Journal detail hr1 04.png Description
Gaius is ready to discuss the samples you brought.
Journal detail hr1 01.png Objectives

  • Gaius is ready to discuss the samples you brought.
  • Informing Gaius that you delivered the samples on behalf of Tataru Taru's Boutique, he agrees to consider the flourishing shop's wares among the other prospective suppliers for Werlyt's military. That business being settled, the emotional state of Valens's former wards─the boys from earlier─weighs heavily upon Gaius's mind, and he would have you speak with them to allay their lingering unease.
  • The boys are relieved to hear that the man who approached them was not Valens, but in fact a former pilus acting as his body double, and are further heartened by the news of his arrest and the retrieval of the G-Savior Mark II. With their minds now truly at ease, their thoughts turn to Allie, who has been taking care of them at the orphanage. As a show of their appreciation to her, they hope to see Allie's dream realized by hiring an artist to render a portrait of her together with her sole remaining family member─her father. While they set about finding a portraitist, you agree to speak with Gaius and Allie to tell them of this undertaking.
  • Though Gaius is struck by the boys' thoughtfulness, Allie appears conflicted, as her true wish was to have a portrait taken with not only her father, but with her siblings as well. Yet she would not reject the children's kindness out of hand, and so she agrees to meet everyone at the lookout.
  • As Gaius and Allie pose for the portraitist, the boys look on with concern, asking you and Avilina whether this portrait is truly fulfilling her wish. Avilina assures them that it is, before revealing a synthetic auracite device. Upon activating it, the contraption emits projections of Milisandia, Ricon, Rex, and Alfonse beside Gaius and Allie, who are taken aback by the unexpected but welcome sight of these visions. Allie's joy is clear for all to see, as a rare smile plays across her lips.
  • The boys are delighted that they were able to fulfill Allie's wish, and to thank you for aiding them in the endeavor, they present you with a beautiful pink seashell. Your work in Terncliff thus concluded, you decide now may be the right time to return to Mehdjina in Old Sharlayan, and see if she thinks the gift you received will make a worthy addition to Tataru's memento.
  • After regaling Mehdjina with your exploits in Terncliff, you show her the pair of shells you received as a gift. She quickly recognizes them as vaunted rose shells of Werlyt, famed ornaments often used in expensive jewelry─and treasures that she believes will make a colorful complement to Tataru's necklace. Thanking you for your efforts, she bids you farewell until your expertise is needed once more.

Edit Forever in Our Hearts's Dialogue

Now, could you enlighten me as to why you came to deliver clothing samples?

An enterprise founded by a former Scion, with you acting on their behalf.

Clearly, the equipment is of fine make. I and my associates will give it all due consideration.

Still, I confess I am rather surprised to see the champion of Eorzea doing so mundane a task as delivery. This Tataru must command a great deal of respect.
What will you say?
An adventurer takes everything in stride─deliveries, skyfishing, traveling to the farthest edges of the universe... 'Tis unwise to refuse the coinkeeper of the Scions.
I see, the spirit of an adventurer. Perhaps I should learn from your example.
To hear you speak so, she is clearly not one to be trifled with. I shall heed your words should I ever meet her at the negotiating table.

In any case, I believe your errand here is complete. But if you are willing, there is another I would ask of you.

The boys are doubtless still unnerved by what happened earlier. I would assuage their concerns─make it clear to them that Valens is well and truly gone. But it cannot come from a Garlean like myself. Could I prevail upon you to tell them in my stead?

Thank you. I believe you will find the boys near the storage area. Pray give them the good news.
Quest Accepted
Those children have no doubt come to fear Garleans. My presence at this time would likely cause them undue distress.
The children were so anxious, I thought it would be best if I stayed by their side.
I hope you can forgive us, mister. We're really sorry about what we did. We shouldn't have snuck into the hangar...or told him how to, either.
Did you really fly the G-Warrior!? Wow, I hope you can take me with you one day!
Player7 Icon.png Cutscene start.
Oh, you're back! Please, mister, you have to tell us what happened!
So you got the machine back... You're amazing, mister!
If that man was just pretending to be Valens, does that mean the real one's not coming back?
Yes. He's gone for good, my dear. Pray remove any thought of that wretched man from your mind.

