Part 188: Mission 47 (Rand) - Our Path - Part 3
: How could I have been face to face with Edel Bernal and not realized?
: Because her love for this world pervades her heart from the outside to the core!
: All she wants is to guide the world in the right direction as its ruler!
: If she has to lie, manipulate, and usurp power, then she doesn't have the right!
: Tch! I can't believe that broad had me fooled!
: If you're against Dewey Novak, then I'll take care of you, Gekkostate!
: She's working with Dewey too?!
: That's just what I needed! Youre 100% our enemy and I aint holding back!
: Amuro Ray, we still have use for you!
: Join me in Chimera and we'll let you live!
: I can feel his confidence and malice as pressure...
: Edel Bernal For her to make this man worship her so she's too dangerous.
: Come, Nirvash brat! I'll show you how powerless you are!
: No you won't! I have to get past you to protect Eureka!
: Enough about Eureka! My loyalty to BrigGen. Edel beats yours a thousand times over!
: We made great use of ZAFT! You have our thanks!
: Why you... are you using Chairman Durandal too?
: Our arrangement is mutually beneficial! Or don't you think he's using BrigGen. Edel in return?
: Dammit! We're not letting you have the Earth or the Plants!
: We put our faith in you and BrigGen. Edel... pledged to fight alongside you...
: And let me extend my sincere gratitude, both on her behalf and my own...
: But we don't need you anymore! I'll be the one to bring her dreams to reality!
Youre lucky this is pretty-boy Ryouma, Löwen.
: We fought together all this time, Cpt. Löwen! We believed in you and BrigGen. Edel!
: Then bow to her! She is the only one worthy to rule this world!
: She makes your beloved Diana Soreil look like a mewling child!
: Lady Diana's never manipulated anyone! If your General has to do that, she doesn't deserve to lead anything!
: How underhanded can you possibly be?! You lied to us and turned us on each other!
: And you played right along with my comrade Schlan's plan!
: But this isn't a lie! I will defeat you in open combat and bring your heads to BrigGen. Edel!
: You may be the Champion, but this is no mere game!
: You're the ones using people like pawns!
: The world won't just hand you the ante, especially not us!
: I appreciate you putting your life on the line for our world, alien!
: Step off, traitor! Marin's one of us!
: We won't let someone like you say a word against him!
: A bond of friendship that crosses time and space? Spare me the act!
: You can think that's what it is if you want, but we've looked death in the face together!
: A coward who put up an act of friendship would never understand what we have!
: Dammit! How could you lie to us like that?!
: This world is built on lies and those who fall for them, boy!
: The only things I believe in are BrigGen. Edel and my loyalty to her!
: It always seemed like everything we did was playing into someone's hands...now its clear why: we had a spy in our midst!
: You should have connected the dots faster! But now that I'm out in the open, that's where I'll crush you!
: Dammit! I can't believe I ever thought of you as a friend!
: Come on, you dirty spy! We'll show you exactly what we think of you now!
: Cpt. Löwen... so you were the proverbial thorn in the lion's paw!
: Banjou Haran, Schlan's plan would have worked if it weren't for you!
: That's enough out of you! We have nothing to say to each other!
: We'll shatter Edel Bernal's ambitions to pieces!
: Cpt. Lowen! How could you lie to us this whole time?
: Don't be stupid, Kouji Kabuto! In this world, the deceived and the weak are in the wrong!
: Damn it, fine! Then you'd better not complain when we kick your ass!
: What are you doing here, Garrod Ran? Your beloved Tiffa Adil is on the moon by now!
: Bite me! I don't need you to tell me to go save her!
: But don't rush too fast... we have a job for her to finish!
You know the memetic WRYYYYYY video of Dios voice clips from that Jojo game (if not, welcome to the internet)? Well, Löwen/Isshin Chiba shifts into that if you fail to pop his barrier.
Also, this wouldve been perfect if we had New Getters Benkei around
: It's quite a feat for Chimera to manipulate both us and the public.
