Guard captain for Brillet Desert, a town surrounded by sand, Volenna is a strict taskmaster who speaks with piercing ferocity and holds herself to the same high standards she places on others. Still empathetic, she understands the loneliness Sara endures, but thinks of it as something she can overcome, believing that Sara has the strength to do so. At times, Volenna entertains the thought of giving Sara more freedom, but ultimately decides against it each time. Despite her harsh attitude and manner of speaking, she's a caring and responsible girl with excellent housekeeping abilities.

Happy Birthday Cutscenes
# Link Text
1

So today's your birthday, huh? The fact that you've survived this long is something to be proud of.
Many things are lost over the years. Hopes... Dreams.... Even the lives of others.
The things you took for granted yesterday could disappear tomorrow. Never forget that.
With that being said, I hope this coming year will be another prosperous year for you, (Captain).

2

Happy birthday. I'm glad I was able to be with you on your special day.
My own and Sara's lives have changed significantly since meeting you--for the better, I believe.
I hope that our presence in your life has changed yours for the better as well.
Who knows what would've become of us if it weren't for...Anyways, we'll make sure you stay happy and healthy until your next birthday.

3

(Captain), happy birthday.
I'd like to celebrate you completing another year of your perilous journey.
You're always considerate toward the people around you.
That's respectable enough... But that consideration can leave you vulnerable all the same.
Any one person's attentiveness has its limits. Naturally, if you're in trouble I'll help out...
But there will be times when I'm not by your side. I'd be appalled if anything were to happen in my absence.
That's why I have to ask you: Please take care of yourself. There's no better way to take care of others.

Happy New Year Cutscenes

1

The curtain has been drawn on a new year. We should rekindle our ambitions by aspiring to accomplish something new.
What will I aspire toward? Hmm. Let me think...
...
I guess I'm hoping to smile a little more.
Hah... You think that's funny? I'm being serious. Very serious.

2

Happy New Year, (Captain).
My smile? Yeah... It's actually been a New Year's resolution of mine.
You see, it can be kinda... difficult. Smiling naturally doesn't come easy for me.
People tell me it's simple, but they're wrong. That's not the case at all.
Anyways, if you think of any good practice methods, please let me know.
If Sara always sees me looking so serious, she'd probably get worried, you know?

3

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Hm... My New Year's resolution? You want to know that right off the bat?
Yes, that's right. I'm resolving again this year to learn how to smile naturally.
I tried again and again last year, but it didn't quite pan out. So this year is going to be the year...
Hm? You mean there's already something less than natural about my way of thinking?
You could just be right, (Captain).
I guess so... Maybe what really matters is where your heart is...
Well now, I thought I'd learned how to control my emotions.... But it seems that might've done more harm than anything.
I'm grateful for your advice. This is going to be the year that I do a bit of hard work to advance.

Valentine's Day Cutscenes

What? What is it? You want chocolates?
You got some from Sara, didn't you?
I've worked hard to make sure I could always get you chocolate. And I always had to make sure I didn't upset Sara by giving you chocolate first.
Humph. Just take it. I made these. and some of them are kinda blobby, but don't let it bother you.
Thanks for all the help so far, Captain. I owe you one.

2

Hey, (Captain). Have you been getting enough sleep lately? Here. Take a load off and eat this.
You're just like Sara... The both of you don't realize when you're pushing yourselves too hard.
That's why you need to take a break every now and then.
Valentine's Day can be quite beneficial if you think about it this way.
I must thank you for everything, (Captain). Stay a while and rest.

3

(Captain), did you already pick up your chocolates from Sara?
If you did, great. Because she worked as hard as ever this year.
Let me give you a few as well. It's my way of saying thanks for everything you do.
Hm? Yeah, they're handmade again this year. Sara and I baked them together but made them different flavors.
This much is really nothing though. Especially when you're always putting yourself out there for the crew and everyone.
Why not take a bite and call it a day? Everybody needs to rest now and then.

