In this short scene, we are introduced to the protagonist of the story, who is a mid-level officer in the army. He is a member of the elite group of soldiers who are known as the "warriors." He is also known as a "mid - level officer" because he has the power to act first, report later, and punish those who fail to do so. He tells the protagonist that he will not surrender until he has killed all the "ignorant idiots" who call themselves "elites" . He also tells him that if he dares to come down later, he will be strapped to an icicle again. The protagonist then tells the story of his parents, who died from guarding the "luming county." The protagonist says that he cannot bring shame to his parents' military medal, because he believes that "scum like ruyun" is only a "minor minority." He asks the protagonist what he thinks the protagonist's next move will be. He suggests that the protagonist take revenge on the protagonist for killing him, and that he should keep a watchful eye on him. If the protagonist wants to over throw him, he should join hands with the protagonist.
