A Gentle Soul
While resting in a town, (Captain) and company run into Hazen, a priest loved by the residents. After he hears the reason for (Captain)'s journey, he joins the crew to support them in their endeavors.
During his travels with (Captain), Hazen realizes how few good instructors there are in the world.
He wants to help lost souls and therefore decides to travel alone for a while to enlighten others.
Vyrn: Hey, (Captain). Let’s take a break here!
On their long journey, (Captain) and company stop by an island to rest.
They visit the island's largest city to do some sightseeing.
(Captain) and company visit a town to rest.
Vyrn: Huh? Look at that crowd.
Vyrn is looking at the plaza, where tons of people have gathered.
Vyrn is looking at the plaza, where a crowd of people have gathered.
At their center is a large man with a jovial smile.
Huh? That guy over there...
Townswoman: Thank you. We once again owe it all to you, Hazen!
Hazen: No, it wasn't me. All I did was encourage you.
Hazen: You did it all on your own. There's no need to thank me.
Child 1: Hey! Guess what, Mr. Hazen! My teacher said something nice about me today!
Hazen: Ha-ha! Oh, I see! You're very smart, aren't you?
Child 2: Hey! Let's play, Hazen!
Child 1: No fair! I wanna play too!
Hazen: Ha-ha. All right. Why don't we all play together?
Oh? Preacher Man is super popular!
Lyria: Yes! It's incredible how much the townspeople trust him!
Hazen: Huh? I don't think I've seen you lot before. Are you perhaps tourists?
Hazen: I'm Hazen, a priest. I'm on a journey to spread the teachings of the wind god.
Hazen: Nice to meet you.
Hazen introduces himself amiably, and the crew does the same.
Vyrn: Hey, this Hazen guy is crazy popular, huh?
Huh? Isn't that Hazen? He's so popular!
Hazen: Huh? That voice... Oh! Lyria! (Captain)! And Vyrn as well!
With a jovial smile, Hazen waves his hand.
(Captain) walks up to him in response.
Hazen: It's been a long time, hasn't it? I'm glad to see you again.
Lyria: Yes! Me too! I didn't think I'd ever see you again.
Vyrn: Yeah! You're crazy popular, aren't you Hazen?
Townswoman: Of course! He's saved so many of us!
Hazen: Hey now, stop that. All I did was to give you guys the encouragement you needed to walk the paths you're meant to.
Townswoman: But Hazen... Your very presence here has breathed new life into our town.
Townswoman: You're every bit as wonderful as the rumors say!
Hazen: Hey now... Ha-ha. Aw, shucks.
Vyrn: Wow. You're practically a celebrity, Hazen.
Well, I spend my days traveling the world, touching the lives of so many people. People started to recognize me before I knew it.
Well, I've been continuing to travel since I left you, touching the lives of so many people. People started to recognize me before I knew it.
Vyrn: That makes sense.
But I didn't know priests go on journeys. I figured you all lock yourselves up in temples or whatever!
But I didn't know priests go on journeys. I assumed you all lock yourselves up in temples or whatever!
Hazen: Hmm... Who can say? Maybe we do.
Vyrn: Huh? But you're a priest! Can't you be more clear?
Ha-ha! Aw, don't be mad. I certainly spread the teachings of a god, but I originally served in the militar—
Ha-ha! Aw, don't be mad. I certainly spread the teachings of a god, but I originally served in the mil—
Child 1: Hey, Hazen! You done talking yet?
Child 2: Heh-heh. Let's play already!
Hazen: Hold on. I promise I'll play with you later. Can you wait until then?
Child 2: Hmm... Okay! I'll wait!
Hazen: Great. You're a good kid.
Child 1: Ha-ha! Well, I'll be at the park, Pops!
Child 1: Oh no! Um... I messed up again. Sorry, Hazen.
Vyrn: Come on! For a second there I thought that was your kid, Hazen.
