Danua: (Captain)... Happy... birth... day...
Pet?

(Captain) tries to pet Danua, but Hansel and Gretel block the attempt.

Gretel: Hold it! You misinterpreted her intent a little bit there!

Gretel: Okay then! Let's get started!

Danua: Zzz... Zzz...
Hansel: Nnn... Nnn...
Gretel: Mhh... Mhh...

(Captain) opens the door and finds Danua, Gretel, and Hansel lying near the table.
Next to them is a cake. As they waited for (Captain) to return home, sleep got the better of all of them.

Danua: Hmm? Wel... come ba... ck.
Hap... py bi... rth... day...
Pet... me... Pet... me...

(Captain) gently caresses Danua's head with a kind stroke.

Danua: One...
Hansel: She's telling you go and use one now. What's it going to be, (Captain)?

After a few moments' thought, (Captain) hands Danua the coupon that says "Cheer Me On."

Danua: Cheer... On!
Hurray... hurray... (Captain)!
Hug...
Hansel: The hug was a bonus. Now you'll be okay no matter what happens.
Gretel: No slacking after all this encouragement! Keep pushing on all year!

Danua:Aaaah...
Hansel:Say aaah, (Captain).
Gretel:Danua said she wanted to make them herself this time!

Gretel: (She's squirming! Get over there and give her a present already!)

Misunderstood Puppeteer[edit]

(Captain) and company mistook Danua for the criminal. It turned out that Danua was pursuing the true culprit, a monster disguised as a little girl. Thanks to her, they solved the case. Danua knew that (Captain) and company were skyfarers, and she joined their ranks with a certain goal.



At Sierokarte’s summons, our heroes turned up at a certain city.
On the streets, everyone was talking about the serial criminal case that was seeing more and more incidents in this area lately.
Vyrn: What the? Does the town seem weirdly hectic to you?
Draph Man: Hey! Have you heard? There’s rumors of a rogue criminal lurking around here lately!
Erune Youth: Wow, really? Sounds scary. I wonder what kind of guy this criminal is...
Draph Man: Yeah... They say the criminal has been slashing at people with some kind of sharp blade. You know, like the one that girl’s holding...
???: ...?!
Lyria: Aaah!
Vyrn: Whoa!!! That was close! Are you okay, Lyria?
Lyria: I’m okay. We just bumped into each other, that’s all...
Sierokarte: Hello, everyone!
Vyrn: Whoa! This time it’s Siero?!
Sierokarte: Hello again! It’s your beloved idol, Siero!
Vyrn: All right! Fine! So what do you want this time?
Sierokarte: Well then, I’ll get right to it. I think you’ve all figured it out by now, but I want you to capture that rogue criminal everyone’s talking about!
Vyrn: I knew it... I figured as much! What should we do? Wait, never mind. I already know what you’re gonna say.
Lyria: Exactly! The way things are going, the townspeople won’t be able to live in peace! Let’s all work together to catch the criminal!
Hot on the criminal’s trail, our heroes were headed to the town outskirts when a scream tore through the air--
Standing there were two girls: on one side, an injured girl, and on the other, a suspicious Draph girl covered in the other girl’s blood.
Girl: Help!
???: ...?!
Vyrn: You’re... the girl from earlier...?!
???: Oh, uh...
???: Hmm... Yes, I see...
???: Danua says, “We’re in big trouble. ” Gretel, we’re in trouble.
Gretel: YOU MORON! I can tell that much for myself, thank you very much! Hansel! How are we getting out of this one?
Hansel: How, you ask? Well, how should I know? All we can do is make a run for it.
Vyrn: HOLD IT!!! We’re not letting you out of our sights!
Little Girl: Waah... sob...
Lyria: H-Hey... are you okay?! Come with me...
Vyrn: You evil criminal! How could you attack a little girl?!
Danua: No, we...!
Hansel: Hmm... Oh, I see...
Hansel: Danua says, “No, we’re not the culprit. ” Gretel, we’re not the culprit.
Gretel: No, we sure aren’t! But they’ve got the wrong idea, so we gotta force our way outta here!
Just as Danua and her minions tried to escape, the other girl suddenly attacked Lyria.
Lyria: AAAH!
Danua: Look ou...!
Danua shielded Lyria and took the blow. Our heroes were completely baffled by this turn of events.
Vyrn: What the... Wh-what the hell is going on?!?!
Little Girl: Hahahahahaha! You people are all a bunch of idiots! You’re so stupid, I can’t take it anymore!
Little Girl: Hahaha! Don’t worry! I’ll be nice and kill you all together!
Monster: Grrooaaa!
Vyrn: Wha...?! Did... did she just turn into a monster?!
Gretel: Tch! She’s revealed her true form! You people better stay out of our way! Hansel!
Hansel: Danua! I’m gonna unleash your magic power. Think you can handle it?
Danua: Yea...!
Vyrn: We’d better help them out! Let’s go, (Captain)!
Magic power began to gather on Danua’s fingertips. In an instant, threads of magic power shot from her fingers, controlling the puppets as they slashed at the monster with graceful swordplay.
Danua had rescued our heroes from peril. It turned out that the true culprit behind the string of attacks was in fact a monster disguised as a little girl.
Lyria: This is bad! Danua’s hurt! She needs first aid, now!
Danua: I’m f...!
Hansel: What’s that...? Oh, I see...
Hansel: Danua says, “I’m fine. It’s just a scratch. ”
Gretel: Tch! Didn’t anyone ever teach you people not to judge a book by its cover?!
Vyrn: But... But you guys totally look like criminals...
Gretel: HEY! How dare you say that! You little punk!
Vyrn: Grrrr! You’re calling ME little? Have you looked in a mirror?!
Danua: I want to kn...
Hansel: Hmm... Oh, I see...
Hansel: Danua wants to know, “Are you guys skyfarers?”
Vyrn: Huh? We are, but... What of it?
Danua: Let m...
Hansel: Hmm... Oh, I see...
Hansel: Danua says, “Let me ride your airship. ”
Vyrn: Come again?! Wh-what do we do, (Captain)?
  1. This must be fate
  2. We need to treat her wounds

