Alicc has been sick for some time and is getting worse. She wants to see the sunset one last time. Arabella, the dog, knows that Alicc is very weak and know that Atal must go to see her. Alicc sees that Atal is injured she uses her powers and heals him, this drains the last of her energy.
Atal is so shocked about what happened that when he tries to catch her she slipped through his arms and falls off the cliff. (Alicc is wearing a dress and boots which is common for most females at the time. Atal had a belt and boots which was common for males to wear.)
Atal is now very determined to save the kingdom for his sister's sake. He storms off to the castle in search of Raoul. (The top of the castle is the same colors as the fief yellow and pink)
