She soon starts passing out in pain for no apparent reason and even ends up finding herself away from her homeland for the first time. Upon return, she comes face to face with the next suzerain, in other words, the leader of those living in her homeland. She's caught right in the middle of the clashing of these two men, and the two peoples they come from. On top of it all, someone or something is killing her beloved forest. Will she be able to save it while keeping everyone else from killing each other?
