Jewel of the Casino Liner
On a casino liner, the crew is approached by a rather timid woman who's soon called to the arena by an official. She turns out to be Therese, the idol duelist. To polish her skills, she joins the crew on their journey.
Katalina: Hmm... seems like that intel about the primal crystal was a load of bunk.
Vyrn: But I'm still glad we came. It's a great change of pace!
Lyria: Wow! Everything's so shiny and sparkly! I don't even know where to look!
Hoping to learn more about primal crystals, our heroes find themselves on a casino liner surrounded by other travelers.
The ship's interior is both lively and opulent, and the crew can hardly contain its excitement.
Lyria: Look, (Captain)! What's that?
Katalina: Lyria! Stay close! I doubt it was a good idea to even bring you here in the first place.
Vyrn: I think you got yourself a prime mom candidate, Lyria.
Vyrn: But we're sort of world travelers! You gotta take the leash off once in a while, you know? Let her run free!
Katalina: Wha? Mom? I'm not even...
Therese: Um... Excuse me.
Therese: What you said... is it true? That is to say... about traveling the world?
Vyrn: Yep. (Captain) and us, we're skyfarers.
Vyrn: We're looking for something out there in the world, or maybe it's better to say beyond it.
Therese: Then I'd like to ask you something, if you wouldn't mind. Would it be too much trouble... I mean, do you think I could go with—
Official: Therese! You need to hurry! You're almost up!
Therese: Oh! Sorry...
Vyrn: What was that?
Katalina: Is it just me, or are the people around us in a fervor? What's going on here?
Spectator: It's the ship's main event! Who're you and the lizard betting on in the duel?
Vyrn: Who you calling a lizard, chump? Wait, what d'you mean by who?
Spectator: Wha? You don't know? Ah, you must be first-timers.
Spectator: But I guess it's your lucky day, because I'll clue you in. The duels I'm talking about are battles in this ship's arena.
Spectator: The spectators bet on whichever duelist they want to win.
Lyria: What? Battles? But won't somebody get hurt?
Spectator: Maybe a little. But hey, that's part of the fun! Ha ha!
Spectator: Ah! It's starting! The duelists are coming out! So who'll it be?
Vyrn: What? Hey, (Captain)! Check it out! Isn't that the girl who was just talking to us?
Lyria: But check out all the muscles on the other one... Looks like quite a beast!
Vyrn: Aw, c'mon! How is this a fair fight? Who in their right mind would bet on the girl here?
Spectator: Ha ha! How little you know. Just watch. They're about to start!
Katalina: I can't believe it!
Duelist: What a pathetic display! It'll take more than some muscles attached to a big chunk of stupid to best me!
Duelist: Lovely audience! I hope you're feeling fired up! That was just a taste of what's to come! Sit back and enjoy the show!
Vyrn: Wait, what? Is that really the girl from earlier?
Spectator: Ha ha! Bet that threw you for a loop, eh? That woman is none other than Therese, our dueling idol!
Spectator: Whooo! You couldn't ask for a more lovely bloom of azure to adorn a gaming ship! Hey, Therese! You're the best!
Katalina: That can't be the same woman. What in the heck is happening?
Therese: Um... hey!
Vyrn: Whoa! You're the girl from earlier. Therese, right?
Therese: I was hoping we could, um, finish our talk from earlier...
Therese: Do you think I could, maybe, you know, join you on your journey?
Therese: I can't believe I actually said it!
Katalina: Why? If you don't mind me asking.
Therese: I think you might have seen, but I'm a duelist.
Therese: I've still got a lot to learn though, and I'm not sure whether I'm even entertaining my audience...
Vyrn: Are you kidding? A lot to learn? You're being modest. I mean, you were so into your show earlier.
Therese: Cut it out! It's like... once the duel starts, a switch flips inside me...
Therese: Anyway, I just want to be a better duelist!
Therese: For that, I need a lot of experience. And I hope to one day challenge some legendary duelists.
