Holy Night, All Is Bright
During the crew's merrymaking, Goblin Mage—unable to resist the bright lights outside—runs off into the streets. Feena and the others give out presents to the townspeople in hopes of luring the little goblin to them. The plan works without a hitch.
After helping Santa Claus, the crew holds a feast at their inn to celebrate.
Feena: Ahh, nothing like a good meal after a hard day's work!
No version of Feena
(Captain) and the crew met the skilled agent Feena after dealing with an incident on a certain island.
Upon hearing that the crew is headed for Estalucia, Feena asked to come along for the journey.
Feena: (Captain)! When we're done with these goblins, you should totally hire me!
Feena: I'd love to go to Estalucia! If I ever make it there, I'll probably go down in history as a legend.
Without much hesitation, the crew welcomed the outgoing young lady with open arms.
Goblin Mage: Oooh! Yum-yums! Looks tasty!
Goblin Mage is a young goblin girl having a weakness for shiny things. She looks up to Feena and sees her as a sister.
A bond between the two grew as Feena took care of her.
Now the two are like family to each other.
Feena: Here I was thinking we were going wild, but have you seen the townspeople? That's what I call partying!
Feena: Look at all the lights they have on. It's so bright it looks like it's still daylight out there!
Goblin Mage: Wow! Everything's shiny!
Feena: Ah! Wait! Come back!
Goblin Mage bursts out of the inn and into the throng of people crowding the streets.
Vyrn: Uhh... Did we just lose the little goblin?
Feena: We have to go after her! Quick! What if she can't find her way back? Come on, (Captain)!
Lyria: You're right! Let's go!
They rush out onto the streets.
The crowds, however, only serve to make the crew's search all the more difficult.
Lyria: Nnn... It's going to be tough looking for her among all these people...
Feena: You've got a point. We should come up with some kind of plan.
Vyrn: That little goblin sure likes shiny things...
Vyrn: Well, can't say I'm any different when it comes to apples though...
Lyria: Oh! Do you have an idea?
Feena: She ran out here because it's all bright and shiny, right?
Feena: Then why don't we lure her back to us by lighting me up!
Vyrn: Huh? Whaddaya mean?
Feena: Sheesh! It's easy—just attach some sparkling stuff to me, and she'll come running!
Lyria: Um, shouldn't we just go to the brightest part of town instea—
Feena: Well, that could work. But c'mon, it's more fun this way!
Feena: Speaking of shiny and sparkly, look at that guy!
Vyrn: Where? Hmmm. Wait, isn't that Walder?
Walder: Oho? Well, well, if it isn't (Captain) and the crew.
Walder: That's right, good little boys and girls, it's the one and only... Ghillie Ranger Walder! Wa-shaa!
Walder: So what're you guys up to?
Feena: That's exactly what we need! Say, you wouldn't mind lending me your ornaments and stuff, would you?
Walder: Hm? You want my ghillie ranger decorations? Well, I suppose...
Feena dons the sparkling embellishments.
Feena: How do I look? Shinier? Sparklier?
Lyria: Hmm. I'm not sure that's what I'd call it...
Walder: Hrm. Yes, while it is flashy I wouldn't say you're shining.
Walder: Heh heh heh. Just goes to show: no one pulls it off quite like I do.
Vyrn: Actually, I don't think it looks any different on her than it does on you.
Vyrn: I'm guessing it's because the streets are so bright right now. You can't really stand out.
Feena: Mmm... I see... I guess Operation: Sparkly Feena is a no-go...
Lyria: Wha! When did the plan get a name!
Feena: Well, things are always more fun with codenames, aren't they?
Feena: Hmm... Plans, codenames... Why do I feel like I'm forgetting something...
Walder: I'm not sure what you're trying to do, but I'm sorry I couldn't be of more help.
Feena: Oh, no, no. You were a big help! Thanks, Ghillie Ranger!
The group wave Walder goodbye and return to the problem of finding Goblin Mage.
Feena: Now what're we gonna do.
Lyria: I hope she's okay...
Lyria: If only we had a flying sled like Santa does, we could search the town from above...
Feena: Hm? Santa?
Feena: That's it! Why didn't I think of it sooner!
Vyrn: Oh no... Here it comes... This isn't another one of your crazy ideas, is it?
Feena: It's time for the ultimate Holly Jolly Feena Claus!
Feena: Now this is how you draw Goblin Mage out!
Vyrn: H-hey! Where are you going? Let's follow her, (Captain)!
When (Captain) and company finally catch up to Feena, she's shouting to a crowd of people in the city square.
Feena: Everyone! Your attention please!
