Cyan, Sabin, and Shadow pass through the forest after fleeing from the Imperial Camp. They come across a train platform for the Phantom Train and board to inspect it when it pulls out of the station. After defeating the train, it stops at the southern edge of the forest and lets them off while picking up the spirits of those killed at Doma Castle, including Cyan's wife and son, Elayne and Owain.
