Happy Birthday Cutscenes
# Link Text

In order to commemorate this momentous occasion, I shall grant you the protection of my primordial flame.
Your birth is truly a blessing upon this world, (Captain).
Not even the will of the gods can deny your existence.
No matter the hardships that may befall you, I would counsel that you consider them trials to strengthen your soul, and that you always live your life to the fullest.


Adherent, we face the wondrous occasion of your birthday once more.
The fate that binds you imposes countless trials and tribulations, impeding you every step of the way.
Consider it a guiding light that will lead you to a brighter future.
As such, there is nothing to fear. Follow your heart and tread the path that you believe in.
For I am here to purge all impurities that latch onto your soul with me apocalyptic fire.


A birthday is a reminder of the wondrous life we have been given in this world.
Though you have been given a path to walk, it is laden with many hardships.
But that applies equally for all children of man.
Whether you can overcome those hardships depends on what lies in your heart—never forget that.
And never let fear of hardship overtake you, my adherent. For there is always a path forward.
As long as your prayer remains true, I will guide your soul every step of the way.
After all, there exists no obstacle that cannot be overcome.


The date of your birth has arrived once again, my adherent.
The life given to the children of man seems so short and fleeting in my eyes.
Unfortunately, not all are able to live out the full extent of their life spans.
The children of man are weak... frail. And the world can be harsh.
That is why I am most pleased to see you in good spirits after the passing of another year.
Do not take this for granted, (Captain), and may your days ahead be just as meaningful.

Happy New Year Cutscenes
# Link Text

My passionate adherents have given me an offering of spirits. I would be pleased to share some with you.
Only in adulthood can one partake, you say?
Gwahaha... You needn't worry. This is suitable even for the mouths of babies.
Is it not delectable?


Pin the tail on the donkey? Why would I even consider doing such a thing?
I must shut off my sense of sight and determine the optimal position for a donkey's tail to be attached, you say? What a curious game that the children of man come up with.
Perhaps you can show me more explicitly how this donkey business goes, my adherent.
Surely it can't be too difficult to entertain me a bit.
Hahaha... Who shall be first to pin the tail?


Gaze upon the horizon, my dear adherent. The sun rises.
Refreshing, is it not? To be faced with the dawn of a new year and bid farewell to the old.
The passage of time is swift, especially for the short lives of the children of man.
I ask you this, Adherent. With the time that you have, what do you wish to accomplish?
Hm... An answer eludes you. But the search for one is perhaps another facet of mortal life.
Thoroughly consider yours. Wherever it will lead you... I am very curious to observe.


My adherent, what is in the envelope?
Ah, so that is the New Year's money I often hear about.
The children of man celebrate the young on New Year's by way of monetary gift.
Tell me, my adherent. Are you not a child yourself?
Oh? As captain, you are obligated to be on the side of the giving, I see.
As I am not bound by such rules, allow me to offer you a gift.
It is a celebratory snack called barfi, an offering from other devout adherents.
Even as a captain, a child is still a child. There is no need to hesitate: the barfi is yours.

Valentine's Day Cutscenes
# Link Text

My adherent, worship the lingam and your heart's desire shall be realized.
I have manifested as you wished. What then would you have from me, child of man?
Have you brought some sort of tribute to me?
What? Valentine's? You must explain in detail.
I see... So that is the meaning of the festival.
Valentine's Day began when devoted adherents offered sweet morsels in heaps.
Not only has this long enduring mystery been resolved, but I have learned a new joy. Allow me to thank you, child of man.
Together with Nagaraja, I shall delight in the sweet flavors you have profered unto me.


My adherent, I have manifested in response to your worship of the Iingam.
Ah, yes, today is Valentine's.
It is a kind offering you proffer me with.
Child of man, your face tells me there were many hardships involved.
You failed to grasp the ideal level of sweetness, you say?
Haha... There is no need to take it so hard.
I can feel your devout wishes from this offering.
As my power stems from the prayer of the children of man, I could not ask for a finer tribute from you.
I thank you, child of man.


Oh, is it Valentine's already?
It's fortunate that you've arrived at this day without incident and in good health.
The prayer in your offering speaks out to me.
You have my thanks, my adherent.
This offering is a reflection of your heart. Your earnest prayer shall be a source of strength for me in the days to come.


My adherent, I have manifested in response to your prayer.
Oh, a Valentine's tribute? What a peculiar appearance it takes on.
Ah. You used too intense of a flame in your excitement, I see.
Fortunately the appearance matters little to me.
Nor do I perceive the minor blunder resulting from your devout enthusiasm to be a bad thing.
Nonetheless, I would suggest caution in the future. For the children of man tend to burn easily even at the smallest spark.

