Star Ocean - The Second Story Endings Scripts FAQ 

Compiled by: nightshade_x2000@yahoo.com (Nightshadex2000)

====================================


This Guide/FAQ/whatever contains complete scripts and descriptions/narratives 
of 86/87 endings from Star Ocean - The Second Story.  So OBVIOUSLY, they
contain MASSIVE SPOILERS.  You have been warned...

out these descriptions based on my screenshot archive.  I created the 
descriptions myself, using my limited creativity.  

If you see any errors or typos, please let me know.  I will give credit where 
credit is due.  Some typos were in the game itself, and I have kept those 
typos to make it an accurate script.  So it may make hunting for typos a 
little more interesting...

HELP WANTED

Prima's Official Strategy Guide claims there are 87 endings, but does not 
actually list them.  I have yet to find anything that lists 87 endings.  
Feral's Ending Compendium is the closest, listing 86 endings.  

At some point, I will buy the Japanese Strategy Guides to confirm whether any 
of them list the endings.

If you know of anything that lists an 87th ending, or can confirm that, in 
fact, there is NO 87th ending, please e-mail me.  I will credit you throughout 
this guide if you can.

If you already have any of the Japanese Strategy Guides (I count at least 5 
different ones) and confirm whether any of them do or do not contain a list of 
endings, I would appreciate knowing that as well, and I will credit you for 
that as well.

v1.01 - Update with Japanese Strategy Guide Info
-----

I have recently bought a couple of the Japanese Star Ocean 2 strategy guides, 
the Official Strategy Guide (2 separate books, one for characters/skills/items,
the other is the walkthru) and the Star Ocean The Second Story Final Guide
(in many ways, better than the Official Guide, especially because it actually
has MAPS of the Cave of Trials and gives very specific details on obtaining
every ending, even the reunion ending).

Anyway, my Japanese is less than stellar, but from what I see, the Final Guide
specifically states there are 86 endings in total, and then specifically
breaks it down as follows:
 + 70 Couples Endings
	- 3 for Claude and Rena
	- 2 for Claude and Opera
	        Claude and Precis
	        Claude and Chisato
	        Rena and Dias
                Celine and Ernest
                Opera and Ernest
        - 1 for every other combination
 +  3 Special Endings (Opera, Ashton, Celine)
 + 12 Alone Endings
 +  1 Reunion Ending 
 = 86 Endings total


The Official Guide does not appear as specific as the Final Guide from what I
can gather.  Although it specifically lists who has more than one "couple"
ending (the same as the Final Guide), and it lists the 3 special endings and
the reunion ending, it does not specifically count them up and give a total,
nor is it as specific on how to get the Reunion Ending - the Final Guide is
specific, but I need to translate it first!

HOWEVER, having said that, the Official Guide does appear to provide a
potential answer as to what the 87th ending is...

On page 34 of the "Green" Official Strategy Guide, it states as follows, in
Japanese:
  複合エンディング。。。2種類
  クロードとレナに1エピソードづつある

This appears to translate as:
  Compound Ending . . . 2 Kinds
  Claude and Rena each have 1 episode

HOWEVER, I have seen the Compound Ending with Claude as the lead, and Rena
as the lead, and I think it's a stretch to say there are 2 kinds.  The only
difference I could see was who turned into the "lead" character when the
party merges to walk towards Arlia.  I think the Final Guide makes the same
point, that there is no real difference (but I need to translate it first!).
However, as I'm sure the "Official" US Strategy Guide would have used the 
same materials as the "Official" Japanese Strategy Guide, I think this
is the answer as to why the Official US Strategy Guide lists 87 endings.
And I guess some difference is enough to call it a separate ending...

I'm going to try and do a full translation of the pages in both guides myself
at some point, but I need to learn more Japanese Kanji first.

If you are confident in your Japanese, and want to help out, I can scan the
pages dealing with endings and maybe you can send a translation to me, and I
will include it in the guide with a full credit to you, of course.

However, for now, I am going to file the 87th ending mystery as CLOSED.
Until someone proves me wrong (or I prove myself wrong...)

====================================

INTRODUCTION

I had always been curious about all of the endings in this game.  Prima's 
Official Strategy Guide claimed there were 87 endings, but never actually 
listed all of them.  Feral's Ending Compendium (by FeralNoa@aol.com) had a 
more complete listing, but was still pretty vague on some of them, and only 
had 86 endings listed.  The 86th ending also sounded like little more than a 
rumor, and it sounded like a heck of a lot of work to verify or see all 86. 
And no one on the message boards was able to respond when I asked if anyone had
been able to verify ending number 86, or even had a hint about ending number 
87.  With the recent release of Star Ocean EX, my interest in this game was 
renewed, and I was driven to actually confirm and find out for myself what all 
of the endings were.

-----
v1.01 - See "Help Wanted" for the potential "official" 87th ending.
-----

So, the only way to confirm the number of endings was to do it myself.  
Fortunately, there's a debug room FAQ by Matthew Hoffman that mentioned 
something about changing relationship values in the debug room.

And so, I obtained these endings the old fashioned way.  Cheating with a 
Codebreaker.  

This guide won't tell you how to get specific endings.  Feral's guide is 
better for that.  I can only confirm that I could get the Reunion Ending (#86) 
by setting every group members romantic and friendship values to 15 for every 
other party member.  The Reunion Ending, if you get it, only appears after the 
credits roll.  In other words, it's a pain in the butt to test for it, because 
you have to wait a long time before you even know if you got it.  At some 
point, I'll update this FAQ with the exact conditions to get ending 86.

-----
v1.01 - See "Help Wanted" for update on conditions to get the Reunion Ending.
-----

I made this script file by preparing a list of all the potential endings 
(using Feral's guide for the list of endings that supposedly exist), and then 
using the debug room to adjust party member values to get as many endings as 
possible each time I viewed the ending sequence.  Normally, I reset on the 
credits. So, even after repeatedly adjusting values to get Ending 86, I would
see nothing.  But, once, I decided, on a lark, to wait until the credits
rolled, and I FINALLY saw and was able to confirm that ending 86 REALLY
EXISTED.  Which no other guide on GameFaqs appeared to actually do.  

I made extensive screenshots of every action in every ending.  In fact, I have 
1,398 screenshots in total, covering all 86 endings I was able to get.  

At some point, I hope to make a web page where one can view the screenshots 
along with the text.  It'd probably be more entertaining than just reading the 
text.

This FAQ/Guide is for people like me, who want to know exactly what happens in 
all of the endings.  But, it'll save you the time of doing what I did.  Even 
cheating, it still took a few evenings to see all of them...


====================================

USING THIS GUIDE

At some point, I'll add the fancy shortcuts to jump in the guide like others 
do.  For now, here's how I recommend you look for a specific ending.

All endings grouped by character, and ordered in the same order that the game 
uses to break ties:

Claude
Rena
Celine
Bowman
Dias
Precis
Ashton
Leon
Opera
Ernest
Noel
Chisato

"Solo" endings are listed as "Claude alone", etc.
"Pair" endings are listed as "Claude and Rena", etc.
"Special" endings are listed as "Ashton Special", etc.  There are 3 special 
endings:
"Celine Special"
"Ashton Special"
"Opera Special"

The Reunion Ending, Ending 86, that exists as a bonus ending beyond the 
individual endings, is listed as "Reunion Ending"

There are NO duplicates.  So, although "Claude and Rena" is listed, "Rena and 
Claude" is not.

Some characters have multiple endings depending on the relationship values 
between the members of the party.  I think I wrote down the conditions 
correctly, but I did go through 86 endings, so there might be a mistake.

So, to use your FIND command to locate a specific ending, like for example, 
Precis and Ashton look for
"Precis and Ashton"
Do NOT look for "Ashton and Precis", because that is not the order the game 
uses to break ties.

Confusing, yes?

If I ever get around to making a web page for this, I'll have it handle 
retrieving the ending regardless of the order you select the names.


====================================

READING THIS GUIDE

This Guide is not just the text from the endings written down verbatim.  I 
also tried to describe exactly what was going on at the same time as dialogue 
is spoken.  Star Ocean - The Second Story also makes heavy use of the pseudo-
emoticons above a character's head, to indicate certain emotional states like 
sweating (three animating blue water marks, usually used to indicate a 
"sweating nervously" state), the standard anime sweat drop, etc.

Usually, I have indicated the emoticon in [], square brackets, to make it 
stand out more.  Sometimes, like with sweating, I just incorporate in my 
description.  It all depends.  If you've played Star Ocean - The Second Story 
(and if you haven't, why are you reading this - go buy the game!) you'll 
probably understand what I mean when you see it in the text.  Like [!] being 
the exclamation mark that appears above a character's head, [?], [three yellow
marks], [sweat drop], [steaming] - which is the angry looking cloud, etc.

Also, a couple of times, there are heart symbols or music notes in the 
dialogue.  I have put them in brackets as well - [heart] [music note]



====================================

Time passed...

====================
CLAUDE C. KENNI

--------------------
Claude alone

A spaceship has just docked at Earth.  An exit hatch is open, and a docking 
bridge is already connected.  Claude walks through the ship's exit out onto 
the bridge.
Claude stops just as he is about to step onto the bridge.
Claude [...]
Claude - "Earth... ah..."
Claude begins walking across the bridge, talking to himself.
Claude - "I have finally made it back."
Claude - "I wonder if they are all doing OK."
Claude walks in silence until the near end of the bridge, where it connects to 
the station.
Claude stops 
Claude - [!]
Claude - "Mother!!"
Claude runs the rest of the way, off screen.

--------------------
Claude and Rena - Claude's affection is greater

Claude and Rena are in the village of Arlia.  Claude is standing at the dock 
on the river near Rena's house.  Rena leaves her house and runs to Claude.  As 
she nears, she calls to Claude.
Rena - "Good morning, Claude."
Rena stops at the edge of the dock near Claude.  Claude turns towards Rena.
Rena continues - "Have you gotten used to living in Arlia?"
Claude - "Sort of.  I still can't get rid of my habits from the time I lived 
on Earth."
Rena - "Hey, Claude.  Are you really sure you don't want to go back to Earth?  
Do you have any regrets?"
Claude turns away from Rena towards the river again.
Claude - "I don't have any regrets.  Remember, it was a decision I made on my 
own."

--------------------
Claude and Rena - Relationship values equal

Claude is dressed in a Captain's uniform, sitting in the Captain's seat of a 
space cruiser.  Various crew members are milling about. Rena is on the left 
side facing another crew member.
Operator - "Chief! We are approaching an orbital path around the Planet 
Madrit."
Claude turns to face the right side.
Claude - "Acknowledged. Proceed with scanning."
Operator - "Yes sir!"
Rena walks up to stand next to Claude, and begins talking to him.
Rena - "I wonder what sort of planet this is?"
Claude turns to face Rena.
Claude - "Who knows. But let's hope that at least there is enough water."
Rena - "yes. If we can't procure enough here, we'll have to return to Earth."
Claude - "Well, even if we have to do that, I won't complain. It's been more 
than a year now since we called port at a developed planet."
An operator on the right turns from his station and faces Claude.
Operator - "Scan completed sir. Planet is Class M. Life forms have been 
detected, but no humanoid beings have been discovered."
Claude and Rena facing the right side operator when an operator on the left 
(who Rena was standing near earlier) turns to face Claude.
Operator - "Type E atmosphere. Breathable. Mineral ore and water resources 
sufficient for our purposes appear to exist."
Claude and Rena face each other.
Rena - "I guess that means no trip back to Earth then."
Claude - "I guess so. Let's just keep going till space runs out."

--------------------
Claude and Rena - Rena's affection is greater

Claude and Rena are sitting across from each other on couches in Claude's room 
on Earth.
Claude stands up and walks towards a desk on the left side of the room.  Rena 
turns towards Claude.
Rena - "Hey, Claude. When are you going to come home?"
Claude turns around to face Rena.
Claude - "Hmmm... The military maneuvers in Beta sector might take six months 
or so."
Rena - "I see... So take care."
Claude - "Sorry about that. Always leaving you alone like this."
Rena - "Don't worry about it. I know that it's your work and all."
Rena - "It's all right. I won't be alone for long."
Claude - "What!?"
Rena - "You are so dense. Don't you remember you are going to become a daddy 
in six months..."

--------------------
Claude and Celine

Claude and Celine are in a dungeon (the same background as part of the 
mountain palace) with a bookshelf.  Claude is rooting through a bookshelf, 
while Celine stands in the center of the room looking at Claude.
Claude picks up a crumpled piece of paper.
Claude - [...]
Celine - "It looks that we were wrong this time."
Claude - "We went to so much trouble, but no treasure worthy of being 
treasure..."
Celine - "It can't be helped. That's a treasure hunt for you."
Claude turns to Celine.
Claude - "Even then, maybe a little more..."
A monster walks out of the northern exit.
Claude and Celine turn towards the monster
Claude and Celine - [!]
Celine - "Is it a monster?"
Celine - "Good timing. Shall we work off a little stress, darling?"
Claude - "That's right. Let's show off a little."
They both run towards the monster as it fades out.

