Lady of the Flowers
The crew encounters Lennah, a woman with the power to create magical flowers, but cursed to never stop using her powers lest she be transformed into a plant. In hopes of someday finding the one who cursed her, Lennah accepts Lyria's invitation to join the crew.
The crew visits a town to get the Grandcypher serviced.
While Rackam and the others are away procuring parts, another group visits the market to stock up on food supplies.
???: Greetings. Would you like some flowers, dear?
Lyria: Wow! They look lovely!
Lyria: Can I buy some, (Captain)?
???: Oh my, what a lovely smile! You know what, dear? Here's a few on the house.
The woman tells the crew her name is Lennah, and that she travels the world, selling flowers wherever she goes.
After finishing her introductions, she produces a wreath of flowers from a basket.
Lennah: Here you go, dear. In return for showing me that wonderful smile of yours.
Lyria: Wow, look at all these flowers! I think I'll wear a few in my hair! How about you, Vyrn?
Vyrn: Um... I'll pass.
Lennah: Hahaha, how adorable! Seeing your smiling faces fills me with such joy.
As Lyria attempts to decorate her hair with the flowers, and angry roar erupts in the distance.
Vyrn: Hm? A fight? This early in the day?
Ruffian 1: Say that one more time! I dare you!
Ruffian 2: Don't mess with me, jerk!
Vyrn: This looks like it could get bad in a hurry! Let's stop 'em, (Captain)!
Vyrn: Time out, time out! No swinging weapons around in the middle of town!
Ruffian 1: You want a piece of this too?
Ruffian 2: Out of the way, lizardbreath!
Vyrn: Uh-oh, they're coming this way!
Before the ruffians have a chance to attack the crew, a powerful wind suddenly kicks up.
Countless flower petals dance through the air as if to chase the wind, forming a swirling vortex around the ruffians.
The ruffians stand stock-still in stunned silence.
Ruffian 1: What're these flowers?
Lennah: This won’t do—won't do at all. Why, you're scaring everyone in town.
Ruffian 2: Oh? Who the hell are you?
Lennah: Inside voices! You'll scare the children.
Lennah: "Make love, not war," as they say. Come on, gentlemen, I'm sure there's a civil way to settle all this.
Ruffian 2: Get off the pulpit, flower girl! If you mess with me, I'll just have to deal with you first!
Lennah: All that anger and frustration is only going to make you unhappy, you know? Just relaaax, why don't we?
Lennah: Surround yourself with flowers, put your mind at ease, and... Just watch. Heehee.
With a wave of her staff, Lennah fills her surroundings with flowers. No one can move.
Ruffian 1: What the hell's going on? Ngh... Can't... move...
Ruffian 2: Rghgrgh... Give me a break...
Lennah: Wonderful! Let's all shake hands and make up, shall we?
Ruffian 1: Stop talking nonsense!
Ruffian 2: Shake hands with these idiots? I think I'm gonna barf...
The ruffians can't help but voice their displeasure. (Captain) doesn't seem particularly happy about the situation either.
As Lennah places her hands on theirs, however, they suddenly find themselves unable to resist. Everyone is soon shaking hands happily.
Lennah: There we go. Everyone's friends again!
Vyrn: Ugh... I feel dirty...
Ruffian 1: N-no way I'm going along with this fakey friends stuff!
Ruffian 2: You won't get away with this next time!
Lennah: Aww, no need to be bashful... Heehee.
Vyrn: That sure was something with those flowers back there. That's not the kind of magic you see every day!
Lyria: That was amazing! There were so many of them! And all so pretty too!
Lennah: This? Just a little trick I learned when I was a girl.
Vyrn: You learned to do that when you were a kid? That's some serious talent!
Lennah: Heehee... Beautiful, aren't they? By the way... You're travelers, correct?
Vyrn: Not just travelers! Skyfarers!
(Captain) tells the mysterious flower vendor about the purpose of their journey.
(Captain) explains that they left their hometown on a journey to the Island of the Astrals, battling the powerful beings known as primal beasts along the way.
Lennah: My goodness. It sounds like quite an adventure.
Vyrn: Primal beasts are a piece of cake for me and (Captain)! Except for those times we almost died... Those don't count!
