Interactions[edit | edit source]
|Invite her to dine with you
...and talk about why she came to zee at all.
|A matter of philosophy
She smiles coyly. "'Why?' is the question with the longest tale. You wanted me here, didn't you? But why did you want me here? Perhaps you remembered something about me - something about our business dealings, or about a certain business in Vienna - "

|A place of pillars
She excuses herself from eating. "My stomach is a little unsettled. The motion of the zee, I think... well, honestly, I've always wanted to see Irem. I do hope we'll travel that way. I know it's not a common destination. But what a place! All the glories of the horizon - "
Your head spins. Perhaps you've spent too long below deck. You excuse yourself and stagger upstairs to get some air.
|Increase your Hearts
"I can advise you, certainly. But let's talk about what you already know."
|A closer understanding
She smiles warmly: she pats your hand. "There, you see? You know as much as I do. If not more. I'm just glad I could lend an ear."

|Ask her to stay with you...
...to stave off the night's cold. You are shivering. Perhaps you're fevered. But she glows with warmth.
You fumble awake through a thick haze of dried dreams. Someone was here with you, last night: but there's only one plate on the cabin table. Your hands tremble. You're weak and desperately thirsty. What happened here? Perhaps nothing at all, perhaps only the endless phantasms of the Unterzee. You clutch at memories. They slip away like wet driftwood.

|Who do you mean?
The Daughter looks around, bewildered. And, indeed, the Lady in Lilac isn't there.
|A long silence

At last, the Daughter croaks uncertainly: "...Mother?"
