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[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!

4

(Captain)! I made some special chocolates this year!
All right! Anyone who wants my chocolates, raise your hand!
...
Hurry up and put your hand up! These are from the world's prettiest girl!
What? You think I laced them with something?
You serious? I'm the super cute, genius alchemist. You know that, right?
Mixing things that normally don't belong together is kinda my thing...
Wait! Wait! Don't leave.
So maybe there is a little bit of a new medicine I'm making mixed into these. But you won't die from one bite.
After all, you're an important person to me!
So... Take my chocolate and the thought behind them!
Come on. You know you're my super special (Captain)!

1

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.

4

(Captain)! You know what day it is?
Wow! I knew you would have something for me!
Thank you, (Captain)! I'm so happy!
Hehe...
What? I'm unusually cheerful?
Well yeah... I could make something like this for myself with alchemy anytime.
So it's not about what I get but who I get it from.
What do I mean?
Don't make me say it, silly!

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

1

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!

Dilemma of a Genius[edit]

Cagliostro struggles alone in her room, trying to find a way to heal Ouroboros' wounds; she regains her composure after speaking to (Captain).



The crew heads for the location mentioned in Deliford's epistle.
Inside the Grandcypher racking her brain is Cagliostro, powerless after suffering a brutal enemy attack.
Ouroboros: ...
Cagliostro: Hm, maybe I should try mixing in some gold.
Ever since the attack, Ouroboros's body has been gradually collapsing from within.
Cagliostro searches for a way to heal Ouroboros, trying her hand at different alchemic formulas.
Cagliostro: How about this?
Cagliostro: That didn't work either, so something must be wrong with the core...
As Cagliostro sighs and clutches her head in confusion, someone knocks on the door.
Cagliostro: Hm? Oh, it's you guys. What's up?
Vyrn: Heyo. You've been cooped up in your room for so long—we thought we'd come check up on you.
Lyria: Yeah... You didn't look too well, so we just wanted to make sure everything's okay.
Cagliostro: Well, I'm perfectly fine. But...
Cagliostro looks at Ouroboros with a tinge of desperation.
Cagliostro: I realized something was wrong when I couldn't bend Ouroboros to my will.
Vyrn: Now that you mention it, Ouroboros isn't looking too hot.
Cagliostro: I gave him a body like a worm as a base—and just tacked on bones and muscles on top of that.
Cagliostro: Something must've gone wrong back there. Would explain why I can't heal him.
Vyrn: Um, you kinda lost me there... Something wrong with his body, I take it?
Cagliostro: I created Ouroboros ages ago. Honestly I simply didn't know any better at the time; but looking back, that was one kooky experiment!
Cagliostro: With my injuries right now, I don't have the capacity to figure out this thing's spaghetti-like body.
Cagliostro: Damn it, this just ticks me off! I'd fix him up in a heartbeat if I were my usual self!
Vyrn: Uh-oh... I've never seen Cagliostro like this...
(Captain) and the others are most startled to see Cagliostro kicking and shouting with such acrimony.
  1. Are you okay?
  2. What's the rush?

Choose: Are you okay?
Cagliostro: Am I okay? Are you kidding me?

Cagliostro: Teehee, oh, (Captain)... I'm so flattered that you'd worry about me.
Cagliostro: Mm, I feel sooo much better already! You're the best, (Captain).
Cagliostro clutches (Captain)'s arm and looks up at him excitedly.
Lyria: Agh! Cagliostro! What are you doing to (Captain)!
Cagliostro: Ehehe... (Captain)'s so nice—I just wanted to feel his warmth up close!
(Captain) considers the best possible way to react to Cagliostro's sudden advances.
  1. Place a hand on her chin.
  2. Pinch her nose.

As if responding to Cagliostro's beaming face, (Captain) gently tilts her chin to look her directly in the eye.
Cagliostro: Ah... (Captain)...
Lyria: Eep! (Captain), wh-wh-what do you think you're doing!
Cagliostro: ...
Vyrn: Whoa! I think something's about to go down here!
(Captain) and Cagliostro gaze into each other's eyes.
Cagliostro: Humph. Don't get too carried away now, you brat. It was just a joke—a joke!
Choose: Pinch her nose.
(Captain) cries in pain after Cagliostro gives him a forceful flick on the nose.

