- Richard Drucker
- Buddhist monks
Traveler is asked by Hana Gitelman to deliver a message to a man named Drucker in the Kingdom of Bhutan. He enters the country, and easily adapts to his surroundings thanks to his command of languages. Traveling on foot, he soon reaches a village in the mountains. Upon leaving, Traveler falls down an incline and injures himself. He shouts for help before passing out.
When Traveler awakens, he is in a warm bed, tended to by Buddhist monks. A man in grey, Drucker, asks for Traveler's message. Traveler informs him that his message is from Hana Gitelman, to whom Drucker is related.
