This quest will allow Acolyte Jin to join your party as a hero. This quest and Student Sousuke are mutually exclusive, so once this quest is completed, you won't be able to gain Acolyte Sousuke as a hero until after the completion of the Nightfall campaign.
- Student Sousuke neither active nor completed
- Travel to Zehlon Reach and bond with Acolyte Jin through battle against one of Balthazar's Eternals.
- See Field General Hayao for your reward.
After talking with Field General Hayao after Zaishen Elite in the Plains of Jarin make your way to The Astralarium. Enter Zehlon Reach and proceed south to find Acolyte Jin, Balthazar's Eternal, and two Ghostly Griffons. Defeat the Eternals and report back to Field General Hayao at the Sun Docks.
- 11 (20) Acolyte Jin
Field General Hayao
- "The Zaishen are sworn blades of Balthazar, loyal to the end. You have chosen Jin as your pupil. It is time to show your student what it is to be fierce through actions, not words. Together you must defeat one of Balthazar's Eternals in combat. Only through victory in the face of death will you be forever bonded with your sister in arms. You will find the Eternal in Zehlon Reach."
- Accept: "We'd best not keep Balthazar waiting."
- Decline: "Balthazar, eh? I think I hear my mom calling me...."
- Ask: "Acolyte Jin is in the [sic] Zehlon Reach. She will call forth the Eternal once you arrive."
- Acolyte Jin: "Ready yourself for battle, Sunspear. The Eternals are not to be taken lightly."
- Acolyte Jin: "Excellent battle tactics. I am honored to be trained by one so versed in combat."
Field General Hayao
- "As her trainer, I think it best you knew something about your pupil. Jin is from a small town on the Cantha coast, and is mainly self-taught. Her family was slain by monsters when she was a small girl. As an orphan, she focused her sorrow and rage on vengeance. Even before coming to the Zaishen, she was an effective fighter. She is quiet and taciturn when off the battlefield, methodical and deadly when on. She never backs down from a fight. Good luck, hero. Go with the blessing of Balthazar."
