An Ambitious Street Performer
The crew meets the somewhat clumsy performer Ulamnuran through a chance encounter. He wants to one day show the Astrals his skill, so (Captain) and company welcome him with open arms.
While in town for a little shopping, (Captain) and company spot a young Harvin man giving a performance.
Jaw agape, Lyria stares transfixed by his many tricks and claps for him when he finishes.
???: Thank you very much! You know, nothing makes me happier than a satisfied audience.
Lyria: Incredible! How did you know which card they would pick?
???: A good magician never reveals his tricks! Heh-heh... Knowing would spoil the fun anyway.
Lyria: Hmm... I still wonder how you did it. It was so amazing!
Vyrn: Great job, dude! And what a crowd! I can see why they were here though!
???: Would you expect anything less from Ulam, the world's greatest performer?
Vyrn: Whoa! The world's greatest?
???: You heard me! The Ulam's short for Ulamnuran! Remember that name, because one day every skyfarer will recognize it!
Lyria: Wow! You're amazing, Ulam!
Ulamnuran: Hehe... Go on! I've never been one to turn down a compliment!
Vyrn: Hmm... I think we could learn a thing or two from this guy, (Captain).
Vyrn: We are bound for Estalucia, right?
Vyrn: Heh-heh. Well, if we really wanna reach the end of the sky, then we better assemble the greatest crew we can get!
Ulamnuran: Estalucia, huh? Isn't that supposed to be where the Astrals live? They say no one's ever been there before...
Lyria: Yes! And that's where we plan on going.
Ulamnuran: No way! That is too perfect!
Ulamnuran: Please! You gotta let me join your crew!
Lyria: Sure thi—wait, what!
Vyrn: Yeah, come again? Gettin' a little head of yourself aren't ya, bub?
Ulamnuran: Well, how can I call myself the world's best performer if the Astrals don't even know who I am?
Ulamnuran: So let's go to Estalucia together! I'll put smiles on their Astral faces!
Vyrn: Hmm... He talks a big game, but what do you think, (Captain)?
Choose: Sounds fun.
- Sounds fun.
- You any good in a fight?
Ulamnuran: I know, right? And the fun won't stop while I'm around!Choose: You any good in a fight?
Ulamnuran: Hehe. Don't let my looks fool you. I've been on my own for a while now, so I can handle myself better than most.Continue 1
Vyrn: Well, that settles it! Looking forward to seeing what you can do, Ulam.
Lyria: Me too! Welcome aboard, Ulam!
Ulamnuran: The pleasure's all mine!
Ulamnuran: Now that that's out of the way, let me go and get my stuff from the inn. You just wait he-Ouch!
Ulamnuran: Who the heck put a wall here?
Vyrn: Ouch! You just ran smack into it! You gotta watch where you're going...
Ulamnuran: Yeah, yeah. Just wait right there!
Vyrn: Oof... That was a nasty fall! You okay, Ulam?
Ulamnuran: I'm fine! Right as rain!
Lyria: Oh! Ulam! Something fell out of your pocket!
Vyrn: Whoops... And there he goes. I guess I'll pick it up and give it back to him later.
Shortly after parting from the crew, Ulamnuran manages to get himself lost, only relocating (Captain) and the others the following afternoon.
Ulamnuran: Heh, I'm back, just like I said I would be! The world's greatest performer, Ulamnuran, at your service!
Ulamnuran, a clumsy young Harvin who claims to be the best of the best when it comes to putting on a show.
Whether he'll actually find fame among the Astrals remains to be seen.
A Smile on Every Face
Ulamnuran drags the crew to a remote mountain village, but they're attacked by monsters before arriving.
Vyrn: So, um... Ulam. Where's the village? It's just mountain after mountain here.
Ulamnuran: Hmm... According to the map, it should be a little further ahead.
Lyria: Wait, you got that map while you were performing in town, right?
Ulamnuran: Sure did. From a peddler.
Ulamnuran: He was complaining about how street performers never go to his hometown because it's too deep in the mountains.
Ulamnuran: And I can't ignore a call for help like that. I gotta show them my performance!
Vyrn: Geez... I've heard of dedication to your craft, but this is a little much...
Ulamnuran: Um... Well, all we have to do is go past this boulder and—ouch!
