  • Kurenai is staring intently at you.
  • Kurenai tells you of how, a few days prior, a man dressed from head to toe in black appeared at the palace. He claimed he had come to bestow divine protection upon her sister, the Ruby Princess, but instead called forth a flood of voidsent beasts and spirits, which possessed the Sui–no–Sato ruler and her guards. Seeing this, Shiosai evacuated all those not under the influence of the void and placed a seal over the palace. However, the seal is threatening to break, and Shiosai intends to drown Shisui of the Violet Tides and everyone in it. You and Kurenai must convince him to do otherwise.
  • Shiosai agrees to give you a chance to purge the evil spirits occupying the palace and save its inhabitants. He hands you a scroll, which will grant you access to the palace. As you turn to depart, Kurenai divulges to you that she has not been entirely truthful with you. As much as she would like to set things right, it seems she can only do so after you save her sister. Follow her to Shisui of the Violet Tides.
  • Kurenai thanks you for agreeing to help and tells you that, though he might not show it, the sullen Shiosai is also very appreciative of all that you are doing for them. Now, delve into the palace and save the Ruby Princess!
※Shisui of the Violet Tides can be accessed via the Duty Finder.
  • You have successfully purged Shisui of the Violet Tides of all its unwanted inhabitants and rescued the Ruby Princess. Find Kurenai who awaits you at the entrance.
  • According to Kurenai, Shiosai has carried the Ruby Princess, who is in a comatose state, to the village. Bidding you return with her to the village where you might speak undisturbed, she takes off.
  • Although the possessed guards have come to their senses, the Ruby Princess has yet to awaken and Kurenai remains concerned for her sister's well-being. Nevertheless, she is extremely thankful to you for your help in ridding the palace of evil presence. As promised, she is now ready to divulge the truth she had been withholding from you. What secret could possibly have her so incredibly anxious to share?

You are a man from above?

I am Kurenai, sister to the Ruby Princess─the ruler of these seas.

Your bearing bespeaks a strength and courage few possess. I have been waiting for one such as yourself to arrive.

Though not many know it, the Ruby Princess's life currently hangs in the balance.

A few days ago, a man cloaked in black visited Shisui of the Violet Tides. He claimed he had come to bestow a blessing of holy protection upon the palace.

The incantation he muttered instead drew forth a terrible spirit, which took possession of my sister's body.

Not long after, similar wraiths of the void began to surge forth, overtaking the palace and stealing the souls of her nearby guards.

Shiosai immediately evacuated everyone and has since barred people from entering or leaving the palace. Officially, the Ruby Princess is conducting a private ceremony. None but Shiosai and I know the truth.

We have placed a seal over Shisui of the Violet Tides to prevent any of the wraiths within from escaping. However, it will not hold for much longer.

Shiosai grows more convinced by the hour that we must destroy the dome and everyone within it─including my sister.

I beseech you, man of the land, lend unto me your might. Please, find a way to save her.

What will you say?

I will see that she is kept from danger.

I cannot make any promises.

Thank you. Truly, I know not what I would have done had you said no. Now, please follow me. We must go speak with Shiosai.

<sigh> It is as they say: an experienced swimmer will avoid diving into uncharted waters, just as a seasoned warrior will keep out of the reach of an unknown enemy's lance.

Still, I had hoped I might rely on your help. If by some chance you change your mind, please seek out Shiosai.

I must meet with him to ensure he does not act prematurely and do something we will all regret.
Quest Accepted
Hm? And you are...?
(- Isobe -)
<chirp> <chirp>

...Lady Kurenai, what brings you here?

...What? My lady, you of all people must realize how incredibly dangerous it was of you to entrust another with our secrets─much less a newcomer whose intentions we know naught of!

What other choice did I have?

When the seal breaks, we will be forced to drown the palace and all souls within. Would you sooner have me sacrifice my sister and my people than turning to outside help?
...And you think that this man has some hidden power, capable of delivering Sui–no–Sato from untold disaster?
I realize it is not in your nature to ask for assistance but, like it or not, there is little else we can do. No outcome could be worse than losing the Ruby Princess. Even you must realize we only stand to gain by requesting this man's aid.


You have the right of it.

Very well. I will give your friend until the next high tide to rescue the princess. If he fails, however, I will destroy the dome─and atone for the deed with my life.

Remember, my lady, should it come to this, you shall be the one to inherit the throne.

Here, take this scroll. It will permit you to pass into Shisui of the Violet Tides. I presume you are aware of where it is located?

Not to worry. I shall show him there.

The palace lies just beyond the Turquoise Trench. Before we leave, however, there is one last thing I must share with you.

...I was not entirely truthful in everything I have told you.

It is nothing that affects our current predicament, but it is nevertheless a lie I mean to set straight once this is all over. Forgive me. If it was something I could tell you now, I would.

These are the gates to the palace. Inside are the Ruby Princess and her guards.

Thank you, Forename. Though he might not show it, Shiosai is secretly very grateful to you, too. The thought of having to kill the Ruby Princess─however indirectly─has been tormenting him.

Now, there is not much time left. Let us make our way in. You have the scroll of entry, correct? Remember, you will be unable to pass through the gates without it.
Whatever happens, please see that no harm comes to the princess.
Whatever happens, please see that no harm comes to the princess.

I know not how to thank you. You saved them, Forename. You saved all of them─even the Ruby Princess.

While she is unharmed, she is currently unconscious. Shiosai has carried her to Sui–no–Sato where she might rest undisturbed. It looks as though it will be a while before she wakes...

Before we speak any further, however, let us return to the village.

And to think I was ready to take such drastic measures... Please accept my sincerest apologies. I greatly misjudged you, and it nearly cost everyone their lives.

I have brought the Ruby Princess to the village that she might have a proper rest and recover from this ordeal. Alas, she has yet to open her eyes. I can only pray that she will wake soon.

Please allow me to once again thank you for your help.

You may be happy to hear that the palace guards are all slowly beginning to return to their senses. It seems peace has finally been restored to the palace.

You have saved everyone, including Shiosai, from an untimely death. If only the Ruby Princess would open her eyes, Sui–no–Sato will be exactly as it was before.

I suppose we must simply be grateful for how well things turned out.

Now that the worst of the storm has passed and the tides have begun to calm, it is time that I came clean...
