Final Uncap
Gawain was an irreverent knight, believing steadfastly in his own superiority. He once challenged a magician to battle, but for his arrogance the mage placed a curse on his armor.
"Go forth and help those in need. When you have been cured of your hubris, you shall be released."
Heeding the magician's words, Gawain now wanders the world in order to break free of the curse. His deeds appear to be born of philanthropy, but in reality he is simply an overconfident youth.

Background

Stamp119.png This section contains spoilers. Continue reading at your own discretion.

Gawain hails from the Duchy of Dalmore, a small country on the same island as Feendrache and Wales. It had a weak military and was frequently assaulted by thieves, but Gawain was its saving grace. With his strength, he could single-handedly take down armies and rally Dalmore's troops. Thanks to him, Dalmore was able to maintain order and secure peace treaties with Wales and other neighboring countries, and Gawain received the epithet "hero of Dalmore".

However, Gawain's unrivaled strength soon got to his head. Knowing that nobody would dare oppose him—nor had the strength to—he became a tyrant who abused and even killed Dalmore's citizens without a care. Quickly all the admiration people felt toward him morphed into fear and hatred. After some time, the king decided that there was no option but to execute Gawain.

One woman stood against the king's decision, though; Gawain's older sister and court sorceress Florence. In order to lighten his sentence, she convinced the king to leave Gawain to her. Disguising herself as a wandering sorceress, she provoked Gawain into a duel and prevailed. She cursed his armor so that he would not be able to remove it until he had done enough good deeds and redeemed himself, thus sending him on an unofficial exile from Dalmore as he sought ways to remove this curse. It is during this journey of his that he comes across and joins the crew.


End of spoilers.

Happy Birthday Cutscenes

Today marks the first time I get to wish you a happy birthday since my curse was lifted.
If I hadn't met you, I might still be out wandering the world with my curse, perhaps never getting the chance to save Dalmore.
Hah... I'm grateful for all you've done for me, (Captain).
Hm? No, I won't challenge you to a birthday duel this year.
There's nothing wrong with celebrating by not crossing blades.
What do you mean that won't do? I have to sing you a birthday song instead?
Fine, you leave me no choice.
But that's only if you can score a hit on me!
Bwahaha! I retract my prior statement!
Fight me, (Captain)! Best me with your sword, and my song shall be your reward.

2

Today's your birthday, huh... Take this.
Florence suggested I give you something that lasts, so here it is—a handkerchief.
I'm sorry this is the best I could do. We've been traveling together for quite a while now, but I still don't know what it is you truly desire.
I figured a handkerchief would be least intrusive. Even if it's not to your liking, you can still use it as a towel.
I-I see. In that case, I...
Embarrassed? Me? Of course not! I'm just surprised to see you elated at such a simple gift.
I suppose the time I spent agonizing over this wasn't wasted after all.

Dawn draws near, and soon the sun will rise on the horizon.
Finally I will be able to watch the first sunrise of the year without my mask on. I can only imagine it'll be more dazzling than before.
Although I do blame the mask for obstructing my view, I also have to admit that my narrow perspective of the world didn't help matters either.
Huh? What do you mean I'm being awfully solemn for some reason?
I'm doing no such thing, nor am I trying to create anxiety for you! Don't make baseless accusations.
I strive to do as many good deeds as I can, and this year will be no different. May you have a good one, (Captain).

2

What's this? I see stickers of face parts on top of a face outline.
Lucky Laugh? A game where you try to put together a face while blindfolded? Sounds rather silly if you ask me.
You're handling me a blindfold already? Too bad I won't be playing this game.
You think I lack confidence? Absolutely not. What do you take me for?
Gimme that blindfold. I'll settle this in a flash.
(This must be the nose, so it goes here...)
(Wait, this is the nose, meaning I'll have to switch the positions...)
Hahahah... This is perfect! How about it, (Captain)?
Gah! What manner of beast have I created!