: What Edel and Schlan have done is at a level far beyond your base rhetoric!
: The evil speak only evil, I see. I have nothing to say to cowards and criminals of your ilk.
: By my own laws, I pass judgment against you and your employer!
: Come with me, Singularity! I'll let you and your friend live as insurance!
: Not happening! I'll take being fooled by a beauty, but I cant stand being manipulated!
: Guess youre more of a misogynist than a gynophobe, Cpt. Löwen...
: But if you've sworn yourself to a lady like that, then you really don't know how to pick em!
: I WONT SUFFER YOU TO INSULT BRIGGEN EDEL, YOUR CUR!!
: I can't believe he tricked us into turning on each other...
: Hahahaha! What happened to Newtypes having the power to understand each other?!
: You couldn't even understand me! So much for the new era of humanity!
I will NOT be killed by the likes of you! This life belongs to her!!
: He's lied to us this whole time...
: How could you, Cpt. Löwen?!
: But now that you're against us, we're not holding back!
: Prepare yourself!
: Blah, blah, blah, BLAH, BLAH!! WILL YOU BITCHES SHUT UP?! I'll silence all of you!
: The hell? He's gone from being scared of women to full on misogyny!
: The only woman this world needs is BrigGen. Edel! I'll exterminate all the rest!
: You cannot defeat me with such a selfish drive. To arms, Löwen General!
We still havent seen Sol Gravions new Super Gravity Sword, huh? That needs to be rectified.
Rand also had stuff to say to Schlan and Ziene, of course:
: You refuse to control your emotions for an instant the mere sight of it makes me want to vomit.
: What, you don't get tired of putting on that act all the time?
: This is my lifestyle and I won't suffer you to criticize it.
: Looks like I hit a nerve. You're just bottling it all up, aren't you?
: At least let out a yell when you're fighting! All that pent-up stress is what makes you wanna do all that tricky stuff!
: You're a busy little lady, aint ya? Must be rough being a strong woman!
: Shut up, THE HEAT. I'm doing all I can to break free of my twisted fate!
: A carefree man like you has no right to criticize my decisions!
: Oh, drop the victim act! You might've been through a lot, but that doesn't give you the right to lash out!
: Yeah! Whatever your reasons, if you really wanna do this, then we'll take you on!
: Are you alright, Löwen?!
: Calm down, Schlan. I just played a bit too much.
: But I think this is good enough for today.
: These people will keep on charging towards their own death even without our help.
: Whats that supposed to mean?!
: Hahaha! Youll all meet your end amidst this fruitless battle, ZEUTH! It wont be long before you understand just how futile everything youre doing truly is!
: Theyre running away!
: Dont worry about going after them. We need to process what weve already learned.
: And, besides, theres still another problem to take care of.
: Hmhmhm...Im glad I remain I can enjoy spending more time with you.
: What, you get your jollies out of us trying to kill each other? How messed-up can you be, man?!
: Lets just say Im searching for the key to my freedom.
: And to acquire it, I must destroy you - the Spheres bearer.
: Whatre you talking about?!
: Well meet again, THE HEAT and in this world.
: The hell is up with him ?
We managed to pull through but everyones tired after this huge battle. Jamil suggests we get back to Talia and Bright and ponder everything thats happened.
Theres still the matter of the Enge and Kejinan having business with us and Adette wonders if they actually came here to pick a fight with us by their lonesome no, Kejinan says they actually have a request for us.
The Siberian Rail received news that Arthur Rank was with us and Kids really needs to speak with the guy. Wonder what thats all about
Some time later, our group finds itself aboard Kids personal train and hes just told us of the events that occurred in the Agate Crystal. He also informs Jiron that the OverDevil we defeated was incomplete like a baby when compared to what TRUE OverDevils are like.
Sara yells at him to not act so proud about that monster considering its captured Cynthia and is raging about the countryside as we speak.
