    Welcome to my guide! 
    And thanks for reading it ^_^ 
    
    This guide is based on the PS2, English version of Magna Carta: Tears of Blood.
    
    Although I think it is obvious, but I do like to point out that this script
    DOES contain SPOILERS.
    So, if you don’t want to spoil the whole game, do not read on!!
    There, you’ve been warned. 
    
    I’m aware of the fact, that I can be very unimaginative when it comes to
    explaining things.
    So PLEASE, if you do have a better explanation for any of the events,
    be so kind and send it to me. Thanks ^_^.
    
    
    And now, to the script!!! 
    ( just after the table of contents ^_^)

    |               In the land of Efferia, a continent cut off from              |
    |      the rest of the world by violent ocean currents and steep cliffs,      |
    |                     a war rages between two races,                          |
    |                        the humans and the Yason.                            |
    |                                                                             |
    |               600 years ago, in the midst of a terrible storm,              |
    |                   four ships washed ashore on this land.                    |
    |              The humans had abandoned their plague-ridden home              |
    |                 in search of a new land to live in peace.                   |
    |     The colonists named this land Efferia and established a settlement.     |
    |      Before long, the human population grew, and four countries emerged:    |
    |                     Garute, Macaratte, Bayer and Amabat.                    |
    |      In response, the native Yason banded their tribes together to form     |
    |                        the Kingdom of Yason-Roven.                          |
    |                                                                             |
    |           After centuries of fighting over land and resources,              |
    |          a full-scale war between the two raced finally erupted.            |
    |                  For many years, the war has continued...                   |
    |                                                                             |
    |          At present, the human Alliance is on the verge of losing           |
    |      to the Yason Queen, Amila and her mighty warriors, the Blast Worms.    |
    |                     But, the humans still have one hope:                    |
    |              the Alliance is secretly planning an offensive                 |
    |            that will draw on the power of the Forbidden Magic.              |
    |            General Agreian, the officer in charge of the operation          |
    |   has assigned a mercenary group known as the Tears of Blood a key role.    |
    |                                                                             |
    |              This group eager to end the war, is made up of                 |
    |             members who’ve all lost loved ones in the fighting.             |
    |                                                                             |
    | In the middle of a war that will decide the future of and entire continent, |
    |              and ultimate power is about to be awakened...                  |

    ( A white-haired boy wakes up, and sits up on his bed)
    Calintz: ... It’s been a while, since I had that dream. Am I
             nervous about the plan...? I should have the
             others get ready.
             I’m sure the General will contact us soon.
    
    ( Standing next to the bed)
    Calintz: I’ll talk to Eonis and Azel first.
             ...Haren’s probably at the basement.
    
    ( To the north from Calintz’s room, the girl wearing red)
    Eonis:   Calintz, you don’t look so good.
    
    Calintz: Don’t worry, I’m fine.
    
    Eonis:   I hope everything goes smoothly. We don’t even
             know what the plan is yet. Is it a secret mission?
    
    Calintz: Yes. Not many people know about it, so be
             careful what you say. I should have the details
             from General Agreian soon.
    
    Eonis:   Sounds like an important mission...
             I won’t say anything to anyone.
    
    Calintz: I’m sorry, but it’s urgent. 
             Unfortunately, I don’t think I can give you
             permission to return to Bayer anytime soon.
    
    Eonis:   That’s okay. I just wanted to visit a few friends
             from magic school. They’re all worried
             because I’m on the battlefield.
    
    Calintz: I don’t blame them. 
             They’re far away from the front lines...
    
    Eonis:   That’s true. My parents did everything
             they could to stop the war, and that’s why
             I’m fighting, too.
             With the support of the mages from Bayer,
             we should be able to end it soon.
    
    |                        Eonis joined Calintz’s party.                        |
    
    ( Near the exit of the building, on the right, the boy, beside the door)
    Azel:    You’re up early, Captain.
    
    Calintz: You look like you had a rough night...
    
    Azel:    Um, yeah. I’m a but nervous...
             It’s my first time participating
             in such a big mission...
    
    Calintz: I haven’t assigned you to any dangerous
             missions because I didn’t want you to get hurt.
             But now, I feel you’re ready.
    
    Azel:    Captain! You really think so!? 
             I was worried you’d never let me in on
             the real action! 
    
    Calintz: Think you can handle it?
    
    Azel:    Don’t worry. I won’t let you down!
             I lost everything in this war, but you saved me.
             And not just once... countless times...
             That’s why I want to become strong, 
             so I can be like you!
    
    Calintz: You ARE strong...
             You’re a worthy member of the Tears of Blood.
             Be confident.
    
    |                         Azel joined Calintz’s party.                         |
    
    ( In the basement, speaking to the only person)
    Haren:   I thought the Alliance would give it a rest after
             the beating they took from the Blast Worms.
             What do they have in mind this time?
    
    Calintz: They’re keeping it a secret. But for a while now,
             mages from Bayer have been in and out of the
             Alliance Headquarters.
             You can guess what that means.
    
    Haren:   They’re gonna attack the Yason with magic?
    
    Calintz: It’s possible. You know how they are in Bayer.
             I wouldn’t be surprised if they have a few tricks 
             they haven’t told us about.
    
    Haren:   Psh... What can a bunch of mages do?
    
    Calintz: ...Haren.
    
    Haren:   No matter how long I fight, my hatred will last...
             until I find the one who killed Felicia
             and avenge her death.
    
    Calintz: ...
    
    Haren:   Felicia never hurt anyone. She was a priestess.
             She cared for the wounded.
             They killed her just for being human.
    
    |                         Azel joined Calintz’s party.                         |
    
    ( In the Conference Room)
    Lehas:   Chris took Maya and went to Notia.
    
    Calintz: That’s probably for the best.
             I’d rather not get her involved.
    
    Lehas:   True... She’s still young, even if she’s more 
             powerful than any other clerics and priestesses.
    
    Calintz: Sorry... I left you with all the paperwork.
             I didn’t plan for that to happen.
    
    Lehas:   I’d rather be busy.
             Besides, since I can’t use a sword,
             this type of work suits me better.
    
    Calintz: You’re always so indifferent.
    
    Lehas:   And you always seem so caught up
             In getting revenge.
             You should pay attention to the other things
             that go on around here.
             I understand that you’re out there putting
             your life on the line, but who do you think
             keeps this place running smoothly?
             Who do you think tries to find you
             the safest missions?
    
    Calintz: I apologize for not considering you
             point of view. I’ll keep in mind
             from now on.
    
    Lehas:   The Tears of Blood used to be an independent
             mercenary group. Why do you let the Alliance 
             assign you such dangerous missions?
             It is because your need for revenge?
             Or is it your ambition? We could easily keep
             this place running with more ordinary missions.
    
    Calintz: The Tears of Blood was created to help end 
             the war. Just like me, most of the members
             detest the Yason.
             It might seem like I have a personal agenda, 
             but I’m not the only one who wants revenge.
             So I don’t mind taking orders
             from General Agreian.
    
    |                         Agreian is calling you.                             |
    
    ( Approaching the Communication Sphere)
    Agreian: Are you ready? 
    
    Calintz: Yes, General.
    
    Agreian: Knowing you, you’ve probably already figured
             out most of the plan.
             Anyway, the mages of Bayer have agreed
             to use the Forbidden Magic to end this war.
             We’ve already created a large magic circle at
             Mt. Aremori. From there, we’ll attack Epentar,
             the capital of Yason-Roven.
    
    Calintz: I suspected the plan would involve magic.
    
    Agreian: Evoking the Forbidden Magic and attacking 
             the Yason will be extremely dangerous.
             Mt. Aremori is within their territory,
             and the roads are steep.
             I’m sure you’ve been there before.
    
    Calintz: Yes, on various missions.
    
    Agreian: The Forbidden Magic is more powerful
             than an army, but the ceremony takes time.
             You must protect the mages
             So that they can complete it.
    
    Calintz: I understand.
    
    Agreian: I have nothing more to say.
             I know the Tears of Blood will to a great job.
             When you’re ready, head for Mt. Aremori.
    
    Calintz: Yes, sir.
    
    
    ( In front of the Headquarters)
    Azel:    We’re gonna be doing a lot of fighting, 
             aren’t we, Captain? I’m a little worried;
             I don’t wanna screw up...
             So before we go, do you think you could
             give me some tips?
    
    - You have the necessary skills. Let’s get on with the mission.
    - Sure. It’ll be a tough battle, so it doesn’t hurt to be prepared.
    ( in case you’ve chosen the first one, skip to the end of the tutorial)

    Sure. It’ll be a tough battle, so it doesn’t hurt to be prepared.
    *****************************************************************
    Calintz: Sure. It’ll be a tough battle, so it doesn’t hurt to be prepared.
    
    Azel:    Thanks. I’ll do my best.
    
    [ Beginning of the tutorial ]
    
    Calintz: Azel, try attacking.
             You know how, right?
    
    Azel:    Of course, Captain. All I need to do is time it 
             right and use some Chi.
    
    Calintz: Then, you know what Chi is?
    
    Azel:    Ummmm, I’m not sure about that...
    
    Calintz: Chi is the energy that sustains this world.
             It exists everywhere, even within our bodies.
             Chi is used for skills and magic attacks, too.
             You know the Trinity Circle uses Chi, right?
    
    Azel:    Yeah. When you approach an enemy, a circle is
             displayed. Within that circle, Yin and Yang come
             together.
             You must press the X or the O button at
             just the right moment. Then, the power of
             Chi will be released and take form.
    
    Calintz: You’ve got the right idea. No, go up to that
             Cactra, wait for the circle to appear, and try to
             press the right button at the right time.
             If you do all three button presses correctly, 
             you’ll attack your foe.
    
    ( After performing the attack)
    Calintz: Good. By the way, do you know about
             the Leadership Meter?
    
    Azel:    The Leadership Meter? 
    
    ( A white hand is pointing to the upper right corner)
    Calintz: In the upper right hand corner of the screen
             two meters are displayed.
             The top one is the enemy’s, and the bottom
             one represents your party’s.
    
    Azel:    I see them.
    
    Calintz: Imagine you’re taking turns. 
             If you don’t move at all, the meter will slowly fill.
             But take action, a certain amount will be 
             required. Pay attention and you’ll quickly
             see how it works.
    
    Azel:    Why it is called the Leadership Meter?
    
    Calintz: The marks on the meter are determined by
             the Charisma of the participants.
             If the enemies’ total Charisma is higher than
             our party’s, then it will be a difficult battle.
             As a leader, I want to make sure everyone fights
             efficiently. The Leadership Meter is the key to
             accomplishing that.
    
    Azel:    Then, every time we defeat one of our foes, 
             it will become easier to defeat the remaining
             enemies, right?
    
    Calintz: Exactly. The more we trust each other, 
             the better off we’ll be in battle.
             That’s why it’s important to stay on good terms
             with all members of the party.
    
    Azel:    Well, if you give me that Gold Pendant I saw
             in Lester, I’ll be your best friend for life!
    
    Calintz: Should we stop training now and go clean up?
    
    Azel:    If you don’t mind, let’s continue.
    
    Calintz: In battle, there are many important things to
             remember.
             For starters, pay attention to the Chi required
             by your skills.
    
    Azel:    The Chi this skill uses is...
    
    ( The white hand is pointing to "H" beside the skill name of Azel)
    Azel:    Celestial.
    
    Calintz: Next, check the Chi in the surrounding area.
    
    ( The white hand is pointing to the left upper corner)
    Azel:    Looks pretty stable.
    
    Calintz: Yeah, right now all the Chi is at its normal level.
             But when you use Celestial Chi to do your skill,
             the Celestial Chi in the surroundings will decrease.
             The same is true for other skills that require Chi.
             The Chi in the environment will regenerate with
             time, but it may take awhile.
    
    Azel:    What happens if the Chi runs out?
    
    Calintz: If a particular Chi is completely gone, then those skills that
             Use that Chi won’t be as strong.
             Once the Chi is completely gone, then those skills
             can’t be used at all, so be careful.
    
    Azel:    If the Celestial Chi runs out, how am I supposed to fight?
    
    Calintz: Either use skills that require different Chi or
             change style.
             Remember, you’re not the only one who’ll 
             be fighting, so plan ahead.
             Since Chi usage differs according to style,
             it’s a good idea to try and a balanced party.
    
    Azel:    In other words, go to "Form" on the Menu
             Screen and set it so everyone will use a different
             Chi. Then battles will be easier.
    
    Calintz: Exactly.
    
    ( The Trinity Drive is charged to 100 %)
    Calintz: You’re doing well.
             Do you know about the Trinity Drive?
    
    Azel:    No, what’s that?
    
    Calintz: In battle, when "GREAT" is displayed after you
             press a button during an attack, you’ll accumulate 
             Trinity Drive points.
             Once you’ve filled it 30% or more, 
             the Trinity Drive can be used by pressing
             the "Square" button.
    
             That’s great, Azel. 
             You have the Trinity Drive at 100%. 
             If you use it when it’s at 100%,
             you’ll do twice the damage.
    
    Azel:    That’s sounds awesome!
             Should I try using it?
    
    ( After killing the Cactra )
    Azel:    Wow, that was a powerful attack.
    
    Calintz: But, you need to be careful.
             Anytime you miss an attack, 
             the Trinity Drive will go back to 0%.
    
    Azel:    Okay, I get it.
    
    Calintz: Azel, do you know about the different styles?
    
    Azel:    Of course. Each style has a set of similar skills.
             My style is "Ryusei Ikkou"
    
    Calintz: Right. But, you haven’t learned all the skills for
             that style yet.
             Each style has at least two skills, but to begin with,
             you’ll only be able to use the most basic one.
    
    Azel:    I see. So, how can I learn other skills?
    
    Calintz: As you use your existing skills, you will perceive
             new ones , which you will then be able to use.
             But, there’s a catch...
             In order to perceive a new skill, you must use 
             your most difficult existing skill and receive 
             "GREAT" for your three button presses.
    
    Azel:    Okay, got it.
    
    Calintz: Do you know how to switch styles?
    
    Azel:    No, how?
    
    Calintz: First, press "Triangle" button.
    
    Azel:    ...Which brings up the Menu Screen, right?
    
    Calintz: On the Menu Screen, you’ll see "Style".
             If you’ve learned a new style, then you can change
             to that style during battle by selecting this option.
             Next, I’ll explain "Standard" mode.
    
    Azel:    "Standard" mode?
    
    Calintz: All styles start out with basic "Standard" mode
             skills.
             If you want to use a stronger skill, you’ll have 
             to use the weaker ones first, in order.
             For example, let’s say you acquired all four skills
             for the Ryusei Ikkou style, and you want to use
             the stronger one.
             Then, first you must use the other three in order.
             After you use a stronger skill, you can revert back
             to a weaker one if necessary.
             This will come in handy when a particular Chi
             is gone and the Leadership Meter is full.
             During battle, use the left and right directional
             buttons to change skills.
    
    Azel:    Okay, I got it.
    
    Calintz: That’s it for the basics of "Standard" mode.
             The good thing is, with most styles, you can use
             a shield against your opponent’s attacks.
             With a shield, the danger you take is lessened.
    
    Azel:    Ohhh... I see.
    
    Calintz: After you master all the skills for a particular style,
             then you can use "Combo" mode.
             Not all styles allow "Combo" mode, however.
             My Fuget Style does.
             To change between "Standard" and "Combo" 
             modes, during battle, use the up and down
             directional buttons.
             When in "Combo" mode, the Trinity Circle spins
             faster the usual, but if you’re successful with
             the button entries,
             then you’ll do a combo attack, which can do a 
             great deal of damage.
    
    Azel:    Wow... That’s amazing.
    
    Calintz: But it’s not easy to do without a single miss on 
             the Trinity Circle.
             If you do miss, the attack will fail, and your 
             Leadership Meter will decrease.
             You cannot use a shield in "Combo" mode,
             so be careful.
    
    Azel:    Yes, Captain. 
    
    Calintz: And lastly, there’s "Counter" mode.
    
    Azel:    How’s that work?
    
    Calintz: It’s and advanced mode where you try to predict 
             the enemy’s attacks  and counter them.
             Switching to "Counter" mode is done the same way
             as switching between the other modes.
             When the enemy attacks, question marks will 
             appear on the Trinity Circle.
             If you guess correctly, you can avoid the enemy’s 
             attack and counter it, without the Leadership
             Meter decreasing.
    
    Azel:    That’s a big advantage.
    
    Calintz: But just like in "Combo" mode, you risk taking 
             heavy damage.
    
    Azel:    I’ll be careful, then.
    
    Calintz: That’s enough training for today.
             We need to head to Mt. Aremori and execute
             the plan.
    
    Azel:    Thank you, Captain.
    
    [ End of the tutorial ]
    
    Azel:    Um, Captain...
             I might not be able to remember all this.
             Can you explain it again?
    
    Calintz: If you need to refresh your memory,
             you can always go to the training area
             and ask someone there.
    
    Azel:    Alright, thanks.

    Calintz: You have the necessary skills. Let’s get on with the mission.
    
    Azel:    Yes, Captain. I’m ready.
    
    Calintz: If it’s not clear, then go to the training area
             and ask another member.
    
    Azel:    Thanks, Captain.
    
    
    ( After leaving the area, on the world map)
    Eonis:   I hope we all make it back safely.
    
    Azel:    Don’t worry, the mission will be a success!
    
    Haren:   Hell yeah. Let’s show those Yason
             what we’re made of.
    
    Calintz: For this plan, we’ll be going to Mt. Aremori.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    ( Calintz, Azel, Eonis and Haren are standing in a tent, around a table )
    Calintz: Our mission is to guard the magicians.
             While they’re performing the ritual, they’ll be defenseless.
    
    Haren:   What an honor for us lowly mercenaries to serve
             as human shields for he great magicians.
    
    Eonis:   *giggle* I knew would say that.
    
    Azel:    At least it pays well, since it’s a secret mission.
    
    Calintz: That’s right. It doesn’t matter if we have the respect 
             of the Alliance or not. We’ll still carry out the mission.
    
    Haren:   Leave the dirty work to the Tears of Blood, huh?
    
    Calintz: If the Forbidden Magic hits Epentar, it’ll be a devastating blow
             to the Yason. But if we fail, there’s a good chance
             we’ll be surrounded by the Blast Worms.
             If something like that happens retreat to Lester
             on the border of Garute. Understood?
    
    Azel:    Yes, sir.
    
    Calintz: Let’s go.
    
    Haren:   I hope you find what’s you’re looking for.
    
    Calintz: Yeah... You, too.
    
    
    ( Speaking to the fortune-teller, who near the entrance of the tent)
    Eonis:   Why don’t we have our fortunes told before
             we begin our mission?
    
    Azel:    Fortunes?
    
    Haren:   Hmph, I don’t give a damn about no Fortunes.
    
    Eonis:   The concept of Fortunes has been widely
             accepted by many famous scholars.
             They have proven that you can gain more 
             Experience Points if you are lucky.
    
    Haren:   Then what about being UNLUCKY or, worst yet,
             VERY UNLUCKY!?
    
    Eonis:   First, you need to have a fortune-teller "Undo"
             your bad luck.
             The effects of which will wear off over time...
             I’d say the time it takes to fight a couple of battles.
             Plus, Fortunes do affect other things, too.
             So, it would be wise to keep your luck high.
    
    Calintz: Eonis, being lucky and all is great, but do we
             have enough "Talismans"?
    
    Eonis:   I brought along as many as I thought we need.
             But, if you feel it’s not enough, we can always 
             buy them or combine them to make others.
    
    Azel:    You can combine "Talismans"?
    
    Eonis:   Talismans are pieces of paper with Chi sealed
             inside them. Some are stronger than others...
             It’s possible to make a high level Talisman
             by combining two lower level ones, but only
             fortune-tellers are able to perform this ritual.
    
    Calintz: I’ve heard that there are rare Talismans that can
             only be made through combining certain ones.
    
    Eonis:   But, watch when combining, because it the 
             combining process fails, both talismans will
             be lost.
    
    Azel:    You know so much, Eonis! 
             Let’s have out fortunes told before we leave, 
             shall we?
    
    ( Near the exit of the Base area)
    Azel:    Captain, do you know about "Camp Mode"?
    
    - No.
    - Yes.
    ( in case you’ve chosen the first one, skip to this part)
    
    ****
     No.
    ****
    Calintz: No.
    
    Azel:    Every member of the party has a level of
             "Friendship" with you, the captain. You can
             coordinate these levels in "Camp Mode".
             To switch to Camp Mode, press the X button
             while touching the Save Point.
             In Camp Mode, you can select a member of your
             party and talk to him/her or give him/her a gift.
             Depending on how your conversation goes or 
             what you give to them as a gift, their level of
             Friendship changes.
             The level of Friendship can go up or down.
             Each member’s level of Friendship affects your
             "Leadership". For instance, if the level of Friendship is high,
             you can do more things with the same about 
             of Leadership.
             But remember, Friendship gained by artificial 
             means will wear off and return to their original
             level.
             Also, you should take note that repeatedly 
             Giving a present to a single person will not
             always raise his/her Friendship.
             You know how you get tired of eating the same
             food over and over? It’s kinda like that.
             You can also check other things besides
             Friendship during Camp Mode.
    
    *****
     Yes.
    *****
    Calintz: Yes.
    
    Azel:    Well that was a dumb question. Let’s go then.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    ( On the road you meet with a group of three people)
    Calintz: It’s been a while, General Tazma.
    
    Tazma:   I’m not in the mood to talk to you.
             Don’t tell e you forgot about the other day...
             Where you made fools of my soldiers at the
             celebration party, in front of the Commander,
             no less!
    
    Calintz: They were being disrespectful to their superiors,
             so I taught them a lesson.
    
    Tazma:   Disrespectful to their superiors? You should talk!
             I heard you left the unit without permission.
    
    Calintz: Actually, the Commander complimented me
             on my decision, saying that I saved them time
             in storming Sobon.
    
    Tazma:   Y-You dare insult me!?
    
    Calintz: I won’t even bother answering that...
             Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have 
             important things to attend to.
    
    Tazma:   Hmph... Insolent fool...
    
    
    ( Going forward on the mountain path)
    Eonis:   There are monsters lurking around here
             that the Yason summoned, so stay alert.
    
    Calintz: When moving around, we should 
             switch to "Detect Mode".
    
    Azel:    What’s that?
    
    Haren:   It’s a mode where you look around carefully 
             as you walk. Pressing the R1 button will allow
             you to toggle between modes. Got that!?
    
    Calintz: When it’s safe, use "Dash Mode" to run through
             an area quickly. To switch to it, press the 
             R1 button again while in "Detect Mode".
    
    Haren:   Look out when running in "Dash Mode"
             since it’s hard to see the enemy! If you’re
             not careful, they’ll take you by surprise.
    
    Azel:    I see now. So, if we sneak up on an enemy in 
             "Detect Mode" and press the X button, we can 
             attack the enemy and get the upper hand, right?
    
    Haren:   You shouldn’t forget "Rest Mode". If you’re in
             a battle area, pressing the "Square" button will make
             you kneel and rest.
             While you kneel, you’ll regain HP.
             Just make sure you don’ open the submenu and 
             Leave it there by pressing the "Triangle" button, since you
             won’t regain HP while the submenu is open.
    
    Azel:    Is that so? What happens if an enemy
             attacks you while you’re resting?
    
    Haren:   What do you think!?
             Of course we’ll be taken by surprise!
             So make sure the coast is clear before resting.
    
    Calintz: Alright, are you ready?
             Let’s hurry to the magic circle!
    
    ( going near one of the strange looking thingies in the area)
    Azel:    Huh?? What’s that strange object?
    
    Haren:   That’s a "Lantern". Geez, where have you been?
    
    Eonis:   It’s a crystallization of Chi that fills the air
             around with Chi.
             This area has strong Mountain Chi, 
             so I would assume it’s a Mountain Lantern.
    
    Azel:    Is that so...
    
    Haren:   By using a Talisman, you can change the element
             of the Lantern.
             Just be careful and don’t use an element of
             the direct opposite affinity, or else it’ll blow!
    
    Eonis:   So, if we change the element to Fire, which I
             use often, then I’ll become stronger.
             Be careful, because if you change the element to
             one that an enemy uses, it’ll become stronger.
    
    Calintz: To make full use of my Fuget Style,
             it would be best to change the Lantern to Wind.
    
    
    ( going forward on the road, 3 people are waiting)
    Agreian: There you are. 
    
    Calintz: General Agreian, we’re ready.
    
    Agreian: It’s time...
             Even you must be nervous for this time.
    
    Calintz: Hardly.
    
    Agreian: *chuckle* It’s quite reassuring having you here,
             although the old general doesn’t speak
             so highly of you.
    
    Calintz: You know the whole story, don’t you?
             I just received a scolding.
    
    Agreian: He’s a capable general, trusted by the Commander 
             himself. He was called "The Golden Lion"
             in his younger days.
             Even I cannot question his orders.
    
    Calintz: I understand.
    
    Agreian: If we succeed, it will give the Alliance
             a great advantage. But if we fail, 
             the Blast Worms will...
    
    Calintz: We’ll carry out the mission successfully.
    
    Agreian: I have faith in you.
             But, if it becomes dangerous, pull back.
             Be careful. You are much too valuable an asset 
             for us to loose.
    
    Calintz: You don’t have to worry. 
             I don’t plan on dying just yet.

    ( Not far from the save point, there are two alliance soldiers waiting)
    Soldier: We’ve been waiting for you.
             I hope this mission goes without incident.
    
    Calintz: Leave it to us. 
    
    ( While Calintz is talking with the soldiers, suddenly they are attacked by   )
    ( Blast Worms and a "normal" looking Yason.                                   )
    
    ???????: Not bad.
    
    Calintz: You’re one of the Four Worriers.
    
    ???????: That’s right. I am Orha. The leader of the Four Worriers.
             It seems the Tears of Blood have taken good care of my men.
    
    Calintz: And I could say the same.
    
    Orha:    But, the fun end here.
             Her Highness already knows of your scheme.
    
    Calintz: She may know of it, but she can’t stop it.
    
    Orha:    That’s what you think.
    
    
    ( during the fight)
    Calintz: I’m looking for a Yason with a Vindi shaped
             like a butterfly. Have you seen him?
    
    Orha:    What are you talking about?
    
    Calintz: Alright, let’s take care of the Blast Worms first, 
             and then we’ll worry about 
    
    ( after a few attacks, it the HP of one of the Blast Worms is under 50%)
    Calintz: The mages have conjured the Forbidden Magic!
    
    [MOVIE]
    
    Azel:    Wh-What’s going on?
    
    Mage:    Ohhh... The Forbidden Magic... The Forbidden Magic...!
    
    Eonis:   Are you alright?
    
    Mage:    The Forbidden Magic failed... I can tell you that much.
             Some of it was reflected back at us.
             The queen of the Yason... She stopped the Forbidden Magic.
    
    Haren:   Amila did? Impossible! They don’t have that kind of power!
    
    Mage:    The Forbidden Magic is very powerful. There’s only
             one thing that could overcome it... The Magna Carta.
    
    Calintz: Magna... Carta?
    
    
    *** Flashback ***
    The little boy and the old man are sitting around a campfire, not far      
    from the burnt buildings...                                                 
    
    Little kid: Magna Carta... That’s the power that can cause earthquakes
                or make it rain, but you need a bunch of sacred treasures
                to make it work, right?
    
    Old man:    Yes. The more sacred treasures you possess, 
                the more power you can call forth.
    
    Little kid: If we could use the Magna Carta, we could get revenge
                on the Yason.
    
    Old man:    You’ll never be able to use the Magna Carta is you think like that.
    
    Little kid: Why not?
    
    Old man:    The Magna Carta is unbelievably powerful. Unless you
                have the necessary training, you won’t be able to use it.
    
    Little kid: Then I’ll become powerful.
    
    Old man:    Listen, Mano. The Magna Carta can be evoked regardless  
                of one’s strength, but first you must understand how
                this world works.

    ( Alliance soldier comes running)
    Soldier: The blast Worms are attacking!
    
    Eonis:   Calintz: they have the advantage here.
    
    Calintz: Retreat to Lester. We need to regroup.

    ( Arriving back at the bridge, Eonis, Azel, Haren and Calintz are running     )
    ( through, when suddenly, a lance looking rod falls into the bridge, right    )
    ( in front of Calintz’s feet.                                                 )
    ( At the other end of the bridge a Yason girl is standing.                    )
    
    ???????: I won’t let you escape.
    
    Calintz: Another Worrier! 
    
    ( The girl, with a few hand gestures, summons a creature                      )
    Haren:   Steelheart...! 
    
    ( the creature attack the party, the fight is over if it’s HP fall below 50%)
    
    ( Steelheart is stomping on the bridge, which visibly can not hold much longer)
    
    Calintz: ( This bridge can’t support its weight...)
             Retreat.
    
    Haren:   No way! Not when I finally found it!
    
    Eonis:   You mean... that’s the creature that killed her?
    
    Haren:   Heh, I’ve been waiting for this.
             I’ll tear that thing apart... for Felicia!
    
    ( The creature is going closer to the party, the bridge is slowly crumbling)
    Calintz: I know how you feel... But the bridge won’t hold.
    
    Haren:   I ain’t moving till I beat it to the ground!
             If you wanna run, be my guest!
    
    Calintz: You know we won’t abandon you.
             We’ll fight to the death, if we have to.
    
    Haren:   Dammit! 
    
    Calintz: You know your target now. You’ll get another chance.
    
    ( Eonis runs away, Haren after a few second follows her.)
    
    Azel:    Captain. Let’s...
    
    Calintz: I’m fine. Go on ahead.

    Azel:    Captain! Hurry!
    
    ( Calintz is running away for the creature, but just before the end of the    )
    ( bridge turns around and faces it.                                           )
    
    Azel:    Captain !?

    Mano:  Whaddaya mean? He’s my friend and rival.
           I told you about him before. Don’t you remember?

    Calintz: Who’s there!?
    
    Girl:    Um, I...
    
    Calintz: ...You don’t seem to be a Yason.
    
    Girl:    ...I’m sorry.
    
    Calintz: Forgive me. I thought you were the enemy.
    
    ( She doesn’t say anything...                                                 )
    Calintz: Sorry if I startled you. I was just a reflex.
    
    Girl:    ...
    
    Calintz: Did I scare you that much? If you’re one of the priestesses 
             selected for this mission, then this shouldn’t faze you.
    
    Girl:    Huh? 
    
    Calintz: You’re not a priestess?
    
    Girl:    I... I’m sorry. I can’t remember anything.
    
    Calintz: You must be joking...
    
    
    
    Girl:    I woke up here, and found you nearby.
             But, you wouldn’t wake up no matter how much I shook you.
             So, I decided I better do something.
    
    Calintz: And so you used healing magic on me, right?
             That’s a power only priestesses of Amabat can use.
    
    Girl:    What’s Amabat?
    
    Calintz: I guess you really did loose your memory.
             What about your name?
    
    Girl:    Reith...?
    
    Calintz: Reith, huh... That’s a lovely name.
             Let’s go. To show my gratitude, I’ll take you to Amabat.

    Reith:   I didn’t know something like this could happen...
    
    Calintz: Why are you crying?
    
    Reith:   The author wanted to give it to someone.
             But, I took it without permission...
    
    Calintz: Don’t worry about it. Something must’ve 
             happened, and he wasn’t able to hand it over.
    
    Reith:   But... I think he wanted these clothes to reach
             their rightful owner.
    
    Calintz: This diary is pretty old. The author and the
             recipient are probably both dead. I think
             the author would want you to wear it.
    
    Reith:   ...Are you sure?
    
    Calintz: ... Yeah, I’m positive.
    
    Reith:   Alright...
    
    |                            Sei’un Scroll acquired!                          |
    
    Calintz: This is a Sacred Scroll...
             Why is there one here...?
    
    Reith:   What’s a Sacred Scroll?
    
    Calintz: It’s a Scroll with the essence of a Style written 
             in it. By reading it you will be able to learn
             the corresponding Style.
    
    Reith:   So, I can get stronger just by collecting
             Sacred Scrolls?
    
    Calintz: No, even if you learn a new Style, you can only
             use the most basic skills at first. The rest of the
             moves must be learned while using that Style.
    
    Reith:   Hmmm...
    
    Calintz: This is a Blue Magic Scroll. I can’t use it, so you should have it.
             Amabat priestesses should be able to mater it.
             But, remember that you can only use up to
             four Styles during battle.
             There’s a Style heading
             in the submenu, right?
    
    Reith:   Right.
    
    Calintz: There you can select which styles you’ll use
             in battle.
             The Styles you’re currently using will be
             displayed in blue, so remember to check before
             entering battle.
             It doesn’t matter at this point, since you
             only have two to choose from.
    
    Reith:   Right.
    
    
    ( Going on the other path, before the exit, are two Blast Worms waiting)
    Blast Worm: You’re...!
    
    Reith:      Oh, are you two lost, too?
    
    Blast Worm: Those are definitely humans.
    
    Reith:      Ummm...
    
    Calintz:    Forget them, Reith!
    
    Reith:      What’s wrong?
    
    Calintz:    They’re the ones that are after us.
    
    ( After killing the two Blast Worms)
    Blast Worm: Ugh... Th-The rumors are true...
                You are... strong...
    
    Reith:      Wait! You need help...! You’ll die!
    
    Calintz:    What are you doing?
                They’re Yason... the enemy!
                What do you think we were fighting for?
    
    Reith:      Calintz...
    
    Calintz:    You lost your memory because of them, right?
                How can you possibly have any compassion
                for them?
    
    Reith:      But...
    
    Blast Worm: Tch... I’d rather die... than be pitied
                by a human... Ugh...
    
    Calintz:    Did you hear that? 
                He doesn’t want your help.
    
    Reith:      ...I’m sorry.
    
    Calintz:    You may not understand now.
                But, when you get back your memory, you will.
    
    
    ( After leaving the cave, on the world map)
    Reith:   Where are we going?
    
    Calintz: To Garute. If we waste any more time here,
             the Yason will be on top of us.
    
    Reith:   Is... Is it alright is I come with you?
    
    Calintz: What are you saying?
             I’m not going to leave you here.
    
    Reith:   But... you seem angry.
    
    Calintz: I’m not. Besides, I promised to take you
             to Amabat.
    
    Reith:   But... You were... so scary... It’s like you were
             someone else when you were fighting the Yason.
             Are the Yason... really that bad?
    
    Calintz: Just focus on regaining your memory.
             Once you find out who you are, you’ll see
             them  for what they really are... Monsters...
    
    Reith:   ...O-Okay.
    
    
    
    ( on the world map)
    Astal:  It seems what we’re looking for it at...
            Mt. Rhyde...
    
    Neikan: ..........
    
    Astal:  No one will take it. Don’t worry.

    ( To the north, from the Save point, there are two Blast Worms...)
    Blast Worm 1: See! There WERE humans running around here!
    
    Blast Worm 2: We hit the jackpot! So, you gonna surrender?
                  If you leave your heard here, maybe we let you go!
                  Heheheh.........
    
    ( After killing the two Blast Worms, going forward on the road, there are     )
    ( other Blast Worms waiting...                                                )
    Calintz: *grunt* They just keep coming, one after another...
             Not even an ant could slip through...
    
    ( Following the main path, at the end of the road is a party of three Blast   )
    ( Worms: two "normals" and one that doesn’t look like any Blast Worms seen    )
    ( before...                                                                   )
    Calintz: Wait! That’s no ordinary Blast Worm...
             Let’s look for another route.
    
    Reith:   Okay, Calintz.
    
    
    ( Since nothing happens on the road, there’s only one way to go: back to the  )
    ( Save Point.                                                                 )
    ( Calintz and Reith are running, when they’re stopped by a familiar voice.    )
    Orha:    So, you’re still alive.
             I guess luck is on my side...
             Now I’ll get to kill you with my own hands.
    
    Calintz: Reith. When we start fighting just run.
             There’s no way that we can win. Just run as fast as you can.
    
    Reith:   But, what about you...?
    
    Calintz: Don’t worry, I catch up.
    
    Reith:   Promise me, okay?
    
    Calintz: Alright.
    
    ( during the fight)
    Calintz: Reith! Run! I’ll fend him off.
    
    Reith:   Okay! But, which way?
    
    ( after running to the upper part...)
    Reith:   It’s safe here, Calintz!
             Hurry, this way!
    
    Calintz: Alright! Let’s go! 
    
    ( Calintz and Reith are running away from Orha, Calintz is practically        )
    ( pulling Reith by her hand when they suddenly stop realizing they can not    )
    ( run any further. They are at the edge of a ravine...                        )
    Orha:    What a pity...
    
    ( Calintz steps in front of Reith, to protect her, and pulls out his sword.   )
    Orha:    I don’t let those who oppose me die easily.
             I’ll send what’s left of you to the Alliance.
    
    ( Calintz strikes at Orha, but he hurls him back with some kind of magic.     )
    ( Orha is ready to go, deal a finishing blow to Calintz, when Reith steps in  )
    ( his way, her arms stretched out, to protect Calintz. With a similar move    )
    ( she send Orha flying backwards.                                             )
    Orha:    It-It can’t be!
    
    ( Suddenly a signal fire appears, Calintz drags Reith to the ledge and they   )
    ( jump off.                                                                   )
    Orha:    This cannot be... Why is she here... !?
    
    ( From below, suddenly an “airplane” appears, flying away with the party.     )
    ( Orha is standing near the ledge, looking very angry...                      )
    Chris:   Awww yeah! The test flight for the 
             “Spruce Chris 22 ” is a success!
    
    Azel:    Captain, are you alright?
    
    Calintz: I’m fine, thanks.
    
    Azel:    You had us worried there.
    
    Calintz: It seems everyone got out safely.
             Chris’s inventions actually do come in handy
             from time to time.
    
    Chris:   You know it! I am the greatest inventor the
             Tears of Blood ever have! Hey Calintz,
             who’s the sweet thing standing next to you?
             Oh, I see how it is... Holding out on us.
    
    Reith:   My name is Reith.
    
    Chris:   Hmmm...
    
    Calintz: Don’t get the wrong idea. She saved my life.
             She seems to be an Amabat priestess,
             but she can’t remember who she is.
    
    Azel:    ... I see. Thank you for saving Captain Calintz.
             My name is Azel.
    
    Reith:   Nice to meet you.
    
    Chris:   Hey, Calintz... Is she really okay?
    
    Calintz: I’m thinking of taking her to Amabat.
             They might know who she is, and they
             might be able to treat her.
    
    Chris::  Well, she’s pretty hot...
             Why don’t you just have her join us?
             Every mercenary group needs
             at least one hot babe...
    
    Reith:   Ahh!
    
    Calintz: What’s wrong with the ship?
    
    Chris:   I think I pissed her off.
             She didn’t like me flirting with someone else?
    
    Azel:    Chris! How can you be so calm?!
             Is that smoke?! I have a bad feeling about this...
    
    Chris:   Heh, I hope you brought an extra pair
             of underwear! At least I get to show you
             my mad landing skills!

             the Captain. You’re amazing Chris!

    Reith:     I-I’m sorry! I’m sorry!
    
    Soldier 2: Healing...? Are you a priestess?

    Soldier 2: Huh?
    
    Calintz:   Oh, come on...
    
    ( Calintz, Chris and Azel also goes to the Soldiers.)
    Calintz:   She’s a priestess of Amabat. It seems she lost her memory
               when the Blast Worms attacked.
    
    Soldier 2: Oh, I see.
    
    Soldier 1: Well if it isn’t the Tears of Blood. You look pretty confident 
               for mercenaries that just blunder their assignment.
    
    Soldier 2: Hey, Stop it!
    
    Calintz:   You must be new... Is that how you speak to an officer?
    
    Soldier 1: You wanna go? I’m not afraid of you. Don’t tell me 
               you forgot what you did to the village of Inade!
               You destroyed my hometown!
    
    Calintz:   I apologize for failing to save your village.
               But, I warned the villagers to evacuate.
    
    Azel:      That’s right. Besides, the Yasons were the one’s
               who started the fire...

    Soldier 1: Um... priestess...
    
    Azel:      It’s not your fault Reith. Now, let’s go.
    
    
    ( right after speaking with the two soldiers)
    Azel:      Let’s go to the inn and meet up 
               with Eonis and Haren.
    
    
    ( at the inn, in Lester)
    Eonis:   Are you happy that you gave us such a scare?
    
    Calintz: Sorry. But, at least everyone’s alright.

    ( an even nastier glance.                                                    )
    Eonis:   Oh, my.
    
    Calintz: Why am I being assaulted when I barely escaped with my life?
    
    Haren:   Because you’re an idiot... You wanna die?!
    
    Calintz: There was no other alternative.
    
    Haren:   Yeah, sure there wasn’t.
    
    ( Eonis suddenly realizes, that Calintz brought a new person with him)
    Eonis:   My, you’ve brought a cute young lady with you.
    
    Azel:    She saved the Captain’s life. She’s from Amabat,   
             but is seems she’s lost her memory.
    
    ( Reith goes to Eonis...)
    Reith:   I’m Reith.
    
    Eonis:   I’m Eonis. Reith, thank you saving Calintz.
    
    ( Reith then goes to Haren.)
    Reith:   I’m Reith.
    
    ( Haren just turns away, but Reith goes to the other side, so she can be face 
    to face with Haren)
    Reith:   I’m Reith.
    
    Haren:   What the hell’s wrong with you?
    
    Reith:   I’m Reith.
    
    Haren:   Alright already. The name’s Haren.
    
    Eonis:   Is it because of her amnesia...?
    
    Calintz: Probably. Amabat may be looking for a missing priestess.
             I was thinking of taking her there.
    
    |                   Eonis, Haren joined Calintz’s party.                      |
    
    Calintz: While we’re here, let’s pay our respects to
             General Agreian.
    
    Azel:    I think he’s at the Alliance Headquarters.
             It’s on the west side of the village, right?
    
    Chris:   Uhh... Doesn’t that mean we already passed it?
    
    
    ( at the Eastern side of Lester, in front of on of the buildings)
    Agreian: Is that you, Calintz?
    
    Calintz: General Agreian, I’m glad to see you’re alright.
    
    Agreian: I should be the one saying that.
             You’re the one who disappeared without a trace.
             You’ll be the death of me you know...
    
    Calintz: Don’t say that...
    
    Agreian: Well, I knew you were safe...
             So, is there something wrong?
    
    Calintz: Yes, I wanted to ask you something...
    
    
    Agreian: We’ll have her treated at Amabat.
             My mother should know about 
             any missing priestesses.
             I’ll arrange for soldiers to escort her there.
    
    
    ( Right beside the Inn, is a Priest standing, waiting...)
    Priest:  The Tears of Blood...
             You couldn’t have come at a better time...
    
    Calintz: Is there something wrong?
    
    Priest:  Amabat has sent some clerics to treat our soldiers,
             but they still haven’t arrived. They may have
             run into monsters and are having a hard time.
             Ever since that Chi storm, I’ve been hearing 
             that monsters are turning violent, so I’m 
             a bit worried.
    
    Calintz: So, you want me to find them and escort them
             here?
    
    Priest:  Yes, please.

    ( After walking around, the party finds the clerics, being attacked by a huge
    monster)
    Eonis:   Calintz, the clerics are being attacked!
    
    Calintz: Everyone, prepare yourselves!
             We’re getting them out of here!
    
    ( after the monster is killed)
    Calintz: I am the leader of the Tears of Blood, Calintz.
             I am under the orders of the Alliance to escort
             you. Are you alright?
    
    Cleric:  I’m fine. Thank you for saving us.
    
    Calintz: Then let us hurry to Lester.
    
    ( on the road, back the Lester, near the village, is a Soldier waiting)
    Soldier: Good work. Here’s what we owe you.
    
    Calintz: We’ll be on our way then.
    
    ( Calintz goes away, leaving the 2 clerics with the Alliance Soldier)
    Cleric:  I heard that the Tears of Blood were just
             a bunch of mercenaries, but they seem
             friendly to me.
    
    Soldier: They give respect when respect is given to them.
             That’s how they are.

    Soldier 1: Did you hear? The Blast Worm that was captured
               is a spy for the Four Warriors.
    
    Soldier 2: Really? Man, whoever caught him will get 
               a nice reward...
    
    Soldier 1: Is that all you can think about? 
               What I’m trying to say is that there’s a chance
               we’ll find out some secret.
    
    Soldier 2: And after that, he’ll be publicly executed, huh?
    
    Reith:     .........
    
    
    Calintz:   Reith, let’s rest at the inn.
    
    Reith:     Okay.
    
    
    ( At the inn)
    Calintz: Good night, Reith.
    
    Reith:   You too, Calintz.
    
    
    *** Flashback ***
    Woman: Alright, that’s it for today’s lesson.
    
    Two kids, Hugo and Mano are standing in front of the woman, they bow.
    Kid:   Thank you very much!
    
    Mano is slowly walking...
    Mano: Ahhh!
    
    He suddenly notices a person lying on the road.
    The person has a butterfly shaped mark on his left arm.
    ????: Ugh...
    
    
    Mano is running towards the village, when he realizes he’s too late: there are
    dead bodies lying around and the houses are on fire.
    In the door of one of the houses is a person standing, who looks like the
    one Mano found lying in the wood. He’s gloating over the destruction...
    
    ?????: Aaahhh!!!
    
    
    *** End of flashback ***
    
    
    ( Calintz, who’s sleeping on a chair, next to a table, suddenly wakes up.     )
    ( He looks around, the sun is shining through the window of the room.         )
    
    Azel:    Captain!
    
    Calintz: What’s wrong?
    
    Chris:   The hottie was kidnapped by the Yason 
             we saw yesterday.
    
    Calintz: How did that happen?
    
    Eonis:   I’m sorry, it’s my fault.
             I didn’t notice Reith leaving our room...
    
    Azel:    I’m sure she’s fine.
             We know where that Yason was heading.
    
    Haren:   Was she going out for a good time or something?
             Geez, what a pain.
    
    Azel:    Don’t talk about her like that.
             She saved the Captain’s life!
             Now, let’s go and rescue her!
    
    |                      Reith left Calintz’s party.                            |
    
    
    ( After Calintz’s party leaves Lester, the scene changes to a party of 3 Blast)
    ( Worms. A fourth Blast Worm ( Eckran), the one from Lester appears, along    )
    ( with Reith.                                                                 )
    
    Minet:  Eckran!? Is that you?
    
    Eckran: Minet!? Why are you here?
    
    Minet:  I’m glad to see you are safe.
    
    Eckran: What are you doing here? You’re not here
            to save me, are you? Another mission?
    
    Minet:  We’re...
            Hm? Who’s this?
    
    Reith:  ........
    
    Eckran: A hostage. She’s a priestess of Amabat.
            I plan to release her after I get away.
    
    Minet:  I see...
    
    
    ( Calintz’s party, not far from the Village of Lester, founds 
    
    
    Eckran:  Why!? We don’t need a hostage anymore!
             Why can’t we just let one human go?
    
    Minet:   She’s coming with us.
             I... can’t tell you the reason...
             Who’s there!
    
    Calintz: Reith, are you alright?
    
    Reith:   ...I’m sorry.
    
    Minet?   That was fast...
    
    ( While fighting the Blast Worms, after hitting Eckran once)
    Calintz: Do you know a Yason with a Vindi that
             looks like a black butterfly on his left arm?
    
    Eckran:  What are you talking about?
    
    ( After finishing both Eckran and Minet)
    Eckran:  Sorry for using you. I won’t forget your kindness.
    
    Reith:   .........
    
    Haren:   Kindness? More like thanks for becoming 
             my hostage...
    
    Minet:   Let’s get out of here, Eckran.
    
    Eckran:  Alright.
    
    
    Reith:   I’m sorry. It’s my fault.
    
    Eonis:   Reith, it’s okay now.
    
    Haren:   An apology won’t cut it.
    
    Azel:    Haren.
    
    ( Calintz’s is reaching out towards the head of Reith, who, as she’s afraid   )
    ( he’s going to hit her, draws her head away. Calintz just gently strokes her
    ( hair...)
    
    Calintz: *sigh*
    
    ( Eonis is smiling, and Haren is just shaking his head angrily.               )
    
    Calintz: Let’s head back.
    
    |                    Reith joined Calintz’s party.                            |
    
    
    ( Arriving back at Lester, the Tears of Blood bump into the welcome party     )
    ( of General Tazma, General Agreian and two Alliance soldiers.                )
    
    Soldier 1: That definitely her! She opened the cell door 
               and let the prisoner free!
    
    Soldier 2: This is a violation of the law!
    
    Calintz:   Here we go again.
    
    Chris:     It must be easy, working for the Alliance.
               All you have to do to get paid is go by the book.
    
    Tazma:     According to these men, that woman freed
               the Yason prisoner. Is that true?
    
    Calintz:   What are you talking about?
    
    Soldier 1: Trying to play dumb, huh? I saw it with my own eyes.
               She’s the one who opened the door.
    
    Azel:      *sigh* You’re pretty bold with the General on your side.
    
    Agreian:   Calintz, explain yourself. There are rumors that 
               she freed the Yason.
    
    ( Calintz turns to Reith)
    Calintz:   Is it true?
    
    ( Hardly noticeably, but Reith nods her head)
    Calintz:   Are you crazy!?
               I told you not to trust them! Why didn’t you listen!?
    
    Eonis:     Calintz!
    
    Tazma:     General Agreian, we should arrest her immediately.
    
    Calintz:   Wait! She’s a priestess who participated in the 
               recent operation.
               But she has amnesia. She remembers nothing
               about the Alliance or the war against the Yason 
               She’s even forgotten who she is.
    
    Tazma:     What proof do you have? The Blast Worm she freed
               has vital information about the Four Warriors.
               And now, we’ve lost him.
    
    Agreian:   Arrest her. If she is a priestess,
               then Amabat should handle this.
    
    Azel:      But...
    
    Tazma:     Enough! Be grateful that we didn’t arrest your mercenaries, too.
    
    Soldier 1: Now, come with us, priestess. 
    
    Reith:     ...No.
    
    ( Calintz draws his sword, and hold it at the neck of the Soldier)
    Soldier 1: W-W-What are you doing!?
    
    Calintz:   The prisoner must still be in the area.
               If I recapture him, will you let her go?
    
    Agreian:   ...I’m surprised you’d go to that much trouble.
    
    Calintz:   She saved my life. I’m just returning the favor.
    
    Agreian:   Very well. If you can capture the Yason, we’ll set her free.
    
    Tazma:     You’re going to trust this brute?
    
    Agreian:   Not only is the girl suffering from amnesia, 
               but it seems her mentality has regressed to that of a child.
               Punishing her would serve no purpose.
               Please, give them the opportunity to redeem themselves.
    
    Tazma:     Hmph. How much longer do you plan on making
               Excuses for them?
    
    Calintz:   My sincerest thanks, General Agreian.
    
    ( Calintz takes his sword away for the neck of the soldier, and turns to Reith)
    Calintz:   You wait here.
    
    |                      Reith left Calintz’s party.                            |
    
    ( Through the world map, the party is taken to Amrond Woods, in Yason – Roven,)
    ( where, not far from the starting point, they find the two Blast Worms.      )
    
    Minet:   I was ordered to take that woman with us.
             Unharmed...
    
    Eckran:  Why a human girl...?
    
    Minet:   I have no idea! They’re already here!
    
    Eckran:  They’re fast! Looks like they 
             really want our heads.
    
    Calintz: ...
    
    ( during the fight)
    Calintz: Why are you trying to kidnap Reith?
    
    Minet:   Why don’t you worry about yourself?
    
    ( after finishing both Blast Worms)
    
    Minet:   Eckran, run! If you’re caught, you’ll be killed!
    
    Haren:   Hmmm... So, they weren’t lying about you
             knowing some sort of secret.
    
    Eckran:  ... Minet, you run. ... I’m done for.
             I’ll just slow you down.
    
    Calintz: Give up. It’s useless.
    
    Minet:   Unfortunately, it looks that way.
             I was supposed to free you, Eckran.
             But, if that’s not possible...
             They want me to kill you...
             I couldn’t let anyone else do it...
             So, I accepted the mission.
    
    Eckran:  I thought so.
    
    Minet:   I’m sorry, Eckran... I did my best...
             But, it’s all over now. At least you won’t die alone...
             We’ll take the Tears of Blood with us!
    
    Calintz: What are you doing!?
    
    Azel:    Captain! Look out!!!
    
    ( The sound of an explosion can be heard...)
    
    Haren:   Dammit...
    
    ( The injured Azel is lying on the ground, held Eonis.)
    Eonis:   Azel! Azel... Hang in there!
    
    Azel:    Captain...? Is everyone alright?
    
    Calintz: ...Yeah.
    
    Azel:    Thank goodness... I’ve finally become useful.
    
    Calintz: We’ve always needed you.
    
    Eonis:   Once we take you back to Lester
             and get you treated, you’ll be fine.
    
    Azel:    Okay...
    
    Calintz: Damn the Yason.
    ( He starts walking away...)
    
    Calintz: Let’s go.
    
    ( Back at the inn, Calintz is watching Azel, who’s lying on a bed. It is      )
    ( unknown of if he’s sleeping or unconscious, but he does look really badly.  )
    Eonis:   I’ll be watching Azel.
    
    |                      Eonis left Calintz’s party.                            |
    
    ( at the Alliance Headquarters)
    Tazma:   What’s wrong? I don’t see
             the Blast Worm around.
    
    Calintz: He, and the other Blast Worm trying to aid 
             him, decided they couldn’t escape and killed 
             themselves. 
    
    Agreian: I see... I commend you for your efforts.
             Reith is in the cell. You can release her.
    
    Tazma:   Commended !? He failed to capture the spy!
             Besides, shouldn’t we first at least confirm
             Whether or not that Reith is a priestess?
    
    Calintz: Please, be my guest... 
             But, the healing magic she used on me
             should be proof enough.
    
    Agreian: I believe him.
    
    Tazma:   What are you saying!?
             Why are you so easy on them!?
             They have no respect for authority!?
    
    Agreian: They risk their lives to carry out dangerous 
             mission. I think the Alliance owes them
             a debt of gratitude.
    
    Tazma:   I’m more than willing to give credit where it’s 
             deserved. But I’d appreciate if they’d show
             a little more respect!
    
    ( Tazma goes away...)
    
    Agreian: Don’t worry out him. Anyways, good job.
             You can set Reith free.
    
    Calintz: Thank you very much, General.
    
    ( In the cell, in front of a shabby bed, Reith is sitting on the floor.)
    Calintz: It’s all over now. They’re letting you go.
             You don’t like being in the dark, do you? Sorry about that.
    
    Reith:   What happened to the Yason?
    
    Calintz: You’re still worried about the Yason?
             He won’t escape again. He fought back... so I killed him.
    
    Reith:   How could you...?
    
    Calintz: Because the Yason are our enemies. Crying won’t change that.
             How can you feel sorry for them after being locked up here?
    
    Reith:   I’m sorry. But, I...
    
    Calintz: I don’t want to hear your apologies. If you don’t believe me,
             then go and see for yourself how this world works.
             The world won’t wait for you to regain your memories.
    
    ( Calintz starts walking out of the cell)
    Reith:   Do you think all the Yason should be killed, Calintz?
    
    Calintz: Of course.
    
    Reith:   Even children?
    
    Calintz: When those children grow up, they’ll turn against us.
    
    Reith:   How do you know? They might not!
    
    Calintz: You’re too naive. It’s easy to believe that crap when
             you’ve never had anything taken away from you.
    
    
    ( Outside, before the building of the Alliance Headquarters)
    Calintz: I’m worried about Azel.
             Let’s go check up on him.
    
    
    ( At the inn)
    Calintz: How’s Azel doing?
    
    Eonis:   They’ve finished emergency treatment.
             We just have to wait for him to wake up...
             But, there are so many injured soldiers, they
             don’t have time to properly treat him. We
             should finish treating him at the Headquarters.
    
    Calintz: I see... You must be tired. I’ll switch with you.
             You should get some rest.
    
    Eonis:   You look pretty bad yourself.
             Did something happen?
    
    Calintz: Don’t worry... It’s nothing.
    
    Eonis:   Alright then... Good night.
    
    
    ( Back, at the cell, at the Alliance Headquarters)
    Eonis: Hi, there. Mind if I join you?
    
    ( Reith, still sitting on the ground, looks up, and sees Eonis)
    Eonis: Please, don’t be upset with Calintz.
           He did all he could to save you.
    
    Reith: But, why did he say those things?
    
    Eonis: He just wants you to realize the harsh reality of the world,
           before you end up getting hurt. You know, Calintz isn’t 
           the only one who has a grudge against the Yason.
    
    Reith: If the Yason hurt me... do you think I would hate them?
    
    Eonis: I wouldn’t want something like that to happen to you.
           We’re facing those hardships so that others don’t have to.
           So much hatred has built up...
           This war can no longer be stopped simply with words.
           But, I believe the war will end some day,
           Even if the only thing I can do now is fight.
    
    
    ( At the inn, standing beside the injured Azel is Calintz and Reith, who )
    ( is trying to heal Azel)
    Reith:   Why didn’t you tell me about Azel’s injuries?
             I came here as soon as I found out.
    
    Calintz: ...sorry about earlier. I just wanted to...
    
    Reith:   Eonis explained everything to me. 
             You’re really a confusing person, you know.
             It’s almost as if you wanted me to hate you.
             Calintz... I’m gonna do whatever I can do to make a difference.
             Right now, all I can do is heal people’s injuries.
             But some day, I wanna try and find a way to end the war.
             Is that too optimistic? Am I being too naïve?
    
    Calintz: Who knows?
    
    Reith:   Huh? What kind of answer is that?
    
    Calintz: Uh... Well, it seems like a god idea.
             You certainly have a talent for healing.
    
    Reith:   Then I’ll do my best.
    
    Azel:    Uggh... I can’t take it anymore.
    
    ( Azel suddenly sits up on the bed.
    Calintz: A-Azel...!
    
    Azel:    Sorry for interrupting when it was getting good, but I’ve been
             laying here all day and my back is killing me. *chuckle*
    
    |             Reith, Azel and Eonis joined Calintz’s party.                   |
    
    
    Calintz: Azel is recovering fine, but he needs more rest.
             We’ll have to stay here for a while.
    
    Chris:   The shouldn’t we be looking for some work?
             Lehas’ll be on our ass when we get back:
             “What were you doing all this time? Playing?”
    
    Haren:   That’s for sure... My head hurts just thinkin’ about it.
    
    
    ( Meanwhile in Epentar, two Blast Worms, a red Blast Worm and Orha are        )
    ( standing in front of the throne, where Amila is sitting.                    )
    Orha:       Are you ready?
    
    Amila:      Everyone will be startled when they see me.
    
    Blast Worm: No, no. You look absolutely stunning.
    
    Amila:      Are you being sarcastic? I wouldn’t blame you,
                since I look like this...
    