Hazen: Ha-ha! Even I forget that I'm not really their father sometimes!
Vyrn: What? Seriously?
Good grief... He really doesn't seem like he's all there.
Good grief... You're as nutty as always, Hazen.
Lyria: Hee-hee! That's right!
Vyrn: Huh? What's wrong, Lyria?
Lyria: Oh, I was just thinking that Hazen really does seem fatherly.
Hazen smiles jovially and pats Lyria on the head.
Hazen: If you ever need a helping hand, come see me any time.
Hazen: I'll always be there for you.
Lyria: Whoa! It just slipped out. Heh-heh.
Hazen: Ha-ha! I don't mind.
Still, you're very brave, (Captain).
Hazen: Leading a crew at your age... I imagine that's not something you do on a whim. What led to a decision like that?
Hazen looks concerned, so (Captain) gives him a simple rundown of the journey so far.
Hazen: Oho... Children like yourselves, braving such a dangerous journey alone...
Still, (Captain). You have grown strong while we were apart. You look gallant.
Vyrn: Heh-heh! We've escaped from the jaws of death so many times!
Hazen: Hey now. That's nothing to be proud of.
Vyrn: What? Why not? What's the harm in it?
Hazen: Children shouldn't be flirting with death. Doing so might be brave, but it's awfully close to reckless. So you must never let your guard down.
Hazen: There's nothing wrong with having pride, but parading it around like that is a sign of arrogance.
Vyrn: Tch! I guess you might have a point.
Hazen: And yet I can see how hard you've all worked to get to this point.
With a jovial smile, Hazen gently pats both (Captain) and Vyrn on the head.
Vyrn: Heh-heh! You know, you really are like a dad, Hazen!
Speaking of dads, you started your journey after receiving a letter from yours, right?
Speaking of dads, there's something I've been meaning to ask you for a long time, (Captain).
Hazen: You started your journey after receiving a letter from your dad, right?
(Captain) nods and describes the letter in detail.
Hazen: Hmm... I see. It sounds like he's putting you through trials to make you stronger.
Hazen: He certainly seems to have much confidence in you.
Hazen: But that doesn't mean I can condone what he has done. Putting your child in danger is wrong.
Hazen: But you're dead set on trying to get to Estalucia even though it might not even exist, aren't you?
(Captain) nods resolutely.
Hazen: Hmm... If that's how it is, then I'll help you out.
Vyrn: But what about your own journey, Hazen?
Really? But what about your journey to enlighten others?
Hazen: I've traveled through enough lands for now. It's time for a little break.
Hazen: And it would be good to help lost souls while traveling through the skies with you all.
Hazen: I'd also like to have a word with your dad.
Hazen: At any rate, I think we'll be able to do a lot of good together.
Choose: All right!
- All right!
Hazen: That's the spirit! I've got your back!
Vyrn: Heehee, that's good to hear!Choose: Um...
Hey! What do you mean by that?
Vyrn: What? You think Hazen would be scary when he's angry?
Vyrn: Um... Is that the only reason you don't want him on the crew?
(Captain) nods with a serious expression.
Vyrn: Ha-ha! How childish!
Lyria: Hey! There's no way that someone as nice as him could be scary.
Hazen: Ha-ha! On the contrary, I'm plenty scary when I'm mad! I never pull my punches!
Hazen: But if you're good kids, I won't get mad, and no one will get whacked.
You're just scared of his fists, right, (Captain)?
Vyrn: And I can see why. Hazen's super-duper scary he starts throwing punches, and they hurt like heck.
Hazen: Ha-ha! Sorry about that! It's a bad habit I sort of picked up in my younger days.
Hazen: But if you're good kids, no one will get whacked.
Lyria: Yeah! Me, Vyrn, and (Captain) are always good, so everything will be fine!
Hazen: Ha-ha! That's right! You've got nothing to worry about!Continue 1
Vyrn: Then let's hurry back to the airship!
