Alfonse
I...I don't know what to do! I never
imagined something like this could
happen within the castle's walls!

Kaden
Whoa! What's with the face, Alfonse?
You too, [Summoner]!

Selkie
Looks like you're hard at work
thinking! Trying to come up with
a new game to play?

Alfonse
Unfortunately, no. Are you familiar
with the Orbs we use to summon
Heroes? Well, they're missing.

Kaden
So the Orbs just disappeared out
of [Summoner]'s room?

Selkie
Hmm... Hey! Orbs are those round
sparkly thingies, aren't they?

Alfonse
Right. And without them, we can't
gain new recruits, which will
reduce our effectiveness in battle.

Kaden
I see. If something that important just
disappeared, I understand why you'd
be worried!

Selkie
Wait—I know where they are!

Kaden
Well, Selkie? Don't just stand there
wagging your tail! Spit it out already!

Selkie
Well, you see... Not long ago, I was
running around the castle, and I ran
past [Summoner]'s room...
I didn't think anything of it at the
time, but I did see Keaton and
Velouria lurking around...
Alfonse
What? Really?! Lurking? Were they
planning something?

Selkie
Well, I saw them separately, so...
maybe? I was doing laps around the
castle, so I passed a few times...
Alfonse
Could...they have taken the Orbs?

Kaden
If you really want to know, it'd
probably be easiest to just ask them!
Alfonse
Hm... You're right. In any case, I want
more information. It's possible they
saw something!

Keaton
Huh? Why would I ever need to go
in [Summoner]'s room?
Alfonse
Er, well... You were seen near the
room, so I wanted to ask if you saw
anything...unusual.

Keaton
Nope! Nothing unusual! Anyway, I'm
about to go hunting... Do you mind?

Alfonse
Oh... Right! Go ahead. Sorry for
keeping you.
Alfonse
Hm. If Keaton says he didn't go near
[Summoner]'s room...
Velouria might still know something.
We'll see what she has to say!

Velouria
There's nothing interesting over
there, so I heave no reason to go
by [Summoner]'s room...
Alfonse
Er, well... You were seen over by
the room, so I wanted to ask if you
maybe saw anything...unusual?

Velouria
Whoever thinks they saw me was
mistaken. Now, if you don't need
anything else, I'll be going...
Alfonse
Huh. So Velouria claims to not know
anything about the Orb theft either...

Kaden
I see... So neither Keaton or Velouria
admitted to being where Selkie
says she saw them?

Alfonse
Right. And nothing either of them
said struck me as suspicious.

Selkie
I swear I saw them! But I also doubt
either could be the Orb thief we're
looking for.

Kaden
Yeah, they're both a little odd, but...
they're not bad people. Which means
there's still a mystery to solve!
It's up to me—Kaden, the greatest
and most beautiful detective—to
catch this Orb thief of ours!

Selkie
I wanna play too! I'll be your trusty
assistant, Selkie! We'll get those Orbs
back in no time!

Anna
Phew! Another victory down—who
knows how many more to go! Good
work out there, everyone!

Keaton
The enemy never stood a chance!
When we give it all we've got, no one
can get in our way!

Sharena
Kaeton, I saw you diving in behind the
enemy lines. I could hardly keep track
of you! It was incredible!

Keaton
You're beginning to understand the
strength of the wolfskin, are you? Ha!
I was barely even warmed up!

Anna
I believe it! Seems like you've energy
to spare. I'm just glad we all made it
back safely...
Which is what I wanted to talk to you
about, Keaton... You weren't sticking
to the plan out there, were you...
The plan was that you'd wait in the
forest to the north—but didn't I see
you coming in from the south?

Keaton
Er, well, you see... What happened
was that, umm...
I went with my gut instead! It seemed
like that would be for the best! Never
let me down before, anyway...

Sharena
Your gut, huh? I see... Sounds like
another way of saying it was your
beast intuition!

Keaton
Maybe! Listen—I think all that fighting
just caught up with me. I'm gonna go
take a nap somewhere.

