Fates Supports/Azura Rhajat(PC)
Azura: May I have a word with you, Rhajat?
Rhajat: Sure, Mother. What's on your mind?
Azura: I need to ask you something important. Please, be honest with me.
Rhajat: O-OK... What is it?
Azura: Someone told me that a group of villagers asked you to cast a spell upon them. Is that true?
Rhajat: They wanted me to perform a good-luck ritual for their upcoming harvest. I didn't really want to, but they were so insistent that I gave in eventually.
Azura: Those same villagers came by to complain about you.
Rhajat: Why would they complain? I just complied with their request.
Azura: Well evidently the people who you tried to help have fallen quite ill. It's some sort of strange sickness that they've never seen before.
Rhajat: I don't know why that would be. But sometimes even benign magic can have unintended side effects...
Azura: These people are insisting that it was your spell that brought about their sickness. I don't believe for a minute that you would ever set out to harm anyone. But you have to tell me more about this enchantment. There's no sense in people being afraid of you due to an unfair assumption.
Rhajat: Those villagers will be wary of me regardless of what I do. Maybe it doesn't really matter...
Azura: What do you mean, exactly?
Rhajat: It's just complicated, Mother. You shouldn't involve yourself in this. No good will come of it.
Azura: Don't leave, Rhajat. Come back!
Azura: All right, I think that's everything I need. I wish it wasn't so heavy... Regardless, I'd better head out.
Rhajat: Greetings, Mother...
Azura: R-Rhajat, you startled me!
Rhajat: That bag is awfully large. What have you been getting up to?
Azura: Oh I was just about to go shopping. There's no need to worry about me.
Rhajat: I know things have been crazy lately, but you look exhausted. Why don't you rest? I'd be more than happy to go shopping for you.
Azura: Oh no, I wouldn't want to bother you with something so mundane. I can handle a trip to the market.
Rhajat: Is this supposed shopping trip just a ruse? You're only now leaving the house, and yet that bag is filled to the brim. You were planning to assist those sick villagers, weren't you?
Azura: H-how did you—
Rhajat: I have a keen awareness of events unfolding around me. Do you feel obliged to come to their aid because they blame me?
Azura: No, that's not it at all...
Rhajat: Then what is driving you to help them?
Azura: I simply need to assist people that are suffering. It's important to me. Please, don't worry. I'm not judging you.
Rhajat: You didn't have to sneak around behind my back though...
Azura: I'm sorry. I really must be going. They're waiting on me to deliver the supplies.
Rhajat: Wait... I know that I'm not responsible for this illness. I'll be able to explain everything soon. But I need a little more time...
Azura: Very well. I won't pressure you. Please come straight away when you're ready to talk.
Rhajat: Thank you for understanding, Mother.
Rhajat: Here, Mother. I wanted to show you what I've been working on.
Azura: What is this plant, Rhajat? I've never seen it before. Do you think it will help with the villagers' sickness?
Rhajat: Yes, it will. It took longer than I would have liked to mature. I even had to use a bit of light magic to encourage the herb's growth. If I could have brought it to you sooner, I would have. I just needed to make sure it worked first. I'm sorry...
Azura: How did you discover this plant?
Rhajat: It took some time. When the villagers asked me to cast a spell for them, I noticed something strange... There were several people who were coughing profusely. A few of them also looked quite pale...
Azura: So they were already sick before you even cast that spell...
Rhajat: Yes, exactly. I had heard that there was a rare herb that naturally fights illness. I managed to track down some seeds and got to sprouting them right away.
Azura: You could have told them that you were working on a cure. Didn't you imagine that they would be suspicious of you?
Rhajat: My sole concern wasn't their perception of me. It was their health. The most important thing was to find a cure before the sickness got out of control. All I really cared about was you trusting me.
Azura: You're so very headstrong...
Rhajat: Um, why are you hugging me? We need to get this herb to the villagers right away.
Azura: Oh shush! Let me enjoy this moment! You did the right thing, even if your ways were a bit strange.
Rhajat: Ow, Mother! Let me go already. It hurts when you squeeze me so tightly. Listen, you should help me turn this herb into a tea. That way, we can distribute it quickly.
Azura: Oh yes, of course. I'm sorry. Let's go, Rhajat!
