I hope you'll always think of me like that! I know I'll always think of you that way, (Captain)!

Happy birthday, (Captain)! Hurray!
You're always so great to me, so today I'm going to sing for you as a birthday present!
Great, huh!

Happy birthday, dear (Captain).
Happy birthday to you!

Hmm? What is it? Oh, it is New Year's already?
So what's going on? I'm still so sleepy... I was up late last night.
Well, I guess it's not so bad having this kinda day once a year.
I'm looking forward to this next year with you, Captain. Happy New Year. And good night.

2

Happy New Year, (Captain). Looks like another great year is ahead of us.
Hey... Why are you looking at me like that?
What? You want to make sure I'm gonna do it right this year?
Last year was just a coincidence! A sleep fairy put me to sleep!
Huh? You want to hear more about this sleep fairy? Well, I don't have to explain it to you!
Gulp... Anyway, as you can see, I'm doing just fine. You could even call me a shining example of how to stay awake!
Stop looking at me like that! I'm not even sleepy at all!
If you're so worried about me, you can keep standing there staring! I'm not going to sleep!

Yah!
Take that!
Whoa, too far...

Alternating from left to right... That's no fair. How am I supposed to get there in time?
Fiiine, go ahead and draw on my face already.
Grr... If it's come to this, I'll just use my trusty staff as a paddle.
Take this! Haha, easy! Gotcha! Yah!
All right! I won, I won!
Hahaha! What do you mean, this isn't fair? I just leveled the playing field.
Hee-hee... Now what should I draw on you...

Right! It's New Years!
What's your New Year's resolution? How do you want to spend this year?
How about you tell me all about it? And then whenever you see my face, you'll be reminded of all you want to accomplish.
I'll always be by your side, so don't worry about me leaving!
My New Year's resolution is to always be with you, (Captain)!
Hehe... That'll make it so both of us accomplish our goals! Two birds, one stone!

Okay, now! It's time for a quiz!
Hehehe... The question is, what day is today?

That's right! It's Valentine's Day! The day you give chocolates to your favorite person!
And with that I'll give you your present!
Oh, look! Isn't it adorable?
I was thinking all about you when I made it. I hope you like it!

Oh, right. Today is Valentine's Day.
I bet you get a lot of presents from a lot of different people.
But I didn't get you anything.
(B-dmp, b-dmp... How will (Captain) react to not getting chocolates from me?)
(Gasp... (Captain) is trying to act like it's okay, but I can see the pain...)
(I'm glad (Captain) wanted something from me...)
I'm sorry! I was only kidding!
Here you go... I made this chocolate just for you. There's no way I'd forget about your present, silly.
That's because I love ya!

Today's that special day, isn't it?
Ho hum...
Huh? Oh, it's nothing. I just kind of got my hopes up is all.
Hmm? What is it? That's... for me? Yay! Yay, yay!
Hey, wait! Were you just monkeying around with me at first? I can't believe I fell for that...

2

What! You're going out on a mission the whole day?
Oh, okay... Hmm... But, well... okay. If you've got a job to do, I guess you've just gotta do it.
If I stay in my room all day, I'm just going to fall asleep. So I'll tag along!
(Argh! Don't be stupid! Just be a good girl and wait for (Captain) to come back!)
Huh? But first there's something you wanna give me?
A White Day gift?
Yay! Yay, yay! Hehehe. I love it!
Huh? Wait a second! This is the same thing that happened last year! You tricked me!
But since you gave me something nice, I guess I'll just forget the whole thing!
All right then, let's head out!

3

Is this in return for Valentine's Day? Hehe, thanks!
Hm? I'm the first one you've given a gift to today?
It's not nice to lie, you know!
Didn't you just give something to that pretty lady just now? I happened to see it.
(Geez! You could've just been honest with me. I would've been just fine with being your second!)
What? You were only passing an item to a client just now? R-really?
Yaaay, thanks! All right! I was your first one!
Sorry for doubting you... I'll be sure to savor this!

