Official Profile[edit]

Age 9
Height 135 cm (grew 3 cm)
Race Human
Hobbies Books (especially with pictures), playing with Lyria, and recently, reading maps
Likes Volenna, Graphos, and the crew
Dislikes Being too forward and meeting new people
A girl raised in a castle among the glistening silver sands of the Brillet Desert, Sara is under the constant protection of Graphos, the sand god, and her guardian, Volenna. When the primal beast Manawydan went berserk and threatened to bring rain to Brillet, Sara used Graphos' power to seal the primal away, but she nearly pays with her life. Sara is the kind of gentle, well-mannered, brave young girl who would willingly sacrifice her own life to save the lives of others. With few opportunities for social interaction, Sara is quite shy, and rarely speaks.

Happy birthday, (Captain). I wish you only the best this year!
And I hope we get to go on more adventures together too...

2

Happy birthday, Captain!
How's the past year been for you?
If it's been a good year, then...
I hope I had something to do with it!
Just knowing that would make my day!
I hope this next year will be even better for you, Captain!

3

Happy birthday, (Captain)
Um... I'm really thankful that you've taken me into your crew...
The world is such a vast place, with so many wonderful things to see.
So... I hope that I can keep going on new adventures together with you, Lyria, and everyone else.
And I hope that we'll find something wonderful together!
Here's to another year of wonderful discoveries!

4

Sara: Happy birthday, (Captain)!
Graphos: ...
Sara: Graphos says he also wants to wish you many happy returns!
Graphos and I are both very grateful to you and Lyria for taking us along on your voyage.
Thanks to you, we've seen so much, learned so much, and had so much fun!
I hope we'll get to travel with all of you forever and ever!
Even if we reach the end of the skies one day, I hope we'll just pick a new destination and keep on going...
Ah, sorry. I'm getting ahead of myself, aren't I?
It's just that I enjoy our time together so much...
I hope you're having just as much fun as we are, (Captain).
Hehe. I'll do my best to try and add whatever sunshine to your days that I can!

Happy New Year Cutscenes

Happy New Year!
My New Year's resolution? I want to be able to express myself better... What's yours?

2

Happy New Year, Captain!
My New Year's resolution is to improve on cooking, sewing, and laundry.
Volenna's really good at all of them, so I'm asking her to teach me. Once I get good, I'll be able to help everyone!
Huh? What's wrong, Captain?
You've been good, so you want a New Year's gift? Well, I can give you a hug at least!
You're so good to everyone, and we all depend on you, so you deserve this hug!

3

...
Um... Happy New Year, (Captain). Let's have another great year!
I woke up early enough to see the morning sunrise today. It was a weird feeling...
Something as simple as the sun rising over the horizon shouldn't be such a big deal.
But for some reason, for someone like me to greet the new year like this...
I can't seem to find the words, but...
Sniff...
Hee hee, isn't it weird? I'm starting to cry, even though I'm so happy!

4

Zzz... Zzz...
Yawn... Hm? (Captain)?
Good morning...
Huh? It's Ne—
Gasp!
When did I fall asleep!
Lyria and I were trying to stay up all night to see the first sunrise of the new year...
Oh? It's almost that time, so you came to wake us up?
Wow! Thank you!
Let's get everyone on the deck to see it!
Lyria. Lyria, Wake up.
It's the first sunrise! Let's go watch it!
I bet it will be so beautiful!

Valentine's Day Cutscenes

Happy Valentine's! Um... how do you feel about chocolates?
If it's okay with you, would you like to eat some with me?

2

Umm, Captain? I... Uhm...
This is for you!
I made these Valentine chocolates with Volenna...
Volenna is really good at making them. They're delicious!
Um, sorry if you're busy... You love chocolate? Thank goodness!
I poured my heart into making these. I hope you like them, Captain!

3

Umm, (Captain)! Um, this chocolate is for you... Happy Valentine's Day!
Volenna and I made it together. I already gave it a taste, so I think it should be good!
Anyways, I hope you'll like it!
I'll always cherish you, (Captain), but for some reason...
It's kind of embarrassing to show you like this. I wonder why?

