When Dhaos flees to the present, Trinicus, the descendant of Edward D. Morrison who dealt the final blow to Dhaos in the past, stands by Miguel Albane and Maria Albane, as well as Meryl Adenade, in the Catacombs. Using two pendants, he seals Dhaos in a coffin and gives the pendants to the Meryl and the Albanes to protect. Unforunately, years later, he is unable to prevent Mars Uldole from capturing Meryl and her daughter, Mint Adenade, or massacring the village of Toltus, where the Albanes and their son, Cress Albane, live. He only manages to reach Toltus in time to help Chester Burklight, the only other survivor of Toltus, bury the villagers. When he returns home, Mint is dragging an unconscious Cress to his house.
