Background

Albert is the captain of the Knights of Levin, an order of warriors who harness the power of Levin's storms to defend their kingdom. Because of his incomparable skill with the sword, he was given the Skyblade, one of Levin's national treasures. He is an intensely strong warrior, but he lacks social awareness and can be surprisingly devious at times—the skintight, revealing female Levin Knight uniforms were his design, to the ire of his subordinates Mona and Mena.

Many years earlier, Albert was a close friend of a man named Yurius, another Levin noble and fellow knight. He was, in fact, the illegitimate son of the king; however, his scholarly pursuits lost him favor with the king, who preferred Albert's heroics. In fact, the king held Yurius in great contempt and found Yurius' attempts to advance Levin society to be far beneath Albert's achievements on the battlefield. To spite Yurius, the king rewarded Albert with the Skyblade when Yurius requested it and and another of Levin's national treasures, the Astral Void Lacrima, for his research... And then renamed the Knights of Levin to the Sky Knights, after Albert.

Albert attempted to mediate when things turned for the worse, but his loyalty to the throne compelled him to agree with the king. Although he tried checking in on Yurius to ensure things were alright, Yurius hid his bitterness away, so Albert never realized how his friend felt until it was too late. One day, sensing that something was amiss after Yurius went to visit the king, Albert barged into the throne room. There, he found a distorted Yurius carrying the Astral Void Lacrima, with the king accusing him of planning his murder and ordering Albert to execute him. To add to the confusion, two different versions of Yurius started speaking to him: one told him to destroy the Lacrima because the Primal Beast's power within it was amplifying his negative emotions, while the other told him that destroying the Lacrima would unleash its full power.

In the chaos and confusion, Albert chose to destroy the Lacrima—but tragically, he chose incorrectly. As the second Yurius warned him, the Primal Beast's power swelled. With this new surge of power, Yurius murdered the king as the Celestial Eye appeared over Levin and unleashed a powerful bolt of lightning and sent Saint Lethan Castle into ruins. With that, Yurius disappeared while the threat of the Celestial Eye loomed over Levin. With his king dead, his best friend now a murderer on the loose, and his kingdom in ruins, Albert took to the skies in search of Yurius while his adjutants, the Levin Sisters, kept watch over the kingdom and the Celestial Eye.

Happy Birthday Cutscenes
# Link Text
1

Happy birthday.
I'm thrilled to celebrate this auspicious day with you.

2

Happy birthday, (Captain).
Wow, another year has gone by. It's strange to think that you were once so young.
Perhaps it's because you've done an excellent job leading this crew.
Your journey to meet your father on Estalucia isn't over yet.
I don't know if I can stay with you until the very end of that.
But I'm your friend. You can always turn to me if you need help. Never forget that.

3

Happy birthday, (Captain).
It isn't much, but I wanted you to have this gift in remembrance of this momentous occasion.
It's odd. We each have our own goals on the journeys we've set out upon.
But I feel as if no matter where you end up going, I'll be there with you too until the very end.
Yeah, I know. There is an end to the journey. Or that is to say the journey must come to an end.
But for now, can we simply enjoy your birthday together?
Thank you.

4

(Captain), happy birthday.
We were all preparing for today's party.
Just picturing how much fun you'd have put a grin on our faces. We had a blast putting this all together.
Everyone places their trust in you, (Captain). I see that clearly now.
Though I wouldn't be surprised if the resulting sense of responsibility can be a bit much sometimes.
Your position as captain comes with its own share of worries... I know that all too well.
No need to keep it all in though... Any time you need someone to talk to, I'm here for you.
That goes both ways?
Heh, glad to hear it.
You can bet I'll be relying on you too, (Captain).
You watch my back, and I'll watch yours.

5

Happy birthday, (Captain).
I can feel your presence as captain growing stronger each year.
No matter what hardships may stand in your way, surely you'll overcome them all with ease.
But with that diligence of yours, I worry that you may burn yourself out before long.
You know, (Captain)... You need to take a break from time to time.
For both yourself and everyone in the crew.
What do you say we go enjoy ourselves in Levin's famous Thunderswift Hot Tub?
It's your birthday, after all. A perfect opportunity to indulge yourself in some electric shocks!

Happy New Year Cutscenes
# Link Text
1

Are you having a nice New Year's, (Captain)?
It'll surely be electrifying.

2

Happy New Year, (Captain). I hope I can rely on you this year as I did last year.
Oof, my knees... Ah, the view from here is amazing...
Hm? Something on your mind?
What? No, I didn't say anything about my knees. You need to get your ears checked, (Captain).
Geez... We just started the new year. Can you give me a break with that old man stuff? I'm hurt...

3

Hello, (Captain). I'm gazing at the setting sun.
The first sunrise of the year is a thing to behold, but the same could be said of the first sunset, correct?
What's wrong, (Captain)? Come closer.
Come join me in watching as the sky turns a deep, dark blue.