Sharena
Hey! Keaton! Aaaand he's gone...
Didn't he say he was barely warmed
up and was ready for more? But then
he suddenly needed to go nap?

Alfonse
Hmm... Interesting.

Selkie
Ah! There you are, Velouria! I've been
looking all over for you. I brought you
something awesome!

Velouria
Busy as always, I see... What's this
so-called awesome something, then?
Must be a...dust bunny? Or...a shed
snake skin? Maybe an old shoe?

Selkie
Whaaat are you talking about?
Ew! It's nothing like ANY of that!
It's...some pretty flowers!
There are tons of them blooming all
around the castle, so I gathered some
up for myself. Aren't they pretty?
You should have one too, Velouria!
Here!

Velouria
Er, uhh... Thank you?

Selkie
If I find more pretty flowers, I'll make
sure you get some. In fact, I'm gonna
go look for some right now!

Velouria
Selkie, wait. I don't— Oh. She's gone
already. That was fast.
Hmm... "Pretty flowers", huh?
Hmph.

Anna
Hm? What's with this crowd?
Seems like they're all excited
about something...

Sharena
Looks like they're all gathering up
around Kaden!
I've heard people say his tail is super
soft... Maybe he was letting people
touch it and a crowd formed?

Anna
I see. That explains the crowd... But
there are some brawny Heroes mixed
in there too...

Sharena
The draw of a tail that fluffy is
irresistible to people of all kinds,
it seems!
Anna
Hmm... Fluffy... Irresistible appeal...
Aha! I just got an idea!

Anna
Pardon me, Kaden, but could I
trouble you for a moment of your
time? It's a small business matter...

Kaden
OK, Commander Anna! Are you sure
you haven't stopped me just to touch
my tail though?

Anna
Well, that's not why—I mean, it IS
related to your tail—but...since you're
offering... May I touch it?

Kaden
Of course! Touch it as much as your
heart desires.
Anna
In that case... Wow! It's so...fluffy!
I feel like I've been transported to a
world of warm, fuzzy clouds!
It's...even fluffier than I expected.
Now I understand why such a crowd
would have gathered!

Kaden
Heh! I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Anna
Now that I've felt it, I HAVE to do
this... Kaden, I wanted to talk to you
about this idea I have.

Kaden
All right? What's your idea, then?

Anna
I want to create pillows that replicate
the fluffiness of your tail!
If I can replicate the cozy softness,
they'll be a huge hit!
My plan is to find a material I can use
to match the texture, but it won't be
easy...

Kaden
Hmm... I don't mind you trying, but...
a kitsune tail is an extraordinary thing,
so it will be quite difficult to replicate.
Anna
No matter! I swear I'll replicate that
fluffiness—or my name isn't Anna!

Selkie
Look who it is—Alfonse and Sharena!
What are you guys up to?

Alfonse
Oh, hi, Selkie. We're just doing some
weapon and armor maintenance so
that all's ready for our next battle.

Sharena
You look like you're in a good mood,
Selkie. What are you up to?

Selkie
Oh, I just came from playing with a
big group of Heroes!
That's one awesome thing about this
castle—there are so many Heroes,
someone's always happy to play!
Plus there are mountain-sized Heroes
and Heroes who dance with grace
like I've never seen...
There are even some Heroes who
can transform like I can! It's great!

Kaden
Selkie! I've been looking for you.
Didn't we have a plan to train
together today?

Selkie
Oh, did we? I'm sorry, Daddy.
There are so many fun things to do in
this castle—I just want to run around
and play all day!

Sharena
I know there are lots of fun things to
do, Selkie, but you must keep your
promises to Kaden, don't you think?

Kaden
Yeah, what she said! The second I
take my eye off of you, you just run
off to who knows where...
We weren't summoned into this
world so we could play, you know.
We're here to help restore peace.

Selkie
OK, OK... Then let's go train! It's
basically playing anyway, so I don't
know what all the fuss is about...

Alfonse
Heh. Everything comes back to
playing with Selkie, huh?

Kaden
Well, she is my daughter... I do wish
she were a bit more serious, though.

