 ====================           Introduction          ========================
 =============================================================================

This guide was written for those who wish to enjoy the story of 
Dissidia: Final Fantasy but don't know how to read or understand Japanese. It
was also written because I was sick and tired of seeing God-awful translation 
attempts in the forums and people saying there is no character development or 
the Dissidia's story is shallow even though no one understood it. Geez, 
people, how about actually finding out what it is before criticizing it? 
Anyways, this is my first FAQ so my format is ugly and I'm not a hundred 
percent sure what should be included. If you have any suggestions on what I 
should translate, spot any errors, or have any tips as to how to improve the 
FAQ, e-mail me in the address found above. Make sure to include "Dissidia" in 
the subject or I'll delete it. (No, I will not translate game mechanics like 
accessory rise conditions or summon properties. Story and flavor text only.)

Reasons to send me an e-mail:

*You've spotted a translation error, grammatical error, or typo.

*You have constructive criticism or a suggestion for a change in the FAQ.

*You want to contribute to the FAQ.

*You want permission to put this FAQ up somewhere other than GameFaqs or wish
to use these translations in their subs.

*You want to give me praise! =D

 =============================================================================
 ====================                Notes	        ======================
 =============================================================================

*I opted to keep character names in their given romanization in Dissidia.


*Entire lines surrounded by quotes are thoughts, just like in-game.

*Text in parenthesis represents text that isn't subtitled. Usually laughs or
small side dialogue (Cefca has a lot of these).

*The following characters have accents and speech patterns that should be
taken note of:

Cloud: Uses idioms. A ton of them.

Tidus: Talks like a surfer (Dude!). He also has these monologues like he did
in his own game, so whenever you see a long chain of "thought" dialogue, note
that it's supposed to be reminiscent of his game.

The Emperor: Extremely formal. It's to the point where he calls his enemies
"gentlemen" and "sirs".

Cloud of Darkness: Talks like an old woman/witch.

Exdeath: Uses the kanji for "nothing" a lot. Thus he says words like 
"meaningless" and "futile" and "useless" a lot. You know, because of his
whole obsession with the Void.

Cefca: Talks like a crazy man.

Sephiroth: Talks in a very sophisticated manner, like a know-it-all bookworm,

Kuja: Uses a lot of theatre and music metaphors.

Jecht: Talks like a gangster/biker.

I included English equivalent idioms for Cloud and tried to convey the subtle 
differences in speech patterns that each character possesses, but whether or
not I've been successful is up to you.

*I have made the following abbreviations in the script:

Warrior of Light --> WoL
Onion Knight --> OK
Cloud of Darkness --> CoD

 |DESTINY ODYSSEY 001							     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

*Scene opens on a border between Cosmos' world and Chaos' world, where both
armies are standing off.*

Cid: The Goddess of Harmony, Cosmos, and the God of Discord, Chaos.

Cid: These two gods reigned in a far-off dimension and summoned warriors 
from many different worlds and commanded them to fight a fierce battle.

Cid: Cosmos and Chaos were equal in power.

Cid: Their conflict was supposed to continue for all eternity. However...

*The forces of Cosmos and the forces of Chaos clash in an epic battle.*

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|
 |DESTINY ODYSSEY 002							     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

*Scene opens on WoL as he regains consciousness and gets up off the floor. He
then hears Cosmos' voice.*

Cosmos: I have been defeated.

WoL: Cosmos!

Cosmos: I... couldn't protect this world.

*WoL sees a pillar of light in the distance and begins walking towards it.*

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|
 |PROLOGUE							 	     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

*Scene opens on WoL after regaining consciousness.*

WoL: Cosmos... Cosmos?

Cosmos: I'm glad... You're all right.

WoL: Cosmos, where exactly is this place? This world...

Cosmos: I... was defeated by the overwhelming power of discord earlier.

Cosmos: This is what the world where all of you were has become. Everything 
has been crushed by despair.

Cosmos: At this rate, it is only a matter of tim before the world and I sink 
into the darkness...

WoL: Ugh... Is there no way to save you... or the world?

Cosmos: ...There is one way.

Cosmos: Can you see the black mark in front of you? That is the God of 
Discord, Chaos' [Stigma of Discord].

Cosmos: If you shatter that stigma... the path forward will reveal itself.

WoL: The path forward? Cosmos, what exactly is that...?

Cosmos: First, destroy that stigma... That is the first step in driving back 
this despair.

Cosmos: If you do not fear what the future holds and break that stigma, a new 
world will open up before you.

Cosmos: On your path, you will probably encounter despair. Nevertheless, you 
must continue...

WoL: You don't need to worry, Cosmos.

WoL: Even if I are injured or defeated, I will never lose the light within 
me...!

*WoL destroys the Stigma of Discord. Scene changes.*

Cosmos: When the stage begins, you're given a set number of movement points 
(DP) located at the top left of your screen: [Destiny Points]
These are a product of the power of harmony that protect you from the 
discord...

WoL: I feel a warm light. Could this be...?

Cosmos: Yes, this is the last of my power remaining in this world... Please 
use this power to carve your fate.

Cosmos: If you destroy that mark, the remaining power will help you by 
becoming another power that will take on a different shape.

WoL: Another power...?

Cosmos: You will understand in due time. For now, please concentrate on 
continuing forward.

Cosmos: Shatter that stigma and expand the world... and save the world from 
this despair...

*WoL encounters and defeats an Imitation.*

WoL: He looked exactly like me. What exactly was my enemy just now...?

Cosmos: An Imitation... They are imitation life forms that accompany Chaos' 
troops.

Cosmos: You will face a countless number of Imitations. But do not be afraid.

WoL: Yeah, I am prepared to cross swords. These low-level imitations... are 
not my enemy.

*WoL proceeds to destroy another Stigma of Discord.*

WoL: There are two enemies...

Cosmos: Be careful... If you challenge an enemy, all other enemies nearby will 
sense your presence and ambush you.

WoL: A succession of battles...? I should proceed with caution then.

Cosmos: If it's the current you, you'll be all right. Because you have 
captured this space, a chance has appeared.

WoL: Yeah, I can fight without expending a Destiny Point.

*WoL proceeds to destroy another Stigma of Discord. Scene changes.*

Cosmos: If you defeat this Imitation, my power will be able to return to these 
untamed lands a little.

Cosmos: From now on, you must continue on your own with what you have learned.

Cosmos: You are a Warrior of Light. Never forget that... No matter what kind 
of hardships lie ahead... There will always be a way...

Cosmos: And there is always your own brilliance... If you do not give up... A 
way will definitely...

WoL: Cosmos... Cosmos...!?

WoL: Ugh... If I don't hurry...

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|
 |DESTINY ODYSSEY 003							     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

*Scene opens on WoL who sees a faint glow and a figure in the distance, and 
he runs towards it, arriving at Cosmos' throne.*

WoL: Cosmos!

Cosmos: I... have been defeated by Chaos.

Cosmos: The God of Discord, Chaos.

Cosmos: In his rage, he tore apart all harmony...

Cosmos: And the world has lost its original shape.

*Cosmos projects holograms to the other heroes, who were scattered by 
the battle. Scene switches to Zidane and Butz.*

Cosmos: Everything is sinking into a vortex of discord.

Cosmos: The ten of you are this world's last hope.

Cosmos: So please obtain them.

*Scene switches to Frioniel, Cecil, Cloud, and Tidus.*

Cosmos: Even though the world is broken, they haven't lost the brilliance 
of their light...

Cosmos: The crystals.

*Scene switches to Tina and OK.*

Cosmos: The crystals have the power to oppose the despair.

Cosmos: If the ten crystals can be collected, then there is still hope to 
save this world.

Cosmos: The path to the crystals is a difficult one...

Cosmos: Everyone's struggles will differ.

*Scene switches to Squall.*

Cosmos: Believe in your own path, and continue down it, no matter what.

Cosmos: Even if your destination is unclear...

Squall: No problem.

Squall: I already follow my own path.

*Scene switches to Zidane and Butz.*

Zidane: If the treasure was easy to find, it wouldn't be a treasure hunt.

Butz: This isn't a game, so don't have such a carefree attitude...

Butz: You have to enjoy yourself seriously.

*Scene switches to Tina and OK.*

OK: Cheer up. I'm with you.

OK: If you're scared, you can believe in me.

Tina: Then I'll be depending on you.

*Scene switches to Frioniel, Cecil, Cloud, and Tidus.*

Cecil: Perhaps each path to the crystals is different.

Cecil: But we have comrades.

Frioniel: If we combine our strengths, we have nothing to fear.

Cloud: Hmph. How naive.

Cloud: Chaos is in command. The troops of discord... They'll be coming 
after us.

Cloud: You must keep your guard up.

Tidus: The enemy is strong, but I'm totally getting fired up!

Cosmos: Thank you...

*Scene changes to WoL, who is kneeling in front of the real Cosmos.*

Cosmos: There is little left of this world. The rest has sunk into discord.

Cosmos: Until everyone finds the crystals, I cannot support you...

Cosmos: I'm sorry. I want to be with you...

Cosmos: But I need to rest a little...

WoL: Cosmos.

WoL: Your light is always with us.

*Cosmos vanishes and you see each respective group of heroes set off on 
their new mission.*

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|
 |DESTINY ODYSSEY 004							     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

*Scene opens on the villains' headquarters.*

Ultimecia: When the time comes, everything will fall into place.

Ultimecia: The final struggle...

The Emperor: And then the perfect ending.

The Emperor: If we seize the crystals...

The Emperor: Will it all go according to the goddess' plan? 

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|
 |D.O. I (PART 1)							     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

*Scene opens on Chaos and Garland have a discussion.*

Chaos: I am the God of Discord... Supreme ruler of all beings in this world... 
Correct?

Garland: Yes. To defeat Cosmos and have discord overtake this world... That is 
the duty given to us.

Chaos: Once I regain my lost power, this battle shall be over. Victory is only
a matter of time. 

Chaos: However... there is something... that's bothering me... Garland, what 
you said... Do you really believe it will come to pass?

