Young Fuji escaping Julius

The Heroine is a member of the Mana Clan, a tribe said to be descendants of the Mana Goddess herself. Raised in the Mana Village by her mother, Elise, she had a happy childhood, listening to legends passed down the Mana line for generations and playing with her friend Willy. One day, the Heroine was preparing for a journey around the world alongside Bogard, one of the legendary Gemma Knights who had put an end to Emperor Vandole and his evil empire ten years before. However, this day would take a dark turn when a knight known as "Dark Lord" came to the village and, declaring the Clan to be Mana-hoarding "heretics" who must be eliminated, had the village razed. The Heroine fled with Elise who, after tripping over a branch, admitted to her that she wasn't her true mother before teleporting her and Bogard, one of the three Gemma Knights who witnessed the massacre, away using magic.

The two appeared in Granz Realm where they were found by Consul Hermann, a friend of Bogard's who, at his urging, sheltered the Heroine at his home. However, Dark Lord and his Heretic Hunters tracked her down and she was again forced to flee, this time alongside Hermann's son, though they were soon separated. The Heroine was found again by Bogard, and began travelling with him as planned, now the sole remaining member of the Mana Clan.

History[edit]

Final Fantasy Adventure & Adventures of Mana[edit]

Sumo meeting Fuji

Sumo encounters a helpless damsel in the Topple plains surrounded by Mushbooms. The brave swordsman defeat the threat, effectively rescuing the young lady. His bodyguard, however, is mortally wounded and pleads the traveler to escort the girl to Wendel into the care of Bogard, the lone Gemma Knight living in seclusion near a waterfall. The knight accompanies the maiden Fuji to the old man's cabin, where they meet with a gruff-looking woodcutter. The man opens up after seeing the maiden's pendant. Turns out the pendant was used in the last war by a similar maiden of the Mana Clan and led the Gemma Knights to victory against the Vandole Empire. Bogard then advises the duo to venture east to a cave connecting Topple to the path to Wendel, where they should meet Cibba. He gives his Mattock to the young knight before bidding farewell to the heroes.

After exploring the eastern part of the continent, the party decides to take a break to a nearby manor. There the heroine instructs Sumo on how to use (curative magic before going to sleep. The morning after, Fuji is nowhere to be found, hinting at the manor occupant's suspicious motives. Hearing that there might be something in the Marsh Cellar to help him in his quest, the hero decides to venture inside, where he comes face to face with a Mysterious Traveler. The man tells of a rumor about Mr. Lee, the lord of Kett Manor confining young maiden in coffins. THe newly formed duo proceed into the damp cavern, only to find a fearsome Hydra guarding a treasure at the end. The traveler parts ways with Sumo, telling him to use the artifact on the Butler guarding the door in the manor.

Back to Kett's Sumo uses the Moor Mirror showing the true face of the Butler, making him transform into a Werewolf. After slaying the beast, the hero continues his search for the maiden deeper into the mansion. He finds her inside a room full of coffins. By the time the duo tries to escape the mansion, they are attacked by Mr. Lee himself who turns into a Vampire. The party must team together if they wish to defeat the undead lord.

Motherly Figure meeting Fuji in Wendel

After this episode, the party finally reaches Wendel where they meet with Cibba of the Gemma Knights. He invites Fuji to stand inside the sacred circle to let her pendant reveal her fated path. Once inside, a sprit of Fuji's Mother appears, telling the young maiden that she and her are part of the line of Mana, seeds fallen from the Tree of Life, tasked with Her protection against the evils of the world. Vandole used the pendant to seal the Mana Tree atop Mt. Illusia, ensure that nobody would ever draw near. The figure pleads for her daughter to join forces with the Gemma Knight to thwart the Dark Lord's plan to take over the world. She then vanishes into thin air, with Fuji lamenting her loss. Her grief is rudely disrupted by an earthquake. The mysterious man barge into the temple informing the party that the Glaive empire is raiding the city. The long-haired lad takes the maiden to a safe place, but Cibba is suspicious of his intentions and ask Sumo to look for him. Our hero finds the town infested with monsters with defenseless guards lying on the ground. Hurrying through the main gate, Sumo finds the mysterious man right outside with Fuji. The man is quickly revealed to be Julius in disguise all along which puzzle the young knight since he helped him back in the marsh cave. Julius replies that he wasn't sure the girl was the right one until he saw what happened inside Wendel temple. He was waiting for this chance to capture her and now Glaive can use her to gain access to the Mana tree. Sumo lunges toward the evildoer but the latter scoffs that his pitiful attempt by knocking our hero against the wall with magic. Unable to stop the Dark Lord's adviser, the young knight is then taken back to Wendel temple by Cibba who heals his wounds with the magic circle. Regaining consciousness, the priest informs Sumo that Fuji is taken hostage in Julius' Airship to the west.

