    Cage's LEV
    
    	Category: LEV
    	
    	The LEV used by Cage in his
    	escape from Bonaparte III.
    	Higher-grade than the
    	average LEV, it is equipped
    	with Pharsti, the A.I. who is
    	a source of support to the
    	inexperienced Cage.
    
    Testament
    
    	Category: OF
    	
    	The true identity of Cage's
    	LEV. Secretly tested and
    	built by Zephyrs, Bolozof
    	should have been its frame
    	runner. Limitless capacity.
    	Named "Testament" by
    	Pharsti, which may refer to
    	the covenant between Pharsti
    	and Cage... But there seems
    	to be a deeoper underlying
    	meaning to its nomenclature.
    	Zephyrs and his crew call it
    	the "New Model Animus."
    
    
    Vjaya
    
    	Category: OF
    	
    	OF used by BIS, whose
    	composition allows for
    	ninja-like agility and speed.
    	Comparatively lower in
    	offensive ability, but can
    	perform two types of burst 
    	attacks. Rare model.
    
    Orcrist
    
    	Category: OF
    	
    	First-ever OF used by BIS,
    	designed as mid- to
    	long-range backup support.
    	Lacking in durability.
    
    Durandal II
    
    	Category: OF
    	
    	OF used by BIS, designed 
    	specifically for close-range
    	combat. Durable, and 
    	reserved for the best frame
    	runners in the galaxy.
    	Durandal I (LEV) was
    	destroyed by Warren.
    
    Justeen
    
    	Category: LEV
    	
    	Lev used by BIS. Much more
    	agile than the average LEV,
    	and excels in combat
    	involving the "leg" area.
    	"Justeen," along with
    	"Dreizehn," was the nickname 
    	given these machines by 
    	Yukito; the official name of
    	this LEV is "Francesca."
    
    Dreizehn
    
    	Category: LEV
    	
    	LEV used by BIS. Better at
    	long-range sniper-style
    	shooting than the average
    	LEV. "Dreizehn" is a 
    	nickname, meaning "thirteen"
    	in German. Official name:
    	"Torador."
    
    Caliburnus
    
    	Category: LEV
    	
    	LEV used by BIS. Contains
    	stronger defense structures
    	than the average LEV, but a
    	bit sluggish. Ability to attack
    	and/or serve as a backup
    	support unit. Name means
    	"steel" in Latin.
    
    Edge
    
    	Category: AFV
    	
    	Tanker used by BIS, designed
    	as a means of transporting
    	humans. Since defense 
    	mechanisms and other
    	devices are kept to a bare
    	minimum, it is unfit for
    	battle. Replenishment system
    	on board.
    
    Blade
    
    	Category: AFV
    	
    	Tanker used by BIS, designed
    	as a means of transporting
    	various goods. Maintenance
    	resources on board.
    	Moderate defensive
    	capacities, but inadequate 
    	for combat.
    
    Calibur
    Category: AFV
    
    Tanker used by BIS with 
    replenishment system, the
    base of which is the Blade
    model. Robin's customization
    of replenishment utilities and
    weapons has made its
    operation complicated, but
    these changes are necessary
    in the complexities of warfare.
    
    Security Force LEV A
    
    	Category: LEV
    	
    	Slightly older-model LEV for
    	Security Force use. Features

    	Slightly older-model LEV for
    	Security Force use. Features

    	combat.
    
    Regular Force LEV A
    
    	Category: LEV
    	
    	New-model LEV for UNSF use.

    	with machine gun.
    
    Reinforced LEV B
    
    	Category: LEV
    	
    	New-model LEV with 
    	modifications further
    	fortifying its defensive and
    	offensive features. Equipped
    	with missiles.

    	Category: LEV
    	
    	New-model LEV with 
    	modifications further

    	offensive features. Equipped
    	with beam bullets.
    
    Ned LEV
    
    	Category: LEV
    	
    	New-model LEV customized by
    	Ned. Features include the
    	terrifying Death Masquerade, 
    	a maneuver in which a 
    	laserblade continually slices
    	everything with which it
    	makes contact.
    
    Bizac S
    
    	Category: LEV
    	
    	Modified LEV used by Special
    	Task Force Acemos. Bolozof's 
    	pride and joy, it uses 
    	technology developed by
    	Zephyrs. Thick outer shell
    	equiped with blades.
    
    Bizac
    
    	Category: LEV
    	
    	Modified LEV used by Special
    	Task Force Acemos. Basically
    	identical to the Bizac S, but
    	with a thinner outer shell
    	and reinforced thruster unit.
    	
    HarutMarut
    	
    	Category: Large
    	LEV
    	
    	Large LEV utilizing metatron
    	advocated by Zephyrs; used
    	mostly in riot control.
    	Roughly 2-3 times the size
    	of the average LEV,
    	assistance intelligence
    	installed enables complex
    	maneuvers to be handled
    	with ease, even by just one
    	pilot. Looks like an octopus,
    	jellyfish, or other similar
    	deep-sea creature. (Interior
    	is a direct plagiarism of
    	Tempest.)
    
    HarutMarut
    Category: Large
    LEV
    
    The HarutMarut after
    reconstruction following
    damage; also known as
    "Number 2." Unlike previous
    models, the inner mechanisms
    are based on Zephyrs'
    research of the Tempest.
    
    Unmanned Fighter A
    
    	Category: Fighter
    	
    	Unmanned fighter machine
    	widely used by UNSF.
    	Effectiveness moderate.

    Black Frame
    
    	Category: ???
    	
    	The mystery machine that 
    	destroyed Bonaparte, the
    	spine of which is a bony
    	structure reminiscent of a
    	bird's wing. Completely black,
    	conjures up images of the 
    	devil.
    
    Iblis
    
    	Category: OF
    	
    	The true identity of the 
    	Black Frame. An older model 
    	of the Animus series, it os 
    	equipped with Version a of
    	the I.D.O. Mindflow System,
    	making it an imposing enemy
    	even for Testament; it is
    	possible, however, for the
    	pulse to flow backwards and
    	kill the frame runner inside.
    	
    Raptor
    	Category: OF
    	
    	Unmanned OF devised by

    	weapon.
    
    Cyclops
    	Category: OF
    	
    	Unmanned OF devised by

    	and undetected.
    
    Ravana
    	Category: OF

    	addition of the Mindflow
    	System as well as extensive
    	interior renovation to
    	counteract the Marlblanke
    	Effect. Equipped with gigantic 
    	bullet barrels on either
    	hand, it excels in both long-
    	and close-range combat. The
    	two weapons compatible with
    	this model are called "crime"
    	and punishment."

    Cage Midwell
    Male 
    17 years old
    Blood type O
    
    A kindhearted, gentle youth.
    Began working on bord the
    Bonapart III along with
    Ares, whom he met a year
    earlier. Born 17 years ago
    to an unknown mother on the
    cargo deck of the Midwell,
    which was smuggling illegal 
    immigrants, Cage was raised
    on the ship by the Captain,
    who took the boy under his 
    wing. Though he was treated 
    well by fellow Midwell staff,
    Cage always harbored a
    feeling of loneliness and
    isolation in hiss heart which 
    translated into low
    self-esteem and overly
    passive behavior. When the
    Captain died and Midwell was
    deemed unfit for flight, Cage
    boarded Bonapart III, where
    he met Ares. His new
    friendship with this boy, who
    was the same age as him
    and yet seemed so mature,
    had a profound effect on
    Cage, and helped him recover 
    from his psychological
    wounds. However, the
    knowledge that he owes his 
    rebirth to Ares has proven
    problematic in itself, as Cage
    depends on Ares entirely,
    and suspects that he will
    never be able to exist
    independently of him.
    
    Ares Enduwa
    Male
    17 years old
    Blood type AB
    
    A co-worker of Cage aboard
    the Bonaparte III, a colonist
    spacecraft linking Earth and
    Mars. Having already worked
    on Bonaparte III for 4
    months when Cage first 
    boarded a year earlier, Ares
    showed Cage the ropes.
    Something of a genius, the
    normally taciturn Ares met
    Cage late one night after
    work, when he was playing a
    "piano" that he had conjured
    by altering a program on a 
    PC in the ship's lobby. cage
    happened upon his impromptu
    concert and was so moved
    that he began talking to him.
    At first, Ares was irked by
    the intrusion, but he
    eventually gave in to Cage's 
    perseverance and found 
    himself, much to his own 
    surprise, becoming Cage's 
    friend and looking after him.
    Fellow Bonaparte staff
    dubbed the unlikely pair "The
    Eight Wonder of Bonaparte."
    
    Myona Alderan
    Female 
    17 years old
    Blood type A
    
    A mysterious girl found
    hiding in a storage room on
    board the Bonaparte III.
    Since the accident involving 
    the unidentified object, she
    sticks with Cage and his
    group. Having suffered
    retrograde amnesia since the
    incident, what little personal
    information that is known of
    Myona has been pieced
    together based on occasional
    hints about her past. Though
    she sometimes hints at a 
    determined and headstrong
    personality hidden deep
    inside, she is shy and rarely 
    acts aggressively. Serious
    yet somehow flighty, she also
    seems slightly imbalanced,
    which may have something to 
    do with her loss of
    memory....
    
    Pharsti
    (Artificial
     Intelligence)
     
    The "Navigation Program"
    installed in the vehicle
    boarded by Cage and Myona
    immediately following the
    Bonaparte III's collision with
    the unidentified object. In
    these days, when
    voice-activated OSs are a 
    dime a dozen, he (she?) is
    special, incorporating highly

    its creation?
    
    Semyl Shambrow
    Female
    16 years old
    Blood type O
    
    A robust girl who, for some
    reason, speaks in street
    slang. Constantly aware of
    the fact that she is short.
    Has a love-hate relationship
    with Razma. Although she
    grew up in an orphanage, 
    she displays the healthy
    outgoingness of someone who
    had a very happy childhoo.d
    In reality, her childhood was
    difficult, having been subject
    to Ender prejudice by
    humans from Earth. Joined
    the Resistance early to
    regain self respect for herself,
    and also to help ensure a 
    happier future for her
    "siblings" at the institution
    Lost a friend recently to
    some trouble associated with 
    a romantic relationship with 
    an Earthling human. A 
    responsible big sister at the
    orphanage, underneath it all,
    she's just a sensitive 
    16-year-old.
    
    Mebius K. Lylekraft
    Female
    26 years old
    Blood type B
    
    A mature lady whose soft,
    kind demeanor belies her
    skilled, sharp strategic
    abilities. Mebius moved to
    Mars with her husband, who
    died in an accident while on
    his way to buy a toy for the
    couple's unborn baby; she
    then lost her baby (who was
    to be named Tia) due to a
    micarriage. It was then that
    Mebius, despondent over the
    loss of her loved once and
    waiting for death's embrace,
    met Deckson, who was
    conducting research into the
    very accident which killed
    her husband, in an attempt 
    to prove that an Earthling
    General was responsible for
    the tragedy. Hurt and angry,
    she joined BIS, where she
    works alongside Deckson. It
    seems that Mebius has
    deeper feelings for Deckson
    than just trust, but she
    either does not realize this,
    or she is in denial as they
    work together and as she
    remains loyal to her dead
    husband.
    
    Razma Cascade Jr.
    Male
    19 years old
    Blood type A
    
    The skirt-chasing
    troublemaker of BIS, he is
    surprisingly reliable where it 
    counts. Somewhat childish, 
    but also remarkably
    preceptive sometimes. A 
    gifted sharpshooter with
    excellent hearing and
    eyesight. Seems to have a
    thing for Semyl, but nothing
    has materialized as of yet.
    His only family is his sick
    mother, who tells him that
    his father was a
    "high-profile Earthling";
    howver, they have never
    spoken with one another.
    Obsessed with the idea of
    the father he never met, he
    may have found a paternal
    figure in Deckson...
    
    Tadamichi E. Yukito
    Male
    24 years old
    Blood type AB
    
    Ardent fan of and expert in
    old-school, sci-fi, low-budget 
    movie stars, and 20th-21st
    century Japanimation. Deeply
    involved in his own world, he
    is fiercely individual and
    mature in his self-assurance.
    Raised in a very proper,
    traditional family consisting 
    of his father and his
    siblings, he ignored his
    family's wishes for him to
    join the corporate pack,
    stating, "Suits don't become
    me," and left home. The res
    is history.
    
    Warren Lumeniux
    Male
    33 years old
    Blood type A
    
    Prudent and overly cautious,
    he is often the butt of
    jokes; regardless, he is
    trusted for his knowledge
    and experience. A former
    mercenary, he always wears
    black sunglasses and does
    not speak much, giving him
    the aura of the "consummate
    professional." Once an expert
    gunman, he gave up his
    profession after an accident
    in which he mistakenly shot
    a young female hostage.
    Following the event, he
    wandered from place to 
    place, eventually ending up in
    BIS on Mars. Has romantic
    feelings for a certain BIS 
    member, but, not being very
    suave, has not yet
    succeeded in winning her
    over.
    
    Philbright
    Male
    17 years old
    Blood type AB
    
    Full name "Philbright 
    Westriverside Warehouserock
    XXVI." Excels in household 
    chores such as cooking, 
    cleaning, and laundry. Easily
    frazzled. Because of his
    long, beribboned blond hair
    and his high-pitched voice, 
    he is often mistaken for a
    girl. Phil owes his long name
    to his "father," who believed
    an old superstition that luck
    comes to people with long 
    names. He grew up in a 
    happy family among many
    unrelated siblings, but
    tragedy struck one day when
    his "father" sampled a 
    medication which induced a
    sudden fit of insane violence.
    Confused and horrified, Phil
    was able to defend himself
    from the savage attack, but
    when he came back to his
    senses, his entire family,
    including his father, was 
    dead. The manufacturer of 
    the medicine attempted to 
    cover up the incident and
    lay the blame on Phil, at
    which time Deckson rescued
    the unfortunate youth and
    took him under his wing. Now
    a BIS member support 
    officer, he has a crush on
    Myona...
    
    Deckson Geyse
    Male
    42 years old
    Blood type O
    
    Founder and father figure of 
    BIS. Believing that he merely
    lent a hand to the Mars
    Resistance movement, he
    does not realize the full
    extent of his influence in
    Martian politics, although he
    would gladly give his life to
    support the cause. A family
    man, he used to be an
    officer in the UNSF, where
    he enjoyed moderate
    success, but was divorced 
    by his wife due to long work
    hours. Having lost his main
    motivation in life and
    besieged with guilt over his
    participation in the Enders,
    he left the UNSF and began 
    to research the strange
    goings-on brought on by 
    Earthlings, earning him both
    friends and foes along the
    way. His support base
    continued to grow, and
    eventually formed BIS.
    
    Robin O'Connell
    Female
    33 eyars old
    Blood type O
    
    BIS's main sponsor. Roughly 
    90% of BIS capital comes 
    from the Robin Foundation,
    an udnerground group run
    by Robin herself. Boasting a
    wide network of connections
    and tremendous resources,
    the group does whatever it
    can to assist BIS, from
    procuring power source
    units and other parts for
    army machine prototypes to
    findign maintenance experts
    and catching fugitives. A 
    beautiful but tough
    businesswoman-type, she is
    nurturing and motherly
    toward BIS members.
    
    Twede Grey
    Male
    30s
    Blood type unknown
    
    Robin's secretary. Cloaked
    head-to toe in black witg
    dark glasses and black 
    gloves, ge rarely speaks and
    almost never reveals any of
    his emotions. Keen and
    observant, he is almost 
    psychic in his understanding
    of people; he is precise and
    swift in his work, often
    getting the job done before 
    others even think of asking 
    him to take care of it.
    
    Lance Jimmer
    Male
    20s
    Blood type unknown
    
    Man of mystery. Has
    razor-thin slits for eyes,
    and is somewhat reptilian.
    Although he gives the
    impression that he is always
    smiling, his eyes are eerily
    expressionless. In fact, his
    face is like a creepy mask.
    Nobody really knows of his 
    origins nor his motivations,
    but it is clear that he does
    not champion the Martians'
    cause.
    
    Dezeele Zephyrs
    Male
    49 years old
    Blood type B
    
    High-ranking officer from
    Earth. has a tendency to
    look down on others, but will
    not tolerate others oding the
    same to him. Convinced that
    he is better than anyone, he
    is self-centered and feels no 
    guilt for all the suffering he
    has caused in his career.
    Born to a poverty-stricken
    household as the youngest
    child, he harbors a 
    resentment toward all people
    who are rewarded with 
    money and opportunity
    despite a profound lack of
    talent. This resentment 
    caused him to turn his
    talents toward getting ahead
    at all costs. After gaining
    success as a scientist, he
    quickly moved up the
    hierarchy to his current
    position as Lab Supervisor. 
    While he is disliked, nobody
    dares cross him because he
    is as influential as he is
    unpleasant.
    
    Ned Noachim
    Male
    27 years old
    Blood type O
    
    Zephyr's assistant.
    Completely lacks any sort of
    leadership skills, but thanks
    to Zephyrs, has achieved a 
    degree of status in the
    army. Views Martians as
    subhuman and repeatedly
    commits racist crimes
    against them. Also prejudiced
    against women, who find him
    loathsome. He attributes his
    complex to past experience
    without realizing that it's no
    excuse to be a pig. Used to
    be called "Scarface."
    
    Bolozof Velasgo
    Male
    29 years old
    Blood type A
    
    Silver-haired and lithe, with
    glittering eyes that hint at a
    soul full of malice. Cold and
    robotic, he escaped to Mars
    to avoid trouble he spawned
    when he permanently injured
    some colleagues in training. 
    Views Martians as nothing
    more than slaves to be bent
    to his will. he follows the
    orders of Zephyrs, but...
    
    Nadia Candido
    Female
    19 years old
    Blood type A
    
    One of Bolozof's assistants,
    as well as his mistress. The 
    fact that the Martian-hating
    Bolozof keeps her at his 
    side leads her to believe
    mistakenly that Bolozof 
    recognizes her talent and 
    loves her. A hard-working
    and earnest military 
    employee.
    
    Amante Furlair
    Female
    16 years old
    Blood type unknown
    
    Like Nadia, an assistant of
    Bolozof. under her youthful
    and innocent appearance
    lurks the heart of a cruel,
    vicious demon. The wicked
    look in her eyes betrays 
    something of her true
    nature. Numerous men have
    approached her, judging her
    wrongly by her harmless
    looks, only to find 
    themselves used and dumped
    in the end. Looks to be 
    about 16, but her actual age
    is unknown.
    
    Tim Frazer
    Male
    38 years old
    Blood type A
    
    Mars Army officer. Looks
    older thanhis years due to
    endless problems with the
    Resistance, which may have
    something to do with his
    being forever signle. No star
    qualities, but a nice guy
    nonetheless. Has caught the
    BIS leader Deckson on a
    number of occasions, but has
    never been able to keep him.
    Has one half-brother.
    
    Cubick Noyce
    Female
    29 years old
    Blood type B
    
    The eldest of the "Mars 
    Angels," she zips around
    space in her custom-built
    LEV in pursuit of eligible
    bachelors. She is naturally
    beautiful, but her looks are 
    also a product of unthinkable
    effort and an arsenal of
    makeup. Complains a lot. Not 
    too fond of Palme, and calls
    her "Ms. Plame." Height: 5'9".
    Weight: secret. 38-25-33.

    Introverted middle "sister" 
    of the Mars Angels. (The
    Mars Angels are not related
    by blood.) Good-looking, but
    can't seem to land a

    issues. Well-trained in hexes

    Johnny Irving
    Male
    43 years old
    Blood type O
    
    High-ranking officer in the
    Mars Army. He is a pushover
    who was bullied into
    cooperating by Zephyrs.
    Emotionally weak, scrawny,
    and always has a look of
    consternation on his face. He
    and Zephyrs call each other
    by name, but there doesn't 
    seem to be a real friendship
    between them
    
    Patrick Jaeger
    Male
    55 years old
    Blood type A
    
    High-ranking officer from
    Earth. Lets nothing escape
    unnoticed. He has escaped
    death on numerous
    occasions, and seems kind
    but is actually not as soft
    as he looks. His age is
    starting to show.

    11 years old
    Blood type O
    
    Nickname "Jojo." A simple and
    innocent young girl from the
    same orphanage that Semyl

    Urenbeck Catapult
    
         Derived from metatron
         technology, the Urenbeck
         catapult utilizes the
         distortion and potential
         energy of space to enable
         travel at great speeds
         through space. Because
         tremendous amounts of 
         electricity and power are 
         necessary yo activate this
         device, it is not used for
         regular commercial purposes.
         Currently, the Catapult can
         be found at L2 on Earth and
         Deimos near Mars. There is
         also a catapult at the L2 on
         Europa near Jupiter, which
         is used as the gateway to
         the Anterior.
    
    LEV
    
         Laborious Extra-Orbital
         Vehicle. Developed to
         facilitate the building of
         space stations and colonies.
         Manned vehicle used for
         transportation in space.
         
    Ender
    
         Refers to an inhabitant of
         space in the area between 
         Mars and Jupiter, the "end
         of the world"- the term
         connotes a country bumpkin.
         For Earthlings, the word is
         used to describe inhabitants
         of Mars; for Martians, it
         points to those living in
         Jupiter territory.
    
    Orbital Frame
    
         Known as an OF. Battle unit
         invented and used by
         BAHRAM. Because it runs on
         the precious resource
         metatron, it is much faster
         and stronger than an LEV.
    
    SSA (Self-Supporting Armor)
    
         Found on the outer shell of
         Orbital Frames. Derived from
         metatron technology, the
         metatron alloy coating on the
         exterior simultaneously gives
         it pliability, strength, and
         hardness exceeding that of
         ceramic components. Also
         able to self-repair using its
         own energy and metatron
         alloy.
    
    Deimos Incident
    
         Terrorist attack by
         anti-Earth officials of
         BAHRAM. The Orbital Frame, 
         which was being tested by
         BAHRAM, was seized, the UNSF
         was assaulted, and Deimos
         Station was engulfed in a
         terrible tragedy. Since then,
         the Orbital Frame has 
         become public property, and
         tensions between Earth and
         Mars have been on the rise.
    
    Transplantation
    
         Refers to the act of
         "downloading" on a metatron
         computer. On a von
         Neumann-type computer it
         would correspond to "file
         transfer," but in this case
         the actual circuits
         comprisign the file are
         physically transported to a
         new location and the old
         circuits expunged.
        
    
    NUT
    
         Nereidum Universal
         Technology. Major
         conglomerate which began a
         space development program
         in the early 21st century.
         The largest manufacturer of
         LEVs, as well as the inventor
         of the Orbital Frame.
         Headquarters located in
         Nereidum County, Mars.
    
    Martian
    
         Refers to those born in
         Martian territory.
    
    Metatron
    
         Considered one of the two
         greatest discoveries in
         space development, along
         with the LEV, this mineral
         ore was found on Callisto, a
         moon of Jupiter, in the early
         21st century. Widely
         researched and applied in a
         number of different fields.
    
    Metatron Computer
    
         An enormous improvement 
         upon the previously popular
         von Neumann digital
         computer, this quantum
         computer, which incorporates
         metatron-based integrated 
         circuits, is both compact and
         exceedingly quick. Memory
         and programs are managed 
         on a single, constantly
         changing set of circuits, so
         that both of these 
         operations take place 
         simultaneously and
         constantly. In terms of
         quantum physics, it operates
         in a different dimension.
    
    Cage's button
    
         An outdated model of
         wearable player containing
         the recording of Ares' 
         impromptu performance. Can
         be clipped onto one's
         garments for easy mobility,
         and includes basic features
         such as playing, recording, 
         and voice memo.
    
    Handy PC
    
         Mobile device given to Cage
         by Lewy. Although small, it
         has the largest memory
         allocation in its class and
         can even play movies.
    
    Debris

    | SCENES SCRIPT                     |
     -----------------------------------
    
    Most of Earth's natural resources had finally been exhausted,
    and the tiny planet was unable to support the soaring population
    of humans. In 2045 mankind began to look beyond Earth for 
    solutions and built the first Earth-space track orbital elevator.
    The "Space Age" had officially begun, and countries all over the
    world dove into countless research projects and space development 
    plans. It was then that the human race created and discovered 
    several new tools that would change life forever; the LEV, a
    pilot-controlled interspace robot; the resource Metatron, 
    excavated from the Jupiter moon, Callisto; and the Urenbeck
    Catapult, a device which, by manipulating space, enabled 
    hyper-speed travel. The discovery and invention of these so-
    called "tools" expedited the progress of the space development 
    project resulting in an exodus into space; in the span of a 
    single century, more than 20 million people took up residencesin 
    colonies on the moon, Mars, and as far as Jupiter terrirory. The 
    transition from Earth to space seemed to be going smoothly - 
    however, new conflicts were just beginning to matrialize.
    Human beings left on Earth began to refer to these colonists as 
    "Enders", a derogatory term for those "living at the end of 
    civilization", expressing their prejudiced attitudes toward 
    non-Earth inhabitants. In response, these immigrants, who were 
    subject to discrimination on top of living in harsh environments, 
    bonded together in their bitterness against Earth... and tensions
    between the two groups would only be magnified as time passed. In 
    2158, anger on the immigrant side culminated in the founding of 
    BAHRAM, an  anti-Earth military unit based in Vacilia County,
    Mars - and its subsequent clandestine invention of the Metatron 
    "Orbital Frame",  an entirely new type of LEV-like machine. From
    there, it was one tragedy after another. The Deimos Incident.
    Anterior Intervention. The threat of orbital elevator destruction.
    Since the advent of BAHRAM and the Orbital Frame, the already
    precarious equilibrium keeping the peace between Earth and space
    was rapidly falling apart. And in 2173, amidst the political 
    turmoil, another ship filled with immigrants left Earth for the 
    Zone of The Enders...

    Cage:		Ouch! Please let me go!
    
    Scary Guy:	Can't do that. See, someone
    		took my money.
    
    Cage:		Oh, no, a burglary? that's
    		terrible! No, wait. You
    		know what? They'll be able to find

    Cage:		Huh?
    
    Scary Guy:	...There's no reason to tell

    		call the police...?
    
    Scary Guy:	Fineby me. If you do that,
    		you're the one who'll suffer

    		up my story right here.
    
    Cage:		Whoa! A Handy PC... And it's
    		the newest model! Wasn't it
    		expensive?

    		to get it.

    		so you don't get that stolen.
    		Well, I should really get
    		going.... See ya!

    Cage:		Hmph. So...?
    
    Scary Guy:	You're still going to play

    Scary Guy:	How... Oh, I get it. You're in
    		on this too, aren't you.
    
    ????:		I think that's enough, sir. I
    		would stop right there if I
    		were you.
    
    Scary Guy:	What?! Who do you think...?!?!
    
    ????:		I'm telling you to cut it out.
    		If you want to make some
    		spare change, find a better
    		way to do it.
    
    Scary Guy:	You want some of this!?
    
    ????:		Thought you'd never ask, Mr.
    		Lewy.
    
    Cage:		Don't, Ares. I'm fine. I can
    		handle this.
    
    Lewy:		How did you know my... Ares?
    		Ohhh... Heh heh. Sorry about
    		the hassle--I was just having
    		some fun. H-here, you can
    		keep this.
    
    Cage:		Really? Gee, thanks!
    
    Lewy:		Yeah, so let's keep this a 
    		secret. OK?
    
    Cage:		I got this Handy PC!
    
    Ares:		Are you okay, Cage?
    
    Cage:		Yeah. You know that guy?
    
    Ares:		...Nah. More importantly, why
    		is it that you're always in
    		some sort of trouble?
    
    Cage:		Heh heh. Sorry. But it's all
    		good--you save me every
    		time, so I'm not worried at
    		all.
    
    Ares:		<<sigh>> Well, we should get
    		ready for landing. We'll be at
    		Deimos soon.

    Pilot:
    Sir, there's nothing coming

    You can't depend on

    maneuvered manually through
    debris-filled magnetic

    Captain! Something's headed
    this way! It's... so fast! It's

    ???????(1st):	...well, I was expecting to

    ???????(2nd):	At ay rate, I am hardly the

    ?????(3rd):	...self-serving action by an

    		mistakes, covering it up with

    Security Force:	Cage Midwell, age 17... Hmm...
    
    Cage:		So I've been telling you, if
    		you'd just listen to my side
    		of the story...
    
    Security Force:	Ah, yes, the one about how
    		you were attacked by the
    		devil and made an emergency
    		landing on Mars?
    
    Cage:		Not the devil, an LEV that
    		LOOKED LIKE the devil. I was
    		working on the Bonaparte III
    		as a...
    
    Security Force:	Silence! You terrorists!
    
    Cage:		Terrorist?!?
    
    Myona:		(Am I a... terrorist? It does
    		have a familiar ring to it...)
    
    Cage:		I know! I can prove it--just
    		look at the security satellite
    		record, and you'll see that
    		we landed in that LEV--we
    		came through the atmosphere,
    		and...
    
    
    Security Officer: If you're going to lie anyway,
    		make it more believable!
    		Besides, there's no such
    		satellite record. Which means
    		you were on the surface to
    		begin with. There's no doubt
    		that you attacked the UNSF
    		facilities a few hours ago. I
    		don't know yet where you hid
    		that new LEV, but finding it is
    		just a matter of time.
    		Because of you, countless
    		civilians have suffered....
    
    The Security Officer bangs his hands on the table angrily
    
    Security Officer: And even then you persist
    		with this fantasy?! Yo'll pay
    		for this, I'll see to it that
    		you do!
    
    Cage:		Why? I didn't do anything
    		wrong!
    
    		I escaped only to find myself
    		in the middle of a battle, and
    		I've only been trying to save
    		myself....
    
    		So don't accuse me of all
    		these things when you haven't
    		even looked into them!
    
    Myona:		(Is he... crying? He's telling
    		the truth--he's no
    		terrorist....)
    
    Security Officer: OK, now you're trying to earn
    		my sympathy. You'll be feeling
    		real sorry for yourself once
    		I catch you. Bonaparte III
    		went down, and so did 
    		everyone it it. You really
    		thought you could fool me like
    		that, son?
    
    Cage:		Wh... What do you mean?
    
    Security Officer: THIS is what I mean.
    
    News Anchor:	... suffered great damage, and
    		the cause of the accident is
    		still unknown. According to
    		Lieutenant Noachim, who 
    		surveyed the crash site, the

    		associated with engine trouble
    		or some sort of misjudgment
    		by the pilot; there are no
    		survivors. Among those listed
    		as passengers are Earth
    		inhabitants Adam Twize, Alman
    		Ov....

     -------------------------
    |Cell                     \____________________
    
    Cage:		...Dead? ...Everyone? How can
    		that be, where some people
    		escaped... But why? Why???
    
    Myona:		Calm down.
    
    Cage:		Calm down? How am I 
    		supposed to calm down?! I
    		didn't do anything!
    
    Myona:		I don't know what's going on
    		either, but I know you're no
    		criminal. Besides, the Cage
    		Midwell who was on the news
    		as a deceased passenger
    		wasn't you.
    
    Cage:		What?
    
    Myona:		Someone must have checked
    		in with your name, which is
    		why they don't believe you...
    		Tell me everything that
    		happened up until now.
    
    Cage:		Ok...
    
    Cage:		....................
    
    Myona:		For instance, how about this?
    		Someone steals a new,
    		top-secret weapon and rises
    		up directly to the upper
    		strata where the Bonaparte
    		is... Then he approaches and
    		attacks.
    
    Cage:		Wait a minute! How did he get
    		up to the upper strata? And 
    		how in the world is it my
    		fault now?
    
    Myona:		Well... I'd say there are two
    		different ways of looking at
    		it. First, perhaps it was
    		someone high-profile, who
    		wanted to avoid a scandal - 
    		like a politician, or a relative
    		of a politician. Or it's also
    		possible that there was
    		nobody on board - an
    		unmanned fighter.
    
    Cage:		But... It was talking...
    
    Myona:		If it had some degree of
    		auto-pilot capability, and
    		wasn't remote-controlled... it's
    		possible. Even the LEV that
    		we were on could talk.
    
    Cage:		That's true... You remember 
    		that?
    
    Myona:		Strange... I wonder why.
    		Hmm... no, I can't remember
    		anything else. Anyway, that
    		black LEV that you fought
    		against is a new model, and
    		they're probably trying to
    		cover up its activity.
    
    Cage:		Right... ANd that's why they
    		want to put the blame on us,
    		so they can keep the
    		secret...
    
    Myona:		They're going to say that
    		there are no witnesses, and
    		that the LEV thta attacked 
    		Bonaparte was the LEV we
    		were on. What do you think?
    
    Cage:		W-what are we going to do?
    		If we don't do something,
    		they'll....
    
    Cage's button plays a music
    
    Myona:		Where's that music coming 
    		from? It's not coming from 
    		your button, is it?
    
    Cage:		Oh... Yeah...
    
    Myona:		It's very pretty... and very...
    		familiar...
    
    Cage:		That's Ares playing.
    
    Myona:		Ares...?
    
    Cage:		What's wrong?
    
    Myona:		Oh, nothing. You two were
    		close, then.
    
    Cage:		Actually, this song marks the
    		beginning of our our
    		friendship. It was a very
    		important momemnt in my life.
    
    Myona:		...
    
    Cage:		I have to live throught his.
    		For Ares, and for everyone
    		else.
    
    Myona:		You're right, you can't give
    		up now.
    
    Cage:		Yeah. I have to become
    		independent, and learn to live
    		without Ares...
    
    ???? (hmmm, a very familiar silhouette):
    		Aw, that's cruel. ARe you

    		around anymore?
    
    Myona(shocked):	?!
    
    Cage:		Whuh?! Huh??!?!? It can't be!
    		But that voice... no. I must be
    		dreaming!
    
    Ares:		...Cage. Come over here and
    		let me see your face. I'm
    		opening up the peephole now.
    
    Cage:		A... res? It's got to... be a 
    		dream... But....
    
    Ares:		OK. Just another step
    		forward...
    
    Cage:		OWWW!
    
    Ares:		See? It's not a dream, is it?
    
    Cage:		Ares? It's you!! Ares! It
    		really is you!!
    
    Ares:		All right, let's save the
    		touching reunion for later,
    		and figure out how to undo
    		this lock and get me out of 
    		here.
    
    ???????:	Here's the combination.
    
    Ares:		Huh?!
    
    ???????:	Don't be scared--I'm on your
    		side. I've been listening to
    		what you've beens saying, so I

    The lock opens
    
    Cage:		It worked!
    
    Ares:		OK. Let's go!
    
    Cage:		OK!
    
    ???????:	Wait! Aren't you going to let
    		me out?
    
    ##### Scene 02: Perpetual Motion #######
    
    Cage:		So... How did you get here?
    		First of all, how did you
    		escape? And second of all,
    		how did you know where to
    		find us?
    
    Ares:		I actually escaped in a pod. I
    		was watching the local news,
    		and it said that all the people
    		who escaped had died in the
    		accident. And then I found 
    		out that you were under
    		arrest as the culprit... So I
    		came to your rescue.
    
    Cage:		Oh... I didn't think I was ever
    		going to see you again! I'm
    		really glad that wasn't the
    		case.
    		
    Ares:		Well, I'm... I guess I'm glad
    		too.
    
    Cage:		Oops, almost forgot. This here
    		is Myona. We escaped
    		together.
    
    Myona:		Pleased to meet you, Mr...
    		Ares. My name is Myona.
    
    Ares:		Huh?!
    
    Cage:		She can't remember anything
    		pre-accident... Do you
    		remember seeing her on the
    		ship?
    
    Ares:		She can't remember?... Oh...
    		no, I'm srry - I don't think 
    		we know each other.
    
    ???????:	...Here we are....
    
    Cage:		That's the LEV we came in
    		on...
    
    Ares:		And you are...??
    
    ???????:	Me? I am Deckson. And this - 
    		this is like my backyard. But
    		more importantly...
    
    Enemy LEVs appear
    
    Deckson:	On second thought, it's too
    		early for that. Never mind.
    		You arrived in that LEV, did 
    		you say? If you could just
    		hold on for a little while... my
    		friend has no concept of
    		time.
    
    Cage:		Certainly!
    
    Cage:		There we go. Long time no

    Pharsti:	...So We Are To Be A Decoy?
    
    Cage:		Yeah, I suppose you could
    		look at it like that. Oh, and
    		don't aim at the cockpit... and
    		even if I do, don't let me,
    		OK?
    
    Pharsti:	Disable But Do Not Destroy...
    		Acknowledged.
    
    COMMENCE BATTLE
    
    After defeating a LEV
    
    Pharsti:	Attacking Enemy... Pilot
    		Evacuated.
    
    Cage:		Way to go! Keep it up!
    
    Pharsti:	I'm Sorry, Last Command Not
    		Recognized. Current Strategy
    		Very Ineffective. Why Do You
    		Save The Pilot? You Endanger 
    		Yourself.
    
    Cage:		Well, that's because...
    
    -> I don't know:
    	Cage:		I cant explain it... But that's
    			just the way it is!
    	
    	Pharsti: 	...Roger. I Am Programmed To
    			Do As I Am Commanded. I
    			Apologize If I Angered You.
    
    -> You can't hurt each other.
    
    	Cage:		People shouldn't hurt each
    			other. Especially in my case,
    			because there's no reason to
    			fight - it's just a 
    			misunderstanding.
    	
    	Pharsti:	I Understand... Your Thinking
    			Analysis Has Been Completed.
    			Data Saved.
    	
    	Cage:		(Do you really understand?)
    	
    	
    After defeating the two LEVs
    
    Deckson:	Hey... not bad. I wouldn't mind
    		having one of these around
    		myself.
    
    Ares:		...
    
    More Enemy LEVs appear
    
    Security Force: You again, Deckson. Why do
    		you always need to make
    		trouble?
    
    Deckson,:	Well, Tim... oops, I guess I'm
    		supposed to call you Frazer
    		now... I haven't done anything,
    		as a matter of fact. Earth 
    		has been antagonizing Mars
    		for a while now, and as they
    		say, what comes around goes
    		around. I'm just helping out a
    		little bit with the natural
    		progression of things.
    
    Frazer:		You haven't changed a bit,
    		Deckson. Unfortunately for
    		you, this is the last chance
    		you'll have to spout off your
    		self-serving speeches. You
    		will all be charged the
    		heaviest charge available for
    		escaping incarceration. Capital
    		punishment for you all!
    
    More Enemy LEVs...
    
    Frazer:		Now cut it out and take
    		responsibility for your own
    		actions!
    
    Deckson:	Well... no thanks.
    
    An enemy LEV explodes and an ally LEV appears from afar
    
    Frazer:		WHAT?!
    
    ????? (redhaired boy):
    		Hey! Sorry I'm late! I'll make
    		it up to you. Guess what
    		Planet Airhead girl did...
    
    Frazer:		That's not possible... You're
    		saying they hit it at that
    		distance?!
    
    ?????(auburn-haired girl):
    		Boy, who you callin' Planet
    		Airhead girl? You wanna take
    		this outside?
    
    ????? (boy):	Stoppp, you're s-scaring me!
    
    Semyl (the girl): (He's gonna get it later on...)
    
    a blue vehicle appears
    
    ???? (some yellow haired guy):
    		Here I am!
    
    Deckson:	Phil... We've grown roots
    		waiting for you. Come on,
    		climb aboard, all. Don't worry,
    		they're all trustworthy.
    
    Myona:		Um.... But...
    
    Phil(blushing):	Uhh...
    
    Ares:		Come on, we don't have a 
    		choice. If we don't go with
    		them, we'll be executed for
    		sure.
    
    Phil:		That is correct! Please, come
    		this way!
    
    Myona:		Hm?... Okay...
    
    Deckson:	OK... Cage, do you copy?
    
    Cage:		Yes, I hear you.
    
    Deckson:	We're going to have to
    		separate. Visibility on this
    		end is very bad, and it's
    		dangerous. you'll have to
    		navigate.
    
    Cage:		Where should I go?
    
    Deckson:	Guide us to that point over
    		there. Good luck. Semyl!
    		Razma! He's my guest, and
    		he's coming with me.
    
    Semyl:		Got it, boss. We'll take good
    		care of him. Let's go!
    
    Razma (redhaired): What's with the new lingo?
    
    Semyl:		Razma, you like missiles?
    
    Razma:		OK, let's get going! Nice to
    		meet you, new guy!
    
    Cage:		Uh-huh.... Uh...
    
    After defeating Frazer:
    
    Frazer:		Deckson! I'll catch you if it
    		means I have to go to the
    		edge of the universe to find
    		you! You remember that!!
    	
    After defeating all enemies:
    
    Phil:		Goody! Now we can escape!
    
    Deckson:	Hm. Good job, Cage.
    
    Myona:		Wow! You didn't strike me as
    		being that reliable... I'm so
    		impressed!
    
    Cage:		Er... Yeah, thanks.
    
    Phil:		...
    
    Security Facility
    
    ????? (blue-haired girl):
    		...It never ends.
    
    Security Soldier: 
    		Who the hell are you? Where 
    		is your identification?
    
    ?????:		UNSF Special Task Force
    		Acemos. Nadia Candido.
    		Satisfied?
    
    Security Soldier:
    		<<gulp>> Acemos?... The army
    		elite force?
    
    Nadia:		Who the hell are you, and
    		where is YOUR identification?
    
    Frazer:		...I'm very sorry. As his
    		superior, I am raedy to take
    		responsibility for his
    		wrongdoing....
    
    Nadia:		<<snicker>> Things haven't
    		changed a bit, have they?
    		Which is why you're still a
    		security supervisor.
    
    Frazer:		I only aim to fulfill my post
    		as I am instructed.
    
    Nadia:		Anyway, I will let the heads
    		know about this. You take it
    		from there.
    
    Frazer:		Yes, ma'am.
    
    Security Soldier:
    		She is an acquaintance of
    		yours?
    
    Frazer:		Yeah. I was her instructor
    		for a while... just a little
    		while. It was a very long time
    		ago.
    
    Security Soldier:
    		I see...

    Cage:		...Whoa... I never knew this
    		place existed.
    
    Deckson:	...Did you sleep well?
    
    Cage:		Oh! Good morning! I just
    		realized I hadn't introduced
    		myself yet. I'm...
    
    Deckson:	Cage, right? The girl is
    		Myona, and the one who
    		saved you both was Ares.
    
    Cage:		Huh?! ...That's right, you
    		heard us talking.
    
    Deckson:	I've told everyone here about
    		you, so there's nothing to
    		fear. This is the
    		Headquarters of the
    		Anti-Terrestrial League BIS.
    		As long as you're here, the
    		UNSF can't get to you.
    
    Cage:		Ahhh... Is that so? S-so I
    		guess that would make you a
    		te-te-terrorist??
    
    Deckson:	Hm... I don't much enjoy being
    		labeled like that, but I
    		suppose from an Earthling's
    		perspective, that's the way it
    		looks.
    
    Cage:		Oh my God... What do I do?
    		They don't seem like bad
    		people... But Ares always says
    		not to judge a book by its
    		cover...
    
    Razma:		Um... Cage, right? That's not
    		the kind thing you should
    		verbalize!
    
    Cage:		Hunh? Was I talking aloud
    		just now??
    
    Razma:		Yep. Loud and clear.
    
    Cage:		Oh. Heh, heh. Er....
    
    Myona enters
    
    Myona:		Good morning. Everyone's up
    		so early.
    
    Razma:		Well, hello there, Princess.
    		Sleep well?
    
    Myona:		...Yes, I did.
    
    Semyl enters
    
    Semyl:		WASSSUUUP!
    
    Razma:		You're late. You sleep too
    		much.
    
    SEmyl:		You always so grouchy in the
    		morning? Want me to knock
    		you back to sleep?
    
    Razma:		Unfortunately, my grandma
    		taught me never to hit a
    		girl.
    
    Semyl:		Oh, so now I'm a girl. I get
    		it. In that case...
    
    Semyl hits Razma
    
    Razma:		Ow!! Wha?! What was that 
    		for?!
    
    Semyl:		Hmmm... What's with the raised
    		fist? Your beliefs are pretty
    		shaky, huh?
    
    Razma hits Semyl
    
    Semyl:		YOW! Whatcha doin'?!??!
    
    Razma:		I amended my policy just now,
    		and decided that those who 
    		are female only by anatomy
    		do not qualify as female.
    
    Semyl:		OOOOO! I'm gonna show you -
    
    Ares enters
    
    Ares:		Good morning, Cage.
    
    Semyl (blush):	- some nice things, but shall
    		we call it a day, Mr. Razma?
    
    Cage:		...
    
    Semyl:		Hello, Ares... may I call you
    		Ares? I'm Semyl, Semyl
    		Shambrow. Enchanted. Did you
    		sleep well last night?
    
    Ares:		Mr. Deckson, I took the
    		liberty of giving myself a 
    		tour of the facilities - it's
    		very impressive indeed.
    
    Semyl:		(Dang... boy just ignored me
    		completely! WhatEVER, never
    		expected nothing anyway...)
    		
    Deckson:	Well, thank you. I'm flattered.
    
    Myona:		Where is the blonde gentleman
    		from yesterday?
    
    Deckson:	Hm? Oh, Mr. Philbright, eh?
    		He's out running some
    		errands right now, but you'll
    		have a chance to get
    		acquainted later. Now that
    		our three guests are all
    		here, I'd like to have a little
    		chat...
    
    Phil enters
    
    Phil:		Oh my God, oh my God, oh my
    		God.... Boss! It's an
    		emergency!!
    		
    Deckson:	Speak of the devil... Back so
    		soon? How was Yukito?
    
    Phil:		Well, he was doing very well,
    		and... that's not what I was
    		trying to tell you! There's
    		been an emergency! The UNSF
    		is raiding the hospital!
    
    Razma:		D-Did they find ouit that he's
    		staying there?
    
    Semyl:		That don't sound too good...
    		Nah, that's real bad.
    
    Phil:		That's not a real concern, as
    		they completely overlooked
    		two men: Mr. Yukito and
    		myself.
    
    Cage:		(Men?! He's a... he?? I was
    		convinced he was a girl...
    		Oops, gotta pay attention...)
    
    Phil:		Their interest in the hospital
    		seems to have something to
    		do with a new pharmaceutical
    		they are using on patients in
    		critical condition.
    
    Deckson:	...Hmm... So they're planning
    		on stealing it and selling it at
    		a higher price.
    
    Razma:		There's only one person I
    		can think of who would do
    		something like that.
    	
    Deckson:	Mm-hmm. Ned Noachim... that
    		filthy cretin with the powerful
    		friend. There's no time to
    		waste. Come on, we have to
    		get movign. Cage, I'd like you
    		to come with me for
    		assistance.
    
    Cage:		Me? Umm... O-OK.

    |BIS Hideout               \____________________
    
    Myona: 		.....? Why is everyone
    		gathered around, did
    		something happen?
    
    Deckson: 	Ah, perfect timing. The other
    		day there was an anti-tax
    		increase demonstration, and
    		there was a skirmish between
    		civilians and the UNSF. There 
    		were a few casualties.
    
    Cage: 		Casualties at a protest?
    
    Ares: 		Yeah. Apparently some 
    		civilians fired at UNSF troops.
    		Well, that's according to a
    		report from Earth. They say
    		that it started out as a fight
    		between the parties involving
    		LEVs.
    		
    Razma: 		That's just the dumbest thing 
    		I've ever heard. What kind of
    		protester starts shooting? =
    		It'd just give Earthlings a 
    		reason to wipe out everyone
    		opposing the taxes. This has
    		to be some kind of 
    		propaganda!
    
    
    Mebius: 	But i hear that the shooting 
    		really happened - they even 
    		have it on tape....
    
    Deckson: 	It's unnatural that they have 
    		all this evidence, isn't it? And 
    		take a close look at this 
    		picture; there's the UNSF LEV 
    		that was acting as riot 
    		control...
    
    Cage: 		?! That looks like the 
    		LEV that we fought at the 
    		orphanage...!
    
    Mebius: 	Bolozof's frame...He's Earth's 
    		worst export, a military man.
    		It's highly possible... He 
    		doesn't thing of Martians as 
    		being human, so he would do 
    		something like that.
    
    Deckson: 	Regardless of the instigator,
    		this cannot happen ever
    		again. There is another 
    		demonstration scheduled
    		today, so we will stand by at 
    		the scene.
    
    Warren: 	That may do more harm than
    		good. It would give the UNSF 
    		a reason to attack.
    
    Deckson: 	Of course. We'll wait in 
    		ambush. If nothing happens,
    		we will do nothing... But if by
    		chance something does
    		happen, we are the only ones 
    		who can stop it.
    
    Yukito: 	Where's John's team? Aren't 
    		they supported by Ms. 
    		O'Connell also?
    		
    Myona: 		Er... We have more friends?
    
    Mebius: 	Yes. There are a few groups
    		like ours, but not too many.
    		Recently, a number of them
    		lost resources to remain active.
    
    Yukito: 	What? You don't mean...
    
    Mebius: 	...They're gone. It happened 
    		two days ago. it wasn't 
    		picked up by the media.
    
    Yukito: 	Oh...
    
