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.

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 her younger sister, she pursued methods to avoid her early demise regardless of how the people in village thought. After many failures, Cagliostro was able to create a new female body and transferred her 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.


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 other people.

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. 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 or Main Character is in danger. Though, 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 after they display their affection to her through words or actions.

Happy Birthday Cutscenes
# Link Text

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.)


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.


(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).


Happy birthday, (Captain)!
I've baked you another cake, you lucky duck!
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.


Sorry, (Captain)!
I made cake this year too, but I think I messed up...
I'll whip up another one in a jiffy, so if you could sit tigh—
Huh? Even if it's not exactly what I wanted to make, it still tastes great?
Mm... Sorry you have to be so thoughtful even on your birthday...
The way you're able to enjoy things that are imperfect is one thing I really like about you.
You know, your influence might be rubbing off on me. 'Cause I'm starting to understand your way of having a good time.
Isn't it strange for me to change after having lived for so long?
Thanks to you, (Captain), it looks like I've still got plenty of fun to look forward to in the days ahead.
So you'd better not go kicking the bucket without my permission.
After all, you wouldn't wanna see the cutest girl in the skies lost in grief, would you?

Happy New Year Cutscenes

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


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.


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.


Yawn... So tired...
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?
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...


Hey, hey, (Captain)! Let's go to the hot spring.
An outdoor bath with a view of the New Year's sunrise would be really neat.
Of course, I'd love to get in there with you...
Oh, and don't worry about whether it'll be a mixed bath or not.
After all, gender's something you can so easily change with a little experimentation.
Not to mention there probably won't be any other guests as they'd likely be occupied with their New Year's shrine visit.
It'll be just you and me with the entire hot spring all to ourselves, (Captain).

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


(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?


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!


(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)!


Here you go, (Captain)! Valentine's chocolates!
I put all my love and affection into making them, so be sure to eat up!
Oho... You don't look the least bit wary this year.
I guess that means you now realize how near and dear I hold you.
Wait, wipe that smirk off your face right this second!
I can't believe I'm actually sober right now... How embarrassing...
Damn it, now I'm the one that's blushing. It wasn't supposed to be this way...

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


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).


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.


(Captain)! You know what day it is?
Wow! I knew you would have something for me!
Thank you, (Captain)! I'm so happy!
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!


Yay! You got chocolate just for me!
And you made them yourself too? You're sending me over the moon, (Captain)!
Huh? I look so much happier than usual?
Well, what can I say. I just really love your handmade goods.
They're the greatest—stuff that you can't make with alchemy.
You can bet I'll be relishing every last bite, (Captain). Thanks again.

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


Oh... I simply love Halloween!
Do you... want to be tricked? By the most 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...


(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 forward 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!


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.
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?


Really now, (Captain)... Showing up empty-handed can only mean you're ready to be tricked into oblivion this year too!
But enough is enough!
What does it matter how a trick plays out... Since it's just you and me, we can play the game any way we like...
What do you want to do, (Captain)?
Hehe... Do you really wanna be tricked that bad?
Or would you rather play a trick on me?

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


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 he 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?


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.


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!


Ah, (Captain). Ready to join me for another rockin' party this year?
Huh? What's with this box? I see the greeting card inside's addressed to me.
Don't tell me Santa's finally decided to give me a present after all this time...
(Hold it, I know that look on (Captain)'s face...)
(Aah, I get it. This must be a surprise from my favorite captain.)
You're way too easy to read, (Captain)...
Oh, don't mind me.
Can you pass on a message to Santa if you happen to bump into him.
Tell him, "Thanks a ton for the present! Cagliostro's suuuper happy!"
Don't forget, okay? I really want him to know how I feel...

Creating Cuteness

The crew decides to take a vacation in Auguste, but Cagliostro is not interested. Until, that is, she realizes she can use the deep-sea water there to remake herself cuter than ever. Wary of venturing into the open sea without having learned to swim, however, she asks (Captain) to teach her.

