Synopsis
Cerebus falls in with a couple of thieves, who hire him to help break into a wizard's home and steal the Flame Jewel. The aardvark's previous experiences with sorcery serve him well, and he is able to fight past numerous illusions before killing the wizard. After receiving payment, Cerebus explains to his dismayed comrades that the Flame Jewel was magically linked to the wizard. When he died, the gem reverted to its natural state: a plain walnut.