Unable to think of anything more creative, (Captain) resorts to pinching Cagliostro's little nose.
Cagliostro: Pff! Ouch! What do you think you're doing?
With his grip still on her nose, (Captain) proceeds to gently tilt her head further and further back.
Cagliostro: Hiieee! S-stop it!
Lyria: Yikes! (Captain), that's going too far!
Seeing Cagliostro so frantically squirm, Lyria hurriedly goes in to push back (Captain).
Cagliostro: Urk! Grr, how dare you even try that on me!
Cagliostro: ...
A seething Cagliostro suddenly turns silent.
Vyrn: I'm sure (Captain) was only playing around. I hope you don't take it personally, Cagliostro.
Cagliostro: Uh-uh, it's not that. I'm surprised how cute my voice sounded just now.
Lyria: Huh? That's what's on your mind?
Cagliostro: Hiiee! Hiee...
Urgh, that super cute voice isn't coming out!
Cagliostro: I'm giving you special permission to pinch my nose again, you brat! Go on—you know you want to!
(Captain)'s little prank seems to have piqued Cagliostro's curiosity.
And thus (Captain) ends up accompanying Cagliostro in her gotta-get-that-super-cute-voice-back experiments.
Continue 1
Cagliostro: To have a little girl worry about me... Geez, I must be getting old.
Despite her energetic mouth, Cagliostro is visibly fatigued.
  1. Hold her tightly.
  2. Stroke her hair.

Cagliostro: Wh-wh-what... Aaagh!
The world-renowned genius Cagliostro is no doubt distraught at being caught defenseless against such a sly move.
(Captain) realizes what Cagliostro is feeling and takes it a step further.
Cradling Cagliostro's head, (Captain) gently whispers, "Don't fight it."
Cagliostro: ...!
Cagliostro at long last calms down.
Lyria: Huh? Cagliostro? Is everything okay?
Cagliostro: It's nothing. And back off already, (Captain). You're making it stuffy in here.
Choose: Stroke her hair.
Cagliostro: Well, enough of that. Time to get back to restoring Ouroboros.

(Captain) begins to straighten Cagliostro's ruffled hair.
Cagliostro: What's the big idea?
(Captain) remains silent, continuing to straighten her hair with a pleasant smile.
Cagliostro: Humph.
Cagliostro looks away in embarrassment but shows no signs of resistance.
Cagliostro: (Oh, she got me good! Her smile's actually really cute now that I've seen it up close...)
Cagliostro: (I'll get you back for this... Just wait till I'm back in tip-top shape—I'll be flashing you the cutest cute smile you'll never forget!)
Choose: What's the rush?
Cagliostro: Well, enough of that. Time to get back to restoring Ouroboros.

Cagliostro: Huh? Me? In a rush? Never!
Cagliostro: ...
Cagliostro: You're right... The powers I've been using up to this point went poof all of a sudden, and my trusty backup Ouroboros is in shambles...
Cagliostro: Bet he thought I was invincible too, and, well, I'm just a bit peeved at the whole snafu this has turned into.
Continue 2
Cagliostro: Well, enough of that. Time to get back to restoring Ouroboros.
Continue 3
Cagliostro: Well, enough of that. Time to get back to restoring Ouroboros.
Vyrn: Yeah, I feel for ya. Hang in there, Ouroboros!
Cagliostro: Right, can't have him dying on me now.
Lyria: What? Die? Is it that serious?
Cagliostro: The core's very delicate. An infection from the wound could be fatal.
Cagliostro: I know I can be crazy, but don't forget I'm a super genius too. I'll figure this out somehow.
Lyria: Of course... But please take it easy.
(Captain) and the others depart from Cagliostro's room.
After hearing their footsteps fade away, Cagliostro opens her mouth.
Cagliostro: It'd be so much faster if I just recreated you from scratch...
Ouroboros: ...
Cagliostro: But you know I'd never do that. I am the awesome creator, the founder of alchemy—and I'm going up to live up to that name.
Cagliostro: I'm going to do whatever it takes to save your life. After all, you've saved mine more times than I can count.
A sincerity that she has never shown anyone else flashes across her face.

