Happy Birthday Cutscenes
# Link Text
1

Happy birthday, (Captain).
Could you stick out your pinky? This might come as a bit of a shock, but...
I'm connecting your pinky to my hair's- W-wait! Don't wory!
Can you see the magic connecting us? My hair's just a vessel for it.
This magic will keep you from harm. A birthday present that I hope will keep you safe in the year to come.
I can't do everything... but I can do this much at least. Hehe... surprised?

2

Happy birthday, (Captain). I'm glad I can celebrate today with you again.
Did my good luck charm from last year help? I know you certainly thought tying my hair to your finger was strange at the time.
You're always putting yourself on the front lines, and I just wanted to do anything I could to help.
This year I'll give you twice the hair for twice the luck!
Thanks for everything, (Captain)!

3

Happy birthday, (Captain)!
Hehe, and you know what that means! Time to tie on another hair charm to your finger!
Can I see your hand?
Teehee... I'm really glad you put your trust in me.
When I'm alone on the battlefield, I can only wield my power for myself.
But it's when I use my hair to protect you that I really shine!
So I hope you'll keep letting me support you.
Keep fighting the good fight, (Captain). Let's have each other's backs.

Happy New Year Cutscenes

1

Happy New Year, (Captain). Anything on your mind as we enter the new year?
Me? I want to make greater strides than I did last year.
What will I lose? What will I gain? Should I fearlessly continue walking this path or pick another one?
Even if there's no obvious right answer, I want to make a choice myself and stick to it.
And if we can't create a future we can all be satisfied with... I at least want to believe in the path I've chosen for myself.
I'm facing up to things now. That's how it's been ever since I met you and joined the crew, (Captain).
And for that... I want to say thanks.

2

Happy New Year, (Captain).
I've noticed recently your hair's all dried out.
Here, I want you to take this. Think of it as a New Year's present from me.
Try using it sometime. It'll add luster and moisture to your hair all the way down to the roots.
To maintain healthy hair, you need to take good care of your roots and scalp.
Give your head a good massage with it the next time you take a bath.
A head of sleek, lustrous hair will do wonders for your overall appearance.
I was thinking of how I could help you out someway as thanks for all you do... I'm glad I was able to give you this.
Hehe. Happy New Year!

3

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Someone just showed me how to write my resolutions using fancy calligraphy.
But what I found out was my penmanship is much better when I use my hair instead of a brush!
That proves how much I've gotten better at controlling my hair, doesn't it?
And I still think there's room to improve this year!
Hehe! I'm going to train super hard some more!

Valentine's Day Cutscenes

Happy Valentine's, (Captain).
I ground up some cornmeal and made you pancakes. They should go great with chocolate sauce.
Corn is a fantastic source of energy, so eat up and grow strong!
O-of course I didn't put any of my hair in there! Don't even joke about that.
Geez. Keep this up and I'm calling off Valentine's pancakes entirely...

2

Happy Valentine's, (Captain). I made you cornmeal pancakes again this year.
Corn really is magical... You can use it to make anything from cakes to chowder. It's tasty just on its own as well.
So eat up, (Captain), and you'll grow even stronger!
See, I wanted to make you something extra nice as thanks for everything you do...
I didn't want to risk messing it up on the big day though, and cornmeal pancakes are my specialty.
Oh, d-did you like it? I can tell by the look on your face. I'm so glad... Hehe.
Umm... Well, I made a whole bunch just in case. Do you want some more?
Hehe, of course you do. One plate alone isn't enough to fill you up!

3

Um, (Captain)?
This is a Valentine's Day gift for you!
It's the cornmeal pancakes you like, except this year I added a secret ingredient.
Here's a hint: it's something the eye can't see.
You get it, don't you?
And after you eat them, you'll power up to the max!
Yeah! So, um... Buh-bye!

Happy White Day... Oh? You got me something?
Oh, how wonderful!
Since it's from you, (Captain), I bet it'll recover my energy even more than corn!
Hehehe... Thanks!

2

Oof... Ooh...
(Captain)... I-is that you?

With corn already in hand, (Captain) delivers the usual remedy to Melissabelle, who has collapsed once again.

Om, nom... Nom...
Ahh... (Captain)! Oh, it looks like it happened again... I'm sorry. And thanks.

