Happy Birthday Cutscenes
# Link Text
1

Happy birthday! I'm so happy to be able to celebrate with you on this special day!
I hope it's a good one!

2

I'm wishing you a happy birthday. I'm so glad to spend such a wonderful day with you.
I know your wish, (Captain), is to get to your father on Estalucia, the Island of the Astrals.
So I'll do everything in my power as a Zeyen priestess to make sure your wish comes true.
In order to guide the future... In order to grasp it... I'll make sure your determination sees you through to the end, (Captain).
I'm sorry for asking to stay with you on your journey... But I'll always pray that the grace of the Astrals be with you.

3

(Captain), I wish you the warmest birthday greetings today.
I know lots of people are sending you the same greetings.
And you might think nothing of it, (Captain), but in fact it's something quite special.
While meeting so many different people on my pilgrimage, I realized something. You have twice the compassion of a regular person.
I admire that about you. And as a Zeyen priestess, I could learn a thing or two.
I pray from the bottom of my heart that your future is full of blessings, (Captain).

4

Happy birthday, (Captain)!
I'm sure your journey will be filled with trials and challenges.
But, as they say, even the heaviest downpour ends in time. Something good is sure to follow the hardships.
What matters most is that you always believe you'll succeed and refuse to give up. A path is sure to present itself to you if you stay strong.
But I suppose this is nothing I need to say to someone as put together as you, (Captain).
Please don't forget that your upright attitude is an inspiration to many others, (Captain).
I'll be praying that joy is your companion wherever you go!

5

Happy birthday! You've had quite the exciting year, haven't you?
You've met so many different people and experienced so many wonderful new things.
I'm certain that each and every one of those experiences will build you up and lead to further growth.
It's like how tiny droplets of water, when dripping ceaselessly, can bore a hole through the toughest stone.
Even if the parts are small, as long as you keep stacking and stacking them up, they have the power to form a massive whole.
That's why we have to believe every day we live through is an irreplaceable piece of our lives.
I pray that you have ever greater adventures in the future. And though I'm afraid I haven't much to offer, I will help in whatever way I can!
May the protection of Zeyen be with you!

Happy New Year Cutscenes

Happy New Year!
Want to know my New Year's resolution? This year I'm going to make it through my pilgrimage!

2

My New Year's resolutions are to make many more friends and to deepen my understanding of the Zeyen ways.
I may be on a bit of a roundabout path, but I believe it's a necessary experience in order to grow.
After all, it's the little detour I took that led me to meeting you, (Captain)!
I'm still in training, but I'll work my hardest as both a Zeyen priestess and a member of your crew.
I'm looking forward to journeying by your side this year!

3

Happy New Year! Thanks to you, I was able to learn so much more about the Zeyen faith last year.
But for every new thing I learned, new questions began to form in my mind...
I didn't think that mastering the teachings would be easy, but I'm reminded about how much time it will take.
There's no rush, you say? Heh-heh, you're right... If I rush myself and lose sight of what's important, then it defeats the purpose entirely.
(Captain), please be sure to show me lots more this year on our journey!

4

Happy New Year! I appreciate everything you did last year.
It was so satisfying to travel from island to island and meet all those new people together, (Captain).
I still have much to learn as a priest, but I intend to keep progressing step by step.
(Captain), please accept my heartfelt prayers that the light of hope may shine on your path.

5

Happy New Year. I hope this year proves to be as wonderful as the last.
Have you already visited the shrine, (Captain)?
I went in the early hours of the morning, while the air was still fresh and cold.
The sun hadn't yet risen, but already the line of visitors stretched on and on.
Each and every person there harbored great hope for the new year. They went to the shrine, brimming with all sorts of wishes, and prayed for good fortune.
I found it most refreshing, walking amongst people aspiring to new heights.
I, too, cannot stand still. As a priestess, I must pursue my calling with ever greater devotion.
May Zeyen light your path as well, (Captain).

Valentine's Day Cutscenes

1

Happy Valentine's Day. Do you... like sweets?
I made some chocolates, but I'm not sure if you'd like them...

