Happy Birthday Cutscenes
# Link Text

So today was the day of your birth... Hehe, an auspicious occasion indeed.
I... I'm truly fortunate to have encountered you.
If I'd never met you, perhaps my heart would remain frozen still... Perhaps I'd still be exacting retribution upon other skydwellers.
I appreciate you, (Captain). From the bottom of my heart.
Thank you again, (Captain). Happy birthday.


Once again, we've arrived at the day on which you were born... I'm glad.
Before, one year went by in the blink of an eye. But my sense of time has changed since.
In the span of just one year, you've grown bigger and stronger.
Yet your heart remains kind, unchanging from the day we first met.
It makes me very happy to see that. Happy birthday, (Captain).
Allow me to present you with something on your special day—a field of crystallized flowers blooming in the sky.
Come, let's go up to the deck. A wonderful view awaits.


How many years have we spent together?
There is no sacrifice I would refuse for your happiness.
I vow to protect you, beloved, even from nature itself.
All I ask is that I may be with you in peace and contentment for the rest of your days.
Happy birthday, (Captain).


Beloved skydweller, it brings me great joy to celebrate yet another one of your birthdays...
It is also proof that I honored the vow I made last year.
Ah, yes. For today's gift, how about me?
No need to be modest. If I'm yours, I can keep you safe forever.
Well, my beloved? What do you desire of me? You need but speak, and your wish shall be granted...
Hehe. Think on it for as long as you like. I will never go back on my word.
You look adorable now, love. How could I allow any harm to befall that sweet face?


Happy birthday, my beloved skydweller.
My heart was full of joy when you graciously accepted my gift last year.
You haven't forgotten it, right? In order to protect you, I offered myself as a gift.
And today brings us to yet another birthday. In other words, my present is working wonders.
But what else could I possibly offer you that's even greater?
Beloved skydweller, is there anything you wish for?
There is no one else around us, so don't hold back. Tell me your heart's desires.
Hehe... I won't leave until you say it.

Happy New Year Cutscenes
# Link Text

Are those fireworks I see, (Captain)?
So they're for welcoming the new year... Very well. Allow me to help.
We'll create a world of glimmering silver as far as the eyes can see.
A wintry sky illuminated by brilliant sparks of fire, reflected in the ice beneath... It will be a splendorous sight. I'm sure you'll love it.
Hehehe... Let's make this a New Year's celebration to remember.


The beginning of a new year... A good day on which I can feel the strong and reassuring breath of nature.
The expressions on your faces are bright. If only such times could last forever...
Oh? So it is custom for skydwellers to offer their wishes at the shrine on New Year's?
A very interesting practice. Will you take me to the shrine as well, (Captain)?
I'd very much like to see how skydwellers carry out their usual activities up close.


Happy New Year. What a lovely day it is, my beloved.
Allow me to make you a toast.
With deft movements, Maculus Marius takes up a handful of snow and molds it into a glistening slice of bread.
Here... Here is your toast.
Choose: Are you punning me?
P-please, forget what just happened. A childish impulse took hold of me. I know how to perform all your ceremonies correctly, of course.
Oh, this isn't like me. My face is so hot, I think I might melt.


Happy New Year, beloved skydweller.
Do you remember our last New Year's? No, don't say a word... I blush just thinking about it.
That's why this year, I shall make you a proper toast.
Macula Marius summons two chalices of ice from the frosty air. She withdraws a pouch, produces a precious pearl, and drops it into (Captain)'s cup.
Choose: It's beautiful!
I'm happy if you're happy, my love.
One of these days, sweetie, you're going to make me melt...


Beloved skydweller, I have a request to ask of you...
Will you give me a New Year's gift?
Judging by your surprise, perhaps not then...
Last year, seeing your delighted face melted my heart.
Therefore, I was hoping to be on the receiving end this time...
You say you have nothing on hand right now? Hmm, very well... We can forgo material objects.
Instead... will you hold my hand?
Oh... I see now. I think I'm beginning to understand the reason behind that look of yours.
Hehe, may we have another blessed year together, beloved skydweller.