Feena: Super sparkly Feena Claus has come to town!
Man: Hm? What?
Woman: That girl's wearing a... Santa outfit?
Boy: Whoa! She must be pretty cold in that...
Lyria: Um. What's she trying to do?
Vyrn: Don't ask me...
Feena: All right! Are all you boys and girls ready for some presents?
Feena: But it won't be much fun if I just hand them out. So...
Vyrn: Whoa! Why're you shootin' arrows all of a sudden!
Man: Aah! Look out!
Hm? A toy arrow?
Feena: I'll tie your presents to the arrows and shoot them to you!
Man: What amazing control! That arrow landed right in front of me!
Woman: Hehe. A surprise Santa. How wonderful.
Oh, she gave me a present too.
Boy: Wow! You're awesome, Santa lady! You must be freezing by now though...
Feena: Not over yet! I'm just getting warmed up!
A crowd soon forms around Feena.
Vyrn: Gotta admit, that's pretty cool! But how's this going to help us find that little goblin?
Feena: Have a look! Everyone in town's smiling aren't they?
Happy faces young and old fill the town square.
Feena: See, instead of having all the attention on me...
Feena: Why not have all the townspeople shine with their smiles!
Feena: And if we gather enough of those smiles in one place, that'll be sure to lure Goblin Mage out!
Lyria: I see... Then let's help her out, (Captain)!
Feena: Great! I've still got a whole lot of presents left from what Santa gave us.
Feena: I'd really appreciate it if you could help give 'em out!
Feena and company pass the presents out, and before long they see the fruits of their labor.
Goblin Mage: Hm? Why're there so many people here... Oh! Feena!
Feena: Goblin Mage! There you are!
Feena: I'm so glad you're safe! How many times have I told you not to run off by yourself like that!
Goblin Mage: I-I'm sorry... Everything was just so shiny...
Vyrn: Says the one who ran off by herself to give everyone presents.
Feena: W-well, that was an emergency! That's different!
Feena: Anyway, be more careful next time all right? You had us all worried sick.
Goblin Mage: Okay!
Feena: There's a good little girl!
Feena: Now, why don't we give out the last of the presents together?
And so they spread joy and presents for the rest of the night.
Feena: One for you, and one for you! There's enough for everyone so—
Feena: Ah! My hand slipped!
Lyria: She somehow sent only the present flying!
Vyrn: You should have been doing that from the start...
Feena: Th-that was a fluke! I can't do it if it's on purpose!
Vyrn: Really? Looks to me like you're just using arrows 'cause it's fun.
Feena: I'm telling the truth!
No matter where Feena goes, she leaves shining smiles in her wake.
But it's not until much later...
That she remembers the promise she's forgotten.
Operation: Secret Feena
Feena walks the quiet streets, satisfied with a job well done. But then she remembers her promise to help Lucius give his sister a present without her finding out it was from him.
Feena's plan to find Goblin Mage by giving out presents is a success, and the crew is now reunited with the little goblin girl.
Having given out the last of their presents, Feena walks the now quiet streets with a look of satisfaction.
Feena: That was a fun night, wasn't it?
Goblin Mage: Mhm... Fuuun... Yaaawn...
Feena: You must be tired from all the excitement.
Feena: Ahhh. The night's over, we gave out all the presents, and...
Feena: Hm? Wait... All the presents? Why do I feel like I'm forgetting something...
Feena: Aaah! I totally forgot!
Goblin Mage: Feena? What's wrong?
Feena: I completely forgot... I can't believe this...
Feena: Operation: Secret Feena!
The story begins several days ago, when Lucius paid Feena a rare visit.
Lucius is a close friend of Feena's, as well as Teena's brother and fellow goblin hunter.
The siblings had once joined forces with Feena, (Captain), and the crew to resolve an incident on a certain island.
After which Lucius and (Captain)'s crew have been able to meet now and again for various missions.
Feena: You want to give Teena a present?
Feena: She's your sister, sooo... just give it to her.
Lucius: You see... I'm not used to this sort of thing. I'm not sure what to get her.
Feena: Ahh, that's what you mean. So you figured her good friend Feena might be the person to ask?
Lucius: In so many words, yes...
Feena: Okie-dokie! Got it! I'll do everything I can! I'm more than happy to give Teena a little surprise!
Lucius: Much obliged.
Lucius: Might I ask one more thing?
Feena: Hm? What's up? You know you can ask me anything!
Lucius: Could you make sure she doesn't know the present is from me?
Feena: Huh? Why not? No need to be shy about it, you're her brother after all!
Lucius: Humph. If you won't do it, I'll just have to ask someone else.
