|Not Part of Riordanverse|
Austin is a member of the Horangi Clan.
When Riley Oh and Emmett Harrison wonder into the Horangi territory to look for the last fallen star, the two are quickly taken prisoner as he, Sora Kwon, and a boy their age named Taeyo interrogate them. After he summons stars from his jacket and threatens to hurt Emmett, Riley reveals their quest to save her sister by finding the last fallen star and reveals that she is a Horangi. Everyone is startled by the revelation and they release the two, Emmett runs away as Riley goes with the Horangi. He leaves to attend to business.
As the campus is attacked by a Inmyeonjo, a bird woman who hates mirrors, Riley, Emmett, and Taeyo return with Riley saying she wants to initiate. He and Taeyo take her to get the chip implanted in her wrist and tell her how they control their dominant elements before heading out to help. They find the bird woman caged by the lake and he pushes Riley forward when it is her turn to tame her and cheers when the girl succeeds. When the Ohs and Okja arrive, he, Sora, Taeyo, and Riley go with them to a shed to talk. After the Horangi and the Ohs shout accusations at one another, Riley accuses Okja of a cover up. When she reveals that Bongjoon Pyo, the current Samjogo elder, might be behind the Horangi's excommunication due to his recent erratic behavior, the group forms an uneasy alliance and heads to Los Angeles.
They arrive at Mr. Pyo's place of work and, after Taeyo hacks into his calendar to make an appointment for his relatives, they walk right in. They find him in a meeting and, when he sees them, runs as they give chase. They corner him in his car as he, Sora, and Taeyo subdue him. Riley asks why he framed the Horangi. Mr.Pyo tells them Sookhee Harrison was behind everything, before he comes to the realization that she was possessed by the Cave Bear Goddess as part of a plan for her and her sisters to destroy the artifacts, which are actually pieces of the dark moon and dark sun, to erase their sin so that they can enter the Mortalrealm and do what they please with humanity. After realizing the Cave Bear Goddess can possess members of the Gom, Riley asks if they can sever the clan's ties to her. Although hesitant at first, Okja reveals a spell exists and the ohs agree to it. Just then Areum arrives and says the Dokkaebi know where the artifact is. As they question where to even find a dokkaebi, Mr. Pyo says one lives in the forty-fourth room on the forty-forth floor of the temple. They leave the elder behind and, after stopping at the Tokki elder's house for a sleeping potion, they reach the temple and argue over who is going to make a deal with the dokkaebi. When they reach the room, the decide on the Ohs going in.
He and the others enter the room and, as Riley had their memories of her erased to find the last fallen star, they do not recognize her and are surprised that she knows about their plan to sever the Gom from the Cave Bear Goddess, with Austin being extremely cautious around her. After she returns Emmett's ring and takes out Taeyo's compass, she believes it is the last fallen star and they head to the Gi Sanctuary. The Cave Bear Goddess arrives and asks Riley for the star. She then requests Hattie and the goddess obliges. He watches as Hattie starts to spasm before speaking in the voice of Sookhee Harrison. After she explains to her son what she did and how she regained her sense of self, she turns into a jaguar and goes to the afterlife. Riley berates the goddess for not returning Hattie, the goddess responds that, as she and the other goddesses are the daughters of Mago Halmi, all others are beneath them. Okra then starts the spell to sever the goddess from a Gom, binding the two with thread. Riley goes to cut off threads, but fails to do so as she realizes to late that the compass is not the star. As the Cave Bear Goddess berates Riley, for betraying her, Riley says she is powerless in the Mortalrealm without a host. Just then the goddess tries to possess Okja. He and the others try and fail to stop the goddess. He and the others struggle to restrain the goddess even with the arrival of Noah Noh, David Kim, Cosette Chung, and Jennie Byun. He and the others are shocked when Riley announces that she is the last fallen star and watch as she destroys the statue of the patron goddess of the Gom Clan, expelling her from Okja and the mortalrealm.
As things calm down, he shows Jennie how his biochip works how his biochip works. Unknown to everyone, Riley is given a wish by the Haetae to undo anything from her past and she decides to resurrect Hattie. He does so and, after a delay, Hattie is resurrected. They all cheer and promise to find a way to restore their memories of Riley as they fill Hattie in.