Gainer demands to know why she was taken and Kids informs that it was because of her high Oversense he planned on using that to control the OverDevil but the thing simply absorbed her and moved on.
Gainer is pissed at Kids blatant irresponsibility with someone whos, in essence, his daughter but thats precisely why hes here: hell swallow his pride and ask our help to fix it.
He doesnt seem particularly remorseful to Jiron but Adette says the fact that the guys bowing his head to someone is pretty much an admittance that he screwed up bad she wouldve expected the dimensions to collapse before anything of the sort happened.
Regardless, Arthur (over a transmission) agrees that we cannot let the OverDevil run loose if its as complete as Kids said, the entire world is at risk of being encased in ice.
From what Arthurs heard, its OverSkill would enable it to freeze anything: not just objects, but also the very hearts of people. Kids hadnt expected the legends to be true and Gainer knows that Cynthias already been victimized by this ability.
Regardless, Kids says the OverDevil is currently hiding out, building its power, and is being served by Asuham whos been enslaved by its power: hes hired the Breakers who were previously working for Kids and is consolidating an army around the OverDevil (Gain isnt THAT surprised at his turn of events).
Ryouma is deep in thought nearby and, when Sirius asks, recalls how the demons were poking around the Innocents domes and wonders if they, too, are after relics from the Black History. Its very possible, Jun thinks, as who knows what other kinds of amazingly powerful things couldve been produced by that era.
All the more reason why we need to put down the OverDevil and the demons when next we see them.
Gwen wants to report the Overdevil mess to the Plants and Federation but Kids protests that the Siberian Rail would be blamed for the whole mess.
Thats why, Kejinan says, they were willing to forget the troubles we caused before and ask for our help and Jiron doesnt appreciate the guys inability to realize the danger theyve unleashed; Gwen agrees as this relic of the Black History could well destroy all of humanity, so this is hardly the time to worry about saving face.
Kids is forced to agree and tells us to go about this in any way we please: he came here precisely because he understood that the thing NEEDS to be stopped. Inwardly, Gwen ponders that the OverDevil is far too dangerous if all it does is rampage uncontrollably theres no choice but to destroy it.
Kids and his men will track down the OverDevil's exact whereabouts, believed to be in North Ameria, and call in the ZEUTH to finish it off (and rescue Cynthia, too, Gainer adds). Adette sighs that on top of our usual problems, we just managed to add two new headaches to the pile with the OverDevil and the Chimera Squad.
Speaking of Adette, Yassaba steps over and sees that shes even prettier than in the last time they saw each other. She chalks it up to having found a wonderful man and Yassaba can easily tell that theres no chance for them to start things over.
Adette remembers that that little girl, Eifa, would be waiting for her caretaker/adoptive dad to return. She guided Yassaba all the way through their Exodus but, with the world in the current state, theres just nowhere for them to settle down.
So, Yassaba figured the best thing to do would be to join the fight and if Adette likes it here with ZEUTH, he presumes he will too. Considering his volunteering to help us, Gauli will raise no objections towards the guys past.
Yassaba remembers Gauli from Yapans Ceiling and quickly pegs him for Adettes wonderful man. As both men trade handshakes, Gain tells of our recovery of his old Rushrod and says Yassaba is free to use it whenever.
He had sold its parts in order to fund his and Eifas Exodus and certainly didnt expect to see it again sounds like fate to him. Remembering the girls old prophecy of his path opening amidst an impasse, Yassabas once again ready to get to work!
And heres our final reward for completing the Rushrod secret: Yassaba joins our team!
Obviously, this is a Rand-exclusive secret. Yassabas got a strangely Super-esque spirit list (Strike, Iron Wall, Spirit, Fury, Valor) so youll want him to take a bulkier Overman like the Rushrod or Golem.
Hes another squaddie that can switch in to fight against mooks. He cant hold a candle to Gain but he beats the Gauli Squad people and, in the end, its a nice extra for all the mileage you get off the Rushrod.