The Orb Case - C[edit | edit source]

Background image: 001_BraveInside

Selkie
I've been meaning to ask, Daddy...
When did you become a "great
detective", anyway?

Kaden
Well, it's a term for anyone who uses
keen senses and polished instincts to
solve otherwise—unsolvable mysteries!
If that's not the very definition of a
kitsune with a good nose, I'm not
sure what is!
Alfonse
Hmm... You're not the only detective
on the case. I believe I've also seen
[Summoner] investigating!

Kaden
The look on your face suggests we
have yet to find any leads... But fear
not! I have already cracked the case!

Selkie
Whoa! Amazing! Just what I'd expect
from a great detective! So who stole
the Orbs, then?

Kaden
Well, I've had my suspicions from the
very beginning... You know the owl in
the castle's reception hall?

Alfonse
Wait a second... You aren't talking
about Feh, are you?

Kaden
That owl was hiding Orbs in her
feathers—I saw it with my own eyes!
There's no doubt Feh is the culprit!

Alfonse
I think you might've misunderstood.
You see...Feh brings us Orbs. So that
must be what you saw her doing.

Kaden
Ah, well then... I guess it isn't her!
In that case, I'll return to the scene
of the crime and rethink things.
They say criminals always return to
the scene of the crime, so maybe I'll
luck out and catch them red-handed!

Selkie
Great idea! You're so smart, Daddy!
Now, back to the crime scene!

Kaden
I've heard some detectives revisit the
crime scene up to 100 times over the
course of an investigation...
Sounds like a lot of hanging around,
so let's just do a thorough search of
[Summoner]'s room now.
If you notice anything out of place
or see something that could be a
clue, let me know, Selkie!

Selkie
A clue? You mean...like this? Looks
like a hair from Keaton's taiL! Hmm...
Smells like it too.

Kaden
Whoa! Selkie, that's more than just a
clue—it's undeniable proof!

Alfonse
So Keaton WAS somewhere near
[Summoner]'s room...

Kaden
But Keaton denied it, right? And he
didn't seem to be lying... Could he
have forgotten?
Hmm... Maybe it's that— Aha! I've got
it! It's rudimentary, my dear, Alfonse!
Now, let's go find Keaton...
Alfonse
"M-my dear"?

Keaton
Huh? Back again? And you brought
Selkie and Kaden too... What do you
want this time?

Alfonse
Well, Keaton, after you told me you
hadn't been anywhere near it...
Kaden found a hair from your tail
on the floor just outside the door
to [Summoner]'s room.

Keaton
So?! Are you saying I'm a suspect?
I told you, I have no reason to go near
[Summoner]'s room!

Kaden
Keaton, let me ask you something...
What part of the castle do you think
we are in right now?

Keaton
Oh, even more ridiculous questions!
We're on the second floor of the
west wing, obviously!

Selkie
We're, uh...on the third floor, actually.
And...this is the east wing.

Keaton
Huh?! No way! I could've sworn this
was the second floor...

Kaden
Just as I thought! Keaton is not our
Orb thief. He just...gets lost in the
castle on a regular basis.

Alfonse
Yeah, there's no way anyone so bad
at navigation could sneak into and out
of [Summoner]'s room...

Selkie
Hooray! You're not the culprit after
all, Keaton! Congratulations!

Keaton
Yeah, that's great and all, but...I'm
not sure I follow your logic. Any of
it, really.

Keaton
Hey, Alfonse. Have a minute? Can I
ask you something?

Alfonse
Sure, Keaton. Judging by that look
on your face, it must be something
pretty serious.

Keaton
Yeah, I wanted to talk about that
battle the other day... I want you to
know I didn't just ignore the plan.
I TRIED to follow the strategy, but
I somehow lost track of my position
and ended up behind enemy lines.
Alfonse
What? But I thought you said you
were following your gut...

Keaton
That's what it felt life. I tried to go
to the northern woods as planned...
but I still ended up in the south!

Alfonse
So...you got lost?

Keaton
No, no. I know when I'm lost—not
that it ever happens... My instinct
was just off, that's all!
Alfonse
Oh, OK... Your instinct was off, so
you got lost. Understood.