4

Um... (Captain)...
Would you like some chocolate? For Valentine's Day...
Volenna... helped me make these too...
But she said we should try flavoring it ourselves... So...
Because Volenna is really good at making food, hers will be better...
Mine might not be so tasty...
But please throw them away if they taste bad!
Huh? You couldn't possibly do that?
But...
Okay... I'll make sure that the next time I make these, they're really, really tasty!
If they aren't this year, then I'm sorry... But at least they have my love inside them.

Yes, Captain? Is everything okay?
Huh, this is for me? As thanks for Valentine's?
This makes me so happy! Thank you so much!
Can we eat this together right now?
Everything tastes better when we share it with those closest to us!

2

Wow... Such adorable packaging! Is this really... all for me?
Yay, thank you!
Hehe... This made my day, (Captain). I'm so glad you remembered me.
You treat each and every one of us in the crew with so much care, (Captain)
Not only that, it seems to come so naturally to you. I'm really glad you're our captain.
You're an inspiration, (Captain)... I wanna be just like you someday!

3

Thank you very much for the White Day present, (Captain)!
Giving and receiving presents, it's all so exciting isn't it?
I didn't really get to do things like this before joining your crew...
I'm so lucky to be able to see the world like this with everyone else in the crew... It's all thanks to you, (Captain).
I hope that someday I'll be able to pay you back for everything, little by little!

4

A White Day present?
Wow... Thank you! I'm so happy!
You always make me smile...
I'm just so happy...
But also kind of...
I just wish there was something I could do for you to make you as happy as I am.
I don't know much and I can't do much...
So... I don't think I'll be able to return the favor anytime soon.
But... I want to! So badly!
So just give me a little time to think.
Knowing you're waiting for me to make you happy is all I need.

T-trick or treat!
Huh? You'll take the trick?
Um, I take it back! I-I don't do tricks!

2

Hmm, a trick... Oh, hi, Captain!
Do you know what we're supposed to do for a Halloween trick?
Volenna and Jin told me to have fun playing tricks today, but I don't know what to do...
Huh? They might have been playing a trick on me when they said that? You really think so?

3

I can't believe I caught a cold on Halloween, of all days...
Ah! (Captain), you're here...
Achoo!
Sorry, I know I promised to come with you.
But it seems I've caught a cold. It must be a surprise for you and Lyria...
What? You're okay with being surprised because it's Halloween?
Hee hee. You're weird, (Captain).
The next time I surprise you, it won't be from a cold. That's a promise!

Happy Holidays Cutscenes

1

Happy holidays!
I get so excited looking at all the lights in town and all the decorations. The trees look so pretty!

2

So this decoration goes here and...
Maybe we could use more fluff to make it look snowy! What do you think, Graphos?
Ah! You were here all along, Captain? Mm...
I'm making this tree festive by decorating it with pine cones.
I wish I had a present for everyone dear to me...
Volenna, Lyria, Jin...
And, of course, you and everyone else on the crew.
Actually, you've probably already figured it out. But here's my present for you, Captain!

3

Hmm, hmm...
Ah, (Captain)! Please, don't look!
Ah, sorry! I'm not mad at you or anything!
It's just... the crew taught me, remember? I'm making holiday cards for everyone.
For Volenna and Jin...
Of course, you and Lyria as well!
I'll give it to you once it's done, (Captain). So until then... No peeking, okay?

Heart Lock[edit]

After Manawydan is sealed away, Graphos's power becomes unbalanced, causing Sara to fall ill. When (Captain) and company visit her, they hear the castle staff bad-mouthing her and convince her to leave the island with them.



