The episode begins with the Darkling Lords at Iron Mountain, trying to get their power staff's recharged. Merklynn tells them that they must go on a quest for him in order to gain their powers. The Darkling Lords are less then pleased and decide to look elsewhere for magical assistance, in this case they find the old witch Heskedor. After some flattery by Darkstorm, Heskedor agrees to help them and gives Darkstorm a potion which will trap a Spectral Knight in their beast form ? forever.
Darkstorm forms a plan to trap Leoric, which involves terrorising a small village using the Dagger Assault, disguised as a monster. The plan works well and the villagers called on the Spectral Knights for protection. The villagers ask Leoric to slay the beast (much to the grim of Arzon).
When Leoric reaches the town he is shown where the creature lives and rides up there, only to be ambushed by the Darkling Lords. A fight ensues and Leoric is forced to change into his magical form to escape. As he does so Darkstorm dowses him with the magical potion (turning him red) and forcing him to stay in his lion form.
As he returns to the village he is attacked by the villagers, who mistake him for another monster. As Leoric flees they meet the Darkling Lords, who inform the villagers that the monster devoured Leoric. Fletchin (one of the village women) is moved and returns to New Valark to let the other Spectral Knights know.
The Spectral Knights decide to hunt the monster which killed Leoric, whilst both the Darkling Lords and the villages also hunt it. As the groups look for the monster, Fletchin is sent into some monoliths to look. She stumbles across the creature which carves his name into one of the stones. Fletcher begins to understand that the creature is actually Leoric, and tries to tell the other villagers, who don?t listen to her.
As Leoric flees from the villagers and the Darkling Lords he falls into one of the traps which the Spectral Knights have set. Just as Cryotek is about to kill him Fletchin runs up scream about how the beast is in fact Leoric. The Spectral Knights free him and quiz the Bearer of Knowledge in order to find out how he was infected.
Witterquick then travels to Heskedor to get a potion, but he uses all of his magical power to get there and has to get back on foot.
Whilst the other Spectral Knights wait for Witterquick's return, some of the farmers spot them and report back to Darkstorm. A fight insues once more until Witterquick arrives with the antidote and Leoric can transform back. The villagers and the Spectral Knights and they all attack the Darkling Lords, who then flee.
