When Devitt tried to escape from the labyrinth and the mist surrounding Old Nichol Street Rookery, he met a man who was trying to compose a score with a violin. The man was having difficultly because his muse had passed away, whom he referred to as the beautiful Daphne with the angelic voice. According to the violinist, Daphne had posed in front of a window wearing a red dress. Devitt put a doll in front of the window that resembled Daphne, which helped the composer finish his work. He asked Devitt to take his violin to Daphne in the mausoleum. Before they parted ways, he told Devitt to look for the Simurg.