Starting Small[edit]

Teaching alchemy to the senseless Clarisse turns out to be no easy feat. Cagliostro opts for a more hands-on lesson and summons a horde of goblins for Clarisse to decompose.



Cagliostro trains Clarisse in alchemy so that she may help reconstruct Cagliostro's body.
But teaching one as forgetful as Clarisse proves to be an extraordinary challenge.
Cagliostro: Equivalent exchange!

E-qui-va-lent ex-change!

Don't tell me you've never heard of it!
Clarisse: Fweh... I don't know what to say; I just don't get it! Now what's with this equal exchange thing?
Cagliostro: How should I put it... Alchemy is essentially the decomposition of matter to be reshaped into something else entirely.
Cagliostro: Meaning that if you have no matter to begin with, you can't make anything.
Clarisse: Mm... Okay.
Cagliostro: Did you even get any of that?
Ugh, this couldn't be any more tiring...
Clarisse: So... How do we get alchemy to work again?
Cagliostro: ...
Cagliostro: Maybe I just need to take a different approach...
Cagliostro: All right, enough lecturing. It's high time you got some actual hands-on practice.
Cagliostro unleashes a bright white light with some sort of spell.
Clarisse: ...?
What are you doing?
Cagliostro: I'm gathering material to work with. Just shut up and watch.
Clarisse: Okay...
Clarisse bends down and observes Cagliostro's every movement.
Cagliostro: There we go! I'll show you the steps for reconstructing these things later. Decomposing them into super tiny particles comes first!
Clarisse: You got it! One blast of my magic and bwoosh!
Cagliostro: No! Absolutely no heat! And don't lay a finger on any of their armor or weapons!
Clarisse: Whaaat?
What a hassle...
Cagliostro: Any iron mixed in with the material is going to lead to some nasty results.
Cagliostro: Here we go, Clarisse!

Starting Small: Scene 2[edit]

Clarisse imitates Cagliostro's steps in decomposition and reconstruction, but she fares poorly. Cagliostro recalls that her first alchemical success resulted largely from the fear of death, prompting her to threaten to chop off Clarisse's legs as an incentive to do well.



Clarisse: Huff... Puff... Will this do?
A huge pile of goblin dust lies before them.
Cagliostro: Hm...
Cagliostro scoops up a handful of dust and observes it intently.
Cagliostro: Not bad. Next step...
Cagliostro: Get ready for Cagliostro's personal home cooking class!
Cagliostro: We'll start by practicing the creation of a new bodily vessel for Cagliostro!
Cagliostro: Here's the material, as prepared by Clarisse; shredded goblin bits!
Cagliostro: First, take the exact amount you need and put it in a separate pile.
Cagliostro raises her hands, separating the dust into a few neatly organized piles.
Cagliostro: Once you're done, imagine the most amazingly, fabulously, ultra-cute Cagliostro you possibly can as you move on to reconstruction.
Cagliostro: Ta-da! Just add some heat and you're good as done! Revel at my beautiful replica!
The skin color appears to be a bit off, but it is no doubt the body of Cagliostro.
Clarisse: Wow! You're amazing, Cagliostro!
Cagliostro: I cut through a few details, but I hope you get the idea. Transferring my soul to this body would complete the process. Did any of that make sense?
Cagliostro: Enough from me. It's your turn to try it now. Just follow those steps and you should be all right.
Clarisse: Um, okay... I'll see what I can do!
Clarisse decomposes Cagliostro's replica into dust and begins the reconstruction process anew.
Clarisse attempts the process again and again but fumbles at the very last step each time.
Clarisse: This isn't working... It comes apart no matter how many times I try...
Cagliostro: Don't stop now! Keep those hands moving!
Clarisse: I'm tired...
Cagliostro: Huh?
Clarisse: Tired, tired, tired! I'm t-i-r-e-d! Let's take a break. I don't think I'll last a second longer!
Cagliostro: Gah, stop complaining already! You haven't even done anything yet!
Clarisse: Grr! What's that supposed to mean? You mean to say you started out doing things this hard? Psh, yeah right!
Cagliostro: I won't argue that... It's true I had a lot of trouble creating a new body for myself at first.
Clarisse: I've love to hear more on that. Maybe I'd even learn a thing or two.
Cagliostro: Fair enough.
Cagliostro: I was born with an extremely fragile body. I came to the brink of death so many times as a kid.
Cagliostro: That's when it all started—I figured if I could just somehow find a new body for myself, all my problems would be solved.
Clarisse: ...
Cagliostro: Transmutation with a person's body was too sophisticated for me at first, so I started out trying soul transferral with smaller things.
Cagliostro: It was largely trial and error: I kept chucking one abomination after another.
Clarisse: Isn't that kind of like me right now?
Cagliostro: Hm, I won't deny that.
Cagliostro: So I tried everything I possibly could... And then accidentally—unintentionally—I made some sort of tiny worm.
Cagliostro: I looked back at everything I had done until then and finally understood the secret to life... I'd say half of it was instinctual though.
Clarisse: Impressive... So you never gave up, huh?
Cagliostro: I'd be dead if I had. I was desperate.
Cagliostro: Ah, I think I get it now...
Clarisse: Hm? What's that?
Cagliostro: Something you're going to need.
Clarisse: Something I'll need? What is it, what is it!
Cagliostro: Haha! New material for you to work with! Break time is over, and Cagliostro's home cooking class is back on!
Cagliostro: Mess up again, and I'm gonna chop your legs right off to use for my own body! Just try me!
Clarisse: Wha—
Clarisse: Eeep!
Cagliostro: That's the spirit! Go on—panic! Panic is what you need more of!
Cagliostro: Here we go!

