Magic Circle Greeting
As they investigated a certain abandoned house, our heroes accidentally triggered a magic circle. Just then, a girl by the name of Cerberus appeared from within the magic circle. Our heroes tried to decipher what was written in the magic circle, but the girl told them to take responsibility for their actions, and so they decided to travel together.
(Captain) and company had taken up a request to investigate an abandoned house.
Vyrn: Wooow... It’s really been left to rot, huh. I wonder who lived here? What was their life like?
Vyrn: Gulp... There’s a huge magic circle over there on that wall... That’s not normal, dude...
Lyria: This place looks haunted... I’m scared...
Vyrn: Watch your step. The floor’s littered with books and other junk...
Lyria: Oh! (Captain)!
(Captain) tripped over a book on the floor and fell.
Vyrn: What did I just tell you?! You okay?
Vyrn: Wh-what the?! The circle’s activated! Something’s coming out!
???: Did you call us? Woof!
???: What the? Woof! What’s with this little lizard thing?!
???: It’s the girl who always comes when called...
???: Ta-daaa! Look who’s here! It’s Cerberus!
Vyrn: What the? Who’s this dog-puppet girl...?
Cerberus: You’re the one who summoned me here, right? Ooh, you’re cuter than I was expecting!
Mimi: More importantly, you there, lizard! What did you just call us?! Woof!
Coco: Depending on how you answer, we might just eat you! Woof!
Cerberus: Aww, it’s fine, you guys! They went to all the trouble of calling us out here, after all!
Cerberus: Say, Master! Let’s go on a walk before you start your work! Take me outside!
Lyria: Master? Is she referring to (Captain)...?
Lyria: This person is... weird... I don’t entirely understand it, but she gives off a weird vibe...
Vyrn: The dog-puppet girl, you mean? Well, it’s not just her vibe. She looks just as weird as she feels...
Mimi: That’s the second time that lizard has called us dog puppets! Woof!
Coco: I won’t let it slide anymore! Woof! I’ll roast him and feed him to the birds! Woof!
Vyrn: I... I am NOT a lizard! And... Wait, feed me to the birds?!
Cerberus: Nooo fightiiing! Forget all that! Let’s talk to Master instead!
Mimi: Did we step on something? Woof!
Coco: A different magic circle from the one we came out of? Woof!
Vyrn: Something else is coming out this time! (Captain)! Get ready!
Lyria: I-It was a monster this time!
Vyrn: The likes of which we’ve never seen, either! Hey! (Captain)! We should run...!
Cerberus: No pranks allowed, silly monster!
Lyria: The monster disappeared...
Vyrn: And all it took was a single glare... Just who are you, dog-puppet lady?
Cerberus: How to explain it... I’m Cerberus the Hellhound! Grrrr!
Cerberus: I can’t tell you anything more. It’s my little s-e-c-r-e-t!
Mimi: You should know of us. Woof!
Coco: After all, you summoned us. Woof!
Vyrn: Uhh, I’m pretty sure this is the first time we’ve met! Although... I’m not entirely sure...
Mimi: Forget all that. State your business. Woof!
Coco: Now that you’ve summoned us, make it quick. Woof!
Vyrn: Our business, you say...? Honestly, we never meant to trigger that magic circle... It was an accident...
Vyrn: We didn’t even make this magic circle. How does it work?
Mimi: You useless lizard! Woof! The best contribution you can make to society is to let us turn you into bird food! Woof!
Coco: We can’t go back without doing our job! Woof! If you accidentally summoned us, then take responsibility and look into it! Woof!
Lyria: Look into... what, exactly?
Mimi: The purpose behind why we were summoned here. Woof!
Vyrn: You can tell us to look into it all you want, but... You’d be better off asking the person who used to live here for that kinda information.
Lyria: U-Um... Hey! Maybe if we examined the magic circle, we could figure it out?
Vyrn: O-Okay! (Captain)! Let’s go check out that magic circle back there!
Our heroes drew close to the circle that (Captain) had activated to summon Cerberus.
Vyrn: ?! Th-this writing...!
Lyria: The handwriting’s too messy... I can barely read it...
Mimi: I don’t know why we were called here. Woof!
Coco: And now we can’t go back! Woof!
Cerberus: Which means...
Cerberus: We’ll be stuck here until you figure out what’s written in the circle!
Mimi: Gee, how convenient! Woof!
Coco: I’m getting really angry! Woof!
Cerberus: Oh, it’s fine! There’s plenty of work here that we can’t do anywhere else!
Cerberus: So, that being said... Until we learn why we were called here, you guys are stuck with us!
Vyrn: Whoa, whoa, whoa... I’m not so sure about this... How do you feel about it, (Captain)?
Choose: I guess, if that’s how it has to be
- I guess, if that’s how it has to be
- Glad to have you with us
Mimi: Glad you understand! Woof! You should have said that sooner! Woof!
Coco: I see you’re a grade above that gutless scaredy-lizard! Woof!
Vyrn: How many times do I have to say it? I'm NOT a damn lizard!Choose: Glad to have you with us
Vyrn: But... We can’t guarantee this dog-puppet girl is on our side!
Mimi: No worries! Woof!
Coco: If we end up enemies, we’ll make things nice and painless for you! Woof!
Vyrn: H-hey! Are you sure we should take her with us?!Continue 1
Cerberus: Haha! Let’s worry about the details later! For now...
Cerberus: Since you’re the one who summoned me... Take responsibility, p-l-e-a-s-e! Okay, Master?
And so, the mysterious girl who called herself Cerberus ended up joining forces with (Captain) and company.
This mystery girl had popped out of a magic circle oozing strange vibes. Her true identity was surely shrouded in enigma.
Confessions of a Mage
Being summoned unintentionally, Cerberus decides to enjoy her time since she’s here anyway. “Don’t you want to be with me?”... is what Cerberus says to (Captain) right before some monsters appear.
Mimi: So why were we called here, woof?
Coco: Who is drew the magic circle to summon us, woof?
Mimi: Hey, lizard! Do something, woof!
Vyrn: D-Don’t take it out on me!
Cerberus: Stay calm! We’re here anyway, so we might as well enjoy it!
Coco: You! Go and try to decipher it again, woof!
Vyrn: Nothing will change no matter how many times you look at it. The writing is so messy. I have no idea what’s written.
Mimi: We’ll get yelled at if we take too long to go back, woof.
Coco: I’m scared of being punished, woof.
