The Puzzled Imperial Soldier
Juri, a young imperial soldier, infiltrated the Order of (Captain) in order to lead Farrah and Katalina back to the Empire. Juri intended to convince the two of them when he found the right time, but as he got to know everyone in the Order, something began to arise in his heart that had not been there before.
Juri, a young imperial soldier, infiltrated the Order of (Captain) in order to lead Farrah and Katalina back to the Empire.
While acting together with everyone in the order, he had intended to convince the both of them when he found the right time, but...
Juri: Farrah! Be careful!
Juri: You think I'd let you?!
Farrah: Thanks! That was a close one!
Juri: Did you see that?! We’re even now!
Farrah: Ungh! Lend it to me and I will make as many as you like!
Katalina: Good grief... I don’t care if you two compete like that, but try to conserve your body strength.
Juri: Aha! Thank you! I’ll be careful from now on!
Katalina: Hahaha, you’re so military. You don’t have to kowtow to me like that. I’m not your lieutenant anymore.
Juri: Understood, ma’am!
Vyrn: Haha. You’re still kowtowing to her!
Farrah: Hahaha, Juri is not one to bend that easily!
Juri: Ahhh.... .
Juri: (How mysterious. Why do both Lieutenant Katalina and Farrah look so indifferent to what is going on?)
Juri: (They are not at all ashamed of running away. I though that Lieutenant Katalina was an imperial military woman through and through...)
Juri: (I feel rigidly bound even though I am under no orders. Even more so than under the imperial military. )
Vyrn: Hey, dude! You got something on your mind again?
Farrah: Relax, will ya Juri? Your face has been all scrunched up...
Juri: N-no.... Mr. Vyrn. The atmosphere in this order... It seems so congenial.
Juri: It’s fresh to me. That is because all that I know is the imperial army.
Vyrn: Yeah I think that’s pretty obvious! You can’t be acting stiff like that with us! In this order, we do what we like!
Juri: Such freedom...?
Vyrn: Ah, the freest one of us would have to be (Captain)!
Katalina: Hahaha! Indeed. Well, he does have the goal of going to Estalucia, the Island of the Astrals.
Juri: Estalucia!? The place where the Astrals are said to live, a place where a treasure like none other seen before sleeps?!
Vyrn: Damn right! Our ambition is to make it to Estalucia!
Juri: Hahaha... And what an ambition that is!
Farrah: Wait! Juri, you are acting like a bit of an idiot!
Juri: No, that’s not it, Farrah! I don’t laugh at the dreams of others!
Juri: I was just surprised because Sir Vyrn was saying something preposterous with a straight face!
Vyrn: What did you say?! Boy, you really are acting like an idiot, aren’t you?!
Juri: Oh, no! N-not at all! Sir Vyrn? Absolutely not! A figure of speech, perhaps...
Juri: Primal beasts, Sky Map fragments... If they exist, then the Island of the Astrals must also...
Lyria: Yes, that's it! I feel the same way!
Vyrn: Whahaha! Boy, I thought you were more thickheaded than that!
Juri: (An Order heading for the Island of the Astrals...)
Juri: (I wonder why... Somehow I get the feeling that if I had not enlisted in the military I would have been a part of this Order...)
Juri: (What on earth am I thinking about! I am a proud man of the imperial military! Would it even be possible for someone like me to not be in the military?)
Vyrn: Hey hey... Why are you so red-faced?
Juri: N-no! Cough cough! It's nothing, really! Cough!
Juri was a young imperial soldier. He had infiltrated the Order for the imperial army, but...
As he got to know everyone in the Order, something began to arise in his heart that had not been there before.
Like Father, Like Son
Some time had passed since Juri, the imperial soldier, had joined (Captain) and the skyfarers. As he and the party walk through a forest, Juri senses a threatening presence nearby. The presence is none other than his former captain in the imperial army. And so, Juri crosses swords with his former comrades.
Some time had passed since Juri, the imperial soldier, had joined (Captain) and the skyfarers.
The party walks through a forest on a mission. As they advance through the forest, Juri senses something odd about their surroundings.
Juri: (I sense something... animals?)
Katalina: What's wrong, Juri? Is something bothering you?
Juri: No... I just thought I heard a sound.
Vyrn: You worry too much!
Katalina: Actually... I've been wondering about it too. It's as if there are people around us...
Juri: (... Again! This is...!)
Juri: This formation... It can't be!
Juri: Everyone! Get ready for battle! We're surrounded by imperial soldiers!
Captain: Hmph, I commend you for noticing our ambush, young Juri.
Juri: Captain! And you guys!
Captain: I see you've grown. How's your swordsmanship?
Juri: Sir! I've been keeping up my training as usual.
Juri: But captain... why are you in battle formation?
Captain: Ha! We can't simply watch as a deserter tries to walk by.
Captain: Men, draw your swords!
Soldiers: Yes, sir!
Captain: Listen men! He may be our former comrade, but there's no need for mercy! Attack!
Soldiers: Sir! Yes! Sir!
Like Father, Like Son: Scene 2
Juri defeated his former comrades in combat. The captain praises him for improving his skills, and declares that he will be the next opponent.
Captain: Ah... You weren't lying about keeping up your training! You've been honing your skills I see.
Juri: (I can't feel too happy about compliments when we're surrounded like this...!)
Captain: It's been a while, but I'll be your next opponent! Prepare yourself, young Juri!
Juri: (He's serious... He wants to kill me!)
Juri: Very well... I'll show you how much stronger I've become!
