Happy Birthday Cutscenes

1

Happy birthday.
Today is a special day, isn't it? Well then you ought to stop by us for a visit.
Lord Riviera, in particular, would like to wish you a happy birthday. You wouldn't want to disappoint him, would you?
And Lord Mukuta says he'll let you play with his paws. You've left quite an impression on those guys, you know.

2

Your birthday has rolled around once again... Well then, let's head to my room at once. Lord Rivera and the others are waiting.
Heh heh heh! You should be pleased! This year, Lord Vapaus has given you permission to play with his paw pads!
As far as I know, Lord Vapaus has never let anyone touch his paw pads before...
Congratulations. You have been rewarded for a full year of hard work!

3

The time has come! It is your birthday and we shall celebrate!
Please follow me to my quarters where Lord Rivera and the others await...
Hm? Oh, my apologies. I suppose I was getting a little ahead of myself. I was surprised to learn this, you see.
It would seem that for this year's birthday gift, you shall get to play with Lord Aselia's paw pads and tummy!
It's wonderful! It truly is... We've been watching you this past year and your effort has not gone unnoticed.
Please keep it up!

4

Happy birthday. What do you say we head to my quarters?
Hahaha, I'd like to ask for your careful attention. Lady Rivera and the others would like you to act as their pillow today.
There's no need to be nervous. All that you need to do is lie on your side and delight in your time together.
You'll be filled with true satisfaction, a feeling to reward all your efforts and dispel your frustrations.
That's excellent, (Captain). May this serve to help you through the next year.

Happy New Year Cutscenes

Happy New Year.
Have you seen a... hand warmer? They're a mystical object from a distant country, I've heard.
According to rumors, it warms up right in your palm with just a gentle squeeze. And in any weather!
Heh... I'd love to lay eyes on one. That kind of magic is fascinating indeed.

2

Happy New Year, (Captain). I've done it! I've obtained a heating pad!
Its warmth will penetrate even the coldest of hearts... Heh! I can't wait to experience it!
Hm? Why haven't I used it yet, you ask?
Because Lord Rivera is curled up on it right now, of course! I wouldn't dream of letting my legs intrude on his space!

3

Dante: Hm... Yet another challenge to overcome in my training...
Oh, (Captain)! Happy New Year. May the upcoming year together be full of blessings.
I know! Why don't you join us for a game? Lord Rivera and the others are playing Pin the Tail on the Donkey with me. But as you can see...

(Captain) looks over to find Lord Rivera and the other cats rubbing against the drawing on the wall, occasionally pawing at the picture.

Dante: How can one properly attach an appendage in such a state as this? Perhaps that answer is the key to discovering inner freedom!
Without a doubt... I, Dante, shall show you how to master this metaphorical game!

4

Dante is curled up on top of his bed.

Oh, if it isn't (Captain). You have a puzzled expression on your face.
Are you familiar with how cats sometimes curl up into balls?
Lord Rivera and the others expertly make their bodies round and then sleep in that position.
I'm attempting it myself now... It puts one's heart at ease and brings a feeling of peace quite unlike anything else.
It seems that Lord Rivera and the others particularly enjoy curling up into balls when there's a heater around.
Perfect timing. Would you like to try it out together, (Captain)?

Valentine's Day Cutscenes

1

So Valentine's Day is here...
Hm? You've brought chocolate? Indeed, I thank you for your kindness.
However... I'm afraid this is bad for the health of Lord Rivera and the others. Which means I shall have to consume it alone...
Oh, what shall I do? Is this conflict in my heart yet another trial I must overcome?

2

Chocolate, you say? Hrm... It is that time of year again... The annual challenge...
I'd like to give some to Lord Rivera and the others, but I cannot. It's bad for their health... But I cannot eat it by myself, either!
Nonetheless, I must not let your kindness go to waste!
What should I do? What in the skies should I do?
Ngaaah!

3

The time has come again... To face the trial known as chocolat, where the flavors of sweet gratitude and bitter conflict clash!
Chocolate!
Looking back, it has plagued me every year... To indulge in the snack all alone, as Lord Rivera and the others are unable to consume it.
But I have finally found a solution! I won't shy away anymore. Bring the chocolate to me...
What? Not chocolate, but a chocolate-flavored snack? Made of ingredients that even Lord Rivera and the others can partake?
...
How liberating!

