Disclaimer:Don't own Namco, ToS or whatnot, just owe this story of mine.
I knew all along... that my half-elf friend is the leader of Cruxis... It will not be long before he reveals himself as Yggdrasil of Cruxis... but what will I do?
Should I stay with Lloyd? my friend since early age... or should I stay with Mithos? My only half-elf friend that I met on this journey?
An age where there will be no discrimination...
That ringed through my head; as well as when Yggdrasil or Mithos said it.
Could his ideal really work? Would discrimination really stop if we all became lifelss beings?
It would work indeed, no one would be discriminated, but... Lloyd says he'll find a way to save both worlds and stop this... do I want to wait for that? maybe it will fail... maybe Lloyd won't be able to do such a hard task...
I couldn't sleep that night, I was sleeping right next to Mithos, my friend. Or shall I say- our enemy.
No... not my enemy... only for Lloyd... I can't possibly have them both at this rate.
something's got to let up... Mithos is going to reveal himself soon.
What should I do?
I eventually got tired and fell asleep. Hoping for the best tomorrow.
I was awoken by strange sounds, I didn't know what was going on, but there was a lot of commotion outside, and I noticed that Mithos was gone...
Oh no! he's already up!
I quickly jumped out of bed, rushing towards outside.
When I went outside, I saw few lifeless bodies of Renegades... and I saw Mithos to the right-
"Mithos! So it's true..." I said, backing off in shock.
"What? that you should have never trusted me? good guess Genis! Because I didn't trust you either!" Mithos said, laughing hard.
Billions of thoughts flew through my mind at that point...
NO! It can't be happening... He won't betray me... this is not true! it's all just a dream!
I was too much in a shock state to notice anything, I sat down on the floor, thinking about this tragic event.
Before I knew it, Presea patted me on the back, I didn't expect that, but it seems like Mithos and the angels that were here left.
"Genis, are you alright?" Presea asked.
"Yes I am fine" I replied, going towards the house.
I didn't want to see anyone. I just wanted some time to be alone... I couldn't possibly believe that my best and only half-elf friend betrayed me...
No! Why? why does it have to turn out like this?
I couldn't sleep for the rest of the night, Mithos betrayed me... I can't think of anything worse that would happen...
Everyone's going to tell me to fight him... but I can't! I won't!
But if I won't... they probably just bring me along anyway...
If I choose to be with Lloyd... the worlds would probably be regenerated, but then discrimination won't stop. People on both Slyvarant and TeThe'alla hate half-elf with every passion they have... Humans would be saved... but waht about us half-elfs?
If I choose to be with Mithos however, I would lose Lloyd and everyone else... including Raine who chooses to side with Lloyd... But discrimination will stop, and the worlds won't exist anymore... everything will be ok... no threats, no discrimination, and best of all... no humans...
Do I really want to side with Mithos? yes I do! but... Lloyd won't be happy... heck! who cares! My life has been nothing but hiding my half-elf self, along with pains and struggle.
why not end it now? Presea is going to be dead when Mithos takes over... besides she likes Lloyd! She won't like a half-elf like me... yeah... even though I run risk of losing my friends and family... I at least have a true friend...
Besides... Lloyd has been more of an ass then Zelos when this whole thing started... letting Colette go by herself to the temple, Acting shamelessly when somebody dropped through a hole. ugh! I don't think I can take Lloyd anymore! he just follows his ideals that are nothing more then fantasies of which 3 year olds think of! He doesn't even know what 7 x 7 for crying out loud! what do I see in him as a friend? nothing!
Sleep found me again, and I know for sure, that when I see Mithos again... I will take my side...
When morning came, Llody said we would go get a doctor for Altessa, which is good enough, Ill have time to think about what to do with Lloyd when I go to Mithos' side.
We were about to get our rheairds, I stood away from everyone, thinking about my plans, but I was interupted when my annoying sister come to me.
"Genis... you knew all along didn't you?" She asked.
"Yeah..." I replied...
"Why didn't you tell us?"
"He was my friend... and he was so nice and all..."
"I know, but you must accept the truth and fight..." She ended, coming over to give me a hug.
Get away from me!
Hah! what do you know sis? you think you can just get me to fight him after all we've been through? you're wrong sis! Just you watch... I will show you the way to true salvation!
I pushed her away, freeing myself, and seeing that the rheairds were ready, I jumped on and got mine started already, during the course of time, I saw Raine with a worried look.
What are you so worried about Raine? that I'd suicide? wrong!
We got onto our rheairds and flew towards Flanoir, we landed safely outside, and we booked the Inn there for the night.
For the rest of the day I stayed away from everyone, just thinking about the plans I have when Lloyd sees the "real" me.
Very soon nighttime came, and I was not going to fall asleep tonight, I was still caught up on my thoughts, and I even planned what to do to each of these hopeless ones.
It was then that I noticed there was something poking me since last night, I reached into my pocket and pulled out an envelop.
I opened it and read the letter inside, it said:
Genis, if you're reading this that means you have recieved my message, now here is what I want to say: For the rest of this week, you have time to think. When you thought over this carefully, I want you to come to Tethe'alla base entrance at your OWN time without anyone seeing you, and tell me if you want to join me...
I didn't need any further thinking, I just springed out of bed and went out the Inn. To make sure that no one would or can follow me, I sneaked to where Lloyd would be, and hoping to steal his Wing pack.
But when I got there, Lloyd was outside, clearly awake, and next to him was Presea!
heh.. I knew it... Presea really does like him! Then it's settled, I have no more vaule in this group! see you all later humans and defiled Raine!
