Those who were unfairly imprisoned by Lassic were freed. A team of brilliant scientists was dispatched to investigate the cause of the poisonous gasses plaguing the village of Sopia on Motavia and the ocean channels were instantly reopened to help the residents of Drasgow.

By the time the queen reached her eighteenth birthday, Algol was thriving once more. What would have taken most people a lifetime to accomplish, she had done before she even reached adulthood. She had sacrificed what should have been her lighthearted adolescent years for the good of her people and felt no regrets about her decision. As she surveyed her flourishing kingdom from where she stood alone in her palace, however, she could not help but wonder what was next in store for her...
