After Nina and Cray's sandflier is damaged by a dragon in the desert, Nina heads to Sarai in an attempt to find parts to fix the sandflier. On her way there, she teams up with Ryu, whom she thinks of got lost. They eventually find out, how to get the needed parts and leave towards Sandflier Valley. Upon their return to the bar, where they were supposed to get further help, Nina is discovered by an imperial soldier, who correctly identifies her as a princess of Wyndia. He then tries to capture her too, but fails after she fights him off. Ryu then hits him with the Kings Sword, breaking it in the process. They both then escape, with some imperial troops on their trail.