Choose: This must be fate
Vyrn: Well... They might be kinda weird, but I guess they don’t seem all that bad. If you’re cool with it, then I’m cool with it, (Captain)!

Choose: We need to treat her wounds
Vyrn: For now... Let’s just get back to the airship and get her some first aid!
Continue 1
Gretel: Quit your grumbling and just take us there already!
Danua: I’m...
Hansel: Yeah...? Okay... Got it.
Hansel: Danua says, “I’m in your care, you weird lizard. ”
Vyrn: Hey! You added that last part! Knock it off!
Lyria: Welcome aboard! It’s nice to meet you, Danua... and your cute dolls, too!
And so, our heroes welcomed the Spirit Medium Danua and her bizarre puppets into the Order. But just what was their goal...?

The Least I Can Do[edit]

Danua wishes to summon the spirits of her murdered family and place their souls into dolls. In order to grant her wish, (Captain) and company travel through a monster-infested forest to the witch’s home.



Danua finally opens up to (Captain) and company during their journey. And, in doing so, reveals her true purpose...
To place her murdered family’s souls into the dolls... is Danua’s wish.
(Captain) and company head to the forest to visit a witch who can grant Danua’s wish.
Vyrn: Hey. I hope this one will be a real witch! I’m sick of all the fake magic going on!
Danua: No mis...
Hansel: Uh huh... Uh huh...
Hansel: She says… “There’s no mistake. This is the real deal. ”By the way, Gretel, is this the right path?
Gretel: Hahaha! It’s fine! Totally fine! Just leave it to me! I can just tell, Hansel! Hansel!
Hansel: You can just tell...? That’s not reassuring... You’re never right whenever you say that. Gretel.
Gretel: Excuse me?! You’re the one that gets lost all the time! Hansel!
Vyrn: Hey, this isn’t the time to be fighting! What are you going to do if you get lost...?
Danua: Stone...
Hansel: Uh huh... Uh huh...
Hansel: She says… “I dropped some pebbles along the way to mark our way back. ”
Lyria: Wow! Great job, Danua!
Danua: Pat...
Hansel: Oh... Okay...
Hansel: Danua says… “I want you to do the ritual as a reward. ” Go ahead, (Captain).
As directed by Hansel, (Captain) pats Danua on the head.
Danua closes her eyes and appears to concentrate as she purrs with glee.
Danua: Mon...
Hansel: What was that...? Uh huh...
Hansel: She says… “I sense monsters nearby. ” Here they come. Get ready.

The Least I Can Do: Scene 2[edit]

(Captain)’s party arrive at a house made of candy deep inside the forest. A woman who calls herself a student of the witch welcomes the party in. Attracted by the smell of candy, monsters appear and a battle ensues.



The party moves on through the forest, but they get completely lost because the scenery looks the same wherever they go.
Vyrn: I’m hungry... I want to eat apples...
Lyria: Ugh... I can’t walk another step...
Danua: Light...
Hansel: Uh huh... Hm...
Hansel: Danua says… “I see a light over there. ” Do you see it, Gretel?
Gretel: I see a building! Hansel! Hey! Let’s go to the light!
The party walks toward the light and smell a waft of sweetness coming from the house. It is a house made entirely of candy.
A roof made of chocolate bars is supported by walls of cake rolls. The windowpanes are made of candy.
Lyria: Wow...! I-It’s like a dream come true!
Vyrn: That looks good! Hey, can I eat this?
Gretel: Hey! Don’t just go and eat it. It might be poisoned!
Danua: Wait...
Hansel: Uh huh... Okay...
Hansel: She says… “Wait, someone’s coming. ”
???: Oh, my! What adorable little children! Guests for me?
Danua: Witch...
Hansel: Oh... Uh huh...
Hansel: She says… “Are you the witch of the forest?”
???: No. I am the student of the witch who lives in this forest.
Gretel: Perfect timing! Can you let us inside and meet the witch?
???: Um... She’s currently out in the forest, but you’re welcome to wait inside!
Vyrn: Thanks a bunch! Hm...?
Monster: Growl...!
Vyrn: Look! Some monsters came attracted to the smell! Damnit! The candy is mine!

