Happy Birthday Cutscenes
# Link Text

Happy birthday, (Captain).
The day you came into this world is one truly worthy of celebration.
As the wielder of the aegis and the shield, I will do all that I can to make your journey an easier one.
That being said, things will not always go so smoothly.
There will be times where you will have no choice but to fight.
But do not despair, for you have my shield. Please never hesitate to call upon my help when needed.
As long as I can wield my power, I will be there to protect you.
Not because of my obligation as a primal beast, but of my own volition.


(Captain), happy birthday.
I am most grateful for the opportunity to once again celebrate a day so important to you.
I've learned and gained so much through meeting you, (Captain).
Although some of it has been more abstract, like the joy I've derived from our many irreplaceable memories together.
I vowed to go above and beyond in keeping you safe from harm, but I fear that is not enough to repay you for all that you have given me.
Yet as battle is all that I know, please allow me to make another vow.
For as long as this journey continues, and as long as I am able, I swear to be the aegis that shields you from all harm.
And if at all possible, at least until your journey's end, I pray that the world will be at peace, without any trouble nor quarrel.
Haha. It always pleases my heart to put such thoughts into words. Strange, isn't it?


Happy birthday, (Captain). I'm glad to celebrate your birthday once more.
I love how cozy it always is on the Grandcypher, but today is an especially blissful day.
I have no doubt that it's a result of all your hard work in making this a comfortable place for us all.
You still have a long way to go, you say?
Haha, your unremitting diligence never ceases to impress.
The candidness and sincerity in your eyes is incredibly inspiring.
As one who serves to protect others, and especially this crew, I wish to learn from your example.
In our journey ahead, I will continue striving to protect us from any and all threats.
So that we may celebrate in peace again when your next birthday comes.

Happy New Year Cutscenes
# Link Text

Ah, (Captain). Good morn—er, no... That isn't right, um... Happy New Year.
Was that the proper greeting?
I must confess, I merely heard the others saying it to each other this morning.
So I was merely repeating what they said... Did I do it right?
Oh, thank goodess! I was afraid I would say it wrong.
Let me try once more then. Ahem.
I wish you a happy New Year, (Captain), and many more to come.


Athena: A happy New Year to you, (Captain).
You're up awfully early today. To hunt monsters, I presume?
No? You're off to visit the shrine? Ah yes, I had heard that it is customary to offer a prayer at the shrine for New Year's. But this early?
(Captain) explains that people from all over gather on this island for the occasion, and arriving at the shrine early would be a good way to avoid the crowds.
Athena: I see... That was something I had not considered... Is it all right if I accompany you today?
Today seems rather significant in my quest to learn more about the mortal way of life.
Haha, thank you. Let us go then.


Happy New Year, (Captain). A letter arrived for you just now.
Strangely, quite a number of letters have arrived today. Do you know why?
Hmm... I see. So there is a New Year's tradition of sending letters to friends and family members.
It's certainly a wonderful gesture that reaffirms relationships and strengthens bonds.
Perhaps I should endeavor to do the same. Allow me to write you a letter, (Captain)!
What? That's not quite the right idea?

Valentine's Day Cutscenes
# Link Text

Oh, (Captain). I'm glad I caught you. Could I have you for a moment?
I have heard that today is a momentous day where we give chocolates to the special ones in our lives.
So I have requested Medusa's assistance in making these chocolates.
They may not be much of a sight, but the flavor has Medusa's stamp of approval. So I'm sure they'll be to your liking!
Oh, yes... They're for you. Please take them.
Next year I'll work hard and improve my confectionary skills even further. Hehe, you'll just have to wait for it.


Happy Valentine's, (Captain). Yes, I have a present for you this year as well.
Although it is the same as last year's, I believe the chocolate to be much more refined, given all the training I've done since then.
Confectionery and warfare are alike in that in order to show your progress, you must show your mastery of the basics. Please, try one.
You find it delectable? Ah, it gladdens my heart to see that smile upon you.
But of course, there are certain things I am reflecting on. Medusa called me a bore for choosing the same gift as last year.
When she suggested that I'm too slow in picking up new mortal skills, I realized how careless I can be...
My next step will be to build upon what I've learned thus far and cultivate new skills. I will not be slow about it.
Allow me to show you the fruits of my labor when this day comes upon us next year, (Captain).