Today's White Day!
So I'm here to get a present from you before anyone else!
Huh? You forgot? You don't have anything for me?
Sob... You... big meanie... How could you forget about me...
Hm? This is for me?
Yay! Thank you! I love ya, (Captain)!
What! You were copying what I did to you on Valentine's Day?
Ahaha. Sorry. I guess we're even now!

Trick or treat!
All right, time for a trick! Can you guess which one of these is me?
Bzz! The correct answer is neither! Both are fakes!
For answering incorrectly, you now owe me an extra large order of cotton candy! The fluffier, the better!

2

I remember you playing tricks on me all day last year, but this year I'm gonna turn the tables on you!
Huh? It's tough to trick people when you tell them ahead of time?
Hmm... What should I do? Oh, I know!
I'll take a nap, then play a trick on you once I forget I was supposed to do it!
Okay then! Naptime! Have a happy Halloweeeen!

3

Andira: Snore... Trick or treat... Snore...
(Captain) approaches the sleeping Andira and pinches her nose.
Andira: Huh? Can't... breathe...
Haha, too much cotton candy... Even if you push it on my face like that, I just can't eat it... Hahaha...
Huh? Aaah! What are you doing! Pranking someone while they're sleeping is against the rules!
This calls for a counterattack! You're going to feel my fluffy wrath!
Hahaha! Had enough yet?
Hmm... This kind of reminds me of my dream... I want some cotton candy...

Ehehe. My cloud sure is ready for fun today!

2

Tonight is a special night, isn't it? So are you going out tonight?
Hmm? You want to know why I'm asking? I guess it's because I'm not really doing anything right now...
I was wondering if maybe you wanted to spend some time with me tonight.
What? You do?
Yay yay! So is this a date, then? Yay, a date, a date!
A date with (Captain)! Hehehe. I better go pick out something to wear!

Keeper of the West-Southwest[edit]

(Captain) and crew are heading to the west-southwest temple when they come across an unusual young girl floating in the air. Seeing that she is about to crash into the airship, (Captain) jumps into action to save her. Andira is intrigued by (Captain)'s selfless actions. Andira, who has inherited powerful magic abilities and a sacred duty from her ancestor, asks (Captain) to allow her to join them on their journey.



While on their travels, the crew hear of a temple which opens its doors to the public only once every twelve years.
Anila is a crew member

The previous year the crew had visited Anila, the guardian of south-southwest. This year they decide to head west-southwest.
Anila not in crew

Hoping to pray for good health and fortune, the crew make for the temple in the west-southwest.
The crew are making their merry way toward the temple when as if by magic a girl appeared before them.
Vyrn: Huh? Hey, (Captain). Are you seeing what I'm seeing?
(Captain) could see it too. A girl, lying atop a cloud. The crew are astonished to see that she is in fact sleeping.
Lyria: Ah! What a precarious place to be sleeping!
Vyrn: I wonder what she's doing sleeping on a cloud like that?
Roused by the crew's inquisitive voices, the girl reluctantly awakens.
???: …Yaaawn… Aaah… Go on… Just do it…
Vyrn: Oh I'm sorry, did we wake you?Hey! What are you doing here anyway?
???: Hmm… I'm so sleepy… Don't worry, I can take it…
The girl lies back down, obviously eager to get back to sleep.
However (Captain)decides to jump up onto her cloud.
(Captain) and the girl manage to just avoid getting hit by the airship, but instead fall off the cloud.
???: Eek!
(Captain) holds on tightly to the frightened girl as they plummet to the depths beneath the skies.
???: Uh… Huh? Why did you jump on me like that?
  1. I couldn't let you fall alone.
  2. I don't know, it just happened.

Choose: I couldn't let you fall alone.
???: R-really? Incredible! Weren't you scared?

Choose: I don't know, it just happened.
???: Bwahaha! Really? That's funny! But, aren't you scared?
Continue 1
The girl asks this to (Captain) with a glint in her eye.
  1. I'm terrified.
  2. I'm not… s-scared…

Choose: I'm terrified.
???: Understandable, after all we're pretty much done for. Such a shame, you seem like a nice person.
(Captain) apologizes to the girl, who seems surprisingly nonchalant considering their situation.

