Sacred Vow

(Captain) and company found themselves in the snowy mountains on a mission to suppress monsters. Her own home being quite snowy itself, Charlotta spoke fondly of days past. As Charlotta spoke of a time before she'd ever picked up a sword, she was interrupted by the echo of a scream. The party flew to its source to offer help.



Monster: Grrr...
Charlotta: Wha?!
Charlotta: Whew... Is that the last of them?
Lyria: Wow, Charlotta... you move like the snow's not even there.
Vyrn: Even (Captain) was having trouble... how d'you do that?
Charlotta: Hehe... It's not a matter of doing anything. I'm just used to it, is all.
(Captain) and company were in the snowy mountains to fulfill a request from the Knickknack Shack.
Vyrn: The village is up ahead, right? That's where the shopkeep asked us to take care of those monsters.
Charlotta: These mountains remind me of home... on some days everything would be absolutely buried in snow.
Lyria: Really?! What kind of place did you come from, Charlotta?
Charlotta: Nowhere special. Just your average country village.
Charlotta: But for most of the year it would snow just like this...
Vyrn: I got'cha! You gotta swing a sword around to keep all the snow off you!
Charlotta: Oh, no... actually, I was still a normal child when I lived there.
Charlotta: Good at detailed crafts and business, just like any other Harvin... I'd not yet even touched a sword.
Lyria: Really?! And yet you managed to become a captain...
Charlotta: Well...
???: Aaaah?!
Lyria: ?! What was that?!
Charlotta: The scream came from over here! We must hurry! (Captain)!

Sacred Vow: Scene 2

The thankful villager guides the party to the village. There they found a group of Lumiel's Holy Knights who had been sent a similar request. The two groups left together to patrol the mountains, but became separated along the way. They were soon confronted by a group of Imperial soldiers. The party was forced to fight.



Villager: Oh, thank you... I thought I was a goner for sure...
Charlotta: I'm glad we made it in time. Has anyone been injured?
Villager: Yes. Excuse me. As I understand it, you were their...
Vyrn: Hey! The village we're looking for is right about...
Villager: I knew it! The village you speak of is our own. Please! Take us there!
Lyria: The village the party had been sent to was populated by Harvin.
Villager: Ashamed as I am to say, we Harvin aren't exactly a fighting sort of folk... which is why we sent out a call for help with those monsters.
Charlotta: My village was much the same!
Charlotta: We found our rescue in a group of Lumiel's Holy Knights...
Charlotta: And in that moment I realized that I, too, wanted to be a protector of the people.
Vyrn: That explains why you were running with the Holy Knights!
Villager: Hm? Would you also happen to be one of Lumiel's Holy Knights?
Lyria: Huh? Also?
Villager: Er...
Villager: There was actually a group of Holy Knights who answered our call. They're in the village now...
Knight 1: Wha... captain Charlotta?!
Charlotta: Er, um... long time no see...
Knight 2: It IS the captain... what are you doing here?!
Knight 1: Hold on... we were dispatched here after we lost you.
Knight 2: Oh... yes, that's right. At any rate, we're glad to see you safe, captain.
Knight 1: If you don't mind my asking... what have you been doing? Why are you here?
Charlotta: Well... I, um...
Looking more than a little embarrassed, Charlotta explains how she came to be here.
Knight 1: So you, er, left... and then you got a request... and now you're in the village...
Knight 2: I didn't know they'd sent out another call for help... this is quite the coincidence...
Charlotta: Hrm? What's wrong? If I've caused you any trouble...
Knight 2: Oh, no! N-not at all! It's nothing, really! We're just so relieved to see you again, captain...
Knight 1: Indeed... you look like you're with a pretty seasoned group...
Vyrn: Hey, now! You should've seen (Captain)'s moves out there!
Knight 1: Well then...
And thus the party joined forces with a team of Lumiel's famous Holy Knights.
The party took up the knight's suggestion to patrol the mountains around the village, but soon...
Vyrn: Something's off... where the hell did they run off to?
Lyria: Looks like we've been separated... do you think they'll be alright?
Charlotta: I don't think they've had much experience in weather like this.
Charlotta: The Holy Knights don't spend much time in the sn... hm?
Imperial Soldier: ...
Vyrn: Wha?! What the hell are Imperials doing here?!
Imperial Soldier: ...
Charlotta: And we appear to be surrounded. I do believe they mean us harm...
Charlotta: We can save the explanations for later... for now, we fight! (Captain)!

