Caught in a Big Bad Shadow
While investigating a scream coming from the Grandcypher's pantry, the crew is ambushed by an unknown, immensely powerful version of Vyrn. (Captain) and company are backed into a corner when Katalina, Ferry, and Jin from a different world appear out of thin air to lend a hand.
Vania: Soup's on, Bloodkin! I made a yummy, yummy stew! Eat, eat!
Yaia: I helped Vania too! We made fried rice together!
Katalina: Don't forget about my contributions. I'm feeling especially confident about how the food turned out today. Go on, take a bite!
Jin: You... had a hand in making this, Katalina?
Rosamia: (It looks tasty. Don't mind if I dig in.)
Rosamia: I don't feel like dying just yet, so I'll leave Katalina's portion aside for now.
Vyrn: Not again, Rosamia! You got your private thoughts and public opinions mixed up!
Despite their reservations about Katalina's cooking, the crew's appetite wins out, and (Captain) and company settle down for their light meal.
Vyrn: Are we out of apples? I don't see any out here...
Ferry: Hm? There should still be some in the pantry.
Vyrn: Gotcha. I'll be right back!
Lyria: I wonder why Vyrn's taking so long...
Katalina: Gasp! That sounded like Vyrn! Something must've—
Jin: I'll go have a look. Vania, you and the rest stay put.
Katalina: Vyrn? What was that scream just now?
Vyrn?: Nothing to worry about. Just dropped some apples, that's all.
Everyone lets out a sigh of relief.
Everyone except (Captain), that is, who studies Vyrn with a look of doubt.
Lyria: (Captain)? Why are you glaring at Vyrn like that?
Vyrn?: Heh heh... I knew I couldn't fool you, (Captain)!
Jin: Watch out, (Captain)!
Jin: Vyrn! What is the meaning behind your actions toward (Captain)?
Vyrn?: It's what I always do to finish someone off.
Vyrn?: Once I get rid of all you clowns, I'll be unchallenged as the strongest warrior in the skies.
Vyrn?: And then I'll be the king of the world!
Jin: What's gotten into you, Vyrn? Was it something you ate?
Jin: Aha! Could it be that Katalina's cooking had an adverse effect on you?
Katalina: What's that supposed to mean?
Ferry: Um... Wow, I wouldn't say it like that...
Rosamia: Beating around the bush will only increase the number of her victims. We have to tell it like it is.
Lyria: Well... I think Katalina's food tastes good... Right?
Vania: I think everyone has their own tastes if you ask me.
Ferry: A-anyway, can we talk about this later? Right now we have to get Vyrn back to normal.
Ferry: We might not be able to do much later on if the situation gets any worse.
Jin: Duly noted!
Vyrn?: Hah! I'd like to see you try! Catch me if you can!
Jin: Urgh! When did he get so strong?
Vyrn?: Bwahahaha! Bow before my might you puny weaklings!
Lyria: Huh? Isn't that...
Katalina: T-two Vyrns?
Vyrn: Watch it! That Vyrn's an imposter! He attacked me outta nowhere!
Ferry: So it's a doppelvyrn...
Rosamia: No, we can't rule out other possibilities. They both could be fakes.
Ferry: I guess it's possible. Then how can we tell them apart?
Choose: That's the real Vyrn!
Vyrn: I knew I could count on you, old buddy! You know me like the back of your own hand!
Ferry: Are you absolutely sure about that, (Captain)?
(Captain) nods with complete confidence.
Choose: I don't know!
Vyrn: Gasp! How can you say that after all we've been through?
Vyrn: You're lying, aren't you? Tell me you're lying!
Yaia: Oh, I know! That one is the real Vyrn!
Lyria: Why do you say that, Yaia?
Yaia: Because he said my fried rice was delicious!
Vania: Oh yeah, he totally did!Continue 1
Rosamia: I see. Which means that Vyrn over there is the only imposter.
Jin: Tch. How dare you disguise yourself as Vyrn to ambush us! I shall make you regret your cowardly schemes!
Vyrn?: Yawn. Too slow.
Jin: H-how did you dodge my sword with such ease?
