It is dark, so very dark. A man is waiting. He lights the cigar he is holding with his firebending. He waits on a walk among the yew trees. The ash from the cigar drips twice. Then there is a noise. A single twig snaps. The man makes a flame to see if it is the one he is waiting for. What he sees terrifies him. The man begins to run. Behind him, a huge beast is pursuing him. It is large and terrifying and on the whole, resembles a demonic panda. As the man runs for his life, his chest begins to hurt. Before the man can reach the end of the lane, his heart gives out. The beast turns and walks away, its job done for now. In the morning, two people find him.
Sir Iroh is dead.
