Seems like your part is done here.

You and Evelyn take a cab to the address Claire gave you and quickly find yourselves in front of a small bakery.

Stepping inside, you take in the pleasant atmosphere - clean wallpaper on the walls, shelves of various jams and other spreads, a couple of tables and chairs, and a glass counter with breads and pastries illuminated with a warm artificial light. The scent of coffee and fresh baked goods complete the mood.


A tall man with short blonde hair is behind the counter. Sporting a white apron, you assume he's the baker.

Baker: "Afternoon. What can I get you two?"

Baker: "Apple or cheese?"

Uh, you'll take apple, you guess.

Evelyn: "I'll have a, small coffee? Light."

Baker: "One apple danish and a light-roast, coming right up."

He turns around to the back counter and pours a measured amount of coffee beans into a grinder, and then those into a coffee press before adding hot water.

While the coffee grounds soak, he fetches an apple danish from the glass counter and wraps it in paper, setting it on the counter.

You and Evelyn pay for your items, and after a few minutes Evelyn's coffee is ready, fresh and piping hot in a paper cup.


Evelyn walks to the end of the counter, adding sugar and cream to taste, while you nibble a bit on your danish. Tastey!

"Thanks for that by the way, we couldn't find her when she went missing, and I know she was kind of a mess for a bit.
Anyway, we came here today to ask if you could teach Evelyn your family's memory magic."

"Short version is to enter Vallis up in Ariana.
I'm an archaeologist by trade, and I've set my eyes on the First and some sites up there, but the political situation up there between the First and Second is, precarious.
To get into Vallis and the First's territory I'm expecting to have to submit to mental scans, and I've met some people and been some places that they might consider... ehhhh, somewhat heretical.
The problem is that I kind of need to remember some of that while I'm in Vallis."

Baker: "That's an idea.

Evelyn is..."



Evelyn: "Me, Evelyn Loach."

Baker: "The Loach family, hm."


He thinks for a moment.


Baker: "You know the details of my father's old business, yes?"

Baker: "That's the gist of it.

A lot of people wanted to forget things, especially after the war. Locking the memories away wasn't reliable and had other issues, outright deleting them wasn't a great solution if the client eventually wanted their memories back, so they were safely stored in a memory crystal.

Well, a lot of people end up wanting their memories back, so even if my father's business closed years ago, I'm returning people's memories when they find their way here.


So, let's make a deal.

I teach you my father's skills, and you take over the operation of returning memories."
