In early 1626, the Ducks brought a claim to Prince Kallyr demanding compensation for the Duck Hunt. Claims were made against the Balmyr, Cinsina, Colymar, Dinacoli, Locaem, and Malani for their participation in the murder of hundreds of ducks. Many refused or at least refuted the claims, and Boldhome was filled with dissension. Kallyr was said to have welcomed the news that the Lunar Army was seen marching again, as battle was preferable to the squawking of endless legal claims.
