Arrival of the Spearman
Deliford, a master of the spear, saves Lyria from some hooligans. When he hears of the crew's reckless plan to travel to Estalucia, he is taken aback at first. However, struck by the crew's earnestness, he decides to join them in pursuing this dream again.
The crew lands in a certain town, and (Captain), Lyria, and Vyrn go out to run some errands at Katalina's request.
Lyria: Wow! Look, (Captain)! Vyrn! That over there looks delicious too!
Vyrn: Hey! You're gonna hurt yourself running like that! We better follow her, (Captain)!
Lyria: Whoa! Look at that candy! Say, (Captain)...
Lyria: Huh? Where did (Captain) and Vyrn go?
Vyrn: Hey, Lyria! Over here!
Lyria: Vyrn! I'm glad I found you—
Hooligan: Hey! Watch where you're goin'!
Hooligan: Heh... Well, if you're wantin' to apologize, how about a little money to show me you mean it?
Vyrn: Oh boy... Looks like she's surrounded by some troublemakers. We'd better go help her!
???: That won't be necessary. Stand back, children.
???: You there! Get away from that girl!
???: She already apologized, and that should be the end of it.
Hooligan: What? Who the hell are you!
Hooligan: I think this girl might be more trouble than she's worth. Let's scram.
Vyrn: Lyria! Are you okay?
???: You're not hurt, are you?
Lyria: No, I'm fine! Thank you for saving me.
???: I only did what was right. Still, you all should be a little more careful.
???: This town is hardly what I'd call safe and secure. These streets are no place for two children and a lizard to be wandering around...
???: But wait. A girl with blue hair and a flying lizard... Could it be that you're—
Vyrn: Whoa! Are you with the empire, old man?
???: Careful there. I'm still a young man, if only barely. Take that back.
???: And I'm not with the empire anymore... So I have no reason to capture you.
Vyrn: What's that supposed to mean, old man?
Deliford: Stop calling me an old man! I have a name, and it's Deliford.
Deliford: I might not look it, but I was once revered as a master of the spear.
Deliford: Unfortunately, I couldn't see eye-to-eye with my commanding officer, and I was relieved of my military duties a few weeks ago.
Lyria: That's terrible... And you seem like such a good person.
Deliford: Good guys don't necessarily get to live a good life...
Deliford: As a matter of fact, I've been looking for a position in which I can put my talents to active use, but there's not much out there...
Deliford: Though there's not much use in talking to you children about this.
Deliford: By the way, I heard you're looking for Estalucia, the Island of the Astrals. Is that true?
Vyrn: Sure is! We got a letter saying (Captain)'s dad is waiting there!
Deliford: On the Island of the Astrals?
You know, you look wise beyond your years...
Deliford: So it's about time for you to distinguish between dreams and reality.
Vyrn: Huh? What on earth do you mean by that?
Deliford: I mean exactly what I say. Your goal of reaching the Island of the Astrals is a dream, and a far-fetched one at that.
Deliford: I, too, aspired to reach that place when I was young. But it was just a dream in the end... A silly fairy tale.
Vyrn: What? Are you trying to say there's no Island of the Astrals, old man?
Deliford: I am. There's not a single example of someone going to and returning from the Island of the Astrals.
Vyrn: Why you little... Say something, (Captain)!
Choose: Come with us and we'll see.
- Come with us and we'll see.
- How about we take you there?
Deliford: With you? Are you telling me to join you in your travels?Choose: How about we take you there?
Deliford: Say what now? Do you mean you want me to come with you on your journey?Continue 1
Deliford: Well, you've got confidence, I'll give you that. But where on earth does it come from?
Deliford: Such recklessness... It seems both nostalgic and dazzling to me now.
Vyrn: What are you saying, (Captain)? This old man would never—
Deliford: Wait. I would like to apologize for my rudeness earlier.
Deliford: And if you're up for it... I would also like to join you in your travels.
Vyrn: What? What kind of change of heart is this, old man?
Deliford: As I said before, I also longed for Estalucia once.
Deliford: But before I knew it, I had forgotten that dream and focused on living a life of stability instead.
Deliford: However, seeing that look in your eyes, (Captain), has rekindled something in me... and I'd like to follow that dream once more.
Lyria: Heehee... But it's not just a dream. I'm sure we'll make it there!
Vyrn: Still, chasing this dream might end up being as reckless as you implied!
