To Fix What's Broken
Rackam is in high spirits after obtaining a precious part. However, a boy that suddenly appeared steals it from him. Rackam tries to chase after the boy into the forest, but monsters were waiting for him.
Lyria: Aren’t you glad, Rackam?! You were looking for this part for a long time, right?
Katalina: I didn’t think you would find such a rare part in the countryside like this.
Rackam: Lucky finds and bargains are always found in remote places like this. Now Grandcypher will be even more...
Rackam: Ow... What was that kid?He didn’t even apologize...
Vyrn: Come on. You okay? That’s what you get for being so careless.
Rackam: Shut up! Geez... Wait... Hm...?
Rackam: ...! Where’s the part?!
Lyria: I think that boy picked up something back there...
Rackam: That damn brat! Come back here!
Rackam: Gah! Damn it! He ran into the forest!
Vyrn: The forest... Then...
Katalina: Yeah... I have a bad feeling about this...
Katalina: Here it comes! Monsters!
Rackam: Damn! I don’t have time to deal with you!
Rackam: Let’s beat them down real fast! (Captain)!
To Fix What's Broken: Scene 2
(Captain) and company go after the boy. But monsters stand in their way.
Katalina: Where did that child go?
Lyria: Over there!
Rackam: Damn it! Get back here!
Rackam: Huff... Huff... That kid is quick!
Lyria: The aura of the monsters are getting stronger... I hope he’s okay...
Vyrn: I knew it! Let’s go help him!
To Fix What's Broken: Scene 3
After saving the boy from the monsters, Rackam retrieves the part from the boy, but then he is attacked by monsters again.
Rackam: You stupid brat! I finally caught you! Give me that part back!
Child: Ahh! Give it back! You beard-faced freak!
Child: That’s mine! If I have that, it might come back to life!
Rackam: Huh? Come back to life? What are you talking about?
Rackam: ...! I see... This is...
Katalina: What’s wrong, Rackam? This place is...
Lyria: More monsters! They’re mad because we defeated their friends...
Rackam: Tch... We’ll hear you out later! Kid! Just stand back!
Rackam: This place isn’t somewhere monsters can mess around with... Let’s beat them back, (Captain)!
To Fix What's Broken: Scene 4
This place has the remains of what was once a giant ship. The boy tried to revive the ship, but Rackam gave him the cold, hard truth and advised him of what he must do from now on.
Katalina: The presence of the monsters seems to be gone... Those last ones must have been the leaders.
Vyrn: Hey, Rackam. What’s so special about this place?
Rackam: Look around you. Does this look familiar?
Lyria: Huh? What’s going on...?
Katalina: It’s covered in ivy... This appears to be the bilge of a ship.
Vyrn: And the log over there is the mast? This must have been a big ship.
Rackam: The stuff scattered around here are all remains of airships.
Rackam: It was so big, I didn’t realize it. This must have been a grand ship.
Child: Of course it is! This ship belonged to my dad! I rode this ship for as long as I could remember!
Child: But it crashed years ago, and they told us it won’t fly anymore... It was taken apart with nothing but its bones left.
Child: Damn... It flew the skies for so long. It’s too cruel to throw it away just because it fell!
Child: That’s why... I...! I wanted to gather the parts and...
Lyria: You wanted to revive the ship...
Vyrn: Say, Rackam. Can’t you fix it...?
Rackam: That’s impossible. That ship is already dead. It’s not like Grandcypher.
Rackam: It’s not rare to gather parts to fix up a broken ship.
Rackam: It’s better than making the parts from scratch. If that were the case, Phantagrande would be full of shipwrecks.
Rackam: That’s how parts get passed on and find new life in the next ship.
Katalina: That sounds like a logical way to go about it. Still, that may sound too cruel to a child's ears...
Rackam: Hey kid. Hold out your hand.
Rackam: Here. You can have the part.
Rackam: This ship won’t ever be revived, but as long as you remember it, it will always live in your heart.
Rackam: When you get your own ship someday, put that part into it.
Child: ...! T-Thank you... But I don’t have any money...
Rackam: You owe me one. Pay me back when you become a skyfarer.
Child: ...! I’ll definitely become a skyfarer someday!
Child: And I’ll fly with it... I’m sure of it! Thank you, mister!