After completing a long string of missions, the crew aboard the (Captain)dcypher decides to take a break. Everyone spends their time however they want to, for the time being.
Cagliostro: Heh heh heh. Not bad. Not bad at all.
Inside one peculiar room, the sounds of bubbling liquids and Cagliostro's ominous laughter fill the air.
The founder of alchemy is, as always, spending her free time experimenting. Though she has all the time in the world, she doesn't waste a single moment to further her pursuit of knowledge.
Cagliostro: Next, if we mix this...
As Cagliostro prepares to combine a pitch-black liquid with the contents of another vial, the door to her room bursts open.
Lyria: Cagliostro! Guess what?
Cagliostro: Whoa!
Cagliostro: Oh, it's just you guys.
Cagliostro: Didn't I tell you to knock before entering? I do occasionally work with explosive materials, you know.
Lyria: Oh! Sorry...
Vyrn: Our bad... We just got so excited we forgot.
From behind the overeager Lyria and Vyrn, (Captain) peeks in.
Cagliostro: All right. I'll bite. What's going on?
Vyrn: (Captain) said we're gonna go to Auguste!
Lyria: We're taking a vacation after being busy with so many missions! Aren't you excited, Cagliostro?
Cagliostro: Is that what this is all about? You guys must really like the beach.
Vyrn: Hehe! We sure do! But what I really want is a sip of that fruit juice they sell. It's the best!
Lyria: I want some too! Then we can swim and build sand castles and...
Lyria: Oh! Io and Rosetta said that they're going to the spa while we're there!
Vyrn: Hehehe! There's so much stuff to do, we don't have time for it all!
Despite their excitement, Cagliostro makes no effort to hide her disinterest.
Cagliostro: Well, have fun. Don't forget to bring me back a souvenir.
Lyria: Um... Are you not coming?
Cagliostro: Nope. I'm busy with my experiments.
Vyrn: But if you miss out now, we might not be back for a while! Don't you wanna relax a little?
Cagliostro: Alchemy is relaxation for me.
Cagliostro: I appreciate the invitation, but this suits me better.
Cagliostro: Besides... the sun's no good for a girl's skin!
And with that, Cagliostro shoves them out of her room.
Vyrn: Ah! Hey!
Cagliostro: I'll make you guys some special sunscreen if you want.
Cagliostro: But next time, knock. Capiche?
After she shuts the door in (Captain)'s and the others' faces, Cagliostro turns back to her desk.
Cagliostro: Now, where was I?
But before she can start, Vyrn's fading voice echoes through the door.
Vyrn: The tastiest part of the juice is the fruit chunks! If only they'd float instead of sinking to the bottom of the cup.
Lyria: Hehehe. But isn't it fun scooping them out?
The rest of the conversation is lost as they travel further away.
Despite herself, Cagliostro can't get their conversation out of her head.
Cagliostro: (Of course the fruit chunks sink to the bottom. When you think about the density and mass, there's no way they would float.)
Cagliostro: Hm? Wait a second. They sink to the bottom...
With a gasp, she pulls several books off a bookshelf and flips through their pages.
Like an alchemist possessed, she begins to scribble numerous formulas down, and by the time she finishes, a mountain of papers lies atop the desk.
Cagliostro: Just as I thought. My hunch was right.
Cagliostro: Heh heh heh. Well then. A vacation in Auguste may not be such a bad idea after all.
Cagliostro: But now I have to consider...
Her smile changes quickly to a grimace, and she bites her lip.
Cagliostro: Damn... I never thought the day would come when such a problem would present itself before me.
Cagliostro: But where there's a will, there's a way.
Vyrn: Hey, hey! How much longer until we get to Auguste?
Lyria: It looks like we're close. We should get ready—
Cagliostro: Yep, yep! We need our sunscreen and our parasols, and let's not forget our cute-and-stylish sunglasses!
Cagliostro: Ta-da! Enjoy front row seats to Cagliostro's super adorable, beach-ready figure!
