Mind If I Join You?
Beatrix has a bad habit of always acting alone, although she always manages to finish her missions. Zeta and Vaseraga attempt to convince her to work with others. She responds to their concerns by joining (Captain)'s crew.
Beatrix belongs to the Society, which hunts primal beasts. She recently journeyed to a land of extreme cold in search of glory…
But she was captured by enemies, and all contact with her has been lost since.
With the help of Zeta and Vaseraga, who also belong to the Society, the crew heads out to rescue Beatrix.
They manage to free her, win the ensuing battle, and return her to the Grandcypher. But no toasts are raised…
Zeta: I'm getting sick of you always rushing headlong into danger by yourself.
Beatrix: Look, I said I'm sorry…
Although Beatrix is still recovering from her injuries, Zeta finds ample time to lecture her.
Vyrn: Hey, why don't you leave it there, Red? Blue already said she's sorry, and—
Zeta: Oh, she's not sorry at all! It takes more than this to make her rethink her bad decisions!
Zeta: This girl just does whatever she feels like—and it gets hers into trouble!
Zeta: Getting captured? That's like a normal Tuesday for her!
Lyria: What? Really?
Vaseraga: Yeah, but even though she's always digging herself into pretty deep holes, somehow she manages to finish her missions.
Vyrn: Wow! That's pretty impressive!
Beatrix: Ha! You see?
Lyria: But I still don't think it's good for you to keep getting captured…
Beatrix: Who cares as long as I can escape? I'm a pro at slipping out of ropes and breaking locks and stuff.
Beatrix proudly whips out a rope.
Beatrix: I'll show you what I mean. Tie me up as tight as you want. I'll get out of it easily.
Choose: Tie the rope loosely.
- Tie the rope loosely.
- Tie her up as tight as you can.
Beatrix: Huh? Did you even try? This is too easy…
Vyrn: Wow! That's crazy! It's already loose! How'd you do that?
Beatrix: Heh-heh… and now…
After a bit of squirming , Beatrix escapes the rope .Choose: Tie her up as tight as you can.
Beatrix: ((Captain), you really didn't hold back, did you? This is ridiculously tight…)
Beatrix: Oof… This is… a toughie all right…
Beatrix: But if I… do this…
After a bit of squirming, Beatrix escapes the rope.
Beatrix: Hehe… What do you think of that!
Vyrn: W-wow… amazing! Wow… Amazing! But it did look kind of painful…
Beatrix: No, heh, not at all! It was easy—way too easy!Continue 1
Looking exasperated, Zeta raps Beatrix on the head.
Beatrix: You don't have to hit me!
Zeta: …Listen, Bea. No matter how well you can wiggle out of ropes, there's no guarantee it'll always go that well.
Beatrix: That's not true! It always goes well! Perfectly!
Zeta: What's perfect about it? You were crying like a baby when I retrieved you last time.
Beatrix: No I wasn't! There was… um… something in my eye…
Beatrix: And if I'd had little more time, I would have got out of it by myself…
Zeta: Liar! Stop acting so conceited! There's no way you would have made it by yourself! Are you really that stupid?
Beatrix: Wha! What did you just call me?
Vaseraga: Cut it out, the both of you. Zeta, you've said too much.
Vaseraga: But Beatrix. I hope you understand why she's being so hard on you.
Beatrix: Ugh… Well…
Vaseraga: You're strong, and you've got an unbreakable will. But that's also your weakness.
Vaseraga: Your strength is what allows you to fight alone… It's what drives you to fight alone.
Vaseraga: But there's a limit to how much a lone wolf can do without their pack. Just as you found out on the last mission.
Vaseraga: When your back is pushed against the wall, look to your partners for cues and you'll know what to do.
Vaseraga: This conversation's getting too long. I'll leave you with one final thought: stop acting in haste.
Beatrix: …All right…
Beatrix: Maybe I am too reckless… And no matter how hard I go, it's not like I'll ever get back the things I've lost…
Beatrix: I'm sorry I worried you two…
Beatrix bows her head in apology.
A silence descends on the room. Beatrix, sensing the awkwardness in the atmosphere, raises her head.
Beatrix: By the way, Zeta and Vaseraga, what kind of relationship do you two have with (Captain)?
Vaseraga: (Captain) has fought alongside us before.
Zeta: We fought together against a primal beast a while back.
