Cagliostro's Vendetta

Out in town for a little shopping, a strange man appears in front of the crew. Upon discovering that Cagliostro is indeed the founder of alchemy, he summons a group of agents to surround the party.

One day while out shopping, Cagliostro suddenly takes (Captain)'s arm in her own.
Cagliostro: Wooow! Hey, (Captain)! D'you see that shop?
Cagliostro: I'd just love to have a cute doll like that!
Vyrn: What would you want with a doll? Is that sorta thing your hobby?
Cagliostro: Silly lizard... You've no idea, do you? It's not so much the doll that interests me.
Cagliostro: Hehe... It's just that when I ask for something... I'm adorable, right?
Vyrn: ...
Cagliostro: Me with that doll in my arms... Just imagine the picture it would paint...
Cagliostro: I never take a day off from being the cutest Cagliostro possible!
Lyria: I have to say, Cagliostro... You're passionate about the strangest things...
Cagliostro: Hehe. Alchemists just happen to be the passionate type, you know?
Vyrn: I bet you're the only alchemist doting over these dolls...
Cagliostro: Hm?
Vyrn: Eep!
Strange Man: Er, excuse me...
Cagliostro: Yeees? Anything I can help you with?
Cagliostro: Oh, I'm so sorry! If you're going to ask me to be your poster girl, I'm going to have to politely decline...
Cagliostro: You see, I'm already a member of this crew.
Cagliostro: Oh, but... I know how you must feel, wanting me to be your poster girl. I'm just so cute after all...
Strange Man: Ma'am... What would you say if I told you... that you look just like Master Cagliostro, the founder of alchemy?
Cagliostro: Wh-What? You scum. How did you look at this body and figure out who I am?
Strange Man: Well... Seems I was right... Time to put you out of your misery!
Agent: ...
Vyrn: What the heck? How'd we get surrounded all of a sudden?
Cagliostro: It must be all my crazy fans... Yeah, I wish.
Cagliostro: Heck if I know what they want... But they've got another thing coming if they think the cutest girl in the world is gonna stand for this!

Cagliostro's Vendetta: Scene 2

His agents dispatched by (Captain)'s party, the strange man reveals that he, too, is an alchemist. Anxious to bind Cagliostro, the alchemist summons a golem and sends it against the party.

(Captain) and company repel the agents and prepare to face the strange man.
Cagliostro: Would you, perhaps, allow me a question? Who are you exactly?
Strange Man: Surely one of your stature would already know...
Cagliostro: Well. We could stand here and play twenty questions. But don't you think it's a bit rude to not give us your own name?
Strange Man: I see... That is not such an unreasonable request.
Alchemist: I am but a humble member of the Alchemist Guild of Helmuth. Pleased to make your acquaintance.
Cagliostro: Humph... just as I suspected.
Cagliostro: You'd think alchemists would show a bit more respect to the founder of the art, wouldn't you?
Lyria: Cagliostro... do you know this man?
Cagliostro: No, not this numbskull in particular. But it's fair to say that his guild and I share a... common bond.
Alchemist: Yes, bonds and all they entail... We alchemists seek to preserve the dignity of the art and will stop at nothing to do so.
Cagliostro: Hah! And you do that by binding people for hundreds of years? You and your disgusting group haven't changed at all!
Vyrn: Bind? Don't tell me...
Cagliostro: That's right. These arrogant maggots from the Alchemist Guild of Helmuth are the ones who bound me.
Alchemist: I'm truly sorry to do this so soon after you've been freed, but if you would only accept your fate...
Lyria: Wait! Are you planning on binding her again?
Alchemist: You've grown too wild, Cagliostro. We cannot allow your existence to sully our art.
The man stands stolid, every fiber of his body brimming with hostility laid bare.
But Cagliostro pays no heed to the danger. A smile dances upon her lips.
Cagliostro: Hehe... You speak if you actually had any dignity.
Alchemist: Something isn't right...
Cagliostro: What do you expect me to do but laugh? Dignity... for alchemists? What sort of dignity can an alchemist have!
Cagliostro: Alchemists go where their curiosity takes them. Every secret the world holds is ripe for the plucking!
Cagliostro: Even the secrets better left alone... the mysteries better left uncovered. An alchemist brings them into the light...
Cagliostro: There is nothing more alluring than the hidden...
Cagliostro: You've felt it too, haven't you? The sheer excitement of a riddle solved?
Alchemist: If I may say otherwise... That is not what we alchemists do...
Cagliostro: Well, why not try? You're burning with curiosity, aren't you? You wish to know the deeper truths of the world...
Cagliostro: If you knew such, you would never presume to get rid of me.
Cagliostro: What's the matter? Planning to seal me again? What rubbish.
Cagliostro: Come on! Take me out already! Don't tell me you're spooked at the sight of a defenseless little girl!
Alchemist: Urk...
As much as the man grinds his teeth in frustration, he finds himself unable to move.
Cagliostro: Hehe... You can't, can you? You really can't...
Cagliostro: Not much of a surprise there. If I were to die, you scum would have a lot to answer for.
Cagliostro: You crave it with every ounce of your being, don't you—the truth that I alone have attained; the truth that you will never know.
Cagliostro: No need to hide behind that veil of feigned sincerity now that I've laid bare your laughably pathetic plot! Admit it already! Heh heh heh...
Alchemist: Th-that's enough!
Golem: ...!
Vyrn: Whoa! Looks like he summoned something against us!
Cagliostro: Heh heh heh... Some hopeless little brats just never learn.
Cagliostro: I suppose it's up to me as the founder... to show him what real alchemy is all about!

