The crew meets Keehar, a former skyfarer, and protects his village from monsters. That night, Keehar speaks forlornly of his granddaughter Selfira, who decided to leave the village and travel the world. Hearing this, the crew invite him to join them.
(Captain) and crew arrive at a village being attacked by monsters.
They team up with an aging former skyfarer by the name of Keehar to protect the village.
Vyrn: So you were a skyfarer like us when you were young, huh, gramps?
Keehar: Yes indeed! Our crew was founded by a bard, and I worked as a bodyguard.
Keehar: It was quite a fun journey to be sure. We had our share of hardships of course, but, in the end, it was a truly unforgettable experience.
Lyria: That sounds wonderful, sir. Which islands did you visit? I'd love to hear all about it!
Keehar: Well, let's see... An island made of ice... An island of giants, where everything was huge... Even an island where everything was upside-down!
Lyria: What? An upside-down island? Like, people were walking around on the ceiling or something?
Keehar: Indeed they were. Boy, it was the strangest thing. When we disembarked onto the island, we were pulled right up to the ceiling. And anything we dropped "fell" onto the ceiling too!
Keehar: I tell you, we couldn't believe it! Other than that, it was a fairly peaceful island, and the people loved our bard's songs.
Lyria: Wow! That's amazing! I want to go there too!
Vyrn: Hang on... He's gotta be making this up, right? Then again, the world is full of unimaginable things...
Keehar: Ha-ha! A skeptic, eh? Well, that's fine. Even I've wondered if it might have all been a dream!
Keehar: Still, the experience you gain during a journey helps you grow as a person. That's why young people ought to travel! It's good for you!
Vyrn: Yeah, I agree! But if you think it's so great, why quit being a skyfarer?
Keehar: Well... There was this young couple, you see, and when they died of disease, it was decided that I would adopt their child.
Keehar: Child-rearing... Now that was an adventure! It's a serious responsibility, becoming a parent, but at the same time, it's truly wonderful.
Keehar: And I must say, I raised an unbearably cute little granddaughter!
Lyria: Why that sounds like quite a happy family.
Together with Keehar, (Captain) and company defeat the monsters and return to the village without incident. Later that night...
Lyria: Huh? You're still awake?
Keehar: Oh, it's you two. Shouldn't you both be asleep?
Vyrn: Lyria woke up thirsty, but she was too scared to go get a drink of water by herself!
Lyria: What if there's a ghost about? Oh, and why aren't you in bed?
Keehar: I can't get any shut-eye... You see, my granddaughter recently told me she wants to strike out on her own.
Keehar: And she's plenty old enough to do it. I knew this day would come, but I never thought it would come so soon...
Keehar: I realize it's something to be celebrated, but I'm going to miss her so much...
Vyrn: I see... You must be really close to her... I'd be a little sad too...
Lyria: Oh! I have an idea! Why don't you soar the skies again? Come with us!
Vyrn: Yeah! Even if you do make up most of your stories, you still have a lot of good advice!
Vyrn: So, (Captain), what do you think?
Choose: I want to hear more of his stories.
- I want to hear more of his stories.
- The more, the merrier.
Keehar: Ha-ha! And I'd be glad to tell them! Maybe you'll even learn a little something.
Keehar: But advice isn't the only thing I'm good for. I can still hold my own against a monster or two!Choose: The more, the merrier.
Keehar: And I'm merrier than most! They called me the life of the party in my old crew!
Lyria: And I can see why! You always seem so jolly.
Keehar: There's no better remedy for a broken heart than a big ol' smile!Continue 1
Keehar: This is going to be my second wind of youth! Let's have some fun, everyone!
Keehar: A new adventure... A new chapter of my life... I'm so excited to tell Selfira!
And so Keehar joins the crew and sets off as a skyfarer once more.
The younger members of the crew soon find out how useful his prowess with the bow and extensive life experience can be.