The Least I Can Do: Scene 3[edit]

The witch tries to sacrifice (Captain) and company to summon her own family. Danua freed the binds on her friends and fights the monstrosity the witch has become.



The party enters the witch’s house as told by the student.
The party eats a grand feast prepared by the student while they wait for the witch to return.
Vyrn: Hey, lady. When is that witch coming back?
Witch’s Student: Well... I do believe she’ll return in a little bit...
Lyria: Yawn... I’m starting to feel sleepy...
Danua: Sleep...
Hansel: Uh huh... Uh huh...
Hansel: Danua says… “I’m starting to get sleepy, too. ”
Vyrn: Yawn... I can’t keep my eyes open... (Captain)...
Gretel: Hey! What did you do to Danua?! (Captain)! Snap out of it!
Witch’s Student: Hehehe... Yes, yes... Go ahead and sleep...
Hansel: We’re done for... There's no getting out of this one... Don’t you think so, Gretel?
Witch’s Student: Oh? My adorable little dolls. Sleep tight.
Gretel: Hey, Hansel! Now isn’t the time mmrm!
After a while, (Captain) and company wake up with their faces on the cold stone pavement.
They get up to look around, but it is dark and the air is damp around them. It seems that they are in some underground cathedral.
Vyrn: Mmrm... What is this place...? Hey! Someone tied us down… I can’t move!
Lyria: Ugh... (Captain)... It’s dark and scary... T-There aren’t any ghosts... are there?
Danua: Fee...
Hansel: Uh huh... Hm...
Hansel: Danua says… “I feel hazy. ” Gretel? Are you okay?
Gretel: Hansel! Never mind that! Do something about these ropes! Hey! She’s coming!
Witch: Hahaha... I am the witch of this hut. I’ll need you to stay still until my forbidden spell is complete.
Vyrn: Let us go! What are you gonna do with us?! Were you lying about being able to summon souls into a doll?
Witch: I’m sorry for... tricking you. But I didn’t lie about that. You will become my sacrificial dolls for summoning my family.
Lyria: Why would you do this...?
Witch: Wahahaha! You thought that forbidden spells which revive the dead wouldn’t have a price to pay?!
Witch: Sorry. I’m sure you’ll be able to see your family on the other side, Danua... Well, now... Buh-bye!
Danua: Cut...
In the next moment, Danua’s finger begins to emit light. Through her fingertips are astral threads made of her mana, which Danua uses to control Hansel and Gretel.
Hansel: Uh huh... Oh...
Hansel: Danua says… “The ropes have been cut already. ”
Gretel: Don’t just sit there. Let’s get her!
Witch: How unfortunate... I was going to kill you in your sleep to make it painless... But you leave me no choice... Graogh!
Suddenly, the witch’s body is split in two. With a puff of black smoke, a monstrosity appears from within.
Vyrn: Eeek! This is dangerous!
Lyria: She looks like she’s in pain... But we can’t lose! (Captain)! It's coming!

The Least I Can Do: Scene 4[edit]

Danua feels down for not being able to summon her family’s spirits. While (Captain) looks on, Danua is comforted by Lyria and Vyrn. With hesitation in her voice, she expresses thanks.



After defeating the wicked witch in the underground cathedral, the party goes out of the forest and returns to the airship.
Danua looks out to the sky with loneliness in her heart, wishing to meet her family again... Even if that means she must dabble with dark spells.
Vyrn: You okay? Danua... There’s always a next time. Right, Lyria?
Lyria: Yup! I’m sure that there’s a way to grant wishes somewhere out there in this world!
Danua: ...
Hansel: It might be better to leave her alone now.
Gretel: Look at (Captain). Just watching over her. That’s the right way to do it!
Vyrn: Um... We’re friends... so we’re willing to help at any time!
Lyria: Please don’t overwork yourself. You can tell us if you need help with anything. We’re friends, after all!
Danua: Eeu...
Hansel: Uh huh... Mm-hm...
Hansel: Danua says… “I have something I want to tell you. ”
Gretel: Whoa! What is it now?
Danua: Than...
Hansel: Uh huh... Uh huh...
Hansel: Danua wants to than? Gragh!
Gretel: Hansel! Shut up for a second!
Danua: T-Thank you... everyone...
Danua wrings out her voice the best she can to express thanks to her friends.
Though her emotional scars have not healed yet, Danua’s voice is returning little by little through the journey with her friends.

