*You, Leon, and a Pactogonal Knight are standing in a back room of The Shears.*
Leon: Listen <Character>, you may have seen the tower looming over the horizon. The Rose have been constructing it ever since Alteon sided with them.
Leon: The tower was heavily guarded, but lately I've scouted less and less soldiers, despite it being near completion.
<Character>: What does it do?
Leon: According to these plans I acquired before leaving Swordhaven, atop the Tower lies an Oculus.
Leon: This device is meant to focus a source of magical energy and use it to search out magical creatures and artifacts so they can be captured.
<Character>: Then we must destroy it!
Leon: It may not be that simple, but yes. We must... interrupt the source of the focus, then find a way to disable it.
Leon: The guards that still remain seem preoccupied, so now is our best time to strike.
Knight: Leon, what about Cr..
Leon: I'll deal with that.
Leon: <Character>, just make sure to take out the guards.
<Character>: Got it!
Leon: Then we're ready. Let's go.
*You head through the forest to and up the Oculus Tower, until you find two panicked Rose Soldiers running in the opposite direction.*
Rose Soldier (1): The Oculus, It's overloading!!!
Rose Soldier (2): Run!!!
*The whole tower trembles; the corridor now ends a few steps ahead of you and Leon, turned into an otherworldly blue magical landscape.*
Leon: We must get to the top <Character>! I HAVE TO SAVE HER BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!!!
*You keep fighting your way to the top of the tower, now battling Mana Elementals rather than Rose Soldiers; once at the top, you find a hovering woman who too is covered in a blue starry pattern, with gold adornments.*
Leon: CREST!! What have they done to you!
*Crest looks at you and Leon, raises her hand, and speaks.*
ManaCrest: I sense Magic.

Leon: She can explain things later, but we need to leave.
