An Eternal Temptation
Helnar is unable to refuse a request from a woman, and so the crew is on a mission to hunt monsters in a forest. Helnar senses a beautiful woman and runs off while the crew desperately chases after him.
The crew arrives at a dark forest far from civilization.
They've taken a request from a village to dispatch monsters in the forest.
Vyrn: Phew... I think that's the last of 'em. They put up a tough fight.
Rackam: Geez. When you take up all these requests left and right, you set yourself up as an easy mark.
Helnar: You just don't get it, Rackam. When a woman is down on her luck, you mustn't cast her aside.
Katalina: Just let him be. Well, we haven't located their nesting grounds, but defeating this many monsters should be enough.
Vyrn: Hm? What's up?
Helnar: Shh! I sense something...
Katalina: Hm... Perhaps it's the monsters' den?
Helnar: No... I know this feeling all too well. It's a beautiful woman!
Vyrn: You dummy... Huh? Hey! Wait!
Katalina: Goodness, he'll never break out of his habit, will he? We'd better go after him, (Captain).
Rackam: Hmm... We're pretty deep into the forest now. Where's this beautiful woman?
Rackam: Sheesh. Well, I see Helnar. Hey! Let's turn back—
Katalina: A monster? Looks like we missed a few!
Rackam: Come on, (Captain), we'll take care of this!
An Eternal Temptation: Scene 2
(Captain) and company find Helnar standing in front of an Erune grave. He tells the crew about Erune history, but monsters interrupt the conversation.
Rackam: So? Did you get to meet this beautiful woman of yours?
Rackam: What's the matter? Never seen you so focused on something before. Hmm, what's this?
Katalina: It's a tombstone... Why is it all the way out here?
Helnar: It's an Erune graveyard.
Lyria: An Erune like you?
Helnar: Yeah. Way back in the day, Erunes hated interacting with other skydwellers and isolated themselves deep in the forest.
Helnar: This graveyard must have been abandoned when they moved the village.
Vyrn: Hmm... But when I look at you, it's hard to imagine Erunes not liking other people.
Helnar: You think so? Well, a little unpredictability goes a long way with the charm factor.
Katalina: It's not safe for small talk yet! We've got monster incoming!
An Eternal Temptation: Scene 3
An old, abandoned Erune village has been overrun with monsters. The crew prepares to deal with the most powerful monster yet.
Katalina: The monster den must be close. Let's keep searching.
Helnar: Nope, already found it. Right here.
Katalina: Hm? That's...
Helnar: The ruins of an old Erune village. The monsters have claimed it as their own.
Vyrn: No wonder we had trouble finding it. Erunes really hid their villages away from prying eyes.
Rackam: Oho! Looks like the boss has come to welcome us! This village could use a makeover!
An Eternal Temptation: Scene 4
The party clears the village of monsters, allowing Helnar to reflect on his Erune heritage. After turning in the mission to the beautiful requester, Helnar returns to his usual, charming self.
Lyria: Watch out! Helnar, behind you!
Helnar: Whew. Thanks, (Captain). I owe you one.
Rackam: All right, Helnar, what were you going on about earlier? Where's the woman?
Helnar: Beats me. Maybe I was being called by the final wish of an Erune whose slumber was disturbed.
Helnar: Erunes only started mingling with others after a long period of warfare.
Helnar: I'm glad I was born when I was. Otherwise I'd have never met my special dance partner, nor would I have been able to travel with you guys.
Helnar: Okay! Now that we're finished here, we'd better report this to the beautiful woman at the village!
Katalina: I think I understand now. His gung-ho personality is most likely his way of making up for years of Erune isolation.
Vyrn: Nice! He's doing it for his ancestors. Maybe I was being too harsh on him before...
Village Girl: You're amazing, Helnar! You took out the boss all by yourself?
Village Girl: My hero! But wasn't it strong? You're not hurt, are you?
Helnar: Hahaha, don't worry about me! Cuties like you are the source of my strength!
Vyrn: Sigh... Can I take back what I said earlier?
Lyria: Wow, Helnar, you're so popular!
Katalina: Haha! That's Helnar for you—is what I'd say...
Rackam: Oh, brother... I think he'd be like that no matter what time period he was born in.
The Erune swordsman Helnar continues his flirting ways.
Perhaps a day will arrive in which all Erunes shed their solitary past and become more open like Helnar.
