Claude only arrived at the river at the end of the 10th month. It took 28 days in total to travel from the defence lines at the eastern border to there. He was six days slower than Eiblont and his men, but there were now four floating bridges, which Line 108 helped construct. Colonel Rimandok respectfully welcomed Claude at the crossing point.
Rimandok and Line 114's linesman, Frius, were Claude's former subordinates that used to serve in Thundercrash 1st Folk. The reason for the former's transfer was his injury to his waist, while Frius felt his age catching up with him and applied for a transfer to a local-defence posting.