Garland: ...Of course, Chaos.

*Scene switches to WoL on his journey.*

WoL: I sense the presence of evil... Do they plan to impede my path?

*WoL destroys the Stigma of Discord.*

WoL: Now, I must hurry ahead. At this rate, Cosmos will...

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|
 |DESTINY ODYSSEY 005							     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

*Scene opens on the WoL traveling as he remembers Cosmos' words."

Cosmos: "Please obtain them."

Cosmos: "Even though the world is broken, they haven't lost the brilliance of 
their light. The crystals."

WoL: Cosmos...

WoL: As per your wish, we will definitely

WoL: obtain the crystals. The hope of the world...

*Garland approaches from off-screen,*

Garland: And where do you think you're off to?

WoL: Garland!

Garland: Do you intend to retreat from the battle?

WoL: I don't intend on retreating from anything.

Garland: Then let us begin it.

Garland: The moment of fate is nigh...

Garland: Why don't we just enjoy ourselves for now?

*WoL and Garland begin their fight.*

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|
 |DESTINY ODYSSEY 006							     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

*Scene opens on Tina and OK traveling.*

OK: The crystals... They have the power to break through the despair, huh?

OK: I wonder what they are exactly.

Tina: I wonder how we're supposed to look for them.

Tina: Even if we find them, if the world can't be saved...

OK: The goddess spoke very highly of them, didn't she?

OK: Even though there is no assurance that Cosmos' words are true, we have no 
way of knowing that they are false.

OK: In any case, we can do nothing but believe in them for now, right?

OK: Let's just try doing what we can first.

Tina: Yeah, you're right.

OK: If we just stand around, we won't find an answer. The first thing we need 
to do is keep moving.

OK: Don't worry.

OK: I'll definitely find the right answer.

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|
 |D.O. III (PART 1)							     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

*Scene opens on OK and Tina traveling.*

Tina: Look... Our path is obscured. Are there enemies lying in wait for us?
Or...

OK: It could be enemies or it could be treasure. We have no idea what's there, 
so let's proceed cautiously.

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|
 |D.O. III (PART 2)							     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

*Scene opens on CoD conversing with Cefca.*

CoD: ...Do you really think we can use that girl?

Cefca: Of course! Her power is The. Real. Thing! 

CoD: ...If you hold her in such high regard, I shall believe you. Let me see
how useful she can truly be.

Cefca: Please do! Shall I demonstrate her power again like last time?

CoD: ...Last time?

Cefca: No, no, no, no! I TOTALLY said THIS time. Anyways, Here. We. Go!

*Scene switches to OK and Tina traveling.*

Tina: I sense the presence of many enemies here, as well. Will it be all 
right...?

OK: I'll observe the enemy before each fight. What kind of person he is and 
what equipment he is utilizing. 

OK: If he is weak with a sword, I'll fight him with a sword. If he is weak 
with magic, I'll fight him with magic.

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|
 |D.O. VII (PART 1)							     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

*Scene opens on Cefca conversing with The Emperor.*

The Emperor: ...What does he know? What is he after...?

Cefca: Don't worry about it. That guy is just a sadist who looks down on 
others.

The Emperor: Sephiroth... He took his own life. At the end of the last war,
right before my eyes...

Cefca: Seriously? What's the point of that?

The Emperor: He was probably testing something. If we do not move carefully...

*Scene switches to Cloud traveling.*

Cloud: Why...? I feel like something is calling me. Is it my crystal...? No,
it's something far more sinister...

*Cloud continues forward.*

Cloud: Are there are enemies everywhere...? Am I fated to continue fighting 
forever...?

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|
 |DESTINY ODYSSEY 007							     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

*Scene opens on Cloud, who is alone. Cecil, Frioniel, and Tidus come running 
towards him.*

Cecil: Well? Any sign of the crystals?

Cloud: No. None.

Tidus: So the crystals are the hope that can save this world, right?

Tidus: How are we supposed to, like, find them?

Frioniel: Don't we just keep on fighting?

Frioniel: If we defeat every enemy...

Cloud: We don't know anything beyond that. It's dangerous to fight so 
recklessly.

Cloud: No one can win every fight.

Tidus: So we should take a break from the fighting every once in awhile?

Frioniel: That definitely sounds good.

Cecil: Cloud sure is a big help. We could all learn from your calm assessment 
of the situation.

Tidus: We could all learn from Cecil, too!

Frioniel: Speak for yourself!

*Everyone except Cloud laughs.*

Frioniel: We aren't so bad ourselves.

*Cecil, Frioniel, and Tidus head off first.*

Cloud: "Calm?"

Cloud: "No, that's not it."

Cloud: "I'm definitely not..."

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|
 |D.O. VII (PART 2)							     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

*Scene opens on Cloud, Cecil, Tidus, and Frioniel traveling.*

Cecil: The enemy seems to be multiplying. We must conserve our strength...

Cloud: Study the enemy's movements carefully. They will definitely leave 
openings after they attack. These Imitations are not very strong. Don't get 
carried away by the heat of the battle.

Tidus: Got that, Frioniel?

Frioniel: Yeah... I'm envious of Cloud's composure.

Cloud: "...It's not composure. I'm... actually afraid right now."

*Cloud, Cecil, Tidus, and Frioniel continue forward.*

Tidus: Nice, Cloud... All right, wanna have a match?

Cloud: ...Please show some restraint.

 |DESTINY ODYSSEY 008							     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

*Scene opens on WoL and Garland after their battle. Garland is kneeling on 
the floor.*

Garland: You scoundrel, do you truly plan on saving this world?

WoL: That is our mission.

WoL: All hope has not yet been lost.

*Garland lets out a sinister laugh.*

Garland: How foolish.

Garland: The hope that you desire is an illusion.

Garland: To pursue that is to run away from the truth. Even if you reach it, 
there is no way to seize it.

WoL: What?

Garland: You'll learn the truth of this battle eventually.

*Garland begins fading.*

Garland: This world will betray you.

*Garland disappears with a sinister laugh.*

WoL: No matter what this world really is...

WoL: The light is with me.

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|
 |DESTINY ODYSSEY 009							     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

*Scene opens on Frioniel, Cecil, Cloud, and Tidus resting.*

Tidus: So, like, what are the "crystals"?

Cecil: Can you defeat Chaos by just having the crystals?

Frioniel: If it is Cosmos' wish, we need only fulfill it.

Cloud: What are we fighting for?

Frioniel: "What" you ask...? To defeat Chaos.

Frioniel: To restore peace to this world, right?

Cloud: The only thing Cosmos told us is to gather the crystals.

Cloud: If we defeat Chaos, there is no guarantee that peace will return.

Cloud: No one knows what will happen to this world.

Tidus: At any rate, we should have faith in her, dude!

Frioniel: Even if we don't know, either way, we have to fight for now, 
don't we?

Cloud: I... want to agree.

Cloud: But what are we fighting for? Right now, I don't see an answer either. 
And I don't want to just brush it off.

Frioniel: Cloud...

Cloud: What about you guys?

Cloud: Even in our current situation, I want to know your reason to fight, 
if you have one.

Cecil: A reason to fight... I haven't exactly thought about that before.

Tidus: I want to settle things with my old man!

Frioniel: Isn't that a bit self-centered?

Cloud: Tidus, that's a good reason.

Frioniel: Let me think about it a little bit, won't you?

Frioniel: I want to find an answer that you'll accept.

Cloud: Sure.

*Frioniel, Cecil, and Tidus head off first.*

Cloud: An answer...?

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

*Scene opens on Tina and OK traveling.*

Tina: Wait a second.

OK: What?

Tina: I'm getting a strange sensation...

Tina There's a strong feeling coming from that direction.

OK: Could it be... a crystal?

Tina: I don't know. All I know is it has a strong presence.

OK: Let's go check it out.

*OK begins to run until he notices that Tina isn't moving.*

OK: What's wrong?

Tina: My heart is unsettled for some reason...

Tina: I have a feeling we shouldn't approach it.

OK: Tina, we should probably look for any clue to the whereabouts of 
the crystals.

OK: It'll be okay. If it's an enemy, I'll handle it.

Tina: But...

OK: Chaos' underlings are strong. However, those guys only know how to 
break things.

OK: On the other hand, I...

*OK points to his head.*

OK: have this.

OK: Now, let's keep going.

*OK takes off before Tina, who hesitates before following.*

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|
 |D.O. III (PART 3)							     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

*Scene opens on OK and Tina traveling.*

Tina: Are we... really going to continue this way? The enemies also appear to
be stronger in this area, too...

OK: No need to worry, Tina. It would only be reckless if we just ran in, but
if we carefully study our enemies, we'll be able to find openings. 

OK: Imitations are very simple. If you fight intelligently, there's nothing 
to be afraid of.

Tina: ...You're so strong. I'm envious of your strength.

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|
 |DESTINY ODYSSEY 011							     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

*Scene opens up on Zidane and Butz running towards Squall.*

Zidane: You saved us! Thanks!

Butz: Hmm? Are you alone?

Squall: Yeah...

Butz: Then join us in our travels. We'll search for the crystals together!

*Zidane and Butz run ahead.*

Squall: "How did it become like this...?"

Squall: Sorry, you guys...

Squall: But it'll be easier if I'm on my own.

*Zidane and Butz stop in their tracks and exchange a glance.*

Zidane: Isn't being alone... lonely?

Butz: Well, I guess it's also fine to split up and search...

Butz: Then we'll go that way.

Zidane: We'll meet up again when we obtain the crystals!

*Zidane and Butz run off again. A minute later, Butz comes running back
to Squall.*

Butz: Ah, that's right...

Squall: What now?

Butz: Since we finally met up again.

*Butz produces a yellow feather and hands it to Squall.*

Butz: Take this with you!

Squall: What's with this filthy feather...?

Butz: "Filthy"...? That's a bit harsh.

Butz: This is my good luck charm.

Butz: This guy got me out of a lot of tight spots.

Squall: ...This is a battlefield. Do you really think such a trivial thing 
will decide people's fates?

Butz: I'm just worried about you.