Thus Deliford joins (Captain) and company as their new companion.
His eyes begin to sparkle with a new light that wasn't quite there before.
The Trick to Staying Young
Feeling sore, Deliford envies the lively skyfarers and asks Eugen for some advice. Eugen tells him to keep his body moving. Monsters suddenly appear, just in time to give Deliford some exercise.
Deliford: Ugh... Ouch!
Vyrn: What's wrong? You're moving pretty stiffly there.
Deliford: It's... nothing. Ouch!
Lyria: Are you all right? Did you get hurt during the battle yesterday?
Deliford: No... It's nothing like that. It's just...
Deliford: My muscles are so sore it's hard to move.
Vyrn: I see... but we can't do much about that. You're an old man after all!
Deliford: I'm not old! I'm in my 30s, which is still borderline young, and—Ouch!
Vyrn: Listen, old man... You shouldn't push yourself too hard.
Deliford: Ugh... How pathetic. This didn't happen when I was younger... Well, I'm still young, but still...
Deliford: How is it that skyfarers always seem so energetic? I mean, this is a rough lifestyle!
Deliford: If they know some health secret, I'd sure like to hear it.
Lyria: Well... Why don't we go and ask?
Eugen: Hahahaha! The secret to youthfulness?
Eugen: Forget it! What good would asking an old man like me do?
Deliford: No! Your age makes you the perfect person to ask! Please, tell me!
Eugen: Well... You know, you won't get sore if you just keep moving around!
Deliford: Really? Is that all there is to it?
Eugen: Look! Some monsters are approaching the airship. This is a good chance for some exercise. Go take care of 'em!
Deliford: Got it! Just watch. There's nothing my spear can't pierce!
The Trick to Staying Young: Scene 2
The crew tells the sore Deliford to take it easy, but he insists that he must protect them as the adult of the group. Just then, a group of monsters approaches the ship. Deliford grits through his muscle pain and heads out to battle.
Deliford: Ugh... Oof... Ouch...
Lyria: He looks like he's in pain...
Vyrn: Yeah... It's obviously getting worse...
Deliford: I should trust what Eugen says, since he's much more experienced than myself....
Deliford: But matter how you look at it, it's getting worse.
Lyria: Um... Maybe you could try taking it easy?
Vyrn: She's right! Besides, there's nothing to worry about. We've got (Captain)!
Deliford: I agree that (Captain) is very skilled... But still, it's no good.
Vyrn: Hey, whaddya mean by no good!
Deliford: I mean that I'm no good. The captain's strong, but just a kid nevertheless. I'm the adult here.
Deliford: Children depend on adults, and the adults protect the children. That's our responsibility.
Deliford: Being such a weakling... I fail as an adult!
Katalina: Everyone! More monsters are coming! A group of them are approaching the airship from behind.
Deliford: Leave it to me! I'll... Oof! Ouch! T-this is nothing!
Katalina: Um... What's wrong with Deliford?
Lyria: Ha-ha... Well, you see—
Vyrn: Hey! There's no time to stand around! We need to join the fight!
The Trick to Staying Young: Scene 3
After defeating the monsters, Deliford is so sore he can hardly take another step. Although Deliford recovers only by resting for several days, his bravery in the ordeal earns him the respect of his friends.
Deliford: Ugh... I can't take another step...
Vyrn: Look at ya... You went way too far there!
Lyria: Heehee... But you were quite dashing when you were fighting, Deliford!
Deliford: Heh... Hearing you say that makes it all worth it. Ouch...
Vyrn: But now I'm curious... What is the secret to Eugen's youthfulness?
Lyria: I was wondering the same thing... Deliford did exactly what he was told, but it only got worse.
Deliford: Perhaps the secret to Eugen's vigor is simply that he's Eugen.
Lyria: Ha-ha... You might be right.
Vyrn: Oh boy... I guess you chose the wrong person to ask after all.
In the end, Deliford recovers from his soreness only by resting for several days.
It is from this ordeal, however, that Deliford earns the respect of his friends, who no longer call him an old man so often.
Jolts, Sores, and Groans
The crew finds Deliford sore from head to toe and calls Albert in to try some relieving electrotherapy. Midsession, Vyrn says something that upsets Albert, who then gives Deliford a real shock.
The crew gathers to depart on a new mission one day but finds that Deliford is nowhere in sight.
Concerned, they head to his room, where they find him in pain from head to toe.
