Happy Birthday Cutscenes
# Link Text

Happy birthday!
Are there any other musicians on board the Grandcypher? I'd like to form an orchestra.
Why? Well, because it's your birthday! I'd like to be able to perform an amazing birthday song for you!
Hehe! Just wait, I'll get it organized!


Happy Birthday! It's your special day, (Captain)!
It's already been a year since your last birthday. Time sure flies. Allow me to play a song for you in celebration.
Hm? Something's wrong with my lyre...
Ahahaha... Um... Well, how about I give you a nice book later instead?
We'll save your song for next year.


Happy birthday, (Captain)!
How about this year I give you... a soothing massage?
Do I have the muscle, you say? Hehe, I'm almost offended. I am strong enough to wield a sword, you know.
Come now. Face your back to me.
Let's get rid of all those knots! Nngh!


Happy birthday, (Captain).
Don't look so frightened! I know I used a bit too much pressure in last year's birthday massage...
But this year I've decided on a healing technique that doesn't require any muscle. So. On your belly, please.
Tap, tap, tap...
Gently tapping someone's back in a steady rhythm can soothe them to sleep.
Tap, tap, tap...
Hushaby... and good night...
Sleep well, (Captain). And happy birthday.


Happy birthday, (Captain).
Since you're always so busy, this year I composed a special piece for you to relax to. Will you listen to it?
Hehe, don't worry. I already tuned my lyre before coming.
So it won't be like what happened a few years before!
Well then, here goes. The title is... Hm, let's make it "A Lullaby to Celebrate Your Birth."
Oh, are you starting to feel sleepy?
You can just relax and go to sleep. I'll wake you up when it's time for the party to start.
Hehe. Sweet dreams, (Captain).

Happy New Year.
I hear that in a certain land, they celebrate the new year by playing special music using something called a... Hmm, what was it called again?
It's sort of like a harp but has a much stronger, disciplined sound...
Ah, Koto? Yes, I think that's it. Haha, I can't believe I forgot that.


Happy New Year, (Captain). Would you like to go out to town and visit a nearby temple?
Nothing feels better than immersing yourself in the serene atmosphere of a temple on a fresh New Year's day.
Well, come on then. Let's not start your near year off cooped up in bed.


Happy New Year, (Captain).
Hm? You want a New Year's present? All right, but you have to listen to a song first!
Hehe. How was it? It was a song about a man who gave up material wealth to seek holiness.
Oh? You don't need that present anymore? But I got it just for you...


Happy New Year, (Captain).
I hope you've been keeping warm?
Catching a cold today wouldn't be the best way to start the new year.
Huh? Me? Now that you ask, I do feel a bit cold in this outfit.
Is that your way of saying you have a coat ready for me as a present?
Haha, just kidding. But it sure would be nice to go shopping in town today though.
Care to come with me, (Captain)? Haha. C'mon, it'll be fun.


Cough, cough... Oh, (Captain). Happy New Year.
I'm sorry. I seem to have caught a cold...
I wouldn't want to pass it on to anyone, so I'll go back to my room now.
Huh? You'll look after me? A-are you sure?
Hehe, thank you. To be honest, it's nice to have someone around when you're sick.
I'm really glad you offered.
Will you stay by my side until I fall asleep, (Captain)?

Valentine's Day Cutscenes
# Link Text

Oh, (Captain), I made some chocolates for you. Would you like to have them?
I put a serenade into the chocolates. How? Hehe, well...
I'll let you find that out yourself.


(Captain), I've tried to make some chocolates this year as well. I hope you like it.
Yes, I did try it, but...
It was so good I just... couldn't stop. I had to make another batch.
I barely had enough ingredients, so I couldn't taste this batch. But I'm sure it'll be all right... I hope.


Sorry to keep you waiting, (Captain)! Here are the chocolates I've made this year! Won't you enjoy them while I play you a song?
Sweet chocolate and smooth melody go so well together, don't you think? They say it's quite like the feeling of love.
I wonder who you'll fall in love with, (Captain). Be sure to let me listen to your song of love when you do.


After melting the chocolate, you want to scoop it up like this. Slowly, softly...
It's rather similar to playing a string instrument. That's why I enjoy the act so much...
Your turn, (Captain).
Picture the face of the person you'll be giving it to, and remember to be gentle.
So do you have someone's face in mind yet? Me? I'm thinking of yours, of course. Hehe, only kidding.

A present? Hehe, thanks! You didn't need to go out of your way.
But that's what makes you who you are, (Captain)! That you care is just proof you're made to be our captain.


