With Owen, and later Amanda, they are ushered into the world of crime-fighting, forming the team "Supah Ninjas."

After finding her, they get captured. With the help of Amanda, they defeat The Rhymer and his gang (Lateef Crowder, Michelle Lee and Sam Looc) and escape. The next day, Amanda confronts them about knowing they are the "Supah Ninjas" and makes them let her join claiming that they couldn't have saved her without her.
