Wielding a Fist of Fury
The crew goes after a group of bandits, the leader of which is rumored to have once fought the Inquisitor Feather is looking for. Feather can't contain his excitement, forcing (Captain) and others to run after him.
The crew heads to the hideout of a group of bandits threatening a nearby town.
Rumor has it that these bandits once fought the Inquisitor Feather is searching for.
This only makes Feather's rage boil over.
Feather: Grrah! Taste my fists!
Vyrn: Haha! You're at the top of your game right now, Feather!
Feather: No... Not yet! I still have to get stronger!
Lyria: Oh, Feather... Hey, (Captain). I've got a bad feeling about this.
The crew chases after the agitated Feather, heading for the bandit hideout.
Wielding a Fist of Fury: Scene 2
Feather charges onward with no concern for his safety, but (Captain) manages to save him from a monster. A swift punch from (Captain) yanks Feather out of his tunnel vision.
Feather: I sense an incredible fighting spirit!
Vyrn: H-hey! Feather? That's not where the hideout is!
Feather: But if I'm going to get stronger, I must fight powerful foes!
Feather balls his fists and runs headlong into the forest.
Lyria: Ah! (Captain)! We have to go after him!
Feather dodges the monster's attack by a hair's breadth, but falls down as a result.
The monster takes this opportunity to unleash a mighty attack in his direction.
Just as it looks like Feather is about to become monster food, (Captain) steps in to save the day.
With momentum on their side, (Captain) and the crew quickly finish off the monster.
Feather: Impressive as always, (Captain)!
Feather: I've still got a long way to go. I have to get stronger!
Feather: Huh? (Captain), are you all right?
Feather: What the? (Captain)?
(Captain) yells at Feather before punching him as hard as they can.
(Captain) makes a fist and strikes Feather squarely in the face.
Lyria: Eek! (Captain)! What are you doing!
Lyria runs to Feather's side. He stands back up, holding his cheek.
Vyrn: Y-you okay, Feather?
Feather: Hahaha. I'm fine!
Feather: I needed that. You woke me up.
Feather: Your fist... your passion... I can feel them both deep down in my soul!
Feather: I want to get stronger. But I think I let my passions burn a little too hot.
Feather: Sorry if I made you guys worry.
Lyria: Sniff... Oh, Feather...
Feather: I won't get any stronger going on like this. I'll hit a wall eventually.
Feather: I thought the only way for me to improve was to match fists with the Inquisitor.
Feather: But I was wrong! I was blinded by my obsession!
Feather: After all... I've got you to guide me, (Captain)!
Feather: If I just take my time and work alongside you... I'll get stronger, slowly but surely!
Feather: Heh. That was a serious punch, though. Now it's my turn, (Captain)! You're gonna understand exactly how I feel!
Feather: Whoops... You're right! Let's do this!
Vyrn: Sigh... He's making me nervous again.
Feather: Heh. You have any idea how long I've been waiting for you to say that?
Vyrn: Hold it! Hold it, hold it, hold it!
Vyrn: We have to take care of those bandits first!
Lyria: Heehee. It's good to see Feather is back to his old self again.
Feather: Sorry for making you worry! I'm fine now!
Feather: Come on, (Captain)! Let's do this!
Wielding a Fist of Fury: Scene 3
Feather discovers that the bandits have laid traps for them, but successfully runs past them and knocks the bandit boss to the ground. Strangely enough, the boss seems to enjoy it, and challenges the crew to a proper bout.
The crew continues on their way, eventually arriving at a vast wilderness.
With no plants blocking the view, the crew easily spots the bandit hideout.
Vyrn: All right! Let's get going!
Feather: Hold on, Vyrn.
Feather: The plain feels too... open. Doesn't seem like there's anyone on watch, either.
Feather: I'm sensing something strange here. Like there's something going on with the ground.
Vyrn: What do you mean?
Feather: I think this whole area might be covered in traps.
Vyrn: Traps? What're we gonna do?
Feather: Haha... There's only one thing we can do!
Feather: We punch through!
Vyrn: Wait a sec! How'd you decide that?
Feather: The bandits must have a safe path to the entrance.
Vyrn: Which means... we just have to find that path?
Feather: It's not that simple. The bandits are gonna go on the offensive if they see us poking around.
