*In Croft, you and your dragon meet with Trouble and Toil outside of ScaredCrow's Barber Shop.*
Trouble: Ah! Welcome, <Character>!
<Character>: Hey Trouble, Toil! What's up?
Toil: Everything is going remarkably well! No big problems showed up and the candy preparations are going smoothly!
<Character>: That's great to hear! It looks like this year will be a quiet one!
Bubble: There's, uh... trouble!
Toil: We were SO close to a quiet year!
<Character>: What's the matter?
Bubble: Apparently there's a monster on the loose in the sewers near some of the more popular trick or treat spots!
<Character>: That's really not that out of the ordinary, I've been in sewers and wells a LOT during my career...
<Character>: Ahem... continue.
Bubble: This monster apparently lures children and feeds off of them!
Bubble: The people are too afraid to get out of the house! They're refering to the monster as "That".
<Character>: Now THAT's problematic! I can check it out if you want!
Trouble: Please do. We don't want to lose potential customers!
Trouble: Ehe, I mean... those poor children!
<Character>: I'll go check it out!
*You enter the nearby sewers and fight your way through various sewer creatures; eventually you unlock another sewer grate and find That, battling and defeating it.*
That: Ok! OK! I give up!
<Character>: You better!
That: *Grumbles* First the creepy girl, now you?!
<Character>: Creepy girl? What do you mean?
That: I was hungry, so I was trying to feed off of people's fears, but I came across this creepy little girl...
<Character>: You... eat fear?
That: Yes. But this girl... there was something rotten about her. When I scanned her for her fears, I... I SAW things. Horrible, terrifying things!
<Character> (thinking): Could it be Sally?
That: She was FEARLESS and what's worse, she GIGGLED and told me she wanted to keep me!
<Character> (thinking): Definitely Sally.
That: I ran as fast as I could and hid in the sewers, it wasn't long before those undead and creepy dolls followed me in!
That: So... thanks for beating those, I guess.
<Character>: No problem...?
<Character>: But tell me: Why feed on fear?
That: Eating fear is quite normal where I'm from.
That: However, my way of eating is slightly different. I don't like the candy part, so I found a way to only consume that delicious fear.
*You pause to process That's background, which sounds suspiciously similar to the Cauldron Sisters' and the Baleful Brothers'.*
<Character>: Eating fear... "candy" part...
<Character>: Wait... are you from Apsaydaaun?
That (dancing): YES!
That: Oh, by the Glutonus, you have no idea how long have I been trapped in this plane, unable to breathe the fresh air of my Apsaydaaunian home!
<Character>: I might be able to help you, then! Come with me, we'll check with my friends.
That: Right behind you!
*You, your dragon, and That return to Croft.*
Trouble: Welcome back, <Character>!
Toil: Who's that beside you?
<Character>: This is that "monster on the loose in the sewers near some of the more popular trick or treat spots" you told me to take care of!
<Character>: And so I did!
<Character>: That's "That"!
*After greeting each other, the Cauldron Sisters suspect they recognise who That really is.*
Bubble: Wait... isn't that Kosong?
Trouble: I think it is!
Toil: What happened to you?! You disappeared years ago!
Kosong: I honestly don't know... one day I went for a stroll, fell asleep... and woke up here, in this abysmal place.
<Character>: Will you be able to take him back to Apsaydaaun?
Trouble: Absolutely! He can come with us after Mogloween is over!
Kosong: I... I can finally go home?!
Bubble: Yes you can! But for now, you'll have to help us out with trick or treating preparations!
<Character>: Happy Mogloween!
Everyone: Happy Mogloween, <Character>!
*Scene fades to black.*

This sewer grate is locked tight. There must be a way to open it!
Go ahead, take a bubblegum!
You pull the cord! You hear a clanking sound from somewhere in the sewers...
You pull the cord again. For fun, because nothing happens.
The chest comes alive! It's a mimic!
You found a stash of potions! You decide to take some!