    Razma: 		Let's go, Boss. If nothing 
    		happens we just come home.
    		If something does, we try to
    		stop it. Right?
    		
    Deckson: 	That's right.
    
    Phil: 		Well, in that case I'll make a 
    		picnic basket! Can't fight 
    		when you're hungry! Oh, but
    		don't expect anything too
    		fancy, we only have 
    		ingredients for sandwiches...
    
    Semyl: 		Phil, this ain't no school trip.
    
    Mebius: 	I think it's a good idea. You
    		should eat when you can; it's
    		very important.
    
    Semyl: 		Why...
    
    Warren:		Food also has a relaxing
    		effect, which is a good thing.
    		Especially when everyone is
    		really nervous, like we are
    		now.
    
    Semyl: 		Oh... Phil, you...
    
    Phil: 		Er... This is the least I can 
    		do for everyone.
    
    Deckson: 	We don't have much time until
    		we depart. Start making
    		preparations. And Phil...
    		No cucumbers in my sandwich.
    
    ###### Scene 07: Opposing Tracks ######
    
    Sec. Officer A: We really got the short end 
    		of the stick. Why do we have
    		to do security at a protest?
    		
    Sec. Officer B: Stop whining. Work is work...
    		Besides, we have to make 
    		sure that it's not a replay of
    		last time.
    
    Sec. Officer A: I know. If we let the 
    		Earthling UNSF in on this,
    		they'll do whatever they want
    		and call it 'riot control'. Oh,
    		here comes the protest 
    		groups.
    
    
    Middle-aged man: Earth exploits its position and 
    		forces its tyranny upon us.
    		Are we going to allow this to
    		continue? No, we cannot! All
    		we ask for are basic rights 
    		that we deserve! What is
    		wrong with that? Are they 
    		trying to tell us that we are
    		not worth our human rights?
    		Friends and neighbors. It is 
    		time for us to come together 
    		as one. One by one, we may
    		not have enough power to
    		make a difference. That is 
    		why we want you to lend a
    		hand, and support the cause.
    		Please don't let our sad 
    		history repeat itself. Justice
    		on Mars!! Let us fight for a 
    		bright future for our
    		children!
    
    Local: 		Yeahhhh!!
    
    Local [woman]: 	The government doesn't care
    		about us! We have to look out 
    		for ourselves!!
    
    Razma: 		...They're really riled up. They 
    		could start a war right
    		here.
    
    Cage: 		Is it safe to be away from 
    		the frames?
    
    Razma: 		No worries. There are things 
    		you don't see unless you're 
    		on the ground... Probably.
    
    Cage: 		Probably?!... Hmm. Wonder
    		what happened...?
    
    Razma: 		Hey, Cage! Wait!
    
    Nadia: 		Why now.... Tsk....
    
    Little girl: 	<<pant>>...<<pant>>...
    
    Cage: 		? What happened?
    
    Nadia: 		Oh, er, I was walking and this
    		child collapsed suddenly.
    
    Razma: 		...?
    
    Nadia: 		...What?
    
    Razma: 		Nothing. It looks like a slight
    		case of amnesia to me. Some
    		rest in the shade should fix it,
    		Nadia.
    
    Nadia: 		How did you know my name?!
    
    Razma: 		It was engraved on the 
    		backside of that pendant. I
    		have great eyesight. You got
    		that from your boyfriend.
    		Recently... Am I right?
    
    Nadia: 		...heh heh. It was a gift, but 
    		it was a long time ago.
    
    Razma: 		Ah... So, you've been very
    		careful with it. Which means I
    		have no chance? You can
    		bring your little sister along
    		too....
    
    Nadia: 		Ha, ha.... You're quite amusing. 
    		I make it a point not to 
    		associate with little boys. And
    		also, we're not sisters. I was
    		just passing through.
    
    Razma: 		I'm sorry to hear that. Well,
    		you must be very kind. I 
    		could see the worry in your
    		eyes when you brought her
    		here.
    
    Nadia: 		Wha... That's.... Anyway, take
    		this child to a safe place
    		soon! Good day!
    		
    Cage: 		Aw...there she goes. You got
    		dumped.
    
    Razma: 		...
    
    Cage: 		Razma?
    
    Razma: 		...er...excuse me?
    
    Local [woman]: 	Hm? Yes?
    
    Razma: 		Would you look after her for
    		a second? I'm sure her 
    		parents will come for her
    		soon. Thanks!
    
    Local: 		What?!? He...hey!
    
    Razma: 		Come, Cage!
    
    Cage: 		Huh? Oh, OK..
    
    Nadia: 		...
    
    Bolozof: 	(Heh heh heh... Here we go...)
    
    Nadia: 		(It's time, I guess we'll begin.)
    
    Semyl: 		Whah?!?
    
    Phil: 		Gunshots!
    
    Sec. Officer A: Hey.... My LEV just got shot!
    
    Sec. Officer B: Stop overreacting. It's just a
    		gun. Handle it calmly.
    
    
    Nadia: 		Task completed...we will now 
    		join the main group.
    
    Bolozof: 	(heh heh ...perfect...)
    
    Sp. Task Soldier: Gunshots confirmed. In the
    		interest of public safety, we
    		will begin riot control.
    
    Sec. Officer B: An UNSF LEV? We are 
    		conducting an investigation
    		now....
    
    Sp. Task Soldier: If you get in our waym we'll
    		have to control you too. If
    		you don't want anything bad
    		to happen to you, stay out of 
    		it.
    
    Sec. Officer A: What?! This is under the 
    		jurisdiction of the UCM
    		Security Keeping Force!
    		Besides...
    
    	
    	Sp Task Soldier attacks Sec. Officer A
    
    
    Sec. Officer A: Aaaarrgh.... Why?!
    
    Sec. Officer B: You... Dirtbags!! This is
    		clearly a breach of protocol...
    
    Sp. task Soldier: What protocol? Acemos has no
    		obligation to act in
    		accordance with any
    		protocol.
    
    Sec. Officer B: Acemos?! Special Task Force 
    		Acemos? I get it... So the 
    		whole thing was a setup!
    
    Sp. Task Solder: Precisely.
    
    	
    	Sp. Task Soldier obliterates Sec. Officer B
    
    
    Sec. Officer B: Aaaaaarrrggghhhh!
    
    Deckson: 	(Even if they are Martians...
    		It's unbelievable that they 
    		would act against the
    		Security Officers, who are on
    		their side... They're acting as
    		though they've gone insane.)
    
    Sp. Task Soldier: Lieutenant. The obstacle has 
    		been removed.
    
    Bolozof: 	OK. Now rub out those 
    		dangerous rioters.
    		Completely.
    
    Sp. Task Solder: Yes sir!
    		You are all under arrest!
    		Don't move! You don't want tp
    		move another step!
    
    Local: 		Huh? Oh yeah? What will
    		happen if we do, eh?
    
    
    	Local mecha moves a step forward
    
    
    Deckson: 	Don't do it! Stop!
    
    	
    	Sp Task Force obliterates Local Mecha
    
    
    Local: 		Eeeeeeeeek!!
    
    Sp. Task Soldier: I instructed you specifically
    		not to move, but you
    		displayed blatant rebellious
    		spirit. We will have to end 
    		this riot by force!
    
    Deckson: 	Damn! How could they...!
    		They're planning to use the 
    		firing of the demonstrators
    		as an excuse to act against
    		them, while offering them no
    		protection! Prepare
    		yourselves! We're going to
    		protect the demonstrators!
    
    
    	BIS shows up in the battlefield
    
    
    Mebius: 	What a dirty plan... We can't 
    		let it happen!
    
    Semyl: 		Whew... It was pretty boring
    		just sitting there...
    
    Warren: 	Where is Bolozof?.... I don't 
    		see that machine of his 
    		anywhere...)
    
    Bolozof: 	(The Animus! ...Well, it's a good
    		opportunity to study BIS and
    		see just how good they really
    		are.)
    
    Deckson: 	Demonstrators on your LEVs
    		I am on your side! We will 
    		act as your shield! Flee to
    		the south!
    
    Local (woman): 	What? WHat is going on?....
    
    Local: 		Let's get out of here!!
    
    Local: 		I have no idea what's
    		happening... But let's do as 
    		they say while we still can!
    
    Deckson: 	OK, everyone, we are going to 
    		protect them as they head 
    		down south. Good luck!
    
    Yukito: 	Got it.
    
    Cage: 		Yes sir!
    
    Razma: 		(The person who fired the 
    		first shot looked an awful lot
    		like Nadia... Nah, it can't be...)
    
    COMMENCE BATTLE
    
    *  At the second turn of BIS, Pharsti talks about 
    *  the local server
    *  
    *  Pharsti: 	Cage, look at that.
    *  
    *  Cage: 	What?
    *  
    *  Pharsti: 	The local server is there.
    *  
    *  Cage: 	Local... Server?
    *  
    *  Pharsti: 	I believe that it is affiliated 
    *  		with NUT. If it is possible,
    *  		please transport the OF to
    *  		that point and stand by. It
    *  		may be possible to procure
    *  		various weapons and other
    *  		specialized modules by doing 
    *  		so.
    *  
    *  Cage: 	What do you mean?
    *  
    *  Pharsti: 	If everyone's OF, myself 
    *  		included, there is a capability 
    *  		to access secret data within
    *  		the server. Frowm now on, if
    *  		you see a server and the 
    *  		situation allows, please move
    *  		the OF above the server and
    *  		wait until the data is 
    *  		transferred... Once the data
    *  		is obtained, it is possible to
    *  		build new features into the 
    *  		OF.
    *  
    *  Cage: 	This is a bit complicated for
    *  		me... But you're saying that if 
    *  		the OF is placed on top of
    *  		that thing, you can get new 
    *  		functions?
    *  
    *  Pharsti: 	Precisely.
    *  
    *  Cage:	I understand, but at times 
    *  		like this I need to help 
    *  		people instead... I'll keep it in
    *  		mind.
    *  
    *  Pharsti: 	Yes, the decision is entirely
    *  		up to you.
    * 
    
    In case a citizen is killed by enemy LEVs, 
    these are the dialogues:
    
    Cage:	 	Oh god! I was too late... I am
     		so sorry...!
     
    Pharsti: 	Cage, now is not the time to
     		mourn.
    
    Cage:	 	I know that... But....
    
    ----------------------------------------------
    
    Cage:	 	Oh no!! How could this
    		happen?!
    
    Pharsti: 	Cage, it is not your fault.
     
    Cage: 	...
    
    ----------------------------------------------
     
    Cage:		Again...? I'm sorry there's
     		nothing I can do
    
    ----------------------------------------------
    
    Cage:		...no... Not again!!?
    
    ----------------------------------------------
    
    Cage: 		All down... How can that be?
    
    Pharsti: 	...
    
    
    When the locals succesfully escape,
    here are their dialogues:
    
    Local: 		I... I made it?!
     
    Local: 		Go! Run away!!
     
    Local:		We might be able to get out
     		in time... Thanks to the BIS 
     		folk, I guess...
    
    
    After saving (or failing to save) all the locals):
    
    Bolozof: 	...OK, I think I've seen
    		enough. Now it's my turn to
    		do what I want to do.
    
    Cage: 		It's that frame!
    
    Zephyrs: 	Did you get rid of the
    		demonstrators? Then there's 
    		nothing more for you to do.
    		Come back!
    
    Bolozof: 	If you want to live out the 
    		rest of your years in peace,
    		don't order me around. You've
    		got your own problems to
    		take care of.
    
    Zephyrs: 	...you...
    
    Bolozof: 	...Relax, I've got proof that
    		the demonstrators fired right
    		here... You want to get the
    		Animus back too, don't you?
    
    Zephyrs: 	....
    
    Bolozof: 	Nadia! Where are you?
    
    Nadia: 		Sir! I'm on Bizac. May I
    		have permission to leave?
    
    Bolozof: 	Ah. This is how you differ 
    		from the average Martian 
    		trash. My expectations of you
    		are high.
    
    Nadia: 		Thank you sir. Oh, and 
    		Lieutenant, this pendant...
    
    Bolozof: 	...Yes, what about it?
    
    Nadia: 		...Nothing, sir... I am
    		departing!
     (to Cage)	You shall return that frame.
    		It is wasted on you.
    
    Cage: 		A-aren't you...
    
    Nadia: 		...this voice... Are you the
    		young boy from earlier? I
    		see... You're the frame
    		runner of the Animus.... I
    		should have known...
    
    Cage: 		Why are you doing this...?
    		Aren't you a Martian 
    		yourself?!
    
    Nadia: 		So what? I am different from
    		you! I have no interest in
    		wallowing in pity with
    		weaklings! I am Nadia Candido, 
    		Special Task Force Acemos! If 
    		you do not return the
    		machine, I will take it from
    		you by force!
    
    Bolozof: 	...Now, shall we take care of
    		the unfinished business from
    		our last meeting?
    
    COMMENCE BATTLE
    
    When Nadia loses:
    
    Nadia: 		I've lost...?? Add made a fool
    		of myself in from of Mr.
    		Bolozof....?!
    
    Bolozof: 	Nadia, you're tired. Retreat
    		now, you understand?
    
    Nadia: 		I'm sorry... I am leaving now!
    
    When Cage starts to attack Bolozof:
    
    Bolozof: 	Heh heh heh... You Martians
    		are fun to play with. You've
    		been allowed to live until this
    		day just for me, so I expect 
    		to be entertained a little bit
    		more. Come on, let's see it.
    		Give me your best shot! I'll 
    		destroy all of you!
    
    Cage: 		Fun to play with? People are
    		dying!! What are you talking
    		about!?!?
    
    When Bolozof is weakened:
    
    Bolozof: 	Hah! What's wrong? I'm still
    		alive.
    
    Cage: 		What is wrong with this guy?
    
    Deckson: 	Cage, any further engagement
    		with them is pointless.
    		Retreat! Close your eyes!
    
    Cage: 		Huh? Uh, yes sir!
    
    Bolozof: 	What are they doing?!
    
    Deckson throws a smokescreen (?) and BIS escapes
    
    Bolozof: 	They ran away? ...
    		Heh heh ....
    		Heh heh heh...
    		Haaahahahahah!!! They think 
    		that... That they've spared
    		me? ...Ha ha ha ha......

    Deckson: 	...So it is the Earthlings 
    		behind all this. This Nadia 
    		lady from Acemos, she's the
    		one who fired and posed as a
    		demonstrator?
    
    Razma: 		Yes, I'm sure of it.
    
    Warren: 	UNSF Special Task Force
    		Acemos... I've heard of them.
    		They're an elitist group of
    		racists... This could be
    		trouble.
    
    Cage: 		The general guy that we 
    		fought before... He seems 
    		dangerous.
    
    Mebius: 	...You mean Bolozof Velasgo.
    		He probably joined the armed
    		forces so he could be violent
    		legally. He's the most 
    		dangerous man on Earth. I 
    		had no idea he'd joined
    		Acemos...
    
    Warren: 	It seems Zephyrs is the 
    		power behind Acemos... That's 
    		quite obvious. Their erratic,
    		careless actions today... He 
    		must be quite confident in his
    		information sources.
    
    Deckson: 	It may be time for us to take
    		action before they act 
    		against us.
    
    Ares: 		But how? Do you have any
    		ideas as to what we can do?
    
    Deckson: 	Well, I've been speaking with
    		Ms. O'Connell about this...
    
    Razma: 		Boss. I may be on to 
    		something. Let me pursue it.
    
    Deckson: 	Of course, look into it.
    
    Razma: 		Great, I'll be back in a little
    		while.
    
    Razma walks out of the room
    
    Cage: 		Today was tough, wasn't it,
    		Myona?
    
    Myona: 		Yes... How can those
    		Earthlings do such terrible 
    		things to the Martians?
    
    Cage: 		...I don't understand it 
    		either.
    
    Ares: 		Humankind succeeded in
    		colonizing the vast territory 
    		of space... But like the 
    		vacancy they've claimed as
    		territory, their hearts have
    		become empty too.
    
    Cage: 		But Ares... That's just so...
    
    Ares: 		I know, it's wrong.... But the
    		fact of the matter is that 
    		those living on Mars and on
    		Jupiter are called 'Enders'
    		and are looked down upon....
    		You'll understand eventually.
    
    Cage: 		Ares...
    
    Ares: 		Well, I'm really tired today...
    		I'm going back to my room.
    		See you later, Cage.
    
    Ares walks out of the room.
    
    Cage: 		... The fact of the matter...
    		Hmm...
    
    Myona: 		(.......)
    
    Phil: 		Oh.....Miss Myona! If you would 
    		like, I was thinking that

    Razma: 		Phew... I'm back.
    
    Semyl: 		You back already?!? Jeez, 
    		that was quick.
    
    Razma: 		Never mind that, look at this 
    		photograph. It's pretty
    		low-resolution, but...
    
    In the picture, a building is marked in the middle.
    
    Warren: 	...Where did you get this?
    		There seems to be something
    		there... is this what you were
    		talking about earlier?
    		
    Razma: 		Well, how about this picture?
    
    Another picture of the building with a LEV
    
    Warren: 	...This is.... Bolozof's new machine!
    
    Ares: 		Wasn't it called... Bizac?
    
    Razma: 		And look at this one.
    
    Phil: 		The frame in production...
    		This is not an LEV! Can it
    		be.... An OF?!?
    
    Razma: 		Bingo. I think this is Zephyrs'
    		secret factory.
    
    Mebius: 	That Bizac-frame, it did look 
    		different from an LEV. If it's
    		been built with OF technology
    		- that is, if it includes
    		metatron - that explains
    		everything....
    
    Cage: 		Meta...tron. That's the 
    		precious material that they
    		use in the catapults at the
    		spaceports, right?
    
    Razma: 		I figure the Martian
    		government is probably doing 
    		all it can to keep it all a
    		secret, but they wouldn't 
    		have them together with the
    		LEVs. I think that they would
    		have to have a special place
    		where they dealt with all the
    		OF-related matters.
    
    Deckson: 	That's true. If they're hiding 
    		their OF research, it would 
    		make sense that they would
    		have their own private
    		facility.
    
    Mebius: 	Then it's possible that the 
    		Black Frame that sank the 
    		Bonaparte was constructed
    		there too?
    
    Myona: 		And... perhaps there was
    		some sort of unexpected
    		accident during testing, and
    		they lost control... And it hit 
    		Bonaparte...
    
    Cage: 		That would mean that Zephyrs
    		and his men were behind that
    		accident...
    
    Ares: 		It's possible.
    
    
    Semyl: 		And? How'd you find this
    		joint?
    
    Razma: 		I regret to inform you that's
    		an industry secret.
    
    Semyl: 		Right, an industry secret...
    		Like slappin' a tracer on a
    		girl, stalkin' her, and plannin'
    		on inviting her out to 
    		dinner?
    
    Razma: 		Yeah, yeah... You know how
    		women are, you convince them
    		it's destiny and..
    		How...how did you know about
    		that?!?
    
    Semyl: 		I knew it!
    
    Razma: 		Dang... That was a trick?
    
    Semyl: 		<<sigh>> You know, you are
    		so transparent. Myona, what
    		do you think of guys who do
    		things like this?
    
    Myona: 		......
    
    Razma: 		(Uh-oh... Don't look at me like
    		that!!)
    
    Myona: 		......
    
    Razma: 		(Uh-oh... Don't look at me like
    		that!!)
    
    Myona: 		... I think it sucks.
    
    Razma: 		(Ouch!)
    
    Razma: 		No! It's not like that! ...Er...
    
    Mebius: 	OK. Enough of that. So, is
    		that how you came across
    		the information
    
    Razma: 		Yeah. She was suspiciously
    		alert for a civilian. She told 
    		us to 'take the child to a
    		safe place' ...as if she knew 
    		what was going to happen.
    
    Cage: 		Wow... I didn't notice that at
    		all....
    
    Myona: 		Oh... I understand now.... I'm 
    		sorry, Razma...
    
    Razma: 		Heh, heh... It's no big deal.
    
    Cage: 		But.... She said that as she
    		was leaving. You didn't have
    		time to put the tracer on her
    		after she said that...
    
    Myona: 		Um, Razma...
    
    Razma: 		Oh... Ha haha hah!!..... Hey, 
    		don't sweat the small stuff!!
    
    Mebius: 	That's so typical of you,
    		Razma... But in this case, you 
    		were able to obtain
    		information because you did
    		that, so we can't complain....
    		So what are we going to do?
    		Should we wait until they 
    		make a move?
    
    Yukito: 	You sound as though you
    		want to move on it
    		immediately....?
    
    Mebius: 	Well, are you against that?
    
    Yukito: 	That depends on our 
    		strategy. This facility belongs
    		to the Ryan Corporation. I'm
    		sure their security system 
    		exceeds that of most military
    		facilities... And I'm sure their
    		LEVs do also.
    
    Myona: 		Ryan Corporation? What's
    		that?
    
    Phil: 		It comes next to NUT, 
    		Nereidum Universal 
    		Technology, a manufacturer.
    
    		Of course, even though 
    		they're second in the
    		industry, they're nowhere
    		close to NUT - NUT has the
    		power to build its own colony
    		with no help from anyone.
    
    Myona: 		Wow.
    
    Deckson: 	...Hmmm... Ryan, eh? I can see
    		how OF manufacturing would 
    		be attractive to him, to beat
    		their competition. It would
    		make sense if they had 
    		helped with the construction
    		of the Bizac too.
    
    Ares: 		I think we should sneak in.
    
    Warren: 	Why?
    
    Ares: 		Well... the secret production 
    		of military weapons has been
    		proven by the information
    		supplied by Razma. All we 
    		need to prove now is the 
    		existence of Earthlings within
    		the facility, and there will be
    		enough to indict Zephjyrs for
    		his involvement. If all goes
    		well, we may also be able to 
    		obtain data from the local 
    		server, and that is the most
    		definitive evidence that we  
    		can lay our hands on.
    
    Warren: 	...I agree completely with
    		your plan. But what's the 
    		hurry?
    
    Ares: 		Never put off until tomorrow
    		what can be done today. Is it
    		such a bad thing?
    
    Warren: 	......
    
    Deckson: 	It's true, this may be a good
    		opportunity to take action.
    		Warren, if we don't move now,
    		we may end up having to wait
    		until they make their next
    		move, in which case we'll
    		allow something to happen.
    
    Warren: 	...You're right. I understand. 
    		We must build our strategy 
    		very carefully.
    
    Robin enters the room
    
    Robin: 		<<sigh>> So now you're going 
    		to go after Zephyrs. 
    		Why didn't I know about
    		this?
    
    Deckson: 	Ms. O'Connell... I am about to
    		discuss this with you. I
    		had no intention of keeping
    		this a secret from you...
    
    Robin:		He's a very powerful man. Do
    		you understand that this 
    		could be risky for me too?
    
    Deckson: 	Well....
    
    Robin: 		....<<giggle>> I'm only joking.
    		But it wouldn't hurt you to
    		worry about me sometimes
    		too, you know? I work hard
    		too.
    
    Deckson: 	Yes... Thank you.
    
    Twede: 		...I have prepared a blueprint
    		of the area with possible
    		invasion routes, for your
    		review.
    
    Razma: 		No way! When?!? We just
    		started talking ahout it right
    		now!?
    
    Twede: 		...I will take care of the 
    		security problem. Pelase, just
    		look out for the Security
    		LEVs.
    
    Razma: 		Um, heLLO-? Do you copy??
    
    Twede: 		...Good luck. I will pray for
    		your safety.
    
    Robin: 		I'm, sorry... Please don't take
    		it personally.
    
    Semyl: 		You got no presence, is why.
    
    A crash sound (Razma probably kicked Semyl)
    
    Semyl: 		OW! Boy, I'm gonna make you
    		cry!
    
    Razma: 		You need to learn to shut it!
    
    Semyl: 		<<gasp>> That's it!
    
    Razma: 		Hah! Show me what you got!!
    
    Mebius: 	Well, shall we get going?
    
    Cage: 		Yes..
    
    
    ##### SCENE 08: Darkness Dyed by Darkness #####
    
    Deckson: 	...Listen. Twede said that he
    		would take care of the
    		security system, so we don't
    		need to worry about cameras
    		or sensors - but even he 
    		can't control human eyes.
    		Beware of the Security LEVs 
    		while you go about your
    		business.
    
    Razma: 		Well, if Twede is going to 
    		hack into the system so that
    		Security ad the facility can't
    		communicate, why don't we
    		just take them all down at
    		once?
    
    Mebius: 	ANd make a big commotion so
    		Security does show up?
    
    Warren: 	...Not a good move. It's best
    		if nobody finds out about
    		this. Security trusts its
    		sensors, so I don't think 
    		there will be too many 
    		Security LEVs on site. We
    		should think of it as a 
    		clandestine operation.
    
    Razma: 		Tsk. Fine.
    
    Yukito: 	Get within 3 squares of an
    		enemy LEV and it's war on
    		the spot. Be careful. If a
    		Security LEV finds you, you
    		may be able to get out of it
    		if you beat it immediately....
    
    Cage: 		3 squares?
    
    Yukito: 	Don't worry about it. Anyway,
    		we'll have to find an entrance 
    		first. Then Phil and Ares will
    		go in on the Blade. Is that 
    		okay with everyone?
    
    Deckson: 	That's fine. There are 5 
    		routes. You need to figure 
    		out which one will lead to the
    		inside of the facility.
    
    Cage: 		So there's a way in out of 
    		those choices, and we go and
    		check each one?
    
    Deckson: 	Correct. Don't get caught, 
    		now!
    
    Cage: 		Yes sir!
    
    Razma: 		...Why is it Phil and Ares?
    
    Mebius: 	...In this group, those two
    		are best with that kind of
    		stuff.
    
    Cage: 		What kind of stuff?
    
    Mebius: 	Well, computer stuff...
    		hacking.
    
    Ares: 		It's almost time.
    
    Myona: 		Ares, Phil - be careful!
    
    Ares: 		Yeah.
    
    Phil: 		Yes... I-I will! You can leave
    		it to me!
    
    Deckson: 	OK, is everybody ready? I will 
    		stay here and give you 
    		instructions... Let me know
    		once you are inside.
    		
    Nadia: 		...strange...
    
    Sp. Task Soldier: Is something the matter?
    
    Nadia: 		Are the sensors functioning
    		normally? Something feels
    		off... Is it just me?
    
    Sp. Task Soldier: All functions are normal.
    		Perhaps you are tired. May I
    		suggest that you take a
    		rest?
    
    Nadia: 		Why are you bothered by my
    		being here?
    
    Sp. Task Soldier: No. Far from it, I'm honored!
    		If it were up to me, I would
    		be with you like this for all
    		eternity!
    
    Nadia: 		...What a strange man - not 
    		that I dislike you.
    
    Sp. Task Soldier: Thank you. Normally, I would
    		take that as a cue to flirt, 
    		but I shall refrain from such
    		action for now. So that you
    		might rest, I will continue
    		with this Security post,
    		although I will be very
    		lonely.
    		
    Nadia: 		Heh... OK, fine. I'm going to
    		take a break, you take care
    		of everything whyile I'm away.
    
    Sp. Task Soldier: Phew... That was close. Now, 
    		where were we?
    
    The Sp. Task Soldier was actually Twede!
    
    Twede: 		I've sent false data to the
    		remaining cameras and
    		sensors, communication has
    		been cut off, and the 
    		arrangements are complete.
    
    		(Everything's done on time. 
    		I've done my part, now please
    		do yours and do it well...)
    
    Semyl: 		...You best behave yourself
    		today! Don't you go lookin'
    		for that Nadia chick!
    
    Razma: 		Not an issue. I'm very
    		reliable when need be... Heh 
    		heh.
    
    Semyl: 		Unconvincing, at best.
    
    Warren: 	...it's time. Let's go.
    
    
    Sp. Task Soldier: Terrorists?! Security!
    		Invasion!! HEY! Respond!....
    		Tsk.... Communication's been
    		cut off. They'll pay for this...
    
    Deckson: Get him!
    
    Deckson: 	I don't think that's the one.
    		Check the others!
    
    Deckson: 	That's it, Phil!
    
    Phil: 		Ares! I think that's it over 
    		there!
    
    Ares: 		OK. Let's proceed carefully so
    		they don't see us.
    
    Phil: 		Yessss!
    
    Ares: 		OK... We're going in!
    
    Deckson: 	The first stage of the plan
    		has been completed. Everyone, 
    		retreat.
    
    Cage: 		Yes sir!

    Deckson: 	Yes... I hope the rest goes

    Razma: 		Since there's time until our
    		next move, I'd like to take a 
    		short nap.

    Nadia: 		...Excuse me, sir.
    
    Bolozof: 	Nadia. What happened?
    
    Nadia: 		You were resting. I'm very
    		sorry, I will come again
    		another time.
    
    Bolozof: 	I don't mind. What do you need?
    
    Nadia: 		Noth... well, er... How are you
    		feeling?
    
    Bolozof: 	You want to know? Why don't 
    		you examine me for
    		yourself?
    
    Nadia: 		N-no! I, er...
    
    Bolozof: 	What? You don't like me 
    		anymore? Come here.
    
    Nadia: 		.....
    
    Bolozof: 	Nadia. Don't look at me like
    		that.
    
    Nadia: 		...Are we doing the right
    		thing? Mars has reached its
    		limits. If things continue in
    		this way, a full-fledged war
    		may break out any day now.
    
    Bolozof: 	So what? That would make it 
    		easier to solve territorial 
    		problems anyway. There is no
    		need for weeds on this
    		land.... Are you worried about
    		your fellow Martians?
    
    Nadia: 		N-no. I rid myself of such 
    		sentiment the day I pledged 
    		my life to you... However, I
    		think that the progression of 
    		these battles...
    
    Bolozof: 	There's no such thing as a
    		bloodless revolution. Besides, 
    		don't you think that it's time
    		to bear the hardships... For 
    		our future?
    
    Nadia: 		Our...future?
    
    Bolozof: 	Oh... Speaking of which, I 
    		have something for you.
    
    Nadia: 		...An Earth-bound ticket?! You
    		remembered our promise!
    
    Bolozof: 	Once things settle down a 
    		little bit, let's go together.
    		You'll be reborn as a true
    		Earthling worthy of me.
    
    Nadia: 		Thank you! I don't know what
    		to say... I...
    
    Bolozof: 	Are you going to stand there
    		forever? Come over here.
    
    Nadia: 		Y-yes.
    
    Bolozof: 	...Heh heh heh...

    Nadia: 		Yes, I hear you.
    
    Bolozof: 	I am getting out of here. You

    COMMENCE BATTLE
    
    -after a few turns-
    
    Pharsti: 	...Cage. There is abnormal
    		energy emanating from the
    		basement ahead. It is heat
    		energy.
    
    Cage: 		Does that mean... This facility
    		is going to explode?
    
    Pharsti: 	Affirmative. 10 minutes.
    		Considering the Blade's speed,
    		we will have reached the
    		safety limit on time.
    
    Cage: 		What happens if we exceed 
    		the limit?
    
    Pharsti: 	Every person here will be 
    		burned alive by the ehat from
    		the explosion. In other
    		words....
    
    Cage: 		OK, that's all I needed to 
    		hear. Thank you... So what
    		you're saying is that we have
    		to leave before the limit is
    		up.
    
    Pharsti: 	Correct.
    
    Nadia: 		(...What was that! Can it be...
    		That Bolozof is abandoning
    		me? ...No... No, he wouldn't do
    		that.)
    
    		So... It's them!! How far are
    		they planning to push me? I
    		will not let them get away
    		with this! Never!!
    
    -After a few more turns-
    
    Pharsti: 	Cage, 5 minutes and counting
    		until the explosion at the
    		facility.
    
    Cage: 		Already?!? We have to hurry!
    
    Pharsti: 	Damage to the frame has
    		exceeded 50%.
    
    Cage: 		What?! Already?!
    
    Pharsti: 	Your maneuvering capabilities
    		leave much to be desired.
    
    Cage: 		...
    
    Pharsti: 	But lately, you have developed
    		a sharp instinct. it's as if
    		you have eyes in the back of
    		your head....
    
    Cage: 		Huh? Oh, well actually... I was 
    		told once after a physical
    		that I have above-average
    		spatial skills because I was
    		born in space.
    
    Pharsti: 	Born in space... In a 
    		spaceship?
    
    Cage: 		Yeah... But now is not the 
    		time to talk about it. I'll tell
    		you all about it some other
    		time.
    
    -when Blade reaches the bottom-
    
    Ares: 		Phew... Lucky us.
    
    Phil: 		We are evacuating!
    
    Cage: 		Good! Let's go!

    		hear me? This facility will
    		explode very soon. Please
    		evacuate the compound!
    
    Nadia: 		.....
    
    Cage: 		Nadia! You must get out of 
    		here!
    
    Nadia: 		...Go. I've lost. Go wherever
    		you are going, I don't care!
    
    Cage: 		Are you going to stay here?
    		This whole place is going to
    		explode!
    
    Nadia: 		This is something I brought
    		upon myself... Leave me alone, 
    		and worry about yourself.
    
    Cage: 		...Pharsti.
    
    Pharsti: 	Roger.
    
    Nadia: 		Wha-what are you doing?!
    
    Cage: 		I'm takking you out with me!

    Razma: 		Holy moley! That was CLOSE!
    		
    Cage: 		That was really dangerous!
    
    Semyl:		Wait... Who was that woman
    		you saved, Cage? There are
    		things that need to be taken
    		care of, and we need to 
    		capture her...
    		
    Cage:		Hunh?!
    
    Semyl:		No, not 'hunh?!'. I'm saying,
    		where is the hostage?
    			
    Cage: 		Well, we said good-bye a
    		while ago...
    		
    Yukito:		You're KIDDING, right?
    
    Cage:		Well, now that you mention it,
    		she was looking at me real
    		funny...
    		
    Razma:		Hah! That's funny! Vintage
    		Cage!
    		
    Semyl: 		Hey! It's not funny!
    
    Deckson:	What's done is done. Besides,
    		we've got the data. We can
    		call today a success, I think.
    		
    Warren:		...Ares. How did it go?
    
    Ares:		Heh. Perfectly. It was almost 
    		too perfect...
    		
    Warren:		.....
    
    Deckson: 	At any rate, there's no point
    		in sticking around here. Let's 
    		go home.
    		
    Phil:		Ms. Myona! I tried really
    		hard....
    		
    Myona: 		Cage... You let her go?
    
    Cage:		Yeah... Was that really bad?
    
    Myona: 		No, I think it was good. I',
    		sure she's changed her mind
    		about a lot of things now.
    		
    Cage: 		You think so? That would be
    		nice...
    		
    Phil:		.......
    
    Ares:		Phil... Don't make that face. At
    		the very least, I need you
    		around.
    		
    Phil:		Ares... Thank you.
    
    Ares:		(heh heh...)
    
    BIS heads to their hideout
    
    Meanwhile, at the factory site
    
    Nadia: 		You... This humiliation...
    		(...Why... Why am I still alive?
    		I promised that I would die
    		before I let them go!

    Razma:		<<yawn>> I am so bored...
    
    Cage enters
    
    Cage:		Razma? Are you alone? Where
    		is everybody else?
    		
    Razma: 		Warren and Yukito went to go
    		work out at the gym. Semyl
    		said she was going to buy
    		Myona some clothes, so the
    		two of them and Mebius went
    		shopping for girlie stuff.
    		
    Cage: 		Hm. Where's Ares?
    
    Razma:		Probably the hangar. He said
    		something about analyzing the
    		data he got at the facility.
    		
    Cage: 		But I thought the only
    		equipment they had there was
    		maintenance tools for LEVs
    		and OFs.
    		
    Razma:		Nope. I hear Ms. O'Connell got
    		her hands on a new metatron
    		computer.
    		
    Cage:		Hmmm....
    
    Razma:		OK, I'm bored anyway. I'm
    		going to go and be a 
    		nuisance. I can look at the
    		frames while I'm there too.
    		
    Razma exits
    
    Cage:		No! Razma! You shouldn't!
    		Wait!!

    Ares: 		...And you came to be a 
    		nuisance also?
    		
    Cage:		Ha ha, ha ha ha....
    
    Robin:		Oh, you two! Did you come to
    		help out?
    		
    Razma:		No, we're here to be a
    		nuisance.
    		
    Robin:		Oh. I see.
    
    Ares:		...For Pete's sake....
    
    Cage:		So, Ares, what did you find?
    
    Ares:		Absolutely nothing... But it's
    		not because of the computer
    		that Robin brought for me. In
    		fact, it's not easy to have
    		resources like this. I'd love
    		to know where to find these
    		things.
    		
    Robin:		Ares. Women have lots of
    		secrets.
    		
    Ares:		Aha. Secrets. It must be
    		difficult to have so many of
    		them.
    		
    Robin:		...
    
    Ares:		But since you were so kind
    		as to prepare all these tools,
    		I will do what I can, even
    		though it may take a while...
    		
    Pharsti:	I'm very sorry to interrupt,
    		but may I give it a try?
    		
    Ares:		(What?!?!)
    
    Cage:		What?!? You know how??
    
    Pharsti: 	Affirmative.
    
    Ares:		...This is interesting. She may
    		be able to get better results
    		than any of us.
    		
    Robin: 		I like that. Please do.
    
    Pharsti:	Would that be okay with you,
    		Cage?
    		
    Cage:		Of course. Please!
    
    Pharsti:	Understood.
    
    Ares:		(...Actually, it's not such a bad
    		idea... Heh heh... heh heh

    Zephyrs:	...I will get it back. It's 
    		important to me too. How 
    		many times must I explain
    		this to you?
    		
    Ryan:		Please. I have made my
    		meager contribution also. 'It 
    		was taken' is simply not
    		enough.
    		
    Zephyrs:	Stop worrying. If you work
    		with us, there's nothign that
    		NUT can do to stop you. I will
    		find it soon.
    		
    Ryan:		...Will you actually 'get it
    		back,' or 'find it'? I hate to
    		say it, but... there are those
    		who doubt you. They say that
    		it was in fact no 'accident,'
    		and that you're trying to sell
    		the Animus elsewhere...
    		
    Zephyrs:	Who are you talking to? It
    		would be all too easy to make
    		your company disappear.
    		
    Ryan:		Before, that threat may have
    		worked... Face the facts. I 
    		don't mind cooperating. But I
    		don't owe you anything. I can
    		tolerate your unpleasant
    		experiments only because it
    		can make me profit.... At least
    		for the time being.
    		
    Zephyrs:	...Are you threatening me?
    
    Ryan:		Threatening? Hardly. I'm
    		warning you.
    		
    Zephyrs:	.....
    
    Ryan:		We will take care of the
    		incident at the factory. Is
    		that okay with you?
    		
    Zephyrs: 	...Yes... please.
    
    Ryan: 		Smart business. One would
    		want to keep it that way until
    		the very end. Excuse me.
    		
    Ryan exits
    
    Zephyrs:	...
    		(I have no choice... It's risky,
    		but it must be done. I'll have

    Cage: 		...And??
    
    Pharsti:	Hee, hee, the data is very
    		cute.
    		
    Cage:		The data... Cute?!
    
    Pharsti:	Yes. It was all wrapped up in
    		a pretty package so as to
    		conceal its contents.
    		
    Robin:		Interesting metaphor....
    
    Ares: 		And what did you find?
    
    Pharsti:	Well, I undid the ribbon... and
    		removed the wrapping
    		carefully so as not to rip
    		anything. I'll transfer the 
    		files now.
    		
    Phil:		Oh...
    
    Ares:		This is really something. It's
    		not everything, but it's
    		completely deciphered.
    		
    Robin:		In this short amount of 
    		time...
    		
    Deckson:	...Hm? What is everybody 
    		doing here?
    		
    Razma:		Breaking the code.
    
    Phil:		This here...
    
    Deckson:	Metatron linkage I... D0?
    		Subject 1179 F-15...?
    		
    Razma:		Hey, there's more over here.
    		Impulse transmitter F-6x,
    		M-12.... I don't get it!
    		
    Ares:		I think 'Subject' refers to a 
    		person. So F and M would be
    		the sex, and the numbers	
    		would be the age. M-12 would
    		be a 12-year-old male...
    		
    Robin:		...It looks like some sort of 
    		experiment. X probably means
    		that the subject died...
    		
    Cage:		But... How... They're mostly
    		children!
    		
    Ares:		...According to this, the data
    		goes back 10 years. The
    		compatibility of the human
    		brain and metatron... There's 
    		a plan to implant a human
    		brain directly into the
    		machines.
    		
    Decson: 	What's this?? An I.D.O. System
    		record of accidents and
    		deaths?! And this OF is the
    		culprit?
    		
    Cage:		Ares....
    
    Ares:		Yes, I'm sure of it. That's the
    		one that attacked the
    		Bonaparte. I guess that
    		wasn't the only accident it's 
    		caused.
    		
    Deckson:	Things are starting to make
    		sense. But we still need proof 
    		that this frame is somehow
    		affiliated with Zephyrs.
    		We are so close...
    		
    Cage:		The truth is about to be
    		revealed... ALl their evil
    		deeds... Our innocence...
    		Pharsti! Is there any more?
    		
    Pharsti:	This is all the data I have
    		been able to decode. The rest
    		of the data turns into a
    		'suicide virus' and will delete 
    		itself when opened without
    		the proper password. I would
    		not recommend attempting to
    		analyze the rest of the data
    		without the password.
    		
    Robin:		...I see... So we have to find
    		a way to find that password.
    		
    Twede:		...Excuse me.
    
    Razma:		<<gasp>> Again?!
    
    Twede:		...Ms. O'Connell. Please take a 
    		look at this.
    		
    Anchor:		...And now, a news update. 
    		The violent terrorist group
    		that has been on a rampage
    		as of late bombed a 
    		civilian-owned factory last
    		night. UNSF Lieutenant
    		Bolozof Velasgo was able to
    		capture some members from
    		this group, known as BIS, a
    		little while ago.
    		
    Deckson:	What?!?
    
    Anchor:		I repeat. Just now... what?
    		Live feed? Excuse me. There
    		has been a last-minute 
    		change. We have a live 
    		broadcast from the scene.
    
    Bolozof:	...A word to the terrorists. 
    		We have reached the limits of
    		our tolerance for you. From
    		now on, your immoral
    		activities will be met with
    		weapons. This is not a threat.
    		We will do whatever it takes 
    		to prevent tragedies like this
    		from happening again. Today
    		at noon, we will hold a public
    		hearing for the terrorists
    		who have been captured!
    	
    Ares:		...I've never seen any of 
    		those people who were
    		captured...
    		
    Robin:		...They have nothing to do
    		with us. They have 
    		abducted random people to
    		lure us to them.
    		
    Cage: 		Oh, no!!
    
    Twede:		...That isn't the only problem.
    		Please continue watching.
    		
    Razma:		There's Sis = and Myona!
    		Even Semyl!!
    		
    Deckson:	They... They found out?!
    
    Ares:		If they knew that they were
    		BIS members, I doubt they
    		would do it like this. I think
    		it must have been a 
    		coincidence... but I guess we
    		don't really know. I can't
    		imagine that they would
    		actually hold a 'hearing.' It's
    		probably more like immediate
    		execution.
    		
    Razma:		Those dirtbags....
    
    Cage:		Oh! Ra-Razma! This person
    		here... is Nadia!!
    		
    Razma:		They're even using their own
    		people.... Are they insane?
    		
    Deckson:	Ms. O'Connell, we are going to
    		go and do something about 
    		this. Do you mind?
    		
    Twede:		Ms. O'Connell, I would strongly
    		advise against taking such
    		action. It is impossible to
    		save them, and they would
    		most certainly be captured.
    		
    Deckson:	Twede....
    
    Robin:		...So.... What do you suggest
    		we do?
    		
    Twede:		If we do that, they are not
    		going to let it go.... At the
    		very least, the humans on
    		Mars are going to be
    		angered, and the politics on
    		Earth will encounter serious
    		problems as well... Even if we 
    		don't go out of our way to
    		expose ourselves to danger,
    		the situation should improve
    		for us. Not doing anything is
    		the best strategy - it yields
    		the fewest victims.
    		
    Robin:		The fewest victims... I see
    		your point, and I think that
    		is a sound judgement...
    		
    Cage:		Ms. Robin?!?!
    
    Razma:		How is abandoning you own
    		friends 'the best strategy'?
    		I'm going, even if I have to
    		do it alone. And don't stop
    		me!
    		
    Robin:		But, Twede, we don't want ANY
    		victims. Peace earned at the
    		price of any victim will only
    		breed more victims in the 
    		future.
    		
    Cage:		So...
    
    Robin:		Go ahead.
    
    Twede:		Ms. O'Connell!!
    
    Deckson:	Ms. O'Connell... Thank you!
    
    Ares:		Thank you! We're going.
    
    Robin:		But I'm only going to let you
    		go under one condition. All of
    		you must come back safely.
    		Can you promise me that?
    		
    Cage:		...Yes! We promise!!
    
    Razma:		Of course! You just watch!!
    
    Deckson:	Come on, everyone... Let's 
    		hurry!
    		
    Robin: 		(Good luck, everybody... Be
    		safe...)
    		
    Twede:		You know that what I said
    		reflected the wishes of the
    		higher-ups.... Do you realize
    		what a big responsibility you
    		are taking on?
    	
    Robin:		I'm aware of it.
    
    Twede:		...
    		...Well, then. In that case. I
    		have nothing to add....

    		these children... I owe
    		Deckson an apology.
    		
    Semyl:		Myona! Can you hear me?
    		Don't you give up on me! I
    		know that idiot is gonna come
    		get us!
    
    Myona:		Semmy.... I'm so sorry. If I 
    		hadn't gotten caught, this
    		wouldn't have happened...
    		
    Semyl:		That's just dumb! Come on,
    		grumpy, they're gonna come
    		get us! You can't trust him
    		as far as you can throw him, 
    		usually, but in crisis
    		situations, that idiot is pretty
    		reliable. So I'm tellin' ya,
    		don't sweat it.
    		
    Nadia:		<<snicker>> ...It's not that
    		simple. In military, if
    		someone were to command his
    		troops to save their men in
    		this situation... he would lose
    		his position.
    		
    Mebius:		Is that...?
    
    Semyl:		Say that again, you little
    		punk! When help arrives, we'll
    		leave you here!
    		
    Nadia:		I don't care... I plan to die
    		here. I coudn't look at him
    		now.
    		
    Bizac S appears
    
    Bolozof:	How righteous.
    
    Nadia:		Lieutenant...  I apologize
    		deeply for what has
    		happened. It is my
    		responsibility....
    		
    Mebius:		That was Bolozof! I knew it...
    		So she's Nadia?
    		
    Myona:		Oh!
    
    Semyl:		Wha?
    
    MebiusL		...I guess they don't know 
    		who we are...
    		
    Bolozof:	...That pendant... I remember
    		now. You still have it.
    		
    Nadia:		Yes! I am so glad that you
    		remembered... I... I was...
    		very happy.
    		
    red-haired girl:Ew! That is so ugly! Hey,
    		please don't every give me
    		something like that.
    		
    Nadia:		Who the...! What are you
    		doing?! Get away from
    		Lieutenant Bolozof
    		immediately!!
    
    red-haired:	Oh please! My job is to stay
    		with Mr. Bolozof and take
    		good care of him.
    		I had to take the place of
    		some stupid, useless
    		assistant... Oops, I guess that
    		would be you!
    		
    Bolozof:	Nadia... Don't ever even utter
    		my name with that filthy
    		mouth of yours again.
    		
    Nadia:		...What?! I'll happily agree to
    		execution. I am not afraid of
    		death!
    		So... so... Look at me until the
    		very end... Don't dislike...
    		me....
    		
    Bolozof:	...I'm tired of you. I also 
    		have no use for failures.
    		
    Nadia:		How...
    
    red-haired:	Hey, you're a MARTIAN, right?
    		I mean, gross! I can't believe
    		that Mr. Bolozof even let you
    		work next to him!
    		
    Semyl:		(What?!?!)
    
    red-haired:	Oh, well, that's over. He'll
    		forget about you soon--my
    		technique is that good. Even
    		last night....
    		
    Nadia:		Sh-shut up!! That's a lie!!!
    		Please, please say it's all a
    		lie!!
    
    Bolozof:	...Amante, here, have this. It's
    		a ticket to Earth... Do what 
    		you like with it:
    		
    Nadia:		That's...!!
    
    red-haired girl's name was revealed by Bolozof, Amante
    
    Amante:		But I hate traveling. Can I
    		tear it up?
    		
    Bolozof:	Do as you like.
    
    Nadia:		No!!!
    
    Bolozof:	...You were more fun that I'd 
    		expected. A word of advice:
    		next time, don't come into the
    		world as an Ender.
    		
    Nadia:		...Mr... Bolozof....

    		there... But I feel really bad
    		for her....)
    		
    Zephyrs:	Nadia... I'm disappointed that
    		you were collaborating with
    		the terrorists. I... I can't
    		believe it!
    		
    Nadia:		...Heh... I'm just glad that I 
    		won't have to look at your
    		face anymore.
    		
    Semyl:		...I can't believe these cats...
    		They're gonna dump it all on
    		her.
    
