[The game opens with an FMV, showing fireballs in a sleepy, mist-filled town.
Enemies on their steeds lay waste to the buildings. Eventually, the commander
arrives at the site.]

Soldier: "Great Commander, this way."

[He's taken to a girl.]

Commander: "So, this is her."

[He takes out a dull ball and holds it above her forehead. It glows and the
light shines into her, then fades.]

Commander: "Hmm, indeed. Put her in custody. Is this really necessary?

Man in Hood: "It is his his majesty, Emperor Doel's command, to take that
             girl into custody."

Commander: "Who is she?"

Man in Hood: "That is not your concern."

[Elsewhere, a woman stands on a cliff and watches a forest. A gigantic
green creature pokes its head out.]

Woman: "The Green Tusked Dragon, Feyrbrand."

[She starts to jump down into the forest. Meanwhile, in the woods, a man
in red armor sits on a log, reading a paper.]

Dart: "Hmm, 'Chance of war more likely'. I hope it's just a rumor."

[The sound of enemies riding by attracts Dart's attention.]

Dart: "...?"

[He goes to see at the road, and two stragglers come upon him.]

Soldier: "Who are you!?"

Soldier 2: "Are you a mercenary of Basil?"

Soldier: "Answer!!"

[Dart knocks the polearm back with his sword.]

Soldier: "What are you doing!? Are you drawing your sword against us!?"

[A roar in the forest ensues.]

Soldier 2: "Wh, What is!?"

[Feyrbrand appears on the road, sending the soldiers retreating.]

Dart: "What the heck is this!? Argh!! I gotta do something or I'll be killed!!"

[Dart retreats, too.]

Dart: "What a monster! It's coming! Urgh!!"

[A woman drops down and takes Dart behind a rock.]

Dart: "Who are you!?"

Woman: "(Shhh. If you don't want to die.)"

[Feyrbrand leaves once he can't find his prey.]

Dart: "Thank you for saving me. What the heck was that!?"

Woman: "It's a Dragon."

Dart: "Dragon!?"

Woman: "But it's strange. That village could've been easily destroyed without
       a Dragon."

Dart: "The village...? Are you talking about Seles!? Then those soldiers
      were!?"

Woman: "There won't be anything left by now."

Dart: "Seles is my village!!"

[Dart leaves and a strange black-ish glow resonates on the woman.]

Woman: [Oh my god...!? That man must be...? No. There is no way.]

o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o
| Ch. 1 - 02 - Seles                                                     SLS1 |
o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

[Dart tops a hill and sees Seles burning.]

Dart: "Oh no!! My god!! Where is everybody!?

[Dart jumps the town fence. He sees some soldiers by a villager.]

Dart: "!?"

Villager: "You didn't get enough killing!?"

Soldier of Imperial Sandora: "Hee hee hee!! It may be enough if I kill you."

[Another soldier kicks him.]

Villager: "Ah...."

Dart: "Stop!!"

Soldier of Imperial Sandora 2: "Oh, a mercenary? Isn't it a little late for you
                               to show up?"

Dart: "Shut up!! What are you doing here!?"

Soldier of Imperial Sandora 2: "Can't you see? We're gonna occupy this area,
                               and these worms were in our way."

Dart: "Occupy!? Were you sent by the Imperial Army?"

Soldier of Imperial Sandora 2: "Even if we were, it's none of your business.
                               You're gonna die soon!!"

[Dart defeats the two soldiers, and they flee.]

Soldiers of Imperial Sandora: "Ahhhhh!"

Villager: "Are...are you...really...Dart?"

Dart: "Yes! It's me! Why is Seles under attack!?"

Villager: "War... Imperial Sandora...attacked us..."

Dart: "What about the truce!?"

Villager: "Yeah. Suddenly... I didn't imagine...they could come to...such an
          outlying area."

Dart: "If only I had come back sooner!"

Villager: "There is something, you have to do... Shana. Rescue Shana, only...
          you can......"

[The villager dies.]

Dart: "What about Shana!? Hey!! Wait!!"

[Dart walks further into town and sees a man face-down.]

Dart: "!? Hang on! Ahh...."

[The face-down man gets up.]

Plos: "That voice, is that you Dart?"

Dart: "This way."

[He helps him sit down by a wall.]

Dart: "It's just a light wound."

Plos: "I guess, I was lucky. But look at this village. If only you came back
      earlier..."

Dart: "..."

Plos: "It's about Shana, too."

Dart: "What's wrong with Shana?"

Plos: "She was taken away. It seems Shana was their primary purpose."

Dart: "Do you know where they went?"

Plos: "I...don't know."

[A Sandora commander runs over.]

Dart: "I'm gonna make him talk!"

Commander: "Besting a private is no reason to be confident."

Dart: "Where did you take Shana?"

Commander: "Shana.... Don't worry about her. She must be receiving the
           courtesies of Hellena Prison by now."

Dart: "Hellena!?"

Commander: "Surprised, huh? We specifically invited only that woman."

Dart: "You must be kidding!? You attacked the village only to kidnap Shana!?"

Commander: "Exactly, but don't worry. I will let you follow them. Although not
           to Hellena! To 'Hell'!"

[Dart defeats the Commander in battle.]

Plos: "Dart, you are going to go rescue Shana, aren't you? I won't stop you,
      but be careful. Your journey is not yet over, is it?"

Dart: "...No."

Plos: "You can count on us about Seles. There should be enough people who can
      still move."

Dart: "Thank you. When I settle everything, I'll be back. With Shana."

[As Dart leaves the village, a scene in Hellena Prison plays. Shana is thrown
into a jail cell by a guard.]

Hellena Warden: "Be good in there!"

[Elsewhere, on a wooden walkway, an enormously fat man confronts the hooded
man from the beginning video.]

Fruegel: "Who the heck is the girl!? You can tell me!!"

Man in Hood: "The world's future rests on her."

Fruegel: "That's it!?"

Man in Hood: "This is enough information for you. Those of you who do not grasp
             the value should just do what the order says."

Fruegel: "I am not taking your orders! Only His Majesty, Doel can order me!"

Man in Hood: "Anyway.... You must remember this."

[He whips out a sword and Fruegel falls back.]

Man in Hood: "If you make a scratch on her, it'll cost more than your head.
             This is a message from Emperor Doel."

Fruegel: "Argh!!"

[Out of frustration, Fruegel throws a guard off the side of the walkway.]

Guard: "Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!"

| Ch. 1 - 03 - Forest                                                    FRS1 |
o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

[Dart enters the forest and a dog barks at him.]

"!! I have no time to deal with you! It reminds me...."

[He has a flashback of himself and Shana when they were little.]

Shana: "This way! This way!!

[A dog barks at them.]

Dart: "Cut it out! Leave Shana alone!!"

[The flashback ends.]

Dart: "'Leave Shana alone!' Hang in there, I'll get you out from there."

o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o
| Ch. 1 - 04 - Hellena Prison                                            HLL1 |
o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

[The prison is located on a small island offshore, connected to the mainland
by a wooden bridge. It constantly emits smoke. Dart runs to the path and looks
out at the structure.]

Dart: "Well, how can I sneak in?"

[The young man takes cover as a cart rolls by just then; he follows it to the
prison checkpoint, where a guard inspects the cargo.]

Gatekeeper of Hellena: "...I see. Good meat and fish. Sir Freugel will be
                       happy."

Merchant: "You bought a lot recently. Is there something going on?"

Gatekeeper of Hellena: "It's not the business of a merchant like you!"

Merchant: "Okay, okay. Sorry."

Gatekeeper of Hellena: "I'll inspect the load!"

[The gatekeeper does.]

Gatekeeper of Hellena: "It seems to be okay. Lower the bridge!"

Dart: (Now!)

[He jumps in the back and bums a ride inside.]

Dart: (I made it.)

[The merchant sees him.]

Merchant: "Who, who are you!?"

Dart: (I'm discovered!)

Voice: "This way!!"

[Dart kills the guard that comes to fight him.]

Merchant: "He, Help me! I am just a delivery man."

Dart: "Be quiet. I am not going to kill you."

Merchant: "O, Okay. I won't make a noise."

[Dart heads to the cell block area.]

Hellena Warden: "Move quicker!"

Dart: "?!"

[Down the way, the warden is yelling at some prisoners.]

Hellena Warden: "Move quicker!"

Prisoner: "Argh!"

Hellena Warden: "You have such bad luck! You will regret not being killed on
                the battlefield!"

Knight of Basil: "What do you mean!?"

Hellena Warden: "You really believe you can live comfortably in the jail? The
                head warden, Fruegel will feed you to the monster!"

[The warden blocks the way as one of the knights tries to escape.]

Hellena Warden: "Oops?!"

Knight of Basil: "Feed us to the monster!? I won't let you humiliate us
                 anymore!"

Hellena Warden: "Oh, feisty feisty. It's the worst kind of POW, but the best
                kind of feed."

Knight of Basil: "If you want to kill me, kill me now!!"

Voice: "I won't let him!"

[A man with a spear kills a warden and appears in the room.]

Knight of Basil: "Sir Lavitz!!!"

Hellena Warden: "You, you bastard!! You broke out of the jail!? Silly guy!!
                You think you can escape from here alone!?"

Lavitz: "I'll take care of this!! Survive and go back to Indels Castle alive!!
        Tell King Albert...!"

[The knights run off...]

Voice: "I won't let you!!"

[..and the knights get thrown off the balcony and fall to their deaths.]

Guard: "I took care of those guys!"

[Dart runs over.]

Dart: "Is this civil war!?

Guard: "You! Who are you!? Are you a dog of Basil too!?"

[Lavitz clears the guards and starts to fight with Dart.]

Lavitz: "Who are you?"

Dart: "I am Dart! I am not your enemy!"

Lavitz: "I am Lavitz Slambert! I am the head of the First Knighthood of the
        Kingdom of Basil! Well, it seems we don't have time for introductions!"

Dart: "No we don't!"

[The two fend off the guards. Lavitz looks down to where the knights fell.]

Lavitz: "I will carry out your wish. You said, Dart. I cannot imagine there is
        somebody who intentionally comes to Hellena. What are you up to?"

Dart: "I am here to rescue someone important to me. Do you know anything about
      her!? Her name is Shana!"

Lavitz: "I am sorry, but...."

Dart: "I'll look elsewhere."

Lavitz: "Wait! I'll go with you."

Dart: "I thought you had to go back to the castle as soon as possible?"

Lavitz: "She's important, this girl you are looking for?"

Dart: "It's my problem. It was my fault."

Lavitz: "I don't know what brought you here but Hellena is not that easy to
        go through alone."

Dart: "..."

Lavitz: "That goes for me too. But, I can break out from here, together with
        you! Of course with the girl."

Dart: "How come you trust me? We've just met."

Lavitz: "The raid you made was quite impressive. I trusted you to guard my
        back. That's the way I think."

Dart: "All right. Let's go together."

[The two find their way to the second tower, and come to a room crawling with
security guards.]

Lavitz: "This room is extra tightly guarded."

Dart: "!? What about this key?"

Lavitz: "Take it with us. We'll need it if the girl called Shana is under
        confinement. But why only that girl?"

Dart: "I intend to ask that directly to the head warden. But that's after we
      rescue Shana.

[In the second tower, the party finds guards standing outside a cell.]

Guard: "You, you are from Basil!!"

Dart: "Lavitz! Let's get'em before they make a noise!"

Lavitz: "Yeah!"

[The guards are dispatched.]

Voice: "Who is it!?"

Dart: "That voice!! Is that Shana!? It's me!!"

Voice: "Dart!? Is that you Dart!?"

Dart: "Yes it is me!! I'm here to rescue you!!"

Lavitz: "Hurry up!! The guard is coming!!"

[Dart enters the cell.]

Dart: "Shana!!"

Shana: "Dart...."

Dart: "I'm here to rescue you."

Shana: "..."

Dart: "You haven't forgotten about me even though we haven't seen each other
      in five years?"

Shana: "How could I forget? Show me your face."

Dart: "I haven't changed much."

Shana: "Yes, you have. You look much stronger, much stronger than the Dart I
       knew."

Lavitz: "Hurry up!! The guards are coming back!!"

[They exit the cell.]

Guard: "The girl is breaking out!!"

Guard 2: "I won't let her!!"

[They give the guards a beatdown.]

Dart: "Are you hurt?"

Shana: "I am fine."

Lavitz: "You can celebrate later. We are still deep in the belly of the enemy.
        Besides, it's too damp to have a party, isn't it?"

Dart: "Let's go, Shana. Follow me okay?"

Shana: "Dart, I'm 18 years old now. I can fight too!"

[She steals a bow lying against the wall.]

Dart: "Shana...."

Lavitz: "She grew up. She was alone in such a hell like place. If she was a
        regular woman, she wouldn't have been able to survive. Of course, there
        are not that many fools who would come here to save her."

Dart: "But, the Shana of my memory hasn't changed a bit."

Lavitz: "Let's talk about that after we get out of here."

[Elsewhere, guards are reporting to Fruegel about the prisoners' escape.]

Fruegel: "Say that again!?"

Hellena Warden: "Well, well, the Knight from Basil broke out of the jail!! I
                am sorry!!"

Fruegel: "I am not talking about that rat!! After that!!"

Hellena Warden: "The girl from Seles was taken by the red guy."

Fruegel: "What!? What did you say!?"

Hellena Warden: "The girl was taken away by the guy with red armor!!"

[Fruegel throws the warden over the railing.]

Hellena Warden: "AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!"

Fruegel: "You bastard! Don't let them out alive!! Wait!! I almost forgot the
         most important thing, don't kill the girl. IT's an order from His
         Majesty Doel!"

Hellena Warden: "Aye, aye sir!!"

Fruegel: "If you fail, I will behead all of you!!"

[The warden leaves.]

Fruegel: "The red one!? I'll get you!! I might as well dye everything else
         red with your blood!!"

[As the party turns to leave Hellena, the warden is there waiting for them.]

Fruegel: "So, you are the red one acting like a prince!!"

Dart: "Then what!?"

Fruegel: "There is one answer!! You and the leader of the knights are feed for
         the pet!! After I mince you up!!"

Dart: "Lavitz, is this the head warden?"

Lavitz: "His name is Fruegel. He is so bad, even the people of his own country
        are afraid of him."

Fruegel: "You have such a calm face, or are you paralyzed from fear!?"

Dart: "You attacked Seles didn't you!?"

Fruegel: "No. I just gave them the order."

Dart: "Why did you have Shana taken away!?"

Fruegel: "I don't know. Emperor Doel said to just bring that girl back. The
         order was so trivial that I added the new one of annihilating Seles!!"

Dart: "Fruegel! Unforgivable!!"

[The party defeats Fruegel.]

Fruegel: "AGHHH!"

Dart: "Is he immortal!? Let's get out of here, Shana!"

Lavitz: "Get on the horse!! Hurry!!"

Fruegel: "Bastard!! Keep them from going even if it costs you your life!!"

[The two make a breakaway and start to leave the prison.]

Voice: "Raise the bridge!! Jail break!!"

Shana: "Lavitz!"

[Lavitz manages to get past the bridge before it raises all the way.]

Lavitz: "Whoa!!"

[They escape. Meanwhile, inside:]

Fruegel: "Bring her back here!! Or you will be dead!!"

[Fruegel sees the man in the black hood.]

Fruegel: "Y, You!! When did you sneak in!?"

Man in Hood: "Should we report this to His Majesty Doel?"

Fruegel: "Wait! I'll bring back the girl!"

Man in Hood: "Otherwise, you would be dead by now."

[Fruegel turns to a warden nearby.]

Fruegel: "You go too, bastard!!"

[Fruegel walks off.]

Man in Hood: "It doesn't matter. Everything is going just as I planned.
             Yes.... They don't know they are in the palm of my hand."

o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

[The party retreats back to the forest separating them from Seles. They stop
when they see enemies on horses ahead.]

Shana: "What is...?"

Dart: "It's coming from the Forest."

Lavitz: "It seems that the Imperial army is camped here. It's too risky for
        us."

Dart: "Yeah. Let's take another route."

o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o
| Ch. 1 - 06 - Prairie                                                   PRR1 |
o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

[The party enters the prairie after fleeing from the Forest. Lavitz lags.]

Dart: "Lavitz, can you keep going?"

Lavitz: "Yeah!"

[An arrow comes over the hill and hits Lavitz in the leg.]

Lavitz: "Ahg!!"

Dart: "!!"
Shana: "!!"

Dart: "Hide yourselves!!"

[Dart helps Lavitz hide behind a rock.]

Dart: "Does it hurt?"

Lavitz: "It's just a scratch."

Shana: "But you gotta cover the wound."

Lavitz: "it can be treated later. We gotta run first."

Dart: "I will carry Lavitz. Shana, go first."

Shana: "Don't treat me like a child. I will go with you guys."

Lavitz: "I can walk by myself."

Shana: "Here they come!"

Dart: "Let's go!!"

[The three run off as the enemies top the hill. In the next screen, they find
a large tree.]

Dart: "!!"

[They all hide behind it as the wardens come. A noise catches their attention.]

Hellena Warden A: "!!"
Hellena Warden B: "!!"

Hellena Warden A: "There they are!!"

Hellena Warden B: "Women first!! Then we might spare those people in Basil!!"

[A little mouse runs out onto the path.]

Hellena Warden B: "Is this the fugitive?"

Hellena Warden A: "Don't be silly!! Go look over there!!"

[The wardens run down the road.]

Dart: "That was close."

[In the adjacent screen, they find a stable. Lavitz kneels down.]

Lavitz: "Tut, such a trifle wound."

Shana: "Does it still hurt?"

Lavitz: "A little bit."

Shana: "I learned first aid, I thought it would be useful. Particularly in
       times like these."

Dart: "Shana? Learning? That's something new!"

Shana: "Mr. So-and-so might come back injured at any moment."

Dart: "Let's use the shack over there."

Lavitz: "All right."

[They head into the shack, and Shana patches the Basil knight up.]

Shana: "Here you go."

Lavitz: "Thanks. It's much better now."

Dart: "It seems we completely lost those fools from Hellena."

Shana: "Dart? Tell me, about these last five years. It's okay, nevermind! We
       don't have time for this now."

Dart: "It was a journey for revenge. It was a journey to find the guy who
      deprived me of something precious, and kill him. I couldn't tell you
      Shana. That's why I left by myself."

Shana: "The Black Monster? I only know the name. Nobody would tell me more
       about it because they said I was still too young."

Lavitz: "What is the Black Monster? What are you talking about?"

Dart: "I have two homes. One is Seles, where I spend time with Shana. And the
      other is where I spent time with my parents, my first home, which was
      taken from me by the monster eighteen years ago. Neet."

[A flashback happens at Neet. It's in flames.]

Narrative: Dart's hometown -- 18 years ago.

Dart: "It was when I was five years old. Neet was assaulted by the Black
      Monster. We were lucky. Only three of could get out from the village."

[Dart escapes from the burning town with his mother and father, who stop at
the edge of town and look at the flames. The father prepares to go back in to
help the others.]

Dart: "But my father returned to the village."

[His mother hugs him and goes as well.]

Dart: "And my mother followed my father to the village to help everybody, but
      that's where the Black Monster was waiting. I was left alone, shivering
      and waited for dawn. The sun revealed a foreign landscape. It was a
      completely transformed Neet. And I found this."

[In the present, Dart is holding a shining stone.]

Dart: "What I found on the ground was only this. It's a memento, the only thing
      my father carried around all the time."

Shana: "Dart, it's okay. I understand."

Dart: "Shana, I'm sorry. I didn't tell you."

Shana: "It's okay, I knew you would tell me someday. Don't say anymore."

Lavitz: "So, you just came back from a journey to bring closure to the past."

Dart: "I'm still not there yet."

Lavitz: "You said Neet. It doesn't seem to be a village in this country."

Dart: "It was located farther north from here. I guess nobody even remembers
      its name anymore. Lavitz, tell me. What is going on in this country?"

Lavitz: "Currently, our Kingdom of Basil is at war with the Imperial Sandora.
        The war has spread all over Serdio."

Dart: "Why was the truce broken?"

Lavitz: "Because of the Dragon, the legendary monster added weight to Sandora
        and broke the balance ofpower. Then Emperor Doel started to be more
        aggressive."

Dart: "Dragon? No, no way! Such a thing can be used in war?"

Lavitz: "Do you know something about it!?"

Dart: "I was swooped down on by a Dragon before I entered Seles. I was
      overwhelmed. There was no way to escape from it. I was saved by a passing
      warrior. That's why I am still alive."

Lavitz: "The Dragon is advancing faster than I thought. We must do something or
        it'll be too late."

Dart: "You mean more casualties?"

Lavitz: "Yeah. It's a 'war'. Anyway, I have to go back to Indels Castle in
        Bale. There are so many things I have to report to King Albert. You
        know what, Dart? You guys should come along with me. Minister Noish
        might know something about the Black Monster."

Dart: "I see. They're a royalty with a long history. I might be able to find
      out something new."

Lavitz: "It's a done deal."

Shana: "Lavitz, don't take chances. You are not completely well."

Lavitz: "You'll make a good wife one day."

Shana: "Thanks!"

Dart: "Let's go.

[After looking for a way out, and seeing a log that can fall into the river,
they put two and two together and look for an axe to make the bridge. There's
one in the shack.]

Dart: "It is a pretty well-worn ax. I get it. We can knock down the tree on the
      cliff using this...."

[They go up to the tree on the cliff.]

Dart: "If we put this tree across the river...."

Lavitz: "Hmm.... It may work as a bridge. It could be worth trying."

[Dart starts chopping it down.]

Dart: "Whoa!!"

[They try to grab hold of the tree, but it falls off the cliff.]

Lavitz: "Shoot!!"

Dart: "Have to think about another way."

[They go back to the river.]

Dart: "What's that!?"

[The log they cut floats down the river and wedges horizontally.]

Dart: "We can cross with this!!"

[The party makes their way out of the Prairie and heads towards Bale. But
first things first...]

o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

[Inside the cave, the party finds a room with a bunch of stepping stones.]

Dart: "Stepping stones. Shana, be careful not to slip."

Shana: "Okay."

[Dart and Shana go ahead, and Lavitz pulls up the rear. Once the first two
are across, Lavitz slips and hangs onto a stone, ready to plunge into the
freezing water.]

Lavitz: "Aw!!"

Dart: "Lavitz!!"

[Dart goes to pull him up.]

Shana: "Dart!! Lavitz!!"

Lavitz: "Whoa!!"

[They all make it across.]

Dart: "Huff huff huff!"

Lavitz: "This is the second time you saved my life."

Dart: "Huff, huff, I was just around."

Lavitz: "Even though that was the case, I was lucky you were around, Dart.
        It'll be a long relationship we will have."

Dart: "Yup. That's right."

[Dart and Lavitz walk off.]

Shana: "Excuse me, you guys! Don't leave me like that!"

[Off the side of the path, the party can find glowing balls of light.]

Dart: "These are Rock Fireflies."

Shana: "Oh, you know a lot."

Dart: "Well, I used to be saved by these a lot."

Lavitz: "Me too. In particular, the ones close to a battlefield were helpful."

Shana: "Excuse me. Don't just change amongst yourselves and leave me out. Tell
       me what they are."

[The fireflies glow brighter.]

Shana: "Oh!! Oh boy!"

Lavitz: "The light from a Rock Firefly has a healing power."

Dart: "Well, Shana learened at least one thing."

Shana: "Well well. I know something you don't know too, Dart."

Dart: "Wh, what is that?"

Shana: "I'm not telling."

Lavitz: "Well, you have been away from each other for five years. It's natural
        to not know about each other. Wait, my mom and I aren't like that.
        Every time I go back to Bale, she welcomes me with the same smile. Wh,
        What? Did I say something wrong?"

Dart: "Let's get going. Your mother is waiting for you in Bale right?"

Lavitz: "Yeah!"

[The party gets in sight of the cave exit.]

Dart: "There is something there."

Lavitz: "Could it be the much talked about guardian of the Cave?"

Dart: "Shana, step back!"

Shana: "Don't worry about me. I can help!"

Lavitz: "It's coming!!"

[They defeat the snake-boss, Urobolus.]

Dart: "We did it!"

Lavitz: "Now, let's get on our way to Indels Castle."

Dart: "Shana."

[Lavitz and Dart start to walk ahead. Meanwhile, the dying Urobolus rears up
and lunges at Shana.]

Dart: "Shana!!!!"

[Dart and Lavitz can't reach her in time, but a brilliant light shines from
Shana and literally explodes the snake's sections apart.]

Shana: "Wh, what was...?"

Dart: "What on earth happened?"

Shana: "I, I don't know."

Dart: "..."

Lavitz: "Anyway, we are safe. We should think about how to get out of here.
        It'll be fine when we get to Bale. I think."

o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

[The three finally arrive in the bustling town of Bale, and head to the castle
throne room to report to King Albert.]

Lavitz: "I am the head of the First Knighthood, Lavitz Slambert. I am back from
        the field."

King Albert: "Oh, Lavitz! I was feeling uneasy because I had heard you were
             missing! Oh, please, make yourself comfortable, everyone!"

Lavitz: "Your Majesty, it's more than I deserve."

Noish: "Ha ha ha! It was true! His Majesty was so dismayed that he couldn't see
       to his affairs of state."

King Albert: "Oh Noish, please don't teast me. Lavitz is a friend from my
             childhood as well as a master of martial arts. Anyway, where have
             you been?"

Lavitz: "After my First Knighthood was wiped out, I was captured by Sandora and
        held against my will in Hellena Prison...."

King Albert: "What...in Hellena...."

Lavitz: "However, thanks to the act of this young man, I managed to break out.
        Let me introduce thse people to you. Dart and Shana. They are from
        Seles."

King Albert: "I thank you for saving Lavitz. I appreciate it from the bottom
             of my heart. In gratitude for this, tell meif you need anything."

Dart: "I have a favor to ask. Is it possible to take care of Shana in this
      castle?"

Shana: "What!?"

Dart: "It seems Imperial Sandora attacked Seles to take Shana away. So, they
      could go after Shana anytime,a nd when I think of it...."

Shana: "Is that the reason you brought me here?"

Dart: "Shana...."

Shana: "I can walk next to Dart. I have been working towards that. There is
       nothing we can do about the time we were apart, but I want to be with
       you forever!"

King Albert: "Unfortunately, you cannot leave her here. Imperial Sandora
             obtained the force called the Dragon, and went on the offensive.
             We are holding the battle line in Hoax, but if the dragon can fly
             at low altitudes and directly attack the castle, we cannot defend
             it even with the high ramparts. There is no place safe in Serdio
             now. Besides, you do know how she feels about you? Don't you?"

Dart: "Shana, it may be even more dangerous from now on."

Shana: "I don't mind as long as I can be with you, Dart."

Dart: "Well, I take back the request. But...one more thing. I would like to
      ask a question to Minister Noish."

Noish: "Ask me anything, son. My head is filled with all the legends and
       history of the Continent of Endiness."

Dart: "I was on a journey to pursue the Black Monster."

Noish: "The Black...Monster...."

Dart: "The monster that attacked Neet 18 years ago. The only thing I know is
      that he deprived me of my parents, and my hometown."

Noish: "Hmm! You were a victim of the devil!"

Dart: "I want to hear everything! Please tell me about it!"

Noish: "Hmm, there is hardly any information left. Everything that was related
       to him was reduced to ashes. The only thing I know is: the Black Monster
       is called the devil that disobeyed the great existence, and it is also
       known for devouring the god."

Dart: "Devouring the 'god'?"

Noish: "Yes, and surprisingly, it shows up in history beginning 11,000 years
       ago."

Albert: "11,000 years ago is the time the Dragon Campaign ended."

Noish: "You're exactly right, Your Majesty. Instead, I will tell you the story
       of the Dragon Campaign. As if they were gods, Winglies ruled over all
       living creatures, and used them as slaves. The enslaved suffered a 
       terrible domination and injustice. Their anger turned to a flame of
       fury; then, a gust of wind blew throughout the lands, spreading the
       flame to a blazing fire. The wind was Emperor Diaz. Seven incarnations
       Dragons served the emperor. Their bravery inspired people to take up
       arms. Thus began the Dragon Campaign. It was a harsh war. Both people
       and Winglies suffered countless injuries and fatalities. After a long
       period of suffering, it was the humans who aquired the future. The age
       of humans had begun."

Dart: "The Black Monster appeared after the Dragon Campaign."

[A man enters the throne room.]

Praetorian of Basil: "Excuse me sir! It's time for the war meeting!"

King Albert: "I see. Tell them we will come soon. Dart, Shana? This war will be
             a particularly harsh one for those who no longer have a home to
             return to. The castle is very quiet now. It is the best place to
             think about your future."

Shana: "But, this is our first time in a castle."

King Albert: "Well, there is a place with a great view next to this room. Go
             enjoy yourself."

Shana: "The view from the castle....I see! Please excuse me!"

[Shana goes out onto the balcony.]

Dart: "She is so hasty.... Please excuse me, too."

[Dart goes onto the balcony as the war meeting begins.]

Dart: "From here, we can see all of Basil. Might we even be able to see Seles?"

Shana: "Seles is over the mountain. Besides, we cannot see it anyway because we
       are so far.... I hope everybody is safe."

Dart: "I'm sure they are okay."

[Lavitz enters.]

Lavitz: "Yes, they are. According to the brief by my aide, most of the people
        in the village are safe."

Dart: "Really? I am relieved to hear that. But, it will take time ot rebuild
      the village."

Shana: "Still, good... I can meet everybody again."

Lavitz: "But, we have bad news. Sandora is now readying itself to attack us.
        They are planning to use the Dragon for the offensive on Hoax."

Dart: "A Dragon!? If they release that monster in the battle, it will be total
      genocide!"

Lavitz: "Our role, as the Knighthood, is to stop it. I am heading to Hoax now.
        Maintaining the battle line will determine the future of Basil."

Dart: "I have lived only for myself. I believed it was something I had to
      complete by myself even if I had to leave Shana and the people of the
      village behind. But, when I came back, look at this. I almost lost my
      hometown again! Lavitz. I am going to Hoax with you! I don't want to see
      anymore senseless bloodshed!"

Lavitz: "What about the Black Monster?"

Dart: "We have to end the war first!"

Shana: "Once Dart makes up his mind, he never changes it. Of course, I am going
       too. I cannot stand the war either. I can fight too!"

Lavitz: "You guys...."

Dart: "Everything is determined and now we have to prepare."

Lavitz: "Th, then, let's go to Bale now! There are item shops, weapon shops,
        and my home! Please meet my mother! She will be happy! Because she 
        hasn't had a guest for a while!"

[The party moseys on over to Lavitz' house.]

Lavitz: "Mom! I'm home!"

Lavitz's Mother: "Oh Lavitz!! It's Lavitz!! I was worried because I didn't hear
                 from you for a long time."

Lavitz: "Sandora's resistance was tougher than I thought. But don't worry. We
        defeated them!"

Lavitz's Mother: "Your late father would be proud to hear that."

Dart: "Lavitz, what about Hellena?"

Shana: (Don't mention that to her!)

Lavitz: (Sorry, but I don't want her to be worried.) "I don't know what he is
        talking about."

Lavitz's Mother: "Well, fine. I am already happy just having you come home,
                 but.... You brought a bride with you! My big baby!"

Lavitz: "Mom! She is not!"

Lavitz's Mother: "Oh, don't be shy. What's your name?"

Shana: "Sh, Shana."

Lavitz's Mother: "Shana, my son is a little awkward and stubborn. But he is
                 very sweet natured."

Dart: R1 --> He is not!
      R2 --> Good luck, Shana.

      R1: "He is not!"

          Lavitz: "He is right. She is Dart's sweetheart."

          Dart: "He, Hey!! When did I become Shana's...."

          Shana: "It's true. I...I am Dart's girlfriend."

          Dart: "What!?"

          Lavitz's Mother: "Oh! Please excuse me. Take good care of Shana."

          Dart: "Well...I, I don't know what to say." (What's going on!)

          Lavitz: (Once my mom gets an idea into her head, that's the end.
                  That's the only way we can manage her.)

      R2: "Good luck, Shana."

          Shana: "Do you mean it for real?"

          Lavitz: "D, Dart! Don't be so silly! Mom. Shana is Dart's sweetheart.

          Dart: "What!?"

          Lavitz's Mother: "Oh, please excuse me. But if you don't make it
                           clear, it hurts her."

          Dart: "I, I will say so from now on."

          Shana: "Does it mean...I am your girlfriend?"

          Dart: (I said it, because otherwise, Lavitz would be in trouble.)

Lavitz's Mother: "Lavitz, please find somebody like her so that I can hold a
                 grandchild in my arms. You are not a child anymore."

Lavitz: "Yeah, I know, I know."

Lavitz's Mother: "And, you'll stay here today, honey?"

Lavitz: "Well, I was commanded to defend Hoax. So, I have to leave as soon
        as...."

Lavitz's Mother: "Oh well, I understand. But you can have at least lunch can't
                 you? It'll be ready soon, honey."

Shana: "I'll give you a hand!"

Lavitz's Mother: "Oh, there's no need.... But, then again, maybe...."

Shana: "My pleasure!"

[Shana and Lavitz' mother go into the kitchen.]

Lavitz: "Well, what can we do till lunch? The lunch is not ready yet. What
        are we gonna do?"
        R1 --> Shall we help them?
        R2 --> We should practice with our swords.
        R3 --> Why don't we take a nap.
        R4 --> Show me around your house.

        R1: "Shall we help them?"

            Lavitz: "Can you cook?"

            Dart: "Of course! Otherwise, I couldn't travel alone for five
                  years."

            Lavitz: "Hmm! And what kind of dishes do you make?"

            Dart: "I can grill a thick piece of meat. It's the best!"

            Lavitz: "That's it? Let's leave the cooking to Shana and Mom."

            Dart: "You think so? But Shana was always a bad cook."

            Lavitz: "Better than you."

        R2: "We should practice with our swords."

            Lavitz: "Hey Hey Hey!!"

            Dart: "What's wrong?"

            Lavitz: "Are you gonna swing your sword around in my house!?"

            Dart: "What's wrong with that? You have such a big house."

            Lavitz: "It's not right!!"

            Dart: "Just kidding.... Tut!"
 
            Lavitz: "I heard that! What is that tut about!?"

            Dart: "It's all in your head."

        R3: "Why don't we take a nap?"

            Lavitz: "..."

            Dart: "What's wrong Lavitz?"

            Lavitz: "Dart, act like a man."

            Dart: "Lack of sleep is bad for our skin. Every young lady knows
                  that. Okay, I'll be more serious."

[R4 is the option that needs to be picked.]

Dart: "Show me around your house. This is the first time I've been in such a
      huge house."

Lavitz: "There is nothing interesting, but we can at least kill some time.
        Walk around wherever you like and I'll tell you about it."

[They enter the first upstairs room.]

Lavitz: "This is my room."

Dart: "There is a cut in the pillar. Were you swinging your sword or something?

Lavitz: "No. I was measuring my height."

Dart: "Lavitz was a kid once?"

Lavitz: "What do you mean?"

[They enter the second room.]

Lavitz: "It was my parents' room. It's been my mom's room since my father
        passed away in the war."

[They enter the library.]

Lavitz: "This is the library. There are many books on strategy. Are you
        interested in that, Dart?"

Dart: "It's my weak point."

[Lavitz starts pushing a roll-ladder.]

Dart: "What are you doing?"

Lavitz: "Come here."

[He climbs up.]

Lavitz: "I'll show you my treasure."

Dart: "'Treasure'?"

[Dart climbs out onto the roof.]

Lavitz: "Here is my treasure. Please take a look at it."

[Dart can see Indels Castle in the sunlight.]

Dart: "I see...it's a nice view of Indels Castle from here."

Lavitz: "This is what I saw everyday when I was young. I grew up thinking...
        'I'll be an admired knight just like my father and I'll protect this
        country!'"

Dart: "Your dream came true."

Lavitz: "Yes, but the reality was much harder than I imagined back then. I feel
        all the more strongly how great my father was. To protect this country
        I would tear the flesh from my body. It's the same passion you have
        towards Shana."

Dart: "I just...can't hold back."

Lavitz: "Because you know the importance of Shana's life, you can risk your
        own. You were not a foolish daredevil when you ventured into Hellena.
        Serdio is covered in war clouds now. You are the only one who can
        protect Shana. You know that, don't you?"

Dart: "Yeah."

Voice: "Dart! Lavitz! The food is ready!"

Lavitz: "Well, the princess needs us."

[Lavitz goes inside.]

Dart: "'Princess'.... She is like a baby sister to me."

[They eat lunch.]

Lavitz: "As always, your meals are delicious, Mom."

Lavitz's Mother: "It's such a nice thing to hear. But I'll be even happier if
                 you settle down with a bride soon."

Lavitz: "Um...Dart, Shana. We need to buy some things before we leave. Let's
        go!"

[As they go to leave town, a woman bumps into them.]

Martel: "Hey! Watch yourself!! Are you blind or what!?"

Dart: "What do you mean!? You're the one who bumped into me!"

Martel: "Don't make up excuses. Behave like a man!"

Shana: "Don't yell! It's true!"

Martel: "Can you be quiet? The baby's crying."

Shana: "Oh! Sorry. I was too loud. Oh, poor baby! She is scared, isn't she?

Martel: "Well we gotta go baby. There is no time to waste."

[Martel leaves.]

Dart: "What was that?"

Lavitz: "I don't know."

| Ch. 1 - 09 - Town of Hoax                                              HX01 |
o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

[West of Bale is Hoax, a giant fortress on the battlefront.]

Lavitz: "Let's go to the HQ first. Kaiser from the Eighth Knighthood must be
        waiting for us."

Shana: "Is this really a town? It looks like a fortress."

Dart: "The war changed it."

Lavitz: "That's true.... Nobody wanted it, but it couldn't be avoided. Let's
        focus on our defenses now."

[The party heads into the building under the hotel.]

Lavitz: "Kaiser! Long time no see!"

Kaiser: "Lavitz! Welcome! I see your Knighthood was..."

Lavitz: "Yeah, it was my mistake. But I won't let the dreams of my company
        end in death and be in vain. I'll end the war and unify Serdio! I
        will!"

Kaiser: "Hmm, we cannot stop until we make our dreams come true."

Lavitz: "Yeah! Now! I brought you two powerful helpers, Dart and Shana."

Kaiser: "Oh! You are the famous guy who rescued Lavitz! I am Kaiser, the head
        of the Eighth Knighthood! Nice to meet you!"

Dart: "Could you inform me of how we stand now?"

Kaiser: "We are still preparing for the raid of Sandoras. What I am concerned
        about is the information that they are using a Dragon."

Lavitz: "It's better to fortify here and see how they move, rather than
        attacking a Dragon that we don't know about."

Dart: "Then it'll be up to how fast we can spot the approach of the enemy."

Kaiser: "Great. Indeed you are right! Dart, Lavitz, why don't you be the guard
        at night? Having Shana too is not a good idea. Can you prepare the
        meals for the knights?"

Shana: "Preparing meals? Okay! Dart, you're going to love it!"

Dart: R1 --> Are you all right?
      R2 --> Yes I am looking forward to it.

      R1: "Are you all right?"

          Lavitz: "I wonder how she will do."
 
          Shana: "Wha, What?! Lavitz's mother gave me a nice compliment!"

          Dart: "But in the past...."

          Shana: "Fine! I am not gonna cook for Dart!"

          Dart: "I, I was just kidding!!"

          Kaiser: "Fight a lot that way! Fighting deepens the relationship in
                  many ways!"

      R2: "Yes I am looking forward to it."

          Lavitz: "I am a bit concerned...."

          Shana: "Wha, What?! Lavitz's mother gave me a compliment!"

          Lavitz: "I guess it may be edible...."

          Shana: "I don't like what Lavitz said."

          Lavitz: "I can enjoy and eat any food. Just make a lot."

          Shana: "I don't like what Dart said so much either."

          Kaiser: "I don't care about the taste. Edible is enough. Just salt
                  is enough for flavor!"

          Shana: "Even Mr. Kaiser too."

Lavitz: "Kaiser, why are you stirring things up even more?"

Kaiser: "I thought I was trying to relax her!! Now, that settles the matter. I
        want Dart and the others to go look around Hoax. The night guards have
        to know the place. After you look around, come back to me. Stay with
        me, Lavitz. I want to go over the battle conditions with you."

Dart: "Now, shall we?"

Lavitz: "Get along with each other."

Dart: "Yeah, yeah."

[Dart goes back to the war meeting room later on.]

Kaiser: "Did you see enough? I will take you to the guard position."

Dart: R1 --> Not yet.
      R2 --> We are fine now.

      R1: "Not yet."

          Kaiser: "I see. We haven't finished the strategic meeting yet."

          Lavitz: "Could you go see around a little more?"

[Pick R2:]

Dart: "We are fine now."

Kaiser: "We have just finished the strategic meeting. Now, I'll take you to
        your position. I want to ask both of you to guard the back gate. It's
        at the end of the stairs."

[They go to the stairs outside and find the on-duty guard.]

Dart: "I am here to replace you. You can trust us."

Soldier: "Yes, sir."

[The soldier leaves.]

Dart: "If Sandora attacks, it will be a night raid."

Lavitz: "We cannot relax till morning. Rest while it's still light."

[They both rest until it's nighttime.]

Dart: "It's strangely quiet tonight. If the Dragon comes near, we can easily
      tell."

Lavitz: "Why is that?"

Dart: "There are those in the forest. Nocturnal owls are hooting. It's the
      proof that nobody is in the forest. So, I'm gonna go grab something."

Lavitz: "Worrying about Shana?"

Dart: "It's not that."

Lavitz: "Bring me back something."

[Dart hits the stairs and the hooting stops.]

Dart: "The owls...."

Voice: "AHHHHHH!!"

[Flaming arrows fly into Hoax. Kaiser runs out.]

Kaiser: "Knighthood, advance!! Fortify the gate!! You take care of the
        casualties!!"

Soldier: "Y, Yes, sir!!"

Lavitz: "We'll counter them!!"

Dart: "Yeah!!"

[Imperial Sandora enemies start attacking, but Dart and Lavitz unmake them.
On top of the wall--]

Dart: '!!"

[--an elite soldier appears, disposing of the wall guard.]

Sandora Elite: "Is this the battle HQ for the front lines of Basil!? What a
               weak setup!"

Dart: "I will guard the top!"

Lavitz: "Gotcha! Trust me to handle here!

Sandora Elite: "What guts you have, coming alone like that!!"

[Lavitz kills the enemy and runs up the stairs to Dart.]

Lavitz: "I am here!! I got those guys at the bottom!!"

Sandora Elite: "Humph! One or two doesn't make any difference."

Dart: "Big talkers are usually weak."

[They kill the Sandora Elite. Below, a soldier is getting beaten up by a 
ridiculously huge attacker.]

Soldier: "AAGGHH!!"

Lavitz: "What is that giant!?"

Knight of Basil: "It's Gi, Giganto!!"

Dart: "Giganto?"

[They run down to face it.]

Dart: "Lavitz!!"

Lavitz: "I heard about it, but he is real!! The ones who fought so far were
        no match for him!!"

Dart: "Well he is still not a Dragon! Go!!"

[They defeat Kongol, but Dart gets knocked back when he tries to deal the
coup de grace. The woman who saved him at the very beginning of the game
flies in on odd wings, and points her sword at Dart.]

Woman: "Wake up! Dragoon of the Red-Eye Dragon!"

Dart: "!?"

[A red light fills Dart.]

Dart: "Ahhhh!?"

[The spirit of the Red-Eye Dragon swoops around and beats Kongol down. Dart
looks at himself and is now in similarly-shaped armor as the woman's, only
red and fiery.]

Dart: "What on earth is...."

Soldier of Imperial Sandora: "The, these are not Humans!!"

[The remaining soldier flees.]

Lavitz: "Dart, you.... What happened to you!?"

Dart: "I don't know.... I don't know what happened to me!?"

[The woman walks over.]

Rose: "The Knight of the Dragon, the Dragoon was born."

Kongol: "UGH...."

Rose: "I am surprised you didn't die."

Kongol: "Giganto don't die! Giganto will pay you back!!"

[Kongol retreats, also. Shana runs out.]

Shana: "Dart!!"

Dart: "You are safe."

[Dart's fiery-red armor fades away.]

Shana: "What happened!?"

Dart: "Seeing Shana's face.... Makes me relieved...."

[He collapses.]

Shana: "Dart!!"

Lavitz: "Are you alright!?"

[In his semi-conscious state, Dart can hear his comrades talking.]

Shana: "What are you to Dart? What did you do to him?

Rose: "I was only...."

Lavitz: "Cut it out! Both of you!!"

[Dart wakes up on a bed.]

Rose: "I should be thanked, so why do I have to be yelled at?"

Dart: "Ah...."

Lavitz: "Have you come to?"

Dart: "I, I was...."

Shana: "I'm glad you woke up...."

Dart: "You, you are...."

Rose: "Rose. Nice to see you again."

Shana: "Do you know Dart?"

Rose: "I told you. I just saved his life. Well...not only once."

Shana: "I want to hear it from Dart's own mouth."

Lavitz: "You explain. I don't understand."

Dart: R1 --> She saved my life.
      R2 --> She is an important person to me.

      R1: "She saved my life. Thanks to Rose, I was able to make it to Seles."

      R2: "She is an important person to me."

          Rose: "Are you seducing me?"

          Dart: "No, no way! I couldn't make it even to Seles without you
                Rose."

Shana: "Then, the person who saved you from the Dragon was...."

Dart: "Yeah. It's her. Talking about being saved, I didn't even thank
                you yet."

Rose: "I don't need any thanks. I wanted to do it."

Dart: "I see. But why are you here? It is too fishy to be a coincidence."

Rose: "I followed you because I was fascinated by this artifact that you
      own...the Dragoon Spirit of the Red-Eye Dragon."

Dart: "This.... This light is!?"

Rose: "You 'deserve' to rule Dragons. This light shows the true evidence. From
      the time the Dragoon Spirit starts to shine, you have to accept your
      fate as a Dragoon. Just like me."

Dart: "I didn't know there was such power concealed in my father's memento."

Shana: "You saved him because you knew it from the beginning."

Rose: "I didn't know it. It was a test to see if he could be a Dragoon. If you
      couldn't, you would be dead now."

Lavitz: "Why do you know about such things? You know too much about things
        nobody could know."

Rose: "It's better than ignorance, isn't it?"

Lavitz: "That's true, but yours is not mere knowledge. It's a story in a legend
        that has been lost. I heard about it from Minister Noish before. The
        people who led Humans to victory in the Dragon Campaign, they were the
        Dragoons."

Dart: "But was that the only reason you protected me? Just because I have a
      Dragoon Spirit?"

Rose: "Honestly, I was surprised myself, but now I know why. You guys look like
      my dear old friends. They lived in the middle of a turbulent generation,
      yet they were strong enough to grab their own fate. They knew the way to
      go, the things to do, the enemy to defeat and the people to protect. I
      feel the same about you guys, so, I couldn't help doing that. Now you
      understand me?"

Dart: "Can I ask you one thing? What are they doing now?"

Rose: "Everybody's gone. It's all in the past."

Shana: "I am sorry. I think I was wrong about you, Rose."

Rose: "It's okay. I am used to being hated."

Voice: "Is the head of the Knighthood, Sir Kaiser, in here!? The, The Seventh
       Fort is under strong attack by Sandoras!!"

Lavitz: "What!?"

[Outside, they find a soldier.]

Knight of Basil: "The Seventh Fort in the Marshland is under the fierce attack
                 of the Dragon! Due to that, the Tenth and Thirteenth
                 Knighthoods are almost overwhelmed! Survivors are still
                 responding!"

Lavitz: "Where did it come from!?"

Knight of Basil: "From the forest over the Volcano Villude! It seems there is
                 a nest there for the Dragon!!"

[Kaiser appears.]

Kaiser: "Gigantos and Dragons. It's not a fight between Humans. If we don't
        defeat the Dragon, we don't have a future!"

Lavitz: "Summon the rest of the knights! We will assault the Dragon's Nest!"

Rose: "The Knighthood has the advantage of numbers, but they are only human.
      Humans cannot defeat a Dragon. If it continues, Basil will be
      annihilated."

Lavitz: "We don't know until we try!"

Rose: "Do you think a wasted death is honorable or something? But Dragoons can
      defeat him.... Dart. You should understand this. We have a different
      existence. We are beyond Humans."

Lavitz: "That's right...Dragoon!! Dragoons, which were said to have governed
        the Dragons, can fight against the Dragon!!"

Dart: R1 --> Maybe, I can do it now.
      R2 --> I still don't know...

      R1: "Maybe, I can do it now. I felt, the power of the Dragon in me. I'll
          do it! I believe in this power!"

      R2: "I still don't know.... I still don't know what it is to be a
          Dragoon."

          Rose: "You feel the power, right? That is the power of the Dragon
                born in you."

          Dart: "This is...I feel it! It's a hot...power in me! I'll do it! I
                believe in this power!"

Kaiser: "It makes me feel relieved.... There is nobody left who can fight in
        the Eighth Knighthood. Dart, Rose...it seems you are the only people
        we can count on..."

Lavitz: "Kaiser!! Yo, you...your wound is open!!"

Kaiser: "I am all right. Dart, Rose. The Kingdom of Basil is finished unless we
        defeat the Dragon. So...?"

Dart: "You can trust me. I will fight for you, too."

Rose: "I'll go too. ... ... It doesn't seem to be enough if it is only Dart and
      the others."

Kaiser: "Shana.... You...should stay."

Shana: "No, I am going! I can help the other people too!"

[A roaring sound can be heard in the distance.]

Rose: "The Green Tusked Dragon, Feyrbrand...."

Dart: "It brings back the fear I felt before."

Rose: "The real fear has not even begun yet."

[Later, Dart goes to leave and overhears two knights talking above him.]

Knight A: "It was super!!"

Knight B: "What about it?"

Knight A: "That Dart fella, yesterday he wore unique armor and defeated
          Kongol!!"

Knight B: "With Dart, Imperial Sandora is not even a match as our enemy!!"

Knight A: "Dart is the messiah of the Kingdom of Basil!"

Rose: "Messiah, huh. You cannot be called a real Dragoon getting stunned like
      that, by bursting with the power."

Dart: R1 --> ...
      R2 --> Then, tell me, Rose.

      R1: "..."

          Rose: "I'll be here for a while. Go prepare for the departure."

      R2: "Then, tell me, Rose. How should I fight as a Dragoon."
 
          Rose: "Well, let's begin."

          [They start a practice fight.]

          Rose: "Let's begin. What would you like to know about Dragoons?"

          Dart: R3 --> 'Dragoon Transformations.'
                R4 --> 'Dragoon Additions.'
                R5 --> 'Dragoon Magic.'
                R6 --> 'Not much.'

      R3 (Rose): "Dragoon Transformations need spiritual power, Spirit Points
                 (SP). You can accumulate SP by attacking enemies. Let's try.
                 Fight with me. Come on! Yes, keep it up. You accumulated SP.
                 When your SP is full, a transformation command appears. 
                 Selecting that allows you become a Dragoon. Now, transform
                 yourself. Do you understand how to transform?" 
                 ['I want to try it again' / 'Yes, I got it.'] "For quicker
                 transformations, change the setting on the system screen.
                 Select 'config', highly 'Morph', then select 'Short'. That's
                 all."

      R4 (Rose): "First, transform yourself into a Dragoon. You emit power all
                 at once with Dragoon Additions. Charge up your power. Press
                 the x button when the Spirit Meter light reaches the top. When
                 successful, the light continues to revolve & the power is
                 charged accordingly. Now, try. It's okay, one more press. How
                 was it? You got enough?" ['Please let me try again.' / 'Yes.
                 It's enough.']

      R5 (Rose): "First, transform yourself to a Dragoon. There are two
                 commands after a transformation, a Dragoon addition & a
                 Dragoon spell. You need a certain MP to use a Dragoon spell.
                 The spells you can use are highlighted. There is only one now.
                 Select the spell & then the target. Then you can cast the
                 spell. Now. Let's try. Cast a spell on me. Did you get enough
                 exercise?" ['Please let me try again.' / 'I'm fine now.']

      R6 (Rose): "One more thing. Getting SP by attacking allows your Dragoon
                 Level to increase and you'll have more spell choices. In the
                 end, you can only rely on your own sword. This is what I can
                 teach. After that, it's up to you. I'll be here for a while.
                 Go prepare for the departure."

[Dart goes to leave.]

Rose: "Once we leave the town, I will consider you as a mature Dragoon. I won't
      teach you how to fight anymore."

Dart: R1 --> I still don't have confidence....
      R2 --> Okay, I'll be all right.

