Sins of the Fathers[]


At the time Gabriel traveled to the castle, Rittersberg was suffering from strange weather phenomena in June, causing castle and surrounding area to have winter-style weather. No one knew why the weather was so strange. But it might have had something to with the Ritter curse.

It's also mentioned that the strange weather patterns were affecting places all around the world with strange unseasonable weather.
