1

The world turns and time passes. Life moves on, and it grows brighter still...
As we celebrate your birth here and now, the winds of celebration are blowing...
That was great, that was great! I said it! I did it, Singularity!
I've been practicing nearly non-stop since two nights ago! Good thing I didn't blow my lines!
So have a very happy birthday! Glad to be with you!
Let's do all kinds of fun stuff today! You're the VIP of the sky!

2

Today marks the passing of another year since you first came into this world.
I am thrilled to be able to celebrate the miracle of your birth into these skies alongside you.
Now then... I ask that you accept these blessed words of celebration on your behalf. Ahem.
Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday, dearrr Singularity!
Happy birthday to youuu!
I did it! So what'd you think? I totally nailed it again this year, huh?
Boy, I sure am glad I spent so much time practicing for this special day!
Now that that's all said and done, let's head into town!
What're you standing around for? We're doing anything and everything you want to do today, Singularity!

3

No matter how many seasons pass... you will always be at the center of my heart.
The sweetness of this decorated cake, and the brilliant flames that sit upon its candles...
Now, (Captain)! Extinguish the flames with your holy breath—
...
(Captain)! Haaappy birthdaaay!
Aaay... Aaay... Aaay...
Heh, that was perfect.
Wha! Waaait a second, why're you laughing?
Huh? My self-made echo was funny? But... but it was so cool!
Sigh... Oh well! As long as it put a smile on your face, I'm happy!

4

The past, the present, and the future... No matter when, you and I are fated to be together, it seems.
So let these untamed winds make way for a gentle breeze of fortune... and bring forth a storm of petals!
Happy birthday, (Captain)!
Heh... And that's how you do it.
Hehehe... Seeing you smile like that is the greatest gift of all!
Huh? Did I cut myself on any of the thorns this time?
Oh, (Captain)... Of course you'd be concerned about me—even on your own birthday.
Ahh, and that's why I love you so, so much, (Captain)!
You have my word as the god of war! My winds will accompany you all the way to Estalucia!

5

I am the Mad Cyclone that blows away all manner of hardships and obstacles!
May my zephyr transport all the blessings in the skies and deliver them to your doorstep, (Captain)!
For my favorite person! Happy birthday!
Dayy... Dayyy... Daayyy...
You know... This strange power seems to well up within me when I'm around you, (Captain).
Could it be... a sign of our compatibility? What do you think, (Captain)?
Ehehe, glad to know you feel the same way! Makes this my day as much as it is yours!
I'll be by your side forever and ever, (Captain)!
That means you can always count on me! I'll put myself on the line if need be for my favorite (Captain)!

Happy New Year Cutscenes

1

Singularity... This cycle of the seasons will unquestionably be one of much learning for me.
Our bonds shall intertwine and lead us to truth. And someday I will become a wind to rescue the sky.
Heh-heh... My resolution... is so cool! Right?
Huh? You don't know what I'm getting at?
Gee, c'mon! What I'm trying to say is... happy New Year!
So, Singularity! What sorts of resolutions do you have in mind?

2

(Captain)... We have flown together through winter, spring, summer, and fall, and once again, we stand on the threshold of a new year.
For 365 days, by sun and candlelight, I devoted myself to study. I have learned much about your world, but I sense there is much more to be discovered.
Now, hie with me to the mystic shrines, that we may see whither the winds of fortune will carry us.
You, um... get what I'm asking, right?
Yeah, exactly! You always visit a shrine on New Year's Day, right?
There you can draw a fortune and learn your luck for the year... and pray to the gods for a little extra help...
Oh! And the stalls! You can buy amazing food from a bunch of different stalls!
So, um, (Captain)! If you don't mind, want to come with me to a shrine... now?

3

Singularity. Another year means you must continue to increase your efforts toward surpassing your current state.
To begin, let us enjoy a traditional game of badminton with a shuttlecock made of the feathers of angels.
Then, we shall partake together in a meal as vitalizing as the breath of life itself!
Hey, what're you staring at me like that for?
The others in the crew told me about all these fun things you can do on New Year's, so I decided to come invite you!
Come on, let's get a move on! We've got a lot to do! No time for spacing out!
We'll play badminton, have some New Year's treats, then move on to all the other things we gotta do today!

4

Another year, another fortune drawing. May the winds be in my favor this year... please!
T-t-terrible luck? S-surely the gods have made some sort of mistake! Let's try again...
No, I must resist the temptation! Fortunes are only meant to be drawn once.
Oh, that's right! (Captain), what'd you draw?
G—g-great fortune?
That's amazing! Everything's already coming up (Captain) this year, isn't it?
Heh-heh... As long as your fate is in good hands, then I have nothing to fear!
And if you think about it, there's no worse fate you can draw than terrible luck, right?
If that may be the case, so be it! I shall carry the burden of this fate on my own for the rest of the year!

5

The dim light of dawn breaks through the silent night to shine its brilliance upon the new year!
Ooh, here it comes, here it comes! The sun...
Has risen!
Whoo! The first sunrise of the year is always way too much fun! Makes me feel like a whole new person!
Huh? Say that again? The sunlight makes me look like a god to you?
Aww, now you're making me blush!
You look pretty amazing under that light yourself, (Captain)!
Ehehe... You know, I get the feeling this year is gonna be better than most!

Wha-huh?
Eh, um, er! Huh?
Huuuh?
Ch-ch-chocolate? You mean you're giving chocolate to me! Meeee?
O-oh! Oh, I see! Ah-ahem!
Phew... Very well! I accept this expression of—
Aaah! I can't say my lines with a straight face!
Uh, um! Thank you! I'll take extra care to eat them all!
Thank you so, so much!

2

Hm? What is it, (Captain)?
What business could you have with the embodiment of a tempest?
Hah. I see... Once again, you have come to offer me your heart on a silver platter...
Nooo! I can't stop myself from smiling!
Aw... I was so excited about your present... I wanted to act all majestic and god-like when I accepted it but... I couldn't do it!
Anyways.. um... (Captain)! Thanks! A lot! You really, really made my day!

3

Very well, I accept your offering. To answer this act of goodness, I promise that you shall witness my godly might and—
W-wait, why're you looking so unhappy?
You don't like me calling this an offering?
Haha... I see how it is. You're right, Singularity. This isn't an offering—it's a present, isn't it?
You're giving me these chocolates not because I'm a mighty god, but because I'm someone you appreciate!
Gaaah, thinking about it that way, I just can't stop smiling!
Hang on, I need a second to put myself together. Look the other way for now, will you?

4

The first wind of spring approaches, and the fragrant scent of cocoa graces my nostrils once more...
There's no doubt. Another precious Valentine's Day chocolate from (Captain)!
Mmm... Thank you, (Captain)! I'll absolutely savor each and every bite!
Hold on now, what's this? You've included a letter this time!
Oh, boy, I can't wait to read it! Let's see what's written here...
The exquisite chocolate you're about to enjoy was harvested at Chocolae Island...
Aw, it's just the product description! I shouldn't have gotten my hopes up like that...
Huh? You've included another letter?
Wow, you mean it? For real for real? Awesome!

5

Amidst the sweet and captivating fragrance dancing through the air, it is your profound thoughtfulness that brings me to my knees...
Boy am I lucky to get chocolate from you, (Captain)... I consider myself one happy primal!
Hehe, I'm going to savor each and every morsel!
No way! You're serious? You want me to go "aah" so that you can feed me?
Whoo-hoo, this is the best Valentine's ever! I can't stop smiling!
Hoo... Haa... Breathe, Grimnir, breathe...
Aah...
Nom, nom...
Yummyyyy! Now that's a real treat!

Phew... All right. Just one more time practicing.
Singularity... This is the hour in which I repay you for the kindness you've shown me. For you, the sweetness of my tempest—
Whaaat! Singularity... H-how long have you been there?
From the beginning?
Aaaaah! I blew it! Why does this always happen to me?
W-well, anyway! Singularity! Here! It's your present!
I worked really hard to make it! So, um... Er, please eat it!

2

I have been waiting for you, (Captain)...
I offer you a gift of the finest dainties, within which my raging tempest swirls.
Come... Bring it to your lips and you shall taste a miracle on this, the whitest of days.
Heh... I said it all without stammering... I one-hundred-percent nailed it this year!
Huh? What? Is there something wrong with the sweets?
Gasp! That's the present (PROP, DO NOT GIFT) I was using to rehearse!
Oh no... I really thought I had it this year... I can't believe I wrapped the wrong thing...
(Captain)! I'm going to go grab your present, so wait right here!

3

The time has come... The vortex of emotions from each and every person overflows, painting the day white...
To return the warm feelings of affection you bestowed upon me, I offer you the wisdom of Chocolae Island imparted to me through this impeccable—
What was it again... Let's see, uh... Erm... I totally blanked out! You know, the word for how desserts taste...
Choose: Sweetness?
Oh yeah! This impeccable sweetness! Thanks, (Captain)!
Oh, wait, um... Where did I leave off? Right, uh...
A-anyway! What do you think? Don't they look sooo good? Well?
Actually, a patissier from Chocolae Island taught me how to make these!
So I'm sure they taste amazing! You're going to be blown away by how good these are!
Hm? What? Oh, this bandage on my finger? Um... This... is a secret! Top secret!
It's not like I accidentally cut my finger with the knife or anything! Anyway, don't worry about me—hurry up and try the chocolates!
Heheh, how is it? Delicious, right?
Huh? It's s-salty?
No way... Let me try.
Bleeegh! That's salty!
Umm... Ummm, I'm... I'm sorry, (Captain)!
I'm really sorry! Wait! Wait right here, okay? I'm going to make some new ones right now, so wait for me!

4

Ah, the fragrance of the exquisite rose, carried by a gentle breeze... fleeting but unforgettable.
As the petals dance atop your heart... uh, I mean, make your heart dance? A sensation before fate—beyond fate? Wait a second...
Ahaha... I suppose I still get a little flustered whenever I look at you, (Captain).
I might've flubbed the speech just now, but I'm confident in what I've prepared for you this year!
Now, (Captain). Take the rose into your hands along with my confectionery creation.
Yeowch! It just pricked my finger!
Heh, heh-heh... I mean, they say even the most beautiful rose has its thorns.
I'll cut the thorns off so wait just a moment!