Th-Thank goodness...

Even now, I see his face in my dreams every night. I'm always so afraid...

I-I want to tell Miss Allie, but I know I mustn't...she's been through so much.
You haven't heard? Allie's been helping out at the orphanage.

She's been taking really good care of us!

But we don't want to worry her... Could you keep what happened a secret?

We heard that Valens did awful things to Miss Allie too... Please, we don't want to bring back all those horrible memories!

Thank you, mister! You're the best!

Hmm... Say, you know Miss Allie, right? Do you think you could help us? We want to make her wish come true for being so kind to us!

We heard that she dreams of having a portrait of her family. We think it'd be nice if somebody painted one for her!
But... Besides Mister Gaius, her family is gone...
What will you say?
We could describe her siblings to the artist. Prehaps we could somehow manifest their likeness for the artist to see...
...Yes, that could work.
Leave it to me─I may have just the thing!
Really!? Then we'll fetch the painter!
Could you tell Miss Allie and Mister Gaius to meet us at the lookout?
Then I shall take a leaf out of Nero's book and prepare a surprise of my own. Pray meet me at the lookout once you've spoken with Gaius and Allie.
Player7 Icon.png Cutscene end.

Have you spoken with the children?

Though Valens's atrocities left scars that may never heal, his victims will be relieved by the news.

And it is heartening that they should wish to perform such an act of kindness for Allie.

Very well, I will do as they ask. I shall meet everyone there shortly.


Forgive me, I didn't know you'd be visiting... What brings you here?

The children said they wanted to do that for me? That's very kind of them. While it's true I've spoken of this on occasion...

...A family portrait just wouldn't feel right without Milisandia, Ricon, Rex, and Alfonse.

Still, it wouldn't be right to refuse. They're only trying to cheer me up, after all. I'd best go and meet them at the lookout.

They are on their way then? Perfect. I have made my own preparations in the meantime.

All that remains is to await our models and our esteemed portraitist.
Player7 Icon.png Cutscene start.
Gaius, Allie. Would you mind standing over there?

Make sure you draw her nice and pretty, mister!

...Did we do it right? Are we making her dream come true?
Oh yes, I think you've made her very happy. But we cannot ignore the fact that Gaius is not her only family...

I know, but...but everyone else is gone...

I wish we could've done more for her...
Don't worry, child. As I mentioned, I prepared a little surprise of my own...
Look, Allie...
They're all here...
While I understand your surprise, you'll have to sit still for the portrait, I'm afraid.
...Thank you.
Player7 Icon.png Cutscene end.
Words do not come easily at times such as these, but know that you have my sincerest gratitude.
To see Milisandia again, alongside her loved ones... I can't tell you how much this means to me.
This truly is a dream come true... I will treasure this portrait for the rest of my days.

We're so happy Miss Allie's wish came true! Thanks for helping us, mister!

We wanted to thank you too, so we got you a gift!

We found it on the beach with our friends at the orphanage. It's our greatest treasure─a pretty pink shell!

We'd better go now, but we hope you like it!
Mehdjina may find the shell a beautiful complement to Tataru's memento. Return to Old Sharlayan and show it to her.

Welcome back, Forename! How did you fare with Gaius in Terncliff?

My goodness! Not only did you help him recapture stolen warmachina, but you even helped fulfill his daughter's dream?

I'm not sure whether I should be in awe of your ability to solve problems, or offer my commiserations for encountering so many in the first place. Mayhap that is simply the lot of a distinguished adventurer.

Which reminds me, were you able to procure a new adornment for Mistress Tataru's necklace?

My, it's simply remarkable! This must be one of the fabled rose shells of Werlyt. I hear they're both rare and beautiful, making them the perfect choice for various types of jewelry.

If we polish it up and make a few refinements, I am certain we can incorporate it into the necklace!

Ah, there's something else in this package...a rolled canvas of a portrait, it looks like. It must be a gift for you.

Owing to your kind assistance, I believe we are in the running for forging a contract with Werlyt's interim government. There could be no more desirable result for the boutique. You have my heartfelt thanks, Forename!
