??? Aaannnd...gotcha! All right, Prince
Alfonse, time for a little game of
guess who! Heehee... Go on, guess!

Alfonse
H-hey! Whoever it is had better
stop fooling around!
??? Tsk, tsk! Where is your patience, my
charming, young prince? I'll need to
hear your answer first, my darling!

Alfonse
Fine... Then it must be...Charlotte?

Charlotte
How'd you know?! You must have
recognized the warmth and charm
of your beloved Charlotte!

Alfonse
Your voice gave it away, honestly.
Now, would you mind letting go of
me...please?
I'm not sure where you've gotten
the idea that you're my beloved
or I'm your darling...

Charlotte
Do you really need an explanation?
Because we get along so well!

Alfonse
Ah...right. Well, we should always
endeavor to strengthen our bonds...
Now, if you don't mind, I must
be going now.

Charlotte
Hmph! Acting all high and mighty...
Well, you won't be able to resist
my charms forever!

Benny
Still at it even in Askr, huh? I guess
it's true: some things never change...

Orochi
Where there's royalty, you'll find
Charlotte performing that act
of hers.

Charlotte
Royalty's royalty, Askran or not,
so why should I act any different?
I simply MUST marry into a family
that's well-off. If I have to do so
in another world, that's fine by me!
Plus the prince is so kindhearted
and full of life...and of course, most
importantly, the heir to the throne!

Nyx
Hasn't Prince Xander scolded you
about your little "damsel in distress" act?

Charlotte
Rrrr... Is it so WRONG for a girl to
pursue her dreams? Why don't you
all mind your own business?
Prince Alfonse is the one—I know it!
Now, after all my preparation, it's my
time to finally marry into money!

Orochi
He's "the one," is he? Hm...

Benny
I hear the prince is no fool... What if
he's seen through the game you're
playing already?

Charlotte
Oh, please. The Order of Heroes
has no idea what I'm really like.
As far as they know, I'm just sweet,
innocent Charlotte. And we're going
to keep it that way, aren't we?
...AREN'T we?!

Nyx
Sweet and innocent are the last
words I'd use to describe you.

Charlotte
You're one to talk. I'm not the only
one who's more than meets the eye.
...I'll tell you what. Why don't we all
take this opportunity to re-examine
ourselves, then, hm?
New world, new us. What do you
say to that?

??? うふっ…だぁ~れだ♪

アルフォンス
え、君はいったい…?
あれ、う…動けない!
??? だぁ~め、ですよぉ。
私が誰かを当ててくれないと。
目隠しは、解いてあげませ~ん。

アルフォンス
この声は…シャーロッテかな?

シャーロッテ
だぁ~いせ~いかぁ~い♪
あ・な・た…のぉ
シャーロッテでぇす!

アルフォンス
やっぱりそうだったんだね。
突然だからびっくりしたよ…
でも、あなたのシャーロッテって
どういう意味で…

シャーロッテ
ふふっ、言葉通りの意味ですよぉ。
私とアルフォンス王子は
とーっても仲良しでしょ?

アルフォンス
な、なるほど。うん、節度をもって
絆を深めることはいいことだと思うよ。
じゃあ、僕は訓練があるから…

シャーロッテ
アルフォンス王子…
身持ちは堅そうだけど
脈はあると見た…!

ブノワ
シャーロッテ…
お前はアスク王国に来ても
相変わらずだな。

オロチ
いつもの玉の輿狙いか?
懲りないのう…

シャーロッテ
どうして懲りる必要があんの!?
たとえ、ここが異界でも
私はなんとしても玉の輿に
乗らなくちゃいけないのよっ。
アルフォンス王子、スレてなくて
いいわよね。なんと言っても王族だし!
ここで一番の狙い目じゃない!?

ニュクス
貴方、前にもマークス王子に
叱られていたわよね。
軍の風紀を乱すな、って。

シャーロッテ
うっ! 別に風紀を
乱しているわけじゃないわよ!
恋愛することは自由でしょ?
今回はうまく行きそうな気がするのよ。
念願の玉の輿はすぐそこなのっ!

オロチ
そう、うまくいくかのう…

ブノワ
早々に本性が露見すると思うが…

シャーロッテ
…うっさいわね。
まだ特務機関の連中には
バレてないっつーの。
あんたたちが余計なことを
言わない限り、私は可憐な令嬢英雄
シャーロッテで押し通せるのよ。

ニュクス
可憐…令嬢…
貴方の本性からは
一番遠い言葉が出たわね。

シャーロッテ
だいたい、私だけじゃなくない?
あんたたちも、中身と見た目に
落差がありすぎるのよ。
いい機会だからアスク王国で
その落差を解消するのはどう?

