Invictus

(Captain) and the others find a man fighting a number of monsters on his own. After rescuing him, they learn that he is the king of the very country they're standing in.



Monster: Grah...
Vyrn: Well, that's a job well done, right?
Lyria: Seems so.
(Captain) and the crew have gotten caught up in an assignment after stopping at an island to restock.
After making short work of the mission, they prepare to head back into town.
Vyrn: Guess we should go back and report—
???: Attack me with everything you've got.
The crew hears the voice of a single man accompanied by a cacophony of monstrous growls.
Vyrn: Whoa, whoa! That voice just now... Is somebody out here bein' attacked?
Lyria: ...!
Lyria: (Captain), we have to help them quickly!
(Captain) gives an affirmative nod and leads the crew in the direction of the voice.
???: No matter your numbers, you are nothing more than rabble.
???: Dare you believe you could defeat me with this display? How you underestimate me.
Monsters: Graaah!
A lone man is cutting through a horde of aggressive monsters with precise swordplay.
But one monster finds an opening in the man's blind spot and moves to attack.
???: ...!
Monster: Grah...
A second later an attack from the side dispatches the monster before it's able to reach the man.
???: What...
Vyrn: Whew, that was too close for comfort, but we made it in time...
Lyria: Yeah... Oh, um, are you okay? Are you hurt?
???: Not even in the slightest. But more importantly, who are you people?
Vyrn: Let's save the chitchat for later! We have to take care of these monsters first!
???: Fine. I will have you address my questions after we've dispatched the monsters.
The man and (Captain) begin methodically trouncing the surrounding monsters.
???: Humph. Finally finished them off. Allow me to thank you for your service.
Vyrn: This guy seems pretty arrogant...
Lyria: Heh... Heh-heh... Um, don't worry about it.
Lyria: We always help people when we see them in need!
(Captain) nods along with Lyria's sentiment.
???: A person in need... Me?
The man stares daggers at (Captain).
???: Hah. So they do exist, people who would deign to describe me as... in need.
???: Forget it. Who are you? And where do you come from?
Vyrn: We're skyfarers.
???: Mmm, skyfarers? And what would skyfarers be doing so far away from the main road?
Lyria: We got an assignment to clear the road of monsters, and so we—
???: Humph. If that is the case, then I extend my thanks once more.
Vyrn: Enough about us. Who are you anyway, pal?
Vyrn: The way you talk makes you seem like some kinda stuck-up big kahuna. Are you like a king from some far off country or somethin'?
Vyrn: Haha. That'd be just silly though.
???: Hah. I'm only like a king, you say?
???: Then it is true you have no idea who I am.
Lyria: Huh? What do you mean?
???: Don't concern yourself with it.
???: Rather, it seems I'm dealing with quite the crew of skyfarers...
The man looks around at the monsters that (Captain) defeated.
Vyrn: You bet! We've been through all kinds of stuff. Nothing we couldn't handle though!
???: I hesitate to agree... But I can tell you aren't simply boasting.
???: Not to mention...
Lyria: Um... What's the matter? Do I have something on my face?
???: No. I feel as though I've seen you somewhere before.
He pauses and examines Lyria.
Vyrn: So anyway, buddy, what were you doin' out here fighting by yourself?
???: The monsters who attacked me. Someone who is after my life released them.
???: Consequently I chose to act as a decoy and took a path away from the road.
???: Had I stayed behind, it would have presented a risk to the locals.
Vyrn: Whew, get a load of that! I guess you're a goody two-shoes after all!
???: Excuse me? A goody two-shoes?
???: Hah. Incredible that someone would call me that.
Vyrn: What's that noise?
Vyrn: Heads up! Look out!
???: ...!
They look up to see the figure of a man staring directly at them.
The figure rares back, gathers his energy, and hurls a ball of magic in their direction.
Lyria: No!
Lyria: Primeval dragon, child of flame and darkness.
Lyria: I summon you, Bahamut!
Proto Bahamut: ...!
Thanks to Lyria's quick reflexes, the spell harmlessly dissipates.
Lyria: Is everyone okay?
Vyrn: Y-yeah... Thanks, Lyria!
Vyrn: But who was that crazy guy...
???: It seems they've already escaped. Do not worry about them.
???: But I have to say, you there. Girl with the blue hair. Are you not the girl who escaped from the empire?
Lyria: H-huh?
???: They say you have the ability to use the power of primal beasts. It seems those rumors are true.
Vyrn: How do you know somethin' like that!
Soldier: Your Majesty! You're safe! Are you injured?
???: Not at all.
Lyria: Your Majesty?
Charioce XVII: I've yet to introduce myself. I am Charioce XVII. The king of this country.
Vyrn: What! You're really a king!
Soldier: Knaves! How dare you speak to His Majesty that way!
Charioce XVII: It's fine. Lower your blade.
Soldier: B-but, Your Majesty...
Charioce XVII: Will you force me to repeat myself?
Soldier: Apologies, sire.
The soldiers lower their swords at Charioce's command.
Charioce XVII: Excuse the rudeness of my troops.
Lyria: It's all right...
Charioce XVII: Well then, skyfarers. Would you come under my employ?
Vyrn: Does that mean you want us to do somethin' for you?
Charioce XVII: Indeed.
Vyrn: What're you thinkin'?
Charioce XVII: I have a goal that I must realize.
Charioce XVII: Lend me your power so that I may achieve it.
Charioce XVII: If you agree to serve me, I will reward you with your heart's desire—and a little something for your help just now.
  1. We'll do it.
  2. Depends on what you want.