A gift for White Day? Hehe, thank you. You didn't have to.
I know. As thanks I'll let you in on a secret of mine.
It's nothing big... But I'm actually better with swords than harps. Hehe, It's true!


Oh, a White Day gift for me? Why thank you.
I'll tell you another secret this time then. Actually, this lyre can be used for self defense.
You swing it like this and aim for the head or neck!
Hehe. Pretty cool, huh?


Thanks for inviting me to make White Day confectioneries with you, (Captain).
I really enjoy this kind of thing, you know. After all, I get to sneak in a few bites here and ther—
Because baking sweets is just so much fun! Haha!

Trick or Treat Cutscenes
# Link Text

Oh, it's Halloween? I might not look it, but when I was young, I loved playing pranks on people with my lyre.
I played low notes to instill fear in the townspeople while my costumed friends banged on their doors.
Hee hee! I could hear them screaming with fright. It's been a while, so maybe I'll try that one again tonight!


I'm going to play a peaceful requiem for the restless, wandering souls.
Hm? You made pumpkin pudding with leftovers from the jack-o-lantern? First come, first served?
And our requiem is complete! Please excuse me; I'll be in the mess hall.


Hmm, maybe I should join in the fun and play a few tricks of my own? Everyone looks like they're really enjoying themselves.
And I know just who to start with. Hehe. Oh, (Captain)!
Would you fancy hearing a scary song?
Th-that's! I see you've made pumpkin pudding this year as well...
Well... I can't play a trick on you now, can I?
Hehe. A pleasure doing business with you, (Captain).


Happy Halloween, (Captain).
Do you have a costume ready? I'm sure you'd look dashing in anything.
What should I choose? Something related to one of our adventures together?
Oh, you know what might be perfect? A school uniform. What do you think? Could I pull it off?


(Captain), trick or treat!
Hehe. Let me guess—did you make pumpkin pudding again this year?
What? Not this year?
Oh... Well, then I suppose it's time for me to play a melody that strikes fear into your—
Hm? It's not pudding but pie this year?
(Captain)! You need to tell me these things sooner!
Fine, I'll say it one more time. (Captain), trick or treat!
Now give me some pumpkin pie.

Happy Holidays Cutscenes
# Link Text

What comes to mind when you think about holiday music? I imagine it depends on the person.
Young people think of lighter songs, the older generation thinks of solemn classics. What do I think of?
Well... Why don't I play some for you?


I hope my song may please the gods on this most holy night.
Hm? You made gingerbread cookies? There might not be enough to go around?
All right, performance is over. Where were those cookies again? I see. Excuse me, I'll be right back.


Looks like it's the season again. Time for another song for the gods. Don't worry, this year I'll follow the song all the way through. I made sure to eat before I start.
Hehe. I actually asked the cook to slip me a couple of bites just now.
What? Cheating? This is for the gods after all. Some rules have to be bent if need be!


Okay, now for the twelfth song...
Haha... I can keep going. I need to stay focused on something, or I won't be able to stand the wait.
I was so surprised coming to this town. I'd never considered such a way to enjoy the festivities.
I can already picture the juices leaking from its plump, well-done body as I sink my teeth into it...
I don't think I can bear the wait for the roasted pig much longer...


Oh, (Captain)! What are you doing still up at this time?
Me? I suddenly got the urge to play my lyre...
So I came out here to strum a few notes by myself.
If you're not busy, would you like to listen to me play something?
It'd be nice if there was somebody here to listen...
Hehe, thank you. Then this will be a special performance that's only for your ears, (Captain).
Hmm, let's see... I'll name this "A Holiday Carol Just for You." What do you think?

Musician of the Gods[edit]

On their journey, the crew meets the lyre player, Arriet. Her performance captivates everyone, even a monster that intrudes into the town. She really is full of surprises. Arriet’s goal is to eliminate all conflict from the world with her lyre music as she travels around. Lyria is amazed by the performance and by Arriet herself, and invites her to join the crew on their journey, but Arriet seems to have a personal issue, and doesn’t seem enthusiastic about joining. The group eventually helps her to change her mind, and Arriet joins (Captain)’s crew.

