A long time ago, on the farthest edges of living memory, a lone meteorite came hurtling down from the sky, finally coming to rest in a lightless corner of Vana'diel. From the molten core of this extraterrestrial rock emerged the demon king Ullegore, whose sole desire was the complete and utter eradication of joy and jubilance from the world. To perpetrate his devilry, Ullegore traversed the land in search of festivals, sowing the seeds of ennui wherever his foul shadow fell. One after the next, smiles were reduced to frowns, and hearty laughter silenced behind pursed lips.
Just when it seemed that all hope was lost, there arose an unlikely young heroine who would pluck Vana'diel back from the precipice of eternal tedium: Fantastic Fraulein Mumor! Seemingly an ordinary stage starlet, Mumor is in truth a magically imbued fighter possessed of the ability to convert the spirited cheering of her fans into a formidable force with which to vanquish evil. Aided by her girl-next-door good looks and winsome ways, Mumor danced and sang her way into the hearts of folk the Middle Lands over, restoring smiles to the faces of children and grownups alike.
The previous edition of the Sunbreeze Festival saw Mumor clash with one of Ullegore's Four Archfiends, the Mithra Uka. With her passionate steps and boundless charm, Mumor awakened Uka to the joy of dance, convincing her erstwhile adversary to forsake her evil master. That moment marked the birth of the dance duo “Mighty Maidens Mumor and Uka,” its inception ushering in a convivial age free from the taint of Ullegore and his dastardly ambition...or so it was thought.
Another Sunbreeze Festival has come, and with it an ill wind blows. No sooner had Mumor and Uka arrived to perform at their first ever Sunbreeze stage together than a newly formed dance trio known as “Cream Puff” barged in to steal the limelight and the hearts of fans.
Have our two heroines finally met their match? Will they succeed in putting these sultry upstarts in their place, or be dealt a premature relegation to the discount shelf? The fate of the Mighty Maidens hangs in the balance, and only your feverish cheering can tip the scales in their favor!
