Unaware of the machinations behind-the-scenes, Lancelot became the Captain of the newly reorganised Order of the White Dragons, composed of the remnants of the disgraced Order of the Black Dragons. The events of Defender's Oath transpire, and Feendrache is thrown into upheaval as Lancelot learns of the secrets behind the Order's reorganisation. Despite any further plots against his beloved kingdom, Lancelot makes the effort to rebuild every time, even temporarily travelling with the Grandcypher crew to learn more about the outside world. As part of his desire to overhaul the education system and reform the Order, Lancelot revises their application process to make them more impartial, aiming to judge candidates on their chivalry instead of their lineage, bolstered by his own background as a commoner who managed to become Captain. This in turn grants Arthur and Mordred the opportunity to join the Order in Divergent Knighthoods.
Lancelot is noble and diligent, the perfect image of a knight. Even as children, Lancelot would play with Vane and still manage to read vast quantities of books. His persistence in learning lead to his reputation as a prodigy, earning him favour and accolades that helped him rise in rank despite his commoner origins.
Despite his natural talent for swordsmanship, Lancelot holds insecurities about the meaning of chivalry, especially considering the circumstances behind him becoming Captain at his young age. His tendency to mull on his own self doubt, combined with his fervent doggedness, means he can easily lose sight of himself. His hidden stress frequently manifests as a messy room, which Vane ends up having to clean, who, in turn, encourages Lancelot to vent out his troubles. Aided by Vane's rise in rank to become his Vice Captain, Lancelot learns the importance of confiding and leaning on others.
Before being placed in a position of responsibility, Lancelot had been much rowdier, cracking jokes and frequently getting into fights with his fellow knights. Sometimes, this playful side of him still slips out when he is away from his duties, and is easily seen in his excitement to play tricks on Halloween. However, he hides this from his subordinates lest his professional image be torn, and appears embarrassed when Vane brings up his mischievous past.

The Calm Before the Storm
Lancelot of the Order of the White Dragons takes an interest in (Captain)'s ability to lead a crew. (Captain) invites Lancelot to join them.
The crew visits a country blessed by the protective powers of a primal beast named Sylph.
When Sylph is swallowed by a dragon named Fafnir, the crew joins a rescue team to get her back.
The rescue operation will commence the next day. In the meantime Lancelot guides the crew through the royal palace.
Lyria: What is this room, Lancelot?
Lancelot: This is the banquet hall. It's used for a variety of events held each year such as balls and ceremonies.
Vyrn: Come on, Lyria, Lancelot's probably busy. Quit buggin' him.
Lancelot: Hahaha! Not to worry. This is a nice change of pace for me.
Angry voices can be heard as they near a guard station.
Guard 1: You punk! Draw your sword!
Guard 2: Hah, if it's a fight you're looking for, you'll get one!
Lancelot: Stand at attention! Where do you think you are?
Guard 1 & 2: Lancelot! It's this guy's fault!
Lancelot: Bloodshed in the royal court is strictly forbidden.
Guard 2: B-but he started it first!
Guard 1: Did not! You badmouthed me first!
Lancelot: It doesn't matter. You will comply with the rules at all times. No exceptions.
Thus disciplinary measures were handed down to the soldiers from Lancelot.
Lancelot: I'm sorry you had to see such a shameful display, (Captain).
Lancelot: Delaying the rescue until tomorrow has probably frayed the nerves of the soldiers.
Vyrn: Yikes. That was some scary face you made back there.
Lyria: Yeah. It sure isn't easy leading knights!
Lancelot: The Order of the White Dragons has many members. Maintaining order is only possible when everyone abides by the rules.
Lancelot: Injuring fellow members is a particularly serious offense that will not be pardoned.
Lancelot: That extends to the captain as well. Regardless of their reasons, those who would defy our regulations can't escape judgment.
Lyria: The life of a knight is no picnic.
Lancelot: Sorry, I didn't mean to frighten you.
Lancelot: But speaking of which, leading a crew is pretty difficult too, isn't it, (Captain)?
Choose: Not as bad as you have it.