Beatrix: A primal beast? (Captain), could you tell me more?
(Captain) explains that the crew is defeating primal beasts to collect Sky Map pieces, all in hopes of one day reaching Estalucia, Island of the Astrals.
Beatrix: Estalucia? I see…
Beatrix: Hey, (Captain)! Take me with you on your journey! Let me take out the primal beasts!
With a loud sigh, Zeta smacks Beatrix's again.
Beatrix: Hey! Stop that already!
Zeta: Geez… When are you gonna learn?
Beatrix: I have! That's why I'm not going alone this time. I'm going to hunt primal beasts with (Captain)!
Beatrix: Then we'd all get our way, right?
Vaseraga: …That's not a bad idea. This unruly mess of a girl will be safer with (Captain) and the others than on her own.
Zeta: Hmm… Well, you have a point, but still…
Beatrix: Right? Hehe… It's settled, then! Let me in your crew!
Choose: How about no.
- How about no.
- Is that any way to ask a favor?
Beatrix: Wha? Why not?
Beatrix: With me at your side, we can take out loads of primal beasts? I'll be a great help!
Zeta: Maybe if you asked more politely? Hehehe… You can start by bowing your head.Choose: Is that any way to ask a favor?
Beatrix: What do you mean?
Zeta: Hehehe… Well, you certainly are asking a big favor. You want them to let you join the crew, right? You should ask more politely…
Beatrix: Ugh… So what do you want me to do?
Zeta: Hehe… Just use your manners, like bowing your head.Continue 2
Beatrix: Bow my head? Grrr…
Looking mortified, Beatrix bows her head before (Captain).
Beatrix: Let me be one of your companions… um… pretty please?
Vyrn: Hey, (Captain)… Maybe you should stop messing with her now…
Beatrix: Messing with me? (Captain)! You were playing with me?
Zeta: Haha! Nice one, (Captain)! Already bullying Beatrix… It's like we've all been working together for years!
Vaseraga: Leave it there or she might start crying.
Beatrix: No I won't! What's with you all? Stop making fun of me!
They all give a good-natured smile to the beet-red Beatrix.
Everyone is all smiles as the indomitable swordswoman Beatrix is welcomed into the crew.
But despite the cheerful moment, (Captain) will soon learn to cast a critical eye on her obsession with glory.
The crew is taking a break when Zeta and Beatrix ask to travel somewhere. Before they set out, Beatrix offers to cook everyone breakfast. Reactions are mixed to her overly sweet cooking, so Beatrix offers to fix normal food next.
Gentle rays of sunlight pierce the morning air.
No version of Zeta
The crew are resting aboard the Grandcypher when Zeta makes an unannounced appearance.
Zeta: It's been a while! How have you been, Bea?
Beatrix: Um… Fine… But you sure came out of nowhere…
Lyria: How did you know we'd be here?
Zeta: Hehe. That's a trade secret. The higher-ups would get angry at me if I told you.
Vyrn: Eep! R-really? What'd you come here for anyway, Red?
Zeta: I'm on vacation, so I thought I'd come kill some time with Bea.
Beatrix: Great. Now go back.
Lyria: Don't be like that. We were thinking of relaxing as well, so why don't we spend the day together?
Beatrix: Well… Fine, whatever…
Any version of Zeta
is a crew member
(Captain) decides to give the crew the day off so they can recuperate from weeks of adventuring.
(Captain) is loafing around with Vyrn and Lyria when Zeta and Beatrix come up to them.
Beatrix: Hey, (Captain). We're not searching for primal beasts today, right? So why don't we go somewhere?
Zeta: Yeah, we've got time off, so it'd be a shame to waste it doing nothing.
Lyria: You've got a point! Let's go somewhere, (Captain)!Continue 1
Zeta: Then it's settled! Where should we go?
Vyrn: Whoa, hold up. We haven't even had breakfast yet!
Lyria: Now you mention it, I am feeling pretty hungry…
Beatrix: I'll whip up something then. It'll be super tasty, so don't you worry.
Beatrix: Hehe… Just trust me.
Puffing out her chest in pride, the confident Beatrix heads to the galley.
Vyrn: Hey, Red. You seemed surprised just now. Is Blue's cooking really that bad?
Zeta: Not at all. She's actually a great cook.
Zeta: Hehe… Well, let's just say you'll understand my reaction after you've had a taste.
