Hobbies Admiring herself, conducting research
Likes Herself, mirrors
Dislikes Thoughtlessness
The creator of alchemy in the skydoms, Cagliostro sought to achieve immortality, and in turn, discovered a way to swap out her body at regular intervals. An extreme narcissist capable of creating her ideal body at will, she created her current self in the pursuit of idealized cuteness. However, her attempts at matching it with an equally cute voice often leave something to be desired. Cagliostro is supremely confident, which causes her to view others as incompetent buffoons. Forever greedy in the ever-changing world around her, Cagliostro pursues alchemic research with single-minded stoicism.

Background and Personality[edit]

Stamp119.png This section contains spoilers. Continue reading at your own discretion.

Some time prior to the war between the Sky Dwellers and the Astrals, Cagliostro lived as a sickly boy close to death. With the aid of his younger sister, he pursued methods to avoid his early demise regardless of how the people in village thought. After many failures, Cagliostro was able to create a new female body and transferred his soul into it. That wasn’t the end. She refined the technique and kept at her research, coining the term “Alchemy,” thus becoming the founder of the practice. Word spread as Cagliostro made her art grow, garnering awe and even disciples wishing to learn from her.

Cagliostro taught her younger sister alchemy and she continued to research with her aid. The younger sister, as talented as she was with destruction alchemy, had no interest in the immortality Cagliostro had created for herself. Once she settled down with a husband and children, Cagliostro’s sister retired from alchemy. In return for her help and out of affection for her little sister, Cagliostro bought a secluded island for her to live out the rest of her days in peace. Eventually, she was put to rest there.

One day, Cagliostro was approached by the Astrals and was promised great power in exchange for following their commands. It is unclear whether this happened before her sister’s death but Cagliostro declined and soundly trounced the Astrals when they tried to force the matter. That was not the last time Cagliostro had come to odds with others due to her infamy.

The Alchemists of Helmuth, using the image of Cagliostro’s sister as their symbol, would corner Cagliostro. They found that Cagliostro had become too wild in her actions, sullying the name of her own practice. This guild utilized their founder’s main weakness, destruction alchemy. Before she was sealed away for countless years, Cagliostro vowed to return and make heads roll.


End of spoilers.


Personality[edit]

Though her body may be tiny, Cagliostro sports an incredibly huge ego. The primary source of praise for her intellect, beauty, and power is herself. Many times, the millennia old alchemist points out the perfectness of herself to the Main Character and their crew in an almost sickly sweet manner often appealing to the Captain.

To match with the appearance of her youthful artificial body, Cagliostro raises the tone of her voice and acts the part of an adorable little girl. She even adds to it with items such as dolls or stuffed animals, aiming to fluster and beguile her audience. Cagliostro’s narcissism often shines through, jumping to the conclusion that a stranger approached her to ask her to be their poster girl in one instance.

The true Cagliostro is quick to insult, very forceful, and enjoys using violence to solve problems, to punish, or just uses it as an outlet for her easily lit temper. When she first meets the Main Character’s crew, her innocent façade quickly faded and Cagliostro attempted to feed the crew to her pet, Ouroboros, for no dire reason. What stopped Cagliostro was seeing convenience in joining the crew for protection and to have a means of travel. Outside of the crew, Cagliostro tends to talk down to the general populace and is annoyed by their low intellect.

Despite Cagliostro’s often depraved behavior and immoral means of feeding her ever present hunger for knowledge, there is a caring and fiercely loyal side to her. After traveling with the crew for some time, Cagliostro is willing to throw herself into harm’s way when Lyria is in danger. When it comes to the Main Character, Cagliostro also shields them from danger and threatens others with death should they betray them. Those being only a couple examples of that behavior, Cagliostro either doesn’t mention anything regarding it or plays it off by saying that she had an ulterior motive. It can be unclear whether this is the truth but as time goes on, Cagliostro herself admits that she has grown soft and aids the crew when she doesn’t stand to gain anything. Along those lines Cagliostro holds deep affection for her family. She became enraged when the Helmuth guild created lies about her sister, and is a strict but patient mentor to her niece, Clarisse.