Feena: No, no! I'm not trying to make fun of you or anything! Just saying!
Feena: I can do it, don't worry!
Feena: The amazing Feena's gonna pick out the perfect present for your sister, no sweat!
Feena: And she'll never even know it's from you! Probably!
Feena: Codename... Operation: Secret Feena!
Lucius: I hope I'm not making a mistake here...
Feena: Of course not! I'm already on it!
Operation: Secret Feena: Scene 2
Feena remembers talking to Teena, Lucius's sister, about what she wants for the holidays. The conversation takes an unexpected turn, ending with Teena promising to make Feena a dessert after the feast.
After parting with Lucius, Feena meets with Teena.
Feena: Haaay! Teena! How ya doin'?
Teena: Feena! I'm preparing for the holiday party.
They were kind enough to invite me after all, so it's the least I could do!
Feena: Hmm, party preparations, eh?
Teena: Yep. Did you need something from me?
Feena: Oh! Yeah! Could I ask you something totally random?
Feena: Teena, is there anything you want right now?
Teena: Hmmm... Nothing in particular, really. Maybe some new cookware? Something cute!
Feena: Cute new cookware, eh? Mhmm.
Teena: How about you, Feena? Is there anything you want?
Feena: Huh? Me? Well...
Feena: I want to try something I've never tasted before! A delicacy maybe!
Teena: Hehe, I see. Then how about I cook something up for you?
Teena: Of course! You're talking about what we'll get each other for the holidays right?
Feena: Ah! Cat's out of the bag!
Teena: Hehe. Well, I know what to get you now!
Teena: I'll make a dessert for you right after the feast! Hmm, I wonder what I should do about the ingredients...
Feena: Oh, oh! I know! There's actually been this dish I've been dying to try for the longest time!
Feena: If I get the ingredients for you, could you make it?
Teena: Hehe, good idea! Let's do that, then!
Feena: Yes! You're a genius, Teena!
Teena: Hehe. I don't think this has anything to do with being smart.
Feena: So I guess my present to you would be the ingredients for the dish.
Teena: Guess so!
Feena: Hm? Wait a second. The two of us are going to make one present?
Teena: Haha. I don't see anything wrong with that.
Feena: Hmm... Yeah, why not!
Feena: Ahh, I can't wait for the big night! I'll get right on those ingredients!
Feena: Long story short, Teena's making me dessert!
Lucius: What? What about her present?
Feena: I'll tell you about that later! Right now we have a delicacy to catch!
Tasty Monster: Grrr...
Lucius: Don't tell me this is the delicacy you were talking about?
Feena: Yuppers! The meat's supposed to be sweet and tasty!
Feena: All right! Let's make it snappy!
Lucius: (Ngh... I've got my doubts about this... But I'm not an expert on cooking; I'll have to trust her for now.)
Operation: Secret Feena: Scene 3
Lucius has found a present for Teena, but wants Feena to pass it to his sister in his stead. Feena, however, fails to meet him at the promised time, only arriving once Teena has long gone to sleep. Feena saves the night by shooting the present into Teena's room with her trusty crossbow.
Since Feena and Teena have agreed to make their own present together, Lucius is left with no choice but to get a present by himself.
Lucius: What could Teena possibly want...
Lucius: I do remember her saying she wanted a teddy bear when she was younger...
Feena: Hmm. A teddy bear?
Feena: She's a little too old for that now don't you think?
Lucius: Sigh. I know. What else do you suggest then!
Feena: Hmm. Oh!
Feena: Now that I think about it, she did say that she was looking for some new cookware.
Why didn't you say so earlier...
Using the information gathered by Feena, Lucius manages to prepare a gift in time for the night of the feast.
Lucius: Let's meet here at this time tonight. I'll be waiting.
Lucius: We haven't decided on how to give her the gift, but... Are you sure it'll be all right?
Feena: It'll be fine! Trust me!
However, during her search for Goblin Mage, she forgets all about the meeting and only realizes the fact long after the agreed time.
Feena: I totally forgot... I have to get to Lucius quick!
Feena returns to the inn to find Lucius still waiting.
Lucius: Where in the skies have you been! Teena's already asleep!
Feena: I-I'm so sorry! I was giving out presents in town and time just flew by...
It's too late. The night's over.
Feena: Hmm... What if you snuck into her room and left it there?
Lucius: Have you ever heard of a lock?
Feena: Oh... I guess she would have her door locked... Hrmm, what to do...
Feena: Hm? Look, Lucius! The window to her room's open!
Feena: Sooo, this is our chance!
Feena: Never fear, Feena Claus has come to save the night!