4

Ah, (Captain)... Happy New Year...
No, nothing major happened. It's just that for my first dream of the year...
Everyone was calling me Old Man Sparky...
From the kids in town to Mina, Mona, Mena, Vyrn, and you...
I know the new year's only just started, but I'm not that old yet, am I?
Huh, you'll let me cry on your shoulder? Er, thanks, but no thanks. You're too kind, (Captain)...

5

(Captain)! Happy New Year! I'm eager to see what this one brings.
You think I seem more excited than usual?
Well, I was thinking the new year would be a good opportunity to start putting more energy into the things I say and do.
Oof, better sit down before my knees give out.
What! What do you mean I've only got the energy levels of an old man!
Come on... I'm sure even your knees get tired sometimes!
And here I was hoping the start of this year would be a good time to watch what I say and stop these old man jokes...
Hey, don't you think you're laughing just a little too much?

Valentine's Day Cutscenes

1

Happy Valentine's Day.
Are these chocolates for me? Hehe, you've just made my day. Thank you.

2

Now what have we here?
Heh. Chocolates from (Captain)...
I'm so happy I could cry. All jokes aside, these are great. Thank you.

3

Huff... Huff... What the! Oh, it's just you, (Captain). Don't surprise me like that.
If you must know, all the women in town have been chasing after me. Something about wanting to give me valentines.
I love getting a heartfelt gift... but not when I'm getting swarmed by fangirls. I had to get out of there before it was too late.
Hmm... What's that you're holding behind your back, (Captain)?
It's meaningless to lie to me. You of all people should be well aware of that.
Now show it to me.
This box is for me? Ah, now I get it. Forgive me for my suspicions.
You don't want to burden me with even more chocolates? What are you saying? It's no trouble at all! These are great.
Heh. Any gift from you is special. Thank you, (Captain).

4

A package for me, (Captain)?
Handmade chocolate... Thanks. You just made my day.
Wait, you've got bags under your eyes... Don't tell me you stayed up all night to make these...
Hoo boy, I must have really hit the jackpot for you to go this far for me.
I'll savor every piece—promise. And thanks again.
You must be exhausted. Why don't you get some rest?
And don't worry about running the crew for now.
I can help out with that until you recover.

5

(Captain), what are you in such a rush for? The morning's still young...
Huh? This box is for me?
That's right. Today's Valentine's Day, isn't it?
Thank you. I'm overjoyed to receive chocolates from you this year as well.
But why were you in such a rush?
You wanted to be the first person to give me chocolates today?
Hehe, I'm satisfied with having your chocolates at all, no matter the order I received them in.
That's not to say I'm not moved by the sentiment.

White Day Cutscenes
# Link Text
1

What's so surprising about this? Did you forget it was White Day?
Haha... This is in return for last time. I hope it makes you happy.

2

Will you accept this from me, (Captain)?
It's my way of thanking you for Valentine's Day.
It's not easy to come up with the perfect gift, you know.
But when I see your smiling face in my head, it fills me with a sense of peace.
Thanks. Hm, that was a weird thing to say, wasn't it?

3

I'd like to give you a present in return for last month, (Captain).
I thought of your smiling face the entire time I was picking it out at the store.
But being in this position again is still a little nerve-racking.
Haha... Acting so happy while opening it in front of me. Are you for real?
I guess I was worried for nothing. My heart can rest easy now.
You have my utmost thanks, (Captain). I hope I can continue to count on you.

4

(Captain), here's a thank-you for last month. Specially made for you.
Heh... It was fun keeping you in my thoughts while baking these sweets.
I hope they suit your tastes...
And... I also have a letter.
At first I wrote down my thoughts on the taste of those Valentine's chocolates you gave me, but...
Before I knew it, I was jotting down every little thing I'm grateful to you for.
If you don't mind... I'd like you to have this too.

5

Um... Is that pile in your arms all White Day gifts?
I suppose there's no need for me to ask. Of course it is.
As for mine, well, I wanted to be the first to give you a gift today, much like you were the first to give me one on Valentine's, but...
I stayed up a bit too late preparing and overslept.
It was important that I showed proper appreciation for everything you've done for me, so I went all out..
Your pile is nearly overflowing, but would you mind if I added just one more gift to the top?

Trick or Treat Cutscenes
# Link Text
1

Trick or treat.
Even when I was with the knights, we all used to get a kick out of dressing up for Halloween.

2

(Captain)! Don't tell me that you of all people were planning to play a trick on me!
Ah, I see. In that case let me give you the candy you wanted.
No, this can't be! The last of my treats were handed out just moments ago!
I have failed you and must accept your tricks as punishment.
Anything you do to me now is fair game, (Captain).