Vyrn?: Oh, is it my turn now? Can you handle... this!
Jin: Yurgh! There's so much force behind his strikes!
Ferry: Jin's getting pushed back! We have to help him!
Everyone nods, and they all leap into action.
Jin: I am in your debt, everyone!
Vyrn?: Come on, come on! This all you got?
Katalina: Stop it at once, you fake! Why are you doing this?
Vyrn?: I've grown tired of you too, Katalina. Time to kick it up a notch!
Rosamia: (His form has changed! Be extra careful, everyone!)
Yaia: Sniff... That Vyrn's too scary...
Vyrn?: Heh. Shall we dance?
Katalina: Ngh, this pressure is overpowering... We have to stop him—right here, right now!
Ferry: Got it!
Vania: I'm ready to go too!
Vyrn?: Hah... Did you think that would stop me?
Ferry: Even if we stopped you for a single second, that would be enough! Now, everyone!
Katalina: I'll make you pay! Blades of Frost!
Jin: This slash I bestow shall be my last gift to you. Blades of the Unseen!
Vania: I'm fighting for real! Purification by Blood!
Ferry: Are you ready for this? Aetheryte Procession!
Rosamia: This ends here. Spell release! Talismaster!
Katalina: Did we get him?
Vyrn?: Seriously? You call that going all out? That was pathetic.
Vyrn: That's impossible! He took that huge attack without a single scratch!
Vyrn?: Here comes the pain train.
Vyrn: H-hey... This... This can't be happening... Everyone downed in a single instant...
Vyrn?: Well, well, well. You managed to block that attack, (Captain). Serves me right for going easy on you all.
Vyrn?: But now I'm going to finish you off.
Vyrn: Wait! What's that?
Jin?: Hm... This world doesn't seem all that different from ours.
Ferry?: Yes, but for now our main concern is capturing Vyrn.
Lyria: Um... Um... That's Katalina, and that's Ferry, and that's Jin... But how can that be when they're lying over there...
Katalina?: Huff... Huff... Vyrn... Vyrn...
Lyria: No. On second thought that isn't Katalina.
Vyrn: Hey, Lyria!
Katalina?: Gasp! Vyrrrn!
The Katalina that seemed to have appeared from out of thin air grabs Vyrn in the blink of an eye and hugs him with all her might.
Vyrn: Bleegh! I'm getting crushed! Cruuushed!
Jin?: Restrain yourself, Katalina! That Vyrn isn't as sturdy as ours!
Katalina?: Vyrn! Vyrrrn!
Katalina?: Hm, something doesn't feel quite right about this hug...
Katalina?: This is all wrong! You're not my Vyrn! You're... an imposter!
Jin?: Indeed. The Vyrn you're holding belongs to this world. Therefore it would be nice if you released him.
Katalina?: Yes, of course. But the likeness is incredible... I was almost about to be completely taken in...
Katalina releases Vyrn from her iron grip.
Vyrn: Bleagh... Huff... Gasp...
Yaia: A-are you okay, Vyrn?
Vyrn: I... I ain't no... fake... Guh.
Lyria: No! Please hang in there, Vyrn!
Yaia: Vyrn! Wake up, Vyrn!
Katalina?: Now where is the real—I mean, where is my Vyrn?
Katalina?: There he is! Come here you!
Vyrn?: Geez, this sucks. I can't believe she chased me all the way here.
Katalina?: You're miiine!
Jin?: Wait, Katalina!
The man who looks an awful lot like Jin turns to (Captain) with a stern look on his face.
Jin?: My deepest apologies to you and your party, but could you possibly lend us a hand?
Jin?: That Vyrn must be stopped at all costs!
Jin?: Thank you. His power is off the charts. Whatever you do, you must not take him lightly!
Jin?: What's more, even I do not know the extent of his transformation abilities!
Lyria: Are you saying he can still turn into... other forms?
Jin?: Isn't that obvious? This is Vyrn we're talking about.
Choose: That was... Vyrn?
Jin?: Well, yes. What are you so shocked about?
