History[edit | edit source]
New Kirk City was attacked by Mothra while she was searching for her missing Shobijin, accidentally causing hurricane force winds with the flap of her wings. This caused much destruction to the streets and the surrounding shops as well as the rooftops. The Shobijin were being help captive by Clark Nelson, a greedy business man trying to use the fairies beautiful singing for profit. The Rolisican police were able to find Nelson and kill him. The humans then painted Mothra’s religious symbol on an airport runway to get her attention. Mothra soon came, and the humans returned the Shobijin to her. Mothra then immediately went to her home Infant Island to be with her people once again.
