Dear Zell,

I heard about your recent promotion. SeeD rank 26 must be a great commendation! Be sure that you don't go overextending yourself now, understand? It's one thing to be high-ranking, it's another to be indefatigable. Make sure you get enough sleep and good food, not too many of those hot dogs. You have to set an example for the younger children.

Your uncle finally decided that he should send you a present for your big mission last year-he says that it's a fine thing for a rookie like you were to be entrusted with a job that immense. I would just as soon they had picked some older SeeD to do it-folk like us have no business toying around with things like time travel. Anyway, your uncle is sending you a pair of old fighting gloves-he says that they should be much more durable than those store-issue Ehrgiez that you use.

Did I tell you that your uncle has come to stay with me for a while? He'll be here for about a month on long vacation, and he'd like to see you sometime. He's brought along Handy, his cat. He's also brought a new pet for us: a dog named Terrier (it's a Great Dane, really). But, oh, what fun that cat had with our pantry! I swear, he could smell the fish from a kilometer away.

Zell, I hope that you're keeping yourself safe. I want you to write me back soon, do you hear? And say hello to all of your friends for me-especially that young Kyra girl. Bring your friends over to eat sometime if you have the chance. I would love to see you again.

Will all the love in my heart,
Ma Dincht

Tell uncle thanx 4 the gloves! Theyre pretty good. I didn't get a chance to fight with them yet, but I'll take them to the Training center. I don't think that the gang'll be able to come for dinner-they're pretty busy. Write me back!

Dear Zell,

I do wish that you'd take a bit more time while writing your letters! At least bother to spell things correctly. How long have I told you to spell things out?

I hope your studies are going well. You uncle has offered to come and teach you a bit about Galbadian history, especially about the Dollet region where he works. You might want to take up the offer-you know your uncle used to be a schoolteacher.

Your uncle wanted to check and see if he could bring Terrier up to visit you. Are pets allowed in Garden?

We were thinking of spending a few days in Timber. Do you think you might be able to join us? I believe one of your friends lives there. "Rinoa," wasn't that her name? Write me back promptly, now! Find out if you have any vacation time.

With all the love in my heart,
Ma Dincht

I'd love to go to Timber and see Rinoa! But I have a mission coming up and I cant skip it. I hope that you two have a lotta fun, tho!

Tell Uncle that I don't need help in history since I'm not taking and of the SeeD classes and I graduated from the cadet classes. If he gets calculus, then he can help!

Pets aren't allowed here. But I wanna come home and see the dog sometime!

Thanx!

Dear Zell,

What kind of mission is this? You know that I always like to know about your assignments. I hope it's not too dangerous! Lord knows that I could never sleep knowing that you might be in danger. When do you leave on the mission? Where is it? Is there anything your uncle or I can do to help?

I burned the casserole earlier this evening. I don't think that Terrier minded-and he's the one that got most of it. Your uncle just laughed it off and took me out to eat. Have you ever been to Balamb's seaside restaurant? Your uncle has offered to take you. Call me when you get back from your mission, and we can go to celebrate.

With all the love in my heart,
Ma Dincht

I can't write much now cuz I have to leave on the mission soon, and it's classified so I can't tell you about it, but we'll go out to eat when I get back! Don't worry, it's an easy mission. I'll see you soon!

Zell

Dear Zell,

I am certain that your mission could not last this long! Why haven't you written me? I know it's a pain to write your old mother all the time, but I want to hear from you! How did your mission go? I hope that no one was hurt. Were you successful?

Terrier got out once and terrorized the city for a bit, but we got him back with a bit of meat. That dog is a regular imp! He's quite the scoundrel, not unlike you when you were younger. You would have so much fun playing with him!

I should write more, but if I want this to be delivered today I need to put it out now. I hope that you will write to me soon!

With all the love in my heart,
Ma Dincht

Dear SeeD Relation,

We are saddened to inform you that SeeD 41270, Zell Dincht, has gone missing on his latest assignment. SeeD protocol allows up to three weeks active searching and personnel recovery beginning tomorrow, a period ending February 21 of this year, and it is our sincerest hope that he may be found in this time.

If there is anything that either I or the staff can do for you, please do not hesitate to inform us.

Dear Ms. Xu,

I would like very much to know the details of the mission on which my son was sent. I was under the assumption that, although classified, it would be an "easy" assignment. Please provide me with the mission orders and reports at your first convenience.

Thank you,

Dear Headmaster Kramer,

I am writing to you under the advice of my brother. I have a son in your organization, Zell Dincht, SeeD ID 41270, whom I have been informed has recently gone missing. As I am sure that you can understand, I would like to know the detail of the mission during which he disappeared. My family and I are very concerned as to what has happened! I have contacted your administration, but they can provide me with no information until six months have elapsed! Needless to say, this is ridiculous. As Zell's mother, I demand the right to the information concerning my son! I am sure that you would do the same in my position.

Thank you,

Dear Headmaster Kramer,

I thank you for sending me the records, but I think you may have misunderstood me. I would like to see the report (which, I believe, the commanding SeeD is required to turn in) of the mission and to know exactly what has happened to my son. If it is not too much of an imposition, I would like to be forwarded this information, along with the current status of the search for my son.

Thank you,

I have heard nothing but excellent reports of you from my son and other sources, and I would like you to know that I do not hold you in any way responsible for my son's disappearance.

Dear Headmaster Kramer,

I simply do not care at this point about SeeD protocol! I have a son who has been missing for a prolonged time, and whom you seem to be unable to locate! If I cannot know where he is, I dearly wish to know how he disappeared. I am certain that a man of your good conscience would be able to find it within his heart to provide the materials needed to comfort in some degree a distraught mother.

Please do your best to find a way around this troublesome protocol.

Thank you,

I've been trying to find out what's going on for weeks now! I swear, Zell Dincht, SeeD is the most complicated system I have ever in my life run across. I have not had one bit of luck in determining your location since I was informed of your disappearance!

Take care of yourself, now. I do hope that you are not injured in any way.
