              and beat Ida (the mailman running around) in a race three times.
              Once you beat him the third time, he will hand over the Gimmick
              Gear.  Now, go to the Aristocratic Quarter.  In the northwest
              area, there's a tall tower.  Climb it using the Catwalk skill
              and the cat statues in the back.  Inside, give the gear to Gen