    Blast Worm: I wouldn’t dream of it, Your Highness.
                Now, you must go. Your people are waiting for you.
    
    ( Amila stands up, but while standing, from under her mask, she looks at Orha.)
    ( for a few seconds, he’s looking back at Amila, but then he’s turning his    )
    ( head down.)
    
    
    ( Some time later, in the same room is Orha, with one of the Blast Worms.)
    Blast Worm: Are you worried?
    
    Orha:       ...No.
    
    Blast Worm: We can’t hide it forever. There’s no other way.
                Support for Her Majesty grown immensely 
                since she reflected the Forbidden Magic.
                If we tell them that the Queen sacrificed her life for the
                sake of her people... then all Yason will band together.
    
    Orha:       But, if people learn the truth, then an uprising could result.
    
    Blast Worm: Most of the population is too concerned with Rheuma
                for something like that to happen. As long as the Blast Worms
                are under our command, we have nothing to fear.
                Since it has come to his, there is a secret that you should know.
                But, we will discuss it soon enough with Her Majesty.
    
    ( On the world map)
    Amila:  Everyone must be surprised, for this is 
            my true self. But, I am content because
            I was able to protect my people.
    
    
    Azhadi: Our queen had finally fallen prey to Rheuma...
            I will miss fighting alongside her.
    
    Carian: Look at how fast her skin is turning...
            She doesn’t have much longer...
    
    Azhadi: You sure look happy...
    
    Carian: Of course I am. She’s never been nice to me.
            I thought she’d never die, but to think that
            she’s contracted with Rheuma...
            I can hardly contain myself...
    
    Azhadi: The candidates for the next in line are
            Probably jumping in joy right now.
    
    Carian: ...They’ll most likely attempt to get us on their
            sides as long as Rheuma rules this world.
            Hmmhm... Even if Amila didn’t contract 
            the disease, she wouldn’t have been long 
            for this world anyway...
    
    
    *** Flashback ***
    Mano is sitting on the ground, standing beside him is a girl.
    
    Mano: Sh-Shut up! This is my first time fighting a monster!
    
    Girl: How can you be so stupid?
    
    Mano: Don’t call me stupid!
    
    Girl: You’ve never fought a monster, but you wander into a forest?
          That’s just plain stupid. What were you thinking?
    
    Mano: *sniff*
    
    Girl: What? Now you’re crying?
    
    
    Mano is still sitting just like before, but now the girl is sitting beside him.
    
    Girl: Geez.
    
    Mano: What?
    
    Girl: If you’re afraid of getting hurt, then there’s no way 
          you’ll get stronger. “No pain, no gain.” Right?
          You want me to teach you? Who’s your opponent?
          I’ll train you so you can beat him in less then a month.
    
    
    Mano is waiting for the girl in the forest...
    Mano: I’ve been waiting.
    
    Girl: For me? ...Really?
    
    Mano: That move you taught me was amazing. 
          You should have seen the look on Hugo’s face.
    
    
    During another fighting lesson...
    Girl: It’s scary how much you’ve improved.
    
    Mano: Then, tell me your name.
    
    Girl: Okay... If you can beat me.
    
    
    
    Some time later, at their usual meeting place...
    Mano: What happened to her...? I know I can win now...
          But, where did she go...?
    
    *** End of flashback ***
    
    
    ( In front of the inn, there is an Alliance Soldier waiting.)
    Soldier: General Agreian is waiting for you at the inn.
    
    Calintz: He is? Thanks.
    
    ( At the inn)
    Agreian: Calintz, I’ve been waiting for you.
    
    Calintz: General, did you need me for anything?
    
    Agreian: I have another job for you.
             I hear Mirna has been under siege by monsters
             since the Chi storm. It seem the monsters have
             grown restless.
    
    Calintz: So, am I to go to Mirna, sir?
    
    Agreian: You should avoid moving with the Alliance.
             You haven’t been on General Tazma’s
             good side lately.
    
    Calintz: I understand. I will go there as soon as I stop
             by the Headquarters.
    
    Agreian: Also, the young lady... Reith, was it?
             I have selected her escorts.
             I will send them to Amabat with her.
             I have ordered them to wait at the village 
             entrance tomorrow morning. Bring her there.
    
    Calintz: Thank you.
    
    Agreian: ...Still, I am a bit surprised in the amount 
             of interest you’ve shown in that girl.
    
    Calintz: As I said before, she saved my life.
             I simply want to return the favor.
    
    Agreian: *chuckle* I see... At any rate, good luck.
             The Forbidden Magic has failed, but the war
             continues and we are still in need of your help.
    
    
    ( At the inn, Calintz is talking with Reith...)
    Calintz: Tomorrow morning, some soldiers will be waiting 
             at the entrance. They’ll take you home.
    
    Reith:   Calintz... You’re not coming?
    
    Calintz: I have a mission. I know I promised you, but... sorry.
    
    Reith:   ... I see.
    
    Calintz: I hope you regain your memory in Amabat.
    
    Reith:   Me, too.
    
    Calintz: I’m still grateful to you for saving my life back there.
    
    Reith:   I thank you for saving me, too.
    
    Calintz: Good night, then.
    
    ( Calintz starts walking away, Reith want to say something to him)
    Reith:   Uh... Ummm...
    
    ( Calintz turns his head back to Reith)
    Calintz: Yes?
    
    Reith:   Um... Take care, Calintz.
    
    Calintz: Thanks, I will.
    
    
    *** Flashback ***
    Mano and the kid he found are at the same forest, where Mano found him.
    
    ????: Thank you. You saved my life.
    
    Mano: You’re a Yason... but your ears are like human’s.
    
    ????: Hmph... Who cares about something like that?
    
    Mano: You better leave as soon as you feel better.
          I anyone finds you... they’ll kill you.
    
    ????: Yeah, I know.
          You’re scared of me, aren’t you? Because I’m Yason.
    
    Mano: No, I’m not. I...
    
    ????: Yea, you are. Don’t worry. I’ll be leaving soon.
    
    *** End of flashback ***
    
    
    |                       Reith left Calintz’s party.                           |
    
    
    ( In front of the inn)
    Eonis:   Don’t you even want to say goodbye?
             She was crying all night yesterday.
             You’re the only one she can rely on.
    
    Calintz: She’s a priestess of Amabat. It’s better for the
             both of us if we stayed away from each other.
    
    Chris:   Man, that’s cold, even for you.
             She’s so cute, too.
    
    Azel:    If you say so, then I’ll comply...
             But, Reith will be disappointed, I imagine.
    
    Haren:   No sweat off my back. She’s more trouble than
             anything else. We don’t need someone who
             sympathizes with the Yason around us.
    
    Eonis:   But, doesn’t she remind you of Felicia?
    
    Haren:   Don’t be stupid!
    
    Eonis:   I meant no offense, Haren.
    
    Calintz: Let’s go back to Headquarters first.
             We need to report the situation to Lehas.

    ( Heading back to the Headquarters, on the road there is little girl, waiting.)
    Azel:  We’re back!
    
    ( He notices the little girl, who is holding a strange looking doll.)
    Azel:  Oh, Maya how’ve you been?
    
    ( She doesn’t say a word, she’s just stroking the doll.)
    
    Chris: Have you been a good girl, my little princess?
           ...You just get cuter every day!
    
    Haren: Here we go again... Who do you think you are, her father?
    
    Chris: How can I ignore such an adorable girl?
           I mean, Maya deserved a good-looking papa like me, right?
    
    Haren: Papa? With that face? More like a child molester.
    
    Chris: *chuckle* Haren’s just jealous, isn’t he Maya?
           I have the face of a warm, caring father, right?
    
    Haren: Just listening to this fool makes my head hurt.
    
    ( Haren walks away.)
    
    Chris: Why doesn’t anyone get it?
    
    
    ( At the Conference Room)
    Lehas:   It seems you’ve all returned safely.
    
    Eonis:   Yes. We finally finished the mission.
    
    Lehas:   Is that so?
    
    Chris:   Absolutely. We even collected y paycheck.
             We all hurried back to see your face light up with joy.
    
    Lehas:   I wish you were always this eager to please.
             We’re on the verge of bankruptcy, here.
    
    ( Lehas walks out of the room)
    Eonis:   She has a one-track mind, doesn’t she?
    
    Calintz: You’ve all done well. You can rest for the day.
    
    
    
    Haren:   Why did Agreian tell us to go to a small town
             like Mirna all of a sudden?
    
    Eonis:   I think he was just being considerate 
             by sending us away from General Tazma.
    
    Lehas:   What did you do this time?
             The Tears of Blood isn’t your group.
    
    Haren:   I don’t have to take this from someone who’s
             just kicking back here while we do all the work.
    
    Azel:    Ease up, Haren. When are you two ever going
             to be nice to each other?
    
    Calintz: We’re going to Mirna, regardless. 
             I just thought that you should know.
    
    Lehas:   You do realize that I should always be consulted
             on matters such as this. You can’t just keep
             doing whatever you please.
    
    
    ( Going out of the Headquarters, is Maya standing, holding her doll.          )
    ( Calintz goes to her.                                                        )
    Calintz: What’s wrong? 
    
    ( Maya just points to an injured Alliance Soldier, who’s laying on the ground.)
    ( Calintz runs to him, and kneels beside him.                                 )
    Calintz: Hey, are you okay?
    
    Soldier: H-Help her, please... Help Reith...
    
    Calintz: Reith!? What about Reith?
    
    Soldier: We were... attacked by the Yason...
             at Mt. Rhyde... Reith was...
    
    ( After telling these, the soldier dies.)
    
    Calintz: Hey! Hold on! Hey!
    
    ( Hearing Calintz shouting, Eonis comes running.)
    Eonis:   Calintz? What’s wrong?
    
    Calintz: Reith has been kidnapped by the Yason.
    ( Calintz stands up from the dead soldier)
    
    Calintz: He said it happened at Mt. Rhyde. I have to hurry.
    
    Eonis:   Are you going to save her?
    
    Calintz: He gave his life to tell us this. I’m going to Mt. Rhyde.
             You take care of Mirna.
    
    ( Calintz runs away.)
    Eonis:   Calintz! 
    
    ( Hearing Eonis, Haren appears)
    Haren:   What’s wrong?
    
    Eonis:   I’ve never seen Calintz so upset.
    
    Haren:   It doesn’t looks like he’s heading for Mirna.
    
    Eonis:   He’s not.
    
    Haren:   That idiot. What’s he getting us into this time?
             Let’s go, you guys! We’re following the Captain!
    
    
    Lehas:   This happens every time.
    
    Eonis:   I’m sorry.
    
    Lehas:   Well, aren’t you going to join them?
    
    Eonis:   But... What about Mirna?
    
    Lehas:   It’s probably nothing serious. 
             I’m sure they can handle it.
    
    Eonis:   Thank you.
    
    ( On the world map)
    Eonis:   I’m coming, too. You’re going to need my help.
    
    Calintz: What about Mirna?
    
    Eonis:   Lehas was the one who told me to come along.
             I hate to place our responsibilities
             upon her even though she said not to worry
             about Mirna.
    
    Haren:   Don’t worry about Lehas; she can manage.
             Mt. Rhyde has more priority now since 
             the Yason are there.
    
    Chris:   You ready to roll, Maya?
             Let’s go save the princess.

    Calintz: She must have ran towards Mt. Rhyde.
    
    
    ( on the world map)
    Blast Worm 1: We’ve killed all the Alliance Soldiers.
                  The girl ran into the cave, but she won’t get far.
    
    Blast Worm 2: Let’s get ready to pull out.
                  We’ll secure an escape route while you can capture
                  the girl!
    
    Blast Worm 1: Yes, sir.
    
    Blast Worm 2: I need not to remind you that we need to capture
                  her intact. You will suffer greatly if any harm
                  should befall her.
    
    Blast Worm 1: Understand.
    
    
    ( In the same area, after walking down on a few stairs, is a Yason waiting)

    Calintz:    I hear you are looking for a human girl. What are you up to!?
    
    Blast Worm: You overheard...!? Dammit!
                I’m not telling you anything!

    Calintz:    Tell us! Where is the girl!?

    ( guarded by a Blast Worm. ) 
    Calintz:    They must be keeping Reith in here.
    
    Blast Worm: Who’s there !?
    
    Calintz:    We’re here for the girl.

                been snooping around here.

                Who gave you the orders?
    
    Blast Worm: I... I don’t know...
    
    Calintz:    Tell me!!
    
    Blast Worm: I told you... I don’t know...
    
    Haren:      If you don’t wanna talk, then you don’t need
                this jaw of yours, do you?
    
    Blast Worm: ...Gen... General Roxy...
    
    Haren:      Roxy? She’s here, too?
                Perfect.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    ( Walking around in the area, the party ends up before the entrance of a cave,)
    ( which is guarded by a Blast Worm. ) 
    Blast Worm: Who’re you!?
    
    Calintz:    Hmph... You don’t seem very strong.
    
    Blast Worm: What!?
    
    ( Beating the Blast Worm, Calintz enters the cave, which leads to a larger    )
    ( “room”, with large glowing stones, which look like some kind of altars.     )
    ( In front of one of these stones Reith is sitting. She lifts up her head,    )
    ( and sees Calintz.                                                           )
    
    Reith:   Calintz! 
    
    ( She runs to Calintz.) 
    Reith:   I didn’t think I’d see you again.
    
    Calintz: You alright?
    
    Reith:   Yes.
    
    ( Reith and Calintz are standing in front of each other, but none of them     )
    ( moves towards the other one. Chris and Azel are silently watching them, and )
    ( smiling they look at each other. )
    
    Reith:   I was hoping that you’d come, and now here you are.
             I can’t believe it!
    
    Calintz: On of the Alliance Soldiers came all the way to
             Headquarters to notify us... What happened?
    
    Reith:   I don’t really know. The Yason just attacked us...
             I ran in here and hid as best as I could... But, they found me...
    
    Calintz: Everything’s okay, now. Let’s get out of here.
    
    ( They are starting to leave the place, when Roxy enters with her beast.      )
    ( Steelheart suddenly leaps at them, but Reith stands in between Calintz and  )
    ( the beast. For a few seconds a shield is defending them, but it disappears, )
    ( and Reith falls onto the ground. Calintz runs beside her.                   )
    
    Calintz: Reith!
    
    ( Calintz is looking at Roxy, but she’s just standing silently.)
    
    ( After the battle with Steelheart, Haren and Calintz are watching Roxy and   )
    ( Steelheart, as if they’re uncertain what to do next.                        )
    
    Roxy:    I won’t be as careless as the last time.
    
    Haren:   ...You know the Sendoh region of Maracatte?
    
    Roxy:    That’s not part of Maracatte. It belongs to us Yasons.
    
    Haren:   Makes no difference... You summoned that beast and
             slaughtered every human in sight. Remember that?
    
    Roxy:    And what about all the Yason that was killed?
    
    Haren:   You bastards... You murdered Felicia!
             She was just trying to protect the villagers from that thing.
             Only her arm... That was all I could find of here!
    
    Roxy:    The fact is, you’re as guilty as we are.
    
    Haren:   Shut up!!
    
    Eonis:   Haren, wait! Reith’s badly hurt.
    
    ( Calintz turns around to see Reith, who’s laying in the ground, in pain.     )
    Reith:   Ugh... Ooooh...
    
    Roxy:    She’s been poisoned.
    
    Calintz: Give me the antidote. Now!
    
    Roxy:    You think we’d make an antidote? This poison has
             no effect on Yason. So, there’s no need for one.
    
    ( Calintz is looking at Roxy, Haren is shaking his arms, when...)
    Reith:   Calintz... Stop it...
    
    ( Reith holds out his hand towards Calintz, when the tip of her hand starts  )
    ( glow. The cave starts rumbling...)
    
    Roxy:    ........!!
    
    (.... on the ground a large, glowing, magic circle looking drawing appears,  )
    ( and along with the sign, a monster also appears.                           )
    
    Haren:   A monster!?
    
    Roxy:    ( This isn’t just any monster... Even with my power
             I couldn’t control it. It’s too dangerous.)
    
    Haren:   Where the hell did it come from...?
    
    Roxy:    ...Time to go.
    
    Calintz: Hey, come back here!
    
    ( Beating the monster, it slowly fades away, and a few seconds later the      )
    ( monster is totally gone.                                                    )
    ( Calintz goes to the place, where the monster was standing.                  )
    
    Calintz: What’s this?
    
    |                      Lightning Shard acquired!                              |
    
    Calintz: How’s Reith?
    
    ( Beside Reith is sitting Eonis, who looks really concerned. She, Azel and    )
    ( Chris are watching Maya, who’s trying to heal Reith. After a few tries, she )
    ( shakes her head, that it’s not good...                                      )
    
    Eonis:   She’s not good...
    
    Calintz: Let’s take her to Amabat.
             If we hurry, we might be able to make it.
    
    ( While leaving the Lightning Ruins, the party meets with 2 persons, who are  )
    ( wearing strange cloths and masks.                                           )
    Turibo:  Kill them.
    
    Chris:   What the!?
    
    ( After beating them...)
    Calintz: Are you allies of the Yason?
    
    Turibo:  ...Ha...
    
    Haren:   Who the hell were those guys wearing the
             stupid masks?
    
    Eonis:   When they saw us, one of them said to kill us...
             Do they know us, then?
    
    Calintz: ...Let’s hurry to Amabat. 
             Reith’s safety is all that matters.

    ( Arriving at the Great Temple)
    Justina: She needs treatment.
             Please, this way.
    
    ( Reith is laying on a bed, Calintz and a green ribbon wearing girl are       )
    ( standing next to her bed. The opening of the door can be heard.             )
    Calintz:  Mistress Ladrinne...
    
    ( A priestess, and another woman, who is not wearing the usual priestess      )
    ( dress, entered the room. They go to the bed of Reith.                       )
    Ladrinne: I’ll treat her now. Don’t worry. Please, wait outside.
    
    Calintz:  Of course.
    
    ( Out of the room, in the main part of temple, when Calintz tries to go to    )
    ( northern part of the Temple, he is stopped by Justina.                      )
    Justina: There you are.
    
    Calintz: Is something wrong?
    
    Justina: We have finished healing your companion.
             Please go to her room.
    
    
    ( In front of the room, is Mistress Ladrinne waiting for Calintz.             )
    Calintz:  Mistress Ladrinne...
    
    Ladrinne: She is alright. She sustained no serious injuries.
    
    Calintz:  Really...?
              She had been poisoned and was in poor health.
    
    Ladrinne: That’s strange. I didn’t find any poison in her.
    
    Calintz:  But, she was...
    
    Ladrinne: There are certain people with the ability to heal
              themselves with their own divine power.
              I believe she is one of them
              She has incredible power for an ordinary person.
    
    Calintz:  Huh!? She’s not a priestess?
              But, she was able to heal my wound, 
              so I just assumed she was one...
    
    Ladrinne: So, you found her at Yason-Roven?
              I remember all the priestesses and clerics
              we send. I hand-picked every one of them.
              But, I have never seen this young lady.
              She is definitely not a priestess of Amabat.
    
    Calintz:  I see... Then, who is she...?
    
    Ladrinne: The answer is hidden within her memories.
              We will know once she is treated.
    
    Calintz:  Can it be treated?
    
    Ladrinne: Of course. But, I am not an expert in recovering
              lost memories. I know an excellent cleric for
              the job. We shall talk about this later.
              Please, go see her.
              She is already awake.
    
    Calintz:  Thank you for all that you’ve done.
    
    Ladrinne: You do not seem like yourself, being so worried.
              It seems you have grown attached to her.
    
    Calintz:  No, it’s just that she saved my life. That is all.
    
    Ladrinne: Hmhmhm... I suppose.
    
    ( In the room)
    Reith:   Calintz...
    
    Calintz: Are you alright?
    
    Reith:   Yes.
    
    Eonis:   Glad to hear it. You had me worried for a while.
    
    Calintz: Were the Yason following you? 
             It’s rare for them to come that far north.
    
    Chris:   Hey man, ease up... She’s been through a lot.
    
    Reith:   It’s alright... We were just walking along and
             the Yason took us by surprise. Someone told
             me to run and grabbed my hand, but he... he...
    
    Azel:    It’s alright, you’re safe now.
             We’ve asked Mistress Ladrinne about you and
             she said that you weren’t a priestess.
    
    Reith:   ...R-Really?
    
    Chris:   Don’t sweat it! Your memory didn’t just up
             and ran away. It’s still somewhere inside you.
             You just forgot where you place it.
    
    Haren:   Hmph! It isn’t normal for a human to be chased
             by the Yason. I smell a spy...
    
    Reith:   I... I...
    
    Haren:   When you regain your memory, 
             we’ll see if you’re as innocent as you look...
    
    Calintz: Reith save my life.
             I promised her that I’d protect her.
             We might be able to find out why the Yason
             were after her once she regains her memory.
             Until then, she stays with us.
             If anyone has a problem with that,
             I’ll give up leadership.
    
    Azel:    What are you saying!?
             You can’t quit being captain!
             Besides, I have no problem with that at all.
    
    Eonis:   Neither do I.
    
    Chris:   Me neither.
    
    Haren:   Pssh! Fine! Don’t blame me if this
             xxxx blows up in your faces...
    
    Eonis:   It’s settled then...
             Haren, can you be any more vulgar?
    
    Reith:   I’m sorry... I don’t mean to be such trouble...
    
    Eonis:   No trouble at all...
    
    |                       Reith joined Calintz’s party.                         |
    
    ( Right after leaving the room)
    Eonis: Calintz, make sure you contact Lehas.
           I’m worried about Mirna...
           You should also explain to General Agreian
           what happened.
    
    
    ( Approaching the Communication Sphere)
    Lehas:   You’re here finally!!
    
    Calintz: Did something happen?
    
    Lehas:   What were you doing at Amabat?
    
    Calintz: We were in need of some treatment.
    
    Lehas:   I see...
             I’m sorry to report that Mirna was overrun
             by monsters.
             Our soldiers could not repel the attack and 
             General Agreian is not pleased with the results.
    
    Calintz: Hmm...
    
    Lehas:   He’s in his office on the 2dn floor 
             of the Great Temple.
             Make sure to explain yourself.
    
    Calintz: This is my fault...
    
    Lehas:   Apologies will only get you so far; 
             you must maintain discipline and self-control.
             I’m partially at fault for not stopping you,
             but you have to realize that you cannot continue
             to make rash decisions like that.
    
    Calintz: ...
    
    Lehas:   I know you don’t like to hear complaints,
             especially from someone who isn’t on the 
             frontlines.
             But, you must realize the consequences of such
             actions.
    
    
    ( On the second floor of the Temple, going in on the door to the right...    )
    ( Calintz is standing is front of General Agreian, who really looks furious. )
    Agreian: It’s about time you came here.
             I was informed of your arrival hours ago.
    
    ( He goes to Calintz and slaps him on the face.)
    Agreian: Why did you disobey my orders?
             I had to gather my troops and march all the way to Mirna!
    
    Calintz: I apologize, sir.
    
    Agreian: Did you think this was just a ploy to get you out of the
             Alliance’s way? While you was busy ignoring my orders
             Mirna was being attacked by monsters!
    
    Calintz: I’ll accept whatever punishment you give me. But, my
             comrades are not to blame. It was my decision and they
             simply followed it. Please, do not hold them accountable.
    
    Agreian: I’ll grant your request.
             Take him away.
    
    Soldier: Yessir.
    
    
    ( At the prison of the Temple)
    ( The sound of someone walking can be heard...)
    Cleric:  Who’s there?
    
    ( The sound of a quick slash...)
    Cleric:  Agh...
    
    Calintz: ...?
    
    ( Again, only the sound of steps...)
    Calintz: You...!
    
    ???????: I see you’ve met my friends.
    
    Calintz: Who are you?
    
    ???????: If you think I’m going to tell you, then 
             you’re sorely mistaken.
             Besides, shouldn’t you be preparing to die?
    
    ( The fight is quickly over...)
    Calintz: So, that’s what you’re after...
    
    ???????: Life or death... I’ll let you choose. But now that 
             you know the truth, you’re better off choosing 
             the latter. The truth will only bring you pain.
    
    Calintz: What? The truth...?
    
    Reith:   Calintz!
    
    Azel:    Captain, are you alright?
    
    Haren:   Who’s the rat the snuck in here!?
    
    ( After beating the unknown attacker)
    ???????: Hphm... I’ll have to retreat for now.
    
    Haren:   Hmmm... What’s this?
    
    
    *** Flashback ***
    The houses of a village, light breeze blowing, and chirping of birds...
    
    Hugo: Here’s a token of my friendship.
    
    He holds a knife in his hand.
    
    Mano: They said I had this when I came here.
          I don’t really remember.
    
    Mano is holding a bracelet in his hand.
    
    Hugo: That’s important for you, isn’t it?
          You can give me something else.
    
    Mano: No... You can have it, Hugo. 
          You’re giving me your most treasured possession.
    
    Hugo: Thanks, I’ll take good care of it.
          We’ll always be friends, Mano.
    
    The kids are standing, holding out their treasures in their hands towards
    the other: Hugo, the knife and Mano, the bracelet.
    
    *** End of flashback ***
    
    
    ( Calintz is waking up slowly in the same room, where Reith was treated.      )
    ( He sits up, beside his bed is General Agreian.                              )
    Agreian: Are you awake?
    
    Calintz: General...
    
    Agreian: It’s been a while, Mano.
    
    Calintz: Huh...? You’re not...?
    
    Agreian: Yes, it’s me, Hugo. I haven’t seen this knife in ages.
    
    ( Beside Agreian, who is holding the knife, appears the image of the child    )
    ( Hugo, holding in his hand the knife, the same way, Agreian does.            )
    
    Agreian: I heard from my mother that you defeated the Blast Worms in
             the Mt. Rhyde region. I apologize for jumping to conclusions.
             I shouldn’t have come down so hard on you.
    
    Calintz: No, it’s my fault, General.
    
    Agreian: Will you call me Hugo... for old times sake? When we’re
             behind closed doors, let’s forget about ranks. I still can’t believe
             it... that you survived that incident. I looked for you back then.
    
    Calintz: I had no idea Mistress Ladrinne was your mother.
    
    Agreian: Haha, surprising, isn’t it?
             Regardless, I’m happy we were able to meet again, Mano.
    
    Calintz: I agree.
    
    
    Agreian: I know we were short on soldiers,
             but I can’t believe they breached out defenses...
    
    Calintz: They were after a strange shard.
             Some masked men also attacked us
             at Mt. Rhyde, when we found it.
    
    Agreian: Masked... men...?
    
    Calintz: Yes, their clothes were odd, too...
             We need to find out who they are...
    
    Agreian: There is no need to investigate...
    
    Calintz: Hmm...?
    
    Agreian: You were not the only one who was attacked.
             These are not ordinary thieves; they’re some
             sort of organization with a specific purpose.
             Many our missions have been compromised
             and key people have been assassinated.
             It’s probably them.
    
    Calintz: Then... Are you saying that there’s a spy within
             the Alliance?
    
    Agreian: That’s what I believe. But, we have yet to track
             him down.
             For a while I suspected you...
    
    Calintz: It can’t be helped.
    
    Agreian: But, somewhere in my heart I knew it couldn’t
             be you.
    
    Calintz: Then, if we can find out who it is...
    
    Agreian: Don’t get involved any further. We don’t even
             know who to trust within the Alliance.
             Keep this a secret, you may
             endanger yourself. Several of my subordinates
             have already been killed investigating them.
             So, I’m going to investigate this matter myself.
             In the meantime, I want to give you another mission.
    
    Calintz: Another mission?
    
    Agreian: The shard in your possession in the Lightning
             Shard.
    
    Calintz: Lightning Shard...? 
             You seem to know something about it.
    
    Agreian: That shard is part of the Light of Salvation.
             Find out what you can about the Eight Heroes.
             I don’t know if I...
             ...I planned on collecting all of the shards.
             This is of utmost secrecy;
             not even Mother know this.
             ...I was going to keep it from you, too.
             I didn’t want to involve you in such a 
             dangerous mission.
             You are my closest friend.
    
    Calintz: But, you should realize that I am a soldier,
             first and foremost.
    
    Agreian: I can’t afford to loose you.
             Besides, you now have someone to look after...
    
    Calintz: Hugo! Reith and I...
             It’s not what you think...
    
    
    *** Flashback ***
    Mano is talking with the kid, he found in the forest.
    
    Mano: So that’s... what happened...
    
    ????: But, at least I’m alive.
          ...Even though everyone else is dead.
    
    Mano: I still have my teacher and friends.
    
    ????: Yeah. You’re a lucky guy.
    
    *** End of flashback ***
    
    
    Eonis:   Mistress Ladrinne wants to talk about Reith.
    
    Calintz: I see.
    
    Eonis:   Mistress Ladrinne’s room on the 2nd floor,
             Next to General Agreian’s room.
    
    Calintz: Yeah, I remember.
    
    ( On the second floor, entering the room at the end of the corridor          )
    ( Mistress Ladrinne, and the earlier seen girl, who is wearing a large, green)
    ( ribbon are talking about Reith.                                            )
    
    Justina:  Reith seems to have neutralized the poison
              with her own divine powers.
    
    Ladrinne: Yes, she has great potential. She would be a 
              perfect candidate to succeed me as Great Priestess.
              I would love for her to return to Amabat
              once she recovers her memory.
    
    Justina:  So, you want me to...?
    
    Ladrinne: Yes, please. The time is near for me to find my successor.
    
    Justina:  But, no one can replace you.
    
    ???????:  Mistress Ladrinne. Calintz, the Captain of the Tears of Blood
              is here to see you.
    
    Ladrinne: Show him in.
    
    ( Calintz enters the room, kneels down before Mistress Ladrinne.)
    Ladrinne: You’re awake. How are you feeling?
    
    ( Calintz stands up.)
    Calintz:  Good, thanks to you.
    
    Ladrinne: Calintz, you must take better care of your body.
              You have so many scars... If you’re not more careful
              you could wind up with a serious injury.
    
    Calintz:  It comes with the territory.
    
    Ladrinne: I suppose you want to know why I summoned you here.
              *chuckle* It concerns Reith, of course.
              Once she regains her memory, I’m considering 
              recommending her as a candidate to become 
              the next Great Priestess.
    
    Calintz:  She has that much power?
    
    Ladrinne: If trained properly, she could become far greater than me.
              So for now, I would like Justina to accompany her.
              She will help Reith to recover her memory.
    
    ( The green ribbon wearing girl steps beside Mistress Ladrinne.)
    Justina:  We met earlier. I’m Justina.
    
    Calintz:  I’m Calintz.
    
    Ladrinne: You may go know. Calintz, take care of Reith.
    
    Calintz:  As you wish.
    
    |                    Justina joined Calintz’s party.                          |
    
    ( Stepping out of the “lift”, on the ground floor.)
    Reith:   I can’t believe Mistress Ladrinne made me
             a candidate to become the Great Priestess...
             I have no idea what’s going on.
    
    Justina: Calintz, I will take Reith to Remie in Maracatte 
             tomorrow for her treatment.
    
    Calintz: Alright, I will report this to Lehas.
    
    
    ( Approaching the Communication Sphere)
    Lehas:   What’s wrong?
    
    
    Lehas:   I see... I’m glad that the General is an
             understanding man.
    
    Calintz: After we’re done with Reith, we’ll head back
             to Headquarters.
    
    Lehas:   Alright.
    
    
    ( Meanwhile in Epentar)
    Orha: So, the Tears of Blood interfered...
          As I expected...
    
    Roxy: But, the girl was poisoned.
          She’s probably...
    
    Orha: Incompetent girl... I told you not to harm her.
          Why did you use poison? Does it bother you
          that much to be after a human girl?
    
    Roxy: It was out of my control...
          You know I can’t control my Familiar when
          it’s using its instincts.
    
    Orha: (... The poison should have no effect on her...)
    
    Roxy: Why are you so interested in her?
          What makes her so special?
    
    Orha: Hmph... Was there anyone else other than
          the Tears of Blood who interfered?
    
    Roxy: ...What do you mean?
    
    Orha: There is a spy within our ranks.
          Why do you think the Alliance attempted
          the Forbidden Magic?
          There was someone who was familiar with
          the land.
    
    Roxy: They may have found our by capturing and 
          torturing a Blast Worm.
    
    Orha: No, the Alliance set up the magic circle in an
          area where there weren’t any Blast Worms.
          On top of that, they attacked the exact location
          where our defenses were weak to try and divert
          our attention.
    
    Roxy: Hmmm... You’re right...
          The information is too precise to have come
          from an ordinary soldier.
    
    Orha: There is definitely a spy. Someone is leaking
          information to the Alliance. We need to find
          out who it is.
    
    ( On the World map)
    Carian: The power of the Forbidden Magic is
            devastating. I honestly believe that Epentar
            would’ve been wiped off the face of the planet.
    
    Neikan: ..........
    
    Carian: She is queen for good reason...
            She single-handedly harnessed the power of
            the Magna Carta and stopped the Forbidden
            Magic...
            But, even with all her power, the queen still
            contracted the Rheuma.
    
    Neikan: ..........
    
    Carian: What is it that you want?
    
    Neikan: ..........
    
    Carian: ...So it was true. I will have my men investigate.
            But, it’s probably Orha’s doing. That stupid
            bitch would never disobey Orha’s orders.
    
    
    
    ( Back at the Great Temple, near the area of Mt. Selton, Mistress Ladrinne    )
    ( is casting a spell on two clerics. The magic changes their appearance and   )
    ( they don’t look like humans, but like Yasons.                               )
    
    Ladrinne: Your mission is of utmost importance. Please, be careful.
    
    ( The two “Yasons” bow before her, and leave. The whole scene is watched from )
    ( the distance by a Blast Worm.                                               )
    
    
    Calintz: Can we go to Remie from here?
    
    Azel:    Yes. We’ll have to go through Mt. Selton
             first and it should be just south of there...
    
    Haren:   We better hurry up and get this over with or
             Lehas will be on our asses again. I’m not in the
             mood to hear any more bitching from her.
    
    Chris:   Heheh... Lehas may seem like the ultimate
             ice-queen on the outside, but I betcha she’s a real
             sweetheart once you get to know her.
             If there’s something I know... it’s women...
    
    Justina: Whatever...
             Can we cut the chit-chat and leave already?
    
    Eonis:   I hope you regain your memory.
    
    Reith:   Thank you, everyone.

    [ At the areas of Mt. Selton and Orbonne Woods there are no conversations.]
    
    ( After stepping through the gate of Remie)
    Justina: Dr. Bronx runs an inn and a clinic.
             It is located in the southern part of Remie. 
             Let’s look for it.
    
    ( At the inn)
    Justina: It has been a while, Dr. Bronx.
    
    Bronx:   Welcome. I’ve read your letter...
    
    ( Reith sits on a chair, surrounded by Dr. Bronx, Justina and Calintz)
    Justina: Reith has divine power.
    
    Bronx:   Oh? Is she a priestess of Amabat?
    
    Justina: No, she’s not.
    
    Bronx:   Hmm... Okay then, close your eyes...
             Stay calm, take a deep breath and relax.
             Clear your mind; don’t think anything at all.
             Let yourself be one with all that surrounds you.
             Look inside your heart. What do you see? What do you hear?
    
    ( Reith shuts her eyes, for a few seconds there is silence, but then screams  )
    ( and people shouting can be heard.                                           )
    ???????: We have to stop them! We have to save everyone!
    
    (  Reith opens her eyes and suddenly jumps off the chair.)
    Calintz: Reith...
    
    Bronx:   Calm down... It was just a memory.
    
    Reith:   It was so sad... So horrible... But, I don’t understand.
             I don’t understand what’s happening...
    
    Bronx:   Everything’s okay, now. Don’t worry.
    
    
    Bronx:   I’ve been treating patients with mental illnesses
             for quite awhile, now, but I’ve never seen
             anything like this before.
    
    Calintz: What’s wrong?
    
    Bronx:   The treatment I gave to her was meant to bring 
             out her sub consciousness. That was I can
             examine the Chi that forms her.
             But, I was disturbed to find that Miss Reith
             is missing most of her Chi. Not only that, but their
             structure is fragmented.
    
    Calintz: I don’t really understand...
    
    Bronx:   Everything in this world is made up of Chi,
             including humans. But, the way those Chi are 
             connected varies from person to person.
             I examine a person’s conditions through these
             connections. A person with a heavy heart may
             be lacking an important Chi...
             A person with amnesia has had her 
             Chi tangled up like loose threads. 
             Let me put it to you simply...If a normal person
             is made up of about 100 Chi, Reith has only
             about 10.
    
    Calintz: Is that possible?
    
    Bronx:   Perhaps in a newborn baby or a recently 
             deceased person. Her mental regression may
             have something to do with her missing Chi.
    
    Calintz: Can her condition be healed?
    
    Bronx:   Unfortunately, that is beyond my power...
             However, my older brother Alex in Notia may
             now a way. He was much more divine power 
             than me.
             I will contact him immediately to let him know
             you are coming.
    
    
    ( leaving the room...)
    Eonis:   Is that what the General said?
             The light of Salvation, huh...
    
    Haren:   Shards, sacred treasures, the Magna Carta...
             all myths. It’s all just a bunch of BS if you
             ask me...
    
    Chris:   That’s what most people would say, but there is
             evidence to the contrary. I don’t think we can
             completely disregard it.
    
    Calintz: Let’s see what we can find out about the
             Eight Heroes...
             We may be able to shed some light on this 
             Light of Salvation the General was talking about.
             Does anyone know where to start?
    
    Chris:   If I may and you know I will...
             I know exactly where we should start looking!
    
    Haren:   Here we go again...
    
    Chris:   Come on! 
             This time I know what I’m talking about!
             Have I ever steered us wrong? Don’t answer that...
             At the Entress Desert, there is this place called the
             Pnosen Library. From what I’ve heard, 
             It has books on just about everything.
    
    Azel:    The Pnosen Library...
    
    Calintz: After we take Reith to Notia, we’ll go to this 
             Library. Let’s get some rest in the meantime.
    
    
    *** Flashback ***
    Mano is talking with the kid, he found in the forest.
    
    Mano: Oh, that? That’s what created the barrier about the forest.
    
    ????: Wow, that’s incredible.
          So, all the paths around here look exactly the same?
    
    Mano: Thanks to that, no outsider can get to Fuget.
    
    ????: I bet you do something to protect the sacred treasure too, right?
    
    Mano: Of course we do. We all take turns guarding it.

    |                      Reith left Calintz’s party.                            |
    
    [ Since Reith left the party, the story won’t progress until she’s back.      ]
    [ She’s sitting near the gate, towards Orbonne Woods.                         ]
    Calintz: Reith?
    
    ( Reith looks up on Calintz, he goes to her.)
    Reith:   Uh... Calintz.
    
    Calintz: What are you doing?
    
    Reith:   Nothing. I don’t have anything to do.
    
    Calintz: Is there something bothering you?
    
    Reith:   No... I was just hoping that I’d get my memory back...
             To tell you the truth, I’m tired of being a burden on everyone.
             I wanna help you, like Azel and Eonis do...
             If I could get my memory back, then I might be more useful...
             At least that’s what I was thinking...
    
    
    *** Flashback ***
    Mano is sitting next to his teacher.
    
    Woman: I can’t believe you kept practicing with those blisters.
           Being reckless won’t make you stronger.
    
    Mano:  But... I wanna be like Hugo.
           I’m tired of not being good enough.
    
    Woman: Mano...
    
    *** End of flashback ***
    
    
    ( Calintz sits down, next to Reith.)
    Calintz: Rushing things will only make things worse.
             Besides, feeling discouraged isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
             That way, once you’ve grown stronger you’ll be
             more sympathetic towards others who lost hope.
    
    Reith:   Calintz... I never thought of it that way.
    
    Calintz: Um, well... My teacher taught me that...
    
    Reith:   Your teacher must have been a wonderful person.
    
    ( From not far away, Azel and Eonis are watching them.)
    Azel:    The two of them really make a pair, huh?
    
    Eonis:   Yes. Thank goodness. I was worried
             that Calintz would never settle down.

    Reith:   Okay, Calintz.
    
    ( at the inn)
    Calintz: Reith, why don’t you rest for today?
    
    Reith:   Okay, Calintz. I’ll see you tomorrow.

    ( the next day...)
    Haren:   Isn’t this Pnosen Library cursed or something?
             Besides, how the hell are we crossing the
             Entress Desert? Cuz, I ain’t walkin’
    
    Chris:   How about if we fly...? My new model,
             the “Spruce Chris 23” is ready to...
    
    Haren:   Uh... no...
    
    Chris:   Why do you always gotta pick on me...?
    
    Eonis:   If we’re going to fly, how about Notia’s 
             Azure Wings?
    
    Azel:    That’s definitely a lot safer.
    
    Calintz: Then, let’s head for Notia.
    
    Eonis:   What about Reith?
    
    Calintz: I don’t want to involve her in the search for the
             Light of Salvation. But, Alex’s clinic is at Notia.
             I’ll talk to her about what we’re going to do.
    
    Chris:   Can’t leave her alone, eh? 
             Yep, yep, I know how it is.
             In the fires of war, blossoming new love...
             How romantic...
    
    Calintz: Let’s go!
    
    Chris:   Hey!
    
    ( In the room of the inn)
    Justina: I just finished speaking with Dr. Bronx and
             he manages to get a hold of Dr. Alex.
             I’m going to accompany Reith to Notia to have 
             her treated.
    
    Eonis:   That’s wonderful! We have to go to Notia, too.
    
    Reith:   So... Can we go together?
    
    Haren:   Only as far as Notia. After that, we’re gone.
    
    Reith:   I... I see...
    
    Azel:    Geez, Haren... You don’t have to se so cold...
             Reith, mercenaries follow their own path.
             That’s all. You shouldn’t worry about it.
    
    Reith:   It’s alright... I wouldn’t be of any use to them.
    
    Chris:   What are you saying!?
             Being in the presence of a beautiful young lady
             brings life to our desolate souls...
    
    Calintz: We’re leaving...
    
    Chris:   Hey, wait up!
    
    ( Immediately after leaving the room)
    
    |                         Agreian is calling you.                             |
    
    ( At the communication sphere)
    Agreian: We have a situation.
             Several Yason were spotted close to Remie.
    
    Calintz: Spies?
    
    Agreian: Probably. I want you to deal with them before
             anything happens.
    
    Calintz: Am I to capture them alive?
    
    Agreian: They are probably trying to take Alliance secrets
             back with them. We can’t afford to let them
             escape to Yason-Roven like last time.
    
    Calintz: I understand. We’ll handle this.
    
    
    Calintz: I should go back to the inn and tell Reith that
             I need to do this first.
    
    ( Back at the inn)
    Calintz: I’ve received urgent orders. You two wait here.
             We won’t be gone long.
    
    Reith:   Is everything okay? Calintz...
             What kind of mission is it?
    
    Calintz: ...Don’t worry. It’s nothing serious.
             Just wait here ‘til we get back.
    
    Reith:   Then why won’t you tell me?
             It’s something dangerous, isn’t it?
    
    Calintz: It’s not anything to worry about.
             Just concentrate to getting your memory back.
    
    Reith:   Calintz...
    
    Justina: Reith, it doesn’t involve is.
             We should do as Calintz says and wait here.
    
    Reith:   He’s hiding something. I know it.
    
    ( Right after Calintz leaves Remie toward Orbonne Woods, Justina goes to the  )
    ( Communication Sphere.                                                       )
    Justina:  Mistress Ladrinne, what’s wrong?
    
    Ladrinne: Did you hear of any Yason sightings around 
              Remie?
    
    Justina:  Huh? There couldn’t possibly be any Yason all
              the way up here...
    
    Ladrinne: ...I sent spies to Yason-Roven.
    
    Justina:  Ah... Then those Yason are clerics.
    
    Ladrinne: You are correct. But, the Alliance will not be able
              to tell the difference. I am worried there may be
              unnecessary battles...
    
    Justina:  No...
    
    Ladrinne: What’s wrong?
    
    Justina:  The Tears of Blood just left on an urgent mission. Could it be...?
    
    Ladrinne: ...I see. I have cast an illusion spell on
              them so that they will look like Yason.
              They cannot undo the spell on their own.
    
    Justine:  The Alliance wouldn’t believe them no matter 
              what they say.
              I will go after the Tears of Blood immediately.
              I hope I make it in time...
    
    ( Arriving back at the inn, Justina runs in the room)
    Justina:  Reith... Uh, no...!
    
    ( Meanwhile, at Orbonne Woods, Calintz’s party meets with the two Yason.      )
    Calintz: Hold it right there!
    
    ( He pulls out his sword and holds it towards the Yason.)
    
    Yason 1: The Tears of Blood!
    
    Haren:   Hmm, so you’ve heard of us?
    
    Yason 2: Please wait! We’re not Yason!
    
    Haren:   Hey, if you’re gonna lie, at least
             think of something better than that.
    
    Yason 2: I’m telling the truth!
    
    Yason 1: Forget it! They won’t believe us no matter what we say.
             Besides, this mission is supposed to be a secret.
    
    Haren:   Enough chit-chat!
    
    ( After the rather easy fight with the Yasons...)
    Yason 2: Please, listen... We’re not Yason... I swear...
    
    ( Calintz hold his sword towards them.)
    Calintz: This sword is pointed right at your throat.
             Are you still going to lie to me?
    
    Reith:   Stop it, Calintz!
    
    ( Suddenly Reith appears and stands between Calintz and the Yasons.)
    Calintz: Reith!? What are you doing here!?
    
    Reith:   I... I was worried about you.
    
    Calintz: Step aside.
    
    Reith:   What? Why are you attacking helpless, innocent people?
    
    Calintz: Stay outta this. We have orders to kill these Yason.
    
    Reith:   But, they aren’t even Yason. Look closely, Calintz.
             What’s wrong with you?
    
    Calintz: What wrong with ME? Are you crazy?
             You think they’re humans!?
             Move.
    
    Reith:   No...
    
    Calintz: Are you deaf? I said move!
    
    Reith:   No!
    
    Azel:    Reith, these were the General’s orders. 
             If we disobey him, the Captain will be help responsible.
             So, I’m asking you, please get out of the way.
    
    Reith:   What’s wrong with you all? They’re not Yason.
             They’re humans! Don’t you get it!?
    
    ( Calintz hold his sword toward Reith.) 
    Calintz: This is not about ma personal feelings.
             If you won’t move, then I’ll...
    
    ( He lifts up the sword above his head, ready to strike down. Shuts his eyes, )
    ( and strikes down at Reith, who pulls down her head. A clashing sound can    )
    ( be heard, then Calintz opens his eyes and sees, that his strike was averted )
    ( Justina's weapon, who stands in front of Reith.  
    Justina: Would you really have killed her?
    
    ( Calintz just stares and suddenly he realizes, that behind Reith, there are  )
    ( 2 human clerics standing.                                                   )
    
    Justina: These are spies Mistress Ladrinne sent to 
             Yason-Roven. You already know that the 
             Four Warriors have spies all over Efferia, right?
             It’s not quite public knowledge, but Amabat has 
             been dispatching spies for quite some time.
             This war isn’t about what’s right or wrong,
             after all.
    
    Calintz: General Agreian wasn’t aware of this?
    
    Justina: That’s right. Even though he is Mistress
             Ladrinne’s son, he only represents the Alliance
             not Amabat.
             But, we didn’t imagine anything like this
             happening.
    
    Chris:   This is so not right... How were we supposed
             to know that they were anything but Yason?
    
    Justina: Reith’s divine power is extraordinary.
             She was the one that broke the illusion.
             If Reith wasn’t here, we cloud have had a major
             incident on our hands.
             I will report this to Mistress Ladrinne and 
             I suggest you do the same with General Agreian.
             Remember. No one is at fault here.
    
    |                  Reith, Justina left Calintz’s party.                       |
    
    ( Right after arriving back at Remie)
    
    |                         Agreian is calling you.                             |
    
    ( At the communication sphere)
    Calintz: I called off the mission.
    
    Agreian: You let them escape?
    
    Calintz: No, thanks to Reith...
    
    Agreian: Reith?
             Calintz, don’t let you emotions get in the way...
             Even is she is now a member of the Tears of
             Blood, I don’t think it is wise to involve her in
             such important matters.
    
    Calintz: Listen to me! If it wasn’t for her,
             I would have been responsible for the deaths 
             of innocent people.
    
    Agreian: Clerics?
    
    Calintz: That’s right. They were Amabat clerics disguised
             as Yason, sent to spy on them.
    
    Agreian: Amabat...? Why would they...?
    
    Calintz: It shouldn’t be such a surprise as the Alliance 
             is doing similar things. Amabat is just being
             more discreet about it.
    
    Agreian: I’m sorry, Calintz. I was mistaken.
    
    Calintz: If it wasn’t for Reith, I would have the blood
             of innocents on my hands. I don’t think I could 
             live with that...
    
    Agreian: I see...
    
    Eonis:   General, if you’ll excuse us, we’ll be heading 
             to Notia now.
    
    
    ( When the party tries to leave towards the road which lead to Notia...)
    |                          Lehas is calling you.                              |
    
    ( At the communication sphere)
    Lehas:   Haran, a letter came in for you.
    
    Haren:   A letter? For me?
    
    Lehas:   But... Well...
             The sender is...
    
    Haren:   What about the sender?
    
    Lehas:   It’s Felicia.
    
    Haren:   What!?
    
    
    | If this letter finds you safely, it means that we’re                        |
    | still as close as we were before. You should receive                        |

    | You’re at Garute... I’m at Maracatte...                                     |

    | But maybe we’re together when this letter                                   |
    | arrives. And maybe I’ll read this letter and                                |
    | feel embarrassed.                                                           |

    | You never liked to work, so I know you won’t                                |
    | look for your present before I get there.                                   |

    | You’re always late, but I’ll be upset if you come                           |
    | late this time.                                                             |
    
    Lehas:   I remember now...
             Felicia said she sent a letter to Haren
             two years from then. I thought she was joking...
             I didn’t think it’d really arrive.
    
    Haren:   Haha... Ironic, huh?
             She never suspected that in a couple of months after 
             she sent this letter that she’s be dead.
    
    Lehas:   .........
    
    Calintz: Erestine... It’s close to the Doren Ruins.
             ...Let’s stop by.
    
    Haren:   And do what? Look for that present? 
             That’s a waste of time.
    
    Lehas:   Haren, listen to me.
             It’s a plea from a person, who’s no longer here.
             And... her final request.
             Why don’t you just do it?
    
    Haren:   ..........
    
    Lehas:   Good luck.

    ( After seeing the man, standing at the forest entrance...)
    Haren:   Hey... You guys!
    
    Azel:    Do you know them Haren?
    
    Haren:   Yeah. They’re from Haja Dojo.
             They use the Ranka Shoretsu Style.
    
    Eonis:   The Ranka Shoretsu Style opposes you
             Gekisho Shinzan style, right?
    
    Haren:   Yeah... I’ve always felt they needed a good
             ass-kicking. I’m surprised they have a dojo
             here...
    
    Calintz: Dojos have been opening up all over lately.
             And each one seems to teach a different style.
    
    Eonis:   Yes, teaching combat skills has become quite
             a lucrative business.
    
    Azel:    Oh yeah? So... If you train at a dojo, you can learn a style?
    
    Eonis:   That’s right? There are four skill lever for each
             style. You will start at the lowest level and must
             defeat the trainer to advance to the nest level.
             When you have defeated the trainer at the highest 
             level, you will be awarded a scroll acknowledging 
             your mastery of that style.
    
    Chris:   But, if you’re defeated... you loose your money.
    
    Haren:   Hmm... I might as well give it a try.
             After defeating these Haja Dojo guys,
             I’ll get myself a scroll!
    
    Chris:   ...Just try not to loose and make a fool of yourself.

             to Remie form Amabat and she ended up in
             Erestine ‘cause she got lost.
             She was always bad with directions.

             I didn’t need to come here to remember that.

    Eonis:   I’m sure you will be fine, but be careful.
             Take care of Reith.
    
    Justina: There is no need to worry.
             It is my duty to protect Reith.

    Reith:   What is it?
    
    Chris:   It’s a flare. Whenever you’re in danger, aim it
             towards the sky and shoot it. Then we’ll come
             save you.

    ( On the world map)
    Roxy: Why do you search for her so desperately?
          I’d like a reasonable explanation.
    
    Orha: As long as I don’t bring her here, there is nothing
          to talk about. This is a top secret mission from 
          our leaders...
    
    Roxy: What about Her Majesty?
          Does she know of this?
    
    Orha: She shall never know of this. If this information
          Were to reach her... I might need to kill you.
    
    Roxy: Are you serious?
    
    Orha: This is for the sake of all Yason. I cannot rely on
          Carian or Azhadi. It’s an important mission, and
          I can only rely on you.
          Are you still not satisfied with my explanation.
    
    Roxy: It will suffice...
    
    ( Back at Notia, before the Office of the Azure Wings)
    
    Pilot:   Welcome. Where are you headed?
    
    Calintz: The Pnosen Library in the Entress Desert.
    
    Pilot:   The Entress Desert? Excuse me, are you joking, 
             right? That is a dangerous place.
    
    Calintz: Regardless, we still need to go there.
    
    Pilot:   If you insist... But, it’s definitely  going to cost
             you. Somewhere in the neighborhood of about 
             10.000 Sid...
    
    Azel:    What? Why so expensive?
    
    Pilot:   It’s a long way to the Entress Desert.
             Not to mention the danger involved.
    
    Haren:   This is frickenin’ highway robbery!?
             What kind of business are you running here!?
    
    Pilot:   ...
    
    Chris:   Hehe... You’ll have to excuse my burly friend
             here. He’s just sore that he gambled all his
             money away yesterday...
    
    Would you like to use the “Azure Wings”?
    - We’ll pay.
    ( In case of choosing this option, skip down to “We need time to prepare...”. )
    
    - No thanks.
    Eonis:   I knew it was expensive, but didn’t expect it 
             to be that much.
    
    Haren:   Damn! I think we would have been better of riding in
             your great-whatever-you-call-it.
    
    Chris:   Ohh, you finally recognize my skills.
    
    Calintz: I wonder if there’s any other way to use the
             Azure Wings.
    
    ( at the inn)
    Haren:   I happened to overhear that pilot. He’s looking
             for something called an “Air Gill”.
    
    Eonis:   I just saw a child carrying what looked like
             fish gills.
    
    ( After getting the Air Gills, back at the building of the Azure Wings)
    Pilot:   Were you able to collect the fee?
    
    Calintz: I have this ”Air Gills”. I was wandering if you
             can give me a deal with this.
    
    Pilot:   Wow, this is rare! Yes, this will do.
             We need time to prepare, so we will be leaving
             tomorrow.
    
    
    *** Flashback ***
    The injured kid is lying in the forest, with Mano standing beside him.
    
    ????: Ugh... Ughhh...
    
    Mano: Are you alright?
    
    ????: I need... some of that... medicine... Ugh, it hurts...
    
    Mano: Okay. Don’t worry.
          But, I’ll have to go to get it.
          Just hang on until I get back.
    
    Mano runs away, leaving the injured alone. Still lying on the ground, only his
    face can be seen, while he’s giving off a wicked smile.
    
    *** End of flashback ***
    
    
    ( On the world map, the airship goes from Notia to the Entress Desert, where...)
    Pilot:   The sandstorm is worse that what I anticipated.
             It’s too dangerous.
    
    Haren:   What?
    
    Pilot:   It’s impossible with this ship.
             We can still turn back... Ahhhh!!!

    Haren:   Damn! Why are we always so unlucky!?
    
    Chris:   C’mon man, where’s your sense of adventure?
    
    Azel:    Phew, it’s so hot. There is no way we can walk 
             to the library from here.
    
    Calintz: We need to get moving. We won’t last long out
             here without water.
    
    Chris:   I so knew this was gonna happen! We’re going 
             to need some to get through the sandstorm...
    
    Haren:   Huh? What are you babbling about?
    
    Chris:   Yeah, it’s our only hope. We have no time
             to waste... Hey guys, we need to go to Efor.
             There’s one way to get to the Pnosen Library.
    
    
    ( At the same time the party finally leaves the Entress Desert, in Amabat...)
    Ladrinne: So, you were surprised by my actions?
    
    Agreian:  Sending secret agents to infiltrate the Yason...
              My division could have handled the matter.
              If your involvement is discovered, Amabat will be dishonored.
    
    Ladrinne: If you think Amabat is only concerned 
              with keeping its hands clean, you are mistaken.
              We have sacrificed much for the sake of this world.
    
    Agreian:  You think that Amabat is that powerful?
    
    Ladrinne: No. In fact the Holy Order of Eryu
              intends to extend its authority within the Alliance.
    
    Agreian:  Mother, I know what you’re getting at.
              You believe that Amabat’s primary concern
              is the peace of Efferia.
    
    Ladrinne: Precisely. For that I’m willing to take any risk.
    
    Agreian:  But... 
              At least you could have informed me of your plan.
    
    Ladrinne: I didn’t think it was necessary.
              Besides, as a general for the Alliance,
              you have your own duties to attend to.

    ( they can enter.                                                             )

    Chris:   My house.

    Chris:   Hey pops, I’m home!
    
    ( In the house, a man is sleeping leaning on the table.)
    Rostin:  Nhnnnggg... Nnngg...
    
    Chris:   So predictable.
             He hasn’t changed a bit.
    
    ( Chris walks to the table and altering his voice, starts to speak...)
    Chris:   Oh, my dear Rostin, you’re so wonderful!
             Darling, will you stay with me tonight?
    
    Rostin:  Oh, Angela!! I’ll never let you go.
             Gimme a kiss... Huh!? What?
    
    Chris:   Are you awake now? 
             It’s me, your son.
    
    Rostin:  What’d you go and wake me up for?
             I was having the best dream.
             Angela finally confessed her feelings to me...
    
    Chris:   Hmph. Still chasing skirts at your age?
             You never learn, do ya? ...Dirty old man.
    
    Rostin:  Those days are long gone.
             I gave that up when your brother died.
    
    Chris:   Mother must be SO grateful.
             Thanks to you and your cheatin’ ways,
             she couldn’t even die in peace.
    
    Rostin:  You’re wrong.
             It was because of her hatred for the Yason.
    
    
    
    Chris:   Hey, I got a favor to ask.
    
    Rostin:  A favor? You show up out of nowhere after all
             these years and that’s all you have to say...
    
    Chris:   Yeah, I was just being considerate 
             of your privacy.
             I thought you’d be living happily with a woman
             or something...
    
    Rostin:  Hmph. So what is it?
    
    Chris:   We need an airship.
    
    Rostin:  What!?
    
    Chris:   A durable one that can fly through a sandstorm.
    
    Rostin:  I don’t have one. Now get out.
    
    Chris:   Don’t tell me you can’t build one. You used to
             be so passionate about it. Whey you built it with
             Eston...
    
