1 A cutscene reveals that one of your missions is to rescue Penelo. Larsa will also join you as Lamont as you leave the Bhujerba Aerodrome.

3 Go all the way north for a cutscene. Afterwards, you will enter the mine/dungeon.

1 | The Imperial, Larsa

Larsa will join your party during the mission to rescue Penelo. Hiding his identity as Lamont earlier, Larsa is brother to Vayne Solidor and second-in-line to the throne of Archades under the currently ruling House Solidor. When he joins your party, he also makes for a good support character.

Lhusu Mines Story Walkthrough

4 After the cutscene, search the mines for Penelo. It will be useful to equip a character with the 'Libra' technick to look out for mines and other traps.
5 Head up north, past the tracks, for a cutscene with Larsa and the bangaa Ba'Gamnan.
6 You can either fight Ba'Gamnan or flee to enter another cutscene. If you're at a low level, flee towards Bhujerba.
7 Two more cutscenes occur, one showing Penelo's current condition and another happening as you enter Bhujerba.
8 You will be tasked to spread rumors that Basch is alive in Bhujerba to gain an audience with the city governor. Talk where there are city parijanahs (guys who are carrying books) to advance the meter.
9 Once the meter is full, the Marquis will speak with you. A cutscene happens where the true identity of Amalia is revealed.

6 | Fight or Flight

The bangaa scoundrel Ba'Gamnan will be your 'mini-boss' for this fight. Depending on whether you've leveled up or not, he can be a very tought opponent to kill or it could be a walk in the park. You are given the option of fleeing if you feel that Ba'Gamnan is too overpowered for your current level.

8 | Spread the rumor that Basch is Alive

In Bhujerba, you'll need to give proof that Basch is alive. When you're given the choice to spread rumors of his longevity, do so near the city parijanahs(city officials that are carrying books). The Resistance Movement in Bhujerba will take hold of you quickly, and the story will advance as well.

9 | Long Live the Queen, Ashelia B'nargin Dalmasca

Ashe, the previously dead Queen of Dalmasca, will be joiining your party during this cutscene. She will come out of the shadows and will be revealed to have been alive all along but had hidden her identity behind the facade of Amalia for obvious reasons. She is a good battle-mage for your party.

The Leviathan Story Walkthrough

10 There are two cutscenes to look out for in the Leviathan, one of which introduces another rebel, Vossler, to the party as a guest.
11 Make your way through the ship to search for Ashe.
12 Enter the central block, where another boss battle happens. After finishing off the boss, head into the No.1 Brig area.
13 You will have to leave the area to find Penelo in a cutscene. Flee when you encounter soldiers, or disarm the alarm.
14 Vossler will leave the party at this point, where he will be replaced by Penelo. You will also receive a new item, the Manufacted Nethicite.
15 Prepare for yet another boss battle with the Judge, Ghis. Enter another cutscene after defeating the boss.

10 | The Rebel Assault

The rebels will have a mini-reunion on the Leviathan, what with Vossler having tracked your party. He joins your party onboard the Leviathan as a guest.

14 | The Manufacted Nethicite

The nethicite is a crude imitation of the naturally-formed magicite. Instead of giving out Mist, this mass-produced version takes it from the surrounding area. Your party will receive this before the fight with the Judge Ghis.

15 | The Judge Ghis

Judge Ghis, a member of the Judges of the Empire, is your boss for the Leviathan. He will be a strong opponent if you haven't been taking care of your levels.
