The Meddlesome Swordsman
Stopping at mountain village for a breather, the crew learns of a terrifying monster living in the nearby ruins. Lucius runs off without hesitation to fight it.
The crew stops at a village deep in the mountains for a brief rest.
The villagers all look depressed.
Vyrn: Hey, mister. Why does everyone look so gloomy? Did something happen?
Villager 1: Sigh... It's because of the monster that took up residence in the ruins nearby. We've lost many friends to it...
Villager 2: Yeah... We tried to get rid of it, but we didn't stand a chance. We really don't know what else to do...
Lyria: That's awful.
Lucius: A monster that threatens the peace of the people is unforgivable. I will exterminate it this instant!
Villager 1: Gasp! Will you really? You look strong... I think you just might pull it off!
Villager 2: Yeah! You got a glint in your eyes! We're counting on you guys!
Lucius: Speak of the devil... Very well, you monster. I'll fight anything with a death wish!
Vyrn: H-hey! Lucius! Don't run off on your own like that!
The Meddlesome Swordsman: Scene 2
On the way to the ruins, Lucius saves a man from a monster. The man, who wants revenge on the monster that killed his wife, rushes ahead into the ruins. Lucius arrives to save him once more from being killed.
Man: I can't believe I'm having so much trouble against these small fry...
Lucius: Hey, you. Are you okay?
Man: Huh? Who are you people? Don't get in my way!
Vyrn: Whoa, calm down there, fella. Why are you doing all this?
Man: That monster took my wife away from me. I have to go to the ruins and get revenge, otherwise she'll never be at peace!
Lucius: Humph. Just leave it to us. The villagers have already asked us to take care of it.
Man: Forget it! I don't need your help! I'll kill that thing with my own two hands!
Lyria: Please wait! It's too dangerous to go on your own! Lucius, please stop him!
Lucius: Let's go after him.
Man: Ugh... This is it for me... I'll be with you soon, honey...
Lucius: It's too early to give up. Weren't you going to avenge your wife? Snap out of it!
Man: Huh? Why are you here?
Lucius: Beats me. Someone's habit of meddling seems to have rubbed off on me. It's time for our counterattack, (Captain)!
The Meddlesome Swordsman: Scene 3
The crew is hailed as heroes by the villagers for defeating the monsters at the ruins. When they mention that they had been saved by a swordsman resembling Lucius in the past, Lucius becomes agitated, and he bolts for the airship.
With the monster defeated, the crew escorts the man back to the village.
Boy: Yay! Dad's back! You got revenge for Mom, right?
Man: Yes, and we have these people to thank for that.
Boy: Thank you, Mister Swordsman!
Lucius: Heh... Your father is a brave man.
Lucius: Listen to your father and rely on each other from now on.
Boy: Yup. I will!
Villager 1: We're saved thanks to you! We won't have to live in fear anymore.
Villager 2: Who would've guessed that another swordsman would come to the aid of this village? It's probably just a coincidence though.
Vyrn: Hm? What's this about another swordsman?
Villager 1: Well, the village had come under danger once before, but we were saved by an extremely skilled, elder swordsman.
Villager 2: We were saying how that swordsman kind of looks like you.
Lucius: What was that man's name?
Villager 2: He left without giving it, but I remember he had a beautiful blade with him.
Lucius: I see...
Lyria: What's the matter, Lucius? You look pale.
Lucius: I'm sorry... I need to return to the airship.
Villager 1: Already? But we're about to hold a banquet—
Lucius: I don't need that! I didn't save this village to be rewarded!
Vyrn: Hold on, Lucius! What's with you all of a sudden?
Lyria: I'm so sorry! Let's do this banquet another time if we ever get the chance!
Lyria: Wait for me! Don't leave me behind!
Lucius's demeanor changes drastically after hearing about the mysterious swordsman, causing him to leave in a huff.
The only thing the crew can do is frantically chase after him.
