The crew meets a knight named Zeta, and she invites them to join a secret organization dubbed the Society with promises of anti-primal beast weapons. (Captain) is unsure how to respond, so Zeta decides to join the crew for as long as it takes.
The crew meets a knight named Zeta during a battle on an island.
After the fight Zeta, who has something on her mind, speaks with the crew.
Zeta: What do all of you intend to do now?
Vyrn: Why the sudden interest, Red?
Zeta: What do you think of my spear, (Captain)?
Zeta: I'm sure you saw it. It's an incredible weapon.
Vyrn: Yeah, whenever you say something, that spear glows.
Zeta: You're absolutely right! Check this out!
Zeta: Spear of Arvess! Give form to my faith and become a piercing fang!
Her spear seems to glow in concert with her voice.
Zeta: This light can exterminate primal beasts. This is what the spear was made for, but that's top secret!
Zeta: When this beauty's wielded properly, even a lone warrior can defeat primal beasts.
What Zeta says is true. She proved to be an even match for a primal beast she encountered on the island.
Zeta: And each primal beast defeated using this spear lives on within it, contributing to its glow.
Zeta: That glow is proof of my—I mean our—power. Don't you think that's amazing?
(Captain)'s not quite sure what she's trying to say.
Zeta: But maybe I should just get to the point already...
Zeta: How would you like a weapon like this?
Vyrn: Ooh? You mean there's more than one of these out there?
Zeta: You could say that. We... Sorry, I can't say anything more right now...
Zeta: If you come with us, you'll also get a weapon like this, (Captain).
Zeta: Come on! It's definitely the right course for you!
Vyrn: That's all well and good, but we already have our own destination in mind.
Zeta: Oh yeah? Where's that?
(Captain) tells her they're traveling to Estalucia in pursuit of (Captain)'s father.
Zeta: Estalucia? Are you serious? You can go beyond the Grim Basin?
Zeta: Of course. That explains why you're collecting Sky Map pieces and fighting primal beasts...
Vyrn: Yeah, but we end up taking a lot of detours along the way.
Vyrn: What you're talking about isn't just some detour, is it?
Zeta: Not really. I'm asking you to join the Society.
Vyrn: I'm not sure what your angle is, but none of us plan to leave our crew.
Zeta: I think we'll probably end up going to Estalucia too.
Vyrn: Whoa! Are you serious, Red?
Zeta: Look, I've been sworn to secrecy about this, so I can't really discuss the details, but...
Zeta: The Executives told us that something awful will happen, and we'll have to go to the island.
Vyrn: Something awful? What do you mean?
Zeta: I don't really know. Anyway...
Zeta: What about my offer? I know you'd be a major asset to our group, (Captain)!
Choose: Let me think about it.
- Let me think about it.
- I believe in controlling my own destiny.
Zeta: Oh? That's definitely better than I expected!
Vyrn: Hey! Are you serious, (Captain)?Choose: I believe in controlling my own destiny.
Zeta: What? Are you trying to be cool?
Vyrn: That's our (Captain)!
Vyrn: So that's that, Red. The captain has spoken.
Zeta: Oh well. It's not like you said no exactly.
Vyrn: Quite the little optimist, aren't you?
Zeta: Just take some time to think it over. I'm sure you're tempted...Continue 1
Zeta: I mean, who wouldn't be tempted with scoring a mighty weapon and a free trip to Estalucia?
Zeta: And you know what? I've decided to patiently wait for your answer, (Captain).
Zeta: In the meantime how would you like it if I help out as part of your crew?
Vyrn: Hold it! You can't just decide on your own like that!
Zeta: We'll see about that! I don't give up easily. You guys will see that soon enough.
Zeta: Besides, being recruited by a fine captain like (Captain) can only be good for my reputation.
Zeta: Hey! Watch it with that scowl! You should be grateful to have someone like me!
Thus the knight Zeta joins the crew.
Her proposal will continue to bother (Captain).
