Phantom was famous among wealthy merchant and nobleman. People call him Phantom because they do not know who he was as he left the stolen place without anyone noticing him but only traces he deliberately placed there. When Phantom attempted to steal Ereve’s great treasure, the Skaia, he had fallen in love with Aria, the Empress of Ereve before Cygnus. Instead of stealing from her, he asked for it. Aria found it amusing but declined his request. The two developed a burgeoning friendship that became more romantic by the day.

Before their romance deepen, Aria was killed by Black Mage envoy commanded by General Orchid. Shinsoo (a white giant bird who accompanies Aria) gave Skaia to Phantom so he can protect it. Phantom looked for Feud for an invitation to join Heroes to fight against Black Mage and to seek revenge for his beloved Aria. After a fierce battle, he and 4 other heroes were trapped in ice and put into a deep sleep by Black Mage. Freud was unlucky as he died in battle.

A century later, Phantom awakens from the curse by the help of Aria’s Blessing. He infiltrates Ereve where a meeting is being held. Hilla, commander of Black Wings poses as Empress by displaying Skaia (jewel said to glow in hands of Empress) but does not glow in Cygnus’s hands. Cygnus is the new empress of present-day Maple World and is Aria’s niece (she had no children to pass it on to). Phantom explained to the audience that the one held by Hilla was a fake and destroyed it, and showed the real Skaia was in his hands. Hilla quickly fled from Ereve after he debunked the fake Skaia. Phantom goes up to Cygnus to give her the Skaia, and when he looks at her, he’s reminded of Aria. “You’re beautiful when you smile.” he said to her before returning to his Crystal Garden (flying ship).