Keaton
Hmph. Anyway... You don't happen
to know of a way to keep instincts
properly honed, do you?

Alfonse
Oh, so you're looking for a way to
keep yourself from getting lost? Hm...
I'll ask around for some good tips!

Keaton
Really? You'd do that for me?
Er, I mean...it's not a dire situation
or anything like that, of course.
I just figured, if there WERE some
good methods, I might as well test
them out. Y'know—just for fun!
Alfonse
The way your tail is wagging all over
the place says it all, Keaton.
Alfonse
I can't guarantee I'll find anything
helpful, but I'll do my best for you!

Keaton
Amazing! Thank you!

Sharena, can I ask you something?

Sharena
Of course! You can always ask me
whatever's on your mind.

Velouria
What I want to know who decides
what "pretty" is... Who gets to say
what's pretty and what's not?
Sharena
Oh, uh... Hm! Good question!

Sharena
I think it comes down to what you
value. If you think something's pretty,
then it is! That's how I feel, anyway.

Velouria
But what if everyone says something
is pretty but you don't think it is?
Would you be wrong?

Sharena
I don't think so! Everyone is different,
so everyone has their own taste for
what they find pretty.

Velouria
Hm. Thank you for your help. I think
I know what to do now.
Sorry to bother you with such a
weird question... Bye.
Sharena
Er, OK, bye!
Velouria seemed oddly worried about
something... I hope she's all right.

I've gathered you here to tell you...
the alpha version of Codename Fluffy
Pillow is ready for testing!

Selkie
Wow! The pillow looks just like a
fluffy tail! I'm already impressed.

Velouria
So...is that it?

Anna
Oh, not at all! I want you guys to try
touching the pillow, and then tell me
what you think about it.

Selkie
No problem! Other than Daddy, I'm
the foremost kitsune-tail expert
around, so asking me was smart!

Velouria
If you really want to hear what I think,
I'll give it a try...

Anna
Yeah! Enough talking about it—get in
there and touch that tail! Have I met
Kaden's tail level of fluff!

Kaden
Hmm... It IS soft like Daddy's tail...
But Daddy's tail isn't just soft, it feels
like it hugs you when you touch it!

Anna
Hmm... I could translate into a
pillow by making it more spongy on
top of being soft, I think...
What about you, Velouria? Do you
have any feedback on the pillow?

Velouria
Hm. It doesn't smell like Kaden.

Anna
Well, I didn't use Kaden's actual fur,
so that explains that, but...
I could try to find a smell similar to
Kaden's and bathe the pillow in it!
Thank you both! I think I have some
good direction for how to improve
Codename Fluffy Pillow from here...

Velouria
Happy to help...

Selkie
Same! I can't wait to see the final
product... Let me know as soon as
it's ready, please!

Hey, Alfonse, I want to ask you

Alfonse
What is it, Selkie?

Selkie
I was wondering... Are there any
other kitsune in this world?
There are so many Heroes here, it
just seems like there should be some
other kitsune!

Alfonse
I can't say I've ever met any kitsune
aside from you and Kaden. Not even
among our enemies...

Selkie
I see... It just seemed like a possibility,
so I had to ask.

Alfonse
To be honest, though, I don't know
everything there is to know about the
world, so it could be possible!

Selkie
Well, if it is, I hope I get to meet some
of them one day!

Alfonse
And don't forget that there might be
kitsune from other worlds, and they
might be summoned here one day!

Selkie
Oh yeah! I forgot about that! Thanks,
Alfonse! I've got some new things to
be excited about!

Background image: 001_BraveInside

Keaton
So you're still trying to figure out who
stole the Orbs, hm?
Well, I think we've established that
I didn't do it. And Velouria would
never do anything like that.

Selkie
I don't think Velouria would steal
Orbs either, but...I'm sure the red
hood and ears I saw were hers!

Kaden
Oh! Speak of the devil. Isn't that
Velouria over there?

Keaton
Oh, yeah, there she is! Hey, Velou—
Alfonse
Wait! Something about her seems a
bit off...