Hazen: Can you wait just a little while longer?
Hazen: I promised to play with the children after all. Let's head out after I'm done.
Hazen: Why don't you all play with them too?
Lyria: That sounds fun! As long as you think it's okay.
The crew accompanies Hazen to play with the children until evening.
Hazen then heads for the sky with the crew even though the townsfolk hate to see him go.
A Foul Soul
While heading to a village to handle a job, Vyrn asks Hazen about his god. Hazen reveals that he knows little about his god and was actually inspired to leave the army and become a priest by a song written to praise the god.
Hazen and (Captain)'s crew receives a request from a village one day.
The client apparently wants to discuss some troubles with Hazen, a renowned priest.
The crew accepts and starts heading to the client's village.
Vyrn: Hey, Hazen! I was wonderin' about something.
Vyrn: What sorta god do you believe in?
Hazen: Hmm... I don't know. I wonder that myself.
Vyrn: Huh? Whaddya mean you don't know?
Hazen: Well, all I know is that the god presides over wind. I also know a song that praises the god.
Vyrn: Sigh... And you call yourself a priest.
Lyria: Um... Why'd you become a priest, Hazen?
Hazen: You see, when I was in the military, I heard a song that praised the god of wind and was deeply impressed.
Hazen: It really made me consider how important guidance is.
Hazen: And after thinking about it for a while, I left the army and became a priest. I wanted to guide as many lost souls as I could to the right path.
Lyria: Um... I hear you talking about the military sometimes, but were you really a soldier before?
Hazen: I was. But I didn't just fight in the front lines of the battlefield. I also...
Hazen: Hmm... I actually think I'd just scare you guys if I told you this story. I'll refrain.
Vyrn: Hmm... Hazen, an old soldier. I can almost see it.
Hazen: Ha-ha... It's fine. It's all in the past now. We're almost to the village.
A Foul Soul: Scene 2
The client wants the crew to deal with some agents who won't stop freeloading off the village. When Hazen finds out the freeloaders are actually some of his subordinates from his military days, he decides to discipline them for losing their way.
(Captain) and company reach the client's village.
The client shows up after a while with a gloomy look on his face.
Client: Welcome... Thank you for traveling all the way out here and accepting my request.
Hazen: You seem very troubled. Please tell us what's wrong, and we'll assist if we can.
Client: You see, a group of agents arrived in our village one day and asked us to share our food supplies.
Client: So we offered them some, but their demands didn't stop after that. I told them we couldn't afford to give them any more...
Villager: And they threatened us. They said they'd attack the village if we don't hand over our food.
Hazen: Hmm... That is quite terrible. To repay kindness with treachery...
Hazen: Your actions in contrast were very compassionate. To think you offered food to agents you've never met.
Hazen: You have very kind souls, and I admire your benevolence. We'll resolve this problem at once.
Lyria: Yeah! You can leave it to us!
Villager: Oh! It'd really mean the world to us.
Villager: Aahh! They're here! It's them!
Hazen: Speak of the devil, huh? Time to give these miscreants a lecture on—
The moment Hazen sees the agents, he gasps and freezes in place.
Vyrn: Hey... Is something wrong, Hazen?
Hazen: What in the world are they doing?
Hazen: What the hell are you doing? You scum!
Agent 1: Huh? What are you squawking about, geezer? Outta my way.
Hazen: Have you really forgotten me?
Agent 2: Huh? That voice... I know it from somewhere.
Hazen: I'll ask just one more time.
Hazen: Have you empty-headed stains forgotten me?
Agent 3: Wha? Instructor Hazen, sir? You look so different...
Hazen: So you finally remembered? You shameless scum!
Agent 2: Eek! Hold on, sir! There's a reason for this and—
Hazen: I couldn't care less! Ready your weapon, (Captain)!
Hazen: These imbeciles have earned themselves some punishment!
