An arcane duelist with sealed magical powers, Zehek was tainted by an ancient sickness from a primal beast during his youth. The sickness has rendered him incapable of controlling the magical energies flowing within him, instead barely taming his power by covering himself in countless sheets of inlaid rune cloths. While he is capable of overwhelming foes with his latent powers, the sickness continues to consume his body, forcing you to save him from collapse on more than one occasion. He continues to search for the means to overcome his sickness.

  • Zehek's master is Mishra. He respects and admires his master, but also displays great fear even at the thought of facing her.

Happy Birthday Cutscenes
# Link Text

Happy birthday.
Nothing matters more than staying healthy. You would do well to remember that.
Take it easy when you can.


Happy birthday. It's always a pleasure to spend time with you.
I appreciate how you always help me forget about my illness.
With all that you've done for me, I think it's time I did something in return. I've prepared a song for you!
Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday, dear—
Cough! Cough! Urk! C-cough! Huff... Wheeze... Phew... It hurts...
Sigh... Oh, sorry about that. That was just a little cough, not my magic overflowing.
Sorry to kill the mood... Let me give it another shot!


I noticed others congratulating you earlier today. You're probably tired of hearing it by now, but...
Happy birthday, (Captain). You've got another year of experience under your belt.
Hm? You're happy to hear happy birthday even if it's the umpteenth time?
You know, my master used to tell me that our lives hold meaning even if we do nothing but exist.
No matter how tough the going gets, our continued existence is always a miracle and brings happiness to those around us.
Ever since meeting you, I feel like I've come to understand my master's words, (Captain). Because I can't help but want to tell you...
Happy, happy, happy birthday!
I can feel the joy pulsating from the bottom of my heart. It would be no exaggeration to say I've lived my life to see this very day.
Perhaps that, in itself, is an exaggeration, but I ask that you trust in the sincerity of my words.
I pray that we will both continue to live on for many more decades to come, and that you'll let me celebrate your birthday on every occasion.


Ah... Happy birthday, (Captain). The fates have been merciful to let me celebrate with you once more.
But (Captain)... Your face doesn't look so good. Did you catch a cold or something by chance?
No matter how trifling the symptoms may seem, you must take care of yourself when indisposed. Let's get you to bed.
I've brought you some medicine. I'll leave it right here, okay?
Don't worry about me. I'm actually feeling quite well today for a change, so let me take care of you for once.
When you're under the weather, even the most trivial tasks can become quite arduous.
You must think it strange to hear this from me, but a healthy body is key to everything. I just don't want you pushing yourself too hard.
For a cold, Master's signature medicated porridge should do the trick. Hold on, I'll fix you a bowl myself.

Happy New Year Cutscenes
# Link Text

Happy New Year. This is surely the year I cure myself from this sickness.
Cough... Ungh... Haa... Haa... You'd best make sure you don't catch a cold either.


Urgh... C-cough! Agh... Huff... Happy... New... Hack!
Urghh! Ugh! Cough! Wheeze... Cough... Huff...
Haah... Sorry about that... My magi— Uurgh... I... won't let it take over! Huff... Wheeze...
Wheeze... Whew... Hahaha... Umm... I... Sorry you have to see me like this...
Sigh... What a way to start the year, huh?


(Captain)... Urgh, ack... Huff... Huff... Happy... Ngh... New Year...
Rgh... Aaarrggghhh! Sorry... My magic... Yaaargh... Pant... Wheeze...
Okay, I've calmed down a bit... How odd that I didn't feel anything at all this morning.
Huh? Oh, I got this little slip of paper detailing my fortune at the shrine.
It says that my ailment will be cured eventua—Rgh... Maybe just not so soon...
I don't truly believe a slip of paper to have any magical power, but I do find comfort in the message.
But enough of that... Huh? You want me to read more of the message, (Captain)?
"Save others to save yourself." Hm, I see...
Rgh... Aack... Graagh! Huff... Puff... So that's what I must do, eh?
Ungh! Yaargh! Huff, huff... I'll see to it...


