Plot Edit

Ecbatana is Burning Edit

Arslan's practice with Vahriz
Vahriz was dealing with Arslan’s daily swordplay practice but got easily defeated telling that Vahriz is going hard on him but Vahriz stated that it was only the basics and wasn’t considered a real maneuver. After Arslan got dressed, they went on their way to the Queen and Vahriz also lectured him on the importance of swordplay while they were walking.

They found Queen Tahamine on the balcony. She was wishing good luck to the newly appointed soldiers of Pars and the soldiers started to salute her and Arslan. Vahriz waited until Arslan finished talking with the Queen and then, the two of them went to the courtyard. As they entered the courtyard they heard some cries and then Azrael rushed to Arslan, knocking him down. Marzban, Kishward also came near them saying that Azrael likes Arslan more than himself, even though he is its master. After Vahriz teasing him that those birds don’t respect him, gave his report concerning the latest campaign, saying that Pars forces crushed Lusitania and saved their ally, Maryam and the army has returned.

Arslan and Vahriz went to greet King Andragoras and the Marzbans who are returning from the war. The King, called Vahriz and asked him to report all the goings-on during his absence.

3 years passed since then. Arslan had greatly improved his swordsmanship, but still, he couldn’t defeat Vahriz. After their practice ended, a messenger delivered a message to Vahriz, telling that King Andragoras is going to fight against the Lusitanians. After this, Arslan and Vahriz went to the Fields of Atropatene to participate in the battle. Arslan seemed nervous and asked Vahriz if the fog will be a problem, but Vahriz stated that this place is known to them and also the enemy can't see them. A soldier appeared. He said that a problem occurred between the King and Daryun, so they rushed to the king's tent. The king was furious.The king was furious and dismissed Daryun from his post as Marzban, calling him a coward. Lord Vahriz came into the room, punched Daryun and apologised for Daryun’s cocky attitude, trying to calm the King. When they got out, he asked Daryun what does he think about Prince Arslan and made him swear an oath to protect the prince and Daryun did so. The battle was going bad so Vahriz tricked the King into retreating telling him that the Queen is in danger. On their way, they got ambushed by the enemy. Vahriz killed lots of them but got killed by a man wearing a silver mask. It is later revealed that he sent a message about the two princes to his old friend Bahman.
