Happy Birthday Cutscenes
# Link Text
1

Happy birthday.
That's one more step down life's long and winding road!
You have to experience all you can while you're young, and maybe... if you're lucky... you'll turn out to be one tough customer like me!

2

Happy birthday! One step closer to adulthood, eh?
It'd take a hundred of my old man days to equal just one of your youngster days!
So make sure to try lots of things while you're young, and live your life to the fullest!
You're gonna be a beast when you grow up! I guarantee it! Bet that puts your mind at ease, eh?

3

When you're a gray old man like me, you really start to feel how fast time flies.
They say that ten years can bring a lot of changes, but ten years starts to feel like just yesterday.
And days... they become like seconds. So, um...
I'll tell you something you've heard a thousand times—live each day to the fullest. You'll never get those days back!
Heheh. But happy birthday nonetheless! Thought I needed to end on a positive note.

4

Happy birthday, (Captain)!
How long has it been since I met you again?
You were pretty wet behind the ears at first, but you've grown to be quite a fine captain!
Yes indeed... You've really done me proud! I've been watching over you all this time after all... Just kidding!
I've only been able to do a handful of things for you, Captain.
I guess it's not easy to actually be useful to someone.
But you know... I'm a hopeless old man, though I've enjoyed my life. When you think about that, doesn't it take a load off your mind?
I was lucky enough to meet you, so I know life can be surprisingly full of good fortune.
So don't be afraid to keep charging forward! Young people are allowed to be rash and reckless after all!

Happy New Year!
Make sure you train as hard as you can! If you want iron muscles, you can't skimp a single day!

2

Yawn... Now that was a New Year's dream worth flexing to!
A gaggle of gorgeous gals were all vying for the chance to ring in the new year with some fireworks...
Wait. What if that wasn't a dream, but a vision of things to come?
All right, (Captain)! I'm gonna go grab some New Year's fireworks. Time to see if I can make this dream a reality!

3

Hey! Happy New Year! Who knew the first morning of the year could feel this good?
Training in this air gets me revved up!
You too, right? Yeah, thought so!
All right, then let's get to it! Drop and give me fifty! Go on! Drop!

4

Whew! Training's all done!
How was it, (Captain)? Isn't training while breathing in the clean air of the new year an amazing feeling?
Good health is an important asset to any skyfarer!
Whoa, what was that sound? Oh, was that your stomach growling?
After a good workout, your body craves food. That's proof that you're good and healthy.
All right, let's race to our rooms! If you win, I'll buy you any snack you want!
Hey! Get back here, (Captain)! You can't get a head start while I'm still in the middle of talking!
You'll be eating my dust in no time! Just you watch!

1

Ah, today's Valentine's, is it?
Oh? You got something for me too?
Don't want to inspire jealousy among the crew. But I have to keep it together.
I'm used to it. Gotten plenty of chocolates ever since I was young!

2

Oh? You're giving this to me?
These wouldn't happen to be chocolates for Valentine's Day, would they?
Gotcha... Honestly, I should be giving chocolates to you.
I'm perfectly aware of the names people call me, after all.
So thank you... Thank you so much! I'll think of you while I eat them!

3

Sigh... I'm a nervous wreck... Wonder if anybody'll give me chocolate this year...
Oh, ho! Cap'n! Did you need someone punched?
That's chocoate... For me?
Gulp... Whimper...
Ooh, sorry... It's just... I feel so glad I got some chocolate.
I'll get you a present back, so don't you worry! And it'll be a good one!

4

(All right. It's that time of year again...)
(Will I be okay? Can I do this?)
(Will I... get chocolate again this year?)
(Captain) finds Soriz in his room, deep in thought. The captain calls out to him from behind.
Whoooa!
You scared me to death! Don't sneak up on me like that, (Captain).
Y-yeah. I was just doing a bit of thinking. Did you need something from me?
(Captain) nods and hands Soriz some chocolate.
...!
Chocolate!
Thank you... Thank you so much! You made all my worries disappear!
Even if it's burned or has chili powder in the middle, I'll eat every last bite!
Ouch!
All right, I'm sorry! I wasn't trying to tease you! It was just an example! An example! Okay?

White Day Cutscenes

Happy White Day!
Hey! Here's a little thank-you gift from me. I hope you'll accept it!
I wasn't sure what to get you, but...
Huh? Instead of a present, you'd rather I stopped meddling in everyone's business?

2

Oh ho! There you are, (Captain)! This is for you!
Only fair to return the favor for Valentine's day!
Nothing strange. No tricks. Just some candy I thought you'd like.
Go on! Smile! You always look your best when you smile.

