The gondola halts and you step out onto yet another battlefield.

"This...is a massacre!"

The savage spectacle is horrifying to behold. Oxsecian soldiers are slaughtering the childlike clones and ravaging their home.

"Behold the will of the Oxsecian king. He must be stopped. If he claims the Animata of this planet, all is lost."

Pepropé speaks of more than mere defeat. It would mean losing the struggle for survival--in short, extinction.

You are all well aware what a formidable foe you face.

"Whether we fight or not, we're dead either way."

"Then we might as well go down fighting."

"Please, allow me a word with my father."

So saying, 36AIS hurries off toward the king. Palpa, ready to respect her wishes, glances at the rest of you.

"Let's guard her back."

Your party streaks after her like an arrow, cleaving a path across the battlefield.


27.2Edit

So it's revenge you're here for, then?

"We shall purge this weak blood--every last drop."

An assault squad under the king's command is mowing down everyone and everything in its path, without hesitation or mercy.

36AIs confronts her father with a pained expression.

"You left me for dead on this remote planet in accordance with custom."

"So it's revenge you're here for, then?"

27.3Edit

The Animata of this planet has chosen me as queen.

"Do you not understand? The Animata of this planet has chosen me as queen."

"What could you possibly accomplish with such frail life energy? Seeking potential where none exists is fruitless."

27.4Edit

The king does not waver.

"Father, do you understand who your followers have slain here?"

"The enemy of our people."

"No. They were children bearing my DNA. Your grandchildren, as it were."

This scene of slaughter was a meeting of bloodlines sundered.

But the king does not waver.

27.5Edit

Queen chosen by Animata.

"Stop! Parents slaying their own children? This is madness!"

"And you are...?"

"My name is Palpa. Like your daughter, I am a queen chosen by Animata."

27.6Edit

It is how we cull the weak and strengthen bloodline.

"Why would a king slay his own kin?"

"I've told you already. It is how we cull the weak and strengthen the bloodline."

27.7Edit

It is the duty of our kings.

You try to outmaneuver the Oxsecians to stem the violence.

But you cannot stand up to their staggering martial strength.

The elite soldiers surrounding the king steadily wear you down, seemingly indefatigable themselves.

The king seizes 36AIS with one hand, her frail figure reflected in his icy eyes. Gripping his sword in the other, he presses the tip to her neck.
Palpa flies into a rage at the sight.

"You monster!"

"So, Father, you do intend to kill me--or rather, every last one of us."

Thus have the Oxsecians survived and evolved for so long: cull inferior specimens and allow only the best of the best to remain.

"It is the duty of our kings. It is the way to realizing our people's dream at last!"

27.8Edit

You shall not harm her while we yet breathe!

"You shall not harm her while we yet breathe!"
"Palpa's right! What self-serving arrogance! Taking the life of your own child is unforgivable!"

Palpa and company charge forward, resolved to end this at any cost. For the first time, the king and his elite troops begin to falter.

27.9Edit

Alive...together!

"I'm sorry you were swept up in all of this. Forgive me."

"What are you talking about?"
"Yeah, we're going to get out of this alive...together!"

36AIS blinks in surprise at your words. She is clearly grieved that outsiders were caught up in her people's conflict, but her distress is unfounded.

You've fought alongside each other, risked your lives together to get this far, after all. You are comrades-in-arms.

"Y-yes, Of course!"

27.10Edit

Your hearts beat as one.

A subterranean rumbling draws near.

"Whatever it is, let it come!"

Your hearts beat as one, and your will, united in purpose, nourishes you and becomes the power to prevail.

The king watches the battle with distaste.

"A desperate effort. How unsightly."

He turns his gaze upon your party once more. Your eyes, crystal clear, show not the slightest fear.

It begins as a throb.

Between the pulses of a raging hear, another, fainter pulse comes to life.

It is an emotion that should have been long forgotten.

It starts as a crushing sensation in the pit of his stomach. The king's eyes widen in surprise.

"What is this...pain welling up?"

"An emotion from which we Oxsecians have long been sundered."

Yet in truth, this emotion--fundamental to all sentient beings--had lived on in the deepest recesses of their hearts.

"Do you understand the significance of that pain, Father?"

"When hopes and prayers go unanswered...sorrow is born."

A memory surfaces--that of a morning long ago, when a tiny life first cried out with all its strength.

"Father...Shall we settle this here and now, once and for all?"

The king is silent, searching for something within.

"Father!"

The king turns to shimmering particles of light and vanishes.

"Father..."