      R1: "I still don't have confidence...."

          Rose: "I see.... I'll be here for a while. Go prepare for the 
                departure."

      R2: "Okay, I'll be all right."

[The party leaves town and heads for the Marsh.]

o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

[The party arrives at the Basil fort and finds it still under seige by the
Imperial Sandora.]

Dart: "Oh my god!! !!"

[A soldier comes up behind Dart.]

Soldier of Imperial Sandora: "Are you from Basil!?"

Dart: R1 --> I won't let you have your way!
      R2 --> We should retreat at once.

      R1: [The fight begins.]
      R2 (Soldier of Imperial Sandora): "!?"

         [Dart flees.]

[Dart defeats the soldier and another comes over.]

Soldier of Imperial Sandora [2]: "You bastard!!"

Dart: R1 --> Get out of my way!
      R2 --> Let's reposition ourselves.

[Dart defeats the soldier.]

Soldier of Imperial Sandora [3]: "I won't let you leave alive!!"

Dart: R1 --> Is that so!?
      R2 --> We have to retreat.

[Dart defeats the third soldier.]

Soldier of Imperial Sandora [4]: "I'll chop you up!!"

Dart: R1 --> Make my day!
      R2 --> Doesn't look good.

[Dart kills the fourth soldier.]

Soldier of Imperial Sandora [5]: "I will stop them by myself!!"

Dart: R1 --> I won't let them!
      R2 --> We can't.

[Dart kills the fifth soldier, and a Commander appears.]

Commander: "I won't let you go any further!!"

Dart: R1 --> Is that all?
      R2 --> No more?

[Dart kills the Commander.]

Dart: "I wonder if inside the fortress is safe?"

[The inside is silent -- all dead or dying from poisonous mists.]

Dart: "Oh my god...."

[They find a Basil knight writhing on the floor.]

Lavitz: "Hang on! We beat the Sandoras!"

Head of 10th Knighthood: "Ah, Ahh, Sir Lavitz. Watch out...for the Dragon's...
                         breath. This...is...." [Obtain: Wargod's Amulet]

[He dies.]

Lavitz: "We will wreak your revenge upon them...."

[Now that the fate of the Tenth Knighthood is known, the party heads off to
Volcano Villude, the buffer between the Dragon's Nest. As they walk...]

Shana: "Yeek!"

Dart: "What's wrong, Shana?"

Shana: "I'm f, fine. My foot was stuck in the mud, that's all. See. Oh no!"

Dart: "Did you twist your ankle?"

Shana: "It's nothing...."

Dart: "You can't stand up, can you? Come on, I'll give you a piggy back ride."

Shana: "But, it's embarrassing."

Dart: "What are you talking about? I used to give you piggy back rides when you
      were little, remember?"

Shana: "Uh huh, thanks!"

[She gets on his back.]

Shana: "I'm such trouble aren't I?"

Dart: "I don't think so."

Shana: "I guess...I shouldn't stayed in Hoax?"

Dart: "Are you serious?"

Shana: "No, it's not so...I guess I had a bit of a weak moment.... You know
       what, I have more confidence now. I can fight to help everybody. I'm not
       a drag on others, but I still cannot fight like Rose."

Dart: "Shana, you have something only you can do, right? You don't need to
      pretend to be strong. Besides, you can rely on me more. Like in the old
      days..."

Lavitz: "Dart! Is Shana all right!?"

Shana: "I'm okay now!"

[Shana gets off.]

Shana: "The pain is gone. Let's go everybody!"

[Up next is...]

o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

[In the swelter of the volcano, the ground shakes as the part passes through.]

Dart: "What's that!?"

Lavitz: "Is that an eruption of the volcano!?"

Rose: "No, it's not. That is...Fire Bird. It's bad timing, showing up now. We
      still have to deal with the Dragon."

Dart: "Can we just let it go?"

Rose: "It's up to him."

[The Fire Bird by the lava squawks at Dart.]

Dart: "He saw us! Run!!"

[They run down the path a ways.]

Shana: "It seems we lost him."

Dart: "Good. Let's move on."

[As they pass through a river of lava, Shana kneels on the ground.]

Shana: "!? What...is this feeling? It's...calling me!?"

[She runs off.]

Dart: "Shana! Where are you going!?"

[Dart follows her to a room with a giant, creepy-looking statue halfway
submerged in the lava.]

Dart: "You were 'being called' by this?"

Shana: "I don't know. But when I came here, I didn't hear the voice anymore."

Dart: "Is that alive?"

Lavitz: "Looks like a stone statue."

Shana: "Don't go near it! I feel...something's wrong."

Rose: "Listen to Shana. This Virage is still alive."

Dart: "Virage...?"

Rose: "You don't know about it? Okay, I'll explain it to you. You know about
      the Dragon Campaign, right? The Winglies were outnumbered, so they used
      this creature called Virage as their trump card in the war. Just as
      Humans used Dragons, Winglies used Virage."

Shana: "I thought the Dragon Campaign was over 11,000 years ago. How can this
       still be alive?"

[Part of the "statue"'s hand moves.]

Dart: "!!"

Rose: "I would say, it's due to the hatred of Humans, or a vendetta against us
      Dragoons. We gotta settle this."

Dart: "Or let's run!!"

[The Virage takes the initiative, so running is impossible. They defeat it
anyhow, and Dart pushes it into the lava to die. Lavitz is near the edge and
almost gets a faceful of the stuff.]

Lavitz: "Whoa! It's dangerous here! Let's go back!"

Dart: "Come on! Shana. Are you alright!?"

[Rose looks at the sinking Virage.]

Dart: "Rose! Rose! Run!"

[She walks away from the edge and they continue hear a voice outside.]

???: "Heeey! Is anybody there?"

Dart: "Did you hear something?"

???: "Heeey! Heeelp!"

Shana: "Look, over there!!"

[A man's clothing is caught on a branch by the cliff.]

Dart: "It's a man!"

???: "Help me!! My foot slipped and I fell!!"

Dart: "We got you!"

[Dart pulls him up.]

???: "Phew! Thanks! Really!! I didn't think I would make it!!"

Shana: "It was really *huff huff* good."

???: "Yeah, thanks! I can't thank you enough, but please at least take this!"
     
Shana: "Oh don't! We can't accept such an expensive item."

???: "Yes, you have to! You folks saved my life! I'll feel bad if you folks
     don't take it!"

Dart: "Take it. Once decided, it's hard to take it back. It's a man thing."

Shana: "Well, thank you." [Obtain: Sapphire Pin]

Dabas: "I'm Dabas of Lohan. I was told I could find a 'Burning Gem' around here
       so I came, and look what happened to me! By the way, I am an antique
       dealer. If you happen to be in Lohan, why don't ya drop by. Later!"

[Dabas leaves.]

Shana: "He is funny."

[The party soons runs into the Fire Bird.]

Dart: "!!"

Lavitz: "Fire Bird!"

Dart: "Shana! Can we go to the exit!?"

Shana: "No! It's in flames!"

Dart: "I guess we gotta fight!"

[The kill Fire Bird.]

Dart: "*Huff Huff* It was a hot fight...."

[It's only a skip and a jump to the Nest of Dragon from there.]

o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o
| Ch. 1 - 12 - Nest of Dragon                                            NSD1 |
o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

[The nest is a murky place in the forest. Spores of poison float all around.]

Rose: "Guys? Don't you feel something? This forest is contaminated by the
      Dragon's poison."

Lavitz: "I see. That's why the Sandoras don't have a defense in this forest. A
        normal person cannot be exposed to this 'poison' for a lon gtime. It's
        a natural defense."

Shana: "Oh my?"

Dart: "What's wrong!?"

Shana: "I felt a little bit dizzy, that's all."

Lavitz: "I guess it is hard for a woman."

Rose: "Oh, I am a woman too."

Lavitz: "You are special."

Rose: "'Special', huh? Fine. I don't capitalize on a woman's frailty anyway."

Shana: "I don't mean to do...oh no. I'm okay. See? Rose is fine too. But, I...
       I'm sorry. I need to go rest a little."

[Shana walks off.]

Dart: "Shana!"

[Shana sits down by a warped tree.]

Dart: "Are you all right?"

Shana: "Uh huh. Don't worry. I don't feel sick anymore. Besides, I think I got
       used to the air in this place."

Dart: "Then, can you go with us?"

Shana: "Sure. If I fall down here, there would be no meaning to me coming with
       you."

Lavitz: "Indeed, we can say the war is in our hands, because the Kaisers cannot
        make a move."

Dart: "Shana.... Please don't leave us like that. We don't know what awaits us.

Shana: "Sorry."

Dart: "Now, let's move on."

[Dart and Shana walk off.]

Rose: "They are playing brother and sister."

Lavitz: "Yup, they are always like that."

[The party walks over a web-covered hole and--]

Dart: "!? Wow!"

[--falls through, of course. At the bottom, they wait for Shana to come to.]

Dart: "Good, you've come around."

Shana: "Yes. I think...I'm fine."

Dart: "Where are we?"

Rose: "In the nest of the dragon."

Dart: "Well, at least we don't need to look for Feyrbrand anymore."

Rose: "What confidence you have. Is that because you are a Dragoon?"

Dart: "I guess."

Shana: "Guys, look at this. There is still pure water left in this forest. At
       least the entire forest is not spoiled."

Dart: "Let's go. If we defeat the monster, the forest will be saved."

[A knight is at the nest's end, standing by the upward climb to the exit.]

Lavitz: "Who is this!?"

????: "Is that you, Lavitz?! It's so ironic to find you venturing here!!"

Lavitz: "You are...Greham!!"

Dart: "Do you know him?"

Lavitz: "I will never forget him!! He used to be the head of the Second
        Knighthood of Basil...Greham! The man who used to be my father's best
        man!!"

Greham: "Welcome, Lavitz. You have become a knight fulfilling the wishes of
        your late father, Servi."

Lavitz: "Don't you ever mention my father's name!"

Greham: "Are you still carrying that grudge after more than a dozen years for
        my betrayal of your father!?"

Lavitz: "That's not all!! You betrayed King Albert!! You betrayed every single
        person I know!!"

Greham: "Is that the wrath of a patriotic knight, or a man full of vengeance?"

Lavitz: "Both!! Greham!! I now get to avenge my father, who trusted you and
        died in vain!"

Greham: "'Get revenge'...huh? Try! See if you can truly best me and my newly
        obtained power!"

[He glows with a green Dragoon Spirit.]

Greham: "Emerge!! The power of the Dragon!!"

Lavitz: "You...you are a Dragoon!?"

Rose: "It shouldn't be a surprise. Only the Dragoons can manipulate Dragons.
      Behind the Dragon, there should be...."

[Feyrbrand appears.]

Greham: "This is the power I obtained!!"

Rose: "Obtaining that power is not an easy matter. You, where did you get the
      Dragoon Spirit?"

Greham: "I'm amazed there is someone in Basil who knows about this. Fine. You
        too will know before you die. His Majesty Doel got all his power and
        intelligence from Emperor Diaz."

Rose: "Is this some kind of dream? Emperor Diaz died 11,000 yars ago. With the
      name of the Holy Imperial Gloriano."

Greham: "If this is a dream, how can you explain what you are about to see?
        Come! I will give you a chance to avenge your father! If you have the
        courage to fight against the legendary Dragoon!"

[They defeat Greham and Feyrbrand; the former lies dying.]

Greham: "Ug..... I got a deep gash. You have Servi's strength. My efforts were
        to no avail. I even used betrayal to obtain this power...."

Lavitz: "I still...don't understand. Why did you betray my father? You were not
        like this."

Greham: "Nobody could be stronger than your father. That was the only thing I
        could never conquer. I had...admiration for him, as a mate...and as a
        friend. But time goes by and it turned into this feeling.... This fear,
        from realizing the limits of your ability.... This fear...that goes
        nowhere. The only thing you can do is curse yourself for weakness...."

Lavitz: "But you couldn't overcome your 'fear' by defecting to Doel, you needed
        to overcome my father!"

Greham: "There was...an alternative. If only I could obtain a new power, I
        could be equal to, or surpass him.... That was...the Dragoon Spirit I
        got from His Majesty Doel. Lavitz...live strong. Now...I can go...to be
        with Servi...."

[The Dragoon Spirit shines and Greham disappears.]

Rose: "He is lucky to be dead now. Greed for power eventually conquers you.
      Unleashed power generates only sorrow. He should've known that. He was
      lucky to die now and avoid even more sorrow."

[The Dragoon Spirit appears in front of Lavitz.]

Lavitz: "Wha...what is this!?"

Rose: [Such a coincidence...! It can't be...or is this fate!?]

Dart: "Lavitz, maybe you too are...."

Rose: "Dart is right, the Dragoon Spirit of the Jade Dragoon recognized you as
      the next master."

Lavitz: "I am...a Dragoon? I deserve to rule Dragons?"

Rose: "Not only do you 'deserve,' but you have an obligation to accept your
      fate as a Dragoon, don't you?"

Lavitz: "It's what Greham left for me. I understand. I accept it! The fate of
        a Dragoon! I will use this power for justice! Like Dart and Rose!"

Rose: [Use for justice? Huh!]

[Lavitz acquires the Dragoon Spirit of the Jade Dragon.]

Shana: "Good for you, Lavitz. Ah...."

Dart: "Shana!?"

Shana: "I can't...breathe."

Dart: "Too much poison!?"

Lavitz: "We cannot make it over Villude carrying Shana. Then, we have to go to
        Lohan!"

Dart: "Lohan.... That commercial town!?"

Lavitz: "Yes, that's it. I heard there is a great doctor there!"

Dart: "Hurry!"

o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

[Dart walks into Lohan, carrying Shana.]

Dart: "What a crowd, and we are in the middle of a war."

Shana: "It's true... If I were fine, it would be...fun..."

Dart: "You'll get well soon!"

[Dart takes her to the doctor's house.]

Sanator: "I couldn't believe it was Dragon's poison until I saw it with my own
         eyes. I have never seen such symptoms. There is nothing wrong with the
         body...at least that's how it seems. But her consciousness has closed
         inward after she arrived here. It seems the mind is poisoned, not the
         body. I don't think the clinic can help her. I'm sorry, but in this
         condition, it could be a week, if she is lucky."

Dart: "Can't you do something!?"

Sanator: "I'll do everything I can. What was a cute girl doing with a legendary
         monster?"

Lavitz: "She fought against it to save the country! Think hard! Is there 
        anytyhing you can do!?"

Sanator: "Hold on. If we can get some Dragoni Plant, she may survive."

Dart: "Really!?"

Sanator: "I read it in a secret heirloom book. The problem is, as with Dragons,
         Dragoni Plant exists only in legend. I cannot say for sure if it 
         really exists."

Dart: "Even so.... We cannot wait like this, doing nothing! Let's go look for
      Dragoni Plant on our own! We at least might be able to find something in
      this town!"

Lavitz: "Lohan is a commercial town where everybody is welcome. There should be
        some information here!"

Sanator: "Although it is temporary, I will try to stanch the poisoning. I am 
         not called the best doctor in Serdio for nothing! I will rise to the
         occasion!"

[The party stumbles upon Dabas' antique shop.]

Dabas: "Welcome...? Hey!!"

Dart: "Dabas!"

Lavitz: "It's the goofy merchant from the other day!"

Dabas: "I'm glad you folks are here! Thanks for Villude, really! Now I can run
       my business! So, what do you want!? You can find anything in Dabas'
       Antiques.

Dart: "Do you carry herbs too?"

Dabas: "You got it! I have everything! From extremely rare medicine to secret
       magical medicine!"

Dart: "Have you heard of the Dragoni Plant? I heard it is a very rare herb."

Dabas: "Oh! The Dragoni Plant!"

Dart: "You have it!?"

Dabas: "No."

Dart: "Dabas!!"

Dabas: "Oh no don't get mad! I was just kidding! But, let me think harder, I
       remember hearing about it somewhere. Hold on a sec. Well, in this secret
       notebook.... Yes! It's in here! It says, North of the poisoned forest. 
       Past the troublesome plant. Observed Dragoni Plant in back of the
       Shrine!"

Lavitz: "It reminds me.... I saw a strange plant in the back of the forest when
        Shana took a rest."

Rose: "Oh, the one that became a monster because of the Dragon's poison.... But
      you cannot get past it unless you purify it with something."

Lavitz: "How about the Spring Water underground!? That might help the plant."

Dart: "That's it! Thanks Dabas!"

[They run out.]

Dabas: "Hey!? What about shopping!? That's all!?"

[They start to leave.]

Street Vendor: "Hey you! Hey classy brother! I have something you'll like!"

Dart: "That reminds me, we need something to carry the Spring Water. Let's
      have a look."

Street Vendor: "That's my man! You have a sharp eye! I guarantee they are good
               buys!"

Dart: "I want a bottle to put water in. Do you have one?"

Street Vendor: "Sure sure! This one's durable and the best quality you can get!

Dart: "How much?"

Street Vendor: "*Grin* ...Surprise! It's a super bargain! How about
              10000000000G!"

Lavitz: "Let's look somewhere else."

Street Vendor: "Hey, wait a minute! I was just kidding! Don't take me so
               seriously."

Dart: "How much is the real price then?"

Street Vendor: "Yeah! It's about 3000G! Why don't ya buy it?"

Dart: R1 --> I'll take it.
      R2 --> It's, too expensive!

      R1: "I'll take it."

          Street Vendor: "Yup! Thanks!" [Obtain: Water Bottle]

          Lavitz: "Now we are ready."

          [They run off.]

          Street Vendor: "Hee hee, Thanks."

      R2: "T, too expensive!"

          Street Vendor: "Hm.... Well, I'll give you a discount. How about
                         2200G! 2200G!"
                         
          Dart: R3 --> I'll take it.
                R4 --> It's still too much.

      R3: [Same as R1]

      R4: "It's still too much."

          Street Vendor: "I'll go down to 1000G!"
          
          Dart: R5 --> "I'll take it."
                R6 --> "Can't you do better than that?"

      R5: [Same as R1]

      R6: "Can't you do better than that?"

          Street Vendor: "500G!"

          Dart: R7 --> I'll take it.
                R8 --> Drop it once more!

      R7: [Same as R1]

      R8: "Drop it once more!"

          Street Vendor: "Darn! I'm giving it away. How about 100G!"

          Dart: R9 --> I'll take it.
               R10 --> ...

      R9: [Same as R1]

     R10: "..."

          Street Vendor: "Hee...hee...hee hee hee hee! I can't win! Take it!
                         It's free!"

          Dart: "Well.... If you insist. I'll take it. Thanks!" [Obtain: Water
                Bottle]

[The party leaves for the Nest of Dragon, for the last time, hopefully.]

[The party goes back to the freshwater spring.]

Dart: "Let's hope for the best with this water."

Lavitz: "Hmmm, according to Dabas, we have to get rid of that plant in order 
        to get to the shrine with Dragoni Plants." [Obtain: Life Water]

Dart: "Come on, let's go."

[They find the plant blocking the path and kill it.]

Dart: "The plant is wilting. We can go now!"

o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

[The party enters the shrine, and Rose looks up above the door.]

Rose: "That is...."

Dart: "What's up? A scuplture of a dragon?"

Lavitz: "Dragon.... I hope nothing bad will happen."

Rose: "Take out your Dragoon Spirits."

[The Spirits all shine.]

Dart: "They are resonating together."

Lavitz: "It means there is a Dragoon in there!?"

Rose: "Go see it with your own eyes."

Dart: "Let's move on."

[Outdoors, the party finds an odd mechanism.]

Dart: "What is this...?"

Lavitz: "There are three rotary plates, all with numbers from one to five. It
        seems like a kind of apparatus with a numerical lock. You try, Dart."

Dart: "The first number is.... [input] The second number is.... [input] The
      third number is..."

[Nothing happens.]

Dart: "I guess it's wrong."

Lavitz: "I guess it doesn't work unless we use the correct numbers."

[Ahead, a treasure-chest trap drops them into a mine cart and they end up back
at the beginning, in the water.]

Dart: "Wh, what was that?"

[Using the numbers he saw on the cart ride, Dart inputs the numbers into the
rotary dials, opening a secret entrance. They head towards the back of the
shrine when someone throws knives at them; they dodge.]

Dart: "!?"
Lavitz: "!?"

[A man in theatrical getup jumps down.]

Drake: "It's amazing you made it through the traps! But your luck is over! 'Cuz
       I won't let you go further! Come on! Draw your sword!"

Dart: "Wait! We are just here to look for the Dragoni Plant! We don't want to
      fight!"

Drake: "You want me to believe that!? You must be after the treasure, aren't
       ya!?"

Dart: "That's not it!"

Rose: "It's quicker to beat him."

Drake: "You thieves!! Now you reveal your true selves!! Prepare yourselves!!"

[The party defeats Drake.]

Drake: "I have to protect Shirley or...."

[A ghost appears.]

Shirley: "Drake...it's okay now. People with Dragoon Spirits. Why are you
         disturbing my quiet moment?"

Lavitz: "What are you!?"

Dart: "We are not here for that! We are here to save our friend's life!"

Shirley: "Life of your friend?"

Rose: "Do you remember me?"

Shirley: "You are.... Rose, aren't you...? Oh...I understand. You have been on
         your sad journey since then."

Rose: "You too, Shirley."

Dart: "Won't you spare me some Dragoni Plant!? Shana is suffering from
      Dragon's poison!"

Shirley: "Dragon? Oh, they are still clinging to life. ...Unfortunately, I
         don't have any Dragoni plant."

Dart: "Then, what about Shana?"

Shirley: "There is one way to save her."

Dart: "I'll try anything! Just tell me!"

[Shirley shines with a white Dragoon Spirit.]

Dart: "Dragoon Spirit!?"

Shirley: "A Dragon's poison can be removed with the Dragoon Spirit of a White
         Silver Dragon, which is filled with healing magic. Now, I will
         challenge you to see if you deserve this Dragoon Spirit. Shall we
         begin? Try to overcome me. If you cannot do it, the girl's fate is to
         die."

[The battle with Shirley begins.]

Shirley: "Dart, Lavitz. Why do you fight?"
         R1 --> To protect those we love.
         R2 --> For pride and honor.

         R1: "Dart. Bare your heart to me."

             [She changes into Shana.]

             Shirley: "Dart, I have been waiting. Why did you leave without
                      saying a word?"
                      R3 --> It's none of your business.
                      R4 --> To pursue the Black Monster.

         R2: "Lavitz, show me what you believe." [Lavitz section starts.]

         R3: "It's awful! Am I that much less important to you?"
            
             [She changes back into Shirley.]

             Shirley: "Dart, I saw your bear heart. However, I cannot give you
                      my spirit. You lost control. Think it over again."

         R4: "The Black Monster!? Dart, what are you going to do after you find
             the Black Monster?"
             R5 --> Of course, get revenge!
             R6 --> I don't know yet.

         R5: "Revenge!? Please, forget about revenge and be with me. The Black
             Monster or me, Dart?"
             R7 --> Shana.
             R8 --> Black Monster.

         R6: "I knew it. You were always like that Dart. You always rush off
             without thinking about others or the consequences. You won't be
             able to make it like that."

             [She changes back into Shirley.]

             Shirley: "Dart, I saw your bear heart. However, I cannot give you
                      my spirit. You lost control. Think it over again."

         R7: "Really? Dart, I'm so happy!"

             [She changes back into Shirley.]

             Shirley: "Lavitz, show me what you believe."

             [She changes into King Albert.]

             Shirley: "Lavitz! What are you doing here! Forget Shana and go
                      back."
                      R9 --> Yes, Your Majesty. Coming.
                     R10 --> That's not like you!

         R8: "I see. I understand. I am unable to persuade you."

             [She changes back into Shirley.]

             Shirley: "Dart, I saw your bear heart. However, I cannot give you
                      my spirit. You lost control. Think it over again."

         R9: "A knight is to obey the iron code of chivalry. You mustn't think
             of yourself. You cannot disobey a king's order no matter what."

             [She changes back into Shirley.]

             Shirley: "Lavitz, I have seen what you believe. However, I cannot
                      give you my spirit. Try to remember, what you saw in your
                      father. Think it over again."

        R10: "Are you disobeying my order? Lavitz! Are you disobeying my order?
             Choosing one over many?"
             R11 --> Shana needs me!
             R12 --> Don't command me!

        R11: "Lavitz, well said. That's the renown Knight of Serdio. Life is
             precious whether it's one or many. Help out with Shana."

             [Dart's section may start here if you picked R2.]

        R12: "You dare!! Are you still a Knight of Serdio!?"

             [She changes back into Shirley.]

             Shirley: "Lavitz, I have seen what you believe. However, I cannot
                      give you my spirit. Try to remember, what you saw in your
                      father. Think it over again."

[Once you complete Lavitz and Dart's trials, Shirley will ask:]

Shirley: "Dart, advancing will bring truth as well as ordeals. And you still
         want to go?"
         R1 --> No matter what, I will go.
         R2 --> I'll save Shana and go home.

         R1: "Brave young people, what you'll see is all the truth. Never gaze
             away. Only total acceptance brings you to the way."
         R2: "That is fine. There is no greater bliss than time spent with
             loved ones. Rebuild your village, raise children, and weave your
             future. Don't forget your feelings. 

Shirley: "Lavitz, I ask you. Who is the most important person for you to
         protect?"
         R1 --> Mother.
         R2 --> Lordship.

         R1: "It's human to care about parents. You are human before being a
             knight. Parents care for children and a child yearns for its 
             parent. The bonding makes a human strong. Don't forget you have
             somebody waiting for you."
         R2: "A lord's role is to bring people together and give orers. A
             knight's role is to serve, and to ensure peace and a safe place
             for people. The times need you. Never rush to die.

Shirley: "Lastly Rose, I ask you. What does life mean to you?"
         R1 --> I've never thought about it.
         R2 --> Nothing but sacrifice.

         R1: "Rose, I see the end of your agonizing journey. The young man
             there will awaken the old you, and lead you to the future. Now,
             illuminate the dark road with my White Silver Dragoon Spirit. The
             new Dragoons!"

         R2: [Same as R1]

[The battle ends and Dart gets the White Silver Dragoon Spirit.]

Shirley: "That was beautiful. Take this with you as I promised, but I have one
         favor to ask. He has protected my peace from countless attempts by
         bandits. He stood up to you for me. Please save Drake. I don't have
         an entity so I cannot draw on the power of the spirit."

Dart: "But I don't feel any power holding it like this."

Rose: "Hold it up with the spirit of the Red-Eye Dragoon Spirit."

[The power of the two combined resonates...]

Dart: "This is!?"

Shirley: "Your Red-Eye Dragon draws the healing power of the White Silver
         Dragoon Spirit."

Drake: "Ah... Ahhhh...."

[...and revivifies the dying Drake.]

Drake: "Am I...alive?"

Shirley: "Good."

Dart: "We can save her with this!"

Shirley: "Dart, gazing at the truth sometimes brings pain, but you will be
         able to overcome it."

[She nods to Rose and disappears.]

Shirley: "Farewell Rose. I am looking forward to the date our roads of fate
         cross again."

Dart: "Shirley!?"

Rose: "She is headed to the place where she belongs."

Dart: "Let's go. Shana is waiting."

[Back at Sanator's...]

Sanator: "Did you find a Dragoni Plant!?"

[Dart puts the White Silver Dragoon Spirit on the bed to show Sanator.]

Dart: "But with this.... We should be able to save her."

[The Spirit shines.]

Sanator: "What!!"

Dart: "Wh, what!?"

Lavitz: "I thought the power cannot be released without the help from another
        spirit, right?"

Rose: "..."

[Shana wakes up.]

Dart: "Shana!"

Shana: "Dart, what is this?"

Dart: "It's the Dragoon Spirit of the White Silver Dragon. I wonder if Shana
      is!?"

Lavitz: "A Dragoon!"

Rose: "Otherwise, this much power wouldn't drawn. Shana purged the poison with
      her own power."

Sanator: "It's true. Her spirit is back in her body. The poison is completely
         gone!"

Shana: "Dart.... What is going on?"

[Everyone takes out their shining Spirits.]

Dart: "I don't know if it is a coincidence or fate, but you were saved with
      this power, Shana. Do you feel it? This is the power of the Dragon...the
      Dragoon."

Shana: "Yes, I feel it. The warm power of a Dragon.... Not only powerful, but
       very tender."

Sanator: "Ex, Excuse em, it's too bright and I cannot see! Can you do something
         about it!?"

Shana: "Oh! Sorry!"

[Shana puts the Spirit away.]

Dart: "Can you get up?"

Shana: "See. I'm fine now!"

Dart: "Doctor.... About this, I don't know what to say."

Sanator: "I wouldn't understand even if you told me. It's enough just seeing
         a miracle with my own eyes! It was worth waiting this long! In 
         addition, I don't need any reward. Just end the war quickly. That'll
         do."

Dart: "There is no more threat of the Dragon. The rest will be taken care of
      by King Albert soon."

Sanator: "I see.... Hmm, you defeated that Dragon. Hmmm, you may win your way
         through to a pretty good level. Wait, not only that. You might be able
         to win the title of the strongest in the world!"

Dart: "The strongest in the world?"

Sanator: "Are you interested, huh? Well, you are just in time for the Hero
         Competition. Daredevils are coming from all over the world to compete
         with their brawn and brains. If you are interested, go to the Arena.
         I am looking forward to seeing the match."

[Dart heads to the Arena and finds a sign-up booth.]

Ginger: "Hey, if any of you people out there are live fast die young types, and
        want to test your courage, step up and fill out the application! My 
        advice to those of you who are feeble, cowards, or have cold feet, 
        don't register. I guarantee you will die. So you'll register now?"

Dart: R1 --> Not yet.
      R2 --> I'll participate.

      R1: "Not yet.

          Ginger: "Come back if you change your mind!"

[R2:]

Dart: "I'll participate."

Ginger: "That's my man! And, who will be participating?"

Dart: "Of course I am. Hey Lavitz. Don't go easy on me."

Lavitz: "I'm not participating. I am a Knight of Basil. I am not eligible to
        participate in these kinds of competitions."

Rose: "I won't either. I don'tlike the word, 'dude.' Besides, it'll spoil the
      competition if I participate. I'm too good."

Shana: "Good luck!"

Lavitz: "We will be watching from up there."

[Shana and Rose leave.]

Lavitz: "Don't embarrass yourself in front of Shana. (Just don't turn yourself
        into a Dragoon. It'll create a big mess.)"

Ginger: "When you are ready, go to the waiting room! We'll be waiting for you!"

[Dart heads to the waiting room.]

Wandering Warrior: "What!! Old Geezer!! Say that again!!"

????: "Martial abilities mature along with the spirit. You have such an
      immature spirit. You are not a match for me."

Wandering Warrior: "Urrggghh!! I can't stand it anymore!! I'll settle up with
                   you here!!"

[The 'old geezer' punches his lights out.]

????: "I told you so. You have to respect old people."

Dart: "Haschel!!"

Haschel: "Oh!? Oh!! It's you Dart!!"

Dart: "You'll never change."

Haschel: "Well, I taught him some courtesy. That's all. Hmm, you...have become
         tougher since the last time I saw you."

Dart: "You too, Haschel, you look even stronger."

Haschel: "Ha ha ha! Even if you flatter me, I won't go easy on you!"

Dart: "I know. I missed you, man. Talking to you reminds me of our journey
      together."

Haschel: "That reminds me.... What happened to...that black whachamacallit?"

Ginger: "Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey! Gents! The time has come to decide the
        strongest in Endiness! Enter the arena when you are ready!!"

Haschel: "Don't lose before our match! This is it. Here I come!"

[Haschel enters his first match.]

Attendant: "It's the first round. Are you ready?"
           R1 --> Hold on a little.
           R2 --> Yeah.

           R1 (Dart): "Hold on a little."
           R2 (Dart): "Yeah!"

              Attendant: "Are you tensed up? It's natural when this is your
                         first time. Take it easy!"

[Dart goes into the arena, fighting Gorgaga, whom he beats easily.]

Gorgaga: "Darn! You just wait!!"

Attendant: "It was a great victory over Gorgaga. Are you ready for the second
           round?"
           R1 --> Hold on a little.
           R2 --> Yeah!
 
           R1 (Dart): "Hold on a little."
           R2 (Dart): "Yeah!"

              Attendant: "You are relaxed a little. But still stiff. A deep
                         breath....maybe isn't necessary. Here you go!"

[The fight against Serfius starts and ends quickly.]

Serfius: "Agh! Too powerful...."

Attendant: "Your chances are very good, because you defeated the famous
           Serfius! Are you ready for the third round!?"
           R1 --> Hold on a little.
           R2 --> Yeah!
           
           R1 (Dart): "Hold on a little."
           R2 (Dart): "Yeah!"

              Attendant: "You've warmed up haven't you! Give it your best shot
                         for your friends upstairs! Come on, let's begin!"

[Dart defeats Danton.]

Danton: "It cannot be."

[Dart goes back to the waiting room.]

Attendant: "Next is the semifinals! Your match is with last year's champion,
           Atlow! Even though he lost, he is pretty strong!"
           R1 --> Hold on a little.
           R2 --> Yeah!
           
           R1 (Dart): "Hold on a little."
           R2 (Dart): "Yeah!"

              Attendant: "The only thing I can say now is it's a game of
                         chance! Good luck!"

[Dart defeats Atlow.]

Atlow: "What a monster! Nobody should be able to get up after that!"

[Dart heads back to the waiting room.]

Dart: "Hey Haschel! At last we can meet in the final match!"

Haschel: "Well...the world is still to be explored. Ha Ha Ha."

Dart: "No, did you lose?"

Haschel: "He was a tremendous sword master. I think...his name was Lloyd or
         something. Think of him as a test for yourself, and just do it."

[Lloyd enters.]

Haschel: "Speak of the devil."

Dart: "My name is Dart. We will meet in the final match. Let's have a good
      one."

Lloyd: "Indeed. I dedicate this match to what fate has in store for us."

Dart: "What?"

Ginger: "Here is the gong to determine the strongest! No time for holding back
        anymore! The crowd is on the edge of their seats!"

Haschel: "It comes from the heart, after all."

Attendant: "I now am one of your fans. Your way of fighting, sword use, 
           defense, talking, everything is fabulous. Now the finals are next!!
           Come on!!"
           R1 --> Hold on a little.
           R2 --> Yeah!
           
           R1 (Dart): "Hold on a little."
           R2 (Dart): "Yeah!"

              Attendant: "I knew it would happen. I'm not going to stop you! 
                         For your friends, claim the title and come back
                         here!!"

[Dart squares off against Lloyd.]

Dart: "What swordsmanship! It's humanly impossible!!"

[Lloyd raises his sword again.]

Lloyd: "It's pathetic, and out of the question."

[After a bit of swordplay:]

Lloyd: "It's about time."

[He and Dart rush each other, but Lloyd slashes through him and wins.]

Ginger: "Here are the results of the annual Endiness Hero Competition!! The
        victor, is the Platinum-haired swordsman, Lloyd!!! The toughest and
        strongest man in all of Endiness!!! Second is Dart the 'Young Flame'!!
        Third place goes to Haschel, the 'Master of the Rouge Art'!!

[In the waiting room, Dart and Haschel talk. Lloyd is there, too.]

Dart: "I was totally defeated."

Lloyd: "You haven't reached your limits. You will be stronger. You will have
       to be. You too. You'll become stronger."

Haschel: "You flatter me."

[Lavitz runs in.]

Lavitz: "Come out quickly. Everybody is waiting for you, Dart. In particular,
        Shana! I watched your match with Dart. I would love to have a match 
        with you if this were a time of peace."

Lloyd: "Sorry, but you are no match for me."

Lavitz: "It's hard to take, but it must be true. Someday, if we meet, please
        accept my challenge. I'll be stronger too."

Lloyd: "I'll think about it."

[Lloyd leaves.]

Dart: "It's not only you, Lavitz, who needs more discipline. I couldn't keep
      up with him either."

Haschel: "Me neither. Ha ha ha."

Lavitz: "You must be Master Haschel of the Rouge School."

Dart: "I didn't introduce you to everybody, yet. Why don't we go outside? I
      want you to meet my friends."

Haschel: "Interesting! The lone wolf Dart has 'friends"! Let me see your
         friends!"

[They meet by the exit.]

Shana: "Dart!! Congratulations on second place!"

Dart: "Thanks. I wish I could have won first prize for you."

Shana: "It's okay, Dart. You looked very cool! Besides, just having you safe 
       is enough for me. Oh, this person?"

Haschel: "You only watched Dart, did you? Oh well. Ha ha ha. Don't worry. It's
         universal. Girls in love are blind!"

Dart: "It's not that. You haven't changed, Haschel. He's never serious except
      when he is fighting."

Haschel: "Well it's not.... It's true. But the goal of my journey is a serious
         one. I am looking for my daughter who ran away."

Dart: "It was around four years ago. We met when I was on my quest pursuing the
      Black Monster."

Rose: [Black...Monster.]

Haschel: "The tootsie over there is your friend too?"

Rose: "Don't 'tootsie' me. My name is Rose."

Haschel: "Well, which one is Dart's sweetheart?"

Dart: "Wha, What are you talking about! Besides, I told you about Shana many
      times!"

Haschel: "Did you? So, you still think of her as your baby sister?"

Dart: "Stop that."

[Lavitz whispers to Dart.]

Lavitz: "Hey Dart. Here is the plan. Why don't you go around the arena just
        with Shana. Then, I can go out wiht Rose."

[He goes over to Rose and tells him the plan.]

Rose: "What?"

[She knocks him over.]

Rose: (Why do I have to go with you?)

Lavitz: (Just pretending. Really.)

Shana: "Dart.... It's a good chance. Can we do it?"

Haschel: "Shall we go?"

[Haschel and Shana start to walk away side-by-side.]

Lavitz: "I didn't mean you, Master Haschel!"

Haschel: "Oh yeah? It seems Dart cannot make up his mind so I thought I could
         do it for him." [Obtain: 3 tickets]

Dart: "I guess. We haven't had any time to relax. Shall we!?"

[Dart and Shana play a game.]

Shana: "I feel dizzy."

Dart: "It's my kind of game. It's like a battle."

Shana: "..."

Dart: "What do you want to do next?"

Shana: "Umm.... Anything you want, Dart. I am just happy to be alone with you.
       Besides, it's been a while since I've been in this kind of place."

Dart: "Let's go look for another place, then!"

[Dart goes over to Lavitz later.]

Lavitz: "Are you okay with that?"
        R1 --> Not yet.
        R2 --> I got enough.

        R1: "Not yet."

            Lavitz: "All ready. So go. I'll be waiting here."

        R2: "I got enough."

            Lavitz: "Had some fun?"

            Shana: "Yes. Thank you, Lavitz."

            Dart: "Now, we gotta get back to Bale otherwise, we'll be late 
                  with our report to King Albert."

            Lavitz: "Dart, come this way."

[Lavitz and Dart talk outside.]

Lavitz: "Did you do something about it?"

Dart: "I didn't do anything."

Lavitz: "'Anything?' You didn't even take her hand?"

Dart: "Shana is not a baby anymore. I don't need to go hand in hand."

Lavitz: "Dart, are you getting what I am talking about?"

Dart: "I guess. But Shana is like a baby sister to me. I cannot change that."

Lavitz: "I don't think Shana thinks that way."

Dart: "When the war ends, I gotta go on my journey again. Pursuing the Black
      Monster...and I don't want her to be involved in that."

Lavitz: "Dart. Revenge doesn't solve anything. I learned that from the death
        of Greham, the guy who betrayed my father, the guy who defected to the
        Sandora.... The guy I hated. The person you should be looking for is 
        not in your past. Right? You should pay attention to the present. I'll
        accept a couple of drinks for this advice. When the war ends, let's
        have a drink in Bale."

[Lavitz walks back into the arena.]

Dart: "He, Hey, Wait!! Lavitz...."

[As the party turns to leave, a wounded Knight of Basil enters town.]

Woman: "Yeek!!"

Knight of Basil: "Urgh!!"

[The knight falls over.]

Lavitz: "You, you are a Knight of Basil!! What has happened?"

Knight of Basil: "Sir...Lavitz? I'm...glad... At least I won't die in vain...."

Lavitz: "What's going on!?"

Knight of Basil: "Sandoras...surprised us with an attack... His Majesty
                 Albert...is in captivity...."

Lavitz: "What!?"

Knight of Basil: "The King...Hellena..."

[The knight dies.]

Lavitz: "King Albert!! I am coming now!!"

Dart: "Calm down Lavitz!! Pull yourself together!!"

Lavitz: "Let me go!!! I gotta go! King Albert!!!"

[Haschel gut-punches him to calm him down.]

Lavitz: "Ou...!!"

Haschel: "Sorry about that."

[Lavitz regains consciousness at Sanator's.]

Lavitz: "I am.... King Albert!!"

Haschel: "You idiot!! When knights lose self-control, their lord cannot be
         saved. Only you can save King Albert now."

Lavitz: "!?"

Haschel: "While you were sleeping, I want to get a feel for the situation.
         Bale is under occupation. So, I don't think the remaining knights can
         do anything."

Lavitz: "What about King Albert!?"

Haschel: "He offered himself up as a captive so that the people in Basil could
         be safe."

Lavitz: "Just because I defeated a dragon...!! Why was I all whooped up!!"

Haschel: "There is no time for procrastination."

Lavitz: "!?"

Dart: "There is no choice. We must venture forth to Hellena!"

Haschel: "We are taking the king back, aren't we?"

Shana: "We still have time!"

Rose: "If you are going to go, make up your mind quickly."

Lavitz: "Yeah!! That's right!! We are still here!! But how about you, Master
        Haschel?"

Haschel: "I've gone too far, I might as well just go too."

Lavitz: "What about your daughter!?"

Haschel: "Don't mind me. I have already been looking for her for 20 years.
         Going with you for a little while won't make any difference."

Lavitz: "Master Haschel, I cannot thank you enough."

Haschel: "Don't worry about it. But can you call me just Haschel? Master
         Haschel makes me feel uneasy...that includes you too, Shana."

Shana: "Okay, Haschel!"

Haschel: "It feels good to be called by my first name by a young girl."

Lavitz: "Now! As soon as we are ready, let's head for Hellena!!"

[They leave.]

Sanator: "I'll have lots of things to do."

| Ch. 1 - 17 - Hellena Prison                                            HLL2 |
o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

[The infiltration begins anew.]

 Dart: "The bridge is being raised!!"

[Only Lavitz gets across the drawbridge while it's down.]

 Dart: "Lavitz!!

 Lavitz: It's nothing!!

[Sword clashing is heard, and the drawbridge lowers.]

 Lavitz: "Go!!"

[Elsewhere in the massive prison, Fruegel talks with a captive Albert.]

 Fruegel: "Hee hee hee hee! It will be dawn soon! I am such a nice guy aren't
          I? Letting you see the sun before you die! Say something!!"

 Hellena Warden: "Bu, but the order says leave him alive."

 Fruegel: "Shut up!! When the sun rises!! This guy will be...mine from that
          moment!! Say something, huh!? King!!"

 Albert: "I don't have a means to speak with vulgar men."

 Fruegel: "And you will be killed by that 'vulgar' man!! Well at least you are
          not alone. Those guys from Bale, will come after you soon!!"

 Albert: "How...how villanous! What about the promise not to hurt people!? I
         didn't know Doel had become so ruthless!!"

 Fruegel: "We just want your 'body'! I don't know the rest!! Hee hee hee hee!!"

 Hellena Warden (2): "Intruders are here!! They are coming this way headed by
                     Lavitz and a man in red armor!!

 Albert: "Lavitz!!"

 Fruegel: "The head of the knights and the red one!!! That's interesting. They
          might be the saving stars for you, but you won't have a chance to see
          them. Both the stars and you will be gone when the sun rises!! Hee
          hee hee hee!!!!"

[Eventually, the team makes it to the top and finds a warden ambush.]

 Dart: "!!"

 Hellena Warden: "Thank you for coming all the way here!!"

 Lavitz: "An ambush, huh? Take us to King Albert!! Or it'll be your last
         breath!!"

 Hellena Warden: "Hmm. Brave, brave. You still don't know who you are and
                 where you are."

 Dart: "I don't want to have a needless battle! Shut up and get out of our
       way!"

 Hellena Warden: "We know how strong you are. But it doesn't make any
                 difference because you are still just feed!!"

[A trapdoor sends everyone plummeting into a lower area.]

 Dart: "Shoot!!"

[Everyone regroups in the large cell.]

 Dart: "Everybody alright!?

 Shana: "I'm fine."

 Lavitz: "This is not even a problem."

 Haschel: "Sandora is such a coward. Making a trap like that without
          fighting..."

 Rose: "Well, it is one way to fight. It's our own fault for being trapped."

 Haschel: "You are harsh."

[Dart inspects the wall Shana is looking at.]

 Dart: "It's true. The draft is coming from here!"

 Lavitz: "Then, if we move the rock there should be a way out!!"

 Haschel: "It seems we have to welcome unwanted guests before that."

 Rose: "Well, we are supposed to be feed. We have everything we need."

 Dart: "Coming!!"

[The party defeats Jiango and the rock wall reveals the exit.]

 Lavitz: "We made it!"

 Dart: "There is no enemy in front of us!"

 Lavitz: "Yeah!!"

 Haschel: "Look at that! The monster fell and the rock collapsed!"

 Lavitz: "Let's go!!"

[Lavitz, Dart, and Rose run off.]

 Haschel: "Shana, is something wrong?"

 Shana: "Men can have a great friendship."

 Haschel: "It's about Dart and Lavitz, isn't it."

 Shana: "They understand each other without a word. Man and woman cannot be
        like that. I envy them a little bit."

 Haschel: "What about with Dart?"

 Shana: "I...still don't know yet. He seems to have been thinking about me as
        his 'sister'."

 Dart: "Shana! Is anything wrong!?"

 Shana: "No! Nothing! I'm coming!"

[After cutting down some wardens, the party makes their way towards Albert,
who's seeing dawn rise.]

 Fruegel: "The sun is rising. It's good for you! You die and the war ends! That
          was your wish wasn't it? You want to end the war don't you? I'll make
          your dream come true very soon. Hee hee hee hee!!"

 Albert: "Agh, I am vexed!!"

 Fruegel: "It's unfortunate for Lord Doel, but I cannot wait for the one with
          the silver hair!! I just want to kill you so badly!! When I see the
          smallest glimpse of the sun, I'll cut your head off for ya!!

[An arrow strikes Freugel.]

 Freugel: "UURRGHH!!"

 Lavitz: "King Albert!!! I won't forgive you!!!"

 Fruegel: "Tut. Those rats came on time. It doesn't matter. I'll get you all
          before Albert!!"

[The party defeats the evil head warden. Albert cries out in pain as a man
dressed in black pulls something out of his body.]

 Albert: "Argggghhhh!"

 ??????: "I knew it was here. Moon Gem."

 Dart: "Moon Gem!?"

[Lavitz, enfuriated, lunges in Dragoon form towards the man.]

 Lavitz: "Ahhhhhhh!!"

[The man brings out a strange sword and stabs Lavitz easily.]

 Dart: "Laviiiiitz!!"

 Rose: "The sword!"

[The strange man is revealed to be...]

 Dart: "Lloyd!!"

[Lloyd jumps out a window and escapes.]

 Dart: "Laviiiitz!! Lavitz, Hang on!! Hey!"

 Lavitz: "Is His Majesty Albert alright?"

 Dart: "Yes, yes."

 Lavitz: "I see. I can entrust you with everything."

 Dart: "Lavitz...."

 Lavitz: "Dart, survive...and..."

[Lavitz dies.]

 Dart: "Lavitz...?

 Albert: "Lavitz, thank you."

[The Jade Dragoon Spirit leaves Lavitz and goes to Albert.]

 Dart: "Laaaaaaviiiiiiiiiitz!"

| Ch. 1 - 18 - Seles                                                     SLS2 |
o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

[After the events at Hellena, everyone regroups in Seles.]

 Albert: "I still have someplace for shelter...."

 Dart: "We can hide underneath here."

 Albert: "I'll help."

 Dart: "I cannot let you!"

 Albert: "Let me do it. When I am moving like this, I don't feel pain."

[They clear some rubble and enter a cellar.]

 Albert: "I owe you and Lavitz a debt of gratitude."

 Dart: "Lavitz is no more...."

 Shana: "But, we are still alive. Being alive means we can do anything we
        want, right? I think it is enough for now. ... I think Lavitz would
        agree with me."

 Albert: *Grin* "It reminds me of what Lavitz happily told me about you. That
         he had met 'guys he could finally call friends.' Now, I understand
         why. Dart, Shana, Haschel, and Rose, Lavitz was my most loyal and
         strongest knight, and at the same time, he was my precious friend.
         Yes, he was a great 'guy'. I would like to show you my gratitude.
         Thank you."

 Rose: "He was out of luck. I didn't know he had the Dragon Buster. If I had
       known it, I would have stopped Lavitz."

 Dart: "Dragon Buster? What are you talking about?"

 Rose: "It's a weapon from the old world made only to kill Dragons. Even with
       the almighty Dragoon Armor, it is a mere shroud in front of the Dragon
       Buster."

 Dart: "Lloyd.... What kind of plot is he weaving?"

[After awhile, Albert decides to share some information.]

 Albert: "I guess I have to talk about it with you. The truth about what Lloyd
         took from me.... Everything about it.... The story goes back 11,000
         years... Winglies who ruled the earth were defeated in the Dragon
         Campaign and disappeared. However, their sacred objects were scattered
         around the world. They contained their magic power concealed in them
         which only they could use. One of them was handed down in Serdio, and
         it has been sealed inside the body of each crown heir, because of the
         fear that the power could bring evil. The sacred object is the secret
         treasure of Serdio which has been taken. The Moon Gem."

 Rose: "Where did Lloyd find out about it?"

 Albert: "I was foolish. I bought his intelligence and employed him as an
         advisor. Probably, he was employed by Imperial Sandora."

 Rose: "That's right. Once he obtains the secret treasure, he is the crown heir
       of Serdio both in name and reality. The birth of the Conqueror King
       Doel. That would be the end of Basil."

 Dart: "His Majesty King Albert is still alive here. The war is not over yet!
       Basil is not finished!"

 Rose: "What is a king to do if he doesn't have a castle to go back to and a
       large force to protect him?"

 Albert: "Indeed, I am helplessly alone. However, as the Dragoons of yore lead
         Humans to victory.... We still have a chance to overcome. We have only
         one target. Emperor Doel in the Black Castle."

 Rose: "You have such a daring strategy. But it's not bad."

 Shana: "Let's do it!"

 Dart: "We can do this together!"

 Haschel: "My iron fist might be able to help you."

 Albert: "I will show them the full force of my lance, which I learned how to
         use from Lavitz!"

 Dart: "Lavitz! We won't let your death be in vain!"

[Meanwhile, in the Black Castle at Kazas...]

 Emperor Doel: "It seems Hellena fell."

 Lloyd: "Don't be so anxious. I got what I need."

 Emperor Doel: "Leaving the girl at large is one of your schemes, huh?"

 Lloyd: "It's none of your business."

 Emperor Doel: "Doesn't matter. I will soon hold sway over all Serdio. And,
               your plan will be completed."

 Lloyd: "No. It's just the beginning. At least be careful not to get carried
        away. Don't be burned in a red fire."

 Emperor Doel: "Nobody can stop me. I will not, even if I sell my soul to the

[As the Dragoons approach the front gate...]

 Dart: "!"

[...some guards walk by.]

 Dart: "I don't think breaking through from the front gate will work."

 Albert: "Let's do some more research. We may find a good way to sneak in."

[This time, they find a slum nearby.]

 ??: "Welcome to the ruins of the underground fortress. You guys look like new
     faces. You want to join the New Serdio Party, don't you? I want to let you
     in, but I need to ask three questions. I have to check you out. First
     question. Which country do you want to win, Basil or Sandora?"
     R1 -> Kingdom of Basil
     R2 -> Imperial Sandora
     R3 -> I can't say which.

     R1: "That's the Kingdom of Basil."

         ??: "Sorry, but I cannot let you in."

     R2: "Imperial Sandora?"

         ??: "Sorry, but I cannot let you in."

     R3: "I can't say which. The important thing is to end the war as soon as
         possible, not winning or losing."

         ??: "I think so too. Always hate or spite remains after the fight,
             regardless of whether you win or not."

 ??: "The second question. During the war, which should powerless kids like us
     do?"
     R1 -> Do nothing
     R2 -> Take up weapons
     R3 -> Take care at home

     R1: "I think they should do nothing. We cannot let kids fight."

         ??: "I agree with your first answer, but sorry. Think over and come
             back."