- Not as bad as you have it.
- Nope, I'm surprisingly free.
Lancelot: Heh. So you have some leeway.Choose: Nope, I'm surprisingly free.
Lancelot: Yes, freedom is fitting for the skies.Continue 1
Lancelot: You must be well-received to be leading a crew at your age.
Vyrn: You know it! I bet you'd see why too if you joined our crew.
Choose: You're always welcome with us!
- You're always welcome with us!
- But what about the White Dragons?
Lancelot: A recruitment offer? Hahaha, how intriguing!Choose: But what about the White Dragons?
Lancelot: That's right. My orders right now as the captain of the White Dragons is to defeat Fafnir.Continue 2
Lancelot: Ah, we've reached the guest rooms. You must be tired from your journey. Please rest up for tomorrow.
Vyrn: Okay! Thanks for showing us here!
Lyria: Good night, Lancelot!
Lancelot: Good night.
Lancelot: (A skyfaring crew, huh? I wonder what missions they've undertaken. Hehe, I'm genuinely curious.)
The eve of the battle with Fafnir passes quietly.
(Captain) and company have a brief rest before the struggles of tomorrow.
King Carl orders Lancelot to travel the skies and learn new ways to improve Feendrache. Lancelot sets out for a land with no kings with (Captain) and the crew.
King Carl orders Lancelot to accompany (Captain)'s crew and learn more about the world outside Feendrache.
King Carl: I want you to broaden your horizons for the betterment of our kingdom.
King Carl: Lancelot. I trust you will bring great changes upon your return.
Lancelot: Yes, Your Highness! I shall devote myself to becoming the bedrock of this country!
Lancelot: I've been handed a royal decree from the king, but I don't even know where to begin...
Vyrn: Yeah, making your country better is nice and all, but actually doing it without knowing where to start is something else.
Lancelot: Perhaps he wants me to figure out my own path.
Lancelot: That's it! I think I'll start by observing other lands.
Lyria: I see. You can learn a lot from others!
Lancelot: Exactly. You can't learn without seeing and experiencing something firsthand.
Vyrn: Hm, is there anywhere in particular you want to go then?
Lancelot: Let me think... I was once surprised to hear about a country without a king.
Lancelot: I'd like to know how such a country came to be.
Vyrn: A country without a king? That's like the opposite of your country.
Lyria: We haven't decided our next destination yet, so why don't we go there, (Captain)?
Choose: It's time to get a move on!
- It's time to get a move on!
- Maybe there'll be jobs for us.
Lancelot: I heard it's a peaceful place, so we'll probably be able to relax a bit.Choose: Maybe there'll be jobs for us.
Lancelot: Could be. It's rare these days to find a place that doesn't need the help of skyfarers.Continue 1
Lancelot: I'm sorry you all have to indulge in my own affairs. Thank you, (Captain).
Vyrn: All right, set a course for Lancelot's mystery land!
Study Abroad: Scene 2
Lancelot arrives at a country with no king and is only protected by a small militia. His fear of the militia's inexperience proves correct when monsters invade the town.
The crew sets down on a small country without a ruling monarch.
Since there are no knights in the country, members of a volunteer militia greet the crew.
Militia Captain: Oh! You must be Sir Lancelot! I've heard much about you.
Lancelot: I wanted to see this country without a king for myself. My apologies for the sudden visit.
Militia Captain: I see. I suppose our ways must be quite unfamiliar to you, Sir Lancelot.
Militia Captain: In this country, any citizen can participate in council meetings. Because of this, everyone strives to increase their knowledge.
Militia Captain: Therefore education is compulsory for all children.
Lancelot: All of them? Even the ones who have no interest in becoming scholars?
Lancelot: But wouldn't that leave less training time for those who seek to be knights, artisans, and the like?
Militia Captain: That's exactly right. You could say we emphasize the pen over the sword.
Lancelot: (I see. Their militia appears somewhat proficient in combat, but they're not as reliable as our knights. )
Lancelot: (Time is a limited resource. What path would I have taken if I had to choose? That's a tough call...)
