(While approaching Stormterror's Lair)
Paimon: Looks like this is the front gate to Stormterror's Lair.
Paimon: The gate is enormous compared to us... But still, Paimon wonders how Dvalin gets in there with a body that huge?
Venti: He doesn't walk in, he flies in.
Paimon: ...Oh. Hmm, you do have a point.
(At the entrance)
Paimon: It's stuck.
Venti: It's stuck.
Paimon: Hey, check out that roof. Is there a giant hole in it?
Venti: Hmm... I suppose we could make use of that wind current.
Paimon: Let's make a detour then. Heading up!
Venti: Let's make a detour then. Heading up!
Paimon: Hmm... Do you think there will be Abyss Mages hiding in the ruins?
Paimon: Either way, if we do run into one, we will let the victorious Master Diluc do the—
Diluc: Do not underestimate them just because I have beaten one of them before.
Diluc: I'm not boasting. I'm simply saying there is more to the Abyss Order than a few mages.
Venti: Correct. That's why I tagged along, after all.
Venti: Well, that — and also for your safety.
Venti: Ah, why am I so diligent? Too diligent for a poet, in fact!
Paimon: So says the person that made zero effort to search for the dragon tears and drank in the tavern all day!
Paimon: Paimon doesn't get it, what part of you is remotely diligent?
(When approaching the wind current)
Paimon: Look! A wind current.
Paimon: It might lead us to the top of the tower.

(At the top of Stormterror's Lair)
Venti: Oh, we can't advance any further. The ruins seem to be guarded by ancient seals.
Paimon: Is this the work of Dvalin?
Venti: No. These ruins were once part of an ancient city. Dvalin just happens to be nesting in these ruins for now.
Venti: These ruins even predate the existence of The Four Winds.
Venti: Mondstadt is a city without a ruler. However, before it was,
Venti: It was ruled over by a tyrant.
Venti: Anyway... I'll sing you that story when we have a chance in the future.
Diluc: The markings on this seal... If my archaeological knowledge is not mistaken, this appears to be a light actuator.
Diluc: If we retrieve and reintegrate all the parts, we should be able to get it working.
Jean: We should be close to completing the ceremony for this actuator.
Jean: Let's put the last part back and see.