     R2: "Although as a last resort.... In extreme cases the kids should fight
         too."

         ??: "I agree with your first answer, but sorry. Think over and come
             back."

     R3: "We cannot send kids to battle. But somebody has to take care so that
         the people fighting have someplace to come back to."

         ??: "I agree. There are some things we can do too."

 ??: "The last question. Why do people have to fight?"
     R1 -> To obtain something
     R2 -> To protect something
     R3 -> To destroy something

     R1: "War is to win something.... So, it is to obtain something...?"

         ??: "Sorry come back again. If you can answer the last question right,
             I may be able to help you."

     R2: "If 'War' is to obtain or destroy something, I'll throw my sword away.
         I only fight to protect something."

         ??: "I think so too!! People should only fight to protect something! I
             learned that from my grandpa."

     R3: "'War'...hmm. Maybe people are fighting to destroy something after
         all."

         ??: "Sorry come back again. If you can answer the last question right,
             I may be able to help you."

 Dart: "You had a good grandpa, but you are...?"

 Popo: "I am Popo. I am a representative of the New Serdio Party. I am
       campaigning to help people who are having hard times because of the
       war."

 Albert: "It is amazing. I heard about the party, but I didn't think the
         representative would be this young."

 Popo: "Oh.... You.... Did we meet somewhere?"

 Albert: "We've never met before, but you might know my face. I am Albert, the
         King of Basil."

 Popo: "Oh my god!!! You, you, you are!!! King Albert!!??"

[Popo takes everyone inside to talk.]

 Popo: "I've been waiting for this day to come!! The day King Albert liberates
       Kazas and sets us free!!"

 Dart: "That's what we are here for. We will end the war now."

 Popo: "But, I don't think these few people can break through the defenses of
       the Black Castle."

 Albert: "Don't worry. We can do it. We can't tell you how though. They say
         that the power once was the card that liberated Humans from Winglies.
         Now, it is the ace to open up our own fate."

 Popo: "Ah, it's like a dream!! Now I can go look for my father and mother when
       the war ends."

 Rose: "Don't waste time babysitting like that. Why don't you think about how
       to get into the castle?"

 Popo: "I...I am just a kid, but I can show you the way in the castle!!"

 Dart: "Can you!?"

 Popo: "Yes! This place used to be a fortress, so there is a secret path to get
       to the Black Castle!"

 Dart: "Secret path? Now we are closer to Doel!"

 Popo: "Come with me now!!"

 Albert: "Please wait. If we fail, it'll be too risky for you. We will come
         back after we prepare."

 Popo: "I got it! I'll be waiting at the secret path! Please hurry up!!"

[They follow him.]

 Popo: "Are you ready to go into the Black Castle?"
       R1 -> Not yet.
       R2 -> Yeah. I'm ready.

       R1: "Not yet."

           Popo: "I see... But I think it has to be today. It's unusual, the
                 castle is quiet. I wonder if they found out that King Albert
                 is in Kazas? Hurry, or my secret path will be discovered!"

       R2: "Yeah. We are ready. The only thing left is to make it to the Black
           Castle."

 Popo: "I almost gave up when I heard Bale was taken, I thought all my
       campaigning was in vain. But I found out you are alive, Your Majesty,
       and we can still fight. I now see the future! Good luck!!"

 Dart: "Yes. I will defeat Doel, and end the war."

 Shana: "To prevent a repetition of the sorrow of you and Seles."

 Haschel: "I guess I'll be serious for the first time in a while!"

 Albert: "For the people who desire peace, I'll fight."

 Rose: "I'm going ahead."

 Dart: "Ro, Rose!!"

[Everyone follows her down the rope, which leads to the castle proper.]

[A ways into the castle, the party stumbles upon a weird pillar of light.]

 Dart: "What is this?"

 Green Flame Researcher: "You are...? Are you here to see my research?"

 White Flame Researcher: "Or.... To visit me?"

 Green Flame Researcher: "Either way, we are pleased. We like it when
                         mercenaries like you have an interest in our research."

 White Flame Researcher: "Indeed. Recently, barbaric suicidal attacks have
                         become common, but if our research is successful, it
                         will reduce the casualties of war. For example, that
                         White Flame has a healing power."

 Green Flame Researcher: "And that Green Flame isn't extinguished by water. When
                         we put it to practical use, it will provide an
                         advantage in war."

 Albert: "But...I've never seen such technologies. It's like...like magic."

 White Flame Researcher: "You don't need to know about that. There are already
                         enough of us involved in this accursed research."

 Green Flame Researcher: "Yes. Your job is to fight. There are too many things
                         we don't know about this power. If you get involved,
                         you might end up like Mr. Magi."

 White Flame Researcher: "It's too late for that guy. We have to complete this
                         research before it is too late for Sandora."

 Albert: "I see. I will end the war. But.... Can we ask you a little more? For
         example, what kind of function does this Purple Flame serve?"

 White Flame Researcher: "This flame is the power source of the castle. The
                         Purple Flame drives the elevators and lifts. It helps
                         people's lives. That's the proper way of usage."

 Albert: "But the war decides the usage now."

 Green Flame Researcher: "Yes. Even if this technology could be used for the
                         happiness of the people, once it is used wrongly, it
                         may bring unhappiness. What we are making may bring
                         unhappiness to the people in Basil."

 White Flame Researcher: "I agree. This research is after all based on the
                         calamity caused by the Dragon. War creates catastrophe.

 Green Flame Researcher: "It's a sad thing for both the people and the Dragon."

 Dart: "The Dragon!? The Dragon is involved in this research?"

 White Flame Researcher: "Oh, I slipped my tongue. Forget what I said."

 Green Flame Researcher: "Now, back to the research. Let me give you some Magic
                         Oil. This is the fuel for the Purple Flame. It gives
                         you mobility." [Acquired Magic Oil]

 White Flame Researcher: "If you want to be healed, come visit me anytime."

 Albert: "Thank you very much. It was very...useful."

[Using the Magic Oil, the party finds Mr. Magi's workroom.]

 ???????: "You...who are you!? I know. You are thieves who've come to steal my
          magic!!"

 Dart: "Wait! We are...."

 ???????: "No excuse!!"

 Dart: "Watch out! We don't know what he'll do!"

 Rose: "Let him. It seems interesting."

 ???????: "Take this!! The steel shearing vacuum blade!! Why! Why doesn't the
          magic work!? Why doesn't it shear them!"

 Rose: "It's worse than I thought."

 ???????: "That was...still under research! I'll show you this! Take the rock
          crushing thunder arrow!!"

 Haschel: "I see...you are the researcher who is 'too late' aren't you?"

 Shana: "Then.... Mr. Magi is...?"

 Magi the Magic Researcher: "Humph!! Those dumb researchers of trashy stuff said
                            something to you, didn't they!?"

 Rose: "Leave us alone."

 Albert: "We are not here to criticize your research."

 Magi the Magic Researcher: "Shut up!! I have already made the discovery! The
                            secret of a magic that those losers could never even
                            hope to know! The magic of transformation can only
                            be known by someone like mystel, who completely
                            understands the magical power of Dragons!! I'll show
                            it to you now!! Cerberus!! Emerge!!"

 Dart: "It seems real this time!"

[Magi changes into a fearsome, four-legged...puppy dog.]

 Shana: "I wonder? Is this dog, Mr. Magi?"

 Albert: "I guess it requires more research to be controlled by Humans."

 Rose: "But, at least in the end he amused us."

[Infiltrating further, everyone stumbles upon training guards.]

 Dart: "!!"

 Knight of Sandora 1: "Invaders!?"

 Knight of Sandora 2: "You had such good luck sneaking into the practice center,
                      didn't you!!"

 Knight of Sandora 3: "Catch'em!!"

[The first enemy is demolished.]

 Knight of Sandora 1: "The, these guys are unbelievable!!"

 Knight of Sandora 2: "Don't think!! We are Knights of Sandora, so just
                      defeat'em!!"

[KOS #2 is defeated.]

 Knight of Sandora 3: "Ag!! Am I the last one!? But I won't give up!!"

[All are deep-sixed soon enough.]

 Dart: "Well we took care of that."

[One room contains Sandora's general.]

 Great Commander of Sandora: "You are here. The girl from Seles...

 Dart: "You said "The girl from Seles"?

 Shana: "You, you took me away to Hellena."

 Great Commander of Sandora: "Indeed. I am the one who assaulted Seles under
                             the orders of Emperor Doel."

 Dart: "So, you killed everybody!!"

 Great Commander of Sandora: "That was done by the brutal unit loyal to
                             Fruegel. I wouldn't let them kill unnecessarily if
                             I were there... Anyway, it doesn't change the fact
                             that Imperial Sandora scorched Seles. If you want
                             revenge for your home, you can draw your sword
                             against me. But please do me one last favor. His
                             Majesty Doel changed after a man called Lloyd
                             showed up. He must have instilled something into
                             Emperor Doel, a demonic word that ignites his
                             desire to vanquish.... You were able to make it
                             here, so you might be able to do it. I beg you!
                             Wake Emperor Doel up!"

 Dart: "Do you understand what will result?"

 Great Commander of Sandora: "Yes. If you can accomplish that, the Imperial
                             Sandora's dominance will end and we even might be
                             defeated by Basil.... But the result will be the
                             same if the current oppression of Emperor Doel
                             continues. So we might as well make it happen
                             faster and remove hardships on our people."

 Dart: "There was a man like this in Sandora. Lavitz would be happy to hear
       this."

 Great Commander of Sandora: "So...are you in!?"

 Dart: "That's what we are here for.

 Great Commander of Sandora: "I'm relieved to hear that. Now, take this with
                             you." [Acquired Yellow Stone]

 Dart: "What is this?"

 Great Commander of Sandora: "It's the 'key' to the chamber of Emperor Doel.
                             Hurry up. We have no time."

[Leaving the general, the party a large goddess statue with indentations.]

 Shana: "Three holes. What are they? They might be something to do with the
        statue of the goddess."

 Dart: "Why do you think so?"

 Shana: "Because, look.... It seems this place is for admiring the statue."

 Dart: "There must be something.

[Dart inputs the Red, Yellow, and Blue stones. A door in the statue opens. Up
the stairway...]

 Dart: "Stay back!"

 Rose: "I smell blood in this air."

 Haschel: "It's not human..."

 Shana: "Kongol!!"

[An armored Kongol appears.]

 Kongol: "Gigantos don't lose twice!! Gigantos make pay back for Hoax!! For His
         Majesty Doel!!"

[The party still beats Kongol, and Rose skewers his weird armor off.]

 Kongol: "ARRRGGHHH! Gigantos, with strongest armor...lost. Me, brother of
         hero...has pride. Cannot live in disgrace.... Kill me."

 Rose: "As you wish."

 Dart: "Stop it! The game is already over!"

 Rose: "'Game'? Don't be silly, this is a matter of life or death."

 Shana: "It's over. He cannot fight."

 Rose: "Hope your sweetness won't kill you."

[Everyone finally reaches Emperor Doel's chamber.]

 Emperor Doel: "I wonder how you could come all the way here. Silly daredevils.

 Dart: "You must be Doel!!"

 Albert: "Uncle.... Do you remember me!? I am the son of your late brother....
         Albert!"

 Emperor Doel: "You remind me of...Carlo, 20 years ago. A bloodstained corpse
               in front of me...."

 Albert: "Why did you kill him!? Why did you have to divide Serdio by killing
         my father!?"

 Emperor Doel: "To save Serdio from an incapable leader named Carlo. And now
               my hands are about to give birth to the new Serdio!"

 Dart: "'Birth'!? What you are doing is only destructive!!"

 Albert: "Yes! You have given birth to sorrow, pain, agony, and our anger!"

 Dart: "Tell me!! Why did you have Shana taken away!?"

 Emperor Doel: "Oh, you are talking about Lloyd's conspiracy. 'Finds the girl
               by the time the Moon That Never Sets waxes....' All is ordered
               by the reborn Emperor Diaz. Lloyd is a mere pawn. Along with the
               Dragoons...."

 Rose: "Silly. Emperor Diaz died in the Dragon Campaign. As a human...hero."

 Emperor Doel: "I don't care whether you believe it or not. It won't make any
               difference to the reality! You thought, you would defeat me with
               greater numbers, right!? Come!! I'll send you to your father's
               placed!!"

 Albert: "Uncle!!"
 Dart: "Doel!!"

[The party defeats Doel.]

 Emperor Doel: "You have become...strong."

 Albert: "Uncle."

 Emperor Doel: "What you should know is not the past, but the future. Pursue...
               Lloyd. He is in the Western country of...Tiberoa."

 Dart: "Tiberoa?"

 Emperor Doel: "He....He knows everything. Go, and find out...about the world,
               about...everything."

[Emperor Doel dies.]

 Albert: "My uncle's, err, Emperor Doel's ambitions are over. It places and end
         to this ceaseless long war that has divided Serdio into two. This is
         the end of our journey everyone...."

 Dart: "Not yet.... It's not over yet.... This journey began when Shana was
       taken away! Then Lavitz was killed, and Lloyd headed for Tiberoa leaving
       the mystery about Shana behind! I am pursuing Lloyd! I'll make him
       explain everything!"

 Shana: "I'll go with you.... I still don't know anything about Virage or what
        was said by Emperor Diaz. My journey cannot end like this.... I'll go
        with you, Dart!"

 Albert: "My journey 'cannot end' either.... Whatever conspiracy the man is
         forming, the Moon Gem is one of the keys. Hollowed object concealing
         the magic power of the ancient Winglies. We have to stop it before it
         ignites a catastrophe in Tiberoa. I'll go with you to Tiberoa. I'll
         give up my status as king for a while, and live as a Dragoon instead.
         Lavitz would have completely agreed."

 Haschel: "Rose, how about you?"

 Rose: "I told you. I'm intersted in you guys."

 Dart: "So...."

 Rose: "Besides, you feel naked without me, don't you?"

 Haschel: "If Rose is going.... That's the end of my role."

 Dart: "Haschel, where are you going?"

 Haschel: "This is?"

[Haschel receives the 

 Rose: "'When Dragoons meet, blood will flow and as they leave, time does
       slow.' It's your choice to leave your fate behind."

 Haschel: "The question is answered."

 Dart: "Dragoon Spirits are leading us!"

[Having journeyed to Tiberoa, everyone enters a city resplendent in design.]

 Shana: "I smell...the ocean from this river!"

 Haschel: "It's close to the sea. Is anything wrong with the bridge?"

 Dart: "It says 'Claire Bridge'. It's the same name as my mom."

 Haschel: "Oh! My runaway daughter is named Claire, too! There may be some
          secret connection between us!"

 Rose: "It's impossible to have such a coincidence."

 Albert: "I agree with you. Let's say the population of the Endiness Continent
         is about 1,000,000 and 550,000 are women. According to the statistics
         of the Royal Personnel Authority, 4% of all women have the name
         Claire. It means from a statistical point of view...."

 Rose: "Just looking tells it all. They don't look like each other at all."

 Albert: "Hmmm, indeed. Cranioscopically speaking, the distance between their
         skull, eyeballs, and also their jawbones are...."

 Rose: "Let's go. He won't finish talking until dusk."

[In the center of town...]

 ????: "Yeek!!"

 Dart: "!?"

[Down the way a bit, by the castle gates...]

 Man : "Shoot, Pri, Princess Emille is here!!"

 All : "It's too sudden!! It's scary! Gods, please help us through this...."

[The princess appears.]

 Emille: "I heard somebody say 'Shoot'. Who was that!? Hey, I'm the princess in
         this country. You have to be nice to me!"

 Pregnant Mother: "Ex, Excuse me your highness, I would like you to name my
                  soon-to-be-born baby...."

 Emille: "I don't think so. It's a hell on wheels."

 Pregnant Mother: "Oh no!"

 Emille: "Disgusting!! Stop crying!!"

 Pregnant Mother: "Since my husband was killed by bandits.... This, this baby
                  has been my only hope."

 Emille: "Bandits!? Phooey! You bore me!!"

[She leaves.]

 Pregnant Mother: "Oh no!"

 Albert: "Is, is that person Princess Emille? I heard she was very sweet. Oh
         no...if this is a dream, please wake me up!"

[After the spectacle, everyone goes to unwind in the town bar.]

 Kaffi: "Welcome!! Come on in!! All the way to the back!! Oh, such slowpokes!
        You guys are from out of town, aren't ya!?"
        R1 -> Yes, we are
        R2 -> No, we are from here

        R1: "Yes, we are."

            Kaffi: "I knew it! I could immediately tell you are not from here.
                   You guys.... Mmmm, mmmm! Smell like exotic foreigners! Let
                   me give ya a quick introduction to this town!! You saw lots
                   of star shapes in this town didn't ya? There were 
                   decorations on top of roofs or mosaics on the street, right?
                   It's 'cuz Tiberoans have faith in the stars. Naturally, we
                   have an advanced astronomy."

            Shana: "It's the study of stars isn't it? Sounds wonderful."

            Kaffi: "Right!?"

            Albert: ("We are here to pursue Lloyd!")

            Kaffi: "Whadayasay? What are you two guys whispering about? Are you
                   becoming more interested in stars?"
                   R3 -> Yes we are.
                   R4 -> I'm sorry, but....

        R2: "No, we are from here."

            Kaffi: "You, liar!! You don't look like you are from here!! Liar!!"

            Barkeep: "Hey!! Kaffi!! Don't start up a fight with customers!!"

            Kaffi: "Okay. Sorry. I gotta get back to work. (But why don't ya
                   come back later. I have lots of things to tell ya. Besides,
                   actually, we're not that busy.)"

        R3: "Yes we are."

            Kaffi: "Really! To tell ya the truth, I love to talk about stars
                   with people from out of town while working at this here
                   bar! Well, the stars are beyond the sky! They are way over
                   the clouds! They are bright although they are far away. Cuz
                   each of the stars has a lighthouse on it. Cuz they have a
                   lighthouse, they never get lost in the sky! And, and!"

            Barkeep: "Hey!! Kaffi!! Don't give the customers hard time!!"

            Kaffi: "Okay. Sorry. I gotta get back to work. (But why don't ya
                   come back later. I have lots of things to tell ya. Besides,
                   actually, we're not that busy.)"

        R4: "I'm sorry, but.... We are actually looking for a man named Lloyd."

            Kaffi: "A 'man'? Are you more interested in a man than stars!? Just
                   kidding! Hmm, Lloyd? I dunno, if Miss Kaffi the hipster
                   doesn't know it means he probably isn't in this town. Are
                   you still interested in hearing about stars?"
                   R5 -> Uh huh.
                   R6 -> I don't think so.

        R5: "Uh huh."

            Kaffi: "Sorry...I only know things that everybody else knows. You
                   know what! I'll introduce you to a person you would like!!
                   He's an astronomer named Fester! He is crazy about the Moon
                   That Never Sets. I think he can tell you lots of interesting
                   things."

            Dart: "The Moon That Never Sets?"

            Kaffi: "You know, the one over there. The strange star in the sky
                   all the time, day or night. I heard he is doing research
                   about the relationship between a monster called the Black
                   whachamacallit and the Moon That Never Sets. Why don't you
                   drop by? He's next door."

            Barkeep: "Hey!! Kaffi!! Stop goofing around!! It's already dark
                     outside!!"

            Kaffi: "Okay. Sorry. I gotta get back to work."

        R6: "I don't think so."

            Kaffi: "I knew from the start that you actually didn't want to
                   listen to me!! I know you actually don't like to talk!!"

            Barkeep: "Hey!! Kaffi!! Don't get into it with the customers!!"

            Kaffi: "Okay. Sorry. I gotta get back to work. (But why don't ya
                   come back later. I have lots of things to tell ya. Besides,
                   actually, we're not that busy.)"

[By doing the right order, it will be nighttime. They go to Fester's.]

 Shana: "This must be the house next door. I wonder if Mr. Fester is in? Maybe
        not?"

 Dart: "The lights are on though."

 Shana: "Let me see! Mr. Festeeeer!! Are you hoooome!?"

 Fester: "Yes, yes I am!! Sorry! I wasn't paying attention. I was admiring the
         moon. Come on in! Please, let's talk inside."

[They all go in.]

 Dart: "We are here to ask you about the Moon That Never Sets."

 Fester: "Oh! About the Moon That Never Sets! Wait here for a minute. Let me get
         some materials. You are interested in a weird matter. Of course, I
         cannot make judgements about other people. Please take a look at this.
         In astronomy, a Moon That Never Sets cannot exist."

 Dart: "Cannot exist?"

 Fester: "That's right. Stars travel the sky by catching the winds of time. But,
         this moon is not affected by time. It never moves, day or night. That's
         why it's called the Moon That Never Sets. After counting 108 years,
         when the Moon That Never Sets glows red, a moon child descends upon the
         earth to fill the world with holy bliss. A poem of war, telling the
         fate given by the Moon. However, what we really get is the spawning of
         destruction and fear, that is the Black Monster.

 Dart: "Monster!!"

 Fester: "Why a demon not a blessing? What does it mean? The mystery has yet to
         be resolved."

 Albert: "I never imagined we would be able to get some information on the Black
         Monster here."

 Fester: "Did you find this useful?"

 Shana: "Yes! You think so too, right Dart?"

 Fester: "Very good. It is a pleasure to be helpful to such a beautiful lady."
         R1 -> (Ignore.)
         R2 -> You said who is beautiful?

         R1: (Ignore.)

         R2: "You said who is beautiful?"

             Shana: "Hey!"

             Dart: "I guess there are many ways to see things."

             Shana: "Whatever!"

             Dart: "Stop it!"

             Haschel: "Having a good friend is beautiful. It makes me envious."

[The town bell chimes.]

 Fester: "Oh, it's getting late! I have to hurry up or I will be making the
         Princess wait! It's hard to eat only by astronomy. I'm acting as the
         governor of Princess Lisa as well. Oh, if you want to take a good
         look at the Moon That Never Sets, go upstairs and take a look through
         the telescope. It's set in the direction of the Moon That Never Sets.
         Now, I am heading to the castle."

[Fester leaves and everyone walks towards a newly-opened house.]

 Nello: "Welcome. I am Nello, the representative of the Green Project, turning
        the brown barrens to green, the deserts to forest. Don't be so shy. You
        too wish to bring green back to the earth don't you?"
        R1 -> Actually not.
        R2 -> Yes, we do.

        R1: "Actually not."

            Nello: "Oh, I see. I won't force my opinion on you. But if you
                   change your mind please drop by anytime."

        R2: "Yes we do."

 Nello: "I thought so! But it's already late. It'll take a whole night to
        explain my plan."

 Dart: "A whole night, hmm!? But actually, it's okay with us isn't it? We were
       in trouble because there was nowhere tos tay for the night. We are not
       allowed to leave town either."

 Nello: "I see! I have plenty of time to tell you about the Green Project
        tonight then!"

 Albert: "The re-vegetation of the desert is a very interesting issue."

 Nello: "Right! In principle, the relationship between Humans and the earth
        should be!"

[Dart goes over to Shana.]

 Dart: "Watching the buds?"

 Shana: "Maybe...they are some kind of flower buds. I've never seen anything
        like this.... I wonder how they bloom."

 Dart: "You are excited about it, aren't you? Talking about buds. You've always
       liked to see flowers blooming."

 Shana: "You remember that...."

 Nello: "Humans should grow up surrounded by greenery."

 Albert: "Exactly. Green not only gives peace of mind but brings us marvelous
         things."

 Nello: "Fruits, vegetables, delicious air. All are brought by greenery."

 Rose: "I guess they really will talk until morning."

 Haschel: "The king has such curiosity...."

 Dart: "I hope we can fill Seles with green some day."

 Shana: "Yes."

 Albert: "The issue here is how to promote the greening."

 Nello: "That's the key issue. The research requires a lot of money."

[Everyone stays the night, finally.]

 Dart: "There are no signs of Lloyd after all."

 Shana: "I cannot imagine that Emperor Doel told us a lie."

 Albert: "In his last moment, my uncle was himself again. I think we can trust
         the information that Lloyd headed for Tiberoa. So we should assume that
         we crossed paths with Lloyd."

 Dart: "So, where in the world?"

 Rose: "In any case, the king is getting along with a motley crew like us."

 Haschel: "I was concerned at first. I even imagined that we were going to be
          pushed around by the King's ego."

 Albert: "Please, stop teasting me, both of you! What I would like you to do is
         just treat me as an equal, as a friend traveling together!"

 Shana: "Dart is not good at speaking with courtesy. He gets cramps in his
        tongue when he tries for a long time."

 Dart: "I appreciate your solicitude, Your Majesty."

 Albert: "Let's stop using that 'Your Majesty'. We will be in trouble if anybody
         hears that. Anyway, the priority is to pursue Lloyd. This is not the
         only town in Tiboeria. If my memory is correct, there should be a town
         called Donau along the north sea shore."

 Shana: "Let's go there now!"

 Dart: "Okay! Let's leave as soon as possible!"

[A little ways in, the party stumbles upon bandits.]

 Dart: "!!"

 Mappi: "Hee Hee Hee!! Are you dating those girls in a place like this!?"

 Dart: "Who, are you?"

 Mappi: "Hee hee hee! Did you hear that? They are asking us 'who we are'!!"

 Gehrich Gang A: "I guess they think we're a bunch of doctors!!"

 Gehrich Gang B: "Should be a quack!! Ha ha ha!!"

 Mappi: "Surprise, surprise!! We are the one and only Gehrich Gang!! We're so
        bad we scare ghosts back to hell!!"

 Dart: "They have no class."

 Gehrich Gang A: "Hey what did you say?!! Yo Mappi!! How should I cook these
                 dumbheads!?"

 Mappi: "Well, hmmm. I know what!! Let's get our reward of money and the
        bimbos!"

 Albert: "We have nothing to give you. But if you insist, how about a
         'miserable ending' for you?"

 Mappi: "Stop yapping like that! Just leave your valuables. It's that simple!"

 Dart: "Get out of our way. We don't have time to play with you."

 Rose: "This is your last chance. Get out of our way or you'll need a real
       doctor."

 Mappi: "Gwa...! ARRGGGH!!! I'm totally pissed!! Smash their heads will ya,
        brother!?"

[The party smacks Mappi and his team around.]

 Mappi: "H, hold. Wow. It's...It'smy fault. I won'd\t to it again. Please
        forgive me. Just kidding!"

[Mappi strikes at Dart and knocks his Dragoon Spirit loose. Mappi gets it.]

 Mappi: "What's this?"

[Mappi leaves with the spirit, despite Rose's attempts.]

 Albert: "He's gone."

 Dart: "It's my fault for not being careful enough!"

 Rose: "A Dragoon Spirit being stolen is the last thing I wanted to have happen.

 Albert: "Anyway, let's move on to Donau. We might find out something about the
         Gehrich Gang when we get there.

[Everyone moves onto...]

[Everyone enters the verdant city.]

 Girl: "Wel, Welcome to Donau the Flower City."

 Shana: "Thank you."

 Girl: "Thank god! You don't look like bandits! Your clothes are so filthy
       that at first I thought you might be!"

 Albert: "We really are covered in dust. It's natural the girl would be
         mistaken."

 Shana: "Don't stare at me like that!"

 Dart: "It's not that bad."

 Rose: "We don't have time for fooling around like that."

 Haschel: "Are you jealous?"

 Rose: "I am just concerned about the Dragoon Spirit."

[Elsewhere in town, bandits close in on a person...]
 
 ????: "Noooooooo!! What are you going to do!?"

 Bandit 1: "We are deciding now! Hee Hee Hee.... As I expected. You are one of
           the Sacred Sisters of Mille Seseau aren't ya!? You have such a pretty
           face, don't you!?"

 Bandit 2: "Great! Selling her will make us rich!"

 Bandit 3: "Don't make a noise and we won't harm you!!"

 ????: "Some, somebody help!!!"

[Lloyd walks out from a room.]

 ????: "Oh, Gentleman over there!! P, please...."

 Bandit 1: "Just go away! Or you'll be sorry!"

 Bandit 2: "Are you gonna get in our way!?"

 Lloyd: "Please continue,"

 Bandit 1: "What!?"

 Lloyd: "If you don't mind dying."

 Bandit 1: "YOU are the one to die!! Argh!!"

[Lloyd rebuffs the bandit.]

 Bandit 2: "Wh, What did you do!?"

 Lloyd: "Shall I continue?"

 Bandit 2 & 3: "Ahhh!!"

[They all flee.]

 ????: "P, Please wait!! I don't know who you are, but thank you very much for
       helping me!"

 Lloyd: "It's nothing."

 ????: "Oh, please, let me at least have your name!!"

 Lloyd: "It's Lloyd."

 Wink the Third Sacred Sister: "My, my name is Wink! I am a Sacred Sister of
                               Mille Seseau!! Oh, Lloyd."

[Lloyd's leaves and the allies enter a woman's house.]

 Kate: "Oh why, did you go Lynn? We are having a weddingsoon. It's impossible to
       have a talk with the Gehrichs. Who...who are you!?"

 Dart: "Don't worry. We are not bandits."

 Kate: "Really?"

 Shana: "There is something wrong isn't there?"

 Albert: "We might be able to be of some help. Tell us."

 Kate: "Okay. It all started this morning. When I finished my errands and came
       home, Lynn was gone. In his letter.... It says he is going to persuade
       the gang to pull themselves out of Donau. I'm supposed to wait for him at
       home."

 Dart: "He left a letter?"

 Kate: "I have an idea!! If I show this letter to the Mayor, he might do
       something to help! The Mayor is Lynn's father!"

 Dart: "I see. Let's bring this to the Mayor. You have to wait for Lynn here."

 Kate: "Oh, thank you!" [Acquired Letter from Lynn]

[Dart brings his crew to the mayor's.]

 Butler: "You cannot meet the Mayor because he is busy. I'm sorry, but please
         come back some other time."

 Dart: "Can you take a look at this letter?"

 Butler: "Th, this is.... P, Please come in!! Mayor! A horrible thing has
         happened!! It's about Mr. Lynn!!"

 Mayor of Donau: "!! What kind of man would venture to face the Gehrich Gang
                 himself?"

 Butler: "I didn't know Mr. Lynn was that consumed with...."

 Mayor of Donau: "It was my fault for not realizing it!!"

 Butler: "I bet Miss Kate is very stressed."

 Mayor of Donau: "You must go. As the Mayor, I don't want you to be involved in
                 this."

 Dart: "We are already involved. The gang took something very important away
       from me. Where do they come from?"

 Mayor of Donau: "They are from the Valley of Corrupted Gravity, but we don't
                 know anything about them other than that."

 Butler: "That place is very dangerous. They say nobody can come back once they
         enter the valley."
 
 Mayor of Donau: "Butler!! Don't say that!! Lynn...Lynn went there!!"

 Butler: "Now, we have to gather the people of Donau to form a rescue team."

 Mayor of Donau: "And then what will happen to the city? The gang might take
                 over the city."

 Dart: "Let us do it."

 Shana: "You were planning to go anyawy, weren't you?"

 Mayor of Donau: "Oh...it is encouraging to hear that warriors like you are
                 going!! Now, I can face those punks in our city with courage!!

[Back outside, a commotion is taking place.]

 Bandit: "Hey you, alky! How dare you touch my butt!"

 ????: "Don't be silly! Why would I touch the butt of a kid like you?"

[It's a girl talking with three bandits.]

 Bandit: "What did you say!?"

 ????: "I could forgive you if you'd admit that I am too sexy to ignore and
       apologize!"

 Bandit 2: "Huh? Is this kid dreaming or what?"

 ????: "I can't stand it anymore!!

[She kicks all of their behinds.]

 Bandit: "Ouch...! You!! You don't know who we are!?"

 ????: "I know."

 Bandit: "You think you can get away with it!?"

 ????: "Let me see.... I think so!"

 Bandit: "Darn! You'll pay for this!!"

[They all flee.]
 
 ????: "I won't be paying you!!"

 Dart: "Doesn't she have a better way to say goodbye?"

 ????: "Are you one of the Gehrich Gang? Do you want me to smash you too!?"

 Haschel: "Platinum hair.... The same as Lloyd. The rest is different."

 ????: "Are you maybe one of my groupies? Hmm, don't seem like it though. You
       guys...are some strange group of people. What's your name?"

 Dart: "It's Dart."

 Meru: "Mine's Meru!! I'm the best dancer in Donau!!"

 Rose: "We don't have time for playing with a kid."

 Albert: "I agree. We can't waste any time if we are going to help Lynn."

 Shana: "Sorry. But we gotta get going."

 Meru: "You said Lynn!? Then you guys are going to rescue Lynn!!"

 Dart: "How did you find out about that?"

 Meru: "'Cuz I heard it from Kate. But people in this city are all chickens,
       right? So I was gonna make a raid on their hideout! Then those bastards
       gave me a hard time! I guess they didn't tak eme seriously 'cuz I'm
       alone. You know what!! I'm gonna go with you guys!! Hey you don't need to
       make such a face!!"

 Rose: "Just leave her alone. Let's go."

 Meru: "Hold on!! Do you guys know where the hideout is?"

 Dart: "It's somewhere in the Valley of Corrupted Gravity, isn't it?"

 Meru: "Wow, how naive!! You make it sound easy, but you cannot go through such
       a mell of a hess kind a place without a person like me whose totally
       knowledgeable and totally pretty! Besides, you need the Permission of
       the King, just to enter the valley! Don't ya know that!?"

 Shana: "What are we going to do Dart? This girl is serious."

 Dart: R1 -> We cannot take you.
       R2 -> Oh well, you can come.

       R1: "We cannot take you."

           Meru: "Why is that!?"

           Dart: "It's too dangerous for you."

           Meru: "Don't treat me like a kid!! It's not fair! I wanna go with
                 you guys!! I wanna rescue Lynn!!"

       R2: [see below.]

 Dart: "Oh well, you can come."

 Rose: "Are you serious?"

 Dart: "We can trust her intentions to rescue Lynn. Besides we don't
       know the place. We might need a guide."

 Meru: "Right!! He's completely right!! Now, let's go! Beautiful dancer Meru,
       and friends, form a posse for dealing with the Gehrich Gang!!"

[Everyone arrives after a trip through the Barrens.]

 Albert: "We need the permission of the Tiberoan King to enter the Valley of
         Corrupted Gravity.:

 Dart: "Have you met him?"

 Albert: "I think I met him several times when I was little."

 Dart: "If the king remembers you, it'll be quick."

 Meru: "That's our king! Dignity, huh?"

 Albert: "I am not going to reveal my identity. I am not traveling as the King
         of Serdio. I am traveling as your companion, and Lavitz's friend."

[At the castle gate...]

 Meru: "Hey! Can you get out of our way!?"

 Giant Gate Keeper: "No way. No strangers can get through here."

 Meru: "Never!?"

 Giant Gate Keeper: "Never."

 Meru: "That big man is blocking our way. I'm gonna take care of that."

[She runs into him.]

 Meru: "Ouch!"

 Giant Gate Keeper: "I, I didn't do anything. You bumped into me by yourself.
                    You can't enter the castle by doing that."

 Meru: "Hey big belly! Why can't you let us in!? Hey Al! You are a king!! Can
       you do something about it!?"

 Albert: ("Shhh! That's secret!")

 Meru: "Aw! Come on! Dart! Do something!"

 Dart: "There is no way you can let us in?

 Giant Gate Keeper: "There are lots of bandits walking around. I was told to
                    never let anybody in."

 Shana: "Can we at least send a message to the King?"

 Giant Gate Keeper: "You are...pretty...."

 Shana: "Wh, What did you say?"

 Giant Gate Keeper: "Oops, I am on duty. I cannot let you in. I cannot let
                    strangers in."

 Meru: "What are we gonna do?"

 Dart: R1 -> (Should we break through?)
       R2 -> (Let's retreat now.)

       R1: ("Should we break through?")

           Rose: ("We are not criminals.")

           Meru: "We are breaking through! I'm gonna whack that belly!"

           Dart: "Stop it! I was kidding!"

           Meru: "Yeh!!"

           [Meru goes flying.]

           Giant Gate Keeper: "What are you doing?"

           Meru: "Ouch!"

           Giant Gate Keeper: "I told you so."

           [He blows his whistle.]

           Giant Gate Keeper: "Don't treat them rough. Just kick them out of
                              town."

           [They get shown the door.]

           Dart: "It's no good. We have to think of some other way."

       R2: ("Let's retreat now.")

           Haschel: ("It's a sober judgement.")

           Giant Gate Keeper: "Oh! Finally you are leaving! Come back if you
                              can find someone to vouch for you."

           Albert: "Nello the Green Planner. Do you think he knows somebody
                   in the royal family?"

           Haschel: "How about Kaffi!?"

           Dart: "Let's go back downtown okay?"

[Everyone crashes at the item shop.]

 Fester: "Hmmm... It's a little expensive... If I curtail food... Oh, Dart. Are
         you looking for something?"

 Dart: "No, I am not."

 Fester: "Oh, you look troubled. I would like to say I can help you, but I am a
         little busy now. It will be over soon. I need some materials on stars
         for my research. I have to look in a couple of more places. I have to
         go now. When I finish my errand, I'll be available. Ask me whatever you
         want."

[Dart follows him to the castle entrance.]

 Fester: "Oh boy. We run into each other again. Was your problem solved yet?"
 
 Dart: "Not yet. I guess, you are the only person we can ask, Fester."

 Fester: "I see. Fine. I have finished my errand. You can come to my house and
         talk."

[Back at Fester's digs...]

 Fester: "Gehrich Gang, I see. They must have taken one of your most important
         possessions, if you are thinking of venturing directly into their
         hideout."

 Dart: "It's not just a memento. It means more than that to me."

 Meru: "We're gonna rescue Lynn, too!"

 Fester: "I understand. Shall we go to the castle? I can take care of it. I
         have a side business in addition to being an astronomer that lets me
         freely enter the castle."

 Meru: "What are you doin' Fester?"

 Dart: R1 -> He is from royalty.
       R2 -> He is a governor.

       R1: "He is from royalty."

           Meru: "Wow!!"

           Fester: "No, I am not. I think it's Mr. Albet who is....from the
                   class of royalty rather than me."

           Albert: "No, no, I don't think so! Anyway, aren't you the governor of
                   Princess Lisa, Mr. Fester?"

           Fester: "Yes I am. You can enter the castle by mentioning my name."

       R2: "He is a governor."

           Fester: "Yes I am. You can enter the castle by mentioning my name."

           Meru: "Oh. Can't you answer some other way than that? That's boring."

           Dart: "You, you think so?"

[The town bell rings.]

 Fester: "It's time to go. Let's head to the Twin Castle. Follow me."

[With Fester, the party gets an audience with King Zior.]

 Fester: "I am here, Your Majesty."

 King Zior: "Oh, Fester! Please take care of my dear Princess Lisa for today!
            By the way, I think I have some problem with my eyes. I see many
            Festers."

 Fester: "King Zior... There is only one of me. These people are my friends,
         Your Majesty."

 King Zior: "Oh, indeed there is only one Fester! And, what is their request?"

 Albert: "We are here to requrest permission to enter the Valley of Corrupted
         Gravity."

 King Zior: "Hmm... Fester...I think I've heard of the 'Valley of Corrupted
            Gravity'... Was it my imagination?"

 Fester: "King Zior... Your ears are fine too. These people need to talk to the
         Gehrich Gang so they would like to go to the Valley of Corrupted
         Gravity."

 King Zior: "Oh, you too! Well, the other day, a young man named Lynn came to
            me for the same reason. It seems being a daredevil is trendy
            nowadays."

 Dart: "We are not going there for a picnic."

 King Zior: "You understand all the risks. Fine. Servant! Bring the pass for
            them!" [Acquired Pass for the Valley of Corrupted Gravity] "Be
            careful!"

 Dart: "I appreciate this Your Majesty."

 King Zior: "It is late already. Why don't you relax in the castle."

[Everyone rests in the castle.]

 Fester: "I am going back to work. Princess Lisa's studies are going very well
         by herself."

[As the party tries to leave...]

 Lady's Maid Libria: "Excuse me, Your Majesty Albert. I am Libria, the Lady's
                     maid for Princess Lisa. Princess Lisa had me call you and
                     your company."

 Albert: "...Princess Lisa knew of our visit."

 Lady's Maid Libria: "She speaks with the stars and knows the future. Astrology
                     shows her the way. This way please."

 Dart: "What is going on?"

 Albert: "We will find out when we meet Princess Lisa."

[Up at the princess's room...]

 Lisa: "Welcome, Albert, the King of Serdio. I am Lisa, the younger sister of
       Emille. I have invited you here because I have a favor to ask of you."

 Meru: "Hey wait a minute! How does she know he's a king?"

 Dart: "Albert was talking about it a moment ago, wasn't he? Princess Lisa found
       out about it through astrology."

 Haschel: "Hold there! What the heck is astrology?"

 Shana: "It is the telling of a person's fortune from the location of the stars.

 Lisa: *giggle*.... "You have such amusing friends."

 Dart: "Please continue."

 Lisa: "It is about my sister Emille."

 Albert: "What has happened to the princess? I cannot believe that's her normal
         self...."

 Lisa: "Well, it started a half year ago. Back then, my sister Emille was very
       king, and my...or everyone in the country admired her. It all started
       when the two of us went horseback riding. Suddenly, my sister Emille's
       horse bucked and ran away to the forest."

 Shana: "What about Princess Emille?"

 Lisa: "It seemed that my sister lost consciousness, and couldn't control the
       horse. I chased her with my vassals. My sister was on the ground in the
       forest. Fortunately, she didn't have any injuries. Everybody felt
       profound relief. However, when my sister Emille came to, she was a 
       completely different person. Everyone says it is because she hit herself
       on her head, however, something more than her language and attitude was
       wrong. It ws as if she was a different person..."

 Albert: "Does anybody doubt the change? How about King Zior?"

 Lisa: "No, instead he was happy to see my sister Emille become so active... I
       heard you are heading to the Valley of Corrupted Gravity. And I have a
       favor to ask. I would like you to find out about the relationship between
       my sister Emille and the Gehrich Gang."

 Dart: "The relationship between Princess Emille and the Gehrich?"

 Lisa: "Tiberoa appears to be peaceful, however, we are having a serious
       problem. It is infested with bandits."

 Meru: "Donau is totally awful now!"

 Lisa: "I know. However, it used to be different. Yes, until a half year ago."

 Haschel: "It was the same time Princess Emille began acting strange."

 Lisa: "Astrology also says there is some kind of relationship between my sister
       and the Gehrichs. And one more thing... The stars told me 'Never hand
       over the Moon'. My sister will celebrate her 20th birthday soon. At the
       ceremony, the Tiberoan national treasure, the Moon Dagger will be passed
       down to my sister Emille. I assume the 'Moon' refers to that."

 Albert: "The second divine moon object."

 Dart: "It is linked with Lloyd."

 Lisa: "I have to find out the truth before the ceremony. About the relationship
       between my sister Emille and the Gehrich Gang. Would you please look into
       this for me?"

 Dart: R1 -> We will.
       R2 -> ...

       R1: "We will. We have no reason not to because our original intention
           was to pursue the Gehrich Gang."

       R2: "..."

           Albert: "What are you hesitating about?"

           Shana: "You are thinking about Lloyd aren't you?"

           Dart: "I know there is no reason to say no. But I'm worried if I can
                 fight with him without having a Dragoon Spirit...?"

           Haschel: "You...since when have you become such a wimp? Or...maybe
                    you've grown too accustomed to using the power?"

           Dart: "I understand...Princess Lisa."

 Lisa: "Thank you. I appreciate it."

 Voice: "The dinner will be ready soon Your Highness." 

 Lisa: "Oh, is it already that late? Oh, I forgot about Fester! I left him in
       my room! I am expecting you there."

 Lady's Maid Libria: "King Zior also said to invite everyone. When you are ready
                     please let me know. I will take you to the dining room."

 Meru: "I was totally right about coming with you Dart!! I was expecting these
       things to happen!!"

 Haschel: "Right!? I am looking forward to it! I wonder what I can feast on
          there!"

[Everyone begins their dinner with the King.]

 King Zior: "Please make yourself at home! Haa Haa Haa! Isn't she a great eater!
            It seems when girls become 20 years old they develop quite an
            appetite! Oh, Fester? Would you introduce our guests to Emille?"

 Fester: "Yes, Your Majesty."

 Emille: "Oh, I didn't know you were here, Fester. Are you still wasting time
         on useless things? Those things with moons or stars?"

 Fester: "L, let me introduce my friends, Your Highness! This..."

 Emille: "You and you. What's your name?"

 Dart: "I"m Dart."

 Albert: "I am Albert. It is a pleasure to meet you."

 Emille: "You are cute guys. I like you."

 Fester: "I am glad to hear that. And these..."

 Emille: "I didn't ask you about the others."

 King Zior: "Oh, please don't be insulted. Emille is a bit shy."

 Emille: "I'm not shy! I don't like them. That's all! Hey!! Bring me more food
         will ya!!"

 Lisa: "Please enjoy your meal. I assume you are leaving early tomorrow morning?

 Emille: "Where are you going?"

 King Zior: "Well, they are saying that they want to go to the Valley of
            Corrupted Gravity. They understand the risk so I have granted them
            permission."

 Emille: "Huh! Stupid guys!"

 King Zior: "Come on! Enjoy yourself! Let yourself go tonight!"

[Later on, after the dinner, everyone lounges by the balcony.]

 Albert: "Can people change that much from only the shock of falling off a
         horse?"

 Haschel: "I can produce the same impact with my fist."

 Shana: "It won't work!"

 Meru: "Then with my hammer!"

 Dart: "It won't work either."

 Lisa: "Everyone, it is getting late. Please stay at the castle tonight."

 Albert: "Thank you for your concern."

 Lisa: "It is fine. It is me asking you the favor. Have a good night."

 Lady's Maid Libria: "This way please. I will show you the way to your bedroom."

[Over at the guest room...]

 Shana: *sigh* "You don't like such a formal feast, do you Dart? Aren't you
        tired?"

 Dart: "I would rather practice with my sword."

 Meru: "I didn't have enoguh to eat! Princess Emille stole my portion!"

 Haschel: "Me neither. And I was looking forward to it."

 Albert: "I understand Princess Lisa's hardship. But, Princess Emille might
         lead us to Lloyd. The Moon Dagger is our guide."

 Dart: "Everything leads to the Gehrich."

 Shana: "It all started with the Dragoon Spirit."

 Dart: "We have to get it back quick or it'll be too risky."

 Rose: "You shouldn't have let it be taken to start with, then."

 Haschel: "You are harsh as always. There are some other ways to say that. Why
          don't you show a little smile at least?"

 Rose: "I don't remember...how to smile. Good night."

 Shana: "I'm getting sleepy too."

 Albert: "I'll get some sleep too."

 Dart: "Good night, Shana."

 Haschel: "Being with you young people reminds me of Claire."

 Meru: "What's she like?"

 Haschel: "She had a strong will. She suffered by herself, decided things by
          herself."

 Meru: "Same here!"

 Haschel: "Call me a fond parent, but she looked like her beautiful mother.
          She was a strong fighter, but her heart was too sweet. It's the
          complete opposite of Meru."

 Meru: "I am a strong fighter too!"

 Dart: "That's not the point."

 Haschel: "I only taught her how to use her fists, but I wish I could see her
          in a wedding dress."

 Meru: "You can see me in a wedding dress!! I'll be totally beautiful in that!
       Don't you think?"

 Dart: R1 -> Yes, I think so.
       R2 -> I don't know.

       R1: "Yes, I think so."

           Meru: "Right!? Happy sleeping time!"

       R2: "I don't know."

           Haschel: "I don't know either. Mature does not have a mature charm."

           Meru: "Hey hey! Boring! I'm gonna go to bed!!"

 Haschel: "I'll get some sleep too."

[The next morning everyone leaves for the Valley.]

[After being let in, the party surveys the odd, fractured, floating landscape]

 Meru: "Oh! It's not bad at all! I was expecting to have some fun!"

 Dart: "!! Meru, watch out!!"

[A rock bounds upward and almost crushes Meru.]

 Meru: "Oh my god!!"

 Rose: "It still has the backwash from the Dragon Campaign. The collision of
       the magic power of the Dragoons and Winglies can distort nature quite
       a bit. I don't think you're gonna have 'fun' from now on."

 Meru: "I'm not just following you guys for that! Let's go guys! We gotta find
       the Gehrichs!

[After going through a bit...]

 Dart: "!!"

 Rose: "What a welcome we got.

 Shana: "Oh, look!"

 Dart: "Virage!!"

 Meru: "Huh? What the heck is that?"

 Rose: "What is worse is it has the complete form...."

 Meru: "Guys! I'm asking you what is that!"

 Dart: "It might be the real cuase of the distortion of the valley."

 Meru: "Wow! That's scary."

 Dart: "Shana?"

 Shana: "Here it comes again. I hear the voice, again. Don't go! It's too
        dangerous to go!"

 Meru: "Yes, we gotta go. We're not gonna make it to the Gehrichs without
       going over this thingamajig. What are you looking at!? You guys don't
       trust me!?"

 Dart: "Is there no way but to advance?

 Shana: "I can't let you go! If we advance we will have to fight again!"

 Meru: "Hey, nothing can be done without meeting the Gehrichs, right? What
       about Lynn, Dart's memento, and this Lloyd that you are looking for."

 Dart: "Worrying won't help. Besides, it might not start to move this time."

[It starts to move.]

 Shana: "Everybody run!!

[The Virage almost falls over the edge, but turns towards Shana.]

 Dart: "Shana!!

[Light comes out of Shana and pushes Virage off the cliff.]

 Rose: "Shana! What on earth are you...to Virage?

 Shana: "I don't know... I don't know anything!!"

 Dart: "There is no more Virage!!"

 Shana: "Da-rt. It's okay now.

 Rose: (The power that can awake the sleep of 11,000 years.... Is that rancor
        against us? The rancor against Dragoons awakening the Virage!? Or....
        is that something to do with Shana?)

 Dart: (Shana....)

---

 Shana: "After you came back, Dart, a lot of things started to happen. But we
        have overcome everything, and we will continue. Because I am not alone
        now. Everybody is with me and, I have you...Dart. You make me strong.
        I can do it! I can leave any time!"

---

 Haschel: "Shana has changed. She has obtained more strength."

 Dart: "I agree."

 Haschel: "I don't know what is happening to Shana, but she is trying to solve
          that alone. She has become a woman."

 Dart: "I guess so."

 Haschel: "It's not the time to talk about this but.... It's time for you to
          change."

 Dart: "Me?"

 Haschel: "It's too hard on Shana if you continue to treat her like a mere
          baby sister forever. Doesn't matter. Your Dragoon Spirit is waiting.
          We have to think about going.

---

 Albert: "We were saved by Shana. But it seems that this is not that simple
         for her. The existence of Dragoons and the existence of Virages should
         have ended 11,000 years ago. But they were brought to life around us.
         I think we have to go forward to find out more about this."

---

 Rose: "There must be something wrong with Shana, and she must definitely see
       it. Everybody knows that."

---

 Meru: "Thanks for my guiding you, it was totally thrilling wasn't it!? Now we
       can go straight to the Gehrich Gang! We can go rescue Lynn!"

[After talking to everyone...]

 Dart: "Let's go everybody! The Gehrichs will be just ahead!"

[At a large gate...]

 Dart: "I sense the enemy's presence."

[Arrows come his way.]

 Dart: "!!"

 Gehrich Gang B: "I don't know what you want, and how did you manage to get
                 all the way here!?"

 Gehrich Gang D: "We should play with them a little!!"

 Gehrich Gang C: "Yo men!! Don't kill'em!! That's what our boss said!! But...."

 Gehrich Gang A: "Why don't we stomp them till they hate being alive!! Haa Haa
                 Haa! Shoot'em!!

[Dart tries to escape further in, but a door shuts.]

 Gehrich Gang A: "You thought it would be that easy, huh!? Shoot'em!!"

[They try to leave again, but enemies block their way.]

 Gangster B: "Hee Hee Hee!! Where are you goin'!?"

[After missing their strikes awhile...]

 Gehrich Gang A: "Darn!! Those nimble rats!!"

 Gehrich Gang B: "Yo, brother!! Take care of them will ya!!"

 Gangster A: "Yeah! I got'em!! It's been a while. I'm aching to get'em!!"

 Dart: "Let us meet with your boss!! We have to talk!!"

 Gangster A: "There will be no 'talkin'! You've already ruined our territory!"

 Haschel: "!! That pose, it must be from the Rouge School!"

 Gangster A: "What!? How do you know about that!?"

 Haschel: "That's my question! How did you find out about the Rouge School!?"

 Gangster A: "Humph!! Who cares!! If you really wanna laern about it, tussle
             with me!"

