Happy Birthday Cutscenes
# Link Text

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).


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.


(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 birthday, (Captain). I'm glad we can celebrate together like this again.
Whenever there's someone in trouble, you're always the first one pouncing in to help. You really had me on edge all year...
Your consideration toward others is a rare quality. You should be proud of it—as am I.
But you know, it can get dangerous if you step too far over the line.
No matter how much you want to help those around you, someday you may find it all too much if you don't keep it in moderation.
You have to prioritize your own safety, got it? You can still save others by looking after yourself first.
I owe you my life, and that's why I'm telling you this. Don't forget it, (Captain).

Happy New Year Cutscenes
# Link Text

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.


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?


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.


Happy New Year, (Captain).
Hm? What's a natural way to smile? I'm not too sure about that myself...
Well, Sara's been saying that I've been smiling a lot lately, and Jin seems to agree.
I guess you don't really realize these things until someone tells you, huh?
In the end, there're a lot of things you don't know about yourself.
For example, having come this far, I can't believe I ever thought to let Sara just die like that...
People change without realizing it themselves.
I hope I can continue to change for the better—I'll have to keep working hard this year too.

Valentine's Day Cutscenes
# Link Text

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.


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.


(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.


Here, take this. It's chocolate for Valentine's.
Hm? Yes, I told Sara she should try making chocolate for you this year by herself.
This chocolate from me is from a handmade chocolate shop. Watching the chocolatier make it was quite interesting...
Huh? You were looking forward to my handmade chocolate?
Well, if you don't mind it being the usual, I can always make something for you even when it's not Valentine's Day.
So just enjoy the chocolatier's handmade chocolate today. You don't get this every day, you know.

White Day Cutscenes
# Link Text

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.


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.


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)?


You prepared another present for me for White Day? Thank you.
I'd forgotten what it was like to express gratitude and respect in this way for so long.
Perhaps it's because I'd been so focused on my mission as captain of the guard to bring the priestess to her place of death...
I was under so much pressure back then, and didn't consider the feelings of my subordinates.
Hm? You're right. I should learn from you and make something for everyone in the guard too.
Haha, they might laugh if I do something like that though...
Well, nothing would make me happier than to see smiles on all of their faces.

Trick or Treat Cutscenes
# Link Text

Phew, getting Katalina away from the kitchen took a lot out of me.
Now is not the time for silly pranks, (Captain). Proper measurements 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!


Oh, there you are, (Captain). I made some sweets 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.


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 Halloween, (Captain).
What's that? Trick or treat? Wait right there, I'll get you something to eat.
Actually... I'm still in the middle of making it, so I don't have anything ready at the moment.
Apparently Branwen really likes desserts. She and Sara came in and just ate everything...
But seeing them eating so happily makes me happy too.
Hm? If I don't have any treats, then it's time for a trick? Hah, if you think you can trick me, then bring it on...
But that means you will never get some of that delicious dessert baking in the oven right now.
Now, which will it be, (Captain)? Trick or treat?

Happy Holidays Cutscenes
# Link Text

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.


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.


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.


It's awfully chilly tonight. We might even see snow by dinnertime.
Don't just stand there getting all excited about the snow. Put on more clothes—you'll catch a cold.
If you get sick, you won't be able to enjoy the holy night dinner and presents this year.
What? What do you mean I'll take care of you if you get sick?
Fine. If that's how it's going to be... If you catch a cold, we'll have Katalina prepare our meals instead.
I'll bring the meals to your bedside and make you eat them, of course. After all, we have to make sure you're early properly, right?
No? Then you'd better wear this scarf and get yourself warmed up.

Say Goodbye to the Past[edit]

Volenna, who's nursing Sara back to health, tells (Captain) and company how worried she is about not being good enough, but they reassure her. She considers joining the crew once Sara recovers.