3

Put it there, (Captain). I just want to shake your hand. Come on.
Heh, feel your arm tingling a little? That's payback for what you did to me last year... Oh, please. This was just a silly prank.
What did you just say? I could've sworn I heard "Old Man Sparky" under your breath.
I won't allow anyone to call me that. Not even you, (Captain)!
Hey! You think you can run from me? They don't call me Thunderswift Lord for nothing!

4

(Captain), I was thinking of an appropriate costume for Halloween.
I don't mean to boast, but the Levin Sisters really love the uniform I designed for them.
Which is why I'm confident about this design too. Here, take a look at the sample.
Well, what do you think? I went with a jack-o-lantern motif while trying to make it appropriately creepy.
The holes in the costume make it look cold?
They're to help with ventilation and mobility.
To allow one to trick others with the swiftness of lightning.
You don't get it?
How about you try the sample costume on and get a feel for it? I think you'll see its merits right away.
Okay, (Captain), keep your arms stretched out!

5

Trick-or-treat, huh?
Here I am asking you to choose between the two, but you've already made up your mind, haven't you, (Captain)?
You're planning to play a trick on me even if I hand over my treats.
Heh... Why are you acting so surprised?
Don't worry, I'm not using the power of the Skyblade. I can tell from just your expression.
Now, give me your best shot! Whatever tricks you've got for me, I'll knock them all down!

Happy Holidays Cutscenes

Tonight's a special night, isn't it? Who will you celebrate it with?
If it's not too much to ask, do you mind if I join you?

2

Holiday party tonight? Well, guess I should lend a hand. Do you want me to carry this?
I know that feeling of putting yourself on the line for your friends. Danger is an occupational hazard for us skyfarers.
But in the face of those dangers, we can still laugh, even if for the briefest of moments. I wonder if we have you to thank for that, (Captain).
I'm a little jealous of your capabilities and compassion, you know...
Heh. No, I'm just mumbling to myself. Come on, let's get excited for tonight.

3

It's a blessing to be able to celebrate this holiday night without incident.
Heh. But something's missing.
Take a good look at the tree, (Captain).
Haah!
What do you think of the lights? We all did our best to hide this from you.
My electricity provides power and changes their colors.
It turned out pretty well considering how anyone could decorate the tree any way they wanted.
The holiday's just getting started. Let's enjoy ourselves at the banquet.

4

Brr... It's chilly outside. Are you okay with the cold, (Captain)?
Though I sure wasn't expecting to have to go shopping for ingredients during the middle of a party...
But maybe I should just be glad for the chance to tour the town with you.
The people walking these streets, our fellow crew members back at the party, and you...
Everyone's so jolly. What a wonderful night it makes for.
We'll be back to our usual busy routine tomorrow, so we should make the most of days off like this.
All right, let's pick up some fruit and cake along with the ingredients we were asked to bring back!

5

I see this year's holy night is as festive as ever.
Between the holiday trees and light displays, it's no surprise that everyone's so excited.
Huh? (Captain), your face looks a bit flushed. Come here a second.
Hm. This feels like a fever and the beginnings of a cold.
We better take care of you. How about warming your body in a nice spring?
What do you say, (Captain)? Feel like a trip to Levin?
I guarantee a soak in our famous hot springs will cure your cold instantly!

Roiling Thunderswift Lord

Albert and Mina are visiting Auguste to learn how the Kingdom of Levin can boost its tourism. After Albert tweaks his overwrought itinerary according to the crew's critiques, he invites them to test out the new and improved plan with him and Mina.



The sun shines brightly on another beautiful summer day. Albert soaks in the rays as he gazes at the sea. Its waters are so clear one can see straight to the bottom.
Albert: Aaah...
Albert: Who knew watching the tide could do wonders for stress relief?
Mina: You're so right.
Albert: It's no surprise this sea ranks number one among Auguste's tourist spots.
Some girls enter the water and start splashing each other with delight. Their shrieks of laughter reach the ears of Albert and Mina on the beach.
Albert: Look at them, Mina. They're having the time of their lives.
Mina: Yes.
Mina: I wish people who visit Levin could have just as much fun.
Albert: Yeah...
Albert: Auguste holds a wealth of information on tourism. I hope we pick up a few pointers during our time here.
Albert and Mina aren't visiting Auguste simply to relax and get a tan.
The Kingdom of Levin is still rebuilding, attempting to entice travelers with local offerings of grape liqueur and hot springs.
However, results have been mixed at best, and the tourism office is scrambling to find ways to bring in more visitors.
One idea put forth is to learn from the success of others, and there's no better success story than the resort isles of Auguste.
Albert and Mina plan to share what they learn in Auguste with the folks back in Levin.
Mina: We've pored over all the pamphlets and books written about Auguste before coming here.
Mina: But there are so many points of interest to investigate. How do we even start?
Albert: Have no fear, Mina. I know better than to dive headfirst into Auguste without a plan.
A victorious smile crosses Albert's face as he pulls out a thick stack of papers and hands it to Mina.
Mina: What's this?
Albert: A compilation of the action committee's thoughts and suggestions organized into a single itinerary that's guaranteed to generate a fun vacation.
Albert: I revised it last night.
Mina: It's so easy to follow...
Mina: Every landmark and establishment we should visit is sorted into specific categories like culture and history!
Albert: I wouldn't exactly say we're accustomed to taking vacations.
Albert: But if we stick to this itinerary, we'll become masters of all things Auguste by the time we leave.
Mina: I expected nothing less from our leader.
Albert: Let's not ease up, Mina. When travel time between islands is factored in, this schedule gets tight.
Albert: One could argue our stay in Auguste will be as challenging as a skyfarer's daily training regimen.
Albert: Vacations must be approached with utmost diligence.
Mina: Understood!
Lyria: Hi, Albert! Hi, Mina! Did you two come to enjoy the beach too?
Albert: Well, isn't this a surprise. We didn't know you guys were in town either.
Albert: We're here to enjoy everything Auguste has to offer in order to improve Levin.
Vyrn: Hehe, it's pretty rare to hear Mr. Serious talkin' about havin' fun.
Mina: How rude...
Lyria: What's that big stack of papers for?
Albert: Oh, this? It's a detailed itinerary designed to squeeze out every drop of entertainment in Auguste.
The crew flip through the pages with great interest, but they end up frowning as they read.
  1. This is supposed to be a vacation plan?
  2. It doesn't even have beach volleyball!

