The first chance Valiant gets to command a force as a knight proves a formidable assignment: Mordred's men are causing trouble in outlying lands, still holding a personal grudge against Valiant for exposing him as a traitor to Camelot's cause. His reasons for being concerned with whether he will be a strong commander increase when an attack in a searched tavern sees an injured Denys captured, and while spying on Mordred he sees that Owen, his father's former weapons master and friend wishing to see Cynan dead rather than tried for crimes including his family's murders, is a supporter of Mordred.
