Conqueror of the Eternals
Having assembled all ten Eternals into the crew, (Captain) receives an invitation from Seofon to celebrate their reunion. However, an ulterior motive is soon revealed when Seofon asks (Captain) to duel against a giant tortoise—which turns out to be the very island they stood on.
At last, (Captain)'s talents have finally been acknowledged by all ten Eternals.
One day, a letter arrives from Seofon, leader of the Eternals.
Skipping through the pleasantries, (Captain) finds that it is an invitation to meet at a nearby island.
Curious to see what Seofon has planned, the captain shifts the Grandcypher's course to the coordinates marked.
At the indicated location, a mysterious building rests deep inside a forest.
Taking a deep breath, (Captain) cautiously takes a step inside.
Seofon: Welcome, welcome, (Captain)! Glad you could make it all the way out here!
To (Captain)'s surprise, all ten Eternals have gathered in this single room.
Seofon: Ahem... Sorry—didn't mean to scare you like that! Anywho, I heard that you had acquainted yourself with all ten of us!
Seofon: So I thought I'd arrange a little get-together for you and the other Eternals!
Seofon: More importantly—behold! All ten Eternals, in one place! I can't believe it's happening!
Seofon beams incredulously at his own accomplishment.
Tweyen: Hehe... Good for you, Seofon. You must be proud.
Niyon: You look quite pleased yourself, Tweyen.
Tweyen: I mean, j-just a little! I'm not making a huge deal out of it or anything!
Seofon: No, Tweyen—this is indeed a big deal.
Seofon: The biggest of deals! You could say it's a miracle!
Anre: Indeed... When was the last time the lot of us assembled in one place?
Seofon: Right? That's what I'm talking about. And it's all thanks to (Captain) bringing us together once again!
Feower: So basically, you weren't able to do it on your own?
Seofon: Heh. Feower... going for the jugular as usual.
Tien: Feower, play nice. Honesty is not always the best policy.
Seofon: That doesn't make me feel much better, Tien!
Threo: Enough banter already! We're all here now, so gimme the meat! You're hungry too, aren'tcha, (Captain)?
Seofon: Wait, Threo! It isn't time yet!
Fif: We have a bunch of snacks here too, (Captain)! Let's eat 'em!
Seofon: Hold your horses, Fif! Save the snacks for later!
Niyon: Everyone's glad you're here, (Captain). Myself included, of course.
Seofon: That's right, Niyon! In fact, I think even I can hear everybody's melodies tonight! Haha!
Eahta: This merriment... I do quite enjoy it.
Seofon: That's the spirit, Eahta! Let's make merry into the night!
Seox: Hm. That's enough for pleasantries and chatter... Surely (Captain) wants to eat as well.
Seofon: Y-you're absolutely right, Seox! Let's not keep anyone waiting any longer!
Upon seeing the usual banter between the Eternals, (Captain) finally lets loose with a laugh.
Having almost forgotten about (Captain) for a moment, Seofon quickly recomposes himself for the occasion.
Seofon: Okay then, let's get this party started—but first, a toast!
Seofon: Oh, that's right. (Captain), you still can't drink yet, but there's plenty of tea and juice for you!
Seofon: And without any further ado... Here's to the Eternals!
The Eternals: The Eternals!
Choose: The Eternals!
- The Eternals!
Lively cheers can be heard around the table as everyone raises their glasses to start the festivities.
Seofon: (Phew... Being the leader sure ain't easy.)
(Captain) continues making lively conversation into the night with the Eternals.
As the party draws to an end, Seofon scoots closer to (Captain).
Seofon: Say, (Captain)... care to join me outside for a bit?
(Captain) agrees to the proposal and follows Seofon outside.
Seofon: Phew, today was really one for the ages, huh?
Seofon: But for real though, I was pretty surprised when I heard you'd caught the attention of all ten Eternals.
Seofon: It's like, what can't you do, am I right?
Seofon looks off into the distance and continues his monologue.
Seofon: All the other Eternals that came out tonight have acknowledged your talents, yeah?
Seofon: But there's still one more person you need to convince that you're the real deal.
Despite not being quite sure what Seofon is getting at, (Captain) nods in response.
