Lyria: The guardian...
Vyrn: She's gone?
Visitor 1: Yes. And we don't know where she went. That's what's causing all this commotion.
Visitor 2: She's always been one to disappear without a word, but this time no one can figure out where she went.
Visitor 1: Well, she is the Queen of the Roosters... Maybe she's out flying around the sky.
Visitor 2: She does indeed have strange and mysterious powers. But that's what I came here hoping to see.
Visitor 2: We'll just have to come back another day. Be careful on your way home!
Lyria: Oh... What do we do now?
Vyrn: More importantly, why is that girl always gone? Sounds like we came all this way for nothin'.
Lyria: Ahaha... But they said she was here early this morning.
Vyrn: Oh well. We'll just have to stop by again some other time. Let's head back to the ship!
Lyria: Can we go through that forest on the way back? I really want to walk through there!
Vyrn: That one with the temple path? That did look nice! Come on, (Captain). Let's head that way!
Lyria: Doodley-dooo!
Vyrn: You're really gettin' into this walk, Lyria. You're practically makin' circles around us!
Lyria: Hehe! I just like crunching all the leaves. Crunch, crunch, crunch.
Vyrn: Haha. I always thought it was more of a crinch sound.
Lyria: It's a crunch! Okay, listen closely now...
Lyria: One, two, thr—
Lyria: Ah! See? That was a crunch!
Vyrn: That wasn't a leaf! That sounded like an explosion on the other side of the forest!
Smoke begins to billow up in the distance. At its source is a heap of broken machinery with a girl stuck underneath.
???: Not again...
???: How am I supposed to stabilize this thing? Is something wrong with the wing-to-power ratio?
???: Sigh. The sky looks so far away now.
Lyria: Oh no! Is there a girl caught under that machine?
Vyrn: Yikes! We gotta get her outta there before she gets crushed!
???: Hmm. I'd better run my equations again. I guess I could draw them up on the ground...
???: Cock-a-doodle-dum. Wing-a-doodle-fly.
Upon reciting these words, the machine begins to levitate in the air. The equations inscribed on the ground soon float off like clouds dissipating in the sky.
In the spot where the equations once were, a massive formula begins to emerge.
Lyria: Huh? It's up and running again!
Vyrn: What the... I've never seen magic like that before! Hey! Are you all right over there?
???: Yes, yes. My calculations were right on target.
Lyria: Umm... We're a crew of skyfarers on an adventure. If you're having some trouble, we could...
???: So that was the problem. I just had to eliminate some of the static variables from earlier.
The girl proceeds to sit down and draw up some new equations.
Vyrn: She sure is in her own little world. I can't believe she's the one that caused that explosion...
???: Oh, sorry about that. I was just tweaking one of my machines. It's a little hobby I have.
Lyria: Is that right? What about that mysterious power we saw you use?
???: We call it floatification. It lets us make otherwise inanimate objects take flight.
Vyrn: You can make stuff fly? Are you from the Rooster Temple?
???: You could say I'm the Queen of the Roosters.
Vyrn: Oh, okay...
Hey, wait a sec!
Vyrn: You're the queen?
Mahira: Uh, yeah. I'm Mahira. Pleasure to greet you.
Lyria: Greet? Umm, the pleasure's all ours!
Vyrn: So what's the deal with that machine? There's been trouble up at the temple, ya know.
Mahira: Trouble?
Lyria: Since you haven't been around, the visitors have been getting really backed up.
Mahira: Visitors?
Mahira: ...
Mahira: Ah, right. I guess it is the start of the new year.
Vyrn: What! You mean you forgot?
Mahira: A rookie mistake, I know. I guess I'd better hurry back...
Lyria: Wait, Mahira! We'll go with you!
Vyrn: All right, (Captain)! Put the pedal to the metal!
Vyrn: Huh? Wait, why are we running? We should just have Mahira float us there.
Mahira and the crew soon arrive back at the Rooster Temple. Seeing that the queen has returned, the visitors breathe a sigh of relief, alleviating the tension that had filled the air.
Mahira: Thank you. With your help I was able to return here and fulfill my role as guardian.
Mahira: You'll have to come by and see me again sometime. Who... are you again?
Lyria: Ahahah... We're a skyfaring crew!
Mahira: Oh, right. You mentioned that earlier, didn't you? Sorry, my memory's just so fuzzy, I—
Mahira: Wait, you're a crew?
Vyrn: Yeah, that's what we've been tryin' to tell ya! Why? You got something for us?
Mahira: Uh, yeah. There is a matter I would like to discuss with you...
Mahira: I'll explain more later. Wait by the docks and I'll meet with you after I see to these visitors.
Night falls, and Mahira finally stops by the Grandcypher.