--------------------
Claude and Bowman

Claude and Bowman are fighting a purple flying manta ray type enemy on the 
shores of El continent (the same background where Rena and her group washed up 
after the boat was destroyed).  They have it surrounded and are attacking it 
from opposite sides.  Claude dashes into the enemy and slices him into 
oblivion.  
Claude puts away his swords and Bowman walks up to him.
Claude - "Wow, in this area there are still a lot of monsters who attack 
people."
Bowman turns to look out to sea.
Bowman - "Yeah. The reconstruction of the Kingdom of El should take longer 
than expected."
Claude turns to look out to sea as well.
Claude - "But, I think we have subjugated nearly all of the monsters in this 
area."
Bowman turns his head towards Claude.
Bowman - "But, Claude. Are you really OK not returning to your own planet?"
Claude - "I'm fine. There are people here who need me.  That's why I decided 
to stay on Expel."
Bowman turns his head back to face the sea
Bowman - "I see..."

--------------------
Claude and Dias

Dias and Claude are standing in a clearing in the middle of some rock 
outcroppings, and grass on the east edge (it looks like part of the mountains 
where Metox was found).  A couple of bandits are standing near them, and a 
little girl is sweating nervously behind the bandits.  The bandits are holding 
the little girl hostage.  Claude has his sword drawn and is standing in a 
battle ready stance.
After standing a moment, both Claude and Dias rush the bandits and cut them 
down in a swirl of fast and violent swordplay.  
The little girl runs up to the both of them.  Claude and Dias face each other.
Claude - "You know, the turmoil over the Sorcery Globe has ended but there 
doesn't seem to be any end to the conflicts."
Dias - "That's just the way it is... it's reality."
Claude turns towards the child.
Claude - "So then this job will be over when this child is returned to the 
Town."
Claude turns back towards Dias.
Claude - "Say, Dias. Where do you intend to go after this job is finished?"
Dias starts walking to the eastern edge of the screen.  Claude turns to watch 
him leave.
Dias stops after a few paces, and talks without turning back.
Dias - "Good question... somewhere, I guess..."
Dias leaves.  As he leaves, Claude speaks
Claude - "... somewhere, eh?"

--------------------
Claude and Precis - Precis's affection is greater

Precis is in her garage sweating nervously while working on a device. Claude 
calls to her from the kitchen entrance as he walks near to her and stops near 
the tires at the back.
Claude - "Hey Precis! Tea's ready!"
Precis walks up to her bench on the left of the garage.
Precis - "Oh Kaaay. Wait a minute, OK Claude? I'll be finished in a sec."
Claude walks back to the kitchen.
Precis turns back to the device she was working on with an inquisitive look 
Precis - [?]  
She bolts to back to the machine as something happens
Precis - [!]
Precis - "Oops!"
And the machine suddenly explodes in a blinding flash.
The flash clears, and the machine is lying upside down near the garage 
entrance at the south, spinning wildly, and Precis is lying flat on her face.
Claude runs back into the garage sweating nervously.  He stops near Precis.
Claude - "Oh no Precis..."
Precis gets up and turns to Claude.
Precis - "Erk... Did it again!"
Claude moves to stand next to Precis.
Claude - "Really Precis, don't make me worry so much."
Precis - "Sorry Claude."

--------------------
Claude and Precis - Claude's affection 

Claude and Precis are standing next to each other on board a space cruiser, 
near the Chief of the cruiser.  Various crew members are milling about.
Claude turns towards Precis.
Claude - "You know... I'm amazed, Precis, that you have mastered all current 
Earth technology in only 3 years! If it weren't for you, it would have taken 
another 100 years for Expel to join the Federation."
Precis turns towards Claude.
Precis - "Really? Claude, you're just trying to butter me up, aren't you."
Claude - "I'm serious, Precis. You've already won the Eclesia Industrial Prize. 
That's recognized throughout the Galaxy."
Precis - "But it wasn't just me. I couldn't have done anything if you hadn't 
helped me Claude."
Claude - "I haven't been that much of an influence."
Precis moves closer to Claude.
Precis - "Wrong! You have made all my work possible."
The Chief of the ship turns towards Precis and Claude.
Chief - "Dr. Neumann, Captain Kenni. We are about to arrive. Please prepare 
the shuttle."
Claude and Precis turn towards the Chief.
Claude - "Acknowledged, Chief."
Precis turns back towards Claude.
Precis - "It has been three years now since I left Expel."
Claude turns back toward Precis.
Precis - "I'm looking forward to working with you, Captain Kenni, Federation 
Attache to Expel."
Claude - "As am I, Dr. Neumann."

--------------------
Claude and Ashton 

Claude is walking in front of Ashton in a dungeon and enter a T-intersection.  
The dungeon looks the same as the mountain palace.  
Claude stops in the middle of the intersection, while Ashton is still near the 
entrance.
Ashton - "Say, Claude, is it really in this place?"
Claude turns around and stares at Ashton.
Claude - "Who knows? All we can do is go and see, right?"
Ashton walks closer to Claude.
Ashton - "But we have been searching for a year. Now that we've searched for 
so long and still not found it, it must be hopeless."
Gyoro - "WURK, URK."   Ururun - "WIRGYA."
Claude walks closer to Ashton.
Claude - "Don't be so fainthearted. If we search for a year and don't find it, 
then we search for two years... If we still don't find it, then we take three 
years. I don't care if it takes five years or ten years."
Ashton - "Claude..."
Claude - "It's OK. I'm sure that somewhere there is a way of dispelling 
Ashton's curse. And also a way of saving Gyoro and Ururun."
Ashton - "Yes. You're right..."
Claude - "Come, we're going."
Ashton and Claude start walking towards the northeast exit and fades to black.

--------------------
Claude and Leon

Leon is sitting on the couch in Claude's room on Earth. Claude enters the room.
He walks up to the desk, stops, and turns to face Leon.
Claude - "What are you doing, Leon?"
Leon is shocked out of his stupor [three yellow marks] and turns towards 
Claude.
Leon - "I was just thinking about things."
Claude - "Things?"
Leon - "Yeah. I was remembering our adventures."
Claude moves to sit on the couch opposite to Leon.
Claude - "Ah, ... we really had a lot going on at that time."
Leon - "Yeah, you're right."
Claude - "Hey Leon, do you think you will be going back to Expel pretty soon?"
Leon is jolted by the comment [three yellow marks]
Leon - "Why do you say that all of a sudden?"
Claude - [...]
Claude - "No reason ... I just thought that you might be longing for your life 
on Expel."
Leon - "Nothing like that. Well, I do sometimes get lonely, but I still don't 
want to go back. There are still so many things that I want to learn."

--------------------
Claude and Opera - Claude's affection is greater

Claude is sitting on a couch in his room (presumably on Earth).
Opera enters the room and stops by the desk, turning towards Claude.
Opera - "What's the matter, Claude?"
Claude turns to Opera in surprise [three yellow marks]
Claude - "I was just thinking about things."
Opera - "About our adventures at that time?"
Claude - [...]
Opera moves to Claude and sits on the couch next to him.
Opera - "So much has happened since then. I wonder how everyone is doing."
Opera turns towards Claude.
Opera - "Say, Claude. Why don't we go see them all?"
Claude - "Sure. Let's do that."
Opera moves closer to Claude on the couch.
Opera - "But ... since you are back from space after so long, why don't you 
just be with me for today [heart]."

--------------------
Claude and Opera - Opera's affection is greater

Claude is standing on the balcony of Opera's home, looking out over the edge.
Claude - [...]
Opera enters from the right, wearing a black dress.  She walks onto the 
balcony and stands next to Claude.  Claude turns to face Opera.
Opera - "What's up, Claude?"
Claude - "I was just thinking."
Opera - "About our adventures back then?"
Claude and Opera turn out to look over the balcony edge. Opera moves a little 
closer to Claude.
Opera - "Yeah. I wonder how everyone is doing...?"
Opera turns to face Claude.
Opera - "Say, Claude, do you want to go see everyone?"
Claude - "Sure. Let's do that."
Opera turns back to look over the balcony edge, and moves even closer to 
Claude.
Opera - "But today, I want you to go to a black-tie party."
Claude turns to face Opera.
Claude - "Gimme a break. I hate having to dress up formally."
Opera turns to face Claude.
Opera - "You have to. As the next head of the prestigious Vectra family of 
Tetragenes, you have to dress the part."

--------------------
Claude and Ernest

Claude and Ernest are standing on the bridge of a starship.  Claude appears to 
be captain, dressed in a military uniform, sitting in the central seat.  
Ernest is standing to his right, slightly behind him.  Various crew members 
are milling about.
An Operator turns towards Claude.
Operator - "Chief! We are approaching an orbital path around the Planet 
Madrit."
Claude - "Acknowledged. Proceed with scanning."
operator - "Yes sir!"
Operator - "Scan completed sir. Planet is Class M. Life forms have been 
detected, but no humanoid beings have been discovered. Type E atmosphere. 
Breathable. Abundant mineral and water resources appear to exist."
Ernest turns to face the Operator.
Ernest - "Anything out of the ordinary?"
The Operator turns to face Ernest.
Operator - "Nothing in particular. At least no {* edifices have been defined."
Ernest - "I see..."
Ernest turns back to face forward again.
Claude - "All right then, add that data to the Universal Space Survey 
Project's database. Append note to the effect that nothing was found out of 
the ordinary."
An Officer walks from the right to stand near Claude.
Officer - "Chief Kenni. I suppose that your mission is now complete."
Claude - "I suppose you're right."
Ernest walks up to stand right next to Claude and turns towards him.
Claude - "Survey mission for undeveloped planets in Lambda Sector completed. 
Set course for Earth, warp speed."

--------------------
Claude and Noel

Noel is standing in the Shingo Forest, in the area where Claude first appeared.
A number of small furry animals (rabbits, dogs, etc.) are milling about around 
him.  A larger, angry looking two-tailed animal is standing in position to 
pounce.
Claude enters from the southwest entrance, and is alerted to Noel's presence 
[three yellow marks]
Claude walks up to the entrance of the clearing an looks towards Noel.
Claude - "Studying animals again? You're always the diligent type."
Noel turns to face Claude.
Noel - "Oh, it's you, Claude."
Claude walks up closer to Noel.
Claude - "But Noel. Are you sure it's OK to get this close to those wild 
animals? Should you really be doing this?"
Noel - "You're right. I really shouldn't be doing this ... but I just couldn't 
leave these orphaned animals alone."
The larger, angrier looking animal runs up to Noel's feet.
Noel - "But these little ones really seem to adore me..."
The animal starts biting Noel's leg.
Claude - "Noel!?"
Noel - "Ha, ha. It's all right. It's just their way of expressing love."
Claude gets a little exasperated [sweat drop]
Claude - "But ... you're bleeding..."
Noel - [sweat drop]
Noel - "Huh..."
The animal biting Noel's leg starts jumping and attacking more fiercely.  Noel 
starts sweating.
Noel - "Ouch, ouch, ouch!! They're attacking! They're really angry!"
Claude takes a few steps closer to Noel.
Claude - "Are you all right, Noel!"
Noel - "Quickly! Come on and shoo them off!"
The camera pans up and fades away.

Claude and Chisato - Claude's affection is greater

Claude and Chisato are standing on the bridge of a starship.  Claude appears 
to be captain, dressed in a military uniform, sitting in the central seat.  
Chisato is standing to his right, slightly behind him.  Various crew members 
are milling about.
Chisato moves closer to stand next to Claude.
Chisato - "Isn't the battle with the Rezonians in the Bandor Region about to 
begin?"
Claude - "Yes. It's just a skirmish, but we must protect our allies who have 
had their flanks exposed. It could be dangerous."
Chisato lowers her head.
Chisato - "Why is there war? Fighting produces nothing."
Claude - "Both Rezonia and the Federation have their reasons I suppose. Things 
never work idealistically, you know that."
Chisato raises her head.
Chisato - "I suppose I do, but..."
Claude - "It's no use to chase after dreams. The best we can do is fight to 
protect those who depend upon us in the Federation."
Chisato turns to face Claude.
Chisato - "But I'm here to chase those dreams, Claude. My job is to show how 
futile and terrible war is, and stop it from happening."
Claude turns to face Chisato.
Claude - "The enemy will not be impressed with your camera and press 
credentials, Chisato. Be careful, or you may never come back from this 
assignment."
Chisato - "You know me better than to think that I would let something like 
that get in my way, Claude. I could never work in a job that I didn't bet my 
life on."
Claude - "Indeed I do... Hurry up and get rid of war for us."
Chisato - "Don't worry! I'm on the case!!"
Chisato and Claude both turn to face forward.

--------------------
Claude and Chisato - Chisato's affection is greater

Claude and Chisato are standing on the bridge of a starship.  Claude appears 
to be captain, dressed in a military uniform, sitting in the central seat.  
Chisato is standing in front of the Captain's console, near a couple of 
helmsmen.  Various crew members are milling about.
Chisato turns to face Claude.
Chisato - "Next is the survey of the Sigma Sector satellite Vortex."
Claude - "Atmosphere Type F. Helium level is a little high, but still 
breathable. No humanoid beings have been observed but the possibility still 
remains."
Chisato - "Well then, let's get on with the survey."
Claude - "Helmsman, give me warp speed! All hands brace for impact."
Chisato turns back to face forward.
Chisato - "There's still so many places left to discover in the Universe. What 
are we waiting for? Let's go!"
The screen fades to white.


