Wedge that Pierces the World

Jeanne is discussing the veracity of her latest revelation when information concerning the Astrals comes in from an Orleans scout. She heads out to Orleans with the crew to learn more.

Having rested up at the inn for the night, the crew heads to the dining hall for breakfast.
There, they find Jeanne once again with a troubled look on her face.
Jeanne d'Arc: ...
Lyria: Umm, (Captain), Vyrn... Doesn't it look like something's bothering Jeanne?
Vyrn: Yeah, I wonder what happened.
Rosetta: Hey, Jeanne? You seem lost in thought. Is everything okay?
Vyrn: Whoa, c'mon now, Rosetta. Isn't that too direct?
Rosetta: Sometimes it's better to get straight to the heart of the matter.
Jeanne d'Arc: Ah, my apologies. I didn't notice you...
Lyria: No worries, Jeanne. And good morning!
Jeanne d'Arc: Good morning, everyone.
Vyrn: Mornin', Jeanne! So what's the matter?
Jeanne d'Arc: It's nothing for you to worry about...
Rosetta: Now we're really worried!
Rosetta: Is it that you don't trust us?
Jeanne d'Arc: That's not it... Hm, perhaps saying nothing would only be a greater burden to you.
Jeanne d'Arc: To tell the truth, I've been receiving revelations through my dreams again.
Vyrn: Don't tell me! Is that slimy creep trying to make contact with you again?
Jeanne d'Arc: I feared the same at first. But...
Jeanne d'Arc: The revelation this time seemed to come from the great one who previously ordained that I save the world.
Lyria: The great one? You mean the one whose presence is just like Vyrn's?
Jeanne d'Arc: The revelation warned me to watch out for one capable of disrupting fate and causality. One who poses a threat to the world...
Rosetta: Disrupting fate and causality...
Jeanne d'Arc: But as I was thrown off course by a false revelation the other day...
Jeanne d'Arc: It's only natural for me to exercise caution this time.
Lyria: But it might be from the same being that gave you the first revelation!
Jeanne d'Arc: Indeed. That's why I cannot simply ignore it.
Vyrn: Hm, I have a suggestion. So hear me out for a second.
Vyrn: It hasn't even told you where or who exactly the threat to the world might be, right?
Vyrn: Why not take it easy at first? If you come across someone who seems suspicious, then you can decide if there's a threat.
Vyrn: Overthinking it like you usually do probably wouldn't be much help.
Jeanne d'Arc: That's true. It's not like I have a lead after all...
(Captain) and Vyrn give Jeanne an understanding nod as they feast on breakfast.
That afternoon a messenger from Orleans awaits (Captain) and company when they return to the Grandcypher.
Lyria: Did something happen in your hometown, Jeanne?
Jeanne d'Arc: Well, not quite.
Jeanne d'Arc: Do you remember the sort of town Orleans is?
Rosetta: Well, you did mention that the town is preparing for the day when the Astrals attack again.
Jeanne d'Arc: Indeed. Orleans deploys scouts to travel the land and watch for possible signs of another invasion by the Astrals.
Jeanne d'Arc: A scout found something of concern the other day. And now Orleans wishes to hear my opinion.
Vyrn: Wow, so they really depend on you there!
Jeanne d'Arc: No, I still have much to learn. Let's not forget the incident in the village the other day...
Jeanne d'Arc: But that's not what I'm trying to say here.
Jeanne d'Arc: If Orleans needs my help, then I must return.
Jeanne d'Arc: Oh? You will come with me to Orleans, (Captain)? But I do not wish to trouble—
Lyria: It's no trouble at all! We're friends, right?
Lyria: Besides we don't want to see a repeat of what happened at the village the other day...
Jeanne d'Arc: Lyria...
Jeanne d'Arc: (Captain), I thank you for your help. Let us make way for Orleans!
The crew steers the Grandcypher toward Orleans.

Wedge that Pierces the World: Scene 2

Ever since the appearance of a mysterious primal beast in a shrine said to be created by the Astrals, unfathomable phenomena such as dogs rising from their graves have been occurring. (Captain) and company set a course for the island housing this shrine to investigate further.

The crew safely arrives in Orleans and heads toward the barracks where the scouts wait.
Jeanne d'Arc: Thank you for your work. What is it that you found?
Scout: I was able to confirm the existence of a primal beast with special powers residing on a particular island.
Scout: The primal beast inhabits a shrine said to be created by the Astrals. And the island itself has deep ties to the Astrals.
Jeanne d'Arc: Can you tell me more about those special powers?
Scout: The island's residents claim that impossible phenomena are occurring.
Lyria: Impossible phenomena?
Scout: For example, you try to pour tea into a cup, only to suddenly find that the cup is already full.
Scout: To give another example, imagine a pet dog rising from its grave. To put it simply, logic does not apply.
Vyrn: The tea example could just be a simple misunderstanding. But a pet dog coming back to life—now that's something.
Scout: Yes. Such occurrences do not happen often, but they've cropped up since ages past.
Scout: And the frequency of such phenomena has been on the rise lately.
Rosetta: ...
Scout: Although the primal beast sleeps in the shrine near the village, I believe its power may be leaking and thereby causing such events to happen.
Jeanne d'Arc: I see... The increased frequency is indeed cause for concern.
Jeanne d'Arc: Very well. I shall pay the shrine a visit.
Lyria: We'll help! Right, (Captain)?
Jeanne d'Arc: Thank you, (Captain). I am in your debt.
Vyrn: Well, let's get going then!
(Captain) and crew land the Grandcypher close to the shrine.
Jeanne d'Arc: Many monsters reside in the forest. Let us proceed with caution.
The crew follows behind Jeanne along a trail leading to the shrine.

