"My name is Fayavan. I am a noble in the court of Karivaayis. I am minister to King Avdeyu Ilnaya," said the man.
"What is in the box?" asked Mithraos.
"Rubies," said Fayavan.
"Why are you carrying rubies alone through this dangerous path?" asked Adharva.
"It is for the oldest prince. He will be coronated in 41 days. The rubies are collected from the source and refined by the smiths of Eliyali tribe towards the east of erstwhile Mahereya," said the noble.
