The Little Lady's Secret
Lately (Captain) and the crew have been worried about Io because she repeatedly sneaks out of the ship and comes back injured. When they follow Io, they find out she's been practicing her magic against monsters.
Rackam: Time to spill it, Io. How could you come back all beat up like this? What happened?
Io: None of your beeswax! Now leave me alone!
Rackam: You really think I can do that? I mean, you sneak out on your own and come back this late.
Rackam: On top of that, you're all battered and bruised! (Captain)'s been worried too. C'mon, kid, we just wanna help.
Katalina: What's wrong, (Captain)? Rackam and Io, too. You look so serious. Did something happen?
Lyria: Oh no! You're hurt, Io! We have to get you treated!
Io: I'm fine! This is nothing! There's really nothing for you to worry about.
Katalina: Hey! Wait, Io!
She got away... What happened?
Rackam: Don't ask me... I try to show my concern and she gets mad and tells me to leave her alone. Maybe she's in her rebellious phase?
Katalina: I see... I'll watch out for her tomorrow. (Captain), it'll be nice if you can help.
Vyrn: Good thing Io likes you two so much!
Lyria: Hey, I'm good friends with Io too! I wish she would talk to me if something's bothering her...
Vyrn: So this is where she's been sneaking off to every morning!
Katalina: I can't believe she was practicing her magic in a place like this... Now that I think about it, Io's always wanted to learn flight magic.
Vyrn: But why does she have to be so secretive about it? I mean, if all she wants to do is train, we can help no problem!
Lyria: Shhh! Quiet down or she'll notice us!
Vyrn: Oops, sorry! But training by yourself in a monster-filled place like this is a pretty risky move.
Vyrn: See what I mean? Some are coming right now!
Katalina: We can't just sit around and do nothing! (Captain), we have to help her!
The Little Lady's Secret: Scene 2
When the crew finds that Io has been sneaking off to try to learn to fly, Lyria tells of a talisman that grants wishes. The crew heads to town to find the talisman, but monsters stand in their way.
Io: How dare you follow me! Even I have a few secrets I don't want people to know about!
Vyrn: We said we're sorry! But if it weren't for (Captain), you'd be monster chow right now!
Io: Oh, be quiet! I could have handled a few piddly monsters like that on my own!
Io: Or what? Are you trying to say that a mage who can't fly can't possibly beat any monsters?
Katalina: Io, forgive us for our thoughtlessness. We apologize for hurting your pride by following you.
Katalina: But also try to understand that it's normal to worry about friends who come back wounded.
Lyria: We all care about you so much, Io! We want to help whenever anything bothers you!
Io: Katalina, Lyria...
Vyrn: (Captain)'s worried about you too. Just talk to us if something's on your mind! At least give us a chance to try to help.
Io: (Captain)... I'm sorry. It's just that I really want to learn to fly.
Io: I don't want people to know I can't even though I'm a mage.
Lyria: Say, Io! I just remembered an amazing rumor I heard about a talisman!
Io: A talisman?
Lyria: Yes! The shopkeeper said that if you hold onto it, any wish you make will come true!
Io: Really? Just by carrying it? Are you positive?
Vyrn: Hold up! That sounds way too good to be—
Io: I want it! Where's the shop? That talisman's mine!
Katalina: She was practically in tears earlier, and now she's smiling again. Ha-ha. Let's get to town.
Vyrn: Oh brother, kids these days. Oh? It looks like some monsters are blocking our way to town.
Io: (Captain)! Let's beat these monsters quick so I can go get that talisman!
The Little Lady's Secret: Scene 3
A man falsely accuses Io of damaging the talisman and demands reparations, but he turns out to be a wanted con artist. When he's exposed, he sends monsters after (Captain) and company.
Io: This place looks pretty run-down for such a big town.
Katalina: A lot of these people look pretty shady as well. I get the feeling they're sizing us up.
Katalina: Not to mention the wanted posters all over town. Hm... An organization of con artists...
Vyrn: That talisman seemed pretty suspicious to begin with! You don't think the con men are selling those things, do ya?
Lyria: Oh! I found the shopkeeper who told me about the talisman!
Io: Yay! Now I can learn to fly! Hey! Mister!
Katalina: Io, wait up! She sure took off in a hurry... I hope nothing happens to her...
Katalina: Hm? I swear I've seen that man somewhere before...
Vyrn: Katalina! We got trouble! (Captain) says that man looks like the guy on the wanted poster!
