Misc Side Quests

Nero Family Side Quest

At the beginning of Disc 4, you can begin a side quest that will carry along as you make the trek through the final story dungeon. To begin this side quest, visit Lindblum and head to the Theater District, where a scene will take place in front of Tantalus' hideout. Two of the Nero brothers will mention that some of the crew is missing, then run off in search of them. After viewing this scene, you can head to the final dungeon. The catch is that as you complete certain events in the final dungeon, you can return to Lindblum to view another scene.