Velouria
Nobody mind me. I'm only mumbling
to myself as I walk down the hall.
Nothing out of the ordinary...

Kaden
I trust you know your own daughter,
Keaton, but she's definitely acting
like she's up to something...
Alfonse
And on top of that, it looks like
she's trying to hide something in
her pockets.

Keaton
I don't believe it! I mean...how?
How could she have possibly grown
into such a ne'er-do-well after a
childhood alone in the Deeprealms?

Selkie
Well, hang on! We don't know for
sure that she's the Orb thief... Let's
go check her room for clues!

Keaton
R-right... Although, as her father,
I suggest we ask before snooping
through her things...

Velouria
Huh. That's why you think I'm the
one who stole the Orbs?

Keaton
Well, it's not that you're a suspect...
I mean, I believe you! I know you're
not a bad kid!

Alfonse
I don't want to be suspicious of my
allies either, but...I need to be
absolutely sure.
We saw you sneaking around earlier...
If you let us look around your room,
we can put our fears to rest.

Velouria
Hmm... No.

Kaden
What? What do you mean, no?! You
understand what this looks like, don't
you, Velouria?

Velouria
Like I have things in my room I don't
want the whole world to see? Yeah,
no, I get it.

Selkie
Don't worry, Velouria! I know all
about what's in your room, and I'm
sure no one will judge you for it!

Velouria
Ugh... Fine.
But only if everyone promises not
to touch any of my stuff.

Kaden
All right, in we go!
Urp! This might have been a
mistake...
Alfonse
I see some rusty old daggers, a few
dead birds, a pile of bones from some
manner of creature I've never seen...
Velouria, what IS all this?

Keaton
I'll tell you what it is...
It's AMAZING! Did you collect all
this by yourself? There's a whole
mountain of treasures in here!
Alfonse
What?! All THIS is...treasure?

Selkie
Yup! To Velouria and Keaton, that is.
They tend to collect things we might
think are a little weird...

Keaton
Hey, Kaden! Check out this hair ball!
I don't know what it is about it, but
it's kinda...perfect, right?

Kaden
It certainly is something...

Keaton
I was worried for a second, but this
is great! Just what I'd expect from a
daughter of mine!

Alfonse
I see... So it was this junk—sorry,
these treasures—that Velouria was
collecting, then...

Velouria
Yeah, I don't know much about
Orbs, but from what I DO know,
I'm not interested...
But I was worried I might become
a suspect if anyone knew I had all
this treasure hidden away.
That's why I didn't want to show
everyone inside my room...

Alfonse
Y-yeah, that's understandable. I don't
think you need to worry about being
a suspect anymore...

Selkie
Well, I'm glad we got all that cleared
up! But...we still don't know who took
the Orbs!

Alfonse
OK, Keaton. The best tip I came up
with for not getting lost is to closely
study a map of the area before battle.
I have a map of Askr here... Would
you like to borrow it?

Keaton
A map, huh? Yeah, I guess that could
work, but...
I'm not sure I'll have time to look
down at a map once I'm face to face
with our foes on the battlefield...

Alfonse
Fair enough... What about using the
sun and stars to figure out which
direction you're headed?
You can use the sun during the day,
and at night, you can use the stars.
Wolfskin like you have incredible
eyesight, right? That kind of thing
would probably be easy for you!

Keaton
Yeah, that could work, but...what if
it's rainy or cloudy? I won't be able
to see the sun or stars, will I?

Alfonse
Hm. I suppose you're right. You could
try leaving yourself a trail, so you can
follow it back to where you started...
I've heard of someone escaping a
betwitched forest using that trick...
All thanks to a bread-crumb trail!

Keaton
What>! They left a whole trail of food
behind them? What if someone
followed them and ate their trail?
Alfonse
W-well, you don't HAVE to to use bread
crumbs to mark your trail...

Keaton
Still, I'm not sure any of these
methods are going to work for me.
Sorry, Alfonse, I know you went to
a lot of trouble coming up with all
those ideas for me...

Alfonse
I'm sorry none of them have been
helpful so far! I'll try to come up with
other ideas that might work for you.

