Man: Since opening of the gates ten years ago, our kingdom has been in danger of complete destruction.
Text: Production - Bandai Namco Entertainment
Man: However! In this land where the heart was almost dead, there was someone who stood up, the sword of miracles in their hand! That man is Altorius Colbrand!
Velvet: Altorius!!
Velvet: The only thing my heart frozen over by despair feels is the taste of flesh covered in blood and my hatred for that man.
Text: This is a story of emotions and principle.
Text: Her journey begins in the depths of a dark prison cell...
Woman: Are you satisfied with not knowing? Not knowing what it was you saw on that night...
Velvet: Where is that man?
Woman: I shall tell you once we escape safely.
Velvet: Escape... huh. You have yourself a deal.
Text: There's a flame in this heart that cannot be extinguished, even if I wanted it to.
Laphicet: Kill Mr. Altorius...
Velvet: You all can run away, too, you know.
Rokurou: I can't do that. If you die, I wouldn't be able to repay my debt of gratitude to you.
Magilou: What is going on with you all? Doing all this and waking me up...
Eizen: I don't have enough manpower. Lend me your strength.
Mage: I won't let you get away! You're the only one I can't let get away!
Eleanore: I want to know the truth about what is going on in this world.
Laphicet: I...
Satou: He's intending to self-destruct!
Rokurou: What should we do? Bring him along?
Laphicet: I'm the one who decided to go with you.
Velvet: Listen up! We're going to leave this island... All of us!
Woman: You are sin itself...
Velvet: I threw it away ages ago.
Eizen: Even if you stop here, I will fight with the spirits.
Velvet: I'm not falling back!
Magilou: Do your best to not break.
Velvet: Laphicet!
Eleanore: It can't go back to the way it was...
Eizen: It's fine to agonize. It's proof that you're alive.
Text: So you can live, being true to yourself...
Text: And so that I can live true to myself...
Velvet: This is the way I live!!