Choose: We'll do it.
Vyrn: Hey, you answered really quick! We don't even know what we have to do yet.
Lyria: Charioce has an honest look in his eyes.
Lyria: So it's probably okay.
Vyrn: Sigh... Fine. But we won't do anything that hurts other people.
Charioce XVII: Fear not. I am not inclined to make well-intentioned people such as yourselves harm others.
Charioce XVII: Then let us return to the castle. You will come with us.
Go to "Continue 1"

Choose: Depends on what you want.
Charioce XVII: What I want... I would have you serve as my vanguard.
Vyrn: Well, we won't do anything that hurts other people.
Charioce XVII: Fear not. I am not inclined to make well-intentioned people such as yourselves harm others.
Charioce XVII: Although your position would be within the vanguard, your duties would involve routing monsters and acting as my convoy.
Vyrn: Then that's not a problem.
(Captain) nods in agreement with Vyrn.
Charioce XVII: Then let us return to the castle. You will come with us.
Continue 1
Vyrn: Before we get started, can I ask a question?
Vyrn: What's your angle? What're you after?
Charioce XVII: ...
Vyrn: You okay, buddy?
Charioce XVII: I won't allow another tragedy of that scale.
Charioce XVII: I must guide man to become a strong tribe. A tribe that can withstand assault from anything...
Charioce XVII: That is my mission as a king.
Charioce XVII: And that's what I've been doing these past ten years—wandering and shedding blood to see it come to fruition.
Vyrn: ...
Lyria: ...
(Captain) and the others are overwhelmed by Charioce's words.
Although he seems noble enough, the skyfarers begin to sense the danger this monarch represents.
Royal Guard: Your Majesty, why would you entrust a task to people such as those?
Charioce XVII: ...
Royal Guard: They're too dangerous—the power that blue-haired girl possesses...
Charioce XVII: And that is why she is valuable.
Royal Guard: But—
Charioce XVII: Silence.
Royal Guard: Forgive me, sir.
Charioce XVII: If they present an obstacle to my plans, then all I must do is remove them.
Royal Guard: You are serious, aren't you?
Charioce XVII: And you are brave.
Royal Guard: Then, sire, please allow me to take care of the skyfarers the moment you deem them an obstacle.
Charioce XVII: Do as you like.
Charioce XVII: First we suppress that thing. That is our biggest priority.
Royal Guard: Understood. As you wish, sire.