Julius attacking Sumo on Glaive Airship

After going through the mines, Sumo reunites with Bogard, who accompany the hero inside the nearby Airship to rescue Fuji. As they hop into the vessel, they are lifted to the sky as the Airship has completely refueled. Sumo and Bogard finally reach Fuji's cell, where Bogard decides to guard the room while the young knight circle around the ship to reach the window since the door is locked. Unfortunately, as Sumo is about to reach the opposite side, he is cornered by Julius. The hero has just enough time to take the maiden's pendant before being blasted by the evil sorcerer's magic, sending him several feet into the ground.

A while later, Sumo rejoins with Fuji who was held captive in Glaive Castle and find the way to Dark Lord's private quarters. The two men engage into a grueling duel, ending with the evildoer falling before Sumo. As the young knight retrieves the Mana Pendant, he realizes that the artifact was a fake, not to mention Fuji's sudden disappearance. The hero backtracks to Glaive Castle's entrance, only to find a dazed maiden wandering toward the sacred waterfall. Julius appears in front on him, declaring he's too late to stop him. The evil sorcerer then orders the mind-controlled Fuji to raise her pendant to reverse the waterfall's flow. Julius reveals he's a descendant of Vandole and that is why he is able to manipulate a Mana maiden so easily. The girl chants a mysterious spell, effectively inverting the water's flow and opening the portal of the Mana Shrine.

Ascending to the Temple of Mana, Sumo battles his way to the Mana Tree, before which are Julius and a still brainwashed Fuji. Julius mocks Sumo's efforts as too little too late, and engages Sumo in battle, only to be felled by the new Gemma Knight. Fuji is at last freed from Julius' spell, but Julius is not finished yet.

Assuming a third, final form, Julius attempts to finish Sumo off, but is finally destroyed, with the consequence of the Mana Tree being lost as well. However, Fuji's mother appears, and reminds her that they are seeds. Should the Mana Tree ever be lost, a maiden of the Mana Clan can become a new Mana Tree to keep Mana alive in the world. Of course, Fuji must choose this for herself, and has the choice to return with Sumo and await the devastation that would come with the loss of Mana. Fuji makes the choice to become the new Tree, and Sumo agrees to protect her from evil. Before departing, Sumo agrees to carry a message from Fuji's mother to her beloved, Sir Bogard. After which, he leaves his Chocobo with another Chocobo and goes on his way.

Fuji waking up in Cascade Cottage

Fuji awakens from a recurring nightmare inside Cascade Cottage whith Bogard at her side. The maiden confides in her mentor that she felt guilty abandoning the boy and her family to die in the hands of Granz Empire. Her uncle tells her protégé that she needs to look at situations rationally, otherwise she's no better than the Dark Lord. He then adds that the she must find the survivors of the Mana Clan and the best place to start with is the nearby village of Topple. They agree to part ways for a while.

In Topple, she encounters Niccolo who sells her his handy notebook before leaving. Then a young boy asks her to retrieve his book that he lost in the meadow south of the the forest near the village. She agrees to be on the lookout for it and heads to her next destination. While searching for the book in tall grass, the maiden is attacked by the strange man who attacked her village when she was young. The mysterious character reveals that every single member of the mana believers were killed by the Realm soldiers during the raid and that she is next. As he is about to hurt her, an echoing voice of an imperial soldier beckons Julius to meet with the Dark Lord. Julius summons a Chobin Hood in its place, leaving the poor maiden to fend off the threat alone. A military man wandering nearby hears her cries, helping her defeat the monster. Fuji is doubtful of him at first, since he notices his bloody sword, hinting at his potential Realm alignment. Turns out his name is the same as the young boy who escaped with her from the Granz soldiers back when she was a child too. The two of the team up while returning to Topple.

Fuji confronting Sumo in Cascade Cottage

There, the party splits up, Fuji still being unsure about his true identity. She gives the book back to the youngster, his grandpa thanking her by giving out the Magic Rope. While the maiden decides to chat with the villagers, one mentions talking with the military man about her uncle Bogard, whom the guy seemed really interested. This tips off Fuji by thinking the guy really was with the Realm and hurries back to Cascade Cottage. As she hears noise from inside, Fuji erupts inside the cottage, accusing the military man of being on of the Realm's Heretic Hunters. Brandishing her staff towards the man, the maiden asks what Sumo has done to Bogard, to the boy's utter confusion. The hero replies that he only wants revenge on Dark Lord too, making the situation less tense as both realize they aren't working for him. Sumo gives the letter to Fuji, making a light mana sprit appear. Fuji is surprised to hear about the boy never seeing a spirit before, and decide to teach him how to summon one. Seeing the letter is from Bogard, the maiden decides to join Sumo on their way to Wendel.

