Encountering the Eternals III
One day (Captain) and company find Threo shouting at a man who tried to take advantage of her, and they send the scoundrel to the authorities. Threo then asks the crew if they truly intend to awaken the Three-Tiger Axe. When they answer in the affirmative, she mutters some ominous words.
One day (Captain) and company leave the Grandcypher to stock up on supplies from town.
Lyria: Looks like that's everything on the list.
Vyrn: Hey! Let's get some apples on the way back!
Lyria: Vyrn! We can't! Katalina said we need to save as much as we can right now!
???: Hey! You've got some nerve, bub!
Vyrn: Uh-oh, sounds like a scuffle's in the works.
Lyria: It sounds serious... We should go have a look, (Captain)!
Suspicious man: Eeek! F-forgive me! I'm sorry! I apologize!
Threo: Apologize? If you think a sorry's gonna cut it, then... then, uhh... Hmm...
Lyria: E-excuse me, but what happened here?
Threo: Huh? Oh, it's you... Um... the revvin' it weapon guys!
Vyrn: Revenant weapon! It's called a revenant weapon!
Threo: Yeah, yeah, revenant weapon! So? What's up?
Lyria: We were just passing by when we heard shouting... What happened?
Threo: Oh, don't even get me started! This jerk was trying to con me!
Threo tells them that the man tried to dupe her into using her power for his personal gain.
Suspicious man: Blast... I was so sure it would work... What could have given me away?
Threo: You thought you could fool me? You're right!
Suspicious man: Huh?
Threo: I believed you! You totally tricked me! Well, more like I didn't really understand what you were saying!
Threo: But I'm pretty stupid, so I just trusted my guts over my brains!
Suspicious man: What?
Vyrn: Instincts... Smells... She's starting to sound more like a wild animal than a person...
Threo: Oh, and you're gonna pay for tricking me. You're gonna pay big time.
Suspicious man: Eeep!
Lyria: Wha! She looks like she's going to hurt that man!
Lyria: We need to calm her down, (Captain)!
(Captain) and company successfully persuade the enraged Threo to hand the man over to the city guards.
Guardsman: Wow, you guys are amazing. We've been after this slippery con man for ages.
Guardsman: He's swindled a lot of people with his cajolery. How did you catch him out?
Vyrn: Nice job seeing through that guy's sham, Threo! And with nothing but your gut to go on!
Threo: Mmm. Well, there is that, but I couldn't have done it without Anre's advice.
Threo: I may be stupid, but I'm stupidly strong too, so he told me something...
Threo: He said lots of people will try to use me.
Threo: And if I felt someone was suspicious, he said I should crush 'em without a second thought.
Guardsman: I-I see... But if your hunch had been wrong...
Lyria: W-well, let's all just be glad that the bad man was caught!
Though he still seems doubtful, the guardsman salutes the crew and takes the swindler away with him.
Threo: Say! By the way, that weapon you guys have... the revvin' it weapon?
Vyrn: It's a revenant weapon...
Threo: Yeah, that! Looks like it's gotten a heck ton more powerful than before!
Lyria: It sure has! We asked Siero, and she told us it's almost ready to awaken.
Threo: Sweet! And you guys are looking stronger too. Just as I knew you would!
Vyrn: Yeah, took a lot of work, but it looks like it's paying off!
Threo: But... are you guys really going to awaken that weapon?
Lyria: Huh? Well, that's what we're planning to do. Right, (Captain)?
Threo: I see... Oh well...
Threo: And I was really starting to like you guys too...
Lyria: Huh? What's wrong? What do you mean?
Threo: Ah, it's nothing! Don't worry about it!
Threo: Good luck awakening that revvin' it weapon! I'll be rooting for you!
Threo leaves without another word.
The crew catches a glimpse of loneliness in Threo's expression. Unbeknownst to them, they will soon discover the meaning behind Threo's words.
