Happy Birthday Cutscenes
# Link Text

Happy birthday. What matters most is that you've safely ushered in another year.
You have a tendency to worry too much about others at the expense of yourself, after all... So it goes.
But you've got a first-class agent like myself to help you make it to the next one!
Is there any better birthday present?


Happy birthday! I'm pleased as punch to be celebrating your special day with you again, (Captain)!
Say. I thought I saw Ardora hand you a letter earlier.
Mind if I, ah, take a look at it too?
You... you won't let me?


Happy birthday! Looks like it's as festive as ever!
I suppose my beloved Aldora will depart from her nest one day just the same.
It's no doubt something to be proud of as a parent, but I can't imagine how lonely I'll be when it happens.
I will have no regret if she can find a worthy purpose in life and continue to strive toward that goal.


Happy birthday! I heard Ardora gave you a present.
Mm, a hand-drawn picture of the three of us, eh? She captured your likeness well, (Captain). Sniff...
(Captain)... I don't ever want to see Ardora sad, so take good care of yourself.
You're in good hands! With us two around, you won't even get a scratch!


Happy birthday, (Captain)! You're gonna love your present this year... It's a trip with me and Ardora!
Hahaha, don'tcha love it? Ardora came up with the idea.
Don't hesitate to let us know where you wanna go, (Captain)!
'Cause I'll gladly take you anywhere you want! Might as well take advantage of the opportunity!
Think of it as a chance to rest up and be better prepared for the challenges tomorrow. Well? Have a destination in mind yet?
Haha! I guess you wouldn't know being asked out of the blue! How 'bout you think on it while the three of us get something to eat?

Happy New Year Cutscenes
# Link Text

Happy New Year! We're gonna reach the end of the skies come hell or high water this year!
You don't need to worry about a thing. You've got a first-rate agent on your side!


I want to check out the fireworks, but the crowds!
Ardora, sweetie! Hold on to Daddy's hand now!
Wait, what? Ardora, why are you holding onto (Captain)'s hand?


Happy, happy New Year!
Yeah, yeah, here's your New Year's money!
Don't let it go to waste!
Huh? You want me to stop treating you like a kid?
You're always overworking yourself. No problem with taking it easy like a kid on New Year's Day.


Hey, (Captain)! Did you come to stuff your face with mochi?
Right now Ardora's whipping up a storm in the kitchen.
Oh, my darling Ardora! No one makes mochi as good as you!
I just know you're gonna love her mochi, (Captain). All her hard work gives it an extra flavor boost!


Well, if it ain't (Captain)! Sorry, but I'm in a rush!
Ardora was saying she wanted to play battledore, so I got the equipment out of storage!
We're playing with the rule that the winner gets to draw all over the loser's face! So don't be surprised if you see my face covered in ink later!
Think you can go a round with her later, (Captain)? Just so you know, she's really good at battledore... Oh, gotta run!
Ardoraaa! Papa's coming!

Valentine's Day Cutscenes
# Link Text

Happy Valentine's!
Ardora gave me some chocolates! My little girl's a-growin' up!
Then I start thinking about her giving chocolates to some bum she met somewhere... Sob...


Happy Valentine's! Oh, are these chocolates for me?
Sorry to make you waste your time on an old dad like me! I hope you've got something real special for the guy you're actually interested in!
Huh? Hey, quit making fun of me!


Ah, right. Today's Valentine's.
So you got me chocolate this year too, huh?
I'll be sure to enjoy them with Ardora.
Thanks a bunch!


Hey, (Captain)! You brought me chocolates again! Many thanks as always!
Hm, wait a minute here... These look like chocolates meant for kids. There are rabbit-shaped ones, cats, and a bunch of others.
Oh, I see. You picked out cute ones that Ardora and I could eat together.
You really thought of everything this year, (Captain)...
What's that, Ardora? You want to eat the chocolates with (Captain) too?
Well then. I guess you'll be joining us too, eh?