Sara is a young woman fated to sacrifice her life to seal away the primal beast Manawydan—a beast capable of bringing disaster to Sable Island in the form of a violent rainstorm.
But thanks to Lyria, she manages to cling to her life even as she seals away Manawydan.
Sara's health fails some time after that, so (Captain) and company visit her to see how she's doing.
Lyria: Sara! We've come to see how you are!
Sara: Cough... Lyria, I'm glad you came.
Vyrn: You're actually looking better than I thought you would! Thanks for coming all the way from your room to the castle entrance to greet us.
Sara: Think nothing of it. I was really looking forward to seeing you, so I couldn't just wait in my room.
Sara: Besides, I'm doing better today than usual, so it wasn't a big deal.
Lyria: Thank you, Sara. But don't overdo it, okay?
Lyria: Let's go back to your room! We brought gifts for you!
Sara: Okay, Lyria. This way, (Captain).
Sara: My room is right around the corner.
As (Captain) and company approach Sara's room, they overhear the people of the castle talking.
Servant 1: Help me clean the priestess's chambers.
Servant 2: What? No way. Didn't I do it last time?
Servant 1: Yeah, but going alone gives me the chills. It feels like I'll be cursed.
Servant 2: Oh, I know what you mean. When a priestess of the sand god seals away Manawydan, she normally dies.
Servant 2: It's weird that the current priestess is still alive... There seems to be some sort of curse at play.
Vyrn: Listen to them shooting their mouths off!
Graphos: ...!
Sara: Aahh! Graphos, settle down.
Lyria: Graphos's power is surging! Sara, hang in there!
Sara: Ugh... Cough.
Vyrn: It's no good. She's as pale as a ghost! Let's get her to her room, (Captain)!
Lyria: Sara, are you okay?
Sara: Cough... Yeah, I'm fine now. I'm sorry for making you worry.
Graphos: ...
Sara: Graphos, don't be so sad.
Sara: I'll be all right. And no one in the castle was hurt.
Vyrn: Those jerks really need to stop running their mouths!
Lyria: Exactly! Don't they realize Sara risked her life to save Sable Island?
Sara: Well, it's my fault they're feeling uneasy.
Sara: So that puts me in the wrong. I need to pull myself together.
Vyrn: Whaddya mean it's your fault?
Sara: I think they fear that Graphos's power might go out of control.
Lyria: Really? But that's never happened before, has it?
Sara: No, but Graphos can't properly control its own power right now.
Sara: The power of Graphos's seal is tied to Manawydan's existence.
Sara: But because Manawydan was stripped of its power, the power of Graphos's seal no longer has anywhere to go.
Sara: And that means it's now more likely that Graphos could go out of control... Cough.
Lyria: I see. Is that maybe part of the reason you're sick?
Sara: Cough... Yes, probably.
Sara: If only I could contain all of Graphos's power. Then it wouldn't be able to run rampant...
Sara: And no one would fear me or Graphos.
Sara: I have to be strong... Cough.
  1. Don't try so hard.
  2. Let's just whoop 'em all!

Choose: Don't try so hard.
Sara: Huh? But if I don't do the best I can—
Vyrn: Nope! (Captain)'s right!
Vyrn: If Graphos's power is making you sick, then, yeah, we gotta do something about that.
Vyrn: But there's no need for you to overdo it for people bad-mouthing you!
Sara: So I don't have to try so hard?
Lyria: Exactly! You already did plenty by sealing away Manawydan!
Lyria: From now on, just focus on the things that make you happy!

Choose: Let's just whoop 'em all!
Sara: What?
Vyrn: All right, (Captain)! I'll back you up!
Sara: Hold it! Let's not do anything hasty!
Sara: I'll do everything I can to keep Graphos under control!
Lyria: Sara...
Vyrn: But you can't just let them say whatever they want about you. That's not kindness! It's just being a doormat!
Sara: A doormat?
Vyrn: That's right! And if you keep getting bad-mouthed like that, it might even annoy Graphos enough to send him on a rampage.
Sara: You may have a point. I suppose I do need to stand up for myself.
Continue 1
Sara: What was that, (Captain)? You want me to travel with you?
Sara: Thank you for inviting me... But in my current condition, I would surely be a burden...
Lyria: But staying here and continuing to overdo it would be even worse for your health!
Vyrn: That's right! We need to get you out of this castle, Sara!
Sara: Lyria, Vyrn, (Captain)... Ugh...
Graphos: ...!
Vyrn: Are you okay, Sara? Does it hurt somewhere?
Sara: I just... I don't want to stay here!
Sara: I've been wanting to say that to someone for so long!
Sara: Take me with you! Please!
Lyria: Okay, let's go together! You've already done so much good here, Sara.
Sara: Cough... Cough... Thank you.
Thus Sara leaves the castle and its taint of ill will to set out on a journey with (Captain) and company.
Sara: Oh. Hello, (Captain).
Sara: What? You want to know what I was doing just now? Well, I was looking at Sable Island.
Sara: It looks so tiny from this far away.
Sara: That cramped little island has been the only world I've ever known.
Sara: ...
Sara: (Farewell, my hometown.)
Sara leaves her home to reexamine her strength and who she really is.
She hopes her journey will help her find a place in the world for herself and Graphos.

