(Captain) and company encounter Societte, the fan-wielding heir to a royal family that disappeared a thousand years ago. Societte is disappointed that the crew doesn't seem to have any new information, but ultimately agrees to join them when they offer to help her search.
The crew undertakes a mission to exterminate fire monsters within an ancient ruin.
Once inside, they encounter a massive monster.
Vyrn: That's one tough-looking critter!
Vyrn: This isn't gonna be easy, but it's now or never! Here we go, (Captain)!
Lyria: H-hold on! There's a woman back there!
Vyrn: What's she doing by herself? We've gotta help her before it's too—
???: Your fire will not suffice.
The massive fans in the elegant Erune's hands begin to take on a scarlet sheen.
She begins to dance. With a wave of her fans, the monster falls.
Vyrn: Did she topple that monster just by dancing?
Vyrn: That was amazing! Did you use some kind of magic?
Vyrn: She's, uh, staring at us. Without saying anything.
Lyria: I don't know why, but I'm getting really nervous...
???: Ah, er...
Vyrn: Something wrong? Sounds like you're mumbling to yourself.
Lyria: Vyrn, I think she has something to say to us.
The Erune nods her head, wagging her tail happily all the while.
She introduces herself as Societte, and explains that her shyness makes it difficult for her to speak to others.
Vyrn: So that's why you didn't say anything!
Societte: Sorry. I get embarrassed around people I don't know.
Vyrn: Don't worry about it! We didn't even really notice.
Lyria: Did you accept the mission to defeat the monster too, Societte?
Societte: No. Not quite.
Societte: I heard stories of a monster with the power of flame and decided to search for it myself.
Societte: It wasn't what I was expecting. The monster attacked me, so I just had to take it down.
Vyrn: You made that sound kinda easy, but that monster's not exactly a pushover, is it?
Vyrn: Hm? You're looking for someone, Paper Fan Princess?
Societte: These aren't paper fans.
Vyrn: Oh! My bad.
Lyria: They're very well made! And I love the designs on them too!
Societte: So ah, have you heard of the nine... I mean, the living flame?
Vyrn: Talk about a sudden change of subject! Lyria, have you heard of this living flame thing?
Lyria: Hmm... No, I haven't. Sorry.
Societte: Pay it no mind.
Vyrn: At any rate, why are you looking for something like that?
Societte: Sorry, but I'm afraid I can't talk about it at length. I don't want to involve innocent bystanders.
Lyria: I don't want to interfere, but if you gave us a little hint, maybe we could help you!
Vyrn: We might hear something while we travel through the skies!
Vyrn: If it's something we can help out with, we'd be glad to lend a hand! Right, (Captain)?
Societte: If I tell you more, you may end up being targeted by evildoers. Is that acceptable to you?
Choose: I don't mind.
- I don't mind.
- Um... No thank you.
Societte: Wait. That's right. You're quite powerful.
Vyrn: Haha, yeah! And we're gonna get even stronger!
Vyrn: We've already dealt with all sorts of bad guys, including the empire! So don't worry about it!
Lyria: Haha, that's right.
Lyria: However, (Captain) has looked after us and kept us safe.
Societte: Very well, then. You... don't look like bad people.Choose: Um... No thank you.
Societte: Very well. Understood.
Vyrn: Hold on! You're just kidding around, right, (Captain)?
Societte: Umm... huh? That was... a joke?
Vyrn: Well, to be fair, I don't think there's anything we could run into that would surprise us at this point.
(Captain) nods in agreement.
Vyrn: Fan Girl here sure is a delicate flower!
Societte: Yer a prankster, I see...
Societte: Okay then—I'll tell you. Besides, you don't look like bad people.Continue 1
Societte calmly begins explaining the situation to the party.
A thousand years ago, there existed a country with nine royal families. They revered and worshiped a living flame, whose power kept them safe.
One day, however, the power of the flame ran out of control. Eventually, the flame itself vanished.
