Using the Lift Psynergy, Isaac has the option to rescue Hsu from the boulder he is pinned under.

Hsu (ウルムチ Ulmuch) is a minor NPC appearing in Golden Sun. He is a resident of Xian and a friend and possible romantic interest of Feizhi. He studies martial arts under Hama at Lama Temple, but while passing through Alpine Crossing he has the misfortune of falling victim to Saturos' trap. Saturos' party triggers a landslide to block the crossing and prevent Isaac's party from following them, (presumably unintentionally) pinning Hsu under a boulder as he was passing by. Feizhi's power of foresight alerts her to his dilemma, and she seeks help first from her father (who rejects her foresight and refuses to help) and later from Master Hama. While Hama is willing to help and is even able to reach to Hsu using Reveal, she is ultimately unable to free him from the boulder. If Isaac comes to free Hsu using both Reveal and Lift, Feizhi will give Felix's party the Golden Ring during Golden Sun: The Lost Age (provided, of course, that the player has transferred data from Golden Sun to The Lost Age).

Trivia[edit]

  • It appears at first to be a mistranslation that in The Lost Age, in the scene in Champa where Feizhi searches for Isaac due to him having helped Hsu in the previous game, Feizhi refers to Hsu by his name in the Japanese version, "Ulmuch". However, arbitrary string-compression issues in the North American version of the game's coding prevent certain combinations and arrangements of letters and numbers, including the letter combination "Hsu", from being able to be physically programmed into the game cart's complete pool of displayable text. The translators were therefore forced to fall back to the Japanese name "Ulmuch" when they felt the need to refer to the previous game's Hsu by a name.
    • The name Ulmuch likely comes from the city of Urumqi, the capital of China's autonomous region of Xinjiang (Uyghur).
