The ruins were ever targeted by thieves who hoped to obtain the mystic treasures beneath the dunes, and the Stigma's influence only amplified their greed. Yet their approach would be signaled by telltale sand clouds, affording Hector and Tamana ample time to stage an ambush. Though he had become a Stigmal, Hector's stone body allowed him to defend his daughter and the treasures with ease. Nevertheless, Tamana wished for nothing more than to discover the one responsible for the change and demand his restoration.
