The Carpati believe in myths. Their moon has an atmosphere and at night strange strings of light are visible, but sometimes move or disappear. To the Carpati they are light-fairy nests, and many believe that in ancient times a mysterious class of Bitani were sacred warriors, with the light-fairies their bitter enemies. This is a story encouraged by the Bitani, even taught in school, but Andee resents it, until he meets the mysterious Brothers of the Bitani. Are they the true sacred warriors?
