The series' most beloved Black Mage, Vivi, is both powerful and pure of heart. Unfortunately, he has a knack for getting mixed up in the wrong place at the wrong time. Follow his story as he travels throughout Gaia to discover the world with his companions and to ponder his purpose in life.
For all his loudmouth bluster, Steiner begins as a lowly, incompetent captain of the guard whose sole charge was to protect and serve the royal family. He cannot bear it when a common thief and his band plot to kidnap the princess of Alexandria. He is about to receive the shock of his life when his charge begs to leave the kingdom, setting in motion events that will make him question the meaning of duty.
When the young black mage and the knight meet, Steiner falls to his knees in reverence of Vivi's great power. Both, however, have but scratched the surface in regard to the plot brewing before them.
"Limited Time" was the main theme for this event.
