Story[edit | edit source]

SPOILER WARNING: Plot and/or ending details follow.

Jurgen meets with the appraisal adventurer and expresses his confidence in becoming the next ruler of Rune-Midgarts. He is later accosted by Isenhardt Walter out of nowhere, who insults him aggressively. When the Royal Assembly took place, Ernst Gaebolg resigned his candidacy and no king was chosen.[2]

When the Royal Assembly was called forth again, Jurgen travels back to the Prontera palace with his family. There, he is surrounded by his admirers, who had to be restrained from his family's villa by extra guards. He appears before the invited adventurer when his parents sought him out and quickly excuses himself in order to not say anything wrong in front of his mother. He continues to talk to the adventurer out of earshot of his parents and expresses that if he were to make any mistakes in front of his mother, he would be scolded as he respects his mother very much. He then introduces his sister Katrin and little brother Isaac to the adventurer. Isaac expresses that the adventurer must be troubled to have to visit such a boring family as theirs, to which Katrin is quick to chastise him for making both her and Jurgen look bad in front of the adventurer. Isaac counters that it was simply a joke to lighten the dreary atmosphere. Katrin still doesn't think it's funny and apologizes to the adventurer for Isaac's poor humor. Jurgen changes the subject and exclaims that he wants to go home as soon as they can as he finds the palace villa small and restricting. Katrin then turns her attention to Jurgen for insulting the Royal Assembly with his selfish desires. Seeing that she was powerless to do anything about her hopeless brothers, Katrin encourages the adventurer to have tea with their parents as they would love to hear the adventurer's stories.

While the adventurer was talking with Louviere Wigner and Catherine Wigner, Katrin cries out in distress. Jurgen tries to calm her down and ask her if she was sure if it was indeed missing. Katrin swears that she put it down on a nightstand after talking to the adventurer earlier. The adventurer returns and inquires about the box and Katrin explains that she had lost a jewelry box that contained something important to her. She had taken it out of her bag and placed it on the nightstand before it disappeared out of nowhere. She becomes distraught at the thought that someone has taken it. Jurgen suspects it could be the maid that came into the room to clean it earlier, but Katrin promptly chastises him for being so quick to accuse someone of theft. The adventurer agrees that they should at least ask the maid even if she is not suspicious. Katrin pleads with the adventurer to not interrogate the maid as she doesn't want the maid to become upset at being suspected. Jurgen reasons that if the jewelry box is that important to her, then they have no choice but to inquire the only other person that might have seen it. The adventurer promises to be as polite to the maid as possible, but Katrin still doesn't feel very good about doing it. Jurgen implores Katrin to trust the adventurer and Katrin reluctantly agrees, although she hopes to find it herself and decides to search other places. Jurgen hopes that the adventurer is able to track down the jewelry box, as he doesn't want their father to scold his sister.

The adventurer returns some time later and reports to Jurgen that everyone who has entered the room have seen it on the nightstand, but no one saw it getting taken. Jurgen wonders about asking the one who has taken it and then doubles back as he realizes that whoever took the jewelry box wouldn't admit to it. The adventurer brings up the fact that a lot of people are suspicious of his sister because of how popular he is among the people. They believe she may have made up the story of the missing jewelry box in order to get attention. Jurgen couldn't believe that such rumors were being circulated and exclaims that this is why he keeps trying to get her to be more friendly to others. Just then, Katrin appears and asks why she should care about people that don't know her very well. She asks Jurgen if it's her fault that people spread unsavory rumors about her and Jurgen responds that she is partly to blame for her reputation being the way it is. Katrin doubts that people like Jurgen for his attitude and reminds him about the trouble he caused during the previous Royal Assembly because of his narcissistic attitude. Jurgen becomes confused at why people adore him if it was not his personality that they liked. Katrin tells him to take a guess and Jurgen correctly assumes it's because of his looks. Katrin then begins railing about how everyone always treat him well despite his bad attitude because of how handsome he looks. Jurgen counters back that it's not like he wanted people to judge him by his looks and Katrin expresses how she has always been compared to her handsome brother, even when she hasn't done anything wrong. Jurgen emphasizes that it's imperative that she opens up and talk to other people so she could also be well-liked, but Katrin believes being silent is better because silence doesn't cause issues. Jurgen then points out that mentality is what caused the bad rumors about her to circulate. In frustration, Katrin exclaims that she's already doing her best and the adventurer tries to calm the both of them down.