Heres a refresher of the path we took to get him:
- Take the Galia Route in the mission 15 split
- Gainer, Gain, Gauli, Sara, Bello and Adettes total kill count is over 100 by the end of mission 18. Purchase the Scrap (OM) from the Bazaar afterwards.
- Purchase the OverCoat from the bazaar after mission 22.
- Yassaba joins automatically after mission 47 (mind, hell still show up here if you havent gotten the Rushrod but hell leave afterwards)
Now, back to the plot!
Location: Pacific Ocean Trinity City
Bright and Talia have been briefed on the revelation that Edel was the mastermind behind the Federation coup going by Löwens own words, its likely her goal is to set herself as the ruler of the entire world.
From everything we've gathered, the three real powers behind the Federation are now Paptimus Scirocco, Dewey Novak, and Edel Bernal. On the other side, there's the Plants/Axis/Revolutionary Army alliance, and then, also, the Sage Council remnants.
Heizaemon sees the infighting between humanity to be shifting into a three-way war.
: Alright, Bright, Talia whatre yall gonna do now?
: Im not the one to decide what the Argama or, rather, all of the AEUG will do from here on out.
: Lt. Quattro if you would.
: Hm I cant well refuse General Blexs last request.
: What do you mean?
: As of today, Lt. Quattro Bajeena is the new leader of the AEUG. Such was General Blexs will.
: That it was. Ive little experience on these matters but Ill do everything I can.
: Heh, thats quite the promotion, Quattro. Now you get to order Bright around some.
: And Id comply without a second thought.
: Please. My new position notwithstanding, the Argamas command lies with its captain.
: Still, its now your duty to lead the AEUG and Id like to hear what youll all do.
: The AEUG is ending its alliance with Zaft and will act independently.
: Th-then, youre actually going to stand against us?
: If need be, yes.
: Hmm does that mean youve no such intention now?
: There are many questions surrounding the Chairmans actions but I dont see a clear threat right now.
: The same cannot be said about Axis and the Space Revolutionary Army, though. As you saw in the Orb attack, theyre obviously hostile towards Earth.
: And you cannot bring yourself to work together with the Plants now that theyve allied with those people...
: I hope youll understand.
: Its your turn now, Talia...whats the Minerva gonna do?
: We are all soldiers and the Minerva is part of Zafts forces. So well rendezvous with the main army and await the Chairmans command.
: Then, we
: Inform the crew, Arthur. The Minerva will depart from ZEUTH and head towards Carpentaria.
: Yes, maam.
: You better not regret this later, Talia.
: Holland you might hate the military but I take pride in working with Zaft to defend my homeland.
: I thought this through and such is the decision I made. So I will not be ashamed of it.
: If you say so well, I hope I aint gotta fight against ya. Dont wanna go through that again.
: I feel the same way. I want to believe well be able to fight side-by-side again someday.
: Cpt. Gladys I wish you and your crew safe voyages.
: Thank you, Lt. Quattro. And I look forward to you being a wise leader for the AEUG.
: Well, then Arthur and I should be going now.
: What about Shinn and the others? What are they going to do?
: I dont think raising a big fuss over this would help either them or ZEUTH.
: I gave them all a bit of free time and, after that, the Minerva will depart.
: Understood. We wont meddle in your affairs in the meantime.
: Thank you for all your help. Please be safe, everyone
*Talia and Arthur leave.*
: So, thats how it ends
: I suppose it was only a matter of time, considering all our doubts concerning the Chairman.
: I just seriously hope we dont run into them out there...
: But what about us? What are we going to do?
: Logos movements concern me I think we should head into space as well.
: To s-space ?!
: And while were up there, the Freeden and Iron Gear could keep investigating the surface for the OverDevils hiding spot.
: Oh, Ill be heading into space too! Cotsett should be able to take care of the Iron Gear by himself.
: This aint a road trip, Elchi.
: I know that, Holland. But going to space means going to the Moon, too, right?
