Father and Daughter Reunited

She couldn’t look away from the swordsman, a swordsman wrapped in what seemed to be a mage’s robes. It was Aletheia, the father who had left home when she was but a child. The old man couldn’t quite conceal his surprise at the unexpected reunion, either. At last, he told the story of why he had left his daughter behind. Having finally learned the truth, Teena hoped her brother Lucius would finally be able to let go of his hatred for their father. Aletheia steeled himself to face his son once more. Aletheia, having failed his family, chose the only path left for him: that of the sword. What would the future hold for him?



Early afternoon found Teena on the deck of the ship, seeing something she wasn’t quite sure what to make of.
Teena: ... hm?
There he stood upon the deck, a tricorne sitting atop hair as white as snow, his robe brushing lightly against the planks. Teena couldn’t look away.
You would think the man was a mage based on clothes alone, but the robes and hat barely concealed a frightening bulk of muscle that couldn’t have belonged to anyone but a warrior.
Teena: ...! You...
Aletheia: ...
Teena: Dad.
Aletheia: ?! That voice... I know that voice...
Aletheia: ... Teena! I’ll be damned!
Teena: Oh, gosh... dad...
Aletheia: Teena... it’s been a while. Never thought I’d see you in a place like this.
Aletheia: Heh... seems like you got your mother’s good looks. ... glad you’re doing well for yourself.
Teena: Snff... what... where have you been... what were you doing?!
Teena: Waaaah! Snff... hic...
Aletheia: I’m sorry, Teena... I really am...
Teena’s wails brought Vyrn and Lyria running, anxious to find out what was going on.
Vyrn: What’s the deal? Did something happen, Teena?
Lyria: Hm... what’s going on, Aletheia?
Aletheia: Hrm... well...
Aletheia: Never expected it to happen on the Grandcypher... I’d like you to meet Teena. My daughter...
Vyrn: Wait. What?! You’re her dad?! Teena said he ran away when she was just a kid!
Lyria: Wow?! Th-thats, um... quite the coincidence...
Teena: Waaaah! Right?! What have you been doing?! Why didn’t you come see me before?
Teena: Snff... tell me, dad... why...
Aletheia shared with her the story of his wandering. He’d chosen to fight, leaving his family behind in hope that the the people after him would leave them alone.
But the day that the goblins attacked the village... well, even the Sage of the Sword couldn’t have foreseen that.
He had failed them, and the shame of seeing their faces again was too much to bear. And so he devoted himself single-mindedly to the sword.
Teena: Lucius... he really hates you, you know.
Teena: Mother kept telling him not to blame you, but she never got through to him.
Teena: Sigh... I don’t really understand it, myself. Sounds like one of those guy things, to be honest...
Teena: I just... I hope you can talk to him one day...
Teena: It would be so nice if we could live together again, just the three of us.
Teena: You and Lucius are the only family I have in this world...
Aletheia: ... I feel the same way, Teena. Not a day goes by that I haven’t thought it.
Aletheia: I’ll talk to him one day. Count on it. And if he doesn’t want to hear me out, well, what else could I expect?
Vyrn: Hrm... sounds like it’s a whole thing. But hey, talking’s what people do!
Lyria: Exactly! Families aren’t supposed to hate each other...
Lyria: U-Um... so! Just let us know if there’s anything we can do to help, Aletheia! And you too, Teena!
Teena: Hehe. Sure. Thanks, Vyrn and Lyria!
Aletheia: Hope I can count on you two. Especially you, lizard.
Teena hoped her father and brother would be able to make amends. Though she told her father she had faith in him, her eyes were filled with an unfathomable sorrow.
A relationship fraught with misunderstanding. One can only imagine where it might lead...
Aletheia: Lucius... guess it’s about time I faced him, eh?
