Are you [NAME]? I'm Zidd. I asked a young hunter, Ash, to do some research on Ragol. He's supposed to be done with the job by now, he hasn't yet. Perhaps he got himself into some trouble... So I want to ask you to go to Ragol and rescue him. Not by yourself. Please go with that hunter over there. First of all, can you bring him here? I'll talk to you later.
First of all, can you bring him here? I'll talk to you later.

Approach Kireek.

Kireek
Are you [NAME]? It's the first time I've had a partner. Zidd asked me to do this job first. Unexpectedly, he told me I'd have to work with someone else... I had to say YES as he is my client...

Kireek joins you.

Zidd
Hello again, [NAME]. He's Kireek, your partner for this quest. He is a HUcast. He's a pro. Perhaps you can learn a lot from him. Kireek, I know you are unhappy, but I need two hunters for this. One has to retrieve the data disk that I asked Ash to get. The other is to help Ash return here if he is injured. This is my personal agenda. It has nothing to do with business. Ash is my cousin. I don't want to lose him. Please understand.
Kireek
...... I have no choice.
Zidd
What are you doing here? Please hurry up and find Ash. Good luck.

Forest 1

Approach room 2.

Kireek
Here come the wild animals of Ragol. If you're close enough, a cursor shows you which enemy you can attack. Don't let them surround you!

Kill all the enemies in the room.

Kireek
Be careful. Even if you defeat one group, another one may be hiding near you. Watch the radar. Prepare for the battle so you don't get surrounded.

While you approach the switch...

Kireek
That's the door switch. Press it. Did the door open?

Kill all the enemies in room 4.

Kireek
In some areas, you must defeat all the enemies to unlock the door. Perhaps it's a security reason... Other doors can be opened through switches.

Approach the boxes in room 5.

Kireek
Arms and protectors have attributes. Learn to link attributes to enemy types. Monsters around here are all native animals. Practice on them. Techniques also have attributes. Learn the attributes if you want to survive.

Go in the direction of the door to room 6.

Kireek
If you're with your teammates, they'll watch your back. If you're alone, try to change the view often to look around.

Kill all the enemies in room 6.

Kireek
What's wrong? Is it difficult to hit the enemies?

Yes, very...

Kireek
All right. I'll teach you some of the three basics. Stop and listen to me. First of all, there are three different types of attacks. "Attack" is a fast striking move, but it's not very powerful. A charged "Heavy Attack" is more powerful, but it can be easily dodged. "Extra Attack" generates a special power from your weapon. Understand? You can do up to 3 combo attacks if you attack rapidly. This is a simple tip to help you increase your hit rate. How do you choose which attack to use? Judge it by the enemies you face. Make sure you survive. Try some attacks when you see some monsters.

No problem.

Kireek
All right. It's OK as long as you aren't a liability.

If you answered "Yes, very...", Kireek will address you after you have killed all the enemies in room 7.

Kireek
[NAME], did you learn the trick? Two easy "Attacks", then a critical "Heavy Attack" as a finishing blow. This is one example.

Approach the door to room 8.

Kireek
One can also use Techniques. Techniques use up TP, but they always hit enemies. Unfortunately, androids can't use Techniques. I envy those who can.

Kill all the enemies in room 8.

Kireek
Here's a simple battle tip... Be mindful of the colors during the battle. The cursor color above the enemy is a hint on how to attack an enemy.

Approach the door to room 9.

Kireek
[NAME], look at your Controller. The cursor colors correspond to the buttons colors. If an enemy is marked with a red cursor, press the red button! Got it?

Enter room 10.

Ash
Wh...who is it!?
Ash
I don't know who you are, but be careful... They're...still hiding around here.
......

Go further in room 10.

Kireek
I can hear something... A growl...?

Kill all the enemies in the room.

Ash
The disk? I think... it's near the monsters.

Pick up the disk, shown as a sparkle.

Narrator
Got the data disk!

When you talk to Ash, the screen fades for a moment as he gets up. At the same time, Kireek leaves your party.

Ash
(breath) Thank you.... Wha...? Zidd? Now I know why you guys are here... He always treats me like a kid... I completed the quest, but suddenly, they attacked me here. Monsters appeared and I dropped the disk. I couldn't do anything.
How vexing...! I appreciate that you guys came to save me, but I...
Kireek
I'll take this boy with me. You deliver the disk to the client. Then we can finish this job. [NAME]..., train yourself. Become much stronger to impress me... Ha, ha, ha...

Kireek and Ash disappear, and a telepipe appears.

Ash
Thank you. I'll keep practicing!
Zidd
Kireek already left after receiving the Meseta. Phew... I have never seen such an intimidating android. It was like that android was built for battle. This must be the disk that I asked Ash to find. Thanks. Ash is enduring the pain, since he won't go see a doctor. You can get your reward at the Hunter's Guild. Thank you.
