|Spoilers from "The Magician's Apprentice"|
Lord Ardalen and Mikken go to Corres Fort in attempt to recover it and prevent other Sachakans from entering, they are ambushed by Sachakans staying to let others into Kyralia. Lord Ardalen is killed, but Mikken is able to escape and return to the Kyralian army.
Mikken regroups at the wine factory in the Noven Ley, and then joins in the exploration of the land. He realises they are being watched by Sachakans just before they attack the group. Jayan distracts them by sending a heatstrike into the flammable whitewater, giving them time to escape, and alert the Kyralian army. The blast knocks Jayan over, and Mikken has to carry him out to safety.
