Ultimate Weapon

The crew stops by the Valtz Duchy where they run into Io's old friend, Almeida. She explains her desire to forge the perfect weapon modeled after a certain masked man's scythe. After coming to the idea of imbuing weapons with the power of primal beasts, she asks to join the crew who often cross paths with them.

The crew stops by the Valtz Duchy for a quest.
Io waltzes around town with (Captain) and crew, elated to be back in her hometown after a long absence.
Io: Hey, check out this hair ornament!
Lyria: Wow, that's incredible design work!
Vyrn: It sure is! With the steel industry booming in Valtz, it's no wonder their stuff is some of the best around!
Io: Well, what do you think? Should I buy it?
???: Those pigtails... There's no way it's...
???: Hey! Io, is that you?
Io: Huh? Oh! Almeida!
The girl known as Almeida makes her way through the crowd and clutches Io in a tight embrace.
Io happily snuggles against her with a great, big smile on her face.
Almeida: You should've let me know you were coming to visit!
Io: Sorry, Almeida! Did you just get off work?
Almeida: Yup. Unearthed some real beauties in the mine today. Maybe I can use 'em to make you something.
Io: Yay! Can you make some for (Captain) and the rest of the crew, too? Oh, that's right. I haven't properly introduced you yet.
Almeida: You were involved in the incident with the archduke, right? Name's Almeida. Io and I go way back.
Almeida: Anyway, I'm starving! Let's celebrate this little reunion with some food. On me of course!
The crew does some catching up in the mess hall until Almeida is greeted by a few sturdily-built men.
Worker 1: Hiya, Boss! Done for the day?
Worker 2: Sorry for the trouble today, Boss! I've got the next round!
Almeida: Boys! At ease!
Everybody just relax!
Lyria: Haha, this forewoman is really something!
Almeida: They really bend over backwards for me, no matter how many times I tell 'em not to.
Vyrn: Well, that's no surprise! You handle weapon forging at the factory too, right?
Io: Haha, isn't she incredible? She's also the youngest person to do so in the history of Valtz!
Almeida: What can I say? When you are what you do, right? Or something like that... But stop praising me already!
Almeida: Now... Back to what we were talking about earlier. How'd you all like to check out that underground factory?
Io: Huh? You mean the one used by the Astrals to create primals way back when?
Almeida: Yup! It's all people talk about ever since the archduke's fiasco.
Almeida: He'd always brush me off when I asked him the location. Said it was dangerous and crawling with monsters.
Almeida: But with you guys here, it should be fine! So are you ready to roll?
Io: Sure, but why do you want to go to such a—
Almeida: Much obliged! Let's head down there after giving our stomachs a rest!
Worker 3: Good timing, Boss! I wanted to discuss the mining on the second block, and—Oh, sorry! Were you in the middle of something?
Almeida: Can you make it quick? I'm chatting with some old friends of mine!
Worker 3: Old friends? Wait, does that include the masked man?
Almeida: Eep!
Lyria: Hmm? A masked man?
Almeida: Gah, don't you go blabbering on about that! Io, we're leaving!
Vyrn: What was that all about? She turned red as a beet!
Io: Hmm...
The crew fights off the monsters blocking the path to the factory. Upon arrival, Almeida excitedly rummages through the parts lying around.
Almeida: Whoa! This must be where Valtz's steelmaking technology comes from!
Almeida: Can't make heads or tails of this, though. Assuming this is the power source, where do the wires go?
Io: Hey, Almeida! Tell me more about the masked man. We swore to tell each other if we had a crush on someone, didn't we?
Almeida: A c-c-crush? N-no, it's nothing like that!
Lyria: But he's important to you, right?
Almeida: Hm, it's more complicated than that.
Almeida: It happened a few days after you left the island, Io. I was working deep in the mines when a bunch of monsters attacked.
Almeida: Suddenly, this masked guy I'd never seen before shows up to the rescue.
Almeida: I have no idea who he is, and he disappeared in the blink of an eye. But I loved what he was packing.
Vyrn: So it was love at first sight, eh?
Almeida: L-l-love at first sight? Don't go saying creepy things!
Almeida: I was referring to his weapon—a scythe that had its own aura like I never imagined possible!
Almeida: Since then I've been trying out a few things, hoping to create something just like it!
Almeida: The Vaserav Hammer here is my finest work yet!
Lyria: That hammer is so cool! What's Vaserav mean?
Almeida: It's the name of the masked man. I'm still a long way off from making something as awesome as that scythe, though.
Io: Aha, so you named your weapon after the mysterious masked man's—
Almeida: Stop it! I know what you're trying to say!
Almeida: Sigh, I wish you guys would stop prying like the boys at the coal mine always do.
Vyrn: Nah, you're just overreacting. What were you looking for down here, anyway?
Almeida: The more I tried forging the scythe, the more I felt it couldn't possibly be any ordinary handiwork.
Almeida: I was hoping to find materials that would get me closer to what I want, but there's nothing special about the steel down here.
Lyria: That's too bad. But does this mean that the Astrals created primals using ordinary steel?
Almeida: I would imagine partially at least. But the power source must be from the Astrals...
Almeida: Which must mean it's possible to instill the power of the primals into steel, right?
Io: Huh? Why are you asking me? You answered your own question, Almeida.
Almeida: Eureka! You're right!
Almeida: I did it, Io! I've figured out the scythe's secret!
Vyrn: Oh yeah? Mind sharing?
Almeida: I have to inject the power of a primal beast into the weapon. Except I have no idea how to do that...
Almeida: Whatever the case, I can tell from looking around the factory that the people of Valtz used to do it all the time. I just have to study up on primal beasts.
Almeida: Hey (Captain), you fight primal beasts all the time, right? Any chance you could take me along with you?
  1. Of course!
  2. What'll happen to the mines?

Choose: Of course!

Almeida: Thanks a bunch! Since the archduke approves of you, I'm sure I'll feel right at home!
Go to "Continue 1"

Choose: What'll happen to the mines?

Almeida: No worries. I was only in charge of one block, and Valtz has more than enough talented miners to pick up the slack.

Continue 1

Io: Yay! I get to travel with Almeida!
Almeida: Yay is right! Anyway, I'll be right back. Gotta find someone to take over for me at the mines. And I've gotta let the archduke know I'm leaving too!
Lyria: Haha, the Grandcypher's going to be full of energy with her around!
Vyrn: That's for sure! I've been wondering, though... Where have I heard the name Vaserav before?
Almeida joins the crew in the hopes of creating the perfect weapon.
From weapons imbued with the power of primal beasts to a mysterious masked man—much remains shrouded in mystery.
