He finds a Human about to kill a tiger Keidran trespassing in human territory for the bounty offered on Keidran by the Templar Order. Trace jumps in to to defend the female Keidran. The human recognizes Trace as the Grand Templar and leaves the Keidran in Trace's hands. As the human walks away, he transforms into a being resembling a woman, wearing a mask. It is revealed that the mysterious figure took Trace's memories away. Trace is confused about the Keidran, due to being warned that the creature is vicious and dangerous, but seeing firsthand that the creature was not aggressive. Trace decides to leave it alone, since it did not seem to be intelligent, and continue searching out a city and his identity. The Keidran, surprised that Trace was friendly towards her, pounces on him and decides to follow him.
