At the end of the battle, the Birch Pass seemed to be washed with blood. It ended with Luther losing his life and Shawn getting severely injured. Shawn had been lying on the bed almost to the point of being lifeless. His face writhed in pain as he struggled to get up. Just then Joshua knocked the acupuncture point in Shawn's neck. As a result, the latter passed out and was forced to have a rest.
"The Black Flag Army still has me, so you don't need to strain yourself so much," Joshua said in a low yet decisive tone, glancing at Shawn who was in sleep. Joshua then, turned to Mathew and asked, "Your Highness, shall we continue to attack?"

People were seen running around desperately to save their lives. Houses were getting torched one after another as the arrows with fire jet fell on them. It was as if

The Birch Pass was home to the nationals of the Bright Dynasty, with a small section of merchants of the South Kingdom sharing the space with them. And now that Matthew didn't hesitate to set the entire city on fire, he was not only challenging Francis to open the gate but he was also ready to wage a war against the South Kingdom.
