Now the flashback finishes and just as Kyle is about to fall prey to the bears a rescuer arrives identifying himself as Loni Dunamis, Kyle's brother-like figure who left to become a templar solider a while ago. After fending off the bears, Kyle collapses due to fatigue. Kyle wakes up on Loni's back as they arrive in クレスタ Loni explains to Kyle that it's nice to be back and after a small wondering around they head off to the Dunamis orphanage where they both grew up. Dunamis orphanage is now maintained by Rutee, Kyle's mother and one of the four heroes that saved the world 18 years ago. After arriving at the orphanage, Loni tells Kyle that it's still crappy as usual and he's got an idea for coming up with the $$ needed for a refurnish. Just happens that there's been a rumor floating around about a massive Lens being located in ラグナ遺跡 which is easily worth more than 3 Million gold. Kyle becomes extremely excited at the idea and begs to tag along for the Lens search, Loni hesitates but succumbs to Kyle's constant begging. Loni finally agrees to bring Kyle along but only with Rutee's permission. After a happy reunion with Rutee, they sit down and Rutee asks Loni how are things in Cult. Loni tells Rutee that he thinks the Cult is acting really strange lately, especially after a woman called エルレイン showed up, people with Lens are getting priorities in medication and praying which isn't right when everyone should be treated equal. Kyle then asks Rutee if he can go out on a adventure with Loni and Rutee blatantly says no due to the fact that she thinks Kyle is still too young for this sort of stuff. Kyle then complains how Rutee herself was already a Lens Hunter at his age. Rutee says that Kyle will only be a burden to Loni but Kyle rejects by saying he has his father's blood in him and he won't be a burden. Rutee thinks otherwise and tells him that why she's worried because he has Stahn's blood in him. Anyway Rutee ends the conversation and sends Kyle off to sleep. Kyle is determined to go either with or without Rutee's consent, since he believes it's his job to look after the orphanage till Stahn comes back. In Kyles dream that night, he saw Stahn and Rutee being attacked by a mysterious figure and he wakes up just as Stahn is about to be slashed... After usual morning call from Rutee, Kyle meets Loni downstairs and Loni decides to take Kyle with him but he would withdraw immediately if he thinks it's too much to handle. So off they go to ラグナ遺跡 without Rutee's consent. ------------ |ラグナ遺跡| ------------ As they arrive at the ruins, so does the scout team from Atamoni Cult (the cult Loni works for). Kyle and Loni hides while the scout decides to check out the forward entrance, since they don't want to be caught they decide to take the back door entrance. After getting to the most inner part of the ruin, they come to face a massive Lens which explodes into shards and a girl emerges from it. While the duo are still in a state of shock, the girl talks to herself saying that her job is to find a hero, a hero that has the power to change history. Kyle over hears the mumblings and rushes up to the girl telling her that her search is already over since he'll become a great hero one day. The girl stares at Kyle for a brief moment then wonders off saying that Kyle isn't the hero she's looking for. Just as Kyle and Loni is about to go after the girl in comes the Cult scout team, they both end up being accused of thieves responsible for the disappearance of the big Lens. When Loni said he has had enough with the Cult and wanted to break through by force he and Kyle gets knocked unconscious and taken to ダリルシェイド where further interrogations await them. ---------------- |ダリルシェイド| ---------------- Loni screams at the door for a while and Kyle slowly gets up and gets unusually excited, Loni thought Kyle's head must've been whacked pretty hard but it turns out that he's excited about this "adventure" and decides to start adventuring for real after they return to クレスタ. Kyle names his adventure as "the adventure needed to become a hero", he wants to find that mysterious girl and let her understand that he has what it takes to become the hero she's looking for. Loni thinks it's pretty cool idea and decides to tag along, saying that after this incident he knows that the Cult isn't the place where he belongs and along side Kyle is where he should be. Loni then says he always thought he could be a replacement as a fatherhood figure for Kyle after that day.... A laughter comes from the top and a slim figure wearing a mask jumps down from the top and scoffs at Kyle's idea of becoming a hero. Kyle then asks why can't he become one and the masked person says hero is a label given by people for one's deeds and not something you can try and grasp, the more you try to become one, the further away you're actually from the path of being one. Loni comments that this masked person is talking as if he's a hero himself (sarcasm). Masked person says that he isn't a hero