Nadbor met Ciri after his mother, Zola, brought her home. He was not as welcoming to Ciri as his mother. He surmised that she was trying to outrun the war. He then said that his mom was a bleeding heart and felt bad for Ciri so she took her in. At this, Zola smacked him in the head and asked Ciri to teach her son some manners. Suddenly, a fireball could be seen shooting across the sky, signaling Nilfgaard's arrival.