A Foul Soul: Scene 3
Hazen does his best to help the wounded agents get back on the right path. With the job complete, he confesses to (Captain) that he worries about one day losing his way as well and asks the captain to help him if that day ever comes.
Hazen continues to glare at the wounded agents, his face contorted in rage.
Hazen: What pathetic excuse for thinking drove you guys to do this?
Agent 1: Eek! I'm sorr—
Hazen: You're sorry all right! Is that any way to address your superior?
The moment Hazen says the words, the atmosphere becomes palpably more tense.
The agents immediately straighten up and stand in a line.
Agents: Sir! Yes, sir! We are very sorry, sir!
Hazen: What did I try—and apparently fail—to teach you? Answer me!
Agents: Sir! Yes, sir! You taught us to uphold justice, sir!
Hazen: That's right. And what is justice?
Agents: Sir! Yes, sir! Justice is what you can hold fast to without questioning yourself, sir!
Hazen: And what do your vile actions have to do with justice! Smile and say cheese, curs!
Hazen punctuates his yell by delivering a skull-shaking haymaker to each agent.
Lyria: Whoa... They're wearing iron helmets...
Vyrn: Yikes... They're dented iron helmets now.
Hazen: Does it hurt?
Agent 2: Ugh... No, sir. Not at all, sir.
Hazen: It's fine. Be honest.
Agent 2: Then, um... It hurts like crazy.
Hazen: That's right. It hurts, doesn't it? It hurts me as well. My fist... and my heart.
Agent 3: Wha? Instructor Hazen, sir? Are you crying?
Hazen: I love all of you, but you've strayed from the path of justice and committed such atrocities. My heart aches to think of it.
Hazen: But I left the army before guiding you to the right path. This is my fault.
Agent 1: Ugh... Instructor Hazen... You really care about us that much?
Agent 3: We were abandoned by our country and deprived of any way to buy our own food.
Agent 1: Yeah, we didn't know what we were doing anymore, and we ended up resorting to this... Sob.
Hazen: I'm sure that was tough, but what you've done cannot be forgiven.
Hazen: Never forget those tears. Learn from your actions.
Hazen: People shed tears. When we are sad, when it hurts... I cry, you cry, and so do the people of this village.
Hazen: Ask yourselves once more. What is your justice? Which path must you tread? I know each and every one of you, and I'm sure that you know what you should do now.
Hazen smiles softly and holds the agents close to him.
Vyrn: Um... I guess Hazen really was a military guy.
Lyria: But no matter what he is, soldier or priest, he's still a very kind person.
Vyrn: Yeah, you're right. But let's make sure to never make him angry.
Lyria: Ha-ha... Y-yeah.
The agents have a change of heart after this incident. They not only stop harassing the village but decide to help take care of the villagers' livestock and farms.
The villagers welcome them with open arms, partially due to Hazen's wishes.
On the way back to the airship, Hazen pulls (Captain) aside.
Hazen: There are times when people step off the right path, but I'll be by your side to make sure you can keep moving forward.
Hazen: Though I'm ashamed to admit it, I sometimes stray from the path as well. You saw what the soldiers I trained did.
Hazen: If you ever see me starting to stray, you must guide me back to the right path.
Choose: Sir! Yes, sir!
- Sir! Yes, sir!
- I'm not sure that I can...
Hazen: Ha-ha! I guess I deserved that.
Hazen: But I'm glad you understand.
Hazen: Heh-heh. I'm counting on you, (Captain).Choose: I'm not sure that I can...
Hazen: Nonsense. If anyone can do it, it's you.
Hazen: And there's no need to think of it as a burden. I just want us to rely on each other.
Hazen: I'll do anything I can to help you walk the right path.Continue 1
Hazen gently smiles and pats (Captain)'s head.
(Captain) sees the depth of Hazen's trust in his kind expression.