White Day Cutscenes
# Link Text

What is it, (Captain)? Do you perhaps require my assistance for something?
A White Day gift... in exchange for Valentine's Day? Ah, I see.
No, I did not mean to seem ungrateful or anything! I was just so surprised, and... at a loss for words.
A gift for a gift... I see. This could be another way of sharing a dialouge---but with sweets instead of words.
Thank you, (Captain). I humbly accept your kindness.
Such a heart of compassion is more than deserving of my aegis---not only you, but surely the entire crew as well.


(Captain), where are we headed to in the middle of the night?
You mentioned my White Day gift waiting ahead, but...
What are...
These insects dance with such a radiant glow...
Their fleeting shine in the twilight is so beautiful...
Haha... I never would have thought to come here had you not invited me. Thank you, (Captain)..
I won't forget this experience we've shared.

Trick or Treat Cutscenes
# Link Text

Stop that, all of you! Urgh... Why am I being attacked by children now?
(Captain), help me out, would you?
So they... aren't attacking me?
They're simply playing Halloween tricks on me... I see. So that is merely how one celebrates this holiday.
My apologies... I seem to have misunderstood. I didn't mean to put a damper on holiday festivities...
"Trick or treat," was it? What does it mean?
What! If I don't give them candy, they'll play tricks on me?
That can't be! Oh no...
If it has come to this, then it would be folly to continue taking their tricks!
We'll see just how far their tricks will work against I, the wielder of the aegis and the shield!


Ah, (Captain). I see you're quite enjoying Halloween this year as well.
Yes, I can tell just by looking at you.
I suppose I should give you a treat before you decide to play a trick on me.
Oh, and... Trick or treat, (Captain).
Haha. I've learned a lot from last year's Halloween.
You don't have any treats with you? What's that I see in your hand then...
Hm? You prefer a trick instead? But why?
Oh my... I can't think of any good tricks to play on you...
I was sure I'd be able to celebrate Halloween properly this year, but it appears I need to apply myself further.
Perhaps next year will be my chance to prove myself! I'll enlist the aid of the other crew members as well!
You can trust I'll employ every strategy and tactic within my approach to trick you into submission, (Captain)! On my aegis, I swear this!

Happy Holidays Cutscenes
# Link Text

Everyone seems to be in a festive mood today. Is there a special occasion of sorts happening?
A winter celebration, you say...
I have heard the rumors, but this is my first time seeing a town bustle like this in person.
It is indeed a wonderful sight to behold... I can’t seem to find a frown in sight.
A day where skydwellers celebrate in harmony, together with their loved ones...
If you wouldn’t mind, (Captain), could you teach me more about this holiday?
I wish to know every detail there is to know about such a wonderful day.
Surely the knowledge will prove useful in protecting smiles across the sky.


Welcome back, (Captain).
Given how chilly it is, I suggest you make your way over here.
This? Truth be told, I was making a holiday wreath.
When I heard that these can banish evil and bring good fortune, I knew I had to try assembling one myself.
I had wanted to complete the task before the holy eve, but things did not proceed so smoothly...
Nonetheless, feast your eyes on it! The shape I've envisioned for so long has finally taken form!
Haha... I am more than just a force on the battlefield. Chances are good that we will get to see my full-fledged wreath before night's end.
Will you join me as I put the finishing touches on it, (Captain)?
May we pray together for the eternal bliss of all in our crew...

Fate Episodes

Stamp56.png Spoiler Alert!
These tabs contain full Fate Episode cutscene scripts with major spoilers about the character. View these tabs at your own discretion.

Goddess of the Shield

The crew receives a request to protect a town from a recent increase in goblin attacks. There they meet a knight named Athena, who reveals herself to be the guardian primal beast of the aegis. She travels the skies in search of another primal beast, one who can turn all she sees into stone, and asks to join (Captain)'s crew on their journey in order to find her.