Choose: I'm not… s-scared…
???: You must be really strong. Thank you for helping me.
The girl grabs a hold of (Captain)'s shaking arms.
(Captain) apologizes to the girl, trying to not sound scared.
Continue 2
???: Hee hee. Why are you apologizing to me?
The girl's expression quickly shifts. (Captain) is still visibly shaken by their less than ideal circumstances.
???: Hahaha. I like you. What's your name?
(Captain) answers.
???: (Captain), huh? As I thought, and interesting name for an interesting person.
(Captain) asks for her name.
Andira: Andira. My name's Andira.
Andira: All right, I think it's about time I saved you, (Captain).
Andira: Hold on tight!
Andira wraps her tail around (Captain).
Andira: Light as a feather… Kinto-un, appear!
The cloud that Andira had been riding earlier appears before them.
Relieved that they are safe, (Captain) tries to get on the cloud… And falls straight through it.
Andira: Heheheh… Sorry! But this cloud is just for me.
Andira settles herself back atop her magic cloud, then readies her staff.
Andira: Absolute freedom in endless skies! Go, Nyoi Bo!
As Andira chanted her incantation she points her staff upward, and it starts to extend.
The staff breaks through the bottom of the Grandcypher and lodges itself in firmly, putting a stop to their fall.
Andira: Don't worry, I'll pay for that!
(Captain) can't help but laugh along with Andira.
Andira: All right, let's get back to the ship.
When Andira and (Captain) get back on board they are greeted by Vyrn and Lyria.
(Captain) tells them what happened.
Lyria: Oh I'm so glad you're both OK.
Vyrn: What the hell do you think you were doing!
Vyrn: And Andira, what were you doing sleeping on a cloud way out here?
Andira: I… Well… Um… Anyway, thank you for your help.
Vyrn: You're welcome, though I don't know how much help we were.
Andira: Oh, and I want to pay you back for the hole I made in your ship. If you come with me I can get you the money.
Lyria: Don't worry about that, it's not that big anyway!
Lyria: Besides, you saved (Captain)'s life, so if anything we owe you!
Andira: No, no, no. I've been a great nuisance to you all.
Vyrn: Don't worry about it! Anyway, we should really get going, we need to get to the west-southwest temple.
Andira: You do? Well then, as thanks for saving me I shall be your guide and show you the way.
On the way to the temple (Captain) tells Andira of their quest to find Estalucia.
Under Andira's guidance the crew find their way to the west-southwest temple.
Andira: This is the monkey temple in the west-southwest.
Lyria: Wow. Thank you so much, Andira!
Andira: Please, it's the least I could have done.
Vyrn: Man, this place is packed.
Vyrn: Huh? What's that?
Vyrn points to where a crowd is gathered. In the center is another Andira.
Lyria: Is that… Andira? But, Andira's right here…
Vyrn: It seems so…
Lyria: Oh, I know! Andira must have an identical twin!
Andira: Nope.
Andira: I'm the real Andira. The one over there is just a fake.
Vyrn: What? What do you mean, "fake"?
Andira: I'll explain everything later. Come back when the crowds have gone.
Andira mutters a word and the Andira surrounded by the crowd suddenly disappears.
Lyria: Wow! She just disappeared into thin air!
Once the crowd dispersed, the crew goes back to Andira.
Anila is a crew member

Andira reveals her identity as the guardian of the west-southwest.
She is in fact the master of the monkey temple.