[They all get defeated.]

 Bandit 1: "R, Run!!"

 Bandit 2: "Yeek!!"

 Haschel: "The Rouge School of Martial Arts is a tradition found only in my
          village. All the people who use the Rouge style from outside of my
          village must have a connection there. Do you know a woman fighter
          called Claire?"

 Gangster: "I, I don't know any such woman! I learned it from my boss, Gehrich!

 Haschel: "Gehrich...."

 Gangster: "My boss used to study it seriously, but was kicked out 20 years
           ago. Then he became a bandit!"

 Haschel: "Kicked out.... Now I know!! That Gehrich!! He must be the man who
          was once my disciple!!"

 Dart: "He is over there, right?"

 Gangster: "Y, yeah! But! You cannot defeat my boss! My boss is ten times as
           strong as me!!"

 Haschel: "It's my fist that decides if I can defeat him or not!!"

[The gangster flees.]

 Haschel: "We're on our way."

 Dart: "What are you doing?"

 Haschel: "I'll show you what the real Rouge School is like. YAAAAAAAA!!
          YAA!!!!"

[A single punch demolishes the huge barrier to Gehrich.]

 Haschel: "Shall we?"

[Continuing on a ways...]

 Albert: "It seems obvious there are bandits hiding."

 Dart: "Let's start looking here."

 Shana: "What's wrong?"

 Haschel: "I think I did too much. My back hurts. Don't worry. I'll be all
          right if I rest a little."

 Meru: "Men! You should've thought about your age! Go ahead, I'll take care of
       him."

 Haschel: "Hm. You will? I think I can wait here by myself...."

 Meru: "No way! We don't know when they will come back!"

 Dart: "We gotta leave them, then. We'll be back if something happens."

[Dart and his crew leave Meru and Haschel to wait.]

 Meru: "If they come back, I'll destroy them! Be good, Haschel. Ah...."

[Haschel smacked her and knocked her out.]

 Haschel: "Sorry about that."

[He runs off on his own into Gehrich's lair.]

 Dart: "I guess there are only Rock Fireflies here. Meru!! What happened!?"

 Meru: "Ouch... Um... Something bumped into me and... Oh boy? Where is Haschel?

 Dart: "Did he go by himself?"

[In Gehrich's chamber...]

 Mappi: "Hee hee hee!! I cannot stop laughing! Boss! They came all the way
        here! I guess that pebble I took was super important."

 Gehrich: "There are too many people who don't care about their lives. The
          snotnose from Donau too."

 Mappi: "Let's just kill that kid! I don't care that he's the son of the Mayor!
        I got that woman with us now! Now is a good chance, cuz the woman is in
        control of the palace.... It'll be a piece of cake to take over this
        country...."

 Gehrich: "My fist doesn't desire that kind of thing. I just want to live free.
          If she wants the power, I'll give it to her."

 Mappi: "Boss!! You're gonna be taken advantage of, being a wimp like that!!"

 Haschel: "Gehrich, you haven't changed a bit."

 Mappi: "Who are you!?"

 Haschel: "Shut up, you small fry."

 Mappi: "What did you say!? Boss? Is something wrong?"

 Gehrich: "M, Master...."

 Mappi: "Master of the Rouge School?"

 Haschel: "Head of the bandits? How low you have fallen. I was right to kick
          you out."

 Gehrich: "Yes!! You were right!! Thanks to you I obtained freedom. I am not
          the person you remember!!"

 Haschel: "Martial arts is your heart. When you hit, your fist aches, and your
          heart aches. Except, it seems your heart has forgotten the ache."

 Gehrich: "...."

 Mappi: "Shut up!! I'll shut you up!!"

[Dart slaps Mappi away from Haschel.]

 Mappi: "!!"

 Dart: "Have I kept you waiting!?"

 Meru: "It's not fair leaving me like that!!"

 Haschel: "You...."

 Gehrich: "Then why don't you remind me of your so-called aching heart!!"

[The party defeats Mappi & Gehrich.]

 Mappi: "I'll smash you!!"

[The room shakes, and part of a statue falls towards Haschel.]

 Gehrich: "Please run!! Master!!"

 Albert: "It's hopeless!!"

[All of a sudden, Kongol catches the debris and throws it to the wayside.]

 Kongol: "Whhhoooooaaaaahhhhh!!!"

 Dart: "Kongol!?"

 Haschel: "Gehrich.... Now I seem to be helping you remember the ache in your
          heart with my fist."

 Dart: "Will he make it?"

 Haschel: "Barely, at least for now. But if the Giganto over there hadn't
          saved us, he would be completely dead by now...and all of us too."

 Dart: "Kongol, why are you here? And, why did you save us?"

 Rose: "It's a strange way to get revenge on us. What's going on in your mind?"

 Kongol: "You enemy no more. Here Holy place of Gigantos. Me survivor."

 Shana: "What about the other Gigantos?"

 Kongol: "Human killed us. They stole Giganto's treasure. Human thinks other
         species can die. Human selfish creature."

 Albert: "That was the reason why you joined with the human's war?"

 Kongol: "It's for Emperor Doel. Me still small and ran. He saved Kongol. He
         fought against bad people. Kongol comes with you. So Kongol is here.
         Emperor Doel say he make world where every species equal. World needs
         strong leader. Whether you can be leader, Kongol will watch to the
         end. Giganto's sadness should not be repeated...."

 Rose: "There is no such world where 'equal' exists. What we have is killing
       and being killed. That's it."

 Dart: "Wait! I have my own objectives. I am just continuing my journey towards
       them. I don't think I make a good 'leader'."

 Kongol: "You defeat Emperor Doel. Strong Strong Power. Stronger than Emperor
         Doel. Kongol wants to see where the power goes."

 Meru: "Sounds good doesn't it? Cuz more people makes us feel more secure.
       Besides.... I understand how he feels to be attracted to you, Dart.
       There must be something wherever you go. I still dunno what it is
       but...I wanna be with you and do something. Don't you guys feel that
       way?"

 Dart: "...Okay. We are friends now."

 Kongol: "...Friend. It sounds good."

 Meru: "We did it!"

 Rose: "You have forgotten the most important thing."

 Meru: "Come on! We gotta find Lynn!"

 Shana: "The Dragoon Spirit too!

 Kongol: "What you are looking for may be down there. You push the thing up
         here."

 Dart: "Is this it?"

[A button on the throne shows a room below it.]

 Gehrich: "Ugh...!!"

 Haschel: "Gehrich, you have come around."

 Gehrich: "I'm glad...to receive your fist, Master...."

 Haschel: "Shut up. Talking makes you die."

 Gehrich: "I gotta tell you...this or...I'll die as a real fool.... It's about
          the Princess Emille in the Castle.... She's...a fake.... That woman
          was switched.... Ugh...!!"

 Haschel: "Don't say anything!"

 Gehrich: "Ugh...!! The real one is hidden in...the castle......."

[Gehrich dies, and Haschel carries him.]

 Haschel: "I'll catch up to you later. I have to entomb him."

[Down in the treasury...]

 Meru: "Lynn!! Where are you!?"

 Lynn: "Meru!! Are you here to rescue me!?"

 Meru: "Of course! Kate't totally worried about ya! Oh no? I'm letting you out
       now!!"

 Albert: "This opens it. If your brawn doesn't work, you should use your brain.

 Lynn: "Meru! Thanks!! Do you know these people?"

 Meru: "These are my pals! We are traveling together for a variety of reasons!"

 Lynn: "You came all the way to such a dangerous place.... What great people!!
       Thank you!! People's courage hasn't dried up yet!"

 Dart: "You showed it yourself."

 Meru: "But, why did you come alone?! I had lots of things to say to the gang
       too!"

 Lynn: "I wanted to solve this by myself. Besides, I thought I might be able
       to talk to Gehrich if he hadn't changed. But something had changed.
       Probably, the person who joined him a half year ago changed Gehrich."

 Albert: "And that person is now assuming the form of Princess Emille. We need
         to go back to the castle quickly."

 Rose: "That's after we find the stolen Dragoon Spirit."

 Lynn: "Any stolen goods should be around here. They were throwing all the 
       stolen items in here."

 Shana: "Now, let's split up and look for it."

 Dart: "I got it!!"

 Meru: "Wow!!"

 Shana: "It seems happy to meet you again." [Acquired Red-Eye Dragoon Spirit]

 Dart: "Now let's go back to Fletz and see Princess Lisa and tell her
       everything!"

[Back upstairs...]

 Kongol: "Did you find thing?"

 Haschel: "It seems you found both Lynn and the Dragoon Spirit."

[Back at The Barrens...]

 Meru: "Hey! We'll be in Donau soon! Go home quick to her, you handsome man!
       Kate's worrying!"

 Lynn: "Dart, I cannot thank you enough. But I have to say it, thank you. Now
       Donau is saved."

 Dart: "It's just the beginning. The Mayor must be taking action now, in
       response to your courage, Lynn."

 Meru: "Finally. That Mayor is taking action."

 Dart: "Thank you for your guidance, Meru."

 Meru: "What are you talking about? It's not over yet."

 Dart: "What?"

 Meru: "Dart's journey won't be easy. What you guys do is not normal. Monsters
       like Virage appear, Dragoons, Gigantos. I thought they only existed in
       fairy tales. I can't explain it, but I think there'll be a lot of things
       I can help you with. So, why don't we go to Fletz now? We can't
       procrastinate like this, right!?"

 Dart: "It'll continue to be like a traveling three-ring circus."

 Meru: "All right!!"

 Lynn: "I'm going."
 
 Dart: "Say hello to Kate."

 Lynn: "Please come to our wedding! I'm having it tomorrow if it's possible.
       Bon voyage!!"

[Everyone hotfoots it to Fletz.]

| Ch. 2 - 27 - Twin Castle at Fletz (III)                                TCF3 |
o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

[Everyone arrives in Fletz as the 20th-birthday celebration takes place.]

 Dart: "That sound, it can't be."

 Albert: "It seems the ceremony for Princess Emille's coming of age celebration
         has already started."

 Meru: "We just found out that Princess Emille is a fake."

 Shana: "It doesn't necessarily mean that the Moon Dagger has already been
        passed on."

 Dart: "Let's go!"

[Everyone scoots into the palace.]

 Giant Gate Keeper: "Bad people! Coming in without permission. Just kidding.
                    I excuse you, because today is such a happy day."

 Dart: "When did it start?"

 Giant Gate Keeper: "A moment ago. But just asking doesn't mean you have an
                    invitation. It's so packed you couldn't fit a penny in.
                    Look."

[A weird guard is up top.]

 Giant Gate Keeper: "She suddenly got a lot of hanger-ons. There are so many
                    new faces that I have never seen befpre. amd according to
                    rumor, they used to be bandits. See, bad attitude, right?
                    They call themselves knights, but nobody can say anything
                    because it's Princess Emille. Oh!! Don't tell anybody about
                    this! And I'll let you in.

[The guy leaves.]

 Bandit Knight A: "Who the hell are you? They're busy with an important
                  ceremony. Don't even think about bothering them."

 Dart: "They are not decent knights..."

 Bandit Knight A: "Can't you see our armor!? We are the authentic Knights of
                  Tiberoa!"

 Dart: "Is Princess Emille in there?"

 Bandit Knight A: "Whoa! You can't go in there. It's not a place for commoners
                  like you. Cuz it's the birthday of our princess! Do you
                  really think you can get away with making a scene like that!?

 Dart: "It's special today.


 Bandit Knight B: "Are, are you gonna...make an enemy of all of Tiberoa!?"

 Albert: ("Seems like bluffing is working.")

 Shana: "Can you send a message to Princess Lisa?"

 Bandit Knight A: "She's not here! And it's the birthday of her own sis!! I
                  guess she is keeping herself cooped up in her room!"

 Dart: "I'll be back. Then I'm going to get past you."

[Up in the Star Tower, where Princess Lisa awaits...]

 Lisa: "I have been waiting for you, everyone. I am ready. Please tell me the
       truth..."

 Dart: "The Princess Emille attending the ceremony is a fake. A woman who is
       helping the bandits made the switch a half year ago."

 Albert: "The star of Princess Lisa has shown the truth."

 Lisa: "Oh thank god... It is impossible for my sister Emille to have such an
       attitude. Now, where is my true sister, Emille!?"

 Albert: "It seems she is confined somewhere in this castle."

 Lisa: "Confined...somewhere in here?"

 Haschel: "It was the last words of a dying man... We can trust him."

 Dart: "It all started out at the time of a horseback ride a half year ago...
       By taking advantage of the confusion, the mysterious woman switched
       herself with Princess Emille, and took over Tiberoa with the cooperation
       of bandits..."

 Albert: "It's an amazing plot."

 Rose: "The finale was to be the Coming of Age ceremony when the Moon Dagger
       was passed down..."

 Dart: "Princess Lisa! We have to find Princess Emille or we cannot stop the
       ceremony!"

 Shana: "Is it possible to use astrology to find Princess Emille!?"

 Lisa: "Let me try."

[Lisa uses a power in her hands that glows radiantly.]
 
 Lisa: "... All the stars are refusing to tell their story... As if a mist is
       covering the night sky."

 Dart: "Then we just have to search every nook and cranny..."

 Lisa: "Let me come with you. When I am with you, you may be able to avoid some
       trouble."

[Back in the main hall...]

 Bandit Knight: "Oops! Princess Lisa!! Are you already feeling better... Hee...

 Lisa: "Shall I go in?"

 Bandit Knight: "We cannot..."

 Dart: "Why is that?"

 Bandit Knight: "We were told that nobody, not even Princess Lisa, can come in
                til the Moon Dagger is passed on..."

[The party infiltrates the Moon Tower's summit.]

 Bandit Knight: "If you wanna talk to Princess Emille, go to the Chamber of
                the Sun! Oh, Pr, Princess Lisa...!? How are you feeling...?"

 Lisa: "I feel much better. I have to go into my sister Emille's room. Can I
       come in?"

 Shana: "It's far away from the bottom of the tower."

 Rose: "Screams won't be heard down there... Why don't we settle this here?"

 Bandit Knight: "Damn it!!"

[They flee.]

 Lisa: "Shall we go? If the real sister Emille is in this castle, she must be
       somewhere in this room."

[Emille's room looks normal, but...]

 Lisa: "It is awful..."

 Dart: "Somebody looted the place..."

 Albert: "That makes this room even more suspicious. We might find something
         here to help us find Princess Emille...."

 Kongol: "Kongol go outside, watch."

 Meru: "Kongol is too big for this room. I feel sorry for him. I'm gonna go
       wait with Kongol!"

 Haschel: "I'm going too. There are too many people in this room."

 Dart: "Let's split up and search."

[Dart inspects the painting of Emille.]

 Dart: "It is a portrait of Princess Emille. Wow!!"

[Everyone gets sucked inside.]

 Haschel: "What was that noise!?"

 Meru: "There's nobody here!

[In some weird quasidimensional space...]

 Dart: "Where are we...? What on earth has happened!?"

 Rose: "It seems a Magical space was created in the painting. It seems
       peculiar..."

 Dart: "Is this 'magic'!?"

 Voice: "Dart! Where are you!?"

 Dart: "We are in the painting!!"

 Voice: "Haschel! They must be talking about this!"

 Albert: "Don't touch the painting! It seems to be linked to the world over
         here!"

 Voice: "I got it!

 Dart: "Look!!"

[The real Emille is right nearby.]

 Lisa: "Emille!! Sister Emille!!"

 Dart: "It is too dangerous to go!!"

 Albert: "Oh... She is Princess Emille..."

 Rose: "It is linked with a different dimension... It is too dangerous to
       jump over."

 Albert: "She is right in front of us.... How can we?"

[Dart inspects a weird white light on the wall, making a bridge.]

 Dart: "We can cross now!!"

 Albert: "Princess Emille!"

 Lisa: "Sister! Sister!! Sister Emille!! Please wake up!! I cannot wake her!"

 Albert: "Let me do it! Princess Emille!! Wake up!! Wake up at once or
         something irrevocable will happen to Tiberoa!!"

 Emille: "Ah... Ahh..."

 Lisa: "Oh Emille!!"

[The spell's broken.]

 Emille: "Lisa... And you...? Where...am I?"
 
 Lisa: "You have been sleeping for the past six months since we went for a
       horseback ride, sister."

 Emille: "A half year? I was sleeping...the half year since the horseback
         ride... What about the Coming of Age ceremony!? Yes...what about
         the Moon Dagger!?"

 Dart: "It is about to be passed over to another person!"

 Emille: "Can you explain that to me? About this other person and you?"

[Dart does.]

 Emille: "It seems I've troubled you a lot due to my absence. Let us go to the
         Chamber of the Sun. We have to let people know the truth."

[They all hurry to the Chamber of the Sun.]

 Bandit Knight: "Oops!! It's Princess E, Emille...!?"

 Emille: "Did I make it in time for the ceremony?"

 Bandit Knight: "Ye, Yes!!"

 Emille: "Shall we go?"

[In the throne room...]

 King Zior: "You've been filled with 20 years of experience since you came into
            this world. You have reached the age that deserves the succession
            of the Moon Dagger as an heir to the throne of Tiberoa. Never 
            forget the blessings of the Sun, Moon and Stars. Anybody!! Are
            there any objections!? I assume this silence to be the approval of
            the succession."

 Dart: "Wait!!"

 Emille: "I have an objection to the succession!"

 King Zior: "Oh my god!? There are two Emilles!! !!"

[The fake Emille steals the Moon Dagger.]

 King Zior: "The Moon Dagger! What is going on!?"

 Dart: "King Zior! That girl is a fake!"

 Emille: "I have been put into a sleep for the last half year. During that
         time, it seems this person was making a variety of social missteps."

 Lisa: "Father! That woman was going to take over Tiberoa, by forming a
       conspiracy with the Gehrich Gang!"

 King Zior: "Oh my god!?"

 Fake Princess Emille: "Huh!! I guess you found out about everything!! Don't
                       ya think it's too late? I got this in my hand."

 Dart: "Look around yourself."

 Fake Princess Emille: "You think I'm cornered, huh?"

 Dart: "Who are you?"

 Fake Princess Emille: "I guess I cannot run in this stuffy dress. This will
                       be a treat! Let me show ya my true self!!"

 Dart: "!!"

 Lenus: "Surprised, huh? This is the true self of Miss Lenus!"

 Dart: "Princess Emille!! Please leave the room with the King and Princess
       Lisa!! The Gehrich Gang has fallen apart! Give us the Moon Dagger!"

 Albert: "The only chance you have is to give up."

 Lenus: "A girl in love doesn't know the meaning of the words 'give up'! I
        have managed to get this for my love. I won't give this up so easily."

 Rose: "I'm sorry but you don't have time to be in love anymore. Because you
       will die here."

 Lenus: "Interesting! Why don't you try!?"

 Dart: "What the heck is on her back!?"

[Lenus gets trounced.]

 Lenus: "You are not bad, I guess...."

 Albert: "Give us the Moon Dagger. Don't waste your time on this meaningless
         battle."

 Haschel: "Gehrich is already dead."

 Lenus: "Gehrich!? I didn't care about the man from the beginning! I told ya!?
        I need the Moon Dagger for my love!"

 Dart: "Admit your defeat. There is no way to escape."

 Lenus: "No way to escape, huh!? Hey you over there! What do you think of
        that!?"

 Meru: "..."

 Lenus: "Whatever! See for yourself! Is there no way to escape?!"

[She jumps over the railing and...flies away!?]

 Lenus: "Bye now!!"

 Dart: "Wait!!"

 Albert: "Oh no... She is a Wingly!?"

 Rose: "The species that dominated the bygone world... She's a survivor."

 King Zior: "'People of magic who run across the sky with wings'... Was she
            here to take it back from Humans?"

[Later on...]

 King Zior: "You are the King of Serdio, Albert. Why did you take such a risk?"

 Albert: "It might be self-gratification. However, I would like to settle my
         friend's old score, with my own hands. We are pursuing a man who
         manipulated the war with Serdio from behind the scenes. My friend was
         killed by that man. At the same time, the Moon Gem, which belonged to
         Serdio, was taken away. We have different reasons, however we are all
         linked to that man, and here we are."

 King Zior: "You said the Moon Gem. It is a legacy of the Winglies, isn't it?"

 Dart: "Could you please tell us about the Moon Dagger Your Majesty?"

 King Zior: "It was after the Dragon Campaign. Humans defeated the Winglies
            and built Serdio, Tiberoa and Mille Seseau. They say the few
            surviving Winglies sent a divine objet of the moon as a proof of
            peace to the three countries. That's all I know about the legend."

 Albert: "We have the same legend in my country. What is dangerous is that we
         Humans don't know what the divine moon object is for."

 Dart: "You mean the Winglies know everything and formed this entire
       conspiracy?"

 Emille: "Father. We have to take the Moon Dagger back. Before the stars that
         have beheld Tiberoa are lost in a shadow."

 King Zior: "It seems that girl of the Winglies got away to Illisa Bay. Now,
            it's time for an appearance by Commodore Puler. I will send the
            most powerful warship that Tiberoa has, the Queen Fury. Have
            Commodore Puler pursue her. Of course, you are more than welcome
            to be on the boat."

 Dart: "I appreciate it, Your Majesty."

 King Zior: "It was the first time I've seen a Wingly. But they seem to be
            beyond our power...so that...we might need your help."

 Emille: "Please take care of yourselves."

[The party goes to Donau's harbor.]

 Shana: "Is this a ship?"

 Kongol: "Kongol is excited. This bigger than me."

 Dart: "So, this is the Queen Fury?"

 Kayla: "!? You must be Dart!?"

 Dart: "Yes, I am, and you?"

 Kayla: "My name is Kayla! I'm a crew member on the Queen Fury! I'm getting
        the Commodore now! Commodore!! Commodore Puler!! Dart and his friends
        are here!"

 Puler: "What Kayla!? Be quiet! A man of the sea should have a big heart.
        Sometimes you listen to the waves, and cast your dreams to the ocean.
        That is a man's romance!!"

 Kayla: "Commodore! Dart and his firneds are here! You got an order from the
        King didn't you sir?"

 Puler: "Oh! You are the brave young people who routed the bandits! You deserve
        to be guests on my ship! The Queen Fury!"

 Dart : "Thank you. But we don't want to be treated as guests. We have the same
        objective, to pursue Lenus."

 Puler: "Hmmm!! I like that!!"

 Kayla: "We are ready to go, sir!!"

 Puler: "I see. Now the only thing left is for you to board. As soon as you
        are ready, we will hit the ocean!!"

 Kayla: "We have been waiting for you! Are you ready to go?
        R1 -> Please wait a little.
        R2 -> Yes.

        R1: "Please wait a little."

            Kayla: "Please hurry up! Or we will lose the person we are
                   pursuing!"

        R2: "Yes."

 Kayla: "Now, let's set sail!!"

[All aboard the Queen Fury...!]

o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

[Dart's party lazes around the ship, all in different areas. Shana is near a
 railing with some seagulls.]

 Shana: "Many things have happened. I was put in jail...and Dart came to
        rescue me. ... We were with Lavitz. And now we are here, pursuing
        Lloyd. There are so many things I don't understand. The Moon That
        Never Sets, the voice of Virage.... I wish I could fly like you
        guys. But it doesn't take me anywhere. ... ... Dart will laugh at
        me. Dart, I wonder where he went?"

[Shana eventually finds Dart on the bridge.]

 Shana: [Here you are, Dart.] "Hi, Dart. Dart?"

 Puler: "When Humans go to sea, there is a lot to think about. Friendship,
        love, life and romance! Probably Dart's heart is wandering in the
        mother ocean."

 Shana: [Such a scary face. He must be thinking about the Black Monster.]

 Dart: "Oh, Shana.... Is something wrong?"

 Shana: "I have been thinking too. About the past and future. And about you
        and me...."

 Dart: "You and me?"

 Shana: "Eventually, our journey will end."

 Dart: "Yes, eventually. But.... I wonder where we will be?"

 Shana: "I want to be next to you, Dart. But.... Nobody knows about the future.

[Shana quickly leaves.]

 Puler: "Love and sailing are alike. If you don't swim against the waves and
        just enjoy it, you will overcome it. Thinking alone is sometimes good.
        But sometimes, when you listen to others, your way will open up."

 Dart: [The Black Monster, I still don't know anything about it. Maybe, Rose
        might know something about it.]

[Dart seeks out Rose at the crow's-nest.]

 Dart: [Here you are, Rose.] "Here you are."

 Rose: "May I help you?"

 Dart: "It's about the Black Monster. I thought you might know something about
       it, Rose."

 Rose: "That's right. You are traveling just for that.... Unfortunately, I
       have nothing to tell you."

 Dart: "Oh...."

 Rose: "What are you going to do when you catch the Black Monster, what are
       you going to do with him? Kill him to avenge your parents? That'll
       satisfy your feelings?"

 Dart: "'Revenge does not generate anything.' That's what I learned from
       Lavitz. To tell the truth, I don't know what I am going to do or even
       what I want to do when I face the Black Monster. I just want to know
       what he is."

 Rose: "I see.... Well, I can tell you one thing. Do you know what is the
       source of the power of Dragoons? War is not in human nature. Humans
       fight by making themselves enter insanity. It is...the same for revenge.
       This is a tool to amplify the insanity. And this insanity is the source
       of the power of Dragoons, the Dragon Knight."

 Dart: "I didn't know that...."

 Rose: "Someday, something will happen, and if you cannot chasten your insanity,
       I wonder if you will be able to endure it, given the size of your spirit?
       Sorry. It was just nonsense."

 Dart: "It's okay. When I finish with Lloyd, I'll go on my journey to pursue the
       Black Monster. When I face him, I'll find my own answer to that."

[Dart leaves.]

 Rose: "Mine is not a 'journey'.... I'll take a walk for a change."

[She eventually finds Haschel sitting alone.]

 Rose: [Haschel....] "Are you thinking about something?"

 Haschel: "Oh, Rose. Do you want to talk about your love?"

 Rose: "I was just walking around and happened to be here."

 Haschel: "Can I ask you one thing?"

 Rose: "Sure."

 Haschel: "You, why are you with us? I heard that in the beginning it was
          Dart's Dragoon Spirit. It seems that's not all."

 Rose: "I guess.... Maybe this journey is just a little break for me...."

 Haschel: "'Break,' hmm. Well, everybody has different objectives on the
          journey. But you, you look like you're rushing yourself to death,
          with your life being run by something."

 Rose: "It's none of your business."

[Rose walks away.]

 Haschel: "I guess I was involved too much. I cannot make judgments about other
          people.

[Flashback: Haschel's home village 25 years ago. His daughter is fighting.]

 Claire: "Taa!"

 Haschel: "Claire!! Your steps during the attack are slow!! Take more precise,
          faster steps!!"

 Claire: "Yes, Father."

 Haschel: "You idiot! During the training, don't think of me as your 'Father'!
          Call me 'Master'!"

 Claire: "I am sorry, Master."

[Present-day Haschel says the next line.]

 Haschel: "Claire.... You, my daughter, were the only heir to our ancestral
          Rouge School martial art.

[Claire starts fighting again.]

 Claire: "Yaa! Here!

 Haschel: "Claire!! You cannot take over the Rouge School with such pathetic
          skills!!"

 Claire: "Daa!"

 Haschel: "You implanted a murderous intention in your fist, didn't you!?"

 Claire: "Oh Lotta.... What's wrong? Lotta? What's wrong!? Oh! Lotta!?"

 Haschel: "Get out of my sight!!"

 Claire: "Lotta...."

 Haschel: "Get out of my sight!!"

[Claire gets run off. Back on the ship.]

 Haschel: "... I shouted out of anger. I was just running away from the pain
          that we have to overcome together, as a Master and as a Father. It's
          been 20 years since I left the village pursuing Claire, but what I
          have found was only my immaturity. As time goes by, I forget the
          objectives of my journey. But Dart and the others gave me a new one.
          I think...what I am going through now is a journey to support the
          passion of young Dart and his friends. Oops! Oops! I have become too
          mushy! Well, maybe  I'll go tease Kongol! I hope he is not knocked
          out with seasickness!"

[Haschel goes to pester Kongol in the fore engine room.]

 Haschel: [Here you are, Kongol.] "What are you doing alone?"

 Kongol : "Kongol always alone."

 Haschel: "You are not now."

 Kongol : "Friends. I still don't know. Kongol is here to see if you become
          leader instead of Emperor Doel."

 Haschel: "Doel.... It was your objective for the journey, wasn't it? Hmm, then
          why don't you talk to Albert? He might know something about Doel's
          story from the past.

 Kongol : "King of Human...."

[Haschel leaves, and Kongol seeks out Albert in his room.]

 Kongol: [Human king, Albert.] "Kongol wants talk. What is friends? Dart said,
         Kongol friend. Kongol don't know. What is friend?"

 Albert: "My Uncle Doel was your friend...wasn't he?"

 Kongol: "No. I fight for Emperor Doel. To make a world where all the species
         equal."

 Albert: "Maybe we can put it this way. Maybe 'friends' are the people who walk
         the same road. People who walk together, but not led by somebody, who
         share happiness and pain."

 Kongol: "That is friends...?"

 Albert: "Yes. That is us now. Although we have different objectives, we are
         walking side by side. Kongol. You are already walking the same road
         as us."

[Kongol leaves.]

 Meru: "Boring!! Anybody, wanna hang out with me!!"

 Albert: "It's tahnks to those girls. I can continue to walk on this road. 
         Now, I'm going to socialize with my friends too."

[Albert goes to chill with Meru.]

 Albert: "You are having fun as always."

[She hits him with a pillow.]

 Meru: "I gotcha!!! Big success!!"

 Albert: "It's an awful welcome."

 Meru: "Hey, Al. You are a bit too squarish. You gotta become cool like Dart...
       Are you mad now?"

 Albert: "No. But I now have a question."

 Meru: "Wow!? The exciting question time!?"

 Albert: "Meru, when you joined us, you said 'There is still something I can
         help with'. Is that true?"

 Meru: "Um.... ILet me see. I dunno why but I really feel that way. It's true.
       But, I dunno what it is."

 Albert: "You are not just kidding it seems. Our journey is a dangerous one.
         We will not be able to succeed, if we take a lackadaisical attitude
         towards it. Therefore, I wanted to make sure one more time. I don't
         want to see anybody else dying. Now, please excuse me."

[Albert bails.]

 Meru: "Whatever. The King became too serious. Now is my big chance!! To hang
       out with Dart!!"

[She goes to the bridge.]

 Meru: [A Dart spotted! Thinking about something...? I know! Hee hee hee.]
       "Who do you think it is?"
       R1 -> Is that you Shana?
       R2 -> Of course, it's Meru!
       R3 -> No way...it's Rose?
       R4 -> Albert, don't be silly.
       R5 -> Haschel...quit that voice.
       R6 -> I doubt it, but, Kongol?

       R1: "Is that you Shana?"

           Meru: "Hey! You! Don't you have anything else to think about!?"

           Dart: "Oh, it's you Meru."

           Meru: "What is that 'Oh' about!"

           Dart: "S, sorry."

       R2: "Of course, it's Meru!"

           Meru: "Wow! How did you know?"

           Dart: "There is nobody else who does such pranks."

           Meru: "I guess so."

       R3: "No way...it's Rose?"

           Meru: "Of course."

           Dart: "Wh, what do you want?"

           Meru: "I have something to tell ya! Oops, tell you. I, like you
                 ...Dart..."

           Dart: "Wh, what are you saying? I, I have Shana."

           Meru: "Hey! Are you an idiot or what!? I have such a pretty voice,
                 it can't be anybody else but me!!"

           Dart: "M, Meru...."

           Meru: "BY THE WAY...."

           Dart: "Wha, what?"

           Meru: "Well! I won't tell Shana about this!"

       R4: "Albert, don't be silly."

           Meru: "Yes, I am. I am the King of Serdio, Albert. I am the most
                 important person in this country. I don't think so!!"

           Dart: "I knew it, it's you Meru."

       R5: "Haschel...quit that voice."

           Meru: "You, You really think so?"

           Dart: "You never change Haschel. You always like pranks."

           Meru: "I'm not, I'm not an old man."

           Dart: "S, Sorry! I was just kidding!"

           Meru: "Really?"

           Dart: "It's impossible to mistake your pretty voice."

           Meru: "Of course!

       R6: "I doubt it, but, Kongol?"

           Meru: "Yes. Kongol don't speak with forked tongue. I don't think
                 so!!"

           Dart: "I knew it was you, Meru."

 Meru: "Well! I have great news for someone who looks totally bored. Why don't
       ya come with me on an adventure on this ship?"

 Dart: "I've already seen a lot."

 Meru: "Hey! You were thinking about Shana, weren't you! If she sees you
       walking with a pretty girl like me, she would get mad, wouldn't she?"

 Dart: "Shana doesn't get mad about those things. What's with this adventure,
       suddenly?"

 Meru: ("Well.... There is something bothering me. Don't ya think Rose is
        strange?")

 Dart: "She is strange, but I don't think she is as strange as you."

 Meru: "I'm not talking about that strange! I think she has something that she
       hasn't told us or she has been involved in something shady or...."

 Dart: "Have you told us everything about you, Meru?"

 Meru: "I'm the exception!"

 Dart: "Don't talk bad about your friends. Everybody has something that they
       need to hide."

 Meru: "Sorry. I don't mean to talk bad about Rose, but she's cold to me....
       So somehow...."

 Dart: "Then you want a change of pace with an adventure?"

 Meru: "That's my Dart! You are totally cool! Come on! Now departing on Meru's
       expedition!!"

 Dart: "Meru's expedition huh...?"

[Meru joins Dart for awhile; they go towards the crow's-nest.]

 Dart: [Rose....]

[Meru goes behind her.]

 Dart: ("Don't play a prank on her. She doesn't understand jokes.")

 Meru: ("I won't!" Rose has a mysterious personality. She is always cold but
        when it comes to a critical point, she leads us in a variety of ways.")

 Dart: ("We are alive now because of Rose.")

 Meru: ("I agree.")

 Rose: "!!"

[The Phantom Ship of sailors' legend appears and strikes the Queen Fury.]

 Sailor: "!? What on earth is this?"

 Sailor: "I can't believe this."

 Puler: "What are you doing!? Get back t oyour stations and check on the
        damages!!"

 Crew: "!!"

[They salute and leave.]

 Albert: "There is a heraldry. It looks like a royal ship of Mille Seseau."

 Meru: "Is this, like a phantom ship!?"

 Dart: "Oh boy!!"

 Kayla: "Commodore!! Bad news!! It got the engine room!!"

 Puler: "Kayla!! Let them hurry to fix it!!"

 Kayla: "Aye aye sir!!"

 Dart: "We cannot pursue Lenus like this!"

 Puler: "Sometimes the ocean shows it capriciously, but I have never seen such
        a thing. Wait for a while, there is nothing we can do now."

 Rose: (Th...this ship is...)

 Haschel: "Dart!! I can't find Shana anywhere!!"

 Voice: "Yeeeeeek!!"

 Dart: "Shana!?"

[He jumps onto the phantom ship.]

 Shana: "Where am I? !? Yeeeek!!"

 Dart: "Shana!! Why did you come here!?"

 Shana: "I don't know. When I woke up, I was in here. But those knights
        protected me. They...are gone though."

 Albert: "At least you are safe and sound."

 Meru: "Come on! Come on!! We are here already so we might as well just take
       some tour here!?"

 Dart: "No way!"

 Shana: "I want to go too. I don't know why, but I want to know about this
        ship! Oh please!"

 Albert: "We'll go with them. Then, it won't be a problem."

 Dart: "Okay, but if anything happens, we gotta go back."

[In the corridor leading to the captain's bridge.]

 Ghost: "Captain, please open here. Where are you, Captain?"

[On the topdeck...]

 Dart: "!?"

 Ghost Crew A: "Help me.... The bastard...the bastard is.... I don't want to
               ...die. H...Help."

 Dart: "What!?"

 Ghost Crew A: "We...cannot make it. We'll be killed by him. I don't want to
               die. H...Help."

 Dart: "What are they talking about?"

[Dart finds a Magician Bogy, which flees after being fought.]

 Dart: "It ran away!"

[In the last room...]

 Dart: "We cornered it!! !?"

[Out of the opened treasure chest...]

 Ghost Captain: "I have a favor to ask you. Please come to the captain's cabin.

[Dart goes to said cabin.]

 Meru: "Wow! A portrait of a beautiful woman. It seems like the queen of some
       country."

 Dart: "It closed by itself!"

 Ghost Captain: "Please, help me!"

 Dart: "...!?"

 Ghost Captain: "He...killed...the crew...Nanny...knights...me...and the
                newborn princess.... Him.... The Black...Monster."

 Dart: "Wh...What!? This was done by the Black Monster too!?"

 Ghost Captain: "We couldn't protect...the princess, so we couldn't finish
                dying. Please destroy the fear...please send the souls of the
                knights to rest. AAAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHH!!!"

 Dart: "It's impossible to fully die. He killed people for no reason!"

 Rose: "..."

[On the topdeck...]

 Ghost Knight: "We won't give you Princess Louvia!"

 Dart: "Rose!!"

 Ghost Knight: "We'll protect her even if it costs our lives!"

 Albert: "'After counting 108 years, when the Moon That Never Sets glows red,
         a moon child descends upon the earth, to fill the world with holy
         bliss.' However, what was actually brought was the child of
         destruction, the Black Monster. We are witnessing a tragedy from the
         past."

 Shana: "It's awful. Why did it have to do this?"

 Dart: "The Black Monster!! How much does he have to kill before he satisfies
       himself!?"

 Rose: "Stop it!! Sorry. What was I thinking? Let's move on. You want to know,
       don't you?"

[Inside the princess' room...]

 Dart: "!?"

 Head of Ghost Knights: "You, Black Monster...."

 Ghost Knight A: "How dare you come here, pursuing Princess Louvia."

 Ghost Knight B: "But, as long as we are here with her, we are not going to
                 give her up."

 Dart: "We are not the Black Monster! We are...!"

 Ghost Knight C: "How dare you monster, using human words to fool us.:

 Ghost Knight D: "Unforgivable. Even if it costs my life, I won't give up our
                 Princess Louvia!!!"

[The ghosts are defeated.]

 Ghost Knight: "AHHHHHH!!!"

 Head of Ghost Knight: "Princess? Princess!"

 Dart: "Shana!!"

 Shana: "It's over! There is no more Black Monster. Oh please.... Please suffer
        no more."

 Head of Ghost Knight: "You...you are...."

 Shana: "...I...!?"

 Head of Ghost Knight: "Thank god. You made it. Princess Louvia...."

[The ghost knight vanishes.]

 Shana: "W, Wait!! Is there still something that I don't know about?

 Dart: "!? The door is open."

[Inside, Dart looks at the baby crib.]

 Ghost Nanny: "Princess Louvia, she was still young. If she wasn't a princess
              of Mille Seseau, this wouldn't have happened."

 Shana: "Princess of Mille Seseau?"

 Ghost Nanny: "Oh my, you are...? Alive.... Oh lord. It was not in vain. I have
              been wandering for 18 years and longing for you. I can now end
              everything. I can go to the place everyone is."

[The nanny sublimes.]

 Shana: "Wait! What kind of relationship do I have to this person!?"

[The crib stops rocking.]

 Albert: "!?"

 Shana: "Yeek!!"

 Dart: "This ship is sinking!?"

[The party goes to escape.]

 Kayla: "Everything is fixed and under control in the engine room now, sir!!

 Puler: "Now let's relax and wait for Dart and the others to come back.

 Kayla: "Whoa!?"

 Puler: "Kayla!! Get ready quick!!"

 Albert: "Everyone!! Hurry up!!"

 Meru: "Dart, Rose!! Quick quick!!"

[Dart and Rose are stragling.]

 Shana: "Dart!!"

 Rose: "Let's go!! We are the last ones!!"

[The two try to jump but almost fall in the water.]

 Albert: "!!"

 Dart: "Rose!! Let go!! You gotta live!!"

 Rose: [This is the same as back then!!] "No!! I won't let go!! I will never
       let it happen again!!"

 Albert: "Rose!? Dart!! Rose!!"

[The two fall into the waves.]

 Albert: "Dart!!!"

 Shana: "Commodore Puler!! Put out the life raft, quick!"

o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

[Dart and Rose end up in a cave somewhere on the mainland, away from the crew.]

 Rose: "Dart and Zieg, they are so much alike. Not only are they dragoons
       recognized by the Red-Eyed Dragon, but there is something else, 
       something that attracts me.... After 11,000 years of time, I now feel
       the strength and tenderness of Dart...and even...his frailty. These tame
       the insanity of the Dragoon for me. Zieg.... If my hands could grab him,
       I wouldn't have had this bitterness."

[Flashback: 11,000 years ago in the Dragon Campaign]

 Rose: "Kanzas!"

[Kanzas self-destructs on a Virage. Zieg tangos with a weird person.]

 Zieg: "Not bad! I'm taking you with me!"

 Zieg: "Melbu Frahma! Die!!"

 Melbu Frahma: "How dare you!?"

[The large structure starts to break. A Dragoon holds it up.

 Shirley: "Belzac? your death won't be in vain!"

[Shirley destroys a Virage with an arrow.]

[Rose is alone and sees Zieg calcifying.]

 Zieg: "Revel to your very core in my internal curse!!"

 Rose: "Zieg!!"

[She grasps his hand.]

 Zieg: "Let go! Save yourself!"

 Rose: "Zieggggg!!!!"

[Back to the present.]

 Rose: "I saw Zieg in Dart. But.... Dart is Dart. He is not Zieg. No...he is
       not Zieg."

[She falls asleep cradling Dart ^___^  The next morning a dog/kid find them.]

 Pete: "Pooch! What's wrong!? Oh my god!! There is somebody there!!"

[He takes them to his town.]

 Pete: "Pooch, you like him, don't ya? I was surprised. Nobody would think
       there are people there."

 Dart: "We are saved thanks to you, Pete. We have to thank Pooch too."

 Pete: "By the way. Are you in love with each other? Cuz you two are traveling
       alone."

 Dart: "Do you think so?"

 Pete: "I think so. Don't they look it?"

 Pete's Ma: "Yes. You make a good couple."

 Rose: "Don't be silly."

 Dart: "We were just looking for our friends. Actually, there are seven of us."

 Pete: "Okay, but you don't need to be shy."

 Pete's Ma: *cough* *cough* *cough*

 Dart: "Are you sick?"

 Pete's Ma: "It's nothing." *cough*

 Pete: "Actualy, we should have been to the clinic in the neighboring town."

 Rose: "Neighboring town?"

 Pete: "It's Fueno. There is a port and they have a boat to Donau."

 Dart: "You know what...? The Queen Fury might have dropped by. But why don't
       you take your mother to Fueno?"

 Pete: "Cuz there is a monster on the way in the Undersea Cavern."

 Pete's Ma: "I know we rarely have guests, but we have to let them go, Pete.
            Mr. Dart. I hope you can meet your friends soon."

 Pete: "I hope so too! Say hi to everybody, okay!?"

[As the party tries to leave...]

 Pete: "Dart!! *Huff. Huff*"

 Dart: "What's wrong?"

 Pete: "Would you please take us to Fueno! I'm afraid of the monster, but we
       gotta go before it's too late!"

 Dart: "It's about your mother, isn't it."

 Pete: "I want her to be in the hospital."

 Dart: "You got it. We'll take you there."

 Rose: "I can annihilate the monster for you. Did I say something wrong?"

 Pete: "Thank you! I'll bring my ma!!"

[He leaves for a sec.]

 Rose: "What are you looking at?"

 Dart: "No, nothing."

[Soon the party leaves for the Undersea Cavern.]

 Pete: "Since the Monster appeared, the water has never ebbed. But it's okay
       cuz Fueno is not this way."

[And it's off to Fueno!]

[The bustling city opens up before the party.]

 Pete: "Here we are at Fueno!! Thank you! Dart and Rose!"

 Dart: "You have to get better soon and make Pete happy."

 Pete: "I hope you can find your friends soon! But, are you actually in love
       with each other? Cuz in that cave, you...."

[Rose yanks him aside.]

 Rose: !! ("You are a good boy and didn't see anything, okay!?")

 Pete: ("O...okay. I didn't see it, maybe.") "It's nothing! We are going!
       Rose! You gotta confess to him!!"

[Rose nearly chases him off.]

 Rose: "Kids.... What are you looking at?"

[The two walk down to the docked Queen Fury.]

 Crew: "!!"

 Kayla: "Well..in that storm.... Even for the powerful Dart and Rose...."

 Crew: "You, you are!!"

 Kayla: "Mr. Dart!! Miss Rose!!"

 Dart: "Kayla. I had you worried."

 Kayla: "Thank god!! Both of you are safe!!"

 Dart: "That was nothing."

 Kayla: "Oh!! Did you see Miss Shana!? Please go see her, hurry!! She hasn’t
        spoken even a word, since you disappeared!"

 Dart: "Is she on the boat!?"

 Kayla: "Everybody is in the city now!"

[Dart and company go back into the city, running into Meru.]

 Meru: "!! Ouch!! Don't you have eyes!?"

 Dart: "Meru!!"

 Meru: "Oh? Dart!! Rose!! I knew it!! You guys are alive!! Did you see Shana?
       Bad boy!! Come with me quickly!! We're in the hotel!! Come quick!!

[They go to said place.]

 Dart: "Hmm? She said the hotel.... Meru.... Where is she?"

 Meru: "Who am I!?"

 Dart: "!?"

[The rest of the men come down.]

 Meru: "You guys are slow pokes!"

 Albert: "Welcome back!

 Haschel: "We were tired of waiting for you!"

 Kongol: "You, die, impossible."

 Dart: "Everybody!!"

 Rose: "Hurry. Go see Shana."

 Albert: "She is in the back room upstairs."

[Dart runs up to see her.]

 Meru: "Let's leave them alone!"

 Haschel: ("Rose, she has changed somehow.")

 Albert: ("I agree. Indeed I got the impression that she has calmed down. In
         any event, it's a good thing.")

[Upstairs...]

 Dart: "Shana!"

 Shana: "Dart? Oh Dart!!"

 Dart: "I made you worried. Are you crying?"

 Shana: "It was nothing. I'm so happy that I'm crying. So.... Please don't say
        anything. I'm happy just like this."

 Voice: ("Peeking is not a ladylike thing to do!")

 Voice: ("I thought you wanted to leave them alone didnt' you!?")

 Dart: "!?"

 Voice: ("It's okay for me! I gotta learn about love and romance! You guys go
        back! Or we're gonna be caught!")

 Dart: "Kids...."

[Dart opens the door and the eavesdroppers -- Haschel, Meru, Albert -- tumble
in.]

 Meru: "Wow!! Please excuse us!!"

 Shana: "Ha ha! It's typical of Meru!"

 Dart: "Finally, you smiled."

 Shana: "True. It's been a while."

[Later on...]

 Dart: "And this and that.... We finally made it to Fueno."

 Albert: "Not only that, you two are safe and sound. It is just a miracle that
         the seven of us can meet again. We have to offer our thanks to the
         Tiberoan God."

 Dart: "We ought to return the favor to the God by taking the Moon Dagger back.

 Haschel: "We have to catch Lenus then."

 Meru: "May I ask you a question please!?"

 Dart: "What's wrong? Why are you being so formal like that?"

 Meru: "You guys were alone in the cave, weren't you? Did you guys put
       yourselves into...um...a romantic situation?"

 Haschel: "Meru! Don't be silly. Even though you are trying to learn about love
          it's too rude!"

 Meru: "Okay."

 Haschel: "So, Dart. Did you cuddle with Rose?"

 Rose: "Haschel!!"
 Dart: "Haschel!!"
 Meru: "Haschel!!"
 Albert: "Haschel!!"

 Haschel: "Sorry, sorry. It slipped out."

 Dart: "What do you mean 'slipped'."

 Rose: "Don't worry, Shana. Dart was concerned about you the whole time.
       Anyway, about Lenus.... We should go out and ask about her in the city.
       We may find out something."

 Dart: "I...I agree."

[A drunk is near the entrance.]

 Drippy: "You, you don't believe me either!? I really saw it! I saw a Dragon on
         the Prison Island!"

 Dart: "Dragon!? On the Prison Island?"

 Drippy: "You don't know that! My ship was smashed by the Sea Dragon rumored to
         live over the Undersea Cavern! I gotta have a drink or something! But!
         You cannot go there anymore! There are lots of monsters there! My
         house was taken by those monsters! I gotta have a drink! It was a half
         year ago that the monster showed up. It's all the monster's fault that
         I'm like this now. Give my ship and house back. ZZZZZZ...."

 Rose: "A half year ago.... It is the same time that Lenus joined the gang."

 Dart: "Okay. Let's go to the Prison Island."

 Drippy: "And, in the Prison Island?"

 Dart: "What is that noise!?
 
 Shana: "It's from over there!"

 Albert: "There must be something over there."

 Rose: "It's not just 'something'. It seems that the rumor about the Sea Dragon
       is true."

 Meru: "That is the Dragon's cry."

 Rose: "I can't blame you for feeling scared."

 Meru: "I...I'm not scared! A dragon or two is nothing!"

 Dart: "We have to look for a way to go to the Prison Island."

[They pitstop in Lidiera first. The mayor's playing cards.]

 Mayor of Lidiera: "Sorry! I'm in the middle of something! Here we go! How's
                   this!?"

 Villager A: "Darn!! Not again!"

 Mayor of Lidiera: "Well! I got a good win! Let's take a break! And what do
                   you want?"

 Dart: "We want to go to the Prison Island, but we cannot go because of the
       flood tide. We are wondering if there is any other way to go."

 Mayor of Lidiera: "You said the Prison Island!?"

 Villager A: "Are you serious?"

 Villager B: "Do you want to commit suicide or something?"

 Dart: "We are serious but we don't want to commit suicide."

 Mayor of Lidiera: "You know it's dangerous to go there, young man!! But,
                   why!? Why would you want to throw yourself into danger?"
                   R1 -> Danger attracts me.
                   R2 -> Danger is my middle name.
                   R3 -> We need to see the monster.

                   R1: "Danger attracts me."

                       Mayor of Lidiera: "What!? I cannot let daredevils like
                                         you go there! I didn't close the way
                                         because it was fun! Now go!"

                   R2: "Danger is my middle name."

                       Mayor of Lidiera: "What!? I cannot let crazy people like
                                         you go there! I didn't close the way
                                         because it was fun! Get out of my
                                         sight!"

                   R3: "I need to see the monster."

 Mayor of Lidiera: "You need to 'see' the monster!? ... ... You look serious.
                   The appearance.... You are warriors, aren't you? I got it.
                   I'll tell ya. But it's up to you, whether you can survive
                   there or not! I closed the route to the Prison Island, after
                   the monster problem arose."

 Villager A: "Why didn't you close the whole cave, it's really dangerous."

 Villager B: "Then we wouldn't be able to get to Fueno?"

 Mayor of Lidiera: "That's why I closed only the path to the Prison Island."

 Albert: "I have a question. How do you control the tide. It's puzzling me."

 Mayor of Lidiera: "Oh! Don't be so puzzled! I just closed the gate to the
                   sea when the tide was full! Then even after the tide has
                   ebbed, the water level inside won't go down inside!"

 Albert: "Oh...my. What a simple trick."

 Mayor of Lidiera: "You imagined I could think of something complicated!? Haa
                   haa haa!! Hey!! OPen the gimmick gate for'em!!"

 Villager: "I got it!!"

[A person opens a gate near Pete's house.]

 Mayor of Lidiera: "Go into the cave from the right side of Pete's house. Turn
                   the Valve and you can open the gate. Then you can go to the
                   Prison Island!"

[Dart flips the crankvalve.]

 Dart: "Now! We can go to the Prison Island!"

[After trekking through the Undersea Cavern, a scene with Lloyd/Lenus.]

 Lenus: "Here is the Moon Dagger that you wanted. I didn't kill those Humans
        as you said. But why did you suddenly start to say such a thing?"

 Lloyd: "The blood-smeared road might be the only way to lead us to the world
        we desire. Death gives birth to tears. And tears give birth to anger.
        When anger turns itself into rancor, it opens to war. It's silly that
        I have to repeat it, and since once is enough."

 Lenus: "Well, I won't stop you if you want to do so, Lloyd. Anyway! He's
        called something like Dart! Aren't they the ones coming after you,
        Lloyd!?"

 Lloyd: "It's all in my plan."

 Lenus: "Hmm. 'Plan' huh? Now, let me tell you my plan. My plan is to get a
        hot prize from you. Tut!"

[Dart's gang arrives.]

 Lenus: "Hey, you're disturbing my moment here!! You're gonna pay for this!!"

