Happy Birthday Cutscenes
# Link Text

A most hearty happy birthday to you!
A person's history is entangled with the world's, just as a thread is woven into a tapestry.
I sincerely wish only the best for you in the future.


Happy birthday, (Captain)! I suspect I said this to you last year, but the accumulated experience of all the days you've lived through is what makes you who you are. That I managed to have some small effect on another one of your years is, well... I suppose you could say I'm proud. May the year that starts today be even better than the last, (Captain).


Happy birthday, (Captain).
It's been some time since this crew took me under its wing.
As I look back on our time together, meeting you was the turning point in my life.
Essentially, your existence is the pivotal requisite in history's timeline.
Thus the day of your birth holds a greater significance, especially to me.
To have been able to meet you amid the flowing time of this huge world is nothing short of gratifying!


Hm? Oh, (Captain). Sorry, I was just lost in thought.
Today is your birthday, is it not?
Has it already been four years? I've thoroughly enjoyed our adventures which have taken us through so many ups and downs.
And I expect that others will find traces of what we have accomplished.
When those traces are found, what will the finders think of us?
Here I go again. Rambling on...
Oh, but think of the research that will be needed to understand what we did together!
You know! I'm jealous of the researchers of our future!

Happy New Year Cutscenes
# Link Text

Another year is upon us, which means we're that much further from antiquity.
My resolution is to see all the ruins of old before they vanish.


Happy New Year, (Captain)!
We've come to the start of another year, yes? How wondrous.
Last year was quite fruitful. What astonishing discoveries and mysteries await me this year? I can hardly wait to find out!


Say, (Captain), will you partake in a New Year's custom from a different land? All you have to do is write down your resolution for this year.
Yes, I even have the materials all prepared for you. Go for it.
Phew, I'm all done. How about you, (Captain)?
Hahaha. Oh no, I'm not laughing at your resolution.
Someday in the distant future, someone is bound to see our mementos of the past.
I wonder what that person will think of us.
I get the strangest sense of elation when I imagine myself as a small part of the larger tapestry that is history.


(Captain), happy New Year.
It's the start of a new time. What will you do with it? Last year you wrote down a resolution...
Since then I've read quite a few texts and found other quite varied traditions...
Some that have lasted, some that have changed, and some that have vanished...
So many different cultures have crossed so many unique roads. It really is fascinating.
The me of the past would have stopped there.
But now I have you and all the members of the crew.
Why stop at talking when there are so many things we could do together!
That would give me the chance to really feel everything I read for myself!

Valentine's Day Cutscenes
# Link Text

Feasting on sumptuous morsels only improves my thought processes.
Oh? Today is Valentine's Day, isn't it?
These chocolates are for me? I'm not a fan of eating while reading, you know.
But it's from you. I suppose I'll accept.


Hm, I'm not sure I understand the meaning of this passage. Looks like the previous page is missing.
Oh? Why hello, (Captain). Can I help you with anything? My research has hit something of a snag, and—hm?
Mm, what's that smell? Oh, are you giving me chocolates again this year, too?
Heheh. Not a bad time to take a break, I suppose. Thank you very much, Captain.


Ah, (Captain). Is this a Valentine's Day present?
Thank you! With this I think I can finally be at ease.
Hahaha, to tell you the truth, my heart was palpitating in the days leading up till now.
It interfered with my research. But now that the anticipation is done with, I can go back to focusing solely on my work!
I have some texts that I wish to study, so I'll be leaving now.
Oh, and thank you again for the chocolates, (Captain)!


Oh? (Captain). Why, is it Valentine's Day already?
I'm grateful for your gifts every year. I really am.
I remember every item you have ever given me, (Captain).
Those presents represent the history between us after all.
Haha. You know, I always forget things I have interest in.

White Day Cutscenes
# Link Text

I made this as a thank-you gift for Valentine's Day. It's all yours if you want it.
Today's White Day after all. I recreated this dessert from an ancient recipe.
It may be a little bland and unsophisticated, but it's not half-bad.


