Three days later... Anelace Whew... So this is Leiston Fortress. Anelace It definitely looks the part, at least. It's huge. Private Samuel Hmm? Can I help you? Anelace Umm... Well, I'd like to meet with Brigadier General Bright, if that's possible... Anelace He wouldn't happen to be free now, would he? Private Samuel Unfortunately not. He's a very busy man, as you can imagine. Private Samuel Don't expect to be able to meet with him any time soon without getting touch in advance to arrange an appointment. Anelace What, really? Aww... Anelace I took time off to come all the way here, too... Private Samuel That's unfortunate, but there really is nothing I can do here. Private Samuel Still, while I can't imagine it doing any good, I suppose I can at least pass on that you're here and what you came for. Private Samuel So, do you mind if I ask what business you have with the general? Anelace O-Oh, thank you... Anelace Well, you see... Anelace Whew... Anelace I really don't want to have to go back empty handed after coming all the way here... Anelace ...I suppose if I can't meet with Cassius, I could at least go shopping in the department store over in Grancel. Anelace ...Yeah! Let's go with that! Anelace Nothing cures a depressive slump like some shopping. Private Samuel Hey, young lady. Private Samuel It looks like he can meet you after all. Anelace Really? Private Samuel Good day, sir! Royal Army Officer Very good. Royal Army Officer You're Anelace, I take it? Anelace Y-Yes, I am... Royal Army Officer Wow... It's hard to believe you're the granddaughter of a legendary swordsman... Royal Army Officer ...but I suppose this isn't the time to be talking about this. Royal Army Officer The general's waiting for you. Follow me. Anelace What, I can really meet him? Royal Army Officer Yes. He kindly agreed to take time out of his schedule specially to meet you. Royal Army Officer So let's hurry along. We don't want to keep him waiting. Anelace R-Right!
Renne Oh, I wasn't expecting you to come, Loewe. Renne Did the professor call you? Loewe He certainly did. It's my turn, apparently. Loewe I hear you performed your part over at the tower quite well, too. Renne *sigh* I wish I could say that. Renne If I'd just had a liiiittle longer, I could've slaughtered every last one of them, too. Loewe You didn't need to do that in the first place. Loewe With the Aureole's power in the professor's hands, humanity is as good as extinct regardless. Renne Huh, you think? Loewe It doesn't take much pondering. Loewe We're talking about him gaining power beyond human comprehension here. What will happen if he does that is as clear as day. Renne *giggle* I suppose you're right. Renne He's always been quite the mischief-maker, after all. Loewe Now it's just a case of seeing whether they get to it first, or we do... Loewe Whatever the outcome ends up being, though, it'll be decided soon enough. Renne The professor with the world in his hands... Renne Heehee. Things are really going to get interesting soon. Walter Man, you SEEN that huge thing up in the sky? Walter Heh heh. Now things're REALLY gettin' interesting. Loewe If you say so. Loewe As far as I'm concerned, it's nothing at all to do with me. Walter Hmph. Man, you really could stand to have a bit more fun with life. Walter Bah. If I'd known this was going to happen, I would've got that damn kid when I last had the chance. Loewe He showed up at the tower you were at too, then? Walter He wasn't half bad, but it's not hard to see his strength's fighting from the shadows and not the open. Walter I'll get him next time, no doubting that. Loewe I certainly hope so... Loewe Still, don't underestimate him. He's a master at what he does. Loewe Let your guard down, and you won't even know what hit you. Walter Bah. What kind of a half-wit do you take me for? I know that much. Walter Just you wait. I'll be back with his head soon enough. Walter Heh heh. Somethin' to look forward to, huh? Luciola *giggle* Oh my, this is quite the surprise. Luciola What brings you here? Feeling lonely and in need of company? Loewe That's enough of that. Loewe I think you know well enough that I'm not here to hear that kind of nonsense. Luciola Heehee. I was only playing around. Luciola Still, now the Gospel Plan is finally in its finishing stages... Luciola I suppose it's almost your time to shine? Loewe Most likely so. Loewe ...Still, if you don't mind me asking... Loewe Just what drove you to stick around and help the professor for so long to begin with? Luciola Heehee. It was just how fate deigned it to