In rare instances, Cagliostro can become flustered with those she is close to. The Main Character can get options that allow them to carry Cagliostro or pat her head, resulting in the alchemist becoming embarrassed. Clarisse can achieve at making her blush as well by calling Cagliostro her mentor. She tries to cover with the fake adorable girl act or with cold words, though it’s obvious that Cagliostro was affected.

Happy Birthday Cutscenes

1

Happy birthday, (Captain)!
Congratulations, you're another year older and wiser! Hm? My birthday?
Heehee, I'm eternally youthful, don't you know? I never age!
(Birthdays... I don't feel like working out how many of mine have passed...)
(Enjoy yourself while you're young, (Captain). Your birthday is a time to think about where your life is now and where it's going.)

2

I guess this makes it the second time I'm celebrating your birthday.
It's really strange now that I think about it. My time spent with you has been rather... pleasant.
So you'd best make sure you live a really long life! No matter how many decades or even centuries pass by, you can bet I'll always be there to celebrate your birthday. My days spent buried in study weren't so bad, but I'd much rather be with you now.

3

(Captain), happy birthday!
I made cake just for you, (Captain).
Hey, what's with that look in your eyes?
This is the third time I'm celebrating your birthday after all.
Figured I'd try my own thing this time.
You're getting cake from the absolute cutest girl in the skies! Go on—tell me how happy you are!
Let's make this an annual tradition from now on.
Meaning you'd better be darn sure that you're in fantastic health when this day rolls around next year, (Captain).

4

Happy birthday, (Captain)!
I've baked you another cake, you lucky duck you!
Ouch... I burned my fingers a little doing it...
It's not such a bad feeling though. It'd been a while since I made anything without resorting to alchemy.
My body is now and always shall be perfect.
Which means I will remain, forever, the world's cutest girl.
Maybe that's why I'm actually sort of pleased with these burns I got while selflessly thinking of you.
A genius like me needs a catalyst like you to keep constantly evolving.
So you'd better keep kicking, (Captain). Or the skies' greatest cutie will never forgive you.

Happy New Year!
I heard it's common to wear a really cute and strange outfit today. I'd love to wear one too...

2

Hey, (Captain)! Let's go to a shrine for New Year's!
Huh? What's with that surprised look on your face?
You're being asked out by the cutest girl in the universe, so show some excitement!
Visiting a shrine at the start of the year is a time-honored tradition.
Grumble another word, and I'll wrap you up with Ouroboros... and then drag you there whether you like it or not. Teehee.

3

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
I was thinking... Between festive clothing and a shrine maiden outfit, which would you choose?
Hey, don't give me that funny look... It's gotta be one or the other with New Year's, right?
Of course, I'm sure I'd look ravishing in either one...
I just thought I'd pick your brain on the matter.
So what'll it be, (Captain)?
Make me happy with your answer, and I'll make sure you end the day on a really high note!
Your call.

4

Zzz... Zzz... Zzz...
Hm? These past few days, my experiments are getting more interesting. I will increase my cuteness even m—
What? New Year's Eve? New Year's Day?
Oh!
And visiting a temple!
(Captain)! Let's go out now!
Yawn... Wait...
Never mind. I'm sleepy. I think I'll just snooze through the festivities this year.
(Captain), lay down. Spend some time just catching up on your sleep. It's not so bad...
Snore...

Happy Valentine's Day!
I made some sweet, tasty chocolate just for you, Captain!
I hope you like it...

2

(Captain), (Captain)! I whipped up some chocolate just for you
Today's Valentine's, right? I know it doesn't look all that great, but...
No, wait...This is preposterous!
How could I—the genius, the goddess of alchemy—possibly fail such a simple culinary task.
Allow me to try again. Ahem, tell me, (Captain), how would you like to be handed your chocolate?

