The Final Feast


«Scene: Oishii stands by as the Hero fights Catrina in the crypt»

Hero: How… *huff* are you still… *puff* standing?!

Catrina: I won't let you destroy me! The world may have forgotten me, but I won't be sent to oblivion!

Hero: Oh, for…

«Hero points»

Hero: Look, I don't want to destroy you! I just want you to calm down!

Oishii: You'll have to find another way. Her emotions are so strong - her anger is fueling her power.

Catrina: And why shouldn't I be angry?
Catrina: Every year, all of the spirits in Darkovia are surrounded by their loved ones.
Catrina: While I am imprisoned in this tomb, forgotten and alone!

«Close up of Hero»

Hero: …Is that what the problem is?
Hero: You're angry because no one remembers you?

«Close up of Catrina»

Catrina: Of course that's why I'm angry!
Catrina: If no one remembers us, we can no longer "love"! It is all we have!

Hero: Oh. Well… I'll remember you, then.

«Question marks appear over Catrina's head»

Catrina: What?

Hero: I'll remember you!
Hero: I'll come here every year, and bring you your favorite meal, and your favorite flowers.
Hero: And you can tell me about yourself, and your family, and your life.

«Close up of Hero»

Hero: I'll bring my friends, and you can tell them, too. And we'll remember you.
Hero: You wont't be lonely or forgotten any more.

«Close up of Catrina»

Catrina: …You won't possibly keep this promise.

Hero: I will. I swear. I'm sorry things have gone so badly for you. But you can move on from it.

Catrina: I… don't know how. It's horrible to be so alone. *sob*

«Screen zooms back out»

Hero: Who says you have to be?
Hero: There's an entire graveyard out there full of people who want to celebrate. And you can join them…
Hero: …once you stop infecting the other spirits with all this anger and bitterness.
Hero: What do you say? Are you willing to try?

«Scene: Oishii and the Hero in the graveyard outside the crypt, with the two villagers from before in the background»

Oishii: *whew* That was quite the night, wasn't it?

Hero: Tell me about it. Who knew something as simple as remembering could be so powerful?

Oishii: Don't forget - now you have a promise to keep.

Hero: And I intend to. Dying is something we can't avoid…
Hero: But that doesn't mean we have to be forgotten.

Oishii: Good thing you have such a good memory!