2

Happy Valentine's Day, (Captain)!
Well... Let's see... I made some chocolate to give you, but do you like chocolate?
You do? I'm glad... So please take this gift!
I was worried at first, since some people don't really care for sweet treats. But I'm relieved that you're happy to take it!
I hope you enjoy it!

3

(Captain), I made some chocolate. I hope you'll like it...
I tried a difficult recipe, so I'm a little worried whether it came out all right. But it looks like you're enjoying it!
I made it with all my feelings of hope that your journey would fall under the protection of Zeyen.
So I'm sure good things will come your way!

4

(Captain), as a matter of fact, there's something I'd like to give you.
I made you some chocolates again this year. Would you accept them?
Who would have thought they'd make you so happy? Heh-heh, that joy of yours is contagious.
I made them as a way to show how grateful I am for what everything you do every day.
May you receive the protection of Zeyen, my kind, dear (Captain).

5

Happy Valentines, (Captain).
Erm... I've prepared Valentines chocolates yet again. Will you take some?
Hehe. I'm happy to see you so delighted!
This is now the fifth present I've given you for Valentines.
I look forward to this exchange every year, you know. Because you're always so warm and grateful.
But I got a bit ahead of myself this year. I bought far too many ingredients, and I still have chocolate left over.
If you would like another helping, please do let me know. As long as I've still chocolate left, I'll be happy to oblige.

White Day Cutscenes

1

Today's White Day, isn't it?
Is this in return for Valentine's Day? Oh my... Thank you! I'm happy to accept it!

2

Huh? What's this?
I don't deserve a gift from you, (Captain)...
But thank you... for thinking of me!
I'm very happy to receive it, but I'm so surprised at the same time!
I'm happy to know how you feel nonetheless!
Heheheh...

3

Huh? You're giving me a thank-you gift?
And it's homemade... Are you sure you want to give it to me?

(Captain)explains that the chocolates were made with feelings of hope that Sophia would safely complete her pilgrimage.

Oh really? Since I made a special wish for you, you decided to do the same for me as thanks, right?
Heh-heh, wishing blessings for each other... Thinking about that warms my heart.
If that's the case, then I gratefully accept this gift. I know that eating this will make my pilgrimage a success!

4

Oh, you're thanking me for the gift I gave you last month. Thank you very much for remembering!
I see you wanted to express your gratitude. I don't believe I've done all that much, but, well...
Well, it's an honor if you believe that I have. Thank you very much!
Your words are truly moving, (Captain).
I'll be sure to let your thoughts into my heart as I'm eating these, (Captain).

5

Oh, could this be a thank-you gift for Valentine's?
Thank you very much. I'll cherish it!
Hm? Why have you started grinning so? Did I do something silly...
You're only reflecting my own joy? Then I must've had quite the smile on my face.
Hehe. I never even dreamed that you would one day compliment me on my smile, (Captain).
I've always derived happiness from observing the smiles of others...
Knowing that my own smile carries the same power to delight... Why, there is no greater joy than this.
I've learned something valuable today, thanks to you. May endless smiles continue to light our journey ahead.

Trick or Treat Cutscenes

1

Trick or treat! If you don't give me any candy, I'll have to play a prank on you, OK?
Promise you won't get mad?

2

Huh? Strange. I thought (Captain) was here, but...
Let's turn back.
Eep! C-Captain! Where did you come from?
Hahaha... You really surprised me. I can't believe I screamed that loud.
I got all these treats together, but it never occurred to me you'd choose tricks instead... Sniff...

3

A neatly folded slip of paper lies on the floor.
(Captain) picks it up, and inside it are clearly written instructions for a prank.
Huh? Oh no! I've lost the note!
Ah, is that you, (Captain)?
Uh, well... I sort of lost something... But it's all right! Really, it's fine!
Oh, I see you're holding a piece of paper, (Captain)... Yes, it's mine.
You didn't, um... take a peek at it, did you?
Yes, you've got me... But now it's a failed plan to try and trick you. Ah well...
Huh? You think we should give it a try together anyway?
I see! You and I can play a trick on someone else!
Oh, with you on my side, (Captain), I think I can pull this off! Let's do our best to play lots of tricks!