Butz: I'll be fine because I'm with Zidane.

Butz: So just return it to me when we meet again!

*Butz puts the feather in Squall's hand.*

Butz: Promise!

*Butz then chases after Zidane again.*

Squall: "How presumptuous... A promise..."

Tidus: Oh! That's a lot of treasure, dude!

Cloud: Yeah, the leftover strength of the gods. We should obtain them.

Cecil: Let's not miss any treasure boxes.

Cloud: No, that's not the best idea. It's smarter to keep our eyes on the 
prize than to have our enemies snatch victory away from us.

Tidus: Right. Swinging that burdensome sword around more than you need to will 
only tire you out, dude.

Cloud: ...It's not a burden. It's a memento.

*Cloud, Cecil, Tidus, and Frioniel continue forward.*

Cloud: "If this war is supposed to drain our 'strength'... Then I already...
have nothing more to lose."

Cecil: ...Are you hurt, Cloud? Do you want to rest for a bit?

Frioniel: But putting it into words is pretty difficult.

Cloud: Is that so?

Frioniel: If I had one wish...

Frioniel: Then it would be this.

*Frioniel produces a wild rose in his hand.*

Cloud: What's that?

Frioniel: A "wild rose".

Frioniel: It's a sight I've always wanted to see.

Frioniel: For that, I want to end this fight.

Frioniel: Well, for now, we can only talk about our dreams.

Cloud: Dreams?

Frioniel: Yeah, we can't give up on our dreams.

Frioniel: Because of that, we can keep fighting.

Cloud: Frioniel...

Cloud: Will you fight with me?

Frioniel: Huh?

Cloud: I want to know.

Cloud: Can you continue fighting just because of that?

Cloud: Show me the strength of someone who believes in dreams so strongly.

*Exdeath emerges from the portal and takes a good look at Tina and OK.*

Exdeath: Cosmos' subordinates?

OK: "What's with this guy's presence...?"

OK: "Unfathomable power... I can't even compare!"

Exdeath: I leave to quench my boredom and I run into a girl and a child...

OK: "I have no chance of winning if I face him head on."

OK: "Tina is also here. For now..." 

OK: W-Would you please let us go?

Exdeath: What?

OK: The two of us couldn't possibly compare to your power. Even if you 
fought us, we wouldn't even help you alleviate any of your boredom.

OK: So, if you seek out other stronger opponents, you should be satisfied.

OK: If you were to pick on the helpless, you would be a coward.

OK: That's all I have to say.

Exdeath: Wouldn't letting powerless people go be just as meaningless?

*Exdeath laughs in amusement.*

Exdeath: All right. I'll overlook you guys.

*OK is visibly relieved.*

Exdeath: But, youngster,

*OK tenses up again.*

Exdeath: I'll only say this once:

Exdeath: A person who lacks courage is incapable of obtaining the crystals.

*Exdeath teleports away and OK lets out a sigh of relief.*

OK: Piece of cake.

OK: Even when you get stuck with someone like him, you have to find any 
way you can to escape.

OK: That's my policy for not fighting opponents I can't win against.

Tina: But, is it really all right?

OK: Is what "all right"?

Tina: It seemed like he let us go on purpose.

Tina: It seemed like he wanted to give you that piece of advice more than 
he wanted to fight.

OK: What he said about "a person who lacks courage"?

OK: Fighting a losing battle isn't courage. It's just reckless and futile.

Tina. I'm sorry. But...

OK: If it's like that, I'll obtain the crystal as proof.

OK: I'm not "a person who lacks courage".

OK: Let's go. Do you still sense that presence?

Tina: It's further up ahead.

OK: All right.

Cloud. Several of his other weapons are also floating near Cloud, ready to 
strike. Frioniel then lets them fall to the floor. Frioniel hangs his head in 
defeat, but Cloud walks over and offers him a hand.*

Cloud: It really is impressive.

Frioniel: Like I said. I won't give up...

Frioniel: On my dream...

*Frioniel accepts Cloud's hand.*

Cloud: Yeah. But...

Cloud: I'm not like you.

Frioniel: Why?

Cloud: Even though I've searched, I can't find one.

Cloud: I'm always wondering what I should do without a dream.

Exdeath: ...In the last war, she was indeed a great tool. However, this time, 
it is different. Even you can see the clear purpose she possesses this time,
can you not?

Cefca: ...So what?

Exdeath: Give it up. That girl is no longer a piece of Chaos. She is now an
established piece of Cosmos...

Cefca: ...Give it up? I will draw out that girl's power... And by doing so,

Cecil: That's just like Frioniel.

Cloud: He told you?

Cecil: He's a shy person, so it wasn't easy getting it out of him.

Cecil: He said, "If the wild rose can bloom forever, everyone will want to

Squall: I don't regret it at all.

Squall: However... Those guys are worried about me.

Squall: Their compassion is such a troublesome burden.

Squall: But I will become a useful rear guard and end up helping them.

Squall: Declining their invitation... might have been a bad idea.

Cosmos (Ultimecia): Not at all. Your decision was correct.

Cosmos (Ultimecia): The way to obtain the crystals is hidden in each of 
your hearts. You have to fight your true enemy.

Cosmos (Ultimecia): You must stand against your true enemy alone.

Squall: My true enemy... Her!?

Cosmos (Ultimecia): That's right... The time-manipulating sorceress, 
Ultimecia.

Cosmos (Ultimecia): If you defeat her, you will obtain your crystal.

Golbeza: She is merely unconscious.

Golbeza: She released too much power too suddenly.

OK: You...!

OK: I won't let you lay a finger on her!

Golbeza: Good decision. Protect her well.

OK: Huh?

Golbeza: That girl possesses tremendous power. So much that she 
herself fears it.

Golbeza: You must support her and protect her.

OK: T-That goes without saying!

Golbeza: That's right, huh? You've already decided to do so.

Golbeza: And the crystal lies in the brilliance of that determination.

*A crystal appears in the air in front of OK. OK grabs the crystal.*

OK: This is... my crystal.

Tina: Where am I?

OK: Tina.

OK: Everything's all right now. I'll be watching over you, so get some rest.

OK: I will protect you.

Garland: I'm not interested... Only lowlives would toy with people's hearts.

Ultimecia: What about Kuja? I thought he would be useful to us... until I told
him the truth. Right now, he seems to be plotting to capture the other monkey.

Garland: Such naive thinking. It will not play out like they think it will...

Ultimecia: At any rate, let us set out... The lone lion is wlaking into our
trap.

Garland: ...Am I to be a prisoner of these stupid plans again...?

*Scene switches to Zidane and Butz traveling.*

Zidane: Butz, if we aren't careful, we'll run right into a trap! If you only
focus on the enemy in front of you, who knows how far you'll get.

Butz: It's good to be a little hesitant, but aimless journeys are my 
specialty! As long as I keep cutting down anyone whoever gets in my way, I'll 
be fine!

Zidane: ...Is that guy gonna be all right?

Cefca: This is strange...

Cefca: I missed the monkey and accidentally caught an unneeded mouse instead?

Zidane: Huh?

Cefca: Well, that's fine. This makes things a little interesting.

Zidane: Hey! Is this your doing? Where did you send Butz!?

Cefca: (Tch!) Geez, you're annoying...!

Cefca: Shut up, monkey that the crocodile is unable to catch!

Sephiroth: Is the only one who can defeat me that guy after all?

WoL: What are you saying...?

Sephiroth: I have a query.

Sephiroth: Why do you wield a sword and fight?

WoL: To obtain the crystals and end the fighting.

Sephiroth: Fighting to stop the fighting...?

Sephiroth: How poetic.

Sephiroth: How long must the fighting pile up before we reach such 
a conclusion?

WoL: Though it is certainly far away, I will definitely reach it.

Sephiroth: No, you're wrong.

Sephiroth: There is no hope for the fighting to end.

Sephiroth: There are people like me who fight just for fun.

*Sephiroth produces Frioniel's rose in his hand.*

WoL: "A wild rose?"

WoL: "That was Frioniel's..."

Sephiroth: You are just like me.

Sephiroth: An appropriate existence in this closed-off world.

WoL: Closed-off world?

Sephiroth: It's here.

Sephiroth: It seems the time for me to fulfill my promise to him has come.

*Sephiroth teleports away.*

WoL: Did he run away?

WoL: "What does the enemy know about this world that I don't?"

WoL: "No. Even if I were to worry about it, there's nothing I can do."

WoL: "The only thing I can do now is to continue my search for the crystals."

Sephiroth: Why won't you fight me?

Cloud: What purpose does fighting you have?

Cloud: I do not wish to fight meaningless battles.

Sephiroth: Then if there is a purpose, you will fight anyone?

Cloud: You're wrong! I will only fight if it's for a reason I agree with.

Sephiroth: Just like a puppet.

Cloud: What?

Sephiroth: I shall bestow upon you a purpose.

*Sephiroth produces Frioniel's rose in his hand.*

Sephiroth: Plucking a dream is this easy.

WoL: Ultimecia...

Ultimecia: Where are you headed...? Perhaps...

Ultimecia: You're still searching for the crystals?

WoL: The crystals are our hope.

WoL: We have no intentions of stopping until we find them.

Ultimecia: How sad...

Ultimecia: Throwing your life away for Cosmos' fabrications.

Ultimecia: To sacrifice yourself for a thing like that is beyond stupid.

WoL: Are you done talking?

Ultimecia: What?

WoL: If you've finished your business, then feel free to take your leave.

Ultimecia: You don't know a thing, do you?

WoL: What?

Ultimecia: The others are suffering right now...

Ultimecia: They are losing sight of what they are fighting for. Can you really

Ultimecia: In realizing your own limits...

Ultimecia: There is only profoundly dark despair.

WoL: ...Cosmos did?

*Scene switches to Golbeza talking to Cosmos.*

Golbeza: In other words... you are aware of it?

Cosmos: Yes. I am also aware of the consequences... But as long as the 
Crystals have light, they will not disappear.

Golbeza: But this is such a dangerous gamble. No, rather... Is this the way a
goddess should behave?

