Chapter 10 Overview

We are introduced to Fok Lyrin, a large scraggly old man with a knack for reminding fellow Myshkans about the injustices of being held captive by people from another planet. He manages to collect a small group of followers and takes them to the local sanctuary which is meant as a reprieve to the Myshkans since they are no longer allowed to go to their own main temple. There he erects temporary shelter for his followers in a depression around the sanctuary. The Kevutians discover the holdout and decide to lay siege to the whole group by surrounding them. He and his followers are slowly starving to death. The Kevutians, however, are not willing to risk massive bloodshed so a standoff with the defiant Myshkans is underway.