himself but he knows at least 4 people who are eligible to be called one. Loni then laughs and tells him that not only do they know them, they're actually Kyle's parents. The masked person then realizes who he's actually talking to, Kyle then starts complaining how they have to find a way out of this place before that girl wonders off too far. The masked person says he has a good idea to get them out of this place, Loni quickly tells Kyle that he shouldn't trust someone who hides their true identity under a mask. Kyle says there isn't time to worry about such things and asks the masked person if he has a name. Masked person replies saying that names are meaningless to him and Kyle gives him the name "Judas" (wonder where he got that idea from). Judas then proceeds to knocking down the front door with his sword and leads everyone out. The way out is guarded and just as Kyle and Loni is running out of ideas Judas gives Kyle a sorcerer ring(S.Ring) and explains that even though this place was rebuilt into a monastry after Oberon company collapsed, secret passage that the president Hugo once used still remains. Kyle asks why Judas knows about all those things, and Judas says there is no point in further discussion and then tells him to move on. As they reached the exit of underground sewer, Judas complains how he could've escaped a lot faster if he was by himself. Loni tells Kyle to leave this place and away from this weirdo, Kyle says Judas is a nice person cos he lead them out of the prison even though he could've escaped alone. Judas surprised by Kyle's remarks almost asked if he could join them on their journey but in the end he still left wishing Kyle "luck" in trying to become a hero. ------------------- |クレスタ (Cresta)| ------------------- After they arrive at the orphanage, they see the lights are still up indicating that Rutee hasn't slept yet. Loni said he'll volunteer to talk to Rutee about Kyle's journey if he finds it too hard to talk to her about it. Kyle declines his offer and says that he must tell her himself, he approaches Rutee who slaps Kyle for returning so late and tells him that he's too early for any sort of journey. Kyle retaliates by saying that he wants to become a hero like his dad and gets slapped again. Rutee then runs out, Loni asks Kyle if he's ok and Kyle replies by saying that he'll try again tomorrow. Loni says don't worry, since if Kyle's serious about it then he's sure that Rutee will understand. Rutee now sits outside the oprhanage and starts talking to herself about she slapped Kyle and he's too much like his father and should be more like her. Next morning Kyle goes downstair and sees Rutee all cheerful and happy, just as he wonders what's up Rutee tells him to sit down and have breakfast. Kyle tries to tell her about his decision but she changes the topic constantly, finally Kyle lost his patience and just when he's about to yell out to Rutee, she tells Kyle that he's going on a journey with Loni right? Kyle shocked by the fact that he hasn't said a word yet, but Rutee said she's been his mother for 15 years so she knows what he's thinking, and brings out some items that Stahn used to use along with some cash. Rutee then tells Kyle that she doesn't know what to in this kind of situation so she just wishes Kyle luck and don't give up easily when he encounters difficulties in the future. Loni comes in and Rutee tells him to take care of Kyle and off they go on their new journey. ******************************************** *Chapter2 -- The journey of becoming a hero* ******************************************** -------------------- |ハーメンツヴァレー| -------------------- Kyle tells Loni that the first thing they have to do is to find that girl, however he has no clue or what so ever. Loni tells him to use his brain and states that since she said she's looking for heroes, there are only four people right now she could be on her way to. No one knows the whereabouts of Stahn and she didn't come to see Rutee so that only leaves Firia and Woodrow and meeting either requires her to travel through the town アイグレッテ. So with their first destination decided they now need to pass ハーメンツヴァレー in order to get to アイグレッテ. Upon arriving at ハーメンツヴァレー only to find the bridge connecting the cliff broken. A merchant tells them that they came at a bad time, Kyle gets worried and talks to himself that if he doesn't hurry up he'll lose track of the girl. The merchant overhears this and asks him if it's a girl in pink dress and Kyle becomes excited and asks where she went, the merchant points down the cliff so off they go. Along the way they find a pendant on the ground, Kyle immediately recognizes it and smiles at he picks it up. Loni tells him not smile like a pervert. Not far ahead they find the girl desparately seeking for something with a weeping face. It took them a couple of hails to get her attention but she says she doesn't have time to deal with them right now. Loni says that a pretty cold remark for to say to people who