A young lass who loathes being treated like a child, Io encounters and eventually joins you while in search of her master, who vanished in the Valtz Duchy. Io is persistent and refuses to give up in the face of adversity, but she's a little inflexible, too. As you might guess from the way she bristles at being treated like a child, she can't wait until she's all grown up.

Happy Birthday Cutscenes
# Link Text
1

Happy birthday!
I wish I could be grown up like you! I want to be a beautiful lady!
Just you wait, I'm gonna catch up to you before you know it!

2

Hey, (Captain)! Happy Birthday!
Grr. Just when I thought I was catching up to you, you've moved another year ahead.
Don't laugh! You were just born a little soon, that's all!
You just wait. I'm going to become a beautiful lady before you know it!
Hehe. We better stick together until your next birthday so you can see me grow up!

3

How do you feel? You're a year older now; do you feel like a grown-up?
I can't wait till I'm all grown up...
I know I'm already a lady, but I want to be a grown-up lady.
Ah! But today's not about me. You're the star today, (Captain).
Say, how much longer till we reach Estalucia, do you think?
I hope we'll always be together! You, me, the crew, and everyone!

4

Happy birthday, (Captain)!
I bet your dad would be blown away by how well you've turned out!
I wonder how much farther it is to Estalucia.
I'm sure we'll be able to reunite you with your dad really soon!
Ah... Ahaha... I kinda welled up just imagining that reunion...
But it's a really great thing to have someone in your life important enough to miss.
Thinking about that really makes me wanna see Master again...

5

Happy birthday, (Captain)!
Wow, it's already been a year since we celebrated your last one, huh...
Feels like it went by in a flash. But I guess that's just how much we're enjoying every single day!
A whole lot of stuff goes on in the skies, but I know I'll be okay with you and the others by my side.
Now I'm looking forward to spending another year with everyone! Let's have some fun times together, (Captain)!

Happy New Year Cutscenes

1

Happy New Year!
Can I get my New Year's presents now?

2

Ugh... I was up all night last night, so I'm really sleepy.
This happens to me every year, but I can't possibly stay in bed on New Year's Eve.
Oh, I shouldn't be complaining like this! It's not very lady-like.
So let me just say, happy New Year, (Captain)!

3

Wow! Is that for me? For New Year's? Thanks, (Captain)!
Oh, wait,
I'm supposed to be a full-grown lady now...
I should be the one giving out gifts.
Wait here! I'll be right back with presents for all the little ones!
Hehe! Of course! What else would you expect from a grown-up like me!

4

Hey, (Captain)! How would you say I've changed since last year?
I'd say I'm becoming more of a refined lady with every passing day, wouldn't you?
Hey... Why'd you go silent? Say something!
Ah. Nope, nope. Settle down, Io. What's that thing Rosetta always says? "Anger and haste hinder good counsel"?
You've taught me something important today, (Captain). Heh heh! First day of the new year, and already I'm taking another step on the staircase of refinement!

5

Wow, just look at that! I'm still a little sleepy, but I'm glad I made the effort to wake up early and catch the first sunrise of the year.
Um, how's that saying go? "Decisions made on New Year's Day are the key to a successful year," or something? I should decide on my New Year's resolution soon...
Hmm, but what should it be?
What about you? Have you already decided on yours?
As for me... I guess I have something, but it's more like a life goal than a resolution.
One day I'll be an adult that everyone looks up to! Yeah, it has to be that.
It's going to be a long journey there, but I'll do my best this year too!

Valentine's Day Cutscenes

1

Okay, here they are! Hmm... I think they turned out all right.
I've never made any fancy Valentine's chocolates until this year!
Can you try them for me? I'm not sure if they're any good...
Oh, just have a little bit, won't you? They probably taste great!
Huh? Why are you grinning like that?
Whatever! Here, just take them already!
I hope they're good... If they're gonna be eaten, I want them to be enjoyable after all.
Ah! I was talking about Master! I want him to enjoy them. Don't think of it like that!

2

What do you want, (Captain)? Do you... Do you want some chocolate?
No? Are you sure?
Come on! Quit teasing me, already!
If you want chocolate that bad, then here, just take it!
I'm just trying to say thanks for everything! That's it!
Ugh! Be quiet and take your chocolate!

3

Here... This is for you...
Wh-what? It's just a little box of chocolates... Nothing to get excited about.
S-stop it, you're gonna make me...
No, I'm not blushing! Nngh... (Captain), you meanie...

4

Phew...
Here ya go, (Captain). You've been waiting for this, right? I made lots of chocolate for everyone, so I might as well let you have some.
If I made enough for everyone, why'd I bother to ask you here on your own?
W-well, I... That is...
Yours is special...
I mean! Don't read anything weird into it! It's just a thank you because you always look out for me!
Now take your dumb chocolate and get out!

5

Now wait just a minute! Why are you holding your hands out already?
I didn't say I was going to give you anything, did I? Not that I didn't make you chocolate, but...
Come on, shouldn't you at least try to be a little more subtle during these occasions?
I-I'm not embarrassed about giving it to you! I just want you to... you know, really treasure it.
Hmph! It's a little too late to be making a face like that!
You're a real handful... But here, I went all out when I made this, so you better take your time and savor it!