====================
RENA LANFORD

--------------------
Rena alone

It is a normal sunny day in Arlia, near the river by Westa and Rena's house.
Westa - "I'll be going."
Westa leaves their house.
Rena - "Wait!"
Rena bursts through the door.  Westa turns to face Rena.
Westa - "What, Rena?"
Rena - "What do you mean, 'what'. You went there yesterday and the day 
before."
Westa begins to walk away from Rena, towards the North-west exit of the screen.
Westa - "But I feel so calm somehow when I am there."
Westa stops and turns back to Rena.
Westa - "Can't I go?"
Rena - "No you can't. No matter how peaceful it has become."
Westa gets annoyed [scribbly marks]
Rena - [...]
Rena - "This is not the time to be going..."
Westa turns away from Rena and continues walking north.
Westa - "I'll leave the rest to you."
Rena stands there, watching Westa.
Rena - "Uh, wait."
Rena - [...]
Rena - "That girl... really loves the Shingo Forest."
Rena returns inside.  The camera pans up to Westa near the Arlia item shop.
Westa - "Whew. Too dangerous. That silly Rena is so annoying. Let's go quickly 
to the Shingo Forest."

--------------------
Rena and Celine

Rena and Celine are standing, talking to each other in a cafe in the city of 
Mars.
Celine - "... So, I know I am being presumptuous but would you like to work 
with me on my research?"
Rena - "I'd like that, but... I just don't think I can do it. I can't imagine 
creating new healing Crests."
Celine - "It's not like that. Not only does Heraldry serve to transmit the 
powers of Nedians, but there is no doubt that you as a Nedian will be able to 
use the power of healing."
Rena - "But I don't understand any of the details of theory..."
Celine moves closer to Rena.
Celine - "That's why we do research. Moreover, if we succeed with the research, 
it would be wonderful."
Rena - "I see now. If we can make the healing power into something that anyone 
can use, then many lives will be saved."
Celine - [Heart]
Celine - "And then, the names of us two will be handed down in legend for 
years and years. As great Masters of Heraldry who perfected the healing 
Heraldry."
Rena - [...]

--------------------
Rena and Bowman

Rena is standing near a bookshelf in the Linga University Library.  Bowman 
enters and walks to stand next to Rena.
Bowman - "How are your studies going?"
Rena is startled by Bowman [three yellow marks]. She turns to face Bowman.
Rena - "Oh, hi Bowman."
Bowman - "You sure were absorbed in something. You didn't even hear me until I 
said something."
Rena - "There are so many books here. And when I start reading them they're 
all so interesting I forget the time..."
Bowman - "Ha ha ha... Just as I thought. You should be in academia. You know? 
The most important thing for professors is that they enjoy what they study."
Rena lowers her head in embarrassment.
Rena - "Professor? I'm nowhere near THAT..."
Bowman begins talking and Rena raises her head.
Bowman - "That's where you're wrong Rena. You're professor material. I 
guarantee it!"

--------------------
Rena and Dias - Rena's affection is greater

Dias and Rena are standing near the base of a tree where Dias's parents and 
sister died.  A bouquet of flowers is at the base of the tree.  Both are 
looking at the flowers.
Dias - "Sorry about not coming by for awhile..."
Chisato - "Pleased Mr. and Mrs. Flac and Cecille too. It really has been a 
long time."
Dias turns to Rena.
Dias - "Maybe we should be getting going..."
Rena turns towards Dias.
Rena - "You're right. We have to hurry or we won't reach town by sundown."
They both turn towards the flowers again.
Dias - "I promise to come back in a month..."
Rena and Dias walk towards the western exit.
Rena stops early and turns towards the bouquet, while Dias keeps walking.
Rena - "Say, Cecille. Please be happy for us..."
Rena then returns to walking after Dias, and it fades out.

--------------------
Rena and Dias - Dias's affection is greater

Rena and Dias are in Arlia.  Dias is on the balcony of the mayor's house 
staring out over the water.  Rena is on the ground and is walking towards Dias.
Rena talks to Dias from the river bank near the mayor's house.
Rena - "Good morning, Dias."
Dias turns his head toward Rena.
Dias - "Oh, it's Rena."
Rena - "What do you think of your new life in Arlia?"
Dias turns back to face the water.
Dias - "It's horrible. Too peaceful. I'm losing my edge."
Ketil and a little girl begin running up from the north west edge of town.
Dias - "But the worst thing is those noisy little brats... They are worse than 
any monster."
Ketil and the girl stop near Rena and look up at Dias.
Little girl - "Big Brother Dias. Let's play [music note]"
Ketil - "Come on. You promised yesterday."
Dias gets annoyed [scribbly marks]
Dias then turns towards the kids.
Dias - "OK, OK. I'll be right there, just wait a minute."
Dias turns and leaves the balcony and enters the mayor's house.
The little girl turns towards Rena.
Little girl - "Big Sister Rena, are you going to play too?"
Rena turns towards the little girl.
Rena - "Maybe I will. OK, let's play."
Rena then turns toward the door to the mayor's house.
Rena - "I think Dias would have a hard time by himself."

--------------------
Rena and Precis

Rena is standing near one of the cafe tables in the castle town of Cross.
Rena lowers her head.
Rena - "Just like Precis to call someone and then be late..."
Precis runs in from the east side of the screen, with her Bobot running behind 
her.  Bobot is sweating profusely.
Precis stops in front of Rena, with Bobot next to her.
Precis - "Rena! Rena... sorry, did you wait long?"
Rena raises her head.
Rena - "Yes I did, as a matter of fact, it's been 3 hours!! Really..."
Precis - "Oops... sorry..."
Rena - [?]
Rena - "Anyway... what did you want to talk to me about today?"
Precis moves closer to Rena, almost whispering in Rena's ear.  Bobot stops 
sweating.
Precis - "Umm, well I was thinking that I wanted you to go pick up some guys 
with me."
Bobot moves away from Precis and Rena
Rena - "Pick... up...?!"
Bobot moves back to where it was before, and Precis joins it, standing next to
Bobot.
Precis - "Yeah! I could have done it by myself, but I thought I would have a 
better chance of succeeding if we did it together."
Rena moves closer to Precis, almost whispering in Precis's ear.
Rena - "Wait a minute, Precis. You really mean pick up guys? We go out and 
pick up men that we've never spoken to before?"
Precis - "Yep! That's what I mean."
Rena moves back to where she was before.  Rena shakes her head emphatically.
Rena - "Precis... NO! Don't EVER do anything like that."
Precis - "WHY NOT?! You go somewhere and have tea together and have a good 
time, right? What's wrong with that?"
Rena starts sweating nervously.
Rena - "... It's not a simple as that..."
Precis - "Yes it is! Come on, you're just worrying too much, let's go!"
Precis turns to the west, and yells at a man walking into view from the west.
Precis - "Hey!! Hey you over there...!"
Precis runs towards the man, with Bobot following.  Rena turns and watches 
Precis go. Precis and Bobot stop in front of the man.
Rena - "Precis...!"

--------------------
Rena and Ashton

Ashton is in Bossman's house in Arlia.  Bossman's two kids are running circles
around Ashton, while Ashton is sweating nervously.
Little boy - "Yay! Big Brother Ashton's here."
Ashton - "Hey, hey ... Stop it you guys. Don't do that!"
Little girl - "Ururun is so cute."
Ururun - "Awroo, awrohr, awrohr."
Little boy - "No way! Gyoro is cooler."
Gyoro - "Awrk!"
Ashton - "Just a minute. TIME OUT..."
Rena enters the house and is shocked [three yellow marks]
Rena - "stop it you two! I told you to stop picking on Gyoro and Ururun."
The little girl and boy stop running and stand on each side of Ashton.  Ashton 
and the kids are looking at Rena.
Little girl - "We're not picking on them."
Little boy - "Right, we're just playing with them."
Rena - "You can see that it bothers Ashton. Just stop it."
Little boy & Little girl - [...]
Little girl - "OK."
Little boy - "Aw, rats. No fair. Rena, you always take Ashton's side..."
Rena starts sweating nervously.
Rena - "Hey!"
The little boy and girl run past Rena and leave the house. 
Little boy - "Yay! Miss Rena got mad!"
Rena turns and watches them leave. After they leave, Ashton speaks.
Ashton - "Whew ... thanks for helping me out, Rena."
Rena turns back towards Ashton.
Rena - "Are you OK? Sorry, Ashton."
Ashton - "Oh, it's OK. Those kids look at me just like any normal person."
Ashton - "To tell the truth, I was worried when you asked me to come to the 
village of Arlia. I didn't know if I could get along with others in my state."
Ashton - "But the people in this village don't treat me specially. I am glad I 
came."
Rena - "Ashton..."

--------------------
Rena and Leon

Leon is standing near Rena's house, running in a circle, playing with a little 
girl and Ketil.
Rena leaves her house and turns toward the children.
Rena - "Leon, lunch is ready!"
The three kids stop and turn towards Rena.  Leon gets a shocked expression 
[three yellow marks].
Leon - "I'm coming."
Ketil and the little girl turn towards Leon.
Leon - "I'll see you later."
Little girl - "OK."
Ketil - "Let's play some more after lunch."
The little girl and Ketil continue playing, running in a circle.  Leon runs up 
to Rena.
Rena - "What kind of games did you play?
Leon - "Hmm, hide-and-seek, tag, ..."
Rena - "Did you have fun?"
Leon - "Yes!"
Rena - "I'm glad."
Leon - "Miss Rena, I really want to know what is for lunch today."
Rena - "Today's lunch is stir-fried vegetables."
Leon - "Ugh. I hate stir-fried vegetables."
Rena - "Don't say that. You won't grow up strong if you don't eat your 
vegetables."
Leon - "OK."
Leon enters the house. Rena is still looking back at the door to her house.
Rena - "This is OK, right. At your age, Leon, you must have still wanted to 
play."

--------------------
Rena and Opera

Rena and Opera are standing on the balcony of Opera's home, looking out over 
the city.
Rena turns towards Opera.
Rena - "Say, Opera. All those things on Expel and Nede really happened, 
right?"
Opera turns to Rena to reply.
Opera - "Why do you suddenly bring that up?"
Rena - "Thinking now about then, our journey of adventures almost seems like 
a dream."
Opera - "Certainly, a lot of time has passed since then..."
Opera turns to look out over the balcony again.
Opera - "But when that adventure ended, I was really surprised when you said 
that you wanted to come to Tetragenes with me."
Rena - "I'm sorry. At the time I didn't realize how much of an imposition my 
request would be..."
Opera turns back to face Rena.
Opera - "Don't you worry about that. I really welcomed your coming."
Opera - "It's just ... your coming with me means that you have abandoned 
Expel."
Opera turns to look out over the balcony.
Opera - "I was afraid that you would regret your decision, Rena."
Rena looks out over the balcony as well.
Rena - "I'm not sad at all -- if I were to say that, it would be a lie, but I 
have no regrets."
Rena - "Ever since I came with you, Opera, I've been able to see lots of 
interesting things..."
Rena turns to face Opera again.
Rena - "And I've been able to find out lots of interesting things."

--------------------
Rena and Ernest

Rena and Ernest are standing next to each other on the dock by the river in 
Arlia.  Both are looking out over the water.
Rena turns towards Ernest.
Rena - "Hey, Ernest. You must really be longing to travel, right?"
Ernest turns towards Rena to reply.
Ernest - "What is the matter, Rena? All of a sudden."
Rena turns back to look at the water.
Rena - "But Ernest, you can't be satisfied with this sort of a tranquil life. 
I know. Ernest, I have seen you sometimes looking up in the sky with a sad 
look on your face."
Rena bows her head.
Rena - "I will be OK, if you are worrying about me. I will wait in this 
village until you come back to me."
Ernest looks back over the water.
Ernest - "Thank you, Rena. But I have no intention of leaving the village."
Ernest - "Certainly, life in this village can be boring. But in this village 
there lies a wonderful treasure that surpasses all of the hidden treasures 
from ancient civilizations."
Ernest - "Rena, you are that treasure."
Rena is shocked by his words [three yellow marks] and turns towards Ernest.
Rena - "Oh, Ernest..."

--------------------
Rena and Noel

Noel is standing in the Shingo Forest, in the area where Claude first appeared.
A number of small furry animals (rabbits, dogs, etc.) are milling about around 
him.
Rena walks into the forest from the southwest entrance.  She stops a few feet 
from the entrance and turns to face Noel (who has his back turned to her).
Rena - "Ah, I thought you would be here."
Noel turns to face Rena.
Noel - "Hi, Rena. What's up?"
Rena - "What is this 'What's up?' stuff!? Didn't you promise to go shopping 
today with me in Cross?"
Noel is startled by Rena's comment [three yellow marks]
Noel - "Oh! That's right. I forgot."
Rena - "I thought so. I've already gotten everything ready to go to Cross."
Noel walks towards Rena.
Noel - "Oh yeah ... thanks."
Noel stops in front of Rena.
Rena - "I can't stand it! With you it's animals all the time. How about paying 
a little attention to me?"

--------------------
Rena and Chisato

Rena and Chisato are standing next to each other over a desk in Rena's room. A 
scroll is laid out on the desk, which Rena is apparently writing on.
Chisato - "So with your help, the Ten Wise Men were defeated in the Nede year 
3700000014. At the same time, you put an end to the long history of Energy 
Nede."
Rena - "to the ... long history of ... Energy Nede."
Rena rolls up the scroll and takes it off the desk.
Rena - "Whew, we are finally finished."
Chisato and Rena turn to face each other.
Chisato - "Yes, it has taken quite a while ... 1-2-3 to finish it."
Rena - "Thank you so much for staying along with me for so long."
Chisato - "No problem at all. I had some free time. But why did you think to 
record the history of Nede after all? Now that Nede is gone, it has no 
particular meaning."
Rena - "I don't care if no one ever looks at it. I just wanted to leave 
evidence in some form that the people of Nede did exist. In order to prove 
that the presence of Nede was not in vain."


