*In Sulen'Eska's meeting area, Kara SuLema holds a meeting with you and the other members of the Vind.*

Kara SuLema: Thank you all for gathering at my behest.
Kara SuLema: I wanted to... I wanted to thank you all for your help. For believing in me. In this cause.
Kara SuLema: In the Vind.
Kara SuLema: It's thanks to your hard work that we were able to save the clawkin, and defend the Dravir against the odds.
Kara SuLema: Since we repelled the attack on Haven, more and more join us in Sulen'Eska by the day.
Kara SuLema: Tales of the heroics of the Vind, all of us, all of the resistance, are spreading like seeds on the wind.
Kara SuLema: But as our numbers grow, I can't help but worry.
Kara SuLema: I... I didn't ask to lead the Vind.
Kara SuLema: No matter what happens, I just hope what we're doing is right. That we're making Lore a better place.

*Kara SuLema contemplates about leading the Vind and its hardships.*

Niki: Kara...
Niki: I've had my own doubts. There are... There are those we are unable to save. That is a fact.
Niki: After the siege of Haven, I asked myself if it was worth it. All this loss, even among the victories.
Niki: But I've seen what has happened to the clawkin first-hand. I've visited the refugees living in the boughs of Sulen'Eska.
Niki: Rest assured, it's better that we are here to defend who we can, than not at all.
Bajacu': Niki speaks true!
Bajacu': You are not all-powerful. Not one among us is.
Bajacu': You must have confidence, Kara. We follow because we trust your leadership.
Kara SuLema: Thank you, Niki, Bajacu'.
Kara SuLema: When I started the Vind from the lost scraps of the Sanctuary, I did it because there was no one else who would.
Kara SuLema: Who could.
Kara SuLema: I truly appreciate–
???: Kara! Intruder incoming!

*A wind elf with orange eyes interrupts the meeting with urgent news.*

Kara SuLema: Svera? What is the matter? Is there another disagreement between the refugees?
???: Let me through! I have to speak to Karla! Kareena? Whatever her name is!
Kara SuLema: Let our guest in, Svera.

Kara SuLema: I have confidence I will be safe.
Svera: As you wish, Kara.

*Per Kara's request, Svera allows a purple-haired fairy with purple wings to enter the meeting.*

Kara SuLema: And who might you be?
Melissa: I'm Melissa.
Kara SuLema: A pleasure to meet you, Melissa. I am Kara, leader of the Vind.
Kara SuLema: ...And I got the impression there was something you urgently wanted to discuss with me?
Melissa: Ah, right. Let me just...

*Melissa holds and reads her paper to the members of the Vind.*

Melissa: Ahem.
Melissa: Greetings, Kara of the Vind.

Melissa: And assorted leadership.
Melissa: I am Melissa, princess of the Fairy Court.
<Character>: Didn't we already do that introduction?
Mritha: Shh!
Melissa: I have come as a representative of my people, the Fairies.
Melissa: To humbly request your aid.
Melissa: Queen Maeve believes that The Rose is targeting our current grove.
Melissa: And they may make their move soon.
Melissa: We believe that with the aid of the Vind we- blah, blah, blah.
Niki: Blah?
Melissa: Look. We need your help, okay?
Melissa: The Rose has been getting a bit too close to our grove for comfort.
Melissa: My... mother, Queen Maeve, that is, refuses to let me fight them off, and we heard about what you did for the dravir and the clawkin.
Melissa: You're the resistance, right? Can you do some resisting for us? Shoo away The Rose or something?
Kara SuLema: Your mother is Queen Maeve... of the Fairies?
Mritha: Aren't you a bit tall to be a fairy?
Kara SuLema: Mritha!
Melissa: You know, in all my years, I have somehow, by some miracle, never heard that one before.
Melissa: If you want to keep all your limbs, I suggest I never hear it from you again.
Mritha: Brave talk from an oversized dragon snack.

*Your dragon appears to be drooling, presumably now tempted after Mritha's words.*

Mritha: ...I think we're going to get along.
Kara SuLema: Please, excuse Mritha. She–
Melissa: It's fine. She speaks her mind. I like that.
Melissa: So, about the help?
Kara SuLema: I'd be glad to provide any aid possible, but–
Melissa: Great. Sounds good. Let's get going.
Kara SuLema: But we need to be careful now more than ever before.
Kara SuLema: We have more refugees to care for, more fighters to train, just... more everything.
Kara SuLema: We will reconvene with you in a moment, Melissa. But please, allow us some time for private counsel.

