King Ilex of Halethiris, who fears the further expansion of Vanara, attempts to resurrect the glory of his forest kingdom by bringing conjurers and witches into his court to lay enchantments and spells upon the forest. They require a maiden who is pure of body and of heart, and his daughter Islindia agrees to be their subject. Their spells fail to bring back the days of glory, but leave Islindia with the power to bring about the past temporarily into the present through her dreams and memories. It is this power that brings her to the attention of Secundur, and he quickly becomes infatuated with her beauty.
