Gatherer of Light (II) - Qufim Island Seed Mandragora: The Seed Crystal...its echo...they did not arise from nothingness... They were drawn to this world...by a song... A song...that rings out ceaselessly...from within a mother's heart...
Seed Mandragora: Mortals...do you not see? You are dealing...with powers...far beyond your control.
???: The "Seed Crystal," eh? So that oversized slab of rock has a name.
Aldo: I had a hunch that following that crystal would lead me somewhere. Looks like this is where things start to get interesting...
Aldo: Well met, Player Name. I see you've still got a nose for trouble.
Aldo: Now what in Altana's good name is going on here?
Aldo: And what were those overgrown bean sprouts blathering on about? A song within a mother's heart?
Young Aldo: Ah. So you must be Aldo...
Young Aldo: Yes... You have your sister's eyes.
Aldo: Boy! What did you say just now!?
Young Aldo: Finally we meet...Uncle.
Young Aldo: Mother named me Aldo too. After you...
Aldo: Just one minute, kid! Are you saying you mom is my sister!?
Aldo: That you're...Emeline's son?
Aldo: My sister...still lives!?
Young Aldo: I'm afraid we've no time to celebrate this family reunion now, Uncle.
Young Aldo: We must unearth and release the antiphon...and quickly.
Young Aldo: Before the ancient echo reduces our world to so many pieces of shattered crystal.
Young Aldo: Luckily, you just may prove to be the key to it all...Uncle Aldo.
Young Aldo: Yes. You just might be able to break the resonance between Mother and the Seed Crystal.
Aldo: What nonsense is this!? What does Emeline have to do with this so-called Seed Crystal!? You expect me to believe this childish fantasy?
Young Aldo: A fantasy? I think not, Uncle. No...there can be no doubt.
Young Aldo: Can you not hear it? A prayer of life... Yes, this world must be saved...no matter how great the cost.
Young Aldo: If you wish to save Mother...
Young Aldo: If you care for the sister you once knew, make haste for Fei'Yin.
Young Aldo: The servants of the Seed Crystal will not hesitate to put their dark schemes into action.
Aldo: Hold it right there, boy!
Aldo: I must know...where is Emeline!? What's been done to her!? Young Aldo: Oh, you'll have your answers soon enough...my dear Uncle.
Aldo: What the--? Cursed brat! Seed Crystals and ancient songs!? This is all patently absurd!
Aldo: But if the boy speaks true, and my sister truly still lives...
Aldo: For all these years, I thought I had lost you forever that day. By the goddess, I won't let them take you from me again. Emeline...
Aldo: Fei'Yin, he said? I'd best be on my way.
Aldo: And Player Name, I trust you to keep quiet about what you've seen here today.
Aldo: If these unfounded claims of the world's end reached the three nations, we'd have nothing short of mass panic on our hands.
Aldo: I intend to uncover what information I can, and suggest you do the same. But until we find out if the boy's words hold water, we're not to speak a word of this--not even to one another.
Aldo: Until we meet again...