Cerberus: Don’t worry! We’ll do our jobs here, too...
Cerberus: Besides...! (Captain), don’t you want to be with me?
Choose: I want to be with you.
- I want to be with you.
- Not really.
Cerberus: You’re so kind! I’m so glad it was you who summoned me, (Captain)!Choose: Not really.
Cerberus: We're...? You actually...?
Coco: The answer won’t change even if you’re being annoying, woof. Besides...Continue 1
Mimi: Talk time’s over, woof.
Coco: Something’s coming out, woof! Be careful, woof!
Cerberus: Oh, it’s a puny monster? Aha! Let’s play with it a little! Let’s go, (Captain)!
Confessions of a Mage: Scene 2
Vyrn is surprised at how the monsters they fought earlier appeared out of thin air. That is when the mage who drew the magic circle to summon monsters appears. He states that he drew the transport circle to summon Cerberus, and sends monsters at (Captain) and party, saying that the fruits of his research are his to keep.
Vyrn: Hey, what was that?! They just appeared from out of nowhere!
Cerberus: Don’t worry! I’ll beat down that puny monster right away!
Mage: How dare you call it puny! I’m actually quite proud of this creation!
Vyrn: W-Who are you?! Did you do this?!
Mage: Cerberus! I was the one who drew your transport circle!
Mimi: He finally came out, woof.
Coco: Tell us what you wrote on the circle, woof.
Mage: N-Never mind that...! Why are you with them?!
Mimi: Hey, this is important!
Coco: We’re in trouble because we can’t find a way back, woof! We’re all jumbled up, woof!
Mage: Skyfarers... This is the fruit of my research... I won’t let you have them!
Cerberus: He’s going after (Captain)! But I won’t let anyone hurt Master!
Confessions of a Mage: Scene 3
(Captain) and company question the mage about why he would have sent monsters at them after summoning Cerberus through the transport circle. But the mage’s explanation is incomprehensible. Cerberus reacted to the mage saying the research was a failure and is now motivated to force him to apologize. (Captain) and party start another fight with the monsters that the mage summoned.
Vyrn: W-Wait a second! Why would you send monsters at us?! Why did you summon her in the first place?!
Mage: My magic is superior... to the likes of machines... I...
Mimi: What is this fraudster talking about, woof?
Coco: Stop mumbling and speak clearly, woof!
Mage: That woman... is a failure of my research...
Mimi: Failure? He’s rude, woof. I’ll show you what happens if you make us mad, woof.
Coco: Time to force you to apologize, woof!
Cerberus: It’s too late to regret it now!
Mage: Ugh... I don’t care about you!
Vyrn: What’s going on with this mage? He’s talking nonsense.
Cerberus: Well, whatever the case, you can just leave me alone!
Mage: Shut up! I won’t allow that to happen! I’ll show you my greatest monster!
Vyrn: He’s summoning monsters out of thin air! Watch out!
Confessions of a Mage: Scene 4
The mage tried to explain why Cerberus was summoned through the transportation circle that he drew long ago. However, Cerberus added a few lines to the circle and transports the mage somewhere else... And so, Cerberus ended up staying with (Captain) and company.
Mimi: You all out of stuff to say, woof?!
Coco: That monster was nothing.
Mage: Y-You actually defeated it...
Vyrn: Hey... Could you slow down and explain what's going on?
Vyrn: If you don't do something about it, who knows what that puppy girl will do to you?
The mage begins to talk about the time he created Cerberus' transportation circle.
Mage: As I said before... Summoning her was sort of an accident...
Mage: I've been studying transportation magic, you see...
Mage: Nowadays, everyone relies on machines... like those barbaric airships to get around. No one tries to use magic for travel anymore...
Mage: With humans relying so much upon the convenience of machines... I suspect the mystical power of humans will slowly diminish...
Mage: That's why I experimented through trial and error, and finally completed that transportation circle.
Mage: I left it alone without activating it, never suspecting that something like this would happen...
Vyrn: You mean... you only wanted to complete your transportation magic?
Mage: That's right. I didn't think it could actually summon anything. It's the first real result that came from my years of research...
Mimi: Woof, what did you write in the circle?
Coco: We can't leave until we finish the job that's written here, woof woof!
Mage: I don't remember... It's been so many years...
Vyrn: I have a copy of that magic circle! The writing is too sloppy for me to read, though.
Mage: Let me see it. Hm, I do have awful handwriting... Uhh... "I... hereby... "
Cerberus: Wait a minute! That circle wasn't a failure, you know.
Mage: What? Not a failure...? What are you talking about...?
Cerberus: If you just write this... right here... There!
Mage: T-This is...
Vyrn: H-hey! He disappeared!
Mimi: Woof! What did you do?!
Cerberus: Mmm? I just added some lines is all.
Mimi: Woof, you reversed the effect of the circle!
Coco: You sent that fraud to the other side, woof!
Lyria: Whaaat?! Then, that mage is...
Cerberus: Haha, don't worry! He seemed like he'll be okay!
Cerberus: I'm sure he'll be back soon! Right, (Captain)?
Mimi: If you completed the circle...
Coco: You must know what was written on it, woof!
Cerberus: Who knows?
Cerberus: Anyway... We're back where we started!
Cerberus: I can't go back for a while, so I'll stick around with master for a while longer!
Cerberus: You're the one that activated the circle, right? So... you need to take responsibility!
The only lead they were able to decode on the transportation circle vanishes with a bright light.
Cerberus' walk on this side of the circle goes on for a while longer.
Cerberus goes looking for (Captain), hoping to make the captain her new true master. Things quickly turn hostile when she bumps into Sandalphon, as Coco and Mimi perceive him as an enemy. Fortunately, Cerberus is able to calm things down and asks Sandalphon for some coffee.
Cerberus is basking in the warm weather one beautiful afternoon on the Grandcypher.
Cerberus: Love the breeze today! Days like this are best spent napping under the sun!
Coco: Geez, how carefree can you be! We should be thinking about what to do next! Woof!
Coco: We can't afford to be kicking it back without a care in the world while you-know-who's getting stronger day by day. Woof. Woof.
Cerberus: Huh? You sure about that? Maybe you two are just mistaken.
Mimi: Not in a million years! We'd know what the deal is with our real master! Woof!
Mimi: Chances are that seal's gonna break sooner rather than later. Woof.
Coco: We'd better haul ourselves back to the other side, or we're gonna be in for a rough spankin'! Woof!