(Captain), what adorable chocolates you've given me this year! I can't wait to share these with Ardora—
Huh? You made these with her? You mean Ardora can make chocolate now?
Sniff... I wish you'd told me the good news sooner...
Then again, maybe these sorts of surprises are what make Valentine's interesting.
Ardora, my baby, you're growing up... I can't thank you enough, (Captain)!

White Day Cutscenes
# Link Text

Happy White Day! This right here is an expression of my gratitude. It's yours!
You've taken such good care of Ardora and the others after all.
I'm probably the bigger pain to look after though. Right? I expect great things from you, (Captain)!


This is payback for Valentine's.
I put it together with a little help from Ardora! It's straight from me... to you!


Ah! There you are, (Captain)!
Here, this is in return for Valentine's.
Well? What do you think?
So you like 'em! Hah, glad to hear it!
If it's got your seal of approval, then Aldora's bound to like it too!
Oh hey, don't get the wrong idea now! I made sure to choose something you'd enjoy first and foremost!


And here we are! One present in return for the one you gave me on Valentine's Day!
I went all-in picking these sweets out, so you'd better enjoy them!
Hm? What do you mean these are more grown-up than the ones I give to Ardora?
Don't be ridiculous. I obviously chose ones that you'd like best.
Ardora is Ardora, and you are you.


(Captain)! You can bet I'm ready to show my appreciation for last month!
You know how you and Ardora made chocolates together for me?
Well, this time, Ardora and I teamed up to pick out chocolates that'd suit your tastes.
At the shop, she was like, "I nyow bwetter! Leeb it choo me, Papi!"
I think you'll find yourself very satisfied with the package we picked out, (Captain)!

Trick or Treat Cutscenes

Happy Halloween! Hmm? You're going to go get candy too?
Oh, okay! I'll bring Ardora and be the responsible parent for everyone!


Oh, (Captain)! Nice costume! I can see you really put a lot of work into that!
Looks good on you!
Can't beat my cute little sweetie-pie Ardora though!


Oh my, what an adorable little ghost!
(Psst, try to act scared when she jumps at us!)
(Ardora spent hours making this costume!)
Eep! Please don't play any tricks on me or my captain, dear ghost!
(C'mon, (Captain)! Stop laughing and hand her some candy already!)


Hold it right there, (Captain). That costume you've got in your hands looks just like Ardora's!
You mean she asked you to dress up to match her costume?
No, no... That doesn't add up. I didn't hear anything about this...
Oh, so that's how it is. She's keeping it a secret in order to surprise me.
I see, I see. Guess I'll have to show off my acting chops!


You gotta hear this, (Captain)—it's about my daughter. She... She's gonna make a costume for me!
She's got this papier-mache mask made in my likeness! You wouldn't believe how well-crafted it is! It's really something else!
You'll help out by giving her a piggyback ride and wearing full-body papier-mache? Sounds neat!
She'll get to be the same height as me! Love the idea. With a piggyback ride though...
It might be a bit of a challenge to pull off, but I trust you to pull it off, (Captain). Especially since it's for Ardora!
It'll be our Agielba Legion that fills the streets with treats this year, (Captain)!
Ardora! Papi'll be wight wit yoo!

Happy Holidays Cutscenes
# Link Text

Happy holidays!
I can't hold all these presents I got for Ardora!
Sorry to bug you, but could you help me carry them?


Enjoying the festivities, (Captain)?
What's this? You got a present for Ardora too?
Thanks! Let's take a look here...
Wait. Wait, wait, wait! This does not suit my daughter!
Seriously, (Captain). A pink dress? This does not bring out her eyes!


Yo, (Captain)! Here's my holiday gift to you. Take it already.
I picked it out with Ardora. Pretty neat, huh?
Isn't she just the greatest kid you've ever seen! If only you knew how much she dotes on you...
Grr... I must admit I'm a bit jealous...


I'll pass on dinner and drinks, (Captain). It's straight to bed tonight.
Do you know what Ardora said to me? She said she's going to be my Santa Claus!
She's such a good girl. What kind of dad would I be if I stayed up late after hearing that?
So I need you to bring her to my room before she ends up drifting off to sleep!
I'll be waiting under the covers!


