Upon approaching Captain Blackberry:
Cap. Blackberry: Ahoy there matey, Welcome aboard the Red Betty, the most feared pirate ship in the eight known seas of Lore!
Cap. Blackberry: Remember to keep yer hands and arms inside the craft at all times...OR I'll gut ye with me hook and feed yer giblets to the sharks!
Cap. Blackberry: I may not keep my word often but I've never made a threat that I wasn't willing to keep, so now ye understand how things work on me ship.
Cap. Blackberry: People do what I say or they walk the plank. But IF you do what I say, then you get your share of of the booty that this vessel takes on board...
Cap. Blackberry: ... after I get my cut o'course. It's as simple as that.
Cap. Blackberry: Rhubarb says that yer pretty suave fer a landlubber... that ye get what needs doin', done.
Cap. Blackberry: He may be an honor-bound idiot but he has a good eye for talent...the eye that I didn't take from him.
Cap. Blackberry: That was the last time that he will let the ship's cook overcook my steak, by Triton! Har Har Har!
Cap. Blackberry: Rhubarb has told me that you've gotten closer to capturing the Wind Pearl than any pirate so far.
Cap. Blackberry: He explained that this Drakath guy took the Wind Pearl out from under yer nose!
Cap. Blackberry: I don't allow failure on this ship but considering yer performance so far I'm giving you a chance to redeem yerself, swab!
Cap. Blackberry: I've tracked Drakath to a cave on the southern tip of the island... you'll have to take the UNDERWATER path to get to him quickly.
Cap. Blackberry: I guess ye get to test the quality of those Underwater Breathing Potions the ninjas flooded the sea with! Har Har Har!
Cap. Blackberry: I've a dinghy ready to take you to the cave's underwater entrance which should lead ye to Drakath.
Cap. Blackberry: I understand that ye have some history with this bilge rat. Kill him if it pleases ye, but bring me that Wind Pearl back.
Cap. Blackberry: I went through too much trouble tracking it down to Sho Nuff island...
Cap. Blackberry: and keeping it's location hidden from those poxy monks in the Temple of the Four Winds.
Cap. Blackberry: Their prophecies say that the Wind Pearl will only be safe when it is returned to their temple but I'll take good care of it. Har Har Har!
Cap. Blackberry: They know nothing of the power that combining the Wild Pearl with the spell written on ... but I'm saying too much.
Cap. Blackberry: Just know this <Character>... get me that Wind Pearl back and you will replace Rhubarb as my number one...
Cap. Blackberry: ...you will earn your share of that power! Get Moving!
Aye Aye - continues the quest.
Heal - fully replenishes HP, MP, and potions.
*From Captain Blackberry's ship, you move your dinghy to a cave where Drakath and the Wind Orb are hiding.*
Upon entering underwater:
<Character>: Wow, It actually works! I can breathe just fine.
Galeocerda 1: Another land-creature is invading our sanctum!
Galeocerda 2: Haha! They only have one row of teeth! These things are no threat!
Galeocerda 1: Remember, they have other natural defenses! Stay clear of the warm patches of the water!
*You fight through Galeocerdas as you search for Drakath and the Wind Orb; eventually, you found them.*
<Character>: There you are, and with no friends this time. You'll be easy.
Drakath: <Character>. I heard that you were on Sho Nuff Island. Why do you have to be everywhere that I am?
<Character>: I'm the hero of the story. It's my job.
<Character>: Since we both know that I'm just going to beat you senseless, why not just hand over that Wind Orb and make it easy on yourself?
Drakath: You dare speak that way to me!? YOU SHOULD BE BOWING TO ME!
<Character>: I don't really see that happening any time soon. This is your last chance, Drakath... the Wind Orb...Now.
Drakath: There is nothing that you could do to me that is worse then the price for failing Sepulchure.
Drakath: Besides, I would never give it to Captain Blackberry's stooge. If you want the orb, dog...
Drakath: ... then come and fetch it.
Battle! - begins battle with Drakath.
*You kneel after being defeated by Drakath.*
<Character>: Drakath...what did you...?
Drakath: I... I did nothing... the Wind Orb... Such power...
<Character>: That was... Dragon Magic.
Drakath: HAHAHA! The orb must know that I am the rightful king of this land! It responds to it's master's desires!
Drakath: With this power, you're no match for me! No one is! HAHAHA! I FINALLY BEAT YOU!
Drakath: MAN! That felt so good! Look! Look! My hands are even shaking a little!
Drakath: Now... to FINISH you with the orb's power!
*As the Wind Orb prepares to finish you, it instead casts a tornado on Drakath, floating him into the air.*
Drakath: What? No. NO! Orb, obey your master! Stop this! Finish <Character>!
*Drakath and the Wind Orb floats into the air, leaving only you behind.*
<Character>: I can't let Drakath keep that orb, or worse, give it to Sepulchure...
The battle against Drakath was not intended to be defeated; losing against him will progress the quest as normal.
