After their failure of stopping Sir Leopold at Marta' Cottage, Marta's son Marek suggests that if The Party is to stop the monster, they'll need to be able to take to fly.

With the Ultimate Key in possession and info about a map from Savella Cathedral, The Hero and Party find their way to Pirate's Cove only to find that Red seeks to obtain the treasure as well.

Upon finding their way to the chest, Red attempts to first get the treasure only to be defeated by Captain Crow, though the party fairs better in getting the treasure. Red looses interest in it anyway as it was only a map and takes leave.
