Unicorn and the Town Musicians is a story from Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo Tales. The story is about when Unicorn decides to form a band with Cait Sith (depicted as he was in Final Fantasy VII) playing his trumpet and Chip the Hamster playing the cymbals.

The story is based on Town Musicians of Bremen, as well as some references to The Pied Piper of Hamelin, a legend made famous by The Brothers Grimm. As well as the Pied Piper references, there are also references to the story of the Woodsman and the Golden Axe.

Volume 1: Mimic that MelodyEdit

StoryEdit

PrologueEdit

Once upon a time, there was a mystic and graceful creature named Unicorn. One afternoon, he was relaxing in the forest as usual, when...

"How boring!"

He hadn't talked to anybody all day, and could barely keep his eyes open.

In an effort to relieve the monotony, he started stomping his hooves on some rocks.

Clop! Clop! Clop!

His stomping soon took on a very catchy rhythm...

"I know what I'll do! I'll head into town and play some music!"

He headed off towards town at an easy gallop.

Along the way, he met up with Cait Sith, who looked to be quite the bored fellow as well.

"There's nae a thing to do! Sitting in the sun doesnae help a bit, either!"

"Then let's start a band! That trumpet of yours will go perfect with my clip-clopping!"

"Sure enaff, I'd be glad ta join youse! I'm always up for a tune...or three."

The pair started to improvise a cheerful air!

Clop! Clop Clop! Toot! Toot! Toot!

After playing for a bit, they noticed that Chip the hamster was watching quietly from the bushes, with cymbals in hand!

"Won't you join as well?" asked Unicorn.

Chip nodded and then hopped onto Unicorn's head. Cait Sith took the cue and took a seat on the steed's back.

Clop! Clop! Clop! Toot! Toot! Toot! Clang! Clang! Clang!

And so the musical trio made their way into town, playing a very catchy tune...

Epilogue 1: Festive MoodEdit

In recent days, the town had been suffering from a surge in crime, and the faces of the townsfolk were pallid and dreary.

However, upon hearing the whimsical tunes of the musical trio, the adults stood up form their desks and left work. The children followed suit, laying down their pens and schoolbooks.

Clop! Clop! Clop! Toot! Toot! Toot! Clang! Clang! Clang! La-la-la-la-la!

It was almost as if a festival had begin in the town!

---

Clop! Clop! Clop! Toot! Toot! Toot! Clang! Clang! Clang! La-la-la-la-la!

The people, animals, and even trees of the village danced along with the music of the town musicians!

There wasn't anyone left in the town with a dreary face.

Epilogue 2: FireworksEdit

''Clop! Clop! Clop! Toot! Toot! Toot! Clang! Clang! Clang!

The entire town started dancing in synchronization with the music of the chipper trio.

Among the participants was a group of men ever so slightly out of place.

"You're not from around here, are you?" mumbled the baker to one of the suspicious men.

"J-just passing through," he replied, fidgeting nervously.

Suddenly, a golden watch dropped out of his coat pocket!

"Hey, that's my watch!" accused the baker. "It was stolen yesterday!"

It was true--unable to resist joining in the dancing, even the thieves had crept out of their secret hideout!

"Seize them at once!" ordered the constable, who had previously been doing a merry jig.

---

After the thieves had been locked up, the festive mood grew even more fervent!

As the day wound down, a fireworks display was arranged to honor Unicorn and his band.

Epilogue 3: Giant TurnipEdit

''Clop! Clop! Clop! Toot! Toot! Toot! Clang! Clang! Clang!

Humans weren't the only ones affected by the music of Unicorn and his friends.

In the field, a turnip moved with the music and began to grow bigger and bigger!

"Behold!" yelled one of the farmers. "That turnip is titanic! It will make a fine supper for us all!

"Heeeave ho!"

The farmers pulled on the turnip together, but the voluminous vegetable wouldn't budge an inch!

Clop! Clop! Clop! Toot! Toot! Toot! Clang! Clang! Clang!

Unicorn and his band rallied up a crowd of townsfolk to assist the farmers. Even the stray dogs and alley cats came to help!

Clop! Clop! Clop! Toot! Toot! Toot! Clang! Clang! Clang! "Heeeave ho!"

Keeping in time with the music, they kept on pulling at the turnip together.

---

At last, they succeeded! The turnip was finally unearthed!

Afterwards, everyone enjoyed three hearty servings of turnip soup.

Volume 2: Symphonic SurvivorEdit

StoryEdit

PrologueEdit

Unicorn and his town musicians happily settled down in their new home.

One day, though, the town was suddenly overcome by an infestation of malboros!

The malboros spewed their terrible breath at the townsfolk and caused them to become ill.

The mayor went to Unicorn and asked for assistance.

"Please, I'll pay whatever you want! Just find a way to get rid of those malboros and their horrible halitosis!"

Unicorn and his friends, seeing how much the mayor needed their help, nodded and then...

Clop! Clop! Clop!

Toot! Toot! Toot!

Clang! Clang! Clang!

The began performing a spirited melody...

Epilogue 1: Broken PromiseEdit

Clop! Clop! Clop!

Toot! Toot! Toot!

Clang! Clang! Clang!

Mal-mal-mal-boro!

Unicorn and his town musicians entranced the foul-smelling beasts with their lively tune, and led the creatures out of the town to the river.

Alight the malboro menace was over, the mayor broke his promise and refused to pay Unicorn and his friends a single gil for their honest hard work!

Soon after, all the children in the village began to dance uncontrollably.

---

They danced and dance, led on by Unicorn and the town musician, until they were taken far, far away.

The grieving adults left behind in the town were remorseful for breaching their promise to Unicorn and his friends but their dishonesty had already condemned them.

Epilogue 2: Foul FungiEdit

Clop! Clop! Clop!

Toot! Toot! Toot!

Clang! Clang! Clang!

Mal-mal-mal-boro!

The music of Unicorn and his friends led to the malboros out to the river and saved the town.

However, the mayor refused to pay the promised reward, and so the town musicians led away all the children with an enchanting tune.

Soon after, the malboros returned to the town in even greater hordes!

Their breath spawned foul mushrooms that grew all over the town.

This fungi gave rise to a terrible pestilence.

If the children, young and lacking resistance to the disease, had been in town.. it would have been a catastrophe!

---

The town musicians had foreseen the whole terrible situation and acted with outstanding prudence!

Once the disease was brought under control, they led the children back to town.

The mayor was overcome with gratitude, and regretted deceiving the musicians in the first place.

From that day on, he never broke his word again.

Epilogue 3: Three TrumpetsEdit

Clop! Clop! Clop!

Toot! Toot! Toot!

Clang! Clang! Clang!

Mal-mal-mal-boro!

The music of Unicorn and his friends led the malboros out to the river and saved the town.

After the exhausting trip, Cait Sith went to quench his thirst at the sacred spring in the town square.

Just as he was bending over to take a sip, he slipped, dropping his trumpet into the water!

"Crivens! Ma lucky trumpet!"

Hearing the felines forlorn cries, the goddess of the spring rose from the crystalline waters with a marvelous trumpet in each hand.

"Was the trumpet that you dropped into my spring this golden one? Or was it this silver one?"

"Neither one, lassie!"

"Ma trumpet is no as shiny as they are!"

The goddess gave Cait Sith a gentle pat on the head.

"For being honest, I shall bequeath unto you both of these trumpets as well as the one you dropped into my spring."

---

She handed over the three trumpets to Cait Sith.

It didn't take long for the group to find members to play the new instruments, increasing their already marvelous musical repertoire!
