Zed agrees to let Richard join a hunting party while he and Kahlan deals with arbitration request from people, including his own alleged son and would be-apprentice Allard. The stag brings the hunters near Richard's birth town Brennidon, where he can't resist searching anonymously for his roots. He's recognized a woman who 'held him at birth', and presents him to half-brother Mark. The latter hesitates whether to help hide him or turn him over to Darken's troops, who get wind of his presence and take all possible mothers hostage. Written by
