A knight from a lost kingdom, wandering ever onward in a pilgrimage of atonement. Naoise once served with great distinction in his king's military, only to see the kingdom ruined by the very monarch he swore to serve. Bereft of a path he once knew, Naoise began a pilgrimage to atone for the countless lives lost on his behalf. His encounter with you shines a ray of light into his life, prompting him to join your cause. Despite calling himself a gourmet, his unique ability to appreciate Katalina's cooking suggests that something might be wrong with his taste buds.

Trivia[edit]

Etymology[edit]

  • Naoise's name likely comes from the Naoise of Irish mythology, a handsome and talented warrior who was King Conchobar of Ulster's nephew. He fell in love with a woman, Deirdre, who his uncle wished to marry. They eloped together but he was eventually killed. The King took Deirdre as his wife and she later died from her grief.[2]
  • Ritter is German and means "knight".

Happy Birthday Cutscenes

1

Happy birthday.
I've been struggling to come up with something good to do for you this year, my dear (Captain).
If you'd like, I could teach you the proper way to brew tea.

2

Birthday salutations, (Captain). How was this last year for you?
I'm sure you'll save many others this year just as you saved me.
But along your path, there may come a time when you need to be saved yourself.
Hardship builds greatness, but there is no need to endure that hardship alone.
That's the lesson you taught me. And that's why I hope you'll let me help you in your time of need.

3

A very happy birthday to you, (Captain). I, too, am glad to see this day come round.
To see those that you care about spend their days in comfort and happiness—there is no greater joy.
Tribulation is all but guaranteed to continue; I'm sure we'll encounter our fair share of them by next year.
But I'll give my all to ensure that we will see your next birthday together.

4

The grand feast our cooks have whipped up to celebrate (Captain)'s birthday is most marvelous.
Hm? Scathacha, it is poor form to cram your mouth with food like that. It's okay to take it slow...
Oh, I recommend a fork for that... (Captain), here's one for you as well.
Hm? (Captain), remnants of sauce cling to your mouth. Please remain still while I attempt to wipe it off.
...! F-forgive me. I should not treat you in the same manner as I do Scathacha...
Oh? You actually prefer it this way? Very well, I shall act in this manner for the remainder of the day.
It is your birthday after all. Please let me know if you have any other requests.
And as I haven't said it formally yet... Happy birthday, (Captain).

Happy New Year Cutscenes

1

Happy New Year.
The reason I'm able to celebrate this new year is you, (Captain). It's all thanks to you.
When I was facing times of desperation, you saved me. And for that I thank you.

2

Scathacha asked me why people celebrate New Year's.
To a true dragon, which lives eons, the passing of a year might seem no different than the passing of a single day.
When I spoke with her about that, I had to remind myself she isn't exactly human.
I guess it's a good sign that I forgot about that. She just acts so normal now!
And with both her and you around, I want to ring in as many new years as I can.

3

Happy New Year. I'm beyond joyous that we'll enter the new year in good health and spirits.
You never know what can happen in life. I may be young, but I know this.
It's imperative that we endure times of trouble in order for us to truly treasure those peaceful moments.
Ahem, I seem to have gotten carried away. Preaching on the first day of the new year... My apologies, (Captain).

4

Happy New Year, (Captain).
The first sunrise of the year is more beautiful than any other.
To be able to gaze upon it with everyone warms my heart.
Yet I do not know how many New Year's sunrises I'll be able to gaze upon in the years to come.
If it were up to me, I'd be the first and the last to fall.
Nonetheless I shall do my utmost to ensure that every member of our crew is able to enjoy this magnificent view next year.
Worry not. I have no intention of endangering my life. I merely spoke of my resolve.

Valentine's Day Cutscenes

1

Captain, I'm grateful you've prepared these chocolates for me.
Not long ago I wouldn't have imagined I'd be getting chocolates from anyone.

2

For me? I, uh...
Oh, right! For Valentine's! It was very kind of you to think of me.
After I saw the destruction of Alster Island, I thought there would never again be days like today.
They say fortune and misfortune are intertwined. But so much has been lost...
That being said, if it has allowed us to be here like this, I'd say we've been quite fortunate.

3

A Valentine's Day gift... for me? I didn't think you'd remember, (Captain).
You truly are considerate to those around you. I hope to be able to repay the favor soon.
But first, I should properly care for myself before I'm able to care for others, of course.
I shan't forget to keep that in mind.