(Captain) continues feeding the corn to Melissabelle to nurse her back to health.

Hmm... Om, nom...
Wow... Simply delectable! It's so rich... and creamy.
Where did you find this corn? It was superb... Thank you. But what's the occasion?
What! Today's White Day? Oh, so that's why...
I'm sorry you have to see me like this on such a special day...
Sniff... Thanks so much, (Captain). It was delicious!

3

White Day's here... I wonder if (Captain) got me anything? Wouldn't that be so nice...
Heehee...
Erk...
Hi, (Captain). What brings you here?
Huh? A gift for White Day?
Wow! Can I really have it?
Actually, I was just saying to myself how nice it'd be to get a return gift from you.
Whoo-hoo! This is great! Thank you very much, (Captain)!

T-trick or treat, (Captain)...
Y-yeah, I'm starving, but today's Halloween...
And everyone keeps tricking me... instead of treating me...
Haha... I'm just about to hit empty... Give me some treats... please...

2

Trick or treat! I made sure to eat up so that I can enjoy Halloween.
Hm? You're on your way to get some pumpkin pie? That sounds tasty. I'll go with you.
Hm? W-well, I did eat a lot, but...
I-it's just a snack! There's always some room for pie!
Hehe. Pumpkin pie... I can't wait!

Happy Holidays Cutscenes

1

Happy holidays!
It's really cold today... You look cold too. Which means there's only one thing to do.
I'll wrap you up in my hair! Well? Feeling warmer?
Gasp! The color's draining from your face!
I just wanted to warm you up, but I went too far. Hold on. I'm loosening my grip!
I'm... sorry.

2

Say, (Captain). What comes to your mind when you think of the holidays?
For me... all it reminds me of is the pain of watching the corn fields wither away.
Where I'm from, it's warm enough for the corn to grow all year round.
Just the thought that there's a time when it'd be too cold for corn to live... Brrr...
That fateful night... That's when I first experienced that kind of horror.
It was so cold that night... So cold...

3

Happy holidays.
Isn't it around bedtime for good little girls and boys, (Captain)?
Soon Santa will be placing presents right by their pillows.
You should get to bed too if you don't want to miss out.
Feeling cold? Okay, I'll slip under the covers with you.
I'll wrap your body in my hair and spin you around to generate warmth.
I used to do that for my little brothers back home. Haha, good times...

Questions in the Cornfield[edit]

The crew encounters a Harvin girl known as Melissabelle in the forest, who possesses the power to manipulate her golden locks at will. Seeking information on those who want the rumored power of her radiant hair for themselves, she joins (Captain)'s crew.