Lyria: Huh? J-just look at him! How did he turn into that?
Jin?: Isn't it obvious? This is Vyrn we're talking about.Continue 2
Jin?: Ah... Could it be that your Vyrn is unable to take on different forms?
Jin?: Good heavens! To think there could be such a difference in how one exists...
Jin?: No, on second thought that makes perfect sense. And that means that Lyria also...
Lyria: What's this about me?
Jin?: Ahem, it is nothing. Returning to the matter at hand, restraining Vyrn is of the utmost importance!
Vyrn?: Heh. Looks like you lowbies are gettin' fired up.
Vyrn?: All right, then step right up! Those of you with a death wish please form a line!
Caught in a Big Bad Shadow: Scene 2
Doppelvyrn regains the upper hand until the female crew members stir up dimensional Jin's spirit of justice, giving him the strength to weaken Doppelvyrn. With victory at hand, the characters from the other world gather up Doppelvyrn and head home, leaving the crew flabbergasted at the day's events.
Vyrn?: Ngh... Grrr... Uwaaagh!
Vyrn?: Not yet...
Vyrn?: I won't let it end here. Not! Like! This!
Vyrn howls into the sky, sending out a vicious shockwave.
It rocks the Grandcypher with tremendous force, smashing the crew violently into the deck.
Ferry?: Ngh... Is everyone okay?
(Captain) says no.
Jin?: Sorry. I'm afraid I can't move either...
Vyrn?: Vyrn: 1. Everyone else... 0.
Ferry?: I guess this really is the end...
Vania: Oh no! My stew!
Yaia: My fried rice!
Two teary-eyed girls sit among scattered pots and pans.
Vania: Sob... And I worked so hard to make it tasty for Bloodkin...
Yaia: I wanted everyone to be happy...
Jin?: That. Is. Enough!
Vyrn?: Oho... You can still stand.
Jin?: Vyrn! You've crossed a line that must never be crossed!
Vyrn?: Which is?
Jin?: I am one of Vania's bloodkin! I will not let you get away with spoiling her stew!
Jin?: If I had just been able to eat her stew, she would have given me a lovely bite on my neck!
Vania: Um, I don't really get what he's saying...
Jin?: And in regards to Yaia's fried rice, she worked her fingers to the bone to make it!
Jin?: To have her heartfelt food fill one's stomach brings comfort to one's mind and body!
Jin?: You have ruined a fine banquet that was prepared with love, and I will not let that stand!
Yaia: Jin... I didn't know you liked fried rice that much...
Jin?: In Vania and Yaia's place, I will be your judge, jury, and executioner!
Vyrn?: Is that all you wanted to say, you country bumpkin?
Jin?: Guh... Is my strength truly no match against him?
Vyrn?: I think I've had enough games for one day. Play time's over!
Jin?: Ugh... Forgive me...
Jin: Stand up! Lift your head up high!
Jin: How long do you intend to prostrate yourself before a fiend who dares to waste the food of maidens? A fiend who makes them cry?
Jin: I cannot fully comprehend the meaning of all this, but I know that you and I are one! Therefore you will stand up again!
Jin: Show me your pride as a warrior!
Jin?: I cannot... I alone am insufficient.
Jin: You are not alone! Yaia and Vania are here.
Jin: Or rather, the entire crew is cheering you on!
Yaia: I'll have a big bowl of fried rice waiting for you!
Vania: Yeah... Um... G-good luck...
Lyria: Please do your best!
Goblin Mage: Go, go, go!
Yuisis: Just endure it a little longer.
Camieux: Try super, super hard!
Jessica: Do your best, okay?
Clarisse: Yay! Yay!
Beatrix: It's up to you!
Cucouroux: Don't give up!
Cagliostro: You can do it!
Jin?: Gasp! All of you...
Lamretta: Urp... Heh heh...
Ladiva: I love you!
Jin: You still won't stand tall even with these maidens supporting you?
Jin?: But I just... Darn it all!
Rosamia: You're nothing but a quitter. Just give up then.
Rosamia: (Don't relent. I'm cheering for you too.)
Lyria: Ah! Rosamia, you did it again...