Cerberus: Aw, shucks. It was so nice to be free of those chains once the master was sealed away.
Cerberus: And you two seem to be enjoying the freedom just as much as I am.
Coco: That's for sure. Woof...
Cerberus: Ooor... Would you guys rather go back to that boring old life?
Cerberus: A life where our master wouldn't even take us for walks no matter how obedient we were in following those distasteful orders.
Coco: Well... We were never meant to be free to begin with. Woof.
Mimi: Either way, we're gonna go back to being servants once the seal breaks. Woof.
Mimi: And I'd rather be a good little puppy about it so that the spanking doesn't hurt too much later. Woof.
Mimi: That's our fate. It was always meant to be this way. Woof.
Cerberus: So, in other words...
Cerberus: A big obstacle's in the way of our freedom.
Cerberus: We simply need a new master. And we've already found the perfect candidate.
Coco: What are you saying! Woof!
Mimi: Yeah, how would we even change our master to begin with? Woof!
Cerberus responds with a playful smile.
Cerberus: Now we have the perfect reason for (Captain) to become our real master!
Coco: Hold it right there! Are you sure (Captain)'s the right choice? Woof!
Mimi: You can't be serious! (Captain)'s a filthy skydweller! Woof!
Cerberus: I don't see what's the big deal. The point is for us to not have to go back.
Cerberus: Besides... Just imagine how much fun it's gonna be with (Captain) as our true master.
Cerberus: The captain wouldn't mind playing with us and taking us for walks every day.
Cerberus: And we don't have to do anything we don't want to either.
Coco & Mimi: ...
Cerberus: Hahah, your silence tells me you think this isn't such a bad idea.
Coco: I like the sound of it. I'm just not sure we've chosen the right person... Woof.
Mimi: What other options do we have? Woof.
Cerberus: Aw, c'mon now. You might say that, but I know that deep down you're both big fans of the captain.
Mimi: Th-that's not true! The most I'll admit is that (Captain)'s pretty good at grooming us! Woof!
Coco: That's for sure! Also, (Captain) doesn't get me and Mimi confused! But that's all I'll acknowledge! Woof!
Cerberus: Aw, look at you guys heap the praise on our captain!
Cerberus: Well, let's go make it official.
Cerberus is in high spirits as she goes off to look for (Captain).
(Captain) and company are relaxing in a room, munching away at snacks.
Cerberus: There you are, (Captain). I thought you might be here.
Vyrn: Heyo. How's it goin', Puppy Girl?
Cerberus: I have a favor to ask of (Captain)...
After taking a good whiff with her nose, Cerberus turns to the coffee on the table.
Cerberus: What is that, (Captain)? It smells so good.
Lyria: It's coffee. Would you like some too?
Vyrn: I'm not sure that's such a good idea. Coffee's supposed to be poisonous to dogs.
Coco: You better not be comparing us to your average doggy! Woof!
Mimi: Yeah, we can even munch on chocolate! Coffee can't be that far off! Woof!
Lyria delightedly pours coffee into a cup and hands it to Cerberus.
Cerberus: Thanks! Let's have a sip—
Cerberus: Eek! It's hot!
Lyria: Oh, sorry about that. Maybe I should've waited a bit first.
Cerberus: It's fine... It's just hotter than I thought it would be. Then again...
A mischievous smile plays on Cerberus's lips as she turns to (Captain).
Cerberus: Hey, (Captain). How would you like to blow on my coffee and cool it down for me?
A sheepish grin spreads over the captain's face.
Coco: Something's real suspicious about that grin! What could (Captain) possibly be thinking? Woof!
Mimi: Tell us what's on your mind! Spit it all out! Woof!
Sandalphon: (Captain), would you like a refill—
Coco & Mimi: ...
Sandalphon tosses his tray aside and readies his sword in a panic.
Coco and Mimi, too, take up battle positions.
Coco: We sure didn't expect to find you here! Woof!
Mimi: We've found you at last! Now to tie you up and send you back to Pandemonium! Woof!
Things quickly grow volatile.
(Captain) and company try to defuse the situation.
Lyria: What's gotten into everyone! No fighting allowed on the ship!
Vyrn: Let's all settle down! For starters, how do you guys even know each other?
Mimi: Quiet, you! This is our problem! Woof!
Cerberus: Coco, Mimi, stop right there! You're scaring (Captain).
Mimi: You're being way too relaxed if you ask me! We need to nab this guy! Woof!
Coco: Yeah, what Mimi said! Woof!
Cerberus: Sigh... I've been avoiding Sandalphon because I figured things would turn out like this...
Coco: Wait, you knew he was here all along? Woof!
Mimi: What a risky play! Don't you know the danger he poses? Woof!
Cerberus: Nah, it's all good. Especially since we'll be going with a new master.
Cerberus: So I need you two to stay put, okay?
Mimi: At this rate, we'll be in deep doo-doo if we don't change our master. Woof.
Coco: We're gonna get so much more than a spanking if it gets out that we found Sandalphon and let him go without so much as a growl. Woof.
Cerberus & Co.: You don't plan on fighting... Good.
Cerberus: Mm-hm. No need for hostilities here.
Cerberus: Anyway, Sandalphon, don't you have any cold coffee?
Cerberus: My tongue burns easily, so I can't handle hot beverages. It would really make my day if you had some cold coffee!
Cerberus: I mean, it'd be a shame if I'm the only one who doesn't get to drink something, right?
Cerberus: And as thanks, I'll answer any questions you might have.
Sandalphon: Fair enough.
Vyrn: Sheesh... Sounds like one wacky relationship you guys have...
Cerberus: It's decided then—a chat over cold coffee.
Sandalphon sheathes his sword and goes off to the kitchen to get some cold coffee.
Not quite sure what to make of what just happened, (Captain) and company shrug at each other.
Cerberus's Truth: Scene 2
Sandalphon reveals that Cerberus was originally created to be the watchdog of Pandemonium. She was sealed there along with her master, the archangel Kokabiel. Split into three separate Cerberuses because of her overwhelming power, it was the Cerberus of Instinct that made her way out and joined the crew.
Happy to oblige with Cerberus's request, Sandalphon returns from the kitchen with cold coffee.
Cerberus happily takes a sip of the beverage.
Cerberus: Hahah. This is more my speed.
Sandalphon: Well? What's your reason for being here?
Cerberus: Why don't you tell him all about how we first met, Master?