While taking a break in a town on an island, the crew saw a crowd of people gathering.
As they got closer, they could hear the smooth sound of a lyre being played.
Townsperson 1: Wow… What beautiful music…
Townsperson 2: Is that the woman who's lyre-playing skill is said to be a gift from the gods? Everyone's heard of her now!
Lyria: Wow… The music is lovely.
Vyrn: And she's so popular! Everyone's gathering round!
Lyria: Ahh, it's such a relaxing sound… Mind if we stay and listen for a bit?
Vyrn: Sounds good! Let's go and sit under that tree?
Townsperson 3: Aaaaah! Monsters! Help!
Monster: Graaraaraagh!
Vyrn: M-monsters! How did they get into the town?
Lyria: This is bad, (Captain)! We need to…
Performer: Oh dear, are you not happy over there?
The girl, who had been performing the whole time, moved over to where the monster was standing.
Vyrn: Hey, watch it, missy! That thing's dangerous!
Lyria: Run away! We don't want anyone to get hurt!
Performer: Do not worry. I will be fine. Just watch…
Monster: Grrrrr….
Performer: Ah, you want me to play you a song? I shall play you a relaxing sonata, to calm your raging heart dear beast.
The girl started playing a relaxing song on her lyre. The soft sounds echoed around the square, and…
Lyria: Wha-? What's going on?
Vyrn: Woah, you cannot be serious! That monster's transfixed!
When the song had finished, the monster simply turned around and calmly walked away.
Performer: Heehee. Thank you for listening.
Performer: See? It does depend a little on the type of monster, but the power of music is so moving, isn't it!
Vyrn: Yeah, that was sweet!
Lyria: Yes, it was fantastic! The whole performance was just amazing!
Lyria: From the moment you started playing, everything seemed sparkly, like we were inside a star!
Lyria: What was that song called? Do you think if I practiced I could learn to play it too? And your instrument?
Performer: Hey, why not calm down first?
Lyria: Ah, I'm sorry. I…
Performer: Heehee. Thank you. I'm happy that I got a new fan who's so adorable.
Performer: Alright, I'll show you a little sample for free. Try plucking the strings on my lyre.
Lyria: Wha-? Is it really okay?
Performer: Okay, now move your finger to the next string… Great, you're a natural!
Lyria: I played some notes!
They relaxed with the girl, whose name was Arriet. She was travelling around, playing music in various locations.
Vyrn: You're not bad, Lyria! You learnt to play a whole song!
Lyria: Yes! All thanks to Arriet!
Arriet: Not at all. Lyria, you have a natural talent for music!
Arriet: We should travel around and play together as a duo! Won't you join me?
Vyrn: Hey hey hey! You can't do that! Lyria's travelling with us, to?
Arriet: Heehee, only joking. Sorry, little guy!
Lyria: Arriet, do you always travel alone when you're playing?
Arriet: Indeed I do. To improve my skills and practice.
Arriet: To soothe the hearts of the people, to calm raging monsters… I want to put the world at peace with my music.
Arriet: Because, I think I could even soothe the Primal Beasts with this lyre.
Vyrn: Wow! Judging by your performance in the square, you can definitely achieve that!
Lyria: Oh! In that case, Arriet, why not come with us on our journey?
Arriet: Hmm? With… you?
Lyria: Of course! We're an airship crew!
Arriet: An airship crew… I see.
Arriet: An airship crew… Right…
Vyrn: What's up? You don't want to fly with an airship crew?
Arriet: Well… It's not exactly against the rules, but…
Vyrn: Huh? You're not being very clear, Arriet…
Arriet: I've got a lot to deal with at the moment. Sorry.
Lyria: So.. Is that a no, then?
Lyria: We go to a lot of different islands, I thought it would be ideal for you to come as well, Arriet…
Lyria: And… I wanted to hear you perform again.
Arriet: Heehee, I'm honored to hear it. But I don't know…
  1. Come on, it'll be fun!
  2. What's wrong?

Choose: Come on, it'll be fun!
Arriet: You too?

Choose: What's wrong?
Arriet: I wonder if it'd be a problem… No one's done it before…
Continue 1
Arriet: Hmmm…
Arriet: Well, it does let me acomplish my own business. But what about the knights… Or the report…
Vyrn: Your business? Knights?
Arriet: Oh no, never mind. It's nothing.
Arriet: Anyway, back to the matter at hand… I'd like to accept your offer. Let's travel together!
Lyria: Really? Yay! This is the best!
Arriet: Heehee, it'll be fun!
Arriet: Oh, you can call me Ettie, all my friends do!
Lyria: Okay! We're happy to have you with us, Ettie!
And so, Arriet the musician joined the crew.
There was something mysterious about her, but her beautiful lyre music enchanted the crew as they continued their journey.

The Mysterious Musician[edit]

The crew go to an island to visit the workshop of a famous musical instrument crafter, so that Arriet can buy a new lyre. But when they arrive, they find out that the crafter has given up on making instruments. The crew learn that the Erste Empire recently conquered the island, and outlawed all artistic occupations. They agree to venture into the mountains and collect the materials to make a new instrument for Arriet, and help the craftsman to preserve his skills.