The party first head to Vinquette Hall as the Master here sealed the Cave to Wendel. After traversing the Batmo Cave, Sumo and Fuji enventually reach the gates of an ominous mansion. The boy has a bad feeling about the place, with the maiden suddenly noticing someone behind the neighboring woods. As she checks the vicinity, she notices a bat fluttering by, changing into a ghostly figure of an old man. The ghost thinks she might be a girl from the Mana Clan, and claims he will ask the master to protect her. As the spirit approaches the girl, she screams and heads back to Sumo, claiming she saw the ghost of a sad old man. Sumo teases her, telling her she needs to relax and the two of them head inside the mansion. The duo is greeted by a butler, informing them that the master is asleep at the moment and that any interview will need to be conducted later. Since the estate's gates only open at night, the butler invites the couple to rest here until his master wakes up. A female guest erupts behind them, called Isabella, with the butler directing her to her room. Sumo accepts the offer to stay overnight, but the maiden is still very suspicious about him and the place, telling him to not no anything funny while she is sleeping. Before heading to bed, they visit Isabella's room, inquiring about Vinquette Hall's rumors. She quips that her master's tastes have changed since moving in here. She asks if the two of them have come to get Count Lee to unseal the caves leading to Wendel, and offer them to ask him herself. She also gives Fuji a tip about a water spirit being trapped in Marsh Cave. The party head to their chamber for a quick nap.

Fuji opening coffins in Vinquette Hall

Fuji is woken up by the same recurring nightmare, with Bogard telling her to ask the Mana Goddess to help Sumo. The maiden as kept praying and praying, but the sadness in her heart won't go away. Fuji hears Sumo talking in his sleep, swaring to his mom and dad that he will protect her, making Fuji realize he is truly the boy she met back when she was a child. She heads to the main hall, hearing another butler talking to himself, saying the girl is perfectly suited to become a bride for his master, and they will return to Mavolia once every is settled. Fuji think he might be talking about Ms. Isabella, and that everybody might be a Mavole. She decides to investigate the hallway he went in, only to discover a room full of coffins a while later. She peers into one of them, discovering a girl sleeping soundly inside. As she opens another one, she realizes that those girls are Mana Women. The Ivory Butler make his entrance, claiming that those are all unsuitable brides to Count Lee, making Fuji the final bridal candidate. The old man ghost appears before them, ordering the butler to lead her to the count, but the servant is having none of it, transforming instead into a hellhound. Fuji must defeat the butler into to press on further. She arrives at a ceremonial room where Isabella and the count are discussing about her. Count Lee reveals to the girl that he is a Mavole from Mavolia. He then proceeds to put Isabella to sleep. The maiden is then joined by Sumo, who questions the Count's motives behind all those Mana Women kidnappings. Turns out Lee tried to keep maidens safe by making them asleep inside coffins as he promised a friend that he would protect the women of the Mana Clan. Count Lee then transforms into his Vampire form and attack the party. After weakening the count enough, he reverts back to his humanoid form as Sumo orders him to release Isabella and the others. The ghost Fuji saw prior in the woods appears, revealing he was the one who asked the Count to protect the Mana Women from the Heretic Hunters. Sumo recognizes the figure as Lord Granz's, making Count Lee questions the Lord about his reason being here. The apparition apologizes for his request, saying there was no other option but to keep Mana Women alive, including Fuji. He tells the maiden that she must stay alive as there is a reason to it. The Count deduces that the two of them must leave this place since Granz Soldiers might come by any minute. Lee assures the others that Isabella is in good hands and bids the party farewell as they venture to the Marsh Cave to befriend the water spirit.

On the way to the Marsh Cave, Fuji apoplogizes to Sumo for making his parents target for the Heretic Hunters, as their put her up during the Mana Village raid. The hero replies that it should be him to apologize since he promised his mother to protect her, but failed. He adds that knowing she is still alive makes him throw away his painful past. The party eventually go inside the March Cave, where they find a strange mirror lying next to a pool of swamp water. As they are about to leave, a loud tremor erupts from the pool, in which the powerful Hydra emerges. Sumo and Fuji team up to defeat the monster, freeing a weakened water spirit. They decide to return to Scaly Lair where a they nurse the elemental back to health by bathing it into clean water. Making a detour to Vinquette Hall, they show the Moon Mirror to Isabella, who explains that this artifact is used to see into the hearts of humans, and that it is a dowry of a Mavole princess. Isabella tries to get them to lend it to her, but has a quick change of heart, saying she has no right to belittle humans. The party then heads to the Cave to Wendel where they are finally able to break the seal blocking the route to the holy city.