Lyria: Whoa! Are you okay? I saw you hit your head on the tree.
Ulamnuran: D-don't worry! I'm okay!
Vyrn: Are you sure? Your head made a pretty loud bang, and now you're all teary eyed.
Ulamnuran: Never mind me. Just keep your eyes open! I hear there are monsters in these mountains.
Vyrn: Look who's talking... Let's just keep moving. Ulam, watch your step!
Ulamnuran: Yeah, I—Aahh!
Vyrn: What did I just say! You gotta watch out for tree roots or—whoa! Did you really just run right into a monster?
A Smile on Every Face: Scene 2
The journey to the village ends up being a long one. The crew tries to take a break when Lyria gets fatigued, but monsters interrupt the respite.
Lyria: Pant... Pant...
Ulamnuran: Lyria, are you tired? Well, I guess we have been walking for quite a while now.
Lyria: I... I'm fine, honest. I can keep going!
Vyrn: Don't force yourself. (Captain) is worried about you too.
Lyria: Thank you, (Captain). Then I'd like to rest a little.
Ulamnuran: Hmm... According to the map, we should see the village any second now.
Vyrn: Hey! Did you hear that sound?
Ulamnuran: Of course! I hope it's the villagers...
Ulamnuran: Oh, no you don't! (Captain), we can defeat these guys in no time!
Vyrn: Let's go!
A Smile on Every Face: Scene 3
Vyrn discovers that Ulamnuran has been reading the map upside down the whole time, but they eventually make it to the village despite the set back. Ulamnuran performs to the delight of the villagers.
Ulamnuran: Gah, with all these monsters about, I can't even look at the map in peace!
Vyrn: It's so weird that we aren't there yet! It seems like it'll be night by the time we make it.
Vyrn: Hey. Ulam, lemme see that map.
Ulamnuran: Here you go.
Ulamnuran: This is the town we were at this morning. If the sun is in this direction, the village should be down this path.
Vyrn: Wait a minute...
Lyria: What's wrong, Vyrn?
Vyrn: I can't believe it! Ulam! You had the map upside down!
Vyrn: Geez... No wonder we still haven't reached the village.
Ulamnuran: W-wait! The map! Let me see it again!
Vyrn: I told you... This is the town and this is the village... And...
Ulamnuran: You're right...
Ulamnuran: I'm sorry, everyone!
(Captain) confiscates the map from Ulamnuran before guiding everyone in the actual direction of the village.
Night falls before they reach the village, so Ulamnuran decides to perform in the morning.
Ulamnuran: Step right up! Don't miss the performance of the great Ulam, finest performer in the sky!
Boy: Whoa! How'd you do that?
Girl: Wow! Can I see that again?
Villager: That's wonderful! Wow, I have no idea how he did that magic trick.
Vyrn: Nice! Ulam is killing it!
Lyria: Yeah! Both the adults and the children are having so much fun. Ulam is great!
Vyrn: Yeah... If only he weren't so clumsy...
Despite complaining, Vyrn can't take his eyes off of Ulamnuran's show.
The performer himself smiles broadly, reveling in the joy of a happy audience.
The Narcissist and the Busker
A wealthy young girl is so impressed by Ulamnuran's performance that she demands he become her personal entertainer. When he says he'd rather entertain people throughout the sky, she orders her guards to take him back to her house by force.
With sights set on Estalucia, (Captain) has recruited the street performer Ulamnuran into the crew.
He always entertains those around him with his clever tricks, and he performs as they travel and take on missions.
Ulamnuran: Come one, come all, for the best show in the sky! The great Ulam's amazing street performance is about to begin!
Ulamnuran: I'll start with some juggling! One club, two clubs, three, four, five clubs!
Man: Wow, that's amazing! I can't believe he can do that!
Ulamnuran: And now... Here we go!
While continuing to juggle several items, Ulamnuran steps onto a rolling ball.
Rich Girl: Fantastic!
Ulamnuran's amazing performance captures the attention of many passersby, who each applaud his skill.
One girl is especially enamored with his exciting tricks.
Ulamnuran: Thank you, thank you! You've been a wonderful audience!
Ulamnuran finishes his performance to uproarious applause from the audience. The girl comes over to talk to him.