helped her find her lost property. Kyle gives back her pendant, the girl seems a bit embarassed and says thanks but please don't get involved with her anymore and then runs off. Loni says that felt pretty bad and wonders if she's really worth going after. Kyle says he won't give up until she recognizes him as a hero. -------------- |アイグレッテ| -------------- After passing through ハーメンツヴァレー and finally arriving at アイグレッテ, Kyle is astounded by the size of the city. As they enter the local inn, innkeeper greets them and starts rambling on about staying, just as Kyle is about to explain that they're here to collect info, a person comes rushing in and tells everyone that エルレイン (Ellane) is here and then everyone rushes out to see her leaving only Kyle and Loni in the inn. Kyle wonders who Ellane is and Loni gives a brief explanation saying that she's the head of Atamoni cult who just appeared one day and impressed everyone with her "miracles" thus gained a bunch followers. However Loni says he doesn't like her since the cult became strange ever since she appeared. Kyle seemed to have taken in the word "miracle" and tells Loni go to outside so he can shake her hand or get her signature. Loni tells himself that he's dumb for talking to Kyle seriously. Outside they see Ellane being surrounded by townspeople and starts performing miracles. People are amused as their sickness goes away all of a sudden (blind people being able to see again), Kyle is among the amused people but Loni points out that the pendant Ellane's wearing looks familiar. Kyle recognizes it as exactly the same as the girl's pendant and rushes out yelling at Ellane to give it back. Loni quickly steps out explaining to Ellane that they're sorry for being rude but Kyle's just a little impatient cos the pendent Ellane's wearing is remarkably similar to that girl's. Ellane becomes interested and says she thinks she understand the situation and explains that this pendent is indeed her own and everybody here can prove it. Kyle apologizes for being so abrupt and after asking both their names, Ellane leaves hoping they'll meet again sometime. The crowd dissolves and everyone goes back doing their own thing, upon returning to the inn after a brief chat with the innkeeper reveals that he saw the girl they're after heading for ストレイライズ大神殿. Kyle rushes out with Loni chasing after him but the way to ストレイライズ大神殿 is blocked by guards who won't let them through since today isn't a day for praying. Kyle asks Loni if there's an alternative way into ストレイライズ大神殿 and Loni remembers a rumor that his captain told him a while ago about an old ruin that's linked with ストレイライズ大神殿 near here. ---------------------- |ストレイライズ大神殿| ---------------------- After passing through ストレイライズ遺跡, Kyle and Loni find themselves at ストレイ ライズ大神殿. As they proceed towards the church's door, they overhear the girl's conversation with Firia (one of the 4 heroes from TOD). The girl asks Firia how she can find the hero she's looking, but Firia then asks her why she's looking for a hero. The girl says she needs power, power that's strong enough to change the fate of a world. A defintion of hero, from the girl's point of view is someone that not only can affect people around him but also has the power to alter the future/fate of the world. She needs to know the source of powers like that and if possible weild it herself. Firia says she already sense great power from the girl but the girl objects by saying that it's not enough at all. Firia then proceeds to ask the girl what she'll do when she finds the hero and has the power she's seeking in her hands. The girl doesn't know what to say, Firia then says she must be the hero she's looking for. After apologizing, the girl tells Firia that she gurantees she's not seeking to abuse the power. Firia says she understands but was just curious what would a girl with such power would want. Just as the their conversation is about to continue, a black hole appears wrapping in a blue haired warrior. He approaches Firia, asking whether she was one of the 4 heroes that destroyed the God's Eye. Firia demands to know who he is but he thinks his name isn't important to someone who's about to die. Firia tells the girl to run and a second later Firia is down on the floor with the blue haired warrior commenting how disappointed he was with someone who was once called a hero. Kyle and Loni charges in just in time before he was about to land the finishing blow on Firia. After a furious battle just as Kyle thought he had defeated the blue-haired warrior, a strong pulse knocked his sword out of his hand. Suddenly a sword flies over from distance and seriously injures the warriour, it turns out to be Judas who also throws Kyle's sword back to him. Kyle lands the decisive blow and the warrior retreats telling them his name is "Barbatos" and he's looking forward to their next meeting. After some emergency healing from the girl, Firia's life is no longer in danger. The girl still feels awfully sorry and powerless