Valentine's Day Cutscenes
# Link Text

Beloved skydweller... I've brought you some chocolates of my own creation.
Put one in your mouth, and it shall melt like a fresh winter's snow... I'm quite proud of them.
They will melt at the slightest heat, so you may not be able to hold them...
However, do not worry... With my icy fingers, I can hold them for you. Now come closer.
Say ahh...
How is it?
Oh, your face is flushed with heat... Come now, let me cool you down with my embrace.


Hello, my beloved skydweller. I've made chocolates for you again this year.
While I was in the kitchen, the other skydwellers saw my culinary powers at work. I helped them prepare their chocolates as well.
And in exchange, they taught me a new recipe.
The knowledge of skydwellers is splendid. I managed to craft even greater chocolate this year.
Even I wanted to snack on a few of them. But that would be uncouth.
Oh, but perhaps there is a way. Could I try one with you?
I heard from the other skydwellers about placing chocolate directly into your Valentine's mouth. I think I would rather enjoy that.
Come closer, now. Why are you blushing? Hahaha.


Drizzle cotton candy onto the shaved ice, soft as a cloud, and top it all with ganache...
Mm... Oh, it melts so delightfully atop the tongue... What a guilty pleasure.
Who would've thought the skydwellers could dream up such a perfect recipe? How hedonistic they are...
Gasp... (Captain)? This is not what it looks like!
No... What's the use of lying? I was making shaved ice for you, but it just looked too good...
I couldn't help but sneak a bite. But no need to worry. There is plenty left for you. Won't you come and join me?
Truly... A guilty pleasure...


Beloved... I've another treat for you this year.
I filled pastry rolls with chocolate, then chilled them with my frost.
They're cool on the tongue, with a mesmerizing texture... And when you've bitten through the crust...
The sweetness that spills forth will take you to paradise... You skydwellers truly are hedonists.
Oh... I'm rambling, aren't I? Please, help yourself. Tell me what you think.
And show me what you look like in the very throes of ecstasy...


Beloved skydweller, I have decided to foray into creating a new chocolate experience this year.
My ears caught wind of a sweet treat filled to the brim with ice cream and cool chocolate...
A parfait, as I'm told. One often finds them at cafes.
After requesting knowledge from those more familiar with cafes, I put my skills to the test to create one for you.
But... I may have gone overboard with it. I'm afraid you won't be able to finish it by yourself.
Shall we indulge together? Fear not, I learned the proper etiquette of eating parfaits.
Let's not wait any longer. Say ahh...

Chocolate Shaved Ice
White Day Cutscenes

The ice I create will not melt under any half-hearted heat.
But the warmth of your heart is enough to melt that ice.
Though I haven't tried these treats you've given me... I can already feel your warmth inside.
Hehe... This is a feeling I'll treasure. Thank you, (Captain).


Haha. So once again you've come to offer me treats.
Look, you've made me smile... I just can't help it—I'm so excited to try your gift.
But this is so beautiful, it would be a shame to eat it.
Perhaps I should freeze it and appreciate its beauty forevermore.
I jest. You made it for me to enjoy. And so I gladly shall.
But I know the love you put into this gift will never fade.


Oh, (Captain)... I believe I shall melt...
When I think of how you hold me dear, it sets my heart aflame.
Every year, you send me tokens of affection... Thank you, truly...
My beloved, I vow to you here and now. As you have cared for me, so I shall care for you and more.
Dearest (Captain)... I love you.


Today, you are mine and mine alone. What happiness...
Last year, I gave you my heart. This year, have you come to give me yours?
Sh... There's no need to speak. You being here is answer enough.
Now... Let me nibble on these treats and melt into contentment...
May our next White Day be just as perfect.


It feels like much time has passed since I last stepped foot into a town...
Is this part of your return gift for Valentine's Day?
Beloved skydweller, will you tell me what you have in store for me?
A parfait for the parfait? Now I understand. You're taking me to the cafe.
My heart is filled with joy. I'm excited to see how skydwellers manage their shops close up...
But most importantly, we mustn't forget parfait eating etiquette. You'll feed me a spoonful as well, won't you?