From Fable to Fact
One windy day, the crew is listening to Keehar's adventure stories on the deck. Lyria is thrilled by his tale of walking through the air with an umbrella. As she leans in to hear more, monsters suddenly attack.
Lyria: Whoa! The wind is really blowing today!
Keehar: Ha-ha! This brings me back to the days I was still a skyfarer-in-training!
Keehar: It'd been raining pretty hard the day before. We were airborne, so I went out onto the deck to try to dry off my umbrella.
Keehar: But I'd barely gotten started when the wind grabbed it!
Vyrn: Guess that was it for that umbrella, huh?
Keehar: No! I managed to grab the handle at the last moment, but that didn't stop the umbrella. It lifted off, taking me along for the ride!
Lyria: Oh no! So did you fall off the airship?
Keehar: Of course not! I just did my best to enjoy my little stroll through the air!
Lyria: How exciting! And what happened next?
Vyrn: We've got trouble, you two! There are monsters in the way of the airship!
Keehar: We can't let 'em have this ship! Let's get 'em, Captain!
From Fable to Fact: Scene 2
Influenced by Keehar's story, Lyria takes out an umbrella and says she wants to fly too. But Keehar quickly changes his tune, saying he actually rode the back of a primal beast. He follows this up with a tale of a fruit-tree island.
Vyrn: Hey, Lyria. Whatcha doing with that umbrella?
Lyria: I'm going to fly! With the wind this strong, what could possibly go wrong?
Vyrn: Everything! What are you thinking? I can't let you do that!
Lyria: But Keehar said he flew with an umbrella!
Keehar: Oh, Lyria. Now that I think about it, the wind was much stronger that day.
Keehar: It was actually so strong that it knocked a flying primal beast out of the sky and right onto the deck!
Lyria: Wha? A primal beast? That wind must have been pretty terrifying...
Keehar: Sure was. Anyway, I tended to the beast's wounds, and it let me ride on its back as thanks! That's how I flew!
Lyria: Wow! You rode a primal beast? That's amazing! I want to ride one too!
Vyrn: Hey now... Did you fly with an umbrella or a primal beast?
Keehar: The primal beast landed on an island covered by a vast forest... I couldn't believe my eyes.
Keehar: That forest was filled with fruit trees! Apples, plums, walnuts... You could eat all you want!
Lyria: Wow! That sounds wonderful! Wouldn't you like to go there, (Captain)?
Vyrn: I want some apples... An island like that would be the best!
Keehar: Uh-oh... There's more to the story, but it looks like there are monsters in our ship's path!
Keehar: Lyria, Vyrn... Stand back! I swear by my bow that I will protect you!
From Fable to Fact: Scene 3
Keehar shoots down a monster just as it's about to crash into the airship. After escaping danger, the crew lands on a nearby island. The villagers there ask them to hunt some monsters, so they enter a forest to do so.
Vyrn: That'll teach 'em to attack random airships! Good job, (Captain).
Keehar: Don't count your hatchlings yet! There's still one coming this way!
Lyria: At this rate, it'll crash right into the Grandcypher!
Keehar: It's too late to change course! I'll take care of this!
Vyrn: You took that monster out with a single arrow! Talk about the value of experience!
Keehar: Ha-ha! Little more than target practice, my scaly friend!
Keehar: Hm? I see an island. How about we go down there to rest for a while, Captain?
Lyria: I agree! After all the fighting, a cozy little village would be wonderful.
Villager: This is just horrible...
Keehar: Hello, sir. If something's bothering you, why don't you try me?
Villager: Well... Monsters have been coming out of the woods to destroy our crops.
Vyrn: That's no good. We should do something about it, (Captain)!
Villager: R-really? Oh, you're skyfarers! Please help us! We'll reward you of course!
Lyria: We're happy to help! (Captain), let's go to the forest!
From Fable to Fact: Scene 4
After the crew defeat the monsters, they find out the forest is an orchard. As thanks for defeating the monsters, the villagers let the crew eat their fill of fruit, and Keehar continues to entertain with his stories.