4

Whew... This really has me on edge...
Eeek!
Oh, (Captain)... I'm sorry. I should have just called out to you normally.
I... I thought that some children were playing a prank on me. It was really alarming...
Ahaha, you're right that I should be safe from pranks here in my room...
But I do feel bad about turning my back on the tricks that everyone worked so hard to make. That's why I'm going to muster up my courage...
Whaaat! (Captain), do you want to prank me too?
A-all right! Please take it easy on me!

5

My... This is troubling...
Sophia hides in a corner of town, which is bustling with Halloween festivities.
Oh, you found me, (Captain)...
It's only natural you'd be worried about me... Actually, this is rather embarrassing to admit but...
There was a monster chasing children about earlier, and it scared me so much my legs gave out.
Ahaha... You must find me pitiable. It wasn't even coming after me, and yet...
What's that? You'll stay by my side until I can stand again?
That's truly reassuring. I'm so glad that you're the one who found me!
Let me share some sweets with you as thanks. There's plenty to go around, so take as many as you'd like!

Happy Holidays Cutscenes

Happy holidays!
I want to put smiles on all the kids faces! Just like Santa does!

2

Do you think Santa Claus will make his way here?
After all, there are kids on the airship waiting for their presents!
What? You want to know what I want?
I'm but a pilgrim on a journey. I have no desire for worldly things. However...
I still want to see everyone's happy faces more than anything else.
Ha-ha! Why, thank you for asking, (Captain)!

3

Happy holidays! I heard that lots of gifts were delivered to the children on the airship!
My heart fills with joy whenever I see their beaming faces! Their smiles are truly a treasure.
Santa Claus is really something! Crossing all the skies in one night and making kids smile...
I hope I can bring happiness to many others too by becoming a great priestess and spreading the teachings of Zeyen.
Now then, I must get ready for the party! I'll get to cooking and make everyone smile in my own way for today!

4

Happy holidays!
The holiday festivities are about to begin!
Me? It may not be my place, but I'm decking the halls.
This precious evening is one we all spend together. I simply wanted to make the children smile, if only just a bit.
My efforts may not be much, but I'd be delighted if they bring others some happiness.
I'll keep pushing on! (Captain), you can wait outside until I'm finished.
Hm? Would you like to work together?
Thank you very much! Let's make it beautiful!

5

Earlier, some of the crew's children came by, asking me to mend their ripped stockings. So here I am...
It's been a while since I've last darned stockings like these—the kind meant for presents and not feet, I mean. How nostalgic.
Now, I dedicate myself wholly to my faith. But once, I too was a young girl awaiting presents from Santa.
He often brought me little dolls. I never asked for anything in particular.
But that made unwrapping the gifts all the more exciting. The memory of those distant mornings is a great treasure.
It is my sincere wish that the children from earlier can taste that same joy. And that happiness begins with a well-mended stocking.
Say, (Captain), do you have any similar memories? If you can spare a moment, please tell me all about them!

Astral Pilgrim

(Captain) and company meet the Zeyen priestess Sophia. When they learn that the Zeyen holy grounds have a connection to the Astrals, they ask the good-natured and somewhat careless Sophia to join them.



