Refreshed from sleep and an ample meal, the erstwhile gladiators follow High Templar Liticus through the City of Lions to their new home, a house in the Templar District.
The journey takes them past the Stel House with its twelve sword-capped towers (and a warning to stay clear of Stel affairs), past the foreign quarter (“full of rabble” and crime), into the artisan quarter, through the opulence of the High Quarter. They see the great mural depicting King Hamanu defeating “trolls” with a flaming sword, and then into the Templar District itself.
The Templar District itself is symbolic of the order and law brought to the city by the Templars: each house, road, and alley is perfectly aligned into neat rows. Each house, including the house assigned to Dahnkain and his retinue, is a three story structure with the top floor painted red and the lower two floors painted yellow.
Once there, the High Templar gives Dahnkain his stipend and leaves him to settle into his new role and his new dwelling place.
