At the Knickknack Shack, the crew meets Claudia, who's dressed as a maid. She wants someone found but at first has reservations because (Captain) is a child. However, her weakness for pretty girls causes her to change her tune when she sees Lyria.
One day the crew reports to the Knickknack Shack after completing a mission.
Sierokarte: Well met, everyone! Perfect timing!
Sierokarte: There's actually someone here I'd like to introduce to you guys.
Katalina: What do you mean?
Sierokarte: Oh, she was saying something about wanting help finding someone...
Sierokarte: But I almost forgot! Those spare parts you guys ordered for your airship arrived!
Sierokarte: They should be around here somewhere... But wait a second. I think I accidentally left them back in the storeroom.
Lyria: I'll go get them! It wouldn't do to keep other people waiting.
Sierokarte: Sorry about that. They should be in a small brown wooden box.
Lyria: Got it! Let's go, Vyrn!
Vyrn: What? You mean I have to go too?
Lyria: Of course! And hurry up!
Vyrn: Fine... But don't run! You'll trip!
Sierokarte: Now about that request, Claudia...
Sierokarte: Um... Claudia?
Katalina: Huh? I think she might be sleeping.
Claudia: Wha! Um... Where am I?
Sierokarte: You okay, Claudia? The skyfarers I was telling you about are here.
Claudia: Oh... Sorry. I was getting bored, so I had a little catnap.
Katalina: You call that a catnap? It looked like you were completely asleep to me, even though you were standing with your eyes open.
Claudia: No... I assure you that it was just a nap. No true maid would ever sleep on the job.
Claudia: It was just a nap. Definitely a nap. No doubt about it.
Claudia: Um... I fear I haven't introduced myself yet.
Claudia: My name is Claudia. I work as a maid at a castle.
Claudia: But I recently left the castle with another maid to search for the runaway lady of the castle.
Claudia: Unfortunately that silly girl got lost in no time, so now I'm looking for people to help me find both her and the lady.
Sierokarte: And that means teaming up with someone like (Captain), who travels around a lot, would be your best option!
Claudia: Say... are you the captain of this crew?
Katalina: No... (Captain) here is.
Claudia: This kid? I don't mean to be rude, but you can't be serious. If this is meant to be a joke, it's not funny.
Choose: You sound rude whether you mean it or not.
- You sound rude whether you mean it or not.
- But most people laugh...
Claudia: So you are the captain? In that case you're quite a reckless little group of kids.Choose: But most people laugh...
Claudia: I guess I'm going to have to withdraw my offer. I'm not the sort of fool who laughs at jokes that aren't funny.Continue 1
Katalina: Still, I'm surprised at how rude you've been up until now. You don't seem like you're very serious about finding people to help you.
Lyria: Siero! Are these the spare parts for our airship?
Vyrn: It took forever to find them thanks to Lyria checking out literally everything...
Claudia: Please permit me just one question. Is that pretty blue-haired girl a member of your crew as well?
Katalina: She is. But why do you ask?
Claudia: You should have told me earlier!
Claudia: I've changed my mind. (Captain), would you let me travel with you after all?
Katalina: Excuse me? But you didn't want to have anything to do with us a moment ago. What are you planning?
Claudia: Nothing. Absolutely nothing to be at all ashamed of.
Claudia: Please accept my humblest apologies for my thoughtless words before.
Lyria: What? So these aren't the spare parts?
Sierokarte: Sorry... I guess I wasn't clear enough.
Lyria: Oh dear...
Claudia: But don't get the wrong idea. It's not like I have any ulterior motives related to that beautiful young woman or anything like that... Hee-hee...
Katalina: Um... So what was that weird little laugh just now all about?
Sierokarte: Well... Claudia does have slightly unusual tastes.
Claudia: Now don't go giving them the wrong idea, Sierokarte. My tastes are not at all improper.
Claudia: People have been fascinated with beautiful women since ancient times...
Claudia: So my tastes are not at all unusual. You could even call them boring.
Choose: You seem sort of predatory...
- You seem sort of predatory...
- Welcome to the group.
Claudia: Please don't worry. I've been able to get along fine in spite of my tastes for a long time now.
Claudia: I am perfectly able to control myself. You need not worry yourself over me... Hee-hee.
Katalina: Are you sure we can trust anyone who giggles like that, Captain?Choose: Welcome to the group.
Claudia: Thank you, (Captain).
Claudia: You can leave the cleaning and washing to me, especially when it comes to more delicate items of clothing... Hee-hee.
Katalina: Are you sure we can trust anyone who giggles like that, Captain?
Vyrn: What do you mean? She's already volunteered to do the washing, so she must be all right!
Lyria: Yeah! Cleaning and washing... You seem really dependable, Claudia!Continue 2
Claudia: You honor me with your kind words.
In spite of some lingering reservations, the traveling maid Claudia joins the crew.
Katalina: There's something I need to tell you, Lyria. That woman... Don't let your guard down around her, okay?
Lyria: Huh? But why?
Katalina: Oh, there's nothing to worry about yet. Let's just hope I'm wrong.
(Captain) and company accept a mission to clean a mansion but are shocked when they see how dilapidated it is. As they struggle to cope, the unfazed Claudia gets right to work, but she is soon interrupted by monsters living in the mansion.