Lyria: It looks like Lancelot and the others are talking about some important stuff...
Militia Captain: Oops, sorry for talking your ear off. One of us can escort you around town as we do our patrol if you'd like.
Lancelot: I'd appreciate that. If you would, please?
Militia Member: We got trouble, Captain! Monsters! Monsters have wrecked the city walls!
Militia Captain: What? That can't be!
Lancelot: What's the condition of the wall? Can it be repaired? Where are the monsters heading, and how were they acting after breaking down the wall?
Militia Member: Um... The monsters ran into town after the wall broke. We can't start repairs until the monsters are gone.
Lancelot: Of course. Then we must first clear out the monsters inside the town. Can we lend you a hand?
Militia Captain: That'd really help us out! We'll focus on the ones already inside. Please take out the ones by the wall!
Sorry for acting on my own, (Captain), but if we don't help these people...
Vyrn: No worries! (Captain) ain't gonna leave people behind when they're in trouble!
Lancelot: And that's why I joined your crew.
Lancelot: Let's move! Don't allow a single casualty!
Study Abroad: Scene 3
The monsters at the wall are defeated, and Lancelot and company rush over to help the outmatched militia further in town.
Lancelot: Phew. The area around the wall is clear.
Lancelot: Call a few members of the militia over here to stand guard. That should be more efficient.
Lancelot: We're more experienced in battle than the militia. Let's go after the monsters in the town!
Militia Captain: Don't panic! Please evacuate in an orderly fashion!
Militia Captain: Ugh... Have the monsters already made it this far? Everyone hold the line!
Militia Member: Protect the citizens! Go!
The militia pushes back against the wave of monsters as best as they can.
But due to their lack of experience, they eventually begin losing ground to the monsters.
Militia Captain: Ngh... We have to protect everyone! We can't lose ground!
Lancelot: Are you all right? We're here to help!
Militia Captain: Sir Lancelot! I'm fine, but the evacuation is still in progress!
Lancelot: Understood. Prioritize the evac! Send a squad back to the walls, and don't let any more monsters inside!
Militia Captain: Got it! But what about the monsters already here?
Lancelot: Leave that to us! (Captain), I need your help for a little while longer!
Vyrn: You got it! Let's show them what we can do, (Captain)!
Study Abroad: Scene 4
After defeating the monsters, Lancelot offers the country military training in exchange for their know-how on educational systems. This agreement will surely strengthen the two lands.
With (Captain) and the crew's help, the monsters are repelled from the town and repairs to the wall are underway.
Militia Captain: Thanks to all of you, we were able to keep the damages to a minimum.
Militia Captain: I don't know how we can thank you. I see now how woefully unprepared we are...
Lancelot: I was impressed by your militia's strong will to protect the town. All you need is more training.
Militia Captain: But I'm sorry to say we lack an instructor... Sir Lancelot!
Militia Captain: It would be an honor if you could stay with us as an advisor to the militia.
Lancelot: An advisor?
Lancelot: I'm afraid I can't. I'm truly humbled to be offered the position, but I have sworn fealty to King Carl.
Lancelot: I'm here on orders from the king himself. I can't betray his trust.
Militia Captain: You're absolutely correct. I've overstepped my bounds. Please forget what was said today.
Lancelot: Hmm. I can't stay, but how about this?
Lancelot: What if I brought in a trusted knight of mine to act as an advisor in my place?
Lancelot: We would like to learn your methods of education in return for our military techniques.
Lancelot: I believe this arrangement will be mutually beneficial.
Militia Captain: A superb idea! I couldn't ask for anything more. I think this may be the beginning of a wonderful relationship.
The crew returns to the airship bearing all of the gratitude of the country's people.
Lyria: You were so cool back there, Lancelot! No wonder you're the captain of the White Dragons!
Lancelot: Haha. I'm flattered, but I still have a long way to go. I can't lose focus now!
Lancelot's quest to learn more about the world has only just begun.
With a strong resolve in his heart, Lancelot is prepared to scour the world for knowledge.
