Balthus
...You wanna run away? Where
the hell are we gonna run to?!
Ain't nowhere to go!

Yuri
We'll figure it out as we go. For
now, anywhere is better than
this so-called Order of Heroes.
I don't know about the rest of you,
but I just can't stomach the idea of
being used as disposable pawns.

Hapi
Askr or Abyss... Doesn't make
much of a difference to me.

Balthus
Well, I'm willing to give gettin' outta
here a shot. Hapi, mind sighing in
the castle?
If we get some monsters inside,
making a break for it during the
commotion should be no sweat at all!

Constance
Ahahaha! As for me, I have no
desire to stay in such an absurdly
bright place!
A dim place of silence and elegance...
That is the only appropriate location
for me, Constance von Nuvelle!

Yuri
Last I checked, Abyss is a pretty far
cry from elegant...

Balthus
Sooo... Do any of you have ideas for
where we can hide? Not like we can
just hole up in the pantry...
We need somewhere that's fairly
dark, doesn't get any visitors, and
is big enough for all four of us.
??? In that case... How about
the Great Library of Askr?
Mmph mmph...

Yuri
Those wings... Is this some kind of
monster? It's certainly not the ugliest
one I've had the pleasure to meet...

Hapi
...Hey, don't look at me. It's not like
every monster that shows up is
from me sighing, you know.

Mirabilis
I'm Mirabilis, and I'm...*yawn*...not
a monster. I'm an álfr.
I was flying around while sleeping,
and I just happened to overhear
your conversation, so... *yaaaawn*

Constance
You mentioned a Great Library of
Askr earlier, did you not? Can you
tell us what manner of place that is?

Mirabilis
Mm? You need a place to hide, right?
Well...*yawn*...it's dark, doesn't get a
lot of visitors...*yawn*...and it's big.
The Great Library of Askr is probably
the perfect place to take a nap...and
to hide, I suppose...
All right, that's all from me... Zzzz...

Balthus
Wh-whoa, she just flew off while
asleep. Is she gonna be all right?

Yuri
The Great Library of Askr, huh... We
should slip in before dawn breaks.
Then we'll figure out our next step!

Constance
This. Is. It. The Great Library of Askr!
It’s so incredibly vast!

Hapi
We managed to slip inside, but what
do we do now? It’s not like we’ve got
a lot of food with us.

Yuri
True… First, we’ll need to figure out
how we can get back to Fódlan.
Most likely, that summoner is the
key. So if we can just do something
about [Summoner]

Balthus
Wait, hold on a sec. Weren’t we
called here to save this world?
Should we really be bailing this
quickly? I mean, we practically
only just got here!

Yuri
The Order of Heroes has gathered
many powerful and important Heroes.
Do they really need us at this point?
Let’s just let them take care of this
world bathed in light.

Hapi
Hey, it looks like these stairs go
quite a ways down. Think it’s worth
checking out?

Balthus
Whoa! This library is unbelievable!
Is this place really underground?!

Constance
It’s about as vast as Abyss, unless
I am mistaken… And that is rarely,
if ever, the case.
But its collection of books is nothing
less than incredible. Hmm…this
might be useful as reference material.

Yuri
Quiet, I sense someone!
…Hey, we know you’re there.
And unfortunately, we don’t really
have time to play hide-and-seek.

Loki
Hehe… Why, hello! If I recall, you four
are the Ashen Wolves… Which means
you came from Fódlan, yes?

Yuri
And you are…?

Loki
I am Loki. Just think of me as yet
another acquaintance of our dear
[Summoner].

Balthus
From the looks of it, you’re a mage,
right? You’d pretty much have to be
to hang around in a library this late.
Loki
I’m just…doing a bit of searching.
Besides, I tend to get more than my
fair share of scowls when outside.

Hapi

Loki
But enough about me! You all came
in here for a reason, did you not?
It just so happens that this library is
well-stocked with emergency rations.
If your plan is to seclude yourselves
down here, you’ll be able to hide for
as long as you wish.

Balthus
Emergency rations, huh? Thanks,
that’s good to know. Doubt there’s
anything too exciting in there, though.

