One Step Ahead
???: I need to finish eating first. Although right now... the meal's too hot.
???: With evacuating?
???: And who might you be?
???: THE <Character>?
???: No, it doesn't ring any bells.
???: Describe this person for me. I have an exceptional visual memory.
???: Huh, I might have seen him around.
???: And what will I get in return for this information?
???: Because, right now, it strikes me as a... not very lucrative exchange.
???: I tell you where this Zhoom is... and I get nothing out of it?
???: Oh, this can wait. You do you, I'll be here. The food's cooled down!
???: Not bad!
???: Nnnnnot really. I can't harm anything.
???: Long story.
???: Tell you what!
???: I'll point you to where this Zhoom is... ... and I want in.
???: This whole... dragon, darkness and doom business. Looks like fun.
???: Aaaaand since I'm done here, might as well join the fabled hero and his/her entourage!
???: Life's a bit stale in this place, dunno why I stayed here so long.
???: Change of landscape might do wonders for my complexion.
Dove: Name's Dove, by the way. Tsk, weeeeell, that's not my name... but call me "Dove" anyway.
Dove: Aaaaand just so we're clear... food's on you.
??? (Dove): I saw him sneaking off, last week I think, at night. He took some food and went in that direction. To this... tower-thing.
??? (Dove): Don't mention it. I aim to please!
??? (Dove): So, where's the action?
??? (Dove): I don't care. See you soon!
Darkness is Coming
Dove: So this is how a Guardian Tower looks from the inside!
Dove: Yeah, I've been exploring the town.
Dove: Hello, everybody!
Dove: Correction, I didn't say that I'll help. I'm just here to see how the events unfold...
Dove: Aaaaand if anyone get's injured, I might...
Dove: Alright, I might "help", I guess.
Dove: I'm not a healer.
Dove: Oooookay, I am a healer, I suppose...
Dove: Just not in a... conventional way.
Dove: Yyyyyes? What do you want, lady?
Dove: Look at the size of this thing! I called dibs, it's mine.
Dove: The more, the merrier!
Dove: Yes, under these robes, I'm naked.
Dove: I punch people and they get better.
Dove: I'm not joking.
Dove: I was... "born" this way.
Dove: I can still pick up a stick and beat you with it, if that's your thing.
Dove: I'm not here to be liked. I'm here to sightsee.
Dove: And help people!
Friday the 13th Interlude
Dove: Sounds absolutely delicious and horrible at the same time.
Dove: There. Happy?
Dove: Now go, Mr. Random Guardian! Get hurt so I can heal you again!
Dove: Weeeeell, if you ask me, that's pretty clever. People's morale would decrease exponentially, if they now had to fight their dead frien-
Dove: Avvys... I'm just saying.
Dove: They can't focus.
Dove: Me neither.
Dove: They must've destroyed the amulet.
Dove: That ateala girl felt it too.
Dove: I have to admit, that was spectacular! And brave! I've seen a lot of things in my life and that takes the—
Dove: THIS... is your dragon?!
Dove: Their offspring... one of the twins.. you didn't tell me—
Dove: I can't...
Dove: I shouldn't, I...
Dove: I h-haven't done this in a while...
Dove: I think I'm g-gonna faint...
Dove: Please catch me.
Dove: But... hah...
Dove: Do take in mind that I'm heavier than I look.
Dove: Like... by a lot...
Sunbreeze Grove (Book 3)
Dove: Heeeey <Character>. How's it hanging?
Dove: Need anything?Talk
Dove: What do you wanna talk about?
Kid Dragon Accessories
- Who are you?
Dove: Heh, your memory is worse than mine.
Dove: My name is—
Dove: Call me Dove.
Dove: I am a wandering... monk.
Dove: Wandering, because I was kicked out of a monastery for punching a man back to life. Who knew this was something forbidden.
Dove: Yes, my touch heals. Everyone but me. My punches heal even better.
Dove: Sadly, I can do no harm.
Dove: Get in touch if you ever need my healing touching. Or punching.
Dove: Whatever ruffles your truffles.
- Sunbreeze Grove?
Dove: I like nice, secluded places. I've been all over, and this region is... especially cozy. And I get to work with Elysia.
Dove: She's a wise one. She's helping me with my... condition.
Dove: Besides, here, I'll get to know your dragon a little better. I have a feeling... you two are going to do great things together.
Dove: <Dragon> needs to unlock their full potential.
Dove: And I'm going to help you out.
Dove: Why of course I can make <Dragon> look their best! Not to brag, but fashion is my speciality. Just look at yours truly.

Dove: Yeeees, but I don't mind.
Dove: What's up?
Dove: You didn't know?
Dove: Elysia... died.
Dove: I'm just kidding, she's visiting her parents.
Dove: Because it's fun. So, Elysia's not here. How can I help you?
Dove: Last time was last time.
Dove: Do I.
Dove: Leeeet me stop you right here, hatchling! That's just rude. Is this what we're doing now? Being rude to your elders—
Dove: Alright, alright.
Dove: I haven't been entirely honest with you...
Dove: I'm not just a monk.
Dove: I am a... dragon.
Dove: Stuck in this form.
Dove: I've turned to Elysia for help, but...
Dove: There, now you know. My deepest secret...
Dove: I've learned Draconic.
Dove: H–Hold up, hold up! You want me to help... them?
Dove: Yeeeesh, uuh, I don't know about thaaaat.
Dove: Well, they're not wrong...
Dove: It's like this: There are maaaany many many prophecies that are false... and some that are true.
Dove: And the prophecy about some dragons are truer than others. And I'm very uncomfortable with prophecies. Or rather, I just don't want to meddl—
Dove: Oh, <Dragon>. I'm pretty sure that prophecy is true.
Dove: But I suppose it doesn't actually matter, and in a way it's not quite about <Dragon> specifically...
Dove: But... ugh, sorry, forget—forget about all of this! It doesn't matter. Deep breaths. Let me start again, properly this time.
Dove: Tell me about <Dragon>'s problem, and depending on what it is, I'll evaluate whether I can help or not.
Dove: Oooooh, shapeshifting! You should have started with that.
Dove: I'm afraid I can't help you with that issue. Shapeshifting is something each dragon has to, let's say, grow into. At their own pace.
Dove: But I suppose... we could travel to the monastery in the Whispering Steppes. It housed some draconic knowledge.
Dove: Oh, all of the monks are most likely already dead. That monastery was abandoned for quite some time.
Dove: Like, for hundreds of years. Thousands? Lots.
Dove: Oh, I don't read. I only like pictures.
Dove: Interesting? Maybe. Relevant? No. Come here, I found the library!
Dove: It's... empty.
Dove: I guess... <Dragon> can try shapeshifting near the centerpiece statue on the courtyard? It was a meditative point.
Dove: A place of power or something.
Dove: That's what the monks said at least. I don't know.
Dove: Whoa, easy there, I said I didn't know!
Dove: It's more of a uh, natural process. Not quite something you can force. I don't think.
Dove: Kids, eh?
