Sae stood oustide the capitol city's gates, watching as the smoke rolled up from the towers of the castle. Everything had burned, it seemed, and nothing was left untouched. Bodies littered the streets, some burned, some killed by other means. Gently patting his chesnut-colored mare on the neck, Sae muttered, "Guess we've gotta go somewhere else...Maybe the eastern realms...I hear that they don't care where you come from." Sighing, he swung onto the horse, turning her around. Glancing behind him once more, frowning at the now-lifeless city, Sae forced himself to ride away, deciding to follow the road away from it until he reached the next city. If it was as destroyed as this one had been, he would ride to the east, and give up on the realm completely. As he rode, he found that he didn't have as many provisions as he would need, and would soon need to go hunting for game. However, he had no idea how many animals were left, given the circumstances. Deciding that he should soon find a river to follow, he let his hand come to rest on the hilt of his sword, his ashy white hair trailing behind him. Several hours passed before he stopped for a break, tying his horse up. Sitting down beneath a tree, he took a few swigs of water from a skin, sighing as he scanned the horizon, not liking the silence.
