Karin Kanzuki's Sky Debut
(Captain) and company take Karin to the island where she believes Necalli can be found. Upon hearing that (Captain) and company are gathering pieces of the Sky Map to cross the Grim Basin, Karin is convinced that they are no ordinary crew. With that, Karin decides to aid (Captain) and company in their quest.
Having accepted Karin's request, (Captain) and company journey to a remote island to find Necalli.
As they fight monsters and continue forward, Lyria decides to ask Karin a few questions.
Lyria: Hey, Karin. There's something I wanted to ask you about... What's a zaibatsu?
Karin: You mean, you don't know?
Lyria: Well, I figured that if you're doing business with Siero, it must be some kind of shop, right?
Karin: If you believe it to be some kind of store that just sells goods, then you'd be mistaken.
Karin: A zaibatsu controls several companies in multiple fields, like machinery, commodities, and medical research.
Lyria: So, um... it deals with all kinds of things? Like Siero's Knickknack Shack?
Karin: Well, yes... You could think of it as a much bigger version of the Knickknack Shack, I suppose.
Lyria: Really? So you mean, it deals with even more stuff than Siero's?
Lyria: That's amazing! It sounds like your zaibatsu could do anything!
Karin: Haha, of course. The Kanzuki Zaibatsu is all-powerful!
Karin: But in the Phantagrande Skydom, it doesn't have much power... yet.
Karin: We're thinking of expanding here, and in other skydoms as well.
Vyrn: What! You mean you can make it through the Grim Basin?
Karin: Unfortunately no, not at this time... However, we will be developing the technology for that in the near future.
Vyrn: Dang! Your zaibatsu is pretty incredible! Isn't it, (Captain)?
Karin: So, you're interested in crossing through the Grim Basin as well, (Captain)?
Vyrn: Heh heh! Well, we're collecting pieces of the Sky Map so we can cross the Grim Basin.
Karin: The Sky Map! I have heard of it before.
Karin: Possessed by the great primal beasts, it shows the way across the Grim Basin. So, that's what you're...
Lyria: Yeah! And we're going to use it to go to the ends of the sky... To Estalucia!
Karin: Estalucia... They say that's the land where the Astrals live.
Karin: I see. Such great ambitions... It seems I was mistaken to believe that you were just regular skyfarers.
Choose: Nah, we're nothing special...
Karin: Not wanting to say it too boldly? How humble!
Karin: However, those with power have a duty to present it, wouldn't you say?
Choose: Well, maybe!
Karin: Humph... A bit conceited, I see. I like it.Continue 1
Karin: You know, (Captain), I would be glad to help you gather the pieces of that map.
Lyria: What? But Karin, you're the head of your zaibatsu. Doesn't that keep you really busy?
Karin: Well, if we're working on finding the technology to cross the Grim Basin...
Karin: I would need to know the path to take there in the first place, now wouldn't I?
Vyrn: Oh, okay! And since we know how tough you are, if you joined us, that'd help us too!
Karin: Hah... Well then, I suppose it's settled. I look forward to working with you, (Captain).
Karin: With Karin Kanzuki by your side, we'll surely make it to Estalucia!
Karin: Ah, ha ha ha haa!
And so, the self-righteous and snobby yet powerful Karin Kanzuki joins the crew.
With her help, (Captain) and company will surely be able to push forward to the ends of the sky.
A Friendly Competition
During their adventures, (Captain) and company visit a town holding a large bug-catching competition. Upholding her family motto of All you need is victory!, Karin joins the competition and challenges (Captain). They go off to the forest in search of insects, but realize that the other competitors have already caught the bugs closest to town. With that, they head deeper into the forest.
One day, (Captain) and company visit a remote town. They are surprised by the energy of the people they find there.
Lyria: Wow! Everyone here looks like they're having so much fun!
Karin: And there are food stands and things... Perhaps this is some sort of... festival?
(Captain) stops a nearby shopkeeper and asks about the festival.
