Clementine appears in front of Nfirea and prepares to kidnap him. The Swords of Darkness attempt to buy time for Nfirea and Ninya to escape but Khajiit blocked their route of escape which leads to all the members being killed. After registering Hamsuke at the Adventurer's Guild, Momon's group meet Lizzie and she guides them to her house. However, there they found the Swords of Darkness, who had turned into zombies. After killing them off, Momon investigates their objective Nfirea. Momon tells Lizzie to hire him and rescue his grandson to which she agrees. Momon orders Nabe to use the locator scroll to track where Nfirea is held. Momon discovers an undead army at the cemetery and tells Lizzie to warn the people and the Guild of the threat.

At the E-Rantel Cemetery, the undead army assaulted the gate of the city. The guards try to defend it but are overwhelmed by their sheer numbers. Momon's group arrive and breakthrough the undead. Momon's group meets the members of Zurrernorn, who are in progress on using the Death Spiral at the city. Momon then leaves Nabe to deal with Khajiit while he and Clementine leave to take their battle elsewhere. Momon tells Clementine that he doesn't need to fight her seriously and their duel begins.
