Happy birthday!
Today is your day! Let's celebrate!


Happy! Birth! Day! To you!
Heheheh! How do you like this pose? Pretty cool, huh?
It's my birthday present to you! You can strike this pose anytime you like!


Happy birthday, (Captain)! I've saved up my best lines for you on this special day!
Are you ready for this? Ahem.
A free-spirited warrior who soars above the clouds and captures the hearts of every ally ever met! A young hero with clearly no equal in any nook of the vast blue expanse!
The one! The only! Sky Ranger...
Huff... Huff... Phew, ran out of breath putting everything I had into that one...
It'd totally make my day if you got up on the big stage and showed off that pose I gave you last year!


Happy birthday, (Captain)! Let's make this day a super-duper-awesome fun day!
And that calls for a super-duper-awesome present. Which I have right here!
Ta-da! It's a bandana. Jasmine made it for you. Vyrn did his share too of course.
Someday me, Jade, you, and Vyrn will don our bandanas and form the ultimate ranger squad!
Hahaha! Man, I just can't wait!


(Captain), happy birthday! Prepare yourself for a present like you've never seen before!
Ta-daaa! Get a load of this! I drew you a picture!
Look, there's me and you and Jade and Vyrn. We're rangers, protecting the forest! Heh heh. It's my greatest masterpiece!
Cause usually, I only draw scenery. Took me a bajillion tries before I got this one down pat!
Soon, we're gonna be great heroes, just like in this picture! Am I right, or am I right!

Happy New Year Cutscenes

Happy New Year!
There's kite flying, badminton, and pin the tail on the donkey... Your pick! I won't lose!


Happy New Year!
And many more to come!
Mmm! Feels like a fresh start!
I heard that people like to visit shrines or get New Year's fortunes to celebrate.
Heheheh! I'll show you the luck of a wild spirited, valiant woodland warrior and forest ranger!
Whoa! I got the luckiest fortune!
I'm the best! Did you see, (Captain)?


Happy New Year! Come on, let's go pull our fortunes for this year!
My fortune came out as super good luck last year. You think I can't pull it off again two years in a row? Hey, you know I don't play by the rules!
Heh-heh-heh! I'll show you how I roll!
Whoa! Did... did I really just get the same awesome luck twice?
I'm the man! And I'm also a little scared! What do you make of this, (Captain)?


Happy New Year! Something tells me this one's gonna be jam-packed with adventure!
Heh! It's the first day of the year, but it's already filled with excitement.
I wanted to give New Year's money to all the kids on the ship, and more than last year too. But then I realized that would totally clean me out.
But a ranger never gives up! So I decided to have a giant New Year's cash blowout.
Sigh, I wanted a new scarf for myself...


(Captain), happy New Year! You ready for an adventure? 'Cause that's our first order business!
Heh-heh-heh. 'Course, the first dream I had this year was all about adventuring. It's only natural for a great ranger like me!
Man, it was awesome. I was so wild and free—running through forests, climbing up mountains, and rafting down rivers...
Hm? Well, look at that face. You can hardly wait to set out!
All right, then! Let's turn my dream into reality! Off to the forest we go!

Valentine's Day Cutscenes
# Link Text

It's Valentine's Day! Doesn't chocolate sure taste great?
So, you know, you could give me some if you'd like!


I love chocolate whether it's sweet milk chocolate or rich dark chocolate!
I'll take whatever you've got, (Captain)! So let's have it!


He's a brave warrior of the forest and glorious chocolate connoisseur! The one! The only!
Sweet-Tooth Ranger Walder!
I've been waiting for this, (Captain)! Thank you as always!
Seriously, I gave up chocolate for a whole month for this moment!
As I watched the ranks of our crew grow, I thought to myself: maybe I'll get nothing this year. The feels, you know? The feels...
Boy am I glad I trusted you all along! Time to clog my heart with chocolate!


H-huh! Chocolates for me again this year?
I never would've thought that (Captain) could think of me as more than a...
Wait... Don't get carried away. This is a place for Ranger Deep Breathing!
(First I should say thanks and make small talk to see what's really going on here...)
(But what about me? What am I even trying to do here?)
Ah... Gaaasp! Darn, I held my breath too long...


Wh-what! (Captain)! Again? For me?
C-could it be? Does (Captain) feel that way... About me?
Huh? What? It's nothing! Look! Here's my appreciation pose!
Thank you, (Captain)!
(I-it's no good! Doesn't feel as sharp as usual... Why won't my body listen to me!)
(My heart's beating fast... My face is heating up... Just what does my body think it's doing?)

White Day Cutscenes
# Link Text

Today is White Day!
So here's a White Day present from your favorite forest ranger! Go on and take it!
Do you like it? Glad to hear it!