White Day Cutscenes
# Link Text

My adherent, I give these to you as a symbol of gratitude. Please take them.
What? White Day?
What is the meaning of that phrase? You must explain in detail.
I see. White Day is the day on which one expresses thanks for Valentine's Day.
The culture of the children of man is filled with mysteries.
Gwaha, and for that reason it is ever fascinating.
I will interpret this as your White Day tribute to me.


My adherent, I come bearing a gift.
A rudraksha seed imbued with my power of protection. It will make for a most splendid lucky charm.
Hm? You find it to be too much as mere thanks for Valentine's?
As I said before, my power stems from the prayer of people.
Your tribute to me permeated with your prayer and venerable wishes.
Thus I firmly believe that my gift to you is of equal value. Won't you accept it?
Splendid. I look forward to your continued prayer, adherent.


It pleases me to see you in good health, my adherent.
Why do you look surprised? Is today not White Day?
Ah, you were so caught up in the daily grind that you forgot, I see.
I permit you to play with Nagaraja.
The serpent himself wishes to frolic with you.
There is no need to hesitate. Take this chance to refresh yourself.


My adherent, I've come to repay you for your tribute last month.
I see signs of affliction clouding your body. Perhaps you are affected by the changing of seasons, a time when the children of man easily get sick.
Allow me to try something.
My apocalyptic fire shall purge you of any afflictions. You will feel like a new person come morning.
I shall watch over you until then. Rest easy, my adherent.

Trick or Treat Cutscenes
# Link Text

My adherent, tonight is the banquet of All Hallow's Eve.
Standing beside the children of man and watching over them, I am familiar with every feast.
Perhaps I will transform into a vetala and wander through carrying a paper lantern in my claws.
Gwahaha... This banquet is as peculiar as it is pleasant.
Let us enjoy the night to the fullest.


All Hallows' Eve has come upon us once again.
I have a favor to ask, adherent. Would you be so kind as to enlighten me on the meaning of this incantation known as "trick or treat"?
Ah... So I see the children of man recite those words in order to indulge their sweet tooth.
And if the desire is not sated with a gift of candy, a trick must ensue in the name of fairness.
The children of man come up with truly strange customs.
The more I know, the more my interest in the mortal world rises.


Adherent, what an unconventional manner of dress.
Beast ears and tail... A costume for All Hallows' Eve, I see.
You require it to procure treats? Hm, a most fascinatingly strange occasion this is.
Well, in that case, I offer you this. It is a treat called modak.
You are most deserving of it, my devout adherent. There is no need to be modest.

Happy Holidays Cutscenes
# Link Text

Can you hear them too, my adherent?
The cheerful voices of the children of men are sounding throughout the land.
This eve is a beautiful one.


My adherent, why is it that you look so morose on such a beautiful night?
You're worried about whether you will receive presents this year?
Well then, I have a present for you. To confer blessings upon my followers is another one of my duties.
May you accept it in good faith.


Glittering snowflakes fill the sky...
Against the multitude of lights hung about, the town appears to sparkle brighter than before.
A fleeting combination of mortal-made and natural beauty.
Truly a sight to behold. Wouldn't you agree, Adherent?


My adherent, I come with a gift.
A diya lit by my divine fire.
The diya's fire is inextinguishable and wards off evil.
May you spend the holy night with my blessing. A fulfilling occasion it shall be.
As bringing peace to the children of man is one of my duties, seeing them revel in holiday joy is a true delight.
As long as my flame burns bright, I will allow nothing to disturb your peace on this very special night.

Destruction Incarnate

(Captain) dreams about a boy asking for help and then locates his plague-stricken village in real life. There the crew have an unexpected reunion with Shiva, a primal beast whom they once met in a temple on Kluger Island. Shiva demands to know what the crew is doing in the village.

