Nacreous Survivor is a potential Cook crew member.
"Pearly light still drips from its mantle-crest. But it has survived the Principles... and won something in the process."
Alternatively, if you chose to win the match, you can purchase him back from the Fathomking at the extreme cost of:
1 x Colossal Fluke-Core, 1 x Searing Enigma, 7 x Captivating Treasure, 7 x Scintillack
Note: If you wish to revive the Nacreous Survivor later, it is critical that you have dinner with him before finishing the Pulse of the Principles quest
|Increase your Hearts
Share an interesting truth of your own, and your officer may impress you.
"Flif your hanf on the ftool. Farphaf! Ophen your eyess."
The Outcast has gnostic secrets of profound culinary import to impart. Even its lesser revelations are enough to touch your dreams with the dread of drowning. Perhaps fortunately, it gets so excited when it talks about the greater revelations that you don't have any idea what the hell it's on about.
|Game note: Spend a Secret to improve your Hearts, unless it's higher than 150.|
|Invite it to dine with you
You'll need a suitable morsel.
|A jubilant dinner
The Survivor still struggles with human language, but its shyness, for now, is gone. It gestures widely with the fork (not long ago, it was embarrassed to pick up a fork). It speaks of its plans to visit Flute Street below London, where its relatives dwell: to bring them gifts of knowledge which will erase its crimes.
It tells you stories of travel through the void on the vast-shelled black back of a messenger thing. It shares jokes from its spawn-world, Axile. None of the jokes make any sense, but they linger on the surfaces of your thought like graffiti scrawled in a language you knew when you were very young...
|This interaction will not consume the Strange Catch. It is unclear whether this is a glitch or intended behavior.|
|Proposition the Nacreous Survivor
It bends its face. You've known it long enough to understand that this is an affectionate smile. Are you sure about this?
Flesh meets membrane. Apertures pulse. The Survivor enfolds you like a tide. The narcotic pleasures of union engulf you! Again and again, you rise to impossible spasms of unknown emotion, until you subside into a pool of mingled exudate. "Sho... sho..." the Survivor pants, its glabrous flanks heaving.
|Game note: The Survivor can only evince the proper responses in the presence of sufficient Scintillack.|
|Smile at your nacreous lover
Be discreet. Your crew would be horrified.
Game note: Opportunities for other trysts will occur while you're at sea - but not quite yet.