be. Luciola I've been looking for something for a long time, and I finally found it. That's all there is to it, really. Luciola In that sense, I don't think my reasoning is all that different to any of the others gathered here. Loewe ...I suppose you're right. Loewe Well, I hope you manage to get whatever it is you've finally found. Luciola I'm not sure I'd put much faith in that. Luciola If anything, I fear I may already be too late... Loewe ... Loewe ...Regardless, we've come this far. I intend to keep fighting to the bitter end so I can come away from all this without any regrets. Loewe The path I walk has been a bloodstained one from the start. There's nothing to be gained by turning back now. Luciola I'm only really here helping the professor because of a quirk of fate, if you will. Luciola In that sense, I don't think my reasoning is all that different to any of the others gathered here. Bleublanc Oh my, to what do I owe this honor? Bleublanc I wasn't expecting the famed Bladelord himself to pay a visit to my humble abode. Loewe Heh. I'm impressed that you keep that mask of yours on even during your off-time like this. Loewe Do you really hate exposing your true self that much? Bleublanc Heh. What a peculiar question. Bleublanc Especially given that you wear a mask yourself. Loewe ...What? Bleublanc Human beings all assume a number of masks throughout their lives. Bleublanc I imagine that deep down, you know what I mean, do you not? Loewe ... Bleublanc I, on the other hand, possess but this one mask. Bleublanc It is my true, and only face; and my true face is therefore perfectly visible when I wear it. Bleublanc So I don't believe one such as yourself, who uses many, has any right to criticize me. Loewe Heh. When you put it like that, I suppose I don't. Loewe Perhaps there's a method in your madness after all. Bleublanc Without thought, there is no beauty. Bleublanc Simple enough, no? Bleublanc Human beings all assume a number of masks throughout their lives. Bleublanc Perhaps you should work on reducing your own collection before attempting to jest at the expense of mine. Gilbert L-Lord Loewe?! Loewe Patrolling well, I see. Loewe ...Nothing is amiss, I take it? Gilbert N-Nothing whatsoever, sir! Gilbert I-I intend to continue giving my absolutely fullest to whatever task is assigned to me, sir! Gilbert I may be leaving here soon to begin a new mission, but the same will be true for that, too! Loewe Oh? And what mission would that be? Gilbert Assaulting Jenis Royal Academy, sir! Loewe ...What? Loewe ...On whose orders? Gilbert L-Lord Campanella's, sir! Loewe ... Loewe What does he think he's doing...? Gilbert I-Is something the matter, sir? Loewe ...No. Good luck with your mission. Loewe Just be sure not to cause any more casualties than necessary. Loewe ...Given all the work that remains, I would rather retain as many of our resources as possible, after all. Gilbert Of course, sir! Thank you, sir! Gilbert I will be sure to astound even you with my spectacular leadership abilities! Gilbert I will be sure to lead the academy's assault to great success! Gilbert I hope you will look forward to seeing what a great leader I can be! Enhanced Jaeger ◆Talk to Reinforced Jaeger (Repeat) Enhanced Jaeger ◆Talk to Reinforced Jaeger (Repeat) Enhanced Jaeger ◆Talk to Reinforced Jaeger (Repeat) Boy's Voice Loewe? Boy's Voice Hey, Loewe! Loewe Hmm? What is it? Joshua Can I start eating now? Joshua I'm starving... Karin Heehee. Oh, no, we can't have that, Joshua. Karin We all promised to eat together, didn't we? Joshua B-But... Loewe Haha. Sorry, I didn't realize you were that hungry. Loewe Just let me do ten more, then we can have lunch. Joshua Okay! Joshua ...Hey, Loewe? Joshua Is it true you're going to be taking the bracer examination soon? Loewe Hold on, who did you hear that from? Joshua The grown-ups were all talking about how you're gonna be going into town for it. Is it true? Loewe ...Yeah, it is. Loewe I haven't decided exactly when, but it won't be in the too distant future. Joshua Oh... Joshua ...If you pass, are you gonna be moving there for good? Loewe Why do you ask? Loewe Think you'll be lonely without me? Joshua ...Y-Yeah, I guess. Joshua ...Hey, if you really need to go there, can't we all live there together? Loewe What?! Joshua That way I'd be able to learn to fight with a sword, too... Joshua And you'd be able to be able to be with Karin, too. Loewe Haha... You just had to throw that in, didn't you? Loewe Do you have any idea how much mira we'd need for the three of us to live there? Joshua