Societte explains that eight of the nine sacred treasures containing the sacred flame had been lost, and that she was now looking for them.
Vyrn: So you've been searching for these eight sacred flame treasures or whatever by yourself?
Societte: Um... Actually, those aren't the only things I'm looking for.
Societte: I'm also looking to recover seven dances dedicated to them, along with their successors.
Societte: I'm also searching for a friend of mine, and... Well, it's complicated.
Vyrn: Seriously? Sounds like you've got your hands full!
Lyria: Why are you looking for so many things all by yourself?
Societte: Well, er... Look at this.
Societte: This... is the first dance.
Societte's fans begin to glimmer.
Societte: This is the power of my line. I am the heir to their divine legacy.
Lyria: That's incredible! And so pretty!
Societte: I protected our homeland as a descendant of the royal line.
Societte: As a successor, I must make everything lost known once more.
Societte: That's why I'm here. I'm sure of it.
Vyrn: Wow, that sounds cool! Epic too!
Societte: You... you think so?
Lyria: Yes! You're carrying out a huge mission all by yourself!
Societte: Actually, I... originally wanted to travel with friends.
Societte: Circumstances, unfortunately, made sure that didn't happen.
Lyria: I-I see. It sounds like you've been through a lot.
Vyrn: Have you found any of the twenty things you're searching for on your own yet?
Societte: No. I've found nothing.
Societte: I-In fact... I haven't so much as found a single clue.
Societte: And when I try to gather information, well... It's difficult for me to explain the situation to others.
Societte: I came here thinking it might lead somewhere, but...
Lyria: But that was off the mark too.
Societte: Did listening to my conversation bring anything to mind?
Lyria: I'm sorry, Societte, but I really can't think of anything.
Vyrn: Me neither. Sorry.
Societte: No, that's okay.
Societte: I'm just glad you listened to me. For some reason, it... feels easy to talk to you.
Societte: Um, actually... about that...
Societte: Er... I mean...
Choose: Let's look for it together.
- Let's look for it together.
- Speak clearly.
Vyrn: Yeah! If we travel together, it'll be easier to search for info on these sacred treasures of yours!
Societte: A-are ya sure that's okay?
Lyria: Of course!Choose: Speak clearly.
Societte: Ngh... H-hey!
Societte: I haven't been able to feel at ease speaking to others for so long. I hope we will become friends.
Societte: I never imagined I'd have an opportunity like this again, so... if it's okay with you, I'd... I'd like to...
Vyrn: You want us to cooperate with you?
Societte: Gasp! Y-yes...
Societte: Until I find my friend is fine...
Vyrn: Don't sweat the small stuff! Let's go look for 'em together!
Lyria: Right! It'll be easier to gather information and find these treasures you're looking for if we look together!
Lyria: You mentioned before that bad guys might come after us, right?
Lyria: Does that mean you're being targeted by them too?
Lyria: That's all the more reason we should travel together, then! You'll be able to rest easy as long as we're around!Continue 2
Societte: I just wanted some assistance gathering information. I never imagined you'd invite me to travel with you...
Vyrn: Searching for all that stuff by yourself must be rough! It'll be way easier working together!
Vyrn: We're trying to get somewhere too! We keep getting distracted, but hey...
Lyria: We'll definitely help you if you figure something out, Societte!
Societte: Goodness... I've never experienced such kindness from strangers before. Only my father, mother, and sister treated me like this...
Societte: Um, so, er...
Societte: I'm looking forward to... working with you...
Her face beet red, Societte bows in gratitude, wagging her tail and ears all the while.
And with that, the party welcomes Societte, the cripplingly shy royal heir, to the crew.
(Captain)'s party visits a tavern to speak to a man with information on the royal family. Unfortunately, they find him being carried off to some kind of thug hideout, and quickly give chase.
(Captain) and company learn of an Erune man that has information on the royal family.
Sierokarte sets up an appointment for them to meet at the tavern, but he has yet to show up.