After finishing a request, the crew heads through a sun-dappled forest path.
???: Ughh... Huff...
Vyrn: Hm? Did anyone else hear something just now?
Lyria: There's something over there! Is that... a hammock?
Lyria points up. Suspended between the trees is something that resembles a hammock.
Vyrn: Is that where that voice came from? I'm going up there to take a look!
Vyrn: Hey! Is someone up here?
Vyrn: Whoa!
Vyrn peeks inside the hammock and finds a Harvin girl.
???: Rgh...
Vyrn: A-are you okay? What are you doin' up here?
???: I'm so...
Vyrn: What?
???: I'm so... hungry...
Vyrn: Hang in there! Uh, I mean... You're already in a hammock, but you know what I mean!
The girl collapses, and the hammock begins falling from the trees.
Lyria: Oh no! We have to catch her!
The girl plummets from the collapsing hammock, but (Captain) catches her at the last second.
Vyrn: Whew! Had me on pins and needles there!
Lyria: Huh? I thought that was a hammock up there, but...
When the crew takes a closer look at the hammock's fallen fiber strands, they realize they all flow out of the girl's head.
Lyria: Is this... hair?
Vyrn: Holy cow, it is! And it's super long!
???: Hrgh...
Vyrn: Are you okay? She said she was starvin', (Captain). Got anything for her to eat?
(Captain) gives a piece of fruit to the girl.
???: Hngh... H-huh?
Lyria: Are you all right?
???: Who are you? And... why are you holding me?
Vyrn: Looks like she's come to.
???: Um...
After scanning her surroundings, the girl makes an attempt to stand up.
???: Okay then... Huh?
???: Oof... I can't move...
Vyrn: Don't push yourself! You collapsed earlier after all.
???: Ugh... You're right... Who are you guys anyway?
Vyrn: We're skyfarers! We just happened to see you up in the trees on our way back to town.
???: T-then does that mean you... saved me?
Lyria: Yes! I'm so relieved to see you're okay after that fall. Does anything hurt?
???: ...
???: I'm fine, thanks... I've caused you a lot of trouble though.
Lyria: Not at all! We're just glad you're okay!
Vyrn: Where do you live? We can bring you back home while you're recovering!
???: Huh? W-well um...
???: I-if you insist...
Cradled in (Captain)'s arms, the girl humbly accepts the offer.
The crew delivers her to a cabin nestled deep within the mountains.
Her name is Melissabelle, she says, and she raises corn in the nearby fields.
Melissabelle: If you want corn, I've got plenty. Eat as much as you'd like!
Vyrn: Don't mind if I do!
The crew starts to eat from a towering pile of corn on the cob, and Melissabelle follows suit.
Melissabelle: Whew... I'm feeling like my old self again. Back to the land of the living...
After finishing an ear of corn, Melissabelle's hair begins to shimmer with an even greater intensity.
Lyria: Oh my gosh, your hair is so shiny! It's like some kind of sparkling golden treasure!
Vyrn: What's up with that, anyway? You were using it to hang from the trees earlier!
Melissabelle: Oh... Magical energies reside within my hair. I can use that magic to control it. To some degree, anyway.
Vyrn: Wow! That sounds like it could comb in handy!
Melissabelle: Heheh... I'm glad you were the ones that saved me.
Melissabelle: I was worried you might be after my hair, so I've been a little on edge.
Melissabelle: But I can see now that you're very kind and wonderful people. I'm sorry for doubting you.
Vyrn: No worries! Did something happen earlier? Why were you starvin' to the point of collapse?
Melissabelle: It seems I fell asleep during my trip to the forest...
Melissabelle: When I woke up, I was so hungry I could barely move. I really blew it this time...
Vyrn: You were just sleeping? Talk about weird.
Lyria: You mentioned people were after your hair. Are you being targeted?
Melissabelle: Well—
Monsters: Squeak!
Lyria: Oh no! Monsters are running amok in the cornfields!
Melissabelle: Aaah!
Lyria: It's too dangerous to fight them by yourself!
The crew chases after Melissabelle toward the cornfields.
Melissabelle: How dare you!
As if reflecting her rage, Melissabelle's hair forms into a scythe to strike back at the rampaging monsters.
Monsters: Squeak!
Melissabelle's fearsome hair follicles send the monsters flying in all directions.
Vyrn: Talk about hair-raising! That was incredible, Melissabelle! We didn't even need to raise a finger!
Melissabelle: Augh... I'm drained...
Lyria: What's wrong?
Melissabelle suddenly collapses, sending (Captain) and company into a panic.
Melissabelle: I'm starving...
Vyrn: Again?
The crew gives Melissabelle some of the leftover corn, and her energy soon returns.
Melissabelle: Huh? Oh... I did it again.
Vyrn: Where's your crazy appetite comin' from? Never seen anyone collapse over and over from hunger like that. Are you sick?
Melissabelle: Actually... this hair of mine sucks up all the nutrients from whatever food I eat, so I'm pretty much always hungry.
Melissabelle: And if I use my hair like I did before, it can drain me in an instant.
Lyria: Gasp! So that's what happened!
Vyrn: Sounds rough...
Melissabelle: I need all that corn to recover my stamina, but I got carried away trying to protect it... Now look at me.
Melissabelle: I still can't get over how kind you all are. You barely know me, but you've gone so far out of your way to help me.
Lyria: You're a person in need! Anyone would do the same!
Melissabelle: Plenty of people think they'd help someone like me, but not many act on it. You're amazing. All of you.
Melissabelle: Hey, you said you were skyfarers, right?
Vyrn: In the flesh!
Melissabelle: I have a request. Would it... be okay if I joined your crew?
Vyrn: Huh? Listen, we can tell you're strong after that little display earlier, but... why?
Melissabelle: I'm gathering information on a certain group of people, but I can't do much on my own.
Melissabelle: Having to stay out of sight makes it difficult to find what I'm looking for.
Melissabelle: If I join your crew, I'll be able to catch rumors and gather info from across the skies.
Vyrn: So that's what you're thinking. Sounds good to me! You're way tougher than you look! That's for sure!
Melissabelle: Thank you. I have a feeling that joining your crew will put my goal within reach.
Lyria: Your goal?
Melissabelle: Yeah. I'm going to find them... and shave their heads.
Vyrn: Shave their heads? This just got weird!
Melissabelle: I want to deliver payback to those who once forcefully took the hair from my head.
Vyrn: You mentioned some people who were after your hair. Are these the guys you were talkin' about?
Melissabelle: Yeah. My hair is said to have the power to bring happiness and heal incurable disease.
Lyria: Huh?
Vyrn: Seriously?
Melissabelle: To be perfectly honest, I'm not so sure how it works myself. But that's what the old stories say.
Melissabelle: They say that every once in a blue moon, a child with hair like mine is born into my clan. Apparently I have ancestors who had long hair just like me.
Melissabelle: But as for what the powers of my hair are, or why my hair keeps growing... I couldn't really tell you.
Melissabelle: Few records of my clan's ancient past exist at all, let alone anything confirming the details.
Lyria: After seeing your hair sparkle earlier, I'm definitely willing to believe it has special powers!
Melissabelle: Yeah. But one day some grown-ups I'd never seen before suddenly locked me up and cut my hair off.
Melissabelle: They blindfolded me and tied me up. The only thing I could hear was the sound of the clippers cutting away...
Lyria: That's horrible!
Melissabelle: My hair grows back fast, but... that didn't make the fear and shame I felt any less real...
Melissabelle: That's why I want to find them and make them feel the same way I did. I want them to experience the pain they've inflicted on others.
Vyrn: So that's the story. Guess that explains why you want to shave their heads...
  1. You better not do that to us!
  2. Can you grow hair too?