The crew visits an exceptional country said to be prospering thanks to the supernatural protection provided by the primal beast Sylph.
They're traveling with the priestess Sophia, whom they met while heading for the royal capital Feendrache.
Vyrn: Earlier you said you're on a pilgrimage to the holy grounds, but why are you doing that, Sophia?
Sophia: It was actually a trial imposed on me by my grandfather, a high priest.
Lyria: Um... What is this Zeyen faith all about anyway?
Sophia: Huh? You guys don't know about the Zeyen faith?
Sophia: Ahem... Then allow me to explain!
Sophia: The Zeyen faith is a major creed that ties the Sky Realm to the Astral Realm.
Sophia: The Astrals left a mark on this world, and we hope to understand their intentions by carefully studying their power.
Sophia: We also believe the souls of those who believe in the divine protection of the Astrals will soon find eternal happiness.
Vyrn: Okay, we get it already! We now know all we need to know about the Zeyen faith, so thanks for the lesson!
Sophia: At any rate, I must finish my pilgrimage as all the other Zeyen high priests have over the generations.
Lyria: Whoa! I'm not exactly sure what you're talking about, but it sounds terribly difficult...
Lyria: And what are these holy grounds you keep mentioning anyway?
Sophia: That's a good question! The holy grounds, as defined in our Zeyen doctrine, are the places where the War raged.
Sophia: To be specific, they're the sites of the intense battles fought between the Astrals and skydwellers.
Vyrn: But weren't those battles centuries ago? What do you do there?
Sophia: That involves the mysterious ability bestowed upon those who take up the role of a Zeyen high priest.
Lyria: A mysterious ability?
Sophia: Yes... This ability enables me to see the power the Astrals left to linger at the holy grounds.
Vyrn: Power left behind by the Astrals... Do you mean primal beasts?
Sophia: Exactly. I can see the power of the primal beasts.
Lyria: Whoa! You can talk to primal beasts too, Sophia?
Sophia: Wait... You mean you can talk to primal beasts?
Lyria: I sure can! And I can even borrow their power!
Sophia: Incredible... I wonder what my grandfather would say if he heard that.
Sophia: But unlike you, Lyria, I can't attune myself with primal beasts. All I can do is bear witness to their power.
Vyrn: All you can do? Why would you be disappointed about that? That's pretty amazing!
Sophia: Thank you for saying that.
Lyria: But if your trial is so important to you, are you sure you can make a detour to Feendrache?
Sophia: You do have a point there. But you've touched on a bit of a weakness of mine.
Sophia: Perhaps due to the teachings of my grandfather, I'm quite unable to abandon people in trouble.
Vyrn: And so you're putting off your pilgrimage to go to the capital and make an appeal for the sake of the people of Ruforth Village.
Lyria: So once you take care of the immediate problem, you'll be back to your pilgrimage?
Sophia: That's right. And I've decided to go to a nearby island next, but... Huh?
Vyrn: What's the matter?
Sophia: I... I can't find it! I lost my map to the holy grounds!
Lyria: Wha? Are you all right, Sophia?
Vyrn: Seriously? Just when I thought you had it all together...
Sophia: No... What will I do without my map?
Lyria: Keep calm, Sophia! Check your satchel and your pockets again!
Sophia: Ugh... It's like it just disappeared...
Vyrn: In that case, I'm thinking you only have one option.
Vyrn: Why don't you come with us?
Sophia: What?
Vyrn: We're traveling to islands rumored to be the homes of primal beasts to collect pieces of the Sky Map.
Vyrn: Maybe that could help you with your pilgrimage to the holy grounds. Right, (Captain)?
Sophia: Is it really okay if I go with you?
Lyria: Of course! And that way we'll be able to talk with each other every day!
Sophia: Wait... I think I just found it. The map!
Vyrn: Oh! That's a relief! It's obviously really important to you!
Sophia: Nope. False alarm... It's actually a flier I received from a street performer at some point.
Vyrn: You got my hopes up back there!
Sophia: Ugh...
Vyrn: All right. Let's get going then. Okay?
Sophia: Thank you.
Sophia: Once we take care of this country's problems, I'd be happy to join your crew, (Captain)...
Vyrn: All right! Sounds like a plan!
Thus the crew has a fateful encounter with the priestess Sophia.
(Captain) and Sophia's journey has only just begun.

Past and Present

(Captain) and the crew head for one of the Zeyen holy grounds. There, they find a slumbering primal beast. They learn of the beast's promise through Sophia's ability and then head to a nearby village to get more information.



