    SaGa Frontier 2
    Game Script and Plot Analysis (Plot Guide) v1.01
    This guide is the sole property of its author, Alvina Lee, and may not be
    reproduced, distributed, stolen or sold without permission. It is considered a
    serious offense to violate this disclaimer. If you must use this guide, give
    credit where due, and ask for permission to use. You've been warned.
    We all know about Squaresoft, and the legacy of RPG classics they've been
    creating. And buried deep under its RPG legacy is SaGa Frontier 2. I could have
    written a game script or plot analysis guide for any other RPG classic, such as
    Final Fantasy VII, Crono Trigger, Secret of Mana, or even Super Mario RPG. So
    why SaGa Frontier 2? For one, its dialogue can be humorous. But more
    importantly, you have to play the game over to read the dialogue over again to
    understand it. And having a game script would be a lot easier, considering that
    SaGa Frontier 2 isn't easy to win. But if you don't understand the dialogue the
    first time, does that mean it's bad? Of course not. By providing readers with a
    game script guide, I save many frustrated gamers of having to play the
    scenarios over again. Above the difficult dialogue, I've also included a plot
    analysis, since the storyline of SaGa Frontier 2 is rather ambiguous, and
    leaves plenty of room for thought and interpretation. Much like history itself.
    So keep reading, and enjoy.

    1) Updates
    02.15.05 Scripted most of the Gustave scenarios up to Anima Faith Fiasco, and
    several of Wil's scenarios.
    02.16.05 Scripted more of Wil's scenarios, up to some of Rich's, but there's a
    problem with my Playstation, so please be patient.
    02.17.05 Nevermind, I've fixed the problem, and I'm back on track. Continued
    scripting, and now finished Rich's scenarios, Conquest of Wide and Gustave &
    the Pirates.
    05.14.05 Scripts for Wil's and Ginny's scenarios completed, as well as
    Gustave's scenarios (where you just watch), including Battle of South Moundtop
    (Yes! I beat it again! I hope I don't have to do that again...), except for the
    Last Battle.
    05.15.05 The entire script is finally completed. At least I think it is. It's
    still not in the right order yet, but once I get it in the right order, I think
    I'll know for sure if I'm missing any scenarios. I've beaten the Last Battle
    again, and I'm hoping not to have to do it again, not because it was hard, but
    because it was very, very long...I've also decided we don't need Summary under
    plot analysis because it will probably just read the game out instead, so I'll
    just leave it at Chronicle. Plot Analysis also has some completed sections now.
    05.16.05 There were some bits from the script that were missing, and I think 
    I've fixed those now. I've also formatted the guide so that it will fit in 79
    characters per line, and the remaining plot analysis sections are now complete.
    06.25.05 Decided I need a credits section anyways.
    2) Notes
    Just so people don't yell at me for putting or not putting in certain things,
    I'll make it clear here. I haven't, and don't intend to script every single
    dialogue in the game. It's tedious of course, but some of it isn't necessary.
    Just talking to the lady in Westia, who only says she's waiting for her laundry
    to dry doesn't really add much to the plot or the setting of the story. So I'm
    only going to include script that is required to pass each scenario, and
    perhaps scripts for other people that do contribute to the plot or setting. 
    Also note that I use a particular format, that looks somewhat like Shakespeare 
    plays, but only what I remember of them. However, this is how I use them:
    enter (character), (character)
    This means that the following characters are entering the screen on your TV, or
    are already on the screen when it loads. If you see two consecutive "enter
    (character)", it means that the first one introduces the characters already on
    the screen, and the second "enter" means that the character is entering the
    exit (character), (character)
    The following characters are leaving the screen. This does not include deaths,
    or other events described in parentheses. "exit (character)" may appear before
    "exeunt", but this just means that that character is leaving the screen before
    "exeunt" (see below).
    Note also: Characters' names are capitalized, but general roles (eg, soldier,
    messenger, lady, man, etc.) are not when they are used in "enter" and "exit".
    The only time I capitalize them is when they are speaking.
    The scene ends, and the screen fades and loads another one.
    Event that happens in parentheses. This may contribute to the plot or setting,
    so I've just decided to include them.
    (line break)
    You'll notice that my script doesn't follow the line format in the dialogues in
    the game. My script goes continuously to the end of the screen, and then onto
    the next line. However, I use line breaks when there is a considerable pause
    between a character's dialogue, where that same character resumes talking after
    the pause or event (that I decide not to note), or even when the character
    changes from a thought to talking, and similarily, from talking to a thought.
    This version of the game script is unedited, and is as close to the dialogue in
    the game as much as possible. So if there's a grammatical or spelling error in
    the game, it will likely appear like that here as well. Also, my guide is only
    meant for people who have already played the game, since this does contain
    spoilers, and I don't note down all the events that are not part of speech 
    This is because if you were to read such a script guide, then you would be
    reading the game, instead of playing it. I assume that the reader has already
    played the game, and is reading this script to research on plot analysis, or to
    look for a particular scenario in which a character says something.
    3) Game Script
    1220 Gustave Born
    (battle ensues)
    Soldier: Mow them down!
    (another battle ensues)
    Soldier: H-Hold your ground!
    (and yet another)
    Soldier: Fight to the end!
    Opposing soldier: Charge!
    (end of battle)
    (soldiers cheering)
    Gustave XII: Good! Pursue the Marquis of Otto's army at once!
    Messenger: Your Majesty! Her Highness Sophie has safely given birth!!
    Gustave XII: Was it a boy or a girl?
    Messenger: He is a very healthy heir, Your Majesty! 
    Gustave XII: Good work, Sophie!!  
    The pursuit is cancelled. We're returning to Thermes. Marquis of Otto, be
    grateful that my son was born! 
    (cheering ensues) 
    Soldiers: Long live, King Gustave!! 
    Hurrah, an heir is born!! 
    1227 Gustave Exiled 
    Thermes Castle 
    Narrator: Today is the day Gustave attempts the Firebrand Ceremony. The castle
    is turned upside down with preparations for the ceremony and party. 
    Firebrand, the ancestral Quell of the Eugene family. As its name suggests, it
    responds to the Anima of fire. Upon reaching seven years of age, the prince
    undergoes a ceremony to test whether he is worthy to wield Firebrand and become
    heir to the throne. 
    Gustave XII: What's wrong!? Concentrate! Focus your Anima into the sword!  
    How could this be!? 
    exit, Gustave XII 
    enter Gustave XII, Sophie 
    Gustave XII: That is not our child. I want you to forget about it. 
    Sophie: It? Are you speaking of Gustave? You've cared for him so much. Only the
    ceremony did not go well.  
    Gustave XII: Only...ONLY!? Anima wasn't even drawn from him when he touched the
    Firebrand. Common trees, grass, and even rocks have Anima. He is less than a
    rock. I had high hopes for him. That is why I feel so betrayed. It is
    unforgivable. It is not permissible for a member of the royal family not to 
    have Anima. He will be banished. 
    Sophie: Even though he may not have the power of the Anima, Gustave is still a
    living being. I have given birth to him, I have nursed him, and I have raised
    him. He may only be an heir to you, but to me, he is the son to whom I have
    given life. I cannot just throw him away.  
    Gustave XII: Then...you too, will leave with that refuse!! 
    Enter Gustave, Sophie 
    Sophie: Let us go. 
    Enter Gustave 
    Gustave (crying): Mama, mama... 
    Enter Gustave, Sophie 
    Citizen (from window): You good-for-nothing!!  
    Enter Gustave, Sophie, Tenant 
    Tenant: Forgive me, Your Highness. This is the best house in this area.  
    Sophie: Thank you. I know you've done all you could.  
    exit Tenant 
    Sophie: What should we do now...? 
    1227 Departure from Homeland 
    Thermes Castle 
    Enter Gustave XII, four nobles 
    Gustave XII: That will be all for today. Dismissed. 
    exit nobles 
    enter Cielmer 
    Cielmer: Your Majesty, may I have permission to speak? 
    Gustave XII: Oh, it's you, Cielmer. What is it that brings you here? 
    Cielmer: As the young master's tutor, it is my responsibility that this has 
    come to be. Therefore, I no longer have the right to remain. Please grant me
    permission to leave the palace.  
    Gustave XII: Very well, you have my permission. Thank you for your services 
    over the past four years.  
    Cielmer, tell me one last thing...Why didn't you tell me that he didn't have 
    any Anima?  
    Cielmer: I did not know, myself. I had sensed that he possessed very strong
    Anima within him...I feel that fate has had a hand in the appearance of such a
    figure in the royal family.  
    exit Cielmer 
    Gustave XII: Fate, eh...I only wished for a son that could have formally 
    acceded to the throne. 
    Enter Gustave, Sophie 
    Gustave: Dear mother, I do not wish to be here. 
    Sophie: It can't be helped, Gustave. It would be best if we could return to
    Nohl, but His Majesty most likely will not allow that. It is pitiful to have to
    make you stay in such a place, but... 
    Enter Cielmer 
    Cielmer: Your Highness, Young Master. 
    Gustave: Master Cielmer! 
    Sophie: Sir Cielmer! Why have you come here? 
    Cielmer: His Highness has granted me permission to leave, and I will be heading
    back to Gruegel. Therefore, I came to see if I might escort Your Highness to
    Sophie: But I do not believe that His Majesty will allow us to leave... 
    Cielmer: Waiting here will most likely not change His Majesty's mind. Even
    Sophie: Oh no! That can't be... 
    Cielmer: At Gruegel, it is best that you seek asylum from King Sui of Na. 
    Sophie: I understand. I have always left matters regarding Gustave to your
    discretion. I shall heed your words. 
    Thermes Night 
    Enter soldier, Gustave, Sophie, Cielmer 
    (Cielmer, Sophie and Gustave steal a boat) 
    Soldier: Stop that boat!! 
    (Cielmer puts a sleep spell on the soldier) 
    exit Cielmer, Gustave and Sophie 
    Narrator: It will be another 20 years before Gustave will see this castle 
    1232 Gustave 12 Years Old 
    Gruegel, Southern Continent, the capital of Na 
    Narrator: After Gustave and Sophie transferred here, they were given a mansion
    by King Sui of Na. Five years have passed. Gustave has become infamous as a
    violent child. The fact that he is ungifted, and that he is an outcast, has
    twisted his mind as the years passed. His peculiar background as a member of 
    the royalty of the Eastern Continent causes his peers to avoid him, taking away 
    the thing most important to a young boy...friends. Gustave has only one 
    follower, a boy named Flynn. Flynn patiently endures even Gustave's most 
    violent acts, and never leaves his side. For he, too, cannot use any spells.  
    Enter Gustave, Flynn 
    (Gustave kicking flowers and throwing stones at birds) 
    Gustave: Flynn, come on! You, too! 
    Enter Sophie 
    Sophie: What are you doing!? 
    Being cruel to defenseless weaker people is shameful. 
    Gustave: So what!? I'm just a worthless piece of trash who has no Anima or
    (Sophie slaps Gustave) 
    Sophie: Gustave, look! Is it the power of spells that makes flowers and trees
    blossom? Are birds able to fly because they can use spells? Even though you
    can't use spells, you are still human. You are human, Gustave!! 
    enter Gustave, Flynn 
    Gustave: Ah man, it's so irritating! In the first place, it's all your fault. 
    If my mother was coming, you should have told me that! 
    (beats up Flynn) 
    enter Leslie, Leslie's Friend 
    Leslie's Friend: Oh no, it's Gustave. Let's just ignore him and keep going,
    Leslie (walking between Flynn and Gustave): Just cut that out, Gustave! 
    Gustave: Why you...! 
    Leslie: Are you crying, Gustave? 
    (Gustave runs) 
    exit Gustave 
    Leslie: You have to stand up for yourself, too. Besides, why are you following
    him around, anyway? 
    Flynn: Because I can't use any spells......Sir Gus is very scary, but Sir Gus 
    is the only one...the only one who understands me...Sir Gus!! 
    exit Flynn 
    Leslie: Is it that hard, to be unable to use spells...? 
    enter Gustave, Flynn 
    (Flynn walking up to Gustave) 
    Flynn: Sir Gus, I got some berries for you. 
    What's wrong, Sir Gus? It's okay, no one saw me. C'mon, Sir Gus, let's eat. 
    1233 Gustave & the Blacksmith 
    Narrator: When Gustave turns 13, the King of Na grants him territory in the
    vicinity of Jade. Using this as an opportunity, Sophie takes Gustave with her
    and moves to Jade. Many speculate that the move is meant to prevent Gustave 
    from being treated as a vassal of King Sui, and as an excuse to stay away from 
    the king, who has been repeatedly approaching Sophie. 
    Blacksmith: Welcome, young master. Ye come here pretty often. Is a blacksmith
    that interestin' to ye? 
    Gustave: Uh huh. There were no smiths in Thermes, and there weren't that many 
    in Gruegel, either. This is the first time I got to see one so close.  
    Blacksmith: Ye make it sound like I'm some kind of circus show. 
    Gustave: What are you making? 
    Blacksmith: I'm makin' a knife out of steel. For me, it's easier to use a steel
    knife occasionally, since ye don't have to use any Spell Arts when usin' one. 
    My ol' lady, on the other hand, is good at usin' the spells on a stone kitchen
    knife, so she'll never be usin' a steel blade.  
    Gustave: You think we can make a sword out of steel?  
    Blacksmith: That'd be hard, young master. I hear the ancient blacksmiths made
    blades out of steel, but for me, a kitchen knife is the best I can do. Besides,
    the soldiers only use stone or wood swords, nowadays.  
    Gustave: Teach me how to do it. I want to make a steel sword. 
    Blacksmith: I don't mind teachin', but yeh're gonna have to be serious about 
    it. I am the master, and you are my apprentice. I will be very strict, is that
    Gustave: Yeah. 
    Blacksmith: That is not how ye answer yer master! 
    Gustave: Yes, sir! 
    Gustave, 14 years old 
    Blacksmith: Gustave, what made ye get the idea of forging a steel sword anyway? 
    Gustave: I cannot use Spell Arts. I need to find another way to build up my
    Gustave, 15 years old 
    Blacksmith: Yeh've forged a magnificent sword. 
    Gustave: This one's only practice. The real sword I intend to forge will be
    three times longer. 
    Blacksmith: Can there really be a sword as monstrous as that in this world? 
    Gustave: Yes. I can see that sword...Somewhere out there... 
    1235 Gustave 15 Years Old 
    Enter Gustave, Flynn 
    Flynn: Sir Gus!! 
    Gustave: We're going, Flynn! 
    (Flynn spinning around) 
    exit Gustave 
    Flynn: Wait, Sir Gus!! 
    enter lady, old lady, Kelvin 
    Lady: My, my, Sir Kelvin. What business would you have with our town? 
    Kelvin: We've received information that bandits are in the eastern caves.
    Tomorrow morning, soldiers will be sent from the castle to investigate. Please
    notify everyone to stay away from the caves.  
    Lady: I understand. Thank you for your trouble.  
    Kelvin: Well, I must hurry along to the next town. 
    Lady: Oh, please wait. Come to think of it, I believe Sir Gustave was headed 
    for the caves.  
    Kelvin: I see. I'll look after Gustave. 
    That Gustave again... 
    exit Kelvin 
    Caverns of Jade 
    enter Gustave 
    Gustave: Flynn! Hurry up and come over!! 
    enter Flynn 
    Flynn: Sir Gus, I'm scared. Aren't there monsters here? 
    Gustave: That's why we came. I've trained extensively for this. Now it's time
    for the real thing. 
    Flynn: Can I wait here? 
    Gustave: Fool! You're coming with me. 
    enter Kelvin 
    Narrator: Meanwhile, Kelvin... 
    (upon entering a cave, battle with dino leeches ensues) 
    Kelvin: That Gustave... 
    enter Gustave 
    Gustave: You call me? 
    (end of battle) 
    Gustave: Oh, it's you, Kelvin. What're you doing here? 
    Kelvin: What!? What am I doing here!? I came to look for you. There are bandits
    in here, you know.  
    Gustave: Oh, so they were bandits. 
    Kelvin: You encountered them? 
    Gustave: Flynn got captured. 
    Kelvin: You brought him along too!? So you just ran away while Flynn got
    captured? Can't you do anything right? Let's go notify father. 
    Gustave: Wait! I will save Flynn. He's one of my kind. I don't want help from
    Sir Thomas.  
    Kelvin: What are you talking about? You actually think you can save him
    Gustave: I'm going to jump into the midst of them, so I'll need your spell
    Kelvin: Why do I have to help you?  
    Gustave: You're not helping me. You're helping Flynn. Please, Kelvin.  
    Kelvin: As always, your plan is too reckless. However, I am a noble man, and
    thus it is my duty to help those in need. I will help Flynn. But Gustave, are
    you going to be okay with a weapon like that?  
    Gustave: I can't use Spell Arts, so this sharp blade is the only thing I can
    depend on. Let's go. 
    enter bandits, bandit leader, Flynn, Gustave, Kelvin 
    (Gustave and Kelvin in hiding) 
    Bandit 1: Man, this cave stinks of 'shrooms. 
    Bandit 2: I can't stop sneezing. Maybe I should have joined the scouting party. 
    Bandit 3: Wonder if they'll find anything good? 
    Bandit Leader: Of course. We aren't going to leave with just this useless kid.
    We need a better catch than him.  
    Bandit 3: Y-Yes, I agree.  
    (Gustave goes to free Flynn) 
    Bandit Leader: Huh? Who is that boy? 
    Bandit 2: What're you trying to do to our catch? 
    (Gustave brandishes the Trial Dagger) 
    Bandit Leader: What's that? A steel sword!? 
    Bandit 3: You're gonna fight us with something like that? 
    Bandit 2: Interesting. Let me take him on. 
    (battle ensues) 
    (Gustave defeats the bandit) 
    Bandit 2: Ouch! ouch! ouch!  
    Bandit 3: What are you doing!?  
    Bandit Leader: I've never seen anyone fight without Spell Arts. You're either
    stupid or ungifted, eh? 
    Gustave: Don't call me ungifted!! 
    Bandit Leader: Hah, you're actually getting mad. Such a child! Boys, don't show
    him any mercy!  
    Bandit 3: Four on one. It's over, kid! 
    (Kelvin steps out) 
    Kelvin: Bandits! Are you aware that you're trespassing upon the property of the
    count of Jade? I will punish you in the name of my father! 
    Flynn: Kelvin!! 
    Bandit Leader: My, my, what a spunky one. Don't tell me you're the son of the
    count? Don't  kill him. We can get ransom money for this one.  
    Bandit 1: Absolutely!! 
    (battle ensues) 
    Bandit Leader: Argh! Enough! You good-for-nothings!! We're taking off! 
    (end of battle) 
    Bandit Leader: What's with this brat!? He can't use spells, and spells don't
    work on him... 
    Bandit 3: B-Boss!! We have no use for an ungifted kid. Let's get out of here. 
    Kelvin: Are you okay, Flynn? 
    Flynn: Uh huh. Thanks, Kelvin. Thanks, Sir Gus. 
    Gustave: Your clumsiness got you into this mess! 
    Kelvin: Don't say that. They're just bandits looking to kidnap kids with the
    power to use Spell Arts. But I guess they totally fouled that up when they went
    after you two. 
    Gustave: Well excuuuse me for being ungifted! Let's go home, Flynn. 
    Flynn: Wait for me, Sir Gus! 
    exit Gustave and Flynn 
    Kelvin: Stubborn kid! 
    1235 Wil's Departure 
    Wil: Well, Aunty Nina, Uncle Paul. I'm off. 
    exit Wil 
    Nina: Don't come home until you find a Quell. 
    Westia, A town where the Quell-seekers gather 
    enter Narcisse, bartender 
    enter Wil 
    enter Cordelia 
    Cordelia: Ah, shucks. I'm too late. They've already left. 
    Bartender: Better luck next time, little lady. The last party just left a 
    little while ago. 
    Cordelia: Maybe I can still catch up with them. 
    Bartender: No, no, don't waste your energy. They don't usually add any more
    members to the party once they've departed. It brings up unnecessary dispute
    over the division of loot. You're still a fledgling, aren't you? 
    Cordelia: Don't call me that! I have confidence in my capability as an
    adventurer. I just lack experience. 
    Bartender: Hahaha, all you youngsters say the same thing. Well, just be patient 
    and do your best. You'll get used to it. 
    Cordelia: I've been hearing all along that it was a major expedition. Oh well,
    what should I do now? 
    Wil: Hey? 
    Cordelia: Oh, what is it? Did you miss the expedition too? 
    Wil: Uh no, it's not that. I am Wil. I've come here to look for my first job as
    a digger. 
    Cordelia: So, you're someone who digs for Quells. I'm Cordelia, a sentry to
    protect diggers like you. Nice to meet you, Wil. 
    Wil: Nice to meet you, Cordelia. 
    Go on an expedition with her 
    How about it, would you like to join my expedition? 
    Cordelia: Okay, let's do it. But where are we going? 
    Wil: It'll be our first expedition, so I think it'd be good to gain experience
    at the Ruins of Hahn. I have a hunch that we might find something there. 
    You didn't join the last expedition? 
    Narcisse: Did you think everyone who comes to this tavern is looking to join a
    Quell expedition? 
    Wil: You're right. Excuse me for my assumptions. My name is Wil. I'm a novice
    Narcisse: I am Narcisse, a spell caster. I came here to join a Quell 
    But... the leader of the party was someone I didn't get along with, so I quit. 
    Wil: Oh, so you did come to search for Quells. Then would you be willing to 
    come with me? I would gladly have you join me, since you seem to have a lot of
    Narcisse: It's not SEEM. I AM experienced. I will join you if my share is half
    of the spoils. The normal rate is sixty-forty with the digger taking the larger 
    share, but since you're a novice, I'll take a little extra to share my
    Wil: Please join our party 
    Narcisse: Leave it to me. 
    Is that girl with us, too? I alone would've been sufficient for the task. 
    Cordelia: What a nasty guy!! 
    Hahn, Ruins of the ancient Imperial capital 
    Wil: A Bandit!? 
    Tyler: I'm Tyler. I've come here to look for treasure. What about you? 
    Wil: Oh, you're one of us. I'm Wil. I'm a new digger. I thought you were a
    bandit. Thank goodness you aren't. 
    Tyler: There are more monsters down there than I expected. How about it? You
    want to work together? 
    Wil: Sure. Let's do that. 
    enter Bartender 
    enter Wil, Narcisse, Tyler, Cordelia 
    Wil: Now that I've excavated a Quell, I plan to go back home temporarily. Let's
    disband here. 
    Cordelia: Oh, did poor Wil get homesick for his mama? 
    Wil: My parents died when I was still little. I want to report my progress back
    to my aunt and uncle, who raised me. 
    Cordelia: I-I'm so sorry Wil... I didn't know. I've said such a terrible thing. 
    Wil: Don't worry about it, Cody. Sir Narcisse, thanks for your support. 
    Narcisse: I've got my share, so I'm done with you. Hurry up and go home. 
    Wil: I'll be back soon. I hope you'll join me again. 
    Narcisse: Tch! Oh well, fine. At least it's better than joining Alexei's party. 
    Wil: Alexei!? Is that Alexei Sergein that you're talking about? 
    Cordelia: Yes, that's him. He's a pretty big-name digger in this area. Although
    he's not that popular among the people. 
    Narcisse: What about Alexei? 
    Wil: Uh, it's nothing. Well, I'll be on my way now. See you all again soon!