Io: W-wait a second! I didn't know that talisman was so expensive!
Merchant: What? Your ignorance is no excuse, little girl! Do you have any idea how much this costs? You'll have to pay for it!
Katalina: What's the matter, Io? What's this all about?
Io: Katalina! I was just looking at the talisman... and it tore a little...
Merchant: Hey, do you know this sniveling brat? Don't tell me you've ruined my merchandise and you can't even pay for it.
Merchant: What she ruined was really expensive! It wasn't some scrap of paper you can just find lying around! How are you going to make it up to me?
Katalina: Is this how you run your scams? You seem to be the con artist from the wanted posters.
Io: Katalina? What's going on?
Katalina: You advertise something that doesn't exist, price it ridiculously, and hit doubtful customers with false accusations and demands for reparations.
Merchant: Heh-heh... Looks you found me out! Of course, being dumb enough to fall for this is the real crime, not the con itself. Get it, little dummy?
Io: But... So the talisman that grants wishes isn't real?
Io: How dare you trample a little girl's dreams! I'll make you pay!
Merchant: Shut up! What are a bunch of women and kids going to do? I'll take you out instead!
Vyrn: He sent monsters after us! (Captain), be careful!
The Little Lady's Secret: Scene 4
Io regrets trying to count on some talisman, but she feels better once Katalina praises her work ethic. She resumes training, looking forward to the day she'll learn to fly.
Vyrn: Heh! You call that a fight? Let's hand this punk over to the officials!
Katalina: Io, Lyria, it's hard to see you two looking so down...
Lyria: But I... I disappointed Io...
Io: It's not your fault, Lyria. It's my fault for trying to take a shortcut by relying on some talisman.
Katalina: No, the only one at fault is that con artist. You two did nothing wrong. Besides...
Katalina: Io, you're not going to give up your dream because of this. I know you.
Io: What do you mean?
Katalina: You're a hard worker and you always try your hardest. Despite how small you are, you are considerate of others. And you also have a strong heart that can stand up to any hardship.
Katalina: You're kind and smart... Io, I know what a wonderful young woman you are.
Io: I'm nothing special. And don't call me small.
Katalina: Forgive me for forgetting myself in the presence of a lady.
Katalina: Even if you can't fly now, you have more than enough wonderful strengths to make up for that, Io.
Lyria: Huh? Hee-hee. Your face is all red, Io. Are you embarrassed?
Io: Of course not! It's not like I'm some child who needs compliments to be happy!
Lyria: Hey! (Captain), look! Io is floating!
Io: Hey, you're right! I'm floating!
Vyrn: Ha-ha! Awesome! Looks like you got the hang of it!
Vyrn: It won't be long until you can really fly, Io!
Io: (Captain), just you wait! I'll be a mighty flying mage soon enough!
Io: I'm just itching to start training... Let's get to it!
Thanks to (Captain) and company, Io becomes just a little less stubborn. It's a small step forward for her toward a great dream.
And the day is fast approaching when the world will finally see a smiling Io flying through the azure skies.
Picking the Perfect Present
Ryan enlists Io's help to choose a birthday gift for his sister. They find the perfect hair clip, but it is broken by a thief. Io offers up some of her own accessories for spare parts and instructs Ryan on how to fix it. In the end, his gift is even more personal for it.
One day aboard the Grandcypher, (Captain) and the others find Ryan pacing the deck.
Vyrn: Hey, Ryan, what's up with you? You're all twitchy.
Ryan: Oh, hey, Vyrn... It's no big deal.
Lyria: You know you can talk to us about anything, right? Even if it's not a big deal!
Ryan: Well... Actually, you know what? That would really help!
Ryan decides to share what's been troubling him.
Ryan: Well, um... You guys know my sister back home? Her birthday's coming up soon and I have no idea what I should get her.
Vyrn: So that's what's eating you.
Vyrn: Any ideas, Lyria?
Lyria: Hmm, I feel like it's the thought that counts. It just needs to be something that shows how much you care.
Lyria: Sorry... I guess that doesn't narrow it down at all.
Ryan: Nah... I appreciate the effort, Lyria. Thanks.
Ryan: Sigh... Something fluffy, maybe?
Vyrn: Hm? You look like you've got an idea, (Captain).
Choose: Sure do! Let's ask Katalina!
- Sure do! Let's ask Katalina!
- I bet Io could help us!