Well, if these aren't Valentine's chocolates.
I think you overestimate the need to thank me for watching your back.
Very well. I suppose I can have a taste of your goodwill right now—
Hey, stop staring at my face. It's rude, and you know it.
You're anticipating the look on my face when I take a bite?
I am not here for your amusement! Just because I removed my mask does not mean I had any inkling of your scheme!
Hmph, clearly you've gone mad. I'll eat these chocolates in my room.
And no peeking! You hear me?

2

You brought me chocolate again?
Appreciate it. You somehow always get me chocolate that matches my tastes.
Wha? In return, you want to watch my face while I eat?
Give me a break! Do you take me for some kind of dog-and-pony show?
Good grief, being around you really gets me off my rocker. I'm going back to my room now.
And you better not come peeking into my room either.

Today being White Day, this is for you, (Captain).
What are you waiting for? Eat them. Show me how you'll react to tasting my gift.
Oh... That was rather normal... You're a good actor.
Tch, what a bore. Now I feel like an idiot for locking myself in my room just to eat chocolate.
You, on the other hand, openly express your joy, and that's an example I need to follow.
(Captain)... Thanks for bearing with me.
Damn it... I thought I was used to saying thank-yous by now, so why do I feel agitated... Curse this infernal holiday!

2

I have something for you, (Captain). Consider it thanks for being a great captain.
You're free to open it now if you'd like. No need to ask for my permission.
Geez, you light up so readily at a simple treat, (Captain). Reminds me of a puppy.
Were I as expressive, perhaps my path in life would have taken a different turn...
Heh, it's just a thought. No need to dwell on it. Eat your chocolate already.
If you're gonna stall, then give me the box. I'll stuff your mouth so full of chocolates that you'll stop being a chatterbox.

Trick or Treat Cutscenes

I always thought Halloween was a day for kids to eat candy, play tricks, and mess with Lost Jack.
But I guess it's a little more than that. People say it's also a day for the dead to come back for a temporary visit.
If that's true, then my mother and father must've seen me back when I was an arrogant fool...
Drunk on power and causing trouble for everyone else. I probably caused them a lot of grief.
What? You want me to give candy to the kids in town?
The past is the past, and I can show my parents how much I've grown since then, is it? I see.
Very well. Let's go buy some candy right away!

2

I've prepared more than enough treats to hand out to children today.
I ran out of treats last year, but that won't happen this time.
With my curse undone, it's no longer necessary to pile on the good deeds. Yet... the children last year said they'd be happy to see me again.
Though I've gotten tired of simply handing over the candy!
That's why it's going to be a contest between you and me to see who finishes handing out treats first, (Captain)!
Hahaha! As Halloween is a festival in a way, it's only right that the adults have as much fun as the children!
I'll be going ahead. Godspeed to both of us!

Happy Holidays Cutscenes

You told Florence to come to this year's winter party?
I see... Let's quickly finish putting up the decorations then. Leave the higher spots to me.
What? No, I am not getting into the spirit just because Florence is coming!
It's simple. If Florence thinks I'm not acclimating to the crew, she's going to get on my case.
You know how incessant her meddling can be. So to allay her fears, I'm going to help to the best of my ability.
Look, if you understand what I'm saying, then give me a hand already, (Captain)!

2

I've put the dishes on the dining table. Speak up now if there's anything else you need help with.
Huh? Is that dry fruit cake you're making?
It brings back memories... My mother used to make that for the holidays when she was still alive.
The scent of all those fruits at once really gets me primed for a holiday feast.
How I miss those family gatherings we used to have...
Ah, what am I being so sentimental for! I'm happy with my life in the crew right now!
So stop it with sullen face! Let's not spoil the night's festive mood.
As I said... I'm happy with life in the crew right now. That's why I'm content helping you like this.
So give me your next orders already, before I start feeling sullen myself.

The Strength to Carry On

With the three-nation treaty officially signed, Gawain intends to climb a mountain before leaving Dalmore, and the crew insist on joining him. As they trek through the mountain, Gawain explains he used to follow his father's training regimen of climbing this very mountain every day. Gawain descends into a familiar gorge and gets attacked by monsters just as he planned.