    enter Wil 
    Wil: I'm home!! 
    Nina: Wil!! You're back already!? You found a Quell, didn't you? 
    Wil: Here. 
    Nina: Good, that's our boy. 
    Wil: Aunty, you know about Alexei Sergein, right? 
    Nina: Yes... What about Alexei? 
    Wil: He was in Westia... I mean... I heard he was there. I'm going back to
    Westia now to meet Alexei. 
    Nina: What are you going to do once you see him? 
    Wil: I want to ask him about my father and mother. And about that Egg-shaped
    Nina: Wil, who in the world told you about that? Was it... Dear!! 
    enter Paul 
    Paul: Oh, sorry, sorry. Wil asked me directly, so I let it slip. Wil is a big
    boy now; it's about time we told him, right? 
    Nina: I told you that I would tell him when the time comes, you fool. Oh well,
    what's done is done. So how much did you tell him, dear? 
    Wil: All I've heard is that, on that day, Alexei had come visiting, and, a
    little while later, Alexei and the Quell had vanished. After that... 
    Nina: Wil, you don't have to remember. Wil!! 
    Wil, pull yourself together! 
    Wil: I'm alright, Aunty. I can't remember for sure. That's why I need to see
    Nina: No way. At least, not just yet. Before we meet Alexei, there are a couple
    of things we need to make clear. Your father and the three Sergein brothers 
    left for the desert together. Only my brother and Alexei returned. And that 
    Egg...I've always wondered what exactly happened in that desert. Since then, I 
    decided to wait until you came of age so we could explore that desert together. 
    Paul: Whoa, whoa... What are you going to do about me? 
    Nina: Dear, look after the house while we're gone. You're not an adventurer, so
    it's best to stay put. 
    Wil: Are you sure you want to go, Aunty? 
    Nina: I haven't aged enough to be worried about by a fledgling like you. Now, 
    let's get prepared for the journey. 
    It's been a while since I went on an adventure. I'm just itching excitement. 
    Westia City 
    Cordelia: Wil! You've come back!! I thought I wouldn't be able to see you for a
    while. I'm glad to see you. 
    Wil: We'll be heading for the Southern Continent soon. First, we'll head to
    Gruegel, and then start the trek from there. 
    Cordelia: All the way to Gruegel... I've heard stories, but I've never been
    there myself. But since you, the digger, are going, I'm going to have to go 
    with you as your sentry. 
    Wil: Thank you, Cordelia. I'm counting on you. 
    Narcisse: Oh, it's you again. 
    Wil: Sir Narcisse, do you know anything about the great desert? 
    Narcisse: What would a digger want in the Southern Continent? There are no
    Quells there. 
    Wil: I want to go to the Desert Megalith. 
    Narcisse: You're talking about that legend, huh? 
    Wil: It's not a legend. My father has been there. I have to go see for myself,
    what my father saw. 
    Narcisse: The Desert Megalith... If you really want me to, I guess I can lend
    you a hand. 
    Wil: Yes! Please! I would appreciate your company! 
    Narcisse: You don't hesitate, do you, Wil? 
    Tyler: Yo, Wil. 
    Wil: Hello, Tyler. We're going to be heading towards Gruegel on the Southern
    Continent. Once there, I'm planning on going into the desert. 
    Tyler: May I come along with you? 
    Wil: Of course, please. 
    Bartender: During the time of the ancient empire, when this land still
    flourished with the powers of the Spell Arts, I hear that the use of Spell Arts 
    had not yet spread to the Southern Continent. 
    Gruegel, Southern Continent, the capital of Na 
    enter Clerk, old man, customer 
    enter Wil 
    Clerk: Come on, order somethin'. 
    Wil: Ask about the Grand Desert 
    Clerk: It's a barren land, just as the name suggests. You won't find anything
    but rocks and sand, even if you spend your entire life there. 
    Wil: Ask about the Megalith 
    Clerk: Megalith... You're talking about that mysterious ruin out in the desert?
    The desert is vast, and I don't doubt that anything could be there, but there's 
    no one that really desires to go to that place. To be honest, I don't really
    know what's out there. 
    Vogelang, An isolated city surrounded by desert 
    enter citizens, merchant, Wil 
    Citizen 1: Just about the time they had been all but forgotten, they returned,
    exhausted. Then, over the next few days, they argued feverishly. In reality, it
    was only the gentleman and the eldest brother arguing. The other two were just
    adding frivolous comments, and didn't really know what was going on. After 
    that, the 3 brothers made their preparations and once again headed out for the 
    desert, without the gentleman. 
    Merchant: From the looks of it, you're not a merchant, are you? There was a
    group of four like you  who came to this town about fifteen years ago. I
    remember it well. They were asking about the desert and some Megalith, along
    with various other details. But these were places we didn't know. They just
    resupplied and took off into the desert. 
    Citizen 2: Even after the gentleman parted with his three comrades, he stayed 
    in this town as if to wait for them. As he was just about to give up, the 
    brothers returned...with the exception of the youngest one. The large younger 
    brother had lost his left hand at his wrist, and the oldest had been quite 
    shaken up by something. Anyway, they were a mess. The younger brother carried 
    an egg-like object in his remaining hand. They were so beat up, I don't think 
    many noticed the egg. 
    Citizen 3: I was really young, but I remember it well. Who could forget an 
    Anima of that magnitude? 
    enter bartender, customers 
    Customer 1: The gentleman picked up the egg and said, "This is not something 
    you scum can handle!" Usually, you wouldn't call your own party members scum. 
    Were they fighting? 
    Customer 2: When the party returned from the desert, I tried to heal the 
    wounded brother, but as soon as I neared him, he went into a rampage. Without 
    any Tools, he started firing off spells all over the place, putting the 
    townspeople in danger. It was like a madhouse. I got this scar from that 
    incident. I got away with just a scar, but some of us were killed there... 
    Customer 3: In the midst of the commotion, a gentleman realized that the 
    younger Sergein brother was carrying an egg, and shouted, "His Anima was stolen 
    by that Quell!" He then gathered the steel tools from the town and approached 
    the brother, and while defending himself against spells, knocked the egg out of 
    the younger brother's hands. Right as the egg fell, the younger brother let out 
    a primal scream and released all of his Anima, dying as if from an explosion. I
    still can't figure out what all of that was... 
    Customer 4: After the incident, he vanished from the town, leaving even his
    baggage behind. The eldest of the brothers was caught and prosecuted for the
    disturbance, but he also disappeared after breaking out of jail. That's the end
    of the story. 
    Bartender: Here, this is the guest book from then. You can ask me anything. I
    might be able to answer, if I remember. 
    Wil: Henry Knights 
    Bartender: He was a tall, good-natured gentleman. Unlike the other three, he 
    was very amiable, and the townspeople seemed to get along with him. 
    So you're the son of that gentleman from long ago? Hmm, is that true? Oh, no
    matter. Would you like to read the letter that he left behind? 
    Wil: Yes, please let me see it. 
    Letter: To the desert. Discovered ruins. It is definitely the Megalith. The
    interior is a grotesque sight. Discovered a lead box. Could not handle 
    situation with our current equipment, decided to head back temporarily. A 
    Megalith in a Southern Continent desert. And a lead box. It's all unnatural. 
    Refuse to accompany any further.  
    Wil: Father... Okay, let's go to the Megalith! 
    Alexei Sergein 
    Bartender: He was the eldest of the three brothers and was always resistant to
    Henry. Although he was acting like a tyrant, he was found hiding in a corner
    when his brother went out of control. Maybe he was really just a coward? 
    Wil: Nicholai Sergein 
    Bartender: This one was the middle brother. A slow-witted man with a large
    build. He didn't look like the type that would be good at using spells. 
    Wil: Peter Sergein 
    Bartender: The youngest of the brothers, and although his build was small, his
    arrogance was as great as his older brother Alexei. The townspeople hated him.
    He never made it back from the desert. I just wonder what happened out there. 
    Wil: (return the guest book) 
    Bartender: If you want to read it again, come back whenever you like.

    enter Cordelia, Nina, Wil, Cordelia, Narcisse, Tyler 
    Narcisse: What a mess. 
    Nina: That's unusual. Megaliths are usually much more simpler. 
    Cordelia: I'm beginning to feel sick. Let's hurry up and go home. 
    Wil: The Egg was probably inside this lead box. 
    Narcisse: I can't sense any Anima here. Are you sure this is a Megalith? 
    Nina: Who knows? All I know is, we came all the way here for nothing. I guess
    we'll just have to hear from Alexei himself.

    Flynn: Sir Gus, is it really okay for someone like me to come along? 
    Gustave: Don't worry. Sir Thomas is a kind and understanding person. He won't
    say anything if we're just munching on the food. 
    Flynn: Everyone's so well dressed. I'm a little embarrassed. 
    Gustave: It's the guests' problem for being overdressed. There's no need to be
    Anyway, there are a lot of cute girls. Why don't you go munch on stuff over
    Hey there, what's your name? 
    Leslie: Welcome to the party. Please help yourself to the food...Gustave? 
    Gustave: ? Oh, it's you, Leslie. What're you doing here? 
    Leslie: I'm studying court etiquette at the Count of Jade's residence. 
    Gustave: Court etiquette? You? Hahaha! Sir Thomas and Kelvin sure must have
    their hands full.  
    Leslie: What are you laughing about? Sir Thomas is always complementing me. 
    What about you? You're probably just up to no good. 
    Gustave: I'm not such a kid anymore. Hey, Leslie, introduce me to that cute 
    girl over there.  
    Leslie: Why me!? 
    enter Kelvin 
    Kelvin: Are those two acquaintances?  
    Flynn: Oh, Kelvin. Yeah, they know each other from Gruegel.  
    Kelvin: I see. Well, Leslie is from the distinguished Bering family of Gruegel. 
    I'm wondering, Flynn: does Gustave like Leslie? 
    Flynn: What!? They were always fighting, but... 
    Kelvin: Hmph, Gustave's still such a kid.  
    Flynn: ...Uh, Kelvin. Lately, you've begun to sound like Sir Gus. 
    Kelvin: Ergh...My father warned me of the same thing just this morning...It's
    because I've been hanging around you two for far too long. My dignity as a 
    noble is... 
    Leslie: Ohhh, don't eat with your hands. You're so vulgar. 
    Gustave: It tastes the best if you eat it like this. You're missing out.  
    1238 Infiltrate! Alexei Gang 
    Wil: That's why I said that I should go. 
    Nina: Alexei knows my face, so I can't join you. But I'm not letting you go by 
    (After choosing a party member) 
    Nina: Wil, be extremely careful around Alexei. He's clever, so he might already 
    know about your existence. 
    Wil: This chilling feeling...I've felt it somewhere before... 
    Wil: Are you Alexei? 
    Alexei's Hench: What do you want? 
    Wil: I would like to join your Quell digging expedition. 
    Other Henches: Hehehehe 
    Wil: My name is Wil. 
    Alexei's Hench: Tell those kinda things to Alexei himself. 
    Other Henches: Hahahaha! 
    Alexei: Kid, I am Alexei. 
    Wil: I am... 
    Alexei: I already heard that. Well let's see, I'll let you work as my errand-
    Tyler/Cordelia/Narcisse: Are you really letting that kid join us? He's gonna 
    decrease our share. 
    Alexei: Then you're gonna run my errands for me, huh!? 
    Okay, let's get ready to go! 
    Wil: Where are we going? 
    Alexei: Follow us and you'll find out. 
    City of Night 
    Alexei: That geezer with the Quell talisman has to live somewhere around 
    Go find it! 
    Boy, you're not going anywhere! 
    Don't you have something you want to talk to me about, Knights? 
    Wil: You know! 
    Alexei: Yeah. I knew you were Henry's kid the moment I saw you. 
    Wil: Alexei Sergein, you murdered my parents and stole the Egg! 
    Alexei: Hey, hey, where'd you hear that? My brothers and I were the ones who 
    found the Egg in the first place. My little brothers died for this. Henry was 
    the one who took it from us. 
    Wil: My father would not have done that! 
    Alexei: You were just a little kid. How would you know? Anyway, I wasn't the 
    one who killed your father. It was your mother. 
    Wil: That's ridiculous. Why would mother kill father? 
    Alexei: You don't remember? Didn't you see Catherine stab Henry? 
    Wil: That's not true. That's not true...Not true... 
    Alexei: Do you remember now? ...Conveniently forgetting the details. Well it 
    doesn't matter to me anyways. Just remember this: stay out of my way from now 
    on. Next time, I won't be so nice. 
    (Exit Alexei) 
    (Enter Nina) 
    Nina: Wil, Wil! What's wrong? Get a hold of yourself, Wil! 
    Wil: Mother...Why... 
    Nina: What did Alexei say to you, Wil? 
    It's no use. You need some rest. 
    I certainly hope Tyler/Cordelia/Narcisse is doing well... 
    (Enter Tyler/Cordelia/Narcisse) 
    Informer: What do you want to know? 
    T/C/N: About the old man with the Quell 
    Informer: About Quells, eh? There was an old man like that. The name was Kisk. 
    I hear he used to frequent the tavern a lot. 
    T/C/N: About you 
    Informer: Me? I sell information. Information is money. Information is so 
    important that it can be a deciding factor of whether you live or die tomorrow. 
    Old Man: Water will stagnate if there is no current. You could say this city's 
    like a puddle of standing water. 
    (After entering empty house) 
    T/C/N: Hmm, no one's there. 
    (Cat walks across the roof) 
    Citizen: ...Do you know about the stairs leading to the water reservoir? The 
    old man there knows quite a few things. 
    Elder: An old man with a talisman? You talking about Kisk? I don't know where 
    he is. Even if I knew, I'm not obligated to tell you. 
    Customer: An old man with a Quell talisman? Oh, you're talking about old man 
    Kisk. Come to think of it, I haven't seen him lately.  
    Hey, bartender! You know what happened to old man Kisk?  
    Bartender: Don't know. He hasn't come by lately. Maybe he left town.  
    Customer: Yeah, maybe. When was the last time we saw him?  
    Bartender: I wonder when... 
    Hey, when was the last time the old man came by? 
    Bar Hostess: Hmmm...Maybe about three months ago? Anyway, it was a long time 
    Bartender: If you're so concerned, why don't you stop by his home? Go outside, 
    take the east stairs to the bottom, Kisk's house is to your left. It's where 
    that informer has been hanging out lately.  
    T/C/N: I'll do that. 
    (Exit T/C/N) 
    Customer: You think it was one of those people looking to get the talisman? 
    Bartender: I'm pretty sure.  
    Customer: Tsk...Who do they think they are? 
    Bartender: Nah, don't worry. They'll have no choice but to give up when they 
    see his house. 
    (Enter T/C/N) 
    (Kisk's House. T/C/N knocking loudly on the door) 
    (Enter woman) 
    Woman: Are you an acquaintance of Kisk? 
    T/C/N: Well, yeah. 
    Woman: Oh, okay...Well, Kisk recently passed away. It was so sudden. Oh, I'm 
    sorry. I'm in a bit of a hurry. Farewell. 
    (exit woman) 
    T/C/N: Dead...? 
    (enter Alexei, T/C/N) 
    Alexei: The geezer kicked the bucket!? Then what about the Quell? 
    T/C/N: I don't know. 
    Alexei: That's not what I want to hear! Go find it! 
    T/C/N: Uhmmm... 
    Alexei: What is it? 
    T/C/N: Inquire about the Egg 
    Alexei: Just by holding this, it feels like your Anima is enhanced. But you 
    have to be careful. If you can't control it properly, you can get your arm 
    blown off, just like my younger brother.  
    (water mill) 
    Girl: I don't know. I don't know. I don't know Kyle. Uh, I don't know him at 
    Informer: What do you want to know? 
    T/C/N: About the Talisman Quell 
    Informer: Many wanted the old man's Quell. If it wasn't buried with him, 
    someone must have it. The most likely people would be his relatives. His home 
    is empty now, and there's no further information on him.  
    T/C/N: About the people here 
    Informer: Well, they're not really close-knit. They're kind of cold to 
    outsiders. Depending on what your intentions are, it might be a better idea to 
    just deceive them.  
    (Kyle's house) 
    Old Lady: Who are you? This is my house. Get out of here!...Wait a minute! Are 
    you the digger who's a friend of Kisk?  
    T/C/N: Nod 
    Old Lady: Really! Oh good! I sent out letters to all his acquaintances, but I 
    haven't heard from any of them yet. I was worried the letters didn't make it. 
    But I'm glad I waited. That child Kyle has become quite a little ruffian since 
    he lost his only relative, Kisk, but he is a gentle and smart child on the 
    inside. That's why I want him to learn from people like you, who have travelled 
    the world. I want him to be like Kisk: a man with a vision. Oh my, I've already 
    written about all that in the letter, haven't I? Oh, about Kyle...He should be 
    returning soon. If it isn't too much trouble, it would be nice of you to meet 
    him on the way here. I'm sure he'd be ecstatic if you did. 
    (Enter Alexei, T/C/N) 
    Alexei: A grandson? Have you found him? 
    T/C/N: No, not yet. 
    Alexei: You idiot! Hurry up and find him! 
    T/C/N: Uhmmm... 
    Alexei: What is it this time? 
    T/C/N: Inquire about Wil 
    Alexei: Henry had a strong Anima. His wife was beautiful. He always looked down 
    on me. On top of all that, he tried to take the Egg away. But I took it right 
    Informer: What do you want to know? 
    T/C/N: About the old man's grandson 
    Informer: It must be his only kin, Kyle. I only know his name. I think the kids 
    will know more of the details.  
    Kid on the roof: I know where Kyle is hiding. That's why I've been here waiting
    for him to come out all this time. But will he be able to hear me yell that
    he's it? 
    Elder: Hey, you're not really an acquaintance of Kisk, are you? 
    T/C/N: Shut up and nod 
    Elder: Yeah...it's like how everyone must lie to protect Kyle and the talisman. 
    You probably also have to lie to fulfil something that needs to be done. It's 
    just going to collect dust as long as it stays here. Just take that talisman 
    with you.  
    Kid in hiding: Kyle's such a cheater. He always hides where all the monsters 
    Bartender: Kisk used to love to drink, but for Kyle, he's still too young. At 
    least I know for sure he isn't here. 
    Customer: Kyle hasn't returned home yet? He usually isn't the type to make 
    others worry.  That's odd. 
    Bar Hostess: What!? Kyle hasn't returned home yet? There's something wrong... 
    Citizen: If you go down the stairs, you'll reach the water reservoir, but what 
    business do you have down there? Well, um, it is an important supply of water 
    for the residents of the city, but...There are monsters in the water pipes.  
    Old Man: The kids always gather around and play. Lately, they've been playing 
    hide and seek, so it's a pain to find them.  
    (water mill) 
    Girl: Hey, hey, what're you doing? Kyle always goes to the scary place from 
    there. It's where the water comes from. They say there are scary monsters 
    there. But it's impossible for a grown-up to get through.  
    Man: If you're looking for Kyle, he went through the hole that goes to the 
    waterway a while ago. You know that opening where all the water pools up? 
    That's the only way for adults to  get in. 
    (water reservoir) 
    Man: This hole has a tunnel connected to the hole Kyle uses. But this hole 
    isn't one you climb down. It's a hole you fall through. I fell in it once 
    before, and couldn't get back out this way. I can't guarantee you'll be able to 
    get back out, but you can get in through here.  
    So how about it? You going in?  
    T/C/N: Nod 
    Man: Alright...I see you've got your own problems, but don't forget to look 
    after Kyle. That's all I have to say.  
    (exeunt through hole) 
    (enter T/C/N, Kyle) 
    T/C/N: Let's leave together. Don't worry. 
    (Enter water reservoir, T/C/N, Alexei, Kyle) 
    Alexei: You've got the kid, right? Good. You will be well rewarded. 
    T/N: The Quell's right here. You've got no business with the kid, right? 
    Alexei: Of course. 
    T/N: Go! 
    (exit Kyle) 
    T/N: This Quells' not that big of a deal. 
    Alexei: I know. It'll do fine.  
    I'm going to the granite quarry. If you value your life, don't follow me.

    the Knights boy. What do you want?  
    Wil: Alexei! I'll never forgive you!! 
    Alexei: What's this sudden outburst? That's why little boys are so troublesome. 
    Don't think I'll let you off so easily after talking to me like that. You are 
    prepared, aren't you?  
    Wil: I shall avenge my father and mother!! 
    Alexei: You? Hah! What a stupid boy. You have no idea the power I possess with 
    the Egg. I'll show you why I have come here!! 
    Wil: Dragons!? 
    Alexei: They are still just fledglings, but they'll do just fine against you.  
    Wil: You're controlling the dragons!? 
    Alexei: This Quell can only be used by normal humans to repel monsters, but in 
    my possession, it can be used to control them. Go now, my dragons! Tear them to 
    (battle ensues. All party members fall in battle, Nina must be in the party) 
    Nina: Don't get so cocky with powers that aren't even yours! 
    (Nina seals dragons with her Anima) 
    (battle with Alexei ensues) 
    Alexei: So you've sealed the power of the Egg with your life...Hey kid, looks 
    like you've managed to live just a little longer. Now, allow me to finish you 
    off personally! 
    Wil: Alexei...I'll kill you if it's the last thing I do! 
    (Alexei falls, exeunt) 
    Wil's House 
    Nina: Wil, Paul and I never had any children of our own. That's why we've 
    always thought of you as our real son.

