TNikwa is filled with prehistoric beasts and brutal tribes. They befriend Buji, a Slyvan youth, who reveals Antoine is Twann in an old prophecy. A spiritual tribe, the Mishoni, adopt them. Oldeemus, the chieftain, leads an expedition, which separates Antoine for a prolonged period from Skylar, who is expecting his child. Rikker is obsessed with her and conspires to kill Antoine and usurp Oldeemuss position. Rikker belittled Elvin, his minion, until he takes revenge and causes irreparable damage to Rikker, Antoine, and Skylar. Upon his return, Antoine takes Skylar to a cave where she delivers a child foretold in prophecy. Rikker loses his life when he makes a soul-searching decision to sacrifice himself for Skylar. Antoine returns to earth with his baby as prophesied and finally has his destiny delivered.