3

(Captain), take this! It's my way of saying thanks for the Valentine's Day chocolate!
That really meant a lot!
Next year too? I would love to get more, but that's not why I'm giving you these at all!
It's just you decided to give me a present out of the goodness of your own heart. And that lifts the spirits of an old man like me.
If I stop chasing girls then you'll give me chocolate every year? Gahaha! Great joke, Cap'n!

4

Hey, Captain! I was looking for you.
Today's White Day, don't you know? Heheh. I need to thank you for Valentine's Day.
So here, these are for you! I checked out the reviews beforehand and picked out some really delicious sweets.
Judging by the smell, I think they used a bit of alcohol in the manufacturing process.
Haha! Don't worry—it was all burned out. But you can still pretend and feel all grown up for a bit!
But if you're going to act like a grown up, make sure to eat them after a proper meal and brush your teeth afterward!

Trick or treat!
I've been waiting for this my whole darn life!
Nothing better than getting up to mischief at a Halloween party! Let's do this thing!

2

I'm formulating a battle plan right now. I can't afford to break concentration.
After all today's the day to play tricks on people and get away with it!
Huh? You're telling me to hand out candy instead?
You're just trying to take all the fun for yourself, aren't you, (Captain)? But I won't give in!
Why don't you join the strategy meeting? It'll be a Halloween to remember for the ages!

3

Oh, what're you doing there, Captain? You're not out getting Halloween candy?
Huh! The girls came by to tell you to watch me so I don't get up to anything naughty this year?
The sheer cruelty... I've been waiting for Halloween for too long to just sit around.
Hmm... Then how about this: you escort me while you're out to get candy.
Okay, okay! I won't do nothing bad! I'll only look at women if they walk in front me! Deal?

4

Munch... Oh, (Captain).
Give me just a moment. Munch... Gulp.
Mm, delicious!
Hm? I helped the people in the kitchen carry a few things, and they gave me some sweets as thanks.
I don't buy sweets for myself, but I enjoy eating them from time to time.
I never would have imagined pumpkin and butter could taste so fluffy...
Haha! You look like you're about to start drooling, Captain.
Don't worry, I'll help you out!
Let's go to the kitchen together and tell the people who made these the magic words.
You know the ones... Trick or treat!

Happy Holidays Cutscenes

Happy holidays!
Huh? You want a present? Let me tell you about this one spot that'll give you the perfect view of paradise, then.
You know, I'm not much of a Santa fan myself, but I do fancy that fluffy red outfit...

2

Hm? You're looking forward to seeing Santa Claus, eh? Haha! You're still but a child, I see.
At cold times like these, I want nothing more than to get a hard drink and hop in the hot springs.
Even better if there's a nice view to look at too, of course!
Sheesh. You're having that much trouble understanding my manly ideals?
Got it! Let me treat you to a holiday cake, then!

3

That old man Saint Nick is a pretty sweet guy. Always thinking about how to make others happy. I admire that.
Huh? I could learn a thing or two from him? You don't hold back, do ya, Cap'n?
Huh... So, uh... How about I buy you a cake! I'll even let you pick it out.
Let's get a huge one, so that way everybody on the ship'll get a slice!

4

I'm back.
Oh, if it isn't (Captain). Couldn't wait to see me, eh?
I just popped into town to pick up some liquor.
The holidays are all about good food. The guys in the kitchen have that part taken care of, but a good meal just isn't complete without a good drink, am I right?
Wait, you can't even drink yet, can you, (Captain)? This is all over your head.
Haha! Come now, there's no reason to pout when you have cake to look forward to! Kids like that stuff, right?
I look forward to the day when we can share a drink together.
Make sure to grow up big and healthy, all right? Hahaha!

The Explorer[edit]

Seeing Soriz in a sorry state of affairs aboard a Nordvjast fishing boat, Lyria mentions that her first impression of him was wrong. Seeing that Lyria has stopped working, an older fisherman comes in to reprimand her, but is intercepted by Soriz. Soriz reveals to the ever-positive Lyria that it is his dedication to achieving his goal that keeps him going through whatever hard times come his way.



