This is the 5th main quest, and has to be initiated by Lightning herself - by interacting with the person inside the fallen airship to the North of Wildlands. This area cannot be accessed until the Holy Chocobo is healed to the extent that it can glide.

The quest will require fetching a total of 5 items - 5 soul fragments

1. the first fragment is in a treasure sphere just outside the airship (the game prompts you to get it)

2. the second fragment is obtained by completing a Canvas of Prayers quest (the required item is in a treasuere sphere, on the South-West giant bridge in Wildlands. The bridge needs not be opened for this sphere to spawn)

3. the third fragment is obtained from any soul seed merchant (the required trading item is in a treasure sphere in Moggle's Village)

4. the fourth fragment is obtained by defeating the rare enemy, Cactair, in Dead Dunes (this enemy is shielded by a sandstorm, which can only be destroyed by having a Pilgrim's Crux and interacting it with the monument nearby. Cactair is a very resistant enemy that all damage towards it is only 1 point, so that multi-hit attacks, especially EP ability Army of One, are more useful than strong one-hit attacks)

5. the fifth fragment is obtained by winning a fight in the Yusnaan Arena (the opponent is Zaltys, the prologue tutorial boss. Note that the Arena only opens during night time)

Once all five fragments are collected, return to the airship and talk to the quest giver. After the cut-scene, the achievement will unlock along with the completion of the quest.