Kind World[edit]

(Captain) and company go shopping in a large shopping district and then visit a local restaurant. They hear about a shrine dedicated to a spirit that protects the town and decide to pay it a visit, but they end up pursuing a man who tries to run without paying for his meal.



(Captain) and company reach a town with a large shopping district.
Sara: Wow! There are so many people and shops!
Sara: Um... Is there some sort of festival going on today?
Vyrn: No, I heard it's always like this here! This town is the trading hub for all the surrounding islands.
Sara: So it's always this lively? Wow!
Lyria: Sara, let's check out the shops together!
Lyria: Oh! Those sweets look really good...
Sara: Wait, Lyria! (Captain), Vyrn. Let's go!
Lyria: Wow, this ribbon is so pretty. Ah, but it's expensive.
Sara: Hehe. This hair ornament would look really cute on you.
Lyria: Oh, which one?
Lyria and Sara have fun looking around the shopping district.
The crew gets tired of walking before long and heads to a nearby restaurant for a break.
Lyria: Whew, that was so fun!
Sara: After all that looking around, I can't believe we haven't even seen half the shops yet!
Sara: Hehe. There's just so much to do here. Right, Graphos?
Graphos: ...!
Vyrn: Glad you're having fun, Sara!
Lyria: Yeah! Graphos seems to be having fun too. I'm so glad.
Clerk: Thank you for waiting. Here's your tea and sweets. Ours are the best around here!
Sara: Wow! I've never seen treats like these before!
Clerk: Haha, is that so? Please, enjoy!
Lyria: Yum! So sweet! This is delicious!
Sara: Munch... Wow. It's so good!
Lyria: Here, Sara. Have some more! Open your mouth and say ah!
Sara: Wha! Okay... Ah.
Lyria: Hehe... It's nice to finally be able to do this together.
Lyria: I've always wanted us to hang out like this. What a fun day!
Sara: Lyria...
Lyria: Thanks for bringing us here, (Captain)!
Sara: I'd like to thank you as well... Oh! (Captain), you open your mouth too!
Lyria: Hey, no fair Sara! I want to feed the captain too! Here! Say ah, (Captain)!
(Captain) and company enjoy their time at the restaurant.
Lyria: Whew, I'm stuffed!
Vyrn: Let's do some more shopping after we rest a bit!
Lyria: Yes, there are still a lot of shops to check out!
Clerk: Oh, are you tourists? If so, you should stop by the shrine at the end of the shopping district.
Sara: The shrine?
Clerk: Yes. It's dedicated to the spirit that protects our town. It may be small, but it's splendid.
Sara: I see! Then maybe we ought to go pay our respects. What do you think, (Captain)?
???: ...
Clerk: Sir, your bill... Huh? He ran away? Th-thief!
Sara: Wha? Oh no! Let's go after him, (Captain)!
Sara: Stop! You shouldn't run away without paying!
Lyria: Yeah! You're causing a lot of trouble for that clerk!
Food Thief: Damn it! Leave me alone! All right, that's it!
Sara: ...!
Graphos, lend me your power!

Kind World: Scene 2[edit]

The spirit that protects the town begins rampaging, causing a sudden tremor. Sara learns from Graphos that the spirit is furious because its shrine was destroyed, so (Captain) and company battle it to calm it down.