Jin?: Hrrngggh! Once more, Rosamia! Be firmer with your tone this time!
Jin?: Just a little more!
Lyria: Is he really... Jin? He seems a little scary...
Rosamia: (What are you saying, Lyria? No matter which Jin he may be, he's still our crewmate.)
Rosamia: Yes, just looking at him fills me with disgust. What's wrong with him?
Vyrn?: Tch, what's up with his intimidating spirit? It's completely different from before.
Jin?: My wish... has been granted!
Vyrn?: The heck are you talking about?
Jin?: Heh. Let's rumble, Vyrn.
Vyrn?: Ugh! He's fast!
Jin?: No one can stop me now!
Yaia: So was that good enough?
Ferry?: Yes, thanks for your help.
Ferry?: My thanks to all of you as well.
The ladies of the crew nod and disperse with various expressions lingering on their faces.
(That should do. I hope.)
(That should do. I hope.)
Jin?: Over here!
Vyrn?: Urrrgh! This is unbelievable! I'm actually being pushed back!
Jin?: This is it, Vyrn! One slash is all it will take! Blades of the Unseen!
Jin?: Victory... is mine!
Vyrn?: No! N-not yet! I haven't lost! I—
Ferry?: Gasp! I've got it!
Katalina! Vyrn says he wants you to hug the life out of him!
Katalina! Vyrn says he wants you to hug the life out of him!
Vyrn?: Gulp! Siccing Katalina on me like that is just plain dirty—
After being revived by Ferry's words, Katalina comes flying in, grabbing Vyrn and squeezing him with abandon.
Katalina?: If you wanted a hug that badly, then why didn't you just say so? I'll give you all the hugs you could ever want.
Vyrn?: Aaagh! Let me gooo!
Katalina?: Mmm... This is the Vyrn I know and love!
Vyrn?: I'm gonna get crushed! Darn it, I guess I've got no choice!
Vyrn?: With this form I'll surely be able to esc—
Katalina?: Oh, yes. Now this form suits you the best, Vyrn. It's simply the cutest.
Vyrn: Hey, uh, can somebody fill me in?
Katalina: Th-there's another me? How is that possible?
Lyria: Katalina! Vyrn! You're finally awake!
Vyrn?: Help me! (Captain)! Anybody!
Vyrn?: If this keeps up, then Katalina will—
Katalina?: Vyrn! My dear, Vyrn!
Lyria and Katalina are at a loss for words. All they can do is watch the other Katalina, now lost in satisfaction, smother Vyrn.
Jin?: Good. Looks like things are back to normal.
Katalina: This is... normal for you?
Ferry?: Mm-hm. Just another daily occurrence.
Vyrn: I actually feel a little sorry for that other me...
Vyrn?: It's no use... There's no escaping from her... is there?
Lyria: Oh my goodness! He's completely exhausted!
Katalina?: What's wrong? Feeling sleepy? Let's go back to my room and tuck you in.
Katalina?: That was exciting, but let's head back, shall we?
And with Vyrn pinned tightly to her body, Katalina steps into the hole.
Ferry?: We should go too.
Jin?: Mm. Although I must admit coming here was extremely gratifying.
Lyria: Wh-what was that all about?
Katalina: I have no idea...
Jin: So that was me...
Jin: If I do not reevaluate my discipline, I may end up like that.
Vyrn: What am I?
Vyrn: Can I do stuff like that if I train hard enough?
But his words are soon lost like flower petals scattering into the wind.
Whether Vyrn is able to evolve into something more is a difficult question.
A question that no one, not even Vyrn himself, knows the answer to.
We've got a new, epic epilogue in store for ya... You sure you wanna skip this?
Some time has passed since the slightly different Vyrn, Katalina, Jin, and Ferry made their way back.
With peace having returned to the Grandcypher, Lyria lets out a heartfelt sigh.
Lyria: Isn't it such a relief, (Captain)? Especially with the clear weather and crisp, blue skies...
After a glance at (Captain), Lyria casts her eyes around the deck.
Lyria: Where's Vyrn?