 Dart: "Why...why is Lloyd here!? Is this all part of your plot!?"

 Lloyd: "My will is with Emperor Diaz. Namely, everything was planned by the
        god."

 Rose: "You are still talking about that crap!"

 Albert: "You killed Lavitz, let us settle this score now!!"

 Lloyd: "I have the calling to reform the world. I have no time to pay
        attention to little things, like Lavitz."

 Dart: "Lloyd!!"

 Lenus: "I can't stand it anymore!!"

 Lloyd: "I am the one who torched your home to the ground. I am the one who
        deprived your friend of his life. And I hold the Moon Gem and the Moon
        Dagger in my hands! You abhor me, don't you?"

 Rose: "!!"

 Lloyd: "I am heading to Mille Seseau. Pursue me, if you can survive!"

[Lloyd leaves.]

 Lenus: "Easy easy! Wait a minute! Don't be so hasty! It was nice of him giving
        you an 'invitation'. But you gotta decline it. Because you will die now
        in here!!"

[Lenus transforms into the Dragoon of Water, getting defeated anyway.]

 Lenus: "Lloyd, my life...is for you!!

[She throws her chakram at Dart.]

 Shana: "Dart!"

[Shana pushes Dart out of the way, escaping harm. He bats the other away.]

 Lenus: "Lloyd...."

[Lenus disappears. A shiny, familiar light goes to Meru...]

 Meru: "This...."

 Dart: "It's Meru's Dragoon Spirit."

 Rose: "Oh, I am surprised that Meru was recognized."

 Meru: "Does that mean this Dragoon Spirit chose me? It means.... Am I one of
       the Dragoons?" [Acquired Blue Sea Dragoon Spirit] "I'm a Dragoon too!"

 Rose: "'Dragoon Spirits attract each other, and Dragoons gather as the Dragon
       Spirit desires.... As Soa's fate leads....'"

 Dart: "Are we drawn to each other like that? Is that what you are saying?"

 Rose: "It's just folklore. You are going to pursue Lloyd aren't you?"

[She walks away.]

 Albert: "Unfortunately, we have to go meet King Zior to tell him we couldn't
         bring the Moon Dagger back."

 Dart: "Aren't you hurt?"

 Shana: "No, thanks to you, Dart."

[Everyone's walked away.]

 Meru: "Hey guys!! Don't you ignore me like that!! Heeey wait for me!!"

[They backtrack to Fueno.]

 Puler: "Dart! I heard about you! You successfully defeated the monster on the
        Prison Island and the female bandit! What's wrong? You have a long
        face. We are ready to go back to Fletz in triumph."

 Dart: "We couldn't get the Moon Dagger back."

 Puler: "I like the ocean. Let yourself flow in the waves and winds. The
        problems of this world become not a problem at all. Here is an idea,
        Dart. Why don't you come with me on the ocean? Dart, you would make a
        good sailor, or even a great man of the sea!"
        R1 -> A man of the sea, not bad.
        R2 -> I can't.

        R1: "A man of the sea, not bad."

            Shana: "What are you talking about! We have to pursue Lloyd now!"

            Dart: "Yeah. We have something we have to take care of."

            Puler: "I understand, but it's a shame. However, I'm moved that you
                   considered being a man of the sea. It's small, but it's my
                   farewell gift to you! Take this! [Acquired 100G]

        R2: "I can't. I still have something to take care of."

            Puler: "I understand. It's a shame, though."

 Puler: "Dart, as soon as you are ready, just come aboard. Meet you on the
        boat! Be ready for departure!!"

 Kayla: "Are you ready?"
        R1 -> Not yet.
        R2 -> Yes.

        R1: "Not yet."

            Kayla: "Please hurry up. Commodore Puler is losing his patience."

        R2: "Yes."

            Kayla: "Casting off! Getting ready to cast off!!"

[Back to Donau...]

| Ch. 2 - 33 - Twin Castle at Fletz IV                                   TCF4 |
o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

[Everyone heads towards the castle square.]

 Man: "Princess Emille is here!!"

 Albert: "Let's go!"

 Man: "Her graceful steps...."

 Woman: "Her dainty movement of the hands...."

 Man: "Her gracious eyes...."

 Woman: "She must be.... She is our Princess Emille!!"

 Crowd: "Princess Emille is back!"

 Emille: "I have returned after a half year of sleep. My father, King Zior,
         wouldn't say it, but I heard that the evildoings of the sinner who
         feigned to be me has harmed our people in Tiberoa. I can say it is
         my fault. Because people were wounded by trusting someone they thought
         was me. I am determined to make atonements for this, even if it takes
         forever."

 Crowd: "It wasn't your fault Your Majesty!! Please do not blame yourself Your
        Highness!! Your returning only makes us happy!!"

 Emille: "I owe you a debt of gratitude. I love this country. I love you
         people. Let us make this country continue to be a wonderful country!"

 Pregnant Mother: "I have a favor to ask you, Princess Emille. May I ask you to
                  name my baby, my soon-to-be-born baby, Your Highness?"

 Emille: "It would be my pleasure. How about Eyie for a girl and Al for a boy?
         They have the sound of great energy and strength."

 Pregnant Mother: "They are beautiful names!! I thank you very much Your
                  Highness!!"

 Crowd: "God bless Princess Emille!! God Bless Tiberoa Kingdom!! All the best
        for the kingdom and us!!"

[After the crowd disperses...]

 Albert: "Oh Princess Emille.... How beautiful she is...."

 Dart: "Albert?"
 
 Albert: "Just like I imagined.... Oh, thank you lord for leading me to the
         country of Princess Emille...."

 Dart: "Is something wrong?"

 Albert: "Oh.... Oh. Oh, no? Where is Princess Emille?"

 Dart: "You can meet her again in the castle."

[In the Twin Castle...]

 Tiberoan Knight: "We have been waiting for you, sir!! Please proceed to the
                  Chamber of the Sun!!"

[The party goes for an audience.]

 King Zior: "Heroes! Forget about formality! You are the special guests of
            Tiberoa! Welcome back!"

 Emille: "I'm glad you are safe and sound..."

 Lisa: "My sister is now acting as if nothing happened, but until you came
       back, King Albert, she had lost her appetite completely."

 King Zior: "It's not only Emille. We were longing for all of you to come
            back. Well done."

 Dart: "But... The Moon Dagger is still in their hands..."

 King Zior: "Stop it! You people brought justice upon the evil bandits!! You
            defeated the Sea Dragon that infested Illisa Bay!! It was you,
            young people, who brought peace and happiness to Tiberoa and
            brought smiles back to our people!!"

 Albert: "However, the Moon Dagger has to be passed on to Princess Emille..."

 King Zior: "The Moon Dagger is a mere royal tradition. Tradition alone doesn't
            put smiles on our people's faces. That is all the Moon Dagger can
            be. King Albert. We are satisfied with the way things turned out."

 Emille: "Instead of the Moon Dagger, we found something else to hand down. 
         That is...the heroic story of you."

 Lisa: "It will be passed down through the ages from person to person: 'The
       seven stars arose from the East to save the country of the king who
       lives in the Chamber of the Sun.'..."

 Dart: "It was my pleasure, Your Majesty."

 King Zior: "That's enough for formality!! We are having a banquet for you!
            Please enjoy yourself!!"

 Meru: "Is a 'Banquet' a party?!!"

 King Zior: "Plainly speaking yes, it is!!"

 Meru: "Cool!! It's a party!! A party for us!!"

 Shana: "Oh Meru! Behave and be quiet!"
 
 King Zior: "Haa Haa Haa! She is cheerful and excited!!"

 Emille: "We still have time before the party. Please feel free to relax."

 King Zior: "Let us prepare for the banquet!!"

[Back in the lobby...]

 Dart: "It seems we can relax for the first time in a long time, tonight."

 Albert: "I think so too... We have to leave here tomorrow. It is a good chance
         to relax."

 Shana: "Mille Seseau... The country where Dart was born... We'll be busy
        again..."

 Meru: "I'll be walking around till the party starts!"

[Everyone starts to do their own thing.]

 Dart: "Hey... Where are you going!?"

 Haschel: "I have an errand to do."

 Rose: "Are you going too, Rose?"

 Albert: "Let me go too. You have to appreciate what everyone did."

 Shana: "Why don't we go out too?"

[Shana and Dart talk on the between-towers bridge.]

 Shana: "I love you, Dart. Since I was little... It never changed, even when
        you went on your journey, Dart. Actually, I started to love you even
        more... Because while you were gone, I was thinking about you every
        single day..."

 Dart: "Shana..."

 Shana: "So, I don't mind being your baby sister. Because I can be with you
        everyday... That's just how I think."

 Dart: "I... I...don't think of you as my baby sister, Shana. I..."

 Shana: "Let's continue this after our journey is over...all right?"

[Fester interrupts the almost-kiss (grr!)]

 Fester: "Dart! Welcome back! What's wrong? You have such a sour face."

 Dart: "You, you think so?"

 Fester: "Anyway! You are famous in the city! The hero who defeated the dragon
         that descended down on Tiberoa!"

 Dart: "If you say so... It still doesn't feel like it's real."

 Fester: "It's your modest attitude! You are our times' latest hero!"

 Dart: "Um..."

 Fester: "By the way, the party is starting! Get rid of your sour face. And be
         happy! See you later."

[He leaves and this time Libria interrupts an almost-kiss.]

 Libria: "Oh!? Mr. Dart! Miss Shana! Why are you here!?"

 Dart: "We are waiting for the party to start..."

 Libria: "It's starting soon! Please get everyone or I cannot prepare the
         dresses! I'll see you later!"

[She leaves.]

 Shana: "I am going to look for everybody."

 Dart: "Wait!"

[Dart finds Albert in Emille's room]

 Albert: "Do you know about the Legend of the Mermaid?"

 Emille: "No.... Please tell me about it."

 Albert: "The king of some country is gazing out over the waves of the sea and
         thinking his life is hollow, just like the vanishing bubbles.
         Everything looked like that because the king didn't know true love.
         Under the waves, a mermaid was thinking the same thing while gazing
         at the clouds in the sky."

 Emille: "Oh my... And what happened to the two of them?"

 Albert: "Would you like to know? This is a secret story handed down only
         within the Serdio royal family, so...I cannot tell you anymore. Oh...
         I'm sorry I cannot go on."

 Emille: "Oh! You are teasing me!" *Chuckle*... "But I am having a fabulous
         time. I didn't notice the passing of time when I'm talking with you."

[Dart enters.]

 Dart: "I knew it, you are here...."

 Albert: "Is something wrong?"

 Dart: "The party is starting soon. So I am calling everybody down."

 Albert: "It's already that time. Unfortunately, I have to leave you."

 Emille: "When can we meet again?"

 Albert: "When the stars fill the sky...."

 Dart: "You can simply say 'tonight'."

 Emille: "At the party...."

[In the kitchen...]

 Meru: "Just a peek is fine! I wanna see the party food!"

 Haschel: "We are not going to eat now. We just want to sample the food..."

 Maid: "That is eating! Come on! Please get out! You are delaying the
       preparation!"

[Both get booted outta the kitchen.]

 Maid: "Mr. Dart! Please stop them!"

 Haschel: "Wars never choose their time. You have to eat whenever you can. That
          is a basic understanding for a warrior!"

 Meru: "You wanna eat too, don't ya Dart?"
       R1 -> Me too!
       R2 -> The party is starting soon.

       R1: "Me too!"

           Shana: "Stop it! You are not a kid anymore! You too Haschel! The
                  party is starting soon. Behave yourself!"

           Meru: "Is that true?"

           Haschel: "Why didn't you say so!"

           Dart: "Y, Yes! I'm here to tell you that!"

           Meru: "C'mon. Let's go!

       R2: "The party is starting soon. You can eat as much as you want then,
           right?"

           Meru: "Is that true?"

           Haschel: "Why didn't you say so!"

           Dart: "I'm here to tell you that."

           Meru: "C'mon. Let's go!

[Rose is in the guest bedroom.]

 Rose: [I am...a hero... He would laugh at me...] *Chuckle*... [...!? I...
       laughed now... ...I did laugh... Since I have started to wear this
       choker... I have not laughed...for years...] *Chuckle*... [It was worth
       the wait...]

 Dart: "Oh, you are here. I'm here to tell you that the party is starting."

 Rose: "It'll be a fun party."

[Kongol is in the knights' training area using his axe.]

 Kongol: "Kongol has friends. Friends of different species."

 Dart: "Not bad. Whoa!!"

 Kongol: "Don't do that."

 Dart: "That's what I should say!"

 Kongol: "Did you hear Kongol speaking?"

 Dart: "Not really... By the way, the party is starting."

[All allies are collected!]

 Dart: "Everybody's here. By the way, she was saying something about dresses,
       but where should we go...? We have to ask Libria about it...."

[Libria's near the training center.]

 Libria: "It seems everyone is here. Miss Shana, Miss Rose, and Miss Meru,
         please come this way... You have to change into the dresses."

 Shana: "Dresses? You are talking about us?"

 Libria: "Yes I am. Princess Emille and Princess Lisa insist."

 Dart: "Good for you."

 Meru: "No thanks."

 Dart: "It's not like you."

 Meru: "Cuz, I'm a dancer. I can't dance well in those dresses."

 Rose: "No thanks for me either. I feel naked without my sword."

 Libria: "Please wait in the living room. I will come and take you there later.

[Everyone lounges in the guest quarters for awhile.]

 Libria: "Everything is ready. Please proceed to the Chamber of the Sun."

[In said chamber...]

 King Zior: "This is a banquet to honor the seven heroes who saved Tiberoa!!
            Please enjoy yourselves to the utmost!!"

[Haschel stands alone.]

 Woman in Red Dress: "Mr. Dart!"

 Woman in Blue Dress: "Wait for us!"

 Woman in Red Dress: "You must be Mr. Dart! I am dying to hear your story..."

 Woman in Blue Dress: "Oh, excuse me, but monopolizing him is not fair. Please
                      let me hear your story too."

 Woman in Red Dress: "I would like to know more about you."

 Woman in Blue Dress: "Oh my! Don't be so fresh with him! I talked to him
                      first! Oh... You must be Mr. Haschel..."

 Haschel: "I'll take care of things here. Why don't you go enjoy yourself
          with Shana. At least tonight, you have to make good use of the time
          the two of you are together."

 Dart: "Thank you."

[Kongol stands alone.]

 Kongol: "What did you do to Shana?"

 Dart: "Do...? I didn't do anything."

 Kongol: "No Shana here."

 Dart: "No!?"

 Kongol: "Kongol tall. Kongol doesn't see from here."

 Dart: "Where is she...?"

[Meru is dancing all around.]

 Dart: "Are you enjoying yourself?"

 Meru: "Yup! It's fun! Are you gonna dance too!?"
       R1 -> I'll try.
       R2 -> No thanks.

       R1: "I'll try."

           Meru: "Right on!"

           [They start dancing together.]

           Meru: "Where is Shana?"

           Dart: "I don't know."

           Meru: "Go look for her. She should be waiting for ya. Come on! Go!"

       R2: "No thanks."

           Meru: "Don't say that! You gotta totally enjoy yourself tonight!!"

           Meru: "Where is Shana?"

           Dart: "I don't know."

           Meru: "Go look for her. She should be waiting for ya. Come on! Go!"

[Albert is talking with Emille.]

 Albert: "I have to go to Mille Seseau with Dart."

 Emille: "I'll wait for you... I'll wait for you forever."

 King Zior: "Emille! Well said! The future of Serdio and Tiberoa is shining
            like the sun!"

 Albert: "I believe love is the only entity that never changes over time."

 Emille: "And distance makes the love grow deeper."

 King Zior: "I cannot watch this anymore! What's wrong...you have a long face?"

 Albert: "...If you are looking for Shana, she is not here."

[After talking to everyone:]

 Libria: "Mr. Dart! Miss Rose needs you. This way..."

[On the balcony...]

 Dart: "Rose...?"

 Rose: "Dart... Why are you procrastinating like that? Do you want her to
       catch a cold or something? Making her wait all night like that? She's
       over there."

[Shana is all dressed up nearby.]

 Dart: "You look beautiful..."

 Shana: "Thank you. But...it's all thanks to this dress."

 Dart: "That's not true."

 Shana: "Look! A falling star! I wonder if my wish will come true?"

 Dart: "It will. Because... I wished the same thing..."

[They kiss and the disc ends.]

o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

[The Queen Fury docks in Mille Seseau's seaside town.]

 Rose: "There is a smell of blood around this place. But.... It's not bad at
       all."

 Meru: "It's been a long time!"

 Haschel: "Have you been here?"

 Meru: "Umm...y, yeah. Well, I'm very popular, that's why!"

 Kongol: "Kongol crossed sea first time."

 Albert: "Furni the Water City. This port is the front door to Mille Seseau.
         Anyway, I wonder why Lloyd revealed his destination to us?"

 Dart: "I still don't know. Whatever he wants, this will be the end of it."

 Shana: "I agree. For the sake of the victims so far. It's not only that. In
        order to prevent there being new victims, we have to stop Lloyd."

[In town a bunch of hunters are gathered.]

 Resident Knight Harris: "This seems to be all of us! Now! I'll explain the
                         strategy! We hae to overcome the white wolf called
                         Kamuy that lives in the Evergreen Forest between this
                         village and Deningrad!"

 Hunter: "Did you call us just for that!?"

 Resident Knight Harris: "Not only that. A boy from the village, Teo,
                         disappeared in the Evergreen Forest! The strategy is
                         simple! All of us will beat the bushes all over the
                         Evergreen Forest! I promise a five times larger prize
                         for the one of you who defeats Kamuy!! I promise the
                         same for the one who saves Teo!"

 Bulgus: "It's gonna be me!"

 Hunter: I"m itching to do it!!"

 Bulgus: "Who are you? I've never seen you before. You look like you have a
         chance, but I'm getting the prize. Don't ever disturb me!"

 Dart: "..."

 Bulgus: "Are you scared out of your wits and cannot talk!?"

 Resident Knight Harris: "Cut it out! We have to cooperate or we cannot
                         overcome Kamuy!"

 Bulgus: "Humph! I'll let you know when we will start! Until then, you have
         some free time! You are dismissed!"

[Down in the inn...]

 Man at the Rent-a-Boat: "I'll be right with you. Here is the license for the
                         boat. The Mayor gave us an order to rent the boat to
                         warriors for free."

 Dart: "Warriors?"

 Man at the Rent-a-Boat: "Well? You are the warriors who came to overcome the
                         wolf, aren't you?"
                         R1 ->
                         R2 ->

                         R1: "No, we are not. We are just travelers. We've
                             just arrived from Tiberoa today."

                         R2: "Yes, we are."

                             Man at the Rent-a-Boat: "You look fishy though.
                                                     I cannot give it to you
                                                     because something is fishy
                                                     about you."

 Man at the Rent-a-Boat: "From Tiberoa? With that huge boat?"

 Dart: "Yes, it is the Queen Fury."

 Man at the Rent-a-Boat: "Well, wait a minute. One, two, three...seven!! Could
                         you be the famous Dart and companions who conquered
                         the Sea Dragon in Illisa Bay?"

 Dart: "I guess the story has traveled all the way here."

 Man at the Rent-a-Boat: "Hon! Let the Mayor know about this!! He'll be happy
                         to hear about this! Here it is! The License for the
                         boat! Take it!" [Acquired License for the Boat]

 Dart: "Thank you."

 Man at the Rent-a-Boat: "I have to thank you! Thanks to you, we can go fishing
                         and go to Tiberoa! If you need anything, just drop by!
                         We have accommodations too! I'll give you a good
                         price!"

[The 'heroes' go to meet the mayor.]

 Mayor of Furni: "Are they coming yet? The heroes from Tiberoa. Oh! I couldn't
                 sit still. I was just pacing around waiting for you! The story
                 of your heroic deeds in Tiberoa has reached us here in Furni!
                 It is wonderful what you did! And now I would like you to
                 listen to my story!"

 Dart: "P, please wait. I don't know what you are talking about."

 Mayor of Furni: "I would like to talk briefly about the sad situation in this
                 village. Would you please listen to me?"
                 R1 -> Sorry, we have no time.
                 R2 -> Okay.

                 R1: "Sorry, we have no time."

                     Mayor of Furni: "Oh.... Well, I see."

                     Shana: [to little girl] "What's wrong?"

                     Mayor of Furni: "This is...my daughter Fa. Since that
                                     horrible incident, she hasn't opened her
                                     mouth."

                     Shana: "Is the story...about the incident?"

                     Dart: "I undertsand. Tell us."

                 R2: "Okay."

                     Mayor of Furni: "This is...my daughter Fa."

 Mayor of Furni: "A few days ago, my daughter was attacked by a wolf.
                 Fortunately, the injury was not bad, however, since then, she
                 hasn't talked at all. Probably from the shock of the incident.

 Shana: "Poor thing."

 Mayor of Furni: "The wolf is becoming more savage every day. Now, he has been
                 joined by monsters from the Evergreen Forest, and they attack
                 people!"

 Albert: "I see. The warriors outside are the group headed for battle. Indeed,
         if we finish off the wolf, your daughter may become better."

 Mayor of Furni: "But it is more complicated than that. The wolf called Kamuy
                 that attacked Fa was kept by a boy of this village, until
                 recently. And the boy who kept Kamuy named Teo has
                 disappeared! On the night Fa was injured, Teo disappeared
                 from his home. Probably he feels responsible and ran away.
                 Teo has been Fa's friend since they were little. They are
                 best friends."

 Rose: "And.... You awnt us to cooperate with you on your mission."

 Mayor of Furni: "Yes. Of course I cannot force you. Now we have a lot of
                 warriors. Maybe they are enough. Oh.... Sorry about this. I
                 have made you listen for such a long time without thinking
                 about you at all. Well, as my apology, won't you stay at my
                 house for the night? It will be an honor to entertain heroes!

 Dart: "Well...." [he ducks by Fa] "Do you like Shana? For tonight only. Thank
       you."

 Mayor of Furni: "I am glad! Fa is happy too! She has been lonely since her
                 mother passed away. Now, let me see. When you are ready to
                 stay, come back. I will prepare dinner with Fa. Are you ready
                 to stay here?"
                 R1 -> Not yet.
                 R2 -> Yes we are.

                 R1: "Not yet."

                     Mayor of Furni: "I'll wait for you then."

                 R2: "Yes we are."

                     Mayor of Furni: "Now, let's have dinner!"

[Dinner...is eaten. Fa goes to Shana.]

 Shana: "Yes dear? Are you sleepy? You want to go to bed together?"

 Haschel: "Probably she wants warmth."

 Shana: "Let's go to to bed together."

[The two girls retire for the night.]

 Haschel: "!! This lullaby...."

[Flashback: Home of Haschel 27 years ago. Claire hums to herself.]

 Claire: "Isn't it a lovely tune? This tune is a lullaby that I am dedicating
         to my future baby."

 Haschel: "That might be better for her than mastering the martial arts."

[Back to present-day Furni.]

 Shana: (She is sleeping now.) "Isn't it a sweet tune? I learned this from
        Dart."

 Haschel: "Dart knew this tune?"

 Shana: "He said that his late mother sang it to him. It's a special lullaby
        for Dart."

 Haschel: (!! I see. It was not a coincidence for me to be here.) "I'm going
          to get some air."

 Albert: "It reminds me that Dart has been outside on the roof forever. Why
         don't you join him?"

[Out on the roof, Meru tails Shana and eavesdrops.]

 Dart: "It's a tune from my memory."

 Shana: "Do you remember? When you first came to Seles. I was little and you
        used to sing this song to me."

 Dart: "I remember that. Back then I used to take care of you, as if you were
       my baby sister, Shana."

 Shana: *Chuckle* "Like a 'baby sister'. But many things have changed since
        then. You and I too, Dart."

 Dart: "Yeah. You and I too, Shana."

 Shana: *Chuckle* "Yes we have."

 Meru: (Childhood friend, hmm. I wonder how my childhood friend is doing.)

 Dart: "The Moon That Never Sets. I hadn't noticed, but the Moon has been
       involving itself in our journey."

[Light comes out of Shana.]

 Shana: "My...my head hurts!"

 Dart: "Shana!?"

 Meru: "What's wrong!?

 Dart: "Are you all right!!"

 Shana: "Ahh...."

[Back inside the house...]

 Shana: "I'm fine now. I can leave anytime."

 Mayor of Furni: "Are you really okay!? You can stay here forever if you like!"

 Shana: "Thank you very much. But I really have to go. I'll see you soon. Let's
        go. We have to find Lloyd soon or it will be too late."

 Dart: "I'm with ya."

[After walking awhile, Dart sees a kid.]

 Dart: "He, Hey!"

[The kid flees. Some hunters flee down the road, too.]

 Hunter: "He, Help!!"

[A gigantic wolf appears.]

 Dart: "This is Kamuy!?"

 Resident Knight Harris: "Everybody surround it!! Finally I found it!"

 Bulgus: "I'll get him and I'll get the five times larger prize!! Let me kill
         it!!"

 Voice: "Stop it!!"

[The kid from before appears.]

 Resident Knight Harris: "Teo!! You are all right!!"

 Teo: "Everybody listen! It was not Kamuy's fault! It was a different monster
      that attacked Fa!"

 Resident Knight Harris: "Teo!! Leave Kamuy!!"

 Teo: "No way!! Cuz Kamuy protected Fa! So I'll protect Kamuy this time!!
      Please!! Don't kill Kamuy!!"

 Resident Knight Harris: "Teo! It's no longer the Kamuy you knew! Many other
                         people were attacked by it! Guys! Let's grab Teo
                         first!"

 Teo: "Stop it!!"

[Kamuy goes on a rampage to get Teo to safety.]

 Hunter: "Gwaah!"

 Hunter: "Whoa!!"

 Bulgus: "Yaaa!!"

[Kamuy escapes w/ Teo]

 Resident Knight Harris: "Teo!! Pursue them!!

 Shana: "The wolf called Kamuy. They say it used to be Teo's. I wonder why it
        became savage?"

 Dart: "I don't know. The only thing we know is that the wolf is a menace in
       the forest now.

[On a different path, Rose stops.]

 Dart: "What's up?"

 Rose: "Please go ahead. I remember I have some important errand to do."

[She slides down a path away from the party.]

 Dart: "Hey, wait!"

 Rose: "I'll catch up with you soon. Look for Lloyd in the meantime."

 Haschel: "She is mysterious, as always."

 Shana: "Meru?"

 Meru: "Hee hee.... I now remember I have an errand too."

 Dart: "You're not going to tell us the reason either, Meru?"

 Meru: "I'm just visiting my parents, that's all!"

 Haschel: "That's all? You should've said so. I will miss you, Meru." 

 Meru: "I'll be back soon! See ya!"

[Meru leaves also.]

 Dart: "It's typical of Meru. Let's move on."

[They finally find Kamuy. It howls furiously.]

 Dart: "!!"
       R1 -> [Maybe we should retreat.]
       R2 -> [Maybe we should advance.]

       R1: [Dart retreats.]
       R2: [Maybe we should advance.]

[Dart approaches.]

 Teo: "!! Go home! Kamuy's not bad! Go home!"

 Shana: "We met Fa. Fa is worried about you."

 Teo: "Fa is...?"

 Dart: "It's true. Fa doesn't talk anymore since you disappeared, Teo. It is
       because she really cares about you."

 Teo: "Fa cares that much about me?"

 Shana: "Fa needs you."

 Teo: "But.... What about Kamuy? He's gonna be killed if I don't protect him!"

 Voice: "That's right!!"

[Bulgus appears.]

 Bulgus: "You pretended to not be interested! But you came back for the prize,
         right! But I won't let you! I'll finish the beast!"

 Resident Knight Harris: "Teo! Come here! It's too late for Kamuy!"

 Teo: "Don't come here!"

[Kamuy stomps on Bulgus and prepares to rip him apart.]

 Bulgus: "He, Help!!"

 Shana: "Dart! We have to let Kamuy, stop!"

[Bulgus gets thrown out of the screen.]

 Bulgus: "Arrrghhh!"

 Teo: "Stoooop it!!"

[The party defeats Kamuy.]

 Teo: "Kamuy! Don't die!!"

 Shana: "I, I may be contradicting myself. But, I cannot leave this like that.
        White Silver Dragon.... Please save...Kamuy!!"

 Teo: "Kamuy?"

 Resident Knight Harris: "Kamuy is becoming himself again."

[Shana's DS recovers the wolf...it's really small again.]

 Teo: "Kamuy!!"

 Shana: "I'm glad."

 Albert: "The White Silver Dragon healed the savage soul that changed Kamuy."

 Dart: "Teo. Go back to Fa and show her you are fine. Kamuy can go back with
       him can't he?"

 Resident Knight Harris: "Hmm, it seems he's not going to harm people anymore.
                         Fine. If anything happens, I'll take responsibility.
                         It will be the best for Teo and Fa. Teo, let's go
                         home! Everybody's worried about you!"

 Teo: "Okay! Thank you! Miss!"

| Ch. 3 - 36 - Crystal Palace at Deningrad                               DNG1 |
o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

[At the Deningrad church, a priest speaks to a group of people.]

 Bishop Dille: "It is said taht the Divine Tree that lives in our hearts and
               the Last Fruit has been protected from evil by the Signets
               created by the ancient Winglies. The legend goes, 'When the
               Signet is broken, the end of the world approaches.' Just like
               the Last Fruit, we Humans are one of the fruits given life by
               the Divine Tree. For the 'End of the World' to be a mere 
               legend, we must remove evil from our hearts and live in honesty.
               It is our mission as children of the Divine Tree."

[The crowd leaves. Dart's team approaches.]

 Dart: "A Divine Tree, I've never heard of it."

 Albert: "We still don't know what the objectives are for Lloyd. Any
         information could be helpful."

 Bishop Dille: "Oh, you must be travelers. Welcome to Deningrad. My name is
               Bishop Dille. I serve the Divine Tree."

 Dart: "I'm Dart. This drawing is what you were talking about?"

 Bishop Dille: "Yes, it is. The Divine Tree. But this is what we imagine.
               Nobody has seen the real tree. Nonetheless, we believe in the
               Divine Tree. It is the source of life in harmony. Would you like
               to know more about the Divine Tree?"
               R1 -> No thank you.
               R2 -> Yes please.

               R1: "No thank you."

                   Albert: "Dart! Why did you say that!? Knowledge about the
                           Divine Tree may lead us down the right road! Oh,
                           Dart. You are pathetic. Knowledge reveals itself
                           only to those who desire it."

                   Haschel: ("He just wants to know things, doesn't he?")

                   Shana: ("But just listening to a story won't harm us, will
                           it?")

                   Dart: ("I was concerned about Lloyd, but if you insist, we
                          can listen to him.")

                   Albert: "Therefore! Let's listen to the story of the Bishop!
                           All right!?"

                   Dart: "I take it back. Please tell us."

               R2: "Yes please."


 Bishop Dille: "The Divine Tree is the Tree of Life. All life comes from this
               Divine Tree. In the beginning, nothingness filled the world.
               Then, The Creator Soa descended from the sky. He and his
               followers created the world. In the end, Soa sowed a seed on the
               earth. The seed soon grew to be a great tree. The great tree
               bore 108 fruits and various lifeforms arose from the ripened
               fruits. Thus, 108 forms of life created to fill the world. The
               Divine Tree completed its rule, but the story says it is still
               protected by the Signet of Soa. It is like this, the world was
               established with a fate determined by Soa."

 Dart: "God's tree, sown by Soa, is the Divine Tree."

 Bishop Dille: "If you would like to find out more about this, you can go to
               the National Library."

 Albert: "Is that the Mille Seseau National Library!! I can step into the
         treasury of knowledge. I wonder if I am capable of receiving all this
         incredible luck and still remain calm. No! I cannot! The treasure of
         knowledge is shining and calling me!"

 Dart: "Al, Albert? Are you okay?"

 Albert: "Let's go!"

[Down the aisle...]

 Librarian Ute: "Who are you people? Do you realize that you are talking to
                Librarian Ute?"

 Dart: "No. Sorry."

 Librarian Ute: "So what do you want? Have you interrupted my ceremony for no
                reason?"

 Haschel: "I don't like stubborn old guys because I want to be an adorable old
          guy."

 Librarian Ute: "Did you say something?"

 Albert: "Please wait. we were told by Bishop Dille that there is a wonderful
         library here."

 Librarian Ute: "If you want, you can just go to the library. ...  Oh, wait.
                I locked the door when I left!"

 Albert: "So, could you open the door? I would love the opportunity to touch
         such treasures of intelligence!"

 Librarian Ute: "All right. Stop looking at me like that!"

 Albert: "I appreciate it!"

 Librarian Ute: "I'll let you in now!"

 Haschel: "He is such a haughty old guy."

 Dart: "Don't say that. We have to do what we can do until Lloyd shows up."

 Albert: "That's true.He used a Dragon and a Dragoon in Serdio, and in Tiberoa,
         he obtained the cooperation of a Wingly. We don't know what he will do
         here."

[At the massive library...]

 Albert: "This is incredible!!"

 Librarian Ute: "This is the knowledge source of Endiness! Go look for anything
                you want!"

 Shana: "The entire wall is filled with books. Maybe we can find out something
        about Virages and the Moon That Never Sets."

 Haschel: "Doesn't looking at these things all the time have an affect on you?"

 Librarian Ute: "It made me wise!"

 Kongol: "Kongol feel dizzy. Gigantos lose to books."

 Albert: "Here is something about Dragons! It also talks about Dragoons too!"

 Dart: "We can say that the Serdian War was started from the Dragoon Spirit
       that was brought by Lloyd."

 Shana: "Let's split up and look."

 Dart: "Let's just do it."

 Haschel: "I guess I have to use my brain for the first time in a long time."

 Kongol: "Can Kongol read human words?"

 Shana: "If Rose were here, she would tell us a lot."

 Dart: "They will be back when they finish with their errands. We have to do
       what we can do now."

[Dart and his crew eventually talk amongst themselves for awhile.]

 Librarian Ute: "Hmm. Hmm!! It led to the Dragon Campaign! Hmm. Hmm!! What
                do you need?"

 Haschel: "Are you acting superior again?"

 Librarian Ute: "Of course. I am superior."

 Haschel: "I prefer being a hit with girls over feeling superior."

 Librarian Ute: "I don't care about those things! It seems you are interested
                in the Dragon Campaign. Winglies, Divine Moon Objects, Dragons
                and Dragoons. These all had something to do with the Dragon
                Campaign."

 Dart: "Then Lloyd has something to do with the Dragon Campaign?"

 Librarian Ute: "The Dragon Campaign is my specialty. Maybe I can be of
                assistance."

 Dart: "Tell me."

 Albert: "We only know fragments."

 Librarian Ute: "I see. This is the legend of the Dragon Campaign that I
                know.... There were 7 tribal warriors in the legend of the
                Dragon Campaign, dragoons reputed to be the incarnations of
                Dragons. With Dragons at their side, the dragoons fought boldy.
                However, in the age when the legend was reality, the Winglies
                dominated all, even the gods. The gods answered to dictator
                Melbu Frahma's prayers and granted him ultimate power; but, the
                power was abused. The earth of Saint Imperial Gloriano was
                scorched by the gods' fire and became ashen. The anger and
                sadness of the people was the fuel for the dragoons' cause.
                Then at last, they freed the gods. Without the gods' power, the
                Winglies perished and our age, the Human Age, began. Thereafter,
                the gods floated in the sky. For 11,000 years, they have been
                looking over the world as the Moon That Never Sets. That is the
                story. Did you find out something related to Lloyd? Oh well,
                that's unfortunate. You are already here so you might as well
                check the Reference Room upstairs."

 Dart: "Are there more books?"

 Librarian Ute: "No. It contains the historical material of Mille Seseau. For
                other people, it may seem to be mere trash; however, for our
                country, they are all historical objects. This is something
                left by the Black Monster that brought an inferno down on this
                country."

 Dart: "The Black Monster!?"

 Librarian Ute: "It has already been 18 years. It is surprising a young man
                like you knows about it."

 Dart: "I was born in Neet!"

 Librarian Ute: "God! Are you a survivor from the village!?"

[Upstairs, by some relics...]

 Librarian Ute: "This is the stained glass of the church in Neet. Do you
                remember seeing this?"

 Dart: "Yes. Faintly, but I do remember."

 Librarian Ute: "It was really a monster. These are the only things that
                survived the black flame."

 Dart: "Do you know anything about what happened to Neet back then? Any
       survivors or...."

 Librarian Ute: "I know only one."

 Dart: "Who is that!?

 Librarian Ute: "The Second Sacred Sister of Mille Seseau, Sister Luanna. It
                seems you don't know her. However I can tell you a little about
                the Black Monster. There is a legend about the Black Monster
                and the Moon Child. Would you like to hear it?"
                R1 -> No thanks.
                R2 -> Yes please.

                R1: "No thanks."

                    Librarian Ute: "When you are ready, come to me. I'll wait
                                   for you here."

                R2: "Yes please."

 Librarian Ute: "It is ironic, but.... The people who visit the church in Neet
                pray for their own happiness by looking at this stained glass
                which shows the legend of the Black Monster and the Moon Child.
                Why did the gods created him? The Black Monster. He appears in
                various legends, as a demon who rebels against and devours the
                gods, an evil plague that rejects peace in the world, the god
                that is the Moon That Never Sets. The Moon That Never Sets glows
                red every 108 years. It is a sign that a herald will be sent to
                earth, a herald is known to us as the Moon Child. The legend
                says the Moon Child revives the gods on earth and purifies the
                world. The Black Monster abhors, hates, and despises it, and
                kills the Moon Child. This sad karma is endless. This god stays
                forever in the sky, and the world is in never-ending chaos."

[Meanwhile, in the ruins of Neet, Rose walks around.]

 Rose: "Nothing has changed." (Am I...hesitating?) "It's silly."

 ????: "Mother.... I am back."

[A person is at a shrine.]

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "Mother, it's been a while. Since the tragic day,
                              I lost my sight. I am able to see today, thanks
                              to the love of many people like Setie here. May
                              the Divine Tree bless all the victims of the
                              tragedy. Who is it?"

 Rose: "I didn't mean to surprise you."

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "You are?"

 Rose: "Just a traveler. Please don't be alarmed."

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "There are people of Neet, and my mother,
                              sleeping here."

 Fourth Sacred Sister Setie: "Are you here to visit the grave too?"

 Rose: "I guess so."

 Fourth Sacred Sister Setie: "Then you know about Neet!?"

[Flashback: Neet 18 years ago. A guard is being attacked by the BM.]

 Black Monster: "Where is Princess Louvia?"

 Knight of Mille Seseau: "I will never tell you! UUURRRGGGHH!!"

[In a house somewhere...]

 Luanna: "I...I can't see. Mom, I'm scared."

 Luanna's Mother: "Don't come!!"

 Black Monster: "Where is Princess Louvia? Where did you hide the Moon Child?"

 Luanna's Mother: "We don't know!! What kind of spitefulness do you have toward
                  our village!?"

 Black Monster: "You want to die with your daughter?"

 Second Sacred Sister: "Mom, I'm scared."

 Luanna's Mother: "Princess Louvia left for the sea. This must be enough to
                  satisfy you! Now leave this village!"

 Black Monster: "The chance to eliminate the Moon Child comes only once every
                108 years. It's the time of birth when the moon glows a blood
                color. The newly born Moon Child has a magic power. That magic
                power changes everyoen around into an evangelist for the god,
                a servant to help prepare for the descending of the god."

 Luanna's Mother: "Ah!"

 Black Monster: "My objectives will not be satisfied until I kill every single
                person who was present as the Moon Child passed through."

[The BM leaves.]

 Luanna: "Mom...? Answer me...? It's hot!! It's burning. Mom.... Mom...."

[Back to the present time.]

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "It was a miracle that I survived."

 Rose: "I see. Then you were blinded back then?"

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "Yes. However, the god imparted me with something
                              else."

 Fourth Sacred Sister Setie: "Sister Luanna can see people's souls! But, she
                             can feel their pain too. Because of this, Sister
                             Luanna has suffered."

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "Now I can appreciate this power that I have.
                              Because, it allows me to heal the pain in
                              people's hearts. If you need to heal the pain in
                              your heart, please tell me. I can help you."

 Rose: "That's not necessary. By the way, are you done?"

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "Yes. I will go back to Deningrad soon."

 Rose: "May I join you? Even if you are with knights, the forest is filled with
       dangerous monsters. I can protect you from them."

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "I see. Then I'll ask you to come with us."

[They leave. Flash forward: Home of Meru.]

 Meru: "It's been a long time! I wonder if everybody is doin' all right? I
       wonder if they feel lonely without me? Wow!"

[A fireball almost hits her.]

 Meru: "Hey watch out!"

 ????: "Who is this coming through the boundary!?"

 Meru: "Wh, who are you, not knowin' me!?"

 ????: "?? Meru? Is that you, Meru!?"

 Meru: "Guaraha!? Long time no see! You look great!"

 Guaraha: "Do you think I am really 'great'? How could you leave without
          telling me! Where have you been!?"

 Meru: "He.... Hey! I came all the way back here! You don't need to yell at me!
       Aren't you happy to see me!?"
 
 Guaraha: "I am very happy to see you!! But leaving through the forest is our
          taboo! You left the forest, so I don't know if everybody else in the
          forest will forgive you, Meru."

 Meru: "Who cares about taboos!? Everybody in this forest!? And the Humans
       outside!? Both of us are living in the same world. How come we have to
       draw a line and lock ourselves in like this!?"

 Guaraha: "That's what I wanna know. I have been living in this forest forever.
          I wish I knew."

 Meru: "I'm gonna ask the Ancestor! I won't ask you anymore!"

[Meru travels into town.]

 Meru: "I'm home! Oops, it seems I'm not that welcome."

 Wingly A: "It's Meru."

 Wingly B: "Meru is back!"

 Meru: "This is my home! I can come home at any time!"

 Wingly A: "Such selfishness is not tolerated!"

 Wingly B: "There is no place to come home to, Meru!"

 Meru: "But...."

 ????: "That's true!!"

[Two Winglies descend.]

 Younger Bardel: "You are the black sheep of the proud Winglies! How dare you
                 shamelessly come back!"

 Older Bardel: "I thought you were satisfied with your decadent human life,
               weren't you?"

 Meru: "Bardel?" What are you talking about?"

 Older Bardel: "Go back to the Humans."

 Younger Bardel: "And wait there, for the moment we destroy the Humans!"

 ????: "Stop it!!"

 Meru: "The Ancestor!!"

 Ancestor Blano: "You left the forest on your own volition. How come you have
                 come back?"

 Meru: "I just wanted to see everybody."

 Ancestor Blano: "Leaving the forest is an unforgivable mortal sin. Didn't you
                 know that when you left for the world of Humans? As well as
                 that, you could never come back here."

 Meru: "Yes I did!! But it's strange!! The world is one hundred times bigger
       than this forest! There are, of course, bad Humans! But there are many
       good Humans too!! You never met them and you shouldn't hate them!!"

 Ancestor Blano: "There are people who hate and dested Humans just because
                 they are Humans, but their number is few. We just want to
                 protect our life. That's all. Humans have always been afraid
                 of the magic power of Winglies. The fear eventually turns
                 itself into a need to tyrannize us, and take some action.
                 Either to subjugate or kill Winglies. That's why we need our
                 own world, like this forest, where Humans cannot enter. Go
                 back to the other world. Your existence angers the others."

 Meru: "I understand. I'll leave."

 ????: "Meru!!"

 Meru: "Mother!"

 Meru's Father: "Leave the girl alone!"

 Meru: "Father, you must be kidding?"

 Meru's Father: "That's the rule. We are going."

[Her parents leave.]

 Meru: "Mother.... Father...."

 Ancestor Blano: "It must be hard for you, but you must go back, Meru."

 Younger Bardel: "Get out of our forest at once!!"

[Meru leaves; Guaraha picks her up and drops her by the entrance.]

 Meru: "Guaraha!? Wha, What are you doing!?"

 Guaraha: "Quiet. I want to talk between just the two of us. It seems you
          received a horrible welcome."

 Meru: "It's nothing to me."

 Guaraha: "Stop talking tough. Meru, it was just bad timing. Everybody is
          feeling tense lately."

 Meru: "Is that my fault too?"

 Guaraha: "No. Recently, the earth is surging. Don't you feel it Meru?"

 Meru: "I've been feeling it a little. The animals in the forest are all acting
       savage. This must be the cause. But, what is this?"

 Guaraha: "Ancestor Blano said that it is the omen of a Dragon coming back to
          life. And, it is not the usual one. Even our ancestors who had much
          stronger magic power couldn't defeat it."

 Meru: "Wh, what kind of Dragon is that?"

 Guaraha: "It's the strongest Dragon of all. The King of Dragons, with seven
          magical eyes. The Divine Dragon."

 Meru: "Divine Dragon?"

 Guaraha: "The Ancestor says that the seal has half dissolved. That's why
          everybody is nervous."

 Meru: "B, but!! We have a Dragon Buster and a Dragon Block Staff, don't we!?"

 Guaraha: "The sword for killing Dragons, the Dragon Buster, has been lost."

 Meru: "It, It wasn't me!"

 Guaraha: "We know. Because it was hidden with the staff in a place that only
          the Ancestor could open."

 Meru: "And...the talk you wanted between just the two of us is about the
       Dragon?"

 Guaraha: "That too. But what I really wanted to tell you is something else.
          Meru, don't leave me! I want you to be at my side! I can protect you
          if everybody opposes you!"

 Meru: "You are kind, as always. But if you do, you will be hated as well. I
       gotta go. Everybody's waiting for me."

 Guaraha: "You...have friends."

 Meru: "They are all cool. They show me and teach me many things. Ciao!"

 Guaraha: "Meru!!"

[She leaves. Back in Deningrad...]

 Librarian Ute: "What are you going to do? Are you going to pursue that man,
                Lloyd? When you get time, go visit Neet. You cannot change the
                past, however, you can face it. By facing it, maybe you can
                find out where you are from and where you want to go."

 Haschel: "I guess he wasn't just a snob."

 Dart: "Well we have to wait for Rose and Meru. ...!?"

 Shana: "Is anything wrong!?"

 Dart: "N...no. I just felt a little shiver, that's all."

 Albert: "I feel...something is wrong."

[At the town entrance:]

 Rose: "Did you find out anything about Lloyd?"

 Dart: "No, there is no trace yet."

 Rose: "I just happened to meet them. This is Luanna and Setie."

 Dart: "...?"

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "Excuse me, but you had some changes in your body
                              recently."

 Dart: "What are you talking about?"

 Town Dweller: "Sister Luanna!! Sister Setie!! Thank you, Sister Luanna! Now I
               can walk outside! How can I thank you?"

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "It is fine. That is what we, the Sacred Sisters,
                              are for."
 
 Albert: ("I would like to talk to you. Can we go someplace else?")

[Over at the inn...]

 Albert: "You are...the renowned Sacred Sisters of Mille Seseau, Sister Luanna
         and Sister Setie. It is a pleasure to meet you."

 Fourth Sacred Sister Setie: "It is my pleasure to meet the heroes who defeated
                             the Sea Dragon in Illisa Bay! I was really lucky
                             to follow her from Neet."

 Dart: "Sister Luanna, I heard about you from Librarian Ute. We have something
       in common, we are survivors of Neet."

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "So you went through that tragedy."

 Dart: "Do you remember anything!? About other survivors...or the whereabouts
       of the Black Monster, or anything!"

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "What I remember is only the sound of terror. I
                              am sorry. I don't think I can help you."

 Dart: "I see. But...it's okay. The fact that somebody survived that tragedy
       means I can have hope that continuing my journey will someday lead to
       the Black Monster."

 Shana: "I am with you too. Oh, does that mean you went to Neet too, Rose?"

 Rose: "I told you, I just happened to be there."

 Fourth Sacred Sister Setie: "Um, Sister Luanna. What about the health of Mr.
                             Dart?"

 Dart: "Yes. What do you mean the unusualness of my body?"

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "I see that you people have strong powers. A
                              power that is beyond Humans. It seems that the
                              source of your power is in turmoil. Another power
                              that has influence over you is anticipating the
                              liberation. That is what I see. That is all I can
                              tell. If it confuses you more, please forgive me.

 Dart: "!!"

[The inn shakes.]

 Fourth Sacred Sister Setie: "Oh no! Sister Luanna!"

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "This is.... The answer to your question.... You
                              may find out the truth about the entity that has
                              influence over you now!"

 Narrative?: War is not in human nature. Humans fight by making themselves
             enter insanity. It is...the same for revenge. This is a tool to
             amplify the insanity. And this insanity is the source of the power
             of Dragoons, the Dragon Knight. Someday, something will happen, and
             if you cannot chasten your insanity, I wonder if you will be able
             to endure it, given the size of your spirit?

 Shana: "Dart!?"

 Dart: "I...I'm fine."

[Outside, the Divine Dragon flies over Deningrad.]

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "Anger, or animosity, towards Humans or all
                              things."

 Meru: "Heeeey buddies!! Omigod omigod!! Could it be?"

 Rose: "The arrival of the 'One who glares through seven diabolic eyes, and
       who crosses the sky with seven wings'. It's trouble. It's the King of
       Dragons. The Divine Dragon."

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "The legend was true, 'The King of Dragons sealed
                              by the long gone Winglies rests in the ground of
                              Mille Seseau. Once it awakens again, it shall
                              bring terror to the world.'"

 Albert: "Again.... We are facing a Dragon."

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "What are you people?"

 Dart: "We are the Dragoons. We are the Dragon Knights who have the power to
       rule Dragons."

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "Dragoons.... The legendary Dragon Knights!! That
                              is the reason why I feel a strong power in you.
                              But, why did the Dragoons come to this country?
                              Is it because of that Dragon!?"

 Dart: "No. We are here to pursue a man. He is a sneaky, dangerous man even for
       those with the strength of us Dragoons."

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "What did that man do?"

 Albert: "He engaged in secret maneuvers during the Serdian War, and formed a
         conspiracy for a coup d'etat in Tiberoa."

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "Is he going to bring evil to Mille Seseau? Oh!
                              Is that the Dragon!? Please see Queen Theresa.
                              It seems that we need the power of you Dragoons.

[At Queen Theresa's throne...]

 Commander of Holy Knights: "What I'm telling you is that whatever the monster
                            is, with the force of the Holy Knights, nothing can
                            stand against us!"

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "Have you ever seen the monster?"

 Commander of Holy Knights: "According to the briefing by my man, it is bigger
                            than a cloud and faster than our horses! It's
                            impossible for such a creature to exist!"

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "Where does your confidence come from!?"

 Commander of Holy Knights: "It is impossible for such a creature to exist."

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "You idiot!"

[She punches him.]

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "Talking about the enemy based on mere
                              assumptions! Are you going to expose your men to
                              such danger!? You are dismissed, Commander of
                              Knights!

 Commander of Holy Knights: "Yes, ma'am!!"

[Everyone enters at this point.]

 Queen Theresa: "Calm down, Miranda. You are in front of guests. Luanna, Setie,
                I'm glad to see you came back safe."

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "You've never changed, Sister Miranda."

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "He doesn't understand the current condition. Who
                              are these people?"

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "I brought them in order to save Mille Seseau 
                              from the intruder."

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "You said to 'save'?"

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "If we do not take action, it will attack us
                              again. And next time, it might attack us
                              directly."

 Queen Theresa: "Do you know anything about the monster?"

 Rose: "It is the Divine Dragon, awakened from his long rest. Now wonder he is
       cranky."

 Queen Theresa: "The Divine Dragon!? You are...talking about...that monster
                sealed in the Mountain of Mortal Dragon."

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "Yes. The King of the Dragons, sealed in by the
                              ancient Winglies. The Divine Dragon came back to
                              life."

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "Are you sure of that!?"

 Queen Theresa: "Please relax, Miranda. You...said... You will save this 
                country. Is it possible for us Humans to defeat a Dragon?"

 Dart: "We don't know yet. However, we might be able to stop it."

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "What confidence you have."

 Dart: "We are the Dragon Knights, who rule Dragons, the Dragoons. There is
       nobody but us who can stand up to him."

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "Are you saying you are the hereoes from the
                              Dragon Campaign? The Dragoons!?"

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "I was surprised too. However, I don't see any
                              falsehood in their heart."

 Queen Theresa: "It means.... May we request your help in vanquishing the
                Divine Dragon?"

 Rose: "You are free to ask. In either case, we have to meet him. But, we have
       a favor to ask, Your Majesty. There is one thing we need in order to
       cross swords with the Divine Dragon. It is said that Winglies made two
       weapons in ancient times to fight against Dragons. One is a sword to
       kill Dragons, namely the Dragon Buster."