After she comes aboard, Mahira explains about herself and her role in the sky.
People come to the temples to pray for health, peace, and prosperity over the coming year.
However, the temples were actually built after the War to watch over both the Sky Realm and the Astral Realm.
The temples at the twelve cardinal points are governed by the Twelve Divine Generals, each taking turns as guardian from year to year.
This year is the year of the Rooster Temple, making Mahira the guardian.
After finishing her explanation, she makes her request to the crew and asks for a tour of the ship.

Vyrn: Haha! This is the part of the ship that cuts through the wind! And look! You can see your temple from here!
Mahira: ...
Vyrn: Hey, why are you starin' at the wings like that?
Mahira: The ratio of main wing to rear wing size... It's beautiful.
Lyria: Y-you think so? You really love machines, don't you?
Mahira: I've studied all kinds of airships, but this one has particularly exquisite form and balance.
Mahira: That must be nice. I wish I could fly through the sky too...
Vyrn: Huh? You can, can't you, Bird Girl?
Mahira: Uh...
Mahira: Well, you'd think so, wouldn't you?
Mahira: I'm from the Rooster Temple after all... And I've got all kinds of powers...
Lyria: Um... Is something wrong, Mahira?
Mahira: But I can't do it. I can't make myself fly.
The crew gives Mahira a strange look, and she goes on to bashfully explain the real problem.
Mahira: When most people hear my backstory, they tend to assume I can fly.
Mahira: But it's simply not possible. And when I tell people that, they can hardly believe it.
Mahira: I feel like I've had this conversation a million times...
Vyrn: Oh... Sounds like it's been a sore spot for you your whole life. Sorry for bringin' it up.
Mahira: That's okay. Most people wouldn't give it a second thought.
Lyria: So then that thing you were building in the woods... Was that a ship?
Mahira: That's right. I was building a miniature airship just for me.
Vyrn: Whoa! A miniature airship?
Lyria: That's amazing! You really are one of the Twelve Divine Generals!
Mahira: No, it's only amounted to a series of failures. I'm still too much of an amateur.
Mahira: But maybe I could use this ship as a reference...
Mahira: You're all trying to go to the island of the Astrals, right?
Vyrn: Yeah! But we're goin' to all kinds of other places too!
Mahira: Is that so? Well, then... if I might make another request...
Mahira: Could I... disassemble the Grandcypher?
  1. You're very welcome to!
  2. Are you nuts?

Choose: You're very welcome to!
Mahira: Really? Oh, thank you!
Lyria: Yay! Mahira's coming with us and—
Vyrn: Wait, wait, wait! Did you even hear what she said? She wants to take apart the ship!
Mahira: So is that a no?
Go to "Continue 5"

Choose: Are you nuts?
Mahira: Well... I would only disassemble it a little bit...

Lyria: Ah... Hahaha... Sorry, Mahira. That's, uh...
Vyrn: That's not something you just up and ask someone...
Vyrn: If you want to know more about our ship, then maybe you should come along with us!
Mahira: Why didn't I think of that? That's a much better idea. Let's do that.
Lyria: You can ask Rackam and the rest of the crew everything you want to know!
Mahira: Hehe. Splendid. I haven't been able to talk with anyone about flight technology or aerodynamics before.
Vyrn: Whew. Bird Girl is definitely smart, but she's definitely also... kinda weird.
Having overcome her worries about never being able to fly, Mahira takes her dream of building a miniature airship and boards the Grandcypher.
She joins the crew on their journey forward. Though she might perplex them at times, her passion will surely push them farther than ever into the deep blue sky.