4

Ooh! More chocolate-flavored snacks this year...
I wouldn't expect any less from you, (Captain). Your fearless thinking has paved you a path through this trial by chocolate.
I'll make it my duty to pass this on to Lord Rivera and the others.
Hm? Me? Of course I'll have some. After Lord Rivera and the others are through, that is.
I plan to savor them while reading. I really must thank you.

Heheh... In return for your steadfast dedication, I have chosen a most appropriate gift.
Hairballs. Bequeathed by Lord Rivera and company.
Is it not a most exquisite honor? I once crafted a scarf from these. May you too find some use in them.

2

Hehehe... You should be happy, (Captain). Lord Mukuta chose your gift this year.
Now then, please accept this mouse as a reward for your hard work lately. Heh! Even I'm a little jealous.
Honored, aren't you? You're free to use it however you like. I hope it helps you in your travels!

3

Ha-ha... I've been waiting for you, (Captain). I have a gift for you again this year.
But to think Lord Vapaus would be so generous... In anticipation of this day, he prepared an item that even I have not had the privilege of using.
So please accept this cardboard box. The large hole on the side is a window that you are free to use.
You must feel so honored! I know there is danger waiting on our journey ahead, but I know this box will help lift your spirits.

4

Ah, it's you, (Captain). I have this year's gift for you here in my hands.
Hmm... I'm actually a bit nervous. But in fact, the elegant Lady Aselia unfailingly gives this as a present every year.
Please take this bag, and handle it with care. Inside is...
Matatabby.
Hah, it seems that even you, (Captain), are speechless before it. I suppose that should come as no surprise.
This is the ultimate honor, isn't it? The path ahead of you is long. So when you're feeling down, don't hesitate to have a pinch of matatabby.

1

Today is Halloween? So that's why my friends are wearing costumes.
But I live by my own rules. I have no interest in following everyone else.
A wet blanket, you say? No, I just do things my way. That's all!

2

Dante: Ah, Halloween... Last year I was called a killjoy, but regardless, I feel no desire to wear a disguise.
It goes against my code. Sorry, but let me live freely.
Rivera: Meooow!
Dante: What? I... I suppose that's true... I am indeed free to change the rules as I see fit...
Very well, Lord Rivera! I shall don a disguise next year! One that embodies the very spirit of freedom!

3

Agh... A costume... What do I do?
I cannot figure this out on my own...
But I promised Lord Rivera last year I'd stretch my creativity for a costume of true self expression!
I need to think. Think!
But one who is not free cannot fully unleash themselves...
An evil spirit. Or an animal. Or a famous person. Or perhaps... Oh, it's no use! If only I can think of a something you don't see every year...

4

Dante: At last I've found it! A truly unconventional costume in which all of my abilities are manifest.
Do I appear the same as normal? I suppose I do, and that's the very point.
Costumes are meant to disguise one person as another. So the most real and innovative costume of all is surely one in which a person looks indistinguishable from his uncostumed state.
This is the best answer that I've devised—a masterful and original costume unbound by vulgar custom.
Rivera: Mrrrow.
Dante: Hm? What's most important about the holiday is to enjoy oneself and amuse others?
T-that may be true... I've been so focused on my costume that the festivities have all but escaped my mind!
My efforts are still sorely lacking... Next year will be the one in which I show you a truly impressive costume!

Happy Holidays Cutscenes

1

What is the meaning of this? What kind of person would do such a thing?
We prepared a holiday feast for Lady Rivera and the others, but it's all been eaten! We must apprehend the monster responsible!
Ah... Excuse me, Lady Rivera, but you have a little cream on your mouth. Let me get that for you.

2

Nrgh... What an outrage! What a folly!
Last year, someone ate the feast I prepared for Lord Rivera...
And I've been foiled this year as well! The gifts have all been stolen!
(Captain), we must apprehend the culprit!
Hm? Lord Rivera? What's that cushion in your mouth?
Oh my! You retrieved it from the thief already? You work quickly! I should take notes!

3

(Captain)... What should I do?
A few moments ago, one of the younger members of our crew gave me a special homemade cake...
But I cannot eat it! How could I possibly devour a cake shaped exactly like Lord Rivera's exquisite face?
But I can't allow my fellow crew member's efforts and good intentions go to waste! I couldn't bear seeing a frown on that precious face! What must I do to pass this torturous trial?
Aghhh!