A three-nation alliance now exists between Feendrache, Wales, and Dalmore.
But relations among the new allies weren't always so rosy. In the past, Dalmore broke a prior alliance with Wales.
That betrayal stuck with Wales, making it difficult to broach a new alliance.
It wasn't until Gawain and the crew thwarted a scheme perpetrated by an unknown cabal and Pete, the commander of the Dalmore knights, that talks of a partnership could resume.
Gawain's efforts won back the trust Aglovale had lost in Dalmore.
Realizing they shared a common enemy, it was more important than ever for the three nations to set aside their differences and join together.
That is how the alliance between Feendrache, Wales, and Dalmore came to be.
Gawain: I have somewhere to go before I leave Dalmore. Do you mind if I have a little more time?
Vyrn: Ah, visiting your parents, right?
Vyrn: Gotcha, gotcha. It's hard to leave home. Take all the time you need to say what you have to say!
Gawain: Hmph. You're jumping to conclusions. I already stopped by their graves.
Vyrn: Oh? If not there, then where?
The crew members follow Gawain's gaze to a steep mountain in the distance. They can hardly believe their eyes.
Lyria: You're going to—
Gawain: Yes. It won't take that long. Please wait for me aboard the airship.
Vyrn: You seriously gonna climb that thing by yourself? What if something happens?
Gawain: You're jumping to conclusions again. I'll be—
Vyrn and Lyria: ...
Gawain: Fine. Tag along if you want, against my better judgment.
Lyria: Huff... Puff... Are we almost there, Gawain?
Gawain: Unfortunately we still have some distance to cover.
Vyrn: Well, can we rest for a bit? I'm not gonna last if I gotta carry Lyria the rest of the way up.
Gawain: You should've listened when I said to stay behind.
  1. How are you not tired?
  2. Give me a piggyback ride...

Choose: How are you not tired?
Gawain: I know this mountain like the back of my hand. It's nothing I can't handle.
Vyrn: Gee... So he's got a mountain of stamina too.

