Ree Po scoffs at the ancient Chinese legend that for every man there is a swan.....a swan which makes its way to heaven when the man dies. When Ree captures Ming Ta's white swan and attempts to kill it, the Heap intervenes, freeing the swan and allowing the old Sage to go to heaven. Enraged, Ree Po, while trying to elude the muck monster, runs into a black swan.....Ree's own swan, which he kills, thus killing himself in the process!
