Ever since she began travelling with (Captain) and the crew, Ferry, who has always enjoyed talking to her spirit companions, has become able to hear the voices of her pets. The crew accepts a quest to rid some ruins of an evil spirit, but Ferry hears the voice of the spirit and let's them regain their original appearance by giving them a name. After this, Momo, the "evil spirit," becomes one of Ferry's companions. Ferry purchases some new clothes that she has always wanted and decides to continue with the crew on their journey.
(Captain) and the crew have taken a request and head to a town bustling with people.
Among the crowds, Ferry is watching the women go by, her head slightly tilted as if she were dreaming.
Ferry: That outfit isn't too bad, but… I think I'd like to be able to move about a little easier.
Ferry: Oh dear, her dress… it's a bit… Well I guess that's what you can expect from townsfolk…
Ferry: Wha-! What is it, Beppo? I should look at my own style first?
???: Tweee! Tweee!
Ferry: Fugee, Nicola… Why haven't you said anything before now!
Ferry: Geegee, you're the only one who's said that…
Fugee & Nicola: Twe-tweee! Tweeeeee!
Ferry: Haha! I get it, It get it! It's just a joke!
Lyria: Ferry, do you understand what your spirits are saying?
Ferry: Hmm? Well… At first I didn't…
Ferry: I met these guys after we all became ghosts you see.
Ferry: So when I lived on the island, I could only understand them like an owner normally understands a pet, but…
Ferry: Heehee, exactly! After we started traveling with (Captain) though…
Ferry: Little by little I came to be able to understand what they are saying!
Ferry: How do I explain… It's… It's not their sounds I understand, rather, I can hear words and voices in the noise.
Ferry: But even now I still sometimes misunderstand you? W-well I guess that cant be helped!
Fugee & Nicola: Tweee! Tweee!
Ferry: What! You say I was always like that?
Ferry: What do you think, Lyria? Isn't that terrible?
Lyria: Ermmm, I-I'm sorry, I have no idea what they're saying…
Ferry: Oh… Yeah…
Ferry: Heehee, it's interesting though… Listening to them speak is like hearing somebody with an accent…
Vyrn: Hey! It looks like it's here! The ruins specified in the request!
Vyrn is holding a request notice in his tiny hand, and is comparing it to the building in front of him.
Ferry looks up at the building, paint is peeling in some places and the whole place exudes a spooky atmosphere.
Vyrn: The ruins are haunted by evil spirits… That must explain the creepy atmosphere…
Lyria: Eeeeeek, it feels like something's gonna pop out at any moment!
Ferry: I guess, a ruin wouldn't be a ruin if it wasn't it ruins…
Ferry: Well, let's just get this request over and done with!
Ferry: Huh? What was that voice just now?
Lyria: V-voice? I didn't hear anything…
Ferry: But, it was real… You guys heard it, didn't you?
Fugee & Nicola: Tweee! Twe-tweee!
Ferry: Of course you did… It came from in the ruins, it sounded lonely…
Lyria: Eek! W-w-w-what could it be?
Vyrn: Hmm, I didn't hear anything that sounded like a voice… Hey, (Captain), how about you?
Ferry: So, it's just us who heard it?
Geegee: Uwooo! Uwoooooo!
Ferry: I see… A voice only we ghosts can hear… could it be…
Confused, Ferry, along with (Captain), enter the ruins where the evil spirit lives.
The sound of creaking floorboards greets the crew as it enters the ruins to exterminate an evil spirit.
Vyrn: This place really is even more of a ruin than I thought!
Lyria: I-it's so scary! Everything and it's shadow looks like it has something hidden in it… even that curtain!
Ferry: It's fine! If anything pops out, (Captain) and I will—
Evil Spirit: WROOOOOORGH!
Vyrn: It's there! Get it, (Captain)!
Ferry: No! Wait!
Ferry looks like she has noticed something and stops (Captain).
Evil Spirit: Wrooorgh…
Lyria: What is it?
Ferry: There's no mistake… This is the source of the voice I heard outside the ruins…
Ferry: He's so lonely, he was crying…
Evil Spirit: Wro-ro-ro-rooogh…
Vyrn: But… didn't we come here to get rid of it? Yanno, the evil spirit that's rampaging in the ruins…
Vyrn: It may be lonely but, attacking the construction crew that came here to rebuild was a bad thing to do…
Ferry: Yes, I agree, but…
Ferry turns toward the evil spirit.
Ferry: What is your name?
Evil Spirit: …
Lyria: Its name?
Ferry: Yeah, his name! Since he's a ghost like me, he must have had a name when he was alive.
Lyria: But the note says it's just an evil spirit…
Ferry: I see.
With resolve, Ferry turns to look at (Captain).
Ferry: Hey, (Captain). Can you leave this one to me? I think I have an idea…
Choose: Of course!