Lester performing to a crowd in Wendel

Now entering the meeting point in Wendel, the party notices a bard performing to a crowd, singing a familiar song according to Sumo. As the people around him disband, a grey-haired man showers him with compliments, urging him to tell him his name. The minstrel is named Lester, saying he's on his way to Granz Castle. The strange man warns him about going there, saying that it could cost him his life. Intrigued by that remark, the party approaches the man, as he explains that minstrels are special, and that those with talent are invited to the castle. He then continues his speech by saying that Dark Lord is critical of Granz, and his songs won't be well received, before leaving. While exploring the town, Fuji stumbles into Watts a dwarf blacksmith, telling her that he's heading for a trip. He promises to make her a weapon once he gets home and gives Fuji a sickle before heading out. After making some errands, the party finally venture inside the cathedral, where Bogard and Cibba await. Bogard is happy to see Fuji alive and well, with Cibba commenting on those chosen by the Goddess not dying easily. Sumo introduces himself to the two Gemma Knights, with Sumo remembering Bogard from back when he was a kid. The old man apologizes for the tragic incident he caused to his family, but the boy reiterates that the fault is all on the Dark Lord. The boy is still surprised a Gemma Knight visited his house back then and is deeply honored to meet with Cibba as well. He then asks the sage if he is aware of the Sword of Mana's location, but the wiseman replies that the blade is part of the tale of Gemma. Both of the old men laughs at the idea that Sumo want to be a hero by getting his hands on the sacred blade, which angers both Sumo and Fuji, the latter trying to defend him. In a fit of rage, Sumo bolts out of the cathedral. Cibba declares that the boy hasn't grasped reality yet, and he will never be able to brandish the Mana Sword if his mind doesn't change. He then casts a protective light around Fuji, advising she keeps her pendant in safe hands. The sage then adds that he will keep the maiden safe while Bogard go one with his travels, which upsets Fuji, who doesn't understand why she cannot go on with him. She tries to insist, but Bogard is set in his ways. Fuji then claims he's just like Count Lee, trying to coddle her into staying put. She then asks why would they go to so much trouble protecting Mana Women. Bogard apologizes for sheltering her, saying she musts make her own decisions. A big earthquake suddenly makes the whole cathedral shakes, making Cibba realizes that Granz Realm might be attacking Wendel. Sumo is then seen sent backward from whence it came. The violence of the impact shatters the Moon Mirror, with a tiny piece of it reflecting an ominous shadow coming out of Julius. Cibba swears he's seen Vandole from it, but is interrupted by the Dark Lord, ordering them to surrender the girl. Bogard tries to defy his orders, but Cibba reasons with him, explaining that they cannot risk the city to be nuked by the imperial army. Fuji surrenders and his held prisoner by his lordship.

Julius's shadow seen in from the Moon Mirror

Fuji is seen woken up by Dark Lord and Julius entering her private chamber on Granz Airship. She accuses his darkship of murdering all of her people, but he has another idea in mind. He asks her to join him, to which she vehemently refuses. The lord replies that he has left his personal affairs to Maid Marley, the servant sitting next to Fuji. He tells Fuji to reconsider his offer, then left the premises. After talking with Marley for a while, Fuji discovers that she has been in the service of the Granz household for many years. The maid knows Lord and Lady Granz quite well, as well as Consul Hermann's family. The girl then decides to head to bed. Moments later, she is then woken up by strong quakes. The Dark Lord comes into her room, asking his Marley is alright, to which she nods accordingly. A Granz Soldier reports to his darkship that a reactor is malfunctioning, apparently from magic tampering. His lordship orders his crewmen to execute an emergency landing at Westlake. After leaving Fuji and Marley, the maiden starts sensing magic power emanating from on book. Inside, she learns that a the airship has multiple secret doors. She then inquire the servant about the room's original occupant, and learns that his chamber was prepared especially for Lord Granz' wife. Marley cannot utter her name, as whoever utters her ladyship's name will grow weak. While Marley goes inquiring about a strange noise outside, Fuji takes the opportunity to inspect the asp symbol on the wardrobe, looking visually identical to the one on the book she read earlier. She finds a hidden passage by opening the wardrobe. At the same time, a light spirit appears in from on her, telling her that it was sent by Cibba, and is responsible from the reactor break. By following the secret parth, Fuji overhears Dark Lord and Isabella chatting about his lordship's mother, Medusa. Isabella realizes that the Dark Lord is half Mavole, half human. Since she isn't human, the curse doesn't work on her. However, the cursed as spread since Lady Medusa bonded with Lord Granz. His Darkship bemoans the fact that he cannot save her since he doesn't possess Mana power. The conversation is interrupted by a guard, stating that the girl has escaped her room and that Marley has been taken away. Smelling Julius's arrogance, the Dark Lord rushes to his room to investigate. Meanwhile, Fuji gets out of her hiding spot, immediately noticed by Isabella. Fuiji is surprised to see Isabella alongside Dark Lord, but the Mavole lady tells her that her race seeks stronger rulers. She isn't concerned with this world's problems as her only interest right now is His Lordship.