 Meru: "Wh, What!! How do you know about that, Rose!? Oops. I didn't say
       anything."

 Shana: "Wait a second. Isn't that the sword?"

 Dart: "Yes, it is. It's the sword that the bastard used to kill Lavitz. I'll
       never forget."

 Rose: "Therefore, we have no choice but to count on the other weapon."

 Queen Theresa: "What could that be?"

 Rose: "The Dragon Block Staff. As the name implies, it is a magic staff to
       block the power of Dragons."

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "And, where is the Dragon Block Staff?"

 Rose: "I was going to ask you. Actually, it seems that one of us knew about
       it. Meru?"

 Meru: "W, what are you talking about?"

 Shana: "Do you know about it?"

 Queen Theresa: "Please tell us. For the sake of this country!"

 Dart: "Why are you hesitating?"

 Meru: "Okay!! Okay!! I'll tell you guys, all right!? I think it's in the
       Forest of Winglies!"

 Dart: "Forest of Winglies? Where the heck is that?"

 Meru: "Um, it's in the northern part of the Evergreen Forest."

 Queen Theresa: "If so, are you saying that Winglies still live."

 Meru: "Uh huh."

 Queen Theresa: "It seems that the myth of fairies in the Evergreen Forest area
                was true."

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "Queen Theresa. I am heading to the Forest of
                              Winglies with these people in order to borrow
                              the Dragon Block Staff."

 Dart: "Are you coming too?"

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "Of course. The problems are too big to leave
                              just to you. Besides, I want to see how far you
                              Dragoons can go. If you really have the power as
                              described in legend."

 Queen Theresa: "I beg you people, please save Mille Seseau from the Divine
                Dragon."

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "Now, we are heading to the Forest of Winglies!
                              No time for procrastination!"

[In the lobby...]

 Albert: "Please wait. I don't see Shana."

 Dart: "Where did she go?"

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "What timing. Let's go look for her. We have no
                              time to waste."

[In the audience hall's antechamber...]

 Dart: "Shana! Are you all right!?"

 Shana: "Where...where am I? When...did I come here?"

 Dart: "What happened?"

 Shana: "I don't know. But...that took me?"

 Dart: "Miranda, what is this room for?"

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "This castle used to be a fort for Winglies. I
                              heard this room used to be a chamber for a 
                              ceremony to seal something. But it was more than
                              10,000 years ago."

 Albert: "Isn't it the reason the Divine Dragon made a raid on the Crystal
         Palace? In other words, he is trying to work off his hatred against
         Winglies."

 Dart: "Why did you come here alone? Were you called again, like the time with
       the Virage?"

 Shana: "No, it was different this time. I woke up and I was here. I feel hot.
        It's gone. My...."

[The White Silver DS goes to Miranda.]

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "What is this!?"

 Shana: "I cannot manage it anymore. I don't feel the power of the White Silver
        Dragon."

 Dart: "You.... You are a Dragoon too!?"

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "Me!?"

 Rose: "Dragoon Spirits manipulate fate. Hmm."

 Shana: "I can...no longer...."

 Dart: "Shana!!!"

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "Hey! What's going on!? What is this stone!?"

[In the guestroom...]

 Shana: "I...see. I passed out."

 Dart: "Are you all right?"

 Shana: "Yes, but I don't think...I can go with you anymore."

 Dart: "There is nothing you can do in your condition."

 Shana: "I knew it, from the day I looked at the moon in Furni. I was sure this
        would happen to me."

 Dart: "We will be back as soon as we defeat the Divine Dragon. So, wait for me
       till then?"

 Meru: "Lighten up!"

 Haschel: "I will work hard for you Shana!"

 Kongol: "Kongol too."

 Albert: "It won't be long. Dart will be back with you soon, Shana."

 Shana: "Don't worry. I am accustomed to waiting. But thanks, everyone."

[Everyone leaves.]

 Shana: "Miranda. Please take care of...the rest..."

 Miranda: "I know."

| Ch. 3 - 37 - Forest of Winglies                                        FWG1 |
o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

[The party journeys into the northern depths of Evergreen Forest.]

 Dart: "A dead end."

 Meru: "Here we are at the entrance to the Forest of Winglies." *Sigh* "Maybe
       I'll be kicked out again."

 Dart: "Where is the entrance? I see nothing."

 Meru: "There is a magical boundary here. Winglies have locked themselves in
       the forest since the Dragon Campaign."

 Dart: "How come they didn't live with humans?"

 Meru: "You know about the Dragon Campaign?"

 Albert: "It is the war that Humans, who obtained the power of the Dragoons,
         started in order to liberate themselves from the control of Winglies."

 Meru: "Some Winglies are still angry about that. Besides, Winglies have a
       power that Humans don't have. The Ancestor told me, that the power draws
       a line between Humans and us."

 Dart: "Meru, are you...?"

 Meru: "Yup. I'm a Wingly."

[She opens the boundary.]

 Meru: "Are you surprised?"

 Dart: "Yeah!"

 Miranda: "Why didn't you tell us?"

 Meru: "Would you believe me? Would you consider me as a friend if I told you
       guys?"

 Dart: "It doesn't matter. Meru is Meru, right? Now. Let's go see the Winglies.
       Now we are dealing with serious stuff."

[At the Winglies' town...]

 Wingly A: "I wonder what would happen to us if the Divine Dragon came to this
           forest?"

 Wingly B: "We would fight it with our magic, but probably would fail given our
           current level of power."

 Wingly C: "But the Ancestor said that we won't become extinct if we cooperate
           with other species."

 Wingly A: "'Other species'? Are you talking about Humans?"

 Wingly C: "That's right, but I wonder if everybody in the forest can
           understand that, including me. !! The seal!"

[Dart's team teleports in.]

 Wingly A: "Meru! The Humans!?"

 Wingly B: "Meru brought Humans here!!"

 Wingly C: "I'm going to let the Ancestor know!!"

 Meru: "Don't shoot!! They are my friends!!"

 Dart: "We are not here to fight! We are here to borrow the Dragon Block Staff!

 Wingly A: "The Dragon Block Staff!? Meru! How dare you speak about our secret
           to them!"

 Meru: "But the Diving Dragon is now awake!!"

 Wingly A: "B, But.... What can Humans do if they cannot even use magic?"

 Miranda: "Should we break through?"

 Dart: "No we should not. We have to take some action or everything may be
       destroyed. That includes the Forest of Winglies and human cities!"

 Wingly C: "Everyone! Hold on! The Ancestor says he will meet with the Humans!
           You.... Please, don't agitate the people in the forest. We are not
           used to seeing Humans. But.... Watch out for the Bardel Brothers."

 Meru: "What do you mean!? Let's go, Dart! The Ancestor Blano is in the back
       of the forest!"

[En route to Blano...]

 Meru: "Bardel! Are you bothering us again!?"

 Elder Bardel: "The Divine Dragon can be taken care of us by without asking
               Humans for help. Besides we have no business talking to a
               betrayer who ran off to Humans."

 Meru: "What happened to you!? The Bardel I knew was much kinder, and wasn't
       like that!"

 Elder Bardel: "My baby sister was killed by...a human."

 Meru: "Oh no!?"

 Elder Bardel: "My baby sister who was influenced by you, Meru, and left the
               forest! Believing that the outside world was wonderful. We
               don't need Humans' help. Do you have something else to say? Get
               out!"

 Dart: "There might be more people killed now!"

 Elder Bardel: "Good for you! It's a good chance to learn how helpless you
               Humans are! But we Winglies won't die. Our magic power surpasses
               the Dragons'."

 Rose: "You are strong, huh? Don't make me laugh. I wonder if you have noticed
       you are declining because you cling to the glory of the past?"

 Elder Bardel: "What are you talking about?"

 Rose: "You can barely fly and that's about it, right?"

 Elder Bardel: "Maybe you won't think that way after this!?"

[He shoots a fireball but Dart's dragoon form blocks it.]

 Elder Bardel: "!? No way! Is this the legendary Dragoon!?"

 Dart: "Please let us take care of the Divine Dragon."

 Meru: "I'll come back to take care of your baby sister's matter, after my
       journey has ended. So please trust us for now."

 Rose: "The ones who flaunt their power disappear when the truly powerful
       appear. I am going ahead."

[They leave Bardel alone.]

 Elder Bardel: "If we cannot even have revenge for our baby siter anymore....
               The Divine Dragon cannot be.... I feel weak in my knees.... I
               cannot move.... Is this real!? Ahh!!"

 Younger Bardel: "You wimp! Brother! How dare you Humans! Just because you are
                 afraid of our magic power, you are sending the destroyers of
                 old, Dragoons, at us. Silly Humans! I'll past sentence for the
                 sin of killing my sister! I'll annihilate them now!!"

[They finally reach the Ancestor.]

 Dart: "There is nobody here."

 Miranda: "Where is the Ancestor?"

 Dart: "My body is being healed."

 Albert: "Is this the magical healing?"

 Rose: "I wonder if it is an apology for the discourtesy?"

 Meru: "Ancestor, sorry we are late."

 Ancestor Blano: "Welcome. Humans and Giganto. I am Blano the Ancestor of the
                 forest."

 Miranda: "I am teh First Sacred Sister of Mille Seseau, Miranda. Please
          forgive our sudden visit."

 Dart: "I would like you to listen to our story. The Divine Dragon is...."

 Ancestor Blano: "I know. The Divine Dragon came back to life in the Mountain
                 of the Mortal Dragon, and there are Dragoons that have come
                 to us. It seems that the times won't leave us alone. The
                 messenger from the Crystal Palace, and the people who were
                 fated to come here.... Our opponent is so enormous. We have
                 to combine each of our strengths or none of us will survive.
                 Neither the Crystal Palace nor our forest."

 Dart: "You mean...."

 Ancestor Blano: "Let us put the power of the Dragoons and our wisdom together.

 Miranda: "You will let us borrow your Dragon Block Staff!"

 Ancestor Blano: "We don't have the Dragon Buster now. So the Dragon Block
                 Staff is our last resort. We no longer have the power to
                 master that, however, if you, who rule the Dragons can use
                 it, we can fight against the Divine Dragon."

 Miranda: "I appreciate your kindness!"

 Ancestor Blano: "However, we cannot participate in the battle. We are all that
                 remain. We cannot become extinct."

 Meru: "I'm going!!"

 Dart: "I know. You are a Dragoon too, Meru."

 Ancestor Blano: "Go inside. I will show you the way to the Dragon Block Staff.

[He opens a door and leads everyone but Meru inside.]

 Dart: "I'll meet you there, Meru."

 Ancestor Blano: "You are attracted to those Humans."

 Meru: "Yup. They are really cool! Ancestor!! I wanna go on the journey with
       them! And I wanna see...my mother and father anytime I want!"

 Ancestor Blano: "Are you telling me to throw our commandment away? It is not
                 the right time yet. But eventually, in the near future, the
                 time will come when us and Humans live together. Go with
                 them. As a Wingly, go see Humans, or better yet, the entire
                 world. Your experience will lead us."

 Meru: "Okay! I hear ya! I'll meet you there!"

[She leaves.]

 Ancestor Blano: "If Meru is one leading us to the outer world.... Where are
                 those Humans leading the world to? It must be the flow of
                 time. Only the fates can tell."

| Ch. 3 - 38 - Royal Capital Kadessa                                     RCK1 |
o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

[Up above the Wingly City...]

 Ancestor Blano: "The Dragon Block Staff is sealed in the Forbidden Land over
                 there."

 Dart: "Forbidden Land."

 Ancestor Blano: "It is the place where our hideous memory sleeps. It used to
                 be, until 11,000 years ago, a palace for us Winglies and it
                 was the place where eternal prosperity was promised. It was
                 called the royal capital Kadessa. Now it is a mere ruin
                 without a name."

 Dart: "Are you sure? Is it okay to go in?"

 Ancestor Blano: "It is fine. Everything is in the past."

 Dart: "I see. We have to do what we can do now."

 Ancestor Blano: "Are you ready?"
                 R1 -> Please wait a little.
                 R2 -> Yes we are.
 
                 R1: "Please wait a little."

                     Meru: "What's wrong? We don't know when the Divine Dragon
                           will come."

                     Dart: "I feel some monster over there."

                     Ancestor Blano: "There is still some magic power left. And
                                     it attracts monsters. It won't be an easy
                                     road to the Dragon Block Staff. When you
                                     are ready, come to me. I'll lead you to
                                     the Forbidden Land.

                 R2: "Yes we are."

[The Ancestor makes the towers spin and rocks create a circle.]

 Dart: "This is...the wisdom of the Winglies!?"

 Ancestor Blano: "It's a ruin of their wisdom. Let's go!!"

[They teleport to Kadessa, finally. It's red-colored and barren.]

 Dart: "So, this is the Forbidden Land. The ruins of past glory..."

 Albert: "No remnant of the royal capital remains."

 Dart: "What's wrong, Meru? You are shaking."

 Meru: "Cuz I, I hear the outcries of the people who died here."

 Dart: "Are you going to wait in the forest, Meru?"

 Meru: "No! I'm okay! If I can't get past such a small thing, how will I be
       able to fight against the Divine Dragon!?"

[Towards the center colosseum-type area...]

 Miranda: "It's such a large space."

 Haschel: "Indeed. I wonder what it was for?"

 Kongol: "Kongol feels.... Smells like blood."

 Albert: "'Blood', and a large space. It sounds like a coliseum."

 Meru: "Yes, it really was. I heard it from the Ancestor. Once upon a time, it
       was a coliseum. But it wasn't for regular fights that you won or lost.
       It was for matches to the death. Winglies would just enjoy the view from
       above...or fighters picked from among the dominated Humans, Dragons, and
       some Gigantos. I am the offspring of that kind of Wingly."

 Dart: "The Ancestor told us that this is a mere ruin, didn't he?"

 Meru: "..."

 Dart: "What happened here happened in the past. No matter what sorrow there
       was, it is no longer our sorrow. Isn't that right?"

 Albert: "There is nothing to worry about, Meru. The sins of the past are there
         just to tell us not to repeat them anymore."

 Dart: "Cheer up! Let's focus on moving on."

[Eventually the party can choose to go down a path split. 'PATH A' starts by
going down a teleporter from the savepoint room; 'PATH B' from the building
north of that area. First, PATH A. In a room nearby, Dart destroys a barrier
generator.]

 Meru: "That's right! It must be the seal for that! We can move on when we
       destroy'em all!"

 Dart: "I got it!

[Eventually the party gets to the DBS room.]

 Meru: "This is the Dragon Block Staff!!!"

 Miranda: "It doesn't look very impressive. Can we really constrain the Divine
          Dragon with this?"

 Rose: "You can never tell the size of the magical power from the size of the
       object. The power of this staff alone has been sealing off the Divine
       Dragon for more than 10,000 years."

 Miranda: "I see, then when we take this back and deploy our defense of the
          royal capital, the Divine Dragon will be no match for us."

 Rose: "It won't be as easy as you imagine. The Divine Dragon is not the same
       as the other Dragons. Even with the staff and us Dragoons, we will have
       reason for thanks if we can seal him back in."

 Dart: "Is Lloyd taming such a monster?"

 Rose: "Talking about that, I don't think it is possible. The Divine Dragon
       would never give in. They couldn't kill him either. That's why he was
       sealed in. It's way beyond Lloyd's ability to deal with."

 Dart: "Then, it means Lloyd has not taken any aciton yet?"

 Rose: "Maybe he cannot act."

 Albert: "There is no sign he is going after the next Divine Moon Object yet."

 Miranda: "The moon...object!?"

 Dart: "You must have it in Mille Seseau, don't you? A Divine Object with a
       name starting with Moon?"

 Miranda: "I don't want to talk about it."

 Dart: "How come?"

 Miranda: "It's not your business. Just focus on how you can bring the staff
          back now."

 Dart: "Okay."

 Meru: "I'm getting it! Whoa!! What the heck is this!?"

[Meru pulls down the Grand Jewel boss. But, it's defeated anyway.]

 [Acquired Dragon Block Staff]

 Albert: "We didn't know there was a guardian."

 Haschel: "The Ancestor should've told us so."

 Meru: "I didn't know that either."

 Dart: "Anyway, the Dragon Block Staff is in our hands. Let's go back quickly."

[PATH B time! An elevator descends to Dart eventually.]

 Dart: "What is this!?"

[Dart takes it up and finds a weird, flourescent being near a walkway.]

 Dart: It's a dead end here. Let's go back."

 Rose: "Wait! This is a Virage! And this scar!! It must be the Virage that
       killed Belzac."

 Dart: "You say this is a Virage?"

 Miranda: "What are you talking about?"

 Albert: "It was a destructive weapon of ancient legend that battled throughout
         the Dragon Campaign with the Winglies. Although some still remain."

 Meru: "But it looks totally different from the one we met before."

 Rose: "It's one of their subspecies and from its shape, it must have a power
       far beyond the one we saw. But, it's not a very pretty sight to see."

 Dart: "!!"

 Meru: "The Virage..."

 Dart: "The monster from ten thousand years ago. Was it awoken by us!?"

[After a bit of fighting.]

 Dart: "Everybody hang in there!! This thing is half dead!!"

[It finally dies.]

 Dart: "Why do Virages wake up in reaction to us?""

 Meru: "I dunno. The Ancestor never mentioned about this thingy."

 Rose: "So, does this mean they were not just reacting to Shana?"

 Dart: "Shana.... I still don't knwo anything about the mystery surrounding
       Shana. There is no choice for us but going forward. Come on, let's go
       back to the Crystal Palace.

[As the party tries to leave...]

 Dart: "!! It cannot be.... Is that the Divine Dragon!?"

 Miranda: "Don't be silly!! It's too early!! !!"

[A shadow flies overhead.]

 Miranda: "Oh no, Deningrad!!"

 Dart: "We gotta run!!"

[They return to the entrance.]

 Ancestor Blano: "Did you get the Dragon Block Staff!?"

 Dart: "We did! But the Divine Dragon!"

 Ancestor Blano: "I know! I am teleporting you to Deningrad!!"

 Meru: "Ancestor! It's too much! You don't have power like in the old days do
       you!?"
 
 Ancestor Blano: "We have no time left to think!! Hunnnnnnnnnnaaaaahhhhh!
                 Aaaaaaahhhhhh!"

 Meru's Father: "Ancestor Blano!!"

 Ancestor Blano: "I'm fine."

[Dart's team can't teleport.]

 Ancestor Blano: "It didn't work."

 Meru's Father: "Not yet!! We believe in Meru!! And her friends who Meru
                believes in too!!"

 Meru's Mother: "I would like to see the future that Meru and her friends
                create!!"

 Ancestor Blano: "Guaraha!? Go on! Dart!"

[Everyone helps teleport them to Deningrad.]

| Ch. 3 - 39 - Crystal Palace at Deningrad II                            DNG2 |
o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

[The Divine Dragon attacks the town, blows the seal chamber off the Crystal
Palace, then leaves in a hurry.]

 Miranda: "We're too late!! Is, is this Deningrad!? The Crystal Palace is
          destroyed!! Queen Theresa!! Don't be such a laggard!! Shana is in
          the castle too!!

[Just inside...]

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "Setie!! Luanna!! Wake up!!"

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "Ah.... S, Sister...Miranda?"

 Fourth Sacred Sister Setie: "Sister Miranda, are we...alive?"

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "Good. It seems you are not injured either."

 Fourth Sacred Sister Setie: "I, I was scared."

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "Stop crying. The Divine Dragon is gone. And we
                              will take care of it."

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "Did you get the Dragon Block Staff?"

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "Yes, we got it."

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "Now, we can prepare for the next raid."

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "What do you mean 'next'?"

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "The psyche that the Divine Dragon sent towards
                              the Crystal Palace was a black, bottomless mass
                              of hate. There must be a 'next'."

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "I won't let him!"

 Fourth Sacred Sister Setie: "What about Queen Theresa!? Is Queen Theresa
                             safe!?"

[Miranda slaps a soldier.]

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "Hey!! Wake up!!"

 Holy Knights Gate Keeper: "Ah, yes ma'am!! Sister Miranda!!"

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "Take care of these two!!"

[Miranda runs ahead.]

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "Don't worry. Queen Theresa is safe. Wink is
                              fine too. Everything is fine, thanks to her."

 Dart: "Are you all right!?"

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "We are fine. Sister Miranda went upstairs."

 Dart: "What about Shana!?"

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "She should be upstairs too.

[Upstairs...]

 Dart: "Wink! Are you all right!?"

 Third Sacred Sister Wink: "I am fine. Sister Miranda gave me treatment."

 Dart: "!! Shana's room!!"

 Third Sacred Sister Wink: "Wait! Miss Shana is alive! She must be upstairs
                           with Queen Theresa."

 Dart: "I got it!!"

[In the audience hall...]

 Meru: "Wow!"

 Dart: "What is this light?"

 Albert: "What is going on?"

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "I don't know. When I came here it was already
                              like this."

 Dart: "Shana!?"

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "Queen Theresa!! Where are you!?"

[The light ends and its source is Shana...]

 Dart: "Shana!!"

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "Queen Theresa!!"

 Shana: "Dart!?"

 Dart: "It's me! Can you understand?"

 Shana: "Dart.... Everybody.... You are safe. How about Queen Theresa?"

 Queen Theresa: "Ah...."

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "Queen Theresa!!"

 Queen Theresa: "Miranda?"

 Dart: "Don't worry. Queen Theresa is safe."
 
 Shana: "I'm relieved."

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "I couldn't live if something happened to Queen
                              Theresa. I'm relieved. I'm really relieved."

 Queen Theresa: "You cannot call Setie a crybaby anymore."

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "I don't care! Please let me cry for now, just
                              for now!"

[Later on...]

 Queen Theresa: "Everything has calmed down anyhow. Welcome back. And no one
                was lost. Fortunately, the damage to the people seems to be
                minimal. I assume we had the blessing of the Divine Tree."

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "What was that light? It was as if it were
                              protecting Queen Theresa and Shana."

 Dart: "Yes, the light was...."

[Flashback: before the Divine Dragon attacks Deningrad.]

 Queen Theresa: "Are you feeling all right?"

 Shana: "Not really, but I cannot stand still."

 Queen Theresa: "I see. It seems that all we can do is trust them and wait."

 Shana: "Yes, Your Majesty."

 Queen Theresa: "What is happening!?"

[Shana's light protects them both. Back to the present.]

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "Oh, this must be a miracle! Shana! You brought
                              us a miracle! My sisters were guarded by the same
                              light as well! Everyone was saved by you!"

 Shana: "But I don't know anything about this power. This power is forcing Dart
        to face danger. And, I harm people! The people in Seles too, it was my
        fault."

 Dart: "That's not true! It was Doel who did that!"

 Shana: "Who am I?"

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "She passed out."

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "It was my fault. I didn't know anything and I
                              told her too much. Where are you going?"

 Dart: "To the Mountain of Mortal Dragon."

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "Are you leaving Shana like that!?"

 Dart: "I'll come back after I defeat the Divine Dragon. Miranda, could you
       take care of Shana?"

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "Are you telling me to stay here!?"

 Dart: "The Divine Dragon is not the only monster in the Mt. of Mortal Dragon!
       You are a Sacred Sister of this country. There is no obligation for you
       to come with us."

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "Did you forget? I am one of the Dragoons, the
                              same as you. I have no intention to withdraw from
                              this battle. Besides, Shana told me. 'Please take
                              care of the rest'. I intend to keep that promise.

 Queen Theresa: "We have reached an agreement. Everyone, I am counting on you."

 Dart: "Yes, Your Majesty. Please trust us."

[In the town inn, Shana wakes.]

 Dart: "I'll bring everybody here."

 Meru: "Did the two of you have enough time alone? We can wait outside longer
       if you want."

 Haschel: "I didn't know you could be sensible, Meru! Ha ha ha!"

 Meru: "Of course! I learned how to care for others from them!"

 Haschel: "We gotta get going."

 Albert: "We will be back soon."

 Miranda: "Are you all right?"

 Rose: "I cannot believe your timing."

 Miranda: "That is no way to talk to a friend!"

 Rose: "I haven't seen your power as a Dragoon, have I?"

 Miranda: "Are you saying you don't trust me!?"

 Shana: "Please stop. Miranda is fine. She can do better than me."

 Rose: "I hope so."

 Miranda: "Is she like that all the time?"

 Shana: "Actually Rose is concerned about me."

 Miranda: "What a clumsy woman."

 Kongol: "Kongol is leaving. You rest. Good for you."

 Dart: "I am leaving. ..."

[Outside the inn where Shana is...]

 Dart: "Let's go to the Mt. Dragon Tomb."

[In Evergreen Forest, they find a knight.]

 Sacred Knight: "The monster was headed in the direction of Deningrad, and then
                came back to the Mountain of Mortal Dragon!!"

 Dart: "Before the Divine Dragon left, did anybody pass through here?"

 Sacred Knight: "No, sir! No one, sir. We didn't even let a mouse pass, sir!
                Unless they can fly like that monster!"

 Miranda: "Gotcha. Stay on guard here. We are off to defeat the monster."

 Sacred Knight: "Yes ma'am!! Good luck!!"

| Ch. 3 - 40 - Mountain of Mortal Dragon                                 MTM1 |
o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

[Up the mountainside, a large beam of energy flies out from somewhere.]

 Miranda: "It is from the top of Mountain of Mortal Dragon!!"

 Meru: "THat was a magic power! An awfully powerful mega magic!"

 Haschel: "Whatever it is, that is our destination."

 Rose: "As if.... It is unburdening his anger all over the world. The anger 
       toward the Winglies who sealed him."

 Albert: "And us Humans who dominated Dragons."

 Miranda: "Then, does this mean that Deningrad was chosen to be the place for
          the declaration of war!?"
 
 Dart: "We will settle that on the top of the Mountain of Mortal Dragon. Before
       the next town becomes a victim."

[Near the summit...]

 Rose: "The sound of swords.... No, has somebody already started to fight
       against it!? Let's go. Either way, we will have to join in."

[The sound of swords is nearby...]

 Rose: "You can go back now.

 Dart: "There is nobody who would think that way."

 Meru: "Um. May I excuse myself for a bit?"

 Haschel: "You are the representative of the Winglies! Come on!"

 Miranda: "Are you going back to your forest to hide?"

 Meru: "I, I was just kidding!! When I do it I can do it!!"

 Albert: "I made up my mind. Anyway.... If the people of Serdio knew about
         this, they would all fall over."
 
 Dart: "Let's do it! !? Lloyd!?"

[Lloyd is the one fighting the Divine Dragon.

 Lloyd: "It is earlier than I expected. Well, it is the future King of Dragons.
        Even with the Dragon Buster, which can kill Dragons, he still gave me a
        hard time. But he is almost dead. There is no need for you to come in."

 Dart: "You say you are fighting against the Divine Dragon!?"

 Albert: "You broke the seal on the strongest Dragon of all, but you couldn't
         control it! It's the truth, isn't it!?"

 Miranda: "What are you yapping about!? We can kill this man anytime!! We have
          to defeat the Divine Dragon first!!"

 Lloyd: "The Sacred Sister of Mille Seseau, I see the replacement for that
        girl. How convenient for us."

 Dart: "Shut up!! Urgh!!"

[Lloyd has fled somehow.]

 Dart: "Yaaaaaaaarrgghh!!"

[The party defeats the Divine Dragon and Lloyd stabs its eye. Lloyd gets the
 Divine Dragon Spirit.]

 Dart: "Th, that is...!"

 Lloyd: "Yes. This is the Dragoon Spirit. This is the soul of the Divine
        Dragon. The flame of a soul that sparkles only at the last moment of a
        dragon's life...its crystal is the Dragoon Spirit! As I expected, it
        doesn't sparkle in my hands."

 Dart: "Lloyd!! That was your purpose wasn't it!?"

 Lloyd: "This is just a little prize for me."

 Dart: "A 'prize'!?"

 Lloyd: "I don't need additional power to destroy the world. The Divine Dragon
        was a mere obstacle to my ideal. I fought against it for that reason
        only."

 Albert: "You're the one who formed the conspiracy to destroy the world!"

 Lloyd: "The King of Serdio, what brought you all the way here? Is it the
        frustration of having your Moon taken? Or your feelings toward your
        loyal friend, Lavitz?"

 Dart: "Don't even mention that name!"

 Lloyd: "It is too early yet to settle things."

 Dart: "Wait!"

 Lloyd: "Don't be so hasty. I'll see you soon."

[He teleports out.]

 Dart: "Where is he going!?"

 Albert: "He is leaving the mountain! Chase him!"

[The party retraces their steps down the mountain and finds Lloyd.]

 Dart: "Lloyd! !!"

[He fires a flameball and knocks Dart & Rose off a ledge.]

 Dart: "Argh!! I didn't know he was one of the Winglies!! Rose!? Rose! Come
       on!"

 Rose: "Ah. Ahh...."

 Dart: "Can you tell me who I am!?"

 Rose: "I thought...you were dead."

 Dart: "...?"

 Rose: "Don't worry, I am carrying out your will. We took this world back
       together, I won't let them ruin it. Virage...embryo. The moon...with
       black power."

 Dart: "'Black Power'? Are you talking about the Black Monster!?"

[Flashback: Neet 18 Years ago]

 Knight of Mille Seseau: "UUURRRGGGHH!!"

[In the forest, Dart's family flees.]

 Dart's Father: "Stay here. Take care of Dart."

[He returns to town.]

 Dart's Mother: "Your father is a strong person. You have that strength in you.
                So.... You can wait here by yourself, okay."

 Dart: "Where are you going?"

 Dart's Mother: "I am going back to the village to fight."

 Dart: "Really?"

 Dart's Mother: "I will protect your hometown and your father. Live strong."

[The next morning, Dart strolls through the ashes of town.]

 Dart: "Mom? Dad? This is my dad's...important...shiny stone. Mom. Dad."

[Back in the present time...]

 Dart: "'Count 108 years, and when the Moon That Never Sets glares red, the
       Moon Child descends to the earth to give a holy blessing to the world.'
       Fester said.... What really appears is not the Moon Child, but the Black
       Monster. What kind of relationship exists between the Black Monster who
       destroys all and the Moon Child who blesses the world?" (Rose, what do
       you know about this?)

 Meru: "Dart!! Rose!! Finally! I found you guys!! Oh boy, Rose! She passed out!
       Move away! I'll carry Rose first!"

[She carries them up.]

 Meru: "Darn! I'm beaten!"

 Rose: "It's my fault, letting him go.... I apologize for it."
 
 Dart: "It is not your fault, Rose. Nobody knew he was a Wingly who can use
       magic."

 Haschel: "Don't worry. We will find out where he went."

 Albert: "I agree. Lloyd's objectives are still the Divine Moon Objects."

 Dart: "Miranda, there is no need for you to hide it. Tell us about the Divine
       Moon Object in Mille Seseau."

 Meru: "It's not like you, Miranda. Don't hesistate."

 Miranda: "I guess, there is no choice but to tell everything. The Divine Moon
          Objects are said to be brought by Winglies. And, it is said that they
          have a dreadful magic power concealed within. That is the reason why
          they were never allowed to be taken outside. A national treasure that
          has been kept a close secret. It is called the Moon Mirror. The
          successive thrones have been the keys to opening the seal. Oh, it 
          cannot be!"

 Dart: "Queen Theresa is in danger!"

[Meanwhile, in Evergreen Forest, Wink and some knights are walking.]

 Third Sacred Sister Wink: "I wonder where Sister Miranda and the other people
                           area...? And, if they're safe?"

 Commander of Sacred Knights: "To make sure of that we, the Sacred Brotherhood,
                              are going to act as reinforcements. Don't worry
                              there is no way our Sister Miranda can lose."

 Sacred Knight A: "Yes indeed. We cannot imagine her losing."

 Sacred Knight B: "But, I cannot imagine that the giant Dragon will lose
                  either."

 Third Sacred Sister Wink: "Please don't say such an ill-omened thing!"

 Sacred Knight B: "I, I'm sorry ma'am!"

 Commander of Sacred Knights: "Sister Miranda, Dart, and company are legendary
                              Dragoons. We might not be needed."

 ?????: "Dragoons!? They are mere Humans anyway!!"

[The Younger Bardel appears.]

 Third Sacred Sister Wink: "Who is it!?"

 Younger Bardel: "Humans don't need to know my name!"

 Third Sacred Sister Wink: "Oh no! Are you a Wingly?"

 Younger Bardel: "Yes I am! We were the rulers of you Humans in ancient
                 Endiness!! And now!! I am your executioner!!"

[He fires a fireball at the knights, knocking them over.]

 Third Sacred Sister Wink: "Oh my god!! This is what you asked for! This is
                           the great battle of liberation!! And your scream
                           is its overture!! You conceited Humans! Go tell
                           hell!!"

[Lloyd protects Wink.]

 Lloyd: "The conceited one is you."

 Third Sacred Sister Wink: "Oh, you are...Mr. Lloyd!!"

 Lloyd: "You are so easily overtaken."

 Younger Bardel: "You blocked the magic power. Who are you!?"

 Lloyd: "I don't need to answer you."

 Younger Bardel: "Watch your mouth!!"

 Third Sacred Sister Wink: "Mr. Lloyd!!"

 Younger Bardel: "I won't let anybody hinder the liberation of Winglies!! I'll
                 annihilate all Humans!!"

 Lloyd: "'Liberation' of Winglies? Hmph! You are so old-fashioned. A world
        without Humans? It won't be any different from the forest you are
        cooped up in. ... I have made many sacrifices for my ideals. But your
        ideals cannot be achieved unless you annihilate everything?"

 Younger Bardel: "Of course!! My grudge!! My hatred!! I will settle'em all
                 with human lives!!"

 Lloyd: "You should not be alive."

 Younger Bardel: "!!"

[He stabs him with the Dragon Buster.]

 Younger Bardel: "I, I won't die alone!!"

[He self-destructs (LOL?), but Lloyd is only injured.]

 Third Sacred Sister Wink: "Mr. Lloyd?"

 Lloyd: "I went out of my way...."

 Third Sacred Sister Wink: "Oh, you are wounded!! Please let us treat you at
                           the castle!"

[As the party tries to leave the forest.]

 Commander of Sacred Knights: "Sister Miranda!!"

 Miranda: "Oh, Commander of Knights!! We were successful in defeating the
          Divine Dragon and!! What happened to you. You are injured!?"

 Commander of Sacred Knights: "Queen Theresa... Queen Theresa was abducted!!"

 Miranda: "Wh, what did you say!?"

 Dart: "By who!?"

 Commander of Sacred Knights: "A man called L, Lloyd!!"

 Dart: "We are too late!!"

[Miranda punches him.]

 Miranda: "What were you doing!!"

 Albert: "Do you know where he took her?"

 Commander of Sacred Knights: "Well.... Sister Wink might know something!"

 Miranda: "My sisters are safe aren't they!?"

 Commander of Sacred Knights: "Everyone is waiting for the group to come back
                              to the Crystal Palace!!"

o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

[Back at the palace...]

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "What do you mean that Queen Theresa was taken
                              away!? What happened!?"

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "Let me tell you. A few days ago, when the
                              howling of the Dragon from the Mountain of Mortal
                              Dragon stopped. We assumed he had been success-
                              -fully vanquished."

 Fourth Sacred Sister Setie: "Everyone, everyone was happy about it."

[Flashback: a few days prior.]

 Queen Theresa: "How long has it been since we have stopped hearing the howling
                of the Divine Dragon?"

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "It has been about one week now."

 Fourth Sacred Sister Setie: "Don't worry! Sister Luanna said 'The feeling of
                             the Divine Dragon is gone'!"

[Wink enters.]

 Third Sacred Sister Wink: "I am back. I have good news for you, Queen Theresa.
                           As Sister Luanna said, it seems they defeated the
                           Divine Dragon."

 Queen Theresa: "I am glad. Now we can focus on the recovery of the country. I
                appreciate it Wink. Please give the knights their well-earned
                rest."

 Third Sacred Sister Wink: "About the knights.... My knighthood is currently
                           being treated. A Wingly who had something against
                           Humans suddenly raided us."

 Queen Theresa: "Winglies attacked you? According to Miranda, they are a
                friendly species."

 ???: "Some of the Winglies are militant."

[Lloyd enters.]

 Third Sacred Sister Wink: "This gentleman repelled them so that we were able
                           to come back to the castle safe and sound. Let me
                           introduce him. His name is Mr. Lloyd, Your Majesty.

 Lloyd: "It is a pleasure to meet you, Your Majesty."

 Third Sacred Sister Wink: "Not only that, it was Mr. Lloyd who gave us the
                           good news of the successful vanquishing of the
                           Divine Dragon."

 Queen Theresa: "... How did you find out about it?"

 Lloyd: "It was, a coincidence. I saw Sister Miranda and her companions who
        completed the vanquishing in the Mt. Dragon Tomb."

 Queen Theresa: "... I understand. Let me express my gratitude to you."

 Third Sacred Sister Wink: "Actually, it was not the first time I was saved by
                           Mr. Lloyd."

 Fourth Sacred Sister Setie: "Oh! I remember! This gentleman is the man of the
                             fate Sister Wink was talking about, isn't he!?
                             Queen Theresa, she was saved from the bandits in
                             Donau by this gentleman too!"

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "It wasn't a coincidence, was it? Helping Wink,
                              and coming here."

 Third Sacred Sister Wink: "Sister Luanna? What are you talking about?"

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "The murderous intention you conceal inside...
                              You cannot disguise it in front of me."

 Queen Theresa: "Wink, Setie stay back. I felt it too, something very wrong."

 Lloyd: "I hadn't intended to make a scene. However, sometimes it can't be
        avoided."

 Fourth Sacred Sister Setie: "Queen Theresa!!"

 Third Sacred Sister Wink: "Mr. Lloyd. What on earth...?"

 Queen Theresa: "Do not come closer! What do you want!?"

 Lloyd: "I desire the Moon Mirror."

 Queen Theresa: "Moon Mirror! H, How did you know about it!?"

 Lloyd: "You don't need to worry about that. You should just take me there,
        Your Majesty."

 Third Sacred Sister Wink: "Answer me. From the beginning...from the beginning,
                           it was your purpose?"

 Queen Theresa: "Wink! Get away!"

 Lloyd: "I...just desire the power to create a utopia."

 Second Sacred Sister Luanna: "Queen Theresa! He is reading your mind!!"

 Lloyd: "Shall we go to the last Divine Moon Object?"

[He and the queen teleport out. Back to present day...]

 Dart: "The last Divine Moon Object? Is he going to end this!? Miranda! Where
       is the Moon Mirror!?"

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "In the Tower of Flanvel, to the west of Kashua
                              Glacier."

 Rose: "Theresa is the key to the tower."

 First Sacred Sister Miranda: "I'll take care of the rest."

 Third Sacred Sister Wink: "Sister Miranda."

 Dart: "We will bring Queen Theresa back! We are not going to let Lloyd get
       what he wants!"

 Dart: "What a cold place."

 Haschel: "It pierces through my aged bones."

 Miranda: "It is a land where the earth is eternally covered in ice. I
          understand that it must be harsh on someone who has never been
          here."

 Meru: "Darn, I'm totally dying! Do you often visit sucha place, Miranda?"

 Miranda: "It's been awhile since I came all the way here. But, I would often
          come here to find solace for my loneliness."

 Meru: "You've got such a kind mother like Queen Theresa, how could you have
       a 'lonely time'?"

 Miranda: "Her Majesty Theresa is not my birth mother. My true birth mother
          abandoned me. After that, I met Her Majesty Theresa. Her Majesty
          Theresa cherished me when I was alone, as if I were her real
          daughter. Since then, I've never felt loneliness again."

[Dart approaches a weird wind-blowing noise further on.]

 Dart: "!? What?"

 Kongol: "Kongol feels. Monster angry. About we entered here."

 Haschel: "I cannot imagine what they are thinking to live in such a cold
          place."

 Kongol: "Monster, don't know coldness. Monster only knows to kill. It wants
         kill us."
 
 Haschel: "Thank you but no thank you."

 Miranda: "Here it comes!"

[The party defeats Windigo.]

 Dart: "We barely defeated...."

 Haschel: "Thanks to that, I got warmed up."

 Miranda: "Hurry up, we are moving on! The Tower of Flanvel is back there!"

[They reach the tower.]

 Dart: "Look."

 Miranda: "This is the Tower of Flanvel. It's the ruin where the Moon Mirror
          was placed."

 Meru: "It's a swirl."

 Albert: "Again, this doesn't appear to be built by Humans."

 Rose: "No, it's not. According to the legend, it was the Winglies' floating
       fort during the Dragon Campaign. I heard."

 Haschel: "This can fly!?"

 Rose: "Winglies in the past used to have an enormous amount of magic power."

 Dart: "Then it wouldn't be strange if this much magic power is concealed in
       the Divine Moon Objects."

 Albert: "For the people of Serdio, for King Zior, and for Princess Emille.
         No. This is a life or death matter for all of Endiness."

 Dart: "That's even more of a reason. We must stop the ambitions of Lloyd
       here!"

[The party spots a weird thing inside.]

 Albert: "Is this a plant?"

 Haschel: "I don't know what it is, but it is completely covered."

 Albert: "It must be at least 11,000 years since it was dropped on the earth."

 Meru: "But I think this is a better one. Cuz, usually the ruins of Winglies
       are destroyed. Also, the magical teleporting device was working too."

 Dart: "It is the place the royal family of Mille Seseau placed the Moon
       Mirror. I guess some functions are still working."

[The party uses a teleportation system, and then...]

 Miranda: "The Moon Mirror is in there!"

 Rose: "The Dragoon Spirit of the Divine Dragon is resonating."

 Dart: "Lloyd!! Finally, we cornered him!!

[In the Moon Mirror chamber...]

 Lloyd: "I appreciate your cooperation."

 Theresa: "What...are you...?"

 Dart: "Lloyd!!"

 Lloyd: "Here they are. I just got all three Divine Moon Objects. Now the world
        will be reborn into the utopia that Emperor Diaz and I desire."

 Dart: "The world will be reborn?! What are you talking about?!"

 Lloyd: "You should know, Your Majesty. The revolutionary plan created by the
        great will, Soa. And the flow of evolution woven by the Divine Tree.
        You Humans are merely the 106th in the plan. And...we Winglies are the
        107th in the plan. I desire the 108th evolution! I desire a utopia
        created by the last species! For that, I will use every conceivable
        means!!"

 Dart: "Lloyd, that's all you have to say!?"

 Lloyd: "I'll let my sword say the rest. Shall we finish up!?"

[The party defeats Lloyd. As Dart attempts to deal the final blow, Wink goes
and protects Lloyd, taking a sword slash for him.]

 Third Sacred Sister Wink: "Please...forgive Lloyd."

[All allies except Dart leave the chamber.]

 Rose: "Albert, don't you need to be upstairs? Lloyd killed...Lavitz."

 Albert: "I trust Dart with everything. He will bring us the right answer."

 Rose: "I agree."

 Haschel: "I feel the same way."

 Meru: "Ditto!"

[Upstairs...]

 Lloyd: "Why? Why did you shield me? I took many people's lives away for my
        own ideal, and the Divine Moon Objects. I used you."

 Wink: "Even if it is the truth.... The fact that you saved me is still true!
       Besides, your death won't solve anything. Shana was taken away!"

 Dart: "Wh, what did you say!?"

 Wink: "By the man named Emperor Diaz. He told us to bring the three Divine
       Moon Objects and Lloyd and come to Vellweb."

 Lloyd: "Hmm, Emperor Diaz.... Finally he has begun to take action by himself.
        Now, take them to him. Even without me, my utopia will be build by
        Emperor Diaz. I completed all my tasks. Now, I have to settle up for
        what I have done so far. Kill me, and go to Vellweb! I dedicate my
        death to your departure!"

[Dart socks him good.]

 Lloyd: "Is it out of pity?"

 Dart: "Your death won't bring...anybody who died back! Lloyd, I'm gonna make
       you see it through to the end!"

[Dart leaves.]

 Lloyd: "Passion.... Is this the power that drives them?"

[Downstairs...]

 Albert: "Shana was....I see."

 Rose: "When we go there, we can reveal the truth about the Emperor Diaz."

 Albert: "Whoever he is, he is dangerous."

 Haschel: "Besides! It is unforgivable to take our dear Shana as a hostage for
          his utopia or whatever!"

 Meru: "Exactly! I'll beat him up whoever he is!!"

 Dart: "Queen Theresa, we are heading to Vellweb. And we need to find the
       Moon...."

 Theresa: "I understand. I will let you have the Moon Mirror. Maybe we were in
          denial, surrounding ourselves with a comfortable life that really
          was stagnant. Yes, we Humans are not the only species....and all
          species were given life by Soa's plan. Now is the time to remember.
          The sassault of the Divine Dragon, the existence of Winglies, the
          Divine Moon Objects, the utopia that Lloyd and Emperor Diaz
          desire.... And you, Dragoons. Everything is forcing us to remember
          it. As if things were manipulated by some great will called fate."

 Dart: "Even if so, I don't care. I will take Shana back even from 'fate'!"

 Theresa: "Miranda, you are one of the Dragoons. Go with Dart. Discover the
          meaning of the fate given by Soa."

[At the entrance...]

 Dart: "Can I ask you one question?"

 Lloyd: "Yes."

 Dart: "Why did you save Wink twice?"

 Lloyd: "I had no reason for doing that."

 Dart: "I see." [Acquired Moon Mirror, Acquired Moon Dagger, Acquired Moon Gem]

[The party stops near a cave.]

 Lloyd: "I have something to tell you before we go to Vellweb. It's about Diaz.

 Dart: "I see. With this blizzard.... It's not a bad time to take a break."

[They go in the toasty cave. The screen goes black.]

 Diaz: "...Make the world regenerate."

 Lloyd: "Regeneration...of the world?"

[Flashback: Ruin of Kadessa 3 years ago]

 Diaz: "The world now is rotten, like a fallen fruit. It has the same smell as
       the world ruled by Melbu Frahma, the Wingly dictator. The world...where
       inertia is considered to be peace, adn the easy path leads to
       devolution. The overture to the destruction has already begun."

 Lloyd: "'Devolution'... You are saying that is the reason why our magic power
        is deteriorating?"

 Diaz: "It is not only for you Winglies. It is the danger all species are
       facing."

 Lloyd: "Now, how can we regenerate the world?"

 Diaz: "You Winglies are merely the 107th species. The great will, the creator
       Soa prepared the last...the 108th species. The last species is the last
       god, which will regenerate the world and lead us to utopia!"

[Back in the Snowfield cave...]

 Lloyd: "'Count 108 years and when the Moon That Never Sets glares red, the
        Moon Child descends to the earth and shall give a holy blessing to the
        world.' The 'Moon Child' of this legend is the last species. It is the
        god that gives holy bliss to the world."

 Rose: "That's not true."

 Lloyd: "It is the truth. Then why does the Black Monster continue to kill the
        Moon Child?"

 Rose: "..."

 Lloyd: "That devil wants to stop the evolution, after imagining himself
        scorched to death by the blessed light brought by the last species."

 Dart: "Lloyd. What is the relationship between the Divine Moon Objects you
       have been pursuing, and the birth of the Moon Child?"

 Lloyd: "The ancient Winglies feared their status as the supreme species would
        end, and sealed up the 108th species. The keys to dissolving the signet
        are the gem, dagger, and mirror named after the moon."

 Albert: "You were going to release the Moon Child, in other words, the 'God',
         using the Divine Moon Objects."

 Lloyd: "If I don't do it, somebody else will. Even the last god cannot escape
        from the fate determined by Soa. That's all that I wanted to tell you.
        The rest will be told by Diaz."

 Dart: "If you desire a utopia, why did you take Shana away!? What is Shana to
       you!?"

 Lloyd: "All the truth will be told in Vellweb."

 Meru: "Dart! The blizzard is over!"

[The party slides down a snowy slope accidentally and ends up by...]

 Meru: "Hey! It's your fault Dart! You slipped and we all ended up in here!
       Oh!? These are the ancient characters of the Winglies! Let mse read it.
       'Winglies, ouch, mos.' Oops. It's too hard to read."

 Dart: "Can't you do better than that? There are some Human characters too....

 Kongol: "Gigantos too."

 Dart: "... ... I was bad at classics. Can you ready some of them, Rose?"

 Rose: "'The cursed land where the decline of the Winglies began. Nobody is
       allowed to touch the door. The judge Nomos of the court of Zenebatos.'"

 Dart: "'Zenebatos'...?"

 Rose: "It was one of the most prosperous cities of the ancient Winglies."

 Dart: "It's over there?"

 Rose: "No. If my memory is correct, over there should be Fort Magrad. But
       Vellweb is up there. Let's go back quickly."

 Dart: "Okay.

[If the party decides to enter the fort...]

 Meru: "Yoo-hoo, Dart!!"

 Rose: "I thought we have no business in here?"

 Dart: "But, look at Meru. Let's give her a little break."

[Meru smacks Dart with a snowball.]

 Meru: "You said this is Fort Magrad. Is this one of the Winglies' ruins too?"

 Rose: "No. It belonged to Humans. It was the land where Diaz declared war
       against the Winglies with tens of thousands of soldiers and seven
       Dragoons. I heard about it."

 Meru: "Dart!! Let's keep going!!"

[A ledge overlooks a court area.]

 Dart: "Rose?"

 Rose: (Dragoons are descending here in this place again.)

[Rose recalls her friend talking in the distant past...]

 Diaz: "What we desire is freedom!! Or give us death!!"

 Liberation Army of Humans: "God bless Diaz!! God bless Gloriano!!"

 Diaz: "I am to bring light to the Humans' future! I am to pass judgment on
       the past of the Winglies! I am Diaz!!"

 Liberation Army of Humans: "God Bless Diaz!! God Bless Gloriano!! God Bless
                            Diaz!! God Bless Gloriano!! God Bless Diaz!! God
                            Bless Gloriano!!"

[Rose snaps out of it.]

 Dart: "Rose. Is anything wrong?"

 Rose: "No, nothing.... Let's move on. We don't need to say here any longer."

[In the court area...]

 Rose: "..."

[Rose recalls a conversation from the olden days...]

 Diaz: "You, I heard you are going to have a wedding after this battle. There
       is no nguarantee of coming back alive."

 Zieg: "Even if one of us dies, our bonds of affection are forever."

 Rose: "Zieg."

 Diaz: "Your eyes are already looking at our future! Then I will realize it
       for you!"

[Back in the present.]

 Rose: "..."

 Dart: "Sometimes.... I don't know. If you are really the Rose I know...."

 Rose: "I am...just me."

 Dart: "!?"

[A sword springs to life of its own volition.]

 Rose: "Because the Dragoons made an appearance. It seems the souls of the
       soldiers who died in the Dragon Campaign have awakened."

[The Polter Armor is defeated.]

 Rose: "I cannot complain that people bear grudges against me."

o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

 Lloyd: "Here we are at the Capital City Vellweb."

 Dart: "The seven towers.... Is Diaz waiting for us somewhere in there?"

 Lloyd: "That is the tower of the seven Dragoons. The throne of the Holy
        Emperor is underneath there."

 Albert: "We are standing at the legendary place where Humans began their
         liberation. I wonder if it is an abominable place as well?"

 Meru: "You think too much. It's the same as Kadessa, isn't it? When you drag
       the past around, you cannot walk anywhere."

 Albert: "It is true, Meru. The Forbidden Land that was the royal capital of
         the Winglies. And this Vellweb is a mere historic ruin."

 Dart: "Yes. We can do nothing but settle for the present."

[A ways in...]

 Rose: "Dart, look at that huge battery. Humans shot huge arrows from there.
       Aiming at the Tower of Flanvel. And back then, Humans thought this way.
       'That the arrow would not only shear the darkness that covers the
       earth. But also shear their corrupted hearts which were accustomed to
       being ruled.'"

 Dart: "Why are you suddenly starting to say this?"

 Rose: "I don't know. I still cannot tell. But if we meet the guy who claims
       he is Diaz, I think we can find out the reason. I'm speaking nonsense
       again. Let's keep going. A hero from history is waiting for us."

[Near the Dragoons' tower...]

 Shirley: "I have been waiting for you."

 Dart: "You are Shirley!?"

 Rose: "Why? Why are you here? You ascended to heaven I thought...."

 Shirley: "Before that, I had something I had to take care of here in Vellweb.
          I couldn't leave the trapped souls alone in this world."

 Rose: "Are you talking about...?"

 Shirley: "Yes. The four souls of the Dragoons who lost their lives during the
          Dragon Campaign. Their souls were drawn to Mayfil. The gate of the
          inferno from which you can never return, is requesting the souls of
          the Dragoons."

 Rose: "The Death City Mayfil!? I thought it was destroyed!?"

