A Heavy Heart
(Captain)'s crew and Ryan, having gone to great efforts to save the town, are hailed as heroes. Ryan cannot hide his bewilderment at day-to-day life in the town now that he is so acclaimed. Ryan's little sister, having anticipated a situation like this, sends a letter to him, and he decides to head back to the village where he was born to take a break.
Ryan, the warrior who wields a giant axe. Together with (Captain) and the others, he confronts the bandits who were attacking the town.
Ryan: Look out, (Captain)! Behind you!
Responding to Ryan's warning, (Captain) turns to strike the thief who had been approaching from behind.
Thief 1: Ergh! Damnit...
Thief Leader: What...the hell is going on? How can two people...defeat all my men?
In the heat of battle,(Captain) looks at Ryan and, feeling the bonds of their friendship, thinks back to when they first met.
Long ago, (Captain) and the others headed for a village in the mountains in search of a place to stay. They were stopped by Ryan, who was guarding the village.
Ryan: I can't let anyone enter the village. The Village Chief asked me not to.
Ryan feared the party might be thieves in disguise, but soon realized his mistake and decided to join them chasing out the real bandits who were attacking the village.
Afterward, they rested up back in the village, and since it no longer needed a guard, Ryan asked to join the party on their journey.
Ryan: (Captain), you're so young, but you’re leading all of these people on a journey. I'd like to travel with you and learn from your bravery.
(Captain) agreed, and Ryan made up his mind to travel with the party.
Ryan bounds like an animal and, with one hand, throws his giant axe.
Thief 2: Agh! Ugh...
The axe flies at terrifying speed directly into a man who had been aiming a gun at (Captain) from afar.
Thief Leader: What the hell! How did he know?
Thief Leader: Agh!
Vyrn: Wh-whoa! Ryan's intution is right on the money!
Ryan: Well...it wan't just intuition. I smelled gunpowder. That’s how I knew he was been hiding there.
Vyrn: Huh? Gunpowder? But I didn't smell anything...
Ryan: You didn't? Well, it was faint... It doesn’t matter. Let’s get back to town.
Ryan picks up his axe with a smile, and (Captain) gives him a nod. They and the party head back to town.
When they get back, many of the townspeople offer them words of thanks.
Townsperson 1: Ha, ha, ha! I'm glad we let you guys handle this! I knew Ryan the Hero could do it!
Ryan: "Hero"? That doesn't sound right for a guy like me. I’m not even close to that special.
Townsperson 2: Oh come on, don't be so humble! You saved our town, so you're a hero to us!
Ryan: Uh, okay...
Ryan mutters, and smiles uncomfortably.
Ryan: ...Hey, (Captain). Excuse me a minute. I'll be right back.
Ryan finds somewhere quiet and lets out a tired sigh.
Ryan: ...I just can't get used to this.
Vyrn: Huh? Get used to what?
Ryan: Oh, Vyrn...and (Captain). I didn't realize you were following me.
Lyria: We’re sorry. But we were worried about you.
Ryan: Heh heh...You don't need to apologize. And as for what I said earlier...about not getting used to things...
Ryan: I meant that my skill in battle, my senses of sight and smell, and even my intuition are all getting better. I can feel that every time I fight.
Ryan: But...it doesn’t feel right.
Ryan: I left home to earn money so my sister could have a better life...and then the next thing I know, I'm traveling around with all of you.
Ryan: And now, everywhere I go people call me a hero... It's just too much for me.
Lyria: Hee hee! Isn't it a good thing do be called a hero? We’re proud to have you in our crew!
Ryan: ...Heh heh, proud, eh? Well, if you say so. Maybe I’m just getting tired.
Choose: Okay, you can borrow Vyrn!
- Okay, you can borrow Vyrn!
- Let's rest here for a while!
Ryan: Wh-what! Borrow Vyrn? I-I can hug him and squeeze him?
Vyrn: Haha! You bet! Hug away!
Vyrn: I mean...Hey! I am not an object! You can’t just lend me out like that!
Ryan: Heh heh...you're right. I’m sorry.
Ryan: Thanks for trying to help me feel better, (Captain).Choose: Let's rest here for a while!