Dark Lord ordering Julius to let go Marley

As Fuji heads to save Marley and avenge all of who fell to the hand of His Darkship, Isabella warns her to be careful of Juius, as he is nether human nor Mavole. Fuji cannot take a break, as she is immediately spotted by some Granz Soldier, altering the Dark Lord of her presence. His Lordship asks why she came out of hiding, to which the girls answers that she wanted to save Marley. His Darkship brings her to a private chamber, where Julius is seen holding Marley up. Since the girl went out of her room on her own volition, this would clear Marley of any wrongdoing in the Dark Lord's eyes. However, Julius doesn't see it the same way, as they should uphold the punishment to everyone. His Lordship orders Julius to leave Marley alone, whith the latter commenting on his master letting his emotions going into his head. Julius reveals that they want the key to Mana Sanctuary, as it is passed on to Mana Women from one generation to another. Julius then asks to be alone with Fuji, his arrogance shocking Dark Lord since he is supposed to give out orders. He nonetheless complies and leave them be. Now alone, Julius immediately casts a dark energy ball to Fuji, and say he'll spare her life if she answers his riddle: the Emperor got his hands on Mana power and was able to initiate the Dark Age. If her Mana Clan had protected taht power. he wouldn't have been able to. Why did her people let the Emperor obtain that kind of power? Fuji asks why the sorcerer hates the Mana Clan so much, but his met with dark magic again. Juliua answers that he only wishes to meet the Goddess, and orders the girl to tell him where the key is. Fuji stays tight-lipped this time, but Julius had enough of her, and decides to cast the ultimate spell to kill her. From the outside of the cabin, Cibba the Sage throws some light magic spell at him, making him falter. Seeing Sumo next to Cibba, Fuji throws her pendant at him, explaining that this is the key to the Mana Sanctuary and he should protect it at all costs. The two heroes cannot spare another word, as Julius flings another ball of darkness to him, making Sumo lose his balance and fall down from an incredible height. Dark Lord erupts into the room, scolding Julius's hubris. Cibba rises, telling His Darkship that his parents surpassed the limits of humans and Mavoles to love one another, and it was his father's love that founded Granz Realm. His Lordship denies it, declaring that his father ran away from his mother and brother, just as the Mana Clan did as they left her to die. Cibba urges Fuji to find the truth for herself and disappear in a flash of light. A soldier enters the room, claimning that the magic tampering was too hard to handle for the ship, and they could crash at any minute. The Dark Lord orders his underling to let the girl and Marley stay in their private quarters.

The guard is revealed to be none other than Bogard, who snuck into the ship while it was refueling. The Gemma Knight joins Fuji and reach the engine room, where they slay the Guardian watching the area. There, they meet with an earth spirit being held hostage by Vandole himself. The two of them crash the vessel into Menos Outskirts and set out to find Sumo.

They eventually make they way to Menos Village where they overhear a couple of elderly people talking about a girl named Amanda carrying an injured young man to her house. As they approach Amanda's house, the energetic young girl comes out saying she is in a rush. Turns out Sumo is still recovering from his fall from Granz Airship, but is happy to see both of them safe and sound. The young knight inquires his mentor about Cibba's fate, the latter assuring him that he can't be done so easily. Sumo then realizes that his pendant is missing, to which Bogard comments about a mysterious girl running out of this house just now. The young hero decides to check on her friend Amanda to see if she might have taken his precious artefact. After touring around the village, Sumo learns that Amanda went to the City of Jadd. Bogard then decides to head for the city with Fuji while Sumo leaves a note to Amanda.

Fuji recognizing Lester in bird form

While visiting Jadd, Fuji and Bogard stumble on Devius Manor. Sensing a familiar magic power, the old man decide to investigate along with Fuji. Once inside, they discover from Genoa, the head servant, that Lady Medusa has turned almost everyone into birds. Bogard explain to a puzzled maiden that Lady Medusa is the Mavole princess and wife of Lord Granz. There is an old supersition that says one should never utter her name in fear of being cursed. Genoa clarifies that her ladyship has been losing her strength ever since she came to the human world. Bogard theorizes that Lord Granz might have been using Mana Power to sustain her wife. As of now, Lady Medusa has lost her memory and is afflicted with despair. The head butler adds that she has no doubt retreated to the Dune Maze since it is where Lord Granz and her pledged their eternal love. If they destry the Altar of Time, then maybe she could regain her senses. Bogard and Fuji then hurries to the aformentioned place, but are stopped outside Devius Manor when they see a peculiar bird standing in front of them. Fuji recognize it to be Lester and says to follow it.