Lyria: Great idea! Katalina always gives wonderful advice!
Vyrn: If you say so, (Captain)... Let's give it a shot.
The group puts the problem before Katalina.
Ryan: What do you think, Katalina? Can you point me in the right direction?
Katalina: Hm... Let's see. Oh! I have it!
Katalina: Why don't you make her a life-size Vyrn plushie?
Ryan: A Vyrn... plushie?
Katalina: Hehe... Just think of it! Vyrn's so cuddly... She could squeeze him all day long!
Ryan: Cuddly, you say... You're a genius, Katalina! I'll make her a nice, squeezable Vyrn plushie!
Ryan: Sigh... A Vyrn plushie... or a plushie Vyrn...
Katalina: Oh, it's going to be so adorable! Please, let me help you! I'm getting all fluttery just thinking about it!
Katalina: All right! Now all we need to do is take Vyrn's measurements...
Vyrn: Hey! Hold up just a second! I'm not a toy!
Lyria: Hehe... I'm pretty sure they both just want a plushie for themselves...
Vyrn: Gah! I'm done with you jerks! Should've just talked to Io in the first place!
The group decides to get a second opinion from Io.Choose: I bet Io could help us!
Vyrn: Io's bound to have some good advice for us!
Lyria: That's true. Her fashion sense is always on point—she told me so!
The group decides to get some input from Io.Continue 1
Ryan: So, Io, you think you could help me pick out a birthday present for my sister?
Io: Sure! We'll knock her socks off, guaranteed!
Ryan: Awesome! Thanks a bunch!
Io: Hehe. Don't you worry. You're in good hands!
Io: All right then! Let's hit the shops!
The party follows Io to town in search of a suitable birthday present.
She takes them to a wide array of different stores.
Io: Hmm... This little bird brooch is cute, but probably too childish...
Ryan: Wow... Look at all these plushies. What about this kitty cat? Oh wait, this squirrel is adorable too. Ah, so many options...
Io: What d'you think about this pendant? Actually, maybe it's too plain...
Ryan: Cute fluffy things as far as the eye can see... This shop is paradise!
Io: Hey, focus up, Ryan! Are you serious about finding your sister a present?
Ryan: But the plushies... I mean, uh... Never mind.
Io: Sigh... Do you really think your sister wants a stuffed animal?
Ryan: I... Well... Erm...
Io: Listen. A present should be something the recipient wants, not something you want to give them. You got that?
Ryan: Urk... You're right... Absolutely right...
Io: Hey, enough with the kicked puppy look! I'm just telling you the truth here!
Io: All right. Pull yourself together and let's head to the next store!
Ryan: Wait... Wait for me!
The group visits what feel like a thousand different shops before Ryan finally finds a present for his sister.
Ryan: Thanks, Io. This hair clip is perfect. I never would've found it if it wasn't for you.
Io: Teehee! Lucky we showed up when we did! That was the last one in stock!
Lyria: Yeah! You really were the right person for the job, Io!
Io: Haha! What can I say? I solve problems like this in my sleep!
Just as the gift-hunters are patting each other on the back, a scream rings out nearby.
Woman: Stop! Thief!
Thief: Hey, you! Get outta my way!
The thief crashes straight into Ryan. Before anyone can react, the miscreant is off and running.
Vyrn: Hey, Ryan, you okay?
Io: Oh no! The hair clip... It's broken...
Ryan: Why you dirty... thieving... How dare you ruin my sister's present!
Ryan races after the thief, his face contorted into a mask of demonic rage. In the blink of an eye, he overtakes and captures the ruffian.
But apprehending the thief does little to lift Ryan's spirits. The perfect gift is no more.
Ryan: This is the worst... And after Io worked so hard to find it...
Vyrn: C'mon, Ryan, cheer up.
Lyria: It's... It's okay, Ryan! We'll all go back out and find something else!
Ryan: Sigh... After all the time it took to settle on that clip, I don't see how we're gonna find anything better.
Io: Leave it to me! It ain't over till the primal beast sings!
Io beams confidently as she nearly drags the group back to the Grandcypher.
Once aboard, she runs to her room and returns proudly holding a jewelry box bursting with accessories.
Io: Hehe. My collection to the rescue!
Vyrn: Uh... I dunno how happy Ryan's sister's gonna be with a hand-me-down.
Io: Who said we were gonna give her a hand-me-down? We're going to repurpose some parts to fix up that hair clip!