4

(Captain), you called?
A Valentine's gift... for me? Why, thank you!
I appreciate the sentiment each year. Thank you, (Captain).
Huh? You wonder how Valentine's was for me back in Irestill?
Come to think of it, I often received chocolate from the castle's servants and the citizenry during my patrols.
They usually offered Seruel a gift first, then gave me something too perhaps out of pity.
It worked out splendidly, allowing me to fulfill my role as a food taster.
(Captain)? Why do you sigh? My apologies if I said anything disrespectful...

White Day Cutscenes

1

I've prepared something sweet for you, Captain. I hope you enjoy it.
Heheh... I've also prepared some tea. Drink up before it gets cold, now!

2

(Captain), would you be so kind as to accept these sweets from me?
Heles showed me how to make them, but I found that making sweets is rather difficult.
Still I thought that handmade candy would be a great way of expressing my gratitude and respect.
And to refresh your palette, I've brewed some tea. Please let me know when you have a moment and I'll prepare it for you.

3

It is embarrassing, but I have realized that my talents don't lie in confectioneries...
As such, I've purchased these chocolates for you as a White Day present. I chose them myself.
If you'd like, please let me know when you decide to try them.
I'll brew my special tea for you—I know some of my talents lie there, at least.

4

(Captain), please accept my White Day gift.
I wavered between making the chocolates myself with some help from Heles... and buying the cute ones found at confectioneries.
I chose the latter this year. But I wrapped this up myself.
My fingers? You see, I tried to carve and aesthetically pleasing accessory using a knife...
Although I consider myself proficient in all manner of sharp objects...
Perhaps I am not best suited to tasks that require a delicate touch.
My apologies. I had hoped to bring you joy today, not worry.
I will try harder next time. May it bring you greater delight.

Trick or Treat Cutscenes

1

Happy Halloween.
Remember, everything in moderation.
You mustn't take in excess sugar by consuming too many sweets.
Forgive me if I'm being too pushy, but I have only your best interest in mind.

2

Now remember, (Captain). Everything in moderation. That includes tricks as well as treats.
Going overboard and eating too much isn't going to help anyone.
Please do be carefu—
Mmph!
You got me...
Sigh... Well I'm glad you're having fun at least, (Captain).

3

Sigh...
(Captain), I'm afraid I've found myself in a most unpleasant situation.
Scathacha is going overboard with her trickery. It seems someone taught her about Halloween.
I am reminded of when Heles and Seruel were mere babes.
They were mischief makers themselves, which made it, well, complicated to look after them.
Perhaps it seems that I am an easy target for such hijinks.
(Captain), don't you start too.

4

...
(Captain).
I understand you're taking great pleasure in the Halloween festivities with Scathacha.
It pleases me greatly to see you two enjoying yourselves so much.
However...
Won't you please reconsider the amount of destruction wrought in the wake of your tricks?
I consider myself a sturdy one, but I do not know how long I'll last if this is to occur every year...
If you'll allow me to protect us all until the ends of the skies...

Happy Holidays Cutscenes
# Link Text
1

Even in my hometown of Irestill, this time of year is known to be special.
So when I spend time with friends like this, it reminds me of the old days.
You know, Seruel always used to look forward to Heles's cake and my tea.

2

(Captain)? What's the matter? You should be spending this special time with someone close to you. Are you not going to be with Lyria and the others?
...!
You've come to be with me? You humble me on this day.
Back on Alster Island, it was common to pray for good fortune on this night.
But I will spend this night with you. No, it would be my pleasure to spend it with you.
Nothing makes me happier than hearing that you count me as someone close to you, (Captain).

3

I considered offering my assistance for tonight's supper, but I fear I may just be a hindrance.
Memories of my childhood at Emmain Macha came to mind—one winter night in particular.
I roamed the halls together with Heles and Seruel, eager to help prepare supper or decorate the castle halls.
Ultimately, we ended up knocking over a pot of boiling water, and my mother scolded the three of us.
I remember trembling in utter terror at my mother at the time, but looking back now I feel nothing but warm nostalgia—life is strange like that, isn't it?

4

Speaking of the holy night, as a child I would always leave candy by my pillow for Santa Claus.
In Alster Island, we use wheat and honey to bake a special treat for that very purpose.
If I remember right, it was the first thing that Heles ever baked. Ah, the memories.
I do not recall how many years ago it was, but there came a time when Heles decided to make some on her own. Even her mother was shooed out of the kitchen.
I fulfilled my duty as a food taster, praising her for the confection's wonderful taste. But doing so only brought me blame.
She wondered why I did not point out her accidental use of salt in lieu of sprinkles.
From all the perspiration that a knight undergoes during training, it is only natural to find salt savory.
That is why I enjoyed her confection so.
Hm?
You believe that my inimitable taste buds are the problem, not the perspiration?
(Captain), your words confound me...

