Trebon is a small town located roughly 70 miles (by road) north of the university. Kvothe goes to the town after hearing about a massacre at the wedding party on the Mauthen farm and the presence of blue fire at the site of the attack. While there, he finds Denna, the only survivor, and begins to investigate the scene.

After investigating the scene they search for Denna's mysterious potential patron. They don't find him, but they do find a pig farmer that tells them that Mautharn found something buried under the house he built and was keeping it as a surprise for his daughters wedding.

Kvothe and Denna later encounter a Draccus, a huge vegetarian fire-breathing lizard. They are able to poison it with denner resin after a lot of trouble, but before it can die it attacks Trebon. Kvothe is able to save the town by binding his loden stone to a Draccus scale causing the large iron wheel on the town church to fall on the beast.

Kvothe awakens in the town inn the next day and is treated like a hero, but one the town doesn't want around because he messes with "dark forces." He discovers that the thing that Mautharn had found is a vase with pictures of the different chandrian and their signs. Kvothe is told this by a girl who fears the chandrian will come for her because she saw the vase. Kwothe performs a fake protection spell to give the girl peace of mind for the rest of her life. Denna has abandoned him, so he heads back the University.