For me? Ah, you must want me to give this to Sara. Oh, you don't?
I see. This must be for what I gave you on Valentine's Day. I can tell you also have a strong sense of integrity.
If you enjoyed that candy I gave you, I can always make more for you anytime.
I made it a point to memorize the recipe. It's good to do something challenging sometimes. I mean it.
I care about you just as I care about Sara. I'd sooner pass out from exhaustion than give up on doing anything I can for either of you.

2

A White Day gift for me? Of course... You have my thanks.
I'll make something different for you next year on Valentine's Day too.
...
S-sorry. I was just surprised at how matter-of-fact I made that promise to you.
I guess people can change after all. In my case, I think it's for the better—all thanks to you.

3

Why'd you call me over here?
Hm? A present? For me?
I see... Today is White Day then. Sorry, it totally slipped my mind.
You're on top of it every year, aren't you? Thanks for your thoughtfulness. I really appreciate it.
Since we're all together, how about we put on some tea and eat these with Sara. What do you say, (Captain)?

Trick or Treat Cutscenes
# Link Text
1

Phew, getting Katalina away from the kitchen took a lot out of me.
Now is not the time for silly pranks, (Captain). Proper measurement is of utmost importance when making sweets.
I’ll give you and Lyria a handful when I’m done. But for now… Hey!
Who said you could snack on my pumpkin jam!

2

Oh, there you are, (Captain). I made some treats with Sara the other day. You should enjoy them with Lyria and the others.
The truth is, Sara's actually got a fever right now. She was so excited about the treats that she wasn't able to sleep well, it seems.
I'm probably gonna stay by her side today. If you have some time later, you should stop by and give her a visit.
Also, take it easy on the pranks today. I know you like to go a little overboard sometimes on Halloween, heh.

3

T-trick or treat...
...!
Oh, it's you, (Captain)... Did you... just see that?
You did, didn't you?
Sara invited me to have fun together with her on Halloween...
But I'm at a bit of a loss for what to do. So I was holding a little dress rehearsal before heading out...
To be honest, I'm not sure that Sara will be able to have fun with me...
(Captain), if you're going into town, would you mind going along with me?
Really? I'd appreciate that. For Sara's sake and yours, I'll try to make it fun.

Happy Holidays Cutscenes
# Link Text
1

So this is the peace of the holiday season. Sara and I have never really had the chance to experience it before.
From those who survived the floods of Manawydan, she was chosen as Priestess of the Dunes, and I was chosen to protect her.
Though our bond is strong, we've never really had the type of relationship that would allow us to enjoy this season.
Come to think of it, that must have been hard for Sara and all the maidens that came before her.
Can we change that someday? Yes. I very much hope so.

2

I know I stored it here somewhere...
Oh hey, (Captain). What's up?
Oh, this? I was thinking of putting up the pinecone tree Sara made this year too.
Back when I was guard captain, our policy was to carry as few possessions as possible.
Interestingly enough, since I've joined your crew I've begun to keep more material things.
But that's not a bad thing, I think. At least, I'd like to think...
Whether it's belongings or memories, it's important to not throw away what's precious to us.

3

It seems that spices are a bit pricy this time of year. Everyone needs some, so there's a little shortage...
Well, we have everything we went shopping for. Let's return to the ship—there are people waiting for us in the kitchen.
That said, the town has really come alive on the eve of the holiday.
Everyone's singing the praises of the holiday... It's a symbol of peace.
No, maybe it would be better to call it a sort of everyday miracle...
...
I'm sorry... I've gotten a little emotional. Come on, let's hurry back. Sara and the others are waiting for us.

Taking the Lead at Camp[edit]

Our heroes were setting up camp out near a water source. While Katalina was preparing a meal, Volenna went off to collect some water, when all of a sudden a powerful stench rolled in and sent her running back, pale-faced. The source of the stench was, of course, Katalina’s special soup. Baffled by Katalina’s poor life skills, Volenna decided to join our heroes on their travels in order to teach them how to do basic chores.