Cagliostro's Vendetta: Scene 3

The crew effortlessly crushes the golem, and the alchemist follows up by summoning Adversa, the greatest weapon of the empire. Cagliostro responds with a bold grin.

Cagliostro: That should do it.
Cagliostro: Now then... Off with you. Shoo. Never show your face around me ever again.
Alchemist: Hehe... I suppose I should apologize...
Alchemist: I should have known better than to underestimate the legendary founder of alchemy.
Cagliostro: Underestimate? What fun would that be... What other toys do you have?
Alchemist: Toys? Indeed... Perhaps I'll be back with a toy great enough to rend this world in two!
Adversa Reborn: ...
Lyria: But that can't be! It's so familiar, but something about it feels off!
Alchemist: Ah... I believe you recognize this?
Alchemist: Yes, you do... This is none other than Adversa, the armored cannon from Albion housing a primal beast!
Alchemist: The Erste Empire gathered up the primal remnants from its ashes.
Alchemist: Our guild received a call from the empire... so we researched... and we developed...
Alchemist: And eventually we managed to mass produce weapons with power rivaling the beasts themselves!
Alchemist: No matter how strong you think yourself, that's only limited to the skies...
Alchemist: But what I've summoned before you using dark essence is the power of the Astrals! You don't stand a chance!
Lyria: It's... strange... like I know it from somewhere...
Vyrn: They're working with the empire... They've gotta be some pretty big players...
Cagliostro: Hmm... I'm gonna tell you an interesting fairy tale.
Alchemist: A fairy tale?
Cagliostro: Once, ages ago, a group of shady visitors came upon me.
Cagliostro: These visitors asked me if I'd like to be even more powerful.
Cagliostro: But this power would come at a cost. The day would come when I would have to follow their orders.
Cagliostro: I declined of course. And they thought they'd be able to force my obedience...
Cagliostro: Which, naturally, brought out my ire. I gave them hell before sending them off... This was almost two millennia ago.
Cagliostro: Do you happen to know what the visitors from that time are called nowadays?
Alchemist: You... you lie...
Cagliostro: Ah, yes... The Astrals!
Cagliostro: Their primal strength was a joke. So what exactly do you plan to do with that sham of a weapon?
Cagliostro: I bet you're feeling a bit of regret. How foolish I was to challenge the invincible goddess Cagliostro. Right?

Cagliostro's Vendetta: Scene 4

By the time (Captain)'s party destroys Adversa, the alchemist has already run away. Cagliostro tells the crew about the sort of foe who'd pose a threat to her, holding on to a faint hope to one day meet such a person.

The party destroys the so-called Adversa Reborn, but by that time the man is already gone.
Cagliostro: Tsk... Ran away, huh.
Vyrn: Hey! So what was that story all about? You met the Astrals?
Cagliostro: I've been around long before the Astrals ever came to the skies.
Cagliostro: When they thought to use this world to create the primal beasts...
Cagliostro: It's no surprise they came after a beautiful genius of an alchemist like me.
Lyria: Um... So that means they tried to turn you into a primal beast...
Vyrn: And... you chased them off by yourself? Seriously?
Cagliostro: Yep... Bunch of fools they were to come after me.
Vyrn: Wait, so you're saying there's no one out there who can beat you?
Cagliostro: Not exactly... Some people just take you by surprise and bind you with clumsy seals, you know?
Cagliostro: Besides, I do have a weakness.
Vyrn: Weakness? Really? You?
Cagliostro: Yeah... There's a reason I'm the strongest after all.
Cagliostro: If those rivaling me in strength are really out there...
Cagliostro: And if they got their hands on a corrupted sort of alchemy geared toward decomposition, toward destruction...
Cagliostro: Well, naturally, they'd be my worst enemy.
Vyrn: You think there's someone like that? That sounds pretty awful...
Cagliostro: Who knows? I'd love to meet them if they're around though!
Cagliostro finishes with a impish grin.
Though such a corrupted existence would pose a natural threat to her genius, Cagliostro hopes that they might one day meet.