Katalina: Hm? Legendary?
Therese: Yes. I've only heard rumors, but...
Therese: Apparently they're not only great fighters, they really know how to give the crowd a great show.
Vyrn: I see. Legends, huh? What do you think, (Captain)?
Choose: Sure, why not?
- Sure, why not?
- Somebody's dreaming.
Vyrn: Ha ha! Knew you'd say that. We're a bunch of dream chasers ourselves.Choose: Somebody's dreaming.
Therese: Oh... um...
Vyrn: But it's not like we're any different. Right, (Captain)?Continue 1
Therese: So... uh, I guess...
Lyria: Yeah! We can be dreamers together!
Therese: Thank you so much! I'm, uh... I'm so happy to hear that!
Vyrn: Still, I'm having trouble believing she doesn't have a twin or something...
Gambler: What sort of scam are you tryin' to pull here?
Flimflam Man: What? C'mon, bro! Hate the game not the player!
Katalina: Looks like somebody's unhappy.
Vyrn: What's with you, Therese?
Vyrn: Eh... Oh! Hey!
Therese: You there.
Flimflam Man: Wha?
Therese: You dare disgrace the sanctity of the duel? I do hope you weren't expecting to escape punishment for that.
Flimflam Man: Eek! Please! Spare me!
Lyria: Oh my... You're really something, Therese!
And so the beautiful duelist Therese, the pride of the casino liner, joins our heroes.
The crew continues its journey, in search of dreams waiting beyond the furthest known reaches of the sky.
Pride of a Duelist
The casino liner is bustling with the triumphant return of the idol duelist. Since it's her first duel in a while, the crew members are nervous. They sense someone watching them. When monsters suddenly appear, Therese switches to battle mode.
Vyrn: Wow, look at this! The casino liner is bustling as always! Isn't this exciting, (Captain)?
Vyrn: Hey, Therese! The casino liner is roaring at the triumphant return of their idol duelist!
Therese: Ahh! Wh-what should I do? I'm starting to get nervous!
Therese: (Captain), do you think I'll be able to live up to my fans' expectations?
Vyrn: Come on, Therese! You're so tense you look like you've forgotten how to walk! You get nervous so easily!
Vyrn: As shy as she is, it's almost unbelievable how she changes when she starts dueling! Right, (Captain)?
Therese: Isn't this skirt a bit too short? Do I look weird? Oh! This is so embarrassing!
Lyria: It's okay! You look great in that! Keep calm, Therese!
Katalina: Anyone else feel that?
Rackam: Oh... Did you notice too?
Katalina: Yeah, someone was watching us, but they seem to be gone now. Still, it's pretty creepy.
Rackam: What do you want to do, (Captain)? Want to check it out?
Katalina: Hm. So it's not a mistake. I'm sure that someone, or something, is watching us.
Rackam: Hey, Therese. You know all about the casino liner, right? Do you have any idea who might be watching?
Therese: Um... An idea? I'm sorry. I don't know either...
Katalina: I guess that means we'll have to let it go for now.
Vyrn: Look, (Captain)! Something is coming! A monster!
Katalina: Ugh... I can't believe a monster would show up here. Someone clearly set this up.
Therese: No way... Monsters in the casino with so many people?
Therese: If you interfere with the duels, I'll show you no mercy! I'll crush you!
Vyrn: Looks like Therese has switched to battle mode! You gotta keep up, (Captain)!
Pride of a Duelist: Scene 2
The monsters were let loose by some thugs trying to fix the duel. When their plot is noticed, they unleash more monsters and flee. Therese is enraged by this insult to the sacred duel.
Lyria: You're amazing, Therese! You finished that fight as fast as I'd expect a duelist to!
Therese: Well, if I lost to monsters as weak as that, I'd have no chance in an actual duel.
Therese: I'm actually more worried about why the monsters were released... I have a bad feeling about this...