3

Heheh. Today's Valentine's, (Captain)!
I made some top-of-the-line chocolate just for you!
You will take it, right?
Teehee. Thanks, (Captain)! Go on—take a bite out of my sweet, sweet chocolate!
Mm, oooh yes... Make sure you savor the tender flavor... Hope you liked that, teehee.
So? How was it? Your body feeling funny in any way?
Like your body heating up... or heart throbbing?
Nothing? Tch, looks like I need to experiment some more.
Oh, never mind me.
Just remember to take a bite out of my chocolate next year too!
I'll make it so good you'll want to take soooo many more bites!

Wow, this is for me? In return for Valentine's?
Thank you! I'm really, really going to treasure it!

2

Yeah, yeah, what is it? Whee, a present for me?
Teeheehee, I almost forgot it's White Day. Thanks a bunch, (Captain).
Hm? What's with that look in your eyes?
A stunningly beautiful master alchemist like me deserves only the finest of chocolates. And you know it.
Furthermore I am not one to take gifts lightly. And so I gladly accept, (Captain).

3

Hey, (Captain)! Today's White Day.
The best way to pay me back would be to give me some alone time with you.
Just the two of us... to ourselves...
This is the cutest girl in the skies talking to you. So you know to say yes, right?
I was in need of a guinea pig for my experiments, and you'll be perfect.
Oh, you're going to love our time together! Teehee.

Boo! Hehehe! Hey, it's Halloween!
If you don't give me yummy candy, I'll play a prank on you!

2

Oh... I simply love Halloween!
Do you... want to be tricked? By the cutest girl in the whole world?
What's this? You have candy, (Captain)?
I see... In that case I'm afraid the trick will have to be postponed...

3

(Captain), (Captain), trick or treat!
I didn't get a chance to trick you last year, so you're gonna get it good this year!
You're getting it from the cutest girl in the whole wide world, so consider yourself lucky...
What the? Is that candy I see in your grubby paws?
I thought you were looking foward to being tricked by me...
Tch, guess we'll have to pass on it this year.
Oh, (Captain)! How feisty of you to get me so excited only to let me down at the last moment.
We're definitely doing this next year no matter what happens!

4

Trick or treeeat!
Which would you like? A trick? Or...
Oho, I see you've come empty-handed this year. Glad to see you're taking this seriously.
Last year and the year before I didn't get the chance to trick you, since you had your offering prepared.
Now... Prepare for the ultimate prank from the cutest girl in the skies...
Wait, wait. If you're that eager, then I'm just giving you what you want.
Hrgh!
You've thwarted me for the third year running!
Well played, (Captain)... We'll just have to continue our duel of wits next year.
After all, we'll be spending next Halloween together too, won't we?

Happy Holidays Cutscenes

Happy holidays!
Hey! I wonder if Santa is gonna come visit me...
He'll only come if I'm a good girl, right?

2

Go to sleep already, (Captain).
You know how important tonight is. I'm going to get to the bottom of this Santa legend.
I'll catch him when drops by in the middle of the night and make him cough up everything he knows.
Hm? That sounds so interesting that you can't fall asleep now?
Sigh... Fine, I'll put you to bed later. Go to your quarters and wait for me, okay?

3

Hey, (Captain)! Won't you spend the night with me?
Hm? What's with the surprised look on your face? I thought I'd be your Santa this year.
Why, you ask? Don't you know Santa's supposed to take center stage for the holiday season?
And no one's more fitting to play the part than a super cute girl like me!
You know it's true!
So gimme a hand, (Captain)! Every Santa's gotta have a reindeer after all.
Just be thankful you get to see me in my Santa outfit up close and personal.

4

Sigh... I wonder if Santa will finally come my way this time...
I've been such a good girl and haven't done a single bad thing all year round.
Stop. I know. You don't have to list all the exceptions.
Whatever. I didn't get to see Santa the year before or the year before that.
Humph... If he doesn't think of me as a little girl, then I'll have to use that card.
We'll have a party that runs through the night!
You gotta mix things up, what do you say?
Adults have the right to have sleepless nights anyways. You aren't going to say no to me, are you?
(Captain), tonight I won't let you get any shut eye!

