Scenario:Katalina - Quintessentially Katalina
Jump to navigation Jump to search
One day, the party witnesses a wedding ceremony in town. Watching the parade, Lyria casually asks Katalina if she has any interest in marriage, but Katalina chides her for acting so carefree in the circumstances. That night, while camped in a forest, the party comes under siege from an ambush of Imperial Soldiers. When Lyria is subsequently captured, the party attempt to rush after her.
One day, when stopping in town to replenish supplies, the party encountered a wedding procession.
Lyria: Wow! Look at that, Katalina! The bride looks so beautiful!
Katalina: Yeah, she does.
Katalina: Looks like they're going to cross in front of us. Let's wait on the side of the street.
The party waited and watched the procession, allowing it to pass in front of them.
Lyria: Hey, Katalina.
Katalina: Hmm? What is it?
Lyria: Have you ever thought of getting married?
Katalina: Eh? M-married? Me?
Lyria: Yeah! I was just thinking how well a dress would suit you…
Katalina: I… I don't think a dress would suit me much…
Katalina: Wha? Cute, me?
Katalina: …look here. You shouldn't jest with adults like that!
Katalina: Ce-ceremony? As if! Do I look I'd have a partner?
Katalina: Honestly… Where do you come up with jokes like this?
Vyrn: Heh heh. It's pretty rare to see you all flustered like this. Guess you have a soft side after all!
Katalina: A-Ahem. Vyrn. I'm hardly what you would call flustered.
Katalina: We're currently being targeted by the Empire. This surely isn't the time to be exchanging such idle chitchat about marriage.
Lyria: Um… Is it really "carefree"?
Katalina: Now now, let's not forget why we're here! Provisions! Provisions!
Lyria: …Oh! Wait a minute, Katalina!
In the middle of shopping, Lyria had stopped to look at a certain piece of armor on display in a shop front.
Lyria: Hey, Katalina! Why don't you try this armor on?
Katalina: Hm? Armor, huh? But we didn't come here for that today.
Lyria: I think it'd really suit you, though. What do you think, Vyrn?
Vyrn: Well, I guess the one she's wearing now does look a bit clunky…
Vyrn: If you had this armor, you might look a little more delicate!
Katalina: M-more "delicate"?
Katalina: Allow me to show you the elegant art of sword fighting!
Katalina: Take this! Icicle Nail!
Katalina: …But you know, Vyrn. The main purpose of armor is to protect one's body in battle.
Vyrn: Well, I guess you got a point there…
Katalina: In any case, there are many Imperial agents around these parts. I wouldn't want to risk Lyria's safety with unnecessary shopping.
Katalina: Come, let's go. Lyria, (Captain).
Lyria: Oh… Katalina.
Katalina hurriedly moved past the armor shop.
Just then, a pair of Imperial Soldiers passing close by espied the party.
Imperial Soldier 1: Hey, look over there! It's those…
Imperial Soldier 2: Uh! The former Lieutenant Katalina and that girl!
Imperial Soldier 1: Yeah, no doubt about it. You go and inform our superiors. I'll tail them for now.
Imperial Soldier 2: Got it. Be careful!
That night, the party had set up camp in the forest.
Katalina chanced to notice Lyria wearing a rather sad face.
Katalina: …Lyria? Are you scared of the forest at night?
Lyria: Eh? Um, yeah. It's scary, but I'm OK with everyone around.
Katalina: Then, what's wrong? If you're anxious about something, don't hold back. Just tell me.
Lyria: Er… Well, you see…
Lyria gazed softly at Katalina before starting to speak, choosing her words carefully.
Lyria: If was just wondering if you would have been more free if it wasn't for me…
Katalina: …Hm? What do you mean by that?
Lyria: You see… I've been thinking about it all day.
Lyria: It's because of me that you're being chased by the Empire, right?
Katalina: That… That's not your…
Lyria: So if it wasn't for me, you wouldn't have to worry about them.
Lyria: And then you wouldn't have to act so strong and tough for my sake all the time.
Katalina: That's not true at all! Lyria, this is just how I've always been…
Katalina started to lean forward toward Lyria…
…But at that moment, the party were suddenly set upon from the side.
Imperial Soldier 1: Go after the girl! Ignore the others!
Vyrn: Wha-what! Where did these guys come from?
Katalina: An ambush! (Captain)! We must repel them!
Imperial Soldier 2: You're mine!
(Captain)'s crew prepared to confront the sudden raid.
Amid the confusion, however, Lyria was abducted.
Vyrn: Hey! Lyria's been kidnapped!
Katalina: Ugh! I know! But we can't do anything until we take care of these Imperial Soldiers!
Katalina: Let's go! (Captain)!
As a result of the sudden attack, Lyria was abducted from (Captain)'s crew.
Was the party able to get her back safely?