4

Agh! How terrible!
I went to decorate the tree to make the younger crew members happy...
But look under the tree. Someone's pulled down all my ornaments!
(Captain), help me search for the parties responsible! I'm sure that they're somewhere around here...
The scent of tree is coming from... If it isn't Lord Rivera and the others!
I can't believe... They're volunteering to serve as replacement ornaments? Aah, how merciful they are!

Abandoned Kitten[edit]

A young girl taking care of a stray cat in an abandoned lot grows worried of the coming winter. Thankfully, the crew agrees to take in the cat and look after it until the girl comes of age.



Dante not in crew

The crew completes a quest deep in the mountains of Amalthea...
They get lost on the way back. But thankfully, a man named Dante kindly takes the crew in to rest up at his abode.
Inside are an extraordinary number of cats. Some are walking around, some are lying on the floor...
Lyria: Aah! They're so cute! So fluffy! Come here, little kitty!
Dante: Stop that at once! Lord Rivera needs his rest.
Lyria: Huh? Lord... Rivera?
Dante: Yes, the venerable lord your hand sought to disturb! It is most improper to interrupt one's rest!
Vyrn: Hey, this guy's kinda weird...
He once belonged to the Crew of Enforcers, but left to pursue a free spirit like that of a cat and has since lived in the mountains for decades.
Just then, one of the cats taking a liking to Lyria suddenly calls out.
Rivera: Meowww!
Dante: What! Do you truly mean to say that, Lord Rivera?
Lyria: Huh? What's going on?
Dante: Indeed, I cannot truly say I have embraced a life of freedom...
Dante: In a way, I suppose my life is already being dictated to me. I am tied to this place after all.
Vyrn: Hey, dude! What are you muttering about there?
Dante: ...
Dante: I have a favor to ask of you. Would you be willing to accept a humble man such as myself into your crew?
Lyria: Woah! That came out of nowhere...
Dante: Lord Rivera told me... He said that he wishes for me to see the world and to fly off into the sky.
And so, Dante, lover of freedom and cats, joins the crew.
Months later...
Rivera: Meow!
Dante: Another fine, sunny day...
Dante: Lord Rivera refused breakfast and asked for some kibble from the streets.
Dante: I ran out to fetch some and returned to find him eating his usual breakfast.
Dante: This is freedom. Once again I realize my own immaturity.
Vyrn: Haha! Okay, Mukuta, now try and catch my tail!
Dante: Another fine, sunny day...
Dante: Lord Mukuta has been training with Vyrn.
Dante: We all have to be able to protect ourselves in order to live our lives as we please.
Dante: This is freedom. Once again I realize my own immaturity.
Lyria: Oh, Vapaus, do you want me to pet your backside? Hehe! Coochie, coochie coo!
Dante: Another fine, sunny day...
Dante: Lord Vapaus seems to have taken an interest in Lyria.
Dante: Indeed... I sense an unbound power behind her clear, bright eyes.
Dante: This is freedom. Once again I realize my own immaturity.
The crew stops at a certain island in hopes of taking a much needed break.
Inside a cabin within the anchored Grandcypher, Dante writes in his diary.
Dante: In short, this is another form of training. I expected no less from Lord Aselia.
Dante: Hmm... I'll leave it at that. I've learned another valuable lesson.
Rivera: Meow!
Dante: Oh, it's Lord Rivera! Are you hungry? I will begin preparations at once...
Kitten: Mew, mew!
Dante: Hm? Who might this be?
When the kitten following behind Rivera spots Dante, it walks right over and nuzzles him.
Dante: Well, aren't you a charmer! You're a regular social butterfly, aren't you?
Rivera: Meow!
Kitten: Mew, mew!
Dante: I see. Then I shall prepare some warm milk. I hope it suits your tastes.
Girl: Oh, there you are! Give me back my Mewmew! She's my best friend!
Dante: Hm? Are you from the city? I'm afraid I don't know what you're talking about.
Vyrn: Whew! We finally caught up! Now calm down, little lady!
Lyria: Wow! This is Mewmew? So she was with Dante!
Dante: Vyrn. Lyria. What's all this fuss about?
Vyrn: Oh, uh, well... Apparently that kitten is a stray, and this little girl here has been taking care of her in a vacant lot.
Vyrn: But then she suddenly disappeared this morning, and we were asked to look for her.
Lyria: So, while we were looking for her, we started talking about you...
Girl: I'm sorry... I was just so worried about Mewmew...
Dante: Hmm. 'Tis nothing. I'm sure any one of us would react the same in a similar situation.
Dante: But... Caring for a kitten in a vacant lot... It's no wonder Lord Rivera was worried.
Vyrn: Huh? So Rivera brought her here? But what's there to worry about?
Dante: Winter will soon arrive on this island. Such weather is hard on the young ones. Is it not possible to care for her at home?
Lyria: It seems unlikely. She said it's forbidden in her neighborhood...
Dante: Forbidden? That's so cruel...
Girl: Nn... Sniff... That's it. I'm gonna run away from home! I want to live with Mewmew!
Lyria: What? Run away from home? Y-you can't do that!
Girl: But I have to! Say, mister, you're on my side, right? Tell me where I can find a place to live with Mewmew!
Dante: ...
Girl: Mister?
Dante: No.
Girl: What? Wh-why would you say that? Do you think the neighborhood people are right?
Vyrn: Settle down, kiddo! Geez, that's kinda unexpected coming from you, Dante. Usually you're all about living freely!
Dante: All the more reason to ask. Young lady, do you hate your parents?
Girl: No...
Dante: I didn't think so. But if you run away from home, you will feel guilty. And you will carry that guilt for the rest of your life.
Dante: That is a burden, not freedom. Living freely doesn't mean giving in to impulse.
Dante: Trust me...
Vyrn: Hmm... Sounds kinda complicated, but I think I understand what you mean.
Girl: Nnn... But what about Mewmew? When winter comes, what'll happen to her?
Lyria: Uhhh... Well...
Rivera: Meow!
Dante: Lord Rivera? Hmm, I see... So that was your plan.
Vyrn: What is it?
Dante: Lord Rivera has suggested that we take the kitten with us until the girl comes of age.
Dante: Assuming the little one agrees to it...
Kitten: Mew, mew!
Girl: Wow... Mewmew looks happy!
Girl: Thank you, mister! I'll miss her, but I'm happier knowing she's safe with you!
Dante: No need to thank me. I shall look after Lady Mew until we meet agai—
Girl: What? Her name isn't Lady Mew! It's Mewmew!
Dante: Hmm... Fine. I will look after... Lady... Mewmew.
Girl: Okay! But just until I'm old enough to take care of her myself!
A few months after adopting the kitten...
Dante: Hmm... I've learned another valuable lesson. Now then, time to prepare our meal.
Mewmew: Mew, mew!
Dante: Hello, Lady Mewmew. I see that your teeth have not grown in fully... Perhaps it is too difficult for you to eat with the others...
Mewmew: Mew!
Dante: Oh my! You're so free-spirited for your age!
Vyrn: Don't you think this is getting out of hand? She's getting more and more demanding! And the number of cats keeps going up!
Lyria: That's true, but what's the harm? They're so cute!
Dante: L-lady Mewmew! Lady Afaka! There are no nutrients to be gained from gnawing on my staff! Now kindly imbibe this special milk!
Following the incident with Mewmew, the cats begin to bring in others, and soon Dante is overwhelmed with new lords and ladies.
Nevertheless, in pursuit of free-spiritedness, he continues to diligently look after the cats.

