Happy birthday!
It's your day, Cap'n! So we gotta go all out!

2

Heya Captain! Happy birthday!
So how long has it been since we started on this adventure?
Haha. It's all flown by so fast, I feel like it could've been ages!
I promise that the Grandcypher and I will get you to where you want to go.
Thanks for choosing me to be your helmsman.
All right, then! It's your birthday, so let's party!

3

Sheesh, can't believe it's your birthday again, (Captain). Really gets me emotional.
Maybe it's because I see you like a father sees their child?
Nah, that's more like Eugen!
Then like a brother sees his sibling?
You know, you may be onto somethin' with this brother talk. Haha, thanks.
All right! Let's gather the rest of the crew and celebrate your birthday like never before!

4

Has it really been a whole year already? Time sure does fly. Happy birthday, (Captain)! Hope you're ready to blow the doors off this baby! But first... I gotta give you a little advice, like the dashing older brother figure that I am. Ahem. You're a straight shooter, (Captain), and you give everything you do a thousand percent. Which is exactly why I worry about you... I worry you'll push yourself too hard. And besides... I feel useless if you don't lean on me at least a little. Eheh. We've still got a long road ahead of us. And you're never alone. Make sure you remember that!

Heya, Captain! Happy New Year!
They say each part of the sky has it own way of celebrating the new year! How do you celebrate back home?

2

Happy New Year to ya, (Captain)! Here's to another good year.
Man, I get excited just thinkin' about where the Grandcypher is goin' to take us this year.
No matter how old I get, nothin' beats the excitement of adventure.
Haha. People might laugh at me for it, but that's all I can think about.
Anyways, leave the piloting to me! I'll get ya to where ya wanna go!

3

Hey, (Captain). I was thinkin' about our course for the new year.
Not so easy flyin' the ship around or gettin' an accurate reading of the climate.
I'm workin' too hard on New Year's Day? Heh-heh. Well somebody has to. The Grandcypher doesn't get to take a holiday.
And that means I don't get to take one either.
Oh? Getting a compliment from (Captain), the captain of our crew, on New Year's Day. Must be a good omen!
I swear I'll get you to Estalucia. You're in good hands!

4

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Hold out your hand.
There ya go. That's a little pocket money for ya.
Hey, hey, hey! What're you lookin' so surprised for?
Whaddya mean, am I feelin' okay? Geez... Is it that outta character for me to spoil you a bit?
Well... Y'know... Maybe I've grown into the big brother role a bit.
I'm not gonna be the same ol' Rackam this year. Haha, just you watch!

Happy... Valentine's?
Huh? You're givin' me chocolate too? Haha, you're gonna make me blush!

2

Hey! I was waitin' for ya to come! Haha, just kidding.
So you really did get something for me! Thanks for that, Captain!
I guess when we say things all serious-like, it makes me kinda nervous.
Just try and forget that serious stuff, okay?
Haha. Anyway, just you wait! I'm gonna get you something great for White Day!

3

What's this, (Captain)? Heh-heh. Thanks.
But this is a lotta chocolate for one person to handle. What got into you?
Huh? Because I've been so good to you...
That's my line. (Captain), thanks to you—
Ah, never mind... Almost said somethin' kinda embarrassing.
Thanks for the gift. I'll think of you when I eat them.

4

Whoooa, thanks a million, (Captain)! Seriously, you don't know how much I appreciate this.
I mean, you've never forgotten a year. How d'you do it?
I've really started to look forward to these delicious chocolates of yours every year around this time.
Maybe I've grown a few sweet teeth, like Eugen.
It's all your fault, you know.
Heh heh. Which is this glutton's roundabout way of sayin' I'm lookin' forward to next year's goodies too, Captain.

Today's that, uh... that White Day thing, or whatever...
And I know how you're always looking out for me. So here's a token of my gratitude. Here, take it.

2

Heya, Cap! Sorry to bother you when you're busy, but could we talk for a sec?
Check it out. I got this present for ya. For White Day!
I know you're always out there bustin' your butt for us, so I guess I wanted to say thanks.
Well, not just thanks. But I can't say any more than that, all right?
You shouldn't pry into the mind of an adult, you know.
I better keep an eye on you to make sure you don't drive people crazy!