    So please get well soon, mother.

    I'm going to rest. 
    Paul: Aye, rest well.

    hurry back.  
    Gustave: No way. I have no wish to witness my mother's death.  
    Kelvin: Don't be throwing tantrums like a spoiled child. We're going.  
    Gustave (closes eyes): How am I supposed to face her? I've only been trouble to 
    her. She was exiled because of me. Now she is suffering from illness in a 
    foreign land. She's had nothing but suffering. She is still so young, yet she 
    will soon die a lonesome death. And yet...How...How am I supposed to face my 
    mother? Should I cry, should I smile...Tell me. Tell me what I should do, 
    Kelvin: ...You don't need to think about anything. Go see Madam Sophie. If you 
    feel like crying, then cry. If you want to leave her with a smile, then smile. 
    You've lived this long with just your mother. Are you sure you want to leave 
    Madam Sophie alone? 
    Gustave(opens eyes): Yes. Let's go back. Thank you, Kelvin. 
    Kelvin: Don't worry about it. It's for Madam Sophie. 
    Let's head back immediately.

    the caves for me. 
    Sophie: That's very thoughtful of him...Kelvin is a wonderful friend. 
    Gustave: ...... 
    Sophie: Look at you. You've grown so mature. No wonder, it has been twelve 
    years since we left Thermes. I am so relieved, now.  
    Gustave: No, please mother. Don't leave me alone. 
    Sophie: You have Kelvin and Flynn to keep you company. One cannot live alone, 
    but you are no longer alone, Gustave. Keep a deep respect for your 
    relationships with the people around you. If you do so, then others will 
    respect you.  
    Gustave: ...Alright 
    Sophie: Be kind to Flynn. 
    Gustave: Yes. 
    Sophie: Take good care of Leslie. 
    Gustave: Yes.

    Kelvin: Madam Sophie even treated a boy like me as a nobleman. She was always 
    strict, yet gentle.  
    Flynn: Madam Sophie was even nice to someone like me. My parents have never 
    treated me  as well as she did.

    Marquis of Wide: Hah hah hah. Your stories are fascinating. But I doubt their 
    Gustave: Unfortunately, they are all true.

    next time. 
    Gustave: Gladly. Well, if you will now excuse me. 
    exit Gustave 
    Nebelstern: Your Excellency, I do not think it would be wise for you to trust 
    him so. 
    Marquis of Wide: Why, Nebelstern? I do not have many friends of my own age. 
    Haven't you been the one always asking me to have allies that I can trust? 
    Nebelstern: Although he is an exile, he is the son of King Gustave of Finney. 
    Do not unnderestimate him. 
    Marquis of Wide: Indeed, King Gustave is very shrewd, but he is an unworthy 
    son, who cannot use Spell Arts. He is best suited to be my jester. Hah hah hah.

    Lady 1: Our former lord was lost years ago. Some say the truth is that his 
    brother secretly locked him away, and he was left alone 'til he...It was a very 
    unstable period, so it might not all be just a fairy tale. 
    Lady 2: When my grandma was still a child, I heard the lord of Wide disappeared 
    mysteriously. He was regarded as a wise ruler. All the men searched everywhere, 
    but they couldn't find a trace of him. So the story goes, that the brother of 
    this lord, who was filling in as his substitute, ended up becoming the official 
    enter Gustave, Flynn, Leslie 
    Gustave: So what's the word on General Nebelstern? 
    Flynn: I hear he's a pretty intimidating man. They say he's extremely strict. 
    Leslie: There's not a whisper of scandal attached to his name. He's very 
    disciplined if I may say so. 
    Gustave: Has he made any enemies because of his severity? 
    Leslie: Well, those around him say that he is even more strict with himself, so 
    people accept it. 
    Gustave: So there's nothing we can use against him. Alright, how about Sir 
    Mouton? Let's gather information on him. 
    Flynn: Are we going to be okay, Sir Gus? 
    Gustave: Don't be such a chicken, Flynn. 
    Leslie: This is nothing like the pranks you used to pull as a kid. This is 
    Gustave: Of course I'm serious. I can't just continue to depend on Sir Thomas 
    for aid. 
    Leslie: You've changed, Gustave. 
    enter Gustave, Flynn, Leslie 
    Gustave: So did we find anything on Sir Mouton? 
    Flynn: Mouton is a very good-natured person. He's exempted sick old ladies from 
    taxation, and has even given money to mothers with so many children they could 
    barely make ends meet. 
    Leslie: He's a very dependable person. He's even collected special taxes from 
    merchants and saved the money for emergency situations...obviously for the sake 
    of Wide. 
    Gustave: A good-natured and dependable person. He's very popular among Wide's 
    citizens, I take it. I think we've got something to work with. 
    Leslie: Something? What are you going to do? 
    Gustave: Go to the Marquis of Wide and frame Sir Mouton.  
    Flynn: That's terrible, Sir Gus! 
    Gustave: I didn't ask for your opinion, Flynn. If the Marquis even trusted his 
    staff, this trick of mine wouldn't work. He deserves what he gets.

    Marquis of Wide: Summon Mouton! 
    enter Mouton 
    Mouton: Your bidding? 
    Marquis of Wide: Mouton, I hear you've been making tax exemptions and creating 
    special taxes without consulting me. 
    Mouton: ...Yes 
    Marquis of Wide: Although you are tasked with general political matters, there 
    is an agreement in Wide that you discuss matters of importance with me, the 
    Lord of Wide. 
    Mouton: ...Yes. 
    Marquis of Wide: Taxation is one of the most important issues! To disregard 
    your lord is unacceptable!! 
    Gustave: I don't mean to offend, but Sir Mouton did it for the sake of Wide. 
    Marquis of Wide: I know! But why did you not mention a single word about it to 
    me? It demonstrates your lack of faith in my leadership. You will be placed on 
    suspension until further notice. Go home and think about what you have done 
    Mouton: Yes...

    Marquis of Wide: What is it, General? 
    Nebelstern: I heard you've suspended Mouton. 
    Marquis of Wide: Is there a problem with that? 
    Nebelstern: No. I believe your handling of the situation was correct. The 
    problem is, who is going to take over Mouton's job? 
    Marquis of Wide: This is nothing for a general to be concerned about. I will 
    handle this situation myself. 
    Nebelstern: Your Excellency, those who serve you, especially Mouton, all 
    faithfully served the previous lord. If you intend to push yourself away from 
    those people, and accept an unknown newcomer like Gustave, I will have no 
    choice but to resign. 
    exit Nebelstern 
    Marquis of Wide: All those who serve me used to work under my father. Because 
    of my age, they do not take me seriously. They all make decisions on their own.

    Gustave: ...Uh huh... 
    Mouton: Due to the switch to cheaper steel equipment, the millitary maintenance 
    costs have dropped, which contributes to our financial efficiency. 
    Gustave: ...Uh huh... 
    ...... ...Uh huh... 
    Mouton: On the other hand, the total consumption of charcoal has increased 
    drastically, and the cost of charcoal is rising as well. In connection with 
    this, there have been many cases of illegal woodcutting in the surrounding 
    woodlands, so therefore, we should increase the amount of charcoal

    What is up with him?

    winds of the open air. You! You are ordered not to let Master Gustave inside

    Gustave: Looks like these guys have no idea who I am. 
    Merchant Fleet Leader: But even if we wanted to, we couldn't leave port. 
    Gustave: Well, they probably know foreign lords by name only, not face. 
    Merchant Fleet Leader: That is where I'd like to ask you a favor... 
    Gustave: What!?

    to ask you a favor. 
    Did you hear me?

    Gustave: In other words, that baron's ship which sank yesterday and the Quell 
    held by the Silver Sails Fleet... 
    Merchant Fleet Leader: Neptune's Crystal Orb. 
    Gustave: You're saying they stole it? 
    Merchant Fleet Leader: They call themselves the Silver Sails Fleet, but in 
    reality, they're pirates...It's likely that they sank the baron's ship. 
    Neptune's Crystal Orb is a crucial Quell that gives its possessor the royal 
    trading rights...With that, even pirates could gain trading rights. 
    Gustave: What an odd system... 
    Merchant Fleet Leader: You have the means. Please help us. Please return the 
    Quell to us. I cannot return to my homeland while those pirates have possession 
    of the orb. 
    Gustave: Hey, wait a minute. This isn't my problem. Why don't you solve it 
    Merchant Fleet Leader: We have a rule which states that we cannot fight each 
    other over the trading rights. It's a non-aggression pact. 
    Gustave: This is going to be crazy! It's not everyday you get to steal aboard a 
    pirate ship! 
    Merchant Fleet Leader: Of course, you will be heavily rewarded. 
    Gustave: But it would not be good for me to meddle in the political affairs of 
    other countries...Maybe I can do it if I don't let them know my identity...That 
    might actually work! 
    Merchant Fleet Leader: Will you accept?

    Alright...I accept!

    Merchant Fleet Leader: ...are Neptune's Crystal Orb's general features. 
    Gustave: I got it. 
    Merchant Fleet Leader: Oh, and one more thing! 
    There is a man by the name of Bart in the Silver Sails Fleet. It would be best 
    to stay away from him. 
    Gustave: Is he strong? 
    Merchant Fleet Leader: And smart, too. 
    Gustave: Bart...I'll keep that in mind! 
    Merchant Fleet Leader: And you can get any other details by asking these 
    Do you three understand me!? 
    Merchanteer 1: Sir! 
    Merchanteer 3: Understood! 
    Merchanteer 2: Of course! 
    Gustave: I have something I want to ask you three about. 
    Merchanteer 1: Ask us anything. 
    Merchanteer 3: With pleasure! 
    Merchanteer 2: I'll tell you everything! 
    Gustave: What's the merchant fleet like? 
    Merchanteer 3: We used to work as domestic traders, but now that the baron is 
    dead, we've become... 
    Merchanteer 1: Hey! 
    Merchanteer 3: Uh, that is, even considering our unfortunate circumstances, we
    wish to maintain our trading business...heh...yeah. 
    Merchanteer 1: Our leader is the number one vassal of the late baron. He's the 
    one who ought to be the successor. He has a great business sense and is 
    constantly in search of new trading opportunities. 
    Merchanteer 2: Thanks to the benefits of transit commerce, our country will 
    soon be experiencing three times its normal profits. 
    Merchanteer 3: ...But...he's not very amiable. 
    Gustave: ...... 
    Gustave: What's the Silver Sails Fleet like? 
    Merchanteer 1: They're poor, so they have no clothes... 
    Merchanteer 3: ...they're ape-like... 
    Merchanteer 2: ...their feet stink... 
    Merchanteer 3: ...and that's about it. 
    Gustave: Who's Bart? 
    Merchanteer 1: He's just plain strong. He laid waste to several of our guys. 
    embarrassingly, I was taken out in two seconds. 
    Merchanteer 3: I was taken out in less than a second.  
    Gustave: What is Neptune's Crystal Orb? 
    Merchanteer 1: It's a Quell, shaped like the world. With it, you have trading 
    rights recognized by the royal family. 
    Merchanteer 3: Now that the baron is dead, the first one to present Neptune's 
    Crystal Orb to the king inherits the trading rights. 
    Merchanteer 2: Our leader's been after the trading rights... 
    Merchanteer 1: Hey! 
    Merchanteer 3: ...... 
    Merchanteer 1: Hey...later, you and I need to have a talk... 
    Gustave: What's your type? 
    Merchanteer 1: Soft skin 
    Merchanteer 3: Red head, with droopy eyes 
    Merchanteer 2: ...someone dependable... 
    Merchanteer 1 & 3: ...... 
    enter Gustave, captain, Silver Sails Fleet Members, farmer 
    Gustave: I've decided. Let me join. 
    Captain: Really!? 
    ...Actually, I have one thing to say to you. We, the Silver Sails Fleet, are a 
    little different from those other fleets.  
    Gustave: You're pirates, right? I know. 
    Captain: Gahahaha! Well, I'll be...!

    Captain: Hey, Bart! 
    Where have you been? Gus, this is Bart. 
    Gustave: Bart...So this is him... 
    Bart: ...Captain, didn't we agree not to allow outsiders onboard the ship? I've 
    heard about you. You defeated the three merchanteers. 
    Gustave: Well, yeah. 
    Bart: But captain, what do you intend to do about that peace agreement then? 
    Captain: He's good. He'll be useful. 
    Bart: Hmph...More than me? 
    ...Fine, then go and hire him. I'm going downstairs to organize the loot. 
    exit Bart 
    Gustave: I see. He is indeed powerful. 
    Captain: That guy...gruff as usual. Well, it's a little messy, but you're 
    welcome to do whatever you want. 
    Gustave: I'll do that. 
    I'm beginning to wonder if the pirates really do have the Quell. 
    enter Gustave, pirates 
    Gustave: There are three treasure chests! 
    Pirate: Hey, newcomer! As you can see, you won't be able to pass through here. 
    Gustave: What's inside? 
    Pirate: It's probably spice. Doesn't it smell nice? 
    Gustave: ...... 
    Pirate: It's that spicy fragrance that just gets your appetite going. Sorry 
    about all the mess. Why don't you wait upstairs while I clean up? 
    enter Gustave, pirates, captain 
    Captain: How much food is there left? 
    Pirate: I'd say about 40 days worth. 
    Captain: Seems pretty prosperous. Yeah, just yesterday we nailed a foreign 
    merchant ship. 
    Pirate: Gahahahah! Yeah, that was great! 
    Gustave: Ask about the assaulted ship 
    Foreign? I heard you hit a ship of the nobility. 
    Pirate: Nobility? You mean the baron's ship? 
    Captain: Gahahah! Don't trust rumors. 
    Gustave: Rumors...? 
    Captain: Bring the list o' loot to my room later. 
    Pirate: Aye! 
    What is it? 
    Gustave: Ask about the loot 
    Pirate: We hit the mother lode this time, hehehe! 
    Gustave: What's among the loot? 
    Pirate: Perishables...Then there's money and some rare jewels. 
    Gustave: Ask about the baron's ship 
    I heard the baron's ship was hit by pirates. 
    Pirate: It's just a rumor spread by the merchant fleet. I was off-duty. If you 
    want more details, ask him. 
    Pirate 2: What? 
    Pirate: This guy wants to know more about the baron's ship. 
    Pirate 2: ...I don't like talking about that. 
    Gustave: Make small talk 
    What do you do with the money you get? 
    Pirate: I get my ma lots of tasty food to eat. I've been so much trouble for 
    her. She deserves it. 
    Gustave: Ask about the treasure chest 
    Pirate 2: What's in that treasure chest? Open it and find out. 
    Pirate 3: I hope it's something to drink! I only want the best! 
    Pirate 2: Stupid fool! You're supposed to be the lookout! You want to come to 
    the same fate as the baron? 
    Pirate 3: S-Sorry... 
    Gustave: Ask about the baron's ship 
    Pirate 2: The baron's ship was hit by monsters. 
    Gustave: Monsters? How do you know? 
    Pirate 2: Because we tried to save the baron's ship. 
    Gustave: Save!? 
    Pirate 2: It was a horrible sight. By the time we arrived, it was already 
    sinking. The entire crew was lost. I don't even want to remember it.

    Bart: Yeah!...No. Will you do it?

    Captain: I see, you're suspicious of us, aren't you? Well, I don't blame you. 
    I won't deny that we've participated in some shady business in the past. 
    Gustave: Then you killed the baron?

    Gustave: Compass!? 
    Pirate: The captain's the only one who knows how to use that. 
    Gustave: A compass? What's this doing here? Isn't this usually supposed to be 
    used as a set with navigation charts...?

    Gustave: I heard you helped the baron. 
    Bart: Is it that unbelievable? 
    Gustave: Well, there are times when you find good-natured people among ones you 
    least expect. 
    Bart: Hahahah! Least expect, eh!? I hate the nobility, but the baron was an 
    exception. He loved our home, our city.  
    The jewelry made from coral. The city's famous sun-dried food. Grandma's 
    tapestry. He handled our home's famous goods, and he traded them with great 
    Gustave: You want to continue what the baron did and keep on trading, right...? 
    Bart: Is it strange for a pirate to be a trader? 
    Gustave: No...It's only by circumstance that you're a pirate...This may just be 
    a big test to attain your dreams.

    Bart: Anyway you look at it, he's not pirate material...I watched his 
    technique...I'm sure of it. That's the technique the royal family uses!

    agent of the royal family?......Even if, by some small chance, you happen to be 
    Bart: Captain? 
    Captain: I'm sure he'll understand what we're trying to do. We are trying to 
    fulfill our dreams. 
    He reminds me of myself, when I was his age. When the kid looked at the map... 
    ...He believed the world was nothing, and that it was just a dirty old map. 
    Bart: Hmph...Yeah, he was mumbling something about how there are good-natured 
    people where you least expect to find them. There's one thing I'm sure of; he 
    is an interesting fellow. But I still think we should clear this up as soon as

    Lady 1: I guess you're right, at least it's become very lively now.  
    (messenger streaks by) 
    Lady 2: Did something happen?

    has passed away. 
    enter Kelvin, Gustave 
    (Gustave pacing around) 
    Kelvin: What do you intend to do, Gustave?  
    Gustave: Intend to do? I was exiled from Finney. It has nothing to do with me. 
    If mother were alive, she probably would have been able to return to Thermes or 
    Nohl. But I have no intention of returning.  
    Kelvin: But you are the eldest son of King Gustave. You have the right to 
    inherit Finney. 
    Gustave: They've probably already decided on an heir. And there's also 
    Philippe, my younger brother. My sister, Marie, also has a husband. Any one of 
    them should do fine. Even you could be the heir, Kelvin. I don't care.  
    enter soldiers, bartender 
    Soldier 1: Why isn't Lord Gustave giving us the order to prepare for battle? 
    Soldier 2: I hear that Sir Kelvin is opposed to that idea.  
    Soldier 3: Likely, since he's a genuine spell caster.  
    Soldier 4: If that's true, it's not permissible! Let's go consult with Sir 
    Kelvin at once! 
    Soldier 1: Agreed, let's go!

    that he claim his right to accede to the throne.

    to take the field of battle?

    enter Leslie, Gustave

    you or not is a decision they must make on their own.