To combat a recent surge in goblin attacks, a certain town has enlisted the help of (Captain)'s crew.
Never to ignore those in need, the crew wastes no time making its way to the town.
Vyrn: Hey, uh, is this the guards' chamber? We're with the crew that was hired to protect the town...
???: You... Your crew has come to help? There aren't too many fighters here, so any assistance we can get is much appreciated.
Athena: My name is Athena. I am a wandering knight who came to this town upon hearing of their crisis.
Vyrn: So you must be the reason this town's still in pretty good shape after being attacked so many times.
Athena: Yes, well... I'm doing what I can. More importantly, I have knowledge about this town's defenses we can use.
Athena: It has been a long battle, but I have continued to carry the banner regardless, in order to inspire the people.
Vyrn: Whoa. Say, now that you mention it, the people in town were pretty animated... maybe a little too animated.
Lyria: I thought the same... The people in town seemed a bit off to me.
(Captain) had also noticed the strange state of the town upon arriving.
After Athena brings the crew into town, the sight unfolds before them once again.
Burly Townsperson: Ey! Somebody, anybody! I'm gonna need another sword here soon!
Burly Townsperson: Umph!
The man, eyes bloodshot, swings down his hammer with a loud clang.
A similar scene can be seen all around town.
Vyrn: Hey, uh... What's up with that guy?
Athena: This town has no need for swords to protect it. So I instructed the people to dispose of them.
Vyrn: Wait, but won't these people need something to defend themselves with? Why are you makin' them break all of their swords?
Athena: Those who are not accustomed to bloodshed will not find it so easy to wield a blade against a goblin—they may be our enemies, but they are still living, breathing creatures.
Athena: Instead we will be employing the use of slingers, archers, and gunners for our main lines of defense.
Townsperson 2: Come on, keep 'em comin'! Bring me all yer pots and plates—everything y'all can muster to carry! I'll break 'em down fer ya here!
Lyria: What is he doing?
Athena: This is also a part of preparing for the town's defense.
(Captain) isn't quite sure what to make of the unorthodox tactics Athena has chosen to use.
Owl: ...
A large owl lands gracefully on Athena's shoulder.
Athena: Ah, Glafkos. There you are.
Glafkos: ...
As if to whisper something, the owl brings its beak to Athena's ear.
Athena: The goblins are on the move... Despite their failed attempts, it appears they're planning a last-ditch effort to invade.
Vyrn: No way! What're we standin' around here for, then? We gotta go stop 'em!
Athena: Not so fast. We must remain in town and continue preparing the defenses. Judging by the enemy's equipment, they're likely to attack after nightfall.
Just as Athena foretold, there are no signs of a goblin attack during the day.
A tense atmosphere grips the town as daylight gives way to the night.
Athena: ...
Vyrn & Lyria: ...
Vyrn: I'll bet those goblins already got the town surrounded... Is it really okay for us to just wait here like this?
Athena: Calm your fears. This city is now a nearly impenetrable fortress blanketed by the shadow of night. Breaking through our defenses will not be an easy task for them.
Lyria: We've met with all kinds of troops and battalions on our journey, but I don't think we've seen anything quite like this.
Athena: I believe in the power of the shield—the aegis. I wish to avoid bloodshed whenever possible.
Athena: I... I must. Or else...
Athena's expression darkens for a moment, just before Glafkos suddenly lets out a hoot from above.
Athena: Here they come.
Goblin: ...
Goblin: Gahaha! We're goin' in now, y'all!
Goblin: Hyaaaugh!
Athena: It's time, (Captain). Their leader should be making an appearance soon.
Vyrn: Yeah, time to... Wait, why're we going in the opposite direction, right as the goblins attack? What about the others?
Athena: Those on the front line should be able to handle it for now.
In spite of the crew's growing concern, Athena coolly begins walking away from the battle.
Goblin: Kill 'em all! Kill 'em all!
With bloodlust in their eyes, the goblins make a dash for the town's outer wall.
Goblin: Ungh!
However, they struggle to find their footing as the mud beneath them proves difficult to traverse.
Goblin: Yeeeowch! I just stepped on something!
Townsperson: Now! Slingshots out!
Goblin: Ngh... Eeeyargh!
Athena: The goblins planned their assault under the cover of nightfall. So we've gathered water from a nearby river to mudden the surrounding land.
Athena: On top of that, we've planted traps in the mud using broken cutlery and tableware. They won't be able to make it safely without a solid pair of boots.