Deliford: My muscles ache... Ouch, ouch!
Lyria: Are you okay, Deliford? You're pale, and you're sweating all over...
Deliford: Ack... Ah. Yeah, I'm fine. Sorry to make you worry, Lyria.
Vyrn: What's your plan here, gramps? It's time to head out on our mission.
Deliford: Hmm. Is that so... Well then, I guess I'll just have to get up and—Ow!
Rackam: Oy, Deliford! Don't strain yourself.
Deliford: But I could never forgive myself if you had to turn down that mission because of me...
Rackam: Well, I did hear about this electrotherapy that's supposed to relieve muscle pain.
Vyrn: Huh. How 'bout that. I'll bet we could try that out right now!
Albert: Hmm? What's going on here, (Captain)? It's just about time to go, isn't it?
Rackam: Hey, nice timing, Albert! Help us out here, would ya?
Albert: Ugh... What is it this time? You better tell me what's goin' on!
Rackam explains the situation with Deliford and how electrotherapy might be able to help.
Albert: Gimme a break. How did he strain himself that bad? Unbelievable...
Rackam: Come on, don't talk like that! All we can do now is help him!
Albert: Jeez. And what do you want me to do, exactly?
Rackam: Well, from what I've heard, you should be able to stimulate his muscles by sending a small current through his body.
Albert: Humph. Fine.
Deliford: Hey, wait a second! You can't just make this up as you go along! We'd better look into it more first.
Rackam: Oy, quit your blabberin'. I thought you were sore.
Deliford: Well, I am, but...
Albert: Don't worry. It won't hurt a bit. Just relax.
Aaah! The juice is loosening my muscles!
Deliford: Ah, ack! It does... feel like... it's working!
Deliford: Ack! Hey, Albert. Could you maybe turn it up a little?
Albert: Humph. Just tell me if it hurts.
Deliford: Ah! Ah, ack! That's... That's...
Albert: Humph. Too much for ya?
Deliford: No, that's just right. Ack! Oh...
Vyrn: Wow! It looks like it's really working! Hard to believe Albert's fixing up that geezer with electricity...
Vyrn: Haha! You'd never have imagined you'd grow up to be Old Man Sparks!
Albert: Don't call me an old man!
Rackam: Albert! What are you doin'!
Albert: Huh? Oh, sorry. I guess when I got mad I increased the power... Are you all right, Deliford?
Rackam: Hey, he's not dead, is he?
Albert: The voltage wasn't that high... At least I think not.
Rackam: Oy, oy, are you okay?
Albert: Ugh. You know, Vyrn is as much to blame as I am!
Vyrn: What! I didn't even do anything!
Albert: Yeah, right! If you wouldn't have called me an old man, then this never would have happened!
I... I feel...
Rackam: Hey, Deliford, are you feelin' all right?
Deliford: Hmm. I feel kinda numb, but other than that I'm fine.
Albert: I'm really sorry, Deliford.
Deliford: It's fine, Albert. It was just because of what Vyrn said.
Deliford: I don't blame you.
Albert: I appreciate that, Deliford...
Lyria: Umm, well, I guess everything's okay now.
Rackam: Ah... Yeah, I guess so.
Deliford: About that... Why do people call you an old man?
Deliford: What could be the reason? You don't look the part...
Albert: Hmm. You don't think so either huh. To be honest I'm not sure why anyone does!
Vyrn: Your conversations are always too serious! That's why they call you an old man!
Albert: Hey! I said cut it out!
Albert: Ah! Sorry. Looks like I did it again...
Deliford: Ack. That lightning worked like a charm, Albert.
Albert: But, Deliford, I...
Albert: Hey! Wake up, Deliford!
Lyria: Oh no! We have to help him!
Rackam: Crud... Deliford's completely fried now.
Vyrn: Oops... My bad, gramps.
Rackam: Great... Looks like we're gonna have to turn down that mission.
The next day Deliford wakes up and his soreness has completely gone away. He now feels better than ever.
Albert's electrotherapy becomes popular among the crew. They all start to think maybe they'd like to give it a try someday.
Just Beyond Reach
Chivalrous knight Deliford and former bandit Garma take on a job to protect some children. Garma's rough demeanor toward their charges does nothing to dispel Deliford's prejudices against bandits. In the end, Garma reveals that his behavior was not without reason, forcing Deliford to reexamine his assessment of Garma's character. The unlikely pair grow a little closer.
