    An area located at the Western side of Ishgria.
    It is said that a demon with the power of a Dragon rules over this land.
    Records about the various legends of ancient dragons were also found in this land.

    Opening - The land where dragons live
    Summoner has reached Fal Nerga thanks to Tilith's power.
    However, Paris seems to be deep in thought about something...


    {Summoner}……
    I have opened up the path to Fal Nerga.

    ……{Summoner}
    I am sensing a mysterious power from this area.
    It's something that's supposed to be so tremendous, so powerful, and so frightening
    yet, for some reason, it feels so familiar.....

    I am sure that of all people, you {Summoner} would know what this means.
    I may not be able to help but I have faith in you...

    Because after all, {Summoner} is still my precious summoner
    ……


    Paris:

    …………


    …………

    Ah!
    P, pardon me.
    I was just thinking about something...
    Oh no, I'm fine.
    Don't worry about it.
    Okay, let's do this again.
    {Summoner}, I've been waiting for you.
    Various myths and lore concerning dragons have been left behind in this land of Fal Nerga.
    I think we can assume that the demon who rules this land is somewhat related to dragons, but still nothing is certain at this point.
    What I can say is that we're definitely nearing the end of our Ishgria crusade.
    We have also made progress with the demons that we are supposed to slay.
    There's the threat of Karna Masta to worry about, but let's first aim to rescue Miss Tilith.
    The present me can only say this much for certain...
    I, I'm sorry...
    Don't mind me, it's nothing really.
    Let's get going, Seria is waiting for us up ahead.
    Part 1 1/2 - Something lacking
    Paris opens up her troubles honestly.
    It seems that Paris has been thinking about what she has been lacking.

    -The flame dragon's roar-

    Paris:
    Sorry to keep you waiting Seria.

    Seria:
    ……Paris, is there something that has been bothering you?

    Paris:
    Eh!? Wh, what's this about all of a sudden?

    Seria:
    Mmhn, I just thought that you didn't seem like your normal self.
    Maybe it's just me?

    Paris:
    Y, yes, I'm perfectly fine.

    Seria:
    Is that so? I actually thought that you were obsessing about what Am=Yunos told you.

    Paris:

    …………

    Seria, you amaze me at how sharp you can be at times.
    Well, I guess it's no use keeping it from you.
    Yes, it's just as you said.
    What Am=Yunos said has been bothering me,
    when she told me "Are your thoughts being swayed once again?"

    Seria:
    Ok, so what's the deal?
    Are you being swayed?

    Paris:
    No, I have been acting according to my own will.
    It was my will to join the Summoner Hall, it was also of my own will to come to this land to save Miss Tilith.

    Seria:
    Then there shouldn't be any cause for concern, right?

    Paris:
    Yes, but Am=Yunos singled me out and told me that I was the only one who lacked resolve.
    That is the truth, and after hearing that, I did feel like I was lacking something when I tried comparing myself to you guys.

    Seria:
    So something is missing......

    Paris:
    Yes, and I was thinking about what that was...

    Eerie sounding voice:
    All this chattering nonsense while in enemy territory......
    Humans really are so trivial.

    Seria:
    Who's there!?

    [​IMG]
    Dragon-type Demon:
    I am Riomerg, the dragon who serves under the ruler of this land,
    "Shining Dragon Lord Bariuon"

    Riomerg:
    You foolish humans.
    I shall not let you advance further!
    Part 1 2/2 - The dragon servant's warning
    It seems that the henchman of this land's ruler was the one who attacked.
    He warns the summoner not to interfere with his master and flees.


    [​IMG]
    -The flame dragon's roar-

    Riomerg:
    I see. So it does seem that you are worthy enough to be in this region.

    Seria:
    Hey what's with you, attacking us all of a sudden!
    Are you also plotting to invade Grand Gaia and Elgaia?

    Riomerg
    Hmph, rubbish.
    My lord has no interest in such things.
    He just wishes for this land to return to the way it was.
    And my duty is to destroy anyone who gets in the way.

    Paris:
    Are you saying that we're getting in his way?

    Riomerg:
    I am aware that you are trying to eliminate the demonic threats throughout Ishgria.
    I am also aware that you have already succeeded in defeating a number of demons for that purpose.
    You will definitely be getting in the way of my lord if I just let you do as you please,
    especially that summoner over there who goes by the name of {Summoner}.
    I have heard of the threat that you possess.
    Let me just tell you this first before you go on your troublesome rampage.
    My lord Bariuon is conducting a certain ceremony at Sacred Mt. Nerga.
    If you are going to get in his way, then I will not hold back on you the next time that we meet.
    Even if you're Master Karl's friend.

    Seria:
    Hold it right there!
    You know about Karl!?

    Paris:
    He's gone...

    Seria:
    What does he mean by "Master" Karl!
    {Summoner}!
    Have you heard anything from Karl about that Dragon-head?

    Paris:
    Dragon-head... That's... so literal...
    But {Summoner},
    you really don't know huh?

    Seria:
    Whatever.
    At least we now know where we're supposed to be headed.

    Paris:
    Yes, you're right.
    The Sacred Mt. Nerga.
    I'm sure that we'll get more information once we get there.

    Seria:
    C'mon {Summoner}, let's get a move on!
    Someone weird will bound to show up again if we keep on lingering at the same spot!

    Paris:
    Yes, just thinking about who might show up next is giving me the creeps...
    Let's hurry up to the next place...
    Part 2 - Karl's objective
    As the son of the demon Bariuon who rules the land,
    Karl tells the summoner about his plans.

    -Water Dragon town of Trave-

    Paris:
    An underwater city....
    I wonder what sort of history this place has...

    Seria:
    Uh, Paris... I thought you were having a dilemma about something?

    Paris:
    Ah, well, you can say that this has become a habit of mine....
    B, but doesn't it pique your curiosity?
    You know, the reason why a city like this is no longer in existence?

    ???:
    The Aquatic Dragon City of Trave. This city was destroyed by Karna Masta.

    Seria:
    Karl!

    Karl:
    Yo.

    Seria:
    Don't "Yo" us!
    We didn't get to have a good talk with you back then because of Bertz, but you owe us all an explanation this time, got that!

    Karl:
    Haha, please go easy on me.
    But then again, I too would like to talk about a few things today.
    Can I discuss those first?

    Paris:
    !?

    Seria:
    *Sigh* fine.
    Go ahead and talk.
    In exchange, you better answer all my questions properly afterwards!

    Karl:
    Yes, I promise.
    So about this city...

    Paris:
    You mentioned that Karna Masta was behind the destruction of the city,
    what do you mean by that?

    Karl:
    C, calm down Paris.

    Paris:
    Oh, I, I'm sorry...

    Karl:
    Uhhh, let's see, demons who had the blood of aquatic dragons and the like used to reside in this city.

    Seria:
    Demons who had the blood of water dragons?

    Karl:
    Yes, demons like Riomerg-san.
    You've already met him, right?

    Paris:
    Yes, I wouldn't say it was a pleasant encounter, though...

    Karl:
    ……Yeah, I think I can imagine how that one went.
    Uhm, sorry about that, I guess...
    But you know, he's actually quite a caring demon!
    Oh, but Riomerg-san is of a fire dragon descent, not a water dragon.

    Seria:
    Whatever, I don't care.
    So you're saying that there was a lot of his kin here back then, huh?

    Karl:
    Correct.
    Since you already fought against him, you now have an idea but each and every single one of his kin was pretty strong.

    Paris:
    Just thinking about an entire group of them where every single one is at that level is terrifying...

    Karl:
    Yeah. It also seemed like that faction was considered a huge force even here in Ishgria.
    However, they never left this land because they had no desire to rule over other lands.

    …………

    But even all of them were destroyed in an instant by the hands of Karna Masta who fell down from Grand Gaia...

    Paris:
    I can't believe it...
    Are you saying that is how powerful Karna Masta is?

    Karl:
    Yeah, even I couldn't believe it at first.
    Even Riomerg-san was quite strong by himself.
    And despite having an entire group of demons at his level, I heard that it was a quite a lopsided defeat.

    Paris:
    …………


    Karl:
    {Summoner},
    it's a fact that you have defeated the god Lucius.
    However, it's also a fact that he has already lost his power then.
    After talking to the demons in this land, I came to know about the true strength and terror that gods possess.
    The heroes that we are summoning at our disposal---
    Even those heroes stood no chance against these gods.
    Isn't it that we have become too overconfident and have overestimated our abilities?
    So let's just revive Karna Masta, kill him and obtain true peace and freedom once and for all.
    Don't you think that's too conceited?
    Look, even all the powerful demons in this land fear him.
    I for one, cannot take him lightly at all

    Seria:
    It's not like we're underestimating him!
    But we can't save Tilith if we don't do that!

    Karl:
    No, she can still be saved.

    Seria:
    What do you mean!?

    Karl:
    Tilith can't budge because she's preventing the demons of this land from entering Grand Gaia, correct?

    Seria:
    Yes, that is correct.

    Karl:
    Then all we have to do is to not make these demons go to Grand Gaia.

    Seria:
    That's what I'm telling you, we have no means of doing that and that's why we're here!
    And we also don't know who or when someone is going to release Karna Masta's seal!

    Karl:
    I won't let that happen.

    Seria:
    You're not making any sense! How!?

    Karl:
    The ruler of this land Bariuon and his subordinates will rise and unify Ishgria.

    Seria:
    Eh!?
    Is such a thing even possible?
    But how?

    Karl:
    I'll make him do it.
    I'll show you.
    I, the son of the demon Bariuon.

    Seria:
    The demon Bariuon is Karl's father!?

    Karl:
    Yes, you even heard it from Bertz, right?
    That the blood of the demon who rules this land runs inside of me.

    Paris:
    So you're not a descendant from many generations down, but you're actually a direct relative?

    Karl:
    Yes, apparently so.

    Seria:
    But Karl, you never showed any signs of such in the past...
    Then who is your mother!?

    Karl:
    I have not been told about my mother.
    But I have the feeling that she's human.
    Well, how could I assume the form of a human in the first place if she wasn't, right?

    Seria:
    Karl...

    Karl:
    So that's how it is, and I'm against to what you're doing.
    Yeah, I don't agree with the Akras Summoner Hall who are trying to defeat Karna Masta.

    Paris:
    …………


    Karl:
    That's all I have to say.
    Well Seria, please do ask me your questions now.

    Seria:
    Nevermind.
    Everything I wanted to know was already in you story, Karl.

    Karl:
    I see.
    Then I'll be going now.
    The next time we meet, I will be your enemy.
    I will have to prevent you from fulfilling you mission,
    as the son of the demon Bariuon.

    Seria:
    Karl...

    Karl:
    C'mon Seria, don't make that face.
    This is the path that I have chosen.
    And you know, I'm quite happy right now,
    especially about the fact that {Summoner} hasn't changed at all even after hearing my story.

    Seria:
    It's just that this guy's dense.

    Karl:
    Haha, could be so.
    But {Summoner}, you still consider me as your best friend, right?
    That's why I can fight you, while still regarding you as my best friend.
    ......Haha, that's kinda complicated.

    Seria:
    Yep, such a complicated relationship.

    Karl:
    Haha, Seria's so mean as usual.
    I'm sure that all of you will keep on advancing.
    That will mean that you will be fighting against Riomerg-san and myself.
    But hear out my only wish.
    DON'T DIE. No matter what.

    …………

    See you.

    Seria:
    That's so unreasonable of him...
    We also wish you the same, you know...
    {Summoner}, Paris, let's go!
    Now that it's come to this, we'll have to convince Karl by force!

    Paris:
    The path that I have chosen...
    The reason why I chose this path...
    The thing that I truly want to do...
    Part 3 - Mora's determination
    Mora, who has appeared once again in front of the summoner,
    seems to have felt something from Seria's words and has decided to take on her own path.


    [​IMG]
    -Ylesha Plains-

    Mora:
    I've been waiting for you...

    Seria:
    Mora!
    ...Rather... What's with that wound?

    Mora:
    Please do not mind me...
    I was just fighting against a troublesome opponent...

    Seria:
    ……Is that so.
    Then I won't ask about who your opponent was.
    So, why were you waiting for us?

    Mora:
    I thought I'd tell you about the demon who governs this land.

    Seria:
    If you're just going to tell us that he's actually Karl's father, then we already heard about that from Karl himself.

    Mora:
    Fufufu, is that so.
    Then Seria.
    What are you going to do about that?
    Karl who was once your comrade has decided to align himself with his father,
    a path that differs from the one you take.

    Seria:
    What else can we do?
    We'll just have to convince Karl when he appears before us again.
    If he's going to use force against us then we'll just return the favor.

    Mora:
    Fufufu, you never change.
    You just run straight towards the path that you have chosen.
    That may seem simple, but it's actually quite difficult to achieve.

    Seria:
    Even I had dilemmas all the time in the past.
    It's just that a lot of things happened, and I decided to stop worrying about every single thing so much.
    The reason why I'm here right now is because of my comrades.
    That's why if Karl is trouble, then I'll save him
    And I'll also save Tilith.
    That's all there is to it.

    …………

    W, well, even {Summoner} over here did prove somewhat useful
    so I'll save him too if he needs it, maybe, probably.