Choose: You better not do that to us!
Melissabelle: Of course! I wouldn't think of hurting others just for a prank.
Melissabelle: I would never do something so terrible to those who did nothing to deserve it.

Choose: Can you grow hair too?
Melissabelle: Yes, I can.
Vyrn: What kind of question is that?
Continue 1
Melissabelle: If you're ever worried about your hair, I can probably help you. We can talk about it if it comes up.
Djeeta is the Main Character

(Captain) has felt irritation in her scalp and decides to speak to Melissabelle about it later.
Gran is the Main Character

(Captain) decides that if he ever notices something strange with his hair, he'll be sure to talk to Melissabelle about it.
Melissabelle: I'll do my best to make sure my eating habits don't impact the rest of the crew. I'm looking forward to working with all of you!
Melissabelle shakes hands with the crew. Everyone is overjoyed to have her as a new crewmember.

Secret of the Golden Locks[edit]

Vyrn and (Captain) are keeping watch on deck when a white owl appears to deliver a letter and corn on the cob from Melissabelle's parents. After fastening a letter of her own to the owl's leg, she works with (Captain) to ensure the bird has a safe return flight.



Silence falls over the ship as night draws near.
(Captain) and the others are keeping watch from the observation deck, when they spot a flying white object near the bow of the ship.
Vyrn: Hm? What's that?
The flying object enters the Grandcypher's flight path.
Vyrn: At this rate, we're gonna smash into it!
As the ship draws closer, it slowly becomes apparent what the object actually is.
Owl: Hoot, hoot!
Vyrn: It's an owl! Why's it heading toward us?
The owl swoops onto the deck of the ship.
Unfortunately for the owl, it botches the landing. The parcels attached to its feet are sent flying as it spins through the air.
Owl: Hoot, hoot!
Vyrn: That's one clumsy owl! What's in these parcels, anyway? Oh! There's corn in here!
Melissabelle: Ah! Bianco?
Vyrn: Hm? This owl's a friend of yours, Melissabelle?
Melissabelle: Yeah. He's my family's carrier owl. You really need to work on your landings though, Bianco.
Bianco: Hoot, hoot!
Vyrn: Wow. He's really attached to you! How'd he know you were here?
Melissabelle: I'm not sure myself. No matter where I go, he always manages to find me.
Melissabelle: He always brings me corn on the cob and letters from my family.
Vyrn: He might be clumsy, but that's one smart bird!
Bianco: Hoot, hoot!
Bianco proudly extends a foot toward Melissabelle.
Melissabelle: That's a good owl. I wrote this letter. Make sure it gets back home, okay?
Bianco: Hoot, hoot!
The owl begins to vanish into the inky blackness of the night to return Melissabelle's letter to her family.
Monster: Skrawwk!
Bianco: Hoot, hoot!
Bianco doesn't make it very far before a flying monster swoops in to attack.
Melissabelle: Watch out, Bianco! Head back to the ship!
Vyrn: This is bad! We've gotta save him!