Sara and Volenna, the Priestess of the Dunes and her bodyguard, decided to seal away a primal beast that was flooding Sable Island.
On their way to the shrine where they intended to confine it, the two met (Captain) and company. Together they successfully seal away the beast.
After a bit of travel with the crew, Sara falls ill and is forced to return to Sable Island with Volenna to recuperate.
Worried about Sara, (Captain) and company go to visit her during her long period of recovery.
Sara: Thank you for coming to see me. I'm so glad to see you, Lyria. And of course you, (Captain)... Cough...
Lyria: Yeah! I'm glad to see you too! We were worried when we heard that it's taking so long for you to recover.
Sara: Oh, sorry... Sorry for worrying you...
Sara: Hee-hee... Seeing you guys has really cheered me up. I'm sure I'll be better soon. Cough.
Volenna: Sara. Please rest. I know you're excited about your friends coming to visit, but you'll make yourself worse if you get too excited.
Volenna: (Captain) and the others will still be around for a while yet. You can talk again once you wake up.
Sara: Yes... Cough. Sorry, Lyria. I'm just going to lie down again for a while.
Lyria: Oh, please don't worry about it! Let's talk again another time. Have a good rest, Sara.
Sara goes to lie down, and (Captain) and company leave the room with Volenna.
Volenna: ...
Lyria: Are you all right, Volenna? You don't look so good.
Volenna: Oh, it's nothing. I'm just thinking is all.
Lyria: Um... I know you're really worried about Sara.
Lyria: But you've got to take care of yourself. You won't be any good to anyone if you get ill too.
Volenna: Yes... You're right. Burning myself out wouldn't do anyone any good.
Volenna: But I don't feel like I can take proper care of Sara. I'm pathetically inept.
Vyrn: Hey, don't be so hard on yourself! You're doing your very best to take care of Sara.
Volenna: Well, it's the least I can do to atone for my past sins.
Volenna: I met Sara just after the previous Priestess of the Dunes passed away, back when she was still just a young child.
Volenna: That child had to take up a heavy and fatal duty. She was chosen as the next Priestess of the Dunes.
Volenna: It was cruel, but I, like everyone else, thought it was necessary for the protection of Sable Island.
Lyria: ...
Volenna: Parting is painful if you know someone well. And as she was destined to die anyway, any relationships she had would have only caused her more pain.
Volenna: With that in mind, I distanced myself from Sara.
Volenna: For her part, she restrained herself and refused to rely on other people.
Lyria: But that sounds so lonely!
Volenna: Yes. Now that she's been released from her duties, I want her to be just a bit more selfish—you know, the way children are supposed to be.
Volenna: But Sara still refuses to rely on anyone, even me, in spite of her illness. She continues to carry on alone.
Volenna: I know she's not used to relying on anyone, but perhaps she senses that I'm just not reliable.
Vyrn: No, of course not! Sheesh, Volenna, it sounds like all that nursing is really taking a toll on you.
Volenna: Perhaps... This really isn't like me.
Volenna: But when I saw Sara talking to Lyria and (Captain) so cheerfully...
Volenna: I thought that things would have been easier for Sara if I were more like (Captain).
  1. It's all because of the bad environment.
  2. Good for you.

Choose: It's all because of the bad environment.
Lyria: That's right, Volenna! Both you and Sara have bad memories of Sable Island.
Lyria: So being here brings back those memories, and you end up stuck in a vicious cycle.
Lyria: It's no good to have your mind trapped here like that.
Volenna: My mind trapped?
Volenna: I think you guys might be right.

Choose: Good for you.
Volenna: Wha?
Vyrn: Yep, (Captain) might be on to something!
Volenna: Vyrn... Even you agree?
Vyrn: Heh-heh... Don't you see? You're right down at the bottom of that hole right now, so there's no way to go but up!
Vyrn: So right now you might be nursing Sara and worrying, but things can't get any worse!
Vyrn: Or at least I hope they can't... Well, I can definitely say you're better off being optimistic, right?
Volenna: I suppose you might be right.
Continue 1
Volenna: It's hard to do much about guilt related to the past, but I need to keep moving forward.
Volenna: You guys have really helped me to bring things into focus. Thank you.
Lyria: Hee-hee... It was nothing really.
Volenna: That attitude of yours is probably the reason you can help people like me.
Volenna: Once Sara recovers, I think I just might join you on your travels.
Volenna: It would definitely keep me entertained at the least.
Lyria: Wow, that sounds good! You'd be most welcome!
Volenna: I think having that to look forward to will help Sara get better too.
Vyrn: Yeah! It's easy to get bummed out when you're ill for so long. You need something to look forward to!
Volenna: I'll talk to you about this properly when the time comes, (Captain).
Volenna: Uh... I need to give Sara her medicine when she wakes up. I'm gonna go get some water, so wait here.
Vyrn: Ha-ha! Volenna seemed different from before. She was just plain concerned about Sara.
Lyria: Maybe... But I'm not sure if she's actually changed. I think she was always a kind person.
Lyria: Hmm... I think Volenna was trapped by Sara's duties as a Priestess of the Dunes too.
Lyria: I hope Sara gets better soon.
Volenna, once nothing more than a tough bodyguard, has begun to change so she can offer Sara real protection.
Surely she'll find a way to save Sara from her illness.

Intertwined Fate[edit]

As the party volunteers to slay the monsters in the mountains, a young boy requests that they take him along. He explains that he wants to avenge his dog that was killed by the monsters. However, Volenna dismisses his request and Lyria convinces him to stay at the village.