    Rostin:  Damn you, shut up! 
             Don’t talk about you brother!
    
    Chris:   If Eston ever found out that you quit building 
             ships it would break his hearts. You’re just a
             drunk living in the past...
    
    Rostin:  What would you know!? You had no interest in 
             airships. And you come back asking me to
             build one?
    
    Chris:   Pop... You didn’t need me. You already had
             a son who was everything you wanted.
             I, on the other hand, couldn’t do anything right.
             He was always your favorite.
    
    Rostin:  ...Are you trying to say it was my fault?
    
    Chris:   That’s not it. I tried to do my best with what
             you taught me. But... eventually you stopped 
             teaching me...
             you were busy building airships with Eston. 
    
    Rostin:  ...That’s enough. Get some rest and we’ll talk
             alone tomorrow.
    
    
    
    Chris:   Sorry about this. Every time I talk to my father, 
             it always turns out like this.
    
    Eonis:   Your father also builds airships.
             I guess it runs in the family, hmm?
    
    Chris:   Too bad I’ve got no talent... You guys already 
             know that. My brother was different. He was
             a genius. No matter how hard I tried, I could
             never get out of his shadow... Eventually,
             my dad only taught Eston. It was then 
             when I started making bows.
    
    Azel:    But, you can build airships and if we can get 
             help from your brother...
    
    Chris:   He’s dead...
    
    Azel:    I’m sorry, I didn’t know...
    
    Chris:   It’s cool... It’s in the past anyways.
             My brother said he was gonna build and airship
             that could fly through the sandstorm. He started
             building it with my dad.
             I didn’t even bother to help. I guess I was jealous
             of my brother as he worked next to my dad.
             My brother never gave up no matter how many
             times he failed. They finally finished it... 
             ...and they named it “Rusty 27”.
             But, on it’s first flight, my brother died flying it...
             To make it accelerate faster, they made the body
             too light and it ended up falling apart.
             They were like little kids. I was so jealous.
             I hoped they would fail... Then, it really happened...
    
    ( going back in the house)
    Chris:   What? You said you’re gonna build “Rusty 28”
             and you’ve got nothing!
    
    Rostin:  Oh, it’s ready. I just need... 10 Omarev Feathers...
    
    Chris:   Oh, is that all? No problem... I’ll just march
             down to the store and pick some up.
             Hey, while I’m there I’ll see if I can get 
             the Yason to surrender too... Do you
             know how hard is it to capture those things?
    
    Rostin:  That is exactly why you’ve practiced with
             crossbows – for situation like these.
             As long as we have those feathers, the airship
             will be able to fly fast despite its heavy weight.
             I can’t... I won’t let the “Rusty 28” fail.
    
    Chris:   Alright...
             You heard him. Let’s go.
    
    
    ( At the same time, Calintz, after gathering the 10 Omarev Feathers, leaves   )
    ( the Entress Desert, in Epentar...                                           )
    
    Yason: Your Majesty, Lord Orha is here to see you.
    
    Amila: Let him in.
    
    Orha:  Your Majesty, you are as beautiful as always.
    
    Amila: ...Can we skip the formalities when we’re alone?
    
    Orha:  Your Majesty, I cannot let my guard down even
           for a moment. There are many people watching you.
           You must realize that there is nowhere you are truly safe.
           However, I came to inform you that the leaders 
           of the three tribes will be arriving today. There’s 
           an important matter they wish to discuss with you.
    
    Amila: Very well...
    
    
    ( Back in Efor, at Chris’s house)
    Rostin:   Hey, boy! Take care of it, you hear me?
    
    Chris:    Ok, ok, I got it! Sheesh... nag, nag, nag...
    
    Rostin:   If you know what to do, then do it right.
              Don’t make me worry...
    
    Eonis:    How exciting...
    
    Haren:    For some reason, I don’t know if the exciting is the 
              right word...
    
    Eonis:    ...........
    
    
    ( In the garden, next to Chris’s house, Rostin, Haren, Maya, Calintz, Azel    )
    ( and Chris are standing, watching the finished “Rusty 28”.                   )
    
    Rostin:  Go ahead... Try it out.
    
    Chris:   Why don’t you try, Dad?
    
    Rostin:  What’ll I do if it crashes?
    
    Chris:   You’re just making excuses.
    
    Rostin:  Is that how you treat your ol’ man?
             Quit complaining and climb aboard.
             Trust me, for once. It’s perfectly safe.
    
    Chris:   ...Then, why don’t your try it?
             Forget it! Anyone wanna come along for a ride?
    
    Haren:   You want to risk our necks, too?
    
    Calintz: I’ll join you.
    
    Azel:    Captain! Are you crazy!?
    
    Chris:   ...Thanks a lot, Azel.
    
    Eonis:   I’ll come too. I have confidence it its design.
    
    Azel:    Well, if the Captain’s going, then so am I.
    
    Haren:   Hey, wait...
             I can’t be the only one who stays behind.
    
    ( On the world map)
    Chris:   Whoa! It actually works!
    
    Azel:    Congratulations. It’s a success!
    
    Haren:   I think I just lost 10 years of my life.
    
    Chris:   Hey, hey that’s not nice.

    Haren:   They don’t wanna let us through or somethin’?
    
    Chris:   It could be fun...
    
    Haren:   Man, it’s too hot for this. What happens if
             we get lost.
    
    Calintz: Let’s try to get through it as fast as we can.
    
    
    ( As the party goes near the entrance of the Labyrinth)
    Azel:    Captain... What’s this...?
    
    Calintz: It’s a maze... Nothing to worry about.
    
    Chris:   Hold on second... You can’t just go in there
             and expect to come tight out. That’s why my
             ingenious invention will come in handy!
             It’s called “The Amazing Mazenator”!
    
    Azel:    ...........
    
    Eonis:   *sigh*
    
    Maya:    *wince*
    
    Chris:   Hey! You haven’t even seen it yet! Wow, even
             Maya’s giving me that look... Well, you’ll change
             your minds when you hear what it does.
             Get this – it gives you a 360 degrees view!
    
    Haren:   Face it, Chris – your inventions suck!
    
    Chris:   Hey! Don’t interrupt!
    
    Haren:   Hmph.
    
    Chris:   Now, listen up. I’m only gonna say this one.
             The controls are simple. All your have to do to
             change the view is move the right analog stick,
             and the camera will rotate around us.
    
    Eonis:   Wow, this thing actually works.
             In fact, it might be quite useful.
    
    Calintz: Finally, something we can use.
    
    Chris:   See, I told – Hey! That wasn’t a compliment!
    
    Calintz: C’mon, everyone! Let’s fly through here!
    
    Chris:   Hey, wait up... Aren’t you gonna us my 
             new invention!?

    Azel:    Wow, so this is the Pnosen Library. Amazing.
    
    ( An old man appears, walking slowly, as he’s came to greet the party.        )
    ????:    Visitors?
             I’m surprised you came all this way.
             My name is Amon. I’m the head librarian here.
    
    Calintz: Nice to meet you. 
             I’m Calintz. I lead a band of mercenaries.
    
    Amon:    Oooh, a mercenary.
             You must be strong. 
             Maybe you won’t end up as a corpse.
    
    Chris:   A corpse? I don’t like the sound of that.
             What exactly do you mean?
    
    Amon:    All of the books in this library are protected
             by magic. When you open one, powerful ghosts
             or monsters will appear.
             Unless you can defeat these protectors,
             you won’t be able to read a single page.
    
    Azel:    Wow, so the rumors are true.
    
    Amon:    Recently, it’s been quiet around here. But,
             a few years ago, there was some treasure hunters
             and curious travelers who paid a visit.
             They didn’t heed my warning, though.
             Stupid fools, making more work for an old man
             like me. It was a real hassle cleaning this place up.
    
    Azel:    Ah... aha... Don’t worry.
             You won’t have that problem with us.
    
    Amon:    Heh. I’m not concerned whether you live or die.
             It’s just that these old joints don’t bend like
             they used to.

    |The Absence of Religion – “While many theories                               |
    |exist, there is no definitive explanation for the                            |
    |absence of religion in Efferia. Although place                               |

    |“...Combat is at the heart of war, and it is an                              |
    |act of cruelty and brutality. This demonstrates that                         |

    |their homes and families, the Slashing Squad of                              |
    |Eternal Oath participated in the early stages of                             |

    |Members carried a unique, short sword with the                               |
    |sigil of a leaf engraved on the hilt.                                        |
    |The swords were so popular that young boys could                             |

    |“Surprisingly, all the members of the Slashing                               |
    |Squad were merchants who traded between the                                  |
    |two races. In times of peace, they were                                      |
    |businessmen who traveled from continent to                                   |
    |continent selling their wares and reaping profits.                           |
    |In times of war, however, they became soldiers who                           |
    |courageously entered into battle fighting their                              |

    |On the way back to Efferia, we discovered their                              |

    |“Behru inadvertently used the Earth Shard                                    |
    |as he was being chased by the Yason.                                         |
    |The shard created a tremendous earthquake                                    |
    |that swallowed the entire band of soldiers.                                  |

    |“We were afraid that someone would try                                       |
    |to take advantage of the power, so we decided to                             |
    |keep it a secret. When we returned to Efferia,                               |
    |we were welcomed as heroes.                                                  |
    |That’s how we became known as The Eight                                      |
    |Heroes. Attack by the Yason dwindled, and                                    |
    |there was peace for a time. But, eight years later,                          |
    |an unfortunate event reignited the animosity.”                               |

    |“Behru, Who’s half Yason, was assassinated                                   |
    |for betraying his homeland, and the Earth Shard                              |
    |was stolen. Shortly before that, he mentioned                                |
    |a nightmare he’d had in which he dreamt that the                             |
    |Earth Shard wanted to return to The Tree of Light.                           |

    |“If the Light if Salvation is returned to the Yason,                         |
    |humanity is destined to fall. We must guard                                  |
    |then remaining seven shards with our lives...                                |
    |They must never be allowed to fall                                           |
    |into the Yason’s hands.”                                                     |
    
    
    Calintz: The shards are much more powerful
             than I expected. I understand now why 
             the General is so interested in obtaining them.
    
    Eonis:   Supposedly when all the shards are reunited,
             one can unleash the Magna Carta...
             I wonder if the legend is true.
    
    Haren:   Gimme a break. If it was true, then how come no
             one’s doing anything about it? I haven’t heard any 
             rumor about the Yason looking for the shards.
    
    Calintz: Maybe Amila and The Four Warriors 
             are keeping it a secret.
    
    Chris:   That would make sense, if it’s as powerful
             as the book says. Remember that thing
             she summoned at Mt. Rhyde? 
             I hoper we don’t have to face 
             any more of ’em.
    
    Haren:   But can you imagine...? With the Magna Carta,
             taking out the Yason would be a breeze!
             I can’t wait to get my hand on it!
    
    Chris:   That’s not a bad idea. 
             It’s be the fastest way to end the war.
    
    Azel:    I agree. 
             The Yason destroyed my village.
             I can’t let them do something like that again.
    
    Eonis:   I’m anxious to end the war, too...
             So, are we all in agreement.
    
    Calintz: Maya, how ‘bout you?
             Are you coming with us?
    
    Chris:   It’s gonna be dangerous.
             If it were up to me, Maya, I’d make you
             stay behind.
    
    Haren:   Yeah, yeah.
    
    ( Maya slowly nods with her head.)
    Calintz: alright, let’s get back to Headquarters.
    
    
    ( At the same time the party leaves the Library, in Epentar...)
    Orha:         So... That’s the reason for the war?
    
    Chief Shinen: It may come as a surprise, but unfortunately we
                  have no other choice.
                  The search has already begun, but it will be
                  difficult to find the Light of Salvation of Efferia.
                  We have relatively little information.
    
    Orha:         That’s why you need the Blast Worm.
    
    Chief Shinen: I’m afraid it’s absolutely necessary.
                  It’s the only way to save our race.
    
    Amila:        With the Light of Salvation, the Yason
                  can be saved, right?
                  We won’t be helpless against Rheuma anymore.
    
    Chief Shinen: Yes, Your Majesty.
    
    ( Amila is walking in the garden, near a pavilion, deep in her thoughts...    )
    Amila: The Light of Salvation...
    
    (...when she realizes, that there is a Phoenix flying near her.               )
    Amila: Did you come to play with me?
    
    ( Amila starts to walk towards the Phoenix, but as if it’s afraid of Amila,   )
    ( flies backwards, and flies away from her.                                   )
    Amila: I see... Even you won’t accept someone like me.
    
    
    ( back in Efor, at Chris’s house)
    Chris:  You can give it to us. You won’t use it anyways!
    
    Rostin: What are you saying!? The Rusty 28 is the only 
            ship that can compete against Azure Wings.
    
    Chris:  Ahh... So you finally feel like working?
    
    Rostin: Of course. Compared to the Azure Wings,
            everyone is going to love my Rusty.
    
    Chris:  Hey, hey... Your Rusty? Come on, give credit
            where credit is due, Pops...
    
    |                         Agreian is calling you.                             |
    
    ( Approaching the Communication Sphere)
    Calintz: I did some research on the Light of Salvation.
    
    Agreian: Tell me what you know...
    
    Calintz: As you said, our goal it to end the war...
    
    Agreian: Yes...
    
    Calintz: But, is that your only purpose for the 
             Light of Salvation?
    
    Agreian: Why do you ask?
    
    Calintz: The Hugo I know wouldn’t show it, but he was 
             a very competitive person. He would never run
             away from a fight.
    
    Agreian: You know me too well... I plan on activating 
             the Magna Carta and ending the war with 
             the Yason.
    
    Calintz: You’re going to make the legend a reality?
    
    Agreian: There is conclusive proof that the Magna Carta 
             is real. We must succeed. I can’t let the war
             continue any longer.
             We must defeat them and make them surrender.
             Mother must never know of this... She would
             not approve of this action.
    
    Calintz: I see...
    
    Agreian: You should be careful.
             Do not tell Lehas about the Light of Salvation.
    
    Calintz: I understand.
    
    Agreian: Calintz... I know you’ve been searching for a 
             Yason with a Vindi that looks like a butterfly
             on his left arm...
    
    Calintz: How do you know...?
    
    Agreian: I know you will claim vengeance for your
             master’s death.
    
    
    
    Calintz: Let’s go back to Headquarters.
    
    Haren:   You weren’t planning on walking there, were ya?
             The war will be over by the time we get back!
    
    Chris:   No problem; leave it to me! I’ll just ask Dad
             for a lift on Rusty 28! 
    
    Calintz: Alright, let’s head over to your place, then.
    
    ( at Chris’s house)
    Rostin: This is the last time I’m doin’ this for free.
            Next time, I’m chargin’ you!
    
    Chris:  Don’t be so stingy, Dad. You know you
            love flying. 
    
    Rostin: Ungrateful kid. Anyways, we’re ready
            for take-off!
    
    ( On the world map)
    Rostin: Let’s go, Rusty!

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Azel:    Why are we going to Headquarters, Captain?
    
    Calintz: We should check in with Lehas.
             But, don’t say anything about 
             the Light of Salvation. The General
             asked that we keep our mission quiet.
    
    Chris:   Are you sure that’s a good idea? You know
             how she is... I don’t think I can stand that
             icy stare again... Man, it gives me the chills!
    
    Azel:    Well, it’s an important mission, so we don’t 
             have much choice.
    
    Haren:   I’m sure we’ll find her in the conference room,
             like always. Let’s go and get this over with.
    
    
    ( In the Conference Room)
    Lehas:   Your mission to take Reith for her treatment
             took longer than I had planned...
             Also, while you were away a payment was
             Sent from the General. But, what was it for?
             I don't remember the mission.
    
    Calintz: ...From now on, do not question any payment
             from the General.
    
    Lehas:   Why? What’s going on?
    
    Chris:   Actually, we’re on a very important secret
             mission. It’s so dangerous in fact, we didn’t 
             want to involve you.
    
    Lehas:   Is it something you can’t tell me? I see...
             Those who can’t fight aren’t considered
             a real part of the Tears of Blood.
    
    Chris:   It’s not anything like that... It’s just...
    
    Eonis:   I’m sorry, Lehas...
    
    Lehas:   Don’t worry about it. I understand.
    
    
    ( Meanwhile in Epentar...)
    Carian: I never realized... that the Light of Salvation
            harbored such secrets...
    
    Amila:  Yes, I knew you would be surprised. I didn’t 
            want to get you and the Blast Worms involved
            in such a dangerous task.
            I would take on the search for the Light of Salvation
            myself, but it would be impossible in my current
            condition.
            As of right now, the best course of action would
            be to leave this to you. The leaders of the Yason
            tribes concur with the decision.
    
    Azhadi: Your Majesty, obtaining the Light of Salvation
            will cure the Rheuma?
    
    Amila:  Yes.
    
    Roxy:   Excuse me Your Majesty, but if the Rheuma is 
            cured, the Yason will try to regain their power.
            The Blast Worms might suffer under their
            oppression.
    
    Orha:   There is no time to worry about such things.
    
    Amila:  When the Tree of Light is restored, your
            contribution will not be forgotten.
            I swear, no matter what happens, I will make
            sure that the Blast Worms are not persecuted.
            I understand your apprehensiveness. You
            should know why I created the Blast Worms.
            There is no need to worry.
    
    Roxy:   Thank you, Your Majesty...
    
    
    ( in the Tears of Blood Headquarters, before the Conference Room)
    Eonis:   Calintz, I heard that one of the Eight Heroes
             - Joshua – was often seen traveling on
             Mirna Road when he was older.
             Maybe if we go there and ask around,
             we can uncover more information about
             the Light of Salvation.
    
    Azel:    That’s a good idea. We should go everywhere
             The Eight Heroes went. Who knows what we’ll find...
    
    Chris:   If I remember correctly, Mirna Road is north
             of Lester... I heard it used to pass through 
             a village, but no one lives there anymore.
    
    Calintz: Alright, let’s go take a look. It can’t hurt.
    
    Chris:   First stop – Lester!

    ( After walking around, near a house the party finds what they’ve been        )
    ( looking for: another part of Joshua’s Memoirs.                              )
    |Joshua’s Memoirs 2 – “...After we sealed it, we were                         |
    |all relieved. But, we were wrong. When Behru said                            |
    |he was worried, we should have listened to him.                              |

    |“We were lucky enough that they never got the Lightning                      |
    |Shard since it was already sealed. It’s been 30 years                        |
    |and now a strange change took place.”                                        |

    |Land that was once flat has turned into mountains                            |
    |after 30 years. In some place volcanic eruptions have                        |
    |occurred. The power the Light of Salvation possessed                         |
    |was beyond imagination.”                                                     |

    |So there were rumors that someone did activate                               |

    |The tremendous amount of Cho from the Shards that                            |
    |were given to us started to eat away at out souls slowly...                  |
    |It’s as if they acknowledged that we were their protectors.                  |
    |This power is what nightmares are made from.                                 |

    Eonis:   The Light of Salvation has the power
             to affect the land in strange ways.
             That’s why the climate changed in Mt. Rhyde...
    
    Calintz: We should gather as much information from
             the affected areas as soon as possible.
    
    Azel:    Um... Captain? Master Smidt said a volcano formed
             a few years ago in the Yason area.
    
    Chris:   That sounds a little suspicious.
             A volcano popping out of nowhere...
             Could that be...?
    
    Calintz: Let’s go back to Headquarters and ask
             Master Smidt.
    
    ( On the world map, as Calintz and the others leave Mirna Road)
    Carian: So... you knew about the Light of Salvation?
    
    Neikan: ..........
    
    Azhadi: How did you find out?
    
    Neikan: ..........
    
    Carian: If the Light of Salvation comes under our control
            and the Tree of Light is restored, the Yason will
            not yield.
            The ones who looked down upon the Blast
            Worms will not relinquish their power so easily.
    
    Neikan: ..........
    
    Azhadi: ..........
    
    Neikan: ..........
    
    Carian: I’m sure that the power of the Light of 
            Salvation is just like our Familiars.
            We don’t need to get it back.
    
    Neikan: ..........
    
    Carian: The humans are searching for it, too?
            The mercenaries? How foolish...
            They don’t even know how to use it.
    
    Neikan: ..........
    
    Carian: It doesn’t matter.
            As long as it doesn’t fall into the hands of Amila...
    
    
    ( back at the Headquarters, at the smith’s room)
    Smidt: Welcome. Lookin’ for an upgrade?
    
    Azel:  Not today, Master Smidt. But, we do have a 
           question. Um, the volcano you were talking
           about the other day...
           Can you give us some more details about it?
    
    Smidt: You mean Mt. Feissen in the Yason territory?
           I heard about it from a friend who’s a traveling
           merchant.
           It wasn’t active until a few years ago, when it
           started erupting. Now, it’s so hot you can’t
           even go near it.
           Why do you ask?
    
    Azel:  Well, it’ been so hot lately, I thought it might
           be because of the volcano. Anyways, we’ll
           come back later for upgrades.
    
    ( After leaving the room)
    Chris:   Ha, I knew it! Somewhere on Mt. Feissen in - 
    
    Haren:   Hey, ya moron, keep it down...
             We should talk in private.
    
    Calintz: Then let’s go to my office.
    
    Haren:   Where’s that?
    
    Chris:   You’re a member of the Tears of Blood and
             You don't know where the Captain’s office is?
             You gotta be kidding me! Everyone knows that!
    
    Azel:    Um, Chris... The Captain’s office is on the left.
             The right side is where the living quarters are.
    
    Chris:   Um, then what are we going this way for?
    
    ( At Calintz’s office)
    Eonis:   An active volcano... Sounds dangerous.
    
    Calintz: This is going to be a difficult mission as the heat
             will be unbearable, so be prepared.
    
    Azel:    We should take the proper measures then...
    
    
    ( While Calintz and the others are leaving the area of the Headquarters, they )
    ( are stopped by Lehas.                                                       )
    Lehas:   Calintz!
             We receives a request from a unit
             stationed along the Maracatte battlefront.
             They were pursuing a Yason spy,
             but they lost him near Garute.
             They’re asking for our assistance.
    
    Eonis:   But, we have other orders.
    
    Lehas:   What orders?
    
    Chris:   The secret mission we told you about.
    
    Lehas:   I see.
    
    Chris:   Hey, don't get discouraged. Next time
             we’ll be happy to take orders from you. In fact,
             maybe we could talk about it over a few drinks...
    
    Lehas:   You should be on your way.
    
    Chris:   Is she mad?
    
    Azel:    Of course she is.
    
    Haren:   Hey, Calintz... Should we be keeping
             our mission a secret from her? 
             She IS a member...
    
    Calintz: It’s too early to tell her about it. Now, let’s go.
    
    
    ( On the world map)
    Calintz: Let’s head for Amrond Woods, first.
             It’s not far from the volcano.
    
    Chris:   Oooooh. But, all that heat could be dangerous.
    
    Haren:   If you can’t take it, then you’re not a real man.
    
    Chris:   What I meant was if I get any hotter, it’ll be
             too much for the ladies to handle.
    
    Calintz: Alright, let’s go.
    
    Chris:   Hey, wait up!

    Blast Worm: Hold it right there, humans!
                Where did you come from?
    
    Chris:      Man! I knew this was a bad idea...
    
    ( After the fight)

    Calintz: Let’s hurry. The rest of the Blast Worms

    Azel:  We finally found it.
    
    ( The earth starts to shake...)
    Chris: But, why do I have this strange feeling
           something bad’s gonna happen?
    
    ( While the earth is still shaking, on the ground a large symbol appears,     )
    ( and the orb, which is on a column, starts to glow. Also with the symbol,    )
    ( the guardian, which looks like a large caterpillar, also appears.           )

    Haren: Is that it?
    
    Eonis: No, we’ve still got to get away.

    ( On their way back to the Garute, the party stumbles upon...                 )
    Azhadi: What are you humans doing here?
            Going for a hike on Mt. Feissen?
    
    Eonis:  Azhadi!? On of the...
    
    Azhadi: You do realize that this is OUT territory?
    
    Haren:  So, what’s your point?
    
    Azhadi: My, aren’t you friendly? I despise humans
            more than anything in the world!
            Whaddaya think of that, tough guy?
    
    Haren:  I think your ugly face is making me sick to
            my stomach. Whaddaya think of that, freak?
    
    Azhadi: Ha. Confident, aren’t you?
    
    ( After Azhadi’s HP is below 50 %...                                          )
    Azhadi: You’re stronger than I thought. Let’s see
            how you fare against my familiar...
    
    (...he summons his Familiar, a Succubus.                                      )
    
    
    ( After finishing the Succubus)
    Azhadi:  Heh, heh. This is so much fun!
             Shall we play some more?
    
    Eonis:   This is insane. Azhadi is one of the strongest
             of the Four Warriors. We don’t stand a chance.
    
    ( Suddenly the Flare, that was given to Reith, appears on the sky. Surprised, )
    ( Azhadi turns his attention to that sight.                                   )
    Chris:   Huh? Look...!
    
    Calintz: Reith...

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Justina: Reith, let’s go to see the doctor, Alex.
             He may be able to help you.
    
    Reith:   Okay.
    
    Justina: And, one other thing...
    
    Reith:   Yes?
    
    Justina: In the past, we could depend on Calintz in battle.
             But now, it’s just the two of us. We should think 
             carefully before acting.
    
    Reith:   That’s true...
    
    Justina: ...Especially since we cast similar magic and use 
             the same Chi. We’ll have to change the properties 
             of the Lanterns from time to time,
             or else we’ll run out of Chi. That will make thinks
             a lot more difficult, so be careful.
    
    Reith:   Oh, I get it... We need to change the Lanterns 
             so they provide Water or Ice Chi, right?
    
    Justina: ...I guess I’ll have to play leader
             for the time being.
    
    ( At the inn, when going near the person, who is waiting there)
    Justina: Pardon us...
             Dr. Bronx?
    
    Alex:    Yes. I’m his older brother, Alex.
    
    Justina: You two look so much alike.
    
    Alex:    Yes, the resemblance is uncanny.
             We are twins after all.
    
    Justina: Dr. Bronx sent us here to meet with you.
             I am the priestess, Justina.
    
    Alex:    Yes, I read the letter.
             Please, come with me.
    
    
    Alex:    It’s exactly like my brother said.
    
    Justina: Reith is missing some of her Chi?
    
    Alex:    Yes. This is very rare, indeed...
    
    Justina: Can you cure her? 
    
    Alex:    If it’s just a memory loss, all I need to do is
             untangle the Chi that is mixed up. Her memory
             should return within a month or two.
             However, since the Chi is missing, there’s really
             nothing I can do. We’ll just have to wait until it
             comes back naturally.
    
    Justina: Oh, I see...
    
    Alex:    I’ll try to recreate her memory from the remaining
             Chi she has left. 
    
    ( After a few second of silence, the sound of someone running and something  )
    ( burning can be heard.                                                      )
    ????????: Papa! Papa!
    
    ( Reith, sitting on a bed in the inn, suddenly opens her eyes)
    Justina: Reith? Are you okay?
    
    Alex:    Just relay. Take a deep breath...
             Now, tell me. What happened?
    
    Reith:   Papa... died. I didn’t wanna leave him, but someone
             pulled me away... I had to run...!
    
    Justina: Reith, that’s all in the past now.
    
    Alex:    Indeed it is. Do you remember anything else?
    
    Reith:   There was a village – a village where children were playing
             on top of a hill. There was a dojo there, too.
    
    Alex:    Hmm... Could it be Fuget?
    
    Reith:   Huh?
    
    Alex:    There used to be a dojo there. They cared for children who
             had no home. Many fine swordsmen trained there, but it
             was destroyed by the Yason about ten years ago.
    
    Reith:   Fuget... That’s where Calintz is from.
    
    Justina: Really?
    
    Reith:   Yes, I’m sure of it.
    
    Justina: Then, maybe we should go there.
             We might be able to find some clues.
    
    
    Justina: Reith, it won1t be easy with just the two of us.
             We should try to stay out of trouble
             as much as possible.
    
    Reith:   You’re right. We should be careful and move in
             Detect Mode.

    ( Walking near a small pavilion, Reith and Justina sees a strange trio:       )
    ( two Alliance soldiers and a white haired man.                               )
    
    Soldier 1: I’ve had enough of playing cat and mouse!
               Why don’t you just surrender!?
    
    ?????????: I’m surprised you lasted this long. Well done.
    
    Soldier 2: I’ll capture you no matter what it takes!
               I don’t care if you’re alive or dead.
    
    Soldier 1: Hey...
    ( Suddenly Soldier 1 realizes, that Reith and Justina are watching them.      )
    ( Reith slowly walks near the white haired man.                               )
    Justina:   Oh no, here comes trouble.
    
    Soldier 1: Can I help you, Miss?
    
    Reith:     Why are you chasing him? It’s two against one! That’s not fair!
    
    Justina:   ...I knew it.
    
    ?????????: Thank you. They’re accusing me of being a Yason.
               I don’t know what to do...
    
    Soldier 2: Ya dirty little half breed!
    
    ?????????: What? I haven’t done anything wrong. If I’m a half Yason,
               then why don’t I have a Vindi on my body?
    
    Soldier 2: You little weasel... How can you lie like that?
    
    Soldier 1: Hey...
               Miss, don’t be fooled. He’s a spy from Yason Roven.
               He’s hiding his Vindi.
    
    Justina:   Do you have proof of that?
    
    Soldier 2: Well, um... Not exactly... But, if I can just get
               my hands on him, then I’ll make him talk.
    
    Reith:     Make him... talk?
    
    ?????????: Hold on... Now I’m really worried. Even someone who’s
               innocent will admit his guilt if he’s in enough pain. Right?
    
    Justina:   I see that you’re from the Maracatte Frontline, 
               but even so, this is going too far.
    
    Soldier 2: Priestess, save that pretty voice of yours for praying.
               Stay outta our buseness.
    
    ?????????: Enough already. You guys are pissing me off.
    
    ( A blonde girl appears walking from behind the soldiers.                     )
    Soldier 2: Who the hell are you?
    
    Blonde girl: If you don’t shut up, my fists will make you quiet!

    ( After the fight with the two soldier.                                       )
    ???????: You all came to my rescue. Thanks so much.
    
    Rianna:  Being mistakes for a Yason... I guess a pretty
             face doesn’t always make things easier.
    
    ???????: Ahahaha. When I go to Maracatte, it happens every time
             I guess I’d be better off going to Garute.
    
    Reith:   Are you okay?
    
    ???????: Thanks to you, Miss. It was nice of you to stand up for me.
             Excuse me, but what’s your name?
    
    Reith:   My name is Reith.
    
    ???????: I’m Sdei. May I ask for the names of your companions?
    
    Justina: I’m Justina.
    
    Rianna:  And I’m Rianna.
    
    Sdei:    I’d like to thank you properly, but I’m in a rush,
             so I have to go... It’s not much, but here... Take this...
    
    Justina: We didn’t help you to be rewarded. As a priestess, 
             I was insulted by the way they addressed me.
    
    Sdei:    Oh, you can’t possibly refuse.
             Please, take it. I’ll feel bad if you don’t.

    Rianna:  So, where are you headed next?
    
    Sdei:    Well, I was thinking of Notia.
    
    Rianna:  Have you seen another scrawny guy like you around?
             He’s an adventure that researches Chi and Carta.
             His name is...
             Well, he changes it in every town, so I don’t know what it is.
    
    Sdei:    hmmm... Not that I remember.
    
    Rianna:  Yeah, I didn’t think it’s be that easy. Okay, see ya.
    
    Sdei:    Farewell. I’m sure we’ll meet again. It must have
             been fate that brought us together... right?
    
    
    
    Reith:   So Rianna, you’re married? It must be wonderful.
    
    Rianna:  That’s what you would thin. But, my husband
             is so obsessed with Chi and Carta that he’s 
             forgotten what it means to be married.
    
    Reith:   Where are you going to go now?
    
    Rianna:  Well, you’ve probably never heard of it, 
             but I was on my way to Fuget.
             My husband said something about it being a
             great lace to conduct his research. So I figured,
             it would be a good place to start looking for him.
    
    Reith:   Hey! That’s where we’re headed.
             We should go together!
    
    Justina: Reith... Your naivety is endearing, 
             but don’t be so quick to trust people so easily...
             Especially the likes of her...
    
    Rianna:  Hello? I’m standing right here...
    
    Justina: Well, it’s true... We don't really know you.
    
    Rianna:  Hmmm, so I can trust you because you’re a 
             priestess?
    
    Justina: I never asked you to trust me in the first place.
    
    Rianna:  We fought together, doesn’t that mean
             anything to you? The only reason I helped
             you out because I was bored. 
             Besides, if I really wanted to hurt you,
             do ya think I’d do it alone?
    
    Reith:   She does have a point Justina...
             She is all by herself, that in and of itself is
             dangerous.
    
    Justina: She seems to be doing just fine from what I can
             see...
             Alright, we will accompany you to Fuget.
             But, that doesn’t mean I trust you...
    
    Rianna:  Yeah, yeah, don’t do me any favors...
    
    Reith:   Nice to meet you.
    
    Rianna:  Yeah, the same here.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [ At the area of Ranca / Garute there is no conversation.]
    
    ( A few ruined, burnt out houses - that’s what remained from Fuget.          )
    Rianna:  Fuget was destroyed by the Yason... 10 years ago.
    
    ( Behind Reith, the image of a little girl appears)
    Girl:    Papa, I wanna live here.
             Can we? I wanna play with the other kids.
    
    ( Reith turns around, but the little girl is gone. Justina walks to her.)
    Justina: Are you okay, Reith?
    
    Reith:   Yes...
    
    Rianna:  I guess he’s not here.
    
    Justina: Your husband?
    
    Rianna:  Yes. I feel I’ll run into him eventually...
             I keep waiting for it to happen, even though it probably won’t.
    
    
    ( In the eastern corner of Fuget stands the same little girl, who appeared    )
    ( behind Reith. When Reith notices it, first it disappears, then a glowing    )
    ( sphere appears in the same place.                                           )
    Rianna:  What’s wrong? See something?
    
    ( Reith touches the image, which keeps changing from the little girl to the   )
    ( sphere, and collapses.                                                      )
    Amila:   To end the war, it’s the only way.
    
    ( Starry night sky, strange looking building, floating rocks, which look like )
    ( islands, large crystals – That the memory that Reith gets back.             )
    ( When she wakes up, Justina is kneeling beside her.                          )
    Justina: Reith, what’s wrong? Are you okay?
    
    Reith:   Y-Yeah... something just appeared right in front of me...
    
    Justina: Did you memory come back?
    
    Rianna:  What? Did you lost your memory? My husband could help you,
             if he was here. But, he’s off researching Chi and Carta.
             I don’t know how he could leave such a cure wife behind...
    
    Justina: I don’t think Reith’s case... it that simple.
    
    Rianna:  Why, is her condition that serious? Has a cleric examined her?
    
    Justina: Yes. From her remaining memories, we got Fuget a clue.
             It’s a good thing we came here.
             It seems like more of her memory returned.
    
    ( Reith, still sitting on the ground, holds a small, green rock in her hand.  )
    Rianna:  If my darling husband found out about this, he’d be quite 
             intrigued. Hey, you know what? One time he healed
             a patient, that even a cleric couldn’t cure.
    
    Reith:   Then, you think he can restore my memory?
    
    Rianna:  Well, I’m not positive... But, probably!
    
    Reith:   Really? Maybe if we al search for him together...
    
    Justina: Reith... Are you sure you’re okay?
    
    Reith:   Of course. I just want to get my memory back...
    
    Amila:   To end the war, it’s the only way.
    
    Reith:   I have to get it back.
    
    ( While going out of Fuget, the girls are “welcomed” by a familiar voice...   )
    Roxy:    So, you’re still alive.
    
    Reith:   *gasp* You’re the one who tried to...
    
    Justina: You know her?
    
    Reith:   Calintz said she’s one of The Four Warriors.
    
    Rianna:  What!? She’s one of them!?
    
    Justina: Is that true?
    
    Roxy:    Yes. My name is Roxy Midka.
    
    Justina: What do you want?
    
    Roxy:    All I need it the girl. No one else has to get hurt.
    
    Rianna:  But, what do you need me for!?
    
    Reith:   I don’t understand. Why are you only after me?
    
    Roxy:    Someone would like to speak with you.
             That’s all I can say.
    
    Justina: You don’t expect us to just hand her over, do you?
    
    Roxy:    I didn’t think you’d let her go without a fight.
    
    ( During the fight with Roxy, when her HP reached 50%...                      )
    Roxy:    Well done. But, how long will you survive
             against my familiar?
    
    ( After the battle with Steelheart...                                         )
    Roxy:    I guess it won’t be as easy as I thought?
    
    ( Suddenly Carian appears, slowly walking towards them.                       )
    Carian:  You call that a fight?
             You won’t have much luck trying to capture them like that.
    
    ( After a small hand gesture of Carian, which also looks like as if she’s     )
    ( thrown something to the girls, a large blackish – grayish orb appears       )
    ( around Reith, Rianna and Justina.                                           )
    Roxy:    Carian!
    
    Rianna:  Uaah!? What the...!
    
    Justina: It’s and illusion.
    
    Rianna:  What a dirty trick!
    
    Reith:   What’s happening?
    
    Justina: Don’t worry Reith. With a little luck,
             we should be able to break free.
    
    Reith:   Huh? Break free from what?
    
    Rianna:  This barrier! If we don’t get out of here,
             we won’t be able to move.
    
    Reith:   Barrier? What barrier?
    
    Rianna:  Huh? Are you blind?
    
    Reith:   But, I don’t see anything.
    
    ( Reith hold out her hand, and touches the place, where the barrier is. In an )
    ( instant it breaks into pieces.                                              )
    Carian:  My illusion...!
    
    Justina: Reith!?
    
    Rianna:  Wow! That was amazing. Do you know magic?
    
    Reith:   Huh? Magic? What’s that?
    
    Roxy:    Seems like your illusion is more of a daydream than a nightmare.
    
    Carian:  Hmph. That was just child’s play.
             I’ll show you my true power.
    
    
    [ NOTE: After the fight with Carian, even if she IS beaten, the conversation  ]
    [ is the same, when the Reith-Rianna-Justina trio is beaten by the Yasons.    ]
    
    ( Justina is sitting on the ground, Rianna and Reith are still standing, but  )
    ( they all are in very bad shape.                                             )
    Rianna:  Ugh... Damn it.
    
    Carian:  *chuckle* I knew it. No matter how hard
             you try, you cant beat me.
    
    Reith:   Tell me... Why are you after me?
    
    Roxy:    I told you before. I’m just following orders.
    
    Reith:   From who?
    
    Orha:    From me.
             Carian, may I ask what you are doing here?
    
    Carian:  Oh, poor Roxy seemed to be having trouble, 
             so I came to lend a hand.
    
    Rianna:  He’s one of The Four Warriors, too!
             There are three of ‘em here!?
    
    ( Reith is watching the Flare which they got from Chris.                      )
    Justina: Reith, just shoot it.
    
    Reith:   Okay.
    
    Orha:    Hmph... Calling for help?
    
    ( Reith shoots up the flare, which like fireworks, explodes in the sky.       )

    ( still standing eye to eye with Azhadi, trying to figure out what to do.     )
    Eonis:   I wonder what happened to Reith.
    
    Azel:    What should we do Captain?
    
    Calintz: Let’s go. It’s not far from here.
    
    Azhadi:  Hehe... Where do you think you’re going?
    
    Haren:   Damn, not again!?
    
    Chris:   We don’t have time to waste!
    
    ( After finishing Azhadi...)
    Azel:    We have to find Reith and the others,
             before it’s too late!
    
    Chris:   Damsels in distress! Sounds like a job for Chris!
    
    Haren:   Stop acting like an idiot. Let’s get moving!
    
    Eonis:   The flare looked like it was coming from Fuget...
    
    Haren:   Then the shortest route is through
             the Valley of Lester and Lester Woods.
    
    Calintz: First, we need to get out of here.

    ( Calintz arrives at the are from the west. Going near the save point...      )
    Calintz: The Four Warriors!
    
    Reith:   Calintz!
    
    Orha:    The knight in shining armour has
             arrived – faster than I expected.
    
    Calintz: Back off!
    
    Orha:    ...And apparently quick to anger, too.
    
    [ NOTE: After the fight with Orha, even if he IS beaten, the conversation     ]

    Reith: Calintz...
    
    Orha:  I’m surprised you lasted this long.
           But not, it’s time to end this.
    
    ( Orha summons his Familiar, a large Raven.)
    Haren: How did he do that!?
    
    Orha:  Farewell.
    
    ( The Raven slowly starts to fly towards Calintz, who covers his head with    )
    ( his arms...                                                                 )

    ( Then it flies backwards, beside to it’s master.                             )
    Carian: It can’t be... A familiar disobeyed its master!?

    ( others can run away.                                                        )
    Carian: I never thought the great Orha would be defeated.
            This is a serious setback.
    
    Orha:   Since when did you start speaking to me like that?
            I feed him fresh meat every time I summon him.
            Would you like to end up as his next meal?
            That human... He’s protecting her without
            having any idea of the truth.
            I don’t know how the hell you got involved in this,
            but stop meddling in other people’s affairs.
            I have already assigned you a task.
    
    Carian: Hmph.
    
    
    
    ( On the world map)
    Chris:   Phew, there goes 10 years of my life...
             I didn’t expect three of ‘em to show up.
    
    Calintz: What happened?
    
    Justina: I don’t know. Either way, they were following us or
             it was just a coincidence...

             Reith again.

    Eonis:   Haren, I don’t want to hear it!
    
    Justina: I think it would be best if we return to 
             Headquarters. I don’t think we’ll be as fortunate
             if they come after us again.

    ( In the Conference Room)
    Justina: When Reith was young, she lived in Fuget.
    
    Chris:   Fuget is Calintz’s home village.
    
    Eonis:   Do you remember anything else?
             Any reason why the Four Warriors would 
             be after you... Anything at all?
    
    Justina: I have no idea. She did have a strange reaction
             at Fuget, but she hasn’t really told me anything.
    
    Haren:   She should hurry up and regain her memory. 
             This time we were lucky...
             But if the Four Warriors keep coming at us,
             I dunno how long we can hold out.
    
    Rianna:  Then why don’t you ask them?
             Wouldn’t be that the fastest way?
    
    Chris:   Now, why the hell didn’t I think of that!?
             Sure, we can invite them over for a dinner,
             have some smores, talk about old ti-
             Just who are you anyways?
             Is she a new member?
    
    Justina: No, we just met her along way.
    
    Rianna:  Hey! Is that how you introduce people?
             I’m Rianna. I’ve got some experience being a 
             merc...
             Right now, I’m just looking for my husband.
    
    Chris:   Hu-husband!? That means you’re married?
             A married woman?
    
    Rianna:  Yeah, boy wonder, that’s what ‘married’ means.
    
    Chris:   ...Good women always get taken first.
    
    Eonis:    Marriage... Isn’t it grand?
    
    Rianna:   A grand pain in the ass.
    
    Haren:    Whatever... Can we trust you?
    
    Rianna:   Not this again. Look here, I can be pretty handy
              when it comes to a fight...
              No offense to you guys, but you look like you can 
              use all the help you can get at the moment.
              Besides, I thought mercenaries don’t like to 
              dwell on the past.
    
    Chris:    Of course! As I like to say... The future you’ll
              spend with a woman is much more important
              than whatever happened in the past...
    
    Haren:    Man, you’re so full of it...
    
    
    
    ( In front of the building of the Headquarters, Reith is sitting, deep in her )
    ( thoughts, Lehas standing beside her.                                        )
    Lehas: You seem to be feeling better.
    
    Reith: Yes.
    
    Lehas: How are you?
           Did you get a little bit of your memory back?
    
    Reith: I don’t think so... I want to hurry and get my memory back,
           so Haren can trust me. But...
    
    Lehas: Oh, don’t pay attention to that guy.
           He’s always been like that.
           He’s suspicious of everyone and everything.
    
    Reith: Oh no, Haren is a strong and courageous person.
           Considering his fiancée was killed by the Yason...
           I don’t blame him.
    
    Lehas: That pretty much goes for everyone here.
           I also lost a captain in the Hargen War. I guess
           people deal with loss in their own way.
    
    Reith: I see... That person must have been important
           to you then.
    
    Lehas: ...Yeah.
    
    Reith: I don’t fully understand the Yason.
           Maybe that’s why I don’t hate them.
           But, everyone wants to fight them.
    
    Lehas: I do believe there are some who are still pure
           of heart and would like the fighting to end. 
           Yet the war continues...
           Unfortunately, war is something people with
           power instigate. The remaining majority are just
           puppets caught in the middle to amuse them.
           Fighting for self-preservation and fighting for
           the purpose of conquering anther people are
           completely different entities.
           Try no to confuse the two... 
           Believe me, if I had a choice, I’d rather not fight.
    
    Reith: Lehas... you have a kind soul.
    
    Lehas: Huh?
    
    Reith: I have a feeling... you were waiting for someone
           to say that to you.
    
    Lehas: I was just sharing my opinion, that’s all...
    
    Reith: No, it really helped me, thank you.
    
    Lehas: Well, if you say so...
    
    
    
    Justina: What’s wrong? You look a little dazed.
    
    Reith:   I’m fine... It’s just that when we were at Fuget...
             I saw a younger version of myself standing before me.
    
    Justina: What do you mean? Was it an illusion?
    
    Reith:   I’m not really sure...
             When I tried to reach out to myself, the illusion
             just disappeared in a cloud of smoke.
             But, I think I got part of my memory back
             because of it...
    
    Justina: It’s probably because Fuget is somewhere
             in your lost memory. So, maybe that’s why
             you saw that illusion.
    
    Reith:   But, the strange thing is when I came to,
             I had this stone in my hand.
    
    Justina: A stone?
    
    Reith:   Yes... Look at this...
             You did say that I’m missing Chi that makes up
             my memories. Maybe there is some of that
             missing Chi inside this stone?
    
    Justina: This stone is most likely a divine vessel, the only
             thing that can preserve Chi. Divine vessels can be
             anything that is found in nature...
             So, I wouldn’t be surprised if Chi were preserved
             in something like this.
    
    Reith:   So... This stone showed me the illusion.
    
    Justina: I believe so... This stone apparently contained
             parts of your memory which took form in reality.
             If this stone does carry your Chi, maybe it was
             yours to begin with.
    
    Reith:   Why would I lose it then?
    
    Justina: It could be related to your memory loss.
             But, you didn’t get back all of your memories?
    
    Reith:   No... I still don’t know why I’m like this...
    
    Justina: They there might be other stones of object 
             that contain the rest of your memories. 
             Reith, you are no ordinary person...
    
    Reith:   That may be so...
             But, I do want to regain my memory.
    
    Justina: Reith, keep this stone safe and secret...
             Do not tell anyone about it, even Calintz.
    
    Reith:   Why?
    
    Justina: This particular divine vessel is very valuable.
             It holds an enormous amount of Chi and there are
             people who will try to steal it from you.
             Remember, trust no one...
    
    Reith:   Okay, I will do as you say.
             But, will it be alright to tell Calintz once I get all
             my memories back?
    
    Justina: ...When that happens, it shouldn’t matter. 
             I’m sure you will know when the time is right.
    
    Reith:   Mmhmm...
    
    ( Meanwhile in Epentar)
    Azhadi: We sill don’t know why the Tears of Blood
            were on Mt. Feissen. They must have been on
            some secret mission.
    
    Amila:  The Tears of Blood... Orha, how long do you
            intend to let them interfere with our plan?
    
    Orha:   They have proven to be a worthy adversary. 
            I will take care of them immediately.
    
    Amila:  Roxy, I want you to retrieve the water fragment.
            The future of our people depend on it.
    
    Roxy:   I understand, Your Majesty.
    
    Amila:  The only way to save our people is to revive
            the Tree of Light.
    
    Carian: ( Hmph... We’ll see of you get your way, Your Majesty.)
    
    
    ( Meanwhile in Amabat)
    Agreian:  I’m totally against it.
    
    Ladrinne: Your opinion is irrelevant. The decision is mine.
    
    Agreian:  Mother!
    
    Ladrinne: There are many injured people in Lester. 
              They put their faith in the Forbidden Magic,
              but the plan failed.
    
    Agreian:  It’s the Alliance’s duty to protect them.
              If you go there, you’ll become the target
              of Yason attacks.
    
    Ladrinne: Many mages and soldiers are among the victims.
              There were clerics and priestesses who fell, too.
              I was opposed to the plan from the beginning.
              It was a mistake to attack the Yason using the 
              Forbidden Magic.
    
    Agreian:  They were lucky this time.
              They were able to defect out magic attack
              using that power, the Magna Carta.
              But ever so... We won’t just give up.
    
    Ladrinne: I understand that you’re worried, Agreian,
              but by trying to protect me, you’re putting
              the lives of may others in danger. 
              Many of those who suffer are yearning for
              my divine protection. I cannot just ignore
              their pleas.
    
    Agreian:  Mother...
              Alright. I’ll abide by your wished. 
              But, at least allow me to make the arrangements 
              for your departure.
    
    Ladrinne: Very well. Thank you.
    
    ( Back at the Headquarters)
    Eonis:   It’s almost Lehas’s birthday... Did you remember?
    
    Calintz: ...Is it?
    
    Eonis:   I knew you’d forget. That’s pretty sad.
             We’re always so busy, we never have any time
             to celebrate, you know?
             We cause Lehas a lot of trouble, so I thought we 
             should do something nice for her this year.
    
    Calintz: ...Yeah, I guess you’re right.
    
    Eonis:   I hears she has a lot of nightmares, so I thought
             a Mage Statue would be the perfect gift. In Bayer,
             it’s a charm we give to bring pleasant dreams.
             It’s made using Moon Rock, Mud and Geckra
             Bone. I asked Master Smidt to make one for us. 
             Once we’ve got all the ingredients,
             we should go see him. It wouldn’t hurt to ask
             around... Maybe another member of
             the Tears of Blood has one these ingredients.
             If we go look for a Geckra Bone near Lester 
             or Fuget, we might bump into one of
             The Four Warriors. 
             Geckra also lives in the Mt. Ranca area,
             so let’s go there.
    
    Geckra Bone – if there isn’t one already in the inventory, the party can get
                  one from the only place they can go, Mt. Ranca.
    
    Mud – one of the girls in the room, that just above the conference room
    Girl: Wanna try a mud pack, Eonis? I brought it from
          my home village... It’s good for your skin.
    
    ( if you speak again with her)
    Girl: Did you use the mud pack? How was it?
          It looks like it’s working... Your skin is 
          so smooth.
    
    Moon Rock – speaking with one of the soldiers, who are walking in the hall
    Soldier: Hey, Captain! I found this key when I was
             cleaning. Why don’t you take it?
    
    |                            Black Key acquired!                              |
    
    Soldier: I wonder that that key is for.
    
    With the key, the closed chest, which is in the basement can be opened.
    
    |                            Moon Rock acquired!                              |
    
    ( After successfully gathering all three materials, at Master Smidt           )
    Smidt:   Eonis told me what you’re looking for. Seems like
             all the ingredients are here. I’ll get started.
             Here’s the Mage Statue you wanted.
    
    |                          Mage Statue acquired!                              |
    
    Calintz: Thank you.
    
    
    ( In the Conference Room)
    Lehas:   What’s this?
    
    Calintz: I heard it was your birthday.
    
    Lehas:   ......
             I’m surprised you remembered.
             Or, did Eonis tell you?
    
    Calintz: I can’t deny it.
    
    Lehas:   That’s okay. I don’t know your birthday, either.
    
    Calintz: .......
             The present’s from all of us. It’s not much.
    
    Lehas:   Wow, a...
    
    Calintz: It’s a charm called a Mage Statue. It’s supposed
             to bring you pleasant dreams.
    
    Lehas:   I see...
    
    Calintz: I hear you have a lot of nightmares.
    
    Lehas:   Really? Did Eonis tell you that?
    
    Calintz: Are they about the past?
    
    Lehas:   I try to forget about it... But, I guess it’s still in
             my subconscious.
    
    Calintz: Um... By the way... Happy birthday.
    
    Lehas:   ...It’s a little unusual, but thank you.
             I’ll take good care of it.
    
    
    ( In front of the Conference Room)
    Eonis: Good job. Now, I’ve got something to tell you...
           You should take a look at Joshua’s Memoirs...
    
    
    |“...Yeja never returned, and Moria got tired of                              |
    |waiting. About seven or eight years later,                                   |
    |Mt. Feissen began to erupt again.                                            |
    |                                                                             |
    |That’s when I realized what Yeja went to do.”                                |
    |                                                                             |
    |                                                                             |
    |“Around the same time, I started having                                      |
    |nightmares. In the dream, I’d be alone in                                    |
    |paradise, and I’d hear a whisper on the wind:                                |
    |                                                                             |
    |‘Collect the Light of Salvation, and the world                               |
    |shall be yours...’ It sounded as if the devil                                |
    |was trying to tempt me.”                                                     |
    |                                                                             |

    |“I began to understand what Behru and Yeja must                              |
    |have gone through. So, I left Notia and started                              |
    |living quietly in the countryside of Mirna.                                  |
    |                                                                             |
    |I saw Moria again, and she broke a very long                                 |
    |silence.”                                                                    |
    |                                                                             |
    |                                                                             |
    |“Moria sealed away the Mountain Shard.                                       |
    |She realized from the start that something                                   |
    |about the Light of Salvation was not right.”                                 |
    |                                                                             |

    |“I heard that many changes were occurring in                                 |
    |the Ice Fields of Nordon. Moria warned me to                                 |
    |hurry up and seal the Ice Shard. She had a                                   |
    |safe place in mind. It was the same                                          |
    |place I had thought of.”                                                     |

    |“Before my mental state deteriorates any further,                            |
    |I must pass on the position of Great Cleric...”                              |
    
    Eonis:   Calintz, in Joshua’s Memoirs, it said something
             about that thing the General wants us to find.
    
    Calintz: Okay, let’s talk in my office.
    
    ( In Calintz’s office)a
    Calintz: If Joshua’s Memoirs are true, then the Mountain
             Shard should be at the Ice Fields of Nordon.
             Eonis, you’re from Bayer, 
             so you should be fairly familiar with that area.
    
    Eonis:   Yes. But, I have never been to Nordon.
             Many have ventures there, but none have ever
             returned. 
    
    Haren:   This is just great... First, a volcano, 
             now an ice field. Next, you’ll be telling’ me
             we’re going underwater...
    
    Calintz: We should inform Lehas and the General, 
             but we’ll leave as soon as we make the necessary 
             preparations.
    
    |                         Agreian is calling you.                             |
    
    ( At the Communication Sphere)
    Agreian: I was conducting geographic research on Nordon
             to see if there were any changes after the Eight 
             Heroes went there. It seem to be the case...
    
    Calintz: The same thing was said in the memoirs,
             so I’m sure.
    
    Agreian: I see.
             If you’re going to Nordon, you won’t we able 
             to use the Azure Wings because of the terrible
             weather conditions. Be sure to prepared.
    
    Calintz: I understand.
             I will contact you again when we arrive.
    
    Agreian: Before you go, you should know that you might
             receive an escort order for the Great Prayer
             Festival from the Alliance.
    
    Calintz: The Great Prayer Festival? At a time like this?
    
    Agreian: I know this is horrible timing, but Mother
             strongly desires it... I have no control over it...
             I just hope nothing happens.
    
    Calintz: I see.
    
    Agreian: Your priority should be placed on finding the
             Mountain Shard. I will talk to the Alliance army.
    
    Calintz: Alright.
    
    Agreian: I wish you luck.
    
    
    ( Right after speaking with General Agreian)
    Reith:   Lehas was looking for you.
             She’s having a meeting.
    
    
    ( In the Conference Room)
    Lehas:   Since many fell victim to the Forbidden Magic...
             Amabat has decided that the Great Prayer
             Festival will still be held to lift the spirit of the
             people.
    
    Eonis:   Isn’t it dangerous to hold an event like that at a
             time like this? We simply don’t have enough
             soldiers to guarantee Mistress Ladrinne’s safety.
    
    Lehas:   Their plan is to send out decoys, so the exact
             location of the festival won’t be known until
             the start of the festival.
             Rumor has it the real Great Priestess will be
             heading to Lester.
    
    Justina: So Mistress Ladrinne has decided to go through
             with it...
    
    Calintz: The real Great Priestess won’t be at Lester.
             Amabat wouldn’t reveal where the real one is.
    
    Azel:    Then the real one could be hidden somewhere among the fake ones.
    
    Calintz: What’s the mission?
    
    Lehas:   You are to escort one of the decoys from Erestine
             to Fuget.
    
    Calintz: I see...
    
    Lehas:   It’s a direct order from the Alliance army,
             so you should act immediately.
    
    Azel:    But...
    
    Lehas:   Yes, I am aware that Agreian has given you an
             important mission.
    
    Chris:   Whoa, what a dilemma this is...
             That secret mission is more urgent.
             Oh, how it pains me to reject a mission from
             the beautiful Lehas...
    
    Lehas:   I have no idea what all of you are up to, 
             but I need someone to tae on this mission. 
    
    Haren:   Agreian said he would talk to the Alliance about
             it, but we’re not the only member of the Tears
             of Blood, ya know?
    
    Justina: Oh, are you referring to us?
    
    Haren:   Well, you guys gotta earn your keep somehow, 
             ya know?
    
    Reith:   Haren is right, we need to be more helpful.
             I am a member of the Tears of Blood after all.
    
    Haren:   You think they’ll be alright?
    
    Calintz: We’ll leave this to Justina and Reith...
             They’ll be fine.
    
    Justina: You need not worry, we can handle an escort 
             mission.
    
    
    ( Meanwhile in Epentar)
    Carian: According to my sources, the Great Prayer
            Ceremony will soon be performed in Garute.
    
    Amila:  Just as I thought. After failing with
            the Forbidden Magic, there’s not
            much else they can do.
    
    Carian: Your Majesty, if we could abduct the Great
            Priestess, it would simplify our search for
            the Light of Salvation immensely.  
    
    Orha:   But... can she be captured so easily?
    
    Amila:  It might be difficult, but it would be worth
            the trouble. Carian, it was your suggestion.
            Will you accept the mission?
    
    Carian: I am honored, Your Majesty.
            But, the task is too difficult for me alone.
            Would you allow Azhadi to accompany my?
    
    Amila:  Is that alright with you, Azhadi?
    
    Azhadi: I’ll do as you with, Your Majesty.
    
    Amila:  Then, it’s settled. Carian and Azhadi will
            handle this matter, while Roxy deals with
            the situation in Bayer.
    
    Roxy:   Yes, Your Majesty.
    
    Amila:  The Yason race is screaming in pain.
            Don’t forget that you four are the light of hope.
    
