- Speak to General Hayao and formally accept Sousuke's oath of fealty.
- "You're the one I've been searching for! I'm glad I found you. General Hayao wanted news of your travels to carry back to Cantha. I volunteered for the job! I know you've been through a lot, but I think I can help you in the future. While you're making your report, do you mind asking General Hayao if I can join your service? I know he'd let me if you asked personally."
- Accept: "You seem a useful fellow."
- Reject: "I've already got so many friends it feels like I'm herding cats."
- When asked about quest: "Did you ask General Hayao? Did he say yes? I'm so nervous!"
- "Sousuke? He is a fine Elementalist... and a better friend. I'm certain he will make a good companion. Just be sure to tell him where to point those fireballs... he can get a little overexcited. Good luck."
