Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

The four Onion Kids fall into the bottom of the Altar Cave when exploring it. There, they are attacked by monsters but are able to defeat them. After ascending some floors, they meet with the Wind Crystal room, but are attacked by the Land Turtle. After defeating it, they are granted the title of Warriors of Light and the Warrior, Monk, White Mage, Black Mage, and the Red Mage jobs.

However, in the DS version, Luneth drops into the cave through a hole and goes through the area alone. He faces the Land Turtle and meets the Wind Crystal, who tells Luneth that he is one of the Warriors of the Light and tells him to search for the other three.

After defeating Djinn, Luneth, Arc, Refia, and Ingus are summoned by the Wind Crystal and granted the title of Warriors of Light, as well as the Warrior, Monk, White Mage, Black Mage, Red Mage, and the Thief jobs.
