Happy Birthday Cutscenes

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


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!


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!


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.
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!

Happy New Year Cutscenes

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?


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!


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!

Valentine's Day Cutscenes

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


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!


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.


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 these3 deliciouis chocolates of yours every year around this time.
Maybe I've grown a few sweet teeth, like Eugen.
This is 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.


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!


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!


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!


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)!


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.
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).


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!


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?


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.


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!

So You Wanna Be a Pilot?[edit]

A young girl asks Rackam if she can be his piloting apprentice. He refuses due to her inexperience, and she runs off. The crew later hears that the girl has been arrested for confronting imperial soldiers, and Rackam sneaks off alone that night to help her.

(Captain) and the crew stop by an island to get the Grandcypher a tune-up.
As they make their way through the town, several helmsman from other airships stop Rackam and praise his skill.
Vyrn: Wow, Rackam! You're pretty popular around here!
Rackam: Beatin' up the empire over and over is just the kinda thing that improves your reputation with pilots.
Lyria: Hehe! Some even asked for your autograph!
Rackam: Haha... It's a real pain. I'm not the celebrity type.
Girl: Hey, you Rackam?
Rackam: Huh? What do you want squirt?
Girl: I'm not a squirt! I'm a helmswoman!
Vyrn: Huh? You pilot airships? Oh, do you want Rackam's autograph?
Girl: No! Why would I want his dumb autograph!
Girl: I want to be Rackam's apprentice!
Rackam: Come again?
Girl: I'm gonna be the best helmswoman to ever sail the skies! And I'm gonna steal all your techniques to do it!
Girl: You took on the empire, right? That makes you the perfect teacher!
Lyria: The best helmswoman to ever sail the skies... That's quite a big dream for such a little person!
Girl: I'm not little! Go away, blue girl! The
grown-ups are talking!
Rackam: Since when are you a grown-up?
Rackam: Okay... Pop quiz. What's the easiest type of dynamic force engine maintenance?
Girl: A whosit?
Rackam: What's the standard procedure for a
mid-flight wing tear? How about the three primary air currents in Phantagrande Skydom?
Girl: Um... I...
Rackam: That's what I thought. You were lyin' when you said you were a helmswoman.
Girl: B-but!
Lyria: Really? How did you know?
Rackam: Any helmsman could easily answer those questions. You're a beginner. I bet you've never even touched a ship's wheel before.
Girl: Whimper... Yeah! So what!
Girl: I've worked on an airship before! Cleaning, laundry, luggage, and—
Rackam: You got about ten years left before you can pilot a ship.
Rackam: Go and train in Golonzo. Learn more about airships and how they work. Build your strength, and—
Girl: Shut up! What makes you so high and mighty!
Girl: My... Sniff... My daddy was a helmsman!
Girl: He designed a brand new airship, but he got sick... So I'm going to build it and fly it for him!
Rackam: I see... But you know, bein' a pilot means takin' an entire crew's lives into your hands.
Rackam: You can't rush it. Get out there and get more experience. There's no other way.
Girl: Don't lecture me, you stupid poopy beard!
Vyrn: She's gone. Do you think she'll take your advice, Rackam?
Rackam: She will. Trust me—I could see it in her eyes.
Rackam: She's got an airship she wants to fly... And attitude to spare. But you need guts like hers to pilot a ship.
Lyria: Huh? You seem sort of happy, Rackam!
Rackam: You kiddin'? Course not.
Lyria: Munch... Munch... Wow! This is all delicious. Have you guys had any yet?
Rackam: Haha! Stop talkin' with your mouth full!
After the Grandcypher is finished with its tune-up, the crew takes a minute to grab a bite to eat. A helmsman approaches them.
Helmsman: Hey, Rackam! Did you hear the news?
Helmsman: You were talking to a girl in the afternoon, right? Well, turns out she got into an argument with an imperial soldier, and they arrested her!
Rackam: Arrested! She's just a kid!
Helmsman: Apparently her bags were confiscated, and she flew off the handle at the soldier!
Helmsman: But I'm sure she'll be released soon enough. She would've been fine if she'd just stayed calm... What an idiot.
Rackam: Hope you're right.
Vyrn: You think she's really okay? That wasn't too smart of her...
Lyria: I'm worried about her. I hope nothing horrible happens...
Rackam: ...
Vyrn: What should we do, (Captain)? She'll probably get out eventually, but still...
  1. Let's go and save her!
  2. Let's see what happens...

