Support level C

Moulder
Vanessa, how are you holding up?▼
Vanessa
Father Moulder.▼
We are struggling, but
I'll pull through somehow.▼
Say, Father Moulder...▼
Moulder
You want to know about Prince
Innes, don't you? He's doing well.▼
I was worried for a moment,
but he'll be fine.▼
Vanessa
Oh!▼
I, uh... Thank you.
...▼
How did you know?▼
Moulder
Well...▼
You see, as a priest, I've met
people from all walks of life.▼
Some of them--like you-- well, I
can read them like an open book.▼
Vanessa
You...can read my mind?
That's so...embarrassing..
Moulder
No, no. It's not like that. I just mean
you are a pure, straightforward girl.▼
That's a compliment worthy of a knight.▼
Vanessa
Do you think so?
Thank you, Father.▼
Moulder
Hm. Say, would you like to hear
a story from the prince's youth?▼
Vanessa
I'd like that, Father. Very much!▼
Moulder
Hm...
Oh my!▼
You know, I think we'd better
take care of our enemies, first.▼
Vanessa
Look out!
Over there! Stay here, Father. I'll
take care of this.▼
Moulder
Yes, I think that would be best.▼
Vanessa
Tell me your story another time,
though. I'd like to hear it.▼
Moulder
I'd be delighted.
Another time, then.▼
Vanessa
Yes, Father!▼

Support level B

Moulder
Well, do you have time
for that story I promised?▼
Vanessa
Certainly, Father.▼
Moulder
It was over ten years ago, when
the prince was just a child.▼
There was a ceremony at the castle,
with a trick archer of sorts.▼
Vanessa
A trick archer?▼
Moulder
Yes. He was a very famous and undeniably
skilled archer from abroad.▼
He was to shoot a tiny target that had
been placed in the distance.▼
However, in the middle of the show,
someone stopped him from shooting.▼
Vanessa
Oh, no... It wasn't--▼
Moulder
Yes, it was young Prince Innes.▼
He said, "That's not far enough!
Move the target back farther!"▼
Then, he insisted on trying himself.▼
Vanessa
That's so like him!▼
Moulder
Isn't it?
King Hayden tried to stop him, but...▼
Well, you know how he is.
He doesn't listen to anyone.▼
And so, it became a contest between our
prince and this foreign archer.▼
Vanessa
So, what happened?▼
Moulder
First, they established the ground rules.▼
Each person was to shoot at the target. If
both arrows hit, they increaed the range.▼
They simply continued to move the target
back until one person missed the mark.▼
Vanessa
Sounds simple enough.▼
Moulder
Ah, but the two were evenly matched.
Every shot was a perfect bull's-eye.▼
The crowd cheered, and the target
moved ever farther back...▼
But then it came to the turning point.
THe foreign archer said,▼
"This is no test. Let's move the
target back more."▼
It seemed like a bravado, but the archer
actually had a clever tactic in mind.▼
Vanessa
Clever? How so?▼
Moulder
They had been shooting for some time,
and the archer's arms had grown weary.▼
Precision archery is far more taxing
than the battlefield, you see.▼
So even though he was a skilled archer,
he was at the limits of his endurance.▼
He was still hitting the mark accurately,
but his arm was quivering more and more.▼
Everyone knew that the prince was
on the verge of victory.▼
Vanessa
I don't understand. They were shooting at
the same target, shot for shot, right?▼
Why would moving the target make any
difference?▼
Moulder
Yes, they were still shooting at the
same target.▼
However, the archer suggested that they
move the target much farther away...▼
Much farther than any child Innes's age
could hope to loose an arrow to.▼
Vanessa
Oh, that IS clever!▼
Moulder
Even the archer, with his trained arms,
was firing at this maximum range.▼
In fact, he almost missed the target!▼
Then, it was the prince's turn.▼
Vanessa
And...?▼
Moulder
It was clearly too far away for the
young prince to hit the target.▼
But His Highness was undeterred. He drew
his string and fired up into the sky.▼
The arrow did not merely hit the target.
No, it was a perfect bull's-eye!▼
You see, the prince arced his shot
to extend his range beyond its limits.▼
To his a target this way requires incredible
skill, but the prince did it.▼
And then he turned to the archer and said,
"Shall we move the target back farther?"▼
The archer looked so crestfallen. He
admitted defeat, and it was settled.▼
Vanessa
That's amazing...▼
Moulder
That it is.▼
Vanessa
Thank you very much, Father
Moulder! That's incredible!▼
I'm even more--▼
Moulder
More...what?▼
Vanessa
Oh...
No, nothing.▼
Moulder
I'm glad you liked the story.▼
Keep up the good work, Vanessa.▼
Vanessa
Yes, sir!▼

Moulder
I'm glad to see you well, Vanessa. You
do your fellow pegasus knight proud.▼
We are blessed to have you fighitng
at our side.▼
Vanessa
You credit us warriors too much, Father.
Without healers, we would all be lost.▼
Nothing I say can tell you how much
I value your presence here.▼
Moulder
We are all doing our
part in this war.▼
No need to thank me.▼
Vanessa
I'm serious!▼
Without your help, we would
never survive these skirmishes!▼
Moulder
I'm gratified by that.
Thank you.▼
Vanessa
Father... Thank you again
for the other day.▼
Moulder
Hmm?
Oh, you mean that story?▼
Vanessa
Yes.▼
Moulder
Ah...▼
You know, you remind me of
myself, twenty years back.▼
Vanessa
Huh?▼
Moulder
Oh, never mind...
...▼
Good luck to you, Vanessa.▼
I don't know where this will lead, but
I'm sure the prince knows your feelings.▼
Vanessa
Father Moulder, I only aspire to be
worthy of his greatness.▼
I expect nothing in return.▼
Moulder
Are you sure?▼
Vanessa
...▼
Moulder
Well, do what you think is best for you.▼
We all carry many burdens... To country,
family, duty, honor...▼
However, we are all ultimately free
to embrace or reject those burdens.▼
If you find yourself in need of
spiritual guidance, speak to me.▼
Vanessa
Father Moulder, you're so kind.▼
Thank you. I'm so grateful to
have you on the field with me.▼
Moulder
Vanessa, we fight for the greater good.▼
We fight for our country, for our
friends, and...for ourselves.▼
Vanessa
You're right, Father.
In so many things.▼
