He decides he wants to journey to the World Beneath in order to see the artifacts and technology there. He goes on his journey with Oriana Nascava and Lee Crabb. They find amazing things, including dinosaur-shaped robots. Unfortunately, Lee Crabb's greed leads him to steal a treasure guarded by the carnivorous dinosaurs, and they try to stop him.
