The bearded man underwent a complete change of heart how did this come about
A bearded man wanted the death of a king, but the king, not knowing this, saved his life and bandaged his wounds. When the bearded man realized that the one whom he considered an enemy had saved him, he repented and promised to serve the king all his life. In response, the king rewarded him. This case was one of the answers to questions the king asked the hermit. If the bearded man died, the king would never be able to reconcile with him.
