Stage Entry
Initial "I've known this boy since we were kids, but I have no idea what's on his mind lately. To be honest, I'm a bit worried. Would someone be able to give me some advice on how to handle this? I'll be in the upper class dormitory if you can help." --Bridget, Year 1, Class II
1 After speaking with Bridget:
  • I agreed to help Bridget find out how Alan feels about her. He's in the Fencing Club, so I'll look for him there.
2 After speaking with Friedel and Loggins:
  • Alan wasn't in the training hall, but Loggins, a second year, told me he might be on the field.
3 After speaking with Alan:
  • I found Alan training alone on the field and suggested we fight a Combat Shell together a la Class VII's practical exams.
4 After fighting the Combat Shell (with bonus conditions):
  • Alan regained his confidence after he landed the final blow on the Combat Shell. Better yet, he told me how he feels about Bridget... He can handle things from here.