Vyrn: A bad feeling? Are you implying that this has something to do with the duel?
Rackam: Looks like our hunch was right. It seems like we don't have time to chit chat.
Katalina: Yeah, I guess you noticed too, (Captain). The guys hiding in the corner sent the monsters after us.
Rackam: All right! All that's left is to catch them and make them cough up the truth.
Thug 1: Damn it! All those monsters didn't stand a chance against them? This is starting to get out of hand...
Thug 2: This is terrible. If that duelist participates, our whole plot to fix the duel will all go to waste!
Rackam: So that's what you did... Hey, hooligans. That's some cheap plot you got there.
Thug 1: Whoa! When did you—Shoot! He heard everything! We got no choice! For now, we better...
Thug 2: Run for it!
Rackam: Hey! Wait! Wait, you thugs!
Katalina: I can't believe you let those low-level scumbags escape! Hmm? What's the matter, Therese?
Therese: They'll pay for this...
Therese: How dare they try to fix the duel! Those who defile the sacred duel must be crushed!
Lyria: Wow! Therese is burning up! Show them what duelists are made of!
Vyrn: All right! Let's bring those villains to justice, (Captain)!
Rackam: Oh, brother... What a bunch of trash! They sicced more monsters on us while running away!
Katalina: Yeah, for all the good it'll do them! (Captain)! Let's finish them off right away!
Lyria: (Captain)! Therese! Good luck!
Pride of a Duelist: Scene 3
After punishing the thugs, Therese, paralyzed with fear, is taken to the arena. Once there, she switches to her duelist mode and fights valiantly, captivating the audience.
Vyrn: Phew! You scared me there for a second, Therese! You went berserk, and I thought the thugs were goners.
Lyria: I agree. If (Captain) hadn't stopped you, those bad guys would have been toast!
Therese: Th-that's so embarrassing! When it comes to duels, I get tunnel vision...
Katalina: Ha ha. Based on the way those thugs panicked, they clearly thought you meant to put them down for good!
Katalina: Speaking of which, don't you need to get a move on? Isn't the duel about to start?
Rackam: Go on! The audience is chomping at the bit for you!
Therese: Ugh, of all the times for this to happen!
Therese: I... My legs are shaking...
Vyrn: Hey, are you okay? (Captain), let's take her to the arena!
Therese: W-wait! I'm not ready for this yet... How can I possibly duel in front of such a big audience?
Rackam: Wow, Therese! Listen to how the entire hall is cheering to see you! Remind them why they love you!
Katalina: Ha ha... I don't think you have to worry about that. Look at that smile! That's Therese's duelist mode if I've ever seen it!
Lyria: He he! Therese looks like she's enjoying this so much! She really must love dueling. Therese! You can do it!
Vyrn: Ha ha! You look pretty happy too, (Captain)! I'm betting you want to say that it's great seeing your friend shining so brightly!
After protecting the duel from a fixed game, the supremely confident Therese captivates the entire arena audience.
With one more victory under her belt, the beautiful duelist smiles proudly, satisfied with her accomplishment.
She then vows to her fans that she will one day return to the casino liner, and she heads off into the skies with her companions.
A Nostalgic Flavor
(Captain) and company trudged through the forest in search of Therese’s beloved cake shop. It seems they’d gotten themselves lost in their rush to dispatch the monsters. The shop was nowhere in sight. Therese was feeling more than a little down on herself. But her old friend De La Fille was there for her. It took a bit of work, but Therese regained her confidence.
Therese: !? Wait, we're here?!
De La Fille: Is something wrong? That's quite the shocked look...
(Captain)'s party touches down on a certain island.
Seeing the town spread out before them, Therese's eyes went as wide as plates.
Therese: Er... um, hi everybody! W-would you h-happen to maybe be free today?
Therese: Oh! I-I'm so sorry! I sh-shouldn't be standing around! I need to do the shopping and the... the...