You see... I wanted this to express how much I care about you. So please take it!
We're close friends now, (Captain), but telling you that still makes my cheeks turn red!


He's a brave warrior of the forest and rememberer of important dates! The one! The only!
Gentleman Ranger Walder!
Here you go, (Captain). I ventured into the city again to buy you this White Day present.
I was in a hurry, you know? Still haven't gotten used to all the crowds and stuff, so I didn't actually look at the price tag when I grabbed it...
Um, well, what I'm trying to say is it's super nice! Don't let the cost hold you back from eating them!


(Captain), I brought you something for White Day! This year you get Ranger Sweetums!
I bake egg whites, sugar, and almond, then stick two together with cream filling. They come in all different colors.
H-huh? Macarons? You mean they're already a thing?
Heh... Then I'll rename mine Ranger Macarons! They're as tasty as it comes!


(Captain)! Hold out your hands!
Heh. You know who I am, don't you?
Yes, I am none other than he! The valiant woodland warrior... Forest ranger Walder!
This year's Ranger Sweets are really something to behold! They're bursting with goodies from the forest.
I'm talking pies chock full of fruits and nuts from trees, cookies overflowing with honey from flowers... You won't find anything tastier!
If you want, I can make you more any time! Don't be shy, okay?

Trick or Treat Cutscenes

Trick or treat!
Will you give me candy? Or will you take a chance with my special forest ranger traps? The choice is yours!


Halloween Ranger Walder has finally arrived!
Come at me with all you've got! I'll defend this candy with my life!


He's a brave warrior of the forest and unholy trickster!
The one! The only! Halloween Ranger Walder!
Heh... Our airship has a lot of kids, but compared to them I'm a real monster.
Why you ask? Because I have an insatiable appetite for sweets! I want more! More! Mooore!
Let the assault on the doors of the adult's rooms commence! Rangers away, (Captain)!


Heh, nothing beats Halloween. It gives me a chance to polish my reconnaissance skills!
See, I could hide on that street corner there, lie in wait for potential victims, and then jump-scare them at the right moment—
Huh? Looks like there's already some thing standing on the corner...
Whoa! I-it just moved!
Waaaugh! A ghoulie! Somebody save meee!


(Captain)! Trick or-
Choose: Trick or treat!
What! You one-upped me!
Candy? Ha! I was born to eat candy! I don't just give it away.
I-I guess I don't have a choice. Alright, (Captain). Hit me with your best trick!
And so Walder is gallantly pranked by (Captain).
The two friends let loose peals of laughter that go ringing into the night. But the Halloween festivities are only just beginning...
You... have no intention of forgetting about that prank, do you?
Wehh... Go easy on me, pretty please!

Happy Holidays Cutscenes
# Link Text

Happy holidays!
Did you get any presents from Santa? I sure did!


The city sure is bustling with cheer this evening!
And the decorations everywhere look great!
I can't wait to show Jade one day... Oh! That's right!
Hey, (Captain). Wanna decorate my forest back home next year for the holidays?
The forest is pretty big! It'll be plenty of fun!


Hey, (Captain). Do you remember what I said last year?
I asked you to help me decorate my forest so that Jade could see a winter wonderland.
Well, things are kinda different now. I want to ask you guys again, but not until we can get Jade on the decoration team.
That'd be awesome. With Vyrn and Lyria and Jade working together... Yeah, it'd be the greatest winter celebration of all time.
Ho, ho, ho! Can't wait for fun times ahead!


(Captain), perfect timing! Would you mind helping out?
I want to give some holiday presents to the kids in the crew... But I noticed a little problem.
To do things the traditional way, you need to climb down a chimney and sneak the gifts into stockings.
But this ship doesn't have a chimney... That's why I've decided to add on a chimney to everyone's quarters! You can help me lay the bricks.
Hm? That would push the ship over the weight limit? And it's weird to sneak into people's rooms in the first place?
Waaaugh! That makes sense when you put it like that. So how should I hand over the presents?


Ha-hah! I sure love strollin' around town during the holiday season! We're all havin' so much fun! Ahahaha!
Haha... It's so shiny and sparkly... And there's a sea of people... Weeh...
I-I'm fine! A little crowd's not gonna scare me!
Why, you ask? Well!
I am an agent of the holidays, charged with the grave task of retrieving goods for the party...
Yes! I am none other than the great party ranger, Walder!
Let's head out, (Captain)! Preferably at a fast clip!

Fate Episodes

Spoiler Alert!
These tabs contain full Fate Episode cutscene scripts with major spoilers about the character. View these tabs at your own discretion.

The Daring Summer Warrior

Walder discards his swimsuit-induced shame to save children drowning in the sea. He then accepts his role as a ranger of the sea, beginning swim practice in earnest.