Vyrn: Hey! Are we almost to the War ruins Siero told us about?
Sophia: I think so. Based on the map we got from her... Huh? Where'd the map go?
Lyria: Here, Sophia! You dropped it!
Sophia: What? I'm sorry! I almost got us lost...
Vyrn: Boy... Sophia seems reliable enough, but there's something a little off about her...
(Captain)'s crew is heading for some ruins of the War with Sophia the Zeyen priestess.
According to Zeyen teachings, the ruins are holy grounds, and the high priest's successor must make a pilgrimage there.
Lyria: But I wonder what the ruins are really like.
Lyria: They say they're forlorn and still bear the marks of the War...
Vyrn: Come on... The War with the Astrals happened hundreds of years ago.
Vyrn: Don't you think any obvious signs of the battle would be long gone by now?
Sophia: There are indeed some places where the signs are pretty much gone, but there are always traces of the War, however faint.
Sophia: We, the Zeyen priests and priestesses, can read these traces and learn of the past.
Vyrn: I don't really get it, but it sounds impressive! Don't you think so, (Captain)?
Sophia: Ha-ha... If you don't get it, I'm not sure whether to be happy about your compliment...
Sophia: Huh? What's wrong, Lyria? Why did you stop?
Lyria: In the ground... I feel... the presence of a primal beast nearby.
Vyrn: What? There's a primal beast buried in the ground?
Lyria: Yes... but it seems to be resting in the form of a primal crystal.
Vyrn: I see. Well, these are ruins of the War. I guess it's possible.
Sophia: But according to the map, the ruins of the War are supposed to be way past this forest.
Vyrn: Really? Then why's there a primal beast sleeping here?
Lyria: Hmm... All I can tell you is that it's nearby.
Sophia: Ha-ha... Looks like it's time for the Zeyen priestess to step up.
Vyrn: Huh? What are you going to do?
Sophia: I'm going to read the energy traces left on the land. Then I'll know everything that happened here.
Sophia: Vestiges of Astral power infusing this land... Gather to my staff and reveal history as it unfolded here!
Sophia: ...!
Lyria: Hey! Are you okay, Sophia?
Sophia: Thank you, Lyria... but don't worry. This happens all the time.
Sophia: More importantly... this primal beast seems to have made a promise.
Lyria: A promise?
Sophia: That's right. This primal beast was apparently not suited for combat.
Sophia: So before the decisive battle, it was told to wait here by the Astral that was its master.
Sophia: And so here it lies, still waiting for its master's return.
Lyria: My goodness... That's so sad...
Sophia: Yes... And now that we know, I can't just leave it here.
  1. Let's do something about it.
  2. Let's get more information.

Choose: Let's do something about it.
Sophia: I agree. I'm sure there's something we can do to help.
Sophia: We should start by going to the village to get some information.

Choose: Let's get more information.
Sophia: That would be best. It would help a lot if we could find out more about the Astral who owned this primal beast.
Sophia: Let's head for a nearby village first. Someone might know something.
Continue 1
Vyrn: It's settled then. Now let's get through this forest!
Vyrn: I sense a lot of monsters nearby... Keep your guard up, (Captain)!

Past and Present: Scene 2

(Captain) and company ask the village elder about the sleeping primal beast but can't get the information they want. An imperial soldier shows up in search of information on the beast, and the crew fights the soldier to keep the beast from being captured by the empire.



The crew reaches a nearby village and visits the elder said to be the most knowledgeable person there.
Elder: A primal beast sleeping outside the village?
Sophia: That's right. Do you know anything?
Elder: I'm sorry, but I've never heard of it.
Sophia: I see...
Vyrn: Well, the War was centuries ago after all.
Vyrn: Even if that Astral somehow survived, it's been hundreds of years, so I doubt that—
Sophia: No... I won't give up yet! There must be something we can do!
Sophia: Besides, I can't just leave the primal beast there!
Sophia: Maybe its master left something behind... I refuse to believe there's nothing here!
Lyria: Sophia?
Sophia: Elder! Anything would help! Any little thing...
Sophia: Isn't there something we could tell the primal beast? It's just been waiting there so long...
Elder: I would help if I could, but—
Imperial Soldier: Hey! What's all the commotion about?
Vyrn: Just great. What's that soldier doing here?
Imperial Soldier: Hey, geezer! You know anything about a primal beast that's supposed to be sleeping around here?
Elder: Huh? A sleeping primal beast?
Imperial Soldier: That's right. We, the Erste Empire, are looking for primal beasts to use for experiments.
Lyria: That soldier is after the primal beast!
Imperial Soldier: What was that? Do you guys know where the primal beast is?
Sophia: Yes, we do...
Sophia: I actually think we're the only ones in this village who know about it.
Imperial Soldier: Interesting. In that case, lead me to it.
Sophia: I'm afraid I can't do that.
Imperial Soldier: What did you just say?
Sophia: That beast has been waiting for its master to keep its promise. I'm not about to hand it over to the likes of you!
Sophia: If you want that beast, you'll have to go through me! Lend me your aid, (Captain)!