Beatrix: All right, they're done! My special sandwiches! Hehe… You'll love these!
Lyria: Thank you!
Wow! They're so tasty!
Vyrn: S-sure… But the flavor's crazy sweet…
Zeta: Hehe… Tastes like cake or something, right?
Vyrn: Yeah, it's totally like eating dessert! What are these?
Beatrix: Oh, you don't like them?
Vyrn: I wouldn't say that… It's just that I was sort of expecting to eat some normal food.
Zeta: I'll go make something simple, then.
Beatrix: Wait a sec! Hold on!
Beatrix: I'll make it, Zeta! Something normal, right? I'm on it!
Vyrn: No sweet stuff, okay?
Beatrix: I know! I can make regular food, too. No sweat! Do you have any requests?
Lyria: How about some fish? I haven't had any in a while!
Beatrix: G-t it. Fish it is! Let's head to the Sea of North Vast and catch something fresh!
Vyrn: North Vast? You mean there's a sea on that frozen lump of an island?
Beatrix: I caught a glimpse of it last time I was there. The fish were pretty small, but I bet they taste delicious when fried!
Beatrix: Now let's go! Just watch me! I'll catch some tasty fish and cook 'em for you!
Though Beatrix's boasting worries the crew, they set out for the Sea of North Vast anyway.
Unbeatable Cooking: Scene 2
Beatrix manages to make a delicious fish dish—but it's still sweet enough to be a dessert. For her next recipe, she promises to make something more savory and convinces the crew to head to Fertyl Island to procure sweetcap mushrooms.
After reaching the Sea of North Vast, Beatrix is able to catch a respectable amount of fish.
The crew returns to the airship with her haul.
Vyrn: Whoa, you caught some pretty big fish! I'm lookin' forward to this.
What's the matter, Blue?
Beatrix: Well… I was just thinking that they kind of stink…
Zeta: Don't tell me… Is this the first time you've done this? Do you know how to prepare them?
Beatrix: First time? Of course not! I'm perfectly used to this kind of thing. One tasty fish dish coming right up!
Lyria: Hehe… I can't wait!
Vyrn: That makes one of us…
Beatrix soon returns carrying plates of crisply fried fish.
Lyria: Wow! It looks so yummy!
Beatrix: Hehe. Told you so. It's going to be delicious. Now eat it up quick, before it gets cold!
(Captain) practically drools at the sight of the fried fish. After a bite, (Captain)'s eyes widen—the flavor is amazing.
Zeta: I'm shocked. Bea, this is great stuff.
Beatrix: Hehe. I know, right? Delicious, huh?
Vyrn: Yeah it's really good… The sugar works great; the sweetness really pleases the palette just like…
Vyrn: Just like cake! This tastes exactly like a dessert again! How did you manage that?
Beatrix: Wha? That's impossible!
The flustered Beatrix samples some of the food herself, growing speechless.
Beatrix: It's so sweet…
Zeta: Haha. Guess I'll go make something after all.
Beatrix: Wait! This is… um… the appetizer!
Zeta: You're serving a sweet dish as the starter course? So what were the sandwiches supposed to be?
Beatrix: They were… um…
Beatrix: Anyway! The next course will be super tasty! So what would you guys like this time?
Having happily consumed the tasty but sweet, Lyria smiles innocently.
Lyria: I'd like some kind of wild mountain vegetable. Like mushrooms or something…
Beatrix: Mushrooms? Oh, I've got it! The sweetcap!
Zeta: The sweetcap mushroom? Isn't that, like, a five star gourmet ingredient?
Beatrix: Yep, you've got it! Let's go pick one!
Lyria: Hehe, I can't wait!
Zeta: Can you really find a sweetcap this time of year?
Beatrix: Where there's a will, there's a way! I'll find an extra tasty one too! Come on, (Captain)!
Harboring more than a little doubt, the crew heads to the mountains of Fertyl Island in search of the sweetcap mushroom.
Unbeatable Cooking: Scene 3
While Beatrix is cooking the sweetcap mushrooms, Zeta explains Beatrix's obsession with being successful. Beatrix comes back with a prepared dish, which to no one's surprise is still too sweet. Her determination stronger than ever, she announces she'll make a salad next.
Miraculously, Beatrix succeeds in obtaining a sweetcap mushroom.