The old Gemma Knight and the young maiden Fuji are then seen rushing to the Altar of Time where an injured Lady Medusa lays unconscious after confronting Sumo and Amanda in a fight. Fuji tries to heal the mavole lady, but she is too weak to be saved, and gives Lord Granz's lute into Sumo's care while pleading for the adventurers to let their birds partake of her blood to let go of their curse. She dies shortly after knowing that her family is safe and sound. Devius and the Dark Lord burst into the room and teleport the lifeless body away, foiling the party's attempt to collect Lady Medusa's blood and curing Lester. While the Dark Lord urges Devius to get revenge from the Mana Clan betraying their mother once again before teleporting away, the latter assures his brother that he will them to justice by killing them at his manor. Devius then teleports Bogard out of the cave just like Stroud did moments before, effectively capturing him in his lair.

Cursed Amanda telling Sumo to finish her

Back to Devius Manor, Fuji suggests that Sumo wait while she and Lester confront Devius, as both him and Sumo have lost themselves to hatred and sadness and there is a chance that he might regret his acts if he goes inside. The young knight complies and both Lester and Fuji team up to rescue Bogard and seek Devius. After climbing the tower, the old mentor is seen in Devius' private chambers inside a giant cage whose enchanted with magic. Bogard explains that the spell won't break until Devius himself is defeated, but considers his fate to be payback from not protecting Lady Medusa back in the Atlar of Time. He argues that should he had used Mana Power to cure her, she might have been okay. He continues by telling Sumo/Fuji that from the Dark Lord and Devius' perspective, the Mana Clan and him are enemies who hoarded the power of Mana and that he's made up his mind about not using this sacred power selfishly anymore.

The heroes proceed further into the maze, eventually reaching Devius himself on a rotating platform. The half-mavole declares that now that his mother has passed away he has no reason to stay in this world, but he'll certainly stay for payback. The then transforms in to Mindflare and attack the party. After bring gravely injured, Devius orders Fuji to finish him, but the latter refuses, stating that she felt that he lived his life bearing such a heavy burden of sorrow that she doesn't want to hurt him more. A mysterious voice starts echoing through the battle area, stating it will end his life for him. The girl recognizes the voice as Julius's, but the echoes continues by saying Devius must forgive the foolish humans, as this is their idea of justice. Julius then offers Sumo to either finish him for good or to give him some elixir of life, healing his wounds. Devius refuses to give up, as he is the proud son of the Medusa, but recognizes the potential of the boy to soon wield the Sword of Mana. The conversation is interrupted by a weird creature coming out of nowhere who proceeds to steal Devius's life out of his body. The hideous apparition quickly fades away, leaving no trace of Devius. Sumo, Bogard, Lester, and Fuji are then seen mourning the souls of Amanda, Devius, and Lady Medusa, with the maiden lamenting the fact that they couldn't save anybody. Lester tries to sooth the atmosphere by playing his lute, with Sumo lending him Lord Granz's favorite one. The melody echoes throughout the vicinity, making the hearts of men quell and the Grudgies of Miasma Glen disappear. After his performance, Genoa approaches Fuji, introduces her, and entrusts her a moon spirit as thanks. The minstrel and the young knight decide to head to Granz Castle by taking the route via Miasma Glen while Fuji stays with Bogard. He confides in the late Lord Granz that he was once again unable to protect Medusa and that he feels worthless and disgusted at himself. Fuji apologizes for bumping in and the two head to their next destination.

Inside Cascade Cave, the party meets with Julius once again, this time appearing under his shadow self. He taunts Fuji for killing Devius, telling she's almost qualified to join him rebuild the Vandole Empire. The Mana girl tries to swing her staff to the phantom, but the stick only meets thin air. Julius summons his servant Fullmetal Haggar to confront the party, but the creature is eventually defeated. A wood spirit comes out of the monster, joining the girl for the rest of the adventure. With its help, Fuji and Bogard can move closer to their destination and cross the Path to Mt. Illusia.

The team reuniting in Granz Castle

The party ultimately come across the gate to Granz Castle, Bogard commenting on the castle being built by the most loved man in the kingdom, and now inhabited by the most feared. The main door from whence they came in immediately shuts as the creepy voice of Goremand echoes, saying that the Dark Lord his waiting for them and he's personally looking forward to devouring their souls. While souting the dungeon cells, Fuji notices Willy an old inhabitant from the Mana Village and friend of her lying in a prison. The young man is surprised to see both her and Bogard alive, but cannot join the group as the door cell is shut thight. A red bird suddenly flutters by with gold and silver keys in its beak. Fuji uses the silver key on the door, successfully liberating her childhood friend. He reveals to the Mana girl that one of his old prison mate was a friend of hers, but he is even more astonished to realize that Sumo is stil alive and probably inside the castle as they speak. Willy decides to join Fuji and head to Granz's room while Bogard free the other slaves. A while later, they reach Lord Granz's room where they reunite with Bogard, Sumo, and Lester. The party exchanges news about Amanda's death, and eventually settle on finding clues about Lord Granz's situation. Fuji joins Sumo for the remainder of the dungeon and helps him find clues about Granz. After reaching the castle top, they engage into battle with Garuda before reaching Stroud. The Dark Lord, accompanied by Isabella and Goremand, congratulate the party for making it this far. Fuji tells His Darkship that she didn't get a bad feeling from him when they spoke on the airship, even considering that he killed so many of her kin. The Dark Lord replies that he simply weeded out what was in the way. The world cannot be united without sacrifices. He then asks his underlings to leave as the draws his sword toward the Mana girl. After a grueling fight, the Dark Lord is mortally wounded, alerting Isabella who runs by his side. He asks her to remove his mask revealing his striking resemblance to his late brother Devius. He then entrusts Isabella to stop Julius, but before he says anything else, Goremand butts in to steal his soul. This enrages Isabella to the point of turning into her bestial form, producing a massive earthquake.

