The Gunsmith's Youngest
Camieux receives some winter clothing from her mother, and at the crew's insistence she tries it on. Camieux starts telling the crew how proud she is of her mother, and of her whole family, and how she wants them to be just as proud of her. She shows remarkable resolve to overcome her anxiety.
Camieux was raised by the owners of an arms manufacturer.
Hoping to cure herself of her nerves, she joins (Captain) aboard the Grandcypher.
Along their travels, (Captain) and crew come across a young girl by the name of Camieux learning to make gunpowder.
Camieux: C'mon, Camieux, why are you so spineless! Always getting scared at the littlest thing.
Wanting to train herself to be more brave, Camieux asks to join (Captain)'s crew.
Camieux: It's terrible! I'm such a coward! But, I want to change!
Camieux: Please, (Captain)! Please let me be a member of your crew!
(Captain) is moved by her plea, and welcomes her into the crew.Continue 1
Some time after Camieux had joined the crew Sierokarte comes to pay them a visit.
Camieux: A parcel… For me?
Sierokarte: Yep! Here it is!
Camieux: Huh? Ah! It's from my mother!
Sierokarte: Well then, that's my job finished, time to get back to the store!
Camieux: Thank you, Sierokarte!
I wonder what my mother would have sent me?
Looking very puzzled, Camieux opens the parcel.
Camieux: Ah! It's some clothes! Oh, and a letter too!
Camieux: "It's getting colder now. I made you some winter clothes. Please wrap up warm so you don't catch a cold."
Vyrn: Camieux! Why don't you go try them on!
Lyria: Yes! I'd love to see your new clothes!
Camieux: Wh-what are you saying? They're just new clothes, who'd want to see that?
Choose: You should still check if they fit you.
- You should still check if they fit you.
- Of course we wanna see!
Camieux: Ah, y-you're right. If they're too big I'll have to take the hem up…Choose: Of course we wanna see!
Lyria: See? Even (Captain) wants to see what they look like!
Camieux: Hmm, well if (Captain) wants to see… OK, I'll try them on.Continue 2
Camieux: I'll be right back!
Camieux: Wh-what do you think? D-do they suit me?
Lyria: Wow, you look so cute!
Vyrn: Yeah, they look great! Your mom's really talented!
Camieux: Hehehe… My mom's good at sewing, cooking, chopping wood… Everything!
Lyria: Heehee! What a wonderful mother to have! You're really lucky, Camieux.
Camieux: …She's the best. So is my dad, and my sister… I'm really the black sheep of the family…
Camieux: …When I was little I still didn't know that I was adopted.
Camieux: I asked some of the workers in the factory why I was the only one in my family with horns. That's when I found out…
Camieux: I was so shocked, I just ran out of there. I had no idea what I was doing, or what I was going to do.
Camieux: It got dark and cold, and I was so scared I started crying. That's when my sister found me.
Camieux: She was sweaty and out of breath. But when she saw me she smiled…
Camieux: She picked me up and took my hand, then walked me back home.
Camieux: It was always like that. Whenever I was scared, or when I started crying, my sister was always the one to help me.
Camieux: …When we got home that time, I saw my dad get truly angry for the first time.
Camieux: He got so mad that he started crying. And that made me cry too.
Camieux: I caught a fever not long after that, and my mother took care of me night and day, without any rest for herself.
Camieux: I really am so happy to have a family like them.
Camieux: They made me realize that family is more than blood relations.
Vyrn: Heheh! I wish I had a family like that, they sound awesome!
Camieux: They are! I'm very proud of them!
Camieux: And that's why I'm here. I want them to be as proud of me as I am of them.
Camieux: I need to stop being so scared.
Just as Camieux is saying this a shadow creeps its way over the airship and a cry pierces the skies.
Camieux: Waaaaaah! Wh-wh-what is it? A m-m-monster?
Lyria: Ah, look over there! It's a massive bird!
Camieux: Eek! I've never seen anything like it, it's huge!
Camieux: …Ah! …Haaah… haaah… Sob…
Lyria: What's wrong, Camieux?
Camieux: I… I can't believe I got so scared by a bird…
Camieux: I'm so stupid! Just when I thought I was making progress…
Vyrn: You have! Look, you got scared but you recovered much quicker than you did before!
Vyrn: I think not so long ago you'd still be screaming until the bird left.
Camieux: Y-you think so? I guess you're right…
Camieux: A little is better than nothing, I suppose. But I still have a long way to go.