Loki
Hehe… Well, if fate wills it,
perhaps we’ll meet again.
Until then…

Yuri

Hapi
Hey, do you think they’ve realized
we’ve escaped yet?

Balthus
All four of us disappeared at the
same time, so they probably won’t
write it off as just a coincidence.
Whaddaya say, should we leave
Constance behind to buy the rest
of us more time to hide our trail?

Constance
Excuse me?! How can you possibly
expect to make any progress without
the pillar of the Ashen Wolf House?

Yuri

Hapi
What’s got you worried, Yuri-bird?

Yuri
Oh, well, it’s just…the more I look at
this underground library, the more
amazed I become.
But something about it feels…off.
Why did they build such a vast
library underground?
Even if there was already a cave
here, it’s not like they had to use it
for a library specifically.

Balthus
What about all the rations? Those
sound more like something you’d
find at an emergency shelter.
I mean, just look at that mountain of
food! You could feed hundreds of
people for months with that, easy.

Constance
Perhaps this place was constructed
to protect these books, no matter
what happened up above.
Even if the surface should one day
fall to ruin, this library and its books
shall still remain, forever preserved…

Yuri

Hapi
…Hm? Hey, is it just me, or is
that book…glowing?

Balthus
Looks like a real old, worn-out book…
Wait, is this cover made from iron or
something?! Damn, that’s heavy!

Constance
The letters are faded, so it’s difficult
to make out what it says… But I think
I see “The nine…realms…”

Yuri
Just being able to read it is
already impressive.

Constance
Hmm… This illustration seems to
be depicting those realms. “Múspell…
Nifl… Hel... Ljósálfheimr…”
Unfortunately, I don’t really
understand much beyond that.

Hapi
What about that thing drawn in the
middle of the nine realms? Isn’t that
the crest of the Kingdom of Askr?

Constance
It’s hard to be certain, but I think
it says, “All battles…are here…”

Yuri
What could that mean?
Unless… Are they saying that all
warfare in the nine realms will
converge in Askr?

Balthus
If what’s written there is really true,
then the people livin’ in this world…

Constance
There can only be one conclusion:
they are all trapped in a world of
eternal war.

Yuri
This is unbelievable… It’s almost
like this entire world is just one
massive Abyss!

Hapi
Ha, as if. At least the people in
Abyss can hope to one day live
above ground. But here?
The people of this world have
nowhere to run. They don’t even
realized they SHOULD be running.

Constance
Whether they wish for it or not, the
people in this world are trapped in
battles they cannot escape from.
That is the fate of the
Kingdom of Askr…

Yuri
The way this world works… Forcing
everyone into an unending war?
It’s ridiculous.
Some people don’t even have a
blade to fight with, let alone the
ability to wield it.
And yet, despite their circumstances,
they all live every day to the fullest.
…Just like the people in Abyss
we’ve been fighting to protect.

Balthus
But if the world was MADE to work
this way… Why? What reason could
anyone have to cause these battles?

Constance
Wait! This line, right here…
”The beginning of the battles…
The end… Everything is–“

Hapi
Coco, watch out!

Constance
Kyah?! Wh-what in the world?!
Th-the book suddenly burst into
flames…

Yuri
This presence… You!
Loki
Oh ho… It appears you all
found what I was looking for.
But, as much as I hate to break it to
you after your little scavenger hunt…
You humans can’t read any further.

Yuri
What…are you?
There’s an unfathomable darkness
within you–one far deeper than
any void.
Loki
Oh, don’t be so dramatic, dearie. It
won’t get me any closer to sharing
my secrets. At least…not yet.
All you need to know is that I love
few things more than having
interesting pieces on the board.
After all, the more interesting pieces
there are in play, the harder it is to
predict how they will act.

Loki
So, what kind of moves will you show
me next? Hehehe…

Balthus
Hey, wait–! Yeeeah, it was worth a
shot, I guess.

Constance
She vanished. Almost as if she
melted into the darkness…

Yuri

This world is a far more dangerous
place than we could have imagined.

Hapi
Yeah, for sure. This isn’t the time
for us to be grumbling about trivial
stuff like whether we’ll help or not.

