As Devitt explored the Old Nichol Street Rookery and the mist surrounding it, he met a man trying to compose a score with a violin. The man was having difficultly because his muse, whom he referred to as the beautiful Daphne with the angelic voice, had passed away. According to the violinist, Daphne often wore a red dress. When Devitt put a doll in front of the window that resembled Daphne, the composer was inspired to finish his work. He asked Devitt to take his violin to Daphne's mausoleum. Before they parted ways, he told Devitt to look for the Simurg.