Choose: Give me a piggyback ride...
Gawain: What! Pull yourself together, (Captain), and act like a captain should!
(Captain) grins at the agitated knight and says it was only a joke.
Continue 1
Gawain: Hmph.
Gawain thinks for a moment. He then squats down with his back facing Lyria and Vyrn.
Gawain: Get on.
Lyria: Oh, but—
Gawain: The sun will set if you keep dawdling, and I have no desire to tumble down a rocky mountain in the dark.
Vyrn: Hehe. Well, if you're offering!
After Lyria and Vyrn get comfortable on Gawain's back, (Captain) and Gawain continue up the trail.
Vyrn: Boy, you make mountain climbing look easy.
Gawain: A knight of Dalmore mustn't be defeated by the very terrain he's sworn to protect.
Vyrn: Hm, so are all the knights of Dalmore good at mountain climbing?
Gawain: Yes. Among the allied nations, no army can march through mountains like we can. Even then, I am by far the most experienced.
Vyrn: Yeah, you're pretty much the best all right.
Gawain: Don't flatter me. I had to work for it.
Vyrn: Hm, it's not like you to be all humble and stuff.
Gawain: Hmph... Being out here in the wilderness brings back memories.
Gawain: We all have to start somewhere, and at one time I was no different from the new recruits.
Gawain: After Father passed, Pete took over as knight commander. He kept in shape by participating in normal knight drills, and at first that was adequate.
Gawain: But he could never reach Father's standards. Even to my untrained eye I knew his combat proficiency and tactical competency were lacking.
Gawain: I soon understood why he'd never surpass Father: Pete's work ethic stopped as soon as he left the training grounds.
Gawain: Father was different though. On the few occasions I peeked into his journal, I saw his personal training regimen.
Gawain: Knight drills were already harsh, and apparently he trained even more before those drills.
Gawain: Wheeze... I'll never surpass Dad if I can't handle a mere mountain!
Gawain: Curse this body! I will not fail!
His father, Lot, devised his own regimen, and Gawain followed it in hopes of sharpening his physical and mental qualities as a knight.
It was so punishing that he almost felt like giving up halfway through, but he succeeded on willpower and guts.
However, there were consequences.
Gawain: ...
Florence: I know you want to get stronger, Gawain, but aren't you being too reckless?
Gawain: Nothing worthwhile comes without pain. My body will eventually get the message.
Morgause: You're following right in your father's footsteps.
Morgause: Once he latches onto something, he has to see it through—
Gawain: Guh...
Florence: H-hey! What's wrong!
Morgause: He passed out from overexertion. Let's get him to bed.
Florence: Ugh, he should try putting himself in our shoes for a change.
Gawain nods off into a deep sleep after receiving a dose of healing spells from his mother and sister.
In the morning, Gawain slips away for training before his worried family wakes up.
He stands at the base of the mountain and makes a vow.
Gawain: I yield to no one. Supreme might shall be mine.
Gawain: I shall become a knight who stands above my father's legacy!
Gawain: From that day forth I followed his regimen without fail until my body was thoroughly forged.
Vyrn: Wow, it's amazing how you stuck it out every single day.
Vyrn flips through a book containing Gawain's training regimen with a sort of awe.
Gawain: Hey! What are you doing with my journal!
Vyrn: You showed it to us while you were talkin', remember? I guess your mind was somewhere else.
Gawain: Tch...
Lyria: It looks like your training got tougher each day according to the journal. That's incredible.
Gawain: I had slumps as well, you know. Whenever my health failed due to burnout, I had to scale back for a while.
Vyrn: You're more of a go-getter than I thought. It's like setbacks don't actually set you back.
Gawain: My father often said, "Those who put in the work will have their day."
Gawain: Whenever those words ring true, I feel as if I'm getting closer to him...
Vyrn: That's deep stuff. You're pretty talkative today, Gawain.
Gawain: Hmph. I have thoughts and feelings too. Why couldn't you have stayed on the airship like I asked?
By the time Gawain finishes talking, he arrives at the edge of a gorge, which is partially concealed by a forest of trees.
Vyrn: Are we gonna be safe? This place gives me the creeps...
Gawain: Don't worry. It hasn't changed since I last came here.
Lyria: Huh?
Gawain: There was one flaw in my plan. Completing my father's training regimen only brought me up to his level, not above it.
Gawain: Then I found this place. I made it out alive, and I was reborn in every sense of the word.
With a hint of fondness, Gawain looks down at the gorge before carefully descending into it.
In an instant, the forest comes alive.
The trees shake violently as enraged monsters burst forth from their hideaways.
Monster: ...!
Monster: Urnk, urnk!
Monster: Grrr!
Vyrn: Yikes! What's with the stampede!
Lyria: Look out! They're heading straight for us!
Gawain: Heh... I see some familiar faces.
Gawain: Excuse me while I limber up. Stick to the high ground, and don't come down until I'm finished.
Vyrn: But those monsters look kinda deranged, and there's a whole lot of 'em...
Gawain: Yeah, that's why it's called training.
Gawain readies his weapon and welcomes the monsters' onslaught.

Where a Hero Was Forged

As a seasoned warrior, Gawain is unsatisfied by the lack of challenge posed by the monsters, but it wasn't always that way. He tells the crew a story from his youth, about the time he slipped while training atop a cliff and fell into a gorge. In addition to being horrifically injured, he also had to fight off vicious monsters to survive.



