Chapter 4: The Devil King's Revival
Ohohoho... your battles thus far have been most admirable, Ian.
This time, Shining Force, I think your capabilities are really going to be put to the test!
As such, I've carefully prepared a rather interesting plan for you.
Come out, Mishaela!
You're acting like a coward, as usual - do you intend to fight us or not?!
Ohohoho, you're certainly strong, I'll admit that much, however...
You'll be no match for him!
There's nothing Ian and the rest of us fear.
Adam, that may be the case so far, but it means nothing against that man.
I wonder if he's fully recovered yet? I assume so...
You used to rely on this man!
Well, come out!
Max walks onscreen, masked
That swordsman's mask....
Because of the mask he wears, he's been given the powers of darkness, and become a member of the Devil Army.
By doing this, he's joined his older brother, Kane, hasn't he?!
I think this fight's going to be most enjoyable!
What... what's this all about?!!
You have to try to defeat Max!
Well, Max... defeat them!
It looks like we'll have to fight Master Max...
Master Max, please wait!
We'll solve this curse, you'll see!
Adam tried to remove Max's mask...
...but the mask did not come off.
That's the Mask of Darkness. You can't remove it, unless you're a Devil.
I am Oddeye, but I don't know if that's a good thing for you.
Now I'll remove the mask that covers his face, myself.
This mask is protected by the Powers of Darkness, but it's possible for a Devil to remove it.
Oddeye approaches Max
I'll give it a try...
The Mask of Darkness that covered Max's face,
shattered into tiny pieces.
It seems as if I've been able to help him.
So, I shall leave.
Please wait a minute!
You said the Mask of Darkness could only be removed by a Devil...
... that means you're a Devil. So, why did you help Master Max?
I am indeed a Devil...
My master is Zeon, the King of Devils.
Long ago, my master Zeon was ensnared and sealed beneath the earth.
Darksol is your enemy, and he's my enemy too.
Only you - no-one else - can defeat him.
Feh, I talk too much...
Perhaps it was you who helped the Elder to escape from Eiku's fortress...
I knew I could depend on the new Shining Force!
Ian has guided us so far.
So, it was you...
I'm ashamed to say they put that mask on me when I was defeated in a fight with Lynx. Damn it!
It can't be that I had the curse as my brother, Kane! At least now, we've put an end to it.
How could this happen to both Max and Kane...
...nevertheless, you've skillfully made it this far. I was afraid, but thanks to you it seems like we'll be able to go home.
With that much power, Ian, perhaps we really can stop the Devil's revival.
Ian, may I too join the new Shining Force?
Max the Hero has joined the Force.
That should reassure the group, Ian.
Well, we should make haste and move on...
