Seifer: Vienen por la chica?... Acaso pretenden quitarme la gloria de mi
captura?<EOP>
Constantemente mis sue;os se ven impedidos por sujetos como ustedes.

[caption #1]
VICKS: Think it's still alive?
WEDGE: Probably_
_judging from the urgency of our orders. <D24>

[caption #2]
VICKS: And this woman, this_sorcerer. Why's she here?<D24><EOP>
I heard she fried 50 of our Magitek Armored soldiers in under 3 minutes.<D24>

[caption #3]
WEDGE: Not to worry. The Slave Crown on her head robs her of all conscious
thought. She'll follow orders.<D24>

[caption #4]
Quizas no le lleve al maestro un cristal_
Pero sus cabezas seran una buena compensacion!

[caption #5]
Long ago, the War of the Magi
reduced the world to a
scorched wasteland, and magic
simply ceased to exist. <E$FF><OP$12>

[caption #6]
1000 years have passed_ Iron,
gunpowder, and steam engines
have been rediscovered, and
high technology reigns_ <E$FF><OP$12>

[caption #7]
But there are some who
would enslave the world by
reviving the dread destructive
force known as [magic.] <E$FF><OP$12>

[caption #8]
Can it be that those
in power are on the verge of
repeating a senseless
and deadly mistake? <E$2A><OP$12>

[caption #9]
An eerie glow surrounds you.<EOP>

Want info about Save Points?


<C> Yes

No sense taking any risks.
Forward!

self-important swine!
Take this!

GUARD: Narshe's freedom depends on us!

Con ese trasto sera sufiente_


X-ATM092 destruyelos!

VICKS: I'll handle this.
Stand back!

[caption #17]
GUARD: We've got 'em trapped, now!

[caption #18]
GUARD: We must defend the mines!

[caption #19]
Locked.

[caption #20]
GIRL: Where am I_?

[caption #21]
Seifer: Oh no!
Se libero!<EOP>
Claire: Te dije que pagarias por lo que me hiciste!

[caption #22]
OLD MAN: Easy! This is a Slave Crown. The others had complete control over
you while you were wearing it.

[caption #23]
GIRL: I can't remember a thing_
OLD MAN: Don't worry.
It'll all come back to you_in time, that is.<EOP>

[caption #25]
SOLDIER: Open up!
Give us back the girl and the Empire's Magitek Armor!!

[caption #26]
Claire: No creas que les voy a agradecer, tenia todo preparado para mi escape.

[caption #27]
<A0>: Empire_?
Magitek Armor_?

[caption #28]
OLD MAN: Look,

I have to get you out of here!


I don't have time to explain!

OLD MAN: Make your way out through the mines! I'll keep these brutes
occupied!

[caption #33]
Got her!

[caption #34]
She's up there!

[caption #35]
KEFKA: My sweet little magic
user_! Uweee, he, he! With this Slave Crown I'll practically OWN you!!

[caption #36]
<A0>: No! Get away from me!

[caption #37]
GESTAHL: We stand on the brink of a major breakthrough! In the days to come,
we'll witness a total revival of magic!<EOP>
GESTAHL: It is our destiny, and ours alone, to take this mystic force and claim
what is rightfully ours!

[caption #38]
CID: This is my finest work.
These Magitek converters combine the power of magic with machines_

[caption #39]
GESTAHL: With our new-found power, nothing can stand in our way!<EOP>
Hurrah!!!
Long live Emperor Gestahl!!!

[caption #40]
OLD MAN: Took you long enough!
How goes the robbing and plundering trade?

[caption #41]

<A1>: I PREFER the term treasure hunting!<EOP>


OLD MAN: Ha!
Semantic nonsense!
<A1>: There's a HUGE difference!

[caption #42]
<A1>: Anyway, were you the one who sent for me?<EOP>
OLD MAN: Yeah.
There's a girl I'd like you to meet.

[caption #43]
<A1>: __!?
This better not have anything to do with that Magitek-riding, imperial_witch!!!

[caption #44]
OLD MAN: Imperial troops are pursuing her even as we speak.<EOP>
This town is no match for the Empire.<EOP>
Our independence can only be assured if we join forces with the Returners, an
underground resistance movement.<EOP>
That girl wasn't responsible for her actions. We must get her to understand our
dilemma!

[caption #45]
<A1>: All right_
I think we'd better help her_

[caption #46]

OLD MAN: Agreed.


Make your way first to Figaro, and talk to the king.

[caption #47]
Treasure hunter and trail-worn traveler, searching the world over for relics of

[caption #55]
<A0>: Unh_

[caption #63]
MAN: You mean, THIS young woman_?!

[caption #64]
<A0>: Who do you think you are?

[caption #65]
MAN: Oh_sorry!

[caption #66]
MAN: How rude of me to turn my back to a lady!

[caption #67]
The young king of Figaro Castle, ally to the Empire, and a master designer of
machinery_

[caption #68]
<A4>: I am <A4>, King of Figaro.

[caption #69]
<A1>: Surprised someone like me knows a king?

[caption #70]
<A1>: Talk to you later!

[caption #71]
<A4>: So_you're an Imperial soldier! No problem. Figaro and the Empire are
allies!<EOP>
Please, relax while you're here.
It's not in my blood to harm a lady.

[caption #72]
<A0>: Look, why are you helping me?
Is it because of my_abilities?

[caption #73]
<A4>: I'll give you 3 reasons:
First of all, your beauty has captivated me!<EOP>

Second_I'm dying to know if I'm your type_

[caption #74]
I guess your_abilities_would be a distant 3rd.

[caption #75]
<A0>: __? <D>
What's with you, anyway?

[caption #76]
<A4>: Guess my technique's getting a bit rusty_

[caption #77]
<A4>: Come find me when you feel rested.

[caption #78]
<A0>: Hmm_I suppose a normal girl would have found him dashing. <D>
But I'm hardly_normal_

[caption #79]
Feel free to wander about.

[caption #80]
Go see the King!

[caption #81]

Weapons and items manufactured here are sent to South Figaro.

[caption #82]
Long ago, a force called [magic] existed.<EOP>
People who used magic were called [Mage Knights.]

[caption #83]
Mog: Nosotros nos encargaremos de la seguridad ahora, kupo!.

[caption #84]
Ancient texts I'm studying speak of a [1000 year-old city beneath the
sand.]<EOP>
I wonder what this means, <EOP>
[_when the queen stands and takes 5 steps_]

[caption #85]
I heard the Empire is using something called [magic]_

[caption #86]
The Empire has smashed the 3 cities on the southern continent. Just a matter
of time 'til they come up here_

[caption #87]
Gestahl has harnessed the power of magic.
Who can stop him now?!

[caption #88]
Though <A4> showers his attentions on women, most are too smart to pay any
attention to him.

[caption #89]
His highness said he'd marry me when I get older!

[caption #90]
I wanna marry the king!

[caption #91]
He recently tried to hit on the high priestess_
Surely, he's_talked to you?

These thieves have been
terrorizing the vicinity.
Stay away from 'em!

[caption #97]
I demand to see <A4>!
How dare they keep us in this stinking pit!

[caption #98]
Hey! Let us outta here!

[caption #99]
Relax, they're just blowing off steam. But I'm telling you, there's no sense
keeping us here!<EOP>
We're just small potatos compared to the real threat lurking out there! And King
<A4> knows it!

[caption #100]
I'm Lone Wolf, the pickpocket!

[caption #101]
MATRON: <A4>'s at it again!? He hits on anything that moves!

[caption #102]
MATRON: <A4> has a twin brother. He was such a nice boy_

[caption #103]
YOUTH: Brother,
What's wrong with father?
What's all this talk of his successor?<EOP>
<A4>: Are you blind?
Look how thin his face has become!