Lyria: Ohhh! You're so smart, Io!
Io: Hee hee. Everything I own is super stylish, so we'll get that clip looking even better than new!
Ryan: Are you sure? I don't want you to have to ruin stuff you like.
Io: It's fine! Just check with me before you take anything apart, okay?
Ryan: Seriously... I can't thank you enough.
Ryan sits down to breathe new life into the hair clip using transplants from other accessories.
At least, he tries to.
Ryan: Um, Io? Help.
Io: I could've sworn you said you were good at arts and crafts...
Ryan: I like them. I never said I was good at 'em.
Io: Sigh... Fine, fine. I'll get you started, but I'm not doing it all for you!
Vyrn: Yeesh, Io. How about a little carrot to go with that stick?
Io: Oh, be quiet! What kind of gift would it be if it came from me instead of Ryan?
Lyria: Hehe... I can't wait to see how it turns out.
Under Io's watchful and caring eye, Ryan repairs the clip.
In the end, his sister receives a far more personal gift than he could have bought in any store.
The party was busy arranging a surprise party for Lyria. The biggest surprise of all was that she didn’t even know it was her birthday. Vyrn stayed behind on the ship while Katalina and the others left early in the morning to find a nice present. Not seeing her made Lyria more an a bit uneasy. Once Katalina had returned, they all shared a nice dinner together. Lyria grinned from ear to ear. Friendship really was the best seasoning.
Rackam: Lyria’s still out like a light...
Vyrn: Sigh... well. It’s still pretty early. I don’t think she’s gonna be up for a while.
Rackam: Alrighty, then... Vyrn, (Captain). Hold down the fort while we’re out.
Io: What fort... just keep an eye on Lyria, ‘kay?
Vyrn: Leave it to us! Right, (Captain)!
Katalina: Hey... uh, (Captain)? Are you sure you want to do this? I mean, I could stay...
Io: Oh, jeez! What the heck does that mean?! This was your idea in the first place!
Katalina: Yeah... it is quite a bit...
The sun rose on the Grandcypher.
Rackam, Io, and Katalina had gone out, leaving Vyrn and (Captain) behind.
Io: Hey! How about we get going before Lyria wakes up!
Katalina: I-I’m just saying... we don’t HAVE to give her a surprise party. Maybe we could?
Rackam: Aw, rubbish. A nice surprise is half of the fun!
Rackam: And it’s not like we actually know if her birthday’s today, right?
Katalina: Yeah... I can’t say I know much about where she came from.
Katalina: It’s just... it’s so sad...
Katalina: Today’s the day Lyria and I met.
Katalina: She was so different back then... although she might not remember.
Io: But that makes it perfect! And since she doesn’t have a birthday, we can make today her special day!
Rackam: Yeah! So let’s get moving and get the girl a present.
Katalina: But... it’s like we’re tricking her. I don’t think we need to do all this...
Katalina: And we’re together every day... I think she’ll be worried if I’m not here...
Rackam: Jeez... sometimes you gotta leave the nest, Katalina.
Katalina: Nest?! What nest?! I have no idea what you?
Katalina: Wait a minute! Are you saying I look old enough to be Lyria’s mom?!
Io: Aaaanyway! It’ll be fine! Vyrn can stay back on the ship! Right, (Captain)?
Vyrn: Exactly! Me and (Captain)’ll be here to keep an eye on things!
Io: Hey! So we won’t have to worry even if the Empire comes sniffing around...
Io: And besides... you’ve spent the most time with her, right?
Io: How the heck are we supposed to pick out a present without you?
Katalina: Well... yeah, you do have a point...
Rackam: Then there we go! We’re counting on you, (Captain)!
Rackam: We’ll be back as soon as we can manage it. Just make sure to keep everything hush-hush!
Lyria: Yawn... ahh. Good morning, Vyrn. Good morning, (Captain).
Lyria: ... hm? Is it just me, or is it a bit quiet?
Choose: Late sleepers, eh?
- Late sleepers, eh?
- You just missed them...
Lyria: Oh... then I’ll just go and wake up Katalina!
Vyrn: Whoa! W-wait! Don’t do that! They just went out for a bit...
Lyria: Wha...Choose: You just missed them...
Vyrn: Wha?! Why the hell did you just blurt it out?!
Lyria: Did everybody go out?
Lyria: Hm? But we already did the shopping yesterday...
