The hero arrives in Porth Llaffan after visiting Alltrades Abbey. The villagers are enthralled by a young girl named Jona Jones, who has the ability to call Lleviathan to receive fish from the ocean. The villagers, including Mayor Bryce, are exploiting her to get fish and no longer do any fishing on their own. Jona tells the hero she wishes to meet, but is then summoned by the mayor. Jona tells the mayor she no longer wants to get fish for the villagers. The mayor gets angry, telling Jona she must keep doing it.

The next day Jona is missing and the villagers are searching for her. Bryson, the mayor's young son, tells the hero that he saw his father taking Jona to Cuddiedig Cliff. The hero must fight his/her way through the Tywll Cave to reach the cliff. There, Lleviathan arrives swallows Jona in order to protect her from the angry mayor. The hero then battles against Lleviathan.

After being defeated, Lleviathan spits out Jona and reveals itself to be her father Dylan who was lost at sea. He was thrown out a the boat during a storm and found a fygg floating in the water. He clung to the fygg and was transformed into Lleviathan. He asks Jona to go with him, but she refuses. Bryson steps forward and offers to take care of Jona once he gets older. Lleviathan then gives the fygg to the hero and returns to the ocean.

Life goes back to normal at the village. Ships begin traveling again, allowing the hero to reach Slurry Quay.