    Mebius:		Do you really think that's
    		going to solve your problems?
    		Because if you do, that's
    		awfully simplistic of you.
    		
    Zephyrs:	You won't be able to make
    		any more of your precocious
    		remarks in a little while. I
    		feel bad for you... But the
    		only ones to blame are the
    		terrorists.
    
    Myona:		(That voice.... I've heard it 
    		somewhere before.... But
    		where? What is this I'm
    		feeling...??)
    		
    Zephyrs:	I am reluctant to do this...
    		But consider yourselves
    		unlucky and just give up.
    		
    Myona:		(Consider yourselves unlucky
    		and just give up... Hmmm...
    		Con... si... deryour... sel...
    		v...?!?)
    		Doctor... Zephyrs?
    		
    Zephyrs:	What?!
    
    Semyl:		Myona... This is Zephyrs?!
    
    Myona:		Huh? Did I... say something
    		just now?
    		
    Zephyrs:	You!... You aren't....
    
    Sp. Task Soldier: Mr. Zephyrs, we have decided
    		upon the execution of the
    		terrorists! It will be
    		underway shortly. Please step
    		back.
    		
    Zephyrs:	(Heh... how could that be?
    		...Should've turned into ashes
    		along with everything else at
    		the lab.)
    		...Very good.
    		(I'll leave the rest to Bolozof
    		and go now....)
    		
    Sp. Task Soldier:All units prepare to shoot....
    		Weapons in ready position!
    		
    Local:		Please don't! If you'd just
    		check one more time, you'll 
    		find that I'm innocent!
    		
    Local:		Hey! Wait!! I didn't do 
    		anything bad!! I've been
    		framed!!
    		
    Sp. Task Soldier:Well, you're out of luck,
    		aren't you. All units aim -
    		and aim so you don't miss!
    		
    Semyl:		Is he... not planning to
    		come?
    		
    Mebius:		(Deckson, you did the right
    		thing. This is a trap. I won't
    		think poorly of you. Darling...
    		Tia... I'll be with you both
    		very soon...)
    		
    Myona:		Cage...
    
    Nadia:		...
    
    Frazer:		...Nadia....
    
    Sp. Task Soldier:OK... Firrrrrre!!!
    
    An Sp. Task Soldier 's mech is suddenly on fire
    
    Sp. Task Soldier:What?! What is going on?!?
    
    Frazer:		(Oh!)
    
    Bolozof:	(Heh, heh... I was getting tired
    		of waiting.)
    		
    Razma:		Heya! You still alive?
    
    Semyl:		You idiot! What took you so
    		long?!
    		
    Razma:		You sound like you're doing
    		okay. Give me a minute--I'll
    		get you out of there.
    		
    Semyl:		...OK!!
    
    Cage:		I'm sorry we're late, Myona!
    		We couldn't get a hold of
    		Warren and Yukito!
    		
    Myona:		Cage...!
    
    Phil:		I'm here too!
    
    Deckson:	We're clearly outnumbered...
    		But we knew this to be a
    		dangerous situation from the
    		very beginning. Mebius, are
    		you all right?
    		
    Mebius:		Heh heh... I gues I won't be
    		seeing those two today... It's 
    		your fault, you know!
    		
    Ares:		So... How do we handle 
    		this...?
    		
    Pharsti:	Cage, there are explosives by
    		the feet of the people who
    		are tied up. There also seems
    		to be a time bomb. I am not
    		certain how much time we
    		have, but we should hurry.
    		
    Cage:		Deckson!
    
    Deckson:	I heard that. So they've got
    		it covered from both angles...
    		They're determined not to let
    		any of the hostages go...
    		There's no time to debate on
    		what we should do!
    		
    		First priority: get the
    		hostages! Free the people
    		who are fixed to the blocks,
    		one by one
    		
    Caeg:		So I should hover above the
    		blocks? Got it!
    		
    Phil:		We don't know how much time
    		we have before the bomb
    		goes off!! Let's hurry!
    		
    Bolozof:	(Heh heh... It's showtime... I 
    		think I'll just watch for a
    		little while.)

    When saving hostages:
    
    Local:		Noooo! Wait!!! Helppppp!! ...Huh?
    		Somebody already came to
    		help? NOW you tell me?
    
    Local:		Coudn't you have come any
    		sooner? That is so
    		inconsiderate! I... I can't stop
    		shaking!!
    		
    Local:		Phew! I've been saved! They
    		just grabbed me out of the
    		blue--I have no idea what
    		happened!!
    		
    Local:		You... you came to help us?
    		Hurry, take these off for
    		me!
    		
    More reinforcements arrive
    
    Cage:		Oh!
    		
    Warren:		Sorry I'm late.
    
    Cage:		How did you know we were...
    
    Yukito:		That Twede appeared out of 
    		nowhere. Anyway, we heard
    		the whole story. I know we're
    		late, but we still wanted to 
    		help.
    		
    		
    Saving the last group of hostages:
    
    Mebius:		Phew... We made it.
    
    Myona:		Come on, Nadia. Come with 
    		us.
    		
    Nadia:		Do as you like.
    
    Semyl:		We're OK - you've got four
    		delicate ladies up in here.
    		Drive safely!
    		
    Cage:		OK!
    
    Nadia:		Why do you want to help me?
    		I have nothing now....
    		
    Mebius:		...That just makes me laugh!
    		You want to die because a
    		guy dumped you? You know,
    		they say that 'The best
    		revenge is to become happy.'
    		Give life another try as a
    		woman.
    		
    Nadia:		...I... I don't need any more
    		of your help, or your
    		lecturing! Let me off!!
    		
    Frazer:		...Miss Nadia. I have come to
    		your rescue.
    		
    Nadia:		...Why?
    
    Frazer:		I do not know. But....
    
    Nadia:		I am no longer your 
    		superior.
    		
    Frazer:		That's true... OK, Nadia. You
    		are still my student. It's only
    		natural for a teacher to save
    		his pupil, is it not? Does this
    		satisfy you?
    		
    Nadia:		Frazer... You are stupid. If 
    		you save me, you are putting
    		yourself into a very bad
    		situation. Don't you even 
    		understand that?!
    		
    Frazer:		That's why I'm still stuck in
    		middle management. Oh, I 
    		suppose I should say 'was
    		stuck.
    		
    Nadia:		...Heh. You want the password
    		to view the coded files, don't
    		you?
    		
    Cage:		Huh?
    
    Nadia:		I'll only say it once. The
    		password is ARIEL!
    		
    Frazer:		(Deckson... Heh heh, now 
    		they're after me too.... But I
    		feel pretty good, suprisingly.
    		You owe me one for today...
    		Ahh, yes. In that Handy PC
    		that I seized from that boy...
    		I guess I'll have to believe
    		them...)

    More enemy LEVs appear headed by Bolozof
    
    Bolozof:	...I didn't care for the ending
    		of that little scene, but that's
    		okay. I shall take back the
    		Animus today!
    		
    Cage:		You didn't care for it, eh
    		Mr. Bolozof, was it? Do you
    		really think that you're going
    		to get away with all these crazy 
    		things you're doing?
    		
    Bolozof:	Hmm? I'm not the one with
    		the problem. Those who hang
    		desperately onto their titles
    		and have no skill--those are
    		the ones who need to worry!
    		
    Cage: 		What?! Don't you worry about
    		your teammates?
    		
    Bolozof:	I don't care, as long as I am
    		having fun. I don't trust
    		anyone...least of all a spoiled
    		brat like you!
    		
    Cage:		What did you say...?
    
    Amante:		Hey, is that the 'Animus'? Can
    		I kill it? Pleasssse. Can I?
    		
    Bolozof:	(Heh heh... She acts so dizzy,
    		but she scored well when she
    		enlisted... wouldn't think it
    		just by looking at her - 
    		she's my little golden egg.)
    		
    		Do as you like. If you can
    		beat it, there's no reason for
    		us to take it back.
    		
    Amante:		Gotcha!
    
    Cage:		Come on, Pharsti.
    
    Pharsti:	I'm ready, Cage!
    
    When Bizac is defeated:

    When Bizac S is weakened:
    
    Bolozof:	Tsk! My Animus... again! One

    		other two were okay. Are you
    		okay, Sis? Did they treat you
    		roughly? Myona, that must've
    		hurt, being tied up like that.
    		If you like, I'll rub it until...
    		
    Semyl:		...Idiot. We trusted you and
    		we were waiting for you.
    		
    Razma:		Did you just say something?
    
    Semyl:		No! Hmph!!
    
    Semyl exits

    Cage:		...Good morning. 
    		Oh! Ms. Robin.
    		
    Robin:		Good morning. You're up so
    		early.
    		
    Cage:		Oh... yes.... Um, you haven't
    		been up all this time, have
    		you?
    		
    Ares:		Yeah. I don't know what the
    		big hurry is, but somehow I
    		got sucked into it also.
    		
    Robin:		<<giggle>> I'm sorry. But
    		thanks to you, we've made a 
    		lot of progress. We were able
    		to decipher the data from
    		Zephyr's factory with that
    		password, Cage.
    		
    Cage:		Really?!
    
    Robin:		Yes... Would you get everyone
    		out here, please?
    		
    Cage:		Sure!
    
    Fade Screen
    
    Razma: 		Lots of new material here...
    		hmm. Boss, what do you think
    		these numbers and dates
    		mean?
    		
    Deckson:	Looks like a backup ledger.
    
    Yukito:		That's kind of strange. It 
    		seems somewhat 
    		unnecessary...
    		
    Ares:		They probably put a lot of
    		trust in the coding. Even
    		after we got the password, it
    		took this much time to make 
    		any sense of it; it would be
    		virtually imposible for even
    		the average expert to decode
    		these files. The actual
    		program itself is a mishmash
    		of symbolic letters and
    		numbers, so it's possible that
    		even after the file was
    		thought to be deciphered, one 
    		would not be able to discern
    		which part was correct and
    		which wasn't. You could
    		analyze for all eternity and
    		never break the code.
    		
    Cage:		Wow, Ares. How do you know
    		all this stuff?
    		
    Ares:		I'm a self-improvement guru.
    		That's all.
    		
    Mebius:		So all we know is that we 
    		may be wrong?
    		
    Robin:		That's not the important part.
    		Look at this: it's the data
    		corresponding to the
    		metatron LEV... or rather,
    		OF.
    		
    Mebius:		Advanced... Animus? This OF
    		blueprint! It looks just like
    		Testament!!
    		
    Yukito:		It IS Testament. So Zephyrs
    		did construct the Black Frame
    		and Testament.
    
    Ares:		Animus... It's a German word,
    		whose roots come from the
    		Latin for 'soul.' Jung, the
    		psychologist, used the term
    		to mean 'an inner self with 
    		interests conflicting with the
    		ego of the person'... the 
    		gender of the word is male.
    		It must be pointing to the
    		existence of the OF for the
    		Earth-side.
    		
    Yukito:		An autonomous soul... Is that 
    		a joke?
    		
    Warreb:		That's what they call a
    		system that claimed the lives
    		of so many children?
    		Fools.... Playing God....
    		
    Ares:		Zephyrs' rampant megalomania
    		aside, the system onboard
    		that frame is impressive, to
    		say the least. It's called the
    		I.D.O. Mindflow System.
    		
    Razma:		Hey... Wasn't that the cause
    		of that accident that was
    		included in the data?
    		
    Ares:		Yes. A very sensitive type of
    		electricity is passed through 
    		the runner's body, and an
    		interactive channel is created
    		between the runner's mind
    		and the machine. After that,
    		those impulses are received 
    		by the neuron circuit in the
    		interior walls composed of
    		metatron... There is no way 
    		that a system such as this
    		could come out of ethical
    		research. Surely there were
    		countless diabolical
    		experiments that took place
    		behind its completion...
    		
    Yukito:		Ah. AN OF that would function
    		according to the thoughts of 
    		the runner. Hey, Cage. Be
    		careful. Most people who ride
    		machines like this are headed
    		for a really miserable
    		future.
    		
    Cage:		Hunh? Huh....
    
    Semyl:		Yeah, that's cool, but in the
    		end it ain't nothin' but a
    		control device, right? I mean,
    		they got stuff that comes
    		close already. Why they gotta
    		do all these sketchy
    		experiments to come up with
    		this stuff?
    		
    Robin:		It occurs to me that this may
    		not be their main goal. By
    		reversing the flow of the
    		neuron circuit we were 
    		talking about earliers, you
    		come up with what's called
    		the 'Self-binder system,' with
    		which it's possible to forcibly
    		enter into the communication
    		route. In other words, it is
    		possible to invade the
    		runner's mind and control his
    		actions.
    		
    Warren:		...And in order to control the
    		system, they started installing
    		advanced A.I.s like Pharsti...
    		
    Yukito:		A battle weapon that will do
    		exactly as commanded at all
    		costs... even when it is
    		damaged, it can be fixed, and
    		there is no costly runner
    		training program. It will be
    		more effective than the
    		unmanned fighters of the 
    		past, and, of course, there is
    		no fear of death to stand in
    		the way of victory.
    		
    Razma:		...As a batlle strategist, this
    		gets a '10' - but on the
    		humanity scale, it's as low as
    		it gets.
    		
    Cage:		So... so there's a possibility
    		that someone can get into my
    		mind, too!?!?
    		
    Robin:		Don't worry. I ran some tests
    		just in case, but Testament
    		doesn't include that system.
    		Right now all it can do is
    		sense brain waves and
    		navigate accordingly. Nobody
    		can control it externally.
    		
    Yukito:		Hmm, kind of like being
    		genetically engineered to be a
    		killing machine, but escaping
    		before your military training.
    
    Cage:		But... if it started moving on
    		its own...
    		
    Ares:		That Black Frame had a 
    		different version of Mindflow
    		System. There's nothing to
    		worry about with Testament.
    		
    Deckson:	At any rate... It's now clear
    		that he was responsible for
    		the demise of the Bonaparte.
    		Now if we just had one last
    		piece of concrete evidence...
    		
    Ares:		...I have an idea.
    
    Myona:		...Mr. Deckson. Please let me
    		help too.
    		
    Semyl:		Myona! Who let ya outta 
    		bed?!
    		
    Phil:		See, I told you! Let's go back
    		to the room.
    		
    Myona:		Thank you, but I am all right.
    		I can't be sleeping at a time
    		like this...
    		
    Cage:		Myona...
    
    Deckson:	Fine... Have a seat, Ares, and
    		tell us what you have in
    		mind.
    		
    		
    ##### SCENE 11: Double Deal #####
    
    Deckson:	Now we're going to acces
    		Zephyrs' server at the
    		military facility, as explained
    		in Ares' plan. Is everyone 
    		ready?
    		
    Razma:		Good to go. I've connected
    		the network directly to the
    		cable, so we won't get
    		charged for it, either! Which
    		means no bills - and we can't
    		be traced. Connect away!
    		
    Semyl:		That's really somethin'! You
    		could make a living outta
    		this.
    		
    Razma:		Yeah? This is an everyday
    		skill, isn't it?
    		
    Semyl:		(...Maybe YOU do this every
    		day...)
    		
    Phil:		The infiltrator program is all
    		set and ready to go!
    		
    Yukito:		Good, all ready on this end
    		also...
    
    Mebius:		From here, even if they do
    		find us, we'll be safe as long
    		as we get rid of the evidence
    		and evacuate.
    		
    Yukito:		Hey, Pops, what do you think
    		of Ares' plan?
    		
    Warren: 	At the moment, I'd give it a 
    		6. I hope the password is
    		still valid, but they're not
    		that stupid, either. I hope I'm
    		overcautious, but there are
    		too many unknown variables.
    		
    Yukito:		Warren, the voice of reason.
    		Well, if everything goes as
    		planned...
    		
    Amante:		Ha, ha. Gotcha!!
    
    Deckson:	Damn! We've been found out
    		already?!
    
    Amante: 	Too bad!! Sneaking around
    		someone else's files is so
    		naughty. Welcome to the real
    		world! You Martians really
    		are the lowest!
    		
    Razma:		What?! Say what you want
    		about Martians, but what's 
    		wrong with sneaking around?
    		
    Semyl:		You idiot! What kind of
    		comment is that?!
    		
    Phil:		Uh, that Bolozof person
    		doesn't seem to be here...
    		
    Amante: 	Lieutenant Bolozof and I are
    		doing separate things today.
    		SO be nice, okay?
    		
    Semyl:		Why's she so relaxed?... Did 
    		she figure out our plan??
    		
    Razma:		We gotta do what we gotta
    		do. They can pull this off. We
    		have tgo have faith in them!
    		
    Semyl:		That's true... OK!
    
    Mebius: 	Oh, no, they saw through us
    		already? How much longer
    		until we can get into the
    		server?
    		
    Deckson:	Phil's program is already
    		running... I'd say 10 minutes.
    		Can you hold them off?
    		
    Warren:		...We'll have to. So I just
    		defend the Edge for the next
    		10 minutes, right?
    		
    Amante:		Hee, hee. Those boys aren't
    		here today? I'm sorry, but
    		this is going to be too easy!
    
    
    COMMENCE BATTLE
    
    After six turns
    
    Deckson:	Darn... The new addition on
    		the other side...
    		
    Amante:		<<giggle>> Youre pretty
    		cute when you're panicking.
    		So what do you think? I'm not
    		just a pretty face, you 
    		know!
    		
    When Amante is defeated
    
    Amante:		Stoppp it! That sucks!! You
    		smeared my makeup.... That's
    		it, I'm going home. Home!!
    		
    After obliterating every enemy
    
    Deckson:	No! The password has been 
    		changed! It's a failure...
    		Everyone evacuate!

    Deckson:	...Everything's on track so
    		far. It's all up to Cage and
    		them now.
    
    Razma:		But pretending to hack and
    		using that as a decoy for the
    		LEV team... and using that
    		opportunity to enter the main
    		facility to find evidence
    		pertaining to the Bonaparte
    		accident... Ares thinks of
    		some pretty aggressive 
    		strategies.
    		
    Phil:		It is so awe-inspiring that
    		Myona requested to come
    		also... when she is so ill!
    
    Razma:		I KNOW! Myona is not just 
    		cute, she has the courage! Unlike
    		other people I know...
    
    Semyl:		...Like who?!
    
    Razma:		Now, we have to go and

    Semyl:		Hey! Wait!!! Heyyyyy!!!!
    
    Mebius:		<<giggle>> Warren, are you
    		still worried that we're being
    		followed?
    		
    Warren:		For now, I think we're safe.
    
    Deckson:	To be on the safe side, let's 
    		provide some distracting
    		maneuvers. I hope they can
    		find the activity data for
    		Bonapate...
    		
    Mebius:		But how do we know it
    		exists?
    		
    Deckson:	According to Ares, he is the
    		cautious type who would have
    		backupdata for everything.
    		
    Warren:		.....
    
    Deckson:	What?
    
    Warren:		...I don't mean to be rude, 
    		but there is something about
    		Ares that bothers me.
    
    Mebius:		What don't you like? Or do
    		you have some sort of
    		reason for feeling that way?
    		
    Warren:		No... I guess it's a hunch.
    
    Deckson:	Warren, I don't doubt you
    		intuition, but let's avoid
    		making statements without
    		logic to back it up. Right now,
    		we should be praying for his
    		success.
    		
    Warren:		...I'm sorry. Forget I said

    UNSF Facility
    
    Ares:		...OK, the coast is clear. This
    		way, Cage.
    		
    Cage:		This is the inside of the 
    		facility? There really isn't 
    		anyone here.
    		
    Ares:		It's proof that Deckson is
    		doing his part within the
    		plan.
    		
    Myona:		Who knew that there were all
    		these underground 
    		passageways...
    		
    Ares:		It's the legacy of the
    		colonists. The earlier
    		immigrants were all
    		specialists of their respective
    		fields. Even these so-called 
    		temporary routes can still be
    		used today. It's rather
    		amazing, actually.
    		
    Myona:		How did you know about it?
    		It's not even on maps
    		anymore, is it?
    		
    Ares:		Past experience. Shall we?
    
    Myona:		(...What is it? ...I feel like I've
    		met him before...)
    		
    Ares:		Hm? What happened?
    
    Myona:		Um, nothing. Let's go.
    
    
    Facility
    
    Cage:		...Hey, is there any other way
    		in besides the vents?
    		
    Ares:		Would you prefer to knock on
    		the front door and be let
    		in?
    		
    Cage:		But with the size of these 
    		things, neither you nor I will
    		be able to get through.
    		
    Myona:		Don't worry. I'll go.
    
    Cage:		Myona... Are you going to be
    		all right?
    		
    Myona:		I wouldn't run from danger 
    		when I was the one who said
    		I wanted to come with you to
    		begin with. Besides, I want to
    		help out, too. I'll be fine. I
    		won't do anything stupid.
    		
    Ares:		...Let's leave this to her. It's 
    		not too bad to wait sometimes
    		and hope for the best.
    		
    Cage:		Um. OK.
    
    Myona:		Thank you. Uh, Cage. Um...your
    		button... Can I borrow it?
    		
    Cage:		Wha?
    
    Myona:		Oh, er, if you don't want to
    		lend it to me, it's fine! It's 
    		just... I just wanted a lucky
    		charm. It's a pretty song,
    		too.
    		
    Ares:		...You still have that thing?
    
    Cage:		Well, it commemorates our 
    		friendship.... It's my prize
    		possession. But if this is
    		going to help you, Myona, by
    		all means, please take it!
    		Here!
    		
    Myona:		Thanks. I'll be very careful
    		with it. And Ares... This
    		song... what is it called? I
    		know I've heard it before,
    		and I've been meaning to ask
    		you.
    		
    Ares:		...It doesn't have a title, and
    		the composer was an old 
    		friend of mine. I'm sure you
    		haven't really heard it 
    		before...
    		
    Myona:		Oh... I see... I thought that
    		maybe it had something to do
    		with my past....
    
    Ares:		(...if you can't remember, it's 
    		probably best to keep it that
    		way...)
    		
    Myona:		Well, here I go.
    
    Ares:		...Myona?
    
    Myona:		Yes?
    
    Ares:		Be careful.
    
    Myona:		I will!
    
    Cage:		Good luck, Myona.
    
    Myona:		Thank you!
    
    Cage:		(Myona... Are you going to be
    		okay? ...I'm so worried about
    		you...)
    		
    Ares:		Cage, are you worried about 
    		her?
    		
    Cage:		Huh? How... how did you
    		know?
    		
    Ares:		Heh heh... you are so simple!
    		You can read your face like
    		a book...
    		
    SFX: Sirens
    
    Cage:		Did Myona get caught? Oh no!
    		We have to go and help 
    		her...
    		
    Ares:		Wait, I don't think that's it. It
    		doesn't seem like the alarm is
    		going off because they found
    		her...
    		
    Cage:		Ares! There's something going 
    		on outside! I'm going to go
    		and check it out!

    ##### Scene 12:  Between Good and Evil #####
    
    Cubick, a blond gal
    
    Cubick:		...As our information
    		suggested, security was light
    		and it was easy to get our
    		prize this time, wasn't it?
    		
    Digit, a young girl with short brown hair
    
    Digit:		This kind of thing is so easy
    		for us Mars Angels.
    		
    Cubick:		Shall we, ladies?
    
    Palme, a quiet girl with long green hair
    
    Palm:		...Well, I think I will excuse
    		myself now...
    		
    Cubick:		Oh? And where to? We have
    		plans to celebrate at Madame
    		Monica's.
    		
    Palm:		Wel....
    
    Digit:		Ohhh, I know. That older man
    		with the moustache??
     
    Cubick:		The gentleman we happened
    		across last night at the bar?
    		Miss Palme? Would you like to
    		explain what is going on?
    		
    Palme:		....
    
    Digit:		Did you forget our vow? Our
    		triple wedding? How could you
    		push Cubie to the limits like
    		that and get yourself a 
    		boyfriend?
    		
    Cubick:		A, anyway!! If that is what
    		you are going to do, we 
    		cannot allow you to act
    		individually.
    		
    Palme:		...We are doing nothing but
    		experiencing what has already
    		been decided previously. He
    		and I were destined to meet 
    		each other on the "Crimson
    		Sphere". You did things to
    		ignore the great prophecies,
    		which is why you have still
    		not...
    		
    Cubick:		I believe you said the same
    		thing before? Your fate lacks
    		credibility.
    		
    Palme:		Ah, a poor lamb who is afraid
    		even to enjoy the provisions
    		of life... Meandering; lost for
    		all eternity... aging all the 
    		while... <<snicker>>.
    		
    Cubick:		Oh! Ha, ha, ha, ha...
    
    Digit:		(Oh no... Not again....)
    
    Cubick:		YOu seem to think that if he
    		knew that head of yours
    		emits nothing but spaced-out
    		ideas, the relationship could
    		continue - and THAT is simply
    		thoughtLESS.
    		
    Cubick attacks Palme, but Palme avoids it
    
    Palme:		That is not a good strategy.
    		If you're jealous, you should
    		just admit it!
    		
    Palme returns the attack, but Cubick also avoids it
    
    Cubick:		And what might you be
    		doing?
    		
    Palme:		...You started it.
    
    Digit:		...Okay you two, now is not
    		the time to be bickering...
    		
    UNSF LEVs appear
    
    UNSF Soldier A:	You three pilots of the
    		unregistered LEVs there! We 
    		know that you unlawfully
    		entered the facility! Stop 
    		where you are, and disembark
    		immediately! Otherwise...
    		
    Cubick:		Well, then I would like to say
    		that I know you drank my
    		tea. Did you really think that
    		I wouldn't find out?
    		
    Palme:		...Nature's gifts are for all to
    		share. Gluttony is a sin!
    		
    Cubick:		Then I have the right to go
    		along with you too.
    		
    Palme:		Now that is a different 
    		matter altogether.
    		
    UNSF Soldier B:	Hey! Are you listening?! Get
    		out now, or we'll....
    		
    Palme:		...Ok, you're really starting to
    		bug me...
    		
    Palme attacks UNSF Soldier A
    
    UNSF Soldier A:	Aaaaaaaaarrrrghhhhhhhhh!
    
    UNSF Soldier B:	You're going to... rebel?!
    
    Cubick:		Really, please stop fussing!
    
    Cubick attacks UNSF Soldier B
    
    UNSF Soldier B:	Uggghghggh...!
    
    Digit		Cubie, Palme, you are so
    		cool!
    
    UNSF Soldier C:	You... You've displayed
    		disrespectful behaviour within
    		the UNSF compound! You... you
    		hear me?! Get them out of 
    		there!
    		
    Numerous UNSF unmanned mechs arrive
    
    Digit:		~Oh yay! There's so many of
    		them!~
    
    Cubick:		Miss Palme, would you look at
    		this? I suggest we continue
    		this later.
    		
    Palme:		...Gladly...
    
    UNSF Soldier C:	Heh heh heh.... It's the
    		newest unmanned
    		anti-terrorist machine, fresh
    		from the factory!
    		
    		(There's enough of 'em; they'll
    		take care of it from here...
    		I'm leaving)
    		
    		Go!!
    		
    Cage:		Pharsti, you've been waiting 
    		for me?
    		
    Pharsti:	Yes... Cage? You are very
    		early... Are you already going 
    		to escape?
    		
    Cage:		No. Things feel weird, so I
    		just came back alone... Hey, 
    		what is going on?
    		
    Pharsti:	I do not know. THe LEV with
    		the pink line arrived 
    		suddenly... It does not seem
    		to belong to the UNSF.
    		
    Palme:		I don't feel animosity from
    		that frame, so I don't think 
    		it's with the UNSF.
    		
    Digit:		If they're in the facility, and
    		they're not UNSF, thy must
    		be... in our industry???
    		
    Cubick:		My, what lovely form!
    
    Cage:		Oh, er, thank you. Who are
    		you?
    		
    Cubick:		If you are going to ask
    		somebody's name, you really
    		should state yours first.
    		
    Cage:		Huh! Oh! Excuse me! My name
    		is Cage... Cage Midwell!!
    		
    Cubick:		(...Not bad... a few more years
    		and...)
    		
    Palme:		...This is not the kind of
    		situation where we can afford
    		leisurely chatter. Hurry, let's
    		take care of business.
    		
    Digit: 		OK. That's right - you don't
    		want to be late for your
    		date.
    		
    Cubick:		That's true... To begin with,
    		we shall destroy them... then
    		we'll think about what to do
    		next! Cage, is that all right 
    		with you?
    		
    Cage:		Wha? Oh, yes.
    
    Pharsti:	Cage... Are you sure?
    
    Cage:		I... I don't really know what's 
    		happening, but they seem liek
    		they need help... and if we
    		make a racket outside, it
    		might make it easier for Ares
    		and Myona to get in!
    		
    Pharsti:	...Roger. In this situation, we
    		do not have much choice...
    		Let us procceed!
    		
    Cage:		Got it!
    
    Ares:		...An LEV with a pink line. So
    		those are the 'Mars Angels'...
    		What are a bunch of
    		nouveau-riche thrillseekers
    		doing here?
    
    ??????:		How am I supposed to know?
    		We can just get rid of their
    		sponsor and get rid of them.
    		
    Ares:		Don't bother with the little
    		people. More importantly, you
    		got rid of all those people
    		for me. I'll go ahead and 
    		finish my business.
    		
    ??????:		The old man's here, though.
    
    Ares:		...It's not a problem. Actually,
    		it's exactly what I wanted.
    
    ??????:		Hmm. OK. Well, you go ahead
    		and do your thing. Ending
    		communication...

    UNSF General:	Hey! What are you doing? Are
    		you in contact with the team
    		that went after the
    		terrorists?
    
    UNSF Soldier:	Uh, Sir, there seems to be
    		some jamming surrounding the
    		compound, and I cannot
    		establish contact!
    		
    UNSF General:	What?!? Find out what 
    		happened!! Prepare the attack
    		system!! Don't forget that
    		Mr. Zephyrs is here! You
    		mess up and it's not only

    UNSF Soldie:	Y-yes sir!
    
    UNSF General:	That female... took that LEV...
    
    Before Cage's next turn
    
    Myona: 		...There. This must be the

    		you.
    		
    Cage:		Ms. Mebius!
    
    Warren:		We finished our part early,
    		so we rushed over here to 
    		help out... Aren't you
    		supposed to be invading with
    		the others?
    		
    Cage:		Mr. Warren! Um, well, it's a
    		long story...
    		
    Warren:		It doesn't matter... Are the
    		two inside? Let's provide a

    Cage:		Yes sir! Oh, the LEVs with the

    		Please be careful!
    		
    Mebius:		I don't really understand, but
    		OK!
    		
    Cubick:		(I had suspected, but... that IS
    		an Orbital Frame. Which 
    		means... they're BIS??)
    		
    Digit: 		They're your friends? We'll 
    		never lose!!
    		
    Palme:		Oh!!
    
    		(<<gasp>> ...That gentleman
    		with the black glasses... how

    Before Cage's next turn again
    
    Myona:		.... Now for the data log.....
    
    ???????:	Who's there? What are you
    		doing in here?
    		
    Myona:		What?!
    
    Before Cage's turn again
    
    Pharsti:	Cage, may I ask a question?
    		A question?
    		
    CHOICES: (1)Yeah sure.
    	 (2)Right now... Can this wait?
    		
    
     --------------------------------------------		
    | Cage:		-> Right now... Can this wait?
    |
    | Cage: 	Right now....? Let's do it 
    | 		later, I'm worried about the
    | 		two of them inside.
    |
    | Pharsti:	That is true. Please forget I 
    | 		asked.
     --------------------------------------------
    		
    		
    Cage:		-> Yeah sure
    
    Cage:		Sure, what's the question?
    
    Pharsti:	Did Ares play the song 
    		recorded on the wearable 
    		player?
    
    Cage:		Wearable...? Oh, my button?
    		Yes, he did.
    		
    Pharsti:	If it would be okay with you,
    		I would like to hear it.
    
    CHOICES:  (1) Of course I don't mind...
              (2) Can we do this later?
    
     --------------------------------------------
    | Cage:		-> Can we do this later?
    | 
    | Cage:		Right now....? Let's do it 
    | 		later, I'm worried about the
    | 		two of them inside.
    | 
    | Pharsti:	That is true. Please forget I 
    | 		asked.
     --------------------------------------------
    
    		
    Cage:		->Of course I don't mind...
    
    Cage:		What? I don't mind, but...
    		why??
    		
    Pharsti:	I don't know, but that music
    		has some effect on me that I 
    		cannot quite discern. Perhaps
    		it is being plaued in a special way??
    		
    Cage:		...I was... born on an
    		emigration spacecraft, and 
    		spent my entire life on
    		board.
    
    Pharsti:	What?
    
    Cage:		The captain raised me, and 
    		passed away when I was 13.
    		After that, I went from ship
    		to ship... Then last year, I
    		boarded the Bonaparte III. By
    		then I had become really
    		quiet, and all I did was work
    		and sleep. But one night, I
    		heard that song from the
    		lobby... I've had it every 
    		since.
    
    Pharsti:	Ares... was playing?
    
    Cage:		It's a very pretty song. It
    		feels familiar, even when you
    		hear it for the first time... It
    		would make me feel happy. I 
    		couldn't control myself, and I
    		started talking to Ares. He
    		taught me how to play...
    		although I never got to be as
    		good as him.
    		
    		(He also showed me that a
    		person of the same age is
    		capable of being so much
    		more...)
    		
    Pharsti:	...And that is how you met? I
    		understand... So the song is
    		very memorable for the both
    		of you?
    		
    Cage:		Yeah.... His emotions are
    		expressed in his playing. That 
    		must be why you feel
    		something when you hear it
    		also.
    		
    Pharsti:	Is... that why?
    
    Cage:		Yeah, I think so.
    
    Pharsti:	I see....
    
    
    After obliterating all the Unmanned mechs
    
    UNSF General:	All gone...?! Those monsters?!
    
    Digit:		Aaaawhh! We lost!!
    
    Cubick:		Digi, when were we 
    		competing?
    		
    Palme:		...My channeling abilities are
    		telling us that we have
    		overstayed our visit.
    		
    Cubick:		I guess we best get going.
    		Digi, would that be all right
    		with you?
    		
    Digit:		Sure.
    
    Palme drives her Mars Angel LEV next to Cage
    
    Palme:		...You have more use for this
    		than anyone. I'm sending it
    		over...
    		
    Pharsti:	Data received... This... This is
    		the data log for the 
    		Bonaparte!!
    		
    Cage:		?
    
    Pharsti:	Now we will be able to prove
    		all aspects of the Bonaparte
    		accident!
    		
    Cage:		But... why?
    
    Palme:		You changed the course of
    		your own dsitiny with you
    		own strength... I merely
    		obeyed the natural order...
    		Heh heh.... Hehheh.
    		
    Digit:		I think this is the original.
    		Our information is always 
    		accurate!
    		
    Cubick:		We were able to get the
    		information we were after.
    		That is something that came
    		up in the process. Here is 
    		another record of something;
    		you're welcome to it if you
    		are interested.
    		
    Cage:		What could this be?!
    
    Cubick:		We are the Heavenly Bodies
    		of the Crimson Sphere - the
    		'Mars Angels'... We look
    		forward to seeing you again
    		somewhere. Until then...
    		Ta-ta!
    		
    Cage:		...And off they go...
    
    		(the 'Mars Angels'... Hmm....)
    		
    Pharsti:	Cage, should we not help the
    		two inside to evacuate?
    		
    Cage:		Oh, you're right. Can you
    		locate them?
    		
    Pharsti:	Just a moment... Scan
    		complete. 4 responses
    		registered.
    
    Cage:		4? Myona, Ares, ...and who
    		else??
    		
    Pharsti:	One of whome is apparently
    		battling with someone. Site
    		located. This is the room that
    		we will be entering.
    		
    Cage:		What?!? So, Myona...?

    Myona:		You're over!

    		you come in here? Is this
    		what you were looking for?
    		
    Myona:		What?
    
    Zephyrs:	The data log from the
    		Bonaparte. I should have
    		gotten rid of it along with all
    		the survivors, but the
    		motherland wanted a report.
    		A formality.
    		
    Myona:		The survivors...? You didn't....

    		are one of them.
    		
    Myona:		Answer my question!
    
    Zephyrs:	Yes. All those aboard the

    Myona:		...You... Monster....

    Myona:		...This is not an idle threat!

    Myona:		Cage!

    Razma:		Instead of PDA, could you
    		hurry things up? There are
    		people back here waiting to

    Myona:		Oh, I'm sorry!
    
    Ares:		And how did it all go?
    
    Myona:		Y-yes... Here... It's the data
    		log for the Bonaparte.
    		
    Warren:		Somehow the plan worked,
    		then?
    		
    Mebius:		That's great!
    
    Cage:		That data has been saved on

    		the ladies who we fought with
    		gave it to me...
    		
    Pharsti:	She said she was a

    Yukito:		You met the 'Mars Angels'?!
    
    Cage:		Um, yes.
    
    Yukito:		Dang! You are so lucky!!
    		They're so hot!!! And they're
    		really popular these days.
    		
    Decksin:	We'll talk about this later.
    		We've gotten what we went in
    		for. Now let's get out of
    		here!
    		
    Phil:		We're heading home!
    
    [SCENE12 CLEARED]
    
    BIS Hideout
    
    Phil:		What?! You're going to tell
    		the press?!
    		
    Deckson:	Mm-hm. Using Yukito's
    		connections. Apparently
    		there's a director over at
    		HBC that we can trust.
    		
    Cage:		HBC... what's that?
    
    Semyl:		It's a television network,
    		'Hellespontos Broadcasting.'
    		It's the big dog around these
    		here parts.
    		
    Phil:		Oh, that's right! Mr. Yukito's
    		father is...
    		
    Yukito:		It's almost time...
    
    Deckson:	Yeah, we should get ready.
    
    Ares:		Media coverage... heh heh, 
    		this is getting fun.
    		
    Warren:		...It's not funny. There are
    		lives at stake.
    		
    Ares:		Of course. But he did not
    		come here for corruption or
    		bribery. He takes innocent
    		lives, and thinks nothing of
    		it.... Besides, if he involved
    		civilians in the development of
    		warheads, that is a serious
    		misdemeanor charge. Our
    		chances of success are
    		better than good.
    		
    		Which means all we have to
    		do is to see to it that he
    		loses autonomy. And always
    		be on the lookout for
    		counterattacks.
    		
    Deckson:	Exactly... the broadcast itself
    		is more to discourage
    		Zephyrs' supporters than
    		Zephyrs himself, and lessen
    		his power.... But nothing is
    		ever that easy. Today we'll
    		have them look at the 
    		information we put together,
    		and get them to believe it. All
    		the while being very careful
    		so that we will be able to
    		effectively prove the
    		innocence of all his victims.
    		
    Myona:		Well, then we will...
    
    Deckson:	No. Today it will be just
    		myself and Mebius. Since the
    		last incident, security has
    		tightened up considerably. You
    		all stay here and stand by,
    		just in case something
    		happens.
    		
    Razma:		But isn't it dangerous... with
    		just the two of you?
    		
    Mebius:		Oh? You don't trust me? Or
    		are you just jealous that you
    		can't come along?
    		
    Razma:		Sis!! I'm serious....
    
    Mebius:		...I know. If we want them to
    		trust us, we need to trust
    		them a bit too. Especially
    		given our position in the
    		matter.
    		
    Deckson:	On top of that, Twede will be
    		helping us, and if things start
    		to feel risky, we'll leave
    		before anything happens. May
    		I point out that I used to....
    		
    Razma:		OK! We'll have time later for

    		such a thing!
    		
    Ares:		...What if Zephyrs and his men
    		had it all figured out?
    		
    Phil:		That would mean that they 
    		knew what we are doing,	
    		right? But who would...?
    		
    Yukito:		It's not possible... nobody
    		knew about this. We didn't
    		even tell you all until right
    		before they left.
    
    Ares:		The important thing right now
    		is their safety. What do you
    		think, Warren?
    		
    Warren:		...No objection. Why are you
    		asking me?
    		
    Ares:		Because you don't trust me.
    
    Myona:		What? Is that true?
    
    Warren:		...I trust you...
    
    Ares:		Ah. Well, that is good to

    Yukito, CEO:	Would you mind if I took a 
    		look at it?
    		
    Amante:		And 'whyyy,' may I ask?
    
    Yukito, CEO:	I took time out of my
    		schedule specifically to help
    		you out. If it's a bunch of
    		nonsense, what's the problem?
    		Or is there something you
    		don't want me to see?
    		
    Bolozof:	Nonsense it is, but there are
    		still parts of it that have to
    		do with national security. I'm
    		very sorry, but you cannot
    		look at it.... Mr. Chairman, you
    		need to understand. We
    		appreciate your help. But we
    		also expect it. We can 
    		command you to do it, but we
    		have gone out of our way not
    		to.
    		
    Yukito, CEO:	And for that, I am grateful. I
    		was just curious as to what
    		these rogue BIS people had
    		fabricated as 'evidence.' I
    		apologize if I have made you
    		uncomfortable in any way.
    		
    Bolozof:	Curiosity.... <<snicker>>. If
    		you want to live long, you
    		should mind your own
    		business.
    		
    Amante:		Mr. Bolozofff! Some-one's
    		he-re!
    		
    Bolozof:	...Good, we didn't need to find
    		them. Did you find the man?
    		
    Sp. Task Soldier: No, sir. We are still
    		searching! We have added
    		more people to the search
    		team, and...
    		
    Bolozof:	Call the search off. We can
    		have enough fun with the
    		girl.
    		
    Yukito, CEO:	(...So this is the Special Task
    		Force Acemos. They could
    		definitely be trouble.... I'll
    		have to do something about
    		that.)
    		
    BIS Troops arrive
    
    Warren:		An ambush! The information
    		had leaked out somehow!
    		
    Yukito:		Shoot, I hope those two are
    		safe...
    		
    An AFV appears
    
    Myona:		...It's...!
    
    Deckson:	...Everyone....
    
    Phil:		Mr. Deckson! We're going!
    
    Deckson:	...I'm perfectly all right. The
    		problem is Mebius....
    		
    Razma:		Sis?!? No!!
    
    Deckson:	...I'm sorry. I take
    		responsibility. She tried to
    		free me, and was captured...
    		Pathetic... Uggghghghgghhh!!
    		
    Semyl:		Boss! Are you hurt? ...Oh
    		god!
    		
    Ares:		...Let's go back.
    
    Vjaya takes Edge 
    
    Yukito:		Mebius is still inside....
    		...
    		Myona!
    
    Myona:		Y-yes!!
    
    Yukito: 	I have an idea. Hear me out.
    
    Myona:		An idea? Of course!
    
    Bizac S, Bizac, and an enemy LEV appears
    
    Bolozof:	...That was a good hinding
    		place....
    		
    Cage:		...Bolozof... You again! Where 
    		is she!!
    		
    Bolozof:	Calm down. She's inside. If
    		you can defeat us, you can
    		have her, free of harm.
    		
    Razma:		Didn't it occur to you to
    		disarm your hostages? You
    		must be very confident in
    		your power... but I guarantee
    		you'll be crying later!
    		
    Bolozof:	That's not a concern; you will
    		have no 'later.' I am going to
    		stop you all from breathing!
    		
    Ares:		Is that right...
    
    Bolozof:	My wish is to make you
    		surrender to my power.... Let
    		the show begin!
    		
    Cage:		All this stupidity... it's coming
    		to an end!
    		
    Bolozof:	Heh, heh, heh....
    
    Myona:		...I am going.
    
    Yukito:		Good luck. You have the map
    		and the staff ID?
    		
    Myona:		Yes.
    
    Cage:		Myona? What are you doing??
    
    Myona:		Cage, I'm... going to help Ms. 
    		Mebius to get out of there!
    		
    Phil:		What?!? That is too
    		dangerous!
    		
    Myona:		It's okay. Mr. Yukito told me
    		where the hostages would
    		probably be located, and he
    		also showed me the safe
    		routes.
    		
    Warren:		But it's still risky.... I will go
    		with you.
    		
    Deckson:	You're not alone. I will go
    		too.
    		
    Yukito:		Boss?!?
    
    Deckson:	I am the only one who can
    		afford to move freely right
    		now. There's no time to argue
    		about it.
    		
    Warren:		But... you're injured.
    
    Deckson:	It's a scratch.
    
    Yukito:		Overexertion is never a good
    		thing. If something happens to
    		you, it may put her in
    		danger.
    		
    Deckson:	Heh heh heh... I know that. I 
    		won't do anything stupid....
    		Let's go.
    		
    Myona:		Er, yes....
    
    Cage:		Are you sure you're okay?
    
    Myona:		Mm-hmm, I have the button....
    		Oh, I'm sorry, I wasgoing to
    		give it back...
    		
    Cage:		I don't mind. Do you, Ares?
    
    Ares:		No. It's up to you, anyway.
    
    Myona:		...I have another favor to ask
    		of you.
    		
    Cage:		What?
    
    Myona:		Will you say my name?
    
    Cage:		Huh? Uh, sure.... Um, good
    		luck, Myona. If anything
    		happens, just come right
    		back, okay?
    		
    Myona:		...Thank you. Well, here
    		goes...
    		
    Semyl:		A-ight! Let's bounce!
    
    COMMENCE BATTLE
    
    After a turn
    
    Deckson:	Not here either....
    
    Myona:		Getting in was easy... But
    		searching the entire building
    		is going to be quite difficult.
    		
    Deckson:	Ok, we'll have to separate. I'll
    		take the top floors; Myona, 
    		you take the bottom half.
    		
    Myona:		Okay.
    
    After a few more turns
    
    Myona:		(Not here.... I wonder where
    		they put Ms. Mebius...? I hope
    		Mr. Deckson can find her...)
    		
    ????????:	Who is it? What are you doing
    		there!
    		
    Myona:		Oh no!!
    
    		(Cage...!)
    		
    When Amante is weakened
    
    Amante:		Owwie! ...Heyyyy! That hurts!
    		Mr. Bolozof! I'm going to take
    		a little rest!
    		
    When Bolozof is weakened
    
    Cage:		Whether or not you like it,
    		the battle has already been
    		won! Release Ms. Mebius!
    		
    Bolozof:	It's a little early to be so
    		smug.... Look at this!
    		
    Pharsti:	An image is being sent from
    		the enemy frame. It appears 
    		to be the top of a building.
    		
    Cage:		(It... it's Ms. Mebius!!)
    
    Mebius:		Darling... Tia... Where are
    		you? It's so dark... Don't 
    		leave me here....
    		
    Cage:		What did you do?! This wasw
    		not the agreement!
    		
    Bolozof:	I have no desire to enter
    		agreements with those who 
    		cannot even negotiate lives
    		correctly... The woman was
    		hypnotized for interrogation
    		purposes. Right about now,
    		she is probably racked with
    		guilt... so much that all she
    		wants now is to escape.
    		Which is why she is on top of
    		that building, I suppose...
    		
    Cage:		How could you...
    
    		(Myona... you didn't get there
    		on time?)
    		
    Bolozof:	Power down your machine.
    		Your irresponsible actions
    		have caused all this... You
    		keep that in mind!
    		
    Cage:		.............
    
    Sphere/TV Station
    
    Acemos Soldier:	The terrorist frame has been
    		restrained!
    		
    Bolozof:	Heh heh heh... excellent. Now
    		watch after them.
    		
    Acemos Soldier:	Sir!
    
    Razma:		Release Sis, you big jerk!!
    
    Cage:		Myona.... I hope you haven't 
    		been caught....
    		
    Ares:		Don't worry. They haven't 
    		even noticed.
    		
    Cage:		I hope that's the case... Ares,
    		I really respect you. I'm so
    		worried....
    		
    Ares:		I'm worried too. But I can
    		tell these things about her...
    		
    Cage:		Huh?
    
    Yukito, CEO:	Ah... And these are the
    		infamous BIS? May I?
    		
    Yukito:		Fa... Father!... Why are
    		you...!??!
    		
    Yukito, CEO:	...You foolish boy. Tadamichi,
    		your mother is probably
    		crying in heaven right now.
    		
    Bolozof:	Hm... your son... this is
    		special. We may have to place
    		you under arrest also!
    		
    Yukito, CEO:	He says he's a revolutionary,
    		but it's all just childish
    		games. He has no idea that
    		he is being sed as a pawn,
    		and goes around with his
    		affected air and hurts
    		innocent people... Anyone who
    		does this is no son of mine....
    		I cut him off a long time
    		ago.
    		
    Bolozof:	Hmph! It makes no difference;
    		you'll be saying your
    		farewells soon enough. You
    		stay and watch!
    		
    Amante:		Mr. Bolozof! Poor little Bizac
    		was badly damaged, so I made
    		arrangements to get her
    		fixed at the TV station!
    		
    Bolozof: 	You act quickly... I'll let
    		Zephyrs know that too. Come,
    		we'll go into the building.
    		
    Amante:		Cominggg!
    
    Yukito, CEO:	Tadamichi.... Had you worked
    		for me, you could have had a
    		good life...
    		