During their journey, (Captain) and company came across a village suffering from repeated invasions by monsters.
The party decides to save the village by slaying the monsters in the mountain.
Lyria: Now, let's go save those villagers!
Volenna: It's good that you have enthusiasm, but I hope you're ready for this.
Volenna: A battle's outcome is mostly determined by the preparation... Hm?
Boy: ...
Volenna: Hey, kid. What do you want?
Boy: Um... Please take me with you to beat those monsters!
Lyria: Wha?! It's dangerous!
Boy: But I want to get revenge! My dog died trying to save me from the boss of those monsters...!
Volenna: No.
Boy: Please, lady! He was like a brother to me!
Volenna: No. You'll only be a burden.
Boy: But... I'll do my best not to get in the way! So please...
Volenna: Hmph...
Vyrn: Oh! Ah... He's gone. You didn't have to be so cold!
Lyria: But she's right about it being dangerous for a child.
Lyria: Um... We promise to take care of those monsters. So wait for us in the village, okay?
Boy: ...

Intertwined Fate: Scene 2[edit]

Volenna dismisses the idea of getting revenge for the dog that died protecting his young master. She explains that risking the boy's life after it was saved by the dog would be an insult to the dog's efforts.

Vyrn: Ugh... There's no end to these monsters... We can't keep this up forever!
Volenna: The problem isn't their numbers... Their strength must be in their boss' leadership.
Volenna: Once we take out the leader, they should be easy to take care of.
Vyrn: I see! Let's go find that boss then!
Volenna: If the boss is the cautious type, it should be in the depths of the mountains protected by its minions.
Volenna: Remember not to let your guard down, (Captain).
Lyria: Earlier... That boy said his dog was killed by the boss of those monsters, didn't he?
Vyrn: Yeah... Let's take out that boss and get revenge for him!
Volenna: How foolish.
Vyrn: Wha?! Why would you say that?!
Volenna: The idea of going to get revenge is foolish in itself.
Volenna: That boy's dog gave his life to protect him.
Volenna: Throwing his life away in an attempt to get revenge would make that death meaningless.
Volenna: Why should we let him to do that?
Lyria: I see... I didn't think of it that way...
Vyrn: Tch! There are nicer ways to say that, you know?
Volenna: Hmph.
Volenna: Wait... (Captain). Look at these footprints... They're bigger than the other monsters.
Volenna: Hmph, you can hide all you want but I know you're there...!
Monster: Grrrr...
Volenna: There it is...! That's a lot of confidence. (Captain), let's go!

Intertwined Fate: Scene 3[edit]

Volenna speaks to the young boy in front of his dog's grave. As a bodyguard herself, she expresses her pride in the dog for protecting the boy with his life. Next next day, the boy sees the party off and tells them that he would also like to protect someone when he grows up.

(Captain) and company successfully defeat the boss and the remaining monsters.
When they report back to the village, the villagers are elated. Not only do they offer a reward, but they ask the party to stay and rest.
Vyrn: Hey! They said they're gonna give us food at the dining hall!
Lyria: Yay! I'm starving! Let's go, (Captain)! You too, Volenna... Aren't you coming?
Volenna: Sorry, but there's something I want to talk to a villager about. Go ahead without me.
Lyria: Sure! You must be tired, so don't overwork yourself, Volenna.
Volenna: Yes, I know. I'll see you later.
Boy: ...
Volenna: There you are.
Boy: It's you...
Volenna: This is for your dog.
Boy: Huh? ... Flowers...? Thank you...
Volenna: Your dog was a loyal bodyguard. He protected you from harm in the face of danger. As someone who shares the same duty, I'm proud of him.
Boy: T-Thanks...
Boy: But... But you know. I wanted him to... Be alive, with me...
Boy: Waah... sob...
Volenna: This dog is fortunate. Not only did he fulfill his duty, but he has someone who cares enough to cry for him.
Volenna: Give him your farewells, and cry as much as you'd like.
Boy: Waaaaahhh!
Volenna softly pats the boy's head as he cries over his dog's grave.
The next day, the party is fully rested and ready to leave the village.
Vyrn: Well, it's time to go! Hm? That's...
Boy: Pant... Pant...! W-Wait!
The boy calls to (Captain) and company with eyes that are red and puffy from crying.
Lyria: What's wrong? Do you need something?
Boy: Um... Miss?
Volenna: What is it?
Boy: When I grow up... I'm gonna be someone who will protect others, like my dog. No matter what.
Volenna: Hm... Good.
Volenna: You look like a new person today. Don't forget those words.
Boy: I won't!
Volenna's bluntness can be seen as cold by some.
However, the young boy was touched by the kind intentions behind her stern words.
