This issue picks up the story immediately after Rostam's battle with his son, Sohrab, in issue #1. The great warrior is confronted with personal "demons", as well as two very real demons, as he travels to the province of Manzandaran to do battle with his greatest adversary, The White Deev.

In the original text, the 10th c. Shahnameh, "the White Devil" is a being named Div-e Sefid, a figure described by the poet as "mountainous" and with great skill in sorcery. The Div has taken Rostam's king captive, and the warrior ventures deep into the heart of darkness to fight the demon blind. He defeats the monster in the end, standing in a river of blood running over the floor of the cave and gravely wounded. As the story would have it he cuts of the Div's head and mounts it on his helmet; manuscript illuminations across several centuries depict this gruesome accessory as a standard part of Rostam's gear.