The Dedicated Knight Falters
The crew is honored at an awards ceremony for their role in saving Feendrache twice from disaster. Later that night King Carl and Lancelot ask the crew for help with monster extermination.
Feendrache has now been twice saved from seditious plots by Lancelot and the crew.
(Captain) and company have once again returned to Feendrache to attend an awards ceremony in their honor.
Lancelot: Thank you for going out of your way to come back here.
Lancelot: His Highness insisted that I personally extend his gratitude to you and your crew.
Vyrn: Heheh! What an honor!
Lancelot: The purpose of this ceremony is also to soothe the fears of the citizenry.
Lancelot: Nonetheless you have little to worry about, (Captain).
Lancelot: Stalls have already been set up in town ahead of the ceremony, so why don't you soak up some of the atmosphere before we start?
Vane: So this is where you've been, Lancey!
Vane: Get your formal armor on! You're behind schedule!
Lancelot: Whoops, you're right.
Lancelot: Vane, take over for me and show everyone around.
Vane: You got it, buddy!
People from across the land have gathered in the throne room and the ceremony begins.
King Carl: Most esteemed (Captain). On this occasion we thank you for your steadfast support during our kingdom's darkest hour.
Vyrn: Heheheh, (Captain) can't resist a kingdom in peril!
King Carl: Our gratitude to you for your dedication to helping people knows no end. Thank you.
King Carl: Siegfried. You have time and time again come to our aid.
Siegfried: No, the capital would surely have been lost without the ardent efforts of these young knights.
King Carl: Don't sell yourself short. This land would've fallen without you.
King Carl: All of Feendrache is indebted to you.
Siegfried: Your Highness! The honor is all mine.
King Carl: Vane, Percival. We must also extend our thanks to the two of you.
Vane: Hehe. As long as you and everyone else is safe, that's good enough for me!
Percival: Anyone would have done the same considering the circumstances. There's no need to thank us.
King Carl: Haha, is that so? I see you two are the same as ever.
King Carl: And finally, Lancelot.
Lancelot: Your Highness!
King Carl: Your new armor suits you well.
King Carl: That gift is a representation of your devotion and loyal service.
Lancelot: I humbly accept this gracious gift! I vow to redouble my efforts to serve you and the country!
King Carl: Citizens! Hail your heroes! The saviors of Feendrache!
The crowd breaks out into applause and raucous shouts of joy.
With the ceremony over, everyone enjoys the after banquet, feasting and making merry to their heart's content.
That evening King Carl, accompanied by Lancelot, pays a visit to (Captain) and the crew in their guest chambers.
King Carl: Thank you once again! I trust you enjoyed yourselves at the banquet?
Lyria: Yes, it was a lot of fun, and the food was delicious!
King Carl: Hah hah hah! Wonderful! I'm glad we were able to finally show you some hospitality.
King Carl: Now as for our visit... Lancelot.
Lancelot: Yes, Your Highness! (Captain), the truth is we have another great favor to ask of you.
Lancelot: I mentioned this before the ceremony, but the people are uneasy after being brought so close to disaster not once, but twice.
Lancelot: As a result we have increased the number of monster extermination patrols to show the might of the White Dragons.
Lancelot: If the citizenry know that the knights are close by, that should assuage their fears.
Vyrn: Mm-hmm, sounds good to me!
Vyrn: So what's this favor you want to ask us about?
Lancelot: (Captain), we'd like you and your crew to join those monster-hunting raids.
Lancelot: Your involvement as the saviors of the kingdom are sure to galvanize the population.
Lyria: Yes, that makes sense. Let's help out, (Captain)!
King Carl: Goodness, we've done nothing but rely on you since the very beginning. We are forever grateful.
Vyrn: Hehe, that's super encouraging coming from the king!
Starting tomorrow the crew will accompany the Order of the White Dragons on their monster hunts.
The Dedicated Knight Falters: Scene 2
The patrol arrives at a small village where they are hailed as heroes, but Lancelot overhears unsettling doubts about King Carl's rule from the villagers.
Proceeding with their monster-quelling patrols, (Captain), the crew, and the Order of the White Dragons reach a small village.
