  14.  
  15. Rose: "They said he was near the Dragonfall Mountains, right?"
  16.  
  17. Rose:"It's hard enough fighting off Dragons, now where have these punks come from too?"
  18.  
  19. Luna: "The Queen seems very worried. With all this constant fighting there's been no time to organize our forces."
  20.  
  21. Cecilia: "We need to hurry to meet him so we can minimize any damage."
  22.

  34.  
  35. Cecilia: "It seems that they decided to make their move while the monsters nearby are causing chaos."
  36.

  46.  
  47. Student Voices: "Urgh... Nemunas... We tried stopping them, but we weren't enough..."
  48.  
  49. Luna: "Where did they go?"
  50.  
  51. Student Voices: "Towards the valley. It hasn't been long, they can't have gone far."
  52.  
  53. Nemunas: "Gotcha. Medics 'n reinforcements are on their way, so just hold tight a lil' longer."

  68.  
  69. Straze: "Huh, there are still some foolish enough to think they can stop me."
  70.  
  71. Straze: "Would you like to see your nation fall as Politia did? If not, get out of my way."
  72. "Nobody knew where the Black Knight had come from, nor his intentions."
  73. "All they knew was that he had reduced Politia to ashes, and unleashed 'that'."
  74. "If his goal is to awaken the ancient beings sleeping in the continent of Eureka..."
  75. "Whether or not he can be stopped will decide the fate of the entire continent."
  76.  
  77.  
  78. Luna: "You won't intimidate me."
  79.

  102. Straze: "Are you finally reaching your limit? You've lasted the longest of all your countrymen."
  103.  
  104. Straze: "You're cocky, but your ability is admirable. How would you feel about joining my army?"
  105.  
  106. Luna: "I have already dedicated my spear and horns to Wintenberg, I have nothing... to offer you!"
  107.  
  108. Straze: "So that's how it is. It will be a shame to have to kill someone as talented as you."
  109.  
  110. Student Voices: "Halt!!"
  111.  
  112.  
  113. "At that moment, the strongest knight in all of Wintenberg emerged from within the snowstorm, flanked by the reinforcements."
  114.  
  115.  
  116. Student Voices: "You dare set those filthy feet of yours on my land?"
  117.  
  118. Luna: "The... The Queen..."
  119.  
  120. Student Voices: "Luna, behind me."
  121.

  123.  
  124.  
  125. "A fierce battle commenced."

  130. *Scene Change to Ramparts*
  131.  
  132.  
  133. Cecilia: "My Queen, the situation is critical."
  134.  
  135. Cecilia: "The battle may be over, but our casualties are overwhelming, and our defenses are all but destroyed."
  136.  
  137. Luna: "We may have repelled the Black Knight's invasion... But I'm not sure we can continue to defend Wintenberg from the Dragons in this state..."
  138.  
  139. Student Voices: "There's no need to worry, I've already thought of everything."
  140.  
  141. Luna: "It was hard to tell what the Queen may have been thinking..."
  142.  
  143. Luna: "But the confident tone of her voice eased my anxiety."
  144.  
  145. Luna: "...Understood. I will put my faith in you, Queen Francesca."

  156. Yufine: "Lunaaaaa, are you going off to fight today, too?"
  157.  
  158. Luna: "Uh-huh, there's been another sighting of the Dragon Ragnar."
  159.  
  160. Yufine: "I wish Dragons and Humans could live happily together without fighting, just like Mom and Dad."
  161. "After the appearance of the Black Knight, enemy to all in Eureka, Wintenberg and a few of the Dragons agreed to a temporary alliance."
  162. "From that point, Dragons sympathetic to Humanity joined Wintenberg's armies, and even Half-Dragons like me were able to become knights."
  163. "Naturally, many Dragons opposed such an alliance, with Ragnar most prominent among them."
  164.  
  165.  
  166. Luna: "I wish so, too, but we cannot simply allow these Dragons to continue to provoke conflict."
  167.  
  168. Luna: "If they will not listen to reason, we must make them submit through force, it's the only way to bring lasting peace."
  169.  
  170. Yufine: "So, if all the evil Dragons are killed, we can finally live happily alongside one another?"
  171.  
  172. Luna: "...Perhaps. The Queen herself yearns for peace between Humans and Dragons."
  173.  
  174. Luna: "I'll be back later. Don't cause any trouble for Mother while I'm gone!"
  175.  
  176. Yufine: "Okay!!"

