Herald


Description

The Herald is a toy robot with a TV for a head riding a camel, who appears numerous times throughout the Fallen City. Each time Valor meets the Herald, he tells part of a story about two brothers. This story is framed in a medieval setting, but is actually about Valor and Varty. Spraying him with link fluid will prompt him to tell an alternate story.


Dialogue

Hear, hear, traveler, the tale of the land: In the lands below, full of wealth and joy, lived a king, so noble, crafting soldiers from rust and toys. Two brothers were born to a house on high. One a grim fighter. The other a master of the mind.

Hear, hear, traveler, the tale of the land: They rode together and roamed the land, until the wild beauty with hair like sand. The king reached out, her hand shall be thine. She smiled and laughed and whispered benign: Be my friend, be my love and hear my fable: Deep in the earth I seek the Cradle.

Hear, hear, traveler, the tale of the land: Black was the knight, and so was the night, when he and his henchmen lead the kingdom to blight. They captured the queen by the power of law, and dragged her away with the king in awe. To the yellow lair of the dragon they went, and forced her below, never to ascend. Betrayed by his brother, forsaken by love, He screamed and grieved and moaned thereof.

Hear, hear, traveler, the tale of the land: The King now was lonely, his friends all left, his spirit was broken, his life bereft. He called upon wizards from near and far, who might calm his sadness and bring back a star? “This magic potion can turn flesh into power, but beware my king, your soul it shall devour.”

Hear, hear, traveler, the tale of the land: The Queen is dead, the king turned mad. “Give me the poison, the more the better!”, he in tears, upon reading the letter. His heart turned black as the corruption spread, he swore death to his brother, with the eye shining red. In the lands below, full of wealth and pain, lived a king, so sad, crafting soldiers from flesh and blain.

After being sprayed with link fluid

Honor the Queen, never to be seen: Her father a weapon, her mother a shield. Three brothers defiant, playing ball in the field.

Honor the Queen, never to be seen: She learned to struggle and learned to fight. But feeling the people some things were not right.

Honor the Queen, never to be seen: Everything was in order, her world was in place. Deep from within her, a voice asked why? This world we live in, could it all be a lie?

Honor the Queen, never to be seen: She went on a quest for a friend she could trust. And found a king in his land of rust.

He was gentle and kind and built toys of awe. Their love sparked a demon named envy, behold. His shadow grew taller as the tale would unfold. Honor the Queen, never to be seen.