S-Singularity! What is the meaning of this Halloween festival?
Everyone's playing some sort of prank on me. Wh-what should I do?
Huh? I have to hand out treats if I want to stop others from tricking me?
I see then... Trick or treat...
So what you're saying then is that... I can play tricks on other people too? Like you, Singularity...
N-no! Never mind! I'm embarrassed just thinking about it!

2

I am the God of War, the Mad Cyclone... Trick or Trrrrreatnir!
Behold, Singularity! I've amassed more treats than I can carry!
Heh... This Halloween festival is mere child's play to the God of War himself.
It seems that in the span of just one year, the one paying tribute has become the one receiving it...
Um, Singularity? Why are you looking at me like that? Don't tell me... Are you up to something?
S-stop! You're not planning to play a trick on me, are you? Wait, why are you moving your hands like that?
I-I'm sorry! I won't let it get to my head anymore, so please don't trick meee!

3

Whoooa! (Captain)?
I'm telling you, stop sneaking up behind me! You scared me there!
I mean, ahem.
Hmph, but unfortunately for you, my preparations are already complete. There is no escape for you, (Captain).
I'm different than last year! This year, I challenge you to a prank duel!
Huh? Wait, what? You want us to work together for tonight? Wait a minute, are you serious?
Yaaay! I get to enjoy the night with (Captain)! I can't wait—this is so exciting!
...!
(Captain), wait... Could it be that... you just tried to pull a trick on me... from behind?
D-darn it! A sneak attack! Phew, that was close! Waaay too close!

4

(Heh-heh... There's no way (Captain) would know I'm lurking here...)
(The captain's gonna be in for the surprise of a lifetime when I pop my head out!)
(Oho... Here we go... Now!)
Trick or tre—
Gwaaaugh! A m-monster!
Wait, (Captain), is that you? Now I see... a costume, huh? You gave me quite a scare!
Dang, and I was sure I'd get you this time, but somehow I ended up getting tricked instead.
...!
You predicted that I'd be here?
Heh... I see. It actually warms my heart a bit that you'd be so intimate with my inner machinations.

5

Whoa, (Captain)! Stop, stop!
Huff... Huff... We've been at it since this morning, and I'm all out of tricks...
(Phew, (Captain) doesn't seem the least bit tired. And here I thought I was the "beast"...)
Still, I have to do my name and rep as the God of War justice! I'll just have to keep tricking along until you throw in the towel, (Captain)!
But for the moment... What do you say we take a little breather?
A nice lady gave me some tasty-looking pumpkin candy earlier.
I can't help but wonder what it tastes like. I'll make tea for both of us, so let's enjoy it together!
Ahaha! Now that's a coincidence if I ever heard one! Who would've thought we'd be curious about the same candy!
Okay then, it's a temporary truce until we've had our fill!

Hey, Singularity, hey! It's not every year that there's snow on the holy night, huh?
That means this day's extra special!
Singularity, I've made up my mind! More than anything else, I'm going to enjoy this special holiday!
How do I plan on having fun?
Heh... Do you even need to ask?
There could be no better match for such than some quiet moments alone with the poetry of Nietzel...
Huh! W-wait! You're telling me that there's a holiday party tonight?
Are you serious! You've gotta tell me this stuff earlier! I wouldn't be anywhere else!
Hurray! I can't wait!

2

Garbed in a hat and suit of vermillion bright, with hair and beard of snowy white. Flying reindeer draw him in lacquered sled, unseen he brings gifts to children in bed.
(Captain), would you happen to know this distinguished figure?
That's right! Santa Claus!
Ahh! He's so cool! Delivering presents in secret and by stealth!
Sigh... I'd like to play Santa just once in my life!
Huh? What do you mean I'm too noisy and noticeable to be Santa?
I-I can do sneaky! I'll be the sneakiest gift deliverer ever!
I know! I'll try bringing presents to the crew tonight! I hope you're excited!

3

Heh. A winter feast at which people give shouts of joy like children is ill-fitting for a god of war.
My tempest shall take you to a place much farther, Singularity... to a banquet among the stars in this obsidian sky. Now, let us raise our gaze to the heavens!
Huh? If we spend all our time looking at the sky, there won't be any cake left for us?
U-ugh... We can't let that happen! Let's get back to the party right away!
Just to be clear, it's not like I wanna have cake or anything! I was just thinking how it'd be sad if you didn't get to eat any... Yeah!
Oh, but I really did wanna spend time stargazing with you!
After we get ourselves some cake, let's come back out to look at the stars!

4

Whoa... H-hey, check it out, (Captain)!
Have you ever seen such splendorous illuminations like this? They're absolutely spellbinding!
O holiest of lights, on the holiest of nights, cleanse the darkness of night and its billions—er, trillions of evils...
Ah, darn it! I was this close to nailing it that time!
Heh... Well, as long as you thought it was funny, I suppose that's fine too!
Wait, look! It's snowing for real! Wow... It's so white and sparkly!
Heh, now this is a scene that takes me back.
I made the right choice joining your crew, (Captain).
I mean, every day is more fun than the last, and that's all thanks to you!

5

Wow! This is my type of wintry world! Look at all that snow piled up!
There's only one thing for us to do here, (Captain)!
That is to invite the jolly old man in red who sports the finest of majestic white beards to make a snowman with us!
We can dress up the snowman in a dandy scarf and hat! It's going to be sooo cute!
But first... We should all make sure we're dressed up nice and warm!
The holiday bash is gonna be no fun at all if you catch a cold!

The Mad Cyclone

Late one night, an invisible entity speaks to (Captain) in the captain's quarters. It wakes (Captain), and a sudden wind rocks the ship just a moment later. After rushing to the deck to investigate, the captain sees the primal beast Grimnir appear. Grimnir asks to travel together with (Captain), whom he refers to as Singularity.



The depths of night.
(Captain) is slumbering soundly in the captain's quarters, relieving the previous day's fatigue.
As if to interrupt the sleep, a voice begins speaking in (Captain)'s head.
???: You wanderer seeking truth, you heretical singularity!
???: Cast aside your tranquil twilight slumber... Awaken!
  1. I think someone's calling me...
  2. (Ignore it and keep sleeping.)

Choose: I think someone's calling me...
(Captain) rises from the bed and looks around to see whether there is anyone in the vicinity.

Choose: (Ignore it and keep sleeping.)
The half-sleeping (Captain) makes sure that no one is in the room and returns to sleep.
???: H-huh? Maybe the captain can't hear me... No, no, there's no way!
???: Um, excuse me! I... I... I'll have you know that—
Continue 1
The following moment, a wind wails out and rends the silence.
And the ship thrashes to and fro as if caught in a storm.
  1. ...!

Choose: ...!
(Captain), intuiting that something unusual is afoot, rushes to the deck.
On the moonlit deck stands a figure—
A lilac-haired youth grinning from the center of a mad cyclone.
???: Heh, how long's it been, Singularity...
Guessing that a wind trial is about to begin, (Captain) promptly draws a blade and assumes a battle stance.
???: Sheathe your silver brand... I have not alighted here to present you with a trial of wind.
The lilac-haired youth then extinguishes the cyclone to show his peaceful intentions.
Still unable to take in what's happening, (Captain) puts away the weapon as requested.
The captain prepares to ask the figure his business when—
Lyria: (Captain)! What was that big shake...
Vyrn: Hm... Sure is funny, huh? The wind's not blowing, but we got rocked around anyway...
Vyrn: Who's he supposed to be?
???: Hm?
???: Well now! If it isn't the red dragon and girl in blue! It's been sooo long!
Vyrn: Been so long? This is my first time ever seeing ya...
???: Ah, I see. When I stopped by last time, you were all sleeping like babies.
???: Heh... Then I must once again announce my name!
The genial expression vanishes from the face of the lilac-haired youth, and he shoots a piercing gaze at Vyrn and Lyria.
Grimnir: I am the god of war and mad cyclone, Grrrrrimnir!
Vyrn: ...
Lyria: ...
Grimnir's forceful introduction leaves Vyrn and Lyria speechless.
Grimnir: Heh... That was so cool...
Lyria: Um, sure... It's nice to meet you!
Vyrn: Uh, okay...
Grimnir: Huh? Hold on. You guys didn't think that was lame, did you?
Grimnir: It was seriously cool, right... Right?
Grimnir: Hey, say something, Singularity!
Tears well up in Grimnir's eyes.
(Captain) explains to the wincing Vyrn and Lyria that Grimnir is the primal beast who previously gave them a wind trial and special powers.
Lyria: Oh, I see! Thank you for all your help!
Lyria: Did you come to give us another wind trial?
Grimnir: No, I have not. This wind was not that of any trial...
Returning to the topic at hand, Grimnir speaks to (Captain) with fresh vigor.
Grimnir: Singularity, when you mold your unique might to your will and surpass all mortal logic, the wind is sure to glimmer as never before.
Lyria: Um, so...
Vyrn: Y'know, I don't think I really get what you're sayin'...
Grimnir: Ah, uh... Er? You didn't understand?
Lyria: Umm... I might've gotten the main idea...
Vyrn: Hey, think ya could explain that a bit easier?
Grimnir: Groooan... What I mean to say is, well, someone told me I should meet with the singularity to stand against threats...
Grimnir: And that I should learn from the singularity to gain new powers!
Vyrn: Hm... Someone? Who're ya talking about?
Grimnir: That's, uh... Um, yeah... It's a secret.
Lyria: Huh?
Grimnir: A secret's a secret.
Vyrn: ...
Vyrn: C'mon, Windy! You're supposed to be so super strong that you can put (Captain) through trials.
Vyrn: But you still think you're gonna learn from us?
Grimnir: Yes, I'm positive of it. If I journey together with you, I'll certainly gain the power with which to dispel darkness.
Grimnir: Singularity! I am the mad cyclone, tempest incarnate. But in this moment I am also a breeze seeking new power.
Grimnir: Will you not let me join you... On this ship over which you preside... On this path that you are forging?
  1. No question!
  2. No way!

