Obrona
XC2 character icon Obrona.png
Oh my! Such a wonderful place!
Akhos
XC2 character icon Akhos.png
Yes, indeed... I must admit, it's a dramatic scene.
Looking at it is like a spur to my creative energy.
Obrona
XC2 character icon Obrona.png
Akhos... You think you'll write another play?
Akhos
XC2 character icon Akhos.png
Perhaps. Gazing out at a vista like this... It's like a churning sea of possibilities.
I mean, for example...
A story of a woman...who took to the skies on wings of freedom.
Obrona
XC2 character icon Obrona.png
Sounds way interesting! I wanna hear more!
Akhos! You must write that story! I can't bear it if you don't!
Akhos
XC2 character icon Akhos.png
Obrona... It's easier said than done. Ideas need to crystallize a little first.
But... Perhaps you could be my inspiration for this story?
Obrona
XC2 character icon Obrona.png
Inspiration?
Akhos
XC2 character icon Akhos.png
I mean...because you fly on wings of freedom.
You're wild and untameable. And you've already got wings.
Obrona
XC2 character icon Obrona.png
Oh... Am I now...?
Akhos
XC2 character icon Akhos.png
Why don't you try flying a little for me now? Right here?
Obrona
XC2 character icon Obrona.png
Yes! Of course!
Rex
XC2 character icon Rex.png
What should I say to Obrona?
Nia
XC2 character icon Nia.png
What should I say to Obrona?
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
What shall I say to Obrona?
Zeke
XC2 character icon Zeke.png
What should I say to Obrona?
Rex
XC2 character icon Rex.png
Flying? From here? Wait, can you actually fly?!
Nia
XC2 character icon Nia.png
Flying? From here? I didn't think you could fly...
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
You're thinking of flying from here? I didn't even know you could fly.
Zeke
XC2 character icon Zeke.png
What? You want to fly from here? You can fly? Way cool.
XC2 character icon Obrona.pngTrust +1000
Obrona
XC2 character icon Obrona.png
Heh? You really didn't know I could fly? So very silly!
Obrona’s Driver
...
Akhos
XC2 character icon Akhos.png
Well, it's not as though she has real flight, like a bird flapping its wings.
It's more like floating around on the ether flow. Those wing-like organs let her manipulate it.
Obrona
XC2 character icon Obrona.png
But unlike real flight, it's not affected by wind or weather, so I can go wherever I like!
So they really are wings of freedom!
Akhos
XC2 character icon Akhos.png
Hey, Obrona, here's an idea... Why don't you try taking to the skies with your Driver?
Obrona
XC2 character icon Obrona.png
With my Driver? But, Drivers can't fly!
Akhos
XC2 character icon Akhos.png
Can't you bear them up in your arms?
The heroine in my story was going to soar the heavens with her loyal companion.
That'd be incredibly dramatic, don't you think?
Obrona
XC2 character icon Obrona.png
Now that you mention it...yes!
If you want to take the skies on Obrona Airways, just call me!
Rex
XC2 character icon Rex.png
Ah...I'm OK for now...
Nia
XC2 character icon Nia.png
Hmmm...nah...
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
No, I don't think so.
Zeke
XC2 character icon Zeke.png
I laugh in the face of danger! But, no thanks.
Obrona
XC2 character icon Obrona.png
What? No?! You trembling mouse!
I promise to try not to drop you! I'm not all that clumsy, you know!
Akhos
XC2 character icon Akhos.png
Hey, wait a moment.
That would be even more dramatic. The heroine drops her friend... Oh, the pathos!
Yes, the muses have called out to me, and I've heard!
Obrona’s Driver
?!
Obrona
XC2 character icon Obrona.png
So, she will drop her friend?
Akhos
XC2 character icon Akhos.png
That's right. Her companion will be dashed on the rocks below, like a bag of wet rice.
Now come on, Obrona. It's time you tried taking your Driver for a spin!
