- Akashi: Stop! Invited guests only!
- Gozen: Who is it Akashi? Has someone else come?
- Akashi: No! They are not Jingu Clan.
- Akashi: They are outsiders. Not to be trusted.
- Gozen: Unless they look like demons, Akashi, let them pass.
- Gozen: Suspecting everyone will get us nowhere.
- Akashi: Hmph. Not all demons have horns.
(Gozen speaks in English, Akashi in Japanese)
- Gozen: You have the look, outsider,
- Gozen: of one who has peeled back the skin of the world and seen the maggots feasting beneath it.
- Gozen: You have...
- Gozen: old eyes.
- Gozen: We are the Jingu Clan, last of the onna-bugeisha bloodlines.
- Gozen: You may call me Gozen.
- Gozen: My large protector here is Akashi.
- Akashi: As if the sun needs protecting.
- Gozen: You are here because you are seeking answers.
- Gozen: You want to know who did this to Tokyo?
- Gozen: Why they did this?
- Gozen: We do not have these answers.
- Gozen: The Jingu Clan does not deal in information.
- Gozen: - we are demon slayers.
- Gozen: There are Yokai walking the streets and this is no coincidence.
- Gozen: They are drawn to strife and the walls of their world are thinnest where human misery is strongest.
- Gozen: But are they the cause of our current woes, or simply one of the effects?
- Akashi: Does the farmer ask the rat why it eats his grain?
- Akashi: No.
- Akashi: Best to eradicate vermin and ask questions later.
- Gozen: He is right. these Yokai are called Oni.
- Gozen: We have fought them before, but never more than a single clan at a time.
- Gozen: There are nine clans in Tokyo, not counting the exiles at the bathhouse.
- Gozen: Co-operation on this scale is...
- Gozen: ...unpecedented.
- Gozen: Something, or someone, powerful must be controlling them.
- Gozen: I have something to show you.
- Gozen: These are the house insignias.
- Gozen: Find all the clans and then discover what binds them.
- Gozen: Perhaps you will find the answers that you seek.
- Akashi: Free noodles for life if you return in one piece.
As you come into Susanoo's diner, Akashi is training a woman to use a sword.
- Akashi: (Japanese) Fools! Don't swing it like a hammer.
- Akashi: It has a sharp edge for a reason.
- Gozen talks to you while you watch the training.
- Gozen: He's not usually this tense.
- Gozen: Did you find what we need?
- Gozen: This much money... It doesn't surprise me that the Oni are here.
- Gozen: The demons do love their avarice.
- Gozen: Do you recognize any of the names?
- Gozen: Assassinations.
- Gozen: Somebody is cleaning up a mess.
- Gozen: The real question is whether it is their own mess.
- Gozen: The more time that passes, the harder it will be for you to find your answers.
- Gozen: There is one source that might provide you with more information, but it will be...
- Gozen: ...distasteful.
- Gozen: One of the Oni, Inbeda-
- Upon hearing the name Inbeda, Akashi talks to Gozen (in Japanese, and she replies as well).
- Akashi: Do we consort with demons now, Mistress?
- Akashi: Do we betray our sacred trust and dishonor our ancestors?
- Gozen: Are you the master of this Clan now?
- Gozen: Do you wish to speak for the clan?
- Akashi: You are putting the Clan in danger.
- Akashi: For a memory. For a love lost-
- Gozen: Enough!
- Gozen: Get back into your kitchen, boy.
- Gozen: You lack the discipline and humility of your ancestors.
- Gozen: Go!
- Gozen turns her attention back to you.
- Gozen: Talk to Inbeda at the bathhouse, but don't let your guard down.
- Gozen: Dealing with demons is a tricky business.
- Gozen: I have some apologies to make.