Ryan: No, I don’t have time to rest. I have to earn money for my sister.
Ryan: But thanks for trying to help me feel better, (Captain). I appreciate it.Continue 1
Ryan smiles sadly. (Captain) can't think of what to say, and things start to feel awkward.
Ryan opens his mouth, searching for something to say, as if he, too, is trying to break the tension.
Ryan: Um, so....yeah. Mind if I tell you about my sister?
Vyrn: Oh, sure! If you don't mind. We're all ears!
Ryan: Heh heh. Her name is Conlon, and she looks really good in a straw hat. She is just sooo cute...
Ryan: And she's also a farming genius! Conlon’s vegetables are the best in the skies!
Ryan: And she has really good intuition, like me! Heck, better than me! She can even hear the sounds of insects, and the wind!
Vyrn: Haha! She sounds pretty amazing!
Ryan: She is! Heh heh, my little sister really is amazing! She's cute, she's beautiful, and she can do anything!
Beaming, Ryan pulls an unopened letter out of his bag and shows it proudly to the party.
Ryan: She always sends me letters like this. And I always write back, of course.
Ryan: Her letters are always about the same things, but I can feel the love in them!
He opens the letter and starts to read. Suddenly, he freezes, his eyes wide.
Curious, (Captain) peeks at the letter.
"Enough already. Take a break."
Ryan: Hah, hahaha... There’s no fooling her.
Ryan: I guess she noticed...that I’ve been wanting a break.
Lyria: Haha... She really does have good intuition. Oh, Conlon...
Ryan: Well, if Conlon says so... I guess I’ll take a break.
Vyrn: Really? Well in that case! Let's head to your home town! I’d love to meet your sister!
Ryan: ...Good idea! Heh heh, let's do it!
Ryan: How long has it been since I've been back? Now I'll get to see Conlon again! Heh heh heh... Oh, I can't wait!
Ryan: But (Captain)...you have to promise me one thing.
Ryan: You might fall for my sister, and that's fine...but lay a finger on her, and you’d better prepare to die!
(Captain) nods, intimidated by Ryan’s indescribable intensity.
Ryan: All right then, it's a promise. Now, let's care of any jobs we still need to finish up!
Ryan: Then we can head for my hometown! I'm coming to see you, sis! Just you wait!
Vyrn: Wow...Ryan becomes a totally different person when he starts talking about his sister...
With a wry smile of agreement, (Captain) sees the joy in Ryan’s face and thinks about how that may be the first time in a while that he looked so deeply happy.
The whole party is delighted at the idea of going to Ryan's hometown.
(Captain)'s crew and Ryan have stopped at Ryan's hometown for some rest and relaxation. Ryan has been eagerly waiting for a long time to see his little sister, and so he heads toward her house. However, when he gets there, instead of his sister, he finds only a letter she left for him which reads: "Big brother, I have decided to run away from home. I'm going to the forest." Ryan rushes into the monster-filled forest to find his sister, and (Captain) and the crew hurry after him.
Having taken care of all their requests, (Captain) and the others visit Ryan's hometown.
As they move through the peaceful village, people gather around to celebrate Ryan's return.
Villager 1: Whoa, look! It's Ryan! Glad to have you back!
Villager 2: Oh my, look how strong he's become! And are those his friends? They're all welcome here!
Ryan: Thanks. So, is Conlon home?
Child: Uh-huh! She was just in the fields taking care of the plants!
Ryan: Was she now! Conlon, your brother’s coming home!
Vyrn: Hey, hey, wait! Everyone just came out to welcome you! Slow down, Ryan!
Villager 2: Hee hee. It's all right. He's always been like that—he only has eyes for his sister.
Villager 1: But...isn't Conlon angry with him?
Villager 2: Well...I’m sure it will be fine. Have fun at Ryan's place, you guys.
Though confused by the villagers’ comments, the party follows after Ryan.
Ryan: You’re finally here! This is my home—the best house in the world, where my little sister is waiting.
With a goofy grin on his face, Ryan opens the door.
Ryan: I'm hooome! Conlon, it's me, your big brother!
Vyrn: Um.... Nobody's here.
Ryan: What! That doesn’t make any sense... And she wasn't outside, either...