Vyrn: Hmm... Our contact is supposed to come and talk to us, right?
Vyrn: What's going on? No one's talking to us.
Vyrn: Hm? What's wrong Societte?
(Captain) looks at Societte.
Societte is blatantly staring at an Erune man with her tail wagging quietly.
Erune Man: ... Um.
Erune Man: Oh, haha, hello...
The Erune man meets eyes with Societte. After an an awkward moment, he smiles and walks away.
Societte's ears and tail slump down sadly as she watches the man leave.
Vyrn: Hey now... What are you doing?
Societte: H-He was staring into my eyes.
Societte: I-I thought he would come talk to me...
Lyria: Um, maybe he was the person that we were supposed to meet...
Societte: Oh, so that's why he looked like he was about to say something...
Vyrn: Hey... Why didn't you say something?
Vyrn: Let's go find him!
Erune Man: ...
Societte: T-There he is! That's him!
Vyrn: Alright, let's talk to him! Hey, excuse me!
Right as Vyrn calls out to him, scoundrels suddenly appear from the back alley.
The scoundrels knock the man unconscious and try to take him away.
Vyrn: H-Hey! What do you think you're doing?!
Thug: Damn, someone saw us...! We'll buy some time, so you guys take him to the hideout.
Let's help him, (Captain)!
Floral Arrangement: Scene 2
(Captain) and the crew struggle in vain as the Erune man is kidnapped by thugs. When Societte frantically asks them to help, the party realizes the gravity of the situation and gives chase.
Thug 1: Whoa, these guys are strong... Hm?
Thug 1: That dance... Those fans... It can't be...
Thug 2: Hey, it's time to go.
Vyrn: Hold it, you informant-snatching jerks!
Societte: Let's go after 'em, (Captain)!
Societte: If we don't hurry, they'll kill him!
Vyrn: W-wait, for real?
Societte: My parents were killed by evil people who wanted information on the royal family.
Vyrn: Say what?
Lyria: D-does that mean they're the same bad people who are targeting you, Societte?
Societte: To people like them, information on the royal families is as precious as any treasure. That's why they're after me. And if we don't do something, he's going to be in danger too.
Vyrn: Then we need to hurry!
Lyria: Oh, look over there!
Vyrn: Hm? A cave?
Societte: One of the men from earlier just went inside. That must be their hideout!
Societte: Let's go, (Captain)!
Thug 2: Whoa there! You're not getting past me!
Thug 2: It's payback time! And this time, I'm not gonna hold back!
Vyrn: You never learn, do you? Guess we have to make sure the lesson sticks, (Captain)!
Floral Arrangement: Scene 3
The crew finds the Erune man being questioned by the leader of the thugs, who realizes Societte's true identity after noticing her fan. The crew draw their weapons and prepare to save the Erune man.
The crew defeats the thugs and enters their hideout.
There, they find the Erune man being questioned.
Gang Leader: All right, time to talk! Tell us everything you know about the royal families and Ninetails!
Erune Man: Agh... Urgh... Never... I'll never tell you!
Thug: Boss, that's her! The one I told you about!
Gang Leader: A fan bearing the crest of a royal family? Hahaha... You must be joking.
Gang Leader: I never expected an heir to a royal family—a successor to the power of Ninetails—would come right to me!
Vyrn: Hm? Ninetails?
Gang Leader: You saved us the trouble of finding you! How lucky...
Societte: Are you the ones who killed my parents?
Gang Leader: Huh? What are you talking about?
Societte: Why are ya after the power of Ninetails, then?
Gang Leader: Buh? So I can do whatever I want with the power of the almighty, obviously!
Societte: That's not gonna happen.
Societte: If you can't even beat me, the power of Ninetails will forever remain outside your grasp.
Gang Leader: What'd you say?
Gang Leader: Enough! Get them, men!
Societte: Here they come, (Captain)!
