(Captain) and company arrive at a remote village to complete a mission. They meet Sen, a girl who displays cat-like mannerisms toward the villagers. Burning with the desire to see the world outside of her village, she asks to join the crew. She lacks common sense, but the crew gladly takes her in.
Vyrn: Huff, puff. Ugh, are we there yet?
Lyria: Ugh... This mountain trail is tough.
(Captain) and company need to make a delivery to a village nestled deep within the mountains.
Vyrn: Haa, are you sure, haa, this is the right way?
The steep trail becomes impassable. The party lets out a deep sigh.
Lyria: Hm? Did you hear something, just now?
Vyrn: Like what?
Vyrn: Ack! There's something over there!
Lyria: Ah! It's coming closer!
Lyria: Er, it's a girl?
An Erune girl darts out from among the trees.
???: Uhh... Umm...
The bewildered young girl suddenly straightens up and then bows to the group.
???: Ahem. Good day!
Vyrn: Hey! ...Wait a sec, don't go greeting us like that! You scared the heck out of us!
???: I'm sorry, I didn't mean to.
Vyrn: What're you doing out in the boonies all by yourself?
???: Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Sen. I live in the village up ahead.
Lyria: Nice to meet you, Sen. I'm Lyria, and this is (Captain). And that's Vyrn!
Vyrn: Yeah! ...Hey, hold on! Isn't that the village we need to get to?
The crew explain their business to Sen and she agrees to take them to her village.
Sen: It's not too far from here. Please follow me.
Sen: It's just a little further. It's kind of slippery, so please watch your step.
Vyrn: Thanks! You got us out of a jam!
Lyria: Yeah, thanks a lot, Sen!
Sen: Please, don't mention it. Ok, we're here.
Lyria: Huh? We're here but...
A huge cliff towers over the party. There's nothing resembling a road in sight.
Vyrn: Uhh. All I see is a cliff. Am I missing something?
Sen: No, we just need to go up.
Sen non-chalantly points to the cliff.
Vyrn: Come on, there's no way we can climb that!
Lyria: Yeah, I think it's impossible.
Sen: Oh? You don't normally climb cliffs?
Lyria: Sorry to say, but I've never climbed one before.
Vyrn: Well... I can fly, so it's no big deal for me. But it might be tough for these guys.
Sen: I'm sorry, I didn't think about that. Okay, please wait here. I'll be back soon.
Sen apologizes quietly then turns to face the cliffside. Without hesitation, she begins to scale the cliff effortlessly.
Vyrn: That's amazing...
Lyria: Ah, it's because of her long claws. She kind of looks like a cat.
Vyrn: Hah, you got that right. She's so fast!
Sen returns with several rope ladders, and the exhausted, but safe, crew finally arrive at the village.
Vyrn: Phew! Another job in the bag!
Lyria: Hehe, we also have to thank Sen for helping us!
Vyrn: You're right! Let's go find her and thank her.
The sounds of panic and confusion can be heard not far away.
Vyrn: Gah! It's a monster! Okay, (Captain), let's get it!
Just as they are about to run in, a small shadow dances before their eyes.
Sen: Whew. Is anybody injured?
Villager 1: Oooh, that's our Sen! But something's off about the way you're talking.
Sen: Ngh. Uh, ahem. Looks like I made it just in the nick of time... meow.
Villager 1: Wahaha! That's better! Don't forget, we're counting on you!
Vyrn: Hm, I wonder what they were talking about. Eh, whatever.
Vyrn: You did it, Sen! That was amazing! You took it down in one hit!
Lyria: Yeah, that was great! You're so strong!
Sen: Oh no, it was nothing. I'm used to the monsters around here.
- I could've done that.
- That was cool!
Vyrn: Oooh, looks like [:nicknames]'s got some competition!Choose: I could've done that.
Lyria: Hehe. We know you're tough, (Captain), but Sen's tough too!Choose: That was cool!
Lyria: Yeah! You're amazing!Continue 1
Vyrn: Yeah! I'm totally speechless!
Sen: Umm... Well! I... uhh...
Sen: Umm... Please excuse me!
Vyrn: Ah, she ran away. She was probably embarrassed or something.
Lyria: Hee hee. Sen's strong, and sweet, and soooo cute!
And so, with everything taken care of, the party prepares to leave the village. They run into Sen at the edge of the village.
Lyria: Hey, Sen! What's the matter?
Sen: I heard that all of you are skyfarers. Are you traveling on an airship?
Vyrn: Yeah, we're on a journey! (Captain)'s our captain.
