Disorder and Peace
(Captain) and company meet the acrobat Carmelina on a street corner. She captivates not only the men in town but the crew as well. She ends up joining the crew due to her interest in Lyria and Vyrn as potential street performers.
Tired out by the long journey, (Captain)'s crew stops in a certain town and looks for a place to stay.
Man's Voice: Yeeeaaah! Carmeliiina!
Vyrn: Whoa! What in the skies was that? You think there's a monster attack?
Katalina: I think we need to find out exactly what's going on here. Let's go, (Captain).
The crew heads in the direction of the voices and soon sees a crowd of people.
Men: Yeeeaaah! Carmeliiina!
Approaching the crowd, they can see that a group of whooping and hollering ruffians have formed a circle around a woman.
Katalina: What are those men planning to do to that woman?
Rosetta: They sure seem excited... I suspect that they might do something stupid.
Vyrn: This doesn't seem like something we can ignore. Hey! Get away from her, you guys!
Carmelina: Hey, everyone! It's so nice to see all your friendly faces again today! Feeling good?
Men: Feeling great!
Carmelina: Ready to see me in action?
Carmelina: You're not bored of seeing me every daaay?
Ruffian 1: Heh! Never!
Ruffian 2: Yeah! No one puts on a performance like you, Carmelina!
Carmelina: You guys sure know how to make a gal happy!
Men: Woooo! We love you, Carmelina!
Vyrn: Huh? What's up with these guys?
Lyria: Wow... They're really impressed...
Katalina: Not sure I've ever seen anyone quite like them...
Carmelina: Hehe! Without any further ado, let's start the show!
Carmelina: Behold, everyone! My incredibly dangerous chakram, Moon Halo—pokey on the inside and stabby on the outside!
Carmelina: Watch as I throw it into the air... like... this!
Carmelina takes a sharp breath as she hurls the weapon into the air.
She leaps up when the chakram begins to descend, diving cleanly through the center of the rapidly spinning blade.
Katalina: H-how? Is that even possible?
Vyrn: Wowza! That girl's got crazy skill!
After catching her Moon Halo in midair, Carmelina manages a perfect landing.
Lyria: Wow! I love it!
Men: Woooo! We love you, Carmelina!
Carmelina continues with a series of unbelievable moves, drawing ever greater applause with each one.
(Captain) and company are completely enthralled and can't take their eyes off her until she finishes.
Carmelina: Thanks again, everyone! Peace!
Men: Yeeeaaah! Carmeliiina!
Vyrn: Wow... That was really something! I couldn't even pick my jaw up off the floor!
Katalina: Agility, flexibility, and visual acuity... All of her abilities are far beyond those of a normal person. I'm actually a little jealous!
Lyria: Oh! She's coming over here!
Carmelina approaches the crew, greeting her fans and accepting tips as she goes.
Imperial Soldiers: ...
Katalina: Imperial soldiers!
Vyrn: Ugh... What are they doing here? Maybe we should make a run for it...
Katalina: Wait a minute. I don't think they've noticed us yet. With so many people, it should be pretty hard to pick us out.
(Captain) and the crew watch anxiously as the imperial soldiers approach Carmelina.
Imperial Soldier 1: Pardon me. Are you the famous acrobat Carmelina?
Imperial Soldier 1: Everyone's been talking about you. When I heard you were performing here, I just had to come and see you.
Carmelina: Really? I'm always happy to meet a fan!
Carmelina: But I'm so sorry... I'm already finished for the day.
Imperial Soldier 1: Is that so? What a shame... And just when I was finally able to get some leave. But never mind.
Imperial Soldier 1: All right. Let's go, guys. Excuse us, Carmelina.
But just as they turn to leave, Carmelina grabs one by the hand.
Carmelina: But you'll come again, right?
She clasps the soldier's hand, gazing at him with puppy dog eyes. He stammers out a response.
Imperial Soldier 1: Y-you bet!
Carmelina: You too, okay?
Imperial Soldier 2: Huh? But of course!
Carmelina: And you?
Imperial Soldier 3: Ngh! You bet!
Ruffian 1: That's it. That's Carmelina's special move.
Ruffian 2: Yep. No man can stand up to that.
Imperial Soldier 1: Let's move! We have a mission to get back to!
Vyrn: Bwaha! Those soldiers were totally googly-eyed! She's amazing!
Katalina: Yes, she really is. I can't tell whether she's just clever or she calculated that result...
Rosetta: Neither, I'm afraid. That's just how she acts naturally. Scary, isn't it?
Carmelina: Ah! It's your first time here, isn't it? How was it? My performance, I mean.
Katalina: It was incredible. I couldn't tear my eyes away... We should leave a tip, (Captain)...
Katalina: What? Don't you think that's overdoing it just a bit?
Carmelina: Hehe... Your thanks is more than enough!
Katalina: Uh-oh... (Captain)'s obviously serious. Might have to make a quick exit before our coffers take too much damage!
Rosetta: Well, that's the captain for you. If we don't do something, we might end up sleeping on the street tonight.
Lyria: Hey! What's everyone doing!
Katalina: Thank goodness... Don't play with me like that.
Rosetta: Hehe. I'm with you there. That was some wonderful acting.
Lyria: Yeah! I was really impressed!
Katalina: Now hold on... It's not like we don't have any money at all.
Vyrn: Yeah, we're not that stingy.
Carmelina: Oh, it's fine. But maaaybe...
Suddenly Carmelina takes (Captain) by the hand and pulls herself closer to the captain until their faces are inches apart.