Choose: Let's go and save her!
Lyria: Yeah! Let's go!

Choose: Let's see what happens...
Lyria: Um... You don't feel bad for her?
Continue 1
Rackam: Hold it.
Rackam: In case you've forgotten, we're being pursued by the empire. You really just want to drop in and say hi?
Lyria: I guess you have a point...
Rackam: She's just a kid. They'll give her a slap on the wrist and let her go.
Rackam: Let's turn in for the night. If you're still worried, we can go in the morning.
Vyrn: If you say so, Rackam...
Rackam: Hmm... Luggage, was it...
Lyria: What? Did you say something, Rackam?
Rackam: Wha—nope. Not a peep.
The crew retires to an inn, where (Captain) is awoken by Vyrn in the dead of night.
Vyrn: Hey... You awake? It's Lyria...
Lyria: Sorry to wake you like this... It's just that I have a really bad feeling...
Vyrn: It's Rackam—he's gone. I checked his room, and nobody's there.
Lyria: Eek! What was that?
Vyrn: That was gunfire! And it sounded really familiar...
Vyrn: Wait! What if it's Rackam!
Lyria: Did he go to rescue that girl by himself?
Vyrn: He didn't even ask us to come with him! What a jerk!
Vyrn: We're comin', Rackam!
Rackam has parted from his crewmates to confront the empire and save the little helmswoman.
With mounting worry, the crew hurries after Rackam.

Only Pilots Get It[edit]

Rackam rescues the girl, but some soldiers find them fleeing, and a vicious battle ensues. The two fugitives are soon surrounded. Rackam decides to let the girl escape on her own, but (Captain) and the others come to the rescue just in time.

Rackam: Jeez... Those guys just never give up!
Girl: Rackam... I'm sorry. I...
The crew met a girl who wants to be a helmswoman, but after getting into an argument with an imperial soldier, she found herself arrested.
Rackam set off on his own to rescue her, but the two of them are spotted during the escape attempt and are currently fleeing into the night.
Rackam: Don't cry. Not matter what, you have to keep lookin' straight ahead.
Girl: But why did you come to save me?
Rackam: You wanna be a helmswoman, right?
Rackam: No matter how much of a little punk they are, I won't abandon another ship-lover.
Girl: This is all my fault...
Rackam: Enough about that. Just hang on to that
bag—your father's plans are in there, right?
Girl: Okay! Oh! There should be some salves in here too...
Rackam: Get down!
Rackam: Ugh...
Girl: Rackam! Are you okay?
Rackam: Yeah, don't worry. Just a little crack in my armor.
Rackam: I'll show them how it's...
Rackam: Dammit! All out of bullets.
Imperial Soldier: Can you hear me, fugitives? We have you completely surrounded! Come out with your hands up!
Girl: What do we do now?
Rackam: Stay cool. Pilots need to be calm and collected no matter what happens.
Rackam: But we're in a tight spot. You run on ahead.
Girl: Don't be stupid! What are you gonna do?
Rackam: I'll figure it out as I go... Maybe I'll just steal a weapon from one of them.
Girl: No! Don't!
Rackam: Cut it out with the tantrum! You never heard of listenin' to your elders?
Vyrn: Ah, you're safe!
You idiot!
Rackam: What are you guys doin' here?
Vyrn: That's our line! What were you thinking coming here on your own?
Rackam: This kid is my responsibility as a helmsman. You guys didn't need to get involved.
Lyria: That's not your choice to make! We're your friends, aren't we?
Rackam: Of course you are, but that doesn't mean you should risk your necks for no good reason.
Lyria: That's not your choice either! It'd be a really lonely world if everyone thought like you.
Rackam: Sheesh... No match for you, am I?
Rackam: Sigh... I get it. I'm sorry. Next time I'll keep you guys in the loop.
Vyrn: Hah! You finally get it!
Rackam: You guys brought extra ammo, right? All right! Let's break through their lines!
Vyrn: Here we go!

Only Pilots Get It: Scene 2[edit]

(Captain) and most of the crew escape the soldiers and board the Grandcypher, but Lyria is taken hostage. Rackam pretends to surrender to throw the soldiers off guard. The rest of the crew quickly joins the fray.