    
    ( At the same room, but this time, only Orha is standing there.)
    Blast Worm: Is there something on your mind, sir?
    
    Orha:       No... Go search Mt. Feissen thoroughly.
                Find out what the Tears of Blood were 
                looking for.
    
    Blast Worm: Yes, sir.
    
    
    ( On the world map)
    Carian: Azhadi and I will leave on the same day as the
            festival. We’ll keep our end of the agreement,
            so don’t forget yours.
    
    Neikan: ..........
    
    Carian: Hahaha! I can’t wait to see the look on Roxy’s face
            when she comes back. She was so confident when
            she left.
    
    
    
    ( Meanwhile in Epentar, a Blast Worm is holding a triangle shaped object,     )
    ( which looks like Amila’s mask. But this Blast Worm is not wearing the       )
    ( the full uniform, the face is uncovered, and can be seen the it is a girl.  )
    ( She puts the mask down on a table, leaves the room, but before leaving she  )
    ( turns back for a moment, checking the mask.                                 )
    
    
    ( On the world map)
    Haren:   Hmm... The Mountain Shard is somewhere in
             the Ice Fields of Nordon. 
             How do you suppose we get there?
    
    Chris:   Dude, where have you been!? 
             Did you forget we have the Rusty?
             Seems to me like someone’s taken one too many
             hits on the head.
    
    Calintz: Then, let’s head to Efor.

    ( At Rostin’s house)
    Rostin:  Nordon, eh? Hmmm...
    
    Calintz: Is it impossible?
    
    Rostin:  Impossible? No.
             Insane? Yes.
             I did make some adjustments to the Rusty 28
             so we should be fine.
             Besides, if I do something the Azure Wings can’t
             do, the Rusty will be famous!
             I can leave anytime, so when you’re ready, let me know.
    
    Rostin:  Are you ready?
    
    - Yes.
    Rostin:  Then let’s get going!
    
    ( On the world map, the airship goes from Efor to Nordon, where...)
    Chris:   Hey pops... Something’s not right.
    
    Rostin:  The wind is too strong, so I can’t go any further.
             I’ll have to set her down here.
             Seems like this is it.
             Sorry, I couldn’t do any better.
    
    Calintz: It’s alright, you did what you could.
             We can take it from here.
    
    Rostin:  Ok, I’ll be waiting for you here.
             If at all possible, please try to hurry.

    Azel:  This mountain is huge.
    
    Eonis: It may not look like it, but it’s only been a couple
           of decades since it was formed.
    
    ( Finally arriving at the top of the mountain, the party ends up before a     )
    ( a strange looking building. As they go closer, just like at the other ruins,)
    ( a large symbol appears on the ground and it is followed by the Guardian.    )

    ( In Erestine, before the surprised Reith, Rianna and Justine, there are 3    )
    ( Mistress Ladrinne standing.                                                 )
    Rianna:   They all look the same!
    
    Justina:  Of course. They are decoys.
    
    Reith:    They are? They all look different to me.
    
    Justina:  Just as I thought. You can’t be fooled, Reith.
    
    ( One of the Mistress Ladrinne’s walks a few steps forward.                   )
    Ladrinne: Thank you for coming.
    
    Justina:  We’re from the Tears of Blood.
              You’re not Mistress Ladrinne... are you?
    
    Ladrinne: No, I’m not. I’ve been disguised.
              Come... We must hurry...
    
    Reith:    Huh...?
    
    ( Mistress Ladrinne  walks a few steps forward.                               )
    Ladrinne: I’m counting on you.
    
    Reith:    Um...
    
    Ladrinne: Please...
    
    Reith:    Okay.
    
    
    ( As they go near the place where they met Rianna, Reith suddenly stops.      )
    Rianna:  You’ve noticed it, too?
    
    Reith:   Um...
    
    Justina: Someone’s there.
    
    Rianna:  Hey, you there! Come out so we can see you!
    
    ( Hiding behind the bushes, a man comes walking slowly.                       )
    Reith:  Who are you?
    
    Rianna: He’s been following us.
            Damn bastard... Underestimating us just ‘cause we’re women.
            Well I’ll show you...
    
    ( At the same time, the unknown man just collapses...                         )
    Rianna: Huh?
    
    
    ??????:   Whew, I’m alive. I feel a lot better, now.
              For a moment there, I didn’t know
              what would happen.
    
    Ladrinne: If you were hungry, you should have just said so.
    
    ??????:   It’s a dangerous world. I’d already been mistaken
              for a peeping Tom, so I didn’t think it was a good
              idea to beg for food.
    
    Ladrinne: How did you end up like this?
    
    ??????:      I’m the victim of a pickpocket. Got all my money
              stolen and didn’t eat or drink for two days.
              I thought I was gonna die.
    
    Rianna:   You’re not trying to make us feel sorry for you
              so we’ll give you money, are you?
    
    ??????:   Huh? What kind of man do you think I am?
              I’m a man who repays his debts.
    
    Rianna:   And how do you intend to do that?
    
    ??????:   With my muscular body, of course.
    
    Rianna:   Your what!?
    
    Justina:  How dare you say such things in the presence 
              of the Great Priestess?
    
    ??????:   Hold on... I didn’t mean it like that. I’m
              pretty good with a sword, ya know! To show 
              my gratitude, I’ll escort you on your journey.
              Or course, it’d be nice if you provided me with
              three square meals a day and accommodations.
    
    Rianna:   Huh? You actually expect us to trust you!?
    
    Reith:    Let’s invite him to come along!
    
    Rianna:   Reith!
    
    Reith:    Well... Calintz didn’t know me, and he still came
              to my rescue. I just want to do the same. Besides,
              he’s good with a sword. He may come in handy.
    
    ??????:   Woo! Thanks.
    
    Ladrinne: You’re right, he’d make a welcome addition.
    
    Justina:  But, Mistress Ladrinne, we know nothing
              about him...
    
    Ladrinne: Justina, you’re a priestess. 
              You should know what it means to have faith.
    
    Justina:  I see. So, you’re saying that we should just 
              accept him, even if he is a total stranger?
    
    Reith:    Justina!
              His name is Raul.
    
    Rianna:   What in the world is going on here?

    [ At the area of Lidd there is no conversation. ]
    
    ( While Reith, Justina, Rianna and Mistress Ladrinne are entering Fuget,      )
    ( behind them appears Carian and 2 Blast Worms.                               )
    
    Reith:    Why are you here...?
    
    Carian:   Finally. We’ve been waiting for you.
              In fact, we’re so tired of waiting,
              we were about to go home.
    
    Justina:  This was supposed to be a secret.
              I’m surprised you know.
    
    Carian:   It wasn’t a bad plan, but we can tell a fake
              when we see one.
              Don’t underestimate us.
    
    Ladrinne: You mean, someone couldn’t keep a secret, right?
    
    Carian:   Hahaha.
    
    Rianna:   You won’t be laughing for long.
              The real priestess is in Lester by now.
              You chose wrong.
    
    Carian:   Ahahahaha, 
              we’ll see how long that confidence lasts you...
    
    ( the fight is over is Carian is defeated or her HP falls under 20%)
    Carian:   Hmm...I see you have a new bodyguard.
    
    Raul:     Whoa, I think I may be in for more than I bargained for.
    
    Reith:    I’m sorry. It’s my fault, since I asked you to join us.
    
    Rianna:   It’s too late now for regrets.
    
    Raul:     Well, since I agreed to protect you, I’ll fulfill
              my end of the deal. Are you ready to get rowdy?
    
    Ladrinne: Stop. That’s enough.
    
    Reith:    Mistress Ladrinne?
    
    Carian:   Oh, giving up already? If you’re feeling guilty, 
              why not just keep on pretending to be a phony?
    
    Justina:  That can’t be...
    
    Ladrinne: I’m sorry, Justina.
    
    Justina:  You’re... the real Mistress Ladrinne?
              Reith! You must have known! Why didn’t you tell us?
    
    Reith:    I’m sorry.
    
    Ladrinne: I asked Reith to keep it a secret. But, there’s no need to fight
              for my sake. It’ll be fine, as long as I do as they ask.
    
    Carian:   You should have cooperated from the start.
    
    Raul:     If you agree to go with them, who knows what will happen?
    
    Ladrinne: True, but I do not wish to put your lives at risk.
    
    Raul:     M’lady, may I have your permission to handle this?
    
    Carian:   You fool... Trying to play the hero?
    
    ( With a small hand gesture, Carian summons her Familiar, which is a large,   )
    ( three-headed snake. The surprised Reith looks at the snake, but soon her    )
    ( expression changes... She’s looking at the snake rather angrily, which is   )
    ( not attacking the party at all.                                             )
    Carian:   What’s the matter? Why won’t you attack!?
    
    Raul:     *chuckle* A familiar that disobeys it’s master.
              First time I’ve seen it happen.
    
    ??????:   The Blast Worms are here, sir!
    
    ??????:   Go get ‘em, men!
    
    Raul:     So, what’s your move?
    
    Carian:   Psh! You won’t always be this lucky.
    
    Raul:     Thanks heavens. That was close.
    
    
    Agreian:  Mother, are you alright?
    
    Ladrinne: Yes, I’m fine.
              The Tears of Blood did an admirable job.
    
    Agreian:  I’m glad to hear it...
              I have much to thank them for.
    
    Justina:  General, Carian knew exactly where the real
              priestess would be...
    
    Ladrinne: As I had feared...
              There is a traitor within the Alliance.
    
    Agreian:  We are actively searching for this traitor.
              Rest assured. We will find him.
    
    Ladrinne: Thank you everyone. I am indebted to you.
    
    Justina:  Don’t mention it. We’re just glad you’re safe.
    
    Ladrinne: I should have been more mindful of the danger
              this would bring... Especially during times like
              these. 
    
    Agreian:  I will have the army guard the surrounding area.
    
    Ladrinne: I know this may be difficult for you, 
              but thank you for having faith in me.
    
    ( Reith, Justina and Rianna are standing in Fuget and silently watching       )
    ( Mistress Ladrinne, who appears to be praying. Purple-pink lights appear     )
    ( around her. The surprised Reith watches, as these lights penetrate the      )
    ( surrounding trees, water. On the ground a large magic symbol appears, with  )
    ( Mistress Ladrinne at its center. Along with the symbol, a large transparent )
    ( sphere and a smaller, yellow sphere appear, the yellow one right above her  )
    ( head. With Justina and Rianna outside the large sphere, and Reith inside,   )
    ( the priestess, with a small move, throws up the transparent sphere.         )
    ( For a few second, it floats above her and then it “breaks” to pieces, which )
    ( rather looks like pink petals. Reith hold out her palm to catch one, but it )
    ( soon disappears in her hand. They stand silently in Fuget as the petals     )
    ( keep falling down...                                                        )
    
    Rianna:   We’re done playing escorts, so let’s go back
              to Headquarters.
    
    Justina:  But, do you think the Tears of Blood
              will accept him? ...I doubt it.
    
    Reith:    I’m sure it’ll be fine It’s not like he’s a
              bad person or anything.
    
    Raul:     Heh, thanks. So, what will it take to 
              convince everyone?

    Mercenary: Everyone is waiting for you in the conference room.
    
    ( In the Conference Room)
    Eonis:   Welcome back.
             I heard what happened.
             Did you have a difficult time of it?
    
    Rianna:  We’re just glad everything turned out the way it
             did.
    
    Lehas:   ...I’ve never seen you before.
    
    Raul:    Haha, you are as beautiful as you are observant...
             My name is Raul, and I am the newest member
             of the Tears of Blood... A pleasure to meet you.
    
    Haren:   Give me a break... When did this happen?
             Who made this decision?
    
    Raul:    Why, this wonderful your lady right here.
    
    Calintz: Who are you?
    
    Raul:    You could say I’m a wandering swordsman, 
             of sorts...
    
    Rianna:  Don’t waste your breath interrogating this guy... 
             All we did was give him some food and now we 
             can’t get rid of the guy.
             He’s pretty good in a fight, so I guess it couldn’t
             hurt having him around.
    
    Maya:    ........
    
    Reith:   Raul is an honorable person.
    
    Haren:   And how do you know that?
    
    Reith:   Well... I think it’s alright to trust him.
    
    Raul:    You do realize a woman’s intuition is rarely ever
             wrong...
    
    Calintz: You probably know that we are General
             Agreian’s special mercenary group and we can’t
             afford to have any liabilities.
             If you even look at me funny, I won’t hesitate to 
             bury you.
    
    Raul:    I know who you are and you are wise not to give
             your trust so freely... But, I will prove myself
             to you on the field of battle.
    
    Calintz: ...Welcome to the Tears of Blood.
    
    
    ( Meanwhile in Epentar, in the same room, where the Blast Worm left Amila’s   )
    ( mask, Orha, Azhadi and Carian are standing before a desk, where Amila is    )
    ( sitting.                                                                    )
    Amila:  You seemed confident before you left. What happened?
    
    ( Carian kneels down)
    Carian: I’m sorry, Your Majesty. I am ashamed.
    
    Amila:  There must be some explanation.
    
    Azhadi: Yes. This may com as a surprise, 
            but Carian’s familiar ignored her commands.
    
    Amila:  This is strange, indeed. Familiar always obey their masters.
            Was there something holding it back?
    
    (Carian stands up)
    Carian: It seem that way. This is not the first time I have seen such
            an incident...
    
    Orha:   Your Majesty, we just received this information. 
            Roxy has safely arrived in Bayer.
    
    Amila:  Things did not go as planned, but it can’t be helped.
            Capturing the Great Priestess was a long shop to begin with.
            We shall proceed with a new agenda.
    
    
    ( In the same room, Amila is standing near the window, looking out...)
    ( The scene in Fuget is repeated: Reith looks at the Snake, surprised, then   )
    ( angrily. The whole scene is watched by one of the Blast Worms, who, when    )
    ( watched closely, can be the same girl, who left the mask in Epentar...      )
    Amila:  Why...? Why are you here?
    
    
    ( On the world map) 
    Neikan: ..........
    
    Carian: Does the Great Priestess have the power to
            control the familiars?
    
    Neikan: ..........
    
    Carian: Then who does...? It happened a couple of times.
            ...Don’t tell me it’s that little girl...
    
    Neikan: ..........
    
    Carian: So, it’s alright if I kill her?
            It’s just one human.
    
    Neikan: ..........
    
    Carian: Do not underestimate me.
            I have spies all over Efferia...
    
    
    ( On the world map, again)
    Carian: Eliminate her as soon as possible.
    
    Sdei:   But, the Tears of Blood Headquarters is protected
            by some kind of magical barrier.
            We have tried many times to get in, but have had
            no success.
    
    Carian: Is that so? Leave the barrier to me.
            Once inside, find the girl and kill her.
    
    Sdei:   As you wish.
    
    
    ( On the world map, but at Mt. Selton)
    Astal:  The Hero of Water is very powerful and
            she will definitely have the upper hand.
            We need to distract her.
    
    Neikan: ..........
    
    Astal:  If you fail, this will be all for nothing.
    
    Neikan: ..........
    
    Astal:  Alright. I will pay her a visit...

    ( In the Conference Room)
    Lehas:   Calintz?
    
    Calintz: What’s wrong?
    
    Lehas:   A fire beast has appeared in Lester Woods.
             I’m afraid it’s a strong one.
    
    Eonis:   I see... What about the Alliance force?
    
    Lehas:   They’ve already been defeated twice, and they’re 
             still out there hiding. But, they don’t know where
             it’ll show up next.
             If it isn’t defeated, then Lester could be in danger.
    
    Calintz: But, unless we have a way to counteract its 
             Fire Chi, then we won’t stand a chance...
    
    Chris:   Hmm... A way to negate Fire Chi... Leave it to me!
             I’ll think up something cool.
             I need a concentrated source of Ice Chi...

    Calintz: Is it around here? That thing you’re looking for
             with a lot of Ice Chi?
    
    Eonis:   I think so. Let’s try Detect Mode.
    
    
    ( approaching the blue crystal looking thingy...)
    Eonis:   This must be it... I sense a lot of Ice Chi.
    
    Calintz: Alright, back to Headquarters.

    *** flashback ***
    
    Hugo is running, behind him, not far way is Mano. Suddenly Hugo stops and turns
    back, and sees, that Mano stopped.
    
    Hugo: What’s wrong?
    
    Mano: Go on without me. I have to go back.
    
    Hugo: Are you crazy? Do you wanna get yourself killed?
    
    Mano: It’s my fault! Everything is my fault...
          I can’t run away like this!
    
    Hugo: Mano!
    
    *** End of flashback ***
    
    
    Chris:   See how quickly I finished it? I call it the 
             “Glacier Maker”. Aren’t you impressed?
             Isn’t that a good name? I surprised even myself
             with this one!

    ( Walking around in the forest, the party end up near a large, red monster.   )
    Calintz: So, you’re cause of all the trouble.
    
    [NOTE: if you meet with the monster before you have the Glacier Maker, you    ]
    [ won’t be able to cause any damage to the monster, and after a few turns,    ]

    ( In the Conference Room)
    Lehas:   Good work.
    
    Chris:   I present to you the Glacier Maker. It’s
             a masterpiece inspired by your icy cold stare...
             Will you accept it?
    
    Lehas:   ..........
             It doesn’t look very useful, but I’ll keep it
             just in case.
    
    Chris:   ..........
    
    |                         Agreian is calling you.                             |
    
    ( at the communication sphere)
    Calintz: What’s wrong?
    
    Agreian: We know where the Water Shard can be
             acquired...
    
    Calintz: How?
    
    Agreian: I read through some old documents and pieced
             together the information.
             Apparently, the Hero of Water quit being
             the principal of a school of magic and is living
             secretly on a floating island.
    
    Calintz: A floating island... Then it’s in Bayer?
    
    Agreian: You’re looking for Involk Castle, but the exact
             location of which is unknown.
             I am certain that the mage has managed to
             conceal the way to the castle by some means...
    
    Calintz: I guess the only way it to go look...
             I’ll head to Bayer.
    
    Agreian: You should to Bayrux first to see what kind
             of information you can get.
    
    
    Calintz: Let’s continue this conversation in my office.
    
    ( At Calintz’s office)
    Eonis:   There’s really no set way to reach Involk Castle.
             The mages put up magic barriers to prevent
             outsiders from getting in, and they’re always
             changing their defenses.
    
    Haren:   We need to get more information about this place.
    
    Chris:   For once, I agree with the brute. We’re just gonna
             get a headache if we stand here and yap about it...
    
    Calintz: Then let’s leave now.
    
    Azel:    Wait a sec...
    
    Haren:   What now?
    
    Azel:    Did you know today is the Captain’s birthday?
             Happy birthday!
    
    Haren:   Shut up! Seriously, sometimes I wonder
             about you, Azel. We’re mercenaries, we don’t do
             birthdays.
    
    Azel:    Lighten up, Haren...
    
    Eonis:   I hate to say it, but you can be really annoying
             sometimes. Anyway, happy birthday, Calintz.
    
    Chris:   Oh dang... A birthday! We gotta tell Reith.
             We’re gonna have ourselves a partay.
    
    Calintz: We are not going to have a “partay” and we are 
             not going to tell Reith.
    
    Chris:   Oooh, yes we are! Come on, man. Live a little!
    
    Calintz: We don’t have time for this...
    
    Chris:   Sure we do! Even mercs like us gotta get down
             and shake out groove thangs once in a while...
    
    Calintz: ..........
    
    
    ( While Calintz and the others are trying to leave the Headquarters, just     )
    ( after the stairs...                                                         )
    Lehas:   Where are you going?
    
    Calintz: On our mission.
    
    Lehas:   The one you mentioned before? ...Is it that important?
    
    Haren:   Isn’t it obvious?
    
    Eonis:   I’m sorry, but it really is urgent.
             If it’s not too much to ask, can we talk later?
    
    ( Lehas doesn’t say a word, she is just looking before herself.)
    Chris:   Wait, isn’t today Calintz’s birthday?
             You didn’t plan something, did you?
             If so, then we can stay. We’ll celebrate!
    
    Haren:   Huh? You must be joking!
             Lehas would never think of something like that.
             The day she plans a party is the day when hell freezes over.
    
    Lehas:   You’re right. Mercenaries don’t have time to celebrate.
             You never know when it might be your turn to die...
    
    ( Lehas angrily goes away.)
    Haren:   She’s always sayin’ things like that. I don’t think she’s
             got a clue what it really means to be a mercenary. 
    
    Calintz: That’s enough, Haren.
    
    Haren:   You’re taking her side? She doesn’t know what the 
             hell she’s talking about. She’s just being a bitch.
    
    Eonis:   Hold on... Have you considered how she might be feeling?
    
    Haren:   So, you’re on her side, too?
    
    Calintz: Enough. We don’t have time for bickering.
    
    ( Behind a pillar, whole conversation was overheard by Lehas.)
    
    ( Right after leaving the Headquarters)
    Chris:   Dad!
             What are you doing here?
    
    Rostin:  I just finished some business, and was about to
             go home.
             How ‘bout you Are you on another mission?
    
    Chris:   Yeah, we’re in a hurry.
    
    Rostin:  I see. Then, why don’t you hop aboard Rusty?
    
    Chris:   Wait... What’s the catch? You’re never this nice.
    
    Rostin:  Hey! Is that how you talk to your father, 
             you little ingrate!
    
    Calintz: Thanks for the offer.
             We’ll definitely take you up on it.
    
    Rostin:  Where are we headed.
    
    Calintz: Bayer...
    
    Rostin:  Then, let’s go.

    Calintz: It’s no use... All of our attacks are being absorbed.
             It is because the power of the water? If we could
             only freeze it.
    
    Chris:   Hey, remember that thing I created
             - the Glacier Maker? Think that would 
             come in handy?
    
    Calintz: Let’s get in touch with Lehas.
    
    ( At the Communication sphere)
    Azel:    She’s not responding...!
    
    |                             Smidt is calling you.                           |
    
    Smidt:   Ca...Calintz?
    
    Calintz: What happened!?
    
    Smidt:   Hu-hurry up! The Headquarters... is under attack...
             by the Yason!
    
    Calintz: That can’t be! What about the magical barrier?
    
    Smidt:   They somehow figured out how to get past it...
             Lehas is fighting now... Many are wounded...
             Hurry, we can’t hold out much...
    
    Calintz: We’re on out way!

    ( A sword kills a Tears of Blood soldier, who after staggering collapses, and )
    ( shortly dies. It turns out that the sword is held by a Blast Worm.          )
    ( The Blast Worm walks away revealing Lehas, who is standing with a sword in  )
    ( her hand. In front of her IS Sdei standing...                               )
    Lehas: But... How did you get through the maze?
    
    Sdei:  Well, if you can see through the illusion, it’s simple.
    
    Lehas: Why are you here?
    
    Sdei:  There’s a girl named Reith here, correct?
           I’d like to speak with her.
    
    Lehas: You’re mistaken.
    
    Sdei:  I beg to differ. If you’re lying, you’ll regret it.
    
    Lehas: Why do you want with her?
    
    Sdei:  Oh, I though you looked familiar... What good are you
           to a group of mercenaries if you’re unable to fight?
    
    Lehas: What?
    
    ( Sdei pulls out a longsword)
    Lehas: Clavehander!
    
    Sdei:  Oh, is that the name of this sword?
           Then surely you remember... the Battle of Hargen?
    
    Lehas: It can’t be... You’re the Butcher of Hargen!
    
    Sdei:  “Butcher” is such a harsh word.
           Besides, it was you humans who invaded out territory.
    
    Lehas: You killed General Shiven!
           That day, I vowed to avenge his death...
    
    Sdei:  I thought I crippled you so that you would never pick up
           a sword again. But, apparently, you’re stronger than I thought.
           What must I do this time? Cut off a leg?
    
    Lehas: Just try... You’ll regret it.
    
    ( Lehas runs to attack Sdei, but he disappears from where he was standing.    )
    ( She’s looking left and right to find the Yason, when Sdei suddenly appears  )
    ( right behind her and strikes down at her...                                 )
    
    ( Azel and Calintz arrive running back at the Headquarters, when they notice  )
    ( all the dead bodies lying around.                                           )
    Azel:    Oh my god... Lehas! 
    
    ( They see the injured Lehas lying on the ground, and standing right next to  )
    ( her is Sdei.                                                                )
    Lehas:   Stay away... He’s too strong...
    
    Haren:   Who the hell’re you!?
    
    Sdei:    You’re acquaintances of Reith, right? Where is she?
    
    Calintz: Are you... a Yason?
    
    Sdei:    Well, kind of.
    
    Calintz: Why are you looking or Reith?
    
    Sdei:    It’s none of your business.
    
    Calintz: You bastard!
    
    ( The fight with Sdei and the Blast Worms is over if his HP falls under 50%)
    Sdei:    Hmph... This isn’t the right time...
             I’ll wait for a better opportunity.
    
    ( Chris, Maya and Azel are all around Lehas, who is lying on the ground,      )
    ( while she is held by Calintz. Maya is trying to use healing magic on her... )
    Calintz: Lehas, are you alright? Hold on!
    
    Lehas:   Calintz... I’m sorry... I couldn’t... protect our base... 
    
    ( Maya stops with the healing, and shakes her head sadly...                   )
    Chris:   Dammit...
    
    Calintz: What are you saying? You did well.
    
    Lehas:   Take... Clavehander...
    
    Calintz: Clavehander?
    
    ( They look at the longsword which Sdei used to strike down Lehas)
    Lehas:   ... to our comrades’... grave...
    
    Calintz: Okay, I promise.
    
    Lehas:   Thank you... I’m glad... I got to see you all... in the end...
    
    Azel:    Lehas, don’t say that... Hold on!
    
    Lehas:   It’s a bit late, but... happy... birthday...
    
    Calintz: Lehas...
    
    
    
    
    ( Chris, Azel are standing in the Conference Room, watching all the prepared  )
    ( food that is on the large table. Calintz is with them, too, although he’s   )
    ( not really concerned about anything, he’s just standing, with closed        )
    ( eyes, and closed fists.                                                     )
    ( Suddenly the door opens, and Reith runs in...                               )
    Reith:   Calintz! What happened!?
    
    Calintz: You... Who the hell ARE you?
    
    Reith:   Calintz?
    
    Calintz: Why are the Yason so desperate to find you?
             You don’t remember anything at all?
             Answer me, Reith? Who are you really?
    
    Azel:    Captain...
    
    Reith:   I’m sorry.
    
    ( Reith runs out of the room with Calintz looking angrily after her.          )
    Justina: Will you please explain to me what’s happened?
    
    
    
    Justina: I understand. It’s best of Reith stays away from here
             for a while. I’ll take her to the Great Temple.
    
    Azel:    I’m sorry. It’s not your fault. These are unusual circumstances.

             was at Mirna. I was surprised because I didn’t
             know she could use a sword.
    
    Calintz: ...Lehas was at Mirna?
    
    Agreian: She didn’t tell you? She came with the group
             that defended Mirna in your place.
             When I became angry, she defended you and
             insisted that it wasn’t your fault.

             would be so bold as to attack your headquarters.

    Raul:    Hmmmm...
    
    Rianna:  Do you know something?
    
    Raul:    Well...
    
    Rianna:  If you know something, spit it out already.
             Otherwise just shut up!
             Umm, I wouldn’t know. I haven’t been around
             everywhere and plus I don’t know the area.
    
    Justina: Maybe we should go to the Pnosen Library.
             I’m sure we’ll be able to find some information
             on this castle Reith is talking about.
    
    
    Raul:    At least someone around here has some common
             sense.
    
    Rianna:  That was that? If you got something to say,
             say it in my face...
    
    Reith:   Let’s go then. I’d go anywhere to learn the
             significance of this castle.
    
    Rianna:  How do you suppose we get there?
             The Pnosen Library is in the middle of a desert.
    
    Reith:   Chris was saying his dad has an airship...
    
    Justina: I think you’re right. We’d have to go to Efor,
             but maybe he could take us there for a 
             reasonable price.
    
    Rianna:  So, is that the plan?
    
    Justina: Yes, we should let Lehas know.
    
    ( Searching for Lehas, they enter the Conference Room, where, to their        )
    ( surprise the table is full of fresh, steaming food.                         )
    Rianna:  Whoa! This is awesome!
    
    Reith:   Did you make all this Lehas?
    
    Lehas:   Um, yeah... It’s Calintz’s birthday.
    
    Reith:   What? It’s his birthday? ...I didn’t know.
    
    Raul:    Mmmm, smells good.
             Not only are you beautiful, but you can also cook.
    
    Lehas:   It was nothing, really...
    
    Reith:   Then, I’ll go get Calintz!
    
    Lehas:   Um, um... That’s okay...
    
    Reith:   You don’t want me to?
    
    Rianna:  Why don’t you get him Lehas?
             We’ll stay here and surprise him.
    
    ( Lehas is just standing, staring in front of her, not saying a word)
    Rianna:  What are you waiting for?
    
    Lehas:   Okay...
    
    ( Lehas leaves the Conference room.)
    Justina: I guess even Lehas has a softer side, huh?
    
    ( Rianna walks to the table.)
    Rianna:  It looks delicious!
    
    Reith:   Stop!
    
    Rianna:  I-I just want a little taste.
    
    Reith:   No, Calintz should be first.
    
    Rianna:  Alright, alright, I got it. But aren’t you a little jealous? 
             It seems like Lehas likes Calintz.
    
    Reith:   Really? That’s great!
    
    Rianna:  Geez, you’re just like a little kid.
    
    ( Lehas arrives, alone.)
    Reith:   Where’s Calintz?
    
    Lehas:   He left. He said he has an urgent mission.
    
    Reith:   What!? But, we had everything waiting for him.
    
    Lehas:   It’s good that he’s busy.
             We need money to keep this place running.
             C’mon, everyone. Let’s eat. I wouldn’t want this to go to waste.
    
    Reith:   Hey, Lehas... Why don’t we just wait till he gets back?
    
    Lehas:   I’m not really hungry, so that’s fine with me.
             But, don’t let this stop the rest of you from eating.
             It’d be a shame to have to throw all this away.
    
    ( Lehas, looking sad and the same time angry, leaves them)
    Reith:   She seems angry...
    
    Rianna:  Do you blame her?
             She spent all that time preparing this,
             and he didn’t even come. That’s pretty rude.

    Reith:   Oh, no one is here. I wonder where Rostin went.
    
    Rianna:  Maybe he stepped out for a bit...
    
    Raul:    It would be too much trouble to go looking for
             him. We should just wait here.
    
    
    
    Reith:   ...He’s still not back. I wonder what happened...
    
    Rianna:  It seems like someone took a flight ahead of us.
             We should go.
    
    Reith:   But, the Pnosen Library...
    
    Raul:    There is another way, but it’s definitely not
             the traveler-friendly route...
    
    Justina: I don’t like the sound of it... How then?
    
    Raul:    We can get to the Entress Desert from Remie.
    
    Reith:   Really? Is there really a way?
    
    Justina: How do you know this?
    
    Raul:    It’s pretty common knowledge.
             Trust me, I know what I’m doing.
             I’ve been all over Efferia.

            Let’s ask around.
    
    ( Speaking with the old man, standing near the way they tried to leave Remie )
    Old man: With the weather like it is today, you won’t be
             able to cross the desert.
             But, there is a way...
             It calms the desert winds using Wind Chi.
             I’ll sell you one for 3,000 Sid... You want it?
    
    - No thanks.

    |tribulations of our great ancestors are completely                           |

    |History of the War – “In early stages of the war,                            |
    |humans held many advantages over the Yason.                                  |
    |The greatest advantage, however, was the                                     |
    |knowledge of battlefield tactics, specifically, the art                      |
    |of engaging an enemy in large numbers.”                                      |

    |“Due to their physical superiority, a Yason soldier                          |
    |had dominance over a human in a one-on-one                                   |
    |fight. However, a common battlefield tactic is to                            |
    |offset this weakness by greatly increasing the                               |

    |“The Garute army, strengthened by their                                      |
    |dedication to martial arts, easily forced the Yason                          |

    Reith:     This is Reith. What’s wrong?
    
    Mercenary: The... Head... quarters...
    
    Reith:     What was that? I can’t hear you.
    
    Mercenary: Please... come... quickly...
    
    Reith:     Something’s not right...
               I’m on my way!

    ( Reith, Justina, Rianna and Raul arrive at the Headquarters running.         )
    ( They look at all the dead soldiers everywhere...                            )
    Rianna:  What happened here...?
    
    Justina: It looks like there was an attack.
    
    Reith:   Where’s Calintz...?
    
    (Reith starts running towards the building of the Headquarters.)
    Raul:    We should follow.
    
    
    ( In the building of the Headquarters, after entering the Conference room)
    
    ( Chris, Azel are standing in the Conference Room, watching all the prepared  )
    ( food that is on the large table. Calintz is with them, too, although he’s   )
    ( not really concerned about the anything, he’s just standing, with closed    )
    ( eyes, and closed fists.                                                     )
    ( Suddenly the door opens, and Reith runs in...                               )
    Reith:   Calintz! What happened!?
    
    Calintz: You... Who the hell ARE you?
    
    Reith:   Calintz?
    
    Calintz: Why are the Yason so desperate to find you?
             You don’t remember anything at all?
             Answer me, Reith? Who are you really?
    
    Azel:    Captain...
    
    Reith:   I’m sorry.

    ( Rianna is watching from a distance Reith, who is sitting on the grass, just )
    ( staring in front of her, looking very miserable.                            )
    
    Rianna:  Reith...
    
    ( Reith turns around, around her are Justina, Raul and Rianna standing.       )
    Reith:   Is it because of me...?
             Am I the reason this place was attacked?
    
    Rianna:  It’s not your fault. Calintz is jumping to
             conclusions.
    
    Reith:   No... He’s right. I don’t know why, but...
             the Yason are searching for me. They want to
             capture me...
    
    Raul:    The Yason are after you?
    
    ( Rianna nods with her head to Raul’s question.                               )
    Justina: Reith, it’s even more important now that
             you get your memory back.
             Come with me to the Great Temple. 
             It’s better if you stayed away from here for a while.
    
    Rianna:  Why is that, Justina?
    
    Justina: Lehas... is dead.
    
    ( Reith suddenly turns her head to Justina, looking frightened.               )
    Reith:   Lehas...? It’s all my fault.
    
    Raul:    Don’t think that way, Reith.
    
    ( He holds out his hand toward Reith, as he’s waiting for something.          )
    Raul:    It’s not your fault.
    
    ( After a few moments, Reith puts her hand into Raul’s hand.                  )
    
    
    
    ( As Reith tries to leave Fuget...                                            )
    Sdei:    So, we meet again.
    
    ( Sdei is walking towards Reith...                                            )
    Reith:   Sdei! It’s been a while.
    
    ( Sdei arrives right before Reith and makes a strange move with his hand,     )
    ( like he was stabbing Reith...                                               )
    Reith:   Sdei...?
    
    ( Reith collapses, revealing that Sdei is holding a large knife in his hand.  )
    Justina: Reith!
    
    Reith:   Why...? Why, Sdei?
    
    Sdei:    Whaddaya mean, why? I’m just following orders.
             If you hadn’t saved me from those soldiers, 
             I would’ve been executed... and Lehas would 
             still be alive.
    
    Rianna:  You bastard... You’re the one who killed her!?
    
    Reith:   So... it is my fault after all...
    
    Sdei:    Yes. You are to blame. This is a direct result of 
             your naivety. How does it feel to be rewarded
             this way for your kindness?
    
    Raul:    So, you’re a Yason? Wait... A half Yason?
    
    Sdei:    Since I don’t have a Vindi, I look exactly like
             a human.
    
    Raul:    What do you want with Reith?
    
    Sdei:    I was asked to capture her, or if necessary,
             kill her.
    
    ( after beating Sdei)
    Raul:    Who sent you?
    
    Sdei:    What kind of fool do think I am?
             Taking the young lady’s life is my
             only concern here.
    
    
    ( on the world map)
    Justina: Let’s hurry and get to Amabat.

    ( In the Great Temple, in Mistress Ladrinne’s room...)
    Ladrinne: Oh my, what a horrible turn of events...
    
    Justina:  Mistress Ladrinne, we must treat Reith.
    
    Ladrinne: Yes. We will start right away.
    
    
    ( In the same room, where she was first treated, Reith suddenly wakes up.     )
    Rianna: Thanks god... You’re finally awake.
    
    Reith:  Rianna...
    
    Rianna: Don’t worry, You’ve already been treated.
            The pain should be gone now.
    
    ( Reith doesn’t say a word, she is just sitting, staring... )
    Rianna: Reith?
    
    ( Reith starts crying...)
    Reith:  *sob*
    
    Rianna: It’s okay... Just cry it all out...
    
    
    Rianna: It’s not such a terrible thing to help a Yason.
            It took more courage to do that than to look the
            other way.
            Besides, you’re not the only one who saved him.
            Justina and I were there, too. There’s no reason
            for you to take all the blame.
    
    Reith:  *nod*
    
    Rianna: You know what else?
    
    Reith:  What?
    
    Rianna: Remember how I told you my husbands wanders
            around doing research? ...That was a lie.
    
    Reith:  Huh?
    
    Rianna: To tell you the truth, after he disappeared,
            I found a letter. It said his feeling had faded
            and we were better off apart.
    
    Reith:  Rianna...
    
    Reith:  But, I’m not satisfied with that explanation.
            That’s why I’m looking for him. I want to
            confront him, and hear the whole story. 
            I don’t know why it matters so much to me...
    
    Reith:  I didn’t realize you were going through all that.
    
    Rianna: Yeah. Not to mention, he’s a Yason.
    
    Reith:  Huh?
    
    Rianna: He has a Vindi. I knew the moment I saw it.
            But, I think he might only be half Yason.
            Anyway, it didn’t change the way I felt about him.
            I don’t think it really matters what race someone is.
            Does that sound corny to you?
    
    Reith:  Not at all. Thanks for sharing it with me.
            I fell a lot better, now.
            But, you should cheer up, Rianna!

    Azhadi: I didn’t think Sdei would fall...
            The Tears of Blood are stronger than we thought.
    
    Carian: Since this is the way it turned out, we should
            inform him... We need to keep a low profile,
            so we’ll need him to investigated this for us.
    
    Azhadi: If there’s no other way...
            I don’t like taking orders from that guy.
    
    Carian: But, he serves his purpose in the grand scheme
            of things...

    Calintz: The search for the Water Shard will continue
             as planned. It is absolutely critical that we
             acquire it. Lehas’s death will not be in vain!
    
    Haren:   I’m with you, Calintz! The Yason will pay for 
             what they’ve done...

             painful this becomes...

    ( At the communication sphere)
    Agreian: It seems like you’ve calmed down a little.
    
    Calintz: Yes... We held a funeral for Lehas, but she
             deserved better... I’m on my way now to look
             for the Water Shard.
    
    Agreian: You know that Reith is here, right?
    
    Calintz: ...Oh.
    
    Agreian: She was injured when the Yason attacked...
    
    Calintz: What!?
    
    Agreian: Don’t worry, my mother has treated her and
             she is doing well.
    
    Calintz: They went after Reith again? But, I thought
             they wanted to capture her without harming her.
    
    Agreian: Maybe their plans have changed or maybe
             someone else is after her...
    
    Calintz: ...How is he doing?
    
    Agreian: It seems that you are still care about her ever though
             you didn’t stop her after she ran off...
    
    Calintz: I said I’d be the one responsible for her until
             she gets her memory back.
    
    Agreian: She’s doing fine. She’s been traveling around 
             Efferia to get her memory back.
    
    Calintz: I see... As long as she’s safe, it’s fine.
             We’re going to the floating castle.
    
    Agreian: Then I’ll have the Azure Wings go to your
             headquarters. Take that to get there.
    
    Calintz: Thanks, Hugo.
    
    Agreian: You’re welcome.
    
    ( Before the building...)
    Pilot: I’m the pilot of the Azure Wings. General Agreian
           sent orders to transport you to Bayrux.
    
    Chris: Wow, it sure is nice having friends in high
           places... Now, we can go cruisin’ in the luxurious
           Azure Wings for free!
    
    Haren: Yeah, and it’s a helluva lot safer than that 
           bucket of bolts, Rusty 17. It’d be worth it,
           even if we had to pay for it.
    
    Chris: What’d say!? Rusty 28’s flown through
           searing desert heat and biting polar winds! 
           Azure Wings don’t hold a candle to her.
    
    Azel:  Alright, calm down. Let’s just enjoy our trip
           to the floating castle.

             Even we had a difficult time.

             be deceiving... You fools.

    Chris:   No freaking way! She’s just a little kid!
    
    Elaine:  It’s because of the Water Shard, which radiates
             tremendous Chi. It has blessed me with eternal
             youth and given me the power to heal.
    
    Calintz: The Heroes sealed the Light of Salvation...
             Why...?
    
    Elaine:  To protect it. The best way to keep it from
             being stolen by the Yason is to hide it.
             You’re too young to know how sly they can really be.
    
    
             Do you intend to search for the Light of Salvation?
             Do you realize how dangerous it is?
             Don’t do something stupid like uniting all of the shards.
    
             They’re evil. They have minds of their own, and they can
             corrupt those around them. Possessing even one shard without
             knowing how to use it can be very dangerous... Ugh...
    
    ( At this moment the conversation is interrupted by a dagger, which lands in  )
    ( Elaine. From behind one of the pillars Astal walks out, the same person who )
    ( tried to kill Calintz in Amabat.                                            )
    Elaine:  *gasp* When did you...!?
    
    Astal:   I’m sorry...
             How rude of me to attack when your guard was down.
    
    Haren:   Dammit... You again!
    
    Astal:   Yes, we meet again. It is no mere coincidence, either.
             Fate has intertwined our paths.
    
    Calintz: You... You can’t take that!
    
    Astal:   Hmhp. Isn’t it ironic?
             ...Unable to move a muscle because of this so called hero.
             Well then... Rest peacefully, m’lady.
    
    ( Astal, after getting the Water Shard, runs away.)
    Elaine:  Zekart...
    
    Azel:    Hey, I can move again.
    
    ( Calintz runs to Elaine, who is lying on the ground.)
    Calintz: Maya, heal her after I pull out the dagger.
    
    ( Maya nods.)
    Elaine:  It’s no use... The dagger was poisoned...
             It’s already... spread throughout my body...
             The Dark Yason... got their revenge... on Behru and Aria...
             and now... me... Ugh...
    
    
    ( Reith and Rianna arrive running at the moment, when Calintz holds up the   )
    ( dagger he pulled out from Elaine.                                          )

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Reith:   I’ll get my memory back no matter what it takes.
             ( Calintz... Where are you? Are you safe?
             I wonder if anyone’s seen the Tears of Blood.)
    
    ( The party will not leave Amabat until they speak with General Agreian.      )
    ( After entering his office, Reith looks around, but he’s not there.          )
    Reith:   Where is he? I guess I’ll wait a bit.
    
    ( After waiting a bit, Reith notices a shining bracelet on Agreian’s table.   )
    Reith:   What a beautiful bracelet...
    
    ( Just beside the bracelet, there is a letter...)
    Reith:   What’s this...?
    
    Agreian: Reith? What are you doing here?
    
    Reith:   Oh, I was waiting.
    
    Agreian: For me?
    
    Reith:   Yes, I wanted to know how Calintz is doing.
    
    Agreian: Ah, I see. Calintz is doing fine.
             And what about you? Are you alright?
    
    Reith:   Yes, thanks to the Great Priestess.
    
    Agreian: I see. That’s good.
    
    ( After leaving General Agreian’s office.)
    Reith:   ( That was the first time I’ve seen those letters...
             But, I felt like I could read them...)
             ( What am I thinking? I don’t have time for this, 
             now. I need to get to Bayer so I can get my
             memory back!)
             ( I’m sure Rostin will help me, with Rusty 28.)
             ( But, I need to get to Efor first.)
    
    ( On the world map)
    Reith:   Rianna, can we go to Efor to see Rostin...?
    
    Rianna:  Sure, why not?

    ( At Rostin’s house)
    Rostin: Lemme guess...
            You girls want a ride on Rusty 28, am I right?
    
    Reith:  Yup. We’re trying to get to the floating castle.
    
    Rostin: It has a barrier around it, you know, so we can’t 
            land there. But, I can take you to Bayrux, 
            which is pretty darn close.
            Rusty’s been busy, lately. Just the other day, 
            those bloody tear guys wanted a lift, too.
            She took a bit of damage, but now I have her 
            purring like a kitten again.
            So, are you ready to go?

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    ( While arriving at Bayrux, Rianna is walking behind the others. She stops    )
    ( for a few seconds and looks towards a large boulder, as she’s feeling that  )
    ( someone’s there. After standing there a few seconds she shakes her head and )
    ( runs after the others. Not long after this, Astal comes out from behind     )
    ( the very same boulder, that Rianna was looking at...                        )
    
    ( On the Island of Void, on the last island is Roxy waiting.                  )
    Reith:   You again...!
    
    Roxy:    Funny to see you here.
    
    Justina: That’s our line.
    
    Roxy:    How ‘bout we settle in battle?
    
    Raul:    Why do we keep running into The Four Warriors?
    
    Rianna:  Don’t ask me.
    
    ( During the fight with Roxy, when her HP reached 50%...                      )
    Roxy:    *chuckle* You’re pretty strong, now. But, are you
             strong enough to defeat Steelheart?
    
    ( Roxy summons Steelheart, who arrives, ready to attack. Raul draws his sword.)
    Roxy:    Attack them.
    
    ( Reith is looking at Steelheart, the same way she did with Carian’s Familiar )
    ( as if she’s trying to force it not to attack. Whatever she’s doing seems to )
    ( work, because Steelheart is not moving.                                     )
    Roxy:    What’s wrong? What are you afraid of?
    
    ( Steelheart is stomping with his legs, unable to decide what’s he got to do: )
    ( attack according to Roxy’s orders or not.                                   )
    Roxy:    Obey your master.
             If you don’t... you’ll be punished.
    
    ( Steelheart starts moving towards the party...)
    ( The fight is over if Steelheart’s HP falls under 50%...                     )
    Rianna:  Damn... It’s much too strong for us.
    
    Raul:    It can’t be helped...
    
    ( Raul, with a really cool looking technique, which he hasn’t used earlier,   )
    ( in a matter of seconds finishes off Steelheart...                           )
    Roxy:    What the...!?
    
    Reith:   Raul?
    
    Roxy:    You defeated Steelheart... How...?
    
    Raul:    Hey, don’t just stand there; move.
             The fight’s not over yet.
    
    Justina: I’m ready!
    
    ( After finishing Roxy...)
    Roxy:    Psh... We’ll call it quits, for today. But, next time
             you won’t get off so easily.
    
    Justina: Just who are you?
    
    Raul:    *chuckle*
             Just a wanderer who has a little sword skill.
    
    Rianna:  Just a wanderer?
    
    Raul:    What more do you want to know?
    
    Justina: Who you really are.
    
    Raul:    I’m just a wanderer.
             But... I learned a special sword skill.
             It’s too much for me, so I only use it when 
             I’m really in danger. As you can see my body
             can’t take it.
    
    ( The girls are just standing, looking at him, without saying a word.         )
    Raul:    Do you doubt my intensions? 
    
    Reith:   Oh no! Of course not.
    
    Raul:    Isn’t it more of a mystery that the familiar 
             refused to attack us?
    
    Reith:   Yeah, that’s true.
    
    ( Not far from them, looking down, is Astal standing, watching them...        )

    ( Arriving before the small building, the center of the castle, Reith notices )
    ( the image of Amila standing there. Within the image, there is a glowing     )
    ( sphere, just like it was in Fuget. 
    Elaine: Don’t make me laugh. That’s utterly ridiculous.
    
    Amila:  Then we have nothing more to discuss.
    
    ( Black and white pictures of a totally new place, they haven’t been before - )
    ( that the memory Reith gets back this time. She also gets a small rock, but  )
    ( it doesn’t look like the other one she got in Fuget.                        )
    Justina: Are you alright, Reith?
    
    Raul:    What’s happening to her?
    
    Justina: She’s trying to get her memory back.
             We don’t really understand how...
             But, every time she does this, she seems to get
             a piece of it back.

    Reith:   Calintz... Why...?
    
    Raul:    If you didn’t kill her, then how do you explain
             the dagger? Why are you here to begin with?
    
    Calintz: Not for the same reason as you.
    
    Reith:   Well, we’re here to get my memory back.

    Eonis:   You knew she was one of The Eight Heroes?

             and now... me...
    
    *** End of flashback ***
    
    Calintz: The Dark Yason...
    
    
    ( In Mistress Ladrinne’s room, General Agreian and Mistress Ladrinne are      )
    ( talking about...                                                            )
    Agreian:  Calintz is a loyal subordinate. It’s true that he’s 
              stirred up trouble within the Alliance army,
              but he would never do something so outrageous.
              I believe he’s somehow gotten himself into
              the middle of something.
    
    Ladrinne: I agree. I believe he’s telling the truth.
    
    
    *** Flashback ***
    Ladrinne: Justina, I realize that Elaine’s death must have
              been shocking to you, but don’t you think that
              arresting Calintz was a bit extreme?
    
    Justina:  I understand. I’m prepared to face the
              consequences, Mistress, no matter what you
              decide. However...
    
    Ladrinne: What is it?
    
    Justina:  I thought that if I didn’t do something, then
              they’d never reveal the reason they were there.
              But, perhaps Calintz will confide in you,
              Great Priestess.
              I heard that Mistress Elaine was practically
              immortal.
              I doubt that the Tears of Blood have
              had the power to kill her. It’s more likely that
              they were set up.
    
    Ladrinne: But, Calintz didn’t say anything, except that he’d accept
              whatever decision we make...
              And we can’t hold him captive based on that.
              Like you said, there’s probably some other
              explanation. Justina, go with the Tears of Blood
              and watch over him.
              Calintz is like a son to me, so try to keep him
              out of harm’s way as you would with Agreian.
    
    Justina:  I understand.
    
    Reith:    Mistress Ladrinne?
    
    *** End of flashback ***
    
    Reith:    Mistress Ladrinne?
    
    Ladrinne: Reith? How long have you been here?
    
    Reith:    Not long. I said your name but...
    
    Ladrinne: Oh, I’m sorry. I was deep in thought.
    
    Reith:    Oh... I wanted to talk to you about Calintz...
    
    Ladrinne: You don’t need to worry about him. 
              It seems that it was all a misunderstanding.
              He’ll be set free.
    
    Reith:    Really? Thank you so much!
    
    ( Reith, happy with the news, leaves General Agreian and Mistress Ladrinne.   )
    Agreian:  Thank you, Mother.
    
    Ladrinne: No need to thank me. I didn’t plan to hold him
              much longer. I only wish that he’d tell us why
              he was there. Do you know, Agreian?
    
    Agreian:  No, I haven’t got a clue. He told me nothing.
    
    Ladrinne: I feel like I’m missing something, and it worries
              me. I just want Calintz to be happy...
    
    
    ( In the prison)
    Reith:   Calintz.
    
    Calintz: Why... are you here?
    
    Reith:   I spoke to the Great Priestess and she said to set
             you free since you didn’t commit any crimes. 
             General Agreian convinces her.
    
    Calintz: I see, Hugo...
    
    Reith:   Are you alright? Are you hurt?
    
    Calintz: I’m fine. They didn’t treat me badly.
    
    Reith:   I see... I’m glad.
    
    Calintz: I heard that you were hurt by the Yason when
             they attacked. 
    
    Reith:   Oh... I’m doing fine thanks to Mistress Ladrinne.
    
    Calintz: What about your memory? 
             Did you get it back?
    
    Reith:   Yes, but I haven’t had the chance to tell you... 
             You’ve been so busy. But, when I went to Fuget, 
             I remembered something...
             ...and then we went to the floating castle. 
             They’re both so far away from each other,
             but we managed.
    
    Calintz: Did you find out anything about yourself?
    
    Reith:   No, not yet. But, I feel like I’m almost there.
             Then... you wouldn’t have to look after me
             anymore.
    
    
    
    Reith:   Do you know anything about Fuget...?
    
    Calintz: ...Yeah. Why do you ask?
    
    Reith:   I saw it in my memories.
             There were people living there a long time ago, 
             yes? I heard it was your home...
    
    Calintz: Yes, there was a large dojo and they took
             in children who had nowhere to go...
             They taught us how to fight.
    
    Reith:   I see... Do you think we met each other there?
    
    Calintz: It’s certainly a possibility... But, there were many 
             kids around my age and it was a long time ago...
    
    Reith:   I’m thinking of going back. Maybe this time I
             might remember things more clearly.
    
    Calintz: It’s not the safest place to be... I’ll go with you.
    
    Reith:   I’ll be fine. I have Rianna and Justina with me...
    
    Calintz: Just follow me.
    
    Reith:   Huh? We don’t have to go this second...

    Calintz: Fuget is inside this forest.
    
    Reith:   I thought so... I’ve seen this place before.
             I remember it well.
    
    ( Near the entrance of the destroyed Fuget is the image of the little girl    )
    ( who taught Mano how to fight. Going near her...                             )
    
    *** Flashback ***
    Mano: See? I improved, right?
    
    Girl: That’s nothing to brag about. 
          You’ve still got a lot to learn.
    
    *** End of flashback ***
    
    Reith:   Mano...
    
    Calintz: Hmm? Did you say something?
    
    Reith:   Oh, it’s nothing.
    
    Calintz: Are you alright? You look dazed.
    
    Reith:   I’m fine. When I remember things, all these 
             imaged flow into my head. I might be out of it 
             for a bit, but I’m fine.
    
    Calintz: And, what did you see?
    
    Reith:   I... I say myself when I was young. 
             It wasn’t anything important.
             Just a random memory, that’s all...
             We should hurry and get back. 
             Everyone might be word because we just left
             without telling anyone.

    ( Reith stopped.                                                              )
    Reith:   I better go. I don’t belong with... the Tears of Blood.
    
    ( Reith starts walking to the direction they came from, away from Calintz.    )
    Calintz: Reith... Welcome back.
    
    ( Reith stops, surprised she looks at Calintz, as if she’s not sure of what   )
    ( she just heard. Calintz nods with his head. Reith runs to Calintz, who      )
    ( hugs Reith.                                                                 )
    Reith:   ...Thank you.
    
    
    Reith:   Thanks for taking me in, Calintz.
             ...But, I’m going back to Amabat.
    
    Calintz: Why...?
    
    Reith:   It’s my fault that Lehas died. 
             I can’t face anyone like this...
    
    Calintz: If it was because of me, I should apologize.
             I said too much back there.
    
    Reith:   No, it’s alright. I’m sure anyone would have
             reacted the same way. It’s not your fault Calintz...
             Please don’t misunderstand. I... I just don’t want 
             to keep relying on the Tears of Blood. That’s all...
    
    Calintz: Reith...
    
    Reith:   But, I can come visit, right!? Even though I’m far
             away from everyone, we’ll always be friends.
             Do you think everyone would be alright
             with that?
    
    Calintz: Reith... I’m sure they would. You’re one of us...
             You’ll always be welcomed with open arms.

    ( On the world map, at Epentar)
    Amila: What are you doing!? This incompetence is inexcusable.
    
    Orha:  I’m sorry, Your Majesty.
    
    Amila: Who else is searching for the Light of Salvation?
           The humans?
    
    Orha:  Unfortunately, that may be the case.
           There’s no guarantee that the Heroes didn’t tell
           anyone anything before they died.
    
    Amila: Then double your efforts! We need to know who 
           would be searching for the Light of Salvation and
           how they obtained their information.
           If we do not revive The Tree of Light, there will 
           be no future for the Yason.
    
    
    ( In the Conference room of the Headquarters)
    Calintz: This is my responsibility, 
             I endangered our base and failed in its defense.
             It could have been attacked at anytime by
             the Yason... If there is anyone to blame,
             it should be me.
             In light of this, I will relinquish my command
             of the Tears of Blood...

             Besides, if you quit, then I’d have to take

    |                         Agreian is calling you.                             |
    
    ( Approaching the Communication Sphere)
    Agreian: Thank you for your hard work. I know it must
             have been difficult.
    
    Calintz: Are you sure the Great Priestess doesn’t know?
    
    Agreian: There’s no need to worry... She knew the
             Hero of Water from a long time ago.
             I didn’t think she was alive.
    
    Calintz: She hadn’t aged at all. She claimed it was the
             power of the Light of Salvation.
             Before she died, she also said that the Dark Yason 
             attacked her. Maybe this secret society has
             something to do with the Dark Yason.
    
    Agreian: It is said that the Dark Yason were banished
             from Yason-Roven for not being able to
             protect the Light of Salvation.
             Their ancestors were only half-Yason and
             the Light of Salvation didn’t affect them.
    
    Calintz: So, what do you think?
    
    Agreian: I believe the Yason’s hatred towards humans
             runs deeper. I’ve heard that the Dark Yason are
             the ones who killed the Hero of Earth and took
             the Earth Shard. So, I can’t deny the possibility.
    
    Calintz: If that’s the case, we should find them right away 
             and get the Water Shard back...!
    
    Agreian: Calm down... You should keep a low profile for
             now. Mother wants to know why you went
             to look for the Hero of Water.
             Justina’s responsibility is not just to look after
             Reith...
    
    Calintz: But, we can’t just let this go...
    
    Agreian: Right now, I want you to do as I say. I intend to
             keep this from my mother until the end. If she
             ever finds out, she will never forgive me...
    
    Calintz: Hugo...
    
    
    ( Somewhere in a house, fire is burning under a cauldron, there is a table    )
    ( with books... And there is Astal, occupied with reading one of the books.   )
    Astal: Iku Me Kum Corta
           Non Omnidarr

    ( Approaching the Communication Sphere)
    Agreian: Calintz, Mother has a favor to ask of you.
    
    Calintz: What is it?
    
    Agreian: A doctor named Alex who’s stationed in Notia
             wants to come visit her here in Amabat.
             But, he has a fear of heights,
             so flying is out of question.
             Instead, I want you to escort him here.
    
    Calintz: I thought Reith was handling Mistress 
             Ladrinne’s affairs. She’s not available?
    
    Agreian: She received a letter and left to meet someone. 
             But, don’t worry. She told one of the clerics
             that is was nothing serious.
             An airship will be waiting to take you to Notia.
             The doctor is expecting you.
    
    Calintz: Alright, but you owe me one, Hugo.
    
    Agreian: Thanks for your help.
    
    Calintz: Don’t mention it.
    
    ( In front of the building)
    Pilot: At the request of General Agreian,
           we are here to fly you to Notia.
           Please climb aboard.
    
    ( On the world map, the airplane flies from the HQ to Notia)
    
    ( Before the building of the Azure Wings)
    Haren:   Let’s get this over with. We wouldn’t want to
             keep the doctor waiting. We’ll just grab ‘im
             and get outta here. 
    
    Chris:   Ha! They your put it that way, 
             it sounds like a kidnapping.
    
