Fei, hang in there!
[Scene fade in on the floor of the cubed room. Fei is sitting on the floor.
Camera on Fei's side. Bart and Billy stand on his opposite side. Citan stands in
front of him. Fei stands up. He shakes his head.]
"Fei, you're conscious? Now! Let's go!"
"............ Y... you traitor!!"
[Fei runs up directly to Citan. Camera rotate to side view. Bart and Billy
run in and grab Fei from both sides.]
"S, stop! Fei!"
"Don't stop, Bart!! He betrayed us! He betrayed us and Elly!"
"Stop! Fei! It's your mistake!"
[Fei shakes his head three times, struggling against his friends' grip.]
"Let go! Lemme go!"
[Fei shakes his head four more times and struggles harder.]
"Calm down, Fei!
Bart isn't lying, Citan is the one who helped
[Fei turns to Billy. Billy backs back up a few feet.]
"Hmph... If Billy says it you listen..."

shakes his head.]
"Listen very carefully!

That was my duty. As a result, I had no choice
but to deceive you. Please forgive me."
[Citan looks down.]
"I see how it is..."
I myself had a matter that had to be verified in this
"I'll tell you that after we escape from here.
It is something
you must know."
[Scene cut to above Fei on the side. Bart walks up between Billy and
"By the way, Citan. You did remove Fei's Limiter, didn't you?"
"... What? Y... yes, of course... That is..."
"Alright then. Let's get out of here!"
[Fei walks up a step.]
"Wait! What happened to Elly? Weren't you with her?"
"Elly was taken to Krelian's research lab. It could not be
I am sorry."
"Why only Elly...?"
[Citan assumes thinking mode.]
"I do not know...
But one thing bothers me... When Krelian took
I had a chance to acquire Elly's cellular information.
I analyzed it
and found something very interesting... Excuse me, I mean... unusual.

"There's no Limiter? Isn't that because Elly is from Solaris?"
"Even Solaris citizens have a Limiter implanted when they are
There are exceptions for certain people like myself and
whose Limiters can be removed later on through the treatment such as
the one I did for Bart.
But you must have permission from the Ministry to do
"Is that why... Elly...?"
"There must be more to it than that. I don't know the reason,
Krelian is so absorbed by her data."
[Scene cut to behind Citan on the side.]
"I don't care what the reason is! For now,
let's help Elly and get
out of here fast!"
If we mess up here, I put those guys who went to
help Elly's parents in danger."
[Billy walks up a step.]
"Citan, we're going to Krelian's private research lab as
We'll meet up at the rendezvous point."
"What about doc...?"
[Citan looks up and drops his arms.]
"There is still something left to be done. I will go destroy the

"Doc! A sword...?"
[Citan turns to Fei and looks down.]
"... Yes. Yui gave it to me as I was leaving.
I used to use it
before I met her. For a long time I vowed not to use it for killing
But now is not the time to contemplate morals. It is not fair for me
to be the only 'innocent' one."
[Citan looks up.]
"... I see...... But..."
"You're always so mischievous, doc..."
"It is in my nature. I am sorry, forgive me."
[Citan nods slowly. Then he walks off just off screen. Bart turns towards
"Yo! Citan! Let me handle Fei and Elly's situation!
Now that the
Limiter is removed, Solaris doesn't stand a chance!"
[Bart nods. Citan turns back to Bart from just off screen.]
"Oh, yes! By the way, young one, about the effects of removing the

That is... the subconscious fear and veneration for

Basically, you will be able
to battle against them without any fears or hesitations.
It is not that you

"A... are you serious...?"
[The door opens off screen. Scene fade.]
[Scene opens on a passageway. Fei, Bart and Billy proceed through to the
other side. Fei stops. Bart and Billy walk up to a manhole. Camera behind