Cosmos: ...

Golbeza: When the God of Discord or the Goddess of Harmony is defeated, the
dragon will descend and restart everything. 

Golbeza: The defeated god will revive, the soldiers will return, and... the 
war will begin anew. And the cycle... 

Golbeza: What you plan to do is only a temporary solution. If your last hope 
were to fail... Without the light, they would meet their true demise.

Cosmos: Their true demise... Are you saying they would be doomed to a fate of
eternal discord?

Golbeza: Yes... They would drown in an eternity of despair.

Cecil: "Jecht"... Right?

Tidus: I have NO connection with my old man.

Cloud: What?

Sephiroth: You're just drifting along, acting like you're searching for a 
reason to fight for...

Sephiroth: The reason you need to pursue a purpose is that you don't have 
one of your own.

Sephiroth: That's why you'll jump at any purpose people give you.

Cloud: What are you trying to say?

Sephiroth: The others possess a volition to keep searching for the crystals 
no matter what happens to them.

Sephiroth: But what about you?

Sephiroth: You have no resolve of your own. You're just a puppet whose only 
purpose is to be strung along.

Cloud: You're wrong. I'm...

screen.*

Jecht: Looks fun!

Jecht: I want in.

*Jecht joins the stand-off with his weapon drawn as well. Kuja hesitates and 
dispels his spell.

Kuja: I've lost interest.

The Emperor: Splendid work, Golbeza. But will he really take the bait?

Golbeza: No need to worry... He is a true brother. He would believe anything
I say.

The Emperor: Hmhm... I'm looking forward to your performance...

*Scene switches to Cecil, Frioniel, and Tidus traveling.*

Cecil: ...The secret of the crystals, huh?

Tidus: What's wrong? You don't look so good, dude.

Cecil: No... It's nothing. Let's hurry. The crystals are probably nearby.

Cecil: ...Should I believe in my brother?

Frioniel: Geez, there are a lot of enemies. How are you holding up, Cecil?

The Emperor: Chaso and Comos' pieces are not set in stone... That girl is a 
perfect example of this.

Garland: If we bring out her inner power... She will probably once again be a 
piece of Chaos'.

The Emperor: Don't make me laugh... She will become our tool again through his
schemes...?

Garland: His "schemes" are the same as your "plans"...

The Emperor: ...Hmph, they are not the same at all. They are on completely
different levels. My plans are full-proof... My plans for a new future.

Tina: Thank you for earlier.

OK: Huh?

Tina: For encouraging me.

Tina: To tell you the truth, I was a little scared.

Tina: While everyone's doing their best, I'm the only one incapable of 
doing anything.

Tina: To be frank, I would be helpless on my own. It's so frustrating.

Tina: I wonder if I'll change if I can obtain my crystal.

OK: That's wrong.

*OK produces his crystal.*

OK: You obtain your crystal when you change.

OK: A certain someone taught me that.

OK: He told me that "the crystal lies in the brilliance of your 
determination."

OK: That's why, as long as you follow your greatest desire, you'll be 
all right.

Tina: My greatest desire?

Tina: I don't know what that is yet.

*OK puts away his crystal.*

OK: Tina...

Tina: But I'll definitely try.

Tina: Just like you.

Tina: Even if I lose all hope, I will definitely continue on.

Jecht: And when that happens, will we really be able to return to our 
homeworlds?

The Emperor: We will be able to do anything we want...

Jecht: Can... my son come with me, as well?

The Emperor: Yes... I promise you.

*Scene switches to Tidus, Cecil, and Frioniel traveling.*

Tidus: The enemy has appeared again! Guess we're going full speed again, 
dudes!

Cecil: Tidus... You're pretty strong. You don't hesitate at all.

Tidus: Huh?

Cecil: About my brother...

Cecil: ...No, it's nothing. Let's hurry on ahead.

Tidus: You mean what he said earlier about the "secret of the crystals"?

Cecil: Yeah...

Cecil: I'm still trying to figure out what he was trying to tell me...

Tidus: That's why you should go find him, dude!

Cecil: Huh?

Tidus: You really regret not going, don't you?

Cecil: Yeah, my brother put himself in a lot of danger to come to me. I don't
want it all to be in vain...

Tidus: Stop trying to act so cool! If you want to go after him, then that's 
all you need, bro!

Cecil: But, Frioniel will worry about me...!

Tidus: This has NOTHING to do with Frioniel!

Tidus: If you come right back after taking care of your business, then 
there will be NO problem!

Tidus: I'll cover for you, so just go!

Cecil: You'd do that for me? Really?

Tidus: Listen to your friends!

Cecil: Thank you. I'll definitely be back soon. I promise!

*Cecil runs off.*

Tidus: Eep! Err...

inner monologue.*

Tidus: "I was surprised. I've never seen him so mad before."

Tidus: "I was the one who advised Cecil to go off on his own, after all."

Tidus: "I tried every excuse. I even tried laughing it off..."

Tidus: "Stuff like this is my specialty."

Frioniel: So in other words, he went after Golbeza.

Tidus: ...Pretty much.

Tidus: That Cecil couldn't stop thinking about Golbeza.

Tidus: He kept it to himself and it ate away at him...

Tidus: He thought if he went to talk with his brother, he'd be able to get a 
definite answer.

Tidus: Did I... Bomb this one?

Frioniel: Well, it can't be helped, can it?

Frioniel: Are you all right?

Frioniel: Don't you also have a similar situation with the enemy?

Tidus. Not. At. All!

Frioniel: Why? Isn't he your father?

Tidus: Because I hate him.

Tidus: He's always been so full of himself, and he treats me like a brat...

Tidus: I've always wanted to beat him down.

Tidus: That's totally the only thing I want!

Frioniel: I see. Then...

Butz: "Well, well. Wonder what they're talking about."

*Butz runs to a closer hiding spot.*

The Emperor: If you're wondering about the utopia, it's not far off. The 
problem comes afterwards.

The Emperor: Won't you lend us a hand, Sephiroth?

The Emperor: Aren't you fed up with the others that only cause needless and 
inefficient destruction as well?

Sephiroth: I'm not interested.

Ultimecia: It doesn't seem like you understand your own position.

Sephiroth: If that's the case, then what are you going to do about it?

Butz: "What's this, what's this? Is the girl picking a fight?"

*The Emperor, Ultimecia, and Sephiroth turn towards Butz's direction.*

The Emperor: You, insect... What are you doing?

*Butz jumps out from his hiding place.*

Butz: W-Who are you calling an insect!?

*Butz realizes the situation.*

Butz: I-I'll remember this!

*Butz runs off.*

Ultimecia: Should we chase after him?

The Emperor: No... There's a "light" of greater interest at hand.

The Emperor: Perfect.

The Emperor: Instead of getting a crystal from him, that insect will lead 
us to that needless destroyer.

Ultimecia: Needless destroyer... You mean Exdeath, right?

Cosmos: It's becoming too dangerous. The dark forces are convening.

WoL: All of our enemies gathering is a convenience. We'll be able to gather 
all the crystals in one fell swoop.

Cosmos: Recklessness isn't the same thing as courage.

WoL: Cowardice isn't the same thing as prudence.

WoL: Even if there is only hopelessness ahead, a path will definitely 
open up. You're the one who taught me that.

WoL: In this shattered world, you have shown us the light.

WoL: If there is a will, there is a way... For those of us who are left, 
that is our greatest belief.

WoL: I swore an oath: I will obtain the crystals and save the world.

WoL: That determination is my only support.

Cosmos: Your words have touched me.

Golbeza: Cecil, did you know that there are prerequisites for obtaining the 
crystals?

Golbeza: I came to make sure you did.

Cecil: Prerequisites?

Golbeza: Yes, I...

*Exdeath teleports in.*

Exdeath: A family of two who were lost in the darkness. Such heartwarming

Exdeath: You couldn't have crossed over to the enemy side, right, Golbeza?

Exdeath: You weakling who still misses the light!

Golbeza: This has nothing to do with you.

Exdeath: No, it does.

Squall: Ultimecia...!

Ultimecia: For you to obtain such splendid determination.

Squall: Determination...?

Ultimecia: Yes, the determination to continue down your path alone!

Ultimecia: To heartlessly abandon your allies!

Ultimecia: That is how I've been leading you to your crystal.

Squall: I'm not abandoning anyone!

Ultimecia: From the bottom of your heart, you don't believe in anyone.

Ultimecia: That's why you travel alone... Right?

Ultimecia: Right about now, Kuja should be taking care of Zidane and Butz.

Ultimecia: It's too late to go back and save your allies now.

Ultimecia: The fact that your true heart is thinking "whatever" is proof of 
this, isn't it?

Squall: "...Whatever?"

Cecil: Is something wrong?

Golbeza: I didn't lend you a hand and you defeated Exdeath on your own.

Golbeza: The crystals' brilliance lies in the strong determination that 
people hold.

Golbeza: That is the secret of the crystals.

Golbeza: But the current you should be able to obtain the crystals...

Cecil: Brother, I only fought to protect you...

Cecil: Hey, why don't we travel together?

Golbeza: What did you say...?

Cecil: I want to tell my friends what I've just learned. Everyone else is 
searching for their crystal, too.

Cecil: If we gather the crystals, the fighting will be over. And if that

place, following the light from Squall's crystal.*

Squall: So Butz fell into an enemy trap...

Zidane: Sorry. It's because we were both too enthusiastic.

Squall: Be careful. They're also targeting you.

Zidane: If they're coming for me, I won't run away. I need to hurry and 
save Butz.

Zidane: If we keep following that light, we'll definitely...

Zidane: At this rate, we'll be able to find Butz a lot faster.

Squall: Yeah, if it's you, you'll definitely be able to...

*Zidane and Squall continue forward.*

Zidane: ...The light is getting stronger! Butz must be close, right?

Squall: This way? All right, let's go!

Cefca: Dammit, dammit, dammit, dammit, dammit, dammit.

Cefca: Damn, damn, damn, damn, damn, damn, damn, damn, damn, damn.