Food Thief: Ugh! What's with these brats? Bunch of cheaters!
Sara: Food doesn't come easily. There are people who grow the ingredients, people who transport them, and people who prepare the food.
Sara: So many people have to work before the food finally reaches our plates.
Sara: That's why you have to show some gratitude and pay what you owe!
Food Thief: Why don't you make me!
Lyria: Hmm... So he won't listen to reason. That's too bad.
Vyrn: Yep. Let's just hand him over to the guards and let them deal with it!
The store clerk thanks (Captain) and company for turning in the food thief and lets them stay the night for free as a show of gratitude.
Vyrn: Whoa, I know you're trying to thank us, but it's awfully generous treating us to dinner too!
Clerk: Nonsense! You've been a great help. This is nothing!
Lyria: Wow! This dinner looks as good as the sweets!
Sara: Hehe. I'll dish out the food, Lyria.
Just as (Captain) and the others are about to happily begin their meal, they feel a sudden tremor.
Sara: Huh? What's happening?
Lyria: Such a strong tremor! And this presence... Could it be the spirit?
Vyrn: What's going on? We better go outside and check, (Captain)!
Spirit: ...!
Lyria: Oh! It really is the spirit!
Spirit: ...!
Sara: Why's it so angry? I thought the spirit protected this town.
Graphos: ...
Sara: Huh? Someone destroyed the spirit's shrine? No wonder it's gone berserk.
Sara: That's awful. Who would do such a thing?
Sara: (Captain). Graphos says we need to fight that spirit.
Sara: Once it vents its rage, it should calm down.
Vyrn: The town will be rubble and dust if we don't do something! We've got no choice, (Captain)!

Kind World: Scene 3[edit]

Sara and Graphos save a boy from falling debris. The food thief from earlier boasts that he destroyed the shrine because he hates the crew and the people of the town, so Sara decides to teach him a lesson.



Spirit: ...
Sara: It calmed down? Thank heavens.
Lyria: There was a lot of damage done to the town...
Sara: Yeah...
Boy: Sob...
The crew hears the crying voice of a boy who was injured during the spirit's rampage.
He doesn't seem to notice that the crumbling roof above him is about to collapse.
Sara: Oh no! Graphos!
Graphos: ...!
Graphos and Sara manage to shield the boy just before the debris comes crashing down.
Sara: It's okay now. Come on, let's go somewhere safe.
Boy: Sob... Th-thank you! I was so scared!
Lyria: Whew... I'm glad Sara and Graphos got there in time!
Food Thief: Damn! Still in one piece, huh?
Sara: You're that food thief from earlier!
Food Thief: Duh! Thanks to you idiots, I had to pay a fine!
Lyria: Grrr! Idiots? You're the one who was wrong!
Food Thief: Shut your mouth! I'm sick of you idiots and everyone in this shopping district!
Food Thief: That's why I smashed their precious little shrine. You shoulda seen how angry the spirit was!
Food Thief: I was sure it'd crush all of you morons, but you're all okay? Forget that!
Vyrn: Wha? You destroyed the shrine? What's wrong with you?
Sara: So you caused trouble for the townspeople, destroyed the shrine, and enraged the spirit... What do you have to say for yourself?
Food Thief: Nothing, kid! And you're not the only one with friends! We're gonna finish what the spirit started!

Kind World: Scene 4[edit]

The chairman thanks (Captain) and company for pacifying the spirit and for saving the boy, who turns out to be his son. When Sara learns that the chairman is not especially bothered by Graphos, she realizes that she has a lot to learn about the world.