Vyrn: But wasn’t it a really rare part? Are you sure about this?
Rackam: It’s fine. We might come across an even better part eventually.
Lyria: Let’s go and find it! I’ll help, of course! Um... I can cheer you on!
Katalina: It might not be easy to find. But that makes it all the worth doing.
Rackam: Yeah. The world is a big place. My journey with Grandcypher is far from over.
(Captain) and company placed their dreams and futures into the Airship Grandcypher and flew to the skies.
Skyfarer Rackam takes the helm flies to his destiny, to a world he still does not know.
They must head to the end of the sky, Estalucia. The airship Grandcypher’s journey continues...
The party was busy arranging a surprise party for Lyria. The biggest surprise of all was that she didn’t even know it was her birthday. Vyrn stayed behind on the ship while Katalina and the others left early in the morning to find a nice present. Not seeing her made Lyria more an a bit uneasy. Once Katalina had returned, they all shared a nice dinner together. Lyria grinned from ear to ear. Friendship really was the best seasoning.
Rackam: Lyria’s still out like a light...
Vyrn: Sigh... well. It’s still pretty early. I don’t think she’s gonna be up for a while.
Rackam: Alrighty, then... Vyrn, (Captain). Hold down the fort while we’re out.
Io: What fort... just keep an eye on Lyria, ‘kay?
Vyrn: Leave it to us! Right, (Captain)!
Katalina: Hey... uh, (Captain)? Are you sure you want to do this? I mean, I could stay...
Io: Oh, jeez! What the heck does that mean?! This was your idea in the first place!
Katalina: Yeah... it is quite a bit...
The sun rose on the Grandcypher.
Rackam, Io, and Katalina had gone out, leaving Vyrn and (Captain) behind.
Io: Hey! How about we get going before Lyria wakes up!
Katalina: I-I’m just saying... we don’t HAVE to give her a surprise party. Maybe we could?
Rackam: Aw, rubbish. A nice surprise is half of the fun!
Rackam: And it’s not like we actually know if her birthday’s today, right?
Katalina: Yeah... I can’t say I know much about where she came from.
Katalina: It’s just... it’s so sad...
Katalina: Today’s the day Lyria and I met.
Katalina: She was so different back then... although she might not remember.
Io: But that makes it perfect! And since she doesn’t have a birthday, we can make today her special day!
Rackam: Yeah! So let’s get moving and get the girl a present.
Katalina: But... it’s like we’re tricking her. I don’t think we need to do all this...
Katalina: And we’re together every day... I think she’ll be worried if I’m not here...
Rackam: Jeez... sometimes you gotta leave the nest, Katalina.
Katalina: Nest?! What nest?! I have no idea what you?
Katalina: Wait a minute! Are you saying I look old enough to be Lyria’s mom?!
Io: Aaaanyway! It’ll be fine! Vyrn can stay back on the ship! Right, (Captain)?
Vyrn: Exactly! Me and (Captain)’ll be here to keep an eye on things!
Io: Hey! So we won’t have to worry even if the Empire comes sniffing around...
Io: And besides... you’ve spent the most time with her, right?
Io: How the heck are we supposed to pick out a present without you?
Katalina: Well... yeah, you do have a point...
Rackam: Then there we go! We’re counting on you, (Captain)!
Rackam: We’ll be back as soon as we can manage it. Just make sure to keep everything hush-hush!
Lyria: Yawn... ahh. Good morning, Vyrn. Good morning, (Captain).
Lyria: ... hm? Is it just me, or is it a bit quiet?
Choose: Late sleepers, eh?
- Late sleepers, eh?
- You just missed them...
Lyria: Oh... then I’ll just go and wake up Katalina!
Vyrn: Whoa! W-wait! Don’t do that! They just went out for a bit...
Lyria: Wha...Choose: You just missed them...
Vyrn: Wha?! Why the hell did you just blurt it out?!
Lyria: Did everybody go out?
Lyria: Hm? But we already did the shopping yesterday...
Vyrn: No, uh... y’see... they had some stuff... business stuff they needed to do. Yeah, that sounds about right!
Lyria: Wait... really?Continue 1
Vyrn: Anyway! They’ll be back in a jiff! You don’t need to look all worried!