Cefca: Daaaaammiiiiit!!

Cefca: After I went through all that trouble! You always, always, ALWAYS get
in my way!

OK: ...What are you scheming!? Why do you keep following Tina?

Cefca: Huh? What are you, an ally of justice? A fake is trying to impose his
boring sense of justice on ME!

OK: ...A fake?

Tina: ...Where did they go? 

Tina: I don't want to be alone... Without him, I'm helpless...

epitome of destruction!"

Tina: I don't want any destruction...

Cosmos: Has your hesitation vanished?

Cecil: Cosmos...

Cecil: I don't understand anything.

Cecil: I thought the crystals were something that everyone was supposed to 
search for together.

Cecil: I thought everyone was supposed to combine their strengths to succeed.

Cecil: But my brother...

Cecil: He told me not to rely on others.

Cecil: Am I really weak for doing so?

Cecil: Am I really just holding onto childish fantasies...?

Cosmos: Are you asking me for the answer?

Cecil: (Yes.)

Cosmos: The crystals will not shine for those who only rely on others.

Cosmos: What your brother said is true.

Cecil: I see...

Cosmos: Don't make such a sad face.

Cosmos: Don't worry. You are definitely getting closer to your crystal.

Cosmos: You should realize it.

Cosmos: Relying on the strength of others. Combining with the strength of 
others. Are these two the same thing to you?

Cosmos: Because it's you, you will definitely reach the brilliance of the 
crystals. That is the prerequisite.

Cecil: But Cosmos...

Cosmos: The answer lies within you.

*Cosmos fades away.*

Cecil: I...

Tina: Why didn't you run away?

Cloud: I couldn't just abandon you when you were suffering.

Cloud: Having said that, I couldn't think of what to do.

Tina: Could it be...?

Tina: You fought me to calm me down from my power?

Cloud: I'm sorry. I should have tried talking first.

Cloud: But hindsight is twenty-twenty.

Cloud: I probably should have left when you told me to.

Tina: Thank you.

Cloud: I don't deserve such words. There's no evidence that I did a 
good thing.

Cloud: But really, anything would have been better than how I hesitated.

Tina: But, you really did help me.

Tina: The intent alone has gotten through.

Cloud: Even though I hesitated, there was something I was able to do?

Tina: Is something wrong?

Cloud: No, it's just something I was thinking about before I came here...

Cloud: Anyways, what are you going to do?

Cloud: Weren't you traveling with anyone?

Tina: Well...

Frioniel: Break time's over. Let's get moving.

Tidus: Tch, fine.

Tidus: I'll get it out of you after I settle things with my dad and find 
my crystal.

Frioniel: You sure are stubborn, aren't you, Tidus?

Tidus: Frioniel! What's your goal in life?

Frioniel: Goal?

Tidus: Don't you have one? Like "becoming the world's greatest swordsman" 
or "defeating that guy no matter what".

Tidus: Like Cloud and Cecil, who have a goal that they continue on for!

Tidus: If you don't have one, it's going to be tough to continue.

Frioniel: For now... I just want to end the fighting. I haven't thought about 
anything else.

Tidus: Geez, you sure have a one-track mind, dude!

Frioniel: Anything else is superfluous.

is no shortage of enemies, and the goal seems so far away.

Tidus: The amount of enemies means nothing! If you just focus on the goal, 
then you'll be all right!

Frioniel: Is that right? Then let's continue down our path.

*Frioniel and Tidus come across a treasure chest. Frioniel opens it and takes 
the contents within.*

Tidus: ...Dude, is it all right to just take stuff like that?

Butz: What are you saying? You guys are just trying to make excuses!

control my power again.

Cloud: Everyone hesitates.

*Cloud produces Frioniels wild rose in his hand.*

Cloud: Very few people are ever completely confident in their actions.

Tina: What's that?

Cloud: Frioniel's "dream".

Tina: Dream?

*Cloud puts away Frioniel's wild rose.*

Cloud: "A world where wild roses bloom".

Cloud: That is his wish.

Cloud: He told me...

Cloud: "Because I have a dream, I will never stop fighting".

Cloud: Sometimes I'm jealous of his resolve.

Tina: It must be wonderful to be so certain.

Tina: Cloud, what kind of dream do you have?

Cloud: I don't have one.

Tina: Huh?

Cloud: How about you?

Tina: I don't have one either.

Tina: I can't think of any reason for me to preserve the future.

Tina: And that's because I'm always scared.

Tina: But now...

Tina: Hey, how about if we share the same dream?

Cloud: The same dream?

Cloud: A world where wild roses bloom?

Tina: Right. But not just wild roses.

Tina: A world where all kinds of flowers bloom.

Tina: The flowers that I like, and the flowers that the Onion Knight likes.

Tina: After this talk about dreams, I've started to think about it.

Tina: A future where I'm not just afraid...

Tina: I want to witness such a world with everyone.

Tina: If I think like that...

Tina: Then even if I hesitate, my heart should not waver.

Tina: The flowers that you like will also bloom...

Cloud: A dream is not so easily realized.

WoL: It's just like him to take advantage of the confusion and escape.

The Emperor: I really have the worst luck.

The Emperor: But, do you really understand the situation?

WoL: ...I see. If it's like that...

The Emperor: My... So you would crush your own hope.

The Emperor: Are the crystals what you gentlemen seek?

WoL: I pledged to end this fight with my own hands.

Zidane: Grr...

Kuja: Right now, even though your friends are being hurt, you can't do a 
thing about it.

Kuja: Like an imprisoned bird in a cage, all you can do is listen to your 
friends' screams...

Zidane: Shut up!

Kuja: And I shall take my time viewing your solo performance.

*Kuja teleports away.*

Zidane: Everyone...

Tidus: Got it! All right, see you later!

Frioniel: Yeah, we'll meet over there. Don't exhaust yourself being too 
energetic.

Tidus: ...Did he wander off?

*Jecht walks on screen.*

Jecht: Say, ain't that Jecht's boy?

Tidus: Old man...!

Jecht: What's wrong? We finally meet. Bring it on.

Jecht: Or are you scared?

Tidus: Like hell I'm scared!

*The Emperor teleports in.*

The Emperor: ...Wait.

The Emperor: Tch... You showed up, your majesty?

The Emperor: Your son is only fighting out of hatred.

The Emperor: That isn't part of our plan.

Jecht: Geez, this is annoying.

Tidus: What're you guys going on about!?

Jecht: (Sigh) We'll have to postpone our match. We'll do it later.

*Jecht walks off.*

Tidus: Wait! Are you running away!?

The Emperor: (Hmph.) You hate your own father?

Tidus: Get out of my way!

conversing.*

WoL: That rose...

Frioniel: I don't get it... When I came to, it was here. Cosmos, do you know
how this happened?

Cosmos: I also do not know... But I feel a mysterious power at work. 

Cosmos: I cannot quite discern what it is, but it feels like a power that I 
have been familiar with for a long time...

Frioniel: ...Wild rose. What a sweet sound...

*Scene switches to the present. Garland and Golbeza are conversing.*

Garland: Do not let your personal feelings get in the way. Was that flower 
your doing? 

Garland: While we are on the topic of trickery, the others will not go back 
on their decision about time.

Golbeza: It is unnecessary to have old times relapse. If we can reach new 
times, then...

Garland: Even if it can be saved next time?

Golbeza: Now... If that were to be the case...

*Scene switches to Frioniel and Tidus traveling.*

Frioniel: There sure are a lot of enemies... Tidus, let's split up.

Tidus: Got it! All right, see you later!

Frioniel: ...I wonder if I should be as carefree as he is.

*Frioniel and Tidus split up. Frioniel battles his way forward.*

Frioniel: Phew, that was dangerous... Maybe splitting into two groups was a 
bad idea? I hope Tidus is all right.

*Jecht walks on screen.*

Jecht: (Hmph.) That brat was always a handful.

Frioniel: You're... Tidus' father, right? What did you do to him?

Jecht: I didn't do a thing. If I were to fight him now, it wouldn't mean a 
thing.

Frioniel: Tidus' sole desire is to fight you. Did you run away from him?

Jecht: That's not very funny.

Jecht: All these interferences have put me in a bad mood. Fight with me for

Tidus: What the hell was that!? I don't get it at all!

Tidus: "Did he run away...?"

Frioniel: ...I won't fight you.

Jecht: Huh? What did you say?

Frioniel: I understand now.

Frioniel: Your true opponent isn't me. It's Tidus!

Frioniel: If you're fighting me as a replacement for him, why are you unable 
to face his determination!?

Jecht: Boy, you have quite a mouth.

Jecht: However, you hit home.

Frioniel: Where are you going!?

Jecht: I know what I must do now. It's all because of a certain someone's 
meddling.

Jecht: As I thought, in troubled times like these, it's best to go out with 
a bang!

*Jecht walks off. Tidus runs on screen.*

Tidus: Frioniel! Are you all right?

Frioniel: ...I see. As expected of father and son. You two are just alike.

Tidus: My old man?

Tidus: Was he... here?

Frioniel: Until just a second ago.

Frioniel: We crossed swords and then he left.

Frioniel: Defeating him is your duty, not mine.

Frioniel: Now, let's go settle this!

Tidus: ...Yeah.

Frioniel: What's wrong?

Tidus: Hey, you know that gold-gilded... Emperor?

Tidus: He said something to me.

Tidus: "If you fight only for hate, you will not obtain your crystal".

Tidus: ...What do you think that means?

Frioniel: The Emperor's words are only tools for tricking people.

Frioniel: You should just follow your heart.

Frioniel: You're determine to fight your father, right?

Tidus: ...No doubt!

Frioniel: See? You have no hesitation. Your father was the same!

*Frioniel walks off.*

Tidus: "I have no hesitation."

Tidus: "But I feel like I'm cheating..."

Everyone is. 

Garland: ...The Sorceress Ultimecia as well. We are kindred souls who carry

Cosmos: Even in this situation, there is something you can do.

Cosmos: Isn't that right?

Zidane: But I think it's too late now...

Cosmos: Your friends believe in you.

