3.1. Location: Arch-Authority Courtroom
Enter Kurtzwell and [Young] Lycentia.
Before I pass judgement, have you anything to say?
The child, is, is he safe?
Far away, where he will come to no harm. Although we suspect your involvement in the murder of our beloved royal couple, we could not find enough evidence to convict you.
But since you were clearly guilty of kidnapping the crown prince, you are hereby sentenced to spend the rest of your life in the Lands Below.
I therefore order an ostracizing collar be fabricated for you and be placed around your neck never to be removed. And should you ever attempt to return to the Lands Above, the collar will tighten until it chokes you to death.
3.2. Location: Lands Above Phenocryst Chamber
Enter [Young] Herman, [Young] Lycentia, and Phenocryst Guards.
