On arriving at the Knickknack Shack, the party met a woman named Claudia dressed in a maid outfit, who needed someone found for her. However, after seeing that the (Captain), leader of the order, was still a child, she refused to give them the mission. But after seeing Lyria, she changed her mind and decided to give them the quest after all. Saying she had a weakness for pretty women like Lyria, the slightly strange maid Claudia joined the party.
Having completed their quest, that day the party returned to the Knickknack Shack to report in.
Sierokarte: Well met, everyone! Perfect timing!
Sierokarte: Actually, there was a person here earlier that I wanted to introduce to you guys.
Katalina: Hm? How about that introduction...?
Sierokarte: Well... you wanted help finding someone, didn't you?
Sierokarte: I've got it! I think I remember where those spare parts for your airship are...
Sierokarte: What...? Sorry! I almost forgot, but I think they're back in the store room...
Lyria: Ok, I'll go get them! It wouldn't do to keep other people waiting...
Sierokarte: Sorry about that, thank you. They should be in a small brown wooden box.
Lyria: Got it! Let's go! Vyrn!
Vyrn: What the... hey! We're going too?
Lyria: Hey, look! Vyrn, quick!
Vyrn: Fine... Hey, don't run! You'll fall!
Sierokarte: Ok Claudia... about that quest...
Sierokarte: Um... Claudia?
Katalina: Hm? Perhaps this is... hey, you're not asleep are you...?
Claudia: Waugh?! Where am I...?
Sierokarte: Um... Claudia? The skyfarers I was telling you about just before have just arrived...
Claudia: Ah... sorry. Excuse me. It was quiet, so I had a little nap.
Katalina: That was a nap? Standing up with your eyes wide open...?
Claudia: It was a nap. Maids can't take naps when they're on duty.
Claudia: It was a nap. It was definitely a nap. No doubt about it.
Claudia: Um... oh yes, I haven't introduced myself yet.
Claudia: My name is Claudia. I work as a maid at a castle.
Claudia: I was on a journey to find and retrieve the master of the castle.
Claudia: But despite my determination to search, I soon became lost, and now I'm looking for people to help me search.
Sierokarte: So, what you mean is... teaming up with someone like (Captain) who travels around a lot would be the best idea...?
Claudia: Say... are you the leader of this sky order?
Katalina: No... I'm not the leader... (Captain) here is.
Claudia: This kid...? I don't mean to be rude, but you're kidding, right? If this is meant to be a joke, it's not funny.
Choose: You ARE being rude
- You ARE being rude
- It's not a joke
Claudia: Really? In that case, you're a plucky little group of kids.Choose: It's not a joke
Claudia: I'm afraid I'm going to have to withdraw my offer. I'm not some fool who's going to stand here and pretend to laugh at some unfunny joke.Continue 1
Katalina: But... you were being quite impolite yourself just before. It's not the best attitude to have if you're looking for people to help you...
Lyria: Siero! Are these the right spare parts for the airship?
Vyrn: Jeez... Lyria is into everything, so it'll take ages to find stuff...
Claudia: Say... there's just one thing I'd like to ask... that pretty blue-haired girl, is she a member of your sky order?
Katalina: Hm? Yes, why?
Claudia: Why didn't you tell me that earlier?!
Claudia: I've changed my mind. (Captain), would you let me travel with you after all?
Katalina: Wha?! You didn't want to have anything to do with us a moment ago. What're you planning?
Claudia: Hmm? Nothing. Absolutely nothing.
Claudia: Please accept my most humble apologies for my thoughtless words before.
Lyria: What?! Isn't this it? The spare parts...
Sierokarte: Sorry, I don't really know...
Lyria: Aw, man...
Claudia: I mean... I'm not at all... at all interested in that beautiful young woman or anything like that... hehehe.
Katalina: Um... so... what was that weird little laugh just now all about?
Sierokarte: Oh, yes... Claudia has slightly unusual tastes.
Claudia: Now that's not exactly right, Miss Sierokarte. My tastes are not at all improper.
Claudia: A fascination with beautiful women is something that has existed in humans since ancient times...
Claudia: So my preference is in fact not at all unusual.
Choose: This feels kinda dangerous
- This feels kinda dangerous
- Welcome to the group
Claudia: Please don't worry. It won't make things complicated, it's something I've dealt with for a long time now...
Claudia: I am perfectly able to control myself. You need not worry yourself over me.
Katalina: Uh, well... even if we choose to believe her, is it really ok?Choose: Welcome to the group
Claudia: Thank you. (Captain).
Claudia: Please leave cleaning and the washing of any delicate items of clothing to me. Ehehehe...
Katalina: Uh, well... even if we choose to believe her, is it really ok?
Vyrn: Huh? Well, she's gone and said she'll do the washing even... so I don't have a problem with it!
Lyria: Yeah! Cleaning and washing... she seems very promising!Continue 2
Claudia: Hehe... I'll take that as a compliment.
And so, despite their reservations, the maid Claudia joined the party on their journey.
Katalina: Lyria... there's something I want to tell you, that woman... don't let your guard down around her, ok?
Lyria: Huh? What...?
Katalina: Uh... well if they're just groundless fears...