Anila not in crew

People have come to the monkey temple to pray for health, wealth, and good fortune.
However in truth the temple was built after the War to look over both the Sky Realm and the Astral Realm.
The twelve cardinal points are governed by the Twelve Divine Generals, each taking turns to be guardian for a year.
This year is the turn of the monkey temple in the west-southwest, and Andira has been chosen as the guardian.
Continue 3
Vyrn: Wow, I would never have guessed someone like you would be given that kind of responsibility!
Vyrn: It's amazing they let someone as young as you be in charge of an entire temple!
Andira: Not really.
Lyria: No, it really is! And you have amazing powers! Like before when there were two of you!
Andira: That was just a magic trick. It's a skill that's been passed down through the generations in my family.
Andira: It started with one ancestor of mine who traveled with a great monk called "Sanzo"…
The girl slumps her head, as though she was hiding something.
Lyria: Did something happen with this "Sanzo"?
Andira: Erm… well… the legend of "Sanzo" is… well you actually remind me of it.
Vyrn: What are you trying to say? Start from the beginning!
Andira: I'm just saying… Helping people without any thought to your own safety…
Andira: (Captain) really reminds me of Sanzo.
For some reason Andira seems to get a little angry as she points to (Captain).
Andira: Long ago my ancestor joined with Sanzo on a journey to a distant land known as "Tenjiku."
Andira: Ever since I first heard the story I've always longed to go to Tenjiku.
Andira: Now I'm thinking that if I join with you guys, that maybe I'll get the chance to find Tenjiku.
Andira looks out at the horizon.
Andira: …This is something I've been waiting my whole life to do.
Andira: (Captain), will you allow me to join you in your travels?
  1. Let's find this "Tenjiku"!
  2. Of course, buddy!

Choose: Let's find this "Tenjiku"!
Andira: Are you serious?
Andira: Yay! I can't tell you how much this means to me! Thank you so much!

Choose: Of course, buddy!
Andira: Buddy, I like the sound of that!
Andira: All right, let's do this together!
Andira: Heehee. And don't worry, I'll protect you from whatever comes our way!
Continue 4
Andira: And I'll of course help out your two companions, as well.
Vyrn: Huh? What do you mean, "companions"?
Andira: I thought you two, the red one and blue one, were (Captain)'s traveling companions.
Vyrn: I… I'm not a companion!
Lyria: Hee hee, calm down now, Vyrn.
Vyrn: I'm not gonna be shut up this time!
Vyrn: I'm not just a "companion," I'm (Captain)'s oldest and closest friend!
Andira: Oh, well I do apologize. I was being rude.
Vyrn: Humph… Well put.
Andira: Ah!
Lyria: Is something wrong?
Andira: There's something important I forgot to tell you!
Vyrn: What is it?
Andira: I'll have to get permission to leave from my grandfather!
Lyria: What!
Andira: If we don't then the whole temple will wonder where I've gone!
Lyria: Hee hee…
(…I'd totally forgotten that she's still just a child…)
Vyrn: OK! First we go to your house, then we go on an adventure!
And so Andira's journey with the Grandcypher crew begins.
Andira gets permission to leave from her grandfather, and she officially becomes a member of the crew.

Andira's Journey to the Sky[edit]

Andira, the newest member to (Captain)'s crew, shows a great deal of interest in a particular job. It is a job investigating the cause of a fire burning on a nearby mountain. Deciding to take the job, the crew set sail for the island where the burning mountain is. While relaxing on the deck of the airship, Andira starts to groom (Captain)'s hair. A monster appears suddenly, interrupting their moment of relaxation.



Several days have passed since Andira joined (Captain)'s crew.
She appears to have taken to life on the airship like a duck to water.
Vyrn: Hey, Andira! Wake up, ya sleepy head!
Vyrn has come to wake up Andira, who despite it being after noon had still not appeared from her cabin.
Andira: I'm awake… Just five more minutes…
Vyrn: You said that yesterday, then stayed in bed until evening!
Andira: Thanks, I knew you'd understand…
Vyrn: You're not listening to a word I'm saying, are you?
Lyria: Hee hee… I don't think anything or anyone can get between Andira and her sleep.
(Captain) turns up to see what was happening.
Seeing Andira still asleep, (Captain) let's out a laugh.
Andira: Huh? (Captain)?
Andira: Yawn… Good timing, I was just about to get up.
Andira stretches out with her tail and swings down to (Captain).
Unfortunately, Andira is still half asleep…
Vyrn: What the?
The crew have all gathered together. They are discussing where they shall go next when Andira interjects.
She mentions a mountain covered in brilliant flame that they she wants to check out. She wants to know the cause of the flame.
Andira: Hey, hey! I wanna go here!
Andira's enthusiasm and insistent look is enough to make the crew head straight for the mountain.
(Captain) and Andira are out on the deck of the airship, whiling away the hours by basking in the sun.
Andira: Your hair looks a bit weird today…
Andira: Oh no, look! A split end!
Andira starts grooming (Captain) without giving a moment's thought as to whether it would be weird.
Andira: Your fur still isn't quite fluffy enough for my liking, (Captain).
A monster's roar interrupts their moment of tranquility.
Andira: Oh, seriously? Can't we have a moment's peace?
Andira: Come on, let's get to work.