    Leslie: Well, let me see. What should I do? 
    enter Gustave, soldiers, Kelvin, Mouton 
    Gustave: Alright, I understand what you're all trying to say. But I don't have 
    any experience commanding an army. It's not going to be so easy that they're 
    going to let an amateur like me win. It's foolish to go into a fight you know 
    you're not going to win, in my opinion. So how about it? Is there someone among 
    us with experience enough to command several thousand troops? 
    Mouton: I beg your pardon, sir, but...why not call upon Nebelstern? 
    Gustave: But Mouton, I've already tried to invite him many times. I've been to 
    see him and Sir Thomas even put in a recommendation. I seriously doubt he will 
    want to work with someone like me, who ousted his former lord.  
    Mouton: As you explained earlier, there is presently no one in Wide with a 
    knowledge of military matters. Nebelstern is a very talented man. You need him, 
    my lord. May I take the responsibility of bringing him to you?

    to ask me to be a general again? If that's the case, I refuse.

    after all. Moreover, I'm interested in what lies in his future. I want to know 
    what his destiny is. 
    Nebelstern: You're saying he's that significant? Him? 
    Cielmer: Of that, I cannot be sure. It's just that I'd like to see how far he 
    can go without Spell Arts. I desire to see this through.  
    Nebelstern: Is that so? Well if you're that insistent, then I shall join you in 
    seeing what destiny awaits him as well.

    Narrator: Grand Valley A giant valley that splits the Eastern Continent into
    north and south. During the era of the ancient empire, a stone bridge spanned 
    the valley. The bridge could not withstand the flow of time, and has now mostly 
    collapsed. Yet, it still stands as the sole road connecting the north and the 
    south. To get across to the south, Wil now attempts to cross the bridge. Ten 
    days earlier...

    Narcisse: Down to Weissland, the land that's supposedly the birthplace of the 
    Spell Arts. You might be able to strike it big there.  
    Wil: That sounds like a plan. Let's go! How about you, Tyler? 
    Tyler: Yeah. I'll go as well. 
    Wil: Okay, then let's get ready right away. 
    Narcisse: I'm not coming with you this time. 
    Wil: Why? You're the one who suggested... 
    Narcisse: I only recommended it. Weissland is a land of intense cold. Too tough 
    for someone my age. And it's about time I retired. 
    Wil: You still have plenty of vigor, Narcisse. 
    Narcisse: I suggest you find someone else. 
    Man: What are you doing here? Is there something you need? 
    Wil: Can you tell me anything about the stone bridge? 
    Man: During the time of the ancient empire, many stone bridges connected the 
    northern and southern territories. Nowadays, only one bridge (well, the ruins 
    of one, to be exact) still stands. Still, it's better than having nothing at 
    Stone Bridge 
    Soldier: The toll is a million. 
    Wil: What! That's ridiculously expensive!! 
    Soldier: We'll settle for 10,000 if you give us a Quell. 
    Wil: You're trying to pull a fast one because I'm a digger. 
    Labelle: I know a different route.  
    Wil: Really! 
    Labelle: Yes. But it's a bit too dangerous to go alone. So I've been waiting 
    for a suitable partner to pass by. How about it, do you want to take the route? 
    Wil: Go 
    Labelle: Then let's go. 
    (base of stone bridge) 
    Labelle: We'll go through the valley below instead of crossing the bridge. 
    enter Narcisse 
    Narcisse: Wait! 
    Wil: Sir Narcisse! 
    Narcisse: I knew you'd be reckless. Do you know what kind of place this is? The 
    fog and the monsters trap the unwary in this valley. It's a place where people 
    will even pay the outrageous toll so they can cross the bridge just to avoid 
    the valley. 
    Wil: But it is connected to the other side, right? 
    Narcisse: You don't know when to quit, do you? So you'd rather risk your life 
    than hand over a Quell. You've become quite an impressive digger. Fine, this is 
    the last time I'm going with you. 
    Wil: Thank you, Sir Narcisse. 
    Narcisse: Hey, woman. What can you do? 
    Labelle: How rude. I have a name you know. I'm Labelle. My specialty is the 
    Narcisse: An archer? That's rare. So why are you going south? 
    Labelle: I'm looking for a man. Don't ask me to tell you anything more! 
    Valley of Mist 
    Wil: The fog's getting thicker...We'd better get through soon, or there'll be 
    (area with Volcanoid) 
    Wil: This area's especially thick with fog. This isn't normal. 
    What's this...Some kind of staff? No, a spear? 
    Pull it out 
    (battle with Volcanoid ensues) 
    (after obtaining the Ice Lance) 
    Wil: The fog's cleared a little...Was this causing the fog? 
    Wil: With only this much fog, we might be able to...Alright, here's our chance! 
    Narcisse: As agreed, this is where we part. 
    Wil: Sir Narcisse... 
    Narcisse: Good luck in whatever you do. 
    Wil: Yes. 
    Narcisse: Take care, Wil. Oh, to tell you the truth, I can't stand the cold.

    Patrick: I wanted my stomach filled with something good before I left for 
    Weissland, but... 
    Wil: You're heading for Weissland? I'm travelling to Weissland, as well. This 
    is a rare coincidence. As we are both hungry fellows, how would you like to 
    join us on the trip there? My name is Wil.

    Wil: Ahh, it's warm in here. 
    There's something different about this fireplace. 
    No, it couldn't be...Is it a Quell fireplace!? 
    Customer: It seems you don't find Quell fireplaces elsewhere. How do they ever 
    get by in the cold? 
    enter Wil, clerk 
    Wil: Phew, it's warm in here. 
    So there's one over here, too. 
    Clerk: That's right. This village uses the power of Quells to get heat. You've 
    come from elsewhere, right? It must've been some trip to come all the way out 
    here to the edge of the world. 
    Wil: Where did you find this Quell!? 
    Clerk: It's been there since my grandfather's grandfather's, and even his 
    grandfather's time, more grandfathers than I can count, so I don't know...Never 
    mind that; please buy something from me.  
    enter Wil, customers, bartender, William

    are so plentiful here. Weissland isn't the birthplace of Spell Arts for

    William: Hmm, my name is William, too. What a coincidence. We have the same 
    goals and name.  
    Labelle: Big brother!! 
    William: Mich? Is that you Mich? You're all grown up. I didn't recognize you.  
    Labelle: Ten years. It's been ten years since you've left home, big brother. 
    William: Really? It's already been that long? I'd almost forgotten. 
    Labelle: Let's go home. 
    William: I'm not going home. I'm not finished yet. 
    Labelle: What? You can't even do it. You never change. You're nothing but talk! 
    William: Shut up! I know I may not be as good as you, but that's exactly why I 
    need the Quell.  
    Wil: Now, now, let's calm down... 
    Labelle: Keep out of it! 
    William: This has nothing to do with you! 
    Wil: Uh, I'm sorry... 
    enter customers, Wil, bartender, William, Labelle 
    William: Hey you, weren't you looking for Quells? Then, come with me. There's a 
    Megalith to the south of here.  
    Wil: A Megalith!! Really!? 
    Labelle: Wait a minute. What's this Megalith thingy? 
    William: Let me explain it, Mich. Quells have been around longer than we. 
    They're much older than the ancient empire. No one knows who or what created 
    them. And then, there's the Megalith. It's an artifact that is also much older 
    than the ancient empire. It is also rumored that the ancient empire conquered 
    the Eastern Continent by gathering Quells from the Megalith. Now do you know 
    what I'm trying to get at? I might be able to obtain a Quell of extraordinary 
    Wil: But the Megalith is dangerous. My father once told me that the Megalith 
    holds tremendous power, that the Megalith is like a giant Quell.  
    Labelle: Then you might be consumed by the power of the Quell... 
    Wil: Yes. That's why few have gone to the Megalith and come back to tell about 
    William: "High risk, high return" is what I say. C'mon, let's do it. It's 
    really tough getting through the ice and cold on your own. The locals here are 
    too content staying warm indoors. They don't care about what goes on outside. 
    They're of no use to me.  
    Wil: Actually, I'd like to go also... 
    Labelle: Fine. Let's hurry up and go to this Megalith so we can go home. Will 
    that make you happy, big brother? 
    William: Yeah, of course. I can't wait to hear everyone call me "Tycoon 
    William" once we get back home.  
    enter Wil 
    enter William 
    William: There's a lake with an island in the middle up ahead. The Megalith is 
    frozen inside there. You can only cross to the island at certain times. We'll 
    have to wait here. I used this tent here while I was observing the island.

    Wil: Hang on, everyone!...My head...Have to save the others... 
    Labelle: ...il... 
    Wil: What happened...Is everyone alright? 
    Labelle: Thank you, Wil. We're all safe, thanks to you. 
    Wil: I didn't do anything.  
    Tyler: No, it was you. You protected us from that splitting headache. And then 
    we awakened. 
    Wil: I really didn't do anything. I remember thinking that I had to do 
    something when everyone collapsed but I couldn't. I ended up passing out 
    Labelle: Big brother, where'd you hide it? Get that thing out. 
    William: I was just about to bring it out. It wasn't like I was hiding it or
    anything. Here it is. I think it's a Quell... 
    Wil: It's a Quell. I can sense its power. How did you get a hold of this? 
    Labelle: It was in your hand.  
    Wil: What? How? Anyway, that room is dangerous. Let's stay out of there. Let's 
    investigate the other areas first. 
    Labelle: What kind of power does that Quell have? 
    Wil: It's got some kind of healing ability. 
    William: I wasn't trying to hide it or anything. Really. 
    Wil: I know. 
    Cordelia: Thank you, Wil. 
    Wil: It's kind of awkward hearing you say that directly to my face. 
    Tyler: It was as if I had all these thoughts at once. It was really confusing.  
    Patrick: Wouldn't it be good to leave before something bad happens? 
    Wil: Maybe you're right. But if we go back now, this entire journey will be 
    Why was I holding the Quell? What can this room be?

    1247 Landing 
    Narrator: Upon the death of Gustave XII, King of Finney, Gustave XIV becomes 
    the successor to the throne. The Gustaves are half brothers. Gustave makes a 
    claim as the inheritor of Gustave XII's property or, in other words, the rights 
    to the Finney Kingdom, and gathers his troops. 
    1247 The shore of the Lordless Land on the Eastern Continent 
    enter Kelvin, Gustave on a boat 
    Kelvin: So how does it feel to set foot on the Eastern Continent for the first 
    time in 20 years, Gustave? 
    Gustave: I feel nothing. 
    Kelvin: That's rather unemotional. You were guided by Master Cielmer and 
    escaped with Madam Sophie, and this is your reaction upon your return? 
    enter Gustave, Kelvin 
    Kelvin: Did you ever think that one day you would return home commanding an 
    army? How do you feel? 
    Gustave (closing eyes): I wonder what mother would've said if she were still 
    Kelvin: She would obviously be very pleased. 
    Gustave (opens eyes): I will now have to fight my half brother. I'm sure mother 
    would have no desire for such a bloody act. 
    Kelvin: It's not like you to be so weak spirited. 
    Gustave: Soon, many Animas will disappear from the face of the earth. They will 
    desperately fight for themselves and for their families. They believe that, if 
    I gain the throne, those things that have been lost will not have been in vain. 
    However, I do not want the throne. I just want to see what I am capable of. I 
    am sacrificing everyone's Anima for so selfish a motive. How appropriate, 
    coming from a man with no Anima, eh? 
    Kelvin: Get one thing straight, Gustave. No matter what you may be thinking, I 
    don't want you ever to utter such words in front of our men. You understand? 
    enter Nebelstern 
    Nebelstern: So this is where you were. 
    Gustave: Is the landing proceeding as planned, General? 
    Nebelstern: Yes, there are no problems. The landing has been a success, and now 
    I would like to send messengers out to each region. I would like them to spread 
    the word that the rightful heir, the son born to Gustave XII and Queen Sophie, 
    has returned home.  
    Gustave: I am not the rightful heir, General. I'm just a good-for-nothing. 
    Nebelstern: Sir Gustave, it is important to make apparent the purpose of this 
    battle. If the people here believe that we are invaders from the Southern 
    Continent, they will desperately fight against us. In contrast, if they know 
    this is an internal conflict of the Finney royal family, they will not care who 
    wins. They will simply yield to the victor. Therefore, from a strategic point 
    of view, we have to portray this as a battle of Gustave against Gustave.  
    Gustave: Alright, General. I'll leave that aspect up to you, so please confer 
    with Kelvin and make your decisions. 
    exit Gustave 
    Kelvin: General, what do you think? Gustave is usually very cool and sharp. But 
    when it comes to himself, his judgment begins to fail, and he becomes quite 
    Nebelstern: Sir Kelvin, are you proud of your blood?  
    Kelvin (nod): Of course. I am proud that I was born in the House of Jade, and I 
    will undertake any duty given by my house with pleasure.  
    Nebelstern: Sir Gustave curses his own blood. He not only brings grief upon 
    himself, but to those around him. That is what he fears most. He feels that 
    others look down upon him because he is ungifted. He harbors resentment because 
    of this. On the other hand, he has a positive spirit; he wants to see what he 
    can do with his own abilities. He has confidence in himself.  
    Kelvin: Your insight into Gustave is quite impressive.  
    Nebelstern: It is merely secondhand knowledge gained from Master Cielmer. I 
    believe my job is to contain Sir Gustave's dark side. Your presence is crucial 
    as well, Kelvin.  
    Kelvin: Indeed...there is much work ahead of us. Anyway, we should be concerned 
    about winning this battle, for now. This is obviously for Gustave's sake, and 
    also for our own. 
    1248 Battle of Buckethill 
    Lordless Land 
    Narrator: Successfully landing at the Lordless Land, Gustave proceeds east and 
    crosses the Anath  River. The King of Finney, Gustave XIV, gathers his vassal 
    lords, and advances southward. Gustave's army blockades Zahl Peak and begins 
    the confrontation. The royal army forms a separate force under Cantal's command 
    to take advantage of their own superior numbers and moves to attack Gustave's 
    army from behind. Noticing this movement, Gustave's army draws back and 
    camouflages itself on Zahl Peak. With fortune on their side, they regroup with 
    the newly arrived reinforcements under the Count of Jade's command. They 
    initiate an attack on Cantal's separate force. Cantal avoids battle and 
    withdraws. He stands by and observes the rest of the battle. The royal army 
    finally notices that Gustave's army has retreated from Zahl Peak and begins to 
    move in for an attack. Gustave's army also moves to intercept. The two armies 
    collide at Buckethill, near the Ruins of Hahn. Gustave's day of destiny is 
    about to begin.

    Gustave: I believe this is the first time we meet face to face, Your Majesty. 
    Depending on the outcome, it would have been just as easy for me to be in your 
    current predicament. It appears that I was just a bit luckier than you. What is 
    wrong? You have too much pride to speak to a good-for-nothing like me? 
    Kelvin, General, I'll leave the rest up to you. Farewell, Your Majesty.

    Noble: All of the taxes, with one exception, have been carried into the castle.
    Kelvin: ...It seems the taxes from Otto are still unpaid. 
    Noble: Yes. The Marquis of Otto has given many reasons for postponing payment 
    of taxes this year. 
    Gustave: He was probably preparing for some anticipated change in the state of 
    affairs. He's a very shrewd man.  
    Nebelstern: We must keep a sharp eye on him. 
    enter messenger 
    Messenger: Your Lordship, the Marquise of Otto has arrived and is requesting an 
    Gustave: Marie? Show her through to this room.  
    exit messenger 
    Nebelstern: We will leave you two alone, Your Lordship. 
    Gustave: No, that won't be necessary. She announced herself as the Marquise of 
    Otto. We should consider her to be an emissary of Otto. 
    enter Marie 
    (Marie courtsies) 
    Marie: I am Marie, wife of the Marquis of Otto. I'm delighted to meet you, dear 
    Gustave: Delighted to meet me? That's a rather strange way for brother and 
    sister to greet.  
    Marie: Yes, you are correct. Yet, I am meeting you for the first time. It has 
    been twenty years, dear brother.  
    Gustave: I know that we have much to talk about, but I assume that there is an 
    important issue that brings you here today, Marquise? 
    Marie: Yes. It is as you have guessed. My husband Cantal, Marquis of Otto, 
    requests permission to swear allegiance to Your Highness. I understand this 
    must seem impertinent, but I, too, wish that you would grant us your 
    understanding, dear brother.  
    Gustave: Allegiance or no, he is the husband of my sister, my brother-in-law. 
    Tell him to be at ease, and to govern the Otto territory as he always has. 
    Return this message to him.  
    Marie: I'm very relieved to hear that. This will prevent any unnecessary 
    spilling of blood. Dear brother, I have many, many things that I wish to 
    discuss with you, but I must ask your permission to leave for today. I would 
    like to bring this wonderful news to Cantal as soon as possible.  
    (Marie courtsies) 
    exit Marie 
    Nebelstern: Cantal gave in pretty easily. It was quite unexpected.  
    Gustave: He probably fears the possibility of an alliance between Philippe and 
    I. Although torn apart, we are brothers by blood, you know.  
    What's the matter, Kelvin? 
    Kelvin: She was the very image of her mother, Sophie... 
    Gustave: Yes, I agree. She takes after our dear mother. 
    Kelvin: What am I saying, at a time like this? Please excuse me! Now that Otto 
    has come under our control, all that remains is the Marquis of Nohl.  
    Gustave: Philippe will not come. He bears a strong resentment towards me. 
    Nebelstern: Since we have Otto on our side, Nohl will now be isolated. Putting 
    personal issues aside, the Marquis of Nohl must come, if he wishes to fulfill 
    his duty to the people. Otherwise, he will be placing the people of Nohl in a 
    state of danger.  
    Kelvin: If worst comes to worst, we should ask Marie for special assistance. 
    Uh, I don't mean that in a strange way. Don't get me wrong.  
    Gustave: The only strange one is you, Kelvin.  
    enter Gustave

    even after he succeeded the Marquis of Nohl.  
    enter Leslie 
    Leslie: It's a well-lit room.  
    That portrait! What a terrible thing... 
    Gustave: He always was a lonesome child, always following me around, calling 
    out, "Brother, dear brother." He was also a crybaby. Always stumbling around 
    and bursting into tears. He probably didn't even understand the reason why he 
    was separated from his mother. I always wondered how he endured the separation 
    from his mother, the sadness of being alone, at the mere age of five. It's been 
    twenty years since then. To overcome his sadness, he's transformed it into 
    hatred towards me.  
    Both Philippe and Marie lost their beloved mother because of me. Because of me, 
    because I was born... 
    Leslie: Don't say such a thing, Gus. Don't say it. Madam Sophie will be 
    saddened. And I, too...... 
    (Leslie cries) 
    Gustave: Leslie, why do you cry? 
    Leslie: Because...It's because Madam Sophie gave birth to you, and many things 
    happened and...That's why I stand here now. Back then, I was really scared, I 
    wanted to run away, but I hated the idea of running, so I gathered the courage 
    to stay. That's why I stand here now. Back then, you were really, really 
    Oh, what am I saying all this for? 
    Gustave: Thanks, Leslie. You're always there when I need you. 
    Leslie: You might feel so, but it's always hard on me to be around you, Gus. It 
    feels like I'm always being swung around and dragged into the deep.  
    Well, at least I won't ever have to deal with boredom. 
    enter Gustave, Marie, Kelvin, Nebelstern 
    Gustave: I apologize for having you come all the way down here, Marie.  
    Marie: Not at all, dear brother. Besides, it is the first time in twenty years 
    that our family is reuniting. I can feel my heart pounding with excitement. 
    Dear Gustave, please try not to fight with dear brother Philippe.  
    Gustave: Of course. Kelvin, I would like to be left alone today.  
    Kelvin: No. We're being pretty reserved as it is. To be honest, I feel that the 
    security is rather lacking, with only the general and myself to protect you.  
    Gustave: You worry too much.  
    Kelvin: To whom do you think I do this!? 
    Messenger: Marquis Philippe of Nohl has arrived!! 
    enter Philippe 
    Gustave: Is that you...Philippe? 
    Marie: Dear brother, please come closer.  
    Philippe: I have come to kill you today. 
    Kelvin: Why you!! 
    Gustave: Kelvin!! 
    Philippe, I hear you are a skilled spell caster, unlike me. Then you can still 
    kill me standing from there, right? 
    Marie: Please stop, Philippe! 
    Philippe: I have been waiting twenty years for this day, hating you and hating 
    you, just thinking about the exact moment that I could lay my hands on you, and 
    kill you myself! 
    But why...? Why is it that I can feel our mother's Anima within you? Why do I 
    feel so nostalgic... 
    Gustave: Philippe, Marie, before our mother's Anima left on her journey, she 
    told me to give you this message. I'm very, 
    Sophie's image: I'm very sorry, Philippe, Marie. 
    Marie and Philippe: Mother! 
    Philippe: Motherrrr!