This is for you, (Captain). I made it for you in return for Valentine's.
I'm quite a bit more confident about how it turned out compared to last year's.
My original intent was to recreate a recipe I found in an ancient tome. Quite the enjoyable diversion, if I do say so.
I suspect my research may end up playing a part in the kitchen as well. I'm sure those who already find themselves in the thrall of the kitchen will agree.


Since it's White Day, I want to show you my appreciation with a little gift, (Captain).
Yes, indeed, I did handcraft everything again just like last year, but with a small exception. I know you'll love it!
You see, I didn't consult any ancient texts this time around. Instead I went in pursuit of genuinely delicious sweets.
It's a special day, after all. A day of excitement not just for me but for you as well.
But who knew the world of cooking could be so deep! Even within the confines of sweets, there exist multitudes of recipes...
Oops, forgive me. You can't help rambling when you're a scholar at heart.


All right, (Captain), please accept this! And eat it!
Making sweets really does get more fun with the years.
I've made something amazing again this year as well! I paid attention not only to the taste but the overall look.
I promise you this is an improvement from last year!
It's strange... Aside from research, there is nothing that catches my attention as much as this.
Hahaha. This might be what others typically call a hobby of sorts!

Trick or Treat Cutscenes
# Link Text

Happy Halloween!
Haha! This is my first Halloween, and I am truly impressed! Look at all these great costumes!


Happy Halloween, (Captain)! We find ourselves at the cusp of another night of shocks and surprises!
My experience last year, coupled with my research into various ancient tomes, has made into a veritable Halloween meister in record time!
First step—costume. I prepared one for you as well, (Captain). Let the spooks commence!


"Trick or treat" is the usual saying during Halloween, but why?
Many thoughts came to mind, so I decided to look into the origin of the phrase.
Halloween was originally established as a commemoration for the souls of the departed.
As such, it seems slightly inappropriate to be begging for candy on a hallowed day, doesn't it?
After further research, I found out that the candy was actually an offering of appeasement to the souls.
People who didn't receive candy weren't the ones playing tricks on others—it was the work of the deceased!
As far as the dead were concerned, the living had no right to play practical jokes on anyone during Halloween.
A lot of children do this, though, without knowing its history.
Ah, but it makes sense that they'd wear costumes while saying trick or treat... Hmm... This is interesting...


Halloween really is a beast of its own.
(Captain), what if the dead really were to come back...
And we could communicate with them. With who and what would you discuss?
You ask me?
Hmm... I find it difficult to name only one person...
But I might say... Anyone who knows something about a past I'm interested in.
And I'd like to test the validity of my research.

Happy Holidays Cutscenes
# Link Text

Happy holidays.
It seems that the yuletide celebration has been celebrated for a long time. I wonder when it originated?
I imagine it was much different back then.
Now all of the cultures from around the Sky Realm have mixed together to come up with what we see today. Amazing, don't you think?


It seems the holiday season is upon us once again.
I must confess I've been rather preoccupied with my research as of late, and lost track of time completely.
Heh heh... I can hear such lively voices outside. And I imagine you came here to bring me with you, yes? Let's go join the crew together.


Seasons greetings, (Captain)! Holidays only come once a year, so let's make the most of them!
Is it out of character for me to say that?
Haha, guess it shows how long I've been a member of this crew.
I've gotten used to being a reveler. I might as well act the part and be merry.
Plus, I could probably use this experience as inspiration for my research!


Happy holidays, (Captain).
This is a beautiful night. It's cold out, but the sky is clear, and I feel like I can hear the sound of the stars.
It's like my mind is hypersensitive... I might even make real progress with my research!
I must be going to my room!
Don't mind me. Everyone have a lovely evening!

The Lonely Folklorist[edit]

The party visits Sierokarte seeking a new mission, where they reunite with the folklorist Johann. After completing the mission, Johann takes a keen interest in Lyria and her ability to manipulate the power of the primals, expressing a strong desire to elucidate its source. With curiosity as his guide, Johann joins the crew.

