Yaen miraculously survived the encounter with Hargus, although not without his fair share of scars. During his recooperation period, a healer discovered the truth behind his crippled state. His legs had been improperly set after being broken as a child. After a horrible, literally bone breaking experience, his legs were set right, and he regained the ability to walk.
With the refound ability to walk, coupled with the character building experiences from his short time with Kenshin's group, the young Sacaen again set off on his aimless journey to improve his skills. The five years that have passed have served to strengthen his arm, boost his confidence, and fix his infamous stutter.