Zeta: I-I… I can't believe you actually found one…
Beatrix: Yeah… But geez, mushrooms sure are weird…
Vyrn: Huh? Blue, don't tell me… Is this your first time seeing a mushroom?
Zeta: You're kidding me! Can you really cook this, Bea? You sure you don't want me to do it?
Beatrix: Nah. I don't need your help, Zeta! I'll manage on my own… probably.
Vyrn: What? Probably?
Beatrix: I didn't say that! This'll be no problem! I'll go make it, so just shut up and wait!
Zeta: Sigh… She always was a sore loser…
Vyrn: Oh, you mean she's always acting tough 'cause she hates losing to you, Red?
Zeta: I don't think it's only me. She doesn't like losing to anyone.
Lyria: What do you mean?
Zeta: …Well, no one likes to admit their weaknesses.
Zeta: And that girl's obsessed with glory.
Vyrn: Now that you mention it, she does always seem strangely excited about hunting primals beasts and finding success.
Vyrn: We've always wondered why that is…
(Captain) nods at Vyrn's words.
Zeta: When Bea was young, everything was taken from her by enemies of the Society.
Zeta: That’s right. Everything. Her social status, her family… and pretty much anything else you can think of.
Lyria: That's awful…
Zeta: Bea was originally from a noble family. And after she survived her loss, she was teased for falling from nobility.
Zeta: But instead of resenting those who bullied her, she turned her anger on those who took everything from her and swore revenge.
Zeta: It was after that that she came to hate losing and started acting tough.
Zeta: To show those who snubbed her how wrong they were, she grew up strong and willful.
Vyrn: I see now… You sure know a lot about her, Red.
Zeta: Hehe… I've known Bea singe before we joined the Society, so you could say we're familiar.
Zeta: And yet, all by herself, she's still trying to…
Just as (Captain) starts to ask about the meaning behind Zeta's words, the door opens, and a fragrant aroma wafts in.
Beatrix: All done! Eat 'em while they're hot!
Beatrix offers the party dishes of sliced and roasted sweetcap mushroom.
Zeta: Oh, that's a nice smell! That's definitely sweetcap mushroom… I was worried, but seems like it turned out okay.
Lyria: Yay! Let's eat!
Vyrn: Whoa… This is…
Beatrix: Well? Is it tasty? Tell me!
Zeta: Bea, you really are a skilled cook. These are just great.
Zeta: With every bite I take, my mouth is filled with the deliciously mellow, sweet…
Zeta: Flavor of cake! Wait, is this a starter too? Just how many appetizers are you planning to serve to us?
Beatrix: Wha? There's just no way!
The flustered Beatrix tries a piece of the sliced sweetcap mushroom.
Beatrix: It's sweet… But how could this be?
Vyrn: That's what we wanna know.
Lyria: But it was really delicious! Even if it tasted and smelled like cake, I've never tasted anything like it!
Beatrix: Ugh… This is, you know… to ready your palates, so… so you'll get the full impact of the next dish I'm going to make!
Zeta: Haha… We know this was no appetizer. Do you still have the energy to make more?
Beatrix: Of course! Hey, Lyria! What do you feel like next?
Lyria: Um… Oh, I know! How about some regular vegetables… like in a salad?
Vyrn: Yeah! I'm up for that… Something plain, with no dressing!
Beatrix: Got it! All right, let's go pick some fresh vegetables!
Thus the crew sets off in the airship in search of fresh produce.
Unbeatable Cooking: Scene 4
Beatrix's salad ends up tasting like honest-to-goodness salad. On the other hand, her soup tastes as sweet as almost everything else she makes. Beatrix is upset by this, so Zeta gently offers to help her with her cooking.
After obtaining some fresh vegetables, Beatrix prepares the salad in the galley and then serves it to the crew.
Beatrix: Here's the salad! Hehe. Now dig in!
Vyrn: Hey, Red… You took a peek just now, right? Are we all clear?
Zeta: Yeah… I think we're safe. All Bea did was put the vegetables on the plates.
Beatrix: What are you two whispering about?
Vyrn: Nothing! Let's eat up!
With a stoic expression, (Captain) cautiously tastes one of the vegetables.
Vyrn: It… It tastes…
Lyria: These vegetables taste just like they're supposed to!
Zeta: It's true! This tastes like a proper salad! Bea, you've done it! Now this is a true starter!
Beatrix: Hehe. Of course it is. Nothing could be easier than making salad!
