I Will Protect You!
The crew revisits memories of their time on Port Breeze and Valtz Duchy when Lyria realizes that she is always the one being protected. She vows to protect (Captain) by fighting on the front lines just as the other crew members do.
The Grandcypher rides the winds, tearing through the clouds as it presses on.
(Captain) and company revel in the refreshing breeze, reminiscing about their many adventures.
Lyria: This feels so good. It reminds me of our time on Port Breeze.
Vyrn: Hehe, that takes me back. We beat Tiamat thanks to Rackam's heroics.
Lyria: Yeah! Rackam was so cool!
Rackam: Geez, do we gotta bring that up again? Give it a rest already. It's embarrassing.
Tiamat: My... winds...
Rackam: There are things I want to protect... that I have to protect. So I'm not backing down anymore.
Rackam: I'm not gonna run, and I'm not gonna hide. Neither of us can afford to compromise, can we?
Rackam: So we're gonna have to butt heads... with everything we've got.
Rackam: Let's do this fair and square! I don't know if you're a god or a primal beast or what, but I don't care. No holding back!
Rackam: Argh, I said quit it! Damn, I'm all sweaty now...
Lyria: But we couldn't have made it this far without you at the helm.
Lyria: Because... um... Katalina's flying is a little scary...
Katalina: Ngh... It's not like we had many options at the time.
Vyrn: Hah! Crashing and landing are two completely different things.
Katalina: Not you too, Vyrn...
They all burst out in laughter. Katalina, feeling slightly chagrined, quickly fast-talks her way onto the next topic.
Katalina: Speaking of which, that reminds me of something Io did.
Io: Huh, huh, huh? Why are we talking about me all of a sudden?
Lyria: You wouldn't leave us alone at Valtz Duchy if I remember correctly.
Io: N-no, I just... wanted to find a clue about Master. That's all.
Vyrn: Nah, you were pretty cool too. Your determination put Rackam's to shame.
Tzaka the Great: This is all I've ever wanted. My kinsmen died, full of regret, and this was their dream.
Io: Then... it's a nightmare. And I'll crush it!
Io: Today I will surpass you! I'll crush the nightmare that ties you to this place.
Io: And then... I'll release you from the tragedies of the past!
Io: Aaah! C'mon, that's so embarrassing!
Vyrn: Hehe, what're you talkin' about? You're the one that stopped Colossus.
Lyria: Mm-hm. Everyone's really awesome.
Lyria: Katalina, Eugen, Rosetta... Everyone came to (Captain)'s aid.
Lyria: Hmm, (Captain)'s aid...
Lyria's own words suddenly give her pause.
Contrary to her jovial laughter earlier, Lyria now looks at the ground in despondence.
Vyrn: What's up, Lyria? Something on your mind?
Lyria: Listening to everyone's stories gives me a strange feeling.
Katalina: What do you mean by strange?
Lyria: It's like there's a fluttering sensation in my chest. I don't think it's bad, but it's a little hard to handle.
Lyria: I couldn't understand it at first, but I think I get it now.
Lyria: It means I want to help (Captain) too.
Io: Huh? You want to be helpful?
Rackam: Now see here, Lyria. You've always been a great help.
Vyrn: That's no joke. I mean, you've got the power to summon primal beasts and\u2014
Lyria: That's not what I mean! I want to fight alongside (Captain) just like Rackam and Io do!
Vyrn: What? Like kicking and punching?
Katalina: Wait, Lyria. It's not necessary to put yourself in danger like that.
Lyria: I'm the only one who's always being protected. I haven't been able to do anything for (Captain) at all.
Lyria: That's why I want to protect (Captain) just like everyone else does!
Katalina: Well, we know what Lyria thinks about this, but what about you, (Captain)?
Vyrn: You can't be seriously thinking about letting her do something that dangerous!
Lyria: Teehee, thanks for agreeing with me. Watch me do my best out there!
Vyrn: See? Even (Captain) says so. Just let it go.
Lyria: No, I won't give up. I've made up my mind to help (Captain) and that's final!
Rackam: Yeesh, we just gonna let her do this?
Katalina: Sigh... Given the circumstances, all we can do is let her be.
Io: Hmm... I guess we'll just have to do our best to protect her then!
The contrast couldn't be any more different. Lyria is full of enthusiasm while most of the crew is apprehensive.