that she couldn't have done more to help the situation. Kyle then says it's not good to regret since it just makes you stranded to the past. Firia recovers consciousness and agrees with Kyle saying that she was once under depression a for a long time when she found out that she was actually helping the arch-bishop doing evil deeds with "God's Eye". It was Stahn who told her that regret can't produce anything and brought her back from depression. Firia says it was because of Stahn so she could be who she is today and sadly she does not know the magic to find a hero but she does not what the girl needs. Comrades is what the girl needs like Rutee, Woodrow and Stahn was like to Firia. Firia says those comrades made her realised powers she didn't believe she had and gave her the motivation to move on. Kyle suddenly jumps out and holds the girl's hand saying that he'll become her comrade and they'll be together forever. The girl agrees after identifies herself as "Reala", just as they are celebrating, Judas slowly sneaks away. Kyle senses this and goes after him with Loni behind. Firia tells Reala that she must believe in herself since she did save Firia and she does indeed have the power to save people. Just as Judas is about to sneak away, Kyle catches up with him and requests that he joins them. Judas declines but then 2 guards comes up searching for suspicious people that have infiltrated the temple. Judas stands out the most due to his mask and Kyle tells the guards that Judas isn't the person they're looking for since he's their "comrade". They mislead the guard off elsewhere and sorta forced Judas to join them since he didn't say anything when Kyle told the guards that Judas was with them. In order to visit "Hero King" Woodrow, they'll have to take a ride from アイグレッテ port. -------------------- | アルジャーノン号 | -------------------- Inside the ship Loni suggests that they split up so everyone can have some free time. Loni goes off trying his chances with the females aboard, saying Kyle should make a move on Reala on his way out which gets Kyle all worried denying any weird thoughts. Judas leaves too telling Kyle that he wants to be alone to think about some things and not to follow him. Kyle finds Reala on a platform near the mast, unlike previous times Reala is really cheerful and they have a good chat. Kyle is surprised by Reala's cheerfulness and thought she was a cold person based on their previous encounters. Reala apologizes saying that her thoughts were filled completely with hero seeking that she didn't have time for anything else. Reala then asks why Kyle wants to become a hero, Kyle then says he wants to become like his father who was strong and kind at the same time. Kyle then asks Reala why she's looking for a hero, Reala seems a bit reluctant to reveal her motive and just says she has her own reasons. A big ramble then shook the entire ship, the team gather back together to investigate what happened. According sailors aboard, the monster that attacked the ship is called "King of the Devil Reef", Kyle and co went to the deck and managed to fend off it's tentacles but then another sailor panicked and told them it's now attacking the hull of the ship. After defeating the boss at the storage room, the ship's now sinking because of the damage. Kyle and Loni tells everyone to go to the main deck and they'll come up with something, Judas tells Reala to use her powers but Reala thinks she doesn't have enough to do anything. Once everyone's gathered on the deck, Kyle thinks hard for a way to save everyone but alas there's nothing he could do. Judas says the only way out of this situation is for Reala to use her powers, Reala starts praying even though she still lacks confidence about her abilities. A white aura suddenly surrounds the ship and lifts it above the water, Reala reliefed at the result faints due to fatigue. While Reala's resting, Kyle and everyone else goes to speak with the captain who starts flattering the party about being Saint and Heroes. kyle becomes a bit impressed with himself but was soon scorned by Judas who says they don't have time for this and needs to find a way to Snowfiria. Captain suggests that he'll drop them off near リーネ village and after Reala recovers they can travel to ノイシュタット where the captain will be waiting after he returns to アイグレッテ port and finishes fixing the ship. ****************************************** * Chapter 3 -- Across the misty continent* ****************************************** ---------- | リーネ | ---------- After explaining their situation to Lilith (Stahn's sister for those unfamiliar with the previous TOD), she says that they're more than welcome to rest here for the time being. Kyle asks Lilith a few things about Stahn and he was surprised that his father was rather normal like everyone else when he grew up. After talking to the villagers they sleep at Lilith's house, during the night Loni asks Kyle whether he was disappointed about his father's image. Kyle thinks