You decide to not trust the man. It seems too strange. Yes, Lord Squall accompanied his men, but he was on the backlines. Only the men on the front such as yourself could possibly be within the keep's walls with how quickly you became enclosed. You remove the man's helmet as he beckons you along, and notice something wrong. You certainly don't recognize him and he is almost glowing, giving off the light you thought to be attributed to the torches. You behead him with conviction, and charge up the stairs. Unfortunately, this keep is much more a maze than you had anticipated.
