Script translated by: Aspartate
Kate:
Here is.... Remotest....
Isabella:
I never expected to see such a splendid city... It?s about the size Destonia castle plus the Town of Destonia added together.
Donhort:
Seems to be a city built in ancient times. I feel fear in entering a city built with such technology.
Kate:
What is the city like? Let's hurry up and see!
Great Priest:
I will not allow you to enter!!
Gracia:
Aah... I feel... a strong undulation of negative force!
Great Priest:
You can feel my strong undulation of negative force. An Innovator indeed.
Gracia:
You know me? Who are you?
Great Priest:
I'm the Great Priest in charge of the main temple of Bulzome's Shrine.
Benetram:
Main temple of Bulzome's Shrine?
Great Priest:
In your words, the main temple of Bulzome's Shrine is the Evil Deity's Shrine!
Julian:
......
Great Priest:
Yes. I, who serves at Lord Bulzome's side, have come to lead you to the afterworld.
Donhort:
You alone against all of us?
Kate:
We have the ability to reach here safe and sound. You won't get rid of us easily.
Isabella:
It's... it's you who captured my brother, right? Please give him back to us!
Great Priest:
Brother? Oh, you mean Medion? So the Empire's little princess has also joined the Expedition.
Great Priest:
Since it's his lovely little sister's wish, I can give you back Medion. I am a Great Priest of Bulzome Sect after all. And I will keep my words. But does he want to go back himself?
Benetram:
Does he want to go back himself? What do you mean?
(Great priest claps his hands. Medion shows up at the top of the wall.)
Great Priest:
Julian's army wants me to give you back. What do you say?
Medion:
Cut out the nonsense. Who wants to go with them?
Great Priest:
If that's the case, what do you want to do then, Medion?
Medion:
Do I have to say that again, Great Priest? Those are enemies of Lord Bulzome. All we have to do is defeat them.
Great Priest:
Like what you heard, Benetram. It's his wish to defeat you. I feel so gratified for him. Let's begin, Julian's Army. Settle this once and for all with Medion?s Army & me.
Donhort:
What's got into Medion? Has he became Bulzome's follower?
Isabella:
Something must be wrong... My brother would never side with Bulzome.
Gracia:
We must proceed. But if Medion's Army insists on stopping us, must we battle with them?
(Yes/No option)
(Choosing yes or no makes no difference.)
Benetram:
I recall a situation similar to what Medion is in now. And now I remembered what happened back then....
Benetram:
General Spiriel, who is in Julian's Army now, was once controlled by Bulzome High Priestess Basanda...
Gracia:
What happened to her afterwards?
Benetram:
During the battle at the underground catacomb beneath Aspia, she seems to be back to herself after Synbios defeated Basanda.
Gracia:
Could it be... if we defeat the Great Priest, Medion will be back to normal?
Benetram:
It's worth a try. Julian, try your best to avoid conflict with Medion's Army and defeat that Great Priest!
(Medion's Army when defeated.)
Campbell:
The one who defeated me... is Julian's Army? How silly it is for allies of the Expedition to battle against each other!
Syntesis:
Kyaaaa~ Julian's Army? Why are you trying to defeat us Medion's Army? This is SO very rude!
Uryudo:
Huh? Why am I in a battle like this? And I'm actually defeated?
Walz:
It's like a dream... Was I dreaming all the time? But this pain is true. And this feeling is leaving me... Is this what it's like to die in a battle?
Rock:
*cough* I'm bleeding badly. It's suddenly getting cold... Not only the cold from losing blood... But also blended with coldness from somewhere else.
Bernard:
Why... I don't understand... My hands are getting cold. Perhaps I am defeated...
Hazuki:
The Great Priest must be the reason why I'm fighting with Julian's Army... we were controlled by his magic. Ninjas should be resistant to these kind of magic... Father, please forgive me for still not being mature enough.
Zero:
The reason why we were fighting with Julian's Army... must be because we were controlled by the Great Priest's magic after we fell into Bulzome Sect's trap. Diminishing one's power with his allies... What a cruel battle.
Penko:
Squeak... squeak...
David:
Battle between allies in front of Remotest... I couldn't blame you for thinking this is our fault. But it's a good thing I learned how strong Julian's Army is.
Hedoba:
Aah... Although I don't understand why, it seems I'm defeated. Dying in such a cold place... makes me want to go back to the warm Forest of the Elves.
Hera:
The enemy we were battling against is... Julian's Army, with Lord Gracia? How could this retribution-like battle happen?
Robbie:
GA... GA... I feel strong positive force... Among the enemies.
Garosh:
The Expedition that I gave up my beloved little brother's life for... ended this way...
Jade:
My brother Garosh... I'm sorry... Please forgive me for being defeated... at the place so close to accomplishing our goal of this Expedition.