    Yukito:		You're always like that. you
    		know nothing about me, and
    		you force your set of beliefs
    		on me... I have my own 
    		beliefs! Regardless of whether
    		other people agree with me,
    		or understand me, I am going
    		my own way! Leave me
    		alone!!
    		
    Yukito, CEO:	Now shut up! How many
    		victims are burried under your
    		beliefs?! If you're going to go
    		your own way, don't involve
    		others!! Take some
    		responsibility!!
    		
    Yukito:		...
    
    Yukito, CEO:	You even ran away from
    		home, and that's all you've 
    		learned?... This is useless...
    		but your plan isn't bad; look
    		at this.
    		
    Yukito:		What? It's just a mini TV.
    		What about it?
    		
    Yukito, CEO:	Be grateful for your
    		sponsor.
    		
    Semyl:		You mean Ms. Robin?
    
    Yukito, CEO:	Yes, and the young lady who
    		trusted me enough to listen
    		to my suggestions at our
    		first meeting.
    		
    Cage:		The young lady... you don't 
    		mean...?!?
    		
    Anchor:		...And now, we have an
    		unscheduled break in the
    		program. BIS has taken
    		control of our studio. They
    		have an announcement that
    		they would like to make.
    
    Ares:		...Heh.
    
    ?????:		Uh? Oh, am I already on?!
    		Um...
    		
    Cage:		This voice... Myona?!
    
    Myona:		...Hello, everyone. Can you hear
    		me? I am a member of the
    		Anti-Terrestrial League, BIS.
    		My name is Myona Alderan.
    		
    		I have a very important
    		announcement for you today.
    		What I am I about to tell you
    		is the truth; please believe
    		me.
    		
    Yukito, CEO:	Here, I'll remove your 
    		handcuffs. You're on you
    		own from there.
    		
    Yukito:		Dad... you didn't....
    
    Yukito, CEO:	Don't call me Dad!... And you
    		have to promise me that
    		you'll help me come up with
    		an excuse to report to your
    		mother.
    		
    [ SCENE13 CLEARED ]
    
    Conf. Room
    
    Zephyrs:	...What do you think, General
    		Jaeger? Even now, the rebels
    		on Mars show no signs of
    		stopping. All things 
    		considered, a metatron-fuelled
    		riot control LEV such as
    		this...
    		
    Jaeger:		'HarutMarut,' eh? The specs 
    		are impressive... there's no 
    		denying the existence of the
    		BAHRAM and other such
    		meddlesome groups, so I
    		suppose we do need these
    		kinds of weapons.
    		
    Zephyrs:	Heh heh heh... A prototype
    		has already been completed. 
    		Would you like to take a look
    		at the real thing?
    		
    Jaeger:		A prototype...? But you just
    		received permission to pursue
    		this project.
    		
    Zephyrs:	I did it for the benefit of
    		our homeland. I would like to
    		be recognized for my
    		patriotism also.
    		
    Jaeger:		Hmph. At any rate, I did not
    		come allt his way to Mars to
    		make caustic comments.... The
    		truth of the matter is,
    		Zephyrs, that I commend your
    		administrative abilities as
    		pertains to this project.
    		However, it has also come to
    		my attentiont that you are
    		abusing your status to do as
    		you like.
    		
    Zephyrs:  	But... who would say such a
    		thing?
    		
    Jaeger:		I personally do not find it
    		necessary to doubt you on
    		these grounds; you are highly
    		talented, and I would like to
    		keep you around. A watchdog
    		should guard its territory
    		and do nothing more, and its
    		collar should never be 
    		removed. A dog without a
    		collar is nothing but a stray.
    		And a stray that is willful - 
    		well, that is a beast. One
    		would never want that to 
    		happen.
    		
    Zephyrs:	...
    
    A knocking sound
    
    UNSF Supervisor: Excuse me, sir! The
    		terrorists have occupied the
    		TV station. We are heading
    		there now, sir!
    		
    Zephyrs:	Bolozof.... What is he doing?
    
    Jaeger:		Occupation? That's a bit
    		archaic... but it can be very
    		effective.... Let's see what
    		they have to say. Sho that
    		broadcast on the screen.
    		
    Zephyrs:	General! THat is not worth
    		watching! It is only a matter 
    		of time until we....
    		
    Jaeger:		That is not for you to decide.
    		Be quiet and sit over there.
    		This is an order.
    		
    Myona:		...We would have preferred to
    		talk to you in accordance
    		with normal broadcast
    		procedures, but because
    		there are people who want to
    		conceal the truth, we had no
    		choice but to do it in this 
    		way. We apologize. The 
    		validity of my words is up to
    		you, the viewers, to decide;
    		however, I would like you to
    		know that we have no
    		intention of presenting lies. I
    		hope that you will believe us.
    		Firstly, I would like to say
    		that the person who is
    		concealing everything is the
    		UNSF Internal Inspection
    		Chief, Dezeele Zephyrs... he is
    		the origin of the lies. The
    		ship that I was on was
    		destroyed by him.... The name
    		of the ship was Bonaparte 
    		III. I am sure you all
    		remember the accident, since
    		it took place recently, but 
    		the official announcement
    		declared all passengers dead.
    		That is a lie... andI am sure
    		of it, because I myself am a
    		survivor.
    		
    ##### SCENE 14: The Card Turned Down #####
    		
    Mebius:		...I-I've hurt a lot of
    		people--him, Tia... If it
    		weren't for me, nobody would
    		have become unhappy... Even
    		that day... if I hadn't asked 
    		him to go out and find a
    		stuffed animal for our child,
    		who hadn't even been born
    		yet...
    		
    Deckson:	Mebius, it's me! Do you know
    		who I am?
    
    Mebius:		Deck... son?
    
    Deckson:	That's right. You were blaming
    		yourself, just as you are
    		doing now, when we first
    		met.... You think too much.
    		You're totally different from
    		someone like me, who escapes
    		from reality by convincing
    		himself that what he's doing 
    		now is destiny...
    Mebius:		No.... Stay away!
    
    Deckson:	'Stay away....' I suppose I can
    		understand if you dislike me.
    		I am a coward! Because of
    		me, you had to go through 
    		this all alone.... But we've
    		come a long way together. I
    		still need your help from now
    		on... Mebius... Come here!
    		
    Mebius:		...Deckson... I can't... I... The
    		truth is that you...
    		
    UNSF Soldier:	You! What are you doing 
    		there! It's... YOU!... How did
    		you get inside?!
    		
    Mebius:		Deckson!!
    
    Deckson:	What?!
    
    		Aaagghhhhhhh!
    		
    Cage:		Myona's on TV... What's going
    		on?
    		
    Yukito, CEO:	Ms. O'Connell told me
    		everything. I saw all of the 
    		evidence that you and your
    		friends have been putting 
    		together to incriminate
    		Zephyrs.... If it's all true, it's
    		unforgivable! Tadamichi.... I
    		was wrong about you.
    		
    Yukito:		Dad...
    
    Yukito, CEO:	Regardless, I couldn't
    		broadcast it so irresponsibly.
    		After all, there is no
    		guarantee that Zephyrs will
    		not retaliate somehow. I have
    		my employees' safety to
    		worry about, so it was
    		impossible for me to give
    		permission to broadcast that
    		information... My meeting with
    		that young girl was a true
    		godsend.
    		
    Phil:		You met Miss Myona inside?
    		But... how did you know that
    		she was one of us?
    		
    Yukito, CEO:	She was carrying Tadamichi's 
    		ID. She deserves all the
    		credit; she's the one who
    		understood what I was saying
    		immediately.
    		
    Cage:		Myona...
    
    Yukito, CEO:	...I would never have taken
    		part in something like this
    		before. i guess I have grown
    		old.
    		
    Yukito:		Dad...
    
    Yukito, CEO:	Tadamichi. Do what you
    		believe to be right. And take
    		responsibility for all you do.
    		
    Yukito:		Yes... I will. Thank you.
    
    Yukito, CEO:	All I did was make a few
    		arrangements to air the
    		segment. If you want to thank
    		anyone, thank Ms. O'Connell
    		and the girl.
    		
    a ringing sound
    
    Mebius:		Everyone! Can you hear me?
    
    Warren:		Mebius!

    Mebius:		I'm fine, and sane. But

    Bolozof:	...They've done it.
    
    Cage:		The truth about Zephyrs is
    		finally out! It's over!
    		
    Bolozof:	...I don't care what happens
    		to Zephyrs. I will not let you
    		move your frame. I'll stay out
    		of sight for a while until

    a ringing sound again
    
    Pharsti:	Cage. There is a 
    		communication on the direct
    		circuit. The regular circuit
    		will be cut off temporarily.
    		
    Cage:		What?
    
    Twede:		...I have undone the 
    		restraints. You should be able
    		to move now.
    		
    Cage:		Mr. Twede?! How...
    
    Twede:		...I've done the same witht he
    		others.
    		
    Cage:		Pharsti, can you move?
    
    Pharsti:	Yes, there is no problem.
    
    Twede:		...That is all.
    
    Cage:		Thank you so much, Mr.
    		Twede! Let's go, Oharsti!
    		
    COMMENCE BATTLE
    
    After a turn:
    
    Bolozof:	What?! Their restraints were
    		unfastened?... Why? Amante!
    		
    Amante:		I'm here. What do you need?
    
    Bolozof:	I'm taking the Bizac! As long
    		as it moves, I don't care!
    		
    Amante:		I had it all fixed up. What do
    		you think? I'm good, aren't 
    		I?
    		
    Bolozof:	Yes, good job. Well, in that
    		case, there's no need to
    		choose. Come!
    		
    Amante:		Okayyy, let's go!
    
    		(...This will be the last
    		battle...)
    		
    After obliterating the LEVs on 1st battle, Bizac S appears
    
    Bolozof:	Useless trash... can't even
    		stop them! That's fine--I shall
    		end it once and for all!
    		
    Cage:		Finally!
    
    Bolozof:	...Amante? Where are you?
    		Amante, what are you doing?
    
    Amante:		Zephyrs is over, and so is
    		my job. I have to go and
    		report all this, so good luck
    		from now on...
    		
    Bolozof:	What does that mean?!
    
    Amante:		You STILL don't get it? I'm
    		done with you people.
    		
    Bolozof:	I was used...? You little brat,
    		who are you?
    		
    Amante:		<<giggle>>... Not telling... At
    		the very least, though, I'm 
    		not supporting Earth.
    		
    Bolozof:	No...
    
    Amante:		Besides, I don't really like
    		guys who are mean to girls.
    		So, later!
    		
    Bolozof:	Rrrgh... This is classic... a
    		Martian rat was able to get
    		in. Damn BAHRAM!
    		
    Commence 2nd Battle
    
    When Cage approaches Bolozof to attack
    
    Bolozof:	We're both sick of seeing
    		each other, I'm sure. Shall we
    		get this over with?
    		
    Cage:		Get this over with...
    
    Bolozof:	That's right, you and me...to
    		the death!
    		
    Cage:		...Fine. I will take you down!
    
    Bolzof:		Heh heh heh... that's what I 
    		like to hear.
    		
    After beating Bolozof:
    
    Bolozof:	Ugghgh!... This is it... But I
    		won't sink at your hands! I
    		won't crawl along the Martian
    		dirt! I live free and die free!
    		After I die, nobody will even
    		touch my body! Look at me! I
    		am Bolozof! You'll be hearing
    		it in the next world! Ha, ha,
    		ha!! HAA HA HA HA HAH!
    		
    Bizac S explodes
    
    Pharsti:	...It appears he did not use 
    		the evacuation device....

    		Bolozof, even at the very
    		end.

    Myona (TV):	...He conducted these
    		unethical experiments in
    		order to perfect this
    		technology, and that lies at
    		the heart of the accident of
    		Bonaparte III, which I
    		mentioned earlier. This
    		concerns not only Mars, but
    		also Earth...
    		
    Jaeger:		...Is there anything that you
    		would like to tell me now?
    		
    Zephyrs:	Th-That's clearly a plot to
    		frame me! A bunch of
    		falsehoods! If it were true,
    		they would have some sort of
    		evidence!!
    		
    Myona (TV):	I don't expect you to 
    		believe what I said without
    		evidence... This is the data
    		log of the Bonaparte III...
    		
    Zephyrs:	...<<snicker>>
    
    A phone rings
    
    Jaeger:		...It is I.... I don't care. put
    		him on.
    		
    Irving:		...Dezeele, it's too...
    
    Zephyrs:	Don't worry. All of the data
    		has been destroyed. There is
    		no evidence anywhere.
    
    Irving:		...
    
    Jaeger:		...Of course. Zephyrs - it's 
    		for you.
    		
    Zephyrs:	...Yes... Zephyrs speaking...
    
    Yukito, CEO:	Did you have a chance to
    		watch the broadcast? That
    		was quite a spectacle!
    		
    Zephyrs:	You...
    
    Yukito, CEO:	This is troublesome for us
    		also - having them storm our
    		studios like this. So I have
    		an idea. The only thing not
    		under their control right now
    		is the direct emergency
    		phone line to the studio. I
    		will connect you now, and you
    		can have your chance to
    		prove your innocence to the
    		young lady directly. What do 
    		you say?
    		
    Zephyrs:	Heh, that is insipid....
    
    Jaeger:		That may be interesting. Do
    		it.
    		
    Zephyrs:	But...!
    
    Jaeger:		.....
    
    Zephyrs:	...Yes, sir...
    
    Yukito, CEO:	Myona, I'm connecting you
    		with Zephyrs. Good luck!
    		
    Myona:		Thank you!
    
    Zephyrs:	...We meet again, Myona. Or
    		what name do you go by
    		now?
    		
    Myona:		It's nice to meet you, Mr.
    		Zephyrs. I don't know who
    		you are confusing me with,
    		but I am Myona Alderan.
    		Nobody else.
    		
    Zephyrs:	Well, excuse me. And what
    		kind of evidence are you
    		going to show me today? Did
    		you find something within
    		those records?
    		
    Myona:		The Bonaparte III collided
    		with a mysterious Black
    		Frame and went through an
    		unscheduled crash landing
    		onto Mars. There were
    		survivors from this accident.
    		But you got rid of them and
    		hid the very cause of the
    		crash. That is because the
    		Black Frame was the result 
    		of your demented
    		experimentation... am I right?
    		
    Zephyrs:	You have a very vivd
    		imagination, young lady. It is
    		not that simple an affair to
    		experiment and invent 
    		weapons. Surely you have
    		evidence to support such an
    		accusation.
    		
    Myona:		...Unfortunately, the data
    		taken during the span of the
    		accident have been deleted by
    		use of a special technology.
    		
    Zephyrs:	And what would that be? This
    		is ridiculous. A special 
    		technology? It's all in the
    		presentation, isn't it? Why
    		don't you just admit that
    		there is no such evidence,
    		and that you are making all
    		of this up?
    		
    An explosion sound
    
    Zephyrs:	This noise...?
    
    Myona:		Do you know where this
    		sound is coming from?
    		
    Zephyrs:	...I would say an anti-proton
    		reactor....
    		
    Myona:		This is the sound that the
    		Black Frame was emitting
    		before the accident.... It has
    		been recorded under 52 
    		separate headings in the
    		element log... This is our
    		evidence.
    		
    Zephyrs:	Ah.... That is a little bit
    		interesting. But it goes
    		without saying that an Orbital
    		Frame is equipped with an
    		anti-proton reactor. Even if
    		the cause of the accident
    		was a collision with an OF,
    		there's really no evidence to
    		link it directly with me.
    		
    Myona:		Were you involved in the
    		research and production of
    		the Orbital Frame?
    		
    Zephyrs:	...Why would I be involved 
    		with a thing like that?!
    		
    Myona:		OK, then you were
    		researching the topic on your
    		own, were you not?
    		
    Zephyrs:	This is getting tedious! I
    		don't sanction the OF! ANd
    		that is the general consensus
    		within the UNSF!
    		
    Myona:		...I understand. But then how
    		did you know that noise came
    		from an anti-proton reactor?
    		If you have never done any
    		reasearch, how would you be 
    		able to recognize it the way
    		you did?
    		
    Zephyrs:	That's... That's common
    		knowledge!!
    		
    Myona:		I said, 'Black Frame.' But I
    		never said anything about an
    		Orbital Frame. I never said
    		anti-proton reactor, either. It
    		could easily have been an
    		LEV, or a fighter... in fact,
    		that would be more probable.
    		I played the sound for you,
    		but I know nothing else.
    		
    		Would you mind explaining the
    		terms 'anti-proton reactor'
    		and 'Orbital Frame' to the
    		viewers, as well as to
    		myself?
    		
    Zephyrs:	We... ll....
    
    Myona:		How about admitting the
    		truth? As in, 'Yes, I made the
    		Orbital Frame and caused an
    		accident. I killed the
    		survivors and blamed it on
    		the terrorists'?
    		
    Conf. Room
    
    Zephyrs:	How dare you! Hey! You listen
    		to me!!
    		
    Jaeger:		...We've cut off the circuit.
    		You've shown enough
    		disgraceful behavior today.
    		Zephyrs, you are dismissed
    		from your post.
    		
    Zephyrs:	But, General! You can't 
    		possibly take what that child
    		said at face value! That proof
    		was...
    		
    Jaeger:		This came in the mail.
    
    Zephyrs:	A Handy... PC...?
    
    Jaeger:		It's a record of the interior
    		of Bonaparte III right before
    		the accident.
    		
    Zephyrs:	It's a hoax! Footage no
    		longer is considered as
    		evidence!
    		
    Jaeger:		It's not just footage, it's
    		'Grade A Evidence Class'
    		data.
    		
    Zephyrs:	How... No!
    
    Jaeger:		This clip was made by putting
    		together two sources of
    		footage with special digital
    		standards... It is easier to
    		fake a flight recorder than
    		to retouch this material.
    		Would you like to ask the
    		court-martial if this can be
    		used against you as
    		evidence? I don't think it's 
    		necessary.
    		
    Zephyrs:	...It's only... an ingeious 
    		imitation for the purpose of
    		framing me!
    		
    Jaeger:		Mr. Irving got this in the
    		mail. It's data that contains
    		the real location of the
    		Bonaparte at the time of the
    		accident, as observed by a 
    		military base on Mars. The
    		interior visuals match its
    		external location at the time.
    		The only incongruous thing is
    		your side of the story.... I'm 
    		disappointed, Zephyrs. I
    		expected much more of you...
    		it's unfortunate.
    		
    Zephyrs:	...
    
    Irving:		Dezeele... I, too, am ready to
    		be judged. At this point...
    		
    Zephyrs:	...Judged? I'll gladly give you
    		your punishment!
    		
    Zephyrs shoots Irving
    
    Irving:		Aaaaagggghhhhhh!
    
    Jaeger:		Irving!
    
    Zephyrs shoots Jaeger
    
    Jaeger:		Ugghgh! Ze-Zephyrs... I'll get

    Ares:		Are we really going to do

    Zephyrs:	Heh heh! Pharsti! You should
    		have gone to the underworld
    		with your siblings and all the
    		others then! I'll destroy you
    		so badly that you'll never
    		have the hope of living
    		again!
    		
    Cage:		What is this guy saying?
    
    Pharsti:	Beyond comprehension. He is
    		in a state of excitement, and
    		has lost all ability to follow
    		logic.
    		
    Zephyrs:	I'll erase... everything....
    
    Cage:		Oh, no... he's not going for
    		the TV station?! We have to
    		stop him!!
    		
    After beating HarutMarut, Zephyrs reappears twice
    his previous power
    
    Zephyrs:	Don't take the HarutMarut
    		lightly! I'll roast you alive!!
    		
    After the 3rd battle
    
    Zephyrs:	Me, lose? Hah! Impossible!
    		That's right. The Animus... MY
    		Animus is invincible! Isn't that
    		right, Vale?
    		
    Cage:		Vale?... Who is that?!
    
    Pharsti:	There is nobody who fits the
    		criterion.
    		
    Zephyrs:	You! You are not Vale?! How
    		is that possible? Then... how
    		are you moving? No... I get it.
    		You took his place? Never
    		mind, it's all going to be over
    		very soon. But you! I will
    		never forgive you. NEVER!!!!
    		
    HarutMarut goes near the TV Station
    
    Pharsti:	There is abnormal energy
    		emanating from the interior
    		generator! It is running on
    		its own!
    		
    Cage:		He's going to self-destruct?
    		Oh, no! Myona!
    		
    Zephyrs:	Go away! All the things that
    		get in my way, up in flames!
    		Everything!! Ha ha ha ha
    		haah!!
    		
    Myona:		Up... in flames....

    Cage:		Yeah, it is! We got through it!
    		We made it!!
    		
    Myona:		...Yes.
    
    Ares:		Let's get out of here; it's

    		But... Ares.... I feel totally
    		lost right now.... I'm all alone
    		again.... Ares... What am I
    		supposed to do? Tell me
    		Ares....
    		
    Myona:		Come on, Cage. You're not
    		alone! You have all of us,
    		and...
    		well, er....
    		
    Cage:		...I know. I have Pharsti
    		too...
    		
    Myona:		Pharsti? Um, yeah, her too.
    		But Cage.... Listen to me.
    		
    		Whether or not Ares is here,
    		nothing can change the fact
    		that you protected lots of
    		innocent people.
    		
    		This place is sure to be more
    		peaceful. That's because of 
    		you. You should have more
    		confidence.
    		
    Cage:		...Confidence... I guess so.
    
    Myona:		Absolutely. What's the hurry?
    		Let's find our goals together.
    		I'll help.... Oh!!
    		
    Cage:		What?
    
    Myona:		Wait, stop that!
    
    Cage:		Stop what? Calm down!
    
    Myona:		Just... give me that button!
    
    Cage:		Hey.... heyyyyy!
    
    Myona:		Ow... ach! The switch.
    
    Myona seems to have fallen on top of Cage, 
    a different music plays
    
    Cage:		...
    
    Myona:		Phew... That was close.
    		Wasn't... er....
    		
    Cage:		...
    
    Myona:		...Ahem.... Um, er, heh heh.
    		Sorry. Pretty heavy, huh? I'll 
    		be going....
    		
    Cage:		Myona, you have really pretty
    		eyes.
    		
    Myona:		...Wha?
    
    Phil enters the room
    
    Phil:		Mr. Cage.... Oh! Oh!! M-M-Miss
    		Myona!? Whah, what are you
    		two doing?!
    		
    Myona:		No. No, no, no, it's not like
    		that. We weren't doing
    		anything, were we, Cage?
    		
    Phil: 		...
    
    Cage:		What happened? You came
    		here for a reason, right?
    		
    Phil:		...Please, just come to the
    		strategy room!
    		
    Mebius:		So what does that mean? I
    		don't understand it in the
    		least!
    		
    Robin:		You couldn't hear? I said
    		'fight together with them.
    		
    Myona:		What happened? Is everything
    		all right?
    		
    Warren:		There are riots going on all
    		over Mars right now.
    		
    Cage: 		Riots...?
    
    Yukito:		In a manner of speaking, we
    		defeated Earth in our actions.
    		It gave people courage and
    		hope - but at the same time,
    		it unleashed the anger
    		they've been accumulating all
    		these years...
    		
    Razma:		The other problem is that the
    		Earthlings also blame Zephyrs
    		for everything, and are not
    		apologetic.
    		
    Myona:		I understand how they must 
    		feel. But... riots...
    		
    Warren:		Anyway, casualties have been
    		reported among the civilians.
    		We have to stop them...
    		
    Robin:		That won't be necessary.
    
    Razma:		Hunh? Hey, we're having a
    		serious discussion here...
    		
    Robin:		Thanks to all of you, these
    		anti-Earth sentiments have
    		spread past the confines of
    		this county, and have
    		infiltrated the whole of Mars.
    		
    		There is no way to reverse
    		this now. You will fight
    		together with them. If you
    		join them, it will add more 
    		fuel to the fire. It is our
    		chance.
    		
    Warren:		...And the fire will turn into a
    		major catastrophe which will
    		burn the entire planet to
    		ashes... Robin, are you 
    		serious?
    		
    Robin:		Yes.
    
    Mebius:		What happened to you? This 
    		is so unlike you!?
    		
    Robin:		Unlike me? What do you know?
    		I'm... I'm.......!?
    		
    Razma:		Let's go.
    
    Warren:		Razma!
    
    Razma:		Sticking around here arguing
    		is pointless. There's nothing
    		to debate about. We're going
    		to stop them, right?
    		
    Yukito:		I agree. We're the only ones
    		who CAN stop them. I 
    		understand how they feel, but
    		doing that is not going to
    		help matters at all.
    		
    Robin:		...No. I will not allow it!
    
    Mebius:		Robin, I'm sorry, but I know
    		that Deckson would have said
    		the same. So I can't obey
    		you.
    		
    Robin:		Deckson... that's true. He
    		would have said so...
    		
    Warren:		We are indebted to you. If it
    		weren't for you, we wouldn't 
    		be here right now.
    		But individual strength never
    		wins against the strength of
    		an organization. If we let this
    		go, the flower will be picked
    		before it has a chance to 
    		bloom. The same thing almost
    		happened to us before.... You
    		were the one who taught us
    		that.
    		
    Robin:		.......
    
    Razma:		Let's go, Cage!
    
    Cage:		...Okay....

    Twede:		Are you crying, Dana?
    
    Robin:		...That'll be the end of them.
    		Are you satisfied?
    		
    Twede:		...This is work. To me, it's 
    		nothing more, and nothing
    		less.
    		
    Robin:		That's a lie. They why did you
    		tell Zephyrs about what they
    		were doing?
    		There is no reason to get in
    		their way. In fact, that was a 
    		complete misappropriation.
    		
    Twede:		...I knew I should have just
    		left then and there...
    		
    Robin:		What do you mean?
    
    Twede:		...
    
    Robin:		Twede!
    
    Twede:		...Then you wouldn't have to
    		blame yourself like this. You
    		could hate me...
    		
    Robin:		Twede, you...
    
    Twede:		...I am in a state of shock
    		myself. Until now, I would
    		never question any command.
    		But I could not abandon you.
    		Even if it meant that I had to
    		disobey orders...
    		
    Robin:		Then... why?
    
    Twede:		Tying up loose ends. With the
    		company...
    		
    Robin:		What are you.... You
    		wouldn't....
    
    A sound, something that fell
    		
    		Egh! ...T-Twede... I... can't...
    		
    Twede:		Good-bye, Dana.

    Armed Civilian:	What happened? You're the
    		last one.
    		
    Security Force:	...We had come to stop
    		you....!
    		
    Armed Civilian:	Now you shall see our anger
    		that has been building during
    		all these years of exploitation
    		and tyranny! Freedom for
    		Mars!
    		
    Security Force:	Stop! There has been
    		casualties! Wake up! Stop this
    		at once!
    		
    Armed Civilian:	Stay out of this! You
    		Earthling dog! We will never
    		rely on you for anything
    		again! Take this!
    		
    The Armed Civilian attacks the Security Force
    
    Security Force:	Ughggghhh!
    
    Armed Civilian:	Haaaahahahahah! That's what
    		happens!
    		
    Citizen A:	P-please stop! Our city is
    		going to be destroyed!
    		
    Armed Civilian:	Shut your mouth! Are you
    		siding with the Earthlings
    		too?
    		
    Citizen A:	Uh, n-no, I... I-I just came to
    		protest...
    		
    Armed Civilian:	Hmph! If you're going to say
    		thigs to dampen our
    		determination.....
    		
    Citizen A:	Whah?! WHat are you doing?!
    
    The Armed Civilian attacks Citizen A

    UNSF Soldiers arrive
    A UNSF Soldier attacks the Armed Civilian
    
    Armed Civilian:	Hunh?! It's not possible!!
    		Ugghghgh!
    		
    UNSF Soldier:	<<snicker>> ...We're doing
    		you Enders a favor by
    		running this place! What a
    		laugh... It's not your place to
    		pretend you have power! Hah!
    		Who's next?
    		
    Citizen B:	<<gasp>> Run!
    
    UNSF Soldier:	If we let them go, it'll just
    		lead to an increase in 
    		Enders.... Make an example of
    		them. I want each and every
    		one of them shot!
    		
    BIS troops arrives
    
    UNSF Soldier:	Hm?? Is that...
    
    Citizen B:	It's B-BIS!
    
    Yukito:		Damn! There have already
    		been casualties!
    		
    Armed Civilian B:Perfect timing! You guys are
    		on our side, right? Hurry up,
    		fight with us!
    		
    Warren:		Unfortunately for you, it's the
    		opposite. We came to stop 
    		you.
    		
    Armed Civilan B:What? I get it... BIS is
    		wussing out just like those
    		Earth-folk. Pathetic! We'll
    		clean both of you out!
    		
    Cage:		...Why? Why are you doing
    		this? Why do you have to
    		fight? Ares didn't die for
    		this!
    		
    		And I didn't struggle every
    		day until today so that I
    		could....see THIS! But still....
    		Why!!?!
    		
    Pharsti:	Cage... your mental condition
    		is in a state of disarray.
    		Please calm down. I am sure
    		that if you would talk with
    		them...
    		
    Cage:		...
    
    Mebius:		Cage, you need to
    		concentrate on fighting right
    		now!
    		
    Citizen B:	He-Helppp! Somebody stop
    		them before everyone.... The
    		town......!
    		
    Warren:		The first thing is to get
    		people out of here! We'll take
    		the construction LEVs and
    		approach the civilians, and
    		lead the way out of danger....
    		As for the other LEVs, well, 
    		never mind. Just destroy 
    		them! Let's get going!
    		
    Cage:		...
    
    Warren:		Cage, can you hear me?
    
    Cage:		Yeah, yeah, yeah, I heard you

    Pharsti:	...There is no response from
    		the surroundings. Switching
    		over to cautionary mode.
    		
    Cage:		...
    
    Pharsti:	Much of the city has burned,

    Cage:		...Heh....
    
    Pharsti:	Cage...?!
    
    Cage:		<<snicker>> Ha ha ha!
    
    Pharsti:	What happened, Cage?!
    
    Cage:		I should've left Zephyrs 
    		alone! I did my best to
    		protect everyone, and
    		stubbornly stuck to waht I
    		thought was right - and this
    		is the result? What a joke!
    		It's hilarious! I could never
    		do anything right... I messed
    		up everything I touched. But
    		then I met Ares, and I
    		started to understand that
    		there are things I want to
    		do, and that is possible for
    		a person to make them
    		happen... I was able to
    		believe that! And then it 
    		turns out that it's not
    		possible after all... Ares is
    		gone. I can't do anything
    		right! Ares, can you see me
    		right now? Pretty funny, huh?
    		This sucks... I've never felt 
    		like such crap! Come on,
    		Pharsti, laugh. You know how,
    		don't you? Or were you not
    		programmed to laugh?
    		
    		It's an order!! Laugh! Now!
    		
    Pharsti:	...
    
    Cage:		Laugh.... Please.... Pharsti....
    
    BIS Hideout
    
    Mebius:		Well, it's taken care of, but...
    		it doesn't feel very good.
    		
    Razma:		Hey, everything's fine! We
    		can't sit and watch if there's
    		a group of people who think
    		standing up for Mars means
    		making a random ruckus! They
    		need to be educated!
    		
    Semyl:		Ditto. Even if it's comin' from
    		you, I gotta agree witht hat
    		one.
    		
    Phil:		But... Mr. Cage didn't seem to
    		think so today.
    		
    Warren:		There are self-serving
    		groups of people who do as
    		they like and cannot be
    		controlled. Of course that's
    		not everyone, but Cage can't 
    		see it that way yet.
    		
    Yukito:		It must be a tough situation
    		for him... He lost his best
    		friend, and no longer has a
    		clear idea of what he wants 
    		to protect.
    		
    Phil:		Hm. Where's Miss Myona?
    
    Mebius:		She went to check on Cage at

    Armed Civilian:	On behalf of those who truly

    		have come to protest your

    		We command that you take
    		responsibility for your

    		Warren is taking his place
    		until his return.
    		
    Cage:		Nobody told me that!

    Cage:		...Yes.
    
    Mebius:		(Poor thing... He's in bad
    		shape...)
    		
    Razma:		Hey... Where are they?
    		Nobody's out here!
    		
    Warren:		...Stealth warfare! This can be
    		dangerous.
    		
    Razma:		Stealth... We can't see 
    		anything! What are we
    		supposed to do? There's
    		nothing we can do!!
    		
    Yukito:		Don't worry, Razma. Finally
    		the day has come! I though
    		this might happen, and
    		installed an anti-stealth sonar
    		onto everybody's frame.
    		
    Warren:		It's already installed?
    
    Yukito:		In the OFs. It's built into the
    		options module, so it's ready 
    		to go.
    		
    Mebius:		Oh, okay. So, how does it
    		work?
    		
    Yukito:		Unfortunately, it's impossible
    		to render the stealth
    		completely powerless. You
    		can, howver, find its origin
    		if you get close enoug. Here, 
    		I'll show you... I would say
    		they're somewhere... around
    		here!
    		
    Justeen forwards and reveals Armed Civilians
    
    Armed Civilian A: Imposible... The stealth has
    		been cancelled?
    		
    Armed Civilian B: Who cares! Let's get 'em!
    
    Yukito:		Like so.
    
    Armed Leader:	Rrrgh... Anti-stealth, eh? Rats!
    		All units waiting in ambush! Do
    		not make the first move! I
    		repeat, wait for them to come
    		to you, then surround and
    		attack! Don't move an inch
    		until then!
    		
    Warren:		(So that's the leader...)
    
    		OK everyone, the last one 
    		looks to be the leader.
    		They're armed, but they're
    		complete amateurs; if we get 
    		the leader, I'm sure the rest
    		of them will flee. Their plan
    		is to wait for us to 
    		approach, so proceed with
    		caution and destroy them.
    		Let's go!
    		
    Semyl:		You ready, Cage?
    
    Cage:		...Sure.
    
    COMMENCE BATTLE
    		
    When Cage destroys an Armed Civilia
    
    Cage:		Phew... Finally, one down. It
    		usually doesn't take this 
    		long...
    		
    Warren:		Have you remembered yet how
    		taxing it is to fight while
    		worrying about saving lives?
    		
    Cage:		I know.... I don't need to 
    		hear it from you!
    		
    After destroying Armed Leader
    
    Armed Leader:	Rats! This is it for this time...
    		But you won't be this lucky
    		next time! He has already
    		started to move... Freedom to
    		Mars!
    		
    Armed Civilian:	Argo? Down?
    
    Cage:		There are more?!
    
    An Armed Civilian is shot by someone
    
    ?????:		<<snicker>> Grown men
    		playing hide and seek.... If
    		this isn't humor at its
    		best.....
    		
    Cage:		V-Vjaya?!
    
    Nadia:		...It's been a long time.
    
    Cage:		Why do you...
    
    Nadia:		I don't particularly enjoy
    		being indebted to anybody. I
    		am joining this battle!
    		
    Armed Civilian:	Who do you think you are?!
    
    ?????:		...I'm borrowing this.
    
    Armed Civilian:	Yiiiii! S-s-stop it! I'm going to
    		fall! Aaaaarrrgghhhhh!
    		
    Twede takes over the Armed Civilian's mech
    
    Twede:		...Now that you have asked
    		for help, I cannot stand by
    		and watch...
    		
    Cage:		Mr. Twede?! You're a pilot?!
    
    Twede:		...Allow me to lend a hand. I
    		await your command.
    		
    Armed Civilian:	Darn... They have more
    		support coming in... This is
    		bad... Come. We'll retreat for
    		now!
    		
    BIS Hideout
    
    Mebius:		Thank goodness. By the way,
    		where's Robin? I haven't been
    		able to get in touch with
    		her.
    		
    Twde:		...I cannot disclose that 
    		information. All I can tell you
    		is that this will be our last
    		show of support as the Robin
    		Foundation.
    		
    Yukito:		What?!
    
    Twede:		As I said, I cannot disclose 
    		any further. But please do
    		not worry. I will see to it
    		personally that you can make
    		a safe escape.
    		
    Cage:		...Escape....?
    
    Mebius:		...Well, our hideout here has
    		been found out. I guess we 
    		have no choice but to get
    		away... and fast.
    		
    Razma:		...True. There's no guarantee
    		that we'll win next time,
    		especially with the one extra
    		load we're carrying now.
    		
    Cage:		Are you... talking about... me?
    
    Razma:		So you do know. Without
    		Testament, you can't do 
    		anything.
    		
    Cage:		What?!
    
    Mebius:		Razma! There's no need for 
    		that!
    
    (that's the first time I've seen Mebius' eyes open -_-;)
    
    Nadia:		...It's true. Objectively
    		speaking, your skils are
    		clearly lower than average.
    		That frame you were riding 
    		must have been constructed 
    		very well.
    		
    Twede:		...I agree.
    
    Mebius:		Twede, even you...
    
    Twede:		I have been watching you
    		since the first riot. At this
    		point, even I have more skill
    		than you do.
    		
    Cage:		...Fine! ...I've had it!!
    
    Mebius:		Cage...
    
    Cage:		Ares died... and Myona
    		probably left because she
    		was sick of me. And even
    		Pharsti...
    		
    		I'll leave this time. I can't do
    		anything here anyway... I
    		don't even like to fight! I
    		only stayed because Mr. 
    		Deckson asked me for my
    		help...
    		
    Razma:		...Yeah. Hurry up and get out
    		of here.
    		
    Semyl:		Razma!
    
    Cage:		...I don't mind. Good-bye. I'm 
    		going to get my stuff... It
    		was a short while, but thank
    		you for everything.
    		
    Mebius:		...You can just do that?
    
    Cage:		Yes.
    
    Yukito:		What are you going to do
    		from now on? Do you even
    		have a place to go? There's
    		no reason to...
    		
    Twede:		I have already spoken to
    		some people about this.
    		Arrangements are being made
    		now.
    		
    Yukito:		...Good thinking.
    
    Twede:		All I did was entertain the
    		possibility, and make the
    		necessary adjustments.
    		
    Warren:		Cage.
    
    Cage:		...Yes?
    
    Warren:		I don't know how you plan on
    		spending the rest of your
    		life, but whatever happens,
    		don't blame it on anyone else.
    		Think for yourself, and act 
    		for yourself. If you take
    		responsibility for your own
    		life, you'll become stronger.
    		
    		It's the most important thing.
    		Do it for yourself
    		
    Cage:		I can't do that. Nobody needs
    		me anymore. I won't do it.
    		
    		There is no reason I should
    		become stronger..... So
    		long....
    		
    Warren:		.........

    Cage:		...Yes, I am...?
    
    ?????:		Hm. OK. I'm Raiah. They've told
    		me to getyou out of here.
    		
    Raiah:		We're heading for Deimos
    		Spaceport.... You need to do
    		something about the way you
    		look.... Here.
    		
    Cage:		...A bag?
    
    Raiah:		Duh. Now don't lose it. It has
    		your fake ID and other 
    		papers in it. Go put on the
    		clothes that are in there. I 
    		got it from the luggage of
    		the Vacilia people, so I'm
    		sure it's the wrong size.
    		
    Cage:		...Okay...
    
    Raiah:		(...Tsk, why am I doing this??
    		...It's all Dad's fault. He
    		should've acted responsibly
    		as an adult, but he had to go
    		and make a scene like that...
    		Well, this is only a temporary

    Cage:		(...So it's good-bye Mars.... It's
    		all going to be over...)
    		
    		...
    
    
    The button plays its music
    
    Cage:		...This button... It used to be
    		a good-luck charm, but now
    		it's a keepsake... Heh....
    		Nobody cares about me. There
    		isn't a single soul who needs
    		me....
    		This is how it was meant to

    		never have been born...
    
    The button stops playing
    
    Cage:		...Hm?
    
    ?????:		Ahem.... Testing, testing.
    
    Cage:		Myona?!
    
    Myona's Voice:	I hope it's recording... Um....
    		Cage. I don't know when you
    		are going to hear this, but I
    		think that when you want to
    		listen to this it's because
    		you're going through a tough
    		time. So in the space that's
    		left on this, I've decided to
    		record a message. I hope you
    		don't mind, I know this is
    		your prized possession.
    		
    Cage:		...
    
    Myona's Voice:	...Cage. A lot has happened
    		since we first met. Other
    		people may say it hasn't
    		been that long, but for 
    		someone like me who has no
    		memory, the days I spent
    		with you are my entire life.
    		heh... Maybe that's a little
    		cheesy, but I mean it. I know
    		that things are hard for you
    		right now... But one thing
    		won't change. I'm always on
    		your side, Cage. From now on, 
    		too. So don't ever give up!
    		
    Cage:		Myona...
    
    Myona's Voice:	...And there's something else 
    		I've been meaning to say. I
    		hope you'll give me an answer
    		once you hear this...
    		
    Cage:		Myona... I....
    
    Myona's Voice:	...To me, you are....
    
    Cage:		How could I have been so
    		stupid?!
    		
    Myona's Voice:	...So there you have it. Heh,
    		heh... That was a little 
    		embarasing. Um.... This is
    		Myona, signing off. Bye.

    		You're not dressed yet... Tsk.
    		Get on with it. Don't you care
    		that all your old friends are
    		buying time for you? Hurry
    		up, we haven't got....
    		
    Cage:		...What did you say just now?
    		...Buying time...?
    		
    Raiah:		Hunh? You don't know about 
    		it? Ah, so it's like a surprise
    		party! Hah!
    		
    Cage:		What are you talking about?
    		Tell me!
    		
    Raiah:		He, hey!! Let go! Okay, okay.
    		Those rioters... somehow 
    		they're better organized than
    		anyone imagined. They've 
    		vowed to level you guys at
    		any cost. So, if you were all
    		to escape, where would be
    		the best place to go?
    		
    Cage:		Huh?
    
    Raiah:		Here! The spaceport... If you
    		leave Mars, it'll be harder
    		for them to get to you. Well,
    		at least for a little while. So
    		that's why we're in a 
    		hurry...
    		
    Cage:		(...Oh no.... I'm so sorry,

    Raiah:		<<sigh>> Good for you. Okay,
    		shall we get...
    		
    Cage:		Yes! Let's go!
    
    Raiah:		Er... Em, where are you
    		going?! Hey! Wait! If you don't
    		do as you're told, it's going

    		Shoot! Why am I so unlucky?!

    Raiah:		...Look, it's already been
    		levelled...
    		
    		(...Tsk.... What did I do to
    		deserve this... What's wrong
    		with swindling people out of
    		some petty cash once in a
    		while... I'm Raiah, Mars' #1
    		Broker...!)
    		
    		Well, that was a waste of 
    		time.... So what's the plan?
    		Where do I get to chauffeur
    		you next?
    		
    Cage:		Thank you. This is fine right
    		here.
    
    Raiah:		Huh? Right HERE...?
    
    Cage:		I'll be fine. They're alive, I
    		know it! I will go and look 
    		for them myself.
    		
    Raiah:		...So you're saying this is
    		good? So the contract has
    		been fulfilled?
    		
    Cage:		Yes.
    
    Raiah:		Oh, okay. Great. By the way,
    		those clothes look great on
    		you. It's a little farewell gift
    		from me...Good luck!
    		
    Cage, now wearing a helmet
    
    Cage:		Thank you! Bye!
    
    
    Raiah leaves riding the AFV
    
    Cage:		...Where are you.....
    
    		(No, there's no way that they
    		would lose to them that
    		easily.... After all, we've been
    		through much harder
    		situations in the past! They
    		can't be ended like this!)
    		
    Armed Civilians show themselves from stealth mode.
    
    Armed Civilian A: ...There was something moving 
    		over there!
    		
    Cage:		(Oh no!)
    
    Armed Civilian B: Hey, look! It's a human!
    
    Armed Civilian A: Hm? It's just a kid. ...Who
    		cares?
    		
    Cage:		(...These people did this?!)
    
    Armed Civilian B: In that case, I'll take him.
    		It'll serve as a good example
    		for them, since they're not
    		coming out. heh heh heh...
    		Happy hunting....!
    		
    Cage:		(Uh-oh. I'm done....)
    
    Someone shoots Armed Civilian B
    
    Armed Civilian B: What!? Ugghghgh!
    
    Cage:		Huh...?!
    
    Mebius:		<<sigh>> Who's next? I can't

    Cage:		Ms. Mebius!!
    
    Armed Civilian A: Finally, you show yourself! I'd
    		be happy to fight you!
    		
    Mebius:		...Really, sometimes I just
    		don't know what to do with

    Cage:		Myona...recorded a message

    Warren:		Myona? And what?
    
    Cage:		I realized that Razma had
    		said all that stuff just so I 
    		would run away and be safe...
    		It made me think. I was only

    Ned:		I am immortal!!!!!!
    
    ??????:		...He who shamelessly comes
    		forth after having been

    Ned:		Wh-who are you?!
    
    Justeen appears
    
    Yukito:		That is of no import to scum 
    		like you!
    		
    Cage:		Mr. Yukito!!
    
    Yukito:		Thanks, Cage! I was going for
    		the mysterious feel, but he
    		may as well know!
    		
    Mebius:		Okay, okay, okay. This isn't
    		an audition for a sitcom!
    		
    Ned:		Rrrgh... Are you MOCKING
    		me!!!
    		
    Ned drives his Ravana next to Cage
    
    Ned:		Heh heh heh... You no longer
    		have the Animus, eh? ...You're
    		over, I'll squash you like a
    		bug!
    		
    Cage:		(Darn... If only Pharsti were
    		here now... Whenever I called
    		her, she would always come
    		to my rescue!)
    		
    		...Pharsti.... Pharstiiiiii!!!
    
    Someone attacks Ned
    		
    Ned:		Ow, Ouch! Wh, whaaa!?
    
    Pharsti:	...Just in time.
    
    Cage:		Pharsti! It's really you! Heh...
    		Ha ha ha!! Is this a dream?
    		
    Pharsti:	Negative. This is reality. Cage,
    		it is I.
    		
    Cage:		And Myona? She's with you
    		too, right?
    		
    Pharsti:	...Unfortunately, she is not
    		with me. When I rebooted,
    		there was nobody in the
    		surrounds.
    		
    Cage:		Oh....
    
    Ned:		Ach! Animus...! It's just as
    		well. I'll have my revenge!
    		You'll see....
    		
    Ned's troops, the Armed Men (Martians!), surround the base
    
    Pharsti:	Shall we take care of the 
    		mess in front of us first?
    		
    Cage:		O-Okay!
    
    Vjaya appears
    
    Nadia:		...I will help also.
    
    Cage:		Ms. Nadia!
    
    Ned:		What's this?! You get dumped
    		by a man and you become
    		this desperate?
    		
    Nadia:		...I choose not to waste
    		words on the unworthy.
    		
    Ned:		Rrrrgghhh! I'll shut you up in
    		no time!!
    		
    COMMENCE BATTLE
    
    Before Cage attacks Ned
    
    Cage:		What is that machine... I've
    		never seen it before.
    		
    Ned:		Heh heh... Look at her!
    		BAHRAM's the real deal. With
    		this, we'll be able to put
    		Earth down for good!
    		
    Cage:		BAHRAM...? What?! Put Earth
    		down... Don't you work for
    		Earth yourself?!
    		
    Ned:		In this world, the stronger
    		one is the right one. You
    		should learn it ain't easy
    		fighting for a cause just
    		because you like it.
    		
    Cage:		You... betrayed Earth?
    
    Ned:		They betrayed ME! They tried
    		to destroy me!! When I was in
    		a bad spot, those other guys
    		picked me up.... With this new
    		body, I...I'm going to have
    		my revenge! Heh heh!!
    		
    Cage:		Your new... body...?
    
    After defeating Ned
    
    Ned:		Ow! HEY! My entire body...
    		Owwww! Dang!! My... my new 
    		body!
    		
    Cage:		What's that?!
    
    Ned's icon shows a brain with tubes as support
    
    Ned:		<<gurgle>> Don't look!
    
    Cage:		Is that... Ned? What is 
    		happening?
    		
    Pharsti:	It seems that the visuals that
    		were being communicated until
    		now were CGs... This is his
    		true physical state.
    		
    Cage:		What... This can...! This can be
    		done??!
    		
    Ned:		Quiet! Quiet, quiet, quietttt!!!
    		You ruined my new body...
    		That's IT!!
    		
    Ned restores health and increases in spirit
    
    Ned:		<<growl>> Take this!!
    
    Cage:		He's recuperated already?!
    		...Is he invincible?
    		
    Twede appears
    
    Twede:		...Perfect. I shall take it from
    		here. please evacuate.
    		
    Cage:		Mr. Twede?! What do you
    		mean... With that frame?!
    		That's impossible!
    		
    Twede:		I did not expect your return,
    		but that is fine. At any rate,
    		please go now.
    		
    Cage:		Then, you should come with
    		us...
    		
    Twede:		...I've said this before. I will 
    		support your escape to the
    		best of my ability.
    		
    Pharsti:	Cage, massive quantities of
    		explosive have been detected
    		in Mr. Twede's frame. I posit
    		that he is going to delay the
    		actions of the enemy with the
    		explosion....
    		
    Cage:		What! He's going to
    		self-destruct? Is it true?
    		
    Twede:		What is wrong? I will be fine.
    		I have already taken care of 
    		all of your needs from this
    		point forth. You no longer 
    		have a hideout to which you
    		can retreat. There is no
    		reason for you to be here
    		any longer. So please - leave
    		now.
    		
