I am a machinist. Do you know the history of my trade?
Trouble with Baert Trading CompanyEdit
Mustadio and his father, Besrudio Bunansa, came into possession of the Taurus auracite, which Cardinal Alphonse Delacroix is seeking. Delacroix hired Ludovich Baert, leader of Baert Trading Company, to obtain the Stone by force. Baert's minions captured Besrudio, but Mustadio escaped.
Mustadio is cornered by the mercenaries, but is rescued by Ramza and Agrias on their way to Lionel Castle. After fighting their way to Lionel, the three meet with Delacroix, unaware of what he is up to. Agrias stays behind to guard Princess Ovelia, while Ramza accompanies Mustadio back to his hometown of the Clockwork City of Goug to rescue his father. Mustadio separates from Ramza, and gets captured.
Ramza is accosted by Baert himself, who has Mustadio and Besrudio brought before them. Baert threatens to kill Besrudio if Mustadio does not divulge the location of the Taurus Stone. Mustadio claims it is in the chimney near Ramza, and Baert has Ramza retrieve it for him. After revealing that the cardinal is complicit, Baert leaves with the Stone, and his minions attack Ramza. A disarmed Mustadio struggles to hold his own, but is rescued by Ramza and his forces. Upon regrouping, Besrudio bemoans the loss of the Stone, but Mustadio reveals the one in Baert's hands is a fake, and that he has the real Taurus Stone.
Back to LionelEdit
As Ramza and Mustadio make their way back toward Lionel by an alternate route, Baert returns to Lionel with the fake stone, unaware that he goes to his own death at the hands of the cardinal. Agrias escapes from Lionel and rejoins Ramza and Mustadio, but the trio runs into trouble with mercenary Goffard Gaffgarion. Ramza defeats Gaffgarion in a one-on-one battle at the gate of Lionel, allowing the trio to confront the cardinal.
Cardinal Delacroix pulls out the Scorpio Stone and transforms into Cúchulainn, one of the Lucavi demons. Ramza and Mustadio prevail, defeating the monster and recovering the Scorpio Stone. From here on Mustadio remains with Ramza throughout his quest to defeat the Lucavi.
Two new gadgetsEdit
After defeating Belias, Ramza and Mustadio return to the Clockwork City of Goug and learn that Besrudio has discovered an unusual-looking device with a strange symbol. After helping a warrior named Beowulf Cadmus rescue Reis Duelar from the Mining Town of Gollund, they are rewarded with an auracite, which they use to power up the device, which is actually Construct 8.
Construct 8 tells Ramza to give it an order, and Ramza, wanting to test out his new ally, tells it to attack Mustadio. Construct 8 attacks Mustadio, and Ramza is forced to scramble to resurrect him with a Phoenix Down.
After the fight with Zalmour Lucianada, they return to Goug where Besrudio has come up with another unusual device. Another auracite is required to activate it. At Nelveska Temple, Ramza and Mustadio defeat another bot, Construct-7-New and gain the Cancer Stone. Taking it to Besrudio, they activate the device, which summons Cloud Strife. He runs off, but Ramza and Mustadio later catch up with him after defeating Adrammelech, when he runs into trouble at the Trade City of Sal Ghidos, where Ramza had previously bought a flower from an unusual girl.
