Twelve years later, as there was news of the Thaumaturg army invading the Himatan, Hanu appeared once again in front of Saeng and the two escaped from their village to find the Temple of Light, of which Saeng was a priestess.
Saeng and Hanu crossed into Himatan, which was Ardata's territory, via the Gangrek Mountains. Hanu fell into a crevice, and down to an underground river. When Saeng followed, they went over a waterfall, Saeng trying to keep hem both alive with her magery. Hanu was severely injured and became comatose. When Saeng woke up, she met Old Man Moon, who healed Hanu.