Choose: This is supposed to be a vacation plan?
Albert: That's right. It was formed with everyone's input. Pretty good, huh?
Lyria: Um, how should I say this...
Vyrn: Just give it to 'em straight, Lyria. They've got this Auguste vacation thing all wrong!

Choose: It doesn't even have beach volleyball!
Vyrn: Uh, that's not the problem, buddy!
Lyria: Vyrn's right! Poor Kyuta and the other kappa will cry if you don't try their kappa rolls...
Albert: Beach volleyball and kappa rolls? Sounds like I need to rearrange the schedule to slot those two things in.
Vyrn: Wait, wait! That's not the point!
Vyrn: You don't get it! Your novel of a plan defeats the whole purpose of having fun in Auguste!
Continue 1
Mina: What! How dare you talk back to the leader like that!
Albert: Easy now, Mina. We're here to study Auguste after all.
Albert: Vyrn and the others are connoisseurs of Auguste. Why shouldn't we take advantage of their knowledge?
Mina: Yes, but...
Albert fetches a pen from his satchel and turns to (Captain) and company, ready to take notes.
Albert: You're saying the itinerary is flawed. Can you tell me specifically what's wrong with it?
Vyrn: Erm, well...
Vyrn: Just look at how you split up these activities. Culture, history, business...
Vyrn: It sounds more like a study plan to pass a test, not a list of fun things to do.
Albert & Mina: ...!
Vyrn: It's too by the numbers, y'know? When I think about havin' fun, I picture myself cuttin' loose.
Albert: So I should be more flexible.
Lyria: Mm-hm. For example...
Lyria: When Lancelot and the other knights are in Auguste, they go all out playing beach flags.
Vyrn: Somethin' tells me they're not thinking about history or whatever while they're grabbing for flags.
Lyria: As for Kolulu and her group...
Vyrn: They only had one goal: chowin' down on delicious sushi in an eating contest.
Lyria: Let's see, who else... Cailana spends all her time surfing.
Vyrn: And Elmott's mannin' the beach house like he always does.
Lyria: His new hellgrilled searoast is amazing!
Albert: Heh... I see. So that's what having fun in Auguste means to you.
Albert's pen flies across the paper as he listens to the crew's various experiences.
Eventually he stops writing.
Albert: Finished!
Albert: This time I'm sure I've come up with the perfect recipe for getting the most out of Auguste!
Mina: Yes! And once we put your new itinerary in motion, we'll have lots of examples to present to the action committee.
Albert: Say, (Captain). If you guys aren't busy, would you like to test this plan out with us?
  1. Sure!

Choose: Sure!
Albert: You will? Thanks!
Albert: Now that we've got everything settled, let's not waste any time.
Albert: We'll follow this plan accordingly and really cut loose!
Vyrn: Um, how do you cut loose when you're bound to a plan?
Albert: That's... That's a good point! But how am I supposed to be spontaneous?
When Lyria sees Albert furrow his brow and cross his arms, she has to speak up.
Lyria: I don't think you have to worry about it so much.
Lyria: Once you start having fun with everyone, everything will work out just fine!
Albert: I do see the logic in that. In that case I should focus on enjoying myself.
Albert: Vacation days are hard to come by, so the name of the game is to stop overthinking and just have fun!
All Three: Yeah!
Albert looks at the revised itinerary with excitement.
He's confident his time in Auguste will translate to a prosperous future for Levin.

