Beowulf! I had thought the joy of your embrace forever lost.
Reis and the curseEdit
Reis was engaged to the Templar Beowulf Cadmus. The two loved each other, but Reis had caught the eye of Celebrant Bremondt. Bremondt became delusional and wanted Reis to himself. Believing he could buy her love with money and gifts, he tried everything he could to get Reis to love him.
However, Reis only cared for Beowulf. Enraged, Bremondt labeled Beowulf a heretic and stripped him of his rank as captain of the Gryphon Knights of Lionel. To make sure he was out of the picture forever, Bremondt prepared a curse for Beowulf. As he cast the spell, Reis pushed Beowulf out of the way, sacrificing herself for the one she loved. When the curse took effect, Reis lost her memories and became the Holy Dragon. Confused, she started wandering Ivalice, and Beowulf went after her.
Removing the curseEdit
She finds herself in the coal mine of Mining Town of Gollund. She is threatened by a group of monsters led by Syneugh, but Beowulf arrives with Ramza Beoulve and saves her. Beowulf looks for a way to revert Reis and at Nelveska Temple, Reis, Ramza, and Beowulf defeat Construct 7 and collect the Cancer auracite. Beowulf uses it to change Reis back into a human.
When Beowulf and Reis return to Lionel, Reis laments that as long as Beowulf is a heretic, they cannot return home. Beowulf tells Reis that as long as he is with her, he will always be home. Beowulf leaves Reis to go and see if Ramza needs him. Just as Beowulf walks away, he hears Reis screaming. Running back, he sees Aliste Rosenheim, a former comrade in arms, hired by Bremondt to kidnap Reis and take her to Lionel Castle.
Beowulf takes Ramza to the castle and they fight past Aliste and make it to Bremondt. Cornered, Bremondt panics and uses his dark magick on himself, turning into a Dark Dragon. Even in this form he is no match for Ramza and Beowulf, and is killed. Beowulf finds Reis and the two are reunited. Beowulf cannot convey his appreciation for Ramza's help, and he and Reis remain with Ramza throughout his quest to defeat the Lucavi.
In Chapter 4, after witnessing an optional scene in the Clockwork City of Goug with Besrudio Bunansa, the player can go to the tavern in Mining Town of Gollund to hear to the "The Haunted Mine" rumor. In the tavern in Lesalia the player can take the coal mine job and have Beowulf join as a guest. After fighting a series of battles at the mines, the player can recruit both Beowulf and Holy Dragon Reis.
To get Reis as a Dragonkin the player must fight at Fort Besselat, buy a flower from a flower girl at the Trade City of Sal Ghidos, return to Goug for another scene Besrudio, and go to the tavern at Zeltennia Castle for the "Cursed Isle of Nevleska" rumor that opens up the route to Nelveska Temple. Winning the battle at the temple transforms Reis to the Dragonkin job.
Reis starts as a Holy Dragon, and is nearly identical to the Dragons that can be encountered as regular enemies, only able to use all three elemental breaths minus the physical techniques, such as Charge and Tail Sweep. She absorbs Holy-elemental attacks.
Transforming Reis into Dragonkin unlocks her true potential. Dragonkin is a special job all about taming dragons and using dragon powers to aid allies. Dragonkin has the highest HP, MP and Magick growth among all jobs, as well as an excellent Attack stat that surpasses even that of the Sword Saint's. The Dragonkin's impressive stat growth comes at a price: she can equip only female-exclusive equipment.
When fought in the eleventh Rendezvous battle: All-Star Melee, she is 2 levels higher than the highest level deployed unit. She starts with 62 Bravery and 64 Faith in her default Dragonkin job, equipped with a Cachusha and a Septième. She has access to the Dragon and White Magick commands, as well as the abilities First Strike, Brawler, and Move +2.
When fought in the fourteenth Rendezvous battle: Brave Story, she is level 99 and starts with 70 Bravery and Faith. She uses her default Dragonkin job, and is equipped with a Cachusha and Japa Mala. She has access to the Dragon and White Magick commands, as well as the abilities Lifefont, Dragonheart, and Arcane Strength.
