Sirius joins you as Guest A.
*You and Sirius has landed to an unknown dreamscape; the portal that transported you and Sirius to this place closes.*
<Character>: What is this place?
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.
<Character>: The Phobeist put me in something similar the first time we met. It was not fun.
<Character>: Wait! Back to what just happened! Is she your sister or not?!
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.
<Character>: She said something about you leading something to her. Do you know what she meant by that?
Sirius: No... She could mean the Arcana, but I doubt it. It sounded more like she's afraid of a monster rather than a person.
<Character>: What's the Arcana?
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...
<Character>: Your father decides who to send? So you are a prince?
<Character>: So, should I be calling you, "your Highness"?
Sirius: Please don't...
<Character>: Whatever you say, "your Highness".
Sirius: Please. Let's just find our way out of here so we can save Kass.
*You and Sirius fight your way through Sirius' Fearscape, battling various Fear monsters along the way until you and Sirius reach a portal.*
Sirius: Finally! I am so ready to be out of this place!
*Kassandra enters to guard the portal.*
Sirius: Come with us! You know this isn't like you!
Kassandra: I can't let you leave!
Kassandra: If... if I let you out, you're going to lead it to me!
Kassandra: I can't let you!
<Character>: Lead what to you?! We can help you!
Kassandra: No! I won't let it trick me! Just turn around and leave me alone!
*Sirius readies his summoned sword to battle.*
Sirius: I'm sorry, Kass, but this is for your own good...
Sirius: I promised I would keep you safe.
Battle! - begins battle with Kassandra.
Heal - fully replenishes HP, MP, and potions.
Run Away! - returns to Falconreach (Book 3).
*After defeating Kassandra, she continues to hold her artifact as Sirius glares at it and uses his summoned sword to disable it, dispelling the Fearscape and returning to reality; you, Sirius and Kassandra have returned to Kassandra's ship.*
Kassandra: Sirius? What did you—
Sirius: Kass! Look at me. How are you feeling? Are you—
Kassandra: Sirius, what did you do?!
*Kassandra's artifact floats into the air as Sirius' summoned sword dissipates before being destroyed; the artifact's destruction causes the Fear Engine going out of control.*
<Character>: Um. Is that supposed to do that?
Kassandra: Obviously not! The artifact was the only thing keeping the Fear Engine under control!
Kassandra: Did you have to go and destroy it, Sirius?!
Sirius: It... It was the only way I could think of saving you!
<Character>: Uhh, guys! Can we talk about this later?!
*The now out of control Fear Engine causes many Fear monsters to escape.*
Kassandra: We need to get out of here, now!
*Scene cuts to black.*