Tragic Night[edit]

The crew ask Hansel and Gretel about the fateful night Danua's family was murdered. After learning of the horrific happenings that night, the crew decides to search Danua's old home for any clues on the killer.



Danua continues her search for the man who'd slain her family, as well as the forbidden spell to channel their souls into handmade figurines.
While on her journey with (Captain) and company, tonight, like every other night, She comes for her usual bedtime routine.
Danua: Pat me on the head...?
As (Captain) gives her a head rub, Danua's breath grows slower and quiet until she falls asleep.
Lyria: Danua seems to have gotten pretty close to you.
Vyrn: Aww! She's getting some peaceful rest for sure!
After Danua falls asleep in (Captain)'s lap, (Captain) peers over to Hansel and Gretel.
Hansel: What's wrong, (Captain)? Have your legs gone numb?
Gretel: Ha ha ha! No need to stick around, you hear?
(Captain) shrugs, but suddenly turns a bit serious and begins to ask about the incident from Danua's past.
Gretel: Well, I suppose it was 'bout time we told you...
Hansel: You sure you wanna hear, (Captain)?
(Captain) and the others nod. So Hansel begins to tell the story of that loathsome night.
Danua: Hm... Hmmm... Hm? Waaah!
Danua's Brother: What's wrong, Danua? Had a bad dream?
Danua: N-no. It's nothing, but... Well... It's just...
Danua's Brother: Ah! I see. Scared to go to the bathroom alone?
Danua: I-I don't have to go! Besides, I can go by myself!
Danua's Brother: Wow! When I was your age, I was scared to go by myself.
Danua: Hmph! What a loser!
Danua's Brother: Well, since you're such a big girl, I'll give you a treat!
Danua: I don't need anything from you!
Danua's Brother: Oh? That's too bad...
Danua: B-but... if you insist... I wouldn't mind.
Danua's Brother: Really? How about a sleepyhead-rub? Hush... Hush... Hush... Hush...
Danua: Okay okay... Hush hush... Hush hush...
Danua's Brother: I hope you'll have sweet dreams tonight.
Danua: You too. Good night.
Danua's Brother: Haha... Good night, Danua.
The night grows darker as the siblings sleep soundly.
But later, they awake to a loud noise.
Danua's Brother: Hmm? What's that sound?
Danua: Brother...?
Danua's Brother: It's alright. Hansel and I will go and check, so you two stay here and wait.
Hansel: Gretel, look out for Danua.
Gretel: I gotcha! Goes without sayin'!
Danua: W-wait, brother... I'll go with you.
Seeing the fear in her eyes, her brother reluctantly allows her to come along.
Danua's Brother: Well alright. You stay right behind me.
Danua: Okay... I will.
The siblings stay close together as they follow the sound.
???: You... It's your fault... Your fault...
They see a man muttering to himself.
Danua's Brother: You...
Danua: B-brother?
Danua's Brother: Don't look!
Danua: Okay...
Her brother is shaking at the sight of their parents, lying on the floor in a sea of red.
Danua's Father: Stay back... you two...
Danua's Mother: Run... away...
???: Huh? Just some kids...
???: Hey. You kids 'fess up now, and I'll let you go.
Danua's Father: The basement... Get down there... Gahak...
Danua's Mother: Don't hurt... my children... please...
???: Fine.
???: But a family should always stay together... Don't you agree?
The mysterious man wobbles his way toward the siblings.
Danua: B-brother...
Gretel: Hey hey what'll you do? You're really gonna fight this guy?
Danua's Brother: Hansel! Gretel! Take good care of Danua!
Hansel: "Take good care"?
Danua's Brother: Get Danua away from here! Now!
Hansel: I gotcha... Let's go, Gretel.
Gretel: Hmph! Good grief!
Danua: B-brother? You can't...
???: I'll end this quickly and be sure to come find her after.
Danua's Brother: As if I'd let you...
Danua's brother knocks over the alcohol lamp on the table.
The flame from the lamp sets the tablecloth ablaze, pitting a wall of fire between the two siblings.
Danua: Brother! Brother!
Her brother turns at Danua's voice, and in the flickering flames she sees him beaming at her.
Danua's Brother: It's alright... I'll be there soon.
Hansel: Just... leave the rest to us.
Gretel: Remember, if you die, I'll kill ya!
Danua's Brother: Ha ha! That's a promise! Danua... Let's meet up again later.
???: Ha ha... Ha ha ha... It's alright. You'll see him soon.
Danua: Brother!
Hansel: Let's go, Gretel.
Gretel: Aye. Hansel.
Danua: Brother!
Gretel: Danua. We're sorry.
Danua: Waaah! No no no!
Danua: Brother! Papa! Mama!
Hansel and Gretel struggle as they take a wailing Danua away from the scene.
The three run down the road into the night, as the flames behind them light their path.
The young girl cries out for her family over and over—as long as her voice lasts, and even when it doesn't.
Until she loses both family and voice.
Before long, she begins dreaming of revenge against the one who stole her loved ones, as well as dreams of bringing them back.
Lyria: Oh my... What a terrible thing to happen.
Vyrn: Yeah... That's a tragic story.
Hansel: We did all we could to get her away from him then.
Gretel: But today, we'd never run from that guy.
Lyria: So, you haven't you been back to the house since?
Hansel: Aye. Considerin' her feelings and all.
Then, (Captain) suggests to Hansel and Gretel that they all go back to her old home and look for clues to find that person.
Gretel: Well... Danua might be strong enough to do it now.
Hansel: Aye, I'm all for it. Especially with (Captain) and everyone else around, Danua would feel much relieved.
Gretel: Alright! Let's leave first thing in the morning!
Hansel: We just might find something new.
Vyrn: Great! Sounds like a plan!
Lyria: Yep! Let's rest up for tomorrow!
The next morning, (Captain) and company talk to Danua about visiting her old home.
For a moment she seems hesitant, but soon her worry turns to determination and she agrees to move forward with the plan.