Choose: No question!
Grimnir: R-really! Reeeally?
Grimnir: Hurray! Yippee!
Lyria: Teehee! He looks so happy!

Choose: No way!
Grimnir: Wha-huh? Um, er, uh... Huh! Huuuh?
Grimnir: W-wait a bit! Singularity! Think that over some! Think it over a bit more!
Grimnir: I'm pretty amazing, you know? I can make storms and stuff! I'll work really hard. Reeeally hard!
Grimnir: Heeeey! Ask the captain for me, red dragon and girl in blue!
Vyrn: Phew... He's really serious.
Lyria: (Captain), since Grimnir's saying all that... Why don't we let him travel with us?
Grimnir: That's right! Come on, Singularity!
Seeing the sincerity with which Grimnir and Lyria are pleading, (Captain) cracks a smile.
The captain apologizes for teasing and grants Grimnir permission to join.
Grimnir: What, you were just kidding? Good thing! Quit freaking me out already!
Lyria: Heehee! Isn't that nice?
Continue 2
Vyrn gives Grimnir a skeptical look.
Vyrn: Are you really as impressive as (Captain) says?
Grimnir: Aah... Eh-hrm! Singularity, I am grateful for your consent!
Grimnir: Let us then set our sights on the end of the blue sky! May my winds be your wings!
Grimnir: Heh-heh! Thanks a bunch, Singularity!
In this way, the grinning primal beast comes to join Grandcypher's crew.
Hoping to gain the power to dispel darkness, (Captain) also intends to learn from Grimnir.

The Mad Snowstorm

Visiting the frigid land of North Vast to deliver cargo, (Captain) and crew are caught in a sudden blizzard that obscures their sight and separates them from each other. Sensing how dangerous the situation is, Grimnir disperses the storm and attempts to track down the others. Just a moment after finding Lyria, the god of war realizes that lethal monsters are nearby.



The frigid land of North Vast.
The sky—blue just moments ago—is suddenly covered with leaden clouds, and an arctic wind blows down the mountain slopes.
That wind is accompanied by snow, which before long turns into a merciless blizzard that sets upon (Captain) and the others.
Lyria: Eeek!
Vyrn: Are you okay, Lyria?
Lyria: Yes... I think so...
Grimnir: This silver snow is wild and ferocious as a beast... But my tempest is surely—
Grimnir: Achoo!
Grimnir: Ooh, it's sure chilly! You okay, everyone?
Vyrn: I know the weather's supposed to change quick out there, but... Who'd have expected a blizzard like this?
As the blizzard grows more intense, the party's line of sight is obscured.
The land is blanketed in another layer of white snow that reflects the sunlight and dazzles any viewers' eyes.
Before long, there is a complete whiteout.
Grimnir: Oh no! Singularity! Red dragon! Girl in blue!
Grimnir: I lost sight of them. Agh... How pathetic!
Grimnir stirs up a whirlwind and puts it on like a form of armor.
As a result, the blizzard is unable to get near him, which ensures a clean line of sight.
Grimnir: Wait just a bit! I'll rescue you no matter what!
The lilac-haired youth lets out a hardy cry to (Captain) and the others who were swallowed up by the blizzard.
But the only response is the whipping of the wind.
Grimnir: Where... Where are they?
Grimnir: This blizzard is too dangerous... There's no time left to lose—I have to find them!
Grimnir: Heeey, Singularity! Red dragon! Girl in blue!
Grimnir continues to cry out into the blizzard, hoping to find (Captain) and company again.
A short time later—
???: Grimnir!
Grimnir: That voice—it's the girl in blue!
Lyria: Yes, that's right!
Grimnir: Oh, thank goodness you're safe!
Grimnir: But what about the singularity and the red dragon?
Lyria: I don't know. I couldn't see anything during the blizzard.
Lyria: But I'm so glad that we could find each other! I was so worried...
Grimnir: Heh, everything's okay now. Before this tempest, the rime and silver snow are as good as powerless!
Grimnir: Haaaaah!
Grimnir wraps Lyria in a protective armor of wind much like his own.
Lyria: Oooh, wow! I guess the snow's no big deal for you, huh?
Grimnir: Hehe, well, I am a god of war after all.
Grimnir: All right! Now to seek out the singularity and red dragon.
The following moment—
An otherly gaze pierces Grimnir and Lyria.
Grimnir: (Monsters...)
Grimnir: Girl in blue... Get behind me.
Lyria: Grimnir...
Grimnir: There's no problem.
Grimnir: Before my tempest, darkness and monsters are as good as powerless!
Turning his eyes to the writhing monsters on the other side of the veil of snow, Grimnir smirks.

The Mad Snowstorm: Scene 2

Shortly before they are separated, a boy is leading (Captain) and crew to the settlement their cargo is bound for. The weather takes a sudden turn for the worse, and white-out conditions cause the crew members to lose sight of each other. (Captain) is blown into a crevasse with the boy. The captain serves as a shield, breaking the boy's fall but incurring injuries from head to toe. All the pair can do is wait for help from the others.



Not long ago—
(Captain) and the party have landed in the frigid land of North Vast, where they are delivering cargo to an underground settlement.
A gentle wind blows across the great blue sky. It is cold, but the air is clear and pleasant, setting (Captain)'s mind at ease.
Vyrn: We got lucky all right! It sure woulda been tough unloading this stuff in a blizzard.
Lyria: Teehee, you're right.
Lyria: Hm? Um... someone's coming this way.
A boy is rushing toward the party from the direction in which Lyria is pointing.
Boy: Hi, skyfarers! Thanks for bringing us our cargo!
Lyria: Hi! Uh, are you here to show us around?
Boy: Yep! Looks like the weather's just gonna go downhill from here, so I wanted to show you a shortcut.
Vyrn: Go downhill, huh? But it's so clear out.
Boy: Around our parts, clear skies'll turn to snow just like that.
Grimnir: Humph... He seems right... The makings of the wind seem to be acting up. We should hurry.
Vyrn: Wow, you can tell all that!
Grimnir: Heh, my dear red dragon! Do you not remember who I am?
Grimnir: I am the god of war himself, the mad cyclone—Huh?
When Grimnir looks around, (Captain)'s party has already moved on.
Vyrn: Whatcha standing around for, Windy? Better hurry up or you'll get left behind!
Grimnir: W-wait! Hold up a bit!
In this way (Captain) and company come to hurry along the shortcut shown to them by the boy.
Before long, the party members are walking on a steep mountain path on which there is a light crusting of snow.
Along the way, Lyria slips on the ice, at which time (Captain) catches her.
Lyria: Thank you, (Captain)!
Boy: There's a crevasse up this way, so watch your step!
Vyrn: A creva-what?
Boy: Um... It's like a crack in the frozen ground.
Boy: In some places it could be so deep that no light reaches the bottom.
Lyria: Oooh...
Vyrn: But with this weather, we oughta be fine as long as we keep an eye on the ground. We won't fall in if we're careful!
This lighthearted conversation is cut short.
The sky—blue just moments ago—is suddenly covered with leaden clouds, and an arctic wind blows down the mountain slopes.
That wind is accompanied by snow, which before long turns to into a merciless blizzard that sets upon (Captain) and the others.
Lyria: Eeek!
Vyrn: Are you okay, Lyria?
Lyria: Yes... I think so...
Grimnir: This silver snow is wild and ferocious as a beast... But my tempest is surely—
Grimnir: Achoo!
Grimnir: Ooh, it's sure chilly! Are you okay, everyone?
Vyrn: I know the weather's supposed to change quick out there, but... Who've expected a blizzard like this?
As the blizzard grows more intense, the party's line of sight is obscured.
The land is blanketed in another layer of white snow that reflects the sunlight and dazzles any viewers' eyes.
Before long, there is a complete whiteout.
(Captain)'s eyes scan the vicinity tirelessly, but the forms of the others soon dissolve into the blizzard and are no longer visible.
The captain decides not to wander though, thinking that the party could be split up as a result.
Boy's Voice: Aaaaah!
The boy's voice is faintly audible from within the groaning whirlwind.
  1. ...!

Choose: ...!
Sensing that this is no ordinary storm, (Captain) rushes into the blinding blizzard toward his voice.
(Captain) sees the boy holding on to a tree root for dear life, desperate to avoid falling into the crevasse.
Boy: S-skyfarer...
  1. I'll save you!

Choose: I'll save you!
Just as (Captain) turns toward the crevasse to pull up the boy, a sudden gale blows.
Boy: Aaaaah!
Right before the captain's eyes, the boy loses his grip and falls into the crevasse.
The following moment—
(Captain) leaps into the crevasse after him.
The captain is determined to save the boy.
Boy: Groan... I'm sorry. I told you to watch the crevasse, but I didn't watch it good enough myself...
While the two are still falling, (Captain) grabs the boy's arm and embraces him to protect him from the impact.
But as a result...
Contact with the walls of the crevasse wound (Captain) from head to toe.
Seeing that the boy escaped without a scratch, the captain breathes a sigh of belief.
  1. Don't worry. The others will save us.

Choose: Don't worry. The others will save us.
Boy: S-skyfarer...
(Captain) and the boy wait for help together in the crevasse.

The Mad Snowstorm: Scene 3

Grimnir prepares to protect Lyria by battling the encroaching monsters, but when Vyrn suddenly cries out from beyond the snowstorm, the monsters converge on him instead. Grimnir then leaps into the group of monsters to keep the red dragon safe.