- Of course!
- Are you sure it's OK?
Ferry: Heehee, that was a quick reply. It's nice to think that you have confidence in me.
Ferry: Thank you. I won't betray your trust, but maybe you can watch over me for a while?Choose: Are you sure it's OK?
Ferry: Heehee, are you worried about me? (Captain), you're so sweet.
Ferry: But it's fine. I'm not going to do anything dangerous. You can still watch over me a little, though.Continue 1
Ferry slowly takes a step toward the evil spirit.
Ferry: Hey, can you tell me your name?
Evil Spirit: Gwooo…
Ferry: I understand… you're lost… Can you tell me your name?
Ferry: You… Over many month and years… you lost your name and your body? Then you became an evil spirit…
Evil Spirit: …
Ferry: We have been asked to get rid of you, the evil spirit, by the townsfolk.
Ferry: But, I don't want to do that. You said you were lonely so I don't want to leave you all alone…
Ferry: So, I'm going to give you a name.
Ferry: When I give you a name you wont just be a simple ghost, you'll be one of my companions.
Ferry: You'll transform from an evil spirit into yourself again. I wont let anybody call you bad things ever again!
Evil Spirit: …
Ferry: From this point on I will call you by your name, and you will be with me always….
Ferry: So, wont you accept this name from me?
Ferry: From now on your name is…
Peace returns to the ruins and (Captain) and the crew stop by the town on Ferry's request.
Ferry who has been to the town's tailor shyly steps out in front of crew wearing a new outfit.
Ferry: W-what do you think? Is it strange looking?
Lyria: It's fine! It really suits you, Ferry!
Ferry: Thanks, Lyria. This outfit is the first one I've ever chosen by myself.
Ferry: While I lived on the island, I only ever wore clothes that my parents had chosen for me.
Ferry: The clothes my parents chose for me are obviously still important to me, but…
Ferry: Since leaving the island I've changed a lot. I wanted something a bit more grown up.
Choose: It's very cute.
- It's very cute.
- Your bad fashion sense has certainly grown.
Ferry: You think so? Thank you, (Captain).
Ferry: Of course now that (Captain) has been so direct about liking my outfit, I'm getting all embarrassed…Choose: Your bad fashion sense has certainly grown.
Ferry: Myooon… What sort of response is that meant to be?
Vyrn: Was that really necessary, (Captain)?
After being passed a handkerchief by Vyrn, (Captain) wipes the tears away from the corners of Ferry's eyes.
Ferry: A-anyway… (Captain), you're happy with it right?Continue 2
Vyrn: Right! Now that we have finished that request, we can head on back to the airship.
Lyria: Yeah, on the way back we can pick up the supplies we need!
Ferry: OK, off we go!
Ferry: Come on, Momo! And the rest of you!
Fugee & Nicola: Tweee! Tweee!
Hearing Ferry's voice, her spirit companions that were playing nearby gather around her.
Vyrn: Yanno, I'm still surprised that in the end the "evil spirit" is coming with us…
Lyria: I'm surprised too! Surprised that Momo is soooooo cute!
Ferry: Heehee, Momo says that he's not cute, he's super cool!
Lyria: Eek! OK! Momo, you're cute and cool!
Vyrn: Anyway, as there are no evil spirits left in the ruins, I think we can say we completed the request!
Ferry: Yes… He'll never become an evil spirit ever again.
Ferry: And now that Momo is staying with me… I mean us… I think I'd like to stick around with you guys…
As she says this, Ferry takes (Captain)'s hand.
Having made a new friend, albeit a slightly strange one, (Captain) and the crew's journey continues.
Forever a Plunder
Since Ferry gave a name to Momo, he has been travelling with the crew. However, Momo is having difficulty getting on with the other spirits. Then, the thieves that the crew has taken a request to capture appear. Ferry sees this as an opportunity, and encourages Momo to show his abilities in order to be accepted by the other ghosts.
One fine day in the forest, Ferry's spirit companions are gamboling happily.
Fugee & Nicola: Tweee! Tweee!
Ferry: As I expected, Momo having trouble fitting in…
Lyria: Heehee, it's OK. As time passes, I'm sure he'll become great friends with everybody!
Ferry: I see… Luckily we have a lot of time…
Ferry: We can do it at our own pace, can't we, Momo?
Ferry: OK. Somehow or other they will definitely become friends. You know, birds of a feather…
Lyria: What do you mean "birds of a feather"?
Ferry: Oh remember I told you that when I met these guys I was already a ghost?
Ferry: At that time, none of these four had a name, and I had to give them one.
Ferry: But you know what's funny? At that time, I didn't know my own name!
Fugee & Nicola: Tweee! Tweee!
Ferry: But, thanks to them being there for me, even though I had lost my name, I rediscovered myself.
