Ruuji found himself surrounded by a group of wild Elephanders, only to be saved by the swift action of the Soul Tiger. It is revealed that Wild Zoids act on their own, without a pilot. They move to find Reggel from natural sources. The heard that had attacked Ruuji was a group that had lost their feeding ground to a recent landslide. When Kotona finds Ruuji, it is revealed that the man who saved him was Seijuurou, a person hailed as the greatest Zoid pilot in history. Ruuji pleads with Seijuurou to help him become a stronger pilot, but Seijuurou refused, liking Ruuji to his former pupil Jirou. Jirou was a pilot of a black liger zero, and was killed in a match against Seijuurou. Eventually, Seijuurou saves them, and decides to join their group agreeing to train Ruuji on their journey.
