    1. Speak to the servants.
      • There will be some servants roving around. Speak to them before trying to head upstairs.
      • When you try to go upstairs, there’s a guard that will block your way.
    2. Talk to the nearby servant.
      • The nearby servant will trigger a mini-game of sorts. Your job is to call the guard over and slip past him.
      • After slipping past the first guard, you’ll have to do the same with two other guards. Move them to one side and sneak past.
        • If you get spotted, you’ll be sent back to the beginning. Be careful.
      • There are other guards, but they won’t bother you if you don’t approach them.
    3. Find the Lion Seal
      • A cutscene will play once you find it.
      • There will be a light glowing from the wall. Examine it to open a secret passageway.
      • Head down the hallway until you reach a locked door. Since it’s locked, check the switch behind the wall.
      • The path behind the dorr will lead to your two new party members: Balthier and Fran. Vaan will also take some random treasure: the Goddess Magic Stone.
      • After that, run.
      • Run up the stairs for another event once the chaos subsides. There, you’ll run back to Gramsythe Waterway with Balthier and Fran.