Cagliostro: A girl's gotta make sure she's ready for anything on her vacation in Auguste!
Lyria: Wow! That's such a cute swimsuit!
Lyria: Huh? But wait...
Vyrn: Hold up a second. Didn't you say you weren't coming with us?
Cagliostro: Geez! Don't be such a meanie, Mr. Lizard! The past is the past! Let's focus on the here and now.
Slightly dumbfounded, (Captain) and the others stare blankly back at her.
Cagliostro: Well, your stunned reactions are only natural. But there's no way this genius goddess of alchemy could cut corners on something as essential as beachwear.
Cagliostro: Anyways, I'm not here just for a vacation. My true aim is to obtain some of Auguste's deep-sea water.
Vyrn & Lyria: Deep-sea water?
Cagliostro: Yes, the seawater at the depths of the sea. I plan to use it as alchemical material.
Cagliostro: Not only is such water untouched by light and air, but its low temperature makes the water denser than normal. It doesn't mix much with surface water.
Cagliostro: Most importantly...
Cagliostro: The low temperatures and slow currents preserve the water, keeping it clean and pure. In this state, the water remains untouched at the bottom of the sea for long periods.
Cagliostro: Yes... Based on my calculations of the topography and climate, the water should be untouched for roughly a thousand years.
Lyria: Um... So... Why do you want it?
Cagliostro: To put it simply, our bodies are composed mostly of water.
Cagliostro: And deep-sea water is pure, so I'm thinking of using some of Auguste's to make myself a new body.
Cagliostro: Of course, it's all to help me boost my cuteness levels through the roof!
Lyria: Eh? Y-you can do something like that?
Cagliostro: Why are you acting so surprised? Did you forget I made this body here?
Vyrn: I guess if you put it that way...
Cagliostro: I suppose I should thank you guys for helping me figure this out.
Cagliostro: I overheard your conversation about the fruit chunks sinking to the bottom of the cup. It led me to deep-sea water and its potential uses.
Vyrn: Huh. Did we talk about something like that?
Vyrn: I'm still trying to wrap my head around the reason bein' to "boost my cuteness levels."
Cagliostro: For yours truly, nothing's more important in this world than becoming more adorable.
Cagliostro: If it makes it easier to understand though, we can just call this a sort of alchemy-style spa treatment.
Everyone else laughs awkwardly as Cagliostro boldly compares her alchemical goals to a day at the spa.
However, Cagliostro soon closes her mouth and stands troubled before (Captain).
Cagliostro: Actually... I have a favor to ask of you, (Captain).
Cagliostro: I told you about how weak my body was while I was growing up, right?
Born in a poor village with a sickly body, Cagliostro invented alchemy in order to overcome such difficulties. She has since switched bodies countless times.
Cagliostro: I was never able to do proper exercise in that body, let alone run to my heart's content. That's why...
Vyrn: Huh? What are you getting at?
Cagliostro: I understand the principles. But I've never put the knowledge into practice, and knowledge alone isn't quite enough...
Vyrn: ...?
Cagliostro: You understand, right? Or are you just pretending not to know? Are you really going to make me say it?
Cagliostro: Tsk. Fine. So I don't have any experience, which means that...
Vyrn: Are you saying you can't swim?
Cagliostro: No one asked you!
Vyrn: Eep!
Cagliostro: Tsk. Okay. So I've never swum before.
Cagliostro: I'm planning on leaving the actual collection of deep-sea water to a specialized version of Ouroboros modified to dive any depth.
Cagliostro: But before that, I'll have to ride on a boat until I find the deepest part of the sea to procure the water from.
Cagliostro: Just in case anything happens, well, I was thinking...
  1. I'll teach you to swim.
  2. Let's play in the sand instead.

