Galanoth joins you as Guest A.
East of Falconreach...
Chaz: Yulgar, we have another group coming back from the front lines...
Chaz: They're going to need equipment and repairs.
Yulgar: That's what I'm here for, friend.
Yulgar: How are they holding up?
Chaz: We're still losing ground.
Chaz: Honestly, I don't know how long we can keep this up...
Ando: THEY'RE ATTACKING!!!
Chaz: The fire monsters have broken our defenses! Come on!
Meanwhile, back in Falconreach..
<Character>: The horses are packed, we need to get going.
Reens: Right. We're all set.
Galanoth: Wait, where is Demento?
*Demento is back in Yulgar's Forge, where he finds a curious piece of red metal; part of Drakonnan's armor.*
Galanoth: Brother, we must depart quickly.
Demento: I'll catch up with you.
Galanoth: What's wrong? I know that look.
Demento: Hmph, you know me too well.
Demento: I just.. have something I need to do.
Galanoth: I trust your judgement.
Demento: I'll make haste.. I'm looking forward to fighting beside you again.
Galanoth: Me too.
Galanoth: Alright, let's go! We ride East!
Galanoth: Be safe, brother.
Demento: As should you.
*Many heroes head eastwards on their horses and carriages; Aria can be seen hidden amongst a carriage of straw.*
Twilly: I sure hope this was a good idea, Aria...
Aria: Oh, come on. It'll be fun!
*Meanwhile, Demento returns to Yulgar's Forge to see if he can uncover what happened to Konnan.*
Demento: The apprentice, was he kidnapped...
Demento: Did he just run...
Demento: He was crafting something, these scraps of red metal...
Demento: What happened to you, Konnan? I know you were grieving but...
Demento: Something tells me you've turned to anger....
*At the battleground where Akriloth was defeated, Demento studies some of the fire monsters' armor.*
Demento: Not all of these monsters were minions of Akriloth!
Demento: I'll have to look for Konnan later, right now it looks like another is making a play for the plane of fire.
*A nearby fire axe can be seen stamped with a 'Xan Brand' logo. Meanwhile, at Xan's Fortress, his plans are in motion...*
Xan: Finally I have the tool to rid the world of Warlic and all his troublesome friends. He won't be able to keep me from Jaania any longer.
Xan: REVENGE WILL BE MINE AT LAST! HAHAHAHAHAHA!
Xan: Who knew that naive little Konnan would turn into such a wonderful apprentice.
Xan: It was well worth the promises of teaching him to enchant weapons with fire so long ago...
Xan: Now to plan my revenge against the Blue Mage...
Xan: YES, I HAVE IT!!! I'll--
Xan: No, that is too boring. I need to kill him... creatively.
Xan: Like, with fire.
Xan: A LOT of fire.
Xan: What did I tell you about bothering me when I'm on my throne?
Drakonnan: They're leaving, packing up and going east!
Drakonnan: We have to move now, I can't let them escape before I get my hands on them!
Xan: What?! Who heads east, Drakonnan? Is the Mage among them?
Drakonnan: Warlic stays... for now. I want <Character> though.
Drakonnan: I will burn the very breath from his lungs for leaving my family in the path of that dragon.
Drakonnan: They cannot escape! Not after I've gained the power to defeat them!
Xan: Wait, my young friend, I do not think you realize how powerful the mage is, he should be our first target.
Xan: <Character> can wait.
Drakonnan: *screams in rage*
*Scene zooms out slightly to show Demento, who has been eavesdropping on Xan and Drakonnan's entire conversation.*
Demento: Oh no, I've been spotted!
*Scene zooms back in to Xan and Drakonnan.*
Xan: I think I know the perfect thing to whet your appetite, Drakonnan.
Xan: Find the eavesdropper...
Drakonnan: I will crush them for daring to spy on us!
Xan: Bring them back alive, apprentice.
Drakonnan: Yes, master...
*Demento has returned to his horse, and plans to catch up with you and Galanoth to alert you both of his discovery regarding Konnan's new identity.*
Demento: Konnan is lost.
Demento: I must warn <Character>, Galanoth... I can't let Ko...
Demento: I can't let Drakonnan get to them first!
*Demento begins riding away on his horse, when suddenly he is struck by a fiery blast.*
*Demento and Drakonnan briefly attack one another.*
Drakonnan: YOU WILL BURN!
*Drakonnan attacks Demento again.*
Demento: Konnan, stop this!
Drakonnan: Konnan is no more!
*Demento and Drakonnan briefly attack one another again.*
Drakonnan: *Hrgh* I... will... not... be... DEFEATED!!!
*Drakonnan attacks Demento with another fiery blast.*
Demento: You.. will never...
Drakonnan: That is where you are wrong.
*Scene zooms out to show Drakonnan holding the Fire Orb.*
*Drakonnan attacks Demento with a flaming spear, which pierces through him. Galanoth senses this.*
Galanoth: Something... something is wrong, we must go west! Quickly!
*Demento falls to the ground, fatally wounded.*
Drakonnan: You were one of the ones who tracked the dragon. A quick death is too good for you.
Drakonnan: You should have suffered as my family did.
Drakonnan: Know this, as you breathe your last. I do not care what Xan says...
Drakonnan: I will go east, I will gather an army using the Fire Orb, find <Character> and DESTROY THEM.
Drakonnan: This world will be left a cinder!
*You and Galanoth have headed back west.*
<Character>: Is this it?
*A red fire dragon attacks in the distance, revealing itself with the light from its fiery breath.*
Galanoth: We have to find Demento!
*You fight your way through various elementals of fire as you search for Demento.*
Galanoth: My brother! I... who, who did this to you.
Demento: Konnan. He...
Demento: ..Gone mad with grief...
Demento: Mad with...
*Demento cannot hold on any longer; he dies.*
Galanoth: DEMENTO, NO! COME BACK!
*A red fire dragon flies away, giving Galanoth something to fight for.*
Galanoth: No... You will not escape, dragon.
<Character>: What have you become?