On a visit to Sierokarte to pick up a new job request, (Captain) and company have an unexpected reunion.
Johann: It has been too long, everyone. I haven't seen you since that matter on Lognos.
Vyrn: Well, if it isn't Mr. Scholar! Doing well for yourself, I take it?
Johann: I am. Quite the coincidence running into you here. I'm looking for a job request.
Sierokarte: Aw, sorry, folks! I only have one request available at the moment.
Johann: All right, then, everyone. I have a proposal. Why don't we undertake it together?
Johann: I believe it may be quite enlightening to work with someone else for a change.
Lyria: Yay! Having you on our side would be really reassuring, Johann!
Sierokarte: All right, then! Be careful out there, everyone!
Shortly thereafter, our heroes complete the mission with Johann and return to Sierokarte.
Johann: These really are more fun if you do them with others!
  1. You always go it alone?
  2. Now goodbye forever.

Choose: You always go it alone?
Johann: Yes, that's right.

Choose: Now goodbye forever.
Johann: Saying such a thing after we've been apart for so long is a bit cruel.
  1. Just kidding.
  2. Seriously, bye.

Choose: Just kidding.
Johann: I thought so. Really, I did.

Choose: Seriously, bye.
Johann: You've nearly brought me to tears.
  1. Aw, sorry!
  2. What a baby.

Choose: Aw, sorry!
Johann: Well, that's a relief.
Continue 2
Johann: Anyway, let's get down to business.

Choose: What a baby.
Johann: Ngh!
Vyrn: Hey! Where are you going, Mr. Scholar?
Lyria: Wait!
Afterwards, the crew catches Johann as he runs through the market with tears in his eyes, and frantically tries to pacify him.
(Captain) ultimately apologizes for going overboard.
Continue 1
Vyrn: Hmm... So you've been researching as well as taking job requests all by yourself this whole time?
Johann: Well, as a researcher, there was simply no way I could join a crew.
Johann: What if I received a job request during important research, or vice versa?
Johann: As such, I've primarily worked alone up to this point.
Johann: But I've started to think it might be interesting to work with others from time to time.
  1. Care to join our crew?
  2. So what, you want an invitation?

Choose: Care to join our crew?
Johann: Goodness, yes. Assuming I won't get in the way, of course.

Choose: So what, you want an invitation?
Johann: You're being rather cold today...
Continue 3
Johann: Truth is, you see... The reason I broached such a subject is because of my keen interest in Lyria.
Lyria: Huh? Your interest... in me?
Johann: As a scholar, I wish to know more about the secrets of the Astrals.
Johann: It's no surprise, then, that I'm curious about the source of Lyria's power to manipulate primal beasts.
Lyria: You want to shed light on the secret of my powers?
Johann: Precisely! At Lognos Island, you said you didn't know the source of your powers, Lyria.
Johann: Do you not wish to find out? Personally, I'm brimming with curiosity.
Lyria: I... I want to know, too.
Lyria: So um, (Captain)! Why don't we have Johann come with us?
  1. Sure thing.
  2. I don't want to have to take care of him.

Choose: Sure thing.
Johann: Thank you, (Captain). That's quite the relief to hear.
Vyrn: Yeah! If it means finding out the secret behind Lyria's powers, I'm onboard!

Choose: I don't want to have to take care of him.
Johann: You make it sound like I'm a mere house pet...
Lyria: We'll make sure you get taken for walks three times a day!
Johann: Hahahahaha...
Vyrn: Hoo boy... I feel kinda bad about the way you're getting treated here, Mr. Scholar.
Vyrn: Anyway! If it means finding out the secret behind Lyria's powers, I'm fine with bringing you aboard!
Continue 4
Johann: I believe I should prove useful to you. As you may know, I have a certain degree of fluency in the ancient language of the Astrals.
Johann: If you intend to find the Island of the Astrals by tracing the footprints of the Astrals themselves, my expertise will likely come in handy.
Johann: I'm looking forward to working with you again, (Captain). We're going to make it to Estalucia one day. You can count on it.
And with that, the folklorist Johann joins (Captain)'s crew.
His wealth of knowledge will doubtless prove a great help to our heroes.