    Mora:
    Comrades helping one another...
    Fufufu, I guess that is the strength that you weak humans possess.
    But don't you think that there's a comrade who's dragging you down from the path that you are taking?
    For example.... that half-baked woman over there who is still undecided on her thoughts...

    Paris:

    Ugh...

    Seria:
    I won't deny that Paris is currently at the crossroads which makes her a nuisance at times.

    Paris:
    Seria!?

    Seria:
    But what's wrong with that?
    Anyone can have a dilemma at any given time.
    It's just that Paris has that dilemma "now".
    Once she gets over it, then I'm absolutely sure that she'll show us her power that will go beyond your wildest dreams.
    I know Paris' strengths and weaknesses...
    I'm not her comrade who has fought alongside her for nothing, you know.

    Paris:

    Seria...


    Mora:

    …………


    Seria:
    {Summoner}!
    Why don't you say something too!
    I mean, you're the one who's being saved by Paris the most you know!

    Paris:
    Fufu, Seria, {Summoner}
    Thank you...

    Mora:
    Fufufu, that's right.
    Of course you'd say that, Seria.
    Then I shall proceed on my own path.
    Let me just give you one piece of advice.
    The strength of Shining Dragon Lord Bariuon who rules this land is on an entirely different dimension from the demons that you have fought up to now.
    But because of that, he also used up a large portion of his power to seal Karna Masta.
    I have no idea of how much power he has remaining, but do you really think that Karl can just forsake his father in this weakened state?
    And what about you, will you really be able to fight Karl who is in this predicament?
    I will be looking forward to the outcome of this path that you have chosen...

    Seria:
    Don't look forward to it.
    I only do what I can at any given time...
    ……Paris, {Summoner},
    let's go!
    At whatever rate, we also have to talk to the father and not just Karl himself!

    Paris:
    Thank you Seria……
    But still, I……
    Part 4 - Paris' doubts
    Paris, being cheered up by Seria,
    reveals her feelings to the summoner, but she is still in doubt.


    [​IMG]
    -Fort Maharada-

    Paris:

    …………


    Seria:
    ……Paris, you're still worried about what Mora just said?

    Paris:
    Yes, even when you said all those things, it's still a fact that I'm still confused and I'm also worried that I'll be a burden to you at some point because of this...
    Will I be okay at this rate?...

    Seria:
    Sigh. Paris, you really are such an intelligent fool.
    Even if you were to drag us down in the future,
    above all of that, you have always, and still are, a huge help to us.

    Paris:
    But I'm scared that things will be too late when it happens...

    Seria:
    Argghhh--- you really are so stupid!
    What I'm saying is that we'll be in trouble if we don't have Paris with us!
    If you've got all the time to think about such petty things, then let's hurry up and save Tilith!
    See what you've done {Summoner}!
    You're not following me up properly here, and that's why Paris is confused!
    I'll be going ahead, so make sure to cheer Paris up!

    Paris:

    …………

    I guess that's just really like her to try and cheer me up like that.
    It really makes me happy.
    But still, I'm not like her...
    I'm sorry {Summoner}.
    I'm well aware that now is not the time for this...
    I joined the Summoner Hall in order to change the Randall Empire as an outsider.
    And I am now in Ishgria in order to save Miss Tilith.
    I believe that I will be fighting against Karna Masta for people to obtain peace.
    I'm fine with that.
    But after that, I...
    I'm sorry.
    I never once thought that defeating Karna Masta would be easy.
    I am also aware that we should be concentrating on that right now.
    But still.. I...
    I'm sorry.
    {Summoner}.
    I've been doing nothing but apologize to you...
    It looks like my own weaknesses just come out naturally while I'm talking to you.
    It's like I'm just depending on you too much.
    I have to pull myself together!
    Alright, let's go forward!
    Seria's waiting for us.


    Grahdens:
    It seems that Paris is having a dilemma.

    Owen:
    Hmph, pondering over such a trifle thing,
    That's why even demons are making fun of her.

    Grahdens:
    Don't say that.
    She will definitely play an important role in Elgaia from here on.
    We have to let her experience all these troubles and pain right now for the sake of her own growth.
    I am sure that the experience that she has garnered from her journey with {Summoner}, Karl and Seria will benefit her in the future.

    Owen:
    Grahdens.
    You're mean as always.

    Grahdens:
    I don't want to hear that from you...
    Anyway.
    We are done here. The path leading to Menon will open up soon.
    We'll just have to do what we're supposed to do now.

    Owen:
    That has been my original intent.
    I just accompanied you with your peeping habits this time.
    Come to think of it, this habit of yours caused us in the past to...

    Grahdens:
    Owen, just leave it at that!
    Let's hurry forward!

    Owen:
    Hmph, not just the young ones, but it looks like even us elders haven't changed our old ways...
    Part 5 1/2 - The power of the demon, unleashed
    Karl unleashes his power to fight against the summoner.
    But with still a cloud of doubt over his head, it was nothing more than an incomplete awakening.


    [​IMG]
    -Light Dragon City Shin-

    Paris:
    This place is...
    I can see traces that this place has been inhabited until very recently, but I wonder if this is the place where the fire dragon-type demons Karl mentioned used to reside in?

    Seria:
    Which means that there's a chance the dragon-head from a while will show up here?

    Paris:
    I don't know.
    According to the Summoner Hall's investigations, there are still settlements of small races scattered throughout Ishgria but there were no reports of cities this huge in existence.


    ???:
    Yeah, correct.
    You can say that this is the only city left in Ishgria right now.


    Seria:
    Karl!

    Karl:
    {Summoner},
    so you've finally come all the way here.
    This is the city where the fire dragon-type demons reside,
    "The Light dragon town of Shin".
    But we have made all the residents evacuate and take shelter so they won't have to be caught up in the battle that's about to take place here.

    Seria:
    Karl, what do you mean?

    Karl:
    Just as I told you at the Water Dragon town of Trave,
    the next time we meet, I'll be your enemy.

    Seria:
    Karl……

    [​IMG]
    Karl:
    C'mon Seria please don't make that face.
    I was actually looking forward to this time when I can go all out against {Summoner}!
    I'll show you the proof that the blood of the demon Bariuon runs through my veins!

    Appearance change
    {Back and forth}


    Ghh ghhh....
    GWOAAAAAHH!!
    Haaa, haaa, haaa, haaa...
    How about it? I'm sure that you guys can give your all when I'm looking like this, right?

    Seria:
    Karl, stop all this nonsense.
    No matter how you look, I won't be able to go all out on you.

    [​IMG]
    Karl:
    Seria...

    Paris:
    I'm on the same boat as Seria here.

    Karl:
    Paris……

    Seria:
    And to tell you the truth, I'm a bit disappointed since you look so much more normal than what I've imagined.
    Take a look at {Summoner}'s face.
    It looks so stupid! It's saying "That's it?"

    Karl:
    {Summoner}……
    B, but I……
    Gh…Gwaaa……

    Seria:
    Karl, what's the matter!?

    Karl:
    Guhhhh……

    ???:
    You look so pitiful, Master Karl.

    Karl:
    Riomerg-san……

    Riomerg:
    That's what you get for trying to use a demon's power with such a half-hearted resolve.
    Lord Bariuon will be saddened when he sees that appearance.

    Karl:
    He... has... nothing... to do... with this...

    Riomerg:
    Whatever.
    Let us first get out of here.

    Seria:
    Where are you planning to go to!

    Riomerg:
    Silence!
    I will just have to take Master Karl to a place far away from you.
    It seems that Master Karl's demonic blood isn't stable and he cannot fully awaken when he's near you.

    Paris:
    Stable?
    But if it stabilizes, then Karl will...

    Karl:
    Don't worry.. about.. it... Paris.
    This is... the path... I chose.

    Paris:
    The path... you chose...

    Riomerg:
    Master Karl, let us go.

    Seria:
    Do you think we'll let you get away!?

    Riomerg:
    Do you still intend to make Master Karl suffer further??

    Seria:
    Uggh……

    Riomerg:
    Don't worry. I'll be your opponent once Master Karl calms down.

    Karl:
    Rio... Merg-san...

    Riomerg:
    Summoners!
    I shall wait for you in the depths of this Light Dragon town!
    I shall defeat you and put an end to Master Karl's suffering!

    …………

    Master Karl, I shall show you how to use your power.
    Yes, the power of demons.

    Karl:
    Ggh... I'm sorry everyone...

    Paris:
    They're gone...
    {Summoner}, Seria, what should we do?

    Seria:
    What else can we do.
    Just like what that dragon-head said, we're heading towards the end of this city!
    And then we'll teach him who the real nuisance to Karl is!
    Sorry Paris but I won't be able to deal with your troubles for a while.
    The utmost priority right now is to smash that dragon-head!


    Paris:
    Fufu, you're right.
    I'll forget about my troubles for now.
    Karl looked like he was in pain, and there's just no way I can leave him like that.
    Ah, {Summoner}, wait!
    I understand that you want to make haste,
    but we all feel the same way.

    Seria:
    Hmph, he just always dilly-dallies along but it's nice to see him looking enthusiastic for a change.
    Then let's go!
    This time, we're going to change Karl's feelings for sure!
    Part 5 2/2 - Together, with Karl
    Karl who has accepted his problems has decided not to fight the summoner.
    In order to decide on their course of action, he heads towards Sacred Mt. Nerga together with them.

    -Light Dragon City Shin-

    Riomerg:
    Very well. I shall acknowledge your strength.
    And I would like to apologize for looking down on you.

    Seria:
    Haa, haa, haa...
    So what are you gonna do after apologizing?

    Riomerg:
    I shall now go all out on you.

    Seria:
    I kinda knew that's how it would go...
    {Summoner}, Paris,
    We're going into round 2, you guys ready?

    Paris:
    Yes, no problems here.

    Karl:
    Riomerg-san...
    That's enough...

    Riomerg:

    …………


    Seria:
    Karl, are you alright?

    Karl:
    Yeah. I just showed a lame side of me.
    More importantly...
    Riomerg-san.
    Thank you for fighting for my sake.
    But it's alright.
    This is my fight.
    So please withdraw from this.

    Riomerg:
    ……Understood.
    If Master Karl insists, then I shall step away.
    But if you insist on taking these people to Lord Bariuon then I will not hold back, even against you Master Karl.

    Karl:
    I know.
    I personally don't want to interfere with what he and you are trying to do.

    Riomerg:
    I will put my faith in those words.

    Karl:
    Phew, sorry everyone.
    I was trying to act cool when I was challenging you guys but look at me...

    Seria:
    Forget about that.
    So what are you going to do?
    Are you really going to fight us?

    Karl:
    No, I'll pass this time.
    I shouldn't have bothered challenging you when I clearly did not have a full resolve.

    Paris:

    …………


    Seria:
    So does this mean that you're going to reconsider everything?
    I don't think that Karl's the type who'd change his mind so easily, though.

    Karl:
    Haha, as expected of Seria.
    I'm glad that you understand me quite well.

    Seria:
    You shouldn't be saying things like that.
    There are people who get the wrong idea here and it'd just be a pain.
    So what are you going to do?
    You won't change your mind, but you won't fight us.
    Isn't that just selfishness?

    Karl:
    Uhmmm, about that.
    First, I want everyone to know about the ceremony that Bariuon is about to perform at the Sacred Mt. Nerga.

    Paris:
    Come to think of it, Riomerg also mentioned something about a ceremony.
    Karl, tell me, what sort of ceremony is this?
    What are the demons of this land trying to do?

    Karl:
    ……If this ceremony succeeds, Karna Masta will be returned to his original world.

    Seria:
    Eh, what do you mean?

    Paris:
    Are they trying to open the gate?

    Karl
    Yeah.

    Seria:
    But isn't Tilith the only one who can do that right now?

    Karl:
    Yes, apart from accidental occurrences, Tilith is the only one who possesses the power to open the gate at her will.
    But it seems that you can open the gate, albeit with limitations, once you fulfill a a few complicated conditions.


    Paris:
    Now that you mention it, there have been numerous accounts of the gate being opened throughout history...

    Karl:
    Seeing how a demon with such massive power can barely manage to open it kinda implies that it's not something that can be done so simply, though.

    Seria:
    But if Karna Masta is returned to the world of the gods, then won't that actually cause a bigger problem?

    Karl:
    I honestly do not know.

    Seria:
    Then!

    Karl:
    But think about this.
    Karna Masta used to belong to that world.
    He was a nuisance there so he was exiled here,
    but what about the inhabitants of Ishgria?
    Don't you think that it's a problem for them as well?

    Paris:
    But what if he is returned to the world of the gods and he recovers to full strength.
    Won't that be more dangerous to the entire world?

    Karl:
    Then that will be the time we truly fight for freedom.
    Whatever the case, there's no need for that battle to take place here, right?
    If Tilith lends us her power, then we can go to a different world that will be able to take all the damage become the battlefield, right?

    Paris:
    You may have a point, but...

    Karl:
    And if that happens, then I'm sure that the demons of this land will cooperate with us.
    The inhabitants here know about Karna Masta's threat the most.

    Seria:
    ……Karl, do you really think things will pan out conveniently just like that?

    Karl:

    …………


    Seria:
    I've come to understand something after fighting all of those demons here in Ishgria.
    The demons will not cooperate once Karna Masta disappears from this world.
    They only cooperated with one another before because their world was on the brink of destruction.
    I'm sure the whatever happens to the god's world, Grand Gaia or Elgaia is of no concern to these demons.

