Captain Domino:
Who could have predicted such a delicate Prince Medion could have become so dependable?
Kate:
There wouldn't have been a room for growth for the prince if the Emperor Abduction fiasco didn't happen in Saraband, right?
Bresby:
He also met with Lord Synbios, who is at the same age as the Prince, and told me he is greatly influenced by Lord Synbios' courage to face the harsh destiny.
Captain Domino:
Synbios? you mean, Lord Conrad's [son]?
Bresby:
Yes. The one that used to be the finest general in the Empire and the one ultimately responsible for the independence of the Republic 20 years ago, the one that should be hated... he is Conrad, the most powerful figure in the Republic.
Kate:
Hated? Sir Bresby. The only people that hate him are Imperial officials. Other than them, noone speaks ill of him.
Captain Domino:
Just as you say, Kate. Lord Conrad has thrown away all his privileges to abandon a prejudiced society and to make a nation of equality.
Donhort:
However, that Republic has reached its limit. Its citizens, who are used to being shared, began to strain the Republic's economy.
Kate:
How... did that happen? Is it because of the bad harvest caused by the bad weather that caused the economic crisis and civil war?
Donhort:
That's one reason. However, the primary reason for the civil war is... caused between the government officials who decided to hoard the food after predicting the future disaster and the citizens who wanted to enjoy the present.
Bresby:
I understand how both sides feel, however, I didn't know one of discontent general would have rebelled against the Republic.
If Edmund joined the Force
Kate:
You must be talking about General Edmund. He plotted of murdering Republican King Benetram by siding with General Garzel, right?
Bresby:
It's General Crewart's plan. I have heard General Edmund originally has very strong loyalty. I guess he was tricked for a moment.
Captain Domino:
That's Crewart alright. He called my Flagship a pile of trash...I won't forget that humiliation.
If Edmund did not join the Force
Kate:
You must be talking about the general who aided General Garzel's plan to trap and murder Republican King Benetram.
Bresby:
If such a loyal General Edmund could have grown a seed of discontent within his heart, I can only guess he must have been tricked by a cunning trickery.
Captain Domino:
It must be a trap made by Crewart and his associates. After all, he treated my Flagship as a pile of trash. He certainly is a stupid general who can't see the true substance.
Donhort:
It is said we can find out about the general by checking out his subordinates. It looks like the true intent of the commander of General Crewart and the others is revealed.
Captain Domino:
It's Prince Arrawnt, isn't it? He certainly is a overambitious person.
Bresby:
General Crewart, who made a pact with the Buzome Sect is very likely to be involved in the abduction of the Emperor... however, there is nothing we can do at present time.
Donhort:
Bah, it's still the same ol' Empire. Ever since the old days, even the criminals can get away with bribery, Even at present, the Republic is still better fared against the Empire.
Captain Domino:
Excuse me, Donhort! I think you are coming here to pick a fight against the Imperials, not helping them!
Kate:
Ah, speaking of Prince Medion, what is his relationship with that person.. Lord Synbios?
Donhort:
Prince Medion can't be measured by the Imperial standard. I heard he is in a deep friendship with Synbios after fighting a couple of battles together.
Captain Domino:
Is that true, Bresby?
Bresby:
It seems they've fought a few battles together and now, they share a friendship which they can understand each other... what is wrong with that, Captain?
Captain Domino:
It should not happen, Bresby...
Bresby:
What? What should not happen?
Captain Domino:
The ideology of the Republic is incompatible with the Imperial one. We can't even count the number of people killed by approaching the Republic.
Bresby:
Those killers must be Rainbloods. That murdering organization is getting rid of everyone who seek peace...even Prince Medion?
Kate:
We shouldn't really think about that. The Rainbloods are a direct army of the Emperor. They can't really do anything until the Emperor is rescued...
Donhort:
Nope, the Rainbloods are still active... Actually, we are coming from having just fought against them in Elbesem.
Bresby:
Is that...true, Donhort?!
Captain Domino:
That can't happen...absolutely not...
Donhort:
Are you saying I am lying? Well then, ask either Julian or Gracia then.
Bresby:
I don't think the captain said that because he thinks you are a liar. Donhort, if what you are saying is true, that means... they are being directed by the Emperor at the present time. That also means, Emperor Domaric is still reigning supreme in this world.
Gracia:
It seems like a serious discussion.
Donhort:
Did we wake you up... from your deep sleep...?
Gracia:
I felt confined by staying inside the ship. I just wanted to have some fresh sea air so I have been watching the sea from the window.
Kate:
Speaking of it, Sir Gracia... is born in Elbesem Island. You must have been watching sea from the beginning.
Gracia:
I was born in my father's late years. Even my mother has fallen ill, never to recover even before I was able to recognize myself, so I barely feel the parental love. The monk, who remained after, followed my father's last words, and has given me a harsh training ever since I was young. Since then, the sea was only thing that was able to comfort me.
Kate:
I can understand...Sir Gracia. You have spent a sad childhood. I could have never bear that myself.
Gracia:
Yes, I have thought the same, and cursed my destiny. However, after hearing Julian's life story, I have decided to think otherwise.
Donhort:
It's a story in a far away nation called Enrich, where he lost his father by a Vandal.
Gracia:
After he lost his father, who was a mercenary, he continued on his journey with his father's friend, who decided to be Julian's stepfather. Eventually, even his stepfather fell victim in the war.
Bresby:
Vandals...who are only appearing in ancient tales... When I have heard he is seeking a revenge against one, to tell you honestly, I have doubted his sanity.
Gracia:
That can't be helped, Sir Bresby. Many have thought vandals as a fabrication and denied to believe their existance.
Captain Domino:
Your words bear great importance. Actually, even the existance of the Innovators...oh pardon me.. is no longer felt among us.
