Chen begins recalling memories of Roland's siblings:
- eldest brother, the First Prince, great fighter
- 2nd brother, Second Prince, sinister and scheming
- 3rd sister, First Princess, aggressive and savage
- 5th sister, Second Princess, extremely smart
Barov asks Roland why he didn't order the execution of a witch. Roland says he does not buy the Church's propaganda that all witches are evil. Why not release that witch?
Roland and Barov then have breakfast. Barov then shows Roland a coin called Insignia of the Sacred Mountain and Magic Eye from the Witch Cooperation Association. Roland does not recall either of these terms. Barov then explains what witches are.
It’s recorded in ancient books that witches can only find real peace in the Holy Mountain. There, they wouldn’t be reverse bitten by their magic powers, and wouldn’t be troubled by burgeoning desires. There’s no doubt that the so-called Holy Mountain is the birthplace of evil and an entrance from the human world to Hell. I think that only Hell won’t punish this bunch of degenerates.In the past, witches acted solitarily, whether it was to flee or to live in seclusion. But in recent years, the Witch Cooperation Association appeared and made a difference. They wanted to gather all witches and find the Holy Mountain together. For this purpose, the Witch Cooperation Association would even lure other people to become witches. In the Port of Clearwater, there have been many cases of female babies disappearing in the past year, and there are rumors that they were the doings of witches.
This sounds familiar to Chen.