Vyrn: So that's what those guys were doing earlier today... They were makin' some pretty gnarly shapes too.
Athena: Nothing sharp enough to cause a fatal wound, however. We've made sure of that.
Athena: In the midst of their confusion, our slingers will launch rocks their way—enough to make even the most stubborn ones want to run.
Taking extra care to avoid stepping on any traps, (Captain) heads for the outskirts of town.
Athena: Show them your bravery, warriors! Repel the enemy and obstruct their treachery!
Townspeople: Hoorah!
Confident in the morale of the townspeople, Athena begins to approach the goblin leader.
Goblin Leader: Grrr...
Athena: Do you see now, goblin? This town has been made an impenetrable fortress.
Athena: Attempt to invade it, and it shall bare its fangs upon you. If you value your safety, you would do well to leave.
Athena: We fight in the name of defense—therefore, we do not wish to take any of your lives. If you stand down now, we promise not to pursue you.
Athena: So please... Cease your plundering and recall your forces.
Goblin Leader: Grrngh... I see...
Perhaps feeling overwhelmed by the town's defenses, the goblin takes a few steps back in retreat.
Goblin Leader: You no... give chase?
Athena: That's right.
Goblin Leader: Okay then...
Goblin Leader: Fiiire!
Athena: ...!
Lyria: Athena!
Upon the goblin's command, a torrent of arrows suddenly pierces the skies from above.
Vyrn: (Captain), Shield Lady! Watch out!
Without a moment of hesitation, (Captain) prepares to deflect any arrows from the oncoming wave.
However, a wall of flames, seemingly conjured from thin air, incinerates the onslaught of arrows to a cloud of embers, protecting the crew from harm's way.
Goblin Leader: Eeep!
Athena: If you are unwilling to open a peaceful dialogue with me, I suppose I cannot show you any further mercy. Truly a pity.
Lyria: Wait... This energy!
Athena: I am Athena, the goddess of the shield—the aegis of this steel fortress.
The air surrounding Athena begins to violently erupt with a familiar aura.
Lyria: Athena... You're a primal beast!
Vyrn: No way!
Athena pays the crew no attention, her eyes locked on the band of goblins before her.
Athena: You have shown your power. Now I shall show you the power of the aegis and flames.
Athena: For I am the goddess of the shield—adversaries of the peace will be stricken with great justice.
Goblin Leader: Eyaaaugh!
Destructive flames make quick work of both the goblins and surrounding shrubbery, reducing all to ash.
Athena: ...
Vyrn: What... What the heck just happened...
Lyria: Athena... You're a primal beast, aren't you?
Athena: Yes... I am the guardian primal beast of the aegis. Therefore, I cannot stand idly while innocent lives are under attack.
Vyrn: That makes sense, but why were you hiding your true power this whole time?
Athena: People fear what they cannot comprehend. My power is truly a fearsome one. Fear can lead to hate, paving the way to violence once more.
Athena: And I truly did not wish to take their lives if it could have been avoided...
Athena: But even as the wielder of the aegis and the shield, I cannot show mercy to those without compassion—those who cannot be reasoned with.
Athena: Speaking of which, are you not afraid of me? Now that I think about it, you also recognized I was a primal beast.
Vyrn: Oh, Lyria? She's got a mysterious power that lets her channel the power of primal beasts, and feel their presence.
Lyria: We've also been collecting pieces of the Sky Map from primal beasts on our journey, so I've grown used to the feeling.
Athena: I see... So you are on a journey in search of primal beasts.
Athena: ...
Athena is pensive for a moment after hearing the crew's explanation.
Athena: Would you happen to have room for another member on your crew?
Vyrn: Whoa, what's this all of a sudden?
Athena: I have also been on a journey in search of a primal beast—one that has the terrifying power to turn anyone who beholds her gaze into stone.
Lyria: She can turn people into stone?
Vyrn: Oof, that definitely sounds like a primal beast you'd wanna avoid.
Athena: Fortunately, with my shield I can protect skydwellers from such a terrible fate.
Athena: However, what makes her truly fearsome is her disregard for morals and her unrestrained will. She chooses her victims on a whim, merely for her own entertainment.
Athena: I have been in search of her for decades now. As the wielder of the aegis and the shield, I cannot allow her to continue doing as she pleases.
Athena: Since you are on a journey in search of primal beasts, I am sure you will encounter her someday. At least allow me to accompany you until then.
  1. We'd be glad to have you.
  2. You're kinda scary.

