  • Rammbroes is frustrated over NOAH's lack of progress on the Crystal Tower.
  • Rammbroes informs you that the investigation of the Crystal Tower is being hindered by the most mundane of security measures: a gate that refuses to open. Even as Cid and G'raha Tia rack their brains to find a solution, two peculiar individuals arrive and offer their aid. They introduce themselves as Doga and Unei, scholars of ancient Allag sent by the Students of Baldesion. Though Rammbroes is at first suspicious of their origin, he relents at G'raha Tia's behest, and allows them to join NOAH in an advisory capacity. Without further ado, Doga and Unei are asked to examine the sealed gate which leads into Syrcus Tower. Accompany the two scholars to the Eight Sentinels, and there speak with Biggs to be shown to the gate.
  • Much to the surprise of all present, Doga and Unei open the gate as if they were born to do it. Speak with Doga to learn how this feat was possible.
  • Doga and Unei reveal that they are “clones”─copies of two individuals who claim direct descent from Emperor Xande, the founding father of the Allagan Empire. In his desire to bring the world under his rule, Xande consorted with forbidden powers. Fearful of what might befall the world, the original Doga and Unei attempted to thwart their emperor's scheme. They imbued their clones with their will, that their work might continue in the event of their deaths. After millennia in slumber, the two clones now seek to finish what their namesakes had begun, but they require your help to succeed. The members of NOAH unanimously agree to join their cause, and Rammbroes tasks you with eliminating all hostile elements within Syrcus Tower and finally defeating Emperor Xande. See to your preparations, then speak with G'raha Tia.
  • You have declared your readiness to enter Syrcus Tower to G'raha Tia. Fight your way to the top of the structure, and strike down Emperor Xande.
※Syrcus Tower can be accessed via the Duty Finder.
  • You have defeated Xande, but your victory proves short-lived. Even as Doga and Unei attempt to annul the emperor's dark covenant, an entity calling itself the Cloud of Darkness pulls them into the rift that had manifested before the throne. Nero attempts to save them for his own reasons, only to end up sharing their fate.
  • With the rift having vanished, you are powerless to help your friends. For now, return to Saint Coinach's Find, and consult Rammbroes as to a way to bring them back.
  • Rammbroes believes that Doga, Unei, and Nero were drawn through a voidgate, and into the dark realm beyond. Though they do not yet know how, the members of NOAH are determined to save their comrades and eliminate the threat posed by the Cloud of Darkness. Rammbroes pledges to search for the answer, and bids you rest up in preparation for the instrumental role you will doubtless play in the impending rescue mission.

Ah, 'tis you, my friend. You are doubtless eager to hear of our progress on the Crystal Tower.


Excellent, I'd be disappointed to hear otherwise. Of course, “disappointed” is the word of the day, I fear. I'm ashamed to say that there is nothing worthwhile to report.


The Sons continue to probe the Labyrinth of the Ancients, and every day brings new discoveries. Alas, the same cannot be said of the Crystal Tower proper. We've not been able to set so much as a single foot inside it.

You will recall how the Eight Sentinels stood between us and the labyrinth initially.


In like manner, the entryway into the principal spire─Syrcus Tower, the Allagans called it─is also protected by technology far more advanced than our own.


Cid and I have tried every trick we know, but without success. Frankly speaking, we are at a loss.

It is discouraging, but we cannot give up. There must be a way in.


...And so the situation stands, my friend. Until we gain entry into the tower, I fear your talents shan't avail us. It will require time that I am loath to waste, but I have a mind to set my people to scouring such ancient texts as we have on hand.
(- Doga -)
Perhaps we can be of assistance.
And you are?
(- Unei -)

Be at ease, friends, for we share the selfsame goal.


I am Unei, and my companion is called Doga. We are scholars of the Allagan civilization, sent by the Students of Baldesion to assist in your endeavor.
Unei and Doga? Rather unusual names for this day and age, if I might be forgiven for observing. But I digress.
Quest Completed

You claim to be here at the Students' behest, but we have received nary a word of your coming. Moreover, in light of the recent incident at the Isle of Val, I should think that they have rather more pressing concerns.


You claim to be here at the Students' behest, but we have received nary a word of your coming. I am sure you'll not take it amiss if we seem somewhat doubtful.
We can only assume that the message failed to reach you due to some mishap. I assure you that we are here to help.
What is it, G'raha?
Ungh... 'Tis nothing. There was...a pain, but it has subsided.
Well, well, this is rather unexpected. Your right eye is the same as ours.

The same? You...you have the Allagan Eye as well?


This sanguine hue is said to be a trait unique to the Allagans! Yet I inherited it from my father, as he did from his.


Only one child in a single generation is born with the eye. All my life, I have sought to learn the truth of its manifestation. If there is aught you know, I implore you to tell me!

My deepest apologies, but we have no answers for you. Only one thing is certain: those who possess the trait are bound by fate to Allag.


As your eye has placed you upon the path you walk, so too have we come here to fulfill our destiny. Absurd though it may sound, it is the truth.
It seems to me we have naught to lose by accepting their aid. What say you?

If that is your wish, then so be it.


Yet know that I still mean to verify your story with the Students of Baldesion when I am able. I trust there will be no objections.


Very well. As of this moment, I name Unei and Doga advisory members of NOAH. Without further ado, let us have them examine the Syrcus Tower entrance.
I promise you'll not have cause to regret your decision.

Forename, I should be much obliged if you were to accompany our new friends to the tower. Biggs and Wedge are presently surveying the Eight Sentinels; the two of them can show you the way.


