Hortensia Saga Episode 4 Spoilers

In episode 3, a major protagonist is introduced in the series. Deflott Danowa is a former bounty hunter turned fugitive. Following the rebellion, Charlot, the former king’s son, has become the ruler of Hortensia, with Alexi Baldebron, the Pope of the Orthodox Church of Hortensia, serving as his regent. Alfred and Maurice visit the capital to meet Captain George Dalmas, who asks them to go to Petale Village, where people have been allegedly turned into stone, and conduct a secret investigation there. The Orthodox Church has set up a quarantine zone in and around Petale, and there are rumors that the village is infested by walking corpses.

After Albert and Maurice arrive at Petale with Mariyus and Kuu, they discover that the rumors are true. They save Deflott from a group of walking corpses and learn that he is the son of the village’s priest. Later they are found by three ecclesiastical knights, who try to apprehend Deflott. It is then that a giant corpse appears, attacking everyone present. Using a Requiem flower, Mariyus casts a spell that weakens the creature, and Albert and Deflott kill it. The episode ends as Deflott joins Alfred and his company in their travel to the capital. In episode 4, Alfred and Maurice might visit George to ask him how the ecclesiastical knights found out their identities.