Aww... I thought it was a good idea, too. Joshua But I guess I'm just being silly. Loewe No, I don't think so. Loewe It's not feasible right now...but I'd certainly like it to happen one day in the future. Joshua Me too! Old Man's Voice Loewe! Old Man's Voice LOEWE! Loewe ...What is it? Loewe What are you shouting for? Old Man's Voice R-Run! Now! Loewe What?! Why?! Joshua Wh-Where are you going?! Karin It doesn't matter! Just follow me! Hurry! Loewe Joshua, Karin! Go on ahead! Loewe Get yourselves to the next village! Hurry! Karin What about you?! Loewe I'm going to go and try to hold them off! Loewe I'll come after you as soon as I can. You know how fast I can run. Karin Well, if you're sure... Karin But be careful! Please! Loewe Just go! Karin Y-You really did come... Karin I knew you'd come for us... I knew you would... Loewe Don't try and talk! Karin Thank you... But it's too late for me now... Karin ...Thank you...for everything, Loewe... Loewe Stay with us, Karin! Karin Please... Karin Take care of...Joshua... Loewe I will! Loewe So you... Karin ...Thank...you... Karin ... Loewe K-Karin?! Loewe Karin! Karin! Loewe ?! Loewe ...Ugh... Loewe That dream again... Enhanced Jaeger L-Lord Loewe? Loewe What is it? Enhanced Jaeger The professor awaits you in the cathedral, sir. Enhanced Jaeger He says he would like to speak with you regarding the upcoming mission. Loewe All right. I'll go as soon as I can. Enhanced Jaeger If you will excuse me, then, sir. Loewe *sigh*... Loewe I guess I don't have the luxury of dwelling on the past right now. Loewe ...I've got no reason to go any further this way. Loewe I should head to the cathedral.

Campanella Heehee. What a lovely sound. Campanella The sound of everything crumbling to the ground... Campanella Still, at least now the professor has the rubble of an ancient city to serve as his pillow in his eternal slumber. Campanella I'm sure he must be very happy about that. Campanella Haha. Don't you worry, Professor. You just leave everything to me now... Campanella And with that... Campanella ...you won't ever need to crawl your way out of Gehenna and return to this world ever again. ◆Campanella clicks his fingers Campanella Enforcer No. 0, Campanella the Fool... Campanella Entering the Celestial Globe in place of the Third Anguis, Georg Weissmann! Campanella Hey, Loewe. Weissmann Did you get plenty of rest? Loewe Yeah... Loewe So, what's the situation? Weissmann Heheh... Things are going even better than we expected. Weissmann The kingdom is in a complete state of panic because of the Aureole. Campanella To make matters worse for them, we sent down quite a lot of archaisms, too. Campanella All in all, the Royal Army won't be able to act in an organized fashion to deal with things any time soon. Campanella That goes for that irritating Cassius Bright, too. Loewe So all in all, everything is going well. Loewe ...What about Joshua? Weissmann The ship he was on has landed in Valleria Lake. Weissmann I don't doubt he'll begin to act again at some point, but for now, I don't think there's any need to factor him into our calculations. Campanella Haha. By the time he's ready to act again, it'll be too late for him to do anything, anyway. Campanella After all, now even the famous Blood and Iron Chancellor seems to have taken an interest in what's happening. Loewe Heh. You say that as if you had nothing to do with it. Loewe It's only because of you that he even knows about the plan. Campanella Ahaha. Well, you know. Weissmann Still, the more actors on the stage, the livelier it is. Weissmann ...Incidentally, Loewe... Weissmann We do have one small problem that needs to be dealt with. Loewe Do we, now? Campanella It's the floating city's defensive system, you see. Campanella Amazingly enough, it's still operational. Campanella We're going to need to disable it before we can land, too. Weissmann A giant ship like the Glorious is just going to be a huge, slow target for all of its firepower if we try getting any closer. Weissmann Still, if you use the Reverie Dragion that was developed for you, you should be able to get close to it and attack. Loewe I see... Loewe So that's why you called me, is it? Campanella Do you think you can handle it? Loewe I have the sword granted to me by the Grandmaster, that can cut anything in this world... Loewe Of course I can. Campanella Haha. So you do. Campanella That was made with the Divergent Laws, too, wasn't it? Weissmann The Dragion is standing by for you on the deck. Weissmann Go forth, and use it to open the door that leads to a legend!