Having escaped the empire's clutches once again, the crew heads back to the Grandcypher and prepares for take off.
Rackam: Everyone aboard? We're liftin' off!
Vyrn: Right! Let's hightail it out of here!
Vyrn: Wait! Where's Lyria? She's not here!
Rackam: What!
Lyria: I'm sorry, everyone...
Imperial Soldier: Stop right there, criminal scum! You don't want this girl to get hurt, do you?
Rackam: Damn... They got her...
Imperial Soldier: You're quite the foolish group. To go so far for a little brat...
Rackam: You're the foolish one—not understandin' the bond between helmsmen.
Imperial Soldier: As if it matters. You will surrender to us at once!
Rackam: All right, all right. I'll turn myself in. There's no reason to yell.
Rackam: But you know... The girl you're lookin' for isn't even here!
Imperial Soldier: What! Then where'd she go?
Rackam: Now!
Girl: Hands off Lyria!
Imperial Soldier: Oof!
Rackam: Haha! Nicely done!
Now's our chance, (Captain)!

Only Pilots Get It: Scene 3[edit]

After beating the soldiers, the crew flees into the sky on the Grandcypher. The girl is grateful to Rackam, but the remaining soldiers send monsters after the ship to try to bring it down. The girl suggests fleeing, but Rackam refuses to do so since his ship has been damaged.

After defeating the imperial soldiers, the crew departs the island.
Night envelops the Grandcypher as it flies steadily away.
Rackam: Phew... Looks like we made it...
Vyrn: Yeah, but only by the skin of our fangs! I'm glad you're safe, little girl!
Lyria: Yeah! And I see that you retrieved your father's plans too!
Girl: Yep, thank you! They woulda still had 'em too if Rackam hadn't come!
Girl: Rackam charging into the prison like that was so cool!
Vyrn: Heh-heh... Wow, Rackam. You pilot types sure are popular!
Rackam: Can it. The plans were important to her, so I had to help.
Lyria: Wait... What's that over there?
Rackam: What? You see another ship or somethin'?
Lyria: No... I thought I saw something shining over by the island.
Lyria: Aaah!
Vyrn: Whoa! What's going on!
Lyria: It's monsters! Monsters are attacking the ship!
Rackam: Dammit! Those imperials must've sent them after us!
Girl: Rackam, let's get outta here! If we go full speed, we can—
Rackam: You're not serious. A helmsmen's ship is his life!
Rackam: And those monsters just hurt my baby! I won't just run off now!
Girl: Rackam...
Rackam: Reverse course! Let's take them on, (Captain)!

Only Pilots Get It: Scene 4[edit]

(Captain) and the crew defeat the monsters and land on a peaceful island. The girl gives Rackam a new set of armor to replace his old cracked set. He brushes off her show of affection and gets her to promise to become a great pilot so they can meet again.

After defeating the monsters, the crew lands on a peaceful island just as the sun begins to rise.
Rackam: Yawn... Dammit, was awake all night...
Vyrn: Phew... I don't wanna do anything like that ever again.
Girl: Heeey! Rackam! Rackam!
Rackam: Sheesh, energetic little brat. Or am I just getting' old...
Girl: I bought you some new armor, since yours got cracked when you were protecting me!
Lyria: Hehe! You should have seen how long it took her to choose it!
Rackam: Ah... Thanks, kid. Now we should probably get to an inn...
Girl: No! Put it on first! We wanna see a
brand-new Rackam!
Rackam: Sigh... Fine. If you insist.
Rackam: There we go... Hey! This isn't too bad!
Girl: Told ya so! See how well I know my armor?
Girl: Also... there's something I wanted to ask you.
Rackam: What is it now? Spit it out, then get yourself to bed.
Girl: Do you... have a girlfriend?
Rackam: Huh! What kind of a question is that?
Vyrn: Heh-heh... I woulda brought snacks if I knew there was gonna be a show.
Lyria: Haha! How exciting!
Girl: So? How bout it, Rackam? If you don't, then I—
Rackam: Seriously, squirt, look... You've got a lot of growin' up to do.
Girl: Hey! Who you callin'—
Rackam: You have to concentrate on training and becoming an amazing helmswoman.
Rackam: Next time we meet, it'll be in the sky, with me on the Grandcypher and you on the ship you've built—your father's ship.
Girl: Hehe. Okay! Pinky swear!
Rackam: Pinky swear!
Rackam stands a little taller in his new set of armor.
He couldn't be prouder to have helped foster the talents of a legendary helmswoman in the making.
