Support level C

Gerik
Tethys.
How are you feeling?▼
Tethys
Oh, Chief. Thing are as fine
as one could expect.▼
But I've been dancing so much
I've worked up quite a sweat.▼
At this rate I may even lose a few
inches off my waistline.▼
Who knows, maybe my figure will be
even more alluring than before.▼
Gerik
Ha ha ha! Well, I'm not sure that's even
possible, but keep up the good work.▼
Your dancing has had quite a restorative
effect on the troops.▼
Tethys
Really? I'm happy to hear it. I
must keep dancing then, mustn't I?▼
Oh, I almost forgot, Chief.▼
I have good news, and then I have
better news.▼
Gerik
What's the good news then?▼
Tethys
I hear today's meal is one of
your favorites, herbed stew.▼
Gerik
Oh, that is good news! It's been quite
a while since I've had any.▼
And the even better news?▼
Tethys
In this next battle, you'll get your hands
on some sort of an incredible treasure.▼
Gerik
A treasure?▼
Tethys
Yes, that's right, some sort of treasure.▼
Gerik
Ha ha ha! I see. I don't know what it
might be, but I can't wait for it.▼
Nor for today's meal.▼
Tethys
I'm going to continue dancing a bit longer
so as to work up a healthy appetite.▼
Gerik
So tell me, Tethys, when did
yo first start dancing?▼
Tethys
Oh...
Well that would have been...▼
Gerik
Hm?
What's the matter?▼
Tethys
Um, well...▼
Yes, it was long ago.
Back when Ewan was still young.▼
Gerik
What is it, Tethys?▼
Tethys
...I'm sorry, Chief. I'll explain it
another time. Can we drop it for now?▼
Gerik
Tethys...▼

Support level B

Tethys
Chief.▼
The truth is, Ewan and I? We were
abandoned by our parents.▼
Gerik
...
Oh, I see...▼
Tethys
Um...▼
I wandered about with little Ewan in tow.
He had no idea what was happening.▼
I was a child myself with no job.▼
We went to bed hungry every night,
and our clothes were rags...▼
Gerik
...▼
Tethys
Then one day I said to myself,
"We cannot go on like this!"▼
I watched a dancer on the street corner
and memorized all of her moves.▼
I wasn't a very coordinated child and
it was so difficult.▼
I didn't have real shoes, so my feet
were a mess of blisters,▼
and I fell so many times I was covered
in cuts and bruises.▼
It was painful. And miserable. And
very,very difficult. But I never cried.▼
Because if I were to cry, he would cry.
And I loved seeing Ewan's smiling face.▼
I wanted him to smile all the time,
so I worked hard so he could.▼
Gerik
Tethys...▼
Tethys
Tee hee hee. What a sad and
miserable tale. I'm sorry.▼
I was reminded of it all just recently,
and I was overcome with emotion...▼
But that's how I earned the dancing skills
and the physique I have now!▼
All of the hard work back then
has made me the woman I am today.▼
What do you say to that?▼
Gerik
I'm not sure what to say.▼
So before you met up with us, the two of you
had a rough time of it, did you?▼
Tethys
Ok, that's enough. The past is the past!
You mustn't tell anyone about this.▼
I don't share this story with others.
I only told you because you're the chief.▼
A story of toil and hardship doesn't quite
fit my mysterious image, does it?▼
You know what I'd like?
For you tell me more about you.▼
Gerik
Sure. Another time, though, OK?▼
Tethys
Alright. Let's see this
thing through to the end.▼
If we do our best, good things will come
out of it. And then better things after that.▼
Right, Chief?▼
Gerik
Right, Tethys. You be careful.▼
Tethys
Of course! And you too, Chief!▼

Support level A

Tethys
Um, Chief, there's actually one
thing I've been wanting to ask you.▼
Gerik
And what's that?▼
Tethys
Sorry if this brings up any bad memories, but
how'd you get that scar on your face?▼
Gerik
This?▼
I got this beauty when I had
just started out as a mercenary.▼
I was still a novice, but I was feeling
pretty good about my swordsmanship.▼
I got to a point where I was arrogant
enough to believe no one could beat me.▼
Then one day it happened... It's something
I've never been able to forget.▼
Tethys
What happened?▼
Gerik
It was just another battle. I'd been hired
on as another sword and then I met him.▼
He was a knight from some country
of another.▼
I had fought knights on several other
occasions and had beaten them all.▼
Even though he was a bit tougher,
I was sure I'd defeat him in the end.▼
That's what I thought.▼
But...▼
His strength was beyond me. I may as well
have been using a broomstick to fight.▼
I remember thinking, "What a tiny little
world I've been living in."▼
He crushed me effortlessly, and the wound
he inflicted became this lovely scar.▼
Tethys
I see...▼
Gerik
I was truly frightened. It was the first
time I'd experienced fear as a mercenary.▼
So this knight saw how scared I was
and said, "Go."▼
He didn't kill me.
He let me escape.▼
Tethys
...▼
Gerik
I was humiliated and ashamed.▼
My eyes were finally opened to
my own weakness.▼
It goes without saying I lost every
shred of self-confidance.▼
I still dream about it sometimes.
It wakes me up every time.▼
I've never forgotten that knight.
He thought I was weak and pathetic.▼
Tethys
Chief...▼
Gerik
I was young and stupid.
This scar is my punishment.▼
Tethys
But that knight
spared your life.▼
Because of that, good things and
better things have happened?▼
Gerik
What do you mean, Tethys?▼
Tethys
First of all, Chief, you're alive.▼
If you had died, all the good times
you've had since that day,▼
and all the joy you're sure to have
from this day onward, wouldn't exist.▼
And another thing, because you lived, you
made many friends and you met me.▼
I also don't think that knight thought
you were pathetic.▼
I think he saw a young man with his whole
life ahead of him.▼
That's why he let you go.▼
Gerik
Tethys...▼
Tethys
Yep. I'm sure that's it. So try
thinking about it in a more positive light.▼
Gerik
Ha ha ha. You're right.
I was a lot calmer after that.▼
And while I've had hard times,
there've been far more good times.▼
I guess you could say I owe my success
as a mercenary to that knight.▼
Tethys
Yep.
You've got your knight,▼
and I've got my dancer. Thanks to the
two of them, the two of us are here now.▼
Say, Chief, why don't we become like them?▼
I think we should work at being
inspirations to other people.▼
Gerik
Hm...good idea.▼
Thanks, Tethys.
I think I'll sleep soundly tonight.▼
Tethys
Good.
You know, Chief, I'm really happy.▼
Gerik
Yeah, me, too. I've got a life I enjoy
and good companions.▼
All that and a wonderful woman to love.
Everyone should be so lucky.▼
Tethys
Oh! Chief!▼
Gerik
Whoa!
...▼
Hey now... This is a battlefield.
This isn't the place for that...▼
Tethys
No one's looking...▼
Gerik
Um...
Oh, all right...▼