*There is a brief moment of silence following Kara's orders for Melissa to leave during the Vind's private counsel.*

Melissa: Okay.
Melissa: Nice tree you have here.
Kara SuLema: Private. Counsel.

Kara SuLema: Svera can show you the way out, if you'd like.
Melissa: Right. Private. Gotcha.

*Melissa leaves the meeting.*

Kara SuLema: Melissa, princess of the fairies...
<Character>: She's certainly a character.
Kara SuLema: I haven't had any dealings with the fairies personally, but I see that the rumors of them being... capricious are not unfounded.
Bajacu': We clawkin tend to avoid them. Mischievous beings, though not malicious. Yet beings nonetheless.
Niki: We have to try to help them, don't we? We can't just leave them for The Rose to attack!
Mritha: I agree. We can't stand by and do nothing.
<Character>: If The Rose threatens more innocents, then I'll do my best to defend those who need it.
Kara SuLema: Thank you, everyone. I'm glad we are all in agreement.
Kara SuLema: Prepare yourselves, we're off to visit the Fairy Court!

*You fight your way through various creatures and Rose members on your way to the Fairy Court.*

Melissa: Welcome... to the Fairy Court!
Melissa: I...

*You, Melissa, and the other Vind members find that the Fairy Court is empty.*

Melissa: Hold on. Where is... everyone?
<Character>: Are we too late? We fought The Rose along the way here... Maybe...
Melissa: Stop. No...
Niki: There's no sign of struggle that I can see.
Melissa: Mother... you wouldn't...
Mritha: Melissa? What's going on?
Bajacu': Where are the fairies?
Melissa: That must be it.
Melissa: You were too slow! Mother must have had no choice...
Kara SuLema: The fairies must have gone already.
Melissa: How could they leave me behind?!
<Character>: Melissa?
Melissa: If they were going to leave anyway... why?
Melissa: Not even a trace to follow...
Kara SuLema: Melissa... I'm sorry... If only we were quicker...
<Character>: Wait. Melissa, didn't you say earlier that Queen Maeve didn't want you to fight?
Melissa: Yeah. In front of the whole court too. As if I didn't have the training. Or the skill.
<Character>: What if... What if sending you out to find the Vind was her way of granting you that wish?
Melissa: You mean...
<Character>: Yeah! She knew you wanted to fight The Rose, but if the other fairies didn't agree, what else could she do?
Mritha: That had to have been her plan!
Melissa: But... everyone else...

*Melissa contemplates Queen Maeve and the Fairy Court's decision to leave her behind to fight the Rose.*

Melissa: I... I need some time to think. Please. Leave me to my thoughts.

*Meanwhile, in Swordhaven, Jaania is in her room with her magic mirror; someone is knocking on her door.*

???: Lady Jaania?

???: I bring news from General Akanthus.
Jaania: Yes? What is it, Amadeus?

*Amadeus, who has an appearance of a young man with light red hair, enters Jaania's room.*

Amadeus: The campaign against the Vind has run into some setbacks.
Jaania: The... Vind?
Amadeus: The ones who attacked the prison and broke out a number of high priority magical criminals, my lady.
Amadeus: General Akanthus suspects they may end up targeting the Oculus Tower project.
Jaania: Ah. Yes. That Vind.
Amadeus: On that matter, General Akanthus is requesting more funds and troops.
Jaania: He shall have them.
Amadeus: Very well, my lady.

Amadeus: And a final note–
Amadeus: There are reports that <Character> has been seen in the company of the Vind.

*Jaania pauses, presumably as her once previous ally during the events with Wargoth has resurfaced.*

Jaania: Has s/he now?
Amadeus: I take it you read Magus Hansa's report on the Sandsea incident?
Jaania: It crossed my desk, yes.
Amadeus: Very well. I shall take my leave.

*Amadeus leaves Jaania's room; Jaania ponders the Hero's resurfacing.*

Jaania: <Character>...
Jaania: What has <Character> done?

Jaania: What could s/he do?

*Jaania turns to her magic mirror for enlightenment.*

Jaania: Magic and power.
Jaania: Where <Character> and <Dragon> go, so too follows destruction and catastrophe.
Jaania: Such things... must be contained.

*Scene cuts to black.*