Andira's Journey to the Sky: Scene 2[edit]

(Captain) and crew arrive at the burning mountain. Andira reveals that her interest in the mountain stems from a family legend, involving one of her ancestors called "Sanzo," who is said to have visited such a place. As they approach the foot of the mountain their way is blocked by the appearance of two ruffians named Gold Horn and Silver Horn, who tell them to leave. When Andira refuses to leave the two men turn into monsters and chase after the crew.



The crew arrive at an unusual mountain that has one side set aflame.
Vyrn: Andira, why did this job interest you so much?
Andira: Well, about that. There is a legend in my family…
Andira: And part of it involves someone called "Sanzo" and a flaming mountain.
Lyria: I see! So you're looking to learn more about this legend!
Andira: That's right. Though, I doubt I'll find anything. Even if this is the mountain in the legend, it's a story from long ago.
The crew continue talking as they head ever closer to the burning mountain.
???: Halt! What business have you here?
Two rough looking men appear suddenly before the crew.
Andira: We're here to investigate the flaming mountain. And who are you?
???: You don't need to know that. Now, turn around and go back the way you came.
Andira: Understood. And if we could, believe me we would.
Andira: Unfortunately we have been sent here, we can't just leave. You shall have to let us past.
???: …Very well then. Gold Horn, it's time.
Gold Horn: Understood, Silver Horn.
The two men transform into monsters.
Vyrn: Whoa, they were monsters the whole time!
Andira: Everyone calm down, we can handle this.
Lyria: O… OK
Andira: First things first, me and (Captain) have to take on these things.
Andira: OK, let's go!

Andira's Journey to the Sky: Scene 3[edit]

The monsters, now defeated, return to their human form. Seeing the crew's true potential, the ruffians seem to have a change of heart and ask the skyfarers for help. It seems their brother, known as Demon Horn, has gone on a rampage and they can't stop him. This is why they stopped [:nickname in the first place; they didn't want anyone else to get hurt. (Captain) and crew decide to take on the frenzied beast.



Losing the battle Gold Horn and Silver Horn turn back into humans and surrender.
Gold Horn: You… You're not like the other skyfarers we've come across.
Silver Horn: You're right. They might even be able to stop him.
Andira: Now, would you be willing to talk?
With a glance to each other as though in search of support, Gold Horn and Silver Horn give in and agree to help.
The crew listen to the two ruffians' story as they continue farther into the woods.
Gold Horn: There were three of us originally. But a few months ago our older brother, Demon Horn, started actin' strange.
Silver Horn: The mountain is the way it is because of our brother. He did this…
Andira: I see.
Gold Horn: He was always a lot stronger than us, so even if we wanted to there's nothing we could do to stop him.
Silver Horn: That's when we started stopping travelers from going any farther. We didn't want anyone else to get hurt.
Gold Horn: Please, we need your help. Try and get our brother back under control.
Andira: …About that…
Gold Horn and Silver Horn's story seemed to affect Andira, who seemed to be lost for words.
Andira: What do you think, (Captain)?
  1. This sounds like a family matter.
  2. Maybe there's something we can do.

Choose: This sounds like a family matter.
Andira: Right? I think we'd only be getting in the way if we interfere now.