Choose: We'd be glad to have you.
Athena: ...!
I am thankful.
Vyrn: She must be one tough cookie if even you've got trouble with her—one who could give us a run for our rupies if she wanted to...
Athena: Do not fret. As long as I am with you, this shield shall protect you all from harm's way.
With a reassured smile, Athena offers (Captain) a handshake.

Choose: You're kinda scary.
(Captain) feels somewhat uneasy, having seen the gruesome fate the goblins met after crossing Athena.
Athena: I see... You are an honest one. It is not surprising that one would be afraid after witnessing my power.
Athena: I am Athena, guardian primal beast of the aegis. So yes, it is true that I cannot show any mercy to those who disrupt order and peace—even if that may turn out to be you one day.
Athena: However, it is clear that you only fight in the name of good. I don't believe you or your crew to be involved in plundering or anything of the sort.
Athena: Therefore, there is no need for you to fear my power.
(Captain) considers her powers, which would be a more than worthwhile addition to the crew moving forward.
Overlooking Athena's rigid sense of morals, (Captain) and the crew agree to let her join as long as she brings no harm their way.
Athena: Thank you, (Captain).
Continue 1
After everything has settled in town, Athena joins (Captain) and the others back on the airship.
Athena: So this is your fortress—the Grandcypher.
Athena: As long as I am on this ship, on this crew, I shall protect you from harm's way. You have my word—and my shield.
Athena, guardian primal beast of the aegis, joins (Captain) and the crew on their journey.
Her fated encounter with the primal beast she has been seeking may just be on the horizon.

Fated Reunion

(Captain)'s crew arrives at a town upon hearing rumors of its citizens being turned into stone, suspecting the primal beast that Athena has been searching for to be involved. After saving a knight whose armor was turned into stone, they learn that the culprit was a girl with a giant serpent. Lyria uses her powers to track down the primal beast into the forest.

Rumors of certain incidents have brought (Captain) and the crew to a new town.
The incidents may be connected to the primal beast that Athena has been searching for, and so they have come to confirm the rumors for themselves.
Vyrn: What... What the heck happened here?
Upon taking a closer look around town, (Captain) and the crew find the streets lined with what appear to be statues of knights.
Lyria: I can feel a primal beast's power still lingering here... That's what must've turned these knights into stone.
Athena: Dreadful... Those poor souls.
Placing her hand on a statue, Athena lets out a remorseful sigh.
Knight: Wh-who's there!
The Three: ...!


Vyrn: D-did that statue just s-speak?
Knight: My apologies! Didn't mean to scare you like that, ma'am. Just my armor was turned to stone, see. My body's still fine, I just can't get out of this armor!
Athena: She's really done it this time... Hold still—we'll free you soon enough.
The crew breaks the knights' suits of armor, freeing them from their stone prisons.
Knight: I can't thank you enough. This all happened when a girl suddenly showed up in town with a giant snake.
Athena: It must be her—only she is capable of causing such chaos.
Athena: There's no doubt in my mind after seeing the state of this town.
Athena: My greatest fears have finally been realized. I started my journey with your crew to prevent such a tragedy, but alas.
Lyria: I can still feel the primal beast nearby. I think we might be able to catch up if we start following her now.
Athena: You're right. This is no time to lament the past—she still must be stopped.
Their spirits filled with determination, (Captain) and the others follow Lyria into the woods.
Vyrn: So the primal beast headed off somewhere this way, right?
Lyria: Yes. I can feel its presence growing stronger.
Athena: Then let's find her and put a stop to this as soon as we can!
Vyrn: That's the plan—but watch out! I heard this area's chock-full of monsters!

Fated Reunion: Scene 2

The crew follows the trail into the forest and soon encounters Medusa, the primal beast Athena has been searching for. Athena attempts to reproach Medusa's actions, as she has done time and again since their first encounter many years ago, but Medusa refuses to listen. Unable to show mercy as the guardian primal beast of the aegis, Athena points her spear at Medusa.