Tragic Night: Scene 2[edit]

The crew visits the ruins of Danua's old home and discovers a basement housing what appears to be a puppeteer workshop. Danua finds a familiar doll couple there, but is attacked by doll corpses from behind before she can greet them.



(Captain) and company go to visit Danua's childhood home.
With heavy hearts, the crew begins searching throughout the ruined remains.
Danua: ...
Hansel: Danua. No need to push yourself.
Gretel: Just have a seat and leave this to us!
Danua: Here...
Hansel: Hmm? Uh huh... She says that something's strange right here.
Gretel: Hey, (Captain)! Come search over here!
(Captain) and company carefully search the area Danua pointed at.
They feel a slight breeze coming from the ground and try removing one of the metal floor plates.
Danua: Below...
Hansel: Uh huh... Uh huh... She says that it's leading us below.
Gretel: Well looky here... We never knew about this place. Right, Hansel?
Hansel: Aye. Who'd have thought there was a hidden basement!
Vyrn: Gulp! Should we go?
They reach the the bottom of the stairs to find a large basement.
Danua: Here...
Hansel: Uh huh... Uh huh... She says this place looks like a puppeteer's worshop.
Gretel: Huh? Since when? A workshop?
Everyone searches the underground room, which curiously appears to be a well-tended puppeteer workshop.
Danua finds a pair of dolls, a man and a woman, in the very back of the workshop.
Danua: Papa... Mama...
Responding to her voice, the dolls' eyes suddenly light up.
Gretel: Hey Hansel! Look at this doll.
Hansel: Ah... It's...
Suddenly, the dolls lined up behind Danua begin to move.
Doll Corpse: Grrr...
Gretel: Oh no!
Hansel: Gretel!
Gretel: Hmph! Just hurry and reach Danua!
Hansel and Gretel, caught off guard, hurry to Danua. But it is too late.
Doll Corpse: Grrr!
Lyria: Watch out, Danua!
Vyrn: Good grief! (Captain)! Can you make it in time?
Doll Corpse: Rawwwrrr!
Danua: Papa? Mama?
The moment the doll corpse strikes Danua down...
A doll couple appears from behind her, furiously attacking the fiend.
Couple doll: ...
Danua: Huh?
With the dolls creating an opening, everyone hurries toward Danua.
Gretel: Let's go, Hansel!
Hansel: Leave it to me, Gretel!

Tragic Night: Scene 3[edit]

The crew clears out the doll corpses. Though unable to speak, the doll couple express their deep love for Danua through cuddling. (Captain) and company look on warmly at the touching family reunion.



After clearing out the doll corpses, the crew turns to face the doll couple once again.
Danua: Papa? Mama?
Papa and Mama: ...
The couple is unable to speak, so instead cuddle sweetly with Danua.
Hansel: Gretel, what's going on here?
Gretel: Who knows? But Danua looks so happy!
Hansel: Aye. It doesn't matter really, does it?
Danua: Hans... Gret...
Gretel: Hey! We're coming!
Hansel: Ah... We hear you.
Danua: We're all... together.
Vyrn: Heh heh! That's the first time I've seen Danua so pleased!
Lyria: Yep! I'm so glad we came, (Captain)!
(Captain) and company watch as Danua huddles shoulder to shoulder happily with her family.

Catharsis[edit]

The crew exchanges greetings with the doll couple they find in the puppeteer workshop under Danua's old home. The doll couple hands them a memo describing the forbidden magic used to channel souls into dolls. As they try to read through it, the room is suddenly filled with mist and a golem charges at them.