Charlotte
You’ve always had trouble making
a first impression, haven’t you?

Benny
I guess you could say that. Folks take
one look at me and assure I’m some
kind of ruffian.

Charlotte
Have you tried smiling when you
introduce yourself? If you do, they’ll
see how sweet you really are, I bet!

Benny
Huh. That easy, is it?

Charlotte
As for you, Nyx… Did I overhear
Princess Ylgr bragging about her
”new best friend,” hmm?
You do realize she thinks she’s
finally met a Hero her age, right?

Nyx
Not my problem! I’m not responsible
for what she thinks.

Charlotte
And what happens when she finds
out that you’re actually an adult?

Nyx
Well, I don’t suppose I can keep
up the child act forever…

Charlotte
Maybe you’ll get better with practice!
It worked before, right? You said you
wanted to play outside… Remember?

Nyx
Ugh. I wish I could forget…

Charlotte
All I’m saying is, if how you act
doesn’t match your look, it will
only confuse people!

Orochi
Right. There’s no way for an average
person to tell Nyx is, in face, cursed.

Nyx
And as for you, Orochi… Under that
feminine mystique, you’re a prankster
deep down!
We’re not so different from one
another! We’re all in this together!

Orochi
I beg your pardon! I’m an adult,
thank you very much! I am serious,
mature, no-nonsense–

Charlotte
Would an adult get so worked up
over something like this?
Come on! Can any of you give
acting a try? Don’t be scared
to try something new!
Just follow my lead, and you’re
sure to succeed! There’s nowhere
to go but up!

Benny
I’m not so sure…

Orochi
Despite your enthusiasm, I fear
fate may have other plans…

Benny
As much as I’ve tried–and
I have–I just can’t get a forced
smile look natural on me.

Charlotte
Don’t give up so quickly! You have
to give it time. You’ve only just
started trying!
Anna
Were you hurt during the last battle,
Benny? Get yourself checked out.
That grimace tells me you’re in pain.

Benny
Oh, er…I, uh…I just stubbed my toe.
…That’s all.

Benny
I never was much of an actor,
and I keep on proving it, over
and over again…

Charlotte
I suppose we all have our strengths
and weaknesses… And you, Nyx?

Nyx
Things could have gone better.

Ylgr
I’m so glad to have finally met a
Hero who’s near the same age
as me!

Nyx
Uh-huh! I really like playing
together and having fun… I wish
we could do it all the time.
I hate it every time we have
to stop…

Ylgr
I feel exactly the same. But we don’t
need to worry about that yet! We’ve
got plenty of time!

Nyx
Right… Plenty of time…
…She’s so innocent. Her eyes
remind me of how my own once
looked a long time ago.

Charlotte
So you told her the truth, then?

Nyx
My conscience is overburdened
as it is. I don’t need one more thing
hanging over my head.

Orochi
Hmm… Then it is as I foresaw.

Charlotte
Ugh. So you failed as well?

Orochi
Everything was going as planned…
That is, until this dragon named
Xane appeared.
I tried to keep a straight face through
his whole impersonation act, but it
was just too good…
I laughed so hard I CRIED! Haha…
I’m laughing simply recalling it now!
Heh heh heh… Hahaha-HAHA!

Charlotte
Get a hold of yourself. There’s no
way anything was that funny.
…You know what you three need?
A lesson in good old-fashioned
tenacity! Now, watch and learn!

Alfonse
Oh, hello again, Charlotte. How’s the
ankle holding up?

Charlotte
Oh my, how kind of you to ask, my
sweet, darling prince! I’m very well,
thank you!

Alfonse
Yes, well, I would not be doing
my duty were I not to look after
the health of our Heroes.
If your ankle gets any worse, do be
sure to visit one of the healers we
have in the castle.

Charlotte
No one’s ever been so worried over
my well-being! Such compassion…
it’s enough to make one swoon!

Nyx
She’s not subtle in the slightest, but
she DOES manage to keep a straight
face the whole time, I’ll give her that.

Benny
I think she honestly believes that
he might be the one… Wow.