Secret of the Golden Locks: Scene 2[edit]

The crew is taking a break from searching for information on Melissabelle's assailants. Suddenly a berserk woman appears and demands Melissabelle return her deceased daughter.



The crew visits an island to search for information on the people aiming to steal Melissabelle's hair.
Before heading to their next destination, (Captain) and company decide to relax at a nearby lake.
Melissabelle: Hey Lyria. Wanna help comb my hair?
Lyria: Of course!
Vyrn: Taking care of all that hair looks like a pain...
Melissabelle: It is. Just combing takes hours, so this is a really big help. Thanks so much!
Lyria: Sure thing! Just leave it to me!
Vyrn: And if you ever feel yourself getting hungry, just let us know!
Melissabelle: Haha, thanks. Mmm... I should be okay for now.
For a brief moment, the crew carefully tends to Melissabelle's flowing locks.
But this moment of tranquility soon comes to an end.
Vyrn: Who's there?
Crazed Woman: Give her back...
Melissabelle: Huh?
Crazed Woman: Give me back my daughter!
A group of ruffians suddenly appear. On the crazed woman's signal, they spring into action, ready to attack Melissabelle.
Vyrn: Whoa! This just got crazy in a hurry, (Captain)! We've gotta stop her!

Secret of the Golden Locks: Scene 3[edit]

The woman explains that she sought Melissabelle's hair in the hope of curing her sick daughter but failed when Melissabelle went missing. Wracked with remorse, Melissabelle apologizes to the woman after giving her a single strand of her hair.



The crew manages to stop the berserk woman, but the spiteful, bitter way she looks at Melissabelle has only grown more hateful.
Crazed Woman: O long-haired princess! Why didn't you save my daughter?
Vyrn: What's she talking about?
Crazed Woman: They said she was incurable. The doctors wrote her off as a lost cause. I had given up all hope. But then I started to hear the rumors...
Crazed Woman: Rumors of a long-haired princess! Oh, if I could just get my hands on those golden locks of hers, my daughter would be saved!
Vyrn: Wha...
Melissabelle: ...
Crazed Woman: I thought it was just a folktale, but then I heard that just such a princess had been born for the first time in centuries!
Crazed Woman: For you to be born at the moment my daughter and I needed you most? That's a miracle! A radiant, royal miracle!
Crazed Woman: Can you imagine our joy? Can you fathom our hope? That hair of yours was all that stood between my daughter and the clutches of the reaper!
Crazed Woman: Then we found out you had left your country. Where had you gone? Where?
Crazed Woman: I sank into the depths of despair. A few days later, my daughter passed.
Melissabelle: ...
Crazed Woman: Ohh... Sob... Why? Why didn't you save her?
Crazed Woman: Why... Why!
Crazed Woman: You just want to keep that power for yourself, don't you!
Crazed Woman: Sob... If only... If only you had been there!
Lyria: Oh my gosh...
Crazed Woman: Ohhh...
Melissabelle: ...
Vyrn: Hey, Melissabelle!
With an air of sadness, Melissabelle removes a single hair and places it in the woman's hand.
Melissabelle: I'm... I'm sorry...
Lyria: Melissabelle...
Vyrn: None of this is your fault.
Vyrn: She's just passed out. Let's head back before she wakes up.

Secret of the Golden Locks: Scene 4[edit]

Vyrn and Lyria offer words of encouragement to a distraught Melissabelle. Her owl returns with a letter from her parents, who are overjoyed that she's managed to find dependable friends.