In spite of her confident words, Beatrix looks relieved.
Seeing her feel better, (Captain) cracks a smile.
Vyrn: Aaaah… that salad was really refreshing and delicious. Good goin', Blue!
Lyria: It was great! But now I'm craving something kind of warm…
Beatrix: I thought you'd say that! So I went ahead and made some soup! Hehe… See how considerate I am?
Lyria: Wow! Thanks so much!
Vyrn: This is normal soup, right?
Beatrix: Well of course! I just made it with the salad leftovers!
Vyrn: Okay… I guess there's nothing to fear then.
Thinking the same, (Captain) gives Beatrix's soup a taste.
Vyrn: Hmm… What a nice, mild flavor. And this sweet aroma… It's…
Vyrn: …Sweet! Seriously?
Vyrn: What's the big idea? I mean, you made the salad just fine!
Beatrix: Ugh… I… I wish I knew…
Zeta: Haha! No more! I just can't take it anymore! Hahahaha!
Zeta: Haha… How do you do it every single time? Why is everything you make so sweet?
Zeta: I guess this is another one of your appetizers, huh? So what was that salad? And just when is the main course coming? Haha!
Lyria: Hehe… It really is a little funny…
Beatrix: Ugh… Don't laugh… Why is this happening?
Zeta: Hehe… You never change, do you? You're still trying to fight your battles by yourself.
Beatrix: Where'd that come from all of a sudden?
Zeta: There's nothing sudden about it. This cooking is just one more example of something you should have let us help you with.
Zeta: And I could say the same about battles and everything else. You're taking on too much alone.
Zeta: Stop trying to act so strong. You're not alone, so why don't you work with everyone more?
Beatrix: Yeah… I guess you're right. I suppose I was being a little headstrong. Just a tiny bit.
Beatrix: My cooking today, battles, and everything else that lies ahead… I'm always trying to take all of it on by myself.
Beatrix: I'm sorry.
Vyrn: There's nothing to apologize for! Let's just work together from now on, okay?
Lyria: That's right! You're part of the crew! We should always help each other out!
(Captain) emphatically agrees with Vyrn and Lyria.
Beatrix: Thanks. In that case… let's all work together, guys.
Lyria: Sure! And please cook for us again, okay?
Beatrix: But, my cooking… It all tastes sweet. Remember?
Vyrn: Well, I admit don't really get that part, but it all tastes delicious! Maybe better than anything I've ever had!
Lyria: Yeah! It was all so tasty! I'd love to have some more sometime!
Beatrix: Hehe… Of course you would! So I guess I'll make—
As Beatrix starts to boast again, Zeta raps her on the head.
Beatrix: Ouch! What was that for?
Zeta: Don't get carried away. You were about to launch right back into your shenanigans…
Zeta: Look, I'll teach you how to make regular food. Come here.
As Zeta and Beatrix head for the galley, the rest of the crew follows behind, smiling supportively.
Altough she occasionally shows frustration, Beatrix earnestly studies the art of cooking under Zeta.
Under her tutor's watchful eye, she comes to learn a little humility.
But, as it turns out, after several hours of instruction not even Zeta's expertise can rid Beatrix's food of its trademark sweetness.
The crew accepts a mission to infiltrate a bandit hideout. Beatrix and Razia each scramble to be first to reach the hideout and prove their strength to the other, but they fall into one of the bandits' traps and end up bound together. The pair manage to escape unharmed thanks to Razia causing a diversion and Beatrix freeing herself from the rope. They finally recognize each other's ability, but soon begin arguing once again.
Beatrix: Argh! Why are you following me? You don't think I can handle this on my own?
Razia: Huh? What about you! Why are you running away? You think I'm just going to be a hindrance?
Beatrix and Razia dash through the narrow cave, bickering all the way.
The two are determined to prove their strength to each other.
It all started when (Captain) and company accepted a mission to locate a bandit hideout.
Beatrix: Heheh. I'm here to help this time, Razia! You're in good hands!
Razia: Right. That's most reassuring... But why are you so concerned about me?
Beatrix: Hm? You were careless and got yourself caught by bandits before, didn't you? I can't let you go alone!
Razia: But if that's the case, shouldn't you need my help too?
Beatrix: Huh? What do you mean?
Razia: I heard from (Captain) that the crew first met you when you'd been captured after failing to infiltrate an enemy base.
Beatrix: Urgh... I-I wasn't feeling well that day!
