The genie then completely destroyed the village, leaving everything in complete ruins. During the Genie's attack one of the town's windmills was about to fall on Paige, Toan's best friend. Toan ran to saved her but got killed in the process.He was later revived by Simba,the Fairy King. Simba told him that the Dark Genie has destroyed Norune village but he had sealed the village and it's inhabitants in the Atla to protect them from the attack, but they were scattered inside the Divine Beast Cave. He gives Toan the Green Atlamillia and sets him off on his journey. Toan then visits the Mayor, who was the only other person who wasn't sealed in Atla. The Mayor gives Toan the key to the Cave to find Dran The Protector Of Norune Village since his lair is inside the cave & explains to him what's happened to the village, Toan then travels inside the cave battling monsters & collecting Altas along the way he meets Xiao and Seda. Xiao was a stray cat wondering around the cave while Seda wanted Toan's atlamillia for his know needed suddenly Seda becomes possessed and began to fight with Toan, after the two duel Seda gives Toan a potion to change Xiao into a Neko cat(Half-human half-cat)and decides that Toan is the rightful owner to the Atlamillia & leaves the cave.After rebuilding the town Toan fights Dran, who was under the Genie's spell. Toan wins and Dran gives him a map that lets him teleport to places marked on it. Toan then leaves to go to Matataki Village.
