Sir Leon joins you as Guest A.
*Continuing the events of where you and Leon last left off, both of you are confronted by the Rose Agent who is accompanied by a Manahuntress and a Rose Researcher.*
???: Well... this is a surprise...
???: But your visit, <Character>, however unexpected, is no less delightful!
<Character>: Didn't you send me a letter telling me to come here?
<Character>: So you don't have a clue? You weren't the one that sent it?
???: While the idea is tempting... I have strict orders from Master Lexoris to follow.
???: Whoever might have sent you that letter was not I.
<Character>: Master who?
???: Master Lexoris! The Head of Research into Magic Control and Containment under Magus Z. An ingenious and brilliant mind that—
<Character>: Eeeeasy. I get it.
<Character>: I'm not asking for a full bio.
<Character>: So, who does that make you then?
???: ... You do not remember me?
<Character>: Nope. Not a sausage.
*The agent puts on his skull mask to help jog your memory; he takes it off to find that you are staring blankly at him; irritated, he repeatedly puts on and removes his mask, but your reaction does not change, until you put on a cheery smile.*
<Character>: Uh... nice mask?
Rose Agent: ... YOU CAN'T BE SERIOUS!
<Character>: Hey now!
<Character>: I am not saying we've never met... just that I don't remember you.
Rose Agent: BUT WE FOUGHT!! WE TRADED BLOWS!!
<Character>: Did you read my terms of employment?
Rose Agent: ... Beg your pardon?
<Character>: I'm the Hero of Falconreach! Section 4C of Article 45 of the Hero code stipulates—
<Character>: —that I'm only obliged to remember villains who were at least semi-memorable in the storyline!
*The agent's eyes widen in disbelief while you smirk playfully; shortly afterwards, your expression returns to normal.*
<Character>: But seriously, I don't know what you expected... I beat a bunch of lugs silly an average of five times a day.
Rose Agent: But... I'm—
*The agent is speechless, but the researcher is quick to interrupt his train of thought without hesitation.*
Rose Researcher: Um... Maximillien, Sir.
Rose Agent: ... What?
Rose Researcher: The other one's taking the prisoner...
*The agent's eyes widen again and he looks at the wall where the man used to be; just before Leon got caught, he placed the captive on the ground; he smiles at the aggressors awkwardly; the agent becomes frustrated.*
<Character>: Drats... almost had him.
Rose Agent: Step away from our prisoner....
<Character>: Or what? You'll make us?
*Two Gorillaphants shackled in the green bracelets arrive at the agent's side to help him deal with you and Leon.*
Rose Agent: Or these Gorillaphants that have had their natural strength and endurance greatly enhanced by our new grade of Rose bracelets will make you...
Enraged G-phant (1), Enraged G-phant (2) (in unison): *furious Gorillaphant growls*
*You pause at the sight of the two new formidable opponents.*
<Character>: Know what? I should stop asking stupid rhetorical questions.
Leon: It doesn't look like taking the prisoner and making a run for it is an option anymore.
Leon: Our foes want to crush the competition by way of enhancements.
<Character>: Maybe, but they're not the only ones who can up the ante!
<Character>: Ready for a fight, Sir Leon?
*Leon looks at you with a smile; he removes a vial of mana from his belt and smashes it on the floor; the droplet immediately shapes itself into an upgraded mana-infused sword for Leon to use in combat.*
Leon: Ready when you are, <Character>!
Battle! - begins battle with 2 Gorillaphant and Rose Agent.
Heal - fully replenishes HP, MP, and potions.
Run Away! - returns to The Shears.
*You and Sir Leon battle the Rose Agent and the two shackled Gorillaphants until you both emerge victorious.*
Leon: Your game is up, Rose Agent. Tell us what the Rose is doing here.
Rose Agent: ...
Rose Agent: Research.
<Character>: What for? What are you seeking to accomplish with this research?
Rose Agent: Do you seriously pretend not to know, <Character>?
Rose Agent: For Peace and Justice, of course!
Rose Agent: To put a stop to all the evils that have brought pain to friends! Family! Loved ones!
Rose Agent: With this research... we can make sure every thing that has caused harm can be controlled...
Rose Agent: ... that all things that try to bring the evils of misery and suffering to our door step are robbed of their ability to do so!
Rose Agent: And to protect common people from being wronged! Just like you do! Our goals and aims are the same!
Rose Agent: We seek to accomplish the same th—
<Character>: That's nothing like what I do! When a bad guy shows up, I stop them and leave it at that. That's how you—
Rose Agent: Stop them from what?! Going on to continue with their trespasses again?!
<Character>: No, I just—
Rose Agent: STOP BEING NAIVE!
Rose Agent: Does stopping any number of Necromancers, time and time again, ever prevent them from returning—
Rose Agent: —and raising more of our dead loved ones to come and rip us to shreds!?
Rose Agent: Did vanquishing the Pyromancer Xan all those times ever stop him from continuing to wreak havoc around the Kingdom?!
<Character>: No, but...
Rose Agent: But nothing!
<Character>: Putting every person that ever made a wrong choice in chains won't stop people from making wrong choices!
Rose Agent: You're blinded by your own glory.
Rose Agent: Not protecting people, but simply letting all the monsters that walk this world continue to wreak destruction on the innocent!
<Character>: If you'd only listen to me, you'd know that's not true—
Rose Agent: And I believed in you! That you had the world's best concerns at heart!
Rose Agent: But if that's the danger you're going to expose the world to...
Rose Agent: ... then you might as well just stay here!
*The agent flees the scene in a fit of rage, tears now streaming down his face; you call out to him, but it's pointless.*
<Character>: No, wait! You've got it all wrong! Come back!
Leon: Forget about him for now! We need to get this man out of here!
Leon: He hasn't stirred at all since we found him... I think he is in need of serious medical attention!
<Character>: ... Right. Just give me a second to grab the stuff he dropped and put it in my backpack. Could be useful.
*You hear a loud, startling rumble that causes you to panic.*
<Character>: ...What was that?!
???: Self-destruction mechanism of this facility activated...
???: Breakdown imminent in... T-1 minute.
Leon: This place is going to come down in mere moments!
<Character>: Grab his legs! We have to run!
*Scene cuts to black; off-screen, you and Leon carry the man and fortunately make it out of the the facility with just thirty seconds to spare.*
???: Breakdown imminent in... T-30 seconds.
*Scene fades back in to depict a lone green bracelet that was dropped on the ground as a mysterious figure approaches it.*
???: Breakdown in 15...
*The figure made of an armored wood grabs the shackle.*
???: Breakdown in 5...
*Scene fades to black.*
???: Countdown complete.
???: Self-destruction engaged.
*In the shadows, a man briefly chuckles.*