Monster: ...!
Monster: Urnk, urnk!
Gawain: Hraagh! Away with you!
Monster: ...
Monster: Grugh...
Monster: Awoo!
Gawain: Gaaah!
Monster: Whimper...
Gawain: Sigh... That's it?
Gawain looks disappointed after defeating the monster ambush without breaking a sweat.
To the crew watching from a safe distance, the spectacle reinforces just how strong he's become.
Vyrn: Dang... He's a one-man wrecking ball.
Lyria: Um, Gawain? You said something about making it out of this place alive.
Lyria: What did you mean by that?
Gawain: It's a long story.
He cranes his neck upward at a tall cliff overlooking the gorge.
Gawain: I remember it was pouring that day.
Gawain: Fatigued from a full day's worth of training, I lost my footing and slipped off the cliff into this gorge.
Vyrn: Whoa... And you still walked away from it without a scratch, huh?
Gawain: Hah, after a fall like that?
Gawain: It's nothing short of a miracle that I was able to open my eyes again.
Gawain: Ngh...
Monster: ...
Monster: Hissss...
Gawain: I was in shambles. Broken bones, lacerations... Even bending a finger sent pain shooting through my body.
Gawain: Those monsters must've thought it was their lucky day. I was like a slab of fresh meat served up on a silver platter.
Gawain: This is no time to give in to the pain. Get up, Gawain! Move, damn it!
Gawain berates his body, and through sheer force of will, he manages to take a battle stance.
Gawain: Aaaah!
Gawain: If you're going to eat me, then come and eat me!
Monster: Roooar!
Monster: Urgh...
Monster: Hissss!
Gawain: If I don't win...
Gawain: (My life will have been for nothing.)
Gawain: Graaah!
Gawain withstands the monsters' attacks, desperately waiting for the chance to counter.
Gawain: You can't kill me! I will survive!
Gawain: Haah! Take this!
Monster: Ngh...
Monster: Shhh...
Gawain: Huff... Huff...
Summoning forth all his energy, Gawain defeats the two monsters.
But just as he gets a taste of hope, a dreadful sound snatches it away.
Monster: Grr...
Gawain: Haha... Hahaha!
Gawain: So be it. I'll go down swinging.
With more monsters coming out of the woodwork, Gawain's struggle to survive has only just begun.

Where a Hero Was Forged: Scene 2

A battered Gawain crawls home after fighting for days in the gorge, and his mother and sister chide him for his recklessness. Even so, he vows to return to the gorge for more training despite his injuries because he believes he has to risk his life in order to surpass his limitations.



After accidentally falling off a cliff, Gawain is battling for his life against hungry monsters.
Gawain: Don't look down on me!
Monsters: Gargh...
Gawain: Huff... Huff...
Gawain: Agh!
Adrenaline had allowed him to fight without pain, but now that the monsters are subdued, he's no longer distracted from the impact of his injuries.
Gawain: Aaaaargh!
The frenetic battle has opened his wounds even further, and the trauma to his innards has only gotten worse.
He loses count of the days as he crawls through the gorge looking for a way out. He finally discovers a slope that he might be able to scale.
Gawain: Now for the hard part...
Gawain hears a shriek from above him. He grits his teeth when he sees a winged creature circling in the sky.
Gawain: Do I really look that tasty?
Gawain: Try and take bite out of me. In the end, I'll be the one feasting!
Monster: Gyaaah!
Gawain: Come on!
Gawain psyches himself up by hurling more insults at the flying creature.
It dives at him.
The door to Gawain's residence creaks open and a broken, disheveled man flops hard to the floor.
Gawain: Moan...
Florence: Who is it?
Gawain: ...
Florence: Gasp! Gawain!
Mother! Come quick!
Morgause: Oh, my poor child! What happened to you!
Morgause: I need to clean and dress these wounds! Help me, Florence!
For the first time in days, Gawain feels a calm warmth envelop his body, and he lets his consciousness drift away.
It only takes a day for Gawain to wake up.
His lips curl into a smirk when he sees that his entire body is bound in bandages.
Gawain: Haha... I look like a monster.
Florence: You have no right to be laughing right now.
Gawain: ...
Florence: Well? Are you going to tell me how you got these horrific injuries?
Gawain: I... fell. It was a big fall.
Florence: Liar.
Gawain: It's the truth.
Florence: Gawain!
Morgause: That's enough, you two.
Florence: But, Mother—
Morgause: He doesn't want to talk about it, and you know how he gets when he's stubborn.
Morgause: But this time, whatever you're doing, it's too much. I want you to stop for me.
Morgause: You're a knight of Dalmore. Follow Pete's example and learn from him.
Gawain: ...
Morgause: For now, you just lie there until those wounds are healed.
As soon as his mother and sister are out of the room, Gawain lets out a deep sigh.
Gawain: (I don't enjoy worrying them, but I know one thing is clear.)
Gawain: (I need to fight with my life on the line. That's the fastest way to surpassing my limitations.)
Gawain, injuries and all, plans to return to the monster-infested gorge. In his mind, he sees this as the best path to attaining strength.
It doesn't matter how outlandish of a plan it may sound. Nothing will stop him from seeing it through.