Shopkeeper: Huh? A festival? Naw, this here's a bug catching competition! We have it cuz there's so many rare bugs on the island!
Shopkeeper: If yer interested, feel free to join! There's two divisions for competition: Beauty and Strength.
Vyrn: Ha ha! A bug catching competition! We could probably handle that, don't you think, (Captain)?
Lyria: Oh really?
Vyrn: Yeah! We used to do stuff like that back home all the time!
Karin: My, such passion... Surely you are very capable, (Captain).
Karin: But, how will you compare to me and my flawless technique? I am not to be bested, you know.
Lyria: What? Are you good at catching bugs too, Karin?
Karin: Of course. And as the Kanzuki family motto goes, "All you need is victory!"
Karin: More importantly, this competition is an opportunity to promote the Kanzuki name. And I will be the victor!
And with that, Karin and (Captain) decide to join the competition and have a little friendly competition of their own.
They quickly head to the forest in pursuit of bugs. But...
Lyria: Hmm... We're here in the forest, but I don't really see any bugs...
Karin: By the look of the town, this does appear to be a rather sizable event.
Karin: I'd say that the other competitors have already caught the bugs closest to town.
Vyrn: Oh... Well, then maybe we just have to go deeper into the forest!
Karin: I'm getting ahead of you, (Captain)! Come along, now!
A Friendly Competition: Scene 2
(Captain) and company delve deeper into the forest. There, they find an insect with beautiful wings. A giant worm goes to attack it, but the crew puts a stop to it. Seeing the power of the worm, Karin initiates a battle with it to determine if it is worthy enough to represent her.
(Captain) and company delve deeper into the forest. There, they find an insect with the most magnificent wings.
Lyria: Wow, it's beautiful! You might win the competition if you catch that one!
Karin: I see. So (Captain) is trying to win the beauty division.
Karin: And me? Ah, ha ha ha haa! Why, I'll be going for strength, of course!
Vyrn: Hey! It's gonna get away!
Lyria: Let's follow it! Don't let it escape!
Lyria: Look! There it is!
Karin: Wait a moment Lyria, Don't you think something's a little odd?
Karin: If it really was running away from us, it would be strange if it just stopped over there.
Lyria: Hmm... Hey, yeah...
Vyrn: Ahh! A giant worm!
Karin: Ah, so it was startled by that worm!
Then, the giant worm descends upon the dragonfly that (Captain) had been pursuing.
Jumping in front of the dragonflair, (Captain) shields it from the giant worm's attack.
Karin: ...Though your little attack lacked elegance, it was quite... fierce. Not bad, (Captain).
Vyrn: What, are you planning on taking that thing to the competition or something?
Karin: Ha ha... Let's see if this little insect is worthy of my efforts.
Karin: Well then... Time for battle!
A Friendly Competition: Scene 3
Having caught their bugs, (Captain) and Karin enter into the tournament. (Captain) barely loses in the beauty division, but Karin, with her powerful worm, emerges as the winner of the strength division. Though the crew is impressed with Karin's victory, she laughs and tells them that it all went according to plan.
Vyrn: Huh? It's... bowing down?
Karin: Ah, ha ha ha haa! Though it is just an insect, it does seem to have some sense!
Karin: Very good, then. I hereby grant you the honor of entering into the competition as my insect!
Vyrn: Gulp. That's crazy! She's got that worm totally under her control...
And so, Karin, with the worm, and (Captain), with the dragonfly, head back to town to participate in the competition.
In the beauty division, (Captain) loses by a narrow margin. In the strength division, however, Karin comes home with a victory.
Lyria: Wow Karin, you're amazing!
Vyrn: No kidding! That thing is crazy powerful!
Karin: Ah, ha ha ha haa! I am the victor, just as planned!
Karin: Karin Kanzuki can never be stopped or defeated!
Never taking anything lightly, Karin, it seems, is a lady of constant victory.
Knowing that, she is bound to be a powerful ally for (Captain) and company in the adventures ahead.
