Open world[edit]

Braham Eirsson: Okay. Whoever took Jhavi and Almorra would've left tracks. So...we just need to look for those.
If asura:
<Character name>: You seem distracted. Is something wrong?
Braham Eirrson: No, I'm fine. I'm fine. Don't need to analyze me...
If charr:
<Character name>: You seem distracted. Is something wrong?
Braham Eirsson: Yeah. Yeah. I'm fine.
If sylvari:
<Character name>: Are you well? You seem distracted.
Braham Eirsson: Yeah. Yeah. I'm fine.
<Character name>: Are you okay? You seem distracted.
Braham Eirsson: Yeah. Yeah. I'm fine.
At the first clue
Braham Eirsson: Just like I thought. Svanir tracks. And the same scuff marks we saw in the keep. They had prisoners.
<Character name>: Might be your guildmates.
Braham Eirsson: If I hadn't abandoned them at the keep...
<Character name>: We're here now. That's what matters.
At the second clue
Braham Eirsson: Snow's all churned here. One of the prisoners tried to put up a fight.
At the third clue
<Character name>: Braham, look. That lens we picked up is reacting to this area.
If norn who follows Raven:
Braham Eirsson: Raven...don't you follow him, too? Maybe he's trying to show you something. Let's look around.
Braham Eirsson: Raven...he's trying to show us something. Let's look around.
Using the Raven Lens special action skill at the fourth clue prompts the first memory
Warmaster Jhavi Jorasdottir: You were one of us. And you killed them all...
General Almorra Soulkeeper: They're cowards. Think they're playing for the winning side. But they'll get theirs in the end, just like Kralkatorrik.
Torrin: Olar, please. At least let me kill the mouthy one.
Olar: No. Jormag wants them both alive. For now.
Braham Eirsson: They... How is this... They betrayed Almorra and Jhavi...killed all those people...
<Character name>: Who are they?
Braham Eirsson: ...My guildmates.
Unknown: (incoherent whisper)
Braham Eirsson: My fault? If I had been there...
Unknown: So much pain... He needs rest...
<Character name>: If you need some time to—
Braham Eirsson: No. No. Raven is showing us how to find them. We need to keep going. We...we need to fix this.
At the sixth clue
Unknown: You're safe here.
Unknown: Let me help you...
Braham Eirsson: They kept going west. Where were my... Where were the...the traitors taking them?
Using the Raven Lens special action skill at the seventh clue, revealing the second memory
(While Almorra and Jhavi discuss their options, Olar and Torrin kill a charr Vigil member.)
Warmaster Jhavi Jorasdottir: This was just a patrol... They didn't need to die... Why are they doing this? Why is this happening?
General Almorra Soulkeeper: Listen to me. When we start moving again, I'll create a distraction. You run.
General Almorra Soulkeeper: They took our comms, but if you make it back to the keep, call the Pact commander.
Warmaster Jhavi Jorasdottir: Let me do it. You go. The Vigil needs you—
General Almorra Soulkeeper: That's an order, Jhavi.
Braham Eirsson: Olar has a scar on his left shoulder. Threw himself in front of a Svanir sword to protect my flank.
Braham Eirsson: And now he's...he's just slaughtering...
Unknown: (incoherent whisper)
Braham Eirsson: I should have been there. I should have been there...
<Character name>: I know this isn't easy. But Almorra and Jhavi might've escaped. We have to see what happens next.
Unknown: Rest...
Braham Eirsson: I just want... I'm so tired.
<Character name>: They need us, Braham. We can find them, but we have to work together.
At the ninth objective
Braham Eirsson: Fewer tracks here... They lost someone.
<Character name>: Jhavi got away?
Braham Eirsson: Or they... Yeah. Maybe Jhavi got away.
At the tenth objective, using the Raven Lens to reveal the third memory
Olar: Nice trick you tried to pull back there. Raven would be proud.
Warmaster Jhavi Jorasdottir: Where did you take her?
Olar: Your general has killed her last dragon.
Torrin: What do we do with this one?
Olar: The forest. There's a cave where Jormag can speak to her in peace.
Warmaster Jhavi Jorasdottir: them the way...
Braham Eirsson: A cave in this forest... That's where Jhavi is. And the lens—must be reacting because of her. But what about Almorra?
Unknown: Let me help you...
<Character name>: Stop.
Braham Eirsson: Commander?
Unknown: Let me in...
<Character name>: I said stop!
Braham Eirsson: hear it too, don't you? That voice.
If norn:
<Character name>: It's not Raven.
If sylvari:
<Character name>: Reminds me of Mordremoth...but different.
<Character name>: It isn't Raven, is it.
Braham Eirsson: Come on. We're almost there. It's just like you said: Jhavi needs us.

In the instance[edit]

Approaching the Raven magic seal
<Character name>: Your guildmates... I understand if you want me to handle this by myself.
If norn:
Braham Eirsson: The blood they spilled is on all our hands. We're norn. We both need to be there.
Braham Eirsson: The blood they spilled is on my people's hands. I'm norn. It's my duty to make them answer for it.
Braham Eirsson: There's more Raven magic here. Try the lens.

Interacting with the Raven Lock opens the seal.

