He has been a squire for a long time and one more task separates him from his goal: a whole night in a chapel without speaking, eating or sleeping. He and his friends are not allowed to go out of the chapel so when a stranger knocks on the door and cries for help, Tiuri is unsure of what to do. Choosing to help the stranger, he runs away to help the Knight with the White Shield on a perilous task to deliver a confidential message to the king over the border, leaving behind his own ambitions.