Constance
If the Order of Heroes loses, this
world will immediately sink into an
endless darkness…
And it won’t be limited to only the
Heroes–everyone who lives in
this world will be caught up in it.

Balthus
Sounds like the King of Grappling
was called to make sure that never
happens, right? So let’s do this.

Constance
Indeed. My noble magic will no
doubt prove crucial to saving
this world from its tragic fate!

Hapi
I don’t wanna be tied down by
anything, but I’d feel pretty
terrible if I just did nothing.

Yuri
Then it’s settled. The Ashen Wolf
House will aid the Order of Heroes.
And we’ll go back to Abyss…right
after we deal with whoever is
pulling the strings behind all this!

Anna
OK, so… You want me to introduce
you to a Hero who’s in a situation
similar to yours… Is that right?

Constance
Yes, indeed! There are so many
Heroes who have been gathered
here to the Kingdom of Askr.
Surely there are others who, like me,
were victims of misfortune, yet never
lost hope in regaining their status.
I wish to speak to such a Hero–to
converse with someone with the
will to soar through the sky itself!
Anna
Wh-whoa, hold on, Constance!
I get that you’re excited, but your
face is kind of…way too close.

Constance
My apologies, Commander Anna.
I am afraid I was momentarily
overcome with excitement.

Anna
Uh huh… Hard to believe I heard you
apologize for “having ever been
born” over in the courtyard earlier…
Seriously, are you really the same
Constance? It’s like you turn into
an entirely different person at night.

Constance
Ahaha! Fret not, this is the real me!
In fact, just forget everything you saw
while I was under the sun!

Anna
R-right. So, about those Heroes
in situations similar to yours…

Constance
Do you have someone in mind? If
they have any information that shall
be useful, I would love to meet them.
Anna
Well, if you’re looking for a Hero who
is an ousted noble, maybe Virion…
No, he wasn’t really robbed of his
status. More like he gave it and his
territory up for…certain reasons.
And if I’m being honest, I REALLY
don’t think you’d get a whole lot out
of talking to him.

Anna
…Oh, wait a second! Raven!
I don’t know the full situation, but I
believe he is a former noble of Elibe.
Perhaps you two have similar stories?

Constance
Thank you for all your help,
Commander Anna!
I shall find this Raven and ask him
what efforts he is making to reclaim
his house’s status, posthaste!

Raven

Constance
Aha! There you are! I must say,
you look exactly as I imagined…
You are Lord Raven, yes?
My apologies for bothering you
so late at night. My name is
Constance von–

Raven
I’m aware of who you are, and
also that you’re from a place
called Fódlan.

Constance
Oh? You know about me?

Raven
Of course I do. When someone joins
your army, you should know their
face, at least.
…Especially in a rag-tag bunch
such as this.

Constance
Th-This presence! As I suspected,
you are no ordinary person.
Lord Raven, please pardon my
rudeness, but I would like to ask
you some questions.
You see, my family, House Nuvelle,
was one of the most prestigious noble
houses in the Adrestian Empire…
There was not a person alive who
would claim we were anything but
of good standing.
…But I lost both my parents and our
territory in a battle many years ago.
House Nuvelle was stripped of its
position, has since fallen into ruin.

Raven

Constance
However, I have never once given
up on restoring my house to its
former glory!
Surely the same is true for you as
well, Lord Raven? So won’t you
please share with me your plans?

Raven
Hmph. There’s no need to be tied
down by something that’s already
gone.

Constance
I-I beg your pardon?

Raven
Even if you somehow manage to
restore your house, it’s never going
bring back the lives that were lost.
Besides, I chose not to restore
anything. I was just out for revenge.
I doubt anything I have to say would
be helpful to someone who still has
her head in the clouds.

Constance
Ah! B-but Lord Raven! My goal is to–
Oh. He’s…gone.
He chose revenge…over restoration?
I can’t even begin to fathom…

I just don’t understand, Mercedes!

Mercedes
Oh my. Are you still feeling agitated?
Here, let’s have some tea and try to
calm down, OK?

Constance
Does he truly think restoring one’s
house and seeking vengeance are
so easily compared?!
If he was trying to make a name for
himself–that I could understand!
But revenge? Absolutely not.