Sierokarte: Ooh, this is a problem. What to do, what to do...
Lyria: What's wrong, Siero? And where's Walder?
Sierokarte: That's actually part of the problem, Lyria. You see...
(Captain) and company visit Yudhisthira Island, a resort in the Auguste Isles.
But soon after arriving at the island's famous beaches, a problem occurs.
Sierokarte: You see... Walder won't come out of the changing room.
???: P-People actually wear these in public? Is this what they do at this so-called beach?
Sierokarte: Yes, indeed... Personally, I'm kinda into it!
Lyria: Huh?
Vyrn: There's trouble! Some kids are drowning over on the other side!
Walder: Children are in danger?
Vyrn: Hey, Walder, hang on there, buddy!
Walder: Are you okay, lad?
Kid 1: Huff... Hack! Cough! W-who are you, mister?
Walder: Me? I am the valiant woodland warrior! Walder... the forest ranger!
Kid 2: Oh my gosh... You're so cool!
Vyrn: Heh, it's just like Walder to go running off as soon as he hears kids are in danger.
Sierokarte: You're awfully dependable, but will you be okay in the water? It's pretty deep out there!
Walder: As long as I have my trusty swim ring, I'll be fine!
Walder: What the? These waves are inhuman! Hbblb!
Lyria: Oh gosh! We need to rescue him, quick!
Walder and the children are eventually rescued by some island fishermen.
Lady: Thank you so much! Honestly, I don't know how I can possibly thank you for saving my little brother.
Walder: Pay it no mind! This is but a mere trifle for the mighty Forest Ranger!
Walder: If you're ever in trouble, just call my name... Walder the Forest Ranger!
And so, Walder comes to the rescue only to vanish once again, leaving the people wanting more.
Sierokarte: Teeheehee! So, where do you think you're going?
Walder: Oh, uh, I managed to look pretty cool there, so I thought I'd change back and return to the ship.
Lyria: But you just changed into your swimsuit! We should hang out on the beach!
Vyrn: Yeah! Wouldn't you agree, (Captain)?
  1. Let's hang out!
  2. Not a fan of the sea?

Choose: Let's hang out!
Walder: W-Wait! I can't walk around in this getup! It's... too embarrassing...

Choose: Not a fan of the sea?
Walder: The sea is just fine! It's just... y'know... This getup.
Continue 1
Sierokarte: Oh my! And after I had that swimsuit custom-made for you, too!
Walder: You made this just for me?
Sierokarte: Yes, indeed! I wanted something that captured the wild spirit of a valiant woodland warrior!
Walder: In that case, the great Walder can't possibly not wear it!
Walder: Why, it just screams wild! In fact, I think I'm going to show it off... generously!
Walder: Let's go, (Captain)! First things first. Swim practice in the shallows!
Vyrn: Hold on a minute! Aaand he's gone. He's a fast one!
Lyria: We'd better get going, too! Come on, (Captain)!
(Captain) and the others begin swim practice with Walder. First the kiddie pool, then the world...

Behold the Ocean Ranger!

Feeling overwhelmed by tourists on the beach, Walder notices beautiful seashells in the sand. He begins gathering them as a gift for Jade.

Lyria: The sea is such an incredible place! Hey Katalina, wanna go see if we can find any fishes to swim alongside?
Katalina: Yes, I'm looking forward to it. Something tells me we've got quite the fun experience in store for us.
Vyrn: Yeah! It's a big, blue ocean out there! Let's go, Walder!
Walder: I-I'm fine...
The beach is filled with many tourists enjoying their vacations.
Overwhelmed by the spectacle, Walder begins to withdraw when he suddenly notices something.
Walder: Hm? Hey, Vyrn! Look at that!
Walder: There's something shining in the sand!
Vyrn: Wow! Why is there something so pretty stuck in the sand?
Walder: There's more over there!
Walder: Haha! You'd never find something like this in the forest!
Vyrn: Walder, someone must have buried some hidden treasure around here!
Walder: Yeah, and just you watch, Vyrn! I'm gonna dig it up!
Vyrn: All right! I'll help out, too!
Katalina: What's going on, you two? Did you find something in the sand?
Walder: Yeah, take a look at this! It's some kind of treasure fragment!
Lyria: Oh my gosh, it's so glittery and pretty!
Walder: Heheh! You are truly blessed to have witnessed a discovery of the great Walder!
Katalina: Exaggerating as always, I see. I take it you've never seen seashells before?
Walder: Seashells?
Katalina: That's what those are called. They wash up from the sea, and while their shapes and sizes vary, they all possess a unique beauty.
Lyria: Wow, you know everything, Katalina!
Lyria: Look, (Captain)! I found some seashells here, too!
Walder: So these aren't treasures? You can find them everywhere?
Katalina: Heheh, no need to get depressed, Walder.
Lyria: Yup! You can't find them in the forest, right? How about you bring some to your friend Jade as a souvenir?
Walder: Now that's an idea! I'm sure Jade would love it.
Walder: It's decided, then! I'll gather as many seashells as I can, in the name of Jade!
Vyrn: We'll help out too! Let's race to see who can gather the most!