(Captain), transfixed by her stare, is unable to move a muscle.
Vyrn: Hey... You're totally spacing out. You okay, (Captain)?
Rosetta: Even (Captain) is completely entranced by her... She really is scary.
Carmelina: You can come watch me whenever you want. It'd make me super happy!
Lyria: Yeah! No way we'd miss it! I thought you were amazing!
Carmelina: Hehe. Thanks!
Imperial Soldier 1: Excuse me, Carmelina. I forgot to ask where you'd be performing next—
Vyrn: Uh oh...
Imperial Soldier 1: Hmm. Haven't I seen you lot somewhere before?
Imperial Soldier 2: Captain! They're that wanted crew!
Vyrn: H-hey, let's get outta here!
Lyria: We'll come watch you again sometime, Carmelina!
(Captain) and the crew take off running as fast as their legs can carry them.
Imperial Soldier 1: After them! Don't let them get away!
Imperial Soldier 2: Yes, sir!
Imperial Soldier 1: Well, Carmelina. If you'll excuse us, we have some business to attend to.
Imperial Soldier 1: I hope to have the opportunity to see your performance in the future.
The imperial soldiers head off in pursuit of (Captain)'s crew,
Carmelina: Hmm, those renegades seemed like a pretty interesting bunch...
Carmelina: I think I'll join the chase!
(Captain) and company continue fleeing from the imperial soldiers.
Imperial Soldier 1: Call for backup! We can't let them escape!
Vyrn: Geez, these guys just don't know when to give up!
Lyria: W-what should we do? They're going to catch us at this rate...
Rosetta: Let's hide in that grove of trees.
Vyrn: Uh, I don't think that's gonna work...
Rosetta: Trust me. I have an idea.
(Captain) nods at Rosetta and ducks behind one of the tiny trees.
Vyrn: Um, I can totally see you! What good's that gonna do?
Rosetta: Lyria, would you mind calling on Yggdrasil for me?
Lyria: Yggdrasil? Okay.
Rosetta: Sorry to bother you, but I have a favor to ask.
Yggdrasil nods, and the trees around the crew begin to wiggle and grow, concealing them perfectly.
Vyrn: Whoa! What just happened?
Rosetta: Hehe. They might have trouble finding us now, don't you think?
Vyrn: Y-yeah, that's true.
Imperial Soldier 1: Tch! Where did they go? Find them! Leave no stone unturned!
Imperial Soldier 2: Yes, sir!
The soldiers salute and hurry off.
Vyrn: Whew. That was close.
In an instant, the trees shrink down and return to their original sizes.
Lyria: Thank you, Yggdrasil.
Vyrn: Okay, now's our chance...
Carmelina: Wooow! That was amazing!
Vyrn: Whoa! Where'd you come from, Hoops?
Carmelina: That was quite a surprise. Say, what sort of trick did you use to pull that off?
Lyria: Um, well...
Lyria: Wait, what brings you here, Carmelina?
Carmelina: Well, I wanted to know more about you guys, so... I followed you!
Vyrn: Wait, what? You followed us?
Carmelina: Wow! A talking lizard? What a strange little animal you are!
Vyrn: Excuse me? I'm not a lizard, and I'm definitely not an animal!
Carmelina: You guys are incredible! I've never seen such a combo of entertainers.
Katalina: Um... Sorry. We're just ordinary skyfarers, not a group of performers or anything like that.
Carmelina: What a waste! How could you not show off such talent?
Vyrn: Regardless of how you feel, we sort of have to keep a low profile.
Carmelina: So you're a little shy... But it's still a waste!
Carmelina: I know! Why don't you guys travel with me for a while?
Carmelina: We'll go to different towns and do performances! It'll be really fun!
Vyrn: Um... But we really can't stand up and perform in front of people...
Carmelina: It'll be fine! I'll perform in town, and you guys can just watch along with everyone else in the audience!
Carmelina: If you can just see the looks on everyone's faces, I think you'll get what I mean!
Carmelina: Do you like surprising people? Because I love it!
Carmelina: When people see my performances, first they're a bit apprehensive, then they really get into it! And then they just smile and have fun!
Carmelina: If we perform, I'm sure we'd hit the big time! So what do you say?
Vyrn: Hmm... Well, there's actually somewhere we need to be.
Vyrn: And why are you performing on your own anyway?
Vyrn: If you want to make it big, why not just join a circus?
Carmelina: As a matter of fact, I was once a member of a group of jesters that performed for the court.
Carmelina: But we came here on a trip, and they just left me behind! And no one's come looking since! Hehe.
Rosetta: I see. But you've got a really outgoing personality and an outstanding act. Do you think that might have made someone jealous?
Carmelina: Perhaps... And so here I am performing on a street corner. I actually love it, but...
Carmelina: Sometimes I really miss the amazing cooking at the castle!
Lyria: Amazing cooking?
Carmelina: Interested in royal grub? I can't blame you—every girl dreams of delicious food!
Lyria: I think I'd like a dinner like that very much!
Lyria: I'd actually like to try all the things that normal girls do!
Katalina: I understand how you feel, Lyria. And I'm okay with Carmelina joining us...
Katalina: But normal girls don't really go to castles and do street performances... I think you might be a little confused.
Carmelina: This is one of the shortcuts to the castle! And if you decide it's not for you, you can just say so!
Lyria: Yeah! Let's eat at the castle! If that's what normal girls want, then let's go!
And so Carmelina, the acrobat who loves to surprise people, joins the crew.
As she leaves the island, the shouts of the men who have come to see her off can be heard ringing out behind them.