Like Father, Like Son: Scene 3
The captain is defeated by Juri in combat. To commend his skills, the captain dubs Juri "The Fiery Soul of the Empire", a title formerly held by his late father. Juri unexpectedly receives a memento of his father. It would become a part of him, and support him as he continues through the path he believes in.
Captain: Ugh... I see you've become quite the swordsman...
Juri: I... I won...
Juri: Captain... Why...?
Captain: Hmph, no reason in particular. Come, men! You scum! We've wasted unnecessary time!
Captain: Juri... From this day forward, I grant you a new title.
Captain: Juri, the Fiery Soul of the Empire!
Juri: That name...! You know of it, captain?!
Captain: Hmph! Oh yes. Yes, it's the title that once belonged to your father! I pass it onto you!
Captain: I commend you... you've become a skilled swordsman. I'll report back to your father resting in his grave and tell him how much you've grown.
Captain: Come, men! Back to the mission! We don't have much time!
Captain: You! Have you confirmed our current location?
Soldier: Sir! Our location is still unknown!
Captain: Very well! Then we advance forward! We do not retreat!
Soldiers: Sir! Yes! Sir!
Captain: Farewell! Young... No, Juri, the Fiery Soul of the Empire!
Juri: There he goes...
Katalina: Hmph... Boisterous as always...
Vyrn: Hey, so what did that guy come here for, anyway?
Farrah: Hmm... Maybe he came here because he was worried about you!
Juri: I don't know about that... That squad got lost all the time...
Juri: The Fiery Soul of the Empire, huh.
Juri unexpectedly receives a memento of his father. It gives him confidence.
Although he lost his father and his place in the army, the imperial soul will live on inside him. Juri continues to proceed on the path that he believes in.
Seruel finds Juri on the airship deck, sighing under the weight of his problems. He worries that leaving the Empire may not have been the reasonable thing to do. Learning of his misgivings, Seruel admonishes him that all difficult decisions come with some degree of pain. Juri shows surprise at Seruel’s concern, and Seruel invites him to tea so they can get to know each other better.
As the airship glides through the sky, Juri stands on deck, gazing into the distance.
Seruel: What’s the matter? I’ve heard nothing but sighs since I stepped out on deck.
Juri: Uh, what? Sighs...you say? I didn’t mean any...
Seruel: Dear me... You hadn’t noticed? Might I ask you to forbear? You’re making MY heart heavy.
Juri: Oh, pardon my rudeness! I shall be careful.
Juri apologizes to Seruel, then retreats back into his thoughts.
Seruel: Humph. You pay me service with your lips, but I see your head does not yet understand me.
Juri: Oh, what? I was trying not to contain my sighs...
Seruel: Well? What is the problem? Standing around brooding will lead to nothing but wasted time.
Juri: Hrngh! Well... You might say... I am having second thoughts about my choices in life.
Seruel: Sigh... Explain—clearly, and concisely.
Juri: You see, before I joined this crew, I was diligently making my way through the ranks of the Imperial army.
Juri: But I found I could not justify the Empire’s methods, and so I left the army to which I had once sworn my fealty.
Juri: I did what I believed was right. And my captain not only supported my decision, but encouraged it.
Juri: But...I never repaid the men and women who made me who I am today... And I fear leaving my unit was akin to slapping them in the face.
Seruel: Rubbish. Is that all you were worried about?
Juri: Come, now! For me, it is not so trivial.
Seruel: You may have had friendship with people in the Empire, and those ties may not have been easy to cut, but sometimes pain is part of making a decision.
Seruel: You followed the path you believed to be right, and so have distanced yourself from the Empire. Why should you still feel so attached?
Juri: You make a good point. I suppose I have been clinging a little too tightly to the past.
Juri: And if I cannot abide the Erste Empire’s methods...then it is inevitable that I should be here.
Juri: I mustn’t stand here moping—it would be unfair to (Captain). (Captain) believes in me.
Seruel: I see. The problem was not reluctance to part with the past, but lack of faith in yourself.
Seruel: You’re just like Naoise. You are so eager to do right that you end up trying too hard.
Seruel: You have nothing to worry about. The future will prove that you made the right decision.
Seruel: Heh. Many problems are solved better with time than with thought. I hope you will remember that.
Juri: (Unbelievable! Seruel is even stricter than the captain! And he’s troubling himself...over me?)
Juri: ...You have my thanks. Er...
Seruel: What? Why do you have that odd look on your face?
Juri: It’s just that...well... I hadn’t thought you to be so friendly.
Seruel: Ha ha, is that so? I thank you for the compliment. ...And I am quite curious to know what you DID think of me.
Juri: Ack! I-I didn’t mean... It just slipped out... No! I mean...
Seruel: Hm... We are in the same crew, after all. Perhaps we should get better acquainted.
Seruel: Don’t you agree? Let us have a nice, long chat over a cup of tea.
Juri: (Curses! Th-that smile on his face... There’s no mistaking it–that is the face of an angry man!)
Juri: (Hrrgh... Tea would surely be awkward in these circumstances! ...I know!)
Juri: Let’s not be hasty! Since you were kind enough to suggest it, let us invite the others to...
Seruel: Oh? You mean to say you don’t want to be alone with me?
Juri: No! That’s not what I meant...
Seruel: Heh...ha ha ha! I speak in jest. You are more amusing than I had expected.
Seruel: Come. We must see if we can find out who has time on their hands.
And so they invited the rest of the crew, and enjoyed a pleasant teatime together.
Though his words were harsh, Juri felt Seruel’s concern for him.
Taking his doubts and fears into his heart one by one, Juri will move forward.