    Haren:   you train’ to start somethin’ !?
    
    Chris:   Hahaha... No. It was just an observation.
             Don’t be so uptight.
    
    Haren:   You wanna see uptight? I’ll show you uptight!
    
    Eonis:   Okay, okay, knock it off, you twp. Our mission
             is to escort the doctor to Amabat and ensure his
             safety. We didn’t come here to fight, did we?
    
    Calintz: She’s right. Let’s get to the clinic.
    
    ( At the Inn is the doctor waiting for the Tears of Blood)
    Alex:    Oh, you’re here.
             I’m all ready to go.

    Alex:    It’s not much, really. Go ahead.
             I want you to have it.

    Agreian: You have some nerve sneaking in here.
    
    ( The General is standing behind his desk and talking to Astal, who, with a   )
    ( drawn sword, is standing on the other side.                                 )
    Astal:   Something’s come up, unfortunately...
             Sorry, but you’ll have to die.
    
    Agreian: Hm... Do you think I’ll just stand
             here and quietly await death?
    
    Astal:   It doesn’t change the fact that you’re gonna die.
    
    Agreian: Where do you think you are?
    
    ( For a few seconds they are staring at each other, then suddenly...          )
    Agreian: Intruder! Come quickly!

    ( who obviously do not want to let them through.                              )
    Soldier: Stop!
             The Hero of Water wasn’t enough, huh?
             Now, you plan to assassinate the General?
    
    Haren:   I said, we didn’t do it!
    
    Soldier: How do we know that? You expect us to 
             trust you mercenaries?
    
    Agreian: Intruder! Come quickly?

    Soldier: What was that...?
    
    Calintz: Everyone, let’s go!

    Haren:   You stupid ugly morons! Don’t you know how to fight?
    
    ( Inside the General’s office, Astal is holding his sword at Agreian’s throat )

    Astal:   I should have killed you first.
    
    Calintz: Agreian!
    
    ( With drawn sword Calintz runs to Astal to stop him, who throws something on )
    ( the ground. It causes a blinding light, so Calintz covers his eyes. When    )
    ( the light is gone, Astal is not in the room any more.                       )
    Calintz: Agreian! Are you alright?
    
    Agreian: Yeah, I’m fine.
             When I told him I don’t accept marriage proposals
             from man, it nearly got me killed.

    Agreian: He knew... all about the Magna Carta... and
             how the shards from the Light of Salvation.
    
    Calintz: I see. Then, I’ll shut him up for all eternity.
             He won’t make it back to Yason-Roven.
    
    Agreian: Calintz... Be careful.
    
    Calintz: I repay his courtesy in full.

    [ At the area of Mt. Selton there in no conversation.]
    
    [ There is a new area of Orbonne Woods where the party up to now could not    ]
    [ enter, due to Haren complaining, that he’s not going in there, because they ]
    [ will get lost – or something like that.                                     ]
    [ If you enter now, you will get the following note:                          ]

    [          Orbonne Woods live here. Be careful.                               ]
    
    ( Finally Calintz catches up with Astal, near the sign that points to Remie.  )
    Astal:   So, you followed me here...
             Are you that anxious to die?
    
    Calintz: I’m anxious to kill you.
             It’s time you pay for your sins.
    
    Astal:   My sins?
             Who will avenge those who’ve been persecuted
             and driven from their homeland?
    
    Calintz: What are you trying to say?
    
    Astal:   You wouldn’t understand... Being the object
             of scorn-treated like you don’t even exist.
             But, what does it matter to you?
             ...You’ll have plenty of time to think
             about it when you’re six feet under.
    
    ( After defeating Astal, Calintz, the others and Astal are still standing eye )
    ( to eye. It looks like both of them are thinking about the next move, when   )
    ( Azel notices something on Astal’s arm...                                    )
    Azel:    That Vindi! Is he the one you’ve been looking for...!?
    
    Haren:   Damn! Why didn’t we notice it earlier?
    
    Calintz: so, it was you? You’re the one who
             tricked me and destroyed Fuget...?
    
    Astal:   Oh, that? I didn’t tell you? Sorry...
    
    Calintz: No need to apologize.
             I’ll settle the score with my sword.
    
    Astal:   Hmmmm, I’m looking forward to it.
    
    *** Flashback ***
    Mano is running back to Fuget, but there are only dead people lying around, the
    village is already on fire. Mano finally notices her teacher, who’s standing   
    facing the boy. Suddenly a strange voice can be heard, she collapses and there 
    are two daggers sticking out from her back. And the one who’s responsible for  
    the daggers, the young boy, Astal, Mano found in the forest, seemingly injured,
    is standing in the door of a half-destroyed house, looking really evil and
    content at the same time about the destruction he caused.
    Woman: Mano! Run away from here! Run north! Hurry!
    
    Mano:  I can’t! I can’t leave you here alone...
    
    Woman: Mano...
           Go now, Mano. I can’t help you, anymore. But, everything 
           you’ve learned here... will surely help you to survive...
           Believe in yourself... Mano
    
    Leaving his teacher behind, Mano starts running away from Fuget. But, he isn’t
    the only one running, someone or something is running after the boy.
    
    ??????: Aaaaaahh!!
    [ Unfortunately, since Mano and the other boy have pretty much the same voice ]
    [ I can’t say for sure which one of them cried out :(                         ]
    
    
    *** End of flashback ***
    
    Calintz: Well, look who’s here... This time
             you won’t escape with your life.
    
    Astal:   We’ll see about that.
    
    ( After defeating Astal...)
    Astal:   I seem to be in a pickle, here.
             You see, I have a hot date tonight...
             So, may I be excused?
    
    Calintz: Hahahahahaha... That IS a bit of a pickle.
             Hahahahaha...!
    
    Astal:   Are you crazy?
    
    Calintz: Do I seem a little crazy to you?
             I think I’ve completely lost it.
    
    Astal:   In that sense, you do remind me of your teacher...
             Rather than just giving up, she trashed
             around like a wounded animal.
    
    Calintz: Shut that filthy mouth of yours,
             or I’ll shut it for you.
    
    Astal:   Ha... In the end, she was begging for her life,
             Crying and clinging to my feet.
    
    Calintz: I said shut up! 
    
    ( Astal throws something at Calintz, which blinds him. Taking advantage of    )
    ( he attacks Calintz, who just collapses. And before the very eyes of Azel    )
    ( and Haren he just vanishes into the thin air.                               )
    
    ( Later Maya is healing Calintz, who apparently wasn’t hurt badly by Astal.)
    Azel:    Captain, are you alright!?
    
    Eonis:   What are you going to do?
    
    Calintz: Chase after him, of course!
    
    ( Maya finishes the healing.)
    Calintz: Thanks.
             I’ll follow him to the depths of hell.
             Let’s not waste any time.

    ( their surprise is...
    Reith: Calintz! 
    
    Chris: Huh? Reith?
    
    ( Standing behind Reith Justina, Raul, Rianna, and beside Rianna is Astal.    )
    Astal: They’ve already caught up.
    
    |                      Switching to Reith’s party.                            |

    Justina: Is that so...?
    
    Reith:   Yeah. I feel like I owe them a lot.
    
    Raul:    Every chick eventually grows wings
             and flies away from the nests...
    
    Rianna:  But, leaving makes it look like we did
             something wrong.
    
    Reith:   I’m sorry, Rianna... It’s my fault.
    
    Rianna:  No, don’t blame yourself... We’ll just hang out
             around Amabat for a while. We can drop by
             anytime to say hi to the Tears of Blood.
    
    
    Rianna:  Hey, Reith... I heard there’s a cave on Mt. Rhyde,
             not far from Amabat... Supposedly
             the divine vessel of lightning IS there.
             So... Do you wanna come along?
             If you don’t want to, though, it’s not a big deal.
             I’ll just go by myself.
    
    Reith:   Of course I’ll come with you.
    
    Rianna:  ...Thanks.
    
    Raul:    Afraid to go alone, huh? Don’t worry...
             We’re all friends here. You can admit it.
    
    Rianna:  Hmph, mind your own business.
    
    Justina: You don’t seem to be doing much...
             Why don’t you come with us and lend a hand?
    
    Reith:   Good idea! We’re all go together.

    [ At the areas of Mt. Rhyde there in no conversation.]
    
    Rianna:  Do you think this is the right place? 
    
    Reith:   There’s only one way to find out...
             Let’s see if we can find any clues about your
             husband.
    
    Justina: Be careful. It’s most likely infested with monsters,
             so we should make sure we’re prepared before
             we go any further.
    
    Reith:   I wonder if the divine vessel of lightning is
             really here...
    
    Raul:    Let’s go take a look around.
    
    
    ( At the “end” of the cave.”)
    Reith:   This it is... This is where the cave ends.
             When I was kidnapped by the Yason, this is
             where they kept me. Calintz and the others  
             came to save me, but I fainted when I tried to
             stop that girl Roxy’s attack.
    
    Justina: I don’t see the divine vessel anywhere.
    
    Reith:   Hmmm... From what I can remember... a huge
             monster appeared, right before I fainted...
    
    Raul:    That may have been the vessel’s guardian.
             If he defeated it, then Calintz may already
             have the divine vessel of lightning.
    
    Rianna:  How do you know so much? My husband’s a
             researcher, and I never heard him say anything about
             a guardian.
    
    Raul:    Uh... Well, I’ve been to so many places, 
             I’ve heard all the stories. Hahaha...
    
    Rianna:  Oh really? Seems you’re hiding something...
             But, I think you mean well, so I let you off
             the hook, for now.
    
    Raul:    Don’t be so suspicious. After all, I have 
             Reith’s approval.
    
    Reith:   Yeah, that’s right. I think we can trust him.
    
    Rianna:  Hey, I’m just telling you what my instincts say.
             Anyways, there doesn’t seem to be anything here
             that will help me find my husband. 
             But, I never thought it would be easy. 
             Should we go back to the Great Temple?
    
    Reith:   Yeah, let’s! Next stop: Amabat!

    | A week from now, come to Astine Marsh.                                      |

    Reith:   Aren’t you excited!?
    
    Rianna:  Geez... He never changes. What’s he thinking,
             asking me to meet him at a marsh in the middle
             of the night!?
    
    Justina: Considering the date on the letter,
             you’d better hurry.
    
    Rianna:  I can’t imagine that it’s good news,
             if we have to meet in secret.
    
    Reith:   You’re not gonna go alone, are you. It’s times
             like these when you need your friends the most.
    
    Justina: I agree.
    
    Rianna:  If you say so... Then, I guess we’ll go together.
    
    Justina: Don’t try to hide it... You’re glad we’re coming,
             aren’t you? I can see it in your eye.

    Rianna:  What’s going on? Do you know Calintz?
    
    Calintz: Of course he does.
             He’s a spy of the Blast Worms.
             He assaulted General Agreian and killed
             The Hero of Water. It was all his doing.
    
    Rianna:  Are you serious!?
             You told me it was your life’s work to study Chi!
             Was that a lie, too?
    
    Astal:   ...No, that was true. My research has
             always been for the sake of science.
    
    Calintz: Wow, you’re one hell of an actor.
    
    Astal:   Well, it worked on you, didn’t it?
    
    Calintz: Hmph. Enough talk. I’ve been looking
             for you for almost 10 years.
             My patience wore out ages ago.
    
    Astal:   It’s only taken that long
             because you’re so pathetic.
    
    Rianna:  Hey! I’m not done with my questions!
             Are you really a spy for the Yason?
             Were you just using me?
    
    Astal:   I’m no spy, nor did I use you.
    
    Rianna:  They, why!? Explain it to me!
    
    Astal:   ...It’s form the sake of my beliefs.
             Or maybe it’s a matter of pride.
    
    Calintz: Your beliefs? What sort of belief justify
             destroying an entire village?
             And now, you plan to use the Magna Carta
             to wipe out all of mankind!
    
    Astal:   Hahahaha... Is that what you think!? You fool.
    
    Reith:   Calintz... Please...
    
    ( After the fight with Astal)
    ( Calintz and Astal are standing facing each other, holding their swords,     )
    ( determined to finish the things off.                                        )
    Calintz: Damn you, Yason dog!
    
    Astal:   Just die already!
    
    Calintz: This breath will be your last
    
    ( Rianna runs between them, to stop them fighting.                            )
    Rianna:  Stop it, you two!
    
    Calintz: Stay out of this! I don’t wanna hurt you!
    
    Astal:   I gotcha.
    
    ( Astal send a attack on its way, but since Rianna is standing in front of    )
    ( Calintz, first it hurts her, that it blows Calintz away.                    )
    Rianna:  A-Astal...?
    
    Reith:   Rianna!
    
    Calintz: You bastard... How could you?
    
    ( Calintz seems really hurt, but with the help of his sword he stands up.     )
    Astal:   You are really persistent.
    
    Calintz: Shut up! I can still fight!
    
    ( They start fighting, when suddenly Astal stops...)
    Astal:   Ugh!
    
    (...because of the dagger in his back – he was stabbed by Rianna. She staggers)
    ( a few steps, and collapses. Astal drops his sword, and falls to the ground  )
    ( just opposite of Rianna.                                                    )
    Rianna:  Just stop it... Let’s put an end to this,
    
    Astal:   Sure... I guess this isn’t a bad way to go.
             But... The Turibo will move forward with 
             their plans... as long as he still lives...
    
    Calintz: What are you talking about?
    
    Astal:   It’s a secret society... run by a man named... Neikan...
             People call him... The Third Man...
             If he gets his way... then... Forget it. It’s too late, now...
    
    Rianna:  Why...? Why did it have to come to this?
             Even though you deceived me, I... I...
             ...You idiot...
    
    
    ( Calintz is sitting on the ground, at the same area, looking miserable.      )
    ( Behind him is Reith standing, with an ambiguous expression on her face.     )
    Calintz: How long are you going to stand there?
    
    Reith:   Oh! ...You noticed...
             Well, um... I’m sorry. I’ll leave you alone.
    
    Calintz: It’s okay Reith.
             You don’t have to go...
    
    ( Reith is sitting next to Calintz, who’s still looking really sad.           )
    Reith:   Calintz... You must  be tired.
    
    Calintz: No... Not really.
             If you were me... what would you’ve done? ...If you were
             forced to choose between revenge and sympathy?
             If the hatred was more that you could stand,
             would you still go through with it, even if
             you knew it would make your friends suffer?
    
    Reith:   I don’t know.
    
    Calintz: I ran away and saved myself, leaving my loved ones to die.
             Is it wrong to try and bury the past?
             What’s the difference between revenge and murder?
    
    Reith:   But, that’s the past. Besides, if you didn’t go
             through all that you wouldn’t be here today.
    
    Calintz: I know that death isn’t the answer, but...
             Just because you’re alive doesn’t mean you have
             a reason to live. Know what I mean?
    
    Reith:   No, I don’t. If you weren’t here, then I wouldn’t be here
             either. The Tears of Blood would never have existed! 
             It’s because of you that we’re all here together...
             Without you, we would be nothing.
    
    Calintz: Why do you look like you’re going to cry?
    
    Reith:   Because there’s so much pain inside you.
    
    Calintz: Don’t worry, I’m fine.
    
    
    
    Rianna:  Where am I?
    
    Justina: Are you okay? You passed out all of a sudden,
             so we thought you were seriously hurt.
             We were really worried about you.
    
    Justina: What about Astal...?
    
    Justina: There was nothing we could do.
             ...He didn’t hit anything vital. Maybe he
             missed on purpose.
    
    Rianna:  That doesn’t  make me feel any better...
    
    Justina: But, he must have wanted you to know
             the truth... Otherwise, he wouldn’t have 
             said all that before he died.
             You know? ...About The Third Man, the secret
             society, and the Darkness of Destruction. 
    
    Rianna:  The Darkness of Destruction? I don’t remember
             him saying anything about that.
    
    Justina: As he was lying on the ground, he said it
             with his dying breath.
    
    Rianna:  So what!? That doesn’t change the fact that
             he betrayed me!
             I finally know what he’s been up to all this
             time... hangin’ out with those weirdoes 
             who attacked Calintz.
             He was one of them, wasn’t he!? I’m such
             an idiot. I should have known better...
    
    Justina: He simply chose a different path than ours.
             It’s no one’s fault.
    
    Rianna:  Stop making excuses for him!
             That jerk! I hope he’s happy, now that he’s dead!
    
    Justina: Rianna...
    
    
    ( On the world map, at Mt. Selton.)
    Neikan: ..........
    
    Turibo: Yes, m’lord. We’ve confirmed Astal’s death. 
            The traitor died in combat against the
            Tears of Blood.
    
    Neikan: ..........
    
    Turibo: No, he didn’t give them anything.
    
    Neikan: ..........
    
    Turibo: No, m’lord. I assure you, I watched closely! 
            There were no signs that he intended to betray us.
            He must have planned his moves carefully.
    
    Neikan: ..........
    
    Turibo: Yes, that’s right. We checked all his belongings,
            just as you ordered, but we found nothing.
            Perhaps he destroyed the evidence, 
            since he was so thorough. 
    
    Neikan: ..........
    
    Turibo: I-I beg your pardon! I know my opinion
            is unnecessary! Please, forgive me!!
    
    Neikan: ..........
    
    Turibo: Yes, m’lord! I understand. We’ll continue
            investigating, and we’ll find anything
            of importance that he left behind.

    ( In the usual “treating room” General Agreian is half lying, half sitting on )
    ( the bed, listening to Calintz’s report.                                     )
    Calintz: Astal’s dead! It’s over. So, what are they thinking!
    
    Agreian: You’re too loud.
    
    Calintz: What now?
    
    Agreian: Astal is dead, and the Turibo has lost its leader.
             But, there’s still a problem.
    
    Calintz: That’s right... The Third Man.
    
    Agreian: Exactly. We still haven’t caught the spy within the 
             Alliance who was leaking information to Astal.
             He’ll probably continue to spy on us.
    
    Calintz: So, the investigation was a failure.
    
    Agreian: The problem is, my authority in the Alliance is not absolute.
             In fact, I’m facing a number of restrictions.
    
    Calintz: So, the Alliance sees you simply as the Great Priestess’s son...
    
    Agreian: I’m afraid so.
    
    Calintz: Who the brass think is doing the fighting!? Hiding behind
             their rank... All they do is talk about ideals!
    
    Agreian: That’s not the only problem.
    
    Calintz: You mean there’s more?
    
    Agreian: The Holy Order of Eryu has issued a warrant for
             Rianna’s arrest, because she was Astal’s wife.
             I never imagined they’d go that far.
             If I’d known sooner, I would have tried to intervene...
             I’m truly sorry.
    
    Calintz: Do you think they’ll try and pin this on her?
    
    Agreian: They need a scapegoat. That’s how politics work. Publicly,
             The Holy Order of Eryu plans to launch a full scale investigation. 
             The arrest warrant clearly indicated their intentions. 
    
    Calintz: When will this happen?
    
    Agreian: More than likely, clerics are already on their route to the 
             Tears of Blood Headquarters.
             I couldn’t warn you earlier, because we have yet to catch
             the spy; I had no choice but to wait for you to come here.
    
    Calintz: I have get back to Headquarters...!
    
    Agreian: I’m sorry, but there really wasn’t anything I could do.
             Unfortunately, the warrant was forwarded to me as well, too.
             Technically, I should order you to arrest her.
             But lately, I’ve been so busy, I forgot to inform you.
             Officially, no have received no such order.
    
    Calintz: Thanks for all your help.
    
    Agreian: We’re old friends. It’s the least I could do.

    ( In the Conference Room)
    
    Rianna:  You’ve been looking for me?
    
    Calintz: Looks like I made it in time.
    
    Rianna:  In time for what?
    
    Calintz: Have you heard of The Holy Oder of Eryu?
    
    Rianna:  Yeah, I’ve heard of ‘em.
    
    Calintz: After that happened to Astal, they
             began hunting for spies.
             As part of their investigation, they’ve
             issued a warrant for your arrest.
    
    Rianna:  Who, me!?
    
    Calintz: I was ordered to arrest you. C’mon we have to hurry.
    
    Cleric1: We found the spy!
    
    Cleric2: You received orders from General Agreian, right?
    
    Calintz: What are you talking about?
    
    ( Rianna single-handedly smack out the clerics and turns to Calintz, who is   )
    ( during the whole time just standing there, but not helping the clerics.     )
    Rianna:  Calintz! I can’t believe you! You’re nothing but Agreian’s dog!?
    
    Reith:   Calintz? Did you really agreed to arrest her?
    
    Rianna:  He brought the clerics here, didn’t he? 
             Of course he would...
             That’s the kind of person he is.
    
    Calintz: Is that what you think of me? I’ll remember that.
    
    Reith:   Calintz... Do you always do everything Agreian says?
    
    Rianna:  Next time we meet, I’ll kick your ass! So, be ready!
    
    Reith:   I’m disappointed in you, Calintz! Rianna, wait!
    
    ( With this said, Rianna and Reith runs out of the room)
    Cleric1: She’s tough! After her!
    
    Cleric2: Captain, you received orders too, right?
             Don’t just stand there, help us!
    
    Calintz: Did I give you the wrong idea?
             You wanna see something interesting?
    
    ( He’s holding his sword in his hand, pointed towards the ground.             )
    Cleric2: W-We’re allies, right!?
    
    Calintz: Allies? Such a beautiful word. I’m touched...

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Haren:   So? What’s the General say?
    
    Calintz: The Holy Order of Eryu has intervened.
             They’re even more anti-Yason than
             the officers in the Alliance.
    
    Azel:    Can’t General Agreian do something!?
    
    Calintz: Don’t blame Agreian.
             He’s doing all he can, with his injury.
             But, he couldn’t keep the The Holy Order at bay.
    
    Haren:   Don’t you get it!? They kill fugitives on the spot
             rather than let them get away.
    
    Calintz: I’m well aware of that.
             That’s why the Tears of Blood need to capture
             Rianna while Agreian tries to buy us time.
    
    Haren:   What!? You want us to arrest her!?
    
    Calintz: We’ll just be protecting her. But first, we have
             to find her before she’s caught and executed.
    
    Haren:   You make it sound so simple! What will we
             do after that? We can’t hide her forever!
    
    Calintz: We’ll escort her to Amabat. Then, we’ll stick
             around for the questioning.
             If Agreian handles the interrogation, then she’ll
             be released without charge, That’s why we need 
             to find her first. 
             C’mon, let’s get started.
    
    Azel:    But, where?
    
    Calintz: Well, aside from Yason-Roven, where’s the only
             place that she’s be safe from both the Alliance
             and Amabat?
    
    Haren:   Of course! The Garden of Light!
    
    Calintz: Yes, Emon. Let’s go...
    
    
    ( In Calintz’s office)
    Calintz: What’s going on?
             The Third Man, Neikan... Does he really exit?
             The one who controls the Dark Yason
             within the Turibo.
             What does he want? ...I haven’t got a clue.
             Hugo, what should I do?
             Anyways, Reith’s safety comes first.
             ...There’s no reason to hesitate.
             Don’t look back; just keep moving forward.
    
    ( On the world map)
    Calintz: Lets head over to Emon to find Reith.
    
    Azel:    Um... How do we get there, Captain?
    
    Calintz: Go south from Rance Woods.
    
    Azel:    So, we’re heading to Rance Woods, then?
    
    Calintz: That’s right. We don’t have time to waste.
             Let’s go.

    Rianna: Why me? What did I do?
    
    Raul:   It’s because your husband was a spy. 
            The Alliance’s plans has been thwarted 
            many times, you know.
            I other words, they’re looking for a scapegoat.
    
    Rianna: Is that so? Well, thanks for clearing that up
            for me!
    
    Reith:  Hey, no fighting.
    
    Raul:   They’re probably looking for you all over Efferia,
            and going to Yason-Roven is out of the question...
    
    Rianna: So, whatcha train’ to get at?
    
    Raul:   There’re only one place to go... Emon.
    
    Reith:  The Garden of Light?
    
    Raul:   That’s right. It’s a safe haven where Amabat
            can’t touch us.
            Right now, it’s our only hope.
    
    
    ( Going past the save point...)
    Raul:   For heaven’s sake... Don’t you realize that the clerics are
            probably already there waiting? Even I’d think of that.
    
    Rianna: You don’t understand! I have to go and get it, 
            before they tear the place apart.
    
    Raul:   But, the clerics are there.
    
    Rianna: It’s important to me! If you’re too scared, then don’t come!
            I’ll go by myself if I have to.
    
    Raul:   You’re a wanted felon. If you’re caught, it’ll all be over.
    
    Rianna: Like I said, I’ll go by myself.
    
    Raul:   I see... ...So, what is this thing that’s so important?
    
    Rianna: ...It’s... It’s none of your business.
    
    Raul:   Alright, you win. Let’s go find this
            “important” thing whatever that is...
    
    Reith:  Will we have to fight?
    
    Rianna: Probably. Sorry for being selfish, Reith.
    
    Raul:   Hey, why are you only apologizing to her?

    Rianna: Yep, I guess it does.
    
    Raul:   Sorry to interrupt, but what’s that package?
    
    Rianna: A package? Where?

    Raul:   I don1t know but I have a feeling we’re not alone.
            Let’s talk later. We should leave!
    
    
    ( On the world map)
    Raul:   Alright, let’s head to Emon, then.
    
    Rianna: Thanks for coming with me, Reith.
    
    Reith:  You don’t need to thank me... We’re friends,
            aren’t we?
    
    Rianna: Haha... Yes we are.
    
    Raul:   Hey! What about me!?

    Yason soldier: Humans? Why are you here?
    
    Raul:          Irreconcilable differences. We’d like to stay
                   here for a while.
    
    Yason soldier: We don’t offer sanctuary for criminals, you know.
    
    Raul:          It’s political. Can you make an exception,
                   just this once?
    
    Yason soldier: Let ‘em in. It won’t make any difference.
    
    Yason soldier: Emon is a peaceful place. If you cause a ruckus,
                   you’ll be exiled immediately, Got it?
    
    Raul:          We understand. We won’t make any trouble.
    
    
    ( At the end of the village, in front of a building, the Yason Elder is       )
    ( telling a tale to a group of children about...                              )
    Elder: ...So you see, the Magna Carta is meant for 
           only those who know how to use it wisely.
           Because, if you’re not careful with it, it could destroy the entire 
           world. In other words it could be the Light of Salvation 
           or it could the Darkness of Destruction. 
    
    Child: What does it look like?
    
    Elder: Hahaha, I’ve never seen it either, so I wouldn’t know.
    
    Child: If we only had the Magna Carta.
           Then we could protect our village.
    
    Elder: Hahaha, that’s the spirit. It’s important that you never
           forget your responsibility to protect those you love.
    
    ( The Elder notices Reith, who’s been standing there, listening to his tale.  )
    Elder: Alright, time for you all to head home.
           Now, then... What business do you
           have with and old Yason like me?
    
    
    ( In the building)
    Seiton:  Hmmm... so, that’s what happened, huh?
             The Holy Order has become quite a
             body of extremists.
             At any rate, I’m sorry to hear about Astal.
    
    Rianna:  Right nor, I’m just pissed off.
             I thought he was out doing research.
             I guess I was a fool to believe him.
    
    Seiton:  Research, you say? That’s odd.
             I wonder what someone from a secret society 
             would be studying...
    
    Rianna:  Uhhh, let’s see... From what he told me...
             You know what? I haven’t got a clue.
    
    Seiton:  I see...
             Perhaps it’s for the best. Still, he’s probably
             not the leader of the Dark Yason.
    
    Reith:   What makes you say that?
    
    Seiton:  I’ve been investigating the Dark Yason
             for many years, now. Based on the 
             information they’ve been able to obtain, 
             I believe they have a source high up.
    
    Justina: I’ve noticed that as well.
             He must be a careful man.
    
    Seiton:  Yeah, since no one’s found him out yet.
             I believe The Third Man is the true leader,
             and that he’s just using the Dark Yason.
             Your husband may have been cooperating 
             with him for some reason.
    
    Rianna:  Why’s that?
    
    Seiton:  Hahaha. That’s something eve this
             old Yason doesn’t know. From what
             you’ve told me though, it seems that the 
             Tears of Blood have been in the right place
             at the right time. This General Agreian
             must be a pretty resourceful.
    
    Rianna:  Yeah, Calintz and Agreian know
             how to get results. The problem is, 
             they’re both so damn callous.
    
    Seiton:  Calm down, now. We’ve been talking for so
             long, you’re probably getting tired.
             Why don’t you go and get some rest?
             There’s no reason to get yourself all worked up.
    
    Reith:   Thank you so much.

          The Tears of Blood and the Turibo...?
          Are they after the Light of Salvation?
    
    
    
    Seiton: Indeed, the enmity between humans and
            the Yason has only grown stronger.
            But, I’ve been trying to find a solution.
            That’s why I’d like to meet with
            the Great Priestess. She has the power
            to influence many people.
    
    Reith:  They, I’ll go talk to her. I’ve already met her
            once before.
    
    Rianna: Are you out of your mind!? We’re being
            chased by The Holy Order of Eryu!
            We can’t just go back and ask for a meeting
            with the Great Priestess!
            We’ll be killed!
    
    Seiton: Please, don’t do anything dangerous
            on my account.
            I realize that you are already in enough trouble
            as it is, and many people will stop at nothing to
            see that this plan fails.
    
    Reith:  I’ll give her your message. Please, let me try!
            I want to end this war!
            ...I don’t want anyone else to end up like Astal.
    
    Seiton: ...I sense your determination. 
            Will you really help me?
    
    Reith:  Yes, I’ll do whatever I can.

    Justina: Oh, really? That’s not what you were
             saying earlier...
    
    Reith:   No, that’s not true! I-I didn’t mean it like that...
    
    Rianna:  Thanks, Calintz.
    
    Calintz: I never intended to hand you over to 
             The Holy Order.
             I hears about what happened from Hugo, 
             but by the time I arrived, it was too late.
             I’m glad I finally caught up with you.
             Hugo said you were headed for Emon.
    
    Rianna:  He did? I thought he didn’t like me.
    
    Calintz: He may not show it, but he has a kind heart.
    
    Reith:   We should thank him later.
    
    Rianna:  Here, read this. It was in a package Astal left
             for me, but I have no idea what it means.

             is leading the Dark Yason. But, why is he called
             “The Third Man”?
    
    Reith:   So, he’s the one we need to find?
    
    Calintz: We can’t even be sure it’s a “he”. There’s a 
             possibility that we’re just being led to think
             that way.
    
    Rianna:  Calintz, that bastard is the one who
             made Astal destroy your village.
             ...It doesn’t day why, though.
    
    Calintz: I don’t care what his reasons were. All I care
             about is finding him – that’s it. I’ll chase him
             to the end of the earth if I have to.
    
    
    ( Meanwhile in Amabat, General Agreian is sitting in his office, looking at    )
    ( the bracelet he received from Calintz, when they were kids.                  )
    Agreian: As proof of our friendship, we exchanged items 
             that were important to us. I gave you a knife 
             and you gave me this bracelet.
             That was so long ago. If you think about it, 
             we really have come a long was.
             Haven’t we, Calintz?
             But, while you continue to run, I am at a 
             standstill. Sometimes I envy you, my friend.
             Hahahahahahaha!
             Cleric, enter!
    
    ( A cleric enters the room, and stoops in front the Agreian’s desk)
    Agreian: My wounds have fully healed, so I’ll be
             resuming my normal duties. I expect 
             a full report on the current situation.
    
    Cleric:  Of course, sir.
    
    Agreian: Calintz... it would be truly wonderful if this 
             world could be transformed into the place you
             dream of... but... reality’s not like that.
    
    
    ( On the world map, at Remie)
    Calintz: Take Reith to Amabat, like we discussed. 
             Be careful, thought, since they’ll be looking
             for you. Go and see Mistress Ladrinne. 
             Try to convince her to arrange a peace 
             conference. 
    
    Justina: We’ll take care of it.
    
    Calintz: Most likely, there will be clerics guarding Amabat.
             It may be difficult, but do your best.
    
    Reith:   That’s strange.
    
    Calintz: What?
    
    Reith:   I thought you’d be against something 
             like a peace conference.
    
    Calintz: I am against it. I don’t believe there’s any way
             we can reach and agreement with the Yason.
    
    Reith:   Then, why are you asking us to do this?
    
    Calintz: The war is taking its toll on all of us, 
             including me.
             There’s nothing wrong with believing in peace,
             but it’ll never happen.
    
    Reith:   Can’t you be more optimistic?
    
    Calintz: I’m going to follow through the original plan.
    
    Justina: You mean the “secret” mission you
             planned with Agreian...?
    
    Calintz: We’re all in this together.

    ( At the communication sphere)
    Agreian: I appreciate you coming, but why take 
             unnecessary risks when there’s a warrant for 
             your arrest?
             Attacking a cleric was a mistake.
    
    Calintz: I’m sorry, but there was no other way.
    
    Agreian: Was it because of Reith?
    
    Calintz: ...I know how to get my revenge, now.
    
    Agreian: But, Astal’s already dead...
    
    Calintz: He wasn’t their leader.
             We’re looking for someone named Neikan.
    
    Agreian: Are you certain of this?
             If so, I’ll start digging for information.
    
    Calintz: Don’t bother. I doubt that’s his real name.
    
    Agreian: I can’t hurt to try. If this is his real name,
             then I’ll deal with him myself.
    
    Calintz: He has the Wind Shard and the Water Shard.
             We have to act fast. I think know where their 
             hideout it...
    
    Agreian: Hm!? Where? I’ll have a battalion sent 
             there at once.
    
    Calintz: Hold on, there could be a traitor in out midst...
             We have to be careful.
    
    Agreian: You’re right. If we mobilize out troops, then
             someone could leak the information to this 
             Neikan.
    
    Calintz: If he knows we’re coming, he’ll have time to
             prepare. Then, we won’t stand a chance.
             It’s better if I lead a surprise attack.
    
    Agreian: That’s too dangerous! You don’t know what you’re 
             getting yourself into.
             Even though we know where they are, there’s 
             not much we can do, now.
    
    Calintz: If I head anything more, I’ll let you know.
             But, we can’t afford to wait.
    
    Agreian: If you do manage to capture him, it’ll be much
             Easier getting the warrant for your arrest lifted.
    
    Calintz: Yeah, that’s why I don’t want to miss this chance.
             The others are bringing Reith to Amabat.
             Please help them if you can.
    
    Agreian: Easier said than done.
             The clerics are searching for them in droves.
    
    
    
    Agreian: I’m surprised there’s someone like that in Emon.
             I’ll do whatever I can to help.
    
    Calintz: And take care of Reith, too, please.
    
    Agreian: Leave it to me; you’ve got enough to worry 
             about. I can’t afford to loose such a good friend.
    
    Calintz: Thanks. I should go, now. I’ll be in touch.

    [ At the area of Orbonne Woods there is no conversation.]
    
    ( Right after crossing the bridge that leads to the Celestial Ruins, there is )
    ( a cave on the left side, leading to the Turibo Hideout. Inside, there are   )
    ( a few Turibo, waiting for them.                                             )
    
    Calintz: Looks like they were expecting us.
    
    Azel:    Captain, aren’t we a little outnumbered?
    
    Haren:   I thought this was a secret society.
             ...It’s more like a private army.
    
    Turibo:  We’ve been waiting for you.
    
    Calintz: So, you’ve been spying on us?
    
    Turibo:  Of course. We know exactly what you’re up to.
    
    Calintz: I just have one question: is Neikan really inside?
             We don’t want to kill all of you for nothing.
    
    Turibo:  Since you’re so confident, why don’t you
             give it a try?
    
    ( After the fight)
    Haren:   If this group’s so secret, then how come there’s
             so many of ‘em!?
    
    Chris:   Damn, I’m tired... Can I call a T.O.?
    
    Eonis:   What should we do, Calintz?
             This is far beyond what we expected.
    
    Azel:    But, what about the plan!?
    
    Haren:   Are we fighting or what!?
             We don’t have time for chit-chat!
    
    Calintz: *grunt*
             Retreat! We’ll finish this later.
    
    
    ( After leaving the cave, a few steps away from it...)
    Chris:   *huff**huff* I don’t normally panic,
             but that just about gave me a heart attack!
    
    Haren:   Where the hell did they all come from?
    
    Calintz: I’m sorry, it’s my fault. I underestimated them.

    ( After the earlier conversation, the party automatically ends up in Ranca.   )
    ( There, right away, a flare appears on the sky, coming from the direction    )
    ( of the Headquarters...                                                      )
    Azel:    Captain! A flare! Our Headquarters must be under attack!
    
    Chris:   This is the first time I’ve seen a flare shot from there.
    
    Calintz: We’ve got the get back. Hurry!

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    ( In front of the Headquarters, there are 3 tied up Tears of Blood soldier    )
    ( guarded by a Blast Worm... and Orha.                                        )
    Calintz: Stop!
    
    ( Orha turns to Calintz, and beside him, there are other Blast Worms.)
    Orha:    Long time no see. Have you been well?
    
    Calintz: Yeah, I’ve been just fine. But, not that I have 
             a chance to fight you, I’m feeling even better.
    
    Orha:    She’s not here.
    
    Calintz: You lay so much as a finger on Reith, 
             and I’ll send you straight to hell! 
    
    Orha:    I should be giving the warnings...
             You’re in no position to make demands.
    
    Haren:   You son-of-a-bitch!
    
    Orha:    If you agree to come quietly, then no one will be harmed.
    
    Calintz: You think I’d trust a Yason?
    
    Orha:    That’s up to you. But, right now, you don’t have
             many options to choose from.
    
    Haren:   You coward!
    
    Orha:    If you refuse my request, then I’ll kill the
             hostages one by one. If you try to do anything
             stupid, then they all die.
             However, if Calintz gives himself up, then no
             blood needs to be shed. The choice is obvious, right?
    
    ( Calintz, after thinking on the situation, throws his sword on the ground.)
    Calintz: Alright, I’ll surrender. But, you better keep your word.
    
    Orha:    Of course. I don’t plan on staying here long;
             I need to get back to Yason-Roven.
             ...Guards, prepare to leave!
    
    ( Haren raises his hands, ready to attack the Blast Worms, who walk towards   )
    ( Calintz, but Calintz stops him.                                             )
    Calintz: As of this moment, the Tears of Blood is no more.
    
    Haren    What!?
    
    ( Calintz walks away with the 2 Blast Words...)
    Orha:    I have business with Reith, also. Bring her to
             Yason-Roven, and I guarantee both their safety.
             Of course, it’s up to you whether or not 
             you accept my proposal.
    
    ( Orha walks away after the others.)

    ( On the world map, at Mt. Selton)
    Turibo: You want us to kill Chief Seiton? But...
    
    Neikan: ..........
    
    Turibo: Oh, no!! Forgive me! I’ll do as you ask!
    
    Neikan: ..........
    
    Turibo: No, we’re still searching for them. Don’t worry, 
            it won’t be long before we have Calintz and
            the Tears of Blood in our hands.
    
    Neikan: ..........
    
    Turibo: I understand, sir. We’ll get right on it.
    
    
    ( Reith and the others, after a few steps bump into a few clerics...          )
    Cleric:  Why don’t you just surrender? The more you
             resist, the worst your sentence will be.
    
    Reith:   We came all the way from Emon. 
             We have to talk to the Great Priestess!
    
    Cleric:  Huh!? What the hell were you doing in Emon?
    
    Rianna:  *sigh* We had things to do there, okay!?
             We’re not Yason spies! Got it?
    
    Cleric:  How do we know you’re telling the truth? 
             Wait a minute... I bet you had something to do
             with Seiton’s death...
    
    Rianna:  What are you talking about?
    
    Cleric:  Did you really come from Emon? The Chief
             there was just assassinated. But, I guess of you’ve 
             been on the run, you might not have heard.
    
    Justina: Let’s turn back. I think we should reevaluate 
             our plans.
    
    Rianna:  I’m not sure how much longer we can keep 
             This up!
    
    Cleric:  You think you can beat us?
    
    Rianna:  Shut up! We don’t have time for you.
    
    ( After the fight with the clerics.)
    
    ( Meanwhile in Epentar, in the usual room, Amila is standing behind her desk, )
    ( staring out the window. In front of the desk is Orha waiting.               )
    Orha:  Your Highness, we don’t have a moment to waste.
           We have no information about how close they
           are to completing the Light o Salvation.
           If the Tears of Blood manages to unite all of the
           shards, then it will mean the end of the Yason.
    
    Amila: Is the Light of Salvation the only thing you
           care about?
    
    Orha:  What are you implying?
    
    Amila: You’re never honest with me.
           Do whatever you like. I’m simply a puppet for
           The Four Warriors.
    
    Orha:  With all due respect, Your Highness, you are
           the leader of Yason-Roven.
           What I’m concerned is Carian and Azhadi.
           I believe they may be planning something.
    
    Amila: Worrying will only make you tired.
           They’re not planning anything...
           In fact, compared to you, they seem unquestionably loyal.
    
    Orha:  May I say something, Your Highness...?
    
    Amila: That’s enough! You don’t intend to obey my
           orders... Just do as you like.
    
    Orha:  We will crush the Tears of Blood, as you
           requested.
           Please take care of yourself while I am away.
           And if you would, be mindful of the two
           comrades I mentioned earlier.
    
    Amila: I said that’s enough.
    
    
    ( On the world map, at Epentar)
    Carian: He’s got something up his sleeve... I know it!
            The question is, what?
    
    Azhadi: Why don’t we just send in some spies?
    
    Carian: He doesn’t even trust himself. That’s how
            cautious Orha is...
            If we send in spies, he’ll figure it out. 
            Then, he’ll be even more careful.
            I don’t understand why Amila tolerates it!
            She doesn’t even question Orha’s actions.
            When did she become so soft!?
    
    Azhadi: It’s the Rheuma. She doesn’t have much time left.
            What a sad fate for the one who stopped
            the Forbidden Magic... Hahaha
    
    Carian: That’s right – The Forbidden Magic! 
            She’s been different ever since.
            Something must have happened...
            We have to find out what. To gain the upper 
            hand, we need to know exactly what happened
            after the attack...
            Once we know the truth... the Queen and Orha
            will be finished... Hmhmhmhm...

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Rianna:  I can’t believe Seiton was assassinated...
             Did he know too much for his own good?
    
    Justina: A peace conference will be more difficult, now.
             Without a mediator, the war will just drag on.
    
    Rianna:  It doesn’t matter anyway.
             The war can’t be stopped.
    
    Justina: That’s not necessarily true.
             I’ve heard that the Alliance is searching for
             the Light of Salvation.
    
    Rianna:  Is that why they’ve been following us?
    
    Justina: But, we’re not the ones they should be after.
             The Tears of Blood probably know more than 
             we do, since they hate the Yason so much.
    
    Raul:    THAT’S why they’re looking for the Light of 
             Salvation!? Don’t people ever learn!?
    
    Rianna:  Whaddya mean!?
    
    Justina: Is there something you’re not telling us?
    
    Raul:    There’s one thing I know for sure – the Light of
             Salvation is more dangerous than you think.
             It’s a threat both for the Yason and humans.
    
    Rianna:  Don’t say such scary things.
             Besides, how do you now that?
    
    Justina: Yes, Raul...
             You’re well informed for a swordsman.
             I was suspicious of you from the start...
             Your skill level is far above average.
             That’s why I did some research.
             No offense, but if I’m right, then you’re over
             60 years old.
    
    Rianna:  You’re saying he’s an old man...
             How can he not take offense to that!?
    
    Justina: He looks a lot younger then he really is because
             he never grows older...
             There’s only one possible explanation for that, 
             right, Raul? I bet you knew Elaie Crane, too.
             Am I right?
    
    Raul:    Yes, that’s correct.
             ...Anthony Abel – that’s my real name.
    
    Reith:   Then, you’re one of The Eight Heroes?
    
    Raul:    Yes, I’m sorry for hiding it.
             I’m the Hero of the Heavens.
             But, I prefer to avoid formalities.
    
    Rianna:  I-I can’t believe it.
    
    Raul:    Until now, I never thought the mistake we made
             50 years ago could be repeated...
    
    Rianna:  But... Can’t the Light of Salvation be used to end
             the war?
    
    Raul:    You don’t understand.
             Once it’s in your possession, nothing else seems
             to matter. Time loses its meaning, and little by
             little, your sanity vanishes. 
             A few of my close friends went completely insane.
             To wield so much power in that state of mind can 
             result in disaster.
             And now, they’re trying to reunite it!
             Why do you think we divided it and hid it?
             ...Because we were so scared of what would
             happen if someone brought the fragments together.
    
    Justina: So, that’s what happened to The Eight Heroes, 
             and why the Light of Salvation was kept a secret.
    
    Raul:    Unfortunately, some power-hungry fools are out
             searching for it again. 
             It doesn’t matter it it’s hidden.
             With the right people looking, they’ll find it.
             All out effort was is vain...
             The Eight Heroes are nothing but failures.
             If people seek en end to the war through its power,
             then the whole world is doomed.
    
    Reith:   The Light of Salvation holds terrifying power that 
             should never be unleashed.
    
    Raul:    It should be feared, not admired.
             Coveting its power will only lead to ruin.
             In the wrong hands, all that awaits is utter
             destruction.
    
    
    ( They are walking in Rance Woods, when suddenly a flare appears.)
    Justina: Look, a flare!
    
    Rianna:  It’s not Calintz’s. ...Is it from the Headquarters?
    
    Raul:    Must be an emergency.
    
    Reith:   Let’s hurry and get back!
             They might need our help.
    
    ( They are running to the other direction, towards the Headquarters, when     )
    ( Reith stops.                                                                )

    ( Arriving at the Headquarters, Justina is looking around to see what’s the   )
    ( problem, when she notices Haren and Chris talking in front of the building. )
    Justina: We saw the signal flare. What happened?
    
    Haren:   Calintz... was taken away by Orha.
    
    Reith:   He was? But, why?
    
    Haren:   Some of our men were taken hostage...
             There was nothing we could do.
    
    Rianna:  But, why Calintz?
    
    Haren:   He asked us to bring Reith to Yason-Roven.
    
    Reith:   Me? Then, because of me, Calintz...
    
    Rianna:  They still want Reith...? Well, that’s too damn bad.
    
    Haren:   If I bring Reith there, Calintz will never forgive me.
    
    Reith:   Will they release him if I go there?
    
    Haren:   No way! Don’t even think about it!
             If Calintz was willing to hand you over, 
             he wouldn’t have surrendered in the first place!
    
    Chris:   That’s right. All of Calintz’s hard work will go to waste.
             You don’t want that, do you?
    
    Reith:   But if I go there, maybe Orha will...
    
    Haren:   You can’t trust him! He’s our enemy! Anyone who believes
             what their enemy says, doesn’t deserve to survive!
    
    Rianna:  I know you’re angry, but we have visitors...
    
    ( ...5 clerics show up, ready for the fight.)

    ( In a prison cell, Calintz, with his hand tied is sitting on the floor,      )
    ( while two Blast Worms are interrogating him.                                )
    
    Blast Worm1: I hear you’re stubborn, so let’s make this simple.
                 Just tell us who has the shards you’ve collected?
    
    Calintz:     Wouldn’t you know it, I lost ‘em.
    
    Blast Worm2: you bastard, you think you’re so smart!
    
    Blast Worm1: I have to admit, you’re pretty tough.
                 I can respect you as a warrior.
    
    Calintz:     And is this how you show your respect?
    
    Blast Worm2: I told you. There’s no point being nice to humans!
    
    ( Orha enters the cell, the Blast Worms bow before him.)
    Orha:        Under the circumstances, I’m not sure how to greet you...
                 What do you think of Yason-Roven?
    
    Calintz:     Oh, it’s been delightful... As you can see, I’ve been tied up, 
                 and beaten. What more do I have to look forward to?
    
    Orha:        I’m glad you haven’t lost your sense of humor.
    
    Calintz:     Truthfully, I’d like to beat the hell outta you right now, 
                 but my hands are tied.
    
    Orha:        Tell me... Where are the shards that you have collected?
    
    Calintz:     Why? ...You wanna be saved?
    
    Orha:        There’s no use changing the subject.
                 We just want back what you humans stole.
                 ...It was originally ours.
                 I’m sure you already know, but we have a good reason 
                 for wanting them returned.
    
    Calintz:     The Magna Carta...?
    
    Blast Worm1: What did he say?
    
    Blast Worm2: Yeah, what’s he talking about?
    
    Orha:        Everyone out! Immediately!
    
    ( The Blast Worms leave the cell, leaving Orha with Calintz alone.)
    Blast Worm1: He said something about the Magna Carta.
    
    Blast Worm2: Him? He knows about it?
    
    Blast Worm1: Yeah, seems like General Orha doesn’t want us to hear.
    
    Orha:        That’s not something you should be saying
                 in front of just anyone.
    
    Calintz:     It’s not a secret anymore, right?
                 The was can’t be stopped;
                 it’s only going to get worse.
    
    Orha:        Even the Four Warriors do not fully understand 
                 the Magna Carta. It’s too dangerous to tell anyone 
                 about it.
    
    Calintz:     Yeah, it could lead to more fighting. People
                 will turn on each other. That’s what happens 
                 when it comes to power.
                 And there’s no greater power than this.
    
    Orha:        That’s why we must keep it a secret. No one
                 must know the relation between the Light 
                 of Salvation and the Magna Carta.
    
    Calintz:     But, wouldn’t it be fun just to tell everyone?
                 Humans and Yason are such idiots...
                 They both love spreading rumors.
    
    Orha:        How naive are you. You think the Light of
                 Salvation and Magna Carta exists for your sake?
    
    Calintz:     Well...
    
    Orha:        You are weak... You’ve been blinded by the
                 promise of power.
                 If you think the Light of Salvation can save
                 mankind, then you are mistaken.
                 That dream is just an illusion.
                 Those like you who lust for power or who are
                 consumed by anger are pathetic. Farewell.
    
    
    
    ( Calintz is sitting in his cell alone, still with tied hands, when the door  )
    ( opens, and a Yason enters, holding Calintz’s sword.                         )
    Yason:       Ugh... You’re still alive, huh? I guess they
                 didn’t make it this far.
    
    ( He limps to Calintz.)
    Calintz:     That wound looks pretty bad. Who’s you pissed off?
    
    Yason:       This is no time to joke. Hold still.
    
    Calintz:     ...What are you doing?
    
    ( The Yason cuts the ropes on Calintz’s hands, who stands up, and rubs his    )
    ( wrists.                                                                     )
    Yason:       Just shut up and run! Until you’re out of
                 Yason-Roven, everyone you see is your enemy.
    
    Calintz:     Why are you letting me go?
                 And what the hell was all that noise?
    
    Yason:       I hate admit this... but there’s been a 
                 rebellion... There are two Blast Worms on
                 their way here to kill you.
    
    Calintz:    Wait... You got that wound helping me?
    
    Yason:      I wouldn’t help a human in a million years!
                It’s just... I’m so sick of this... All this bickering...
                Fighting among us... It shouldn’t be this way...
    
    Calintz:    What are you going to do... in your condition?
    
    Yason:      Just go dammit! Get out of here! I know I won’t
                last long... You think I don’t realize that!?
    
                Uaahh!
    
    ( Meanwhile they were talking, the 2 Blast Worms sent to kill Calintz arrive, )
    ( and they kill the Yason, who was ready to leave Calintz.                    )
    Blast Worm1: Good! He’s still here!
    
    Blast Worm2: Our orders are to kill him!
    
    Calintz:     Just try it, you bastards.
    
    
    ( Calintz is walking around on the prison level...)
    Calintz: Where... am I?
    
    ( ...when suddenly he notices Yason bodies lying in the corridor, bodies,     )
    ( which are half petrified.                                                   )
    Calintz: Oh, my god! Is this because of Rheuma?
             Are these the people I hated so much?
             ...Is this what I wanted?
             ...No! Not this!
    
    ( On the world map, at Epentar)
    Carian:     You fools! This isn’t what I had planned!
    
    Blast Worm: Some of my soldiers took matters into their own
                hands. At this rate, it will look like there’s a
                rebellion...
    
    Carian:     You idiot! There IS a rebellion...
                Your soldiers are ignoring their orders.
                If that’s not a rebellion, then what is!?
    
    Blast Worm: One more thing... You know that human 
                you wanted killed during the confusion...?
                Well, we can’t find him anywhere.
    
    Carian:     What!? My plan is ruined!!
                ...Wait. That may not be a bad thing.
                Listen carefully. While is busy looking for 
                the girl, I’ll continue to toy with the Queen’s head.
                I want you to spread a rumor that the Queen is
                conspiring with humans, and that’s the reason 
                she let the prisoner escape.
                No matter what, though, you have to make sure
                that Orha and the human are see together.
                I don’t care how you do it, but we need to arouse 
                some suspicion. Got it!?
    
    Blast Worm: Don’t worry. I’ll take care of it.
    
    Carian:     What are you waiting for? Get going!
                There’s no turning back, now.
                I’ll have to revise the plan...
    
    
    ( Finally leaving the prison behind, Calintz end up in place that looks like  )
    ( a huge garden.                                                              )
    Calintz: Where the hell am I?
    
    ( ...the sound of someone walking near can be heard and Calintz hides away    )
    ( in a nearby bush.                                                           )
    Amila:   Who goes there? How dare you enter the Queen’s garden?
    
    ( Realizing, who the person in the garden is, with a stern expression,        )
    ( Calintz starts to walk towards the Queen.                                   )
    Amila:   Ca-Calintz!? Why are you here!?
    
    Calintz: so, I finally get to meet the Queen.
    
    Amila:   No! Why are you here!?
    
    ( Calintz hold his sword towards Amila...)
    Amila:   Wait! I don’t wanna fight you!
    
    (...He strikes down with his sword, but before the attack, Amila falls back.)
    Calintz: If I kill you, the war will end. No on will have
             to suffer once you’re dead.
    
    ( He’s ready to attack Amila, when Orha’s familiar, the large Raven appears   )
    ( between them and attacks Calintz.
    Calintz: Ah! Ugh!
    
    ( And a few seconds later Orha appears.                                       )
    Orha:    You are safe now, Your Highness. The traitors,
             who have started the rebellion have been eliminated.
             There’s nothing to worry about, anymore.
    
    ( After a few attacks on Orha, he summons his familiar. After the short fight )
    ( with the birdie...                                                          )
    Calintz: No! We need to retreat!

    Chris:   *sigh* I may be a genius, but there’s only 
             so much I can take.
    
    Haren:   Now’s not the time for jokes!
             We just let Calintz walk right into
             the hands of the enemy!
    
    Azel:    Let’s hurry and save the Captain!
    
    Rianna:  That’s what we’re trying to figure out.
             If you have time to complain, then why
             don’t ya come up with some ideas.
    
    Eonis:   But, it won’t be easy. We have both the
             Yason and Amabat to worry about.
    
    Chris:   Let’s just ask Agreian for help.
    
    Haren:   What are we gonna say? “Calintz is in trouble.
             Please launch an attack on Yason-Roven.”
    
    Raul:    That’s great idea.
    
    Haren:   Huh?
    
    Raul:    There IS a way to attack Yason-Roven...
    
    Haren:   Hey, Chris...
    
    Chris:   Oh, no... What now?
    
    Haren:   Go toss this lunatic off a cliff.
    
    Raul:    If you do that, then you won’t have anyone
             to show you the way. I’ve snuck into
             Yason-Roven before, you know.
    
    Rianna:  That’s suicide. The border between Garute 
             and Yason-Roven is a war zone! 
             Just getting close to that is impossible!
    
    Raul:    Who said anything about crossing a battlefield?
             We’ll be crossing The Grayton Mountains.
             Last time I went, there was still a path.
    
    Chris:   Question: how long ago was that, exactly?
    
    Raul:    Hmm... Let’s see... About 50 years ago.
    
    Justina: 50 years ago? Do you mean the same route 
             The Eight Heroes took!
    
    Raul:    That’s right! Like the young lady said, the
             original expedition followed that path.
             Three of us were on the verge of death
             by the time we finished, so... I estimate that
             about half of us will survive this time around.
    
    Haren:   Half!? Boy, things are really looking up.
    
    Reith:   Well, I’m going.
             Calintz has always been there to save me.
             Now, it’s my turn to save him.
    
    Rianna:  Reith, the mountains are more dangerous than
             you think. All that climbing will be hell, but it’s 
             nothing compared to the monsters up there.
             No one ever bothers to guard that route.
    
    Raul:    That’s why we were able to sneak in.
             But, I have to admit, it was pretty rough.
    
    Reith:   I’m still going.
    
    Azel:    Me, too! We have to save the Captain.
             As long as we stick together, I know 
             we can make it!
    
    Haren:   It ain’t that easy, kid... Ah, screw it! I’ll go, too.
    
    Raul:    Through the mountains, it’s a straight ship to
             Epentar. We’ll have to force out way through,
             of course.
    
    Reith:   I’m going to save Calintz, no matter what.
    
    Haren:   Knowing him, he’s probably not waiting for help.
             But, I uses we could surprise him, for once.
    
    Raul:    Alright, but remember to keep your eyes peeled, 
             everyone. It’s a long road to Epentar.
    
    Chris:   That doesn’t sound like much fun.

    ( Right after entering the area of Grayton Mountains...)
    Raul:   Oh... These guys!?
    
    Azel:   Do you know them Raul?
    
    Raul:   They use the same style as I do.
    
    Azel:   Ohh... So, they’re your friends?
    
    Raul:   Well, yeah... I heard a rumor that one of my
            students opened a dojo...
    
    Rianna: One of your students opened a dojo? ...Wait, 
            how old were you when you were teaching?
    
    Raul:   Anyways... Azel, why don’t you try out this dojo?
    
    Azel:   Me? I’m not skilled enough yet.
            Anyways, your style is too difficult.
    
    Raul:   Nonsense. If you know the enemy and know
            yourself, in a hundred battle you will not be
            defeated.
            Yes, the Tenmei Keishin Style is difficult, 
            but you do know that is uses the 
            Chi if Wind and the Chi of Celestial, don’t you?
            And your Ryusei Ikko Style uses Counter Mode,
            doesn’t it?
    
    Azel:   Oh yeah! That’s right.
    
    Raul:   Regardless of your enemy’s strength, if you
            know what Chi to use, you’ll always have the
            advantage. Good luck!
    
    
    
    ( A few steps later, near the save point...)
    Rianna: So, this is it, huh...
    
    Chris:  Not only it is all uphill, but there are monsters along the way...
            I have a bad feeling about this.
    
    Haren:  Then, just go home!
    
    Raul:   Having second thoughts even before we’ve started?
            Don’t worry, once you’ve made it through here, 
            you’ll know the true meaning of hardship.
    
    Chris:  Hey, you don’t have to scare us like that.
    
    Raul:  Scare you? I’m just being honest.
           Reith, are you sure you’re ready to face that mountain?
    
    Reith: I’m positive. Calintz is waiting for me.
    
