After the battle with Issachar, you'll get 15,000 Macca for winning. After, you will head to Camp Ichigaya to watch Walter's martyrdom. Anyways, you will progress out of Ichigaya and, as you go, you'll end up finding Isabeau.

Boss: Isabeau, Jeanne dArc, Pallas Athena, Valkyrie


**Level** **Race** **Weakness** **Resistance** **Nullifies**
71 Human N/A N/A Dark, Light

Jeanne d'Arc

**Level** **Race** **Weakness** **Resistance** **Nullifies**
70 Femme Fire Ice, Force, Electric Light, Dark

Pallas Athena

**Level** **Race** **Weakness** **Resistance** **Nullifies**
70 Megami Dark Physical Light, Gun (Repel)


**Level** **Race** **Weakness** **Resistance** **Nullifies**
70 Yoma Electric Light, Dark, Physical N/A

This fight is difficult, although none of the four have anything new. Still, four moves per turn will wear you down, so quickly killing everyone is a top priority. Elementally, if you want to hit the party, Fire is your best bet since no one resists it - moves like Maragiodyne are going hit hard against this party to a point.

Alternatively, you could try moves like Titanomachia and hope for the critical, which would surpass Maragiodyne pretty well. If you can't go the party-wide route, then it's best to focus on particular enemies. Valkyrie is the weakest of the gang, so zap her a few times to get rid of that one move per turn.

Jeanne d'Arc should be next by burning her at the stake. Athena and Isabeau are going to be a bit tougher. You probably should just focus your best moves on them, or party-wide moves like Titanomachia. Tetrakarn and Attack Mirrors may help, since I saw a fair few Physical attacks flying around.

During the fight, Isabeau will ask two questions. To them, use the second and second choices respectively for a bit more help.

The Eastern Kingdom of Mikado is a peaceful land whose inhabitants are rigidly divided into two castes: the common Casualry and the elite Luxurors. Normally, it is impossible to transcend the class you were born into; that is, unless you are chosen at the age of eighteen by "the Gauntlet Rite" to become a Samurai, one of the sworn protectors of Mikado. You are chosen to become a Samurai, and learn a truth kept hidden from the general population: that beneath Mikado lies Naruku, a realm of demons which the Samurai are tasked with suppressing.
