Where is He Now?
During a visit to a kingdom famed for the protection it receives from the primal beast Sylph, the crew tours about with Vane, who waxes lyrical about his childhood friend Lancelot. Impressed with his conviction, (Captain) invites him to join the crew.
The crew visits an exceptional country said to be prospering due to the protection of the primal beast Sylph.
The crew has joined up with Vane, a vigorous youth they met in the harbor.
Vane: Heh... Some things never change. It's just like it used to be.
Vane: (If I remember right, the campsite was near that lake.)
Vyrn: Hold up, Vane. What's with that smirk on your face?
Vane: I was just feeling nostalgic 'cause my buddies in the order and I used to train here way back.
Lyria: Um... The Order of the White Dragons, right? Wasn't the captain a close friend of yours?
Vane: Yep! The morning I had to go on my tour of duty, he came to see me off. We walked this path together.
Vane: Captain Lancelot and I have been best buds since we were this small!
Lyria: Wow! It's amazing you're in the same order now! Must be nice having a childhood friend.
Vane: Lancey was no ordinary childhood friend! He could do anything, mental or physical—folks back home called him a prodigy!
Vane: You'd think that he would have been playing with me every day, but somewhere along the line he memorized a huge military tactics manual...
Vane: At one point he even defeated a famous swordsman we decided to train under, forcing him to give up that line of work.
Lyria: Wow! He managed to beat an adult?
Vane: That he did! So I don't want you thinking there was anything ordinary about Lancey!
Vyrn: Hey... We get it already, so try to calm down!
Vane: Whoops, sorry if it was too much... I just can't help boasting when it comes to Lancey!
Lyria: Ha-ha... You really like him, don't you, Vane?
Vane: You can say that again! Lancey is my cherished comrade.
Vyrn: Hehe! (Captain) and I have also been together forever! So I know how you feel!
Vane: Though it'd be difficult for us to always be together like we were as kids...
Lyria: Why do you say that, Vane?
Vane: Huh? It's no big deal really. When I first joined the order, I fought alongside Lancey as an equal, you see.
Vane: But our standings in life recently changed, and there aren't as many opportunities like that these days.
Vane: I've gotta grow so that I can stand eye to eye with Lancey, but I'm not sure how...
Vyrn: I see... You've got your own demons, don't you, Vane...
Vane: Of course I do! I'm as entitled as anyone else to have a few hang-ups, you know!
Vane: But I guess anyone who starts riding around in an airship at as young an age as you guys probably has more experience than me.
Vane: Maybe traveling by airship makes you grow up...
Lyria: Then maybe you should try riding in one. Right, (Captain)?
Choose: Why don’t you try traveling with us?
- Why don’t you try traveling with us?
- Maybe then you can grow?
Vane: You want me to join? I didn't think I'd be invited to join a crew all of a sudden...Choose: Maybe then you can grow?
Vane: Hmm... It's true that at the rate I'm going I'll never be on an equal footing with Lancey...Continue 1
Vane: (Captain)... Meeting you like this might be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Vane: All right... My mind's made up!
Vyrn: Ooh! So what's it gonna be?
Vane: Experience gained from travels could prove useful for the White Dragons, giving me all the more reason to say yes!
Vane: As soon as peace is restored to the kingdom, I'll ask His Highness for permission!
Lyria: Great! We're rooting for you, Vane!
Vane: With that settled, it's time to get back to toppling Fafnir!
Vyrn: Right! Where to next, Vane?
Vane: Um... It's gotta be this way! Follow me!
Thus Vane pledges to join (Captain)'s crew.
Though he continues to take life easy, Vane would nonetheless continue to grow little by little.
The Kind-Hearted Zealot
(Captain)'s party defeats the dragon Fafnir in its den and rescue the primal beast, Sylph. As the party returns to the royal capital, they hear an old woman's scream as she is attacked by a monster and rush to her aid.
The party defeats the dragon Fafnir in its den and rescue the primal beast, Sylph.
As the party made their way back to the capital, they were concerned about the uncharacteristically melancholic Vane.