Camieux: I… I'm going to try my best to grow a backbone and not be so scared!
Camieux: And then I can become a master gunpowder mixer, and help my family out!
Vyrn: Heheh! Now that's more like it!
Lyria: Yes! We're all rooting for you, Camieux!
Camieux: Thank you! I won't let you down!
Camieux has anxiety issues, but has a strong will and is determined to help out her family.
Dressed in the clothes lovingly made by her mother, she sails off into the fall skies with (Captain) by her side.
Though the winter may prove cold, Camieux is certain that the warmth of her friend's love will keep her safe.
Securing the Mountain Foundry
Per a request from Camieux's parents, (Captain)'s party goes on patrol on a mountain owned by the gunsmithy which is renowned for its rare mushrooms. During their patrols, they enjoy a little mushroom hunting of their own, until suddenly Camieux discovers some trespassers picking mushrooms. She goes to confront them by herself, and (Captain) and the others hurry after her. The party confronts the trespassers.
One fine autumn day, per a request from Camieux's parents, (Captain)'s party arrives at a mountain owned by the gunsmithy.
Camieux: Thanks for taking the request, (Captain)!
Vyrn: Hehe! This'll be a piece of cake for us. We just have to make sure no one suspicious is lurking around, right?
Camieux: Aye! This mountain is supposed to be off-limits to anyone who isn't from the gunsmithy.
Camieux: But some rare mushrooms grow here, so we allow outsiders during the fall.
Vyrn: Hmmm… Rare mushrooms, you say?
Camieux: Yep! They're called wood truffles. They're tasty, and they smell so good!
Camieux: But every year, there's always some people who enter the mountain and hunt for wood truffles without asking first…
Camieux: These people have no respect for the mountain and always wreck it in their search for mushrooms, so the gunsmithy keeps watch.
Camieux: But this year the gunsmithy got a huge order in, so things are too hectic…
Vyrn: So that's where we come in!
Camieux: Aye! Thanks in advance! And you're more than welcome to look for mushrooms while you patrol, if you like!
Lyria: Wow, that sounds like fun! Will you teach us how to hunt for them, Camieux?
Lyria: Hmm… I can't find any wood truffles at all…
Camieux: Aha! Found some! Look!
Camieux openes her satchel, which is already full of wood truffles and other mushrooms.
Lyria: That's amazing! You're really good at this, Camieux! And you know so much about edible mushrooms!
Camieux: Ehehe! Well, I've been hunting mushrooms with my dad and my big sis Coucheroux ever since I was little!
Lyria: Hehe! Aww, that sounds nice! I bet it was fun!
…Oh, did you find some mushrooms, (Captain)?
Camieux: Wow! That's a nice mushroom you've got there, (Captain)! Looks tasty!
Vyrn: Hmm? Hey, Camieux, what about this red mushroom here? Is it edible?
Camieux: Aaahh! Don't touch that! That's a poisonous mushroom! It'll give you a rash!
Vyrn: What? Really? Yikes, that was close!
Camieux: It's hard to tell which ones are poisonous from their appearance alone. You gotta be careful.
Camieux: That's part of the reason why we gotta get rid of any trespassers…
Camieux: AAAAAAAAAHHHHH! Wh-what was that sound?
Vyrn: Hey! Camieux! Wait!
…We gotta go after her, (Captain)!
Camieux takes off running, leaving (Captain) and the others behind.
It turns out that the source of the noise she has heard is, in fact, a group of men gathering huge amounts of wood truffles.
Camieux: You there! Do you have written permission from the gunsmithy to be here? Let's see it!
Trespasser: Tch! Of all the times for the owner to show up…
Camieux: Hey! You can't just uproot the wood truffles! They won't grow back next autumn if you do that!
Trespasser: Aw, shut it!
…It's just a kid, man. Let's knock her out and get out of here!
Trespasser's Friend: Sigh… Guess we don't got a choice. What a pain… Oh well. Let's get her!
Camieux: Oh yeah, tough guy? You think you can beat me? Let's see you try!
Camieux: I may not look it… but after spending time with the crew, I've gotten pretty tough! I won't lose to the likes of you!
Vyrn: There she is! And she's surrounded by a bunch of creeps! We gotta save her!