Last time we spoke, you seemed

Oh, Sharena... You're so sweet! I can

Here. Take a look at this, and tell me

Wow! That's one pretty flower!
Is there something special about it
I should know?

Velouria
Not exactly. Selkie gave it to me.
She's been giving me one every day
lately, actually.

Sharena
Well, it's a great flower. The color is
so vivid, just looking at it makes me
feel a little more at ease.

Velouria
You and Selkie both... But for me,
not so much. I can't seem to see it
as pretty, no matter how I try.
Sharena
Really?

Velouria
I think things like hair balls and bat
wings are pretty... Even some types
of poisonous weeds are nice!
But when it comes to what everyone
else thinks is pretty... I don't see
things like other people do!
I thought maybe there was something
wrong with me since I can't agree
with everyone on what's pretty...
Sharena
Oh, there's nothing wrong with you,
Velouria! You can value you things in
whatever way feels right to you!

Velouria
But that's no good either. Selkie gave
me this thing she thinks is pretty, but
to me, it's just a boring old flower.
I feel bad that I can't appreciate the
gift she clearly cares so much about.
Sharena
Oh. I see...

Kaden: Kitsune Braggart - A[edit | edit source]

Background image: 002_PlainForestInside

Anna
OK, everyone, this is the beta test of
Codename Fluffy Pillow. And joining
us today, we have Kaden himself!

Kaden
Having felt the tail, it IS super soft...
It's almost exactly the same as when
I feel my own tail.
Even the way it smells is nice and
relaxing... What is that scent? Toasted
chestnuts maybe?

Anna
Thank you. I put a lot of effort into it.
But the quality it's reached is all due
to the feedback I got in the alpha test!

Kaden
Well, in all seriousness, the level of
softness is incredible. Here, Selkie,
you have to try it.

Selkie
Whoa! It's SO soft! I thought it was
soft before, but this is really on a
whole different level by comparison!

Kaden
Then we agree! It's amazing,
Commander Anna. You could
definitely sell this.

Anna
Really?! All right! I have a feeling this
will be one of the best-selling items
I've put out in a while...

Selkie
Yeah, even if it's a little off from
Daddy's tail, it'll still sell well, I bet!
Anna
What? It's a little off? Is that what
you said?

Selkie
Yeah... It's soft and fluffy, and the
scent is good-but it's still not exactly
like Daddy's tail.
Anna
Well, the whole selling point for the
pillow is that it's a perfect re-creation
of Kaden's tail.
If you have doubt that it meets that
standard, then I can't sell it.

Kaden
Yeah, it might be best to take Selkie's
opinion over mine. She's probably
the expert on my tail specifically...
Just make sure to tell Commander
Anna when you figure out what's off
about it, OK, Selkie?

Selkie
No problem! Just let me think about
it for a bit, and I'll tell you what I
come up with...

Kaden
Selkie! Where are you? Can you hear
me, Selkie? ...SELLLKIEEEE!!

Alfonse
Hey! Is everything all right, Kaden?

Kaden
Ah, Alfonse! I'm glad you're here.
You haven't seen Selkie, have you?
I haven't seen her all morning...
Alfonse
Hmm... Now that you mention it,
I haven't seen her today, either...

Kaden
Ugh. Where could she have gone?
I'm always telling her, over and over,
not to just wander off on her own.
Back in our world, she tried to go to
the kitsune hamlet on her own once.
And she got lost, of course...
And I've told her countless times to
stay within shouting distance, but
here I am shouting...
Alfonse
I...might have played a part in her
going missing, actually...
See, we were talking recently about
how it's possible there might be more
kitsune in this world besides you...

Kaden
I see. So you think your conversation
tickled her curiosity enough that she
left to go find more kitsune?
Alfonse
Ugh, I'm sorry. I shouldn't have been
so careless with my words...

Kaden
No, no. It's not your fault, Alfonse.
Selkie's always wanted to meet other
kitsune. See, she grew up in this
place called the Deeprealms, isolated.
Meeting so many Hereos here must
have made her want to meet other
kitsune even more.
Alfonse
I'll help you look for her. And I'll ask
[Summoner] to help too...