Grimnir: Girl in blue... Get back behind me.
Lyria: Grimnir...
Grimnir: There's no problem.
Grimnir: Before my tempest, darkness and monsters are as good as powerless!
Turning his eyes to the squirming monsters on the other side of the veil of snow, Grimnir smirks...
And he takes a deep breath.
Grimnir: This is it! My cyclones shall strike you!
???: Aaaaah!
Grimnir: Mmph...
Lyria: Grimnir... That voice is Vyrn's!
Grimnir: Of course... In that case...
Grimnir notices that the monsters' violent rage from a moment ago is now being directed toward Vyrn.
Grimnir: It's in monsters' nature to attack the weak. The creatures can't be blamed, but... This has to end now.
Grimnir: Red dragon, I'm going to save you! Carry me, O glorious gales!
Grimnir, riding on the wind, leaps forward through the air and precisely alights before Vyrn.
Vyrn: W-Windy!
Monster: Grrrr!
Grimnir: Monster... You have nothing to fear...
Grimnir: This tempest is the will of heaven... It shall lead you to peace!
Firmly gripping a spear under one arm, Grimnir dives into the circle of monsters.

The Mad Snowstorm: Scene 4

Grimnir unleashes the power of wind to blow back the monsters and storm, then rescues (Captain) and the boy from the crevasse. The crew is then able to deliver its cargo to the settlement without incident. Grimnir listens to the thoughts of the people in this hardscrabble land and thereby learns from mortals.



The battle ends in just seconds.
Monster: Grrr...
With a few deft attacks Grimnir dispatches the monsters that were poised to attack Vyrn.
Grimnir: Sleep... And may the wind protect you on the other side.
Vyrn: You saved me! You're a real hotshot after all, huh, Windy!
Grimnir: Hahaha! Stop already. You're embarrassing me.
Lyria: Vyrn, I'm glad you're okay!
Vyrn: Lyria! I couldn't see a thing. Talk about feelin' nervous!
Vyrn: Anyway, we've got trouble. Come this way, would ya?
Vyrn guides Lyria and Grimnir to the tear in the mountain path—the crevasse which opened without warning.
They are left breathless.
Grimnir: Is that... the singularity and the boy!
Vyrn: I thought I could hear a little voice coming from the crack. So I peeked in and...
Lyria draws near to the crevasse and peeks down, taking care not to slide in.
Lyria: It's too dark to see anything, isn't it...
Lyria: You two! Are you okay?
Boy: Ah, skyfarer! It looks like the nice lizard showed everyone the way here!
Boy: Hey, everyone, I'm okay! But the skyfarer's hurt!
Lyria: Oh no... (Captain)'s injured. What should we do?
Grimnir: Time is of the essence—I'm unleashing my power!
Vyrn: H-hold up! What are you gonna do?
Grimnir: Humph... If I were to widen the opening of this crevasse, it should be possible to save the singularity and boy.
Lyria: Can you really do that!
Grimnir: Yes! My tempest makes it a simple matter!
Vyrn: But your power's super strong, Windy. You sure the shakin' won't start an avalanche?
Lyria: Th-that wouldn't be good at all.
Grimnir: Ah! You're right! That would be a disaster!
Grimnir: Well, in that case...
Believing Vyrn to be right, Grimnir considers whether there might not be another solution.
But at the same time, a distant rumbling becomes audible and grows louder.
Vyrn: Hm? What is it?
Lyria: It sounds like it's coming from up in the mountains.
Grimnir: What bad luck... Now of all times...
Grimnir's lament is more than appropriate.
A group of brawny monsters rush down from the mountains.
Monsters: Grrroar!
Grimnir: This is a disaster! The ground's shaking! Avalanche incoming!
A thunderous torrent of snow comes rushing toward the party, almost as if led by the monsters.
Its fury is great, and it threatens to swallow up everyone on the mountain path.
Vyrn: This is bad! We're gonna be in as much trouble as (Captain) and the boy!
Lyria: What should we do?
Grimnir: I have a plan! It's a little rough around the edges, but... there's no other choice!
Lyria: Grimnir!
Grimnir: Young man! Tell us where the underground settlement is located!
Boy's Voice: Uh, yeah... Our settlement is—
Having learned the location, Grimnir stares into the oncoming avalanche and takes a deep breath.
Grimnir: My tempest will judge the darkness and protect the light! You will now see my divine fury!
Grimnir: Wind! Obey my will!
The mad cyclones that Grimnir releases are so powerful as to overwhelm nature itself.
Monsters: Grrrr...
The blizzard and dark clouds are blown back, and the approaching monsters are annihilated.
Grimnir: ...!
Grimnir: Haaaah!
This concentrated power of the wind forms a wall of tornados.
And the avalanche is stopped cold—before deflecting off in another direction, safely away from the crevasse or underground settlement.
Grimnir: Phew... Looks like I managed...
Vyrn: W-wow!
Lyria: That's right... It's unbelievable.
In this way—
Grimnir dispels the double-faced threat with his great power.
Not long afterward, Grimnir successfully rescues (Captain) and the boy from the crevasse.
  1. Thanks!

Choose: Thanks!
Grimnir: No need for that. I just did what needed to be done.
Grimnir: You're a bit beat-up though. Hold on if you would...
Grimnir: Wind... Comfort us...
A breeze wraps itself around (Captain)'s body in response to Grimnir's gentle incantation.
Grimnir: That should do... You must feel a bit lighter now.
(Captain) shakes all four limbs to test the difference.
Stunned by just how much weight has been taken off, (Captain) thanks Grimnir.
Grimnir: Don't worry about a thing. You've done well.
Vyrn: Wow! So cyclones don't just wreck stuff... They can help people out too!
Vyrn: You can do anything, huh, Windy? Guess we can count on you!
Grimnir: Heh-heh! Well, I'll give you all the help you want.
Lyria: Um, you aren't hurt, are you?
Boy: The skyfarer protected me, so I'm fine!
Vyrn: What a mess though. Fallin' into that crevasse had to be scary, huh?
Boy: Nope. 'Cause me and the skyfarer were together.
Boy: And the skyfarer told me not to worry 'cause the others would come and save us no matter what!
Grimnir: So you believed we'd save you no matter what, huh...
Grimnir: Heh...
Grimnir reflects on (Captain)'s words and lets out a sheepish laugh.
Later on when (Captain) and company arrive at the underground settlement with their cargo, the settlers express profuse thanks and invite the crew to a banquet.
Settler: Eat up now, eat up. Nothing better for a cold body than hot food.
Vyrn: Hehe, this stuff's sure tasty! Let's dig in!
Lyria: Bon appetit!
Lyria: Nom, nom...
Lyria: Teehee, this is so delicious!
Vyrn: You said it! It's warmin' me up from the inside out!
Settler: You're why we get to eat anything this delicious here in the backwoods.
Settler: I know it won't be easy, but I hope you'll deliver us food and supplies from here on out.
Lyria: Okay!
Grimnir: Settler, may I ask you something?
Settler: Anything you please. What is it?
Grimnir: It's about why you'd live in such an unforgiving land...
Grimnir: One that freezes bodies. One with blizzards and avalanches. It's so inhospitable to mortals.
Settler: You're right about all that. But home's what you make of it. Ain'tcha ever heard the saying "Home is where you hang your hat"?
Settler: And like I just said, we can always have skyfarers like you deliver anything we need.
Settler: I guess what I'm trying to get at is... What really matters isn't where you live, but who you choose to live with.
Lyria: Who you live with... I understand how you feel!
Vyrn: Me too! When you're with the people who matter to you, it doesn't matter where you live.
Settler: As long as you can find some bit of happiness in daily life, that's enough.
Grimnir: I see... It must take strength to think that way.
Settler: Anyway, c'mon... Eat up before it gets cold!
Grimnir: All right! Looks real good!
Grimnir: O-ow! It's too hot!
Listening to the settler and (Captain), Grimnir gains fresh insight into the world of mortals.
He is sure to learn more on his journey with the crew.
Grimnir vows to continue growing each day to contend with the new challenges ahead.

Sealed Memories

Hoping to end a war between two nations that was orchestrated by a third party, Grimnir and the crew head for the front lines, where they encounter a winged woman who calls Grimnir a traitor. Her report leads to the arrival of the primal beast Odin, who refers to Grimnir as his other half before piercing him with his spear, forcing the crew to retreat.



Soldier: Hyaaah!
On a hilltop overlooking a battlefield where two armies are engaged in fierce combat...
(Captain) and the crew square off against a formidable foe.
???: Behold the spear of absolute annihilation... Gungnir!
Grimnir: ...!
Grimnir: That move... No, stay focused!
Grimnir: Unleash your fury, my cyclone—
Grimnir: Ngh!
The enemy's spear pierces Grimnir's body with great force, sending him hurtling backward over a nearby ledge.
Vyrn: Windy!
(Captain) leaps off after to catch him, and they plummet toward the ground.
???: You would protect my other half, skydweller?
???: ...
Grimnir, blessed be the path before thee...
The figure mutters to himself, slicing through the air with the same spear that had been lodged in Grimnir's side only moments before.
Several hours prior, (Captain) and the crew make their way toward a remote island.
Grimnir: I see... So a pair of nations battling over territory both requested your help.
Grimnir: It seems the winds have carried word of (Captain)'s ability to even the most remote reaches of the sky.
Lyria: But we don't want to help them fight—we want to put an end to the fighting.
Vyrn: (Captain) did a little digging, and apparently the two countries used to be on friendly terms.
Vyrn: But suddenly there was a surge of shady activity around the border...
Lyria: Both sides grew increasingly suspicious of each other until the conflict erupted into a full-fledged war.
Grimnir: In other words, this battle may have been orchestrated by a third party.
Vyrn: Bingo. So we wanna get to the bottom of what happened and stop the fight!
  1. For that, we need the God of War.
  2. Think you could lend a hand?

Choose: For that, we need the God of War.
Grimnir: Heh... Of course.
Grimnir: To the God of War, Grrrrrimnir, admonishing mortals over such disputes is a simple task!