Securing the Mountain Foundry: Scene 2
(Captain) and Lyria scold Camieux for running off to confront the trespassers alone. The trespassers use this opportunity to escape, and Camieux goes after them again. By the time (Captain) and the others arrive, a mother bear has wiped out the trespassers after they kicked her cub. (Captain) and crew are forced to fight off the enraged bear.
Camieux: Hoo boy! How'd ya like that!
Lyria: Good grief, Camieux! How many times do we have to tell you not to do risky stuff by yourself?
Lyria and (Captain) turn away from the trespassers to scold Camieux for her recklessness.
The trespassers take that opportunity to escape farther into the mountain.
Vyrn: Whoa! Those guys are crazy fast!
Camieux: HEEEY! GET BACK HEEERE!
Lyria: Stop, Camieux! Don't run off alone!
(Captain)'s party follows Camieux deeper into the mountain, but they are no match for her mountain climbing expertise.
Lyria: Wh… what do we do, (Captain)? We can't let Camieux go after those men by herself!
Vyrn: Yeah! We gotta hurry, (Captain)!
Lyria: (Pant)… (Wheeze)… Camieux… probably went… this way!
Vyrn: Not good! That sounded like Camieux! I think it came from over there… Let's go, (Captain)!
Mama Bear: ROOOOOOOAAAAARRRRRR!
Vyrn: There she is! Over there!
Camieux: Help me!
Vyrn: Holy cow! That bear totally plowed through those creeps from earlier!
Lyria: Are… are you okay, Camieux? You're not hurt, are you?
Camieux: I'm fine! But Mrs. Bear here…
Mama Bear: GRRRRRRRRR!
Camieux: EEEK! Y-you see, as those men were trying to escape, one of them accidentally kicked a little baby bear…
Camieux: S-so now Mrs. Mama Bear is veeery angry!
Mama Bear: ROOOOOOOAAAAARRRRRR!
After knocking out all of the trespassers, the angry mama bear has set her sights on Camieux.
Her roar freezes Camieux to the spot, but (Captain) rushes in and shields her just in the nick of time.
Camieux: Oh my gosh! (Captain)! Are… are… are you all right?
Vyrn: Yikes! The mama bear probably thinks we're friends with those dudes!
Vyrn: We don't have a choice… We gotta fight her off, (Captain)!
Securing the Mountain Foundry: Scene 3
Having delivered the trespassers to the police, (Captain)'s crew resumes its patrolling and mushroom hunting. When night falls, they return to the gunsmithy, and Camieux's parents treat them to a mushroom-themed feast. The crew spends the night savoring the delicious meal.
Mama Bear: GRRRRRR…
Camieux: Sorry for hurting you, Mrs. Bear… I know this doesn't make up for it, but please enjoy these tasty mushrooms!
Camieux gives her the satchel full of mushrooms, and the mother bear takes her cub and wanders off deeper into the mountain.
Camieux: Now that this bear business is behind us… Let's make sure these idiots apologize for what they've done!
Lyria: They're not the only ones who should say sorry! Grrrr… You always run off alone like that!
Camieux: Gah! Umm… I… I'm sorry! I tend to get tunnel vision when it comes to this kind of thing…
Camieux: Ugh… It's one thing to be brave, but I really ought to get my temper under control, huh?
Camieux apologizes, and (Captain) and the others help her take the trespassers to the police.
After that, the crew continues its patrolling and mushroom hunting, and when night falls, they returned to the gunsmithy.
Camieux's Dad: Thank you, (Captain)! I appreciate all the hard work you and your crew put in today!
Camieux's Dad: You too, Cammy! Ha ha ha! Nothing brings me more joy than to see how my daughter has grown!
Camieux: Aww, thanks, papa… But I'll do even better from now on! You'll see!
Camieux's Dad: That's my girl, Cammy! Your papa is a lucky man to have two beautiful, hardworking daughters.
Camieux's Mom: Sigh… Come on, dear! Camieux, you too! Help me serve dinner, please!
Camieux: Yes, mama!
Camieux's Mom: Hehehe! Now then, (Captain), you and your friends are welcome to have as much of this mushroom-themed feast as you like!
Lyria: Wow! It all looks so delicious!
Camieux: My mama makes the best food on the whole island!
Camieux's Mom: Oh, Camieux! Hehe! I do hope you all like it.
Lyria: Thank you so much!
(Captain) and company devour the delicious mushroom feast that Camieux's mother has made for them.
They enjoy a wonderful night together with Camieux, her parents, and the other gunsmithy workers.