A Night to Remember

Albert takes a break by himself after a long day of fun spent with the crew and overhears a pyrotechnic master and his protege talking about fireworks. When Albert asks if he can join their conversation, the master offers to show him a private fireworks demo.



Albert: Oof, my legs...
Albert has been out all day with (Captain) and company.
Today's selection of nonstop activities has drained his energy. He's come to a beach house to recharge by himself.
Albert: ((Captain) and the others have tons of pep. It's like they were born to party.)
Albert: (Heh, but honestly I can't remember the last time I laughed so much.)
Albert: (I'm glad I asked them to partake in my vacation plans.)
???: How's this, Master? I want to breathe new life into our fireworks displays.
???: Oho, I know something's brewin' when you get that look on your face.
Albert: Hm?
Albert perks up when he accidentally overhears some people mention a fireworks display.
Albert: (Fireworks draw the biggest crowds to an already packed Auguste.)
Albert: Excuse me. I don't mean to be rude, but I couldn't help overhearing your conversation. Are you fireworks experts by any chance?
Pyro Master: Sure, we happen to be. And you are?
Albert: My name is Albert, leader of the Sky Knights of Levin.
Albert: I came to Auguste seeking ideas to help rebuild my homeland.
Albert: I was intrigued by your discussion of a fireworks display.
Albert: If it's not too much to ask, do you mind if I join your conversation?
Pyro Master: It ain't every day we get a leader of some kingdom's sky knights showin' an interest in fireworks. Grab a seat, friend.
Albert: Thank you.
Albert: Basically I'd like to understand the ins and outs of putting on a fireworks show.
Pyro Master: Wahaha! Hardly anyone ever asks the real questions, that's for sure!
Pyro Master: It's technical stuff. Definitely not something you can explain over a drink.
Pyro Master: Come with me to the launch area, and I'll give you a special behind-the-scenes demo.
Albert: Are you sure? I'd be ever grateful.
Pyro Master: All right. I'd better get everything set up then.
Pyro Protege: Hold your fuses, Master! I'm all for showing Mr. Sky Knight here.
Pyro Protege: But we were in the middle of a conversation!
Pyro Master: Ah, sorry, sorry. So... what were you saying again?
Albert: Something about wanting to breathe new life into fireworks?
Pyro Protege: Yeah, yeah! Picture this: we pump the beach full of music, then shoot off fireworks to the beat...
Before Albert even realizes it, he's managed to acquaint himself with a seasoned fireworks expert and his protege.
If he's to learn the workings of fireworks, he'll have to become a student for a day.

A Night to Remember: Scene 2

The fireworks demo leaves Albert speechless, and he envisions putting on a fireworks display in Levin to raise the people's spirits. Although the master initially refuses to take Albert as an apprentice, he changes his mind when he learns that Albert intends to use this knowledge for Levin's reconstruction efforts.



Gentle waves lap against the side of a boat.
Albert looks up at the starry night sky from his spot on the bow, his eyes bright with wonder.
Albert: It's so dark up there, like a beautiful abyss that threatens to suck me in forever. I've never seen anything like it.
Pyro Master: Wahaha! Just wait till we launch these suckers! Then tell me it ain't the most beautiful sky you ever saw!
Pyro Protege: We're ready to go, Master!
Pyro Master: Good. You might wanna scooch away from the launch tubes, Albert.
Pyro Master: A firework's nothing but a bundle o' gunpowder. Don't wanna take any chances now!
Albert heeds the master's warning and moves a safe distance away from the mortars.
Pyro Master: Here we go! Send up the first barrage!
An aerial shell is swallowed by the dark sky, only to reemerge as an exploding ring of light.
Albert: What a sight to behold...
Pyro Master: Kapow! Boom!
The way the master punctuates each percussive blast with a hearty yell, combined with the stunning array of colors, strikes a chord with Albert.
Albert: (This is what I've been looking for! I want the people of Levin to feel the same emotions I'm feeling right now!)
Albert: (What could be more relaxing than watching fireworks go off overhead while soaking in a hot spring?)
Pyro Master: Now it's time for the big mamas!
Pyro Master: Hey, when you get back, I need you to adjust the copper salt mixture so that the breaks go off more smoothly.
Pyro Protege: Will do.
After the demo concludes and the three arrive back on shore, Albert, who can't contain his excitement, bows to the master.
Albert: I know this is a lot to ask, but would you consider taking me in as an apprentice?
Pyro Master: Huh, wonder if I got wax in my ears. Coulda swore you asked to become my apprentice.
Albert: Indeed I did. I want to learn from you and show the people of my kingdom the wonders of a fireworks display.
Pyro Master: Ah...
The master rubs his head, looking troubled.
Pyro Master: Tell you what, Albert. As a man who's given his life to fireworks, I'm happy to know how much of an impact they've made on you.
Pyro Master: But in this line of work, you can get seriously injured if you ain't got the talent.
Pyro Master: Your health means everything when it comes to protecting your kingdom, am I right?
Pyro Master: Besides, no one can master the ins and outs in just a few days. Sorry, kid, but I gotta say no.
Albert: Please wait!
The master turns around and only manages to take a few steps before Albert quickly jumps in front of him.
Albert: I am fully aware of the risks associated with this job. I assure you I'm not taking this lightly.
Albert: I have to be the one to learn the trade if Levin is ever going to see a fireworks display.
Albert: It's the key to my kingdom's revitalization. I'm certain of it. I don't care how long it takes.
Pyro Master: Hm...
Albert: So please. Will you let me be your apprentice?
The master pyrotechnician can only do one thing in the face of Albert's intensity.
Pyro Master: Wahaha! Never woulda dreamed the leader of sky knights'd be putting his faith in me.
Pyro Master: And what kinda pyro would I be to turn away such a passionate student?
Albert: You mean...
Pyro Master: Heh. I'm a real hard-ass. I'd better not hear any whining later.
Albert: Thank you, sir. I swear on my honor I will give this my all.
Pyro Protege: Welcome to the apprentice brotherhood, Albert. And since I got seniority, you gotta call me Big Bro!
Pyro Master: Pains me to see someone o' your stature get a demotion.
Pyro Master: But there's a pecking order in the pyrotechnic biz.
Pyro Master: Sorry, that's how it is. Can you handle calling me Master and this guy Big Bro?
Albert: Understood. I look forward to learning from the both of you, Master and Big Bro.
Pyro Protege: Aw yeah, Big Bro status! Feels awesome to be at the top for once!
Pyro Master: Little Bro's gonna take your spot if you slack off, you chowderhead! Concentrate!
Pyro Protege: Yes, sir!
Albert: Heh...
And so Albert has taken the first step toward his dream of putting on a fireworks display in Levin.

