Tomix: We're headed to the Market District this time, <Character>! I'm almost certain that's where the Ember Key is hidden.
<Character>: Oh, good. I needed to pick up some groceries anyways.
*Invites Tomix as Guest A.*
Greed: Howwwwww can I get into that Gate?! It's locked. Locked, locked, locked!
Greed: I suppose I WILL need to wait on that errant SoulWeaver and that, that meddling <Class> to do my work for me.
Greed: Hsssss. They can't see me, oh no no no. That would ruin everything.
Greed: I just need to wait until they get all the keys in the Gate, and then rush in ahead of them.
Greed: But... perhaps they aren't my ONLY option. There are all those lovely ChaosWeavers.
Greed: So dark, so hungry for conquest. Beautifully greedy monsters. Yeeeeees, I should see what use they can be to me.
*A purple elemental spirit appears in front of him and Greed flees.*
Approaching a statue to the left of the starting point, a pop-up headline will say:
"In memory of Vaal."
Another pop-up headline appears later in the quest:
"The market is CLOSED. Get out!"
Aspar: It is good to see you, my friend. Very good indeed. I have been worried. And I found this... key. I thought you might want it.
Tomix: Awww, you know I can take care of myself, Aspar. I've come this far without help.
Tomix: Well, with not a LOT of help. Thanks for finding that Key.
Tomix: And now I even have <Character>! What could go wrong?
<Character>: Tomix? ... Who is this?
Tomix: Who is this? This is ASPAR! He saved my life. He's the elemental Spirit of Kindness.
Tomix: And he is my closest friend, my SoulAlly. Without him, I would be lost. Nothing.
<Character>: Then it is a pleasure to meet you, Aspar.
Aspar: I am sure we will grow to be close friends, as well.
<Character>: So, how did you and Tomix meet?
Aspar: That's a, well, I wouldn't call it a FUNNY story, exactly.
Tomix: It is a FOOLISH story.
<Character>: Ooh, storytime! Anyone have popcorn? I could use a snack while I listen.
Tomix: It was at Edelia, the School of SoulWeaving. And I had accepted a very stupid challenge.
Aspar: From a boy who wanted only to harm you.
Aspar: But he is buried in obscurity now, and no one will remember his name. He is dead to history, while you...
Aspar: You will be remembered. He may have issued the challenge which cost you so much, but ultimately, you won. And I am with you.
Tomix: I accepted a challenge to weave a coat using the Headmaster's SpiritLooms. He had trapped seven Corrupted Elemental Spirits in them.
Aspar: I heard rumors of the fight, and was drawn to them. I had been watching you grow for a long time.
Tomix: You had?
Aspar: You were- ARE- destined to be great. I am attracted to greatness, drawn to it.
<Character>: So what happened with the challenge?!
Aspar: He used a forbidden incantation, and it consumed him.
Aspar: His face turned pale, and his hair changed from a deep crimson to the silver you see now. And his eyes... they WERE blue. Now, they are not.
Tomix: The spirits I tried to weave were stealing the life energy from me. But Aspar saved me.
Aspar: I will always try to be there to save you, Tomix. I will be around here, nearby if you need me.
One of Secundus's soul threads is found at a stall where a Sneevmole is peeking out of before it ducks down. When you first enter the Market District, walk to your right to find that specific stall.
