As I mentioned, after the fight Alistair reveled that this “Oni” appeared to not be like the real historical Oni, but like the ones from a popular work of fiction, the “Oni Cronicles” I didn’t really explain how this happened though.
When Alistair arrives he sees the dead “Oni” and gets a servent to fetch a Nihonese scholar he knows. The scholar examines the body and shows that it is like an Oni from the “Oni Chronicles”, not like the real Oni which were driven to extinction over 100 years ago. The Oni Chronicles is a popular work of fiction which is read mos comonly in Ivalice, although it is a work of fiction it is written as a historical account and many undecuated people think that it is actually true.
The scholar compares this book to Nihonese millitary records, and bases his conclusions on several facts:
1) The “Oni” lookes exactly like one pictured in the Oni Chrincles, but does not match the sketches in the records.
2) The Oni breathed through holes in their sides, like insects do. Thsi creature however has lungs ( he has a preserved sample of an Oni breathing organ to show you for comparison)
3) If you mention that it spoke to you, he will tell you that the historical Oni were never able to speak. Unlike the ones in the book which did.
After this, Alistair suggests that this should be kept quit until you figure out what is going on, and offers to sponsor you (the party) to go figure this out.
We will start the second session here, you will have a chance to ask both Alistiar and the scholar any questions you want…
