When rumbling began to originate from the Idol of the village, Reena was sent to calm it down, but did not return. Melfice is sent to investigate, with Ryudo unknowingly trailing behind. He discovers her posessed by the Horns of Valmar and kills her, only to be posessed himself.
Ryudo witnesses this event, and stays beside Reena's impaled body weeping.
Ryudo is greatly affected by Reena's fate. He loses trust in others, and becomes the cynical, pessimistic person first seen in the beginning of the game. He also comes to believe Melfice killed Reena just to obtain Valmar's power.