Very well. Garma and I shall undertake this task.
Garma: We will?
Several hours earlier, (Captain) tells Deliford and the rest of the crew about a job.
The job is to protect a group of wealthy children who are being chased by monsters as they evacuate to somewhere safe.
Deliford and Garma, now separated from the rest of the crew, make their way through a dense forest with the children.
Garma: This way. Hurry up.
Child 1: ...
Child 2: ...
Deliford: Garma, is there no way you could speak more gently? You're scaring them.
Garma: No. I'm here to protect the kids. No one said anything about talking nice.
The two skyfarers can't seem to stop bickering as they carry out their escort mission.
Deliford: (What could have possessed (Captain) to allow such an uncouth person into the crew?)
The serious and chivalrous Deliford does not think highly of the former bandit, Garma.
Deliford: (How many bandits did I encounter during my time in the army? And not a decent man among them...)
"Children depend on adults, so it is the duty of adults to be dependable."
Deliford, who believes wholeheartedly in this creed, finds it difficult to trust Garma.
Deliford: (But I suppose if (Captain) trusts him, then I should give him the benefit of the doubt...)
A child trips in the mud and falls over.
Child 1: Ugh, I don't wanna walk anymore!
Garma: Stop being such a crybaby. Get up—we need to keep moving.
Garma carries on in his irascible way.
Child 2: What! How dare you! I've had quite enough of your insolence! You've been paid to do a job, now do it!
Garma: We've been paid to protect you, so we are. Coddling costs extra.
Deliford: Inconceivable... To talk in such a way to such small children...
Deliford gently helps the child to his feet.
Child 1: Th-thanks...
Deliford: Not necessary. After all, if children are to depend on adults, it is the duty of adults to be dependable.
Deliford: Now, let us venture forth! I shall take responsibility for your safety from here on!
As soon as Deliford leads the children out of sight of Garma, something leaps out from the bushes.
In the blink of an eye, Garma dashes over and shields the children.
Deliford: Huh? Garma!
Garma: Rgh! Don't fuss over me! Get that monster!
Garma and Deliford successfully fend off the monster.
Deliford: Apologies... If I hadn't gone off with the children, this never would have happened...
Deliford: I'm sorry, Garma... In the end, it was you who saved the children.
Garma: I said I was here to do a job, didn't I?
Deliford: Heh. I was wrong about you, Garma.
Deliford turns to face the weakened monster and is about to put it out of its misery.
Garma: Deliford, wait.
Garma stops Deliford, then pushes the children toward the monster.
Child 1: Eek!
Child 2: Agh! What are you doing?
Deliford: What! What is the meaning of this?
Garma: Come on, now. Hand it over.
The children open their bag and pull something out.
It is a monster egg. The monster retrieves the egg and runs away.
Deliford: So that is why the monster has been pursuing these children.
Child 1: Sob... Sniff... W-we're sorry...
Child 2: Waaaah! We won't do it again, we promise! Just don't tell our parents!
Garma: I will tell them. Brats need to be taught a lesson while they're young.
Garma may be harsh, but he did ferret out the real reason why the children were being harassed by the monster.
As they head back to make their report to the client, Deliford asks Garma a question.
Deliford: How did you know that the children had stolen that egg?
Garma: Heh, it was obvious. You can tell by looking in someone's eyes if they're hiding something.
Deliford looks at him admiringly.
Deliford: Impressive... You were keeping a closer eye on the children than I was the entire time.
Deliford is embarrassed by the fact that he let his preoccupation with Garma get in the way of his duty to protect the children.
Deliford: It seems there is still a lot I need to learn...
Deliford has gained a newfound respect for Garma.
Several days later, Deliford spots Garma on the deck of the Grandcypher.
Deliford: Well, well! If it isn't Garma! So this is where you've been hiding!
Garma: What's up? Another job?
Deliford: No, no new job...
Garma: Then what? I can't think of any other reason you'd come and talk to me.
Deliford: Heh. Do I need a special reason to talk to a fellow crewmate?
Garma: Tch... I sense an incoming pain in the horns...
Deliford: Hahahaha! Don't be difficult. A little small talk won't kill you!
Ignoring Garma's unwelcoming demeanor, Deliford makes himself right at home.
From then on, Garma can often be seen on deck, suffering through Deliford's obliviously merry conversation.
