Ishiro walks into the Truthseeker guild hall, and slowly strides to the fireplace.
He turns and looks at all the faces out before him, glowing in the flickering fire light. Then turns back to the fire. Slowly and carefully he reached up to his chest and removes the Truthseeker coat of arms from his gi, and places it on the mantle next to the blood stained one of the lost warrior Kreegur.
For a moment his hand lingers on the two emblems, then pulls away. Turning again, Ishiro walks slowly out of the guild hall.