Mercedes
Well, I suppose that everyone
has their own circumstances.

Lucius
Um… Excuse me. May I speak
with you for a moment?

Constance
Hm? And you are…?

Lucius
I am Lucius, a cleric once in the
service of House Cornwell…and
a retainer to Lord Raymond.

Constance
Wait…you’re a priest?
Not a priestess?

Lucius
Y-yes, that’s right…

Mercedes
Constance, please!

Constance
Oh no, I am so sorry! Please
forgive my rudeness!

Mercedes
Ahem. So, this Lord Raymond you
mentioned… Could that be Raven,
by any chance?

Lucius
Yes. Lord Raymond is going by an
alias right now.
I had heard that Lady Constance
asked Lord Raymond about his
family the other day…

Constance
Yes, I most certainly did. I wished
to know by which methods he
intended to restore his house.
However…

Lucius

Lord Raymond heard rumors that
the fall of his house was plotted by
Lord Uther, the marquess of Ostia.

Mercedes
The marquess of Ostia…? If I’m not
mistaken, isn’t that Hector’s house?

Lucius
It is. And so, Lord Raymond came to
Lord Uther’s younger brother, Lord
Hector, seeking revenge.
However, Lord Raymond was so
caught up in his hatred that he never
even questioned the rumors.

Mercedes
Meaning…the marquess of Ostia
wasn’t the one responsible, then.

Lucius
As he soon discovered. But his
pursuit of vengeance was about
more than just his hatred.
It was Lord Raymond’s way of
showing how dearly he cared
about those he had lost.

Constance
So then…those feelings were more
important to him than rebuilding
his house?

Lucius
The deaths of the people closest
to him caused Lord Raymond
immense sorrow.
So much so that hating someone
was the only way he could go on
living, it pains me to say.

Lord Raven! I have some more
questions I’d like to ask you!

Raven

Constance
In the end, what came
of your revenge?

Raven
…I realized no amount of vindication
would ever bring back the lives that
had been lost.
Even if I were to kill Hector, it would
only send another down the path of
hatred and revenge.

Constance
And yet…even after you’d given up
on revenge, you didn’t stop fighting.
Why?

Raven
I… At the very least, I wanted to
create a place for…for those who
remain.
That’s why I continued to fight.

Constance
To create a place for them…
Is…that retainer…?

Raven
…If you really think that a restored
House Nuvelle is where you belong,
that’s what you should strive for.
I’m sure it will become important to
not just you, but also the people who
care about you.

Constance
I see! Yes, that makes perfect sense!
Lord Raven, I am so grateful for your
incredibly helpful advice!
The Ashen Wolf House is the home
for those of us who live in Abyss…
But one day, when we leave it for the
surface, we will have a new place to
belong: House Nuvelle. I’m sure of it!
To create a place for everyone to call
home…
That shall be the purpose I hold as
I strive to restore House Nuvelle!
No matter what hardships may come,
I will carry out my grand ambition.
After all–I, Constance von Nuvelle,
do not know the meaning of the
word defeat! Ahahahaha!

…Well, you certainly are an odd one.
Why would a princess like yourself
be so eager to hear about Abyss?

Fjorm
As royalty, no matter how shadowed

back into the light… Unlike some.
I suppose you would call them
dwellers of the underground, far
removed from the light of day.
I believe I should learn more about
their perspective–that I should try

Not only as a member of the Nifl
royal family, but as a human being.

Yuri
All right… I’ll tell you. But I gonna warn
you, it’s hardly a pleasant story.
After hearing it, you might start to see
all the gray in that pure, righteous
world of yours.

I am prepared for that. Averting my
eyes from such truths would cast a
far darker shadow upon my heart.

Yuri
Heh, looks like my impression of you
was right on the mark. You really are
an odd one, Princess.
That said, it’d probably be best to
treat all this as the ramblings of a
scoundrel. Take it with a grain of salt.