    Karl:

    …………


    Seria
    Karl, can you tell me what you really feel?
    You've been acting weird ever since we came here.
    You kept on saying that you're taking your own path,
    yet your actions have been indecisive.
    Karl, aren't you actually having a dilemma?

    Karl:
    Seria……

    Seria:
    Could it be that something really important to you has started to waver your thoughts now that you've met your true father?
    Karl, what is that you really want to protect?
    Karl, what is the thing that's truly important to you?
    Please tell me that.
    And don't make sugar-coated excuses.

    Karl:
    Seria... I...

    Seria:
    AHHHHH ------- I feel so much better now!

    Karl:
    Seria?

    Seria:
    I was finally able to convey my true feelings to you, Karl!
    I've always felt uneasy since we met you again here in Ishgria.
    It felt like I was being dragged along everyone else's pace, and I was just on the receiving end of conversations, not being able to say stuff.
    Everything was just so confusing, to the point where I even lost track of what I really wanted to say but I was able to sum up my feelings thanks to Paris.

    Paris:
    Eh, me?

    Seria:
    Yes.
    Paris, you've been thinking about a lot of things, right?

    Paris:
    Y, yes……

    Seria:
    So I imitated you and I stared pondering over a lot of things as well.
    Why couldn't I talk properly to Karl whenever I'd meet him?
    What is that I really want to say?
    That's why I was able to say all of this thanks to Paris.
    Thanks ♪


    Paris:
    Seria……

    Karl:
    Haha, I really don't stand a chance against you Seria.
    I'm sorry.
    I've been acting tough all this time but truth is, I was also having a dilemma.
    And it was all concerning myself so I didn't want to bother you guys about it and tried to shoulder it all.
    But that isn't how things are done.
    If I had a dilemma, then I should've consulted it with you.
    I have you guys to talk to, after all.

    Seria:
    You really are an idiot, Karl.
    I can't believe you never realized something as obvious as that.

    Karl:
    Haha, you're right.
    {Summoner}, I'm sorry.
    You're my best friend, yet I never consulted you,
    shouldered all these thoughts and proceeded on my own.
    But worry no more.
    I'll be counting on you more from now on.
    I still haven't cleared up my dilemma, you know.

    Paris:
    Eh, is that so!?

    Seria:
    Duh, of course not.
    Karl only talked to us about what he was truly confused about.
    So Paris, please be at ease.
    No matter when, and no matter what the situation may be,
    we will always be your ally.

    Paris:
    Seria... Thank you...

    Karl:
    Alrighty, since that's that, I'll be going with you guys!
    Off to the Sacred Mt. Nerga we go!
    I'm going to let my dilemma be known to those actual people who are concerned!

    Seria:
    Yup, that's just like the good 'ol Karl we know, I guess.

    …………

    {Summoner}, good for you.
    Looks like you best friends won't be fighting one another for a while.
    Part 6 1/2 - Lugina's sword skills
    Enter Bertz and Lugina as they talk about the perils that await once Karna Masta is revived.
    However, Lugina looks like he wants to fight Summoner...


    [​IMG]
    -God-devouring spider's web-

    Seria:
    Say, Karl.

    Karl:
    What's up?

    Seria:
    Can't you revert back to your old form again?

    Karl:
    Uhmmm, I wonder.
    Perhaps, if I can just control this power properly, but looks like that's impossible for me right now.
    And when I try to exert some strength, I actually feel like I'd lose control and run riot.
    I might actually be treading a fine line right now, you know.

    Seria:
    Sigh, and yet you're so upbeat when talking about it.
    So in other words, you're still having a dilemma, huh?

    Karl:
    Yeah, I'm still not fully sold on Granpa Grah's plans of releasing the seal and defeating him, let alone sending him back to his original world.
    But then again, keeping things the way they are also seems like we're just chickening out...

    Seria:
    So you really have no clue about what to do.

    Karl:
    Seems that way.

    Seria:
    Sigh. What about you Paris?

    Paris:
    Sorry.
    I still haven't summed up my thoughts yet...

    Seria:
    Is that so...
    I don't think Paris has to rush it but I hope you're not forgetting that we're in Ishgria now.

    Paris:
    Yes, I know that.

    Seria:
    And {Summoner},
    on the other hand, you should be thinking more!
    You absentmindedly waltz into things, which always puts you in deep doodoo, right!?

    Karl:
    Haha, I really missed this feeling.
    The only thing left is for Tilith to return and start arguing with Seria, then it would be perfect.


    Seria:
    Stop spewing nonsense, and let's get going!
    Our objective here has always been to save Tilith!

    Karl:
    Yeah, you're right.
    Seria, I'm really amazed by you.
    You're even prepared to go up against Karna Masta for that purpose.

    Seria:
    Wait Karl... are you making fun of me?

    Karl:
    Of course not.
    I was praising you.

    ???:
    My, my, but that "praise" wasn't done in good taste you see.

    [​IMG]
    Bertz:
    Greetings everyone, how are you today?

    Seria:
    How are we? I wasn't really feeling that bad, but now I feel awful after seeing you.

    Bertz:
    Hahaha, which means that I have quite a huge impression on Ms. Seria here for I am able to change her mood!
    I am most honored.

    Seria:

    …………

    Paris, you should learn from this guy's optimism.

    Paris:
    Y, yes...

    Bertz:
    Oh my, no, no, no--- I would rather for Ms. Paris to be deep in thought as she is much more alluring when she's slightly somber.

    Paris:
    Well, thank you...

    Karl:
    So what brings you here Bertz-san?

    Bertz:
    Oh my, if it isn't Mr. Karl!
    Long time no see!
    But anyway, what is going on with that appearance of yours!?

    Karl:
    You're obviously faking that.
    I don't even have to tell you about this, right?

    Bertz:
    Oh, I do have an idea about it.
    It's just that I wanted to hear it straight from Mr. Karl's mouth.

    ???:
    You still haven't gotten to the gist?
    This chatter is taking too long.

    Seria:
    Lugina!
    Where the heck have you been off to!
    And why in the world are you together with Bertz?

    Lugina:
    Keh, I'm not obligated to explain to you.

    Bertz:
    No, no, you should give a proper explanation!
    Even if you were acting as a spy, they're still your former comrades right?

    Paris:
    ……Is that true?

    Lugina:
    So what about it if it was?

    Bertz:
    Hahaha, Lugina, you seem to be having so much fun.

    Lugina:
    ...Karl.
    That's quite an enjoyable look you've got going on right there.
    It suits you well as it clearly reflects how filthy you are inside.

    Karl:
    Not bad, right?
    I actually don't mind it that much.


    Lugina:

    …………

    Keh, irritating as always, I see...
    But I didn't come here for you today.
    {Summoner}!
    It seems like those elder codgers coaxed you into fighting Karna Masta.
    I always thought you had a few screws loose in your noggin, but it seems like you've finally gone full retard!
    You're a fucking nuisance!
    You're off to revive a sleeping God of destruction?
    That's why I decided to align myself with the Elgaia Federation.
    It's much easier to fight against you blokes instead of going up against a Deity.
    If you still insist on advancing then it looks like I'll be your opponent.
    And unlike before, I don't have to hide anything anymore, so I'll show you my true swordfighting skills.


    Bertz:
    And that's how it is. We from the federation are against the revival of Karna Masta.
    If any one of you happens to have the same opinion then you are free to join our side anytime.
    Most especially Ms. Seria, I shall welcome you with open arms ♪


    Seria:
    As usual, they just say whatever they want and then disappear.
    Oh whatever.
    Let's not bother about it and just keep on pressing forward.

    Paris:
    But what are we going to do about Lugina?

    Seria:
    Nothing.
    If he gets in the way then we'll just have to smash his head in.

    Karl:
    That's right.
    I'm getting the impression that he's also plotting something.

    Paris:
    Whatever that is he's plotting, I hope it's something decent...
    What about you Karl?
    Weren't you talking about something with Bertz before?

    Karl:
    Yeah, he fed me a lot of unnecessary info rather one-sidedly.
    Well, thanks to that, I was able to meet Bariuon, but it also led to me having a dilemma, and look at me now.
    So don't mind me.
    Anyway, {Summoner}, be on your toes.
    I'm sure that Lugina is itching to have a go with you.

    Seria:
    Sigh. Boys are such a hassle.
    Whatever.
    I'll root for you just this time so do whatever it takes to smash Lugi-kun inside out.
    I have no clue as to what he's thinking, but we still have to punish him for making us even remotely worried for a while.
    Alright, let's go!


    Paris:
    Oh, so Seria was actually a bit worried about him...
    Part 6 2/2 - Unseen views
    Lugina who has reaffirmed the summoner's strength gives up on stopping them from reviving Karna Masta,
    and once again decides to join their journey


    [​IMG]
    -God-devouring spider's web-

    Lugina:
    I guess that'll do.
    Hey Bertz.
    I told you, these guys just won't stop.
    And what's troublesome is that he may be a fool, but he's pretty damn strong.

    Bertz:
    Oh my, is that so...
    Then what do we do?

    Lugina:
    I'll be going together with them.
    I'll make my detailed report once everything has been settled, so make sure to prepare a hefty reward for me.

    Bertz:
    Hahaha, fine, I get it.
    I'll make sure to prepare something that will completely satisfy you.

    Lugina:
    And another thing,
    don't ever get in my way again.
    Got that?

    Bertz:
    Roger that.
    But have I ever gotten in your way in the first place, even once?

    Lugina:
    Too many times for me to remember every goddamn single one of them.

    Bertz:
    Aww, that's so harsh.
    Well then everyone, once again, please do take care of my best friend here.
    I shall be leaving Fal Nerga, so Ms. Seria, 'til the day we meet again.

    Seria:
    W, wait a sec!
    Don't go on leaving behind weird things!

    Lugina:
    Who are you calling weird!

    Seria:
    Who else but you!
    YOU!
    The nerve of you to come along with us again like it was nothing?
    Who gave you approval to do so!?

    Lugina:
    Hah, I'm saying that I'll be lending you my strength.
    Go on, don't be shy and thank me.

    Seria:
    Are you even listening to me?
    You moron!

    Lugina:
    Blah, blah, so noisy!
    No one gives a rat's ass about your opinion!
    Karl, {Summoner}!
    You must've had a hard time without me around, eh?
    I can imagine that you weren't able to defeat the enemies that you were supposed to be beating with this nincompoop of a woman and this gloomy girl here.

    Seria:
    Youuuuu----!

    Karl:
    Haha, both of you, give it a rest already.
    I'm actually enjoying this exchange again as I've missed it, but our priority right now is to move forward, right?
    But there's no question that having Lugina around is a huge boost to us.

    Seria:
    Well, I won't deny that...
    But still, he suddenly pops up with that jerk then picks a fight with us,
    and now that the fight's over, he's all familiar with us again.
    Don't you find that creepy!
    And look, it even seemed that Bertz didn't even give a damn about Lugina leaving him!
    Isn't it that this guy's really just an Elgaia spy!?

    Karl:
    Even so, that wouldn't be a problem.
    Actually, having him together with us allows us to monitor his actions properly making things actually easier, right?

    Paris:
    You've got a point……

    Karl:
    And I believe that Bertz already knows everything as he's taking action.
    Lugina, could it be that Bertz actually has his sights set at something totally different from all of this?

    Lugina:
    Could be.
    But like I said before, stop falling for everything he says.
    If you worry about it for even a bit, then you lose.

    Karl:
    Haha, that makes sense.
    I mean, just look at me now.

    Seria:
    That may be so, but...

    Lugina:
    Anyway, let's keep going forward.
    If we don't hurry, then that bastard Ark will release Karna Masta's seal.

    Seria:
    Wait, why are you taking command!
    And what is Ark doing?
    Have you got in contact with Ark here!?
    Wait up!

    Karl:
    Uhnnn, so lively as usual.
    {Summoner}, Paris, let's get going too.

    Paris:
    Fufu, it's really been a while since all of us got together like this.
    This actually eases things up for me since I don't have to do much of the talking now.
    Well, let's go {Summoner}.

    Bertz:
    Well then, this now drives Bariuon-san into a corner.
    And if "she" makes her move at that time, then all the conditions will come into place.
    I'm sure that Lugina, Summoner Karl and Ms. Paris will all be acting as expected, but I'm really worried about Ms. Seria and {Summoner}...
    Those 2 always make me nervous...
    Please make the proper moves this time.
    Part 7 - The way of the demon
    Karl was trying to convince his father,
    but Bariuon insists that demons should do their talking with their strength, and isn't entertaining him.

    -Sacred Mt. Nerga-

    Paris:
    So this is the Sacred Mt. Nerga......
    It has quite an atmosphere.

    Karl:
    Yeah, I heard that the power of all the dragons who ruled this land throughout history rests here.

    Paris:
    So they're planning to use that power to open the gate, huh.

    ???:
    Yes, and that is why I cannot allow you to advance any further.

    Karl:
    Riomerg-san!

    Riomerg:
    Master Karl, as I thought, you did join their group.

    Karl:
    No, please listen!
    I want to speak with everyone!
    And I want to find a different method that all of you would approve!

