Riviera: The Promised Land

by Didja Redo

Part 34: Finale, Part 3's too powerful!
Ein! We need your help! Please!

I'm sorry. I failed you. I failed everyone. Hector won. There's nothing I can do anymore.

I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm-
Useless boy.

I am rage and revelry. I am fortitude and courage. I am the bloodied sword, the battered armour, the stalwart shield.
(Ein? Are you...talking to someone?) war. And I am the first of the race that you call "Arcs."
Why are-
Be silent and listen. The passing of my young descendant pains me as much as it does you. She was the last of us, our final hope, and as much my child as any other Arc...and now she is gone. And it could not be helped. I do not blame you for that.
But to call yourself her companion, yet kneel here and snivel over her death rather than doing what must be done? It is an insult to her memory, and THAT I will not forgive.
Understand this. Whatever feelings you had for Serene are immaterial. I care not whether she was a mere friend to you, or the only thing of value in your miserable life. You have no right to mourn her. Not until you avenge her.
Avenge my fallen daughter, and the Arcs of Rosalina! If you cannot do this, if you will not stand and fight, then you were never worthy of her!
Now rise, Grim Angel! Take up your Diviner and strike down this so-called "god", or I will hunt whatever remains of you in the afterlife!

(...what...what just happened?)

Ein? Are you back with us?

I am Ein, the last of the Grim Angels, and it is my duty to pass judgement on you. In the name of Riviera...
In the name of the Sprites...
In the name of Serene and all those you've murdered, you will pay for your sins!
I'll take that as a "yes".
So be it, Grim Angel. Come, and be returned to dust!
