As Knov approaches the palace, he discovers the cocoons that will be used as part of the King's army to attack humanity. He plants a portal in the garden and another at the palace entrance. He then enters the palace and makes his way to the central staircase. He suddenly encounters Taragetter and kills him instantly. He is concerned that he has attracted attention, but luckily for him, he has not. He is forced to remove his shoes to avoid leaving a trail with Taragetter's blood. He reaches the staircase, where he sees Pouf's aura. He is suddenly overcome with fear and begins imagining the torture that he will face if captured and interrogated by the Royal Guards. He decides not to go further, and plants a portal at the staircase before fleeing. At the same time, vans travel towards the palace.
