text: One of the slaves who was taken by Yimpang and Pangsha at the destruction of Saochu is currently in Naku's house. He is a small boy of about three years and one can still see the scars of the burns he received when his mother was beheaded and he fell off her lap into the fire. Yimpang has handed him over as a sign of its peaceful intentions (see page 220)
