Violet assists Aaric by keeping his identity a secret and guiding him to their squad, hoping he will join them. Aaric, aware of his father’s secretive venin conspiracy and disagreeing with it, has joined the Riders Quadrant to challenge these policies.

He shares with Violet that his brother Halden also knows about the conspiracy but isn’t in the Quadrant, implying Halden’s acceptance of the lie. Violet then seeks Aaric’s help to retrieve vital journals from the Royal Archives, a secret section of the Basgiath War College’s Archives.
