Part 3: Update 3: EXPOSITIONUpdate 3: EXPOSITION
: Whew. I'm alive again. You couldn't have come at a better time.
: Wouldn't most people be more grateful? Anyway, I have to run an errand, so...
: Don't sweat the details! Plus, I'm broke, so even if I wanted to pay you, I couldn't.
: *Sigh* Just forget it, I'll buy more.
: Man, can't you take a joke?
: Oh um... I'm Luca Milda.
: Oh man, not good!
: What's wrong?
: I just remembered something, I uh, was asked to do some shopping.
Left the stove on, eh Iria?
: A-anyways, gotta run!
: Are you being chased?
Gonna take that as a yes.
: Boy, that would've been great to know a few minutes ago...
This sounds perfectly legitimate and above board!
: Uh, no, I mean...
: Hey! That kid has nothing to do with this!
: Luca, right? Hurry up and get out of here!
I'm gonna chose the cowardly option, because I don't like Iria.
Scripted fight. Easy peasy.
: I was probably just lucky, I've never been in a fight before...
: That power just now...
: W-who's there?
: You followed me this far, I told you I don't know anything!
: S-sensus? The same Sensus that waged war on the Ratio?
: Stay back! You saw my power before, the power of the Arch-Demon Asura sleeps within me!
: W-what's so funny? Are you stepping up or not?
Steppin' up. Them's fightin' words.
: Hey, come here!
Time to run!
: I don't know where to start, first off, what are you doing with those pistols!?
: My parents gave them to me for self defense!
: Anyway, I'll tell you everything, you're the same as me...
COMPULSORY SKIT TIME!
: And with that power... came these dreams...
: Dreams... just like me...
: In my hometown of Sania Village, there were other kids just like me.
: Our parents always warned us not to use our powers in front of people...
: Eventually, Mathias and her Arca religion thing showed up...
: Mathias demanded I tell her where the "manifest" is... but I don't know what that is!
: But Mathias knew about my power... that I could use the Devic Artes...
I believe that's "Heavenly artes.
: Devic Artes... that power I used earlier? That the church used long ago?
: Devic Artes don't belong on Naraka. They're the power of the gods from Devaloka, long ago.
: In other words, here on Naraka, it's the abominable power of the Fallen that everyone fears.
: Mathias targeted my village to get to me.
: They wanted to force me to join them!
: But what about the Compulsory Fallen Rehab Program? Are they exempt or something?
: I really don't know. In any case, my parents helped me escape, and I fought my way here.
: So what's the manifest thing?
: I really don't know. I guess it has to do with my past life though...
: P-past life?!
: What happens in our dreams. Mathias says that's our memories from our past lives.
: So that must mean this Inanna chick was somehow related to that "Manifest"?
: HUH? Whaaaat? YOU'RE Inanna?!
: Well, yeah? What about it!?
: I mean.. Well.. I'm Asura in my dreams!
: In Devaloka, Among the gods, I commanded the Sensus!
: And there was a beautiful woman named Inanna who I...
: Who I, um...
: I'm sure that Inanna lived happily with a lover like him!
: Anyway, I guess the first thing to do is to learn about that Manifest thing, right?
: Huh? Oh yeah, that's true...
: What could be worth attacking a whole village over?
: They said they wanted to use it to create Utopia...
: Just like you, Ir- I mean, Miss Animi...
: Hey. how about this-- come with me! We'll find the Manifest before they do!
: There must be other people who have memories of the Devic era, like you and me...
: That means they'll also be targeted by the Avatar Hunt.
: If we don't hurry, we might all get caught!
: (Eddy and Nico saw my power... they might report it...)
: That's true... I'll help out! Lets hurry, Miss Animi!
: My parents gave me this, but you can use it.
Iria joined the party, and we got a sword! Nice.
This is a pretty good place to stop, hopefully next update will be less plot heavy!
