Insulted by NickEdit
When protagonist Nichothodes Koryfoides (Nick Mallory) wanders by accident into Loggia City, he sees someone in the crowd who seems to him to be the enchanter Romanov, whom he's trying to find. He runs after the figure, but it turns out to be the Prayermaster, who is gravely offended at being addressed by a peon. This sends Nick to jail, but also gives the Prayermaster the opening he's been seeking, because he too is trying to find Romanov.
Later, after Nick has succeeded in escaping from Loggia City and finding Romanov's island, he's shocked to find the Prayermaster, along with his prayerboys Joel and Japheth, flying in on a helicopter aiming to kill Romanov for having had the gall to help the protect the radiation-stricken embroiderers. It's during this attempted assault that the Prayermaster finally gets his comeuppance.
