In Broken Throne, Maven's chapter takes place in Whitefire Palace before his death. He is in a dungeon which was given to him by Cal, which is actually a luxurious suit. This chapter explains why Cal was not that emotional about Maven's death when compared to Mare. This is because, in the dungeon Maven conforms that he could not be salvaged and there was only his mother's creation left in him. This gave Cal the conformation that he needed to stop searching for a way to cure Maven and accept him, and his fate. But in the end of the chapter, Maven shows a sign that there is some of him left inside of him, after Cal left the room. This chapter explains why Cal was less emotional, and gives a closure to the brother's relationship.
