Something is stalking the streets of Thessalonika, killing anyone caught outside at night. In this panicky environment, someone as different as Arak is bound to attract unwanted attention.

But, he's rescued by a barmaid and her father, who reveal that they (through magical means) are the cause of the Stalker's existence; they plan to use it to drive the Byzantines from their city. However, when the Stalker (actually a hydra) attacks Satyricus, Arak manages to destroy it with fire.

The previous night, a magical cloud had descended upon the camp, killing all the horses. The campaign is over.