Villager: Thank you for defeating the monsters! I don't know how to thank you...
Keehar: We should help each other whenever there's trouble. Think nothing of it!
Villager: You guys are so nice! You know, the forest you protected is actually the village orchard!
Keehar: Oh! No wonder it smells so good!
Villager: I'm glad you feel that way, because, as thanks, you can eat as much fruit as you want!
Vyrn: Wow, that's amazing! That huge forest is an orchard?
Lyria: This must be the island Keehar told us about!
Lyria: How amazing! So much fruit grows here, and we can eat all we want? It's just like your story!
Keehar: That's right, young lady. And this is just the sort of thing that makes journeys fun!
Vyrn: But isn't this just a coincidence?
Meh. Lyria's having fun, so I guess it's fine!
Keehar: I wonder what adventures await us next. I can't wait to find out, Captain!
The way Keehar smiles, it's impossible to tell whether his stories are true or not.
But one thing's for sure... (Captain) and the crew are bound to go on some pretty unbelievable adventures with Keehar.
Now and Forever
(Captain) and the crew come to the rescue of a pregnant woman at the request of her son. Aletheia and Keehar agree to look after the boy until his father arrives. Keehar cheers the boy up when he worries he won't get along with his new sibling. Reminded of his own poor filial relations, Aletheia receives encouragement from Keehar and resolves to work on himself and his relationship with his son.
Their most recent mission complete, (Captain) and the crew decide to relax in town. They are soon interrupted by a small boy in a big fluster.
Boy: Huff, puff...
E-excuse me, sirs! I... um!
Keehar: What's wrong, young man? Easy now... Take a deep breath and tell us what the trouble is.
Boy: My mom... she... her stomach's hurting real bad! And there's a baby in there!
Aletheia: What! No time to waste, lad! Bring us to her!
The boy races back to his mother with (Captain) and the others hot on his heels. Together, they get his mother safely to the hospital.
Beset by labor pains, the grateful woman thanks them as she is taken into the delivery room.
Nurse: Thank you so much! She's a fair bit ahead of her due date... I'm so glad you were there to help.
Aletheia: Oh, it's all thanks to this lad's quick thinking. He came running to find help.
Nurse: What a clever boy! But... I'm not quite sure what to do with him while his mother is in labor...
Keehar: Hmm? What happened to his father?
Nurse: We managed to contact him, but it was such short notice that he won't be able to come right away.
Keehar: Is that so... Well, I have an idea! How about we take care of the boy until his father finds his way home?
Nurse: Oh, my! You don't mind? If you could just make sure he doesn't stray too far from the front of the hospital, that'd be a big help.
Keehar: Indeed we can! You just do your best to take care of his mother.
Keehar: Does old men like us good to be around children now and then, doesn't it, Aletheia?
Aletheia: Slow down there, Keehar! I'm really not good with children...
Keehar: Ha-ha! Alright, boy. You're going to sit with the old-timers for a spell!
Boy: Um... Okay.
Ms. Nurse? Take care of my mom and the baby, okay?
And so Keehar and Aletheia find themselves doing a bit of babysitting.
Aletheia: Hrm... You seem rather out of sorts, young man.
Keehar: You certainly do. Must be worried about your mother and your new brother or sister, eh?
Aletheia: Once that baby is born, you'll be a big brother. You'll have to be strong to shoulder that responsibility.
Boy: Yeah... I mean, I know. It's just...
Aletheia: Well, I tried... I'm just not cut out for speaking with children. They don't listen to reason.
Keehar: Listen here, son. Your family will be just fine! This old skyfarer's instincts are never wrong!
Boy: What? You guys're skyfarers? At your age? That's amazing!
Keehar: Ha-ha! These wrinkles are proof we've seen a few battles in our day, that's all! And that's how you know you can take what I say to the bank!
