Tristan Liones, son of Meliodas and Elizabeth, is shown training with a boy. Suddenly, his demon blood takes over and he hurts the boy.
He has also been close to his parents’ friends. Gowther, for example, was responsible for teaching him how to ride a horse.
The young boy has strongly inherited powers from both his parents. As a result, he can heal people using his goddess powers.
Meliodas wants Tristan to become a holy night and fight evil, while he has other ambitions. In a conversation with his mother, he confesses that he is more interested in helping others than fighting.
One day, mysterious soldiers attack fairies, giants and other magical creatures and capture them. The children are saved by a mysterious fairy boy. Those that had been captured earlier are devoured by a human who is hell-bent on revenge against magical creatures.
The human uses the power to place a curse on Elizabeth. Tristan tries to save her but isn’t powerful enough. Although he does identify the priest responsible for the curse. He makes his way to the fairies’ forest for another remedy.
Meliodas is worried and asks Gowther to track him. The latter also uses his powers to make King, Diane and Ban aware of the situation.
On the way, Tristan finds the fairy boy and the young ones. Together, they battle the soldiers under the control of the human.
The fairy boy seems to recognise Tristan, but he doesn’t. During the fights, Tristan gains respect from the fairy boy, who is also powerful.
The Seven Deadly Sins: Grudge of Edinburgh Part 1 ending explained in detail:
Who is Deathpierce?
The fairy tells Tristan about the nature of Edinburgh. 20 years ago, vampires had laid waste to the kingdom.
Meliodas and The Seven Deadly Sins later wiped them out. A group of survivors rebuilt the kingdom but it collapsed again due to its new ruler.
This turned out to be Deathpierce, who was part of the first anime. In fact, he was a Holy Knight himself, and a subordinate to Assistant Great Holy Night Denzel Liones.
During ‘The Seven Deadly Sins’, Denzel offered his body to the Goddesses to fight the demons. However, they betrayed him after taking over. A demon easily killed Denzel later.
This is the reason for Deathpierce’s hatred of magical creatures. He abandoned Liones due to its ruler being a Goddess and Demon. To take revenge against Meliodas, he cursed the one person he cannot live without.
After understanding the gravity of the situation, Tristan decides to go to Edinburgh with the fairy to stop Deathpierce.
Does Tristan save the magical creatures?
The magical creatures that were captured earlier are spotted by Tristan and the fairy. They fight together against Deathpierce’s soldiers.
After defeating the soldiers and rescuing the magical creatures, the priest from earlier appears with two evil creatures.
Tristan immediately recognises him and barges into the battle but the priest escapes. The fairy asks others to leave, intending for the two of them to fight alone.
Who is Lancelot?
The fairy dispatches his opponent, who is shocked by his skill. Tristan is struggling during his battle and his demon blood threatens to take over him again.
Looking at the situation, the fairy saves Tristan. Figuring out that his arrows aren’t working, he transforms and takes it out with a spear.
In this form, Tristan recognises him. He is the same boy Tristan had unintentionally hurt earlier. He is Lancelot.
Lancelot is the son of Ban and his wife, the fairy Elaine, who is also King’s sister. This explains why Lancelot has two forms. The character will also play an important role in the sequel; ‘Four Knights of the Apocalypse’, being one of the four protagonists.
