The Sacred Beasts of Moonwater Plains are powerful creatures that once helped the Four Guardians drive back the demonic forces that invaded Highland Central. They contain powerful Life Forces that are capable of overcoming the Mark of the Black Rose.
The Sacred Beasts include:
- Lycan the Mighty, the Wolf God (in stasis)
- Laofu, the Hoglin Sacred Beast (deceased)
- King Feichi, the Koki King
- Redjaw and Ashjaw, the Snapjaw Sages
- Ape King Ogong, the Simyu God
Iksanun tasks the hero with collecting the Life Forces of all the Sacred Beasts in order to overcome the Mark of the Black Rose. In the process, the hero also assists the Skyhaven Resistance with allying all the Moonwater Plains tribes against the invading Talus Dominion forces. Despite some rough beginnings in creating the alliance, all the available Sacred Beasts are present during the battle to reclaim the Skygate and the final battle in Zaiwei.