Floral Arrangement: Scene 4
(Captain)'s crew rescues the Erune man, who reveals he's a successor of the royal family, but doesn't have the information Societte is looking for. Societte attempts to leave the crew, but realizes the bond she now shares with them is deeper than she imagined.
(Captain) and company defeat the ruffians, but several of them manage to get away.
Thankfully, they still manage to successfully rescue the Erune man.
Erune Man: I can't thank you enough for rescuing me.
Erune Man: Terribly sorry about what happened back at the tavern...
Erune Man: That young miss over there was so elegant and dignified, I found myself at a loss for words.
Vyrn: Heheh! I know how you feel!
Lyria: Societte really is pretty, isn't she? I don't blame you for getting nervous.
Erune Man: Er, yes. As embarrassing as it is to say, I was simply quite nervous. My apologies.
Societte: Um, it's okay... I'm sorta responsible too.
Erune Man: Considering your beauty and elegance, I'm not surprised to hear you're of royal descent.
The Erune man explains why he arranged a meetup with the party.
As a descendant of a branch of a royal family, he had grown increasingly concerned about the number of people seeking the power of Ninetails.
When he heard the crew was searching for information on the royal families, he decided to find out what their intentions were.
Erune Man: I never even imagined I'd encounter a direct descendant of one of the royal bloodline, however.
Societte: Which royal family did you serve?
Erune Man: I'm sorry, but... my ancestors were of a very distant branch. I'm afraid I don't know which family they served under.
Erune Man: I was told stories of Ninetails and the royal families, but not much beyond that.
Societte: I see... Understood. Thank you.
Erune Man: I'm terribly sorry I couldn't be of help. Now, if you'll excuse me...
Vyrn: Hey now! Are you gonna be okay by yourself?
Erune Man: Yes, I'll be fine. I may have let my guard down earlier, but I can take care of myself, I assure you.
With that, the man thanks them once again and leaves.
Vyrn: Hey, Societte. I've been wondering...
Vyrn: What's this Ninetails thing we keep hearing about?
Societte: Ninetails is a being of great power. My family served her for generations.
Lyria: Is that...
Societte: Yes. The true name of the living flame I'm searching for.
Vyrn: Gotcha... Why didn't you tell us?
Societte: I thought that if I told you about her, you would only end up being dragged into my conflict.
Societte: S-so um... it's probably better if I continued my journey alone.
Lyria: Huh? W-why do you say that?
Societte: Well, think about those bad guys that escaped earlier.
Societte: They're coming after me next time. And they'll be chasing the power of Lady Ninetails.
Societte: So something like today might happen again... Or worse.
Choose: We can't leave you by yourself.
- We can't leave you by yourself.
- If that's what you want...
Lyria: That's right! We can't leave you alone after hearing that!
Societte: B-but I—
Vyrn: No buts! Do you remember when we first met?
Lyria: We told you we were going to help you!
Lyria: So let's keep travelling together, okay?
Societte: You guys... Yer all so... nice.Choose: If that's what you want...
Societte's ears and tail droop sadly, and she turns to leave.
Lyria: Is this what you really want, Societte?
Lyria: I think (Captain) wants to know what you're really thinking. Isn't that right?
(Captain) quietly nods in response.
Lyria: Is this what you really want?
Societte: I-I... I want...
Societte: I really... want y'all to gimme a hand...
Societte: I-I'd be so lonely on my own... without another soul to talk to...
Societte: I'd feel so helpless...
Vyrn: Well, you should have just said so!
Vyrn: Gotta help each other out when we can, y'know!
Societte: I-is it really okay for me to stay with you guys?Continue 1
Vyrn: Of course!
Lyria: Yeah! You're our friend!
Societte: Gasp... I'm... your friend...
Societte: U-um... Thanks for letting me stay... I really appreciate it.
Turning red up to her ears, Societte thanks the crew as they return to the airship together.
Still blushing, Societte feels a warm bond with her stalwart friends.