(Captain) explains how the crew first crossed paths with Cerberus.
Sandalphon: She suddenly popped out of a magic circle?
Mimi: We were pretty surprised ourselves with what that crazy fella pulled off. Woof.
Coco: It was pure luck that his cruddy magic circle happened to connect to our world. Woof.
Sandalphon: Is a mortal's magic really capable of such a thing?
Cerberus: It must've been fate. Surely Master and I were destined to meet that day.
Sandalphon: So you say... Then again, we're talking about (Captain) here, so that's a very real possibility...
Sandalphon: Still though...
Sandalphon clutches his head, a perplexed expression crossing his visage.
Lyria: Um, so you two used to know each other?
Sandalphon: Well, we've never spoken directly.
Sandalphon: But I could see for myself just how wicked she was during my confinement in Pandemonium.
Vyrn: You sure we're talkin' about the same Puppy Girl? What's this Pandemonium thing anyway?
Sandalphon: Has Cerberus told you nothing? She is the watchdog of Pandemonium...
Sandalphon: It's what she was created to do.
Vyrn: No way!
(Captain) and company cannot contain their surprise.
Vyrn: Strange, I've always found Cerberus to be way too friendly to watch over a place like that.
Cerberus: That was a long, long time ago. Nowadays, I'm just (Captain)'s adorable pet!
Cerberus: So be sure to show me lots of love, (Captain)!
Sandalphon: Anyhow, it sure is a surprise to see you in the Sky Realm...
Sandalphon: I once heard that you were bound to Pandemonium by a subjugation bond...
Sandalphon: Though I may have simply misunderstood.
Vyrn: A subjugation bond? What's that all about?
Cerberus: I think Sandalphon's talking about the chains that tied us to Pandemonium.
Cerberus: To make sure we could handle the job, we were given great power.
Coco: We had to be up to snuff to watch Pandemonium's prisoners! Woof!
Mimi: We pack a mean bite when we mean business! Woof!
Cerberus: But certain Astrals found us to be far too strong to be left to our own devices.
Coco: That's why they placed a restraint on us. Woof.
Mimi: To prevent us from running about freely. Woof.
Cerberus: That restraint is the subjugation bond... It forces absolute obedience on us.
Cerberus: Meaning we have to obey our master no matter what.
Sandalphon: Hold it. If that's true, then you have no freedom.
Sandalphon: Which would mean you're here only because your master ordered it... Am I wrong?
Sandalphon grows wary at Cerberus's words.
Cerberus: Nuh-uh. The subjugation bond holding us back is no more... We're without a master right now.
Sandalphon: What do you mean?
Cerberus: Our true master is an archangel named Kokabiel.
Cerberus: Using her special privileges as warden of the place, she conducted some pretty nasty experiments in the name of research.
Cerberus: Fortunately she was eventually found out, captured, and sealed away in Pandemonium.
Cerberus: We were sealed away too, along with the subjugation bond.
Lyria: Huh? But you're right here with us, Cerberus.
Cerberus: Oh, right. I guess I forgot to tell you guys.
Cerberus: There's actually three parts to me: instinct, reason, and power. And all of me was sealed in Pandemonium.
Cerberus: The Cerberus you see before you is instinct.
Cerberus: Locked inside the seal, I kept thinking about how much fun it'd be to go play outside.
Cerberus: The summoning circle must've picked up my wishes and transported me here.
Cerberus: Just goes to show how much of a coinkydink it is that I wound up here!
Sandalphon: You mentioned something about changing your master.
Sandalphon: I suppose that would essentially mean giving someone else absolute authority over you?
Cerberus: Mm-hm! I have my reasons for wanting a new master ASAP!
Hoping for a show of generosity, Cerberus clings to the captain.
Cerberus: (Captain), you remember how I said I needed a favor?
Cerberus: Well, that favor is for you to become my master for real!
While (Captain) and company are flabbergasted...
Cerberus looks straight into the captain's eyes with excited anticipation.
Cerberus's Truth: Scene 3
Kokabiel was a cruel master who restricted Cerberus's freedom and often punished her. Not wanting her to suffer anymore, (Captain) officially becomes her new master through a subjugation bond. The hellhound is overjoyed with her newfound freedom under the auspices of the captain.
Cerberus is serious about wanting the captain as her new master.
(Captain)'s mouth is agape at the request.
Choose: Why me?
- Why me?
Cerberus: You're trustworthy, and you're a ton of fun to be around.
Cerberus: You definitely wouldn't treat us as just another tool like Kokabiel does.
Coco: Funny thing is, I always thought of us as nothing more than a tool. Woof.
Mimi: She subjected us to all sorts of cruel and unusual punishment. Woof.
Mimi: I almost cried that one time she shaved me bald. Woof...
Coco: She also left us without food for days on end. Woof.
Cerberus: Worst of all, we couldn't go on walks or play around.
Cerberus: And every job she ever gave us was a total bore.
Cerberus: Thankfully... You're the total opposite of that, (Captain).
Cerberus: You regularly take us for walks, you groom us, and you play with us.
Cerberus: That's why I choose you, (Captain).
Cerberus: Besides, things are going to get real hairy if I don't get myself a new master soon.
Vyrn: Whaddya mean?
Mimi: Kokabiel and the subjugation bond are both sealed on the other side, which allows us to do as we please on this side. Woof.
Coco: Thing is, we sniff activity around the seal. If Kokabiel breaks through it, we'll be forced to go back at once. Woof.
Cerberus: And when that happens, it'd likely be goodbye for good.
Cerberus: Which would suck big-time. Wouldn't you two agree?
Mimi: It's like comparing a mud ditch to a mud pit. And yeah, I suppose the ditch is somewhat better. Woof.
Coco: We won't have to go back to that mud pit if we change our master now. Woof.
Sandalphon: So that's your reasoning, huh...
Mimi: Freedom would be ours. Woof.
Coco: And there'd be no need for us to have to drag Sandalphon back. Woof.
Cerberus: Mm-hm. No one would have to get caught up in a battle between me and Sandalphon.
Sandalphon: Understood, but is changing your master really possible?
Mimi: The filthy fallen angel with a twisted personality's got a point! Is it even possible? Woof!
Cerberus: There are special rules in place for the subjugation bond.
Cerberus: If the current master of the bond should become incapacitated, the servant is allowed to renew the bond with a different master.
Cerberus: If no one else has been specifically chosen beforehand to be the next master, then the servant gets to freely choose the next candidate.