    Cage:		No. How can I be happy being
    		saved at someone else's 
    		expense?
    		
    Twede:		My expense? No, you have
    		gotten it all wrong. This is
    		the way I do things.
    		
    Cage:		But... I can't let it happen!
    
    The level from the hideout crumbles, creating
    an opening. A ship appears
    
    Cage:		Wha! What?!
    
    Robin is riding the ship
    
    Robin:		Cage is right.... Didn't I tell
    		you that I don't want any
    		victims? I will not allow this
    		kind of selfish behavior!
    		
    Cage:		Ms.... Ms. Robin!
    
    Robin:		How have you been, Cage?
    
    		(The right hand of Testament
    		has changed... Is that what 
    		they mean about OFs and
    		their 'maturation'?)
    		
    Twede:		Dana! How did you... And what
    		is that ship.....?
    		
    Phil is with Ms. Robin
    
    Phil:		Cage... You're back!
    
    Cage:		Phil! ...Everyone's okay! What...
    		What is that you're riding?
    		
    Pharsti:	That would be a
    		transportation spacecraft. It
    		looks to be an old cargo
    		ship.
    		
    Robin:		Hee, hee... Even you didn't
    		forsee this happening, did
    		you? When we got buried
    		after the attack, I was 
    		worried... But I got it to
    		move somehow. Not a second
    		too soon...
    		
    		Because a person, who shall
    		remain unnamed, locked me
    		up....I almost didn't make it on
    		time.
    		
    Twede:		...
    
    Robin:		...Twede. You said that you 
    		could never leave me, right?
    		
    		But it looks like you were
    		about to leave me and go off
    		on your own. Who is going to
    		be my secretary when you're
    		gone? Are you telling me to
    		organize my own files? That
    		prospect doesn't make me 
    		happy at all.
    		
    Twede:		...
    
    Robin:		Just like Cage, I found my
    		own path. I'm completely
    		confident that I'm doing the
    		right thing. But I can't go
    		down that path by myself. It
    		has to be together with all of
    		them...and you. So...
    		
    Twede:		....I agree. The only person
    		who can handle being your
    		secretary in this entire
    		galaxy is myself.
    		
    Robin:		Hey, I'm not that bad.
    
    Twede:		...Well...
    
    Robin:		<<giggle>>
    
    Ned:		Heeeeeyyyyyyyy!! I'm still
    		here!!
    		
    Twede:		...
    
    Twede maneuvers towards Ned
    
    Robin:		Twede!? Don't do it!
    
    Cage:		Mr. Twede!!
    
    Twede's mech explodes, explosion surrounds
    Ned's Ravana
    
    Ned:		...Whoa... WHOA! Whaddaya think
    		you're doing?! You got luck
    		this time... But I swear I'll
    		get you next time! Choose
    		your coffins before you see
    		me again!!
    		
    Ravana disappears
    
    Cage:		Mr. Twede! Why... Why did you
    		have to die!
    		
    Twede (no LEV) is right next to Cage's Testament
    
    Twede:		...Sorry to ruin your moment,
    		but as you can see, I am 
    		very much alive.
    		
    Cage:		Hunh? How... good!
    
    Twede:		I escaped immediately before
    		the explosion.... In fact, this
    		was my plan from the very
    		beginning.
    		
    Cage:		Ohhh....
    
    Robin:		...You've never been a good
    		liar.
    		
    Twede:		I can say the same about
    		you.
    		
    Robin:		<<giggle>>
    
    Twede:		...There are still more
    		opponents. Good luck with the
    		rest of them.
    		
    Cage:		Thank you!
    
    RobinL		The Saoshyant is not made
    		for battle, so I'll stand back
    		also. Good luck!

    |BIS Hideout               \____________________
    
    
    Cage:		This is the interior of the
    		ship? It kinda reminds me of
    		our hideout....
    		
    Robin:		I wonder why. This IS the
    		hideout, Cage.
    		
    Semyl:		Wha! How's that?
    
    Robin:		As our hideout, we were
    		using a fourth generation
    		model freight ship buried
    		underground.
    		
    Razma:		Whoa! No way! Our hideout
    		was a ship?!
    		
    Warren:		But it was buried
    		underground for so long.
    		When was it maintained
    		enough for it to actually be
    		capable of flight?
    		
    Robin:		It was our plan from the
    		very beginning. Deckson and I
    		had kept it a secret. I'm just
    		glad that we made it on time.
    		
    Deckson:	It's called 'Saoshyant'.
    
    Yukito:		'Reincarnated Savior', eh?
    
    Cage:		Mr. Deckson! You're up!
    
    Deckson:	Yes... Right after you left.
    		Sorry I worried you.
    		
    Cage:		No, not at all. I....
    
    Deckson:	I heard all about it. Forgive
    		Razma,will you? He was
    		thinking of you when he said
    		all those mean things. He
    		meant no...
    		
    Cage:		No, I was in the wrong. I was 
    		only thinking of myself, and
    		being selfish... I'm really
    		sorry.
    		
    Twede:		I do hate to interrupt, but...
    		There will be no point in this 
    		escape if we do not hurry to
    		one of the hiding points I
    		outlined earlier.
    		
    Robin:		OK. Go Saoshyant!

    TwedeL		...It looks as though the

    Robin:		<<giggle>> Don't tell anyone.
    		It's an insider secret.

    Semyl:		C-C-C-Cage!
    
    Cage:		What, Semyl? Why are you so
    		flustered... You looked like
    		Phil just now.
    		
    Semyl:		Never mind that! Look! Ares...
    		Ares is on TV!!

    Vale, who looks very much like Ares is on TV
    
    Vale:		Fellow Martians! Now is the
    		time to unite! Earthlings like
    		Zephyrs have been ignoring
    		our blood, sweat, and tears...
    		and they find the nerve to

    Citizen A:	Freedom to Mars!
    
    Citizen B:	Freedom to Mars!
    
    Cage:		...It can't be... I don't believe 
    		it!
    		
    Semyl:		Right? I just don't get it!
    
    Robin:		...His name is Vale Shatner.
    		He's the leader of the armed
    		civilian group fighting for
    		Mars' independence.
    		
    Semyl:		Vale Shatner? I don't know,
    		man, he looks just like Ares
    		to me!
    		
    Cage:		There's no mistake... That's 
    		Ares! But... Ares being behind
    		the riots...? Why...?
    		
    Twede:		Which would mean that it was
    		he who organized the attack
    		on the hideout. It would also
    		make sense that they would
    		know about the placement of 
    		the radar.
    		
    Yukito:		Stop! We can't be sure just
    		yet...
    		
    Phil enters
    
    Phil:		Oh my...! I can't make contact 
    		with Mr. Razma and Mr. 
    		Warren, who went out to
    		patrol the area!
    		
    Deckson:	They're still not back?! They
    		left a while ago, didn't they?
    		
    Semyl:		That idiot... Why now?
    
    Robin:		Ares or Vale... I wonder
    		which one is his true
    		identity...
    		
    Cage:		........
    
    Deckson:	It's routine for Razma to	
    		meander, but if Warren if 
    		with him...
    		
    Mebius:		So Phil, Warren went with him
    		because he was worried...
    		Right?
    		
    Phil:		Yes, that is the case.
    
    Semyl:		...That idiot... Even got the ole
    		man involved...
    		
    Deckson:	Phil, Razma went to check out
    		the 'abnormal radar reaction'
    		that you detected, right?
    		
    Phil:		Yes, since there is a
    		possibility that it was coming
    		from the stealth frame...
    		
    Deckson:	Okay, something may have 
    		happened. Let's go and find
    		them.
    		
    Mebius:		Deckson, you're in no shape 
    		to go out and fight. You stay
    		here.
    		
    Deckson:	But...No, you're right. I may
    		do more harm than good.....
    		Fine.
    		OK. Iwill stay here, and find
    		out as much as I can about
    		Ares.
    		
    Mebius:		Sounds like a plan.
    
    		(If something happens to him
    		again, who'll listen to all my
    		complaining?)
    		
    Robin:		I'll take the Edge.
    
    Twede:		What are you saying! That is
    		too dangerous...!
    		
    Mebius:		Oh? I never took you to be a
    		chauvinist. Ifyou tie her
    		down too much, she'll dump
    		you, you know.
    		
    Twede:		Whah! What are you talking
    		about...?
    		
    Robin:		<<giggle>> It'll be fine. I'm 
    		hardly the type to act 
    		impulsively, unlike someone
    		else I know, I'm worried
    		about those two, let's go!
    		
    Twede:		.......
    
    ##### Scene 18: Dark Half #####
    
    Nadia:		It seems that those two had
    		headed toward this area.
    		
    Yukito:		Nobody's here... Let's search
    		the entire area!
    		
    Cage:		......
    
    Yukito:		Cage, I have no idea what
    		Ares is trying to do. But... If, 
    		hypothetically, you're placed
    		on a position which you 
    		need to fight him.... In that
    		case, can you do it?
    		
    Cage:		I don't know.... I'd like to
    		revel in the fact that he is
    		alive for now.
    		
    Yukito:		Okay. Well, don't worry about
    		it all alone. You're not the
    		only one who believes in him.
    		
    Cage:		Yes. Thank you.
    
    Mebius:		Now, we have to find those
    		two...
    		
    Semyl:		Razmaaaa! How about
    		responding, idiottttt!!!
    		
    Phil:		I'm going to look over there.
    
    Mebius:		What?! Oh, Phil!
    
    Phil goes off
    
    Mebius:		(There he goes... I hope he's 
    		going to be okay.)
    	
    Armed Civilian Frames appear
    
    Mebius:		That's... a stealth frame!
    
    Armed Civilian: Tsk! Caught by the sonar...
    		Guess we got too close...
    		
    Cage:		You... you must be one of
    		them who took our hideout
    		away from us!
    		
    Armed Civilian:	Get them, just like the other
    		two... Prepare it! We've got
    		permission from Him!
    		
    Cage:		The other two... So you have
    		Mr. Warren and Razma? Where
    		did you put them?
    		
    		(And who is 'Him'? ...Could it
    		be?)
    		
    Floating Frames arrive
    
    Cage:		?!
    
    		(What is that frame?! It's 
    		floating...?)
    		
    Armed Civilian:	If you want to know about
    		your friends, you'll have to
    		destroy us first! Go!
    		
    		Raptors!
    		
    Cage:		Oh yeah?... Well, I guess I'll
    		just have to take you up on
    		your suggestion!
    		
    Pharsti:	Cage, please be careful. I
    		sense that there are unseen 
    		enemies lurking!
    		
    Cage:		I can only see them... so
    		there must be a lot of them 
    		hiding.
    		
    Yukito:		No worries. We have the
    		'anti-stealth sonar.' Do the
    		same thing as last time. Are
    		you ready?
    		
    
    COMMENCE BATTLE
    
    After a turn
    
    Cage: 		Where are those two...? I
    		hope Phil has found some hint 
    		as to their whereabouts...
    		
    a beeping sound, or something else
    
    Cage:		(...What's that sound?!)
    
    ????:		Heh heh... You've gotten much
    		stronger... You're totally
    		different from the Cage I
    		knew.
    		
    Cage:		Wh-Who's there!
    
    The Black Frame, Iblis, appears
    
    Cage:		(That's... I've seen it before!
    		No, please, don't let it be...!
    		It's the Black Frame!)
    		
    ????:		<<cackle>> Long time no
    		see!
    		
    Cage:		Oh no... That voice...
    
    Ares:		Cage, if you had just left
    		Mars you wouldn't have had 
    		to get hurt... But you wanted
    		this, didn't you?
    		
    Cage:		A... res...! Is it... you?!
    
    Ares:		Testament... You have no use
    		for that frame. Hand it over.
    		
    Cage:		Ares, I saw you on TV... It's
    		not true, is it? ...I believe in
    		you! This is... some awful
    		mistake, isn't it?
    		
    Ares:		Believe in me? <<cackle>>
    		You say some funny things
    		sometimes. All of you did
    		exactly as I wanted... I 
    		should probably thank you
    		before I crush all of you.
    				
    		'Thank you...' There. THanks
    		to all of you, my job was
    		made infinitely easier...
    		
    Cage:		S-So the Ares on TV... That's
    		the real Ares?!
    		
    Ares:		It's so typical of you to
    		realize now, when it no
    		longer makes any difference.
    		
    Cage:		...Ares is my friend. You said
    		that you were my friend! That
    		was all a lie?! All of it... It
    		was all an act?!
    		
    Ares:		Yeah. Did you figure it out
    		yet? I was the one who
    		directed Iblis and sank
    		Bonaparte III!
    		
    Cage:		No...!
    
    Ares:		That ship had accepted money
    		from Zephyrs to smuggle
    		secret items between Earth
    		and Mars. When I found out, I
    		changed my name to Ares,
    		and jumped at the chance to
    		expose Zephyrs' crimes... and
    		to exact my revenge upon
    		him!
    		
    Cage:		Revenge...?
    
    Ares:		Yeah. It would be too merciful
    		to simply kill Zephyrs. He
    		needed to suffer...
    		
    		In exchange for robbing my
    		innocent parents of their
    		lives, I will see to it that he
    		regrets being born! If he
    		hadn't initiated those
    		experiments, neither father
    		nor mother would have had to 
    		die.
    		
    		Pharsti and I wouldn't be
    		trapped in these bodies
    		either.
    		
    Cage:		These... bodies...? Pharsti?
    		Ares, what are you saying?
    		
    Ares:		...My name is Vale Shatner....
    		That's one of them, anyway.
    		
    		The other is Subject 478 -
    		that's the name Zephyrs gave
    		me!
    		
    Cage:		Subject?! So Zephyrs used
    		you as a subject in his
    		experiments too?
    	
    Ares:		Heh. Exactly.
    
    Cage:		Ares... Your revenge cost the
    		lives of innocent passengers...
    		How many hundred lives are
    		you responsible for?! I don't 
    		know what kind of hardships
    		you've been through... but
    		that's the wrong thing to do!
    		
    Ares:		The wrong thing to do, is it?
    		As if you would understand
    		the feelings that led me to do
    		it... Besides, the one who
    		added the final touches on
    		the Bonaparte deal was
    		Zephyrs, wasn't it?
    		
    		Anyway, it makes no 
    		difference to me who died on
    		that ship. Heh heh! You should
    		died along with the rest
    		of them. It's too bad.... A real
    		shame....
    		
    Cage:		How can you say that...?
    
    Ares:		Heh, there he goes again. You
    		know, that's what disgusts me 
    		about you. 'I don't want to
    		hurt anyone...' 'I want
    		everyone to like me...'
    		...Meanwhile, you can't do
    		anything on your own. You
    		make others take
    		responsibility for you...
    		You're burried so deep in your
    		own hypocrisy that you can't
    		even muster the courage to
    		do anything on your own.
    		Pure cowardice. Don't you
    		agree... Philbright?
    		
    Phil appears in Grafficane, an OF
    
    Phil:		...By all means. I couldn't 
    		agree more, Ares.
    		
    Cage:		Phil! What are you doing! And
    		that frame... What...?!
    		
    Phil:		I've quit BIS... From today,
    		I'm working with Ares!
    		
    Cage:		Why! How come you... Why?!
    
    Phil:		Why?! I got sick and tired of
    		being with you! Always making
    		others take responsibility for
    		you, but still getting all the
    		attention and all the praise.
    		And you were eating it right
    		up!
    		
    Cage:		Why... are you saying this?!
    
    Phil:		Ares listened to me. He was
    		interested in what I had to
    		say. And he understands me!
    		
    Ares:		Cage... That's all there is to
    		it. Give the Animus to Phil.
    		
    Cage:		Ares, wait! I still can't
    		believe it! You can't be my
    		enemy!
    		
    Ares:		Heh heh... I guess I'll just
    		have to make it painfully
    		obvious, then. How's this?
    		
    Dreizehn and Durandal II appear on both sides of Grafficane
    
    Razma:		...Uygg... Sorry.... I messed...
    		up...
    		
    Warren:		.....
    
    Ares:		Go ahead, Phil.
    
    Phil:		...As you wish.
    
    Cage:		Phil! Don't do it! You're not
    		actually... Stop!!
    		
    Phil:		I have power now... The weal
    		can't say anything to the 
    		strong. Did you know that?
    		
    Phil attacks Dreizehn
    
    Razma:		Ugggghhhhhhhh!!
    
    Then Phil goes for Durandal II
    
    Warren:		Eghghg! Aaaarrrggghhhhh!
    
    Cage:		Stop! Phil, please stop!
    
    Phil:		Why don't you make me?!
    		Prove to me that you're 
    		stronger than me!
    		
    Cage:		...
    
    Ares:		I like that expression. Wish
    		Myona were here to see it.
    		
    Cage:		Myona? You know where she 
    		is? Is Myona okay?!
    		
    Ares:		If you want to see her, you 
    		should follow me. That is, if
    		you can. So long, Cage.....
    		
    Ares leaves		
    
    Cage:		Ares!
    
    Pharsti:	...Cage.
    
    Caeg:		I know... We can't go after
    		Ares now.... We have to get
    		those two first...
    		
    		(Phil... I guess there's no
    		choice...)
    		
    Phil:		Come on, Cage.... Get over
    		here!... If you don't hurry, I'll
    		get rid of these guys first.
    		
    Cage:		Let's go, Pharsti...
    
    Pharsti:	The unseen enemies have 
    		been quiet. It seems they are
    		planning to wait in ambush
    		until somebody arrives.
    		
    Cage:		But... We have to save those
    		two. Proceed cautiously,
    		Pharsti!
    		
    When Phil is about to attack Cage
    
    Cage:		Phil! Let those two go! We 
    		were all a team!
    		
    Phil:		A team? You want to hear
    		something funny? Ares is not
    		the only one who was using
    		you. Robin was using BIS for
    		her own purposes also.
    		
    Cage:		What are you talking about?!
    
    Phil:		Robin is actually from NUT...
    		In other words, she is an
    		industry spy. We were
    		fighting for Mars, but that
    		was not the case for her!
    		She was only using us so
    		that the rich could collect 
    		more money!
    
    Cage:		That's....
    
    Robin:		Phil... How could...
    
    Cage:		Is it true? Ms. Robin!
    
    Robin:		.......
    
    Cage:		Ms. Robin! Why don't you say
    		something!
    		
    Phil:		...You and I have both been
    		used for different purposes
    		all our lives!
    		
    Cage:		No....
    
    Phil:		<<giggle>> ...A TEAM....
    		There's no such thing!
    		
    Phil attacks Razma and Warren with full power
    
    Cage:		Phil!
    
    Phil:		I no longer want any
    		superficial trust or
    		friendships... All I want to
    		see is skill... Show me.... Show 
    		me what you can do!
    		
    After beating Phil:
    
    Phil:		Rgh... That's nothing!
    
    Cage:		Phil, haven't we done wenoug?
    		Why do we have to fight?
    			
    Phil:		Quiet! I thought at first that
    		I could be friends with you!
    		But I was wrong!
    		Why? You didn't do anything!
    		The only thing was that you
    		had a good frame... that's all!
    		But everyone liked you and
    		praised you.... Why!?
    		(glaring at Cage)
    		I worked much harder than
    		you did! But nobody noticed
    		my efforts. Why!
    		
    Cage:		Phil...
    
    Phil:		So I'm going to prove it once
    		and for all! I am going to
    		prove my worth, on an OF,
    		just like you!
    		
    		I know I'm stronger...!
    		Because I'm capable of taking
    		a life!
    
    		(Because I even... took
    		Father's... with these two
    		hands...!)
    		
    Deckson's Voice: Phil! What are you thinking!?
    		Stop that at once!
    		
    Cage:		The radio? Mr. Deckson!
    
    Phil:		Mr.... Deckson...
    
    Deckson's Voice: Phil, have you forgotten? I
    		am always watching you! I will
    		be looking over you from now
    		on too! Stop this stupidity!
    		Now... get out of that frame!
    		
    Phil:		Deckson... I... I can't. It's too
    		late.
    		
    Deckson's Voice: It's never too late... Once
    		you've decided to do
    		something, that's when it
    		starts! Come on! Come over
    		here!
    		
    Phil:		...Cage. I'll stop for today....
    		But next time I'll crush you!
    		
    Deckson's Voice: Phil!
    
    Phil:		Good-bye, Deckson.
    
    Phil leaves
    
    Caeg:		...Phil.
    
    		(Ares... Myona... What is going
    		to become of us...)
    		
    Pharsti:	Cage, vital signs have been
    		recorded at the site where
    		Razma's and Warren's frames
    		were located! They should be
    		injured... We must hurry!
    		
    Cage:		Really?! Okay!

    Semyl enters
    
    Semyl:		Razma! Razma?! Hey, Ms.
    		Mebius! Is Razma OK?
    		
    Mebius:		He just came in now... I don't
    		know.
    		
    Cage:		...Razma.
    
    Semyl:		...Razma.
    
    		(I'm so, sooo stupid.... Now I
    		realize? Nah, I knew it all
    		along. I always knew who was
    		important to me...)
    		
    Mebius:		Semyl...
    
    		(...?! Er!)
    		
    Semyl:		Razma... Don't die on me! You
    		die and you won't be able to
    		feel up Sis anymore!
    		
    Mebius:		...He is.
    
    Semyl:		Hunh?
    
    Mebius:		This hand that's on my butt...
    		That's Razma, isn't it?
    		
    Razma:		(Heh... It's good to be alive.)
    
    Semyl:		...Ms. Mebius, would you be so
    		kind as to hand me that 
    		hammer?
    		
    Mebius:		Of course... Do it for me too.
    
    Semyl:		One... Two...
    
    Semyl hits Razma with a hammer
    
    Razma:		Yiiiiiiiiii!!
    
    Warren:		...It never ends.
    
    Yukito:		Pops! What, you were playing
    		dead too?
    		
    Warren:		I just wasn't talking.
    
    Yukito:		...It's not funny...
    
    Warren:		...Anyway, we made it. Even
    		though we walked right into
    		the trap... I can't believe I
    		fell for it.
    		
    Semyl:		You idiot! I was all worried...
    
    Razma:		Come on, calm down.
    		Everyone's fine, and...
    		
    Semyl kicks Razma
    
    Razma:		Ou... ch.... Semyl...
    
    Semyl:		You got any idea what you
    		done did?! It ain't only you.
    		The ole man, and everyone
    		else was placed in danger!
    		And then you... You idiot!
    		
    Razma:		.....
    
    Semyl:		You got nothin' to say?!
    
    Razma:		.....
    
    Semyl:		Why you all quiet?!
    
    Razma:		...So are you over Ares now?
    
    Semyl:		Huh? ...What you talkin'
    		'bout?
    		
    Razma:		Don't pretend you don't 
    		know... What, you think I don't
    		know that you have a crush
    		on him?
    
    Semyl:		Wh, Huh?!?
    
    Mebius:		...I guess it's because he's
    		the atypically sensitive male
    		that he has all these
    		misunderstandings, and that
    		he's prone to run after
    		anything in a skirt.
    		
    Razma:		Misunderstandings...?
    
    Semyl:		You thought I had a thing for
    		Ares?!
    		
    Razma:		W-well, didn't you...?
    
    Semyl:		Well, he's good lookin', good
    		eye candy, but I never
    		wanted him as a boyfriend or
    		nothin'....
    
    Razma:		...Oh. Well then.
    
    Semyl:		...Hm. And? Why you askin' me
    		'bout these things, hmmm?
    		Hmmm???
    		
    Razma:		...Just 'cause.
    
    Semyl:		Hey, why? Hey. HEY!
    
    Razma:		...You know why I'm asking.
    
    Semyl:		Nope. I don't get it. Tell
    		meeee.
    		
    Razma:		...Oh yeah! Where's the Boss?
    		Cage?
    		
    Cage:		He's talking to Ms. Robin and
    		the others right now...
    		
    Mebius:		...That's right. We need an
    		explanation as to what Phil
    		was talking about earlier....
    		But... I never thought that he
    		felt that way about you.... I'm
    		partly responsible for that.
    		
    Cage:		Ares... and Phil... I never
    		expected it to be like this.
    		
    Razma: 		........
    
    Semyl:		Cage, don't sweat it too much.
    		You left once too, but ya
    		came back, you know what I'm
    		sayin'? Maybe Phil and Ares'll
    		change their minds too. You
    		never know 'bout these
    		things.
    		
    Cage:		I guess...
    
    Semyl:		(Man... I hope that happens...)
    
    Deckson enters (weird, it says Deckson's voice, but
    the door opened)
    
    Deckson's Voice: Sorry to keep you all waiting.
    		I'm glad you two are okay....
    		Now, onto Ms. O'Connell.
    		
    Robin:		...Wait. I'd rather explain
    		myself.
    		
    Yukito:		Ms. O'Connell. I though you
    		were the sole investor of the
    		Robin Foundation. As it turns
    		out, NUT was behind this...
    		were you really tryingto
    		trick us?
    		
    Mebius:		Were we your guinea pigs, so
    		you could collect data? Or
    		were you planning on owning
    		us like pets, and manipulating
    		us for the company's profit?
    		
    Robin:		....
    
    Twede:		Perhaps I should explain....
    
    Warren:		...Why aren't you saying
    		anything? So it's true... You 
    		ARE....
    
    Robin:		Aaaaaargh! Quiettttt!
    
    Mebius:		R-Robin?
    
    Robin:		What do you expect from me!
    		Jeez! I do all this for you...
    		The higher-ups caution me,
    		and Mr. Black Frame here
    		gives me attitude.... But even
    		then, I did my best! You don't
    		know what I went through!
    		
    		Manipulate you?! How have 
    		you been manipulated? You
    		won't listen to a word I have
    		to say anyway! The NUT?? I
    		left them!
    		
    Deckson:	...R... Robin?!
    
    Robin:		(Uh-oh... Now I've done it. This
    		is not my strong suit.)
    		
    		<<sigh>>.... Yes, it's true... I
    		was a NUT agent... until a few 
    		days ago.
    		
    Warren:		...Tell us everything from the
    		beginning.
    		
    Robin:		It's not too far from what
    		Mebius said. NUT, or 'Neredum
    		Universal Technolgoy,' as you
    		all probably already know, is
    		the largest manufacturer of
    		LEVs on Mars - a huge
    		conglomerate. You would not
    		believe the number of
    		different sections they have
    		there. I was in the
    		'Information Department,
    		Section 8.'
    
    Razma:		Hey, cool.
    
    Robin:		It may sound that way, but
    		Section 8 was the shabbiest
    		part of the entire
    		organization. I was sent
    		there initially because I
    		caused some trouble within
    		the company.
    
    Warren:		For the shabbiest part of the
    		organization, they sure gave
    		us a lot of money.
    		
    Robin:		Expenses for information
    		research don't need to be
    		documented. Besides.
    		
    Cage:		Besides?
    
    Robin:		There's the fruits of my
    		personal labor.
    		
    Yukito:		So, what made you want to
    		help us out?
    		
    Robin:		Danger Aversion/Prevention
    		Program J-38.
    		
    Razma:		What is THAT?
    
    Robin: 		If NUT were a person, it
    		would be a giant. WHen a
    		body gets that big, as a
    		corporation, its defenses
    		against accidents are
    		compromised. In a manner of
    		explanation: once the
    		brain receives the message, you
    		have to wait for the command
    		to be given... And in that
    		span of time, a scratch could
    		deteriorate so badly as to
    		become a life-threatening
    		wound.
    		
    Deckson:	So you need people near the
    		site of the problem to take
    		care of things immediately,
    		kind of like white blood cells.
    		
    Robin:		...Exactly. J-38 was to NUT
    		what leukocytes or platelets
    		are to the human body...
    		
    		Whenever there was an
    		episode, they would clean
    		things up immediately, and
    		cover the wound if
    		necessary. The Robin
    		Foundation, as well as many
    		other similar groups that
    		have been set up all over
    		Mars, acted as an 'immune
    		system' for the company.
    		
    Warren:		Ah... So people like you would
    		extend their influence like so,
    		and direct the masses to act
    		in a way profitable to NUT.
    		Even if one of the units made
    		an error, the responisbility
    		would not even reach NUT,
    		and there would be no risk
    		of corporate secrets leaking
    		out into the open. If 
    		something happened, they
    		could easily cut that unit off.
    		But until then, anything goes.
    		
    Robin:		That's not all. You had
    		another role on top of that.
    		
    Razma:		As monitors for new parts on
    		OFs and LEVs?
    		
    Robin:		Precisely. You see the full
    		picture now, don't you? I did
    		collect some data on
    		Testament... but in the end, I
    		didn't get very much. I
    		couldn't get to the point
    		where you would do what I
    		told you to do, and in the
    		end, they ended up spending
    		money on you and didn't get
    		much in return.
    		
    Mebius:		So at that riot the other
    		day... That was why you were
    		acting strange...
    		
    Robin:		As a Martian company, it is
    		favorable for NUT when
    		anti-terrestrial sentiments
    		are high.... That, and also....
    		
    		I was curious to see if all of
    		you, who I had already begun
    		to take a personal interest
    		in, would listen to me in that
    		kind of situation.... And the
    		result was dismal...
    		
    Deckson:	Everyone, Ms. O'Connell has...
    		faced off with NUT a number
    		of times on our behalf, not
    		as J-38, but as one unit of 
    		the Resistance, so she could
    		help our cause.
    		
    Twede:		But of course, there is no 
    		way that these actions would
    		be taken positively. She had
    		failed her duty as an agent,
    		and was being watched. I was
    		enlisted as her chaperone,
    		and I was to look over her
    		actions... but I failed also.
    		
    Razma:		You too?
    
    Twede:		...Yes. The contract that once
    		existed between myself and 
    		NUT has been eradicated.
    		
    Robin:		...I've been deceiving you all.
    		My name, my personal 
    		history.... It's all lies. But I
    		do want you to believe this: I
    		thoroughly enjoyed being with
    		you... One day, I realized that
    		I felt as if I were one of 
    		you. It felt more natural to
    		be 'Robin' than 'Dana,' which
    		is my real name...
    		<<giggle>>... It's silly, I
    		know. So I left NUT. I was
    		able somehow to get this ship
    		to move, but the Robin
    		Foundation has been erased,
    		and I can no longer sponsor 
    		you or help in any way. But
    		it's not luck for a woman to
    		make it in the world on her
    		own... I can at least
    		guarantee your safety. So
    		please let me work with all of
    		you... Please.
    		
    Deckson:	We understand your position,
    		and that you are not a liar.
    		It costs us nothing to believe
    		in you for a little longer. All
    		here feel that way.
    
    Warren:		...Although we'd rather not
    		have any more surprises like
    		thhis in the future.
    
    Yukito:		Well, if we were used we
    		were being used by the
    		bigwigs over at NUT, and in
    		reality, these two helped us
    		out on a number of
    		occasions.
    
    Semyl:		True dat. If it weren't for
    		them, we wouldn't be standin'
    		here now!
    
    Razma:		We owe them before 
    		too...
    		
    Robin:		...Thank you, Razma. Thank 
    		you everyone....
    
    Deckson:	Welcome to BIS... Robin.
    
    Robin:		<<giggle>>
    
    Semyl:		...So now that that's settled...
    		Razma, you gonna answer my
    		question, or what? Hey! Come
    		on, spill it!!
    
    Razma:		You STILL remembered that?
    		S-stop it! Cut it out!!
    
    Mebius:		Aah... youth!
    
    Warren:		(..........)		
    
    		...Robin. About the battle
    		today... That first OF... Does
    		Ares have BAHRAM backing?
    
    Mebius:		BAHRAM? You mean that Vacilia
    		County is behind this whole
    		Martian movement?
    
    Robin:		Yes. Even NUT didn't know
    		about BAHRAM's involvement
    		until just recently. BAHRAM is
    		denying any affiliation... so
    		that's been causing some
    		tension within NUT too. I'll
    		look into it... The Foundation
    		is gone, but I still have my
    		connections. I think I can
    		make it work out!
    
    Deckson:	OK, things are getting
    		complicated... But we'll disband
    		for now.... Get some rest.
    		
    Cage:		(Ares... Phil... Until just a little
    		while ago, everyone was here
    		together.... How did this
    		happen....
    		
    		And Myona... I have to thank
    		you, but... Where are you
    		right now?)
    
    [ SCENE18 CLEARED ]
    
     --------------------------
    |Bridge                    \____________________
    
    Razma:		And, what are we going to do
    		from now on?
    
    Warren:		I hear Ares and company
    		have been terrorizing
    		inhabitants everywhere with
    		their violent riots - we'll
    		have to do something about
    		that first.
    
    Deckson:	Things are going to get
    		complicated if BAHRAM really
    		is behind them... But why
    		would they want to use Ares?
    		He seems too independent for
    		that....
    		
    Robin:		I though so too. Riots
    		are usually more emotional
    		outburst than strategy, and I
    		don't think for a second that
    		it can be so effective as to
    		better the situation on Mars.
    		I think we're still missing
    		something here... We need to
    		consider the existence of a
    		completely different motive.
    		
    Cage:		Do you mean that BAHRAM is
    		using Ares and his retaliatory
    		spirit for their own benefit?
    
    Robin:		It's possible... but he would
    		be able to see through that.
    		Perhaps he is in some sort
    		of a situation in which he
    		cannot avoid being used in
    		whatever way they desire.
    		
    Yukito:		...Ares himself said that he 
    		caused the Bonaparte
    		accident to get back at
    		Zephyrs, who had killed his
    		parents and had experimented
    		on him. It was the wrong
    		thing to do, but I can 
    		understand why he would be
    		driven to do such a thing....
    		However, I still find it hard
    		to believe that he meant to 
    		instigate war on Martian soil
    		from the very beginning.
    
    Razma:		What's the point in sitting
    		around hypothesizing about
    		something we don't even
    		know? The problem is still
    		going on. If we're going to
    		stop them, let's get on with
    		it!
    
    Mebius:		That's true. It is a bit risky,
    		but if we make a move, it's
    		possible to put BAHRAM or
    		NUT or whomever else in a 
    		position in which they have to
    		act. That may shed some light
    		on all these questions we
    		have right now.
    		
    Warren:		It's dangerous to move when
    		we have no idea what they
    		are planning to do... but I
    		suppose we can't just sit
    		around and watch.
    		
    TwedeL		Neither BAHRAM nor the UNSF
    		are thinking about the
    		citizens of Mars. If something
    		is not done, there is no
    		doubt that the entire city will
    		be transformed into a
    		battlefield.
    		
    Deckson:	Their actions cannot be
    		described as being at all
    		systematic, or well-planned. I
    		expect that they will trip up
    		at some point, but if we wait 
    		for that to happen there will
    		be much damage to the people
    		of Mars... We must do
    		something!
    
    Warren:		It's my understanding that
    		the UNSF is sending an LEV
    		troop from Malgalityfel to
    		here, Hellespontos. Apparently
    		they have already arrived via
    		land route to Hellespontos...
    		If things progress, there is
    		no doubt that there will be a 
    		battle between the Armed
    		Civilians and the UNSF.
    
    Cage:		Malgalityfel... Isn't that the
    		county where the capital is
    		located? The troops are
    		coming all the way from
    		there?
    
    Razma:		They're just support troops.
    		After all. we've pretty much
    		cleared out the military
    		forces in Hellespontos!
    
    Deckson:	There' no doubt in my mind
    		that Ares and company are
    		planning to fight. We need to
    		come up with a likely 
    		battleground before it
    		happens, and warn the
    		residents so they can escape
    		in time.
    
    		We have to do everything and
    		anything within our power to
    		prevent casualties!
    
    the phone rings
    
    Twede:		We have some new 
    		information... The Armed
    		Civilians are beginning to
    		gather at a point on the
    		military's procession route.
    		
    Deckson:	Good, we'll start there! We'll 
    		give them a warning, and
    		depending upon the
    		circumstances, we'll have to 
    		put an end to any violence
    		physically.
    
    Semyl:		Got it!
    
    Robin:		Oh, Deckson... before I forget.
    		In celebration of you
    		convalescence, I've done some
    		work on Blade. It's now called
    		'Calibur.' Don't forget to read
    		the user's manual.
    		
    Deckson:	Cal - ? ...Er, okay.
    
    ##### Scene 19: Clawing the Red Earth #####
    
    Deckson:	So this is my new machine.
    		Maintenance utilities 
    		augmented, defense
    		mechanisms fortified... which 
    		is all fine and dandy, but it
    		may make maneuvering
    		somewhat complicated.
    
    Mebius:		Hee, hee... what are you
    		whining about? The old-timer
    		can't handle all the new
    		tech?
    
    Deckson:	I admit that, unlike you, I am
    		only growing older and older.
    		But I don't know about being
    		called an old-timer, and
    		besides....
    		
    Armed Civilians appear
    
    Mebius:		The Armed Civilians! It's Ares
    		and his group!
    		
    Deckson:	...I knew it. We won't be able
    		to go into hiding for a little
    		while longer, the way things
    		look now.
    
    Armed Civilian:	Glad you could make it, BIS!
    		You affected bunch of
    		no-good softies! You'd be
    		better off minding your own
    		business and watching the
    		action at home! Whose side
    		are you on!
    
    Deckson:	Comrades. You are only
    		causing strife, and harming
    		Mars. If you shower the
    		seeds of betterment with
    		destructive deeds, they will
    		not bloom. Timing is crucial,
    		and this is not the...
    
    Armed Civilian:	As if you would know!! We
    		have an important obligation 
    		to fulfill. If you get in our
    		way, we will get rid of you!
    
    Yukito:		We can't be doing this when
    		the UNSF will be here any
    		minute.
    
    Deckson:	We have no choice. We'll have
    		to stop them forcibly. Let's
    		disable their frames, and
    		hope that they retreat.
    
    Cage:		Yes, sir! Ready, Pharsti?
    
    Pharsti:	Roger.
    
    COMMENCE BATTLE
    
    After obliterating the enemy
    
    Cage:		<<sigh>> It's over.
    
    Pharsti:	Numerous heat sources have
    		been detected five thousand
    		meters from here. It is my
    		opinion that these are UNSF
    		LEVs from Malgalityfel.
    		
    Cage:		We were somehow able to
    		avoid combat...
    		
    ?????:		...age.... Cage....
    
    Cage:		What? Could it be?
    
    ?????:		Can... ear... me, Cage?
    
    Cage:		Myona?? Pharsti! Is that
    		really her?
    		
    Pharsti:	99.86% voice match. According
    		to my analysis it is
    		certain it is an authentic human
    		voice.
    
    Myona's Voice:	Cage! Oh... good. She's safe?
    
    Cage:		How are you? Where are you?
    		Come on out, let's go home.
    		
    Myona's Voice:	No, Cage. I... I can't see you
    		anymore....
    
    Cage:		You can't...? Why?!
    
    Myona's Voice:	I won't be me for too much
    		longer... I... wanted that for
    		myself....
    
    Cage:		What do you mean? Where are 
    		you? There's something I 
    		need to tell you... Please
    		come out here...!
    
    Myona's Voice: 	(.......)
    
    Cage:		Myona... You don't likeme
    		anymore...?
    
    An enemy OF appears in the field, in it is Myona!
    
    Myona:		Don't like you? ...That's not it.
    		That's not it at all...!
    
    Cage:		Uh.... Myona.... You're riding in
    		that? Isn't that... an...
    		Orbital... Frame?
    
    Myona:		Myona... It would be so much
    		better if that were really my
    		name.
    		
    Cage:		Your real name...? Did you...
    		Were you able to remember
    		your past?!
    
    Myona:		My brother reminded me...
    
    Cage:		Your brother??
    
    Myona:		When I met you for the first
    		time on the day of the
    		accident, I was supposed to
    		escape from the Bonaparte on
    		the Animus... on your machine.
    		But then you came and you
    		almost got hurt... and I
    		unconsciously gave a part of
    		me to her.
    
    		I wanted to move her... and
    		save you... <<giggle>> ..Do
    		you understand what I'm
    		saying? Of course you don't....
    		
    		I'm not like you... I'm... I'm a 
    		monster.
    	
    CageL		What are you talking about?
    		Anyway, hurry up and come
    		here! A huge troop from the
    		UNSF is headed this way!
    
    Myona:		Cage, I had a really good 
    		time with you. I was... really
    		fortunate to have met you.
    		That machine... That's me,
    		Cage. I wanted you to have
    		her back... as a sign that I,
    		Myona Alderan, once existed
    		in this world...
    Another OF appears behind Myona's
    
    Amante:		Okayyyyy. Time's up.
    
    Pharsti:	Cage! Who is she?!
    
    Cage:		I've seen her with Bolozof...
    		Her name was... Amante, or
    		something like that. What is
    		she doing here?!
    
    Myona:		Yes... I... know that....
    
    Cage:		What are you doing to
    		Myona?!
    		
    Amante:		Heh, heh, heh...! Switch on!
    		Just a push of a button...
    		
    Some swirling aura surround Myona
    
    Myona:		Ugg.... Uggggghhhghghhggg!!
    
    Cage:		Myona?!
    
    Myona (in tears): Good... bye... C... age....
    
    Cage:		Myona, hang on, I'll be right
    		there!
    		
    Cage drives Pharsti next to Myona, but Phil's Grafficane
    hinders
    
    Cage:		Phil! What are you doing?!
    
    Phil:		I can't let you go there.
    		Cage, she's no longer the
    		Myona you know.
    
    Myona:		Acting On Strategy, Location
    		Confirmed, All Security
    		Systems Will Be Disengaged
    
    Cage:		Phil! What did you do to
    		Myona! Get out of... Move!!
    	
    Phil:		Heh heh heh... Look at you.
    		Fear not, I will take very
    		good care of Myona.
    
    Cage:		Phil!
    
    Myona:		All Systems Go. Beginning
    		Countdown. 10.... 9.... 8.....
    
    Pharsti:	Rapidly rising energy levels
    		have been measure within
    		Miss Myona's body. There may
    		be a high-energy projectile
    		being readied for ejection.
    		Cage, this can be very
    		dangerous. Please, retreat!
    
    Cage:		I don't care! I... I have to go
    		and save Myona!!
    
    Pharsti:	No! Cage, I cannot let you
    		die! Whether or not you
    		permit it, we are going to
    		escape!
    
    Cage:		Please don't do it, Pharsti!
    		Myona... Myona!
    
    Myona:		0.... Fire....
    
    Pharsti:	We can't go!
    
    Cage:		Nooooo! Myonaaaaaaa!!
    
    Myona's OF begins emitting explosion opposite direction
    of where Cage is

    |LEV Division              \____________________
    
    UNSF Soldier:	Lieutenant! The rebellion
    		lepton has been making 
    		announcements and causing a
    		scene!
    		
    UNSF Lieutenant: Hah, that's special. We'll hear
    		what they're moaning about
    		before we tear them to
    		shreds. Let the heads of the 
    		Security Keeping Force know
    		also.
    
    UNSF Soldier:	Yes, sir!
    
    Ares:		...Innumerable counties exist
    		on Mars, and each and every
    		line that makes up the
    		boundaries that divide this
    		land is the direct result of
    		Earth's territory squabbles.
    		Human green has found its
    		way even to this red planet.
    		
    		However, what one finds here
    		is not a progressive, modern
    		society. It's nothing but a
    		moldy board game with its
    		archaic rules; discrimination,
    		tyranny, oppression, and
    		violence hidden by the cloak
    		of national interest abound.
    		
    		We, the inhabitants of Mars,
    		have been tolerating this
    		reality until today..... Why?
    		'Unchecked population,' 'food
    		shortages.'
    		
    		'Earth can no longer support
    		all these people!' ...This is
    		what Earth people say,
    		sneering.
    		
    		'Even if they came back to
    		Earth, they woouldn't have a 
    		chance at life because
    		they're so weak.' ...Who made
    		us that way to begin with?
    		
    		None other than the 
    		Earthlings! They call anyone
    		at all different from them
    		'Enders,' and sit in their
    		comfortable homes under the
    		sun, complacent, their noses
    		in the air, thinking that they
    		can dominate us.... They
    		couldn't be more wrong!
    		We are going to prove them
    		wrong. They'll see. Let them
    		hear our cries! Comrades,
    		fellow fighters for justice,
    		unite! Freedom to Mars!
    		
    UNSF Lieutenant: Hmph... They should go ahead
    		and do it if they think they
    		can. A good half of our
    		forces is made up of those
    		Martians too. If they attack
    		us, they'll be attacking their
    		own kind!
    		
    UNSF Soldier:	L-Lieutenant! Abnormally high

    Pharsti: 	Miss Myona can no longer be

    		sorry that I disobeyed you.

    		back immediately.
    		
    Cage:		But...
    
    Pharsti:	The electrical parts have
    		been severely damaged. I
    		would recommend that we
    		retreat temporarily. With my

    Cage:		Is that... Ares is making
    		another speech?
    		
    Ares:		What you refer to as 'Earth'
    		is nothing more than a speck
    		in a vast universe, which is
    		filled with specks. If Earth
    		wants to call all humans living
    		outside the terrestrial region
    		'Enders,' that is their
    		prerogative.
    		It is their choice if they
    		want to play the almighty king 
    		of the entire universe.
    		However, I will not stand for
    		it, and I officially hereby
    		declare Mars independent
    		from Earth's grasp! Whether
    		or not that light will continue
    		to burn this ground we walk
    		on is entirely up to the UCM.
    		My request is easy: join us
    		in our fight against Earth.
    		Even you should be able to
    		understand a request that 
    		simple.
    		
    Razma:		That guy has gone completely
    		nuts! He really is trying to
    		wage a war against Earth!
    		
    Warren:		It's not as crazy as you
    		think. At this point, it's
    		possible.
    
    Yukito:		Pops! What's that supposed to 
    		mean?!
    		
    Mebius:		He has given the'means' and
    		the 'end.' Nobody dreams of
    		something that is impossible.
    		But once they understand
    		that it can occur in reality,
    		humans will stop at nothing to
    		get it.
    		
    Ares:		I will grant you three hours.
    		If your response is not the
    		one we want, we will not hold
    		back. A simple 'yes' or 'no'
    		will do. We will not tolerate
    		any indecision when the time
    		period is up.
    		
    		Come with us, or get burned.
    		Two options.... See you again
    		very soon.
    
    		Good day. 'Freedom to Mars.'

    Razma:		And that's the strategy? That

    		return Testament. I need
    		that.
    
    Cage:		Ares... WHere is she? What 
    		happened to Myona?!
    		
    Ares:		You never change. Nothing
    		happened to her. This person,
    		'Myona,' never existed in this
    		world.
    
    Cage:		That's a lie!
    
    Ares:		It's not a lie, Myona is not
    		here. She is Pharsti. My little
    		sister.
    
    Yukito:		Phar... sti? Little sister? What
    		are you talking about?
    
    Ares:		She was Subject 479. All
    		Subjects in the 470s were
    		used in the experimental
    		research of the 'Organic
    		Implant Model Metatron
    		Communicator.
    
    Mebius:		Organic Implant model?
    
    Ares:		Testament - the one you've
    		been riding - never had a
    		system program installed.
    		Using the 'Communicator,'
    		people who are able to send
    		their brain waves directly
    		into the  Mindflow System...
    		like us... can maneuver it.
    		Other humans cannot make it
    		move.
    		
    Cage:		So... That day, when the LEV
    		turned itself on...
    
    Ares:		We sank the Bonaparte,
    		seized the Animus, and were
    		planning our escape. Instead,
    		she met you, and in order to
    		escape from the danger
    		unfolding in front of her very
    		eyes, she subconsciously
    		wished to help you... and the 
    		Communicator in her body
    		'transplanted' this desire into
    		the machine... In return, she
    		lost her memory.
    
    Cage:		So... Pharsti is a part of
    		her....?
    
    Ares:		I wouldn't say she is a part 
    		of her. They're one and the
    		same. I gave her back her
    		memory, and rebooted her so
    		that she could go back to
    		being 'Pharsti' instead of
    		'Myona.'
    
    Razma:		What did you do to her?!
    
    Ares:		Heh heh... She wanted it. By
    		the way, did you happen to
    		see that light earlier? Some
    		powerful stuff, wouldn't you
    		say? That's something that
    		can be done only by those
    		with hyperalignment to the
    		OF.
    
    Robin:		Hyper... alignment? What could
    		that be?
    
    Ares:		Right now it's just us, but we
    		want to expand our team. If
    		we have Testament, we can
    		procure more hyperaligned
    		allies. I doubt that they will
    		just quietly surrender to us;
    		not until we do a little more
    		than we did today... There is 
    		a need to stregthen our
    		side further.
    
    		Mars will be illuminated by
    		that light.... and to that end,
    		I need to have that
    		returned!
    
    Cage:		Ares! Do you really feel that 
    		way?
    
    Ares:		Of course... This is the real
    		me. I extend the same choice
    		to you. Decide whether you
    		will fight with me, or against
    		me. At any rate, you should
    		hurry. In three hours, we will
    		be heading to West Hellas to
    		level it.
    
    Deckson:	That's the largest nest in 
    		Hellespontos! How many tens
    		of thousands of innocent lives
    		are you trying to claim?!
    