(Captain) joins Lyria in looking for the wee dragon, but he is nowhere to be seen.
Lyria: Where could he have gone?
Choose: Let's go find our little friend.
Lyria: Yeah. Let's do that.
Lyria: Teehee, you and Vyrn sure do get along well! You two are practically always together!
Choose: He'll be back soon enough.
Lyria: Yeah... Maybe he just needed some alone time.Continue 1
Vyrn: Heyo! What're you two up to?
Lyria: Ah, Vyrn! Where were you?
Vyrn: Hm? Nowhere really.
Lyria: Vyrn, don't tell me...
Vyrn: Wh-what is it?
Lyria: You were snacking on apples in the storage room again, weren't you?
Vyrn: No way.
Lyria: You have to stop doing that! It's almost lunchtime after all!
Vyrn: Hey, I'm innocent here!
Lyria: Teehee, good to hear!
Lyria: Speaking of the storage room...
Lyria: Katalina and Rackam said it needs a good cleaning.
Lyria: Since we're free right now, why don't we get a start on it?
Vyrn: Mm... Storage?
Lyria: Do you have something else to do, Vyrn?
Vyrn: Not really—it just sounds like more trouble than it's worth...
Lyria: Hey, that's not a nice thing to say! Come on, we have to help.
Lyria: Right, (Captain)?
Choose: It's on us to make it spick-and-span!
Lyria: Yeah, let's do our best!
Vyrn: See? I'm not the only one.
Lyria: You too, (Captain)? Come on, you guys!
Lyria: We're definitely helping with cleanup!Continue 2
Lyria grabs (Captain)'s hand and makes her way toward the storage room's cabin door, a spring in her step.
Vyrn stays behind, his gaze fixed on the two as they move forward.
Vyrn: Just a little longer until my power returns...
Vyrn: I might as well play nice until then.
His low mutter is inaudible to (Captain) and Lyria.
Lyria: Vyrn! Come on, we're going in!
Lyria turns back to wave at Vyrn.
Vyrn: Right behind ya!
(Captain) and company are awestruck at the spectacle before them when they open the door.
Lyria: Are you okay?
Lancelot?: Ngh... I-I'm okay...
Lyria: Why are you chained to the wall? Who would possibly...
Lancelot?: I wonder myself...
Lyria: Hm? You mean you don't know?
Lancelot?: Some things are better left unsaid.
Lyria: What's that supposed to mean?
Choose: Lyria, I'm not sure I want to know...
Lancelot?: Yes, let's just leave it at that.
Choose: Now we're really curious.
Lancelot?: As curious as you may be... I'm afraid I have nothing to say on the matter.
Lancelot?: Forgive me.Continue 3
Lyria: Now I'm just confused...
Lyria: Weren't you going shopping with Io?
Rosetta?: Oh, was I?
Lyria: So... you don't need to go anymore?Choose: That's the real Vyrn!
Rosetta?: I suppose not.
Lyria: Um...Choose: I don't know!
Lyria: Ah, I almost forgot about Lancelot!
Rosetta?: What is he even doing? Is that some sort of newfangled exercise?
Rosetta?: Mind if I join in?
Lyria: Erm... Taking off the chains comes first!
Lancelot?: No, I'm fine like this.
Lyria: How could you be! You're nearly falling apart!
Lyria: Let's see...
Lyria: They're so tight...
Rosetta props Lyria up, preventing her from tumbling to the ground.
Rosetta?: Are you okay?
Lyria: Yes! Thank you.
Lyria's relief lasts but a moment.
Lancelot's body plunges forward, along with the chunk of wall still attached to him.
Lyria: What just...
Lancelot plants his lower body firmly to the ground, preventing himself from collapsing face forward.
Lancelot?: My apologies. Are you hurt?
Lyria: I'm okay! Rosetta helped me keep my balance.
Lancelot?: Glad to hear it.
Rosetta?: M-my back...
Lyria: What's wrong with your back! Will you be okay?
Lancelot?: Forgive me! To think that my fettered state would cause such—
Rosetta?: That's not it!
