Your assistance in this incident with Acheron has proved most essential. Consider me in your debt.
link
Lorenz
Thanks to you, the Alliance was able to nip this internal conflict in the bud.
link
What will become of Acheron?
link
Lorenz
He has written a pledge to my father, swearing never to cause trouble about the border again.
link
Lorenz
Of course, he is hardly the type to bind himself in good faith to anything written on paper.
link
Lorenz
But Acheron has many connections, both in the Alliance and in the Empire.
link
Lorenz
To remove him entirely would cause more conflict. We will just have to watch him closely for now.
link
Lorenz
Indeed. I do plan to eliminate him eventually, however. He is nothing but trouble.
link
Lorenz
Incidentally, there was one other benefit to embarking upon this errand.
link
Lorenz
Have a look at this.
link
Lorenz
The magic staff, Thyrsus. A Relic passed down through House Gloucester for generations.
link
Lorenz
It seems my father has finally recognized my ability.
link
Lorenz
Apparently he had been considering entrusting this Relic to me for some time.
link
Lorenz
He has had precious few opportunities to take to the field of battle personally, of late.
link
Lorenz
Doubtless by giving this to me, he intends to send the message that I must work even harder.
link
Lorenz
I will certainly continue to do my utmost. But I am by no means completely subservient to his will.
link
Lorenz
I would not go so far as that. But my father seldom thinks beyond the immediate benefit of our house.
link
Lorenz
While that is important, I prefer to consider the greater good when I make decisions.
link
Lorenz
I believe that is a noble's duty.
link
Lorenz
Now, for the time being, may I trust you to decide how we may best make use of Thyrsus?
link
Lorenz
For the moment, I think you are in the best position to apply it to the betterment of all Fódlan.
link
Are you sure?
link
Lorenz
To be quite honest, I am not certain I feel ready to decide the fate of a Relic on my own just yet.
link
Lorenz
Do me this favor, Professor, and I will be grateful. Now, to celebrate! Allow me to treat you to tea.
