Despite their immense power and skill the Tempest Ninjas are unable to stave off the Rahkshi. Though determined, each bout ended in defeat for the stealthy princesses.
A stormy day the Tempest Ninja Hinoarashi was wandering alone, already in danger from the downpour. She is ambushed by Lerahk, and at such a vulnerable state she is unable to defend herself, thus resulting in the Princess of Flames being smacked around by the green beast. Just as soon as Lerahk moves in for the kill, a mysterious warrior lands between them.
A fierce battle ensued. It ended with Lerahk limping on one leg, and, being the intelligent that it was the Rahkshi wisely retreated and left the protagonists to themselves.
"Wh... wh... who are you...?" Hinoarashi stammered.
Sent by the deity Hikage, the fourth Lonely Vision, the warrior is a male reincarnation of the Korishiya Toa Yaiba, one of the Toa's older and fiercer rivals. Clearly the Tempest Ninjas would need more help than what they're given... and Yaiba answered the prayer. Oddly enough Yaiba has long watched Hinoarashi from afar... and has become infatuated with her. Thus he jumps at every chance to keep her from harm's way... and this time, she noticed.
"What's a pretty little thing like you doing wandering around in the rain?" Yaiba grinned, holding his hand to the Princess of Flames.
