"There's a fool lad who wants to be a fighter like me. This is a wretched, dangerous trade, gods' truth, an' I wish I could dissuade 'im..." —


Arena Aspirations is a side story in Octopath Traveler. The tale begins by speaking to the Listless Gladiator at Victors Hollow, south of the Tavern.

Use the Inquire or Scrutinize Path Action to glean Father and Fighter from the Doting Aunt West of the Listless Gladiator.

The tale ends once the gleaned information is shared with the Listless Fighter.

The fighter learned that the boy's father had also been a swordsman, and tried to be the father figure the poor lad lost.

Alternate: Use the Challenge or Provoke Path Action to duel the Listless Gladiator.

The tale ends once the Listless Gladiator is defeated.

The young man saw his favored swordsman lose in battle, strengthening his resolve to study healing as an apothecary.