The crew stops at an island at Zeta's request. She immediately runs off to meet the lord of the island alone, but the crew chases after her her out of worry.
As the crew nears an island, Zeta suddenly starts making a fuss.
Zeta: Excuse me! I have a request!
Katalina: What's the matter, Zeta? You're almost acting politely for once...
Zeta: I've got some things to take care of on that island... Can we make a quick stop?
Katalina: Hm... I suppose we don't have any urgent business. I don't mind, but what's this all about?
Zeta: I heard an unsettling rumor about the island. I just want to check it out.
The airship changes course and soon arrives at the island's port.
Zeta: See you guys later! I'm just gonna meet with someone real quick!
Vyrn: Hey! Who are you in such a hurry to see?
Zeta: The lord of this island!
Vyrn: Did she say lord? What does she have to do with a lord?
Katalina: Hmm... I might have an idea...
Vyrn: You know something?
Katalina: Well, I can't remember it exactly, but...
Katalina: I once heard a story about a beautiful blonde knight who became a wanted criminal after insulting an island lord.
Katalina: Or something like that. Could it be Zeta?
Vyrn: So you're thinking this lord and the lord from your story are the same?
Katalina: Could be. I certainly hope she's not here to get revenge for that arrest warrant...
Vyrn: We can't just sit on our tails if she's in danger! Let's go, (Captain)!
Vyrn: Hey! Red!
Zeta: Huh? What are you doing here, Vyrn? (Captain) and Katalina, you guys too... I thought I told you all to wait on the airship!
Katalina: Yes, but we were worried. We thought you might be out for payback...
Zeta: How do you know about that? Fine, whatever.
Zeta: I just didn't want to drag you guys into problems from my past.
Ruffian 1: Hey. That woman... Isn't she the one on the wanted sign?
Ruffian 2: Looks like it. How much is the reward?
Ruffian 1: Who cares. We can check after we turn her in. Let's go.
Zeta: See? I told you guys there'd be trouble.
Zeta's Fate: Scene 2
Zeta explains that she became a wanted criminal on the island after turning down an offer from its lord. The crew arrives at the lord's mansion, which is suspiciously run-down, and Zeta thinks that it may be the work of the Foe.
Katalina: Zeta, what happened on this island? I can't imagine you being treated as a criminal...
Zeta: Um... It's sort of hard to...
Zeta: Oh, all right! I'll talk!
Zeta: I used to be in the order of knights here for a little while. We ended up not getting along.
Vyrn: Red... Don't tell me you attacked the lord when you left...
Zeta: Of course not! You know me better than that!
Zeta: They told me I had to become the lord's adopted daughter if I wanted a promotion. I was so mad I stormed right out of there!
Katalina: And the lord took that as an insult...
Zeta: I guess so. And that's why the rumor I heard about this place is bothering me.
Katalina: What rumor?
Zeta: Apparently the lord has been acting strangely. You saw it right? There's something off about the town...
Zeta: It was much nicer when I used to live here.
Zeta: So I came to find out what happened.
Vyrn: I see. All right! We've come this far already, so we'll go with you to this lord's place!
Zeta: Huh? Now wait just a minute!
Katalina: Haha. We can't let our friend go charging off into danger alone.
Zeta: You're all such softies!
Katalina: Is this really the lord's mansion? It looks like it's seen better days.
Zeta: I knew it. There's something wrong here. It doesn't even look like they clean the place!
Vyrn: Whoa! Monsters!
Zeta: I hate to admit it, but this could be the work of the Foe.
Zeta's Fate: Scene 3
The crew arrives at the lord's room, but his words make no sense. Zeta runs out of patience and pierces his chest with a spear, revealing that the lord is actually a monster in disguise.
The crew makes its way through the mansion and arrives at the lord's room.
Zeta has a bad feeling about what awaits as she places her hand on the doorknob.
Zeta: Hello! I'm coming in!
