- Find the missing children
- Defeat the two Phantoms
Starting Location: Missing Children
Find the missing children
Another round of Children Search awaits. Maybe the teacher should spend less time ‘working’ as a Honeybee and more caring after her orphans. Anyway, head northeast of the Sector 5 Slums to the Slum Public Cemetery. Here, you’ll find Oates, he is the only Child you need to locate in this quest. You already visited this place in Side Quest “Angel of the Slums” in Chapter 8.
Defeat the two Phantoms
After talking with Oates, you’ll automatically be in a battle with two Phantoms, who are slightly stronger variants of the Ghosts you fought in Chapter 11. They’ll go down easily with Fire magic and physical attacks. Try and learn the ‘Spirit Siphon’ Enemy Skill from them by having the Enemy Skill Materia equipped and letting them use their attacks against you. It’s one of the four enemy skills you must learn for Master of Mimicry trophy (the required ‘Enemy Skill Materia’ was from doing Chadley’s Battle Intel Reports).
After you win, you automatically get a scene and the kids give you the Time Materia and restore your HP/MP.
This finishes Missing Children side quest in Final Fantasy VII Remake.
