The Goofiest Hrothgar
She calls out for him, but gets no response. Reluctantly, she leaves with Satznswys.
Utilizing the transport device they found, they appear on the surface, way from beneath the island of Vylbrand, all the way near to Castrum Meridianum.
She brushes the apparent incongruity off. More present in her mind is that Louisoix is alive! And yet, he didn't seem to respond to her calling to him.
...One thing you'll get to know about Alisaie is that she often gives voice to the player's thoughts. She's very canny.
Urianger finds this all hard to swallow, but trusts both Alisaie and Satznswys's account.
Urianger's got something to report on the aetheric disturbance that corresponded with the roar they heard at Lake Silvertear: it originated at Carteneau Flats. Alisaie concludes that it could only have been Bahamut. Seems that over the past five years, instead of being destroyed, as all had thought, he merely remained dormant beneath Carteneau, regenerating. That would account for the lack of that region's ability to heal, if the primal were absorbing that area's aether to regenerate Himself. And the stronger He gets, the more aether he needs. Just like Ifrit or Garuda, only an order of magnitude greater.
Alisaie believes that Louisoix is keeping an eye on the situation down there, ensuring that Bahamut does not free Himself. Urianger still finds this all a bit hard to believe, but the word of two is much stronger than the word of just one.
So she's going to search for these other fragments of Dalamud. Urianger suggests alerting the grand companies, but Alisaie says not to worry, because Alphinaud, canny boy that he is, has likely already informed them. Leave that diplomatic rat's nest to the diplomat, and give Alisaie the space to work the field, which plays much more nicely to her strengths. Together, she says, they'll uncover the whole truth of the Calamity.