Aletheia: (Hm? Looks like that did the trick. I truly fail to grasp the workings of the juvenile mind.)
Keehar: Hoho... Now we can't go far, but we have some time to kill. What shall we do while we wait?
Boy: Well... I'd sure like to hear about some skyfaring adventures!
Keehar: Would you now! Well I can dish those up by the bowlful! Have yourself a seat and open your ears, my boy!
Keehar's tales are like something straight out of an old legend. The boy's eyes shine with wonder.
By the time Keehar reaches a break in his narrative, the boy is ready to share what's troubling him.
Aletheia: So do you want to tell us why you looked so dour before? Worried about your mother?
Boy: Well... All my parents talk about anymore is the baby. I feel like I'm invisible...
Aletheia: Hrm... Well, you have to make some sacrifices. Looking out for your younger sibling is your job as big brother.
Aletheia: A real man doesn't want to be coddled! How can you be jealous of a helpless infant?
Boy: But I—
Keehar: Slow down there, Aletheia. I understand what you're trying to say, but you can't put all that weight on him at once.
Keehar: I think your parents would be sad if you and the baby didn't get along. So would I, honestly.
Keehar: So what I'm saying is, you don't have to jump into being a big brother all at once. You can grow into it a bit at a time.
Keehar: In just a little while, you're going to be seeing that baby for the first time. It's bound to be a bit awkward.
Keehar: You might have a squabble here and there at first. But you'll be friends before you know it. I think you'll be surprised how dear your little sibling becomes to you.
Boy: Sigh... You really think so? I dunno how I'm gonna make myself like the new kid...
Keehar: Ha-ha! No need to worry about that! Bonding takes time.
Keehar: I raised an adopted granddaughter myself... And I can't tell you how much she means to me!
Keehar: Hoho. The same goes for your parents. Of course they're going to love the baby. But they love you too.
Keehar: It wouldn't hurt to let them know you need a little attention now and again!
Boy: Ohh... Really?
Keehar: Really. That's your right as a child, my boy. It's practically in the job description!
Boy: Wow! Thanks, mister! I don't know why I was so worried... I get it now. It'll be fine!
Dad: Hey! Sorry I'm late, Son!
I really have to thank the two of you. My family owes you a great deal.
Keehar: Ha-ha! Think nothing of it! Don't keep your wife waiting now.
Dad: Thanks again for taking the time to watch this little guy. C'mon, Son. We can wait for the baby inside.
Dad: And I heard you ran to find someone when your mom went into labor. I couldn't be more proud of you!
Boy: Hehe... That's what big brothers do!
Dad: You said it, little man! The two of us are gonna have our work cut out for us taking care of mom and the baby, aren't we?
After thanking the skyfarers once more, father and son make their way into the hospital.
Keehar: Hah... From the looks of things, we have nothing to worry about. What a fine, upstanding young man!
Keehar: Hmm? And what could be bothering you, my dear man? You look a mite gloomy.
Aletheia: Forgive me... I was just thinking about my boy. He was about that age when things started going sour between us...
Aletheia: Ha... Although I doubt I would be in the running for the skies' best father...
Keehar: Then you have work to do! If there's something you feel you're lacking, you owe it to yourself to fix it!
Aletheia: Hrm... Now? After all this time?
Keehar: I'll have none of that quitting talk! It's like I told that boy. You don't start out being a father. You become one gradually.
Keehar: Can't say I know the specifics of your situation, but better late than never is what I say.
Aletheia: Hrm... I think you have the right of it. Nothing good comes of giving up so easily.
Aletheia: I do have some work to do on myself. I guess an old dog can learn a new trick or two!
It seems the seasoned skyfarer's words have lit a new flame in the jaded old sage's heart.
Perhaps one day, Aletheia will resolve the regrets he carries with him on his journey.
Only time will tell. As he ages, the future only seems harder to predict. The road ahead is veiled in mystery but full of unfathomable potential.
