The Depths of Hades was a large mine abandoned by a small band of dwarves before Kaze'aze took Anastasia. The Chase arrive here after recieving their "prize" from the arena, a map. The place was fabled to contain a great treasure, and a large band of thieves have begun searching for it.
Raide: Peh, some reward this is, wheres all of my jewels?
Sinclaire: The map of course lil'n'purple. It'll lead us there, heehee!
Arme: *looks over map* The Depths of Hades?
Antheia: Yeah, thats right. I've heard that a bunch of theives, scums and all, have started looking for the gold around here.
Leon: Gold? Just more for my betting winnings, hehheh...
Ronan: Lets get moving team!
Thief King: You, scrap eater, why aren't you telling us where the gold is?!
- This "scap eater" is sitting down lazily, arms folded and leaning in his arm, one eye visible*
???: Some know all...
Thief King: I know that peasant! TELL ME WHERE THE GOLD IS!
???: Treadding towards thou...
Lloyd: Unhand him, villain!
Thief King: What the hell are you? A kids game character?
???: Thy name is Treadd
Antheia: Rain or shine, your going down scum! CHARGE!
Treadd: Soon enough, they will fall...
Thief King: Hack! *cough*. Damn you all...
Antheia: Hell, I should be.
- Lloyd and Ronan walk up to Treadd, and help him up. He still keeps his expression.*
Antheia: How about this? Tell us where Abidanos' relocated his keep, and we'll just beat you up a little.
Treadd: ...The fallen rises from the ashes, at his spared will...
- Antheia somehow understands what he means, and nods*
Antheia: We'll let you be if you tell us.
Thief King: T-There is only one road, through the trees of Acantha.
- Antheias eyes widen, Raide looking back and forth*
Raide:... Is that a good thing?
Ronan: I recognise you, I've seen your sign everywhere, Kanavan, Serdin, Ellia, Xenia, Silver Land, Alucubra, Archimedia. All of the lands, for my entire life I have seen you. Just who are you?
Treadd: ...The greater good know a pathway to many abilities... Some unnatural...
- He glares a Deimos, then Antheia. He stares right into her eyes, although lazily, half shut. She looks away, some tears in her eyes*