Villager 1: Aaugh... Groooan...
Villager 2: Huff... Huff...
Torrential rains assault this borderland village again today. The putrid air is saturated with a stomach-turning odor.
A sacred tree stands in the center of the village. All around it are villagers lying on thin linen mats.
Villager 3: Aah... Moaaan...
Sores blotch their skin, their voices crackle hoarsely, and every little twitch of their bodies appears to be a struggle.
Villager 4: Aah... Dear Holy One... Save us!
Villager 4: Aah... aah...
Villager 4: Anyone...
Villager 4: Please save...
???: ...
Villager 4: ...!
Shiva: My name is Shiva, he who grants salvation.
The sudden appearance of this sublime being leaves the villagers breathless.
Shiva turns his eyes on the sacred tree at the village center.
Shiva: A plague...
Its bark is peeling off, and a discolored trunk reaches out from within.
The tree has become a nest of disease that scatters deadly spores across the village.
Shiva: ...
Shiva steps close to the tree and holds out a palm to produce apocalyptic fire. The tree begins to crackle and is consumed by fire.
Villager 4: ...!
The villagers—still lying on the ground—are powerless to do anything but watch the flames rise.
Shiva: You who make such powerful entreaties... I grant what you have wished.
Villager 2: Groan...
Villager 3: Huff... Groan...
The villagers weep upon hearing Shiva's words, and the divinity closes his eyes as if listening to their pleas.
Shiva: ...
The decay of the villagers' bodies prevents them from either speaking or moving effectively.
What was once the sacred tree turns to ash and falls in on itself.
Villager 1: Moaaan... Mooaaan...
A moment later, the flame of life goes out within the villagers as it was extinguished in the trees.
Shiva: ...
After meditating deeply, Shiva arrives at a conclusion.
Shiva: It is done.
Shiva: My apocalyptic fire shall return all to nothingness.
(Captain) is slumbering deeply in the captain's quarters of the Grandcypher as it sails the night sky.
Village Boy: Sky... fa... ers...
Village Boy: Huff... Huff... Can you hear me?
Before (Captain)'s eyes is a boy lying in a village that is shrouded by dark, stale air.
Village Boy: Wheeze... My body's hot... And my mind's... fuzzy...
(Captain) attempts to reach out, but the boy is too distant.
Village Boy: I made a... promise...
Village Boy: To look after Mama till Papa comes back...
The boy attempts to push through his shortness of breath to offer a desperate prayer to the sky.
Village Boy: Please... Sky... rers...
Village Boy: You gotta... help... us...
Waking from the dream, (Captain) looks around and realizes the boy is nowhere to be found.
The captain breaks into a cold sweat upon remembering the suffering child.
Village Boy: Please... Sky... rers...
Village Boy: You gotta... help us...
(Captain) rushes to the ship's bridge.
Lyria: Is this... the place you saw in your dream, (Captain)?
The crew uses details from the captain's dream to locate the village.
The sights they see are the same as those from the dream.
Vyrn: Who'da thought this place was real? Maybe you're psychic or somethin'!
Lyria: There has to be a reason that (Captain) had that dream.
Lyria: That boy has to be somewhere in the village. Let's find him as quickly as we can!
Vyrn: Yeah, you said it!
(Captain) stops Vyrn and Lyria the moment they begin walking.
Lyria: What's wrong?
Vyrn: Huh?
In the direction (Captain) points there is a dark, invisible specter.
Vyrn: Whoa... What's that!
Lyria: Huh! Here of all places?
The putrid air and stomach-turning scent hang heavy over the land as if serving to turn back every living creature.
Vyrn: What the heck happened in this village? There's no way we're getting in there with things like this!
Lyria: Eeek!
Vyrn: Huh! What now?
At the startling sight of apocalyptic fire, (Captain) turns away from Vyrn and Lyria and unsheathes a sword.
Lyria: This feels like...
Vyrn: A primal beast!
As the fire settles and the party's line of sight becomes clear, a seemingly familiar figure comes into focus.
Shiva: ...
  1. You're—

Choose: You're—
Shiva: It has been a long while, child of man.
White Serpent: Squeak, squeak...
Lyria: Huh? Do you know who that is, (Captain)?
Vyrn: Never seen that face before...
While the being caresses a white snake, he fixes his eyes toward Vyrn and Lyria.
Shiva: Girl in blue, Lyria; and red dragon, Vyrn.
Vyrn: You mean you know us?
Shiva: Naturally. I command all that is.
Shiva: My name is Shiva, he who grants salvation.
Lyria: So your name's Shiva... How do you do?
White Serpent: Ssh...
Shiva: This is Nagaraja, my beloved serpent king.
Vyrn: Serpent king?
White Serpent: Hissss!
Vyrn: Whoa! You tryin' to tussle?
Lyria: D-don't worry, Vyrn.
Lyria: Nagaraja is his name, right? Hello, my name is Lyria.
Vyrn: Yeah, well... Looks like (Captain) met this guy somewhere. So what's going on?
(Captain) talks to Vyrn and Lyria about encountering Shiva in a temple on Kluger Island.
One night in a dream, the captain crossed swords with Shiva in order to pass one of his trials.
Lyria: I never knew that happened!
Vyrn: And we were sleeping? What a weird story...
The party members are unsure of how to respond to the unexpected reunion with an unexpected adversary.
Shiva, who had been waiting leisurely, opens his mouth once more.
Shiva: Indeed, child of man.
Shiva: (Captain), what is your intent in bringing those two to this land?
Shiva: It is no longer suited for living beings.
Shiva's gaze seems to penetrate their souls.
(Captain) is paralyzed, unable to move under the weight of the ineffable stare.