Therese: Er, no... I mean, would you... do you maybe want to go and try some sweets today?
Lyria: Wow...! That would be amazing! The Sky Map! Let's go, (Captain)!
Vyrn: Wait a minute! Where the hell is the fire?
De La Fille: Hehehe... this one has always had a monster of a sweet tooth.
Therese: I, er... I wouldn't use the word "love", exactly... don't you like them too, Fille?! I know you like sweets!
De La Fille: Oh my! Well, erm... I do indeed! Would you expect anything less of royalty?!
Lyria: Well... let's be happy we're all in agreement!
Vyrn: So? Is that why you were looking like you got hit by a airship?
Therese: Er, no... actually, I've been here before. On a casino ship...
Therese: And, uh! There... there's a really good shop around here that I wanted to show you guys!
De La Fille: Oh my! That is NOT a bad idea! Both you and (Captain) have trustworthy palates.
Therese: R-really?! Me? I... I really don't... er...
Vyrn: Alright! What are we waiting around for?! Show us the way, Therese!
Therese: A-All right then! I'll do my get us there!
And so the party set out for the bakery that Therese was so taken by... or so they thought.
Therese: It's around here somewhere...
Vyrn: Er... correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure this is a forest.
Lyria: Erm... I bet we're almost there! Let's do it!
De La Fille: Hmph... this area doesn't seem to be bustling with people...
Therese: I-I'm so sorry! I thought I would just kinda... remember where it was...
Therese: Sigh... I really am sorry. I just got so excited...
De La Fille: That will be enough of that. There is absolutely nothing for you to apologize for.
De La Fille: Do you understand me? Yes, you couldn't find an animal in a zoo... but you also have a number of other redeemable qualit?
Lyria: Watch out! Behind you!
De La Fille: !?
Therese: Hah... hah... that was close. Is anybody hurt?
De La Fille: You worry needlessly. Thank you, Therese.
Therese: Hic... I'm s-so sorry! You wouldn't have had to suffer so if I weren't such a terrible guide!
Therese: I-I... I'm the worst. I don't know how you all can stand me...
Vyrn: Aw, c'mon... what's the harm? We're all safe, aren't we?
Lyria: Exactly! And all we need to do to find the shop is just look for it!
De La Fille: Oh, for heaven's sake! If you have time for that sort of talk, you have time to help me!
Therese: !? I... I've had this before! My word...
De La Fille: What do you think? I took it upon myself to remake after hearing you go on and on. And on.
Lyria: Amazing! That is absolutely divine!
Vyrn: Gulp... you're not a bad hand when it comes to cooking normal stuff, Fille!
De La Fille: And why would I be?! The royalty of the Gem Domain pride themselves on their dedication to the domestic arts!
De La Fille: Hehe... though I have a friend who's not exactly a spectacular chef...
Therese: Oh... it's so delicious. I could never make something like this...
Vyrn: Hah... so? You decided to help them out and bone up on your cooking?
De La Fille: Indeed... this friend of mine had an appalling diet for one whose body was their entire livelihood.
Therese: Sigh... I can't cook, I can't guide. I can't do anything right...
Vyrn: Oh, for the love of... all you need is a little focus! C'mon, Therese!
Therese: W-what? Oh... s-sorry! I, uh... I'm afraid I wasn't listening...
De La Fille: Hehe... now, now, Therese. So you're not the greatest at a few things. That's no problem at all.
De La Fille: Do you understand me? I know you. I know what you're incapable of...
De La Fille: But saving me in the forest... you were at your absolute best.
Therese: !? Fille...
Vyrn: Heh... where’s all that stuff you were talking a minute ago, Fille?
De La Fille: Eeegh!! Wh-what do you want?! You st-stay right where you are!
Therese: Hehe... actually. Fille doesn't like reptiles. At all...
Therese had come to terms with her foibles and finally had her confidence back.
With a little help from a friend, the shy duelist was finally coming into her own.