The Truth Behind the Truth
While (Captain) and company relax near some hot springs, they hear Soriz has been arrested for peeping. It turns out that the other large man in their party, Hazen, had unknowingly startled some bathers while trying to save some baby birds, framing Soriz for a crime he did not commit.
(Captain) and company take some time off in a hot-spring town famous for its open-air baths.
But one afternoon it seems that trouble has bubbled up from the murky waters.
Vyrn: What! Soriz has been arrested?
Lyria: Oh dear... And they said he made quite a scene as they took him away.
Vyrn: Unbelievable. He wasn't caught peeping or something, was he?
Hazen: Hmm... In any case we would do well to speak with the local officials about it.
So (Captain) and the crew go off to the security post where Soriz is being held.
Soriz: Hold on, now! How many times have I gotta tell ya? You've got it all wrong!
The moment the crew arrives they can already hear Soriz's shouts filling the air.
Officer 1: How much longer are you gonna go runnin' your mouth? You think we're just gonna believe you or somethin'?
Officer 2: Hmm. If we're not going to take him for his word, then we should just leave him here to rot.
Soriz: You scumbags. What's it gonna take for you to get it? Oh good, the reinforcements have arrived!
Soriz: I'm in serious hot water here. These guys think I've been gawking at people while they're bathin'!
Vyrn: That's rough. But... you didn't do it, right?
Soriz: Lizard... If I said I did something, then I did it. But if I said I didn't do it, then I didn't do it!
Soriz: Heh! I'm an honest man. And you darn well know it!
Vyrn: Yeah... I guess you're right! You're not one to go makin' up stories!
Soriz: Heheh! It's like I've been tellin' ya, officers!
Officer 1: Look here, lizard. We can't exactly take your word for it. You weren't even there.
Vyrn: What'd you call me? I ain't no lizard!
Lyria: Oh no... Now what do we do?
With the conversation at a standstill, Hazen decides to step forward and try his hand at speaking with the officers.
Hazen: I believe Soriz's account to be true. He's a man of good nature and would never attempt to deceive anyone.
Hazen: In other words if he's saying he didn't do it, then that is surely the truth.
Hazen: I can vouch for the innocence of this man.
Soriz: Thanks, Hazen. I'm lucky to have such good friends!
Officer 2: But I'm afraid not even the word of a priest is enough to set this man free.
Soriz: Why, you! You just don't get it, do ya? And now you're not even gonna believe a priest?
Vyrn: Hey, Soriz, Hazen's puttin' himself on the line here. So just try to stay calm...
Hazen: Hmm. Where does that leave us now? I suppose that means we'll have to capture the real culprit ourselves.
Officer 1: What? What are you talkin' about? The culprit is right here!
Hazen: No. From what we've just heard, it seems you didn't even catch Soriz in the act.
Officer 2: Yes, that much is true. We received word of questionable activity in the area. When we arrived at the scene, this man was standing around suspiciously.
Officer 2: And that is why we brought him here.
Soriz: Tch! You arrested me just cuz you heard some big guy was standing around looking fishy? And you call yourselves officers...
Officer 1: You got some nerve, pal! Then why were you standing around like that?
Soriz: What? That's every man's dream, ain't it?
Vyrn: Quit it, you two! You're givin' me a headache!
Hazen: Very well, then. I hereby vow in the name of the gods that we will find the real culprit.
Officer 2: I see. In that case I suppose we could give you a chance.
Officer 1: B-but boss! That's a little too generous, don'tcha think?
Officer 2: Though I do think this man is guilty, if a priest is willing to go so far as to vow by the gods, I'd say we can at least give them a shot.
Hazen: We are in your debt.
Soriz: Now it's time to find the real bad guy! I'll go show them how to get to the bath, so you two sit and wait right here!
With that the crew heads out to the rocky-mountain hot spring to find the true culprit.
As they walk through the mountain pass, Soriz enthusiastically slaps Hazen on the back.