Trick or Treat Cutscenes
# Link Text

Ah... The young skydwellers are especially adorable.
To see them so joyous at receiving frozen treats... So adorable.
I thought Halloween to be a more ghastly, spine-chilling day, but it seems that I was sorely mistaken.
This day is just as warm and festive as the other holidays. Hehe...


Ah, (Captain). Here is a treat for you as well.
The frozen treats this year are scrumptious. The young ones are coming for them one after another.
Hm? What about tricks, you ask?
No need. After all... I'm afraid I don't understand what trickery encompasses..
To me, Halloween is a warm and lively season where I can hand out treats and enjoy the smiles around me.
Now, show me your smile, (Captain).
Or would you prefer me to feed you your treat?
In that case, come. Open wide...


You are much admired.
It is a beautiful thing to love and be loved.
But your love... I want it all for myself.
I will turn you into a sculpture of ice and keep you by my side for all eternity. Then never again shall you gaze upon another.
Now, beloved skydweller... Cease your struggling. It will be all over in an instant.
I jest. Hehe... Just a little trick.
Did I seem so serious? It was all your imagination. Hehehe...


It's the night of Halloween. Emerging onto the deck of the Grandcypher, (Captain) runs right into a throng of hysteric, strident crew members.
In the midst of this hullabaloo, Macula Marius stands next to an ice sculpture in the shape of the captain.
Macula Marius: Friends, there is no cause for alarm. With the rising of the next sun, the ice that holds my love captive shall melt...
Or rather... It seems the ruse is already up.
I'm sorry, sweet. I wanted to try one of those "tricks" skydwellers are so fond of, but it seems I went too far.
Don't be angry with me. I won't do it again. My next trick will be for you and you alone.
No tricks at all? Hmm... Very well. I'll just have to come up with another surprise.


Macula Marius: Beloved skydweller. I noticed you haven't left your room at all today... Have you fallen ill?
(Captain): ...
(Captain) remains completely still as Macula Marius draws in close with a worried look upon her face.
Macula Marius: What's wrong?
Sweetheart, why won't you answer me? Have you been afflicted with a curse?
I cannot let you suffer like this. I will travel until the ends of the skies to find a cure...
Choose: Wait!
Macula Marius: What!
I understand now. You're playing a trick on me in return for last Halloween.
Your performance genuinely shocked me. Perhaps I have underestimated Halloween...
Regardless, do you understand the price you must pay for worrying me?
Hehe... It's my turn now. There's no good running away. I have ample amounts of candy to share.

Happy Holidays Cutscenes

(Captain). Won't you spend just this one day with me?
I've never had the chance to play in the snow with skydwellers before... I'd like to try it, if only just once.
And it's tradition to spend this day with those important to you, is it not? Therefore, I choose you,(Captain).
Hehe... After we've had our fill of fun, we can make an igloo together.
Inside we can keep warm, and let our worries and weariness melt away.


Hehe... Thank you for spending the holy night with me this year as well, (Captain).
Are you cold? The degree of cold skydwellers feel is different from how I perceive it.
I see. If you're feeling fine, then all is well.
But tell me if it becomes too much for you.
I shall come close and warm you up from the heart...


I love the winter. Cold nights are the most beautiful—for look... It is when the stars glisten brightest.
Come stand by me. We shall speak while gazing at the sky.
Do not fear the cold. I command the frost and will not let it touch you.
No... I've changed my mind. Tonight is special, after all. Such heavy-handed meathods would spoil the mood.
Lean against me. Hehe. Am I not warmer than you expected?
Now, lay your head on my chest... my beloved.


It's cold tonight. Isn't it, beloved skydweller?
But do not fear... I'd never beteem the frost to so much as nip at your nose.
Though, if you'd like, you can let the cold carry your soul away... then you and nature will become one forever.
Hehe. I jest, of course. Moments like this—the two of us chatting side-by-side—mean more to me than all the stars in the sky.
But if one day, you change your mind... and find you'd like to spend eternity with me, do let me know.