exactly the opposite, saying that he's actually quite pleased to find he and his father so much alike. Loni says Stahn is like "life" to him and he often says the most important thing is to trust someone no matter what happens and everything will be fine in the end. In the morning Lilith wakes up Kyle with the old frypan method she used to use on Stahn everyday. A brief talk with Loni reveals Reala is outside. Kyle finds Reala and she apologizes for keeping everyone worried, Kyle commends Reala for her miracle but Reala still seems to lack confidence with her own abilities and wonder if she can pull it off next time. Kyle tells her not to worry and they head back to regroup with Loni and Judas. After breakfast they decide to depart and head for ノイシュタット after saying farewell to Lilith who welcomes them to come back anytime. -------------- | 白雲の尾根 | -------------- After departing リーネ and heading slightly South, the surrounding suddenly becomes foggy. Loni explains how this region was hit by Velkurnt 18 years and thus transformed the geoscape to what it is today. After going through mines interconnecting each other, Kyle and co comes across a small wooden cottage where they think it'll be a good place to rest. Judas volunteers to stay awake and keep an eye out for things while the rest sleep. Judas then talks to his sword, Chaltier(his swordian) and comments on the simliarities between Kyle and Stahn and it must be fate that brought them together. Loni wakes up and asks Judas what he was talking about Kyle, Judas tells him harshly that it's nothing and he should go back to sleep. Loni stays silent for a moment then tells Judas that while he doesn't know his true motive for travelling with them he better not trying anything funny on Kyle or else... Judas scoffs at Loni's threats and says if he keeps on acting like Kyle's guardian then Kyle will never grow up and mature. Loni now pretty pissed off yells that he cares about Kyle more than anyone else, Reala awoke by the argument between the two asks Loni what's wrong. Loni says it's nothing but Reala says he's lying since she saw his tensed face when she woke up, Loni then shouts at Reala saying it's NOTHING which kinda scared/surprised her. Loni realizing that he's not being himself apologizes for his harshness, everyone falls silent for a moment then they hear Kyle mumble everyone's name during his sleep and how they'll be together forever. Loni tells Judas it's time for him to take a rest and he'll be the lookout from now on. In the morning Kyle seems all pumped up and ready to travel, everyone else gives "..." since obviously Kyle didn't know what went on last night. ------------------ | ノイシュタット | ------------------ Upon entering the harbour, Kyle sees a sailor surrounded by a few people who doesn't seem happy at all. They go up to see what the fuss is all about and it turns out the ship hasn't been fixed yet with no estimated time of completion. Just when they're thinking of what they should do during this time a business man approaches them for a favor cos they look mean and tough (ok maybe not mean). Kyle gets above himself again and reckons he must be glowing with some form of heroish aura. They proceed to the business man's apartment and it turns out he wants them to retrieve some form of treasure that was believed to be in Oberon company's vault years ago but somehow is now located in the Oberon ruins. Judas starts getting suspicious and questions the business man where he got this info from and this info wasn't recorded anywhere except on "her" will. The business man starts getting nervous and states that he doesn't know anything about Ilene's will which leads to further questioning from Judas since he only mentioned "her" and nothing about "Ilene". The sly business man just about had it and was about to call off the deal when Kyle agreed to retrieve the treasure without further questions. ------------------ | オベロン社廃坑 | ------------------ After activating the Lens engine and coming to a hidden cave, the party finds a box which contains some form of mineral. Judas explains the box contains a special type of rock which was used to build Velkrunt (Dycroft's cannon), it acted as an lens amplifier. With the discovery of this material in theory it's possible to build another Velkrunt, however it's impossible now since no one knows how to manipulate the material. Oberon was analyzing the possiblites of the material before the company ceased to exist. Further inside lies a beautiful garden like location which surprises everyone. Reala says that flowers and grass must've flourished because of the sunlight that came through cracks from the roof. Judas notices a tomb like stone slab with some writings on it, after reading it he starts laughing alone saying how sarcastic those writings are. Everyone comes up and Loni reads out out the writings slowly. Those words were engraved by Ilene and stated she came across those rocks by accident and it's a product of light and chemical effect. She