    
    
    Raul:  There’s one thing I need to tell you all before
           we start.
    
    Haren: What’s that? When we break for lunch?
    
    Raul:  ...What do you think this is, a day in the park?
           Anyway, there’s a monster in these mountains
           known as the Stone Golem.
           Back then, it nearly killed us. I suggest we try to 
           avoid it, if it’s still around.
    
    Azel:  What does it look like?
    
    Raul:  It’s big, with blue and white skins that as though 
           as leather. Not only that, but its fists feel like 
           they’re made of stone.
    
    Azel:  I-I see... We should probably stay away
           from it, then.
    
    
    ( At the second part of the mountain, right before the house)
    Chris:   Ooooh! Look at that cozy little cabin
             waiting for us! This is gonna be great!
    
    Haren:   Man, do you ever shut up?
    
    Chris:   Well, everybody looked so tired, 
             I thought I’d cheer you up!
    
    Haren:   You know what would cheer me up?
             ...If you shut up for a change.
    
    Rianna:  All this yelling is making my head hurt.
    
    Raul:    Hahaha... I see you’re all making the best
             of the situation.
    
    Rianna:  The other seven heroes aren’t as annoying
             as you, are they?
    
    Justina: Are you alright, Reith? Do you need to rest?
    
    Reith:   I wonder if Calintz is okay...
    
    Justina: I don’t know... The Yason don’t take
             kindly to humans.
    
    Reith:   I was always a burden to Calintz...
             But now, maybe I can change that.
    
    
    ( Not fat from the house, near the exit from the area...)
    ( Everyone looks extremely tired, when after climbing the mountain they stop.)
    Chris:  *huff* Hey, guys... I just *huff* realized something
            really important.
    
    Haren:  Shut up! We’re finally done climbing; I don’t wanna hear it.
    
    Rianna: Yeah! You never have anything good to say!
    
    Chris:  While we were climbing, I was thinking... 
            Once we save Calintz... We have to climb
            this mountain all over again, won’t we?
    
    Rianna: Aww... Dammit!
    
    Haren:  You made me picture it! That’s why I told you to shut up!
    
    
    Eonis:   Well... We’re in Yason territory, now, so we better get serious.
    
    Raul:    Our lives are on the line, so stay alert.
    
    ( Reith is holding her head and shaking it...)
    Reith:   Ah...!
    
    Rianna:  What’s wrong!? Reith, are you okay?
    
    Reith:   My memory’s... coming back...
    ( Black and white pictures of the place, that looks like the one she saw in   )
    ( the memory of Involk Castle.                                                )
    
    Justina: Reith, what’s the matter? Does it hurt?
    
    Reith:   No, I’m fine... Sorry... Everyone... I’m sorry...

    Blast Worm1: Humans? Where’s they come from?
    
    Blast Worm2: Damn them. They found a new way in!?
    
    Haren:       I see they sent the welcome wagon.
    
    Chris:       Hey, why don’t you guys take off your armor
                 and cool down for a bit? It must be hot in there.
    
    Rianna:      Is there something wrong with you?
                 How can you joke at a time like this?
    
    ( fight with 3 Blast Worms)
    
    
    ( Almost at the end of the area...)
    Haren:   Wha! What the hell’s this!?
    
    ( On the ground, there are half-petrified Yasons lying.)
    Justina: Is this... the disease they call Rheuma?
    
    Rianna:  I can’t believe it... This is horrible.
    
    Raul:    It’s getting worse every year...
             Take a good look... This is the fate of the Yason
             who have lost their source of Chi.
             This is the misery The Eight Heroes caused when
             we stole the Light of Salvation.
             The Yason are dying, but humans are hurtling themselves 
             towards extinction with even greater force.
    
    Justina: This is too cruel, this fate.
    
    Reith:   Ugh... My head... 
    
    Rianna:  Is your memory coming back again? Are you okay?
    
    Reith:   I feel better, now. Don’t worry.
    
    Raul:    Let’s go. Our presence is only causing 
             these poor Yason more pain.
    
    
    ( A few steps later, at the end of the area, they meet with other Blast Worms)
    Blast Worm1: Humans!
    
    Blast Worm2: The report was true! They found a new way in!

             fight?

             Oh, no! Where’d she go!?
    
    Justina: What!? She was right behind me...
    
    Raul:    This isn’t good. We’re in the heart of the enemy’s territory.
    
    Rianna:  Reith! REITH!!
    
    Justina: What should we do...?
    
    
    ( Reith is walking around in Epentar...)
    Reith:       No... I’ve got to find Calintz... Stay away...
    
    ( ...until she ends up in the same place she saw in her memory. There are     )
    ( 4 Blast Worms, practicing. They notice Reith and suddenly the glowing orb   )
    ( appears, the same that appeared every time when Reith got back some of her  )
    ( memory...
    ( In the same place, where she ended up is Azhadi, Roxy, Carian and Orha      )
    ( watching Queen Amila and her familiar, the Phoenix. The triangle mask on    )
    ( Amila’s face slowly disappears, revealing that Reith IS Amila.              )
    ( Amila strikes down with her weapon, creating the barrier around Epentar,    )
    ( which reflected the Forbidden Magic. After this, she somehow ended in the   )
    ( cave, where she changed her dress to the yellow one she found there,        )
    ( leaving her Amila dress behind.                                             )
    
    Reith:       I see... So, that’s how it is...
    
    
    Blast Worm1: What the hell was that? There was a flash of light!
    
    Blast Worm2: It’s human. Kill her!
    
    ( Surrounded by the Blast Worms, Reith summons the Phoenix. )
    Reith:          You fools... Who are you pointing those swords at?
    (Amila’s voice) Do you not recognize me?
    
    ( Orha comes, and kneels down before Reith. After him, all the Blast Worms do )
    ( the same.                                                                   )
    Orha:        I have been waiting for you, Your Highness.
                 Did you enjoy your journey?
    
    Reith:       ( In Amila’s voice) Journey... Yes, it was such a sad journey.
                 It’s unfortunate... but, I must forget it.
    
    
    ( Back at Raul’s party, Rianna is still searching for Reith...)
    Rianna:  Reith! Where are you!?
    
    Raul:    Forget it. We’re smack dab in the middle of Epentar.
             We’ll never find her.
    
    Rianna:  You’re not just gonna give up, are you?
    
    Azel:    We still haven’t found the Captain, either.
    
    ( With that said, a familiar looking person shows up...)
    Calintz: You guys... 
             What are you doing here?
    
    Azel:    Captain! Thank god you’re alive!
    
    Calintz: It’s dangerous for you here...
    
    Rianna:  What? Not even a thank you?
    
    Raul:    Hey, aren’t we forgetting something?
    
    Calintz: And what’s that?
    
    Eonis:   Reith wandered off while we were fighting.
    
    Calintz: She what...!? You mean, she’s lost in Epentar!?
             What the hell were you doing!?
    
    Rianna:  Y’ know what we were doing!? ...Tryin’ to save
             your ass, that’s what! Almost got killed, too!
             ...And this is the thanks we get?

    Calintz: This is the third time today. 
             I’m getting tired of your face.
    
    Orha:    I’m not any happier to see you.
    
    Calintz: Where’s Reith?
    
    Orha:    I don’t know. Why do you care so much?
    
    Calintz: If you so much as touch her, you won’t 
             live to see another day. Got it?
    
    Orha:    Control your temper, or it will control you.
    
    ( Fight with Orha’s Raven. Once it is killed, Orha attacks them, but it’s soon )

    In the cave, Calintz, after waking up, grabs his sword...
    Calintz: Who’s there!?
    
    
    Girl:    Reith...?
    
    ...holding Calintz’s hand, Reith gets from the ground...
    Reith:   Okay, Calintz.
    
    
    ...Reith steps in Orha’s way, her arms stretched out, to protect Calintz...
    ...Calintz drags Reith to the ledge and they jump off the cliff...
    
    
    
    Reith:   What’s wrong with you all? They’re not Yason.
             They’re humans! Don’t you get it!?
    
    ...Calintz strikes down with his sword, a clashing sound can be heard...
    
    
    ... Reith runs to Calintz, who hugs Reith. 
    Reith:   ...Thank you.
    
    
    *** End of flashback ***
    
    
    Calintz: *sigh*
    
    Eonis:   Calintz...
    
    Raul:    We can’t just sit here and do nothing...
             Reith is probably still alive. But, considering how 
             desperate they were to find her, I’m starting to
             think she may be one of them.
    
    Calintz: ...You’re saying she’s a Yason?
    
    Raul:    Since The Four Warriors themselves
             were after her, I’d say she was
             someone important, too.
    
    Haren:   A Yason?
    
    Raul:    Should we continue to search for her?
    
    Azel:    Captain...
    
    Raul:    Let’s consider out option... Maybe we should
             concentrate on finding Neikan, since he’s
             the leader of the Dark Yason.
             I assure you, the Dark Yason will not be content
             with getting revenge on The Eight Heroes... They
             seek to destroy all of Efferia and Yason-Roven.
    
    Haren:   How ‘bout we go check out that cavern again.
             Maybe we’ll find the stolen shard.
    
    Raul:    Listen carefully... Stop collecting the shards.
             No matter how noble his intentions, 
             General Agreian won’t be able to overcome
             the Light of Salvation’s influence.
    
    Eonis:   Is it true that the Light of Salvation
             takes control of a person’s mind?
    
    Raul:    *sigh* The Light of Salvation haunts its victims
             with recurring nightmares, driving them to
             collect the remaining shards.
             I hid the Celestial shard to escape its nightmares.
             It’s amazing that Elaine was able to protect her 
             shard for so many years and still keep her sanity. 
             Can you believe that even Joshua succumbed
             to the temptation of the Light of Salvation?
             He attacked me to steal my shard.
             It’s ironic... A priest famous for his gentleness
             was the first one to crack. 
             If you continue to collect the shards for Agreian,
             you’ll start to notice a transformation.
             But by then, it’ll be too late.
             You can’t let that happen, Calintz. 
             I’ll go retrieve the Celestial Shard.
             Let’s meet at Orbonne Woods.

    ( Approaching the Communication Sphere)
    Agreian: Are you okay, there?
    
    Calintz: Yeah, don’t worry. I’m close to unmasking
             the leader of the Dark Yason.
    
    Agreian: If you find out who it is, contact me immediately.
             Who knows what they’re up to? And if things
             get ugly, pull out. I don’t want you getting hurt.
             You still have to save Reith, right?
    
    Calintz: Yeah. And, Raul has volunteered to retrieve
             the Celestial shard.
    
    Agreian: That would make sense, since he’s the one 
             who hid it. So, where did he say it was?
    
    Calintz: Not far from Amabat, actually.
             ...somewhere on Mt. Sekreit.
    
    Agreian: I see...
    
    Calintz: Raul had one other thing to say about
             the Light of Salvation...Apparently, it has
             a will of its own, and can even take control
             of a person’s mind. Even Joshua, one of
             The Eight Heroes wasn’t strong enough to
             resist it...
    
    Agreian: So I’ve heard.
    
    Calintz: You knew? Then, why are you - ?
    
    Agreian: To end the war.
    
    Calintz: You’re willing to take that risk!?
    
    Agreian: If something should happen to me, then please
             see it through to the end.
    
    Calintz: Hugo... Are you crazy!?
    
    Agreian: I can’t turn back, now. Too many lives have
             already been lost. We’ve put our own lives
             on the line, too, haven’t we?
    
    Calintz: But, I doubt Raul will just hand over the shard...
             He did warn us, after all. He might even be
             thinking of disappearing with it.
    
    Agreian: Leave Raul to me. I’ll convince him.
    
    
    ( Meanwhile in Epentar)
    Chief Seryun: Excuse me, Your Highness. But, there is 
                  something that I just do not understand. 
                  Why were you up north, at a time like this...?
    
    Amila:        How many times must I explain it?
                  Chief of the Seryun, you have become
                  quite insistent since we last spoke.
    
    Chief Seryun: I-I beg your pardon.
    
    Chief Kiasa:  We’re just glad that you returned safely,
                  Your Majesty.
    
    Amila:        Thank you. I have observed the people of
                  the north, and have discovered a feasible
                  way to end the war. 
                  There’s no need to fear. Just to as I command.
    
    
    ( In Amila’s room, she’s sitting by her desk, while Orha is standing in front )
    ( of it, waiting for the Queen’s order.                                       )
    Amila: Let me hear your report on the Dark Yason.
    
    Orha:  They fled to Efferia, where they established a new
           base of operations. Since they look like humans,
           they’ve encountered few obstacles.
           The leader of the Dark Yason is Neikan.
           We believe he’s gathered information
           through his connection in the Alliance.
           Unfortunately... it seems that there was
           a spy within the Yason as well.
    
    Amila: I see.
    
    ( She takes up a letter from the desk, which has a red seal at the bottom.)
    Amila: What is this red crest?
    
    Orha:  It’s the crest of the Dark Yason. It is intended
           to symbolize their hunger for revenge.
    
    Amila: ...Orha.
    
    Orha:  Yes, Your Highness.
    
    Amila: Can you find out more about the Great Priestess Ladrinne?
           I want to know everything there is to know...
    
    Orha:  Your highness, I beg your pardon, but...
    
    Amila: Don’t ask; just learn all that you can.
    
    Orha:  I understand, Your Highness.
    
    
    ( In the throne room...)
    Roxy:   Are you suggesting that we destroy 
            the Light of Salvation? Forgive me,
            Your Highness, but that’s...
    
    Amila:  Don’t worry, I’m still sane.
            During my time in Efferia, I learned many things. 
            You think without the Light of Salvation,
            the Yason are doomed, don’t you?
            But, our people will rise again.
            The next generation will be born 
            free of the restraints of the Vindi.
    
    Carian: But... What will happen to us? Rheuma is
            already spreading within the Blast Worms.
            If we don’t revive the Tree of Light...
    
    Amila:  The Light of Salvation will always pose a threat
            if it falls into the wrong hands. 
            This it the only way to guarantee our safety.
            Besides, some Yason have already begun to
            show signs of resistance, have they not? 
            Please have faith in me. Yason-Roven will once
            again become the paradise it used to be.
    
    Orha:   I beg your pardon, Your Highness, but the plan
            involves a certain element of risk.
            If the humans were to attack after the Tree of
            Light is dead, then what will happen?
    
    Azhadi: That’s right... Your Majesty, it’s too dangerous.
    
    Amila:  I don’t have time to convince you...
            We must recover the Light of Salvation
            as soon as possible.
            Make that your top priority.
    
    
    
    Amila:  One of them is a traitor... But, who...?
    
    
    ( On the world map, at Amrond Woods)
    Carian: What? You know the Queen said that...? 
            But, how?
    
    Neikan: ..........
    
    Carian: You don’t trust us, do you? But, guess what?
            We’ve already figured out who are you.
    
    Neikan: ..........
    
    Azhadi: Don’t worry. We’ll continue to play dumb. 
            The rest is up to you...
    
    Neikan: ..........
    
    
    ( On the world map, at Epentar)
    Azhadi: Can we still trust him?
    
    Carian: Who said anything about trust? This is business.
    
    Amila:  I see. So, this is how you show your loyalty? 
            By betraying your own people? 
    
    Carian: ...Your Highness.
    
    Amila:  Do you recognize this face?
    
    ( The usual triangle mask is gone, Amila or Reith’s face is normally shown.)
    Carian: It can’t be...
    
    Amila:  I thank you for your efforts. Sdei, was it...?
            The assassin’s name. Serina would have 
            never sunk to that level.
    
    Carian: You’re not even a pure Yason.
    
    Amila:  Hence, the mask. But, even worse, I was forced
            to keep my sister locked up.
            Orha, arrest these traitors. Execute them once
            the full extent of their plans is known.

    Raul:    I hid the Celestial Shard on Mt. Sekreit.
             But, I don’t know for sure that it’s still there.
    
    Justina: What do you mean?
    
    Raul:    As I was saying, the shards can take
             control of a person’s mind. 
             They want to return to the Tree of Light.
             After Joshua and Behru succumbed to their
             power, both headed to Yason-Roven.
    
    Rianna:  I still can’t believe a stupid rock has that
             much power.
    
    Raul:    Why do you think the Yason are so convinced 
             they need the Light of Salvation? Anyway,
             we should get going.
    
    
    
    ( On the world map, at Lester Woods)
    Raul:    There’s a way to get to the Celestial Ruins from 
             Mt. Selton. That’s there we should head next.

    ( A few steps later, leaving the area...)
    ( ...Raul hits Rianna on the back of the neck, who collapses. He’s already    )
    ( taken care of Justina, who’s lying not far from Rianna...                   )
    Raul: Sorry... I don’t intend to hand this over.
          The shards must never be reunited.
    
    ( Suddenly he realizes, that he’s not alone, there are 2 Turibos watching him.)
    
    ( after the fight with the Turibos)
    
    Raul: So, YOU are Neikan... Hmph. We were quite the fools.
          What do you want? Revenge? Then, just kill us heroes.
    
    ( The other person cannot be seen, only the hands, as the person starts to    )

    Serina: Why did you let me live?
    
    Amila:  You’re my little sister.
            Nothing you ever do will change that.
    
    Serina: But, what difference does it make? 
            Isn’t it our custom to confine the members of 
            the royal family?
    
    Amila:  Serina, it’s true that I had you confined.
            But, that’s because there were people 
            who were trying to use so?
    
    Serina: Really? So, you were looking out for me?
    
    Amila:  Back then, I did whatever it took to survive.
            It may not seem like it, but I was protecting you.
    
    Serina: How considerate of you. Did you enjoy your
            trip to Efferia? Are you pleased with yourself, 
            not that Calintz remembers your name?
    
    Amila:  That’s right. And now, he’s mine. Don’t be jealous.
    
    Serina: What!?
    
    Amila:  The truth is, I really am selfish. 
            I’m the one who locked you away and had
            everyone executed, so that I could be Queen. 
            I’m the one who started the war, which cost so
            may humans their lives. 
            The Ice Queen – Amila Reith Riein Zes – that’s me.
    
    
    *** Flashback ***
    Mano and a little girl are sitting in the forest...
    Girl: Geez.
    
    Mano: What?
    
    Girl: You want me to teach you? Who’s your opponent?
          I’ll train you so you can beat him in less then a month.
    
    
    Not far from them, someone is watching the two kids...
    
    
    Mano walks away, the girl stays, when someone walks to her. 
    The new person is almost identical to the girl, they even wear the same dress.
    
    They are sitting beside each other, but they aren’t talking, they aren’t even 
    looking at each other.
    
    *** End of flashback ***
    
    Serina: Stop it... I already know... You don’t have to pretend anymore.
    
    ( Amila walks to Serina, puts the arms on her shoulder.)
    Amila:  I’m sorry. I’m sure that everyone will hate me for what
            I’m going to do. But, it’s all for the sake of our people.
    
    Serina: What are you planning?
    
    Amila:  The Yason will survive. Rheuma is simply a trial
            that they must endure if we are to evolve.
    
    Serina: Are you saying my condition is curable?
    
    Amila:  That all depends on you.
    
    Serina: *sigh* What does that mean? ...Even the Blast Worms
            have been infected. It’s hopeless, now.
    
    Amila:  I don’t know of that I’ve got planned will lead to destruction
            or salvation. But, from what’ve seen if Efferia, 
            I am certain that the Yason will rise again. 
            Serina... I know I wasn’t much of a sister to you. 
            But, I promise to you this. There will come a time when
            you can once again walk freely in the sunshine, smiling. 
            That will be my last present to you, Serina.
    
    Serina: What do you mean? Can you even keep that promise?
    
    Amila:  Of course. But, I have something to ask you in return.
    
    ( She leans to Serina, and whispers something to her.)
    Serina: Why would you say that? *gasp* What are you trying to do!?
    
    Amila:  Promise me.
    
    
    ( On the world map, at the Headquarters)
    Calintz: We’re going back to the Turibo hideout. We 
             don’t want the same thing to happen again,
             so let’s assess the situation once we arrive.
    
    Haren:   No matter how many of ‘em are waiting, 
             I’ll take care of it.

    Azel:    That can’t be. We’ve been careful.
             There’s no way they could have known...
    
    Calintz: ...But, they could have guessed. 
             They burned everything important.
             There’s nothing left to do here.
    
    
    ( After leaving the cave)
    Turibo:  So, I was told correctly.
    
    Calintz: ...By who?
    
    Turibo:  I’m only here to deliver a message:
             bring the Ice Shard from The Great
             Temple of Amabat to Astine March.
    
    Haren:   Ha! Ya think we’d listen to you?
    
    Turibo:  The Great Priestess’s life... is at stake.
    
    Calintz: What?
    
    Turibo:  You wouldn’t want to be framed for
             Ladrinne’s assassination, would you?
    
    Haren:   You bastard!
    
    Turibo:  The shard is in the back of the temple.
             The door can only be opened by you, Calintz.
    
    
    
    Calintz: I’m going to the Great Temple. You guys 
             meet up with Raul.
    
    Azel:    But Captain, is it safe for you to go by yourself?
    
    Calintz: Explain the situation to Raul. Maybe he’ll
             have an idea.
    
    Chris:   You’re not going alone. If you get caught, 
             then we’ll really be screwed. Besides,
             we’re a team; you can’t ditch us, now.
    
    Eonis:   That’s right, Mistress Ladrinne is in trouble,
             so we’re coming with you.
             We’ve got to find the Ice Shard if we’re
             going to have any chance of saving her.
             ...Of course, we won’t just hand it over.

             ...I don’t buy it.
    
    Calintz: Where is she?
    
    Cleric:  ...She left the temple. But, that’s not common
             knowledge. In fact, they’re keeping it very quiet.
             There’s even a double...
    
    Calintz: A fake wouldn’t fool the Dark Yason.
             ( She left the temple...? What’s going on, here?
             What kind of spy would have access to such
             secret information?)

    Chris:   Hmmmph... Uaa... It won’t budge.
             Is this really a door? It must be locked from the inside.
    
    Eonis:   He said that only Calintz would be able to open it.
             I wonder if that’s true...
             Well?
    
    ( Calintz goes to the door, touches the door, which opens.)
    Azel:    Whoa, it opened on its own!
    
    Calintz: Let’s go.
    
    
    ( Inside the room)
    Azel:    That’s definitely the Ice Shard.
    ( The large symbol appears, along with the guardian of the shard)
    Calintz: So, you’re going to test me to see if
             I’m worthy of possessing you?

    ( leaving the room, at the main part of the temple)
    Cleric:  It’s Calintz! Capture him!
    
    Calintz: There’s too many clerics around here!
             Let’s hide in Mistress Ladrinne’s room!
    
    
    ( If the go to the back of the temple, where the teleport circle was)
    Eonis:   The circle’s gone... We can’t get to
             Mistress Ladrinne’s room from here.
    
    Calintz: We need to take the stairs.
    
    
    ( Going through the door on the right, which wasn’t there before, and after   )
    ( going up-up-up-up-up on the stairs, the party ends up on the first floor,   )
    ( in front of Mistress Ladrinne’s room.                                       )
    
    ( In Mistress Ladrinne’s room)
    Azel:    This is it.
    
    Calintz: We’ll wait here until it’s safe to leave.
    
    
    ( If they try to leave now)
    Calintz: I still hear voices. Let’s wait a while longer.
    
    
    ( Going a few steps towards the end of the room...)
    ( ...Calintz notices on the floor a bracelet...)
    Eonis:   What’s wrong?
    
    Calintz: I gave him this... No, it’s a different color.
    
    
    *** Flashback ***
    Hugo: That’s important for you, isn’t it?
          You can give me something else.
    
    Mano: No... You can have it, Hugo. 
          You’re giving me your most treasured possession.
    
    Hugo: Thanks, I’ll take good care of it.
          We’ll always be friends, Mano.
    
    The kids are standing, holding out their treasures in their hands towards
    the other: Hugo, the knife and Mano, the bracelet.
    
    *** End of flashback ***
    
    Calintz: What it this... Hugo?
    
    Eonis:   Calintz, what’s wrong?
    
    Calintz: Oh, it’s nothing. We better get to Astine Marsh.

    ( Right after they leave Mistress Ladrinne’s room...)
    ( ...Meanwhile, near the center part of Lake Astine, Mistress Ladrinne,       )
    ( accompanied by two priestesses, is walking towards 2 Blast Worms.           )
    Ladrinne:   Where is she...?
    
    Blast Worm: I’m sorry, but please come with us. It’s Her Majesty’s orders.
                Don’t worry, you won’t be harmed.
    
    Agreian:    That’s a sorry excuse for a kidnapping...
    
    Ladrinne:   Agreian!? Why are you here?
    
    Agreian:    Stay where you are, Mother. You’ve been tricked.
                How could you believe such an obvious lie?
    
    Ladrinne:   But, they said...
    
    Blast Worm: So, you’ve General Agreian? We already know about – Ugh...
    
    ( The Blast Worm cannot finish the sentence, due to a hit on his head by a    )

    Cleric:     Insolent dog. How dare you...
    
    Ladrinne:   Please, wait. Let them finish...
    
    Agreian:    Mother, they are Yason. How can you believe them?

    Calintz: I’m going in alone.
    
    Haren:   Are you crazy?
    
    Calintz: We don’t know what the situation is over there.
             If things heat up, I’ll send a signal. 
             But, if I’m not back in an hour, then go meet up with Raul.
             If we all get caught, that’ll endanger the others, too.
    
    Azel:    I understand, Captain. But, if you run into trouble, 
             please send the signal. We’ll come right away.
    
    Calintz: Thank you.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    ( Calintz is walking at the middle section of the area of Lake Astine, where  )
    ( there are 2 clerics, guarding Mistress Ladrinne.                            )
    Cleric:   *gasp* The Tears of Blood!
    
    Ladrinne: Please, wait.
              Calintz, I’m glad to see that you’re safe.
              How did you know I was here?
    
    Calintz:  Huh? Mistress Ladrinne... I thought you were kidnapped...
    
    Ladrinne: Is something wrong?
    
    Agreian:  Calintz.
    
    ( Suddenly General Agreian appears and walks to Calintz.)
    Calintz:  They said they had Mistress Ladrinne captive.
              They asked me to bring the Ice Shard...
              So I snuck into the Great Temple.
    
    Agreian:  And you obtained the shard?
    
    Calintz:  Yeah, but I had to steal it.
              ...It seems we were tricked.
    
    Agreian:  Leave it to me. I’ll handle it.
    
    ( Calintz holds out his hand, with the Ice Shard on it. Agreian reached for   )
    ( it, when...                                                                 )
    Amila:    No! Don’t give it to him...!
    
    Calintz:  Amila...
    
    Ladrinne: What are you doing!?
    
    
    ( Calintz looks at Mistress Ladrinne, who’s guarded by no longer the clerics, )
    ( but by 2 Turibos, sword at hand.                                            )
    
    
    Calintz:  Hugo...? What’s going on?
    
    Agreian:  I commend you for your efforts, Calintz.
              I knew that only you would be able to obtain this shard.
              ...You, who have the power of the Great Priestess within him.
    
    Calintz:  Hugo... Did you know all along?
              That Mistress Ladrinne had a similar bracelet...
              Or, was it just coincidence?
    
    Agreian:  *chuckle* This bracelet allowed me to become “Agreian”.
              It’s the only thing that could be used to identify 
              the Great Priestess’s son.
    
    Ladrinne: Agreian?
    
    Agreian:  Oh, yes. Mother, allow me to introduce someone.
              This is Agreian.
    
    Ladrinne: What do you mean? You had that bracelet...
    
    Calintz:  That bracelet... was originally mine.
    
    Ladrinne: What?
    
    Calintz:  Agreian... So... You’re Neikan...
    
    Agreian:  *chuckle*
    
    ( The 2 Turibos turn their swords to Mistress Ladrinne...)
    Calintz:  Mistress Ladrinne!
    
    Agreian:  I thought I ordered you to collect all of the shards?
              Shouldn’t you complete your mission?
              I already have the Celestial Shard.
              All I need now is the Earth Shard.
              Can you bring it to me? You wouldn’t want to part with your
              long lost mother, would you?
    
    ( Calintz looks at the bridge, where Amila is standing, wearing the Earth     )
    ( Shard on her dress.                                                         )
    Calintz:  Prepare yourself, Amila.
    
    
    Calintz:  You’re the cause of this war. If you didn’t exist...
              then none of this would’ve happened.
    
    Amila:    ...That’s absurd.
    
    Calintz:  Yeah, right.
    
    Amila:    Does it make you feel better to put the blame
              on others?
    
    
    ( During the fight with Amila, after Calintz damages her)
    Calintz:  Are you mocking me? C’mon and fight!
    
    Amila:    I... Very well, then. I won’t hold back.
    
    
    ( After the fight)
    Amila:    W-Wait... I... I...
    
    Calintz:  Are you afraid of death!? Do you know how many humans
              died in this war...? You have no right to beg for your life!!
    
    ( Calintz attacks Amila. The attack doesn’t hurt her, but she falls onto the  )
    ( ground. And due to the attack, her mask falls off, revealing the face of... )
    Calintz:  Reith...?
    
    Amila:    I’m sorry, Calintz.
    
    Calintz:  But, why...?
    
    Agreian:  Bring me the Earth Shard, Calintz!
    
    ( Calintz walks to Amila...)
    Amila:    Calintz...
              Please... Do it for me...........
    
    (...Calintz takes up the shards from the ground, and throws it at feet of     )
    ( General Agreian.                                                            )
    Agreian:  I thank you for your loyalty and hard work, Calintz.
    
    Ladrinne: So, it was you who was after the Light of Salvation.
    
    Agreian:  But, wouldn’t you agree that I place a convincing son, 
              Mother?
    
    Ladrinne: Don’t ever call me that again!
    
    Agreian:  Well, no need to worry. You’ll be much happier with your true
              son in the afterlife...
    
    
    ( General Agreian and the 2 Turibos disappear from the area...                )
    ( ...Just in time, because he started some kind of magic – from the water and )
    ( also from the ground, jets of flame are going upwards, which creates a      )
    ( a barrier around the middle section of Lake Astine.                         )
    Ladrinne: How could you!?
    
    Orha:     Your Highness!
    
    ( Orha tries to go to Amila, but stopped by the barrier, which sends him      )
    ( back, unable to go through.                                                 )
    ( Calintz startled looks around and goes to Amila, still lying on the ground  )
    ( Mistress Ladrinne starts to cast some magic, which looks similar to the     )
    ( one she did in Fuget. The large symbol appears on the sky, just as before,  )
    ( but this time, the magic shatters – she’s unable to stop what Agreian has   )
    ( has set into motion.                                                        )
    Ladrinne: Uaagh! ...Ugh.
    
    ( She collapses.)
    Calintz:  Mistress Ladrinne!
    
    ( All the upgoing flames stops, but a large flame sphere appears, falling    )
    ( down, right where they are. Amila reaches out for her mask, she puts it    )
    ( on...                                                                      )

    ( Smoke is slowly disappearing, Calintz is walking around...                  )
    Calintz:  Reith...
    
    ( He sees Mistress Ladrinne lying, but cannot be known whether she’s dead or  )
    ( just unconscious. Where once Amila stood, there are just the pieces of her  )
    ( mask...                                                                     )

    Calintz:  It didn’t matter whether you were human... or Yason...
              I promised... that I’d protect you...
    
    ( Orha in disbelief looks at the pieces of Amila’s mask, unable to accept     )
    ( that she's no more.                                                         )

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Azel:    We met up with Raul in Orbonne Woods, 
             but a rumor is circulating that the Tears of
             Blood has kidnapped the Great Priestess,
             and once again we became fugitives. 
             We managed to make our way to Emon, but...
             Raul is seriously injured, and Mistress Ladrinne
             is both mentally and physically injured from
             the ordeal.
             Rianna and Justina were speechless when they
             heard about Reith’s death, and they’ve been
             unable to sleep since then...
             It’s as if all hope died with Reith.
             Agreian attacked Epentar using the Light
             of Salvation, and now the people of Efferia
             are calling him a hero.
             The Captain has disappeared.
             But, I know he’s out there, still alive,
             and I believe in him.
    
    
    Rianna:  Well, serves you right, after whackin’ us on the
             neck...
    
             ...You were gonna take the shard and ditch us,
             weren’t you?
    
    Raul:    Sorry, but I had my reasons.
    
    Justina: The Light of Salvation... right?
    
    Raul:    It’s exactly as I feared...
             Do you understand, now...?
             Nothing good can come of it.
             50 years ago, we thought the same way you do.
             We believed that force was the only way to end
             the war, and we were willing to kill off the Yason
             entirely if necessary.
             With that attitude, it wasn’t difficult for us to
             obtain the Light of Salvation.
             I never thought that history would repeat itself...
             Now tell me what horrible things I missed
             while I was having such beautiful dreams.
             ...That’s a lot to deal with, even for Calintz.
             But, we can’t just give up, right?
    
    
    Haren:   Let’s go. There’s no point waiting.
    
    Chris:   I thought for sure he’d be back by now...
    
    Azel:    C’mon, we better go look for him.

    [ At the areas of Mabres, Efor and S. Astine Marsh there are no conversations. ]

    Azel:    Captain! So, this is where you were!
    
    ( Calintz is sitting on the ground, he’s just staring in front if himself...)

    Justina: Calintz, since that day, Mistress Ladrinne has shut her heart
             to the world. She really needs you. So... Please... Don’t give up.
    
    Chris:   Look, Calintz. If you don’t feel like talking, then you don’t
             have to. But, at least come see the Great Priestess. 
             She is your mother, after all.
    
    
    ( Still no answer at all, not even a small reaction.)
    Azel:    Captain... please, say something. Snap out of it!
    
    Haren:   Dammit, Calintz! You call yourself a leader!?
    
    
    
    Chris: At this rate it’s hopeless.
    
    Haren: Damn him! ...Wallowing in sorrow. How
           pathetic. Does he only care about himself?
           He’s supposed to be our captain... 
           I guess the Tears of Blood is really dead
           this time. 
    
    Azel:  Don’t say that, Haren. The Captain will be back,
           and he’ll be stronger than before. Just give him
           a little more time.
    
    Raul:  It seems this is something he has to work through
           on his own. A trial, of sorts.
    
    Azel:  I’m sure he’ll overcome it. We just have to
           be patient.
    
    Eonis: Azel’s right. He’s out captain. We should give
           him as much time as he needs...
    
    Raul:  Then, let’s wait for him in Emon.

    [ Officially, you never get the “switching to Orha’s party” note, but he      ]
    [ deserves his own section ^_^                                                ]
    
    ( Orha is walking in the throne room, when suddenly a Blast Worm appears...)
    Blast Worm: It’s the traitor!!
    
    Orha:       What?
    
    Blast Worm: He’s here! The traitor is here!
    
    ( 4 Blast Worms, with swords in hands, surround Orha.)
    Orha:       The Queen has passed away. 
                What is the meaning of this?
    
    Blast Worm: Silence, traitor!
    
    Orha:       Traitor...? How dare you accuse me!
    
    
    
    Blast Worm1: You helped the humans set a trap 
                 for Her Majesty! 
    
    Blast Worm2: I heard you were laughing while she was in pain!
                 What kind of sick bastard are you?
    
    Blast Worm1: He doesn’t deserve a trial! Let’s kill ‘em!
    
    Orha:        Who told you this...?
    
    Blast Worm1: You’ve got some nerve to walk in here like this!
    
    Orha:        Show some respect, before I get angry.
                 Where are the others?
                 Why haven’t they put an end to this nonsense?
                 Who’s protecting Miss Serina?
    
    Blast Worm1: Ha! That traitor!? Just as I thought!
                 He’s here to save his accomplice!
    
    Orha:        My accomplice...?
    
    Blast Worm1: She’s been conspiring with humans to steal
                 the throne. Lady Carian will execute her
                 personally.
    
    Orha:        Carian’s behind this!? It all makes sense, now.
                 She’s the one who incited the rebellion.
    
    Blast Worm1: Lady Carian will be the new queen.
                 She’s probably already dealt with the imposter.
    
    Blast Worm2: As for you... We’ll deal with you right here.
    
    Orha:        So, you’ve pledged your loyalty to her...
                 Fools...
    
    
    ( The fight with the 3 Blast Worms is quickly over...)
    Orha:        I never thought I’d have to kill soldiers who’ve
                 fought alongside me. 
                 Your Highness...
                 I will atone for this once I have escorted
                 Mistress Serina to safety.
    
    Serina:      Aaah!
    
    
    ( Hearing Serina’s cry, Orha is running to save her. At the end of the throne )
    ( room, he sees Serina on the floor, with 2 Blast Worms, who are ready to kill)
    ( her any moment.                                                             )
    Orha:        What is the meaning of this?
    
    Blast Worm1: General Orha...!
    
    Orha:        Where are you taking her?
    
    Blast Worm1: To be executed, of course.
    
    Serina:      Stop it! Let go of me!!
    
    Blast Worm1: Kill her is she resists. Those are Mistress 
                 Carian’s orders.
    
    Serina:      Why!? I haven’t done anything!
    
    Blast Worm1: Impersonating the Queen.
    
    Blast Worm1: And helping the humans assassinate her! 
                 You deserve to die twice for your crimes! 
    
    Serina:      I did what!? You’re all insane! It was YOU
                 who made me Queen!
    
    Blast Worm1: Shut up! Or, we’ll kill you right here!
    
    Orha:        Enough! Stop this force!!
    
    
    ( After the fight with the 2 Blast Worms, Orha goes to Serina and kneels down )
    ( in front of her.                                                            )
    Orha:        Are you okay?
    
    Serina:      ...Yes. ...Thank you.
    
    Carian:      You look like you’re out of your breath...
                 Are you tired already?
    
    ( Carian appears, slowly walking towards them... Orha gets up, and stands in  )
    ( front of Serina, protecting her.                                            )
    Serina:      Carian, you traitor!
    
    Carina:      Excuse me, but I believe YOU’RE the imposter,
                 here. You can stop pretending to be the Queen,
                 now.
    
    Orha:        You... knew?
    
    Carian:      Of course. But, I’m not stupid enough to fight
                 you when you’re at full strength.
    
    
    
    Orha:        Her Majesty lost her life because of your deceit.
                 Don’t you understand? Every action has consequences!
                 You cannot simply ignore the past and the future!
    
    Carian:      Still lecturing me about the future? How typical. 
                 But, how much longer will you last, in your condition?
    
    ( She throws some kind of magic attack at them, Orha tries to cover Serina,   )
    ( so that she won’t be harmed, but the attack is deflected by someone else... )
    Roxy:        Are you alright...?
    
    ( Roxy, with stretched out arms, is standing between Serina, Orha and Carian. )
    Carian:      Foolish girl. Do you want to be branded a traitor, too?
    
    Roxy:        You’re the traitor, here. You’re disloyalty makes me sick.
    
    Carian:      You like to talk, don’t you?
                 How long must we continue this idle chat?
    
    Roxy:        Orha. Take Her Highness and run.
    
    Serina:      What are you saying? We can’t just leave you here alone.
    
    Orha:        You must go. You must live on for the sake of Queen Amila.
    
    Carian:      You’re not going anywhere!
    
    Roxy:        Orha, hurry.
    
    Orha:        Roxy...
    
    Roxy:        I want you to know... I love you... And I want you to live.
                 Now, run!
    
    
    ( Orha and Serina are running out of the throne room. A Blast Worm tries to   )
    ( stop them, but he’s quickly out of the way. A little later they are stopped )
    ( by 3 Blast Worms.                                                           )
    Blast Worm:  You think you traitors can escape!?
                 Well, you won’t get past here! Seize them!
    
    Orha:        How dare you defy me? If you with to live,
                 then stand down!
    
    ( After the fight with the 3 Blast Worms)
    ( In the throne room Roxy collapses, Carian is watching her. More and more    )
    ( Blast Worms appear, silently surrounding then.                              )
    
    ( Finally escaping from Yason-Roven, Serina and Orha stop to rest – both of   )
    ( them look extremely tired.                                                  )

    Alliance Soldier: Sir, we’ve been able to turn the tides on nearly 
                      every front.
    
    Agreian:          So, the chiefs withdrew from the front lines...?
    
    Alliance Soldier: Yes, that’s correct.
                      This information has not been verified, but I
                      heard that there were some sort of rebellion
                      amongst the Yason.
    
    Agreian:          Hmph. This is more than I expected, Carian.
    
    Alliance Soldier: Huh? Excuse me, Sir?
    
    Agreian:          I could tell you... but it would mean your death.
                      So, ask at you own peril.
    
    Alliance Soldier: Yes, sir. I understand.
    
    Agreian:          The soldiers must be exhausted. 
                      Halt all operations. 
                      Regroup and secure the perimeter.
    
    Alliance Soldier: What!? But, we’re so close to defeating them...
                      Morale is high. We can still...
                      Ahhhhh!
    
    Agreian:          I’m giving the orders, here.
                      Halt all operations and secure the perimeter.
    
    Alliance Soldier: Y-Yes, sir! I’ll do it at once!
    
    Agreian:          This victory will solidify my place in the
                      Alliance.
                      But, there are still things left for the Yason to do.
                      Hmhmhm...

    ( changes to the form of a bird, with the red dot as it’s eye.                )
    ( Calintz stops for a second, slowly turns his head, but then again starts to )
    ( walk towards Fuget, not noticing anything.                                  )
    
    ( Calintz is standing in front of the main building, but he looks like as he  )
    ( is not aware of where he is. 2 soldiers appear and when they notice him     )
    ( they run to him, with swords at hand. He looks at the soldier, but it seems )
    ( that he’s not aware of them.                                                )
    Soldier 1: He’s not sane, is he?
    
    Soldier 2: Hmph... Once he’s dead, it won’t matter, will it?
    
    ( He attack Calintz, a clashing sound can be heard. )
    Soldier 1: What!?
    
    ( Out of nowhere, the phoenix appears...)
    
    Soldier 2: No way... It can’t be!
    
    Soldier 1: A phoenix!
    
    ( The bird squawks and quickly kills the 2 soldiers)
    
    
    ( The Phoenix, squawking, is flying around Calintz.)
    Calintz:   Reith... Reith... Reith...
    
    
    ( The bird starts to cast some magic... the sound of someone walking can be   )
    ( heard, and later Reith appears, walking to Calintz, in her yellow dress.    )
    ( Not far from him she stops, and she’s just standing there, smiling at him.  )
    ( Calintz runs to her, reaches out to touch her, but the image disappears...  )
    ( He looks at the Phoenix angrily...                                          )
    Calintz:   Damn you...! You killed Reith!
    
    ( He tries to attack the bird with his sword, but it quickly retaliates.      )
    Calintz:   *cough* Reith! She will come back!
               You’re lying! She’s not dead!
    
    ( The Phoenix attacks Calintz, who’s blown away. Leaning on his sword, he     )
    ( gets up, turns around and sees that images of Reith are appearing.          )
    ( The Phoenix is just hovering in the same place...)
    Calintz:   Dammit... These aren’t Reith! 
    
    ( He starts attacking the Reith images, making them disappear.)
    Calintz:   If we can’t be together... then I’ll destroy everything!
    
    ( More and more images appear... Calintz raises his sword...)
    
    
    ( Calintz collapses. The Phoenix is still hovering at the same place, but it  )
    ( starts to cast some magic on Calintz, which cures him. Surprised to see     )
    ( what’s happened, he sits up, and looks at the bird.                         )
    Calintz:   You... Why are you here? Reith is dead. 
               Doesn’t a familiar disappears along with its master? 
               How ironic... that you’re the one who saved me. 
    
    ( Suddenly, a little boy runs through the sitting Calintz. He jumps up, and   )
    ( sees a little boy, Mano and the little girl sitting on the ground.          )
    Calintz:   This is... Fuget?
               ...How it used to be.
               I remember... those days...
    
    ( Calintz looks at the little girl, who looks familiar...)
    Calintz:   Reith? That girl back then was... you?
               I can’t believe I forgot about it... I’m such an idiot!
    
    ( The image of the kids disappear, but the image of Mano and Hugo ready to    )
    ( make the change appear. Calintz strikes at the image of Hugo.               )
    Calintz:   Ha! Even if I forget everything else, I won’t forget you...
               Don’t think you’ll always have things your way.
               I’ll show you what it’s like to suffer... to lose someone
               important to you. Hugo... You’ll regret what you’ve done.

    ( Calintz is walking through Lester Woods, when he notices Orha and Serina    )
    ( standing face to face with Azhadi and 4 Blast Worms.                        )
    Azhadi:     It’s been a while. I’ve missed you.
    
    Orha:       So... You’re a traitor after all!
    
    Azhadi:     I’ve always wanted to take you on.
                Now, let’s see who the strongest of The Four Warrior really is.
    
    ( One of the Blast Worms is blown away by an attack by Orha.)
    Orha:       What a shame. If I’d aimed more carefully, 
                your disgraceful file would be over.
    
    Azhadi:     You bastard...! Get ‘em!
    
    ( A Blast Worm lifts his sword, ready to attack...)
    Orha:        Don’t lay a finger on her! She’s the Queen’s sister.
    
    Azhadi:      The Queen? As you living in a fantasy world?
                 Yason-Roven has no queen! The throne is empty!
                 Now, let’s begin the inquisition! 
    
    Orha:        You mongrel.
    
    ( While Orha is occupied with Azhadi, one of the Blast Worms attacks Serina.)
    Serina:      Ahhhhhhhh! Orha!
    
    ( Orha turns to Serina...)
    Orha:        Miss Serina. Ugh!
    
    ( ...but he had turned his back on Azhadi, who right away attacked Orha.)
    Azhadi:      Hey, now... Don’t turn your back on the great Azhadi.
                 I guess it was all just speculation that you’re the strongest,
                 huh, Orha?
    
    ( Another Blast Worm falls onto the ground, injured, but this time, it’s due  )
    ( to Calintz’s attack.                                                        )
    Calintz:    If you’re bored, I’d be happy to join in.
    
    Blast Worm: Ca-Calintz! I know him. He’s the Captain of the Tears of Blood!
    
    Serina:     Ca-Calintz!?
    
    Azhadi:     Get rid of him! Once and for all!
    
    ( When Azhadi’s HP drops below 50%)
    Orha:       ...Go. Leave here.
    
    Calintz:    What?
    
    Orha:       Take care of... Miss Serina.
    
    Calintz:    Is that something you wanna ask your enemy?
    
    Orha:       It’s Her Majesty’s... I mean, Miss Reith’s...
                only sister.
                That’s why... I’m asking you.
    
    Calintz:    Reith...
    
    Serina:     What do you mean?
                Why aren’t you coming with us?
    
    Azhadi:     Are you going to run? Go ahead, be my guest.
                Muhahahaha.
    
    Orha:       I ask you for the Queen’s sake.
                Remember, she sacrificed her life to save you...
    
    Calintz:    ..........
                ...Come with me.
    
    Serina:     Wait... What about...?
    
    Calintz:    I said come with me! You wanna die here?
    
    Orha:       Be careful, my lady. I’ll follow you as soon as I can.
    
    Serina:     If that turns out to be a lie, then I’ll never forgive
                you.
    
    
    |                       Serina joined Calintz’s party.                        |
    
    ( Near the exit to the next section of Lester Woods)
    ( ...Calintz and Serina are running, Calintz is pulling Serina by her hand... )
    ( ...the Blast Worms are closing in on Orha, who readies himself to attack... )
    Orha: If I had just reached out to Her Majesty, 
          then maybe I could have saved her.
    
    ( ... Orha summons her Raven, which quickly finishes the Blast Worms...       )
    ( ...Azhadi and Orha are fighting...                                          )
    ( ...Calintz and Serina, safe from Azhadi stop to rest. Serina looks to the   )
    ( the direction they came from, worried about Orha...                         )
    ( ...bird feathers... dead Blast Worms... and someone is walking away...      )
    
    
    ( At the place, where Serina and Calintz stopped, he’s sitting on the ground, )
    ( while Serina is walking around, worried about Orha.                         )
    Calintz: I’m telling you now, I don’t want to be friends with you.
    
    Serina:  I can see that.
    
    Calintz: Maybe you’ve forgotten, but I’ll refresh your memory.
             You attacked out Headquarters. Many of my comrades
             were killed, including Lehas.
    
    Serina:  But, that was...
    
    Calintz: It’s impossible for us to be friends.
    
    Serina:  I’m sorry...
    
    ( Calintz get up, starts to walk away. Serina is looking at after him, and    )
    ( where he was sitting appears the image of Amila.                            )
    Amila:   If something happens to me... Take care of Calintz... Please.
    
    Calintz: (When I look at Serina... she reminds me of Reith.)
    
    
    ( On the world map, at Lester Woods)
    Calintz: We’re being chased by humans and the Yason.
             Our only option is Emon, the Garden of Light.
             If the others are smart, they’ll be already there.
    
    ( Through the world map, they are taken to Mabres.                            )

    Calintz: He sacrificed himself for your sake.
             Didn’t you realize that?
    
    Serina:  Why didn’t you tell me!?
    
    Calintz: We don’t have time for this...
    
    Serina:  How can you say that!? He might be an enemy
             to you, but he saved my life!
    
    Calintz: So, what? You want me to say that the Yason
             aren’t so bad after all?
    
    Serina:  You loved my sister. Did you start hating her
             once you found out she was a Yason?
    
    Calintz: ..........
    
    Serina:  You were always more interested in Reith
             than me. You’ve even mistaken me for her...
    
    Calintz: Stop talking about her.
    
    Serina:  You’re running away?
    
    Calintz: This isn’t the time or the place for this.
             I have to find my comrades...

    Azel:    Captain...? Captain, you’re alright!
    
    Calintz: I’m glad you’re safe too, Azel.
    
    Azel:    Are you back to your old self again?
    
    Calintz: Yeah. I’m sorry about before.
             But, I’m no longer confused.
    
    Eonis:   Calintz! I’m so glad to see you! 
             We were all so worried.
    
    Haren:   So, you’re finally back. And who’s that with you?
    
    Chris:   Seems like every time you disappear,
             you show up with a new girl!
    
    Calintz: ...I need to talk to you all.
    
    
    
    ( In the village chief’s house)
    Haren:   Are you serious? You just want me to forget
             about everything she’s done?
    
    Calintz: She’s been wrongly accused. Besides, she’s not
             the Queen anymore, and the Yason are after her, now.
    
    Eonis:   Well, that doesn’t change the fact that she was the
             reigning Queen for a while. 
             But, at the same time, I can understand how she
             must feel after that happened to Reith.
    
    Justina: Even if you can sympathize with her, it doesn’t
             mean we should forgive her.
             How many people do you think died because of
             her orders?
    
    Calintz: She’s a victim, too, you know.
             She was used, then discarded.
             Thanks to Hugo, I know how it feels.
    
    Justina: ..........
    
    Raul:    I say we accept her.
    
    Justina: What?
    
    Raul:    She’s Reith’s sister. 
             Before Reith got her memory back, she was
             our friend, We didn’t know her as Queen Amila,
             we just know her as Reith. 
             If she was still alive, she’s want us to help her
             one and only sister... That’s what I think.
    
    Rianna:  ...I agree. Astal was part Yason, but to me,
             he was just Astal. Nothing more, nothing less. 
             I think we should give her a chance.
    
    Calintz: ..........
    
    
    ( Out of the building)
    Serina:  Everyone hates me.
             There’s nowhere I can go to escape that.
    
    Calintz: You can’t erase what you did in the past,
             no matter how hard you try.
    
    Serina:  ..........
    
    Calintz: Nobody can.
             ...When I found out that Reith was really Amila, 
             I didn’t want to face the truth. 
             But, even though she was Queen, Reith sacrificed
             herself for our sake. I’ll never forget that. 
             I can’t save someone the way Reith did, 
             but if I was given the chance, I would.
    
    Serina:  Are you just saying that out of pity?
    
    Calintz: No... I feel like I should do everything in my 
             power to give back to the world. That’s what
             Reith taught me...
    
    
    
    ( Inside the building)
    Raul:    So, you’ve decided to settle things with Agreian, 
             no matter what, huh?
    
    Calintz: If I don’t, Efferia will be in danger.
    
    Raul:    It’s impossible for you to defeat him.
    
    Calintz: Why, because you’re no match for him?
    
    Raul:    Unfortunately, yes.
    
    Haren:   Don’t be so sure.
             We won’t know unless we try.
    
    Raul:    That’s just what I’d expect from a guy like you.
             By the time you realize your mistake, 
             you’ll be dead.
    
    Haren:   So, what do you want us to do, dammit!?
             Stand here and watch!? There must be a way!
    
    Calintz: You’re right, Raul. The odds are stacked against
             us. But, I’m the one who helped
             Hugo get to this point. 
             Even if I fail, I still have to fight him.
    
    Raul:    Can you at least wait a little longer?
    
    Calintz: What, until you’re healed?
             There’s not enough time.
             Besides, you’re in pretty bad shape.
    
    Raul:    Thanks for your concern.
             If you really want to fight him, go ahead and try.
             Just make sure you’re prepared not to come back.
    
    Rianna:  What the hell’s up with that attitude!? 
             It’s not like we wanna fight him, you know!
             We’re not so naive to think we can save the world.
    
    Raul:    Fighting is one think, but this is suicide.
             What good will your intentions be when 
             you’re dead!?
             Don’t make me laugh.
             Are you that eager to throw your lives away?
    
    Haren:   I’ve had enough of this crap!
    
    Raul:    What? You wanna fight? 
             I’ll teach you a lesson even in my 
             current condition.
    
    Calintz: Stop it, Haren.
             This is our decision. If we wanna risk our lives 
             for nothin’, then so be it. Is that good enough
             for you?
    
    Raul:    Yeah, whatever.
             It’s pointless talking to you, anyway.
    
    
    |                          Raul left Calintz’s party.                         |
    
    
    ( Out of the building)
    Haren:   You talk big in front of Raul, 
             but what good does this do us?
    
    Chris:   Yeah, yeah. It doesn’t change the fact that we
             have to go to The Great Temple ad settle things
             with Agreian. 
    
    Azel:    But, if we can’t go there now, we’ll be surrounded
             by clerics!
    
    Justina: I know another way inside the Temple.
    
    Haren:   Oh, yeah? Then, why don’t you enlighten us...?
    
    Justina: The doctor we met before, Alex, said that there
             was a hidden door in the Turibo hideout in Selton.
             Supposedly, the door leads to an underground 
             sewage pipe which is connected to the Temple.
    
    Chris:   Then, our next destination is Selton?
    
    Haren:   That’s a ways away.
    
    Chris:   Yeah, but if we’re lucky, maybe we’ll meet some
             pretty girls along the way.
    
    Haren:   Give it a rest, would ya?
    
    Calintz: Alright, let’s get moving.
             Agreian won’t wait around forever.
    
    
    |                            Rostin is calling you.                           |
    
    ( Approaching the Communication Sphere)
    Rostin:  Long time no see. Is Chris doin’ alright?
    
    
    Calintz: He’s fine. How ‘bout you...?
             What have you been up to?
    
    Rostin:  Glad you asked! I’ve finally completed Rusty 29! 
             It’s way better than its predecessors! 
             ...More powerful and more expensive!
    
    Calintz: Sounds really impressive. Congratulations.
    
    Rostin:  *nod* Thanks. I was thinking of doing you guys
             a favor and letting you ride it for free. 
             I’m grateful that you’ve managed to keep
             my stupid son alive, and because of you, I was able
             to rediscover my passion – building Rusty!
             Besides, I still need to perform a buncha flight
             tests before I can open Rusty Airways 
             for business.
    
    Calintz: Thanks! After seeing the previous Rusty in action, 
             I’m sure it’ll be a success. And, it’ll save us a lot of
             time getting around.
    
    Rostin:  Sure thing. Just contact me via Communication
             Sphere when you need a lift.
             Of course, like before, there will be certain
             destinations that are too dangerous to fly to.
             I can’t risk crashing Rusty, or my dream of
             opening my own airport will be ruined. But,
             transporting you from town to town shouldn’t
             be a problem.
             I’ll do my best to be at Communication Sphere
             as much as possible, but I can’t be there 24/7.
             I have a social life, ya know. Hahaha.
    
    Calintz: Alright, I understand. I’ll be in touch when we
             need your services. Thanks again.

    ( Going through, they end up on a large balcony, where Agreian a waiting.     )
    
    Agreian: Well, well, well. Who do we have here?
    
    Calintz: ...Hugo.
    
    Serina:  You...
             You’re the reason my sister’s dead.
    
    Agreian: I never laid a finger on her.
             She died trying to protect Calintz.
    
    Serina:  No, it’s because of your selfish plan!
    
    Agreian: So, you think that entitles you to revenge?
    
    Calintz: ...Let’s stop playing games.
             I’m tired to your lies.
    
    Agreian: You were always my inferior...
             I’m sure things haven’t changed...
    
    
    ( The fight with Agreian is quickly over.)
    Calintz: Hugo...
    
    Agreian: Calintz, you’re always been brash. As long as you won, 
             you’re impulsiveness was praised as courage. But, when you
             run into a stronger opponent, it just makes you vulnerable.
    
    ( Raising his hand, he send strange shots towards Calintz. )
    Azel:    Captain!
    
    ( The Phoenix arrives flying in between Calintz and the shots. For a while, it )

    ( quickly as it came, disappears.                                              )
    Agreian: Hmph. A worthless pet, don’t you agree? Now, it’s time to die.
    
    ( He sends another wave of his attack on the way – but this time someone else  )
    ( comes to the rescue – Raul is standing in front of Calintz.                  )
    Raul:    Everyone, run!
             You brought this upon yourselves, understand? Now, go...!
             Find Zekart.
    
    Agreian: What in the world are you thinking?
             A hero from half a century ago is no use to anyone.
    
    Calintz: Let’s go!
    
    
    ( Raul is standing, still holding his sword, but one of Agreian’s shots has   )
    ( pierced him though the stomach.                                             )
    Agreian: Is that the best you can do?
             Seems like you’ve reached your limit.
    
    ( With a slight hand gesture, without even touching Raul, Agreian sends him   )
    ( flying over the edge of the balcony.                                        )
    Raul:    Ugh... *sigh* Elaine...
    
    Agreian: Just go on thinking that you’re a hero, when in reality
             you were powerless from the very beginning.

    ( In the village chief’s house)
    Eonis:   Where’s Mistress Ladrinne?
    
    Justina: I don’t know.
             But, she may never be herself again...
    
    Eonis:   It’s out fault Raul died. 
             We disregarded his warning.
    
    Justina: We can’t change that, now. 
             But, since he died for our sake, we owe it to him
             to kill that monster, Agreian. 
    
    Eonis:   You’re right.
    
    Serina:  What’ll happen, now?
             How could I let myself be deceiver?
             I did such horrible things...
             What was I thinking?!
    
    
    ( Out of the building)
    Serina:  Calintz?
             Were you thinking about Raul?
    
    Calintz: Yeah...
    