A Night to Remember: Scene 3

Albert practices making fireworks over several days, and when he finally creates a shell worth showing to the master, the master is so impressed that he plans to use it in a fireworks show scheduled for the next day. However, all the fireworks for the show mysteriously go missing. Albert and the protege frantically search for them; Albert senses something odd in the protege's behavior and threatens him with the Skyblade to tell the truth.



Albert's journey to becoming a pyrotechnician begins with a lesson in fireworks history.
Pyro Master: Fireworks started off as bombs a long time ago. Seems obvious, right?
Pyro Master: Imagine the explosions going off and fires being started in enemy camps. Pretty barbaric if you think about it.
Pyro Master: Well, the years went on.
Pyro Master: People started shooting off fireworks in memory of famine and plague victims. The idea was to lay good souls to rest while warding off evil spirits.
Albert: Interesting...
Pyro Master: Times change; cultures change. Fireworks are now a form of entertainment.
Pyro Master: And that's the evolution of these spectacular light shows.
Albert: Hm...
The master laughs sympathetically at the sight of Albert jotting down notes like a mad man.
Pyro Master: You don't hafta remember all this, unless you think people're gonna ask for some reason.
Albert: It's fine. I hardly think a fireworks expert can be called an expert without knowing the history of their craft.
Albert: Besides, I find it very interesting. Thanks for the lesson.
Pyro Master: Wahaha! You'll make a fine pyro with that kinda commitment to details.
Pyro Master: But here's the thing, kid. It ain't as simple as listening to a lecture. You gotta roll up your sleeves and get hands-on experience!
Albert: Absolutely. I'm ready whenever you are.
Albert's practical training begins. He shadows the master, observing the expert at work and asking many questions before trying it for himself.
Albert: (Each shell contains a mixture of various types of gunpowder.)
Albert: (There's gunpowder that launches the shell, gunpowder that ignites the firework, and gunpowder pellets that produce the colors we see, also known as stars.)
Pyro Master: The brightness, colors, and shapes you wanna make depend on the distribution of the gunpowder mixtures.
Pyro Master: Getting the perfect color can take multiple components, as much as over a dozen.
Albert: I had no idea the process was so involved. I guess you could make an unlimited combination of colors.
Pyro Protege: We're just scratching the surface. Fireworks take a variety of shapes, like chrysanthemum, peony, and nishiki kamuro. In other words—
Albert: Stars and breaks have to be packed in a specific manner depending on the effect desired.
Pyro Protege: Surprised? Bet you took one look at the master before and thought, "Gee, there's nothing sophisticated about fireworks at all!"
Pyro Master: Wahaha! Never judge a book by its cover. An artisan has feelings too, y'know!
Albert: That's true, otherwise one can't achieve such stunning displays of beauty.
Pyro Master: Bingo!
Pyro Protege: Hehe. Hey, Albert.
Pyro Protege: Let's make the awesomest fireworks the people are dying to see.
Albert: Yeah, that's the plan.
That night, Albert hones his craft while consulting the notes he took earlier.
It's no easy task balancing the combination of quantity and composition, but he seems to enjoy the challenge.
Albert: (I can tell how much Master and Big Bro love their job from the way they taught me.)
Albert: (It's incredible how two individuals can bring so much joy to many others.)
Albert: Haha. This truly is a remarkable profession.
