The Midnight Prowler
As our heroes went to put out a fire, they met a mysterious guy named Elmott. The next day, they happened to witness Elmott defeating the true culprit behind the fires, but the villagers in turn suspected them of the crime. Elmott told them he’d buy them some time to escape, but Lyria convinced him to come along.
Late one night, (Captain) and company were on their way back to a certain village after completing a monster extermination request.
Just as they were about to return to the airship, a villager came running out of the forest, white as a sheet.
Villager: Aaaahhh!!! F-FIRE!!! The forest is on fire!!!
Vyrn: Say what?! N-Now that you mention it, there’s a kind of... burning smell...
Lyria: Oh! Look! There’s smoke rising from the forest!
Vyrn: Oh crap...! This could be trouble... Let’s help put out the fire!
(Captain) and company rushed into the fire-swept forest.
As our heroes searched for the cause of the fire, a suspicious young man appeared.
???: What the...? What are you all doin’ here? Run along to bed now, kiddies.
Vyrn: Excuse you?! Don’t judge us by our looks! I’ll have you know we’re perfectly capable skyfarers!
???: Like I care, kid. Listen, you won’t grow up big and strong if you keep walkin’ around at this time of night, m'kay?
???: Hang on... Just one thing... You there, what’s your name?
Vyrn: Hm? This is (Captain)! The captain of our order!
???: Aha...! I see... Your scent is like mine... I’ll remember that face, at least.
???: Now then, run along, little kiddies. It’s not safe in these parts... Fires tend to pop up... It’s quite a sight...
With that, the young man disappeared into the darkness.
In the end, the fire was put out before it got serious, and apparently the cause of the fire had vanished, but...
Villager 1: Hey, have you heard? There was another fire scare in the forest yesterday...
Villager 2: Yeah. Four days in a row, huh? Rumor has it there’s an arsonist in town. I bet there’ll be another tonight...
Vyrn: Hmmm... Say, do you think it could be that suspicious dude from yesterday...?
Lyria: Hmm... I’m not sure. He didn’t seem like such a bad person to me...
Lyria: Oh!Th-this smell...!
Vyrn: Look! There’s smoke coming from the forest again! C’mon! We’d better hurry, (Captain)!
???: Listen, I don’t hate your fires, but this is going a little far for a prank...
Fire Monster: GRRRR...
???: There are a ton of people here who’d prefer it if the forest WASN’T on fire. So, yeah, I’m gonna need you to stop.
???: Relax... It won’t hurt a bit. MY flames can turn any monster to ash in an instant...!!!
The moment he unleashed the flames, the monster vanished, and silence fell over the forest...
Vyrn: That was incredible... D-Did he really just do that?!
???: Hrrrm? You’re the people from yesterday...
???: What are you doing here? Didn’t I tell you not to walk around out here? It’s unsafe, remember?
Lyria: E-Excuse me! Was that monster the culprit behind all the fires...?
???: Maybe. So what? What do you care?
Lyria: Then that means... You aren’t the arsonist... In fact, you’re the hero of this story...
Elmott: Gahaha! Like I care about that! I, the great Elmott, simply burn things as I please... That’s all there is to it.
Elmott: That monster earlier was simply trespassing on my turf... and I didn’t appreciate it, that’s all.
Elmott: Besides, the villagers all have it out for me anyway...
Villager: Hey! Over there! Those people are suspicious... They did it, didn’t they?!
Elmott: Tch... Great, here comes trouble...
Elmott: Hey! Kids! Get away from the village before ya get involved in this mess.
Elmott: You’re skyfarers, right? I’ll buy ya some time, so take your ship and get out of here... Hurry!
Lyria: Huh? But... what about you, Elmott...?
Elmott: Hrrrm? This misunderstanding ain’t likely to get cleared up. I’ll have to leave the village... That is, assuming I can.
Lyria: In that case... Why don’t you just come with us?!
Elmott: What?! Don’t be ridiculous...