After getting hit by giants tremors at Granz Castle, Fuji recovers from her injuries inside a private residence in Ishe after collapsing in Glass Desert, surrounded by her friends Sumo, Bogard, Cibba, Lester and Willy, as well as Selah the one who found the group and nursed them back one by one. Bogard explains to Sumo that Selah is an old friend of him and Cibba, back when they were called Gemma Knights. Selah was able to find their bodies with the aid of the birds. Just as they form a group meeting, a bird comes flying by as the sandstorm outside recedes. Cibba interprets the bird's song as a message that Julius got his hands on the Mana Pendant and that it is only a matter of time before he gets Mana Power. Fuji then plead Cibba for letting her know about the Mana Sword's resting place, to which the old sage replies that the fabled weapon sleeps underneath the Subsea Volcano. Cibba warns Fuji that the sword chooses its wielder and that the way to the volcano is a treacherous place. The Man girl then decides to journey to the Subsea Volcano with Willy.

Fuji & Willy meeting King Lorimar

The two of them use Prof. Bomb's cannons to fast travel to a new locations, the Snowfield, where they eventually reach the secluded realm of Lorimar Castle. Inside, everyone is frozen solid due to Malyris's curse in Kahla Peaks. King Lorimar is the only one unaffected by the spell. Marley interrupts the conversation, claiming the king sold his own people to the Vandole Empire so he could get Mana power. Vandole gave him an old, evil sprit which Lorimar sacrificied his people for. The King replies that he had no other choice, lamenting the fate of his people and his poor son Durac. Marley tries to leave, but recognizes Fuji and are relieved to see each other again. She comments that when she heard that Fuji had slain the Dark Lord, she felt sadness and content at the same time. Fuji then asks Marley if she know how to get to the Subsea Volcano. She replies that they have to pass through Rocky Wilds, however, the person operating the local armory has also been frozen. The adventurers need to venture into Kahla Peaks and destroy the evil sprit plaguing this kingdom. She gives Sumo the key to Lorimar Castle, allowing the duo to go to the castle back gate. The party eventually reach Malyris's lair and defeat her, undoing the curse. They are officialy thanked by the new king of Lorimar, Durac, and can now head to the Subsea Volcano.

After a long an arduous journey, Fuji and Willy finally retrieve the rusted Mana Sword back to Cibba in Ishe to have it inspected. Cibba is glad to see them and adds that the sword should gleam like the sun in the hands of a Gemma Knight. Bogard scoffs at that remark by revealing that the Gemmas fought to end with that sword and that it only shines in Granz's fairy tales. While momentarily taken aback by this realization, Sumo/Fuji theorizes that the sword is to be held within the heart, since even a tree branch can become a holy sword when held with deep conviction. Both Cibba and Bogard congratulate Sumo/Fuji for finding out the truth by himself. Cibba adds that if someone uses the Mana power to control the whole world, it's all fleeting, from which Bogard butt in to say that it is certain to say that thousands of lives will be sacrified for this sudden vision. Bogard also remarks that by the pace of things, Julus is already way ahead of them with the Mana pendant in his possession, to the point that it is impossible to stop him in due time. Cibba then suggests to use the raising Dime Tower to get to the Mana Sanctuary since its technology was used to create a bridge that led there. While it is rumored to have sank in the Glass Desert, Bogard reveals to the group that the tower was sealed by none other than Cibba himself. It is then agreed on that Willy should help Cibba break the seal on Dime Tower while Sumo and Fuji head to the Ruined Path. Bogard warns the duo to be careful since the seal protecting the Ruined Path is far stronger than the one Count Lee did on the Cave to Wendel.

Sumo & Fuji in the Glass Desert

After crossing the Glass Desert, Sumo and Fuji reaches the door to the Ruined Passage, but are greeted with Goremand before they can enter. He comments about not killing Isabella after messing up during the fight in Granz Castle, and as the duo why do they think he's here for. He reveals that there is a small island housing the Sealed Cave due west of here; should they want to enter the temple, this is the only way. The adventurers are incredulous at first, but decide to go there, as they find the door to the Sealed Temple shut. There, after solving lever puzzles, they encounter with the Lich guarding the sprit of darkness Shade.

