“ It's not like I'm goofing off! Do you know how hard it is to ensure that everyone is taking breaks? ”

Basil was a friend of the hero who lived in Razril. He was not a member of the Knights of Gaien but still played frequently with the hero, especially in his favourite game; tops.

When Razril was occupied by the Kooluk Empire, Basil managed to keep himself safe and following the island's liberation by the Headquarters Ship would volunteer to join it's crew. On board, he would spend his time entertaining others with his games. He refuted any accusation that he was lazy, countering that he was ensuring everyone was relaxed and taking proper breaks from their work. As time passed, he grew more and more comfortable with the sailing life, especially enjoying Funghi's food for the first time.

Following the Island Liberation War, Basil would spend some time on Nay Island before becoming a crew member on a merchant ship and setting sail once again.


Keen You have done well by coming here. In this room, you may confess what is in your heart and accept proper judgement.
Basil O-Okay...
Keen Would you secretly inform me about anyone onboard this ship who you think is causing problems?
Basil Let's see...Rakgi works a little too much, no? I think a kid's job is to play, don't you think?
Keen Then, would you tell me what you think of Lazlo?
Basil Lazlo, huh...I sure was surprised when he was exiled from Razril...I didn't know the details, but I heard he'd become a pirate or something like that...and I almost believed it! But it's not that I REALLY believed it! That's the truth!
Keen Finally, quietly confess the things you wish to atone for, or all the things that you are thankful for.
Basil It's not like I'm goofing off! Do you know how hard it is to ensure that everyone is taking breaks? That said, I have nothing I need to apologize for!


Basil All right! I did it!!!


Basil Whooooaaaaa!! Damn it!! Now I'm mad!!
