Thoughts of escaping from Chimaera for the moment put aside, Thor faces an even more daunting challenge. Manipulated into a Try - a duel to the death - with the Ochre Ring's Top, one can't help but question Third's guiding hand in the events playing out.
It's a day for revelations. Heading out once more in search of answers, Thor cannot trust Third's motivation behind joining their new ring. It seems he's not the only person paying special attention to this ranking member of the Ochre Ring.
Many years have passed since Thor first arrived on the hostile planet, years in which the boy has grown up into the formidable Top of the Ochre Ring. Older and wiser, the young man still dreams of one day becoming the Beast King and escaping his ill-deserved fate.