sincerely hoped that those rocks can be used to harness the living quality of those living in ノイシュタット and create a society where poverty doesn't exist. Judas says Ilene took the wrong route and decided to take shortcuts in order for results to happen fast and that lead her to her demise. Reala believes that Ilene's intentions were good but just carried out in the wrong way and the engravings on the slab pleads anyone who reads it to protect this secret garden from being ruined. Loni thinks they were nearly as bad as the ones that only thought of using the rocks for military purposes since they only saw the rock's potential as a weapon of great destruction. ------------------ | ノイシュタット | ------------------ Upon returning to the business man's building they overhear a conversation between the sly business man and his friend saying how he found the will in the vault when he bought the Oberon building and those adventurers are really stupid for just going out like that. Even if they die somewhere it won't cost him a cent. Kyle and co steps in and the business man asks if they have brought back the treasure and hope they weren't hurt in the process. Loni says what a fake that guy is as Kyle hands over the rock they found, the business man looks confused as it looks like a piece of junk and asks what is it. Kyle replies he doesn't know and that's the thing that looked most likely to be a "treasure", the business doesn't seems very happy but some "kind" words from Judas made him pay up without hesistation. Pleased with the "screwed" look on the business man's face, the party makes way towards the port and with the ship ready they go on board for a ride towards スノーフリア. -------------------- | アルジャーノン号 | -------------------- Kyle is alone by himself again, as he wonders around the ship he overhears Judas and Loni talking. Judas seems to think Loni is suspicious of him but Loni says he's just interested in how old he is since he knows about Stahn and Ilene and somehow Judas always accuse him of being suspicious. Kyle steps in and says since Judas doesn't want answer the question then the conversation is over, but Judas thinks otherwise as another person wants to know his true identity as well. Reala steps out from nowhere and says she's interested in who Judas really is as well, Judas says she must be concerned with why Judas knows stuff about her. Judas then say if she can tell everyone else who she really is then he'll tell everyone who is too. Reala hesistates and can't bring herself to do it, Judas says since they can't bear to travel with someone without knowing their true identity his journey with them is over and he'll leave as soon as the boat docks in. Judas slips away and Kyle proceeds to search for him. Upon finding Judas Kyle says he trusts him no matter how old or who Judas really is. Judas surprised by Kyle's remark asks him why does he trust him even though he's hiding everything from them. Kyle says it has nothing to do with secrets and he likes Judas including his secrets too and wants to be with him (sounds gay I know -_-). Before Judas can reply Kyle says he's said all he wanted to say and leaves. Loni and Reala comments on how they can see スノーフリア and Reala feels kinda sad that this trip is coming to an end. Kyle tells her not to worry as she can take the boat again when they return, Judas suddendly runs up and tells everyone to prepare themselves as if nothing has happened. Loni apologizes to Judas again, Judas apologizes too saying that he shouldn't have argued with a "child" whose mental age is lower than his. Loni gets semi-pissed again while Kyle and Reala laughs as they all get off the ship in peace. ***************************************** * Chapter 4 -- Woodrow, the Heroic King * ***************************************** ---------------- | スノーフリア | ---------------- Kyle comments on how cold this place, Loni says they better go to ハイデルベルク before he freezes to death. ------------------ | ハイデルベルク | ------------------ As Kyle and co walks into the palace, they're stopped by 2 guards telling them that meeting with King Woodrow without an appointment in advance will have to be a couple of weeks later. Kyle can't believe this and says they can't wait this long, but the guards won't negotiate. Loni goes up to the guards and whispers if they can just pass on this message to the king saying that Stahn's son would like to meet him. One of the guards sort of realises who their visitors are and agrees to pass on the message. Kyle asks Loni what he did and Loni says it's a small thing not worth mentioning. Judas isn't impressed by Loni's method and goes off to kill time saying that Kyle can meet Woodrow without him. Just as Kyle is about to stop Judas from running away the guard returns and tells them that an audience with the king Woodrow has been granted. Just they enter the throne room, they notice someone is already inside so they have to wait. The scene switches and inside the throne room we see Elrane speaking with