    Enormous voice:
    Blasphemy.
    That is in fact what someone who lives in a different world would say.

    -Appears-

    Riomerg:
    Lord Bariuon!

    Seria:
    Th, this is Karl's dad?

    Lugina:
    Keh, he's got quite the daunting presence unlike his son...

    Bariuon:
    ...Hmph.
    Riomerg, the ceremony is about to commence.
    Start ensuring the security of the surroundings.
    There is a far greater threat compared to these imbeciles.

    Riomerg:
    B, but Lord Bariuon...

    Karl:
    Please listen to me!

    Bariuon:
    My ears are shut to someone who could not even control his demonic power properly.
    If you want to say something to me, then get it across with your might.
    Did I not tell you that this is the absolute way in these lands?
    Blood relations are of no meaning.
    I am the mightiest in this land.
    And I shall do as I please.
    I will make this ceremony a success, and send Karna Masta back to the world of the gods.

    Karl:
    W, wait!

    -Vanish-

    Riomerg:
    Master Karl, as I said earlier, I won't be going easy this time.
    I shall not let you pass and intrude the ceremonial grounds!

    Karl:
    Riomerg-san!

    Karl:
    Ugh...

    Lugina:
    Looks like we're in for good times now.
    Right, "Master Karl"?!

    Seria:
    My goodness, you're really rotten to the core...

    Lugina:
    Hah, I thought you were that spoiled goody-two-shoes honor student, but look at his dysfunctional family!
    Go on, spit it out! Yeah, that's right, that dark and filthy feeling inside of you!

    Karl:

    …………

    Haha, sorry Lugina but I'm done with that phase.
    All I have to do now is to face everything head on.
    {Summoner}, you heard what Bariuon said, right?
    If you want to say something, say it with your might.
    This just means that we have to defeat him ourselves.
    At least it isn't complicated or anything, right?

    Seria:
    Karl, are you really fine with that?

    Karl:
    Yeah, I don't mind it at all.
    Rather, I actually want to ask for your help.
    I don't think that I alone can beat him.

    Paris:
    I understand how you feel...
    That daunting presence he had, I now know why Mora said that his strength is on a different dimension.

    Lugina:
    Tsch, what a pain in the ass but we've got no choice.
    {Summoner}, the enemy is your best friend's old man.
    You should fight him properly, got that!

    Seria:
    Oh I see Lugina, you're trying to slack off huh by passing responsibility.

    Karl:
    Haha, {Summoner},
    I'm also looking forward to your exploits.
    Well then, let's go.
    Show that hardheaded guy that power of yours that defeated Lucius!
    Part Ending - The start of the conspiracy
    While in battle against Bariuon, Mora suddenly emerges out of nowhere and steals his power.
    What is these words that she said to the group?


    [​IMG]
    -Sacred Mt. Nerga-

    Bariuon:
    Hmph, that's quite impressive for a human to go this far against me.

    Seria:
    Haa, haa, haa...
    Looks like we made it in time...

    Lugina:
    {Summoner}!
    There you go again, doing as you please!

    Paris:
    We had no other choice.
    {Summoner} moving independently at that time was the correct decision.

    Lugina:
    Shut up!
    I know that!

    Karl:
    ……{Summoner},
    Bariuon.

    Bariuon:

    …………


    Karl:
    Bariuon, please listen to me.

    Bariuon:
    Did I not tell you to show me your strength?
    You have not shown me anything.
    It was this summoner here who displayed his mettle.

    Karl:
    Ugh……

    Bariuon:
    But if you cannot even control that demon power of yours then I'm sure that your strength does not amount to much.

    Karl:
    Then... Then I'll show you...
    My power!
    This is my power!

    Bariuon:
    Gwo...
    Th, this strength...
    Are you telling me...
    That you have full control of your demon power?

    Karl:
    Ugh...

    Seria:
    Karl!

    ???:
    It looks like he was only able to control his power for a moment because of his heightened emotions.

    Seria:
    Mora!

    Mora:
    Shining Dragon Lord Bariuon, I shall make use of that enormous power of yours.

    Bariuon:
    Gwoooo---!

    Karl:
    Bariuon!

    Bariuon:
    Don't come near me!
    Ggh... My power... so you aimed for this instant...
    that my power... is at its weakest...
    How impertinent...
    What are you... going to do... with... my power...

    Mora:
    I don't owe you an explanation.
    And it's not just your power which I have obtained.

    Bariuon:
    I see... In the end, you still are...
    someone who... has that accursed blood... running through you...
    I hope you fail miserably... just like your parents...

    Mora:
    So noisy...
    Just please go down already.

    Bariuon:
    Gwaaaaaaaa--!

    Karl:
    Bariuon--!
    Mora, why you!

    Mora:
    I can understand your anger, but I have no intention of fighting you right now.
    I still have a lot of things to do, you know.
    If you've got something to say, then I will wait for you in Estoria.
    The land where a huge demon force once existed...

    Seria:
    Mora, wait!
    What are you up to!?

    Mora:

    …………

    Vanishes

    Lugina:
    We shouldn't go after her right now.
    You guys understand, but we won't even be able to fight her properly in our current conditions.

    Karl:
    Bariuon!
    Get a hold of yourself!

    Bariuon:
    Guh... Don't make that pitiful look...
    My power was stolen... and I just can't move right now...

    Riomerg:
    Lord Bariuon!
    This is!?
    It looks like Mora was here...
    Master Karl!
    Why didn't you prevent Mora from doing this!

    Bariuon:
    Be silent... Riomerg...
    This result is due to my weakness...

    Riomerg:
    Please don't strain yourself!
    I shall take you to a safe place immediately!
    After that, I will definitely get your power back from Mora!

    Karl:
    Will Bariuon's power return if we defeat Mora?

    Riomerg:
    ……Master Karl.
    I am disappointed in you.
    I no longer have expectations of you.
    I will defeat Mora.
    You can just go ahead and play with those human friends of yours!
    In the end, you're still a human!
    Lord Bariuon, let's go!


    Bariuon:

    …………


    Karl:

    …………


    Riomerg:
    Humans, don't get too cocky
    If only he didn't expend his power with the ceremony, then Lord Bariuon would never had been defeated by the mere likes of you.

    Seria:
    Karl……
    Eh!?

    Karl:
    Ghhhh……
    Ghhh……

    Paris:
    He returned to his original appearance?
    But why?

    Lugina:
    Most probably because he used up all his demon powers in that attack he did a while back. That attack which he aimed at his father.

    Seria:
    Lugina!

    Karl:
    It's alright Seria...
    It's exactly as he said...

    Lugina:
    Keh, so what are you gonna do now?
    You're back to human, so are you gonna cut ties with him and just let Mora be?

    Karl:
    That won't be the case.
    Yeah, we can't just leave things like this...

    Seria:
    Karl……

    Karl:
    {Summoner}, everyone, sorry
    but could we please go to Estoria together?

    Seria:
    That's so distant of you!
    Of course we will!

    Paris:
    Yes, and we still haven't settled the score yet with Mora anyway.

    Lugina:
    I'll make an exception and go with you.
    You should express your gratitude towards my kindness.

    Karl:
    Yeah, thanks all of you...
    Looks like I still have a long way to go huh.
    I have to be more serious and ponder over my thoughts.
    I've been halfhearted in everything which led to this result.
    I really have to take after Paris-san's seriousness.

    Paris:
    M, mine?

    Karl:
    Yes, to have a dilemma and really think over things until the end, come to a result and move forward.
    It's all common sense, but it's not something that can easily be done you know.


    Paris:
    Was that how I was viewed?

    Seria:
    Paris, didn't I tell you that you were thinking way too much.
    You're still doing your deed properly, you know!


    Lugina:
    Keh, that's why you're such a pain in the ass.
    It seems like you've got your guard down all the time,
    yet you tighten up everything when push comes to shove.

    Paris:
    Everyone... Thank you...

    …………

    I've made up my mind.
    Once I save Miss Tilith, I'll return to the Empire.

    Seria:
    Eh!?
    How did it turn out that way!

    Paris:
    While everyone was going down their own paths, I was honestly confused.
    The summoner hall is indeed a splendid organization, and I feel at home there, but changing the ways of the empire from the outside can be done by anyone.
    Changing it from the inside, however, can only be done by me.
    There was a time when I despised the fact that I was born in elite aristocracy, but it just so happens that there are things that can only be done in that position.
    I have come to a conclusion after hearing Karl out, and after all of you talked to me.
    I will change the empire from within.
    However, I will not rely on force like what Master Eriole did.
    I will look for a way where not a drop of blood will be shed, and will definitely make it a reality, no matter how tough that path may be...
    I will continue suffering, and continue thinking, but I will keep on moving forward.
    That is the path that I believe in.

    Seria:
    I'm happy for you Paris. It looks like you've finally come to terms with your true feelings.
    You're just so smart, that you were even lying to yourself.

    Paris:
    That might have been true...

    Karl:
    Well, whatever the case is, let's all head towards Estoria!
    We'll just decide what to do with Karna Masta after that.
    Let's go, before Riomerg-san gets to Mora.

    Seria:
    Your'e right.
    I'd like to talk to her one more time.
    The look on Mora's face right before she left... that was...

    Paris:
    {Summoner}, our journey together has helped changed me.
    I'm sure that there will be more times where I will get cot confused again, but allow me to rely on you a little, ok?

    Lugina:
    Hmph, looks like everything up to this point is just as Bertz has expected.
    The road to Menon will surely open up as long as Mora keeps on obtaining the powers of the demons.
    I'm also worried about what that bastard Ark is up to, but when that time comes, I'll leave it up to {Summoner}.
    Will the elders open the path first? Or will it be us......?
    Whatever the case, I will be the one taking the icing on the cake.
    Hmph, then I'll just let you keep on dancing,
    all you summoners cursed by god.

    Ex Open - The power of the Demon of the Seal
    The shadow of Karon, one of Karna Masta's seals approves
    of the summoner and Lugina's strength and accepts their challenge.


    [​IMG]
    -The sealed dragon's trench-

    [​IMG]
    Karon:
    You again...
    Why do you want to release Karna Masta's true seal so badly?

    ???:
    Why? Well, because this guy's a fool.

    Lugina:
    He's a fool, so if there's something dangerous right there in front of his eyes,
    then he'll try to do something about it by himself.
    I'm guessing that to him, this seal is nothing more than
    "something dangerous when ignored so I have to do something about it""

    Karon:
    ……Then I advice that you stop.
    Your strength is still no match for him.

    Lugina:
    Then what if I lend him a hand?
    Hey {Summoner}.
    Don't tell me you thought that the power I've shown you in Fal Nerga was everything I've got?
    I've been hiding it since I didn't want people talking about it, but now that the secret's out in the open, it can't be helped.
    I will now unwillingly unleash the Veda style of fencing which I have learned and show it to you!

    Karon:
    ……It looks like things are different now.
    Not just because he has joined you, but there is a change in your strength as well...
    Then I shall retaliate with my all. Behold! Defender of the seal Karon's true power...

    Lugina:
    Tsch, so he's also been hiding his strength.
    Very well.
    Let's go {Summoner}!
    Don't drag me down, now!
    Ex Clear 1/2 - In order to clear all doubts
    Paris appears in front of Lugina and the summoner.
    Paris challenges summoner to a duel to clear her doubts.


    [​IMG]
    -The sealed dragon's trench-

    Karon:
    I see.
    Lugina.
    So this is the person that you spoke of when you visited the cave of seals alone.

    Lugina:
    Wha, {Summoner}!
    I never spoke of anything!

    Karon:
    That man named Ark still had doubts.
    But it seems like you are moving forward.
    Very well.
    I shall see how things go for the time being.
    Even if you break the other seals, you still will not be able to unleash the true seal unless you defeat me...

    Lugina:
    Tsch, so it's still no use huh.
    What a pain in the ass.
    Hey {Summoner}!
    How's that, what do you think about my true strength?
    You're allowed to respect me more than you have, you know.
    A lot of things have happened ever since I joined the Summoner Hall, but I am definitely stronger now compared to that time.
    I can even utilize this Veda style much better now compared to the time when I didn't even want to use it when I left the Federation.
    Man, I'm getting the chills!
    Just how much stronger can I get!?
    So don't slack off and follow me, you hear?
    There's still a ton of things that I'll have you do for me!

    .......

    And that's it from me, but what about you?

    ???:
    So you noticed me.
    Ugh, what a jerk...

    Paris:
    I'm sorry, {Summoner}.
    I had no intention of peeping, but I just wanted to talk to you alone...

    Lugina:
    Heh, looks like you''re gonna be talking about some troublesome shit again.
    {Summoner}, I'm off!
    Look after that woman properly, you hear!
    I don't want things getting complicated later on!

    Paris:
    He's really a jerk...
    But I can understand why the elders have held him in high regard.
    I was always aware of his resourcefulness, but I can't believe that he was that adept with the sword...
    With the way I am now, I won't stand a chance against him.
    Even I can tell that.
    I'll never say that in front of him, even if it kills me, though...

    Say, {Summoner}.
    I said a while back that I came here because I wanted to talk alone with you.
    Can you hear out what I have to say?

    ......

    Fufu, you were never the type to refuse anyway.

    ......