Choose: I'll teach you to swim.
Cagliostro: ...!
Cagliostro: Ehehe! Thanks, (Captain)!
Cagliostro: I'll do my bestest, so treat me gently, okay? Luv ya, (Captain)!
Vyrn: Man, you've really got your work cut out for you, (Captain). But maybe it'll be fun too.

Choose: Let's play in the sand instead.
Cagliostro: Hey, were you listening to me? Is this your idea of a joke?
Vyrn: Hehehe! Don't be too mean to her, (Captain)!
(Captain) apologizes and promises to teach Cagliostro how to swim.
Cagliostro: Geez... Nobody else in all the skies would dare try to fool with me. You're one of a kind, you know that?
Cagliostro: Well, anyway... Thanks. I appreciate it.
Lyria: Hehe. We're going to have so much fun!
Continue 1
Their goals set, Cagliostro and the crew prepare themselves for the upcoming dive for alchemical material.
With high hopes and a smidgen of doubt, the founder of alchemy waits impatiently as they draw ever closer to Auguste.

Catcher in the Sea

Despite (Captain)'s aid, Cagliostro does not take well to the water. Seeing her struggle, Vyrn wonders if deep-sea water is worth the trouble, but she insists it will lead to a complete transformation. The claim sets off Vyrn's and Lyria's imaginations, but they are interrupted by a sudden monster appearance.

Aiming to make a new and improved body for herself, Cagliostro has set her sights on Auguste's deep-sea water.
However, with no swimming experience under her belt, the alchemist must first learn the basics from (Captain).
Lyria: Cagliostro! You can do it!
Cagliostro: ...!
Walking backwards in the water, (Captain) holds Cagliostro's hands as she kicks with all her might.
But as soon as (Captain) lets go, Cagliostro instantly sinks beneath the water.
Cagliostro: Gasp!
Cagliostro: Cough!
Hack... Cough, cough!
Cagliostro: Pant... Pant...
Damn... This is pretty hard.
Lyria: I wonder why you're sinking so fast.
Cagliostro: That's what I want to know! Human bodies should naturally float to the surface! So why? Why am I not floating?
Vyrn: Um... I'm pretty sure it's because you're bad at swimming.
Cagliostro: Ugh... Practice over theory, huh.
Vyrn: Why do we have to practice out in a lonely spot like this though? It'd be easier to do it over there in the shallows.
Sure enough, they are in a secluded area far from the crowded beach, as per Cagliostro's instructions.
Cagliostro: Don't you know? Distractions are dangerous when swimming, and I'd just feel oh-so-bad if someone got hurt because of little ol' me.
Vyrn: Really? You sure it's not because you don't want other people to see you practicing?
Cagliostro: You! Why, I oughta—
Lyria: Haha... We've been swimming for a while. Why don't we take a break?
Cagliostro gets out of the water and begins to towel herself dry, before she suddenly stops and brings her face close to her arm.
Cagliostro: Sniff sniff.
Cagliostro: I'd heard that the smell of the sea sticks to your skin, but I never expected it to linger even after a good towelling.
Cagliostro: I honestly didn't even notice it until now. I suppose I'll have to wash myself down later.
Lyria: Hehe. You were so focused on practicing after all.
Vyrn: You must really want that deep-sea water. Is it really that amazing?
Cagliostro: Of course it is. Once I have it in my grasp, you'd better be prepared for a complete transformation.
Lyria: Wow! Really?
Vyrn: What kind of "complete transformation" are we talking about here?
Cagliostro: You'll just have to wait. And. See!
With that said, Cagliostro plops herself by (Captain)'s side and lays down.
Cagliostro: I'll take my break now. We'll continue practicing later.
Leaving her to rest, Vyrn and Lyria walk a little ways away to start their own discussion.
Lyria: What do you think Cagliostro will look like in her new body?
Vyrn: Hmm, I dunno. Maybe like that person over there? The one in the swimsuit.
Vyrn points at a woman walking through the crowded beach a ways away.
Lyria: Oh! It's kind of hard to picture Cagliostro looking so mature...
Lyria: Since she likes cute things so much, I was thinking she'd look more like her.
Lyria points at a girl playing in the water.
Vyrn: Whoa, she's pretty young. Picturing Cagliostro's personality in that tiny body is kind of terrifying...
Before they can speak any further, (Captain) and Cagliostro slowly rise up with their weapons drawn.
Vyrn: Huh? What's wrong?
Cagliostro: Looks like we have an unwelcome guest. Unsurprising given that there's not many people around here.
Monster: Roar!
Vyrn: Whoa! A monster?
Monster: Roar!
Cagliostro: Can't you see we're busy here? Get in the way of my swimming practice, and I'll send you to sleep with the fish!

Catcher in the Sea: Scene 2

With the monster defeated, practice resumes until Cagliostro declares her swimming good enough, and the group sets sail to collect the deep-sea water. Quelling her jitters about the depths, Cagliostro prepares to have Ouroboros dive for collection until a giant monster bursts out of the water.