Cosmos: They don't think you have been defeated.

Cosmos: You must believe in them, too.

Zidane: Believe in everyone...

Cosmos: Your friends are strong.

Butz: I've been serious!

Tidus: Approve of me.

Tidus: That's all I ever wanted to tell you...

Jecht: Geez, do you always have to be such a brat?

Tidus: ...I can't help it.

Tidus: I'm your son, after all.

Jecht: ...Well said.

Jecht: Hey, you crybaby...

Jecht: You've become strong.

*Jecht disappears. A crystal appears in front of Tidus and he grabs it.*

Tidus: Ah...

*Scene opens on Frioniel staring off into the distance. Cosmos teleports in.*

Frioniel: Cosmos...!

Cosmos: Cloud, Cecil, and Tidus have all obtained their crystals without 
incident.

Frioniel: They did it!

Cosmos: Yes, because they all continued down their own paths...

Frioniel: Their own paths, huh?

Cosmos: Have you lost sight of yours?

Frioniel: I... don't have a father to surpass, a brother to fight together 
with, or a definite goal.

Frioniel: I've just been fighting recklessly to try and bring an end to this 
battle.

Frioniel: It's just as The Emperor said: I'm just a tool with no will of my 
own. Even though he told me, there's nothing I can do about it.

Cosmos: No, you have a symbol as well. You have a feeling that you've always 
been carrying within your breast.

Frioniel: I don't have a splendid thing like that. Only a vague and childish 
dream.

Cosmos: Tell me, what is the future your heart desires the most?

Frioniel: Wild roses...

Frioniel: A world where wild roses bloom. That is my dream.

Frioniel: When the world is free of strife, it will be covered in flowers.

Frioniel: A world where we can overcome the things we have lost, a world 
where the rain and the storm are the only destructive powers, that is the 
world I wish to create...

Cosmos: What a wonderful dream.

Cosmos: You live for your own beliefs. If you were a tool who only fights, 
you wouldn't possess such dreams.

Frioniel: Cosmos...

Frioniel: You're right. This is my own dream. And I will seize it.

Cosmos: I want to see such a dream come true, too...

*Cosmos fades away.*

Frioniel: I'll show it to you. Definitely.

The Emperor: Here comes the tool of war without a purpose. What do you want?

Frioniel: I'm not a tool. I am fighting for the sake of my dream!

The Emperor: The wild rose? You're throwing your life away for such a foolish 
dream.

The Emperor: You don't even have the strength to realize it.

*The Emperor fires a few spells at Frioniel, bringing him to his knees.*

The Emperor: What's wrong? Is your dream over already?

*Cloud and Tidus walk on screen and shield Frioniel.*

Cloud: It's not over yet!

Cloud: You've been left alone for too long.

Tidus: Our friends' dreams are our dreams...

Tidus: We'll protect it together!

*The Emperor fires a few more spells and Frioniel, Tidus, and Cloud deflect 
them.*

The Emperor: Time is up.

*The Emperor teleports away.*

The Emperor: Come after me, Frioniel! Show me the extent of 
your determination!

Cloud: Cecil and Tina should be arriving soon, but...

Tidus: You want to go on your own, don't you?

Frioniel: I will see this to the end.

Frioniel: This is...

Sephiroth: Every time, we cling to the same things... We aim for the same

Garland: ...Thus is the nature of the cycle.

Sephiroth: And the light has also come to save you again. Is it because he
knows not the true nature of the cycle that he always wants to break it?

Garland: ...Everything is futile... Nothing matters compared to the "Grand 
Purpose".

*Frioniel cries out in pain as he is struck, and The Emperor laughs. When 
the dust clears, Frioniel collapses to the floor. The Emperor readies more 
spells.*

The Emperor: You should discard your illusions and accept my rule.

*Frioniel's scattered weapons float off the floor and fly towards The Emperor.
They also fly through The Emperor's readied spells and disperse them.*

The Emperor: What!?

*The Emperor finds himself surrounded by Frioniel's weapons. Frioniel rises 
to his feet.*

Frioniel: Power that only hurts people is meaningless.

*Frioniel charges at The Emperor.*

Frioniel: I...

*The weapons fly into Frioniel's hands.*

Frioniel: Have a dream that I'm willing to give my life for!

The Emperor: What can an insect like you do?

Frioniel: My belief in the future...

WoL: I must believe in the light... No matter how many times I must cross 
swords with all of you, my heart will not waver!

Garland: The time has come. As is our predestined fate... With my power that

Garland: No matter what you do, it won't mean a thing.

Garland: This endless war...

Garland: The endless cycle of death and rebirth in this eternal battle.

WoL: Endless?

Garland: That's right.

Garland: Like the gods' cycle of death and rebirth, our battle shall 
continue forever!

Garland: That is the truth of this world! That is our unalterable fate!

Garland: You should abandon such foolish things as hope!

Garland: Accept this endless cycle. At least fighting is fun, right?

WoL: You're pitiful, Garland.

Garland: ...What did you say?

Garland: You are bound to this hopeless destiny of battle.

WoL: Such pathetic words.

WoL: We will definitely overcome this battle.

WoL: I may seem trapped in this eternal battle.

WoL: But now that I know the truth, I will overcome it.

WoL: I fight only to end this eternal cycle!

Garland: Even if you defeat me here, it will be nothing but another turn in 
the cycle!

*WoL draws his sword.*

Garland: The crystals have the power to sever the chains of time.

WoL: Right. The power to end this battle.

Garland: And the existence of the gods.

WoL: What did you say?

Garland: When all the crystals are gathered, what happens to the gods?

Garland: When the eternal cycle is broken, what happens to this world?

Garland: Even the gods cannot foresee it. A future steeped in discord has 
begun...

Cosmos: They must know true darkness...

CoD: I see. So you are saying that this war... has been repeating itself?

Ultimecia: I am using this eternal war to gather sufficient power. After all,
I only have one true goal...

Ultimecia: ...However, something feels wrong this time. The world... is 
trembling like never before... 

Ultimecia: There is no way The Emperor could have given Cosmos a "perfect 
death", is there...?

CoD: ...I have no interest in anyone's schemes. I wish only... to find my way

The Emperor: It is vastly different from the "artificial deaths" up until now.
Cosmos' soldiers are now erased for good. And so are we...

Jecht: ...What do you mean?

The Emperor: ...You are a "traitor" with a body of darkness with a heart of 
light that I created from the spoils that I obtained from the last victory.

Jecht: Spoils?

The Emperor: ...The crystals. And your body of darkness has a special aptitude.

The Emperor: Just as I had planned, you became the opposition to your son's 
light.

The Emperor: Now, until it is snatched away from me... You should tremble in 
awe... I have obtained power that surpasses the gods' expectations!

Jecht: ...I see. So my gut feeling that this whole thing was wrong wasn't off.

Zidane: Fate? Wasted effort? ...That's probably how it is. But does that mean

Butz: What did you mean when you said that Cosmos was destroyed because of 
us!?

Exdeath: Fine. It's about time someone told all of you.

Exdeath: The true nature of the crystals.

Exdeath: They are items embraced by the goddess and the origin of the power 
of harmony...

Tidus: The power of harmony?

Tidus: (Gasp!) You mean...?

Exdeath: That's right. They are fragments of the goddess. You could say the
power of Cosmos resides in them.

Exdeath: Because all of you have obtained the crystals, Cosmos lost her 
powers and vanished.

Exdeath: Her removal from this war was the doing of the crystals.

Exdeath: But there is still a remainder of light, though fleeting.

Exdeath: However, that power will soon be exhausted.

Butz: If the light vanishes, then we will also...

Exdeath: Return to the void from whence you came!

WoL: Didn't Frioniel defeat you!?

The Emperor: I have returned from hell.

The Emperor: Right now, this world needs a new ruler.

Frioniel: If it's someone like you...

Frioniel: Then the battle will never be over!

The Emperor: Such heated words.

The Emperor: The true crisis begins now.

OK: Huh?

WoL: What are you saying?

The Emperor: Now that Chaos has won, the curse of battle has been broken.

The Emperor: Those who want to reduce the world to nothing.

The Emperor: Those who simply revel in destruction.

The Emperor: They have all begun to act on their desires.

The Emperor: This truly has become a world of discord.

OK: (Tch.) We'll stop them all.

Frioniel: We won't let them take away our future!

The Emperor: (Hmhm.) None of you has a future.

The Emperor: For as long as I rule, you will all be my entertainment, 
soldiers of the old world.

Golbeza: Everything I did was to save them. However... I was unaware of your 
plan.

Golbeza: Crystals that held the power of darkness... You couldn't have found
a way to excape the impending extinction...

The Emperor: Did you not call upon the despair of the end of the world with 
me...? Pitiful, Golbeza.

Golbeza: No... Not despair.

The Emperor: ...What did you say?

Golbeza: This world is created by things torn from other dimensions by the 
god and the goddess... You could call it a collection of fragments.

Golbeza: As long as Chaos continues his reign, the fragments will be trapped 
in this world and eventually sink into the darkness.

Golbeza: However, if Chaos was to be destroyed, the fragments would split up,
and... become liberated once more.

Golbeza: I will ensure that this hope is possible. They... have the power to
overthrow Chaos!

The Emperor: You fool...! 

The Emperor: You cannot defeat the Chaos, the God of Destruction. There is 
nothing you can do to interfere with my plan. 

The Emperor: I will show you that my power can rule even the gods!

Golbeza: Fate has brought us here... You are aware of it this too, are you 
not?

Garland: However... This is not the intent of the "Grand Purpose". I have
not fulfilled my sworn duty.

Garland: This world is a testing ground to manufacture the ultimate weapon, 
Chaos...

Garland: ...Until that is accomplished, this eternal battle will never end...

Golbeza: ...Garland, what is it that you know that we do not? Who... exactly
are you...?

Garland: My origins are insignificant. I have been trapped in the cycles of 
what were formerly different dimensions for as long as I can remember.

Garland: The "Grand Purpose" is... the only thing that gives my life purpose.