"Elly!! ...... You okay?"
"Fei...... Yes... yes, I'm fine."
[Elly walks off the table and stands up. She shakes her head. Bart turns to
them after a moment. Camera rotate in to above and in front of Bart on the side.
Billy is on his right, kneeling, examining Krelian's machines, looking the
"Sorry to interrupt you two,
but this is not the time for a
[Billy stands up and turns towards everyone.]
"Quickly, this way."
[Krelian's elevator flies up fast and locks on the ceiling. Billy opens a
manhole underneath where the floor was. Scene fade slow.]
[Scene opens on a large Gate generator. Jessie stands on the platform next to
it, continuing to fire on it with his gun. Some bullets are being fired off in
their direction as well. Citan is looking at Jessie from a slightly lower level
on the platform. Camera behind Citan on the side. Jessie stops shooting and
brandishes his shotgun. Citan nods, assumes thinking mode and then looks up. He
continues to do this.]
"What took you so long!? I've only got so many bullets!
and blow them away!"
[Citan stops. Jessie goes back to returning fire.]
"I am sorry. I have other matters to attend to."
"... What the hell are you doing?"
[Citan assumes thinking mode.]
"To His Majesty's..."
[Jessie brandishes his shotgun again. Citan goes back to his rotation of
nodding, assuming thinking mode and looking up.]
"You mean the Emperor...? Are you sure, Hyuga...?"
[Citan stops in thinking mode. Jessie starts returning fire again.]
"Yes. His Majesty understands the situation.
... He says to leave
it up to 'them'..."
"There! It is done!! Sir!!"
[Jessie stops and turns to Citan. All firing ceases.]
"... Yeessss! We're outta here!! ... Huh!?"
[Jessie turns back. Scene cut to behind Jessie at a short distance. Ramsus
walks in the far door. Camera pan in closer to Ramsus as he walks up to the edge
of the opposite platform. The generator begins a constant hum.]
"Where is he...? Hyuga..."
[Citan runs up to beside Jessie with a space between them.]
"So... you too... you are also betraying me."
"Kahr, we are just in different situations.
I did not mean to
betray you. I decided to stick with Fei's group."
[Ramsus takes a quick step up.]
"Did you say 'Fei'!?
You too... are on his side... I'll never
forgive you! NEVER!"
"Kahr, you're an enemy but why are you so attached to one
You weren't like that before!"
"Shut up! I've got to get him with my own hands...
And all of
you working with him are my enemies!
Enemies stealing 'my things'! Enemies!
[Jessie turns to Citan.]
"Hey, we're going!
I don't know what went on, but I don't have
time to deal with him now!"
[Citan turns to Jessie.]
"... I see..."
[Citan turns back to Ramsus. Then he turns and flees. Jessie turns to Ramsus.
Then he flees also. An explosion rocks the room. Pan back as the generator
explodes in red flame in front of Ramsus. Pan back to full room shot.]
[Fade to white.]
[Scene opens in another passageway. Fei, Bart, Billy and Elly are there. They
proceed to the far end and find a door and enter it. Scene change. Stop

Medena! Hammer is also there. Camera above Emeralda on the side.]
"Oh, that's Fei!! Fei's Kim is here!!"
[Elly turns to see Erich and Medena.]
[Elly walks up to her parents and looks down. They turn to her.]
[Rico turns to the group.]
"You should thank Hammer!
Hammer got your parents at the right
time. Right, Hammer!?"
[Rico turns to Hammer. Hammer turns to Rico.]
"Y, yes... Yes... exactly..."
[Elly looks up at Hammer. Medena turns to Hammer.]
"T, thank you, Hammer."
[Erich turns around to face Hammer.]
"We'd like to thank you, too. I never thought I'd see my daughter
Thank you, Hammer."
[Camera pan over to reveal Citan and Jessie, who's brandishing his

"... Okay. Please do not overdo it."
"Yeah, I know."
[Erich turns to Elly.]
"Elly, Medena... See you again."
[Medena turns to Erich.]
"Dear... Please be careful..."
[Elly turns to Erich.]
[Erich leaves. Fei goes around talking to people.]
"I'm not in giant form so it leaves something chu be desired."
"Fei's Kim, let's go together! Let's go!"
"I have to get my mother and father to a safe place quickly...!"
"Fei, now we're in the same boat as you."
"Those morons in Solaris... Hope they've learned their lesson."
"H, h, hurry, run away... Yeah, run away.
[Hammer does his thing again.]
Better make proper preparations before you flee, so...

