Eat and Be Merry
Io remembers that her journey with the crew started when her master told her that magic exists to make people smile. Her staff and clothes begin to overflow with magical power just as monsters begin attacking the village, and she hurries to the rescue.
Faced with a swarm of monsters, Io finds herself unable to use magic. She and (Captain) escape deeper into the forest.
Io: Whew... We... We should be safe now...
Io: But why? Why can't I use my magic?
Io: This has never happened before... I don't know what to do! What should I do?
Io: Sniff... Sob... Master... Master!
Io: How? How can you be so calm?
Io: I know, but... Why are you trying to act all relaxed about it?
Io: I can tell from the look on your face that you're just as worried as me!
Io: But if I can't use magic... then I guess I really will have to leave the crew.
Io: So my journey ends here... It's weird... It feels like everything back in Valtz happened so long ago.
Io: Sigh... How did I end up traveling with you guys anyway?
Sierokarte: That mage you found has woken up, (Captain)! Right this way! No need to be scared!
Io: N-nice to meet you. It seems like you saved me. Thanks.
Lyria: Hey, Io, what kind of person is the archduke?
Io: Well... he's sloppy, slobby, and forgetful. But he has a heart of gold.
Io: He truly believes that magic exists to make people happy. And you can tell from the way he uses his abilities.
Vyrn: One more push! Just take out the giant's body and we're done!
Io: Just watch me, Master. I'm gonna use the best, strongest magic I have to bring back your smile... just the way you taught me!
Tzaka the Great: I know. Follow your heart, Io.
Tzaka the Great: The empire's brought a lot of misery to a lot of people... It's time to beat the empire to a pulp and give those victims something to smile about!
Io: Right! I've decided, (Captain)... I'm coming with you!
Io: To make people smile...
Io: That's right... I decided to travel with you guys so that I could use my magic to make people smile...
Io: But here I am, worrying about my talent... worrying about not being as good as that other mage.
Io: I'm sorry, Master. I don't deserve to call myself your apprentice...
Io closes her eyes and begins to concentrate quietly.
Io: Heh-heh... I did it!
Io: Oh! (Captain), you're finally smiling again! What a relief. You looked so worried before...
Io: Huh? What the...
Io: Whoa! My magic power is overflowing all of a sudden! What's going on?
Io: It almost seems like the clothes and staff my master made are reacting to my magic...
Vyrn: We've got trouble, guys! But wait... What's with that getup, Io?
Io: Hey, lizard... This is... um... First of all, what's this about trouble?
Lyria: A swarm of monsters is heading for the village!
Io: What? The same ones that attacked us?
Io: We have to help the villagers! Let's go, (Captain)!
Eat and Be Merry: Scene 2
The female mage from earlier struggles against the swarm of monsters. Io and the crew show up just in time to save her, but she doubts their chances. This doesn't stop Io from squaring off against the monsters.
The crew returns to find that the monsters are already closing in on the village, and a single female mage is holding them off.
Female Mage: Take that!
Villager 1: No, Miss Mage! There's no end to them! You have to get out of here!
Female Mage: I'll buy you some time! You guys get out of here!
Villager 2: Thank you so much... You'd better catch up to us, all right? We'll be waiting!
Female Mage: Ugh... There are just too many of them...
Female Mage: What a swarm... Looks like my time's up...
Io: Hey! Don't even think about giving up!
Female Mage: It's you... and the rest of your crew...
Vyrn: You okay, lady? Wait... You're hurt!
Lyria: We need to get you treated right away!
Female Mage: I'm fine... Don't worry about me. You guys need to flee, or your journey will end here.
Io: You're the one who needs to flee! Just leave this to me!
Female Mage: Don't be silly! Your magic won't be enough to handle them!
Io: We'll see about that!
Female Mage: Now you listen here, little lady! I refuse to let a child like you sacrifice herself!
Io: Excuse me? Is that what you think I'm doing?
Io: I just want to make everyone smile... And that includes you! That's what mages are for!
Female Mage: ...!
Io: Here we go! Let's get 'em, (Captain)!
Eat and Be Merry: Scene 3
Io annihilates the encroaching monsters with her newly strengthened magic, stunning the female mage with her growth. After some encouragement from Io, the female mage agrees to help her protect the village.
The crew manages to drive off the monsters, and the female mage is stunned by Io's powerful magic.
Female Mage: That was incredible... To think you had such potential...
Io: Heh-heh! Even I'm a little surprised!
Lyria: That's our Io! But it looks like there are still monsters outside the village...
Vyrn: Whoa! They just keep coming!
Io: Can't they take a hint?
Hey, can you still fight?
Hey, can you still fight?
Female Mage: I think so... What's your plan?
Io: I want you to stay and protect the village while we go drive the monsters away. How about it? Can you trust me with this?
Female Mage: ...
Female Mage: Hehe... Very well. If I can trust anyone with my life, it's you. Go get 'em, girl!
Io: Will do!
Vyrn: Get moving then! They're coming from the plateau!
Lyria: Come on, everyone! It's time to go on the offensive!
Io: Let's flatten 'em!
Eat and Be Merry: Scene 4
After the crew drives away the monsters, the female mage acknowledges Io's power and gives up on joining the crew. Confident once more, Io resumes her journey to make even more people smile.
After defeating monsters left and right, the crew finally drives the swarm away. No one has even noticed that a new day has broken.
Villager 1: Thank you, Io! Your magic is incredible!
Villager 2: Yeah! It was just breathtaking! Let me make a monument in your honor!
Io: Oh, shut up already! Just yesterday you people were ignoring me!
Female Mage: Hee-hee! Oh, don't be that way. You're the one who put those smiles on their faces.
Vyrn: You did a great job! I can't believe you're the same girl who was crying like a baby in the forest!
Io: You shut your lizard mouth!
Lyria: Hee-hee! The archduke helped too.
Io: That's true. I can't believe he laced my clothes and staff with something like that...
Female Mage: Hee-hee... I guess I'm no match for you.
Female Mage: I've decided to give up on joining your crew. With you around, I don't think I'll be needed... What a pity.
Io: Are you sure? It wouldn't hurt to have another mage on board. Why not come with—
Female Mage: My pride would never allow it. I'll just find an even better crew! Hee-hee... See you around.
Io: There she goes...
Io: Oh! I just remembered! I... I need to apologize... Um... About yesterday... The things I said...
Vyrn: Don't sweat it! We know you say stuff you don't mean when you're mad.
Lyria: Don't worry about it! We're just glad you came back!
But still... I'm sorry.
But still... I'm sorry.
Vyrn: Oh? What's this? More tears?
Io: Back off, lizard! It's rude to get all up in a lady's face!
Vyrn: Ouch! Don't hit me with the archduke's staff!
Lyria: Hee-hee! I'm so glad Io is back to normal!
Io: Heh-heh... Time to head back to the Grandcypher!
Thus Io overcomes her hardship and grows from the experience.
She returns to the skies, following her dream of making people smile.
