A grand entrance
In front of a magnificent stained-glass window, the Queen is talking to a messenger.
Messenger: Still no word from our agent!
Elspeth: Drat! Perhaps I miscalculated!
The Roc carrying Ioannes and Jara crashes through the window, taking out part of the surrounding wall. Ioannes staggers towards the Queen.
Ioannes: R-reporting back, your majesty!
Ioannes presents the Eye of the Underworld.
Ioannes: The Caliph's talisman, the Eye of the Underworld!
Elspeth: Outstanding!
Ioannes: Furthermore, I bring you a hostage: the Caliph's own daughter, Princess Jara!
Elspeth: Incredible!
The Queen hands Ioannes another sack of money.
Elspeth: We are most pleased, loyal subject!
Jara: Hostage?
Elspeth: Prepare a suite and a staff of servants for the Royal hostage! Then summon the Royal taylor and the Royal jeweler and...
Ioannes eyeballs the sack of money.
Ioannes: Well... I'll be off.
Queen (off-panel): Then we'll arrange for her introduction at court...

Yeah, Ioannes is a bit of a heel. But being a hostage at a royal court is not all that bad.