[caption #104]
YOUTH: ?__What is it?

[caption #105]
YOUTH: Brother!

[caption #106]
YOUTH: Tears__?!

[caption #107]
<A4>'s twin brother, who traded the throne for his own freedom_

[caption #108]
MATRON: Yes_
His name is <A5>. Oh, he looked so like his father!<EOP>
When he ran away, he was a sweet little child.
I wonder what he's like now?

[caption #109]
CHANCELLOR: The whole business of the succession was so repugnant to
<A5>, the King's brother, that__<EOP>
__he fled the castle forever. The succession was settled with a coin toss_

[caption #110]
MERCHANT: I can't take money from the King!<EOP>
<A4>: Look, don't you have a family?
Just shut up and take it.

[caption #111]
MERCHANT: Sir <A5>, I can't take your money!<EOP>
<A5>: Take it!
Haven't you heard? My brother says I'm a notorious spendthrift!

[caption #112]
<A4>: You've been busy down south!
Looking for more cities to destroy?<EOP>
TROOPER: That's for us to know!

[caption #113]
Sir Kefka!?
What on earth do_<EOP>
KEFKA: Outta my way!

[caption #114]
<A4>: Well?

How do you like my castle?

[caption #115]
King <A4>!
Someone from the Empire to see you!

[caption #116]
<A4>: Probably Kefka!

[caption #117]
KEFKA: Phooey!
Emperor Gestahl's stupid orders!

[caption #118]
KEFKA: <A4>, you pinhead!
Why do you have to live in the middle of nowhere?<EOP>
These recon jobs are the pits!

[caption #119]
KEFKA: Ahem_there's SAND on my boots!

[caption #120]
SOLDIERS: Yes, Sir!
All set, Sir!

[caption #121]

KEFKA: Idiots!

[caption #122]
<A4>: I thought we were allies! What are you doing in my domain?

[caption #123]
<A4>: What brings Kefka, humble servant of Emperor Gestahl, into our lowly
presence?<EOP>
KEFKA: A girl of no importance recently escaped from us. We heard she found
refuge here_

[caption #124]
<A4>: Hmm_this wouldn't have anything to do with this [witch] everyone's
been whispering about, would it?<EOP>
KEFKA: Lies!
She_merely stole something of minor value.
Is she here?

[caption #125]
<A4>: That's a tough one!

[caption #126]
<A4>: You see, there're more girls here than grains of sand out there. I can't
keep track of 'em all!<EOP>
KEFKA: I'd hate to be you if we find out you're lying_
Mwa, ha!

[caption #127]

KEFKA: I truly hope nothing happens to your precious Figaro_!

[caption #128]
<A1>: I'd say that guy's missing a few buttons_
<A4>: _
Where's <A0>?

[caption #129]
<A4>: Take her to her room_

[caption #130]
<A4>: I'd love to chat with you, but the Chancellor and I must plan our
strategy.<EOP>
Sometimes I hate being a king!
If you'll excuse me.

[caption #131]
<A1>: Follow me.

[caption #132]
<A1>: Don't you worry 'bout a thing! I'll_<EOP>
<A0>: You're <A1>, right? <A4> told me about you.
Is it true you're a thief?

[caption #133]
<A1>: That's TREASURE HUNTER!

[caption #134]
<A1>: On the surface, <A4> pretends to support the Empire.<EOP>
The truth is, he's collaborating with the Returners, an organization opposed to
the Empire.<EOP>
I am his contact with that group_

[caption #135]
<A1>: The old man you met in Narshe is one of us.<EOP>
<A0>: Empire_but I'm a soldier of the Empire_!

[caption #136]
<A1>: That's not true!
They were using you!
Things are different now.

[caption #137]
<A0>: I don't understand_
What should I do?

[caption #138]
<A1>: I can't tell you what to do.<EOP>
You don't have to decide right now.
You'll soon find your way_

[caption #139]
<A0>: But how will I know which way is right_

[caption #140]
<A4>: _?<EOP>
What the_?!

[caption #141]
<A4>: What's happening?<EOP>
SOLDIER: It's the Empire!
It's Kefka!

[caption #142]
<A4>: What are you doing?

[caption #143]
KEFKA: Bring me the girl. Now!
<A4>: I don't know what you're talking about!<EOP>
KEFKA: Then_
welcome to my barbecue!!
Uwa ha ha ha!

Fire! Fire! Heh, heh heh_

[caption #146]

<A4>: Get ready_!<EOP>


SOLDIER: Yes, Sir!

[caption #147]
KEFKA: Changed your mind_?

[caption #148]
<A4>: I guess I have no choice_

[caption #149]
<A4>: Or maybe I do!

[caption #150]
KEFKA: Ackk!
Shameful that a king should flee, leaving his people behind!<EOP>
How utterly delightful!

[caption #151]
<A4>: Jump! <E$04><OP$12>

KEFKA: Son of a submariner!
They'll pay for this_

[caption #159]
<A1>: This is great! <E$06><OP$12>

[caption #160]
<A0>: Was that a bad person? <E$04><OP$12>
I_ <D>I'm scared_

[caption #161]
<A4>: <A0>,
there's someone I'd like you to meet_!

[caption #162]
<A1>: We're members of the Returners.<EOP>
<A4>: Our mentor, Banon, would certainly like to meet you.<EOP>
[Magic] is going to be the key to winning this war.

[caption #163]
<A0>: [Magic]_

[caption #164]
<A4>: <A0> has magical powers. That Esper seemed to_react to her. Can
there be some connection?<EOP>
<A0>: I haven't the foggiest! It just seems natural to me that I have the use of
this power_

[caption #165]
<A4>: But no HUMAN is born with the powers you seem to have, and_

[caption #166]
<A4>: I apologize.
<A0>: What should I do_?<EOP>
<A4>: I'm sure the Empire is going to come after you_<EOP>
If they get their hands on you again, the world's finished_<EOP>
<A0>, you want to understand your own powers, right?

[caption #167]
<A4>: Then I think we need to consult with Banon.<EOP>

<A0>: __

[caption #168]
<A1>: Please_

[caption #169]
<A4>: OK!
To the south there's a cave that leads to South Figaro.

Welcome to South Figaro!

[caption #179]
You'll find lots of excellent weapons, armor and relics in our shops.

La mision es traer a Claire de regreso, no te entretengas con los
soldados.<EOP>
Entra, los cristales te llevaran a tu destino.

[caption #181]
Mt. Kolts is to the east.

[caption #182]
Beyond Mt. Kolts you'll find the Sabil mountain range.

[caption #183]
Equip relics to gain a variety of abilities!<EOP>
These double my walking speed!

[caption #184]
My husband, Duncan, is a
world-famous martial artist!<EOP>
He's taking his disciples to
Mt. Kolts for meditation and training.

[caption #185]
<A5>, where's Vargas?
Where's my husband?

Vargas_

DUNCAN'S WIFE: I'll never understand Vargas_<EOP>

[caption #190]
<A1>: At the very least you could give me a response_

[caption #191]
<A4>: Stand back!
He seems vaguely familiar_
Wait a minute_!

[caption #192]
He owes allegiance to no one,
and will do anything for money.
He comes and goes like the wind_

[caption #193]
<A4>: That's <A3>_!
He'd slit his mama's throat for a nickel!

[caption #194]
<A1>: Better steer clear of him, I guess.

[caption #195]
<A3>: Leave us.
The dog eats strangers_

[caption #196]
The guy at the counter_
He's kinda creepy_

[caption #197]
That guy at the counter_HEY! Where'd he go?