====================
CELINE JULES

--------------------
Celine Special - Prince Chris/Clother, of Cross

Celine is in the lobby of the castle of Cross walking towards the front 
entrance.  Two maids, one in a green dress and one in a brown dress, block her 
way.
Celine - "Pardon me, but might I ask you to move out of the way?"
Maid in Brown - "No Milady, it is not safe.  We cannot allow anything to 
happen!"
Celine turns towards the Maid in Brown.
Celine - "There's no need to worry.  I never bungle anything I do."
The Maid in Brown starts sweating nervously.
Maid in Brown - "No Milady.  I will not allow it.  You'll have to do away with 
me first!"
Celine bows her head.
Celine - "Oh, bother!"
Chris speaks off screen and begins walking from the left towards the group.
Chris - "What is all the commotion here?"
Everyone turns towards Chris, and Chris walks to Celine.
Celine - "Chris!?"
Maid - "Why... it's... King Clother!"
Chris and Celine turn towards the maids.
Chris - "what is it? Why the commotion?"
Maid - "Why... it's the queen, sire. She wishes to leave on an adventure..."
Chris - "Oh. Is that all?"
Both maids start sweating nervously.
Maid - "But sire, she mustn't!"
Chris - "My good woman, Expel has many people, but not one of them is fool 
enough to try and hurt Celine. Do you not know how strong she is?"
Maid - "But sire..."
Chris walks closer to Celine.  Celine turns to face Chris.
Chris - "Go where you wish, Celine... but remember, you are our queen. Don't 
forget to return for the harvest festival when autumn comes."
Celine - "You're sure it's all right?"
Chris - "I knew that Cross Castle would be too small to hold you. But I insist 
that you come back uninjured..."
Celine - "I will keep your command. Thank you, Chris."
The maids move aside to let Celine pass, one maid on each side of the entrance 
way.
Celine walks out of the castle.

--------------------
Celine alone

Celine is alone in a dungeon (the same background as part of the mountain 
palace) with a bookshelf.  Celine is rooting through a bookshelf.
Celine picks up a crumpled piece of paper.
Celine - [...]
Celine - "Humph ... It seems like I missed again."
Celine - "That's certainly so. But it's just this hit or miss character that 
makes treasure hunts interesting."
Celine walks towards the northern exit and stops.
Celine - "I'll try going a little deeper. Perhaps some great treasure may be 
waiting in the next place."
Celine walks through the northern exit.

--------------------
Celine and Bowman

Bowman is standing in the middle of the village of refugees on El Continent.  
There are a number of injured people near him.
Bowman - "Hmm. You're getting much better. We should be able to take off the 
bandages next week."
Celine enters the city from the South and turns to Bowman.  Bowman sees her 
and turns towards her.
Celine - "Bowman, my you're working hard, darling."
Bowman - "Hi, Celine. That reminds me. I hear that monsters have begun living 
in a cavern a half day's travel west of here."
Celine - "Well then, shouldn't we go subjugate them?"
Bowman - "You're right. I think we ought to."
Celine turns away from Bowman to look outside the city.
Celine - "Oh my, in this area there are still a lot of monster who attack 
people."
Bowman away from Celine, as if he is talking to himself in thought.
Bowman - "They'll probably make the reconstruction of the Kingdom of El take 
longer than expected."
Celine turns back to face Bowman.
Celine - "Aha! Have you begun to long for your beloved wife back in Linga?"
Bowman turns back to face Celine.
Bowman - "Could that be? Rather than thinking about that, we ought to get 
going."
Bowman walks south and leaves the city.  Celine and the injured people he was 
tending to watch him go.
Celine - "Well then, let's go."
Celine leaves the city as well.

--------------------
Celine and Dias

Dias is walking in a forest, with Celine trailing after him.  Dias stops and 
Celine catches up to Dias.  Without looking at Celine, Dias begins talking.
Dias - "How long are you planning to come along?"
Celine - "I don't know, how long?  If you have to know, perhaps until you pay 
some attention to me."
Dias pauses - [...]
Dias - "Do as you wish..."
Celine - "OK, fine.  I'll do as I please."
Dias begins walking away, and then Celine starts chasing after him.

--------------------
Celine and Precis

Celine and Precis are standing near the painting at the back of the bar in 
Cross.  They appear to be talking to each other.  Two men are walking towards 
them, and stop near them.
Man A - "Hey beautiful, if you're not doing anything how about spending some 
time with me?"
Celine turns towards them.
Celine - "My my. I do believe you're trying to pick me up. But I'm sorry to 
say that I have no needs in that department. Hasta... la vista."
The two men walk closer to Precis, ignoring Celine.
Celine - [...]
Man B - You know, you're really cute. Wanna have tea or something?"
Precis turns towards the men.
Precis - "Huh!? ME??"
Man A - "Yeah! Come out with us, we'll really do it up!"
Precis turns a little bit toward the southern man.
Precis - "Well... um... Can Celine come too?"
Man A - "Oh, that's perfect! Two of you and two of us! Sure!"
Celine - [...]
Man B - "Is your friend as cute as you are?"
Precis turns towards Celine.
Precis - "What are you talking about? She's been standing right there."
Both men turn towards each other in confusion [?]
They both turn towards Celine.
Man A - "Huh? Oh no, you mean... that lady...?
Man B - "Wait a minute... How come you're hanging out with someone so much 
older than you?"
Celine starts [steaming].
Celine - "You really should learn some manners, you know? Now get out of here 
before I split your heads in two!!"
While Celine is still [steaming], the two men start sweating nervously and 
bolt out of the bar.
Celine, still miffed, turns towards Precis.
Celine - "Really! Men these days have NO taste WHATSOEVER! ...Trying to pick 
up Precis over me..."

--------------------
Celine and Ashton

Celine and Ashton are in a fashion store (the same fashion store layout as in 
the destroyed Clik).  Celine is standing at the shelves at the back, while 
Ashton is standing near the racks of clothing in the middle of the store.  
Celine walks up to Ashton.
Celine - "Ashton darling? Which looks better on me?"
Ashton - "Why, both."
Celine gets angry [steaming]
Celine - "Ashton! Just what do you mean by that? Are you saying I should just 
wear any old thing?!"
Ashton starts sweating nervously.
Ashton - "Ah... That's not it at all Celine..."
Celine moves closer to Ashton.
Celine - "Then what ARE you trying to say?!"
Ashton - "Well... what I mean is... you see... you look so good in both of 
them... I just can't make up my mind... I think..."
Celine steps backwards to the racks at the back of the store.
Celine - "Well then, why didn't just say so? I'll take them both."
Ashton - "Huh!?"
Celine walks up to the sales counter, as Ashton stands watching her, and then 
she turns back to Ashton.
Celine - "Right...? Ashton [music note]"
Ashton - "Ah hah haa..."
Ashton starts walking towards the sales counter, as Celine faces the clerk.
Ashton "Oy vey..."

--------------------
Celine and Leon.

Leon is sitting at a table in his research lab at Lacour Castle.
Celine enters the lab and walks up to the table to talk to Leon.
Leon - "Welcome back. How was the new Heraldic Crest?"
Celine - "It felt quite good, actually. Just one thing though... the 
recitation of the spell seemed a bit long."
Leon - "Really? I guess there's still room for improvement then."
Celine suddenly thinks of something [three yellow marks]
Celine - "Oh! That's right. That reminds me, there's a small souvenir."
Celine puts a tattered scroll on the table in front of Leon.
Celine - "This... It seems as though it is written in ancient characters."
Leon suddenly thinks of something too [three yellow marks]
Leon - "I wonder what kind of book it is. I'll try to decipher it right away."
Celine nods her head.
Celine - "Please. Who knows? It may be a great discovery."

--------------------
Celine and Opera

Celine and Opera are standing, talking, at a cafe in Mars Village.
Opera - "Long time, no see."
Celine - "That's right. I'm glad you came."
Opera - "By chance, I was in the neighborhood. I just wanted to come and see 
your face."
Opera - "So, what's the news? Did you find a good man?"
Celine begins sweating nervously
Celine - "Hang on there ... all of a sudden..."
Celine takes a step closer to Opera in defiance, still sweating.
Celine - "Now that you mention it, what about you, Opera?"
Opera begins sweating as well.
Celine and Opera begin laughing nervously at the same time.
Opera - "Haha ... ahahaha ..."
Celine - "Haha ... ahahaha ..."
Both Celine and Opera turn away from each other and both face south.
They stop sweating, and both lower their heads in resignation.
Opera - "Hah..."
Celine - "Hah..."

--------------------
Celine and Ernest - Celine's affection is greater 

Ernest and Celine are standing next to each other on a mysterious planet, 
standing at the front of a large opening/door of a building or cave apparently 
built into the face of a mountain.  They are also accompanied by three other 
workers part of an exploration/archaeological team.  Everyone is looking into 
the entrance.
Celine - "It seems that the altar is deeper inside here."
Ernest - "You're right. But it seems odd that there would be ruins of such a 
scale on an outlying planet like this."
Celine turns towards Ernest.
Celine - "Well then, what should we do? Perhaps we had better report back 
before we proceed."
Ernest turns towards Celine.
Ernest - "Now just hold on, pretty lady. We haven't come this far to go back 
empty handed."
Ernest leads the way, walking into the cavern.  The workers begin to follow 
him, except for Celine and one other worker.  
Ernest and two workers have entered the cavern.  Celine and another worker are 
just standing there.
Celine - [...]
Celine - "Humph... Our 'archeologist' seems to be more of a treasure hunter 
than an academic."
Celine and the remaining worker walk into the cavern.

--------------------
Celine and Ernest - Ernest's affection is greater

Celine is alone in her room in Mars Village.  She is standing next to her bed, 
apparently deep in thought.
Celine - [...]
Celine - "I know my thoughts could never get to you."
Celine - "I wonder if I will ever be able to see you again...?"
Celine - [...]
Celine - "No. Sometime I will..."
Ernest walks into Celine's room, walking up behind her, while talking.
Ernest - "We will meet. If you keep thinking of me, we will definitely 
meet..."
Celine - [!]
Celine turns to face Ernest.
Celine - "This can't be ... it's a dream ... or is it..."
Ernest - "Unfortunately, this is no dream. I am standing in front of you right 
now."
Celine takes a couple steps closer to Ernest.
Celine - "Why are you here? I was sure that you had returned to your own 
planet..."
Ernest - "Your call brought me here."
Celine - "Gimme a break..."
Ernest - "Hahaha ... Just a joke."
Ernest - "Sorry about being so late."
Celine - "Don't worry about that. You are now here with me. Just that is 
enough for me..."

--------------------
Celine and Noel

Noel is standing surrounded by furry animals outside a cabin in the woods (the 
same cabin/woods sprites as the Mars Village forest where the children were 
rescued).  Noel is looking at the animals.
Celine enters from the right and walks up to Noel.
Celine - "I see, you were here after all."
Noel turns to Celine.
Noel - "Is that you, Celine?"
Celine - "Don't give me this 'Is that you, Celine'? stuff.  Weren't we 
supposed to be having a date today?"
Noel is shocked.
Noel - "Oh! That's right, now that you say so."
Celine - "I waited until way after when we were supposed to come. I figured 
you had forgotten."
Noel starts sweating nervously
Noel - "Oh, sorry about that, Celine."
Celine - "How insulting, ... why don't you pay a little more attention to me 
rather than just your animals."

--------------------
Celine and Chisato

Chisato and Celine are in a dungeon (the same background as part of the 
mountain palace) with a bookshelf.  Chisato is rooting through a bookshelf, 
while Celine stands in the center of the room looking at Chisato.
Chisato picks up a crumpled piece of paper.
Chisato - [...]
Chisato - "Nothing at all that we are looking for is here. The only thing we 
found is this useless crumpled paper..."
Celine - "Well... these things do happen."
Chisato turns towards Celine.
Chisato - "But we went to so much trouble. Don't you think it wouldn't hurt to 
find a little more?"
Celine - "That's certainly so. But it's just this hit or miss character that 
makes treasure hunts interesting."
Celine starts walking towards the northern entrance, and then turns towards 
Chisato.
Celine - "Well, shall we go a little deeper, darlings? Some great treasure may 
be waiting in the next place."
Celine turns and continues walking through the north exit, with Chisato 
trailing behind her.


====================
BOWMAN JEAN

--------------------
Bowman alone

Bowman is standing behind the counter in his pharmacy.  Keith enters and walks 
up to the counter.
Keith - "Hi Bowman."
Bowman - "Keith. Haven't seen you in a while."
Keith - "Why the face? You look like you haven't seen me in years or 
something."
Bowman - "Ah... it's nothing..."
Keith - [?]
Bowman perks up [three yellow lines]
Bowman - "What can I do for you?"
Keith - "Aah... Oh yeah, I've almost completed the translation of that book. I 
thought I'd come and tell you about it."
Bowman - [?]
Bowman - "Book?"
Keith - "Come on Bowman. Wake up! The ancient writings that you and your 
friends brought to me to translate the other day!!"
Bowman perks up [three yellow lines]
Bowman - "Oh... right."
Keith - "It seems like it's an ancient myth. It talks about an ancient 
paradise that existed long ago."
Bowman - [?]
Bowman - "A paradise?"
Keith - "Yes. A paradise. It's hard to read everything though, because the 
pages have deteriorated so much."
Bowman - [...]
Bowman - "The name of that paradise wouldn't be Nede, would it?"
Keith is really shocked [yellow !]
Keith - "How did you know?"
Bowman - [...]
Bowman - "Just lucky I guess..."