  186. Scene 8.
  187.  
  188. Ragnar: "Aha... an offspring of Dragons. What brings you here, spear in hand?"
  189.  
  190. Note: Ragnar is literally a Wyvern
  191.  
  192. Ragnar: "Surely it is not to shed the blood of one of your own?"
  193.  
  194. Luna: "I have pledged all I have received as a Dragon to the service of Wintenberg. Just because we both bear horns, does not mean I have no reason to harm you."
  195.  
  196. Ragnar: "A plant cannot become a fish just because it grows underwater."
  197.  
  198. Ragnar: "No matter how much you wish to deny it, it is the truth that Dragonblood flows through your veins. We are kin."
  199.  
  200. Luna: "And yet you will die at my hands. I will never stand at your side."

  207.  
  208. Ragnar: "But since it appears you are still not prepared to talk with me, I have no choice but to retreat for now."
  209.  
  210. Luna: "Don't you run from me!"
  211.  
  212. Ragnar: "Young one, sooner or later, you will come to learn. Humans are the most wicked of creatures..."
  213.  
  214. Ragnar: "You will regret this short time you spent standing by their side for as long as you live."
  215.  
  216. Luna: "Always the same old excuses."
  217.  
  218. Luna: "Still, I succeeded in driving him away. I should get back home."
  219.

  222.  
  223.  
  224. Luna: "Why does the atmosphere around here feel so gloomy..."
  225.  
  226. Student Voices: "Hey, it's Luna! Looks like she didn't leave with the other Dragons."
  227.  
  228. Student Voices: "But once she learns how they left, she'll probably go join them in their valley."
  229.  
  230. Luna: "...Did something happen while I was gone?"
  231.  
  232. Yufine: "Luna!!!"
  233.  
  234. Luna: "Yufine, what's going on?"
  235.  
  236. Yufine: "*sniffling*... It's Mom and Dad... I can't find them anywhere... The other Dragons too..."
  237.  
  238. Luna: "What!? Where have they gone...?"
  239.  
  240. Student Voices: "Dragon Valley."
  241.  
  242. Student Voices: "As soon as the war began to turn against us they fled back to their own territory."
  243.  
  244. Luna: "No way..."
  245.  
  246. Student Voices: "I knew they would betray us eventually... It never made any sense to join hands with those filthy Dragons."
  247.  
  248. Student Voices: "Traitors. I was a fool to expect anything from them."
  249.  
  250. Luna: "No! There's no way Mom would betray Humanity! Or leave Yufine behind like this!"
  251.  
  252. Yufine: "*sobbing* Mom... Dad..."
  253.  
  254. Luna: "Something is wrong here..."

  266.

  278.  
  279. Luna: "Can all the Dragons in Wintenberg really have returned to Dragon Valley? The queen was so certain..."
  280.  
  281. Student Voices: "Waaahh.... *sobbing*"
  282.  
  283. Luna: "I know the sound of that crying!!"

  308.  
  309. Yufine: "I-I don't...know... *sobbing* She was like this when I found her..."
  310.  
  311. Student Voices: "This was the work of the Queen of Wintenberg."
  312.  
  313. Ragnar: "Not just your mother, but so many of our kin... Dead by the hand of a wicked woman."
  314.  
  315. Luna: "No... Why would the Queen kill the Dragons helping Wintenberg...?"
  316.  
  317. Luna: "She said she wanted peace between our races. There was no reason for her to harm the Dragons who took her side..."
  318.  
  319. Ragnar: "Do you truly believe that?"
  320.  
  321. Ragnar: "Didn't the people you swore loyalty to turn their back on you with just one word from the Queen?"
  322.  
  323. Ragnar: "How can you be so sure she herself would not turn her back on us Dragons on a simple whim one morning?"
  324.  
  325. Luna: "That..."
  326.  
  327. Ragnar: "Young child, the promise of a Dragon holds much greater weight than that made by a Human."
  328.  
  329. Ragnar: "These beings hardly live a hundred years before they die, but a single fleeting moment in the lives of our kind, yet they see it as an eternity. They proclaim sincerity with such light hearts."
  330.  
  331. Luna: "...But... Why..."
  332.  
  333. Ragnar: "You look conflicted. I see the time has come for you to be ready to talk with me."
  334.  
  335. Ragnar: "Come here. I will tell you how Wintenberg came to be, and why there can never be peace between Humans and Dragons."

