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

Bartz Klauser and the party arrive at castle on the back of Tycoon's wind drake to save the Water Crystal, which lies atop the Walse Tower. The king of Walse assures Lenna the Crystal is safe, but a meteorite falls near the tower, and soon after the Water Crystal is destroyed by a raging Garula (implied to have been possessed by Exdeath), and the tower sinks.

Later, after Exdeath obtains the power of the Void, he uses it to destroy Walse.

Spoilers end here.

Shiva is an optional boss whom the party can find at the back of Castle Walse behind a waterfall. Upon her defeat the party can summon her into battle. Challenging Shiva as soon as the battle becomes available is not advisable as the party is yet to acquire the Summoner job, so even if the player wins, they will not be able to summon her until later.