Melissabelle: ...
Crazed Woman: Ohhh... Sob... Why? Why didn't you save her?
Crazed Woman: You just want to keep that power for yourself, don't you!
Crazed Woman: Sob... If only... If only you had been there!
Melissabelle: ...
Vyrn: So this is where you were.
Melissabelle: Lyria... Vyrn... (Captain)...
Lyria: It's already dark. You're going to catch a cold out here!
Melissabelle seems incapable of responding and continues staring out into the distance.
Melissabelle: Sorry for hiding the whole thing about me being a princess. There's just so much that's been happening lately...
Vyrn: Don't worry about it. Everyone has things they can't talk about.
Melissabelle: I was born into the royal family of a small kingdom. I've got two little brothers too.
Melissabelle: My kingdom is small, but long ago there was no divide between royalty and the common people.
Melissabelle: Everyone helped each other. They worked together. Wept together. Laughed together.
Melissabelle: But after I was born, that pleasant kingdom my parents knew slowly started to change.
Melissabelle: And it was all because I, the long-haired princess spoken of in legend, had been born.
Lyria: ...
Melissabelle: It wasn't just my kingdom. A lot of people in the surrounding lands also knew of the power my hair possessed.
Melissabelle: Then the hair hunters came, and with them people who wanted to protect me... or shun me.
Melissabelle: We were all supposed to live in peace and happiness. But those days were gone.
Melissabelle: Nothing was more painful than seeing how divided everyone was and knowing it was my fault.
Melissabelle: To end the conflict, I left my homeland and concealed my whereabouts.
Melissabelle: I live every day to ensure that no one knows where I am.
Lyria: Even your family?
Melissabelle: Yes. Bianco is the only connection I have left.
With her head hung low, Melissabelle continues.
Melissabelle: I don't know whether or not this hair of mine has the power the legends say it does.
Melissabelle: If someone's hurt or tired, I can heal them. That much is true.
Vyrn: Oh yeah?
Melissabelle: But I never even considered keeping my power to myself.
Melissabelle: I never wanted to keep this power from others. Never.
Melissabelle: If there's someone I can help, I want to help them. I want them to get the help they need.
Melissabelle: ...
Melissabelle: Hey, (Captain). Is what I'm doing... wrong?
Melissabelle: If I just gave all my hair away when those people attacked, do you think that woman's daughter would still be alive?
Melissabelle questions herself sincerely. Wracked with doubt, her eyes waver anxiously.
Vyrn: Nobody can know for sure, Melissabelle.
Vyrn: What I do know is hurtin' other people just to help yourself is no good!
Vyrn: That woman and those guys who attacked you back in your kingdom both did something they shouldn't have!
Vyrn: You haven't done anything wrong! So stop thinkin' you have!
Melissabelle: Vyrn...
Lyria: I... I was captured by people who wanted to use my power too.
Melissabelle: Really, Lyria?
Lyria: I thought about my powers a lot. Why I have them, what I was put here for...
Lyria: But then Katalina brought me into the outside world, and (Captain) showed me so many wonderful places.
Lyria: I realized my powers could help those important to me. I realized I wanted to use my powers to protect them.
Melissabelle: ...
Lyria: I don't know if what I'm doing is right or wrong.
Lyria: But I know this is what I want to do. Does that make it wrong? And does that make what you're doing wrong too, Melissabelle?
Melissabelle: Lyria...
  1. Lyria's right.
  2. Vyrn's right.

Choose: Lyria's right.
Melissabelle: Oh, (Captain)... I wonder if I'll ever think of it like that...

