Serolan Iblis Malaka is in her room resting relatively comfortably. Tamarie goes about investigating the rooms nearby; Sir Tirn of Selvos investigates the blood on the abbess, and Maketa Seenaë Dyren gets her cleaned up and changed.
Seenaë searches the abbey with her taint sight; as she walks followed by one of the Orbaalese, she runs into Tamarie and another guard. During her walk, she sees a bright bloom of someone making a godly connection near the guest house. Seenaë investigates this, explaining to her companion what she is doing; he states that he has a sister who has a similar ability.
It seems that Tirn has reached out to another god. She will speak with him about this in the morning.
Tirn collects the party together in the guest house and tells everyone what happened to him the night before. He received answers from a deity outside the usual pantheon, and therefore outside the Concordat. He knows what the murder weapon is; the party goes through their things and through the guest house, then begin to search the abbey.
After some searching, they find the razor in the keeping of Obasaran Peada Tralaer. He is wearing magical gear, ostensibly to keep him warm. Tirn examines his cloak and boots, but instead the cloak makes him harder to see, while the boots can make him walk without a trace. He is the murderer, as the abbess confirms he is the one who attacked her. His real name is Baryn Yaradar, and was sent by the blind prophet to take revenge on Matakea Torold Yisgaraen. The plan was to murder 7 people, before finally killing him. Baryn is locked up and questioned. Seenaë blesses him, and this blessing reveals him to be a faithful Agrikan.