Rich Girl: Hey! What are you gonna show us next?
Ulamnuran: Sorry, but today's show is over. I've got to get back to the ship.
Rich Girl: No! You can't stop now. You've gotta show me more!
Rich Girl: I have a brilliant idea! You can come back to my house and be my personal jester!
Ulamnuran: Hmm... I appreciate the offer and all, but my aim is to make the whole world smile.
Ulamnuran: And that means I can't stay in just one place forever.
Ulamnuran: But I'm glad you enjoyed my little show so much!
Rich Girl: What did you just say? You dare to refuse my request?
Ulamnuran: Sorry, but I'll come back some day!
Rich Girl: No... That's totally unacceptable! To me, servants!
The girl, furious that someone would dare refuse her, signals to the bodyguards watching from nearby.
Rich Girl: Hehe. I'll just have to take you home by force!
Ulamnuran: Wha? Wait! You can't do that! Stop!
Vyrn: Hey, Ulam! We thought you'd be finishing up your show, so we came to see you!
Ulamnuran: Ah! Great timing! (Captain), help me!
Lyria: Huh? Ulam, what's going on?
Ulamnuran: I'll explain later! Help me deal with these lugs first!
The Narcissist and the Busker: Scene 2
While the crew sleeps, some thugs sneak onto the Grandcypher and attempt to kidnap Ulamnuran. The wealthy girl still wants to claim him for herself.
After (Captain) and the crew defeat the girl's guards, they return to the ship.
Vyrn: Man... Ulam, you had some pretty rotten luck back there.
Ulamnuran: Tell me about it... Never thought anyone would try to kidnap me...
Ulamnuran: I'm happy that she enjoyed the performance, but to think she could turn so violent all of a sudden!
Lyria: No kidding...
It's getting late now, so let's get some sleep and forget about this whole thing!
Ulamnuran: (Captain), thanks for helping me out back there!
Ulamnuran: Good night!
Lyria: Good night, Ulam.
Later that night (Captain) and the crew are suddenly awakened by the sound of Ulamnuran yelling.
Ulamnuran: Argh! Wh-what are you guys doing? Let go of me!
Vyrn: Whoa, what's going on? Ulam? Are you okay?
(Captain) and the crew rush toward the noise, and they find a group of thugs trying to take Ulamnuran away.
Vyrn: Stop right there, scumbags! What are you trying to do with Ulam?
Rich Girl: Didn't you hear me before, lizard? He's going to be my personal jester!
Ulamnuran: Ah! You're the girl from earlier!
Ulamnuran: What are you trying to do? You can't just kidnap people!
Rich Girl: Grrr... Stop resisting! Don't you get it? Father hardly ever lets me out of the house to see entertainers!
The girl, frustrated to the verge of tears, tells the crew about how she's usually locked away within her mansion.
Ulamnuran: Ah... That does sound unfortunate...
Ulamnuran: I guess that's why you were so excited to see my performance.
Vyrn: Whoa, Ulam, you can't seriously be sympathetic to this girl! She tried to kidnap you!
Ulamnuran: Yeah, you're right, Vyrn! I travel throughout the sky to bring smiles to all skyfarers!
Ulamnuran: And one day I'll bring those same smiles to the Astrals themselves! That's why I can't stay here with you!
Rich Girl: Grrr... Just come quietly already! You're not getting away!
The Narcissist and the Busker: Scene 3
The girl's father apologizes to the crew and reprimands his daughter for causing trouble. On the way back to the Grandcypher, Ulamnuran is struck with inspiration and promises to tell (Captain) more about his new idea later.
After (Captain) and the crew fight off the thugs, they accompany the girl back to her manor.
Rich Girl's Father: I'm dreadfully sorry. I can't believe my daughter caused you so much trouble.
Young lady, apologize to these people now!
Rich Girl: Sniff... I... I'm sorry...
Ulamnuran: Heh... It's okay—as long as you never do anything like this again.
Ulamnuran: You should give your daughter a little more freedom. She was frustrated always being kept inside, and this all happened as a result.
Rich Girl: ...!
Rich Girl's Father: Th-thank you for your kind words. It's admirable that you care so much about my daughter.
