Berusal, Vanat, and a few other Scions escape and go into hiding at the shadowport Asylum. The surviving Scions, under the leadership of Heskal, encounter the Outlander and wonder why they cannot see the Outlander’s future. The Scions question and engage the Outlander in a series of combat tests which ultimate reveal the presence of the Valkorion inside the mind of the Outlander. Berusal and the other Scions at the shadowport Asylum swear allegiance to the Outlander.