Villager 1: Gasp! Aren't they the White Dragons? They're the ones keeping the kingdom safe!
Villager 2: And those guys with them are the skyfarers that saved the kingdom!
The villagers give the passing column a warm ovation.
Vyrn: They love us! They really, really love us!
Percival: It's because a tiny village like this isn't able to keep away all the monsters that live in the area.
Lancelot: That's why they've been waiting for us.
Lancelot: We'll have to do our best not to disappoint them.
Lancelot starts to prepare for the coming expedition against the monsters.
As he is doing this, the chatter of the villagers reaches his ears.
Villager 1: I know we depend on the order, but we got caught up in two disasters thanks to old King Carl...
Villager 1: Trouble's brewing again. I can feel it...
Villager 2: He ascended the throne way too quickly if you ask me, right after the last king died.
Villager 2: He's always been known for his generosity, but I'm not so sure he's cut out to be king...
Villager 1: I heard that his older brother always kept a firm hand on the rudder. If only he'd stayed healthy...
Lancelot: (How could they say that? Their shaken faith is worse than I expected.)
Lancelot: (To go so far as to question His Highness's governance—)
Lyria: Lancelot, what's the matter?
Lancelot: Ahem. It's nothing.
Lancelot: Let's set out! Those monsters won't take care of themselves!
Vyrn: Yep, leave it to us! Come on, (Captain)!
The Dedicated Knight Falters: Scene 3
Lancelot overhears villagers criticizing King Carl's style of governance—Percival surprisingly agrees with the villagers. Percival then asks Lancelot what his priorities are, sending Lancelot into a rage.
Lancelot: (We've managed to purge the evil from the land, but not the anxiety that's taken root in people's hearts.)
Lancelot: (There must be something I can do for the people and for the kingdom... but what?)
Percival: Hey, Lancelot.
Lancelot: Huh? What is it, Percival?
Percival: Stop staring off into space.
Percival: We don't know where the monsters will attack from. You need to stay on your toes.
Percival: I shouldn't have to tell you that.
Percival: We can't afford to slip up now.
Lancelot: Yes, you're right. Sorry.
Percival: Humph. Were you shocked by what those villagers said?
Lancelot: So you heard them too?
Percival: It's not that surprising. It was more or less expected given the circumstances.
Percival: It seems his reputation as a soft-hearted ruler has become a cause of concern for the people out here.
Lancelot: Ugh! Don't tell me even you believe that drivel!
Percival: Quit barking, you lap dog.
Percival: Heh. His Highness this, His Highness that. You're more of a bootlicker than a knight.
Lancelot: What did you say? Are you questioning my chivalry?
Percival: Look, if you're going to call yourself a knight, don't forget who it is you're meant to protect.
Percival: So who is it? A single man who bears the crown, or the entire populace of a country?
Percival's words send Lancelot into a barely concealable rage.
Suddenly monsters fly out from a thicket, aiming for Lancelot's back.
Percival: You're gonna have to launch a better surprise attack than that.
Vyrn: Oh no! They got us surrounded!
Lancelot: The village won't last long against a horde of monsters this large! We've got to stop them here!
Lancelot: (Just what I need to regather my thoughts!)
The Dedicated Knight Falters: Scene 4
Upon returning to the castle after a day of monster hunting, Lancelot is visited by King Carl. The king urges Lancelot to leave Feendrache with (Captain)'s crew to explore the skies and expand his horizons.
(Captain) and the crew help the order complete their patrols. They all return to the castle unscathed.
The patrols are scheduled to continue for tomorrow. In the meantime Lancelot agonizes over what he had heard earlier at the village.
Lancelot: (Just defeating monsters alone isn't enough to allay the fears of the people.)
Lancelot: (But... what else can I possibly do?)
Lancelot: (When it comes to my principles, Percival probably takes me for a fool.)
Lancelot: (Huh? Who could that be at this hour?)
King Carl: I'm sorry to disturb you, Lancelot.
Lancelot: Your Highness? I'm sorry you have to see the knights' quarters in such an unkempt state!
