Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Porom orders the Black Mage and the White Mage to accompany Ceodore and the Hooded Man to Baron. When they reach the castle, the guards deny them entry and have to enter via the Ancient Waterway. After they sneak into Baron Castle, the mages leave Ceodore and the Hooded Man to fend for themselves and head back to Mysidia.

Later on, the Black Mage accompanies Porom and the White Mage to Mount Ordeals so they can request help from Kain. They find the tomb of Cecil and Golbez's father, Kluya. After having a brief conversation with his spirit, they exit the tomb and are attacked by numerous monsters. Kain rescues them and together they return to Mysidia, which they find under siege by monsters. They rescue the Elder and tend to his wounds. The Black Mage guards the Elder while the White Mage oversees his healing process.

Spoilers end here.
