The halls of the castle glowed with a brilliant golden light. Sunlight shone through beautiful stained glass windows, leaving rich patterns on the stone floor. A young man kneeled before Haewa, his pale skin a stark contrast to the red carpet underneath. Haewa drew a long broadsword from a sheath at his belt. He touched on either side of the kneeling man's blonde head. The man looked up and stared into Haewa's green eyes.

"Rise, Noeseong." Haewa bellowed. "Our fifth pillar."

The other pillars in the audience clapped as Noeseong stood up and walked toward them.

"It is truly an honor to become one of your members." he said shaking Sigan's hand.

"I have to say, it sure is shocking that it took this long." Sigan snickered.

Geolda leaned over and slapped him in the back of the head.

A Month Later

Noeseong was still unpacking his bags when Geolda walked in. She leaned on the door before he turned around.

"Hey." he said, standing up.

"Hey." Geolda walked in and sat down on the bed.

Noeseong sat across from her on the bed. "What's up?"

"Not much. Just came by to give you this." She handed him a scroll.

"Thanks." He took the scroll and she walked out of the room.

He sat down at the desk and unfurled the scroll.

"Dear Noeseong, welcome to the Five Pillars. We hope you are ready to protect the order of the worlds from the Darksome Knight." He read aloud. "What a waste of time." He tossed the letter behind him and it landed on the lantern, knocking it over.

"Oh boy." Noeseong rushed over to set the lantern right. As he picked up the letter, his fingers grazed the writing and felt something odd. He smiled and pulled a key out of his pocket. Looking to make sure no one was there, he opened a secret drawer and slid the scroll in.

He knew this scroll would be important. Somehow.
