McTighe was occupied by Militesi Empire when it attacks Dominion of Rubrum. Class Zero is deployed to liberate Akademeia, impressing the dominion leadership with their prowess. After Akademeia's Agito Cadets are placed under the Central Command's jurisdiction, the class is soon deployed to McTighe as their first mission to help the dominion legions in liberating the town. The cadets storm the town and dispatch the local Imperial Troopers and their leader, Major Messna, retaking it.
The townspeople had elected to temporarily leave the mayoral seat open as a show of reverence for their former leader, but a young man nominates himself for the position, and the citizens agree to give him the spot. A dominion quaestor comes to the village to determine its worth of receiving aid from Akademeia, saying that every town needs a strong leader, especially one trying to rebuild. The young mayor had told the townsfolk he would be giving a his first mayoral speech to honor the city's recovery effort, but when the people forget about it and do no show up, he becomes dispirited. The Class Zero cadets can help by gathering the citizens to the town square. The mayor is moved by their support and gives Class Zero a l'Cie Stone as thanks.

The cadets are deployed to McTighe as their first official mission. The objective is to defeat the local commander and liberate the town.
Gathering the Townsfolk for the Mayor's Speech
If Class Zero talks to the mayor, the lone man sitting at the stage, they can accept a quest to gather the townspeople for his speech. The cadets must talk to the five groups of people in the square, including the shopkeeper, to make them gather at the foot of the stage. There are also three doors that need to be examined, indicated by a yellow sign, which will make its residents head out to the square as well. When all the townspeople have gathered, the mayor will stand up and give Mizu'a's Crystal as a reward.
