Rif: I didn't even consent to anything, but now we're stuck looking for Tier.
Killfith: Honestly… do you have to involve me in all of your petty whining?
Rif: I'm sorry... but since Murno's waiting for us back at the inn, I guess we should do our best?
Eventually, in the Concealed Forest, we find Tier—entertaining a couple of guests.
Rif: There she is! But what is she doing?
Killfith: Those are...! Tch... that trash... even this far...
Tier: (!) Ah... it's you...
Rif: What are you doing? Trying to trick somebody else?
???: Hm, an acquaintance of yours? Isn’t that Companion Beast…?
???: Hold on, that Summon Creature is from Sapureth. I don’t believe it, is this who she was talking about…?
Tier: Right, right. Anyway, let’s head over to the inn.
???: Are you trying to tell us these children are the ones we’re looking for? They look completely different!
-I can’t believe we almost let this girl trick us. We have nothing more to say here. Let's go.
(They start to leave, but Tier grabs onto one of them)
Tier: Wait...! Don't worry about it. Anyway, the inn...
???: Shut up! Get your hands off me!
Tier: Now, now, don’t say that…!
Rif: Gee whiz... still trying to nab people...
Killfith: Those guys are our enemies... we can't let them get near the inn.
Rif: Enemies... wait, what do you...?
Killfith: It's already decided. We have to fight them.
Rif: Fight them...?!
???: Dammit... that's more than enough!
-(gets flung away)
???: I don't care if you are a child! If you continue to get in our way, we will show you what pain is!
Killfith: Let's go!
-Understood! We'll fight them. >Jumping in
-Hold on a minute! >Hestitation
Jumping InRif: I got it! We can't just sit here and watch this!
(Rif plunges into battle)
HesitationRif: But I... why should we...?!
Killfith: You want to know?! Forget it... you just sit there and watch!
Rif: Ah! Geez!
(Killfith runs into battle. If he kicks it, Rif steps in to finish)
???: How is it these two are so strong?
???: How should I know?
???: It doesn't matter... they don't fit the kid's description. Let's go.
Tier: Ah, wait! At least have some food before...
-(turns to Rif, annoyed) I can't believe it... what's wrong with you? Chasing away my third target of the day…
Rif: What on earth are you talking about?! Were you seriously going to argue with those guys?
Tier: Well, of course…. Wait. Maybe—
-Maybe you fought them because you wanted to protect me?
Rif: Ah, no, that's... to be honest...
Tier: (blushing) Thank you. Umm, it's Rif, right?
Rif: Yeah. Well, actually it's Rifmonica. And this is Killfith.
Tier: Speaking of that... you said you were Craftknights, right?
Rif: What about it?
Tier: (Isn't it wonderful?! This couldn't get any more perfect...!)
-Then how about you two use your abilities as Craftknights to work at our inn?
Tier: You’re borrowing that Summon Creature's power to forge weapons, right? That's why they possess such fantastic strength.
Rif: Well, it's something like that, but...
Tier: Then, aren't the weapons you forge something really special?! A product like that could become our inn's specialty!
-With you repairing our weapons, the number of our customers should increase exponentially!
Tier: Please, help our inn!
Tier: So will you? Will you?! Pleeease?!
Rif: Agh, cripes... I wonder what I should do...
-I guess it can't hurt to think about it… >Maybe
-No way! Absolutely not! >Nope
MaybeKillfith: You've gotta be kidding me. There's no way I'd help you!
Tier: Ehh?! Whyyy?!
Killfith: Why I should I have to work for the sake of your shop?
Rif: And besides that, right now we have to get to Prosban, so we can't stay here. >She shall not be discouraged
NopeRif: We are still making our way to Prosban, so we can't stay here as blacksmith's assistants. >She shall not be discouraged
She shall not be discouragedTier: So what you're saying is, you only can't do it for now?
Rif: I think you might be missing the point…
Tier: You said it's just for now that you can't… so that means I definitely have a chance to make you work for us!
Rif: Eh?! Wait, how do you figure that?!
Tier: Now that that's settled, I'll go let Mom know.
Rif: She's pretty fast...
Killfith: These humans...
Rif: Killfith... what on earth did those men want? Does it have something to do with Murno?
Killfith: There's nothing I can tell you.
Rif: What do you...
Killfith: I made a promise with Murno that I wouldn't speak of it. Do you want me to violate that promise?
Rif: A promise... I see...
Rif: Then shall we head back to where everyone else is?
Killfith: Might as well…
//As a side note, they don't use the word for "Guardian Beast" in this game like they did in the other two. Ever. Instead, everyone says "partner," "comrade," or "assistant." In a previous version of this page, I had the goons call Killfith a "Guardian Beast," but I decided that was silly, since the term "Guardian Beast" is a very noble capacity in the previous two games. Here, what they're literally saying is "Summon Creature companion," but since that sounds awkward, I changed it to "Companion Beast."//