The massive island of Nordvjast extends throughout a number of different Skydoms.
(Captain) and crew are aboard a research vessel studying the area and giving ice fishing a go.
Though nominally a research vessel, the ship's captain gave it a rough and ready air.
Lyria: Wow, the fishermen on board are all quite… characterful, aren't they?
Vyrn: They're really going for it, aren't they? But the stamping and shouting's a bit much, I think.
Lyria: Huh? Over there, on all fours… Is that Soriz?
(Captain) looks to where Lyria is pointing, and indeed sees Soriz on the floor on his hands and knees.
Soriz: C'mon, there's gotta be some around here. Someone must've dropped some spare change.
Soriz: All I need is a single rupie and I can make it back to the top. That'll show 'em!
Vyrn: Looks like he's lookin' for spare change. Shouldn't he be working?
Lyria: Poor Soriz, he's had nothing but bad luck recently.
Lyria: He's not acting like himself, to be honest I'm a little worried about him.
Soriz: Oh… Oh, oh, OH! A coin!
Soriz: Hahahah! Now I can start amassing my fortune! That'll wipe the smile of their faces!
(Captain) and the others work tirelessly day in and day out.
An exhausted Lyria trips while carrying her latest catch.
Lyria: Eek! Oh no, the fish!
Vyrn: H-hey, Lyria! are you OK?
Rough Fisherman: Hey, girlie! What'chu think yer doin'? We can't sell the fish if it's damaged!
Lyria: I-I'm sorry. I'll be more careful next time.
Rough Fisherman: NEXT TIME? Ye'll be lucky if I let there be a next time!
(Captain) sees that things are about to get out of hand with the fisherman, and steps in to protect Lyria.
However, before (Captain) can get to her Soriz stands in the way and grabs the fisherman by his arm.
Lyria: Ah! Soriz!
Soriz: Don't you dare raise your hand to a child. Now, go and think about what you've done wrong!
Rough Fisherman: Hey, that hurts! Let go of me arm! Ye're gonna break it!
Soriz: Heh! You act all tough when you're bullying a defenseless young girl, but now look at ya! Squirming like a worm on a hook!
Soriz: All right! I'm letting go, now beat it!
Rough Fisherman: Ugh! Stupid old man!
Lyria: Thank you so much, Soriz! And (Captain), I know you were about to protect me as well, so thank you to you too.
Soriz: No worries. Are you hurt? What was that guy thinkin'?
Lyria: Hee hee…
Soriz: Huh? Lyria, what're you laughin' at?
Lyria: It's just, the longer we're on this boat the more I realize my first impression of you was wrong.
Lyria: Hee hee, I first thought you were a bit scary, but you're really a nice guy!
Soriz: What? I think you've got it all wrong, Lyria.
Soriz: To be sure, life on this ship can be hard.
Soriz: But it's not enough to break my spirit!
Soriz: Not as long as I have my dream!
Soriz: I don't mind going through hard times like this if it means I get to live out my dream.
Soriz: (…That's right… I have to find the treasure in that hidden hot spring…)
Lyria: You're right! It's good to have something to work toward! We have a goal, too, you know!
Vyrn: That's right! We can't let this boat get in the way of our goal!
Vyrn: Heheh. C'mon, (Captain)! We got a trollkrabbe to catch!
(Captain) and crew's goal may be different to Soriz's…
But working together as friends they can overcome any obstacles in their way.
Not even the icy cold of Nordvjast or the salty demeanor of Captain Sanza could put a damper on the crew's spirits.

Search for Steam in the North[edit]

Soriz overhears that Eugen and Jin want to go back to Ginya, a secluded hot spring deep within Nordvjast, he tells them that they must go after what they want. Together they persuade (Captain) to return to Nordvjast, and Soriz is full of hopes that this time he will find the buried treasure.



It has been some time since the crew finished fishing for trollkrabbes in Nordvjast.
Eugen and Jin are talking about the last hot spring they visited, the secluded "Ginya" hot spring.
Eugen: I gotta say, I've never felt so relaxed as I did in that hot-spring.
Jin: I have to say I agree. The snowy vista, the bite of the cold air mixed with the warmth of the water, it was most pleasant.
Eugen: I wouldn't mind coming back here, if we ever get the chance.
Soriz: If we get the chance? What're you saying! If you put your mind to it you can force that chance to come!
Eugen: Soriz! You were listening?
Soriz: Of course! The moment I heard "Ginya" I knew I just had to join in.
Soriz: I was just thinking that I had to go back there soon as well!
Soriz: A hot spring in the farthest north… You don't get many chances to visit. That's why you have to make it happen yourself!
Eugen: I guess you're right. If we leave it to chance, who knows when we'll be back this way again?
Eugen: OK! Let's go ask (Captain) if we can go back there!
Soriz: Yeah! Hahahah, this is gonna be fun!
Soriz: (…I hope this time will be better than last time I was there…)
Soriz: (…The beautiful scenery's all good and well, but I need to get my hands on that treasure…)
Soriz: (…I can't wait to get there and start looking again…)
Soriz: All right! Let's set sail for Nordvjast!
Unable to resist Eugen and Soriz's burning desire to go back, (Captain) decides to return to Ginya.

