This short story gives the reader a plunging overview of the long saga that is Manjipoor: its politics, history, and the ruler that events swirl around, Pontifex Valentine.

In a time when different species were not so congenial, Pontifex Valentine gave orders that a city be excavated. One human and one indiginous life-form would be co-leaders. But then the Piurivar co-leader was murdered.

Valentine uncovers hidden secrets, and discovers the secret of the shrine while keeping the guardian of the shrine from fulfilling his duty.

Who murdered the Piurivarian? (view spoiler)