Choose: Think you could lend a hand?
Grimnir: Aw, don't look so nervous, (Captain)!
Grimnir: Just leave it to me! I'll stop this silly scuffle!
Continue 1
Grimnir: And besides, I couldn't bear to sit idly by and allow them to continue hurting each other like that.
Grimnir: There's no time to lose! Let's be on our way—(Captain), Girl in Blue, Red Dragon!
Grimnir: My mighty tempest shall bring a swift end to this war swirling with tragedy and intrigue!
Thus, (Captain) and company head for the remote island in hopes of defusing the situation.
Upon their arrival, they survey the battlefield from a small hill overlooking the two armies.
Lyria: Oh no... We've got to hurry and stop them..
Grimnir: Girl in Blue, are you all right? You can look away if you need to—
Grimnir: ...!
What's that?
Grimnir glances up at the sky, peering at something in the distance.
(Captain) and company follow his gaze to see a winged woman observing the battle from overhead.
???: ...
As she prays, glowing spheres arise one after another from across the battlefield and gather before her.
???: Come, souls of the fiercest soldiers. I shall lead you to Valhalla.
Grimnir: What are you doing?
???: ...!
Spotting Grimnir, the woman swoops down and lands before the crew.
Grimnir: You're no mortal... Are you the mastermind behind this conflict?
???: It's you... Grimnir!
Grimnir: Indeed! I am none other than the Mad Cyclone, Grrrrrimnir—
Grimnir: Wait, huh? You know me?
???: Traitor! How dare you show your face here!
Grimnir: T-traitor?
(Captain) and the crew are bewildered by the woman's overt hostility toward Grimnir.
Seemingly indifferent to their reaction, she raises her voice to the sky as though speaking to an invisible presence.
???: This is Skuld, reporting in.
Yes, my lord. No... We have encountered some... interference.
Skuld: It's Grimnir.
All at once, the clear skies around them are filled with dark clouds and violent lightning.
Vyrn: Th-the heck did she just do?
Lyria: Something's coming! It feels like...
With a roaring crash of thunder, a spear-wielding figure appears on horseback.
Lyria: A-a primal beast!
Vyrn: What!
???: Ah, how long it has been. Grimnir—my other half.
Grimnir: Wh-what are you talking about? I have no idea who—
Grimnir: Ngh!
Grimnir clutches his head as it suddenly erupts with pain.
Grimnir: (What the!)
???: This battlefield is a hunting ground created to seek out mighty warriors and invite their souls to Valhalla.
???: Do not interfere with our selection.
Vyrn: Hunting ground? Does that mean you're the ones pulling the strings behind this war?
Lyria: How could you force them to fight like this! That's awful!
(Captain) and company stand to face the primal beast and his apparent subordinate, Skuld.
Grimnir: They're right. If you intend to needlessly increase mortal suffering through such meaningless battles...
Grimnir: I—the God of War and Tempest Incarnate—will stop you here and now!
???: Then you leave me no choice.
???: Grimnir. If you insist on another audience, I shall grant you death.
The armor-clad primal beast extends his spear in Grimnir's direction, prepared to strike.
???: Behold the spear of absolute annihilation... Gungnir!
Grimnir: ...!
Grimnir: That move... No, stay focused!
With a flash, the enemy unleashes a swift attack.
Had it been launched from an ordinary weapon, Grimnir would have had no issue repelling it.
Grimnir: Unleash your fury, my cyclone—
Grimnir: ...!
The blow is deflected by Grimnir's winds, an absolute defense against all attacks.
But the next moment—as though it was inevitable from the beginning—the spear pierces his body.
Grimnir: Ngh!
Grimnir is sent hurtling backward over a nearby ledge, spear still lodged in his side.
Vyrn: Windy!
(Captain) leaps off after to catch him, and they plummet toward the ground.
Lyria: Please help them, Tiamat!
Tiamat slows the pair's fall, and together they make a hasty retreat with the rest of the crew.
???: You would protect my other half, skydweller?
???: ...
Grimnir, blessed be the path before thee...
The man gazing down at the battlefield mutters to himself, showing no intention of pursuit.
Grimnir: ...
Odin...
His consciousness fading, Grimnir utters the familiar name that floats into his mind.

Sealed Memories: Scene 2

Born as Odin's alter ego centuries prior, Grimnir learns about war and skydweller culture, while also helping to oversee Valhalla—a land where the souls of departed warriors are trained. But through his interactions with skydwellers, Grimnir decides to pursue the possibility of coexistence with them, and Odin grants him his freedom.



Several hundred years ago, when the Astrals still ruled the skies...
Odin: Awaken, my other half.
???: Huh? Where... am I?
Odin: It seems your consciousness has been successfully separated.
Odin: This is Valhalla—a land under my rule where the souls of great warriors gather.
Odin: And my name is Odin—God of War and Thunder Incarnate. You are my alter ego, formed from a portion of myself.
???: Alter... ego?
Odin directs the man toward a nearby palace window.
He looks outside to see a horde of ghostly soldiers training single-mindedly.
Odin: I was created by the Astrals and given my own unique role to fulfill.
Odin: Namely—to gather the souls of fierce warriors as a means of ensuring the continued supremacy of the stars.
Odin: I bring them here to Valhalla and forge them into even sharper and stronger weapons.
Odin: To carry out this duty, I keep abreast of the ever-changing circumstances of the skies and guide the chosen ones from the battlefield.
Odin: Occasionally it becomes necessary to fan the flames of war myself. After all, heroes are not born in times of peace.
Odin holds out a single spear to his still rather stunned alter ego.
Odin: You will become my eyes and limbs and storm the skies as my other half—my shadow.
Odin: I trust that you understand?
???: ...
Odin: I shall bestow upon you a name. You are the raging tempest that leads the thunder—
Grimnir: Odin! You called?
Odin: Grimnir... Yes, I did.
Odin: You are to make your way to the site of the skydweller uprising in the southwest, as mentioned in your report.
Odin: Skuld, I will have you accompany him.
Skuld: Yes, my lord.
Grimnir: Aww, you're not coming, Odin?
Grimnir: But you were so cool when we fought together on the battlefield last time! Let's team up again!
Odin: That was a special case. There was a soul present that I simply had to obtain at any cost.
Odin: My role is to oversee Valhalla. For what purpose do you think I created you?
Grimnir: Tch... Okaaay...
Grimnir: There've been fights breaking out all over the place lately, so I might as well go check that one out too.
Odin: Very good. I entrust this task to you.
Grimnir: Take good care of Valhalla while we're away!
Odin: ...
I realize that I instilled my most sociable aspects into you for the sake of gathering information...
Odin: But at least fix your manner of speaking. It carries not the slightest bit of authority.
Grimnir: Wait, really? Everybody says I'm easy to talk to though...
Grimnir: So you're saying I should use cooler-sounding language like you do, then? Hmm...
Skuld: ...
Odin looks on with a pensive expression as Grimnir wracks his mind for the answer.
One evening, Grimnir is summoned to Odin's study.
There, the thunder god hands him a book.
Grimnir: Is this written by a mortal? Looks like the author's name is Dostoepsky...
Odin: That is called literature. It is the most efficient method for familiarizing yourself with the language of skydwellers.
Grimnir: Crime... Punishment... Good deeds...
Grimnir: Whoa, you read some really complicated books! So this is how you got to be so cool!
Grimnir: Hey, can you tell me what this one's about?
Odin: Oh, very well...
In this way, Grimnir gradually increases his literary knowledge under Odin's instruction.
Grimnir: Say, Odin. What's the deal with—ahem. What I mean to say is, what drives you consume so many books?
Odin: I do so to study the culture of the skydwellers.
Odin: By assessing their thoughts and ideologies, as well as the principles that govern their behavior, I can perfect the tactics to be used against them.
Odin: Furthermore, the souls of warriors invited to Valhalla are no different from skydwellers.
Odin: Although they become obedient soldiers when selected as a result of my power, they still retain their mental capacity.
Odin: All that I do is for the sake of training and leading powerful champions.
Grimnir: Huh... Okay...
Grimnir: In that case, I'll try reading more too!
Grimnir: After all, I'm your other half! I've got to be able to do at least that much!
Odin: Very well...
Odin: Now, this treatise describes strategies and formations that have proven their worth across a myriad of battlefronts in the region.
Grimnir: Ooh, a myriad! Wow!
Thus, on top of learning about the art of warfare...
Grimnir: Check it out, Odin! I found a book by a mortal near the battlefield...
Grimnir comes to understand more about culture and language of mortals through perusing countless texts.
Odin: What is this book? There appears to be a dreadfully large amount of spoken dialogue...
Grimnir: Oh! That one's all the rage among the mortals these days.
Grimnir: It's a story about a powerful wizard who has an accident and ends up traveling to another world...
While simultaneously aiding them in their duty to wage battle, their reading also serves as an enjoyable form of entertainment...
Grimnir: The time has come for me to depart. 'Tis my mission to storm the battlefield and seize victory.
Grimnir: Never fear. My winds will not allow a single soul to excape—
Grimnir: Nooo, I flubbed it! And it was going to sound so cool, too!
Odin: Your speech has been corrupted by the words of that book you brought here before.
Grimnir: Hey! I know you liked that one too!
Grimnir: There's supposed to be a sequel coming out soon! I'll make sure to snag a copy!
Grimnir: Well, I must be on my way. Blessed be the path before thee...
Odin: ...
Blessed be the path before thee.
The signature phrase that Odin comes to share with Grimnir, too, is nothing less than a line taken from a book.
The culture of mortals has begun to take root in Grimnir's heart—a fact he is not unaware of.
Some time later...
Skydweller: Gwah!
Grimnir: ...
The skydwellers rise up to free themselves of Astral rule, and the War begins.
As Grimnir wields his spear upon the battlefield amidst the escalating conflict, he begins to have doubts.
Grimnir: (Through traveling the Sky Realm and being exposed to skydwellers and their culture, I've come to understand something.)
Grimnir: (Skydwellers are amazing. I mean, sure, they're not as strong as Astrals or us primal beasts...)
Grimnir: (But they're filled with emotions, adept at thinking, capable of creating interesting things, and able to live together hand in hand.)
Grimnir: (Couldn't Astrals and skydwellers work together and find a way to coexist like that too?)
Grimnir: (But according to Odin...)
Odin: Don't be absurd. Have you forgotten the meaning behind your very existence?
Odin: We are weapons created by the Astrals for the purpose of strengthening their reign. You need only think of fulfilling your role.
Odin: Skydwellers are fragile, weak beings that are inferior to the Astrals in both physical strength and technological prowess.
Odin: Thus, it follows that they exist to be ruled over. It is the joy of the weak to be led to greatness by the strong.
Grimnir: ...
Grimnir: (There are fewer soldiers here than before. They must have been sent to subdue the skydwellers again.)
Odin: I see you have returned, Grimnir.
Grimnir: Oh... Odin.
Grimnir hesitates momentarily before pulling out a book from his pocket.
Grimnir: I borrowed another book from a mortal today! The expressions in it are hard to understand, but it's really interesting!
Grimnir: You should read it too! I just know you'll—
Odin: Nietzel, is it?
Odin: I perused it long ago. It was a collection of poems with no research value whatsoever.
Grimnir: ...!
Odin: The war is taking longer than anticipated. We must supplement Valhalla's forces with more soldiers. You are to revisit the battlefields tomorrow.
Grimnir: Odin...
And so, near the end of the War...
Grimnir eventually finds himself unable to ignore the doubts growing within him.
Grimnir: Odin... I refuse to take part in this war against the skydwellers any longer.
Odin: ...
Grimnir: I have no regrets over having fulfilled my role—as your other half, as well as a fellow primal beast.
Grimnir: But I honestly don't know if it's right for the Astrals to keep ruling the skies.
Grimnir: So... I'm sorry.
Grimnir: (Oh man, I actually said it! Odin's going to be so angry! What do I do?)
Odin: ...
I never imagined that you would acquire an ego so different from my own.
Grimnir: Huh?
Odin: Very well. If you wish to leave Valhalla, then so be it.
Odin approaches Grimnir and reaches out for his head.
His hand ruffles the hair of his alter ego, much like an elder brother's show of affection to his younger kin.
Grimnir: O... din?
Odin: Farewell, my other half.
Odin: Blessed be the path before thee...

