The Mask talks with Matoya who came to visit to Gardenia. The Warriors of Darkness travel to Gardenia, where they find The Mask at a local pub, but none of them actually know him. They ask the bar Owner about the Desert Moon, who tells them not to talk about it. Meanwhile, Matoya's show begins. A local guy here tells the team that this is the fourth person to take Matoya name. After the show end, the Warriors ask Matoya about Desert Moon. She tells them "the sun set in the west, while the moon dot rise in its wake" and that they will have to find the moon themselves. Graham thinks it's a code and tells the team to head west, to Gardenia Slums. After talking to Azhar, the warriors come back and tell the owner password, which is Desert Rose. Then Matoya walks out of her room, says that the warriors are making noise and she couldn't sleep. Alba realizes that Matoya is Desert Moon's leader. Then she invites them to her room. The Warriors tell her the password. She compliments them in gaining people trust and reveals that her age is 118 now. The Warriors then ask for aid from the Desert Moon. Matoya, who hasn't trust them yet, tells them to go to the imperial camp and assault it. After receiving a warning from an injured members of the Desert Moon in Forest Hut, the warriors go to Matoya's room in the pub and access a secret passage to Beneath Gardenia.