◆Debug flag judgment (Walter part) Regarding Walter battle in the Axis Pillar in SC ◆Debug flag judgment (Luciola part) Regarding Luciola battle in the Axis Pillar in SC Immediately after the collapse of the Aureole... Aboard a great ship cutting through the clouds... Bleublanc Oh, my... What a beautiful sight! Bleublanc The mystical land that we sought is crumbling before our eyes! Walter Heh heh... Suppose I could've seen this coming. Walter Guess that means we lost this battle. Walter Bah. It was a battle we could've won, too. Walter This is what all the professor's fault for getting so out of hand. Luciola All returns to nothing... Luciola And once that flying city vanishes, our duty is over as well. Luciola ...It'll be time to say farewell again for a while. Bleublanc All returns to nothing... Bleublanc And once that flying city vanishes, our duty is over as well. Bleublanc ...It'll be time to say farewell again for a while. Walter ... Walter Hmph. There's no guarantee we'll ever meet again at all. Walter ... Walter Hmph. There's no guarantee we'll ever meet again at all. Luciola Oh? Luciola Are you considering leaving the society? Bleublanc Oh, my... What a peculiar thing to say. Bleublanc Are you considering leaving the society, perchance? Walter Who knows? Even I don't know what the future holds for me. Walter Still, we Enforcers are the ones who decide our own destinies. Walter Which means what I do in the future is for me to decide and no one else. Walter Who knows? Even I don't know what the future holds for me. Walter Still, we Enforcers are the ones who decide our own destinies. Walter Which means what I do in the future is for me to decide and no one else. Bleublanc Hmm... Quite so. Bleublanc Still, I believe it is only polite in these circumstances to promise to meet again. Bleublanc To promise that one day, we will run into one another on yet another battlefield somewhere. Luciola Heehee. I suppose you're right. Walter Hmph... Walter Like there's any point in the 'battlefield' part. Walter As if the lot of us would ever meet anywhere else. Walter I suppose you're right. Walter Still, it's not like our work will only be taking place here. Bleublanc Heh. Indeed. Bleublanc Well, then, as is custom, let us promise to meet again. Bleublanc Until then, we must part ways. Luciola Indeed. Let us meet again. Luciola Wherever and however destiny would have us meet. Walter Yeah. Walter See ya all on another bloody battlefield one day, guys. Loewe Go forth, jet-black wings! Loewe Let the fools of the world know the truth!
We have been waiting for you... You have done well... So that is the Aureole... So you were able to recover it after all... Still, many sacrifices had to be made to obtain it... We should not forget that... Everyone, be silent. The Grandmaster is about to make an appearance. Campanella I, Enforcer No. 0... Campanella ...have returned. Raise your head. Well, Campanella... ...did the world move as I expected it would? Campanella Well, yes and no. Campanella As you foretold, the activation of the Aureole was a success... Campanella ...but due to unforeseen circumstances that occurred, the Third Anguis and Enforcer No. II both journeyed to the Outside. Campanella And as of now, No. VI and No. XV's current locations are unknown. Campanella Well, yes and no. Campanella As you foretold, the activation of the Aureole was a success... Campanella ...but due to unforeseen circumstances that occurred, the Third Anguis and Enforcer No. II both journeyed to the Outside. Campanella And as of now, No. VI and No. XV's current locations are unknown. How pitiful... As I expected, they were unable to overcome their trials. Campanella Please, do not place the burden of blame upon yourself. Campanella The victory we obtained was more than worth the price we paid. Campanella Please accept this. Once the Aureole returns to you, the Gospel Plan will be complete, after all. The Aureole...has finally returned to me. The bells in the West have rung, and the first of the Sept-Terrions has fulfilled its role. So I hereby proclaim the end of the Gospel Plan... ...and the commencement of the next plan, Orpheus.