The crew landed on a certain island at the request of Arriet.
There was a famous craftsman who lived there, and Arriet wanted to order a new lyre.
Arriet: Huh, you've stopped doing business?
Instrument Crafter: Yes, I'm afraid I don't make instruments any more…
Lyria: Oh no! Why did you stop?
Instrument Crafter: Leave me alone. I've got nothing left to live for.
Vyrn: You're famous for your craft though! Isn't it a bit of a waste to stop making instruments?
Instrument Crafter: Shut up! It's all the Empire's fault, anyway…
Arriet: What do you mean?
Instrument Crafter: Well…
Instrument Crafter: …A little while ago, the Empire attacked. This island has no defenses, and they conquered it in the blink of an eye.
Instrument Crafter: They said that the arts are useless, and banned us from doing any artistic work…
Instrument Crafter: They wouldn't let me go into the mountains to gather materials for the instruments, so I couldn't do my job anymore…
Lyria: What? How could they say that music is useless?
Vyrn: That's pretty terrible…
Arriet: The Erste Empire… To think that they've expanded their territory this far…
Instrument Crafter: Well, it is what it is… Stopping was a hard thing to do, but I had no choice.
Arriet: I see…
Arriet: But are you really OK with it?
Instrument Crafter: Huh?
Arriet: The instruments you've made have healed the hearts of so many people across the world.
Arriet: Even a heart hardened to the world like yours needs music.
Arriet: As an artist, I can't forgive the Empire for leaving people in the gutter like this. Your heart belongs to music, does it not?
Instrument Crafter:
Lyria: It's just like Ettie says! The Empire made this man give up on his dreams…
Vyrn: Yeah! Hey, if you had some materials, you could get back to work, right?
Vyrn: We'll head into the mountains, grab some materials and bring them back to you! How about it, (Captain)?
Instrument Crafter: What? You guys are gonna…
Arriet: Heehee, of course! We don't even live here, so we'll be able to avoid the Empire's surveillance!
Instrument Crafter: Really? I'll find a way to pay you back, I promise!
Instrument Crafter: There are monsters in those mountains… You be careful while you're out there!
Lyria: OK! When we get back, we'll be counting on you to make Ettie her new lyre!
Instrument Crafter: Leave it to me! I may be a little rusty, but I'm a professional, I promise you!
Arriet: Heehee! OK, shall we get moving?
Vyrn: You bet! I'm not afraid of the Empire or the monsters!

The Mysterious Musician: Scene 2[edit]

The crew head into the mountains, and gather many useful instrument materials under the watchful eye of Arriet. While they were able to gather enough materials this time, they know that the island where arts have been banned needs a more permanent solution. They wonder what they can do, but monsters interrupt their thoughts and attack!

The crew were gathering instrument materials deep in the mountains. Led by Arriet, they gathered wood, iron ore and grass.
Lyria: Ettie, is this white rock OK?
Arriet: Hmm, yes, it looks like you could use it in an instrument.
Vyrn: What about that giant tree over there?
Arriet: Hmm.. I would say that the sapling next to it would be better, the acoustics are probably smoother.
Lyria: Heave-ho!
Lyria: Wow, we've gathered a lot of things!
Vyrn: Yeah! The basket is full to the brim!
Arriet: Thank you, everyone. This will definitely be enough.
Arriet: Now the craftsman will be able to start working again!
Lyria: Yay, you'll get your new lyre, Ettie!
Vyrn: But the Empire isn't going anywhere, and these ingredients aren't gonna last forever…
Arriet: You're right, Vyrn… We need to think of a more permanent solution…
Lyria: Hmm… what should we do?
Arriet: Well, let's head back for today. We can think it over some more later.
Vyrn: Yeah, let's get moving before it gets dark.
Monster: Rararrrgh!
Lyria: There are monsters coming!
Vyrn: Uh oh, I think we can make it if we run!
Arriet: No… Everyone's tired, we probably wouldn't make it.
Arriet: And, thinking about it… That monster's whiskers look like they'd make perfect lyre strings!
Lyria: Hmm, now that you mention it…
Vyrn: Guess we've got to fight then! Come on (Captain), let's go!
Arriet: Heehee, my apologies! Now, lend me your power!

The Mysterious Musician: Scene 3[edit]

The instrument craftsman’s eyes sparkle at the sight of all the materials that (Captain) and the crew have collected. He starts to get to work on Arriet’s new lyre, but some imperial soldiers appear and try to confiscate the materials. Seeing their greed, Arriet asks the soldiers if they actually have permission from the Empire for their ban on the arts. The soldiers falter, but then raise their weapons and attack the crew!

