Chat Noir Steals the Show!

A security detail is assigned to Vyrn, but then a second, identical (Captain) appears. Vyrn fools the fake (Captain) with a trick question, after which the fake reveals himself to be Chat Noir.

The Grandcypher is currently moored in a harbor, for even airships need to rest their wings.
Swans slumber away by the lake shore, indifferent to the white fog that surrounds them.
Meanwhile, the crew is lost in dreams of their own as they lie in their warm, down-filled beds.
It's a peaceful morning scene that could put a smile on anyone's face.
Morning eventually passes. The crew, trying to suppress their yawns, awake to the afternoon sun.
Vyrn: Morning, Lyria. We slept in pretty late today.
Lyria: Good—yawn—morning, Vyrn. I still feel sleepy for some reason.
Lyria: Ah, good morning, (Captain)!
(Captain), Vyrn, and Lyria exchange pleasantries on the deck, when they spot a scrap of paper on the ground.
Lyria: What's this? There's something written on it.
I will be paying Vyrn a visit in the evening.
Phantom Thief Chat Noir
Vyrn: Huh? Is that all it says?
Lyria: Oh! This must be a letter about Chat Noir's next target!
Vyrn: Now wait a minute, just wait a minute here! Why am I the one he's after?
Lyria: I don't know! But if we don't do something, you're going to get kidnapped!
Just then, a shadow appears behind the group.
Vyrn: Yipes!
Katalina: And just who exactly is going to kidnap Vyrn?
Vyrn: Katalina! You scared me!
Lyria: Eep! Where did you come from, Katalina?
Katalina: Vyrn? Kidnapping? Don't make me laugh!
Katalina: None shall lay a single finger upon Vyrn for as long as I, Katalina Aryze, draw breath!
Vyrn: Hahaha! With you around, I've never felt safer, Katalina!
Vyrn: Well... We don't have much of a choice, do we? I guess we'll have to see what Chat Noir wants.
Lyria: Yeah! It should be fine if everyone shows they mean business!
Katalina quickly takes charge as Vyrn's bodyguard.
Night falls and the crew waits on the deck of the Grandcypher, where a trap net has been set.
Katalina: It's late. When is he going to show up?
Lyria: Yawn. He needs to hurry up. It's already bedtime.
Vyrn: Sigh. Why does he have to make this such a hassle?
Katalina: Heh, perhaps he's scared of my perfect bodyguard detail.
Katalina: The day is almost over. Our victory is close at hand!
Just then, the door of the cabin slowly begins to open.
And who should appear from the cabin but (Captain).
Katalina: Huh? (Captain)?
Lyria: Oh my gosh! What's going on?
Vyrn: No matter how you look at it, this has got to be Chat Noir's handiwork!
Two (Captain)s stand on the deck of the Grandcypher.
Both of them face each other and accuse the opposite person of being a fake.
Katalina: Confound it! Which one is the real (Captain)?
Vyrn: They're like mirror images! There's gotta be some way we can tell them apart.
Lyria: What do we do? Um, let's see... The real (Captain) is...
Vyrn: Is it the (Captain) who's been here with us the whole time, or is it the (Captain) who just came out of the cabin?
Katalina: Hold on, you two! You're trying too hard to make judgments using your instincts.
Katalina: Vyrn. Ask (Captain) a question that only you and the real (Captain) would know the answer to!
Vyrn: That's one way to do it!
Lyria: It's a test of the memories you two share, Vyrn!
Vyrn: Okay, here goes! Ready?
Vyrn: What's my favorite way to eat apples?
Vyrn: (I'm countin' on you, (Captain). The real you should know the answer.)
  1. Apple juice!
  2. Apple pie!
  3. Apple jam!
  4. Candied apples!