Sen: I see. Then, could you take me along on your journey, too?
Lyria: You want to join us, Sen?
Sen: Yes. I like my life in the village, but I also yearn to see the outside world.
Sen: I can use my fighting skills too, so I'll try not to get in your way. So please, let me join your crew!
Choose: Welcome aboard.
- Welcome aboard.
- Are you sure you're ready for this?
Vyrn: Hehe, if (Captain) says so then I'm all in!
Lyria: Yay, yay! Sen's part of the crew!Choose: Are you sure you're ready for this?
Sen: Yes! I'll do my best!
Vyrn: Aww, let her come. Don't worry, Sen, (Captain) wants you to come too!Continue 2
Sen: Thank you, everyone!
Sen bows quickly. At the same time, a villager places his hand lightly on her shoulder.
Villager 2: So you've finally decided to go on a journey, eh, Sen?
Sen: Yes. I will follow these skyfarers.
Villager 2: Sigh. I understand. It'll be lonely, but you really want to see the world, don't you? Take care of yourself.
Sen: Thank you. I will.
Villager 2: Oh, one last thing. Can you do that thing for me before you go?
Sen: Um... That thing? Right now?
Villager 2: I won't be able to hear it anymore, you know. Come on, Sen.
Vyrn: Huh? What's that thing?
Lyria: I wonder what it is...
Sen: Ngh... fine. Ahem. I'll be on my way... meow.
Villager 2: Bwahaha! Safe travels, Sen!
With a final pat on Sen's shoulder, the villager walks away. Her face is flushed with embarassment.
Vyrn: Hey, hey. What was that? You also said that after you beat up that monster.
Sen: Well... in the past, they kept saying that I was very cat-like, so I spoke like a cat for them.
Sen: But it's so embarrassing...
Vyrn: Oh, I get it. Yeah, I can see a bit of cat in you.
Sen: Do you really think I resemble a cat? Am I really that ferocious?
Lyria: Ferocious? What do you mean?
Hearing Sen's explanation, it seems that she's only familiar with the wildcats in the mountains.
Lyria: Hrm... the cats we're thinking of are smaller and cuter. There are lots of them!
Sen: Oh, really?
Vyrn: Yeah, yeah! You'll probably see some on our journey!
Vyrn: By the way, Sen, I think you agree to things way too quickly...
The return trip goes more smoothly thanks to Sen's knowledge of the area.
Sen: We'll reach the base of the mountain soon.
Vyrn: Really? You'd better not be taking us to another cliff.
Sen: Don't worry, I remember. Normal people can't go up and down cliffs like I can.
Vyrn: Hm? What's up? Why did you suddenly stop?
Sen: Shh! Please be quiet.
Sen scans the area with a serious look on her face.
Lyria: What's wrong? Is it a monster?
Sen: Ah ha, found you!
Following Sen's gaze, the crew sees a big boar by a grove of trees.
Sen: I'm going to grab it!
Vyrn: Hold on! Ah, she's gone.
Lyria: Yeah, she's long gone. You know, from the back, she really does look a cat.
The abandoned and dumbfounded crew watches Sen disappear into the trees.
Vyrn: Anyway, it'd be bad if we got ourselves lost, so let's just wait here for now.
Soon enough, Sen reappears.
Lyria: There you are!
Sen: I'm back! Look what I brought, everyone!
Sen drags back the boar from before. She has a triumphant look on her face.
Sen: Boars are especially delicious this time of year.
Vyrn: Mm-hm. Now I know why Sen's so strong.
Sen: Hm? Is something wrong? Gasp! Don't tell me you hate boar meat!
Lyria: No no, that's not it!
Vyrn: Nod. Thanks for the boar but we get worried when someone runs off alone like that, you know?
Sen: That makes sense. Sorry. I'll be more careful.
Sen joins the crew. She's polite, but she definitely lacks common sense.
The crew knows that she has spent all her life living in the mountains, and will surely need time to adjust.
One Cool Cat
Lyria and Vyrn worry about Sen, who is napping outside on a cold day. Luckily, Sen is skilled at finding warm spots to rest in, and shows Lyria her technique. Vyrn and Lyria's discussion about Sen's resemblance to a cat is cut short by a monster attack.
It's a particularly chilly day.
Vyrn: Yo, Sen! What are you doing out there? Hello?
Sen: Zzz... zzz...
Lyria: I think she's taking a cat nap. She's going to catch a cold, though.
Vyrn: Leave it to me. Yo! Wake up!
