Story[edit | edit source]
Originally, Yew keep the diary to himself which he uses to write his exploits and encountering monsters. But after being joined by Edea Lee, Magnolia Arch, and Tiz Arrior, Yew is forced to let them add their own opinions to his entries. Each chooses a different colored pen to write in: Yew sticks with black, Magnolia chooses blue, Edea orange, and Tiz green. Later on, however, entries from a fifth person appear in the diary, written with a purple pen, who's later revealed to be Altair.
