Lazulis Castle. Zael first sees the Ballroom when he and the other mercenaries are assigned guard duty at the Castle. Noble men and women attend the ball thrown to celebrate Calista's coming wedding to Jirall. The hall is large and beautiful with marble flooring and a red carpet for dancing.
At the front sit three ornate chairs, one for the Count and two others for Calista and Jirall. To the right and left of the chairs are exits to a balcony that looks out into the city.
