*You are surrounded on both sides by your comrades, allies, and bitter rivals. You appear to be deep in thought while they all panic over how bad the fighting is getting.*
Ash: ... the cultists, we should...
Symone: ... need to reinforce...
Valencia: ... you're not listening...
Ash: ... <Character>...
Nythera: ... should I just...
Lafter: ... heavy losses already, and...
Guardian Kain: ... it's no use, we're all going to...
Rolith: ... why don't we ask...
Amadeus: ... getting really tired of your...
*You immediately snap out of your deep thought upon hearing Ash call your name for the third time in a row.*
Ash: <Character>! We need you!
<Character>: I'm... I'm sorry. I must have...
<Character>: Sorry. Yes. I'm with you. What's the status?
Valencia: It's very, very bad. The gates are holding for now, but we can't all just sit here.
Guardian Kain: Yes, yes we can! We should stand our ground here! The entire town is fortified, our best strategy is to wait it all out!!!
Guardian Endnai: You're not thinking straight! What happened to you?! You are a Guardian... you swore to serve and protect!
*Guardian Kain looks at Endnai from behind and looks down at the ground, feeling guilty and apologetic for his hasty remark.*
Guardian Kain: This is... hitting me harder than I expected. My apologies...
Lafter: As I was saying, we've already suffered heavy losses, from both Guardian and Rose troops...
Lafter: Our prime goal is to ensure the safety of the townspeople! Sending more people outside the walls won't-
Rolith: We're doing our job, why don't you-
<Character>: STOP IT!!!
*You look behind you to face the other half of the group of those who gathered on the guardian tower's exterior. You are extremely infuriated.*
<Character>: I'm getting... SICK... of this infighting!!!
<Character>: We are all in this TOGETHER!
Lafter: ... who put you in charge?
<Character>: SOMEONE has to take the initiative, because we won't achieve anything if we bicker amongst ourselves!
<Character>: Heavy losses...
*You turn around once again as you contemplate under the little time you now have.*
<Character>: Signal the retreat to all the troops beyond the walls, we're going to-
*Raven, who hair is now colored dark magenta, arrives in full uniform and no mascara compared to when you two last met, but is in healthy condition. Her arrival slightly surprises you.*
<Character>: You're not a... ... what are you doing here?
Raven: Amityvale is under attack! I haven't heard from Magus Neron in a while, I needed to get help.
Raven: And I-
Raven: And I thought of you.
Lafter: You were assigned to Amityvale? Why did you leave your post then?!
<Character>: Amityvale under attack too... ?
Guardian: Not only Amityvale, Lord/Lady <Character>!
Guardian: Courier ravens keep coming in, multiple regions are asking for help!
<Character>: Oh no...
Guardian Kain: Surely we can't aid them all? We need to protect Falconreach!
Lafter: I... agree with the Guardian. Falconreach is the last stand, we cannot let it fall.
Lafter: And besides, the Darkness is specifically targeting this town!
Lafter: It might be because of...
Lafter: ... <Character>... ... since YOU appointed yourself as the one in charge...
Lafter: What do we do?
*Ash, Cinquefoil, Valencia, and Symone all look at you. Judging from their faces, they might be asking the same question because they, too, are counting on you just like the rest of Falconreach. You are deep in thought again, with the same question pondering in your head as if multiple hammers are banging on the ground all at once.*
*The same question runs through your mind again, but after a few minutes of heavy thinking, you raise your head, ready to sincerely answer the question.*
<Character>: Defend Falconreach.
<Character>: I will go and aid those who are asking for help.
Guardian Endnai: Alone... ?
<Character>: I can do this.
<Character>: Do you have a problem with that?
Amadeus: It's what you do, after all.
Amadeus: You solve everyone else's problems...
*You glare at Amadeus briefly, indicating that you don't believe his answer at all.*
Raven: We'll help you.
Symone: You don't need to go alone. If you need a hand, just ask.
<Character>: Please, everyone, defend the town. Take it very carefully... hold the gates... I'll try to get back as frequently as I can.
Ash: May the Avatars guide you.
*Fades to black.*