Selkie
Hi, Daddy! Oh, and Alfonse too!

Kaden
Selkie! Where have you been? I've
been looking everywhere for you!

Selkie
I'm sorry for worrying you! I just went
to pick some flowers...

Alfonse
I'm glad you're all right! We were
worried you'd gone looking for other
kitsune out there.

Kaden
Right. Next time you leave the castle,
Selkie, please tell someone where
you're going! ...Promise me?

Selkie
OK, Daddy... I promise. And I'll
promise you too, Alfonse! Sorry
again for worrying you both...
To make up for it, let me give you
some of these flowers I picked!
Are they the prettiest, or what?

The Orb Case - A[edit | edit source]

Nameplate Text
Background image: 001_BraveInside

Keaton
We're sure we didn't use the Orbs
and then forget? They disappear
when they're used, don't they?

Alfonse
We didn't have any occasion to spend
Orbs during the window of time they
went missing.
And just to be sure, I double-checked
with [Summoner] on that.

Velouria
You know, I saw the owl in—

Selkie
Oh, we already tried that angle.
Apparently it wasn't the owl.

Velouria
Oh. Well, never mind, then.

Kaden
Even I, Kaden, the great detective,
am stumped!
But at least we were able to prove
Keaton and Velouria are innocent...

Keaton
Of course we're innocent! We noble
wolfskin hate stealing!

Velouria
But the Orbs are still missing, which
means there's still a thief somewhere
in the castle...

Selkie
Oh hey! Commander Anna is headed
this way! Hello, Commander!

Anna
Ah, perfect. I'm glad I ran into you
all. Would you mind helping me carry
this? It's so heavy...

Alfonse
What...is that, Commander Anna?

Anna
I'm glad you asked! This is a new
kind of semi-portable strongbox I've
been developing for market.
It protects from fire, water, AND
lightning. I call it...the SafeCase!
It keeps things safe, just in case!

Velouria
You seem awfully confident... How
can you guarantee all that?

Anna
I've run tons of tests! I even put some
Orbs inside for some final tests, and
they came out completely unharmed!
Alfonse
Wait...

Kaden
You...

Keaton
You just took some Orbs?

Selkie
And put them in your safe thing?

Velouria
And expected no one to notice?
Anna
Umm... Yeah, that's right. Why is
everyone looking at me like I'm a
criminal? Is there a problem?

Kaden
Care to hear my deductions, my
dear Alfonse?
Alfonse
No, that's all right, Kaden. I think I've
figured out who the Orb thief was on
my own at this point.

Keaton
Well, at least the case of the missing
Orbs can now be closed.

Selkie
Yeah, but the ending wasn't as
satisfying as I was hoping! I want
another case to solve now!

Velouria
I'm shocked we didn't solve this
case earlier, to be honest.
Anna
What case? You mean the SafeCase?
A-and what do you mean it's solved?
...Am I missing something here?

Alfonse
Hey Keaton! I have a solution for you
thanks to [Summoner]!

Keaton
Really? You two came up with a good
way for me to avoid getting lost? Let
me hear it, then!

Alfonse
OK. From now on, whenever you go
into battle, just make sure one of us
is there at your side!
That ought to solve your problem!
Even if you TRY to take a wrong turn
we'll be there to set you straight.

Keaton
That's actually a really good plan...
I'm impressed! There's no way I'll get
lost now!

Alfonse
And if we start by assuming we'll be
acting together, we should be able to
strategize accordingly, no problem!

Keaton
Well, I guess that's how it'll be, then...
I suppose I'll just have to get used to
having the two of you around.
Personally, I'm not sure why it's a
problem for me to just get wild and
dig in behind enemy lines, but OK...
Alfonse
You can try to sound glum all you
want, Keaton, but the wagging of
your tail is telling a different story.

Keaton
Just get ready for the next battle...
Brace yourself for seeing everything
a wolfskin is capable of!

Alfonse
I can hardly wait!

Keaton
With you keeping me on track, I'll be
even better than before! Just watch—
I'll be unstoppable! Ah-roooooo!