Upon arrival, pray report to Master Garlond. He will brief you on the situation.
I shall join you, Forename. With Unei and Doga's knowledge, along with your uncanny knack for setting events in motion, I am hopeful that we will finally see progress.
Quest Accepted

Well, if it isn't Forename! Eager to enter Syrcus Tower and kill everything in sight, no doubt. As I'm sure you've already heard, though, the place is locked up tight as a clam.


...New friends from the Students, you say? Excellent! It's been slow going─or rather, no going─for the chief. He'll appreciate the help.


If you'll just follow me, I'll take you to him.

We're examining the rubble in the hopes that it'll yield a clue to entering Syrcus Tower.

...Can you tell we're getting desperate?

If you are ready to listen, we shall tell you all.


As it pertains closely to your investigation, your leader, Rammbroes, may wish to be present.

Player7 Icon.png Cutscene end.
You have every right to mistrust us, but I beg you to hear us out. Long have we waited for this opportunity to fulfill our life's purpose.
Let us hear what Unei and Doga have to say. It will not be too late to decide upon a course of action afterwards.
It goes without saying that Nero can't be trusted. We'd do well to keep an eye on him at all times.
We may not have gotten off to the best of starts, but the past is in the past. Yesterday's enemies can yet be today's friends. Do you not agree, Warrior of Light?

The chief and Nero go all the way back to the Magitek Academy. It's an exclusive school situated in the capital, reserved for the Empire's brightest elite.


I don't know the nitty-gritty details, but they didn't get along back then, and they don't get along now. Fate's a bastard for bringing them together again.
To think the Allagans could make copies of people... If this knowledge were to fall into the wrong hands, the world would become a terrible place. I shudder to imagine a dozen Biggs, shouting at me all day long... <gulp>

My apologies if I've given you cause to worry. I am quite well, I assure you. As you can appreciate, there has been much for me to think on.


But now is the time for action, not idle thoughts. Syrcus Tower awaits us!


Your task is to eliminate all hostile elements within the structure, Xande himself included. This will afford us the chance to seal off the facility. May the Crystal grant you strength!

Within Syrcus Tower, you will encounter clones who share our appearance.


Though they, too, were created in the image of Doga and Unei, they are but empty husks bereft of independent will. Their sole purpose is to eliminate intruders.


Striking down spitting images of Unei and myself may give you pause, but you must not let that stay your hand.

Though their names do not appear to have survived the passage of time, Doga and Unei were worthy individuals. They were not without faults, but they placed the welfare of the people above all else.


When Xande was resurrected, they supported his second ascension to the throne, in hopes that the empire would flourish once more under his leadership.


When it came to light that Xande was consorting with dark powers, they did all within their power to stop him. Among their many acts, they imbued us, two humble clones, with their will.
Technology made the Allagans great, but so too did it prove their downfall. And now the Garleans are treading in their very footsteps, the bloody fools. It's true what they say: history repeats itself.
...Nero? Wandered off on his own a moment ago. Only the gods know what that bastard's scheming. If it were up to me, I'd lock him up and throw the key into Silvertear Lake.
While you're off purging Syrcus Tower of nasties, Biggs and I will make a round of the Labyrinth─make certain that no funny business is going on inside.
The truth of my eye is ever on my mind, but right now every man of us has a job to do. Rest assured I shan't allow myself to be distracted.

All this happened within the tower? Gods preserve...


The rift that manifested before the throne was a voidgate, of this I am certain.


There exist myriad kinds of voidsent. The more powerful the being, the larger the gate must be for it to pass through.


'Twould seem that Xande sought to open a gate of unprecedented proportions─one that would allow this Cloud of Darkness entry into our world.


Fortunately for all mankind, he did not succeed. I shudder to imagine what this voidsent is capable of.
However dreadful it may be, we can't abandon our friends. Is there no way to save them?

I will not lie to you, Master Garlond. The situation is bleak.


Though voidsent can enter our world, instances of men entering the void have never been documented. It pains me to give voice to my fears, but we do not even know whether our friends still live.
Damn it... I feel so helpless...

No, I refuse to give up. We must save Doga and Unei.


We share the same eye, 'tis true, but that is not what motivates me.


Above all, I wish to help them to fulfill their mission─a mission whose burden they have borne for thousands of years. And besides...


We cannot leave matters as they are.


So long as Xande's dark covenant is binding, our world is in danger. 'Tis our duty to prevent the worst from coming to pass.
G'raha. Ever since meeting Unei and Doga, you have not quite been yourself. Tell me true: is all well with your eye?

I honestly cannot say. I know only that there is a memory that I must recall.


As a child, my father told me that the truth of our eye rests with Allag. The answer eludes me still...but one day I will find it.

I am with G'raha.


However slim the odds, we must try to save Unei and Doga. Aye, and that bastard Nero as well, if only to make certain that he won't make any more mischief.

You have the right of it. Though we have known them but briefly, Doga and Unei are our comrades. We cannot fail them.


I shall consult experts and literature both. I swear to leave no stone unturned.


Yet know that it may be a while before we are ready to act. I would ask that you all be patient. When dealing with the void, one cannot be cautious enough.


My thanks again for your assistance. Pray rest now while you can. For when the time comes to go after our friends, you must be at no less than full strength.
We'll save them yet, Forename! Mark my words!
Quest Completed
I feel as though that I'm forgetting something important, but for the life of me, I cannot remember what that something is...
Rammbroes may know a way to bring our friends back. Let's consult him without delay.
Hm? I appreciate the attention and all, but don't you have better things to do than chat with me?
Everyone's been in a dark mood since returning. I...I take it the mission didn't go well.