[caption #198]
Duncan's students have no peers!

[caption #199]
I'm so sorry to hear about Duncan.

[caption #200]
Duncan made his son, Vargas, practice a strict martial arts lifestyle. Vargas
resented it.

[caption #201]
The house in the northern part of town belongs to our wealthiest citizen.

[caption #202]
The Empire's been invading one town after the next.
We're not safe here!

[caption #203]
The Empire attacked Figaro Castle?!<EOP>
Now we'll all be drawn into the battle!

[caption #204]
I can't believe it!
The Empire'll smash us!

[caption #205]
This town'll go down fighting! Even with their Magitek Armor, we'll make it
tough on 'em!

[caption #206]
Attack from the east.
That way, <D>__?!<EOP>
Hey! Whaddaya think you're doin'? Barging in here while I'm trying to write a

Wind the clock!
Wind the clock!<EOP>
Uh, that was just a jump-rope rhyme!

[caption #212]
Has war really begun?
I'd better return home_

[caption #213]
The Imperial Troops have turned this house into their headquarters.

[caption #214]

There's always a nasty draft in this room. Where's it coming from?

[caption #215]
I don't like strangers.
Bring me some cider, and maybe I'll talk to you.

[caption #216]
What?!
No cider?!

[caption #217]
Hurumph_DOG!

[caption #218]
Ah! Cider!
Glug, glug, _<EOP>
Huh? Secret passage?
Well, there is one that leads to the rich man's house.

[caption #219]
Go downstairs and give my grandson the password. It's_uh, umm_
I forget!

[caption #220]
My grandfather was a servant for the richest man in town.

[caption #221]
Only people dressed as merchants may pass through.

Merchant, right?
You may proceed.

[caption #223]
The password is_

Oh, all right_

[caption #230]
Hey you!
Come to steal my cider?

[caption #231]
You thief!

[caption #232]
Took the old man's cider!

[caption #233]
The ship isn't going anywhere.

[caption #234]

Imperial troops are milling about.


Gotta jam without being seen!

[caption #243]
MAN: Of course. He left a couple of days ago after he heard Master Duncan was
slain.
He headed into the mountains.<EOP>
I heard Duncan's son, Vargas, is missing as well.
I have a bad feeling about this_

[caption #244]
<A4>: He must have gone to pay his respects to his mentor, Duncan_

[caption #245]
Scum!
You're Returners!

[caption #246]
What about <A5>?

[caption #247]
VARGAS: <A5> sent you, right?

[caption #248]
<A1>: Who're YOU?

[caption #249]
<A1>: You were shadowing us earlier, right?
VARGAS: Brilliant!

[caption #250]
<A0>: YOU! You're the coward who murdered Master Duncan!

[caption #251]
VARGAS: And how unlucky it is that you have run into me_!

At first glance I thought he was some bodybuilder who had strayed from his

[caption #257]
<A5>: Bodybuilder?!

[caption #258]
<A5>: I'll_take that as a compliment_

[caption #259]

<A4>: We're on the way to the Sabil mountains.<EOP>
<A5>: To the Returner hideout, no doubt?

[caption #260]
<A5>: I've been watching from afar, hoping that the world might regain some
sanity_<EOP>
At this rate, Figaro will be reduced to a puppet state.

[caption #261]

The Empire's going to pay for what it has done_

[caption #266]
King <A4>!
This way, please!

[caption #267]
Did you speak with Banon?

BANON: Is she the girl who can talk to Espers_?!
<A0>: Espers_?<EOP>
<A4>: Seemed the Empire had complete control over her.

[caption #276]

BANON: Carrier pigeons brought word that she wiped out 50 of the Empire's
best soldiers in a few minutes.

[caption #277]
<A0>: That's a lie!!!

[caption #278]
<A1>: <A0>!
<A4>: Banon! She doesn't remember ANYTHING!

[caption #279]
BANON: Stay where you are!

[caption #280]
<A4>: Banon!
We brought the girl with us.

[caption #281]
BANON: Perhaps you've heard this story? Once, when people were pure and
innocent,<EOP>
there was a box they were told never to open. But one man went and opened it
anyway.<EOP>
He unleashed all the evils of the world: envy_ <D>greed_ <D>pride_
<D>violence_ <D>control_<EOP>
All that was left in the box was a single ray of light: Hope.

[caption #282]
<A0>: __

BANON: We now confront those evils_<EOP>


And you are that last ray of light, our only hope_

[caption #283]
<A4>: Banon!

The Empire is arresting Returners everywhere.

We have to discover some means of fighting back, or_

[caption #297]
<A1>: Someone important to me was jailed by the Empire. I've hated the
Empire ever since_<EOP>
I joined the Returners when I realized the Empire was rotten to the core. I
wanted to make a difference.

[caption #298]
Someone dropped a scrap of paper_<EOP>
<C> Toss it in the trash.
<C> Leave it there.

Who left this piece of paper here?

[caption #300]
<A0>: But_I have no significant [other] in my life_<EOP>
<A1>: That's not entirely true.<EOP>
Besides, I'm sure there are people who feel YOU'RE important to them! They
are counting on you_

[caption #301]
<A4>: It's gonna be tough to talk you into helping us_<EOP>
If we push you too hard, we're no different than the Empire_<EOP>
So we want you to make up your own mind.

[caption #302]
<A5>: The only thing I can add is that you can trust my brother
implicitly.<EOP>
He's always been fair with me. You can trust him, <A0>_

[caption #303]
But don't you DARE tell him I said that!

[caption #304]

Will you become our last ray of hope?
<C> Yes

<A0>: But_ <D>
I'm scared_

BANON: I see_

[caption #308]
BANON: I thought as much_

[caption #309]
BANON: You're sure about this?

[caption #310]
I understand your unease.
But even as we speak, innocent lives are being lost_<EOP>
Please. We need your abilities.
This relic will keep you safe.<EOP>

Received [Genji Glove]!

We truly need your help!

[caption #314]
BANON: Please, <A0>_
I'd like you to take it with you.

[caption #315]
<A0>: What is this??? <D>

[caption #316]
BANON: If everyone works together we'll be successful.
Never give up hope!

[caption #317]
BANON: A lucky charm. Take it!<EOP>

Received [Gauntlet]!

BANON: I have a plan!
Please get everyone together!

[caption #329]
<A5>: Big brother_
Aren't you EVER going to grow up?

[caption #330]
BANON: What're we going to do?<EOP>
<A4>: We'll escape down the Lete River, and make our way to Narshe. I want
to see that Esper for myself_<EOP>
BANON: Right. There's a raft by the back entrance.
It's a gamble, but we're fresh out of options_

[caption #331]
<A4>: You're in danger here. Come with us to Narshe.<EOP>
You'll probably even gain some understanding of your own abilities_

[caption #332]
BANON: We've no time to dilly-dally. Let's make for Narshe!

[caption #333]
We'll handle things here_
Please leave for Narshe!

[caption #334]
Give our regards to Banon.

[caption #335]
The Lete River runs through some underground caverns.

[caption #336]
BANON: We all know that the Empire is using Magitek power in battle. The point
is, how has the Emperor created it?

[caption #337]
<A4>: I had <A1> look into the rumor that the Empire is forcing the world's
finest scholars to study Espers.

[caption #338]
<A1>: All the trouble in Narshe is over an Esper, too_

[caption #339]
BANON: Right_

[caption #340]
<A0>: You mean there's some connection between Espers and Magitek?
<EOP>
BANON: I can only recall one thing linking Espers with Magitek power_

[caption #341]
<A4>: You don't mean_<EOP>
BANON: Indeed!
The ancient War of the Magi_

[caption #342]
[No!]
[It can't be!]