King Carl: It's all right.
Hahaha, I see what you mean.
King Carl: I believe Vane was supposed to have tidied all of this up.
Lancelot: My deepest apologies.
King Carl: But you must also take some of the blame for allowing your quarters to get into such a state.
King Carl: And just what is vexing you so much that you'd neglect your basic duties?
Lancelot: Forgive me. It's something too trivial for a knight to be as troubled over as I have been.
Lancelot: However, I have by no means been neglecting my duties!
King Carl: Yes, yes, no need to get worked up. Hoho... You're quite the earnest fellow.
King Carl: I've been worried about you for some time now, Lancelot. You work too hard.
Lancelot: I'm a knight! It's only natural that I should give my life to my king and country!
King Carl: And for that I am grateful. Nevertheless I'd like for you to stretch your wings every once in a while.
King Carl: How about it? I can ask (Captain) personally if you'd like.
King Carl: It might do you some good to take a gamble on those skyfarers and get away from your duties for a while.
Lancelot: Your Highness?
King Carl: Hoho. That's an order, Lancelot.
Lancelot: (It's as the king says. Perhaps some time away will do me good.)
Lancelot: Thank you for your concern, Your Highness. I am ever grateful.
And so Lancelot leaves with the crew at the behest of King Carl.
Lancelot is being given the chance to observe his country and his order from a broader perspective.
He will need some time to discover the path to his own brand of chivalry.
The Loyal Knight's Resolve
Lancelot takes some time away from the White Dragons to the see the world with the crew. He's still preoccupied with his inadequacies as a knight and decides to clear his mind by hunting some monsters.
Lancelot leaves the White Dragons temporarily to travel with (Captain) and the crew.
He agonizes over what he lacks in order to be a better knight.
(Captain) is concerned about Lancelot's state of mind and suggests that he sit out the next mission.
Lancelot: Thank you for looking out for me, but I insist on helping you with the request.
Lyria: Are you sure, Lancelot?
Lancelot: Yes. Seeing as you've invited me on board, (Captain), I'd like to do my share.
Lancelot: Besides, I'll end up with cabin fever if I don't get out and stretch my legs.
Lyria: Really? Well, okay, but don't push yourself too much.
Lancelot: Thank you, Lyria.
Lancelot: Now, we must dispatch those monsters laying waste to the farmlands. To battle!
The Loyal Knight's Resolve: Scene 2
Back on the Grandcypher, Vane visits Lancelot in his room, and they have an open discussion about Lancelot's worries. Thanks to Vane's forthrightness, Lancelot breaks out of his slump, and the crew turns back for the capital.
(Captain) and company complete the request and return to the airship.
Vane: Hey, Lancey, are you in there?
Vane's shoulders sag as he looks around the appalling mess of a room.
Vane! What are you doing here?
Vane: Hehe, it's been so long that I just had to see your face again!
Vane's shoulders sag as he looks around the appalling mess of a room.Continue 1
Vane: Geez, I only took my eyes off you for a second...
Vane starts tidying up the clutter without waiting for Lancelot to respond.
Vane: There. At least I have somewhere to stand now.
Vane: I feel like tea. You want some, Lancey?
Lancelot: Sure, why not.
Lancelot: Heh, you always were a busybody.
Vane: Eh, you might have a point. Can't say I've noticed myself.
Lancelot: Thanks, Vane. I really mean that.
Vane: All right, I'll be in the kitchen.
Lancelot: (You've always been by my side for as long as I can remember.)
Vane returns to the room with steaming cups of tea and a plate of cookies.
Vane: Tea is served! Drink up!
Lancelot and Vane chat idly while sipping their tea.
Eventually there is a pause in their talk, and Vane's expression grows serious.
Vane: Lancey, what's bothering you?
Lancelot: Huh? What makes you say that?
Vane: You can't hide it from me! It's written all over your face!
Vane: Not to mention your room's a disaster area whenever you're bothered by something.
Lancelot: Ugh, am I that easy to read?
Vane: Hehe. Well, I'll leave the jokes at that.