Location: West Bose Highway
In one corner of a vast city stood a sturdily-built mansion. Its walls, decorated by marble, shone faintly in the deep darkness, bathed in the cold moonlight. It was a gathering spot for residents of the criminal underworld, run by an equally unpleasant organization. The white prison was filled with exceptionally young children... All unfortunate enough to have been given as offerings to the insatiable lust of those who patronized the building. Owing to the physical and mental strains of being there, most of the children began to grow weaker and weaker over time... But one girl, by nothing short of a miracle, was somehow able to maintain her own sanity, and endured all that was forced upon her. She was only five years old at the time, and one of the many unfortunate souls who ended up there, presumably abandoned by her parents. One day, as dark fell, the building's gates were opened once more... And the carriage of a government official came to a halt in front of the building. Owner It's a pleasure to see you again, sir. Government Official Guide me inside at once. Government Official I'm in an excellent mood tonight, I'll have you know. Government Official I expect to be treated accordingly. Owner As you wish, sir. Owner Now, Renne... Owner Come and say hello to your favorite gentleman. Renne ... Owner My... How wonderful. Owner Come along, Renne. Owner Let me get a good look at that sweet little face of yours. Renne ... Government Official Haha... There's no need to be so afraid. Government Official All you need to do is relax and let whatever happens...happen. Government Official That way, when you next open your eyes... Government Official It'll aaall be over. Renne Eeeek! Man's Scream Aaaah! Man's Scream Aaaaah! Owner Wh-What's happening?! Government Official What's going on?! Government Official A-Aaaah! Loewe ...Filthy pigs. Loewe Their screams are as unpleasant as their looks. Joshua ...I've finished with the first floor now. Joshua Everyone left has fled to the second floor. Loewe Like cornered rats. Loewe Lead the way, Joshua. Joshua Got it. Joshua The assault of the building was carried out by a mere two members of the society. Joshua Between them, they executed every last member of the organization that ran it. Joshua The attack was meant to serve as an example to the rest of the underworld there... Joshua But as an unintended consequence, that young girl was allowed to escape with her life, albeit only barely. Joshua After being taken in by the group, she proved to be remarkably skilled... Joshua ...and before long, she had risen to being a candidate for an executive position, and began receiving formal training. Joshua Having saved her from the hell she was in, Joshua and Loewe were like brothers to her. Joshua Not long after joining the Society, Renne heard that Joshua had left on a special mission. Joshua One that he was going to take quite some time. Joshua Feeling somewhat lonely at the news, she decided to step out into town for the first time in quite a while. Joshua And after doing so, something caught her eye. Joshua A familiar man and woman, a baby in the woman's arms. Renne ... Renne ... Loewe ...Well, what will you do? Renne I... Loewe I can't help but wonder whether they are even worth the effort of cutting down... Loewe But that is your choice to make, not mine. Renne ...No. I'll leave them. Renne They're not my real Papa and Mama. Renne I have Pater-Mater now. Renne ...Oh... Renne Right... Renne I thought it was cold... I guess that's because of the rain. Renne Heehee. Thanks, Pater-Mater. Renne Well, let's go, shall we?
Estelle Good morning, Mr. Elger! Estelle ...Huh? Joshua It looks like he must be out somewhere... Estelle Y-Yeah... Estelle It's not like him to leave the shop empty like this, though... Cassius Indeed. Perhaps some sudden business came up that meant he had to pop out for a while. Joshua That sounds like the most likely possibility. Joshua Let's go and see Elissa first, then. Estelle Yeah! Okay.
Estelle Huh? Joshua There's no one here, either... Estelle Th-That's kind of weird, though. Estelle I mean, normally there'd be at least one customer here at this time of day... Estelle O-Oh, I know. Maybe someone's up on the second floor. Estelle Oh... Joshua There's no one here, either... Cassius Hmm... Estelle I-I'm not the only one who thinks this is kinda weird, right? Estelle You don't think something serious could have happened, do you? Joshua Don't jump to conclusions, Estelle. Joshua It's too early to be making assumptions like that. Let's at least head over to the guild first. Joshua If something serious really is going on, they likely already know about it. Estelle Y-Yeah. Good point. Estelle Let's head over there, then.