Runaway Knight's Homecoming[edit]

While Naoise eats at a castle-town stall with Scathacha, Seruel, (Captain), and the others, Seruel comments that Naoise's pilgrimage has changed him for the better and orders him to continue traveling with (Captain). Naoise vows to do just that.



Naoise, a knight on a pilgrimage to try to make up for causing the destruction of his kingdom, runs into Prince Seruel during his travels.
Seruel convinces Naoise to finally visit his hometown, where he sees the reconstruction efforts underway.
Naoise: (Now that the turmoil is past and the rebuilding has begun, it's looking more and more like the castle town I knew and loved.)
Scathacha: Naoise! What are you sighing about? Can you hear me? What's going on over there?
Naoise: (It's so strange. I can hear the hustle and bustle of the town on the wind. It's just like I remember it.)
Scathacha:
Scathacha: Grrr!
Naoise: Huh? What's the matter?
Scathacha: Over there! Near that ramshackle tent, there are some men shouting next to a bonfire! What are they up to?
Naoise: Oh, they're just selling snacks. Grilled meat sandwiches. There have always been a lot of stalls like that in this town.
Scathacha: Hmm... Well, seeing as we're in town, we might as well try out the local cuisine. Show me to the stall.
Naoise: But that's really simple food so people with no time can eat on the go. It's hardly suitable for someone like yo—
Scathacha: Cease your wittering! My nose has smelt the food, and it has piqued my interest!
Scathacha grabs Naoise by the hand and drags him toward the food stall.
Naoise: Well, I guess we're here now... Excuse me, sir! One sandwich, and—
Scathacha: Two of these so-called sandwiches! One for me, and one for this man.
The two of them sit down on a bench and start eating a couple of the massive sandwiches: chunks of meat between thick round slices of bread.
Scathacha: Oho! This is most delicious! It's just salty enough to leave an impression.
Naoise: Yes, this is indeed very tasty. Every bite makes you want more. Munch, munch...
Naoise: But the meat's a little overpowering on its own. Lettuce or some other vegetable could really add a lot.
Scathacha: Sigh... There's just no pleasing some people.
Vyrn: Hey, Naoise! We were wondering where you'd gone, and here you are chowing down!
Naoise: My apologies, Vyrn. I didn't mean to leave without telling anyone. I was distracted by the sight of my city.
Seruel: So what are you two eating?
Scathacha: Huh? These sandwiches are apparently much loved by the people of this country. How can you call yourself a prince if you don't know about them?
Seruel: Well, you say they're much loved, but aren't they for people in a hur—
Scathacha: Hee-hee... Someone else told me that already. Hey, you, more sandwiches for these men!
Scathacha snatches Naoise's wallet from his pocket and thrusts a handful of money at the stall owner.
Vyrn: Sigh... So she drags you around and even takes your money. I feel sorry for you, bro.
Naoise: It's all right, Vyrn. Being chivalrous to women is part of a knight's duty. Thanks to my chivalry, Scathacha is in good spirits.
Seruel: Munch... Grrr! The meat keeps falling out. These sandwiches are most vexatious to eat.
Scathacha: Ha-ha! Clumsy fool! Isn't that food supposed to be for mortals like you?
Seruel frowns down at his hands, which are covered in meat and grease. Scathacha, whose own mouth is covered in sauce, giggles at him.
Naoise: Prince Seruel, there's a trick to eating this. If you take the paper and wrap it a bit more tightly, it leaks less.
Vyrn: Wow, Naoise, you've changed a lot. You wouldn't have gone near street food when we last visited the kingdom.
Naoise: I suppose you're right. I've learned a lot over the course of this journey.
Naoise: Food is not just a means of sustaining life. It also enables one to have fun, relax, and socialize.
Naoise: I have you and your crew to thank for teaching me to take it easy, (Captain).
Naoise: Before I met your crew, I could never have gotten Scathacha to smile in a place like this.
Vyrn: Ha-ha! But weren't you two at each other's throats about whether to even eat here?
Naoise: Heh-heh... Indeed we were.
Seruel: You have indeed changed, Naoise. You've grown as a person over the course of your pilgrimage.
Naoise: It really is thanks to (Captain) and the crew. At a time when all I cared about was repaying my kingdom, they showed me a world beyond this town and island.
Seruel: I see... It sounds like you've made some lifelong friends. Even your face seems different from that of the Naoise I knew.
Seruel: (Captain), it seems that my dear friend here owes you a monumental debt. Who knows what would have happened if he had never met you?
Seruel: Please continue helping and supporting him.
  1. I will.
  2. I can't.

