During the Shadow War, there was a series of battles between the Shadowling Empire and the Dissidents forces at Lake Alto. During one of the battles, a shadowling commander, General Darkeye, was wounded and defeated by Dissidents leader Cerzak. To deter a counter-attack, the Spriggats forces filled that part of the lake with mines. The Hero was tasked with piloting a Psy Boat through the minefield to rescue Darkeye. When the Hero arrived on the large island that Darkeye retreated to, he was forced to fight and defeat Cerzak.