Gracia:
No, that's a good thing, Captain. Even Innovators, which I am, have been disappearing from this world. Bulzome Sect, who seek to revive the Thousand Years Kingdom, and the revival of the vandal, Bulzome... it seems this event is rather a...!
Donhort:
What's wrong, Sir Gracia...?
Gracia:
I don't know... I don't know..but... I think I can feel a murderous intent getting near us.
Bresby:
A murderous intent is getting near... what kind?
Gracia:
It's strong..and very evil... just like the Bulzome Sect...
Captain Domino:
Were they planning to ambush Flagship which sailed to seek an assistance to rescue Destonia?
Kate:
It was an abrupt sail, so we couldn't have enough soldiers aboard. What should we do, Sir Bresby?
Bresby:
Well, we did receive a few from Prince Medion. Along with Julian Battalion and you Kate... Moreover, Captain, you!
Captain Domino:
Me...? What about me?
Donhort:
Are you going to stand like that all day?
Captain Domino:
What... are you saying I'm more of a bother? How rude. You seems to underestimate a seaman greatly. Even though I look like this, when I was young...!
Gracia:
Captain, hurry to the cabin... they are almost here!
Kate:
No, Julian... we have to call the leader!
Julian:
......
When Edmund joined you
Edmund:
Don't forget about me!
Bresby:
General Edmund!
Edmund:
Watch out... they are... coming!
Masked Monk:
So, this is the Imperial ship Flagship which escaped from the Bulzome invasion?
Pegasus Masked Monk:
Stupid. If you have kept running away, you wouldn't have lost your lives! Destonia's inferior position won't reverse with such a pitiful force.
Masked Monk:
Heheh, you don't have to go to Destonia. We will defeat you here!
Bresby:
They are the ones who invaded Destonia! If we let them go alive, our existance will be revealed! Let's defeat them no matter what, Julian!
After the battle
Masked Monk:
Guh... I didn't know escaped Flagship has returned to Destonia with an Innovator, Gracia. An Innovator carrying the Staff of Besem...Walcuray's...biggest threat...
Bresby:
Then, I've been asked to escort Sir Gracia to fight against Walcuray?!
Masked Monk:
How funny, that the Empire would request a help from Gracia, whom the Emperor is seeking life of... gah, I'll tell you for last. Gracia, the Empire which you intended to save will take away your life... and the Staff of Besem...
Kate:
It's a lie! It's a trickery! What if something happened to the abducted Emperor?
Bresby:
It seems the Bulzome Sect has created such lie because they are worried of our assistance. Otherwise, we...
Donhort:
Is that so, Sir Bresby? What about Rainbloods then? I can't think of anything else other than the Emperor plotted it.
(Captain Domino):
How was the...battle?
Captain Domino:
Oh, it seems we are triumphant. Obviously, you people are truly strong. What's wrong? You don't seem to have faces for the victors.
Bresby:
The Bulzome Sect... even though we've won for now, they've died along with giving us a dilemma. The masked monk said the Emperor is seeking Sir Gracia's life and the Staff of Besem.
Donhort:
If this is true, Julian battalion saving Destonia is like saving the enemy.
Captain Domino:
Huh, but if it's Emperor Domaric... isn't he abducted at the present state?
Kate:
However, Rainbloods were active. The Emperor must have been commanding them from somewhere... It can't be helped even if he receives the suspision.
Gracia:
What do you think, Julian... Do you think we should stop saving the Empire as the Bulzome Monk has said?
Donhort:
Do you think this is a trap?
Begin choice options
Yes
Gracia:
Yes, I too am aware of the Emperor's intention. To think that the Rainblood, who only follows the Emperor's orders, attempted to take away my life...
Kate:
How...even without the evidence... are you going to abandon Destonia which is being invaded by the Bulzome Sect, Sir Gracia?!
Gracia:
However, I can't turn down the request to save the Empire either. You... it is your dire wish to fight against the vandal too, right, Julian?
Julian:
......
No
Gracia:
I agree, Julian. Even though we have the suspicion that the Emperor plots against me, there is no way to prove it yet.
Kate:
Then, continuing along, can we receive an assistance rescuing the Empire?
Gracia:
The purpose of my departure from Elbesem... is to fight against the vandal who seek to revive the Thousand Years Kingdom. It's your fight too, Julian.
Julian:
......
End choice options
Gracia:
Well then, it's decided, Sir Bresby. Let's team up and overcome Bulzome to reach the Imperial capital Destonia!
Donhort:
If it's Julian and Sir Gracia's wish, I don't have any say otherwise.
Bresby:
Then... are we still going on to save Destonia?
Captain Domino:
Now, we will reach Destonia shortly. Please rest in the passenger room until the arrival.
Headquarters
Bresby:
What can I do for you?
[sic: Always asked when talking to Besby and options are given]
Bresby:
Thanks to the current of the sea, we will reach Destonia sooner.
I would like to have some rest, but there is no time for that.
Kate:
If Prince Mageron still is battling in the Destonia Fortress, we would still be able to aid Destonia. The enemy wants to occupy the Fortress without causing any damage to it, as they want to use it as their base. We will surely get there in time.
Donhort:
I'm tired of the attempts of the Empire to get independence for its union. It is ironic that I am on the way back to help the Empire. 20 years have gone. The capital of the Empire probably changed since then.
Edmund:
There are supporters of Prince Arrawant in the Empire, that have gotten in contact with Bulzome. Bulzome wouldn't be our only enemy at Destonia. Julian, don't forget about that!
Gracia:
What does Destonia look like today, as the city has been occupied by Bulzome? As the leader of the Empire is involved into this, things would get very complicated.
