After moving out of the Alpha District Orphanage and into the [[Guardian Home]], Sem struggled to find courage in his training, while his friend Aria excelled in all aspects. After failing one of Erlands most intense trails, Sem abandoned his training and ran away to the Parish District, where he stayed at the travelers hotel by himself. Aria quickly abandoned her own training in order to go look for him, unable to continue on without Sem there at her side.
Unable to convince Sem to return, Aria returned to her training and was given the task of finding her first ever lost traveler on her own. But disaster soon struck within the first hour of her task as Sem heard her distress call on his own communicator. Feeling he had abandoned Aria and with the discovery of how desperately she needed him there, Sem quickly found his courage and motivation. Upon rescuing Aria and returning with their lost traveler, Sem was congratulated by Erland for his bravery and new found understanding of keeping his focus not on saving an entire world in danger, but rather on the thought of rescuing a single life in danger. And thus, the two young Guardians began their official life with their newly awarded title as Guardians, working alongside Erland as their newly adopted father and mentor.<ref name=":0" />