Yuri
…And, well, that’s about it. Abyss is
where those different people all
gather and live, shoulder to shoulder.
It’s not like we’re living in that hole
because we like it, though. We’ve
all got our own circumstances.
Fjorm

Thank you, Yuri. Even after hearing
your explanation, I cannot imagine
what it must be like to–

Yuri
Don’t get the wrong idea, Princess.
Sure, it’s far from a happy story, but
that’s no reason to feel sorry for me.
Even in Abyss, there are plenty of
people who live their lives with pride
and still have hope for the future.
Fjorm
I-I’m sorry. It was foolish of me to
presume you must all be unhappy.
No one should decide that for you.

Yuri
Perhaps not, but others can certainly
decide the circumstances we find
ourselves in.
I may have ended up in the Ashen
Wolf House, but I originally planned
to join the Blue Lion House.

Fjorm
Huh? The Blue Lion House? But
that’s the house Prince Dimitri leads…

Yuri
One and the same. If I had stayed
there, my fate might have been
quite different, I suppose.
But which path would have led to a
brighter future? Honestly, even I
have no idea.

Fjorm
Um, Yuri, if you don’t mind…
Why did you…end up going to
Abyss in the first place?

Yuri
The reason I came to Abyss, huh…
Unfortunately, that’s not really a topic
I can tell people much about.

Fjorm

Yuri
…Ugh, fine. But you’re getting the
abridged version.
Back when I was still in the Blue Lion
House, I had a…disagreement with
someone from the church.
Just as I was about to be executed,
Aelfric saved me. Said there were
some “extenuating circumstances.”

Fjorm
Aelfric… He’s the monk who came to
the Kingdom of Askr with you and the
others, right?

Yuri
That’s him. Aelfric is the one who
established the Ashen Wolf House.
Guess that makes him our benefactor.
Anyway, if Aelfric hadn’t been there,
I probably would’ve been executed
by the church.
Fjorm
Was it really that serious
of a…disagreement?

Yuri
I may be a scoundrel, but you’ll find
that even scoundrels have their pride.
I couldn’t just throw that away–not
even if it meant never being able to
live under the sun again. That’s all.
And hey, the people of Abyss
accepted me without even a hint
of prejudice.
So, I made a decision. I told myself
that I’d fight to protect those people.

Fjorm
…So that’s what happened.

Yuri

All right, that’s enough. I know you’re
there, OK? Though I gotta say, never
took you for the eavesdropping type.

Dimitri

Fjorm

I apologize. It was not my intention

Yuri
Of course. I know you better
than that, at least.

Dimitri
The last time I saw you was when we
met beneath the monastery. I never
imagined we’d meet again like this.

Yuri
Yeah, sorry about all that. Living in
Abyss doesn’t leave you with many
ways to pass the time.
Even if all I was doing was trying
to keep things entertaining…
I did point my sword at the Imperial
princess, the Kingdom’s prince, and
the future leader of the Alliance.

Dimitri
Well, we never imagined there could
be such a place so far underground…

Yuri
And it’s even more impossible to
imagine anyone was living down there,
huh? Honestly, that’s pretty fair.

Dimitri
…After we pulled out of Abyss, the
Professor told me many things.
That it is overseen by Aelfric, and
how he has made it a home for those
who have nowhere else to go…

Yuri

Dimitri
I once heard about a student who
was meant to be enrolled in the Blue
Lions House, but was expelled.
Perhaps, had things gone differently,
I might have studied alongside you…

Yuri
Considering my personality, I
probably would have been chased
out sooner or later anyway.

Fjorm
Um, well…since we’re in Askr, your
prior circumstances no longer have
to tie you down.
The two of you could even study
in the same house now!

Dimitri
Well, Princess Fjorm,
with all due respect…
As it is now, I cannot imagine that
Yuri would be welcomed into the
Blue Lion House.

Fjorm
Huh? What do you mean,
Prince Dimitri?

Dimitri
The professor told me more that just
how the people of Abyss lived.
I also learned about the Ashen Wolf
House…and how you all protected
those forced into hiding down there.

Yuri

Dimitri
But Abyss is also a place of learning,
where you all gained experience and
strove to improve yourselves.
You are all living proudly already, as
students of the Ashen Wolf House.
The Ashen Wolf House is by no
means inferior to any on the surface.

Yuri
…I’ll let them know you said that.
You’re right–we don’t need the rank
of another house. The Ashen Wolf
House is already where we belong.