Olivier My... Rolent's cuisine really is exceptional. Olivier It makes perfect use of seasonal ingredients, too. Olivier If this were Erebonia, you'd be paying a premium at a three star restaurant for food like this. Scherazard Wow. Sounds like you're quite the fan. Olivier Heh. But of course. Olivier I couldn't ask for a more heavenly situation than the one I find myself in right now. Olivier Sampling fine food and fine drink while accompanied by the finest women... What man wouldn't want to swap with me? Aina Haha... Aina I see the rumors about you were all true. Scherazard You'll want to watch yourself around this one, Aina. Scherazard He really will go after anything that moves. Scherazard Oh, Faulkner! Scherazard We're short on wine over here. Bring us another two or three bottles! Aina Oh, and throw in some Cognac, too. Preferably Erebonian. Faulkner R-Right! Olivier W-Wait a second... Olivier Can't we ease ourselves in a bit before going for the hard stuff? Scherazard I think we've been taking this a bit TOO easy, if you ask me. Scherazard We've been talking for ages! Time to get drinking. Aina Well, I don't mind going with a slower pace for a while. Aina Still... Aina Your glass is completely empty, Olivier. That just won't do. Olivier Ha...haha... Th-Thank you... Faulkner H-Here you go, here's your drinks. Aina Thanks. Aina Want your Cognac on the rocks, Olivier? Olivier ...What? Aina It wouldn't be fair of us to be forcing you to drink nothing but wine, after all. Aina You're Erebonian, after all. I'm guessing you'd prefer something a lot stronger. Scherazard Well, that makes sense. Scherazard No wonder you drink slowly if you're used to stronger drinks. Olivier *cough* *cough* Olivier I-Incidentally, Schera... Olivier Do you go back quite some time with this Aina lady? Scherazard You could say that, yeah. Scherazard I've known her since back when I was a junior bracer. Olivier Oh my... That must be quite some time, then. Olivier Might I ask how you came to meet? Aina It was six years ago, in Grancel. Aina I went to the guild to ask for an escort, and that was when I first ran into her. Scherazard I just happened to be in the guild at the time, you see. Scherazard I ended up accepting her request, but it really didn't seem like something worth my time at first. Olivier Still, I can only assume it turned out to be? Had she gotten herself caught up in some kind of trouble? Aina I had. My rich grandfather had died of illness, you see -- and that was the start of it all. Aina Because he had left his entire fortune to me. Scherazard After that, I'm sure you can imagine how it all went. Scherazard One relative after another wanted the mira she had inherited... Scherazard There were even some who tried to invalidate her right of succession to get it all for themselves. Olivier Oh dear. They sound like really despicable fellows. Aina In the end, I found myself a few days before my right of succession was due to expire, with no one to turn to... Aina ...and that was why I ended up having to rely on this scary lady here for help. Scherazard Oh, that's real nice. Aina You can't deny you were scary, though. Aina I mean, it was pretty clear you hated me at first. You didn't exactly hide it. Olivier Oh? Olivier So you weren't quite this friendly at first, then? Scherazard Well, I was pretty young at the time. I still had a lot to learn about the world. Scherazard ...Although I can't deny I started disliking her the second I found out she was from a rich family. Olivier Th-That's quite some prejudice from you... Scherazard Oh, quiet. Scherazard Less talking, more drinking, Mr. 'My Glass is Empty Yet Again.' Olivier O-Oh, is it? Oh dear... Olivier Worry not, though. I would much rather focus myself on your story regardless. Aina What's a good story without a drink to go with it? You can have both! *Pouring* Olivier A-Aina?! Aina So... Umm... Where were we? Olivier *Hic* Y-You were telling me about how Schera ended up taking your request. Aina Oh, right. Aina Anyway, even with Scherazard's help, we ended up getting chased around the capital by pursuers... Scherazard It was exhausting, to be honest. Scherazard But our little rich girl here didn't have a single complaint to make. Scherazard I think that was about when we finally started opening up to one another a bit. Aina Well, after being together for that long, it was basically inevitable we'd grow more familiar with one another before long. Aina More than anything else, though, you were really fascinating to me. Aina You were like no one I'd met before with my sheltered upbringing, after all. Aina So while we might not have gotten along very well at first, we did end up hitting it off. We even went out for drinks after all was said and done. Scherazard It was then that we REALLY started hitting it off, though. Scherazard After all, all my prejudices towards you were well and truly shattered when I saw how she drank. Scherazard That was...not a sight I was ever expecting to see from a rich girl. Not at