Ferdinand and his guild ventured across the seven seas to the ends of the world. There, they discovered a temple where a powerful djinn slumbered deep within. Enraged at being awoken by the curious intruders, it attacked the troupe with overwhelming force. Yet Ferdinand remained steadfast in the face of certain doom. In the instant before the djinn landed the finishing blow, the spirits of Ferdinand's departed allies materialized and deflected the strike. They had sworn to protect their leader, even in death.