    Philippe: I want you to know that I haven't forgiven you. I'm doing it for the 
    people of Nohl.  
    Gustave: I know. Philippe, I have no intention of becoming the king of this 
    country. As you are well aware, I have no right to the Firebrand. What about 
    Philippe: After mother left for Gruegel, Father stopped treating Marie and I 
    like his children. That was because another boy was born. Regardless, I will be 
    this country's heir. The blood within me is the rightful blood of the heir.

    practically complete. The second phase of the urban development is about to 
    commence. Today, I was summoned to explain that phase to Lord Gustave. It's 
    like a dream for me to be able to gain audience with His Majesty. I'm very 
    nervous. I'm worried that I might disrespect His Majesty. I've heard rumors 
    that Lord Gustave can be very merciless. My wife and I cried together last 
    evening. We may not see each other again.  
    (Gustave's footsteps) 
    CTM: Oh, I hear footsteps approaching. Why is he running? My final hour has 
    arrived. Farewell, everyone...Farewell... 
    enter Gustave 
    Gustave: I've kept you waiting.  
    Now, begin your explanation. 
    CTM: Y-Yes. 
    It's rather crude, but using a doll of myself, let me explain.  
    Gustave: Okay. 
    CTM: The sections already completed are the palace and the commons. Using these 
    as the center, the urban area will be built in an arc around it.  
    Gustave: Okay. 
    CTM: The urban area will be split into three large sections divided by these 
    roads, radiating outward. 
    Gustave: Okay. 
    CTM: Each district of the city will have it's own separate function and hence, 
    I believe, will raise efficiency.  
    Gustave: Okay. 
    So then, what type of district will you build here? 
    CTM: Yes, here... 
    the entertainment district 
    Gustave: Wait a minute. What is the need for an entertainment district? 
    CTM: You can't consider a city a capital without an entertainment district!! 
    Gustave: Maybe you're right. 
    What type of district will you place here? 
    CTM: Yes, here... 
    the entertainment district 
    Gustave: Wait a minute. What is the need for two entertainment districts? 
    CTM: Society has misunderstood you as a power hungry ruler or a blood-lusting 
    warlord. By building two entertainment districts, you will be able to express 
    your true desire to create peace and comfort in the lives of your citizens. 
    Gustave: Maybe you're right. 
    So then, what type of district will you place here? 
    CTM: Yes, here... 
    the entertainment district 
    Gustave: Wait a minute. What is the need for three entertainment districts? It 
    is acceptable to have an entertainment district. It is acceptable to show to 
    everyone my generosity. However, what  are you trying to do by making the 
    entire capital an entertainment district? 
    CTM: Most humbly, Your Majesty, but my mission is to create a new metropolis, 
    like no other in the world. Villages with blacksmiths, towns with shopping 
    areas, they already exist. Does there exist a city solely devoted to 
    entertainment? No. There has never been such a city throughout history, nor 
    will there be such a city in the future. This city will be the exception!! 
    Gustave: That is brilliant. 
    I understand well. Proceed with that plan. While you're at it, I will appoint 
    you as the overseer of the entertainment district. Serve me well as its mayor.  
    CTM: Y-Yes!! 
    exit Gustave 
    CTM: Whew...I did it. I really did it. But how unexpected. Lord Gustave said it 
    was brilliant. I knew my desperate efforts would be heard...He even appointed 
    me as the mayor. I could wish for nothing more!! 
    Now, I will be the king of the entertainment district!!! 
    1250 The Firebrand Tragedy 
    Thermes 1250 
    Narrator: Since Gustave has moved to the currently under construction Hahn 
    Nova, Thermes castle is left in the hands of Philippe. Yet, since Philippe has 
    not undergone the Firebrand Ceremony, he is a king, but not a real king.  
    enter bartender, customers, old man, bar hostess 
    Old Man: Ohh, I can't stand it! 
    Bar Hostess: Uh oh, the old man is starting to mumble again. I wonder what he's 
    going to blather on about today? 
    Old Man: How darned long must we wait until we get a new king!? 
    Customer 1: Oh, but we already have Sir Philippe. He is a splendid lord. 
    Old Man: He's not what you'd call a real king.  
    Customer 2: Whoa, whoa, ol' man. You're speaking too loudly. 
    Old Man: Well, I've been a loudmouth from birth!! He, who cannot even handle 
    the Firebrand, is no king of the royal Finney kingdom! 
    Bartender: I've heard news that Lord Philippe will be attempting the Firebrand 
    Ceremony soon.  
    Old Man: What was that!? He'll be burned to death! 
    Bartender: A castle tenant told me that they are preparing for the ceremony, 
    since his lord said no one will know for sure if he is fit or not until he 
    attempts the Firebrand.  
    Old Man: When I was a young lad, there was a rogue that tried to steal the 
    Firebrand. But this rogue was burned to death by the power of the Firebrand, 
    and not even his ashes were left behind. An Anima that has not been initiated 
    will run out of control and be consumed by the flames. The more powerful the 
    Anima, the harder it will be to control the Firebrand. That is why the royal 
    family conducts the ceremony on their heirs while they're still young, when 
    their Anima is still weak.

    Philippe: So you've come all the way down from Hahn Nova to ridicule me, 
    haven't you? 
    Marie: Dear brother Philippe, how are your wounds? 
    Gustave: It's no use trying to deceive him. It was a reckless challenge.  
    Philippe: I haven't been so debased as to be spoken to like that by a good-for-
    nothing like you! 
    The only thing that the nobles and the people want is a perfect king who is 
    blessed by the Firebrand. A king is necessary for the stability of the Finney 
    kingdom. A rambler like you, living as you please, will never understand, but 
    those born to royal blood have obligations to keep. I only intended to fulfill 
    Gustave: Marie, I reckon that Philippe has a son? 
    Marie: Yes, dear brother. The very adorable Philippe II. I believe he has just 
    turned two years old.  
    Gustave: Philippe, just wait five more years. By then, your son will be old 
    enough to attempt the Firebrand Ceremony.

    Gustave: Nonsense!! I want the truth!

    Wil: So how are things going?  
    Boss: We~ll, the mining is going smoothly, but with the Marquis of Otto in 
    charge now, the quotas are too demanding. That is why we've asked you to come 
    once again.  
    Wil: Aren't we a little close to the underground reservoir here? 
    Boss: Yes. It would actually be better to dig more toward the monster lair.  
    Wil: I sense something bad... 
    Boss: Again!? Give me a break already. 
    Wil: I'm not kidding! Hurry up and get out of here! 
    Wil: This is bad. The ceiling could come down at any moment. It might only hold 
    for another 10 minutes at most. 
    Wil: Cracks are spreading into the walls. There isn't much time before the 
    tunnel collapses. 
    Wil: It's already taken me 4 or 5 minutes to get this far! I have to hurry! 
    Wil: Dammit! I'm taking too much time! If the entrance is blocked, it's over! 
    Wil: It may be too late already. No, it's pointless to think about that now! I
    gotta push on!
    Miner 1: Uwaaahhh! 
    Wil: Hey, pull yourself together! 
    Miner 1: Wha-! What was I? You brought me back? Thank you. Now let's get out of

    Westia, A town where the Quell-seekers gather 
    Man: What are you doing here? Is there something you need? 
    Wil: Can you tell me anything about the Anima Faith? 
    Man: They're a suspicious gang that whole-heartedly believes the power of the 
    Anima is the only truth in this world. Probably due to this belief, the 
    Followers seem to have much hostility towards Gustave, and others not gifted 
    with Anima. 
    Wil: Tyler, long time no see. 
    Tyler: Yo, Wil. It's been a while. How's life back in Wide? 
    Wil: There's no conflict like we have over here. It's a great place to live.  
    Tyler: So what brings you over here from a nice place like that? 
    Wil: I came here because I heard rumors about the Anima Followers. 
    Tyler: There are lots of rumors flying around here. Such as Lord Philippe's 
    assassins were of the faith, or, that Lord Gustave is going to annihilate the 
    Anima Faith in the near future, and so on and so forth.  
    Wil: The only rumor that caught my attention was that the Anima Followers had 
    got hold of the Egg. I intend to meet them to confirm this.  
    Tyler: There are rumors like that? I've heard that the Anima Followers are 
    gathering secretly and  hiding out in the Ruins of Hahn. Let's go check it out. 
    Hey Raymond. You haven't met Wil yet have you? Wil, this is Raymond. His skill 
    with the bow is noteworthy. Raymond, meet William Knights.

    accompany you on this mission.

    Kelvin: Lord Gustave! 
    Gustave: Kelvin, what are you doing here? I thought I ordered you to look after 
    Hahn Nova? 
    Kelvin: Are you serious about going through with this, Gustave? I agree that 
    Lord Philippe's assassination was probably conducted by the Anima Followers. 
    But more than half of them are just normal people that have nothing to do with 
    it. Nothing will come of this bloodshed. Hate only gives way to more hate.  
    Gustave: No one is asking you to do it. I will do it myself. Communicate this 
    to the commanders; show no mercy. 
    enter Wil, Anima Followers 
    Wil: I guess it was just a rumor. It should've been no problem for the 
    possessor to become the leader of this faith with the power of the Egg.

    Wil: Tyler, is it really true that the pirates have got hold of the Egg?

    Wil: Then that'll be fine. I've already arranged a plan. 
    enter Narcisse 
    Narcisse: What kind of plan did you come up with, Wil? 
    Wil: Sir Narcisse! Has your health recovered? 
    Narcisse: Yes, I've been doing better lately. So, what plan did you come up 
    Wil: I've leaked a rumor about a highly valuable Quell being discovered in a 
    certain town to an informer. Since I was the one that leaked it, the informer 
    completely believed my words. I've already confirmed that this informer works 
    for the pirates. This should draw these pirates to the town. I will then use 
    this opportunity to sneak in and find the Egg. 
    Narcisse: Wil, did you really do that? You've become reckless, Wil. These 
    pirates aren't coming over to play. Do you know what's going to happen to the 
    people of that town? 
    Wil: Those pirates were probably going to raid some town even without this 
    info. It's not like you to worry about others, Sir Narcisse. 
    Narcisse: What I'm worrying about is you, Wil. When it comes to the Egg, your 
    obsession rules over your sensibilities. 
    Wil: This is none of your business. Why are you trying to be such a crusader of 
    justice? Whatever happened to your usual cool attitude? Just leave me alone, 
    like you usually do. 
    Narcisse: You used to listen to others' opinions. Being called Tycoon must have 
    gone to your head. Let's take it outside, Wil. I'll knock some sense back in to 
    (Wil moves to fight) 
    Tyler: Stop it, Wil. Narcisse is still weak from his illness. Wil, according to 
    your plans, we're the ones that are going to guard that town, right? While you 
    infiltrate the pirate ship, we protect the town. That's the plan, right, Wil? 
    Wil: Tyler...... 
    Tyler: Okay, leave the town to us. Got that, Patrick? Raymond?

    Tyler: He's off on a different job. What about you? What's your business here? 
    You're not a local, are you? 
    Gustave: I hear that digger William Knights is quite famous among his kind. He 
    came to notify me that pirates would be attacking this city in the near future. 
    I've come to exterminate those pirates. Most of the people in the city have 
    been replaced with my men. Additionally, Nebelstern and his men are on standby 
    just outside the city. It's over for the pirates. 
    Tyler: That Wil...He did take care of all the loose ends. Why didn't he explain 
    it to Narcisse? Those two are so stubborn...

    come today, while I can still walk on my own.  
    Lately, I have been recalling my memories about the first time I met you, Lord 
    Gustave. At the time, I thought you were such a reckless man.  
    Gustave: Haha, I must have been a real troublemaker to a cool and composed 
    Nebelstern: No, not at all. I was thinking how similar you were to me, when I 
    was young. Until I took my father's place in service of a Wide lord, I was 
    adventuring across the land, living by my own skills. And this is something 
    everyone experiences once: I became overconfident in my skills. I came up with 
    a reckless plan to make a round trip through the wastelands between Gruegel and 
    Vogelang alone.

    Cielmer: Good day. You look like you just came in through the canyons. Take a 
    break, and make yourself comfortable.  
    Nebelstern: It was quite an ordeal to get all the way here by myself.  
    Cielmer: By yourself!? Such a reckless person. It is unwise to unnecessarily 
    risk the very Anima given to you by your parents.  
    Nebelstern: Hey, it's my Anima. I'll do what I want. Anyway, I'm only half-way. 
    I have to travel back to Gruegel now. 
    Cielmer: You intend to return home on your own? If it doesn't bother you, allow 
    me to travel with you.  
    Nebelstern: Please, do join me 
    Cielmer: I am Cielmer. I have a travelling companion with me at the bar. Let us 
    invite him as well.

    enter Nebelstern 
    Cielmer: Narcisse, let's start heading back to Gruegel.  
    Narcisse: Master Cielmer, if you knew that there wouldn't be anything here, you 
    should have warned me beforehand. This was a completely wasted trip.  
    Cielmer: I already told you that I didn't think there were any Quells here. 
    Besides, Quells aren't the only things useful.  
    Narcisse: Oh well, I'll leave it at that. I did find interesting Tools, though. 
    By the way, who is this little chap? 
    Nebelstern: What do you mean little chap! I am Nebelstern. I've travelled alone 
    across the desert from Gruegel.  
    Narcisse: Alone! You think doing something reckless is proof of bravery, kid? 
    Nebelstern: Let's see you prove your bravery. Step outside! 
    Cielmer: That is enough! If you do anything foolish, I will punish you 
    personally. All right, let us be off.  
    Narcisse: Yes. 
    Nebelstern: What a snob.  
    Cielmer: At times, it becomes necessary to cooperate with people you may not 
    like. If you can't do that, only death awaits you.  
    Hahn Nova 
    Gustave: So that's what happened between you and Master Cielmer.  
    Are you alright having such a long conversation? 
    Nebelstern: Yes, in fact, I feel rejuvenated. Well, I will take my leave now. 
    Thank you, sir. This is as far as you need to go to see me off.  
    Gustave: General!... Thank you.

    Soldier: Yes, sir. We haven't heard from them since that message came, saying 
    that they had run into a pack of monsters. We've sent out scouts, but they 
    haven't returned. 
    Gustave: It's too dangerous to move around at night. Wait until daybreak. 
    Relax, Flynn. Dirk is quite accomplished, unlike his father.

    of monsters.

    Gustave: Fools! I would be dishonoring Master Cielmer if I were to let you die. 
    On top of that, they only want ME! The more distance you put between us, the 
    better your chances are.  
    Flynn: I don't want to say good-bye! 
    Ventarbre: I just can't leave you behind, Sir Gustave! Master Cielmer would

    local that his village was under attack. He led us around and around, and ended 
    up getting us lost. That's why we were so late.

    Kelvin: Dirk, is that true? 
    Dirk: Yes... 
    Narrator: The news of Gustave's death spreads quickly throughout the continent, 
    and many lords and their armies begin to gather at Hahn Nova. But there are 
    those who do not appear. The most notable of them all is Marquis Cantal of 
    Noble 1: The Marquis of Otto is disgraceful! Why will he not come to Hahn Nova? 
    Noble 2: At a time when we have to commence Lord Gustave's funeral, his refusal 
    to attend is treasonous! 
    Kelvin: The Marquis of Otto has an important duty to look after Thermes. He 
    cannot just leave Thermes on a whim.  
    Noble 3: What are you talking about, Sir Kelvin? Given that he plays such an 
    important role he should be one of the first to pay his respects. 
    Noble 4: Cantal's malice is evident. It is likely that he was responsible for 
    the attack on Lord Gustave! 
    Noble 5: Crush him! Cantal, the Marquis of Otto, must be punished! 
    Kelvin: Please, wait. Let us send a messenger to the Marquis. Then we can 
    confirm Sir Cantal's true intentions.

    Cantal: That will do. Order the troops to prepare at once.	 
    And then summon our entire force. 
    Noble 2: Sire, are we setting up a defensive formation? 
    Cantal: We will advance on Berth and occupy it. I'll show Kelvin that real 
    politics is not debate, but action!

    Making the first move, eh? That's going to be your mistake, Cantal! 
    enter Cantal, nobles 
    Noble 1: The neighboring lords have returned to their lands. Sire, what is your 
    Cantal: Send a messenger to Opus and Sleibul. Offer to join forces to take down 
    Toule. Don't forget to give our condolences to Gustave. 
    How large is our force? 
    Noble 2: We have gathered five thousand, sire. 
    Cantal: Good, we'll commence an attack on Carnack. Take it down by brute force. 
    Once we show them our power, the other lords will come begging to be under my 
    Narrator: Even after 20 days, the army still has not made its move against 
    Cantal. More than half of Merchmin's lords join under Cantal. Those irritated 
    by the inconclusive meetings and their spectators begin to distance themselves

    enter messenger 
    Messenger: Your Excellency, Cantal's forces are approaching. We are the only 
    army left. It would be impossible to fend them off. We should evacuate. There 
    is nothing to gain from defending Hahn Nova.  
    Kelvin: We cannot abandon Gustave's city. 
    Messenger: Let us return to Jade and regroup there. I'm sure the rest of the
    men are hoping for that as well. 
    Kelvin: Do you feel the same? 
    Messenger: I have not returned to Jade for years. The men's families are there.
    Kelvin: I understand. Let's go home to Jade.

    Noble: We've just received word that the Jade Army is withdrawing from Hahn 
    Nova. We should charge Hahn Nova now!

    There is no need to rush. The soldiers are weary. We will camp here and enter 
    Hahn Nova tomorrow morning. 
    Noble: Yes, sir! 
    Narrator: The city is ravaged by flames the night Kelvin's army leaves.  
    Burglars and monsters enter the city. 
    Without its defenders, the city is free for the plundering.

    Cantal: Did Kelvin set the fire? 
    Noble: No, the local monsters and thugs have assaulted the unguarded city. 
    Your Excellency, at this rate, Hahn Nova will be in ruins. Ruins are worthless 
    to us. We should purge the thugs and monsters from Hahn and take it.  
    Cantal: Let them be. I had no intentions of ever taking that city. It would've 
    been a target for the others, anyway. Right now, I don't have the power to deal 
    with that. 
    Noble: But Your Excellency... 
    Cantal: Besides, that city is Gustave's. It's only appropriate that it return 
    to the earth, as he has. 
    exit Cantal 
    Kelvin: Was it Cantal that set the fire? 
    Messenger: No, sir. Cantal's army hasn't moved from the northern hills yet. It 
    seems that the monsters and ruffians have entered the city. 
    Kelvin: A disgrace... Hahn Nova destroyed by the likes of monsters... 
    Philippe: Father, please calm yourself. Look at our soldiers. They are in no 
    condition to fight. 
    Kelvin: Hmm, their hearts are already in Jade... 
    Philippe: I will go in your stead.

    father's orders!? 
    Philippe: I cannot abandon my citizens while they face an undeserved death!!

    Soldier 2: We're going to be caught in the fire if we stay too long! 
    Soldier 3: Blast! We're surrounded by monsters!!

    the tower. From the top of the tower, we should be able to climb above the 
    branches of this deep forest and scan the surrounding area.  
    Rich: A tower, huh? At this point, the tower might already have collapsed. And 
    even if it's still intact, is it guaranteed to be taller than this forest?  
    Eleanor: If that happens, I'll have you climb up a tree instead! 
    Patrick: What in the world are we looking for, Eleanor? 
    Eleanor: It's a long story if I try to explain. Just find the tower and then 
    I'll tell you. 
    Raymond: Okay, okay. You always get your way.

    Narcisse: Rich, what I'm about to say, you must not tell anyone else. Do you
    swear upon your name and your father's name to keep this oath? 
    Rich: If you ask me to swear it, I will, but on my honor, not my father's name.
    Narcisse: Very well. I need you to go to a certain island and bring back the 
    seeds of a tree that grows there.  
    Rich: Just hearing that, it sounds like an easy job. Why don't you do it on 
    your own?  
    Narcisse: I've become too old. I doubt I could go to the island and come back 
    alive. That's why I'm entrusting it to you. You will go alone, and you must not 
    tell anybody else. Am I clear? Your reward will be based on how many seeds you 
    bring back.  
    Rich: Travelling alone, huh? Oh well, shouldn't be a problem. 
    Bartender (from behind the counter): If you go down the Anath River, there is a

    The Egg must either be destroyed, or it must be discarded some place where no 
    human can get to it.

    destroyed regardless.

    Rich: Then no. I knew you'd say that. I'll never tell you.

    is no longer the person you once knew.

    Water Tower 
    enter Julia 
    enter Rich 
    Julia: Look, Rich. During the ancient empire, water gushed out of all of these 
    awe-inspiring towers, and the surrounding lands were covered with green. But 
    now, this is what's left. This is my homeland.  
    Look over here, Rich. 
    Throughout my childhood, I remember looking upon this mural...and seeing many 
    dreams. Dreams that one day, water will fall upon this land, like a magnificent 
    waterfall. In my favorite lullaby, a rainbow is cast from that water. 
    Rich: Okay, leave it to me. I'll cast that rainbow over the sky for you!! 
    But with that said, it'll be a bit hard without getting some clues. Let's start 
    looking around. 
    Westia, A town where the Quell-seekers gather 
    Man: What are you doing here? Is there something you need? 
    Rich: Do you know anything about the Water Tower? 
    Man: Since it's a large facility, it's easy to imagine that it requires the aid 
    of Quells, but alone, they probably won't suffice. Setting up the Quell by 
    itself will just end up splashing water everywhere uncontrollably. It is likely 
    that a support mechanism to control waterflow exists somewhere in the tower. I 
    just suggest you look carefully. 
    Eleanor: Oh, if it isn't Rich. 
    Rich: Ah, Eleanor. You're just the one I needed to see. Do you know anything 
    about the ruins of the Water Tower? 
    Eleanor: What's this, so suddenly? I'm not a walking encyclopedia, you know. 
    Rich: Yes, you have far more experience than any ordinary encyclopedia. 
    Eleanor: Yeah, probably. Rich, you've become pretty good with your flattery. 
    That tower was used to dispense water with a water Quell. That's all.  
    Rich: Hey hey, even I can picture that. Since there's no water, that means that 
    the Quell has been lost, right? 
    Eleanor: If the tower's mechanism is damaged, it probably won't work, even if 
    you have the Quell. When the ancient empire fell, many of the Water Towers were 
    destroyed as well. It's a stupid story, isn't it? They've destroyed everything, 
    including things that benefit their own people. 
    Rich: That means that we need two things: the water Quell and an undamaged 
    Eleanor: Rich, what are you trying to do? 
    Rich: I'm going to revive the tower. For Julia's sake. 
    Eleanor: Julia? Whatever happened to Diana from North Gate? 
    Rich: What about you? Who's the guy? Are you trying to leech off a young man?