Lyria: But... At this rate, you’ll be charged with a crime you didn’t commit!
Elmott: And I should go with you because...?
Choose: Can you really escape on your own?
- Can you really escape on your own?
- We can’t just abandon you here
Elmott: Hrrrm? Don’t underestimate me, kid... As if anyone from the village could give me trouble...
Vyrn: Whoa! Th-They’re coming from over there, too! They’ve nearly got us surrounded!Choose: We can’t just abandon you here
Elmott: Like I care... Worry about me all you like, kid, but I’m not goin’ down.
Lyria: B-but...! I refuse to just abandon you!Continue 1
Elmott: Tch... Argh! Fine, whatever! Let’s go, Leader!
Elmott: Good grief... You better not make me regret agreeing to come with you...
Lyria: Don’t worry, we won’t! Right, (Captain)? Now let's go! This way!
Vyrn: Good grief... For now, we just need to get the hell out of here!
And so, under the cover of night, (Captain) and company left the village behind.
With Elmott newly counted among their number, our heroes resumed their journey.
A Boy Alone
(Captain) and company arrive at a town’s festival completely by chance and are each having fun. While calling them names, Elmott plays with the children there. Attracted to the commotion of the festival, monsters appear. (Captain) and company head off to hunt them down.
In the middle of their journey, (Captain) and company stop by a town completely by chance. There, they enjoy a festival.
Elmott: You damn brats!
Child 1: Wow! He got mad!
Child 2: Ahaha! Neener neener! Catch me if you can!
Elmott: Hehehe... You got guts for taunting me...
Elmott: But I’ll make you regret it right away! That you made a fool out of me!
Child 3: Ahaha! Run away!
Elmott: Hey, wait! You damn brats!
Vyrn: Good grief... Who would have thought that Elmott would be popular with the kids?
Lyria: Hehe! Elmott is actually really kind...
Vyrn: No way! Have you seen him? He has the face of a villain! No matter what rose-color glasses you wear, he looks like a low-level goon.
Elmott: Hey. I can hear you, lizard...
Vyrn: Whoa! Y-You don’t need to play with the kids anymore?!
Elmott: What? What time do you think it is? I already sent all the kids home.
Elmott: Now it’s time for us adults... Don’t you agree, Vyrn?
Elmott: I could take a cheeky little lizard and roast, char, or burn it, the kids wouldn’t be scarred for life!
Vyrn: Eep! W-Wait! My tongue just slipped back there...
Townsperson: Whoa! S-Somebody help! The monsters!
Elmott: Tch... Did they get attracted by the festival?
Elmott: Hehehe... Bring it on! I’ll take care of the lizard after I deal with them!
Elmott: Let’s do this, (Captain)! I’ll burn all of them to a crisp!
A Boy Alone: Scene 2
The party defeated the monsters, but they then find a child that is trying to leave the town alone. (Captain) and company chase away the monsters to take the child back into town to safety.
Elmott: I dealt with most of them... Now it’s your turn, lizard...
Vyrn: Hold it! (Captain)! Elmott! You see that?
Elmott: All I see is your future of being a barbecued lizard...
Vyrn: Not that! Over there! There’s a kid there!
Lyria: Oh? You’re right. What is that boy doing out in this hour?
Elmott: There are monsters in this area. What a careless brat...
Elmott: Idiots need corporal punishment to be taught a lesson...!
Elmott: Let’s chase away those monsters and bring that brat back into town! (Captain)!
A Boy Alone: Scene 3
The boy wants to leave town because of how different he is from everyone else. Elmott tries to persuade the boy in a threatening way, but suddenly monsters appear.
Elmott: Hey, you brat... What’s your problem?
Erune Boy: Eek! W-What are you?!
Lyria: Um... Well... It’s dangerous out here, so let’s go back to town...
Erune Boy: No way... I can’t be in that town or with the people there.
Vyrn: What? You don’t want to go back?
Erune Boy: Because everyone is so different from me... That’s why I can’t make any friends...
