Musician of the Gods
The crew meets the lyre player, Arriet, whose music can captivate even monsters. Her goal is to eliminate conflict with her music, and the impressed Lyria invites her to join the crew. Arriet is at first reluctant, but she soon changes her mind.
The crew has stopped at an island to rest from their journey, when a crowd in the town square catches their attention.
As they get closer, they hear a lyre being played.
Townsperson 1: Ah... What beautiful music...
Townsperson 2: They've been talking about her everywhere... They call her the lyrist of the gods.
Lyria: Wow... Her music is lovely.
Vyrn: And she's so popular! Everyone seems to love her.
Lyria: It's such a relaxing sound... Mind if we stay and listen for a while?
Vyrn: Sounds good! Let's go sit under that tree and—
Townsperson 3: Aahh! A monster! Help!
Vyrn: A monster? How'd it get into the town?
Lyria: This is bad, (Captain)! We need to do something...
Performer: Oh dear, this is simply no place for you.
The crew looks up to see the woman who was playing the lyre earlier standing before the monster.
Vyrn: Hey, watch it, missy! That thing's dangerous!
Lyria: Run away! You could get hurt!
Performer: Hee-hee... I'll be fine. Just watch.
Performer: Do you want to hear an encore? Let me play a relaxing sonata to calm your raging heart.
The woman starts playing a soothing melody on her lyre. The soft sounds echo around the square.
Lyria: Huh? What's going on?
Vyrn: Whoa, you can't be serious! The monster's totally mesmerized!
As the melody comes to an end, the monster turns around and calmly leaves.
Performer: Hee-hee. Thank you for listening.
Performer: See? It may depend on the type of monster, but the power of music is quite moving, isn't it?
Vyrn: Yeah, that was sweet!
Lyria: Yes, it was fantastic! The whole performance was just amazing!
Lyria: When you started playing, it was like we were being showered in light!
Lyria: What was that song called? Do you think if I practiced I could learn to play it too? And about your instrument—
Performer: Now, now. Be at ease.
Lyria: Ah, I'm sorry. I...
Performer: Hee-hee. Thank you. I'm happy to have such an adorable new fan.
Performer: All right... How about a free lesson, just this once? Try plucking the strings of my lyre.
Lyria: Really? Are you sure it's okay?
Performer: Okay, now move your ring finger to the next string... There you go. You're a natural!
Lyria: Wow, I did it!
The crew spends some time relaxing and studying the lyre with the woman, who introduces herself as Arriet. She has been traveling across the skies to spread her music far and wide.
Vyrn: Not bad, Lyria. You've learned how to play an entire song!
Lyria: Yes! All thanks to your teaching!
Arriet: Not at all. Lyria, you have a natural talent for music!
Arriet: We should travel around and play together as a duo! Won't you join me?
Vyrn: Hey now! You can't do that! Lyria's traveling with us, and—
Arriet: Hee-hee... I'm only joking. Sorry, little guy!
Lyria: So do you always travel alone, Arriet?
Arriet: Indeed I do. I'm trying to improve my skills.
Arriet: To soothe the hearts of the people, to calm raging monsters... I want to put the world at peace with my music.
Arriet: I think I could even captivate primal beasts with my lyre.
Vyrn: Wow! Based on your performance in the square, I bet you could!
Lyria: Oh! If you're interested in primal beasts, why not come with us?
Arriet: Huh? With you?
Lyria: Yeah! We're actually an airship crew!
Arriet: An airship crew... I see.
Arriet: A crew, huh? Hmm...
Vyrn: What's up? You can't fly with an airship crew?
Arriet: Well... It's not exactly against the rules, but...
Vyrn: Hm? Whatcha mean by that?
Arriet: I've got a lot to deal with at the moment. Sorry.
Lyria: So.. Is that a no?
Lyria: We go to a lot of different islands, which I thought would help you...
Lyria: And I wanted to hear you perform again...
Arriet: Hee-hee. I'm honored to hear it. But I don't know...
Arriet: You too?
Arriet: I'm not sure that there is one... Though no one's done it before...
Arriet: Well, it would help me with my work. I wonder if I could just report to the knights later...
Vyrn: Your work? Knights?
Arriet: Ah, don't worry about that. It's nothing.
Arriet: Anyway, back to the matter at hand... I think I'll accept your offer after all. Let's travel together!
Lyria: Really? Yay! I'm so glad!
Arriet: Hee-hee... It'll be fun!
Arriet: You can call me Ettie by the way. All my friends do.
Lyria: Okay! We're happy to have you with us, Ettie!
Thus Arriet the musician joins the crew.
There is something mysterious about her, but her beautiful lyre music enchants the crew as they continue their journey.