Lyria: Hmm... Oh! Look, Ryan! There's a letter.
Lyria directs Ryan’s attention to a letter on the table.
He picks up the letter, and his eyes open wide. He begins to tremble.
Vyrn: What's wrong? What does it say?
Our heroes look at the letter. Adorable handwriting spells out a message to Ryan.
"To my dear brother. I’ve decided to run away from home. I’m going to the forest."
Ryan: Run away? What! Why?
Vyrn: Hey! Ryan, calm down! She said she was going to the forest!
Ryan: The forest...as in, THAT forest? The one with all the monsters? Conlon! I'm coming for you!
Vyrn: Whoa! That was fast!
Lyria: She said she's...running away, right? So why would she tell him where she's going?
Vyrn: I have no clue... Anyway, we better go after him!
(Captain) agrees. They hurry after Ryan into a forest supposedly infested with monsters.
Family Longings: Scene 2
Looking for Ryan's little sister, (Captain) and the crew progress into the forest. On the way they find a second letter from Ryan's sister, and from its contents they realize she is playing around. However, Ryan is so worried about his little sister that he leaves (Captain) and the crew behind, bounding up the mountain at remarkable speed.
The party searches every corner of the forest, but there are no signs of life aside from the monsters they defeat along the way.
Ryan: ARRGH! CONLON! Where ARE you! It's dangerous here! Come home, Conlon!
Ryan: Why did you have to run away! Are going through a rebellious phase? Ergh...!
Vyrn: Um...Ryan? Could you calm down for a minute?
Lyria: Don't you think it’s a little strange? That she would run away from home, but still tell you where she was going?
Ryan: Hey! There's someone in the forest!
Ryan appears to have sensed something. He goes tearing off into the forest at incredible speed.
Vyrn: Whoa! Wait! Ryan, come back!
(Captain) and the others hurry after Ryan.
Ryan stands there, stiff, a letter in his hand.
Lyria: So, uh...what does it say this time?
Timidly, the party leans in to see the letter.
"To my dear brother. I see you still have the instincts of a wild animal. I'm going to the mountains. Don't look for me."
Vyrn: Uh... I get it now. I think she's just messing with you, Ryan.
Lyria: Haha. Yes, that must be it. She wrote where she's going, but then says not to look for her...
But Ryan is distraught. He holds his head in his hands, trembling uncontrollably.
Ryan: The mountains? No... Not...THOSE mountains?
Ryan: She'll get hurt in a dangerous place like that! CONLON!
(Captain) and Ryan had narrowly escaped death a number of times together.
That being the case, (Captain) had a pretty good idea of the extent of Ryan’s physical abilities.
And the speed and nimbleness which Ryan demonstrated at this moment was, without a doubt, the best (Captain) had ever seen.
Vyrn: Hey, what are you waiting for! This is no time for sitting around with a misty look in your eyes! After him!
(Captain) nods, flustered, and chases after Ryan, who is already out of sight.
Family Longings: Scene 3
Despite following Ryan to the very summit of the mountain, his little sister is still nowhere to be found. Instead, however, they find a basket containing vegetables and another letter. The vegetables were the prize crop grown by Ryan's sister, which he takes to be a sign of her antagonistic love for him. Ryan enjoys the delicious vegetables and the splendid view of his hometown from atop the mountain, and in his heart he vows to return again.
(Captain) follows Ryan all through the mountains, but Conlon is nowhere in sight.
But at one mountain peak, the party does find a charming basket containing delicious-looking vegetables and a single letter.
Ryan takes the letter from the basket and calmly begins to read it.
Vyrn: Erp... Is everything gonna be okay this time? Wh-what does it say?
As Ryan reads, the party timidly leans in to see the letter.
"To my silly brother: All this time and you haven't come home once. Did you think you could just show up and expect to see me?"
"You're so silly. I wanted to see you so badly, but I all I got was money and letters..."
"Think about that. You won't see me this time, but next time...you will. So you'd better come back again."
Ryan: ...So that’s it. She’s exactly right.
Ryan: It really has been a long time since I last saw her...since I came back home.
Ryan: How many years has it been? ...How long since I’ve been home, and we played together like this?
