Wizard's First Rule chapter one summary and miscellaneous information.
Synopsis EditRichard Cypher, a woods guide, traveled through the Upper Ven forest in search of any clues that could lead to who killed his father, George Cypher and why. As he investigated for clues, he was attacked by a thorn on a vine, the same one that he saw in the message jar that his father used while gone. Richard pondered what his father was trying to tell him. After being bit by the vine, he saw something large and red flying through the air, but did not know what it was. The chapter concluded with Richard seeing four men following a woman as he looked over Trunt Lake.
Richard was searching for a vine that his father left behind for him to find. That vine would later be named by Zedd. He was bitten by the vine that would cause him to be deathly ill by the time he shows up at Zedd's house in chapter six. The vine would appear again in Chainfire.
