  • Lyse has tidings to share with you.
  • Lyse is busy apprising you of recent developments in Ala Mhigo when Alphinaud and Alisaie arrive bearing word from Tataru. Apparently, Hancock has acquired information of great interest and no small amount of urgency, leaving you little choice but to set out at once for the offices of the East Aldenard Trading Company in distant Kugane.
  • At the Ruby Bazaar, Hancock shares a tantalizing rumor: that individuals resembling Gosetsu and Yotsuyu were but recently seen walking the streets of Kugane. Though you struggle to comprehend how they could possibly have escaped Doma Castle alive, the fact remains that the Garleans were sufficiently convinced to dispatch a sizable contingent of soldiers to hunt them down. Never one to leave a comrade at an enemy's mercy, you agree to join Yugiri in her quest for the truth.
  • Ever eager to help, Hancock has taken the liberty of employing “one of the finest informants money can buy” to aid in the search. He awaits you in the back streets of Sanjo Hanamachi...
  • To no one's surprise, the informant turns out to be Gyodo, the Namazu who unwisely betrayed you to the Empire during your first visit to Kugane. Promising no more funny business, he shares a promising lead: an elderly Roegadyn samurai recently sold a katana of surpassing craftsmanship to a pawnbroker on Kogane Dori. While Alisaie accompanies Gyodo to a meeting with his imperial connections, you and the others will seek out the pawnbroker to ascertain whether the weapon in question did indeed belong to Gosetsu.

Forename! Great timing! I was just about to send word to the Scions. I've got lots to tell you!

The council has officially recognized the Resistance as our standing army. And I expect you can guess who's been appointed commander. Suffice it to say, we're in good hand!

Having the Bull of Ala Mhigo at the helm's done wonders for morale. People were dancing in the streets when the announcement was made. And we have you and the sultana to thank for it. If you two hadn't worked your magic, he'd never have contemplated following his heart.
The council has also decreed that we're to maintain a presence at Rhalgr's Reach. Lyse will continue to lead our forces in the Fringes─a job she's been doing tirelessly. A bit too tirelessly, some might say. We're constantly having to remind her to rest before she falls over.
That's an exaggeration─and I always get up again. Anyway, we can hardly afford to lower our guard now. Not after our latest brush with Lakshmi. Speaking of which, we've been keeping a close eye on the Qalyana, and it looks like they've chosen a new leader.

It's, um...Shanti's daughter. You know, the half-dead one. For whatever reason, the Qalyana thought she was the best candidate. Which makes them leaderless, basically.

As things stand, there's no prospect of engaging in talks, let alone coming to an understanding.

But I won't let that stop me. I'll keep on reaching out to them until they finally see sense.

Just like I've been reaching out to Fordola. She still won't meet my gaze, but she's given up trying to ignore me. It may only be the odd grunt, but at least she's responding. I'll get through to her yet.
Forename, there you are!
Alphinaud, Alisaie! Is everything all right?
We've received word from Tataru. Hancock has apparently acquired information of great interest and urgency. More than that she didn't say─only that we should come to Kugane right away.
I had a mind for the two of us to set forth together, but Alisaie is determined to make it a party of three.
As I've told you more than a dozen times, Brother, my wounds are quite healed, and I would benefit from some fresh air. Besides, you may well need an extra pair of hands.
Worry not, Sister, I have quite given up trying to convince you.
Whether we be two or three, we should depart as soon as possible. You will be joining us, I trust?
Huh. I was about to say I'd come too, but I'll just have to settle for cheering you on from afar. Good luck with...whatever it turns out to be!
Thank you, Lyse. Rest assured, should this business prove to be of even tangential concern to Ala Mhigo, we shall inform you without delay.
Let us be off, then. Hancock and Tataru await us at the Ruby Bazaar offices.
Give Tataru a hug from me, all right?
I hope all goes well in Kugane. Safe travels.
