The Principle of Love

Will awakens in a cave, unable to move his body. Fascinated with the monsters who are about to prey on him, he recollects how he managed to end up at death's door while pursuing a group of bandits.

Will: Uh, ugh... Where... am I?
Will: What the... I... I can't move my body?
Will: It's so cold... but I'm so hot inside... My throat is on fire.
???: Grr...
Will: Who is it?
Monster: Groooar!
Will: ...!
Will: Heh heh... You've taken a big bite of my arm there...
Will: It's... fortunate that I can't feel any pain right now either...
Young Monster: Rawrrr!
Will: The mother is teaching its child... how to hunt its prey?
Will: I see... Their bodies are small, but their fangs are already so mature. This must allow them to become predators early on...
Will: Beautiful... It's simply beautiful!
Monsters: Groooar!
Noticing the change in Will's expression, the monsters instinctively fall back to observe their prey further before proceeding.
As if trying to read his mind, the monsters' gazes never waver from his eyes.
Will: Heh. It's all coming back to me now, I think...
Will: That's right, I was on a mission with everyone else.
Will: So how did I...
Vyrn: Get back here! That money belongs to the villagers!
Bandit Thug: Shut it, lizard! Damn, these punks are tenacious!
Lyria: What should we do, (Captain)? They're running all over the place!
Will: Hmm, quite a pickle indeed. Not only are they fast, they seem to be quite familiar with this land.
Will: But it's only a matter a time—let's say we block off the exit of this cave and take 'em out from there?
Vyrn: Sounds like a plan... Whoa, hold up just a minute! They're coming back at us with monsters now!
Monster: Grrr...
Bandit Thug: Heh, here's a succulent skyfarer crew for
ya—eat up! Come on, we didn't starve ya guys all week for nothin'!
Will: Change of plans. We must punish these sinners, posthaste!
Will: Repent and atone, you bastards!
Vyrn: Whoa, Will's lost it! Here they come, (Captain)!

The Principle of Love: Scene 2

Succumbing to his injuries, Will accepts his fate but is happy to die if it means the monsters he loves so much can live. However, before the monsters can go any further, the bandits find him. Will finds new ambition within himself and takes a stand against the bandits.

Vyrn: Pant... wheeze... H-how's that?
Bandit Thug: I-impossible... How are they so strong?
Lyria: It sure wasn't easy, but we've got them now!
Will: Hmm...
Vyrn: What's up, Will? Is something wrong?
Will: Oh, nothing... Just—take a look at the ground here. Isn't it peculiar? It's so smooth, almost like a man-made path...
Bandit Boss: Hahaha! That's right, ya dumb preacher! This is our emergency hide out that y'all have just set foot in!
Vyrn: No way! Oh, geez... We're surrounded!
Bandit Boss: Heh, nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. Eat bullets, chumps!
Lyria: Vyrn, no!
Will: Not on my watch!
Will: Ah, that's right... I jumped off the cliff.
Will: Heh heh, how foolish of me. How can I even show my face to the crew after such a stunt?
Will: But... I really gotta get going soon. Come on, just start with your pinkie toe...
Will: All righty then...
Will: Arrrgh!
Will: Huff... puff...
Will: Not good... I didn't consider the internal damage. This certainly does not bode well...
Will: It doesn't look like I'll be moving anytime soon...
Monsters: Grrr...
The monsters approach Will once again upon watching him succumb to his injuries.
Their gazes are much different than
earlier—they now see him simply as fallen prey for themselves.
Will: Death, huh?
Will: They're so close... I can hear their hearts beating...
Will: So this is what fear feels like? Which must mean... I'm afraid?
Will: Vyrn... Mr. Prowrs... and (Captain)...
Will: I thought I loved monsters with all of my heart, but it turns out I am afraid in the end...
Young Monster: Groar!
Will: Was my love for monsters not true? Then... what is love?
Will: Sacrificing myself here? Granting their desires here?
Will: Either way, I'm also guilty of killing monsters, myself. Why would I deserve any better than this?
Will: By offering my body to these monsters, I can provide sustenance and life to these monsters... Surely, that is a true love!
Will: Heh heh heh... Splendid! My final thesis!
Will: Yes, indeed! A fitting end for a hypocrite—a monster researcher with the blood of monster on his hands...
Monsters: Grooowr!
Will: ...?
Bandit Boss: Damn, just some monsters... Hey! Someone get a trap set up here!
Bandit Thug: Get lost, monsters! Man, once I get my hands on 'em damn skyfarers...
Will: ...
Bandit Boss: Oho, what's this now? It looks like Mister Preacher here survived!
Bandit Thug: Hahaha, look at him now! Pathetic. Oh, here's an idea! Let's use him as bait—
Bandit Thug: Yarrrgh!
Will: A shame, really...
Bandit Boss: You're kidding! This guy was supposed to be on the brink of death... What kind of monster are you?
Will: Such a shame that I wasn't able to finish my final thesis...
Bandit Boss: Huh? What are you going on about, ya lunatic? Come on, men! Get him!
Will: What love is... and the proof... of my love...
Vyrn: Hey, there he is! Will, are you all right?
Will: Oh? It's Vyrn, and everyone else...
Lyria: Look at Will, he's terribly injured! Come on (Captain), let's go!

The Principle of Love: Scene 3

The crew tends to Will's injuries as he ponders the bonds between people and monsters. In an attempt to cheer him up, Vyrn offers to help him with monster research as a study sample, much to Will's delight.

Despite everything that happened, the crew managed to capture the band of thieves and fulfill their mission.
While attending to Will's injuries, the crew finds rest and shelter at a nearby inn.
Vyrn: Whew... Well, that takes care of first aid for now, but how are you holdin' up?
Will: ...
Lyria: Um... Will? Does it hurt anywhere else?
Will: Hm? Oh, no worries. I'm all patched up, thanks to you.
Vyrn: But seriously, we're glad to see you all right! You really saved us back there!
Will: ...
Will: (Those monsters... I wasn't able to do anything for them...)
Will: (Monsters and humans, those monsters and I... Can such a bond possibly exist?)
Will: (I don't know, but... now...)
Vyrn: Will? Anybody home? Hey, what's the matter?
Will: Sorry about that. What were you saying now?
Vyrn: Come on, I was thankin' ya for saving all of us! I'll even offer to help you with your monster research.
Vyrn: But... Nothing that involves pain, got it? I ain't drinking any weird concoctions you make either!
Will: Really, Vyrn? Do you mean it? A dragon never goes back on their word, you know!
Vyrn: Yikes! Keep it down, will ya? I mean, you should be careful, considering—
Will: Don't you worry your little tail about me! I've been waiting, Vyrn!
Vyrn: Whoa, hey now! Stop chasing me! Uh, I take it back after all!
Will: Hee hee hee! Those adorable eyes, that nose, those fangs... I can't decide—where should my experiments begin?
And such, Will found a new purpose in his research, in the most dire of situations.
As his love for monsters deepened once more, so did the love for his companions on the Grandcypher.