Light of Destruction

(Captain) and the others explain that they came to help the villagers, but Shiva responds that those who have already fallen ill can't be saved. (Captain), however, insists on saving the boy, after which Shiva assumes a battle stance and demands to see strength worthy of altering fate.

(Captain) states that the crew came to this village to save the boy from the dream.
Shiva: The dream...
Lyria: It seemed like he was begging us for help.
Lyria: We have to find a way to do something...
Shiva: You have traveled a great distance to this land for something so fleeting as a dream...
Lyria: It's just that...
Shiva: Your senses are indeed sharp.
Vyrn: So you mean—
Shiva: Yes. He is here. Many children of man are suffering from disease.
Shiva: What then are you able to do?
Lyria: Huh?
Shiva: This yoke of pestilence weighs heavy on this land, and the great tree at the village's center has become a nest of deadly spores.
Shiva: Their poison has tainted every corner of the village, and any living being who enters is sure to be consumed by plague.
Lyria: But... How can we help...
Shiva: The spores of decay have already made their way into the brains of the children of this land.
Shiva: There can be no recovery for them.
Lyria: ...!
Vyrn: Yeah, well then... what are you doing here?
Vyrn: You mean you didn't come to save anyone?
Shiva: One thing alone can save those people:
Shiva: To be burned through by apocalyptic fire.
Vyrn: Wha—
Lyria: That's—
Shiva: The spores borne of this land have already infected neighboring villages.
Shiva: This village must be destroyed lest all the sky be filled with deadly spores.
Lyria: But... We can't allow that!
Vyrn: That's right! How is that supposed to save anyone!
Shiva: When they shed their current incarnations, their souls will be born again.
Shiva: They will not suffer needlessly.
Vyrn: Maybe, but still...
Shiva: Do you wish to draw out the pain of those halfdead unfortunates, forcing them to abide in a hell on earth?
Lyria: ...
Shiva: The time has come for this land's children of men to let go of their living incarnations.
Shiva: I manifested in this land in response to the pleas of the village denizens.
Shiva: I shall break to pieces the unfortunate fate of the children of man, whereupon a new destiny will be born to them. That is the mission I have been given.
Shiva: Your interference will therefore be futile.
The decay of the village has yet to stop. All living creatures within the dying settlement can do no more than await their annihilation.
The village is past salvation, and (Captain) can only clench both fists in frustration.
Vyrn: (Captain)... Are you okay?
Village Boy: Please... Sky... rers...
Village Boy: You gotta... help... us...
Lyria: (Captain)?
The following moment, (Captain) chants a spell of protection and runs into the shroud of putrid air.
Lyria: Eek! What are you doing, (Captain)!
Vyrn: Hey, (Captain)! Cut it out!
But in that instant, a wave of apocalyptic fire obstructs (Captain)'s path.
Shiva: You underwit.
Nagaraja: Squeak, squeak...
(Captain) does not shrink when confronted with the flames; the desire to save those suffering is clearly visible in the captain's eyes.
Shiva: ...
Shiva: It would seem that to be foolishly rocked by fleeting passions is the portion of man...
Shiva: Singularity... You, child of man, are the factor that controls the skies' trajectory.
Shiva: If you wish to alter the fate of this village, show me that you have such power.
Shiva assumes a battle stance.
Vyrn: Huh! Uh-oh, (Captain), get ready!
Lyria: We'll do this!
Shiva: The weak are forbidden to advance any further.
Nagaraja: Hisss!

Light of Destruction: Scene 2

After the battle, Shiva asks what the crew stand to gain by wagering their lives, and Lyria answers that they can't abandon people who are savable. As if rewarding the party for the reply, Shiva gives them the protective power of apocalyptic fire. The party members then step into the village filled with putrid air.