Just then, Isaac appears and says that Jurgen and Katrin were arguing so loudly that he could hear them outside down the hall. He reminds the both of them that they have a reputation to maintain as representatives of the Wigner family, pointedly telling Jurgen that he's already lost the throne so he shouldn't make things worse. He then presents Katrin's jewelry box to her, explaining that he had taken it because there were too many people in the room and he didn't want it to get lost. Katrin then chastises him for taking the box without telling her, to which Isaac thought it unfair for her to punish him when he took the box for her sake. If their parents—especially their father—found out that Katrin had lost her jewelry box, Katrin would be scolded for it and Isaac didn't want that to happen. Jurgen asks Katrin what was in the box that was so important and Katrin reveals that she keeps personal notes in the box like a diary. She feels that it's the only way for her to express herself in her silence, but realizes that it hasn't done much good for her. She then excuses herself and leaves with her jewelry box.

After Katrin disappears, Isaac wonders what was all the fuss about and Jurgen explains everything to him. Isaac blames the bad rumors about their sister on Jurgen as he felt it was his responsibility as the candidate representative of the Wigners. Jurgen is surprised that Isaac is also aware of that, but never told him either. Isaac counters that Jurgen wouldn't have taken his words to heart if he had told him as he had always been treated well by everyone. He had also been treated less fortunately like their sister because of Jurgen. Jurgen feels ashamed that his siblings were being compared to him all their lives and that he was oblivious to their suffering the entire time until now.

Seeing that Jurgen is finally on the same page with them, Isaac turns their attention to what can be done to make their sister feel better. Jurgen recalls that their sister had gotten mad at him once and Isaac remembers that as well. Unsure of what to do, Jurgen asks the adventurer for ideas and the adventurer wonders what usually quells their sister's anger. Isaac insists that he shouldn't have to do anything as it wasn't his fault that their sister is mad at them, but Jurgen points out that the whole mess started with him taking Katrin's box in the first place. The adventurer suggests either waiting until Katrin calms down or give her something that she likes. Jurgen and Isaac are at a loss as to what would please their sister, a startling revelation of how poor their sibling relationship is. The adventurer notes that Katrin is likely to value experiences and memories due to her keeping a diary, which triggers a memory for Jurgen of walking around Comodo Beach together gathering stones on the shore and in one of the caves. Isaac also recalls Katrin collecting Sea Stones and storing them in her room. The adventurer asks what Sea Stones are and Jurgen explains that they're special stones that look like the sea inside of them. The three of them would often dig them up whenever they went on summer vacation to Comodo. Isaac heard that they can't be found on the beach in recent days, but they could still be collected from the Medusas inside one of the Comodo caves. He had tried to spread them all over the world, but because they became hard to come by, he gave up on that plan. Jurgen also recalls that Katrin collected some flowers along with the stones; flowers that didn't decay like other flowers. The adventurer suspects that it may be Witherless Roses, which Isaac couldn't believe actually exists. He figures just replacing it with another flower is good enough, but the adventurer points out that if you keep replacing the flower, then it wouldn't be the same flower that was originally liked anymore. Isaac then wonders when the adventurer would collect the stones and rose for them, to which the adventurer exclaims in surprise. Isaac responds that they cannot collect the items themselves as Isaac has business to attend to and Jurgen attracts too much attention with his looks; the adventurer is the only one who can do the job. The adventurer reluctantly agrees and heads off.

The adventurer returns some time later with the Sea Stones and Witherless Rose in hand. Isaac calls Katrin over and the three Wigner siblings resolve their differences with each other. With their relationship mended, they give their thanks to the adventurer and offer to help him/her any way they can in the future.[3]

Jurgen 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.[4]

Some time later, Jurgen encounters the adventurer again at the Wigner villa. While catching up with the adventurer, the two of them were interrupted by a maid trying to clean the villa. The maid is surprised to see the villa was occupied and tries to leave, but Jurgen insists that the maid continue her work despite there being people around. The maid excuses herself again and manages to disappear from the villa despite Jurgen's protests. Once the maid was gone, a strange feeling washed over him and he expresses to the adventurer that he has fallen in love with the maid. He wanted to pursue her, but couldn't due to the fact that it was hard for him to wander around the palace without attracting attention. He implores the adventurer to send a letter and jewelry to the maid for him as tokens of affection. The adventurer reluctantly agrees and heads out of the villa towards the palace kitchen.

When the adventurer returns, Jurgen is downtrodden to learn that the maid refused his gifts. He figures he should try again and asks the adventurer to give the maid a gift of a Witherless Rose and some Sea Stones. If she refuses again, then he will give up on the endeavor. The adventurer leaves again.

The next time Jurgen meets the adventurer, he sees that the adventurer has come back empty-handed. He asks if the maid has finally accepted his love and the adventurer explains that the maid didn't say no for now, but that Jurgen should give time for the relationship to build up. This fills Jurgen with hope and he asks the adventurer to send gifts to the maid every day for him so she won't forget him.[5]
