In this chapter, we are introduced to a new character named Alphonse. He is a young man who has just returned from the Crusades. He has just witnessed the death of one of the leaders of the Christian Crusades, and he is shocked to learn that the man who was killed was the leader of the Muslim minority in the area. He tells us that he saw the body of the leader buried within the soul of the dead man, and that the body was sustained by the "power of the rage" within the man. He also reveals that there is another man who is also in the same rage as the leader, and this man is the same man who killed the first man. .