Goblin Mage: Mmmgh... Yawn... Shave th' niiight...
Feena: C'mon! Hand over the present!
Lucius: Hm? What for?
Lucius casts a look of suspicion over Feena as he passes her the box.
Feena: Right! Now I just tie the box to an arrow and...
Lucius: Wait! What're you doing?
Feena: Duh, I'm gonna tie her present to this arrow and shoot it into her room!
Feena: It'll hit the wall, she'll wake up, and she'll get her present before the night's over!
Feena: Plus she won't know who sent it!
Feena: Oh, and don't worry, I won't use a real arrow. See? Just a toy!
Lucius: Nonsense, she'll know it was you in a heartbeat!
Lucius: Well, I suppose as long as she doesn't find out it's from me...
Feena: Enough dillydallying!
Feena: Time for tonight's finale!
Goblin Mage: Nnn... Yawn... Finale...
With great enthusiasm Feena prepares to fire the bow.
Feena: Conditions are perfect! No wind at all! I can't miss this one!
Feena: Here I go!
But at the moment she's about to let the arrow loose—
Goblin Mage: Nnn, cold... Ah-choo!
Goblin Mage's sneeze causes Feena to lose focus, and in turn, lose balance.
The arrow flies off in an unexpected direction.
Lucius: Dammit! Noooo!
Vyrn: What's goin' on?
(Captain), Vyrn, and Lyria are awoken by the scream. They rush to Teena's room.
What they find there is anything but what they were expecting.
Feena: Haha, sorry for scaring you like that! Even if it's not a real arrow, you must have gotten quite a shock.
Feena: But look, I delivered your present all the way to your pillow! That's gotta be worth something, right?
Teena: Argh! You almost gave me a heart attack...
Goblin Mage: Mmmgh... What happened? Ah! Teena's here!
Lucius: Sigh. I'm glad no one got hurt, but...
Feena: Hey! None of this would have happened in the first place if you'd just given her the present yourself!
Teena finds herself laughing at Lucius and Feena's exchange.
Teena: Hehe. Since when did you two get along so well?
Lucius: What? No we don't.
Feena: Hey! Could I at least get a little appreciation here?
Lucius: Humph. That I can give. Thank you.
Teena: Guess I spoke too soon...
Feena: Ah, almost forgot. Here's the ingredients!
Teena: Oh! Thank you! Both of you!
Lyria: Hehe. I'm not entirely sure what's going on, but they certainly seem to be having fun!
Vyrn: Wha! Hey, why's there an arrow stuck in that pillow?
Feena: Details, details! Don't mind that! What's important is that everyone's happy! Right, (Captain)?
- You're gonna have to pay for a new pillow.
Feena: I knew you'd understand, (Captain)!
Vyrn: Seriously? You're gonna let her off the hook just like that? Well, not like this is anything new for her, though.Choose: You're gonna have to pay for a new pillow.
Feena: B-but, look at all the good I did today! I'm sure that more than makes up for it, right?
Vyrn: Apples and oranges, Feena.
Feena: B-but!Continue 1
As (Captain) and the others banter on, Teena reaches into the drawer by her bed and takes something out.
Teena: Lucius. This is for you. Happy holidays.
Teena: Hehe. I didn't see you all day today, so I wasn't able to give it to you.
Teena: I hope you like it.
Lucius: Heh. It's perfect. Thank you.
Lyria: Aww, isn't that sweet?
Feena: That grin of yours is creeping me out.
Lucius: Wh-what? No, I wasn't...
Feena: Ahaha! No need to be shy! Cute little guy.
Lucius: You're looking for a fight, aren't you?
Feena: Oh? That how you want this to go down?
Teena: Wait, wait, wait! Just calm down you two!
You're right! Wouldn't want to spoil the festive mood, would we?
No, we wouldn't.
Teena: Well, how about I whip us up a late night snack then!
Teena: I can use the ingredients Feena got me and this cute bear-patterned pan from Lucius!
Feena: Yeah! I've been waiting all day for this!
Feena: Wait, bear pattern?
Lucius: What? Y-you think it was a bad choice?
Feena: No! I was just surprised! I think you made a great choice!
Teena: Yeah, I love it!
Lucius: Heh. Glad to hear it.
Teena: I'll get right on it then! Thanks again, Lucius!
Feena watches Teena run off to the kitchen. She then gives a look of satisfaction.
Feena: Today I was basically a super cute version of Santa and gave out a whole lot of presents.
Feena: It's only fitting that I get the last present of the night, right?
Operation: Secret Feena is a success.
And Feena and the others enjoy themselves all the way till daybreak.
