The valiant duck Herbert and Isis, his beautiful and belligerent Kochaque companion's son is born. As much as the young parents are delighted with this new arrival, tensions are not long in rising. Isis wants to submit her baby to the traditional Kochaque rite of passage. Herbert, judging it far too dangerous, tries to dissuade her. Unable to convince her, he finally decides to kidnap the infant. In the second story, the fight to recover the Dungeon from the hands of the big bad Delacourt still keeps our heroes busy... While Horus has been trying for days to hypnotise the spirits of Terra Amata freed from the Vault of Souls by Delacourt, the Guardian calls on Marvin to come to the thaumaturge's aid. But to get there, he will have to, willy-nilly, make an alliance with a former classmate of his new wife.