Vane: Ohhh... It's over...
Vyrn: Hey... what's wrong Vane?
Lyria: Hmm... He's not even walking straight. I wonder if he's sick?
Lancelot: Sheesh... Vane... are you hungry or something?
Vane: That's right, Lacy. You know me so well!
Vyrn: Wha?! You sound like you're gonna die any minute, and you were just hungry?
Vane: Um... I'm sorry to be a bother but... Could I stop by a village and eat something real quick?
Lancelot: Come on... Are you an idiot? We're in middle of escorting Sylph! It's out of the question...
Vane: Come on Lancy... Pleeease... I'm just gonna go and eat real quick!
Lancelot: No! I can't give you special treatment. Rules are rules.
Vane: Psh... You're so stubborn, Lancy... Fine, fine... Just a little longer...
Lyria: Ahaha... You two are such good friends.
Suddenly, the party hears someone screaming.
Old Woman: Aaaaahh?! M-Monster!
Vane: Say what?! Hey (Captain), Lancelot! Let's save that old lady!
Vyrn: H-Hey! Let's follow Vane!
The Kind-Hearted Zealot: Scene 2
(Captain)'s party narrowly saved the old woman from the monster and escort her safely back to the village. According to the villagers, Fafnir has been revived and monsters came down to the village. The party decides to clear the area of monsters so the old woman won't be attacked again.
The party narrowly saves the old woman from the monster.
The old lady tells the party she was on her way back to the village, so they decide to escort her back.
Vane: Here... get on my back.
Old Woman: Young man. Are you sure about that...?
Vane: Come on. On my back you go!
Lyria: Are you okay? You were staggering around earlier...
Lancelot: He's fine. Vane's a grandma's boy to the core.
Vane: But... Anyone would help the elderly in need, right?
Vane: Lancelot... you don't mind if we stop by her village, do you?
Lancelot: We have no choice... Just this once.
Vane: That's the Lancy I know! He always shows kindness in the end.
Old Woman: Thank you. My village is west from here, near the river.
Lancelot: Well... we have no choice. Let's escort her back to the village.
And so, the party takes the woman safely back to her village.
Old Woman: I got back safe thanks to all of you... Thank you.
Villager: Thank you very much. I don't know how we can thank you...
Vane: Luckily, she didn't get hurt. But I don't agree with leaving the elderly to travel around alone like that.
Villager: I'm sorry... This area is usually safe but...
Villager: Well... since Fafnir was revived, monsters started showing up around the village...
Vane: I see... Well we wouldn't want people to get attacked again.
Vane: All right! I'll get rid of all the monsters around the village!
Vyrn: Come on, (Captain)! Let's help out Vane too!
Lancelot: Yes, I'd like to avoid exposing citizens to danger. It'll be a bit of a detour but let's take care of these monsters first!
The Kind-Hearted Zealot: Scene 3
Thanks to Vane, the area around the village was free of monsters once again. The villagers prepare to gather food from throughout the village, but the party declines to take what little they have left. They find out the village's population is dwindling due to a mysterious illness, resulting in a shortage in workers. Vane vows to find the source of the disease and save the village.
Thanks to Vane, the area around the village was free of monsters once again.
Villager: You’ve been a big help. I really... don't know how to thank you enough.
Vane: Don't worry about it, I'm doing this because I want to!
Vane: But... I'm so hungry. . it would be really great if you could spare some food.
Villager: I'm so sorry for not noticing! But this is all we can manage right now...
With that, the villagers begin gathering food from throughout the village to feed the party.
Vane: Wait... it makes me look like the bad guy if you're giving me what little food you have...
Vane: Huh? That's weird... Hm... Huh? I'm feeling full all of a sudden!
Villager: Sigh... I'm sorry we don't have much to offer.
Vyrn: Hey... do you guys really have that little food?
Villager: Well... for some reason our crops suddenly began dying and we've mostly run out of our food supply.
Villager: Because of this, even though we want to do something about it... our population is too low from our people dying off to the disease.