3

Here, (Captain). Got you somethin' to say thanks for Valentine's Day.
Whoa... All that stuff you're holding, is that all from White Day?
Haha. Guess that's just how we treat our captain on this ship.
But, ya know, mine's definitely the best...
Then again, how could anyone else compete! Haha!

4

Hey, (Captain). You know today's White Day, right?
So, well... How 'bout you take this present off my hands?
Nah, don't thank me. I'm the one who should be thankin' you.
You're the reason I get to take this voyage with the best crew I could ever hope for.
Hey, would I kid you? I'm dead serious about this.
And I took my choice of present seriously too.
I hope you like it, (Captain).
Pfft. Heh heh... Did I lay it on too thick?

Trick or treat!
Oh, come on! Grown-ups can get in on the fun too!

2

Geez, folks on the ship don't show any mercy when it comes to playing tricks.
And look at this! Cleaning this up is going to take forever!
Not that there's anything wrong with letting off steam every once in a while.
I can prank with the best of 'em myself!
Haha! Especially when it comes to avenging myself against the guys who messed up my Grandcypher! Let's roll, (Captain)!

3

Oy, oy! I'm the target this year?
Yer not gonna take my candy that easily! I've been practicing my escape techni—
(Captain)! How'd you get behind me so quick? No point runnin' away now.
But you didn't have to get so serious, ya know? Look, I'll give you some of my candy, so don't play any mean pranks on me.
Here...
H-hey! Trick me while I hand you candy? I thought we had a deal!
Heh-heh. I guess it was hopeless goin' up against an old pro like you, (Captain).

4

Hey, (Captain)!
Whaddya mean, "what"?
The jig is up, Captain. No use playing innocent—Vyrn ratted you out.
Where do you get off drawing pumpkins all over my beloved Grandcypher?
My baby's lookin' all... cutesy!
...
Heh heh... I'm only yankin' your chain. Didja think I was really steamed?
Just getting a little of my own back after all the pranks you've pulled.
H-hey, easy! Y'don't need to get so mad! I'm sorry, okay?
Huh? You weren't really ticked?
Haha... Beat me at my own game...

Season's greetings, Cap'n!
Don't forget, if ya weren't good this year, Santa's not comin' to see ya!

2

So tonight's that special night, huh? I always used to look forward to presents from Santa.
Hmm? What kind of presents did I get?
Let's see... wooden toy tools, a model airship. Stuff like that.
That airship was my favorite. Wherever I went, I would always bring it with me.
Come to think of it, whatever happened to that thing?

3

Oy, (Captain). Get any presents from Santa Claus?
You're grinnin' from ear to ear, so I thought you might've...
Heh-heh. Seein' that smile on your face makes me smile too.
But watchin' all the kids get presents sure is hard for the adults.
Makes me wish I were a kid again.

4

What? You want my help giving out presents to the crew?
Haha, you came to the right place!
Right, so I'll dress up as Santa—
O-oh... You wanna be Santa, (Captain)?
Then I guess I'll be the reindeer...
Vyrn's got dibs on that? Well, whaddyou even need me for then?
Whaaat! The sleigh? Whaddya mean, the sleigh!
Oh yeah, go ahead. Have a real good laugh at ol' Rackam's expense...
Well, I guess you deserve to have your fun. Tonight's about celebration after all.
All right then! If it puts a smile on your face, I guess I'll be your sleigh, or whatever else you want!

To Fix What's Broken[edit]

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.



Rackam: Whistle...
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: Whoa!
Child: ...
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[edit]

(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...
Child: Ahhhh!
Vyrn: I knew it! Let’s go help him!

To Fix What's Broken: Scene 3[edit]

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[edit]

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...
Child: ...
Rackam: Hey kid. Hold out your hand.
Child: ...?
Rackam: Here. You can have the part.
Child: What?!
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...

Lyria's Birthday[edit]

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?
  1. Late sleepers, eh?
  2. You just missed them...

Choose: Late sleepers, eh?
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: Okay...
Lyria: ...
Lyria: Erm... are you going out too, (Captain)?
  1. Sure am.
  2. No way.

Choose: Sure am.
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.
Lyria: Oh...
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...
Vyrn: ...
Just them...
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...
Io: Grr...
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.
Katalina: Lyria?
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.
Lyria: Waught!
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.