(Captain) and company defeat the food thief, and the guards lock him up this time.
The chairman approaches (Captain) and company to thank them for stopping the food thief twice and calming the spirit.
Chairman: I don't know how to thank you... We never could have pacified the spirit on our own.
Vyrn: Really? Glad we happened to be in town!
Sara: But maybe if we hadn't been here, that food thief wouldn't have gotten angry enough to destroy the shrine...
Chairman: No, that guy was like a ticking time bomb. It's not your fault.
Sara: Are you sure?
Chairman: I'm certain of it! By the way, you saved a boy in the middle of all that commotion, right?
Chairman: He's actually my son. My wife and I were both working late that day... We owe you our deepest gratitude.
Sara: ...!
I see. I'm glad he was okay.
Lyria: Sara's the one who saved him!
Sara: Lyria! You don't have to tell him that!
Chairman: My goodness. Is this true, young lady?
Sara: Um... You see... Uh...
Graphos: ...
Sara: Aahh! G-Graphos, no! You'll startle them!
Chairman: Oh, so you helped this young lady save my son? You're a lifesaver. Thank you so much.
Sara: Um... Aren't you afraid of Graphos?
Chairman: Haha! Of course not! Trade is prosperous on this island.
Chairman: We get a lot of different folks here, so I'm used to unusual sights.
Sara: Really?
Chairman: It seems you have great power. I'm glad you happen to be so kindhearted.
Sara: ...!
Chairman: Now if you'll excuse me, I still have some tidying up to do in the town. I'll be back later with your reward. See you then!
Sara: ...
Lyria: Sara? What's with the blank expression?
Sara: Um... It's hard to explain. I guess I just realized that, even though I left my island, I've still been living in a pretty small world.
Sara: No one back home would accept me, so I thought no one outside ever would either.
Sara: But I see now that I was wrong. There are a lot of people in this world capable of accepting me.
Sara: I finally realize that I don't have to be scared. It's like my eyes are open at last.
Lyria: Sara...
Sara: Sorry, Lyria... I know you, (Captain), and the others accepted me from the beginning...
Sara: But I didn't see it until now!
Lyria: Sara.
Sara: Yeah?
Lyria: When I was locked up before, Katalina used to talk about how blue the skies were, but I didn't get it at all.
Lyria: I only understood how wide and blue the skies were when I stepped outside myself. Just like you, Sara!
Sara: Lyria...
Sara: Thank you, Lyria. And you too, (Captain)!
Sara: Thank you so much... for showing me the outside world!
Ever since departing on her journey with (Captain) and company, Sara's tightly locked heart has been opening up little by little.
Her little feet have carried her out into a big world waiting to accept her with open arms.

From Fear to Faith[edit]

Sara and Scathacha venture out into town in search of items needed by the crew. A disgruntled customer terrorizes Sara causing Graphos to appear, and Sara flees in tears. Scathacha convinces Sara to have more confidence in herself and, if need be, to let others be afraid of her.