What? What do you want me for all of a sudden?
You have a present for me? Oh, thank you! That's very thoughtful... But what's the occasion?
It's not even my birthday... Huh? It's for White Day?
Oh, right! It's White Day!
So then... This is a present from you for White Day...
Hehe. Thank you! I'll be sure to cherish it!

2

...
Aah! What're you doing here, (Captain)?
Huh? It's White Day, right? So what?
...!
What is that? Are you gonna give that to me?
You're giving these to other people too, right? I'm sure they'll be happy to get them. Off you go now!
Heh heh heh. I got a present from (Captain)!

3

...!
N-nothing! I just happened to be looking your way is all!
(Did (Captain) forget today's White Day?)
(Well, it wouldn't be right for me to demand a present anyway...)
(I should act like I'm not expecting anything. That's what a grown-up would do.)
Wh-what're you grinning about!
What do you want? Huh? This is for me? But I thought you forgot...
You were just teasing me? (Captain), you big bully!
Hehe. But I'll let you off this time.
You gave me such a nice present after all!

4

Wh-what do you want? Why'd you ask me to come see you?
...
(Urgh... You can't arrange a meeting then just clam up like this!)
Huh? You dropped my White Day present somewhere?
(Captain)! How could you lose something so important!
Ah... Wait, is that it over there?
Oh, thank goodness we found it! You went through all the trouble of making it, after all.

5

Wow! What's this? Homemade sweets for me?
It looks really good! Thanks, (Captain)!
Hey, why are you grinning like that?
You're happy that I'm happy?
What? You can't just drop a line like that on me! Geez...
Y-you have to give me some warning before you say those things, or else I'm going to overheat...
Anyway, what do you say I steep us some tea, and we can eat these sweets together?
N-now's a good chance to spend a bit of time together, that's all!

Trick or treat!
Give me some candy, or else!
Huh? You don't have any? Hehe. Well then, looks like you get a trick!

2

Hey, (Captain)! Trick or treat!
Gimme candy or get pranked!
Hmm... You gave away too much, and now you're all out of candy?
You're getting tricked for sure then! Hope you're ready for my special Halloween magic!
You can run, but you can't hide! Terror tag! You're it!

3

Trick or treat!
Hehe, got you, (Captain)! You've got nowhere to run!
Now give up and hand over the candy. Unless... you'd prefer a trick?
Hm? I'm the one with nowhere to run? What're you laughing for?
...! I hear footsteps!
D-don't tell me this is a trap!
Aaah! Wait, wait! I'll give you all the candy you want! Just spare me!

4

This year, I'm not gonna run around like a kid. I'm just gonna hand out candy, 'cause I'm a lady!
Here, (Captain), hold out your hand! I've got some for you!
Huh? What're you looking at me like that for?
You wanted to celebrate Halloween together?
Ohhh, fine. Fine! Just knock it off with those puppy dog eyes!
All right. Just because you twisted my arm, I'm gonna prank it up this year too!

5

Hey, (Captain)! Can you give me a hand?
I was getting treats ready for Halloween...
But it looks like someone came and ate some of it!
Yeah! The pumpkin-flavored cream puffs filled with delicious—
Wait a second! How'd you know what kinda treat it was!
Huh? Vyrn? You saw him happily snacking on some cream puffs just now? Hm... I see.
Oh, Vyrn! When I find him, he's gonna get a lot more than just a trick from me!

Happy holidays!
Come on! Let's go get some cake!

2

There really are all kinds of great things to do this time of year.
You can spend time with your friends. You can eat great food. And you can even get presents from Santa Claus!
Hehe. It really is the best time of year!
I can hardly wait for it each time.
Hey, let's go over to the kitchen! I'm sure someone's making something good for dinner.
We should help them out! Then maybe we'll get to try some!

3

Hehe! I'll be making the cake for tonight!
And you'll be helping me, (Captain)! Let's see if we have all the ingredients ready...
Hm? Where's the apple? I could have sworn I put it here. Don't tell me...
I know who did it! We'll bake that cake later, (Captain). First we gotta catch this thief!
Hehe. Time to add some roast lizard to tonight's menu.

4

(Captain)! Hey, (Captain)! It's snowing!
Hehe. Don't you think it's romantic?
This holiday really isn't complete without a thick, white blanket of snow.
What? You wanna have a snowball fight! And you want me to go round up the rest of the girls to join?
Really, (Captain)! Way to ruin the mood!

5

Hey, (Captain)! Have you seen Vyrn around anywhere?
What? He went to borrow clothes from Santa Claus?
All right, looks like he's getting ready! I better get changed too.
We're going to be giving presents out to the kids on the ship, so we've got to look the part!
That's what a good adult does during the holidays, isn't it? Hey, how about joining us too, (Captain)?

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.
Io: ...
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!
Io: Hyaah!
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).
  1. Sure do! Let's ask Katalina!
  2. I bet Io could help us!

Choose: Sure do! Let's ask Katalina!
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?
Vyrn: What!
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.

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!
Thief: Yeeek!
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.

Lyria's Birthday

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?
  1. Late sleepers, eh?
  2. You just missed them...

Choose: Late sleepers, eh?
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: Okay...
Lyria: ...
Lyria: Erm... are you going out too, (Captain)?
  1. Sure am.
  2. No way.

Choose: Sure am.
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.
Lyria: Oh...
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...
Vyrn: ...
Just them...
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...
Io: Grr...
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.
Katalina: Lyria?
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.
Lyria: Waught!
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.
