Cagliostro's Grief

At the island where Cagliostro's sister spent her final years, the crew finds members from the Alchemist Guild of Helmuth and agents crawling around.

The crew lands on a small island to search for any leads about existential dissolution.
The island is also home to Cagliostro's sister, where she rests in eternal peace.
Cagliostro: ...
Vyrn: All righty! So we're going this way, right? To your sister's, um...
Cagliostro: My sister's grave? Yep, it's this way.
Cagliostro: Your jitteriness is making me jittery. No need to beat around the bush; she passed away thousands of years ago.
Lyria: Um, so... why is your sister buried here anyway? I thought you two weren't from this island.
Cagliostro: This is where she spent her final years. With her husband having passed away and her kids grown up, she gave up alchemy and retired here to live out the rest of her days.
Cagliostro: This is my first time coming here ever since you guys broke my seal... Gotta love these remote islands; hardly anything's changed at all.
Vyrn: Her final years, huh... So your sister didn't try using a new body?
Cagliostro: That's right. She preferred to go out the natural way.
Lyria: The natural way... What kind of person was your sister anyway?
Cagliostro: I guess you could say she was the cheerful and sensitive type, nothing out of the ordinary really...
Cagliostro: What really stood out was her talent in alchemy. She'd often assist with my research and even help train my disciples.
Cagliostro: Other than that she was a normal person just like anyone else. She never yearned for truth or immortality; she wished for a normal life more than anything else.
Vyrn: Cagliostro with a normal sister? Kinda hard to imagine.
Lyria: It sounds like you two got along really well—doing research together and supporting each other every step of the way...
Cagliostro: As siblings from a small rural town, that's pretty much what we were limited to.
Cagliostro: Truth is... she was happy the whole time.
Alchemist: What are you folks doing out here! This island is off-limits to outsiders!
Cagliostro: Hm?
Vyrn: I know that face! He's with the Helmuth Guild!
Alchemist: So you know about us then. Good, that makes things easier. This is our territory!
Lyria: T-territory? But this is where Cagliostro—
Alchemist: Cagliostro? You mean to say that little girl is the founder?
Cagliostro: Humph... I should be the one asking you what you're doing here.
Alchemist: Damn it! Agents, we have intruders on the loose!
Alchemist: Make them sorry they ever came! I'll call for reinforcements!
Cagliostro: Tch... You're not getting away!

Cagliostro's Grief: Scene 2

(Captain) and crew chase after the alchemists to find a most glorious structure. It appears to be a memorial constructed by the Alchemist Guild of Helmuth, triggering Cagliostro's ire for a reason unknown.

(Captain) and company defeat the agents and run after the alchemist from earlier...
Only to find a fancy and austere mansion-esque building.
Cagliostro: ...!
Vyrn: I'm guessing this building belongs to the guild.
Lyria: Look at that bronze statue of a lady... Almost makes this place feel like a palace!
Vyrn: What's that inscription over there?
"Welcome to the memorial of one of the pioneers of alchemy."
Lyria: "In loving memory of the founder's sister."
Cagliostro: Hah... Bwahahaha!
Cagliostro: Ridiculous... Absolutely ridiculous!
Vyrn: C-Cagliostro?
Cagliostro: Can you believe it? They've turned this place into a tourist attraction!
Cagliostro: That asinine riffraff dared to turn my sister into a symbol of the guild after sealing me away...
Cagliostro: Showing absolutely no regard for her personality or wishes! They've even dressed up her grave as if it's some kind of freak show!
Lyria: Cagliostro? Let's go after her, (Captain)! She went inside the building!

Cagliostro's Grief: Scene 3

Cagliostro wreaks havoc as she makes her way through every room in the memorial. When she explains that this is the spot of her sister's grave, (Captain) and crew assist her in bringing the structure down.