    I... I have always...
    Since before...
    I have wanted to fight you and defeat you!
    After my defeat to you in Grand Gaia, I was able to take a look at myself again.
    And then I left the empire and joined the Summoner Hall.
    And now, I have also decided to leave the Summoner Hall.
    But I still can't say that all my worries have disappeared.
    That's why I would like to fight you again now and once again, take a look at myself.
    You would understand my feelings, right?
    Well then, here I go.
    Please do not hold back.
    I have gotten over a huge wall, and I do believe that I've gotten stronger myself!
    Ex Clear 2/2 - Paris' gratitude
    It seems that the battle with the summoner has cleared Paris' head.
    She declares that she we will walk down the path together with summoner.


    [​IMG]
    -The sealed dragon's trench-

    Paris:
    Thank you {Summoner}……
    You are indeed strong.
    Not just mentally, but spiritually too.
    Fufu, I kinda feel refreshed♪
    Considering I just lost to you, isn't that weird?
    Maybe I should ask you to do this again whenever I feel troubled.
    Fufu, just kidding.
    Let's go.
    There are a lot of others who are waiting for you and your strength!

    Paris:
    Ah, but {Summoner}, I just want you to know this.
    Whenever you're in doubt, I will always be there to your aid.
    Because you're such an important person to me.
    ......
    Ah, I'm sorry!
    There's no deep meaning to that!
    It's just that you're really someone important to me!
    Oh my, I wonder what Seria would say if she witnessed this...
    Let's get out of here!
    If we stay any longer here, then that would cast more suspicion over us.

    …………

    But {Summoner}.
    Please do remember that I will always be there to help you.
    I'm sure that I will be much stronger by the time you need me compared to now.
    Because I have decided to keep on struggling through my troubles and grow out of it.

    Haha, I've been doing the past few maps now so I'll do this too, don't worry :p

    Will be editing this post. Will try to finish within the day since it looks like a lean day at work ;p
    EDIT: argh, font formats aren't copied when I paste them here ;p
    EDIT 2: looks like this is going to take another day to finish, something just came up at work :p
    EDIT 3: Main story line done. Doing the EX dungeon and fluff stuff next.

    Opening

    {Summoner}……
    I have opened up the path to Fal Nerga.

    ……{Summoner}
    I am sensing a mysterious power from this area.
    It's something that's supposed to be so tremendous, so powerful, and so frightening
    yet, for some reason, it feels so familiar.....


    I am sure that of all people, you {Summoner} would know what this means.
    I may not be able to help but I have faith in you...


    Because after all, {Summoner} is still my precious summoner
    ……


    Paris:

    …………


    …………

    Ah!
    P, pardon me.
    I was just thinking about something...
    Oh no, I'm fine.
    Don't worry about it.
    Okay, let's do this again.
    {Summoner}, I've been waiting for you.
    Various myths and lore concerning dragons have been left behind in this land of Fal Nerga.
    I think we can assume that the demon who rules this land is somewhat related to dragons, but still nothing is certain at this point.
    What I can say is that we're definitely nearing the end of our Ishgria crusade.
    We have also made progress with the demons that we are supposed to slay.
    There's the threat of Karna Masta to worry about, but let's first aim to rescue Miss Tilith.
    The present me can only say this much for certain...
    I, I'm sorry...
    Don't mind me, it's nothing really.
    Let's get going, Seria is waiting for us up ahead.​

    Part 1 1/2

    -Placeholder 1-
    [​IMG]

    Paris:
    Sorry to keep you waiting Seria.

    Seria:
    ……Paris, is there something that has been bothering you?

    Paris:
    Eh!? Wh, what's this about all of a sudden?

    Seria:
    Mmhn, I just thought that you didn't seem like your normal self.
    Maybe it's just me?

    Paris:
    Y, yes, I'm perfectly fine.

    Seria:
    Is that so? I actually thought that you were obsessing about what Am=Yunos told you.

    Paris:

    …………

    Seria, you amaze me at how sharp you can be at times.
    Well, I guess it's no use keeping it from you.
    Yes, it's just as you said.
    What Am=Yunos said has been bothering me,
    when she told me "Are your thoughts being swayed once again?"

    Seria:
    Ok, so what's the deal?
    Are you being swayed?

    Paris:
    No, I have been acting according to my own will.
    It was my will to join the Summoner Hall, it was also of my own will to come to this land to save Miss Tilith.

    Seria:
    Then there shouldn't be any cause for concern, right?

    Paris:
    Yes, but Am=Yunos singled me out and told me that I was the only one who lacked resolve.
    That is the truth, and after hearing that, I did feel like I was lacking something when I tried comparing myself to you guys.

    Seria:
    So something is missing......

    Paris:
    Yes, and I was thinking about what that was...

    Eerie sounding voice:
    All this chattering nonsense while in enemy territory......
    Humans really are so trivial.

    Seria:
    Who's there!?

    [​IMG]
    Dragon-type Demon:
    I am Riomerg, the dragon who serves under the ruler of this land,
    "Shining Dragon Lord Bariuon"

    Riomerg:
    You foolish humans.
    I shall not let you advance further!​

    Part 1 2/2

    -Placeholder 1-
    [​IMG]

    Riomerg:
    I see. So it does seem that you are worthy enough to be in this region.

    Seria:
    Hey what's with you, attacking us all of a sudden!
    Are you also plotting to invade Grand Gaia and Elgaia?

    Riomerg
    Hmph, rubbish.
    My lord has no interest in such things.
    He just wishes for this land to return to the way it was.
    And my duty is to destroy anyone who gets in the way.

    Paris:
    Are you saying that we're getting in his way?

    Riomerg:
    I am aware that you are trying to eliminate the demonic threats throughout Ishgria.
    I am also aware that you have already succeeded in defeating a number of demons for that purpose.
    You will definitely be getting in the way of my lord if I just let you do as you please,
    especially that summoner over there who goes by the name of {Summoner}.
    I have heard of the threat that you possess.
    Let me just tell you this first before you go on your troublesome rampage.
    My lord Bariuon is conducting a certain ceremony at Sacred Mt. Nerga.
    If you are going to get in his way, then I will not hold back on you the next time that we meet.
    Even if you're Master Karl's friend.

    Seria:
    Hold it right there!
    You know about Karl!?

    Paris:
    He's gone...

    Seria:
    What does he mean by "Master" Karl!
    {Summoner}!
    Have you heard anything from Karl about that Dragon-head?

    Paris:
    Dragon-head... That's... so literal...
    But {Summoner},
    you really don't know huh?

    Seria:
    Whatever.
    At least we now know where we're supposed to be headed.

    Paris:
    Yes, you're right.
    The Sacred Mt. Nerga.
    I'm sure that we'll get more information once we get there.

    Seria:
    C'mon {Summoner}, let's get a move on!
    Someone weird will bound to show up again if we keep on lingering at the same spot!

    Paris:
    Yes, just thinking about who might show up next is giving me the creeps...
    Let's hurry up to the next place...

    Part 2

    -Placeholder 2-
    [​IMG]

    Paris:
    An underwater city....
    I wonder what sort of history this place has...

    Seria:
    Uh, Paris... I thought you were having a dilemma about something?

    Paris:
    Ah, well, you can say that this has become a habit of mine....
    B, but doesn't it pique your curiosity?
    You know, the reason why a city like this is no longer in existence?

    ???:
    The Aquatic Dragon City of Trave. This city was destroyed by Karna Masta.

    Seria:
    Karl!

    Karl:
    Yo.

    Seria:
    Don't "Yo" us!
    We didn't get to have a good talk with you back then because of Bertz, but you owe us all an explanation this time, got that!

    Karl:
    Haha, please go easy on me.
    But then again, I too would like to talk about a few things today.
    Can I discuss those first?

    Paris:
    !?

    Seria:
    *Sigh* fine.
    Go ahead and talk.
    In exchange, you better answer all my questions properly afterwards!

    Karl:
    Yes, I promise.
    So about this city...

    Paris:
    You mentioned that Karna Masta was behind the destruction of the city,
    what do you mean by that?

    Karl:
    C, calm down Paris.

    Paris:
    Oh, I, I'm sorry...

    Karl:
    Uhhh, let's see, demons who had the blood of aquatic dragons and the like used to reside in this city.

    Seria:
    Demons who had the blood of water dragons?

    Karl:
    Yes, demons like Riomerg-san.
    You've already met him, right?

    Paris:
    Yes, I wouldn't say it was a pleasant encounter, though...

    Karl:
    ……Yeah, I think I can imagine how that one went.
    Uhm, sorry about that, I guess...
    But you know, he's actually quite a caring demon!
    Oh, but Riomerg-san is of a fire dragon descent, not a water dragon.

    Seria:
    Whatever, I don't care.
    So you're saying that there was a lot of his kin here back then, huh?

    Karl:
    Correct.
    Since you already fought against him, you now have an idea but each and every single one of his kin was pretty strong.

    Paris:
    Just thinking about an entire group of them where every single one is at that level is terrifying...

    Karl:
    Yeah. It also seemed like that faction was considered a huge force even here in Ishgria.
    However, they never left this land because they had no desire to rule over other lands.

    …………

    But even all of them were destroyed in an instant by the hands of Karna Masta who fell down from Grand Gaia...

    Paris:
    I can't believe it...
    Are you saying that is how powerful Karna Masta is?

    Karl:
    Yeah, even I couldn't believe it at first.
    Even Riomerg-san was quite strong by himself.
    And despite having an entire group of demons at his level, I heard that it was a quite a lopsided defeat.

    Paris:
    …………


    Karl:
    {Summoner},
    it's a fact that you have defeated the god Lucius.
    However, it's also a fact that he has already lost his power then.
    After talking to the demons in this land, I came to know about the true strength and terror that gods possess.
    The heroes that we are summoning at our disposal---
    Even those heroes stood no chance against these gods.
    Isn't it that we have become too overconfident and have overestimated our abilities?
    So let's just revive Karna Masta, kill him and obtain true peace and freedom once and for all.
    Don't you think that's too conceited?
    Look, even all the powerful demons in this land fear him.
    I for one, cannot take him lightly at all

    Seria:
    It's not like we're underestimating him!
    But we can't save Tilith if we don't do that!

    Karl:
    No, she can still be saved.

    Seria:
    What do you mean!?

    Karl:
    Tilith can't budge because she's preventing the demons of this land from entering Grand Gaia, correct?

    Seria:
    Yes, that is correct.

    Karl:
    Then all we have to do is to not make these demons go to Grand Gaia.

    Seria:
    That's what I'm telling you, we have no means of doing that and that's why we're here!
    And we also don't know who or when someone is going to release Karna Masta's seal!

    Karl:
    I won't let that happen.

    Seria:
    You're not making any sense! How!?

    Karl:
    The ruler of this land Bariuon and his subordinates will rise and unify Ishgria.

    Seria:
    Eh!?
    Is such a thing even possible?
    But how?

    Karl:
    I'll make him do it.
    I'll show you.
    I, the son of the demon Bariuon.

    Seria:
    The demon Bariuon is Karl's father!?

    Karl:
    Yes, you even heard it from Bertz, right?
    That the blood of the demon who rules this land runs inside of me.

    Paris:
    So you're not a descendant from many generations down, but you're actually a direct relative?

    Karl:
    Yes, apparently so.

    Seria:
    But Karl, you never showed any signs of such in the past...
    Then who is your mother!?

    Karl:
    I have not been told about my mother.
    But I have the feeling that she's human.
    Well, how could I assume the form of a human in the first place if she wasn't, right?

    Seria:
    Karl...

    Karl:
    So that's how it is, and I'm against to what you're doing.
    Yeah, I don't agree with the Akras Summoner Hall who are trying to defeat Karna Masta.

    Paris:
    …………


    Karl:
    That's all I have to say.
    Well Seria, please do ask me your questions now.

    Seria:
    Nevermind.
    Everything I wanted to know was already in you story, Karl.

    Karl:
    I see.
    Then I'll be going now.
    The next time we meet, I will be your enemy.
    I will have to prevent you from fulfilling you mission,
    as the son of the demon Bariuon.

    Seria:
    Karl...

    Karl:
    C'mon Seria, don't make that face.
    This is the path that I have chosen.
    And you know, I'm quite happy right now,
    especially about the fact that {Summoner} hasn't changed at all even after hearing my story.

    Seria:
    It's just that this guy's dense.

    Karl:
    Haha, could be so.
    But {Summoner}, you still consider me as your best friend, right?
    That's why I can fight you, while still regarding you as my best friend.
    ......Haha, that's kinda complicated.

    Seria:
    Yep, such a complicated relationship.

    Karl:
    Haha, Seria's so mean as usual.
    I'm sure that all of you will keep on advancing.
    That will mean that you will be fighting against Riomerg-san and myself.
    But hear out my only wish.
    DON'T DIE. No matter what.

    …………

    See you.

    Seria:
    That's so unreasonable of him...
    We also wish you the same, you know...
    {Summoner}, Paris, let's go!
    Now that it's come to this, we'll have to convince Karl by force!

    Paris:
    The path that I have chosen...
    The reason why I chose this path...
    The thing that I truly want to do...

    Part 3

    -Placeholder 3-
    [​IMG]

    Mora:
    I've been waiting for you...

    Seria:
    Mora!
    ...Rather... What's with that wound?