Vyrn: What! You mean, you KNEW she was playing with you?
Ryan: Heh, she’s my dear little sister. I usually know what she’s up to. Well...I'll have to come back later then.
Lyria: Um...are you sure you don’t want to see her? After we came all the way here?
Ryan: I can't go against her. Besides, if I force her to see me now, she might hate me, and I...I couldn’t bear that.
Ryan's shoulders slump sadly. He looks dejected.
While searching for something to say, (Captain) notices another letter in the basket.
Ryan picks it up, and he and the party read it together.
"Look under the vegetables. And make sure to eat them. I’m very proud of them. And enjoy the view."
Puzzled, Ryan removes the vegetables and looks at the bottom of the basket, where he finds an adorable plush rabbit.
Ryan: Th-this is...one of Conlon’s handmade stuffed animals!
Lyria: Wow! It's so cute!
Ryan: Ahh! Ah! This is amazing! I've never seen a stuffed rabbit so cute! And it's so soft and furry!
Ryan: Conlon! I'll come back, I promise! You're brother will be back again!
Ryan feels his sister's love deeply—and he and the party stuff their faces with the tasty vegetables.
They enjoy the pleasant taste and tang of the vegetables as they take in the view of the village from the mountain summit.
In his heart, Ryan vows that he will come back to his hometown again.
A Brother's Love
After rescuing a young boy and his sister from a pack of monsters, Ryan begins to think of his own sister and becomes jealous of Lucius, whose sister is always around. Ryan then prods Lucius into acting more affectionately toward his sister, causing Lucius to blush.
As part of a mission for Siero, the crew goes to fight off monsters in the forest.
But as they make their way through the trees, they hear a sound off in the distance. The sound of children screaming.
Ryan: We'd better hurry!
Brother: S-stay back!
(Captain) and company run toward the commotion. There they find a boy protecting his sister with a stick as monsters steadily creep closer.
Lucius: Be gone, fiends!
Ryan and Lucius charge in and take on the monsters before anyone else has a chance.
With the flash of a sword and the swing of an axe, the duo fight them off and save the children.
Brother: Thank you!
Lucius: Geez, kid. You thought you could beat those monsters with a twig?
Brother: I'm sorry.
Lucius: Humph... You were pretty brave, though. Impressive.
Ryan: He's right. You did good, kid.
Ryan bends down and ruffles the hair of the kids.
As he does, he looks the boy in the eye and lets out a chuckle.
Ryan: You keep that sister of yours safe, you got that?
The boy gives his sister a big hug and pats her on the head.
(Captain) and the crew watch the adorable scene and smile.
Lyria: It must be nice to have siblings. Now I wish I had some.
Vyrn: Heh heh. Well, these two each have sisters of their own! I'll bet you both know how that boy feels.
Lucius: Yeah, I guess. Anyway let's see these two off to the village.
The crew takes the siblings to the village and then leaves for the ship.
The brother and sister wave goodbye as they watch the crew leave. Ryan smiles back at them, but then he starts to get misty-eyed.
Lucius: What's the matter?
Ryan: I really wish I could see Kunlun now.
Ryan carefully takes out the handwritten letter from his sister, Kunlun. As he reads it, tears begin to well up in his eyes.
Ryan: Sigh. You all went with me to visit my hometown some time ago.
Ryan: But up until then I had just been sending home money and letters. I hadn't gone to see Kunlun at all, so she was pretty mad at me.
Ryan: That's why she didn't want to speak to me then.
Lucius: Humph... I guess that means you haven't seen your sister in a while, have you?
Ryan: Yeah. But she told me in this letter that she would actually see me next time.
Ryan: Heh, I want to give Kunlun a big hug too. Just like that boy did.
Lucius: What? You want to... hug her?
Lucius's eyes grow wide as he stares at Ryan.
Ryan: Come now, you're not that surprised, are you? Maybe you don't understand because your sister is always around.
Ryan: Oh... When two siblings can't be together, they miss each other so much.
Hearing Ryan yell, the crew members in front immediately turn around.
Vyrn: Why are you shouting? Don't scare us like that!
Lyria: Maybe he was just worried about his sister?
