*Somewhere in Greenguard, a Wild Cabit is seemingly alone in the woods, until an unknown, pink-haired man sprints past it, as if being chased by something; the man reaches a clearing in the woods and falls down a small way, landing on you, who appears to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.*
???: Oww., <Character>: Oof...
*The pink-haired man is elevated by an invisible force.*
???: No! It caught up to me!
*The invisible force reveals itself to you; it's one of the Phobeist's Feargeists; now it has revealed itself to you, the pink-haired man cannot see it.*
???: H-huh? Where did it go?!
???: And why am I still floating?!
*You appear shocked to see this, having thought you had already dealt with the Phobeist and her creations.*
<Character>: Hold on!
*You banish the Feargeist, and the pink-haired man falls to the ground once more.*
???: What was that?!
<Character>: Invisible fear monsters, you know, the usual...
???: You've seen them before?!
<Character>: Yeah. Beat up a few too.
???: Then would you mind lending me a hand? These things won't leave me alone!
Sirius: The name's Sirius, and you are?
<Character>: So, why are they after you?
*With a familiar sound, you turn around; more Feargeists now threaten you and Sirius, however the ones that threaten Sirius are still invisible to you.*
Sirius: Later, first we get rid of these sheep monsters!
<Character>: You're afraid of sheep?
Sirius: Like I said! Later!
Sirius: I'll take care of the ones I see, you can take out the ones you see!
<Character>: On it!
Battle! - begins/continues gauntlet.
Heal - fully replenishes HP, MP, and potions.
Run Away! - returns to player's last visited town.
*After defeating a gauntlet of Feargeists, as well as a new Herpetophobia, you and Sirius regroup.*
Sirius: Well, it appears I'm afraid of giant mutated lizards now?
<Character>: Wait, you saw it too? I know I'm not afraid of lizards.
<Character>: I have one as a pet!
*You can't believe what you've just said, knowing your dragon loathes being referred to as a lizard or pet.*
<Character> (thinking): I'm glad <Dragon> didn't hear me call them a lizard!
<Character> (thinking): Or a pet...
Sirius: That was definitely something different.
Sirius: It was also something much stronger than the shee– than these other things.
<Character>: Like it was made to fight...
Sirius: Well, anyway, thanks for the help, <Character>.
<Character>: It wasn't so baaaaah-d.
*Sirius is not amused by your sheep pun.*
Sirius: Listen, when I was a kid there were these sheep that–
Sirius: It's a perfectly rational fear!
Sirius: What do you see then, brave <Class>?
<Character>: Umm... I'd rather not get into it.
*Sirius glares at you disapprovingly.*
<Character>: Anyway... Why were those Feargeists after you?
Sirius: Well, the woman that created those monsters...
<Character>: The Phobeist?
Sirius: The who?
<Character>: The Phobeist! She creates those monsters to sell to others. I fought her when she used them to help The Rose kidnap people for a ritual.
Sirius: Well, she...
Sirius: She kidnapped my sister.
<Character>: That's strange. The Phobeist didn't seem like someone to kidnap people for her own use...
<Character>: What did she want with your sister?
Sirius: I... I don't know...
Sirius: I made it to her boat and saw my sister for just a moment, before this Phobeist set those sheep– I mean, Feargeists, after me.
Sirius: But now that they've been dealt with, I'm going back.
Sirius: Thanks again for your help.
<Character>: Wait! Even after being chased away the first time, you're just going to go alone? She's extremely dangerous!
<Character>: And if your sister's been kidnapped, I can't just stand by.
<Character>: I'll go with you. I've dealt with the Phobeist before.
Sirius: You're willing to help? Really?
Sirius: Are you... "Sirius"?
*You glare at Sirius... it appears you've met your match when it comes to puns.*
Sirius: Right. Sister kidnapped. Scary monsters. I'd appreciate your help.
<Character>: Another pun like that and I might reconsider...
*You presumably head off with Sirius to confront the Phobeist; elsewhere, presumably back on her boat, the Phobeist appears deep in concentration.*
Phobeist: It's getting close!
Phobeist: I know it!
Phobeist: I can't let it get to me!
*The purple mist of traveling Feargeists now surrounds the Phobeist.*
Phobeist: My creatures will protect me...
Phobeist: They will protect me...
