He finds himself forced to join the Band Of The Hawk which is a mercenary group led by Griffith. Even though Griffith wishes to role his own kingdom, the group is hired to assist Midland in its ongoing war campaign against the Chuder Empire.
However, during a battle at Doldrey, the opposing side takes Griffith alive. Eventually, the Band sets out on a mission to rescue him. Finally, the Memorial Edition brings together everything from the start of the series to Griffith’s capture.
