Josiah is a mage serving in the aerial cavalry of Tith Tilendrothael, a Netherese sky city. He and his unit are attacking Lhaoda, a rival sky city that is approaching Tith hidden in a thunderstorm. During their attack, Lhaoda falls from the sky. Josiah saves an old woman from Lhaoda who claims that the phaerimm trapped their city in the thunderstorm and caused it to fall. When the remains of the cavalry reach Tith, they find that it has also fallen, and the survivors must now make their living on land.