Together with Wisp, Shade break the seal to the door of the Ruined Passage, revealing a long treacherous maze. Deep within the structre, they find a magical portal, which Fuji comments on being a point of no return. The two agree to continue, and are transported to Dime Tower. The party decides to split up, Sumo going upstairs while Fuji searches underground. Downstairs, The girl meets with a strange machine similar to those encountered in the Subland River and the Subsea Volcano, called Marshall. The warbot felt lonely after seeing all of its friends die and is eager to join the Mana girl. Thanks to the robot, Fuji is able to translate the inscription next to the entrance. She learns that the Dime Tower was built by the Vandole Empire to supply it in Mana power and that power as primarily used as a weapon. This angers Fuji, who destroys the stone tablet in a fit of rage. The girl tells Marshall that Mana shouldn't be used as a weapon, but the warbot doesn't understand her emotional outburst. The duo continues to ascend the tower, solving puzzles by reading the many scriptures. As they climb to the second to last floor, they are spotted by the tower's guardian who confronts the party. After its defeat, Sumo is reunited with Fuji and introduces Marshall to him. On the last floor, Julius' shadow greets them by making the whole structure tremble, saying that by defeating the Golem, they unlocked the tower's ultimate defense system of crashing down into the earth. The shadow disappear as the whole room splits in two, stranding Fuji and Marshall away from the exit. Sumo tells the maiden to jump, but she is unable to do so by herself. Fortunately, the warbot propels her toward Sumo, telling the duo that it will remains in Dime Tower along with his fellow robots. He bids farewell to Sumo and Fuji before sinking with the tower. The adventurers don't have time to weep and take a teleporter to the gates leading to the Mana Sanctuary.

Fuji transforming into the next Mana Tree

Inside, the party realizes that Julius's power is consuming Mana at an alarming rate, afftecting even the surrounding plants. They must hurry before the sorcerer reaches the Mana Tree. Further in, Julius's shadow makes another entrance, calling forth Demagon the dragon guardian of the sanctuary. The duo eventually vanquish the fearsome beast, allowing them to proceed deeper into the Mana Temple. Reaching the end of the temple where Julius's shadow awaits them, the party is informed that no one passes ahead as it is sacred territory for Julius the Divine. He proceeds to show dark doppelgangers of Bogard, Lester, Willy, even Sumo to confess their deepest sins to Sumo. The four illusions are then manipulated to attack the Fuji. The girl tries to reason with the young knight, recalling the first time they met at Cascade Cottage, and how proud of him she is from being brave against all odds. She plants her sword to the ground, symbolizing she's thrown away her doubts. She realized that even if Julius were to take control, she couldn't fight Sumo. At the same time, the young knight calls upon multiple friends to help him regain consciousness. Count Lee, Isabella, and Marley all synchronize their prayers to her, breaking her free from Julius's control. Moments after, Bogard, Lester, and Willy are all freed from their curse, with Cibba teleporting next to Sumo to join the fight. Bogard regrets of not telling FUji earlier that her wife, the current Mana Tree, was her mother. She replies that she somehow new all along, as he was always at his side. Cibba confronts Julius, telling him he's the one who has yet to evolve, just like when he was called Vandole. In that moment, Julius's shadow asks his master for more magic, to which Julius agrees, releasing Lord Granz in front of everyone. It turns out Granz life force was what kept shadows and monster alive to get stronger. As the party decides to attack the shadow the latter pummels them with dark magic, sending them on the floor. Lord Granz suddenly stands up and sends a bolt of light energy to Julius's Shadow. Then Granz sends everyone to fight the multiple shadows of Julius to eradicate the evil once and for all. Sumo and Fuji are invigorated by the collective light of hope, and proceed to confront the real Julius.

Julius claims the last living breath of the Mana Tree, prompting Sumo to ask what he wants after gaining that much power. The almighthy sorcerer replies that he wants to meet the goddess, as she single-handedly created the world. A being this powerful should bow before him, making him the ruler of the world. He then offers Fuji to opportunity to free her from her fate, as she is destined to become the next Mana Tree. Sumo refuses to let her fall his his hands, his resolve making the Sword of Mana regain full power. The party engage into their last fight between good and evil. Sensing defeat, Julius absorbs all of the world's Mana to transform into a demonic form. Upon dying, Julius claims he won't disappear, as long as Mana power is in the world.

The group of friends is finally reunited, as Fuji bids them farewell to replace her mother as the Mana Tree. Sumo swears to protect her as long as he can, and the main replies by saying he will always be in her heart. The new Gemma Knight is lastly seen alone honoring the new Mana Tree.