Lyria: Erm... are you going out too, (Captain)?
Choose: Sure am.
- Sure am.
- No way.
Lyria: ... oh.
Vyrn: Hey! What the hell’re you talking about?! We’re supposed to stay here, dummy!
Vyrn: It’s fine, Lyria! (Captain)’s not going anywhere! Right?! I said RIGHT, (Captain)?!Choose: No way.
Vyrn: Yeah! Me and (Captain) here decided to stay back!Continue 2
Lyria: That’s a relief... I don’t know what I’d do if you guys weren’t here...
Lyria: Sigh... so everyone else is gone. I hope they come back soon...
Io: Ah! Look, look! That would be pretty good, don’t you think?
Rackam: Hey! Quit running around! Don’t expect us to come find you if you get lost!
Io: No one asked you! And it’s not like I’m going to get lost, anyway!
Io: Hey, Katalina! You think Lyria would like this?
Katalina: ... what? Oh... yeah. Maybe...
Rackam: Sigh... dagnabbit. Katalina here’s too worried about Lyria to even pay attention...
Io: Hey! Snap out of it, Katalina!
Io: You know how strong (Captain) is, don’t you? She’ll be fiiine!
Io: And we’re not that far from the Grandcypher in the first place...
Katalina: Ah... yeah. You’re right. They’re okay... definitely.
Io: Sigh... she’s sick, I swear. You can’t even function if Lyria’s not around!
Io: Fine, then. We’ll find a present ourselves!
Io: Oh! Look! How about that shop? Let’s take a look! Right, Lyr?
Rackam: For the love of... hey, pot? I’d like you to meet kettle...
Rackam: Let’s just find a present and get back to the Grandcypher...
Rackam: I got the weirdest feeling that something’s gone wrong!
Rackam: Whew... how’d we end up getting so much stuff...
Io: Hrm... I think she’ll like it. But maybe we should’ve picked something else...
Vyrn: Oh! Look who the cat dragged in!
Katalina: Lyria! Sorry for being out all day... did you behave yourself?
Lyria: ... snff.
Lyria: Hic... snff... K-Katalina...
Katalina: Lyria?! What did you do?!
Vyrn: I, uh... I don’t know...
Vyrn: She hadn’t seen you since morning. Looks like she went and worked herself into a funk...
Lyria: Hic... a-a-and... snff... you d-didn’t e-even t-tell me... waaah...
Lyria: I-I was... snff... worried sick! I k-kept thinking, snff... wh-what if I n-never saw you again!
Katalina: I understand... I’m sorry, Lyria. I should’ve known better...
Lyria: Mmhmm... snff... b-but you came b-back...
Katalina: I did... and I’m not going anywhere ever again. So don’t you worry... you’re safe.
Katalina reached out to stroke the sobbing girl’s hair.
Rackam: Well, now... this isn’t exactly the kind of surprise I had in mind...
Io: Yeah... I kind of feel bad now...
The party sat Lyria down to explain exactly what they’d been planning.
Io: And you know what? We just couldn’t pick one out...
Io: Like, we weren’t sure what Lyria would like best...
Rackam: I dunno if I’d give a young lady food as a birthday present... seems kinda bland...
In the end, they brought back a veritable mountain of sweets and snacks.
Lyria: I’m so happy! Wow... these all look so good!
Rackam: Haha... guess a bland gift’s not so bad if it’s tasty.
At Lyria’s request, they spread the food out and began to eat.
Lyria: Nom... hehe.
Io: Hey, Lyria! Did’ja try this one yet?
Rackam: Hey, dagnabbit! I was gonna eat that...
Io: What, you’re going to eat all of them yourself? Oh! Lyria! What about this one? It’s absolutely delish!
Vyrn: Oh, damn! We gotta get another one of these apple tarts! Am I right or am I right?!
Katalina: Hehe. Yeah. The bakery’s a little ways away from town. It shouldn’t take too long to get there from here.
Lyria: Heehee... hey, Katalina.
Katalina: Hmm? What?
Lyria: Hehe. It’s just... food always taste so much better when I eat it with you guys.
Katalina: You’re right... definitely. Hehe. There’s nothing better than having everyone together.
They say in a happy circle under a night sky blazing with stars.