Woodrow. It seems that Elrane hopes that Woodrow can provide the large amoount of Lens ハイデルベルク current is keeping in its vault so she can use it and improve the living quality of people living in スノーフリア. Woodrow says while he doesn't want to become suspcious of Elrane's intention, previous incident with the Arch-Bishop 18 years ago demands him to be more cautious so history won't repeat itself. Elrane concludes by saying that it seems time and effort will be needed to presuade the king and she'll end the discussion here today. Upon leaving the throne room, Elrane meets Kyle and co waiting in line. Elrane says it's nice to meet them again and somehow Reala's pendent starts glowing brightly as if it's reacting with Elrane. Elrane somehow surprised by this, walks off without further comments. Reala seems to know who Elrane but she's keeping the information to herself right now. As they enter the throne room, king Woodrow greets them and says they shouldn't have cut in line. Kyle becomes really embarassed and doesn't know what to say but Loni says that it was his idea so please don't be harsh on Kyle. Woodrow laughs and says as long as they know what they've done is wrong that it's ok, he wasn't thinking about punishing them at the start. Woodrow tells Kyle since he's the son of Stahn, he's also like a son to him so from now on he won't have to reserve an audience to meet Woodrow. Woodrow asks Kyle his purpose for coming all the way from クレスタ to meet him, Reala walks up to Woodrow and sort of analyzes him but shakes her head in disappointment. Woodrow asks Kyle what was that all about, Kyle explains Reala's quest to him and somehow Woodrow doesn't fit the criteria as well. Woodrow gives Reala an advice, that is never give up and everything will turn out well in the end, it's a phrase that Stahn often used. Loni then asks Woodrow about Elrane saying that she must've came to ask for Lens. Woodrow shows them what he has collected in his vault and they were amused by the amount collected across the continent. Woodrow says since the incident 18 years ago he wanted to prevent people from being too reliant on Lens that's why he has all those Lens collected and kept in control. After they come from the throne room they meet up with Judas, Kyle excitely goes on about what a great person Woodrow is, especially because he said Kyle seemed to have inherited hero's talent from his parents. Judas then says by the look on Reala's face Woodrow wasn't the person she's looking for and she has no clue on who to visit next. Judas then scolds Kyle being carried away with himself and says that no one in this castle including Woodrow is taking Kyle seriously since they all just look at Kyle as "Stahn's son" rather than Kyle himself and a person who gets carried away with himself while his comrades are troubled (Reala) definately can't become a hero. Kyle deeply hurt by Judas's comments, runs out. Loni gets exteremely mad and tells Judas the way he's said it was too harsh, Judas tells Loni that he's no better than the people in the castle since he used Kyle as "Stahn's son" as well when acquiring a meeting with Woodrow. Judas says Stahn was a hero that cared about his comrades under any circumstances, if Kyle wants to become a hero like his father then he has to realise that even though if it means hurting his pride. Reala then runs out to check on Kyle. Here we see Kyle walking on the street kicking pebbles, Reala runs up to him and Kyle apologizes to her for not being more considerate. He said he felt like an idiot after realising what Judas said to him was all true and felt so embarrased so he ran off. Kyle tells Reala that she can go back first and he wants to stay out here a while longer to cool down a bit. Reala then invites him for a walk so they proceed to a park in ハイデルベルク. Here they both comment how beautiful the scenery is, snowfields of スノーフリア extending out beyond the horizon. Reala says even though the scenery is magnificent, she feels insecure when she sees snowfield without a foot print extending out towards the unknown. Kyle says he feels excited since it'll be fun figuring out what lies beyond the snowfields. Reala says Kyle is really great since just by looking at the same scenery their feelings were exactly opposite. Kyle is eager to find out what lies beyond the snowfield cos he can't see the end but Reala is afraid since she doesn't know what lies beyond the snowfield. Kyle says he thinks that way because he's simple minded like Judas and Loni always say and maybe he should think seriously a bit more sometimes. Reala thinks otherwise and beleives that is where Kyle's charm lies, being lively all the time and positively affecting those beside. She says Judas and Loni must all really like Kyle and she shares the same feeling with them. Just as the atmopshere is starting to get romantic a huge dragon flies towards the castle and crashes into it. Loni and Judas finds Kyle and Reala and says apparently the castle is in some form of crisis.