all. Olivier *Hic* St-Still... *Hic* If you were drinking six years ago... Olivier Were you even legally allowed to? Scherazard *sigh* Quiet, drunkard. Scherazard The most surprising part of all of this is still yet to come. Scherazard That's what she did with all the money after finally inheriting it -- she donated the lot! Olivier R-Really...? Aina Yep. I gave it all to Her Majesty's welfare foundation. Scherazard Then after all that was done, she just looked like the weight of the world had been lifted from her shoulders and started talking about finding a job. Scherazard After seeing that, I couldn't bring myself to turn my back on her. Aina So that was when she introduced me to the guild and I was able to find work there. Aina You really were far too good to me. Scherazard If that's what you think, perhaps you could act a little more gratefully towards me. Aina I'm paying you back through my work! Isn't that enough? Aina By joining you for drinks, too. Aina I mean, the only people who don't refuse a request to drink with you are Cassius and I. Scherazard Heehee. Not any more! ❤ Scherazard Now we can add our dear friend Olivier to that list. Scherazard Can't we, Olivier? ❤ Olivier ... Scherazard O-Olivier? Aina Oh dear... Aina Looks like our dear friend Olivier isn't with us any more. Scherazard But we were only just getting started! Scherazard The night is only just beginning! Scherazard Stop pretending to be asleep and get back to drinking, Olivier! Scherazard I know you're not really asleep! Olivier Wh-Wh-What's going on...? Aina Umm... Scherazard... It might not be my place to say this... Aina But I think you should probably take better care of willing drinking partners. They're few and far between for you. Faulkner Sch-Schera?! What are you doing?! Scherazard Oh, look who it is! ❤ Scherazard You're just in time to join us for a few drinks in Olivier's place. ♪ Faulkner I-I couldn't possibly! I'm working ere! Scherazard Aww, come oooon... You wouldn't really say no, would you? Scherazard ...If you don't join us, I will strip. Faulkner What?! Aina *sigh* Here we go again... Faulkner D-Don't just sigh, Aina! Help me here! Scherazard Boy... It sure is hot in here... ❤ Faulkner E-Eeeek! Olivier Guhh... Guhh... Eventually, the night came to an end. The unfortunate traveler who had found himself involved in this potentially fatal drinking session was fortunately able to escape alive... But the scars the experience left on his psyche would perhaps never heal.

Sister Rosa Thank you very much for coming today. Sister Rosa I would like it very much if you would be able to start coming to pray like this more often, though. Mayor Maybelle *sigh* I'm afraid it looks as though I'm not going to have much choice in that matter. Mayor Maybelle If I show any signs of skipping mass lately, Lila gives me a serious lecturing. Sister Rosa Heehee. You're rather fortunate to have someone like that by your side, if you ask me. Sister Rosa The ideal partner is someone who isn't afraid to criticize your choices, rather than someone who just blindly supports them. Sister Rosa I'm so glad that she's well now, though. Mayor Maybelle As am I... Mayor Maybelle The market's back to normal, that flying city has gone... Mayor Maybelle Everything is basically back to normal here now, and what a relief that is. Sister Rosa Indeed. Let us both offer our prayers to the Goddess, that this peace might continue. Sister Rosa ...And on that note, I will be looking forward to seeing you again here soon. Mayor Maybelle Indeed. Please give my regards to Father Holstein, too. Sister Rosa I shall. Goodbye for today, then. Mayor Maybelle Right... Mayor Maybelle Next, I should make my way over to the market. Inspecting that is next in my schedule. Mayor Maybelle Wait, isn't that...? Thanks so much. I had a whole lot of fun today. Lila As did I. Get in touch again soon, okay? My little sister's been eagerly looking forward to the big day, too. Lila Of course. Lila And with that, I'm afraid I must get going. Oh, yeah. It's about time for mass to end, huh? Later! Lila Indeed. Mayor Maybelle D-Did I just witness what I think I did...? Mayor Maybelle ... Mayor Maybelle Still, I suppose it shouldn't come as much of a surprise, given her age. Mayor Maybelle While she might be kind of cold towards people, she's a wonderful girl, and an attractive one, too. Mayor Maybelle If anything, I'm surprised it's taken her this long to find someone. Mayor Maybelle I can't deny that I do feel a little lonely at the thought, but she's going to want my support. It wouldn't be right for me not to give her it. Lila Umm... Lila Might I ask exactly what you are doing? Mayor Maybelle O-Oh... It's you, Lila... Mayor Maybelle H-How long have you been there? Lila ... Lila You appear to be rather tired. Lila This is why I keep telling you that you need to stop overexerting yourself... Mayor Maybelle Oh, no, I'm not, I assure you. Mayor Maybelle Well, shall we be going to the market? Lila Well, if you say so... Several days later...