Sen: Grumble... Ngh... Oh, it's you Vyrn. Hey, Lyria.
Vyrn: Are you up?
Sen: Yawn. Yes, good morning. I must've dozed off...
Lyria: You shouldn't sleep out here, especially on a cold day like this. You're going to get sick.
Sen: I know, but it's nice and warm.
Sen pulls her knees in tightly and sits in the sunlight. Lyria tries it too.
Lyria: You're right, it really is warm! You sure are good at discovering these things.
Vyrn: Ha ha, yeah, Sen. This is another thing that makes you cat-like.
Vyrn: Hey, do that thing you did for the villagers! You know, where you go meow.
Sen: Er... Uh... Well...
Vyrn: Pretty please?
Sen: Ungh... Okay, meow. How's this, meow?
Lyria: Aww, that's so cute, Sen! You sound just like a cat!
Sen: Ugh, it's so embarrassing.
Vyrn: Hahaha! It fits you perfectly!
Their laughter is interrupted when the Grandcypher suddenly begins shaking violently.
Lyria: Woah! What's going on?
Vyrn: Look! Monsters!
Sen: Let's go, (Captain)!
One Cool Cat: Scene 2
Having been raised in the wilderness, Sen is not used to being around large crowds. As the crew walks down a busy street, a thief grabs a purse and the crew gives chase. Thinking quickly, Sen climbs up to the rooftops to cut off the thief while the crew traps him from behind.
Sen: Phew, looks like we beat them.
Vyrn: Thank goodness! You're reliable as always, Sen. Oh, perfect timing. I can see the next island!
The party docks the Grandcypher and heads into the city to resupply.
Sen: Wow, what a big street! There's so many people here.
The street teems with people coming and going. Sen's eyes dart around restlessly.
Vyrn: Oh yeah... You're not used to being around so many people, are you?
Sen: Yes, there's no place like this in the mountains. Ah, can you please wait a minute, (Captain)?
Sen clutches the back of (Captain)'s clothes and follows closely behind, as if trying to hide.
Vyrn: I guess you could say the cat's out of the bag!
Lyria: Er, what do you mean, Vyrn?
Vyrn: Well, what I mean is...
???: Aieeee! Help! Someone stop him! He stole my purse!
The woman's scream echoes through the street.
Vyrn: A purse snatcher?
Lyria: Where... where... Ah-ha! I think it's him, over there!
Sen: Come on, (Captain), we have to catch him!
The party chases after the fleeing criminal.
Vyrn: Shoot! He's getting away!
Lyria: Yeah, he's gonna try to lose us in that narrow alleyway!
Sen: I got it! Let's do a pincer attack, (Captain)!
Vyrn: What? But how...
Sen: I'll go around!
Sen scales the wall in an instant and goes around to cut off the thief.
Vyrn: Well, there she goes. Doing something cool, as usual. Okay you guys, charge!
One Cool Cat: Scene 3
The purse snatcher is apprehended. The people in the streets who witnessed Sen's incredible movements heap praise upon an embarrassed Sen, who hastily escapes from the adulation back to the Grandcypher. When the crew returns, she snuggles up to the warmth of Lyria and (Captain), warming everyone's hearts.
The party catches the purse snatcher and returns the stolen purse to the local police.
Woman: Thank goodness you stopped him. You really helped me out.
Vyrn: Don't mention it!
Sen: We're glad you and your belongings are safe and sound.
Woman: I can't thank you enough.
Passerby 1: Hey, you! You were crazy awesome back there!
Sen: Huh? You mean me?
Passerby 2: Oh yeah, I saw it too! You were all like, zoom! Straight up the wall!
Passerby 1: Man, you were gone in the blink of an eye. I couldn't believe it.
Little Kid: That was soooo cool! How did you do that?
Sen: Um, well, I...
A large crowd of people suddenly swarm around Sen. She recoils from the overwhelming attention.
Vyrn: This isn't good. At this rate, she's going to freak out.
Sen: Um, sorry, but I'll be leaving now!
Passerby 2: Oooh! She did it again!
Sen turns and scampers up the wall she'd been backed into, escaping to the rooftops.
Little Kid: Woo! I wanna do that, too!
Vyrn: Yup, there she goes again. I guess I can't blame her when she gets suddenly surrounded like that.
The crew returns to the Grandcypher. Sen timidly pokes her head out to greet the crew.
Sen: Welcome back.
Lyria: It's good to be home! I'm glad you made it back too, Sen.
Sen: Sorry, I went off on my own again—achoo!
Lyria: Uh oh, are you all right, Sen?