Athena: Seeing everything here reminds me of when I first encountered her.
Athena: That was several decades ago... I've tried to reason with her many a time since.
Vyrn: Decades? Now that's what I call tenacity.
Athena: I am the guardian primal beast of the aegis. Therefore, I cannot rest while the flames of battle are ablaze.
Athena: Unless we do something about her now, a terrible fate surely awaits another town just like this one.
Athena: I must be the one to stop her.
Lyria: You may get your chance... I can feel it. A primal beast is drawing really close!
Athena: Get behind me, everyone. Only my shield is capable of protecting you from her power.
???: Sigh... Well, this island turned out to be a total bust too, huh?
???: ...
???: If you're gonna fight me at all, then come at me like you mean it!
???: Every time things start to get a little fun, everyone scatters as soon as I start turning stuff to stone. What's the big deal?
???: ...
???: What now, Medusiana?
???: I'm not upset or anything... It's not my fault those stupid townspeople blew everything out of proportion.
Athena: ...
???: It's you!
Athena: Long time no see.
Lyria: Wait... Is she the primal beast you've been looking for?
Any version of Medusa (Promo) is a crew member

Vyrn: Wait, you've been looking for Medusa this whole time?
No version of Medusa (Promo) in crew

Vyrn: This little girl here?
Athena: Medusa! It appears you are still up to no good, aren't you!
Medusa: Pfft, what's your problem! Did you come all the way out here to sound off to me?
Athena: No, please don't take this the wrong way. I would like to end this encounter peacefully.
Medusa: Geez... You're a real pest, you know! Just how many decades do you plan on chasing me for?
Athena: I am the guardian primal beast of the aegis. There's no way I could stand by idly while you wreaked havoc across the skies.
Athena: Why do you continue to be a threat to these skydwellers? Why do you continue petrifying them with your gaze!
Medusa: Wha... I haven't done anything that bad!
Medusa: I was just trying to have some fun, and those idiots called their troops on me anyways! So this was just payback!
Athena: Your very power threatens the skies, and this is why the skydwellers fear you.
Medusa: Shut up about that already! Why is it that every time I see your face, you're harping on about the same dumb thing!
Athena: As a being who can put a stop to your power, I am merely doing what I must.
Medusa: Hah. Medusiana and I really have you scared stiff, huh?
Athena: I know I can stop you. In fact, I've already done it before. And I can do it again.
Medusa: Y-you think you've seen everything we can do when we actually try? Grr... Just stop bullying us already!
Athena: I wasn't bullying you!
Medusa: We'll show you! Come, Medusiana!
Athena: Aigis!
A burst of light flashes from the great serpent's eyes, but is ultimately deflected by Athena's shield.
Athena: ...
Medusa: ...
Athena: It looks like sharing a dialogue with you is impossible this time as well.
Medusa: Humph. You think I'm just gonna stand here and take your insults?
Athena: Very well. You have shown your power. Now I shall show you the power of the flames.
Vyrn: Yikes! Athena looks pretty mad!
Vyrn: H-hey, both of you! An all-out battle between two primal beasts could put this whole island in peril!
Athena: I, Athena, the guardian primal beast of the aegis, cannot show mercy to those who cannot be reasoned with!
Medusa: Humph! We'll see about that—Medusiana! Heh, we'll fight you off again just like we do every time!
Vyrn: This doesn't look good, (Captain)! Let's get outta here!
Athena & Medusa: Hraaaugh!

Fated Reunion: Scene 3

Upon absorbing some of Athena's power, Lyria is able to quell the battle unfolding between the two primal beasts. Athena is finally able to speak openly to Medusa, who reciprocates her concerns as another primal beast. The two quickly take to each other, each having found a new companion for eternity.