Elmott: Tch... Hey, you little brat...
Erune Boy: Shut up! Even if you get mad at me, I’m not going back!
Elmott: I hate brats like you more than anything in the world.
Elmott: Just shut up and go back. Keep throwing your tantrum and I’ll burn you...
Erune Boy: Eek!
Elmott: Besides... You’re probably the only one that cares about being different.
Erune Boy: Huh...?
Elmott: Hey, you brat... Be careful so you don’t get caught in this mess...
Elmott: I’m in a bad mood right now... I won’t go easy on you!
A Boy Alone: Scene 4
After safely bringing the boy back to town, (Captain) and company leave the next morning. Vyrn and Lyria finally learn about how caring Elmott is, but Elmott denies it profusely. Although only for a brief moment, his cheek blushes.
Managing to take the boy back to town, (Captain) and company leave the next morning.
Vyrn: Hehe! I never knew Elmott could be that caring!
Elmott: Lizard... Say that again and I’ll burn your mouth shut...
Lyria: But you persuaded the Erune boy...
Elmott: Tch... I just hate kids like that...
Elmott: It irritates me because it feels like I’m looking at myself from years ago...
Lyria: Hehe! So you were like that when you were a kid, Elmott!
Elmott: Hmph... Say what you want.
After saying that, Elmott turns away.
But for a brief moment, there is a tint of red on his cheek that Lyria sees.
Teacher vs Midnight Prowler
That night Elmott returned home to get an earful from Suframare. She’d been up half the night worrying herself sick. Suframare decided to tag along the next night and found that Elmott had been using this time to do a little monster hunting and keep the kids in town safe. Their fondness for the youngster’s wellbeing helped a little to bridge the gap between them. No sooner had Elmott returned home than he and Vyrn began to bicker. Suframare appeared, ready to give another sermon. Elmott sighed. He still had a long way to go with this partner of his.
On a certain island. Ever a fan of his nightly constitutionals, Elmott strolls through the forest at a leisurely pace.
As usual, Elmott had himself a late dinner and prepared to get himself a bit of shuteye. However...
Suframare: Hey! Elmott! Where exactly did you get off to?
Elmott: Wha? I go where I want and do what I want.
Suframare: Goodness... do you realize how worried everyone is?! Especially Vyrn!
Elmott: Sigh... even the lizard’s worried about me. I’m gonna lose my edge...
Suframare: Hey! You keep changing the subject!
Elmott: (Hah. You know... she kind of looks like... )
Elmott: (Snkkt... she moves just like that monkey doll I had when I was a kid... )
Suframare: Hey! Would you care to tell me what’s so funny? Everybody is worried sick about you! And I won’t have it!
Elmott: Damn... you know what, kid? You’re a real pain in the ass. The lizard’s already on my list. You wanna be on there, too?
Suframare: What?! Who exactly are you calling “kid”? I’m 22 years old, I’ll have you know! I’m a fully grown adult!
Elmott: Hm? That’s not far off from me. You know, it’s hard to tell with Harvin...
Suframare: Wha? You’re in your 20s? Hehe. I could’ve sworn you were younger than me, given how you look...
Elmott: Wow. That’s a first. People usually think I’m older.
Suframare: Hehe. Well it’s quite the shock!
Suframare: ... wait a second! Did you just try to change the subject?! Hey! What kind of way is that to treat your teacher?!
Elmott: (... dang. So close... )
Suframare: Goodness, me... do you understand? If you’re going to be out late, you need to let me?
Elmott: Hah! You think I’m so kinda juvenile delinquent, don’tcha?! Fine, fine! I got it. I’m gonna hit the hay. Night.
Suframare: Hey! ... I’m not done talking!
Elmott decided he’d had enough for tonight. He went back to his room.
Suframare wasn’t quite satisfied with that, but what could she do? She took a dip in the bath and went to bed.
And the next night.
Elmott: Alright. I know you gotta eat like everyone else...