Vane: So why don't you fill me in?
Vane: I probably won't have anything insightful to say, but maybe it'll make you feel better.
Lancelot accepts Vane's kind words.
Lancelot: Yeah, you do have a knack for looking at things impartially.
Lancelot: I've been thinking about what I lack as a knight.
Lancelot: What do you think a knight should protect?
Vane: Huh? Well. Let's see here...
Vane: What should a knight protect... protect... protect...
Vane desperately tries to come up with an answer to Lancelot's question.
Vane: Sorry, Lancey, but I'm stumped when it comes to tough stuff like this.
Vane: I just try to protect the ones I care about with my own two hands.
Vane: I mean, that's pretty much it. King Carl, our friends in the order, the citizens... I want to protect them all!
Lancelot: Heh, now that's a very Vane-like answer. I feel the same way you do.
Lancelot: But what if the citizens are unsatisfied with the king's rule? What then?
Lancelot: When the interests of the king and the people diverge, what is the role of a knight? What is my role?
Vane: Hmm, His Highness is a kind soul who always puts his people's needs first.
Vane: There must be a misunderstanding if the people aren't happy with a king like that.
Vane unfolds his arms and slaps his knee as if stumbling across a revelation.
Vane: That's it, Lancey! We can break that misunderstanding, one piece at a time!
Vane: Our country's full of good people. If we can just show them what the king is thinking, then I'm sure they'll come around!
Vane: After all it's part of our job to make sure everyone lives in peace and harmony, isn't it?
Vane: Now that's a goal worth fighting for. Right, Lancey?
A smile of satisfaction flashes across Vane's face.
Lancelot: Snort... Pfft... Fwahaha!
Vane: What? Was it something I said?
Lancelot: Sorry, I shouldn't have laughed. But you're right, Vane.
Lancelot: You're a true friend I can always rely on.
Lancelot: I feel a burden being lifted thanks to you.
Lancelot: Break time is over. Let's ask (Captain) to fly us back to the capital.
Vane: Nice! Now that's the Lancey I know!
The Grandcypher heads back to the capital at Lancelot's request.
The Loyal Knight's Resolve: Scene 3
Lancelot is about to go to the castle, but Siegfried wishes to know if Lancelot has found the answer he has been searching for. Siegfried challenges Lancelot to a duel in order to test Lancelot's convictions.
The Grandcypher arrives at the port of Feendrache.
Lancelot steps off the airship and is greeted by Siegfried.
Siegfried: So you came back, Lancelot.
Lancelot: Siegfried! Did you come here just for me?
Siegfried: Yes. The king is waiting for you.
Siegfried: But before that, there is something that I have to ask you.
Siegfried: Did you find an answer to what a knight should be?
Lancelot steps off the airship. Siegfried calls out to him before he can continue on to the castle.
Lancelot: What is it, Siegfried?
Siegfried: Did you find an answer to what a knight should be?Continue 1
Lancelot: Humph. You're always in tune with my anxieties.
Lancelot looks at Siegfried with an unshaken gaze.
Lancelot: I have my answer. I'm no longer lost.
Siegfried: Oh? And what is that, if I may ask?
Lancelot brings his fist to his chest.
Lancelot: A loyal subject doesn't blindly follow a king's decrees. Loyalty means correcting the king when he has been led down the wrong path.
Lancelot: A knight doesn't just protect the king from threats. He protects the will of a king who loves his country and is loved by his subjects.
Lancelot: I think that's how true chivalry can play a role in protecting the realm.
Siegfried: I see. That's a good answer.
Siegfried: But to achieve that will take strength wrought from steadfast determination that can withstand any danger.
Siegfried: Allow me to test your resolve, Lancelot. Show me your chivalry!
Lancelot: Very well. I'll meet you head on!
The Loyal Knight's Resolve: Scene 4
After being recognized by Siegfried for his swordsmanship, Lancelot receives an apology from King Carl for his shortcomings. Lancelot renews his pledge of fealty to the king and Feendrache.
Siegfried: Hmm. I detect no hesitancy in your swordsmanship. You've come into your own, Lancelot.