Cerberus: Once the new subjugation bond is forged, the previous one is rendered null.
Cerberus: Hope that clears it up!
Coco: I had no idea. Woof.
Mimi: H-how did you even know that? Woof!
Cerberus: Hahah, a doggy's gotta have her secrets!
Sandalphon: So all the pieces are in place. Your current master's sealed off, and there's no one else in line.
Sandalphon: That explains why you're free to choose (Captain) as your next master...
Cerberus: Uh-huh, that's right!
Cerberus: Please, please, pretty please, (Captain). Won't you become our master for real?
Cerberus: If you agree to it, we'll be able to do more for you than ever before!
Coco: Being bossed around by a grimy skydweller doesn't sound like fun. Sure beats rolling around in a mud pit though. Woof.
Mimi: I can feel my stomach turning inside out at the thought of (Captain) as master, but yeah, the mud pit's definitely worse. Woof.
Vyrn: The puppies don't exactly sound convinced. You sure about this?
Cerberus: As sure as can be! They're just trying to act tough!
Coco & Mimi: Humph!
Sandalphon: Well, (Captain)? What do you say?
Sandalphon: Personally, I would prefer if you became Cerberus's master.
Vyrn: Oh yeah? That's a surprise, comin' from you.
Sandalphon: If (Captain) goes through with this, then I get to avoid an unnecessary battle.
Sandalphon: And we can mitigate the risk of someone more dangerous subjugating her.
Choose: You sure I'm the right choice?
- You sure I'm the right choice?
- All right. Let's do this.
Cerberus: You're my number one choice!
Cerberus: No one else walks, plays, and naps with me like you do!
Cerberus: You're the master of my dreams!
(Captain) gives an understanding nod.
Cerberus: Thank you, (Captain)!Choose: All right. Let's do this.
Cerberus: Thank you, (Captain)!Continue 1
A relieved smile spreads across Cerberus's face.
Choose: So how does this work?
- So how does this work?
Cerberus: One second.
Cerberus produces a collar and hands it to the captain.
Cerberus: You see that jewel on the collar? You have to drip some of your blood on it.
Cerberus: Then you put the collar around my neck, and our bond is complete!
(Captain) does as instructed.
In the next moment, the collar turns into chains of light that wrap around Cerberus's body multiple times over.
Cerberus: Wonderful, now we're bonded. Try giving me orders, (Captain)!
Choose: Gimme your paws!
- Gimme your paws!
Cerberus & Co.: Woof!
Cerberus gently places her paws on (Captain)'s hands, the sign of a well-mannered canine.
Coco: Wh-what an embarrassment this is... Woof!
Mimi: For the mighty watchdog of Pandemonium to have to play games with (Captain) shows how far we've fallen... Woof!Choose: Um...
Vyrn: Gimme your paws!
Coco: You picking a fight with us? You're on! Woof!
Mimi: Let's see you talk big after I chomp down on you headfirst! Woof!
Vyrn: Whoa! Whatever happened to absolute obedience?
Cerberus: (Captain)'s the only one we pledged allegiance to!
Coco: Hahah, prepare yourself! Woof!
Mimi: We're sending you to meet your maker! Woof!
Vyrn: Ack! (Captain), you've gotta stop 'em!
Lyria: Ahahaha...Continue 2
Cerberus: Haha. May we be together forever and always, (Captain).
Cerberus: I trust you'll take very good care of me.
Grinning from ear to ear, Cerberus snuggles up to (Captain).
The captain reciprocates with a wry smile.
Cerberus: Now we're officially (Captain)'s pets!
Coco: Whatever. More importantly, what do we do next? Woof.
Mimi: Come to think of it, there's no way Kokabiel's going to let this lie if she finds out what we've done. Woof.
Coco: Yeah, she'd be beside herself. Woof.
Cerberus: Does it really matter though?
Cerberus: She no longer has anything to do with us.
Mimi: That hag's gonna try to get us back for sure. Woof.
Coco: Worst-case scenario, she might even go after the crew. Woof.
Cerberus: When that time comes, we'll just have to teach Kokabiel a lesson she won't forget. For our sakes too.
Coco: You okay with that? Woof.
Cerberus: I don't see why not. We belong to (Captain) now!
Cerberus: And it's every pet's duty to protect their master!
Coco: Don't get the wrong idea now. I've been waiting for the chance to sink my jaws into her. Woof.
Mimi: It's a chance we won't get again. I'm gonna chew her out for every bit of pride she's worth. Woof.
Cerberus: Hahah... I'm already looking forward to being spoiled by (Captain) tomorrow.
Cerberus: First thing's first...
Cerberus imagines what her future will be like, a sparkle in her eyes.
Though Coco and Mimi may grumble, they share in her joy.
The mage who once summoned Cerberus shows up before the crew. Something about him seems different as he gives the order for Cerberus to return—an order that the hellhound gleefully refuses.
The crew is taking it easy one sunny afternoon.
Lyria: Phew, it sure is nice to just relax and enjoy ourselves sometimes.
Vyrn: You said it.
Cerberus: Can you brush me, (Captain)?
(Captain) accepts the brush and gently combs Cerberus's hair, tail, and ears.
Cerberus: Mm... Teehee, (Captain), go over that spot again. It feels sooo good... Oh, yes...
Vyrn: From the way you're moaning, you sound like you're in bliss, Puppy Girl.
Cerberus: What can I say? (Captain)'s just that good at making me feel good.
Lyria: Maybe I should ask (Captain) to brush me too...
Vyrn: You sure have been stickin' to (Captain) like glue lately, Puppy Girl.
Cerberus: Haha. I mean, I'm (Captain)'s pet after all, aren't I?
???: I've found you.
A magic circle appears beside the crew.
A familiar-looking mage comes out of it.
Cerberus: Stuff like this happens too.
Lyria: Eep! Who's this all of a sudden... Wait...
Vyrn: Hey, that's the guy who drew the magic circle that Puppy Girl came out of.
Lyria: Yeah, I think you're right. But after that...
Vyrn: Puppy Girl sent him packing. To "the other side," I think it was...
Lyria: Cerberus wasn't kidding when she said the mage would be back before (Captain) could say woof...
(Captain) and company look puzzledly at the mage.
He ignores their curious gazes and turns straight to Cerberus.
Mage: I can't believe you're really out... How did you get past the seal?
Mage: Never mind that. I can figure out the details later.
