Story Dialogue
Listen to what Tieve and Arthyen have to say.
Arthyen (NPC Icon).png Arthyen

Th-that is none of your business.

Tieve (NPC Icon).png Tieve

(Tieve just smiles at him.)

Arthyen (NPC Icon).png Arthyen

Wh-why the hell are you smiling at me?

Tieve (NPC Icon).png Tieve

You must be a very close friend of Kirstie's.

Arthyen (NPC Icon).png Arthyen

What?

Tieve (NPC Icon).png Tieve

You're so comfortable when you talk to Kirstie.
But why are you so mean to her?

Arthyen (NPC Icon).png Arthyen

I have no idea what you're talking about.

Tieve (NPC Icon).png Tieve

Did you ever notice, Arthyen? You don't stutter when you talk to
Kirstie.

Arthyen (NPC Icon).png Arthyen

Wh-what?

Tieve (NPC Icon).png Tieve

Not only that, but every time you talk about Kirstie
you use proper words.

Does that mean you and Kirstie are good friends
who have shared secrets and...?

Arthyen (NPC Icon).png Arthyen

Quiet! You don't know anything!
You know nothing about me! Nothing about me!

Ha, do you even know the truth about Kirstie?
Do you know why my father chose her as his successor?

Tieve (NPC Icon).png Tieve

Your father?

Arthyen (NPC Icon).png Arthyen

!!

Tieve (NPC Icon).png Tieve

Your father is Hakam? You're Hakam's son?

Arthyen (NPC Icon).png Arthyen

C-curses!
Forget it! Just forget it, huh?


(Arthyen goes to his room.)

Tieve (NPC Icon).png Tieve

...

Continue talking to Tieve.
Tieve (NPC Icon).png Tieve

I had no idea he was Hakam's son.


To continue the dialogue, the player must ask, "Hakam?"

Tieve (NPC Icon).png Tieve

You don't know who Hakam is? Hakam "Sharpshooter" Kahkrene,
the legendary hunter admired by all throughout the kingdom.

I heard he had a son and a daughter...
That must be his son.

Now that I think about it, I recall hearing Kirstie
mention something about Hakam's tests.

It required collecting three signs that represent prey.
She also said she competed against someone.

It must have been...


(Tieve silently looks at the door to Arthyen's room.)

Tieve (NPC Icon).png Tieve

Excuse me, <Karok>. But do you think you could
collect one of the signs of prey?

I only know the first one. It's the fang of the ruler
of the Perilous Ruins.

I think Arthyen might open up to you if you
collect that, <Karok>.

(Optional: Talk to Tieve again.)
Tieve (NPC Icon).png Tieve

Is it too hard? I think you have what it takes, <Karok>.
Just think of all the adventures you've been through.

Obtain a Gnoll Chieftain Fang from Battle Quest Decisive Battle and take it to Tieve.
Tieve (NPC Icon).png Tieve

You did it!

Tieve (NPC Icon).png Tieve

Now, if you'll just show him what you've brought back...
Ack!


(Arthyen snatches the Gnoll Chieftain's Fang out of your hands.)

Arthyen (NPC Icon).png Arthyen

Wh-where did you get that?
Did you st-steal it from someone?

Tieve (NPC Icon).png Tieve

Oh, Arthyen. <Karok> retrieved that.


(Arthyen glares at you.)

Arthyen (NPC Icon).png Arthyen

How do you know about Hakam's test?
Who...who told you?

You're wasting your time.
Did you...find this on your own?

Then how about the next...?
Kirstie hasn't told you much, huh?

Next is the essence of Argonte, [sic]
who is also known as the queen of wisps.

If you can find that and the rest. then...
N-nevermind. Forget I said anything.

You won't find it anyway.

Tieve (NPC Icon).png Tieve

Excuse me, but...

Arthyen (NPC Icon).png Arthyen

Wh-what?
Do you...Do you have something to say?

Tieve (NPC Icon).png Tieve

I sure do!
Are you hungry?

Arthyen (NPC Icon).png Arthyen

What?

Tieve (NPC Icon).png Tieve

You haven't eaten since morning! Why don't you let me make you
some food. It'll only take a minute.

Arthyen (NPC Icon).png Arthyen

Fo-forget it. I'm not hungry.


(As he's about to return to his room, Arthyen turns and looks back
to Tieve.)

Arthyen (NPC Icon).png Arthyen

I'm... sorry for screaming at you earlier.

Tieve (NPC Icon).png Tieve

(Tieve smiles at him.)
That's alright. I know.

Arthyen (NPC Icon).png Arthyen

....


(Arthyen goes into his room without a word.)