[caption #343]
<A1>: My Grandma used to tell me stories about magical machines_
Could they have been true?

[caption #344]
<A4>: Could that ancient tragedy be playing out once again_<EOP>
BANON: It's just speculation_<EOP>
But historical studies have provided a number of conflicting and frightening
theories_<EOP>
According to one theory, humans and machines were imbued with powers
drained from Espers_

[caption #345]
<A0>: That could explain Magitek power_

[caption #346]
<A4>: We can only fight Magitek enemies with Magitek weapons_

[caption #347]
BANON: It's risky, but if we have <A0>_speak with that Esper, it might just
wake up_<EOP>
<A4>: I wonder if that's wise_?

[caption #348]

BANON: Who can say?


Regardless,
we need <A0>'s help.

[caption #349]
<A1>: <A0>_

[caption #350]
<A0>: I'll do it!<EOP>
<A5>: What nonsense!

Now I'm just a common traitor_

[caption #390]
<A1>: Let's go!
<A6>: !? You'd take me along?

[caption #391]
<A6>: Thanks, but no thanks. I can barely walk_

[caption #392]
<A6>: I'm grateful, but_
Even if you got me out, you'd never be able to protect me. No, I think I'm better
off here.

[caption #393]

Looks like we're in the clear!

[caption #406]
I heard they grabbed a famous general who turned traitor!<EOP>
She's locked up somewhere in this town.

[caption #407]
Never a dull moment_
Time to guard the passage under the big mansion_<EOP>
Oh, well.

Life is tough_

[caption #408]
I heard there are 2 secret tunnels under the rich man's house.<EOP>
One leads out of town, the other to one of these houses_

[caption #409]
Thanks to our informer, this town fell instantly!

[caption #410]
Rascals!
Knock it off!

Avoid the armored soldiers! They have no sense of humor!

Hey, lady_didn't you just bust in here wearing Magitek armor?

I've tried to get the people to side with the Returners, but_<EOP>
Anyway, why on earth have you come here?

[caption #422]
<A4>: First, how are your people doing?<EOP>
ARVIS: They all went_slightly berserk when the Esper was discovered.

[caption #423]
BANON: We believe this young woman is our only hope of reaching out to that
Esper.<EOP>
ARVIS: My people are dying to know what the Esper looks like.<EOP>
Maybe <A0> can help restore some order to our town_?

[caption #424]
<A4>: That Esper is either going to save us_or dig us an early grave_

[caption #425]
<A0>: When <A1> first helped me, he fiddled with somethihg right around
here.

[caption #426]
<A4>: Knowing him there's probably some secret switch in this rock wall_

[caption #427]

<A4>: Goodness_
<A0>: What's that_?<EOP>
<A4>: I think this's a security check point. If we follow the light exactly, we'll
probably be okay.<EOP>
If we make a mistake, the light'll surround us.
To proceed safely we must [tag] the glimmering light.

[caption #1081]
RAMUH: She is undamaged. But I fear she can't understand you. As for me, I
am Ramuh. The Esper, Ramuh.

[caption #1082]
ESPER!?

[caption #1083]
[But don't Espers live in another world?]

[caption #1084]
<A6>: But don't Espers live in another world?

<A11>: Espers_from other world?

[caption #1086]
RAMUH: That doesn't mean we don't live here, too.

Espers take a variety of forms.<EOP>


Sometimes we live here, taking the shape of humans.
You have nothing to fear from us.

[caption #1087]
[Why do you hide the fact that you're Espers?]

[caption #1088]
<A11>: Why hide fact you Esper?

[caption #1089]
RAMUH: Humans and Espers can't survive together.

[caption #1090]
<A1>: But my grandma told me that Espers and people once lived side by
side!<EOP>
Was that just a fairy tale?

[caption #1091]
[But grandmother once told me that Espers and people once lived side by side.

I heard that Espers and people once lived side by side.
Was that just a fairy tale_?

[caption #1093]

<A11>: <A11> hear fairy tale. People_Esper once live together peacefully_

[caption #1094]
RAMUH: No, that was no fairy tale. That was true.
We started out as friends.<EOP>
Then along came the War of the Magi_

[caption #1095]
War of the Magi_

[caption #1096]
RAMUH: It took place_long ago. Espers fought humans who were infused with
magical power extracted from Espers_

[caption #1097]
Fearing our magical powers would once again become a target, we fashioned a
new realm, and moved there.

[caption #1098]
About 20 years ago, humans stumbled upon it_humans who knew about
Espers, and the secret to Magitek power. <E$18><OP$12>

[caption #1099]
Thus began a hunt for Espers. Only in this way could Emperor Gestahl create
his invincible army. <E$18><OP$12>

[caption #1100]
In response to this, we erected a doorway, and threw the humans out.

[caption #1101]
RAMUH: Even as we speak, many of my kind are trapped in the Empire's
Magitek Research Facility, being_<EOP>
_drained of their powers_
I fled here to avoid a similar fate.

[caption #1102]
RAMUH: That's right, relax.

[caption #1103]
RAMUH: I sensed that <A0> was in trouble.
My magic_summoned her here.

[caption #1104]
[<A0>'s_an Esper?]

[caption #1105]
RAMUH: No, she's actually quite different.

[caption #1106]
[<A0> looks like she's in pain.]<EOP>
RAMUH: Her very existence strikes fear into her own heart.

[caption #1107]
[How can we help her?]

[caption #1108]
RAMUH: When she accepts this aspect of herself, I think she'll be all right.

[caption #1109]
[We have to do something!]<EOP>
RAMUH: Then free those of my kind imprisoned in Gestahl's Magitek Research
Facility. One of them can surely help her.

[caption #1110]
[If we find the Magitek Research Facility, you're sure we'll find your people?]

[caption #1111]

Your people are still there?!

[caption #1113]
<A6>: Magitek Research Facility_
Your people are_

[caption #1114]
RAMUH: Like a coward, I escaped leaving the others there.
It'll be the end of them_

[caption #1115]
[What do you mean?]

[caption #1116]
RAMUH: Gestahl's methods are incorrect. You can't drain a live Esper of all its
power.<EOP>
It is only when we are reduced to Magicite that our abilities can be transferred
in total_

[caption #1117]
[Pardon?!]<EOP>
RAMUH: When we transform into Magicite, our power can be relocated.
[Magicite_?!]<EOP>
RAMUH: That's what's left of us when we_pass away.

[caption #1118]
RAMUH: These are my comrades who fell while escaping the Empire. And I will
give you my power, as well_

[caption #1119]
[Why are you doing this_?]

But something's different now_
Troops have come seeking our magical power.

[caption #1464]
Blast it!
They've made it as far as the Elder's house!

[caption #1465]
GESTAHL: Aha!
We've finally found it!<EOP>
Those ancient writings told us of this world, and described the awesome
magical properties of these beasts!

[caption #1466]
GESTAHL: Grab them!
Riches to any man who captures an Esper!
GO!

[caption #1467]
ELDER: We've no choice_
We must do what we've been avoiding_<EOP>
MADUIN: You mean_
the magic barrier?

[caption #1468]
It's dangerous out there!

[caption #1469]
Soon the humans will arrive!

[caption #1470]
MADONNA: <A0>'s all right.

[caption #1471]
ELDER: Here's the plan. We'll cause a tempest that'll sweep all the nasty
creatures out of our realm.<EOP>
Then we'll seal the gate_
I am the last of our kind able to cast this magical seal.

[caption #1472]
MADUIN: But in your state, you might just_<EOP>
ELDER: Pass away_
but at least we will finally be safe.
MADUIN: Madonna__

ELDER: Let's do it.
We have no other choice.