Sealed Memories: Scene 3

Shortly after Grimnir awakens on the Grandcypher, Raphael arrives to heal his injuries and inform him that his true power and a portion of his memories were previously sealed away by Odin. In order to recover them, Grimnir agrees to face Raphael's trial.



Grimnir: Mngh...
Lyria: Oh, Grimnir! Thank goodness you're awake!
  1. We were worried sick.

Choose: We were worried sick.
Grimnir: (Captain)... Girl in Blue...
Grimnir: Is this... the Grandcypher?
Vyrn: You keeled over when we were runnin' away from that primal, Windy.
Grimnir: Oh. Sorry for giving you more work...
Grimnir: You know, I just had the weirdest dream... I was spending time with that primal beast, Odin...
Lyria: That was... Odin?
Grimnir: Anyway, I'm glad you guys are safe.
Grimnir: But now that we know that primal is the one responsible, we've got to hurry and stop him!
Grimnir: Ngh!
Vyrn: Whoa, hold up! You gotta stay still after that beatin' you took!
Grimnir: But...
Grimnir frantically attempts to stand as (Captain) tries to hold him back.
Just then, a gust of wind suddenly sweeps into the room.
Raphael: Acting in haste will do nothing to better the situation.
Before them appears Raphael, the primarch who once governed the element of wind.
Grimnir: R-Raphael!
Raphael: I had intended to avoid interfering and entrust everything to the winds of fate, but it seems that is no longer an option.
Raphael holds his hand over Grimnir's wound, calling forth a gentle breeze to envelop him.
Within moments, his injuries have healed enough that he is able to sit up.
Lyria: What brings you here, Raphael?
Raphael: I caught wind of the fact that something was ailing my disciple, Grimnir.
Vyrn: Oh, yeah. He really got banged up...
Raphael: No, I am referring to something else entirely.
Raphael: The seal that was placed upon you is on the verge of coming undone.
Grimnir: What!
Raphael: A portion of your memories have been sealed away together with your power. By your other half—Odin.
Lyria: Wait, Odin?
Vyrn: That primal we saw earlier is Windy's other half?
Raphael: During the War, I heard rumor of two so-called war gods traveling from battlefield to battlefield.
Raphael: They were known as Thunder and Tempest Incarnate—Odin and Grimnir.
Grimnir: Th-then that dream I just had...
Raphael: I presume that your memories are slowly beginning to return as a result of your clash with Odin.
Raphael: When I first encountered you wandering the Sky Realm, I noticed that a seal had been placed upon you.
Raphael: Thus, I accepted you as my disciple in order to keep watch over the future course of your winds.
Grimnir: Ah... That's right...
Raphael: To stop Odin, the power sealed within you must be fully restored.
Raphael: It is within my capability to release the seal, but should you be unable to control the immense power that will undoubtedly be unleashed...
Raphael: The elements of wind could go out of control, leading to a collapse in the balance of the tetra-elements.
Grimnir: I see... Say no more.
Grimnir: You want to ascertain whether I have the ability to handle the power raging within me.
Grimnir: I could ask for nothing more. The God of War is capable of overcoming any trial!
Lyria: B-but Grimnir, you only just recovered from your injuries...
Grimnir: Thanks for worrying about me, Girl in Blue!
Grimnir: But... I've decided to use my power to protect the vulnerable.
Grimnir: And that's why I want to stop Odin from starting any more conflicts.
Grimnir: I'll do whatever it takes to make that happen!
Grimnir: So just sit back and watch me in action this time around, (Captain)!
Fully trusting in Grimnir's words, the captain nods.
Grimnir: Heh, thanks!
Raphael: Your eyes are unclouded by doubt. I acknowledge your resolve.
Raphael: Now then, Grimnir—my disciple. I shall confer upon you the trial of wind...

Sealed Memories: Scene 4

Grimnir succeeds in overcoming the trial, allowing him to break the seal placed upon him. Remembering the true name of his spear—the Vortex of the Void—as well as his memories of the past, Grimnir resolves to put a stop to Odin's ambitions.



Grimnir: Surging storm and piercing gale—blow forth! Haaah!
Raphael: Such magnificent winds. It appears that your interactions under (Captain)'s guidance have served to enhance your growth.
Raphael: Now, the time has come to break free of the seal that binds you...
After overcoming the trial, Grimnir's body is enveloped in a dazzling light.
Grimnir: ...!
Odin: The name of that spear?
Odin: It was merely the result of dividing my own weapon, Gungnir. Therefore, it has no name.
Odin: Gungnir was split in two at the moment that I created you from myself. Therefore, the power of your spear is also—
Odin: What? You wish for me to join you in thinking of a name for it?
Odin: If you insist...
Vyrn: H-hey... Windy?
Grimnir stares at the spear in his hand.
Grimnir: Ah, I remember now. Odin...
Grimnir: The ruler of Valhalla and wielder of Gungnir—the spear of annihilation that never fails to hit its mark.
Grimnir: My other half... who exiled me.
Grimnir: And this spear...
Grimnir: It's none other than the counterpart to Gungnir—the Vortex of the Void!
The moment Grimnir calls out its name, the spear releases a gust of wind, causing (Captain) and company to reflexively shut their eyes.
Lyria: Eep!
They reopen them to see Grimnir standing before them, his weapon surrounded by howling winds.
Raphael: The seal has been safely released, and the winds are stable.
Grimnir: Indeed. Now I can combat that spear of annihilation.
Grimnir: Behold, (Captain). At long last, I have attained my final form as the True Cyclone and God of War...
Grimnir: Perrrfect Grrrrrimnir!
Vyrn: R-right...
Lyria: W-wow...
Grimnir: Hey! Why won't you two look at me!
Grimnir: Come on, (Captain)! Wasn't I super cool just now?
With Grimnir acting like his usual self, (Captain) and company breathe a collective sigh of relief.
Lyria: But if Grimnir can stop Odin now...
Vyrn: Yeah! There shouldn't be any more pointless fights poppin' up like the war between those two countries!
While the crew basks in a newfound sense of hope, Grimnir mulls over his memories.
Odin: Blessed be the path before thee.
Grimnir: (Back then... Odin let me walk away.)
Grimnir: (Even though he had chosen to fulfill his role as a weapon... he still respected my own will.)
Grimnir: Then I'll give him everything I've got!
Having regained his memories alongside his true power, the God of War raises his eyes to the sky with renewed determination.
The chance for a rematch is almost upon him.

Blessed Be the Path

The crew learns from Grimnir that Odin was created to build up the Astrals' forces, and that his subordinate Skuld likely instigated the war between the two countries. Realizing that Odin intends to take control of the Sky Realm, they head to Valhalla to dissuade him, but negotiations break down, and a battle ensues.



