Interlude: King Edition is the twenty-eighth chapter of Volume 1.
Flos, King of a dying nation, has interrogated the twins who appeared in his throne room (in the previous interlude). Now, he returns to his throne and sitz in it, the first time in years: He claims to have ruled countless thousands of leagues of land, and now that he has been struck by inspiration from Earth, he shall do it again.
He awakes his kingdom, tasks his stewart Orthenon, demands that his allies rally to him and makes the twins from Earth his bodyguards (in training). The King of Destruction has returned!
