I was translating a sentence from a lore book for Saint Seiya. It's describing the parts of the Underworld and I guess the main story beat that occurs there. It definitely uses certain pieces of grammar I know to be "old sounding," poetic language, such as using the masu-stem of a verb as the connecting form where modern language would expect the te form.
That said, I can't for the life of me figure out why this sentence ends in ことに. Any insight?
I roughly translate this as:
The Sixth Prison is comprised of three separate parts: The First Valley (The Pond of Blood), The Second Valley (The Woods), and The Third Valley (The Fiery Desert). After receiving Lune's judgment in The Second Prison, Seiya, who had been doing nothing but battle, was condemned to the Sixth Prison First Valley's Pond of Blood.
For this translation, I basically have paid no the ことに at the end no mind. Is there any nuance it's adding that I'm missing? Is it maybe something like "ended up?"