Did you hear, (Captain)?
Ardora wants to hand out presents with me this year!
I get to be Santa, while she'll play the reindeer!
She says everyone else is always working real hard, so she wants to do her part too! Sure moved me to tears!
Problem is she wants to go as a stuffed animal, and I can't help but worry if she can sew on her own...
Any chance you can help her out with the costume, (Captain)?
Yeah? Thanks a ton! With you around, I'm sure everything'll pan out just fine!
Hahaha! Hope you're looking forward to tonight's present from Santa!

Fate Episodes

Child In Tow

The crew meets Agielba, a master agent, and his daughter, Ardora. They accept a request in place of Agielba, who is busy, and end up in an unexpectedly difficult struggle. Luckily Agielba and Ardora show up and bail them out. The two of them are so impressed by the kindness of the crew that they decide to join.

The crew visits a town as still as death.
A townsperson is engaged in a heated discussion with a giant Draph.
Giant Draph: You know I'd love to help you with your little problem...
Giant Draph: But I'm already under contract! What do you expect me to do?
Townsperson: We know we're asking for a lot, but there's nobody else strong enough to defeat a monster like that!
Giant Draph: That's too bad. I already have a contract with a rich fellow from Auguste.
Giant Draph: So I don't have time to be wasting here!
Giant Draph: Besides, do you even have enough money to hire me?
Townsperson: I... Well...
Vyrn: What's happening? They arguing or something?
Katalina: It would appear so. Such a loud pair...
Vyrn: Hey! Whatcha guys fighting for?
Lyria: Fighting is bad!
Katalina: Lyria! Where are you going? We should stay out of their business!
Katalina: What luck... We've only just arrived and already trouble has found us. We should follow them, (Captain)!
A powerful monster has appeared in this once-flourishing and vibrant town.
The townsperson reveals to the crew that he and the other townsfolk now live life in fear.
Lyria: That's terrible... What if someone gets hurt?
Katalina: Hmm... It seems as though they weren't quarreling after all, but this sounds like a real problem.
Townsperson: Yeah... We have to take care of that monster somehow, before this all gets out of hand!
Townsperson: I'm begging you, Agielba! Fate brought you to this island, so please help us!
Agielba: How many times do I have to tell you? I can't keep the client I already have waiting.
Agielba: But if you absolutely insist, you're going to have to pay me for my trouble. I might be able to pull some strings if I get paid.
Townsperson: B-but...
Katalina: That must be Agielba, the Great Blade of Daybreak. Looks like the rumors about the man are true.
Lyria: Do you know him, Katalina?
Katalina: This is the first time I've come across him. He's a master agent, who's made quite a name for himself.
Draph Girl: Papi! Da ship's hea! Wetts go!
Agielba: So it is! I'll be right there, my little Ardora!
Katalina: Surprising... In spite of all the dangerous jobs he must do, he has a child by his side.
Ardora: Stare...
Katalina: Ha-ha! What a cutie! How old are you?
Ardora: Um... Wan, twos... fowa yeas od!
Katalina: "Fowa yeas od"? Aww! What's your name?
Ardora: Ardora! I'm hepping Papi 'cawz he's so bezi.
Agielba: That's right. Sadly, someone else is going to have to take care of the monster hunting.
Vyrn: Hey! How can you be so cold when you're so sweet with your daughter? You're seriously going to refuse when they're this desperate?
Vyrn: Then I guess we'll have to take out that monster ourselves! Right, (Captain)?
Lyria: Exactly! They're in trouble! We can't just ignore that!
Agielba: What! No one even asked for your help! Are you out of your minds?
Townsperson: You know, I'm glad to hear you want to help, but I'm not sure this is the sort of monster you can handle...
  1. I want to save the people of this town!
  2. Someone has to do it.