After (Captain) and Cagliostro get rid of the monster, they jump right back into practice. Before long, the results of their efforts begin to show.
Cagliostro: Gasp!
Lyria: Wow! That was amazing, Cagliostro!
Vyrn: You can swim pretty far by yourself now!
Cagliostro: Pant... Pant... Well, this much I can handle.
Cagliostro: That's good enough for now though. It's time to head for the open seas and harvest some deep-sea water.
Lyria: Are you sure? Shouldn't we practice just a little bit more?
Cagliostro: My true goal here isn't to swim. It's to find some alchemical material and give myself a cuteness upgrade.
Cagliostro: Learning to swim a little was just a precaution.
Vyrn: Well, if you say so. I guess we're going then.
The crew borrow a small boat from an acquaintance's beach house and make their way onto the open seas.
Cagliostro: Hmm.
As soon as they enter the open waters, Cagliostro gazes intensely at a faraway landmass with a book open in one hand.
Lyria: Is something wrong? Are you feeling seasick?
Cagliostro: No way! I'm in tip-top shape! I'm just looking for the area these documents talk about!
Cagliostro: If you're gonna do it, you gotta do it right, so we gotta find the deepest, darkest part of the sea!
Vyrn: Whoa! Can you figure that out without diving down yourself?
Cagliostro: Something like this is a walk in the park for the genius goddess of alchemy!
Having said that, Cagliostro peers over the edge of the boat and down into the dark depths of the sea.
Cagliostro: ...
Vyrn: Hm? You sure you're okay?
Cagliostro: Y-yeah! Absolutely!
Cagliostro: (Just don't think about falling overboard and we're good.)
The ship keeps moving forward for a while until finally Cagliostro calls them to a halt.
Cagliostro: The deepest part of the sea is here. Now it's Ouroboros's time to shine.
Lyria: Is Ouroboros really going to be okay diving so deep?
Cagliostro: Don't you remember? I told you I modified Ouroboros to dive any depth without a problem.
Cagliostro: The collection is easy too. Ouroboros will swallow some of the deep-sea water at the very bottom and then—
Cagliostro: Take cover!
Monster: Rooooar!
Vyrn: The heck? That's one huge fish!
Cagliostro: A small fry like this is nothing to the greatest and most adorable alchemist that ever lived! I'll show you just how cute I really am!

Catcher in the Sea: Scene 3

(Captain) and company drive the monster back, but it tosses Cagliostro overboard as it flees. Unable to put her swimming practice to use in her panic, she is saved in the nick of time by (Captain). Initially despondent over her inability to overcome her past and do things by herself, (Captain) and the others help her realize she has a whole crew of people she can rely on now.

Cagliostro: Hmm. I guess that's that.
Monster: Roar...
Vyrn: Oh! Looks like the monster's running away!
Lyria: The boat's still rocking a lot! Be careful!
Cagliostro: Hmph. That'll show you to mess with my plans.
In the next instant, the fleeing monster smacks the bottom of the boat and sends it tilting violently to one side.
Cagliostro, who is standing right next to the boat's edge, is caught off guard by the impact.
Cagliostro: Huh?
Lyria: Cagliostro!
Cagliostro: (Damn! This is bad! Falling off is not part of the plan!)
Cagliostro: (W-wait, now's not the time to panic. Otherwise, what was the point of learning how to swim? I just have to reach the surface.)
Cagliostro: (...)
Cagliostro: (Which way is the surface? I can't tell which way is up! What do I do?)
Cagliostro tries to swim to where she thinks the surface is, but the water continues to surround her in every direction.
Cagliostro: Choke!
Uneasiness seizes her mind as she starts to run out of air.
Cagliostro: (Damn it! What can I do? There has to be something!)
Cagliostro: (But Ouroboros is on the boat. And after all that effort I went through to make the diving modifications.)
Cagliostro: (Wait, that's it! I can just use alchemy to form some air!)
Cagliostro: (Who am I kidding? There's no time for that! Even if there was, the air would dissipate into the water.)
Every possible course of action flashes through her mind, but the alchemist has long since lost the ability to think clearly. All she can do is struggle futilely.
Cagliostro: (This is not good... I'm out of time... Damn it... I've really done it this time...)
Cagliostro: (I thought I'd left that frail body behind... But to drown... because I can't swim...)
Cagliostro: (I broke the boundaries of alchemy... changed bodies countless times... and lived for this long...)
Cagliostro: (Has nothing changed? Nothing changed... at all?)
Cagliostro: (Or have I always... been trapped... by my past... ?)
Her consciousness finally fades into the distance, and her body sinks further down into the deep darkness.
Her soul has seen countless rebirths and survived the ages, yet now it flickers weakly. But just as it hovers on the brink, a strong hand reaches forth to save it.
Lyria: Cagliostro! Cagliostro!
Cagliostro: Hurgh! Hack! Cough!
Cagliostro: Huh? What happened?
Lyria: Oh, I'm so glad you're okay!
Vyrn: Don't you remember? You fell overboard!
Vyrn: I don't even wanna think about what would've happened if (Captain) didn't dive after you.
Lyria: We did some first aid, but you weren't waking up so we were really worried.
Cagliostro: Is that so? I owe you one, (Captain).
She stares uncomfortably at the sea and, after a pause, gradually reveals what she experienced while she was under.
Cagliostro: Right when I was about to lose consciousness down there, I found myself resenting my original, weak body...
Cagliostro: I thought I'd already conquered those feelings by now, especially given the countless times I've changed bodies.
Cagliostro: But no matter how much time passes or how far I travel, I'll never be able to break the chains of my past...
Cagliostro: In the end, I can't do anything by myself.
Vyrn: So what if you can't! That's why we're here!
Cagliostro: What?
Lyria: Yeah! We're your friends!
Lyria: And friends always have each other's backs, no matter what trouble they're in!
  1. We'll always stick by you.
  2. I'll always be there to save you.

