Morning broke over the Temple in the marshlands, Dex was still asleep by the archway. Ashe and Ariel were fast asleep in their tent. Sebastien quietly approached the camp, in truth it was Lumina, wearing the appearance of Sebastien, Dex heard footsteps and sprung awake.
"Roisin?" He said, before his mind had awoken, he focused on the figure, then drew his Celestial Lance. "Who are you?" He growled.
"A friend" Sebastien smiled.
"Hmm, really? How'd you find us all the way out here?" Dex kept his weapon raised.
"You made yourselves quite easy to find with that campfire last night" Sebastien shrugged.
"Hmm, so who are you then?" Dex asked.
"Sebastien Gallus, an ex-student at Wynd Academy" Sebastien stated. "Never heard of you" Dex grunted. Ashe burst out of the tent.
"Wait, Dex! He's telling the truth!" Ashe shouted. Dex lowered his spear and it dissipated into the air. Ashe ran over to Sebastien, unaware that he was actually Lumina.
"I thought you'd died..." Ashe sighed.
"Yeah, it was a close call, I managed to escape before everything went to hell, then laid low." Sebastien began. "Then I began hearing the news about the heroes of Ishtall and followed your story, it eventually led me here." He said, smiling. Ariel exited the tent and yawned.
Sebastien scanned the three of them. "Hmm, where's the other, I heard there were four of you?" She asked. Dex looked into the Temple, then back to Sebastien.
"She went in there, being chased by Rory Ferras, but they didn't return." He sighed deeply.
"Rory? I heard you guys put that rabid dog down?" Sebastien asked.
"So did we, until he turned up yesterday." Dex explained.
"Hmm" Sebastien looked inside the temple, and felt the walls. "Yes, this is a temple dedicated the Lord of the Underworld" He said, running his hand along the wall. "Strange that it's gate would be active though" He pondered.
"You seem to know a lot about this" Ariel said, as she rested against a nearby tree. Sebastien smiled and approached Ariel, and held his hand out for a handshake, Ariel refused.
"I don't trust you" Ariel said flatly.
"But I told you, he's fro..." Ashe began.
"Ashe, you said it yourself, you thought he was dead, yet here he stands, sound familiar?" Ariel said, looking into Ashe's eyes. Ashe nodded subtly as she realized what Ariel was thinking. Dex quietly approached Sebastien from behind and tackled him to the floor.
"Where is Roisin!?" He yelled.
"Huh?! Get off me!" Sebastien grunted.
"You may have fooled us yesterday with your glamour, but not today, whoever you are" Ariel said as she tied Sebastien's hands together with rope, noticing that one was robotic.
"Yesterday? You think I was Rory?" Sebastien asked.
"I think you glamoured yourself as him, to trap Roisin" Ariel kicked Sebastien in the stomach, Sebastien coughed.
"Where is she?" Dex shouted.
"She's obviously in the Underworld! Let me go and I can take you there!" Sebastien barked back.
"Yeah, and trap us there too, no doubt..." Ashe smirked.
Sebastien grunted, Lumina knew she could easily break these binds around her hands, but for now she had to play along.
