I had the same question every time I walked this way when I was a kid
Why is this high wall here? And, can a wall really block sandstorms?
It was only after I grew up that I realized…
It serves a more important purpose — keeping out people like us
We’ve waited a long time for this day to come…
Fate has finally dealt me a hand to play against the Akademiya
Do you think the resurrection of the Scarlet King (King Deshret) can truly change Sumeru for the better?
The resurrection of the Scarlet King (King Deshret) will only result in war…
And war serves no one
A shield is not enough to protect the most important things
That’s why I must also wield a spear
Do your worst!
Grant us your blessing!
…You’ve betrayed Aaru Village?
Don’t do anything…
…until I’ve gotten to the bottom of this
Try something foolish, and even Candace won’t be able to protect you
Through me, justice is served!
If we’re unhappy, we should speak up and let our voices be heard
All eyes on me!
Life for the desert-dwellers has been brutal ever since the Scarlet King’s (King Deshret’s) death all those years ago
Feelings of desperation are widespread
Traitors are what us followers of the Scarlet King (King Deshret) despise the most
One of us could be secretly revealing our whereabouts to the Akademiya
Answer me this…
Did the sages share any information about their project with you?
We’re cheap labor. Like livestock, but easier to control… Nothing more
Hehe… My experiment is a success
And now, it seems they can no longer hold back their sheer adoration
There is no need to fear. The pain will be brief…
Your era… is coming to an end
I am Mika, surveyor of the Reconnaissance Company
I will now be reading Grand Master Varka’s letter aloud for you all
Does this mean the Grand Master knew Razor’s parents?
Fill up the barrels and store them away
Then wait, wait for a windier day
Wax the bottles, seal them tight
For the south wind that soothes, for the north wind that bites
Dear friends, let us now open the wines
To the Anemo Archon!
