The Cursed Mask
Rosamia is a young knight who is cursed by a mask created by the empire—a mask that forces her to fight against her will. (Captain) extends a hand in friendship against a common enemy.
The crew comes across a knight fighting a one-woman battle against savage monsters.
She fights bravely, but her swings are wild and reckless. (Captain) rushes to her aid without question.
Rosamia: I don't need your help! I mean it! Leave!
Vyrn: Yeah, right! As if we'd leave behind someone in trouble!
Vyrn: We can do it! (Captain)'s got your back!
Rosamia: Tch. Such bravado.
Vyrn: Whew. We somehow took care of those monsters.
Lyria: Oh no! You're hurt! Let me take a look—
Rosamia: Don't come near me!
Rosamia: (What would you people do if you fell prey to this cursed mask?)
Rosamia: On the other hand, would it be so bad to be freed from this curse?
Vyrn: I heard that! I don't know what you're on about, but I don't like it!
Rosamia: No need to worry. I just got my thoughts and words mixed up, that's all.
Vyrn: Thoughts and words mixed up? How does that even... Never mind. Anyway, what's the deal with this mask and curse?
Rosamia: So I can't convince you to drop it? Fine. But I hope you won't come to regret it.
Rosamia: The Erste Empire created this mask. It extinguishes the wearer's sense of self, compelling them to fight beyond their limits.
Even as a child, Rosamia's prodigious skill in battle caught the attention of the empire. She was summoned to take part in a military experiment.
Rosamia was found to be compatible with the mask. Forced to wear the mask, it kept her in a state of a constant need to fight.
But she rejected her fate as a test subject and absconded with the sum of the empire's research. She's been on the run ever since.
Rosamia: By the time my eyes had opened to the empire's trickery, I'd already fallen prey to the mask's curse.
Vyrn: I can't believe they'd stoop to such despicable experiments! Hey, (Captain), why don't you just smash the mask with your sword?
Rosamia: Fool. If only it were that easy—
Rosamia: Wait, is that Thunder Rapier? No, it can't be! Where did you get it?
Lyria: Um... Do you know something about this sword?
Rosamia: My parents entrusted me with that blade on the day I left them. There's no mistaking such fine craftsmanship.
Vyrn: Oh, whoa! So this sword is yours then?
Rosamia: Its beautiful form has been passed down in my household for generations.
Rosamia: It was my parent's farewell gift until the army took it from me. They said I would have no need for sentimentality. I never thought I'd see it again.
Lyria: That's so sad... But why don't you go home, now that you've escaped from the empire?
Rosamia: Don't be foolish. I have no idea when this mask will take over.
Rosamia: How can I return home knowing I might lose myself and turn on my family?
Vyrn: I see. That's why you're out here fighting monsters alone in your darkest hour...
Rosamia: I don't want to hurt anyone close to me. That's why I have to do this alone.
Vyrn: I get that, but if you wanna stick it to the empire, we can help you!
Rosamia: Do you understand what you're proposing? We're talking about the empire here.
Vyrn: Hehe! You heard us! We've been duking it out with the empire since, like, forever!
Vyrn: So what if the mask starts acting up? (Captain) and I'll stop it!
Rosamia: You're quite the meddlesome bunch. You must be fools to stand against the empire with such naivety. Fools of the highest order.
Vyrn: Pft, you need to work on keepin' your inner thoughts to yourself. Oh well, we've been called worse things.
Vyrn: All right! We'll break this curse, you and us together!
Rosamia sets out with her new companions, filled with renewed resolve.
She's ready to face the curse of the mask, hoping to one day see her beloved parents again.
