*Loads Artix (Class) and Daimyo as Friend B upon starting the quest. Morning has come and there was Artix, fast asleep on his bed. His battle companion, Daimyo, scurries to his bedside and barks to wake up his master. Artix wakes up before stretching his arm, checking "Wake up" off of his schedule for the day.*
Artix: Time to start the day!
*He gets up and gently pets Daimyo with a smile on his face, checking "Pet Daimyo" off of his schedule.*
Artix: Daimyo! Wake up the recruits and tell them to wait for me in the courtyard, after they eat!
*Daimyo enthusiastically barks and obeys the command while Artix takes his shower, therefore checking it off his schedule as well. Then afterwards, he sits down and treats himself to a dish of sushi. While eating, "Eat breakfast" has been checked off of his schedule. As Artix's mind stirs about within his room, "Come up with new puns" has been checked off instantly. His day resumes where he supervises the daily training expected from his recruits.*
Artix: Very good, Lexandios! Perfect stance, good grip.
Artix: Just remember that when you are parrying, do not put your right foot that far away, or the next time you are facing an undead, you might do a split!
Artix: Marthas! Don't jump around that much! The armor weighs a lot, you will get winded faster.
Artix: If you need to move that much, slide your feet on the ground.
Artix: Nara, hmm...
Artix: Daimyo, what do you think?
*Daimyo barks to Artix a couple times to voice his response to Nara's performance.*
Artix: Nara, utilize your nimbleness. That is to say, do not jump around like Marthas here, haha, just stay on your toes. Confuse your enemy!
Artix: As for the rest of you, good job! See you tomorrow!
*The daily training has concluded, effectively checking "Train the recruits" off of his schedule. Artix bends down to tie his shoelaces, checking off "Make sure your shoelaces are tied," however, he expresses a disturbing grin upon realizing his boots lack shoelaces, checking it off of his schedule as well. He then runs throughout the outskirts of a cemetery to slay the undead as usual.*
Grateful woman: Thank you so much, Artix! These... things just keep coming back!
Artix: Not a problem, this is just my responsibility! Say hello to your daughter for me!
Grateful woman: Certainly! Have a nice day!
*"Help the commonfolk" is checked off of his schedule after the woman was saved from the skeletons. He returns to the keep to treat himself to another dish of sushi, which checks "Eat lunch" off of his list before entering the sewers below to deal with some reptiles lurking inside.*
Artix: This should do it!
*As Artix smiles confidentially, "Defeat the reptiles living under the Keep, you do NOT want those crawling up through the pipes and getting into the toilet" off of his schedule.*
Artix: Hopefully, these were the last of them!
*Strangely enough, "Who are you kidding, of course they will be back" is checked off too, implying that he will have to repeat the routine the next day. Outside of the graveyard near Hunter's Paradise, he kneels on the ground next to the spirit orbs he freed from their skeletal cages. Fortunately, it checks "Help send the spirits of those collected by the Blinding Light of Destiny to their final resting place" off of his schedule. He then checks another errand off by stocking up on Holy Wasabi for a paladin like him will never know when the need for them will arise. Then he dines on a third dish of sushi, checking "Eat dinner" off of his schedule before he goes outside to take Daimyo for a walk in the forest.*
Artix: Here boy, catch!
*He takes out a bone and throws it in the air for Daimyo to chase, checking "Play fetch" off of his schedule. He catches it, causing Artix to petting him gently again.*
Artix: Who's a good boy? You aaaaare!
<Character>: A- Artix?!
*You arrive at the scene, interrupting this light moment in the moonlit night.*
Artix: <Character>!!! By the Avatars, it's so good to see you! How are you doing?
*He checks "Meet the hero" off of his schedule, even though he did not anticipate it happening tonight.*
<Character>: I- I was just on my way to see you. I... have a problem...
*Your dragon roars from a faraway distance, shocking Artix as he realizes what your problem was. "Hear the blood curdling roar of a Doom Dragon" is checked off his schedule.*
<Character>: Umm... what is this thing that keeps-
Artix: Oh, pay no mind to this list appearing seemingly out of nowhere!
<Character>: Oh... kay...
<Character>: My dragon, <Dragon>... has been taken away from me...
<Character>: They've been, I don't know, forced to spread doom and darkness. I could really use your help right now... please.
Artix: Well, certainly! This is, indeed, a very grave situation.
*Daimyo barks a couple times to bring up an idea that came to his mind.*
Artix: It's a dragon... your dragon, but a dragon nonetheless. We will need Galanoth's help as well.
<Character>: As much as I'd appreciate Galanoth's help, he may be otherwise occupied...
Artix: He will not say no to me, <Character>. I'll accompany you to the edge of Doomwood, then I'll visit him.
Artix: We shall meet again in Falconreach, when the time comes!
*You and Artix race through the forest while a silhouetted individual curiously looks through the trees. Up above, your dragon continues to spread its blanket of shadow as Caitiff's orders repeat in its tainted mind.*
Caitiff: Cover the world in darkness...
Caitiff: Snuff out the sun...
Caitiff: Engulf people's hearts with dread...
Caitiff: And I will let him/her live.
*Cuts to black instantly.*