Rich Girl's Father: By way of apology, if there's anything that I can ever do for you, I'd be happy to help.
(Captain) and the crew say their farewells to the man and his daughter and then leave the mansion.
Vyrn: What's up? Why are you so quiet all of a sudden? Oh, are you tired?
Ulamnuran: Huh? Oh no, I'm fine. I am a little worn out, but...
Ulamnuran: I've got an idea. I'll tell you guys about it once I've worked on it a little more.
Ulamnuran: Hehe. Just you wait! It's going to be brilliant!
Although caught up in a rich girl's unpredictable bout of selfishness, Ulamnuran has gained inspiration from the ordeal.
And he's sure his plan—hatched by the greatest performer in the sky no less—is sure to shock and delight (Captain) and the crew.
For now, though, he sets to work perfecting his scheme.
Ulamnuran tells the crew that he plans to invite other performers to put on a circus. (Captain) and the others like the idea and agree to help him.
One day, Ulamnuran tells (Captain) that he has something to announce, so the pair assembles the crew.
Lyria: What's wrong, Ulam? Has something happened?
Ulamnuran: Well... I told (Captain) a while ago that I had an idea, didn't I?
Ulamnuran: I've worked out the details, so now I'd like to present it to you all.
Ulamnuran begins to talk, a serious look on his face.
Ulamnuran: Street performances are things that people see while they're going somewhere or getting ready to do something.
Ulamnuran: The audience members are going about their days with other aims and intentions, so it's a coincidence to them when they run into a street performer.
Ulamnuran: You know, I personally just think of it as an interesting quirk of the business...
Ulamnuran: But it also means that children who can't go into town freely or people who live in faraway towns can't come to see the show.
Ulamnuran: That's a shame, right? So I was wondering if I could do something to bring the show to more people...
Vyrn: Ah, so that's what you've been pondering lately!
Ulamnuran: That's right. And I've finally thought of a way to do it!
Lyria: Oh! What's the plan?
Ulamnuran: We need to reverse the way people think about street performers! They need to come to town specifically to see a performance!
Ulamnuran: If we advertise performances a while in advance, we can get people to come.
Ulamnuran: We'll use a town square, and we'll recruit other performers to join the show!
Ulamnuran: It's gotta be flashy and lively—so we're gonna have ourselves a circus!
The crew, hearing Ulamnuran talk so excitedly about his plan, are caught up in the moment.
Wow! It sounds so fantastic!
Carmelina: Would it be okay if I performed too?
Ulamnuran: Of course! Let's put on a great circus show, Carmelina!
Carmelina: Woohoo! I'm so excited!
Ulamnuran: Oh, (Captain). I have a special request for you.
Ulamnuran: I want to contact other performers, so I was wondering if you could fly me to them.
Vyrn: Ah, I see! Let's help him out, (Captain)!
Ulamnuran: Thank you so much! I'll make sure you all get front-row seats!
Lyria: Oh! I'm so excited to see the circus!
Thus (Captain) and the crew set out on a journey to recruit performers from all over the sky to take part in Ulamnuran's show.
It's Showtime!: Scene 2
The animal tamer that Ulamnuran wants to perform in the circus has retired, but she offers to teach him her skills instead. (Captain) and company decide to help with the training.
Ulamnuran guides (Captain) and the crew to an island where a famous animal tamer dwells. But after locating her, Ulamnuran receives quite a shock.
Ulamnuran: Oh... So you're retired from show business now?
Animal Tamer: I'm dreadfully sorry. I'm just too old to be performing anymore. I hope your circus goes well.
Ulamnuran: Thank you, ma'am. It's a shame though... You were such a fantastic animal tamer.
Animal Tamer: Oh, you flatter me! It's so nice to hear that from a fellow performer... Wait, I know!
The old woman, excitement palpable, offers to teach Ulamnuran the ins and outs of being an animal tamer.
Ulamnuran: No way! That would be amazing!
Animal Tamer: But I should warn you that I'm a strict teacher! Think you can keep up, Ulamnuran?
Ulamnuran: Hehe! I'm the greatest performer the sky has ever seen—you don't have to worry about me!
Ulamnuran: I'll carry on your art and bring it to a whole new generation of fans!
