...
Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
So there you are, Mòrag.
...Is something wrong?
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
No, not at all. I've just been thinking.
Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
...Any particular worries?
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Ah, it's just... My brother.
Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
Emperor Niall? Is he OK?
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
I'm...concerned he'll wear himself out.
Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
The Emperor is quite young, isn't he...
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Yes. The weight of responsibility is a heavy burden for someone his age....
Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
Have you two spoken recently?
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Well, as Special Inquisitor, I send him reports almost daily...
Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
No, I mean, just...talk, like siblings do.
Chat about family stuff, things like that.
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Talk like siblings do...?
It may shock you, but neither me nor the Emperor are great at small talk.
Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
Don't overthink it.
You can talk about anything, so long as it's not work.
You should just go drop in.
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Ah, the Emperor is a very busy person...
Engaging in idle chit-chat with me... That would be a waste of his time.
Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
How do I respond?
Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
Surely he'd be happy to see his big sis.
XC2 character icon Mythra.pngTrust +200
Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
Surely even the great Emperor Niall would be happy to see his big sis!
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
...Thank you, Pyra.
Alas, my brother and I are hardly your average family.
His Imperial Majesty and his retainer, the Special Inquisitor...
Our stations differ greatly, as do our ways of life.
We couldn't possibly expect to talk like normal siblings...
Mythra
XC2 character icon Mythra.png
Oh, give me a break! You think your "stations" trump your relationship as brother and sister?
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Mythra?! When did you-
Mythra
XC2 character icon Mythra.png
I couldn't listen to you anymore.
You're family, aren't you? You and Emperor Niall.
Emperor or not, he's your brother, first and foremost.
What more is there to think about?
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
...Even so... It has been a long time since we've acted as siblings...
Mythra
XC2 character icon Mythra.png
Look at me and Pyra. We haven't exactly been in touch all that much.
And now? We're rock-solid.
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
That's not exactly...
Mythra
XC2 character icon Mythra.png
Shut it!
You being worried about your brother makes you family enough.
Your stations don't come into it!
Just woman up and be a good sister already!
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
M-mhm...
Maybe you're right...
Mythra
XC2 character icon Mythra.png
Of course I'm right. Obviously.
Just enjoy some time with your little bro and spoil him rotten. That's it.
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
...Very well. Then I will strive to be the sister Niall deserves.
Mythra
XC2 character icon Mythra.png
You better be ready the next time you two meet.
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
I will... I promise.
Mythra
XC2 character icon Mythra.png
Finally, we've made some progress.
You and Rex both get so stuck in your heads, it's infuriating.
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Ha... Thanks for the pep talk, Mythra.
Mythra
XC2 character icon Mythra.png
You're very welcome.
Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
Sounds like you don't want to see him...
XC2 character icon Pyra.pngTrust +200
Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
Hang on. Mòrag, could it be that you don't want to see him?
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
No, that's not it.
I would like to spend time with him, no question.
But I'm afraid our respective stations would get in the way...
Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
Stations...? You mean because he's Emperor?
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Indeed.
When my little brother took the throne, I volunteered to become his shield.
It was then that we cut the familial bonds between us.
Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
You poor thing...
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Please don't misunderstand. I do not regret choosing this life.
To protect my brother, and all of Mor Ardain... There is no higher joy for me.
Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
...
...As a Blade, I have no family. But I do long for the kind of relations that a family brings.
You and Emperor Niall are already connected, and more closely than you might think.
But still, you don't go to see him...? Why?
Surely there wouldn't be any harm in just talking and enjoying each other's company?
In all honesty...there's nothing I'd want more.
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
...
Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
I think Emperor Niall would enjoy a chance to talk with you, too.
I mean, isn't that what family's about?
I don't think bonds can be cut as easily as that, you know?
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
I...that is...
Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
Just try. Go see him.
Emperor, retainer... That isn't what count.
You don't need some special reason to go talk to your brother, Mòrag!
And I bet he'd appreciate it, too.
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Hah. Indeed. It may well be as you say.
It's possible that I was the one who built a wall between us.
Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
You know where to start, right? Tear down that wall!
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Yes. I'll do my best. Thank you, Pyra.
