Script[edit]

Brighid

Perceval, if I may ask... What are you looking at from a place like this?
Perceval
XC2 character icon Perceval.png
I see the city.
Brighid
XC2 character icon Brighid.png
Well, yes, I can see that... Is there something there?
Perceval
XC2 character icon Perceval.png
...The lights.
Brighid
XC2 character icon Brighid.png
The lights?
Perceval
XC2 character icon Perceval.png
Points of warmth shining in the cold hushed darkness, signifying life.
Each of them the mark of a human soul, living its life in this city.
And yet... How many of those lives can be happy ones...?
Rex

You sound like a poet sometimes, you know that, Perceval?
Nia
XC2 character icon Nia.png
You sound like a poet sometimes, you know that, Perceval?
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Perceval... The things you say sound almost like poetry sometimes.
Zeke
XC2 character icon Zeke.png
You sound like a poet sometimes, you know that, Perceval?
Perceval
XC2 character icon Perceval.png
I, a poet?
I merely state what I see before me, I do not mean to sound cryptic.

Rex
XC2 character icon Rex.png
Maybe I should ask something.
Nia
XC2 character icon Nia.png
I'll try asking something.
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Perhaps I should ask something.
Zeke
XC2 character icon Zeke.png
I think I'll ask something.
Rex
XC2 character icon Rex.png
Why is it you don't kill?
Zeke
XC2 character icon Zeke.png
Why don't you kill?
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Why is it you refuse to kill?
Zeke
XC2 character icon Zeke.png
So how come you don't kill?

A fitting question.
Rather than strike down the wicked, I prefer to strike down the wickedness in their hearts.
As such, though I do not take the lives of men...
It is not out of mercy or compassion.
Rather, death is too easy a way out.
Brighid
XC2 character icon Brighid.png
Way out?
Perceval
XC2 character icon Perceval.png
To strike down an evildoer is to take their life as payment for their sins, yes?
But I do not feel sins can be paid for so easily.
To carry on living and atoning... As penance, it is more fitting than death.
That is why I do it. Because I believe sins should be atoned for.
Rex
XC2 character icon Rex.png
Living is harder than dying...?
You really are a poet, Perceval!
Nia
XC2 character icon Nia.png
Living is harder than dying...?
You really are a poet, Perceval!
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Living is harder than dying...?
Truly you are a poet, Perceval.
Zeke
XC2 character icon Zeke.png
Living is harder than dying...?
You really are a poet, Perceval!
Perceval
XC2 character icon Perceval.png
Oh, I am no poet...
I am but one Blade.
I hope you'll join me in cutting down evildoers when the time comes.
Rex
XC2 character icon Rex.png
Why do you help people?
Nia
XC2 character icon Nia.png
Why do you help people?
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Why do you help people?
Zeke
XC2 character icon Zeke.png
So how come you help people?

Perceval

...A difficult question.
To make the world a better place... That would be an easy answer to give.
But I do not pursue such lofty goals.
Brighid
XC2 character icon Brighid.png
Why do you do it, then? Saving people, just like that time recently...
Perceval
XC2 character icon Perceval.png
Many would claim all people are equal, but it does not seem that way to me.
The rules that govern this world are still unjust and crooked...
The weak are abused by the strong, who bend morality and law to evil ends.
I find such acts distasteful, so I prefer to side with those in need.
It is as simple as that.
Rex
XC2 character icon Rex.png
So you just want to help people when you see them suffering, is that it?
That sounds like a long and difficult road to travel, but I'll walk it with you!
Nia
XC2 character icon Nia.png
So you just can't stand by and watch people suffer, eh?
That's a nice attitude. Especially if you really manage to live by it.
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
In other words, you guard the weak against the strong?
That stance agrees with me. I look forward to the work we'll do.
Zeke
XC2 character icon Zeke.png
So you strike down evildoers just 'cos it's the right thing to do?
Nice and simple. That suits me fine!
Perceval
XC2 character icon Perceval.png
Hahaha...
That means a lot. It's thanks to you that I can continue walking my path.
So I thank you, my Driver. I will be counting on you.
