When [[Dakar]] reveals that [[Arithon]] has invoked his sovereign tie to the land for privacy, Sidir urges [[Dakar]] to request [[Fellowship]] assistance. When the couple are located, Sidir retreats, contrite at his efforts to invade their privacy. A conversation between [[Braggen]], [[Barach]], Sidir, and [[Dakar]] is overheard by [[Jeynsa]], who draws her own conclusions about their discussion of [[necromancy]] in [[Etarra]]. [[Barach]] holds a council with Sidir, [[Feithan]], [[Braggen]], [[Dakar]], and [[Halwythwood]]'s three titled elders. [[Eriegal]] arrives late and covers for [[Jeynsa]]'s disappearance.  When [[Elaira]] returns, she argues that the [[clansmen]] should have allowed [[Arithon]] his free choice to act upon [[Selidie]]'s trap. Later, Sidir informs [[Eriegal]] of the threat of [[necromancy]] and [[Eriegal]] finally reveals that [[Jeynsa]] went after [[Arithon]]. When everyone learns that [[Jeynsa]] actually traveled to [[Melhalla]], Sidir and [[Elaira]] are dispatched to track her down.

===Stormed Fortress===
 +
''[[Third Age]] 5671'': Resolved to return [[Jeynsa]] home, Sidir and [[Elaira]] pursue the girl down the [[River Arwent]]. Sidir distrusts the [[Koriani]] threat that [[Elaira]] represents, but allows her to scry for [[Jeynsa]]'s location. Sidir allows himself to get caught by [[headhunters]] and transported across [[Lake Daenfal]] to be sold as a slave rather than trusting [[Elaira]]'s spells. Outside of [[Shipsport]], Sidir escapes with [[Elaira]]'s help. With [[Atwood]] sealed to them, the pair flee south. During a scrying, Sidir prevents [[Elaira]] from screaming when she realizes that [[Jeynsa]] has traveled to [[Alestron]]. [[Elaira]], and Sidir, joined by [[Dakar]], make their way to [[Alestron]] where they scale the lower wall and are taken captive for a hearing with Duke [[Bransian]] at [[Wyntok Gate]].  Unable to get [[Arithon]]'s whereabouts from [[Dakar]], Duke [[Bransian]] consents to the mandate of [[Melhalla]]'s [[caithdein]] to allow the trio to convince [[Jeynsa]] to leave freely. [[Jeynsa]], dressed in [[caithdein]]'s black, arrives with [[Talvish]], but remains steadfast in her plan to support [[Alestron]].

When approached by [[Mearn]], Sidir agrees to help set up traps in town outside of [[Wyntok Gate]]. [[Fionn Areth]] spots him one evening at a water trough. Sidir refuses to answer the goatherder's questions because he perceives [[Fionn Areth]] to be discourteous. [[Elaira]] approaches Sidir to question his avoidance of [[Fionn Areth]] and convinces him to follow through on [[Arithon]]'s request to be the prince's spokesman. Sidir then discusses his past support of the prince at [[Vastmark]] with [[Talvish]]. When [[Fionn Areth]] arrives, Sidir explains his loyalty to [[Arithon]]. After learning belatedly that [[Arithon]] has arrived in [[Alestron]], [[Jeynsa]] confronts him just before he performs in Dame [[Dawr]]'s home. She is accompanied there by [[Talvish]], Sidir, and [[Fionn Areth]]. Sidir comforts [[Jeynsa]] when the power of [[Arithon]]'s performance breaks through her grief. They are interrupted by [[Bransian]]'s guards, who have orders to bring [[Jeynsa]] into custody. Mortally wounded in the confrontation, he is discovered by [[Dakar]] and [[Talvish]] and offers his consent to be healed to [[Arithon]] and [[Elaira]]. In spite of interference by [[Selidie Prime]], Sidir's healing is achieved after [[Alithiel]] and the [[wards]] in [[Alestron]]'s walls sound in his defense. With the help of [[Mearn]] and Dame [[Dawr]]'s carriage, [[Arithon]], [[Elaira]], [[Dakar]], and Sidir return to the guest tower. After resting, Sidir escorts [[Arithon]] to a closed hearing with Duke [[Bransian]]. [[Arithon]] demands service of the guard who murdered Sidir until [[Jeynsa]] is safe back in [[Halwythwood]]. In the following days, Sidir guards [[Arithon]] as the prince traverses [[Alestron]], listening for a way to awaken the [[ward]]ed walls.

On the day that he acts, [[Arithon]] commands Sidir to see [[Jeynsa]] safely back to [[Halwythwood]]. [[Arithon]] uses his [[Masterbard]]'s arts to awaken [[Alithiel]], and Sidir, [[Elaira]], [[Jeynsa]], [[Mearn]], and [[Fianzia]] use the opening to leave for [[Halwythwood]] by way of the [[Sea Gate]]. Sidir reveals knowledge of a safe clan bolthole on the southern border of [[East Halla]], and suggests that [[Mearn]] and [[Fianzia]] can seek sanctuary with the [[Fellowship]] at [[Methisle Fortress]]. After events at [[Athir]], [[Arithon]] mentions to [[Asandir]] that Sidir will wed [[Feithan]].