Choose: We'll always stick by you.
Cagliostro: ...!
Cagliostro: Heh. Of course that's what you'd say.

Choose: I'll always be there to save you.
Cagliostro: ...!
Cagliostro: Heh. Don't expect me to always play the damsel in distress.
Continue 1
Cagliostro: I shouldn't have expected any less though. Not many other people would spend their free time teaching me how to swim.
Drifting into comfortable silence, (Captain) and company sit down with Cagliostro, and together they spend a while staring out at the vast sea.
Cagliostro: Now then. Ouroboros, you're up.
Vyrn: You sure you're okay enough for this?
Cagliostro: Absolutely. Let's get this show on the road and hurry back to solid land.
Cagliostro: And once we're there, (Captain) will be the first to sneak a peek at the new and improved Cagliostro!
Cagliostro: Consider it a little reward for you, my hero!
Vyrn: She's back to her old self already.
Lyria: Ahaha... I guess so.
Cagliostro: Go forth, Ouroboros!
Command given, the specialized version of Ouroboros dives in with a splash.

Catcher in the Sea: Scene 4

Deep-sea water now in her clutches, Cagliostro wastes no time in creating her new body, but (Captain) and company see no difference until Rosetta notices her skin is now more supple. Mission accomplished, (Captain) and the others enjoy their vacation while Cagliostro loses herself in her mirror's reflection, content to sunbathe in her own image.

Cagliostro: Heh heh heh. Just like that.
With her equipment lined up in the sand, Cagliostro prepares to use the deep-sea water that Ouroboros has gathered.
To any stranger who might happen to pass by, the sight is as confusing as it is strange, completely out of place in the everlasting summer of Auguste Isle.
Vyrn: Um... So how's the deep-sea water?
Cagliostro: The quality of it is beyond what I imagined. It's as perfectly pure as yours truly, and I can think of no better way to make use of it than this.
Cagliostro: Now, feast your eyes! Don't look away for a second!
In the next moment, a vivid light emerges from Cagliostro's body and illuminates the area.
Vyrn: Whoa, that's a lotta glow!
Lyria: Cagliostro's alchemy isn't usually this bright!
Everyone shuts their eyes against the blinding light and waits for it to pass. Once it does, they slowly, fearfully, open their eyes.
What awaits them is...
Cagliostro: Hehe.
Lyria: ...
Vyrn: Huh? Hey, Lyria, do you notice anything different?
Lyria: Um, well, just from this first look, I'm not sure I can tell if anything's changed...
Vyrn: You too, huh. Does this mean that she failed?
However, Cagliostro pays no heed to the quiet conversation unfolding.
Cagliostro: Success!
Vyrn: What? But nothing's changed!
Cagliostro: Sigh. Of course the lizard doesn't notice. Take a good look.
Cagliostro: Right here!
Cagliostro: At!
Cagliostro: My skin!
Vyrn: Uh...
Full of confidence, Cagliostro bares her arm for everyone to see. But no matter how much they squint at her skin, they fail to notice any difference.
Lyria: Um...
Vyrn: Hmm... I don't get it. It looks the same as always.
Cagliostro: Tsk. You two are hopeless. (Captain), what do you think?
  1. You're cuter than ever.
  2. I don't see anything different...

