Supposedly built and operated within the dark ages, the quarry lies abandoned in the present day. Entry is kept by two colossal stone stones, flanked on either side by two large statues of armor clad warriors. Within the quarry lie narrow passageways and dark tunnels with a gloomy atmosphere described as heavy, with several cocoon like structures and an eerie purple glow. The Higher elements are active within the mine.
Local legends speak of an evil djinn sealed within the quarry, which turns out to be Ginosha-Zarak, a spider like spirit of immense proportions.
Thors Military Academy Class VII Group A visit the Ancient Quarry in their investigation to jaegar activity in Nord. They track the jaegars into the depth of the mine, where they meet Michael Gideon who introduces himself and unleashes the djinn selfed within the quarry through the use of his artefact, the Demonic Flute. Gideon uses the chaos caused by the creature's appearance to stage his escape, not caring when the creature devours the jaegar corps he employed. Class VII step in to save them and vanquish the creature.
Rean returns to the Nord Highlands and passes the Quarry, noting a tent with no apparent inhabitant. It later turns out to be Clara who will only join up with the Third Way's efforts if they retrieve some stone from within the quarry. Clara also later discovers ancient murals which instruct her on the making of Ex-orbs for Valimar. Within the quarry they face the Ginosha-Zarak once again.