Search for Steam in the North: Scene 2[edit]

On the way to Ginya, the hidden hot spring, (Captain) and crew are hit by a sudden and furious blizzard. To combat the cold Soriz suggests they keep moving, and so Eugen and Jin join him in running around the freezing Lyria and (Captain). Successfully making it through the blizzard, the crew once again starts making its way to the hot spring.



(Captain) and crew arrive once more on Nordvjast, and start to make their way to the secluded hot spring Ginya.
However before they can get there they are struck by a sudden blizzard.
Jin: Ugh! The weather was so clement before, what accursed magic is this blizzard?
Eugen: I can't see at all in this. There's no going forward, but it's too dangerous to go back, as well…
Soriz: You can't give up now! We're so close to Ginya!
Despite Soriz's red hot enthusiasm, the cold starts to get to Lyria and (Captain), who begin to lose consciousness.
Lyria: Oogh… I'm getting sleepy…
Eugen: Hey, Lyria! Pull yourself together! You can't fall asleep now!
Soriz: …I know!
Soriz: We need a way to warm up, right? Then how about this?
Soriz begins to undress.
Jin: Soriz, what're you…
Soriz: A caucus race! If we keep moving, then we won't get cold!
Eugen: …Oh, I get it! That might work!
Jin, Soriz, and Eugen start running around the others in an attempt to stay warm.
Soriz: Come on now, let's show this blizzard's who's boss! Faster! Faster! FASTER!
Eugen: Faster! Faster!
Jin: Faster! Faster!
Eventually (Captain) and Lyria join in and they are all kept warm by each others body heat.
Soriz: …Look! A break in the clouds!
Jin: Oh! The blizzard must nearly be over!
Soriz: OK! Ginya can't be far off now! Let's get going, full steam ahead!
Having successfully survived the blizzard, the crew once again make for the hidden hot spring.

Search for Steam in the North: Scene 3[edit]

(Captain) and crew arrive at the hot spring, and rush into the invitingly warm waters. Soriz, however, stays behind, and continues his search for the rumored buried treasure. His search leads him to one of the baths, where he is startled by the sudden appearance of Vyrn. The shock causes Soriz to faint, and he drifts off into a dreams of treasure.



Soriz: Outta the way!
A shocked attendant welcomes the weary (Captain) and crew who travelled through a blizzard to get to the hot spring.
Hot Spring Attendant: I must say I'm impressed you made it here through that blizzard! Please, warm yourselves in our perfectly heated waters!
Eugen: Thanks! I think we're gonna need a few hours in the water to de-frost us!
Eugen, Jin, (Captain) and the others all head toward the warming waters of the hot spring.
Soriz, rather than follow the rest of the crew, goes off in the opposite direction.
Soriz: (…The blizzard's covered the grounds around here with snow, that's gonna make this tricky…)
Soriz: (…Maybe I should give up? No! Never give up!…)
Soriz: (…Snow or no snow, the treasure's there just waiting to be found…)
Soriz: (…Now, where haven't I looked yet? Ah, this looks like a great place to start…)
Soriz: (…I wonder what I'll find down here…)
The excited Soriz finds himself near one of the baths.
Soriz: I'm gonna be so rich!
Soriz pushes his way through a thicket which it turns out was surrounding on of the hot spring baths.
Black-haired Woman: Heehee, who would've thought we'd find the treasure in the hot spring?
Blonde Woman: I know, it's the last place I would've looked!
Black-haired Woman: Ah, but this hot water feels sooo good!
Blonde Woman: Hey, watch where you're splashing!
Soriz:
Soriz: C'mon, Soriz, this is no time to daydream! This treasure won't find itself!
Soriz: Almost there!
Soriz bursts through the thicket into the hot spring area.
???: Aah, this is nice…
Soriz: !
That voice… Is that…
???: Aaaaaahhh…
Soriz: !
Soriz looks about wildly for the owner of the voice, scared that his treasure hunt has been found out.
Soriz: Wha!
???: Who's there?
Soriz: …Of all the!
Vyrn: Oh, Soriz, it's you! I didn't see you come in.
Soriz: Wha! What're you doing here?
Vyrn: What do you think I'm doing? The water feels reeeally good!
Soriz: Uh…
Soriz faints and falls into the water.
Thoughts of the buried treasure bring a smile to his face even as he lies unconscious.