Choose: I will.
Naoise: Thank you, (Captain).
Scathacha: Huh? What's got you so down in the dumps?
Vyrn: Yeah, you seem awfully sad for someone who just came back home. What's up?
Naoise: My apologies. After seeing my home again, I had a moment of doubt about continuing my adventure with you guys. Maybe I should stay...
Scathacha: You must consider this, Naoise. Are there not still citizens in this country who bear you ill will for your previous actions?
Naoise: What? Well... I suppose there must be.
Scathacha: Trouble follows you wherever you go. This country can hardly afford more strife. It will never recover if you stay here.
Naoise: No! Th-that's...
Scathacha: Well, I suppose you could always switch bodies like me if you really want to stay.
Naoise: ...!
Scathacha: Heh. It was just a joke. You mortals seem to enjoy making them, so I wanted to see what all the fuss was about.
Seruel: Hmm... Unfortunately you have a point. Naoise simply can't stay here.
Naoise: But Prince Seruel!
Seruel: Besides, didn't you swear an oath to Lyria to protect her and keep her smiling? Isn't that why you set out with this crew?
Naoise: ...
Seruel: Don't worry about us. I can assure you that there will always be a place for you here even if you're not involved in the restoration.
Naoise: Prince Seruel... I...
Seruel: Or do you perhaps intend to act as the sworn knight of both this girl and me?

Choose: I can't.
Naoise: I see... I suppose I did join your crew as a knight with duties to fulfill.
Naoise: I swore to forever protect Lady Lyria with my spear. To do otherwise would be to forfeit my honor as a knight, and I shall never forget such a vow.
Seruel: No, look into (Captain)'s eyes. Can you not see? I think (Captain) has another idea...
Naoise: What? (Captain)! Surely you don't mean to kick me out of the crew?
Vyrn: No... It's just that this country seems like it's in a bad way.
Vyrn: I actually think it'd be a relief to the citizens if you stayed here.
Naoise: You have a point, but isn't it a little cold of you to answer so bluntly?
Seruel: Indeed. The people could really use the famous Naoise, hero of Irestill, at the moment.
Seruel: But do you really intend to act as the sworn knight of both this girl and me?
Continue 1
Naoise: ...!
Seruel: In that case, I shall give you an order as a prince. You will fulfill your oath to Lyria and continue your pilgrimage.
Naoise: Yes, Your Highness!
Naoise raises his fist to his chest and bends his knee to swear his allegiance once more.
Vyrn: Are you sure you're cool with this? I mean, you came all the way back home only to leave with us again.
Naoise: I'm fine, Vyrn. I joined this crew as a lone knight after all.
Naoise: I wanted nothing more than to return home, protect my master, and serve my country. There is no greater honor for a knight.
Naoise: But now I must honor a new oath I've sworn to my master. I will protect Lyria to the end.
Thus Naoise receives a new mission for the sake of his recovering homeland.
Until his oath to Lyria is fulfilled, he'll continue traveling with the party.

The Knight and the Prince[edit]

Seruel and Naoise are reunited on the Grandcypher and reminisce about their past. When the crew gets a request from a nearby village to hunt monsters, Seruel volunteers to help.



Seruel not in crew

Seruel boards the airship one afternoon to see Naoise.
Naoise: Prince Seruel! What's happened? Is something wrong?
Seruel: Oh, nothing's wrong. I was just in the area and decided to drop by to see you.
Naoise: I see! Well, let's go inside. It wouldn't do to stand around talking out here.
Naoise shows Seruel into the ship.
Naoise and Seruel happily reminisce about their past.
Vyrn: Heh-heh! You guys are like best buddies, huh?
Seruel: Indeed. We trained together from an early age and shared plenty of highs and lows.
Seruel: Naoise is like a brother to me.
Naoise: Prince Seruel... I don't deserve such high praise.
Naoise: I owe both you and your sister Heles my gratitude for treating me like a member of your household.
Lyria: Hee-hee. You two can chat as long as you'd like.
The next day, the crew heads out to take care of a monster-hunting request from a nearby village.
Seruel not in crew

Naoise: Feel free to rest here on the airship while we're gone, Prince Seruel.
Seruel: Oh? But I'd actually prefer to repay you for the room and board by helping with the monsters...
Seruel: Would it be a problem if I accompanied you?
Vyrn: Of course not. We'd be happy to have you along if you want to help!
Lyria: Yeah! I'm sure you'll be a great help, Seruel!
Naoise: Heh-heh... Okay, everyone. Time to go!

The Knight and the Prince: Scene 2[edit]

Naoise and Seruel move in unison to cut down monster after monster, and they even compete to see who can defeat the most. This opportunity to defend each other reminds them how important it is to work together, and they laugh as they fight back-to-back.



