Mission[edit | edit source]

13 - Eternity Unpromised[edit | edit source]

Mark: Goblin Chieftain
Locale: Archylte Steppe - Northern Highplain
Class: C

It is a cruel and contemptible contest the fal'Cie have devised, but one from which I may not yet absent myself. We assembled l'Cie must overcome innumerable obstacles as we compete to slay the goblin chieftain on the northern highplain. The prize? Freedom from bondage as a l'Cie.

I will win, be made human again, and return to propose to my lover, from whose arms the tyrant fal'Cie stole me.

15 - Tribal Warfare[edit | edit source]

Mark: Goblin Chieftain
Locale: Archylte Steppe - Northern Highplain
Class: C

There are other l'Cie who share my Focus. The first to complete it is the winner, with freedom from this l'Cie fate as his prize. But for all who have tried, none have yet survived.

...So I guess that will make me the first! No more being a fal'Cie tool for me! Just need to take out that goblin chieftain on the northern highplain, near the range of the behemoth king...

20 - Words Unspoken[edit | edit source]

Mark: Goblin Chieftain
Locale: Taejin's Tower - The Palisades
Class: C

When father told me he was leaving us, I struck him full in the face. I can still remember the look in his eye to this day... just as I'll never forget the way he picked himself up and left without a word. I found out later that he had turned to crystal. It pain me now to think of how I never made any attempt to understand how he suffered under the burden of his Focus. That is why I must triumph over the goblin chieftain near Taejin's Tower—so that someday I can tell him that I am sorry.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

A goblin is a small, mischievous creature found in many European folk tales and legends. The word "goblin" comes from the Norman French word Gobelinus, the name of a ghost that haunted the town of Évreux in the 12th century.
