The Knight Michael hears of the dragon's bane and realizes that the Luck Dragon Star had trained him for this moment. Full of foreboding he rides to their aid. However, before the knight can reach Gladur Nock he is ambushed and imprisoned in the dungeons of the very king he wanted to help. He becomes part of a forced training of arms. The best warriors among them are sent to fight the dragon. Oddly, King Worrah is in no hurry to free the land from the dragon's curse. The actions of the princess Aina are even more bewildering.