Happy New Year, (Captain).
It's important that I start the year off with a proper New Year's greeting—which starts with proper sitting posture.
Anyhow, my body feels quite sound today... Perhaps an omen that this year will be the year I overcome this curse?
Heh... I don't know how this year's gonna turn out for me, but let's make it a good one, (Captain).
I thought I might go to a shrine later today and...
Ngh... Guh, graaaurgh!
Sorry... My legs went numb after sitting like this for so long. Could... could you wait until I can move again?

Valentine's Day Cutscenes
# Link Text

So today's Valentine's Day, huh?
You know, my master would give me chocolate on this day every year.
There'd always be weird medicinal herbs mixed in.
Sigh... How nice it would be to get normal chocolate for once.


What's this? Wh-wh-what? You're giving this to me?
N'ghaaa! Unghh! Aaah!
Huff... Puff... Wheeze... Oh, sorry about that. Some of my magic leaked from all that excitement.
I didn't think I'd be getting something from you for Valentine's...
A bother? No, no, of course not! I swear it! I couldn't be more happy!


What's that? You have chocolate for me this year as well?
Your boundless kindness saves me every time. Thank you, (Captain).
Hm? Where do you see half-eaten chocolate? Oh, no, no, this is actually medicine!
The excitement of it all last year led to a panic attack. To avoid repeating that same mistake, I asked my master for candies filled with medicine.
And she went all-out to make me something of exceptional flavor—Actually, no, never mind I said any of that!
But here I am accepting your gift with such calmness... The remedy seems effective enough.
Wh-what? You want to hand-feed me to reward my efforts? Urgh... Grraagh!
Urgh... Grraagh!
Huff... Wheeze... Sorry... That was... quite the shocker for me.
Ah, I certainly did not find it loathsome! I was merely... blushing at your smile, (Captain).


Oh... Chocolates... Thank you for... remembering...
Rgh... Gyaaahhh!
S-sorry, I—ugh! Gyurgh...
Don't worry, I can... hold it baggghhh! Gyaaahhh!
Huff... Huff...
It's been especially bad today. Hnggh... I'm going to go sleep it off...
Sorry, (Captain). You didn't have to see me back to my quarters... I'm feeling a lot better...
Thank you for the chocolates, (Captain). I wish I could have accepted them more gracefully.
Ugh... I don't think I'm feeling strong enough to eat them myself. Perhaps you could help me?
No, never mind. Perhaps I'd better leave them for later.
Please don't take it the wrong way—I'm extremely happy about your gift. I'd be dancing for joy if I were able.
But eating them in my current condition would only cause a nuisance for you.
So I'll say "ahh" when circumstances are a bit more favorable. Will you wait for me?

White Day Cutscenes
# Link Text

Oh yeah, today's White Day, huh?
Hmm? You want to know if I'll give my Master something back for White Day?
But of course. To be fair though, what she gave me wasn't exactly chocolate... Still, I make sure to repay all my debts.


(Captain), this is for you.
I realize my illness is quite the burden on the crew.
But I refuse to just blame everything on this condition and give up everything.
I've always found you to be a whimsical one, giving quarter to someone like me.
But after seeing you share our pain whenever you can, I see how truly kind you are.
Someone as kind as you is rare.
I hope our relationship lasts for a long time to come.
Our journey's going to continue for a while. Here's a little something to show you my gratitude for everything you do for us.


(Captain)... Cough, cough... Sorry for making you worry. My fits have calmed down a bit lately.
You brought me some medicine? Oh, you're too kind. Can you put them on the table?
I'm grateful for this, (Captain). It was tough yesterday with no one around.
Hey, can you grab me the box from inside that top drawer?
Y-yes... That's it. Rgh... I'm okay. I can at least get up by myself.
Sorry that I have to do it from this position, but this is in return for the Valentine's chocolates. Won't you have them?
It's a good thing I bought them in advance. I can't imagine how ashamed I'd be if I didn't have them ready for today.
You stuck with me all throughout yesterday when the fever consumed me. I was barely conscious, but I remember much of it.
To hear you tell me that everything would be okay was a tremendous relief. While I'm used to the fits, I can always do with less pain.
Thank you, (Captain)... And sorry for causing you trouble all the time... I hope to repay you for this all one day...