Dimitri
Well, that being said… I’m sure the
professor would still love to recruit
you all into one of the other houses.

Yuri
Yeah, I’m sure the professor would
try to talk us into it. And who knows,
maybe it’d even work.

Fjorm
Above ground or below, there are
opportunities to learn everywhere…
What’s important is not the place
itself, but rather what you can learn
from the people around you.

Yuri
Well said, Princess Fjorm. You
summed it up nicely.
Fjorm
I–I apologize… I didn’t mean
to speak out of turn!

Fjorm
Oh, that reminds me! I have one
more question for you, Yuri…
Does your skin look so beautiful
because you’ve lived in Abyss
for so long?

Yuri
Uh… No. Pretty sure being in
Abyss has nothing to do with it.
If I had to give a reason, I’d say
I was simply born with this
youthful beauty.

Dimitri
Youthful beauty… Wait, aren’t
you older than me?

Yuri
My, what a perfect time for me to
take a little stroll. If you need me,
I’ll be out enjoying some sunlight!

Fjorm
Yuri, wait! …He certainly left in
a hurry.

Dimitri

The Blue Lion House, the Black Eagle
House, the Golden Deer House, and…
the Ashen Wolf House.
It appears members of all four houses
have gathered here in Askr.

Fjorm
I’m sure Prince Alfonse is quite
relieved, seeing as how he now
has more allies he can rely on.

Dimitri
The students of the Ashen Wolf
House… Even here, they are
continuing to learn and improve.
I must learn from their example
and apply myself just as diligently.
Fjorm
That sounds wonderful! I’m also
trying to make the most of this
opportunity, in much the same way.
There are so many things I do not
know, but I will take it one day at a
time and always give it my all.

Argh! Lost again! Why can’t I win?!

It doesn’t matter how much power

Balthus
Hah! I’ll show you! I’m gonna win
this time for sure!

Hilda
Baltie, you really should just call it
quits at this point. How many times
have you lost to him, anyway?

Balthus
Who cares? All that matters is the
next round, and I’ve got a real good
feeing this time. Now way I’ll lose!

Joshua
That’s the spirit! After all, the real
thrill in gambling comes from
believing in your own luck.

Hilda
Geez… They’re getting all fired up
again. I wonder if my brother could
put a stop to this…
Come on, Baltie, are you really going
to act like this here as well?
You got a ticket to freedom from your
debts back in Fódlan, but you’re not
even TRYING to change your ways.

Balthus
Hmm…
Y’know, that’s actually a pretty good
point. It’s pretty nice not having any
bounty hunters out for my head.
Maybe this is the perfect opportunity
to start all over, make a fresh start.
I’ll take this chance to test myself and
polish my skills, until everyone in Askr
knows me as the King of Grappling!

Joshua
I see. Well, if that’s what you’re
decided, I certainly won’t stop you.
Buuut you do still need to pay up

all back…someday.

By the way, Baltie, I’m all for you

No, seriously. THAT’S your plan?!

Oh, speak of the devil–that guy

Hey! You! Those muscles are

Heh, not bad! Those fists of yours

every punch way down in my bones!

Helbindi
Tch… You’re not half bad yourself.
Felt almost like hitting a brick wall.

Balthus
Sounds like we’re too tough to settle
this the easy way, then. We’d just end
up with only bruises to show for it.
So, how ‘bout we try settling this
for real with a drinking contest?

Helbindi
Are you serious? There’s no way
I’m gonna lose against a fool like you!
I’ll keep up with you, drink for drink!

Oh ho… You’re a king too, huh?
In that case, how about we engage in

Boey
Princess Sharena, there’s something
I’d like to ask you…

Sharena
What’s on your mind, Boey? Wait…
You seem down for some reason,
Is everything OK?

Boey
That depends… I heard some new
Heroes were summoned from Fódlan
the other day…
…And that one of them apparently,
um, summons monsters whenever
they sigh.
Sharena
Oh, you must mean Hapi! I heard
about that too… Talk about a
surprise!

Boey
Then…are the rumors true?

Sharena
No way! I mean, I heard Yuri
joking about it, so it’s probably
just a story he likes spreading.
Sharena
Oh, I know! We should just go
and ask Hapi herself! Come on,
Boey!

