The Grand Cathedral is a location in the center of Leá Monde in Vagrant Story. It is an imposing structure built over the Temple of Kiltia. Its spires and towers are the highest spots in the evil city, and hold many relics from the Iocus Priesthood. The structure is divided up between four floors and one basement. It can only be reached from the Town Center East. The Grand Cathedral is the final location in the game, home to the Final Boss.
John Hardin takes his captives Callo Merlose and Joshua to the Grand Cathedral to await his leader, Sydney Losstarot's orders. However, his enemies in the Order of the Crimson Blades appear, led by Romeo Guildenstern himself. Guildenstern captures Hardin and forces him to reveal the secret of controlling the Dark powers of Leá Monde. After fooling Hardin into thinking him to be Sydney, Guildenstern learns that the "key" he has been searching for is in fact the Blood-Sin tattoo on Sydney's back. When Sydney appears after disposing of Jan Rosencrantz, Guildenstern attacks. Sydney strikes at Guildenstern's companion, his lover Lady Samantha to give Hardin and his captives a chance to escape. But while they are fleeing, Guildenstern strikes Sydney down.
Riskbreaker Ashley Riot then appears, and spots a badly wounded Sydney. Through weak words, Sydney tells Ashley to defeat Guildenstern and save the world from the Crimson Blade leader's cruel dictatorship. Ashley climbs up to the roof of the Grand Cathedral, in time to see Guildenstern murder Samantha so that the Blood-Sin he cut off Sydney's back will give him ultimate power. The two sides, the hero and the villain then fight a battle to the death, but Ashley proves the victor. With Guildenstern's defeat, Leá Monde begins to fall apart into earthquakes. The entire Cathedral is destroyed.
