- You Killed My Father: Musiea wants to kill Escher for murdering the priests that ran her orphanage. Not only is he guilty, he freely admits it. Which then gets flipped on her because the priest was selling the orphans as slaves right under her nose. Escher was hired to take care of the priest when he didn't follow through on a deal with his employers. In their own story, anyway. In Eluca's timeline Escher didn't do it, he killed the one responsible and Musiea got the wrong idea. Other routes drop the plot entirely.
