So that is what transpired...

Rhea
This is, indeed, the Chalice of Beginnings. It matches the descriptions in the few records of it that remain.

Yuri
Don't beat around the bush. What's our punishment?
link
Rhea
You removed a most sacred treasure. Truly it is my obligation to mete out punishment for that transgression. However...
link
Rhea
You also helped the church locate a valuable artifact. In light of this good deed, I shall forgive the bad one.
link
Rhea
I do wonder...
link
What's on your mind?
link
Rhea
I am wondering whether your presence had anything to do with the artifact's unbinding, Professor.
link
Rhea
As per the church chronicles, the Four Apostles secured the chalice with powerful magic.
link
Rhea
The only way to release the chalice is by using the four Crests passed down through their bloodlines.
link
Rhea
However, given the special power you possess, perhaps you were able to unlock it yourself.
link
Rhea
There is no knowing at present. For the time being, I will keep the chalice somewhere safe.
link
Rhea
As for Aelfric, I assure you that the knights will find and return him in due time.
link
Rhea
I consider him to be one of my many children, after all. I will not allow harm to befall him.

Constance
Lady Rhea, might I ask a moment of your time? We cannot be expected to give up our endeavor!
link
Constance
The enemy stated most clearly that if the knights are involved, our dear Aelfric is finished!
link
Constance
We owe him so much. If there is any possibility that his life is in danger, the risk is too great to chance!
link
Hapi
True. The knights are strong and all, but they're liable to get him killed.
link
Hapi
We can take care of it. With Chatterbox's help.
link
Balthus
Our professor has the strength of a hundred knights, or about one and a half of me. We've got this. How about it, Rhea?
link
Balthus
We've been through too damned much to get here. Leave the chalice and Aelfric to us. You won't regret it.
link
Yuri
Lady Rhea... Please.
link
Rhea
Hmm...
link
Rhea
If you consent to join your power with theirs... Yes, perhaps there is hope.
link
Rhea
If you join your power with theirs... Yes, perhaps there is hope.
link
Rhea
As you wish. I shall entrust you with the chalice.
link
Knight of Seiros
Your Grace, the chalice is a legendary treasure!
link
Knight of Seiros
You can't just hand it over to those underground—
link
Rhea
That is quite enough. There is no cause to worry, I assure you. There will be no further discussion on the matter.
link
Rhea
Even if we lost hold of the chalice, it would be impossible for the thieves to make use of it.
link
Rhea
Though it was created to return a life that was lost, I doubt that anyone alive knows how to accomplish that feat.
link
Rhea
If someone were to successfully replicate the ritual... it would perhaps be the work of fate.