Thus Ulamnuran begins to learn the ways of the animal tamer.
(Captain) and the crew decide to tag along just in case any of the beasts get out of hand.
It's Showtime!: Scene 3
Ulamnuran's circus finally begins, and the large audience enjoys the show immensely. But Ulamnuran isn't satisfied and vows to further polish his skills for the next one.
After Ulamnuran finishes learning how to be an animal tamer, he finds the rest of his performers without a hitch.
They rent a square to perform in and advertise the event. Finally the day of the circus's first performance arrives.
Ulamnuran: Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls! Welcome to the show!
Ulamnuran: We've got magicians, acrobats, and all kinds of other wonderful performances for you to enjoy!
The opening performers take the stage and demonstrate their skills, and the crowd gets more and more excited.
Ulamnuran: Next! It's the star performer of the imperial court, the wonderful Carmelina!
Carmelina: Hello, everyone! How are you enjoying the show?
No one in the crowd can keep their eyes off of Carmelina's breathtaking acrobatic stunts.
Everyone is speechless as she finishes her last daring trick, but they erupt into massive applause when she lands into a bow.
Carmelina: Ta-da! Next up, it's our greatest performer, Ulamnuran!
Ulamnuran steps onto the stage, inspired by Carmelina's opening act.
He juggles balls while simultaneously walking a tightrope.
Ulamnuran: Woo-hoo! Now let's make things a bit more interesting!
He adds knives to his daring juggling performance, making the crowd gasp.
Ulamnuran: It's time for the grand finale! All right, you guys, you're on!
He throws the knives out, severing the ropes that are holding back his animals.
He demonstrates many fantastic tricks involving the animals—the greatest of which is having them jump through rings of fire—and the crowd goes wild.
Lyria: Wow! Ulam, that's amazing!
Vyrn: Haha, his performance is even better than usual!
Ulamnuran: Thank you, thank you! And now for my encore...
The crowd goes crazy for his amazing stunts, and the circus performance is over in what seems like no time at all.
Ulamnuran: I'm sad to have to go, but alas the curtain must fall on our little show.
Ulamnuran: But save your farewells! We'll be back before you know it!
Carmelina: See you soon, everybody!
Thus the curtain falls on Ulamnuran's much-loved circus.
Lyria: The circus was such a blast! Well done, Ulam.
Ulamnuran: Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it.
Ulamnuran: But I'm sure I can do much better than that!
Ulamnuran: I've got to keep practicing for next time!
Ulamnuran, the legendary performer, seeks to bring smiles to the world through his performances.
For him, the success of his circus is just one more step on the way to his dreams.
Maybe one day he really will bring a smile to the faces of the Astrals too.
Live and Let Laugh
Ulamnuran learns of Ludmila's inability to stop laughing and takes it upon himself to cure her. Although he ultimately fails for the time being, his efforts have opened up new avenues for his street performances.
Ulamnuran: Good, good. This new technique'll do just fine! I'm a genius if I do say so myself.
Ulamnuran is practicing his craft on the deck of the airship.
Ludmila: Hahaha, new mushrooms! Huh? Mmpftt... What's with that hat... Snort.
And who else should pass by but Ludmila.
Ulamnuran: (Oh? A spectator?)
Ulamnuran: (Well, I can't let her leave disappointed! Time to put on a show!)
Ludmila: His hat... All it reminds me of is that mushroom. Hahaha.
Sensing Ludmila's gaze on him, Ulamnuran beautifully performs difficult tumble after difficult tumble.
Ulamnuran: Ta-da! What do you think?
Ludmila: Heh heh. It was great! You're a street performer? Haha...
Ulamnuran: Hiyah! I can do things like this too!
Ludmila: Well, isn't that something? Hahah... Ahaha...
Ulamnuran: Dun-dun! This spectacle featuring the great Ulam is just getting started!
Ludmila: Ahaha! P-please continue! Hehe.
Ulamnuran: (Um... I think she's enjoying it, but...)
Ulamnuran: (Something doesn't seem quite right about this girl.)
Ludmila: Hahaha-huh? Is it over already? Pfft...
Ludmila's abnormal way of laughing throws the tumbler off his game, and he stops his practice session.
He approaches the overenthusiastic girl to have a word.