Anna
Well done today, Heroes! Especially
you, Charlotte. Most impressive!
I could hardly believe what I was
seeing when you charged that poor
knight head-on!

Charlotte
Turning faces to pulp is a good
way to relieve stress!

Anna
Uh…huh. Right. Well, looks like
you’re ready for the next battle!
Remember: health is wealth!

Charlotte
Whatever you say, Commander!
Speaking of health, I could do
with some grub… I’m starving!

Benny
And who’s this? That doesn’t sound
like the damsel in distress I know.

Orochi
Word of this daring display will surely
reach the ears of the prince…

Charlotte
Yeah, well, I guess I’ve given
up on pretending, then.

Nyx
I suppose that’s tue…But why the
sudden change of heart?

Charlotte
Well, in my rush to marry into
money, I forgot one little detail…
The whole point is to be able to
support my family, but they’re all
back home in Nohr…

Orochi
I suppose Anna has yet to solve the
problem of inter-world coin transfer.
…I’m sure she’s working at it.

Charlotte
Well, on top of that, once we’ve
returned peace to Askr, we’ll be
sent back home, right?
So, why should I go through the
trouble of finding a rich man to
marry here when…it can’t last?

Benny
Fair enough… We were brought here
to help Askr, after all. It’d be best
for us to stay focused on that.

Charlotte
I suppose you’re right…
But wait a minute! With summoning…
it must work in both directions, right?
If I DID find a husband, you could
send both of us back to Nohr, right,
[Summoner]?!
If I can find someone savvy enough
to earn us good money back home,
we’ll be set for life!

Nyx
…Are you listening to yourself?

Charlotte
Quiet, Nyx! I’ve got to devise the
perfect plan for luring in my ideal
future husband!

Benny
Here we go again…

Orochi
I thought that she had finally grown
tired of keeping up appearances.
I see now I was wrong.

Nyx
We’re all creatures of habit.
Breaking cycles we’ve spent our
lifetimes perfecting is not easy.
Whatever we do, regardless of how
we try to conceal our motives, our
true selves always show through.

Orochi
*sigh* Maybe we are not so different
from Charlotte after all…
But as long we stay true to ourselves,
however we find that to be, we are
sure to achieve our dreams.

Peony
Hello there! I’m Peony. You must be
one of the recently summoned
Heroes, right?

Nyx
Nyx. Did you need something?

Peony
Well, I’ve seen you around, but I
noticed that you’re always alone.

Nyx
I like it that way.

Peony
Hmm… I guess there’s no need to
worry, then.
I thought you might want someone to
talk to, but if not, that’s fine too!
Tell you what: if you ever need a
good dream, just call and I’ll drop
on by.

Nyx
It’s kind of you to think of my
feelings…
But I do not deserve your kindness,
nor anyone else’s.
I must be allowed to atone for my
sins in my own way.
Peony
Nyx, that’s–hold on! Geez, she’s
quick.
(She may try to hide it, but it’s clear
she’s carrying a heavy burden…)

Henry
Nya ha ha! That Nyx is so gloomy, she
makes me look well-adjusted! I can
barely see her in all that darkness.

Tharja
Just goes to show you how strong
the curse is. It’s far from ordinary.

Henry
This is just begging for a full
investigation. Could be the
discovery of a lifetime!
What kind of crazy stuff would invite
a curse like that? I’m DYING to know!

Nyx
You…want to research my curse?

Tharja
To make a long story short, yes.
I’m a dark mage from Plegia–you
could say I’m an expert in curses.
I know what I’m getting into. You
don’t need to worry about my safety.

Henry
I don’t really care what happens to
either of you–I’m just here to learn
more about that curse!

Nyx
Let me be clear: my curse is neither
for your education nor your
entertainment.
As mages well-versed in the dark
arts, you should know better than
most how dangerous they can be.

Henry
Don’t need to tell me twice. Hey,
you’re kinda cranky, huh? Want
some candy?

Nyx
You do realize that the curse has
only affected my physical age, right?
Bribing me with candy won’t work.

Henry
Just trying to get on your good side!
This will be a lot easier if you
cooperate.

Nyx
Fine, fine. Do your research on my
curse. But remember this…
I won’t be held responsible for what
happens to you.

Henry
You call that a curse? People have
been looking for the fountain of
youth for ages.
What’s the big deal? If anything,
she’s been freed from a curse–
the curse of aging!

Tharja
Hmm…

Henry
What is it?