    Ares:		If you don't want it to 
    		happen, I would suggest you
    		come out and try to stop me.
    		I'll find some time for you.
    		
    Warren:		...
    
    Ares:		Heh heh heh.... I look forward
    		to a positive reply...
    
    end of communication
    
    Razma:		Shoot! What are we going to
    		do, Boss?
    
    Deckson:	...Cage.
    
    Cage:		Huh...?
    
    Deckson:	Up until now, I have always
    		thought of myself as an agent
    		acting on behalf of Mars. As
    		irresponsible as it may sound,
    		I believed that I am here
    		because of Mars' will, not my
    		own.
    		
    		But in terms of this decision, 
    		I cannot make the choice.... It
    		goes without saying that life
    		should be respected, and that
    		it shouldn't be destroyed on
    		a whim. But Ares - or should
    		I say Vale? - If what he is
    		attempting mirrors the true
    		wishes of the Martian people,
    		I am in no position to refute
    		that. I leave this deciison to
    		you.
    
    Cage:		What!?
    
    Mebius:		Deckson!
    
    Razma:		Boss! What's gotten into
    		you?!
    		
    Deckson:	He has been involved in this 
    		incident from the very
    		beginning - both as a victim,
    		and for bringing this
    		responsibility to us. Besides,
    		he is the only one who has
    		the power to menuever 
    		Testament. It would be easy
    		for me to make the call, and
    		command him to do my
    		bidding. But that would be
    		wrong. He has both the right
    		and the responsibility to put
    		an end to this issue once and
    		for all. Discuss your options
    		with everyone, and make your
    		decision carefully. Is that
    		okay with everyone?
    
    Warren:		Deckson...
    
    Yukito:		Heh... I guess that works.
    
    Semyl:		...
    
    Cage:		(Me?! ...What am I supposed to
    		do....)

    Deckson:	...Are you disappointed in me?
    		I can't even make a decision
    		like this....
    
    Mebius:		No, I understand just how
    		you feel. But are you okay
    		with it?
    
    Deckson:	Perhaps I am growing old.
    		Just like you said.
    
    Mebius:		Oh please! You're still thinking
    		about what I said? It was a
    		joke!
    
    Deckson:	Heh. I had accepted it as 
    		fact... You don't think that's 
    		the case... Mebius?
    
    Mebius:		What?
    
    Deckson:	...I had a dream last night...
    
    Mebius:		A dream...?
    
    Deckson:	Yes, of all those I've hurt in
    		the past... They all taunt me...
    		Do you think you're doing the
    		right thing? Are yuo sure
    		you've made the right 
    		decision this time? ...All I've
    		done is got all of you 
    		involved, and placed you in 
    		the midst of danger every
    		day. That's it. And I used to
    		think that was the right thing
    		to do. I thought that we
    		could save the Martian people
    		by doing that. But what is the
    		reality? Our friends... I
    		couldn't even save Phil. I...
    		failed. I thought I was doing
    		good, but it wasn't enough.
    
    Mebius:		Deckson... it's not like that...
    
    Deckson:	I may have just been trying
    		to escape from sadness and
    		loneliness. I am confused. I
    		don't know what I should do
    		anymore.
    		
    Mebius: 	Deckson, you're wrong... If it
    		weren't for you, I wouldn't be
    		here today.
    		
    Deckson:	Heh. That's an exaggeration.
    
    Mebius:		That's the truth. Do you
    		remember what you told me a
    		long time ago?
    		
    Deckson:	...Refresh my memory. I've 
    		been spouting off too many
    		lies to know which one you're
    		talking about.
    
    Mebius:		'Even when you think you've 
    		lost everything... you can
    		never lose your future.'
    
    		Remember?
    
    		If you have been wrong all 
    		these years, so what? Will it
    		be solved if you worry about
    		it now? And what happens to 
    		me, who believed what you
    		said to me?
    		
    		If that was nonsense... I feel
    		completely stupid!
    		
    Deckson:	.......
    
    Mebius:		You may have nothing, you
    		may have your worries...
    		regardless, tomorrow will
    		come. We're not god. Even if 
    		we're not perfect, we have to
    		move forward. Were you
    		right, or wrong?
    
    		You have plenty of time to
    		find out from now on! Come
    		on, I'm always here for you.
    		
    Deckson:	...Yes, you're right.... I'm
    		sorry.
    		
    Mebius:		What? That's so unlike you.
    
    Deckson:	...Mebius. If... if something
    		were to happen to me....
    		
    Mebius:		Huh?
    
    Deckson:	(No, don't go there...)
    
    		...I'm sorry. Never mind.
    
    Mebius:		Tell me. I'm curious.
    
    Deckson:	We'll talk about it some other
    		time. Cage should be ready by
    		now. Let's go.
    
    Mebius:		O-Okay.
    
    Deckson:	(Knowing all of you, I'm sure
    		you'll be fine. You won't get
    		lost anymore....)
    		
    Bridge
    
    Deckson:	...So? Have you reached a
    		decision?
    		
    Cage:		Yes.
    
    Deckson:	Good. Let's hear it.
    
    Cage:		I am not a Martian. But
    		having fought together with
    		all of you until today, I've
    		had a lot of experiences, and
    		I've seen many things. I've 
    		changed my attitude toward
    		Mars from 'a person who
    		doesn't know much about
    		Mars' to 'a friend who cares
    		about Mars.' I think that we
    		should stop him.... We should
    		stop Ares.
    		
    Deckson:	I understand how you feel.
    		Nobody sees you as an 
    		outsider. But the fighting will
    		only get worse. I want to
    		hear the raeson behind your
    		decision, which will put you in
    		danger.
    		
    Cage:		Just as he said, humans on
    		Mars are going through a lot
    		of suffering right now.... and
    		I think that something needs
    		to be done about it, just like
    		everyone else. Ares
    		suggested a revolution as a
    		solution. I can't think of a
    		better way to go about
    		things, so I may be in no
    		position to go against him.
    		But I feel a real emptiness
    		when he mentions Mars'
    		future. Somethig's very
    		unnatural about the whole
    		thing - Ares' eyes; the
    		progression of events up to
    		today. I will stop Ares. And
    		one day I want to hear how
    		Ares really feels, with his
    		own words. It may be my
    		selfishness, but I can't hand
    		Pharsti over so that hordes 
    		of people will be burned,
    		especially when nothing has
    		been cleared up.... This is the
    		reason for my decision.
    
    Deckson:	I see. You do have your
    		personal reasons, but that is
    		not all. We will support your
    		decision. Any problems?
    		
    Warren:		No.
    
    Yukito:		Sounds fine to me.
    
    Razma:		Boss, I need to say one
    		thing.
    
    Semyl:		True. Cage. You're forgetting
    		something real important!
    		
    Cage:		Huh...?
    
    Semyl:		How about Myona? Who do ya 
    		think is gonna save her if
    		you don't? Boy, don't ya know
    		this is what boyfriends DO?!
    
    Cage:		Bo-boyfriend?! I... I'm... It's!
    
    Razma:		Hey now, you're going to put
    		on an act in a serious 
    		situation like this? Tell the
    		truth, now.
    
    Cage:		W-Wait a minute!!
    
    Semyl:		Spill it! Spill it!!
    
    Cage:		W-well... Er.....
    
    Razma:		Admit it! Just say it!!
    
    Semyl:		There ain't no reason to be
    		shy, ya know? Was it like,
    		'...And their eyes met across
    		the crowded room...?'
    
    Razma:		If you don't say it, I will!
    
    Semyl:		(What? No way! Is he
    		really...?!)
    
    Razma:		...Mebius. I don't want to go
    		home tonight.
    
    Mebius:		Hunh? Me? Where is your
    		home...?
    
    Another hammer for Razma
    
    Razma:		Yiiiiiii!!
    
    Semyl:		You idiot! Whaddaya think
    		you're doing, expecting a
    		novice to play along. Look,
    		you made her all
    		uncomfortable!
    
    Razma:		Owww! But that kind of honest
    		response is the new
    		movement in humor!
    
    Yukito:		Well, well. Things will be out
    		of control for a while. I'll
    		miss seeing the old married
    		couple standup routine.
    
    Warren:		...Cage.
    
    Cage:		Yes.
    
    Warren:		This may not be pleasant for
    		you to hear, but Myona may
    		not be the Myona we knew
    		before. We may have to take
    		her life in order to save that
    		of a great many people. Are
    		you prepared for that?
    
    Cage:		I will save Myona, no matter
    		what. I don't care if people 
    		think that's idealistic.
    
    Warren:		...I see.
    
    		(Definitely idealistic. But not a
    		bad answer all the same.)
    
    Robin enters
    
    Robin:		The verdict is out? Is that
    		all okay with you too,
    		Deckson?
    
    Deckson:	Yes. A load has been lifted
    		off my shoulders.
    
    Mebius:		(Deckson.... Good for you.)
    
    Deckson:	Now, as Ares said over the
    		broadcast, if his request is
    		not met, he is planning on
    		attacking West Hellas with
    		that giant beam. If we don't
    		do something. that threat will
    		become a tragic reality... We
    		must avoid it at all costs! We
    		must find a way to stop him
    		somehow!
    
    Cage:		But... we can't stop them until
    		we find out where they are.
    
    Robin:		<<giggle>> Don't worry,
    		Twede!
    
    Twede:		...If the enemy plans to utilize
    		the beam in question, they
    		will most probably want to
    		take advantage of the 
    		locations where the effects
    		would be greatest. Here is a
    		list of points for your
    		review.
    
    Razma:		No way! Again?! How does he 
    		do that?
    
    Warren:		Judging from this data... the 
    		figures look authentic. It
    		would make sense to go
    		there.
    
    Deckson:	OK, we have no time to waste!
    		We'll head there immediately!
    
    Semyl:		Got it!
    
    Deckson:	No, the only problem is fuel
    		and the funds for
    		maintenace...
    
    Razma:		Hunh? What's that mean?
    
    Mebius:		See, fuel and maintenance
    		don't come free in this world.
    		Before, we had financial
    		backing, but now we are an
    		independent entity. We'll reach
    		the bottom of our assets
    		very soon.
    
    Semyl:		What?! Don't even tell me we
    		only got batteries one-way!
    		
    Deckson:	I'd like for it to be a joke,
    		but that could happen.
    	
    Razma:		For real...?
    
    Robin:		You won't need to worry
    		about that. After all, I've
    		found us a new sponsor!
    
    Yukito:		Really?! I would never expect
    		such a crazy thing to....
    
    Robin:		Yes, there is... It's Nereidum
    		Universal Technology, a.k.a.
    		NUT!
    
    Cage:		What?! NUT!?!
    
    Deckson:	But Ms. O'Connell!
    
    Warren:		How could that be? You sold
    		us out to NUT again? You
    		betrayed us, after all...!
    
    Robin:		No, no. I coerced NUT into
    		allowing a comeback of the
    		Robin Foundation, backing us
    		up, and above all, giving me
    		autonomy in my operation!
    
    Razma:		What the...?! Nothing ever
    		goes that well. Besides, it
    		may be indirect, but we ARE
    		going to be fighting against
    		BAHRAM. NUT and BAHRAM have 
    		been collaborating! How could
    		that possibly work out?
    
    Semyl:		Yeah. They got no use for us
    		no more anyway. Why'd they
    		do that now?
    
    Robin:		Hey. Don't I get any credit
    		for all the flirting I did with
    		the anti-BAHRAM older
    		gentlemen within NUT? I'm
    		starting to wish I hadn't
    		wasted all that energy.
    
    Yukito:		...THAT'S what you were doing
    		in that span when you went
    		MIA?
    
    Deckson:	Hmmm... WHat you're saying is
    		that even within NUT, there
    		are those who were using us
    		for the J-38 project, and
    		there are those anti-BAHRAM
    		people who do not care for
    		what Ares and company are
    		doing? ...Even so, it's still
    		NUT. However did you
    		convince them?
    
    Robin:		Aside from the LEVs that
    		civilians have access to, NUT
    		is not really concerned with
    		its products - its OFs and
    		weapons. If Mars did win its
    		independence, there's still a
    		possibility that BAHRAM would
    		become a very dangerous
    		opponent to NUT... At least
    		that's what I told them, and
    		then it was easy.
    
    Deckson:	But it is common knowledge
    		that BAHRAM and NUT are
    		working in tandem. If news of
    		our involvement is made
    		public, the relationship would
    		surely sour. There is no way
    		that BAHRAM wouldn't be able
    		to find out where its money
    		is going? ...Are you absolutely
    		certain that this is safe?
    
    Warren:		Exactly, and don't you
    		think....
    
    Robin:		ACH! Shush! SHHHHH! Are you
    		going to fight Ares? Or not?
    		Make up your minds!?
    
    Cage:		Thank you very much, Ms. 
    		Robin. I'm going!
    		
    Robin:		That's more like it! You go!
    		You go and do whatever you
    		have to do!
    
    Yukito:		(She's... really changed.)
    
    Semyl:		Aight! It's ON!
    
    Razma:		Semyl, be careful okay? The
    		enemy is gaining strength... If
    		things get bad, don't leave my
    		side. Got it?
    
    Semyl: 		Whuh.... Oh! Okay!
    
    Mebius:		Well, well! I think we've got
    		something here! When did this
    		happen?
    
    Semyl:		Whah! No! Wh-what are you
    		talking about?!
    		
    Mebius:		Are you blushing...? It was
    		just a joke... <<giggle>>
    
    Warren:		...Hm? Yukito? What's with the
    		water?
    
    Yukito:		Here. For you.
    
    Mebius:		What. You want me to drink 
    		it?
    
    Yukito:		Come on, everyone. Drink up.
    		It's our ritual farewell toast.
    
    Mebius:		<<gulp>> ...Hey! Don't make
    		me do unlucky things! I drank
    		some!!
    
    Yukito:		Heh heh heh! You've got it all
    		wrong! It's an oath that you
    		will come back here again...
    
    Warren:		I don't know what this is all
    		about... but it seems
    		important to this guy.... Sorry
    		everyone, please indulge him.
    
    Twede:		Dana, I must apologize to you.
    		You are much better at this
    		than I.
    
    Robin:		You're right, I was able to
    		use my womanly prowess,
    		which you will never
    		possess...
    
    Twede:		Whah! N-no....
    
    Robin:		Why men love to have women

    		me.... My shoulders are all
    		stiff.
    
    Twede:		...
    
    Robin:		<<giggle>> Are you angry?
    
    Twede:		...N-no.
    
    		(Ah well, this is more
    		rewarding than the last job,
    		but it'll be hard on the
    		psyche...)
    
    		...I will maneuver Saoshyant
    		to head toward the location
    		which we discussed earlier.
    		Would that be all right?
    
    Deckson:	Yes, please do.
    
    		(Phil... Are you there also...?)

    Twede maneuvers Saoshyant towards their destination,
    but midway sirens are heard.
    
    Deckson:	What happened?
    
    Twede:		The sphere along the route is
    		sending off SOS signals! It
    		seems they have been
    		attacked by the Armed 
    		Civilians...
    
    Warren:		What should we do?
    		Deckson...
    		
    Deckson:	We can't let it continue...
    		Come, everyone! We're going!
    		
    Cage:		OK!
    
    Instead of heading to Hellas, they
    stop by at the Sphere along their way

    ##### Scene 20: Missing Line #####
    
    BIS Arrives at a burned city
    
    Warren:		...This is bad.
    
    Yukito:		They've come quite close to
    		Hellas.... The darned Armed
    		Civilians... They really did a
    		number on this place.
    
    Semyl:		...How could they do this...
    
    Armed Civilians appear
    
    Amante:		The group has arrived! We've
    		been waiting for you! You
    		guys are sooo predictable!
    
    Mebius:		You did this? Unforgivable....
    		Utterly unforgivable!
    
    Amante:		Ooooh! Look at all those 
    		wrinkles! You can't afford to
    		get mad any more, lady.
    
    Mebius:		...Semyl, will you take this?
    
    Semyl:		Be glad to.... Excusez moi...
    		Ahem! <<deep breath>>
    		
    		Shut yo trap you giant cow!
    		Whaddaya think you're doin',
    		parading yourself in front of
    		us all the time? Where's 
    		Ares?!
    
    Amante:		Ohhhh myyy! Here's the
    		loudmouth again... If you want
    		to see him, hand over
    		Testament! Then I'll take you
    		to him.
    
    Cage:		I can't do that. Take me to
    		Ares! I need to ask him
    		something very important!
    
    Amante:		Like, heLLO? Parlas ingles?
    		Gosh! It's so useless trying
    		to talk to you!
    
    Phil appears
    
    Phil:		It's no use, Amante. With him,
    		it's always Ares this, Ares
    		that. Isn't it pathetic?
    
    Cage:		Phil! You're here!
    
    Phil:		If you're here, it must mean
    		that you've figured out where
    		we are. Just as Ares
    		predicted....
    
    Cage:		Myona... Is she safe?
    
    Phil:		She doesn't want to see you
    		anymore. Why don't you just
    		go home?
    
    Cage:		I... don't think so.
    
    Phil:		You can't meet her. It's
    		almost time for the next
    		attack.
    
    Deckson:	Phil! Open your eyes! Do you
    		see what they're making you
    		do?
    
    Phil:		Deckson, Ares needs me. He
    		told me so himself!
    
    Dcekson:	Phil!
    
    Phil:		There's nothing more to it!
    		It's between Cage and me
    		now! Come on, Cage!
    
    Cage:		Phil....
    
    COMMENCE BATTLE
    
    When Phil attacks Deckson
    
    Deckson:	Phil! It's me!
    
    Phil:		Deckson... I... I suffered for
    		a long time.... Ever since I
    		took my father with these
    		hands....
    		
    Deckson:	That wasn't your fault! He 
    		was under the influence of
    		experimental drugs and was
    		hallucinating - he attacked
    		his own son. You were only
    		protecting yourself!
    
    Phil:		I'm not a good person like all
    		of you.... I'm just a terrible
    		person you happened to pick
    		up, and I joined BIS for
    		refuge....
    
    		I couldn't save Harry or Ilya
    		or Lou or Elk or Lirat...
    		
    		Just so I myself could
    		survive... My own father.....
    		With these hands!
    
    Cage:		Phil!
    
    Phil:		...Cage... I thought you and I
    		were the same.... I was 
    		lonely. Nobody would look at
    		the real me. Whenever you
    		would talk about how not to
    		hurt people, I felt like I was
    		under attack each and every
    		time....
    		
    		But Ares... Vale was different.
    		He gave me my dues. 'There
    		are people in this world who
    		don't deserve to exist!' When
    		he said that to me, I was
    		saved!
    		
    Deckson:	Phil....
    
    Phil:		That's all I have to say! If 
    		you get in my way, I'll
    		destroy you.... Even you!
    
    When Amante is defeated
    
    Amante:		Uh-ohhhh! My Scarmiglione....
    		Awwwwwh! Strategic retreat!
    		
    When Cage is about to finish Phil with one blow
    
    Cage:		Phil! Can you hear me? If I
    		hurt you, I apologize. So...
    		
    Phil:		You don't understand
    		anything. Your nice guy
    		streak makes  me feel even
    		worse!
    		
    Cage:		(Is it... Me...?)
    
    After defeating Phil
    
    Phil:		...I guess this is the end....
    		Huh? The escape pod is....
    		s-stuck?!
    		
    Ares' Voice:	You're done, huh.
    
    Phil:		A... res?
    
    Cage:		What? They're all leaving....
    		What are they doing?
    		
    Pharsti:	Cage! An abnormal reaction
    		has been detected within Mr.
    		Phil's frame! It seems that
    		the OF reactor is being
    		allowed to run rampant, and
    		eventually it will explode!
    		
    Cage:		What? Here? We have to get
    		all the people out of the
    		city?
    		
    Pharsti:	The reaction is growing
    		stronger very rapidly. There
    		is not enough time to do so!
    		
    Cage:		Then we have to get Phil and
    		take him to a safe place...!
    
    Pharsti:	The explosion will reach a
    		one kilometer radius in each
    		direction. We must move him
    		now...
    
    Cage:		What do I do! Phil! Can you
    		hear me? Phil!
    
    Phil:		No... Ares planned on this
    		from the beginning?
    
    Ares' Voice:	Precisely.... Your frame was
    		built so that the reactor
    		would run out of control as
    		soon as it reached its limit. I
    		figured I'd get rid of you and
    		all your friends who are
    		fumbling around trying to help
    		you out of your dilemma, and
    		clean up the entire city and
    		Mars all at once. This is your
    		last job.
    
    Phil:		What! You... You said you
    		needed me!?
    
    Ares' Voice:	Phil, that's enoug. You
    		already know where I stand
    		on this. Heh, heh, heh...
    
    Phil:		N... No!
    
    Ares' Voice:	Farewell, Philbright.... I'll be
    		watching you burn brightly
    		from afar.....
    
    Phil:		...Oh.... Hah ha! I knew it! I', 
    		nothing but a....
    
    		(I am... so stupid!)
    		
    Cage:		Mr. Deckson! His frame is 
    		going to explode any minute
    		now!
    
    Deckson:	Yeah, I've confirmed that too.
    		I'll take care of it! Phil...
    		Come over here!
    		
    Phil:		Deckson... I can't do it... I
    		betrayed all of you.... I don't 
    		deserve to be with all of 
    		you.
    
    Deckson:	...That's not true.
    
    Phil:		I don't want your pity! What
    		would you know? You used to 
    		be one of the UNSF elite!
    
    Deckson:	Phil. Do you know what made
    		me form BIS to begin with? A
    		girl dumped me. How's that
    		for virtue?
    
    Phil:		Mr.... Deckson?
    
    Deckson:	Make up for your mistakes;
    		become deserving again. You
    		can't erase the past, but you
    		need to face it.
    		
    Phil:		I....
    
    Deckson:	Phil! Get on! Hurry!
    
    Phil:		Mr. Deckson.... Okay.
    
    Deckson gets inside Grafficane, while Phil 
    gets inside Calibur
    
    Deckson:	Good, I think we're going to
    		make it.
    		
    Phil:		...Mr. Deckson? What are you
    		doing?! Hurry, you need to 
    		get over here!
    
    Deckson is still inside Grafficane
    
    Deckson:	...Well, everyone, it looks like
    		goodbye.
    		
    Cage:		Mr. Deckson? What do you 
    		think you're doing?!
    
    Deckson:	It's not possible to maneuver
    		at this point, but I can make
    		this baby fly... I'm going to
    		take this away full-speed.
    
    Cage:		No! Leave it to me and
    		Pharsti! We'll autopilot it!
    
    Deckson:	Unfortunately, there's not
    		enough time. If this explodes
    		here, it will destroy this
    		sphere and there are still
    		plenty of people around. I
    		can't let that happen. I have
    		no choice!
    
    Cage:		You can't.... You'll die!
    
    Deckson:	Cage... What is human life,
    		anyway? In the scope of the
    		universe, a life is nothing but
    		the tiniest glimmer of light, a
    		split second. But within us
    		lies the anger, the despair,
    		that can set the entire
    		universe ablaze.... I could
    		never quite figure it out. If
    		you have it figured out when
    		we meet next, you'll have to 
    		share your findings with me.
    
    Cage:		Mr.... Deck... son....
    
    Deckson:	Phil, everyone, I have to
    		leave a little early. I'll be
    		watching from far away, to
    		see if what I've been doing
    		has been right or wrong...
    		
    Deckson maneuvers Grafficane towards the exit of the 
    Sphere
    
    Phil:		Mr. Deckson!
    
    Deckson:	...Goodbye, everyone.
    
    Pharsti:	...Time's up....
    
    Deckson:	(Phil, Warren, Yukito, Razma,
    		Semyl, and of course 
    		Mebius.... Thank you all for
    		sticking with me through all
    		of this)
    
    Deckson leaves, after that an explosion is heard
    
    Cage:		Mr.... Deckson?
    
    "rrrrRRRAAAAGH!"
    
    Cage:		Please... say something! Mr.
    		Deckson? Mr. Deckson? How
    		can... how can?!? Noooooooo!

    Warren:		...Really?
    
    Twede:		...The team that retreated
    		early, I believe, is readying

    		able to arrive at a precise

    Mebius:		Robin, we....
    
    Robin:		I know, I feel the same way.
    		But... we don't have time for
    		that now, do we? If something
    		goes wrong now... he would
    		be angry...
    
    Mebius:		Maybe he knew what was
    		going to happen. Right before
    		he heard Cage's decision... It
    		was really unlike him. He was
    		worried that he wouldn't be
    		able to play his part

    		end.
    
    Yukito:		That's typical of the ole

    Semyl:		Yeah, yeah...! We gotta...!
    
    Warren:		You guys...
    
    Razma:		It's what the Boss wanted! We

    SCENE20 CLEARED
    
     --------------------------
    |Sphere/City               \____________________
    
    From a sphere, Saoshyant heads to Ghost Town
    
     --------------------------
    |Bridge                    \____________________
    
    
    Robin:		Is everybody ready? We're
    		right above the target. The
    		OF with the high-tech
    		armaments should be around
    		here somewhere... This one's
    		for Deckson! I want you to
    		get out there and do what
    		you need to do!
    
    Cage:		There's nothing on the
    		monitors.
    
    Mebius:		Stealth, huh. We don't have
    		time for this right now.....
    
    Twede:		At first glance, it dodes not
    		look as if there is anything
    		there; in actuality, there is a
    		very large field of energy. I
    		assume that this entire area
    		is hiding the OF in question.
    		Somewhere within this region
    		is the person who possesses
    		the control device.
    
    Razma:		So what you're saying is that
    		if we find that person, we
    		can make everything visible?
    
    Semyl:		But it's too dangerous to just
    		fly in there. We don't have
    		much time, but we still gotta
    		be careful.
    
    Robin:		Although we can't see
    		anything, the sensors have
    		detected an increase in
    		energy levels in the area.
    		That OF must be charging
    		energy to fire... There is no
    		doubt that the caliber of this
    		next explosion will be far
    		more powerful than the one
    		that wiped out the entire LEV
    		troop!
    
    Yukito:		The numbers don't look good...
    		Razma, which would you wager
    		on? Can we stop them, or is
    		it impossible?
    
    		'We can stop them' is a 
    		pretty ambitious statement...
    
    Razma:		Of course we can stop them!!
    		Boss would have said the
    		same, and if we don't stop
    		them, we won't be able to
    		save Myona! Right, Cage?
    
    Cage:		Yeah, of course!
    
    Semyl:		Y'alls need to be a little more 
    		serious about this stuff! You 
    		mess up and we all go down!
    
    Razma:		What, that's what you're 
    		worried about? I don't want
    		to die either, but it's already
    		clear what we have to do.
    		there's nothing to fear any
    		longer.
    
    Mebius:		Being prepared for the worst
    		isn't enough - it needs to go
    		a step further, and become
    		determination.
    
    Warren:		Deckson never told us that
    		we had to win. I think that
    		maybe what was most
    		important to him wasw that
    		each and every one of us
    		strive to achieve what we
    		truly believe in.
    
    Mebius:		He always used to say, 'Life
    		has many choices, but no
    		answers...' We make up our
    		own answers. That's how we
    		go on living.
    
    Cage:		Maybe it isn't 'correct' to do
    		what we are about to do. But
    		regardless, the answer that
    		we came up with this time is
    		to stop them.
    
    Semyl:		That's our answer...! Okay!
    		Let's get this show on the
    		road, then!
    
    		(Boss.... I really miss having 
    		you around.... But I'll do my
    		best, you watch!)
    
    Razma:		(.....Semyl...)
    
    
    ##### Scene 21: A Faint Light from the Depths #####
    
    Yukito:		'The unseen enemy...' It's 
    		pretty symbolic to us, isn't 
    		it.
    
    Warren:		Well, that's for us to expose,
    		to make visible. Is it not?
    		
    Yukito:		...I suppose so. Shall we go
    		ahead and show them what
    		we're made of...
    
    Twede, inside Calibur with Robin
    
    Twede:		The 3 hour time limit made by
    		Ares has not fulfilled its
    		term, but judging from the
    		rate of increase of energy
    		level, my calculations show
    		that they will be ready to
    		fire in approximately 15 
    		minutes.
    
    Razma:		We have no obligation to be
    		on time.
    
    Semyl:		At any rate, what we're doing 
    		is finding them out here, 
    		right?
    
    Robin:		Yes. We must ddestroy them
    		all! Come on!
    
    Cage:		It's dangerous. You shouldn't 
    		be out in front.
    
    Robin:		It doesn't work that way,
    		Cage. Deckson gave up his
    		life for the people of Mars....
    		I can't be the only one hiding
    		for safety!
    
    Ned (still bodiless and a brain) in Ravana appears
    
    Ned:		<<cackle>> Finally!
    
    Razma:		Ned! You again!
    
    Ned:		That's my line! Always
    		appearing before me to ruin
    		my game! Heh heh! But
    		Deckson finally went down,
    		eh? What a moron! He threw
    		away his one and only life
    		for those people who live on
    		this planet!?
    
    Mebius:		...Well, I wouldn't expect you
    		to begin to understand what
    		it was that he felt he needed
    		to protect.
    
    Ned:		Hah! I don't give a hoot!
    
    Semyl:		Stop while you're still ahead...
    		We're trying to keep our
    		cool, but inside we're just
    		about ready to go off!
    
    Cage:		The control device for the 
    		stealth in the area is
    		installed in that frame...
    		Sorry, but I can't let Myona
    		be subjected to that process
    		again! But before I find her
    		and stop it from happening....
    		I'll have to break your
    		brand-new frame into little
    		bits!
    
    Ned:		Hey, go for it! Heh, heh! Come
    		on, give it your best shot!
    
    Warren:		...Once we destroy Ned's 
    		frame, we should be able to
    		locate the OF. After that,
    		we'll render it ineffective
    		thereby preventing the attack
    		on West Hellas...! But don't
    		forget, there are invisible
    		enemies out here. Proceeed
    		with caution!
    
    Cage:		OK!
    
    Warren:		(Here we go.... Deckson!)
    
    COMMENCE BATTLE
    
    Once the enemies on stealth appear:
    
    Cage:		There they are! Come on,
    		Pharsti!
    
    Pharsti:	Roger that; I am ready!
    
    When Cage attacks Ned
    
    Ned:		Heh! Not bad!
    
    Ned increases spirit
    
    After defeating Ned
    
    Ned:		Owch! OW! Hey!
    		OWWWWWWWWWW! Dammit! I'll....
    		I'll SUE you!!
    
    Cage:		Sorry - that won't work, I
    		don't even legally exist on
    		Mars.
    
    Pharsti:	The stealth operating system 
    		on the enemy machine is
    		losing power. The field will be
    		eradicated shortly.
    
    Ned::		Rrrghh!! Shush! Don't you use
    		that tone of voice withm e!!!
    		...I'll get you for
    		thisssssss!!!!!
    
    Ned leaves
    
    Cage:		(Up, up, and away....)
    
    Pharsti:	The field has been eradicated.
    		The enemy frame in hiding
    		should appear.
    		
    Myona's OF appears
    
    Cage:		That's... Myona! Myonaaaaa!
    		Can you hear me?
    
    Myona:		.......
    
    Cage:		You can, can't you? Please,
    		say something - anything!
    
    more Unmanned Raptors appear
    
    Amante:		Hee, hee!! It's no use! She's
    		just a puppet now, you know.
    		She can't even hear what her
    		boyfriend has to say!
    
    Cage:		Amante! What did you.... Why!?
    
    Amante:		What do you think? The
    		prototype OF Nerokerubina,
    		and the masive* canon
    		Marlblanke... complete with
    		Zephyrs' Mindflow system. It's
    		not just another OF with a
    		big bullet shooter, you know.
    		
    		(Nobody needs to know that
    		it's an old model with a few
    		new additions...)
    		
    		Your little girlfrriend has
    		already gone through the full
    		compatibility program, so at
    		this point she's nothing more
    		than a single component of
    		the Marlblanke!
    		
    * - that's how it was spelled -_-;
    
    Cage:		Shoot! It was you! You took
    		Myona by force and...
    
    Amante:		Hmmmmm? It's always someone
    		else's fault, isn't it Cage? You
    		know who drove her to this
    		point...? The answer is: Y-O-U.
    		Cage, you did it to her.
    
    Cage:		...That's a lie...
    
    Amante:		Brother and Sister, who have
    		nobody else in this entire
    		world. Sister understands how
    		Brother feels, though he has
    		gone to extremes and is
    		involved in criminal acts.... 'If
    		I can't stop him, I must at
    		least continue to suffer for
    		all the sins.... This is the
    		least I can do...' Isn't the
    		love between siblings so
    		beautiful? It just makes me
    		want to cry.
    
    		...Only because it's so 
    		hilarious.
    
    Pharsti:	Energy accumulation at the
    		base of the reactor is almost
    		complete! It's dangerous! If
    		things continue this way, we
    		will be blown away before all
    		of West Hellas!
    
    Cage:		No... Myona wanted this?
    
    Amante:		Can you not say 'base of the
    		reactor?' It has a cool name, 
    		you know. 'Marlblanke!'
    
    Cage:		No! I refuse to believe that!
    		Myona, wait there...I'm going
    		to rescue you.....! Okay. First
    		I have to destroy that
    		reactor thingie....
    
    Amante:		(Do they EVER listen to what
    		I'm saying...?)
    		
    		It's totally useless. Ares calls
    		it 'hyperalignment,' but her
    		brain and the Metatron
    		computer on the OF are
    		completely linked by the
    		Communicator. By doing that,
    		it's possible to reach
    		unimaginably high levels of
    		effectiveness, and that's
    		what's called the Marlblanke 
    		Effect. The collaboration of
    		those two things makes it
    		really strong, and it
    		transcends even physics. The
    		shield becomes super strong.
    		For instance....
    		
    Amante attacks Myona, but is seemed uneffected
    
    Amante:		...see?
    
    Cage:		S-stop it! Please stop that!
    
    Amante:		Hee, hee! Aww... You're so
    		cute. That's such a turn-on....
    		Okay, maybe I'll just give you
    		a little hint because you're
    		so cute. Do you want to know
    		how to cut off the link
    		between them?
    
    Cage:		How!!
    
    Amante:		It's actually really easy
    		<<giggle>>. All you have to
    		do is get rid of the central
    		defense unit.
    
    Cage:		The central defense...? Is
    		that.... You mean...!
    		
    Amante:		Exactamundo! All you have to 
    		do is destroy the cockpit on
    		this frame! See, wasn't that
    		simple? Will the hero save the
    		futures of thousands of
    		people... Or his girlfriend's
    		life?? Heh heh.... Have fun
    		deciding! ...But I'm supposed
    		to be defending us too, so if
    		you take too long, I might
    		just kill you.
    
    Cage:		(Er.... I have to do
    		something.... If I give up now,
    		Deckson would never forgive
    		me!)
    
    		I have to get Myona sane
    		again....
    
    COMMENCE BATTLE
    
    After defeating Amante
    
    Amante:		No wayyyy! They got us
    		again? Awww! I hate when
    		that happens! Oh, but it's 
    		more fun with just that one
    		anyway. <<giggle>> I'm going
    		to go and see what
    		happens....
    		
    Amante retreats
    
    When Cage tries to attack Myona:
    
    Pharsti:	Cage?!
    
    Cage:		...If I can get to the ractor,
    		I can stop it....
    		
    Pharsti:	It is too dangerous!
    
    Cage:		Don't worry! Trust me!
    
    Pharsti:	...I trust you.
    
    Myona:		Damages Inconsequential....
    		Able To Continue Battle....
    
    Pharsti:	The enemy shield is
    		preventing us from making
    		any effective attack.
    		Cage...The only way is to
    		attack the cockpit... If you
    		would give me the command, I
    		will...
    		
    Cage:		No! There is another way!
    		There's gotta be! There's 
    		gotta be......
    
    Pharsti:	......
    
    then it would continue to the rest of the lines:
    		
    
    OR When Cage is a block away from Myona, the dialogues
    will begin here:
    
    Myona:		...Who...? You... Are An
    		Obstacle To Myself And My
    		Brother.... You... Must Be...
    		Destroyed!
    
    Cage:		Myona! Can't you tell?! We're
    		on the same side, now stop
    		that!
    
    Pharsti:	.........
    
    Cage:		Pharsti? What happened?!
    
    Pharsti:	...Cage, I am attacking the
    		cockpit now!
    		
    Cage:		No! I won't allow it!
    
    Pharsti:	...Cage, I myself am a part of 
    		her so... I understand....
    
    Cage:		Pharsti... You....
    
    Pharsti:	I would rather do this to
    		myself... than let you see me
    		like this... and hurt
    		everybody....
    
    Cage:		No! Pharsti, wait. Please listen
    		to me!!
    
    Pharsti:	Cage... I am sorry. There is 
    		no other way.... It's too
    		late.... You, and the whole
    		city, are going to be burned
    		down!
    
    Pharsti is about to attack Myona, but someone appears
    
    ????:		Stop! It's not too late! It's 
    		never too late!
    
    Pharsti:	That sounds like....
    
    Cage:		Phil? Is that you, Phil?
    
    Phil:		We don't have time to chat, I
    		got it... It's not just you! If 
    		you attack, both the frame
    		and Myona will go too... It 
    		can't take much more!!
    
    Cage:		Wh! What?!
    
    Phil:		I might have an idea as to 
    		how to get rid of the link.
    		Let me give it a shot! Hold on
    		Myona... I'll help you out!
    
    Cage:		(That's right... Phil was good
    		with computers... Maybe he
    		will be able to do something!)
    
    Phil cuts of energy flow from Myona's Nerokerubina
    
    Myona:		The Energy...?! External Force
    		Cutting Off Energy Flow...?
    
    Phil:		Great! I was able to purge
    		the energy flow system! It's
    		useless now!
    
    Pharsti:	Miss Myona's OF is
    		demonstrating a rapid energy
    		decrease! It worked! The
    		energy burst cannot be
    		performed!
    
    Cage:		Phil!! You did it!!!
    
    Phil:		Myona! Come with me! Come
    		on!!
    
    Myona:		Ugggg... gg... uhhhhhh!
    
    Cage:		Myona...!
    
    Pharsti:	When Mr. Phil intervened in
    		the activity of Miss Myona's
    		OF, it upset the balance of
    		the alignment. We may be able
    		to help Miss Myona regain
    		her sanity, if we work
    		quickly!
    
    Cage:		Really?!
    
    Amante reappears and maneuvers towards Phil
    
    Amante:		...You can't run away from
    		home and then repay us with
    		trouble! Bad boy! Hee, hee...
    		Somebody needs to discipline
    		him....

    		(...Deckson... I'm sorry...
    		Father... Everybody... I'll be
    		with all of you... soon....)
    
    Phil's LEV explodes along with him
    
    Cage:		Phillllll!!!
    
    Myona:		(Was that...?)
    
    		Ca... ge? Cage, is that you?
    		
    Cage:		M-Myona!? Is it really you?
    
    Amante:		(AWH! Bo - ring!! Ah well. It
    		happens. She can go and have
    		a little talk to Mr. Silly for a
    		little while. But if they don't

    		Yup. Strategy Alpha has been

    Amante:		We're done here, so I guess

    Semyl:		All right!
    
    Razma:		Heh.... We did it, Boss!
    
    Mebius:		Phil... came back to help us
    		out in the end.... We couldn't
    		have done it without
    		everyone.
    
    Yukito:		Phil... he was a good kid.
    
    Semyl:		...Yeah.
    
    Robin:		Hey. We succeeded in stopping
    		Ares and his group... We did
    		suffer some major losses, but
    		we were also able to save 
    		countless valuable human
    		lives! Everyone did a great
    		job, and.... I'm sure that

    		proud.
    
    Cage:		(Phil.... It was my fault that I
    		wasn't able to understand
    		what you were going

    Warren:		In the end, Phil saved all of

    Razma:		I don't think that Phil
    		betrayed us.... He was just
    		desperate. Other people
    		probably thin he's an idiot,
    		but he put his own life on
    		the line, looking for his ideal

    Semyl:		First Boss, now Phil.... Man.
    		this is real sad.
    
    Robin:		Yes.... It is very tragic.
    
    Mebius:		We have to remember them

    Yukito:		Because of them, many lives

    Pharsti:	At this point in time,
    		technically speaking, we are
    		not the same entity. I may be
    		more similar to her offspring
    		or perhaps a clone.

    Cage:		O-Oh........
    
    Pharsti:	...That is due to the fact that

    Twede:		This time 'accuracy' was
    		demonstrated - by
    		obliterating a surveillance
    		satellite.
    
    Razma:		They shot one satellite from
    		the ground? Precise aiming
    		capability too, eh. That
    		machine is just insane.
    
    Robin:		Twede, please hurry to locate
    		the origin of the beam.
    
    Twede:		Certainly. It is the oxygen
    		plant on the Hellas Sea.
    
    Semyl:		...I gotta ask. How is it that
    		you always got the 411
    		before anyone else?
    
    Twede:		Magician's Rule #1: Never
    		reveal your trade secrets.
    
    Semyl:		Hunh??
    
    Razma:		So there IS a trick.
    
    Warren:		Never mind that, the 
    		Earthlings are going to start
    		acting soon. Do you think the
    		UNSF will begin attacking the
    		plant?
    
    Robin:		The chances of that are...
    		low.
    
    Twede:		They would surely avoid
    		running the risk of damaging
    		the oxygen plant, although I
    		do not imagine that it would
    		be out of concern for the
    		well-being of the Martians. I
    		would think that they would
    		attack first, then attempt to
    		control the situation. That
    		also gives them a reason to
    		send in a large military
    		body.
    
    Mebius:		Either way, I can already see
    		that a poor scenario would
    		arise for the Mars side...
    
    Warren:		I'm sure those over in
    		West Hellas are busy trying
    		to escape themselves, rather
    		than working on trying to 
    		stop them.
    
    Yukito:		If they could get away in
    		time, that's fine... But I don't
    		think all of them are going to
    		make it.
    
    Warren:		(Is it just me... or is their
    		strategy too overt? Why
    		would they advertise what
    		they are goingto do? It
    		could be a threat... Or
    		perhaps Ares is just getting
    		over excited...?)
    
    Cage:		We're going to stop them,
    		aren't we? There isn't enough
    		time.
    
    Robin:		This used to be a cargo ship.
    		There won't be any problem
    		zipping over that short
    		distance.
    
    Razma:		You mean we're going to fly
    		there? Are we going to make
    		it in time?
    
    Robin:		<<giggle>> You have no faith
    		in me! I knew this would
    		happen sooner or later, so I
    		made sure to add some extra
    		features to this ship.
    
    Semyl:		Speeding across Mars.... It's 
    		real dangerous, but I knew
    		Robin would be prepared!
    
    Robin:		What, no 'Ms.?' I like that,
    		Semyl. That's the way it
    		should be.
    
    Twede:		Still, it is virtually an antique
    		and such action would
    		consume all its energy -
    		there is no denying that the 
    		plan is risky. Even if we did
    		arrive at the desired
    		location, it would not be able
    		to move for at least a while.
    
    Warren:		(At any rate, this needs to
    		stop now...)
    
    		A one-way ticket to the final
    		showdown. It's not much of a 
    		dilemma.
    
    Yukito:		Hey, hey. We're not going
    		there just to die, you know?
    		Deckson's already gone, and
    		if you go too, who's gonna
    		look after all these guys?
    
    Warren:		...Heh. I am not going to die.
    		Deckson, Phil... That's more
    		than enough. Nobody else is
    		going to die.
    
    Yukito:		Yeah. I think so too.
    
    		But Pops, keep your eye on
    		Mebius, will you.
    
    Warren:		Whah...!
    
    Yukito:		How long have we known each
    		other? You didn't think I
    		wouldn't notice.
    
    Warren:		...I don't expect anything to
    		happen between us. I trust
    		her as a colleague, and I am
    		concerned for her safety.
    		That's all.
    
    Yukito:		Mr. Cool as usual... You like it
    		that way, don't you?
    
    Warren: 	...Yeah.
    
    Cage:		What are you two whispering
    		about?
    
    Razma:		You see, Cage, in this world
    		there are things we will
    		never understand, like
    		forbidden love. We should 
    		support them in their
    		choices.
    
    Mebius:		Forbidden... love...?! Oh my!!
    		You two.... Is that true...? I
    		had no idea....
    
    Warren:		W-w-w-w-wait! No! It's not
    		like......Yukito! You tell them!
    
    Yukito:		Razma, behave yourself. I've
    		been keeping it a secret all
    		this time... I'm so
    		embarrassed... Am I blushing?
    
    Warren:		Just.... Ach! Never mind!!!
    		...Razmaaaaa!
    		
    Razma:		Y-yes!!
    
    Warren:		Come with me... We are going 
    		to have a little pre-battle
    		warm-up session. You rely on
    		your guns too much... I'll
    		rough you up a bit, show you
    		what you need! Yukito! You
    		too! There's no time! Hurry!
    
    Razma:		Aw, man. Do I have to...?
    
    Warren and Razma leaves the bridge
    
    Yukito:		Mebius, isn't Pops a fun guy
    		to hang out with? ...I think
    		you two would really hit it
    		off. He's actually not a bad
    		guy either.
    
    Mebius:		<<giggle>> I know. Don't 
    		make fun of him too much.
    		He'll implode.
    
    Yukito:		Just my strategy to get
    		everyone riled up. See ya.
    		
    Yukito exits
    
    Cage:		Such a fun bunch of people.
    
    Mebius:		Yes, but they're all hurting
    		inside. But we can't stop and
    		think about that until all the
    		tragedies on Mars have been
    		averted. For the people we
    		owe our 'today' to.
    
    Cage:		Yes... You're right.
    
    Semyl:		(Dang! ...Don't cry, Semyl....
    		Don't do it... Dang! Dang!!)
    
    		W-What are you talking
    		about? You can't be thinking
    		about them. You're always
    		saying 'Myona...' in your 
    		sleep.
    
    Cage:		What? No! You're lying! You're
    		lying, right?
    
    Semyl:		<<laughing>> Just jivin'!
    		Playin' with ya! ...But you're 
    		supposed to be thinking of
    		Myona.
    
    		That's your job.... You gotta
    		think of her enough for both
    		you and Phil...
    
    Cage:		(Phil....)
    
    		Yeah... I agree. But there are
    		lots of other lives on the line
    		too. We have to save all of
    		them!
    
    Semyl:		Oh? So forceful all of a 
    		sudden. Keep it up, I'll be
    		watchin' you!
    
    		(Now hat Boss isn't here no
    		more... we gotta give it our
    		all.)
    		
    Twede:		Main engines and sub engines
    		are functioning optimally;
    		terrestrial defense thruster
    		has been confirmed. Radars
    		and sensors all normal. Due
    		to the energy situation, it is
    		unknown how many of these
    		devices will be functioning
    		normally. They will also surely
    		attack, and Saoshyant has no
    		defense mechanisms.... It's
    		very risky, Dana.
    
    Robin:		No problem. The important
    		thing is that everybody gets
    		there in time. And... Twede?
    
    Twede:		Yes? 
    
    Robin:		I am not 'Dana' anymore; I am
    		'Captain Robin,' understand?
    
    Twede:		.........
    
    Robin:		What? You got a problem with
    		that?!
    
    Twede:		...Ppppffffttt...! CAPTAIN....
    		Robin? Er, certainly, Captain.
    		...And I shall be happy just
    		being 'Mister Twede.'
    
    Robin:		(Are you making fun of me?!
    		You just watch!!)
    
    Mebius:		It's almost time.
    
    Semyl:		OK Cap'n Robin! What's the
    		good word?
    
    Robin:		(Deckson... You should have
    		been here, doing this.... But
    		I'll take care of it. Don't
    		worry!)
    
    Captain Robin:	OK! Listen up! Destination:
    		Oxygen plant on the Hellas
    		Sea! I order the BIS mobile
    		headquarters Saoshyant to.....
    
    		Proceed!!
    
    From Ghost Town, Saoshyant heads towards Oxygen plant

    |Some Room                 \____________________
    
    Amante:		I'm baaaack! Just as I was
    		instructed, I came back
    		alone.
    
    Amante was talking to a guy with glasses, 
    light blue hair wearing a cap
    
    ??????:		Good work, Miss Amante.
    		Please get some rest.
    		
    Amante:		OK! Um, Jimmer, how is the
    		plan coming along, anyway?
    
    Jummer:		Vale's television appearance
    		proved extremely effective.
    		Both he and his sister are
    		wonderful, and there is no
    		greater happiness for me
    		than to have them entrusted
    		to my care. I would enjoy 
    		nothing more than to see the
    		plan to its conclusion.... I am
    		very disappointed that it's
    		not possible for me to do
    		so.
    
    Amante:		Hm.... You're kinda weird,
    		Jimmer. Or should I say that
    		you are just a sicko?
    
    Jimmer:		Heh heh.... I'll take that as a 
    		compliment. You don't mind, do
    		you?
    
    Amante:		Go ahead... Well, I'm all
    		sweaty, so I'm going to hop
    		in the shower. See ya.
    
    Jimmer:		....Freedom to Mars... Heh
    		heh...
    		