Sacred Vow: Scene 3

The Empire had been sent to gather a rare mineral found in the village. They sought to use demons controlled by dark crystals to drive out the villagers and destroy the village. Charlotta was outraged that Holy Knights would be complicit in such deeds. While the knights attempted to absolve themselves by claiming justice without power is no more than a fantasy, Charlotta shot back that true justice is not the right of the strong. The fight began.



After repelling the Imperial troops, (Captain)'s party found themselves wrapped in the eerie silence of the forest.
Lyria: Why would agents of the Empire be here...
Charlotta: I fail to see the reason why you'd... tell me, what do you hope to accomplish?
Vyrn: Let me get this straight... when you disappeared earlier, you'd gone over to the Empire?!
Knight 1: You need not worry yourself over us.
Knight 2: ...
Charlotta: You two! You're safe!
Knight 1: Still the same old captain... would you condescend to battle this foolish knight?
Charlotta: ...? What are you saying...
Dragon: Gwoooaaargh!
Charlotta: Wha?! The monsters approach! (Captain)! Be on your guard!
Charlotta: You two! Unsheathe your swords and be quick about it!
Imperial Soldier: No need to do that. Y'see, they're...
Charlotta: The Empire?! But why?!
Imperial Soldier: You've eyes, don't you? These ones are friends of ours. And these monsters are under our control.
The soldier finished his sentence with the flourish of a sinister looking stone.
Lyria: That... that's a dark crystal!
Imperial Soldier: We have a winner... you wouldn't happen to be looking for these, are you?
Imperial Soldier: Ahaha! How perfect! Two birds with one stone, eh?
Vyrn: Hold on just a second! How about you wipe that stupid smile off your face and tell us what the hell is going on?!
Imperial Soldier: Oh, come on! We planned the whole thing! We found ourselves a tasty little rare mineral here...
Imperial Soldier: We wanted to get rid of the villagers and get to digging. But they're a bunch of stubborn old goats...
Imperial Soldier: Then we thought hey, why not just burn it to the ground? But that might bring some unwanted static down on us from the village's trade partners.
Imperial Soldier: But you get yourself a dark crystal, a few monsters... you know, make it look like the village got hit by them. Piece of cake.
Lyria: But how could you do such a thing...
Charlotta: Why would two proud Holy Knights stand with the Empire? You surely have more sense than that...
Knight 1: ...
Knight 2: You don't understand, captain. They're strong. Unbelievably so...
Imperial Soldier: That's right! They came down to save the village. But then they got a taste of us...
Imperial Soldier: That's all it took to win 'em over to our side! And thus we tied up the last loose end in our glorious plan!
Charlotta: Fools!
Knight 1: Captain Charlotta... why are you so angry with us?
Charlotta: You dare ask me why?!
Charlotta: You had honor! You were the disciples of justice! And now you've thrown it all away to support this evil!
Charlotta: I'll not hear it! You are beyond forgiveness!
Knight 1: Dear captain... this justice you speak of. What if there was an evil that dwarfed it?
Charlotta: What are you... what do you mean?
Knight 1: The only true justice in this world is absolute power... and that justice rests in the mighty hands of the Erstian Empire.
Knight 1: Only the strongest have the right to claim their cause just.
Knight 1: Justice without power is little more than a fantasy... and the justice of the weak is no justice at all, captain.
Vyrn: You low down, dirty... Double-crossing...
Charlotta: Allow me the last word, if you will...
Knight 1: What?
Charlotta: Justice... justice walks hand in hand with the righteous.
Charlotta: Justice answers not the call of those whose only virtue is their strength!
Charlotta: That day in the mountains, when the Holy Knights saved me... I knew that I would one day join them.
Charlotta: I knew that I, too, would be there to protect those who couldn't protect themselves. That day, I knew what justice was!
Charlotta: Justice supports the weak. It gives them the strength to go on...
Charlotta: Forever Pure, Forever Righteous. Words etched in the heart of even the weakest being... that, my friends, is justice.
Charlotta: And you, my former comrades, sold it for power. For that I cannot forgive you!

