*You, Kara, Mritha, and Niki are still standing on the battlefield.*
Mritha: We can't stay here. The Dragons will be back and we will be vulnerable.
Niki: You must find another place to settle.
Mritha: I will send Stojkaja and a flight to seek out a place to go and rebuild.
<Character>: Good luck Mritha.
Kara SuLema: Let us meet back here in in, say two weeks? I will hopefully have some information for you.If not I will send word to meet at another time.
Mritha: Thank you, all of you. We owe you so much.
Mritha: But for now, I must return to the Dravir and Dragons who have declared their alliance with us to tend to the wounded.
<Character>: Until I see you next time, take care and be careful.
*Mritha leaves the scene.*
Kara SuLema: Niki, I need you to take <Character> back to the Clawkin settlements and assess damages and who may be missing.
Niki: Of course, Kara. Come, <Character>. We have much to do.
*After some time, you and Niki enter a burnt-to-the-ground section of the woods.*
Niki: This is the fourth one. I don't know how much more I can take of this.
<Character>: Niki, it could have been worse.
Niki: Worse? We have seen four settlements, completely destroyed. There are some missing.
Niki: They have no homes, no places of trade or fields to grow food. Families are torn... do you hear something?
Invite Niki as a guest (DA Required) - loads Niki as Guest A.
*You fight your way through various Rose soldiers as you rescue three Clawkin from their tree houses nearby.*
Niki: And now they are traps for anyone trying to return!
<Character>: Niki, we won! We should be happy!
Niki: How can I be?!?
Bajacu': Argument does not solve.
*Bajacu' enters the scene.*
Niki: Bajacu'! Why are you here?
Bajacu': Same reason as Niki and Hero. Accounting of deeds.
<Character>: Help me tell Niki that the victory is worthy of celebrating. She will not listen.
Niki: There was still loss and destruction. How is that something to celebrate?
Bajacu': Both hearts are correct. War hurts and none truly win. But, there is victory when the ones at fault are overcome.
Bajacu': I show what could have been.
*Bajacu's eyes glow; scene fades to black, then back in with a hazy green filter; The Rose leave the Freedom Camp with chained and caged Clawkin; one of the caged Clawkin looks back through teary eyes; the vision fades.*
Bajacu': Yes, won you did. But, lost also. Niki, you protect, but you are not all powerful.
Bajacu': What you see... could have been. A loss would hurt much. Keep that in mind.
Niki: Oh, Bajacu', but it hurts to lose what we have.
<Character>: Have faith, Niki. We will not stop until everyone is back where they belong. But we need you to be strong.
Niki: I will be...

Quick! Lets get out of here!
You've cleared this tree, lets get out of here