(Captain) and company visit the home where Danua grew up, but it is practically in ruins.
After finding their way underground, they discover a puppeteer's workshop and a curious set of dolls.
Vyrn: Hey, Lyria... Those two dolls are Danua's mom and dad, right?
Lyria: Yeah... Right, (Captain)?
At that moment, the doll couple make their way over to greet the crew.
The two dolls bow again and again in front of the group to show their appreciation.
Papa: ...
Vyrn: Hey... What are they saying?
Gretel: They're really grateful we've been lookin' out for Danua all this time.
Mama: ...
The dolls use gestures to express their gratitude to (Captain) and company.
Lyria: It's no problem. Danua has been helping us out a lot, actually!
Danua: (Captain)...
Hansel: Uh huh... Uh huh... Danua says she's only made it this far because of you.
Papa and Mama: ...
The parents begin waving and jumping excitedly to express their thanks.
Gretel: Ha ha ha! I think they got your point!
And so, Danua's parents and the crew finally have their meet-and-greet.
Finally, the crew asks the dolls about the workshop.
Papa and Mama: !
Gretel: Hmm? Just calm down and tell us!
The dolls seem frantic to explain, but it is no use. So they spread open a book on the table.
Gretel: I got it! I got it! They want us to read this journal!
Hansel: Then I'll read it.
Hansel begins reading notes that seem related to an experiment.
Hansel: "Regarding forbidden magic to channel human souls into dolls..."
Hansel: "... it can bring back souls that have already crossed the gate to the underworld."
Hansel: "In order to fuse the soul and the doll for all eternity, it would seem that a certain power is necessary...
Suddenly, a strange smoke begins to fill the underground room.
Papa and Mama: ...
Danua: Smoke...
Hansel: Uh huh... Uh huh... She says that this smoke is suspicious... Danua, try holding your breath.
Gretel: Hey! Stop dallying about and let's get out of here!
Everyone hurries toward the door to escape...
But a giant golem appears, blocking their path.
Golem: Gwaaarrr!
Vyrn: H-hey now... We're in some trouble!
Lyria: Yeah... My legs feel... so heavy...
Gretel: Hmph... Fleshy humans sure are a handful...
Danua: Nghh...
Hansel: We're out of time. Let's go, Gretel.
Gretel: I gotcha! Danua, we'll strike 'em hard and fast!

Catharsis: Scene 2[edit]

After getting a whiff of the mysterious smoke, the crew begins to fall asleep one by one. When they come to, a man calling himself a rogue puppeteer shows up, revealing himself to be the one who killed Danua's parents. The moment he tries to unleash the forbidden magic sealed within Danua's left arm, her dolls suddenly jump back to life to protect her. They work together to fight off the puppeteer.



After getting a whiff of the mysterious smoke, the crew begin to fall asleep one by one.
By the time they come to, they find themselves imprisoned.
Vyrn: What happened? How did we... When did we...
Danua: Ow...
Lyria: Just what was that? Danua, are you okay?
Danua: Lyria...
Danua, trapped along with the crew, has a worried look on her face.
???: I see... If you lose consciousness, you lose your connection to the doll...
Vyrn: What? Who was that just now?
A man with an eerie smile appears before them.
???: Hmmm? Didn't you come here looking for me?
Danua: Who...
???: Don't you remember? I'm the man who purged your parents and your brother.
Danua: !
Vyrn: Boy oh boy! Who d'ya think you are? Showing your face around here!
Rogue Puppeteer: Me? I'm a rogue puppeteer. I have no name.
Rogue Puppeteer: Now who are you? Well, I suppose it doesn't matter. You'll be dead anyway...
Rogue Puppeteer: So shall we have a little chat first?
And so, the man begins to tell a story.
Rogue Puppeteer: When I'd heard a rumor about a way to infuse human spirits into figurines, I went to visit a cetain puppeteer.
Rogue Puppeteer: But he wouldn't even see me... Said the magic was too risky to use...
Rogue Puppeteer: But there he was. So happy and surrounded by family...
Rogue Puppeteer: That's why... I had to show him. Show him how it feels to lose your loved ones.
Rogue Puppeteer: If I did that... then he'd finally understand how desperate I was!
Vyrn: You... You took away Danua's family for something so selfish?
Rogue Puppeteer: That's right. Is it so bad? People are driven by selfish desires!
Rogue Puppeteer: But the magic was nowhere to be found down here.
Rogue Puppeteer: Danua... It was sealed within your arm all along.
The man grabs Danua by her left arm.
Danua: Ow...
Rogue Puppeteer: With the astral threads sealed within this arm, I will channel souls into the dolls...
Lyria: Please stop! You're hurting her!
Rogue Puppeteer: Bwahaha... On top of that, I'm going to have to some wonderful new materials to play with.
Rogue Puppeteer: You will all serve as the perfect catalyst for completing the forbidden spell!
Bounds by constraints, the crew is unable to resist as the puppeteer lays them down on the pedestal imprinted with a summoning circle.
With a firm hold on Danua's arm, he begins to mutter the incantation.
Rogue Puppeteer: Now, it is time... Open the gate to the underworld!
When the puppeteer invokes the seals, a dark mist begins to seep from Danua's arm.
A vortex of dark mist quickly envelops them, from which a gate to another dimension appears.
Danua: Stop...
Rogue Puppeteer: Heh... Ha ha ha... Soon. Soon I will complete this spell!
Danua: S... Stop...
The astral threads are released from Danua's arm.
Danua: Stop!
At that very instant, the dolls connected to Danua's astral threads come back to life.
Hansel: Danua... Seems we're a bit late.
Papa: ...
The dolls destroy the bonds that restrained the crew.
Mama: ...
Gretel: Now, Danua! Let's turn this guy into doll stuffing!
Danua: I won't let you... have control anymore!
Rogue Puppeteer: You've outlived your usefulness!

