Location: The Nest, Nest Robber, Be Prepared, Leaving the Nest, The Nest - Epilogue
???: Timothy? Timothy, where are you?
Grace: Oh my! Could this be <Character>?
Grace: Is something the matter?
Grace: I get that a lot, but I'm afraid I haven't met you.
Grace: My name is Grace, and this little hurricane is Timothy.
Grace: So well mannered! I'm afraid Messimy is out on a small errand for a bit, but she should be back soon.
Grace: Would you like a tour in the meantime?
Grace: And these are the children's bedrooms.
Grace: Oh, from all over Lore. Messimy is always traveling around to save kids from certain... situations.
Grace: Most of the kids here lost their parents to magic attacks. For example: Timothy lost his parents years ago when a dragon attacked his village.
Grace: It's truly a miracle he survived. By the time Messimy found him, he was starving and dehydrated.
Grace: It's amazing that he's still such a lively kid, considering all that has happened to him.
Grace: Not... all of them...
Grace: Oh, Messimy, you're back!
Grace: Great! I guess I'll start cooking, then!
Grace: Children, please, why all the ruckus?
Grace: Certainly, dear.
Grace: Though... may I suggest something?
Grace: Woodland creatures and animals make for such wonderful allies.
Grace: Precisely, Messimy! I do have a way with animals.
Grace: If <Character> would be so kind as to bring a couple of them to me, I could start training them to help defend the Nest.
Grace: I should be able to get a small group trained, at least.
Grace: Yes, dear.
Leaving the Nest
Grace: The animals are ready to protect the Nest, dear!
Grace: Oh, and I just prepared the loveliest games for the children!
Grace: Yes! Even if they step on the Nest, the basement will hold!
Grace: Oh dear... so she went and did it, huh?
Grace: I've known Messimy for longer than the Nest has existed, so yes... I knew her true form.
Grace: When I felt that wave of magic coming from outside, familiar magic...
Grace: Oh I hope she doesn't push herself too hard.
Grace: Of course, dear. We all should seek shelter in the basement anywa–
<Character>: She did it to save the children, to save her nest.
<Character>: I can prepare something to keep him sedated. We don't want him to be gone with the wind.
Grace: That's much appreciated, dears.
Grace: I was sure you were going to tell them, Cole. I'm sorry about that.
<Character>: Oh Cole...
<Character>: Well, I better bring the news to the children.
<Character>: They'll be heartbroken for sure...
The Nest - Epilogue
Grace: Everything is just fine, deary. Timothy is playing with his friends and Cole is doing his regular repairs.
Grace: Oh something IS off.
Grace: We haven't had a single monster problem after you left. Not a single bandit trying to get some easy gains off a defenseless orphanage.
Grace: Usually we were safe because...
Grace: ...because when Messimy was around, any sane bandit or hungry creature would think twice about attacking this place... but now...
Grace: Exactly. I suspect there's something in the woods. Something that keeps the other monsters away.
Grace: The few critters that remain. They seem... frightened somehow. Avoiding the deep parts of the woods.
Grace: If it's not too much trouble?
Grace: Thank you, deary! I'll be sure to have some cookies ready for when you return!
Some of Grace's dialogue in Leaving the Nest incorrectly labels your character as the speaker.
