Murmur will first appear in Tsukiji Konganji on orders to retrieve Flynn from Lucifer so that Flynn can become the messiah for the demons. When the party refuses, he opts just to kill everyone and take Flynn by force.
Murmur can later be found within Camp Ichigaya. He can teach Nanashi the Madness Nails, Mudoon and Maziodyne skills through his Demon Whisper. He benefits from learning Electricity, Darkness, Physical and Force skills.
Murmur is fought at Harajuku Shelter. After effortlessly defeating the party with powerful spells in a scripted event, Yuka Tachibana gets devoured by demons and a poisonous gas is released. He is fought as a boss later in the game.
