Past[edit]

Lala has been training to become a Roamer dancer for a while. When the party first arrives at the camp, she is just finishing her ritual to become the next dancer and lead the tribe. She finishes the ritual and the TerraSpirit is infused into her. She is now eligible to perform the ceremony to revive God She is introduced to the tribe. Kiefer falls in love with her right away.

The Roamers celebrate their new dancer with singing, dancing, and wine. Lala, however, is distant. She hides in her tent. The Hero and Kiefer enter the tent with some Viva Grape, a powerful wine. Kiefer asks her why she isn't celebrating with the others. She tells them that she doesn't feel like it. Lala asks her where they are from, to which he replies Estard. She asks where it is and he responds that it is out in the ocean. He tells her that there is a prince in that castle who loves to weasel out of his responsibilities. Lala tells him that she can relate, to the surprise of Kiefer.

They are interrupted by Florin, the tribe's Tula Player. He immediately accuses Kiefer of trying to steal his fiance. But Layla tells him that they were just talking. Florin is not convinced but lets the issue drop.

When the tribe is asleep, monsters attack the tribe. The tribe's Gaurdian, Boldo, is fending off monsters with Kiefer. Boldo is poisoned by one of the monsters. Kiefer, who is protecting Layla, defeats an Ulcer. When the Hero talks to Kiefer, he tells them that they could have used his swordsmanship. Boldo is cured of poison. However, he is unable to go with the rest of the tribe to the Temple of God. Layla, his daughter, refuses to go without her father so she decides to wait until her father gets better. Kiefer volunteers to protect both of them until they are ready to make the journey. Florin refuses at first, saying that this is just a ploy by Kiefer to take him away from Layla. He then decides to stay with Layla as well. However, the tribal chief rebukes him, saying that they need Florin's tula playing to fend off the monsters. Florin relents to this request.

Layla appears later in the submerged Temple of God. On the journey, she sprained her ankle. Florin is mad at Kiefer for her injury but Layla rebukes him, saying that it wasn't his fault. Kiefer helps Layla out of the corridor.

Florin takes out the Terra Tula and the Innocent Dress from the corridor and it seals up again. He wants to perform the ceremony now but the tribal chief tells him that the Tula isn't shining at all, which is required for the Revival of God to occur. He tells him that it is probably the wrong time to revive God. Florin is furious at the chief for giving up without trying. He tells Lala to dance with the Innocent Dress on while he plays the Terra Tula. He then tells the people to pray for God's revival. Together, they perform the Revival of God ceremony.

In the end, it is not successful. The chief tells Florin not to be depressed as there will be another time for the ceremony. Florin tells him that his reason for performing the ceremony was because once God was revived, he would be freed from his duties. He reveals that he has the Terra Mark on his body. He tells them that he wasn't born with it but one day, it appeared on him. This is why he wanted the ceremony to be complete so that he could marry Lala without repercussions. As punishment for his deceit, he decides to exile himself from the tribe. Lala tries to convince him not to go but the chief stops her, telling her that she couldn't marry him anyways because of tribal laws.

The tribe's chief rebukes Lala for dancing on a sprained ankle, saying that she could have hurt herself. Kiefer defends her by saying to let things go and what is done is done, to the relief of Lala.

The next day, Kiefer duels Boldo for the right to become the Roamer Guardian. He is successful and defeats Boldo. The chief acknowledges his strength and makes him a member of the Roamer Tribe. Layla sings to welcome Kiefer into the tribe.

Kiefer and Lala marry. They continue to travel in the hopes of reviving God.
