StoryEdit

Wooden Signboard
(I don't think this is where I should be going at the moment...)
The following section contains potential story spoilers!

Esmeralda is apparently a member of the Obsidians, as indicated by her interest in Graham Crossford’s notebook and the Obsidian Executives in the dungeon preceding her boss battle.

Esmeralda begins following Tressa due to her possession of Graham Crossford’s notebook. At Grandport, she steals the notebook and takes it back to an unnamed man.

As the two are about to escape through the bazaar, Ali distracts the man while Tressa pursues Esmeralda in the Grandport Sewers. Esmeralda realizes the notebook is of no use to her, supposedly because it was started and finished before Graham Crossford’s involvement with Lyblac. Despite this, she refuses to surrender the notebook to Tressa, resulting in their confrontation.

Upon defeating Esmeralda, Tressa takes the notebook back and leaves her in the sewer.

BattleEdit

Esmeralda will begin the battle with 4 shields, but will increase them by 2 after recovering from a break, for a total of 8 shields. She will also change weaknesses after recovering from each break in the pattern shown above.