 Shirley: "I don't know how, but it is true that the gate of the inferno is
          open. Rose, I made their souls inert and anchored them in this place.
          But there is a ilmit to my power. After you meet Diaz, please visit
          this place again. And lead their souls to heaven."

[Shirley disappears.]

 Rose: "The souls of the Dragoons are wandering somewhere in the towers. But,
       we have to take care of something else now. Let's go find Diaz.

[Below, the party finds an area where Shana is.]

 Dart: "Shana!!"

[A mysterious force picks her up and bring sher over.]

 Dart: "!!"

 Lloyd: "Diaz. Here are all three Divine Moon Objects. There are no more
        obstacles to hinder our utopia. Release the girl."

 Diaz: "Fine."

[Shana is returned.]

 Albert: "Diaz!! What are you going to do with the Divine Moon Objects?"

 Diaz: "Didn't you hear it from Lloyd? My only desire is the advent of the
       last species."

 Rose: "If you are the true Diaz, you should know what that implies?"

 Diaz: "Total destruction."

 Lloyd: "Wha, what do you...?"

 Diaz: "Lloyd. Well done bringing me the Moon Gem, Moon Dagger and Moon Mirror.
       Now we can let the Virage Embryo, the God of Destruction, the last
       species we desire, the true Virage, arise. I will create the utopia you
       wanted, after the Virage Embryo purges the world."

 Rose: "Everything so far was an overture to that. Lloyd. He showed you a false
       utopia from the beginning."

 Lloyd: "You deceived me. My utopia exists in the future of this world. What I
        desire is the creation of the future! Not the destruction of this
        world!!"

 Diaz: "I don't need you anymore."

 Lloyd: "Argh!!"

[Diaz uses magic to slam Lloyd through the floor, down a long, long ways...]

 Dart: "Diaz!! What are you thinking!?"

 Diaz: "I don't need to hide anymore."

[He takes off his mask.]

 Zieg: "It's been awhile, Rose. Dart."

 Dart: "Father?"

 Rose: "Zieg! Oh, it cannot be!"

 Dart: "Is that really you Dad!?"

 Rose: "You died!! With Melbu Frahma on each other's swords!!"

 Dart: "Rose, what are you talking about?"

 Zieg: "Now, I can tell you everything. The beginning of the world was an
       absolute nothingness...darkness. The Creator Soa sowed a seed to the
       earth. This is the plan of Soa, that created all species. The birth of
       the Divine Tree.... Eventually, the fruit of the Divine Tree ripened
       and fell to the ground to fill the world with life. Gigantos from the
       97th fruit. Minitos from the 99th fruit. Dragons from the 105th fruit.
       Humans from the 106th fruit. Winglies with magic power from the 107th
       fruit....and at the end, the Virage Embryo, the God of Destruction, was
       to be born from the 108th fruit. Soa desired the destruction and
       regeneration of the world by the Virage Embryo, the God of Destruction.
       However, 11,000 years ago, Winglies found out the tragedy waiting for
       them, and sealed the 108th fruit by separating the flesh and soul. The
       flesh of the god, the flesh of the Virage Embryo was taken away from the
       Winglies as the Moon That Never Sets that glows in the sky. And the soul
       of the god was captured in the Crystal Sphere and Melbu Frahma kept it.
       Yes, to withdraw unlimited magic power from that, and to conquer the
       other creatures. However, even with unlimited magic power, the
       domination was not eternal. Humans arose with Dragoons in front. Nothing
       was their match because they obtained the power of the dragon. And
       finally, they drove Melbu Frahma into a corner. I felt certain of human
       ...my victory. And it was in the next moment, the spell of petrification
       cast by Melbu captured me. I have waited for 11,000 years. Time, almost
       eternal, dissolved the spell of Melbu. And I was released from captivity
       Days spent with Rose became the eternal past. And I lived as the father
       of Dart in this age. Until the tragic day in Neet."

 Rose: "I cannot believe it."

 Zieg: "I am here, that is a fact."

 Dart: "Then, both Dad and Rose...are the heroes of the Dragon Campaign!?"

 Zieg: "Yes. But, that's not all. Humans made a mistake. Silly Humans destroyed
       the Crystal Sphere, which was the container of the soul along with the
       royal capital Kadessa. The Virage Embryo, the God of Destruction was
       exultant. It could now be born. The free soul released from the Crystal
       Sphere started to wander. In order to go back to the body left in the
       Moon That Never Sets, to be born as the last god, and to destroy the
       world. The soul without a body possesses a human body and heads for the
       Moon That Never Sets, by repeating the transmigration every 108 years.
       You now know. The soul of the God of Destruction is the Moon Child. The
       truth of the Moon Child in the legend. 'Count 108 years and when the
       Moon That Never Sets glares in red, the Moon Child descends to the earth
       and shall give a holy blessing to the world.' The 'Holy blessing' is the
       destruction. The destruction is Soa's will. This is...the fate that 
       rules the future of the world. But, there was one Dragoon who found out
       about it. In order to deter the birth of the God of Destruction, she has
       had to kill the Moon Children. By stopping her own time. She was even
       called a demon. That is the true self of Rose...the Black Monster!!"

 Dart: "Rose is...the Black...Monster?"

 Rose: "..."

 Dart: "Tell me it's not true!!"

 Rose: "The Moon Child has to be killed. And the people around it too, before
       they become the servants of the God of Destruction."

 Dart: "Neet...too!?"

 Rose: "For 11,000 years there have been no exceptions."

 Dart: "God!!! Why you!! Why do you have to be the Black Monster!?"

 Zieg: "That's it."

[Zieg takes Shana.]

 Dart: "What are you going to do!?"

 Zieg: "Let me tell you one more truth. Rose, you thought the Princess Louvia
       you killed 18 years ago was the Moon Child, but it is not true."

 Rose: "!?"

 Zieg: "Louvia had a twin sister."

 Rose: "N, No!!"

 Zieg: "Shana is the Moon Child!! Shana is...the soul of the Virage Embryo,
       the God of Destruction!! I'll dissolve the Signet of the Moon That Never
       Sets, and cross it with the Moon Child. Now, I have everything in my
       hands."

 Dart: "Release Shana!!"

 Zieg: "And you are going to kill her? To save the world?"

 Rose: "I'll kill her!!"

[Rose is rebuffed.]

 Zieg: "This is the limitation of Humans."

 Rose: "Zieg!! Why!?"

 Zieg: "All is the will of the creator, Soa. My hands start the world, and my
       hands end the world. Yes! Fate desires it."

 Dart: "Dad!! Wait!! Shana!!"

[Following events in Vellweb, the party treks through a large desert region.]

 Meru: "I'm totally beaten!"

 Albert: "We came all this way and we cannot go back."

 Haschel: "Yes we did."

 Kongol: "No need to return. The city of Winglies, Rose said, is just over
         there."

 Haschel: "What was it called, Ulara...? I hope we can find out what we should
          do there."

 Meru: "I hope so too."

[In a nearby cave.]

 Dart: "Who could imagine there is such a place under the ground of the desert?

 Albert: "It must be a cavity created when the water dried up. The world is
         going on without knowing anything. Without knowing until the end....
         I wonder if this little world has experienced an end like that."

 Dart: "It is not determined yet that our world will end."

 Albert: "That's true. We are still here."

[After awhile, the party encounters an oasis.]

 Meru: "Water!"

 Haschel: "It's refreshing!"

 Kongol: "Here no monster. We can rest now."

 Miranda: "What will the Winglies in Ulara know?"

 Rose: "They should know the way we, or at least 'I', should take. So, there
       is no need for you to come."

 Miranda: "Are you still saying that? Don't you understand it is no longer a
          problem for you alone!?"

 Rose: "You just found it out a couple of days ago and now you think you can
       judge me? It is not as easy as pursuing one Wingly."

[Rose gets slapped.]

 Miranda: "You, you say it was 'easy'!? Don't be so conceited!"

 Albert: "Stop it! It won't lead us anywhere. Rose, nobody can understand the
         weight of fate you have carried. But we can at least lighten the
         burden for you."

 Dart: "That's why.... We are going with you. If you have the strength to
       argue, we can go on. There is no other way, is there?"

[At the teleporter into the city...]

 Rose: "Even if an adventurer is lucky enough to make it through the Death
       Frontier, nobody can proceed from here. Time was stopped for me 11,000
       years ago with the spell of this Choker. And, this is the only way to
       see Ulara, the Spring Breath Town."

 Albert: "But, where is it?"

 Haschel: "The only thing here is an endless desert."

 Meru: "No, it's not. Haschel, I sense it. I sense people's feelings, over
       there!"

[Rose's Choker dispels the illusion.]

 Rose: "We can fly over there with this. Are you afraid?"

 Dart: "I think you are."

 Rose: "Maybe."

 Dart: "We are standing by you."

 Rose: "I know."

 Dart: "Let's go."

[They teleport in.]

 Caron: "Welcome to Ulara, the Spring Breath Town. I am the guard of the
        teleporting device, Caron. I'm a good friend of Rose's."

 Rose: "Long time no see."

 Caron: "'Long time'? Rose, you are starting to regain a sense of time, aren't
        you? No, not only that. You have recovered a lot of other things too."

 Dart: "Are you the person who stopped time for Rose?"

 Rose: "No, it was Charle Frahma. She is the person we have to meet now."

 Caron: "Rose has been carrying the fate of the world all alone while shedding
        tears of blood. Can you go with Rose?"

 Rose: "Caron, stop it. I don't need to force them."

 Dart: "I have already settled things with the Black Monster. The only thing
       left is that I have to complete this journey with my companions."

 Caron: "If you understand that, I have nothing to say.

[In the fountain square...]

 Rose: "Miata, where is Charle?"

 Miata: "You are wondering because she would normally be taking care of these
        babies, right? Charle is preparing herself. Because, well, the things
        we didn't tell you about, right? Zieg told you them, so...."

 Rose: "It must be about the Moon Signet. Tell me what you know."

 Miata: "The Signet is the...Signet Sphere. The Signet Sphere is a sealing
        device that was created to be the last barrier, just in case the Moon
        Child reached the Moon That Never Sets."

 Rose: "Even my mistake was in your plan. You are really scary people."

 Miata: "Even more scary is Zieg. He is trying to destroy the Signet Sphere.
        Using the Divine Moon Objects."

 Dart: "Wait a minute. You made the Signet Sphere just because you were afraid
       of the birth of the God of Destruction. And why did you make tools that
       can destroy the Signet?"

 Miata: "Ask Charle. It was decided between the siblings."

 Rose: "I will."

[In another verdant square...]

 Dart: "Roses. I think Shana would be happy to see them."

 Haschel: "It makes me relieved. I didn't know you liked flowers, Miranda. I
          guess there is some woman in you."

 Miranda: "Don't misread me. Roses make me puke. They are just flashy. They
          don't have any kindness in them. Do you know why roses have thorns?
          It is to bring out their own red using the blood of the people they
          hurt. They'll do anything for their own happiness. Let's move on. I
          don't need to be here."

[At Charle Frahma's place...]

 Charle: "Oh Rosie darling! I have been waiting for you!"

 Rose: "I don't need your greetings. You know what I want to ask you."

 Charle: "Oh, you are scary. But before that, can you introduce me to the son
         of dear Zieggy?"

 Rose: "This is Dart."

 Charle: "Doesn't he look just like our Zieggy? But Rosie honey, it's 
         complicated. You have to fight with the son of someone who used to be
         your significant other. And furthermore, the enemy is the significant
         other."

 Rose: "Do you want me to give you a knuckle sandwich?"

 Charle: "Sorry honey. But I'm really concerned. So I'm intentionally making
         it happy and delightful so that you won't be depressed, Rosie
         sweetheart."

 Rose: "You have never changed."

 Dart: "Charle. If you know, please tell us. Where should we head to?"

 Charle: "Really, you have the same eyes as Zieggy.... I know. I have been
         waiting for you in order to tell you everything. Now, what would you
         like me to tell you?"
         R1 -> About the Signet Sphere.
         R2 -> About the Moon That Never Sets.
         R3 -> About my father.

         R1: "About the Signet Sphere."

             Charle: "Zieggy is trying to break the Signet of the Moon That
                     Never Sets with the magic power of the Divine Moon
                     Objects. That Signet is the Signet Sphere. I am sorry
                     that I didn't tell you about this."

             Rose: "I have to apologize. I missed the Moon Child, Shana."

             Charle: "But you still have time. The Signet of the Moon That
                     Never Sets is not broken yet."

             Dart: "Where are the remaining Signets?"

             Charle: "In the past, they were placed in five cities. But there
                     are only three left."

             Albert: "That's why they needed the same number of Divine Moon
                     Objects."

             Dart: "What happened to the other two?"


             Charle: "One was destroyed in the Royal Capital Kadessa during the
                     Dragon Campaign. And the other was lost when the Divine
                     Dragon assaulted the Crystal Palace."

             Rose: "Does this mean, without the Divine Moon Objects, the Signet
                   Sphere can be destroyed?"

             Charle: "The Divine Moon Objects are just tools that conceal vast
                     amounts of magic power, that's all. So in order to destroy
                     the Signet Sphere, having the same amount of magic power
                     as the Divine Moon Objects is sufficient."

             Dart: "My dad knew about this and made Lloyd collect them."

             Charle: "It doesn't seem like him, and it's so indirect. Plus,
                     something is strange. I wonder how Zieggy knows about the
                     Signet Sphere?"

             Rose: "Not only that. He knew that Shana is the Moon Child."

         R2: "About the Moon That Never Sets."

             Charle: "It's the 108th fruit that the Divine Tree dropped. It was
                     conceived with the God of Destruction that ends the world.
                     That's why we separated it into its soul and flesh and
                     sealed them away. My baby brother Melbu sealed the soul
                     which was the source of magic power in the Crystal Sphere,
                     but um...when he fought with Zieggy, it ws broken. Then
                     the soul escaped from the Crystal Sphere and started to
                     transmigrate into a human body. Since then it has been
                     called the Moon Child. What is left in the sky is the Moon
                     That Never Sets. When the Moon Child goes back to the Moon
                     That Never Sets, the Virage Embryo, the God of Destruction
                     will be born. So, we needed our Rosie to take on an
                     important task. Please understand her...."

         R3: "Tell me about my father."

             Charle: "You are concerned, aren't you?"

             Dart: "Why does he have to destroy the world?"

             Charle: "Sorry, but that is the one thing that I don't understand."

             Rose: "But he was unmistakably Zieg."

             Charle: "Zieggy was the fiance of Rosie. They crossed both swords
                     and love. Just looking at them made me feel embarrassed."

             Rose: "Stop right there. I want to talk alone with Zieg about our
                   memories."

             Dart: "I agree."

 Dart: "Why did you make the Divine Moon Objects that can break the Signet
       Sphere?"

 Rose: "That's right. If you were not planning to allow the Virage Embryo to be
       born, you wouldn't need them."

 Charle: "I didn't want to, but my baby brother Melbu insisted."

 Rose: "That is not an explanation, Charle."

 Charle: "Oh, you are so uptight. But, okay, I'll explain it to you. I told you
         that we sealed the soul of the Virage Embryo in the Crystal Sphere,
         right? It is in order to draw lots of magical power and rule over
         other species. I...wanted to make him stop being a dictator. Because
         even though we have different appearances or capabilities, we are the
         same. We should be able to live together on good terms. That's why I
         created the Signet Sphere in order to weaken the magic power of the
         Crystal Sphere. Rose, without telling you that. The five Signets that
         protect the Moon That Never Sets restrained the magic power that flows
         from there. My operation was a big success! I thought."

 Rose: "But Melbu found out about it and created the Divine Moon Objects."

 Charle: "I guess he was prepared so that he could destroy the Signets anytime
         he wanted to."

 Rose: "Hmm. I get it."

 Dart: "Where are the rest of the Signets?"

 Charle: "That's right. That is the most important information for you isn't
         it? Because Zieggy has the Divine Moon Objects and he can break the
         Signets anytime. Listen carefully. The rest of the three Signet
         Spheres are located in the ancient cities. The names of the cities are
         the Magical City Aglis, Law City Zenebatos, and Death City Mayfil."

 Rose: "Those cities are still alive?"

 Charle: "It's surprising isn't it? Of course they were badly damaged during
         the war."

 Dart: "How do we get there?"

 Charle: "Go to Rouge. Then your way will be open."

 Haschel: "You said Rouge!? It's my home town!"

 Charle: "See, it is already open, isn't it? Well. It'll be night soon. Why
         don't you go look around until tomorrow morning."

[Everyone disperses.]

 Charle: "Oh Dart darling. Are you going outside? Everybody left a little while
         ago.

[Dart walks outside to the flower square.]

 Dart: [Now our way is opened. Shana, I'll be there soon.] "Rose...."

 Rose: "You really forgive...."

 Dart: "Don't say anything. It's, already in the past."

[Flashback: Death Frontier. Rose and Dart are fighting.]

 Dart: "Take your sword."

 Rose: "You have become strong. You can take care of yourself. Kill me."

[Dart does not.]

 Rose: "Why?"

 Dart: "The Black Monster is dead now. We only have.... A companion who is on
       the same road."

[Back to Ulara, Dart and Rose sit next to each other by the fountain.]

 Rose: "I miss the time when you were chased by Feybrand in the forest."

 Dart: "Me too. And...I didn't know anything back then. The world is so frail."

 Rose: "The world is created so that it can perish at any time. The creator Soa
       can recreate one anytime. But, the people living there can accept it,
       believing it is 'fate' or struggle against it. I struggled in order to
       protect this world that was taken back by friends who gave up their
       lives."

 Dart: "I told you. You are no longer alone, Rose."

 Rose: "Dart...."

 Dart: "Let's go see everybody. This is just the beginning."

[Dart teleports to the inn.]

 Miranda: "It's not true. The reason why I hate roses is because I see my
          mother in roses. My mother never looked at me directly. It was as if
          she was hiding something from me. And she beat me up. I didn't know
          what was going on and why she was doing it to me, but I remember at
          least one thing. There were always roses on the shelf behind my
          mother."

 Haschel: "Why did your mother leave you?"

 Miranda: "Sorry. Let's not talk about me anymore. It spoils our drinks."

 Haschel: "I don't think so. It is okay to be this way. Life is not always
          happy. Listening to your story reminds me of my past."

 Miranda: "About your runaway daughter right."

 Haschel: "You are so sharp that it hurts."

 Miranda: "I hate being roundabout."

 Dart: "Oh, you guys are here."

 Miranda: "When are we leaving? Haschel has been drinking too much since he
          heard we are going to Rouge."

 Haschel: "That's right! Drink a little more, and let's leave for Rouge at
          once! Of course to save the world!"

 Dart: "Gimme a drink too."

 Rose: "May I join? I wanted to talk to you Miranda."

 Miranda: "Same here."

[After some hanging out--]

 Dart: "Shall we go?"

[At the shop building...]

 Albert: "So, we are leaving in the morning."

 Dart: "Yes, we are. What are you doing here?"

 Kongol: "We don't know what will happen in ancient city of Winglies. We need
         strong weapon. Kongol doesn't care about leader of creatures. Kongol
         goes with you to the end."

 Albert: "For me too, it is no longer the mere problem of the Moon Gem. I
         cannot ignore this crisis of the world. You didn't imagine we wouldn't
         go with you, did you?"

 Dart: "I didn't."

 Manager of Weapon Shop: "Hurry up if you want to buy. Humans and Giganto, your
                         time is limited."

[At the town entrance...]

 Meru: "Hey! Buddies! Caron was telling me about the teleporting device. It's
       not like back home. And, when are we going? We already heard lots about
       it from Charle, and we found out where we should go."

 Rose: "You are coming too?"

 Meru: "Of course! Without me, the strongest of all, you cannot save the world!
       Besides, I learn a lot following Dart. Everybody's the same, Gigantos,
       Humans and Winglies. And I can't stand the destruction of a world where
       everybody lives!"

 Rose: "I think for the first time, I agree with Meru."

 Meru: "Is this the first time?"

 Caron: "Leave here tomorrow morning. By that time, I'll be prepared so that I
        can send you on the way that goes to the Home of Gigantos from here."

 Dart: "We can travel that far instantly. Then we might as well go directly to
       Rouge."

 Caron: "Our power is becoming weaker day by day. That is our maximum power."

 Dart: "I understand."

 Caron: "Take a boat to Rouge. It should have been prepared in the Twin Castle
        a short while ago."

 Dart: "Was there a dock in that castle?"

 Caron: "I asked King Zior and had him make one especially."

 Rose: "I'm surprised that he listened to a Wingly."

 Caron: "There are no Humans or Winglies when it comes to the end of the world.
        You don't need to thank us. Now, it is not too much to say that the
        mission of the city is to send you off."

 Rose: "Yes. And this is one way, this city has been looking after the world.
       Let's go back to Charle. She must have prepared the bedrooms for us."

[The next morning, at the entrance...]

 Dart: "Charle, what is this?"

 Charle: "Oh naive boy. Don't you understand? It's a send-off for great heroes.

 Rose: "You shouldn't have."

 Miata: "Don't be so shy."

 Charle: "Rosie, honey. You have been doing really great. Since the soul of the
         Virage Embryo, the God of Destruction was released, you have saved the
         world, let me see, at least 107 times."

 Miata: "Really. After even being called a Black Monster."

 Rose: "Stop it. The monster has...died."

 Charle: "Zieggy is serious. And, he has everything to give birth to the God of
         Destruction. Only Dragoons can stop him. I wonder what Creator Soa is
         thinking. Like destruction or regeneration. I wonder why it wants us
         to go through such a painful thingy."

 Rose: "We will change 'fate'."

 Charle: "Everybody must survive, okay?"

 Caron: "Now go. Zieg won't wait for us."

 Dart: "Right."

[Everyone goes to Home of Giganto.]

 Kongol: "Home of Gigantos."

 Dart: "It was linked here."

 Haschel: "It's been a while."

 Meru: "Caron and Gigantos were pals for a long time. Of course, it was when
       there were still some Gigantos left. There were nice Winglies like
       Charle."

 Miranda: "They weren't all brutal people, unlike the legend tells. We have to
          rewrite teh book in the National Library."

 Albert: "Yes, correct knowledge brings correct conduct."

 Dart: "That's after this journey has ended. Let's go see King Zior. We have
       to head to Rouge on the Queen Fury."

[Everyone boot-scoots to Fletz; the court's waiting for them.]

 King Zior: "Dart. I have been waiting for you."

 Dart: "What is this...?"

 King Zior: "We are seeing you off."

 Emille: "We received a messenger from Charle."

 Lisa: "Her name was Caron."

 King Zior: "Everything is ready for going to Rouge. The world must not be
            destroyed. Even if it was the intention of the creator, we are
            all still alive and living. I beg of you. Please save the world.
            Commodore Puler is waiting for you in the basement. To carry our
            hope."

 Dart: "So long."

[Downstairs...]

 Puler: "Oh, you are here!! Everybody looks confident. Although you are going
        to an unknown land, there is no hesitation or wavering."

 Haschel: "Actually, it's my home village..."

 Puler: "A man of the sea isn't bothered by those little details! Anyway! We
        are ready to go! We absolutely have to stop the crazy conspiracy to
        annihilate the world! However, we should never give up rescuing our
        loved ones either! Let us be going, Dart! The ocean awaits you!"

 Kayla: "The Commodore makes it sound simple, but I assume that this time it
        will be a long journey, won't it?"

 Dart: "Yes."

 Kayla: "Then, I think you'd better get what you need from the city and come
        back."

 Dart: "Thank you."

 Kayla: "It's okay. I am happy to help you, Dart. Besides.... Please...! Please
        rescue Shana!"

 Albert: "We give you our promise."

 Haschel: "Of course we will!"

 Kayla: "I'll be waiting for you on the boat!

 Dart: "Let's go."

[Everyone boards the Queen Fury.]

 Kid: "Wow!"

 Kid: "Sail ho!"

[Dart's tiny boat makes it to shore.]

 Haschel: "It's been a long time. I wonder if anyone remembers me?"

 Man: "Ha...Haschel!?'

 Haschel: "Yeah! It's me!"

 Mayor of Rouge: "Well, it's been, maybe 20 years!? You've been gone for such
                 a long time!! How have you been!?"

 Haschel: "I was looking for my runaway daughter, but I gave up on it."

 Mayor of Rouge: "Claire huh? That's...I feel sorry to hear that. And who are
                 all these people? Are they your new pupils?"

 Haschel: "No, they are my friends. I'd like for you to get to know them. But
          we don't have time now. I have something important to talk to you
          about."

 Mayor of Rouge: "All right. Come up. I'll listen to you. Come on, get over!
                 The floor's gonna give way!

[The party goes up to the mayor's pad.]

 Haschel: "Hasn't changed a bit, huh?"

 Mayor of Rouge: "No kidding. This village is forgotten. We rarely have
                 visitors from the continent."

 Fisherman of Rouge: "All we do is fish and sleep, fish and sleep."

 Martial Art Master of Rouge: "Practice and sleep and practice and sleep."

 Mayor of Rouge: "That's about it. Nothing has changed since Haschel left the
                 village. Say, what's cooking? You came all the way here, must
                 be something important, huh?"

 Haschel: "Yup. To be honest, we are looking for the way to the ancient cities.

 Mayor of Rouge: "'Ancient cities'? What the heck are they?"

 Rose: "Those were towns where the long gone Winglies lived."

 Dart: "Do you know anything about them?"

 Mayor of Rouge: "Winglies!? What on earth are they!? You lost me!"

 Haschel: "You couldn't know. Let me explain."

[Haschel explains it all!]

 Mayor of Rouge: "A world crisis!? That's a pretty awful thing then!!"

 Haschel: "That's why we are in a hurry."

 Dart: "Are there any old ruins around here?"

 Rose: "Things that Humans couldn't make."

 Fisherman of Rouge: "How about this. There is a stick rising out of the sea.
                     Could it be related?"

 Martial Art Master of Rouge: "Oh! That thing in the sea! Indeed! Humans
                              couldn't have made it!"

 Dart: "Where is that?"

 Mayor of Rouge: "It's in the middle of the sea. But you can't get close by
                 boat, cuz there's an awful whirlpool. But, you can see it
                 clearly from the cliff top. Well, it suddenly came up, so
                 you wouldn't have known about it."

 Haschel: "Shall we try?"

 Mayor of Rouge: "Hope it's the one you folks wanna go to."

[Up on the clifftop, a huge mushroom-shaped thing sits in the sea.]

 Dart: "That must be what the Mayor was talking about."

 Haschel: "There was no 'stick' 20 years ago when I was here."

 Meru: "It's huge and more like a tower than a stick."

 Albert: "This structure could never be made by Human technology."
 
 Miranda: "Rose, do you know anything about it? You were there once weren't
          you?"

 Dart: "That's right, Rose is one of the Dragoons who liberated Humans. Don't
       you remember anything?"

 Rose: "Charle said the Signet Spheres remain in the Magic City Aglis, the
       Death City Mayfil, and the Law City Zenebatos. If I remember correctly
       ...there was only the Magical City Aglis in this region of the sea.
       Charle must have made us come here because she thinks Zieg will go after
       the Signet Sphere of Aglis first."

 Meru: "Rose, a question please! What the heck is the 'Law City' or whatever
       they call it? What do they mean?"

 Albert: "I was thinking about that too. The Crystal Palace was called the
         'Birth City' too."

 Rose: "The Birth City Crystal Palace was a city where babies were selected to
       be born."

 Dart: "'Select' babies?"

 Rose: "Those with weak magical power weren't allowed to be born."

 Meru: "That's awful."

 Rose: "And the Death City Mayfil is wehre the souls of the dead were sent to
       an infernal world."

 Miranda: "Winglies in the past had even their destination after death decided
          for them."

 Rose: "Do you want to know anything else?"
       R1 -> The Forbidden Land
       R2 -> Birth City Crystal Palace
       R3 -> Death City Mayfil
       R4 -> Law City Zenebatos
       R5 -> Magical City Aglis
       R6 -> Quit

       R1: "It was the capital of the Wingly world dominated by Melbu Frahma."
           It was the center of politics and the military."

           Albert: "That's why it was so damaged."

           Meru: "That's the reason why it is the Forbidden Land now."

       R2: "I already told you. You are hopeless. The Birth City Crystal Palace
           was the city where babies were selected to be born. Those with weak
           magic power weren't allowed to be born."

       R3: "Don't make me say it again. Didn't you listen to me? The Death City
           Mayfil was the city where the souls of the dead were sent to an
           infernal world. Winglies wanted to control even the destination of
           the soul after death."

       R4: "The Law City Zenebatos was the city where Wingly laws were made.
           Publicly, they claimed it was for justice, but in reality they were
           laws to judge 'other species.' Also trials and executions were
           carried out in Zenebatos."

           Miranda: "I can easily imagine what kind of trials they were. Gives
                    me the creeps."

       R5: "The Magical City Aglis was the city where magic was studied."

           Albert: "It is astonishing that even though they had much more magic
                   than now, they still studied it so deeply?"

           Meru: "It would never happen now."

           Haschel: "You are carefree, Meru."

       R6: [See below.]

 Haschel: "You really know this stuff."

 Dart: "If it is Aglis how can we approach it?"

 Rose: "We gotta hurry or Zieg will get there first."

 Dart: "Well, we cannot go by boat. We gotta find some other way."

[At the Mirror Room in Aglis the Magical City, someone watches the party...]

 Dart: "What's wrong, Rose?"

 Rose: "We were being watched by somebody."

 Dart: "'Being watched'?"

 Rose: "!!"
 Haschel: "!!"

[The ground starts to shake.]

 Haschel: "What's going on!?"

 Mayor of Rouge: "Th, the sea is splitting!"

 Dart: "Let's go!"

[Back at the clifftop, the sea has indeed split towards Aglis, which has now
increased in size.]

 Dart: "What is that!?"

 Rose: "The Magical City Aglis revealed itself."

 Mayor of Rouge: "Haschel!! Is that what you were looking for!?"

 Haschel: "It seems like it! Thank god that it found us!"

 Miranda: "Now, we can go in before Zieg!"

 Dart: "Let's go!"

[They return to the boat dock.]

 Boat Pop: "No kidding! Ya folks are gonna put to sea, aren't ya!?"
           R1 -> ...
           R2 -> We are going to go.

           R1: "..."
           R2: "We are going to go."

               Boat Pop: "Don't ya know there's going on!? The sea's split and
                         weird stuff appeared!"

 Dart: "That's why we are here."

 Boat Pop: "Ya folks are insane!!"

 Dart: "Oh my god! There is a road formed on the bottom of the sea! It's true.
       If we take a boat, we can walk from midway..."
       R1 -> Return to Rouge
       R2 -> Go to the Queen Fury
       R3 -> Go to Aglis the Magical City

       R1: "We don't know what we will find. We have to be very prepared."
       R2: "Should we go back to the Queen Fury for now."
       R3: "There is no need to hesitate. Let's go into Aglis!"

[Everyone goes to Aglis.]

o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

[The party arrives in Aglis.]

 Dart: "What's going on here?"

 Meru: "Magic. Somebody's supportin' this with magic!"

 Albert: "It seems we are invited."

 Dart: "It's convenient for us."

 Miranda: "We have no reason to say no."

 Rose: "This door is not locked either. Dart, you go ahead and open it. Zieg
       will come here. To destroy the Signet Sphere. You will have to finally
       settle things. So I want you to open the first door."

[Inside...]

 Meru: "This is the bottom of the sea!"

 Haschel: "What a great view. It's worth waiting a long...."

 Miranda: "Don't forget we are invited by somebody. Otherwise this will be the
          last view we see."

 Albert: "But, it's incredible magic, creating this much space in the water."

 Rose: "This city originally was not in such a suffocating place. All the
       Wingly cities used to float in the air. So it was easier to control the
       creatures below. And, that's how it was until we shot them down."

 Dart: "With my dad."

 Rose: "Yes, Zieg and me, and five other Dragoons together."

 Dart: "11,000 years passed since then and now we are here. Being here to
       protect the Signet Sphere. It feels strange to me."

[The room shakes.]

 Dart: "What's going on!?"

 Kongol: "Sea closed."

 Dart: "What!? They don't want us to go back!"

 Rose: "They are playing hardball with us."

[In the next screen, a little dog-thing is walking around.]

 Dart: "What's this?"

 Ruff: "Ruff has been in here forever, ruff. I only know the view and sound in
       here, ruff."

 Miranda: "It doesn't seem to be harmful."

 Ruff: "It's rough, ruff. Ruff doesn't want to say anything, but it's a message
       so that it's rough, ruff. 'Welcome to the seven heroes fated to be here.
       And Rose, these thousands of years I have waited were neither as long as
       eternity nor as short as a mere twinkle of a star. People who confront
       their fate with courage....' I forgot the rest."

 Rose: "How do you know my name?"

 Dart: "Whose message is this?"

 Ruff: "Ruff only knows what Ruff hears, ruff. Ruff doesn't know anything else,
       ruff."

 Miranda: "Are you on Zieg's side? Answer me, or I'm gonna mess you up!"

 Ruff: "'Mess you up'? Ruff has never seen it and doesn't know, ruff. Show it
       to Ruff. It should be some rough stuff, ruff."

 Meru: "Hey, Miranda! This baby didn't do anything! Sorry we scared you. Oh.
       This baby's made by magic!"

 Rose: "By 'magic'? There wasn't even such technology during the Dragon
       Campaign."

 Meru: "You gotta believe this cuz it's right in front of our eyes. But, this
       baby's totally cute!"

 Ruff: "Ruff is cute? Then you all are not cute, ruff. But, Rose is exception,
       ruff."

 Rose: "If you are gonna treat me as an exception, why don't you take me to the
       Signet Sphere?"

 Ruff: "It's your own challenge to go by yourself, ruff. All is for the sake of
       the Psychedelic Bomb and Moot, ruff. Ruff is going, ruff. It's rough,
       ruff."

[Ruff leaves.]

 Dart: "Well.... We gotta go anyway."

[Everyone finds a lab area eventually where Ruff lookalike is.]

 Phewy: "Sorry, phew. We are busy preparing the Psychedelic Bomb and Moot,
        phew. Sorry, phew."

 Ruff: "It's all in the message by Ruff. Disturbing our work is too rough,
       ruff."

 Rose: "It's been a while since I last came here. Don't you think you should be
       nice to me and tell me more?"

 Ruff: "Ruff has nothing to tell you, ruff. Ruff has something else to do,
       ruff."

 Phewy: "Sorry, phew. We are magic creatures, phew. We have different roles,
        phew."

 Dart: "What are you doing here?"

 Phewy: "Preparing the Psychedelic Bomb and Moot, phew. You can complete it,
        Phew. You can become the source of power, phew. Sorry, phew. He is
        coming, phew. I have to make it in time, phew. Remember your courage,
        phew."

 Dart: "'He'!?"

 Rose: "Let's go. They irritate me.

[A ways further in...]

 Dart: "It's a magic creature again."

 Spino: "Don't be mean, pino. It's just a message, pino."

 Rose: "Gimme a break. Is everything like this in here?"

 Spino: "It's rose, pino. You are in the mirror, Rose, pino. It's Rose who got
        friends and is in the mirror, pino."

 Rose: "Stop speaking in riddles. If you have a message just say it."

 Spino: "Don't be mean, pino. Savan said, pino. 'Zenebatos, which governs the
        rightful law, has lot its reason, and Mayfil, which governs over noble
        death, has been toyed with by devils of the infernal world.' This city
        is no exception. My magic power is deteriorating and cannot prevent the
        invasion by monsters anymore. The only saving grace is my....this
        city's objective is about to be completed. You are the key. I have been
        waiting for you for thousands of years. Come, before he comes.'"

 Dart: "Savan. As if he knows everything."

 Rose: "We will find out."

[In a chamber in the depths of Aglis...]

 Savan: "The time has come. The foreseen evil is approaching. But my wish is
        now hereby accomplished after an eternity. I am Savan. I am a Wingly
        fated to wait. The Signet Sphere you are looking for is safe. It is
        protected by Last Kraken."

 Dart: "You know everything!?"

 Savan: "I know that there is no time left as well."

 Rose: "Who are you? What are you going to do...no, what are you going to make
       us do?"

 Savan: "I survived the Dragon Campaign and continued studying magic to
        reconstruct a Wingly world. Yes, even making myself ageless and
        immortal. However, the world outside the mirror hasn't required me.
        The world of Winglies is no longer desired. I, an immortal body with
        no purpose. 4000 years of solitude deprived me of everything. Even the
        significance of life and the meaning of death. But 7000 years ago, I
        was saved by Rose. I found the meaning of life in the Black Monster in
        the mirror. Rose, who now is confronting her fate. I restarted my study
        for Rose. And its crystallization is this Psychedelic Bomb and Moot. We
        will stop the murderous deeds of Zieg, who continues the plan of the
        creator, by using the attacking spell, the Psychedelic Bomb. And with
        Moot, we will completely seal the Moon That Never Sets."

 Rose: "That is the answer to the riddle. No wonder it takes several thousand
       years."

 Savan: "Moot will be completed soon. But, in order to activate the Psychedelic
        Bomb, I need the Courage of all of you."

 Dart: "Our 'courage'?"

 Savan: "It seems that my courage alone is not enough. THe Psychedelic Bomb
        didn't work. I guess I don't have any courage."

 Meru: "That's not true! You have courage, Savan!"

 Haschel: "Yes, you have been fighting alone for thousands of years."

 Miranda: "But now, we are here with you."

 Albert: "Yes. Our intention is the same."

 Savan: "You have to endure your own challenge. And we will pour the 'courage'
        that is born from them into the Psychedelic Bomb and activate it. When
        you are ready, come to me. Are you ready?"
        R1 -> No, not yet.
        R2 -> Yes, we are.

        R1: "No, not yet."

            Savan: "We don't have time. That man would do anything to destroy
                   the Signet Sphere."

        R2: "Yes, we are."

 Lulu: "Let me tell ya! Lots of the world's magic was created here!"

 Savan: "But, the newborn magic is a mere hunk of materials. Without heart, the
        real power cannot be employed. But we have here brave people who can
        remain just, and have the heart to bring completion to the ultimate
        magic. Please ignite the Psychedelic Bomb with your courage. Now,
        proceed to the chamber of challenges!

[Everyone goes to a teleporter and leaves, but Dart.]

 Savan: "You are the last. Please be here with me till then."

 Lulu: "At last, we're speaking."

 Savan: "No, this will be the end of my role. My fate of waiting as well. Shall
        we start the first challenge?"
        R1 -> Hold on.
        R2 -> Okay.

        R1: "Hold on."

            Lulu: "Hurry up or Zieg will come. Then in order to protect the
                  Signet Sphere, Last Kraken and Zieg have to fight."

        R2: "Okay."

[The first challenge is for Kongol. Rose appears behind him.]

 Rose: "It seems like it's just us. Why don't we fight for starters? Are you
       scared just because you lost many times? Or is the cheap pride of a
       Giganto stopping you?"

 Kongol: "Kongol and Rose changed. Rose doesn't say such things. You are not
         Rose."

 Rose: "Then die."

[She disappears and Doel appears.]

 Emperor Doel: "Don't tell me you are buddying up with your enemy.""

 Kongol: "!!"

 Emperor Doel: "You fool! What happened to my plan, the unification o
               Endiness!? Have you found the leader who replaced me!?"
               R1 -> Swing your axe.
               R2 -> Take Doel's sword.

               R1: [He swings the axe and Doel disappears. Elsewhere...]

                   Lulu: "He avoided it."

                   Savan: "Don't be hard on him. Avoiding the past itself is
                          hard enough."

               R2: [Kongol knocks his sword away.]

                   Kongol: "Emperor Doel, Kongol got new feeling. Kongol found
                           new friends. Intention of Emperor Doel is in Kongol.
                           Kongol won't avoid Emperor Doel."

                   [Elsewhere...]

                   Lulu: "We saw the courage of a Giganto."

                   Savan: "Real courage can be obtained when a person is
                          released from the bonds of the past."

[The second challenge is for Miranda. Buckle's there too.]

 Miranda: "I see. You are giving me a challenge. Let's get it over with."

 Buckle: "Don't be so hasty uck. Miranda, you are hasty, have a short temper
         and are hopelessly annoying, uck. You really have a short temper, uck.
         I have a question for annoying Miranda, uck. 'Why are you here?'"
         R1 -> For my friends
         R2 -> For the world
         R3 -> For Queen Theresa

         R1: "To help my friends."
         R2: "For the world..."
         R3: "For Queen Theresa...."

 Buckle: "I asked the wrong question, all were right, uck. Buckle lost, uck.
         Miranda won, uck. I lost so that Buckle die, uck."

 Miranda: "What are you talking about?"

 Buckle: "Without Buckle, this space cannot exist. You die too, Miranda."

 Miranda: "Where am I? Buckle! Answer me!"

 Buckle: "You still don't understand uck? Buckle and Miranda died uck."

 Miranda: "Don't tell me I died!! I am still alive! Look! I still have my hands
          and feet!"

 Buckle: "To die is to vanish, uck. Now, Miranda vanishes, uck. Same as Buckle,
         uck."

 Miranda: "Wh, what kind of trick is this!? What did you do with my body!?"

 Buckle: "Miranda has done enough uck. So that you vanish with Buckle, uck. Are
         you scared uck? Afraid uck? Wanna cry uck?"
         R1 -> I am ready for death anytime!
         R2 -> I cannot die now.

         R1: "I am ready for death anytime! I don't fear death!"

             Buckle: "You are still annoying uck. Zieg is going to destroy the
                     Signet Sphere. Is it okay to die uck?"

             [Elsewhere...]

             Lulu: "Miranda shouldn't die now."

             Savan: "Only those who accomplish the mission are ready for death.
                    It's too early for her."

         R2: "I cannot die now. I haven't done anything yet! I cannot die if
             terror remains in the world!"

             Buckle: "Miranda is revived uck. Buckle is revived too uck."

             [Elsewhere...]

             Lulu: "Buckle's mean."

             Savan: "The person who knows the time of their own death has real
                    courage. Hmm. That means, I too have...."

[The third challenge is for Albert.]

 Minister Noish: "Your Majesty Albert! It's an emergency!"

 Albert: "Minister Noish, why are you here?"

 Minister Noish: "I was called by Mr. Savan! Serdio is in danger!"

 Albert: "Tell me more."

 Minister Noish: "The mysterious eastern tribe is deploying an army around the
                 border. In cowardice they took advantage of your absence,
                 King! Return to Indels Castle at once. Your people are waiting
                 for you to come back, Your Majesty."
                 R1 -> I understand.
                 R2 -> I...cannot do that.

                 R1: "I understand. I will return as soon as possible."

                     Lulu: "What about Dart and friends?"

                     [Elsewhere...]

                     Lulu: "Being a king is a hard job."

                     Savan: "Albert is a king who has to protect the people of
                            Serdio. But Albert now is one of the Dragoons who
                            save the world in crisis as well."

                     Lulu: "That's the difficult point."

                     Savan: "The real leader has to be able to weigh the
                            effects of a death. That is the courage of a King."

                 R2: "I...cannot do that."

                     Minister Noish: "Wh, Why!?"

                     Albert: "I am a Dragoon, before I am a King. Minister
                             Noish, please attend to the matter of the invasion
                             by the eastern tribe. Do everything possible to
                             avoid a fight."

                     Lulu: "That's right. Don't worry, there is no such thing
                           as an eastern tribe."

                     [Elsewhere...]

                     Lulu: "That's our King."

                     Savan: "Albert had to weigh the world's crisis against his
                            people's. But making cruel choices is the
                            responsibility of a king. The real leader has to be
                            able to weigh the effects of a death. That is the
                            courage of a king."

[The fourth challenge is with Meru.]

 Meru: "Nothing is here. Boring."

[Bardel appears.]

 Meru: "Bardel!? Why are you here!?"

 Younger Bardel: "I came back from the infernal world to get revenge for my
                 sister!"

[Guaraha stops him.]

 Younger Bardel: "Are you interrupting me Guaraha!?"

 Meru: "Guaraha?"

 Guaraha: "You told me, Meru. You would come back to settle the matter of his
          sister after the journey. So, you cannot die here."

 Younger Bardel: "Make amends with your death!! My sister admired you! How can
                 you still live after taking the life of my sister!?"
                 R1 -> I...
                 R2 -> I still cannot die!

                 R1: "I...."

                     Lulu: "You cannot make amends when you die."

                     [Elsewhere...]

                     Lulu: "Poor Meru."

                     Savan: "But this is her challenge. Death does not make
                            amends. 'Making amends' only exists in life. And
                            it requires courage."

                 R2: "I still cannot die! I cannot do anything if I die! Even
                     make amends!"

                     Lulu: "It was tough, wasn't it."

                     [Elsewhere...]

                     Lulu: "Poor Meru."

                     Savan: "Death does not make amends. 'Making amends' only
                            exists in life. We surely saw the courage of Meru
                            who knew and chose to live."

[The fifth challenge is with Haschel.]

 Haschel: "The completion of magic requires both the material and heart of the
          person who uses it. It is like raising disciples...."

[Haschel remembers running off his daughter.]

 Haschel: "What is this?"

 Lulu: "And Claire left Rouge. I saw it through the mirror with Spino. If you
       could erase all your memories and could go back to that moment, could
       you stop Claire?"
       R1 -> I could stop her.
       R2 -> I couldn't stop her.

       R1: "I could stop her."

           Lulu: "But, it would be the same. Because the Haschel 'then' is the
                 'then.'

           [Elsewhere...]

           Savan: "You cannot change your past. Accepting the past...it shows
                  courage, too."

       R2: "I couldn't stop her. It was the best I could do."

           Lulu: "That's right."

           [Elsewhere...]

           Savan: "Accepting the past...it shows courage, too."

[The sixth challenge is for Rose.]

 Savan: "I would often think about it. The thing we are doing, namely Charle
        creating the Signet Sphere to seal the Moon That Never Sets, and Rose
        continuously killing the Moon Child. I prepared for the coming evil
        day with a new signet, Moot, and the Psychedelic Bomb. And waited
        until the moment. The road to destruction laid by the creator Soa was
        supposed to be absolute. But evolution was stopped by us, Winglies. I
        would often think about it. Whether our deeds were theright thing. And
        will continue forever. I am afraid. Whether I will be myself until the
        day my body perishes and becomes dust. Will our intention be engulfed
        by the intention of the creator Soa eventually? Is everything
        meaningless?"

 Rose: "You go too far. We are neither immortal, nor gods. We are mere people.
       People should just live in the present. Because it means living for the
       'next' present. I have been that way. And I won't change. When is my
       challenge?"

[The sixth challenge ends.]

 TEXT GOES HERE.

[The seventh challenge is for Dart.]

 Dart: "Shana, is this an illusion?"

 Lulu: "It's the possibility of the future."

 Dart: "The sword!! I, I cannot control my body. What...did you do to me!?"

 Lulu: "You have to take up swords against Shana."

 Dart: "Stop it!!"

 Lulu: "Shana is the Moon Child that gives birth to the God of Destruction,
       as well as being Dart's significant other. If you have to take up swords
       against Shana, what are you gonna do?"
       R1 -> I will save Shana no matter what!
       R2 -> What should I do!?

       R1: "I will save Shana no matter what!"

           Lulu: "That's courage."

           [Elsewhere...]

           Savan: "The courage to pursue your love will change even fate."

       R2: "What should I do?"

           Lulu: "You don't have courage."

           [Elsewhere...]

           Savan: "Without courage to pursue your love, you cannot escape from
                  fate."

[After all challenges have been completed.]

 Miranda: "Savan went ahead to see the results."

 Meru: "I hope our courage will be able to make the Psychedelic Bomb."

 Haschel: "It's the creation from thousands of years of effort by Savan. We
          have a huge responsibility."

 Albert: "We obtained an unexpected ally. Now, we can wait for Zieg at the
         Signet Sphere. We all know what this means don't we?"

 Dart: "If we can stop my dad in this city, the world will be saved. That's it.
       Let's go. Savan's waiting."

[They go to Savan.]

 Savan: "Look! The courage of all of you is adding up! The new magic will be
        born! Give me your hands! Give me your hands to save the world!"

 Dart: "This is the Psychedelic Bomb?"

 #############################################################################
 [If you did all challenges correctly:]

 Savan: "Oh...my god!! It is exceeding the limit!!"

 Dart: "Did I fail!?"

 Savan: "Don't worry! It's not a bad thing! Your courage was too strong!!
 #############################################################################

 Savan: "My [ultimate] magic is now completed."

 Ruff: "Savan, at last I finished the preparation of Moot, ruff. It was rough,
       ruff."

 Phewy: "Our efforts will pay off, phew. Magic power as strong as the Signet
        Spheres is gathered in Moot, phew."

 Savan: "It seems we made it in time."

 Dart: "Does this mean we can stop my father's plan?"

 Ruff: "As long as Zieg doesn't destroy Moot, ruff."

 Phewy: "It's okay, phew. The strongest of all magic creatures, Last Kraken is
        guarding it phew."

 Savan: "Let's activate Moot at once. We will put a new seal on the Moon That
        Never Sets." [Acquired Psychedelic Bomb/Psychedelic Bomb X]

[They go to Moot's chamber.]

 Savan: "Let me show it. This is the Signet Sphere that has continued to seal
        the Moon That Never Sets, the flesh of the God of Destruction, the evil
        fruit that is settled in the sky.... And this is Last Kraken. A magic
        creature that was born to guard the Signet Sphere. But we have you. It
        may not be needed."

 Lulu: "And Moot will start working."

 Dart: "That red light is Moot, the new Signet."

 Savan: "Yes. When Moot is activated and the new Signet covers the Moon That
        Never Sets, the ambitions of that man will be terminated. What is going
        on!?"

[The room shakes.]

 Zieg: "That was a poor introduction of me."

 Rose: "The voice. It's you Zieg!"

 Dart: "Dad! Where are you!?"

 Zieg: "In front of you."

 Savan: "Don't tell me, it's been manipulated!? It cannot be!"

 Rose: "Yes it is. It is controlling the heart of Last Kraken! Zieg! Are you
       saying the 10,000 years of rest brought you magic power!?"

 Zieg: "Yes. Isn't it an astonishing evolution? Eventually, I will go beyond
       everything."

 Dart: "Father, tell me! Why do you need to annihilate the world!?"

 Zieg: "Because it is the intention of the Creator Soa. And now, it is my
       intention as well. Dart, are you not only pointing a sword against your
       own father, but also, pointing a sword against Soa, who created you? And
       Savan, don't you think it is a waste to stop the birth of a god by
       disobeying the intention of Soa? You are all silly. It seems the Moon
       Mirror that Lloyd struggled to get was not necessary. Go, Last Kraken!
       Destroy the Signet Sphere along with this city!!"

 Dart: "Everybody, we gotta stop him!! I won't let you have your way, father!!"

[They defeat Last Kraken.]

 Lulu: "Danger, Danger!!" <- This is repeated

 Savan: "The Signet Sphere is resonating with the runaway reaction of Moot."

 Dart: "Why!? We prevented the attack of Last Kraken!"

 Savan: "I got it. The field of power generated by the Dragoons triggered the
        runaway reaction. Sorry, I'll teleport you!"

[Savan teleports them out of the room.]

 Dart: "Savan!! You have to come too!"

 Savan: "I will see this til the end. You should hurry to the next city, the
        Signet Sphere of Aglis is now being destroyed."

 Dart: "Are you starting it alone? And ending it alone too!!"

 Savan: "Even if my body vanishes, my heart will remain. It will give you wings
        to fly the sky, to the Moon That Never Sets, where Zieg is heading."

 Rose: "I still have something to ask you!"

 Savan: "Rose, I am grateful. Rose, you...were...my...."

[An explosion takes place and Savan stops talking.]

 Rose: "We have no time for being sad."

[They backtrack to the room where Savan gave challenges...]

 Miranda: "Buckle. You are!?"

 Buckle: "Miranda, you are still annoying, uck. Are other people safe, uck?"

 Miranda: "Don't say anything."

 Buckle: "Savan died. Buckle and other creatures cannot live without Savan,
         uck."

 Miranda: "Can't we do something for you? Can't you be saved with the Dragoon's
          power!? Answer me!!"

 Buckle: "Be quiet, uck. Good night, uck."

 Miranda: "Are you playing dead again!? Give me a break!!"

 Buckle: "We can meet again soon, uck. Closing...my eyes...and soon, uck..."

[Buckle dies. In the first laboratory...]

 Decal: "Dart, Decal's time is stopping, cal. I cannot roll anymore, cal."

 Spino: "But, before that, you must...see, pino."

[Zieg is on the mirror Savan looked at previously.]