One day, Yuel, discovering Societte's secret blood connection to the royal family, flies into a wild rage in spite of their close friendship. However, Societte manages to explain that she didn't reveal her secret so as to not endanger Yuel. Yuel declines Societte's offer to take on her mission to find the treasures necessary to restore the royal lineage, and instead they decide to join forces. Fully reconciled, Societte teaches Yuel a special dance required to complete their mission. As the dance goes on, the dancers become wreathed in tongues of blue and red flames.
Yuel: What the hell, Societte! Why didn't ya tell me this earlier!
Societte: Ah... Erm... Uh... Oh...
The treasure hunting Yuel and the treasure holding Societte found each other again when they both joined (Captain)'s crew.
Despite their familiarity with one another, they didn't seem to see eye to eye.
Vyrn: Come on guys, can't you both just get along?
Lyria: Anyway, Societte was about to tell us something.
Yuel: Hey! You guys stay outta this! This is between me an' Societte, ya hear?
Vyrn: Humph. Yuel's so mad, I don't think we're gonna be able to calm her down.
Yuel had just found out that Societte was in fact the heir to a very noble family.
Seeming to forget that they were childhood friends, Yuel became infuriated upon realizing Societte had been hiding this.
Yuel: I mean, who does that! You knew that I was tryin' to restore the... to recover the lost history!
Societte: Um... But...
Yuel: But nothin'!
Societte: I... I'm sorry...
Yuel: Ugh! You're not gettin' it! I mean, I am mad that you've been hidin' this, but...
Yuel: I'm more hurt that you didn't trust me.
Yuel: I... I trust you completely, you know? I mean, I love you.
Yuel: But, maybe you don't feel the same way. Obviously you don't trust me at all.
Societte: No! That's not true at all...
Societte: Yuel, you mean more to me than anything. That's why I couldn't tell you.
Yuel: What's that s'pposed to mean?
Societte: Um... Well... Just watch... the first act...
Yuel: Societte, you can use the spirit fire too? I thought that was something only I could...
Societte: It's a very rare gift. A thousand years ago, our ancestors worshipped a nine-tailed fox.
Societte: That power and the knowledge of the royal house that controlled it are the real treasure...
Societte: And there's a bad person who's trying to take both of those things from me.
Yuel: What? So someone attacked you too?
Societte weakly nodded her head.
Vyrn: Well, Societte, you did say that you lost your parents to some bad people...
Yuel: Really? So the reason she came to my village when we were little...
Societte: My mom—before the end, she said that I'd be safe in the village.
Yuel: I... I had no idea.
Societte: I was so scared. All that talk of the royal family...
Societte: I was scared I'd lose you too...
Societte: So I decided I'd never tell you about it, to protect you from the bad men...
Societte: But then, you...
Yuel: I see, so when... When I tried to revive the ancestors, I invoked that power.
Societte: When that happened, I had no idea what I should do...
Yuel: Hmm... So that's why you looked so troubled that day I left the village.
Societte: Yuel... you were really serious about reviving the royal house, weren't ya?
Yuel: I guess. When I got the power of the spirit fire, I thought it was fate...
Yuel: I thought that if I could get the treasures and the right people, it could all be over. Stupid, I know.
Societte: No, no, that's not it. It's just, if you want to revive the royal line, you need something else as well.
Societte: You need... the nine-tailed fox. And then, there's a dance... and someone who has inherited them all...
Yuel: Oh, I need to find all that?
Societte: It's going to be difficult, and dangerous.
Societte: I... I've been thinking. This mission you've started...
Societte: I think I should be the one to do it. I have the blood connection, I have the treasure, I know the dance...
Societte: And then Yuel, you can...
Yuel: Oh... I see. Well, Let's go for a walk!
Societte: Huh? What?
Yuel: Come on! (Captain), you guys can come too! Me and Societte'll go on ahead!
With a smile ten miles wide Yuel took Societte by the hand and left the airship.