Snow will soon be upon us, beloved skydweller. The evening will be cold.
It doesn't seem like snow will fall, you say? Have you forgotten that I am a primal beast?
I believe it would be best to return to the warmth of your room before it gets cold.
Oh? Does the way I speak surprise you? Perhaps that may be the case.
There's no doubt that I wish to spend eternity with you, my beloved skydweller.
But, a part of me thinks that changing my methods may be worth a try.
I would like to experience eternity with you tonight.
The snow will not cease anytime soon. Shall we take this time to converse the night away?

Fate Episodes

A Frigid Enforcer

(Captain) and the crew receive an urgent request to investigate incidents of people turning into ice. The being responsible is a primal beast named Macula Marius, acting in retribution for the destruction of nature. However, Lyria realizes that it also pains her to take such action against the skydwellers. Touched by their warmth, Macula Marius decides to join the crew and overlook the actions of the townspeople for now.

???: Your skin is as soft as a fresh winter's snow... And so pleasing to poke, hehe.
Lyria: Hehe... That tickles, Marius!
Macula Marius: Was that not to your liking? Very well... More gentle head pats for you then, Lyria. Don't be shy now.
Macula Marius: Hehehe... Don't worry, (Captain). You will have your turn as well. Now come here.
Macula Marius: I want to feel your heart closer to me—a heart so warm, it could melt even the coldest ice.
Vyrn: Uhh...
One day, Vyrn wakes up a little later than usual and groggily makes his way to the Grandcypher's main hall.
There, to his befuddlement, he finds a woman who appears to be a primal beast acting particularly chummy with (Captain) and Lyria.
Vyrn: Hey, uh... So who's this lady? Sure looks like you guys are havin' a good time.
Lyria: Morning, Vyrn! This is Marius. Actually, let me tell you about last night...
(Captain) and Lyria recall the events of the previous night, when they first encountered Marius.
A few days prior, the Grandcypher received an urgent request to investigate strange incidents that have been occuring throughout the Phantagrande Skydom.
Specifically, incidents of skydwellers turning into solid ice without any warning or trace of a struggle.
Through much investigation, (Captain) and the crew came to the conclusion that a magic user of some sort was probably to blame.
They noticed a pattern: once an island was affected, the incidents would soon spread to nearby islands.
With this knowledge, they make their way to the island nearest to the location of the last incident.
Lyria: Oh, thank goodness... It doesn't look like anyone here's been affected yet.
Vyrn: We can't let our guard down just yet! The culprit might already be here, hiding among us.
Lyria: Y-you're right... We need to stay on the lookout!
Bracing themselves for danger, (Captain) and the others begin looking around for any suspicious-looking characters.
However, the search goes nowhere. The crew decides to take a breather outside of town.
Vyrn: Oof... Nothing. After all that, all we found was a whole lotta construction happening on this island.
Lyria: Let's try looking again once we've rested a bit.
Lyria: Now that you mention it, there isn't a lot of nature to be seen here...
Lyria: The lakes are murky, and the trees are almost all cut down. It's kind of sad...
As Lyria utters these words, (Captain) feels the temperature drop.
???: (Ah... So you kindhearted souls understand.)
Lyria: H-huh? I thought I heard someone just now...
The crew looks around for the source of the voice, but aren't able to find anyone.
Despite their best efforts, (Captain) and company return to the Grandcypher unsuccessful.
Lyria: Nothing happened, and we weren't able to find anyone suspicious-looking in the end either...
Vyrn: Well, we gave it our all—and it's better that nothing bad happened anyway. Let's just try our best again tomorrow... Yawn...
Vyrn: I dunno about you guys, but I'm feelin' kinda cold... Time to hit the sack.
Lyria: Good idea. Let's get some rest too, (Captain).
Lyria and (Captain) start making their way to the sleeping cabins, when suddenly...
Lyria: W-wait! This aura... A primal beast? Let's go, (Captain)!
(Captain) quickly nods in agreement, and the two begin following the trail of the primal beast.
The trail takes them back to town, but there they find that the citizens have been frozen solid.
Lyria: N-no! Everyone's been frozen...
Lyria: Huh? Wait a second...
???: So... You were still here, it seems.
Lyria hears the voice once again while inspecting the citizens and faces the direction it came from.
Lyria: That voice... It's the same one I heard earlier calling us kind...
Lyria: You... You're the one causing the ice, aren't you?
Lyria: But why would you do something like this?
???: I am merely serving my purpose.
Lyria: Your purpose?
Macula Marius: I am called Macula Marius. I serve only Mother Nature—protecting her glory and bringing retribution to those who would sully her beauty.
Macula Marius: The skydwellers here have abused the privilege granted to them to coexist with nature. I merely dealt retributive justice.
Macula Marius: And you, foolish ones, are also complicit. Now you must face judgment for your actions.
  1. We've gotta take her on!
  2. Is that what you really want to do?