Razia: Heh... I can't let you go alone! I'll be the one to lend you a hand.
Beatrix: Hah! I don't need your help!
Beatrix: I'm used to missions like this. Just let me take the lead, and we'll be finished in a jiff!
Razia: I'm concerned you'll get too comfortable and let your guard down. You should stay behind me!
Beatrix: Don't worry! I'll be careful! Just leave it to me!
Vyrn: Hey, are those two gonna be okay?
Lyria: Hahaha... They're both really strong. I'm sure they'll be fine!
But the argument between Beatrix and Razia becomes increasingly heated.
Beatrix: Argh! If you're going to keep doubting my ability, I'll just have to show you what I can do!
Beatrix: Heheh. You just watch! I'll smash this hideout to pieces all by myself!
Razia: W-what? Where did that come from?
Beatrix: Heheh! I'll show 'em!
Razia: Argh! Wait!
Vyrn: H-hey! Calm down, you two!
The pair race through the cave, each attempting to be the first to find the bandit hideout and demonstrate their true strength.
Razia: Huff... Huff...
Beatrix: Heheh! What's wrong? You seem out of breath. I'm not even close to being tired!
Razia: Urgh... I'm carrying a lot more weight than you! My cannonlance is incredibly heavy, I'll have you know. I'm at a big disadvantage here!
Razia: Heh. In other words, don't you feel embarrassed that you aren't leaving me in the dust?
Beatrix: Heh. I've got nothing to be embarrassed about!
Beatrix: I had three extra helpings of rice for breakfast! That's gotta be at least as much extra weight as that thing you're carrying around!
Razia: Wha... There's no rice in all the skies that would be that heavy!
Beatrix: Heh. Then I guess I've just got a bigger heart than you, and it's weighing me down!
Razia: Huh? W-what was that for! Are you resorting to insults now?
A suspicious glowing string is stretched across their path.
But the pair are so absorbed in their quarrel that they fail to notice.
Beatrix and Razia are launched into the air, their screams echoing through the cave.
They then tumble to the ground, bound together.
Beatrix: What did I do to deserve this!
Razia: Urgh. What a clever trap...
Bandit: Heh... Nah, you two are just morons!
Beatrix: Wha! Hey, who are you calling a moron?
Razia: I am a proud knight! It'll take more than a trap like this to make me surrender!
They twist about trying to remove the rope, but the more they struggle, the more tangled the rope becomes.
Razia: Urgh... I can't... breathe!
Beatrix: Ngh... It hurts...
Razia: Argh! I can't believe I have suffered such disgrace at the hands of you second-rate scoundrels!
Razia: Ngh! Just kill me!
Beatrix: Hey, don't be stupid! You can't just give up like that!
Bandit: Tch. What's wrong with those two? They go and make everything worse all by themselves, and then they ask us to kill 'em? What's that about?
Beatrix: (Huh? They're all out of sorts because of what Razia said...)
Beatrix: (I get it! She's putting on an act to give us an opening!)
Beatrix: (All right! In that case...)
While the bandits are distracted, Beatrix makes to cut the rope with the Embrasque Sword.
Beatrix: Oh no!
She drops the sword due to the awkward position she's stuck in.
The sword slides down an incline, coming to a stop at the edge of a gaping hole in the ground.
Beatrix: Thank goodness... That was close!
Bandit: Hey, sword lady! Quit your wigglin'!
Beatrix: Tch... I guess it won't be easy getting out of this rope while those goons are watching...
Bandit: Heh. I wouldn't mind killin' you like you asked, but you might still have buddies lurkin' around!
Bandit: Let's see... Whaddya say we rough you up a bit, and we'll all have a nice chat!
The bandits creep closer. But just as all hope seems lost, Razia makes her move.
Razia: Take this!
Bandit: What the?
Razia fires a shot from her cannonlance.
However, the awkward position makes aiming difficult, and the bullet shoots off in the wrong direction, causing an explosion.
Razia: Urgh... I missed! And that was my only bullet!
Bandit: Are you crazy, lady? You tryin' to bring down the entire cave?
Beatrix: Nooo! My Embrasque!
Beatrix watches as the Embrasque Sword soars through the air and plummets into the hole.
Razia: Oh no! I-I'm so sorry...
Bandit: Hahaha! What a couple of screw-ups!
(The bandits are distracted... Now's my chance!)