    Narrator: Cantal, the Marquis of Otto, struggles for supremacy against Kelvin, 
    and finally conquers the Merchmin Region. However, in 1288, nineteen years 
    after Gustave's death, his Anima leaves his body. He is 59.  
    His kingdom is divided among so many of his offspring that it loses any 
    influence it once had.  
    Narrator: Kelvin takes the opportunity to advance into the Lordless Land. He 
    gathers lords at Hahn Nova and successfully forms a pact to finally establish 
    Narrator: Kelvin finally obtains glory at the age of 67.  
    Laubholz, Stronghold of Duke Edmund of Laubholz 
    enter Duke Edmund, minister, general 
    Minister: Your Excellency, I am opposed to meeting with the daughter of Cantal 
    at a delicate time like this. What are we to do if the Count of Jade finds us!? 
    Duke Edmund: The Count of Jade will not be able to touch us out here. And I 
    hear that this daughter of Cantal, Nicolette, has inherited much land. I am 
    still unmarried, you know. 
    General: Your Excellency! I must humbly ask that you do not make any rash 
    promises, tempted by strange motives. 
    enter Nicolette 
    Nicolette: Greetings, Your Excellency; I gather that you are in excellent 
    spirits. I am at a loss for words at being granted the honor of an audience for 
    the first time. My name is Nicolette Drangueforde. I believe things will flow 
    much more smoothly if I mention that I am the daughter of the late Cantal.  
    Duke Edmund: Lady Nicolette, let us do away with the stiff formalities. We are 
    both young, so we shall speak to each other openly. 
    Nicolette: Thank you. I shall accept your kind offer. Duke Edmund, do you have 
    no intention of advancing into the plains? Are you going to spend the rest of 
    your reign in this remote southern region? 
    Minister: Lady Nicolette! How rude to call our lands remote! 
    Nicolette: Having vassals that only pick up on trivial matters like this will 
    leave you unable to make important decisions. To begin with, who is this Kelvin 
    that is currently taking control of the plains? He is only the Count of Jade. 
    He was once Lord Gustave's closest ally, but does that give him the right to 
    rule over Gustave's lands? A ruler must have the proper qualifications. The 
    Count of Jade was insignificant when my father was still alive. Minister, 
    please forgive the rude comments I made earlier. Do you think that Laubholz is 
    inferior to Jade? 
    Minister: No. Our country has plenty of resources. 
    Nicolette: General, do you think that His Excellency is inferior to the Count 
    of Jade? 
    General: No. His Excellency is a very wise master. He is much younger, and has 
    more vigor than the Count of Jade.  
    Nicolette: Then why do you not stand up to claim the rightful rule of 
    Laubholz!? As powerless as I am compared to my father, I believe that I can be 
    of service to Your Excellency.  
    Duke Edmund: Lady Nicolette, why are you so concerned about the Count of Jade? 
    Nicolette: It is because I do not think that the Count of Jade and his heir are 
    worthy to rule the Eastern Continent.  
    Duke Edmund: Your point is well taken.  
    Nicolette: Thank you for your patience in listening to my petty ramblings. If I 
    may be excused, I will take my leave now.  
    exit Nicolette 
    General: We must prepare the troops for battle at once! 
    Minister: I must begin arrangements to gather funds and supplies!! 
    Duke Edmund: Hmm, those two are completely motivated now. But, I wouldn't like 
    to marry a girl who's that feisty. 
    Gruegel, Southern Continent, the capital of Na 
    Nicolette: Your Majesty, it has been a long time since I saw you last.  
    King Sho of Na: Oh, if it isn't Nicolette. Welcome, welcome. Come here. 
    Come closer. 
    Nicolette: I am relieved to see that you are well, Your Majesty.  
    King Sho of Na: 'Your Majesty' is so formal. Call me what you used to call me. 
    Nicolette: Well then, Grandfather Sho, I have come to inquire about something.  
    King Sho of Na: Yes, yes. I shall answer any question for you. 
    Nicolette: Grandfather, why do you permit the Count of Jade to do as he 
    pleases? Is not the Count of Jade one of your vassals? 
    King Sho of Na: Yes, but in form only. Also, Kelvin has treated me with ample 
    courtesy and respect. 
    Nicolette: It may be so, while Lord Kelvin is still alive. However, you don't 
    know what attitude the next Count of Jade will have. Additionally, I know I 
    shouldn't think this, but what will become of this country when you are no 
    longer around, Grandfather Sho? 
    King Sho of Na: ...After Kelvin... ...After me... 
    Nicolette: I could not bear seeing you and your loving family suffer. I believe 
    it would be best to prevent that suffering by doing something about it now. 
    King Sho of Na: Possibly.  
    Nicolette: I greatly appreciate the time you have spent listening to a foreign 
    girl like me. I look forward to visiting Gruegel once again. 
    King Sho of Na: Think of this place as your home. I have always viewed you as a

    Nicolette: My name is Nicolette, daughter of the Marquis of Otto, Cantal.  
    Attendant 1: How old have you become, Miss Nicolette? 
    Nicolette: I am fifteen this year. I have been sent here by my father to learn 
    proper etiquette from the Court of Na. 
    Attendant 2: Oh, how young. How I envy you! 
    Attendant 3: Speaking of Lord Cantal, he is widely known to be blessed with 
    children. I hear he is the father of about twenty. He must be really amazing. 
    Nicolette: What is it about my father that is amazing? 
    Attendant 1: Hehehehe 
    Attendant 2: Ahahahaha 
    Nicolette: ????? 
    Attendant 2: You are really so young. 
    enter Charles, minister, general 
    Attendant 2: Oh, it is Sir Charles, son of the Count of Jade. That makes him 
    your enemy, correct? 
    Nicolette: Greetings, I am Nicolette, daughter of Cantal, the Marquis of Otto. 
    I am delighted to make your acquaintance. 
    Charles: Hey, doesn't it stink around here? 
    Minister: Pardon? 
    Charles: I smell a dog. I smell the whelp of a dog that's always in heat. 
    General: Yes, it certainly smells like an ill-bred animal.

    and look for my father. If you ask for Richard's father, there's no one in Wide

    Misty: A little of this, a little of that. I've just come to try something out. 
    I didn't come here to see you.

    child. Get away from here now.

    saying I don't want to... 
    Fine. I'll do as you say but you'll have to tell me why. 
    Rich: I can't really explain myself. Dad can explain a lot better. If you say
    its about the Egg, he'll know.

    Hahn Nova, Kelvin's camp 
    Charles: Philippe, where is father? 
    Philippe: He's on the terrace. He's quite concerned about the summons from King
    Charles: He should just ignore them. 
    Philippe: You can't just do that, big brother. It may just be a formality, but
    the House of Jade is still a vasssal of the country of Na. Father has always 
    shown the utmost courtesy to both King Sui and King Sho. 
    Charles: But as of now, we have the power to compete against them. They're
    getting cocky about our humility. 
    That geezer needs to be taught a lesson. 
    Philippe: Brother, your words are harsh. 
    Charles: You and father are both too soft! 
    Narrator: In the meantime, the Laubholz army led by Edmund crosses Grand Valley.
    Charles: Father, we should rout the likes of the Duke of Laubholz.
    Kelvin: But I must go to Gruegel. I cannot disobey King Sho's orders.
    Philippe: There are lords that have already given up on the pact. Father, if
    you leave, the pact will surely crumble. 
    Kelvin: ... 
    Charles: I will go to Gruegel as your representative. Father, please stay 
    behind and stand against Laubholz's army. Would that be acceptable, father? 
    Kelvin: Very well. Charles, make sure you are not disrespectful to the King. 
    Charles: Certainly. 
    Philippe, failure is not an option. 
    Philippe: I understand, brother.

    Two years later, in the year 1292, the Anima of Kelvin, Count of Jade, leaves 
    his body for the eternal plains. He is 71. His life has been one long,

    you? What's your intent? What's your real purpose!? 
    Misty: You're correct. I've taken a little bit of Anima from all of them. I'll 
    ask you otherwise. What's your reason for living, Knights? 
    Rich: What do you mean, reason...? 
    Misty: I live for my own pleasure. These things called humans are incomplete 
    and puny little beings. Just taking away a little bit of their Anima almost 
    makes them die. Controlling Animas and Quells takes effort and creativity. That 
    makes it fun. Don't interfere with my pleasure.

    Misty: I've created a Quell that gathers Anima and puts it into another object. 
    I wonder if it'll revive something that lost its Anima a long time ago?

    Counselor 1: I hear another rebellion in Lord Gustave's name has begun. 
    David: It's not a rebellion, Counselor. It's just a bunch of bandits. They've 
    already been destroyed. 
    General 1: Even so, the eastern part of the Lordless Land has had far too many 
    bandits and rebellions. It proves that Lord Charles has not yet established 
    himself as a leader. 
    David: Quite the contrary, General. I believe many are actually inciting these 
    activities, including the Duke of Laubholz. Once the Jade family has 
    established legitimate control, peace and order will eventually be restored. 
    General 1: But David, there are many that do not desire the Count of Jade to be 
    in control. Lord Kelvin was the one who abandoned Hahn Nova. 
    David: Please, Minister, do not insult my grandfather. The other lords also 
    withdrew from Hahn Nova. More importantly, I believe we should discuss the 
    future, rather than the past. 
    General 2: My lord's only intention is to stop these skirmishes. 
    Counselor 2: But the Jade's presence on the eastern bank of the Anath River 
    threatens the safety of our country. 
    David: My father, Charles, does not want a war, either. However, he does have a 
    duty to carry out Lord Gustave's and Lord Kelvin's wishes. 
    General 2: Regardless, we require a more secure measure, by outlining... 
    Counselor 2: As long as Lord Charles will not retract his demands, it is 
    Counselor 1: It's a conspiracy by Na! 
    General 1: Laubholz cannot and will not surrender any of its territory!

    Noble: What did Sir David have to say? 
    Charles: It's the same as always. You can't solve this through negotiation. I 
    think he misunderstands my intentions. He actually believes I want to have 
    peace negotiations. He'll buy me time to strengthen my position as the leader 
    of the Lordless Land. Maybe I should call him back here to tell him a thing or 
    two. He's just like father. He knows nothing of politics.

    supplies. On top of that, it's been communicating with the neighboring minor 
    lords, and has begun gathering troops.

    with him.

    can object to that. Those elders have made a grave mistake by refusing to give

    You imbecile, sleeping on the job! I'll sell you off, instead of that girl! 
    Pirate 1: Captain, forgive me~ 
    Primiera: Looks like we've arrived. Once you're ashore, you won't have to 
    listen to them. Now let's go! 
    enter Ginny, Primiera, and pirates, captain 
    Captain: Stop where you are! 
    Primiera: I'm on land now. I have nothing to do with you.  
    Captain: Technically, that is true, but as sailors, we can't just let you walk 
    all over our honor. You fooled us by sending off that boat. Give us the girl, 
    and we'll forgive you.  
    enter Roberto 
    Primiera: I've done nothing that needs forgiving in the first place. 
    Roberto: Wait up, wait up! All of you, just calm down.  
    Primiera: I don't need any help in dealing with people like this. Don't 
    underestimate me because I'm a woman.  
    Pirate 1: Who do you think you are? Keep your nose out of this. 
    Roberto: Hey, the great Roberto was just offering his assistance as a mediator. 
    So what's with the attitude? You got a problem!? 
    Captain: Hey, take it easy. This is the lowdown on the situation. That girl 
    stowed away on our ship, and we lost our boat. That's why we can't just let her 
    Primiera: Then I will pay for the boat. It is true I lowered it off. However, 
    you all inadvertently brought the child. You should have just thrown her 
    overboard, as you originally intended.  
    Roberto: She is right, you know? If she gets on land, she's made it. Just take 
    the money for the loss of the boat.  
    Captain: Oh, alright. 
    1305 Ginny's Adventure 
    Ginny: Where are we? 
    Primiera: We're at the North Gate. 
    Ginny: It's not Thermes? 
    Primiera: This is the gateway to the Northern Continent, North Gate. 
    Ginny: I was planning to go to Thermes... 
    Primiera: You have no money. You stowed away on the wrong boat. You should've 
    stayed home, like your grandfather told you. 
    Roberto: Now, now, don't be too harsh. Running away after her grandpa is very 
    brave of her. I'm Roberto. I make my living around here. And you, my little 
    Ginny: Virginia. Everyone calls me Ginny. 
    Roberto: So, you're Ginny. What a sweet name. Don't worry, just leave it to me! 
    Primiera: I suggest you at least pay your own passage to Thermes.  
    Ginny: I know that. You don't have to tell me.  
    Primiera: Really? Then you would care to pay me back the boat fee that I paid 
    to the captain? How do you suppose a young girl like you is going to make any 
    Roberto: Whoa, whoa, you're pretty harsh. By the way, what's your name?  
    Primiera: Primiera. You seem to know the area pretty well. Would you care to 
    guide us?  
    Roberto: That depends on your skills. The Northern Continent's full of hairy 
    places, you know. On the other hand, that's why there's room to make money, 
    too. Now, let's go to the inn for the time being.

    lovely young ladies. There's even two of them!

    Roberto: This is Gustaf. He's my partner. He's not much for conversation, but 
    he can be pretty handy.  
    Primiera: Gustaf... Have we met before? 
    Gustaf: No... 
    Primiera: Hey, show me around. Travelling on the boat has really stiffened up 
    my muscles.  
    Roberto: You want to come too, Ginny?  
    Ginny: Sure. I am a digger, after all.

    Gustaf: It can be a good thing not to have anything happening. 
    Ginny: How old are you, Gustaf? You're acting like a geezer. 
    Primiera: That's true. You do have a rather old head on your young shoulders. 
    What kind of life style have you been following all these years? 
    Gustaf: I've always been like this. 
    enter Roberto 
    Ginny: Hey, Robertooo, you have anything interesting to offer? I feel like I'm 
    wasting my youth, sitting here doing nothing everyday. 
    Roberto: How about this... Out in the wilderness, there are several 
    settlements. Apparently, near one of them, there's supposed to be a Megalith.  
    Ginny: Megalith! Let's go there! 
    Gustaf: If it really is a Megalith, isn't it a bit too dangerous?  
    Roberto: Well, you'll never know if the rumor's true or not unless you go check 
    it out.  
    Primiera: Wait just a minute. What's this "Megalith" you're talking about? 
    Ginny: Ohhh, you don't know, Primiera? If you want, I'll explain it to you. 
    Primiera: Will you explain it to me, Ginny? 
    Ginny: Heh! Okay, here goes. A Megalith is an artifact from long, long ago. 
    It's not like the Ruins of Hahn. It's even older than that. Also, it's not very 
    well understood. But it has a lot of power. It's like a giant Quell.  
    Primiera: That's a rather vague explanation, isn't it? 
    Ginny: But it's true! I heard it from grandpa. 
    Roberto: As Ginny explained, it's basically something that's not well 
    Primiera: I guess it means we'll have to go, then. 
    Ginny: See, you understand! Now, let's go! 
    You're not planning on going, Gustaf? Are you afraid of the Megalith? 
    Gustaf: No, it's not that. Alright, I'll go. 
    Lady: Here, drink this. 
    Isn't it refreshing? It's fresh water taken from a nearby spring. Very good for 
    your health and beauty! 
    Roberto: We've heard that there's supposedly a ruin of a Megalith around here.  
    Lady: Yes, there is such a place. Are you thinking of going there?  
    Ginny: Of course!! 
    Lady: A young girl like you, huh? I think it's best to quit right now. A long 
    time ago, another young woman also went in, but she never came back. 
    Roberto: The disappearance of a beautiful girl... Smells like something's going 
    Ginny: How can you tell she's a beautiful girl? 
    Roberto: She said she was a young girl, right? Then it's a given that she's a

    Wil: Ginny, your mother is worried sick. You're a bad girl. 
    Ginny: I'm sorry, I'm sorry. But I really, really wanted to go on the trip. 
    Wil: Think about your mother's feelings. I'm far too old, and I haven't much 
    time ahead of me. If something happens to you, your mother will truly be alone. 
    Ginny: Uh huh, I know. But I'm a digger, too. 
    Wil: I guess you do have the Knights blood in you. Grandpa's going back to 
    Thermes. I want you to come with me. It'd probably be better than leaving you 
    on your own. 
    Ginny: Alright!! 
    Roberto: Uhhh, sir, would it be possible for me to accompany you, also? 
    Wil: Who might you be? 
    Ginny: He's Roberto. Over here is Gustaf, and then Primiera. They looked after 
    Wil: Is that so? Well, I express my gratitude for looking out for my

    Gustaf: Thermes, eh...?

    Primiera: To Thermes...? 
    Roberto: What's with you two? You are both being unusually indecisive.

    Wil: Well, let's get moving, Ginny. 
    Roberto: Let's go, Gustaf. 
    Gustaf: Fine. 
    Roberto: What will you do, Primiera?

    be Tycoon Wil's granddaughter. Nice to meet you. 
    Ventarbre: Greetings, Tycoon Wil. I'm delighted to see you in good health. 
    Wil: The same to you, Ven. So what tidings do you have for me? 
    Ventarbre: As I am sure you are aware, ever since the death of Lord Gustave, 
    there have been many who claim to be the lord's heir. Of course, they were all 
    imposters. From rebellious nobles to  ruffians and thieves, many are using the
    lord's name to justify their actions. It is a very sad situation. Lately, 
    another one of these men has announced his name as Gustave and has been 
    gathering forces. There are many curious rumors about this man, which are part 
    of the reason for his growing popularity. One of these is a rumor about an egg-
    shaped Quell.  
    Wil: Egg-shaped Quell! Is it...... The Egg...... 
    Ventarbre: That is what I wanted you to confirm, Tycoon Wil. If the Egg is as 
    dangerous as I've heard from you before, then this man will have to be 
    defeated, no matter what it takes. 
    Wil: Hmm, so the Egg is using Lord Gustave's name to its advantage... That is a 
    possibility. It might have realized that the strength of human beings is not 
    within the individual... In any case, I must somehow get close to this Fake 
    Gustave. Where is he now? 
    Ventarbre: In Hahn Nova. 
    Wil: Very well. I will head to Hahn Nova immediately.  
    Ventarbre: I have one more favor to ask of you. May I ask you to take my 
    apprentice along on your journey?  
    Meythia: My name is Meythia, currently apprenticed to Master Ventarbre. It is 
    an honor to meet you.  
    Wil: It will be a very risky journey. Are you sure you want to let her go? 
    Ventarbre: Yes, for this will be part of her training.

    fear that the Count of Jade will order his men to hunt down any opposers. Will 
    we be alright? 
    Citizen 2: Believe in Master Gustave. 
    Citizen 1: Yes... 
    Would it not be better to hand that man over to the Count of Jade?

    Messenger: Our army was defeated near the outskirts of Hahn Nova and...Master 
    Charles has fallen in battle.

    Counselor 2: David... excuse me, Lord David, you should return home as soon as 
    possible. We will adjourn the meeting until you return.  
    Counselor 3: This is dreadful. 
    General 1: We have no choice but to adjourn. 
    Counselor 1: We must come up with some countermeasure! 
    David: Please, wait. 
    I was sent to this peace conference for the sake of my father. I have not 
    fulfilled my duty yet. And also, I wish to gather everyone here to obtain a 
    consensus. We must subdue this vile imposter at once. I hear there is a 
    collection of discontents supporting the impostor. I know none of you have any 
    desire to see the Lordless Land overrun by such people. Come, let us continue 
    this peace conference. Let us come to a swift conclusion and eliminate this 
    impostor with our united armies. 
    General 1: I agree. If we don't stabilize the situation, we will not be able to 
    stop others like them. 
    Counselor 1: Indeed. If we don't act fast, the uprising may spread to other 
    David: Then I will make my proposal as the Count of Jade. I forfeit my claim to 
    the territories of Hahn Nova.  
    General 2: Are you absolutely sure, Lord David? 
    David: Yes. Only the previous Count of Jade was so attached to Hahn. However, I 
    cannot allow Hahn to make ties with any particular power. Hahn's cities will be 
    free, and I will want all the lords participating in this conference to form an

    pay off what they get.

    Laubholz's southern army. The imposter awaits the return of the force which 
    dispatched the northern army.  
    Roberto: So you're saying that they'll be staring at each other again today? 
    Primiera: No, the imposter will make his move soon. The Duke of Laubholz should 
    arrive tomorrow. If that happens, they won't stand a chance. 
    Roberto: You're awfully well-informed, Primiera. 
    Hey you're right. The impostor's army is beginning to move. They're finally 
    going for the showdown. But will the Count of Jade be able to win?

