While taming on ice isle, Belan runs across Firebat who is quite excited about finding a true black mare wandering around the island. After explaining how painful it would be to retame due to retame difficulty of 99.9% and after a bit of convincing, Firebat agrees to let Belan kill the mare. :)
The mare is grey, it must be a thief..
Later, Belan met a fellow tamer named misty at Moonglow who described sadly how she had lost connection and lost her mare that day.. Guess what the mare's name was? BlackBeauty. :) Belan neglected to mention she just ended its life a few hours ago..
