100002 01 base portrait.pngElisanneHello? Anyone?

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisanne...Not a trace of life, as I feared. Fie, but this is the fourth sudden disappearance of a noble family.

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisanneAll of them were pious followers of Ilia who had donated large sums to the Church. There is no possible reason for them to flee or go into hiding.

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisanneWhatever could be happening here?

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisanneHmm? Who goes there?!

120091 01 base portrait.pngNobleEeeeek! Please, no! Don't kill me!

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisanneAh! Are you of this house, sir? If so, might you inform me as to what happened here, if anything?

120091 01 base portrait.pngNobleD-don't come near me! You're a Paladyn— you're friends with HER!

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisannePray, sir, calm yourself and tell me what has transpired here.

120091 01 base portrait.pngNobleA sylvan woman...used a-arrows... The mirror! despair... Noooo, I don't want to die!

120091 01 base portrait.pngNobleShe's still near! She must be!

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisanne?!

100001 09 base portrait.pngThe PrinceHah!

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisanneEuden?!

100001 09 base portrait.pngThe PrinceAre you all right, Elly?!

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisanneHrk?!

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisanneThere!

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisanneIs this...a mirror?!

100035 01 base portrait.png???I was curious to see how the youngest Grand Paladyn in history had grown. Alas, I find you to be naught more than a hopeless disappointment.

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisanneThat voice... Those skills... Ciella!

100001 09 base portrait.pngThe PrinceYou know this woman?

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisanneYes. She was once a Paladyn who served the Goddess Ilia.

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisanneLong before I was a Paladyn for true, she taught me of their comportments and martial arts.

100001 09 base portrait.pngThe PrinceSo she's your TEACHER?!

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisanneWe weren't so close as to have been teacher and pupil—but she was one of the Paladyns I aspired to be like.

100035 01 base portrait.pngCiellaAnd how long it has been, Elisanne? Ah, I did not wish to see you again, yet as this presents an opportunity to end your life, I cannot complain of it.

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisanneI heard you were excommunicated just as I was promoted to the rank of Paladyn.

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisanneBut does this mean the disappearances of the Ilian faithful are your doing?

100035 01 base portrait.pngCiellaI despair for your faculties that you even feel the need to pose such a query.

100001 09 base portrait.pngThe PrinceI won't let it stand if you killed the people here!

100035 01 base portrait.pngCiellaYour proclivity for taking up the mantle of a knight in shining armor is repugnant, seventh scion. But I suppose it's no surprise from a puppet.

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisannePuppet? What is that supposed to—

100035 01 base portrait.pngCiellaDo you truly think I will answer every fool query you think to toss my direction? How terrifically naive.

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisanneYou were once a splendid Paladyn with an ironclad sense of justice.

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisanneYou went too far at times, true, but we all still respected you—nay, even sought to BE you. How can you have turned to such violent actions in the meantime?

100035 01 base portrait.pngCiellaYour memory is despairingly weak. And further, you misunderstand.

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisanneHow so?

100035 01 base portrait.pngCiellaI have not changed at all—I still act to protect justice and order. I have simply come to a new realization.

100035 01 base portrait.pngCiellaI now recognize the deception that the Ilian Church spreads across this world.

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisanne...Of what do you speak?

100035 01 base portrait.pngCiellaYour lack of understanding is further proof that you Paladyns yet cling to false justice.

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisanneExplain yourself!

100035 01 base portrait.pngCiellaThe righteousness and justice that you tout is nothing more than convenient dogma.

100035 01 base portrait.pngCiellaThe notion of universal equity is mere self-righteousness; the idea of a just world is but mistaken presumption.

100035 01 base portrait.pngCiellaSinners float above this world awash in material possessions and glory while the good and pure die languishing in gutters. THIS is the truth of the world.

100035 01 base portrait.pngCiellaThe doctrine of the Ilian Church averts its eyes from reality, preferring instead the false promise of salvation. Then they deign call obedience of that doctrine "order."

100035 01 base portrait.pngCiellaBut however splendid the words one uses to hide the truth, people will still kill one another without hesitation if it means their own survival.

100035 01 base portrait.pngCiellaYou brandish that lance at me and call it justice, but it is nothing more than a means to justify your own violent ends. I despair for you, Paladyn. Truly I do.

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisanne......

100035 01 base portrait.pngCiellaYou poor, pitiful child. You have been cowed by putrid deception, unable to even question the false justice to which you cling so very fiercely.

100035 01 base portrait.pngCiellaThus will I release you from that false justice, for I cannot ignore the plaintive wails of such a pitiful child.

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisanneAnd how many lives have you ended using that selfsame reasoning?

100035 01 base portrait.pngCiellaI SAVED those people!

100035 01 base portrait.pngCiellaThey lacked tenacity, and so went without salvation. Pain will later lead to happiness. These are the lies that hide the despair of reality.

100035 01 base portrait.pngCiellaThe absence of salvation? Suffering? All of it is meaningless. This is the cruel yoke of our reality, and a lesson I made certain to teach them well.

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisanneEnough of this rot!

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisanneHow can you stand there and call ANY of this salvation?!

100035 01 base portrait.pngCiellaPoor, pitiful Elisanne. It seems you also wish to avert your gaze from the cruel nature of reality.

100035 01 base portrait.pngCiellaI understand, for I was once very much the same. But you must accept despair, which means the time has come for me to liberate you from "justice."

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisanneThat is no liberation! You may have tossed your faith aside, but I refuse to do the same!

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisanneIf you choose to wallow in base despair, you must do it alone. For no matter how cruel the world might be, I will hold fast to the order and righteousness I believe in!

100002 01 base portrait.pngElisanneAs Grand Paladyn of the Ilian Church, I will end your atrocities this day!

100035 01 base portrait.pngCiellaThe depths of your naivety are staggering.

100035 01 base portrait.pngCiellaBut I will wrest you free of the deception you cling to! ...Feral Shroud, expand!

100001 09 base portrait.pngThe PrinceThis barrier... You're one of them!

100035 01 base portrait.pngCiellaWe are wings of judgment which unfurl in rejection of the deceit of this world! We are AGITO!

100035 01 base portrait.pngCiellaI will thrust you into the depths of despair!
