The Lost Legion
Shamshir’s Hollow was a village on the borders of the Shadowland known as Walker’s Realm. It was abandoned in the early Descending Fire by all young people, who fled the increasing influence of the corrupted Essence. Six elderly people remained, among them Vokun, who was the adoptive grandfather of Sunflower, a little girl left behind by the refugees.
Sunflower came aboard Lord Fang’s boat, while the six old people asked Harkon for a swift death. They drank themselves unconscious, and he killed them.