Uh, (Captain)... Here. This candy is for you.
Even in my illness, you didn't abandon me. Every day I'm grateful for your kindness.
I tried to express my feelings through this gift. Here, you deserve it.
I didn't feel like simply handing it over was sufficient, so...
If you feel like it... Maybe I could feed it to you...
Grgh... Gyaaahhh! Cough... Hack... Agh! Hngh! Gyah!
I'm not ready for anyone to "say ahh"! Just imagining it sent me into a fit...
Uh, I mean... Nothing! Just pretend you didn't hear anything...
Wait! Stop! Don't open your mouth like that!

Trick or Treat Cutscenes

Trick or treat!
I’ve always gotten a lot of candy on Halloween…
What? No, these bandages are not part of a costume!


Costumes are getting fancy these days. It's hard to tell some of them apart from the real thing.
One day I'd like to try on a costume like that...
Hm? What do you mean I already fit in with the trick-or-treaters!
Sorry, but these bandages are clothing, not a disguise! Master gave them to me! They're embroidered with runes!


Oddly-dressed children cheered and clapped at me on the streets earlier.
The adults accompanying them complimented me on my attire... even went as far as to give me candy.
But all I'm doing is living my life and minding my own business as usual.
(Captain), what's with that getup anyway?
What! Today's Halloween?
Oh, I get it now... The townspeople must take my bandages to be part of some Halloween costume!
But this is no costume, I tell you! These rune-embedded bandages keep my magic, and therefore my life, in check.
Tell me, (Captain), do I truly blend into the Halloween atmosphere that well?


Happy Halloween... Have you noticed all the people in costume lately?
Actually, the kids in town wouldn't stop pestering me about my bandages earlier.
They... They thought I was in costume this year again...
Anyhow, they invited me to their band of bandaged trick-or-treaters. I must admit... I did enjoy collecting candy from the grown-ups with them.
To think these cursed bandages would actually bring me an auspicious opportunity...
Huh? You wish to try some on too? Heh... You are quite the peculiar one, (Captain).
Very well... Once we get you properly garbed, I'll introduce you to the rest of the gang too!

Happy Holidays Cutscenes
# Link Text

Happy holidays. I tend to fall ill a lot during this season.
You know those people who get sick on important days? That's me.
But Santa comes to see me anyway...


What a beautiful night it is, (Captain). Thankfully, I'm not feeling so bad today.
In fact I'm feeling really good for once. The magic within my body is rarely this calm.
I guess miracles really do happen. I couldn't have asked for a better gift.
I rarely get the chance to move freely, so let me take this opportunity to do something for you.
Tell me what I can do for you, (Captain). I want you to feel the miracle too.


The holidays are here, (Captain).
I know I've fallen sick and caused you trouble numerous times, but I'm feeling exceptionally well today.
Call it a holiday miracle. How nice it'd be if the miracle would persist long term.
I prefer to be of aid to others when I'm feeling up to it—especially for special occasions like this.
That's why I went ahead and decorated this tree. What do you think?
Too many accessories, huh? I guess trying too hard can have the opposite effect.
I'm never good with these things, (Captain). Can you offer me some advice?
I see... Thank you. I'm so glad to be able to just blend in together with everyone.


H... H-happy holidays, (Captain)...
Heh... Ahaha... Sorry, I'm a little more under the weather than usual, actually...
I stayed up all night hoping to catch a glimpse of Santa... So I've been wandering around all morning in a stupor.
Ah, this has nothing to do with my magical blight. Sorry... I didn't mean to worry you like that.
Did I meet Santa? Well about that, actually...
I must have dozed off at some point, because when I came to, a present was waiting right before my eyes.
Ngh... I was so close to seeing him for myself, too!
Next year I'll definitely stay awake and thank him properly! Say, (Captain)... Will you be there to make sure I don't fall asleep?