Inside the cave
Warmaster Jhavi Jorasdottir: ...Out of my head! Get out!
Braham Eirsson: You hear that?
Approaching Jhavi and the two traitorous norn
Olar: Braham? Oh, I should've known. Can't resist playing the hero, can you?
Warmaster Jhavi Jorasdottir: Wait... Braham Vowbreaker? Raven led you here?
Braham Eirsson: Vowbreaker?
Olar: Oh didn't you know? That's what they call you in the Shiverpeaks now.
Braham Eirsson: I...I own my mistakes, Olar. Now it's your turn.
Braham Eirsson: I saw what you did. The Vigil were your people!
Olar: No, THESE are my people. The Sons of Svanir were there when you weren't! Showed us the truth about Jormag!
Braham Eirsson: No... No, this isn't—
Olar: Brothers, take them down!
After defeating the other Svanir
Olar: You abandoned us!
Braham Eirsson: Olar, please! We fought together, side by side. Don't do this!
Olar: I was a child then. Now I understand Jormag isn't the real enemy. The Dragon killers are!
Olar: You won't leave us again, Braham. You're going to stay forever.
Freeing and speaking with Jhavi, who begins to walk with Braham out of the cave
Warmaster Jhavi Jorasdottir: Almorra. Did you find her?
<Character name>: Not yet. But she was the one who called us here, so she must be alive out there.
Warmaster Jhavi Jorasdottir: Called you? But...the Svanir took our comms. "So we couldn't call the Dragon killer," they said.
Warmaster Jhavi Jorasdottir: Our own people... All the male norn. They turned on us. Let the Sons of Svanir through our gate while we slept. Jormag—
Braham Eirsson: Whispered to them. Just like... Just like we're being whispered to now.
<Character name>: That voice...the one in the back of my mind. It's Jormag.
Braham Eirsson: Jhavi, what did Jormag say to you?
Warmaster Jhavi Jorasdottir: That...that Svanir's blood runs through me. That it's my legend to complete his work. Help the fraenir take the region.
Braham Eirsson: Your name is Jorasdottir. Your legend is to finish her work, not his.
If norn:
<Character name>: Fraenir. I've heard that word before. It's a...rank of some kind.
<Character name>: Jhavi, what is the fraenir?
Warmaster Jhavi Jorasdottir: The Sons of Svanir's highest officer. Chosen by Jormag. The blizzard, the attack on the keep... It's all his doing.
Warmaster Jhavi Jorasdottir: They've had this region in a stranglehold since Almorra arrived. The attacks never stop.
Warmaster Jhavi Jorasdottir: And then there are the disappearances. If this goes on any longer, I don't know how we're going to survive.
Braham Eirsson: Well...okay, the fraenir is the one leading the attacks, right? We stop him, we stop the Sons of Svanir.
Warmaster Jhavi Jorasdottir: Exactly. But he's protected in the Raven Sanctum. Somehow he's using stolen Raven magic to seal himself inside.
Warmaster Jhavi Jorasdottir: Before the attack, Almorra and I were working on a way to enter the sanctum using ancient Raven lenses.
Braham Eirsson: Like the one that led us here.
Warmaster Jhavi Jorasdottir: Raven lenses reveal the spirit essence we leave behind—but it only works on norn. I used that to guide you here, to me.
Warmaster Jhavi Jorasdottir: We need two lenses to enter the sanctum. The one you found was mine. The other one... Almorra has it.
Braham Eirsson: We gotta find her, Commander. If the Svanir have her, she's in danger. I'll search their camps.
<Character name>: Rytlock, Jory, I found Jhavi. But we need to form a search party for Almorra. Quickly.
Rytlock Brimstone: Cre and I can check prisoner camps.
Marjory Delaqua: I think I discovered where Vigil soldiers are disappearing to. I'll keep following their trail—it may lead to Almorra.
<Character name>: Good idea. I'll be there soon to help. And be careful, all of you. If you hear anything strange, don't listen.
Warmaster Jhavi Jorasdottir: Bring her back, Commander. Please.
Optionally talking to Jhavi
Warmaster Jhavi Jorasdottir: I wasn't sure if asking for Raven's help would work. But finding the lens...following the trail was his doing. He sees what Jormag is doing to the Marches.
Talk more option tango.png The massacre at the keep...what happened?
Those traitors waited till nighttime. Slit our sentries' throats. Let the Sons of Svanir through the gates and killed my people in their sleep like cowards. We never had a chance.
Talk more option tango.png But they took you and Almorra alive.
They said Jormag wanted to talk to us. I don't know where they took her. But whatever Jormag had to say to her...I'll bet she gave an earful in return.
Talk end option tango.png I'll find her. You have my word.
Talk back option tango.png I have another question. (back to the start)
Talk end option tango.png I'll find Almorra, and they'll see justice.
Talk back option tango.png I have another question. (back to the start)
Talk more option tango.png The Raven lens showed us your past. What is it, exactly?
My theory is that they were created by Raven as weapons against Jormag's minions back when we lived much further north. Those Raven shrines you see in the wilds...they react to the lens.
Talk more option tango.png The massacre at the keep...what happened? (same as above)
Talk end option tango.png I should look for Almorra. I'll see you back at the keep.
Talk back option tango.png I have another question. (back to the start)
Talk end option tango.png I'll find Almorra, and we'll stop Jormag. Together.
