You met the greatest shaman of this world, Akule, in Courcle. Akule crafted a Relic for you with Millia's help, insisting that it would protect you from demons. However, a huge black dragon appeared right at the climax of the ritual...


Iria: Episode 2 - Hero's Return: The Trap is the second episode of The Saga: Iria. Millia and the Milletian, refusing to believe that Akule is dead, try to locate him within the Mysterious Karu Forest Ruins only to find that it is all a trap laid out by the Black Dragon. Meanwhile, Shamala is interrogated by a familiar yet aged man in the same area.
