*You and Elryn stand face to face with each other as the room around you darkens and lightens up repeatedly.*
Elryn: Nothing to say?
Elryn: You could at the very least tell how it is you know of me.
<Character>: Know you? That's nothing much really.
*The scene shows Kara SuLema handing you the paperwork before your mission to Espina Rosa.*
Kara SuLema: Here are Edd's papers, and some more information on your target.
*The flashback ends.*
<Character>: Kara gave me some documentation that told me all the basic stuff about you... Your name, a brief description.
<Character>: That's really all there is to it. I just got briefed.
Elryn: Kara SuLema?
<Character>: You bet.
Elryn: It has been a while since I have heard that name...
Elryn: Then again, it has been a while since I heard any old names really.
<Character>: I still kinda expected more.
<Character>: Like... bringing down a set of cell bars? Maybe two?
<Character>: I mean I at least expected it to be a bit harder getting you out of here...
<Character>: ...But hey, I guess I won't complain if it means we can get out of here sooner! Let's hit the road!
<Character>: We can talk all you want after we've gotten out of here. Right now we need to make a run for it!
<Character>: There's an escape path on the Second Floor and we have to get to it before we run into Sofist and his crew! Come on!
*You run away immediately before Elryn could stop you.*
Elryn: No, wait! <Character>!!
*The scene darkens.*
Elryn: <Character>, please!
<Character>: Keep it for later!
Elryn: <Character>! Listen-
<Character>: I SAID NOT NO-
Elryn: WATCH OUT!
*Your disguise of Edd's face falls off and lands on the ground.*
<Character>: Ow... That hurt!
*Sofist enters the area and becomes angered at the revelation.*
<Character>: It feels like I had a head on collision with a Gorrilaphant...
Vince: Edd? You...
Private Bradley: ......
<Character>: What? Why are you all looking at me like-
*The entire elite force looks at you in disbelief and shock.*
<Character> (thinking): Oh no... THE DISGUISE!
<Character>: Now hold on! I...I can explain everything!
*Sofist's eye twitches.*
Sofist: Get him/her!!!
*After the agonizing fight, you single-handedly destroy the elite force and you stand triumphantly.*
<Character>: Guess that armor wasn't going to do me much more good at this point anyway...
<Character> (thinking): I've got to think of something fast though. We need to get out of here pronto!
Sofist: Private! You do NOT set off Code Orange without my express permission!
Private Bradley: ... I didn't set it off, Sir.
Sofist: Then who DID?!
*Elryn speeds right past you faster than the blink of an eye.*
Private Bradley: I don't know, sir!
Sofist: Then I'll have to deal with this quickly my-
*Elryn appears right in front of Sofist, leaving Sofist in surprise.*
*Elryn casts a spell that somehow paralyzes Sofist, Vince, and Bradley. They are surrounded by a white glow.*
Elryn: That should keep them busy a while.
<Character>: How...What did you-
Elryn: I used the powers of the Wards to temporarily annul the Rhydd of their being.
<Character>: Powers of the W-?
<Character>: Run the last part by me again?
Elryn: Temporarily annul the Rhydd of their being?
<Character>: Nope. I got nothing.
Elryn: Rescinded the primal aspect of their inner freedom?
Elryn: Fancyshmancymagicy paralysis stuff.
Elryn: The other magical explanations did seem to go over your head.
<Character>: How bout we just skip the magical explanations for now?
Elryn: That works for me.
<Character>: So what exactly was that alarm all about?
Elryn: A group of men have stormed the Fortress and are heading our way.
<Character>: Someone is storming Espina Rosa? WHO would be crazy enough to do that?
Elryn: They are not your allies?
<Character>: Shouldn't be, unless...
*Dracelix, his comrades, and the knights meet up with you and Elryn in the area.*
<Character>: Dracelix?! Navon?! What...WHY are you guys here?!
Navon: To help of course!
<Character>: Is that.... <Dragon>!!
<Character>: I'M SO-
<Character>: Wait, slow-
<Character>: WAIT, SLOW...
*Your dragon flies on top of you and knocks you down.*
<Dragon>: I'M GOING TO COOK YOUR HINEY MEDIUM CHARCOAL!!!
<Character>: What? What are you... AH! AH! THAT'S HOT! THAT'S HOT!
Navon: ... What are they doing?
Dracelix: No clue. I do not understand Draconic.
<Dragon>: You're gone for years and come back just to leave me completely alone for weeks? WEEKS?!
Dracelix: Do you?
Elryn: It looks like they are having a bonding moment. It would likely be best if we leave them be.
<Character>: AAAHH! FIRE! FIRE!
*Flames are projected from the bottom left corner.*
Elryn: Now you... Dracelix is it?
Dracelix: It is.
<Character>: SOMEONE GET ME SOME WATER!!!
Elryn: Why are you and the others here?
*You are lit on fire as you run away from your dragon, but they continue chasing you.*
Dracelix: It was Leon's idea.
Dracelix: The de facto leader of our own branch of rebels.
Dracelix: The rebel cause owes him much as he's managed to raise our profile with his bold provocations and twarthings of the Rose.
Dracelix: He even managed to rescue Kara who had been taken from the Vind and held prisoner in Akanthus' clutches.
<Dragon>: What do you have to say for yourself?!!
Elryn: All this recently?
<Character>: Say? But that's not-
<Dragon>: *intense glare*
Dracelix: Yes. While he was in Sulen'eska, he had caught wind of something going on at Espina Rosa...
Dracelix: ...and he gambled that we could be used here.
<Character>: ... Ok, ok! I get it! I get it! Don't argue with the adorable avatar of destruction...
<Character>: ...I'm sorry.
<Dragon>: ... Then come here and let me lick your face all wet.
Navon: Somehow, all the soliders we ran into on the upper levels froze just like these ones have...
Navon: We could not have had better luck! We are in control of the Runed Fortress!
Elryn: It is very much the opposite.
Dracelix: What do you mean?
Elryn: It is you who have fallen into a trap.