: Well, I also want to see the truth behind the Black History with my own eyes!
Wait a minute what the frig is this bull?! Someone put in the wrong tape!
No, I aint gonna put up with this and neither should you.
If youve been collecting those BIG SEED Destiny secret points - a.k.a. ZEUTH points - throughout the game, you might have seen that Shinns been showing some nice (previously nonexistent) character growth and it all culminates into this: you can choose whether the Minerva will go back to Zaft (ザフトへ戻る) or keep on fighting as part of our crew(ZEUTHとして戦う)!
This choice always appears in NG+ and subsequent playthroughs but, for first timers, you gotta go collecting these points:
- Setsuko, mission 2: Choose to subdue the hijacked Gundams (強奪されたガンダムを取り押さえる): +1
- Setsuko, mission 8: Alex/Athrun shoots down Sato: +1
- Mission 16 (Pacific Route): Kira is shot down: +1
- Setsuko, mission 29: Shoot down Kira and/or the Archangel: +1 for each of them
- Rand, mission 29: Shoot down Yzak without destroying ANY Zaft units: +2 (+1 if youve at least 3 Zaft squads alive when he goes)
- Setsuko, mission 30: Shoot down Kira and/or the Archangel: +1 for each of them
- Rand, mission 30: Do not let Murrue, Kira, Waltfeld or Enil kill any enemies: +1
- Setsuko, complete the Gibraltar route split: +1
- Rand, mission 36: Shinn battles Stella: +1. Shinn destroys Stella: +2 (-1 if Kira does it)
- Setsuko, mission 38: Shinn is shot down while Kiras on the map: +2 (+1 if you destroy Kira without letting Shinn fight him)
- Rand, mission 38: Clear the mission by shooting down Shinn: +1 (-1 if Kiras shot down)
- Mission 43: Clear the stage by waiting until turn 4: +1 (-1 if Shinn destroys Athrun)
So, lets say fuck that to SEED Destinys canon and have Talia make the objectively good decision:
: I confess that I, too, am not sure of whats just in this world or who I should fight against
: So, Id like to see where things stand with my own eyes. And Ill do so as part of ZEUTH for as long as possible.
: C-Captain ! Thats
: Calm down, Arthur. Im just acting under my FAITH authority, considering we havent been given any orders to return.
: As such, this decision isnt defying the Plants in any way.
: Right on. So, were in this together.
: Thats the idea. I look forward to keep working with everyone.
: On that subject, what should our next move be? There are many problems we need to deal with.
: I might have an idea.
: What is it?
: We oughta go with Norb to the Vodara Shrine, seat of the Vodarac religion. He says theres a hint on how to talk with the Coralians in there.
: Hm, and its imperative that we gather information on the Coralians ASAP in order to prevent the dimensional collapse.
: Very well. Everyone seems to be in agreement.
A decent bunch of things change with this secret route split (especially stuff related to SEED Destiny, of course) but the problem is that, as you just saw, those changes include shifts in the order of events and finales. This makes a side-by-side playthrough of both sides not only impractical but also terribly redundant.
So, with that in mind, weve decided that the best way to tackle this is as such: were both playing via the ZEUTH route and will make a straight shot to the end. Once the main games cleared, well post whats different on the other path before moving on to the Special Disk content.
This, we figured, is the best way to showcase the plot changes without having a path spoil stuff from the other or having to play through the same events twice.
Kihel comes in, having just arrived from Orb, and says shell be accompanying us: now that shes delivered Dianas will to the world, her next step is to be the Queens eyes and ears on whats going on.
Corin will be coming along to protect her as he would Diana herself and Arthur recognizes him as the guy who helped them with the Lohengrin Gate. Seems like he watched Kihels Orb speech and that triggered him into remembering his old mission, so he and Yassaba came to Orb to find her.
When Bright asks, he says his mission is to prevent the Black History from repeating itself.
