Die Another Day

After snatching a crate of the food additive MSH from the crew, Predator runs off to take out a group of crooked merchants. When the crew reunites with her later, they come to understand her plight and welcome her into the crew.



At a run-down bar in the suburbs of Agastia...
A masked woman enters a bar and eyes her surroundings.
She lets out a sigh of exasperation as her gaze lands on a particular man.
Masked Woman: Calling me out at a time like this? You never change, do you?
???: Aww, c'mon... Nothing's better than an action-packed mission in the middle of the night. Ain't that right, Ema?
Masked Woman: Tui... I no longer go by that name.
A hearty chuckle escapes Tui's lips as he lays out a wanted poster on the table.
Tui: Let's talk business then. Here's our next target.
Tui explains to the masked woman that the man in the poster has been destroying lives by dealing in the dangerously addictive food additive monosodium heaven—otherwise known as MSH—in the black market.
Tui: Hm... Once we take him out, I assume we'll wipe out any organizations involved next.
Tui: If we do that, it'll be the Acier family that controls the flow of MSH.
Masked Woman: What's the whole point then? We'd only be trading one supplier for another!
Tui: That's right. Try as we might, changing the world is no easy feat.
Masked Woman: Then why even—
Tui: Our actions might not change the world outright, but you'll be one step closer to your goal. This'll be the perfect chance to earn the trust of the Acier family.
Masked Woman: ...
Tui: And until we do earn their trust, we'll just have to sweep our ideals of justice under the rug. Okay?
Masked Woman: Justice, you say... I only care about avenging my father and everyone else who worked in that factory...
Meanwhile (Captain) and crew are in a town helping with a courier job, making their way toward the Grandcypher with crates in hand.
Vyrn: Man, that guy was so pumped about getting this stuff sent! Sure, the island we're taking them to is a bit far, but this is a ton of rupies we're getting!
Rackam: Doesn't matter how far away the island is—anyone who pays us this much is definitely getting their goods delivered.
???: Hey there.
Lyria: Hm? Did someone just—
The merry crew stop in their tracks when a voice calls out from behind.
Masked Woman: ....
Vyrn: Huh? What's a masked lady doing out here?
Masked Woman: Sorry, but is there any chance you can give me those crates?
Rackam: The heck? You pop up out of the blue and expect us to just hand over our possessions?
Masked Woman: Heh, I thought you might say that.
Masked Woman: ...
The masked woman suddenly readies her weapon and charges at (Captain) and company with alarming speed.
Masked Woman: Humph!
Masked Woman: Surprise, surprise. You're not half bad.
The woman shrugs her shoulders at having her attack deflected by (Captain).
Vyrn: Heheh! (Captain)'s not your everyday skyfarer, you know!
Vyrn: Come on, (Captain). Let's take her on!
Huh?
With weapon sheathed, (Captain) smiles at the masked woman.
Vyrn: Wuh?
What's going on here?
Rackam: Heh... Looks like she was only testing us.
Masked Woman: (Taking the cargo by force isn't going to work...)
Masked Woman: What if I told you there's MSH inside those crates?
Vyrn: In these? No way.
Masked Woman: Why not take a look for yourselves?
Rackam: Hm... Will do.
Lyria: But is it really okay for us to just open up these crates without permission?
Rackam: Good point, but there's no way we're transporting these if there's really MSH inside.
Feeling compelled to get to the bottom of the matter, Rackam pries open a crate.
Rackam: Tsk... Looks like she wasn't kidding.
Vyrn: Whoa... I can't believe we came this close to helping the MSH trade.
The masked woman takes advantage of the crew's surprised reaction and snatches the crate in Rackam's hands.
Rackam: What the? Hold it! What do you plan on doing with MSH?
Masked Woman: Ciao.
With no reason to stick around any longer, the masked woman takes off.
Rackam: After her! MSH is dangerous; we can't let someone we don't even know run off with it!
The crew gives chase, but she quickly disappears into the hustle and bustle of the town.
Rackam: Aww crud... We'll never find her now.
Lyria: Huh? That sound...
The distant sound of gunfire still ringing in their ears, (Captain) and company immediately run in the direction it came from.
The crew arrives at a dilapidated old building reeking of recently spilt blood.
What they see upon entering leaves them aghast.
Thug 1: Ngh...
Thug 2: Cripes... Hurts like hell...
Thugs are strewn about the floor, screaming, crying, blood gushing forth—a grisly sight.
Vyrn: Could it be that masked lady back there who did this?
Lyria: Who could she possibly be?
Just as they begin talking about the masked woman...
The sound of an airship engine roaring from outside rattles the building.
Lyria: Yikes!
Rackam: Darn it. They're close! Let's hustle!
By the time the crew gets to the back of the building, the airship is only moments away from liftoff.
Vyrn: Shucks! A few seconds too late...
Lyria: Ah! Look! Over there!
???: Rgh!
(Captain) and crew look up to see the masked woman leaping toward the airship from the roof of the building.
Her body arcs gracefully through the air, and she lands on the deck of the airship as it takes off.
Masked Woman: Whew.
Rackam: Tch! The problem's not just MSH now! Who knows what that girl might do! After 'em!
As the crew make their way toward the Grandcypher...
The airship with the masked woman on deck suddenly explodes, crash-landing in the nearby fields.
Rackam: What the? What's she up to now?
The crew rushes toward the crashed airship and finds the masked woman trying to get away.
Rackam: You!
Masked Woman: I didn't think you'd come this far for me. You must be bored.
A man huffing and moaning crawls out from behind her.
Man: Huff... Huff... You must be from one of the competing families to come and blow up my airship like this.
Lyria: Ah! It's him! He's the one who sent out the request in the first place!
Masked Woman: Tell me where you got the MSH... or die. Take your pick.
Man: Nuh-uh! I've got rules to follow! You'll never get me to talk! Besides... you're the one who's gonna die here!
The man takes out a knife and charges at the masked woman.
Man: Ungh!
She easily evades the attack and slashes the man's throat with her claws.
Masked Woman: (Killing him alone won't change anything. I have to hit them where it hurts.)
Masked Woman: The mafia sells MSH even to children. It's absolutely despicable. Surely you agree.
Rackam: No argument there. Your methods are pretty drastic, but at least what you're doing makes sense.
Rackam: Well then... Care to tell us who you are?
Masked Woman: Does it matter? Not like I care what you guys think of me anyway.
Masked Woman: I'll be leaving this island for my next job. We won't be meeting again.
Lyria: Um... Why is it that you look so lonely?
Vyrn: Huh? What's this all of a sudden, Lyria?
Masked Woman: Me? Lonely?
Oh please.
Lyria: This might come off as strange, but I can't help but care about you.
Lyria: Because I know firsthand what it's like to be all alone.
Masked Woman: ...
Understanding what Lyria is trying to get at, (Captain) gently calls out to the masked woman.
  1. Why don't you join us?
  2. Be true to your feelings.