Vyrn: No, uh... y’see... they had some stuff... business stuff they needed to do. Yeah, that sounds about right!
Lyria: Wait... really?Continue 1
Vyrn: Anyway! They’ll be back in a jiff! You don’t need to look all worried!
Lyria: Erm... are you going out too, (Captain)?
Choose: Sure am.
- Sure am.
- No way.
Lyria: ... oh.
Vyrn: Hey! What the hell’re you talking about?! We’re supposed to stay here, dummy!
Vyrn: It’s fine, Lyria! (Captain)’s not going anywhere! Right?! I said RIGHT, (Captain)?!Choose: No way.
Vyrn: Yeah! Me and (Captain) here decided to stay back!Continue 2
Lyria: That’s a relief... I don’t know what I’d do if you guys weren’t here...
Lyria: Sigh... so everyone else is gone. I hope they come back soon...
Io: Ah! Look, look! That would be pretty good, don’t you think?
Rackam: Hey! Quit running around! Don’t expect us to come find you if you get lost!
Io: No one asked you! And it’s not like I’m going to get lost, anyway!
Io: Hey, Katalina! You think Lyria would like this?
Katalina: ... what? Oh... yeah. Maybe...
Rackam: Sigh... dagnabbit. Katalina here’s too worried about Lyria to even pay attention...
Io: Hey! Snap out of it, Katalina!
Io: You know how strong (Captain) is, don’t you? She’ll be fiiine!
Io: And we’re not that far from the Grandcypher in the first place...
Katalina: Ah... yeah. You’re right. They’re okay... definitely.
Io: Sigh... she’s sick, I swear. You can’t even function if Lyria’s not around!
Io: Fine, then. We’ll find a present ourselves!
Io: Oh! Look! How about that shop? Let’s take a look! Right, Lyr?
Rackam: For the love of... hey, pot? I’d like you to meet kettle...
Rackam: Let’s just find a present and get back to the Grandcypher...
Rackam: I got the weirdest feeling that something’s gone wrong!
Rackam: Whew... how’d we end up getting so much stuff...
Io: Hrm... I think she’ll like it. But maybe we should’ve picked something else...
Vyrn: Oh! Look who the cat dragged in!
Katalina: Lyria! Sorry for being out all day... did you behave yourself?
Lyria: ... snff.
Lyria: Hic... snff... K-Katalina...
Katalina: Lyria?! What did you do?!
Vyrn: I, uh... I don’t know...
Vyrn: She hadn’t seen you since morning. Looks like she went and worked herself into a funk...
Lyria: Hic... a-a-and... snff... you d-didn’t e-even t-tell me... waaah...
Lyria: I-I was... snff... worried sick! I k-kept thinking, snff... wh-what if I n-never saw you again!
Katalina: I understand... I’m sorry, Lyria. I should’ve known better...
Lyria: Mmhmm... snff... b-but you came b-back...
Katalina: I did... and I’m not going anywhere ever again. So don’t you worry... you’re safe.
Katalina reached out to stroke the sobbing girl’s hair.
Rackam: Well, now... this isn’t exactly the kind of surprise I had in mind...
Io: Yeah... I kind of feel bad now...
The party sat Lyria down to explain exactly what they’d been planning.
Io: And you know what? We just couldn’t pick one out...
Io: Like, we weren’t sure what Lyria would like best...
Rackam: I dunno if I’d give a young lady food as a birthday present... seems kinda bland...
In the end, they brought back a veritable mountain of sweets and snacks.
Lyria: I’m so happy! Wow... these all look so good!
Rackam: Haha... guess a bland gift’s not so bad if it’s tasty.
At Lyria’s request, they spread the food out and began to eat.
Lyria: Nom... hehe.
Io: Hey, Lyria! Did’ja try this one yet?
Rackam: Hey, dagnabbit! I was gonna eat that...
Io: What, you’re going to eat all of them yourself? Oh! Lyria! What about this one? It’s absolutely delish!
Vyrn: Oh, damn! We gotta get another one of these apple tarts! Am I right or am I right?!
Katalina: Hehe. Yeah. The bakery’s a little ways away from town. It shouldn’t take too long to get there from here.
Lyria: Heehee... hey, Katalina.
Katalina: Hmm? What?
Lyria: Hehe. It’s just... food always taste so much better when I eat it with you guys.
Katalina: You’re right... definitely. Hehe. There’s nothing better than having everyone together.
They say in a happy circle under a night sky blazing with stars.