--------------------
Bowman and Dias

Bowman and Dias are standing and talking to each other in the middle of a 
forest.
Dias - "Aren't you going back to Linga?"
Bowman - "Even though we may have defeated the Ten Wise Men, many monsters 
remain. Until they've been subjugated, we can't say that the commotion is over. 
That's why I decided to continue my travel for a little longer."
Dias - "Indeed ... So do you know where you're going?"
Bowman - "For now, I will go across to the continent of El. I suspect they 
will need help in reconstruction."
Dias - "I see..."
Bowman - "But rather than that, what are you going to do?"
Dias - "I guess I'll just keep on traveling like I have been..."
Bowman - "Well then, why don't you come with me to the continent of El? There 
are still many monsters over there. They certainly have a need for a man like 
you."
Dias - "That may be so. Sounds like a good idea."
Bowman - "Well, then it's a deal. Let's go."
Bowman and Dias then walk west, out of the forest.

--------------------
Bowman and Ashton

Ashton and Bowman are fighting a purple flying manta ray type enemy on the 
shores of El continent (the same background where Rena and her group washed up 
after the boat was destroyed).  They have it surrounded and are attacking it 
from opposite sides.  Ashton dashes into the enemy and slices him into 
oblivion.  
Ashton puts away his swords and Bowman walks up to him.
Ashton - "Whew. In this area there are still a lot of monsters who attack 
people."
Bowman turns away and looks at the sea.
Bowman - "Yeah. The reconstruction of the Kingdom of El should take longer 
than expected."
Ashton turns toward the sea as well.
Ashton - "But, I think we have subjugated nearly all of the monsters in this 
area."
Bowman turns his head towards Ashton.
Bowman - "Thanks, Ashton.  You really didn't need to come along to do this."
Ashton turns toward Bowman.
Ashton - "Don't give me that. You're treating me like a stranger. There are 
people in the Kingdom of El who need me. That's enough for me."
Bowman turns his head back to the sea.
Bowman - "I see..."

--------------------
Bowman and Leon

Bowman is standing behind the counter of his pharmacy.  Leon is standing on 
the opposite side, pleading with Bowman.
Leon - "Bowman, won't you consider returning to the laboratory at Lacour? His 
Majesty said that if you would come back he would re-institute the 
pharmaceutical research division."
Bowman shakes his head.
Bowman - "Sorry Leon... I can't do that even if its' you who ask me to."
Leon - "Why NOT?! The Lacour Royal Laboratories are the envy of all the 
research institutions in the world!"
Bowman - "It's not that I wouldn't like to just spend my days buried in work 
in a laboratory. I would. But you forget about the most important things when 
you do that. I don't want to research only for the sake of results. I want to 
see the smiles on the faces of the people I help."
Leon gets annoyed [scribbly marks]
Leon - "Oh Bowman! I give up! Stupid!!"
Leon runs out of the pharmacy.  Bowman turns back to face over his counter.
Bowman - "Whew...!"
Bowman's wife, Nineh enters the pharmacy and walks up to the counter.
Nineh - "Was that Leon again?"
Bowman turns to his wife.
Bowman - "Yep... It's pretty tough for him. I don't think there's anyone in 
the world that can keep up with him in the lab. Being a genius is a lonely 
occupation..."
Nineh - "I guess so..."
Bowman - "Even so, he can't go on being a child forever. Sooner or later he'll 
have to learn how to figure out the solution to his problems by himself."

--------------------
Bowman and Opera

Bowman is standing in the middle of the village of refugees on El Continent.  
There are a number of injured people near him.
Bowman - "Hmm. You're getting much better. We should be able to take off the 
bandages next week."
Opera enters the city from the South and turns to Bowman.  Bowman sees her and 
turns towards her.
Opera - "Hey Bowman, working hard?"
Opera - "I pretty much cleaned up that monster next to the west."
Bowman - "Thanks, Opera. I wanted to go myself, but I was too busy."
Opera - "Don't worry about it. I had no trouble handling those guys all by 
myself."
Bowman - "Are you really sure that you're OK not going back to your own 
planet?"
Opera turns away from Bowman, looking towards the exit from the city.
Opera - "I've already come this far. So I might as well finish the task to the 
end."
Bowman - "But the reconstruction of the Kingdom of El may take longer than 
expected."
Opera turns back to face Bowman.
Opera - "What are you saying? Whether it takes a month or a year, it's not much 
difference once we get here. I'll stay with you to the end."
Bowman turns his head away from Opera, almost in embarrassment.
Bowman - "Thanks a lot."
Opera - "You thanking me? Now that's a change."

--------------------
Bowman and Ernest

Ernest are standing, talking to each other in a bar in the Lacour Castle town.
Bowman - "Sure has been a long time."
Ernest - "Yeah, gotta be more than 3 years by now..."
Bowman - "Where've you been anyway? Come by more often all right? Cause I 
can't visit YOU."
Ernest - "That's true, heh heh, sorry, I'll try to do better. Been busy at the 
university..."
Bowman - "So why is this beautiful student of yours Opera chasing you? Been 
robbing the cradle have we?"
Ernest - [...]
Ernest - "Ah... THAT is a whole other matter..."
Bowman starts sweating nervously.
Bowman - "Huh? Is that a 'yes' then?"
Ernest moves closer to Bowman.
Ernest - "Actually, did you know that Opera has a younger sister?"
Bowman - "No. First I've heard of it."
Ernest - "Name's Opal. She's just like her sister. When she gets an idea in 
head, there's no stop..."
While Ernest was talking a woman enters the bar, looking the same as Opera, 
but with pink/reddish hair instead.
Bowman notices Opal [sweatdrop] and turns to face her, as she stands in the 
entrance.
Opal then turns towards Ernest, and is alerted to his presence [three yellow 
marks]
Opal - "THERE you are, my dear professor 9!"
Ernest is shocked to hear her voice [!] and turns to face Opal.
Ernest - "O... Opal!?"
Opal walks up to Ernest and stands facing him.
Opal - "How could you run away and leave me like that!? Do you realize what I 
had to go through to find you?"
Ernest - [?]
Ernest - "H-how did you find me...?"
Opal - "Opera told me you were probably on this planet, so I borrowed her ship 
and got here."
Ernest now starts to get annoyed [scribbly marks].
Ernest - "Oh... well, that... must have been quite a trip..."
Opal moves closer to Ernest.
Opal - "But you know? I'm s-o-o relieved I found you? You know why? When I 
landed on this planet? I just, like, bumped the ship a little? And now, it 
won't move AT ALL? ...And I was like, whatEVER! So I'm all, what if I don't 
find Ernest? Yaah.. So I'm just going to like stay on this planet for the 
rest of my life...? AS IF!! And I only just like bumped the ship this little 
bit..."
Bowman - [sweatdrop]
Bowman - "Well you certainly have found yourself a double-barreled shotgun..."
Ernest turns away from both of them.
Ernest - "I have no... idea... what to do."

--------------------
Bowman and Noel

Bowman is standing behind the counter of his pharmacy.  Noel is standing next 
to him.  A line of about four people stretch from in front of Noel to the 
entrance of the pharmacy.  bowman is looking at the line.
Young Man - "Ow... ow... Excuse me... I think I broke a bone in a fall..."
Noel - "Is that so? Well that must be painful. Let's see what I can do."
Noel casts a healing spell on the Young Man.
Young Man - [!]
Young Man - "Huh...? I can move it! It's all better now!!"
The Young Man leaves the pharmacy. The rest of the line moves forward toward 
Noel
Granny - "I think I've caught a cold..."
Noel - "Well well well, we can't have that now, can we? Try this."
Noel casts a healing spell on the Granny.
Granny - [!]
Granny - "Land sakes! Why now I feel light as a feather!"
The Granny leaves the pharmacy, and the rest of the line moves forward again.
Bowman's wife, Nineh enters the pharmacy and walks up the counter near Bowman.  
She turns to look at the line of people, then turns back to face Bowman.
Nineh - "My! It's always nice to see so many people in the store."
Bowman turns to his wife in frustration - [scribbly marks]
Bowman - "Yeah, but if it keeps going as well as this no one will have reason 
to show up anymore."
Bowman turns to look at Noel. Noel casts a healing spell on the person in 
front of the line, an older lady.

--------------------
Bowman and Chisato

Bowman is standing behind the counter of his pharmacy.  His wife, Nineh, is 
standing next to him. 
Chisato bursts through the door and runs up to the counter.
Chisato - "Here you go! 10 bunches each of 'Clarisage', 'Dill Whip'... and 
then there's 'Artemis Leaf' and 'Aceras'. OK?"
Chisato puts a bunch of herbs on the counter in front of Bowman.
Bowman - [...]
Bowman - "Right... Thanks Chisato."
Chisato - "Now it's off to the Lasguss Mountains to gather some 'Metox'."
Bowman - [!]
Chisato - "See you in about a month. TTFN, Ta taa for now [music note]"
Chisato turns to leave.
Bowman - "Hey! Wait a minute!"
Chisato runs and leaves the pharmacy without waiting to hear Bowman.
Bowman - [...] "Hold on there. Do you realize how far the Lasguss Mountains 
are from here?"
Nineh turns to face Bowman.
Nineh - "That new girl's certainly a hard worker. She probably deserves a 
raise, don't you think?"
Bowman turns to face his wife.
Bowman - "She's not a hard worker, she's a kind of lunatic..."


====================
DIAS FLAC

--------------------
Dias alone

Dias is standing in the forest at the site of where his parents and sister 
died.  He has placed a bouquet of flowers at the foot of the tree, and is 
looking at the flowers.
Dias - "Sorry about not coming by for a while.  A lot has happened..."
Dias - "Did you see me, Cecille?  I bet you never imagined that I'd save the 
entire Universe..."
Dias - "Where should I start... it's been so long and I have so much to 
tell..."

--------------------
Dias and Precis

Dias and Precis's father, Graft are sitting at the dining room table in 
Precis's house.
Graft - [...]
Precis walks in from the front door and stops near the mat on the floor and 
turns towards Graft and Dias.
Precis - "What are you tow [sic] doing here...? Why don't you say something?"
Graft - [...]
Graft - "...don't know what to talk about..."

--------------------
Dias and Ashton

Dias and Ashton are standing in a clearing in the middle of some rock 
outcroppings, and grass on the east edge (it looks like part of the mountains 
where Metox was found).  A couple of bandits are standing near them, and a 
little girl is sweating nervously behind the bandits.  The bandits are holding 
the little girl hostage.  Ashton has his swords drawn and is standing in a 
battle ready stance.
Ashton - "Take my advice, Just surrender quietly. Your penalty may be 
reduced."
Dias - "The hostage's been rescued already. You haven't got anything left..."
Bandit - "Shut up!"
The bandits move towards Dias and Ashton, but Ashton and Dias cut them down in 
a swirl of fast and violent swordplay.  They both do a brief victory pose.
The little girl runs up to the both of them.  Ashton and Dias face each other.
Ashton - "Quite a show, Dias... as usual."
Dias - "You too. There aren't many with faster swords than mine."
Ashton - "You know, the turmoil over the Sorcery Globe has ended but there 
doesn't seem to be any end to the conflicts."
Dias - "That's just the way it is... it's reality. And it means there's no 
shortage of jobs for men like us."
Ashton - "That's for sure."
Ashton turns towards the child.
Ashton - "Well... this job is finished when this child is taken back to the 
Town."
Ashton turns back towards Dias.
Dias - "You take the child. You made the hostage rescue possible."
Dias starts walking to the eastern edge of the screen.  Ashton turns to watch 
him leave.
Ashton - "Same old Dias... well, never mind. See you again sometime."
Dias stops and talks without turning around.
Dias - "Maybe as enemies..."
Dias leaves.  Ashton stares off after him.
Ashton - "Dias is the last person I want to fight. Right you two?"
Gyoro - "Rowrf!"  Ururun - "Awroooorf!"

--------------------
Dias and Opera

Dias is walking in a forest, with Opera walking behind him.  
Dias and Opera stop.  Dias and Opera stand back to back.  Dias is alerted to 
something [three yellow marks], while Opera is shocked by something in her 
direction [!]
Two flying manta ray type enemies enter, one from each side of the screen, and
hover at the edges.
Dias - "Enemies..."
Opera - "We're surrounded."
Dias - "Back off. You'll just be in the way."
Opera - "You're joking, right? I'll show you that I can at least protect your 
back."
Dias and Opera then run towards the enemies (Dias to the left, and Opera to 
the right), as the screen fades out.

--------------------
Dias and Ernest

Dias and Ernest are standing near the painting at the back of the bar in Cross, 
talking to each other.
Dias - "Well, what is it this time?"
Ernest - "Right, OK. The other day I found out about this planet that has a 
completely unknown civilization. Problem is, the place is lousy with vicious 
monsters, see...?"
Dias - [...]
Dias - "So you want a bodyguard, right?"
Ernest - "...Yep. You got it. Whaddya say?"
Dias - "It's a deal."
Ernest gets closer to Dias, probably to shake his hand to confirm the deal.
Ernest - "Sorry to impose on you again, but anyone else just gets in the way."
Dias - "No need to apologize. You offered the job. I took the offer. That's 
all."