Reach the highest peak, then let them go, into the Cloud Sea below!
Obrona
XC2 character icon Obrona.png
OK! Sounds like a great idea!
Rex
XC2 character icon Rex.png
Obrona! You'd better be joking!
Nia
XC2 character icon Nia.png
Hey, not so fast! I wouldn't want to fly without Dromarch.
There's no way you can hold up me and furbag here.
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Wait a moment!
...I...just remembered something I have to do. Very urgent imperial business!
Zeke
XC2 character icon Zeke.png
W-whoa there!
Wouldn't you rather take Akhos? I mean, you'd cramp my style.
Akhos
XC2 character icon Akhos.png
Come on, this isn't an offer that one can refuse. I'm writing the ultimate comedy here. Your help is appreciated.
Obrona
XC2 character icon Obrona.png
No doubt about it! I can't miss out on the chance to be immortalized in one of your tales, Akhos.
Rex
XC2 character icon Rex.png
It's true that you're quite the free spirit.
Nia
XC2 character icon Nia.png
You're my kind of girl, Obrona. Living your own way.
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
You're a free spirit, Obrona. I like that.
Zeke
XC2 character icon Zeke.png
You don't let reality hold you back. I guess you're a free spirit like me.
XC2 character icon Obrona.pngTrust +900
Obrona
XC2 character icon Obrona.png
Of course I am! I'm the very picture of freedom!
Although...sometimes I wonder whether what I have is actually real freedom.
Obrona’s Driver
?
Obrona
XC2 character icon Obrona.png
I mean, a Blade always shares the fate of their Driver, right?
Doesn't that mean we're kind of tied down by our Drivers?
You can hardly call that freedom.
Akhos
XC2 character icon Akhos.png
Obrona, you surprise me.
Obrona
XC2 character icon Obrona.png
What? How?
Akhos
XC2 character icon Akhos.png
That's awfully insightful. It seems the genius of my story has inspired you in turn.
I always thought that you were just fired by raw, unthinking desires and whimsical emotion.
Obrona
XC2 character icon Obrona.png
Akhos! You're skating on thin ice!
I'm actually very thoughtful...underneath...
Like, uh...say I've got some of my favorite Tantalese Porridge here.
And let's say...Driver is about to eat it.[1]
My stomach says, "eat it!"... But my conscience says, "let my Driver have it."
Real freedom is being able to choose whether I sit back and let them eat it, or ask them to let me have some.
And that choice is up to me, Obrona. So in a way, I'm the Driver of me!
Being able to choose...that's real freedom!
Akhos
XC2 character icon Akhos.png
Yes. You can make choices. And those choices lead to consequences.
All of that is under your control.
Although... I have to say I can't picture you making either of those choices.
If I was to bet on it, I'd have said you'd have punched your Driver and taken all the grub for yourself.
Would you really consider any other option?
Obrona
XC2 character icon Obrona.png
Eheheh... Realistically, that probably is what I'd decide to go for...
Rex
XC2 character icon Rex.png
But in the end, that just means you're being selfish!
Nia
XC2 character icon Nia.png
Hang on, doesn't that just mean you're being selfish?!
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
But in the end, that simply means you're being selfish!
Zeke
XC2 character icon Zeke.png
Hold it. Doesn't that just mean you're being selfish?!
Obrona
XC2 character icon Obrona.png
W-well... Choosing to be selfish is a kind of freedom too!
Not being tied down by anything... Living for myself...
Not doing anything nasty and boring! Only doing fun things!
That's the sort of life I want!
Obrona’s Driver
...
Akhos
XC2 character icon Akhos.png
Yes, yes... You're the ideal inspiration for my free-spirited heroine...
This is going to be the greatest comedy of all time!
Obrona
XC2 character icon Obrona.png
Well, that settles it. I'll keep doing whatever I want!
Otherwise Akhos's story would be ruined!