Lyria: W-wait! Yuel!
Societte: Yuel, what are we doing here? It's really creepy, I'm getting scared.
Yuel: I guess it's a bit weird around here, but we have to... Aha! Here it is!
Yuel: Look! Over there! That spring! Look how clear that water is!
Societte: Wow! You're right! It's beautiful!
Yuel: Ahahaha! There, now you're not so scared, are ya?
Societte: Hmm... You're right! I'm not scared any more! Heehee!
Yuel: See? Oh and what's this?
Yuel: Over here! Stand here and take a reeeal deep breath!
Societte: Sniff... Sniff... Haaah...
Societte: Huh? The air is so clear!
Yuel: Right? I've never smelled air so clean!
Societte: Incredible. I had no idea this place existed!
Yuel: Ahahaha! All right, onto the next one!
The crew, following Yuel into the forest, did as she instructed and hid in the undergrowth.
Yuel: Not long now... It'll be here soon...
Societte: Huh? What'll be here soon?
Yuel: Hee! It's that long-eared thingy! It comes here a lot. Isn't it funny lookin'?
Societte: Ahahaha! You're right. But, it's kinda cute too.
Societte: Ah! It ran away!
Yuel: Ahahaha! It ran away! Let's go after it!
Societte: Heehee. Yeah! Let's chase it!
The crew caught up with Yuel and Societte, and spent the rest of the day frolicking.
Yuel: Wasn't that fun? Seeing new sights, finding new things...
Societte: Heehee. It was a bit tiring, but I had such a good time!
Yuel: I knew you'd enjoy treasure hunting!
Yuel: It's a mission, and I take it seriously, but there's fun to be had with it too! It can be a real adventure!
Yuel: I'm sorry, I just can't give this life up. I have to carry on searching for the treasure.
Yuel: And if I stop treasure hunting, then all those bad people will start going after you, Societte.
Yuel: So you see, I have to carry on.
Yuel: But then, I don't think I could bare to be away from you. That would hurt as much as if you were in danger.
Yuel: So if...if we were to go together, then we'd both be safe...
Yuel: Right? If we're together then nothing in this world can stop us.
Societte: Oh...Yuel... Sob...
Yuel: But anyway, enough chatter...
Societte turned red in embarrassment as Yuel patted her on the head.
Societte: I've never told you, but that day when you left the village, I'd have given anything to be going with you.
Yuel: What! Then why didn't you say anything?
Societte: I... wanted to. But I was torn. I didn't know whether I wanted to stop you or join you.
Societte: And before I had a chance to say anything, you were already gone.
Yuel: So that's what really happened. I'm sorry, I had no idea you felt that way.
Societte: Don't apologize. If anything, I should be the one apologizing to you.
Societte: Eh... ah... um! Yuel! If you don't mind, I'd like to ask you...
Societte: Erm... I mean... Can I please join?
Yuel: Ahaha! As if I'd say no after all this! Wild horses couldn't keep me away! Let's do this together!
Vyrn: Heheh, don't forget about us! We're here to help you on your quest!
Societte: Yuel... Vyrn... everyone. Thank you!
Tears glinted in Societte's eyes, and though she tried to hide her emotion, her tail wagged tellingly.
Yuel, seeing this, broke into a smile and started wagging her own tail, and went to pat her on the head once again.
Yuel: H-hey, going back to what you said earlier...
Yuel: I'd... I'd really like to learn that special dance you mentioned.
Societte: Well, I think as long as you can use the spirit fire, you should be able to do it. Very well, I'll teach you.
Yuel: Yay! You mean it? Awesome! You're the best, Societte!
Societte taught Yuel the basic steps, and the two started dancing.
Societte danced without a foot out of step. And though Yuel was still learning, one could not help but be moved by her moves.
As they continued their graceful dance, they started to be surrounded by tongues of blue and red flame.
The colors of the flames matched the dancers perfectly. The crew got lost in the beauty of the performance.
