Hinjo and Miko escort the Order to Shojo.

Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Hinjo: —and so he said, "Rectum? I darn near KILLED 'im!"
Hinjo: And that's the story of how I became a paladin.
Roy: That's hilarious.
Miko: Hinjo! Stop fraternizing with the prisoners! They are filthy honorless criminals and are beneath you.

Panel 2

Hinjo (whispering): Uh oh, we better be quiet or the teacher here is gonna keep us after school.
Roy (whispering): What, so you, a fellow paladin of the Sapphire Guard, don't like Miko either??

Panel 3

Hinjo (whispering): Let's just say there's a reason Miko gets picked for long missions. In foreign countries. Which keep her away from home for months at a time.

Panel 4

Hinjo (whispering): What, you didn't think all paladins were like her, did you?
Miko: Your foul little henchman is in here.

Panel 5

They see that Belkar has escaped.
Roy: Oh, this doesn't bode well.
Miko: By the Twelve Gods! He has escaped!

Panel 6

Miko: Hinjo, take the rest of the guards and escort the prisoners directly to Lord Shojo's audience chamber.
Hinjo: Yes, ma'am.

Panel 7

Miko: Do NOT tell them any more amusing anecdotes along the way.
Hinjo: Sigh. Yes, ma'am.

Panel 8

Miko: I am going to track down that halfling personally.
Hinjo: Do you really think you'll be able to find him, Miko.

Panel 9

"Come & Get Me Miko!", "This Way", and large arrows are written on the wall in the dead guard's blood, along with a depiction of Belkar stabbing Miko.
Miko: Yes.

Trivia Edit

  • This is the first appearance of Hinjo, Lord Shojo's nephew and heir.
  • The title could be a play on the Charles Dickens classic, A Tale of Two Cities, or considering the gore, perhaps on the English title of the 2003 South Korean horror film, A Tale of Two Sisters.
