What is Courage?! is a quest in Xenoblade Chronicles. It can be received from Ewan in the Reconstruction HQ of Colony 6. If Sharla is in the active party, she will comment. Once this quest is completed, Matryona's Answer will be available.
- "Head in the direction of the Ether Mine or Satorl Marsh and protect Ewan from harm."
- "Speak to Ewan."
"The adventure helped build his courage and now he's ready to confess his love to Matryona."
The quest can be completed in two ways, by going to Ether Mine or to Satorl Marsh.
- A Route: In the Ether Mine, Ewan can be found in Glowmoss Lake. The Unique Monster Elegant Marin must be defeated.
- B Route: In Satorl Marsh, Ewan can be found just east of the Glowing Obelisk, but at a higher level. He can be reached by travelling through the Soter Ruins, then crossing the natural bridge above the ether crystal deposit, then going west. The Quest Exclusive Enemy Hungry Volff must be defeated.
There are no differences in the outcome of choosing either way.
- Sharla: "That sounds dangerous, Ewan. It's no walk in the park outside of the colony."
- Ewan: "Don't you think I know that?! But I have to go. When I face a terrible beast, I'll face it as a man. Then I'll have the courage to give Matryona my book."
- Sharla: "Matryona isn't a monster. She won't bite your head off!"
- Ewan: "Well... I understand that. But if she rejects me it'll be worse than being eaten alive."