Cagliostro's Grief[edit]

At the island where Cagliostro's sister spent her final years, the crew finds members from the Alchemist Guild of Helmuth and agents crawling around.



The crew lands on a small island to search for any leads about existential dissolution.
The island is also home to Cagliostro's sister, where she rests in eternal peace.
Cagliostro: ...
Vyrn: All righty! So we're going this way, right? To your sister's, um...
Cagliostro: My sister's grave? Yep, it's this way.
Cagliostro: Your jitteriness is making me jittery. No need to beat around the bush; she passed away thousands of years ago.
Lyria: Um, so... why is your sister buried here anyway? I thought you two weren't from this island.
Cagliostro: This is where she spent her final years. With her husband having passed away and her kids grown up, she gave up alchemy and retired here to live out the rest of her days.
Cagliostro: This is my first time coming here ever since you guys broke my seal... Gotta love these remote islands; hardly anything's changed at all.
Vyrn: Her final years, huh... So your sister didn't try using a new body?
Cagliostro: That's right. She preferred to go out the natural way.
Lyria: The natural way... What kind of person was your sister anyway?
Cagliostro: I guess you could say she was the cheerful and sensitive type, nothing out of the ordinary really...
Cagliostro: What really stood out was her talent in alchemy. She'd often assist with my research and even help train my disciples.
Cagliostro: Other than that she was a normal person just like anyone else. She never yearned for truth or immortality; she wished for a normal life more than anything else.
Vyrn: Cagliostro with a normal sister? Kinda hard to imagine.
Lyria: It sounds like you two got along really well—doing research together and supporting each other every step of the way...
Cagliostro: As siblings from a small rural town, that's pretty much what we were limited to.
Cagliostro: Truth is... she was happy the whole time.
Alchemist: What are you folks doing out here! This island is off-limits to outsiders!
Cagliostro: Hm?
Vyrn: I know that face! He's with the Helmuth Guild!
Alchemist: So you know about us then. Good, that makes things easier. This is our territory!
Lyria: T-territory? But this is where Cagliostro—
Alchemist: Cagliostro? You mean to say that little girl is the founder?
Cagliostro: Humph... I should be the one asking you what you're doing here.
Alchemist: Damn it! Agents, we have intruders on the loose!
Alchemist: Make them sorry they ever came! I'll call for reinforcements!
Cagliostro: Tch... You're not getting away!

Cagliostro's Grief: Scene 2[edit]

(Captain) and crew chase after the alchemists to find a most glorious structure. It appears to be a memorial constructed by the Alchemist Guild of Helmuth, triggering Cagliostro's ire for a reason unknown.



(Captain) and company defeat the agents and run after the alchemist from earlier...
Only to find a fancy and austere mansion-esque building.
Cagliostro: ...!
Vyrn: I'm guessing this building belongs to the guild.
Lyria: Look at that bronze statue of a lady... Almost makes this place feel like a palace!
Vyrn: What's that inscription over there?
"Welcome to the memorial of one of the pioneers of alchemy."
Lyria: "In loving memory of the founder's sister."
Cagliostro: Hah... Bwahahaha!
Cagliostro: Ridiculous... Absolutely ridiculous!
Vyrn: C-Cagliostro?
Cagliostro: Can you believe it? They've turned this place into a tourist attraction!
Cagliostro: That asinine riffraff dared to turn my sister into a symbol of the guild after sealing me away...
Cagliostro: Showing absolutely no regard for her personality or wishes! They've even dressed up her grave as if it's some kind of freak show!
Lyria: Cagliostro? Let's go after her, (Captain)! She went inside the building!

Cagliostro's Grief: Scene 3[edit]

Cagliostro wreaks havoc as she makes her way through every room in the memorial. When she explains that this is the spot of her sister's grave, (Captain) and crew assist her in bringing the structure down.