--------------------
Dias and Noel

Dias and Noel are in the room of an Inn.  The sun is shining, and Noel is 
sleeping in bed [Zzz]. Dias is standing next to his bed.
Dias - "It's 'bout time to move on to the next town."
Dias starts getting annoyed [scribbly marks].  He gives the bed a swift kick, 
jolting Noel awake Noel - [!]
Dias - "Hey, wake up!"
Noel calms down.
Noel - "Wha, huh, huh, huh? What is going on?"
Dias - "It's morning already. We're moving on."
Noel turns to Dias.
Noel - "(Yawns) OK, OK already."
Dias - "I can't believe it. Every day, you sleep so much, You're sleeping half 
the day."
Noel - "I can't help it. I'm tired, so I sleep. (Stretches)"
Dias - "Ever since we've had to travel with you, our pace has been cut in 
half."
Noel falls asleep again as Dias is talking [Zzz]
Dias kicks the bed again and jolts Noel awake 
Noel - [!]
Dias - "Hey, I'm talking to you! Don't go back to sleep!"
Noel - "(Yawns) Aaaaah."
Noel - [...]
Noel - "(Limply) OK, OK. I'm up now."
Dias - "Sleeping all the time, are you sure you aren't really a cat?"
Noel - "OUCH! That's uncalled for!?"
Dias - "It's the only explanation I can think of..."
As Dias talks, Noel falls asleep again.
Dias gets really annoyed [scribbly marks], and kicks the bed so hard Noel is 
jolted [!] out of the bed and flies across the room, as the camera fades to 
black.

--------------------
Dias and Chisato

Dias and Chisato are standing near the base of a tree where Dias's parents and 
sister died.  A bouquet of flowers is at the base of the tree.  Both are 
looking at the flowers.
Dias - "Sorry about not coming by for awhile..."
Chisato - "Pleased to meet you. My name is Chisato Madison. I know that I am 
not worthy of your son, but please be good to me."
Chisato turns slightly to the north. She may be bowing her head...
Chisato - "Mr. and Mrs. Flac... and dear little Cecille. Please let me take 
care of Dias."
Dias turns away from Chisato to face west
Dias - "Hey, what's that about!"
Chisato - " But you... silly Dias, it's out of character for you to be 
embarrassed like that."
Dias gets annoyed [scribbly marks]
Dias - "Come on, let's go!"
Dias starts walking away to the western exit.
Chisato turns towards Dias, watching him walk away
Chisato - "Huh!? Wait up!"
Dias stops near the exit and turns to Chisato.
Dias - "Come on, let's go."
Chisato walks up to stand near Dias.  Dias turns toward the flowers.
Dias - "I promise to come back in a month..."
They both walk away, as the camera pans back to the flowers.


====================
PRECIS F. NEWMAN 

--------------------
Precis alone

Precis is in her garage working on an orange mechanical device in the center 
of the garage.  She runs back and forth between the machine and a tool bench.  
Her father, Graft, enters the garage from the dining room, and stops near some 
tires.
Graft - "Hey Precis.  Waddya say to some tea?"
Precis continues working on the machine, running back and forth between the 
bench and the machine as they talk.
Precis - "Hmm...  OK, in a bit.  I just want to finish this..."
Graft - "You never change, do you..."
Precis stops and turns towards her father.
Precis - "Whazzat...?"
Graft walks closer to her daughter.
Graft - "You've been off on an adventure to save the entire Universe.  Don't 
you think you might have gained some sort of... maturity or something?"
Precis - "Why should I be any different?  Besides, I don't think that the life 
I led up to that point was so meaningless that a few months of an adventure 
could make any significant changes in me anyway."
Precis begins running towards the dining room.
Precis continues - "...Whatever.  Weren't we going to have tea?  Let's have 
tea <music note>"
Graft just stands there.
Graft - "Hmm...  So adventure or no adventure, I guess she's just the way she 
is..."

--------------------
Precis and Ashton

Precis is chasing Ashton around the table in Precis's house.  They stop near 
the dresser, and Ashton turns towards Precis.
Precis - "Why are you running away?  I told you everything'll be OK!"
Ashton starts sweating nervously.
Ashton - "Come on...  That's what you said the last time you messed up."
Precis gets angry and [steaming].
Precis - "That was then!  It's different this time.  I'm telling you there's 
no chance whatsoever that this machine will mess up.  Cross my heart and hope 
to die, stick a..."
Ashton - "OK OK, I get your point.  Look, it's not that urgent, I'm OK as I 
am."
Ashton continues - "Besides, like I told you, I don't have anything against 
Gyoro and Ururun."
Precis - "Well we all like Gyoro and Ururun, but they might not like being 
stuck to you that way, you know.  Did you ever think of that?."
A question mark appears over Ashton's head.  Ashton starts becoming confused.
Ashton - "Huh...?"
A sweatdrop appears on Precis.  Precis gets exasperated.
Precis - "Ooh...  Never mind!"
Precis gets angry and [steaming].
Precis - "Look Ashton.  The Bottom line is that if you, Gyoro and Ururun were 
separated, no one would complain, right?"
Ashton - "Well, yes... but it might HURT!"
Precis - "Oh come on, be a MAN willya?!"
Ashton turns away
Ashton - "Oh!!"
Ashton bolts past Precis, runs around the table and towards the garage door.
Precis begins chasing after Ashton, but trips and falls on her face as she 
steps off the living room platform, and Ashton stops.
Precis - "Ouch!  Ow ow ow ow..."
Ashton turns around and walks to Precis's side.
Ashton - "Are you all right Precis!?"
Precis gets up and turns towards Ashton.
Precis - "Mmm... yeah... I'm OK."
Ashton moves closer to Precis.
Ashton - "Thank goodness!  Precis, if something happened to you, I don't know 
what I'd..."
Precis - "Why... Ashton..."
A pregnant pause, and something begins to happen, but...
Gyoro - "Rowrf?"
Precis - "GYORO!  Have some CLASS willya?  At time like this you're supposed 
to look the other way and pretend nothing's happening, OK?!"

--------------------
Precis and Leon

Precis and Leon are standing in the road near Keith's house in Linga. Precis 
is standing next to an orange machine, while Leon is standing on the opposite 
side, a little further back. Both are looking at the machine.
Precis works on the machine, then walks away and turns towards Leon.
Precis - "OK! It's DONE!"
Leon turns toward Precis.
Leon - "It's still at the theoretical stage. It has to be tested. We still 
can't be sure it will work."
Precis - "Oh it'll work all right. We designed it after all. How could it 
fail?"
Leon turns back toward the machine.
Leon - "But how can we know what will happen with a combination of Heraldic 
Arts and machinery?"
Precis - "Leon...! You're such a worrywart!"
Leon turns back to Precis.
Leon - "I'm not a worrywart, you're just over-optimistic, Precis."
Both Leon and Precis turn toward the machine
Precis - "Oh YEAH!?"
Leon - "YEAH!!"
The machine is activated.  The machine starts spewing smoke [steaming].  
Leon and Precis start sweating nervously, and then look towards each other.
A laser blast shoots out between Leon and Precis.
Precis - "Oh no! Hey!! LOOK OUT!!!!"
Leon - "Aaaaaaah!!"
Leon and Precis both run away from the machine towards the front of the screen.
The machine continues spinning, spitting smoke momentarily, and then barrels 
after them.

--------------------
Precis and Opera

Precis and Opera are standing next to each other looking out over the balcony 
of Opera's home.  
Opera turns to Precis.
Opera - "Say, Precis, do you have any regrets about coming to Tetragenes with 
me?"
Precis turns to Opera
Precis - "What's this, all of a sudden?"
Opera turns back to look over the balcony edge
Opera - "I brought you here because you asked me to, but sometimes I wonder if 
it was for the best."
Opera turns back to Precis.
Opera - "Doesn't coming with me mean that you have abandoned Expel?"
Precis turns to look over the balcony edge again
Precis - "You don't need to be worried about that, Opera."
Precis - "Didn't I decide to come myself? Even if I had regrets, it is all my 
own responsibility."
Opera - "I keep think that it's my fault that your father will be sad..."
Precis turns back to face Opera
Precis - "It's all right. I had to leave the nest sometime. Even my father 
says that."
Precis turns back to look over the balcony
Precis - "I guess I've left the nest and gone a little further away than he 
expected."

--------------------
Precis and Ernest

Precis's father, Graft, is sitting in the living room of his and Precis's house
watching TV.
Precis runs through the elevator door that goes to her room and stops at near 
the stepping stool to talk to her dad.
Precis - "Poppa, I'm going on a date. See ya later."
Graft turns to face Precis.
Graft - "Huh? Oh, OK. Where are you going?"
Precis - "Uh, let's see, oh right, today I'm going to Tetragenes."
Graft - "Tetragons? I've never heard of the place."
Precis - "Don't worry, you can see it from here after dark."
Precis then turns to leave.
Precis - "Oh. OK. See you later then." (probably meant to be Graft's line)
Graft turns back to watch TV. Precis runs to the front door as Ernest walks in.
Ernest - "Were about to head out."
Precis - "Right. Sorry to be later. OK, let's go!"
Ernest walks out with Precis running after him.  After they leave, Precis's 
words sink in to Graft.
Graft - [?]
Graft - "...'You can see from here after dark'? ...What did she mean by 
that...?"

--------------------
Precis and Noel

Noel and Precis are standing side-by-side surrounded by furry animals outside 
a cabin in the woods (the same cabin/woods sprites as the Mars Village forest 
where the children were rescued).  Both are looking at the animals.
Noel - "The sunlight feels nice."
Precis - "It is so nice and warm, I feel good."
Noel - "Really... I somehow have gotten really sleepy."
Precis turns eastwards.
Precis - "How about a nap over there."
Precis walks westwards, and continues as Noel turns towards Precis' retreating 
back.
Noel - "Uh, wait a minute."
Noel follows Precis westwards.

--------------------
Precis and Chisato

Graft is sitting at the dining room table in Precis's house, watching TV.
Chisato bursts through the front door at breakneck speed.
Chisato -"Hiya!"
Chisato dashes to the elevator to Precis's room.  Chisato can be overheard 
from upstairs talking to Precis.
Chisato - "Precis! Did you hear the scoop? There's a mysterious object that 
has landed in the western desert of Cross!"
The elevator opens and Chisato and Precis exit.  They begin to run towards the 
exit. Precis stops and calls out to Chisato, who stops too.
Precis - "Well, well, where we gonna go then?"
Chisato turns around to Precis.
Chisato - "It's the desert west of the Lasguss Mountains! We have to hurry or 
we'll be too late!"
Chisato then turns around and bolts through the front door.
Chisato - "Bye...!"
Precis is still standing still.
Precis - "Ah... Wait!"
Precis turns to her father.
Precis - "Poppa! I'm going to Cross, OK? Don't worry, I'll be back in about a 
month."
Precis then bolts through the front door.
Graft just stares at the door [sweat drop]
Graft - "I'm glad you have some friends now, but I could do with a bit more 
peace and quiet..."


====================
ASHTON ANCHORS

--------------------
Ashton Special - Eleanor

Eleanor is looking at her desk.  Ashton enters the room from the stairs.  
Eleanor turns toward Ashton.
Eleanor - "Ah!  It's big brother Ashton."
Eleanor runs to Ashton and starts circling him.
Eleanor - "Yay!"
Eleanor stops running and Ashton turns towards her.
Ashton - "Long time now see, Eleanor.  How are you doing?  How has your health 
been since then?"
Eleanor - "Fine.  I've been just great.  And it's all thanks to big brother 
Ashton."
Gyoro and Ururun start squabbling.
Eleanor - "Oh, I'm sorry.  You two, Gyoro and Ururun have been working hard 
too.  Thank you, you two."
The dragons stop fighting.
Gyoro - "Awrk."  Ururun - "Aroo aroo."
Eleanor - "And big brother.  I really want to thank you."
Ashton - "If you believe, your wishes will always come true.  Eleanor, I'll 
work hard too, so I want you to live with all your heart."
Eleanor - "OK.  I'll work hard."

--------------------
Ashton alone

Ashton is walking alone at the base of Lasguss Mountains.  Ashton then stops 
after walking a bit.
Ashton - "So it's been a year since then ... I wonder how everyone is doing."
Ashton - "It was a short trip, but it left me lots of memories."
Gyoro and Ururun start fighting (or at least getting squirrelly to point 
something out).
Gyoro - "Awrk, awrk, urk."
Ashton - "You're right. We will meet them again. I know it..."

--------------------
Ashton and Leon

Leon is walking in front of Ashton in a dungeon and enter a T-intersection.  
The dungeon looks the same as the mountain palace.  
Leon stops in the middle of the intersection, while Ashton is still near the 
entrance.
Ashton - "Do you really think there is a way of separating me from Gyoro and 
Ururun in this place?"
Leon turns around and starts [steaming] at Ashton.
Leon - "What is this? Are you saying that all of the information I have 
collected is wrong?"
Ashton walks closer to Leon and starts sweating nervously.
Ashton - "No, I'm not saying that, but..."
Leon - "I'm not wrong. If we use the power of the precious jewel further back, 
we will be able to separate big brother Ashton from the Demon Dragons without 
hurting either."
Ashton - "But will that really work? I have a hard time believing it."
Leon walks closer to Ashton.
Leon - "It took me a whole year to compile this information. Are you saying 
that you don't believe me?"
Ashton - "I didn't mean that..."
Leon - "Anyway, let's go. When we find the precious jewel, everything will 
become clear."
Ashton and Leon start walking towards the northeast exit and fades to black.

