Alexandra Talon is working in an alchemist's shop when a man by the name of Anorm Geras enters and proposes she help him in a certain mission supposedly issued by the King Ornuel himself. Alexandra accepts, being told to meet at the Royal Guard's Second Military Complex within a week's time.

On the day of the meeting, Alexandra finds herself just one of many diverse individuals present for the mission. Anorm explains they will be descending into the Blade Crypt for the mission.