(Captain) and the crew are in the middle of resupplying on an island when they receive an urgent mission to take care of monsters elsewhere.
The captain speaks with each crew member, looking for volunteers to stay behind and keep shopping for provisions.
Vyrn: Oof... Looks like everyone's already got plans tomorrow.
Scathacha: What's gotten you in a flutter, my fellow dragon?
Vyrn: We're sorta having trouble finding people to go shopping tomorrow.
Scathacha: Oho... And what exactly needs to be bought?
Vyrn: The usual—groceries, medicine, stuff like that. Sara's rarin' to go, but...
Vyrn: We're a little worried about leaving her on her own. So we're tryin' to get her a buddy.
Scathacha: Hm... Sara... Ah, yes, the girl who travels with the sand god. I think I have a general idea of the situation.
Scathacha: In that case I shall accompany her on this shopping trip.
Vyrn: You sure? I thought you'd be busy with all the stuff happening on Alster...
Scathacha: That's already been resolved. A bit of shopping is just what I need to kill some time.
Vyrn: Gotcha! You're a lifesaver! I gotta go deal with takeoff prep, so I'll leave the rest to you!
And so the rest of the crew departs for other matters, leaving Scathacha and Sara to shop for supplies in the town.
Sara: ...
Scathacha: Sure is nice to take a stroll through a place like this. It's full of energy.
Sara: Hm? Oh. Yes, it is...
Sara: ...
Scathacha: Are you feeling nervous?
Sara: Um, a little... I was all excited to go into town before, but now it's like I'm always looking over my shoulders...
Scathacha: I see. Well, it's not as if you have to stress yourself out. I can tell at a glance this is a nice town.
Sara: Thanks for worrying about me. You're right. Stressing out doesn't help.
Sara: Oh, that store looks good. Can we go in?
Sara chooses a store from among the row of businesses and enters.
Pharmacist: Ooh, lucky me! I've got two cute customers today. Welcome.
Sara: Hello. Um, I need the medicine on this list...
Sara shows the pharmacist the wrinkled note that she'd been gripping tightly.
The pharmacist goes down the list, nodding to herself as she grabs each item off the counters.
Pharmacist: I think that's everything. It's kind of heavy, so try not to drop it, okay?
Sara: I'll be okay.
Whoa, this is heavy... Thank you very much.
Sara's relief blossoms into a beautiful smile as she receives the package from the pharmacist.
Scathacha: Well, well... Your stomach may be full of butterflies, but you handled that quite nicely.
Sara: Really? Hee-hee, thank you. You're too kind, Scathacha.
Scathacha: Haha. Hearing those words from a pure-hearted person like you puts my heart at ease.
Sara: You're really good at compliments, Scathacha.
Pharmacist: My, you two get along really well, don't you? It's like you're sisters or something.
Sara: Sisters? Us?
Customer: Excuse me. I'm sorry, but I'm in a hurry here...
Pharmacist: Hello, be with you in a second!
Sorry, I have another customer. Please come again!
Sara: Uh-huh. Thank you!
Sara and Scathacha exit the store.
Graphos: ...!
Sara: Geez, now you're saying stuff like that too, Graphos? That's not nice to Scathacha.
Scathacha: You two sound like you're hogging all the fun. Let me join in too.
Sara: Um, Graphos was just teasing me about the sister stuff from before...
Scathacha: So the sand god finds it agreeable as well. Interesting.
Sara: Huh? You're not mad?
Scathacha: Hehe, not at all. Me, an elder sister... Heles is one too...
Scathacha: Actually, what does an elder sister do anyway?
Sara: Hm... Well, Volenna gives me hugs and protects me. She carries my stuff too, I guess...
Scathacha: Very well. Then I shall carry that package for you.
Sara: Wha... Wait, that was just an example! There's no way I could ask someone like you to carry a plain old box!
Scathacha: I don't mind. I said I would carry it for you. Don't make me have to repeat myself.
Sara: O-okay... Thank you very much...
Scathacha: And quit being so formal with me. Pretend like you're talking to your sand god when you speak to me.
Sara: Huh? Oh, okay. From now I'll speak with you as if—I mean, you got it.
Scathacha: Hehe, that's more like it. I'm not a fan of formalities.
Scathacha and Sara enjoy window shopping as they make their way to the next shop.
All the while they are unaware of the other pedestrians who smile at the sight of such a jovial pair.
Sara: There's the grocery store that has a bunch of things we need.
Scathacha: Look at how busy it is. Time to go in.
They slip by the adults towering over them and head inside.
Rude Customer: Ow! What the! Who the hell just stepped on my foot?
Sara: Eek! I'm sorry. It was an accident...
Rude Customer: Tch...
Scathacha: What's wrong, Sara?
Sara: N-nothing... Let's go...
The store owner has already rung up his customers but is still engaging them in boisterous chitchat.
Sara: What should I do...
Sara looks for the right time to interject but keeps hesitating. Finally Scathacha steps in.
Scathacha: You there, owner. We'd like to make a purchase.
Grocer: Oh, terribly sorry, young patrons. How can I help you today?
Scathacha throws a wink at Sara and gives her a gentle push on her back.
