FFT Aliste's Defeat

Aliste's defeat.

Aliste eventually realized he was suffering from a terminal disease. Deciding he wanted to die fighting Beowulf, Aliste agreed to kidnap Reis for Celebrant Bremondt. When Beowulf and Reis were visiting Lionel with Ramza, Aliste appeared and kidnapped her, much to Beowulf's surprise. Aliste told him to come to Lionel castle if he wanted to see her again.

Beowulf and Ramza arrived at the castle. When they saw the open gate, they realized it was a trap, prompting Aliste to appear before them. A fight ensued between them, and Aliste was eventually slain. On his dying breath, he explained to Beowulf how he wanted to die fighting him, before the disease could take his life. Beowulf, upset at his friend's death, proceeded onward to kill the man who had used his friend like this.