Choose: Maybe there's something we can do.
Andira: Heehee, that's just like you, (Captain).
Andira: Let's think about it a bit more.
Continue 1
All of a sudden, a massive roar that shook the ground swept over them accompanied by a wave of searing heat.
Gold Horn: Brother… Is there anything left of you in there…
Vyrn: That's your brother? Jeez, you weren't lying when you said he was strong.
Silver Horn: We'll do what we can, but please, help our brother!
Demon Horn: GROARGH!
Andira doesn't react at all to the sudden appearance of the giant monster, and instead turns to (Captain) and others.
Andira: I'll go in first.
(Captain) is worried for Andira.
Andira: Don't worry. He'll never be able to hit me.
Andira lets out a mischievous laugh.
Andira: Once I draw his fire, (Captain), you have to find an opening and then give it all you got!
Lyria: Andira, are you sure you'll be OK?
Demon Horn: GROARGH!
Andira: Huh?
Demon Horn comes in with a massive attack. Andira deftly dodges, dragging Lyria out of the line of fire as she does.
Lyria: Th-thank you…
Andira: Phew, that was close.
Andira: OK, just leave the rest up to me.
With a flourish of her scepter as long as Andira herself she turned to face Demon Horn.
Andira: Hey, over here! I'm the one you want to be fighting, aren't I!
Andira: I, the wielder of the power of the Monkey King, gladly accept your challenge!
Andira shows a hint of anger, but quickly recovers back to her calm self.
Andira: OK, now let's take this monster down!

Andira's Journey to the Sky: Scene 4[edit]

(Captain) and the crew try to confront Demon Horn, but no matter what they do he won't tire out. Andira senses how desperate the situation has become, and so uses her magic to create several clones of herself. One clone slips past Demon Horn's attacks and is able to place a gold headband on his head. As Andira incants a spell, Demon Horn calms down, and becomes human once again. Seeing that the flames on the burning mountain have started to recede, Andira feels closer than ever to (Captain) and the crew.



The crew are battling with Demon Horn. However, his seemingly limitless reserves of energy are slowly wearing them down.
Andira: Ugh… At this rate we'll be done for before long.
Andira: (Captain), can you take over for a bit?
With a nod (Captain)switched with Andira at the front of their attack.
Andira: I'm pretty tired, so I don't know how effective this'll be…
Andira pulled out a few strands of her hair and blew them softly toward the monster.
Andira: Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations… Transform!
All at once there seemed to be countless Andiras.
Andira: Go!
From within the blinding light came forth a torrent of attacking forms.
One of the forms slipped past the monsters attacks, removed the halo from around its own head and placed it on Demon Horn's.
Andira: Magic Headband, I order you to bind this creature!
The Monkey King's golden headband tightened over Demon Horn's head.
As Andira continues with her incantation Demon Horn slowly starts to shrink, and eventually turns back into a human.
Gold Horn: Brother?
Silver Horn: Brother!
Gold Horn and Silver Horn rush to Demon Horn's side.
Demon Horn: Brothers, what's going on…
Seeing the embracing brothers, Andira is filled with a great sense of relief.
Andira: Hah hah hah… It… worked…
Andira had used up the last of her strength to bring Demon Horn back, and she faints in (Captain)'s arms.
Some time later
Andira awakens to a soft and pleasant jolting.
In front of her she sees (Captain)'s back.
Andira: Yaaawn… How long was I out?
Vyrn: We still have a ways to go before we get to the ship, you should rest up a bit more!
Andira: Oh, Vyrn… Aren't you going to tell me to get up?
Vyrn: What! Would I do a thing like that?
Andira: Hee hee… I'm sorry. I was trying to make a joke.
Lyria: You know, those three brothers were really thankful for what you did back there!
Vyrn: They said that even the fire on the mountain might start to die down.
Andira: …Really? That's nice…
Lyria: Hmm? Is something wrong?
Vyrn: Are you down because we didn't find anything about Tenjiku?
Andira: No… That's not it…
Andira stops herself, then starts up again slowly, obviously very embarrassed.
Andira: You see… I… I'm an only child…
Andira: I was just thinking how nice it must be to have brothers and sisters who will be there for you.
Lyria looks over at the forlorn Andira, then offers her a suggestion.
Lyria: In that case, you can think of me as your sister!
Andira: What! But… you can't just come out and say that…
Lyria: Why not?
Lyria: You're always getting on so well with (Captain), I was getting a bit jealous!
Andira: What? There's no need to be!
Andira: I… I want to stay with all of you, just like (Captain)!
Lyria: Then, why don't you try this? Try calling (Captain) sister!
Andira: What? Why would I do that?
Lyria: Don't think about it too much, just go right ahead and say it. Ready… Go!
Andira: …You're acting strange today, Lyria. I don't get what you're trying to say!
Lyria: You don't have to always take things so seriously, you know.
Andira: OK, I get it! I should… I should just say it!
Lyria: Yes! Just give it a go!
With a loud gulp, Andira starts forming the word.
Andira: S… Sister…
Andira: No! I can't do it! It's too weird!
Lyria: It's not weird! That sounded really natural just now!
Lyria: Come on, try it again.
Andira: I told you I can't!
Vyrn and (Captain) watch on and laugh as Lyria and Andira argue.
Vyrn: You'd think they would've noticed by now…
Vyrn: That they're already more like sisters than most real sisters. Don't you think, (Captain)?
(Captain) laughs at Vyrn's observation.
Andira: What are you two laughing at?
Andira: You have to stop Lyria!
Lyria: Hey, where are you going? It's my turn now!
Lyria: Come on, call me sister!
From that day on, Lyria and Andira grow ever closer day by day.
Andira's relationship with the crew continues to change, day by day, as they continue on their journey.

