Just started a new playthrough after not touching it for a couple of years.....

Did the Hunter's Guild mission to find Rocky the dog.

Why does Chaz feel that something bad is going to happen when he is called "mister" by the little girl?

Is there something lost in translation? Maybe anyone who read the original Japanese script can tell.

That'd be my guess. Something that makes sense in Japanese superstition.

Another awkward translation bit is this:

It could just be that Chaz, still being a teenager, finds being called "mister" unsettling in its implications of how old he looks. Japanese culture is obsessed with staying young, after all.

I just thought being called mister is a way of being addressed as an authority figure, and Chaz really is a reluctant leader. Like Jon Snow.

...well, Chaz does know nothing for pretty much the whole game...

omg what could Jon Snow do with an Ice Digger? I would watch that.

Nevertheless, she persisted.