Seruel and Naoise cut through the monsters with perfect coordination.
Naoise: You're still as skilled as ever, Prince Seruel!
Seruel: Ha-ha. Fighting shoulder to shoulder with you reminds me of the old days!
Seruel: How about it, Naoise? Shall we compete to see who can defeat the most monsters? It's been too long.
Naoise: Indeed it has! I still remember how passionately we used to compete.
A monster suddenly closes in from behind Seruel.
Naoise: Look out!
Monster:
Monster: Grargh...
As the monster falls, another appears just behind Naoise.
Seruel: Look out!
Monster:
Monster: Grargh...
Naoise and Seruel cover each other's blind spots in perfect synchronization.
Seruel: Ha-ha... You're every bit as calm and collected in battle as I remember, Naoise. And you move so smoothly.
Naoise: Heh-heh... We learned all about how important it is to work together as we grew up, didn't we?
Vyrn: Whoa! Look out, you two! You're surrounded!
Seruel: Got it. I'll take care of the rear, so you guys get the front.
Naoise: They'll never get through me, (Captain)!

The Knight and the Prince: Scene 3[edit]

After the crew defeats the monsters and returns to the Grandcypher, Naoise asks Seruel if he can help with the preparations. He returns a little later, pulling a cart laden with freshly made tea, which the crew then enjoys together.



After finishing off the monsters, the crew returns to the airship.
Naoise: Wonderfully done, Prince Seruel.
Seruel: Ha-ha. Well, we could have handled monsters like them on our own, right, Naoise?
Naoise: By the way, Your Highness, is there anything I can do to help with the preparations?
Seruel smiles at his words.
Seruel: Of course. I'd be happy to have your aid.
Vyrn: Huh? Preparations for what?
Seruel: Heh... You'll find out soon enough.
Naoise reappears after a while, pulling a cart behind him.
Naoise: All right, let's have some tea.
Lyria: Oh! It smells so good!
Vyrn: So this is what you meant by preparations!
Seruel: Indeed. Naoise makes the most exquisite tea.
Naoise: You flatter me. But I believe that the tea that Princess Heles makes is far superior.
Naoise: Still, Prince Seruel has always appreciated my tea. We used to drink it together quite a lot.
Lyria: Hee-hee... I can totally picture that!
Vyrn: All right, we'll help ourselves to some of that awesome tea as well!
The crew relaxes over some of Naoise's delectable tea.

A Dangerous Game[edit]

When a casino liner shows up that's run by people unknown, Naoise and Seruel decide to check it out, but Scathacha's interest is piqued too, and she ends up tagging along. While enjoying herself at the casino, she gets into trouble with another customer, and Naoise has to step in.



