The Tietra Heiral Incident

Following the defeat of the Corpse Brigade forces at the Brigands' Den, a Corpse Brigade captain named Gragoroth Levigne made a failed assassination attempt on Dycedarg Beoulve, during which Tietra Heiral was taken captive. She was brought to the windmill hut in the plains near the fort, and held by Wiegraf Folles, leader of the Corpse Brigade, as a prisoner. Immediately, Dycedarg's brother Zalbaag and Argath Thadalfus began planning a retaliatory attack on the fort, but Tietra's brother Delita knew that such an attack would likely result in his sister's death, and convinced Ramza Beoulve to attempt a rescue from the south.

The rescue attempt did not go as planned. At Lenalian Plateau, Ramza and Delita encountered and defeated a Corpse Brigade force led by Milleuda Folles. Milleuda herself was killed, and word of this reached Wiegraf's ears. This infuriated Wiegraf, as Milleuda was his sister. Wiegraf had Tietra taken to Ziekden Fortress, placing her directly in the path of Zalbaag and Argath's advance. Ramza and Delita battled their way past Wiegraf's own forces and reached the fort, arriving to see Zalbaag and Argath, the latter of which was armed with a crossbow, confronting Gragoroth, who was holding Tietra captive. As they rushed forward, Argath did the unthinkable: he deliberately shot Tietra. He then immediately fired a second shot which hit Gragoroth. Wounded, the Corpse Brigade soldier crawled back inside as Tietra collapsed.

Delita's anger against Argath boiled over. As Zalbaag left to pursue Wiegraf, Delita surged forward against Argath, and Ramza, disillusioned, joined suit. Argath was slain in the resulting battle, but as Delita returned to Tietra's body, Gragoroth ignited explosives with the fort. Tietra, using the last of her strength, shielded Delita from the resulting explosion. The fort itself was destroyed, and Ramza fled.
