Scenario:Fraux - Reversal
Jump to navigation Jump to search
The party members grow concerned about the seemingly endless nature of the battles only to learn that they unwittingly aided the beast's plan to destroy the world. When the party members announce their fresh intentions to stop the beast, Fraux—who has revealed herself as a pactbearer with the primal beast The Devil—stands before them and emits an intensely intimidating aura.
(Captain) and the crew have lost track of how many battles they've fought within the primal beast's memory.
Vyrn: Hey, Lyria! You okay?
Lyria: I'm fine, Vyrn!
Vyrn: Doesn't look like there are any bad guys nearby, so let's take a break!
Lyria: Sounds good.
Vyrn: I've been wondering, though. How many more times do we have to keep fighting?
Lyria: We've already fought an awful lot, I think.
While Lyria and Vyrn grow concerned, (Captain) pulls out the card.
Lyria: I'm still sensing something unpleasant from that card.
Vyrn: Makes sense. Fraux said the card is infused with the power of a primal beast.
Lyria: Yeah, but it feels like it's getting stronger and stronger. I'm starting to get scared.
The card maintains its eerie silence, which stirs further unease in the chests of the onlookers.
Vyrn: Hey, uh...
Vyrn: Is all this fighting we're doing really going to help stop the primal beast's plans?
Lyria: Fraux said it would, so...
Vyrn: Hm, let's ask her about it when we get back. And about the card, too!
(Captain) begins to put away the card. Suddenly...
???: Listen well, young skydweller...
A strange voice echoes within (Captain)'s head.
Vyrn: Hm? Something wrong, (Captain)?
Vyrn: Oh yeah? You had this weird look on your face a second ago.
Lyria: Everything all right, (Captain)? Feeling a little tired?
Vyrn: A voice? You hear anything, Lyria?
Lyria: Huh? No, I haven't heard anything out of the ordinary.
The voice in (Captain)'s head continues speaking.
???: Don't you wish to know the truth?
???: If so...
Fraux: I can feel power welling up within the card.
Fraux touches the red stone around her neck. It glimmers faintly.
Fraux: Any minute now...
Fraux: Why? Why did my friend leave me?
Woman 1: It must have been something you did. You chased your own friend away!
Woman 2: Maybe you weren't even friends after all!
Fraux: You're wrong! The only one who understood—
Man 1: Anyway, who cares? We're here for you, sweetie!
Man 2: You'll forget about that friend soon enough!
Fraux: Why? Why leave me? Why can't I just...
???: It's not your fault. You did nothing wrong.
Fraux: That's right. I didn't. I mean, I loved everyone. They were precious to me.
???: Yes. You're a kind soul. Whatever horrible things they said, you tried to return them with kindness.
Fraux: But the way things are now... I can't...
???: You don't have to smile. You don't have to pretend. You've been hurt.
Fraux: Then... then what should I...
???: You're strong. Nobody can hurt you any longer.
???: So go ahead. Use your light. Burn everything away.
Fraux looks back on this turning point in her life.
Fraux: It'll be over soon. All of it.
Fraux opens her eyes and smiles.
Fraux: We've got enough data now, thanks to (Captain).
Fraux: All that's left is to revive The Devil. Once I do that, a new world will be created.
Fraux: And this world will end soon thereafter.
Vyrn: What's going on!
(Captain), Lyria, and the rest of the crew are shocked at what they've just heard.
Fraux tilts her head. She doesn't appear to be particularly upset.
Fraux: What are you doing here?
Vyrn: Why do you think we're here?
Fraux: Ah, looks like it's time for the grand finale.
Vyrn: What are you talking about? What finale?
Lyria: Fraux, please! We just want an explanation for what you were talking about earlier!
Fraux: You heard me, didn't you? It's exactly what it sounds like.
Fraux: Your fights in the past haven't slowed the primal beast's plans in the slightest.
Fraux: Just the opposite. They've helped us collect the data we need to create a new world.
Lyria: Then... you deceived us?
Vyrn: We've been helping out with a plan to end the world this whole time?
Fraux: Yep! Gotta hand it to you guys. You really did us a huge favor.
Lyria: Does that mean you're friends with the primal beast that's trying to make a new world?
Fraux: Not quite friends. I formed a pact with the primal beast contained within this card: The Devil.
Vyrn: No way! What've you done!
Lyria: What should we do? At this rate the world's going to be destroyed!
Vyrn: It's too early to give up! Right, (Captain)?
Fraux: What can you possibly do at this point?
Vyrn: Ain't it obvious? We're gonna stop you and the primal beast's plans!
Fraux: I see...
Fraux's expression darkens momentarily, but she quickly returns to her usual smile.
Fraux: It's such a shame to have to say this, but if you're going to get in my way, I have no choice.
Vyrn: What's going on!
A sudden, bloodcurdling aura is loosed upon the crew.
Overwhelmed by Fraux's sheer power, the crew can do nothing but stare in disbelief.
Vyrn: We always knew she had crazy powers hidden away, but this is ridiculous!
Fraux: I've been watching you fight this whole time. You're strong, but I advise you not to underestimate me.
Fraux: My power is... Well, you'll see soon enough.
And with that warning, Fraux flashes an ever-so-beautiful smile.