The party accepted a mission from the Knickknack Shack to thoroughly clean a mansion. However, they are at a loss for words when they realize how dilapidated the mansion is. Claudia, on the other hand, enjoys cleaning and happily gets to work on cleaning and repairing the place. That's when they are attacked by monsters which now occupied the mansion.
(Captain) and company accept a mission from the Knickknack Shack to thoroughly clean a mansion.
Claudia tells the party that she will handle the cleaning and they head to the mansion. However...
Vyrn: Oh man... This is more like a ruins than a mansion...
Lyria: Ohh... It looks like there could be something living in there... (Captain)...
Claudia: Hehe... Not to worry, Miss Lyria. I, Claudia, am at your side.
Claudia: Please feel free to embrace me if you're feeling anxious...
Lyria: Oh, um... That's okay. (Captain)'s here too...
Claudia: I see... Please let me know if you change your mind.
Claudia: Well... A place this dirty will really be worth cleaning!
Vyrn: Hmm... Not just cleaning, this place will need some repairs too...
Claudia: Not a problem. I'm used to this sort of thing.
Claudia: A maid must always maintain a comfortable environment for her master.
Claudia: It may be temporary, but the clients trusted us with this place. I will take responsibility and...
Vyrn: Wha?! There are monsters in this mansion...?
Claudia: Hmph... Very well. A worthy opponent.
Claudia: I'll sweep away any dirt or monster that infests this mansion!
Mansion Keeper: Scene 2
With Claudia's efforts, the ruins of the mansion gradually returns to its former glory. The party feels a sense of accomplishment as they look at the squeaky clean mansion. Then, a group of scoundrels make their appearance and reveals that they have been living in the empty mansion without permission. Upon hearing this, Claudia brings down punishment to the thugs that trample over the precious memories of the previous residents.
With Claudia's efforts, she brings new life back into the run-down mansion.
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 now, isn't it good enough?
Claudia: Certainly not. We can't say the job is complete with even a speck of dust left behind...
Lyria: Umm... What should I do?
Claudia: Miss Lyria, please elegantly relax here and provide moral support. My efficiency will improve tenfold with you rooting for me.
Claudia: Hm... This pillar has a scratch in it... It needs repairing.
Vyrn: Come on, no one's gonna notice a little scratch like that!
Claudia: It may go unnoticed, but it still needs repairing.
Claudia: Anyway, have you finished dusting the place?
Claudia: (Captain), please polish the doorknobs once you're done with those candlestands.
Lyria: U-Um! Is there anything I can do...?
Claudia: For you, Miss Lyria... I've prepared some tea.
Claudia: So please sit here and enjoy it... And if you could occasionally honor me with some praise, I would be most happy...
Vyrn: Hey wait a minute! How is this fair?!
Claudia: This is the best solution when you consider optimum efficiency. Have you heard of the saying, the right person for the right place...?
Scoundrel 1: Whoa?! What's this? That run-down old building looks like a palace now!
Scoundrel 2: Huh, you guys cleaned this place? Whoever you are, I'm impressed.
Vyrn: Wha? Who are you guys?
Scoundrel 1: Heheh... We're the ones who live here.
Scoundrel 2: Hahaha! Well, this place was empty so we took it over.
Scoundrel 1: That's right... Well, this is our mansion so you can all get lost now.
Vyrn: What the?! Don't give us that bull! We were asked to clean this place!
Lyria: Exactly! Siero told us the request is from the owners of this mansion...
Scoundrel 1: Hahaha! Why should we care? If you wanna kick us out, you can go ahead and try...
Claudia: Excuse me...
Scoundrel 2: Whoa! Where'd this woman come from...
Claudia: You're tracking dirt into the mansion. I'm sorry for the trouble, but would you mind going outside and cleaning your shoes?
Scoundrel 1: Who cares? This place was a dump anyway!
Scoundrel 1: Eek!
Claudia: Yes... This mansion was left alone for a long time and wasn't in the best condition...
Claudia: However... No matter how it may have changed, it holds memories of those who lived here.
Claudia: With the owner's request, I was put in charge of taking care of this mansion...
Claudia: I can't let anyone trample over those precious memories with filthy shoes.
Scoundrel 1: Ugh... W-What are you gonna do about it, woman?!
Claudia: Prepare yourselves... A punch from the maid known as "Iron Fist" may sting a bit...!
Mansion Keeper: Scene 3
Claudia defeats the scoundrels, and the party can't help but be surprised by her strength. She explains that she was grew up in a lawless area and fighting scoundrels was a regular occurrence. After learning of her secret past, the party gets back to work on cleaning the mansion.
Scoundrel: Damn... I-I can't move... Ugh...
Claudia: Whew... My, 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? You seem awfully used to fighting...
Claudia: Oh, I'm nobody. Just an ordinary housemaid.
Claudia: It's just... 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!
Claudia: Hehe... Well, I was quite well known and earned myself the nickname of "Iron Fist"...
Claudia: But I'm actually the docile one compared to Dorothy. She was the one that was truly feared where I grew up...
Claudia: Oh, I just remembered we haven't finished cleaning the mansion yet.
Claudia: Now, let's clean every nook and cranny until this place is spotless! We're almost done!
Vyrn: Have some mercy! I'm so tired...
And so, (Captain) and company finish turning the mansion back into pristine condition.
The client is thrilled by how carefully the crew cleaned the entire mansion.