Cagliostro: It's payback time!
Cagliostro: One of the pioneers of alchemy, my foot!
Cagliostro: Holy Mother of Alchemic Research? How in the frickin' hell does a tangerine-loving country girl even become that?
Cagliostro: Made countless donations to alchemic research? She was the type to foolishly give all her money away to villages with no medical care!
Cagliostro destroys every flashy exhibit that comes into view as she proceeds through the memorial.
The crew catches up and attempts to calm her down.
Cagliostro: Grrgh! Oh, it's you guys...
Vyrn: Whew, finally caught up... All the exhibits and the entire gallery are fried.
Lyria: Um... What happened here?
Cagliostro: You sure as hell bet something did. This is what we've been looking for all along—my sister's grave.
Vyrn: Wha? A fancy-schmancy place like this?
Lyria: But you said your sister...
Cagliostro: That's right. She wanted a normal life.
Cagliostro: But she spent half her life helping me with my research. Could hardly call that normal.
Cagliostro: When she got older, I made sure to buy this peaceful little island just for her.
Cagliostro: If not in life, I at least wanted her to idle away peacefully in the afterlife. It was my final gift to her as family...
Cagliostro: ...
Vyrn: I'm sorry to hear that... Damn that alchemist guild!
Lyria: This is awful! How could they do such a thing to a grave?
Alchemist: So this is where you reprobates were! We'll make you regret trespassing on these holy grounds!
Vyrn: We're the ones that are gonna make you regret ever setting foot here! She never wanted any of this for her grave!
Lyria: That's right! What you've done here is just wrong!
Alchemist: Humph, as if you insignificant nobodies would ever understand. Any type of academic organization needs an absolute authority symbolizing all that is ideal in order to thrive.
Cagliostro: Oh? Authority to sustain an organization?
Alchemist: Eeep!
Cagliostro: Hehehe... I'd let you off the hook if it were for the pursuit of truth, but you're telling me you built this place for something so trivial?
Cagliostro: Ouroboros! Devour every last one of these pathetic bottom feeders!
Cagliostro: Wreck all their fake artifacts, and hell, you might as well swallow this whole damn building while you're at it!

Cagliostro's Grief: Scene 4

Cagliostro returns the land to its natural state as a vast green expanse. Though she finds nothing about existential dissolution, the incident gives Cagliostro a chance to pay respects to her late sister.

With the alchemist guild's memorial destroyed, Cagliostro returns the land to its natural state as a vast green expanse.
The crew helps Cagliostro set up her sister's grave on an inconspicuous patch of soil.
Vyrn: There, all done... Think your sister's enjoying the view?
Cagliostro: Dunno. I can't read the minds of the dead.
Vyrn: You're stumped on this even though you know the truth of the world?
Cagliostro: Truth isn't exactly all-encompassing, you know. It's going to differ for every—
Cagliostro: Agh, I hate lecturing, so I'll just leave it at that.
Lyria: Cagliostro, I plucked some flowers. Is it okay if I put them on your sister's grave?
Cagliostro: I'm sure she'd like that. That's her favorite color too... Anyway, we should get going soon.
Lyria: Sure. It's a shame we couldn't find any clues about existential dissolution here though.
Cagliostro: Oh, that? Meh, I wasn't expecting much to begin with.
Cagliostro: Just think about it. Personal belongings from thousands of years ago just lying around for us to find? Now that would be weird.
Cagliostro: All things in nature eventually rot away—it's providence.
Vyrn: Hmm, I kinda get it, but I also kinda don't...
Lyria: You weren't expecting much to begin with? But then why...
Lyria: Oh, I know! You just wanted to visit her grave!
Cagliostro: Now that's just absurd! There's no way in hell I'd ever do something so pointless!
Cagliostro: But enough talk. Back to the Grandcypher, guys! Time to look for new leads!
Vyrn: Hey, wait up!
Sheesh, Cagliostro is such a weirdo.
With mixed feelings churning within her, Cagliostro walks away from her sister's grave.
Immortal yet fully aware of the true nature of all things in existence, Cagliostro continues the adventure in search of new lands to discover.