Razia: Ngh... Prepare yourselves! I'll finish this with one more shot!
Bandit: Hey now, didn't you just say you're all outta bullets?
Razia: Oh, right... Curses!
Bandit: Hahaha! You really are a moron!
Razia: Urgh! I'm being mocked by bandits!
Beatrix: Heh! They've gotten a bit big for their boots, but that ends now!
Beatrix claps her newly freed hands together and turns to face the bandits.
Razia: Wha! Beatrix! What happened to the rope?
Beatrix: Heheh. I untied it ages ago! Get up, Razia! It's time to get our revenge! They're gonna pay for those insults!
Bandit: Damn it! All that talking was just to buy time?
Beatrix: Heheh. So you finally noticed. Who are the morons now?
Razia: Well... I wasn't really trying to buy time, but no matter...
Razia: You have my thanks! Now we can bring these bandits to justice!
Bandit: Tch. Think you're hot stuff, do you?
Bandit: Hah! A swordswoman without a sword and a cannon-wielding knight without bullets? You don't stand a chance against us!
The bandits ready their weapons.
Vyrn: H-hey, you two okay? We heard a loud explosion...
(Captain) and the crew catch up, turning the tables on the bandits.
Razia: (Captain)! Perfect timing!
Bandit: Tch. They brought their friends! We'll just have to take 'em all out at once!
Beatrix: Bring it on! I'm ready when you are, flunkies!
Razia: I'll make you feel the same disgrace I suffered at your hands!
(Captain) and company make quick work of the bandits.
Vyrn: Man, don't just run off like that. I'm sure glad you two are okay though.
Lyria: Yeah! We already know you two are strong. You don't need to prove it to anyone!
Beatrix: Ngh... S-sorry about that.
Razia: I got a bit carried away...
Vyrn: Hey, Beatrix, where'd your sword go?
Razia: My cannon fire caused it to fall into that hole...
Vyrn: Um... Isn't that gonna be a problem? Doesn't that thing belong to the Society?
Beatrix: Augh... I-if my drill sergeant finds out, she'll kill me! We've gotta get it back!
Beatrix peers into the hole, hoping to spot the Embrasque Sword.
Beatrix: Sigh... It's too dark to see anything...
Razia: Oh? Let me take a look...
Razia peeks into the hole from behind Beatrix.
Vyrn: H-hey, that rock wall's startin' to collapse!
Razia: Huh? Whoa!
Beatrix: You've gotta be kidding me!
Vyrn: Whoa! I tried to tell 'em! Let's get 'em outta there, (Captain)!
(Captain) and the crew hastily descend into the hole to rescue Beatrix and Razia, who had fallen inside.
After a while, (Captain) and company manage to climb their way up from the depths of the pit.
Vyrn: Sheesh. I feel like all we've been doing is saving those two...
Lyria: Hahaha... It's been quite an adventure.
Beatrix: But I'm so glad we found the Embrasque Sword... Thanks for the help!
Razia: Er... I feel I should apologize. It was all my fault...
Beatrix: Haha! What are you talking about? It was my fault too. Besides, you really saved our necks back there!
Beatrix: I especially liked the part when you told those thugs to kill you! Man, that was some great acting!
Razia: Hm? A-acting? What do you mean?
Beatrix: Hahaha. There's no need to be modest! Sorry Razia, I really underestimated you.
Razia: I appreciate your kind words, but... Well...
Razia: You see... Oh, never mind.
Razia: Er... The way you freed yourself from that rope was most impressive. I didn't even notice you untying it.
Beatrix: Heheh! Well, I have a lot of experience escaping from ropes!
Vyrn: Huh? Doesn't that just mean you've been caught a bunch?
Beatrix: Oh, come on! Don't sweat the details!
Beatrix: But I guess if it hadn't been for my brilliant escape from that rope, we would've been in real trouble!
Razia: Now just a minute! If it hadn't been for that shot I fired, they would have rounded us all up!
Beatrix: Hmm. That was pretty helpful... but I would've been able to make an opening on my own!
Razia: W-what was that?
Lyria: Oh no... There they go again!
Vyrn: Well, I guess they just fight like that 'cause they're such good friends... We can prolly just let 'em be.
Beatrix and Razia start bickering once again. (Captain) and company can do nothing but watch, smiling wryly.
The voices from the lively argument echo through the narrow cave.