--------------------
Ashton and Noel

Noel and Ashton are standing side-by-side surrounded by furry animals outside 
a cabin in the woods (the same cabin/woods sprites as the Mars Village forest 
where the children were rescued).  Both are looking at the animals.
Ashton - "The sunlight feels good."
Noel - "Yes it does. When it's this warm, it makes me sleepy."
Ashton perks up [three yellow marks] and turns towards Noel.
Ashton - "Oh that's right. I was wondering, Noel, what are we going to do 
about this month's living expenses? We are almost out of money..."
Noel - "Aaaah. For now, can we think about that later? I am so sleepy..."
Ashton - "You're right. Let's talk about that after a nap... We will work it 
out somehow."
Ashton turns and begins walking to the eastern exit.  After a few steps he 
turns back to Noel.
Ashton - "With the sun shining just there, I found the perfect place for a 
nap."
Noel turns towards Ashton.
Ashton - "It is warmest just now. Come on, let's go."
Noel - "Yes, let's."
They both walk towards the eastern exit as it fades out.

--------------------
Ashton and Chisato

Chisato is walking in front of Ashton in a dungeon and enter a T-intersection.  
The dungeon looks the same as the mountain palace.  
Chisato stops in the middle of the intersection, while Ashton is still near 
the entrance.
Ashton - "Is it really in this place?"
Chisato turns around and starts [steaming] at Ashton.
Chisato - "Are you saying that my information is wrong?"
Ashton walks closer to Chisato and starts sweating nervously.
Ashton - "No, I'm not saying that, but..."
Chisato - "It's OK. I'm sure that somewhere there is a way of dispelling 
Ashton's curse.  And also a way of saving Gyoro and Ururun."
Ashton - "But we have been searching for a year. Now that we've searched for 
so long and still not found it, it must be hopeless."
Chisato walks closer to Ashton.
Chisato - "Don't be so fainthearted. You think of things too negatively. You 
have to live more positively in the world. Understand?"
Ashton gets a little exasperated [sweat drop].
Ashton - "I don't know if it's so good to be too positive like you, 
Chisato..."
Chisato - "Did you say something?"
Ashton starts sweating nervously again.
Ashton - "No, no... nothing..."
Chisato - "Anyway, let's go further. You will find what you're looking for as 
long as you don't give up."
Ashton and Chisato start walking towards the northeast exit and fades to black.


====================
LEON D.S. GEESTE

--------------------
Leon alone

Leon is playing with a little boy and girl, running in the streets of Lacour 
in the courtyard at the entrance to the city.
Leon's parents (his mother, Florice, and his father, Murdoch) enter from the
north, walking from Lacour Castle.
Florice - "Time to eat now!!"
Leon turns towards his parents.  The other kids stop and look towards his 
parents as well.
Leon - "Yes Mama."
Leon walks up and stands next to his parents, and turns towards the two kids.
Leon - "See you later."
Boy - "OK."
Girl - "Let's play some more after you finish lunch, OK?"
The two little kids walk away to the west.
Leon and his parents turn towards each other.
Florice - "What games were you playing, Leon?"
Leon - "Hide-and-seek and tag."
Florice - "That's nice."
Leon - "I'll go home first Mama!"
Leon then runs to the north, towards the castle, and leaves the screen.
Murdoch - "Leon sure seems a lot happier than before."
Florice turns towards Murdoch.
Florice - "He certainly does. He smiles a lot more than he ever did."
Murdoch - [...] - "Seems I was raising him the wrong way."
Florice turns towards the south.
Florice - "Boys his age should be running around outside, playing, getting 
skinned knees, and having fun."
Murdoch turns towards the south as well.

--------------------
Leon and Opera

Leon is standing on the balcony of Opera's home, looking out over the edge. 
Opera enters from the right, and walks up to Leon while talking.  
Opera - "Oh my, what's wrong, Leon."
She stops next to him on the balcony, and Leon turns to face her.
Leon - "I was just thinking."
Opera - "Are you homesick, perhaps?"
Leon starts sweating nervously.
Leon - "That's not it! I was just thinking about our adventures back then."
Opera - "Humph."
Opera moves closer to Leon and she turns to look out over the balcony.
Opera - "Yes, quite a lot happened then."
Leon turns back to look over the balcony as well.
Leon - "I wonder how everyone is doing?"
Opera turns to look at Leon.
Opera - "Leon, don't you want to go back to Expel?"
Leon turns back to face Opera.
Leon - "Why do you ask?"
Opera turns back to look out over the balcony.
Opera - "I sometimes see you sadly staring off to space like that..."
Leon - [...]
Leon - "Certainly, if I were to say that I'm not sad at all, it would be a lie. 
But I'm happy the way things are."
Leon starts sweating nervously.
Leon - "'Cause this way I get to be with Opera."
Opera turns to Leon.
Opera - "Hee-hee ... you're ten years early to be courting me [heart]."
Leon turns to face Opera, still sweating nervously.
Leon - "OK, I'll wait ten years ... naw, five years."
Opera turns back to look over the balcony.
Opera - "Maybe. I'll think about if you wait that long."

--------------------
Leon and Ernest

Ernest and Leon are standing next to each other on a mysterious planet, 
standing at the front of a large opening/door of a building or cave apparently 
built into the face of a mountain.  They are also accompanied by three other 
workers part of an exploration/archaeological team.  Everyone is looking into 
the entrance.

Leon - "Hmm... it looks like the altar is further on in here."
Ernest - "You're right. But it seems odd that there would be ruins of such a 
scale on an outlying planet like this."
Ernest turns toward Leon.
Ernest - "How about it? Should we press on, or go back and report?"
Leon turns to face Ernest.
Leon - "Why do you bother asking me when you know it doesn't matter what I say. 
You'll go on anyway, right?"
Leon walks forward and enters the cavern, with two of the three workers 
following him.  Ernest just stands there with the last worker and watches them 
go.
Ernest - [...]
Ernest - "... right."

--------------------
Leon and Noel

Leon is standing surrounded by furry animals outside a cabin in the woods (the 
same cabin/woods sprites as the Mars Village forest where the children were 
rescued).  He is looking at the animals.
Noel walks in from the eastern entrance.
Noel - "Huh!? What are you doing here?"
Noel walks up to stand near Leon. Leon turns to face Noel.
Leon - "That's what I want to know. I can't believe that I recommended you to 
the top administrator of the Lacour Biological Laboratory, but you blow it off. 
What do you think you're doing?"
Noel - "Ah, sorry about that. I am thankful for your consideration, but I 
would rather be comfortable on my own."
Leon - "Aargh. I even took the trouble to make a supplication to the King."
Leon turns back to face the animals.
Noel - "Ha, ha, ha..."
Noel takes a few steps closer to Leon and turns to face the animals as well.
Noel - "But Leon, what about you? Should you be coming here? Aren't you too 
busy with your work?"
Leon - "If you are asking about that work, it's no problem. I quit already."
Noel turns to face Leon.
Noel - [!]
Noel - "What?"
Leon lowers his head.
Leon - "I figured it out on our last trip. That which I put my heart and soul 
into making eventually became just a tool for hurting people..."
Leon raises his head.
Leon - "That's why I quit."
Leon turns to face Noel.
Leon - "Say, Noel, why don't you let me come and work with you here?"
Noel - "The work is much harder than you might think. Do you mind?"
Leon - "Great! I'd like it."
Noel - "Is that right. Let's work together."

--------------------
Leon and Chisato

Chisato and Leon are sitting on opposite sides of the main table in the Lacour 
Castle laboratory.
Chisato is startled by what Leon is looking at [three yellow marks].
Chisato - "Wait! Isn't that Nedian Heraldry? You'd better not use the 
knowledge you go in Nede!"
Leon - "Why not? It's just a LITTLE... You don't have to make such a big deal 
of it."
Chisato starts getting [steaming] angry.
Chisato - "NO!! Now get rid of it!"
Leon - "Wow... Talk about stingy."
Chisato starts [steaming] even more.
Chisato - "I'm NOT being stingy! We've already gone over this!"
Leon - "I know. You're saying that the military balance of this planet will 
get completely out of whack if we use Nede's knowledge which is far more 
advanced than ours on Expel."
Chisato lowers her head briefly and then raises it to look back at Leon.
Chisato - "If you understand that much, then why do you do it?"
Leon - [...]
Leon - "What does it matter? It's only a LITTLE..."
Chisato - "NO means NO!! It doesn't matter how little it is. NO exceptions."
Leon starts getting frustrated with Chisato [scribbly marks].
Leon - "Ooh... the way this is going nothing will be ready for the next 
academic conference..."


====================
OPERA VECTRA

--------------------
Opera Special - Alone and Waiting for Ernest)

Opera is standing alone on the balcony of her home on Tetragenes, looking out 
over the edge.
Opera - "Ern ... I wonder just where he has gone. I've been waiting so long."
Opera - "Please, Ern ... I just want to hear your voice..."
Opera lowers her head.
Opera - "Come back soon. It is so hard..."

--------------------
Opera alone

Opera is standing alone on the balcony of her home on Tetragenes, looking out 
over the edge. Alfred the Butler walks in from the right and stands near Opera.
Alfred the Butler - "Is something the matter,  young Miss?"
Opera turns towards Alfred.
Opera - "Just a little. I was just thinking about the past."
Alfred - "You mean your adventures when you and your friends saved the 
universe?"
Opera turns back to look out over the balcony edge.
Opera - "That's right. Of course, they wouldn't would believe me if I told 
them?"
Alfred - "Of course they would. I, Alfred, know quite well that you are not 
the type of person to lie."
Opera - "Thank you, Alfred."
Opera - "I wonder how everyone is doing now?"

--------------------
Opera and Ernest - Opera's affection is greater

Opera and Ernest are standing on a pathway on an unknown planet (the 
background looks similar to the path that everyone walked on when they first 
arrived on Energy Nede).  Opera is standing on the left edge of the path, 
looking at some flowers.  Ernest is standing nearby, in the center of the path, 
looking at Opera.
Opera - "This place is beautiful."
Ernest - "Do you like it?"
Opera turns back to face Ernest.
Opera - "Yes. Ernest, you surprised me by suddenly landing on this undeveloped 
planet. I wondered what happened."
Ernest - "Oh, sorry about that."
Ernest turns and begins to walk to the northern exit.  Opera is shocked by 
Ernest's response [three yellow marks].
Opera - "Hang on. Where are you going?"
Ernest stops and turns back to face Ernest.
Ernest - "Huh!? I did a scan of this planet just now, and I saw the image of 
some building-type object just ahead. It may be an unknown ruin."
Opera - [...]
Opera takes a few steps closer to Ernest.
Opera - "Say, can I ask you one thing? Did you land on this planet 
intentionally in order to check that out?"
Ernest - "Of course. Is something wrong?"
Opera turns away from Ernest in frustration [scribbly marks].
Opera - "No big deal. I just thought it was something like that."
Ernest - [?]
Ernest - "What do you mean by that?"
Opera turns back to face Ernest.
Opera - "Nothing."
Opera and Ernest then walk towards the northern exit of the path.

--------------------
Opera and Ernest - Ernest's affection is greater

Opera walks from the balcony of her home to the main room, a large room with a 
desk, tall bookshelves, ornate rug, and table and chairs.
Ernest enters from the front door, and stands opposite Opera.
Ernest - "I'm home."
Opera and Ernest both walk closer to each other.
Opera - "Why so soon? Wasn't this excavation supposed to take a little 
longer?"
Ernest - "I had them hurry up and finish the work early. I didn't want to make 
you wait too long, or you'd come after me again..."
Opera - "Don't be silly, Ernest!"
Opera - "I wouldn't do such a thing. At least you have started saying 'I'm 
home'. to me."
Ernest - "Ah yes ... let me see. I'm home, Opera."
They both walk to each other as the screen fades to black.

--------------------
Opera and Noel

Opera walks from the balcony of her home to the main room, a large room with a 
desk, tall bookshelves, ornate rug, and table and chairs.  Noel enters from 
the front door.
Opera is shocked to see him [three yellow marks].  The two stand opposite each 
other.
Opera - "Welcome home."
Opera begins walking towards Noel.  She stops a few feet in front of him.
Opera - "What's going on, at this hour. Did something happen?"  
Noel - "Well ... it's sorta ... we had a little..."
Opera and Noel both turn towards the front door in surprise [three yellow 
marks] as a little dog runs into the room.  The dog stops near Noel's feet.
Noel starts sweating nervously.  The dog starts running in a circle around 
Noel.
Noel - "Hahaha ... well, um. This is it."
Noel - "I just gave him a little food, and he started following me home..."
Opera gets annoyed [scribbly marks]
Opera - "Hang on now. Just how many of them do you think this makes?"
Noel - "Ha ha ... maybe about ten?"
Opera takes a step closer to Noel.  She's still annoyed, and Noel is still 
sweating.
Opera - "Um, excuse me but this makes seventeen. Seventeen!"
Opera - "Even though my house may be large, we can't take care of any more."
The dog runs up to Opera's feet.  Opera looks down at it.  Clearly, she's 
getting the puppy-dog-eyes routine.
Opera - [...]
Opera turns back to face Noel, who's still sweating.
Opera - "I just can't believe you. This is absolutely the last time."
Opera walks towards the front door.  Noel and the little dog stand and watch 
her.  Noel stops sweating.
Opera - "'Hipper' 'Scheer' 'Bismarck' 'Blucher' 'Emden' 'Gneisenau' 'Spee' 
'Zeppelin'
Opera - "'Karls' 'Koln' 'Konigs' 'Leip' 'Lutzow' 'Nurn' 'Eugen' 'Scharn' 
everyone come!"
16 dogs run from the edges of view and all surround Opera.  Opera looks 
frustrated [scribbly marks] as the screen fades out.