Vyrn: You okay? It's gotten colder now that the sun's gone down.
Sen: Mmhmm, I'm not good with cold weather, so...
Sen snuggles herself in tightly between Lyria and (Captain).
Lyria: Hey, what are you doing?
Sen: Hehe, it's so warm right here, meow.
Sen's face is aglow with happiness, wrapped in the warm, gentle embrace of her crew.
To Be A Cat
Sen is on the deck with one of Dante's cats. She tries befriending the feline, which to her astonishment replies with encouraging words. After a short conversation, Sen then falls asleep. Dante explains to Vyrn that he had been speaking the cat's thoughts for Sen.
Sen: Ah, nice and toasty!
Sen stretches out on the deck of the Grandcypher, squinting up into the limpid blue sky.
Sen: A perfect day for... Huh?
Sen: Oh, you must be one of Dante's.
Sen finds a cat curled up where she'd hoped to lay. After a moment's thought, she steps back and sits, knees pulled to her chest.
Dante's Cat: ...
The cat glances up at Sen, who fixes her posture ever so slightly.
Sen: Um, er... Hello! Mind if I sit here?
Dante's Cat: ...
The feline responds with a yawn and buries its head.
Sen: (Lyria always pets you and talks to you, doesn't she? Her and everyone else...)
Sen: (Maybe you and me can be friends, too. Guess I've just gotta talk.)
Sen: So, uh... Sure is warm here.
Dante's Cat: ...
Sen: I'm Sen!
Dante's Cat: ...
Sen: People always tell me I'm like a cat. Honestly, I don't get it.
Sen: I thought, y'know, maybe if I hung out with a cat...
Dante's Cat: ...
Sen: Back in the woods where I'm from, there aren't any cats. Just the big, wild ones.
Sen: It's good to be here on the ship with a cat like you.
Sen smiles at the reactionless cat and blushes slightly.
Sen: Heh... I'm being a chatterbox. Sorry to bother you while you're sunbathing.
Dante's Cat: No, not at all. You're bothering no one.
Sen: Whoa! Was that really you, Kitty?
Dante's Cat: Yes, and what of it?
Sen: Wow! Uh... Mukuta?
Dante's Cat: As a matter of fact, I am Rivera.
Sen: Oops! Sorry, Rivera.
Rivera: Think nothing of it.
Sen: This is just—I mean, a tiny little cat like you, talking!
Sen: That's it! That's got to be why they say I'm like a cat.
Rivera: It's weighing heavily on you, isn't it?
Sen: I'm just like, how am I like a cat? They're always saying I am.
Rivera: It's truly nothing to concern yourself with.
Sen: Really? You think so?
Rivera: I do indeed. Your friends adore your most catlike feature—your free spirit.
Sen: Hmm... My free spirit.
Rivera: More than whiskers or love of the hunt, it's what makes a cat, a cat.
Sen: This free spirit stuff sounds cool. Guess I've got a lot to learn.
Rivera: As I said, you needn't worry. Simply be yourself.
Sen: Y'know, maybe you're right. Thanks a bunch, Rivera!
Rivera: But of course.
Sen: Aaaah, I feel sleepy. It's so nice and warm...
Sen: Rivera, I... I uh...
Lying on her side, Sen curls into a ball. Off to her side, Rivera blinks and yawns.
Vyrn: What're you doing, old man?
Dante: Oh, it's you, Vyrn.
Vyrn: What's with the cat act? You had Sen thinking the furball could talk!
Vyrn: You oughta just chat with her—no pretending you're a cat!
Dante: I didn't pretend to be anything.
Vyrn: Oh yeah? Then what was that?
Dante: The speech was mine, but the words were Lord Rivera's.
Vyrn: Sounds like the same thing to me!
Vyrn: And either way, Sen still fell asleep talking to a cat!
Sen: Hmm... Urmph...
Vyrn: Sure, she looks like she's got it together. But she's pretty quirky!
Dante: Yes, her heart is gentle and free.
Dante: She and Rivera have much in common.
Vyrn: Hehehe! No one would know better than you, old man. I guess she really is like a cat!
As the two converse, a patch of sun advances past the sleeping Sen.
Rivera stands and stretches deeply, then returns to Sen's side.
The cat sidles up beside Sen, and curls back into a ball.
Dante: Yes, Lord Rivera seems to feel a sense of kinship with her.
Sen: Ha... So toasty... So furry... So...
Vyrn: Well, isn't everyone nice and happy!
From that day forward, Sen began sunbathing alongside Dante's cats.
