At Opassa Beach, if you try to use the Astral Amulet, the dimensional gate won’t open. Sprigg suggests talking to Serge’s mother. Leave here and go to Arni Village.

For those of you in New Game+, you can obtain ending #7 by defeating the final boss now. You can do this up until you go to rescue Riddel at Viper Manor.

Our Party: Lynx (Black), Sprigg (Green), Harle (Black)
Recruitable Characters: Radius (Green)
Bosses: Radius (Green)

Go to Serge’s house and talk to Marge, where you’ll learn some history about Serge’s father Wazuki, and Leena’s father Miguel. Afterward, Radius will come in and wonder if you’re the ones the villagers were talking about. He’ll see that you’re Lynx and will attack you.

Boss: Radius

Spoils: Summon Star #22, 8G, Heal

Payback, hehe. Just use your best attacks and elements.

After defeating him, he’ll realize that you’re not the real Lynx, and will join your party.

Radius suggests going to Termina to gather news. Leave Arni and head to Fossil Valley.