Choose: We've gotta take her on!
Lyria: Wait a second, (Captain)!
Macula Marius: What is it now?

Choose: Is that what you really want to do?
Macula Marius: What did you say?
Continue 1
Lyria: Marius... You didn't really freeze the townspeople here, did you?
Macula Marius: ...!
Lyria: At first glance, they all appear frozen... But I can still feel the warmth of life within. I think they're just sleeping.
Macula Marius: ...
Lyria: Not only that, I can feel it... You've been struggling too.
Lyria: Maybe... Maybe you didn't want to do anything like this in the first place.
Macula Marius: ...!
Marius puts down her staff. As she looks down, the fearsome air she put on moments earlier seems to melt away.
Macula Marius: Of course I didn't... These skydwellers are also a part of Mother Nature herself. How could I want to punish them?
Macula Marius: Especially kindhearted souls such as yourselves—souls who clearly care for nature.
Macula Marius: However, if I were to leave them to their ways, the skydwellers would have destroyed what little nature remained here.
Macula Marius: The only way was to bring retribution upon them—even if it meant punishing something I loved.
Lyria: Marius...
Lyria: Um, this might be a big favor to ask of you now, but... could you wait a little longer before punishing the townspeople here?
Macula Marius: What?
Lyria: Not all of us are responsible for the damage done... There are plenty of us who love nature too!
Lyria: We'll do everything we can to protect the natural life here, too!
Lyria: And I... I don't want you to suffer any longer either, Marius.
Macula Marius: Even as I threaten you all with judgment, you worry for my suffering.
Macula Marius: You truly are kindhearted souls... Such warmth could even melt a heart of ice.
Macula Marius: Very well. But I won't wait for long.
Without another word, Marius releases the citizens from her icy stranglehold and disappears without a trace.
Vyrn: Huh... So that's what happened while I was out.
Vyrn: But still, uh, that doesn't explain what's going on right here.
Macula Marius: Hehehe... I have decided to overlook their transgressions for now. Rather, taking a journey together across the skies is a much more natural solution, yes?
Vyrn: Yeah, I mean... That's fine too, but... Since when did you guys become all buddy-buddy with each other?
Macula Marius: Hehehe...
Marius laughs softly and ruffles (Captain)'s and Lyria's hair affectionately.
Macula Marius: You are all part of nature, which I have sworn to love and protect. It's only fitting that I share that love with you as well.
Macula Marius: So don't be shy... Come here and let me give you some head pats.
Vyrn: Haha... Welp. Looks like we've got ourselves another character in our crew, huh.
Vyrn somewhat reluctantly receives his head pats.
Electing to skirt her duties for the time being, Marius joins the Grandcypher as a new member of (Captain)'s crew.

A Watchful Guardian

Nightmares of past events disturb Macula Marius in her sleep. During the War, she took lives from both primal beasts and skydwellers alike in order to protect nature from destruction. However, it was a painful endeavor that haunts her to this day. Concerned for her well-being, (Captain) and the crew decide to take her along on a journey.

