If you notice the first sentence in the first panel, you may recognise the 'turun' expression meaning 'fate', like in Túrin Turambar. OK, last time I get pedantic about Quenya, promise :D
Thing is that this is the moment we realise this whole story spins around Brent (well, that's in case you didn't notice until now; hey, you had some hints). Besides, we also get the right impression about Eldar. These are not the friendly, hospitable Elves we see in the Lord of the Rings. These are some bitter space thugs who think themselves way above all other species, including of course mankind, which they deem hardly better than dirty apes. So they have absolutely no remorse about ordering an attack on civilian population, if that gives them any military advantage.
High Farseer Ellinderelion has decreed death upon Brent, but he understandably doesn't feel too happy about the idea. What will happen?
Remember that the comic is 48 pages long and we've reached page 45. It is my intention to publish the three remaining ones next week, so stay tuned if you wanna know how this part ends...
If you want to catch up, all the previous stuff can be found HERE.
Beware! The end is nigh!
(Oh, I've always wanted to say that)