Tharja
I think I may know who cursed Nyx…

Nyx
So you’d managed to deduce who
cursed me?

Tharja
I have.
You said that you stopped aging
after you cast a curse on a large
number of people, right?

Nyx
Not just any curse. It was one of
terrible power and potency.
I was immature and went too far–
robbing my victims of their dreams
in the process.
As punishment for my excess, I was
cursed with an eternal reminder of
my sins.

Henry
Curses don’t just come out of
nowhere, though.
Someone went out of their way to
curse you! Like, you specifically.

Tharja
Indeed. And from what you’ve told
us, I can make only one conclusion.
The person who cursed Nyx…was
Nyx herself.

Nyx
But…how?

Tharja
Without realizing, you may have done
it as a kind of last resort.
By stopping you in your tracks, your
conscience prevented you from
falling even further.

Henry
Well, one of your victims could have
cursed you with their dying breath…
But I don’t think a curse this potent
could be prepared on such short
notice, ya know?
They didn’t put up much of fight,
right? Nya ha ha! The answer seems
pretty clear to me.

Nyx
I… I cursed myself?

Henry
Not really the punishment I would
have chosen, but I get the idea.
You’ve frozen yourself in time so that
you can’t move on from the past.
Yeesh, that must have been some
curse! I’ve cast plenty of curses
and never reacted that strongly!

Nyx
I suppose it does, in a way, make
sense. But if it is true…
If my subconscious did, in an attempt
to prevent further harm, inflict this
curse on me…
Then that is all the more reason why
I cannot lift it. It is a direct result of
my actions. It’s the price I must pay.

Tharja
And how long will you force yourself
to relive the past? To be chained
down by it?
Remorse is all well and good, but
what’s done is done.
Your mind still grows, but you cannot
truly live until you learn to move
forward.

Henry
Remorse, huh? You’ll have to tell me
what that feels like sometime, nya
ha!

Tharja
One of these days, Henry, I’m sure
you’ll find out.

??? Ngh… Why does my body ache so
much?
Wait… Are these wrinkles? Have I…
Have I aged?!
I’m not seeing things, am I? If I could
just find a mirror…
I can’t believe it… I’m old and frail…
And yet, this is the happiest I’ve
been in my entire life.

Nyx
Hm? I’m back in bed… And my
wrinkles–they’re gone!
So it was just a dream…

Peony
A good dream? Sounds nice, but it
wasn’t me!

Nyx
Hmm. Given your offer when we
first met, I was sure it was you.
Then again, I suppose the ljósálfar
don’t force good dreams upon the
unwilling…
Peony
Oh, Nyx. You have plenty of good
dreams within you already!
All you need is a little nudge. The
rest takes care of itself.

Nyx
As I said before, I have no right to
experience such pleasure.
How can I enjoy a good dream
when I stole them from so many
others?

Peony
Everyone deserves to have a good
dream every now and then!
It’s true that you can’t restore the
happiness of dreams past…
But you sure as heck can help
people realize their dreams in
the future!
By helping others discover their
dreams, you might just find you own.

Nyx
My own dream, hm?
Sooner or later, I will have to face
the reality of what I did to those
people.
When that day finally comes, will
I remain frozen in time…
Or will the curse set me free?

Rinkah
Hey there, pal! So you finally came
to join me in Askr, huh? Took you
long enough.

Charlotte
Don’t call me that! Someone might
hear you. And it’s not like I’m here
because I want to be.

Rinkah
I see your bark is still as strong as
your bite. What happened to the
cutesy act?

Charlotte
Just shut your mouth! If someone
overhears you, my dream is as good
as dead.

Rinkah
I’m just speaking the truth. It’s not
my fault if you don’t like it.

Sharena
Well, if it isn’t Rinkah and Charlotte!
I didn’t know you two were close.

Charlotte
Oh, um… How wonderful to see you,
Princess Sharena!
You are quite perceptive. Rinkah and
I are indeed besties! Heehee!

Rinkah
We started off on the wrong foot, but
now we see eye to eye. She’s a
trusted friend.

Sharena
That’s great to hear. I hope you’ll be
able to say the same of me someday
soon!
I shouldn’t keep Alfonse waiting for
long, though. Take care, you two!

Rinkah
Hah. “Besties,” was it?

Charlotte
I said shut it! Even I know how
ridiculous this act is. I do get tired
of it now and then.

Rinkah
They why do it?