Now meet your maker!

Go!
Golem: Gwaaarrr...
Danua: Here it comes... Papa. Mama.
Papa and Mama: Danu... a...
Danua: Please... Lend me a hand... Hansel... Gretel...
Hansel: Of course we will!
Gretel: Let's do it!
Danua: I'll... save... everyone!

Catharsis: Scene 3[edit]

After getting a whiff of the mysterious smoke, the crew begins to fall asleep one by one. When they come to, a man calling himself a rogue puppeteer shows up, revealing himself to be the one who killed Danua's parents. The moment he tries to unleash the forbidden magic sealed within Danua's left arm, her dolls suddenly jump back to life to protect her. They work together to fight off the puppeteer.



Rogue Puppeteer: I'm... not finished...
Despite being soundly defeated by (Captain) and company, the puppeteer grows ever hostile and resistant.
Grudge: Gwaaarrr...
Just then, a swarm of vengeful spirits appear at the gate to the underworld.
Rogue Puppeteer: What! It's...
Several spirits, who'd once been wronged by the puppeteer, grab him and drag him into the gate.
Rogue Puppeteer: No! Let go... Let go of me!
As the light glowing from Danua's left arm begins to dim, the ominous gate begins to close as well.
And thus, (Captain) and company make it through the crisis.
Danua: Everyone...
Vyrn: Hoo... Haa... Looks like... everybody's alright.
Danua: ... So glad.
Lyria: Right! Wait... Huh? Danua, did you speak just now?
Danua: Wait... huh?
The dolls gather around Danua.
Papa and Mama: Danu... a...
Danua: Mmm... Papa... Mama...
Danua: Pat me... on the head?
The parents hold Danua tight, gently stroking her hair as she sobs.
Hansel: Good for you, Danua.
Gretel: She's really outgrown them, wouldn't you say!
Vyrn: Heh heh! Well that settles that!
Lyria: Yeah! I'm so happy she found her parents!
And so, (Captain) and company look on at the touching family reunion.
But just then, the dark gate to the underworld suddenly reopens.
Rogue Puppeteer: Ahahaha... As if I'd let you get away!
After using the last of his power to reopen the gate, the puppeteer grabs Danua and drags her toward the vortex.
Danua: Ahhh!
Papa and Mama: Danua!
Her parents desperately try to pull Danua away from the puppeteer.
But Danua is drawn deeper and deeper.
Vyrn: We've got trouble! We gotta rescue them!
Lyria: Let's give them a hand, (Captain)!
But (Captain) and company cannot get any closer to Danua.
Danua: Papa! Mama!
Gretel: Hmph! What a sore loser! And a jerk, too! Let's get 'em, Hansel!
Hansel: I gotcha, Gretel.
Hansel and Gretel, along with Danua's parents, stand before the puppeteer.
Danua: Hansel! Gretel!
Hansel: Danua, you'll be just fine.
Danua: Hansel?
Gretel: Danua, don't look so sad! You're not alone anymore!
Danua: Gretel!
Rogue Puppeteer: Enough! You useless dolls!
Papa and Mama: Good... bye, Danua. We... love you.
Gretel: Ha ha! It was a short reunion, but it was fun. We're off!
Hansel: This is goodbye, Danua. (Captain). Everyone... Take good care of her.
Danua: Papa! Mama! Hansel! Gretel!
Danua: No... No... There's so much... I want to tell you!
Danua: I wanted us to live... as a family!
But her plea ends in vain, as the dolls begin to disappear with the puppeteer beyond the gate.
The gate to the underworld closes once again, and a silence fills the room.
Lyria: Why? It's... so horrible...
Vyrn: No fair! We couldn't do anything...
Danua: Why?
And this is how Danua's family had come together once again to protect her.
But this time would be different: Danua may have lost her beloved family of dolls, but she gains her voice back instead.
She sobs loudly as (Captain) and company guide her back to the airship.
She cries for several days as she tries to mend her heart after another loss.
Vyrn: Hey, Danua. Are you alright?
Lyria: Danua, I'm so sorry that I couldn't help.
Her concerned companions gather around her.
Danua: Th-thank you everyone.
Danua fights back a huge sob, and smiles gently through her tears.
To her, time had stopped ever since that day, but is quietly beginning to move again.
Danua: (I need to be strong... for my family.)
Danua: (Papa... Mama... Hansel... Gretel...)
Danua: (Thank you for loving me.)
Danua, her face still wet with tears, looks out at the sky unfolding before her.
No one knows what awaits her up ahead...
But no matter what the future brings, she'll face it alongside her friends.
Fate will no doubt shine upon them, like the brilliant blue sky above.