Ferry: So in that way, we are all the same… That's what birds of a feather means.
Lyria: I see. So it means people with the same experiences stick together…
While playing with Ferry's spirit companions, (Captain) and the crew continue through the forest.
Because recently thieves had appeared in the forest, the crew has taken request to apprehend them.
Ferry: However, walking through the calm forest, it seemed as if the reports of thieves were nothing but a lie.
Vyrn: You know, they attacked that researcher and stole a bunch of stuff…
Vyrn: Sounds like they are super dangerous guys…
???: Hey! Stop right there! Are you skyfarers!
Lyria: Huh? Well, yes?
Thief 1: Oho! Then we are the thieves you are looking for!
Thief 2: We have no need for valuables! But, now that you are all here, we will make this forest into a graveyard!
Vyrn: Huh! These guys are much more brutal that the request seemed to say!
Ferry: They also seem to have been lying in wait for us. Maybe news of the request for their capture leaked out somehow?
Ferry: This is our opportunity, Momo. Show everyone your good points and then Beppo and the others will have no choice but to accept you!
Forever a Plunder: Scene 2
The crew fells the thieves, but something seems weird. It is revealed that the thieves goal isn't actually to steal riches, but instead to distract the crew while a mysterious man kidnaps Ferry's spirit companions. Momo quickly spots the man and notices what's going on and the crew makes to chase after the kidnapper, but the thieves block their way once more.
Thief 1: U-urgh!
Ferry: Hm, that was surprisingly easy…
Ferry: Right, I don't know what your intentions were, but soon your rampage will be at an end.
Thief 2: Haah, uuurgh… D-darn you. Is it time?
Thief 1: I think so…
Hey, you! Skyfarers! We give up! We surrender!
Vyrn: What are they doing? I thought they were just simple thieves… But then they just attacked us straight out of the blue…
Vyrn: So I didn't think they would just give up that easily…
Thief 2: Heh heh, we're just doing our job, you know!
Thief 1: Well, we just did exactly what we were paid for…
Ferry: Momo! What is it?
Momo is barking at something. As the crew looks to where Momo is staring, they see a man kidnapping Ferry's spirit companions.
Mysterious Man: Argh. After all that, you swine… You blathered pointlessly until the very last moment…
Fugee & Nicola: Tweee! Tweee!
Ferry: Stop! What do you want with my children!
Mysterious Man: I will use their existence more effectively than you!
Mysterious Man: Hey, pigs! There's a bonus reward up for grabs. Buy me some time!
Thief 1: Ergh! Why does that researcher have to treat us like animals…
Thief 2: Hmmm… But yanno, earning some more gold isn't a bad idea…
Swaying, the thieves rise to their feet and face (Captain) and the crew once more.
Geegee: Uwoo, uwoooooo!
Mysterious Man: Stay right where you are and don't try and follow me, it'll be tiresome if you do…
While shouting over his shoulder, the mysterious man scoops up Beppo, Fugee, Nicola, and Geegee, and disappears into the forest.
Ferry: Stop! Fiend! Where are you taking them! Answer me!
Thief 1: Well, well… Bad luck, skyfarers… Hey wanna dance with us a little more?
Ferry: Damn! We need to get rid of these losers, and quickly! Momo! (Captain)! Help me out!
Forever a Plunder: Scene 3
The crew, led by Momo's powerful nose, tracks the mysterious man who took Ferry's spirit companions, and finds him lurking in a cave. The man's true intentions are revealed; he is a researcher who in scheming to misuse the power of Celeste, the primal beast. Ferry is enraged by the man's intention to extract her spirit companion's permanence in order to make the elixir of life, and challenges the researcher in order to save her friends.
(Captain) and the crew deal with the thieves and proceed to rush into the forest after the mysterious man.
Even though the group has lost sight of the kidnapper…
…relying on Momo's nose, they come across a dubious cave deep in the forest.
Lyria: This place is creepy even for a dark scary cave… I have a bad feeling about this…
Vyrn: What do you think that guy is up to, kidnapping the spirits and bringing them here?
Ferry: I don't know, but he managed to capture Beppo and the others.
Ferry: That's not just something anybody can do, I'm a ghost, so I should know.
Ferry: Maybe he's a magician or an alchemist… either way, we should be very careful.
They crew presses on further into the darkness, when a man suddenly appears in the gloom.
Mysterious Man: You surprised me. How did you managed to find me here?
Ferry: I have a friend with a great sense of smell.
Ferry: What in the sky are you aiming to do here! Return Beppo and the others to me now!
Mysterious Man: To tell the truth, you will probably think our investigation is strange too.
Ferry: What are you talking about?
Mysterious Man: Celeste, the primal beast… The power of her immortal ghost ship… That's what we are searching for.
Vyrn: Celeste! The one from the island of mist?
Mysterious Man: The very same. She appears irregularly on different islands.