Boey

Hapi
…Yeah, it’s true.
I don’t really know the reason
behind it, but whenever I sigh,
monsters show up.

Boey
I-is that so? Y-you know what, I
just remembered that I really
should be going–

Hapi
Something wrong? Doesn’t look
like you’re doing so great.

Boey
I’m not! Please, I beg you! Please…
Whatever you do, just don’t sigh while
you’re in the Kingdom of Askr!

Hapi
Well, obviously I try to be careful
about it, but it’s not like I can make
any promises.

Boey
Ugh… Monsters are the one thing
I can’t deal with.

Sharena
Don’t worry, Boey. Askr doesn’t have
any sort of monster population, so it
should be all right!

Boey
Wait, really? But you never know
for sure, right? What if they’re all
just hiding deep underground?
Hapi, sorry to press this issue so
much, but please don’t sigh. At least
not when I’m around.

Hapi
…Oh wow, look at that. I almost let
out a little sigh just now.

Boey
It’s not like you really need to
tag along, Princess Sharena.

Sharena
Don’t be silly! This is clearly
bothering you, and I’ve actually
been a bit curious about it myself.
But…if monsters really do appear,
what are you going to do?

Boey
Uh! U-um, well…

Lute
It appears you are having monster
troubles.

Sharena
Oh, Lute! Well, I wouldn’t say they’re
troubles just yet… More like there
could be trouble at some point!

Lute
I understand completely.
Your fears can be classified as 28
distinct items within 4 categories, but
most of them are entirely baseless.

Boey
Hey, you’re not going to hear me
complaining if they really ARE
baseless. That said…

Lute
Right, the phenomenon of sighing
causing monsters to be summoned…
Ordinarily, summoning monsters is
a potent magical feat–and one solely
within the domain of the dark arts.
Since it requires a considerable
amount of magical power, it isn’t
easily accomplished.

Boey
In that case, is it possible she’s not
actually summoning them, but
instead just drawing them to her?

Lute
That’s certainly the most
reasonable conclusion.

Sharena
But, like I said, monsters haven’t
been seen in Askr in…forever!
Alfonse would know for sure, but I
bet it’s been at least 50 years since
any were seen. So I think it’s be fi–

Lute
Just because there haven’t been any
sighting in 50 years is no reason to
believe that will hold true forever.
And how are we defining monsters?
Could a stray wyvern count as a
monster?
What about a manakete who can no
longer return to their human form?
Either one could be lurking nearby.

Boey
S-so you’re saying if Hapi sighs,
she might call wild wyverns here?

Lute
It’s certainly a possibility, but even
if a monster should appear, there
is no need for concern.
I’m quite accustomed to hunting
monsters. In fact, I would even
say I excel at it.

Boey
Well, I’d still rather not have any
appear in the first place. Guess we
just have to hope nothing happens…

Hmmm… What situations would make
someone sigh, anyway?

Boey
I think a lot of people sigh when
they’re disappointed or depressed.
Oh, and exasperated, of course.

Lute
Precisely. By preventing Hapi from
falling into any of those mental states,
you can prevent her from sighing.
Sharena
So, we’ll wait for any hints of those
emotions, and jump in to put a stop
to whatever is causing them!

Kris
All right, I’ve been practicing for three
days straight, so it’s time to put

funny to cheer Bernadetta up.

Wh-what?! It’s not like I can just

…And here we have two more people
who might complicate matters.

One of them is bad enough, but
together? Their view of the world

Anyone would sigh after bumping

Can you knock this off already?

Gah! W-we’ve been discovered?!

apparently holds no power in the
Kingdom of Askr.

Boey
Y-yeah, of course! Just like I
predicted, obviously.

Kingdom of Askr was home to
such terrifying monsters.
Alfonse
It shouldn’t be. This is the first time
I’ve ever seen such a creature. I’m

That’s the first time I’ve seen one.
Perhaps this is an invader from some
strange, unknown world. We’d best
be vigilant until we know more.

Gatekeeper
U-Understood!

Hapi
I’m so glad…if there really are no
monsters here, then I’m finally free

Just relax and enjoy this beautiful,
