Ocean Loving Coast Guard
The crew retire to the beach after successfully completing a mission. Once there, Lyria is distraught when she sees a young man jumping off a cliff. The man, named Joel, turns out to be a coast guard. He tells the crew of the legend of an endless sea, somewhere beneath the skies. Thinking it might help him find a way to get there, he asks to join the crew of the Grandcypher.
(Captain) and crew had taken on a job delivering goods to Auguste.
Upon finishing the job, the crew took the opportunity to enjoy some time off at the beach.
Lyria: Ah! I'm so glad that smell that was coming from the water's finally disappearing!
Vyrn: Right! The old man at the shop said that he was in real trouble with the beach closed during tourist season.
Vyrn: Heheh, but now things should be back to normal in no time! We'll be up to our necks in tourists before you can say "sea"!
As they walked along the beach, watching the waves roll in, Lyria suddenly shouted out in surprise.
Lyria: Ah! Look! What's a person doing way up there?
The young boy, who was stood on top of a rocky outcrop, took a deep breath, and dived into the sea below.
Lyria: AAAAH! Th-th-this is terrible! He fell into the water!
The distraught Lyria started rushing towards the water, but before she got there the young boy resurfaced.
Lyria: Are you OK? You're not hurt, are you? Did you bang your head? Are you concussed?
???: Huh? What's going on? What's wrong with her?
Lyria: You just fell from that cliff, that's what's wrong!
???: Oh, you mean my dive? Don't worry, I do it all the time.
Lyria: You do it all the time? You mean, you're clumsy?
???: What? I guess you don't come to the beach often, do you?
???: That rock is really popular with divers. There are no rocks beneath it, so it's really safe.
???: I guess it looks pretty dangerous if you don't know that. Sorry if I startled you.
Lyria: No, no, don't apologize. In fact, I should apologize for overreacting!
???: Are you guys tourists? The beach itself is still closed, so I'm afraid not many of the shops are open right now.
???: Hey, it's almost lunch. Let me take you to a restaurant I know.
Vyrn: So Joel, you patrol the beach and make sure that no one gets into trouble? Like some sort of…guard of the coast?
Joel: That's right. But with the beach closed, all the coast guards are on vacation.
Vyrn: But, if you're on vacation, what're you doing here?
Joel: Because I love the ocean. I love swimming in it, I love just watching it. I can't imagine being anywhere else.
Joel: I like to watch the ocean when I'm stressed.
Lyria: "Stressed"? Are you in some kind of trouble?
Joel: Not in trouble, but I do have a dream. Lyria, have you heard that beneath the sky there lies a massive ocean?
Lyria: What! There's something beneath the sky? And it's an ocean?
Joel: That's what the legends say. Ever since I was little, all I've wanted to do is swim in that endless sea…
Joel: If I didn't have my job here, I don't think I'd be able to stop myself from looking for it.
Joel: Not that I'd know where to start.
Vyrn: Hmmm… I ain't never heard of anyone making their way beneath the sky.
Vyrn: I mean, if you were going beyond the sky's edge we might be able to help you. That's where (Captain)'s father is.
Joel: The sky's edge? You mean Estalucia, Island of the Astrals?
Lyria: Exactly! We're looking for the sky's edge. Isn't that right, (Captain)!
Joel: (Captain), I think I might want to join you on your quest.
Vyrn: Are you sure, Joel?
Joel: Sure of what?
Vyrn: I mean, you know we're heading to the sky's edge, right?
Joel: Right, you said earlier.
Vyrn: But you said that you want to go beneath the sky, didn't you?
Joel: That is my lifelong dream, yes.
Vyrn: But…wait…what? We're not trying to get beneath the sky, why would you want to come with us?
Joel: What? Oh, I guess I need to explain.
Joel: I want to get beneath the sky, but I don't know how to do it.
Joel: You're aiming for the sky's edge, but you be stopping off at all kinds of places along the way, won't you?
Joel: As we go along on this arduous journey, I can look for a way down. That's why I want to join you.
Vyrn: I still don't get it! Can't you make it any simpler?
Joel: Humph. Sorry, I don't think so.
Joel: So, (Captain), how about it? Can I join you?
Vyrn: Joel, you OK? You went quiet all of a sudden.
Joel: Huh? Oh, it's nothing. I just didn't expect you to say yes so quickly, I'm in shock.
Joel: I… I'm OK with that. I have to swim in that endless sea!
Joel: Anyway, I have a spell to make orbs of water on land. I'll have to make do swimming in those.
Lyria: Wow! That's amazing! You'll have to show us later!
Joel: Sure thing.
Joel: I'll try my best to be useful to you and your crew. You won't regret it, (Captain).
And so Joel, a young coastguard looking for a way to the endless sea beneath the sky, joined (Captain)'s crew.
Does the boundless ocean that he so longs for actually exist? Only time will tell for these intrepid travelers.