Choose: Vyrn's right.
Melissabelle: (Captain)... You're too nice.
Continue 1
From out of the darkness, a brilliant white bird draws close to the ship once again.
Melissabelle: Bianco!
Vyrn: He stuck the landing this time!
Bianco: Hoot, hoot!
Melissabelle: Nicely done, Bianco. You've been practicing, haven't you?
Melissabelle removes the letter from the owl's leg and calmly reads it.
Melissabelle: ...
The letter is full of happy congratulations from Melissabelle's parents, who are overjoyed to hear she's found steadfast friends.
Melissabelle: Mom... Dad...
Lyria: Hehe! You're surrounded by strong, dependable friends!
Melissabelle: They want me to stop worrying about the kingdom and do my best to stay out of danger...
Vyrn: Sounds like your mom and dad are some standup folks!
Melissabelle: (Captain). I've made those precious to me worry and caused trouble for everyone.
Melissabelle: But still...
Melissabelle: I want use the opportunity provided by this journey to figure out what it is I can do... and what I have to do.
Melissabelle continues to grapple with the meaning of her life.
Doubt still lingers within her eyes. But the determination demonstrated by her words is undeniably real.
Lyria: Okay! We'll figure it out together!
Vyrn: Yeah! We'll do everything we can to help!
Melissabelle searches for a path to follow on her journey with (Captain). But the kind of path that it will become, no one knows.

Wishing for Altitude[edit]

After saving Melissabelle from accidental starvation, Charlotta decides to shadow the (relatively) tall Harvin in a desperate attempt to increase her own height. Despite her sincere belief in the efficacy of her efforts, Charlotta simply ends up eating and sleeping too much and swiftly balloons in size.