Blue Past, Feline Future[edit]

Lecia is elated to reunite with the Dante she remembers from her youth. Although their personal beliefs have since changed, they rejoice nonetheless.



One day during a flight on the Grandcypher, Dante receives a visitor at his quarters.
This visitor summons up the courage to ask Dante about his past.
Lecia: Ah! I knew it! You're from the Crew of Enforcers...
Dante: Yes, I am a former enforcer. It was a quite a long time ago.
Lecia: I'm sorry... I should have treated you with the respect you deserve, but I didn't realize your status until now.
Dante: Enough. You need not salute me. Didn't (Captain) explain everything to you?
Dante: I met Lord Rivera and left the Enforcers in pursuit of a free spirit... In other words, you and I hold different beliefs.
Lecia: Yeah, I heard about that, but the Master of Purple Flame deserves respect!
Dante: Oh? You talk like an old-time enforcer, but...
Dante: Where did you come by that knowledge? That nickname is much older than you are.
Lecia: Oh, well, you see... When I was young, I would accompany my dad on his inspections, and one time I visited the training center.
Lecia: We were escorted by a fan of yours who told us all about your title and achievements. I remember Dad was really impressed.
Dante: I see... So you're Blue's daughter.
Lecia: That's right. I never would have guessed that the mage I saw at the training center would turn out to be you...
Lecia: Heehee! That really takes me back! I'm sorry I didn't come talk to you sooner. I was a little surprised.
Dante: Heh. I don't fault you for failing to realize it. After all, the nature of my magic has changed since then.
Rivera: Meow!
Dante: Lord Rivera, what is the matter? I see... Then I shall begin meal preparations at once.
Lecia: Umm... Hahaha, I don't think it's just your magic that's changed.
Lecia: Hey, so if you don't mind, could you tell me some stories from your pa—
Lecia: ...!
Dante: Monsters... Heh. Perfect timing.
Monsters: Groooar!
Dante: Lecia, was it? What's past is past. I'll show you how strong I am now!