Sick Soldier[edit]

The crew encounters a young man fending for himself alone against a horde of monsters and saves him just in time. Upon discovering that (Captain) wields Mandau the Demonsealer, he asks to join the crew.

Vyrn: Keep your guard up, (Captain)! Monsters could show up at any second...
Monster: Grooooar!
Vyrn: Whoa, over there! Monsters... Hey, wait! Look, (Captain)!
Vyrn: Hey! You there! Hmm... why's that guy fighting those monsters by himself?
Vyrn: Uh, hey! You all right there? That guy... He's gonna get himself killed! We gotta do something!
The man known as Zehek had taken on the monsters alone. Only thanks to (Captain)'s help was he able to survive.
After being saved by (Captain) and company, he decides to share the story of his life—a life cursed from birth.
He was born with an illness that made him a spring of magical power, drawing monsters from near and far in search of such a power.
Vyrn: Gotcha... So that's why you were fighting them...
Zehek: Indeed—cough—they just come out in torrents. It seems to have no end...
Zehek: Cough... Wheeze... I can't stop it no matter how hard I try...
Zehek: I couldn't—cough—I couldn't endanger the people a-around me. So I set out alone—ahem!
Vyrn: You all right there? You sound like you're at death's door!
Zehek: Well... I've been fighting for... around 100 days now... Wheeze...
Vyrn: Say what! You've been fighting for 100 days? That's crazy...
Zehek: I'm truly thankful... for your...
Vyrn: Eep! D-did he just die? What are we gonna do, (Captain)!
Zehek: But you know... Since you showed up the monsters have stopped coming. Why?
Vyrn: Whoa! You're still with us!
Zehek: Gasp! That sword you wield... Mandau? Is that Mandau the Demonsealer?
Vyrn: What? You know about this sword?
Vyrn: That's, uh, quite the name. I don't think we've seen it do much demon sealing...
Zehek: P-please bring it closer...
Zehek: Yes... This rune right here—it's the very same one they put on me! I... I feel it...
Zehek: I feel it! Mandau and I... We... Ugh...
The ancient malady awakens the latent sealing power within the Mandau. For the time being, Zehek is safe.
Zehek: Those outfits... You must be skyfarers.
Vyrn: Yup! And (Captain) here's our captain!
Zehek: I knew it... It must have been fate that placed that blade into your hands.
Zehek: Your strength is true... Please let me ask you this!
Zehek: Please allow me to join your crew! I won't cause any trouble. So long as you have the blade...
  1. We'll find a way to manage your sickness.
  2. We can't just leave you here. You're sick!

Choose: We'll find a way to manage your sickness.
Vyrn: Put 'er there, pal! You're gonna be better in no time!

Choose: We can't just leave you here. You're sick!
Vyrn: Yeah, no kidding! There's no way we're gonna leave you out here lookin' like this!
Continue 1
Zehek: M-much appreciated! I'll surely find a cure along... the...
Vyrn: Yikes! He just fainted again! Hey! Get a hold of yourself, man!
After years of suffering, Zehek has finally found a moment of respite.
However, the sickness still ails him—his quest for the cure has only just begun.

Runeblade Gloom[edit]

Zehek lives in pain each day with an ancient illness. In order to relieve some of his pain, (Captain) and the crew head to an archipelago in search of a certain herb.

