The Lord and Master of Kashan Fortress (カシャーン城塞の主 Kashaan Jousai no Omo? ) is the the 10th episode of the Arslan Senki Anime series. This episode was adapted from chapters 21, 22 and 23 of Hiromu Arakawa's manga.
Arslan and his subjects seek refuge in the Kashan Fortress, governed by Lord Hodir, but it does not take long for the party to realize Hodir's true intentions for sheltering them.
Arslan and his party are pursued by Lusitanian cavalrymen until Parsians archer open fire, sent by Lord Hodir after they are requested assistance from Daryun. They travel to Kashan Fortress to meet with Hodir where Arslan notices the huge number of slaves.
At a party, Hodir explains why he didn't fight against the Lusitanian Army, and states that Arslan has come to give him a chance. Hodir ask Arslan what is his plan is, with Arslan telling him about his view on the slaves, notably those in Ecbatana. Hodir does not react, however he seemingly agitated by this. Later, Arslan is separated from the others as there is only one bed in his Chamber. He is visited by Lord Hodir, who laid out two conditions for him. The first was to marry his daughter and the second was to get him to reconsider the abolition of the slaves which would be against Parsian tradition. Arslan manages to join up with his party by using the balcony, where they decide to flee the castle, notably after they discovered a soporific potion.
Later, Hodir and a group of soldiers knock at Arslan's Chamber (Hodir notes that Arslan is wearing his armor) and tries to convince him to execute Daryun and Narsus, stating that Pars will be in a worse state with them at his side. Arslan refuses his offer and leave, revealing to the others, who deceived Hodir's plan, equipped themselves and were ready to leave the fortress. Hodir attempts to refrain them from leaving by making excuses, however this was a ruse to give the armed soldiers, who are to escort the group, the opportunity to kill Arslan but the two are are cut down by a wary Gieve and Falangies.
A battle ensues which stops when Daryun jumps in front of Hodir to tell him to prepare himself for his death, causing Hodir run towards Arslan with his sword out, only to be stabbed in the back by Daryun. His death leads to an end of the fighting. Arslan decides to go to free the slaves but is nearly killed by them when he announces Hodir was killed.
Later, outside the fortress, Narsus tells his story of a similar situation with slaves whom he freed returned to slavery.