Choose: You're cuter than ever.
Cagliostro: O-oh.
Cagliostro: Yes, of course! Admire this supple and radiant skin as much as you'd like!
Cagliostro: Wait, you didn't say that just to say it, right? Can you really tell the difference?

Choose: I don't see anything different...
Cagliostro: Hm. I thought so. None of you notice cuteness even if it smacks you in the face.
Cagliostro: Let me spell it out for you: this smooth and flush skin is the result of pure deep-sea water that's laid untouched for a thousand years.
Cagliostro: So long as you understand that, I might let you feel this skin, rub it even, or do whatever else it is you want.
Continue 1
Vyrn: To be honest, we thought you were gonna turn into a completely different person.
Cagliostro: Don't be ridiculous. That would never happen.
Cagliostro: I may have said this would be a "complete transformation", but this form is the result of much trial-and-error.
Cagliostro: It's not something so easily revised.
Vyrn: Geez, you really know how to get someone riled up over nothing.
Before they can continue the conversation, a new pair of voices speaks up from behind the group.
Io: Hey, hey! What are you guys talking about?
Rosetta: Hehe. You all seem very lively. Did something happen?
Lyria: Io! Rosetta! Did you already finish your trip to the spa?
Io: Yep! I'm now one step closer to becoming a proper grown-up!
Vyrn: Hehe, Cagliostro here also just finished her own spa treatment.
Io: What? She did?
Vyrn explains to them about the events that happened today and how Cagliostro's body now contains water from the bottom of the sea.
Io: An alchemy-style spa treatment? Is that really a thing you can do?
Io stares intensely at Cagliostro's body.
Io: Hmm. Well, I can't say nothing's changed...
Rosetta: Is it perhaps your skin?
Cagliostro: Oh? You're pretty sharp, Rosetta.
Rosetta: I've heard before that deep-sea water contains nutrients that help your skin stay supple and smooth.
Vyrn: Wow, I can't believe you could tell.
Lyria: Yeah, you really surprised me. Nothing gets past you!
Io: Y-yeah, I was thinking the same thing! I just didn't say it!
Lyria: Oh... I didn't notice at all.
Vyrn: Me neither. Does it really matter, though? It's just Cagliostro's skin.
Cagliostro: Just?
Cagliostro: Well, whatever. As long as I think I'm cute, then that's all that matters!
She examines herself all over, her face alight with delight.
Rosetta: Well said. I think that's exactly the kind of attitude we need when it comes to beauty.
Lyria: I see. I'll have to remember that!
Io: I don't think an alchemy-style spa treatment is something I can copy though...
With everything finally settled, (Captain) and the crew dive into enjoying their vacation.
Lyria: Io! Got you!
Io: Ah! Okay, how do you like some of this!
Vyrn: Heeey! Cagliostro! What are you doing over there? Come join us!
While they play around in the water, Vyrn calls out to the only one who elected to lounge on a beach chair instead of joining them.
Cagliostro: Sigh... The new me is cuter than ever...
Cagliostro dreamily mutters to herself as she holds a mirror in one hand and gazes upon her reflection.
Lyria: Cagliostro! Aren't you going to swim with us?
Io: Cagliostro! What are you doing?
But their questions fall on deaf ears.
Cagliostro: The swimsuit fits my cuteness perfectly... I'm just the most adorable being in the world...
Vyrn: Are you kidding me? We came all the way to Auguste, and that's what she's gonna do?
Io: Geez, she's having plenty of fun by herself. Let's just leave her.
Lyria: Ahaha...
All around the crew, the beautiful skies and sparkling ocean that Auguste Isle is known for stretch as far as the eye can see.
And yet with single-minded adoration, the super cute, genius alchemist loses herself in the mirror, content to sunbathe in her own image.
