      Sorry, members of Fat Chocobo Free Company, but your fate is sealed. I'm dragging you all with me to do the Crystal Tower even if it's the last thing I do!

      No, it's the ability to change your hair do and whatnot by going to visit him.

      Can't wait to do The Minstrel's Ballad: Ultima's Bane, that fight was awesome in story, even though it was easy - can't wait to do it as a hard mode.