Feather: And they're definitely not gonna skimp on the defenses... Which leaves us with one solution.
Feather: We run as fast as we can and get to the other side before the traps have time to activate!
Vyrn: I... I hate to say it, but it sure sounds like the right way to go here.
Lyria: It's a very Feather-like solution!
Vyrn: Yup! Just gonna have to grin and bear it!
Feather: Lyria, you'd better stick with (Captain). It'll be safer that way.
Feather: Heh. With that out of the way... let's go!
At Feather's command, the crew begins running across the landmine-strewn field.
Explosions erupt behind them as they run.
Vyrn holds onto (Captain)'s hair, screaming for dear life.
Vyrn: Gwaaah! Whatever you do, don't look behind you!
Feather: Huff... Pant... It's fine! We've got this!
(Captain) lets out a laugh before picking up the pace.
Thief: Hey, Boss! Come quick!
Leader: Tch... Trespassers, eh? All those explosions were a dead giveaway.
Thief: That's not all! You won't believe this, but they're ignoring the mines and running straight at us!
Leader: The hell you say?
The astonished boss looks out the window and spots the two figures sprinting toward the hideout.
Leader: Impossible! Who are these jokers? Everyone, ready your weapons!
Feather: Just a little more! We can do it! Time to surpass our limits, (Captain)!
Vyrn: I see him! Over there! That has to be the boss!
Feather: Graaaah! This one comes straight from our souls! Eat this!
(Captain) and Feather kick down the door to the hideout and punch the bandit boss clean in the face.
With that much sheer momentum guiding their punches, the boss never stood a chance. He slumps to the ground.
Thief: Neat trick, but now it's our turn! Get 'em!
Leader: Ngh... Wait...
The boss slowly rises from the floor while nursing the bruise on his cheek. He smiles.
Leader: I like the cut of your jib. That punch of yours was so straight... so sincere.
Feather: That's right! Our souls were in that punch! It must've rattled you straight to the core!
Leader: Heheheh, it hit me like a ton of bricks. But there was still something missing. It wasn't enough to make me feel alive.
Leader: So face me, you two! Spin me a yarn with your fists! Drive my very soul into a frenzy!
Feather: Heh... You've got spirit, I'll give you that. Very well. I'll rattle your soul!
Feather: My fists are gonna make you feel alive again!
Wielding a Fist of Fury: Scene 4
The boss is bested by Feather's indomitable spirit, and begins to reminisce about the Inquisitor. Feather consoles him, and the repentant boss swears to disband his gang and start a new life.
Both (Captain) and Feather hit the boss full force with their fists, and he slumps to his knees.
Leader: Heheheh... Hahaha. Now that's what I call a punch. Takes me back to my youth...
Leader: Reminds me of the time I fought this guy who called himself the Inquisitor...
Feather: You really did fight him, then?
Leader: A long time ago. He completely destroyed me. I felt neither good nor evil in his fists. Only the burning desire to grow stronger.
Leader: But I'm an old man now, and my body's not what it used to be.
Feather: I wouldn't say that. Our souls felt the blaze that continues to burn within you.
Feather: You still have some fight in you. I know it.
(Captain) nods in agreement, helping Feather pick the boss up off the ground.
He chuckles softly as he clasps their hands.
Leader: Mwahahaha! You two are really something, aren't you?
The boss promises to break up his gang, enlist in a local militia, and reform his life.
The crew asks for more information on the Inquisitor, but he doesn't seem to know anything useful.
Vyrn: Whew... Glad to see the old man make the decision to disband his crew.
Vyrn: Kind of a bummer that he didn't have any info on the Inquisitor, though.
Feather: No need to rush things. As long as I keep fighting and getting stronger, I'm sure I'll run into him one day.
Feather: Heh. And the one who made me realize that...
Feather: Is you, (Captain). I can't thank you enough.
Feather: Let's do this, (Captain). Let's become better fighters and find the Inquisitor... together!
Feather: Then we'll show him just how powerful we've become!
Freed from uncertainty, Feather smiles peacefully as he holds out his fist.
(Captain) smiles too, and matches fists with Feather.
True to form, Feather's blazing spirit and unwavering faith reach all the way to (Captain)'s soul.
