The Fated Child
When (Captain) and company hear a commotion in an alley and run in to investigate, they find a boy with hands wreathed in red flames and blue lightning. He's sick of being used by adults, and the crew's kindness draws him to them.
(Captain) and company hear a scream as they pass an alley in a certain town.
Ruffian 1: Argh!
Ruffian 2: Oof!
Both Ruffians: Yikes! He's some kinda monster! Run for it!
Katalina: What? Did they say monster?
Vyrn: No way! I've got a bad feeling about this. Let's go, (Captain)!
???: Huff... Huff...
Katalina: Are you okay? Huh? Y-you're—
Vyrn: Whoa! What's up with you, kid? Your hands... They're on fire and... uh ... lightning?
Strange Boy: Damn... More of you, huh? You just don't know when to quit!
Strange Boy: I'm tired of following your stupid orders! Eat this!
Katalina: Wait! Calm down! We're here to help!
Strange Boy: Shut up! How stupid do you think I am? I'll never—
Katalina: Huh? So you're injured, huh? Quit being silly and come here.
Strange Boy: What? Aren't you guys scared of me?
Katalina: Hee-hee... Well, we are a little surprised, but you don't seem so scary.
Strange Boy: Sorry about that. I shouldn't have tried to attack you.
Vyrn: So what's the deal with your power? If you wanna talk, we'll listen.
Alec: I'm Alec. This power... I dunno. I've had it since I was a baby.
Alec's innate powers are supremely powerful and don't require the use of spells or incantations.
Despite their fear, the adults in Alec's life tried to use him for their own purposes, so he chose a life of solitude.
Alec says that, though his power is no small burden, using it is his reason for existence.
Alec: My power is why I live, and I refuse to let anyone control or use me.
Alec: I live as I wish. And if my fight to continue doing so ends up killing me, so be it!
Lyria: Wait just a minute! Are you really okay with that?
Alec: What did you say?
Alec: Wait. Where'd you come from anyway?
Lyria: Huh? Well, from (Captain) of course.
What's going on here?
What's going on here?
Vyrn: Heh-heh! If that's all it takes to scare you, you've got a ways to go, kid.
Alec: Excuse me?
Lyria: Vyrn's right. It's a big world. There's probably a lot of stuff out there you have no idea about.
Lyria: Don't you think it'd be a waste to die here before you see any of it?
Alec: The world, huh?
Alec: Heh. This town's too small to hold me anyway.
Alec: You mean my power? You think it'll be useful?
Katalina: Why wouldn't it? You'll probably stop hurting yourself once you learn how to control it better.
Alec: Heh... There's no one left for me here anyway.
Alec: All right. I'll go with you guys.
Lyria: That's great! That power of yours sure is strong, but it also seems honest and warm.
Lyria: Hee-hee... I'm so happy you're coming with us!
Katalina: It sure is great, isn't it, Lyria. And Alec? You promise you'll be more careful?
Vyrn: What's with you? Hey, are you blushing, kid?
Alec: Sh-shut up! I'm not blushing! And keep your eyes off of me!
Katalina: Hey! That's not the way to our airship!
Thus Alec, a boy of fire and lightning, joins (Captain) and company.
Nothing melts loneliness better than a power strong, honest, and warm, and now it will surely aid Alec's new friends.
