  • The worried look on Lina Mewrilah's face suggests she bears grave tidings. Or not.
  • Alma is unwell, but as to what ails her, none can say. Lina suggests you continue your conversation on the Prima Vista.
  • Jenomis is near a decision on where to next take his expedition, or at least so Lina believes.
  • According to Jenomis's newest findings, the auracite are creations of an otherworldly being sealed beneath the Orbonne Monastery─an ancient sanctuary deep within the heart of a Dalmascan jungle. During the principal's speech, Cid appears to deliver Mikoto a device she requisitioned the chief engineer to build, then leaves without as much as a farewell.
  • The device conceived by Mikoto is, in fact, a means of protecting Alma from the aetherial influence of the Otius.
  • Former royal fusilier and sky pirate Bwagi invites you aboard his airship that he may take you to speak with a general for the resistance movement to which he and his companions now belong.
  • General Fran of the Dalmascan resistance group, Lente's Tears, promises her assistance in locating the Orbonne Monastery in return for financial and military aid from both the Eorzean and Doman alliances, and the East Aldenard Trading Company.
  • Montblanc appears both frightened and excited at the notion of aiding the Dalmascan resistance in their plight against the Garlean Empire; though, perhaps you should speak with Jenomis first before sharpening your blade.

Greetings and salutations, Forename! I suppose you are wondering whether or not the good Jenomis has finally determined where in the world our next adventure is to take us...

The good news is, he has. The bad news, however...

Now, while it is not in my nature to be sensationalist, sensationalism is in my job description, so please bear with me when I tell you not all is right aboard the airship Lexentale. Something about Alma has me deeply worried.

I would not trust this information in the hands of my publisher, let alone some sullen gate guard. Shall we continue our conversation on the Prima Vista away from inquisitive ears?
Quest Accepted
Shall I prepare the shuttle for you, my lord?
Board the Prima Vista?
Principal Jenomis claims to have learned much from his continued study of the Durai Papers. Still, he appears to be frustrated at a lack of information crucial to solving the mystery.

I sense that you are interested in the package Cid delivered. I have every intention to apprise you of its contents, but first I believe we should speak of Alma's condition.

Do you not find her illness all too timely? Jenomis and Ramza would like to believe that her bouts of vertigo are naught but a result of a mind fatigued, but the answer is clear: it is the auracite that plagues her.

Alma recently confided in me that she would hear her father speaking with the Otius, well before even his first foray into Rabanastre. However, I do not think this entirely true.

Which is not to imply that Alma is trying to deceive us. Rather, I think she saw something that led her to believe her father was conversing with the auracite. Moreover, I suspect it was the auracite itself that granted her this vision.

You recall my hypothesis on distinct-frequency NRR–type harmonic vibrations and their tendency to promote aetherial amplification? Or when I mentioned that despite being in the principal's possession for an extended period, the Otius exhibited none of the imprinting present in the Duma? No?

The Otius has never resonated with Jenomis; it has always been his wife's pendant and its auracite shard─the Virgo─that fueled his passion for Ivalice. No, the Otius is bound to Alma's deepest desires...whatever those may be.

The only reasons I can fathom that Alma has not fallen victim to the auracite's grasp is that her desires are not as strong as those we have witnessed in Argath or Ba'Gamnan. That and the aetherial interference caused by other nearby shards.

I have explained all of this to Alma and recommended that she destroy the necklace, yet not only did she refuse, but she begged me to keep this revelation from her father.

And so I did the only thing I could: I devised a means with which I might impede, or at least lessen, the effects of the Otius.

This device, while still incomplete, will amplify the NRR wavelengths emitted by the Virgo. This should work to interfere with those emitted by the Otius, thereby shielding Alma from the brunt of their effect.
The city below is all abuzz with word of a Bangaan brigand loitering about the airship landing. Do you think it could be someone we know, kupo?
You won't believe this, but since our time together in the clockwork city, Ramza and I have grown inseparable! Why, I'd consider him a closer companion now than even my good brother, Hurdy! (Just don't let Hurdy know that, kupo!)
Apologies, Forename, but I needed to speak with you...and you alone.
Oh don't mind me, kupo! I'll just be floating over here in perfect earshot.
Why you─! What makes you think I won't lay you low, right here, right now?
Because we're here to offer you a proposition, that's what! We need information on the Golmore Jungle, and thought a man as well traveled as you might be persuaded to provide some.
Golmore? You of all creatures should know that is Viera land. What are you offering, then?
Why, the opportunity to tell us what you know! Jenomis believes our next adventure lies beneath the jungle canopy, kupo.

<sigh> I should have expected as much.

Very well. Forename, I came to ask if you would meet someone. Now it seems that someone may be able to assist Jenomis, as well. Seeing as you and the principal did right by us before, I do not see a reason why I cannot take both of you.
It was Bwagi and his companions! Perhaps they know of the Orbonne Monastery! Sky pirates are bound to have traveled the whole of Dalmasca on their many misdeeds.
Let me know when you are ready to depart for Rabanastre. We will travel in our airship. The Prima Vista would draw too much unwanted attention.
Board Bwagi's vessel?

That was far easier than I thought it would be, kupo!
What an adventure, kupo! Just think, by tomorrow, we could all be the newest members of the Dalmascan resistance! Er...not that I'm ready to give up my place on the Prima Vista just yet...
Quest Completed
Do not be put off by Lady Fran. The general has quite the edge to her, but it is only because she wants what is best for the resistance.
I've finally come to accept Ba'Gamnan is gone for good, but I will never forget how he met his end. I cannot allow my hatred to consume me as it did him.
The general is not too bad, once you're on her good side─her only good side being her backside...but you didn't hear that from me.