Ulamnuran: Um, thanks for watching my performance!
Ulamnuran: The name's Ulamnuran, greatest street performer in all the wild blue yonder!
Ulamnuran: Wowzers. You're a regular laugh machine, but can I ask you something? Are you actually enjoying yourself?
Ludmila: Y-yeah, I am. Hehehe... I'm sorry—Ahaha!
Ludmila apologizes through bouts of laughter, which only throws Ulamnuran into further confusion.
Ulamnuran: Huh? I don't get it. What are you apologizing for?
Ludmila: Basically I ate a weird mushroom, and now
I—yuk, yuk—can't stop laughing!
Ulamnuran: Ah, so that's the story. Guess it wasn't because my tricks were actually interesting to watch.
Ludmila: Hahaha. No, no! It definitely was! Snort.
Ulamnuran: Hehe... Well, good then. Thank you! Er...
Ludmila: I'm Ludmila. Ahaha. Nice to meet ya-ha-ha.
Ulamnuran: Same to you, Ludmila!
Ludmila: The pleasure's all—Pffft!
Ludmila: Sorry. Haha. Didn't mean to laugh.
Ulamnuran: (I can see she doesn't mean to laugh, but it comes out anyway. That's no fun at all.)
Ludmila: Mmpff... What is it? Hehe...
Ulamnuran: I said I was the greatest street performer in the skies, didn't I?
Ulamnuran: I'll cure you of your laughing fits.
Ulamnuran: That way you can smile for reals when you get a load of my act!
Ludmila: Hoohoohoo. That would be fantastic!
Ludmila: Please—hehehe—give it your best shot.
Ulamnuran: You betcha. I got this!
Ulamnuran: Hm... Wonder if scaring the laughter out of her like you'd do with hiccups would work.
Ulamnuran: Behold! I have in my hand a deck of plain ol' cards. Would the lady kindly choose one?
Ludmila: Bwahaha! Okay, this one—
The instant Ludmila pulls a card from the deck, a bird comes flying out at her from Ulamnuran's hands.
He looks at the startled Ludmila with a victorious smile.
Ulamnuran: Bam! Spooked the laughter right out of you, didn't I? What works for hiccups surely works for the giggles too.
Ulamnuran: See? I don't hear any—
Ludmila: Bwahaha! Ahahaha!
Ulamnuran: Darn. Spoke too soon. Well, how about an awe-inspiring magic trick?
Ulamnuran: Just an ordinary wand, right? A one! A two! And a three!
Ludmila: Mmph... Hnngh... Ahahaha!
Ludmila's laughter shows no signs of stopping but neither does the great Ulam.
Ulamnuran: Nope, that won't do it either. I'm not done yet though!
Ulamnuran: I have here three colored balls. Watch as I toss them high into the air. Hah!
Ludmila: Amazing! Hahahaha!
Ulamnuran: Holy moly! Laughing so hard you're literally shaking! Shoot, this isn't a comedy act.
The street performer grumbles in melancholy.
For all of his talents, the sound of laughter will not abate.
Ulamnuran: Hrrm... All that's left is to intentionally bomb the set with a dad joke.
Ulamnuran takes a deep breath to steel himself. Flames of determination ignite in his eyes.
He casts off his pride and screams out to the world.
Ulamnuran: Ever had toadstool? It stinks!
Ludmila: Huh? Uh, bwuh?
Ulamnuran: Yes! Did it work?
Ludmila: Mmmpph... Hnnk... Huff...
Ulamnuran: Are you kidding me? Ludmila! She laughed all the air out of her lungs!
Ulamnuran: (Captain)! Someone! Help!
Thanks to Ulamnuran's quick response, Ludmila is fine.
He has time to reflect when all is said and done.
Finally the Harvin comes to a decision.
Ulamnuran: I'll do it. I'll come up with a fantastic act to end Ludmila's laughing fits once and for all!
With renewed zeal, Ulamnuran tackles many challenges to expand his repertoire.
Meanwhile, Ludmila searches for a mushroom shaped like Ulamnuran's hat.
Ludmila: Hehehe. I found it! Hahaha!
She intends to turn it into a dish for Ulamnuran as thanks for his help.
But that is a tale for another time.