Charlotte
Isn’t it obvious? Men can’t help but
be attracted to a damsel in distress.
Even if the damsels they want to
swoop in and save only exist in fairy
tales…

Rinkah
The Order of Heroes works with
plenty of princesses who are more
than meets the eye.
I’ll ask Commander Anna to introduce
us to one. I bet it’ll be a real eye-
opener for you.

Nice to meet you. I’m Princess
Caeda of Talys. I look forward
to our sparring session today.

Charlotte
(Ugh. That smile is too perfect.
How does she get her teeth so
white?)

Caeda
Um… Is something amiss?

Charlotte
Oh, uh… No! Not at all! The pleasure
is all mine. I’ll do my best today.
Heehee!
(So this is a bona fide princess,
huh? You may think you’re better
than me, but I’ll show you!)

Caeda
Oh my. Charlotte, are you hurt?

Charlotte
I’m–ugh–fine! I just, uh, might have
sprained my ankle. Teehee, I’m such
a klutz!

Caeda
Don’t push yourself too hard. Let’s
take a break, shall we? Here, I have
a blanket you can lie down on.
I’m glad I had it with me! It caught
my eye in town the other day. I hope
it’s as comfortable as it looks!
Anyway, I’ve been told you’ve only
recently arrived in Askr. Please don’t
be afraid to ask me anything.

Charlotte
Why, thank you, Princess! Truly, your
benevolence knows no bounds!

Charlotte
(Who is this girl? She doesn’t seem
to have a single conceited bone in
her body…)
(There’s no way someone this pure
can exist outside of fairy tales. No
way!)
(I’m gonna get to the bottom of this
mystery if it’s the last thing I do…)

Caeda
Oh, I hate to impose, but we’re about
to prepare dinner and could use a
hand if you’re feeling up to it.

Charlotte
Think nothing of it–I’m feeling better
already! Just point me to the kitchen
and I’ll gladly get to work!
(This hoity-toity royal can’t possibly
hope to match my cooking skills.)
(I’ll show you that your silver spoon’s
got nothing on a lifetime of hard
work!)

Charlotte
My, what a wonderful assortment of
fish! Please, Princess, allow me to
prepare–

Caeda
Oh, that’s quite alright. Talys is an
island kingdom, so I’m more than
comfortable cleaning fish.

Charlotte
What?! Er, I mean–Princess, surely
you’ve never dirtied your hands with
such menial work…

Caeda
Everyone in Talys must learn to treat
the ocean’s bounty with care and
respect.
As a child, I hated being cooped up
in the castle, so I went out of my
way to go on adventures.
I was a bit of a wild child, much to
the chagrin of my minders… But
what I learned was priceless.

Charlotte
Uh, I see… Well, why don’t I set the
table while you work on the fish?
(Shouldn’t get too far away, though…
I think I can spy on her from here.)
(What the–that was the most
masterful cut I’ve ever seen!
Not a scrap is going to waste!)

Caeda
Gather round, everyone! Get it while
it’s hot!

Ross
Oh, is Princess Caeda making dinner
tonight? I knew I smelled something
amazing!

Gatrie
You said it. This is a meal fit for a
king…made by none other than a
princess!

Ross
There’s this loving warmth to it that
I just can’t put my finger on.
I bet this is close to what my mom’s
cooking would have tasted like had
she been around to cook…

Gatrie
I’m telling you–you find someone
with cooking skills this good, you
better put a ring on that finger!

Caeda
Now, now, let’s focus on the present,
shall we? Please help yourself,
Charlotte.

Charlotte
Sure…
(Hmm…)
(Hmm?!)

Caeda
Is it not to your liking?

Charlotte
N-no, it’s just… How do I put this?
This dish feels kind of like a warm
embrace…

Caeda
Oh, good. I was afraid the extra herbs
might have affected the taste.
I added them to your stew to help
that sprain heal a bit faster.

Charlotte
(This woman is no princess… She’s a
goddess! A saint! A living fairy tale!)
(I doubted Rinkah at first, but I just
might have to eat my words…)

Rinkah
So, what do you think? Princess
Caeda is the real deal, huh?

Charlotte
Yeah, yeah. I can’t deny everything
I heard and saw. She’s something
else, all right.

Rinkah
She definitely has the grace and
looks of a princess, but she also
backs it up with actions.
I hear she can even convert enemies
into allies with just a short chat.
Incredible, right?

