Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward

by Fedule

Part 84: [continued]

VLR OST: [Placidity]

As quickly as I could, I explained the second bomb and the memory card, and how we'd come to the infirmary in hopes that we could discover the contents of the latter.

Then stick it in already!

Go ahead.

VLR OST: [Portentousness]

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

Wh-What is this...?

Six rows, twenty-two letters each...

It looks like the odd rows use one set of letters and the even rows use another set.

In other words, the first two rows just repeat...


Is this some kind of code or something?

It doesn't look random to me... I think there might be a pattern, I just don't know what it is.

Was there anything else on there?

No, it doesn't look like it.

So all we get is this... gibberish.
Hey, Alice, you haven't said anything for a while. What's up?

Does any of this look familiar to you, Clover?

Um... what do you mean?

Have you seen something like this before?
Maybe during your training?


Ah! This is--!

So you do recognize it.

Listen in: [English/Japanese]


They call themselves the Myrmidons.

What are the Myrmidons?

Put simply, they're a bunch of thugs who are trying to destroy or dismantle most of human civilization.

So this thing we're looking at...

Well, they have a number of different codes, but I do think this is one of them.

Then the bomb...?

It was set by one of the "Myrmidons", wasn't it?

Yes. Well, I can't say for sure, of course, but it seems likely.


But let me start with this one:

I don't know.


How am I supposed to decode it? I don't have the key.
Without a key, it would take literally hundreds of years to decode.

What about you, Clover?

Well if Alice doesn't know how, I sure don't.

I-I see... Hm...

We can come back to that code stuff later. I've got another question.

Why do you know about this code?

You told me your job was to "eliminate enemies of the state" or something like that.
Just what the hell kind of a job is that?
I think it's time you told us what you do.




Why not?!

Because you might be one of them! You might be the person who set the bomb!

That's idiotic! Of course I'm not--

Really? And where's your proof?
For all I know, you're my enemy! I can't tell you anything!

I'm not your enemy!
I'm your ally!
I'm your friend!
I just want all of us to get out of here!
Just... please, tell us!

Please. We need to find out who did this so we can all escape.
But we have too little information. We need your help.

If you won't tell us about yourself, then just tell us about the Myrmidons.
What else do you know about them?


I'm sorry...