Sara: Um, I need the things on this list. And could we maybe borrow a shopping cart to put everything in?
Grocer: Sure. We're gathering all the carts right now, but I'll get you one soon.
The owner calls out to another employee who brings in a shopping cart, and they begin to fill it up with items from Sara's shopping list.
Scathacha: I believe this is going to take a while with all the various items we asked for. Let's go take a look around until they're done.
Sara: Yeah. Ooh, these fruits are pretty. I bet they taste delicious!
Rude Customer: Nooo! N-not the eggs!
Grocer: Next, how many eggs does she—Gasp! What a mess! Did you do this?
Rude Customer: Huh? No way! I just came over to help clean up! That little devil's the one that knocked over the egg stand!
The man points to Sara who is still standing by the fruits with Scathacha.
Sara: Huh?
Rude Customer: Humph. Playing the I-don't-know-anything card, eh? Too bad I saw the whole thing!
Sara: That's not... I didn't... I...
Rude Customer: You denying it? Show me a liar, and I'll show you a thief! Didn't your mama ever teach you that saying?
Rude Customer: Listen, girlie. You think just 'cus you're small you can take stuff without paying?
Grocer: Wait. Is that true, miss?
Sara: Sob... I...
Graphos: ...!
Sara: No! Graphos! You can't come out!
Rude Customer: Wh-what the heck is that!
Other customers hear the commotion and crane their necks to get a better view. They gawk at Graphos.
Sara: Aaah!
Scathacha: Sara! Where are you going?
Unable to stand the countless stares from strangers, Sara covers her face and races outside with Graphos.
Rude Customer: Tch, she might be just a girl, but she's a menace.
Ow, ow, ow! What are you doing, stinking brat!
Scathacha: Owner, this is your store; use your head. Here's your egg smasher. Ask him what really happened.
Grocer: Well, that may be, but unless you have any proof it's pretty much your word against his.
Scathacha: I can't believe this. What do you think that gooey yellow stuff all over his shoes is?
Grocer: By gum, talk about egg on your face. Or shoes, I guess. Honestly, I had my thoughts that she couldn't have done that, but I still suspected her anyway. I feel terrible.
Scathacha: Humph. Well, as long as you've learned your lesson. Now if you'll excuse me, I have a friend to fetch. Watch over our things for us.
Placing the medicine package into the cart, Scathacha chases after Sara.
Sara: ...
Graphos: ...
Sara: Huh? Yeah, I'm okay. Thanks for coming out to protect me, Graphos.
Sara: Phew...
Scathacha: Huff... Huff... There you are.
Sara: Scathacha, I...
Scathacha: Forget it. You've been proven innocent.
Scathacha: But why did you run off like that when you didn't do anything wrong?
Sara: Oh, um...
Sara recounts her difficult past living with Graphos as the Priestess of the Dunes.
Scathacha: Hm... I never knew.
Sara: I thought people would only ever be afraid of me, but on this journey I've learned there are people who are understanding.
Sara: That's why I decided to live life without fear, but... Sob... I thought I'd made so much progress... Sniff...
Sara: It turns out I still lose my confidence when that many people stare at me... I can't help but think they're scared of me...
Scathacha: How kindhearted you are.
Scathacha: A little too much in fact. If I were you, I'd let those who fear me be afraid.
Sara: But if I do that, then no one will—
Scathacha: Wait. Let me finish. As a true dragon, I exist above the monsters who fear me. However, I don't feel alone.
Scathacha: They revere my strength, thus nipping any needless violence in the bud, allowing me to preside over eternal peace.
Sara: Huh?
Scathacha: Hm, you're still too young to understand difficult concepts. Let me try to break it down for you.
Scathacha: You have a power that no one else does. That's the undeniable truth. Are you with me so far?
Sara: Yes...
Scathacha: Now if you accept that fact, you should be the one to reach out to the people that fear you.
Scathacha: They will sense your power and realize that you're no ordinary person.
Sara: So then nothing changes...
Scathacha: That is change. Consider what happened before. If that man had known how powerful you are, he wouldn't have accused you of anything.
Sara: You're right! Because he would have been afraid of me...
Scathacha: Mm-hm. Then Graphos wouldn't need to come out and protect you from all the people scaring you, right?
Sara: Yeah, I guess so. I think I get it.
Scathacha: Listen, Sara. Uniqueness is nothing to be ashamed of. Don't mistake fear for evil.
Scathacha: Have faith in yourself. Everyone has high hopes for you. Right, Graphos?
Graphos: ...!
Sara: Yeah, that's why you're always worried about me, Graphos.
Sara: Thanks, Scathacha. I'm going to try to believe in myself and Graphos more often.
Sara: Because everyone else already does.
Scathacha: Excellent. That's what I want to hear.
Scathacha: Anyway, the store owner is waiting for us. Let's go back.
Sara: Okay! Let's go!
It may be a while before Sara can stand tall with the kind of confidence that others around her will come to appreciate.
Until that day arrives, Scathacha is content to play the part of big sister for a bit longer.