Macula Marius: Ngh... Agh...
A nightmare of the past troubles Marius's sleep.
During the War, nature suffered at the hands of skydwellers, astrals, and primal beasts alike as a result of their battles.
Disheartened by those who would destroy nature's beauty to serve their own ambitions, Marius delivered icy judgment to those who failed her.
However, the act of taking lives proved to be far too painful for Marius.
Macula Marius: Protect Mother Nature... by punishing those who would harm her? What a joke...
Macula Marius: We are all part of Mother Nature. Punishing and killing those who would harm her is no different than killing a part of nature herself...
Macula Marius: How senseless... Am I no different than the skydwellers in the end?
Macula Marius: No, I must take action... If left to roam free, they will ravage what little nature remains... Yet, I...
Macula Marius: Wait. Perhaps there is still a way for them to coexist with nature. Surely...
During the events of the War, Marius had taken a neutral stance, choosing to protect nature and the skydwellers from destruction rather than fight.
However, centuries after the events of the War, skydwellers continue to ravage nature to this day.
Long has she endured their transgressions, clinging to hope.
Macula Marius: Please forgive me, dear nature... Just a little longer. The day will come when all can coexist in harmony, I know it...
Lyria: Marius... Marius!
Macula Marius: ...!
Huff... Puff...
Macula Marius: Lyria... And (Captain)? Vyrn, too...
Lyria: Thank goodness... Oh, um, sorry for suddenly barging into your room like this. We got worried after hearing your cries...
Macula Marius: Hehe... That's fine. The gesture is appreciated.
Vyrn: Are you okay though? If anything's bothering ya, don't hesitate to open up to us!
Macula Marius: This is nothing new... You need not concern yourself.
Marius laughs quietly to herself. She leaves the room, making sure to give everyone a gentle head pat on the way out.
Lyria: Um, where are you...
Macula Marius: Just going out for some fresh air. A little change of scenery, that's all. Once again, no need for alarm.
Vyrn: She says not to worry, but whatever was happening in here sounded pretty rough... It'd only be natural to worry after hearing that.
Vyrn: Sure would be nice if we could help her somehow, but she won't tell us anything...
Lyria: Well... at the very least, I hope she starts feeling better.
Lyria: Oh! I've just thought of an idea! Say, how about... Whisper, whisper...
Vyrn: Hmm... You may be onto something here. This might just be the ticket!
Vyrn: All right! Let's give it a shot!
Lyria: Yay! Let's do it! Come on, (Captain)! You too, Vyrn!
A few days later, (Captain) and Lyria invite Marius to join them on a special journey.
Macula Marius: I don't have any reason to refuse, but may I ask the purpose of this journey?
Lyria: Hehe... That's for you to find out when we get there!
Macula Marius: Oh?
Despite her visible reservations, Marius agrees to go along with (Captain) and the others on a journey.

A Watchful Guardian: Scene 2

The crew arrive at the town where they first met Macula Marius and find the townspeople in the midst of a tree-planting festival—a sharp contrast from their destructive ways in the past. Macula Marius is pleased to learn that thanks to (Captain) and the crew's efforts, the townspeople were convinced to live greener. However, a sudden explosion sets the nearby forest ablaze.

