Dialogue[edit]

Captain Ellen Kiel: On behalf of the Captain's Council and this worthy assembly, welcome, Zephyrites!
Captain Ellen Kiel: I'm sorry Lion's Arch is still a work in progress, but key services have been restored, and the Lionguard are patrolling—
Master of Peace: No need to apologize, Captain. We came to offer our support and to assure you our trade agreement remains intact.
Master of Peace: To start, we're donating a shipment of much-needed supplies, which we have stage here on the docks.
Master of Peace: We're also organizing a series of attractions, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Lion's Arch relief fund.
Captain Ellen Kiel: That's very kind, sir. And much appreciated. we should withdraw to the council chambers to discuss details.
Captain Ellen Kiel: But first, let me introduce you to some of the heroes who prevented the total destruction of our city.
(Captain Ellen Kiel points at you.)
Captain Ellen Kiel: I present to you the team of Kasmeer Meade, Marjory Delaqua, Braham Eirsson, Rox, and... Taimi, I believe?
Taimi: That's right. Taimi and Scruffy. Pleased to met you, Mr. Important Zephyrite. I would love a chance to inspect—
Braham Eirsson: Smile and wave, Taimi. Just smile and wave. Please.
Captain Ellen Kiel: Along with their leader, these brave people have been the city's staunchest and most effective volunteer defenders.
Captain Ellen Kiel: They brought down Scarlet Briar once and for all. And they did so at considerable cost to themselves.
Master of Peace: I am honored to meet you all. In the face of such barbarity, the cause of peace requires formidable defenders.
Master of Peace: I hope you all enjoy the diversions at Labyrinthine Cliffs. I understand there are also amusements in Divinity's Reach.
Captain Ellen Kiel: Aye. Queen Jennah has generously reopened the Crown Pavilion and is also donating the proceeds to Lion's Arch.
Master of Peace: Splendid. We have arranged for transport between the cliffs and the human capital for whoever desires it.
Braham Eirsson: Can we just go straight to Divinity's Reach? Scarlet pretty much ruined the Crown Pavilion for me last time.
Master of Peace: By all means, experience the attractions in any order you choose. Heroes at a festival definitely help draw a crowd.
Captain Ellen Kiel: Hear hear. The council appreciates your participation and the positive impact it creates. Enjoy the festival!
Rox: Well, our mission is to enjoy ourselves and to be seen doing it. How's the leg?
Braham Eirsson: It's fine. And before you ask again, no, I don't want one of your good luck charms.
Rox: You know one of mine won't work. It has to be personal. I wish you'd let me help you pick one out.
Rox: Otherwise, you're going to get injured again. Once misfortune finds you, it doesn't just go away. You have to counter it.
Braham Eirsson: Wolf's tail, is this what they mean by being mothered? I'm suddenly glad mine was never around.
Rox: Somebody's in a sour mood. But I know a cure for crankiness: bashing things to benefit Lion's Arch!
Kasmeer Meade: I like the Zephyrites. And I like seeing your face healed.
Marjory Delaqua: I appreciate the concern, but please, enough with the fretting about my face.
Kasmeer Meade: It was a lot more than a cosmetic injury, and you know it. I thought you were dead. Never scare me like that again.
Taimi: So, do I get to come along this time, or are you going to sideline me in some camp again?
Braham Eirsson: Nobody sidelined you. With all the miasma and Aetherblades and whatnot, we were trying to get people out, not bring them in.
Taimi: You should have known better. I followed Scarlet's progress for months. Did you really think I'd miss her big finish?
Braham Eirsson: Be glad you did. Some of us were there and still didn't get to see it through.
Taimi: That's because I wasn't there! Let that be a lesson to you: never make a move without Taimi and Scruffy.
Braham Eirsson: Yeah, I'll think about that. Anyway, I'm off to the Divinity's Reach attractions. I'll see you around, kid.
Taimi: Are you going to the festival? Braham said I could go.
Marjory Delaqua: Did he, now? From what I've heard, you have a slight problem with the truth where Braham is concerned.
Kasmeer Meade: Jory! Be nice. Of course you can go. Ms. Delaqua is naturally suspicious. Pay her no mind.
Taimi: Oh, I won't. But Braham wants to go to Divinity's Reach, and I'd rather see Zephyrite stuff... Can I go with you?
Marjory Delaqua: Where are your actual legal guardians? Didn't Progeny Protective Services assign someone to you?
Taimi: They know where I am, obviously, but...let's just say I released myself on my own recognizance.

Talking to Taimi:

I'm glad to be on the VIP guest list this time around. I may not have had a direct hand in killing Scarlet, but Scruffy and I did our share leading up to it.

