1,000 Chains (Part 3)

Upon their arrival to the World Clan’s homeworld, Heporiziel’s and Greymist’s wives greeted them with open arms, laughing quietly amongst each other. It had been over five years since the pair of heroes had been locked in that infernal prison, and they had quite a bit of catching up to do.

During their absence, both Heporiziel and Greymist became grandparents (Heporiziel’s great-great-grandson Ziel had a son, and Greymist’s daughter Ebixal had a daughter), and their brother-in-arm, Upiel, just had one of his grand-daughters wed to a prominent member of the White-Golds.