Zehek: Wheeze... Huff... Ugh...
Lyria: Um, Zehek... Are you okay? You haven't been looking well recently.
Zehek: Y-yes... This is nothing... This suffering is my fate.
Lyria: Oh... But isn't there some way we can help you with your pain?
Vyrn: Yeah! Isn't there medicine for it or something?
Zehek: Urk... The root of my malady is one of a magical element...
Zehek: Only my master would be able to do anything for me...
Vyrn: Wait, what? You have a master? Where is he? We should go—
Zehek: W-wait, wait! Stop, please! D-don't mention my master... Blargh!
Lyria: Ack! Zehek!
Zehek: I'm fine! I've endured this many times before!
Zehek: A-anyway, just don't look for my master. Nothing good will ever come of it.
Vyrn: Is that so? But if we don't...
Zehek: I thought a situation like this would come one day after leaving my master.
Zehek: There should be an archipelago inhabited by monsters where a pain-relieving herb is known to grow.
Lyria: If we can find something for your pain there, that's where we need to go!
Vyrn: All right! Strike while the iron's hot, they say! Let's go! (Captain)!

Runeblade Gloom: Scene 2[edit]

The crew wanders in search of the medicinal herb but encounter imperial soldiers with the same objective. Zehek takes responsibility of the situation and stands up to the soldiers.

Vyrn: Yeah... There's definitely an ominous vibe here... Certainly a place where magical herbs could grow at least.
Zehek: No... I'm sensing something else.
Imperial Soldier: Hey, you! State your business!
Vyrn: Uh-oh! The empire? What are they doing here?
Imperial Soldier: Don't tell me... You're looking for the rare herb that grows in these parts?
Imperial Soldier: Heh-heh... That's a shame. This area is under our jurisdiction now—all the precious herbs here are property of the empire!
Vyrn: Aw, geez... I didn't think we'd run into the empire here of all places.
Zehek: Ugh... I'm sorry. This is all because I wanted to escape this pain.
Zehek: Even if it costs me my life, I will protect you all!
Zehek: Just watch, (Captain)... This is how a man takes control of his fate!

Runeblade Gloom: Scene 3[edit]

Shortly after defeating the imperial soldiers, Zehek reaches his limit and passes out. Upon taking him to see a doctor, the crew is relieved that it was merely a cold affecting him.

Imperial Soldier: I-impossible! How could we have been defeated by—urgh!
Zehek: Huff... Puff... Looks like... I took care of them...
Lyria: A-are you okay, Zehek? You're drenched in sweat!
Zehek: This is nothing... Or maybe not—Urk!
Vyrn: H-hey, are you okay? We need to find that herb!
Zehek: N-not to worry... I know my body well.
Zehek: I'll be fine... There's no need to worry...
Lyria: Ahh! Zehek!
Vyrn: Oh, no! Snap out of it! Come on! Hey!
After the battle, Zehek loses consciousness. (Captain) and the crew take him to see a nearby doctor.
Doctor: Hmmm... Yep, that's a cold.
Zehek: Sniffle...
Doctor: The pain he's feeling at the moment is most likely due to a fever.
Doctor: Honestly... If you're feeling feverish, try not to push yourself too hard.
Zehek: Sorry...
Vyrn: Are you kidding! You had us worried sick over a stupid cold!
Zehek: Ugh! Gah! T-the symptoms of my illness have returned!
Lyria: Geez! The next time anything happens to you, it's straight to bed for you!
All's well that ends well—the crew lets out a collective sigh of relief.
However, the ancient illness still rests within Zehek's body, quietly baring its fangs.

Just Like a Child[edit]

Zehek put some distance between himself and Mishra in order to get away from her uninhibited behavior. Mishra slumped down, pained by that cold and distant behavior. Zehek had a change of heart when he saw Mishra in that condition, and went to see her so that they could locate the phantom herb sought by Mishra and to clear up any misunderstandings.