Kihel says Corin was apparently put into cryo-sleep before the end of the Black History and he still retains some, albeit vague, memories of the time: The butterfly of destruction fluttering in a rainbow-colored sky thats what I remember of the Black History and what Ill fight to prevent., he says.
Elchis happy to have the last survivor from that era on our team and Bright makes several spare parts available for Corin to use in setting up a unit for his use.
As Corin happily leaves to do so, Jamil wonders if that butterfly he mentioned has any connection to the one in Tifas prophecy. He prays for her to hang on until ZEUTH can make it to the Moon.
: Okay, why are you giving me a ring?
: H-Holland asked me to !
: Hah, Im just teasing I can see he picked the ring just by looking at the design.
: I bet hes as red as a tomato by now.
: You know a lot about him, huh?
: Weve been together a long time
: Still, he never forgot about Diane - your sister - after she was gone
: Huh ?! Why would Holland
: Hes just that kinda guy
: He cant bring himself to forget the woman who left him hes a lame, stupid, clumsy man who knows only how to put himself in harms way for others
: He doesnt know here my sister is, either, huh ?
: Sorry, Renton for all the things he put you through
: No, I Im not mad at all. Even after everything, hes still my hero.
: And, Talho I think only you can support him right now.
: Heh you dont need to state the obvious, dummy.
: Well, OK then Im going to the hangar. Looks like we just had a new mech delivered.
: Dont forget: youre manning the shop at 17:00!
: I didnt. Its Eurekas turn today!
: Thanks, Renton you, too, Holland
: Lets both do everything we can for our child as part of ZEUTH
Our new toys a new LFO delivered by the Tresor folk: the Terminus 303 Devilfish. Its essentially the negative legacy of the first humanoid machines of their world, totally lacking in limiters.
So great is the strain it puts on its riders that drugs are needed for the pilot and mech to reach their full, otherworldly potential. Renton doesnt get why we brought such a unit over but Holland steps up and says he requested it, since it was just being kept in storage at Tresor.
Renton is uncertain but Holland says hes merely doing everything he can to help win our struggles even if it means risking his life. Mind you, he absolutely has no intention of letting some mech claim his life before he sees his child and, on top of that, hes still got a lot of to teach Renton about Lifting.
As always, Dont ask, earn it. Then, itll be given to you neither of them can forget those words.
Location: North Ameria New Earth Federation HQ, Edels Office
FYI: Scirocco and Dewey are speaking via transmission.
: Then, Ill head into space and spectate Lord Djibrils last days.
: Understood, Paptimus Scirocco. I leave the war with the colonists in your hands.
: And Col. Dewey, whats the status on the Ageha Project?
: Weve completed over 75% of the Orange bombings. It wont be long before weve located the core.
: Once thats done, well promptly shift our tactics and exterminate the Coralians.
: And doing so will halt the dimensional collapse and stabilize this world.
: Indeed and, then, the remaining humans will require a suitable leader.
: Paptimus Scirocco... have you any intentions of being said leader?
: Perish the thought. Dewey and I are merely helpers.
: Its my firm belief that society should be led by a womans hand. And I already have a pretty good idea of whos suited for that position.
: I see.
: Furthermore, it looks like Bloodmans also coming to space in what Id guess is a desperate bid to remain relevant.
: Ill let you handle him. Depending on the circumstances, an honorable death in battle can also be a powerful means to inspire the masses.
: Once the Sage Council remnants are dealt with, well finally have our showdown with the Plants.
: And, afterwards, well pool humanitys forces together and eliminate the extraterrestrial enemies.
: Well entrust the management of our timetable and control of the public opinion to you, Edel Bernal.
: However, I ask that you exercise some prudence. There cannot be a Third Break which could destroy the very world were supposed to protect.
: I understand...
: When next we meet, itll be time for mankind to ascend to newer heights. I wish us all success in our battles.
*Scirocco and Dewey sign off.*
: Yowza, you must be tired after all that, Lady Edel! Dewey and Scirocco are always so smug!