During their travels, (Captain) and company met Volenna, who was pursuing a certain primal beast.
(Captain) and company needed Volenna’s help, so they were all traveling together.
Katalina: Whew... We’ve walked for some time now. Let’s camp here for the night. It seems we’ve got a water source nearby, too.
Volenna: Hmph... We haven’t traveled very far, but we do have children with us. I guess we have no choice.
Volenna: I’ll go fetch some water. You light a fire and start setting up camp. But be wary of monsters.
Lyria: Yeah! Yay, food! I love food! Say, Katalina, what will you be making?
Katalina: Let’s see... Something to warm us up... Soup, perhaps? Nevertheless, I’ll give it my very best!
Lyria: Good for you, Katalina! I’ll help, too.
Vyrn: Oh, gimme a break! Just one of you is bad enough, trust me...
Volenna: Hey! What’s this stench?! I could smell it from half the forest away!
Lyria: I’m sorry... We were making soup, but we burned it...
Volenna: You burned it...? That’s all it took to make this unbearable stench?! What the hell was even in that soup?!
Katalina: Nngh... I’m so ashamed. I was really trying to make it perfectly, but I’m just so rubbish...
Volenna: NO excuses! Camping is a basic part of being a soldier. Good grief... Didn’t you learn anything in training?!
Volenna: To think you can’t even manage this... Well, I do believe the ingredients were in this bag... Ah! Here’s the leftover dried meat, as well as some root vegetables...
Vyrn: Th-this is amazing! You made a whole meal, just like that! You’re talented, Volenna!
Volenna: Talented? This is nothing that requires any skill. All I did was chop it up and fry it. Now hurry up and eat it while it’s still hot.
Lyria: Thanks for the food! Munch, munch... Mmm...! The more I chew it, the better it tastes...!
Volenna: ...? Haven’t you ever had dried meat before? Hey, don’t eat nothing but meat! You gotta eat a balanced meal!
Vyrn: Siiigh... If only Volenna would join our Order... Don’t you agree, (Captain)?
  1. She would be a big help, after all
  2. She’s a great cook, after all

Choose: She would be a big help, after all
Volenna: Hmph... Flattery will get you nowhere with me. Would you like seconds?

Choose: She’s a great cook, after all
Volenna: Huh...? Don’t be silly. You’re a perfectly capable chef yourself, (Captain).
Katalina: H-Hang on... Don’t just gloss over me...! I... I...!
Continue 1
Volenna: But... I owe you people just as much. I’m more than happy to lend you a hand.
Lyria: YAAAY! After we find the primal beast we’re looking for, let’s just stay together, okay?
Volenna: I hadn’t given any thought to what happens once we achieve our objective, but... Hmph. Sure, that’d be fine...
Volenna: I can’t let you people continue to live like barbarians. I’m coming with you, and I’m gonna drill the basics of chores into you! Cooking, laundry, you name it!
Volenna: You better prepare yourselves!
Volenna proved to be a strict taskmaster, but every now and then, they could catch a glimpse of her inner kindness.
Surrounded by the hustle and bustle of (Captain)’s group, she found her own way of life slowly changing as well.

What Can I Do for You?[edit]

One day, a small girl comes to make a request to (Captain). For a small sum of money, she asks them to recover a ribbon that is a keepsake of her mother. But Volenna pushes her away, telling her to look for it by herself.



