Flardrynn talks with his doughter and tels her that he doesn't want her to hang out with such vile creatures such as Chromatic Dragons (even half dragons). She explains that they aren't actual half black dragons, but that they killed a black dragon and took its power. Flardrynn explains that he still doesn't trust them as such a ritual has to have some effect on their minds but after William casts a ritual to turn them back to they alignment they had before the ritual, Mr Liadon eased and explained that he wasn't actually who he appears to be.
He tels her about the fact that he is a steel dragon and that he is at the end of his life but still hasn't found his soul bound to distribute his treasure and asks her if she would fulfill this important task. She humbly accepts this task and they agree to go with him to his hoard. Unfortunately Mr Liadon tels them that he cannot go through The Ways so they have to go by ship.
