When the group first comes through the area, they go inside a house near the pass to talk to a man named Koton. Prior to this meeting, they had discovered that the imposters were going to sell Spiritua's Book of Regeneration to him, so they go there to get it back. However, Koton refuses, but he tells the females in the group that if they can get him the Spiritua statue from a nearby House of Salvation, he will let them read it. After the party leaves, they discover from a group of people that the Desians are heading to Palmacosta, lead by their leader named Magnius. Because of this, Lloyd Irving and the others decide to go to the city to learn more about what is happening.
