Elphin, Seer of Truth
Short: Disappeared before anyone could notice.

Long: After the war, Elphin disappeared without a word. Several months later, an official announcement was made in Etruria that Prince Myrddin was alive. The prince that hid his identity to help General Roy in the war... That story is now a favorite among bards and writers.


Death quote

Argh... This wound... I must retreat...
— Elphin

Let there be peace in your dying heart...
— Elphin in the final chapter