Sacred Vow: Scene 4

An envoy of the Holy Knights paid visit to the village to receive the knights and apologize for their transgressions. And to extend an invitation for Charlotta to return to the Order. But seeing the grief in the faces of (Captain)'s party at the prospect of her leaving, the envoy accepted her choice to stay. At least until Holy Knights could finally once again lay claim to the words of their Order; Forever Pure, Forever Righteous.



(Captain)'s party had captured the Imperial troops and the soiled knights without incident.
The party transferred custody of the knights to the Lumielian envoy.
Envoy: How am I ever going to apologize to the people of this village... I'm truly sorry for interrupting.
Villager: No... thankfully we managed to avoid any casualties...
Envoy: Thank you for your kind words...
Envoy: And for resolving this... matter. You and these friends of yours.
Vyrn: You were so fired up, Charlotta! I never saw you that mad before!
Charlotta: It's just... all of those memories came flooding back and I just...
Lyria: You were sooo cool though, Charlotta!
Charlotta: Er... I don't know if I would call it cool.
Envoy: Captain Charlotta... you've no idea how much the Order needs you.
Envoy: I've heard of your travels from the other knights...
Envoy: But would you do us the favor of returning to us? I beg you.
Charlotta: I... well...
Envoy: Every citizen of Lumiel, every knight of the Order awaits the day you come back home.
Charlotta: I see... I do wish to see Lumiel again. Truly, I do...
Charlotta: But I... I...
  1. They need you
  2. Stay with us

Choose: They need you
Charlotta: ...!? Oh, (Captain)... If you say so...
Charlotta: Sniff... If you command, (Captain), then I've no choice but to obey...
Charlotta: I-I suppose... snff... I suppose our time together is at an end...
Charlotta: I... I don't know what to... hic... what to say... snff...
Charlotta: I... snff... I'll never, ever... snff... forget you, dear skyfarers!
Lyria: Charlotta...
Vyrn: Hey... you sure about this? (Captain)?
Lyria: Charlotta... why don't you stay with us?
Charlotta: Snff... what was that, Lyria?
Vyrn: Hey! Lyria!
Lyria: But, Vyrn! I was really hoping she would stay...
Lyria: And I'm pretty sure Charlotta wants to, too...
Charlotta: Snff... hic...
Go to "Continue 1"

Choose: Stay with us
Charlotta: Well, when you put it that way... I accept!
Charlotta: (Captain), I can't believe you said... I mean, if you really wish me to stay...
Charlotta: I can't think of a single reason why I wouldn't want to!
Continue 1
Envoy: That's that, then... though I do sincerely wish you'd join our ranks again, Lady Captain...
Envoy: Given due consideration, perhaps the time is not yet ripe...
Charlotta: Wha...
Envoy: For two of our own to stray so far... I cannot tell you how ashamed I feel. We cannot face you with our heads held high quite yet.
Envoy: Forever Pure, Forever Righteous. The Holy Knights of Lumiel must work to reclaim those hallowed words...
Envoy: Would you abide staying with these dear skyfarers until we do? Lady Captain Charlotta?
Charlotta: I would! I will wait in the company of (Captain) and this lovely crew!
Envoy: Hehe... and so, former captain... may we one day meet again.
The envoy withdrew with a gentle smile.
Vyrn: Whew... I thought you were gonna leave us for a minute there, Charlotta...
Lyria: I'm so glad you didn't! I didn't think he would let you...
Charlotta: Hehe... I'll have to give him my thanks once I return to Lumiel.
Lyria: But that won't be for a while, right?
Charlotta: Of course not! For now, consider me a full member of (Captain)'s crew!
Charlotta: And, so... I hope you'll be glad to have me on for a bit longer! (Captain)!
And so (Captain)'s party was entrusted to take care of Charlotta.
Their adventures with her became too numerous to count.