    		(So... Time to get ready to get
    		out of here.)
    
    ##### Scene 22: Heaven-Bound Wings #####
    
    Cage:		The sea! Wow.... I've never 
    		seen it this close up!
    
    Semyl:		Whoa! We're there already...?
    		What's with this long road
    		that goes all the way over
    		that way...?
    
    Mebius:		That would be the connecting
    		bridge to the Plant area.
    		There should be thick cables
    		and pipes running under it.
    
    Robin:		This is as much as the 
    		stealth device on Saoshyant 
    		can do. From this point forth,
    		we just have to charge
    		ahead. Twede, please go
    		full-speed from here!
    
    Twede:		Roger, Da.... Ahem! ...Captain.
    
    Saoshyant goes forward, midway Unmanned Raptors surround
    them
    
    Cage:		We've been ambushed??!
    
    Mebius:		Not at all surprising. We
    		never expected that they
    		would let us through that
    		easily.
    
    Durandal II, Justeen, and Dreizehn goes out in 
    Saoshyant's defense
    
    Razma:		Dang!! That's quite a 
    		reception, bro!
    
    Warren:		Don't let your guard down.
    		Saoshyant has no defense
    		mechanisms. Once they get in,
    		it's over.
    
    Yukito:		We have to fight while
    		protecting Saoshyant and
    		making sure that nobody gets
    		too close.
    
    Testament, Orcrist, Caliburnus, Calibur, and Vjaya
    goes out as well surrounding Saoshyant in circle
    
    Semyl:		We can't go into the sea, can
    		we?
    
    Mebius:		It is waterproofed, but we
    		don't know how its tolerance 
    		is to seawater.
    
    Semyl:		Yeah, yeah, it's a bit 
    		low-budget that way.
    
    Robin:		...Hey, sorry. Luxuries can
    		spoil a person, you know.
    		Instead of complaining, how
    		about coming up with a
    		decision based on what we do
    		have?
    
    Twede:		Robin, how many times must I
    		tell you this? Please, stay
    		inside.
    
    Robin:		Absolutely not. How many
    		times do I have to tell YOU?
    
    Twede:		Please do not act like a
    		child.
    
    Robins:		There aren't any weapons
    		inside anyway. I might as well
    		protect it from outside.
    
    Twede:		<<sigh>>
    
    Cage:		Look! It's...
    
    Myona appears in Nerokerubina
    
    Myona:		...We Will Eradicate All Who
    		Stand In Our Way.
    
    Cage:		Myona!
    
    Myona:		Myona? I Am Pharsti. What
    		Are You Talking About?
    
    Cage:		Fine, maybe your name is
    		Pharsti. But if that's true,
    		you don't need that OF!
    		You're here only to let that
    		machine take advantage of
    		your mind, and control it to
    		make you obey them! If that's
    		'Pharsti,' then 'Pharsti' is not
    		even a person! Pharsti
    		doesn't exist!
    
    		Myona! Can you hear me?
    		Your name doesn't matter. 
    		Either way, I'm coming to get
    		you... The real you!
    
    Myona:		The Re... al..... Me...?
    		Uggghghh! Pa... in.... My
    		Head.... My He... ad....
    
    Cage:		Pharsti! Come on!
    
    Pharsti:	(Is there a real Pharsti...?)
    
    Cage:		What's wrong?
    
    Pharsti:	...No, it's nothing.
    
    Cage:		Are you sure? Please help me
    		rescue Myona. I'm counting on
    		you.
    
    Pharsti:	Cage.
    
    Cage:		Mm-hmm?
    
    Pharsti:	(I want to protect you. That
    		is all I want. That is all I will
    		ever want.)
    
    		There is no need to request
    		my assistance. Your wish is
    		my command.
    
    Cage:		Thanks, Pharsti! Ready?
    
    COMMENCE BATTLE
    
    When Cage attacks or moves beside Myona
    
    Cage:		Myona! Can you hear me?
    
    Myona:		...Ggggh.... Stop Calling Me By 
    		That Name!
    
    Pharsti:	Cage! Something very massive
    		is heading in this direction!
    		How do we respond?!
    
    Cage:		That's the HarutMarut that we 
    		fought against at the TV 
    		station!
    
    Zephyrs:	Heh heh... We meet again!
    
    Cage:		Zephyrs! How did you get
    		here? I thought you shot an
    		official and then were
    		injured... I heard that you
    		were in the hospital.
    
    Zephyrs:	I wanted to see all of you
    		again so badly that I escaped
    		together with this beauty. And
    		that beam of light that was
    		on TV.... Who knew that it had
    		that kind of use.... Metatron
    		is absolutely a wonderful
    		discovery! I... If I could
    		analyze that, it would pave
    		the way for further
    		developments in weapons 
    		technology! Once that
    		happens, the cretins over on
    		Earth will not be able to deny
    		my accomplishments.... My
    		genius!!
    
    Cage:		(He seems off somehow...
    		Perhaps he's not well yet?)
    		
    		No offense, but I don't have
    		time to be dealing with you.
    		Please get out of my way!
    
    Myona:		...New Enemy Sighted,
    		Beginning Attack.
    
    Zephyrs:	(Is that #479 on that OF? Ah...
    		That's the frame housing the
    		Mindflow component.........
    		Perfect.)
    
    		Heh heh heh....Hey, don't be
    		that way. This is a happy
    		reunion for us; let me show
    		you something very
    		interesting!
    
    Swirling aura surrounds HarutMarut, then it goes
    the same for Nerokerubina
    
    Myona:		EEEEEEeeeeeeeekkkkkkkk!!
    
    Cage:		Myonaaaaa!
    
    Zephyrs:	I'll show you what
    		the 'Self Binder' really is.
    		Now, #479, can you hear me?
    		
    Myona:		D-Doctor Zephyrs?
    
    Zephyrs:	Heh heh.... Yes, #479. This is
    		my first command to you in a 
    		long time. Burn it... Burn
    		everything!!
    
    Cage:		Myona! Zephyrs! What did you
    		do to her?!
    
    Zephyrs:	What did I do to her? Who do
    		you think you are... I'll make
    		you pay for entrapping me!
    
    Myona maneuvers Nerokerubina beside HarutMarut
    
    Myona:		...Command... Confirmed. All
    		Frames Not Registered As Ally
    		Within Battle Area Will Be
    		Destroyed. Action Finalized.
    
    More Unmanned Raptors and Cyclops appear
    
    Cage:		Darn, it's the brainwashing
    		system.... What am I supposed
    		to do?!
    
    Pharsti:	There are interference waves
    		emanating from HarutMarut. If
    		they can be intercepted or
    		stopped, Miss Myona may
    		emerge from her trance.
    
    Cage:		Really??
    
    Pharsti:	Yes. either the origin or the
    		receiving end must be
    		rendered inoperable.
    
    Cage:		Myona or Zephyrs... Which
    		machine should we attack...? I
    		have to be really careful
    		about this...
    
    COMMENCE BATTLE
    
    After defeating Zephyrs
    
    Zephyrs:	Heh heh heh... Animus... To
    		think it would respond this
    		well to a human beside Vale.
    		Brilliant! Utilizing Metatron,
    		humans can be elevated to a
    		whole new level of being. This
    		is exactly what I have been
    		searching for... Angel's wings
    		that will take me to
    		paradise!!
    
    Cage:		What you've been searching
    		for? And you made Myona and
    		Ares suffer for that?! No,
    		that's not all. Nameless
    		children too, just for your
    		whim.... That's not what angel
    		wings will do! That is pure
    		evil!
    
    Zephyrs:	Not much difference really,
    		between angels and evil
    		forces.
    
    Cage:		There's a big difference!
    
    Zephyrs:	Ah, you are so simple. To me,
    		god is cruel and
    		unsympathetic being.... Death
    		began to take many forms
    		once humans were given
    		tools. So? Even now, the
    		solar system is teeming with
    		useless people. And now, with
    		the advent of Metatron, a
    		new battle is about to 
    		unfold..... But even this
    		struggle is paving the way
    		for human advancement and
    		betterment.
    
    Cage:		Are you saying that it's God's
    		will? And that He created
    		Metatron for that purpose?
    
    Zephyrs:	Once you get past all the
    		personal feelings, it becomes
    		clear that the things that are
    		useful to the general
    		populace as a whole
    		survive.... And those that
    		aren't, don't. If that is not
    		how nature works, how is it
    		that humans have survived
    		until now? Why is it that evil
    		happens? Because it is God's
    		will.
    
    Cage:		That's not true!
    
    Zephyrs:	Time will tell. Regardless of
    		what you say, the one who is
    		left standing in the end is
    		the one who is correct.
    		That's just the way it is,
    		always...
    
    Cage:		The one left standing...?
    
    Zephyrs:	I, I wanted to... be a genius.
    		I wanted only to... be better
    		than every... one else.... That
    		any... one... Hardiman.... I
    		wanted to ...be.... be... tter...
    		that....
    	
    HarutMarut suddenly explodes
    
    Cage:		<<gasp!>>
    
    Pharsti:	His life as a human was
    		already over. The entity with
    		whom we conversed was a
    		soulless prisoner of
    		Metatron.
    
    Cage:		What do you mean? He was...
    		a ghost??
    
    Pharsti:	No. I imagine that it may be
    		something that not even he
    		understands, a side effect of
    		Metatron on the human form.
    
    Cage:		(Will that... happen to me too,
    		if I sped too much time in
    		here? ...Nah.... No, that
    		couldn't be. Never.)
    
    Myona:		Ugggg.... What... did I...
    
    Cage:		Myona! Great! You're back!
    
    Myona:		Uhhh.... I don't know... who?
    		Who... am I? Gghhhh!
    	
    Cage:		Myona?!
    
    Myona:		R-Retreat!
    
    Myona retreats
    
    Cage:		M, Myona! ...It didn't work....
    
    Pharsti:	Cage...
    
    Cage:		...Is the real Myona inside of
    		her really beginning to
    		fade...? Pharsti... Do you think
    		I can really do it? Do I have
    		what it takes to save Myona
    		in time...?
    
    Pharsti:	Affirmative. Your feelings will
    		get through to her. I
    		guarantee it.
    
    Cage:		...Thanks.
    
    After the battle
    
    Cage:		It's all ov.....
    
    Pharsti:	Come on, Cage.
    
    Cage:		Yeah... all right.... We have to
    		hurry...
    
    Bridge
    
    Robin:		Zephyrs... You're alive.
    
    Twede:		It appears that he had
    		directly linked his own body
    		to the OF in order to
    		maneuver it.
    
    Robin:		He linked himself...? Is that
    		possible?
    
    Mebius:		He was consumed by
    		Metatron.... He could no
    		longer see beyond it.
    
    Robin:		That's frightening. Twede, how
    		are we on time?
    
    Twede:		We are just about out of
    		time. Still, we should be able 
    		to make it.
    
    Semyl:		You sure?
    
    Twede:		It is my job to be sure.
    
    Semyl:		The man with the plan! Mmmm,
    		I like that.
    
    Robin:		He's taken.
    
    Twede:		D-Dana?!
    
    Mebius:		I knew it!! I just knew it. So
    		how long has this been going
    		on?
    		
    Robin:		<<giggle>> Emotional matters
    		are always changing.
    		Yesterday to today, today to
    		tommorow.
    
    Semyl:		We gotta hurry! Stop Ares 
    		and get Myona outta there!
    		
    Cage:		Yeah.... This is probably our
    		last chance.
    
    Razma:		The final round....
    
    Yukito:		We should make sure to run
    		a thorough check of all the
    		frames. It's not like I'm
    		getting scaredm but for better
    		or worse, this is the last
    		one.
    
    Mebius:		Agreed. You can never have
    		too much concentration at a
    		time like this. We have to do
    		it for Deckson and Phil, too.
    
    Cage:		(Myona.... wait for me....)
    
    [ SCENE22 CLEARED ]
    
    Marine Overpass
    
    Saoshyant heads to Oxygen Plant
    
    Bridge
    
    Mebius:		Are you done with the
    		maintenance check?
    
    Yukito:		Yeah, I think so. Immediately
    		preceding the final showdown,
    		he concentrates his entire
    		being to this one task..... Man,
    		I am a true Maintenance
    		Superstar!
    
    Semyl:		Always talking dumb crap, but
    		he can get it together wherer
    		it counts. Respect. Compared
    		to other peeps I know...
    
    Razma:		Whuh! Why are you looking at
    		me like that!? I helped out
    		too!
    
    Semyl:		(<<sigh>>... Whatever. He WAS
    		tryin'. Chill, Semyl.)
    
    Razma:		What? Why are you smiling
    		now?
    
    Semyl:		I! I'm not! It's nothing!
    
    Mebius:		Hee, hee....Oh, I see it now. Is
    		that it?
    
    Warren:		.... Yeah. Now that is what I
    		would call the 'Tenno Mountain
    		which divides ground and
    		sky.'
    
    Cage:		Tenno Mountain?
    
    Yukito:		It's the name of a mountain
    		in a place called Japan, found
    		on Earth. It means a point
    		where outcomes and destiny
    		are decided.
    
    Cage:		Destiny...hmm...
    
    Yukito kicks Cage to his senses
    
    Cage:		Whoa!
    
    Yukito:		You are facing a conflict! I
    		sense it!!
    
    Cage:		Well, yes..... I really would
    		much rather not fight. To
    		fight against Ares... But then
    		again....
    
    Yukito:		Hey, Cage. Define 'friendship.'
    
    Cage:		Hunh?.... I don't know,
    		someone who cares?
    
    Yukito:		Not a bad answer. But this is
    		how I see it. Anyone who's
    		only around in happy times is
    		not a friend. When you're
    		really suffering, or
    		struggling, just giving you a
    		pep talk isn't enough either.
    		A friend is someone who can
    		tell you honestly all that's
    		not good about you...don't you
    		agree?
    
    Cage:		What's not good about you...a 
    		friend?
    
    Yukito:		Between true friends, there
    		is no need to watch how you
    		act; see how they respond. A
    		person who can't criticize
    		you honestly doesn't deserve
    		to be called a friend. That's
    		just an aquaintance. What do 
    		you think?
    
    Cage:		I don't know... But I do want 
    		to tell Ares that what he;s 
    		doing is wrong. Even if it
    		makes him dislike me...
    
    Yukito:		Here's a tip. There are no
    		definites in this world. If
    		anyone says that he is
    		definitely right, he's already
    		wrong. Isn't that a pretty
    		simple rule of thumb?
    
    Cage:		You and Warren are friends?
    
    Yukito:		Heh heh... Well, he does tell
    		me I suck all the time.
    
    Warren:		Twede, maintain this pace and
    		pass over it.
    
    Twede:		....Understood. After it has
    		passed that point, I will make
    		Saoshyant retreat to outside
    		the immediate battle area on
    		auto-pilot.
    
    Mebius:		I would think that there is a 
    		lot of oxygen, won't it affect
    		the flight?
    
    Twede:		I had been concerned about
    		the volume of oxygen in the
    		vicinity, but they themselves
    		have limited plant function, to
    		the point that fire hazard
    		has been eliminated. It is
    		highly likely that they did this
    		in preparation for
    		'Marlblanke.'
    
    Mebius:		All right then. Come on,
    		everyone!
    
    Razma:		Hunh? We're going right
    		through, right? How is that
    		going to work?
    
    Warren:		At the closest point, we'll
    		jump on.
    
    Semyl:		OK, wait just a minute there.
    		What! Maybe with an OF, but
    		there ain't no way "Cali' can
    		swing those acrobatics!
    
    Mebius:		You're aware that Saoshyant
    		has no defense mechanisms,
    		right? Down there is the sea,
    		and we don't have time to
    		board the normal way
    		anyway.
    
    Semyl:		Yeah, I guess...but....
    
    Cage:		That's true.... If we are
    		surrounded by enemies like
    		what happened a little while
    		ago, it would be trouble.
    
    Warren:		We'll pair off LEVs with OFs.
    		It should be adequate if they
    		move in tandem. Let's put two
    		OFs on Caliburnus.
    
    Razma:		Uno, dos, tres.....Hm? We're
    		missing a frame? What about
    		Calibur? Wait. Where is
    		Ms.....Robin?
    
    Twede:		............
    
    A bashing sound
    
    Cage:		No way... in there?
    
    Razma:		Good one....but I just don't
    		know about locking her up in
    		the storage room....
    
    Twede:		Please, do not let it bother
    		you.
    		
    Cage:		Er? But...
    
    Robin:		TwEDe!! TWEDE!! You're not
    		going to get away with doing
    		this to me!
    
    Twede:		Please remain quiet until this
    		battle is over.
    
    Mebius:		You're right, we can't trouble
    		her any more than we already have.
    
    Robin:		Traitorrrrrr!!!!!
    
    Semyl:		.....Don't get me wrong, I knew
    		it from the get-go, but you're
    		not half as aloof as you come
    		off.
    
    Twede:		No, it is my -
    
    Semy/Raz:	This is NOT your job!!
    
    Twede:		Er.......
    
    Warren:		Regardless, she will stay
    		here. All we cand o is fight,
    		but Ms. O'Connell is different.
    		Take care of everything 
    		else.
    
    Robin:		.........
    
    Razma:		Besides, no guy wants his girl
    		dead. Come on you people, we
    		should all support his love
    		life.
    
    Twede:		Hmph!
    
    Robin:		..........
    
    nadia:		What? Why is it so quiet
    		around here?
    
    Mebius:		So, shouldn't we get going
    		soon?
    
    Warren:		...... Yeah. Let's. We'll make
    		this the last.
    
    Cage:		Definitely!
    
    Twede:		Dana, we'll talk about this
    		later, forgive me...

    Semyl:		HOLY.....! Phew....I thought I
    		was gonna die! Got out of it
    		somehow...
    
    Nadia:		That frame has too much
    		armoring... Bullets should be
    		DODGED. The design is
    		so....cowardly.
    
    Orcrist carries Justeen down
    
    Mebius:		It's time. Yukito, are yuo
    		warmed up?
    
    Yukito:		Yeah, as much as humanly
    		possible. Maybe it was that
    		embrace I got from that
    		lovely lady.
    
    Mebius:		Oh? I thought you had no
    		interest in women. I'm not
    		within the parameters of
    		eligibility for you.
    
    Yukito:		How rude of you. I am an
    		equal opportunity kind of guy.
    		As long as the cuteness
    		factor is there, what's the
    		difference between a guy or
    		an animal?
    
    Mebius:		....You're....kidding, right.......?
    
    Yukito:		I'm kidding.
    
    Yukito:		..... Well, kinda.
    
    Mebius:		(K-Kinda?!)

    		to be together with the ole
    		man, when I could have been
    		having passionate liaison
    		with an older woman....
    
    Warren:		.......What did you say?
    
    Razma:		Yeah yeah. Why are you so
    		grumpy, anyway? Jealous of 
    		Yukito??
    
    Warren:		.....Wh! What's that supposed
    		to mean?!
    		
    Mebius:		Ohh...so you really do.... I
    		don't feel that way toward
    		Yukito at all......
    
    Warren:		Huh? N-No, wait!
    
    Semyl:		You guys... Will you stop doing

    		times?

    Calibur arrives
    
    Robin:		Phew!! What do you think?
    		This is my special reserve
    		parachute. I made sure to
    		install it just in case
    		something like this should
    		happen!
    
    Semyl:		R-Robin.... How?
    
    Robin:		With this 'Miniature Lipstic
    		Laser Saw,' something I made
    		wayyyyy back when. The
    		board didn't like it, but...see!
    		It's actually very practical!
    
    Twede:		There you go again.... Why do
    		you always, ALWAYS.......
    
    Robin:		Hee, hee....you underestimate
    		me.
    
    Twede:		Fine, I will no longer stop 
    		you, so please go and seek
    		safety.

    Ned:		Shush!! I heard that you took
    		ole Zephyrs down, eh?
    
    Razma:		Hm. Are you saying that even
    		losers like you will avenge 
    		your friends?
    
    Ned:		Heh heh! That's pretty funny.
    		That was no loss. You came
    		all this way and you're going
    		already? No wonder! You're
    		not close to winning over me,
    		I'm immortal!

    		in.

    Ravana explodes
    
    Cage:		Is he...gone?
    
    Pharsti:	....Yes.
    
    Cage:		He was really persistent.
    
    Pharsti:	All humans are fixated on
    		'life,' and do whatever they
    		can do to foil 'death'... I can
    		appreciate this concept now.
    
    Cage:		Even if it means to take
    		someone else's life? You think
    		about these things?
    
    Pharsti:	....Yes.

    Amante appears with Unmanned Cyclops

    		holding the thingie about
    		Phil-Phil and the old man
    		against me?
    
    Cage:		.....What ARE you? What are
    		you trying to do? And, where
    		are Myona and Ares?
    
    Amanet:		Go-lly, you are so MEAN! I
    		like strong, kind, mature men.
    		I, like, totally get grossed
    		when people get all emotional
    		like that. I mean, I can't even
    		talk to people like that!
    		
    		...Did you people not see that
    		light? The 'Razor-thin beam
    		that slit the heavens'.... I was

    		already... Cage, you big 
    		pervert! I can't believe you
    		tried to make me say all
    		that!

    Pharsti:	Cage....
    
    Cage:		I know. You're telling me not
    		to lose my temper, right?
    
    Pharsti:	Battle mode has been set up.
    		Let us begin quickly. Please
    		give me a command at once!
    
    Cage:		Huh? Pharsti......? Are you
    		feeling anger too?
    
    Pharsti:	I do not know. However, I 
    		cannot rule out that
    		possibility.
    
    Amante:		Hmph! You wanna play that
    		way? Fine! Come, my little
    		crickets!
    
    More Unmanned OFs appear
    
    Cage:		What is this.....?
    
    Amante:		These are 'unmanned
    		Grafficanes.' Features had to
    		be compromised, but it's still
    		better than the one Phil was
    		riding. Ares is out back...
    		<<giggle>> If you can get
    		past me, you're welcome to
    		go and see him.
    
    Pharsti:	If we can get her out of the
    		way, the rest of the frames
    		are all unmanned. They hardly
    		pose a threat.
    
    Cage:		Okay, got it. We're going to
    		make yuo get out of the

    COMMENCE BATTLE
    
    After defeating Amante
    
    Amante:		He really did it..... You've
    		gotten a lot stronger.
    
    Cage:		That's because we're not
    		alone. Everyone is working as
    		one.
    
    Amante:		As one... I guess I am a little
    		jealous.
    
    Cage:		What?
    
    Amante:		I was always alone...I always
    		had a lot of boyfriends, but
    		they were only interested in
    		how I look.... I didn't choose
    		to look this good....... In all
    		honesty, I.....
    
    Cage:		You're.....lonely? And you were
    		looking for someone to accept 
    		you?
    
    Cage:		To tell yuo the truth, I kind
    		of liked you. So I didn't
    		really want to fight. I wish
    		we could have met under
    		different circumstances...
    
    Pharsti:	Cage, don't be swayed. She
    		is.....
    
    Amante:		Cage, will you come here....I'm
    		so scared.... If I have to die,
    		at least let me die in your
    		arms. It's my last wish, as a 
    		woman.....
    
    Cage:		You want to escape? Fine! I'm 
    		opening the hatch, so get
    		over here!
    
    Pharsti:	Cage! It's dangerous!!
    
    Cage:		She's the same as all of us.
    		Nobody would help her, that's
    		all.
    
    Amante:		.......
    
    Pharsti:	No, she is.....
    
    Amante:		Ohhhh, shut up!! You talk too
    		much. Cage, I'm going to let
    		you in on a little secret. A
    		truly desirable man will at
    		times pretend to be fooled
    		when a girl is lying to him.
    		Hope you can become a more
    		attractive guy someday...
    		Adieu!!
    
    Scarmiglione explodes
    
    Cage:		Whoa!
    
    Pharsti:	Are you all right?
    
    Cage:		Yeah, kind of.......O-Okay, now
    		we have to look for Ares and
    		Myona.
    
    Pharsti:	Yes, let us hurry.
    
    BIS arrives in the next area of the plant
    
    Cage:		Pharsti! Any new
    		developments?
    
    Pharsti:	The energy levels in the area
    		are surging to abnormally
    		high levels. In other words, it
    		may be more accurate to say
    		that we have been lured into
    		a massive energy field.
    
    Cage:		So, Ares is close by?
    
    Pharsti:	I wouold expect....right before
    		our very eyes.
    
    Iblis appears
    
    Cage:		.....Ares.
    
    		(Hm? I don't see Myona's OF
    		anywhere.... I thought that
    		was the origin of the
    		Marlblanke beam....?)
    
    		Ares! Where is the 
    		'Marlblanke Beam? we came 
    		to destroy it!
    		
    Ares:		Good to see you again....heh
    		heh.... There's no need to 
    		look so angry. You're looking
    		right at it, this is the frame.
    
    Cage:		What?
    
    Iblis is surrounded by sparks or some energy field,
    but the sparks disappear after a while
    
    
    Ares:		Whoops, I can't use this on
    		you right now! It takes some
    		time the gather enough
    		energy to make it work.
    
    Cage:		I understand now, that is the
    		Animus.... And you are the
    		origin of Marlblanke this
    		time.... I'm going to stop it!
    
    Ares:		That's cold...I thought we
    		were friends, and that you
    		would hand over the new
    		Animus and go home.... But I
    		guess you just don't care 
    		enough about our friendship
    		to do that.
    
    Cage:		Ares... Why are you doing 
    		this? What Zephyrs did can't
    		be avenged. But you're doing
    		the same thing as him! How
    		am I supposed to cooperate
    		with you!
    
    Ares:		Heh heh....you just don't get
    		it, do you. Vale's revenge is
    		just beginning! His wrath shall
    		expand, and envelop the
    		entirety of Mars with a great
    		ball of fire!
    
    Cage:		(Vale's revenge? His wrath?
    		Something is really off......)
    
    		Pharsti, is it really Ares
    		talking?
    
    Pharsti:	There is something very 
    		unnatural about his
    		communication, but there is
    		no doubt that the voice is
    		coming from Ares' physical
    		body.
    
    Cage:		Oh......thanks.
    
    		Ares, tell me. If I were to
    		give you Testament, what
    		would you do with it?
    
    Ares:		You saw the light of
    		Marlblanke. Not all OFs can do
    		that. It requires the 'Mindflow
    		System,' as well as a human
    		who can be aligned with the
    		system and operate it.
    
    Cage:		......
    
    Ares:		That light is the result of the
    		mind accepting the frame as
    		its body, and fully utilizing
    		the entire reserve of
    		Metatron that is found
    		throughout the OF; this,
    		however, is a great burden 
    		on both the frame and its
    		runner, Iblis and
    		Nerokerubina will reach their
    		limits at some point. And for
    		the time being, there are only
    		two of us who can run the
    		system to 100% of its
    		capacity... we need more
    		people who can do the same.
    		You understand?
    
    Cage:		What does that have to do
    		with Testament?
    		
    Ares:		The version of the 'Mindflow
    		System' installed on Iblis,
    		Pharsti, and Nerokerubina,
    		Ver. a*, proved too dificult
    		for people to handle. It holds
    		great potential, through the
    		built-in communicator module
    		that links it to the runner. 
    		The new Animus, on the other
    		hand, runs on 'Mindflow
    		System Ver. ,' which can be
    		easily operated by anybody,
    		even without any special
    		training.
    
    * - alpha
    
    Cage:		Do you mean to say that if
    		you were to analyze the 
    		system on Testament and
    		mass-produce it, that anybody
    		could create that 'light?'
    
    Ares:		Exactly. The blueprints for
    		that black box, unfortunately,
    		have been lost. What you are
    		riding is the only Ver.  in
    		existence. Come and join me,
    		Cage. Let's illuminate the
    		world with light.... If we can
    		do that, there is no reason
    		to ever be afraid again!
    
    Cage:		Okay....Ares, I'll give you
    		testament. I'll join your
    		team.
    
    Pharsti:	Cage?!
    
    Ares:		Ahh. Finally I've been able to
    		talk some sense into you. If
    		you will join me, we will be
    		invincible! Hurry, hand it 
    		over.
    
    Cage:		Before I do that, let's catch
    		up. Ares, do you remember
    		this?
    
    Cage shows the button on screen
    
    Ares:		.....Of course. It wasn't that
    		long ago that we were on
    		Bonaparte, although it feels
    		like ages.
    
    Cage:		.......
    
    Ares:		What happened? Now, hand it
    		over!
    
    Cage:		Who ARE you?
    
    Ares:		What?!
    
    Cage:		This is not just an ordinary
    		button. you might think that
    		you had me fooled, but the
    		real Ares wouldn't have
    		reacted that way! Ares would
    		have become a little shy, and
    		said, 'You still have that old
    		thing?' You're not Ares. 
    		You're controlling him with
    		the Selfbinder, just like you
    		did to Myona!
    
    Ares:		....What are you talking about?
    		Cage, just give...
    
    Cage:		You're using his body... and
    		his voice... You don't deserve
    		to speak to me!
    
    The button plays
    
    Ares:		....What's this? This song...?
    
    Cage:		Of course you don't know
    		what it is. This is a memorial
    		of the friendship between me
    		and Ares! And now, it's also
    		become proof of the fact that
    		you aren't Ares! Ares! Can
    		you hear this?! No matter
    		what, I am always going to be
    		your friend! Even if the whole
    		world turns against you, I'll
    		always be on your side! All of
    		me!!
    
    Ares:		What nonsense are you
    		spouting.....?! Uhhg! Wh, what
    		is.....Damn! What is happening!
    		The controls...can't be
    		maintained....?!
    		You.....gghhh....what did you
    		do......? What is
    		this....uggggggghhggg.
    
    Cage:		..... Remember how you were
    		just talking about friendship?
    		I'll show you what friendship
    		is..... I'm stopping you
    		because you're my friend,
    		Ares! This is my definition of
    		friendship. Come on, Ares!
    
    Ares:		You........!!
    
    More unmanned enemy troops (
    Nerokerubinas, Grafficanes, and Raptors) appear alongside Ares
    
    Cage:		I'm sorry, Pharsti. It must be
    		hard on you with the
    		non-stop fighting, but work
    		with me a little more!
    
    Pharsti:	Okay, Cage! I am ready!
    
    COMMENCE BATTLE
    		
    After weakening Iblis
    
    Ares:		Ib...lis....you've.......da.....maged
    		it.....so bad....ly....
    		You....because of ......you.......my
    		......perfe....ct....plan.....
    
    Pharsti:	The catapult has ceased
    		function. It is no longer
    		capable of firing.
    
    Cage:		OK. Now....
    
    Ares:		.......
    
    Pharsti:	Cage, we have succeeded in
    		damaging the enmy computer,
    		and stoped the interference
    		waves.
    
    Cage:		Huh? Does that mean that
    		Ares is back to normal now?
    
    Pharsti:	If he had been controlled
    		before, it is highly possible
    		that he is not now.
    
    Cage:		Pharsti, you are the best!
    
    Ares:		...uh....
    
    Cage:		Ares? Is it you? Say
    		something!
    
    Ares:		Ca....ge?
    
    Cage:		Ares! I am so glad you're
    		back to normal! Are....
    
    Ares:		Don't come.
    
    Cage:		What? What are you saying!
    		There's nothing to worry
    		about now!
    
    Ares:		Cage....you don't understand 
    		at all. I.... I don't want to
    		see you....
    
    Cage:		......A, Ares.....?
    
    Myona appears
    
    Myona:		.....Cage
    
    Cage:		Myona?!
    
    Myona drives towards Ares
    
    Ares:		......There you are........
    
    Myona:		Cage, please stop bothering
    		us. Please....
    
    Cage:		Myona! You've gone back to
    		normal too!? Thank god......
    
    Myona:		Cage, stop there.
    
    Cage:		Myona?
    
    Ares:		....Marlblanke was destroyed.
    		But it's not yet over.
    
    Cage:		What does that mean? You've 
    		become yourselves again, so
    		why do you still have to
    		fight? Why, Ares.....Myona!
    
    Myona:		.....
    
    Ares:		Stop us if you think you
    		can......
    
    Myona:		.... If and when you do that,
    		it'll really be goodbye.... So
    		please don't, Cage. Please....
    
    Myona and Ares leave
    
    Cage:		Myona! Ares!! Damn! Pharsti!
    
    Pharsti:	In practice, an attack at this
    		time is very risky. The frame
    		has been weakened by the
    		constant battle. Saoshyant
    		should retreat.
    
    Cage:		But!
    
    Pharsti:	Cage, please. You must
    		retreat.
    
    Cage:		.....Pharsti..... Fine.....

    Robin:		Good work, everyone. We
    		were able to hold them off
    		somehow.
    
    Razma:		......
    
    Yukito:		What's wrong? Why are you 
    		so blue?
    
    Razma:		I don't know, bro. I just feel 
    		like we're missing something/
    		We did help them, but isn't
    		there something else we
    		should have done?
    
    Yukito:		Are you talking about Ares?
    		But actually going after him
    		is dangerous. We overexerted
    		ourselves attacking
    		'Marlblanke.' The most
    		Saoshyant can do at the
    		moment is to fly from one
    		point to another. We won't be
    		able to catch up with them
    		anyway.
    
    Warren:		I'm sure the UNSF will be
    		coming soon . Look at all
    		that's been done.
    
    Razma:		Are we going to just let them
    		be taken?!
    
    Warren:		Well, what do you suggest we
    		do? Shelter them? That small
    		group of people has been
    		controlling the events on
    		Mars. We've just been
    		puppets. I'm not saying that's
    		a crime. But... when they
    		decide something - how can
    		we possibly go against it?
    
    		The last battle was our last
    		hope.
    
    Cage:		........
    
    Warren:		Cage, you did everything you
    		could, as a friend. But he
    		made his decision, and nothing
    		can change that. Humans have

    		destinies.

    Cage:		Sorry, Pharsti. I'm going to
    		go.
    
    Pharsti:	Cage......
    
    Cage:		I won't cause you any
    		trouble...I'll even go alone.
    
    Pharsti:	....You have not changed your
    		mind?
    
    Cage:		Yeah, I've already decided
    		that two very important
    		people to me are still
    		suffering. I can't leave them.
    
    Pharsti:	Suffer....ing?
    
    Cage:		Their eyes.... They had the
    		same look in their eyes. They
    		were kind.... And sad eyes.
    
    Pharsti:	.....I do not quite understand,
    		but if you say so, that must
    		be correct. What will you tell
    		everybody?
    
    Cage:		This is my personal issue. I
    		can't drag everyone into this.
    		And I also want to find out
    		what Ares meant when he
    		said that 'It's not over
    		yet'...
    
    Pharsti:	I understand.... The minimum
    		amout of recuperation has
    		been completed just now. Let
    		us leave immediately.
    
    Cage:		What? So....
    
    Pharsti:	Cage, I have already said this
    		to you. If you wish it, I will
    		do whatever I can to help. I
    		stopped you earlier because I 
    		needed to load up sufficiently.
    		I will always go wherever you
    		go!
    
    Cage:		Pharst....you are the best!!
    
    Pharsti:	Hee, hee... You are the only
    		person to say that to a 
    		computer.
    
    Cage:		You're more than just a
    		computer.
    
    Pharsti:	Then, what am I?
    
    Cage:		That's a secret.
    
    Pharsti:	......
    
    Cage:		Are you mad at me?...I'm
    		kidding.... You're a friend, I
    		think.....
    
    Pharsti:	...That is enough. Let us go.
    
    Cage:		Yeah.
    
    Warren:		....I knew it. Cage, where do
    		you think you're going?
    
    Cage:		Mr. Warren.... I'm sorry. But I
    		have to go!
    		
    Warren:		Wait! Come back! Do you want
    		to die?!
    
    Cage:		You said it yourself earlier.
    		Humans have a right to
    		choose their own destinies.
    		Right?
    
    		Before that, you advised me
    		once to 'think for myself,
    		and make my own decisions, and
    		take responsibility for them.'
    		There are things that I must
    		do. Thank you for everything
    		up until now.
    
    Warren:		Cage......
    
    Cage:		Please tell everyone that I
    		am so glad I got to meet

    Oxygen Plant
    
    From Oxygen Plant, Cage drives Pharsti to Mountain Division
    
    Mountain Division
    
    Cage:		We've come a long way.
    
    Pharsti:	Yes, we have gone quite far
    		north of the Hellespontos
    		mountain range. There are no
    		nests or modules in a 100
    		kilometer radius.
    
    Cage:		What a lonely place. Even
    		more than it looks from
    		space.
    
    Pharsti:	Vistas such as these are not
    		rare on Mars. Although it is
    		still within the county, it is
    		outside of the life sustaining
    		areas.
    
    Cage:		Outside, huh..... For me, the
    		inside of the ship was 'home'
    		and Mars and Earth were
    		'outside.' I would always look
    		at Mars from afar. Who
    		would've thought I would
    		actually be on this planet, and
    		involved in all this?
    
    Pharsti:	I feel that way sometimes
    		also. I do not have this
    		frame, so this Testament is
    		like my home. My entire
    		existence revolves around it.
    
    Cage: 		So I guess we're really alike,
    		then.
    
    Pharsti:	Yes. We are an analytical 
    		programmed device and
    		organic matter who have been
    		exposed to similar
    		surroundings and have
    		therefore obtained
    		similarities.
    
    Cage:		<<laughing>> What was 
    		THAT?
    		
    Pharsti:	Was it humorous?
    
    Cage:		More than most jokes I've
    		heard.
    
    Pharsti:	<<sigh......>>
    
    Cage:		...Thanks.
    
    Pharsti:	For what, may I ask?
    
    Cage:		For everything.
    
    Pharsti:	...Everything?
    
    Cage:		Yeah, everything.
    
    Pharsti:	.......
    
    Cage:		Is something wrong? Oh, you
    		think I'm making fun of you,
    		don't you. That's not it!
    		
    Pharsti:	Cage. That sounds to me like
    		a farewell. If it is......
    
    Cage:		No, it's not. You, Ares, Myona
    		- everyone is going to go
    		home alive. We have a home,
    		where our friends are. I'm
    		just saying, let's be positive
    		about things.
    
    Pharsti:	Cage, how about you? If you
    		don't go home safely too,
    		there is no point.
    
    Cage:		Heh heh.... That's right. You
    		can't live without me.
    
    Pharsti:	Cage!
    
    Cage:		Ha, ha, ha....
    
    		It's the last one; let's do our
    		best.
    
    Pharsti:	Yes.
    
    Fade Screen
    
    Cage:		How is it going? Can you find
    		them?
    
    Pharsti:	Yes. Testament and Iblis run 
    		on different system versions
    		but the basic internal
    		structure of both frames i 
    		almost identitcal. Even at this
    		point, the vibrations of the
    		other frame, while distant, 
    		can be detected. But even
    		without this detection, it
    		would not have been difficult
    		to track them down.
    
    Cage:		What?
    
    Pharsti:	Just as you said, he...Mr.
    		Ares wants to be stopped. By
    		you.
    
    Cage:		He does?
    
    Pharsti:	A trail has been left. A signal

    ##### Scene 26: Pharsti #####
    
    Jimmer:		Pleased to meet you, Cage. I

    		Death will come too soon...
    		But until then...
    
    Cage:		What! Who are...?
    
    Jimmer:		Your destruction of Zephrys
    		was perfect. We are all very
    		relieved by the turn of
    		events. The only one
    		unexpected accident was that
    		Ms. Pharsti returned the new
    		model Animus, but now that it 
    		is in front of my eyes, I
    		shall not complain.
    
    Cage:		I get it! You're with the 
    		BAHRAM!? The group that
    		brainwashed Myona and is
    		controlling Ares!
    
    Jimmer:		What a terrible thing to say
    		about somebody. Please, call
    		us sponsors. We provide the
    		OFs and the LEVs... A
    		thankless job, really.
    
    Cage:		Listen to yourself! Thankless
    		job?! Have you given any
    		thought as to how many
    		people have been victimized
    		because of you?!
    
    Jimmer:		That does not concern me.
    		Business is business. Mixing
    		business with emotion is
    		complete nonsense. Perhaps
    		you need to elarn a bit about
    		business yourself.
    
    Cage:		Y-You........
    
    Myona appears alongside Jimmer
    
    Myona:		You just won't be swayed, will
    		you?
    
    Cage:		Myona!
    
    Myona:		Stop! My name is Pharsti!
    		Nobody else!
    
    Cage:		That's not true. To me, you
    		are Myona.
    
    Myona:		Cage.... Please..... Please don't
    		hurt me anymore.....
    
    Jimmer:		That's right. It's not proper
    		to be the cause behind the
    		lady's grief. One big facet of
    		business is how you treat
    		ladies. You must be more
    		chivalrous. Now, Miss Pharst.
    		Please do it perfectly this
    		time.
    
    Myona:		.....Yes sir.
    
    Jimmer is about to leave
    
    Cage:		Wait!! What are you trying to
    		accomplish
    		
    Jimmer:		Freedom on Mars, of course.
    		
    Cage:		Freedom? You think it's
    		acceptable to hurt people for
    		that purpose?
    
    Jimmer:		Heh heh... Yes, as a matter of
    		fact, I do. Freedom must be
    		won. Why don't you try to win
    		you own also? Well, I must
    		get going....
    
    Jimmer leaves
    
    Cage:		Darn!!
    
    Myona:		Cage... I'm sorry, but you
    		really have to stop getting in
    		my brother's way.
    
    Cage:		Myona...what's gotten into
    		you? What is Ares trying to 
    		do?
    
    Myona:		Farther that way is Zephyrs'
    		lab... The land that bore this
    		tragedy, as well as the
    		genetic makeup of the
    		Animus.....
    
    Cage:		What......?
    
    Pharsti:	There is no such record.
    
    Myona:		That's right. It no longer
    		exists in this world. That's
    		where he is...along with
    		Marlblanke Dite.
    
    Cage:		Marlblanke Dite?
    
    Myona:		The Metatron mining grounds...
    		And the Marlblanke beam,
    		using that enormous cave as
    		a shell...
    
    Pharsti:	I cannot imagine that
    		something that large can be
    		managed, regardless of the
    		alterations that may be 
    		made....
    
    Myona:		....True. There is no way to
    		do it safely, at least.
    
    Cage:		What?!
    
    Myona:		He won't last until the very
    		end. But he will be able to
    		fire it. There is no worry of
    		defending ourselves.... It will
    		go off and all the energy will
    		spread throughout the planet,
    		attacking all 12 spheres and
    		its surroundings. Destroying
    		all the domes in its wake......
    
    Cage:		Why.....Myona! That is wrong!
    		Why would you want to do
    		that?!
    
    Myona:		You were the ones who drove
    		him to do this...although I do
    		think that it would have
    		happened to him eventually
    		regardless.
    
    Cage:		What are you.....trying to
    		say?
    
    Myona:		We will never be able to
    		forgive Mars or Earth. I	
    		remembered....everything... THe
    		Martians are to blame also,
    		for never acting for 
    		themselves. There is a need
    		for a show of force.
    
    Cage:		You...you would never be able
    		to do something so evil!
    		Myona! You're...
    
    Myona:		I'll say it one more time. I
    		am not Myona... In fact, she
    		is only a hated facet of me.
    		If you keep reminding me of
    		her this way, I will destroy
    		you so that she will cease to
    		exist!
    
    Pharsti:	Cage, I have detected very
    		weak interference. Her mind
    		control is not complete. You
    		may still have success in
    		talking some sense into her. I
    		fully believe that your
    		feelings will get through to 
    		her.
    
    Cage:		Thanks....Okay. I'll try!
    
    Pharsti:	Please be careful. I have
    		sensed numerous frames
    		coming in this direction!
    
    Cage:		What?!
    
    Numerous enemies appear
    
    Cage:		Th-there are so many.....
    
    Pharsti:	They are approaching!
    
    Cage:		This is the end......
    
    A Mummy is about to go to Cage, but Caliburnus appears in Cage's rescue
    
    Semyl:		Hah! You are such a wuss!
    		Suck it up and be a man!
    		
    Cage:		H-How did you know where I
    		was?
    
    Semyl:		WELL! That would be
    		because...
    
    Mummy targets Semyl
    
    Semyl:		H-Hey! What was THAT for
    		huh, punk?
    
    Before it can even attack, someone fires the Mummy. Dreizehn appears
    
    Razma:		Moron! If you're going to be
    		meandering around, at least
    		keep your ears open for
    		enemies! You'd think that at
    		least your BRAIN would 
    		mature.
    
    Cage:		Razma......
    
    Razma:		Heh heh, why are you always
    		running away from us? That's 
    		so cold. We're friends, aren't
    		we?
    
    Cage:		Sorry, but....
    
    Semyl:		Whuut!? You're part of my
    		crew, aren't you, Ace? You
    		gotta watch out for that cat,
    		ain't no way you'll get
    		anywhere hangin' with him! If
    		he even touches you, scrub
    		yourself down with soap! I'll
    		betcha he's got loser germs
    		or somethin'...
    
    Razma:		Well, well. Quite the expert,
    		aren't we? I guess I'm a 
    		little too big and important to
    		be spending too much time
    		with microscopic organisms.
    
    Semyl:		Oh yeah?! Perfect, why don't
    		you show me what you're
    		made of, then!
    
    Razma:		Fine! Exactly what I've been
    		wanting to do! Just with this
    		one finger, I could....
    
    Mummies go beside Razma and Semyl and targets them
    
    Razma: 		Huh? Aw, man!
    
    Semyl:		Dang!
    
    But someone (again) shoots the Mummies to their rescue
    
    Durandal II and Justeen appears
    
    Yukito:		That's enough, folks. Marital
    		problems aren't pretty.
    
    Cage:		Mr. Yukito! And Mr. Warren!
    
    Warren:		Oh my. WHat are we to do
    		when our team is about to
    		fall apart before we even go
    		into battle? That calls for 
    		200 solid hours of training
    		for you two as soon as we
    		get back. That should deter
    		you from bickering, no?
    
    Semy/Raz:	That's messed up!
    
    Orcrist, Calibur, and Vjaya also appear
    
    Mebius:		Listen to you two; you're
    		perfect for each other! Hee,
    		hee....
    
    Nadia:		I, too threw away my life
    		once. But because you people
    		saved me, I stand here now.
    		If you want to persuade her,
    		you must do so quickly. While
    		you still have a chance.
    
    Cage:		Ms. Nadia...
    
    Robin:		Oh, I'm late. I was going for
    		the dramatic entrance.
    
    Cage:		Everyone!
    
    Robin:		Not now, Cage. We are not in
    		the best situation right now.
    		Let's get out of here.
    
    Razma:		Heh, heh! YOu just want to
    		take all these guys out and
    		save Myona, right?
    
    Yukito:		If they're on the ground,
    		there's no place for them to
    		hide. Time to give them a
    		little attitude adjustment.
    
    Mebius:		Cage, we'll take care of this 
    		business here. Please go and
    		save Myona.
    
    Cage:		Everyone, I...
    
    Semyl:		Yadda yadda... Will ya just go
    		already? You already know
    		what you gotta do, dontcha?
    	
    Warren:		I did tell you to take
    		responsibility for your own
    		actions. You have to
    		understand that all of us are
    		here of our own will, too.
    		That means we'll take care of
    		our part. Your job is to take
    		care of yours.
    
    Cage:		Thank you....all of you......
    
    Robin:		Go on.
    
    Cage:		....I'm on my way!
    
    COMMENCE BATTLE
    
    When Cage approaches Myona
    
    Pharsti:	Now, Cage!
    
    Cage:		O-Okay!
    
    		Myona! Can you hear me! You
    		can't do this! Come here!
    		
    Myona:		Uuuuhh...stop...my name isn't
    		Myona! I'm..... I'm.....!!
    		
    Myona disappears
    
    Cage:		Myona?!
    
    Three Myonas reappear
    
    Cage:		Th-three Myonas?! What is
    		going on here?
    
    Pharsti:	I would expect that the 
    		human who calls himself
    		Jimmer prepared these fakes
    		to give him more time...
    		Scanning is impossible, as
    		there is jamming due to the
    		frame materials. In this case,
    		I am unable to discern the 
    		A.I.s from Miss Myona..... I am
    		sorry, Cage.
    
    Cage:		Nothing to be sorry about. I'll
    		just get closer and talk to
    		them!
    
    
    Approach the fake Myona
    
    Cage:		Myona! It's me!
    
    Computer:	<Bzzzz> Target, Captyure,
    		Attack.
    
    Cage:		This is not it either....!
    
    Pharsti:	Stay calm!
    
    Approach the real Myona
    
    Cage:		Myona?.... It's you, isn't it?
    
    Myona:		....Cage....
    
    Pharsti:	There is no mistake. It is
    		her!
    	
    Myona:		I told you, I will destroy
    		you!
    
    Cage:		......Myona, you are not being 
    		controlled right now, are
    		you? Or have you become
    		'Pharsti' completely? Does
    		'Myona' no longer exist?
    
    Myona:		Cage... Right now I am neither
    		Myona nor Pharsti.... I
    		remember everything about
    		the experiments and the 
    		incidents at the lab.
    
