Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward

by Fedule

Part 77: Immunoglobulin

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

You need to hear this.
The ADAM has finished scanning Alice.

What did it say?

She has also been infected with Radical-6.

VLR OST: [Anxiousness]

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

What's going to happen to her?!

Well, like I said before, there's only one way to cure Radical-6.
There's a special anti-viral treatment.
Do you know what immunoglobulin is?

Immuno goblin?

It's another name for antibodies. Some people have antibodies that can fight off Radical-6.
Those antibodies are the basis for Axelavir.


I thought of that too, so I went and took a closer look at them.

They can suppress the symptoms for a while, but they can't kill the virus itself.
The only way we can help Alice and Quark is if we can find some Axelavir.

But the pods will keep them from getting any worse, right?


Then what are we waiting for?
One of you, grab Alice. We're going to the treatment center!

[Music fades out]

Listen in: [English/Japanese]


Well, what is it?

Hold on. There's a name on the label here...
Axel... Axelav--

You found it, Sigma!
That's the one thing that can cure Radical-6!

999 OST: [Chill and Rigor]

Why did Quark have it?

Perhaps he found it earlier...

Earlier when?

We explored the laboratory.
It was on the other side of the red door.
I happened to notice Quark putting something in his pocket.

He hid it?

Whether or not that was his intention is unclear.
I did not have the opportunity to ask, as he collapsed immediately afterwards.
It didn't feel... appropriate to go digging around in his pockets for it after that.

To be honest, it had also slipped my mind. We were rather preoccupied with getting him to the infirmary as quickly as possible.

We have it!

Hurry up and give it to him, Luna!

H-Hey, hold on a minute! What about Alice?!

Does it really matter if she goes first or not?



The only way to administer this is with the injection gun.
And the way it functions, it uses a whole bottle each time you pull the trigger.

In other words, we can't split the dose in two or something.

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

Do you think there might be some more back in the laboratory?

No. Unfortunately not.

Oh God...

Just enough medicine for one dose...

Only one person can be saved...

Who should we give it to?

Alice? Or Quark...?

What the hell is this?!
There's no way we're only going to save one of them!

Then what are we going to do?

Do I have to spell it out?!


That's... Um...

[Music fades out]

VLR OST: [Sinisterness]

It's another name for antibodies. Some people have antibodies that can fight off Radical-6.

Replicator makes it sound like it makes copies of stuff.

So it's like a copy machine.

Yeah. Probably copies... IG. Whatever that is.

Any ideas?

Who knows? Ice cream by the gallon?

[Music fades out]

The IG Replicator in the laboratory! It's an immunoglobulin replication machine!

VLR OST: [Clarification]

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

In case there was any doubt, that was a Plot Lock we just busted through, hence the trophy. The last word is "Antibody". Way to ruin the pun, Vita UI.

It can copy immunoglobulin! Antibodies!
Luna just said Axelavir is made from antibodies.
That means we can make more Axelavir!

There is a strange device in the laboratory that says "IG Replicator" on it.
Clover and I examined it thoroughly when we were in that room.

Yeah. We never could figure out what it did, though.