Fluffy Friends[edit]

One day near the end of the year, Anila, Guardian Deity of the South-Southwest, goes to visit Andira, Guardian Deity of the West-Southwest, for a transfer of duties. Overjoyed at the overdue reunion, Andira asks Anila to do that thing she does. Anila happily complies and summons a flock of sheep from a magic circle. Surrounded by the fleecy creatures, Andira takes full delight in their fluffy goodness.



One day near the end of the year, Anila goes to see Andira.
Andira: Oh, Anila!
Anila: Heh heh heh, I see you're doing well as ever, Andira!
Anila and Andira rejoice in seeing each other again after such a long time.
Andira: Hello... Oh, that's right! You must be here for the passing of the baton!
Anila: Of course. This is the last part of my job, after all.
Andira: Then I must congratulate you on your hard work!
Anila: Ha ha, don't you sound all grown up!
Andira: Well even I can't be a little kid forever!
Anila smiles to see how Andira has matured since her last visit.
Anila: Still...I wonder if I can really trust you with this.
Anila: I know...you're not all that much younger than the others, but...
Andira: Come on, Anila! You worry too much!
Andira responds to Anila's concern with a pout.
Anila: Ahem... How rude of me.
Anila: I apologize. Is there anything I can do to make you feel better?
Still staring at her feet, Andira steals a glimpse at Anila's face.
Suddenly, as if the hurt feelings never existed, a smile lights up Andira's face.
Andira: I know...you can do that thing you always do!
Anila: Oh, for goodness' sake... You were you pulling my leg this whole time, weren't you?
Andira: Heh heh, you figured it out?
Anila can't help but smile at Andira's mischievous grin.
Anila: Honestly... You really do like that, don't you?
Anila: Although...I do admit, I'm rather fond of it myself.
With that, she thrusts her spear into the earth.
Anila: I am Anila, guardian of the sheep shrine. By my name, I command my brethren... Come forth, ovine multitude!
In answer to Anila's incantation, a magic circle appears over the ground.
Fluffy sheep come flying out of the circle one after another.
Andira: Woohoo! I'm surrounded by fluff!
Anila: Oh, no... I can do much more than this. Behold!
To prove her boast, Anila continues to summon sheep ad infinitum.
Now covered in woolly creatures, Andira takes full delight in their fluffy goodness.
Andira: So fluffy...
Anila: Heh heh heh... Cute little guys. And it makes me grin sheepishly to see how much they please you.
Anila takes Andira in a sisterly embrace.
Thus, their time together flies by in the twinkling of an eye.
Anila: Well... I suppose I should be on my way...
Andira: Come on, there's no need to rush!
Anila: There you go, acting like a kid again...
Anila: Where's that clever little adult I saw earlier?
Andira: Alright, alright... I get your point.
Anila: Remember, this is only goodbye for a short while... We'll meet again soon enough.
Andira is reluctant to say goodbye. It's as though she thinks this will be the last time they ever see each other.
Anila: You're hopeless, you know that? But if you're ever in trouble, you can call on me, okay? I promise.
Andira: ...What! Really?
Anila: Well, I'm practically your big sister, aren't I? Of course!
Andira: Thank you, Anila!
Thus, the yearly duties were safely passed on from the Sheep to the Monkey of the Twelve Divine Generals.
Undoubtedly, a deep bond had formed between the two, stronger than any mere professional relationship.

