The main hero, Livonian knight Adolf von Wannevar is second son of his father, a landlord of Transpalen. Instead of inheriting father's manor and property he travels to the west and become a law student of the Charles University in Prague. He goes to the pilgrimage into the Council of Constance and become a witness of the condemning and burning of Jan Hus. He founds Hus's dissident fan-club and travels to Lübeck where he got lawyer's job in the Hanseatic merchant association, also marries with 14-year Lübeck girl. In his later years, Adolf serves the university of Paris as a law scholar. "Beast on the Landing" depicts the medieval possibility to move in the spaces between different cultures.