The Grandcypher sailed peacefully through the sky, until one day...
Zehek: ...
Vyrn: What's the deal, Zehek? You playing hide and seek or something?
Lyria: That means she might not be feeling too well herself! We need to go talk to her!
Vyrn: Hey... what's with the hiding? You hurt or something?
Zehek: No... no need to worry yourself over me.
Mishra's Voice: Zehek? Zehek, where are you?!
Lyria: ...hm? Zehek? It sounds like Mishra's calling you!
Vyrn: Hmm? Don't tell me you aren't gonna go?
Zehek: Er...
Mishra: Zehek! What in the blazes are you doing here? I've been searching up and down for you.
Mishra: What's the matter with you, Zehek? Is your arrhythmia acting up again? Let's take a look at you.
Zehek: Save it... You're my master, not my doctor.
Mishra: Oh, brr. Chilly as ever. And here I thought you a friend of mine.
Vyrn: Uh-huh. Just think of it! The old master and student back together again. No need to be shy!
Zehek: Shy? What in d'you mea?*cough*!
Mishra: You were quite the sickly young sprite when I took you in...
Mishra: You'd not even be gallivanting around with this lot if it weren't for my efforts!
Mishra: Quit your brooding! You've been in my care before, haven't you?!
Zehek: Ah... made to quaff strange potions and playing the laboratory rat?*cough*! Ack!
Mishra: Oh... is that how it was? My memory seems to have failed me.
Zehek: Master... I am not some toy for you to play with!
Zehek: *cough*... all that time I spent with you, master. You think I haven't caught on yet?
Mishra: Oh, my... to hear my dearest student speak so...
Mishra: Forgive me... I've always meddled a bit too much, I know. I must mend my ways...
Zehek: ...
Vyrn: H- Hey! Are you okay with that? Your master just, y'know, left and all?
Lyria: She looked so broken up...
Zehek: ...
Zehek: *cough*!
Vyrn: Whoa, now! You haven't been sleeping with your windows open, have you?
Zehek: It's nothing... did you require something?
Vyrn: Well, if you're asking... I was kind of wondering about things between you and Mishra.
Zehek: Ah...
Zehek: It's not what you think! We never...
Zehek: I... I never even...
Lyria: Huh? So if Zehek has those herbs... and Mishra is looking for them...
Zehek: That... it's pure coincidence!
Vyrn: Haha... well if that's the case, what the hell are we doing standing around, (Captain)?
Pressed by (Captain), Zehek went off in search of Mishra, dragging his feet with each step.
Mishra: Hoho! This is quite the shocker! Such rare herbs, all for little old me...
Lyria: Oh, that is so good to hear! You seem pretty happy, Mishra!
Zehek: *cough*
Vyrn: Wait a minute! Somebody turn off that lamp. Oh, wait. It's Zehek.
Mishra: Oh, Zehek... you haven't changed since you were a boy.
Mishra: Hehe. For all the running he did from my treatments, guess who came slinking back because he was too scared to sleep alone...
Lyria: Wow! We're learning all sorts of things about you, Zehek!
Zehek: Gah! When did I ever? You don't need to go telling them about that!
Mishra: Ohohoho! What's wrong, my dear? Is that a thumpity-thump-thump I hear?
Mishra: Oh, this is too perfect! You are just too, too adorable!
Zehek: Master! I with you would stop! How many times must I tell you I am not your playthi?*cough*!
Mishra: Ahahaha! Oh, fine.
Mishra: Now that Zehek has given me what I needed, I can start working on the potion.
Mishra: Hmph... Lyria! Vyrn! Bring these to my lab and be quick about it.
Vyrn: Whoa! Where's the fire?!
Lyria: Wow! I-is this it? What? Over here?
Zehek: This is bad! We can't be here! Run, (Captain)!
Vyrn: What's that supposed to mean? What d'you mean, run?
Mishra: Ohoho... this is too, too exciting! These herbs contain a very special ingredient, you see...
Mishra: Oh, yes... crossbreed them using a special technique...no, that's not quite right. They need to be further purified...mhmm, mhmm.
Mishra: What are you doing standing around?! Zehek, prepare that for me. And you, (Captain)! You need to be over here!
Surround by Zehek, (Captain), and the others, Mishra found herself getting more than a little carried away in her endless pursuit of beauty.
And finally our heroes learned the extent of Zehek's affliction.
