Following the Morgal Revolution, many Sanan colonists were forced to flee to the small village of Te Rya. When Hou Ju was captured by Morgal forces, she apparently lost the bag, which contained several of her belongings. Several Sanans began a search for the bag, but it never turned up. Eventually, the bag ended up in the hands of the beastman Sveta. Her unique mind-reading powers helped her realize that the bag's owner was saddened at its loss. She would later enlist Matthew's party in returning it to the Sanans, as the Sanans would most likely attack her on sight. Returning the bag to the Sanans causes Ryu Kou, Hou Ju's brother, to trust the Adepts enough to inform them of Hou Ju's circumstances, while some other Sanans examined the bag's contents. One of the Sanans notice a piece of paper in Hou Ju's bag, after which the Sanans leave and prepare to cross into Morgal themselves.
Although the exact contents of the bag are never revealed, it is likely that the paper discovered is a message from Sveta. Later in the game, Sveta tells Matthew's party that she felt she had to help Hou Ju and did so by helping her brother, Ryu Kou. It's possible that, in the letter, Sveta offers her assistance to Ryu Kou and company. Also, later in the game, Ryu Kou gives Matthew's group the Slap Glove, which was given to him by Sveta. While it can't be said for certain, it's possible that the Slap Glove was also placed in the bag.