Dear Dollies[edit]

Danua had firmly rebuffed Anna’s offer to fix Hansel. Things between them had come to an awkward standstill. But Anna decided to try again. She learned that Hansel was Danua’s last link to her brother. Though Danua wanted to leave Hansel as he was, Anna was gentle but persuasive. Anna threw herself into fixing Hansel, but her repairs had no effect no matter how hard she tried.



Anna: Hehe... and, you know? I could’ve sworn you guys were some kinda hallucination...
Hansel: You have a point. Guess that’s what happens when you don’t step outside once in a while.
Gretel: Hahaha! I can’t believe it! How the hell does she know what you’re planning?!
Nightmare: Oh, just shut it! Look at you, trying to play it all cool!
Danua: Hahaha! Hehe!
It was another fine day on the Grandcypher. Anna was having an animated chat with Danua and her dolls.
Anna: Hehe... and even after we leave the forest.
Danua: Hehe... hahaha!
Gretel: Hoho! ‘ey, Hansel! Looks like someone’s got the giggles!
Hansel: Indeed. I can’t recall the last time I saw her like this.
Vyrn: Ooooh You two sure sure seem like you’re getting along!
Lyria: Hehe... it’s like they’ve been friends forever!
Gretel: I know, right?! Danua’s usually such a sourpuss, y’know?
Anna: ... really? Hehe... I’m kind of happy to hear that.
Anna: And, um... I’ve been meaning to ask...
Gretel: Hm? Spit it out! Why you gotta be all serious?
Anna: Well, um... it’s your head, Hansel... There’s a little bit of cotton sticking out of it...
Hansel: What, this? No worry. It’s always been like that.
Lyria: Hrm... now that you’ve said it, I can’t stop looking...
Vyrn: Yeah! Why not get it fixed up?
Anna: I... I can do it! I’ve had a lot of practice with Nightmare, you’ll be looking great in no ti?
Danua: !!
Danua reached out quick as lightning to slap Anna’s hand away. Her eyes stayed on Anna’s face, round with fear.
Anna: Huh?
Danua: ...
Vyrn: Hey! Wait! What the hell is your deal, Danua?
Lyria: I don’t understand... why would you do that?
Anna: .........
Hansel: Hrm. I suppose it’s a bit too light out. Is that it, Danua?
Gretel: Ah... and just when you two were getting along so well. She’s probably all ticked off now...
Danua: ...
Anna: Um... hey! HEY!
Gretel: You little...
Anna: I-I’m sorry... you don’t like the daylight, right? I didn’t mean to...
Anna: Um... Danua? Are you mad at me?
Danua: ... no!
Anna: Hehe... okay. That’s a relief...
Anna: Tell me... why don’t you want to fix Hansel?
Danua: ...
Hansel: Hrm. Perhaps we should handle this.
Gretel: Yeah...
The dolls explained that Hansel was a memento from Danua’s older brother.
Anna: Really...
Hansel: Yup. She probably just likes me the way I am, cotton and all.
Anna: But... wouldn’t you want to take care of something that’s important to you?
Anna: You can’t keep Hansel that way... it’s not good for him. ... and it’s not good for you either, Danua.
Danua: ...
Danua lapsed back into silence, but this time she held Hansel out to Anna.
Hansel: Oh?
Danua: I’m...
Anna: Yeah! I’ll fix him right up in not time. ... d-do you mind waiting a bit?
Danua: Mm-mm!
That night, Anna took a needle and thread in her seasoned hands and sewed up Hansel. Or at least she tried...
Hansel: ...
Anna: S-something’s not right...
No sooner had Anna finished than Hansel’s rip reopened. It happened again and again. And again.
Anna: I, um... I’m not too sure what’s going on, either...
Anna: But maybe... er... It could be the magic you used to bring Hansel to life, Danua...
Anna: And that, um... that might mean he can’t change...
Hansel: I see. So what you’re saying is a fix won’t work.
Gretel: Hahaha! You’re gonna have to stay ugly, Hansel!
Anna: I-I’m so sorry... I don’t know much about dollcraft...
Danua: ...
Danua: Tanks...
Anna: Wha?
Hansel: Thanks. She’s saying thanks. You did say you were happy, didn’t you?
Anna: Hehe... I did, didn’t I? It was my pleasure. Really, Danua.
Danua: Yea...!
In her own special way, Danua gave an enthusiastic reply.
Though Hansel had stayed the same, Danua was positively beaming with happiness.
