  • Having listened to Emperor Varis's maniacal plans, Lyse is ready to go to war.
  • The hour of battle has arrived at last. Together with a contingent of Doman soldiers, you and Alisaie make for the Ghimlyt Dark, and the front lines of battle.
※The Ghimlyt Dark can be accessed via the Duty Finder.
  • Chaos erupts from all sides as you wage your way through the Ghimlyt Dark. Though the imperials send wave after wave of soldiers against you and your allies, their forces are still found wanting. They eventually concede defeat and begin a hasty retreat.
  • After reconvening with Lord Hien, Yugiri, and Alisaie, you make ready to give chase when your minds are assailed once again by a mysterious voice. When the pain subsides, you find Alisaie lifeless on the ground.
  • Thanks to your efforts, the Garlean forces have retreated, offering the Alliance a brief reprieve. While discussing the present state of the battle against Garlemald, Yugiri returns from the infirmary with distressing news─the chirurgeons can find no cause for Alisaie's affliction. With five of the Scions now fallen, Raubahn suspects you may be shaken, and exhausted besides. With no further signs of Garlean movement, he bids you rest for the interim.
  • You return to the Rising Stones and speak with Hoary Boulder, who is dismayed to hear that Alisaie too has succumbed to the deathless sleep that has taken hold of the others. Though Krile and the other remaining Scions have yet to find a remedy, he believes all hope is not yet lost. For now, however, all you can do is wait.

Greetings, sir. I have instructions to escort you to Alliance Headquarters─assuming you are ready, of course?
Accompany the Resistance fighter to Alliance Headquarters?

My duties as field commander demand I remain here at my post, but I have no doubt the front lines are in capable hands.

So the Garleans have been routed, have they? Well done.


Though this exchange was no more than a test of our strength, like as not. They won't be taking any chances now that the Emperor has joined the fray. They'll want to take their time─whittle down our defenses...


Still, with your help, and that of our Eastern allies, we've passed the first test. Our line is unbroken.


As for Alisaie...well, she's in good hands over at the infirmary.
My lord─the chirurgeons have completed their examination of Mistress Alisaie, and it is as we feared. She is locked in a slumber without any outward cause.
Just like the others. Damn it all...

Aye...the Garleans picked a fine time to come knocking.


Five Scions incapacitated... And with the enemy on our doorstep, I cannot spare the men to assist in the search for a cure. The best I can do is see to it that Alisaie is escorted safely back to the Rising Stones.
Yugiri and I would return to our encampment. The main contingent of our forces from the Far East is under sail, and all must be made ready for their arrival.

I'll not keep you, then.


Judging by the Garleans' recent movements, or lack thereof, they won't be launching another offensive in the immediate future.


You should return to the Rising Stones. Given the plight of your fellow Scions, I can understand if you feel on edge, but you'll be no good to anyone without rest.

Alisaie is being cared for at the infirmary. Would that there were more we could do for her...
Ah, Forename. Welcome home. Word has it you and Mistress Alisaie gave the Garleans quite a thrashing. Speaking of whom, where is Mistress Alisaie? I was certain she would have returned by now.

By the Twelve, not her too...


Ocher and I will ready the infirmary for her arrival.


We will also need to send a message to Tataru posthaste. <sigh> Would that I had something other than grim tidings to share with her...


And with you too, for that matter. It grieves me to report that the Archons' condition remains unchanged.


As we speak, Coultenet, Krile, and Master Matoya continue to explore every possible avenue. Alas, their efforts have yet to bear fruit.


But all is not lost. You are still hale and whole, after all. Though I suspect you must be tired from your journey. You should rest, my friend. Leave the worrying to us, for the time being, at least.

Go on, now─rest. You've more than earned it. We'll contact you the moment the Garleans show any sign of stirring.
