Over there

its alright now, I will

not let them hurt you

do you understand?

Woman hand over the child

I cannot do that

She is under my protection now


That child is an abomination,

she bears the symbol of Uru

If we kill her now

we will save thousands of lives

now woman get out of the way

This is my territory

you are trespassing

who is that lunatic

I do not care whether

she is human or spirit

we will crush anything

that stands in the way

you dare to stand in the way of

the great warriors of Obudinike

I believe you are mentally deranged

And because of that I will forgive you

now woman get out of the way

You are trespassing

What are you waiting for, she is just

a woman, kill them kill them all

What are you waiting for, kill them all

That was not necessary

I had the situation under control.

The child is safe and that

is most important thing

can you make them forget

everything that happened today

that will not be necessary


They are warriors

I do not understand

well, in order to retain their dignity, they

will go home and report the mission accomplished

Oh, I see

You cannot go home

what? Do you know what it is?

It is the mark of Uru

what is Uru?

She was a very very bad

sorceress who died long ago

Your people believe you are Uru

Am I Uru?

No, you are not Uru

but, how did this...

when you are old enough to understand

I will explain everything

but I want to see my mother

Do not cry

you are in good hands now

we will take you to place where

they will never bother you again

do you understand


do not be afraid, we will

not let anyone hurt you

Hurry up lets get out of here

Blood spill is forbidden

in sacred mountains

but the black panthers

they kill for food it is natural

are we going to just stand here

and let them tear us apart

no we will not do that

what do we do now, they are

getting ready to attack

Run for your life


Don't you think that was a little harsh

it's high time she faced real danger

you really think she can

out run the panthers

have you all gone cray

she outran the panthers


did you hear what I just said

Don't you have anything to say to me

Like apology for living me at

the mercy of the black panthers

The important thing is they

didn't have you for lunch

your speed is incredible, however

Speed alone will be insufficient when you

encounter a fast and bigger opponent

I am going to cut down that tree

I want you to catch it when it falls


Have you lost your mind?

What happen to your legs

you don't know how to run

do you have a death wish

I don't get it


What exactly do you want me to do

catch the tree or run away when it falls

catching a falling tree is the most

important part of your training


But you don't have to do it if you cant

you almost got me there

I think you are getting

the wrong impression

you really have to catch a falling tree

do enjoy confusing me?

You do not have to catch a falling tree now

but you have to catch falling trees later

are you still confused?

Confused? I am terrified.

Would you mind explaining why I have to

catch falling trees heavier than elephant

what sort of ridiculous

your existence depends on it

why me

common you will get used to it

Hmm smells good

what are you cooking

Idikaiko soup with pounded yam

how long do I have to wait

I am so hungry I could eat a cow

its ready, go spread the mat

I will join you shortly


Who is going to eat all that?

I thought you wanted to eat a cow

What is the problem

you once said I had no link with Uru