Coco: No way! Does this mean the seal's undone? Woof!
Mimi: Wh-what do we do? Are we gonna have to fight it out? Woof!
Mage: Quiet. Who gave you permission to speak?
Mage: Don't tell me you're itching for another full-body shave.
Mimi: No, anything but that! Woof!
Mage: I command you to return to my side, Cerberus.
I'm sorry, I didn't hear you.
Cerberus: I said no.
Unable to believe how Cerberus is responding...
The mage is rendered speechless.
Cerberus Threefold!: Scene 2
Cerberus's former master, Kokabiel, through possession of the mage, promises to use the Cerberuses of Reason and Power to regain full control over the hellhound. (Captain) hopes to prevent that from happening by becoming the master of the other two Cerberuses as well, and takes the plunge into Pandemonium.
Mage: Th-this cannot be. It should not be possible for you to refuse my orders as your master. The subjugation bond is absolute...
Cerberus: Unfortunately for you, our current master is (Captain) here.
Cerberus: Meaning there's no reason for us to have to listen to a thing you say.
Cerberus takes this chance to cuddle up to (Captain).
Mage: Your current master?
Mage: You've renewed the subjugation bond, haven't you?
Cerberus: Mm-hm, that makes you our former master. Get it?
Vyrn: Wait, Puppy Girl. Whaddya mean this guy's your former master?
Vyrn: This is the mage you sent off somewhere.
Cerberus: Yes, but the one in control of that body right now is Kokabiel, my former master.
Cerberus: The poor mage must've had his consciousness taken over. I mean, I did send him to Pandemonium after all.
Vyrn: Geez. I'm surprised the guy survived a trip to that place.
Cerberus: Hehe. I knew he'd be fine.
Cerberus: Anyhoo, former Master... Or should I say, Kokabiel... I have just one question.
Cerberus: Can I take the fact that you're possessing a mortal to mean that your own body is still locked behind the seal?
Mage: Quite the rude little mutt, aren't you...
Mage: But I'll allow it, for you've been of great service to me.
Mage: You are correct, Cerberus of Instinct. The seal remains intact.
Mage: But it is only a matter of time for it to be undone.
Mage: Thanks to the sudden appearance of this mortal in Pandemonium.
Mage: It's all thanks to you that I can be here right now, Cerberus of Instinct.
Mimi: Wait, you knew? Woof.
Mage: I commend you for freeing me, but I cannot offer the same praise for your renewal of the bond.
Kokabiel turns to (Captain).
Mage: I didn't want to do this...
Mage: But if I've lost control of Cerberus, then I must reactivate my bond with her.
Cerberus: You lay a hand on (Captain), and you're gonna be in for a world of pain.
Mage: Very well. I'll take my leave for now.
Coco: Aw, Kokabiel's gone soft. Woof.
Mimi: What are you plotting? Woof.
Mage: There are two ways for me to reclaim my bond with the Cerberus of Instinct.
Mage: The first is to reinstate the bond after killing its current master.
Mage: The second is to have the Cerberuses of Power and Reason kill and absorb you, the Cerberus of Instinct.
Cerberus: Oh no...
Mage: I prefer to avoid fighting wherever I can. I'm not fond of something so barbaric and unproductive.
Mage: That's why I'm going to leave the fighting to you Cerberuses instead.
Mage: The other two are still under my control after all.
Coco: But they're sealed away too! Woof!
Mage: Releasing their seal is going to be a cinch once I'm fully resurrected.
Mage: Haha, you're going to regret casting me off as your master.
With those words, a magic circle emerges once more.
The mage possessed by Kokabiel vanishes with the circle.
Vyrn: What are we gonna do! That creep plans on offin' either (Captain) or Puppy Girl!
Coco: I'm not ready to be pushing up daisies! Woof!
Mimi: You've gotta think of something, (Captain)! It's every master's duty to protect their pets! Woof!
Vyrn: Why's she so obsessed with you anyway, Puppy Girl?
Vyrn: Are you that powerful?
Cerberus: She probably needs me to continue on with her experiments.
Cerberus: She's trying to use Astrals and archangels as fodder to create stronger primal beasts.
Lyria: Wh-why is she doing something so horrible?
Cerberus: Kokabiel is an archangel responsible for the research behind primal beast creation.
Cerberus: But she never actually produced any noteworthy results—
Coco: What a loser! Woof!
Mimi: A total beanbrain! Woof!
Cerberus: And so she wants to teach a lesson to everyone who ever looked down on her.
Cerberus: She's made it her life's goal to show everyone just how incredible she is.
Cerberus: And so Kokabiel really doubled down on the idea of making a powerful primal beast.
Cerberus: So much so that she decided to become Pandemonium's warden.
Mimi: The creep began throwing captured archangels and Astrals together to create primal beasts. Woof.
Coco: We were forced to help. Woof.
Mimi: We hated it but had to follow along, no thanks to the subjugation bond. Woof.
Cerberus: When the awful things we were doing came to light, we were captured along with Kokabiel and sealed in Pandemonium.
Coco: That's also when we were considered to be far too dangerous and split into three: instinct, power, and reason. Woof.
Lyria: Kokabiel mentioned she still has control over the Cerberuses of Reason and Power...
Cerberus: Mm-hm, there's no change to their subjugation bonds.
Cerberus: So they remain obedient to her.
Cerberus: If either one of them manages to defeat and absorb me, my bond with (Captain) will be null.
Cerberus: Meaning (Captain) and I can never truly be together as long as Kokabiel's around.
Vyrn: You seem pretty lackadaisical about it. You have a plan in mind?
Cerberus: Uh-huh, there's only one thing to do.
Cerberus: It's to go to Pandemonium together and have (Captain) form a bond with the Cerberuses of Power and Reason!
Cerberus: Then Kokabiel will be powerless.
Mimi: She's a total pushover without us to back her up. Woof.
Coco: Maybe we can even reseal her there. Woof.
Cerberus: Pandemonium might seem like a scary place, but with me around, there's nothing to be afraid of.
Cerberus: So please, (Captain). Won't you come with me to Pandemonium?
- I dunno about this...
Cerberus: Great! We'll show you the way and be your bodyguards!
Cerberus: All in a day's work for a pet!Choose: I dunno about this...
Cerberus: Oh, it'll be fine. Trust in Cerberus, (Captain).
Cerberus: As your loyal pets, we promise to keep you safe.