Choose: I want to save the people of this town!
Choose: Someone has to do it.
Katalina: That's right. If Agielba won't do it, we have no choice.
Vyrn: Monster hunting? (Captain) knows how to handle a sword! Just leave it to us! Let's go, (Captain)!
In high spirits, the crew head out in search of the monster.
But the monster turns out to be more powerful than expected, and they end up in a difficult struggle.
Vyrn: This one's way stronger than I thought! Maybe we should regroup and try again...
Ardora: Hey! I foun' dwem! Oba hea, Papi! Oba hea!
Agielba: Don't run in caves, my girl! You might get hurt...
Monster: Grrr!
Vyrn: Uh-oh! The monster is going after that little girl!
Agielba: Haaaa!
Agielba: And that's one monster down. Like I'd ever let a beast like that touch my precious Ardora!
Katalina: What! We struggled so much with that monster, but you dropped it with just one blow!
Agielba: Ha-ha! Against me, I'm surprised that wimp even lasted that long!
Ardora: Papi neba loesses!
Agielba: Still, what a pain you guys are. What would you have done if I hadn't come?
Vyrn: Um... We usually do a bit better than that. Right, (Captain)?
Agielba: Something must be wrong with all of you. I mean, getting into trouble like this without so much as a contract? What if something happens?
Agielba: Aren't you guys part of a crew? How would your friends feel if something happened to you? Think about them!
Ardora: Yeah! Tink!
Vyrn: I think I get it! The reason you're so worried about contract fees is your daughter, right?
Vyrn: You just want to make sure your daughter is taken care of if something happens to you. It's almost enough to make a grown dragon cry!
Agielba: What are you talking about? I'm more worried about the content of my contracts than the fees.
Agielba: What matters is how highly regarded I am! That's what matters to any first-class agent!
Ardora: Yeah! Papi's firs' cass!
Agielba: Ha-ha! Yep. As long as I'm on the mission, you can bet nothing will go wrong.
Vyrn: You know what? I take back what I said earlier...
Agielba: Still, I'm surprised that you guys managed to chase the monster this far. You're stronger than you look!
Vyrn: Yeah, but it was pretty dangerous for us to come rushing into this without being prepared.
Vyrn: Good thing you showed up when you did!
Lyria: And Ardora looked for us too. Thanks, both of you!
Ardora: Heh heh... It waz nuhchin!
Katalina: But don't you have an important contract, Agielba? If so, you'd better hurry back...
Agielba: Right... That doesn't concern you, so don't worry about it.
Ardora: Conchact beach, waight, Papi?
Agielba: Ugh...
Katalina: What? A "conchact bweach"? Do you mean a "breach of contract"?
Vyrn: You sure you're okay with that? I thought you were a stickler for contracts!
Agielba: Can't do much about it now.
Agielba: I couldn't just abandon you guys in front of my daughter!
Lyria: Ha-ha. Your dad's a great guy, Ardora.
Ardora: He chur iz!
Agielba: Anyway... Are you guys always like this? I'm not sure whether you're softies or just plain ol' clueless.
  1. I hear that a lot.
  2. Softy? Stop it. You're embarrassing me.

Choose: Softy? Stop it. You're embarrassing me.
Agielba: That's not a good thing, you know? I wasn't giving you a compliment...
Choose: I hear that a lot.
Agielba: Still, it seems like you're letting a good thing go to waste. I mean, you're obviously skilled, so you could be famous with the right approach.
Katalina: You've got it all wrong. The task of helping others is its own reward.
Vyrn: That's right! And how can you enjoy sailing the skies if you're bound by pesky contracts?
Agielba: A crew, huh? Maybe that wouldn't be so bad. I've already reached my peak in the agent profession after all.
Agielba: I've got a great idea, Captain! How about I sign up with your crew?
Vyrn: Awesome! We'd welcome someone as strong as you anytime! Right, (Captain)?
Agielba: I'll make this crew famous throughout the skies! Sounds good, right?
  1. That's not really our goal...
  2. Sure does! I want to be the best!

Choose: That's not really our goal...
Agielba: Never mind the details!

Choose: Sure does! I want to be the best!
Agielba: That's my captain! Just leave it to big bad me!
Continue 1
Ardora: Weave it to Papi!
Agielba: Okay! Then it's decided! And the first order of business is to earn the money to pay my breach-of-contract fine!
Ardora: Ebibody hewp wit conchact bweach! Come wit me!
Vyrn: Hey! Who said we'd help with that! (Captain) makes the decisions around here!
With the two additional members on board, (Captain) and company set sail.
But it will be a while yet before they're famous throughout the skies.