Mysterious Man: There are many legends about immortality throughout the skies. But Tramont island was the last place the ghost ship was seen.
Mysterious Man: You skyfarers were involved in the disappearance of Celeste, weren't you?
Lyria: Huh, we…
Mysterious Man: You don't have to hide it. We have confidence in you.
Mysterious Man: That's why I paid those bozos and put up the request. It's because I wanted to lure you all here.
Ferry: This seems like it'll be a long explanation. So before you continue, will you return my children.
Mysterious Man: So soon? But I haven't told you of their true purpose yet…
Ferry: Purpose? What do you mean "purpose"? I wont allow you to use my friends for your experiments any longer!
Ferry: I'm not a person who is known for having a quick temper, but I'm really reaching my limit!
Mysterious Man: OK, I'll get right to the point…
Mysterious Man: Their ethereal bodies are preserved by Celeste's power. Extracting that power is our goal.
Ferry: Extract her power?
Mysterious Man: Through the power of the stars we will analyze the ethereal bodies and extract their permanence.
Mysterious Man: Oratory and wit, boundaries, invention and enlightenment. By them all, we will obtain immortality!
Vyrn: Hey, hey! You didn't say what the point of this all is…
Mysterious Man: If you want me to put it bluntly… Using the materials obtained through the power of the stars, we will make the elixir of life!
Lyria: Materials? That's…
Ferry: So, what happens to the beings once you've extracted the materials?
Mysterious Man: Hmm? They'll disappear wont they? We have no interest in the remaining dregs.
Ferry: YOU DASTARD!
Ferry's hand moves swiftly to her whip, when a pale shadow jumps at the man.
The man hurriedly shakes off Momo and puts some distance between him and the crew.
Mysterious Man: Argh, but consuming your permanence would have been so effective…
Mysterious Man: Such a half-baked, unnatural existence. You dare to defy us?
At the man's signal, a giant weapon appears from the back of the cave.
Adversa Reborn: Whiiiiiir!
Mysterious Man: This weapon is an imitation, it carries the power of the stars! This cave will become your tomb!
Vyrn: Awww maaan! So this guy is connected to the empire after all?
Lyria: This must have been the reason why I feel and unpleasant atmosphere coming from the cave.
(Captain) and the crew stand, unable to move, in front of the giant weapon.
But Ferry alone has no fear, and takes a step forward.
Ferry: Certainly… Even though we are already dead we remain in this realm.
Ferry: Our existence may be unnatural and distorted, but…
Ferry: But here… Here we are alive.
Ferry: Beppo, Nicola, Fugee, Geegee, Momo, and even me. All of us… We live!
Ferry: From the perspective of the world, the time that we have here in this realm may seem like an offence against the living.
Ferry: But, I'll never let anybody take this existence away from us! As long as I live, I will never give up!
Ferry: My companions are vital for me to truly be me.
Ferry: That why we have to get them back! There's no replacement for my friends!
Forever a Plunder: Scene 4
(Captain) and the crew destroy the weapon the mysterious man had set on them admirably, However, by that time, the researcher seems to have already made his getaway. The spirits are rescued and all four line up in front of Momo to express their gratitude. Although the relationship between Momo and the other spirits is still a little awkward, the ghosts have definitely become a little closer to each other.
(Captain) and the crew destroy the weapon the mysterious man had set on them admirably.
However, by that time, the researcher seems to have already made his getaway. Despite this, Ferry's spirit companions safe and sound.
Fugee & Nicola: Tweeeeeee! Tweeeeee!
Ferry: I… I'm sorry, that must have been really scary for you guys…
Vyrn: Hey… Who even was that dastard?
Lyria: I don't know… He didn't seems like he came from the Erste Empire… he was different somehow…
Ferry: We can't say for certain, but all that matters is that my children are safely back with me…
Ferry: That is enough… for now.
As she says this, Ferry takes all her companions in her arms and gives them a warm hug.
Ferry: Hmm? What is it, Beppo?
Ferry lets go of Beppo, Fugee, Nicola, and Geegee, and the four spirits line up in front of Momo.
Fugee & Nicola: Twe-tweee! Tweee!
Ferry: Heehee, isn't that nice Momo! Your hard work paid off!
Lyria: What did they say?
Ferry: Beppo and the others were saying thank you to Momo.
Ferry: It was a little awkward and they seemed embarrassed, though.
Fugee & Nicola: TWEEE! TWEEEEEE!
Ferry: Hahahah! OK, OK! I'm just teasing you again!
Lyria: Heehee, Ferry looks really happy!
Vyrn: It's not just Ferry that's joyful. her are companions too!
Nobody other than Ferry would ever be able understand what the spirits are saying.
However, due to the contented atmosphere exuded from the ghosts, (Captain) and the crew can't help but smile.