Shiva: ...
Shiva: Your wish to save that child is truly great.
Shiva: What do you stand to gain for wagering your life?
Lyria: It's not about that... There are people right before our eyes who we might be able to help.
Lyria: We can't just abandon them!
Shiva: ...
Vyrn: Maybe if you're alone, you can't do anything. But we're not—we've got friends!
Vyrn: Stuff that's impossible by yourself is a piece of cake when everyone joins together!
Shiva: What frivolity...
Vyrn: The villagers are still alive, aren't they?
Lyria: Then there has to be some way to help them!
Shiva: ...
At that moment, Shiva's forehead begins to glow faintly.
Shiva: You are entertaining.
Shiva holds out a palm and sends a wave of flame crashing over the party.
Lyria: Eek!
Vyrn: Whoa, what's happening!
Lyria: W-what! It isn't hot!
Vyrn: What's going on here!
Shiva: I shall grant to you the protection of my apocalyptic fire.
Shiva: Move no more than you must. And take care not to inhale the deadly spores.
Shiva: Burn into your eyes all that you are about to see and hear.
Following behind Shiva, the party sets foot into the village shrouded with putrid air.

Light of Destruction: Scene 3

Wrapped in Shiva's protective fire, (Captain)'s crew enters the village and finds the boy from the dream. (Captain) senses a kindred spirit when the boy says he wants the crew to pass on a message to his skyfarer father. As if set off by (Captain)'s wish to assist the boy, Shiva's third eye begins shining, and the surroundings are filled with blinding light.

Clad in Shiva's flames, the party steps forth into the town.
The spectacle there is more grim than any of the members had imagined.
Villager 1: Aah... Moaaaan...
Villager 2: Wheeze... wheeze...
Villager 3: ...
Lyria: ...!
Under the putrid air the people lie scattered across the ground.
Sores mark their skin, their bodies are decaying, and not one of them seems able to move at will.
Villager 1: This pain... It's too much...
Villager 2: Please... Just end it...
Villager 3: Dear gods...
The plague-stricken villagers no longer hope to be rescued, only to have a peaceful death that releases them from suffering.
Vyrn: ...!
This shocks (Captain) and the others.
???: Sky... f-farers?
The captain looks up toward the familiar voice and sees among them the boy in the dream.
Village Boy: My... prayers... reached you....
The boy runs toward (Captain) and the others.
Lyria: You don't need to stand up! Don't push yourself too hard!
Village Boy: I wanted... to meet you... skyfarers...
Vyrn: You wanted to meet skyfarers? What do you mean!
Village Boy: My papa was... a skyfarer and... he went to an island far away... That's the last I saw him...
Village Boy: But if I meet some skyfarers... I can see my papa... The sky's all connected...
Lyria: ...
Village Boy: I can't meet Papa now... But tell him...
Village Boy: Sorry I wasn't... at home...
Village Boy: Good luck... your journey in... sky...
Lyria: ...
As the boy's consciousness fades, the look on his face becomes blank, and he struggles to cobble together words.
Listening to him speak, (Captain) can't help but identify with the story of the boy's early childhood.
(Captain) grabs his hand and says a prayer, struggling to control the sorrow and the tears.
  1. You can't give up.

Choose: You can't give up.
Village Boy: Huh?
"If there are gods in this world—if we have the power to alter our own fates—may this wish be granted," wishes the captain.
A desire to help the boy races through (Captain).
Lyria: Please! Please save him!
Vyrn: Destiny schmestiny! If you give up, that's it!
  1. I'll show him your fate is to live!

Choose: I'll show him your fate is to live!
Shiva: ...
(Captain)'s resolute prayer gives birth to a miracle.
Shiva: ...
That moment, light envelops the surroundings.

Light of Destruction: Scene 4

The light from Shiva's third eye wipes the illness from the village and saves the lives of those within. Shiva tells the crew that this was possible because of the forceful prayers of (Captain) and the others. Aware that their power is his power, Shiva takes the crew as his newest adherents, giving them a protective statuette and the power of fire.

