Reynn and Lann ride a train run by a Cactuar Conductor and arrive in the town of Cornelia. There, they find a host of Mirages in the employ of the Bahamutian Army attacking the city. They make quick work of them, but Lann shocks the townsfolk by assuming his Jiant form. Nevertheless, the town's leader, Princess Sarah, detects the truth of their otherworldly nature and warmly invites them to her castle. She tells them that they are the "Jiants from the Hills" of prophecy, who will bring either salvation or ruin to Grymoire. The two leave, agreeing to return to help Cornelia, but first they must visit The Nether Nebula to capture more Mirages.
This chapter is fairly short and is mostly cinematic. There is only one battle and it consists of several Mirages that cannot be imprismed. Gates are introduced at the end of this chapter.
