It is recommended that you clear Ch. 7: Imber Manor before playing.
- Sazh: Huh? Is someone waving at us over there?
- Firion: Maybe she knows one of us? She doesn't look hostile; let's go see.
- ???: What a relief. I didn't think I'd run into any other adventurers in this desolate place.
- Cloud: And you are?
- Lion: I'm Lion. An adventurer, just like yourselves.
- Squall: Lion? That's your name?
- Lion: It sure is. And a pretty good one, if I do say so myself.
- Squall: ...Fair enough. What were you doing out here?
- Lion: I got completely lost while looking for the rest of my party...
- Lion: I've been in a real bind, what with all the groups of monsters wandering around here.
- Galuf: First lost and then surrounded by monsters... That is unfortunate.
- Lion: Hey, would you mind helping me thin them out some?
- Lion: Running into you here had to be fate.
- Firion: Sure thing. We can't ignore someone who needs a hand.
- Cloud: Our agendas match: we were here to fight monsters, anyway.
- Lion: Thanks. You'll be a big help.
- Lion: I'll check things out over there. We'll meet up later.
- Sazh: You got it! Be careful!
- Lion: Ha ha, you too!
(Lion runs off)
- Layle: Howdy, Lion. What's the word?
- Lion: Terrific. A lot fewer monsters around, thanks to you guys.
- Steiner: Hear, hear! A horde of beasts is nothing in the face of our combined might!
- Lion: Haha, it must be nice to have such a strong party.
- Lion: That being said, your equipment and armor are all quite different. How did you group up?
- Mog: Kupo! I can answer that for you, kupo!
- Lion: I can't believe it... This isn't Vana'diel?
- King: You said you're looking for your party. Can you describe them?
- Lion: A bunch of adventurers from Norg. I don't suppose that rings any bells.
- King: None for me. Anyone else?
- Shantotto: If in Vana'diel you need a pirate, the caves of Norg is where you'll find it.
- Lion: Huh!? Professor Shantotto! You're here, too!?
- King: You know the doctor?
- Lion: Know her? She's a hero of the Great War, renowned as the most powerful black mage...
- Shantotto: Ohohoho! That's the very least you could know!
- Layle: Pity. You're from the same world, but Shantotto wasn't who you were looking for, eh?
- Layle: I haven't heard anything about a group from Norg either.
- Lion: I see... I guess I can't hope for much when everyone is from a different world...
- Lion: I'm going to search some more. If Professor Shantotto is here, they might be, too...
- Layle: Hold on. You're planning to go solo?
- Lion: I am. I'd hate to impose on you more than I already have.
- Layle: Ugh... Moogle, you okay with that?
- Mog: Not at all, kupo! You should stick with us!
- Layle: There you have it...
- Lion: Really? Are you sure it's no problem?
- Steiner: What problem could there be in adding another just companion to our cause?
- King: Plus, this moogle is able to detect otherworlders. Maybe your friends, too.
- Layle: Agreed, use what you have at your disposal. Now, any more excuses not to join us?
- Lion: ...Haha, I can't turn down an invitation like that. You know, Layle, you're more of a busybody than I thought.
- Layle: Just a whim.
- Lion: I'll take you up on it. Thanks for letting me join your party.
- Layle: That takes care of the Torsion...
- Lion: This'll keep down the monsters' numbers around here, yeah?
- Bartz: Yup, we can breathe easy for a bit. You sure pack a punch, Lion.
- Penelo: But there are still Torsions the world over.
- Laguna: In other words, we keep wandering until we close every last one.
- Lion: Oh? ...Sounds like we're in for the long haul. Hehe...
- Layle: You don't have to look so happy about it.
- Lion: My dream has always been to travel the world with my friends.
- Lion: Naturally, I wouldn't expect our journey to be easy. Plenty of trouble and pain must be waiting for us...
- Lion: But that makes me want to see it all the more.
- Lion: What kind of spectacular view awaits after overcoming the hardest trials with your companions?
- Layle: Ah, now I get it. You're the posse type. Traveling free from the herd isn't so bad, you know.
- Laguna: No, no, Layle! She said it perfectly! As a fellow aspiring journalist, I know exactly what she means!
- Penelo: Huh? When did Lion say she wanted to be a journalist?
- Layle: Setting journalism aside... Travel has its pleasures. I've done my fair share of wandering.
- Bartz: I love to travel! It's so fun to see all the different scenery!
- Bartz: ...It'd be even better if Boko were here, too. I wonder how he's doing...
- Onion Knight: There's nothing wrong with having fun, but...aren't you looking for your companions, Lion?
- Lion: I am worried about them...but Vana'diel's adventurers are no pushovers.
- Lion: I bet they've found themselves some new friends and are having a grand old time. Just like me.
- Laguna: That's the spirit! You know what they say: the journey with a babe is the reward!
- Onion Knight: ...Do they say that where you're from?
- Lion: When this adventure is done, I hope I can travel around all your worlds, too.
- Lion: You'll come with me then, too, right? Haha, promise?
- Bartz: You bet! Leave it to me! I'll lead the way!
- Onion Knight: Bartz is leading...?
- Penelo: Hehe... The road will be a meandering one.
