In order to begin this side story, the following conditions must be met:
- All eight travelers' stories must be completed
- The following side stories must be completed:
Approximately 1,600 years prior to the events of Octopath Traveler, the thirteenth God of Orsterra, Galdera, betrayed the other twelve Gods in his desire to be all-powerful. The other twelve united in a fierce battle against Galdera, and eventually Aelfric was able to weaken the Life and Death God enough to seal him away behind the Gate of Finis.
However, Galdera had created a daughter, Lyblac, a powerful demi-goddess, to ensure his revival. Many of the current events in the game's story can be traced back to Lyblac and her machinations in secrecy to release Galdera from his prison behind the Gate of Finis, which is located at the bottom of the Ruins of Hornburg. The kingdom was laid to waste by the actions of Werner, at the request of Lyblac. The party initially finds both Lyblac and Kit getting ready to enter the Gate. Lyblac had told Kit that he could bring his deceased father Graham back to life at the Gate, but it was a lie and Lyblac's true intentions were to use Kit as a host for her father, Galdera.
Note that you cannot leave the Gate of Finis once you go in, so be fully prepared before you enter. There also are no save points inside.
Eight bosses must be defeated before proceeding to the final battle against Galdera at Journey's End. Each boss will leave behind a journal that can be read once defeated.