Past and Present: Scene 3

(Captain)'s crew wins the battle. The elder recalls a place where an Astral was apparently buried, and the crew heads there but finds no clues. Sophia laments her own powerlessness, but Lyria reminds her that there are more important things than the past. More soldiers suddenly appear.



After restraining the imperial soldier, Sophia faces the villain.
Imperial Soldier: Ugh... Damn you all. You won't get away with this!
Sophia: What information led you here?
Sophia: Do you know anything about Astrals around this village?
Imperial Soldier: Even if I did, what good would it do you?
Sophia: I want to know because I believe this is my duty...
Imperial Soldier: I don't know what you're after, but there hasn't been anything here since the War.
Vyrn: Stop acting so pompous and get to your point already.
Imperial Soldier: That is my point. Nothing's left here.
Imperial Soldier: The Astrals here were eliminated in the battle near the end of the War.
Sophia: What?
Imperial Soldier: This place is one of the few battlefields where the skydwellers were completely victorious over the Astrals.
Imperial Soldier: In addition to the primal beast, we've been looking for spoils of war, but nothing has come up so far.
Sophia: But that can't be... There just has to be something.
Elder: I just remembered something...
Elder: I've heard a legend of a place on the outskirts of the village where an Astral was apparently buried.
Elder: But this is merely a rumor, and besides—
Sophia: Where is it? Tell me!
Elder: Beyond the forest that way... but that place is—
Sophia: ...!
Vyrn: Oh! Hey! Where are you going?
Lyria: Let's go after her, (Captain)!
Imperial Soldier: Interesting...
The crew chases Sophia and reaches the place where the Astral is said to be buried, but the priestess looks distraught.
Sophia: This can't be... There's nothing... Nothing at all...
Lyria: Sophia...
Sophia: Once again I couldn't do anything...
Vyrn: What do you mean?
Vyrn: You told us you can read what happened in the past!
Sophia: Yeah... And what exactly would be the point of that?
Sophia: All that comes of reading the past is an understanding of tragedies long since over. I can't make anyone happy.
Sophia: I'm always too late. The memories always seem so close, but they're so far away...
Sophia: All I can do is watch... and it's all so meaningless.
Lyria: I don't think so!
Sophia: Lyria...
Lyria: I guess you're right about us not being able to change the past... but that's not all we are!
Lyria: I don't know my own past.
Lyria: I'd like to know more about it, but I don't see myself as unfortunate just because I don't.
Lyria: And I have all of you to thank for that... Even without a past, I have a future I can face with my friends.
Lyria: I guess you could think of it as something irreplaceable to go with an unchangeable past.
Sophia: ...
Imperial Soldier: Well? Did you find what you were looking for?
Vyrn: Wha? How did you get here?
Imperial Soldier: Unfortunately for you, I'm not the only member of the imperial army. My friends sensed trouble and came to help.
Imperial Soldier: This time I have reinforcements. Now you're going to tell us where that primal beast is!
Sophia: I still can't do that.
Imperial Soldier: I see... Then we'll just have to make you talk!
Sophia: I don't think so! You see, I found something that I can still do...
Sophia: So I can't lose here!

Past and Present: Scene 4

(Captain)'s crew forces the imperial soldiers to retreat. Sophia finds meaning in her ability to see the pasts of primal beasts and realizes what she must do.