Cerberus: There's nothing to worry about, (Captain).Continue 1
The captain nods with a wry smile.
Coco: Problem is there's no guarantee our reason and power versions will agree to the change in master. Woof.
Mimi: Especially the Cerberus of Reason. She might actually try to reason things out. Woof.
Coco: Won't have to worry about that with the Cerberus of Power, thankfully. Woof.
Cerberus: It'll be fine.
Cerberus: I mean, just look at how drawn I am to (Captain).
Cerberus: The other versions of me will find (Captain) just as charming.
Cerberus flashes a confident smile.
The captain responds with a nervous laugh.
Cerberus Threefold!: Scene 3
By the time the crew arrives at Pandemonium, Kokabiel has undone the seal on herself and sics the Cerberuses of Reason and Power on the crew. As much as they'd rather not, they are forced to obey Kokabiel because of the subjugation bond.
The crew sets out to stop Kokabiel from carrying out her plan.
And for the captain to bond with the Cerberuses of power and reason.
Vyrn: What's wrong, Lyria? Something troublin' ya?
Lyria: It feels like I'm being stared at in every direction...
Coco: We've got some nasty prisoners sealed on this floor of Pandemonium. Woof.
Mimi: That explains what Lyria's feeling. Woof.
Cerberus: Their resent can also take the form of terrifying ghosts that haunt us...
Lyria: Eek! Th-there are ghosts here?
Lyria: Um... Is it okay if we hold hands, (Captain)?
The captain grips Lyria's hand, bringing her some relief.
Cerberus: Just kidding. I didn't see a single ghost in all the time I was here.
Cerberus: Oh, that's the room we're looking for.
Cerberus stops in her tracks before the large door.
Cerberus: Now for authentication...
Coco: It opened... Woof.
Mimi: It really did... Woof.
Seeing how serious Cerberus is, the others take care to be vigilant.
Cerberus: Let's go inside first. We won't get anywhere by just standing here.
The crew enters the room, ready to engage in battle at a moment's notice.
Inside, they find three women, along with a familiar-looking mage collapsed on the ground.
Two of the women look exactly like Cerberus.
Cerberus of Power: Ooh, we have a guest.
Cerberus of Reason: ...
???: It's you...
Coco: The seal's gone! We were too late! Woof!
Mimi: Power and Reason are free too! Woof!
Cerberus: What a surprise... I would've thought it'd take more time than this...
Cerberus: This calls for a change of plans, (Captain).
Cerberus of Reason: (Captain)?
Cerberus of Reason: What do you mean, Cerberus of Instinct? Kokabiel is the one we follow—
Kokabiel: That's Master Kokabiel to you.
Kokabiel smacks the Cerberus of Reason hard.
Vyrn: Whoa! What's the big idea?
Kokabiel: I'm showing a worthless tool its place.
Kokabiel: I will not tolerate any disrespect from a tool.
Cerberus of Reason: Forgive me, Master.
Cerberus of Reason: But if you could please explain why I—
Kokabiel: You deserve no explanation.
Cerberus of Reason: But...
The Cerberus of Reason tries to reason with Kokabiel.
Which only agitates her, inciting her to smack the Cerberus of Reason once more.
Kokabiel: Don't make me repeat myself. Understood?
Cerberus of Reason: Yes...
Kokabiel: Any good tool knows to follow orders.
Cerberus of Power: Tch... As if you'd have been able to do anything without our power.
Kokabiel: You sound like you need some disciplining.
Cerberus of Power: Forgive me, Master...
Kokabiel: Hm, the Cerberus of Power is openly hostile to me...
Kokabiel: While the Cerberus of Reason has a rebuke for everything I say...
Kokabiel: A worthless tool becoming infinitely more worthless after being split into three.
Kokabiel: I'll have to merge you all back into one somehow.
Kokabiel turns her attention to (Captain) and company.
Kokabiel: Cerberuses of Power and Reason, I command you.
Kokabiel: Eliminate the Cerberus of Instinct and its master.
Kokabiel: And bring the others to me once you've overpowered them.
Kokabiel: They'll make for fine specimens.
Cerberus of Reason: Understood...
Cerberus of Power: Sorry, but we have our orders...
The Cerberuses of Power and Reason bare their fangs at the crew.
Vyrn: Yikes! What do we do?
Cerberus: We'll just have to fight back.
Cerberus: The subjugation bond is absolute, so they have to obey their orders no matter what.
Vyrn: Are you really gonna be okay? If we lose...
Cerberus: Nah, it'll be fine.
Lyria: Um, I hope you're right...
Cerberus: Oh, I'm definitely stronger than those two.
Cerberus: Coco, Mimi, it's been a long time, but we're going all out today.
Coco: You sure? Didn't you want us to hold back to not scare the crew? Woof.
Cerberus: The situation's changed. Besides, a good pet has to protect its master.
Cerberus: And there's not a chance in hell I'm going back to serving Kokabiel!
Mimi: My thoughts exactly. Woof.
Coco: No holding back then! Woof!
Mimi: (Captain) and the others are gonna see for themselves just how strong we are! Woof!
Cerberus: Haha! Instinct is not to be underestimated!
Cerberus Threefold!: Scene 4
With the battle ended, the opposing Cerberuses are absorbed by the Cerberus of Instinct. The fully-powered Cerberus seals Kokabiel in Pandemonium once more and saves the captive mage. (Captain) walks away the proud master of a complete and wholesome Cerberus.
The crew defeats the hostile Cerberuses.
They turn into rays of light and are absorbed by the Cerberus of Instinct.
Cerberus: Three Cerberuses in one! I'm back, baby!
Coco: I can feel the power! Woof!
Mimi: (Captain)'s the only one who can stop us now! Woof!
Lyria: So this is your true strength... It's incredible...
Choose: You sound surprised, Lyria...
- You sound surprised, Lyria...
- Gimme your paws!
Lyria: She's so powerful, it's almost terrifying...
Coco: You can say that again, Lyria! (Captain)'s kinda wimpy in comparison! Woof!
Mimi: Yeah, (Captain) can't even sense our power—just what you'd expect from a filthy skydweller! Woof!
Cerberus: Haha! All right, (Captain)—time to give you a taste of my true strength!Choose: Gimme your paws!
Cerberus & Co.: Woof!
With a soft growl, Cerberus puts both hands on (Captain)'s.
Coco: What'd you ask us to do that for? Woof!
Mimi: Stop teasing us! Woof!
