Say, Teach. This must be the tower, don't you think? Even for a tower, it's pretty...er, towering.

Claude
It's a remnant of ancient wars... Those thieves certainly found themselves a great place to nest.

I hear their leader, Miklan, is a former noble. It makes sense that he would already know about this place.

Gilbert enters the scene

Several hundred years ago, this was an important stronghold for diffusing invasions from the north.

Gilbert
Back then, this tower was built for both surveillance and defense. It will be difficult to seize it.

Claude
Gilbert, isn't it? You hail from the Kingdom, right? No wonder you're so knowledgeable.
link
Claude
While we're chatting so amicably... Do you mind if I ask some questions?
link
Gilbert
I don't mind. If I can answer them, I will.
link
Claude
Have you ever seen the Lance of Ruin?
link
Gilbert
I have. A long time ago. It was an impressive, if not eerily ominous, weapon to behold.
link
Gilbert
According to Margrave Gautier, Miklan has used the lance to turn the tables on his pursuers.
link
Claude
Is that right? Then those without a Crest can use it as well... Interesting. As far as I knew, that wasn't possible.
link
Claude
And then we have the mythical Sword of the Creator, which can't be used by anyone except Teach, Crest or no Crest.
link
Claude
Maybe you're just that special, Teach. Or maybe there's something you're not telling us. Either way, I expect big things from you in this battle.
link
Claude
Ha! I love a good show of confidence. I'll do my best too. You can count on it.
link
Claude
Are you now? Then why don't you hand over the Sword of the Creator for a bit?
link
Claude
Then again, it would just be a heavy blade in my hands. There's no justice in this world, Teach.

Claude
Ugh, the rain is really coming down now. Let's finish this quickly.