Elmott: But towns are for people. They’re off limits. You know what happens if you step foot in town, don’t you?
Elmott: Tsk... what? The damned lizard is worried about me? Who the hell does he think he is...
Suframare: Hey! Elmott! I was wondering where you went! And I find you here!
Elmott: What?! You followed me?!
Suframare: Gracious, me... this place is dangerous, you know! Just a little while ago, monsters came down from the mountains and attacked the children!
Suframare: I told Vyrn the same thing I told you! Practicing magic at night can get you hurt. Just don’t do it!
Elmott: Sigh... nothing’s gonna hurt me. You said monsters, right? Look over there.
Suframare followed Elmott’s finger to a pile of smoldering flames. Words failed her.
Elmott: Heh... you see that? You don’t need to worry about me.
Suframare: ... so you heard about the monsters in the forest and decided you’d protect Vyrn... and the children...
Elmott: Hah! You’re reading way too much into this. I wanna burn things... so I do.
Suframare: I see... so I guess I can tell Vyrn it’s safe now. He’s been wanting to work on his magic.
Elmott: Just wondering... why do you gotta teach him magic?
Suframare: Because he said he wants to learn, of course. I couldn’t have asked for a better pupil! Hehe...
Suframare: Hehe. Didn’t you come to me because you wanted to learn, Elmott?
Elmott: Nah. Old Elmott here’s been able to use fire since the day he was born. I just needed to figure out how to control it.
Suframare: I see... it’s natural for you. You’re a bit like Lily in that respect.
Elmott: Hm? What’s that supposed to mean?
Suframare: Lily is a princess of the Crystalia family... born with an innate and powerful magic. In fact, everything around her freezes...
Suframare: She needed something to keep her power in check... she went out all alone in search of spring. And she’s still so young...
Elmott: Come again? No one stopped her? They just let a kid wonder out alone? Can’t say I like the sound of that...
Suframare: Of course I thought to stop her. But by the time I knew it was already too late... how could such a thing happen...
It happens to lots of kids... you got ones who can control fire, lightning, you name it. They get chased out to who knows where...
It happens to lots of kids... like with Alec...
Elmott: Tsk... makes me sick.
Suframare: It does indeed... I hope one day to be someone that can help Lily and children like her...
Suframare: But it’s so wonderful of you, Elmott! You use your anger for the sake of the little ones!
Suframare: Hehe. I knew you were a much sweeter child than you let on! I understand now!
Elmott: Wha? For the love of... what part of me looks sweet to you?
Suframare: But you know... the way you worry yourself over the children is the way everyone else worries about you.
Suframare: Listen, will you? You don’t have to face the danger alone! You hear?
Elmott: (Here we go again... what a pain in the ass... )
And so, with his work finished, Elmott followed Suframare back to the inn.
Vyrn: Hey! Didn’t expect you to be back so early!
Elmott: Wha? What d’you expect... can’t take a walk with some little bug buzzing in your damn ear...
Vyrn: Hm? Bug? You mean Suframare?
Elmott: Who else... you’re telling me being around her all day doesn’t get to you?
Vyrn: What?! You can’t talk about her like that!
Elmott: Huh? C’mon. She’s a real pest, right?
Vyrn: GRRRR! You’re gonna eat those words, guy!
Suframare: Hey! Vyrn! Elmott! You musn’t fight!
Elmott: (Wha?! There she goes again! Some teacher I’ve got here... )
Suframare: Gracious... I’m you’re getting along, but no fighting! Ever!
Vyrn: But you heard how he was talking about you...
Suframare: No means no, Vyrn! No ifs, ands, or buts!
Elmott: (Hah... how about that. She’s the spitting image... )
Suframare: Hey! Elmott! Would you care to tell me what’s so funny? I’m quite angry, you know!
Elmott: Snkkt... nothing.
It seemed that, in spite of her severe demeanor, even Suframare could show a bit of kindness to a student as rambunctious as Elmott.
And so the day finally came when they realized they had a shared interest in the well-being of children.
