The Queen asks for Erin and her Ohju (Lilan) to be her guard, but Erin explains the risk of Lilan killing pretty much everyone if she’s put in battle (which was what caused the destruction of an entire kingdom in the past) sine Erin has not been controlling her with force. She does not want Lilan to be abused of put in a cage like the other Ohjus are, but she is willing to offer her life to prevent Lilan from attacking anyone.
The Queen is a nice lady and understands, and says she’ll let Erin and Lilan live in peace and they don’t have to be her guard.
THEN OF COURSE, NOW THAT EVERYTHING’S CLEARED UP, THE QUEEN FUCKING DIES FROM THE INJURY SHE GOT WHEN THE TOHDAS ATTACKED, AND NOW THE EVIL UNCLE AND HER IMPRESSIONABLE GRANDDAUGHTER ARE IN CHARGE AND BASICALLY NOW ERIN IS TOTALLY SCREWED BECAUSE THEY WANT HER TO BE THE ROYAL GUARD OR SHE AND LILAN ARE PROBS DEAD.
EVERY NICE PERSON ERIN KNOWS ON THIS SHOW IS DYING I’M SCARED.
