One of the spirits of the universe has visited my people, the priests sent the miko offering friendship, but the great blue spirit sent out cascades of blue mist, sending them to sleep. Then the priest said that we should go to a sacred place, most went to the jinja, but I and Nobuko fled to an underwater cave. The evil daughter of Ryuiki must have taken all my kin, for the next day when we returned to our village we found no jinja, no trees, nothing was left. So we performed the chinkon and left. We called for the Kusanagi to avenge our relatives, but after two days the one known as the eagle found us. And so we came to the Stone Man.
