Synopsis

After his overwhelming victory at the Battle of Astarte, Reinhard von Lohengramm returns to the Imperial Capital on Odin and is promoted to the rank of Fleet Admiral and appointed as Vice Commander of the Imperial Space Fleet. Together with Siegfried Kircheis, Reinhard visits his sister, Annerose von Grünewald, favoured concubine of Kaiser Friedrich IV.

Kircheis contemplates the past, remembering how he first met Reinhard and Annerose; how Annerose was taken from her family, and how the loss of his sister ignited Reinhard's ambitions to depose the tyranny of the high nobles and the Goldenbaum Dynasty.
