So this is where your father lived...
link
Sothis
Hm? Are you still crying?
link
Sothis
If turning back the hands of time was not enough to save his life, you must accept what came to pass was fate.
link
Sothis
Control yourself. Though Jeralt's death was at the hands of wicked ones, a fate is still a fate.

Sothis
Agreed. We cannot let the wicked ones run free.

Sothis
Oh! Your father said to look for something here. He must have been referring to whatever is behind that bookcase there...
link
Sothis
Your father's diary... Huh, his handwriting is prettier than his face would suggest.
link
Sothis
Well, well! These entries here are from before your birth. He seems to have been writing this for quite some time.
link
Sothis
Hm? Ah... Read that part there. Horsebow Moon, Year 1159...
link
Day 20 of the Horsebow Moon. All is cloudy. I can't believe she's dead.
link
Lady Rhea said she died during childbirth. But is that the truth?
link
And still, the child she traded her life for doesn't make a sound. Didn't even cry at birth.
link
Day 25 of the Horsebow Moon. It's raining. The baby doesn't laugh or cry. Not ever.
link
Lady Rhea says not to worry, but a baby that doesn't cry...isn't natural.
link
I had a doctor examine the child in secret. He said the pulse is normal, but there's no heartbeat. No heartbeat!
link
Day 2 of the Wyvern Moon. Sunny. I feel I must take the child and leave.
link
But the church is always watching us... I don't know what Lady Rhea has planned.
link
I used to think the world of Lady Rhea. Now I'm terrified of her.
link
Day 8 of the Wyvern Moon. More rain. I used the fire that broke out last night to fake the child's death.
link
Lady Rhea is in a state over the news. But I can't change what I've done. I've got to take the child and leave...
link
Sothis
Well now! That baby must be you! That means... Hm? Someone is approaching us.
link
Alois enters the scene
link
Alois
Ah... Here you are.
link
Alois
To think that Captain...that Jeralt would meet his end like that.
link
Alois
I hope you know that you were the most important thing in the world to him.

Alois
He wasn't the most emotional guy. I'm sure expressing his affection wouldn't have come naturally to him.
link
Alois
After what's happened, it's up to me now. I, Alois, swear to protect you in the captain's stead.
link
Alois
Sorry. This isn't the time for my blathering.
link
Alois
Lady Rhea is looking for you. I came to tell you that. I'll take my leave now.
link
Alois leaves the scene
link
Sothis
This book is filled with secrets yet unknown. We must return another time to read the rest.
link
Sothis
Oh, but I have at least figured one thing out.
link
Sothis
I know now why our fates are intertwined...
