The Warrior of Light seeks him out and he reveals to them that he is trying to mend the bonds of a supernatural beast resting in the city. As they take down the minions of the beast they restore the bonds but only temporary, and search for a better solution. Kyokuho decides to leave for Yanxia, the place of his great grandfather's training and discovers that they used the swallow's compass to train both body and mind. After setting off a few traps, Kyokuho finds a few scrolls that he's unable to read, and then travels back to Kugane so Master Murakumo can decipher them. He learns that the bonds required the blood of a sacrifice, and wants to look for another way not even considering it an option.