: Especially considering their lil coup only took off because of you and Durandal!
: Sheesh, Dewey wouldnt even have his Oranges without my dimensional tech and he
: SILENCE, MAGGOT!!
: You fool! Imbecile! Wretch! It was the oscillation bomb you built that caused the Second Break!
: Th-that was just a teeny, tiny slip-up
: And my position worsened because of it! Only your life can atone for your incompetence!!
*SLAP, SLAP, SLAP, SLAP!*
: F-forgive me, my lady Edel! Forgive meee!
: Dont you dare open your mouth, you disgusting vermin ! Because of you because of you, I am needlessly indebted to those men!!
: ME! EDEL BERNAL, SOVEREIGN OF THE NEW WORLD!!
*SLAP, SLAP, SLAP, SLAP, SLAP, SLAP, SLAP!*
: Ooof! M-more! Hit me more! DESTROY THIS UGLY OLD MAN!!
: I told you to be silent! Dont make that face that at me, filth!
: OH, I LOVE YOU! PLEASE STOP, LADY EDEL!
: Theeh, whats the status on Löwen and the others?
: Right-o! All three of them will be arriving tomorrow!
: Looks like everything went A-OK with that declaration of war! ZEUTHll be real worried about the Federation now!
: Everything is going according to plan. My moves are all perfect.
: Yes but is it really alright to call Ziene back from Asakim?
: That man provided us with the foundation for our dimensional technology and I allowed him to use our resources as compensation for that...
: But buddy-boy there might turn against us someday
: That threat is precisely why were now distancing ourselves from him and acting separately.
: Theeh, get to work and complete the Lemures immediately. Itll be the ace up our sleeve.
: And I cant cook up any more space-time oscillation bombs right?
: I allowed you to make the one as insurance for a worst-case scenario and that resulted in the Second Break. Dimensional Power is beyond mans ability to control.
: But, but it was just an oopsie and!
: That oopsie made Mercury and Venus disappear and changed the shape of all of this worlds continents!
: F-Forgive me, Lady Edel!
: Leave Dewey to worry about the dimensional collapse and just focus on the Lemures.
: Come now, be proud, Theeh. Ive entrusted the completion my throne as the sovereign of this world to you.
: Heehee !
: Indeed, I wont hand this world over to anyone not Scirocco, not Dewey, Diana, Durandal, aliens or relics of the Black History
: For everything exists only to be ruled by me, Edel Bernal.
Well lets check the bazaar!
We find Garrod looking to sell that makeup kit he bought Tifa way back when. Sochie wonders if that means hes given up on finding her again but, no, hes looking to sell it in order to get something for when she returns.
As before, the makeup kit is still a bit early for her at her age, so Garrod wants something she can enjoy right away. Rentons happy to see his positive attitude and Garrod knows staying all depressed wont bring Tifa back any sooner, so hell keep her in his thoughts and keep going onwards.
Carris and Enil approve and shes even willing to help him pick his present. Frustrating though it might be for Enil, shes willing to do it in order to see Garrods smile.
Corins old Eagail is up for sale (hes using a modded Kapool by default) as well as another Re-GZ. We snag them both as well as:
- Rands secret item #1 5th step: Purchase the Bouquet of Flowers
Back in the Freeden, Pala is very impressed with the flowers and is sure that Tifa, like any other girl, will love this beautiful gift.
Kid asks if the flowers wont wither away before the girl comes back but Enil tells him not to worry as these are specially preserved flowers. This means, Garrod explains, that they underwent a process to make sure theyll stay pretty for a very long time.
So, whatre ya gonna tell her when you meet? My feelings are eternal, just like these flowers beauty or something?, Kid smirks but Garrod says thatd be way too embarrassing.
Still, it seems to Gainer and Renton that he will actually try to think of something romantic to say and Pala and Enil are starting to feel a bit jealous.
Hold on, Tifa Im coming for you and Ill have these flowers handy to welcome you back , he thinks.
