Fallen Angel RamielHrk...
LucaGame, set, and match! I think that clinches it.
The PrinceNormally, I'd agree with you, but...
NevinYou noticed too, huh? There's something else inside of him.
RanzalI get the feeling you ain't talkin' about what he had for lunch today.
Fallen Angel RamielHa ha. So even you can sense how close the demon's seal is to breaking.
ElisanneWhat is the meaning of this? Are you yourself not a demon?
Fallen Angel RamielHow simple you are. I never claimed to be anything of the sort.
CleoThen what the blazes ARE you?
Fallen Angel RamielI am but a vessel—a mimicry of one of the Five Archangels, created to seal a demon into the otherworld.
NevinFirst I've ever heard of such a thing.
Fallen Angel RamielI would expect you, of all people, to know about such a thing, apostle. Ha ha... It would seem the Church has maintained its doctrine of concealing information.
Fallen Angel RamielVery well. I shall divulge a modicum of the truth that the Church has hidden, as a gift to bring with you into the afterlife.
Fallen Angel RamielHundreds of years ago, there was a great war centered in North Grastaea— a war between demons and angels.
Fallen Angel RamielBoth sides brought equal might to bear. The war was an imbroglio; a quagmire that seemed to all as though it would stretch on forever. Until...
Fallen Angel RamielThe angels concocted an inhumane, unscrupulous plan to quell the conflict once and for all.
NevinYou mean the mimicries of the Five Archangels?
Fallen Angel RamielI do. Perceptive of you.
Fallen Angel RamielThe angels selected five of their own with power enough to seal away the Five Archdemons, great warriors of the demon armies, and copied them.
Fallen Angel RamielWe copies, in accordance with the angels' orders, sealed the demons within ourselves, and were quarantined to the depths of the otherworld.
Fallen Angel RamielIn other words, we were discarded like refuse in order to seal away the demons. Rather heartless, don't you think?
RamielI can sympathize, yes, but that was the mission you received. Surely you also gave your consent to it?
Fallen Angel RamielYes, I accepted it at first. I was a vessel created to seal away a demon, and my only mission was to act as such.
Fallen Angel RamielHowever, over the course of my internment in the otherworld via the sealing stone, I had a change of heart.
Fallen Angel RamielAfter all, is it not preposterous that a being like myself should be sacrificed for mere insects like yourselves?
RamielI see now. The influence of the demon sealed within you has bubbled to the surface and manifested in your personality.
NevinSame sharp tongue as the real deal, though.
RamielI am not so warped. I am an upstanding angel who puts his mission first.
NevinYuh-huh. So how's this whole situation look from your ivory tower, o holy one?
RamielHe has reached his limit as a vessel to seal away the demon within. It would not be an overstatement to suggest that he is essentially the same as the demon now.
RamielAnd if we continue to fight like this, there is no doubt that he will fully revive the blackened fiend he was meant to contain.
LucaWell, what the heck are we supposed to do, then?!
NevinIt's a pain, but we'll have to take him AND the revived demon down at the same time.
RanzalCan't these baddies ever give a poor guy a break? Yeesh. Well, pain or not, it don't look like we've got any other option!
Fallen Angel RamielIs it finally time, then? I can't keep my excitement in check any longer.
Fallen Angel RamielAhhh, what a blissful feeling! I will be able to dispel all of the malice that has built up over hundreds of years like this.
Fallen Angel RamielHa ha... Brace yourselves, worms. I will torment you until your minds and bodies are shattered beyond repair!
The PrinceLet's go, everyone! We're taking him AND the demon inside of him down together!
