Recruitment ConversationEdit

“Whew! You really saved the day. Thanks a million. Name's Jesse, by the by. I'm just your average garden-variety merc. So I spotted this girl at the port of Zofia. Real cute, ya know? Anyway, then I hear she's about to be sold off as a slave! You believe that? Well, I don't let ladies get sold into slavery on my watch! No sir! So I up and chased after her, and wound up getting caught. Turns out trying to take on a group of slavers single-handed is a terrible idea. Anyway, that's my story — what's yours? You're all traveling together, yeah? Looks like a real fun group. Don't suppose you got room for one more?”

Base Conversations Edit

First Conversation
"Heeeeey, Celica! You’re looking downright radiant today. Ha ha ha! No, I’m not kidding. I’m serious as a stab wound. I just call ’em as I see ’em, and I got the world’s cutest girl in front of me. …Huh? Are all men like me? Gosh, I couldn’t really say. I’m not really a fan of being lumped in with other guys, ya know?"
Second Conversation
"Man, the ladies in this army are fierce as hell AND gorgeous. I love it! I wake up every day raring to go! …Hey, c’mon. Don’t look at me like that. I’m not COMPLETELY shallow. I’m just saying the world’s full of beauty and it’s a fool who doesn’t enjoy it. Women are the gods’ most perfect creation. So I want as many as I can g— Er, are you leaving? But I was… No? We’re done? Okay, I think we’re done."
Third Conversation
"…My family? Woof. It’s been forever since I’ve seen ’em, honestly. They were…strict, I guess you’d call it. Do this, wear that, stop being friends with whomever… I got fed up and took off. I guess some folks just need to live by that kind of tight framework. Me railing against that wasn’t going to make anyone happy, you know? So I figure I’ll find my own place where I can live in a way that does."