As a result of monster attacks, Irestill Kingdom, which once governed Alster Island, is destroyed, and the island falls into chaos.
But order is restored thanks to the efforts of the former royal family as well as (Captain) and company, and the island begins to recover.
Not long after that, a casino liner shows up at the island with a request to do business there.
Seruel: Hmm... A casino liner? I suppose that could offer a bit of recreation to the people.
Heles: Indeed. But I have my doubts about the people running it...
Naoise: A casino liner operated by people we know nothing about, huh?
Seruel: It sounds like we should pay them a little visit before agreeing to anything.
Heles: I agree... I'll leave that to you, Seruel. Naoise, I can count on you to keep my little brother safe, right?
Naoise: Yes, Your Highness! It would be no problem.
Seruel: Heles...
Heles: Hee-hee... I know you can take care of yourself just fine, but one can never be too careful.
Thus Seruel and his bodyguard Naoise decide to go check out the casino liner, but someone else wants to join the fun.
???: I'll be going as well.
Naoise: Scathacha? But why?
Scathacha: I'm interested in this casino you speak of. Lead the way.
Naoise: Hey, we're not just going for fun. Seruel plans to inspect the place and—
Scathacha: Oh, don't be like that! You know I can't go anywhere by myself in this form. Or would you rather I go as a dragon?
Naoise: Ugh... I really hate it when your interest rears its ugly head.
Heles: Hee-hee... Oh, it'll be fine. Just bring her with you.
Seruel: Sigh... So you're on her side then.
Heles: Well, to secure the peace of Alster Island, it's necessary to use Scathacha's strength to pacify the monsters.
Heles: But an unfortunate consequence of that is that she's stuck here on our island.
Seruel: Great... So I guess I have to babysit you for the occasional excursion then.
Scathacha: Hee-hee... You've got that right. Now let's get going already!
Naoise: Hold it, Scathacha! Don't run off on your own! See you soon, Heles!
Heles: I'll be looking forward to it, Naoise. You be a good boy too, Seruel.
Seruel: Sheesh... Exactly how young a child do I look like to you?
Thus Seruel, Naoise, and Scathacha head for the casino liner anchored on the island.
Naoise: Listen up, Scathacha. I don't want you wandering off on your own. You stay next to me and Seruel.
Scathacha: Huh? What's that over there?
Seruel: Sigh... Looks like she wasn't listening.
Naoise: I just knew this would happen. Hey! Wait up, Scathacha!
Seruel: Hmm... Well, this is certainly no Jewel Resort.
Seruel: But at least they've set up mirrors inside so the place doesn't look as cramped as it actually is.
Scathacha: Grrr... I'm not even tall enough to see the action in this form. Help me out here, Naoise.
Naoise: Oh, so the table is too high, huh? Do you want me to hold your cards for you?
Scathacha: I won't be able to see my hand that way. You'll have to hold me up.
Naoise: Sigh... Fine. I suppose I can hold you for one game.
Seruel: Oho... You know, you look like her dad or something when you do that.
Naoise: Ugh...
Seruel: Ha-ha. You two look adorable together.
Naoise: Well, I'm not sure if that's exactly knightly either.
Scathacha drags Naoise and Seruel around the casino liner, enjoying it immensely.
Scathacha: Look, Naoise! All the pictures match. What do you think will happen?
Naoise: Um... Well...
Scathacha: More of these coins, huh? Can't they think of anything more entertaining?
Rough Customer: Tch... You little brat! Are you trying to annoy me or what?
Scathacha: Huh? What's your problem?
Rough Customer: You are, shrimp! And I was already pissed before you showed up!
Seruel: Well, looks like someone managed to fritter away all their money.
Seruel: How pathetic... Hey, if you don't have anything better to do than take shots at other people, why don't you head on home?
Rough Customer: Excuse me? If you want a fight, you've got it!
Naoise: Hold it! You keep your hands off of them. If you have something to say, say it to me. But first try to calm down a bit and—
Rough Customer: Shut your mouth! You're the ones who were insulting me! How about I teach all of you a lesson?
Scathacha: ...
Naoise: Scathacha!
Naoise: (Uh-oh! We really don't want her going on a dragon rampage in here.)
Rough Customer: Eat this!
Naoise: ...!
Seruel: Naoise!
Naoise: ...
If you'd rather talk with your fists, I can oblige you on that as well.
Rough Customer: Oh, look at big bad Mr. Suave standing up for his little girl. Let's see how suave you are after I'm done with you!

A Dangerous Game: Scene 2[edit]

Seruel and Naoise resolve not to allow gambling on Alster Island due to the trouble it causes, so Scathacha decides to enjoy the casino liner while she still can. Naoise leaves Seruel's side to look after her, but Seruel ends up getting ambushed by an assassin, and Naoise dashes back in response to the commotion.



Naoise pacifies the customer who picked a fight and hands him over to the casino liner security.
Seruel: Why'd you have to go and cause such a scene?
Scathacha: Are you insinuating that that was somehow my fault? I don't think so.
Naoise: How about we go find some place quiet to take a break? Everyone's staring at us.
Seruel: Sounds like a plan.
The three sit down at a table in the casino liner's bar.
Scathacha: What in the world was that guy's problem anyway?
Scathacha: Isn't this place supposed to be fun? How can you mortals relax and enjoy yourselves with troublemakers like him around?
Seruel: Well, fellows as excitable as him don't really show up that often...
Seruel: But there is indeed something about gambling that drives people to do strange things.
Seruel: I must say that gambling therefore doesn't seem like the most suitable recreation for our people.
Naoise: I agree. Let's make sure to mention that to Heles as well.
Scathacha: If that's how you two feel, I'd like to hang out here a little while longer.
Naoise: But why?
Scathacha: Well, it sounds like there won't be another casino liner on Alster Island for a while, so I need to take advantage of this opportunity.
Naoise: Ugh!
Seruel: I think I'll rest here for a while. See to Scathacha, Naoise.
Naoise: Yes, sir! I hope you'll forgive me for temporarily leaving my post at your side.
Seruel: Ha-ha. I suspect that it'd be more difficult to convince a dragon to consider the feelings of us mortals. Good luck with her.
Thus Seruel decides to relax at the bar, leaving his two companions to their own devices.
Female Customer: Hey! Are you all alone, big guy? Why don't you come play with us for a while?
Seruel: I'd love to, but I'm unfortunately waiting for someone.
Female Customer: Oh, really? Now that is a shame.
Seruel is distracted by the woman and doesn't notice a man sneaking up on him.
Seruel: ...!
Female Customer: Aahh!
Naoise: That scream... Did that come from the bar? Seruel!
Naoise: Seruel! Is everything all—Oh no! You're hurt!
Seruel: Ugh... I wasn't paying attention... To think they'd attack in such a crowded place...
Scathacha: The wound doesn't look very deep. Where'd the attacker go?
Seruel: He went that way... Naoise, get him.
Naoise: Yes, sir! He won't get far! Scathacha, you look after Seruel. I'll get that criminal!
Naoise: You there! Halt in the name of the kingdom of Alster! You're under arrest!

