Although the Genbu Warriors first thought they could only be affected if physically near Teg himself, it turns out that they can be affected if anywhere near the valley. This makes it a very dangerous place to be, and both the Rowun family and the Kutou army have been trying to use this to their advantage. Soruen was taken there as bait to lure Rimudo into a heavily guarded cavern, and the attacks by the Kutou army have all been close enough to the Valley that the warriors have often found their attempts to fight back thwarted.