Ryan: Aww... Geez, I miss Kunlun. I wish I could see her. Lucius sure is lucky.
Ryan stares directly at Lucius with a look of envy.
Lucius: Hey, don't look at me like that.
Ryan: So, Lucius. Do you show your sister that you care about her?
Lucius: Yeah, I guess.
Ryan: What? Yeah, I guess? That won't do. That won't do at all!
Vyrn: Come on, you don't have to get so worked up about it! I mean, Lucius is—
Ryan: You stay out of this, Vyrn. This is just between us guys with sisters.
Ryan: If you can't say it confidently, your sister can't possibly know that you care.
Ryan: You have to take the time to express your love!
The more Ryan tries to get his point across, the more fired up he gets.
Even Lucius, who wasn't really listening at first, realizes Ryan's point and starts to second-guess himself.
Lucius: (I care about Teena in my own way. Isn't that good enough?)
Lyria: Umm, Lucius. Are you okay?
Lucius: Hey Lyria. If you... had a brother, would you want him to be like Ryan?
Lyria: W-well... I'm not sure...
Ryan: Humph. Lyria has never had a brother before, so she has no idea.
Ryan: So then, let's give it a shot!
Lyria: Huh? What do you mean?
Ryan: Hahaha. We're going to practice showing our brotherly affection, of course!
Ryan: How about it? You be the sister, and Lucius will be your brother!
Ryan: Go for it, Lucius!
Ryan gives Lucius an encouraging pat on the back, but Lucius doesn't share his enthusiasm.
Lucius: Ugh. This is stupid. You don't have to do this, Lyria.
Lyria: If it helps you and Teena, then I guess it's okay.
Lucius: What? What are you trying to say?
Ryan: That's the spirit, Lyria!
Ryan: Hah hah hah hah! All right, Lucius! Lyria will be Teena. Be sure to give her lots of love!
Lyria: Okay, I'm ready! We can start whenever you want!
Lucius: Lyria, how can you be okay with this?
Lucius: Stop looking at me like that! Come on, Captain! You have to put a stop to this!
Choose: Why don't you just try it?
- Why don't you just try it?
- Be nice, Brother!
Lucius: Tch. I can't believe everyone's getting onboard with this!Choose: Be nice, Brother!
Lucius: What! Not you too, (Captain)!Continue 1
Lucius: (Geez. What a predicament...)
In an effort to try and escape, Lucius quietly starts scooting backward.
Ryan: Hey! Are you just going to ignore your sister? You think that'll make her happy?
Lucius: Ack! I... I...
Ryan's words fill Lucius with all kinds of emotions that swirl around inside him.
Lucius: (Ugh... What are these... feelings? What do I do?)
Seeing the worried look on Lucius's face, Vyrn gives him a pat on the shoulder.
Vyrn: Ryan is taking this thing pretty far. Looks like we don't have much of a choice here.
Vyrn: Let's just get this done and head home.
Wait, I ain't no lizard!
Lucius: (Hah. I guess he's right. If we're going to put this behind us, we'd better just get it over with now.)
Lucius: (Besides I have to prove it to them. I have to prove my love for Teena.)
Ryan studies Lucius and pauses for a moment. He wants to see if Lucius has turned over a new leaf.
As he does, everyone else follows suit and the air quickly fills with silence.
Lucius: (Ugh! This is so nerve-wracking! But... it's okay. It'll all be over soon.)
Lucius: Let's do this!
Lucius swings his arm around and awkwardly places it on Lyria's head, patting her clumsily.
He then puts on a big brotherly smile for Ryan.
Lyria: Wow, Lucius. Hehe.
Lucius: Tch. Happy now?
Ryan: Great work! See? You can do it if you try!
Lyria: Hehe. That was very sweet of you, Lucius!
Vyrn: Nice job! Even I was surprised. You really looked the part!
The words of praise from the crew cause Lucius to blush. Feeling his face turn red, he starts to dart away but instead turns to face the crew.
Lucius: Humph. Are you just going to stand there all day? We don't have time for this. Let's go already!
Vyrn: Heh heh. You don't have to act so embarrassed! Hey, wait!
The crew follows Lucius back to the ship, smiling all the while as they think of the great moment they had just shared together.
