Tric and Heppa enjoy the opening of the Full Bloom Festival. He tries his hand at the archery competition, while she participates in the duels.
Once again, units from the Battle for Wesnoth video game inspired characters in this arc. I happen to think the sprite for the Javelineer is adorable, so I had to include that unit among the guards. One of the competitors in the archery competition is a Trapper. Terwaen is obviously a Knight. Mhaev is inspired by the Dune Windrider, a unit that was not retained in the most recent release of the Battle for Wesnoth, version 1.16.
This arc contains spoilers for the Battle for Wesnoth campaign Eastern Invasion, as well as references to Liberty.
