Truth About ExspheresEdit
The first time the group visits the human ranch is when Luin has been attacked after breaking the Seal of Wind. When there, they decide to defeat some Desians in order to steal their uniforms. When done, Raine Sage and Sheena Fujibayashi will use the uniforms and act like they have found and seized Lloyd Irving and the others. They manage to get into the ranch without troubles, but when they are deep enough, they meet up with Botta and his men, and Lloyd accuses them for being Desians, which they still find amusing. Although one of them says their meeting is a perfect chance, Botta refuses to fight them when Kratos Aurion interrupts, and they agree to not cause trouble inside the ranch. Lloyd asks if Kratos and Botta know each other, in which Kratos replies that they met at Martel Temple and the Sylvarant Base. Just as the people have left, they meet up with other Desians. They are about to use their magic to attack Colette and Kratos, but Kratos uses Guardian to protect them both. Then, the leader of the Asgard Human Ranch shows up, and Kratos tells the group that his name is Kvar. He makes the Desians surrounds them, but Colette uses her ring so that they can get away.
As they are running around in the human ranch, they eventually come to a part of the place where they see humans go into some kind of machine, and come out as Exspheres. Kvar explains how the functions of the Exspheres work, making the group say it is terrible. Kvar surrounds them again, and tells Lloyd to give his Exsphere to him, as it was originally his creation. Lloyd, frustrated, asks what is so special about his Exsphere, whereas Kvar says that it was stolen by its hosts many years ago, by human body A012, whose human name was Anna, Lloyd's mother. Lloyd asks in anger if Kvar was the one who killed her, but Kvar says that it was Lloyd's father who did, which makes the boy scream that he is a liar. Kvar continues to explain that when the Exsphere was removed from Anna's body, her mana went out of control, and she transformed into a monster. After that Lloyd's father killed her. Kvar ends this by stating that they both got what they deserved, as they were both pathetic inferior beings. This makes Kratos angry, and tells Kvar not to speak ill of the death. Kvar laughs at this, continuing to insult the couple. Lloyd is about to attack him, but then Sheena uses the last of her guardians to get them away from there. When they are gone, one Desian asks Kvar what his orders are, but Kvar says that they can just track them down thanks to the Chosen's mana signature.
Fight Against KvarEdit
They eventually come back when they have gotten the "Desian Orb" from Pietro in Hima, and get inside the ranch once again. This time, they have to split up in order to get to Kvar's office. When they split up, Lloyd and his team go to stop the machines and get to the office. However, when they shut down the machines and are before the door, it will not open, so they have to wait until the other group has opened it. The other group goes and frees the prisoners, also asking if one of them is from Palmacosta. One says yes, and is asked if he knows about a girl named Chocolat. He says that she was in this ranch to get some tests, before she was taken to the Iselia Human Ranch. After this, they manage to open the office door, so that Lloyd and his team can enter.
When they reach Kvar's office, he is seen talking to someone through a hologram. When they see the group, the woman comments that Lloyd "really does bear a resemblance", confusing Lloyd. Although they interfere, Kvar is not surprised and continues to talk to the woman he identifies as Pronyma, who he accuses for stealing his experiments. She, however, says that she does not know of anything, but instead tells him that she knows of the secret plans he and Rodyle have for the Mana Cannon. Just then, she shuts of the hologram, and Kvar turns over to Lloyd, saying that as soon as he gives the Exsphere to Lord Yggdrasill, he will become the leader of the Five Grand Cardinals. Then, a battle begins as the other group appears.
After the battle, the other group comes and tells Lloyd that Chocolat was taken to Iselia. Just then, Kvar raises up and is about to use his weapon on Lloyd. Colette, however, sees this and runs in between them, getting badly hurt. She falls into Lloyd's arms, but tells him that she is fine. Furious, Lloyd puts her down the floor and stabs Kvar. When Kvar has fallen, Raine sets up the self-destruction system, and they get away as fast as possible. Just then, a new hologram appears, showing a mysterious man. He talks to Kvar shortly, although he knows he is dead. He informs the corpse that he will take all the data that is collected in the human ranch before it is destroyed, then leaves.