The crew defeated the monsters and returned to town, handing over the materials they had gathered to the craftsman.
Instrument Crafter: Thank you so much! With this I'll be able to make instruments again!
Instrument Crafter: First order of business, a lyre for the young lady. Leave it to me, I'll have it finished before you know it!
Arriet: Thank you, I'm looking forward to it!
Lyria: Heehee! You seem much happier now, Mr. Craftsman.
Vyrn: His eyes are sparkling, I guess he really missed his work!
Imperial Soldier: Hey, you! What are you doing?
Lyria: Eek!
Imperial Soldier: Outsiders? We've heard about you…
Imperial Soldier: You're the thieves who snuck into our territory and stole our precious resources!
Vyrn: Who are you calling a thief? These resources didn't belong to the Empire in the first place!
Lyria: Yes! The things on this island belong to the islanders, not you!
Imperial Soldier: Heh, you don't understand a thing, do you? This island, and everything on it, is the Empire's.
Imperial Soldier: Looks like you've got some materials to make into musical instruments. We're confiscating them, hand them over!
Instrument Crafter: Grrr…
Imperial Soldier: Hehehe, what's wrong? Would you prefer me to throw you in a cell, you pathetic loser?
Arriet: (sigh)
Arriet: Well, this really is inexcusable. I didn't want to cause a scene, but…
Lyria: Erm… Ettie?
Arriet: You men call yourselves imperial soldiers? You're not even worthy of that name!
Imperial Soldier: What?! How dare you!
Arriet: Meaningless oppression, unnecessary control… Do you even have permission from the Empire to do any of this?
Imperial Soldier: Huh!
Arriet: Heehee, I think I hit the nail on the head.
Vyrn: Permission? What do you mean, Arriet?
Imperial Soldier: You swine… I don't know who you think you are, but we're not gonna let you get away with this!
Lyria: Eek, they're attacking!
Arriet: (Captain), are you ready? Let's give these buffoons a dramatic finale!

The Mysterious Musician: Scene 4[edit]

Arriet’s lyre is finished, and the once-banned sound of music echoes around the island for the first time what seemed like an age. It soothes hearts of the islanders and relaxes everyone who hears it. When the crew starts to return to the ship, Arriet disappears, saying that she has business to attend to. She has a secret meeting with a mysterious knight, who somehow loosens the Empire’s control on the island…

The crew defeated the imperial soldiers. Arriet's new lyre was finished, and she decided to test it out.
No sooner had she done this than a crowd of listeners began to form around them, enraptured by her playing.
Lyria: Wow, this has become a real concert!
Vyrn: Yeah! Mr. Craftsman is super happy too!
Arriet: Heehee, this is a fantastic lyre. Thank you, everyone.
Lyria: Haha, I'm glad we got such a lovely reward for everything we did.
Vyrn: Oh yeah… what did you mean when you were talking earlier?
Vyrn: You asked those soldiers if they had "permission from the Empire," didn't you?
Arriet: Ah… well, that doesn't matter now…
Arriet: But think about it. I know that the Erste Empire is arrogant, but do they really need to suppress the arts?
Arriet: If they abuse their power, the productivity of their territory will fall, and then there's no point in even ruling it!
Lyria: Uh huh… So, does that mean…
Arriet: It means that the soldiers here were acting on their own, against the will of the Empire.
Arriet: I'm just guessing, but it seems to explain the situation.
Vyrn: Ohhh… So that's why they got so angry.
Arriet: Yes. They'd be in big trouble if the Empire found out about what they've been doing.
Arriet: But this island will be fine, I know it.
Lyria: Huh, how?
Arriet: Heehee! I wonder…
Lyria: I don't understand…
Arriet: I'm just going to step out for a minute. I'll meet you back at the Grandcypher, okay?
Vyrn: Oh, okay. Where are you going?
Arriet: Oh, I just have some business I need to attend to.
Arriet walked away from the crew, smiling and with a spring in her step.
The crew thought that something was strange, but put it out of their minds as they walked back to the Grandcypher.
Arriet: …Yes, the Empire's control has been spreading rapidly.
Arriet: It seems that rogue regiments acting on their own are on the rise. Yes, just as you predicted.
Arriet: …What are your orders, my lord?
Blue Knight: ………
A few days later, the oppression of the island's citizens suddenly stopped.
But who was the mysterious person behind the scenes? It would be a while longer before the crew found out…
