He has been ordered by the Archbishop of York to accompany a churchly delegation that is seeking information concerning an upcoming nomination for a bishopric by King Edward IV.

It is officially labeled as "accidental," but immediately after, another death is discovered and this time a friend of Owen's is accused of the murder, and all signs point to his guilt.