Wedge that Pierces the World: Scene 3

Jeanne realizes that this primal beast possessing the power to disrupt fate and causality may very well be the one mentioned in her revelation. When Lyria suffers merely by being in its presence, revelation no longer matters—Jeanne boldly confronts the primal beast purely to save her friends.

The crew arrives at the ruins of the shrine deep in the forest.
Jeanne d'Arc: So it can alter fate...
Vyrn: Hm, did you say something, Jeanne?
Jeanne d'Arc: I was thinking about the primal beast's power as described by the scout.
Jeanne d'Arc: The cup's already full when you try to pour tea... A dead dog comes back to life...
Jeanne d'Arc: Depending on how you look at it, you could say that cause and effect are being reversed.
Vyrn: Now that you mention it...
Jeanne d'Arc: Fates being reversed... In other words, one capable of disrupting fate and causality. One who poses a threat to the world...
Lyria: That matches up with your revelation!
Jeanne d'Arc: Indeed it does, Lyria. The primal beast in this shrine may very well be the threat spoken of in my revelation.
Jeanne d'Arc: But even if that were so, I'm at a loss as to what to do. Can I really trust the revelation?
Rosetta: If you're so worried, why not just let sleeping dogs lie?
Rosetta: From what we've heard so far, it doesn't seem like a reversal of fate is necessarily such a bad thing.
Rosetta: It's possible we'd only be inviting trouble by poking our noses into the matter.
Jeanne d'Arc: Indeed. You make a good point, Rosetta.
Jeanne d'Arc: (Am I... putting too much faith in the revelation again?)
Deep in thought over Rosetta's advice, Jeanne stops in her tracks.
The crew follows her lead.
Lyria: ...!
Vyrn: Lyria! What's wrong?
Lyria: I sense something from deep inside the shrine...
Lyria: It hurts.... Is this really a primal beast?
(Captain) supports a heavily breathing Lyria.
Jeanne d'Arc: ...!
I can feel it... It's coming!
???: ...
Jeanne d'Arc: Is this the primal beast from the scout's report?
???: ...
Lyria: Ngh.... Agh...
Rosetta: Lyria, pull yourself together!
Jeanne d'Arc: What exactly are you! Why do my friends suffer in your presence?
???: ...
Jeanne d'Arc: You disturb fate and causality and threaten the peace of the world! Do you deny it? Answer me!
???: ...!
Lyria: Ugh... Its power is too much...
Jeanne d'Arc: Lyria!
You monster! What quarrel do you have with my friends!
Jeanne d'Arc: It matters not whether you will one day become an enemy of the world!
Jeanne d'Arc: All who threaten my friends will fall to my blade! Here we go, (Captain)!
(Captain) and Jeanne stand side by side, ready to battle the primal beast capable of altering fates.

Wedge that Pierces the World: Scene 4

The crew is delighted to see Jeanne wake up after an unconscious spell following a hard-fought victory against the primal beast. Jeanne is relieved to know that the primal beast will lay dormant for some time, but also realizes she must be ready to confront any other threats to world peace.

Jeanne d'Arc: Aargh!
???: ...!
Jeanne's devastating attack pierces through the primal beast's body.
Jeanne d'Arc: Did I do it?
???: ...!
Unfortunately Jeanne takes the brunt of the primal beast's final blow.
Jeanne d'Arc: Ngh...
Vyrn: Jeanne!
Jeanne d'Arc: Agh... I...
???: ...
Jeanne d'Arc: ...!
I know this presence! You're from my revelations!
???: An impressive triumph over the force that would bring the world to ruin.
???: Your actions have paved the path to a brighter future.
Jeanne d'Arc: You think so? I'll continue to fight to protect the people of the world.
Vyrn: Jeanne! Jeanne, pull yourself together! Hey!
Lyria: Jeanne, please open your eyes!
Jeanne d'Arc: Ugh...
Jeanne d'Arc: Vyrn, Lyria, (Captain)... And Rosetta too...
Vyrn: You took it too far back there! The primal beast attacked you head on, you know!
Jeanne d'Arc: Is that... so?
Vyrn: Do you know how worried we were? Sob...
Jeanne d'Arc: V-Vyrn?
Rosetta: We were worried sick, if you can believe it. We're just you're glad okay though.
Jeanne d'Arc: My apologies. What happened to the primal beast?
Rosetta: Relax. That primal beast won't be causing trouble anytime soon.
Rosetta: You're just amazing, Jeanne.
Jeanne shakes her head with a smile.
Jeanne d'Arc: You speak too highly of me. There is still much for me to learn.
Jeanne d'Arc: After all, that primal beast is likely only one of many threats to the world.
Jeanne d'Arc: Anyway...
Jeanne d'Arc: I could use a long nap right about now.
Lyria: Yikes! Jeanne!
(Captain) holds Jeanne up to prevent her from collapsing.
As the Maid of Orleans herself suggests, Jeanne's battle to fight for the people shall continue.
But with one major threat gone, she's no doubt earned a well-deserved rest.
