They also find that Captain Fate’s Magus Sword was left behind in the attack, and they take it into their possession while they go to the Citrusville library to learn of it’s origins.
There they are attacked by Fate’s men, who have come to collect the sword, which they realize is the only thing that can kill the pirates. The more John uses the sword, the more he feels connected to it.
