Another major conflict occurs when the Aleutes descend on her island. She is naturally afraid of them, especially when they return the second time, because they betrayed their agreement with her father and killed him during a trade transaction. As a result, she sees them as monstrous. When they return to her island, she is forced to hide to survive.