I heard a rumor that you were a fan of Scarlet's.
Hardly. I admired her ingenuity and her work was impressive, but she was way too haphazard in her methodologies. I'm working on a research paper about her, though. Want to hear what I have so far?
Talk more option tango.png
Ready when you are.
Ahem. First thing Scarlet did was combine dredge and Flame Legion as the Molten Alliance. They leveled whole villages, took dozens of captives, and drove hundreds from their homes.
Talk more option tango.png
Go on.
Next she had her Aetherblade pirates assassinate a member of the Captain's Council during Dragon Bash. The idea was to create a vacancy that she could fill with one of her minions.
Talk more option tango.png
Go on.
Then she hijacked the Queen's Jubilee in Divinity's Reach and turned the watchknights into her own mechanical shock troops.
Talk more option tango.png
Go on.
She also tried to kill the queen, stripped a foppish nobleman down to his undies, and threw him in a big cauldron.
Talk more option tango.png
Go on.
She converted a Nightmare Court arbor into an Aetherblade ship factory, and then she got the krait to work with the Nightmare Court.
Talk more option tango.png
Go on.
This Toxic Alliance raised a huge plant tower in Kessex Hills to manufacture a debilitating hallucinogen. It made people's worst fears and memories seem to come to life. Very nasty stuff.
Talk more option tango.png
Go on.
She unleased the giant marionette—I was there for that part—and roused a three-headed jungle wurm. That's when we realized she was looking for ley lines, specifically the one under Lion's Arch.
Talk more option tango.png
Go on.
She hit the Arch with everything she had. The city was almost destroyed and had to be evacuated.
Talk more option tango.png
Go on.
But a brave band of heroes was there to stop her. They didn't include me, even though I helped work out the ley line stuff.
Talk more option tango.png
Go on.
Her attack roused something. Everybody heard that awful noise after Scarlet fell. We just don't know what made it.
Talk more option tango.png
Go on.
Which brings us to the present day. Scarlet's gone, but whatever she set in motion is still a threat.
Talk more option tango.png
Go on.
But as soon as we find that threat, we'll put a stop to it. Because this time, Scruffy and I will be there.
Talk more option tango.png
Go on.
The end. Well, what do you think? It's still a work in progress, and I'd like to add some illustrations and schematics of Scarlet's greatest creations, but I think it's a good start.
Talk back option tango.png
I'm wondering how you like being counted among the heroes Kiel invited.
Talk end option tango.png
You've really done your homework, Taimi. Good job.

Talk more option tango.png
How are you feeling?
Thank you for asking. My legs are good today discomfortwise, but I can't get complacent: my mobility is capricious, changing from one hour to the next. Luckily, Scruffy is always standing by.

Talk end option tango.png
Good-bye.
Talk end option tango.png
You'd be an asset to any team, Taimi.

Talking to Braham:

This could be fun. I mean, the part after we're done here. We beat Scarlet, but do we have to stand around on display like trophies in a hunter's lodge?
Talk more option tango.png
How's the leg?
Did Rox tell you to say that? Never mind—my leg is fine. Scarlet broke my bones, but I'm still on my feet. And I'm getting stronger every day.
Talk end option tango.png
Good-bye.
Talk end option tango.png
Relax, the fun will start soon enough.

Talking to Rox:

Glad to be here with all my teammates. We deserve to bask a bit in the crowd's appreciation after our victory over Scarlet. Plus, they say us being here is good for Lion's Arch.
Talk more option tango.png
Why are you here today?
We're here for the festival to support Lion's Arch, but after that it's back to work. Scarlet may be dead, but she left a lot of questions in her wake. We're going to answer them.
Talk end option tango.png
Good-bye.
Talk more option tango.png
Any word from Rytlock?
Nothing conclusive. He's been pretty terse and distant... Well, more terse and distant than usual. I'm hoping for the best and preparing for the worst.
Talk end option tango.png
Good-bye.
Talk end option tango.png
Good-bye.

Talking to Kas:

I'm glad to see everyone coming together in support of Lion's Arch. Scarlet nearly destroyed the whole city, so it'll take a global effort to bring it back.
Talk more option tango.png
When will you get back to investigating?
We do have a lot to follow up on, don't we? I figure as soon as we're done here and both Jory and Braham are fully healed, we'll be right back in the thick of things.
Talk end option tango.png
Good-bye.
Talk more option tango.png
How are things with you and Jory?
We're very happy. Jory is still a little sore from her injuries, but she's eager to get back to a regular workload. We both are.
Talk end option tango.png
Good-bye.
Talk end option tango.png
Good-bye.

Talking to Jory:

This is a little public for me, but it's for a good cause. It's nice to be out and about with Kas without us having to track down criminals and malcontents.
Talk more option tango.png
What's next for Delaqua Investigations?
You mean besides following up on that roar we heard after Scarlet fell? Healing up, spending time with Kas, and enjoying this festival. Don't worry. I'll be ready for action soon enough.
Talk end option tango.png
Good-bye.
Talk more option tango.png
You and Kas seem to be getting along.
You have a keen eye. I'd say we're happier than two skritt in a jewelry store after hours.
Talk end option tango.png
Good-bye.

Good-bye.