Albert himself has fallen under the spell of making fireworks, and he spends his days assembling shells.
After a few more days of practicing on his own, he finally creates a firework worthy of critique.
Pyro Master: Oho...
Albert: What do you think?
Pyro Master: This ain't the work of an amateur! Excellent stuff, Albert!
Albert: Phew... I couldn't have done it without you and Big Bro.
Pyro Master: In fact, I think I'm gonna use it in tomorrow's display.
Albert: So soon? I'm not sure that's a good idea...
Pyro Master: What're you mumbling about? Why else did you work day and night on this?
Pyro Protege: Uh, aren't you going a little too easy on him, Master?
Pyro Master: Says who? Albert poured his heart into this creation. You could learn a thing or two from it.
The master places Albert's handiwork in the palm of his protege's hand and unceremoniously walks off.
Pyro Protege: ...
Albert: Big Bro...
Pyro Protege: Hm? Oh...
Pyro Protege: You oughta go after the master. He's got a meeting with the show organizers. Could be a good learning opportunity.
Albert: Okay. I'll do that.
Albert hurries after the master, still concerned by the vacant look on the protege's face.
After the meeting with the organizers is over, the master and Albert check on the shells for tomorrow's event.
They're shocked by what they see—or rather, don't see.
Pyro Master: What in tarnation! All of the shells are gone!
Albert: But we moved everything to this storage shed after drying them in the sun...
Pyro Protege: I'm sorry! I looked all around but couldn't find a single one!
Pyro Protege: Argh! Could they have been nicked? Who'd do such a thing!
Albert: Hm...
Pyro Master: We've got too many expectations riding on us. I can't cancel on tomorrow's audience.
Pyro Master: Search everywhere you can think of! I'm gonna go fetch some more eyeballs!
Albert: Understood!
Albert and the protege rush out of the storage shed as ordered and search high and low.
Try as they might, they find no trace of the missing fireworks. The two feel as if their options are running out as they walk along the beach under the moon.
Albert: Hmph...
Pyro Protege: It sucks, but I guess the display'll have to be canceled after all.
Albert: I can't bear to hear it. Haven't you and the master been prepping for this event for a year now?
Albert: I won't let your efforts go to waste. I'll definitely catch the culprit.
Pyro Protege: Oh... I hope you do.
Albert: Hm...
Albert notices how the protege is looking at the ground with a hangdog expression. He lets out a small sigh.
Albert: Why, Big Bro?
Pyro Protege: Wh-why what?
Albert: Weren't you the one who wanted to make the ultimate fireworks for all those who have been waiting in anticipation?
Pyro Protege: Ah, yeah. I did say something like that. But the fireworks are missing, so what's the point?
Albert: ...
Pyro Protege: Wh-what?
Albert draws his Skyblade and points it at the sky. The brilliant moon is quickly blotted out by dark clouds.
Pyro Protege: D-dude... What is this?
Albert: Do you honestly believe it's fine to cancel tomorrow's display?
Pyro Protege: Y-you're saying it like it's my fault.
Albert: Tell me the truth, Big Bro, because if you don't...
Albert: All it takes is one lightning strike to burn you to a crisp.
Pyro Protege: Gulp....
Albert: Answer me!

A Night to Remember: Scene 4

The protege confesses to hiding the fireworks because he was jealous of the adulation Albert has been receiving from the master. Albert helps patch things up between the master and the protege, and the fireworks show goes off without a hitch. He watches the breathtaking display, wishing the people of Levin could be there with him.