Arthur:
Even though I was controlled, I was defeated in a battle. Unforgivable... My dignity won't let me forgive myself for this.
Papetts:
Papa... did you also foresee this battle in your prophecy?
(Defeat Medion)
Medion:
What... happened? What is this place? It seems that... I'm defeated in a battle...
Great Priest:
Aww - Poor thing... It's Julian's Army who defeated you.
Medion:
You are... Great Priest of Bulzome Sect... Now I remember, so you've been controlling us...
Medion:
Julian... It's Julian's Army we were battling against?
Isabella:
Poor brother... He's not conscious again until defeated.
Medion:
Isabella... my sister...
Kate:
There is no other way, prince. If we do not fight, it would be Julian's Army who gets defeated.
Great Priest:
What are you going to do now, Julian? If you continue the battle, there will be no way to save Medion.
Gracia:
Why are you saying this, Great Priest?
Great Priest:
If I take Medion back now, I can save his life.
Benetram:
In other words, you want us to retreat.
Great Priest:
Nice observation, Benetram. So, what are you going to do, Julian?
(Begin choice options)
(Yes)
Medion:
Sorry... Julian...
(No)
Gracia:
What he just said are not merely threatening words. A victory sacrificing Lord Medion is completely meaningless.
Benetram:
We can only do as he said. Let's retreat just now, Julian.
Medion:
Sorry... Julian...
(Options end, Julian retreats)
(Defeating only the Great Priest.)
Kate:
We finally defeated the Great Priest...
Donhort:
It's a pain to do that while being attacked by Medion's army.
Great Priest:
Why... I, Great Priest of Bulzome, capable of using the most powerful negative force, am still defeated? Unbelievable.
Gracia:
It's because of the positive force I'm granted in the Evolution Ceremony... The power of Innovator.
Great Priest:
You are blessed by Innovator's power, but I also have aid from Lord Bulzome... Why, Lord Bulzome, why...?
Benetram:
Isabella, are you worried about Medion?
Isabella:
Yes, I'm worried... very worried. We defeated the Great Priest already, but my brother is still...
Kate:
Why? We defeated the Great Priest already, but they just stopped, instead of moving at their own will?
Great Priest:
You think you can wake them just by defeating me? How na?ve. That's not enough to break my spell!
Gracia:
If that's the case, if I use the Innovator's power of blessing...
Great Priest:
It's useless... I must admit the power of blessing is indeed powerful, yet it's not able to break this spell. You can stop their action, but you'll never be able to break the spell. That's the limit of the positive force. The only thing that can break the spell is the negative force...
(The Great Priest dies.)
(The Great Priest exploded)
Kate:
He's gone... but still... Lord Medion and his army haven't changed a bit.
Donhort:
That means... Just like his last words, there's no way to break the spell without negative force.
Isabella:
I beg you, Julian. My brother... it's too cruel to leave him like this!
Julian nods, walks toward Medion and starts shaking him.
Benetram:
It's useless, Julian. It's a negative spell even Blessing can't break. There's no way we can help them.
Julian shakes his head, and continues to shake Medion.
Jane:
Do you really want to save him that much, Julian?
Julian:
......
Jane appears.
Kate:
I knew it... It's Jane again.
Isabella:
Jane, are you recovered from the wound you bore in dormant cave?
Jane:
I'm not fully recovered yet, but it's no big deal. Julian's heart is weeping. This deep sorrowness is calling me. This person's name is Medion, right? This is the one you really wish to rescue?
Julian:
....
Jane:
He's a friend that can't be replaced by anything else... I see. I envy you for having a friend like this. Alright, Julian. I'll save Medion and his army.
Gracia:
Jane, is it really all right for you to do so? What kind of punishment will you receive if you do this?
Jane:
You are... Gracia, right? The Innovator? Thank you for worrying about me. I'll be okay.
Benetram:
Jane, after I see your powers, and hear the others say about the things you done for Julian's Army, I'm really concerned. Even if you don't belong in the Bulzome Sect, you should be on the same side with them. Your helping us is equal to betraying them...
Jane:
Hmm... That's strange... But, I fell very happy. The environment I grew up in is where power determines everything. Now I feel deeply cared for like this...
Benetram:
Jane, are you really going to be all right?
Jane begins use her powers on Medion and others.
Kate:
Look! Lord Medion is starting to react to Jane's magic.
Isabella:
Brother Medion...
The lightening suddenly stops. Jane steps back.
Donhort:
What is it? Lord Medion...
Gracia:
How are they doing? Have they regained their consciousness?
Benetram:
What's this? Julian... Something draws near. I can feel it. Walcury appears far away, and starts to draw near.
Julian:
......
Benetram:
Walcury... Yes... I'm sure I've heard of this name somewhere.
Jane:
Don't worry, Julian. Walcury's target... is me!