Shiva: ...
Blinding light pours from the third eye on Shiva's forehead into every shadow of the village covered in putrid air.
Villager 4: Groaaan...
Villager 3: Aaah....
Villager 2: Huh?
Villager 1: Our bodies...
The putrid air dissipates from the once decaying village, and each of the afflicted souls recovers their energy.
Vyrn: What is it? What's going on here!
Lyria: Is this...
The people's halfdead bodies come alive again, and a luxuriant green covers the forest once more.
Villager 2: Are we... better now?
Villager 1: I-It's a miracle!
Village Boy: I get... to live too?
Village Boy: Waaah! Mama!
The village bursts into lively jubilations. Though the people seem baffled that this is reality, they tremble with joy to have their lives.
Village Boy: Skyfarers, where are you!
Shiva: We must go.
Lyria: Huh?
Vyrn: Hm?
The following moment, the cloak of flame that (Captain) and the others had worn grows into a great conflagration.
When the flames die down, (Captain) and the others find themselves somewhere very different from the village.
Lyria: Whoa! We were in the village just a second ago, weren't we? That boy was searching for us...
Vyrn: Hold up. I haven't been following things for a while now!
Shiva: The flames have transported us to another space.
Vyrn: Transported us to another space? Is that even possible!
Lyria: That boy was trying to find us. But we didn't have a chance to talk with him...
Shiva: The villagers are on the proper path once again. Henceforth they must advance with their power alone.
Shiva: Or do you wish to remain in that land and be hailed as a savior?
Vyrn: Then you mean that the people in the village are better?
Shiva: So it seems.
Vyrn: So it seems? Weren't you the one doing everything?
Shiva: My light of destruction returned to nothingness the grave darkness that pervaded the land.
Shiva: It was all on account of your potent prayer, Singularity.
Lyria: Mm...
Shiva: The salvation I could offer those people was to return them to nothingness and then birth their souls anew.
Shiva: But the exceptional might of your heart has inverted the fate of those villagers.
Shiva: That strength of heart may be the factor that controls the trajectory of all the sky.
By praying wholeheartedly for the boy, (Captain) rescued an entire village from annihilation.
The greathearted captain at last begins realizing on a gut level that the unlikely miracle was in fact real.
Vyrn: Can people's prayers really do that much?
Shiva: They can indeed.
Shiva: The source of my power is the faith of the people.
Shiva: I respond to the impassioned wishes and prayers of the children of men. There is much joy in granting salvation to all through apocalyptic fire.
Shiva: For this reason my relationship with humans is bounteous and fruitful. And the prayers of the children of men nourish me.
Shiva: If the hearts of those who pray are strong, I am able to make use of their power.
Vyrn: Whoa! So you mean to say that crazy miracle back there was all thanks to (Captain)!
Vyrn: Sweet, (Captain)! Good goin'!
Lyria: That's right!
Shiva: Humph... The red dragon speaks words I am not familiar with.
Vyrn: Huh?
Shiva: New culture and new words of the children of men are both joys to me.
Shiva: And in this moment, I have learned a new joy.
Shiva: Sweet...
Shiva: Red dragon, I have heard your words and grasped their meaning. Allow me to thank you.
Vyrn: What!
Lyria: Are you studying language, Shiva?
Shiva: What reason is there to be startled?
Vyrn: What reason? You just said something really wild, er...
Vyrn: Uh, it's just a bit strange comin' from you...
Shiva: Strange coming from me? Please explain further...
Vyrn: Huh? I wouldn't know how...
Lyria: Uh....
Vyrn: Geez... Hey, (Captain), how should I explain?
Shiva: I have heard this word geez as well.
Vyrn: Wha—
Shiva: Red dragon, your name was Vyrn, was it not? You are fascinating.
Shiva: Please instruct me in the words and culture of this age.
Vyrn: What! How come you're pickin' me?
Shiva: Are you feeling geezed?
Vyrn: Pfft... Hahaha! Do ya hafta say that with such a serious face? And you're not even sayin' it right!
Lyria: Hehe... You're kind of cute, Shiva!
Lyria: I thought that you might be scarier, but you're very kind.
Vyrn: Haha, that's right! I really like him too!
Shiva: Gwahaha... Is that so?
Shiva: Then become my adherents.
Lyria: Huh?
Vyrn: What?
Shiva: Singularity, do you wish for my power?
  1. Mm-hm.
  2. Nope.

Choose: Mm-hm.
Shiva: A clear response. Highly agreeable.

Choose: Nope.
Shiva: I see.
Speaking thus, Shiva turns his back and begins to leave.
  1. Wait!
  2. I want it after all!

Choose: Wait!
(Captain) rushes to stop Shiva before he departs.

Choose: I want it after all!
(Captain) shouts from behind Shiva, who is walking away.

Shiva: You seem to enjoy indirectness. You must learn that you can choose but once.

Shiva: Nagaraja.
Nagaraja: Squeak, squeak...
Still wrapped around Shiva, the serpent hands (Captain) a tiny statuette.
Vyrn: What is this?