Garland: To watch over the world... That is the duty that Chaos and Cosmos
fight over.

Golbeza: Duty...?

Garland: Everything that has passed has been for the sake of nurturing Chaos'
innate power. And... creating the ultimate weapon.

Golbeza: That is... your true desire?

Garland: ...Do you have something you wish to say?

Golbeza: The cycle in this world is no exception. The cycle... is 
foreshadowing the end.

Golbeza: The tale has already begun to progress... Its course can no longer 
be altered.

Golbeza: Since that is the case, wouldn't it be all that much better if hope 
was to be discovered in the future?

Garland: ...My cycle cannot be ended, Golbeza. I... am just a puppet...

Golbeza: ...

Garland: However... Such an existence can still be fun. Even if the future 
holds no hope... At the very least we should enjoy ourselves.

Garland: This endless battle... will never end.

OK: Because Cosmos has been erased, we will also be erased. Is the reason we

Frioniel: Hey... Will we be able to change anything?

Frioniel: From the very beginning, we were fated to vanish... and Cosmos kept
that from us. If she knew the whole time... Isn't that a bit too cruel?

Cloud: ...Not at all. If we save this world... If we cand do that... Then all 
the other worlds in the other dimensions will be saved, too. Then... we'll be
able to go home.

Tidus: Then we return to our worlds without being erased...? If we can, our 
dreams and hopes... won't have been for nothing, right?

Cloud: ...

Cloud: ...I was making that up.

Tidus: Making it up!?

Squall: However... It's a pleasant thought. Don't you think so, Frioniel?

WoL: We came to stop you.

The Emperor: For you swarm of insects to defy me... Absurd.

Zidane: We're not as weak as you think!

Zidane: We've overcome many hardships.

The Emperor: (Hmph.) "Overcome"... eh?

The Emperor: If that's the case...

The Emperor: Do you all truly think you obtained the crystals on your own?

Cecil: What are you trying to say?

The Emperor: I'm saying it was all according to our plan.

The Emperor: Naturally, Cosmos intended to grant all of you her power.

The Emperor: But think about it: who showed you gentlemen the way during 
the battle? Who guided you?

The Emperor: Wasn't it "us"...?

WoL: What?

The Emperor: Though she was weakening, Cosmos was still a goddess.

The Emperor: The only way to completely destroy her was to have her 
relinquish her power.

The Emperor: It was the ultimate plan.

The Emperor: So gentlemen, congratulations on overcoming your hardships and 
obtaining the crystals.

Zidane: Grr...

The Emperor: Well, we had people among our own ranks just do as they pleased.

The Emperor: But thanks to them, it was easier.

The Emperor: And, of course, you gentlemen, the goddess-killing dark forces.

Cecil: Is that what you truly think? Don't make fun of us!

Cecil: You don't understand a thing.

*Cecil and Zidane draw their weapons.*

Zidane: Don't you dare taint Cosmos' sacrifice!

WoL: She entrusted us with her dying wish...

WoL: We won't end as your tools!

Sephiroth: I killed myself before. To find out what is concrete in this 
ephemeral world.

Garland: Impossible... Your memories before your death are coming back to you?
It can't be...

Sephiroth: If you were to live forever, would the meaning of your life not
gradually fade?

Garland: ...What do you mean?

Sephiroth: Releasing the spirit from the flesh... If one were to do that,
would one become one with the spiritual energy of this world, right?

Garland: ...What is your point?

Sephiroth: I was just talking about a hunch. Pay it no heed.

Garland: ...

Garland: ...This world is comprised of many qualities torn from other 
dimensions. If Chaos were to be destroyed, they would all be liberated...

Garland: A new world will most likely be created in another dimension.

Sephiroth: So, what you are saying is... we are going to have to journey 
there? When this world ends, we will have to start all over on new world...

Sephiroth: ...What is that you desire in the future?

Garland: Desire...? Am I even capable of desiring anything anymore?

like that since the beginning... and it will probably be like that forever.

*Scene opens on a defeated Garland kneeling on the floor. Garland laughs 
uncontrollably.*

WoL: What is so amusing?

Garland: Rejoice. You were able to cast off the chains of time.

Garland: We won't be able to revive anymore.

Garland: The cycle is broken. Now you have brought about true havoc.

WoL: True havoc...?

Garland: That's right. It has awakened. Ultimate discord...

Garland: With his divine strength, Chaos will bury this world and all of 
you with it!

WoL: This world and all of us with it? For what reason...!?

Garland: Discord. To destroy all shape and form of existence.

Garland: Is negating existence not the ultimate form of discord?

Garland: Even if this battle were to end, there would be no celebration, no 
glory, no salvation, and no future.

Garland: The world that Chaos snatched from the late goddess Cosmos will be 
reduced to nothing.

WoL: Nothing... Everything will be eradicated!?

Garland: (Hmhmhm.) That is the god's will...

WoL: And you are all right with this?

Garland: Even if the world loses its shape, the cycle will still continue.

*Garland begins to fade.*

Garland: Beyond time, beyond dimension, the spirit of this battle will live 
on forever!

Garland: Farewell, soldiers of Cosmos. Next time, we will be fighting in 
hell...

*Garland disappears.*

WoL: Chaos... The next battle will be the last.

Jecht: To be honest, I don't quite get it either.

Jecht: Well, you don't wanna leave our match the way it is, do you?

Jecht: A true ace is able to scrape a victory at the last minute.

going with such hesitation?

Jecht: Geez, how pitiful.

Jecht: You're completely lost without me, aren't you?

Tidus: I...!

Jecht: (Hehe!) Well, when you don't understand something, you just have to 
accept it.

Tidus: Huh?

Jecht: Why you're weak, the path you're walking down...

Jecht: Why you don't understand a thing about this world; accept it all.

Jecht: After you have, you'll be able to find the answers on your own.

Jecht: Progress by yourself, and tomorrow will definitely come.

Tidus: ...Are you saying this for my sake?

Jecht: Are you gonna cry again?

Tidus: (Sniffle.) ...Idiot.

Jecht: (Ehehehe!) That's Jecht's brat for ya!

Jecht: Don't call me a second time, all right?

the despair.

Cecil: Brother? Why?

Golbeza: In a world full of discord... I can fulfill my wish.

Golbeza: If you lost them here, you would be no match for Chaos' soldiers.

Cecil: Then...

Golbeza: It's splendidly strong.

Golbeza: If it's you guys, you will be able to overcome anything.

Golbeza: I believe all of you will succeed when the time comes.

*Golbeza turns and walks away.*

Cecil: Where are you going?

Golbeza: I am being summoned by Chaos. That means I still harbor weakness 
within my heart.

Golbeza: You don't need me by your side.

Cecil: Please wait.

*Golbeza continues without stopping.*

Cecil: Wait!

*Golbeza stops.*

Cecil: You're dishonest, brother.

Cecil: You said you believe in us. If that's the case, then...

Cecil: Fight with us! With you by our side, we will definitely win!

Golbeza: Cecil...

Cecil: If it's about bonds, don't we have one, too!?

Cecil: I promise you that I absolutely won't lose. That's why, someday, 
when the time comes...

Cecil: We can be comrades...!

Golbeza: You are...

Golbeza: Far too kind for a knight.

Tina: Cefca...

Cefca: Could it be... you came to let me destroy you?

Cefca: That must be it! After what you guys did to Cosmos, you want to follow 
after her.

Tina: You... Know something about that?

Cefca: You wanna know?

Cefca: You wanna know!? Then...

Cefca: I WON'T TELL YOU!

Tina: Stop messing around!

Cefca: (Sorry.) Even if you know, there's no point.

Cefca: Meaningful destruction is boring!

Cefca: Meaningless destruction is fun!

Cefca: If people know everything will eventually be destroyed, why do they 
continue to build? If they know that they will eventually die, why do they 
continue to live?

Cefca: Once you're dead, it all becomes meaningless!

Tina: Because there are things we must protect.

Tina: Isn't it enough to search for meaning during your life?

Cefca: It's all futile. 

Cefca: The world and all of you will soon be eradicated.

Cefca: Life...

Cefca: Dreams...

Cefca: Hopes..

Cefca: Where do they come from? Where do they go?

Cefca: All of these things are empty and unsatisfying!

Cefca: I'll destroy them all.... I'll spend my brilliant life destroying 
them all!

Cloud: I don't remember ever relying on you.

Sephiroth: (Hmph.) You've become soft, Cloud...

*Sephiroth turns to face Cloud.*

Sephiroth: You've become infected with this disease called despair.

Sephiroth: Your half-hearted desire is just another painful product of this

Cloud: Even so... It is a pain I must carry.

Cloud: If I run away, I won't be able to move forward.

Ultimecia: I'm just creating a world I desire, just like you...

Squall: Probably.

Squall: But I have a promise I want to keep.

Ultimecia: Then that will also become a part of my compressed world.

Your memory holds great importance. You should be aware of it yourself that 
the calamity of this story has tremendous relevance to what lies ahead.

The tale I am about to tell you is about a researcher, and also one of a 
mother and her child. However, this story may further the suffering of those 
who are struck by discord in an age drowning in despair.

To keep the official recording of the story I'm about to tell you from getting 
out, I plan to seal them away. Someday, it will be discovered by those who 
will appreciate it, but by the time they read this... This story will have
become a myth of the past. 

It is our duty to preserve it for those people. Because this story is proof 
that these people existed and these events occured. Now, please read it. 
Engrave this story into your memories...

He was born an unthinkably small child, with his size belying his tremendous 
power. 

This power was supposed to be raised and watched over by our country, but we 
decided to take care of the child as if he were our own. Looking into the 
child's pure eyes, how could we even consider any alternative? 

It pained us to know that the child was really the country's and not ours. 
We knew that someday he would be snatched away from us. 

My husband was troubled with the duty presented to him. Until now, he had only 
invented floating stones and airships... Things that enriched people's 
everyday lives. This child was different. He was a tool of war. 

However, disaster soon appeared. Because of the neighboring countries, who
used summon beasts and Omega to attack us, we had no choice. In order to
protect our peace, my husband had to continue his research.