[Fei buys stuff.]
"Fei, let us hurry!! They will find us here easily!"
"This country wasn't like this long ago... I think...
maybe I was just too young."
[Fei, Bart and Billy leave the others and proceed to navigate through the
maze to the end. Scene change.]
[Scene opens on a large hangar area. The rest of the group from before except
for Erich is gathered around there. Fei walks around to them all.]
"Exit! Exit! Exit!"
"Whew, the sky is blue..."
"The hangar is just over there."
"All right! Almost there, Hammer!"
"Here I am. I came all the way..."
"This is the last of the last. Don't let your guard down yet!"

[Scene opens on the exit to a suspension bridge, the very same one Sigurd
deserted Ramsus on (see Chapter 16). Camera above and in front of Fei at a large
distance. Behind him are Hammer and Elly. Medena is parallel to Fei. Rico is in
front of Medena. Citan, Bart, Billy and Chu-Chu form another group at the lead.
But... Hammer has a gun pointed at the group and has Elly by the hand! Fade
[Camera pan in towards Hammer. Scene cut to side view of Hammer with Fei just
on screen. Elly is obscured by Hammer.]
"I'm asking Miss Elly to return with me!!"
[Elly struggles against Hammer's grip.]
"W... what are you doing? Hammer?"
[Elly struggles again.]
"Don't move! I'm serious!!"
[Fei takes a step towards Hammer. Hammer quickly jumps back with Elly still
in his grasp.]
"Don't be silly! What happened? Hammer!?"
"I promised to a man named K... Krelian.
He won't 'change it' if
Miss Elly is returned..."
[Begin music: "Tears of the Stars, Hearts of the People"]

I don't have the strength like bro, or the smarts like the doc!"
"I, I know... everyone thinks of me as some annoying
who talks too much... I know that..."
[Hammer walks a step towards the group. Rico shakes his head.]
"I'm different from you all! I'm not special like you!
'normal' guy like me has no choice but to do this!!"
[Medena starts to approach Hammer. Scene cut to behind Medena on the side as
she walks to in front of Hammer. Camera pan towards Hammer and up a bit. Elly
turns to Hammer. Hammer jumps twice quickly and trains on Medena.]
"D... don't move!! Stop! Stop!"

"Elly, slowly come here.
Don't worry. I'll protect you no matter
"Elly, come here. It's alright."
[Elly walks slowly over to Medena.]
"... No! Don't move! No! No!"
"It's alright, Elly."
[Medena walks in front of Elly, blocking Hammer from her. Elly turns to
Medena. Scene cut to behind Fei and Rico. Elly walks a step towards Fei.]
[Elly walks straight up to Fei. Hammer tries to move around Medena, but she
blocks his path.]
"... No!! Don't go! No... no...!"
"... Don't... Don't go... don't..."
[Scene cut to behind Elly. A shot rings out! Yellow flash. Elly turns around
immediately. Fade scene to red.]
[Begin music: "Ominous"]
[Scene cut to side view of Hammer and Medena. Medena falls to the floor face
first. Hammer moves towards Medena with his gun still trained on the others and
"... Hya... hya... Hya-a-a-a-a-a... a... a..."
[Hammer sheathes the gun, backs up slowly and turns away.]
[Hammer flees. Elly runs in on the side of Medena opposite camera and turns
towards camera. She kneels.]
"... Mother...... mo... th... er..."
[Scene cut to above Fei on the side.]
[Camera pull away and up from the scene. Scene fade.]
[Scene fade in on the hangar bridge as normal. A blue light beam is seen and
the masked woman from Kislev (see Chapter 17) beams in. Scene cut to in front of
her on the side. Another light beam, as on her side beams in none other than
Grahf! Scene cut to in front of the deadly duo. Camera pan back to in front of
Fei and Rico.]