    Roberto: There's a war going on. What can one person do? 
    enter Ventarbre, Primiera 
    Gustaf: I ignored my father's dying wishes once and abandoned my home. But this 
    time, I won't do that. I'm going to protect David.  
    Ventarbre: Wait. You will be fighting the steel soldiers. It would be better to 
    use this sword, instead of your Firebrand.  
    Gustaf: How do you know about the Firebrand? 
    Ventarbre: I worked closely with Lord Gustave. Your grandfather, Lord Kelvin, 
    and your father, Master Phillippe, I know them both well. Additionally, I was 
    one of the witnesses at your Firebrand Ceremony. 
    Gustaf: I see; that explains it. What is that sword? 
    Ventarbre: This is Lord Gustave's personal sword, which he forged himself. I 
    have long sought a worthy successor for this sword. I wanted to pass this sword 
    to your father and my personal friend, Phillippe. Unfortunately, he was lost 
    before I could fulfill that wish. Now, I leave it to you, young Gustave. 
    Gustaf: Lord Gustave's sword... Thank you, Master Ventarbre. There is no other 
    weapon more suited to and appropriate for stopping the steel soldiers.  
    exit Gustaf 
    Roberto: He's gone. 
    Primiera, what's wrong? Don't tell me you're going, too...? 
    Primiera: This is their battle. I...I've stopped living for tradition or pride 
    of the family. That is why I won't go. But why do I get this uncontrollable 
    feeling that I must do something!? 
    enter Primiera 
    Nicolette: Wait right there! 
    enter Nicolette 
    Nicolette: Primiera, where do you think you are going? 
    Primiera: I am leaving this house.  
    Nicolette: Don't say such foolish things. Are you going to follow the same 
    ludicrous path as our gutless brothers? Only you can carry on the Otto family 
    name, Primiera. You are the daughter of Cantal. Be proud of yourself.  
    Primiera: Stepmother, I, too, have great respect for father. And I am also 
    thankful for your kindness. As his last born child, I understand that I was 
    neglected by father. For half a year, I was left alone, not even given a name. 
    To such a miserable soul, I know that you, Stepmother Nicolette, were the kind 
    of soul that brought me to his attention, raised me as your adopted daughter, 
    and named me Primiera. Dear stepmother, you never told me this yourself. You 
    must have wanted me not to think poorly of our father. But still, I cannot live 
    the way you have raised me. 
    Nicolette: When one learns the burden of responsibility, one becomes 
    discouraged at first. You'll be fine. All you need to do is overcome the 
    discouragement. That is what becoming an adult means. 
    Primiera: No, it's not that... Did your actions change anything, stepmother? 
    What was the result of your conspiracies, running around the world spreading 
    hatred for Jade? It was only warfare. Your pride, dear stepmother, gave birth 
    to unnecessary wars and the loss of many Animas. 
    I'm sorry. I've said terrible things to you... I know I have no right to deny 
    you your way of life.

    the two most powerful weapons in the world. Right, Master Ven?

    Gustaf: Yes. Even his trusted Edelritters have vanished.  
    Roberto: Hah! They probably high-tailed it out of here. The leaders usually are 
    the first ones to run. Only underlings die. 
    Ventarbre: We have to find him somehow. He may raise more troops again.  
    Wil: I don't think we need to worry about that. The Egg never does the same 
    thing twice. It will probably try something new. Anyway, I intend to go after 
    the Egg.

    1305 Battle of South Moundtop 
    Narrator: Troops begin to gather under Gustave after his victory against Count
    Charles of Jade.
    Meanwhile, the various lords sign a provisional treaty and form an allied army,
    with the new Count of Jade, David, as the central figure. They approach Hahn
    Nova from the north, south, and west.
    Gustave's army confronts the western army, the primary force, while the troops
    under Bolse's command intercept the relatively weaker northern army.
    Bolse's army skillfully destroys the southern army. Gustave's strategy goes as
    planned up to this point.
    However, Bolse's army risks pursuit, despite orders. Their return to Hahn Nova
    is delayed.
    Upon Bolse's return, Gustave makes a plan to use his entire army to strike at
    the center of the alliance, the western army under the command of David.
    But Bolse's army does not return from the pursuit, and the southern army draws 
    close to Hahn Nova first. 
    At this point, Gustave decides to commit his current forces. In summer 1305, 
    the most renowned historical event, the Battle of South Moundtop, begins. 
    (battle of South Moundtop ensues) 
    (end of battle) 
    Narrator: After the Battle of South Moundtop, the lords gather at Hahn Nova. 
    The lords meet for the official signing of the peace treaty. The lords and 
    independent cities across the world sign  this treaty. This treaty becomes 
    known as the Hahn Nova Treaty, after the location in which it was signed. 
    Narrator: After signing the treaty, the notable lords give their speeches. To 
    this day, the speech of David, Count of Jade, the central figure of the treaty, 
    remains in the hearts of the people. 
    enter David 
    David: My people, we have finally reached this day. From all over the world 
    people have gathered to work hand in hand to achieve our peace. Yet much sweat 
    and tears have been shed, the Animas of many have been lost. We must not forget 
    their precious sacrifices.  
    This peace we have today, we owe to the hardships and efforts of our 
    predecessors, especially the founder of this city of Hahn Nova, Gustave the 
    Steel. He has brought upon us a new era of steel and artistry. Among all of 
    you, there might be those that look upon Lord Gustave as the disrupter of 
    order, the summoner of battles and of confusion. Yet what Lord Gustave has 
    taught us is that we humans can become whatever we seek with our own will. He 
    has proven to us that what people are or what they become is not determined by 
    their birth or Anima. 
    And also, there were many around Lord Gustave who supported him throughout his 
    endeavors. Even such a great man as Lord Gustave needed the aid of friends, 
    trustworthy comrades who helped him achieve his goals. As for us, we will need 
    even further cooperation among ourselves. 
    Ideally, my father Charles would have been the one standing here today. I will 
    swear to utilize all of my resources to uphold and defend this treaty. 
    exit David 
    Narrator: True to his words, David defends the treaty to the end. During the 
    fifty years until his Anima returns to nature, the treaty lives on. Many have 
    named this period the "Peace of David". His name was praised throughout the 
    thousand years that followed.

    Wil: The interior of the Northern Continent is a vast unexplored region. There 
    could be some kind of hideout there.

    Wood Lord: Who would have thought you'd make it this far? You should've known 
    your limitations. Soon, we Edelritters will become one with his Anima. You will 
    also be a part of the merger! 
    (optional battle) 
    Ginny: That person's on fire! 
    Sargon: I knew you'd come, Knights. It's as the Egg had sensed it. 
    Ginny: He knows! This isn't goo~d. 
    Sargon: My Anima will be one with the Egg. Let me tell you something before I 
    vanquish you all.  
    Ginny: What are you... 
    Sargon: Those who had left behind the Megaliths and Quells, they all perished 
    long ago. However, they fought against their fate and sealed their own Animas 
    into powerful Quells and planned eventually to return to this world. They 
    waited for an existence to appear that had the wisdom and Anima to pull them 
    out of the Quells. Time moved on, and humans came into the world. The ancients 
    returned at the hands of humans with wisdom and Anima. 
    Ginny: Then...they are just ghosts of the past. No different than ghouls. 
    Sargon: That's right. They are meant to perish. They cannot be in the same 
    world as humans.  
    Ginny: You know that, then why do you do this? Let's defeat that thing 
    Sargon: That's not possible. I must pay for the power I have gained. We must 
    perish, as well. 
    Ginny: No... 
    Sargon: Enough talk. Now is the time for action! 
    (battle with Fire Lord ensues) 
    (end of battle) 
    Ginny: Why... 
    Note: The following dialogue will appear if Wil, Ginny, Gustaf and Roberto are 
    in your party. 
    Wil: What is this place? 
    Roberto: There's no footing. Are we flying? 
    Gustaf: Is this a trap set by the Egg? 
    Ginny: It feels so serene for some reason. Such a mysterious feeling... 
    Wil: The Egg! Here it comes! Let's finish it once and for all! 
    Roberto: Can we defeat this thing... Dammit, we have no choice! 
    Gustaf: The Firebrand...It's resonating with the Egg! Can I put my faith in 
    you, Firebrand? 
    Ginny: Papa... Mama... Grandpa... Everybody... Resist the Egg! 
    (battle with the Egg ensues) 
    (end of battle) 
    enter Ginny, Wil, Gustaf, Primiera, Meythia, Roberto 
    Ginny: No... No, this isn't happening... 
    Roberto: What's wrong, Ginny? Too tired to run? 
    Wil: Stay away from the Egg! Touch it, and it will consume your Anima. 
    Roberto: But we can't just leave it like this. 
    Primiera: Why has it grown so big? 
    Meythia: It's probably because of the Megalith's power.  
    Primiera: Then it has already succeeded. That is regrettable. Then that battle 
    was all for nothing? 
    Ginny: Can't we destroy this, grandpa? Isn't there anything we can do? 
    Wil: Ginny, I don't even know what to do. 
    Roberto: Gustaf! What're you doing!? Stop! 
    Wil: Lord Gustave's sword... It, too, has failed... 
    Ginny: Wait! There's a crack in the Egg!! 
    We did it... 
    Roberto: Are you alright, Gustaf? 
    Gustaf: I'm fine. But the sword is broken... 
    Primiera: I guess it's the end of this nightmare. 
    Meythia: Tycoon Wil, what's wrong? Do you feel ill from the gas? 
    Ginny: Grandpa, are you crying? 
    Wil: Many, many Animas were released. The Animas of everyone that was trapped 
    by the Egg... Father's Anima, as well... 
    Ginny: Great grandpa's, right? Uh huh, I felt it, too. They can finally return 
    to the earth, water, and the trees. 
    Wil: Yes, that's right. Everyone returns to there, eventually... It's finally 
    Let's go home.