    Mora:
    Please do not mind me...
    I was just fighting against a troublesome opponent...

    Seria:
    ……Is that so.
    Then I won't ask about who your opponent was.
    So, why were you waiting for us?

    Mora:
    I thought I'd tell you about the demon who governs this land.

    Seria:
    If you're just going to tell us that he's actually Karl's father, then we already heard about that from Karl himself.

    Mora:
    Fufufu, is that so.
    Then Seria.
    What are you going to do about that?
    Karl who was once your comrade has decided to align himself with his father,
    a path that differs from the one you take.

    Seria:
    What else can we do?
    We'll just have to convince Karl when he appears before us again.
    If he's going to use force against us then we'll just return the favor.

    Mora:
    Fufufu, you never change.
    You just run straight towards the path that you have chosen.
    That may seem simple, but it's actually quite difficult to achieve.

    Seria:
    Even I had dilemmas all the time in the past.
    It's just that a lot of things happened, and I decided to stop worrying about every single thing so much.
    The reason why I'm here right now is because of my comrades.
    That's why if Karl is trouble, then I'll save him
    And I'll also save Tilith.
    That's all there is to it.

    …………

    W, well, even {Summoner} over here did prove somewhat useful
    so I'll save him too if he needs it, maybe, probably.

    Mora:
    Comrades helping one another...
    Fufufu, I guess that is the strength that you weak humans possess.
    But don't you think that there's a comrade who's dragging you down from the path that you are taking?
    For example.... that half-baked woman over there who is still undecided on her thoughts...

    Paris:

    Ugh...

    Seria:
    I won't deny that Paris is currently at the crossroads which makes her a nuisance at times.

    Paris:
    Seria!?

    Seria:
    But what's wrong with that?
    Anyone can have a dilemma at any given time.
    It's just that Paris has that dilemma "now".
    Once she gets over it, then I'm absolutely sure that she'll show us her power that will go beyond your wildest dreams.
    I know Paris' strengths and weaknesses...
    I'm not her comrade who has fought alongside her for nothing, you know.

    Paris:

    Seria...


    Mora:

    …………


    Seria:
    {Summoner}!
    Why don't you say something too!
    I mean, you're the one who's being saved by Paris the most you know!

    Paris:
    Fufu, Seria, {Summoner}
    Thank you...

    Mora:
    Fufufu, that's right.
    Of course you'd say that, Seria.
    Then I shall proceed on my own path.
    Let me just give you one piece of advice.
    The strength of Shining Dragon Lord Bariuon who rules this land is on an entirely different dimension from the demons that you have fought up to now.
    But because of that, he also used up a large portion of his power to seal Karna Masta.
    I have no idea of how much power he has remaining, but do you really think that Karl can just forsake his father in this weakened state?
    And what about you, will you really be able to fight Karl who is in this predicament?
    I will be looking forward to the outcome of this path that you have chosen...

    Seria:
    Don't look forward to it.
    I only do what I can at any given time...
    ……Paris, {Summoner},
    let's go!
    At whatever rate, we also have to talk to the father and not just Karl himself!

    Paris:
    Thank you Seria……
    But still, I……

    Part 4

    [​IMG]

    Paris:

    …………


    Seria:
    ……Paris, you're still worried about what Mora just said?

    Paris:
    Yes, even when you said all those things, it's still a fact that I'm still confused and I'm also worried that I'll be a burden to you at some point because of this...
    Will I be okay at this rate?...

    Seria:
    Sigh. Paris, you really are such an intelligent fool.
    Even if you were to drag us down in the future,
    above all of that, you have always, and still are, a huge help to us.

    Paris:
    But I'm scared that things will be too late when it happens...

    Seria:
    Argghhh--- you really are so stupid!
    What I'm saying is that we'll be in trouble if we don't have Paris with us!
    If you've got all the time to think about such petty things, then let's hurry up and save Tilith!
    See what you've done {Summoner}!
    You're not following me up properly here, and that's why Paris is confused!
    I'll be going ahead, so make sure to cheer Paris up!

    Paris:

    …………

    I guess that's just really like her to try and cheer me up like that.
    It really makes me happy.
    But still, I'm not like her...
    I'm sorry {Summoner}.
    I'm well aware that now is not the time for this...
    I joined the Summoner Hall in order to change the Randall Empire as an outsider.
    And I am now in Ishgria in order to save Miss Tilith.
    I believe that I will be fighting against Karna Masta for people to obtain peace.
    I'm fine with that.
    But after that, I...
    I'm sorry.
    I never once thought that defeating Karna Masta would be easy.
    I am also aware that we should be concentrating on that right now.
    But still.. I...
    I'm sorry.
    {Summoner}.
    I've been doing nothing but apologize to you...
    It looks like my own weaknesses just come out naturally while I'm talking to you.
    It's like I'm just depending on you too much.
    I have to pull myself together!
    Alright, let's go forward!
    Seria's waiting for us.


    Grahdens:
    It seems that Paris is having a dilemma.

    Owen:
    Hmph, pondering over such a trifle thing,
    That's why even demons are making fun of her.

    Grahdens:
    Don't say that.
    She will definitely play an important role in Elgaia from here on.
    We have to let her experience all these troubles and pain right now for the sake of her own growth.
    I am sure that the experience that she has garnered from her journey with {Summoner}, Karl and Seria will benefit her in the future.

    Owen:
    Grahdens.
    You're mean as always.

    Grahdens:
    I don't want to hear that from you...
    Anyway.
    We are done here. The path leading to Menon will open up soon.
    We'll just have to do what we're supposed to do now.

    Owen:
    That has been my original intent.
    I just accompanied you with your peeping habits this time.
    Come to think of it, this habit of yours caused us in the past to...

    Grahdens:
    Owen, just leave it at that!
    Let's hurry forward!

    Owen:
    Hmph, not just the young ones, but it looks like even us elders haven't changed our old ways...​

    Part 5 1/2

    -Placeholder 5-
    [​IMG]

    Paris:
    This place is...
    I can see traces that this place has been inhabited until very recently, but I wonder if this is the place where the fire dragon-type demons Karl mentioned used to reside in?

    Seria:
    Which means that there's a chance the dragon-head from a while will show up here?

    Paris:
    I don't know.
    According to the Summoner Hall's investigations, there are still settlements of small races scattered throughout Ishgria but there were no reports of cities this huge in existence.


    ???:
    Yeah, correct.
    You can say that this is the only city left in Ishgria right now.


    Seria:
    Karl!

    Karl:
    {Summoner},
    so you've finally come all the way here.
    This is the city where the fire dragon-type demons reside,
    "The Light dragon town of Shin".
    But we have made all the residents evacuate and take shelter so they won't have to be caught up in the battle that's about to take place here.

    Seria:
    Karl, what do you mean?

    Karl:
    Just as I told you at the Water Dragon town of Trave,
    the next time we meet, I'll be your enemy.

    Seria:
    Karl……

    [​IMG]
    Karl:
    C'mon Seria please don't make that face.
    I was actually looking forward to this time when I can go all out against {Summoner}!
    I'll show you the proof that the blood of the demon Bariuon runs through my veins!

    Appearance change
    {Back and forth}


    Ghh ghhh....
    GWOAAAAAHH!!
    Haaa, haaa, haaa, haaa...
    How about it? I'm sure that you guys can give your all when I'm looking like this, right?

    Seria:
    Karl, stop all this nonsense.
    No matter how you look, I won't be able to go all out on you.

    [​IMG]
    Karl:
    Seria...

    Paris:
    I'm on the same boat as Seria here.

    Karl:
    Paris……

    Seria:
    And to tell you the truth, I'm a bit disappointed since you look so much more normal than what I've imagined.
    Take a look at {Summoner}'s face.
    It looks so stupid! It's saying "That's it?"

    Karl:
    {Summoner}……
    B, but I……
    Gh…Gwaaa……

    Seria:
    Karl, what's the matter!?

    Karl:
    Guhhhh……

    ???:
    You look so pitiful, Master Karl.

    Karl:
    Riomerg-san……

    Riomerg:
    That's what you get for trying to use a demon's power with such a half-hearted resolve.
    Lord Bariuon will be saddened when he sees that appearance.

    Karl:
    He... has... nothing... to do... with this...

    Riomerg:
    Whatever.
    Let us first get out of here.

    Seria:
    Where are you planning to go to!

    Riomerg:
    Silence!
    I will just have to take Master Karl to a place far away from you.
    It seems that Master Karl's demonic blood isn't stable and he cannot fully awaken when he's near you.

    Paris:
    Stable?
    But if it stabilizes, then Karl will...

    Karl:
    Don't worry.. about.. it... Paris.
    This is... the path... I chose.

    Paris:
    The path... you chose...

    Riomerg:
    Master Karl, let us go.

    Seria:
    Do you think we'll let you get away!?

    Riomerg:
    Do you still intend to make Master Karl suffer further??

    Seria:
    Uggh……

    Riomerg:
    Don't worry. I'll be your opponent once Master Karl calms down.

    Karl:
    Rio... Merg-san...

    Riomerg:
    Summoners!
    I shall wait for you in the depths of this Light Dragon town!
    I shall defeat you and put an end to Master Karl's suffering!

    …………

    Master Karl, I shall show you how to use your power.
    Yes, the power of demons.

    Karl:
    Ggh... I'm sorry everyone...

    Paris:
    They're gone...
    {Summoner}, Seria, what should we do?

    Seria:
    What else can we do.
    Just like what that dragon-head said, we're heading towards the end of this city!
    And then we'll teach him who the real nuisance to Karl is!
    Sorry Paris but I won't be able to deal with your troubles for a while.
    The utmost priority right now is to smash that dragon-head!


    Paris:
    Fufu, you're right.
    I'll forget about my troubles for now.
    Karl looked like he was in pain, and there's just no way I can leave him like that.
    Ah, {Summoner}, wait!
    I understand that you want to make haste,
    but we all feel the same way.

    Seria:
    Hmph, he just always dilly-dallies along but it's nice to see him looking enthusiastic for a change.
    Then let's go!
    This time, we're going to change Karl's feelings for sure!

    Part 5 2/2

    -Placeholder 5-
    [​IMG]

    Riomerg:
    Very well. I shall acknowledge your strength.
    And I would like to apologize for looking down on you.

    Seria:
    Haa, haa, haa...
    So what are you gonna do after apologizing?

    Riomerg:
    I shall now go all out on you.

    Seria:
    I kinda knew that's how it would go...
    {Summoner}, Paris,
    We're going into round 2, you guys ready?

    Paris:
    Yes, no problems here.

    Karl:
    Riomerg-san...
    That's enough...

    Riomerg:

    …………


    Seria:
    Karl, are you alright?

    Karl:
    Yeah. I just showed a lame side of me.
    More importantly...
    Riomerg-san.
    Thank you for fighting for my sake.
    But it's alright.
    This is my fight.
    So please withdraw from this.

    Riomerg:
    ……Understood.
    If Master Karl insists, then I shall step away.
    But if you insist on taking these people to Lord Bariuon then I will not hold back, even against you Master Karl.

    Karl:
    I know.
    I personally don't want to interfere with what he and you are trying to do.

    Riomerg:
    I will put my faith in those words.

    Karl:
    Phew, sorry everyone.
    I was trying to act cool when I was challenging you guys but look at me...

    Seria:
    Forget about that.
    So what are you going to do?
    Are you really going to fight us?

    Karl:
    No, I'll pass this time.
    I shouldn't have bothered challenging you when I clearly did not have a full resolve.

    Paris:

    …………


    Seria:
    So does this mean that you're going to reconsider everything?
    I don't think that Karl's the type who'd change his mind so easily, though.

    Karl:
    Haha, as expected of Seria.
    I'm glad that you understand me quite well.

    Seria:
    You shouldn't be saying things like that.
    There are people who get the wrong idea here and it'd just be a pain.
    So what are you going to do?
    You won't change your mind, but you won't fight us.
    Isn't that just selfishness?

    Karl:
    Uhmmm, about that.
    First, I want everyone to know about the ceremony that Bariuon is about to perform at the Sacred Mt. Nerga.

    Paris:
    Come to think of it, Riomerg also mentioned something about a ceremony.
    Karl, tell me, what sort of ceremony is this?
    What are the demons of this land trying to do?

    Karl:
    ……If this ceremony succeeds, Karna Masta will be returned to his original world.

    Seria:
    Eh, what do you mean?

    Paris:
    Are they trying to open the gate?

    Karl
    Yeah.

    Seria:
    But isn't Tilith the only one who can do that right now?

    Karl:
    Yes, apart from accidental occurrences, Tilith is the only one who possesses the power to open the gate at her will.
    But it seems that you can open the gate, albeit with limitations, once you fulfill a a few complicated conditions.


    Paris:
    Now that you mention it, there have been numerous accounts of the gate being opened throughout history...

    Karl:
    Seeing how a demon with such massive power can barely manage to open it kinda implies that it's not something that can be done so simply, though.

    Seria:
    But if Karna Masta is returned to the world of the gods, then won't that actually cause a bigger problem?

    Karl:
    I honestly do not know.

    Seria:
    Then!

    Karl:
    But think about this.
    Karna Masta used to belong to that world.
    He was a nuisance there so he was exiled here,
    but what about the inhabitants of Ishgria?
    Don't you think that it's a problem for them as well?