Grimnir has overcome Raphael's trial and recovered his original power that had been sealed away.
Meanwhile, with their preparations for war completed, the forces of Valhalla await the coming battle.
Skuld: Lord Odin, your soldiers and weapons have been readied for deployment as planned.
Skuld: We are prepared to invade the moment you issue the order, my lord.
Odin: Well done. Tell me, what is the latest word on the two countries that you have driven to war?
Skuld: Their forces are evenly matched at present, which has resulted in a stalemate.
Skuld: Once we intervene, the fighting should resume.
Odin: I see. Then we will proceed as planned and take advantage of the war to conquer both nations.
Odin: Ever since the Astrals withdrew from the skies, we have continued to gather souls and enhance our military capability.
Odin: And after biding our time for centuries—just as we were poised to seize control of the Sky Realm—who should appear but my other half.
Odin: Is this what the mortals refer to as fate?
Skuld: Lord Odin...
Odin: This battle marks the beginning of my ambition. Failure is not an option. Do you understand?
Skuld: Yes, my lord! This life I once lost is yours to command.
Skuld kneels with her head lowered, recalling Odin's gallant figure on the battlefield where she had breathed her last.
Skuld: Despite our desperate efforts to defend our small country from the constant oppression of other nations, we found ourselves shouldering the blame for its defeat.
Skuld: And in the final battle, we were even abandoned by our king.
Skuld: It is my shame to admit, but when the enemy's blade pierced my chest, what I felt most was a sense of relief.
Skuld: I shall never forget the sight of you descending upon the battlefield in a shower of blood, slashing through the enemy forces with the effort of swatting flies.
Odin: Come to me, proud warrior spirit.
Skuld: From that fateful day when you chose to take me under your wing, I have offered all that I am to you, my lord.
Odin: I see. Then I have faith that you will display that resolve upon the battlefield.
Skuld: You are too kind, my lord. I shall do everything in my power to meet your expectations.
Skuld: (And I shall deliver justice upon Grimnir for betraying Lord Odin's trust and defecting!)
Odin: Very good.
Odin: ...
Turning his attention from Skuld, Odin ruminates over the records and memories of a great many past wars.
Odin: (In the centuries following the War, how many countless conflicts have arisen in the Sky Realm?)
Odin: (Only a small percentage were instigated by the Valkyries under my command for the sake of gathering the souls of warriors.)
Odin: (Although the Astrals have long since departed from the skies, the mountain of corpses resulting from such fierce battles only continues to grow.)
Odin: (Skydwellers are truly foolish creatures. They repeat the same mistakes over and over, learning nothing from history.)
Odin: Thus, I shall fulfill my role. Together with this army of Valhalla, which has been strengthened as a result of their folly.
Odin: The skies must be ruled by the stars.
Elsewhere, Grimnir and the crew work together to develop a strategy for their next confrontation with Odin.
Through Grimnir's recovered memories, they learn of the circumstances surrounding Odin and his ability.
Odin is a primal beast once created by the Astrals for the purpose of enhancing their military might.
He possesses the power to tether the souls of powerful soldiers killed in battle to the mortal realm, using them to bolster his forces.
The chosen souls gather in a hidden country called Valhalla, where they train in preparation for the coming battle.
Grimnir: I think that Skuld person must be a Valkyrie, meaning she's one of Odin's most trusted subordinates.
Vyrn: So she's the puppet master who made those two countries fight in the first place, right?
Grimnir: Most likely. Valhalla is a land of departed warriors. So the most efficient way to expand its forces is to escalate the fighting.
Lyria: Then if we tell the people of each country the truth, won't the war stop?
Grimnir: No, that won't be enough.
Grimnir: Now that I have my memories and power back, I can sense the presence of my other half very clearly.
Grimnir: Odin plans to use his forces to lay waste to both nations himself.
Vyrn: S-seriously?
Grimnir: The army of Valhalla exists to allow the Astrals to rule the skies. In order to fulfill his role...
Grimnir: Odin will launch an offensive to take control of the Sky Realm himself. Defeating those two countries will give him the foothold he needs.
Grimnir: We have no choice but to make our way to Valhalla and defeat Odin while the war is still at a stalemate.
Lyria: But... those poor souls were originally skydwellers too, right?
Lyria: And Odin is really important to you...
Grimnir: Girl in Blue...
Lyria: I think starting a fight is a horrible thing to do! But that goes for us too...
Lyria: Isn't there any way to stop this war without anyone else getting hurt?
Grimnir: Many souls have been robbed of a portion of their memories to turn them into dutiful soldiers. Though there are some that serve of their own free will...
Grimnir: Since they're bound by Odin's power, he has to be the one to release them.
Grimnir: I know you don't want to hurt anyone. If it was possible to thwart Odin's ambitions that way, then I'd be all for it.
Grimnir: But his will is no less than the meaning for his very existence. It'll have to come to blows...
  1. Is there really no other way?

Choose: Is there really no other way?
Grimnir: ...
Grimnir: Actually, wait. Maybe there is...
Vyrn: You get a spark of inspiration, Windy?
Grimnir: Maybe. But... if it fails, you and the crew will be in danger, (Captain)...
  1. I believe in you!

Choose: I believe in you!
Grimnir: (Captain)...
Grimnir: All right. Then I'll make sure I'm well-prepared so I don't betray your trust.
Grimnir: I shall ring down the curtain upon Odin's plot with a plan worthy of the name of the God of War and Tempest Incarnate!
Grimnir: Oh, but this sort of thing shouldn't be decided on the spot! I need to hear what you guys think, or I'll be a nervous wreck!
Vyrn: Sheesh, you're all over the place...
Building on Grimnir's strategy, (Captain) and company discuss their plan to confront Odin.
Once every last detail has been ironed out, they set sail for their destination.
Valhalla, the land where warrior souls gather, hidden from mortal eyes by Odin's magic.
It exists on a small island situated at a high altitude that remains devoid of visitors.
At its entrance, Skuld issues a proclamation to the soldiers in formation before her.
Skuld: The moment of truth is upon us!
Skuld: Now is the time to fulfill the meaning of our existence! Victory is the only option! Offer your lives!
Valhalla Soldiers: Yes, ma'am!
Skuld: Then let us depart! All units, proceed to the harbor and commence boarding!
Valhalla Solider 1: ...!
Lady Skuld, over there! An airship is approaching the island!
Skuld: Those intruders are... Grimnir's companions!
Skuld: Grimnir... You have already betrayed and disheartened my king. Now you dare seek to stand in his way?
Skuld: I shall make you pay! All troops, prepare to fire!
Lyria: Wait, please! Can't we talk this through—
Skuld and the soldiers of Valhalla pay no heed to Lyria's desperate pleas.
Skuld: Talk? Enough of your foolish ramblings.
Skuld: To the proud soldiers of Valhalla, words carry no value! It is the number of corpses that determines the victor!
Vyrn: Well, guess there's nothin' for it...
Vyrn: You're up, Lyria!
Lyria: Okay!
Lyria: Please lend us your power, Tiamat!
Skuld: That is the being they summoned upon their retreat from the previous battle...
Skuld: It must be... a primal beast!
Valhalla Solider 2: We couldn't ask for a better warm-up! Ready the cannons at once!
Skuld: Considering they are daring to challenge Valhalla, it must possess substantial power. But exactly how much remains to be seen...
Skuld: Unit three, prepare the airships for deployment and commandeer the enemy ship! All remaining units, commence bombardment!
Valhalla Solider 1: Fire!
A cannonball soars toward the Grandcypher, but it is repelled by a shield of wind before it can land.
Skuld: Haaah!
Skuld: Tch... These winds are not those of the primal beast alone...
Skuld: This must be Grimnir's doing. The impudence!
Vyrn: Looks like we managed to get their attention!
Lyria: Yeah, but not for long...
Vyrn: The rest is up to you guys! (Captain), Windy!
Grimnir: You have carried out your duties flawlessly—Red Dragon, Girl in Blue.
Grimnir: I will not let your determination go to waste...
Grimnir: Dance, winds!
(Captain) is enveloped by Grimnir's winds and sent soaring into the sky.
Grimnir: The time is ripe to strike! While the enemy's attention is focused on the Girl in Blue!
Grimnir: We will rush the palace from the skies above and confront Odin! Now, onward—to the venue of our final battle!
Odin: So you have come.
Sensing the presence of his other half, Odin looks up to lock eyes with Grimnir as he alights from the skies above.
Grimnir: Odin...
Odin: Your expression is filled with reluctance. Have you not come here to stop me?
Grimnir: I have. But if I could have one wish, it would be for us to join hands once again, just as we did in the past.
Odin: And who chose to brush that hand aside? Do you truly believe such a thing is possible?
Grimnir: I'm still against the war. I just want things between us to go back to the way they were before.
Grimnir: I reread that book by Dostoepsky so many times that it's falling apart. Now I can finally talk with you about it on the same level.
Grimnir: I know you said that you read those books in order to study skydwellers...
Grimnir: But even though I was basically a war machine back then, those silly moments meant the world to me.
Grimnir: Am I the only one who felt that way? Did you see it differently?
Odin: ...
Odin: Seeking to change my mind is a fruitless endeavor. If you wish to stop me, you will have to do so by force.
Odin: You and I have already said our farewells. There is little use in reminiscing about our former relationship.
Odin: Consider this your warning. If you still choose to dwell on the past, then I shall impale you with my spear—together with those precious memories.
Grimnir: Sounds like that's your final answer...
Grimnir: Sorry, (Captain). I guess it was hopeless from the beginning.
Grimnir: It looks like combat is our only recourse. Will you fight beside me as we originally planned?
The captain pats Grimnir's back gently in reply.
Grimnir: (Captain)... Thanks.
Grimnir: Now, Odin! The time has come for the main event! My tempest shall sweep open the curtains on this duel!
Grimnir: I can think of no stage more fitting for our battle than these endless azure skies! Let us take flight from this diminutive diorama!
Grimnir: (Come on, Odin! Take the bait!)
The crew's plan had been to relocate the battlefield high into the skies in order to avoid involving the soldiers.
However...
Odin: Such unconvincing theatrics. I presume you are attempting to lure me away to where my soldiers cannot reach?
Grimnir: ...!
Odin: I see no reason to go along with your scheme.
Odin: Do not expect me to show mercy as I did before. This time, I will see you eliminated.
Odin: Behold the spear of absolute annihilation... Gungnir!

Blessed Be the Path: Scene 2

Grimnir works together with (Captain) to launch a powerful offensive against Odin. The primal beast reminisces about their time fighting side by side, but Grimnir responds that (Captain) is his partner now and sets out to resolve things once and for all.