(Captain) and company accept a mission from the Knickknack Shack to thoroughly clean a mansion.
Claudia tells them that she'll handle the cleaning, and they head to the mansion, completely unaware of the scale of the mission.
Vyrn: Oh man... Are these ruins really supposed to be a mansion?
Lyria: Gross... It looks like there could be something living in there, (Captain).
Claudia: Not to worry, Lyria. I, Claudia, am at your side.
Claudia: Please feel free to hold me if you're feeling scared.
Lyria: Um... That's okay. (Captain)'s here too...
Claudia: I see... But please don't hesitate if you change your mind.
Claudia: Well... I dare say that a place this dirty will really benefit from a little cleaning!
Vyrn: Hmm... This place looks like it needs not only cleaning but some repairs too.
Claudia: Not a problem. I'm used to this sort of thing.
Claudia: A maid must always ensure the comfort of her master no matter how difficult the situation.
Claudia: It might be temporary, but our client trusted us with this place, and that means we have a responsibility to—
Vyrn: Whoa! Looks like there are monsters in this mansion!
Claudia: Very well. A worthy opponent to warm us up.
Claudia: Monsters are just more dirt to be swept out of this mansion after all.
Mansion Keeper: Scene 2
Thanks to Claudia, the mansion is gradually restored to its former glory. But before the crew can enjoy a sense of accomplishment, a group of thugs shows up. When they say they've been living in the empty mansion, Claudia decides to punish them for their disregard of the previous residents.
Claudia gradually restores the mansion to its former glory.
Claudia: Hmm... This floor is still tarnished.
Claudia: Vyrn, please dust the upper part of those pillars. (Captain), please polish those candlestands.
Vyrn: Hey! This place is pretty clean already. Isn't it good enough?
Claudia: Certainly not. We can't say the job is complete as long as even a speck of dust remains.
Lyria: Um... What should I do?
Claudia: You relax here in that beautiful way of yours and provide moral support. My efficiency will improve tenfold with you rooting for me.
Claudia: Hmm... This pillar has a scratch in it. It needs repairing.
Vyrn: Come on! No one's going to notice a little scratch like that!
Claudia: It might go unnoticed, but it still needs repairing.
Claudia: And have you finished dusting as I asked?
Claudia: (Captain), please polish the doorknobs once you're done with those candlestands.
Lyria: Um... Is there anything I can do now?
Claudia: Of course! I've prepared some tea for you...
Claudia: So please sit here and enjoy it. And if you could occasionally honor me with some praise, I would be most happy.
Vyrn: Now wait just a minute! How is that fair?
Claudia: This is the best solution when you consider optimum efficiency. Haven't you heard of choosing the right person for the right place?
Thug 1: Whoa! What's this? That run-down old building looks like a palace now!
Thug 2: So you guys cleaned this place? Whoever you are, I'm impressed.
Vyrn: Who are you guys?
Thug 1: Heh... We're the ones who live here.
Thug 2: Ha-ha! This place was empty, so we naturally moved in.
Thug 1: That's right... This is our mansion, so you can all get lost now.
Vyrn: Who do you think you are? We were asked to clean this place!
Lyria: Exactly! Siero told us the request is from the owner of this mansion.
Thug 1: Ha-ha! Tell it to someone who cares, sister! If you want us to leave, you'll have to make us!
Claudia: Excuse me...
Thug 2: Whoa! Where'd this chick come from?
Claudia: You're tracking dirt into the mansion. I'm sorry for the trouble, but would you mind going outside and knocking the dirt off your shoes?
Thug 1: You're worried about a little dirt? This place was a dump!
Claudia: Excuse me?
Thug 1: Eek!
Claudia: Yes... This mansion was ignored for a long time and wasn't in the best condition...
Claudia: But no matter how it may have changed, it holds memories of those who lived here.
Claudia: And the owner put me in charge of this mansion...
Claudia: So I can't let anyone trample over those precious memories with filthy shoes.
Thug 1: Ugh... W-what are you gonna do about it, woman?
Claudia: Prepare yourselves... They don't call me Iron Fist for nothing!
Mansion Keeper: Scene 3
Claudia defeats the thugs, surprising the crew with her strength. She says she grew up in a rough area and often had to fight thugs. With the problem out of the way, the crew gets back to cleaning the mansion.
Thug: Damn... I can't move... Ugh...
Claudia: Whew... Their kind seems to sprout up no matter where you go.
Claudia: I wonder if their stupidity is universal throughout the skydoms.
Vyrn: Hey, Claudia! Who are you exactly? You seem awfully used to fighting.
Claudia: Oh, I'm nobody. Just an ordinary housemaid.
Claudia: But I didn't grow up in the safest of neighborhoods.
Claudia: I had to deal with people like them all the time when I was younger.
Lyria: Really? So that's why you're so strong!
Claudia: Well, I was infamous enough to earn myself the nickname Iron Fist...
Claudia: But I'm positively tame compared to Dorothy. She was the one who was truly feared where I grew up.
Claudia: More importantly, however, we still have a mansion to finish cleaning.
Claudia: Now let's clean every nook and cranny until this place is spotless! We're almost done!
Vyrn: Give me a break! I'm so tired...
Thus (Captain) and company finish restoring the mansion to its former glory.
The client is thrilled by their painstaking efforts.