    Paris:
    But what if he is returned to the world of the gods and he recovers to full strength.
    Won't that be more dangerous to the entire world?

    Karl:
    Then that will be the time we truly fight for freedom.
    Whatever the case, there's no need for that battle to take place here, right?
    If Tilith lends us her power, then we can go to a different world that will be able to take all the damage become the battlefield, right?

    Paris:
    You may have a point, but...

    Karl:
    And if that happens, then I'm sure that the demons of this land will cooperate with us.
    The inhabitants here know about Karna Masta's threat the most.

    Seria:
    ……Karl, do you really think things will pan out conveniently just like that?

    Karl:

    …………


    Seria:
    I've come to understand something after fighting all of those demons here in Ishgria.
    The demons will not cooperate once Karna Masta disappears from this world.
    They only cooperated with one another before because their world was on the brink of destruction.
    I'm sure the whatever happens to the god's world, Grand Gaia or Elgaia is of no concern to these demons.

    Karl:

    …………


    Seria
    Karl, can you tell me what you really feel?
    You've been acting weird ever since we came here.
    You kept on saying that you're taking your own path,
    yet your actions have been indecisive.
    Karl, aren't you actually having a dilemma?

    Karl:
    Seria……

    Seria:
    Could it be that something really important to you has started to waver your thoughts now that you've met your true father?
    Karl, what is that you really want to protect?
    Karl, what is the thing that's truly important to you?
    Please tell me that.
    And don't make sugar-coated excuses.

    Karl:
    Seria... I...

    Seria:
    AHHHHH ------- I feel so much better now!

    Karl:
    Seria?

    Seria:
    I was finally able to convey my true feelings to you, Karl!
    I've always felt uneasy since we met you again here in Ishgria.
    It felt like I was being dragged along everyone else's pace, and I was just on the receiving end of conversations, not being able to say stuff.
    Everything was just so confusing, to the point where I even lost track of what I really wanted to say but I was able to sum up my feelings thanks to Paris.

    Paris:
    Eh, me?

    Seria:
    Yes.
    Paris, you've been thinking about a lot of things, right?

    Paris:
    Y, yes……

    Seria:
    So I imitated you and I stared pondering over a lot of things as well.
    Why couldn't I talk properly to Karl whenever I'd meet him?
    What is that I really want to say?
    That's why I was able to say all of this thanks to Paris.
    Thanks ♪


    Paris:
    Seria……

    Karl:
    Haha, I really don't stand a chance against you Seria.
    I'm sorry.
    I've been acting tough all this time but truth is, I was also having a dilemma.
    And it was all concerning myself so I didn't want to bother you guys about it and tried to shoulder it all.
    But that isn't how things are done.
    If I had a dilemma, then I should've consulted it with you.
    I have you guys to talk to, after all.

    Seria:
    You really are an idiot, Karl.
    I can't believe you never realized something as obvious as that.

    Karl:
    Haha, you're right.
    {Summoner}, I'm sorry.
    You're my best friend, yet I never consulted you,
    shouldered all these thoughts and proceeded on my own.
    But worry no more.
    I'll be counting on you more from now on.
    I still haven't cleared up my dilemma, you know.

    Paris:
    Eh, is that so!?

    Seria:
    Duh, of course not.
    Karl only talked to us about what he was truly confused about.
    So Paris, please be at ease.
    No matter when, and no matter what the situation may be,
    we will always be your ally.

    Paris:
    Seria... Thank you...

    Karl:
    Alrighty, since that's that, I'll be going with you guys!
    Off to the Sacred Mt. Nerga we go!
    I'm going to let my dilemma be known to those actual people who are concerned!

    Seria:
    Yup, that's just like the good 'ol Karl we know, I guess.

    …………

    {Summoner}, good for you.
    Looks like you best friends won't be fighting one another for a while.


    Part 6 1/2

    [​IMG]

    Seria:
    Say, Karl.

    Karl:
    What's up?

    Seria:
    Can't you revert back to your old form again?

    Karl:
    Uhmmm, I wonder.
    Perhaps, if I can just control this power properly, but looks like that's impossible for me right now.
    And when I try to exert some strength, I actually feel like I'd lose control and run riot.
    I might actually be treading a fine line right now, you know.

    Seria:
    Sigh, and yet you're so upbeat when talking about it.
    So in other words, you're still having a dilemma, huh?

    Karl:
    Yeah, I'm still not fully sold on Granpa Grah's plans of releasing the seal and defeating him, let alone sending him back to his original world.
    But then again, keeping things the way they are also seems like we're just chickening out...

    Seria:
    So you really have no clue about what to do.

    Karl:
    Seems that way.

    Seria:
    Sigh. What about you Paris?

    Paris:
    Sorry.
    I still haven't summed up my thoughts yet...

    Seria:
    Is that so...
    I don't think Paris has to rush it but I hope you're not forgetting that we're in Ishgria now.

    Paris:
    Yes, I know that.

    Seria:
    And {Summoner},
    on the other hand, you should be thinking more!
    You absentmindedly waltz into things, which always puts you in deep doodoo, right!?

    Karl:
    Haha, I really missed this feeling.
    The only thing left is for Tilith to return and start arguing with Seria, then it would be perfect.


    Seria:
    Stop spewing nonsense, and let's get going!
    Our objective here has always been to save Tilith!

    Karl:
    Yeah, you're right.
    Seria, I'm really amazed by you.
    You're even prepared to go up against Karna Masta for that purpose.

    Seria:
    Wait Karl... are you making fun of me?

    Karl:
    Of course not.
    I was praising you.

    ???:
    My, my, but that "praise" wasn't done in good taste you see.

    [​IMG]
    Bertz:
    Greetings everyone, how are you today?

    Seria:
    How are we? I wasn't really feeling that bad, but now I feel awful after seeing you.

    Bertz:
    Hahaha, which means that I have quite a huge impression on Ms. Seria here for I am able to change her mood!
    I am most honored.

    Seria:

    …………

    Paris, you should learn from this guy's optimism.

    Paris:
    Y, yes...

    Bertz:
    Oh my, no, no, no--- I would rather for Ms. Paris to be deep in thought as she is much more alluring when she's slightly somber.

    Paris:
    Well, thank you...

    Karl:
    So what brings you here Bertz-san?

    Bertz:
    Oh my, if it isn't Mr. Karl!
    Long time no see!
    But anyway, what is going on with that appearance of yours!?

    Karl:
    You're obviously faking that.
    I don't even have to tell you about this, right?

    Bertz:
    Oh, I do have an idea about it.
    It's just that I wanted to hear it straight from Mr. Karl's mouth.

    ???:
    You still haven't gotten to the gist?
    This chatter is taking too long.

    Seria:
    Lugina!
    Where the heck have you been off to!
    And why in the world are you together with Bertz?

    Lugina:
    Keh, I'm not obligated to explain to you.

    Bertz:
    No, no, you should give a proper explanation!
    Even if you were acting as a spy, they're still your former comrades right?

    Paris:
    ……Is that true?

    Lugina:
    So what about it if it was?

    Bertz:
    Hahaha, Lugina, you seem to be having so much fun.

    Lugina:
    ...Karl.
    That's quite an enjoyable look you've got going on right there.
    It suits you well as it clearly reflects how filthy you are inside.

    Karl:
    Not bad, right?
    I actually don't mind it that much.


    Lugina:

    …………

    Keh, irritating as always, I see...
    But I didn't come here for you today.
    {Summoner}!
    It seems like those elder codgers coaxed you into fighting Karna Masta.
    I always thought you had a few screws loose in your noggin, but it seems like you've finally gone full retard!
    You're a fucking nuisance!
    You're off to revive a sleeping God of destruction?
    That's why I decided to align myself with the Elgaia Federation.
    It's much easier to fight against you blokes instead of going up against a Deity.
    If you still insist on advancing then it looks like I'll be your opponent.
    And unlike before, I don't have to hide anything anymore, so I'll show you my true swordfighting skills.


    Bertz:
    And that's how it is. We from the federation are against the revival of Karna Masta.
    If any one of you happens to have the same opinion then you are free to join our side anytime.
    Most especially Ms. Seria, I shall welcome you with open arms ♪


    Seria:
    As usual, they just say whatever they want and then disappear.
    Oh whatever.
    Let's not bother about it and just keep on pressing forward.

    Paris:
    But what are we going to do about Lugina?

    Seria:
    Nothing.
    If he gets in the way then we'll just have to smash his head in.

    Karl:
    That's right.
    I'm getting the impression that he's also plotting something.

    Paris:
    Whatever that is he's plotting, I hope it's something decent...
    What about you Karl?
    Weren't you talking about something with Bertz before?

    Karl:
    Yeah, he fed me a lot of unnecessary info rather one-sidedly.
    Well, thanks to that, I was able to meet Bariuon, but it also led to me having a dilemma, and look at me now.
    So don't mind me.
    Anyway, {Summoner}, be on your toes.
    I'm sure that Lugina is itching to have a go with you.

    Seria:
    Sigh. Boys are such a hassle.
    Whatever.
    I'll root for you just this time so do whatever it takes to smash Lugi-kun inside out.
    I have no clue as to what he's thinking, but we still have to punish him for making us even remotely worried for a while.
    Alright, let's go!


    Paris:
    Oh, so Seria was actually a bit worried about him...


    Part 6 2/2

    -Placeholder 6-
    [​IMG]

    Lugina:
    I guess that'll do.
    Hey Bertz.
    I told you, these guys just won't stop.
    And what's troublesome is that he may be a fool, but he's pretty damn strong.

    Bertz:
    Oh my, is that so...
    Then what do we do?

    Lugina:
    I'll be going together with them.
    I'll make my detailed report once everything has been settled, so make sure to prepare a hefty reward for me.

    Bertz:
    Hahaha, fine, I get it.
    I'll make sure to prepare something that will completely satisfy you.

    Lugina:
    And another thing,
    don't ever get in my way again.
    Got that?

    Bertz:
    Roger that.
    But have I ever gotten in your way in the first place, even once?

    Lugina:
    Too many times for me to remember every goddamn single one of them.

    Bertz:
    Aww, that's so harsh.
    Well then everyone, once again, please do take care of my best friend here.
    I shall be leaving Fal Nerga, so Ms. Seria, 'til the day we meet again.

    Seria:
    W, wait a sec!
    Don't go on leaving behind weird things!

    Lugina:
    Who are you calling weird!

    Seria:
    Who else but you!
    YOU!
    The nerve of you to come along with us again like it was nothing?
    Who gave you approval to do so!?

    Lugina:
    Hah, I'm saying that I'll be lending you my strength.
    Go on, don't be shy and thank me.

    Seria:
    Are you even listening to me?
    You moron!

    Lugina:
    Blah, blah, so noisy!
    No one gives a rat's ass about your opinion!
    Karl, {Summoner}!
    You must've had a hard time without me around, eh?
    I can imagine that you weren't able to defeat the enemies that you were supposed to be beating with this nincompoop of a woman and this gloomy girl here.

    Seria:
    Youuuuu----!

    Karl:
    Haha, both of you, give it a rest already.
    I'm actually enjoying this exchange again as I've missed it, but our priority right now is to move forward, right?
    But there's no question that having Lugina around is a huge boost to us.

    Seria:
    Well, I won't deny that...
    But still, he suddenly pops up with that jerk then picks a fight with us,
    and now that the fight's over, he's all familiar with us again.
    Don't you find that creepy!
    And look, it even seemed that Bertz didn't even give a damn about Lugina leaving him!
    Isn't it that this guy's really just an Elgaia spy!?

    Karl:
    Even so, that wouldn't be a problem.
    Actually, having him together with us allows us to monitor his actions properly making things actually easier, right?

    Paris:
    You've got a point……

    Karl:
    And I believe that Bertz already knows everything as he's taking action.
    Lugina, could it be that Bertz actually has his sights set at something totally different from all of this?

    Lugina:
    Could be.
    But like I said before, stop falling for everything he says.
    If you worry about it for even a bit, then you lose.

    Karl:
    Haha, that makes sense.
    I mean, just look at me now.

    Seria:
    That may be so, but...

    Lugina:
    Anyway, let's keep going forward.
    If we don't hurry, then that bastard Ark will release Karna Masta's seal.

    Seria:
    Wait, why are you taking command!
    And what is Ark doing?
    Have you got in contact with Ark here!?
    Wait up!

    Karl:
    Uhnnn, so lively as usual.
    {Summoner}, Paris, let's get going too.

    Paris:
    Fufu, it's really been a while since all of us got together like this.
    This actually eases things up for me since I don't have to do much of the talking now.
    Well, let's go {Summoner}.

    Bertz:
    Well then, this now drives Bariuon-san into a corner.
    And if "she" makes her move at that time, then all the conditions will come into place.
    I'm sure that Lugina, Summoner Karl and Ms. Paris will all be acting as expected, but I'm really worried about Ms. Seria and {Summoner}...
    Those 2 always make me nervous...
    Please make the proper moves this time.

    Part 7

    -Placeholder 7-
    [​IMG]

    Paris:
    So this is the Sacred Mt. Nerga......
    It has quite an atmosphere.

    Karl:
    Yeah, I heard that the power of all the dragons who ruled this land throughout history rests here.