ESPER: This is all because of that human girl!<EOP>
MADUIN: Nonsense!<EOP>
ESPER: I'm sure she helped the others find us!

MADUIN: Get a grip on yourself!<EOP>
ESPER: No! She's one of them!
Soon she'll be wearing our hide!

I finally feel I can begin to control this power of mine_

[caption #1492]
<A4>: So Gestahl must've known the secret of the Espers' power back
then.<EOP>
<A1>: And those Espers at the facility were grabbed during that expedition!
<EOP>
That means <A6>'s power came__
at the expense of an Esper_

[caption #1493]
<A5>: They can't get away with this! We have to strike back!

I was forced into the Empire's army. They made me do some awful things_

I feel a little down_

[caption #1556]
Most of the town's youths were led off to serve as Imperial troopers.

[caption #1557]
Our poor kids'll be back soon, won't they?

[caption #1558]
I heard there's a huge gate deep inside a cave to the east.

[caption #1559]
Time to put Tzen back together!

[caption #1560]
Our royal family was slaughtered by the Empire.

[caption #1561]
Thanks to you people peace has been achieved!

Some friendly advice! There's a weapon called the Guardian.
It can't move, but it's very powerful. Run, if you meet it!

How could an island float in the sky?!

[caption #1581]
They say there's something valuable to the east_
The Empire built a base there, and no one may enter.

[caption #1582]
I heard some Espers flew outta the mountains near the base and thrashed the
troopers there!

[caption #1583]
Yeah, thanks to that flying island, this town was shrouded in darkness!

[caption #1584]
We have to bribe the troopers to do business here_

[caption #1585]
And they're such TIGHTWADS!

They're raking in the cash!

ARVIS: We'll never beat the Empire without them.

east.<EOP>
We'll storm in at the same time, from the north.

[caption #1618]
BANON: We MUST get the Espers to understand.<EOP>
We have to establish a bond of trust between humans and Espers. Only one

[caption #1782]
GESTAHL: Hmm_
Well, let's let him stew in his cell for a while. Then we'll decide what to do.

[caption #1783]
<C> Why'd you start the war?

<C> Why do you want peace now?


<C> Why'd we have to talk to
your men?

[caption #1784]
GESTAHL: My desire for power got the best of me.
Now I've come to my senses.

[caption #1785]
GESTAHL: I feel we need each other's help at this time_

[caption #1786]
GESTAHL: Some of my men refuse to embrace peace. I felt they'd understand if
they actually met you face to face.

[caption #1787]
GESTAHL: With your permission, I'd like to talk about the Espers_

[caption #1788]
<C> One more question please!

[caption #1789]
<C> One more question please!
<C> Let's talk about Espers_

[caption #1790]

GESTAHL: I assure you, I have answered your questions truthfully.

[caption #1791]
GESTAHL: My Empire's been decimated by the Espers that emerged from the
sealed gate.<EOP>
They're acting spiteful. Unless they're stopped, they'll rip the world asunder!

[caption #1792]
<C> Yes, the Espers have gone
too far.
<C> But you unleashed their
power!!

[caption #1793]
GESTAHL: After the Espers went on their rampage, I knew I couldn't go on with
my war.<EOP>
I asked myself why I had started it in the first place.
By the way_<EOP>
About those questions you asked me_
which did you ask first?

[caption #1794]
GESTAHL: Right. Anyway, more than anything I want peace. That's my true
dream. I want you to understand that!

Care for a rest break?

I'm truly sorry for what I've done! Now I must ask for a favor_

[caption #1807]
GESTAHL: After they devastated my Empire, the Espers headed northward,
toward Crescent Island.<EOP>
They must be found_!
We must tell them we're no longer their enemy.<EOP>
After all that I have put them through, it is up to me to set things right.<EOP>
That is why_ <D>

I need to borrow <A0>'s power.

LEO: You! You're <A2>, liege to the king of Doma!
Please forgive me for not being there to stop Kefka_<EOP>
<A2>: __
That wasn't your fault.

<A0>: <A1>_
Thank you_

<A1>: The rest of you wait here. I smell a rat_

[caption #1820]

It's hard to trust the Emperor just like that_

[caption #1821]
<A2>: We'll stay here and investigate.

[caption #1822]
<A1>: Please do.
Leave no stone unturned!

[caption #1823]
<A4>: Right.
And you be careful!

[caption #1824]
GESTAHL: I truly apologize about the poisoning of Doma.
No one dreamed Kefka would use poison.

[caption #1825]
<C> What's done is done_
<C> That was inexcusable.
<C> Apologize again!!

[caption #1826]
GESTAHL: I'm so terribly sorry! Kefka's being severely punished, and we're
cleaning up the poison.

[caption #1827]
GESTAHL: By the way_
With regard to General <A6>_

[caption #1828]
<C> Was she an Imperial spy?
<C> <A6> is one of us!
<C> We trust <A6>!

[caption #1829]
GESTAHL: Kefka was lying.
General <A6> realized the war was stupid before anyone else.<EOP>
That's why she joined the returners. Any other questions for me?

<A8>: Yes. Thanks, Grandpa!

[caption #2007]
<A7>: Save your thanks for these people.
<A8>: Thank you_

[caption #2008]
<A7>: I guess our town's little secret is out now_

[caption #2009]
<A1>: Can everyone here use magic? What's going on here?

[caption #2010]
<A7>: This is_
<D>_the village of the Mage Warriors_

[caption #2011]
<A7>: Long ago humans used Magicite to gain magical powers. They came to
be known as Mage Warriors.

[caption #2012]
<A1>: But I thought they perished centuries ago_

[caption #2013]
<A7>: After the War of the Magi, the Espers fled to their new world behind the
sealed gate.<EOP>

They wished to live peacefully, without fear of being used by humans. They left
us here to fend for ourselves_<EOP>
But we were despised by normal people. Everyone felt we had begun that war_

[caption #2014]
<A7>: They sent people to hunt us down like animals.
There weren't even any trials_<EOP>
<A0>: Even though the only difference was that you could use magic_?

[caption #2015]
<A7>: A few Mage Warriors escaped and found their way here. They were our
ancestors.<EOP>
Our powers have weakened over time, but some of it remains.

[caption #2016]
<A0>: Look, if you're up to it, we could use your help. <D><EOP>
<A7>: So, you're after the Espers, eh_?

[caption #2017]
<A7>: Well, I owe you for saving <A8>. <D>I'll help you find your Espers.

[caption #2018]
<A8>: Me too! <D>
<A7>: I don't think so.

[caption #2019]
<A8>: What a fuddy duddy_

[caption #2020]
<A1>: But_where do we start looking?<EOP>
<A7>: Hmm_
<D>If they're here, they must be hiding in the mountains to the west.

[caption #2021]
<A1>: Why there?
<A7>: Those mountains have powerful magical properties.<EOP>
They say the Espers were created there_

[caption #2022]
<A0>: Maybe they're drawn to that place?

[caption #2023]
<A1>: I think it's worth a look.

[caption #2024]
<A3>: Don't misunderstand me. I just wanted my dog back.

[caption #2025]
<A1>: Going somewhere?
<A3>: I'll search for the Espers in my own way.

[caption #2026]
ULTROS: G'heh, heh_these shiny statues are all mine!

These'll get Ziegfried's attention!

[caption #2027]
ULTROS: Oh!
They're glowing!!
They're_beautiful!

[caption #2028]
<A1>: Hey, squidball!
Don't you ever learn?<EOP>
ULTROS: Uh, well they always said I was a slow learner_
but I eat FAST!!

[caption #2029]
<A8>: Hey! Did you see me? I was awesome!
Wouldn't I be more helpful than Gramps?<EOP>
<A7>: G_GRAMPS!!?

