So you are the adventurer of whom I've heard so much.
Well met, friend. My name is Minfilia, and I lead the Scions of the Seventh Dawn.
I have awaited your coming.
After five long years...you've come back to us, just as Louisoix said you would...
Words cannot describe the joy I feel at this moment. Welcome home.
Aye, I remember you still, and everything you fought for. Know that you are not entirely forgotten.
If Louisoix is watching us, as I choose to believe, he may now rest in peace, his mission finally fulfilled.
Please, be at ease. You are among friends here.
No doubt you're ripe to burst with questions, but have patience─all will be revealed in time.
First, let me begin by telling you who we are and what we do.
We are the Scions of the Seventh Dawn, an order that transcends political boundaries. Our single objective is the preservation of the future of Eorzea.
Among our gravest concerns are the godlike beings known as the primals.
Their existence is a bane upon Eorzea─nay, the world at large, and we have striven to find a lasting solution to the threat they pose.
Our order is home to a number of individuals who, like you, possess a rare and special talent.
This talent takes various forms, but one holds particular interest for us.
Tell me, have you ever experienced a sudden, inexplicable loss of consciousness?
Have you ever had the sensation of being pulled away from reality? Felt as though you were hovering in space, a mind without a body?
All these things are the manifestations of your talent. Yours is the power to transcend the boundaries of the soul─a power known as the Echo.
The Echo allows you to pass through the walls of a man's soul, and hear the resonations of his past.
You will be there in his memories, and see things as he saw them. You may even interact with that which you see, though you cannot change the outcome of events.
For another blessing, the Echo will enable you to know a man's mind even if you cannot comprehend his words.
In short, the Echo is a truly extraordinary power. And this power is strong within you.
It is only a shame that we cannot use it whensoever we choose.
That's right. I too possess the Echo.
With that established, let us return to the subject of the primals.
So long as they exist, the realm cannot take so much as a single step towards true peace.
Measures must be taken─measures which transcend boundaries, be they of faction, race, language, or creed. And to do so, the Scions require the aid of those with our talent.
Make no mistake─the Echo will be instrumental in dealing with the primal threat. Without it, we cannot hope to save the realm.
I know not what it is you desire for yourself, nor what it was that first brought you to Eorzea.
But I firmly believe that the power we possess was given to us for a purpose.
Why else would the gods entrust man with a gift so extraordinary, if not to have him use it?
And so I implore you: lend us your power.
