Taking place during the late Dunan Unification War, the New State Army buoyed from its victory at the Battle of Rockaxe, planned to march on the Highland capital of L'Renouille before the Highland Army could regain its composure. The Highland strategist Leon Silverberg anticipated this move and engaged the New State Army outside of Muse City.
During the battle, Shu and Viktor disengaged from the New State Army and engaged Leon Silverberg directly. Leading the forces of Leon into a forest, Shu unleashed an unprecedented fire attack, wiping out a great amount of Leon's troops. Although Leon himself survived the battle, the fire strategy allowed the New State Army to win and open the route to Highland.