Cagliostro: It's payback time!
Cagliostro: One of the pioneers of alchemy, my foot!
Cagliostro: Holy Mother of Alchemic Research? How in the frickin' hell does a tangerine-loving country girl even become that?
Cagliostro: Made countless donations to alchemic research? She was the type to foolishly give all her money away to villages with no medical care!
Cagliostro destroys every flashy exhibit that comes into view as she proceeds through the memorial.
The crew catches up and attempts to calm her down.
Cagliostro: Grrgh! Oh, it's you guys...
Vyrn: Whew, finally caught up... All the exhibits and the entire gallery are fried.
Lyria: Um... What happened here?
Cagliostro: You sure as hell bet something did. This is what we've been looking for all along—my sister's grave.
Vyrn: Wha? A fancy-schmancy place like this?
Lyria: But you said your sister...
Cagliostro: That's right. She wanted a normal life.
Cagliostro: But she spent half her life helping me with my research. Could hardly call that normal.
Cagliostro: When she got older, I made sure to buy this peaceful little island just for her.
Cagliostro: If not in life, I at least wanted her to idle away peacefully in the afterlife. It was my final gift to her as family...
Cagliostro: ...
Vyrn: I'm sorry to hear that... Damn that alchemist guild!
Lyria: This is awful! How could they do such a thing to a grave?
Alchemist: So this is where you reprobates were! We'll make you regret trespassing on these holy grounds!
Vyrn: We're the ones that are gonna make you regret ever setting foot here! She never wanted any of this for her grave!
Lyria: That's right! What you've done here is just wrong!
Alchemist: Humph, as if you insignificant nobodies would ever understand. Any type of academic organization needs an absolute authority symbolizing all that is ideal in order to thrive.
Cagliostro: Oh? Authority to sustain an organization?
Alchemist: Eeep!
Cagliostro: Hehehe... I'd let you off the hook if it were for the pursuit of truth, but you're telling me you built this place for something so trivial?
Cagliostro: Ouroboros! Devour every last one of these pathetic bottom feeders!
Cagliostro: Wreck all their fake artifacts, and hell, you might as well swallow this whole damn building while you're at it!

Cagliostro's Grief: Scene 4[edit]

Cagliostro returns the land to its natural state as a vast green expanse. Though she finds nothing about existential dissolution, the incident gives Cagliostro a chance to pay respects to her late sister.



With the alchemist guild's memorial destroyed, Cagliostro returns the land to its natural state as a vast green expanse.
The crew helps Cagliostro set up her sister's grave on an inconspicuous patch of soil.
Vyrn: There, all done... Think your sister's enjoying the view?
Cagliostro: Dunno. I can't read the minds of the dead.
Vyrn: You're stumped on this even though you know the truth of the world?
Cagliostro: Truth isn't exactly all-encompassing, you know. It's going to differ for every—
Cagliostro: Agh, I hate lecturing, so I'll just leave it at that.
Lyria: Cagliostro, I plucked some flowers. Is it okay if I put them on your sister's grave?
Cagliostro: I'm sure she'd like that. That's her favorite color too... Anyway, we should get going soon.
Lyria: Sure. It's a shame we couldn't find any clues about existential dissolution here though.
Cagliostro: Oh, that? Meh, I wasn't expecting much to begin with.
Cagliostro: Just think about it. Personal belongings from thousands of years ago just lying around for us to find? Now that would be weird.
Cagliostro: All things in nature eventually rot away—it's providence.
Vyrn: Hmm, I kinda get it, but I also kinda don't...
Lyria: You weren't expecting much to begin with? But then why...
Lyria: Oh, I know! You just wanted to visit her grave!
Cagliostro: Now that's just absurd! There's no way in hell I'd ever do something so pointless!
Cagliostro: But enough talk. Back to the Grandcypher, guys! Time to look for new leads!
Vyrn: Hey, wait up!
Sheesh, Cagliostro is such a weirdo.
With mixed feelings churning within her, Cagliostro walks away from her sister's grave.
Immortal yet fully aware of the true nature of all things in existence, Cagliostro continues the adventure in search of new lands to discover.
