Story[edit | edit source]
Decades ago, Torte came to Arbor and ventured into the Great Tree Roots to obtain the legendary White Magic Lux. In the process, Torte unsealed the demon Belphegor who travels to Mount Gulg to erupt the volcano. Punished for his actions by the Queen of Arbor by being turned into a mouse, Torte tried to set things right when Arbaroc attempted to stop Belphegor. Torte was knocked out by Belphegor and was unable to stop the demon from possessing the guardian beast.
In present day, Torte meets Aire in the Great Tree Roots as she is looking for a way to cure Brandt's vegetative petrification. Torte agrees to help her and together they obtain the Animal Staff hidden deep within the roots. After curing Brandt, Torte and the others go see the Queen of Arbor to report that Arbaroc has gone on a rampage. The queen sends Torte with the two and orders them to bring Arbaroc back to his senses.
When the party arrives to the top of the Great Tree, Belphegor's evil manifests within Arbaroc and they are forced to kill the guardian beast. After defeating Arbaroc, Torte returns and reports to the Queen of Arbor of the situation as he wishes Brandt and Aire good luck in their quest.
When Brandt and his group travel back in time, they meet Torte as human and help him in accidentally releasing Belphegor. They intervene in Arbaroc's battle with Belphegor and destroy the demon, thus negating Arbaroc's demise years later. Soon after, Torte is turned back into his human form and is allowed to stay in Arbor. Before saying farewell to the party, Torte gives them the ultimate White Magic spell Lux.