Choose: Why don't you join us?
Masked Woman: Hm? Well, that'd definitely help me get off the island, but... Wait, you're actually serious?
Vyrn: Oh yeah! (Captain)'s asking politely but really wants you to come with us!
Go to "Continue 1"

Choose: Be true to your feelings.
Masked Woman: You want me to open up to a bunch of total strangers like you guys? Fat chance.
Lyria: Well, we're willing to open up to you first...
Vyrn: Oh yeah! Lyria's as gentle as ever, but she really wants you to come with us!
Vyrn: Besides, you're leaving this place anyway. Might as well hitch a free ride with us off the island.
Continue 1
Lyria: Yeah! So come with us!
Masked Woman: ...
Lyria: Um, can I ask your name, miss?
Predator: You can call me... Predator.
Vyrn: Huh? Say, that doesn't seem like a very... feminine-sounding name.
Predator: It's an alias. I've tossed away my real name.
Rackam: Just one question. What did you do with the MSH you snatched from us?
Predator: I was using that as evidence to try to dig up more info... Didn't go so well though.
Predator: So I chucked it off the crashing airship. Relieved now, old man?
Rackam: Urgh! She called me an old man!
After a playful tease at Rackam, Predator removes her mask.
Predator: I'll take you up on your offer.
Till the next island it is.
And thus Predator's journey with the crew begins.
Though they remain blissfully unaware of the many dangers that await them.
