In his palace, Charles V can't wait face to the opposition always bigger which fights against his army. Meanwhile, Zares assures that all the secrets of the mysterious cities of gold will put the world into the Charles Quintes hands if he can wait a bit.
In the monastery, Esteban, sadly says to Father Marco his deep thoughts. He is terribly sad because of his father's death, the Travelled Prophet. Of course, Father Marco doesn't believe a word about the Cities of Gold and the Child of the Sun, but he proposes to Esteban another adoptive family. Zia and Tao arrive but Esteban completely refuses to follow them and gives his medallion to Tao, heir of the Mû Empire.

In the tavern, we learn that Rico's son was taken away by Zares and that the scared one is in fact, a soldier of Zares who was commended to execute Rico and his son, but finally, he couldn't.