???: Hrgh... Somebody...
Charlotta: Hm? That's the unmistakable sound of someone crying out for help!
Melissabelle: Hngh... Rgh...
Charlotta: If it isn't Melissabelle! Whatever happened? Did you come under attack?
Melissabelle: I'm so... hungry... Rgh...
Charlotta: Wha! Melissabelle!
Melissabelle: Charlotta... Thank you... for saving me...
Charlotta: Think nothing of it. My main concern is whether that apple I had will be enough to satiate you for the time being.
Melissabelle: Yes! It was delicious!
Charlotta: If I may offer a word of advice, you mustn't push yourself to the breaking point like this. It's exceedingly dangerous!
Melissabelle: I just... forgot to bring corn with me, and ended up falling asleep somewhere. I'm really sorry...
Melissabelle tells Charlotta she'd like to repay her, but the knee-high knight isn't quite ready to accept.
Charlotta: Think nothing of it! Saving you was simply the right thing to do!
Melissabelle: Huh? B-but... I have to—
Charlotta: No, no! For a knight who strives to follow a code of purity, fidelity, and nobility, demanding something in return would bring only shame!
Charlotta: Heheh... If you find me in a similar predicament and return the favor, that should be sufficient.
Melissabelle: Got it... If you end up in trouble, just let me know, Charlotta!
Charlotta: You have my word!
Charlotta: This may be changing the subject, but I simply can't get over how beautiful your hair is, Melissabelle!
Charlotta: Hrm... And on top of that, you seem fairly tall upon further inspection.
Charlotta: Would it... be acceptable if we measured our heights against each other? Stand shoulder to shoulder?
Melissabelle: Sure. That's fine.
Charlotta places the apple—or what remains of it—on her head and stands next to Melissabelle.
Charlotta: Egad! You're over an apple taller than me!
Melissabelle: Now that you mention it... I am the tallest person in my family.
Charlotta: Is that so! Absolutely incredible!
Charlotta: If I may... I believe I have a request for you after all, Melissabelle.
The conversation quickly shifts to an in-depth discussion of Charlotta's greatest concern: her lack of physical stature.
Charlotta: I beg of you! Tell me the secret to becoming taller!
Melissabelle: If you wanted me to make your hair longer, I'd know what to do...
Melissabelle: But... O-okay! We have to help each other out!
Charlotta: Truly? In that case... I'd like to spend a day closely observing you!
Melissabelle: Huh? A day... observing me?
Charlotta: Yes! I believe that may point me in the direction of tallness most exceptional!
Melissabelle willingly accepts Charlotta's earnest request.
Melissabelle: First... let's eat.
Charlotta: Astounding! Is this the corn you eat so much of, Melissabelle?
Charlotta: Personally I find corn to be quite sweet and delicious!
Melissabelle: These were grown and harvested in my homeland. They're super sweet and delicious.
Charlotta: Oh my! So this is the taste of your homeland? Eating this is sure to make me taller!
Charlotta: Whew! That ranks among some of the most delicious corn I've ever eaten!
Melissabelle: Hee hee... I'm glad you like it.
Charlotta: Well, how do I look? It feels like I'm a little taller already!
Melissabelle: Hm... You seem about the same... I think?
Charlotta: Is that so... Perhaps! But my quest for tallness is only beginning!
Melissabelle: Now that my energy has returned, I'm going to do a little training to improve control over my hair.
Charlotta: Hrm... Very much understood! May I join you? I can duel you with my sword!
Melissabelle: Please do! Now then... here I come!
Charlotta: En garde!
Melissabelle: Energy... max! Capillus Ataxia!
Charlotta: To fulfill this blade's oath... Noble Execution!
Melissabelle: Wow... That was incredible!
Melissabelle: I heard you were the captain of an order of knights, but... you're really super strong!
Melissabelle: I haven't gotten the chance to fight beside you until now, so getting to see you in action was really impressive!
Charlotta: You're going to make me blush!
Charlotta: Nonetheless! I was most impressed with the incredible show of force you put on with those golden locks of yours!
Melissabelle: They sometimes move on their own, so I have to be able to keep them under control...
Melissabelle: When bad people or monsters are close by, they can end up flying off before I want them to.
Charlotta: I-is that so!
Melissabelle: They only do that when I'm scared, though, so please don't be alarmed.
Melissabelle: Oogh... All that moving around really drained my energy... I'm starving again.
Charlotta: Huh? But you just ate!
Charlotta: However... eating mass quantities may just be the key to growing taller...
Charlotta: Understood! I'll prepare the meal this time!
Melissabelle: Wow... There's even a little flag on it!
Charlotta: It's a kid's meal! The flag is an indispensable ingredient that simply screams fun!
Charlotta: These meals are exceedingly delicious and a personal favorite of mine!
Melissabelle: I've never had one before, but it looks great! Time to dig in...
Charlotta: My word! This is your first kid's meal? Then you might grow even taller with this!
Charlotta: Whew... I completely overate...
Melissabelle: Are you okay? Do you need water?
Charlotta: No, that won't be necessary... Even when I'm less than famished, I find it difficult to resist when my favorite food is in front of me.
Melissabelle: Hee hee... I'm sure you'll get hungry again after a little exercise. Let's resume our training!
Several days pass.
???: Hrgh...
Vyrn: What the? Did you collapse from starvation again, Goldilocks?
Charlotta: Hrgh... Please... I simply can't eat any more...
Vyrn: Wait a sec! Charlotta? What happened to you? And why can't you eat?
Melissabelle: She's been living my lifestyle for the past few days. I think her stomach may be at its limit.
Vyrn: Say what?
Melissabelle explains the situation to a very confused Vyrn.
Vyrn: Huh... So you were copying Goldilocks here to see if you could make yourself grow a few inches?
Vyrn: Hmm... Just eat a bunch, sleep a bunch, and have lots of fun on the playground! I'm sure you'll get taller if you do that!
Charlotta: Playground? Do not treat me like a child! I am deadly serious about this!
Charlotta: More importantly! What you see before you is the result of my eating and sleeping far more than is healthy!
Vyrn: Haha! Now that you mention it, you have gotten a little wider!
Charlotta: ...!
Vyrn: I guess it's more like you got a little rounder, actually. Don'tcha think, (Captain)?
Charlotta: You too, (Captain)? Indeed... I have felt slightly heavier as of late...
Charlotta: But Melissabelle eats the same amount, and she loses weight instead of gaining it!
Melissabelle: Actually... I didn't want you to judge me, so I ate less than I usually do.
Charlotta: Surely you jest!
Vyrn: Well, Goldilocks here absorbs all her food into her hair. Regular folks are going to get fat in a hurry if they try copying her.
Melissabelle: Sorry I couldn't be any help, Charlotta...
Vyrn: Nothing you can do about it! Just gotta stay patient until we reach Estalucia!
Vyrn: And besides, you look better in sphere form anyway!
Charlotta: Is this the will of the world? The sacred heart of all things?
Charlotta: I wish not to be wide... but to be tall!
Charlotta's attempt at a makeover has ended in failure. Instead of the tallness she so desired, she receives unwanted wideness instead.
Will she one day find the grand and imposing stature she has always yearned for? Only time will tell.