Macula Marius: This place...
The place that (Captain) has taken Marius is none other than the town where they first met.
However, the widespread construction and industry that once threatened nature here is no more. Instead, something else catches Marius's eye.
Macula Marius: The citizens... Are they planting flowers?
Townswoman: Not only flowers, miss! We're growing all kinds o' fruits and veggies here!
Lyria: It looks like the town is having a tree-growing festival of sorts!
Macula Marius: Hehe... How lovely. Although surely such a tradition did not exist here before.
Macula Marius: The skydwellers of this island had no interest in the wellbeing of mother nature. They destroyed whatever they needed for the growth of their town.
Townswoman: Ahaha... A shameful chapter of our history, really, but true nonetheless.
Townswoman: This festival isn't one we've had for long. In fact, it's a rather new tradition we've only just started.
Macula Marius: Oh? Well that certainly is unexpected. What could have convinced you to start such a custom?
Townsman: Up 'til not too long ago, we put all of our focus and effort into the growth of the town. Not much consideration was put into anythin' else.
Townsman: But ever since that one day where we all fell into a strange slumber, we've all had a change of heart.
Macula Marius: ...!
Townswoman: All I remember is the cold... I thought I'd never wake again. It was just awful.
Macula Marius: Yes, how terrible it must have been...
Townsman: Yeah, well... While we were in that dark place, we heard a voice tellin' us it was punishment from nature itself!
Macula Marius: ...
Townsman: That really got us thinkin'... We were only concerned 'bout our own gains, burnin' through all the natural resources around us.
Townswoman: After reflecting on what we'd been doing and then what happened to us, the signs were quite clear.
Townsman: We put a halt to all the development projects we had goin' on and chose to live more harmoniously with nature.
Macula Marius: Really now? But what about the prosperity of your town?
Macula Marius: Was the fear of nature's retribution enough to convince the whole town to reconsider?
Townswoman: Ahaha... You're a sharp one. There were indeed plenty who were vehemently against it.
Townsman: But for now I'd say most of us are on the same page, choosin' to live in harmony with nature.
Townsman: And we owe it all to (Captain) and the crew.
Macula Marius: This crew? What do you mean by that?
Townswoman: They came to our town countless times to persuade us to stop our destructive ways.
Townsman: In fact, they're the ones that helped us come up with ideas for this festival!
Macula Marius: Wait, when did you...
Lyria: Hehe... I thought you'd be happy to see more people taking care of nature.
Macula Marius: All this for me? Such kindhearted souls...
Vyrn: What are we waiting for? Enough thumb-twiddling, more thumb-greening!
Macula Marius: Very well! Let's show our appreciation for nature, a love as pure as the freshly melted ice.
Marius begins to happily partake in the festivities, helping the citizens plant seeds around the town.
Lyria: Aaaah!
A sudden explosion sets the forest around them ablaze.

A Watchful Guardian: Scene 3

The culprits responsible for the fires are two men who originally came to the island to profit on new construction projects, which have now been halted. Even after being confronted by the townspeople, they throw another oil bomb onto the fields, inciting Macula Marius's rage.

Hooligan 1: Whooo-eee! Ain't nothin' like explosives to do a little quick ground-leveling!
Hooligan 2: Hahaha! Once the dust clears, we'll be able to build whatever we want here!
The crew finds a couple of men laughing sinisterly as the greenery before them continues to burn.
Vyrn: Wh-what the heck are they doing!
Townswoman: Oh, those fellows... They just won't listen...
Macula Marius: Who are those rotten men? Do you know their identities?
Townsman: Those guys ain't from 'round here... They came on business to oversee the construction happenin' on this island.
Townsman: After we told 'em we'd be putting a stop to things, they've been harassing us nonstop.
Hooligan 1: Harassment? You've gotta be outta yer damn mind!
Hooligan 2: That whole thing about nature's punishment or whatever ain't nothin' more than simple mass hysteria—we've come to snap y'all out of it!
Townswoman: Don't be absurd! We all saw what happened and are well aware of our choices!
Hooligan 1: Nah, that's just more delusion-talk. Face it—there's no other reason why you'd change yer minds so quickly about the construction!
Hooligan 2: I mean, look at all the land on this island waitin' for buildin' to happen! So much wasted potential not lettin' us turn yer dinky town into somethin' truly great!
Hooligan 1: Right? You'll all get a taste of a lavish lifestyle, and we'll get paid! It's basic math... a win-win for everybody!
Vyrn: Don't try and kid us! We know you only care about the money!
Hooligan 1: And what's wrong with that? We need to get somethin' outta this place too, you know!
Hooligan 2: So whaddaya say? You can help us help you! Open your eyes and face this reality!
The man reveals a flaming bottle in his hand and hurls it into one of the townspeople's freshly-planted fields.
Townswoman: Wh-what in blazes are you doing? Our hard work... The plants...
Hooligan 1: Better wake up and smell the roses soon... Before the whole town goes up! Hahahah!
Vyrn: These jerks... (Captain)! We've gotta do something about—
Macula Marius: Unforgivable...
Vyrn: Yikes!
Macula Marius: Foolish skydwellers, hearts as cold as ice...
Hooligan 1: You say somethin', lady? Or are you with the rest o' these sheep here? We'll gladly open your eyes to reality too!
Hooligan 1: H-huh? Aaaargh!
Hooligan 2: Wh-what's with your hand? I-it's frozen solid!
Ignoring their cries, Marius advances on the two men.
With each of her steps, the ground beneath crystallizes to frost, putting out the nearby fires.
Macula Marius: Pitiful, benighted skydwellers... choose your final words wisely.
Macula Marius: For the hour of judgment has come.

