His father has arranged his marriage with a beautiful, highborn and virgin young girl named Agnes (Leigh), but Steven is not interested at all until, y'know, he sees her. Agnes is beautiful and very interested in learning how [[FilleFatale seduce men and enjoy love]]. While they are enjoying their blossoming romance, they are caught by Martin's gang, who start a fight with Arnolfini's men and rob them. Agnes founds herself unfortunately hidden in the gang's chariot, and when they discover her, she's [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil raped]] by Martin who's manipulated by Agnes in falling and caring for her (though the attraction is somewhat mutual) and so he wants to [[CrazyJealousGuy keep her to himself]].
Steven does not give up and tries to regain his girlfriend [[StormingTheCastle storming the castle where she hides in]], while we don't know how much exactly Agnes is manipulating Martin to stay alive until the very end.