The child, who was just beginning to learn to speak, wanted to communicate 
with us and was eager to talk to us. He even called me "mama" and my husband 
"papa" out of affection and often embraced us. 

The child had brought many a smile to our faces. Though we were frightened of 
war, he brought us endless delight. However, it would all soon come to an end. 

War... had broken out.
 
The child was taken back from us. The army, for the sake of ending the war as 
soon as possible, came to take the child.

The child continued to grow, and his unquestionable power seemed to suit
his destined role as a soldier. The orders of the army were absolute. 

The messenger from the country that came had to restrain me as they took the 
child. "Your orders were only to be a foster parent..." is what the army 
thought, and to them, my mission was fulfilled. 

As a result, that child went on to massacre the neighboring countries. In a 
maelstrom of hellfire, that child eliminated the summon beasts and Omega... 

It was then the world began to plummit into the depths of hell.

...In that way, that child eliminated his own purpose. Because the country no 
longer needed him as a soldier, they planned to dispose of him. 

When I heard of this, in order to save that child, I enlisted in the army. 

Even though he had brought untold suffering on countless people, I still 
wanted to save my son.

After my second battle, I refused to continue. As a result, my husband and I 
were branded traitors and imprisoned deep underground. 

While I was lost in my own grief of taking away the lives of so many innocent 
people, I overheard rumors of a project that began at the start of the war
while I was in the army.

It was a project that seemed very familiar... In order to manipulate that 
child's thoughts, they created a clone of me. 

The country planned to repeat the tragedy again. That child's power had become 
a thing of tremendous value. But they did not understand. 

An artificially created me is still me. If the clone did not want to make that 
child unhappy, nothing could be done. If the clone did not want to repeat the 
destruction, nothing could be done... The project was scrapped due to 
insufficient time. 

I decided that there was only one thing to do now.

The prison I was held in was a cave crawling with demons. I studied the 
demons' habits, and used the knowledge to break out of the jail with my 
husband. 

We fled from the jail and rushed towards the laboratory where the child was 
supposedly being held. Once there, we found a research subject that greatly 
resembled the child. 

The child became so thin that we did not even recognize him anymore. In the 
profound depths of his hollow eyes, the color of hatred began to rise. 

I was unable to tell him all the things I had wanted to. We gave him a 
rudimentary explanation, and quickly escaped with him. 

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|
 |Cosmos Report 07							     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

It happened while we were escaping with the child in our company. I was 
discovered by soldiers and shot. 

I could hear that child's cry of sorrow from far away. 

A bad premonition began to rise in my heart. It began to rise from the depths 
of that child's hollow eyes, the color of hatred...

My premonition came true. In front of that child, a rift in space and time 
was born, and everything was consumed by it. The darkness began to swell out
of control... 

It was then I lost consciousness. When I opened my eyes again, I saw only a 
destroyed laboratory. 

The child and my husband were nowhere to be found.

It is originally our tradition to pass down our memories to our family.
With my husband's great intelligence and engineering ability, I had a means 
to do so. 

On the brink of escape, I used the transmitting device and decided to go back 
to my birthplace. I thought that this way, even if I die, I'll be able to pass 
on my memories to my family.

After groping my way through the forest, I arrived in my birthplace: the town
known as the Wings of the Hawk, where peace and tranquility endured. 

Suddenly, the world around me began to sink into darkness. My family used the 
floating stone my husband left behind and the town began to rise into the air. 

I would soon tell them all that had happened to me, and they would come to 
understand everything. Thus the tradition of passing down our memories 
began...

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|
 |Cosmos Report 09							     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

Are you finished inheriting all of my memories?

Yes. I have not lost my ability to convey my memories. This is a superior way 
to books to preserve these memories for the generations to come.

Right now, the world that has fallen into discord by the hands of the Four
Fiends of Chaos and the world in the story I have told you are very similar, 
aren't they?

I do not understand it either. However, I believe this story will be the key 
to some gravely important place someday. In your memories, there is a rift
running through space and time. That, and the place where the the Four Fiends 
of Chaos dwell... In your memories, they are one and the same.

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|
 |Cosmos Report 10							     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

I see. Thank you very much. We shall inherit the recording of your story.

Lukahn, in the end, could we perhaps as you a question? Your prediction...
About the Warriors of Light...  Will such people really appear, obtain the
crystals, and save the world from the darkness?

Even though it was I who made the prediction, it is originally told by a
historian. History will see if this prediction comes true. I have a feeling 
it came from the world mentioned in the story.

The Warriors of Light will definitely appear. Then the world will be saved...

No, then the people the world will be freed from this cycle.

 |Chaos Report 01							     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

All things have an origin. Even this world has an origin. It all began with 
my desire...

There are two existences that are full of pure, unshakable power. Because 
these two forces oppose each other, this world is kept in perfect balance.

Our power was limitless. I decided to evolve our power through our mutual 
dispute. But if we battled even once, the world might lose its balance.

Before long, I discovered something of great interest. A knight who was 
chained to the prison of time by his hatred born of love, imprisoned by his 
karma. Whether the discord called to him, or he called to the discord, I do
not know. However, one thing was certain: he was fated to fight forever.

The endless conflict began here.

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|
 |Chaos Report 02							     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

Harmony and discord are divided within this eternally conflicted piece. But 
from the power he has displayed, that fact is trivial. 

However, this piece is quite peculiar. Even if he dies in battle, he is 
resurrected again in the state he was in right before his death. But he does
not seem to retain any of his memories before his death.

However, there is one condition to his resurrection: The posession a strong 
"something" seems to fulfill this requirement. Whether it is faith, regret, 
or fear, it makes no difference. It does not matter whether he is piece on 
the side of harmony or discord.

But this time, something went wrong. The piece resurrected with all of his 
memories intact. Was this unfluenced by the crystals that the goddess created? 
It was probably an omen. An omen of this war's unsettling conclusion...

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|
 |Chaos Report 03							     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

We were relentlessly besieged by the destroyer. Amidst the final battle, I 
finally found it. And like that, the power of discord was born. 

I had discovered a great power created from absorbing the powers of all the 
residents of this world. However, this was not a destructive power. 

In order for the country that raised this power to manipulate the discord, 
they created a method for harmony to control the discord: infusing their 
memories into the discord.

Now, I am the same as that country. In order to win this conflict, I must 
commit a heinous crime.

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|
 |Chaos Report 04							     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

Once they are born, everyone wishes to leave something behind in the world.

The Goddess of Harmony, Cosmos, left behind the crystals. It would not be
incorrect to call the crystals creations of Cosmos that embody the power of 
the goddess and the understanding of people. 

The crystals originally were not tools. They became tools out of necessity. 
They bestowed power to those who possessed them, and thus became tools. 

If this world was also turned into a tool, the wielder would be able to do 
anything.

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|
 |Chaos Report 05							     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

I could not fulfill my wish for ultimate discord. 

I thought that if my wish were to be fulfilled, I could put an end to this 
world and the war. However, something new was being born. A new life, different 
from any that came before, began to beat.

I thought that a strong, destructive power was my only path to salvation. 
However, I was mistaken.

It all began with hatred. When I obtained the ultimate weapon, I desired
revenge against those who desired power. But power does not guide people.


They taught me that in an endless war, sometimes people guide power. This
seemed to be an absolute truth of this world. I have no regrets. When the 
cycle begins anew, it will come under my guidance.

Even though I do not know whether it is for revenge or salvation, I will set 
out on yet another journey with that person. As a god that governs this world, 
I will see this war to its end.

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|
 |Chaos Report 06							     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

Who am I? 

My name holds no significance in this world. Everything I love has been 
snatched away and I no longer recognize the world around me. 

The world has been destroyed twelve times. This is the thirteenth time the 
world is being created. The next time, discord will probably win again, so I 
must use any and every means at my disposal. 

Perhaps I hate him because he is the reason I was torn from my wife. The next 
time will be the last... The only reason for this endless conflict to exist 
is so that the ultimate weapon can be created.

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|
 |Chaos Report 07							     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

I never thought anyone would willingly take their own life. 

Naturally, my memories have lost their meaning and he is the only proof of 
what is real anymore. Even if the flesh were to rot, my spirit shall not die. 
That theory is only partially correct. 

Originally, this world did not have a defined shape. Thinking that a world 
with no shape had no use, I took care of the rest with my own hand. 

But which is true? Can the spirit exist without flesh? Can the flesh exist 
without a spirit? 

Whether someone is "good" or "evil" is not determined before his/her birth.

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|
 |Chaos Report 08							     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

A direct interference in our war is unforgivable. I do not have the strength
left to deal with such a thing.

Thus I have signed a contract with a dragon that wanders through time and 
space.

When the war of the gods is over, the defeated god will choose a new piece to
take his place and the battle will begin anew.

As compensation, I will lose my body. That is hardly a problem.

The discord has absorbed far too many things. The only way left to save the
world is to purify it by destroying it and recreating it.

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|
 |Chaos Report 09							     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

I have yet to discover the true potential of harmony and chaos in my many
experiments. I will utilize the many wayward intentions of this world to to
accomplish things that are thought to be impossible.

After countless experiments, I finally succeeded. 

This success is the realization that in order to create such an amazing power, 
I must correct the mistakes in the world and seal the rifts in the dimensions. 
Only someone who is detached from the war will be able to do this. 

This person must be a person who fully comprehends their own existence. When 
one understands their own existence, nothing else can shake them. 

As for the piece from the beginning, if he establishes a purpose, he could be 
the one. 

Only the gods know everything that has passed and everything that will be. But
the only thing I need is power.

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|
 |Chaos Report 10							     |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=|

Everyone, you will be reborn from your fallen tears. In the beginning, 
everything is equally balanced.

And you will definitely understand your path. Like the piece that was 
mentioned, everyone has their own, unique path to continue down.

What is it that determines who we truly are? The flesh, the soul, discord, 
harmony; which really matters in the end?

This insecurity is what makes this war so interesting.

When the new world is created, which path will it take? As a researcher, I
have quite an interest in this.
