The illness that had been spreading, which was suspected to be caused by rats, finally reached Salz’ family. His father and his brothers went insane with hallucinations at night, but he and Ava were never affected. One evening while experiencing hallucinations, Salz’ father attacked him. Salz had to knock him out with a stone to the forehead to protect himself.
The next day, Salz, his brother Melis, and their grandmother went into town to sell their famous beer. While Salz was in town, a woman asked him to kill rats for her, because he was known for having great aim with a stone. He’d killed rats for many people throughout Hameln.
Later, while Salz’ brother Bertram was hallucinating due to the illness, he threatened to kill Salz with a scythe. When he tried to kill Salz, he accidentally hit Großmutter, killing her.
Salz was so distraught by his grandmother’s death that he didn’t sleep for two days. They had a funeral for her, which was followed by a trial for Bertram in the town house.
At the trial, Bertram claims that killing his grandmother was an accident, because he was trying to kill Salz under the orders of Saint Michael. His father supported his story, turning on Salz for Bertram. The people believed them and pointed out that Salz coughed often, showed signs of being sick, and may have even been the cause of the illness, because he was in a coven. The judge sees this too, so Bertram was set free while Salz was sent to the town’s dungeons.
After a night in the dungeons, Salz was put on trial for bringing the illness to Hameln using magic. Pater Michael and Pater Frederick successfully defended him from being convicted, by proving that Salz couldn’t have caused the sickness. The blame fell back on the rats, so Salz suggested to hire the piper he’d met earlier to lead the rats away. The townspeople agreed, and a messenger was sent to offer the piper this job for a payment of 1000 guilders.
