: (Arthur's talk, and Garrison's report... When combining the information from both of them... All signs point to the third disaster having been caused by the Moonlight Butterfly...)
: (As evidenced by the Mountain Cycles, the Earth of long ago clearly developed nanotechnology.)
: (The Moonlight Butterfly must have been a system which used nanomachines... But, for it to hold enough power to remold the very Earth itself...)
: (The Turn-A was sleeping inside the idol of the White Doll... In Loran and Sochie's town, it was worshipped as a god... That could be because, having used the Moonlight Butterfly, the Turn-A became deified in legend like in Magus's tale.)
: By the way, Chiru, what have you been doing this whole time?
: I wanted to ask you something, but you didn't seem like you wanted to talk much...
: Ah, sorry about that. I was just thinking about something. What did you want to ask me?
: That place we're going, X-Point on the Eisia continent... What kind of place is it?
: What kind of place...? Hmm, I've never been there myself...
: Of course you haven't.
: I could tell its location from a map, but... A map! That's it...!!
: Wh-what's wrong?
: Chiru, could you call Birin and Ryouma and the others in here?
: Um, sure...
Some time later...
: Thanks. Okay, guys, have a look at this map. In particular, take a good, long look at the right side.
: Is there something special about this spot?
: Doesn't it look pretty similar to the shape of Mexico back in our time?
: Now that you mention it... So, does that mean North Ameria is supposed to be North America?
: Next, have a look at the left.
: This spot looks like Africa's western coastline. This means Gallia consists of southern Europe and northern Africa.
: I follow you...
: The oceans have dried a lot, but this definitely proves that Zora is our Earth...
: Our current destination is X-Point, on the eastern side of Eisia. On the map, it'd be right about...
: Hey, that spot's...
: That's right. Eastern Eisia equates to our old Far East Asia, and...
: So, the Lost Mountains in Eisia...
: They could be what became of Japan's EOT Facility...
: Arthur... You're the Innocent's leader. You must know a way to save Elche, right?
: ...Going by what I've heard from all of you... There's no doubt that Elche Cargo is receiving mental conditioning from the Innocent.
: But... I'm sorry. I don't know very much about that offhand.
: There's no way to cure her!? So, does that mean that it's pointless to even bother trying to save Elche!?
: Calm down, Jiron. Taking your anger out on Arthur won't solve anything.
: The root of this evil is Kashim King. He tried to have Arthur killed too, you know.
: No... As the Innocent's leader, I must apologize for the inhumane actions of my subordinates...
: Please, don't make that face. Right now, Queen Diana is also taking action to fulfill her own duty...
: I can't remain sleeping on the sidelines while everyone else is struggling...
: Jiron... If you want to get back someone close to you... No matter what obstacles you face, you must never give up.
: My father was once captured by the enemy, too. That made our fight tougher than ever before... But thanks to everyone lending their strength, we somehow managed to save my father.
: We'll help you rescue Elche. So, you can't give up.
: Jiron, he's right. I'm going to fulfill my duty, and you're going to save Elche Cargo from the Innocent's clutches.
: (.........) All right. I'll never give up!
: That's the spirit, Jiron. Say it like that!
: (......... Jiron Amos... When I look at you, I can truly feel it... The new human race, the one meant for us to hand over Zora to, has already been perfected...)
: She's been that way for a little while now.
Elche starts to take her frustration out on a nearby object.
: You're free to have a fit of the vapors if you like, but... It'd sure be nice if ya didn't scratch up this shiny new Innocent battleship, y'know.
: Shut up! A captain doesn't need to hear an adjutant's whining!
: Whoa, there.
: (......... This woman... I know I've seen her before...)
: Well, ya can pull rank if ya like, but... Gosh, it sure would be nice to see ya act more like a Cap'n.
: Like a Captain...
: Yup. Take this ship, fer example... Ya still haven't even christened her yet, have ya?
: The Calling... that has a nice ring to it, huh? Gentle, yet strong... Cultured, yet stubborn... I like it.
Calling (or Carr[y]ing if you're into stupid puns) is the name of Elche's father, In case you forgot
: Besides, it's good being new... Both for ships, and for people.
: Well, I never... A Landship, sure, but there's a little thing called mature charm that women should have.
: Don't you agree?
: P-please don't tease me, Missus!
: Shucks, don't call me Missus. Just call me Greta.
: If you have time for goofing around, get out there and search for the Iron Gear!
: I got it. Welp, I'm taking the Doran out for a spin, then.
: Report back to me, the moment you find them! (Jiron Amos... This time, we settle this...!)