[caption #2030]
<A0>: I suppose it wouldn't hurt to have you along_

[caption #2031]
<A7>: I can't believe it_
<D>The Statues_!
<A0>: [The] Statues?!

[caption #2032]
The birth of magic_<EOP>
3 goddesses were banished here. In time they began quarreling, which led to
all-out war.<EOP>
Those unlucky humans who got in the way were transformed into Espers, and
used as living war machines_

[caption #2033]
<A1>: Some faint letters are carved on the back of the stone figures_

[caption #2034]
<A1>: Say, old man, what else can you tell us about these goddesses?

[caption #2035]
<A7>: They quite literally created magic, as we know it.<EOP>
<A1>: So, they're the goddesses of magic, then?
<A7>: You could say that.

[caption #2036]
<A0>: I can feel their power_
<A7>: The Statues are the source of all magic.<EOP>
It's said the Espers made these images, and put them in a very special
place.<EOP>
These represent power beyond all comprehension_

[caption #2037]
<A0>: Our Espers no doubt came to this island to bask in all this magical
power!

[caption #2038]
The goddesses finally realized that they were being laughed at by those who
had banished them here.<EOP>
In a rare moment of mutual clarity, they agreed to seal themselves away from
the world.<EOP>
With their last ounce of energy they gave the Espers back their own free will,
and then transformed themselves_<EOP>
_into stone.
Their only request was that the Espers keep them sealed away for all eternity.

[caption #2039]
The Espers created these statues as a symbol of their vow to let the goddesses
sleep in peace.<EOP>
The Espers have sworn to keep the goddesses' power from being abused.

[caption #2040]
<A1>: Phew_what a story.<EOP>
<A0>: If the Espers were attracted here by these statues, they must be around
here somewhere!

[caption #2041]
<A1>: Say, old timer,
what happened to the stone goddesses?<EOP>
<A7>: Legend has it that they're hidden somewhere beyond the reach of
humans.<EOP>
I'd say they're beyond the sealed gate_

[caption #2042]

<A0>: I wonder if the barrier that protects that place is generated by those
stone goddesses?

[caption #2043]
<A8>: Are these_Espers?!

[caption #2044]
<A0>: I didn't think they'd look so_ <D><EOP>
<A1>: Gramps, take <A8> and clear outta here!

[caption #2045]
<A7>: What about you?

[caption #2046]
YURA: Halt!

[caption #2047]
<A8>: What is it?
<A7>: I sense some immense magical power in <A0>_ <D>It_frightens me_

[caption #2048]
<A1>: I wonder if she's gonna go ballistic again?!

[caption #2049]
YURA: You're somehow different_
<D>I sense a familiar power radiating from you_<EOP>
<A0>: Yes.

[caption #2050]
<A7>: You're the Espers that fled through the sealed gate?<EOP>
YURA: As a rule, we are not allowed to visit to your world.<EOP>
We few had gathered near the gate, and were wondering how we could save
the Espers that had been kidnapped.<EOP>
It was just a coincidence that <A0> appeared when she did_

[caption #2051]
<A0>: I felt_
your presence_
through the gate.<EOP>
YURA: We bolted the moment <A0> opened the gate.
But once in your world, we lost control of our powers.

[caption #2052]
YURA: We completely leveled a city_and took some innocent lives_

[caption #2053]
<A0>: That's what happened to me! I lost all control of my power_

[caption #2054]
<A7>: There must be something in your world that allows you to focus your
power differently.<EOP>
You must use caution while in our world_

[caption #2055]

YURA: We are deeply sorry to have caused you humans such suffering and
pain.

[caption #2056]
<A1>: The past is history. The Empire seems to want to talk peace with you.
Why not come with us?<EOP>
YURA: They would forgive us so easily?

[caption #2057]
<A1>: Let's go to Thamasa and talk with General Leo.
<A0>: Right!

[caption #2058]
<A1>: General Leo.<EOP>
LEO: <A1>_you're back! And you've made the Espers understand our desire for
peace!

[caption #2059]
LEO: I am General Leo.
May I have your name, please?
YURA: I am called Yura.

[caption #2060]
YURA: We have done something inexcusable to your people.<EOP>
YURA: This probably isn't the time or place to ask for your forgiveness, but_

[caption #2061]
LEO: Speak no further.

It is we who owe you an apology. We hungered for your power_<EOP>


How close we came to reenacting the War of the Magi!!!<EOP>
YURA: We must put this all behind us.

[caption #2062]
KEFKA: I don't care for the appearance of this pitiful little hamlet_
So burn it!!

[caption #2063]
<A1>: I believe our job is finally over! I, for one, could use some peace and
quiet_<EOP>
<A6>: Let's return to Vector.

[caption #2064]
<A6>: Please, not another word.

[caption #2065]
<A8>: I'm too hot, Grandpa.
<A7>: Kids!!

[caption #2066]
LEO: Kefka! What ARE you doing?!
KEFKA: G'ha, ha, ha! Emperor's orders!<EOP>
I'm to bring the Magicite remains of these Espers to his excellency! Behold! A
Magicite mother lode!!

[caption #2067]

LEO: Kefka! No!

[caption #2068]
KEFKA: Shut up!

[caption #2069]
M.TEK TROOPER: General Leo, prepare yourself!

[caption #2070]
LEO: No.
I won't let this happen!

[caption #2071]
LEO: Kefka!
<D>Your behavior is dishonorable!
I can't allow this!

[caption #2072]
KEFKA: Hee, hee_!
How 'bout a little Magitek mayhem!

[caption #2073]
KEFKA: Now for a little Magicite hocus-pocus_!

[caption #2074]
KEFKA: Whoa! Yes, I feel some incredible magic power here, today! Wave after
wave of pure, magical energy_

[caption #2075]
KEFKA: I'd say you're all charged up, boys and girls_or whatever_<EOP>
Say, remind me to show you my Magicite collection someday! You might see a
few familiar faces!!!

[caption #2076]
KEFKA: First, let's neutralize your abilities.

[caption #2077]
KEFKA: Now, little Espers_
Let's see whatcha got!

[caption #2078]
KEFKA: This is ridiculous!
I had no idea you were such wimps! <D>Time to put a stop to all of this.

[caption #2079]
KEFKA: Eh?!
You wanna take me on?
Fine. Here I am_

[caption #2080]
KEFKA: Phew_
I think I have plenty of Magicite for the time being_<EOP>
that is, until I make my way through your precious sealed gate!!

[caption #2081]
It hurts_

[caption #2082]
Curse the Empire_Curse Kefka!

[caption #2083]
The Espers_are they all_?

[caption #2084]
MAYOR: I can only take some comfort in the fact that there were so few
casualties.

[caption #2085]
<A0>: General Leo_

[caption #2086]
<A0>: People only seem to want power. Do they really want to be like me?

[caption #2087]
<A0>: I_I wanted to learn so much more from you_

[caption #2088]
Interceptor!?
That's a nasty wound!

[caption #2089]

<A1>: We not only lost Leo, but <A3>, too_


<D>Curse the Empire!

[caption #2090]
<A1>: This'll have to do_

[caption #2091]
<A6>: He was so gentle_

[caption #2092]
<A8>: I'll go with you.

[caption #2093]
<A1>: Now I'm worried about <A4> and the others_<EOP>
<A0>: I wish I could say they were safe_

[caption #2094]
<A9>: We've been had!!
The Emperor is a liar!

[caption #2095]
<A2>: Thanks to <A4>, we escaped before anything bad happened_

[caption #2096]
<A1>: Way to go, <A4>!

