Minfilia would have you assist Alphinaud in his new station as commander of the Crystal Braves.

— In-game description


Optional rewards


Minfilia is in The Solar.



  • Grateful for your offer of aid, Alphinaud bids you speak with Captain Ilberd, his second-in-command, to be briefed on the sensitive matter in which he requires your assistance.
  • You learn that Raubahn and Ilberd have been friends and rivals since before the fall of Ala Mhigo. Under the guise of a long-awaited reunion, the two men discuss the matter of the Garlean spy. At the meeting's conclusion, it is agreed that both parties will continue their inquiries.


Minfilia: <sigh> Try as I might, I cannot shake a creeping sense of dark foreboding... But it avails us naught to fret about the unknown. We must concentrate instead on the problems of the present.
Minfilia: The primals have been relatively quiet of late, and the beast tribes who summon them are under constant surveillance by the Grand Companies.
Minfilia: Should any suspicious activity be afoot, you may be certain that we will hear of it.
Minfilia: And until such time as a permanent solution to the primal problem has been found, we can do little but wait and observe.
Minfilia: As for the Ascians, Urianger is wholly dedicated to finding the means by which we may defeat the dark beings. Let us pray for good tidings on that front.
Minfilia: ...But all of this you knew already. Let us speak then of more current matters─in particular, the state of the Crystal Braves.
Minfilia: Alphinaud did well to found the organization, but ensuring its smooth operation is another matter entirely.
Minfilia: Though I doubt not that he is doing his best, I felt that a helping hand or two would not go astray.
Minfilia: To this end, I offered to send one of the Archons to assist him, but he declined. You know how he can be─independent to a fault, and singularly loath to accept help...
Minfilia: ...Save, of course, when that help comes from you. Alphinaud has entrusted countless matters of import to your care in the past, and I believe he would not hesitate to do so again...were you to offer.
Minfilia: I should be most grateful if you would go to him, and support him in whatever manner you are able.
Minfilia: Alphinaud refused the Archons' help, but I believe that he would welcome yours. I should be most grateful if you would place yourself at his disposal.
Alphinaud: What is it, [Forename]? And do be concise. I am rather busy.
Alphinaud: ...Hm? You would lend a hand, you say? I see. that you mention it, there is a matter that wants for attention.
Alphinaud: Given its sensitive nature, I was hesitant to entrust it to my Braves, but the demands upon my time are such that I had little choice.
Alphinaud: Which is not to say that my men want for labor. Though we are but newly formed, there is already a great demand for our services, and we are hard-pressed to answer all petitions. But I digress...
Alphinaud: The fact is, I would sooner attend to this particular matter myself, but my presence is required elsewhere.
Alphinaud: That being the case, I have entrusted its resolution to my second-in-command, Captain Ilberd.
Alphinaud: Tell him that I sent you, and he will furnish you with the particulars. My thanks in advance, [Forename].
Ilberd: Dispatch the 1st Unit to Ul'dah. The 2nd and 4th are to stand by for further orders.
Roaille: Ever a pleasure, my friend. Nary a day passes by that I do not hear of your valorous exploits.
Ilberd: We must begin by apprising General Raubahn of our findings. Pray meet me at the Hall of Flames, and remain on hand to see that things go smoothly.