Charlotte
Geez. Talk about raising the bar.
(Then again… If she really is all
she’s cracked up to be…)

Rinkah
It’s time to face facts: an imitation
will never surpass the real thing.
Isn’t that all the more reason to
drop the act and just be yourself?

Charlotte
Ha. Ahahaha! Oh, Rinkah, dear sweet
Rinkah…
Why would I stop now when I’ve
found the perfect model to emulate?

Rinkah
Hang on, what?

Charlotte
Princess Caeda is grace and charisma
personified! No eligible bachelor
could ever resist that!
If I follow her example, they’ll be
eating out of my hand as happily
as they ate her stew!

Rinkah
That wasn’t really the lesson I was
hoping you’d learn…

Charlotte
Thanks, Rinkah! The rich and royal
better watch out, because I’m back
on the hunt!

Fjorm
Excuse me. Is Anna here?

Anna
Ah, Princess Fjorm! Welcome,
welcome! And is that the new Hero
from Hoshido I spy next to you?

Orochi
That’s right. I am Orochi, a humble
diviner.

Fjorm
Orochi mentioned needing materials
for her work, and we were hoping
you might be able to help us.

Anna
I see, I see… Well, I’m happy to say
that you’ve come to the right place!
Please, take a look around!

Orochi
…Wow. I heard you had quite the
assortment of wares, but this might
actually be everything I need.

Anna
That’s Anna & Company for you.
The Askr Branch of the Ylisse
Division is here to serve!

Orochi
So it is, so it is. Thank you for
introducing me to such a useful
establishment, Princess Fjorm.
Why don’t I repay your kindness
with a fortune? How’s your love
life been treating you lately?
Fjorm
Oh, um… Th-that’s very kind of you
to offer! But I, uh… I haven’t given it
much thought, to be perfectly honest!

Orochi
Haha! Your modesty will serve
you well…though I daresay your
acting could use a bit of work.

Anna
So, wait a second… Diviners are
basically fortune-tellers, right?

Orochi
We are that and so much more.
Our charms repel evil, and our
cards lay fate itself bare.

Anna
Uh huh… Speaking of fate, I bet you
could make a tidy profit if you had
the right partner. How about it?
Your fortune-telling can bring in more
customers, and in exchange I’ll cut
you a deal on supplies!

Orochi
Oooh, that’s certainly a tempting
offer. And exactly what I’d expect
from a merchant as skilled as you.
I still need time to train and battle,
but so long as this doesn’t interfere…
Very well, I accept.

Anna
Great! It’s a deal, then.
Welcome to Team Anna!

Fjorm
Oh my, that’s quite a crowd in
front of Anna’s shop. Could this
be thanks to her new venture?

Anna
Hi there, Princess Fjorm! Not too
bad for the first week, huh?
Orochi’s fortune-telling operation
has been packed for days!
Some fortune-loving Heroes
have even gathered to see
what all the hubbub is about.

Sumia
Plucking petals is one thing, but
Orochi’s techniques really are in
a league of their own!
Who knew other fortune-telling
methods could be so interesting?

Fjorm
I suppose you could call
this an untapped market…

Sanaki
Are we there yet? O-oh, we are?
Hmpf. Well then, present to me
the one called Orochi!

Orochi
That would be me. What can
I do for you, young lady?

Sanaki
I should think one in your profession
would hardly need ask. Regardless,
I am here to have my fortune told!

Orochi
I see. Well then, let’s start with
your name.

Sanaki
You stand before Sanaki Kirsch
Altina, Empress and Apostle of
Begnion.

Orochi
An excellent name, ringing clearly
with the authority you carry.
But, if I may ask…why do you have
need of my services? Surely an
empress has a court diviner or two?

Sanaki
The inner workings of my court are
a matter of my own discretion.
…But if you must know, my older
sister told fortunes before she
found her true calling.
I’ve never asked her to tell mine,
and I am most certainly not about
to start doing so now.

Orochi
It can be difficult to ask family to peer
into our own futures, no matter how
experienced in the art they might be.

Sanaki
Well, from what I can tell, she heard
whispers of the future… Hints and
visions of what was to transpire.

Orochi
Hmm… More of a soothsayer than
a fortune-teller, then. Now, show
me your palm.
We will find a story of ups and downs
etched within those lines–a story that
continues to this very day.

Sanaki
My palm… Like this?