One day, (Captain) and company receive a request from a young girl.
Girl: Um... will you accept a request with this amount?
Katalina: What’s wrong? Tell us what happened.
Girl: Well... During the picnic the other day... Monsters appeared and I lost my ribbon.
Lyria: I get it... So you want us to look for that ribbon?
Girl: Um... My mother gave it to me before she died... So please...!
Volenna: Hmph... I won’t accept that chump change. If it’s that important to you, go look for it yourself.
Katalina: Stop it! She’s only a child. And it’s a keepsake of her mother.
Volenna: That’s stupid. You’re spoiling her.
Girl: Hic... Hic... You won’t...?
Lyria: Oh no! Don't cry. We’ll help you look for it.
Girl: R-Really...? Can I ask you to...?
Katalina: Yes. Leave it to us. We’ll find your ribbon for you. Right, (Captain)?
Volenna: Are you going to accept, (Captain)? You people are a bunch of softies. If you’re going, then make it quick. It’s a waste of time.
Vyrn: Ah! Hey! Wait for us, Volenna! Geez. She’s so unfriendly!

What Can I Do for You?: Scene 2[edit]

(Captain) and company accepted the little girl’s request and are now diligently trying to find her ribbon. However, Volenna states that they should not spoil the girl for the sake of her future; that she must learn to be strong.



Katalina: Umm... She must have taken this path when she ran...
Volenna: She was attacked by monsters here a few days ago, right? We don’t even know if the ribbon has been torn to shreds.
Lyria: But... It’s something really important to her...
Volenna: Stop spreading what you assume to be good will like that. You can sometimes cause more trouble that way.
Katalina: What? Why do you always say things like that to push others away?!
Volenna: If you spoil them, they’ll only become more dependent on you. It’s that girl that will suffer the consequences later.
Volenna: Her mother is already dead. That’s all the more reason for her to grow stronger. Helping haphazardly will only become a hindrance to her.
Lyria: Hehe...
Volenna: What are you laughing about?
Lyria: Nothing... I’m just happy that you care about her, even though our opinions differ on how to do it.
Volenna: Hmph! You’re only talking in general terms. And don’t just look for the ribbon. You have to watch your surroundings, too! The monsters are coming.
Katalina: She always pretends to act that way... All right, (Captain). Let’s beat down those monsters and find that ribbon!

What Can I Do for You?: Scene 3[edit]

The party hurries to the girl after finding the ribbon. Seeing the ribbon in pieces, the girl felt ashamed at why she didn’t act sooner. But Volenna says that the dirt and frays can all be mended. She shows the girl that being strict is but another way to show that she cares.



Katalina: I found it! This must be the ribbon she talked about!
Volenna: You found it? Then let’s go back. I want to return to town before it gets dark.
Lyria: Yeah! Let’s get the ribbon back to her!
Lyria: Here’s your ribbon. It’s a bit tattered, but we found it!
Girl: Thank you...! Sniff... It’s because I lost it that it’s so dirty and frayed...
Volenna: The dirt and tattered parts are proof of your weakness.
Girl: Sniff... Yes...
Volenna: Become stronger so that you can protect what you love. You should be able to do that.
Volenna: Come on. Don’t cry. Dirt can be washed off and frays can be mended. It’s a simple fix. Mistakes can always be fixed.
Girl: But... My mom is gone... I don’t know who to learn from on how to sew...
Volenna: Hmph. Is that all? I’ll teach you. If you want to learn, that is.
Girl: Huh...? Really?
Volenna: Hurry up. I hate wasting time.
Girl: Thank you! Miss! I’ll do my best to learn how to sew!
Katalina: Haha... You said all those things to us, but you’re a big softie yourself.
Volenna: Hmph. Your softness was contagious.
Volenna: But... it doesn’t feel half-bad.
Lyria: Ah! I want to learn how to sew, too!
Katalina: Wow! That’s admirable of you, Lyria. Maybe I should take lessons from Volenna, too.
Volenna: Hey, Katalina... You don’t even know how to sew? Don’t get in the way!
Girl: Ahaha! You two are such good friends.
Volenna: Why would you think that after seeing this?
Lyria: Yup! That’s true! We’re all good friends!
Volenna is strict on herself and on others. But that is because she cares deeply for others.
There will be more people who will come to like her for her strength and kindness.
