In an attempt to awaken and control Moltenus, Tura-Kepek and Eithne kidnapped the five guardians of Mystery Island; thereby weakening the seal that confined Moltenus within Techo Mountain. With the seal weakened, Eithne tried to awaken Moltenus with an incantation; however, users were able to finish the incantation before her, causing Moltneus to attack Eithne. After attacking Eithne, Moltenus turned and attacked the user. The user then had to recite another incantation to get rid Tura-Kepek and return Moltenus to his slumber.