  342.  
  343. Humans: "We know how to raise livestock. If you let us stay, we will give them in tribute!"
  344.  
  345. "They appeared to pose no threat, and it was such a joy to meet another intelligent race, so the Dragons accepted them."
  346.  
  347. "Neighboring nations would not dare attack Wintenberg, under protection as it was by the Dragons, and for hundreds of years they flourished under our guardianship."

  368.  
  369.  
  370. Ragnar: "Until Straze, the Black Knight, appeared, and everything changed."
  371.  
  372. Ragnar: "Faced with two powerful enemies, Wintenberg realized the need to reform and strengthen their military."
  373.  
  374. Ragnar: "They would allow sympathetic Dragons to fight on their side, and admit the once disdained Half-Dragons into their order of knights."
  375.  
  376. Ragnar: "But as the fight with Straze destroyed all of Wintenberg's defenses, they found themselves unable to keep their outside enemies in check."
  377.  
  378. Ragnar: "I'm sure they calculated that rather than rely on recruiting untrustworthy Dragons, why not kill them all, and create new defenses from our dead bodies."
  379.  
  380. Ragnar: "And so a ruler of Wintenberg once again betrayed the Dragons!! And slaughtered your family!!"
  381.  
  382. Luna: "Can that... be true? Could the Queen really have killed all those Dragons open to peace...?"
  383.  
  384. Ragnar: "What is true is the fact that the corpse of your mother currently lies before you."
  385.

  388. "I......I..."

  410.  
  411. Cecilia: "I am."
  412.  
  413. Luna: "Ceci... Are you sure you really want to say goodbye to her like this?"
  414.  
  415. Cecilia: "After my mother died, I thought long and hard. What did she want from me, what must I do from now on...?"
  416.  
  417. Cecilia: "Rather than wallow in self-pity, she would rather I ascended to the throne, and lead Wintenberg forward, finishing what she started."
  418.  
  419. Cecilia: "That's why I'm preparing for my coronation rather than grieving at a funeral."
  420.  
  421. Luna: "..."
  422.  
  423. Cecilia: "...But, of course..."
  424.  
  425. Cecilia: "I'm allowed to be just... a little sad today, right...?"
  426.

  428.  
  429. Luna: "...Yes, Ceci."
  430.  
  431.  
  432. "After a short time, Cecilia left through the door, once again standing strong."
  433.  
  434. "Just like the queen before her, she kept her eyes focused only on what was ahead of her."
  435.  
  436. "I could not help but compare that image to the one of myself, consumed with rage, after losing my own mother."

  460. Luna: "I'll go with Ceci, and Rose can go with Nemunas. Is that okay with everyone?"
  461.  
  462. Rose: "What!? Why do you get to be with Ceci? I refuse! She goes with me!"
  463.  
  464. Nemunas: "R-Rose... I guess I don't live up to your expectations..."
  465.  
  466. Nemunas: "I get it... Ceci's so cool... and strong... Whereas as I'm... just... just 'lil old Nemunas..."
  467.  
  468. Cecilia: "Please don't fight over me. I'll go with Nemunas, so Rose, you go with Luna."
  469.  
  470. Rose: "No, no, no, no, it's not like that! I'm fine with Nemunas!"
  471.  
  472. Rose: "Hmph, but next time I'll seize the initiative, so then I can get Ceci!"

  502. Rose: "What did you just do!?"
  503.  
  504. Rose: "You just pushed Ceci off that cliff!"
  505.  
  506. Nemunas: "That can't be right... Luna'd never do that..."
  507.  
  508. Luna: "Oh, have I been found out?"
  509.  
  510. Luna: "Well then I guess it can't be helped, I'll need to dispose of the two of you as well."