Blue Past, Feline Future: Scene 2[edit]

Dante tells of Lecia's father, otherwise known as the Blue Knight. Despite only conversing with the knight once, Dante feels ambivalent about him.



Dante: Haaah!
Monster: Graagh!
As the party fights off monster after monster, Lecia is captivated by Dante's unique magic.
Lecia: I should have expected no less! It's so innovative... So this is freedom...
Dante: You outdid yourself back there as well. I see you've molded Blue's swordsmanship into something of your own.
Lecia: Huh? Y-you think so?
Dante: Yes. That said, Blue was far above my station. I never did get the chance to see his power up close.
Dante: In fact, we only spoke once. It was the day I quit the Enforcers, as a matter of fact...
Dante: ...
Lecia: Umm, Dante? Wh-what's wrong? Did my dad say something rude to you?
Dante: Do you wish to know of the deep connection between Blue and myself?
Lecia: Wh... What connection?
Monster: Grraah!
Dante: Hm? I thought we wiped them all out...
Lecia: What? Oh no! The monster's attacking Mewmew!
Mewmew: Meeewww!
Monster: Graaar!
Dante: What? Damn, I let my guard down!
Dante: Nnrrgh! Lady Mewmeeew!
Monster: Groaar!
Lecia: No way... Did it just take control of the magic's trajectory? Is... is that even possible?
Mewmew: Mew, mew!
Dante: Lady Mewmew... Come! Jump into my arms if you please!
Dante: Come at me, monsters! I will not let anyone impede our freedom!

Blue Past, Feline Future: Scene 3[edit]

Due to issues related to cats, Dante begins to harbor feelings of both hostility and respect for the Blue Knight. Dante summons up his determination for a possible confrontation with the Blue Knight.



The party defeats all the monsters. After catching his breath, Dante explains his connection with the Blue Knight.
Dante: The day I left the Enforcers... Your father happened to be at the Fourth Fleet Headquarters, and he heard about my leave.
Dante: As I gathered my belongings, he asked me why I was leaving.
Lecia: I see... Even when swamped with work, he must've wanted to stop a promising enforcer like you from leaving.
Dante: I'm not sure. It seemed to me that he was simply curious. I suppose only he knows for sure.
Dante: Anyway, I told him that I had met Lord Rivera and learned the value of freedom...
Dante: I was young and naive. At the time, I deeply respected Blue, and I wanted him to understand how I felt.
Lecia: So what did Dad say?
Dante: Well... He listened to me in silence...
Dante: And when I was done, he looked me in the eye and whispered...
Dante: Why not adopt a dog?
Lecia: What?
Dante: I'll never forgive that Blue Knight! Laughing at freedom is one thing, but to compare Lord Rivera to a dog is blasphemy!
Dante: Naturally I challenged him to a duel, but the captain ran in and stopped us.
Lecia: Well, uh... I don't think Dad meant it. He was probably trying to make small talk.
Dante: I apologize for upsetting you. You're his daughter after all. I shouldn't have told you.
Dante: But someday I will settle the score with Blue.
Dante: I probably stand no chance of defeating him... but I must try. And next time, I won't let anyone stop us. Not even you.
Lecia: Uhhh... O-okay. I won't stop you...
Dante: Heh, you are a commendable enforcer and a fine daughter. Blue is a lucky man.
Lecia is stunned to learn of Dante's heroic resolve.
A duel between freedom and order... Would such a day ever come to pass? Only the sky knows for certain.
