Script[edit]

Inn dialogue[edit]

Viccus
I trust you're feeling refreshed! I have a message for you.
It said to bring Herald to Theospiti Temple without delay.
I didn't catch the name of the man who left it. And he cleared off sharpish too.
But that's what he said!

Heart-to-Heart[edit]

Eulogimenos
So, you have awakened the sealed Blade.

Your Majesty...
Nia

Your Majesty...
Mòrag

King Eulogimenos...
Zeke

Old man...
Eulogimenos
It's been quite some time since I last saw this place.
We used to play here as children, you know...
Herald's Driver
...
Eulogimenos
Tell me, do you know why it is that Theospiti Temple was destroyed?
Rex
XC2 character icon Rex.png
I haven't a clue.
Nia
XC2 character icon Nia.png
Beats me.
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
I'm afraid I do not.
Zeke
XC2 character icon Zeke.png
I know it's been in ruins since forever, but no one ever told me why.
Eulogimenos
It's because a Blade went berserk.
They say that the Blade was so powerful, its Driver couldn't hope to control it.
There was nothing anyone could do. The incident was resolved when the Driver took their own life.
With that, the Blade was sealed within its Core Crystal.
And as a warning to future generations, it was buried here in the temple where the tragedy took place.
Herald's Driver
You mean, the Blade that went berserk is...
Eulogimenos
Your suspicions are correct. The Blade was Herald.
Herald
XC2 character icon Herald.png
I have no memory of the event... But I believe it to be true.
At times, I feel something.
A kind of...limitless power, dwelling within me.
Your Majesty, you may punish me however you see fit.
Even it it means breaking my Core Crystal into a thousand pieces and burying me for all eternity.
Herald's Driver
How should I answer Herald?
Herald's Driver
I'll respect your decision.
XC2 character icon Herald.pngTrust +900
Herald
XC2 character icon Herald.png
Thank you.
Well then, Your Majesty.
Eulogimenos
Wait. I think it is a little early to pronounce judgment just yet.
And if the legends speak truth, you, Herald, could be a valuable asset in the wars to come.
Now, your Driver is the bearer of great aptitude and strength.
Above all else, they possess an unyielding will.
And need we mention that they are acting alongside the Aegis?
Your Driver today is the very opposite of your Driver of yesteryear. You will not run wild.
So, I did not come here today to seal you away.
No, all I ask is that you wield your power as you see fit, and that you serve your Driver well.
Herald

...
Herald's Driver
Herald...?
Herald
XC2 character icon Herald.png
Understood.
If that's what it takes to repent for my sins, then so be it.
Eulogimenos
Dear, oh dear. It seems it's going to take a while for her to understand.
Take care of her.
Rex
XC2 character icon Rex.png
Sure. You can count on me!
Nia
XC2 character icon Nia.png
Sure. You can count on me!
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Leave it to me, Your Majesty.
Zeke
XC2 character icon Zeke.png
Sure. You can count on me!
Herald's Driver
I'll keep you in check.
XC2 character icon Herald.png Trust +1000
Herald
XC2 character icon Herald.png
Driver...[1]
Eulogimenos
Ha ha! Just as I thought.
Listen well, Herald.
I believe your Driver trusts you deeply.
And I trust your Driver just the same.
Even if you had some recollection of the past, you need not dwell on it.
Don't let yourself be chained to the past. Become your Driver's strength.
That's all I ask.
Herald
XC2 character icon Herald.png
But still, I have to atone somehow...
Eulogimenos
I understand how you feel, but you must remember that there are many ways to atone for one's sins.
Aiding your Driver in the fierce battles to come is one such way.
Herald
XC2 character icon Herald.png
You think so...?
Rex
XC2 character icon Rex.png
Yeah, we need you, Herald.
Don't trap yourself in the past. Come with us. We'll fight together.
Nia
XC2 character icon Nia.png
Yeah, we need you, Herald.
No point crying over spilled milk. Come with us. Fight with us!
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
That's right. We need you, Herald.
The past is the past. You should leave it behind and fight at our side.
Zeke
XC2 character icon Zeke.png
Yeah, we need you, Herald.
What happened, happened. But now, we want you on our side. Come with us!
Herald
XC2 character icon Herald.png
...All right.
I'll try.
Eulogimenos
Worry not. Whatever happens, just remember: you have an esteemed Driver by your side.
Herald
XC2 character icon Herald.png
Your Majesty...thank you.
Eulogimenos
Think nothing of it. I expect great things of you.

Notes[edit]