 Dart: "Dad, what are you doing!?"

 Rose: "The Moon Mirror is broken!?"

 Spino: "Because the Signet Sphere of Aglis was destroyed. He doesn't need it
        anymore, pino. Zieg is in the Law City Zenebatos, pino. Go hurry, pino.

 Dart: "But how can we go?"

 Decal: "We connected the teleport device, cal. Please keep rolling for Decal,
        cal."

[They both die.]

 Rose: "He's dead. He opened our road with his last power."

 Dart: "We won't waste your death."

[Everyone returns to the initial locked door.]

 Rose: "This must be the door to the teleport device Decal was talking about."

 Meru: "It looks like the one in my forest."

 Rose: "This can take us to Zenebatos instantly. It's completely different."

 Albert: "Winglies had such astonishing magic power, moving between cities 
         instantly like this."

 Haschel: "It's astonishing all right, but I cannot accept life being generated
          by magic."

 Miranda: "Me neither. It's too depressing to be born just to do one thing."

 Dart: "The Virage Embryo, the God of Destruction, was born for destruction
       only. Its existence might have the same sorrow."

 Rose: "Then let's try to make it feel better. By making sure it'll never be
       born. We gotta protect the next Signet Sphere."

 Dart: "Let's go to the Law City Zenebatos."

o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o
| Ch. 4 - 51 - Law City Zenebatos                                        LCZ1 |
o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

[Everyone arrives in the dismal city after teleporting in.]

 Dart: "So this is the Law City Zenebatos."

 Rose: "It is the city where the legislation and administration of the world of
       the ancient Winglies were carried out."

 Haschel: "It's an austere place. It seems like a place Albert would love."

 Albert: "Yes, I have a great interest in the way in which they managed their
         nations. However, I don't think I can learn anything from such a mess.

 Miranda: "It fell more than 10,000 years ago."

 Guard Lapto 11: "WARNING. WARNING. WARNING. WARNING. WARNING. WARNING.
                 ZENEBATOS IS UNDER MARTIAL LAW. LEAVE THE CITY AT ONCE."

 Rose: "Good for you Albert. It seems that Zenebatos is still alive."

 Guard Lapto 11: "WARNING. INVADED BY HUMANS. TAKE SHELTER IN KADESSA PROMPTLY.
                 WARNING. WARNING. WARNING. WARNING."

[It leaves.]

 Albert: "However, unfortunately it doesn't seem to be functioning."

 Dart: "Are those generated by magic too?"

 Meru: "It seems like it. But it's different from Buckle. There is no heart in
       it."

 Rose: "It is just like Zieg now."

 Meru: "Hey guys! There is something coming this way!"

 Dart: "Wh, What's this?"

 Coolon: "I am Coolon. I'll be your wings."

 Rose: "Savan was talking about it in his last moments. 'Wings that can fly the
       skies will be given'. It was about you."

 Coolon: "Rose and people who are carrying the world. Although Savan couldn't
         accomplish his objectives, he fulfilled his role at the expense of his
         life. Now, everything is on you."

 Dart: "I know. I will stop my father. And fulfill Savan's will."

 Coolon: "I'll be here waiting for you. Whenever you would like to go back to
         the world, I'll be your wings."

[Down the way...]

 Guilde Lapto 04: "WARNING. UNDER MARTIAL LAW, VISITATION ALLOWED ONLY TO
                  LEGISLATION CENTER, LAW FACTORY, AND LAW LAUNCHER. GREAT
                  COURT, RESIDENCTIAL AREA, POWER ROOM ARE OFF-LIMITS."

 Dart: "Can't we go to the place where the Signet Sphere is?"

 GUILDE LAPTO 04: "IMPOSSIBLE. THE LAW PROHIBITS HUMANS FROM GOING TO THE
                  SIGNET SPHERE. IMPOSSIBLE THE LAW PROHIBITS HUMANS FROM GOING
                  TO THE SIGNET SPHERE."

 Albert: "It seems it is a waste of time to talk to them. Let's focus on how
         we can proceed."

 Dart: "Okay."

 Albert: "It seems we can decide the destination with this operation counter?"

 Guide Lapto 04: "DETERMINE THE DESTINATION."

[Through a long process, the party makes Signet Sphere law amended.]

 Guide Lapto 00: "THE LAW PROHIBITS HUMANS FROM GOING TO THE SIGNET SPHERE."

 Dart: "I know that. But it should be revised now."

 Guide Lapto 00: "NO REVISION HAS BEEN RECEIVED."

 Meru: "Hey you, can't you be more flexible? Maybe my spell is not that strong,
       but I'm here, why don't you let us go."

 Guide Lapto 00: "THE LAW PROHIBITS HUMANS FROM GOING TO THE SIGNET SPHERE."

 Haschel: "A world crisis is near at hand!!"

 Guide Lapto 00: "NO INTEREST IN 'World Crisis'. INTEREST ONLY IN COMPLIANCE
                 WITH THE LAW."

[A messenger arrives.]

 Guide Lapto 00: "WINGLY CODE ARTICLE 703 REVISED. ENFORCED IMMEDIATELY. THE
                 LAW DOES NOT PROHIBIT NON-WINGLIES FROM GOING TO THE SIGNET
                 SPHERE."

 Meru: "It says 'DOES NOT PROHIBIT'!"

 Albert: "It seems the produced law is launched, arrives and then is enforced."

 Miranda: "They are treating laws as if they are commodities."

 Rose: "That's all it was anyway. The law was a mere tool to judge other
       creatures for them...the Winglies."

 Dart: "We spent too much time with that tool. We gotta get to the Signet
       Sphere before my father."

[They take the hoverdisc to the Great Court.]

 Guide Lapto 01: "YOU ARE AT THE FLYING DISC STATION OF THE GREAT COURT."

 Dart: "The Signet Sphere should be in here."

 Guide Lapto 01: "SIGNET SPHERE. SIGNET SPHERE. SIGNET SPHERE. SIGNET SPHERE.
                 DART, ROSE, ALBERT, HASCHEL, MERU, KONGOL, AND MIRANDA. TOTAL
                 SEVEN. CONFIRMED ACCUSED."

 Dart: "'ACCUSED'? What is it saying?"

 Guide Lapto 01: "YOU ARE AT THE FLYING DISC STATION OF THE GREAT COURT."

 Dart: "It's a waste to ask."

[At the Great Court...]

 Dart: "Where are we?"

 Rose: "It's the court of Zenebatos. It is the place where judgment was passed
       for Non-Winglies under the name of fake justice. And still now...."

 Laptos: "GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY" <- repeated over and over

 Nomos: "MY NAME IS NOMOS. I AM THE JUSTICE. MY WORD IS THE ONLY TRUTH."

 Dart: "We are here to protect the Signet Sphere! Let us go through here!"

 Nomos: "ACCUSED DART, ROSE, ALBERT, HASCHEL, MIRANDA, MERU, AND KONGOL."

 Rose: "It seems you know we are here for the Signet Sphere. And you are trying
       to intervene. Why?"

 Nomos: "ACCUSATION. THE WILL OOOOOOOOOF THE CREATOR SOAAAAAAAAAA...."

 Rose: "It's not working."

 Dart: "Oh no!! Is it being manipulated by my father?"

 Nomos: "THUS THE DEATH PENALTY IS SENTENCED!! COME OUT!! WINGED EXECUTIONERS!!
        VECTOR, SELEBUS, KUBILA!! START THE EXECUTION!!"

[The party kills the executioners.]

 Nomos: "MASTER, HURRY TO THE GOD. REBELS AGAINST SOA'S WILL OVERCOME ME."

[Nomos disappears.]

 Rose: "The Signet Sphere is over there!"

 Dart: "Let's go!!"

[At the Signet Sphere...]

 Dart: "The Signet Sphere!!!"

 Rose: "He's done it. It is losing its magic power, this Moon Dagger is serving
       as proof."

 Dart: "How on earth did he get here!? !!"

 Zieg: "Now, the sky is one of my roads too."

 Dart: "Father!!"

 Zieg: "Can you hear the movements of the God of Destruction? As if a hymn to
       the new world."

 Rose: "It sounds like an outcry of the world to me!"

 Zieg: "With the 'outcry', Shana will be reborn to the god who no longer knows
       you!"

 Dart: "AAAARRRRGGGGHHH!!"

[Dart gets knocked away by Zieg.]

 Zieg: "She desires that too."

 Dart: "She does not!!"

 Zieg: "You'll see when you meet her. But for Shana, you are a mere object to
       be destroyed."

 Dart: "Wait!!"

[Zieg flies off.]

 Rose: "He is not Zieg."

 Albert: "Then who is he?"

 Dart: "We will find it out in the city of the last Signet Sphere. I will in
       Mayfil!"

[They return to their 'wings.']

 Coolon: "Where is the destination?"

 Dart: "Please to go Mayfil! Dad must be heading there!"

 Coolon: "The sky over Mayfil is filled with swirling souls. I don't think I
         can make it with my newborn wings."

 Dart: "What!? Then how should we go?"

 Coolon: "You should be able to go with the teleporting device."

 Dart: "Okay!"

[Zieg flies in.]

 Zieg: "...! Over 11,000 years and it still leads souls to hell. Maybe, it is
       connected to the Devildom. But, it doesn't matter now. The plan
       determined by Soa will drink everything to the last drop."

[He continues on. Dart's team arrives later.]

 Dart: "Rose, what's that?"

 Rose: "When there were still Winglies here, they used to suck souls from all
       over the world into that huge tower. So they could decide the
       destination of their souls. But, why?"

 Albert: "You want to say it should have been destroyed during the Dragon
         Campaign, don't you?"

 Haschel: "Both Aglis and Zenebatos were working. It shouldn't be that strange.

 Rose: "But we destroyed this place completely, so that they could never play
       with souls. But maybe this is.... Do the souls that couldn't completely
       die gather here?"

 Dart: "I don't like this."

 Rose: "But, whatever happens as long as the moon is in the sky, we are fine.
       The Signet Sphere is still safe."

 Dart: "Hurry up. We have to get there before Dad."

[In the next room, a Dragon is shown.]

 Albert: "This is the soul of Feyrbrand, the Green Tusked Dragon."

 Dart: "That is Feyrbrand!?"

 Rose: "It came out in response to the Dragoon Spirit of Albert."

 Dart: "You said souls that couldn't completely die gather here. Is it the
       same for Dragons?"

 Rose: "Yes, probably the defeat by Humans, who were supposed to be less
       powerful than them, became a burden on their soul. If we kill it again,
       we can probably break the attachment."

 Dart: "But we don't have time to deal with them."

 Rose: "No, we don't. I feel sorry, but.... We have to catch up with Zieg,
       or the world will end."

[When passing through a weird room with souls...]

 Dart: "Rose!?"

 Rose: "Don't come here."

 Soul: "The Black Monster. Finally you are dead. Like me. Like me. Like us."

 Rose: "Hate me if you want, but I cannot die now." (Please wait until
       everything is over.)

[Further on...]

 Dart: "We have come a long way, but where is the Signet Sphere? What's wrong?"

 Rose: "There is something over there."
 
 ????: "GWWWWARRRRGGGHH!"

[The soul of Lavitz appears.]

 Dart: "You, you are...no way."

 Albert: "Yes, it is possible in this city!!"

 Dart: "Lavitz!!"

 Lavitz: "It's been a while, Your Majesty Albert."

 Albert: "I knew it was you!"

 Lavitz: "Your Majesty Albert, I have the honor of seeing your face again. And
         Dart...while we have been apart, you have become strong."

 Dart: "Yeah. Since you left us, we have encountered many enemies."

 Lavitz: "'Enemies'. That's why there are so many souls that know you."

 Dart: "...?"

 Lavitz: "Souls that are attracted here remain with a variety of thoughts.
         That's why they are attracted by the gate of hell. Negative thoughts,
         attachments are the favorites of the devils from hell."

 Rose: "And those devils are driving Mayfil aren't they?"

 Lavitz: "Rose, there are many souls who know you. Yes, there are countless....

 Dart: "Lavitz, tell me! Why have you appeared in front of us!?"

 Albert: "Maybe.... Are you helping us out!?"

 Lavitz: "ARRGGHHH...! ARRGGGGHH!"

 Dart: "Lavitz!?"

 Lavitz: "Don't come near me."

 Dart: "!!"

[He transforms into some weird visage.]

 Ghost Lavitz: "Get out of here!!"

[He teleports out.]

 Rose: "He was talking about the 'devils'. I wonder if one of them is playing
       with the soul of Lavitz?"

 Dart: "What!?"

 Rose: "I cannot think of anything other than that."

 Albert: "Unforgivable!"

[They follow the ghost.]

 Dart: "Lavitz, why did you run away from us!?"

 Ghost Lavitz: "Who, who are you bastards?""

 Dart: "!? It's me, Dart!"

 Ghost Lavitz: "Dart."

 Albert: "Don't you recognize us!?"

 Ghost Lavitz: "Majesty...Albert. ARGH...! ARGHAAA...!!"

 Rose: "Look at the back of Lavitz. There is something attached. It seems that
       is affecting the soul. It smells of Devildom."

 Ghost Lavitz: "GGGWWWAAAAAHHHHHH!!"

[The party defeats Lavitz.]

 Zackwell: "Hee hee hee hee hee! What a show! It was so moving a reunion that
           I'm totally choked with tears"

 Dart: "Who...who are you?"

 Zackwell: "Oh, excuse me. My name is Zackwell. I am a resident of the darkness

 Dart: "You have taken over Lavitz!!"

 Zackwell: "Yes I have. The man insisted he was so worried about you that he
           couldn't bear dying. I thought it was a little presuming, but I
           granted him momentary life."

 Dart: "You!! Lavitz was my friend! How dare you! You will never get away with
       this!!"

 Zackwell: "Oh, can you defeat me? Hee hee hee hee hee hee."

[They defeat Zackwell, but the weird object attaches to Lavitz again.]

 Albert: "Dart!"

 Dart: "Lavitz!!"

[Dart throws down his weapon.]

 Dart: "Lavitz!"

 Lavitz: "AAArrrgghhhhh!"

[Lavitz impales himself, killing the thing on his back.]

 Lavitz: "Dart, Your Majesty, I am sorry. Even though I was being manipulated
         I was.... I could even...thanks to Zackwell. I could meet you again
         in death."

 Dart: "You are not dead! You will continue to live in us!"

 Lavitz: "There is no time left. I will lead you to the Magic Signet Sphere
         blocker with the last of my strength." (Farewell, Dart.)

 Dart: "Lavitz. Thank you."

[The way to the Signet Sphere is now open.]

 Dart: "We made it."

 Rose: "Yes. The moon has not set yet. The Signet Sphere is still safe."

 Dart: "It means Shana is still safe."

 Rose: "Once we go up this road of souls, there will be no return. We are
       climbing up."
       R1 -> Wait.
       R2 -> Yes.

       R1: "Wait. I have to make the final preparation."
 
           Rose: "Okay. But hurry."

       R2: "Yes. Lavitz showed us the way. I have no hesitation. Let's go!"

[They take the road of souls upwards to the Signet Sphere.]

 Dart: "It was safe."

 Rose: "That Signet Sphere is the last barrier to protect the world."

 Albert: "If it is destroyed...."

 Rose: "There will be no other way but to deal with god itself."

 Dart: "When Shana crosses to the Moon That Never Sets, the God of Destruction
       will be born...? I won't let it. I'll finish it here!"

 Zieg: "I think so too."

 Dart: "Dad!?"

[Zieg is below near the sphere.]

 Zieg: "I'll finish the world here."

 Rose: "Reveal yourself!"

 Zieg: "I don't hide. Our settlement is a peaceful one. We don't need weapons.
       A fight is not appropriate before the celebration of a birth."

 Dart: "I won't let you!! !!!"

 Zieg: "Don't come near me!!!"

[Zieg repels his son's dragoon form.]

 Dart: "I, I won't let you."

[Zieg destroys the Signet.]

 Zieg: "The arrow has already been released!! To the finale of the world!!"

 Rose: "The moon is falling!"

 Albert: "The, the world is ending. Does that mean that Humans cannot revoke
         the will of the creator!?"

 Dart: "Not yet. Don't give up!! It's just the signet of the Moon is broken!!"

 Rose: "Yes. We can still struggle. The moon has not obtained Shana yet!! Let's
       go pursue Zieg!!"

[On the balcony nearby...]

 Dart: "Is this a dead end!?"

[Coolon appears.]

 Dart: "The wings of Savan!! Take us to the moon!!"

[The Moon That Never Sets falls onto the Divine Tree.]

 Meru: "Dart, look!!"

 Dart: "That's it!"

[The Virages that escape the moon damage Coolon.]
 
 Meru: "Ahhhhh!"
 Dart: "Ahhhhh!"

[Everyone crashes at the destination...]

o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

 Coolon: "Sorry. I cannot...fly...anymore..."

 Dart: "Coolon...."

 Rose: "Everything is turning out just as Zieg wished. The seal of the moon
       was broken, and the terribly disasterous plan laid by Soa finally has
       started. Those Virages are mere advance guards for the primary Virage
       Embryo. It seems the birth of the God of Destruction will only be a
       matter of time. Does the Divine Tree, which gave birth to all the
       species, want this as well?"

 Dart: "The world is not over yet. We can still fight to save it, can't we!?"

 Rose: "After you've seen those, you still can say that.... Let's go. The
       Moon That Never Sets is waiting for us."

[A shiny thing is further down the path.]

 Dart: "Rose, what's this?"

 Rose: "It's a fruit of the Divine Tree. It seems to be dried up, though."

 Dart: "'Fruit'. Did all the species really arise from such small things?"

 Rose: "Only the creator Soa knows that. So, it's just a legend for us. But,
       we are standing on the Divine Tree which supposedly was in the same
       legend. We'd better believe it."

 Dart: "I guess so."

 Rose: "Let's move on. We better hurry up or there will be no one even to tell
       the 'legend'."

[Another fruit is down the path...]

 Rose: "I think... This fruit was...shed by some kind of fish."

 Dart: "One of the fruits arisen from the Divine Tree."

 Rose: "Yes. It was the same for us Humans."

 Dart: "The God of Destruction will start the same way, won't it?"

 Rose: "Yes... Let's move on."

[Even further on...]

 Rose: "This stream.... It seems like it is sendinga vital force to the Moon
       That Never Sets. It must be that the Divine Tree is getting ready to
       give birth to the God of Destruction."

 Dart: "...! Then, if we take this stream in this...."

 Rose: "Yes. It will carry us to the top. Let's hurry."

[They all jump in.]

 Dart: "What a stream!"

[They all get spit out.]

 Dart: "We got right up close."

 Albert: "In addition, maybe because we let ourself flow in the vital force, I
         feel revitalized."

 Miranda: "It means that the power of the Divine Tree that gave birth to all
          species is still alive."

 Rose: "In order to kill all the species, it revived the power."

 Meru: "Landing succeeded!!"

 Haschel: "Taa!"

 Dart: "What is that?"

[A weird caterpillar is on the tree.]

 Meru: "It looks like a...bug."

 Haschel: "Did Kongol's landing awaken it?"

 Dart: "...We gotta get going."

[Dart finds another sparkle.]

 Dart: "This is one of the fruits too."

 Rose: "Yes, and all the species who were born in this way are about to be
       annihilated."

 Dart: "Rose...."

 Rose: "...Let's get going."

[Further on still...]

 Dart: "It'll be soon."

 Rose: "Yes. But look at that."

 Dart: "Is that the caterpillar from back there?"

 Rose: "It's a miracle. There was an unhatched fruit left over. !! It is a
       sub-species of a new insect. It was just born, and it is coming after
       us!"

[They defeat the insectine boss.]

 Dart: "We barely defeated it. Let's go. We are almost at the moon."

[They continue on.]

 Dart: "Moon That Never Sets.... It is spreading poison all over the world."

 Rose: "In order to stop the poison, we have to reach the core of the Moon
       before it is too late."

 Albert: "Unless Shana and the 'core', as Rose says, are wedded, the God of
         Destruction won't be born. Right? It is a dilemma for us because we
         want to take Shana back. If we don't meet Shana, and if we can destroy
         only the core of the moon, the world will be saved."

 Miranda: "But, Zieg is here for sure. With Shana."

 Haschel: "That is the only chance to save her."

 Meru: "We will save both the world and Shana."

 Dart: "Fate is not in the hands of the creator. It's in our hands! We won't
       let Soa decide the fate of the world! That goes for Shana's fate as
       well!! We will decide our own fate!!"

[They jump in the stream that leads to the moon.]

[A stream from the Divine Tree takes them into the moon's subsurface.]

 Dart: "Is this the Moon That Never Sets!?"

 Rose: "Yes. It has been long. Very.... Let's get going."

[The moon shakes.]

 Dart: "The moon is shaking!? Dont tell me...the God of Destruction is about
       to be born!?"

 Rose: "It cannot be...! The birth of the God of Destruction is our death!"

 Dart: "That's right! We are still alive! Let's go! Must stop my father! Wow!?"

[When the pulsating light stops, everyone is in...]

 Dart: "Is this a forest?"

 Albert: "I thought we stepped into the moon."

 Haschel: "But, indeed this tree is a true tree."

 Miranda: "Oh no, we were sent to the ground!?"

 Rose: "No. Listen. It's the heartbeat of the Virage Embryo, the God of
       Destruction. An empty body that is the living corpse from which the soul
       was taken out by ancient Winglies on the day it was conceived in the
       Divine Tree.... We must be in the moon."

 Dart: "Then no matter what it looks like, we gotta keep going!"

[Further along in the 'forest'...]

 Dart: "It looks like a Grassland."

[The Grassland changes to a wintry setting.]

 Dart: "Miranda, what's wrong?"

 Miranda: "I know this place."

 Dart: "Does it look like the forest of your home?"

 Miranda: "Not only that.... It is the forest of Mille Seseau where I grew up.
          I'll be back soon. Sorry, but wait for me here. There is something I
          have to check...alone."

 Dart: "Miranda!?"

[She runs off alone to a small place where a flower blooms.]

 Dart: "As I expected...this is the forest of my home. Why is this in the moon?
       This rose is...."

[Flashback to that same spot, when Miranda was younger.]

 Miranda: "Mother! Where are you going!?

 Miranda's Mother: "Go home Miranda!"

 Man: "Huh? You have a kid!?"

 Miranda's Mother: "Um, yeah."

 Miranda: "Mother! Don't go! Father is calling you!"

 Man: "What are you gonna do?"

 Miranda's Mother: "Because I married that man my life has been completely
                   ruined. He hardly works, and drinks all the time with the
                   money I earned! I don't even have enough food and am
                   starving everyday! I cannot stand it anymore!!"

 Man: "..."

 Miranda's Mother: "A beautiful life must be waiting for me if I leave this
                   forest! Yes, I can say farewell to this miserable life! Now,
                   let's go!"

 Miranda: "Mo, Mother!"

[Back to the present. The rose sparkles.]

 Miranda: "Wh, what!?"

[The Death Rose attacks Miranda. Her mother's face is in the flower petals.]

 Miranda: "Why? Why did you abandon dad and me!?"

 Miranda's Mother: "Ah, Miranda. I had no choice...."

 Miranda: "Shut up! Dad fell ill and I became an orphan. You can never imagine
          how I have lived since then!"

 Miranda's Mother: "...Ahhh.... It hurts. I understand that what I've done is
                   unforgivable as a mother. But, I want you to understand."

 Miranda: "What do you want me to understand!!"

 Miranda's Mother: "I worked because I didn't want you, a newborn baby, to
                   starve. But he didn't even try to work."

 Miranda: "My father may not have been a respected man. But at least he was
          with me all the time, unlike you!!"

 Miranda's Mother: "...Ahhh... It hurts. I can imagine how angry you are at me.
                   But I never forgot about you, even for a moment."

 Miranda: "Don't lie to me!!"

 Miranda's Mother: "It's not a lie. I visited him so many times to take you
                   with me. But every time, he just kicked me out."

 Miranda: "What...? My mother was thinking about me."

 Miranda's Mother: "You have the same name as the goddess of Mille. She is 
                   pure and loved by everybody. I named you that because it
                   was my wish for you. ...Ahhh.... It hurts. I am sorry to
                   make you feel lonely. Miranda, forgive me."
                   R1 -> I'll forgive you.
                   R2 -> No! I cannot forgive you!

                   R1: "Oh, you can forgive me? Thank you, Miranda."

                   R2: "Ah, Miranda. It's painful. As long as you hate me, I
                       can't return to normal."

[Back in the forest...]

 Miranda: "Mother, I was wrong. I entered the palace in order to preach love,
          and to build a world where everybody can live happily, but my heart
          was filled with sorrow and hatred. And without knowing, I was
          absorbed in fighting in order to ease my loneliness. I didn't even
          try to understand my mother's pain and agony, just accumulate hatred,
          and hurt many people. I don't deserve to be a Sacred Sister."

 Dart: "Miranda, what happened!?"

 Meru: "Are you really okay!? Your eyes are kind of watery."

 Miranda: "Sorry. Please leave me alone now. Let's go. That's the only thing
          we can do now."

[A little further in, past the cold forestry setting...]

 Dart: "What is this? We gotta go forward anyway."

[They walk forward and find themselves in...a human inn?]

 Dart: "There are people...? What's going on? Why are people living in the
       moon?"

 Rose: "I still don't know. But...."

 Dart: "Rose!? What are you doing?"

[She hits Dart with her rapier.]

 Rose: "You feel pain, it is certain this is not just an illusion. This world
       is 'reality.'"

 Albert: "Indeed. I've never visited the moon before. But, I cannot help but
         feel I know this place. People's faces, clothes.... It's not a
         mistake. This is a building in Serdio."

 Haschel: "I have traveled all over Endiness and they all have typical Serdian
          faces. Look, the girl over there.... Looks Serdian. No.... She is...
          not." (It cannot be!?)

[The girl disappears into a mirror.]

 Dart: "Disappeared...!?"

 Rose: "It looks like that is reality here too."

[Behind the mirror, there's another type of land...]

 Dart: "I understand...that this place is not what it appears to be, but where
       are we now?"

 Albert: "A world behind the wall.... It seems as if the labyrinth of the moon
         is not refusing us."

 Haschel: "No, almost as if it's maybe inviting us."

 Rose: "Minitos.... It seems this place belongs to them."

 Albert: "I think they were the 99th species."

 Dart: "Maybe they can tell us something about this place."

[The party continues and finds the girl.]

 Haschel: (!?)

 Dart: "You don't seem to be one of the Minitos."

 Haschel: "Look at her closely. It's the girl in the room we came from."

 Dart: "Oh. She's the girl who disappeared into the wall, isn't she!? Hi, what
       are you doing here?"

[She flees into a vortex.]

 Haschel: "Dart! This girl...doesn't know about you yet."

 Dart: "What are you talking about?"

 Haschel: "Let me go now. She is...Claire. She is inviting me. Sorry...but
          please wait for me here."

 Dart: "Haschel!?"

 Rose: "Haschel was right. The girl was inviting Haschel, not you. We can only
       wait for him."

 Dart: "Okay, but, as with Miranda, what's going on in the moon?"

[Haschel and the girl are alone.]

 Haschel: "Claire.... Is it you, Claire? It's me. Your father."

 Claire: "Don't come here! I hate you dad!!"

 Haschel: "Claire."

 Claire: "Always, always strict discipline.... What can I use such a thing
         for!? The power to destroy!? The power to hurt people!? I don't need
         such power!!"

 Haschel: "I strictly disciplined you since you were little. I only had you. I
          had to hand my art, my ancestral art, down to the next generation."

 Claire: "It's not fair! I just want to sing songs, chitchat with my friends,
         pick flowers and fall in love!"

 Haschel: "Our art was never meant to hurt people. It is a martial art to give
          life to people. Please understand."

 Claire: "I don't understand!!"

[Haschel has to fight Claire.]

 Haschel: "Do you remember the first time we matched wills? You read my
          movement in a blink, and went on the offensive with swiftness. It
          was an innate art."

 Claire: "I don't think so. I am just a girl, like the ones you can find
         anywhere."

 Haschel: "No! You can surpass me. Nobody has been charmed by the War God as
          much as you. Your hidden power..."

 Claire: "Ah.... It's hot inside my body. Dad, help me. Somebody is taking me."

 Haschel: "!! C, Claire, what's wrong!?"

 Claire: "YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK!"

[Claire undergoes a transformation but returns.]

 Claire: "I hate you, dad!! You did this to my body!! It's your fault, dad!!"

 Haschel: "No, its impossible. The transmigration of the War God.... Is she
          demonized!!"

 Claire: "YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK!"

 Haschel: "Incredible. Nobody has ever reached that level except the founder!"

[She does a huge attack on Haschel.]

 Haschel: "UGH.... What...? The black art of Nagarujuna, Four-Gods-Destruction!
          How did Claire learn...? UGH.... There is nothing I can do."

 Claire: "I am the War God! I preside of the art of war, and beckon death. It
         was  your desire to awaken me. I am the answer to your long quest."

 Haschel: "No! You are my Claire! You are not the War God! Leave from the body
          of my Claire!! I can hear.... It's the pained voice of Claire....
          Hang in there, I'm coming to save you!! I feel your art down to my
          very core."
          R1 -> Mind's eye, awaken!
          R2 -> Claire, please forgive me.

          R1: "I don't care about myself. I have to save my daughter, Claire!
              I'll focus all my body and soul into this, and kill the devil
              that possesses my Claire!!"

          R2: "How can I exorcise this? Being obsessed with martial arts has
             made my precious daughter endure this suffering. Forgive me."

[Claire attacks and he repels her.]

 Claire: "Thank you, dad.

[Back in 'reality'...]

 Haschel: "Forgive me, Claire."

 Dart: "Haschel, is it over?"

 Miranda: "Haschel, you also saw the past?"

 Haschel: "Yes, I did. But...the past wasn't as bitter as I imagined."

 Rose: "It seems everything, both the future and past, are filled in this
       moon. The future when the world will be destroyed.... And our past...."

 Dart: "Both Miranda and Haschel were made to see the past by the Moon, right?"

 Rose: "They 'see'. As I told you, were are in reality. It's not illusion.
       Maybe they can do it because they are the 108th species and gods."

 Haschel: "Let's move on. We wasted lots of time."

[Down another path out of 'Bale'...]

 Dart: "What is this!? The ground is so far away!!"

 Albert: "Are we floating in the air!?"

 Rose: "You can stand up. It seems there is an invisible floor."

 Dart: "Are we really in the sky?"

 Meru: "It looks like it. 'Cuz, this is a cloud! Even I've never been in such
       a high place...."

 Rose: "Really, anything can happen. Don't just look at the view forever, we
       are moving on."

[A large shadow goes over the ground.]

 Rose: "That is.... Oh no! Michael!! No! I couldn't have been mistaken! I was
       with him for more than 10,000 years!"

 Dart: "Is that your dragon, Rose?"

 Rose: "It was the Vassal Dragon, my Dragon!"

[The dragon fires beams of energy.]

 Rose: "Run!!

[The party jumps off the path, splitting into two. Dart and Rose are off in
 one group, with everyone else in the other.]

 Meru: "They're not around here."

 Haschel: "It's Dart and Rose. They should be fine like us."

 Miranda: "Of course. It's impossible for them to die from just an attack of a
          dragon."

 Albert: "She called it 'MIchael'. Why did Rose's Vassal Dragon attack us?"

 Miranda: "This is just my guess, but in the moon, I think some sort of feeling
          that exists in our heart materializes itself."

 Haschel: "You mean Rose had some caring feelings for her Vassal Dragon?"

 Meru: "I flew around here and don't you think this place seems like the Home
       of Gigantos?"

 Kongol: "Yes. But this was old Holy Land. Long long ago."

 ????: "URGH!"

 Voice: "There is one hiding down here! Don't miss even one! Annihilate all
        Gigantos!"

 ????: "ARRRGGGGHHHH!"

 ????: "Hey!! Doel's coming!! Run!!"

[Emperor Doel and some of his men were slaying Giganto-killers 20 years prior.]

 Doel: "There will be no one to devastate the Holy Land of the Gigantos ever."

 Knight of Serdio: "But Your Majesty Doel, we may be too late. Only if Your
                   Majesty Carlo gives us permission to dispatch."

 Doel: "Don't talk about him. He is...no longer alive."

 Knight of Serdio: "Your Majesty Doel! There is something in here!"

 Doel: "Come out."

[A young Giganto walks out -- it's Kongol.]

 Doel: "A Giganto child!? I am the new King of Serdio, Doel. There are no more
       people to persecute you. You can live in peace from now on. What's your
       name?"

 Kongol: "Human! Get out!"

 Knight of Serdio: "Don't be so disrespectful! His Majesty Doel tried to help
                   Gigantos fight against Humans!!"

 Doel: "I am a Human, but before that, I am a man who wishes the coexistence
       of all species. Don't you like peace?"

 Kongol: "Me...Kongol. Everybody dead. Kongol alone."

 Doel: "Then come with us?"

 Meru: "Is this something in Kongol's heart?"

 Albert: "Then is that the truth of my Uncle Doel?"

 Kongol: "Emperor Doel!! Emperor Doel!! Emperor Doel!! Emperor Doel!! I have
         something to do! I go now!"

[Up the stairs nearby...]

 Kongol: "Emperor Doel said. Strong leader is required to make equal world.
         Strong leader needs strong power. Kongol will get strongest power.
         Dart needs Kongol, so Kongol go."

 Meru: "Kongol, what are you talking about?"

[Kongol's left on his own already.]

 Haschel: "Wait for him here."

[Kongol goes ahead and finds another Giganto.]

 Indora: "So, you came."

 Kongol: "Brother. I became stronger."

 Indora: "I see."

 Kongol: "Brother the strongest. Kongol admire brother. Brother Kongol's pride.

 Indora: "I see."

 Kongol: "Brother, Kongol needs power. To help Dart. To save world."

 Indora: "I see."

 Kongol: "Brother, Kongol overcomes now. Kongol overcomes brother!"

 Indora: "Come!"

[The two brothers start to fight.]

 Indora: "What's wrong with you? You're so pathetically weak!"

[Kongol wins.]

 Indora: "Kongol.... A hero. The strongest hero of Gigantos."

 Kongol: "Brother...."

 Indora: "Go, to the people who need your power."

 Kongol: "Brother, Kongol is...."

 Indora: "To fulfill desire is the power of destruction. To care for others is
         the power of truth. You...received the power to overcome Indora....
         The strongest power.... Kongol, the pride of Indora.... Well done...."

 Kongol: "Brother!"

[Indora disappears.]

 Haschel: "You conquered it, didn't you?"

 Kongol: "Brother...praised Kongol. First time for Kongol to praise. Kongol
         happy."

 Haschel: "But, what does the moon want to show us?"

 Miranda: "It's not a moon anymore. It's the flesh of the God of Destruction."

 Albert: "And.... What the God of Destruction wants to show us is annihilation.

 Meru: "Let's go! We gotta look for Dart and Rose!"

[They return to 20-years-past Bale.]

 Albert: "We couldn't find Dart anywhere."

 Haschel: "Hmm, maybe it's better to wait for them somewhere rather than just
          blindly look around."

 Meru: "Then, let's wait here. This town is the only place there are lots of
       people."

 Albert: "It seems that is the right thing to do."

[The view changes to Dart & Rose.]

 Dart: "I understand that we lost everybody because the Dragon attacked us.
       But why? Why did your Vassal Dragon attack us, Rose? Was it to bring
       the two of us here, the place filled with Dragons?"

 Rose: "I think.... We will find out. Soon. Let's go. Either to destroy the
       Virage Embryo...or to fight against Zieg. I need everybody with me."

 Dart: "Rose...."

 Rose: "Don't be so shocked. I trust everybody, too."

[Up the path, little doggie-things are around.]

 Dart: "Rose, what are these?"

 Rose: "This is a baby dragon. It was called a Pseudo Dragon. It seems
       everything, including the future and past, exist here. My favorite
       Pseudo Dragon didn't make it to the present age. But I am encountering
       the past now. But, we don't have time to be sentimental. Let's go."

[Up the road a smidgen...]

 Rose: "Dart, can you wait a little? He is calling me over there."

 Dart: "Okay."

[At a dead end, a dead dragon is found.]

 Rose: "I knew it. I know this place. It's where I met Michael for the first
       time."

[Flashback. Zieg and Rose in the past are here.]

 Rose: "Darkness Dragon.... Sorry. We don't have time. Winglies are mighty.
       Mighty enough to annihilate us, and the entire species. In order to
       liberate Humans, we have to sacrifice you, Dragon. Now is the time to
       decide, extinction or war."

[A baby Dragon pops outta the black mist.]

 Zieg: "We choose 'war'. The Dragoon Spirit left by the Darkness Dragon, and
       this newborn dragon will be the spearhead of the war."

 Rose: "This baby needs a name. Black Burst Dragon, Michael. How about Michael?

 Zieg: "Rose's Vassal Dragon, the Darkness Dragoon, the Black Burst Dragon,
       Michael. It's a good name. So now we can go."

 Rose: "Yes. The real war has not started yet."

[Back to the present.]

 Rose: "Michael! Don't you recognize me!?"

[The two start to fight.]

 Rose: "Michael! It's me, Rose! Don't you recognize me!?"

 Dart: "It seems not to be working."

 Rose: "It's out of control, just like last time. He forgot the pride of the
       Dragon and turned himself into a mere raving beast."

 Dart: "It has a wildness een beyond that of Feyrbrand! Damn!! What a Dragon!
       It yields to neither sword nor magic!!"

 Rose: "The Darkness Dragon is the strongest Dragon of all, having the best
       attack and defense, along with having the best agility."

 Dart: "I don't need to hear about it! Is there anyway to defeat him!?"

 Rose: "Michael's shell is special armor for the Darkness Dragon. It repels
       any attack by the enemy."

 Dart: "What should we do!?"

 Rose: "There is only one blind spot."

 Dart: "What is it!? Tell me now!!"

 Rose: "God! What should I do!?"
       R1 -> Tell Dart the blind spot.
       R2 -> I can't....

       R1: "Afer he shoots the black laser, his defense falls a second,
           showing his heart. That's his only weak spot."

       R2: Dart: "Rose!! What are you doing!! We have to do something or we
                 will be finished!!"

[They both defeat Michael.]

 Rose: "A Dragon's body is capable of enormous endurance. But, it's heart is
       not. After many fights, it becomes savage, and starts to blindly attack
       people and in the end, it won't listen to the orders of Dragoons either.
       That's why I killed Michael!! I killed him with these hands!!"

 Dart: "That's enough of looking back at the past. You have lived for 10,000
       years because you didn't want to see the future to be destroyed, right,
       Rose?"

 Rose: "You are right. Thank you. You reminded me of what's important."

 Dart: "Let's look for Albert and the others. Then we have to head to the core
       of the moon."

[They both return to Bale.]

 Meru: "Dart!! Rose!!"

 Albert: "We were right about waiting here."

 Dart: "All of you look...all right."

 Albert: "Of course. We cannot fall until we complete our mission. Now, before
         we leave, let's exchange information."

[They do so.]

 Dart: "I see. Doel was in the Home of Gigantos.... To save Gigantos. Hmm."

 Albert: "It wasn't the cruel uncle we've known."

 Dart: "But it's that Doel who killed King Carlo."

 Rose: "I think we will find out what the moon wants to show us when we meet
       Doel. Besides, I think we have to see it in order to proceed, given the
       facts thus far."

 Dart: "That's right. Let's go out on the town now."

[In Bale, they talk to the gate guards.]

 Albert: "I am Albert. Is Uncle Doel in?"

 Gate Keeper of Serdio: "I have been waiting for you."

 Albert: "Waiting for me?"

 Gate Keeper of Serdio: "Please go ahead."

[Inside Doel's chamber.]

 Albert: "Let me go alone from here."

[He enters Doel's chamber alone.]

 Doel: "I have been waiting for you, Albert."

 Albert: "You 'have been waiting'. Then it's simple. You must know the reason
         why I'm here."

 Doel: "You are here to find out the truth about whether I assassinated your
       father, my brother, and the reason. I would say...it was to save Serdio
       from an incompetent leader named Carlo."

 Albert: "My father was not incompetent! He was loved by his people and admired
         by his vassals!"

 Doel: "You were a mere six-year-old kid back then. How could you know? What
       was brought on the people by overtaxation and disorder!? What can
       ministers soaked in corruption do!? You have been given false truths,
       so how could you know!?"

 Albert: "Even if...it was the truth, you shouldn't have killed him!"

 Doel: "I guess you won't be satisfied with words. Defeat me to find out the
       rest!!"

[The battle begins.]

 Albert: "Uncle Doel! Why did you eliminate my father!!"

 Doel: "It's obvoius! The people of Serdio wanted me! They desired my power
       as the true leader!!"

 Albert: "It is not true!! What people desire is not power. It's peace."

 Doel: "Who do you think brought peace!? Who do you think brought order and
       hope back to Serdio!? Peace cannot be maintained without power!"

 Albert: "Uncle, you oppressed people with your power. How much value can we
         give to such a transient peace. What people need is...."

 Doel: "I don't need to hear about things like justice or love!"

 Albert: "Power alone does not solve anything!"

 Doel: "The ideals and reality are different!!"

 Albert: "Wake up, uncle!!"

 Doel: "You are so persistant!! I cannot believe this. How can someone as
       helpless as you be this powerful!?"

 Albert: "You wouldn't understand this, uncle. You have had faith only in your
         own power."

 Doel: "What did you say!?"

 Albert: "I'm different from you and I am not alone. My friends have always
         been at my side during the many occasions when I was dispirited. I've
         overcome difficulties."

 Doel: "Ha Ha! Silly!!"

 Albert: "When I was young, my father would often say that he didn't quite
         have the stature to be King. Without Doel, he couldn't do anything.
         He also said that it is you who was most likely to take the throne."

 Doel: "I can't believe it. That's...why.... What did he see in me?"

 Albert: "My father trusted in you. If you had gotten together and governed
         the country, this tragedy would never have happened."

 Doel: "Albert! I'm a mere shadow of Carlo! I have no way left but to go
       forward!!"

 Albert: "Uncle!!"

[Albert defeats his relative.]

 Doel: "Why? Why doesn't my power work!? Why am I losing even though my power
       exceeds yours!?"

 Albert: "For Lavitz, who devoted himself to me and fell. For knights who fell
         in battle. I have to win for them!"

 Doel: "Absurd! You are saying I have been wrong."

 Albert: "I lost so many people in battle. In my times of deep sorrow and
         despair, my many friends like Dart imparted to me courage and
         strength."

 Doel: "I see. You are not fighting alone. That's why I cannot defeat you."

 Albert: "Uncle...."

 Doel: "I've been unwise to become infatuated with power. But, I have no
       regrets. Carlo, the king's last words were to take care of this country
       and you. We have different ways but they lead to the same intention. As
       a man who grives for the country, the rest depends on you."

 Albert: "Uncle!!"

[Doel disappears.]

 Albert: "It was the sad truth, wasn't it? But the annihilation of the world
         will generate a sadness equal to the number of living people."

 Dart: "I won't let it. I will save both the world and Shana! We are here for
       that!"

[Down the path that Michael blocked...]

 Dart: "What is that?"

 Miranda: "Incredible.... I cannot tbelieve there is a palace more beautiful
          than the Crystal Palace."

 Meru: "That is the palace of the Winglies."

 Albert: "It could not be made with human technology."

 Meru: "Let's go!"

 Dart: "The path has vanished!?"

[Meru is teleported somewhere by herself.]

 Meru: "What are you doin'!! Oops...? Where is everybody!? The... The
       Archangel!? Why are you here?"

 Archangel: "Meru...I know everything. You threw the pride of the sublime
            Winglies away, and have been with barbaric Humans, haven't you."

 Meru: "Archangel! Humans are not barbaric! They have many good things which
       we Winglies don't have!"

 Archangel: "Silence. Fine, Meru. I will make you remember the sublime spirit
            of a Wingly."

[The fight begins.]

 Archangel: "Wake up, Meru. You have already seen the reality of arrogant and
            ignoble Humans!"

 Meru: "Archangel! Humans can never be ignoble creatures! They help each other
       when they are in trouble, even if they don't know each other. And above
       all they have dreams and hopes."

 Archangel: "Silly. Humans are feeble-minded even more than you would think.
            We have to rule them or eventually they will cease to exist."

 Meru: "I don't think so!! All the lives in this world are equal. We shouldn't
       rule or be ruled!"

 Archangel: "Silence, Meru! Have you forgotten what we have accomplished? We
            have stabilized the chaotic world, and saved tribes that would
            otherwise be extinct."

 Meru: "Really!"

 Archangel: "Once there was 107 species and half no longer exist. Our rule
            prevents the subversion of the world."

 Meru: "That's wrong. 'Cuz there were species that were stamped out during the
       Winglies' domination!"

 Archangel: "They were meant to be extinct from the beginning."

 Meru: "You liar!! You destroyed them because they rebelled against the
       Winglies!!"

 Archangel: "Meru! A heretic like you disturbs our ordered world."

 Meru: "Shut up!! You are not real! You are an invented god so they can justify
       themselves, Archangel."

 Archangel: "It's not true. I am a reflection of your mind. The disdain for
            Humans in your mind created me."

 Meru: "It's not true! I don't believe it!!"

 Archangel: "Meru, don't lie to yourself. You think you can continue to deceive
            yourself playing a fool like that?"

 Meru: "You fool! Don't tell me crazy things!! I love Humans! I adore Dart,
       Shana, and the others! This is real!!"

 Archangel: "...Meru."

 Meru: "Get out of my sight!! I love Humans."

[The battle ends.]

 Dart: "Meru!! Are you okay!?"

 Meru: "Of course I am!? Let's go!!"

[They ride up to a different world.]

 Dart: "What is going on here? It is different from any part of the world we've
       known."

 Rose: "Indeed, the places we have been looked like places on earth. But this
       is a completely different world."

 Dart: "Don't tell me, this is the core of the moon!?"

 Rose: "This look is appropriate for the world of the Virage Embryo, the God
       of Destruction, to be born."

 Dart: "Let's hurry up! If this is our destination, my dad should be heading
       here too!"

[The party continues until--]

 ????: "My world. My future. My heart..."

 Dart: "Who is it!?"

 ????: "My world. My future. My heart..."

 Rose: "It is talkign directly to our minds."

 ????: "...Dart."

 Dart: "Oh no! Is it Shana!?"

[At the room beyond, a massive thing is sitting.]

 Dart: "Wha...what's this!?"

 Rose: "It's a Super Virage! I guess he is acting as a gate keeper to protect
       the God of Destruction!"

 Dart: "I don't care what is waiting for us! Yaaaaa!!!"

[They defeat the Super Virage.]

 Dart: "Was the Super Virage that we defeated, in reality, Shana?"

 Rose: "I don't think so."

 Dart: "Why are you so sure!?"

 Rose: "We, well...."

 Albert: "Dart, pull yourself together!"

[At the moon's core, Shana floats unconscious.]

 Dart: "!? Shana!! !?"

[Zieg drops down and stops him.]

 Rose: "Zieg!! You don't deserve to use spirits!!"

 Zieg: "You say it even after this?"

 Rose: "Oh no, the Red-Eye Dragon still recognizes you!?"

 Zieg: "This is the truth. And the annihilation of the world that is about to
       occur is the truth as well!!"

 Dart: "Dad, stop it. The power is...not generated for that!!"

 Zieg: "Everything was born to die!! It's the same for spirits or the world!!
       Learn through your body!!"

 Dart: "Stttttttoooooooooop!!!!"

[They start fighting.]

 Zieg: "What's wrong with you, Dart! You're so pathetically weak!!"

 Dart: "Darn!! This is my father's power!!"

[Zieg Feld is finally defeated.]

 Zieg: "The time has come...I no longer need this flesh."

[Zieg dies suddenly and a weird spectre emerges.]

 Dart: "Wha...!?"

 Rose: "Melbu Frahma!!"

 Melbu Frahma: "I am the famous Melbu Frahma, supreme leader of the Winglies.
               I've been waiting for this moment for over 10,000 years!"

 Rose: "Why!? You must have been defeated by Zieg!!"

 Melbu Frahma: "It's true that the sword of that man penetrated me. But, what
               vanished is only my flesh. I cast a petrifying spell on the man,
               at the same time, I transmigrated my soul to the spirit. The
               sublime soul is immortal."

 Dart: "How long have you been manipulating my dad!?"

 Melbu Frahma: "At that moment, I reentered the light. The first light after
               11,000 years. When the Black Monster came to Neet, that foolish
               soul tried to release the power of the Dragoon, without knowing
               that I was waiting for that moment!!"

 Rose: "So...it was then!!"

 Melbu Frahma: "I was released from the spirit and revived! In order to obtain
               an eternal body that is proper for an immortal soul!! And now,
               I am becoming a god!!"

[Shana is taken out of the Virage's embryo and Melbum moves in.]

 Rose: "Is he merging with the Virage Embryo!?"

 Dart: "Is he going to be the god instead of Shana!?"

 Melbu Frahma: "You are right. I obtained the flesh of the God of Destruction!!
               I am the 'God' himself!!"

 ????: "A god? Don't make me laugh."

[Lloyd shows up.]

 Dart: "Lloyd! You are alive!"

 Lloyd: "I cannot die with the wrong god still around! There is no space for
        you in my utopia!! Melbu Frahma!! You forgot our supernatural spirit
        and pursued your own interests! Unforgivable!! AHHHHHHHHHH!!

 Melbu Frahma: "You bothersome dragonfly!! It's annoying!! CRASH!!"

[Lloyd darts around but ends up getting speared by a powerful beam attack.]

 Lloyd: "GWAH!!"

 Dart: "!! Lloyd!! What is this!?"

 Lloyd: "It is the Dragoon Spirit of the Divine Dragon and...the Dragon Buster.

 Dart: "Are you here to give us this!?"

 Lloyd: "Don't be conceited. I just ended up here while I was pursuing my own
        ideal."

 Dart: "Yeah, right."

 Lloyd: "His birth will be the death of the world. Hurry up.... Stop him....
        Farewell.... People who confront the fate of Soa...."

[Lloyd disappears.][Acquired Divine Dragoon Spirit][Acquired Dragon Buster]

 R1 -> No. we need to prepare.
 R2 -> Let's go. Our last battle.

 R1: "No, we need to prepare."
 R2: "Let's go. Our last battle."

 Melbu Frahma: "I have acquired all. The immortality.... And the ultimate
               power.... I am the god...who purifies the world...! Under the
               fate determined by Soa. Death to those who rebel against fate.
               Death to all life...! And may your death bless the new world to
               which I shall descend!!"

 Dart: "We won't let you!! We are the Dragoons!! We are ready to fight against
       fate!! Let's go!!"

[The ultimate battle begins. After a lengthy battle, Dart uses the Divine
Dragon spirit to fight Melbu Frahma's 7th-generation form and defeat it.]

 Melbu Frahma: "Arrrrggghhhhhhhhh!!"

 Dart: "Look! Shana!!"

 Shana: Dart!"

 Zieg: "I have been waiting for this moment. I was captured, waiting so
       long. I am sorry."

 Dart! Arrrghghhhhh!

 Haschel: "Hmm?"
 Meru: "Ahh!"
 Kongol: "What?"

[Melbu, who had exploded partially, forms once again to shoot lasers.]

 Melbu Frahma: "How dare you!? Inferior humans cannot outsmart me, a god!"

 Zieg: "Rose, the time has come. This is the end of our long journey."

 Rose: "Zieg..."

 Zieg: "Could you come with me?"

 Rose: "Yes. I will never leave you again."

 Melbu Frahma: "Arrrrgrrrrr!"

 Dart: "Damn!"

 Melbu Frahma: "Ahhhhh!"

 Zieg: "Dart, you have grown up! I couldn't do anything for you as a father.
       Please forgive me."

 Dart: "But father, we finally met! This isn't fair!"

 Rose: "Dart, I'm so glad I met you!"

 Zieg: "Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!"

[Rose and Zieg go to attack Melbu Frahma and explode near him.]

 Dart: "Rose! Father!"

 Shana: "No, Dart!"

[The moon stats to explode. Zieg and Rose are not dead, yet.]

 Zieg: "My role has ended. Place the weights of the future by yourself. This is
       your age to give, Shana."

 Dart: "What are you talking about? We're all in it together."

 Rose: "We were never meant to exist in this age."

 Dart: "Noooooooo!"

[Rose and Zieg lag behind.]

 Rose: "My age ended in remote antiquity. Farewell, Dart, and thank you!"

[The Divine Tree explodes also. Everyone but Rose and Zieg makes it out.]

 Dart: "Rose! Fatherrrrr!"

[The ending montage scenes play out.]