Rosetta?: My back doesn't hurt in the slightest! Mm-hm! In fact, I feel great!
Lyria: That's good to hear... But just take it easy, okay?
Rosetta?: Heh heh, of course.
Lyria: Lancelot's chains won't come off, but at least the wall moves with him.
Lyria: Wait... Where'd that chunk of wall come from anyway?
Lyria: It doesn't seem to be a part of the storage room...
Lancelot?: Well, that's because the wall came with me.
Lyria: The wall came with you?
Vyrn: Uh-oh, could you possibly be—
Vyrn: What was that?
The sudden destructive clamor sends planks and dust flying through the air.
Vyrn: Oh snap!
???: Don't think you can get away from my fancy alchemy!
Vyrn is sent flying by a mysterious figure breaking through the ground.
Katalina?: My dear Vyrrrn!
Lyria: V-Vyrn? Are you okay?
Cagliostro?: Did you really take him to be the Vyrn of this world?
Lyria: But the other Vyrn should have returned already...
Lyria: Wait, Cagliostro... Why are you dressed like that?
Cagliostro?: Ah... I bet I'm so cute you want to make me the star character of your crew...
Lyria: Star character? What?
Cagliostro?: Well, to put it simply—
Vyrn: Gah! Lemme go!
Katalina?: Vyrn, Vyrn, Vyrrrn!
Vyrn: Drats! There goes my plan!
Lyria: Yikes... Vyrn!
Lyria: Um! Your Vyrn should have returned already!
Lyria: So please give us back our Vyrn!
Katalina?: Ah, my sweet Vyrn...
Cagliostro?: Sigh... Can't you tell from Katalina's reaction? He's obviously our Vyrn!
Lyria: You mean... as in the Vyrn from your world? This is so confusing...
Lyria: Where did our Vyrn go then?
Lyria: What's that voice?
Lyria: It's coming from over here...
Far back in the storage room is the other Vyrn, tied to the wall with a gag over his mouth.
Lyria: How did this happen? Hold on, Vyrn. I'll untie you right away!
Vyrn: Lyria! (Captain)!
Lyria: Vyrn! How did this happen?
Vyrn: I was captured! By me! And then I...
Lyria: Whoa, whoa, whoa! Please slow down, Vyrn!
Vyrn: The one who did this to me is me! Can you believe it? Me!
Vyrn?: I was so close!
Lyria: Yikes! Vyrn just transformed!
Vyrn: Hey, me! What exactly were you scheming by pretending to be me?
Vyrn?: I needed to blend in while waiting for my power to recover.
Lyria: If your power returned, we'd have to deal with a pain train of hurt all over again!
Cagliostro?: Hey! If we're done here, can we head back already?
Cagliostro?: I could use a beauty nap!
Katalina?: Hehehe... Shall we go home, Vyrn?
Vyrn?: Gwuh! Not just yet!
Cagliostro?: I guess it's goodbye for the ever-adorable Cagliostro! Buh-bye!
Lancelot?: Perhaps I should return as well.
Lyria: Huh? Wait, you're from that world too, Lancelot?
Lancelot?: Yes. I was caught up in the dimensional strain that occurred when Katalina went searching for Vyrn.
Lyria: D-dimensional strain?
Rosetta?: Mm-hm, it's not too different from pelvic strain.
Lyria: What? Pelvic sprain?
Lancelot?: Anyhow, I apologize for ruining a fine day. Farewell.
Lyria: Um, don't tell me you're also...
Rosetta?: Hehe, nice seeing you.
Rosetta?: Sullen Warp!
Lyria: Rosetta too, huh...
Vyrn: Geez, what was that all about?
Vyrn: I'd say I've had enough of me for one day...
Lyria: Anyway, let's not forget what we came here to do.
The storage room is in shambles, made especially apparent by the giant hole in the ground.
Vyrn: Whoa... We'd better plug that thing fast!
Lyria: Well, we were going to clean up in here anyway...
Vyrn: I'd say this goes far beyond cleaning.
Lyria: Let's get to it.
Still baffled by the events of the day, the three listlessly resume cleanup duties.