Starting Small: Scene 3[edit]

Praised for her triumph in alchemizing a bizarre yet stable lump of meat, Clarisse gains the confidence to see this lesson through. Meanwhile Cagliostro wishes there were things other than alchemy that she could leave behind.



Cagliostro: Aaargh! No, no, no! You need to consider the physical properties of the material!
Clarisse: Mm... But I am!
Tears well up in Clarisse's eyes as she desperately fiddles with the material. She appears to finally get the knack of it after some time.
Clarisse: Ah! You mean like this?
The dust piles up like never before. She adds a smidgen of heat with accompanying sparks for the final touch.
Clarisse: ...
Cagliostro: ...
What appears before them is a most bizarre-looking lump of meat unrecognizable to even Cagliostro.
Cagliostro: What the... You better not tell me you were imagining me when you constructed this.
Clarisse: Um, well... Ahem...
Clarisse: Eeek! No, please, Cagliostro! Won't you forgive me just this once? I really, really prefer my legs to be intact!
Cagliostro: Haha, I was only pulling your leg... Whatever it is you concocted here, it's still holding up after this many seconds... Not bad at all.
Clarisse: Ah, now that you mention it...
Clarisse: Hip, hip, hooray! I finally did it, Cagliostro!
Cagliostro: Hehe, how naive you are.
Cagliostro: Listen, Clarisse.
Clarisse: ...?
Cagliostro: Never just shrug off a success. Even a small one could be the spark you need to do something much bigger later on.
Cagliostro: The worm I mentioned earlier... It gave me the idea for creating Ouroboros's core.
Clarisse: Huh... You mean to say you were talking about Ouroboros before?
Cagliostro: Uh-huh... I spent so much time tweaking him to get him just right.
Clarisse: Hey, what kind of tweaks—
Cagliostro: It's a long story, so maybe I'll tell you some other time... On with the lesson.
Cagliostro: Always remember to paint a very clear mental picture of what it is you want to create. You'll get the hang of it soon enough.
Clarisse: Of course! I'll do my best!
Cagliostro: ...
Cagliostro: Come out, Ouroboros.
While watching Clarisse intently, Cagliostro seats herself on a materializing Ouroboros.
Ouroboros: ...
Ouroboros, in turn, stares at Cagliostro's face with intense curiosity.
Cagliostro: Teaching her the ropes is a serious pain in the butt, but it not's so bad if I think about what she might be able to do in the future.
Ouroboros: ...
Cagliostro: But you know... There's so much more than just my name and alchemy that I wanted to leave behind...
Clarisse: Hm? Did you say something, Cagliostro?
Cagliostro: Nope, nothing at all... We're moving on with the lesson.
As headache-inducing as it can be sometimes, Cagliostro continues to watch over Clarisse with a smile.
