Their journy was wrought was perils and tribulations that they would not have considered possible but thus is life. Life often throws us curve balls and as the Knights settled they would lose a few to their Cause. Longtime members Greimort, Simeon & Nuala would find their paths veering off from that of the order. Newcomer's Ayame and Bati would disappear before they could get their feet anymore entangled with the hardships that the Knights of Eorzea would surely face out in the wilds of the Peaks and Fringes. The Knights once again found themselves entangled in the affairs of the Oracles, this time being haunted by a female named Mura. Also they'd be decieved by an ally they had thought they had. A brother to Bard Arkwright, Skjall would betray the Order taking Carmen in custody while Bard nearly would lose his life. In the short scheme of things Ala Mhigo would test the mettle of this Order.. and thankfully they could gain leverage over the Oracle and win their fight there only to still be without Carmen in the end. It was also discovered that Mura was a being that had possessed the body of a girl named Sayumi, and this Sayumi was married to a man named Hideo Nizuma. At Sayumi's death she came forth expelling Mura's spirit only to say goodbye to Hideo and give a gift to the Order of Knights in hopes of aidding them well after she was gone. This Gift, A small blue crystal tied to a chord of gold. Skjall was still out there, Carmen still a hostage, but the Knights gained a Victory even though there had been costs along the way.

It was Chapter Five they learned a great deal about the Oracles which can be found in our Organization's Section of our Library.

Sacrifices they had captured during their time in the Ala Mhigan Territories.
Chapter VI Part I & II: Chasing the Comets Tail.
Here the Knights Split their numbers for the Night, One group went to the Comet's Tail (A Cave in the Fringes) and the other went to meet up with a man by the name of Skjall.

Chapter VII: Hideo's Broken Heart.
The Finale of this Book, The Knights tried one last time to save Ala Mhigan Captives that had been taken by the Oracle (Mura). Here they'd discover the Captives were freed by a man named Hideo and a final confrontation occured between the Knights and this Oracle. Here the Oracle would lose, though she did accomplish her mission of obtaining a massive quantity of Aether using a Black Pearl she had during Chapter Four and Chapter VI. Here the group learned that Mura was actually the being possing the body of a girl named Sayumi. Sayumi would die but in her last breaths would give Hideo an item to give the Knights.
