A Serious Encounter
???: No! It caught up to me!
???: H-huh? Where did it go?!
???: And why am I still floating?!
???: What was that?!
???: You've seen them before?!
???: Then would you mind lending me a hand? These things won't leave me alone!
Sirius: The name's Sirius, and you are?
Sirius: Later, first we get rid of these sheep monsters!
Sirius: Like I said! Later!
Sirius: I'll take care of the ones I see, you can take out the ones you see!
Sirius: Well, it appears I'm afraid of giant mutated lizards now?
Sirius: That was definitely something different.
Sirius: It was also something much stronger than the shee– than these other things.
Sirius: Well, anyway, thanks for the help, <Character>.
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>?
Sirius: Well, the woman that created those monsters...
Sirius: The who?
Sirius: Well, she...
Sirius: She kidnapped my 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.
Sirius: You're willing to help? Really?
Sirius: Are you... "Sirius"?
Sirius: Right. Sister kidnapped. Scary monsters. I'd appreciate your help.
Falconreach (Book 3)
Sirius: Hi, <Character>! It's nice to see you again!
Sirius: Thanks, again, for the help. The sooner we rescue my sister, the better.
Invite Sirius as a guest (DA Required; Locked)
Sirius: Certainly. What do you want to know?
- Who are you?
Sirius: I'm a Rune Arcanum and a researcher of all things magic. I'm looking for my sister, and thanks to your help, I know we'll be able to save her!
Sirius: My sister, Kassandra, and I are from the continent South of here.
Sirius: We have traveled across Lore studying the different forms of magic we encounter.
- Rune Arcanum? (Locked)
- South? (Locked)
- Forms of Magic? (Locked)
Storming the Boat
Sirius: Well, my sister, Kassandra, and I are not from this continent.
Sirius: We're from a continent south of here.
Sirius: I don't know much about that.
Sirius: The South is a pretty big place.
Sirius: I haven't heard of anything like that, but that doesn't mean they don't exist.
Sirius: Kassandra, actually.
Sirius: We are. Though she isn't my sister by blood.
Sirius: Ever since we were little, our families were always close.
Sirius: Her parents were actually the ones to introduce me to magic.
Sirius: They used to teach me about all the different types of magics they had discovered during their travels.
Sirius: They were supposed to teach me how to perform them all, until...
Sirius: Well, they aren't with us anymore...
Sirius: Anyway, after they passed, my parents sought to it that Kass was taken care of.
Sirius: We were inseparable ever since.
Sirius: Now we travel the world, studying the different magics that exist on Lore, like her parents would have wanted.
Sirius: From the South, Azaveyr, and now, here.
Sirius: She would love that.
Sirius: Mostly. It's Rune Magic, a specialty of ours in the South.
Sirius: This artifact allows me to use it.
Sirius: It is an heirloom, passed down through my family for generations.
Sirius: We aren't exactly sure how it works, but it seems to "focus" magic into something more potent.
Sirius: But enough about me, what about you, <Character>?
Sirius: That sounds a little more than "not much to tell"...
Sirius: I take it this par for the course?
Sirius: Then you haven't seen Southern Sheep!
Sirius: T-there's no way I'm fighting that thing!
Sirius (inverted): I...
Sirius (inverted): I'm...
Sirius: Kass! What do you think you are doing!?
Sirius: You know how afraid I am of those things!!!
Sirius: I'm sorry, <Character>, for misleading you.
Sirius: What are you talking about? What's going on?
Sirius: If you tell me, I can help you!
Sirius: Where did you get that?
Sirius: You need to put that thing down and get away from it.
Sirius: Nothing is coming for you.
Sirius: That artifact is messing with your mind!
Sirius: I won't let anything get you, Kass. Just put the artifact down. You'll see.
Sirius: You know I would never lie to you!
Sirius: This thing is messing with your mind! It's holding you hostage!
Sirius: That's not true, Kass!
Sirius: You know that if I didn't go after you, they would have sent Arcana to drag you back!