    Serina:  What would my sister have said at a time like this...?
    
    Calintz: What difference does it make?
    
    Serina:  Well, you were closer than we are.
             She probably would have tried to make you feel better.
    
    Calintz: Why are you comparing yourself to her?
    
    Serina:  I can’t help it. For the last ten years, she’s the only one I
             talked to. I had no other friends... I don’t know what else to do.
    
    Calintz: It’s ok, you don’t have to do anything.
    
    Serina:  They, try no to look so sad. Usually, you look angry.
    
    Calintz: I do?
    
    Serina:  You’re just acting tough, right? I can tell...
             I was the same way when I tried to be like my sister.
    
    Calintz: I see.
    
    Serina:  So, cheer up.
             ...Even if it doesn’t mean as much coming from me.
    
    Calintz: Thanks... I will.
             Hugo was right – Raul died because of me. 
             It’s hard to accept, but it was completely my fault.
             But, that’s the past, now. I’ll settle things with Hugo for one 
             and for all. The next time we meet, I’ll stand my ground.
    
    
    ( In the village chief’s house)
    Calintz: I’m going to look for my master.
    
    Chris:   You mean that Zekart guy?
    
    Calintz: Yeah. Actually, he’s the Hero of Wind.
             Before he dies, Raul told me to go look for him.
             Maybe he knows a way how to defeat Hugo.
             One thing’s for sure, he’s an incredible fighter.
    
    Justina: Do you know where he is?
    
    Calintz: Last time I saw him, he said he was going on a 
             journey to a land of pure whiteness.
             I didn’t know what he meant at the time, but
             I think he was looking for someplace quiet.
    
    Haren:   So, any guess?
    
    Calintz: Not really. I’ll just have to start searching.
    
    Azel:    Are you going alone, Captain?
    
    Calintz: Yeah. I could take some time to find him, and
             I won’t want to leave Mistress Ladrinne by
             herself. Please look after her until I return.
    
    Eonis:   Okay, leave it to us. Please be careful.
    
    
    
    Eonis:   It’s simple. Bayer is sometimes referred to as
             “the land of white”. So, that’s probably what
             he meant.
    
    Calintz: I think so, too.
    
    Haren:   Just don’t do anything stupid, okay?
    
    Calintz: Don’t worry about me; worry about yourselves.
    
    Azel:    Even if he is in Bayer, it won’t be easy to find
             him... But if he likes quiet, then I doubt he’ll
             be in Bayrux. 
             Captain, I really don’t think you
             should go alone, but it’s your decision...
    
    Calintz: You’re right, he’ll definitely be somewhere more
             secluded. But, I’ll find him. And once I do, I’ll
             come back much stronger. 
             So, don’t worry about me. Just be patient.
    
    Chris:   White means snow... It doesn’t take a genius
             to figure that out, even though I am one. 
             He must be somewhere where there’s snow.
    
    Maya:    ..........
    
    Rianna:  Will you be okay by yourself? I understand 
             why you wanna go alone, but if you get lost, 
             it’ll be a pain in the butt for us to find you.
             So, make sure you come back. We’re already lost 
             enough friends. I wouldn’t stand to loose you, too.
    
    Calintz: Don’t worry. I’ll promise I’ll be back.
    
    Justina: Good luck. Don’t worry about Mistress Ladrinne.
             I’ve served under her for a long time, and I think
             of her like a mother.
    
    Calintz: Yeah, I know. She’ll be in good hands.
             I guess I’ll be leaving now...
    
    
    
    |                       Azel, Eonis, Haren, Chris,                            |

    ( While Calintz is running on the bridge, that is near the exit of Emon...)
    Serina:  Are you leaving already?
    
    Calintz: Yeah.
    
    Serina:  Okay, good luck. Will you bring me a souvenir?
    
    Calintz: ...I’m not going on a vacation, you know.
    
    Serina:  Relax, I was just kidding.
    
    Calintz: ...Alright. Well, goodbye.
    
    Serina:  Be careful...
    
    ( On the world map, at Emon)
    Calintz: (I must go to the Ice Fields of Nordon
              and find my master.)

    ( Calintz is walking at a snow covered place. He’s looking around to find his )
    ( master, when he notices someone standing near a large stone block.          )
    ( He runs to the person, who is the same old man, who saved Mano in Fuget.    )
    Calintz: It’s been a while, Master.
    
    Zekart:  For what purpose... are you here?
    
    
    
    ( Calintz and Zekart are sitting over the fire.)
    Zekart:  People has always been drawn to the Light of Salvation.
             Things never change.
    
    Calintz: Master, do you have a solution?
    
    Zekart:  You wouldn’t understand, even if I told you.
    
    Calintz: But...
    
    Zekart:  Unsheath your sword.
    
    ( At the fight with Zekart, he easily countering Calintz’s attacks. )
    ( After Zekart’s first attack)
    Calintz: !?
    
    ( After Zekart’s second attack)
    Calintz: (How can he counter my attacks so easily!?)
    
    ( After the fight)
    Calintz: You can read my every move...
             Haven’t I improved at all over the last ten years?
    
    Zekart:  Indeed, you are more skillful than before. 
             But, I can see the flow of Chi surrounding you,
             so it is easy to anticipate your next move.
    
    Calintz: How can you defeat me so easily? Has Hugo 
             gained the same power from the Light of Salvation?
    
    Zekart:  You are my student; I know you well. It should
             come as no surprise that I am able to defeat you.
             However, simply possessing the Light of
             Salvation will not grant one the ability to see the
             flow of Chi. 
             It was not until I reached my utmost limit that
             I attained a full understanding of Chi...
             Unfortunately, it too complex to be 
             explained. 
             When you see the flow of Chi, then you can
             control it freely. At that point, style no longer
             has meaning.
             I call the technique “Universal Sword”, since it
             does not rely on any particular type of Chi.
             In fact, any typed of Chi may be combined to
             perform the skill.
    
    Calintz: Please teach me... I must become stronger.
    
    Zekart:  Unless you learn to see the flow of Chi, then
             it will be impossible for you to master this
             technique.
    
    Calintz: Then, what should I do?
    
    Zekart:  First, you must learn to stay calm and be patient.
             ...Go grab something to eat.
    
    Calintz: Huh?

    ( Meanwhile at Emon...)
    ( ...Serina is looking around in the village, but it’s awfully quiet...)
    Serina:  That’s weird. No one’s here...
    
    ( Justina comes running.)
    Justina: The Alliance army is headed this way. We better go.
    
    
    ( In the village chief’s house)
    Justina: Agreian must have planned this. He probably 
             had us followed when we felt the Temple.
    
    Rianna:  Should we force our way through?
    
    Haren:   Of course.
    
    Eonis:   Wait. I don’t want any innocent people to get hurt, 
             so let’s think about this, first...
    
    Haren:   How ‘bout this... You guys escape through 
             the back, taking the Great Priestess with you.
             The rest of us will get the soldiers’ attention.
             That’s the only way.
    
    Chris:   I agree. Azel, Justina, Eonis and Maya,
             take the Great Priestess and get out of here! 
             Haren, Rianna and I will deal with the soldiers.
    
    Maya:    ..........
    
    Chris:   There’s no use pouting, princess, no matter how
             adorable it may be. The fact it it’s too dangerous.
             Once we all escape, we’ll meet up at Lake Astine.
    
    Serina:  What about me?
    
    Chris:   Um... We’ll take care of this, so just do whatever.
    
    Serina:  What!?
    
    Chris:   Do whatever you want... Help us. Don’t help up. 
             Go find Calintz. It’s up to you! But, I don’t 
             recommend staying here.
    
    Serina:  Okay, then I’ll go find Calintz.
    
    Eonis:   It’s settled, then. Let’s go.
    
    
    ( Out of the building) 
    Eonis:  I pray for your safety, Serina. If you see Calintz, 
            tell him not to worry – that we’re alright.
    
    Serina: Okay. Then, we’ll meet at Lake Astine. 
    
    
    ( Back at Zekart’s House)
    Calintz: Okay, I’m ready.
    
    Zekart:  You seem to be much calmer, now. But, you
             look tired. Why don’t you go rest for a while?
             Then, we’ll begin.
    
    Calintz: But, I’m running out of time.
    
    Zekart:  If a single vindictive urge remains in your heart,
             then you will be unable to use
             the Universal Sword technique.
             To master it, you must first come to terms
             with your past. 
             When you attempt to do so, there is a danger
             that you will be crushed by the weight of your
             emotions... even to the point of death.
             That’s why it is so important that you are first in
             a state of tranquility.
    
    ( Speaking again with Zekart)
    Zekart: Your heart is filled with many emotions.
            If a sword is to strike true it cannot be
            tainted by weak alloys.
            Therefore, you must quiet your restless soul.
            I see ripples, caused by all that disturbs you.
            You must eliminate these fluctuations.
            First, clear your mind. 
            Rid yourself of the past that clouds
            your judgment.
            Are you ready?
    
    - No. 
    Zekart: Return here when you are ready.
    
    - Yes. 
    Zekart: Then, leave your part behind you. 
            But, remember Fuget, the style I have 
            taught you. If you are too consumed 
            by the though of gaining power, 
            you’ll be unable to anticipate your
            opponent’s actions. 
            In battle, strength is important, but not as
            important as reading your opponent’s moves.
            Chi is comprised of Yin(X button) and
            Yang(O button). Allow yourself to feel its flow.
            Now recall my teachings and
            leave the past behind you.
    
    
    ( The screen fades to black...)
    Calintz: Master?
             What’s going on?
    
    ( ...and then, Calintz is standing on a large yellow circle, in front of a    )
    ( Blast Worm.                                                                 )
    
    Blast Worm: You... You destroyed my village! 
                The Tears of Blood will pay for this!
    
    Calintz:    But, you did the same to mine... 
                So, we’re even.
    
    Blast Worm: You think that makes it okay to harm
                innocent people?!? We’re dying of Rheuma.
                We’ve done nothing wrong!
    
    Calintz:    This is war. You can’t have sympathy on
                the enemy. No one ever said it was fair.
    
    
    ( After the fight with the Blast Worm, another person appears.)
    Roxy:    The blood of the Yason is on your hands.
    
    Calintz: And the blood of humans in on yours!
    
    Roxy:    I only wish to protect my people. 
             But, you... You’re a murderer.
             You kill any Yason who crosses your path.
    
    Calintz: You are all enemies.
    
    Roxy:    All of us? Even a newborn baby?!
    
    
    ( After the fight with Roxy, another person appears.)
    Azhadi:  Hahaha, you’re just like me – a natural born killer...
             Your body tingles with excitement when you
             draw blood, does it not?
    
    Calintz: Don’t compare me to you. You make me sick!
    
    Azhadi:  Psh, YOU make ME sick. I can smell
             the blood coursing through your veins... 
             Don’t try to deny it.
             Who are you to judge me?
             Your soul is rotten and ugly.
    
    Calintz: Get away from me, you freak!
    
    
    ( After the fight with Azhadi, another person appears.)
    Elaine:  How could you have been fooled
             so easily by the Dark Yason?
    
    Calintz: I...
    
    Elaine:  If you hadn’t come, the Water Shard would never
             have been stolen. You ruined everything, 
             you stupid fool. 
             If the world comes to an end, 
             it’s no one’s fault by yours.
    
    Calintz: Then, why did you steal the Light of Salvation 
             in the first place? It’s the Eight Heroes who
             started this all!
    
    Elaine:  You don’t know just how terrifying the Yason
             were back then. If we didn’t do something,
             then you wouldn’t have never even been born.
             For 50 years we guarded the shards, despite
             the pain it caused us. You fool! You’ve doomed
             the world we gave our life to protect!
    
    Calintz: No! That’s not true!!
    
    
    ( No fight this time, but the next person appears, as always.)
    Carian:  Oh, it’s you – the extraordinary 
             Captain of the Tears of Blood.
    
    Calintz: What do you want?
    
    Carian:  Me? *chuckle* Why are you so agitated?
             You’re having doubts, aren’t you...
    
    Calintz: Dammit... Go away.
    
    Carian:  Hmhmhm... You’ve lived  a life full of hatred, 
             thinking only of revenge. A dirty, blood-soaked life... 
             That’s all you know.
    
    Calintz: I said go away!
    
    
    ( After the fight with Carian, another person appears.)
    Orha:    Foolish human... Why do you avoid yourself?
    
    Calintz: ..........
    
    Orha:    You are ugly inside. Why do you pretend
             not to see? All you must do is admit this,
             and it will end.
    
    Calintz: Okay, I get it. You’re right. 
             ...Are you happy, now?
             Just leave me alone.
    
    Orha:    Then, you must atone for your wrongdoing.
    
    
    ( After the fight with Orha...)
    Calintz: ...Reith!
    
    ( Amila is standing, with her mask on, in front of Calintz.)
    Amila:   I was wrong... Humans are our enemies.
             But, somehow I forgot that, and then I met you.
    
    Calintz: ...I’m sorry I couldn’t protect you.
    
    Amila:   Yes, you failed me, Calintz.
             It’s all your fault. I will forever be blamed by the Yason.
             I’ll be known as the one who fell in love with a human,
             and turned her back on her country... and her people.
    
    ( While she’s speaking, she takes off her mask.)
    Amila:   Why did I sacrifice myself for a human like you? 
             You tired to destroy my country, Yason Roven...
             No, that’s not something that I would do. 
             It was Reith – just one facet of my psyche.
    
    Calintz: I don’t reserve forgiveness... What should I do? 
             I’ll do anything, just tell me.
    
    Amila:   Anything? Then... Will you shed you blood for me, 
             without hesitation?
    
    Calintz: Yes...
    
    ( Amila walks to Calintz and leans to him, as if she’s ready to whisper       )
    ( something to him.                                                           )
    Amila:   Hmhmhm. Now, there’s the Calintz that I love.
    
    
    ( The screen becomes blurry...)
    Calintz: I know myself better than anyone else...
             That they said is true... I lived life foolishly.
             If I hope to escape my past...
    
    
    ( Calintz is lying on the yellow circle, which after a few seconds changes    )
    ( its color to black. And 2 familiar looking yellow shoes appear...           )
    Reith:   Calintz.
    
    ( Surprised to see Reith, Calintz sits up.)
    Calintz: Reith?
    
    ( Reith sits down beside Calintz.)
    Reith:   You haven’t changed one bit. 
             You still need me to look out for you.
             When you purge your anger, be careful, okay?
             You don’t want to loose the person you really are.
    
    Calintz: That’s what I’ve become? Without the thought of revenge,
             my life would have no meaning?
    
    Reith:   You have always lived for the sake of others.
             That’s why you’ve been too scared to face the truth.
             But now, you’re here for your own sake. 
             That’s not a bad thing. If you can’t love yourself, you won’t 
             be able to love anyone else. All the scars that you’ve received 
             have faded away. The past will not haunt you anymore.
             You’ll have a fresh start... as if your past was another lifetime.
    
    Calintz: But... I...
    
    ( Reith leans to Calintz...)
    Reith:   You’re still not convinced? That’s just like you...
    
    
    
    Amila:   You dirty, filthy human. You truly are the scum of the planet.
    
    Calintz: I don’t care what you say, anymore.
             I’m going to live for myself, from now on.
             I’ll leave the past behind... and I’ll no longer be confused!
    
    ( While he’s speaking, he holds out his sword towards Amila.)
    
    ( After the fight with Amila.)
    Amila:   Calintz... Help me!
             It’s me, Reith! Are you going to kill me?
             I sacrificed myself for you...!
    
    Calintz: I’m fine now, Master.
    
    ( Behind the image of Amila appears Zekart.                                   )
    ( Calintz, with one strike, makes Amila disappear...                          )
    Zekart:  It seems that you have awakened. Can you see the flow of Chi?
    
    Calintz: Yes, I can.
    
    ( Around Zekart, there is a greenish-bluish looking barrier, which looks      )
    ( like some kind of liquid.                                                   )
    
    
    ( Back in reality...)
    Zekart:  Are you able to see the truth of things
             in this world with your own yes, now?
    
    ( Serina arrives running...)
    Serina:  Calintz! 
    
    Calintz: Why are you here...?
    
    Serina:  Why? Because I was worried about you.
    
    
    Reith:   There’re people who care about you, right? You should... live.
    
    
    Serina:  Why are you just standing there! We need you!
    
    Calintz: ...What’re you talking about?
    
    
    Calintz: I have to finish my training, first. 
             Then, we can talk.
    
    Serina:  I escaped, but I don1t know what happened 
             to the others. Once you’re ready, let’s go
             to Lake Astine.
    
    
    
    ( Speaking with Zekart)
    Zekart:  How are you feeling?
    
    Calintz: You were testing me.
             But, I was able to escape my past. For the first
             time, I was able to see the light in this world.
    
    Zekart:  Is that so...?
    
    Calintz: I may have known deep inside that I was
             deceiving myself...
             but, I let myself believe that it was my anger
             and hunger for revenge that gave me
             the strength to stand up to Hugo...
             ...when all this time, I just couldn’t face the fact
             that I let myself be a puppet.
             By blaming Hugo, I was able to bury the part
             of me I was ashamed of.
             It wasn’t about Hugo at all. I just wanted to 
             Protect my friends... to guard their future.
             Now, they’re in danger. I will never hesitate again.
    
    Zekart:  So, that’s how you perceive things...
             Then, Calintz, show me your true skills.
    
    
    ( During the fight)
    
    |                    Calintz has learned the special technique                |
    |                            “Universal Sword”.                               |
    |                 When he is in counter Mode, he will be able to              |
    |                   see the Chi that his opponents are using.                 |
    
    ( After the fight)
    
    |                 Calintz has learned the style “True Fuget”.                 |
    
    
    
    Zekart:  Do you plan to unleash the Magna Carta?
    
    Calintz: I don’t know. I have no reason to, anymore.
    
    Zekart:  It is said that the Magna Carta is the ultimate 
             power, but it’s simply a restructuring of the Chi
             within the divine vessels and the surroundings.
             But, to us humans, that may seem like a miracle.
    
    Calintz: I understand now... When Reith sacrificed herself 
             for our sake, she drew from the Chi inside her to
             call forth the Magna Carta.
    
    Zekart:  What was her original intention?
             Did she wish to restore The Tree of Light using
             the Light of Salvation?
    
    Calintz: No. According to Orha, she wanted to destroy it.
             She believed it was the only way for the Yason 
             to survive. It doesn’t make sense...
    
    Zekart:  But, if it was destroyed, then the Yason would
             have no source of Chi.
    
    Calintz: After obtaining the Light of Salvation,
             we realized the truth: The Tree of Light
             is the best resting place for the
             Light of Salvation and its terrible powers.
    
    Zekart:  Calintz, go to Epentar and find The Tree. 
             See with your own eyes the flow of Chi.
             They, you will understand the true relationship
             between The Tree and the Yason’s Vindies.
             From what you’ve said, Amila was already 
             aware of it.
    
    Calintz: Master... What do you mean?
    
    Zekart:  I have nothing  more to say. I leave the rest to
             you. If you are victorious, then the Light of 
             Salvation will be yours. 
             What you do with it is up to you.
    
    
    
    Calintz: Forgive me, Master, but I must go.
    
    Zekart:  I see. I look forward to hearing from you.
    
    Serina:  Did it go well?
    
    Calintz: Yeah.

    Azel:    Captain! 
    
    Calintz: Azel, is everyone alright?
    
    Azel:    Well, not everyone...
    
    Justina: Chris, Haren and Rianna have been captured.
    
    Calintz: What!?
    
    Justina: Rumor has it that there will be a public execution...
             But, I don’t know any more than that.
    
    Calintz: We’ve got to save them. Justina, will you stay
             here and look after Mistress Ladrinne?
    
    Justina: Of course. Please be careful. There are guards
             everywhere. I think they’re expecting you.

    Haren:    Dammit...
    
    Rianna:   I wonder if Justina escaped safely?
              ...What happened to Calintz?
    
    ( 2 Alliance soldiers stop at the door of their cell.)
    Soldier1: Get up.
    
    Soldier2: You guys get the death sentence.
    
    Haren:    Psh! For What!?
    
    Soldier2: you wanna know why? ‘Cause General Agreian said so.
    
    Haren:    That bastard...
    
    Soldier1: Don’t worry, you’ll have a nice funeral.
    
    Soldier2: Yeah, it’ll be great.

    Calintz: I found my master, and he showed me the way.
    
    Rianna:  Good! Then, let’s go kick Agreian’s ass!
    
    Calintz: By now, he must be regretting his decision to
             obtain the Light of Salvation.

             After training with my master,
             things have changed...
    
    
    
    Chris:   So, basically, you’re the ultimate badass, now!
    
    Calintz: That’s a bit of an overstatement.
    
    Justina: So, what are you going to do? Fight Agreian?
    
    Calintz: I’m afraid I have no choice. Hugo will eventually 
             be consumed by the Darkness of Destruction,
             and if that happens, then the whole world will
             be in danger.
    
    Eonis:   Then, you can’t afford to loose...
    
    Calintz: Right. This will be the final battle... I hope
             I can count on you all one more time...
    
    Azel:    Of course, Captain! 
    
    Justina: I’m willing to help, too. However,
             I’m concerned about Mistress Ladrinne.
    
    Chris:   I’ll talk to Dad. We’re the ones who are wanted.
             It’d be a piece of cake for him to keep 
             Mistress Ladrinne safe.
    
    
    
    
    Rostin:  Don’t worry. I’ll take good care of her.

    Serina:  What was my sister like, with you?
    
    Calintz: Like a little kid.
    
    Serina:  What?
    
    Calintz: She was considerate of others, even in ways you
             might not think of. She sparkled, like a star in the sky.
             But, you don’t have to try and fill her shoes. Just be yourself. 
             Don’t worry about what other people think. Follow your heart.
    
    Serina:  How ironic this is... You’re here cheering me up, 
             when my sister asked me to look after you.
    
    Calintz: If you keep talking like that, then nothing will change.
    
    Serina:  Okay, I get it. This is the last time.
             I won’t be depressed anymore, or angry.
    
    
    
    
    Calintz: Let’s go to Epentar. We’ll put a stop to Hugo’s
             plan and make a world where humans and Yason 
             can co-exist.

             I’m kinda worried...
             Do you really think we can win?
    
    Calintz: Yes... With this sword, I believe we can defeat
             him. But, it might not hurt to visit a dojo and 
             pick up some additional equipment.

             Even if we defeat everybody here, more 
             will come.
    
    Rianna:  Then, we’ll just take ‘em all on!
    
    Justina: I’m sure you all realized this, but we should 
             make sure we’re prepared for the final battle. 
             If we wait until later, it may be too late.
    
    Chris:   Final battle? I don’t like the sound of that.
             Can’t we call it something else...?
             Like “The Ultimate Showdown”?
    
    Maya:    ..........
    
    Eonis:   Can you take this a little more seriously?
             Look, even Maya’s mad...
    
    Serina:  Are you ready, Calintz?
    
    Calintz: Yeah. ...Let’s finish this!
    
    
    ( Going through Epentar they end up before the Castle. Inside the Castle,     )
    ( there’s nothing interesting, except a magic circle, which takes everyone    )
    ( to a new part of Epentar. After a few steps, they bump into the welcome     )
    ( party of 3 Blast Worms.                                                     )
    Serina:  The Blast Worms!
    
    Azel:    Captain, leave it to me!
    
    Chris:   Azel, Maya, and I will take care of this.
             You go on ahead.
    
    Calintz: Thanks, guys.
    
    |                   Azel, Chris, Maya left Calintz’s party.                   |
    
    
    ( Going forward, there is a familiar person waiting.)
    Azhadi:  Welcome, Your Majesty.
    
    Serina:  Azhadi... You’re not a Dark Yason...
             Why are you siding with Agreian?
    
    Azhadi:  So, you expect me to care about those
             ungrateful invalids? Even though they’re
             constantly criticizing the Blast Worms?
    
    Serina:  Rheuma is also affecting the Blast Worms.
             You think you’re the only one who’ll be safe?
    
    Azhadi:  The Tree of Light will be restored.
             ...Not until the Yason are dead, of course.
             Otherwise, they’d just take things for granted.
    
    Calintz: You think Agreian will restore The Tree?
             He’s the kind of guy who will gloat 
             while the Yason die slowly.
    
    Azhadi:  The Tears of Blood hate the Yason, don’t they?
             Well, we have something in common, then.
             You’d make powerful allies.
    
    Justina: When you’re through with the Yason, 
             your next target will be humans, right? 
             There’s no way we could be part of that.
    
    Azhadi:  Hmpm... We may have one thing in common, 
             but the similarities end there.
    
    Calintz: I agree.
    
    Haren:   Calintz! It’s a waste of time talking to him.
             Let us handle this; you got bigger fish to fry.
    
    Calintz: ...Haren, don’t die.
    
    Haren:   Man, don’t jinx me!
    
    ( During the fight with Azhadi)
    Azhadi:  Why should I bother with you?
             ...Succubus, dinner is served!
    
    ( After defeating him familiar.)
    Azhadi:  Hmm... I guess it’s not so easy after all.
             Well, come on! Try ME on for size!
    
    
    |                            Eonis, Haren, Justina                            |
    |                            left Calintz’s party.                            |
    
    
    ( Going forward, there is another familiar person waiting.)
    Carian:  I see you defeated Azhadi.
    
    Calintz: You want a piece of us, too?
    
    Carian:  Well, hello again, Your Highness.
             You’re siding with THEM, now?
    
    Serina:  You’ve got no room to talk...
             Don’t you know that you’re being used!?
    
    Carian:  Allow me to correct you. In my arrangement
             with Agreian, I believe that we’re both using
             each other.
    
    Serina:  Don’t you care of Yason-Roven is destroyed?
             ...Or even all of Efferia?
    
    Carian:  Shut up and get ready to fight!
    
    Serina:  Calintz, you go on without me.
    
    Calintz: But...
    
    Serina:  I want to make myself useful, for a change.
             I’ll catch up as soon as I’m finished here.
    
    
    ( Carian summons her familiar, the three headed snake, which get ready to     )
    ( attack Serina. However, The attack is disturbed by another familiar, the    )
    ( Raven. Soon, Orha shows up, walking slowly up the stairs.                   )
    Orha:    Calintz, go now.
    
    Calintz: Orha...
    
    ( Orha and Calintz silently stare at each other, until Calintz nods.)
    Calintz: ...I’m sorry.
    
    
    ( During the fight with Carian)
    Carian:  This is it!
    
    ( After defeating her familiar.)
    Carian:  You’re tougher than I thought.
    
    
    |                   Serina, Rianna left Calintz’s party.                      |
    
    
    ( At the top of the stairs is a magic circle, which takes Calintz to where    )
    ( Agreian is waiting for him.                                                 )
    Agreian: So, you’re finally here.
    
    Calintz: You were expecting me?
    
    Agreian: Of course.
    
    Calintz: So, this is how it ends...
    
    Agreian: I see it as destiny. I hate to lose you, though.
    
    Calintz: Hugo, I came to return something to you.
    
    ( Two soldiers stand in the way of Calintz)
    Agreian: What is it?
    
    [ MOVIE – One of the soldiers falls onto the ground. Calintz, after a few     ]
    [ steps hold up the knife, which he received from Hugo. He throws it to Hugo  ]
    [ who easily catches the knife, and shatters it to pieces.                    ]
    Calintz: I don’t need that anymore.
    
    Agreian: Hahaha... So, you’re saying, “To hell with the past”, huh?
    
    Calintz: That knife means nothing to me, now.
    
    Agreian: I see... Then, I guess we’re enemies.
    
    
    ( After defeating Agreian, he’s kneeling on the ground.)
    Agreian: It can’t be... Why can’t I see your attacks?
             There’s no way you have that much power!
    
    Calintz: You thought you could unleash the Magna Carta
             with the Darkness of Destruction?
    
    Agreian: And why not!?
    
    Calintz: There’s something that you lack.
    
    Agreian: You bastard. I cannot possibly lose...
             I have power beyond your wildest imagination!
             Once I have resurrected the Tree of Light using the
             Darkness of Destruction, all of Efferia will cower before 
             me. Both humans and Yason will obey my every command!
    
    ( while he’s speaking, his back starts to glow, and he starts to change.)
    Agreian: ...I will control... all the world!
             You think humans... pose the slightest threat to me?
             You’ve interfered for long enough!
             You will be punished... for trying to steal my kingdom
             from me!
    
    Calintz: The Light of Salvation has overtaken you.
    
    Agreian: Uah... Ah... Calintz... Calintz!
    
    ( Calintz holds up his sword, ready to attack, when Serina arrives, running.)
    Serina:  Calintz!
             Let’s fight... together.
    
    
    
    ( After the blinding light fades away, they see, what Agreian has become: the )
    ( mix of some reptilian thing, with large tail, two gray wings, and in the    )
    ( middle there is Agreian, fused with the creature.                           )
    Calintz: I can’t believe you won’t let go of the Light, 
             even after what it’s done to you... Hugo, this is insane!
    
    Agreian: Silence! Insolent humans... I’ll rip you to shreds!
    
    
    ( After defeating Agreian)
    
    ( There’s a large explosion, and Agreian falls onto the ground.)
    Agreian: Ugh... Ughhh...
    
    Calintz: Hugo... 
             It's over now.
    
    
    Agreian: Ha... haha... killed by my childhood friend...
             Unbelievable... I never thought you'd be the one...
             to save the Yason... You've always hated them so much...
    
    Calintz: I really had to reason... to hate them so much.
    
    Agreian: But... you've killed countless Yason... and stood there,
             while the one, you loved sacrificed herself...
             Hahahaha... Live on in pain... and endless regret...
    
    Calintz: Someday, you'll see the truth.
    
    ( While they are speaking, Agreian turns more and more transparent, until he  )
    ( totally vanishes.                                                           )
    
    
    ( Still at the same place, Calintz is standing, behind him is Serina.)
    Serina:  Calintz...
    
    Calintz: It's all over now, Serina.
    
    Serina:  ...Calitz... I want to run to you... But... I can't...
    
    ( Serina’s legs are already turned to stone... Calintz runs to her.)
    Calintz: Serina...
    
    Serina:  I was... so happy... to see you again, after all those years.
             ...Once, when we were younger, you mistook me for
             my sister... I got really upset, then. Do you remember?
    
    Calintz: Yeah.
    
    Serina:  Sorry.
    
    Calintz: Serina...
    
    Serina:  I had my eyes on you even before my sister.
             ...This is it... so I want you to know...
             Calintz... I... I've always...
    
    Calintz: Serina!
    
    Serina:  No! I... I'm not done yet!
    
    Calintz: Serina!!
    
    Serina:  Calintz... You know that I've always... loved...
    
    [ MOVIE – Serina tries to move, but she’s almost petrifies – she shakes her   ]
    [ head, and a few seconds later, she’s totally petrifies. Calintz runs to her ]
    [ kneels down, and holds her hand. It looks like as he’s trying to cure her,  ]
    [ there’s a large explosion – and Serina moves, as if nothing has happened.   ]
    [ In disbelief he looks at Calintz, who still on his knees, hugs Serina...    )
    
    
    |             With the destruction of the Light of Salvation,                 |
    |         The Tree of Light lost its source of power and withered away.       |
    |                As a result, the Yason were finally freed from               |
    |              the cursed bonds that constrained their existence.             |
    |                                                                             |
    |                                                                             |
    |               When they learned that a human was responsible for            |
    |              curing them of Rheuma, the inhabitants of Yason-Roven          |
    |                              were in disbelief.                             |
    |                                                                             |
    |                                                                             |
    |                 Despite that miracle, not all problems between              |
    |                     the two races were instantly solved.                    |
    |                     However, humans and Yason have begun                    |
    |                                 to make peace.                              |
    |                                                                             |
    |                                                                             |
    |                        Time flows on; a year has passed...                  |
    
    Haren is standing at a grave, probably Felicia’s.
    Behind him is Eonis standing, who smiles at him, and for the first time,
    Haren is smiling.
    
    At Efor, Rostin and Chris are taling looking at a plan, probably the next
    Rusty's. Maya goes to them, shakes her head, but her eyes shows that she's
    really happy with them. 
    
    In Amabat, at The Great Temple, Justina is walking, when she notices Mistress
    Ladrinne. She runs to her...
    
    
    At Lake Astine, Rianna stands holding a bouquet of flowers, which she throws
    into the lake.
    
    
    At the Headquarters, Azel is watching over some training soldiers.
    
    
    In Epentar, in Amila’s room, Orha is standing in front of the desk. The sun is
    shining in, as always, and behind the desk appears the image of Amila, smiling.
    After a few seconds, her image fades away...
    
    
    [ MOVIE – In a garden, Serina is sitting on a bench. She stands up and starts ]
    [ to walk away, when Calintz grabs her hand. She looks at him, smiles at him. ]
    [ Calintz smiles at Serina, and they are standing, hugging each other, while  ]
    [ in the background the withered The Tree of Light can be seen.               ]
    
    
    (After the ending credits...)
    At one of the woods, Raul is lying on the ground, relaxing. 
    First, his expression is pretty neutral, but it soon changes, and he’s smiling.

    Eonis:   In Bayer, they tell fortunes the night before a big
             event by studying the stars. Tonight, the stars
             look rather ominous.
    *************************************************************
    
    - You actually believe in that stuff?
    Eonis:   *giggle* It’s probably hard for someone from
             Garute to understand, since the people here
             are much less superstitious.
    *** Eonis’s trust in you has increased.***
    
    
    - I can see why people seek their fortunes, but-
    Eonis:   Oh, you doubt star-divination? It’s quite accurate,
             actually. Well I can’t say, I’m surprised,, since 
             the people of Garute aren’t very superstitious. 
    *** Eonis’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Calintz: In Garute, the best thing to do before a big event
             is nothing at all. That way you can avoid any 
             unnecessary distractions.

             right? 
    *** Azel’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    - It’s a secret mission from General Agreian.
    Azel:    Really? That’s awesome!

    Haren:   Hmph! It’s just probably some dirty work.

    *****************************************************
    
    - I’m busy with work. I don’t have time for that.
    Azel:    We’re luck to have you as our leader, Captain.
    *** Azel’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    - I’m more at home on the battlefield.
    Azel:    Huh? ... Really? 
    *** No change ***

    *** Eonis’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Haren:   You can only say that because we’re so close.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    - Don’t worry. I’ll make sure of that.
    Eonis:   You’re pretty confident. I can believe in you, right?
    *** Eonis’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    
    *********************************************************
    Eonis: If we attack the Yason with the Forbidden Magic,
           Epentar might be destroyed.
           I wander if attacking Epentar is the right thing
           to do. There are so many civilians there...
    *********************************************************
    
    - ...We’re no different from the Yason, you say?
    Eonis: That’s not what I mean.
           There’s a reason why the Forbidden Magic is
           forbidden.
           You don’t know what kind of power will be
           unleashed. 
    *** Eonis’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    
    - We’re just returning the favor.
    Eonis: I know we all have our personal vendettas
           against the Yason.
    *** Eonis’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Haren: That’s right and I plan to make good on mine...
    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    
    ***************************************************
    Azel:  I hope that this operation is a success.
           For the sake of the Tears of Blood, as well.
    ***************************************************
    
    - We’ll make it succeed. We will end this war.
    Azel: I’ll do my best, Captain! 
    *** Azel’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    - Either way, the Alliance will still get the credit.
    Haren: Yeah... Their attitude pisses me off.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Azel:  But... This is such an important mission.
    *** Azel’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    
    
    ******************************************************
    Azel:  What do you think about this mission, Captain? 
    ******************************************************
    
    - Of course I think it’s important.
    Azel:  Me, too.
    *** Azel’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Haren: Pssh! We’re just doing all the hard work for
           someone else.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    
    - It doesn’t seem to have much to do with us.
    Azel:  It does seem like the Alliance will take all
           the credit.
    *** Azel’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Haren: He’s right. 
           We don’t have anything to do with this.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    
    ************************************************
    Haren: We just have to protect the mages, right?
           Let’s just get this over with.
    ************************************************
    
    - Never underestimate the enemy...
    Haren: What!? Don’t lecture me.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Eonis: Haren, listen to what Calintz says. 
           We don’t know what the enemy can do...
    *** Eonis’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    - With you this pumped, we’ll be done in no time.
    Haren: Of course! The Yason don’t stand a chance.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    
    *****************************************************
    Haren: Do you think the Headquarters will be alright?
    *****************************************************
    
    - Heh... I didn’t think you cared...
    Haren: Hey, I care! I may not show it often
           but I am a member of this outfit.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Azel:  Hmmm...
           I think I’ve seen a new side of Haren today...
    *** Azel’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    - Anyone who tries to get in will end up lot.
    Haren: Yeah, you’re right...
           The idiot who got lost is right here.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Eonis: What are you sulking about?
           Calintz didn’t mean it like that.

    Eonis: We should get out of Yason-Roven.
    
    *******************************************************
    Eonis: Let’s hurry. I can’t believe the Forbidden Magic
           failed.
    *******************************************************
    
    - The Alliance is full of good-for-nothings.
    Eonis:   You shouldn’t say things like that about our allies.
    *** Eonis’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Calintz: Because they couldn’t hold back the Blast Worms, 
             the Forbidden Magic took longer to cast...
             Which gave Amila time to prepare.
    
    Eonis:   Stop it. Everyone did their best. They put their
             Lives on the line, just like us.
    
    
    - I’m sorry... Our efforts were for nothing.
    Eonis:   Calintz...
    *** Eonis’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Calintz: I wonder if General Agreian is alright...
             Let’s go find out.
    
    Eonis:   Okay.
    
    
    
    *********************************
    Azel: Captain... Are you alright?
    *********************************
    
    - Yeah. What about you?
    Azel: I’m fine. I’m just glad that you’re not injured.
          Let’s get out of here.
    *** Azel’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    - Yeah, I’m fine.
    Azel: Thanks goodness. Now, let’s get outta here.
    *** No change ***  
    
    
    
    *****************************************
    Haren: Dammit... Those Yason bastards...!
    *****************************************
    
    - Amila... She’s even more powerful then they say.
    Haren:   You think she’s the one who blocked
             the Forbidden Magic? Is that possible,
             even for a queen?
    *** No change ***  
    
    Calintz: Her power is rumored to be nearly infinite. 
             I thought they were just stories spread to create 
             loyal subjects, but it seems there may have been
             some truth to them.
    
    
    - Calm down.
    Haren:   *grunt*
    *** Haren’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Calintz: Some of the responsibility falls on the Alliance
             for not being able to hold back the Blast Worms.
             Also, the Forbidden Magic took longer to cast
             then we expected.
    
    Haren:   But if Amila wasn’t there, the magic would’ve hit.
             If only she hadn’t been there...!
    
    Calintz: There’s no use crying over spilt milk. If we get
             the chance, we’ll take care of her ourselves.

    ************************************************************
    
    - Sorry. I had no other choice.
    Haren:   ...Why don’t you think of yourself for a change?
    
    Calintz: the Tears of Blood is my number on priority.
    
    Haren:   Revenge is a selfish emotion, isn’t it?
             ...Sometimes, I can’t help to think Felicia wanted
             it this way.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased. ***

    Eonis:   Stop it, Calintz. You know what Haren means.
    
    Calintz: Sorry, it was a bit harsh. I’m just frustrated
             that the mission was a failure.
    
    Azel:    Captain... We’re grateful... But, you sure
             gave us a scare.

    Reith:   I-I’m sorry.
    *** Reith’s trust in you has decreased. ***

           What if the person in danger was one of us?
    
    Haren: That’s different!
    
    Eonis: True, but don’t you think human life is
           important, no matter what the circumstances?
    *** Eonis’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    - We don’t have any say in the matter.
    Haren:   I knew you’d say that.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Azel:    Captain, since we’re saving someone’s life
             doesn’t that make it an important mission?
    
    Calintz: Maybe you’re right.
    
    Azel:    I’d like to think that.

    Azel: I wonder if we can save Reith...
          I’m a bit worried.

    - If you believe in me, then just follow me.
    Azel: You know I do. I’ve always believed in you.
    *** Azel’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    - If you’re not confident, you can stay behind.
    Azel:  Captain, I didn’t mean it like that...

    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    
    ******************************************
    Azel: Captain, what do you think of Reith?
    ******************************************
    
    - I don’t know... I never thought about it...
    Azel:    Oh, is that so?
             Hmmmm...
    *** Azel’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Chris:   You never thought about it? Are you blind?
             How can you say that, with such beauty in front
             of you?
             O’ lovely Reith... Your beauty is purer that a 
             chrysanthemum enveloped in the morning mist.

    Haren:   Did you just break into song?
             What the hell is wring with you, man?
    
    
    - For some reason... she’s on my mind.
    Azel:    Is that so?

    Chris: Man, they’re sure making a big deal out of this.
           Yason this, Yason that.
           We’re only out here to save a beautiful lady.
    *******************************************************
    
    - ...Don’t put us on the same level as you?
    Chris: Is there a lump of coal where your heart should be?
           You should let your spirit be free, like mine.
    *** Chris’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Haren: Calintz is right. What the hell would happen
           if everyone was like you?
    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    - How can you be so cheerful at a time like this?
    Chris: Hahaha... It’s just my way, man.
           You should try it sometimes.
           You’ll be a lot happier for it.
    *** Chris’s trust in you has increased. ***

           I know you’ve got a little somethin’,
           somethi’ for the new girl...
           I can see it in the way you treat her.
    *********************************************
    
    - She’s lost her memory. Of course she needs help.
    Chris: Is that so? 
           So, can I go out with her?
    *** Chris’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Azel:  You’re kidding, right?
           Reith is about a million times good for you.
    
    Eonis: I agree...
    
    Chris: A million times...?
           I was thinking maybe two or fives time...
           But, a million?
    
    
    - What would you say if I said she was my type?
    Chris:   Awwww, that’s too bad.
             She’s my type, too.
             Then again, any girl that looks like that is my type.
             Heheh...
             So, when’s the wedding?
             Hmm?
    *** Chris’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Calintz: ............
    
    Haren:   You want me to break my foot off in his ass?
             Just give me the word.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    
    
    *********************************************************
    Eonis: I hope you don’t provoke the Alliance any further.
    *********************************************************
    
    - I know... I let my emotions get the best of me.
    Eonis: Just keep that in mind that any action we take will
           surely raise eyebrows. We should be careful.
    *** Eonis’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Haren: Who cares? Those Alliance punks need some
           ass-kickin’ anyways.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    
    - They insulted me.
    Eonis: What I’m saying is not to get so emotional.
           The Tears of Blood draws too much attention 
           as it is.
    *** Eonis’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Azel:  But, they had no right. I think they deserved it.
    *** Azel’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    
    *******************************************************
    Eonis: Even if General Agreian trusts us,
           we shouldn’t do anything to upset General Tazma.
    *******************************************************
    
    - Yes, I know. I was acting childish.
    Eonis: I know you can be calm and collected.
           Unlike someone else I know.
    *** Eonis’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Haren: What? You talkin’ about me?
    
    Eonis: Hmm? I didn’t say anything.
    
    
    - Nothing good will happen if we just back down.
    Eonis: A wounded ego never hurt anyone.
    *** Eonis’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Haren: Don’t even go there.
           Calintz is right. We’re not part of the Alliance.
           There’s no point in being nice to them.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    
    ***************************************************************
    Haren: Geez, what a troublesome girl. Why’d you bring her here?
    ***************************************************************
    
    - She saved my life.
    Haren: Tch. Then why didn’t you treat her better?
           If she’s lost her memory, they you should’ve 
           just taken her to a doctor.
    *** No change. ***  
    
    Azel:  Don’t say that. 
           She save the Captain’s life.
           Of course we had to save her.
           Besides, who caused that fight on the bridge?
    *** Azel’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    - I didn’t ask for your help.
    Haren: Is that so? Have a nice life then...
    *** Haren’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Chris: Alright, Mr. Attitude, that’s enough...
           Of course we’re going to save the damsel in distress.
    *** Chris’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Haren: Shut up!
    
    
    
    ******************************************************
    Haren: I can’t believe you’re being lead by this girl.
           I thought you weren’t interested.
    ******************************************************
    
    - My only concern is repaying my debt.
    Haren: If you say so... the last thing we need is you being distracted.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    - What’s wrong... Are you interested?
    Haren: W-What!? Of course not!!!
    *** Haren’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Chris: Heheh... It looks like someone’s in love.
           I can see it in your face, man.
    *** Chris’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Haren: I think someone’s asking for a death wish...

          Besides, the Yason have appeared on the Road

    Reith:   I can’t stay here...?

    Calintz: I’m sure your feelings will change once you get
             back your memory.
    
    Justina: That’s right. You’d have to start with training to
             be the next Great Priestess.
    
    *** Justina’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***

             embarrassing things about your childhood!
             When you were seven, your name was Mano,
             and you were a crybaby...
    *** Chris’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Calintz: Them I’ll talk about your most embarrassing 
             moments...
    
    Reith:   Hm? What’s that?
    *** Reith’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Justina: I want to hear about it, too.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Chris:   You wouldn’t!? That’s so not cool!
             We’ve been pals a long time, right Calintz...?
    
    Haren:   What a looser...
             He wet his bed until he was twelve.
    
    Chris:   Th-That was because I had nightmares!
    
    Justina: Sure. It’s alright.
             I know plenty guys who—oh wait—no I don’t.
             Aaahahahaha!
    
    Chris:   Dang, see what you’ve done?
             My street cred has gone down the toilet.
             You’ll get yours, dude...
    
    
    
    ************************************************
    Haren: This is a pain. 
           Why do we have to do this stupid mission?
           We should just go home.
    ************************************************
    
    - You can go home now if you want.
    Azel:  That’s alright! Haren, you’re always complaining.
           You should think about the group instead of just
           yourself.
    *** Azel’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Haren: Heh, it looks like you know how to talk like an
           adult. I still remember when you used to cry all
           the time.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Azel:  Ow ow ow ow! 
           Captain, help me!
    
    
    - Don’t worry, you’ll get paid when we get back.  
    Haren: That’s what I like to hear!
    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Azel:  You are such the mercenary...
    
    
    
    ****************************************************
    Reith: ...Am I just getting in your way, Calintz...?
    ****************************************************
    
    - No, you’re not. Don’t worry about it. 
    
    Haren:   I don’t think she’s just going to stop worrying 
             about it just because you say not to.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith:   I’m sorry...
    *** Reith’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Chris:   We’re cool... Calintz said no to worry about it.
    
    Calintz: ..........
    
    
    - If you think so, then just get back your memory.
    Reith:   I... I’m sorry...
    *** Reith’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Chris:   Hey, that wasn’t a nice thing to say!
             Forget about him, you need a man that’ll treat
             you right... Like me!
    *** Chris’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Justina: Stop fooling around, Chris!
             Calintz is right.
             I hope you regain your memory soon.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    
    
    ********************************************************
    Reith: Calintz. This is for saving me. I made it myself.
           Here, have a taste...
    ********************************************************
    
    - It... It’s good...
    Chris: Reeaally? Then, I’ll take one...
           Urgh!? Y-You’re right...
           It’s oh-so... good...
    
    Reith: Really!?
    *** Reith’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Haren: Here, let me have a taste... Bleagh!
           What planet is this food from?
    *** Haren’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith: I-It’s not good? That’s strange...
           I thought it tasted good...
    
    Haren: What!?
           I think you need new taste buds!
    
    
    - It does taste... a bit odd...
    Reith:   Huh?
    *** Reith’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Chris:   The gods’ll strike you down if you say anything
             about her cooking...
             Now, let me try...
             Urgh! J-Just as I thought...
             She’s a top-class *cough* cook.
             If you guys got * cough* married—
             C-Calintz, I’m sorry man...
             I think you’re gonna starve to death.
    
    Reith:   What do you think, Azel? 
             Is my cooking good?
    
    Azel:    O-Oh... yes, Reith.
             I think... that being able to cook this
             is wonderful enough.
    
    Reith:   Thank you.
             I’ll make it everyday, then!

    - Hmph. Don’t you mean infamous?
    Justina: So, you’re aware of that.
             It seems you’ve been here and there,
             wreaking havoc.
             I pictured someone a little crazy,
             but you look fairly normal.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Azel:    The stories are greatly exaggerated.
    
    Chris:   But, they’re half right.
             He’s just softened up a little since then.
    *** Chris’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    - So, what’s it to you?
    Justina: Oh, nothing. I was just interested in you.
    *** No change  ***  
    
    Reith:   *giggle* Whenever I see Calintz,
             I want to know more about him.

           were drunk? You told me you were dumped
           247 times...
    
    Chris: W-Why you!?
    
    
    - I believe in her. She’ll be fine.
    Eonis:   You should tell that to her.
             Whenever I listen to you two talk, it feels like
             you guys are just going through the motions...
    *** Eonis’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***

             What do I know is that you share the same kind 
             heart...

    Eonis: The Light of Salvation contains immense power,
           right? What would you do if you had that power?
    ******************************************************
    
    - I’d take revenge.
    Eonis:   It seems like you have a lot of anger built
             up inside.
    *** No change. ***  
    
    Calintz: Of course.
    
    Haren:   If I had that power... I’d low Yason-Roven
             right off the map.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Azel:    That’s a bit extreme. You’d be killing innocent
             children, too.
    *** Azel’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    
    - I’d end the war.
    Eonis:   That’s the same thing I was thinking.
    *** Eonis’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Chris:   But, that means borrowing the power of
             the Light of Salvation...
    *** Chris’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Calintz: I don’t know if that would solve our problems
             or not... When it comes to war, there really is
             no right answer.
    
    
    
    ****************************************************
    Haren: The Light of Salvation, huh... So, soon we’ll
           have our revenge...
    ****************************************************
    
    - We need it to end the war.
    
    Haren: Heh... So, you want revenge, too...
    *** Haren’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***
    
    Azel:  Stop it, Haren.
    *** Azel’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Eonis: I understand that you want revenge, but ending
           the war is our primary goal.
    *** Eonis’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    - That’s right. Revenge will be ours.
    Haren: I’ve waited a long time for this.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Chris: Trust me, it won’t make you feel any better...
    *** Chris’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Eonis: Yes, revenge is not everything. We’re looking for 
           the Light of Salvation to end the war, too.
    *** Eonis’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    
    
    *****************************************************
    Haren: I don't get it. If you have a grudge, then get
           revenge. Is a half-ass sense of justice that
           important?"
    *****************************************************
    
    - Revenge is a selfish action. Remember that.
    Haren: I gave up on justice the day Felicia died...
    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    - Revenge will just create more people like us.
    Haren: Who cares? Why are you so concerned about 
           everyone else?
    *** Haren’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Azel:  That’s not a bad thing. Because of Captain, 
           I’m here now. If he didn’t save me...
           I would’ve frozen to death.
    *** Azel’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Eonis: Azel...
    
    
    
    *****************************************************
    Chris: It feels like a foreign territory, doesn't it?
    *****************************************************
    
    - Are you having second thoughts?
    Chris: Who, me? We’ve come this far... I’ll see it
           through to the end.
    *** Chris’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    - If you’re going to back out, now’s the time.
    Chris: What? If I wanted to quit, I would’ve
           done it a long time ago.
    *** Chris’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    
    *********************
    Maya: ...............
    *********************
    
    - You look tired. Are you okay?
    Maya: .........
    *** Maya’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    
    - .........
    Maya:  .........
    *** Maya’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Chris: Hey, what’s goin’ on here?
    
    Eonis: Maybe Calintz has learned how to 
           communicate with Maya.

    Justina: Let’s head to Fuget through Caska and Erestine. 
             Reith... We might be able to cure your amnesia.
    
    ***************************************************
    Justina: Reith, once you’ve gotten your memory back
             do you want to become a candidate for
             the Great Priestess?
    *****************************************************
    
    - Me? The Great Priestess?
    Justina: There’s no guarantee you’ll be chosen, but just
             being a candidate is an honor. It’s the first step
             to becoming the Great Pristess.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith:   I see...
    
    
    - I’m not sure I’m right for it...
    Justina: Why not?
    *** Justina’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Reith:   I don’t know. It’s just a feeling.
    
    Justina: Well, the choice is yours.
    
    
    
    ***************************************************
    Justina: What do you think of this war?
    *****************************************************
    
    - Fighting never changes anything.
    Justina: Well, there’s no easy way to end the war.
             It’s not like they can just shake hands and
             make up. 
             If it were the case, then it would have 
             never started.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith:   ........
    
    Justina: To tell you the truth, I don’t really care for people 
             who talk about nothing but ideals. I actually find
             it easier to deal with the Tears of Blood,
             who only seek revenge. At least they have
             the courage to act on their convictions.
    
    Reith:   ...I’m sorry.
    
    Justina: Don’t misunderstand me. I’m not blaming you
             personally.
    
    
    - I’m sorry. I just don’t know.
    Justina: You don’t know?
    
    Reith:   I don’t want the fighting to continue, but Eonis
             Said that words can no longer end this war.
    
    Justina: You and Mistress Ladrinne have a lot in common.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith:   Huh?
    
    Justina: She thinks as you do. Empty promises are not
             enough, but if you get the truth across,
             the situation may change.
    
    Reith:   .......
    
    Justina: However, there may be times when you can
             only get truth across through force. People
             are foolish, believing only what they can see.

    Rianna: No matter where ya go, everyone’s at war with
            the Yason. This world is a mess. 
    *****************************************************
    
    - If only we could stop fighting and live in peace.
    Rianna:  We can’t live in peace.
             That’s the reason we’re fighting in the first place.
             What are you, one of those dreamers who believe 
             that we shouldn’t be fighting the Yason?
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith:   Maybe... Maybe I am.
    
    Rianna:  Really?
    
    Reith:   I just don’t see what’s wrong with saying,
             “Let’s live in peace.”
             It may sound silly to you...
             But, I can’t deny what’s in my heart.
    
    Rianna:  Yeah, I guess...
             Regardless, it’s still just a dream.
             I mean if words could end the war,
             it would’ve been over a long time ago.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Reith:   That’s why... That’s why I’m searching for an answer.
    
    Rianna:  Huh?
    
    Justina: She still hasn’t regained all of her memory.
             When she does, she’ll be able to comprehend
             much more than she does now.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    
    - I guess war is inevitable.
    Rianna:  We’re powerless. 
             I mean, we can talk all we want about how
             we should live together in peace,
             but if words could end the war,
             it would’ve been over a long time ago.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Justina: .........
    *** Justina’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Rianna:  What’re you lookin’ at?
             You really don’t like being felt out of
             the conversation, do ya?
             Lemme guess, the peace-lovin’ Priestesses think
             differently than us commoners, right?
    
    Justina: You’re mistaken of you believe that all Priestesses
             are pacifists.
             We’re not watching the war from the sidelines,
             you know.
    
    
    
    *********************************************
    Rianna: Hey, you’re a pretty one, aren’t you?
            Do you have our eyes on anyone?
    *********************************************
    
    - Huh!? N-No... I-I don’t think so...
    Rianna:  Sure you do... There is someone, isn’t there?
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith:   That’s uh...
    
    Rianna:  If you like ‘em, you better tie ‘em down.
             It’ll be too late or regrets when he gets away.
    
    Justina: That’s enough. You’re upsetting Reith.
    
    
    - No...
    Rianna:  Well, that’s disappointing to hear.
             Maybe you’re just trying to hide it.
             Anyways, if you ever need advice, 
             you know who to come to.
             I’m quite the experienced in that area.
    *** No change  ***  
    
    Justina: If she listens to you, she’ll end up a tomboy.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Rianna:  Well, at least I have more experience than a
             Priestess.
    
    Justina: They say that women have become much more
             appreciated because of the war.
             And a woman is a woman, I guess.
             Even is she’s like THAT.
    
    Rianna:  Hey!
    
    Reith:   Uh... Ummm...
    
    
    
    *****************************************
    Rianna: If your beloves just up and left,
            you’d go after ‘em wouldn’t ya?
    *****************************************
    
    - Yes, I would. I’d want to know why he left.
    Rianna:  That’s right! Wait... What?
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Justina: Maybe he just grew tired if it all.
    
    Rianna:  What’s your problem!?
    
    
    - No. I think it’s best to wait for him.
    Rianna:  Then he should at least tell me when he’s coming
             back. It’s hard to wait for someone day after day
             after day.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Reith:   It’s hard. But, of you believe in him, you should wait.
    
    Justina: Right. But, what if he didn’t feel for her the same
             way she felt for him? 
             What if this is his way of saying it’s over between
             them?
    
    Rianna:  Hey!

          of us. They said we were the lapdogs of the Alliance.
          Why would they say something like that?
    ***********************************************************
    
    - It doesn’t matter as long as you know the truth.
    Azel:    Sorry...
    
    Calintz: I’m not getting down on you.
             I understand how hard it is to be a mercenary at
             your age.
             It’s not a good feeling to hear someone badmouth
             you. But, it’s not like you’re working to earn
             people’s praises.
    
    Azel:    ...You’re right, Captain.
    *** Azel’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***

             you’ve done a good job?
    
    Azel:    It’s not that! 
             I don’t need to hear those words...
    *** Azel’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Haren:   Ya know, it really pisses me off to hear that kinda
             crap from losers that reek of weakness.
    
    Eonis:   It’s not easy to hear such things. 
             Remember, Calintz has had to endure that kind 
             of criticism for much longer than you have.

           That makes me feel a bit embarrassed.

    *** Haren’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    
    - Actually, I didn’t know.
    Azel:    Really?
    
    Calintz: But, I wanted to believe that you would live.

    *************************************************
    
    - He was not only a Hero, but he was also a priest.
    Eonis: Is that all? From his memoirs,
           it seemed like there was more...
    *** No change  ***  
    
    
    - I’m interested in what he wrote in his memoirs.
    Eonis: Me too. I don’t understand why he had to step
           down from his position as the Great Priestess before
           he went crazy... Did he do something evil because of the Light
           of Salvation?
    *** Eonis’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***

    *** Eonis’s trust in you has decreased. ***

             After all, she’s been nothin’ but trouble for us.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    
    - Yeah, but I can’t be with her all the time.

    Haren: I can’t believe it. Of all the places in the world,
           why the Ice Fields of Nordon? 
           You think we can make it back from there alive?
    **********************************************************
    
    - You’re not afraid, are you?

           Don’t try to sound cool.
           Besides, the Ice Fields are nothin’...
    *** Haren’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Chris: Stop bluffing. 
           You already know how friggin’ cold it is, right?
           I’m only going ‘cause we’ve got no other choice.
    *** Chris’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Eonis: I thought you were going because,
           “Bayer chicks are hot.”

    *****************************************

           Is there really a point to finding
           the Light of Salvation?
    *****************************************
    
    - Hugo’s very trustworthy.
    Haren: Maybe to you he is, but not to me.
           I think he might be up to something.

    *** Azel’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***

           On his mind either.
    
