Chapter 1: Ryu has a dream about a girl with wings singing a Beautiful but sad song before being attacked by a monster, causing him to wake up. He is later seen sparring in the village with his brother (Named Kai in the manga) with Ryu quickly getting the upper hand and defeating him, but acknowledging his brother's growth when Fei, a newcomer of the village appears being chased by monsters.
Ryu orders Kai to take Fei somewhere safe while he deals with the monsters, due to Kai only having a wooden sword at the time. He is later assisted by Gilliam, Amelia, Jubei, and Kai. Once the monsters are defeated he notices a bag with Dazzle Grass and ask Fei if it is hers which she confirms. Overhearing, Gilliam harshly chastises Fei who didn't know that kind of herb attracts the monsters in the vicinity. Despite, knowing the attack was due to the grass, Ryu was unable to shake the feeling he got from his dream. However, before he can think more upon it he is hit by something Amelia threw at Gilliam and sees the two argue which he notes is a common sight.