    crumbles after the battle with the Egg. 
    B) Following the Egg 
    First of all, let us consider the Egg, and what it is. We know that it is a 
    powerful Quell of some sort. Perhaps even with the strength of a Megalith, but 
    smaller. What does it do? Well, according to its previous possessors, it seems 
    to be good at consuming Anima. But in exchange, it gives its possessor 
    unimaginable power and knowledge. In a way, it is similar to the Ice Megalith 
    and the Firebrand, in that they all give power to the possessor, but at a 
    price. So what's the difference? There is none. One just has to have good 
    judgment and sense. One should realize that power is not always good, as having 
    too much is uncontrollable, malignant, or not always meaningful. The latter two 
    have measures that prevent such things from happening, as the Ice Megalith 
    itself is dangerous, and discourages people from entering it (well, most 
    people), and the Firebrand burns those whose Animas are not worthy. The Egg, 
    however, seems not to have this protective measure. Instead, it draws the 
    unwary possessor even further into it, and the Egg continues to consume the 
    possessor's Anima, making it stronger and stronger. But it seems the Egg always 
    has a strict course--it is strongly opposed to the Knights family. Sometimes, 
    it runs from Wil, other times, it tries to kill him. It's as if the Egg itself 
    has a life of its own, and that it wants to continue to consume Anima, but if 
    there are those such as the Knights who try to stop it, then it will try to 
    stop them.  
    It's not easy to trace where the Egg goes without playing the game several 
    times. However, there are many hints provided in most of Wil's scenarios that 
    indicate what happens to the Egg. However, there are still a few ambiguous 
    details in question.  
    To begin with, the Egg started off in the Desert Megalith. As noted in the 
    Desert Megalith scenario, Henry Knights went with the three Sergein brothers to 
    the Desert Megalith. After they return, only the Sergein brothers go back to 
    the Megalith. They return with the Egg, which we can safely assume was the 
    mysterious object in the lead box. After the middle Sergein brother possessed 
    the Egg (or rather, became possessed by the Egg) the Vogelang citizens also 
    note that Henry realized that the Sergein brother's Anima was stolen by the Egg 
    Quell. Because steel resists Anima, he took all the steel tools and flung them 
    at the Sergein brother. He drops the Egg of course, but we don't exactly know 
    where it goes from there. It eventually ends back up in Alexei's hands. I would 
    presume, that after the Sergein brother loses the Egg, Henry might have taken 
    it to prevent others from making the same mistake of trying to possess the Egg. 
    There are several possibilities: Henry Knights lost the Egg to Alexei, probably 
    because he murdered him and his wife. This is what Wil believes to be true. Or, 
    if Alexei is not lying, then Henry Knights, after possessing the Egg, could 
    have had his Anima consumed by the Egg. Seeing that something was wrong, his 
    wife, Catherine could have tried to kill Henry to prevent him from doing 
    terrible things (as we see quite later). Then, either she picked up the Egg, 
    and it consumed her Anima, and Alexei found it, or Alexei killed her and stole 
    the Egg. Of the two choices, we don't know which it is because the game does 
    not dwell on those details. 
    Update: After the Last Battle with the Egg, if you still have Wil, he notes 
    that his father's (Henry's) Anima was consumed by the Egg: "The Animas of 
    everyone that was trapped by the Egg... Father's Anima, as well..."  
    This indicates that Henry may have tried to stop the Egg, but his Anima was 
    consumed in the process, and therefore, Catherine saw it fitting to destroy him 
    in order to stop the Egg. Knowing that Henry's Anima was consumed by the Egg, 
    Henry would no longer be himself. 
    Afterwards, Alexei possesses the Egg until Wil finds him, and kills him. Then 
    we will assume that the Egg is lying somewhere near the bottom of the quarry, 
    but as Wil notes, the Egg is still around. We learn later on, that the Egg is 
    in the Anima Faith Followers' possession. We can assume that someone must have 
    found the Egg at the bottom of the quarry, or that the Egg, as a Quell, had the 
    power to move out of the quarry, to a location where someone would find it. But 
    we wouldn't be surprised if the Anima Faith Followers were to be interested in 
    the Egg. As a Quell, it would probably have a great magnitude of Anima, and 
    even more, after consuming the Animas of previous possessors. 
    Then, according to Wil's scenario, the priest loses the Egg and falls into a 
    pool in the Ruins of Hahn. We don't know if this pool is connected to any other 
    body of water, but we should consider the two cases, as to how it ends up in 
    the pirates' hands: 
    If the pool is connected to any other body of water, such as a river, then the 
    Egg could have eventually washed out to the river, and then out to sea, where 
    the pirates could have found it floating, they might have netted it while 
    fishing, or it could have washed ashore where they anchored their ship. 
    If the pool is not connected to any other body of water, then perhaps another 
    Anima Follower or one of Gustave's Soldiers found it. If that is the case, then 
    we should also consider how either of those two people would end up giving away 
    the Egg to a pirate. Or, they became pirates themselves. But seeing that the 
    latter case is too ambiguous and farfetched, the first case would seem more 
    In the pirates' possession, still following Wil's scenarios, the Egg is sunk to 
    the bottom of the ocean. We later learn that the next possessor of the Egg is a 
    young girl, Misty. So how would she have possession of the Egg? Even if the Egg 
    were at the bottom of the ocean, it could be swept by currents, or perhaps 
    swallowed by a large fish, whale, or even carried by another sea creature. If 
    so, the sea creature could have moved the Egg to a shallower part of the sea, 
    where it could have washed ashore. If it did, then perhaps Misty happened to be 
    at the beach and saw the Egg.  
    After Misty gains possession of the Egg, we go through Rich's scenarios to 
    learn that Rich kills Misty and gains possession of the Egg. However, his Anima 
    is not easily consumed by the Egg, and he resists. Then he throws himself off 
    the edge of the cliff in the Insect Megalith, bringing the Egg with him. By 
    doing so, he hopes that no one will find the Egg. It seems the Egg has a way of 
    getting itself noticed. From here, it gets even more ambiguous. We also learn 
    later that Fake Gustave gets his hands on the Egg. But how? He could have gone 
    exploring at the Insect Megalith, or someone else went to the Insect Megalith. 
    Or, if possible, he obtained the Egg from one of the bandits claiming to be 
    Gustave. He says it's just an Anima stone, but perhaps when he touched it, he 
    realized its immense powers. An even less likely possibility is that Rich 
    Knights is actually Fake Gustave. If Fake Gustave can use the power of the Egg 
    to change the color of his hair or eyes, then it's possible that the Egg can 
    change Rich's identity. But it's unlikely because Rich most likely died, and 
    even then, he would have resisted getting his Anima consumed by the Egg, right 
    to the end. I think this is also because he, Wil and his friends were the only 
    people who knew the Egg was malignant. We won't know for sure, as the game 
    never dwells on these details. It seems that Fake Gustave is the last possessor 
    of the Egg, as Ginny Knights, Gustaf, Roberto, Primiera, Meythia and Wil 
    destroy the Egg. It's quite interesting to note that it took Gustave's steel 
    weapon to destroy the Egg, and even then, Gustave's sword broke. 
    C) What happened to... 
    We don't learn the fate of some characters in SaGa Frontier 2, probably because 
    they are too insignificant in the story. Sometimes, the game states the death 
    of particular characters, but does not explain how they died, perhaps because 
    that is also not important, even though it may be interesting.  
    Gustave XII 
    In the Father's Sudden Death scenario, a messenger states that Gustave XII 
    passed away. 
    The Mother's Sickbed scenario shows Sophie's death from her sickness. 
    Gustave XIII 
    It's not very clear how Gustave XIII dies, since the game does not directly 
    declare that Gustave XIII is dead, except that everyone assumes he is dead. In 
    The Southern Fort, Gustave is attacked, and all that is left is his sword, so 
    we can only assume that he died (and his body disappeared somehow) or that he 
    If he escaped, could he be Fake Gustave? The game notes that he had white hair, 
    and could not be Gustave, who had blonde hair. But when Fake Gustave showed up, 
    Kelvin would have been very old, and so if the real Gustave were still living, 
    he would also be very old, and his hair may have turned white. However, if Fake 
    Gustave were really Gustave, and Gustave has no Anima, then one might wonder 
    how he interacts with the Egg. Since the real Gustave has no Anima, he would be 
    of no interest to the Egg, since the Egg cannot manipulate him. However, 
    Cielmer notes that he felt Gustave had potential Anima, but did not expect that 
    he would fail the Firebrand ceremony. Perhaps Gustave has Anima, but does not 
    know how to use it. If this is true, then Fake Gustave could be the real 
    Gustave, since the Egg would have interest in Gustave's Anima, except if the 
    Egg could do this, one may also wonder why it doesn't work for the Firebrand. 
    But I'm sure the game wants us to believe that Fake Gustave is not Gustave at 
    all, and Fake Gustave doesn't act like the real Gustave anyways. The Chronicle 
    section in the game notes Gustave's death at 49. 
    We do not learn how Marie dies. We only learn that she was married to Cantal. 
    In the Firebrand Tragedy, we know that Philippe failed the Firebrand because he 
    was too old, but when his son was killed, he took up Firebrand again, but his 
    Anima was consumed, and he became a dragon. This same dragon probably reappears 
    when Philippe III (Kelvin's son) is in danger in Hahn Nova in Flames. This is 
    probably because Philippe III becomes the father of Gustaf, who, like his 
    father, attempts the Firebrand Ceremony and succeeds. If Philippe III were to 
    die, then Gustaf would not exist and use the Firebrand for good. 
    Philippe II 
    During the Firebrand Tragedy, Philippe II is assassinated. Gustave believes the 
    assassin is from the Anima Faith, and he plans to avenge Philippe's death. 
    Philippe II was only seven. 
    The game specifically mentions Cantal's death in Death of Cantal: "Cantal, the 
    Marquis of Otto, struggles for supremacy against Kelvin, and finally conquers 
    the Merchmin Region. However, in 1288, nineteen years after Gustave's death, 
    his Anima leaves his body. He is 59.  
    His kingdom is divided among so many of his offspring that it loses any 
    influence it once had." 
    We do not learn how Nicolette dies. We only know that she is the daughter of 
    Cantal, and is the stepmother of Primiera, only because she pities her. 
    Gustave XIV 
    In the battle of Buckethill, Gustave XIII defeats Gustave XIV, and allows 
    Kelvin and Nebelstern to kill him. 
    King Sho 
    The chronicle only mentions his death in 1303, and by this time, he is very 
    old, but we do not learn how he dies. 
    Lord Thomas 
    We do not learn how Lord Thomas dies. We only learn from Kelvin that he is his 
    father, and was the Count of Jade before Kelvin. 
    We do not learn how Bart dies. We only know that he was one of the top pirates 
    in the Silver Sails Fleet that Gustave meets, and shares a similar position as 
    Gustave does. 
    We do not learn how Leslie dies. We learn from Kelvin that she was from the 
    Bering family, and probably from the upper class. She is kind, but fair to 
    Gustave, but I think she just wanted to keep Gustave out of trouble until he 
    started becoming more successful. 
    Nebelstern dies shortly after telling Gustave about his memory of his journey 
    from Gruegel to Vogelang through the desert. He probably died from sickness, 
    which was probably caused by his old age. 
    We do not learn how Cielmer dies. We only learn that he was the master of 
    various people, including Narcisse, Gustave, and probably Ventarbre and 
    King Sui 
    We do not learn how King Sui dies. We only know that he ruled over Gruegel, and 
    kept Sophie within his vicinity for awhile when she and Gustave escaped with 
    Cielmer from Thermes, and King Sui was probably the father of King Sho. 
    We learn, shortly after the battle of Salisbury, that he died from old age, 
    since he was 71. 
    It's unclear as to how Flynn died, but in The Southern Fort scenario, Flynn 
    made sure Ventarbre was safe, as per Gustave's orders, and went to check on 
    Gustave. He may have been killed by the monsters with Gustave. 
    We do not learn how Dirk dies. We only learn that he is the son of Flynn. 
    Philippe III 
    It's not directly implied as to what happens to Philippe III, except that he is 
    lost, and that Ventarbre could not find him. He could be dead, but he may even 
    be alive by the end of the game, but we do not learn about this. We do know 
    that he is Gustaf's father, and the son of Kelvin. 
    Charles dies in the battle of Hahn Nova at the hands of Fake Gustave. 
    We do not learn how Ventarbre dies. He was probably alive by the end of the 
    game. We learn that he has an apprentice, Meythia, but the game does not hint 
    his relationship with any existing characters, but he worked with Flynn and 
    Gustave and knew Philippe III, Gustaf and Wil. 
    In The Southern Fort scenario, Johan dies protecting Gustave. He dies because 
    of Scorpion poison, the trademark that his old organization used. Since he went 
    with Gustave and betrayed the Scorpion, the poison eventually killed him. 
    Duke Edmund 
    He probably died in the battle of Salisbury, but the game does not imply this 
    We do not learn how Primiera dies. She was probably alive by the end of the 
    game, assuming she didn't die to any of those elemental lords, if she was in 
    the sub party. She is the daughter of the late Cantal, and Nicolette's 
    stepdaughter, even though she did not appreciate it. 
    David is alive by the end of the game, but the end of the Battle of South 
    Moundtop scenario indicates that he dies much later, most likely from old age. 
    There seems to be a discrepancy regarding Henry's death. We do know that Henry 
    died when Wil was still young, but we do not know if Catherine killed Henry, as 
    Alexei suggested, or if Alexei himself killed Henry. But at the end of the 
    battle with the Egg, after Gustaf uses Gustave's sword to destroy the Egg, Wil 
    finally realizes that Henry's Anima was consumed by the Egg, and so it would 
    not have been impossible for Catherine to kill Henry, if his Anima was already 
    taken by the Egg. 
    Either Catherine was killed by Alexei, or the Egg consumed her. Of the two 
    options, the game does not dwell on them, so we do not know for sure. 
    We do not learn how Wil dies. Wil is alive by the end of the game. 
    This depends on how you play the game. If you choose her to go with Wil to see 
    Alexei, then Alexei's gang kills her. If you don't choose her, she becomes 
    Wil's wife, but we do not know if she lives like Wil does or if she dies. 
    We do not learn how Labelle dies. If Cordelia died from Alexei's gang, she 
    becomes Wil's wife. 
    In Showdown! Alexei, Nina takes care of the Wyverns and Wil and his friends 
    destroy Alexei. 
    In some accounts from the Desert Megalith scenario, we learn that Nicholai got 
    his hands on the Egg, but had his Anima consumed, and lost a hand. He explodes 
    and disappears when Henry attacks him and makes him lose the Egg. 
    The game does not imply directly what happens to Peter, but he does not return 
    to Vogelang like his other two brothers. He probably died, since Alexei also 
    suggested that his other brothers died as well. 
    We do not learn how Tyler dies. We only learn that he worked with Wil on his 
    expeditions, and protected the city from the pirates when Wil lured them so 
    that he could get closer to the Egg. 
    We do not learn how Patrick dies. We only know that he worked with Wil and 
    Eleanor on their expeditions, after he met Wil in the restaurant in Laubholz. 
    We do not learn how Narcisse dies. He probably died from old age, but he was 
    still around when Rich went on expeditions with Eleanor, and he worked with Wil 
    until Wil went to Laubholz. 
    In Showdown! Alexei, Nina seals the Wyverns with her Anima and dies shortly 
    after Wil and friends destroy Alexei. 
    We do not learn how Paul dies. We only know that he was Nina's wimpy husband, 
    and took care of Wil with Nina when his parents died. 
    Labelle's greedy brother loses his Anima in the Ice Megalith. He becomes the 
    Megalith Beast. If you go back to Weissland, you can kill the Megalith Beast. 
    We do not learn how Raymond dies. We only learn that he worked with Wil for a 
    while, and went on expeditions with Eleanor for the big cash. 
    Rich chases Misty to the Insect Megalith and kills her, but in an attempt to 
    isolate the Egg from other people, he probably died. He might even have been 
    Fake Gustave, if he could use the Egg to change form, but we do not know. 
    We do not learn how Diana dies. She was probably alive by the end of the game, 
    was Rich's wife, and Ginny's mother. 
    We do not learn how Eleanor dies. We know that she went on various expeditions 
    with Rich that rolled in tons of cash, but she was also easy to pick on. 
    Sargon becomes the Fire Lord after losing Greta and Watts, and their Animas are 
    consumed. His Anima was probably consumed by the Egg as well, but he dies when 
    Ginny and her party attack him. 
    We do not learn how Julia dies. We only learn that she wanted the Water Tower 
    restored, and Rich was willing to do it for her. 
    Rich chased Misty to the Insect Megalith and killed her so that she could not 
    use the Egg further. 
    We do not learn how Ginny dies. She is alive by the end of the game, and we 
    only know that she is Wil's granddaughter, and that she fought to the end with 
    Wil and Gustaf to destroy the Egg. 
    We do not learn how Gustaf dies. He is alive by the end of the game, and held 
    the two most powerful swords in the world, the Firebrand and Gustave's sword. 
    He destroyed the Egg with Gustave's sword. 
    We do not learn how Roberto dies. He is alive by the end of the game, and 
    tagged along with Ginny. 
    We do not learn how Meythia dies. She was probably alive by the end of the 
    game, and is Ventarbre's apprentice. 
    We do not learn how Mouton dies. He was probably dead by the end of the game, 
    but we only learn that he is the late Wide lord's advisor, and becomes 
    Gustave's advisor after Gustave thwarts the lord of Wide. 
    D) FAQ 
    I made up some of these because I thought they would be common questions people 
    would have, but if you have one that I have not mentioned, feel free to e-mail 
    me at angelus.tenebrae@gmail.com. 
    1) What really happened to Gustave? 
    This is another of those ambiguous areas of SaGa Frontier 2. The game seems to 
    suggest that Gustave died in the Southern Fort, as chronicle has noted that 
    Gustave died when he was 49. If so, he was probably attacked by those monsters, 
    and Johan would have failed to protect Gustave and died, since he had Scorpion 
    2) Does Gustave have any Anima? 
    The game wants us to believe that Gustave has no Anima. It was suggested by 
    Gustave XII that his son has no Anima because he could not draw Anima from the 
    Firebrand, yet Cielmer suggests that Gustave did have lots of potential Anima. 
    He could be wrong, but if he were correct, then perhaps Gustave does not know 
    how to use his Anima. This begs the question of if Gustave does not know how to 
    use his Anima, would he need to, or would Anima naturally be drawn from him if 
    he were to interact (ie, touch) with a Quell like the Firebrand, or even the 
    Egg? We do not know, but this might ruin the story if he did have Anima he did 
    not know how to use, since his existence and his success is central to his lack 
    of Anima. Without Anima, he succeeded, built a new city, had many soldiers and 
    friends, and encouraged the use of steel. He taught that one can still survive 
    and succeed without Anima. Even David suggested this in his speech after the 
    battle of South Moundtop. 
    3) Who is Fake Gustave, really? 
    We don't know really. He looks very much like the real Gustave, except for the 
    white hair (but that might be old age). But there is a clear distinction 
    between Fake Gustave and the real Gustave. Fake Gustave uses a sword called 
    Galatyn, which looks like a beast sword, and probably uses Anima. He also seems 
    not to use any steel equipment, and uses the Egg, which draws Anima. If the 
    real Gustave were to possess the Egg, the Egg would probably have no interest 
    in him, since he lacks Anima. If the real Gustave had Anima he did not know how 
    to use, and Fake Gustave was the real Gustave, then the game would probably 
    dwell more on his change and how he learned to use Anima through the Egg. But 
    as mentioned above, the game wants us to think that Gustave had no Anima at 
    all. Another consideration is that Rich did not die and perhaps was weakened by 
    his fall, where the Egg was free to consume his Anima. Since we know that Fake 
    Gustave had the Egg, and probably used it to change his hair color, it's not 
    difficult to see that he could change his form from someone who looks like Rich 
    to someone who looks like Gustave. The game also does not dwell on this, and in 
    the end, Wil notes his father's Anima, but does not mention anything about 
    Rich. It is quite possible then, that Fake Gustave is probably a completely 
    different entity.  
    4) What is an Edelritter? 
    In German, it means "noble knight". In the game, there are six of them, based 
    on the elements, fire, water, tree, stone, tone and beast. These edelritters 
    protect the Egg, and are named the fire lord, water lord, wood lord, stone 
    lord, tone lord and beast lord. The fire lord is Sargon, the first of the 
    Edelritters. I think the Edelritters were suggested in the Fake Gustave Arrives 
    scenario, where the customer tells Fake Gustave that he needs good advisors 
    like Kelvin, Nebelstern and Mouton. Fake Gustave or the Egg must have taken 
    this to mean the Edelritters, so he sought to find worthy people for them, such 
    as Sargon. I think their Animas were also consumed by the Egg. 
    5) How does an Anima work? 
    In Latin, "anima" means "spirit", similar to the word for animal, "like a 
    spirit". An Anima is like a soul. When it leaves a person's body, the person 
    dies. It is similar to the idea of religion, but unlike most monotheistic 
    religions, the soul does not leave the world; instead, it stays in the world, 
    but is free and not confined to a physical object. The game also suggests that 
    objects, animate or inanimate, have Animas. Stones, birds, and trees have 
    Animas. Anima also seems to suggest a type of power, one that lets people or 
    creatures use spells or magic. But humans would not use their own Animas to 
    create spells or magic, since it may drain their souls and cause them to die 
    physically. Instead, they use the Animas of other objects, like that of stones 
    or wood. I think that would be the idea of using a tool, by drawing the Anima 
    from another object to produce magic. But tools have limited amounts of Anima, 
    and so they can only be used a certain number of times before they run out of 
    Anima and become useless. In the game, you can use tools for a limited number 
    of times before they break. Quells, however, work differently. They have a lot 
    of Anima, and so a lot of Anima can be drawn from them without expiring. I 
    think that objects also project different types of Animas, so that the Anima 
    from a stone is a different element from the Anima inside a tree. This is 
    probably where the six elements come from. There are also other objects that 
    have no Anima at all, such as steel, which probably has no Anima because it 
    resists it. That is, Anima is probably free-roaming, and can easily enter 
    objects, except for steel because it resists Anima. Since steel does not use 
    Anima and does not get depleted, steel tools can be used an unlimited number of 
    times. People like Gustave are probably unable to manipulate Anima because he 
    doesn't have Anima. This probably also means that Gustave can only die by 
    physical means, and that others that have Anima can die if their Anima is drawn 
    outside of their bodies. 
    6) What is the Egg? What does it want? 
    Simply put, it is a strange Quell that was found in the desert Megalith. Unlike 
    other Quells, I think that the Egg does not have much Anima to begin with, and 
    even Wil notes the lack of Anima or any sort of power at the desert Megalith 
    where the Egg Quell was found. Instead, the Egg completely consumes the user's 
    Anima, which should kill the user, but the Egg uses the person and manipulates 
    it instead. It uses whatever Anima it has to consume even more Anima.  The Egg 
    claims to give the user great power, but the user must pay the price of 
    sacrificing his Anima and hence, his life. Weak or evil and greedy people are 
    easily intimidated and tantalized by the Egg, while people like those from the 
    Knights family can sense that there is something evil about the Egg, and 
    attempt to stop it. But like all things that use Anima, the Egg is not immune 
    to steel. 
    7) Is it true that Gustave had no children? 
    Most likely. The game does not tell us that Gustave was married or if he had 
    any children, but I think it wants us to think that Gustave had no wife, and 
    therefore, had no children. A lot of characters in the game had children, for 
    which their wives were not mentioned, like Kelvin, except we know he had 
    children because they appear in the game and state that they are Kelvin's sons. 
    A lot of the characters in the game believe that Gustave had no children, and 
    we do not meet them in the Southern Fort scenario; only Flynn's son, Dirk is 
    introduced. The only person that seems closest to Gustave is Gustaf, but we 
    know for sure that Gustaf is not related to Gustave because he is really 
    Philippe III's son, who is the son of Kelvin, who is only Gustave's friend, and 
    is not related to him in any way. 
    8) What happened to Wil after he sank the Egg? 
    Short answer: He survived. As for how he did it, my guess is that he drifted 
    ashore, and someone found him. Or maybe he found a life boat and rowed to 
    E) Character Analysis 
    I'm only including the character analyses of characters that really develop in 
    the game, not the characters that are just mentioned once or twice, or join 
    your party and leave for no reason. 
    The eldest son of Gustave XII and Sophie, and the man who changed the world 
    around without Anima. He was considered worthless because he had no Anima, and 
    could not use any magic. Even Leslie asked how it could be so difficult to live 
    without Anima, but I think it was because it was important for Gustave XII and 
    his successors to have Anima because only worthy successors can wield Firebrand 
    and therefore, must have Anima. To them, Anima is something that is taken for 
    granted that everyone, or almost everyone should have. Therefore, Gustave XII 
    expected that it should not be too difficult to ask for a son with Anima. Since 
    Gustave does not have what everyone has, it means a lot that he cannot do what 
    everyone else can do--use spells. As the game explains, since he lacks what 
    everyone has, and came from a royal family, he has no friends, and becomes 
    violent. He has no way in which he can obtain power, or succeed the throne or 
    become successful or noticed. He believes he is worthless, but only his mother 
    really cares about him. I think this changed somewhat when he saw the 
    blacksmith and learned to make a steel sword. If he could not use spell arts to 
    gain power, he could use steel. When Flynn got captured and he saved him with 
    the steel sword, he probably realized what he could do with it. With a bit more 
    practice, he moved over to Wide and thwarted the inexperienced lord. When he 
    became successful, he must also have realized that he did all this without 
    having to use Anima or spell arts. He succeeded on his own ambitions, but I 
    think he was successful also because he had friends he could rely on. They gave 
    him somewhere to start. He showed the world that it was not Anima that 
    determined who you are and where you stand, but rather, intelligence and
    Gustave's mother is a kind, gentle person who does not judge people by their 
    Anima. She loved Gustave because he was her son, and felt that she just could 
    not abandon him. He was a person, even if he did not have Anima, and she tried 
    to tell him that he was still a person, and that he could still do fine even 
    without Anima. Gustave should have realized that there was someone who believed 
    in him, and that was his mother, but he was very young then. But I think he did 
    end up having respect for her, and still felt sorry that she had to bear with 
    him when he was younger.  
    Kelvin is a bit of a fruit. He's not exactly gay, but he's very wierd. He's 
    very paranoid about Gustave's safety, but I don't think he's ever stopped to 
    think that Gustave is the way he is because he has no Anima. I don't think he's 
    anal retentive either, but I don't think anyone has told him that, except maybe 
    Nebelstern. I think Gustave let him stay with him because Kelvin is paranoid 
    about him, and probably wouldn't leave Gustave alone. He couldn't even bear to 
    leave Gustave's city, Hahn Nova, even when it was in danger. 
    He seems very attached to his mother, and it may be because he's the youngest 
    son. I think when Sophie left, he was very upset, so he blamed his brother, 
    Gustave. When she died, and he never saw her again, it got even worse. But I 
    think he came to terms with Gustave when he came back because he saw Sophie's 
    Anima. I don't think he knew that grabbing the Firebrand the second time would 
    turn him into a dragon, but I think he did it because he did not want to live. 
    His son who succeeded the Firebrand Ceremony died because someone assassinated 
    him, and even if he waited seven years for another heir, he could also be 
    assassinated. I think the Firebrand turned him into a dragon to protect other 
    important people like Philippe III so that they would not die too soon. 
    Nebelstern was the general for Wide's lord, until Gustave took over. He only 
    agreed to help Gustave because of Cielmer's suggestion, and because Nebelstern 
    had previous experiences with Cielmer. I think that he just decided to help 
    Gustave anyways because he did not trust Gustave to begin with, but when he 
    realized that Cielmer used to be Gustave's master, he could be trusted. Cielmer 
    must also have reminded Nebelstern of his earlier experience in Vogelang and 
    Gruegel, which he also saw in Gustave. But I think after Nebelstern got over 
    his trust in Gustave, they got along together quite well. 
    I think Flynn was included as a stereotype for those without Anima. Since he 
    does not have what everyone has, he would have felt weak, undesired and 
    ungifted. Even his parents treated him poorly. Gustave should have been lucky 
    to have a mother like Sophie. He only looked up to Gustave because they shared 
    the same problem, and felt that Gustave would not be hostile towards him 
    because he would understand him better. Gustave was hostile anyways because he 
    thought he was worthless all along, and it wouldn't matter what he did. But 
    Flynn must have believed that it was still better to be picked on by someone 
    that shared the same problem instead of someone that did have Anima. 
    The son of Kelvin, I think he is rash and rude. It's probably all his fault 
    that Nicolette is trying to make everyone hate the Jade family, and he even 
    disagrees with Kelvin and his son, David. He thought his methods would be more 
    effective than Kelvin's or David's, but he failed, and his recklessness caused 
    him to die at the battle of Hahn Nova. 
    David's not exactly a fruit like his grandfather, but he has the same goals for
    peace. I think he had better tactics than his grandfather though, and he also
    chose a better location to hold the meetings, and nobody ran away. He was more
    successful than both his father and grandfather. 
    When he learned of his parents' deaths, he became motivated to know more about 
    the Egg. What's interesting is that he did not learn the complete truth of his 
    parents until he became very old, and saw his father's Anima being released 
    from the Egg. He lived quite long, probably because he had to know if the Egg 
    was gone for sure. Wil is also fascinated by adventures and digging 
    expeditions. His character isn't as interesting as Gustave, but I think he's 
    just trying to take on the stereotypical hero role, but with more personal 
    The son of Wil, and another big adventurer, just like everyone else in the 
    Knights family. Unlike his father though, he had a better childhood, and did 
    not get involved with the Egg until he met Misty. I don't think he really 
    wanted to have anything to do with the Egg, as he doubts himself in the 
    Settlement before heading off to the Insect Megalith to meet Misty. I think he 
    continued because he didn't want anyone else to touch the Egg, and probably had 
    the same fears Wil did. It's such a pity that a proficient sword artist like 
    Rich had to die.
    Rich's daughter, who never got to see her father. Her childhood wasn't exactly 
    traumatic either, but I think she got bored of being cooped up in the house, 
    and opportunity was striking when Wil left for Thermes. She likes adventures, 
    not unlike anyone else from the Knights family, but I think she could have 
    found a better way to go about it. I think she went with Wil to find and 
    destroy the Egg, only because it meant another adventure, but she doesn't seem 
    to indicate whether she knows anything about the Egg, except that it exists.
    The son of Philippe III, and the grandson of Kelvin. He succeeded the Firebrand 
    Ceremony, as his father before him, but like Gustave, he forged his own steel 
    sword. He ran away from Philippe III, and I'm not too sure why, but perhaps it 
    was because he did not want to take responsibility, and went adventuring with 
    Roberto instead. But he ended up saving the world and destroying the Egg. I 
    think he has the best of both worlds, having Anima and the powerful sword 
    Quell, Firebrand, but also being able to use and create steel weapons, and 
    eventually getting his hands on Gustave's sword. He may not have had a large 
    army to command, did not build a city, or have many advisors, and I think it's 
    all because he ran away. But he is successful anyways, and he is a wise person, 
    despite his age. His hair looks funny.
    She ran away from Otto because she could not live with her stepmother. I don't 
    think she really minded the lifestyle there, but I don't think she was happy 
    with the way her stepmother was going about with conspiracies, and hatred for 
    the Jade family. She did not want wars, and perhaps she saw her stepmother's 
    personal hatred for Charles as a bad reason for hating Jade. She probably also 
    feared that her stepmother would also make her hate the Jade family, and make 
    sure that everyone else also hated the Jade family, but I think Primiera 
    preferred that everyone should have their own opinions of things. Of course, 
    her stepmother was wrong, and it was David, son of Charles, son of Kelvin of 
    the Jade family that allowed peace to prosper. When Gustaf went to help David 
    at the battle of South Moundtop, she did not want to get involved because she 
    did not like wars, and she did not go anyways because if she helped David, she 
    would just be going against her stepmother's wishes, which is not what she 
    intends to do; she just wants to be neutral.
    F) Family Tree
    A family tree for all the characters, and probably what we know of them. Some 
    characters or wives are not specifically mentioned, but we'll just assume it 
    was an unamed wife of some sort.
                        Philippe II                        (various unknown

    *We do not learn if Cantal had more than one wife. I'm pretty sure that there 
    was only one Cantal, and that if Cantal did have many children, and Primiera 
    was his last child, then Nicolette would be far older than Primiera, but if she 
    were Primiera's stepmother, it would be more plausible for Nicolette to have a 
    different mother from Primiera, otherwise, they are just sisters.