Cerberus: Aren't I a good doggy, (Captain)? I hope you'll reward me by petting me lots and lots!Continue 1
Kokabiel: I-impossible... How could this possibly happen!
Kokabiel: The Cerberus of Instinct coupled with a bunch of trifling skydwellers!
Kokabiel: The likes of you could never best the other two Cerberuses!
Cerberus: Just goes to show how much stronger we are.
Coco: The Cerberuses of Power and Reason were hardly motivated. Woof.
Mimi: They attacked us out of obligation, not because they wanted to. Woof.
Cerberus: I bet they were hoping to lose and be absorbed by me to be free of your control.
Coco: Smart doggies. Woof.
Mimi: It's crazy how much better (Captain) is than Kokabiel. Woof.
Kokabiel: I refuse to accept this! I'm meant for greater things!
Cerberus: Aw. Too bad for you.
Cerberus goes up to Kokabiel, a triumphant smirk on her lips.
Cerberus: No matter how much you beg, I'm never gonna forgive you.
Cerberus: You deserve payback for laying a hand on (Captain).
Kokabiel: S-stay away!
Cerberus: Coco, Mimi, let's finish the job.
Coco & Mimi: On it! Woof!
Chains of light spring forth from Coco and Mimi and wrap around Kokabiel's body.
Kokabiel: Wh-what is this!
Cerberus: It's only right that anyone caught attempting a prison break is locked back up... Am I right?
Coco: It's a watchdog's job! Woof!
Mimi: Did you forget? Woof!
Kokabiel: S-stop! Cerberus, I command you!
Cerberus: Huh? But why?
Kokabiel: Ngh... I am your master—
Cerberus: Don't you mean former master?
Cerberus: Oh, before the final goodbye, there's something I wanted to tell you.
Mimi: You're a total loser! Woof!
Coco: Suck it, loser! Woof!
Cerberus: Oof, took the words right out of my mouth.
How dare you make a mockery of me!
Kokabiel: Why does everyone treat me like a failure...
Kokabiel: I won't have it! I'm far superior to all of you!
Kokabiel: And I'll do whatever it takes to prove it!
Kokabiel: Just you wai—
Cerberus: Time's over! Say hello to your new home in the seal!
The chains of light turn into a magic circle that engulfs Kokabiel.
Cerberus: Resealing complete. What say we get out of this hellhole already, (Captain)?
Mimi: Might as well wipe out any evidence of something gone foul while we're at it. Woof.
Coco: And let's not forget the guy we sent here. Woof.
Lyria: Ah! I almost forgot about him!
Vyrn: Hey, you okay, bud?
(Captain) and company go to check on the mage.
After leaving Pandemonium, the crew takes the mage to a safe place for refuge.
Then they use the opportunity for a short reprieve.
Vyrn: Phew... I'm beat.
Lyria: Ahaha... I'm a bit tired myself.
Vyrn: Look at Puppy Girl though...
The two direct their attention to Cerberus.
Cerberus: Mm, that's real nice, (Captain)... Can you do my tail a bit more?
Coco: I-I hate this! But it feels incredible! Woof!
Mimi: No fair! You know we can't refuse a good brushing! Woof!
Cerberus: Hey, (Captain), can you take us for a walk once you're done with the brushing?
Cerberus excitedly yelps with every stroke of (Captain)'s brush.
Vyrn: She is one happy puppy...
Choose: It's done.
- It's done.
Cerberus: Thank you (Captain). Now to go for a stroll—
A magic circle suddenly manifests and wraps itself around Cerberus.
The white light shooting out from it coats the environment in an alabaster hue.
The crew involuntarily shut their eyes at the intensity of the light.
Once it subsides, they open up their eyes again to find three Cerberuses before them.
Coco: Huh? Why are we split up again? Woof.
Mimi: I thought we absorbed the Cerberuses of Power and Reason! Woof!
Cerberus of Power: Did you forget that the Astrals gave us each free will when they split us up?
Cerberus of Reason: Meaning even when we're one, each of us still has a distinct and separate consciousness.
Cerberus of Power: Which is why we're able to split up when we feel like it.
Vyrn: Why did the Astrals do such a thing to begin with? Aren't you tougher as a single doggy?
Cerberus of Reason: It was likely a safety mechanism designed out of fear of our combined might.
Cerberus of Reason: As things currently stand, we can only realize our true strength...
Cerberus of Reason: When the three of us are merged, or if (Captain) commands it.
Cerberus of Power: Another possibility is that the Astrals wanted to use us as three separate pawns...
Cerberus of Power: Whatever the case, it's something we'll probably never get a conclusive answer to.
Mimi: So why are you split up right now? Woof.
Cerberus of Reason: You see, the Cerberus of Instinct was getting all the love and attention from (Captain).
Cerberus of Reason: The Cerberus of Power and I just couldn't allow that.
Cerberus of Power: (Captain) is our master too.
Cerberus of Power: It's only fair that we get to partake in the pleasures of that in equal measure.
Coco: You don't split up for such a boneheaded reason! Woof!
Cerberus of Reason: It's not boneheaded in the least!
Cerberus of Power: Yeah, it's really important to us.
Vyrn: Well... Whatever makes you happy, Puppy Girl.
Cerberus of Reason: C'mon, (Captain). Play with us too.
Cerberus of Power: Don't tell us you only have love for the Cerberus of Instinct, (Captain)...
Cerberus of Power: If you actually feel that way, I might have to pretend your hand's a chew toy...
Choose: I'm kind of occupied at the moment...
- I'm kind of occupied at the moment...
- Sure, come on over.
Cerberus: Can't you see (Captain)'s busy showering me with love and attention?Choose: Sure, come on over.
Cerberus: Nuh-uh, (Captain). It's my turn to have you pet me like there's no tomorrow.Continue 2
Cerberus: Besides, you can always play with them later.
Coco: H-how did things get like this? Woof.
Mimi: Don't ask me. Woof...
Vyrn: C'mon, (Captain), I'm sure you've got enough love to go around for all of 'em at the same time.
Cerberus of Reason: You know, that's a really good point.
Cerberus of Reason: We're all your pets, (Captain).
Cerberus of Power: Yeah, and I'd rather not cause trouble for our nice, new master.
Cerberus: Okay then, no playing favorites.
Cerberus: Show us that you love us all equally...
The hellhound trifecta are full of smiles as they latch onto (Captain)'s body.
The captain is more than happy to frolic with them.
