- The personnel officer stands ready to complete your induction into the ranks.
- You have been sworn into the service of Ul'dah's Grand Company, the Immortal Flames. Mere moments after you are assigned your new rank, Minfilia contacts you by linkpearl and requests your presence. Return to the Waking Sands.
- Back at the Waking Sands, Minfilia announces that Biggs and Wedge, the Garlond Ironworks engineers, are now under the protection of the Scions of the Seventh Dawn. With new allies at your side, set forth once more to fight for the good of all Eorzea.
| Cutscene start.
Are you ready, Forename? Then let us begin.
Forename Surname─you stand poised to enter a sacred trust.
The Flames of Ul'dah burn bright, casting light where there is dark and purging evil wheresoever it lurks.
We are ever ready to meet the nation's enemies in battle, be they beastmen, Garleans, or worse.
And at a word from Flame General Raubahn Aldynn, we would gladly lay down our lives to maintain the peace and prosperity of Ul'dah.
To join our ranks, you must forsake all other nations. Only then may you commit yourself to the fire and be reborn as an Immortal Flame.
Burn as one of us, Forename Surname, and together we shall chase the darkness from Ul'dah!
Will you swear an oath to mark this occasion?
What oath do you swear?
|My sword belongs to Ul'dah!
|What skills I have belong now to Ul'dah!
|I will follow the Flame General unto death!
Spoken like a soldier! You'll do well here.
And Ul'dah will have need of them in the days ahead. The knowledge and experience of well-traveled adventurers are valuable assets.
Hah! The Flame General would lead the van in every battle if he could. 'Twouldn't surprise me if you had the chance to fight by his side one day!
I take it you would rather be judged by your deeds. I respect that. We want a woman of action, not words.
Very well. Your resolve is plain.
Forename Surname─I hereby confer upon you the rank of flame private third class.
Welcome to the Immortal Flames, Private.
May you fight to the last for coin and country.
Can you hear me, Forename? This is Minfilia.
An officer of the Immortal Flames contacted me with news of your enlistment. My congratulations, Private Surname.
I have no doubt that you are eager to make the acquaintance of your new comrades, but I would ask that you pay a visit to your old ones first. Remember: though you are now a Flame of Ul'dah, you are no less a Scion! Pray return to the Waking Sands at your earliest convenience. There are some friends here whom I would very much like you to meet. We shall be waiting!
It seems your presence is required elsewhere.
But before you leave, perhaps you could find a moment to speak with Commander Swift. He is not one to see new recruits go into the field unprepared.
You may now accept the quest “My Little Chocobo (Immortal Flames)” by speaking with Swift.
This quest must be completed in order to proceed to the end of the main scenario for A Realm Reborn.
| Cutscene start.
Welcome back! It seems you wasted no time putting your skills to work!
How do I know? Why, the recruitment officer called to regale me with the tale of your heroics. The pride in his voice was palpable!
We Scions are truly fortunate to have you with us, Forename.
Now, when we last spoke, I said that I wanted you to meet some friends, did I not? Well, I neglected to mention that you have already met.
Tataru—please show them in.
Thanks again for getting us out of that mess. We owe you our lives.
But I don't think we've properly introduced ourselves. I'm Biggs.
A-And I'm... I'm...
God's, man, spit it out, will you!?
W-Wedge, at your service!
I am pleased to say that Biggs and Wedge will be staying with us for a while.
Magitek-driven contraptions such as airships grow ever more vital to the city-states of Eorzea. As a neutral party, it was judged that we Scions should serve as the keepers of this technology.
Of course, for this we needed the knowledge of experts. And so we requested the assistance of Garland Ironworks, who very kindly sent us two of their finest engineers.
Are happy family continues to grow. On behalf of the Scions, I bid you welcome to the Waking Sands!
Like every soul here, I love Eorzea.
And I count myself blessed to have been given this chance to stand with you all and fight for the future of the realm.
Never have I known such fulfillment—such happiness.
