Disappointed upon learning that the Katarg region where she was born is not inhabitated by the Fanalis anymore, Morgiana is about to be attacked by slave traders when Alibaba's brothers, Abhmad and Sabhmad appear to intervene. As they take Morgiana to see a leader of the local Toran village, Sabhmad reveals that after being removed from power in Balbadd, Sinbad recruited them to work as archeologists and investigate the elusive Toran culture, which is far older than all others existant. After learning that the Fanalis have resettled by the other side of a gigantic canyon known as "The Great Rift", Morgiana decides to cross it in order to finally reunite with her people, despite being warned that no one ever returned. After reaching the bottom of the rift, Morgiana comes across a house and is recieved by the Magi Yunan, who reaffirms that once she reaches the other side, she could not return even with his powers. Meanwhile at Magnostadt, Kouha is informed that his father, the Kou Emperor has passed away, and is forced to return home, but not before leaving a warning that should Magnostadt not surrender, they will be invaded by Kou and having a brief meeting with Aladdin. Back at the Kou Empire, Hakuei reunites with her brother Hakuryuu, but she seems displeased with him for some reason, when their brother and the governor general Kouen Ren appears before them.