Velouria: Wolf Cub - S[edit | edit source]

Velouria
Hey, Velouria! So about our talk the
other day...

Sharena
What about it?

Velouria
Well, I thought about it some more,
and I don't think you need to force
yourself to find flowers pretty.
After all, you DO appreciate that
Selkie is giving you flowers, right?
It's that attitude that's important!

Sharena
Oh... All right.

Velouria
Listen—Selkie gave you something
she found pretty, right?
Flowers may not be your thing, but
the feelings behind why she gave you
the flowers are still reaching you.
And that's what's important, if you
ask me! Even if you value different
things, you still care for each other!
Those flowers are a sign of how
much Selkie cares about you!

Sharena
Well, then...I should react to the
thought behind a gift.
Selkie's feelings are more important
than whether I find flowers pretty.
I should have been more thankful...

Velouria
There are tons of Heroes here. Each
one has their own ideas, but they all
respect what each other values.

Sharena
Sure, we're all fighting for peace, but
each of us has our own ideas about
what peace looks like.
We're all just trying to secure some
peace in the best way we know how...
As long as you want to fight for
a peaceful future, you'll have no
trouble fitting in around here!
So please, Velouria, follow your
heart's down desire. And don't worry
about it matching anyone else's.

Velouria
Thank you, Sharena. It's...relieving to
hear that.
Sharena
Everyone is different, and that's just
fine! That's what the Order of Heroes
is all about!

Velouria
In that case, since you've been so
helpful, I want give you my most
cherished treasure in the world...
It's my collection of assorted gecko
eyes! Aren't they pretty? Try one!
The way they pop is to die for!
Sharena
I...appreciate the gesture, Velouria...
But I can't let you give me something
so—urp...clearly important to you!

Selkie
I think I figured out what's off about
Codename Fluffy Pillow, Anna!

Anna
Really? Well, what is it?!

Selkie
Well... One of the main reasons that
Daddy's tail is so nice is because it's
attached to him!

Kaden
Hm?

Selkie
I mean, it's not just the smell and the
feel that make Daddy's tail nice...
Is that being around him makes you
feel safe and happy!
Anna
So then...everyone loves Kaden's tail
because it's attached to Kaden. That
isn't something I can copy...
Ugh... And here I thought we were on
the verge of having a real hit product
on our hands!

Kaden
But the beta version of the pillow still
felt great, so why not try selling that?
Anna
No! Like I said, the whole selling point
of the product was that it'd be a
perfect copy of Kaden's tail!
If I can't make that happen, I refuse
to sell the product.

Kaden
Aw, but you put so much hard work
into it...
Whatever the case, though, you're
welcome to pet my tail any time you
like—just let me know.

Selkie
Ooh! Can we pet it right now?

Selkie
This is why I never slack off when
it comes to grooming... My tail must
always be ready for its fans!

Oh, hey, Selkie.

Selkie
Sorry for worrying you before...
I would like to meet any kitsune
who might be in this world, but...
I can already have fun every day as
it is so long as I have all the Heroes
in the castle to play with!

Alfonse
I'm glad to know you're happy here.
And I'm glad that we've become
friends.

Selkie
Actually, I went out to pick flowers
because Daddy gave me some once,
and they made me super happy!
I want to make everyone happy like
that so we can grow closers, so I went
to get some flowers to give people!

Alfonse
I see... That makes sense, I guess.

Selkie
Anyway, I want to grow closer with
you too, so...here you go! You get
some flowers today too!

Alfonse
Oh! They're very pretty. Thank you!
Just looking at them is soothing...
I feel like I should do you a favor
now... Is there anything I can do?

Selkie
Yeah! Could you...scratch behind my
ear? There's this spot that I just can't
get at the right angle...
But really, letting me stay here and
help out—and giving me a place to
play with all the Heroes—is enough!

Alfonse
I'm happy you're here too, Selkie...
And I'm excited we get to work and
play together!

Selkie
When it comes to play, just leave it to
me! I've got to repay you for helping
make my time here so fun, after all!