A Dangerous Game: Scene 3[edit]

It turns out that the mafia, which is still looking for a way to exploit Alster Island's vulnerabilities and profit from them, sent the assassin to the casino liner. Naoise wonders whether he has the power to protect his country when he couldn't even protect Seruel from injury.



Naoise apprehends the criminal. Afterwards he returns with Seruel, whose wound has been treated, to Alster's Great Court.
Naoise: I beg your forgiveness, Heles. I failed to protect Seruel.
Heles: No, it's not your fault. I should have thought a bit harder about why a casino liner would suddenly visit our island.
Heles: It's quite possible that the mafia is still looking for a way to turn a profit on Alster Island.
Seruel: Indeed... Thanks to Scathacha's strength, we were able to stop the monsters and prevent the mafia from forcing its way in after all.
Naoise: So you mean the mafia is back and looking for an alternative way to make money here?
Heles: Of course. It was foolish of us to assume they'd give up so easily.
Scathacha: Then they must have targeted Seruel to once again stir up unrest among the people.
Scathacha: I assume they hoped to get some revenge on the former royal family while they were at it.
Naoise: Revenge...
Heles: To not only restore our island but also achieve progress, the key will be to minimize the damage they do as much as possible.
Seruel: Indeed. It seems that this one's on us for allowing ourselves to forget just how cunning they are.
Naoise: ...
Naoise: (I'm a knight. Nothing more and nothing less.)
Naoise: (How am I supposed to contribute to the restoration and future prosperity of our country?)
Naoise: (I mean, I couldn't even protect Seruel.)
Alster Island is still on the road to recovery and lacks the power to repel hostile forces.
As Naoise stares at his own hands, he struggles to find a way to aid his country.

Knightly Duties[edit]

Still not completely recovered, Alster Island is a tempting target for criminal organizations hoping to make a quick buck. Naoise decides that the best way he can help is to scare the mafia into never targeting the island again. He heads to the mafia hideout alone, ready to stain his hands as much as necessary.



Though once brought to the brink of collapse, Alster Island has started down a path toward restoration and even further development.
But criminal organizations are always watching for their chance to gain a foothold on the island and turn a profit.
Naoise: (As a knight of Alster Island, what can I possibly do for my homeland?)
Naoise has been plagued with worry ever since the mafia assassin made an attempt on Seruel's life.
Naoise: (I somehow managed to find information on the casino liner that came here, starting with its owner...)
Naoise: (And it seems that mafia members are responsible just as Heles and Seruel suspected.)
Naoise: (Those two were absolutely right. The mafia is looking for a way to exploit Alster Island.)
Naoise: (And that's simply beyond forgiveness!)
Naoise: (If I don't do something, the mafia will definitely try to extend its reach to Alster Island again.)
Naoise: (And other criminal organizations will probably target us as well. Alster has recovered, but it was only recently changed from a monarchy to a democracy after all.)
Naoise: (There are just too many easy ways for hostile forces to take advantage of us.)
Naoise: (And if I want to stop them, it means I have to...)
Naoise: ...
Naoise: Please forgive my foolishness, my ancestors, but I can think of only one thing to do.
Guard: ...
Guard: ...!
Naoise: ...
Naoise: Time to get this over with.
Underling: Wha? Hey, what are you doin'? How'd you get in here?
Naoise: I am Naoise, knight of Alster! I've come to show you the military might of our island.
Underling: Damn... So much for our guard outside. Hey! We got trouble! Get over here, boys!
Naoise: Go ahead and call all your rats. The more of your kind I exterminate, the greater the fear I'll leave behind.
Naoise: To protect my homeland, I'll stain my hands with as much blood as I have to!

Knightly Duties: Scene 2[edit]

Naoise cuts down one mafia thug after another, but the mafia soon gets more organized, and the fight reaches a stalemate. Naoise gets pinned down by concentrated fire, but Heles, Seruel, and Scathacha show up to save him. Though critical of Naoise's brashness, they decide to wipe out the mafia once and for all.



