Rhubarb: Well done <Character>! I don't know how ye did it but Drakath and the wind pearl dropped onto the Red Betty less than an hour ago.
Rhubarb: The Captain has asked to see ye on the ship but.... take care. He has a devilish glow on his eyes. I've never seen such a fierce look on him.
Rhubarb: ...and Captain Blackberry is a man known for his fierce looks.
Cap. Blackberry: Good job, swab. I'm not sure what ya did in that cave but the Wind Pearl dropped Drakath off on the deck of the Red Betty!
Cap. Blackberry: He seems t'be havin' some trouble getting it t'do what he wants. Har har har! He keeps screamin' at it t'do what he says...
Cap. Blackberry: ... but the Wind Pearl won't even let him leave the deck of the ship, it's keeping him on board!
Cap. Blackberry: I told you that I would reward you for bringing the pearl to me, and I will honor my word! As a reward, you may finish Drakath off!
Cap. Blackberry: Have fun, matey!
Drakath: Work, you stupid orb....WORK! I command it! Take me from this place! Why have you brought me here? Why won't you let me leave?
<Character>: Having some trouble, Drakath?
Drakath: Don't... don't come near me <Character>! I... I will use the orb's power again to..
<Character>: Who are you kidding? It looks like you couldn't use the orb's power to open a jar with a stubborn lid.
<Character>: I'm not sure what happened before Drakath, why the orb protected you or why it brought you here, but this is the end of the road.
<Character>: Hand over the orb.
Drakath: NO! The orb knew that I was the rightful king of the land... that HAS to be why it protected me! It did it once and it will do it again...
Drakath: It..it must have brought me here so that I could defeat you in front of all your disgusting pirate friends!
Drakath: Yes, that MUST be it! It will protect me again... Fight me again, <Character>... IF YOU DARE!
After defeating Drakath:
Drakath: NO! Why did the orb not protect me??!
<Character>: I'm not sure why it ever protected you in the first place. Alteon is king of this land, and that is the way it should be.
Drakath: You will pay for this disrespect, <Character>. I unlocked the orb's power once and I'll find a way to do it again!
Cap. Blackberry: I don't think so, you fool.
*Wind Orb rises and goes off screen*
Cap. Blackberry: You are BOTH fools! Now the pearl is mine and I have you both to thank for it. I'm sure you're confused, let me explain how I used you both.
Cap. Blackberry: Even tho Kordana is old and her magic is failing, she is still a dangerous enemy. Far too dangerous for me to risk my own life, for the orb.
Cap. Blackberry: When I leaked the location of the orb to Sepulchure I didn't dream that he'd send a dim bulb like Drakath to retrieve it.
Cap. Blackberry: Tracking him down was easy enough, but in order to activate the orb's power I had to have the one who posessed the orb to face "their greatest foe".
Cap. Blackberry: Once the orb's magic was active, the Wind Orb was summoned here to my ship, and I have to thank you both.
Cap. Blackberry: Now that the orb is here I can complete the spell that I found twenty years ago, in a strange chest floating in the ocean.
Cap. Blackberry: I had the spell woven in the very boards and planks that make up the Red Betty... the ship is a living spell, that will make me a god!
*The Red Betty starts to glow*
Cap. Blackberry: Soon, the spell will transform me into a monster that hasn't been seen in a thousand generations of sailors...
Cap. Blackberry: I will be the ultimate power in the seas when I become the KING BRAKEN!
*Cap. Blackberry transforms into Brakenberry*
Cap. Blackberry: It's working! The spell is working! Soon I will be GOD OF THE SEA, and you two fools have the honor of being my first worshipers...
Cap. Blackberry: ... as well as my first meal when the transformation is complete. HAR HAR HAR!
Drakath: HA! Me? Worship YOU? You look like an accident at a sushi restaurant.
<Character>: So let me get this straight... You used us to get the orb so you could complete a spell that you had written into your ship...
<Character>: ... and now you're becoming a god-powerful sea monster, but you're halfway between the Braken and Captain Blackberry right now?
Cap. Blackberry: That's exactly right.
Drakath: So right now you're... Brakenberry?
<Character>: That sounds like the name of a breakfast cereal.
Cap. Blackberry: Don't start with me... I actually know a pirate named Captain Krunch. Now... BOW TO ME!
<Character>: Bow to yourself, I'm busy. Drakath, this could get serious.
<Character>: If we join forces, just this one time, we might have the power to defeat this monstrosity. What do you say?
Drakath: I say... LET'S DO IT! I will fight by your side, <Character>!
Drakath: HAHAHA! No! Have fun with squidward, sucker!
<Character>: That guys is such a jerk.
Cap. Blackberry: Only you and me now, hero. Are you going to bow to me or am I going to have to destroy you?
<Character>: You're not a god yet Brakenberry, you freak. Let's see what kind of power you have.
Cap. Blackberry: That was a mistake <Character>. Prepare to pay the ultimate price.
After defeating Brakenberry:
Rhubarb: Ye've done well <Character>. Ye make me proud to be a pirate! Ye defeated that madman Brakenberry, and saved our whole way of life.
Rhubarb: The Red Betty needs a new captain. I suppose the job falls to me. I always loved that ship more than Captain Blackberry ever could.
Rhubarb: The good captain was even kind enough to leave a spare hat and coat in his quarters on the ship. I'll go get those now.
A Few Minutes Later...
Rhubarb: What do ye thaink, matey? I guess that I'm Captain Rhubarb now... I like the way that sounds!
Rhubarb: As for the Wind Pearl... Well, it's just too dangerous to be left in our hands, and we can't have it falling into the ninjas hands either...
Rhubarb: I think I'll be taking it back to the Ruins of Kordana.
Rhubarb: If what ye said is true then she could use it to power herselfand she could keep it safer than any of us could.
Rhubarb: Osprey Cove and all the pirates here owe ye a huge debt of gratitude <Character>. You are always welcome here...
Rhubarb: ... and should ye ever need our help, just send for us. Pirates always help their own.