    Paris:
    So they're planning to use that power to open the gate, huh.

    ???:
    Yes, and that is why I cannot allow you to advance any further.

    Karl:
    Riomerg-san!

    Riomerg:
    Master Karl, as I thought, you did join their group.

    Karl:
    No, please listen!
    I want to speak with everyone!
    And I want to find a different method that all of you would approve!

    Enormous voice:
    Blasphemy.
    That is in fact what someone who lives in a different world would say.

    -Appears-

    Riomerg:
    Lord Bariuon!

    Seria:
    Th, this is Karl's dad?

    Lugina:
    Keh, he's got quite the daunting presence unlike his son...

    [​IMG]
    Bariuon:
    ...Hmph.
    Riomerg, the ceremony is about to commence.
    Start ensuring the security of the surroundings.
    There is a far greater threat compared to these imbeciles.

    Riomerg:
    B, but Lord Bariuon...

    Karl:
    Please listen to me!

    Bariuon:
    My ears are shut to someone who could not even control his demonic power properly.
    If you want to say something to me, then get it across with your might.
    Did I not tell you that this is the absolute way in these lands?
    Blood relations are of no meaning.
    I am the mightiest in this land.
    And I shall do as I please.
    I will make this ceremony a success, and send Karna Masta back to the world of the gods.

    Karl:
    W, wait!

    -Vanish-

    Riomerg:
    Master Karl, as I said earlier, I won't be going easy this time.
    I shall not let you pass and intrude the ceremonial grounds!

    Karl:
    Riomerg-san!

    Karl:
    Ugh...

    Lugina:
    Looks like we're in for good times now.
    Right, "Master Karl"?!

    Seria:
    My goodness, you're really rotten to the core...

    Lugina:
    Hah, I thought you were that spoiled goody-two-shoes honor student, but look at his dysfunctional family!
    Go on, spit it out! Yeah, that's right, that dark and filthy feeling inside of you!

    Karl:

    …………

    Haha, sorry Lugina but I'm done with that phase.
    All I have to do now is to face everything head on.
    {Summoner}, you heard what Bariuon said, right?
    If you want to say something, say it with your might.
    This just means that we have to defeat him ourselves.
    At least it isn't complicated or anything, right?

    Seria:
    Karl, are you really fine with that?

    Karl:
    Yeah, I don't mind it at all.
    Rather, I actually want to ask for your help.
    I don't think that I alone can beat him.

    Paris:
    I understand how you feel...
    That daunting presence he had, I now know why Mora said that his strength is on a different dimension.

    Lugina:
    Tsch, what a pain in the ass but we've got no choice.
    {Summoner}, the enemy is your best friend's old man.
    You should fight him properly, got that!

    Seria:
    Oh I see Lugina, you're trying to slack off huh by passing responsibility.

    Karl:
    Haha, {Summoner},
    I'm also looking forward to your exploits.
    Well then, let's go.
    Show that hardheaded guy that power of yours that defeated Lucius!


    Ending

    -Placeholder 7-
    [​IMG]

    Bariuon:
    Hmph, that's quite impressive for a human to go this far against me.

    Seria:
    Haa, haa, haa...
    Looks like we made it in time...

    Lugina:
    {Summoner}!
    There you go again, doing as you please!

    Paris:
    We had no other choice.
    {Summoner} moving independently at that time was the correct decision.

    Lugina:
    Shut up!
    I know that!

    Karl:
    ……{Summoner},
    Bariuon.

    Bariuon:

    …………


    Karl:
    Bariuon, please listen to me.

    Bariuon:
    Did I not tell you to show me your strength?
    You have not shown me anything.
    It was this summoner here who displayed his mettle.

    Karl:
    Ugh……

    Bariuon:
    But if you cannot even control that demon power of yours then I'm sure that your strength does not amount to much.

    Karl:
    Then... Then I'll show you...
    My power!
    This is my power!

    Bariuon:
    Gwo...
    Th, this strength...
    Are you telling me...
    That you have full control of your demon power?

    Karl:
    Ugh...

    Seria:
    Karl!

    ???:
    It looks like he was only able to control his power for a moment because of his heightened emotions.

    Seria:
    Mora!

    Mora:
    Shining Dragon Lord Bariuon, I shall make use of that enormous power of yours.

    Bariuon:
    Gwoooo---!

    Karl:
    Bariuon!

    Bariuon:
    Don't come near me!
    Ggh... My power... so you aimed for this instant...
    that my power... is at its weakest...
    How impertinent...
    What are you... going to do... with... my power...

    Mora:
    I don't owe you an explanation.
    And it's not just your power which I have obtained.

    Bariuon:
    I see... In the end, you still are...
    someone who... has that accursed blood... running through you...
    I hope you fail miserably... just like your parents...

    Mora:
    So noisy...
    Just please go down already.

    Bariuon:
    Gwaaaaaaaa--!

    Karl:
    Bariuon--!
    Mora, why you!

    Mora:
    I can understand your anger, but I have no intention of fighting you right now.
    I still have a lot of things to do, you know.
    If you've got something to say, then I will wait for you in Estoria.
    The land where a huge demon force once existed...

    Seria:
    Mora, wait!
    What are you up to!?

    Mora:

    …………

    Vanishes

    Lugina:
    We shouldn't go after her right now.
    You guys understand, but we won't even be able to fight her properly in our current conditions.

    Karl:
    Bariuon!
    Get a hold of yourself!

    Bariuon:
    Guh... Don't make that pitiful look...
    My power was stolen... and I just can't move right now...

    Riomerg:
    Lord Bariuon!
    This is!?
    It looks like Mora was here...
    Master Karl!
    Why didn't you prevent Mora from doing this!

    Bariuon:
    Be silent... Riomerg...
    This result is due to my weakness...

    Riomerg:
    Please don't strain yourself!
    I shall take you to a safe place immediately!
    After that, I will definitely get your power back from Mora!

    Karl:
    Will Bariuon's power return if we defeat Mora?

    Riomerg:
    ……Master Karl.
    I am disappointed in you.
    I no longer have expectations of you.
    I will defeat Mora.
    You can just go ahead and play with those human friends of yours!
    In the end, you're still a human!
    Lord Bariuon, let's go!


    Bariuon:

    …………


    Karl:

    …………


    Riomerg:
    Humans, don't get too cocky
    If only he didn't expend his power with the ceremony, then Lord Bariuon would never had been defeated by the mere likes of you.

    Seria:
    Karl……
    Eh!?

    Karl:
    Ghhhh……
    Ghhh……

    Paris:
    He returned to his original appearance?
    But why?

    Lugina:
    Most probably because he used up all his demon powers in that attack he did a while back. That attack which he aimed at his father.

    Seria:
    Lugina!

    Karl:
    It's alright Seria...
    It's exactly as he said...

    Lugina:
    Keh, so what are you gonna do now?
    You're back to human, so are you gonna cut ties with him and just let Mora be?

    Karl:
    That won't be the case.
    Yeah, we can't just leave things like this...

    Seria:
    Karl……

    Karl:
    {Summoner}, everyone, sorry
    but could we please go to Estoria together?

    Seria:
    That's so distant of you!
    Of course we will!

    Paris:
    Yes, and we still haven't settled the score yet with Mora anyway.

    Lugina:
    I'll make an exception and go with you.
    You should express your gratitude towards my kindness.

    Karl:
    Yeah, thanks all of you...
    Looks like I still have a long way to go huh.
    I have to be more serious and ponder over my thoughts.
    I've been halfhearted in everything which led to this result.
    I really have to take after Paris-san's seriousness.

    Paris:
    M, mine?

    Karl:
    Yes, to have a dilemma and really think over things until the end, come to a result and move forward.
    It's all common sense, but it's not something that can easily be done you know.


    Paris:
    Was that how I was viewed?

    Seria:
    Paris, didn't I tell you that you were thinking way too much.
    You're still doing your deed properly, you know!


    Lugina:
    Keh, that's why you're such a pain in the ass.
    It seems like you've got your guard down all the time,
    yet you tighten up everything when push comes to shove.

    Paris:
    Everyone... Thank you...

    …………

    I've made up my mind.
    Once I save Miss Tilith, I'll return to the Empire.

    Seria:
    Eh!?
    How did it turn out that way!

    Paris:
    While everyone was going down their own paths, I was honestly confused.
    The summoner hall is indeed a splendid organization, and I feel at home there, but changing the ways of the empire from the outside can be done by anyone.
    Changing it from the inside, however, can only be done by me.
    There was a time when I despised the fact that I was born in elite aristocracy, but it just so happens that there are things that can only be done in that position.
    I have come to a conclusion after hearing Karl out, and after all of you talked to me.
    I will change the empire from within.
    However, I will not rely on force like what Master Eriole did.
    I will look for a way where not a drop of blood will be shed, and will definitely make it a reality, no matter how tough that path may be...
    I will continue suffering, and continue thinking, but I will keep on moving forward.
    That is the path that I believe in.

    Seria:
    I'm happy for you Paris. It looks like you've finally come to terms with your true feelings.
    You're just so smart, that you were even lying to yourself.

    Paris:
    That might have been true...

    Karl:
    Well, whatever the case is, let's all head towards Estoria!
    We'll just decide what to do with Karna Masta after that.
    Let's go, before Riomerg-san gets to Mora.

    Seria:
    Your'e right.
    I'd like to talk to her one more time.
    The look on Mora's face right before she left... that was...

    Paris:
    {Summoner}, our journey together has helped changed me.
    I'm sure that there will be more times where I will get cot confused again, but allow me to rely on you a little, ok?

    Lugina:
    Hmph, looks like everything up to this point is just as Bertz has expected.
    The road to Menon will surely open up as long as Mora keeps on obtaining the powers of the demons.
    I'm also worried about what that bastard Ark is up to, but when that time comes, I'll leave it up to {Summoner}.
    Will the elders open the path first? Or will it be us......?
    Whatever the case, I will be the one taking the icing on the cake.
    Hmph, then I'll just let you keep on dancing,
    all you summoners cursed by god.

    I'll reformat it afterwards.
    Or you could use this instead: http://pastebin.com/Q1HngMSk

    Going to add some "fluff stuff" now that all the files are loaded.
    {Zone info yada yada}

    Will add them to this post to make it easier.

    General info:
    イシュグリア西部に位置する地域。竜の力を持つ魔神が治めているという。古代竜に関する様々な伝説が記された文献もこの地で見つかっている。

    Zones Info: {Places}

    豪炎竜の咆哮
    水竜都トレーヴ
    イレーシア平原
    マハラーダ砦
    光竜都シン
    神喰蜘蛛の巣
    霊峰ナーガ
    封竜の海溝
    Map info:

    竜が棲む地
    ティリスの力でファル・ナーガに到達した召喚師たち。しかし、パリスは何か悩んでいることがあるようだが……。

    不足するもの
    【豪炎竜の咆哮】素直に悩みを打ち明けるパリス。自身に不足しているものが何なのか、パリスは考え続けているようだ。

    竜徒の警告
    【豪炎竜の咆哮】襲い掛かってきたのはこの地を支配する魔神の配下のようだ。彼は主の邪魔をするなと警告して去ってゆく。

    カルの目的
    【水竜都トレーヴ】カルはこの地を支配する魔神バリュオンの息子として、自身が成そうとしていることを召喚師に語る。

    モーラの決意
    【イレーシア平原】召喚師一行の前に現れたモーラは、セリアの言葉から何かを感じ取り、自らの進む道を選び取ったようだ。

    パリスの悩み
    【マハラーダ砦】セリアの励ましを受けてなお悩むパリスは、召喚師に胸の内を明かすが、まだ迷いがあるようだ。

    魔神の力の解放
    【光竜都シン】召喚師と戦うために力を解放するカル。しかし、迷いが残っているためか、それは中途半端な覚醒だった。

    再びカルとともに
    【光竜都シン】自分の迷いを認めたカルは召喚師と戦うことをやめた。今後の行動を決めるため、ともに霊峰ナーガへ向かう。

    ルジーナの剣技
    【神喰蜘蛛の巣】ベルツとルジーナが現れカルナ・マスタ復活の危険性を説く。ルジーナは召喚師と戦いたいようだが……。

    見えない思惑
    【神喰蜘蛛の巣】召喚師の力を再確認したルジーナはカルナ・マスタ復活の阻止を諦め、再び召喚師と同行することに決める。

    魔神の流儀
    【霊峰ナーガ】父親を説得しようとするカルだったが、バリュオンは魔神ならば力で示せと言って相手にしようとはしない。

    謀略の始まり
    【霊峰ナーガ】バリュオンとの戦いの中、突如現れたモーラはその力を取り込んでしまう。彼女が一行に向けた言葉とは?
    EX Info:

    封魔導神の力
    【封竜の海溝】カルナ・マスタを封印する魔神の一柱カロンの影は、召喚師とルジーナの力を認めて戦いに応じる。

    迷いを振り払うために
    【封竜の海溝】ルジーナと話す召喚師の前にパリスが現れる。パリスは迷いを振り払うために召喚師との戦いを望む。

    パリスの感謝
    【封竜の海溝】召喚師との戦いはパリスの心の迷いを晴らしたようだ。これからも召喚師と共に歩んでいくことを告げる。


    As usual, no rush.