Lord: Who are you?
Zeta: Excuse me? You wanted to adopt me, and you forget who I am? What's the big idea?
Lord: Adopt, adopt, adopt... Hm...
Lord: I'm more concerned about the state of the town than some silly adoption.
Zeta: Is that so? Then why's the town completely run-down, and why aren't the knights doing anything about it?
Lord: I replaced them with monsters. I was told to bring disorder. By the way, did you say you wanted to be my adopted daughter?
Lord: I've adopted so many monsters, and a few straggling knights are still around. But adding a daughter? Hm, not sure about that.
Zeta: Huh? What are you even talking about? You're not making any sense!
Zeta: Actually who are you? Because you're clearly not the lord. Are you disguising yourself with magic?
Lord: I've been the lord here for many years... But...
Lord: I was told to bring disorder... I'm just a minion after all...
Zeta: Oh, forget this!
Zeta pierces the lord's chest with her spear.
Vyrn: Hey! Have you lost it?
Lord: Ngh... Grrr!
Zeta: Just as I thought. Those knights couldn't even see through a simple ruse like this? Pathetic!
Zeta's Fate: Scene 4
After defeating the fake island lord and rescuing the real one, Zeta discovers that the matter concerning her adoption and promotion was a misunderstanding. Though the dispute has been settled, (Captain) continues to worry about Zeta's mention of the Foe.
(Captain) and crew defeat the imposter and rescue the lord of the island.
Zeta: You're lucky we came by. This island would have been done for if we hadn't.
Lord: I apologize. No... I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Vyrn: Bet you're glad to be safe and sound!
Lord: Yes... It seems their goal was to make me watch as the town was run into the ground.
Vyrn: What's up with that? What kind of crazy person wants to do that?
Lord: I have no idea either, but...
Lord: Zeta, you are every bit as skilled as they say. I would have liked to welcome you as my daughter.
Zeta: Please! I left the island because you used that as a condition to get a promotion.
Lord: What? I arranged no such thing.
Zeta: Huh? What do you mean? I heard it straight from the leader of the knights!
Lord: I never made an official statement about it. I did mention it in passing, but... it seems the leader acted without my orders.
Zeta: I sure wish someone had told me sooner...
Zeta: No wonder I didn't get along with that order. It's almost funny now.
Lord: It seems there was a misunderstanding. And I lost my top knight because of it. How foolish.
Zeta: I sure don't regret it though. I was able to save the town thanks to the skills I gained out in the world.
Lord: I see... Zeta, I'd like to ask one thing of you.
Zeta: Mmm? What is it?
Lord: I want you to come back to this island one day so I can thank you properly at that time. I'd do so now, but with the town as it is...
Zeta: Okay. I'll take care of the root of the problem by then.
Vyrn: We'll be seeing you around, island lord.
And so the crew leaves the island.
Zeta: Ugh... How exhausting. That sucked as much as I knew it would.
Vyrn: But you're not a wanted criminal anymore, so it all worked out, right?
Zeta: I guess so...
Vyrn: Sheesh, what a surprise! If you had been adopted by that lord, you'd be Princess Zeta right now.
Zeta: What? P-Princess Zeta? Cut it out!
Choose: Long live Princess Zeta!
- Long live Princess Zeta!
- That doesn't really suit Zeta.
Zeta: Agh! You too, (Captain)?
Vyrn: Lookie here! Red's redder than ever! Don't be shy, Your Highness!
Zeta: Ugh! I thought I said zip it, Vyrn!Choose: That doesn't really suit Zeta.
Zeta: Excuse me? I mean, you have a point and all, but you could at least let me say that. What are you implying, (Captain)?
Zeta: Now I'm pissed! Get over here, (Captain)! We're gonna duke it out like true knights!Continue 1
And so another of Zeta's adventures comes to an end.
But Zeta's mention of the Foe will bother (Captain) for many days to come.