A Watchful Guardian: Scene 4

Macula Marius uses her magic to create an ethereal vision of a glimmering landscape, lush with natural beauty, convincing the culprits to put their effort into beautifying the nature around them instead. She realizes now that change can be brought forth without taking lives, and her faith that someday skydwellers and nature will coexist in harmony remains unshaken.

Hooligans: Eeeyargh!
Macula Marius: Your cries will not help you now. Your fate is sealed.
Vyrn: H-hey... Let's all calm down!
Lyria: Wait, Marius! If you punish these people... If you do that...
Lyria: Marius... You'll surely regret it!
Macula Marius: This is your judgment.
Lyria: Nooo!
Lyria's cries go unanswered, and Marius unleashes a wave of frigid sorcery before her.
However, the frosty wave seems to miss the mark. Instead, the surrounding plants and trees begin to blossom and crystallize—a glimmering yet lush landscape is created before their very eyes.
Lyria: H-huh?
Hooligan 1: Wha... Were we saved?
Hooligan 2: Hey... Look at that... It-it's breathtaking.
Macula Marius: So you are capable of seeing its beauty... But the true splendor of nature is even greater.
With those words and a wave of her staff, the icy vision vanishes before the onlookers.
Macula Marius: You there... You said you wished to make money, yes?
Hooligan 2: Huh? Well, yeah...
Macula Marius: Then restore the nature here to its former glory. Surely there is profit to be found in tourism as well?
Macula Marius: Can you find it in your heart to live in harmony with nature?
Hooligan 1: ...
Hooligan 2: Say... You think y'all could let us help you plant some trees? C'mon, please...
Hooligan 1: Yeah, we'll help restore all that land we burned too... I don't even care about the cash anymore.
Hooligan 1: All I want is to see a landscape even more breathtaking than the one she showed us...
Hooligan 2: I guess we were the ones that needed to wake up. We can see clearly now though!
Townswoman: Of course! You're both still welcome to help us!
After a change of heart, the two would-be villains join the other townspeople in planting trees.
Lyria: Yay! That's great, isn't it, Marius?
Macula Marius: Oh, Lyria? What is it, do you want more head pats?
Lyria: Yes... Uh, I mean, not now! Um... You said you would be judging them, so...
Macula Marius: Oh, Lyria... I didn't mean to worry you. But I did stay true to my word.
Lyria: Huh?
Macula Marius: We all make mistakes... But I saw that skydwellers can learn from them, just as the citizens here have done.
Macula Marius: Teaching them the error of their ways and giving them a chance to redeem themselves is also a form of judgment. It doesn't need to involve taking a life.
Macula Marius: To not realize this is my own failure... I must have been too focused to see the whole picture.
Macula Marius: It is thanks to you that I can see clearly. Lyria, (Captain), and you too, Vyrn... You have my gratitude.
Lyria: Hehe... You're welcome!
The crew joins the townspeople once more in their festivities, helping to plant seeds all around the island.
As everyone is busy enjoying themselves, Marius takes a moment of reflection alone.
Macula Marius: (These skydwellers were able to start anew... Surely the same could be said for all of us.)
Macula Marius: (And the day where nature can coexist in harmony with all... it may be close.)
Marius smiles to herself and lets a sigh of relief escape her lips.
Thanks to the events that transpired today, surely her dreams will be a little sweeter from now on.
