: Sorry to be so sudden, but I've got bad news. Come this way.
The screen darkens as Viktor tells his side of the story after Muse got sacked.
They're still waiting on everyone else to show up. To be fair, Highland has shut down the ports, so it may be that they have to go east through Toto, around the area Viktor's fort was in, and through Radat off to the east to get here. Come to think of it, why didn't we
Since it's pretty likely that Highland will be coming here sooner or later, Viktor's off to hawk his services as a mercenary army to the mayor of South Window. Now that he's without a fort, he'll need some lodgings and some income to keep everyone housed and fed.Music: Silent Room
Remember this guy from the Hilltop Conference? He got called out by Gustav of Tinto about being a coward during the war with the Scarlet Moon Empire. Indeed, it was Granmeyer's soldiers who raided Moravia as part of Mathiu's plan to convince Kasim Hasil to join the revolution against Barbarosa, but when the Toran Republic took their territory back it was a major loss of face for Granmeyer.Viktor
: Glad to see you're well also, Lord Granmeyer.Granmeyer
: Muse has fallen to Highland and South Window is now in peril. Your reputation precedes you and I'd like to retain your services.Muteiu
: Well, that was easy. Who's up for dinner? I got a good fish fry recipe.Viktor
: But of course, my lord. I'd be proud to help. Right now I'm gathering lost colleagues who fled from Muse.Granmeyer
: By the way, you were born in North Window, weren't you?
He called it "Northwind" in the last game, but yeah, this is Viktor's home turf. Remember that Japanese syllables almost always have a vowel sound in them, so the town's name in the original Japanese would end in "do", not "d" alone. Another one to chalk up to the hasty translation.Viktor
: Well, yes...Granmeyer
The Y stands for Yamamoto.Freedy
: Troops we've sent to investigate report that some type of monster is living in North Window.Granmeyer
: VIktor. You know North Window better than anyone.. I know it will be hard for you, but please investigate the village for me.
Viktor has his hesitations, but Granmeyer gives him a slap on the back and Freedy to assist, so we have our next goal.
Of course, the party didn't get the explanation from last game, so there's some confusion over why returning to his hometown will be hard for Viktor.
