Trouble With Baert Trading CompanyEdit
Besrudio ran afoul of Baert Trading Company, who had been hired by Cardinal Alphonse Delacroix to relieve him of the Taurus Zodiac Stone. Besrudio was captured, but Mustadio escaped and was later rescued by Ramza Beoulve. Mustadio took Ramza to Goug, where the younger Bunansa began searching for his father. He was captured, and Ludovich Baert brought both Mustadio and Besrudio before Ramza.
Baert threatened to have Besrudio harmed if Mustadio did not divulge the location of the stone. Besrudio told Mustadio not to help Baert, but Mustadio revealed that the stone was in a chimney near Ramza. Baert forced Ramza to retrieve the stone for him, and then left with it. His thugs attacked, but Ramza and Mustadio fought back and defeated them. Besrudio bemoaned the loss of the stone, but Mustadio had a trick up his sleeve: he had created a fake stone in case something like this had happened. The stone Baert carried back to Delacroix was the fake, and the merchant paid for this with his life.
Besrudio later discovered the deactivated Construct 8 and asked for Ramza and Mustadio's help in powering it up. Ramza retrieved the required Zodiac Stone and powered up the bot. Construct 8 immediately requested orders from Ramza, and wanting to have some fun, Ramza ordered Construct 8 to attack Mustadio.
Construct 8 overdid it, knocking Mustadio out, and Ramza had to get him a Phoenix Down. Later, Besrudio found another device, this time a dimensional portal. Again, a Zodiac Stone was needed and again Ramza retrieved the correct one. When the machine was activated, it transported Cloud Strife into Ivalice.