    
    - You don’t believe in me?
    Haren: It’s not that...
           I just have a bad feeling about this mission.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Chris: We knew this mission would be dangerous. 
           Are you chickening out now? That’s not like you.
    
    Haren: ...Ask me that again when we’re hangin’ off
           the side of a cliff.

    - Yeah, I was a bit surprised.
    Chris: You were, huh. Hahaha...
           I mean, he’s still chasing skirts at that age.
    *** Chris’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Haren: I could say the same to you.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    
    - He kind of looks like you.
    Chris: Hahahaha! For real, man. He kinda looks like – 
           Whaaaa!? Does... Does he look like me!?
           In what way does that perverted, middle-aged,
           denture-wearin’ old man look anything like me!?
    *** Chris’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Haren: In every way, you dumbass.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Eonis: Chris, you’re only getting agitated because you
           know it’s true.
    
    
    
    **************************************************
    Chris: I wonder if Justina’s got a boyfriend.
           She’s pretty cute, and she's very ladylike.
    **************************************************
    
    - What are you planning now?
    Chris: Planning...?
           I just wanna get to know her, that’s all.
           Don’t get the wrong idea.
    *** Chris’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Haren: Sure.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Chris: Wh-What!? I said don’t get the wrong idea.
    
    Maya:  ............
           (stares at Chris)
    *** Maya’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Chris: Noooo, Maya. 
           It’s not like that!
           Believe me.
    
    
    - ...Well, no rule states that priestesses can’t marry.
    Chris:   That’s right! So, then it’s okay for me to make her
             my girlfriend, isn’t it?
    *** Chris’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Haren:   You idiot! Don’t you understand there’s a chance
             she already has a boyfriend?

    Maya:  *smile*
    *** Maya’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Chris: That smile is to cheer you up.
           Man, she used to only smile at me.
    
    Haren: Hey, you can hallucinate all you want, 
           just do it somewhere else.
    
    
    - Do you enjoy being in the Tears of Blood?
    Maya:  *nod*
    *** Maya’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Chris: Of course she does! 
           Because I’m always there to protect her.

    Rianna: We need to get to Fuget safely with this 
            Mistress Ladrinne.
    
    *******************************************************
    Justina: I’m worried. This is a rather impulsive move
             for Mistress Ladrinne. I hope everything turns
             out alright.
    *******************************************************
    
    - We’ll do our best to protect her.
    Justina: Thank you.
             She’s like a mother to me.
             I can’t let anything happen to her.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Rianna:  Really?
             When I was in Maracatte, I lost my entire family
             to the war.
             I was the only one who survived...
             thanks to my divine power...
    
    Reith:   Is that so...?
    
    Justina: At the time, all I could think was,
             “Why did I survive? I don’t want this power.
             I just want to die...”
             But, Mistress Ladrinne helped me to understand
             that with my divine power I could help others.
    
    
    - Mistress Ladrinne is strong. She’ll be fine.
    Justina: Don’t assume that!
             Do you know why there are so many pretend
             Great Priestesses being sent out as decoys?
             Do you!?
             It’s because her life is in grave danger!
             She may have limitless divine power,
             but that doesn’t make her immortal.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Rianna:  What’s wrong?
             Why are you getting so worked up?
    
    Reith:   I’m sorry...
             I didn’t know...
    
    Justina: ...I’m sorry, too. I didn’t mean to yell at you.
             ...I used to hate my powers.
             My entire family died, but I lived...
             just because I had these powers.
             For a long time I couldn’t bear it...
    
    Rianna:  ......
    
    Justina: It was Mistress Ladrinne who gave me the will
             to live. That’s why I must protect her at all costs.
    
    Reith:   I see.
    
    Rianna:  No worries.
             Reith and I both want to protect her too.
             If we work together, we’ll make this mission a 
             success. 
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    
    ********************************************************
    Justina: Reith, don't you find it strange that the Yason
             are after you?
    ********************************************************
    
    - Yes, I do. I can’t understand why...
    Justina: You must try to remember. It’s very important.
             You may have some connection to the Yason.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Reith:   I’ll try...
    
    Rianna:  Why are you harassin’ her?
             If she can’t remember, then she can’t remember.
             Just because you’re in a hurry, it doesn’t give you
             the right to hurry others.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Justina: ...I’m sorry, Reith.
             Please accept my apology.
    
    Reith:   That’s okay.
    
    
    - ...Do you think I did something bad somewhere?
    Rianna:  Ahaha... You?? Do something bad??
             That’s a good one!
    
    Justina: There must be some explanation for it.
             After all, they seem o know you rather well. 
             You must regain your memory, Reith.
             Otherwise, you’ll never be able to move forward.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith:   But... But, I’m afraid that if I get my memory back, 
             something awful will happen. I’m scared...
    
    
    
    ****************************************************
    Rianna: Protecting the Great Priestess is a big job.
            I’m startin’ to get nervous.
    ****************************************************
    
    - You get nervous too...?
    Rianna:  Of course I do. I gave up workin’ as a mercenary 
             to become a housewife. So, I’m not as
             strong as I used to be.
    *** No change ***
    
    Justina: You? A housewife?
             I can’t picture that.
    
    Rianna:  Well, I may not look like a housewife,
             but I was good at choppin’ wood and carryin’ things.
    
    Reith:   ...Wait, aren’t men supposed to do these chores?
             What about cooking and cleaning?
    
    Rianna:  My husband took care of that, of course!
    
    Justina: ...And you’re proud of that?
    
    
    - You’re the strongest one here, Rianna!
    Rianna:  Hahaha... Yeah, you’re right.
             It’s been awhile since my mercenary days
             but I still got it.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Justina: Reith, you’re starting to give her a big head.
    
    Rianna:  No, she’s not. She’s just cheerin’ me up.

    *****************************************************
    Azel: This time it’s the Water Shard... We’re getting
          closer to collecting all of them. But, is this
          really the right thing to be doing?
    *****************************************************
    
    - Even if it’s wrong, as long as it ends the war...
    Azel:  Is that how it is now?
    *** Azel’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Chris: Since everyone is divided on the subject,
           I think I’ll stay neutral.
    *** Chris’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    
    - If I thought it was wrong, I'd stop right now.

    Calintz: I believe that it’s the right thing to do.
             And I’m going to make sure it stays that way.
    
    Eonis:   That’s why we follow you.
    
    
    
    *******************************************
    Eonis: Happy birthday, Calintz! 
           I wish we could throw you a party...
    *******************************************
    
    - There’s no time for that now.
    Eonis: But, it’s once a year. Why don’t you do something
           for yourself for a change?
    *** No change ***  
    
    Chris: Yeah. Let’s grab the liquor from the basement
           and get our drink on!
           How long are we just gonna let it sit there? Hmm?
    *** Chris’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Haren: Not again...
    
    
    - That’s okay. Thanks anyways.
    
    Eonis: It’s not really like you to say thank you.
           *giggle* I feel a bit embarrassed. 
    *** Eonis’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Haren: Tch... Quit giggling.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has decreased. ***

    Chris: *chuckle* Looks like you can’t handle Eonis.
    
    
    
    ****************************************
    Haren: You think this war will ever end?
    ****************************************
    
    - Someday...
    Haren:   I wasn’t looking for a vague answer like that.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Calintz: ..........
    
    Haren:   Sometimes I wonder how long we’ll have to
             continue fighting like this. 
             It’s not as we like it or anything.
    
    Eonis:   It’s true, we don’t know when it will end.
             But, we continue to fight because we have hope
             that one day it will end.
    *** Eonis’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    - Otherwise, there’s no reason to fight, is there?
    Haren: I guess...
    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Eonis: That’s not like you, Haren.
           You seem tired.
    
    Haren: I get tired of thinking about how long we’ll have to
           keep fighting.
    
    
    
    *****************************************
    Chris: Bayer, huh? I’ve never been there.
           You think it’s safe?
    *****************************************
    
    - It shouldn’t be a problem. I hear they’re friendly.
    Eonis: What are you talking about?
           They’re a closed society.
           Did you forget that?
    *** Eonis’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Chris: It’s not like you.
    *** No change ***  
    
    
    - I hear they’re not to friendly to strangers.
    Eonis: Since Involk Castle was built, they’ve been living
           in the sky.
           They don’t have much communication
           with the outside world.
           They can’t help but to be xenophobic.

    ( Before visiting Rostin’s house)
    Rianna:  Let’s look for Chris’s house and talk to Rostin.
    
    ( After the visit)
    Justina: I believe the Pnosen Library has the information
             we need. We can get there from Remie.
    
    *************************************************
    Justina: Reith, I don’t think it would be best
             for you to stay with the Tears of Blood.
    *************************************************
    
    - But... I want to be together.
    Justina: With Calintz?
    
    Reith:   Huh? That’s not what I...
    
    Justina: Reith, I don1t think you have enough experience to
             handle the dangerous work the of the Tears of Blood.
             Regardless of the immense divine power you
             possess, I think you would simply become a
              hindrance to them.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith:   ...You really think so?
    
    Rianna:  What’s so wrong with being with the one you love?
             I’m all for it, Reith.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Raul:    In the end, Reith is the one who must decide.
             Justina, I don’t think you should be influencing
             her decision.
    *** Raul’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    - Am I just extra baggage?
    Justina: I’m sorry to be the one to tell you,
             but at this point in time, yes you are.
             However, once you recover your memory,
             you’ll know exactly where you belong.
             That may be a good time to leave
             the Tears of Blood.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Rianna:  Hey, don’t scare her like that.
             Reith, don’t pay attention to Justina.
             The last thing you wanna be right now is
             depresses.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Raul:    That’s right, do whatever you feel is right. 
             It’s your decision.
    
    
    
    **********************************************
    Justina: Reith, if two of your friends were in
             great danger, which would you save? 
             If you save both, you’ll die.
             So, what would you do?
    **********************************************
    
    - I don’t know...
    Justina: That’s not an answer.
             When the situation is place right in front of you,
             there won’t be any time for you to deliberate.
             A decision must be made!
    *** Justina’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    
    - I’d save both of them, even if it meant I’d die.
    Justina: Would you? Could you really do that?
             Is it so easy to give up your life?
    *** Justina’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Reith:   Maybe not. But, if I’m the only one who can
             save them both, the I would risk dying.
    
    Rianna:  Justina, why did you go and ask such a stupid
             question like that? 
             Don’t you worry, Reith, ya hear? 
             If Reith says she’s to it, then she’s do it.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Justina: It’s a question asked of those who aspire to
             become the Great Priestess. 
             Unlike a normal priestess, the role of the Great
             Priestess requires personality and character.
             The aspirants are judges on the coherence and
             the complexity of their answers.
    
    Rianna:  She doesn’t wanna be the Great Priestess,
             for cryin’ out loud!
    
    
    
    **************************************************
    Rianna: I hope you get your memory back this time.
    **************************************************
    
    - Thank you so much for caring all about me.
    Rianna:  Hahaha...
             It’s kinda embarrassing being thanked like that.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Justina: do you really think such trifling words will 
             be of any consolation?
    
    Rianna:  Hey!
    
    
    - I’m sorry... I’m causing so much trouble.
    Rianna:  What are ya talkin’ about?
             You’re not the only one.
             I mean, I’m causing trouble by looking for my
             husband.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Justina: Huh? You knew you were causing trouble?
    
    Rianna:  Hey!!
    
    
    
    *****************************************************
    Rianna: You planning’ to stay with the Tears of Blood
            even after you get your memory back?
    *****************************************************
    
    - Yes, that’s what I want to do.
    Rianna:  They’re all nice, so I think it’ll be okay.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Justina: That’s a childish play. At the very least, Rianna
             and I will leave the Tears of Blood as soon
             as we fulfill our objectives.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Reith:   Is that so...
    
    Raul:    I’ll stay by your side.
    
    Rianna:  Who the hell wants to have and old geezer like
             you next to them?
    
    
    - I might have to leave.
    Rianna:  Why? You’re doing so well here.
    
    Reith:   Lately, that’s how I’ve been feeling...
             Like there’s a place I have to return to...
             Where everyone is waiting for me...
             Isn’t that strange?
    
    Justina: If there’s a place you must return to, 
             then you must go.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***

    Raul: I’m grateful to you for saving me, but do you
          really believe in me? I might stab you in the
          back later on, you know?
    ***************************************************
    
    - I feel like I can believe in you.
    Raul:    You say funny things.
             Aren’t you supposed to say that when you meet
             the man of your destiny?
    *** Raul’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith:   ?
    
    Rianna:  What the hell does that mean?
             Put a sock in it, ya old geezer!
    
    Raul:    Geez... You don’t even know how old I am, 
             so stop calling me an old geezer.
    
    Justina: Reith, you put your trust in a lot of people,
             but it is best if you would refrain from doing so.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    
    - Oh, then I’m not supposed to trust others?
    Raul:   See, Now she’s stuck.
    *** Raul’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Rianna: *chuckle* This is a good one, alright.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    
    *******************************************
    Raul: No one believes in me but you, Reith.
          Right? You believe in me, don’t you?
    *******************************************
    
    - Yes, I believe in you.
    Raul:   There you have it! As long as Reith believes in me,
            I’ll serve the Tears of Blood with every inch of
            my body.
    *** Raul’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Rianna: Please stop phrasing your words like that.
            They could be easily misconstrued.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    
    -  To tell you the truth. I don’t really know.
    Raul:    Hey, hey. That’s not nice.
    *** Raul’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Justina: Reith said that on a spur of the moment.
             Right?
    *** Justina’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith:   Yes, but... I felt that It would be reassuring if Raul
             was there. I don’t know why, but I felt like I could
             believe in him.
    
    Raul:    Hey... Are we meant to be?
             Am I meeting my destiny?
    
    Rianna:  No! But, keep it up and you could be meeting
             my fist!

    Azel: Lehas... I never thought that... that would be
          the last time we'd ever see her.
          We weren’t able to do anything for her...
          Captain, what should we do?
    ****************************************************
    
    - Everyone’s at a loss right now.
    Azel:    Captain...
    *** Azel’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Calintz: I think that in honor of Lehas, we should 
             complete this mission.
             Just sitting here feeling depresses won’t do us
             any good.
    
    Azel:    Yessir!
    
    
    - Why are you so full of regrets?
    Eonis: Calintz, I understand how you feel, but don’t be
           so insensitive. Everyone here feels just as bad.
    *** Eonis’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Azel:  I’m sorry, Captain.
           I shouldn’t have said that.
    *** Azel’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Haren: Enough already.
           The more you keep talking, the more you keep
           sticking your foot in your mouth.
           What else do ya wanna hear?
           If you want someone to comfort you, 
           go get a nanny.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    
    
    ****************************************************
    Eonis: Everyone’s so depressed...
           I don’t know what to do.
           I know it’s difficult, but we must persevere.
           It’s such a shame...
    ****************************************************
    
    - There’s nothing that can be said.
    Eonis: I know. I’m sorry.
    *** Eonis’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Chris: Let’s not give up, everyone.
           We’ve been through a lot together.
           This is no time to quit.
    
    
    - Should we just quit?
    Eonis: Of course not. What are you saying?
           It’s just that I can’t apologize enough to Lehas...
    *** Eonis’s trust in you has decreased. ***

           I never imagined that that would be the last time
           we’d meet.
    **********************************************************
    
    - There’s nothing you can do about it.
    Haren: I... I want to think like that... but, I can’t.
           The day Felicia died, we got into an argument,
           over something stupid.
           I didn’t think it was going to be out last time 
           together then. And now...
           I don’t know what to think...
    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    - I think you were at fault that day.
    Haren: You’re right... I was to blame!
           Dammit...
           Who would’ve though that was gonna happen?
    *** Haren’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Eonis: It wasn’t all your fault, Haren.
           Lehas was a bit sensitive that day, too.
    
    
    
    ********************************************************
    Chris: Really. I don’t know what to say. 
           I promised myself that I wouldn’t let anyone die,
           but... I guess I failed her.
    ********************************************************
    
    - Yeah...
    Chris:   ......
    
    Calintz: I’m the one who should’ve known her the best...
             Yet, I never know what she was thinking...
    
    Chris:   I won’t let this happen again...
    *** Chris’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    
    - Not everything can go your way.
    Chris: Don’t say that. It’s not like that will change
           everything that’s happened.
    *** Chris’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Haren: Are you sayin’ that if we work hard, everything
           will be fine? I think that’s a load of bull.

    *****************************
    Justina: Reith, are you okay?
    *****************************
    
    - I want to return to the tears of Blood...
    Justina: Reith...
    
    Reith:   Is that dumb? I’m so stupid...
    
    Justina: Normally I would say yes, it is dumb.
             Not this time, though.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    - Yes... I’m okay.
    Justina: You don’t have to pretend that everything is
             okay. I know it’s trying, but you can rely on us in 
             times like this.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith:   But, it’s my fault. 
             Lehas was killed because of me...
    
    Raul:    Think about it like this.
             Let’s say you brought an apple from a fruit stand.
             While you were eating the apple, a piece of it
             Became lodged in your throat causing you to
             choke and die.
             Now, would you hold a grudge against the fruit 
             stand guy for selling you the apple?
    
    Reith:   No... But...
    
    Raul:    It’s the same idea.
             Even though your relationship with Sdei
             indirectly brought about this misfortune,
             you yourself didn’t cause it to happen.
             You never intended for things to turn out the
             way they did.
             The same way the fruit stand guy didn’t know
             selling that apple to you would cause your
             death... right?
    
    Rianna:  What are you talking about?
             Who the hell’s this fruit stand guy, anyways?
    
    Justina: .......
    
    
    
    ***************************************************
    Rianna: I know it’s hard, but don’t give up.
            I’m sorry, I don’t know what else to say...
    ***************************************************
    
    - Thank you for your encouraging words.
    Rianna: You’re welcome.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Raul:   So, you do know how to cheer people up.
            I guess you are a woman after all. Hmm...
    
    Rianna: Shut up, ya old bud!
    
    
    - You too, Rianna.
    Rianna: I’m sorry. Guess you didn’t need to hear all that.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith:  No, I’m glad to know that you have a lot going 
            on too. Let’s give it our all.
    
    
    
    
    *****************************************************
    Raul: Well, I have no other way of explaining it. 
          Sometimes bad things just happen. 
          Blaming yourself will only make it worse.
          In addition, your close friends will be worried
          about your well-being.
    *****************************************************
    
    - I’m sorry. I didn’t know.
    Raul:  Well, it’s a matter of fact, so don’t have to be
           so distraught over it.
    *** Raul’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith: I really am useless.
           Justina and Rianna were both worried about me, 
           and I...
           Oh, you were too, of course.
    
    Raul:  All you can do is realize that now.
    
    Reith: I will...
    
    
    - I’m sorry...
    Rianna: Hey, old man, what’re you making Reith cry for?
            Hey... You’re not tryin’ to pull anything on her,
            are ya?
    
    Raul:   Stop treating me like I’m some kind of pervert.
    
    Reith:  It’s no one’s fault. It’s just... It’s just I don’t 
            know how to apologize to everyone...
    
    Rianna: Why do ya need to apologize for?
    
    Reith:  You were all so worried about me, yet all I could 
            think about was myself. ...I’m so sorry...
    
    Rianna: This old fart is just a meanie.
            Did you lecture her about tow she’s not the 
            only one that’s having a hard time?
    
    Raul:   No! No, I didn’t think.

    *********************************
    
    - I don’t know. I’ve never really thought about it...
    Azel:  Really? Are you trying to hide it from me?
           The other day I saw you two returning to 
           the Great Temple together.
    *** Azel’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Eonis: Oh may, is that true?
           I wish I could have seen that.
    *** Eonis’s trust in you has increased. ***

    Azel: I wonder what the general is going to do once he
          collects all the shards of the Light of Salvation.
    ********************************************************
    
    - He said that he plans to end the war.
    Azel:    Is that so?
    *** No change ***  
    
    Calintz: And I... I accepted his proposition.
    
    Haren:   I don’t care how it’s done, just as long as it ends
             the war.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    - He won't allow it to be used for evil.
    Azel:    Captain...
    *** Azel’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Calintz: I believe in Hugo, but I don’t trust the Alliance.
    
    Haren:   He may be up to something too, ya know.
             You shouldn’t put too much trust in him just 
             because he’s an old friend.
    
    
    
    ****************************************************
    Eonis: Do we have to keep it a secret from the Great
           Priestess too? The Light of Salvation is much
           too important to conceal.
    ****************************************************
    
    - I promised Hugo.
    Eonis: I know, but...
    *** Eonis’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Azel:  A promise is a promise. 
           We have to keep it a secret.
    *** Azel’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    - I don’t want to hide it from Mistress Ladrinne.
    Eonis: I know.
           Even if it was promised to General Agreian, 
           keeping it a secret the entire time...
           Shouldn’t we report this to her, instead?
    *** Eonis’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Azel:  But, we can’t just break our promise.
           That would betray the general’s trust in us.
    *** Azel’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    
    
    ************************************************
    Eonis: I’m glad you’ve made up with Reith.

    ************************************************
    
    - Don’t tease me.
    Eonis:   Uh oh! You’re turning red.
             That’s unlike you... but I think it’s cute.
    *** Eonis’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***

           Felicia died.
    **********************************************************
    
    - You’ll continue fighting then? Even without us?
    Haren:   Don’t say things like that.
             If you guys are planning to leave all the hard 
             stuff to me, I’ll kick your asses.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Calintz: *chuckle*
    
    
    - Revenge alone can only take you so far.
    Haren:   But, what else so I have?
             I’ve come this far purely on my desire for revenge.
             What else do I need?
    *** Haren’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Calintz: Just don’t think you need to do it all by yourself.
    
    Eonis:   That’s right. We’ve been through all of this
             together. You don’t have to distance yourself now.

    Chris: Lately I've been wondering if there’s really
           any point to continuing this fight.
    ***************************************************
    
    - Have you lost your desire for revenge?
    Chris:   Of course not! It’s just... Whenever I look at 
             Maya, I start thinking... Maybe it’s not so bad to
             just live in peace.
             I mean, the Alliance is just fine with the
             war.
    *** Chris’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Calintz: I don’t agree with that.
    
    Haren:   Neither do I! 
             If you’re serious, then leave the Tears of Blood!
    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    
    - There may not be any point to it.
    Chris: It’s strange. Because of us, there are more and
           more people becoming like us.
    *** Chris’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Haren: You agreed to fight knowing that.
           Don’t wuss out on us now.

           But, he never did anything in front of my ma.
           Actually... My ma died trying to protect him.
           She jumped in the way of a Yason attack.
    ****************************************************
    
    - She must’ve really loved him.
    Chris: Isn’t that strange?
           She was always nagging him before.
           Anyways, it was ma’s death that triggered
           a big blowout between me and my old man.
           That’s why I left home.

    Chris: Ugh... D-Don’t day that!
           Although... I can’t completely deny it.
           ...But, I’ve never cheated on anyone.
    *** Chris’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Haren: Of course you haven’t. That’s because you’ve
           never been with anyone in the first place!
           You’ve been outdone by your old man.

    Maya:  *smile*
    *** Maya’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Chris: Whoa, I guess they don’t need me anymore! 
           Their hearts are connected!!
    
    Haren: Shut up!
    
    
    - What’s wrong?
    Maya:  *frown*
    *** Maya’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Chris: Man, you still need work,
           Want me to give you some lessons?

    Before receiving Astal’s letter
    Reith: Let’s go look for Rianna’s husband at the 
           Lightning Ruins.
    
    
    **************************************************
    Justina: Things may have calmed down, 
             but he still hasn’t proved his innocence.
    **************************************************
    
    - I know. Calintz is suspicious...
    Justina: It may be difficult to hear, but just because he
             saved you, it doesn’t mean he’s honorable.
             There are plenty of people who help others
             for ulterior motives.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Rianna:  You don’t have to go that far.
             Reith believing in Calintz is like you
             believing in Mistress Ladrinne.
    
    
    - At least it’s over.
    Justina: You should remain cautious. 
             You don’t know what’s going to happen.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Raul:    Reith, you believe in Calintz, right?
    *** Raul’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith:   Yes, I believe in him.
    
    Rianna:  That’s right. 
             Justina, you believe in Mistress Ladrinne,
             don’t ya?
             Even if someone accused her of wrong
             doing you’d still believe in her, right?
    Well, it’s the same for Reith.
    
    
    
    ****************************************************
    Rianna: You believe in Calintz?
            Don’t you know what he did at Involk Castle?
    ****************************************************
    
    - I believe in him.
    Rianna: What’re ya gonna do if he’s guilty?
            The Tears of Blood operate only for revenge.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith:  Even so... I think Calintz had something in mind.
    
    Raul:   You have to believe in your comrades.
    *** Raul’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Rianna: And what about you? Never mind.
            Just stay outta this!
    
    
    - I don’t know...
    Rianna:  I know the feeling. Well, there wasn’t really
             anything we could’ve done anyways.
             At least he’s been released.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Justina: That still doesn’t solve anything.
             We must remain cautious.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    
    
    ***************************************************
    Raul: Whether or not you believe in Calintz,
          that’s your decision to make. 
          I don’t have anything to say on the matter.
          My belief or disbelief in him arises from not
          knowing him that well. 
    ***************************************************
    
    - I believe in Calintz.
    Raul:  I see. That’s good. But, you should be prepared
           to take responsibility for your own decisions.
           Understand?
    *** Raul’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith: Of course.
    
    
    - I want to believe in Calintz. But...
    Raul:   There can be no hesitation.
            Trust cannot be changed at your whim.
            Even if the world is against you, even if it’s
            the truth, you must hold to your conviction. 
            That’s the true meaning of trust.
    *** Raul’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Rianna: Ya think it’s easy as that? 
            She wants to believe in him, but she’s confused
            because all that’s happened.
            I can understand how she fells.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Raul:   She shouldn’t believe in him then.
            She’s free to make her own decisions.
            Whether of not one stays on the same path they
            originally started out on completely depends on
            the individual.
    
    
    
    
    After receiving Astal’s letter
    Justina: Let’s ho to Lake Astine. Rianna’s husband
             should be there.
    
    
    ********************************************************
    Justina: To be honest with you, I think he’s suspicious.
             Why is he contacting Rianna all of a sudden?
             And, how did he know where we were?
    ********************************************************
    
    - That’s a good point. I’m a bit worried, too.
    Justina: Good. You need to be more cautious.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Rianna:  What the heck, you two! 
             If you don’t trust him, I’ll go by myself.
             You don’t have to tag along with me.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith:   Rianna...
    
    
    - Maybe he just wants to see Rianna.
    Justina: I hope your overly optimistic view is correct.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Rianna:  What’re you trying to say? Reith is wrong?
             There’s no doubt he wrote that letter to meet
             with me...
             Do you think he’s plannin’ to do something to me?
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Justina: I just pray he doesn’t.
    
    Raul:    Calm down, you two. It’s your beloved, right?
             Nothing will happen.
             If he tries anything, I’ll be there to protect you.
    
    Justina: ...Can you not act like Chris?
    
    
    
    *******************************************
    Rianna: He contacts me now!? He’s so cruel.
    *******************************************
    
    - Maybe he has something to ask of you.
    Rianna:  Yeah... That may be it.
             Something might’ve happened, 
             so he needs me to wipe his ass...
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith:   Huh...? I didn’t mean it like that...
    
    Justina: It’s best to be prepared for anything.
             Especially since he knew Rianna was here.
             Which means he’s been following u.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    - Maybe he just wants to see you.
    Rianna:  Y-You think so...?
             I sure hope so.
             Hahaha...
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Justina: How about we think about this realistically?
             How did he know we were here?
             And why would he write a letter first?
    *** Justina’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Rianna:  You don’t have to put it like that, ya know!
    
    Justina: Besides... Weren’t you dumped?
    
    Rianna:  Hey!!
    
    
    
    *************************************
    Raul: I bet Rianna’s thrilled. But...
    *************************************
    
    - Is something wrong?
    Raul:  Just unnecessary worries. But, Rianna’s so-called
           husband is here somewhere. He may have been 
           watching us the entire time.
    *** Raul’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Reith: That’s stange...
    
    
    - For now, let’s just be happy for her!
    Raul:  ..........
    
    Reith: I understand what you’re trying to say.
           Justina’s suspicious about it, too.
           But, for Rianna’s sake, let’s put our concerns
           aside for now.
    
    Raul:  I guess I was being rude.
           You’re right. Let’s just be happy for Rianna.
    *** Raul’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Raul: The best way to protect Rianna is to go to Emon.
    
    ( after the Raul-Rianna “debate” beside the save point)
    Rianna: Sorry Reith... But, I need to go to Rance first.
            I want to stop by my house. You can get to
            Rance from the Doren ruins.
    
    ****************************************
    Justina: So, can you believe in him now?
    ****************************************
    
    - I don’t know. Why did it have to come to this?
    Justina: Of course you don’t know.
             Even I was surprised by his actions.
             But, I don’t think it’s like him to do something 
             like this to a comrade.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Rianna:  What’s going on?
             It’s not like YOU should be defending him.
             Let’s just it.
             He was just a lying scumbag to begin with.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    
    - I’m disappointed. But, maybe he had a reason.
    Rianna:  .........
    
    Justina: That’s just like you.
             Even I was surprised at his actions.
             But, I don’t think it’s like him to do something 
             like this to a comrade.
             He is a mercenary, however, and he can be
             heartless when he needs to.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Raul:    Reith wants to believe in Calintz. 
             It’s not fair to make her suspicious of him.
             Besides, you don’t have proof of your accusations,
             do you?
    *** Raul’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    
    
    **************************************
    Justina: What are you going to do now?
             You can't just keep running.
    **************************************
    
    - Let’s go to Amabat to prove Rianna’s innocence.
    Justina: You’ll be caught by The Holy Order of Eryu
             long before that.
             Besides, convincing them won’t be easy.
             They’re not going to change their minds unless
             we have substantial information.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Raul:    If I go with you, we might be able to make it.
    
    Justina: You’re overly confident in your own abilities.
             If you underestimate Eryu, you’ll be in trouble.
    
    Rianna:  Forget it. Those fools aren’t going to believe me.
             I’ll just get thrown in the pen.
             But, thank you, Reith. I didn’t know you would 
             go that far for me.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith:   Rianna...
    
    Rianna:  But, it’s too risky.
             I don’t want to put you guys in danger.
    
    
    - I want to talk with Calintz.
    Justina: You want to talk to him?
    
    Reith:   I was too distraught at the time to notice,
             but Calintz never really gave an answer. 
             I don’t think he would’ve just accepted
             the warrant for Rianna’s arrest.
             You probably think I’m being naive.
    
    Justina: No. Actually, I agree with you... to a certain extent.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith:   Huh?
    
    Justina: He may have been forced to obey those orders.
             Or perhaps he thought we would run.
             He can always rely on Mistress Ladrinne and 
             General Agreian for help.-
    
    Reith:   Then shouldn’t we turn back?
    
    Rianna:  Forget about it!
             He’s in cahoots with The Holy Order of Eryu.
             You both know that he’s the type of person to
             do exactly as he’s ordered.
             Reith, you need to pipe down.
             How long are you going to keep covering for him!?
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith:   Don’t say things like that, Rianna...
             Calintz isn’t that kind of person.
    
    Rianna:  Really? Then why did it turn out like this?
             Why did those Clerics show up at the perfect 
             moment? Why? Huh!?
    
    Raul:    Hey now, this isn’t the time to be fighting each
             other. We should be spending our time getting out of
             here.
    
    Justina: *sigh* This is going to be difficult.
    
    
    
    ************************************************
    Riana: It’s no use talking to me.
           I’m not going back to the Tears of Blood.
    ************************************************
    
    - But, we don’t even know Calintz’s intentions.
    Rianna:  So what?
             Are you saying that he was trying to save us?
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith:   I... I don’t know, but at the very least I don’t think
             that he’s the kind of person who would capture us 
             and hand us over to them.
    
    Justina: That’s true. Reith does have a point.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Rianna:  What’s gotten into you? Now you’re defending Calintz?
    
    Justina: Don’t get snippy with me.
             I’m simply looking at things objectively.
    
    
    - I think he overdid it a little, too.
    Rianna: See?
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith:  Yes...
    
    Rianna: Let me tell you something, he overdid it a lot,
            not a little. I don’t care what his reasons were,
            you don’t go handin’ over your buddies.
    
    Raul:   No I think you’re overdoing it yourself.
            I don’t know Calintz that well, 
            but I don’t think that’s that heartless.
    
    Rianna: How would you know? 
            You haven’t known him that long.
    
    
    
    **************************************************
    Riana: Did Astal really love me? I don’t know.
           Maybe he was fooling me from the start,
           just having fun with me...
           When I think that way, I feel so miserable.
    **************************************************
    
    - ...I don’t know what he thought of you either.
    Rianna: I know. I mean, even I don’t know...
            That cheater... *sigh*
    *** No change ***  
    
    Reith:  Rianna...
    
    Rianna: But, even if something about him was false...
            It’s still the truth to me.
            I was happy when I was with him...
            I have plenty of good memories.
            I don’t wanna think of them as all fake.
            I loved him... So, maybe I wanted to end
            everything with my own hands.
    
    
    - I think that he loved you.
    Rianna: You think so? He loved a woman who could 
            stab him in the back?
    
    Reith:  It’s now what I meant. He... He might have
            wanted you to put an end to it all.
            I think I understand now. 
            He had something he had to do.
            That’s why he had to leave you.
    
    Rianna: Why...? We could’ve just gone together.
    
    Reith:  I don’t think he wanted to endanger you.
            The Turibo is a secret organization, right?
            There were probably a lot of things you weren’t
            supposed to know about.
    
    Rianna: That’s stupid.
            Trying to handle everything on your own...
            Idiot...
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    
    
    *************************************************
    Raul: You don’t have to put on a brave face.
          We all know that these are difficult times.
    *************************************************
    
    - Why did Calintz do that?
    Raul:  I ask myself the same question.
           But, I’m sure that he’s not the type of person
           to act without thinking.
    *** No change ***  
    
    Reith: I want to believe in Calintz.
    
    
    - What would you do, Raul?
    Raul:    Oh, you want to hear my valuable opinion?
    *** Raul’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Reith:   Huh...? Oh, yes...
    
    Raul:    I think our first priority is to lay low somewhere,
             somewhere safe.
             After that we can meet up with the Tears of
             Blood, and find out the truth.
             There’s always the option to ask for help from
             the Great Priestess.
    
    Justina: ..........
    
    Raul:    The Great Priestess I know isn’t the type of person
             who would ignore the tyranny of The Holy
             Order of Eryu.
             I’m assuming that she hasn’t heard the details
             of Rianna’s arrest warrant yet because most of
             it has been fabricated.
    
    
    
    *****************************************************
    Raul: Come to think of it, we still need to get you
          your memory back.
          Where was the first place you began to remember
          things?
    *****************************************************
    
    - Fuget...
    Raul:  Hmmm...
    
    Reith: I seem to remember living near Fuget when I was
           a child with my father and little sister.
           I remember it was very boring.
           But, that’s all I can remember.
    
    Raul:  I see. I heard about that. Justina told me.
    *** Raul’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    - Involk Castle...
    Raul:  Involk Castle? 
           I thought it was Fuget.
    *** Raul’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Reith: Oh, yeah. 
           Fuget came first.
    
    Raul:  ...But, since you mentioned Involk Castle,
           that means you’ve been there, right?
    
    Reith: Yes... Isn’t that strange? 
           When did I go there?
           I was wearing black clothes, and...
           I was talking to someone.
           I remember being quite agitated at the time.
    
    Raul:  And...?
    
    Reith: I needed to do something...
           but I wasn’t allowed to do...
           I pretended it was nothing, 
           but I was really worried and anxious. 
    
    Raul:  What did Involk Castle help you remember?
    
    Reith: A country village...
           There was injured people, and the Yason...
           But, why was I there? I was just watching...
           My heart was aching.

    ********************************************
    Justina: I was surprised by your insistence.
    ********************************************
    
    - I didn’t want to let this chance get away.
    Justina: I know it’s the only way, but it’s still very risky.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Reith:   I-I know.
    
    Rianna:  Even if Reith didn’t day, we would’ve chosen
             this path anyways. I’m not goin’ to sit here and let 
             Eryu catch me.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Justina: That’s true.
    
    
    - Was I rash?
    Justina: Just a bit. Nevertheless, I think it was appropriate.
             In situations like this, we have no other choice but to
             take drastic measures.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    
    
    ***********************************************
    Rianna: I wonder if everything will be okay.
            Fighting the Yason is one thing.
            But, fighting The Holy Order of Eryu...
    ***********************************************
    
    - I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have been so stubborn.
    Rianna: No, it’s okay.
            I have to meet with Mistress Ladrinne anyways.
            Besides, I don’t wanna be called a spy just 
            because I had something to do with Astal.
            I think this is the best way.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    
    - You’re worried, too?
    Rianna:  What’re you sayin’?
             I’m your run-of-the-hill human.
             There are times when I let my emotions get
             the best of me, and there are times when I am
             full of regrets, too.
    *** No change ***  
    
    Justina: Really?
    
    Rianna:  Oh, shut up.
    
    Raul:    To avoid regrets in life, you must be careful
             when making decisions.
    
    Rianna:  It is not easy, ya know.
    
    Raul:    When you get older, you’ll learn how to control
             yourself. 
             You know, when I was younger, I was a
             hot-tempered fool blinded by momentary fame.
    
    Reith:   You were?
    
    Raul:    You don’t believe me?
             Everyone’s hot-blooded in their youth.
             Young people all want to stand out from
             the crowd.
    
    
    
    *****************************************************
    Raul: I think it’s too dangerous to return to Amabat.
    *****************************************************
    
    - But, we may be able to bring the war to end.
    Raul:    Talks with the Yason? The Holy Order of Eryu
             would never approve of that.
    *** Raul’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith:   But, in this instance, I think Mistress Ladrinne
             would understand.
    
    Raul:    Is that all? How do you feel about exposing your
             friends to such a perilous situation by asking them
             to journey to Amabat?
             Thanks to your stubbornness, we may all be in danger.
    
    Reith:   I...
    
    Raul:    Sharing your opinion is fine, but you must also
             be prepared to suffer the consequences. 
    
    Reith:   I’m sorry...
    
    Rianna:  It’s okay. Either way, I have to meet the Great
             Priestess, and prove my innocence.
             This will the a good opportunity. 
             Thanks to Reith, I was able to bit the bullet.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Justina: I believe that a compromise with the Yason is 
             virtually impossible, but I know Mistress
             Ladrinne would agree to it.
             Therefore, I will do as she wished.
    
    
    - I’m sorry for being so stubborn.
    Raul:  Hmm?
    
    Reith: It’s just... you and Justina have nothing to do
           with this, yet I keep urging you to go.
    
    Raul:  Well, none of us seem to mind.
    *** Raul’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith: Huh?
    
    Raul:  In order to prove that Rianna’s not guilty,
           we have to go to Amabat anyways.
           We all know that it’s a dangerous situation,
           so we were waiting for the right opportunity.
           And I believe this is it.

    Justina: Even if I’m in danger, you have to keep going.
             You can do it, right?
    *******************************************************
    
    - I... can’t.
    Justina: Why did you accept such an important task, if 
             you can’t even promise me that much?
    *** Justina’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith:   But, I can’t just leave you behind.
             I’ll save you somehow.
    
    Rianna:  That’s right. 
             We can’t just abandon out friends.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Justina: And what if it ends up costing your life.
    
    Reith:   Still, I wouldn’t just leave you!
             I won’t ever give up on my troops!
    
    Rianna:  Did you say “troops”?
    
    Reith:   I don’t know, did I?
    
    Rianna:  Reith, did you have troops before?
    
    Reith:   ...Ummm... I really don’t know.
    
    Rianna:  Maybe you were some sort of mercenary or
             somethin’ before you lost your memory.
             ...Yeah, right.
             The day a timid little girl like you can be a 
             mercenary is the day the sun rises in the west.
             Hahahahaha!
    
    Raul:    ..........
    
    
    - Okay. But if that happens, I’m sorry!
    Justina: It looks like you’ve made up your mind.
             I like that.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Rianna:  Wait a minute – that’s not like you at all.
             There’s no way you’d ever abandon a friend 
             in need.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith:   Well, I might if there was no other choice.
             But, I’d rather avoid situation like that.
    
    Justina: Seems like you’re not as sure as I thought.
    
    Reith:   ...How could anyone desert someone? 
             How could they just turn their backs on them...?
             *sniff*
    
    Rianna:  There, there, don’t cry.
             Hey, why’d you have to make her cry?
    
    Raul:    I’ll protect you all so that it won’t ever happen.
    
    Justina: You will. What proof do you have?
    
    Raul:    Believe in me.
             I’ll protect you.
    
    Reith:   ...Okay.
    
    
    
    ****************************************************
    Rianna: Reith, when is this war going to end? 
            Is there any guarantee that what we’re doin’
            isn’t a total waste?
    ****************************************************
    
    - I don’t think war will ever go away.
    Rianna: ..........
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Reith:  Oh, don’t misunderstand me. When everyone
            disagrees, the only thing left to do is fight. Wars 
            begin over the stupidest things. 
            Even if there’s peace, it won’t last forever. But,
            I want to protect that peace, ever if it means
            there will be bloodshed.
    
    Rianna: Ummmm... You don’t seem to be yourself.
    
    Reith:  Huh? Really?
    
    Raul:   But, those were inspiring words.
    
    Reith:  You think so? You don’t think I’m being too
            optimistic?
    
    Raul:   There are people right here risking their lives to
            fight for peace.
    
    
    - Can’t we make it mean something?
    Rianna:  You’re right.
    *** No change ***  
    
    Reith:   Even if this war ends, peace might only last
             a short while.
             Both humans and Yason are foolish, so they
             might start fighting again at any moment. 
             But, there will always be people who’ll risk their
             lives for that brief moment, and I would gladly 
             shed my blood with them...
    
    Rianna:  R-Reith?
    
    Reith:   Hm? What?
    
    Rianna:  Man, that was scary. 
             You were like a totally different person.
    
    Reith:   Huh? What do you mean?
    
    Justina: ...Perhaps she is starting to revert to her old self.
    
    
    
    ***************************************************
    Raul: A lot of different memories have been popping
          into your head, right? 
          If you ask me, I don’t think your someone
          ordinary.
    ***************************************************
    
    - It doesn’t matter who I am, does it?
    Raul:   Well, that comment tells me you haven’t 
            recovered your memory yet.
    *** Raul’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Reith:  Why? Do you think I’ll change once I get my
            memory back?
    
    Raul:   I don’t know. You may have been a completely 
            different person before.
    
    Reith:  Even so, I don’t think my desire to end the war
            will ever change.
    
    Raul:   How can you be so sure?
    
    Rianna: I don’t think she’ll change.
            I don’t know how to put it, but I doubt that a
            person’s true character can change just because
            they lost their memory. 
            Besides, I believe in Reith.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    
    - I want to know, too.
    Raul:  ..........
    
    Reith: Sometimes, I worry.
           What if the old me was someone really evil?
           What if the Yason are after me because I did
           something horrible to them?
    
    Raul:  So, you have been thinking about it.
    *** Raul’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith: Even if I do get my memory back, 
           I don’t think I’ll ever be the old me anymore,
           not after all I’ve been through.
           I want to continue the way I am now, 
           even if it’s nothing like used to be.
    
    Raul:  So, that’s your answer, huh?

    **********************************************************
    Justina: I can’t believe Master Seiton was assassinated...
             And at a time like this. 
             There’s no other explanation for it other than
             someone knew about the secret talks in advance
             and took measures to stop them.
    **********************************************************
    
    - The Holy Order of Eryu? Maybe the Yason?
    Justina: Don’t play dumb, Reith. 
             The only people who knew about it were 
             Master Seiton, us... and the Tears of Blood.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith:   But... Calintz would never...
    
    Raul:    He’s definitely suspicious, but I don’t think he did it.
    
    Justina: I’m not 100% positive either.
    
    
    - Do you suspect Calintz?
    Justina: I’m sorry... but yes, I do.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Reith:   You can’t not suspect him in that situation.
    
    Rianna:  Cheer up. I, for one, believe in Calintz.
             I just have a hunch that it wasn’t him.
    
    Reith:   Me too... I don’t believe Calintz did it either.
    
    
    
    ***************************************************
    Rianna: What was Raul thinking, hiding his identity
            from us all the time?
    ***************************************************
    
    - I think I understand why.
    Rianna: There ain’t nothin’ in the world you can’t 
            understand.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith:  No, I really do understand. 
            Being one of The Eight Heroes sounds nice, but it
            must have been a heavy load for him to carry. 
            Having all those expectations placed on him, 
            everyone watching his every move, 
            it must have been too much for him to handle.
    
    Raul:   I knew Reith would understand.
            Man, no matter where I go, all the ladies are
            chasing after me. It’s hard being so popular.
    
    Rianna: Shut you yap!
    
    
    - I know, but I don’t think Raul is a bad person.
    Rianna:  I don’t think he’s bad either...
             I just wanna know what he was thinking.
    *** Rianna’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Justina: The Eight Heroes are much older than us...
             It was about 50 years ago, so...
             We can’t really judge them by their looks.
    
    Rianna:  That’s right! He’s not an old man...
             He’s a straight-up geezer!

    Justina: I’m not worried about you; I’m worried

             it’ll only make matters worse.

    Rianna:  you sure seem confident...
    
    Reith:   It’ll come in handy when everyone’s tired,

    Justina: *giggle* So you say.
    
    
    - Am I that much trouble?
    Justina: I hate to say, but yes.

             to anyone. In fact, I’ll protect you all.

            important to you than the rest of us?

            happen to Calintz? Sacrificing yourself for
            others doesn’t solve anything.
            What about the people you leave behind?
            How will they feel?
    
    Reith:  But then, who will – 
    
    Raul:   Hey, cut the depressive talk. All we have to do is
            come back alive, right? We haven’t even left. 
    
    
    
    ********************
    Raul: Are you ready?
    ********************
    
    - Yes.
    Raul:  The look in your eyes has changed.
           You’re more serious, now. 
    *** Raul’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith: My friends’ lives are at stake, after all.
    
    Raul:  Well, try not to think about it. If you’re too
           nervous, you’ll get careless. Keep your
           composure so you’re ready for anything.
    
    Reith: Okay. Thanks, Raul.
    
    
    - I don’t know what to do.
    Raul:  Hey, try being more optimistic...
    
    Reith: There’s not much point being nervous, is there? 
           But, this isn’t the first time I’ve felt this way.
    
    Raul:  It’s like that for everyone. I’ve been around
           a long time, but I still get nervous. No matter
           how many times your life is in danger,
           you’ll never get used to near-death expressions.

          Why did he agree to that?

    Azel:  That’s what I like about him, too.
    *** Azel’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith: I think that’s why Calintz has such good friends.
    
    
    - Don’t you know him by now?
    Azel:  That’s not what I meant... I know how he is...
           That’s why it makes me so mad!
    *** No change ***  
    
    Chris: Azel, just leave it at that. She probably feels
           the same as you.
    *** Chris’s trust in you has increased. ***

           by Calintz's side.

    *** Eonis’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***

    Eonis: Because... You give his life purpose...
    
    Reith: Eonis...
    
    Eonis: I want you two to be happy together.
    
    Reith: What about you?
    
    Eonis: Me? *giggle* The one I like is still thinking 
           about his old girlfriend...
           But, eventually I’ll win him over.
    
    Reith: ???
    
    
    - I don’t know...
    Eonis:   Why? Isn’t Calintz special to you?
    *** Eonis’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Reith:   That’s not the reason. At first, I thought that
             things would be the same even after I got my
             memory back. But not, I’m getting more and more worried.
             I feel like once I regain my memory, I’ll 
             become someone else...
    
    Justina: She’s right. There may come a time when we
             must part. We should all be ready for that.
    *** Justina’s trust in you has increased. ***  
    
    Eonis:   I see... But, that’s not what’s important. 
             As long as you still care for him...
             Just make sure he understands.
    
    Reith:   Alright... But, let’s worry about saving him
             right now!
    
    Eonis:   Okay!
    
    
    
    ************************************************

           but if you have to, will you?
    ************************************************
    
    - If it’s for Calintz’s sake.
    Haren: Really? You’re the one who said not to fight them.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith: I may be contradicting myself, but I won’t kill
           any of them. That’s where I draw the line.
    
    Haren: Is that how it is?
    
    
    - I don’t know...
    Haren:  And you say you’re gonna save Calintz?
            Great, I don’t believe this.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith:  I never wanted to harm the Yason, so I just 
            avoided it... because I was scared. But this time,
            I won’t run away. I’ll fight.
    
    Rianna: You don’t have to do if you don’t want to.
            Just leave it to us.

    **************************************************
    
    - Uh, well...
    Chris: Hoho, Looks like I’m right on the money.
           No need to be embarrassed. I think it’s great.
    
    Reith: Huh? Um...
    
    Chris: Even though Calintz has wonderful allies 
           like us, he’s still alone. His heart has always
           been in Fuget.
    
    Reith: that’s so sad...
    
    Chris: Yeah. He may act tough, but he really needs
           someone to support him.
    *** No change ***  
    
    
    - I want to be by his side.
    Chris: Whoa, you’re blunt.
           As they say, honesty’s the best policy!
    *** Chris’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Reith: Calintz has become so strong... He used to be
           such a crybaby.
    
    Chris: Huh?
    
    Reith: Oh... nothing.
    
    Chris: I have a favor to ask... Will you stick with him?
    
    Reith: I promise.
    
    Haren: Hey, shouldn’t you be worrying about your own problem?
    
    Chris: I could say the same thing to you. How long
           will you dwell on the past?

           Maya’s worried about you. She doesn’t
            want you to be afraid.
    
    Reith: Oh, really? I’m sorry.
    
    Maya:  ..........

           Then, she’s worried about Calintz?
           Or could it be...

    *** Eonis’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***

             I don’t think it’s wise to move.

    - I do want to save her.
    Haren:   So, what are we waiting for?
    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***

             But right now, we don’t know a whole lot.
    
    Haren:   Don’t worry. If anything’s happened to her,
             they’ll pay for it.

             I’m sure of it.
    
    Chris:   What makes you so sure?
    
    Calintz: They’ve been trying to capture her alive all this
             time. That means she has something they want.
             I don’t know what’ll happen to her after they get
             what they want, though.

           back down.

    Haren:   That’s the spirit.
    
    Calintz: The fall of Fuget... Mistress Ladrinne’s mental 
             breakdown... They’re both his fault. He’s been
             manipulating us all along. 
             We’ll make him pay for his sins.
    
    Haren:   Yeah. I can’t wait to get my hands on him.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    
    - This has got to stop.
    Haren:   Whaddya talin’ about? Don’t you want revenge?
    *** Haren’s trust in you has decreased. ***  
    
    Calintz: Yeah, I want revenge. But, that’s all
             the Dark Yason ever wanted. Where will it end?
    
    Haren:   ..........
    
    Calintz: It’s just keeps going back and forth...
    
    Haren:   So, what are you saying? That we shouldn’t go?
    
    
    
    ********************************************************
    Chris: Hey, Calintz... Are you alright? You had me
           worried there, for a minute. You were staring off
           into space...
    ********************************************************
    
    - ...Who are you?
    Chris:   Wha!? Wait a minute... You’re joking, right?
    
    Calintz: .......... Gotcha.
    
    Chris:   Hey! That’s not cool.
    *** Chris’s trust in you has decreased greatly. ***  
    
    Haren:   He, that was a good one.
    *** Haren’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Chris:   Of course YOU would think it’s funny...
    
    Calintz: Don’t worry. I’m fine.
    
    Chris:   Hmph. No one’s worried about you.
    
    Haren:   Stop pouting.
    
    Chris:   I’m not pouting!
    
    
    - I'm fine.
    Chris:   That’s a relief.
    *** Chris’s trust in you has increased greatly. ***  
    
    Calintz: Sorry if I scared you.
    
    Chris:   I thought you’d finally cracked.
    
    Azel:    I knew he’d snap out of it.
    
    Chris:   ...And who was the saddest of them all, huh, 
             Maya?

    |for very long, so perhaps that’s why she wasn’t                              |

    |     5.2. Mano’s bracelet                                          [5.02]    |
    |                                                                             |

    Mano’s bracelet is shown throughout many of the cut scenes, but there are a 
    few details that are not said, unless you read the right book... and after 
    that you speak to the right person.
    
    In Pnosen Library, on the ground floor on the left side the 5th book ( from 
    the door) is written about the Grandier Jewelry Shop in Remie. After reading
    it, Calintz comments that maybe they should stop there later.
    
    If later, much, much later, you go to the Jewelry shop you’ll get the following
    conversation.
    Jeweler: Welcome to the Grandier Jewelry Shops.
             What kind of jewelry are you looking for?
    
    Calintz: There’s something I’d like to ask.
             I had a bracelet with your crest inscribed on it...
    
    Jeweler: Was there a problem?
             If it broke we will gladly fix it.
    
    Calintz: No, that bracelet is the only clue I have to the
             identity of my parents. I don’t know where I 
             was born or even what my real name is.
             But, I gave it to my best friend, so I don’t have
             it with me...
    
    Jeweler: Oh, I see. Can you describe the bracelet?
             Everything I do here is custom made...
             So, if you know the characteristics, we should be
             able to deduce who the original customer was,
             as well as the date it was made.
    
    
    Jeweler: Oh, there is no need to look at the records for this.
             This is the one my father made. It was special, 
             so I remember it.
    
    Calintz: Really?
    
    Jeweler: General Sheed Estar from Maracatte ordered
             this bracelet to send to his love. The General
             was my father’s best friend.
             That’s way he took special care in creating it.
    
    Calintz: General Sheed Estar...?
    
    Jeweler: Yes. You must be his son, if you have this
             Bracelet. Although I heard he cast aside the
             name Estar to marry his love from Garute.
             An honorable family in Maracatte would not
             allow marriages with people from other countries.
    
    Calintz: And, the Estar family...?
    
    Jeweler: Sadly... most of the noble families were destroyed
             by the Yason, including the Estar.
    
    Calintz: ...I see.
    
    Jeweler: But what a coincidence... The last time I saw
             the General... was when he came to pick the
             bracelet up. I haven’t seen him since.
    
    Calintz: What happened to his lover?
    
    Jeweler: I was young, so I don’t remember that much.
             I’m sorry I can’t be of more help.
    
    Calintz: Thank you for all of your help.

    |     5.3. Pnosen Library locked door                               [5.03]    |
    |                                                                             |
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    At the first floor of the Pnosen Library, there is a locked door, which can not
    be opened without the proper key.
    This key, which is a pendant, can only be acquired after Rostin checks in, that
    he has finished Rusty 29, which is at the end of the game.
    
    To get the pendant, the party has to enter the Entress Desert from Remie, where
    there will be a shining object in the sand.
    Chris: Hmm... What is this?
           It’s a pendant. Looks mighty expensive...
    
    Maya:  ..........
    
    Chris: Oh no, no... Maya, don’t gimme that look. 
           You know I hate it when you give me that look... 
           Look, I’ll just leave it where I found it.
           But it is pure silver. Wouldn’t it be better
           if we sold it?
    
    Haren: What... are you doing?
    
    Chris: Wha? There’s something written on it...
           Sir Richard Algernon Lloyd Kuranoff...
           Dude, this is one long ass name...
           And... Sebastian Arnold Pnosen.
    
    Azel:  Pnosen? As in “the” Pnosen?
    
    Chris: Most likely... 
           He probably didn’t survive in the desert.
           How sad.
    
    Azel:  We should take that back to Amon.
    
    Chris: Yeah, I guess we could do that...
           But, it’s such a waste...
           Awww... Come on Maya, not the look!
           You know that ain’t fair...
    
    Haren: ...Yeah, whatever.
    
    |                            Pnosen Pendant acquired!                         |
    
    
    At Pnosen Library...
    Amon:    This i-is Lord Pnosen’s...!
    
    Azel:    So, we were right.
    
    Amon:    Where did you find this? In the desert?
             ...W-Was there anything else?
    
    Eonis:   ...There were... human remains beside it...
    
    Amon:    I see... After Lord Pnosen lost his wife, he
             became depressed...
             He had built this library in the middle of 
             nowhere so that she could be surrounded
             by the books she loved.
             But, I guess he couldn’t stand living there
             without her. It seemed like all the happiness
             had been drained out of him.
             So, he decided to embark on a journey...
             I could only watch as he left...
    
    
    Eonis:   I see... Wait!? Didn’t that happen around
             300 years ago? How could you possibly...?
    
    Amon:    I have waited for his return for many years,
             but now, even the slightest hope has vanished. 
             This is all that’s left him... 
             It was a gift from his wife. Why did he have
             to go and die in the middle of the desert, 
             leaving an old man like me behind...?
    
    Everyone: ..........
    
    Amon:    Will you take this pendant?
    
    Calintz: I can’t accept such a valuable possession...
    
    Amon:    It’s alright. Lord Pnosen has passed away, 
             and the Pnosen Family is gone now.
             That pendant isn’t worth anything.
             Maybe it was fate that led you to it.
    
    Chris:   Seriously? ...Wow, thanks. We’ll take it!
    
    Chris is grinning at Amon, but he quickly finishes it, when he notices, that 
    everyone is looking at him, rather furiously...
    
    Amon:    Thank you.
    
    He is turning transparent and while he’s floating upwards, he slowly 
    disappears...
    
    Eonis:   Incredible... He watched over the 
             library long after Pnosen left.
    
    Azel:    Now, that’s what I call devotion.
    
    
    This new section of the library has only 2 rooms – in the first room there is
    only one book, the second room had 3 books.

    |wrought with evil intentions begets greater evil                             |
    |which, eventually, leads to complete and                                     |
    |utter destruction.’ Such is the case with war                                |

    |“Hatred let to violence, violence to war, and                                |
    |war led to mass numbers of casualties. Emon was                              |
    |established as an escape from the destruction and                            |
    |became a gathering place for outcasts from                                   |
    |both sides.”                                                                 |

    |“ In the beginning, they were like wandering                                 |
    |nomads searching the continent for a safe haven                              |
    |far away from the war and prejudice. But, these were                         |
    |harsh times, and such a place could not be found.                            |
    |Weary and destitute, the wanderers finally settled                           |
    |in Emon.”                                                                    |

    |“At first glance, Emon appeared to be a strange                              |
    |choice as it was situated in the heart of the war                            |
    |along the orders of both territories. It is precisely                        |
    |due to this location, however, that Emon was                                 |
    |chosen. Its strategic position prohibited an attack                          |
    |from either the human or the Yason.”                                         |

    |“An assault upon Emon would have left either                                 |
    |side highly vulnerable to a counter attack from                              |
    |their enemy. This was a risk neither side was                                |
    |willing to take.”                                                            |

    |by war, finally found their peace.”                                          |

    |time when Yason and humans lived together                                    |
