Story[edit | edit source]
Friedrich arrived at the Prontera palace with Kronecker and Nihil to meet up with Peter Heine. While waiting for the invited adventurer to meet them, a fight breaks out between him, Kronecker, and Nihil. Nihil wants to leave, seeing as he was no longer the Heine candidate for the crown and requests permission to go. Kronecker argues that it is his duty to stay and represent the family. Nihil expresses his frustration with how the family sees him as nothing, emphasizing that his given middle name meant misery. Friedrich warns Nihil to watch his words and his son storms out of the room. After Nihil leaves, Kronecker apologizes to the invited adventurer on behalf of the Heine family. Friedrich then introduces himself along with his father and Peter and apologizes for his son's behavior. Kronecker implores him to let Nihil be as they cannot take care of him since he is old enough to know better. Peter defends Nihil, asking the archduke to not be so harsh on him. He goes on to emphasize that Nihil was originally intended to be the Heine candidate for the throne, but Peter was selected even though he was a secondary member of the family. Kronecker argues that Nihil is unable to uphold the legacy of the Heine family line, yet hungers for power. Peter doesn't see it that way and thinks Nihil is simply acting out because he lost his candidacy. Kronecker no longer wished to talk about Nihil as he thought it to be improper to speak of family issues in front of the adventurer. He changes the subject to the topic of the crown and believes the next king of Rune-Midgarts will be a Heine. Friedrich brings up how Isenhardt Walter attacked the other candidates, forcing Ernst Gaebolg to execute him. It was thought that Ernst would be crowned king as a result, but he suddenly dropped out of the Royal Assembly, presumably at the request of the queen. This is why the Royal Assembly was being held again. Kronecker thinks Nihil is jealous that Peter was chosen as the Heine candidate, but Friedrich still believes that his son is a good kid despite his recent behavior.
Friedrich later appears at the Ritual of Blessing with the rest of his family. The ritual begins with Kronecker leading everyone to chant their blessings upon the chosen candidate Peter Heine.
On behalf of the seven royal families supporting Rune-Midgarts
Here is the new appointed representative
May the blessing starlight reach the glory of the earth
Please allow the power from the source to be granted for all beings
The courage to charge forward and strike the enemy
The heart to embrace everything in this world
The strong will to protect everything within reach
The intact pride of justice and faith that never bends no matter what
The virtue of looking up to others with a humble mind
And the wisdom to see the truth
Before the ritual could complete, an intruder appears and strikes down Peter. The intruder elaborates that he heard that a piece Ymir's Heart was hidden in the Room of Consciousness, but it turned out to be a fake. The adventurer and the royal families attempt to approach the intruder, but the intruder threatens that if they take another step he will destroy the fake Heart of Ymir. Kronecker is surprised that the Heart of Ymir is fake, which causes the intruder to realize that none of the royal families know where the real one is hidden if they were ignorantly carrying out the ritual with a fake. The intruder is frustrated that he wasted his time with a fake and decides to leave without causing more of a scene. However, he quickly backtracks on his word and destroys the fake Heart of Ymir. The royal families are then accosted by more intruders, but they are able to fend them off with the help of the adventurer. The intruders disappear and the royal families evacuate the ritual hall.
Friedrich encounters the adventurer back at the Heine villa where Peter was recovering from the attack. Kronecker is embarrassed by the event, but acknowledges that the adventurer was invited to observe the ritual and that he/she did help to fend off the attackers. He goes on to explain that the Heines have been looking through the royal records to find out what happened to the Heart of Ymir, but found nothing but a riddle. The adventurer reveals that he/she is aware of the riddle and Kronecker is impressed by his/her sharp eye. He admits that the only way to find out what happened is by going back to the past. Friedrich points out that Court Magician Nillem is able to travel through the dimensional crack that was discovered and that Nillem begged to be accompanied by the adventurer his/herself. Friedrich was hesitant to involve anyone else, but given that the adventurer has already seen enough, he admits he has no other choice but to trust the adventurer. The adventurer heads off to his/her room to await the court magician.
Kronecker leaves and returns to tell Friedrich about what the adventurer discovered while traveling through the dimensional crack and that the adventurer would need official permission to revisit the Royal Family Past Memories to continue to do so. Friedrich is taken aback that the original Heart of Ymir was taken by a valkyrie and agrees to give the adventurer unrestricted access to the Royal Family Past Memories.
