1. Godflame – See Season 1
Maghra, a newcomer to the Alkenny tribe that has resided for centuries inside a gorgeous woodland terrain, gives birth to two infants in a dystopian future when the human species has lost its sense of sight.
Paris, a former companion, is there to help her. Meanwhile, Queen Kane, the queen of Kanzua and the Witchfinder army, has instructed Tamacti Jun, the Witchfinder General, to hunt down any ‘witches’ – those who advocate the notion of vision or disseminate the information of ‘Jerlamarel,’ a man with the capacity to see.
Baba Voss, the adopted father of the babies and Maghra’s companion, prepares the hamlet for fight against the Alkenny settlement. Gether Bax, a member of the tribe, betrays the Alkenny by telling Tamacti Jun the location of the village, as well as the birth of the infants and rumors that their father is the legendary Jerlamarel.
The Witchfinder army flees after a violent struggle between Baba Voss and the Alkenny to defend the village. With their location leaked and the Witchfinder army closing in on them, Baba Voss and Paris follow Jerlamarel’s hints and guide the Alkenny to a recently found bridge that allows them to escape the valley. Baba Voss blows up the bridge, stopping their pursuers from catching up with them. The Alkenny locate a new spot to dwell after several days of traveling.

Baba Voss is attacked by a bear while hunting in the wilderness with the two infants, but is saved by an unknown guy. Jerlamarel exposes himself to be the guy.
He asks Baba Voss to nurture his children and keep them safe until they are older, and he tells him that he has placed a box holding “knowledge” as a present for the children under a nearby waterfall. Baba Voss returns with a package containing dozens of books. Meanwhile, Gether Bax maintains his dissatisfaction with Voss’ leadership of the Alkenny.
They discreetly engage another tribe member, Bow Lion, as a Shadow (a person adept in gathering information stealthily), to spy on Paris, along with his aunt Souter Bax. When Maghra, Baba Voss, and Paris realize that the babies, now known as Kofun and Haniwa, can see, they resolve to keep quiet about it for the next twelve summers.
Gether Bax, who is aware of this knowledge, sends a message in a bottle down the river. After twelve summers, Paris goes against Maghra’s wishes and tells Kofun and Haniwa that Jerlamarel is their biological father and gives them the box of books to read and learn from.
3. Fresh Blood – See Season 1
Several years later, Kofun and Haniwa are approaching maturity and have spent the last few years studying Jerlamarel’s books to obtain knowledge and talents.
Meanwhile, Witchfinder General Tamacti Jun comes to Queen Kane’s court after failing to discover them for many years, and Queen Kane authorizes his desire to kill himself rather than be executed as a penalty for his failure. When Queen Kane hears Gether Bax’s word about the Alkenny’s position, she has a change of heart about Tamacti Jun and orders him to hunt for the youngsters once more. Gether and Souter Bax’s incestuous relationship resulted in a stillborn and damaged child in the Alkenny’s settlement.
As a result, Baba Voss, Maghra, and Paris, as well as a few younger Alkenny, seek out a neighboring ‘festival’ to urge tribe members to seek partners outside their tribe.
Unbeknownst to them, Kofun and Haniwa are following closely behind. When the gang arrives to the festival, they learn that the Witchfinder’s tales about witches have spread, and they witness the burning alive of innocent people. Slave traffickers kidnapped Kofun. Haniwa alerts her parents, and the gang follows the slave smugglers to an abandoned mining pit.
Before carrying out a dramatic rescue of Kofun, Baba Voss confesses to his family his humiliation as a former slave dealer. When the tribe returns to the Alkenny hamlet, the Witchfinder army is about to launch an attack.
4. The River – See Season 1
Baba Voss, Maghra, Paris, Kofun, and Haniwa flee with Bow Lion as the Witchfinder army invades the Alkenny village. Baba Voss takes the gang to a river and a raft that he has secretly built.
Gether Bax betrays the tribe once more, leading the Witchfinders to the river in pursuit of the party before finally catching up with them.
Before Haniwa severely wounds Gether Bax and the tribe flees downriver, the gang defends itself from attack. Meanwhile, Queen Kane’s parliament meets and expresses dissatisfaction with the amount of money used over many years to locate Jerlamarel’s offspring.
Shortly later, two members of parliament, Lord Dune and Lady An, scheme to assassinate Queen Kane, but the conspiracy is overheard by the Queen’s lady-in-waiting Nyrie, who reveals the scheme. Back near the river, Paris hands Kofun and Haniwa a final letter from their father. Jerlamarel’s location is specified in the letter. The gang decides to follow the directions and settle in for the night around the campfire.
The gang discovers their weapons, as well as a little bag carrying a valuable item belonging to Maghra, stolen the next morning. Meanwhile, with the assistance of Nyrie, Queen Kane murders Lord Dune and Lady An after being misled into a trap. Queen Kane destabilizes the Kanzua dam, forcing it to collapse and drown the settlement, and swears to track out Jerlamarel personally.
5. Plastic – See Season 1
After the Kanzua dam collapses, the valley floods, and Queen Kane and Nyrie flee. Baba Voss, Kofun, and Haniwa return to the river to look for the missing things and discover a scavenger village nearby.
Haniwa breaks into the colony and finds the lost artifacts, but is ambushed by a lone man. Baba Voss and Kofun arrive to save her. The lone resident is identified as Boots, another of Jerlamarel’s children with the capacity to see.
Boots swears his allegiance to Baba Voss on the condition that he be allowed to accompany the gang on their voyage. Meanwhile, two Shadow Warriors assault Queen Kane, Nyrie, and her driver. Queen Kane is captured and taken to a nearby silk manufacturing settlement known as the City of Worms, where she is presented to its leader, a man named Cutter.