Soriz: Hah hah hah! You really saved my skin back there, Hazen! I owe ya one!
Hazen: Soriz... You're always doing such strange things, it's easy for people to misinterpret them.
Hazen: I will help you to change your old ways.
Lyria: Wow... You're really putting your heart into this!
Vyrn: I'm sure you can do it, Hazen!
Soriz: Heh heh. If you think you can change my passion for women, go ahead and try!
Vyrn: Hey! Don't act so proud of that!
Soriz: Hah hah hah! If I see somethin' good, I've just gotta check it out! I'm just livin' the dream!
Vyrn: I guess some things might never change... Haha...
But just then Hazen stops dead in his tracks, putting everyone on alert.
Lyria: Huh? Hazen, what's wrong?
Vyrn: Are there monsters?
Hazen: Hmm... Soriz, is the open-air bath you were talking about near here?
Soriz: Yeah. There are some stairs that head into the cliffside. The bath is just down below there, hehe.
Vyrn: You seem awfully relaxed about this whole thing...
Soriz: Gehehe. Just lean over the edge a little and you can get a nice look...
Soriz: Haha! Whaddya think? Isn't that the greatest?
Seeing the bliss in Soriz's face, Hazen turns ghastly pale.
Vyrn: What's wrong? Why're you goin' all quiet on us?
Hazen: Vyrn, just... trust me for a second.
Vyrn: Huh? Whaddya mean?
Hazen: Soriz, when exactly did those men catch you?
Soriz: Uh... Right before the sun went down! If you're gonna look, that's the best time after all!
Hazen: Ack.... Err... (What have I done?)
Lyria: What's the matter? If you're not feeling well, we can go back to the ship!
Hazen clutches his head tightly, unable to hear Lyria's kind words.
Hazen: (Aaahhh! Why me?)
That same sunny afternoon, Hazen had gone for a walk through the mountainside. However in the middle of his stroll he heard something unexpected.
It was the sound of crying baby birds.
Hazen: Hmm? What's going on?
Hazen lifted up his head to get a better listen. He realized the sound was coming from a spot by the cliffside.
Following the sound of the birds, Hazen soon spotted their nest.
Hazen: Hah hah hah. What manner of bird would nest in a place like this?
It was then that Hazen noticed the cracked rock face where the nest was resting. The massive fracture in the rock could send the nest tumbling down the cliffside at any time.
Hazen: Not to fear, my little friends. I'll move you to a safer location.
With a gentle voice and a steady grasp, Hazen reached out and carefully moved the nest.
Little did he realize that in doing so he had startled the women bathing in the hot spring below. He was so focused on his task that he hadn't heard a thing.
Soriz: Hah hah hah! I get it now... So when they said they spotted a large man, they were really talkin' about you, Hazen!
Hazen: What! I wasn't peeping! I was merely helping those poor little birds!
Soriz: Hah. There's nothin' to worry about! You should've just told us the truth from the beginning! You're a sly one, Hazen.
Hazen: Hold on now! I'm not that kind of person!
Soriz: Priest or not, a man's still a man! And every man just wants to enjoy his life!
Soriz: Hah hah hah! You're a stray little sheep, aren'tcha! To think it was you this whole time!
Hazen: Lyria, Vyrn. This is all just a big mix-up! You understand, don't you?
Lyria: Uh... Yeah!
Hazen: Oh no. You didn't sound too sure of that...
Vyrn: She's just tellin' ya to relax. We know what really happened. And while we're at it, we'd better go apologize.
Soriz: You're right. We found the real troublemaker. And that means I'm getting off scot-free!
Hazen: Hey! I said I didn't do anything! It's just a big misunderstanding!
Hazen's flustered outcry echoes across the mountainside. Soriz gives him a big smile and a pat on the back as they return to town together.
After arriving back at the security post, Soriz explains everything. Hanging his head in shame, Hazen apologizes for all the confusion and trouble he had inadvertently caused.
