When Cress Albane and his companions rescued Suzu from blackmailed ninjas in Volt's Cave, Suzu quickly ran away from sight. However, they eventually found her in Treantwood, guarding the secret entrance to the Ninja Village. She then led them to Ranzo's house, where she also lived. After a series of booby traps set against any intruder, including Cress falling out of the house and into the pond outside, unintentionally towards the unwary guests, Ranzo apologized for the mischief, scolding Suzu in the process. After the guests have finished relaxing at the hot springs inside the house, Ranzo asked them a favor. This favor was actually to find Suzu's parents, who had gone missing for some time, and told them that the couple were last seen in Euclid.