Sirius: I just–
Sirius: I'll explain later...
Sirius: Kass, I know what you're thinking!
Sirius: Don't do this!
Sirius: <Character>, run! I don't want you getting sucked into this!
Into the Fearscape
Sirius: It's a Fearscape. Mine to be exact. A place that manifests one's most gruesome fears.
Sirius: It's an advanced type of phobia magic her parents worked on.
Sirius: She is like a sister to me. But the Kass I know and the "Phobeist" you have encountered in the past are one in the same.
Sirius: I'm sorry for misleading you. Lying is a family specialty that I don't like to partake in.
Sirius: I didn't want it to appear that I supported Kass's previous messes. Especially those you apparently have had to clean up.
Sirius: I will admit the situation is worse than I thought. That artifact that Kass was holding seems to be feeding off her fears.
Sirius: They're mages, similar to me. They are the Empire's special task force.
Sirius: I knew once Kassandra ran away, they would most likely be sent to hunt her down.
Sirius: I had to appeal to my father to send me instead. I convinced him that I could make her come back peacefully.
Sirius: Kass said I used it as an excuse to leave the Capitol, and while that is partially true, I really just want to figure out *why* she ran away...
Sirius: Please don't...
Sirius: Please. Let's just find our way out of here so we can save Kass.
Sirius: Finally! I am so ready to be out of this place!
Sirius: Come with us! You know this isn't like you!
Sirius: I'm sorry, Kass, but this is for your own good...
Sirius: I promised I would keep you safe.
Sirius: Kass! Look at me. How are you feeling? Are you—
Sirius: It... It was the only way I could think of saving you!
???: There you are!
???: Hold on! I'll get you out!
Sirius: Looks like I made it just in time.
Sirius: Now, Kass, would you mind telling us where we are?
Sirius: Well why didn't you say so? I'll run ahead and see if I can find it!
Sirius: It's nice to meet you, Lady Kassandra. I look forward to becoming friends!
Sirius: It's alright, Lady Cassiopeia! I don't need any special treatment. I'm sure we will end up being friends eventually!
Sirius: We both love magic, after all! And together, we are going to learn all the magic Lore and beyond has to offer!
Sirius: Quick! Get behind me!
Sirius: Are you alright?!
Sirius: Don't worry, you're safe now.
Sirius: I'll always be here to protect you!
Sirius: I told you, Cassiopeia, you don't have to call me "Prince".
Sirius: I shouldn't keep my father waiting! I'll be back later for my lesson!
Sirius: Look at this new spell I can do, Kass!
Sirius: Alcor sent me to get him some burn salves for him...
Sirius: N-nothing... Never mind! Good night!
Sirius: My-my magic! It-it-it... It burns!
Sirius: W-why? D-did I do something wrong? Why is my magic hurting me?
Sirius: Hey! You two! I think I found something!
Sirius: Get over here, you're going to want to see this!
Across the Fearscape
Sirius: See? Just over there! That looks pretty important, right?
Sirius: That's the easy part. We'll just have to fight our way over! Follow me!
Sirius: If we have a plan, then let's do it! Let's get out of here!
Sirius: I'll get it to make a big sheep. What's the worst that can happen?
Sirius: Here it comes! Get ready!
Sirius: It's just a sheep. It's... just a sheep...
Sirius: It was Nature necromancy! Those roots were all twisted around the bones! It was terrifying!
Sirius: No, you!
Sirius: Wha—! That's... that's not a sheep...
Sirius: The Imperial Crown. My biggest fear is... being Emperor?
Sirius: I have no interest in being Emperor.
Sirius: Kass, is that true?
Sirius: Enough! You will not speak to my friends like this any longer!
Sirius: Draw your weapons, and let us end this!
Sirius: Speak for yourself! That was awful! Thank goodness that's over!
Sirius: He was creepy!
Sirius: Kass, you don't have to—
Sirius: ...The creature that has haunted her dreams for years.
Sirius: The legendary beast of the South that killed her parents...
