The felon is then gagged and tied up so that he can’t get out of the box. Belladone leaves for the Eastern Merchant District to order a custom weapon from the local master smiths.
En route to the shop, Belladone meets with Pilin, who returned to the city via secret entrance. They exchange few words before Pilin goes back to headquarters and Belladone continues on his way.
