Synopsis:
Magically sent to Khitai by Mad Zandra, Prince Conn encounters a beautiful Khitai maiden sitting in a secluded glade with a young Khitai man. Similar to Romeo and Juliet, the couple appear to be from different clans. A fight between the clans ensues, and Prince Conn helps defend the young couple. However, the young man is captured by his rivals. Conn rescues the man, but the maiden will not accept him back because he shamed himself by being captured. The young man kills himself. Conn and the maiden go to Paikang in search of Kang Lou-Dze, a woman who knew his father. There Conn comes face-to-face with his twin.