Nyrie and the driver are killed, while Queen Kane is captured and taken to a nearby silk manufacturing settlement known as the City of Worms, where she is presented to its leader, a man named Cutter. Cutter, unaware of her actual identity, enslaves Queen Kane. Haniwa returns the tiny bag to Maghra by the river.
The Witchfinder army tracks down the gang once more, forcing them to flee into the woods. While Baba Voss and the rest of the party fight off their pursuers, Maghra and Paris seek refuge. Maghra emerges from concealment and faces Tamacti Jun, the Witchfinder General. The object in Maghra’s purse turns out to be a ring that is only worn by royalty. Tamacti Jun bows before Maghra and greets her as Princess Maghra of House Kane as she hears the familiar sound of the ring’s rattling.
6. Silk – See Season 1
Maghra explains to Tamacti Jun that her dying father, the previous King of House Kane, picked her over her older sister, now revealed to be Queen Kane, as his heir years ago.
Maghra informs Tamacti Jun that it was his deciding vote that saw Queen Kane emerge as ruler instead, despite the fact that she has no proof other than her word. Meanwhile, in the City of Worms, a slave named Cora befriends the imprisoned Queen Kane, who subsequently confides in her regal rank. Cora is discovered to be pursuing information on Cutter’s orders.
Before Cutter pulls a royal amulet from Queen Kane’s breast, he brings her to him. Back at the river, Boots falsely claims to have witnessed Maghra’s death and then leads the gang to a cave where they are held captive. A lady claiming to be Boots’ mother approaches the gang and offers to assist them in escaping if one of them kills Boots for his previous deeds.
Baba Voss fights against numerous of their captors, allowing Kofun, Haniwa, Paris, and Bow Lion to reach the surface before narrowly escaping alive. Nearby, Boots agrees to be kidnapped by the Witchfinder army and sent to Maghra.
Soon later, couriers bring a ransom message from Cutter to Tamacti Jun, alerting them of Queen Kane’s incarceration and the royal amulet as confirmation of her identity. Maghra agrees to let Boots serve as her lieutenant, and he offers to find her sister.
7. The Lavender Road – See Season 1
After capturing the emissaries from the City of Worms with the aid of Boots, Tamacti Jun tortures them in order to discover their position.
Tamacti Jun takes Maghra, Boots, and the rest of his army to rescue Queen Kane, leaving a small group of soldiers behind to look for Maghra’s family. Tamacti Jun locates the City of Worms and sends Boots to survey the region before infiltrating the spot himself.
After murdering the guards, he locates the injured Queen, who has been aided by Cora to overpower Cutter and strangle him with her chains amid the hubbub. Maghra arrives to assist her sister, who figures out who she is.
Queen Kane admits that when fleeing Kanzua, she destroyed the dam in order to murder her opponents. Tamacti Jun is enraged by her self-centered behavior and wonders if Maghra might be a better monarch replacement.
Meanwhile, the others continue walking until they come to The Lavender Road, a lavender-lined lane claimed as a way to Jerlamarel’s location. While attempting to traverse a mountain pass, the gang encounters opposition, and Bow Lion is hurt.
The guards only let Kofun and Haniwa to walk via a bridge to the House of Enlightenment because they expose themselves as Jerlamarel’s offspring. Baba Voss demands that Kofun and Haniwa continue on their way to their fate.
Baba Voss indicates that they are not going and will remain near as they retreat out of earshot with Bow Lion and Paris. Kofun and Haniwa continue across the bridge, where they are greeted with dazzling electrically powered spot lights for the first time in their life.
8. House of Enlightenment – See Season 1
Jerlamarel enters and greets the twins as they enter the House of Enlightenment, a former jail that has been turned into a village with electricity, hot water, and a large library.
He introduces them to a half-dozen other sighted people, all of whom are his children. The two understand that Jerlamarel sees himself as a savior of mankind, chosen by God to restore eyesight to the earth.
A badly injured Bow Lion is left in the hands of another clan nearby by Baba Voss and Paris. Meanwhile, Tamacti Jun agrees with Maghra that Queen Kane must quit or suffer severe consequences in the City of Worms. Cora approaches Boots and tries to sway his opinion. Maghra advises Queen Kane of the options available to her, but that the final decision would not be hers.
Back at the House of Enlightenment, Kofun awakens to find Jerlamarel discreetly negotiating the twins’ transfer to a Colonel from the Trivantian tribe acting on behalf of a mystery General seeking Baba Voss’ offspring. Jerlamarel offers to exclusively provide Haniwa to the Colonel, which he accepts.
Kofun is apprehended and imprisoned before being confronted by Jerlamarel, who is unable to persuade Kofun of the consequences of his actions. Jerlamarel instructs guards to execute Kofun after he assaults him.
Outside, Baba Voss saves Kofun, and the two return to the town. Baba Voss discovers Jerlamarel gave Haniwa over to General Edo Voss, Baba Voss’ brother, and Kofun turns off the generator. Before escaping and reuniting with Paris, Baba defeats and blinds Jerlamarel in fighting.
Tamacti Jun and Maghra urge Queen Kane for an answer at the City of Worms, but Boots comes and gravely wounds Tamacti Jun, ostensibly working with Cora. Maghra and Queen Kane appear, addressing the Witchfinder army as joint rulers and announcing Tamacti Jun’s suicide due to humiliation, before Maghra orders the army to search for her family on the Lavender Road.
When Baba Voss, Kofun, and Paris find a massive abandoned city, they decide to preserve Haniwa.
