They flee and start a rebellion against the king. Meanwhile, Gabrelle Pok, the alchemist, plots to gain half of the kingdom. In his cellar, he has reanimated a super-strong monster made from body parts. He has also hired the dancer Trelinka to seduce Conan and drug him so that his men will think that he has gone insane and leave him.
