Supported by many of her students, Quistis is an active SeeD and one of the instructors of Balamb Garden. After being deprived of her position as instructor because of certain circumstances, she proceeds to accompany Squall who has been commanded to assassinate a sorceress.

Due to her suddenly appearition on a mysterious volcano, Quistis starts remembering the start of his journey with Squall and the siege of Dollet. After a while, she remarks to herself that "this isn't the time to be reminiscing" and tries to locate all of her friends until a recon squad of "warriors of Materia", composed by Laguna and Y'shtola among others, encounter her.

Quistis recognizes Laguna from the events of her world, but deduces she probably is on the dream world due to his clothes, however she denies this when she admits that her appearance is still the same and has not been altered. What really unnerves her are the presence of an armored knight, and two human-like beings with cat ears and tails. The reunion with a confused Laguna that doesn't remember her gets interrupted because of the attack of several monsters and a Behemoth that surprises the group.

After the fight, Quistis starts talking with the warriors until Zell and Squall arrive, something that makes Quistis rejoice.

Y'shtola gets curious about this and Zell explains all about Quistis to her then Squall says that he is glad to see that her is alright, something that surprises her. Galuf and Steiner comment that he "may not show it, but he cares about the people of his same world". Although this makes Squall uncomfortable. The heroes start explaining the situation of the world to Quistis, this makes her wonder about the rest of her friends. Squall tries to reassure her by admiting that not everyone has appeared yet but that doesn't mean that they are going to be summoned too and returns to his old "persona". Quistis mocks him, gaining the favor of the warriors of Light, but this makes Squall leave. Y'shtola, Steiner and Galuf welcome her to the group.

While the party continue talking, Quistis is informed about the presence of Seifer and the members of the Disciplinary Committee in the world as well. This makes Quistis curious and, after hearing more details of the party's encounter with him, distresses her a bit, admiting that Seifer had his flaws on his original world, but express her interest in supporting him and his posse if he doesn't do anything evil.[1]
