Through Haurchefant the adventurer rceived an invitation from House Fortemps, granting them entry into the Holy See of Ishgard. After seeing the terrible stare of Ishgard due to the 1,000-year-long Dragonsong War, the adventurer and Alphinaud pledge to lend their aid to Lord Haurchefant. Tasked with tracking down heretics in the Coerthas Western Highlands, the adventurer once again encountered Lady Iceheart, whom they had previously traded blows with in the form of Shiva.
Alphinaud proposed that they speak with the dragons to stop the advance of the great wyrm Nidhogg. Persauding the Azure Dragoon Estinien and Ysayle to accompany them, the adventurers headed to the roost of the holy dragon Hraesvelgr. Hraesvelgr told them of the ugly truth behind the Dragonsong, filled with tales of the greed and betrayal of people.
