This is the article page for the July and Imperial Soldier miscellaneous quest of the game Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age (FFXII, FF12, FF XII Zodiac Age). Item locations, tasks that need doing, and other important aspects of the side mission are available here.
July, the Imperial Streetear
At the outskirts of the Nalbina Fortress, a scene will occur where two Imperials are arguing with each other. A streetear from the streets of Old Archadia will enter the scene–July. This sidequest will give you the ever-important Salamand Halcyon bazaar item.
Note: This sidequest becomes available after clearing the Tomb of Raithwall and before proceeding to Mt. Bur-Omisace.
Gibbs and Deweg, Imperial Guardsmen
|1||From the mount, teleport to Nalbina through the orange save crystal.|
|2||Upon arriving, you’ll enter a cutscene where two Imperial guards are arguing with each other.|
There are two Imperial guardsmen in Nalbina that are important players in this quest. If you’re an avid fan of the Final Fantasy series, the names Gibbs and Deweg will seem familiar–that’s because they are anagrams of the names of recurring FF characters Biggs and Wedge.
|3||A girl, July, will be seen intently listening to their argument. Speaking to her will trigger the response «I’m busy».|
|4||Walk over to Gurdy and rent a chocobo. When you move back to the two Imperials, one of them will leave his post. The other will take off after him.|
|5||July will head back to Archades, saying that her job in Nalbina Fortress is done.|
The cutscene will move to where July, a seemingly harmless Nalbina resident, is listening to the two argue to their hearts’ content. When you talk with her, she will reply that she’s ‘busy’.
July’s Mission Accomplished
|6||After gaining passage to Archades, move to Charlotte’s Magickery to see a familiar face.|
|7||July will remember you from her Nalbina spying days, and will relay the fate of the poor Imperial guardsman.|
|8||She’ll thank you for your part in the quest with items, along with an important bazaar item, the Salamand Halcyon.|
Later on, when your party gains access to Archades, visit Charlotte’s Magickery. You’ll be seeing July there, and when you talk to her, she will remember you from Nalbina. She’ll tell you about the fate of the Imperial Gibbs, as well as give you an important item as a reward.