Seofon: So how about it? You think you're up for a trial of sorts?
Choose: Bring it on.
- Bring it on.
- But I wanna eat some more...
Seofon: For real? Thanks! Heh, I just knew you'd say yes!
Seofon: All right! Let's get down to it then!Choose: But I wanna eat some more...
Seofon: No way! C'mon, please!
Seofon: Please, please, pretty please! I'll give you anything you want!
After some begging and theatrics from Seofon, (Captain) reluctantly agrees.
Seofon: Haha... You don't look like you're feelin' up to it right now.
Seofon: But a yes is a yes! Let's get to it!Continue 1
The captain asks Seofon where this mysterious opponent could be.
Seofon: Oh, your opponent? She's already here.
Seofon puts his palm to the ground beneath him and begins to murmur an incantation of sorts.
The surrounding trees thrash violently as the ground beneath them begins to tremble.
Seofon: Oh, one thing I forgot to mention—this island we're standing on is actually the back of a giant tortoise!
Seofon's nonchalant tone is in stark contrast to the chaos unfolding before (Captain).
Seofon: Whoops! Hold on, I must've left the security on!
Seofon: I'll save the explanation for later. For now, just show it what you've got.
Seofon: Come on... Something like this shouldn't be a big deal for you, right, (Captain)?
Seofon: Chop chop, let's go! You've got this, baby!
(Captain) is left with no choice but to face the enormous tortoise head on.
Conqueror of the Eternals: Scene 2
(Captain) successfully completes Seofon's test against the Eternal's pet tortoise, which also serves as its base of operations. After proving to have what it takes to reign supreme across the skies, (Captain) is given a new outfit matching the other Eternals to commemorate the occasion.
After successfully completing the trial, (Captain) returns to look for Seofon.
However, (Captain) finds not only Seofon, but all of the Eternals awaiting the captain's return.
Tweyen: Did you succeed? You aren't injured, are you?
Niyon: Relax. She will attack (Captain) no longer.
Seofon: Great job, (Captain). I knew that you had it in you!
Threo: Seofon, Seofon! Which of us did it faster? (Captain) or me?
Fif: Hey, me too! Did (Captain) beat me? Who was faster?
Seofon: Hmm... Who knows? I wasn't keeping track of time.
Feower: Needlessly dramatic as usual, aren't you.
Tien: Yes... There was no need to put (Captain) to the test. We already knew what the outcome would be.
Seofon: I suppose that's true, buuut... It's kinda like a tradition, you know?
Anre: The administering of the test is proof itself that we acknowledge (Captain)'s might.
Anre: We wouldn't want to put (Captain) in danger without reason, of course.
Eahta: Remarkable, (Captain), how far your masteries have come along.
Seox: You really are one-of-a-kind, (Captain).
After receiving a warm and unexpected reception from the Eternals, (Captain) looks to Seofon for an explanation.
Seofon: Heh-heh... allow me to explain!
Seofon: This turtle here's named Terra—she serves as both the headquarters and pet for the Eternals!
Seofon: Our own headquarters rest on the back of this very tortoise!
Seofon: Well? Is that epic or what?
Seofon's fervent enthusiasm is met with indifferent silence from (Captain).
Seofon: A-ahem... Terra is a wise one, allowing only the scents of those I have deemed worthy upon her back.
Seofon: So that's why I had her test your might in a battle of strength!
Seofon: Look at that! It looks like Terra's taken a liking to you, (Captain)!
(Captain) lets out a sigh, relieved to see everything back to normal.
Seofon: Now now, (Captain), don't be like that! This is where you celebrate!
In the midst of his excitement, Seofon has a moment of realization and quickly beckons (Captain).
Seofon: Oh yeah, I almost forgot! Come here for a bit!
Seofon takes (Captain) into the building with him.
He emerges shortly after, but the captain can still be heard rummaging inside.
(Captain) finally comes out, now fully garbed in an elaborate new get-up.
Seofon: Well? Heh, speechless as expected! I had the whole ensemble tailor-made just for you!
Tweyen: It looks lovely on you, (Captain)!
Niyon: Hehe... We're matching now.