Medusa: Come on! That can't be everything you've got!
Athena: I do not wish to fight you! Yet you persist!
Medusa: Yeah, right! How can you even say that after chasing me around the skies for seventy-nine years with the same prattle every time!
Athena: That's because you won't listen to me!
The sheer force of the battle erupting between two primal beasts starts to wreak havoc on the immediate surroundings.
Trees and shrubbery are reduced to ash as the flames of battle begin to rampage wildly.
Vyrn: What do we do, (Captain)! At this rate the whole island's gonna get destroyed!
Medusa: Medusiana! Come on, we're still raring to go!
Athena: Ngh...
Lyria: Athena...
Lyria begins to notice something upon seeing the pain in Athena's eyes.
Lyria: Athena... She looks really distressed.
Vyrn: That might be on the account of fighting toe to toe with a primal beast...
Lyria: No, it's not only that. Don't you think she looks a little... sad?
Taking a moment to gather her resolve, Lyria looks up at (Captain).
Lyria: (Captain)... Can you help me try something? I don't think it'll be easy, but we have to stop Athena from fighting.
Lyria turns to face Athena, her eyes aglow with determination.
Athena: Flames!
Medusa: Eeyah! Medusiana, look out!
Lyria: I know what Athena meant now when she said she didn't wish to fight.
Lyria focuses her power to interfere with Athena, no matter the cost.
Lyria: (Athena, please stop!)
Lyria struggles to hold on, barely able to control Athena's unruly power.
Athena: ...!
Athena's flames die down, finally giving way to tranquility.
Athena: ...
Medusa: ...
Athena: We... we've stopped fighting.
Medusa: What? Is that all?
Athena: ...
Athena: Ngh... Oh, thank goodness...
Medusa: Hey... What's the big idea? Aren't you gonna try to get the job done like you always do?
Lyria: Athena... While you were fighting, I absorbed a little bit of your power.
Lyria: You said it yourself. As the wielder of the shield, you cannot show mercy.
Athena: That's right.
Lyria: You weren't just saying that, I realized... As a primal beast, you actually can't stop fighting until the battle has settled.
Lyria: While you were fighting, I could feel your anguish coming from within.
Athena: ...
Medusa: Then why do you keep trying to follow me if this is what happens to you every time?
Athena: I was hoping to share a longer dialogue with you. After all... this is the longest I've actually ever known someone.
Medusa: ...
Athena: Whether in times of peace or war, skydwellers eventually meet their end after a few decades.
Athena: In my never-ending pursuit of you, I often imagined us sharing a conversation peacefully, as two primal beasts enjoying each other's company.
Athena: I have my duty to fight and maintain order. But I could never give up on the hope that one day, maybe we could...
Medusa: So basically... You were just looking to kill some time?
Athena: I suppose I was.
Medusa: ...
Medusa: Yeah, well... That's fine, I guess.
Athena: Hehe... Sniff...
Medusa: Sigh.
Medusa: Well, if that's what this was about... I guess I can stop messing with skydwellers for a while. If that's what you want, I mean.
Athena: Huh?
Medusa: D-don't get the wrong idea! I just don't wanna have to deal with your crying every time I do something!
Medusa: More importantly! I'm giving up one of my favorite pastimes here for you, so you'd better provide me with some quality entertainment!
Athena: Hm...
Medusa: Well? Got anything good?
Athena: Yes, well then... How about devising some battlefield strategies?
Medusa: No way.
Athena: Oh, hmm... Maybe coming up with traps to capture the enemy together?
Medusa: Is this all you can come up with? How about something that's fun?
Athena: As the wielder of the shield and the aegis, I must admit I don't often think about... other things.
Medusa: Despite meddling with their business all the time, you haven't really learned anything from the skydwellers, have you?
Medusa: That's okay. I'll just teach you how to have a good time, so you'd better get ready to learn!
Medusa: Heh. I mean, since you're always fighting to protect ones in trouble, I bet you don't have much of an idea what a regular peaceful town looks like, do you?
Athena: Now that you mention it...
Medusa: They celebrate the silliest things, like making chocolates for each other on Valentine's Day, and all kinds of other stuff—Skydwellers never get boring to watch!
Athena: Is that so...
Medusa: Yep! How about we start off by watching the people on this island?
Athena: All right, I'll do my best.
The two primal beasts continue making lighthearted conversation as if the nearly catastrophic battle between them had never occurred.
Vyrn: Uh, well... I guess that settles that then.
Lyria: It looks like Athena and Medusa are friends now, aren't they?
Athena: Words cannot express my gratitude to your crew, (Captain). Thanks to you, I have fulfilled my wish at long last.
Medusa: You'd better not bore me, you hear! I mean it!
Athena: I promise. But before that, um...
Athena: Medusa. I want you to promise me that you will no longer bring harm to the skydwellers of this island.
Medusa: Huh?
Athena: We can start by apologizing to the people in town. And with an earnest, heartfelt apology.
Medusa: Whaaat?
Athena: The path to conflict is forged from fear. So it is only right that we prevent the flames of war from rising once more.
Medusa: No way! Why do I have to do something so lame for them?
Athena: Did you not wish to initiate a proper dialogue with them?
Medusa: Ngh... Fine, fine! I'll do it!
Athena: Hehe. Allow me to accompany you as well.
Despite her sheepish demeanor, Medusa makes her way to town to apologize together with Athena.
Medusa and Athena are seen beaming, each having made a new companion to spend eternity with.
