We're here. This is Rivet Town... *sigh* Everything looks familiar...

Seele
Let's go, and watch your step. I haven't been here in a long time. There are probably some monsters around.
Seele
Seele
We can't see anything here... Let's find higher ground to get a better view.

Find a vantage point for observation

According to Natasha, there may still be remaining medical supplies in the abandoned Rivet Town. The mission for you and Seele is to retrieve the supplies and deplete them of their final value... Erm, to let them shine and be useful in the clinic.
You arrive at the entrance of the mining town. Although this place looks to be completely desolate, in reality, Fragmentum monsters have been dwelling here for quite some time. This is a dangerous place.
It'd be best to make observations and plan out your route before making your way in.

There's a bunch of crates piled over there. Maybe we can find what we're looking for.

Seele
Watch out for monsters. They like to hide. If you need to, clear the area before you dig for the supplies.

Search for the supplies, go to the market square

According to Natasha, there may still be remaining medical supplies in the abandoned Rivet Town. The mission for you and Seele is to retrieve the supplies and deplete them of their final value... Erm, to let them shine and be useful in the clinic.
Seele believes that the supplies Natasha is after are likely to be stocked up in the town's market square. Why don't you head over there and take a look?
Seele
Seele
...
Seele
Seele
Darn, how could they all be empty? Now even the monsters are gathering supplies?
Bronya
Bronya
The monsters of the Fragmentum don't need any materials we humans use. And if they did take anything, this place would look much messier...
Seele
Seele
You mean that someone else got here and took everything before us?
Bronya
Bronya
It's just a guess, but there are also some footprints on the ground here.
Seele
Seele
*sniff* The scent of dirt is still fresh. They can't have come too long before us.
Seele
Seele
Let's go then. We need to find something, even if we have to search every corner of this market.

Look for missing supplies on the market square

You come to the market square only to find the crates for medical supplies looted empty.
The looter, however, seems too gentle for creatures in the Fragmentum, judging by what happened at the scene...
Bronya and Seele have arrived at the scene and both of them think that this does not look like something that monsters would do.
The perpetrator is likely to still be in the vicinity. Join Seele in her search on the square and leave no stone unturned!

From a young age, my mother taught me to be forgiving and to preserve the goodwill in people's hearts... Even if I am but a small glimmer of light in this world, I must try my best to shine brightly for others.

But when...?

Find the way to the orphanage

You discover that the culprit who robbed the supplies is a young thief named Eric. Bronya's generosity has compelled her to make the decision of trading with the thief for the supplies, even though Seele finds him to be untrustworthy.
In return for Bronya's friendliness, Eric shares relevant intel regarding the orphanage with everyone. But does this mean that he will change his ways? The answer is unknown โ€” however, maybe you will have the opportunity to witness it sometime in the future.
Right now, your primary objective is to head to the orphanage and continue your search for the supplies.

Oh! It looks like there's a lot of stuff piled outside. Let's go see if there's any rubbing alcohol for Nat.

Go to the orphanage and search for the supplies

You finally find your way through the complex roads of Rivet Town and discover the path to the orphanage. As you make your way uphill, you can see the luxurious mansions that overlook the town, watching its every move each and every day.
You see that Seele's expression has turned complex, but what's more confusing is that Bronya seems to be having the same emotions...

Search for supplies in the orphanage

You arrive at the orphanage entrance and have somewhat understood what's bothering Bronya โ€” although it's just speculation, she might have lived here in the past...
Anyways, first search this place for the supplies that Natasha wants.

We've looked everywhere but here... I hope my memory is right.

Great, and it's barely damaged! Nat wouldn't have expected her old supplies from years ago to have stayed in such good condition.

You should still check the expiration date for things like rubbing alcohol. If it's expired, it won't be effective.

Search for supplies around the orphanage

You naturally find the supplies, Bronya naturally finds the item to prove her past, and Seele naturally feels very shocked about all of this.
The two who almost became childhood friends naturally go for a trip down the memory lane and begin a very long and deep conversation...
Although you would really like to ask them when they became such great friends that share all their secrets with one another, would you be able to bring yourself to disturb the rare peace in front of you?
You couldn't. So you decide to venture further around the orphanage to search for the supplies...

Ask Clara why she's here

You've had the feeling that someone has gotten to the supplies before you but you didn't think it'd be someone that you were close with.
Okay, maybe not that close... but you've at least met her before โ€” you're technically family to Clara now.
So what is cute Clara doing alone (with a robot) in such a dangerous place? You have to get to the bottom of this.
Seele

...Why are you helping the vagrants look for medicine? If they're so great, how could they make a little girl go around running errands for them?
Clara
Clara
Nโ€”No, it's not like that. I wasn't made to do anything... It's just that, the living conditions for the vagrants aren't great. There's not even a clinic in their camp. So, I wanted to help them out.

Also, not all of them are bad people... everyone just wants to survive.

You've had the feeling that someone has gotten to the supplies before you but you didn't think it'd be someone that you were close with.
Okay, maybe not that close... but you've at least met her before โ€” you're technically family to Clara now.
Seele and Bronya finally end their conversation and approach the two of you just as you are asking Clara about her reason for being here.
Perfect timing, now it's time for everyone to figure out what to do next.