Gracia:
Walcury's target is you? How could it be? But you just said...
Jane:
I... I want to contribute my power to help Julian's Army. If I tell you the truth, you wouldn't let me do this, right?
Benetram:
Why did you do such a foolish thing? We have no right to make you lose your life!
Jane:
It's better this way. At least I... left an evidence that I have lived in this world...
The light from Walcury surrounds Jane and takes her away.
Jane:
Kyaaaa~~~
Julian tries to reach her, Grasia steps in front of him in time.
Gracia:
It's useless... Julian! It's impossible to save Jane now!
Medion:
What... what was that!
Medion:
Could that be Walcury, the floating weapon that attacked Destonia?
Gracia:
Aah... Sir Medion is... Are you wakened by Jane's power, Prince? Yes. That's what attacked Destonia. Bulzome Sect's floating weapon, Walcury.
Medion:
I made Julian and Lord Gracia... battle against that kind of thing?
Campbell:
Lord Gracia, what did you just say? About our weakening...
Synbios:
Amazing! Warcury... Is that the floating weapon everyone is talking about?
Medion:
Synbios... Is that you? Sir Synbios!
Dantares:
Sorry we are a little late, Campbell.
Palsis:
Synbios recovered sooner than we expected, so we hurried here as soon as possible. It seems like you've been through a difficult battle.
The three forces join in front Remotest
Synbios:
The lady Walcury took away... is the one who saved me, right?
Medion:
She saved Synbios? Did something happen to Synbios' Army too?
Palsis:
It's a shame to say this. It's the Rainblood... When Synbios is taken as hostage, we were forced to battle Julian's Army.
Dantares:
And When Julian's Army defeated them, Lord Synbios was in critical condition. It's her that saved him.
Grantack:
What? This kind of thing also happened to Synbios's Army?
Synbios:
Were it not for her and Julian's army, I would be... It's such a shameful thing to say.
Medion:
No. Not only you. The same thing happened to us also.
Campbell:
What does "the same thing happened to us" mean?
Medion:
Don't you two remember? We had fallen into a trap, and were captured by Great Priest of Bulzome Sect.
Grantack:
Now that you mentioned it... that's right! Then... Why are we here?
Campbell:
They said we regained our conscious... meaning we were brainwashed, right? Could it be... we had attacked...
Kate:
If Jane didn't help us with her power, you would stay like that forever.
Isabella:
My brother... please don't blame yourself. We knew we'd meet situation like this before we begin the expedition.
Benetram:
That's right, Sir Medion. The traps you two armies met are unavoidable even for us.
Gracia:
Because we were on our way to the Ark Hill, and made you targets for the enemy... We were the ones who caused you trouble.
Benetram:
But because of that, we found a light of hope on entering the Evil Deity's Shrine.
Palsis:
Just like what Lord Benetram would say... So Jumesin is not enough?
Gracia:
Jumesyn is essential... But there's also... something else.
Grantack:
Aah! That's great! Let's get the mysteries solved as soon as possible...
Benetram:
I'll explain everything in Remotest.
Synbios:
But... Julian is....
Gracia:
Julian, I understand your feeling toward Jane. But just standing here won't change anything.
Benetram:
Her life would be unharmed, or they wouldn't bring her back with Walcury. If my guesses are correct, she should be in Evil Deity's Shrine, waiting for your rescue.
Gracia:
Come on, Julian.
Synbios:
She's the one who saved my life. I'll help you too, so let's go!
Medion:
Were it not for us she wouldn't have to suffer this. We must save her. Come on, she's waiting for you, Julian.
Keeper appears
Keeper:
You're finally here, the Legendary Expedition of the Innovator.
Synbios:
Who are you?
Keeper:
I'm keeper, the one destined to welcome the Legendary Expedition.
Medion:
To welcome us? That means... There are people other than Bulzome Sect living in Remotest?
Keeper:
After the battle between Bulzome and Innovator, an Elvesem fortress is left in Remotest. And guarded by our clan.
Synbios:
We never knew such a place existed...
Keeper:
Although we couldn't stop Bulzome's action, at least we can keep Bulzome priests out. We Inferior Innovators don't have the power to confront Vandals. We can only count on you.
Keeper:
If we keep standing here, there's no telling when we'll be attacked. Please enter our cathedral.
Synbios's Army, caught in Rainblood's trap, was saved by the hard work of Julian's Army. Then Julian's Army continues their death-defying battle at the volcano area.
In front of Remotest, Medion's Army started another battle. To break the spell forced on them by Bulzome Sect, they tried defeating the Great Priest, but in vain.

What saved them is the negative force of Jane's. For that she brought Bulzome's fury upon her, and was taken back to him by the Walcury. Joined by Synbios' Army, the three armies are ready to challenge the final battle.