Location: Elmo Village
Two days later... Zin This place sure brings back memories. Zin The atmosphere really is relaxing. Kilika Yeah... Kilika Especially given how similar it is to our hometown. Ah, you've arrived. Ambassador Cochrane Haha. I've been waiting for the two of you. Zin H-Hey, Ambassador. Kilika Thank you for inviting us here today. Ambassador Cochrane Oh, if anything you're doing me a favor by coming. There's no need for such formalities. Ambassador Cochrane Well, let's go inside and get to talking. Ambassador Cochrane The sooner we finish the work part of this, the sooner we can get to relaxing. Zin Haha. Sounds good to me. Kilika Indeed. Ambassador Cochrane Aah... That was the best night's sleep I've had in quite some time. Ambassador Cochrane I hope the two of you enjoyed your stay, too. Zin I know I did! Kilika I'm feeling very energized indeed, thank you. Kilika Energized enough to feel ready to take on a new position in a new environment, even. Ambassador Cochrane Then... Kilika ...I'll accept your offer. Kilika Please pass that on to the prime minister. Ambassador Cochrane But of course! Ambassador Cochrane Haha. Now I'm feeling even better than I did earlier. Kilika Still, I'll need two or three months to get everything ready for my successor. Kilika As such, I won't be able to start work until then. Ambassador Cochrane That's perfectly understandable. Ambassador Cochrane Well... I look forward to meeting you again in the Republic. Kilika Likewise. Zin Hmm... Kilika ...Is something on your mind? Zin Oh, I was just thinking about what you said back there. Zin You said you'll need two or three months to get everything ready for your successor, right? Kilika Yes, I did... Kilika What of it? Zin Well, it's not like there's any urgent work for me here or in Calvard... Zin So I was thinking maybe I could stay here for the next few months while you get things sorted, then head back after that. Kilika There's no reason why you should stay around here in Liberl with me. Go on back to Calvard. Kilika There'll be work waiting for you there, too. Zin ... Zin *sigh* There's no need to be that cold with me. Kilika Haha. Well, it's the truth. Kilika We'll have more than enough chances to spend time together after I get to Calvard as it is without you going out of your way to make more now. Zin Kilika... Zin ...Haha. I suppose you're right. Zin There's no need to rush things... Kilika Zin? Kilika What are you standing there for? Zin ...Oh! Zin S-Sorry...
Location: Elmo Village (at night)
Kilika ... Kilika You're out rather fast... Have you finished in the bath already? Zin Fast? Seriously? Zin I was in there for a whole hour! Kilika Oh... Zin Man, it's not often I see you looking this deep in thought. Kilika I suppose you don't... Kilika ...I feel like I'm one step away from making a decision, but just need one last push to take it. Zin Oh, right... Zin Still... Being here like this with you really takes me back. Hard to believe it's been six whole years since Master Ryuga's passing. Zin Sounds like you went on quite the journey between then and becoming a bracer, too. Kilika I suppose you could say that. Kilika Going on a journey makes it sound like something I did deliberately, though. In reality it was a lot less cool than that. Kilika I just kind of drifted from place to place, then finally ended up being drawn to one point where I settled. Kilika Kind of like a leaf falling from a tree and ending up floating down a river. Zin I see... Zin Then don't you think it's about time you started picking yourself up... Zin ...and looking for a path of your own? Kilika Oh my... Kilika Are you trying to give me a push in the right direction? Zin Ugh... Sorry for not being able to do a better job of it. Zin S-Still... All I'm really trying to say is... Zin I think you've spent enough time here already. Zin Enough time to heal the scars of the past, at least. Kilika Yes, I suppose... Kilika I suppose you're right. Kilika ...Say, Zin.
Dialogue then continues as the final version.
Location: The Maple Leaf Inn, Elmo Village. Dialogue is repeated in T3223 (Maple Leaf Inn at night).
Zin An intelligence division in Calvard? Zin Really? Ambassador Cochrane It's going to be established quite soon, under the guidance of the president. Ambassador Cochrane It's become known as the Rocksmith Agency. Zin Hmm... Well, it's appropriate, at least. Kilika Then I presume the reason you're here... Ambassador Cochrane Likely so. Ambassador Cochrane The president would like you to join this new agency and work in, and for the good of, the Republic. Ambassador Cochrane You'll be given an important post, too. Ambassador Cochrane You've proven yourself to have spectacular information handling and analytical skills in your position at the guild... Ambassador Cochrane So I can hardly think of a more fitting place for you to put those skills to use. Zin Umm... Kilika... Kilika Don't worry. I'm listening. Ambassador Cochrane Haha. It's quite rare that you find it difficult to make quick judgments, but I suppose no one can fault you this time. Ambassador Cochrane I won't rush you. Take a night to think long and hard about it. Ambassador Cochrane I'll ask you for your answer again tomorrow. Ambassador Cochrane I'm looking forward to hearing it. Kilika ...Thank you. Kilika I'll give it some thought. Ambassador Cochrane Well, a good night to you both.
