After the start of the Grave Eclipse, Ryu Kou, Hou Ju, and Hou Zan manage to escape on a Sanan ship. During the ensuing storm, the ship crashes near a small outpost, though Ryu Kou, Hou Ju, and Hou Zan survive. The three take refuge in a small room in the house. Monsters empowered by the Grave Eclipse attack, but Hou Zan is able to fend them off with his martial arts skills. However, he only wounds one, and is fatally injured.
Later on, Matthew and his group track the three Sanans down by following the signal from an Echo Gem in Hou Ju's possession, which reacts to an identical gem taken by Matthew from Tonfon. They initially find the sunken ship, but discover that the ship's crew has died. After exploring the nearby house, the Adepts find Ryu Kou and Hou Ju hovering over a dying Hou Zan. After recounting the group's adventures, Hou Zan dies from his injuries, and is buried just outside the house, with Hou Ju's Echo Gem serving as a grave marker. After obtaining the Umbra Map needed for their quest, Matthew's party escorts Ryu Kou and Hou Ju back to Tonfon.