Minion: Argh!
Underling: No way!
Naoise: Don't tell me you're done already!
Underling: Damn! Gunners! Anyone who can shoot, fall in already!
In response to the order, mafia gunners surround Naoise at a distance and begin to fire off round after round.
Naoise: Ugh! But it'll take more than a few bullets to stop me!
Naoise: ...!
Naoise blocks the barrage of bullets with his shield, but he can't advance, and the situation seems to have reached a stalemate.
Naoise: Geh! Looks like I might just have to charge in!
But someone beats Naoise to the punch.
Ruffian: What the?
Magical energy floods into the room, toppling the mafia members like so many dominoes.
Naoise: Wha?
Scathacha: Sigh... Such a pain.
Scathacha: I figured you were up to something stupid, but even I expected better from you than this.
Naoise: Scathacha? What are you doing here?
Ruffian: You little!
Seruel: You know, I hate to admit it, but I'm inclined to agree with Scathacha this time.
Heles: How many times did we tell you not to head off and do anything stupid, Naoise?
Naoise: Seruel? Heles?
Seruel: Sigh... Even I'm most infuriated by what I see here.
Ruffian: Hey! Shut your traps already! We're the ones who should be pissed, and we're gonna leave no one standing!
Scathacha: Leave no one standing, huh? Not a bad idea.
Scathacha: I have just the spell for this. You three cover me.
Heles: With pleasure. Hey, Naoise! Don't just stand there with your jaw hanging open!
Naoise: Huh?
Naoise: Oh, yes, Your Highness! I'm with you!
Ruffian: Hey! It's on now, boys! Get 'em!

Knightly Duties: Scene 3[edit]

With the mafia thugs defeated, Seruel and Heles chastise Naoise for his recklessness, but Naoise seems perfectly willing to sacrifice himself for his country. Scathacha reminds the knight that the royal siblings were worried about him, which surprises him and shows him how thoughtless his actions were.



Ruffian: Damn it!
Scathacha: ...!
Heles: Seruel! Naoise! Scathacha's spell incoming! Brace yourselves!
Naoise: ...!
Scathacha: Fall before the awesome might of Deirdre! Hyaaah!
Scathacha: Phew. Feels good to cut loose once in a while.
Naoise: ...
Scathacha! You went way too far! This is practically a wasteland now, and—
Scathacha: ...
Seruel: Naoise. Are you sure you have room to talk?
Heles: Seruel's right. I understand that you hoped to protect Alster Island by demonstrating our military might...
Heles: It even makes sense in a way. The fear of your retaliation might very well stop criminal organizations from targeting us.
Heles: As a matter of fact, given how concerned they are with profit and loss, they'll probably give up on our island after what happened here.
Seruel: But that doesn't excuse you for trying to do this alone. And without even telling us!
Naoise: You would have only tried to stop me if I had said anything.
Naoise: I realize that there were problems with what I did, but I acted based on careful consideration since the night on that casino liner.
Naoise: I had few options, so I opted for an action with a high chance of success.
Naoise: Perhaps it was foolish of me, but Alster Island couldn't afford for me to waste time.
Seruel: Perhaps, but that in no way excuses you from—
Scathacha: Hold it, Seruel.
Seruel: But...
Scathacha: Listen carefully. First of all, Naoise, you are indeed a brainless twit.
Naoise: Wha?
Scathacha: And it's a waste of time to try to reason with a twit. So let me simplify things for you.
Scathacha: We were worried about you, so stop being dumb. Even you can understand a sentiment like that, right?
Naoise: You were worried? About me?
Naoise: Well, I guess I didn't really think about that... Or maybe what I should be saying is...
Naoise: Um... I'm really sorry for worrying you.
Seruel: Sigh... How could you possibly think that we wouldn't worry about you when you take off like that?
Heles: That's right! When I heard that you'd stormed a mafia stronghold on your own, my blood ran cold!
Scathacha: Yeah, let him have it. And you'll have no merciful words from me, Naoise.
Seruel: How could you think so little of your own life? Not even I can forgive you this time.
Heles: You're in for quite a lecture from the both of us. I assume you have no objections, right, Naoise?
Naoise: N-no, Your Highness!
Naoise: Ahem... But before we get to that...
Naoise: Allow me to thank all three of you for coming to rescue me.
Naoise is a knight among knights who doesn't hesitate to risk his life for his country.
But Seruel, Heles, and Scathacha aren't the only ones who worry about him.
Seruel and Heles lecture the selfless knight mercilessly, trying to convince him to value his own life as much as he values those of others.