Lancelot: There's still much I have to learn, but I won't be stopped anymore.
Lancelot, victorious over Siegfried, returns to the castle.
King Carl: Siegfried has told me of your troubles. I'm sorry about all of this.
King Carl: My weakness as a statesman has been a great burden on your shoulders.
Lancelot: That's not true, Your Highness!
Lancelot: My indecisive heart was a result of my inexperience as a knight and nothing more.
Lancelot: But knowing my own inadequacies is what drives me forward.
King Carl: I see. Lancelot, your king and your country need you. Please, we must place our faith in you.
Lancelot: I don't deserve such praise. I aim merely to serve the kingdom with loyal devotion.
Lancelot: Should I have doubts about Your Highness's judgment from this point on...
Lancelot: I will relay my opinions unflinchingly at the risk of insubordination.
King Carl: Hmm... That's a terrifying thought...
King Carl: Heh heh heh. Well, try to go easy on me.
Lancelot: Your Highness!
His torment dispelled, Lancelot has turned over a new leaf as a knight.
From this day forth he will be an ardent knight who defends his king and his country; his people and his friends.
Now, Then, and Always
While visiting the capital of Feendrache, Lancelot and Vane overhear two castle maids talking about them. This sparks a lively conversation between the pair about their childhood, wherein each reveals how much he had respected the other, reinforcing their bonds of friendship.
The knights of the Order of the White Dragons have taken work in other countries in order to bring some foreign money back to Feendrache.
Lancelot and Vane have taken leave from (Captain)'s crew in order to do their part for the restoration of their country.
On their first visit to the capital city of Feendrache in quite some time, they meet with King Carl. Afterwards, the pair are in high spirits.
Vane: Ha ha! It was good to see His Majesty looking so well, eh, Lancey?
Lancelot: Yes! Let's try not to cause him any more anxiety!
Vane: Yeah, you betcha!
Lancelot and Vane are strolling through the castle exchanging lighthearted banter when they overhear some maids talking.
Cheerful Maid: Hey! So is it true Lancelot and Vane are childhood friends?
Quiet Maid: Why, yes, it is. Didn't you know?
Cheerful Maid: Really? I never knew! No wonder they get on so well.
Quiet Maid: Hee hee, those two have excelled from a young age.
Cheerful Maid: Wow... That's so cool... It's like they're from a whole different world!
Lancelot: Ha ha! Hear that, Vane?
Vane: Ha ha, yeah... They might've been shocked if they knew the real you back then, though.
Vane: You were quite the mischief-maker back then!
Vane: Like remember that time at the festival, when you saw through that stall owner's bogus lottery game and scared the daylights out of him to teach him a lesson?
Vane: Or when you played that trick on Halloween and got scolded by that old couple?
Lancelot: Ugh... That was... I mean, come on, that was a long time ago!
Vane: Ha ha! Good thing you matured fast, Lancey!
Lancelot: Humph. If you wanna play that game, then... You might be a little taller than me now, but remember how small you were back then?
Lancelot: And what a crybaby you were? I seem to remember you were always saying how scary and painful sword training was, hmm?
Vane: Ha ha ha! Did I say that? But, well...
Vane: I'll admit I was always a crybaby back then...That's why I looked up to ya so much, Lancey.
Vane: I mean, you've had that strong and reliable vibe going on since you were a kid. Always admired that.
Vane: It was just awesome when you got that recommendation for knighthood.
Lancelot: You know, when I became a knight, I actually thought you were better.
Lancelot: You may have been a crybaby and on the weak side, but you used your desire to help others to drive yourself toward becoming a knight.
Lancelot: You were the one who taught me that strength meant more than being good with a blade.
Vane: Heh heh! Guess I have my uses, then!
Lancelot: You know very well how invaluable you are to me. I've always counted on you, and I always will.
Vane: Right back at ya, Lancey!
Lancelot and Vane from the Order of the White Dragons reflect on their childhood friendship, which has held fast over time.
And when the next disaster inevitably befalls Feendrache, these two will be sure to work together to overcome it.