[caption #2097]
<A4>: I got to know the gal who brought us tea.
After a while, she just blurted out the whole crooked plan.

[caption #2098]
<A5>: So_you finally hit pay dirt, eh?

[caption #2099]
<A4>: Watch your mouth!
There're ladies present!
I was a perfect gentleman.

[caption #2100]
<A1>: General Leo's gone_
<D>Kefka did him in_ <D>

[caption #2101]
<A2>: Sir Leo?! Gone?!
<D>What a waste_
He was their finest soldier_

[caption #2102]
<A4>: We need to rethink our plans. Let's return to the airship.

[caption #2103]
<A7>: May I accompany you?

[caption #2104]
<A4>: Who're you?

[caption #2105]
<A1>: He's one of this town's citizens.

[caption #2106]
<A0>: He's descended from the Mage Warriors of yore_
I think he can be a big help.

[caption #2107]
<A7>: We must expect the Empire to flex its new-found muscle soon.

[caption #2108]
<A8>: I'm coming along, too.

[caption #2109]
<A5>: Yeah, right kid!

[caption #2110]
<A8>: What?
Who is this puffed up aerobics instructor, anyway?<EOP>
<A5>: Kid's got quite a lip!

[caption #2111]

<A8>: Aaack!
I'm gonna paint your portrait!

[caption #2112]
Uwaaa! S_stop!

[caption #2113]
<A7>: All right all ready!
If you insist_
<A8>: That's better!

[caption #2114]
<A8>: What's wrong, lover boy?
<A4>: How old are you?
<A8>: 10_why?

[caption #2115]
<A4>: You've grown up entirely too fast!
<D>Lighten up, okay?!

[caption #2116]
General Leo_

[caption #2117]
GESTAHL: Fuwa, ha, ha!
Now THIS is power!

This, and my Magicite_


now nothing can stop me!

[caption #2118]
<A7>: The beginning of all magic_
<A0>: Those?<EOP>
<A7>: It is said that they somehow neutralized each other's power, then
sealed themselves away_<EOP>
<A7>: If the 3 statues should ever be moved out of alignment, the resulting
inbalance of power would_<EOP>
_rearrange the face of our planet_
<A0>: What?!

[caption #2119]
Quick! Back to the airship!!

[caption #2120]
<A9>: The Empire's after the sealed gate! They're looking for some statues or
something.<EOP>
<A7>: No!!!

[caption #2121]
<A6>: What's wrong, <A0>?<EOP>
<A0>: The island_
The world is groaning in pain_

[caption #2122]

GESTAHL: Oh, those silly Espers! To think they opened the gate themselves!
The Statues should be just ahead.<EOP>
If we can just get our hands on them, we'll have everything we ever dreamed
of!

[caption #2123]
GESTAHL: Come quickly!

[caption #2124]
<A9>: Quick!
Let's jump onto that thing!<EOP>
Only 3 allowed in your party.

[He's fine.
Come on, let's go!]

I only know we're here_
Maybe we're the only people left alive_<EOP>
CID: Since that day, the world's continued its slide into ruin. Animals and plants
are dying_<EOP>
The few others who washed up here with us passed away of boredom and
despair.

Find the stairs next to the stove. Down them lies your road to freedom.
Love, Granddad

[caption #2200]
Thanks for saving the child!

[caption #2201]
I was on lookout duty for Kefka_
But I lost my nerve_

[caption #2202]
Anyone who opposes Kefka is doomed. He uses his [Light of Judgment] from
high atop his tower to burn whole towns.

[caption #2203]
I saw it! Kefka used a light beam to burn the village of Mobliz, to the
east.<EOP>
Most of the adults there perished trying to save their children_

[caption #2204]
The [Serpent Trench] used to be deep under water.

Now it's above sea level.<EOP>


Some [Cult of Kefka] members have built a tower there_

[caption #2205]
Many monsters nowadays attack with [Zombie], [Petrify] and the like. Have you
equipped suitable Relics?

[caption #2206]
To the east you'll find the [Serpent Trench.] Further east you'll find the village of
Mobliz.<EOP>
Boy, the Light of Judgment really fried that town_

[caption #2207]
Head north on the Serpent Trench and you'll reach Nikeah. Ships still sail from
there.

[caption #2208]
Heeeeee_
I've never been more frightened!

[caption #2209]
My child's inside!
Do something!

[caption #2210]
Must have irritated Kefka_

[caption #2211]

There are monsters inside! They keep petrifying everyone who goes in to help.
You using suitable Relics?

[caption #2212]
We resisted Kefka, so he unleashed his Light of Judgment on us!

[caption #2213]
Hurry, or the house'll collapse!

[caption #2214]
<A6>: <A5>!<EOP>
<A5>: Hey! <A6>!
<A6>: Let's head in!

<A9>: Phew_
I don't know if I have it in me anymore_<EOP>
<A6>: What are you saying?!
<A9>: I'm just a gambler_<EOP>
I just want to be left alone_
This world is too chaotic for me. What's worse, I've lost my wings_

[caption #2448]
<A6>: But before the world collapsed, you fought with all your heart! You were
absolutely fearless_<EOP>
<A9>: That was then_
We can never have that world back!<EOP>
<A6>: You want to live in this world as it is?
No?
Then do something about it!

[caption #2449]
<A9>: Mwa ha!
All right_you win!
I'm starting to feel lucky!!

[caption #2450]
<A9>: Thanks_
I needed that.

Now, let's go visit Daryl's Tomb.

[caption #2451]
<A9>: __
We're gonna get us another one_ <D>
Airship, that is_!

[caption #2452]
There're still some people with vision, even in this world.
Like my brother up north.

[caption #2453]
Don't step there!
Give the seedlings a chance!

[caption #2454]
Cough_
This world's already on the heap!

[caption #2455]
I overheard your conversation_
I, too, still have faith in this world!

[caption #2456]
Hope_

[caption #2457]
Hope_
We must never give up hope!

[caption #2458]
<A6>: This person_
She was your friend?<EOP>
<A9>: Yeah.
She was a piece of work.
Nothing scared her_

[caption #2459]
<A9>: Could be anything lurking down here, so keep your eyes peeled!

[caption #2460]
DARYL: This experimental airship is probably a bit unstable_

[caption #2461]
<A9>: This brings back a lot of memories.

[caption #2462]
<A9>: Watch your step.

[caption #2463]

DARYL SLEEPS HERE

[caption #2464]
<A9>: You can't be serious!
What are you trying to prove?!

[caption #2465]
DARYL: If something should happen to me, the Falcon's yours!

[caption #2466]
<A9>: Nonsense!
I'll win the Falcon from you when I whip you in a race!<EOP>
<A9>: You'd better clear outta my way!
DARYL: Big talk, buster!

[caption #2467]
<A9>: There's nothing like flying!

[caption #2468]
<A9>: I put it in storage.
I couldn't bear to look at it.
But now it just may save us_<EOP>

The Falcon.

[caption #2469]
DARYL: Come on!

Stop lagging back there!

[caption #2470]
DARYL: Or do you like chewing on my wake!

[caption #2471]
<A9>: Listen to you!

[caption #2472]
DARYL: This time's for real.
I'm going to break every record!<EOP>
I'll be known as the woman who flew closest to the stars!

[caption #2473]
<A9>: Be back before sunset! I'll be waiting for you on our hill.

[caption #2474]

The wreck of the Falcon was


found a full year later,
in a distant land_

[caption #2475]
<A9>: I restored the craft, and then put it to rest down here.

[caption #2476]

<A4>: This is THE Falcon?

