Cal Mira Island ArcEdit

Naofumi goes to his shop bringing with him materials collected from Cal Mira Island including the Penguin Plush, the Karma Dog Claws, and the Karma Rabbit Sword as well as many other smaller items with the hopes of getting them repaired and upgraded. While he's there he thanks Elhart for helping prove him innocent of Malty's rape charge. c114


Spirit Turtle ArcEdit

He is able to upgrade them into the Firo Plush, the Usauni Sword and the Inulut Claw respectively. He also manages to make the Speckle Spear using the remaining Karma Penguin ingredients. c115


Slave Supremacy ArcEdit

Revisited by Naofumi, Elhart explains that the shields he requested last time are not ready. Although he has made a couple of samples, they are not refined enough to be considered a shield. The first is far too heavy to be useful and the second lacks sturdiness. The complications are due to the fact that almost all of the Spirit Turtle materials have a bad affinity with the Air Wake feature, feature that's supposed to make heavy armor lighter. Despite those problems he did finish making the Speckle Rapier and gives it to Naofumi. c148
