When the characters look around in the shop, they see many strange items, such as a tremor skull and a Sky Titan tooth, which is about 3 times as big as Vale. The old man thanks them for their help and gives them, as he calls it, "friendship reminders". Which constist of 4 bracelets for each main character; a red, yellow, white and purple one. Vale questions the shopkeeper why one of the bracelets is purple, feeling suspicious that the bracelets refer to their scale color, and Vale himself being a purple dragon, but the mystery man ignores him. The main characters and the shopkeeper leave the store, as they go outside the old man tells them that many don't believe in the truth behind fairy tales, such as Golden Era anymore.
