* {{Ungrateful B|astard}}itch: Valerius, who's nowhere as strong nor experienced as Conan risks his life several times and manages to rescue his beloved queen Taramis and kill Salome. Taramis doesn't even ''look'' at him when everything's over and has eyes only for Conan.
** Though Conan recommends Valerius as the new chief of the guard.

Generally considered one of the weaker Conan stories, mainly for it's lack of ShowDontTell and underdeveloped characters, as well as a significant lack of poetic storytelling which Creator/RobertEHoward had become known for (he had just finished writing his first novel, Literature/TheHourOfTheDragon, and rushed out ''A Witch Shall Be Born'' quick [[MoneyDearBoy to pay his bills]]).

Conan, the captain of her guard, is crucified by Constantius and rescued by wandering bandits. Meanwhile, Valerius, another soldier, hid despite his injuries, and in due course discovered the truth of why the queen had suddenly taken to the depths of evil. When Conan attacks, Valerius leads a rescue party and brings out the queen. In desperation, Salome unleashes a monster upon the city, but Conan and his forces vanquish it and kill Salome. Constantius is then [[KarmicDeath crucified]] by Conan as the story ends.
