After gaining notoriety for his great skills, he was tasked to help treat the king's migraines. Unfortunately, his anxiety got the best of him and he was charged with treason. Unwilling to accept jail, he escaped capture but was chased by soldiers. He was eventually cornered into a river and fatally shot by arrows and fell to his supposed death.