Odin releases a strike from Gungnir, which slices through the air, speeding mercilessly toward (Captain) and Grimnir.
Odin: This is the end. You will perish, filled with regrets for leaving my side.
Grimnir: The power to unleash that which is forbidden... My true tempest shall pierce the very air and return all things to nothingness!
Grimnir: Howl in havoc... Vortex of the Void!
The Vortex of the Void intercepts Gungnir's blow, sending the energy of both spears rippling through the air like a shock wave.
Grimnir: Now that the seal has been broken, I will not give such an unsightly display as before.
Odin: The weapon that was split from Gungnir... It appears you have recovered the one power able to rival this spear of annihilation.
Odin: But do not get complacent just because you blocked a single blow.
Odin: Strike true, Gungnir!
Grimnir: Howl forth, Vortex of the Void!
No matter how many blows Gungnir unleashes, Grimnir's Vortex of the Void successfully intercepts each and every one.
Grimnir: Even absolute annihilation is nothing before the Vortex of the Void!
Odin: Heh...
Odin: Hahaha! Ah, how long has it been since I felt this way? This thrill in my chest reminds me of the days when I accompanied you into battle.
Odin: Very well! I shall allow myself to be lured. As it just so happens, I had grown weary of sitting on the throne.
Odin: Come, Sleipnir!
Odin: I have granted your desire. My soldiers are no longer within range.
Skuld: Is that... Odin?
Skuld: Damn it! This was all a plan to delay us from rendering our aid!
Skuld attempts to make her way to Odin's side, but Tiamat blocks her path.
Skuld: Argh!
Valhalla Solider 1: Hey! There's Lord Odin!
The soldiers notice the battle taking place overhead, throwing the entire area into confusion.
Vyrn: Looks like it worked!
Lyria: Yeah! Now we just have to trust (Captain) and Grimnir to handle the rest!
Odin: Our encounter this time will be different. I will employ every fiber of my being to send you to your doom.
Grimnir: We finally got him off the ground.
Grimnir: Now it's your turn to shine, (Captain).
Grimnir: If we both go on the offensive together, there's a high chance that we'll be too slow to react to a surprise blow from Gungnir.
Grimnir: So I'll stay on the defensive and do everything I can to provide support while you focus on attacking.
Grimnir: Will you believe in me and face this fight together?
The captain nods, weapon at the ready as a show of unwavering trust.
Grimnir: (Captain)... I've always felt secure fighting by your side. But this time, I feel invincible.
Odin: You seem quite committed to this mortal. But this individual in whom you have placed your faith is no more than a foolish skydweller.
Odin: You shall turn to rust on Gungnir's blade!
Using the winds generated by Grimnir as a foothold, (Captain) gracefully evades Odin's sudden attack.
The captain shifts into offense in an instant, yet Odin's next attack has already begun.
Odin: Too slow! Strike true, Gungnir!
Grimnir: Howl forth, Vortex of the Void!
Even as (Captain)'s sword nearly threads the needle, Odin's reflexes prove to be slightly quicker.
Odin: Oho, your synergy is quite impressive. It reminds me of how we once were, Grimnir.
Grimnir: Me too. But... (Captain) is my partner now.
Grimnir: The time has come to settle this once and for all! I am the God of War and Mad Cyclone, Grrrrrimnir!
Grimnir: I shall scatter your ambitions to the winds and deliver peace to the Sky Realm!

Blessed Be the Path: Scene 3

(Captain) and Grimnir emerge victorious, and Odin agrees to avoid inciting any more conflicts as a condition of his defeat. The war between the two countries is brought to an end, and (Captain) vows to help Grimnir stop Odin if a similar situation ever arises in the future.



Odin: Behold the spear of absolute annihilation... Gungnir!
Grimnir: I think not! Vortex of the Vo—
Odin: Checkmate.
Odin releases his stance, interrupting his devastating blow to slip past Grimnir.
He then closes in on his true target, who is still following through with a previous attack—(Captain).
Grimnir: ...!
(Captain)!
Odin: I must admit that you fared quite well for a mere mortal.
Odin: Return to dust and scatter into the skies, unnamed skydweller!
Though not his ultimate attack, Odin catches both of his opponents by surprise with a devastating blow.
Odin: What!
However, the captain dodges it by a hair's breadth.
Grimnir: Magnificent as always, (Captain). I won't let this opportunity go to waste!
Grimnir: My true tempest shall pierce the very air and return all things to nothingness! Howl in havoc... Vortex of the Void!
Odin: Nrrrgh!
Overwhelmed by the ultimate power of Grimnir's Vortex of the Void, Odin crashes helplessly to the ground.
Odin: Ngh...
Grimnir: This battle has been decided. You can no longer stand.
Odin: How... How did that mortal evade? From that position, it should have been nigh impossible to react in time...
Grimnir: That was a trap. We were sure that if we provided you with an opening, you wouldn't fail to take advantage of it.
Grimnir: Part of the strategy was for me to go on the defensive in order to make you think that I wouldn't join in the attack.
Grimnir: Well, it was all (Captain)'s plan though, not mine!
Grimnir: I was pretty nervous when (Captain) offered to be the decoy, but I'm glad it worked out!
Odin: Decoy? You had such faith as to wager our battle's outcome on the word and skill of that skydweller?
Grimnir: Because I knew that (Captain) believed in me.
Grimnir: Think of it as proof of our bond! You could say that we came out on top because of our trust in each other!
Odin: Trust...
Odin: A relationship built not on control, but on mutual trust and cooperation...
Odin: I suppose now that I have suffered defeat at your hands, I must accept that such a thing is indeed possible.
Grimnir: It certainly is. We're not trapped in a relationship where one side is dominant over the other.
Grimnir: We can search for a path to peace on equal footing with the skydwellers in the same way. So please—
Odin: You wish for me to cooperate with the skydwellers? That is simply out of the question.
Odin: Though the Astrals may have withdrawn from the Sky Realm, my role remains the same. This power exists for the stars to rule over the skies.
Grimnir: Odin...
Odin: But I have been defeated by you. Thus, as a god of war, I shall submit to the command of the victor.
Odin snaps his fingers.
Valhalla Solider 1: Huh? Wait, why was I fighting here again?
The soldiers regain their memories, freed from the feelings of allegiance instilled within them by Odin's power.
Odin: Now my army is no more. Their souls will pass on to where they are meant to go.
Skuld: Lord Odin! Are you unhurt?
Valhalla Solider 2: Our lord is in danger! We must protect him at all costs!
Odin: What are you doing here?
Skuld: Our duty! After all, you are our king!
Odin: My power should have been lifted... Have you forgotten that I seek to rule over skydwellers just like yourselves?
Skuld: Rest assured, the souls who desired to depart from this world have already done so. We remain here of our own volition.
Skuld: A king exists to rule. And we wish to serve under you, my lord.
Skuld: You acknowledged us as proud warriors and bestowed upon us a place to belong even after death.
Skuld: You have trained us and provided us with sustenance. If this is an example of what your reign would encompass, then we wish nothing more than to be ruled by you.
Skuld: We have the utmost faith that you will build a great nation.
Odin: ...
Vyrn: Hey, (Captain)! Windy! You guys okay?
As the soldiers address their king, Vyrn and Lyria come rushing over to (Captain) and Grimnir.
Grimnir: Red Dragon! Girl in Blue! I'm so glad you two are safe!
Lyria: Yeah, we're fine! And the two countries that were at war have agreed to a cease-fire!
Before heading to Valhalla, the crew had visited both nations to explain that the current war was all a farce...
As well as to persuade them to stop fighting.
Grimnir: Hey, Odin. What do you say you give up on all this causing wars and invading the Sky Realm stuff?
Grimnir: War only leads to tragedy. Let's atone for our sins and make a fresh start—together with the skydwellers.
Grimnir: The Astrals are gone. We no longer have a duty to simply obey as mindless weapons.
Grimnir: We can change. After all, you admitted yourself that I already have.
Odin: ...
Odin: I still fail to comprehend your logic. Merely listening to your idealistic rhetoric fills me with disgust.
Grimnir: Odin...
Grimnir: (Is it really no use? Is there no hope of us ever understanding each other?)
Odin: But I suppose I have no choice.
Odin: The words of the vanquished carry no worth. We have no course but to comply with the wishes of the conqueror.
Grimnir: ...!
Then that means...
Odin: But remember this. Each and every time the skydwellers engage in foolish behavior, my army only grows in strength.
Grimnir: I'll keep that in mind.
Odin: Come, Skuld. There are unresolved matters that require our attention.
Skuld: Yes, my lord!
Grimnir: ...
Odin: ...
Blessed be the path before thee...
Grimnir: ...!
Grimnir: Blessed be the path before thee...
Grimnir and Odin speak no further.
But their parting this time carries no air of finality.
(Captain) and the crew have successfully thwarted Odin's intentions.
After returning to the ship, they gaze up at the night sky and reflect on the fierce battle behind them.
Grimnir: Whew! What a day, huh?
Grimnir: I can't believe we actually managed to convince Odin! He's always been about as stubborn as a mule.
Grimnir: (Captain), Red Dragon, Girl in Blue... Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.
Vyrn: Meh, we didn't really do anything!
Lyria: Yeah, it only came together because you and (Captain) worked so hard!
  1. It's all thanks to you.
  2. I only helped a little.

Choose: It's all thanks to you.
Grimnir: Aww, you too, (Captain)? You're going to make me blush!

Choose: I only helped a little.
Grimnir: Naw, don't be so modest! I don't know what I would have done without you, (Captain)!
Continue 1
Grimnir: I'm really glad I was able to reconcile with Odin. Or, well... I don't know if you can call that a reconciliation per se...
Grimnir: But either way, I got to talk to him again. So I'm incredibly grateful for all your help.
Grimnir: Nothing says that Odin won't try to start another war someday.
Grimnir: But if he does, I'll just have to stop him again.
Grimnir: Will you help me again if that happens?
  1. You can count on it!

Choose: You can count on it!
Grimnir: Heh! Thanks, (Captain).
Grimnir: If Odin can form a trusting relationship like ours with a skydweller too someday, then surely...
As Grimnir turns his eyes back heavenward, (Captain) follows suit to gaze up at the dazzling stars overhead.
Reflecting on this very picture of peace, the captain makes a silent wish—to continue protecting these skies, no matter what storms may come.
