 Oroonoko has been promoted to the position and has just come to his grandfather's court. Here for the first time he sees his mentor's daughter, the beautiful and modest young imoinda: "a beauty, that to describe her truly she was female to the noble male, the beautiful black Venus to our young Mars, as charming in her person as he, and of delicate virtues" (9). They fall instantly in love. Oroonoko asks Imoinda to marry him, and she quickly agrees.