Pyro Protege: Waaah!
Albert: Hmph...
Albert sheathes his sword and places a hand on the bawling man's shoulder.
Albert: I won't be the one to pass judgment, but at least tell me why you did it.
Albert: What happened to your pride as a pyrotechnician?
Pyro Protege: Heh, you're looking at a loser.
Pyro Protege: I've spent all my time making fireworks, but the master never uses any of my stuff.
Pyro Protege: Then you come along, and Master is so quick to add your firework to the show, even though you just started. I was jealous, plain and simple.
Pyro Protege: I mean, what makes yours better than mine?
Albert: ...
Pyro Protege: Haha, I couldn't deal with my own suckage. Pretty lame, huh?
Albert regards the crying, remorseful man with sympathy.
Albert: Where did you hide the fireworks?
Pyro Protege: I'll show you...
The two men walk in silence and eventually reach an empty hut not far from the storage shed.
The missing fireworks are lined up neatly, including the one Albert created.
Albert: You kept the one I made?
Pyro Protege: Well, my original plan was to get rid of it, but upon closer inspection, it was pretty good for a first attempt.
Pyro Protege: When I thought about the work you put into it, I just couldn't bring myself to trash it.
Albert: Big Bro...
Pyro Protege: Master's gonna need your help with the show tomorrow, Albert.
Pyro Protege: It won't be easy for one man to pull off on his own.
Albert: What are you going to do now?
Pyro Protege: I can't face him. Sorry, but I gotta skip town.
The man offers a bitter smile and is about to run off into the night.
Albert: So you're just going to give up and run away?
Pyro Protege: Look, I don't got what it takes to be a pyro.
Albert: ...
Albert spots a small firework hidden in the corner on a shelf. He picks it up and shows it to the protege.
Albert: Your craftsmanship is far and away better than mine.
Albert: This shell isn't just a symbol of your passion; it's a testament to the skills you've developed thus far.
Pyro Protege: ...
Albert: Leaving before you even get to see one of your creations going off in the sky is the worst choice a budding pyrotechnician can make.
Albert: You are destined to become a pyro. I say you give the master and fireworks another chance.
Pyro Protege: Albert...
Pyro Protege: After what I've done, do you really think I can make amends?
Albert: We all can learn from our mistakes. That's my firm belief.
Pyro Protege: Thank you... Thank you so much... Sniff...
The protege returns to the master and confesses to the deed, then waits for his punishment.
After listening in silence, the master lets out a deep sigh and suddenly grabs his student by the shoulders.
Pyro Master: Oy!
Pyro Protege: Urk!
Pyro Master: Who taught you that stupid crap?
Pyro Master: Who was it? Was it me? Hell no! I'm warning you right now: if you don't figure out how to make our audiences smile, I'm gonna be really mad!
Pyro Protege: Huh? Does that mean—
Pyro Master: Can the waterworks! Your job is to synchronize the fireworks to the music. How're you gonna hear the beat over all that blubbering?
Pyro Master: That was your idea, remember? Well, we're using it. Me and Albert ain't gonna hold your hand. So grow up and take some responsibility!
Pyro Protege: Yes, Master!
Albert: Heh...
Pyro Master: Get the lead out, boys! Those fireworks ain't gonna check themselves for tomorrow's show!
The Two: Yes, sir!
The hours quickly pass by, and the fireworks display is on schedule.
Albert and the pyros stand on the deck of a boat some distance offshore, anxious to start the display. Spectators crowd the beach, staring at the sky with excitement.
Pyro Master: All right, guess it's showtime. Give the organizers the signal.
Pyro Protege: Check!
The protege holds up a torch and a jaunty tune begins to play on the beach. The crowd murmurs with delight.
Pyro Master: Albert! Queue the first barrage with the music and light 'em up!
Albert: You can count on me!
Albert lights the fuses with all the confidence in the world.
The fireworks fly into the air. Sparks explode from their casings, mingling with the stars.
Albert: Haha!
Pyro Master: We're just gettin' started. Don't forget we got a job to do!
Albert: Yes, sir!
The fruits of their labor flicker out of existence in mere seconds, but the results they produce are well worth the effort.
Each explosion elicits oohs and aahs from the captivated crowd. Their smiles are lit with a rainbow of colors.
Pyro Master: Hey, Albert.
Albert: Yes?
As the fireworks go off overhead, the master speaks to Albert, his voice soft and slightly quivering.
Pyro Master: Thanks for what you did last night.
Albert: It was nothing. Sometimes our emotions get the best of us.
Pyro Master: Spoken like a true leader of a kingdom's knights. I salute you.
Pyro Master: In my head I thought of the kid as my successor...
Pyro Master: Didn't even realize how hard I was being on the lad. Hah, who knew training a disciple would be so tough.
The master scratches his head with a sheepish smile. Albert nods, sympathizing with the pyrotechnician.
Albert: It's the same as training in any discipline. You can't expect results in a matter of days.
Albert: Your concerns aren't unique to just you.
Albert: I've seen many leaders, myself included, grapple with this issue.
Pyro Master: Haha, is that a fact? In any case, I think this old goat mighta softened a bit. Thanks!
Pyro Protege: Yo, chatterboxes! Can I get a little help here? There's more fireworks to let off!
Pyro Master: Wahaha! Now the shoe's on the other foot! Let's not disappoint the lad!
Albert: Right!
A firework bearing the name Auguste Falls lavishes a vivid rain of sparks. From the crowd's perspective, it's like watching a mini meteor shower.
Albert: (Words can't describe this beauty...)
Albert: (I feel selfish for being the only one from Levin to witness this.)
Albert: (I truly wish the people in Levin who are working for the kingdom's sake could see this wonderful spectacle.)
Albert: (Surely there will be an opportunity in the future.)
Albert continues to watch the lights in the sky while thinking about his friends and fellow countrymen back home.
In the waning days of his stay in Auguste, Albert spends every waking moment learning about fireworks to bring back to Levin.