--------------------
Opera and Chisato

Opera is standing on the balcony of her home.  She's wearing a black dress, 
and is looking out over the edge.  
Chisato walks onto the balcony and stands next to Opera.  Opera turns towards 
Chisato as Chisato talks.
Chisato - "What's up? Are you going to another ball?"
Opera - "Yup. Do you want to come along, Chisato?"
Chisato - "You're joking, right? I can't stand such formal stuff..."
Opera - "But there are lots of men who are expecting you to come."
Chisato moves closer to the balcony edge and looks out over the city.
Chisato - "Sorry, but I'll pass. If I had to wear such stiff formal clothes, 
I'm sure I'd suffocate to death."
Opera looks out over the balcony as well.
Opera - "Oh well. Too bad..."
Chisato turns to face Opera.
Chisato - "Say, Opera, I've been meaning to ask you for quite a while. How can 
you wear those clothes? Aren't they painful?"
Opera - "It can't be helped. I am the head of the prestigious Vectra family, 
after all."
Opera turns to face Chisato.
Opera - "I am in no position to be teaching you, but you have to dress the 
part."
Chisato looks back over the balcony edge.
Chisato - "Hmmm. What would everyone say if they knew their lovely Miss Opera 
was running around brandishing such a giant gun."
Opera starts sweating at Chisato's comment.
Opera - "Oh, cut that out. Ever since I left on that journey without 
permission, my parents have been much stricter in their supervision, so..."
Chisato turns back to face Opera.
Chisato - "Ahahahaha. It's OK. I'll keep this off the record."


====================
ERNEST RAVIEDE

--------------------
Ernest alone

Ernest is on a mysterious planet, standing at the front of a large 
opening/door of a building or cave apparently built into the face of a 
mountain.  Ernest is accompanied by four other workers part of an 
exploration/archaeological team.
One of the Workers turns towards Ernest.
Worker - "It seems that the altar is deeper in this direction."
Ernest turns toward the Worker.
Ernest - "You're right. But it seems odd that there would be ruins of such a 
scale on an outlying planet like this."
Worker - "Well then, should we go on or report back?"
Ernest - "Are you serious? How can we NOT go on with it all right in front of 
us?"
Ernest walks forward and stands in entranceway and turns back to the workers.
Ernest - "Quit dawdling, let's GO!!"
Worker - "Yes sir! Right away sir!"
The workers and Ernest turn toward an outcropping/rock that looks like a 
control panel.
Ernest - "WOAH there! Don't touch that different-colored rock. It's probably a 
trap."
Ernest enters the building.  The other workers follow behind him.

--------------------
Ernest and Noel

A green spaceship is docked at a space port of some kind.  A green glow 
permeates the place from the windows lower down.  An exit hatch is open, and a 
docking bridge is already connected.  
Ernest and Noel walk through the ship's exit out onto the bridge.  Noel is 
slightly behind Ernest.  They stop just as Ernest is about to step onto the 
bridge from the hatch of the ship.
Noel - "Wow. No matter how many times I come here, it is still an incredible 
place."
Ernest turns to face Noel.
Ernest - "Do you think so? To me, the ancient ruins lying upon the lands of 
countless worlds are many times more interesting."
Noel turns to face Ernest.  Noel's a little annoyed by Ernest's comment 
[scribbly marks].
Noel - "Hmmm. That certainly may be so."
Ernest turns back to look over the bridge.
Ernest - "A mechanized civilization that rejects the existence of all life 
forms other than themselves. This is the conclusion that we, as people on the 
outside, have come to."
Noel and Ernest begin walking across the bridge.  Noel talks as they are 
walking.
Noel - "You were invited to this conference, Ernest, because your research has 
gained recognition, right?"
Noel - "So then, why are you in such a bad mood."
Ernest stops near where the bridge joins the main part of the station.  Noel 
stops near Ernest.  Without turning around, Ernest speaks.
Ernest - "It's because the idiots at the conference don't do anything but jack 
their jaws in front of their desks."
Ernest turns to face Noel.
Ernest - "Gaining the recognition of those idiots doesn't do anything for me."
Ernest - "I really didn't want to come to this place."
Ernest turns and walks off.  Noel stares at his back in frustration [scribbly 
marks].

--------------------
Ernest and Chisato

Ernest and Chisato are standing next to each other on a mysterious planet, 
standing at the southern entrance of the screen.  In front of them looms a 
large opening/door of a building or cave apparently built into the face of a 
mountain.  They are also accompanied by three other workers part of an 
exploration/archaeological team.  Everyone is looking into the entrance.
Chisato turns to Ernest.
Chisato - "It looks as if the altar is further on this way."
Ernest turns to Chisato.
Ernest - "You're right. But it seems odd that there would be ruins of such a 
scale on an outlying planet like this."
Chisato turns and runs towards the entrance of the ruins.  As she nears the 
entrance, she stops and turns around to face Ernest and the workers.
Chisato - "Last one there is a rotten egg!!"
Ernest - "What are you doing?! Look out!!"
Chisato - "Scaredy-cat!! I'm OK, all right?"
Suddenly, a laser beam shoots out from the entrance.  Chisato leaps to the 
right, barely dodging it.  Ernest and the workers all stare in shock - [!]
Chisato - "WOAH!! Oops oops oops...!"
Chisato looks around in a daze.
Ernest - "Chisato!!"
Ernest and a worker walk up to Chisato.
Chisato - "Whew! THAT was a surprise. I thought that was IT!!"
Ernest - "It's not as if I didn't WARN you! Now be CAREFUL, all right?!"
Chisato - "Er... sorry. I'll be CAREFUL, OK? Don't get so ANGRY... ok?"
The two workers who didn't run up with Ernest turn to each other.
Worker A - "Didn't the same thing happen on the last dig?"
Worker B - "Yep. Same old thing. Just wouldn't be the same without her, 
though."
Worker A - "I can't understand why she's still alive..."
Worker B - "Yeah... 'being lucky' doesn't seem to be a good enough 
explanation."
Ernest, the third worker, and Chisato turn to the paid of workers who were 
talking to each other.
Ernest - "Hey you two, get over here, pronto!!"
Worker A and B are jolted to attention [three yellow marks].
The two turn towards Ernest.
Worker A/B - "Yes sir!! Right away, sir!!"
The two workers walk towards Ernest and the others, as the screen fades to 
black.


====================
NOEL CHANDLER

--------------------
Noel alone

Noel is standing surrounded by furry animals outside a cabin in the woods (the 
same cabin/woods sprites as the Mars Village forest where the children were 
rescued).  He is looking at the animals.
Noel - "So much has happened since that trip ended."
Noel continues - "How nostalgic.  I wonder how everyone is doing?"
Dog - "Wrorf, wooof."
Noel - "Are you are trying to cheer me up?  Thanks."

--------------------
Noel and Chisato

Noel and Chisato are standing side-by-side surrounded by furry animals outside 
a cabin in the woods (the same cabin/woods sprites as the Mars Village forest 
where the children were rescued).  Both are looking at the animals.
Noel - "Somehow we survived."
Chisato - "Yes.  Just us two..."
Noel - "It looks like only three Nedians have survived, including Rena."
Chisato - "That's right... our new life is not bad, but every now and then I 
yearn for our life on Nede."
Noel's head dips down.
Noel - "Since it came down to this, maybe I should have died together with 
everyone."
Chisato turns towards Noel.
Chisato - "What are you saying?  Didn't you promise Mayor Narl?  Have you 
forgotten your promise to live on for all those who couldn't?"
Noel raises his head and turns to face Chisato.
Noel - "I remember.  There isn't any way that I could have forgotten."
Chisato - "Then why do you say such a cowardly thing?"
Chisato turns away from Noel towards the animals.
Chisato - "We should just lock up the past in our memories.  We can take them 
out every now and then.  That is enough."
Chisato continues - "But rather than that, we should be looking forward."
Noel turns towards the animals as well.
Noel - "You're right.  Thank you, Chisato.  I feel a little better already."
Chisato turns towards Noel.
Chisato - "Great, that's the spirit.  As some of the few remaining Nedians, we 
should live proudly!"


====================
CHISATO MADISON

--------------------
Chisato alone

Chisato is walking off a boat in the port town of Herlie.
Chisato - "Ugh...  BORING."
She walks towards the wharf side facing towards a house boat.
Chiasto - "I wonder if everyone is doing OK?"
Chisato shakes her head.
Chiasto - "No, no.  There is no use in pining about the past."
Chisato continues - "I have to think about what to do from now on."



====================
REUNION ENDING - SPECIAL

--------------------
"Extra Special Ending" - Ending 86 - Occurs after the credits and individual 
endings, if the relationship values amongst all the characters are high enough.

Claude is pacing at the bridge leaving Arlia to Shingo forest.  Claude 
continues pacing while talking to himself.
Claude - "Where is everyone? They're late."
Claude stops and turns northward towards Arlia village.
Claude - "They couldn't have gotten the date wrong, could they?"
Claude returns to pacing the same path as before, talking to himself while 
doing so.
Claude - "I think today is the day. It's gotta be today..."
Claude stops and turns northwards towards Arlia village again.
Claude is suddenly alerted to something in the distance [three yellow marks].
Rena appears from the entrance to Arlia village and walks up to Claude.
When she is near Claude, she stops, and the rest of the party separates out 
from her and forms a crowd near the bridge.
Claude - "Everyone's late. They're like completely tardy."
Rena - "Sorry, Claude. I just ran into everyone and when we started talking, I 
lost track of the time..."
Claude becomes annoyed [scribbly marks]
Claude - "Hey! Are you trying to leave me out? That's terrible."
Rena - "But ... just think about it. It's been such a long time since we all 
have gotten together."
Claude - "You're right. I'm just glad that everyone is doing well."
Rena - "Let's hurry over to my house. I'm sure everyone has lots to talk 
about."
All of the characters then "merge" into the main character (Rena or Claude) 
and the main character walks towards Arlia village, as the camera pans upwards 
and fades out.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Send me a question if you want.  It's version 1.0, so of course, there are 
really no questions yet from readers.  If you have any, e-mail me.  
nightshade_x2000@yahoo.com

I told someone I was making this guide, and besides saying I was crazy, I was 
asked this question:

1.   Were there any interesting endings?

Very subjective, it depends on what you are looking for.  There are 86 endings 
scripted here, so my memory's vague.  For the most part, the endings feel like 
"slice of life" moments, and only a few of them actually give you a feeling 
about what the relationship is between the two characters, as opposed to just 
killing time.  Here are some to check out:

a.   Bowman alone - If you were wondering whatever became of that book given 
to Keith, here's the answer.

b.   Dias and Chisato - Apparently, from what I've read, this ending was 
popular and became the "cannon" ending for those two, and is incorporated into 
Star Ocean: Blue Sphere.

c.   Precis and Ashton - Their ending was longer than most.  And I like these 
characters, what can I say.  These two are the leads of Star Ocean: Blue 
Sphere.

d.   Celine and Ernest - I couldn't believe there were two endings for these 
two, and the one where Ernest's affection is greater was pretty surprising to 
me when I saw it.  I didn't think they had it in them.  I guess they are both 
treasure hunters.

e.   Claude and Rena - Three endings is weird enough, but the one where both 
are on Earth was a pain to get.  After so many vague endings, it was a little 
surprising to see Rena mention she was pregnant.

f.   Chisato endings - In a lot of her endings, she does or says some unusual 
or "wacky" things.  For instance, the Ernest and Chisato ending.  After seeing 
that scenario repeated so often (Ernest alone, Leon and Ernest, Celine and 
Ernest, etc.) hers felt different, in a good way.  And in some endings, she 
actually brings up that she is a reporter.

g.   Bowman and Ernest - Interesting, if only to see Opera's sister, Opal, who 
is never otherwise mentioned, as far as I can remember.

h.   Opera and Noel - All I can say is, those are some WEIRD dog names.  
Bismarck?  Zeppelin??  Leip?  Nurn?  What the heck's a Nurn?

i.   Rena alone - The dialogue feels really messed up here.  That's the only 
reason it's memorable.

j.   Reunion Ending - This ending was the most frustrating, because it felt 
like just a rumor.  No one could confirm they actually saw it.  So it was very 
rewarding to actually see it myself, even if the ending doesn't add a whole 
lot.

But, what also stuck out to me after viewing them all was the "sameness" of 
some of the endings.  Look at Claude and Ashton, Ashton and Chisato, and 
Ashton and Leon, for example.  There are others too.  I even cut-and-pasted 
some of my descriptions, and dialogues, in those endings, because they really 
were the same.

THANKS

Thanks to Feral (FeralNoa@aol.com) for his ending compendium guide, without 
which, this guide would have been an even greater exercise in frustration.  
Although it's even more frustrating to know there's one ending left, with zero 
clue as to how to get it!  

Thanks to Tri-Ace for making this, and all the other games they've made.  
Always great stuff.  Looking forward to Radiata Stories.  If only Star Ocean: 
Blue Sphere made it here, but it's too late now.

Thanks to Sony for publishing Star Ocean - The Second Story, especially 
considering Star Ocean 1 never (legitimately) made it over here.  No thanks to 
Sony for their somewhat sloppy translation.  Oh well.  Pobody's Nerfect.

Thanks to Geneon/Pioneer for releasing, and dubbing, Star Ocean EX, in North 
America.  I quite enjoy the dub Ocean did for it.  Check it out, if you 
haven't already.  Now if only someone would license the comics too...  For SO2 
and Blue Sphere...