and the feet turn around to face them.]
[Scene cut to behind the Executioner on the side. Elly is now up with Fei.
Erich speaks from the Gear's cockpit!]
"I'll take care of this. Everyone, escape now!"
[Begin music: "Lost and Broken Heart"]
"Hahaha... You both dote on your child..."
[A bright white, black and blue ball of energy is released from the
Executioner's body, which becomes enveloped in a red aura. Suddenly, the Gear
begins to malfunction and the midsection glows orange and red as if on fire!
Energy waves of a reddish color flow towards the glowing center.]
[The Gear begins to shudder violently.]
"E... Elly... Go... now...
Elly, no matter what happens, believe
in yourself and go on.
We'll be happy to help anyway we can. That's the least
I can do to make it up to you...
Elly... You're Medena's daughter, my
daughter, no matter what. So..."
[Scene cut to behind Elly. The Gear rocks with an explosion and black smoke
flies out of it. It starts to descend past the bridge and falls out of sight. A
yellow explosion is seen.]
"Oh, have I overdone it?
You had no time to say goodbye.
But, don't worry. I'll let you meet again on the other side..."
[Elly turns in the direction the Gear fell.]
"......... How could you do that...... to my father!"
[Elly's body becomes enveloped in a blue aura suddenly! She turns towards the
duo. Camera pan in towards Grahf and Executioner.]
"... To have that much Ether control in a non-awakened state.
[The scene fades white with the release of Ether power from the Executioner's
[Scene cut to above and behind Fei close up. He is the only one who does not
seem to be affected.]
[Fei turns around to his friends.]
"Ggh...! Elly... everyone..."
[Heartbeat sound. It repeats five more times and fades. Scene fade/switch to
black. The pendant sound is heard again. Fei is in the black background. The
red-haired kid stands behind him a short distance. The pendant swings and
continues to sound at the height of its axis. Begin fast heartbeat sound.]
Hee hee hee...
... Just keep sleeping.
[Scene fade to white. Stop heartbeat sound.]

repetitive alarm begins to sound. An operator turns to Sigurd.]
Sir!! The Gear's moving by itself in the hangar...
[Sigurd turns to his right. The bridge begins to flash red on and off.]
"What? More details!"
[Scene fade to white.]
FMV 13: Transformation
[Scene opens on the Gear Hangar in the Yggdrasil,
close up of Weltall. Its eyes light up and it takes some slow steps out of its
docking area. It then proceeds to spread its arms, and its color changes slowly
from blue to red. Its head, arms and sides change shape and size, and it morphs
into a red gear with bluish wings... the same Gear that Id (see Chapter 35) was
driving! It then flies out of the hangar through the ceiling, making its own
[----END FMV 13----]
[White screen. Fade in to distant shot of Solaris. Id's Gear is seen flying

He came all this way, just
to be killed... ugha-a-a-a-a-a-!!"
[Scene fade to white. Scene change.]
[Scene opens on the hangar bridge, but now a section is missing as if it had
been ripped out like a string. Some small smolders and smokes are seen. The
Executioner is still there, but Grahf is not. Krelian has taken his place.
Camera above the Executioner at a great distance, on the side. Krelian looks at
"There he was..."
"Yes, it's clear.
It's nothing like the half-assed stuff
we've dealt with before."
[Scene cut to in front of the Executioner on the side. Krelian is looking
towards the bridge now. A beam envelopes the Executioner, and the Executioner
changes into Miang!]

"His feelings haven't changed over the years.
Maybe you have

"Hmph, don't be stupid.
By the way... what about Ramsus?"
"You want him to bring her back? Too late. Kahr has left

He probably made it easier to control it...
"How can you continue to fight without a chance of winning..."
[Miang turns back towards the bridge.]
"Isn't that what you want? Though I induced you to feel that
But, we're almost there. Our only actual example of success. Let's
take good care of him."
"What her true intentions are... I don't even know."
"We're going. This place will soon be gone."
[Krelian turns around and leaves. Miang turns around.]
"I agree. We should do Kahr a favor and save him... shouldn't
[Miang walks off. Scene change. Black screen.]
[A Gear in flight is heard.]
Elly! Are you OK? Elly!
[Scene opens in Seibzehn's hand. It is flying prostrate near Solaris, which
is still enveloped in Ether light. Citan, Bart and Elly are riding in Seibzehn's
hand. Elly is leaning on her knees. The others turn to her. Pan back away to
full shot of Seibzehn, with Maria on the head.]