Vane: Is this... the mysterious disease Sophia was talking about?
Lancelot: I see... We'll have to investigate this as soon as we get back to the royal capital...
Vane: Granny! We're gonna help your village so don't worry!
Old Woman: I'm... alright. I believe in Sylph. It'll be alright...
Vane: Granny... praying to Sylph is good but...
Vane: You were light as a feather when I carried you earlier. You need to eat more!
Old Woman: Young man. You talk just like my grandson...
Vane: Huh... you have a grandson...
Villager: No... two years ago her grandson was... taken by monsters...
Old Woman: Oh... young man. If you're ever in the area... I hope you can stop by and say hi.
Vane: ... All right, I will. I'll come see you again.
Lancelot: Vane... it's time to go.
Vane: Alright. Well, I have to go now... Take care of yourself.
Old Woman: Thanks... I look forward to seeing you again...
Vane: Heheh. Take care!
And so... the party leaves the village.
Vane promises himself that he will find out the source of the disease for the villagers, including the old woman he met earlier.
Now, Then, and Always
Revisiting the royal capital Feendrache, Lancelot and Vane overhear two maids talking about them in the castle. This sparks a lively conversation between the pair about their childhood days, where each reveals how much he had respected the other, reinforcing their bonds of friendship.
Paid in foreign money instead of alma, the knights of Feendrache's Order of the White Dragons have taken work in other countries.
Meanwhile, Lancelot and Vane have left (Captain)'s party in order to undertake restoration of their country.
During this time, they now return to the capital for the first time in a while, visiting King Carl.
Vane: Ha ha! It's good to see His Majesty looking so well, eh, Lancey?
Lancelot: Yeah! Let's try not to cause His Majesty any more anxiety!
Vane: Yeah, you betcha!
Lancelot and Vane are strolling around the castle exchanging lighthearted banter, when they overhear some maids talking.
Cheerful Maid: Hey! So is it true Lancelot and Vane are childhood friends?
Quiet Maid: Why… yes, it is. Didn't you know?
Cheerful Maid: Really? I never knew! No wonder they get on so well.
Quiet Maid: Hee hee, those two have excelled from a young age.
Cheerful Maid: Wow… that's so cool… it's like a different world from ours!
Lancelot: Ha ha! Hear that, Vane?
Vane: Ha ha, yeah… those girls might've been surprised to see the younger Lancey, though…
Vane: Heheh… you were quite a mischievous rascal back then, man!
Vane: Oh yeah! Remember that time at the festival, when you saw through that stall owner's bogus lottery game and exposed him?
Vane: And when you played the trick at Halloween and got scolded by that old couple?
Lancelot: Ugh… that was… I mean, come on, I've moved on from then, right?
Vane: Ha ha! Good thing you matured fast, Lancey!
Lancelot: Humph… If you wanna play that game, then… you might be a little taller than me now, but remember how small you were back then?
Lancelot: And what a crybaby you were? I seem to remember you were always saying how scary and painful sword training was, hmm?
Vane: Ha ha ha! Did I say that, now? But, well…
Vane: I'll admit I was always a crybaby back then.
…That's why I looked up to ya so much, Lancey.
Vane: I mean, you've always had this strong and reliable vibe going on. Always admired that.
Vane: It was just awesome when you got that recommendation for knighthood, man.
Lancelot: …You know, at the time I became a knight, I actually thought you were better.
Lancelot: You may have been a crybaby and a weakling, but you used your desire to help others to drive yourself toward becoming a knight.
Lancelot: Hah… After all, you were the one who taught me it wasn't one's skill with the blade alone that gives one strength.
Vane: …Heh heh! Guess I am a little useful, then?
Lancelot: Hey, come on now, you're more than "a little." I'm counting on your help from here on, OK, Vane?
Vane: Yep! Right back at ya, Lancey!
Lancelot and Vane from the Order of the White Dragons reflect on their childhood friendship, which has held fast over time.
And when the next disaster inevitably befalls Feendrache, these two will be sure to work together to overcome it.