Ardora's Quest

Ardora has been saving up the allowance she earns for doing chores on the airship to buy Agielba a birthday present. As Agielba secretly watches her, he hears that pirates have boarded the ship and rushes out to defeat them.

Ardora: Skwabby skwabby, squeaky kween! Kween da ship!
Lyria: Wow! What a good girl you are, Ardora! Helping out around the ship, huh?

Agielba: Aw... Did you hear that, (Captain)? Makes me want to cry...
Gran is the Main Character

Agielba: That's my little Ardora! What a good girl she is! You think so too, right, (Captain)?
  1. She's going to grow up to be awesome!
  2. Can I adopt her?

Choose: She's going to grow up to be awesome!
Agielba: Huh? Well, duh... Of course that's the case.

Choose: Can I adopt her?
Agielba: No way! I won't give little Ardora to anyone! Not even you, (Captain)!
Djeeta is the Main Character

Agielba: That's my little Ardora! What a good girl she is! You think so too, right, (Captain)?
  1. I want to give her a hug!
  2. She must really care about you!

Choose: I want to give her a hug!
Agielba: I bet you do! You should tell her what a good girl she is too!

Choose: She must really care about you!
Agielba: You've got that right, (Captain)! You should tell her what a good girl she is too!
Continue 1
Agielba: Wait... What was that? I hear some commotion from the stern of the ship.
Katalina: (Captain)! Agielba! There you are!
Katalina: Pirates are boarding the ship! Come quick!
Agielba: No way! I can't have pirates making a mess while Ardora is cleaning!
Agielba: I'll beat 'em to a pulp! Move it, (Captain)!

Ardora's Quest: Scene 2

Ardora continues doing chores without even noticing the commotion on the airship. Agielba smiles as he secretly watches her, but he finds out that there are still pirates on the ship and rushes out to battle once again.

While Agielba and the others knock the pirates around, Ardora peacefully continues doing chores on the deck.
Ardora: Wook, Wywia! Da ship is squeaky kwean!
Lyria: Wow! Good work, Ardora! I'm impressed!
Vyrn: Hey! Doesn't the allowance you got earlier give you enough to buy your dad's present?

Agielba: Did you hear that, (Captain)? She might be some sort of genius!
Agielba: Hey! Are you even listening, (Captain)?
Katalina: Agielba... I've been looking all over for you, and you're here loafing about?
Agielba: Oh, sorry! I was worried about little Ardora. Just thought I'd check in...
Katalina: That explains it... In any case, the rest of the crew is out, and we need all the help we can get right now.
Katalina: There are still pirates on the ship! If you're worried about little Ardora, we need to get them out of here!
Agielba: All right, leave it to me! They'll be gone in no time!

Ardora's Quest: Scene 3

Ardora goes to town to buy a present for Agielba. Agielba secretly follows and supports his daughter from the shadows, ready to stop anyone who stands in her way.

With the pirates defeated, Agielba starts watching his beloved daughter again.
Ardora: I'm gonna go buy Papi's puwsent now!
Ardora: Um... Vwarn, Wywia, can you come witt me?
Lyria: Of course! Let's go, Ardora!

Agielba: I can't believe she's already grown up enough to go shopping...
Agielba: Ardora... I'm just so proud of her!
Agielba: Listen here, (Captain)! You better not let your guard down until she finishes shopping!
Agielba: We're gonna take out anyone who stands in her path!

Ardora's Quest: Scene 4

Ardora makes it to the store, but the gift she's looking for is sold out. She begins to cry upon learning this, but the crew cheers her up by suggesting that she make a voucher for a shoulder massage. Her homemade gift deepens her bond with her father.

With Agielba's help from behind the scenes, Ardora avoids danger multiple times and reaches the store.
Ardora: Huh? Whea is it? Oba hea?
Ardora: Not hea edaa...

Ardora: Whimper...
Vyrn: Hey, don't cry! It's too bad it was sold out, but cheer up...