Behold the Ocean Ranger!: Scene 2

Walder realizes to his horror that the seashells he gathered have been pulverized in the previous battle. He has no choice but to go into shell hunting overdrive.

Walder: I never imagined there would be monsters in the sand...
Walder: Your attempts to ambush the great forest ranger will end only in failure!
Vyrn: Uh oh! We've got trouble!
Walder: What's going on? More monsters?
Vyrn: No, uh... The seashells we gathered got pulverized during the fight with those monsters.
Walder: After I went to so much trouble gathering them for Jade? How can this be?
Katalina: Don't feel down. You can always gather them again!
Lyria: That's right! You might find even prettier ones this time!
Walder: You're right! It'll take more than that to make me give up!
Walder: Just you watch, (Captain)! I'll find a seashell incredible enough to take Jade completely by surprise!
Vyrn: Haha! That's the spirit!
Walder: Hm? I thought I saw something glitter over there...
Walder: That glitter in the sand can only be one thing, (Captain)!
Walder: It must be an absolutely gigantic seashell!
Vyrn: I bet Jade would be overjoyed to see something that amazing!
Walder: I can just picture her surprised expression!
Katalina: Don't get ahead of yourself! There are still sand monsters to worry about!
Katalina: Sigh... There he goes. Let's help them out, (Captain).

Behold the Ocean Ranger!: Scene 3

Walder becomes the talk of the beach after his fight with the monsters, forcing him back into his shell. The nearby cries of endangered children, however, cause him to spring back into action.

Katalina: Well that was a surprise. I'm just glad we encountered those monsters in a deserted area.
Vyrn: Phew... So the light we saw wasn't a seashell, but a monster!
Walder: Accursed beast! How dare you assume the form of a seashell in an attempt to lure me to my doom!
Vyrn: It was just an honest mistake, really. We all thought it was a seashell in there.
Vacationer 1: That was so cool! You must be super strong if you managed to beat that monster!
Walder: Huh? Er, uh...
Vacationer 2: Wow! This area's off limits due to monster infestation, but you walked in here like it was nothing!
Vyrn: Now I get it! No wonder this area was deserted!
Vacationer 2: Thanks to you, we can have fun here without a care in the world!
Walder: Uh, I didn't do anything, really...
Vyrn: Walder sure is popular all of a sudden!
Vacationer 1: Hey, handsome! Why don't we go somewhere together?
Walder: Together? Well, um! About that!
Vacationer 2: You're awfully shy considering the way you're dressed...
Walder: L-Lay off me!
Walder: The beach is scary... Strangers are scary... I wanna go back to the forest...
Vyrn: Oof... Looks like Walder's paralyzed with fear.
Monster: Groooar!
Child: Aiieeee!
Lyria: O-oh no! They're being attacked by a water monster!
Walder: Hold on! I'm coming to help!
Vyrn: Okay, let's help him out, (Captain)!

Behold the Ocean Ranger!: Scene 4

How can Walder be a forest ranger when there's no forest? To answer this question, Walder assumes the new title of ocean ranger!

Child: Thanks for saving me, mister! You were super cool!
Walder: But of course! Because I am Walder, the brash and daring ranger of the forest!
Child: Ranger of the forest? We're at the beach, mister!
Walder: Gasp, y-you're right! What should I do?
Vyrn: Just say you're the ranger of the ocean today!
Lyria: Yup! And you're super popular after beating those monsters, too!
Walder: O-ocean... ranger?
Vyrn: You okay? You sound kinda mad...
Walder: Heh... Heheh! The ocean ranger, huh? I like the sound of that!
Walder: Very well! I am Walder, the brash and daring ranger of the ocean! Leave the protection of these fair seas up to me!
Vyrn: You get to just change your name whenever you want?
Lyria: Oh my gosh, that's such a cool name, Walder!
As the ocean ranger, Walder overcame countless obstacles...
Few would imagine that his name would go on to become a legend spoken of only in whispers...
Vyrn: Hey! You're narrating yourself again!
Katalina: No need to complain, Vyrn. He earned it this time.
Lyria: And it seems like Walder's finally overcome his fear of the sea, too!
Walder: Whoa! Um, (Captain)? H-help!
Vacationer 1: Wait for me! I'm coming with you!
Vyrn: Heheh! He's still got a long way to go until he's used to being popular, though!
His adventures at the beach will become a story for Jade. The perfect accompaniment to the hard fought souvenir he found for his friend.
