~ At Journey's End


Galdera, also known as God of the Accursed Flame was the most powerful of the thirteen gods that created the world of Orsterra. He serves as the true final boss of Octopath Traveler after all 8 protagonists cleared their chapters as well as prerequisite side quests. Long ago, Galdera waged war against the other twelve gods and overwhelmed them, but was sealed away by Aelfric's flame into the Gate of Finis due to his betrayal. Legends, including The Far Reaches of Hell tome and the Ruins of Eld, say he will drown the entire world with a great flood and consume all who live whether it be mortals and Gods alike. His daughter Lyblac sets out on a journey to set him free, which leads all eight protagonists to him.