    		About Father and Mother, who
    		were... subjected to endless
    		experimentation day after
    		day... My friends who went
    		through those doors and
    		never came back out... I can't
    		allow myself to be the only 
    		one who escapes! I can't
    		allow myself to have feelings
    		for you!!
    		
    Cage:		.....
    
    Myona:		Always... It was your 
    		voice I heard... Why? Why do
    		you call my name? As long as
    		I was being controlled, I
    		didn't suffer. I didn't have a
    		single thought... Why do you
    		make me suffer? Why?!
    		
    Cage:		...That's your answer?
    
    Myona:		Phil and Mr. Deckson, and all
    		those Martian people....
    		They're all dead....and it's all
    		my fault. It's too late now.....
    
    Myona targets Testament
    
    Pharsti:	Lock on detected!
    
    Cage:		......
    
    Myona:		Cage.....
    
    Cage:		Hey, Myona.... We've been 
    		through a lot, huh.
    
    Myona:		........
    
    Cage:		The reason why I am here
    		right now is because you
    		saved me that day on the
    		ship. You gave me this life.
    
    Myona:		......
    
    Cage:		But if you regret what you
    		did that day..... And all that
    		you did every day since,
    		then......
    
    Myona:		.....Stop......
    
    Cage:		I'm here, Myona. You led me
    		here from Bonaparte. Now you
    		can take back my life with
    		your own hands. That will end 
    		everything.
    
    Myona:		....D-Don't flatter yourself.
    		You think that's being heroic?
    		A martyr? How much do you
    		think your life is worth,
    		anyway?
    
    Cage:		Yeah, and what about yours?
    
    Myona:		....What?
    
    Cage:		Mr. Deckson's last words.
    		What is life? What is one
    		small human life?
    		
    		Is your life to be lived being
    		controlled by someone else?
    		Is that what you want? I find
    		that hard to believe.... Myona.
    		I used to think that way. I
    		used to think that I couldn't
    		make a difference no matter
    		how hard I tried.... But Ares
    		was the first one to show me
    		how wrong I was. And you
    		were the one who saved my
    		life and kept me on track.
    
    Myona:		.......
    
    Cage:		That's why I'll do anything if
    		it'll save you. Even if it
    		means losing my own life!
    
    Myona:		....Why......How can you say
    		that......
    
    Cage:		I came to fulfill a promise.
    
    Myona:		A promise?
    
    Cage:		One was with Phil. He asked
    		me to look after you. The
    		other is........this.
    
    Myona:		That's......
    
    Cage switches on the button
    
    Myona's Voice:	......In the space that's left on
    		this, I've decided to record a 
    		message......
    		
    Cage:		Yeah. The message you left 
    		for me.
    
    Myona:		Th....that thing.....I forgot all
    		about it..... It's just a 
    		remnant of the past....for
    		me.......
    
    Cage:		.....I was really happy. It
    		made me think that I wasn't
    		alone.
    
    Myona:		........
    
    Myona's Voice:	...And there's something else
    		I've been meaning to say. I
    		hope you'll give me an answer
    		once you hear this...
    
    Myona:		......
    
    Myona's Voice:	Um, if you don't have any
    		concrete plans, would you like
    		to travel around space with
    		me? Maybe you don't really
    		want to do it together with
    		me, but I think that of you go
    		to different places, and meet
    		lots of different people,
    		maybe you'll be able to figure
    		out what you want to do. It
    		sounds like a good idea to
    		me, you are going to love it.
    		A nice, relaxing vacation. so,
    		keep your chin up, Cage! Be a
    		happy camper!... That was a
    		joke. Ha ha ha.... So
    		er....anyway, I'm looking
    		forward to your response. I'll
    		wait as long as you need to
    		decide, until you feel good
    		enough to think about it.....
    		Something may happen, and
    		maybe I won't be me anymore,
    		but if that does happen........
    
    Myona:		.......
    
    Myona's Voice:	If that does happen, please
    		come and get me..... Promise
    		me.......
    
    Myona:		...I no longer deserve to be
    		saved by you......
    		
    Cage:		Myona, if what you are doing
    		right now is truly what you
    		want, you should go ahead
    		and make me fall at your
    		hands. But, if that's not what 
    		you want... If you are
    		suffering... Myona, let's go
    		together to find our lives.
    		This time I'll support
    		you....and I'll continue to
    		support you until you tell me
    		to stop!
    
    Myona:		Ca.....ge......
    
    Cage:		I came to save you. You're
    		my savior..... You're so
    		important......
    		
    Myona:		Uuuuhh......
    
    Cage:		You're everything to me!
    
    Myona:		Uuuuuhhhh......Cage.......
    
    Myona's clones disappear (and on the map, her Nerokerubina is colored 
    blue, meaning an ally already)
    
    Pharsti:	The enemy frame has halted
    		operations...
    
    Myona(crying):	Cage......thank you....... You're
    		everything to me too......
    
    Cage:		Sorry it took me a while to
    		get back to you.
    
    Myona:		....It's okay. I... Myona.....? 
    		Yes, I am Myona. I'm Myona,
    		right?
    
    Cage:		Yup. You're Myona.
    
    Myona:		Heh....thank you. Thank you so
    		much. Now, the last problem 
    		is......
    
    Cage:		Myona.....?
    
    Myona:		My hands are forever stained
    		with blood..... I don't deserve
    		to have somebody care about
    		me......
    
    Cage goes out of Testament
    
    Cage (smiling):	......
    
    Pharsti:	C-Cage..... What are
    		you.....Cage?!
    
    Myona:		?!
    
    Cage:		......
    
    Myona:		S-Stop it! Are you trying to
    		kill yourself?!
    
    Cage:		.....
    
    Myona:		No!!
    
    Myona jumps to Cage
    
    Cage:		......
    
    Myona embraces Cage
    
    Cage:		Owwww.....
    
    Myona:		Tsk! Why would you do
    		something like that?!
    
    Cage:		Well......
    
    Myona:		No, not well! We're not in a
    		dome, all you have to do is
    		try to breathe, and you die!
    
    Cage:		But we're safe. Both of us.
    
    Myona:		<<sigh>> You're
    		impossible.....
    
    Cage:		That's right. You should really
    		keep an eye on me, who
    		knows what I'll do next.
    
    Myona:		......
    
    Cage:		Please don't say that nobody
    		needs you..... Myona, I need
    		you. I can't be without you.
    		It can't be anybody else.
    
    Myona:		....You need....me?
    
    Cage:		Yeah. It's really good to see
    		you again.
    
    Myona:		....Cage....Sorry......I'm so
    		sorry......
    
    Cage:		Welcome back.
    
    Myona:		Thanks....it's good to be 
    		home.

    Yukito:		Myona, in this world, beings
    		don't have worth. For a lot
    		of people, being deserving of
    		something is often only about
    		whether that person is handy

    Myona:		Living.....hard?
    
    Yukito:		Both the Boss and Phil found
    		something more important to
    		them than themselves. You're
    		one of those things. There's
    		no need to feel any pressure
    		to impress. It means much
    		more for you to continue to
    		live, and be true to yourself. 
    		That was what they fought to
    		protect. That is what they 
    		wanted, more than anything
    		else.
    
    Myona:		..... To live life.......
    
    Warren:		Those who fight in battles for
    		themselves do live longer
    		than others who fight for
    		something else. But once they
    		die, there will be nothing left
    		of them. They never gave
    		themselves to anyone is why.
    
    Mebius:		They saved you. And they
    		saved many more people too.
    		I know that they are happy,
    		and don't regret anything.
    
    Semyl:		Yeah, so stop beatin' yourself
    		up over it. Alls you gotta do
    		is remember all this and keep
    		livin'.
    
    Myona (tears):	......Thank you...... Thank you
    		so much, all of you......
    
    Razma:		OK! Now it's Ares' turn! Come
    		on, let's get to it!
    
    Robin:		Yes, we should hurry if the
    		information is in fact
    		accurate....
    
    Cage:		What information?
    
    Twede:		..... The existence of Zephyrs'
    		secret laboratory, which is
    		located father up that way,
    		and intelligence concerning
    		the large-scale beam have
    		become known. In less than
    		an hour, I do not doubt that
    		the UNSF will have bombed the
    		area.
    
    Yukito:		They must be planning on 
    		shooting a missile into that
    		thing. The entire thing will be
    		gone.
    
    Warren:		They're planning to make an
    		artificial crater right in that
    		spot.
    
    Cage:		Oh no!
    
    Myona:		My brother......

    Saoshyant heads to Zephyrs' Lab
    
     --------------------------
    |Zephyr's Lab              \____________________
    
    Robin:		....There it is.
    
    Cage:		That is.....Zephyrs' secret
    		lab.....
    
    Semyl:		What a dismal spot.
    
    Myona:		This is where we lived, after
    		we somehow survived the
    		blast.
    
    Yukito:		All the way out here? How did
    		you survive?
    
    Myona:		There was just enough food
    		for the two of us to make it
    		through.
    
    Warren:		You remember all about that
    		time of your life?
    
    Myona:		Yes. But at the time I was
    		barely conscious, which was a
    		side effect from the
    		experiments, so my memories
    		are hazy... But I remember
    		that my brother would cut
    		down his own portions of
    		food to make more for me... I
    		remember his face - it
    		became withered and tight -
    		but never ceased smiling at 
    		me......
    
    Mebius:		Can you stop him? It may
    		mean taking his life.
    
    Myona:		Until now, I believed that if I
    		couldn't stop him, it was my
    		obligation to support him.
    		But...thanks to Cage, I've
    		changed my mind. My
    		obligation is to right the
    		wrong. If it means I may
    		have to do that.......I am
    		prepared.
    
    Cage:		Myona.... It'll be all right. I
    		promise. Your brother... Ares
    		will understand. He's just a
    		little stubborn, is all.
    
    Myona:		.....I guess so.
    
    Razma:		Spoken by the undisputed king
    		of stubbornness.
    
    Cage:		Hey!
    
    Myona:		<<giggle>>... Thank you, Cage.
    		Thank you, everyone.
    
    Semyl:		Well, we made it this far. No
    		more backin' out, yuo dig?
    
    Myona:		Okay!
    
    Mebius:		By the way, who is that
    		'Jimmer' character who was
    		there until right before we
    		landed? I got the sense that
    		he is the mastermind behind
    		all this, but is he one of the
    		BAHRAM?
    
    Cage:		He didn't deny that he was
    		from the BAHRAM, and he told
    		me that he supplied the
    		people of Mars with weapons.
    
    Robin:		An involved sponsor. But I've
    		never heard of 'Jimmer.'
    
    Twede:		It must be an alias. There
    		were no records under his
    		name, nor was that name
    		listed as a code name in the
    		confidential agent roster.
    
    Myona:		I'm not exactly sure either....
    		But whenever he appeared,
    		my brother's demeanor would
    		change completely. He wouldn't
    		even talk to me. That was
    		when he stopped laughing
    		too...
    
    Warren:		Perhaps he's a BAHRAM
    		liaison? But I can't imagine
    		that he fully represents their
    		sentiments. They are proud of
    		the fact that their territory
    		was the first to be touched
    		by humans. Deckson said that
    		if they were to fight for the
    		independence of Mars, he
    		would definitely wish to be on
    		the frontline to fight -- even
    		if there was some other
    		objective. But that not being
    		the case, those who think
    		differently are the ones doing
    		the fighting.
    
    Yukito:		Well, when you have three
    		people, you'll always have 
    		factions. I guess not
    		everyone has clear-cut
    		motives...
    
    Twede:		It is relatively simple to
    		narrow down all free agents
    		who have that much power...
    
    Robin:		I'll leave that to you. As for
    		now, we need to stop Ares.
    
    Razma:		Yeah, exactly. He's inside that
    		big hole, right?
    
    Myona:		Yes. That is Marlblanke Dite,
    		'Lord of Demons and
    		Venomous Claw'....
    
    Razma:		All right! Let's go beat some
    		sense into that guy! Ready,
    		Cage?
    
    Cage:		Mm-hm. Is everyone ready?
    
    ##### Scene 25:  Reunion #####
    
    Mebius:		There's a strong torrent of
    		energy...
    
    Cage:		Myona, are you all right?
    
    Myona:		I'm fine, Cage. Thanks. Don't
    		do anything I wouldn't do.
    
    Cage:		You too.
    
    Myona:		I know.
    
    Razma:		Aw, look at those lovebirds...
    
    Semyl:		What, you jealous?! We can do
    		that too, you know....
    
    Razma:		Hunh? Are you feeling okay?
    
    Semyl:		...<<sigh>> Never mind. I was
    		just tryin' to....
    
    Razma:		....Don't worry. We'll take our 
    		time.
    
    Semyl:		Wha.........?
    
    Razma:		Um, er....so, yeah.
    
    Semyl:		...Right on!
    
    Jimmer appears
    
    Jimmer:		How distressing.... To think I
    		get no support for trying to
    		ensure a brighter future for
    		Mars. Nonetheless, my plan is
    		foolproof. You couldn't stop
    		me if you wanted to.
    
    Warren:		I just hope you're not
    		planning on turning in fear
    		with your tail between your
    		legs, like last time.
    
    Jimmer:		Heh heh heh....
    
    Robin:		Do you even realize what 
    		would happen if the dome
    		were to be destroyed? And
    		you talk about a brighter
    		future for Mars? Please!
    
    Jimmer:		Well, welll.....if it isn't Miss
    		Dana the NUT.
    
    Robin:		...I am Robin of BIS. Who are
    		you?
    
    Jimmer:		'Lance Jimmer' is the name
    		I'm known by now. Surely you
    		of all people, will appreciate
    		the significance in a person's
    		real name?
    
    Robin:		....Agreed. But whatever you
    		are doing is not for the 
    		benefit of Mars.
    
    Jimmer:		Perhaps not, but it is to the
    		benefit of the true 'Mars.' It
    		is not enough to merely rid it
    		of Earth's influence. What is
    		truly the heart of our
    		dilemma are the people who
    		adopt the Earth's ways. Those
    		people have no pride in Mars,
    		and should be singled out and
    		eliminated. This is a test
    		which will result in a
    		population of Martians who
    		truly love Mars.
    
    Robin:		That's very simplistic.
    
    Jimmer:		.....But are we not exactly the
    		same? You call yourself BIS
    		and assume this superior
    		attitude, but in actuality, you
    		are only a terrorist group
    		relying on brute force to
    		materialize your ideals, are
    		you not? Your actions thus
    		far have only given the
    		fossils in the government
    		false hopes, and have caused
    		all of this to happen.
    		Long-standing issues such as
    		ours will not change unless
    		they are uprooted entirely.
    		WHat your group has been
    		doing has been for
    		self-glorification only - 
    		waste of time,and
    		exceedingly poor judgement.
    
    Robin:		....You're right that our ways
    		take time. But our mission is
    		to plant the seeds which will
    		sprout at some time unknown
    		to us.... Seeds that will serve
    		as the base of betterment
    		whether or not people or
    		situations change. Our name
    		may not survive for
    		posterity, but the ideas we
    		have sown will. Don't you
    		dare say that we are the
    		same as you, when you are
    		attempting to justify your
    		selfishness!
    
    		Hah! Foolproof, is it? It's
    		juvenile! You.... You cowardly,
    		hypocritical, sniveling snake!
    
    Jimmer:		....Well, I think that is just
    		about enough of that. You are
    		giving me no choice but to
    		end things in this manner.....
    
    Unmanned OFs appear
    
    Warren:		When the going gets rough,
    		you try to make up for it
    		with sheer numbers. Your
    		plan is a disorganized mess.
    		How can you even think that
    		it is 'foolproof?'
    
    Jimmer:		.... All your endless chatter....
    		It is undoubtedly not the
    		most elegant thing to solve
    		disputes by means of 
    		violence, but in this case
    		there is no alternative.
    
    Mebius:		Make sure you watch for
    		your ammunition supply,
    		everyone.
    
    Razma:		Yeah, but this is going to be
    		the last one. Let's pump all
    		we've got into them!
    
    Semyl:		Aight y'alls. I'll act as a 
    		shield, so everyone save your
    		energy, got it?
    
    Yukito:		I don't need any engravings
    		on my tombstone... I'll etch
    		my name in pain on each and
    		every one of your bodies.....
    
    		Hey, that came out pretty 
    		well.
    
    Nadia:		It is undeniable that war is
    		won with numbers, but what
    		affects the final result of the
    		battle is morale and
    		momentum. Do you think you
    		have that?.... Unfortunately
    		for you, I have a feeling you
    		will lose.
    
    Cage:		Myona....Let's go.
    
    Myona:		Okay.
    
    Pharsti:	(......)
    
    COMMENCE BATTLE
    
    After defeating Jimmer
    
    Jimmer:		....Not bad....... But need less to
    		say, I will not allow any more
    		to happen.....
    
    Iblis appears
    
    Cage:		Ares!
    
    Jimmer:		Vale, I leave the rest to you.
    		Please make sure you do a
    		thorough job.
    
    Ares:		...I know.
    
    Cage:		W, wait!
    
    Jimmer:		Ladies and gentlemen, I do
    		hate to leave you, but I must
    		get going. Farewell...
    
    Jimmer retreats
    
    Cage:		Damn.....
    
    Ares:		......
    
    Myona:		Ares....
    
    Ares:		Even you are abandoning
    		me......? That is your decision?
    
    Myona:		....That's right. Please, stop
    		this!
    
    Ares:		.....Thanks to Jimmer, the 
    		energy has been restored 
    		completely. ALl that's left to
    		do now is to is to get rid of
    		obstacles like you and
    		hyperalign again. That will
    		erase all the fools from
    		existence... Heh heh heh....
    		Isn't it grand?
    
    Myona:		Stop! It won't bring Father or
    		Mother back!?
    
    Ares:		Pharsti. I'm not like you. I
    		would never forget Father 
    		and Mother.....
    
    Myona:		I haven't forgotten about
    		them! I would never forget
    		Mother and Father!!
    
    Ares:		Then prove it.
    
    Myona:		.....Huh?
    
    Ares:		Prove to me once and for all
    		that you are right, by winning
    		this battle!
    
    Myona:		No..... You can't be serious.
    
    Ares:		.......
    
    Myona:		Ares....
    
    Ares:		Now, let's get started. There
    		isn't that much time left.
    
    When Ares is about to attack Cage
    
    Cage:		This location has been set as
    		a target for a military missile
    		attack! We need to get away!
    
    Ares:		.....I know.
    
    Cage:		You....what?
    
    ARes:		It's no problem. Marlblanke
    		Dite has the power to
    		destroy the entire city,
    		including the missile.
    
    Cage:		You're still talking nonsense....
    		You're going to let Myona be
    		saved and kill yourself?!
    
    ARes:		.....I don't understand what
    		you are getting at.
    
    Cage:		You're the one who got me
    		this far!
    
    Ares:		That's so we can have our
    		battle now.
    
    Cage:		That's a lie!
    
    Ares:		My Father and Mother were
    		so kind...and one who 
    		took them from me is dead.
    		But my revenge is not
    		finished. All the humans that
    		didn't publicize the facts of
    		the accident are equally
    		abominable.... THose Martians
    		abandoned us too!
    
    Cage:		B-But....
    
    Ares:		That's not all. The children
    		who were used for
    		experimentation...they were
    		victimized too. They were
    		abandoned by their own
    		parents, who gave up their
    		own flesh and blood to feed
    		themselves.
    
    Cage:		......
    
    Ares:		They would blame it on
    		poverty, I'm sure. People on
    		this planet are always blaming
    		someone else - always
    		protecting only t hemselves
    		and directing their
    		unhappiness at the rest of
    		the world! What are those
    		people worth? The children
    		here wereunloved, and wiped 
    		out...for the sake of their
    		restless souls, I have an
    		obligation to avenge their
    		suffering. I can't afford to
    		quit now. I alone have the
    		responsibility of proving their
    		existence once on this 
    		planet...and letting their anger
    		be known!
    
    Cage:		Ares....
    
    
    
    After defeating Ares
    
    Ares:		Uggggg...
    
    Pharsti:	The enemy frame has been 
    		stopped.
    
    Ares:		Heh...Heh, heh....Cage, you
    		really have grown stronger.
    
    Cage:		Ares.....?
    
    Ares:		I am just a weak person
    		after all. I needed somebody
    		to correct me and tell me
    		what to do....
    
    Cage:		I knew it was a lie..... I knew
    		that you are really the Ares
    		I know!
    
    Ares:		Pretty good acting for a 
    		last-ditch, last-minute effort,
    		eh? But it was not a lie...
    		Inside me, there exists a 
    		feeling of utter disgust
    		toward the people of this
    		planet. Jimmer saw that and
    		manipulated me to his
    		advantage. It's pathetic....
    
    		That's why I had to do this...
    		But if you can end it all, I
    		couldn't wish for anything
    		more.
    
    Cage:		All right, that's enough. Don't
    		say any more!
    
    Ares:		....Cage, do you still have
    		your button?
    
    Cage:		Y-Yeah, I have it. But more
    		importantly...
    
    Ares:		Can you play that song for
    		me? ..... Please.....
    		
    Cage:		.......
    
    The button plays the song
    
    Ares:		...This song used to be sung
    		here..... 'Promise of
    		Reunion'.....
    		It would be sung in memory
    		of all of our friends who we
    		knew would never return....It
    		was sung hundreds of times,
    		but nobody ever
    		returned....But that wasn't the
    		point. This wasn't about hate
    		or revenge. It was about the
    		happiness they never had,
    		and the futures they never
    		lived... And getting another
    		chance at them.... Heh heh....
    		Thank you.....
    
    Cage:		Ares.....?
    
    Ares:		....I'm more relaxed now.... It
    		makes a big difference not
    		being hyperaligned...
    
    Pharsti:	Marlblanke Dite is letting out
    		large amounts of energy. If 
    		this continues, the heat may
    		cause an explosion.
    
    Cage:		Ares, were you planning
    		this...?
    
    Ares:		In just one move, the world
    		is rid of this hideous weapon
    		and the hideous man..... It is
    		the best way.
    
    Pharsti:	Marlblanke Dite has begun to
    		deteriorate. It will implode.
    
    
    The lab's different parts implodes
    
    Ares:		Lastly....
    
    Pharsti:	The missiles are coming!
    
    Semyl:		Shoot! Here already? What're
    		we gonna do...!?
    
    Ares:		.....There is nothing to worry
    		about. Just retreat into
    		Saoshyant.
    
    Yukito:		Saoshyant's shield is totally
    		inadequate! Besides, we don't
    		have the time to retreat
    		now.....
    
    Myona:		Ares, you're not saying.....
    
    Cage:		Ares..... What are you doing?
    
    ARes:		....I will shield you from the
    		missiles with Iblis. It won't
    		stop all of them, but the rest
    		should be stopped by
    		Saoshyant's shield.
    
    Cage:		No, wait!
    
    Ares maneuvers Iblis
    
    Pharsti:	Cage, it is not possible with
    		his frame alone. We must
    		follow him!
    
    Cage:		Uh.... Yeah! Ok, let's go after
    		him!
    
    Myona:		I'm coming too!
    
    Cage and Myona follows Ares
    
    Semyl:		We gotta do something too!
    
    Razma:		All right!
    
    Yukito:		Stop, you two.
    
    Razma:		Why! We can't just sit back
    		and watch!
    		
    Warren:		...We'd only get in the way.
    
    Semyl:		Well.... Maybe that's true....
    
    Robin:		In the end, we have to end
    		up depending completely on
    		the youths....
    
    Mebius:		If they can't do it, nobody
    		can. We owe them some faith.
    
    Razma:		......
    
    		(Cage, everyone.... We're 
    		counting on you!)
    
    Jimmer:		Heh heh heh.... Exactly as I'd
    		thought... Now everything hs
    		been sorted out... Perfect
    		execution, as always.
    
    communication device rings
    
    Jimmer:		Now is not the time...
    
    Amante:		Hiiii! I thought you'd be done
    		soon, so I thought I'd touch 
    		base.
    
    Jimmer:		....Where were you? Because 
    		of that, I had to physically
    		participate myself...
    
    Amante:		Awh, I'm sorry.... I just went 
    		to say hi to Mr. Mathers.
    
    Jimmer:		Why would you do that? That
    		is my job.
    
    Amante:		Well, you can't really report
    		the information anymore......
    
    Jimmer:		....Ah, trying to monopolize
    		your contacts?
    
    Amante:		Oh, come ON! Don't look at me
    		like that! This is not only my 
    		choice, you know. The old
    		man, and the other old people
    		who are much, much more
    		powerful - they all wanted it
    		that way. See? It's not my
    		fault, so don't blame me!
    
    Jimmer:		(The escape pod doesn't work!
    		Was that initial......Ah.... I
    		see....)
    
    Amante:		See, I really think it's only 
    		fair that people get a taste
    		of their own medicine, don't 
    		you agree? So how does it 
    		feel to be viciously
    		abandoned?
    
    Jimmer:		<<cackle>>
    
    Amante:		Hmmm? You're really cracking
    		up. Oh well. It doesn't make a
    		difference, you'll die here
    		regardless. Okay, see you!
    
    Jimmer:		This? Happening to
    		me...?.....Heh.....heh heh
    		heh......Haaa ha haaah!
    
    Ares:		....Why are you here.....?
    		You....... Go home....
    		
    Cage:		What? Things are just
    		starting to get good! We can
    		finally start over, as
    		friends....
    
    Ares:		....Friends.....Heh heh, that's
    		true. If I had seen it that
    		way earlier....uggg!
    		Eeggheghe!!
    
    Cage:		Ares?!
    
    Ares:		I...I'm all right.... Still
    		okay...Cage, will you play....it
    		for me one more time? The
    		proof of our friendship....
    
    Cage:		Of course!
    
    The song plays
    
    Ares:		...This song brought you to
    		me...I had finally gotten over
    		my feelings of hate toward
    		the world, my aggression
    		toward all people, and had
    		sworn to avenge my parents...
    		Heh heh...Cage, you always
    		had a pure heart...so honest
    		and simple it surprised me. I
    		think maybe I envied you for 
    		that...you had everything I
    		had lost. I just didn't have
    		the courage to admit it to
    		myself, because it would have
    		discredited my entire past,
    		and how I had felt. I was
    		trying to escape myself.
    
    Cage:		That's not true! You could do
    		things that I couldn't do, and
    		you knew things that I didn't
    		know. I looked up to you.
    		Even now, you are what I
    		aspire to be... Don't talk
    		about the past!
    
    Ares:		...Thanks. But you know now,
    		Don't you? Now that you've
    		found your own path, there
    		are things you have to do.
    		People you have to protect. I
    		shouldn't be one of them.
    
    Cage:		Ares....
    
    Ares:		Stay kind, just the way you
    		are now. Don't turn into me.
    		You are free....
    
    Cage:		No! Everyone...everyone here
    		is going home alive! There's
    		got to be a way! You can't
    		give up!
    
    Ares:		....I told you. The world will
    		be rid of a hideous man. This
    		body has reached its limits.
    		Medication has begun to be
    		ineffective.....
    
    Cage:		No....no, you're wrong....
    
    Myona:		Cage.....
    
    Pharsti:	Cage, may I inform you that
    		the situation is not promising.
    		There needs to be a
    		well-formed plan in order to
    		avoid placing everyone on the
    		ground in danger.
    
    Cage:		I know, but.......what am I 
    		supposed to do?
    
    Ares:		...I have an idea.
    
    Myona:		Really?
    
    Pharsti:	We are thinking of the same
    		thing, it seems....
    		Self-evacuation has begun.
    		Cockpit block is being
    		removed.
    
    Cage:		Wha........? Hey, what.....
    
    A crashing sound, Cage was ejected from the cockpit
    
    Cage:		Aaah!!
    
    Myona:		Watch out!!
    
    Cage:		N-Nice catch..... Thank you
    		Myona. You just saved me.
    
    Ares:		Pharsti...no, Myona. Take care
    		of Cage, okay?
    
    Myona:		.....Ares....
    
    Cage:		Pharsti! What are you doing?!
    
    Pharsti:	I have been doing your
    		bidding all this time. At least
    		let me have my way once.
    
    Cage:		Pharsti..... What are you.....
    
    Pharsti:	I will manipulate the
    		structure of Marlblanke to
    		our advantage. If one frame
    		manages amplification, another
    		frame may use that
    		amplification to form a
    		barrier. It would be
    		impossible to shield the entire
    		facility area, but I can
    		become a pinpoint barrier for 
    		at least the people on the 
    		ground.
    
    Cage:		But Ares and you are not in
    		top form! You'll never survive
    		through something like that!
    
    Pharsti:	Stop worrying. I'll show you
    		what Orbital Frames are truly
    		capable of.
    
    Cage:		Pharsti.....
    
    Pharsti:	Miss Myona... I promise you
    		that I will take over all of 
    		your worries. Please
    		concentrate on taking care of
    		Cage.
    
    Myona:		That is not your 
    		responsibility! I know you
    		don't really want to do it....
    		You want to be with Cage,
    		don't yo? Don't do it! I will
    		go, and you....
    
    Pharsti:	There is nobody else I can
    		ask to take care of him. I am
    		you, you are me.... You
    		understand how I feel, don't 
    		you?
    
    Myona:		....Y-Yes......
    
    Pharsti:	Myona, Cage is impossible,
    		impulsive, and he is a child,
    		so he is a lot of work. Now
    		it's your turn to put up with
    		him. Don't say I did not warn
    		you!
    
    Myona:		Pharsti....you are so silly. I
    		can tell that you're crying.
    
    Pharsti:	You are the one who is silly...
    		Computers do not....cry.
    		Besides, this is not goodbye...
    		I will return and take Cage
    		back...
    
    Myona:		.... That is such nonsense....
    		You've been lying all this
    		time...
    	
    Pharsti:	Take care of Cage. Myona...
    		my other self.....
    
    Myona:		I will.
    
    Ares:		Cage. I'll come get you if you
    		ever make my little sister
    		cry. I can't give my sister to
    		any guy unless he is at least
    		better than me. You
    		understand?
    
    Cage:		...Harsh as usual, Ares...but I
    		promise. One of these days,
    		I'll be as good as you... And
    		soon, I'll be better!
    
    Ares:		Heh heh.... Good answer.
    
    Myona:		Ares.....
    
    Ares:		You take care of my good
    		friend....
    		
    Ares and Pharsti takes off
    
    Cage:		Ares.....Pharsti....
    
    exploding sounds
    
    Pharsti:	(Cage.... I enjoyed every
    		second with you... I am so
    		happy that I can be of use
    		to you, until...the very end.....)
    
    exploding sounds
    
    Cage:		The sky....It's lit up....
    
    Myona:		It's almost like a halo.....
    
    Cage:		Metatron...They call it the
    		angel at the heart of heaven.
    		It's a cruel angel....
    
    Myona:		But it has protected us. ANd
    		I am sure it will continue to
    		do so....
    
    Cage:		....Yeah.. I guess so.
    
    Myona:		Cage....Are you crying?
    
    Cage:		... That light....It's pretty,
    		isn't it.
    
    Myona:		Yes....very.....
    
    Cage:		(Ares.....harsti.....thank you....
    		I'll never forget either of 
    		you.....!!)
    		
    [ SCENE25 CLEARED ]
    
    Announcer: 
    According to an announcement
    by the UNSF, the missile
    attack has critically damaged
    the terrorist group claiming
    to fight for Martian
    Independence. The group,
    which has lost its mastermind
    in the attack, is expected to
    lose power completely over
    time, and recent events lend
    hope to achieving peace in
    previously riot-torn
    territories on Mars....The
    Hellespontos government has
    evaluated the state of these
    areas gravely, and has stated
    that they will reconsider
    postponing the tax increase
    to a later time.... In other
    news......

    Semyl:
    
    ...<<huff>> O,
    overslept.....<<huff>> Uhhh
    it's too early.
    
    Robin:
    I can't believe you! They're 
    taking off today!
    
    Semyl:	
    Heh....sorry......Um, where's
    Razma at? He's not here
    yet?
    
    Mebius:
    Hm? You're not together?
    
    Semyl:
    Weird.... He left before me...
    And what's with the guests of
    honor? They didn't jet
    already, right?
    
    Twede:
    They are going through 
    pre-boarding procedures. I
    think they will be returning
    shortly.....
    
    Nadia:
    ....I have an important errand
    to run. Make sure those two 
    get this.
    
    Robin:
    What is it?
    
    Nadia:
    It is a multi-purpose
    superlight survival tool. It
    has been constructed to be
    useful to someone of Cage's
    strength.
    
    Semyl:
    What kind of wild place are
    those two going to?!
    
    Yukito:
    Shh! Excuse me, Ibelieve the
    appropriate response in this
    case is to take the gift and
    smile....
    
    Semyl:
    Huh. I guess. I still don't get 
    it, but anyway.
    
    Twede:
    This does appear very useful.
    I will see to it that it
    reaches their hands.
    
    Nadia:
    Please do. And let them know
    that I am glad to ahve met
    them.
    
    Robin:
    They'll be back soon... Why
    don't you wait?
    
    Nadia:
    Actually, I don't enjoy this
    type of thing. So long.
    
    Warren:
    That man waiting over
    there...
    
    Yukito:
    Isn't he....a general from the
    army....Frazer?
    
    Mebius:
    Strictly speaking, he would be
    an 'ex-' army general. But
    taht would make sense....
    
    Semyl:
    What's the story here?
    
    Mebius:
    Heh heh....And thus the
    tangled web is woven.....
    
    Warren:
    (.....Mebius..)
    
    Myona:
    We're back.
    
    Cage:
    Phew....Hey, where's Ms. 
    Nadia?
    
    Twede:
    She had something to do. She
    asked me to give this to
    you.
    
    Cage:
    Hey! A survival tool! It's a
    Zoria custom model! Gosh, I
    always wanted one of these
    things!
    
    Semyl:
    .... He likes it.
    
    Yukito:
    W-Well, to each his own.
    
    Razma:
    ....Ah! Here they come!
    
    Cage:
    Razma!
    
    Semyl:
    You're late! What were you
    doin'?!
    
    Razma
    Hey, sorry. I'm a busy guy.
    
    Mebius:
    Oh, are you here to take
    care of it? That's pretty
    manly of you... oh, it's still
    going on, isn't it?
    
    Razma:
    Go easy on me, OK?
    
    Semyl:
    ... You still didn't do it?!
    
    Razma:
    No! I'll DO it! But today...! This
    is killing me!
    
    Semyl:
    What!? I'M going to kill you!
    
    Jojo:
    Semyyyyylll!
    
    Semyl:
    J-Jojo! Pauly! And Gilbert...!
    
    Pauly:
    Violence is bad.
    
    Gilbert:
    Yeah, Semyl!! Do it!
    
    Myona: 
    Were you late because you
    were rounding up these
    children?
    
    Razma:
    ....<<cough>>!! I think I
    deserve a little more trust.
    
    Semyl:
    S...sorry.....
    
    Jojo:
    Are you going away? I'll still
    be able to see you, right?
    
    Cage: 
    Of couse. I'm just going to
    go somewhere to find
    something.
    
    Jojo:
    To find something?
    
    Cage:
    Yeah. I promised a very
    important person that I
    would. Once I find it, I'll be
    back.
    
    Jojo:
    Really? Promise? You have to,
    because I'm going to marry
    you when I grow up.
    
    Cage:
    Ha ha ha ha ha.... That's
    right. I'm looking forward.....
    Owwww!
    
    Myona:
    ........
    
    Mebius:
    Uh-oh.
    
    Yukito:
    ....It sure is going to be
    lonely around here.
    
    Cage:
    I'm really glad that I met all
    of you. A lot has happened,
    but that is why I am here
    like this. I am forever
    indebted to you. Thank you
    for taking me in the way you
    did....
    
    Semyl:
    Well, nobody's focin' you to
    go, ya know? You could just
    stick around.....
    
    Cage:
    Thank you. But I didn't 
    choose to come here
    consciously. I can't take the
    easy way out and stay.
    
    Semyl:
    ...Cage.
    
    Cage:
    That and the fact that I
    promised Ares that I would
    someday be as good as him. I
    don't know when that is going
    to be, but I want to go to
    different places and meet
    different people, feel 
    different things, and then
    figure out what I am
    supposed to do. I want to
    give myself another
    opportunity to come back
    here because I want to.
    
    Semyl:
    .......
    
    Myona:
    Semyl. You've done so much
    for me... I'm really sad to be
    apart from you again. But
    we're friends no matter how
    far away we are, aren't we?
    We'll always be friends.
    
    Semyl:
    O-Of course! Myona, be good.
    You two better stay
    together.....
    
    Myona:
    N-No! Don't cry. Come on,
    smile!
    
    Warren:
    ........
    
    Yukito:
    Come on, Pops, say
    something.
    
    Warren:
    I can't deal with this stuff.
    
    Yukito:
    I know, that's why I said 
    that.
    
    Warren:
    You little......
    
    Cage:
    Mr. Yukito, Mr. Warren.
    
    Warren:
    Mm? Oh! Cage! um, er, what
    can I say....
    
    Cage:
    Thank you for everything. I 
    will never forget everything
    you have taught me.
    
    Yukito:
    Uh, right! Pops, too.....
    
    Warren:
    There's no need for that.
    From now on, you are going
    to have your experiences and
    teach yourself, right? That is
    much better than learning
    through waht you hear from
    someone else. It would make
    me happy if you rememberred
    us. But you need to paint
    over what you think you know
    now with your own 
    experiences!
    
    Cage:
    Yes, sir!
    
    Yukito:
    You don't have to think too
    hard about what he just said,
    cage. Even if you lie around
    like a bump on a log, you're
    still going to gain more rings.
    Otherwise you're going to be
    old and crusty in your early
    30s, like him.
    
    Cage:
    Heh heh....I think I know what
    you mean.
    
    Warren:
    Hey! WHat are you whispering
    about!
    
    Yukito:
    That I can't tell you.
    
    Warren:
    YOU!
    
    Myona:
    Cage. Don't you think they're
    a funny mix of people?
    
    Cage:
    Heh heh. They joke around on
    the surface, but they've been
    through a lot together. Their
    friendship is based on a deep
    sense of trust.
    
    Myona:
    ....They've been through a 
    lot...trust... Do you think you
    and I have that too?
    
    Cage:
    Of course. It's been that way
    for a long time now.
    
    Myona:
    Cage.....
    
    ????
    Aaaaaaaaaahhhhh!
    
    Razma:
    What was that?
    
    Robin:
    It sounded like a...baby.
    
    Warren:
    ...Razma. The sound's coming
    from that basket.
    
    Razma:
    What?!
    
    Gilbert:
    Semyl, he got that basket
    from some lady a little
    earlier.
    
    Pauly:
    Gilbert. You're not supposed 
    to tell anybody about that
    kind of stuff.
    
    Jojo: 
    Ohhhhhh!! Cuuuuute!
    
    Semyl:
    Y...You!! I can't believe it! I
    thought you would do it
    eventually, but..... You moron!
    Who is the mother, and where 
    is she?!
    
    Razma:
    Wait! You've got it all wrong!
    No! I wouldn't do something
    like that! Cage, help!
    
    Cage:		
    .... ANd how would I do that?
    
    Semyl:
    ....That's IT! Say your 
    prayers.
    
    Razma:
    I'm telling you, it wasn't like
    that! A person saying she 
    was a big fan of ours gave it
    to me telling me it was food 
    for all of us! I never thought
    there would be baby
    inside!
    
    Semyl:
    ....That's all you gotta say for
    yourself?
    
    Razma:
    Y-You're not getting it.....
    
    Baby:
    Waaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh!!
    
    Mebius:
    She won't sto[ crying. Maybe
    she's hungry? Just a inute,
    okay, I'll go find you some
    milk......Warren, will you hold
    on to her for a while? I
    can't trust them with her!
    
    Warren:
    Hey, wait! Why do I.... It's 
    just going to make her cry
    harder!
    
    Mebius:
    Should I ask Yukito, then?
    
    Yukito:
    Oh look, it's a little girl. All
    living things are most
    adorable when they are this
    small. Heh heh.....
    
    Baby:
    Aaaaaaaaaahhhhh!
    
    Warren:
    F-Fine! I'll hold it, give it to 
    me!
    
    Baby:
    Ah....?
    
    Mebius:
    She stopped crying!
    Perfect.....just....don't move.....
    
    Baby:
    .........
    
    Warren:
    She's asleep? ...Children are
    cute whatever they do.....
    
    Mebius:
    <<giggle>>...I agree....
    Perhaps we should....
    
    Twede:
    Hm? There is a letter.... I 
    see, the girl who brought this
    child is not her mother. She
    was protecting her because
    she is an orphan, and decided 
    that giving her to us would
    be the most sound decision.
    She apologizes for the
    inconvenience repreatedly.
    
    Robin:
    It's terrible, but it's not
    unusual. Poor little thing......
    
    Mebius:
    She has nobody else; perhaps
    we should raise her.
    
    Warren:
    Good idea. All of us can......
    
    Yukito:
    That won't work! She needs
    parents, don't you think?
    
    ...You two take her.
    
    Warren:
    Hunh? What are you saying?!
    That could never be good for
    her! Besides, that's rude to
    Mebius!
    
    Robin:
    But...I don't think there's
    anyone else who can do it.
    Right, Twede?
    
    Twede:
    ....I must agree.
    
    Warren"
    M, Mebius! Say something!
    Please!
    
    Mebius:
    <<giggle>>....She is so cute
    when she's sleeping.... It's
    okay, little one. Everything's
    going to be okay.... Did you
    say something?
    
    Warren:
    .....N-No, I didn't say
    anything.
    
    Baby:
    <<giggle>>
    
    Mebius:
    Look! She's laughing! You're
    awake? She's laughing!
    
    Twede:
    ...Even in the most terrible of
    eras... No, especially in a time
    like this, we need to see
    innocent smiles. For that
    purpose, people will procreate
    and leave a part of
    themselves for the future....
    It's a very strange thing.
    
    Warren:
    W-Well in that case, you and
    Robin could take it....
    
    Robin:
    Regrettably, I plan on having
    my own so I would have to
    refuse that offer.
    
    Yukito:
    Really?!
    
    Twede:
    .......
    
    P.A.:
    ... I repeat. All passengers
    traveling on Flight #226
    departing at 1300...
    
    Myona:
    Oh.....Cage.
    
    Cage:
    Yeah. I'm sorry to bother you
    at an important time, but we
    should get going soon...
    
    Yukito:
    Oh yeah. Come back soon!
    
    Mebius:
    You'd better come back
    before she starts talking. It'll
    be gppd training for you.
    
    Warren:
    Um, er, take care.
    
    Robin:
    If you get in trouble, just go
    to the closest NUT, okay?
    
    Twede:
    ....We'll be able to eliminate
    most problems from here.
    
    Cage:
    Heh heh....Thank you very
    much.
    
    Semyl:
    Good luck! Send me an
    e-mail!
    
    Myona:
    O..kay. Um, Semyl.... How about
    forgiving him now?
    
    Razma:
    ...The end is near.....
    
    Semyl:
    Ain't no way! He is over!
    
    Myona:
    Ha ha ha.....
    
    Cage:
    Thank you, everyone. I am
    sorry that we are leaving,
    jus when things are
    beginning for Mars.....
    
    Robin:
    Leave the rest to us. You 
    two have done more than
    enough. Until you come back,
    I'll make everyone work twice
    as hard. It's going to get
    busy, folks!
    
    Yukito:
    <<sigh>> No vacationf or us?
    But we can't complain - our
    actions made a difference.
    That gives me the energy to
    do just a little more.
    
    Semyl:
    Of COURSE! BIS is forever!!
    
    Razma:
    ...G...Good luck.... Um, she
    might kill me before I see
    you again.....
    
    Cage:
    Heh heh. Well, we're going
    now!
    
    P.A.
    The ship has been stabilized
    Takeoff sequence will begin in
    3 minutes time, but please
    fasten your belts until our
    departure. Our onboard
    monitors are showing a
    real-time picture of Mars......
    
    Cage:
    (Mars.... There are people
    living on that red planet, just
    as there are on Earth.... But
    why can't people jst get
    along? Is there no choice but
    to keep fighting? No, there
    must be a better solution
    than that. Everyone is human.
    Everyone is striving for the
    same thing, to survive.....)
    
    thought:
    Deckson: 
    Cage.... What is a human life?
    In the scope of the vast
    universe, a life is but a
    minute light, a split second.
    In the smallness of ourselves,
    we house enough anger,
    desperation, and
    destructiveness to set the
    entire universe ablaze.... I
    wasn't able to figure it out,
    sadly. The next time we meet,
    if you've figured it
    out....please tell me.
    
    
    Cage:
    (Mr. Deckson....I may never
    find the answer to your
    question. But even so, I know
    that you can't stop looking
    for it. If you don't continue
    looking, you definitely won't
    find it... Do you think that
    things will be okay? Do you
    think that this hatred will
    pass, and become something
    more constructive? I believe
    that will happen. Everyone in
    the world......has the power to
    change the future......)
    
    Myona:
    Cage, what are you looking
    at?
    
    Cage:
    Just looking at Mars.....
    
    Myona:
    ...So much has happened. The
    complex relationship between
    Earth and Mars, Mr. Deckson
    and Phil......
    
    Cage:
    ......
    
    Myona:
    And Ares and Pharsti.....
    
    Cage:
    ...I wonder if that baby is
    going to be all right.
    
    Myona:
    Huh?
    
    Cage:
    I wonder if she'll grow up
    happy.
    
    Myona:
    I wouldn't worry. Ms. Mebius
    and Mr. Warren are taking
    care of her. And everybody
    else will support them too.
    
    Cage:
    Yeah, that's true. She's going 
    to be a real character, being
    raised by that crew.
    
    Myona:
    <<giggle>> I know. But I'm
    sure she'll be kind and
    generous.
    
    Cage:
    A lot of lives have been lost,
    but for the sake of those
    lost lives, we have to protect
    the new lives.
    
    All of us need to keep moving
    forward. Let's always
    remember to move forward,
    together.
    
    Myona:
    Is that the right thing? How
    about everyone...
    
    Cage:
    They say human souls are
    invited to heaven, and wll
    descend again.... I'm sure that
    holds true for Pharsti, too.
    
    Myona:
    Yes...That day, if the two of
    them were given an invitation,
    I am sure they are together
    in the same place.
    
    Cage:
    ....Hey, maybe they'll even be
    reborn together.
    
    Myona:
    If they can be born again
    with their souls united, I
    hope that they grow to be
    old and happy.
    
    Cage:
    Yeah, I hope that they will 
    have no restraints int heir
    next life. Free, at last.
    
    Myona:
    Free....Yes, that would be
    nice.
    
    P.A.:
    The process of space
    distortion is about to begin.
    Once the space has been
    pressurized, please note that
    all communication devices will
    be temporarily unavailable....
    
    Myona:
    We're really going, Cage.
    
    Cage:
    I know.
    
    Myona:
    <<yawn>>
    
    Cage:
    Heh. You must be tired. Get
    some sleep.
    
    Myona:
    Mm-hmm. I'm sorry, I'm going
    to take a nap.
    
    Cage:
    Go ahead.
    
    Myona:
    Hey....
    
    Cage:
    Yes?
    
    Myona:
    Can we hold hands?
    
    Cage:
    Sure.
    
    Cage:
    (Ares, you said I was free.
    I'm going to go and see for 
    myself.)
    
    (First, I have to
    change......right, Ares? I'm on
    my way.....and I'm going to
    find what I'm looking for. My
    future..... Ares, I am no 
    longer confused. After all.....)
    
    Cage:
    (I'm not alone. I have Myona
    now.)
    
    Myona:
    .....
    
    Cage:
    ....
    
    (And I am going to become
    good enough for your sister.
    No matter what happens!)

    CREDITS
    -One of the background pictures in the credits is
    a hospitalized Ares! (interesting)
    -------------------------------------------------
    
    
    something rings
    
    ??????:
    Um, heLLO? It's moi! Are you
    sure you wanted them to go?
    
    Amante:
    If you would have just left it
    to yours truly, I could have 
    passed it off as an accident
    and...What? Mm-hm......Aha.
    Aaaw! What's the fun in that?
    I mean, like who CARES, you
    know? We were able to use
    Jimmer and Ares to raise
    awareness about anti-Earth
    activity, and in the process
    we got rid of a wole bunch
    of troublemakers - including
    that Zephyrs, with his totally
    retatrded experiments.
    
    Everything went as planned,
    and everyone's totally looking
    forward to what BAHRAM is
    going to do next. Now it's
    time to congratulate
    ourselves on a job well
    done....
    
    Huh? Yes, yes. Absolutely! 
    Even though the perpetrator
    of the next strategy is an
    outsider, he's nonetheles a 
    hero of BAHRAM. But that's
    exactly why....Was it Leo?
    Well, anyway. Why waste time
    on a kid? .....What? Uh-huh...
    Well, I guess so, but....
    Atcherservice! I'm coming
    over right now...... Yes. Who?
    Mathers? Ohh that guy... He's
    no match for me. Too easy.
    
    Hm? Hee, hee....I know. It's
    happening soon...I'm super
    excited.......Soon, EVERYTHING is
    going to be perfect....
    
    Oh, and Ridley....
