I, don't think a newspaper ad would suffice."


Bezel: "Probably not.

Even if we could contact them, it's questionable if they would agree to a meeting, given that they just stole the stone from you instead of trying to start with a more peaceful approach.

Maybe they want to keep their identity hidden, but we can't even guess who they might be."

"I mean, she appeared barefaced in front of several dozen policemen. There has to be someone out there who'd recognise her.

Aren't haste users a bit rare? We could start from there."

Bezel: "Rare, yes. We could start by looking into the member list of the Guild, can't be too many Haste users on there."

"Yeah, we'll head over there tomorrow. Can also take the chance to ask how Valerie's doing.

Hm. Pale skin, dark hair... That does kind of remind me of the Daeli. Did you see what color her eyes were?

...

Bezel. I'm, going to say something, farfetched. It's probably just a dumb idea, but, for the sake of exploring all options - You, lost a spirit capable of hasting. And since, it was part of you, it'd know I had the mana stone, and where I live, and the kinds of guns your friends were selling.

And, I assume, it'd care about me. Considering... Well, you."

Bezel: "Well, that is a bit farfetched.

How is the spirit having a body explained?"

"It attached to someone, I guess? You did ask if I gained any memories.
I, don't know how it would've gotten all the way down here. Or found a city-looking human host way over in Silo. Maybe a trader? Unless it hitched a ride with us without anyone noticing, somehow.

Like I said, far-fetched."

Bezel: "Mm.

Well, we'll start with the Guild's member list tomorrow, and go from there.

I, think I just want to relax for the rest of today. Hopefully the assailant isn't in the mood to do anything else soon."

~


The next day is spent going to the Guild building, which looks like a repurposed recreation center for mages to gather, hold meetings, and practice magic.

After getting a list of all three mages capable of Haste and running up and down Darson searching for them to chat, you not-so-quickly find that none of them look anything close to the assailant.


~


Monday, back in the office.

The list of expedition team candidates is in front of you, and you mull over the decision of who to hire.


Down the hall, you hear the receptionist talking, along with a woman's voice.

Receptionist: "Down the hall on the right side, his name is on the door."

Woman: "Thank you!"

Footsteps approach your office. Soon a woman steps into view and through your office, pausing several feet away from your desk, with a binder full of papers under one arm.

She has a crisp long-sleeved button-down white shirt, a black and white plaid skirt, black leggings, and dark leather shoes.

Pale skin, black hair in a bun, and what appears to be a white beret. Her face looks startlingly close to Claire's, though her body is more slim.

Woman: "Hi Ralph!"

She sounds an awful lot like Claire.

Let's not jump to any conclusions yet.

Still smiling, she grabs the edge of her beret and pulls it down over her face - and then you see it's not a beret at all, but one of Aldente's white masks.

You really took a liking to Claire, eh?"