(Captain)'s crew successfully drives away the imperial soldiers.
Then, Sophia makes an unexpected request.
Lyria: That sleeping primal beast?
Sophia: Yes. I want you to absorb it.
Vyrn: Why all of a sudden? I thought you would be against that for sure.
Sophia: I think I've been forgetting something important.
Sophia: The point of my ability to see the past isn't to save people of past days but rather to guide people into the future.
Sophia: No matter how tragic, the past can't be changed...
Sophia: But if we can only keep moving forward...
Sophia: Then I think even the ones we couldn't save in the past will head right into the future with us.
Sophia: I think the reason we Zeyens can see the past isn't to mourn what's behind us, but to build a better future.
Lyria: That's right! I think so too!
Sophia: And I don't think we should leave that primal beast here either.
Sophia: One day we'll reach the Island of the Astrals, and we should bring that beast there with us.
Vyrn: Heh-heh! Now that's a good idea! Don't you think so, (Captain)?
And so Lyria absorbs the sleeping primal beast, and the crew continues its journey toward the Island of the Astrals.
As Sophia leaves this place behind, she wears an expression of cheerful confidence.

When Redluck meets Sophia, he kneels before her, expressing his gratitude for all the Zeyen faith has done for him. From his story, Sophia realizes that getting lost along her pilgrimage may actually lead to helping more people, which makes her feel much better about all her detours.



Many followers of Zeyen go on pilgrimages across the skies.
They consider the remaining scars of the War to be sacred and meet many a skyfarer as they journey between them.
That is how two fellow believers, Sophia and Redluck, coincidentally ended up joining (Captain)'s crew.
Redluck: Could it be... You must be Sophia!
Sophia panics when she sees Redluck addressing her on bended knee on the deck.
Sophia: Ah... Please stand up! There's no need to kneel!
Redluck: That will not do. You are a high priestess of Zeyen, are you not? I am duty bound to honor you.
Sophia: You... You've heard of me?
Redluck: How could I not! You are the granddaughter of the Zeyen archbishop! It is truly an honor to meet you.
Redluck: Gwahahaha! Bless the stars for guiding me here! The two of you are my saviors!
Sophia: But unlike my grandfather, the archbishop, I have never done anything worthy of such praise...
Redluck: You say that, but it's thanks to the teachings of Zeyen that I was able to cut ties with my criminal past.
Still genuflecting, Redluck begins to tell his life story.
He was severely injured during a fight, and saved by a Zeyen acolyte. He's been a changed man ever since.
Sophia: ...
Sophia listens to him intently. When he finishes speaking...
Redluck: That makes you all my saviors. You have shown me the path!
Sophia: No... The credit goes to the mother and child, and you yourself.
Sophia: All I've done out here is get lost... I haven't even finished my pilgrimage yet.
Redluck: That's exactly what I'm so grateful for.
Sophia: Huh?
Redluck: It's because you guys are always taking time away from your pilgrimages to help those of us in need that the number of Zeyen acolytes keeps growing.
Redluck: I was saved by someone you saved, and that's why I'm here today.
Redluck: Haha, by the way... Did you know that the archbishop you look up to so much had an awful sense of direction back in the day?
Sophia: No way! My grandfather?
Redluck: Guess he didn't share that, huh? Word is he took ten times longer than everyone else to get anywhere!
Sophia: My grandfather always focuses on the future and never shares much about his youth...
Redluck: What a shame that is. They say his getting lost all the time actually helped spread the teachings of Zeyen.
Redluck: So do you get it now? It's precisely because pilgrims like you and the archbishop take the scenic route that people like me are saved!
Redluck: Haha. That's why I see you all as my saviors.
Sophia: ...
Redluck: Whoa, it's almost time for the belly-battle! I gotta run!
And with that, Redluck disembarks and dashes toward the town.
Sophia: So grandpa used to be just like me... getting lost and saving people...
Sophia: I was uneasy when I first set out on my pilgrimage alone, but now I feel a bit braver.
Sophia: I'll do my best! It might take years—even decades—but I'll see this pilgrimage to the end!
The most unexpected encounter with Redluck the Zeyen monk ends up teaching Sophia something new about her grandfather.
She has a long way to go before reaching her grandfather's status, but it's reassuring to know that they started out the same way.
Determined to become a Zeyen archbishop one day, Sophia continues her pilgrimage with newfound vigor.