[caption #2477]
<A4>: I finally think we're gonna pull this off!<EOP>
<A6>: We can attack Kefka's tower from the air!<EOP>
<A4>: The Falcon's going to give us one last chance at that guy_

[caption #2478]
<A9>: But first we need to find our friends!

[caption #2479]
<A4>: Right.
First things first.
<D>For once I feel hopeful!

[caption #2480]
<A6>: Hey!
A bird!

[caption #2481]
<A6>: <A9>!
Follow that bird!<EOP>
<A9>: But why?<EOP>
<A6>: I_don't know_!
Something inside just tells me it's important_

in a back room
in the 3rd basement_

[caption #2531]
A Knight came through here recently_
He was amazing! But his heart was full of chaos_<EOP>
When he can cope with his pain, he'll be the mightiest warrior alive.

[caption #2532]
I used to be a thief.
But one day I uncovered a secret so awesome, I had to run and hide!

[caption #2533]
I'm a former thief. My old accomplice used to mumble this in his sleep, [To the
right of the treasure chest_]

[caption #2534]
I used to be a thief. I climbed the tower of Kefka's followers, in spite of the
danger.<EOP>
But I got hurt, and had to turn back after the first treasure room_

[caption #2535]

A spell ago, some oddball came strolling through here.


Kept callin' people [thou.]

[caption #2536]
I've learned a lot about our new world from the thieves and travelers that have
come through here.<EOP>
What shall I talk about?<EOP>
<C> (Narshe)
<C> (The Veldt)
<C> (Doma Castle)
<C> (Nothing, thanks!)

You know that guy in Zozo who says,
[This place is dangerous!]?<EOP>
He's the only one guy in that town who tells the truth.
Maybe he can help you.

[caption #2538]
Your own past can be your worst enemy. Friends_family_gotta let 'em all go_

Could that have been you,

You look so confused, maybe
you'd better go back home.

[caption #2540]
Recently Lola has been receiving a lot of letters.
Must be from that guy in Mobliz_?

[caption #2541]
LOLA: Look!
My boyfriend in Mobliz sent me all these flowers!<EOP>
They're all hand-made of silk. And these are letters he has written to me_

[caption #2542]
???
But wasn't Mobliz demolished by Kefka? Somebody else must have written
these_

[caption #2543]
Read the letter?
<C> Yes
<C> No

My beloved Lola,
We're still busy trying to rebuild this town_<EOP>
If all goes well I'll be able to come home to you soon_

[caption #2545]
_this handwriting_
It looks a lot like <A2>'s_ But where is he mailing them from?

Do this favor for Lola?
<C> Yes
<C> No

LOLA: Thank you.

[caption #2548]
LOLA: I hope his reply comes soon!

[caption #2549]
Silk flowers_
Beautifully made, too_

[caption #2550]
LOLA: I knew that these flowers and letters weren't sent by my boyfriend. I just
didn't want to admit it.<EOP>
I was lying to myself_
But I'm all right now.
As I read those letters_<EOP>
_the pain I felt in my heart became bearable_
I'm sure whoever wrote them has suffered greatly_ <D><EOP>
I wish I could meet him_

This is an outrage_!

[caption #2563]
<A2>: Seriously?

[caption #2564]
<A2>: I learned of that poor girl when I passed through Maranda.<EOP>
When I heard that she sent a letter each day, but never received any replies_
Something inside me snapped_

[caption #2565]
<A2>: As I wrote to that girl, I realized I was very much like her.<EOP>
I was looking behind_full of despair. My eyes were closed_
And then something changed_

[caption #2566]
I bumped into Sir <A11> in Maranda. He said he had to become stronger if he
was to face Kefka.<EOP>
He probably returned to the Veldt.

[caption #2567]
Dear Lola,
I am writing to beg for your forgiveness. I am guilty of perpetuating a terrible
lie_<EOP>
I have only now realized the error of my ways. I hope I can correct a great
wrong.<EOP>
Your boyfriend, who you thought was in Mobliz, passed away some time ago. I
have been writing in his stead_<EOP>
We humans tend to allow the past to destroy our lives.
I implore you not to let this happen.<EOP>
It is time to look forward, to rediscover love, and embrace the beauty of
life.<EOP>

You have so much of life left to live_

[caption #2698]
The world's so different now_

Just spent an absolute fortune. It's my largest painting yet,

I'll decide later where to display it.

[caption #2707]
An artist came from Zozo today. He wanted me to see his work. What a waste
of time.

[caption #2708]
Bought a new stairway lamp at the Item Shop. Expensive, but one flip of the
switch and everything's bright and cheery.

[caption #2709]
I invited over an artist from Kohlingen. About as talented as a bucket_

[caption #2710]
Something's happening to me.
It started when I had that picture painted_<EOP>
And I've started hearing odd noises coming from downstairs.

[caption #2711]

The diary ends here_

own life!<EOP>
<A8>: Huh?!
What are you talking about?

[caption #2719]
[Now_what was a monster doing in that picture?!]<EOP>
OWZER: It all started when I bought a stone at the Auction House.<EOP>
I took one look at it and suddenly felt I needed a portrait of Starlet.<EOP>
I asked several artists, but none could muster enough skill.<EOP>
It was then that I heard about <A8>'s amazing ability.
I brought her here, and put her to work.<EOP>
But while she was painting, that thing came along_ <D>
It must have been enticed here by that stone.

[caption #2720]
Where is the stone_?<EOP>
OWZER: The stone? <D>
Over on that bookshelf.

[caption #2721]
OWZER: Hey, not that.
That's priceless!!<EOP>
But_seeing as you saved my hide, I'll give it to you as well.

If we destroy the Statues_

<A4>: What'll happen?

[caption #2979]
<A6>: I'm really not sure,
but_

[caption #2980]
<A6>: The Espers, and magic, too, will cease to exist.

Welcome, friends!

How long are you going to let the destruction continue?<EOP>
KEFKA: I've tapped into the ultimate power. Observe_!

[caption #2987]

KEFKA: Such magnificent power!


You are like insects to me!

[caption #2988]
KEFKA: I will exterminate everyone, and everything!

[caption #2989]
People will keep rebuilding the things you take from them!

[caption #2990]
KEFKA: Then I'll destroy those too. Why do people rebuild things they know are
going to be destroyed?<EOP>
Why do people cling to life when they know they can't live forever?<EOP>
Think how meaningless each of your lives is!

[caption #2991]
It's not the net result of one's life that's important!<EOP>
It's the day-to-day concerns, the personal victories, and the celebration of
life_and love!

[caption #2992]
It's enough if people are able to experience the joy that each day can bring!

[caption #2993]
KEFKA: And have you found your [joy], in this nearly dead world of ours?

[caption #2994]

Yes!

[caption #2995]

You sound like chapters from a self-help booklet!
Prepare yourselves!

[caption #3008]
KEFKA: Now, for my next trick, I will make you all_disappear!

[caption #3009]
Kefka, you don't know what you're doing! Stop!

[caption #3010]

KEFKA: I command the greatest


power in the universe!
You are all helpless before me!

[caption #3011]
KEFKA: I will destroy everything_
I will create a monument to non-existence!

[caption #3012]
Life will go on!
There will always be people,
and dreams!

[caption #3013]
KEFKA: No!
I will hunt them down.
I will destroy it all!
Destroy! Destroy! Destroy!!

[caption #3014]
We will not allow you to harm another living thing.

[caption #3015]
KEFKA: Hee, hee, hee!!
But what fun is destruction if no [precious] lives are lost!

[caption #3016]
It's over, Kefka!

[caption #3017]
KEFKA: Oh!
But it hasn't yet begun!
And I'm giving you a front-row seat!

[caption #3018]
It's breaking up!

There's no time to lose!
Airship's just ahead.