Where a Hero Was Forged: Scene 3

Gawain concludes his gorge story by saying that the healing provided by his family had secretly imbued him with divine protection that allowed him to survive the harsh training in the gorge. As for why the monsters here are in such a frenzied state, Gawain says they're being affected by a nearby leyline, and he wants to secure it before the cabal finds it for their own evil purposes.



Gawain: I kept coming back here to gamble with my life.
Gawain: It wouldn't be farfetched to say that I'd lost my mind.
Gawain: But this gorge was responsible for much of my growth as a knight.
Vyrn: It musta been tough on your family though...
Lyria: They didn't say anything?
Gawain: No. One day they simply stopped bringing it up.
Gawain: Of course I knew they were still worried.
Gawain: But I had to get stronger at all costs. I didn't have time for their concern.
Gawain: And yet...
Memories of his impulsive youth causes Gawain to sheepishly smile. He runs his fingers along his chest.
Gawain: One time I took a particularly vicious hit from a monster. I thought my end had finally come.
Gawain: But when I saw how shallow the wound was, that's when I realized something.
Gawain: My mother and sister, without even knowing it, imbued me with a sort of divine protection when they were healing me.
Gawain: Ironically it was thanks to my family that I was able to charge into danger with reckless abandon.
Vyrn: So without that protection...
Gawain: I'd be long buried in the ground.
Gawain scans the area, wondering where the monsters might leap out from next.
Vyrn: What's the matter?
Gawain: I didn't come here to talk about my past.
Gawain: Back then all I focused on was getting stronger. I didn't care why the monsters were so strong here.
Gawain: I'm sure you can sense that the monsters in this area are different. Much more hostile.
Gawain: It's no doubt a side effect of the leylines.
Gawain: No one else in Dalmore knows about this place.
Gawain: So before anyone from the cabal uses this leyline for evil, I figured I should do something to keep it under wraps.
Vyrn: Well, you didn't have to do it all by yourself...
Gawain: Hmph. As I said before, no other knight in Dalmore compares to me.
I work faster alone—
Monster Horde: Groooar!
Gawain: But I feel generous today. There are more than enough foes to go around. Help me clear these monsters, and then let us find the leyline.
Lyria: Okay!
(Captain) and company enter the fray against the monsters so that they may pinpoint the location of the leyline in peace.

Where a Hero Was Forged: Scene 4

The crew defeats monsters inside a cave and find the leyline in its inner reaches. On the way back to Dalmore Castle to report the leyline's location, Gawain reiterates his commitment to stopping the cabal and asks the crew for their support. Gawain is heartened by their quick response, and he's happy knowing he has good friends.



Gawain: Back, you curs!
Monster: Gyuu...
Vyrn: Geez, they just kept comin'. Can't believe you used this place as training grounds...
Gawain: Fighting at death's door teaches you to discard your dependencies. It has its advantages.
Lyria: ...!
Lyria: I sense something strange inside that cave over there!
(Captain) feels it too—a disquieting melancholy that emanates from the hole. The captain nods, and they enter the cave.
Lyria: Gosh, it's big enough for monsters to call home—
Gawain: Lyria, stop! Don't take another step. A monster could attack at any moment. Stay behind me.
Lyria: O-okay!
Vyrn: I got a bad feeling about this! Looks like there's a whole swarm of 'em up ahead.
A mass of creatures catch sight of the intruders and charge at them like an angry tidal wave.
Gawain: Hmph. How foolish. They didn't have to throw a welcome party on my account.
Gawain: Teach them a lesson, (Captain), until they can stand no more.
  1. You got it.

Choose: You got it.
(Captain) flashes a grin and charges into the monster horde with Gawain.
Gawain: Yaaah! Die!
Monster: Eergh...
Gawain: Phew... That was an exhilarating party.
Gawain puts down the last monster and returns (Captain)'s smile from earlier with one of his own.
Lyria: Is that the leyline?
Gawain: Sure seems like it.
Vyrn: Only one way to find out, right?
