I shall do as Master Fourchenault commanded and compile our research before sending it before the Forum. Paperwork of all manner has been my forte since before I was even a student.
What will you say?
Recount tales of Abyssos and beyond. How goes the investigation?
Player7 Icon.png Cutscene start.

Forename, may I have a moment? If you would be so inclined, I would very much like to hear the story of your battles in Abyssos and Tartaros.

While I have no difficulty producing reports for the Forum with a general summation of events, I could use some help with the finer details. For the record, you know.
For the record, you say? Come now, be honest and admit it's to sate your own curiosity. I've seen the tomes you've left scattered about the laboratory─bestiaries of creatures both real and imagined.

I will not─and I daresay, should not─deny an intellectual stake in the matter. But surely Forename will understand that a thorough recounting will help Professor Claudien's research as well. Now then, whenever you're ready.

...Fascinating. As you say, the savage creation you encountered in Abyssos bears more than a few similarities to the Carbuncle. Could it be that the arcane entities we know now had their origins in ancient times?

Just as curious was your story of the keyward who was melded with a tree of legend... Where do the limits of the hemitheos creation process lie, I wonder? And how do such creatures even survive, once melded?
As expected, you cannot help yourself from asking ever more questions─what purpose would such knowledge serve?
Oh, Ruissenaud, one day you too shall develop the keen instincts of a researcher. Then you shall understand that it is impossible not to wonder, once the spark of imagination has been struck!

Forename's stories have already set several theories stirring in my mind, and I feel even more bubbling just under the surface.

Take Hephaistos for example. It would not be a great leap to assume that he studied at length the regenerative and death-defying properties of the Phoenix. And that is just the tip of the proverbial berg!
You are free to exercise your imagination all you like, but─need I remind you─these reports are meant to be submitted to Master Fourchenault himself. I implore you to exercise restraint.

...Professor Claudien would have encouraged me, you know.

He thrives on theories and imagination. But I do understand your point, Ruissenaud─if I were to submit such a report to Master Fourchenault, I would soon thereafter be forced to write a formal apology.
What will you say?
Fourchenault is more open to wild theories than you think. He doesn't look like someone you'd want to make mad.
That very well may be! An academic does not achieve the station he has without a curiosity as deep as the aetherial sea itself.
I was hoping you would be more supportive, Forename... Very well, I shall include only conjecture that is directly relevant to the contents of the report.

Now I should set ink to paper, and let the wonder of theory guide my hand. Within reason, of course.

Yet I cannot help but dream ever larger─there are no bounds to what the mind can imagine! And if there are, let us both strive to find them, Forename!

Player7 Icon.png Cutscene end.
Sometimes I think I should have stopped Professor Claudien from departing on his journey. Even if I had to resort to force...

He is a brilliant researcher, to be sure, but at times like these I am reminded of how difficult he can be.

While he is usually calm and collected in his methods, once he catches scent of a new discovery, he quite loses sight of his surroundings. And his opinions often become...intractable.

I am sure that he departed upon his journey in high spirits, but I am afraid that his extreme focus might have made him throw caution to the winds.

Even so, he is not one to falter in the face of unforeseen obstacles. Though I admit it becomes ever more difficult as the moments pass by, I must have faith that he will return unharmed...