Choose: Apple juice!
Vyrn: Well, you did make it for me that time I got sick.
Vyrn: I was really touched by your kindness.
The (Captain) who had been with them since the beginning answers Vyrn matter-of-factly.
Go to "Continue 1"

Choose: Apple pie!
Vyrn: That's true. You did learn how to make apple pie from that super-skilled granny.
Vyrn: You've been baking pies for special occasions ever since!
The (Captain) who had been with them since the beginning answers Vyrn matter-of-factly.
Go to "Continue 1"

Choose: Apple jam!
Vyrn: I don't remember when exactly, but we got too many apples once, so you made them into jam.
Vyrn: And it was so good on freshly-baked bread!
The (Captain) who had been with them since the beginning answers Vyrn matter-of-factly.
Go to "Continue 1"

Choose: Candied apples!
Vyrn: That takes me back. We bought it from a stall at a festival.
Vyrn: I accidentally dropped mine in the mud, so you gave me yours instead.
The (Captain) who had been with them since the beginning answers Vyrn matter-of-factly.
Continue 1
On the other hand, the (Captain) who came from the room has not yet answered and continues to stand in silence.
Vyrn: Ahahaha! I've figured it out!
Katalina: Really?
Lyria: So who's the real one, Vyrn?
Vyrn: Ahem. The real one... is you!
Vyrn points to the (Captain) who had come from the cabin.
Katalina: Huh? That's the real (Captain)?
Lyria: What makes you so sure?
The (Captain) who had come from the cabin finally speaks.
The answer to Vyrn's question is silence.
Vyrn: Yep! (Captain) passed the test without saying a thing!
Vyrn: You wanna know what I like the best? Raw apples!
The other (Captain), the one who been there the whole time, shows no surprise at Vyrn's answer.
Vyrn: The jig is up, Phantom Thief! Show yourself!
As soon as Vyrn finishes, the other (Captain) leaps into the air before alighting nimbly on the edge of the airship.
Chat Noir: Heh heh heh. Well done. I must commend you on seeing through my ruse!
Chat Noir: You were able to see through my disguise... Hm, perhaps I've underestimated you.
The crew gathers around the real (Captain), and they all turn their attention to Chat Noir.
Lyria: Thank goodness. Are you all right, (Captain)?
(Captain) reassures Lyria with a nod.
Katalina: There's still something I don't understand. We were with (Captain) the entire time!
Vyrn: That's right! When did they switch places?
Chat Noir: Very well. Allow me to explain.
Chat Noir begins to reveal the whole story.
Chat Noir: To answer your question, I had switched places with (Captain) from the very beginning.
Vyrn: How's that possible!
Chat Noir: What a wonderful reaction. I filled the ship with sleeping gas earlier this morning.
Vyrn: Aha! That's why we all overslept today!
Chat Noir: Once I had you all in a deep slumber, I donned my disguise and infiltrated the ship.
Chat Noir: Then I tied up the real captain and locked them up in the bilge.
Chat Noir: Finally, with the switch complete, I placed the letter for you to find with everyone none the wiser.
Katalina: But if your goal was to kidnap Vyrn, why didn't you do it when we were all asleep?
Chat Noir: Heh heh heh. My goal was never to kidnap Vyrn.
Chat Noir: My real goal was to confirm the capabilities of your crew, (Captain), with my own eyes.
Chat Noir: Based on what I've seen from this little exercise, I would say that your capabilities are the real thing.
Vyrn: Uh, I think you might have just pulled a fast one on us, to be honest.
Lyria: Yeah. We were completely fooled.
Katalina: Indeed. We'll have to beef up security around here after this.
Chat Noir: No, wait. Your defenses are adequate. If you're careful, that is.
Chat Noir: But above all else, I'm most impressed by the way your captain managed to get out of my trap and escape from the bilge.
One has to wonder why Chat Noir's being so nice to the crew.
Chat Noir: Heh heh heh. I'm honored that you acknowledge me as your rival.
Chat Noir: I predict many more mysteries coming your way. Heh heh heh heh.
Chat Noir: Bwahaha! Bwaahahaha!
Chat Noir leaps off the side of the airship, his wild laughter growing fainter as he descends.
Vyrn: Hey! Wait, Phantom Thief!
Like a fleeting scent on the wind, the Phantom Thief disappears.
Then, they see him flying away in a small airship.
Chat Noir: Ladies and gentlemen, I bid you adieu! We shall meet again!
(Captain) and company can only stare as the ship disappears into the horizon.
Lyria: That was something. He's more interesting than I thought!
Vyrn: I bet he rehearsed that exit.
Katalina: But he said more mysteries are to come. It's not over yet, is it?
Vyrn: Sigh. I bet that guy's just an attention seeker.
Vyrn: Geez, and now he's got his eyes on you too, (Captain).
(Captain) lets out a deep sigh.
And that's how (Captain) came to be followed by Chat Noir.