Girls of a Feather[edit]

Andira visits the Rooster Temple to bequeath her responsibilities to Mahira, who reveals that she's built a tiny airship to make her dreams of flight a reality. Before taking over the burden of year spirit, Mahira enjoys a fun day of carefree flying with Andira.



Andira pays a visit to the Rooster Temple. Her reason for being here is to pass on the role of year spirit to Mahira, her successor.
Andira: Oh, there you are, Mahi!
Mahira: It's been a while, Andie. Grown a little taller since last time?
Andira: Hee hee... I've done quite a bit of growing on my end! What about you, Mahi?
Mahira: Mm. About a millimeter this year.
Andira: Whoa, nice! Just a little bit more to your goal!
Mahira: Just a little bit more. So what brings you here? Oh! Are you here to pass on your responsibilities?
Andira: Yeah! But first...
Andira: Infinite diversity in infinite combinations... Transform!
Andira: Quiz time! Which one's the real me?
Mahira: Another one of your monkey quizzes? You can't fool me!
Andira: Hee hee... We'll see about that!
Mahira: You haven't fooled me yet, so... Hm?
Andira: Mahi's sweating bullets! Will she be able to pull it together?
Mahira: ...
Mahira: The one on the right? Made you look! Left!
Andira: Woah!
Andira: You got me! But how could you tell?
Mahira: Tough to say. The one on the left just seemed extra Andira-ful.
Andira: Huh? Just a hunch? And after I spent all that time training too...
Mahira: It was definitely tougher than last time though! You've improved a lot during your time as year spirit!
Mahira: You deserve an extra round of applause for all your efforts this past year.
Andira: Oh, Mahi... You don't have to give me any extra applause.
Mahira: Anyway. This is the year of the West. My turn, right?
Andira: Yup! I'm rooting for you! Ready to get your head in the game?
Mahira: Hm... More or less?
Andira: Haha! A very Mahi reaction. Anila's been worried about you too, you know!
Andira: Your lack of enthusiasm isn't very reassuring.
Mahira: I guess. I'll do my job, okay? I'm not about to let everyone at the Rooster Temple down.
Andira: How's Grandma Rooster been doing? She seemed to be in high spirits when she paid me a visit!
Andira: Oh, that's right! This is like a dream come true for you, right, Mahi?
Mahira: My dream? Oh right. We talked about this before, didn't we?
Andira: You want to soar across the skies, right? I bet you'll be able to ride my cloud this time!
Mahira: Hm... I wonder. Don't you need to be part of a special bloodline for that?
Andira: It should be able to give you a freebie! Go ahead. Hop on!
Mahira: Thanks, but... I'm okay. Really.
Mahira: I've got plenty of growing ahead of me this year, Andie.
Mahira: Cock-a-doodle-dum. Wing-a-doodle-fly!
Mahira: Ba-bam.
Andira: Wow, that was amazing! You made your own personal airship?
Mahira: Yep. It's named Clucky.
Andira: Haha! Nice to meet you, Clucky!
Andira: Oh, I know! How about we go flying around a bit? Before you take over for me, I mean.
Mahira: Okay. I'm gonna leave you in the dust!
Andira: Hee hee! Not if I can help it!
The two girls soar off into the sky with smiles on their faces.
A rare privilege afforded only to the Twelve Divine Generals.
Unburdened by their usual responsibilities, Andira and Mahira enjoy a rare chance to act their age... For the time being anyway.