Formerly obsessed with racking up professional achievements, Zeta has loosened up somewhat since traveling with the crew. Observing the change in her, Vaseraga asks if she can continue to keep a cool head in battle, no matter what occurs. Sensing conflict on the horizon within the Society, Vaseraga asks if she will stand by him if the need arises. Bewildered, she nevertheless agrees.
Vaseraga: What? There was a mistake with the request?
Zeta: Jeez... Give me a break already... How could they just cancel a request like that!
Vyrn: H-hey... I understand you're upset, but don't hunt down the client for revenge or anything, okay?
Zeta: Huh? I don't really mind that much, you know. This is hardly enough to make me angry.
Vyrn: Okay, cool... We can have Siero talk to the client about it though, so hang tight.
Vyrn: Man, you're scary when you're angry... This is why I call you Red.
Zeta: Look, I said I wasn't that mad...
You're not even listening to me, are you?
(Captain) heads to the Knickknack Shack with Vyrn in tow, leaving Zeta and Vaseraga behind.
Left to idle on the ship, the two soon grow bored.
Zeta: Huh? What is it? What are you staring at?
Vaseraga: You've changed, Zeta.
Zeta: What? What's with you all of a sudden?
Vaseraga: (From what I can see, she's not as obsessed with racking up achievements as before.)
Vaseraga: (Must be the effect of hanging out with this crew... She seems calmer than before.)
Zeta: Seriously, what are you staring at?
Vaseraga: Nothing important. But we've got a rough road ahead of us... As long as you can fight with a cool head, that's all that matters.
Zeta: Are you talking about the whole deal with the higher-ups at the Society?
Zeta: Are those rumors true? That one of the founders turned traitor?
Vaseraga: I don't know in detail. They're only rumors that started circulating recently. The incident itself seems to have been a while ago.
Zeta: And they say that if the traitor is going to start something, it'll be sooner rather than later... right?
Vaseraga: Yes. Although I'm not certain. The tendency of the Society to cloak its organizational structure in mystery isn't new.
Zeta: Good grief. Infighting, huh? Hope it doesn't escalate into anything serious. Especially after I've worked so hard to gain their trust.
Vaseraga: I don't think there's any cause for concern. Even if the Society were to split, the organization itself would survive.
Zeta: Hmm... A split, huh? Don't like the sound of that.
Vaseraga: Yeah. I've been concerned about how you would handle something like that, if it came up.
Zeta: Huh? Handle it?
Vaseraga: Zeta, if a rift in the Society resulted in one of your companions being placed in danger... what would you do?
Zeta: I don't really know...
Vaseraga: If something happened to the Society or one of our companions... If I needed your help, could I count on you?
Zeta: Huh? Where's this coming from? You've always been able to before, haven't you?
Zeta: But if that happened, we'd have to leave the crew for a while, huh?
Vyrn: Hold on a sec! What's all this about leaving the crew?
Zeta: Gah! Vyrn, how long have you been listening?
Vyrn: I just heard the last part... You said you're gonna leave? Did something happen?
Zeta: Hm? Er, well... It's a Society thing. A lot's going on.
Vaseraga: Yes. Don't worry yourself about it.
Vyrn: Oh, really? But we can't afford to lose you, Princess Zeta!
Zeta: What? Hold on, now. "Princess"?
Vyrn: If the glass slipper fits. You were adopted by a lord, right?
Zeta: Grr! Vyrn, there's no need to make a thing of it!
Vyrn: Ha ha! Don't get angry again, Red! It's not an insult or anything! I'm not the only one who calls you that either.
Vaseraga: He's right. Standing your ground is important, but you also have to know which battles are winnable, Princess.
Zeta: Nnngh! You too?
Vaseraga: Haha... Forget I said anything.
Zeta: Grr! Don't laugh at me! Listen here...
Vaseraga and Zeta have quarreled constantly since the crew first met them.
But, perhaps due to the crew's influence, things have been changing between the pair, ever so gradually.