"Solaris!! ... That red Gear!?
What is going on, Citan? What's

"I'm not lying...
We saw it with our own eyes. The very sight of
him turning into Id..."
[Scene fade to white.]
[Scene fade in on the hangar bridge before it was destroyed. Fei stands at
the opposite end. Camera above and in front of Fei at a great distance. The
Ether energy still lights up the bridge. Camera pan into Fei with a continuous
steady heartbeat sound.]
"... Stop! Stop!!"
[Scene flash to red tint. Fade noises slowly.]
[Fei bends down and puts his hands behind his head. A death scream sound is
heard. Fei stands up straight. Pause several seconds. Heartbeat sound. Heartbeat
sound again, and scene cut to behind Fei on the side at the same time. Heartbeat
sound, and scene cut to above and front of Fei, close up. Heartbeat sound, scene

FMV 14: Total Destruction
[A wall on Solaris' side explodes and Id's Gear

city becomes enveloped in flame.]
[----END FMV 14----]
[Scene opens on the Yggdrasil bridge, red tinted visual alarm still there.
Camera above and in front of the wheel. Bart walks up to the wheel next to
Maison and Sigurd. Citan follows. Elly's feet are seen just off screen.]
"Quick! Take cover!
The Solarian based energy descending from the
upper atmosphere is equivalent to a reactive weapon!"
FMV 15: No Longer In Control
[A section of Solaris that has been blown off
falls and hits the main structure's pillar. That pillar, which is holding
Solaris up, is cracked in two from the impact and bursts into flame. The whole
structure is now on fire and begins to fall earthbound.]
[Scene opens on the Yggdrasil bridge. Camera in front of Bart on the side.
The visual alarm still rings.]
"We're gonna get caught up in it!?
Yggdrasil!! Get moving!!"
FMV 16: The Fall of Solaris
[Solaris falls to the earth. When it hits the
ocean, a huge atomic explosion is seen going up from the epicenter. The
explosion fades everything in sight to a bright, blinding white
[----END FMV 16----]
[Scene fades in behind Elly on the Yggdrasil bridge. The alarm still goes off
and the Yggdrasil rumbles at the blast. Then after a long time, it subsides and
the scene returns to normal. Bart drops to his knees. Fade music.]
We made it...... somehow...!?"
[The Yggdrasil begins to shudder again as a noise increases outside of
"Wha, what the?"
"It's that red Gear...!! It's coming this way!!!!"
[The entire bridge lights up red. Bart shakes his head.]
[Scene cut to above Bart. Elly turns around and walks slowly to the door. She
leaves. Citan turns at the sound.]
"... Elly? ...!"
"Citan! What now? What should we do?"
[Citan turns to Bart.]
"Huh? What... You are asking me what to do?"
[Citan looks down thinking.]
"There's someone on the deck... It's... Elly!?"
[Bart turns towards Sigurd.]
[Scene fade slow.]
[Scene fade in on the top of the Yggdrasil which is shuddering and smoking.
Vierge stands on top of it. Camera in front of the side of Vierge at a long

"I'm going to do this... So please, allow me to do it!"
"It is too dangerous!"
But, it's just like when Fei put his life on the line
to save me...
It's my turn to save Fei... As long as it helps him, I don't
care what happens to me!"
[Begin music: "The Treasure that Cannot be Stolen"]
[Vierge is squared off against Id's Gear. Camera behind Id's Gear.]
"Heh... You. You've come to die, eh?"
[Camera pan in towards Vierge.]
If that is what will satisfy you, then kill me.
[Vierge pulls out its rod and exposes itself on purpose. Scene cut to in
front of Id's Gear on the side. The head looks up.]
"Hmph... Good girl... Now, die!"
[Camera pan back to battle shot. Id's Gear runs up to Vierge. It punches
Vierge once, but Vierge grabs ahold of the shoulder of Id's Gear, disabling its
movement. Id's Gear begins to struggle.]
"!? Let go..."
[Elly is in some pain, as she has her hands on her head and her eyes closed,
"Guh... Fei... I, I won't ever let go!"
[Elly's propellers shift down a bit. She composes herself.]
"Fei... Please, return to the real Fei!!"
[Camera pan down a bit. Vierge strikes a blow at the heart of Id's Gear.]
"Errgaah!! W, what!?"
[Fade to black except for the Gears. Fade back to battle mode shot. Vierge