Orochi
Yes, exactly. Now then… Hmm…
It is plain to see that you are
well-loved by your retainers.
…But I detect a distinct lack of
energy. Have you had trouble
sleeping lately?

Sanaki
As a matter of fact…I have been
completely incapable of growing
accustomed to my bedchamber.

Orochi
In that case, I recommend setting this
charm near your bed at night. Its
magic should help you fall asleep.

Sanaki
A charm? Hmm… Very well, I shall
use it this very night. Thank you.

Orochi
Of course! Please call upon me
whenever you wish, Empress.

Fjorm
I thought you mainly focused on
fortune-telling, but the charms you
make are also amazing!

Orochi
Heh, I’m glad you like them. Despite
our title, a diviner’s true speciality lies
in our charms, not telling fortunes.

Fjorm
I must admit, I’m not entirely certain
where the line between charms and
spells is drawn…

Orochi
Hmm… I’d say the biggest difference
is likely the extent to which each can
interact with the physical plane.
While magic often has very clear and
tangible effects, charms focus more
on imparting a certain frame of mind.

Fjorm
So… It’s more a mental thing?

Orochi
Exactly! They serve as a catalyst for
positive thinking. A way to lift the
spirit and help someone out of a rut.
Take Benny, for example. Have you
ever notice the handmade charms
he carries to ward off bad luck?

Fjorm
I can’t say I have, but I think I might
see the appeal of keeping something
like that close at hand.

Orochi
Despite being made of all sorts of
different materials, those charms of
his have the same effect as mine.
Namely, holding those helps him feel
safer–and to remain calm, no matter
what manner of trouble befalls him.
And, in a way, isn’t staying calm
exactly what a person needs to
stay safe on the battlefield?
Fjorm
Ah ha! So you could call them a sort
of protective charm, right?

Orochi
Indeed. Though, if we follow that
logic, you have quite a formidable
charm yourself, Princess.

Fjorm
I do? But I don’t think I’ve ever
purchased any from you–or even
made my own, for that matter…

Orochi
No, no, no. I meant your lance! After
all, that weapon has protected you in
more ways than one…

Fjorm
Are you saying that my lance, Leiptr,
is a...protective charm?

Orochi
I am indeed. Even from here, I can
sense the warm thoughts imbued
within it.
But not just thoughts–I also feel
the weight of its history, and the
will of your ancestors…
They are always at your side, ready
to lend their support and protection.
Fjorm
Legends says that this lance was
carved from the side of Nifl’s most
sacred mountain.
My older brother, Hríd, was to
become its bearer, but he
entrusted that duty to me.

Orochi
He clearly believed you were more
than worthy to bear it. And just look
at how right he was!
Even I have heard tales about the
incredible bravery you showed while
protecting the Kingdom of Ice.
Surely your brother’s faith in you,
embodied by that lance, helped you
through those dark times.

Fjorm
You’re right. I have drawn strength
from Leiptr on many occasions…
And now I know how. This was very
enlightening, Orochi. Thank you.

Orochi
As extensions of ourselves, the
objects around us are all imbued
with our hopes and dreams.
Diviners may excel at strengthening
that link, but anyone can create it.
Even in a weapon such as a lance.
Treasure that connection, and it
will never let you down. That much,
I can promise you.

Fjorm
I understand. I will take these words
of wisdom to heart.

Orochi
I’m glad to hear that, Princess.
And hey–if anyone asks, now you
can also explain the difference
between charms and spells!

Splitting the sea and scaring off the

someone as strong as him.

Fae
B-but… What about all those stories?

Draug
You can’t take everything you hear
at face value. Sometimes, stories
are meant simply for entertainment.

Nowi
Aww… I guess we did get a bit
carried away, huh…

Draug
…Hey, you know what? I’m pretty

just GIVING it away?!

Nowi
Let’s go, Fae! Last one there’s

Benny
Aaand they’re off. Much appreciated,

Draug
Think nothing of it. To be honest,
seeing that… It actually reminded
me a little of old times.
You see, I’ve also been painted
in a similar light by excitable
youngsters.

Benny
Huh. You don’t say?

Draug
I do! Everything from “giving no
ground, even when faced with a
hundred charging men…”
…to “sending an entire army soaring
over the horizon with a single sweep
of his lance.”
Each story was more ridiculous than
the last. It started off embarrassing,
and only got worse from there.

Benny
That does sound oddly familiar…

Draug
But you know what? I’m glad to have
met a kindred spirit because of it. We