Johann the Hunted[edit]

(Captain)'s party is suddenly attacked as they are working on a mission on an island. The attackers seem to be after Johann, but the reason is not yet clear.

(Captain)'s party is suddenly attacked during a mission on a remote island.
The attackers' objective is unclear, but they don't seem interested in interfering with the party's mission.
Vyrn: Geez! What's with these guys attacking us all of a sudden!
Lyria: Hm, they seem to be after Johann.
Johann: Hm, yes. There can be no doubt about that.
Katalina: Who are they? Judging from their equipment, they seem like an order of knights from somewhere.
Johann: Actually, I've had a lot of people after me as of late. People under the comand of someone rich and powerful, no less.
Katalina: I find that hard to believe. Why would they be after you?
Johann: They have their reasons. You don't need to be involved in black market dealings or dark conspiracies to be a target.
Katalina: Hm. I don't know what those reasons are, but we need to get out of here. That much is obvious.
Johann: Indeed. I've repelled them before, but I may not be so lucky next time.
Johann: Each time I defend myself successfully, they redouble their efforts.
Assassin 1: Ah ha! There you are, Johann!
Johann: Great. They found me.
Assassin 2: Heheh... Time to hand it over!
Johann: No.
Assassin 2: Aagh!
Assassin 1: Why, you little... Where do you get off?
Johann: I'm not going to just hand it over. Not on my life. You're going to have to work for it.

Johann the Hunted: Scene 2[edit]

The attackers are after Johann's staff. They relay their employer's offer for the staff, a sum of money that could buy an island, but Johann firmly refuses. With their patience depleted, the attackers sic monsters on the crew.

Assassin: No! We have to get that staff! Don't let it get away!
Vyrn: Wait, those guys want your staff?
Johann: Seems like it. Quite the bother, if I do say so. They simply don't know when to quit.
Katalina: But... why do they want your staff so badly?
Johann: Whatever the case, I can't let them have it. Period.
Assassin: Listen, we're not telling you to give it to us for free! We're offering to pay a lot of money!
Assassin: See? Look at this letter! This is how much our client will pay you! Are you saying this isn't enough?
The assassin tosses over a letter, which Katalina picks up off the ground.
Katalina: I don't believe this... You could buy an island for that price!
Lyria: Oh my gosh!
Johann: Sigh... I have no intention of selling my staff, no matter the price.
Assassin: Then you leave us no choice! Do it!
Monster: Gwooargh!
Vyrn: They're releasing monsters!
Assassin: You should have handed it over when we asked!

Johann the Hunted: Scene 3[edit]

Johann's staff is a relic of the Astrals, which he uses as a weapon since he doesn't know its actual use. His dream, Johann reveals, is to discover the staff's origin and true purpose.

Assassin: This isn't over! Next time... you won't get off so easily!
Johann: Looks like we're done here. Thank you for the help. I don't know if I could have handled them alone.
Lyria: Um, what's that staff of yours? How could it be worth the price of an island?
Johann: Oh, this?
Katalina: Yeah. Why are there people that want it so badly?
Johann: I haven't mentioned it before? This is a relic of the Astrals.
Lyria: Wow, the Astrals made it? So it must have some kind of mysterious—
Lyria: Wait... Oh my gosh!
Katalina: It must be incredibly valuable, then!
Johann: Yes, it's likely safe to assume so.
Johann: What value can money have when discussing a relic from a culture and people that vanished hundreds of years ago?
Vyrn: Wowie wow wow... I had no idea you were swinging around something that valuable!
Johann: I still don't know what the staff's true purpose is, so using it in this manner is all part of my research.
Johann: To use something is to understand it, after all.
Johann: There seems to be some magic left in it, so it's been quite useful to me as a weapon.
Lyria: Wow, we've had something that incredible with us this whole time?
Johann: To find out why this staff was created and where it came from... That is my dream.
Johann: When the staff is once again used for its original purpose, perhaps then I will glimpse the world spoken of in the myths of creation... A man can dream, yes?
Motivated by an inexhaustible curiosity, Johann's search will continue until he finally finds what he's looking for.
