Return to Research
Taimi: Oh, hey. Don't mind us, Commander. Just setting up a lab for important Elder Dragon research. Fate of the whole world depends on it. No big deal.
Talk more option tango.png Sure thing.
Gorrik: Is this really the best location?
Talk more option tango.png (shrug)
Taimi: If we're investigating the dragon cycle, we should be near a DRAGON, right? There aren't too many Elder Dragons left in the world, so Aurene's our only bet.
Talk more option tango.png Agreed.
Gorrik: (sigh) I guess you're right. But we could have a more robust laboratory at Rata Sum.
Talk more option tango.png Anything I can do to help?
Gorrik: We can always use more data to isolate commonalities among the Elder Dragons. Find a pattern. You've fought them for years, Commander. Inside your memories could be clues to the dragon cycle.
Talk more option tango.png My memories?
Taimi: Ooh, do we get to poke around in the commander's head?
Talk more option tango.png Leave my head alone.
Gorrik: I was thinking we use the scrying pool to help the commander relive the memories of these past years.
Talk more option tango.png Hmm...
Taimi: That's ingenious, Gorrik.
Talk more option tango.png She's not wrong.
Gorrik: Oh. Well. Thank you.
Talk end option tango.png Time to relive some old memories, I guess.
Talk end option tango.png I have to go.
Studying Scarlet
Taimi: Oh, Commander. Thanks for all your help with the whole...recollecting your memories thing. It's been illuminating. We've got lots more data than we'd have otherwise.
Talk more option tango.png Dare I ask...
Gorrik: I'm learning a lot about you before we met. Scarlet affected so many lives across Tyria.
Talk more option tango.png (nod)
Taimi: She did. (sigh) Don't meet your heroes. Caithe's also grown a lot since then, huh? But I guess we wouldn't have Aurene if she hadn't taken the egg.
Talk more option tango.png True.
Gorrik: I noticed Phlunt didn't change at all.
Talk more option tango.png You say that like it's a surprise.
Taimi: I KNOW, right? He's the worst. Anyway, Commander, keep at it.
Talk end option tango.png Will do.
Peer Review
Gorrik: You've been busy, Commander. Loads more data; tons for Taimi and me to sift through.
Taimi: Speaking of busy, I heard someone other than us has been looking into dragon research.
Taimi: Rata Novus, the Crucible of Eternity, the Durmand Priory...
Taimi: Someone's snooping!
Gorrik: Science is the universal exploration of knowledge—and open to everyone, Taimi.
Taimi: Yeah, well, I don't like it. It feels...sneaky!
Gorrik: We're holed up in a makeshift lab in the Eye of the North, miles from civilization.
Taimi: This isn't makeshift! It's a very respectable, HUMBLE lab—thank you very much.
Taimi: If this place is good enough for Aurene, it's good enough for us.
Gorrik: We're in the company of Snargle Goldclaw...
Taimi: I'm not mad about it.
Gorrik: I'm getting back to work, Commander.
Parallel Analysis
Taimi: Commander! Can you believe the nerve of some people?
Taimi: Someone broke into my lab at Rata Sum! Made a huge mess. Huh, you think it was Phlunt again? I bet it was Phlunt again.
Gorrik: Wait, you didn't tell me this.
Taimi: Because I didn't want you to worry. See? Eye of the North was the right choice for the lab.
Taimi: If I'd been working out of MY lab, I could've been kidnapped. Or worse.
Gorrik: Don't say that. That's horrible.
Taimi: I'm fine, Gorrik. I know you'd protect me if anyone came after us here.
Taimi: Well, you and Aurene. Anyway, Commander, thanks for the new data.
Gorrik: Who do you think Kralkatorrik was referring to as "Mother"?
Taimi: Probably his mother.
Gorrik: Do Elder Dragons have mothers?
Taimi: Aurene does.
End Conjecture
Taimi: You did it, Commander. All your adventures from these past years! Quite a trip down memory lane.
Gorrik: The deaths of Primordus and Jormag released an unprecedented amount of dragon magic into the ecosystem.
Gorrik: And if there is another Elder Dragon-
Taimi: Which we don't know for sure-
Gorrik: Right. But if there is... Wherever he must be pretty bad.
Taimi: The most popular theory is the water dragon's somewhere in the depths of the Unending Ocean.
Gorrik: Not exactly a narrow search range.
Taimi: It's a hypothesis with no empirical basis.
Taimi: It's clear to me that we need to-
Taimi: Ah!
Gorrik: Taimi?
Taimi: I-I'm fine. It'll pass.
Gorrik: You need time off. We both need some.
Taimi: There's too much to do! We don't fully understand the ramifications of the dragon cycle yet.
Taimi: The other shoe can drop at any moment. We have to be ready.
Gorrik: I know. Just dont...push yourself too hard.