Lennah: You must be very brave! After all, you're fighting against primal beasts...
Vyrn: Hm? Something on your mind?
Lennah: Hehe! Well, it’s no big deal.
As she says this, Lennah rolls up her sleeves to reveal something to the crew.
Vyrn: Y-you've got something growing out of your arm...
Lyria: Oh my gosh. Is that a tree branch?
Lennah: Yes, that’s right. A most mysterious happening befell me when I was young.
Lennah: I was born on a desert island incapable of sustaining plant life. I had no idea that flowers even existed.
Lennah: But then I saw a painting of a flower garden in abook, and I was completely bewitched by its beauty.
Lennah: Those powerful feelings granted my younger self a mysterious power.
Vyrn: That's a pretty weird turn of events, right there. You just woke up one day and boom, flower power?
Lennah: Yes. Isn't it all so very romantic?
Lennah: Before I knew it, I was creating flowers indistinguishable from the real thing.
Lennah: I used those powers to turn my desert island into a flower garden.
Lennah: My desolate world was transformed into a place of dreams.
Lyria: Wow, just like a fairy tale!
Lennah: Anyway, after this mysterious happening occurred...
Lennah: An equally mysterious person appeared before me. I couldn't even tell if they were a man or a woman.
Lennah: They gave me a piece of fruit and told me that I would be able to make even more beautiful flowers blossom if I ate it.
Vyrn: That sounds more than a little suspicious...
Lennah: Oh my! Thinking back on it now, it certainly does seem dubious!
Lennah: The fruit delivered as promised, but not without a price.
Lennah: If I don’t continue creating flowers, my body itself will turn into a plant.
Vyrn: That’s messed up! Sounds like some kinda curse to me!
Lennah: Heehee, yes indeed... I won't be able to move once I turn into a plant. Quite the problem!
Vyrn: You seem awfully at ease about this whole thing.
Lennah: That's why I'm searching for the person who gave me that fruit in the first place. Maybe there's a way to stop the transformation!
Lennah: I don't clearly remember what they looked like...
Lennah: Maybe they weren't a person at all. Maybe it was a monster... or some kind of demon?
Lyria: You don't think it was a primal beast, do you?
Vyrn: Hmm... Whatever the case, it seems like one might be involved here.
Lennah: Oh my... I’m so sorry. We only just met, and here I am going on and on about my personal problems.
Vyrn: Hm? Something up, (Captain)?
Lennah: This certain someone I'm searching for may not be a primal beast, but if you're willing to help...
Lyria: I approve! Let's look for them together, Lennah!
Lyria: Even if the person you're looking for isn't a primal beast...
Lyria: If we visit lots of places and talk to lots of people, we might just find some clues on how to cure you!
Lennah: Oh my! Why are you offering so much help to a stranger like me?
Vyrn: Heheh, it’s one of (Captain)'s bad habits!
Lyria: Vyrn! It’s not a bad habit! It's good!
Lyria: (Captain) never ignores a person in need, and that's just the best! Right, (Captain)?
Vyrn: Yeah, you're right.
Lyria: I approve! Let's look for them together, Lennah!
Lyria: We run into all sorts of mysterious things besides primal beasts, so I'm sure we'll run into this person you're looking for eventually!
Vyrn: Whoa, Lyria! You're even more enthusiastic than usual! You like this flower girl that much?
Lyria: I love the flowers she makes!
Lennah: I'm very happy to hear that. I've never been so warmly welcomed before, to be honest...
Lennah: I suppose I'll take you up on your kind offer.
Lyria: Yay! I actually do have one request for you, Lennah...
Lennah: Oh my. And what could that be?
Vyrn: Hold on now. Don't give the flower girl too much trouble, Lyria.
Lyria: Could you make our airship super pretty with your flowers?
Lennah: Heehee... I'd be delighted to. Very well. Let's go.
Lennah: Today is a good day. I've found a little piece of happiness here.
Lennah responded to Lyria’s whimsical with a wink and heads for the Grandcypher. Once there, she waves her staff in front of the ship.
When Rackam returns from his shopping trip to see his airship covered in a mountain of flowers, the shock sends him to his knees.
