Location: The Gala, The Burning Village, The Bargain, Reminiscence, Darkheart, ANOMALY
???: Enjoying the gala... ...<Character>?
The Burning Village
???: Give me a status report.
???: Is that right?
???: Anything else?
???: Does anyone else suspect?
Lysander: Continue as planned.
Lysander: I do believe that's checkmate.
Lysander: Ah. Thank you.
Lysander: I apologize, Your Lordship. We'll have to play again sometime.
Lysander: I look forward to it.
Lysander: And the Rose?
Lysander: I see.
Lysander: I was just thinking. The red-eyed man you mentioned before...
Lysander: I believe it's time I pay him a visit.
Lysander: No. There's no need.
Lysander: I'll see to it myself.
Lysander: I should hardly think one girl is worth the effort.
Lysander: And therefore, you've enlisted my services... correct?
Lysander: You'd burn an entire village just to get one girl?
Lysander: You're a cruel man, Chancellor.
Lysander: You exceeded all my expectations.
Lysander: Don't worry. I have no interest in harming your friend.
Lysander: On the contrary, I should thank you.
Lysander: You eliminated the Chancellor for me. And saved me the effort on my part.
Lysander: I wonder. To defy fate at such a young age...
Lysander: The two of you... will you change the world someday?
Lysander: If so, then I look forward to it.
Lysander: Until then...
Lysander: I thought I told you to stay at the villa.
Lysander: No matter.
Lysander: And so the wheel of fate turns.
Lysander: Allow me to introduce myself properly. My name is Lysander.
Lysander: Baron of Swordhaven. Marquis of Fairglade.
Lysander: Though I admit, those titles hold little interest for me.
Lysander: I've heard some interesting things about you, <Character>.
Lysander: Your exploits with the Rose. The Shears. The Thorns.
Lysander: Ah. We meet again.
Lysander: To think you're still alive... after nearly two decades, no less.
Lysander: You. Boy. It seems you have quite the interesting skill.
Lysander: Enchantment? No.
Lysander: Something else...
Lysander: Augmentation. How brilliant. Using mana to strengthen your physical abilities beyond the norm.
Lysander: You can increase your speed and reflexes a hundredfold... or heighten your defensive capabilities to the very limit.
Lysander: The possibilities are endless.
Lysander: Simple, yet elegant... with nearly infinite applications. That is the nature of my magic.
Lysander: The manipulation of air. Of sound.
Lysander: That's quite enough.
Lysander: My only goal... is destruction.
Lysander: The current conflict is quite a boon for me.
Lysander: War is easy to fuel. And money is easy to acquire.
Lysander: The demand for weapons and supplies never ceases.
Lysander: Whether it's the Rose, a foreign nation...
Lysander: Or even the Vind.
Lysander: I see you're beginning to understand.
Lysander: Organizing a resistance is no small feat. Nor is running a kingdom... and providing for all its subjects.
Lysander: It requires funds. It requires power.
Lysander: —who are sympathetic to their cause? Nobles willing to lend an ear to their plights?
Lysander: Right... wrong... it doesn't matter to me.
Lysander: Because no matter who triumphs in this conflict... we can always engineer more.
Lysander: The only victor... will be anarchy.
Lysander: You're more than welcome to try and stop me.
Lysander: In fact, I look forward to it.
Lysander: Good day.
Lysander: Do I know you?
Lysander: I'm afraid you're mistaken. This is our first meeting.
Lysander: It seems we have company.
