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

The Warriors of Light arrive to Cornelia and, after showing their crystals, are sent to the castle. There, the King asks the warriors to save his daughter, Princess Sarah, from the hands of the corrupt knight Garland. After rescuing Sarah from the Chaos Shrine, they later return with the Mystic Key to retrieve the castle's store of explosives, in order to blast a route out of the Aldean Sea.
