*Having nearly approached the Phobeist's ship, you ask Sirius about his history, and how he came to the Land of Dragons.*
<Character>: Alright, we're almost there.
<Character>: So, Sirius, tell me more about yourself, and your sister.
Sirius: Well, my sister, Kassandra, and I are not from this continent.
<Character>: Oh? Where are you from?
Sirius: We're from a continent south of here.
<Character>: Really? I don't think I've heard much about what is in the south.
<Character>: If I remember correctly, someone mentioned something about elemental titans, dragons, and giants, roaming these lands.
<Character>: But I'm not sure if that's true?
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.
<Character>: What brings you here, then?
Sirius: Kassandra, actually.
<Character>: You two must be pretty close if you followed her all the way here.
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 pauses before he reveals the bad news regarding Kassandra's parents.*
Sirius: Well, they aren't with us anymore...
<Character>: I'm sorry to hear that...
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.
<Character>: Well, if it's magic you are interested in, we'll have to have a chat about it once this is over.
<Character>: I know a good amount of magic myself!
Sirius: She would love that.
<Character>: I noticed the magic you used to fight. Did Kassandra's parents teach it to you?
Sirius: Mostly. It's Rune Magic, a specialty of ours in the South.
*Sirius briefly touches his necklace—a pink pendant on a golden chain—the artifact which channels his rune magic.*
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>?
<Character>: Not much to tell!
<Character>: I have a world destroyer dragon that I hatched myself, saved the world a couple of times, got frozen for a couple of years, now here I am!
*Sirius glares at you, unamused by your "not much to tell" story.*
Sirius: That sounds a little more than "not much to tell"...
<Character>: What can I say, just the life of an average <Class>!
*As you finish telling your story to Sirius, a Feargeist and Herpetophobia appear behind you to ambush you both.*
<Character>: Not more of these guys!
Sirius: I take it this par for the course?
<Character>: Yeah, pretty much!
*You fight your way through various Feargeist and Herpetophobia monsters en route to the Phobeist's ship in Verteroche Crossing; upon arriving, the Phobeist can be seen holding an unknown artifact, which has multiple screaming faces.*
<Character>: There she is!
Phobeist: Go away!
<Character>: Is that any way to treat guests?
Phobeist: You already led this "Hero" to me!
Phobeist: You're going to lead it to me, too!
<Character>: Lead what to you?
Phobeist: I said...
Phobeist: GO AWAY!
*The Phobeist summons a twisted deer-sheep hybrid creature before you and Sirius; Sirius is very scared upon seeing the creature, due to his phobia of sheep.*
<Character>: Wait! THAT'S what you meant by sheep!
<Character>: That's unlike any sheep I've ever seen!
Sirius: Then you haven't seen Southern Sheep!
<Character>: That's terrifying!
Sirius: T-there's no way I'm fighting that thing!
<Character>: Come on, Sirius! We have to!
<Character>: To save your sister!
Sirius (inverted): I...
Sirius (inverted): I'm...
Battle! - begins battle with Ovinophobia.
Heal - fully replenishes HP, MP, and potions.
Run Away! - returns to Falconreach (Book 3).
*After the Ovinophobia is defeated, Sirius shouts at the Phobeist.*
Sirius: Kass! What do you think you are doing!?
*You appear shocked and confused by the Phobeist's true identity being Kassandra.*
Sirius: You know how afraid I am of those things!!!
<Character>: Kass... Kassandra?
<Character>: The Phobeist is your sister?!
Sirius: I'm sorry, <Character>, for misleading you.
Phobeist: Why do you want to lead it to me, Sirius?!
Sirius: What are you talking about? What's going on?
Sirius: If you tell me, I can help you!
*The Phobeist's artifact shakes violently within her grasp; Sirius glares at the artifact.*
Sirius: Where did you get that?
Phobeist: Go away, Sirius! It's coming!
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!
Phobeist: No! You're just trying to trick me!
Phobeist: You want that... that thing to get me!
Phobeist: This... it will protect me!
Sirius: I won't let anything get you, Kass. Just put the artifact down. You'll see.
Phobeist: You're lying! Just like your family!
Sirius: You know I would never lie to you!
Sirius: This thing is messing with your mind! It's holding you hostage!
Phobeist: You didn't follow me here because you cared!
Phobeist: You only came because they sent you!
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–
Phobeist: What? Used this as an excuse to get out of your stuffy tower, Prince?
Phobeist: Oh no, I can only imagine the rumors being sold on the streets back home!
<Character>: Prince? Wait, Sirius, are you–
Sirius: I'll explain later...
Phobeist: I won't let you do this to me!
*Under the strong influence of her artifact, the Phobeist's eyes and runes darken.*
Phobeist: I won't!
Sirius: Kass, I know what you're thinking!
Sirius: Don't do this!
*The Phobeist prepares to cast a spell upon you and Sirius.*
<Character>: What's happening?
Sirius: <Character>, run! I don't want you getting sucked into this!
<Character>: Sucked into what?!
*The Phobeist summons a portal beneath you and Sirius; you attempt to run away from the portal, only to be sucked into it; scene cuts to black.*
Pop-up headlines during the quest:
This leads to a clearing, definitely not the right way to go.
Falconreach is this way, and you're not going to Falconreach!
Nope, the dock isn't this way.
You try the handle, hoping that the sea is behind this door, but it's locked. You should check some other way.