Seofon: Yeah, now that's what I'm talking about! I knew this would totally be worth it!
Feower: You could've saved all of us some time and just handed it over to (Captain) from the start.
Tien: Well, that's Seofon for you... Always one to put on a show.
Seox: Yeah. It's all because of this guy that we all ended up here somehow.
Seofon: Ahaha! I'll go ahead and take those as compliments!
Fif: Yay! Now (Captain)'s an Eternal too!
Seofon winces slightly in reaction to Fif's off-hand comment.
Seofon: Welllll... Not exactly. The outfit itself doesn't make (Captain) an Eternal.
Anre: Indeed. (Captain) still has a long road ahead.
Anre: Whether or not (Captain) has what it takes to reign supreme across the skies is not for us to decide.
Threo: Eternal, shmeternal—people should do whatever they want to do, including (Captain)!
Eahta: A crown bestowed does not change the nature of one's reality. Greatness in its purest form must be taken through one's own volition.
Seofon: And more importantly, if (Captain) joined the Eternals...
Seofon: We wouldn't have a clean even number anymore! Bahahaha!
The crowd doesn't give Seofon the laughs he was looking for.
Seofon: Hm. It hurts to admit, but everyone here seems to hold you to a higher regard than me.
Seofon: You know, if it were possible, I'd even offer to give you my spot as leader of the Eternals!
Feower: I'd be fine with that. In fact, how about we do it right now?
Seox: Ah, agreed. A change in leadership would be nice.
Seofon: Ahahaha! Ouch... Good one, guys!
Threo: Oh? There's only one way to settle this—survival of the fittest!
Fif: Haha! Yeah, (Captain)! Get him, get him!
Seofon: H-h-hold on just a second! No one said anything about a duel or anything like that!
Tweyen: Wait, are you guys serious? Niyon, what do you think?
Niyon: Hmm... It would be interesting to watch, I think.
Seofon: Like... For real, for real?
The other nine Eternals turn to look at Seofon, now visibly growing nervous.
Tien: You guys, I think we've gone far enough. I'm starting to feel bad for him.
Tweyen: Hehe, yeah... After all, we don't want to spoil the mood after (Captain) came all the way out here for us!
Seofon: Tien... Tweyen... Thank you...
Feower and Seox stand down after Seofon is thrown a lifeline.
Feower: Yeah. No point in talking more about this anyway.
Seox: Let's head back and finish the rest of the food.
Seofon: Wait, you guys!
The two head back inside without another word.
Threo: Yeah, there's still some meat left! And cake!
Eahta: So the charades end here. Let us return.
Fif: Yeah, let's get movin', movin'! Don't look so glum, Seofon! We'll have some candy!
Anre: Heh... This is another way of showing their affection for you, eh?
Seofon: Ahaha... That's some tough love, I gotta say.
The rest of the Eternals make their way back inside.
Niyon: Sorry, I didn't actually mean it.
Tweyen: We're all on your team, Seofon.
Tien: Hm... Cheer up. Everyone's waiting inside.
Seofon: Thanks. I appreciate the sentiments, guys—just leave me alone for a bit.
Seofon manages a smile as Niyon, Tweyen, and Tien head back inside.
It's just (Captain) and Seofon left outside now.
Seofon: Oh? (Captain), you aren't going in yet?
Not quite ready to go back inside, (Captain) gestures no.
Seofon: Oh, don't mind me... I'm just gonna stay out here for a little longer. Go on ahead.
Seofon turns away from (Captain) and looks into the horizon.
Seofon: Sigh... Maybe I should just quit being the leader, after all.
(Captain) gently puts a consoling hand on the crestfallen Seofon.
Choose: Come on, let's go back inside.
- Come on, let's go back inside.
- Smile a little.
Seofon: Y-you're right. I didn't mean to spoil the mood with my sulking, heh...Choose: Smile a little.
Seofon: Sniff... Good idea... Thanks, (Captain)...Continue 1
Seofon: You know what? Let's keep this party rockin', (Captain)!
Seofon: What do you say? Come on!
(Captain) returns to the rest of the Eternals with Seofon.
Despite all that had transpired, the group makes merry for hours into the night.