I sneaked away not letting them see me, and I sneaked quitely but speedly to the exit of town so Lloyd and Presea won't see me over the high ground.
Even if I couldn't steal the Wing pack, I dragged my rheaird to the back where I am completely invisible to eye sight.
I activated my Rheaird and flew around the perimeter of the continent, not allowing anyone to see my Rheaird.
I arrived at teh base. I looked around and saw nothing. I continued to walk around when suddenly, three angel worriors appeared before me.
Before a single breath came out of me, I felt 2 familiar arms envelp me around my head, and pulled me towards another body.
"So you have come..." the person said.
"Mithos..." I said, glad to see my friend again.
"So you have made up your final decision?" Mithos asked.
"Of course! I don't need them! You're all I need..."
"Heh... is that so?"
"Yes! let me join you Mithos!"
"Very well. But first, Let's get things settled..." Before I knew it, we teleported away from Ozette and into Welgaia.
"What are we going to do? I don't really have all that much time... they might be worried about me... and I don't want to reveal my cover yet.." I said, enjoying the manatic presence of Welgaia.
"Don't worry.. this won't take long..." Mithos said, grabbing my exsphere from my hand and then placing a red ruby coloured Cruxis Crystal in it's place.
After he had done that, he pushed me into a weird capsule.
I looked over to see the door is now closed.
"Mithos!" I call out in confusion.
"Don't worry, this won't take long..." he said, activating the machine. The mechanisms activated and I felt a weird aura envelop me, first it was just pain on the outside, but soon enough the pain traveled through everywhere on the inside. I couldn't take anymore of it and lost conciousness...
I woke up 10 minutes later, feeling like I am in a whole new body. I noticed I wasn't in the capsule anymore, I stood up and noticed something that was glowing! I turned my head to the left and found that the glowing things were my Orange-coloured wings!
"So how do you feel now Genis?" Mithos said, appearing from behind.
"I feel... great!" I replied.
"Just use your mana to close and open your wings when needed to" he instructed.
"Alright, so what's my first objective?" I asked.
"Tomorrow, I assume Lloyd is going to attack us, and when he does... fake a plan to get the chosen of Slyvarant here!"
"I got you Mithos... I know what I'll do!"
"Good! Now, it might get dangerous if you stay here any longer, so I will see you until tomorrow!" with that, he used his powers to teleport me back to the entrance of Flanoir with my Rheaird.
I sneaked into my room, and pretended to sleep; since I have a cruxis crystal that is blue,
I have all the angel senses without having my self revealed...
tomorrow... is the big day... Lloyd and the others will know how painful it is for someone to betray them and forcing youself to face them...
Lloyd... it has been nice being friends with you, but it's over now! You acted like a complete ass since Colette started the journey of regeneration, and you act like your going to do everything by force... well I tell you, Brains is also important fool...
Colette, You're going to be Martel's vessel... I hope you're ready for this! once Martel takes over you completely, Your mouth will be shut up for good!
Raine... Don't think saying anything can comfort me... I will NOT fight Mithos! He is my best friend and I will side with him... if you got a problem with that, then keep it to yourself...
Sheena go jump off a cliff! I will take you out before you can even take out your worthless summoning spirits!
Zelos the ass! Wait till I show you my power! You'll be begging for mercy! You've been demoted in Cruxis if you haven't gotten the clue...
Presea you can just die with Lloyd! You like him right? then die with him! You don't care about me... so why should I do the same for you? as a matter of fact, why'd I even thought about you in the first place?
Regal... Since you want to die for killing Alicia, then let me fulfill you wish for you! You're right, You do deserve to die!
The next morning came and we all gathered up in front of the Inn, I almost fell asleep in my angel form from Lloyd talking his stupid ideals
We arrived at the tower of salvation, the entrance was closed off by guards so we took an alternating route Yuan got us through and into the main room.
Now it's time! I'll put my plan to use!
I went to the side where the inactivate seal is.
"Colette, try standing here, maybe the seal will activate from your cruxis crystal" I said,
"huh? ok!" She responded.
Perfect! She doesn't know what's coming!
As she stepped on the seal I transfered a small drip of mana through my body to the seal, activating it to look real.
"hahaha!" I laughed raising my hand and making a magic crystal force field form around Colette, hearing her scream enlightened me in joy!
"Genis! What the hell!" I heard Lloyd yell out, as the angels and Pronyma came down and secured Colette.
"ah, Lloyd... why do you sound so angry?" I replied in a very calm state.
"What are you doing! dammit!" He said, enraged.
"Oh just handing Colette over to Mithos, what else?"
Pronyma chuckled a bit and spoke.
"Oh, excuse me for interuptting, but you knew he was with us didn't you?" Pronyma asked smiling.
"What! Thats---" Before Lloyd could finish off his sentence, I cut him in.
"Com'on! I thought your brain would at least work SOME times! you think I'd fight Mithos after all this? you're wrong!" I said.
"Genis... You Bastard! I thought we were friends!" Lloyd said, with more rage.
I laughed out loud, I can't believe what I was hearing.
"Shut up! You think we're friends? You acted nothing but an ass since the beggining! and what do you hope to finish by uniting the worlds? both worlds hate half-elfs and when they are combined,
you're just going to relax while the descrimination for half-elfs build up... It's useless!
useless I tell you! Your ideal would only save the humans... not elves or half-elves! You humans are all the same... greedy!"
"Genis! Why? Why didn't you..." I cut Raine off as well.
"Queit you corrupted sister! if You were to talk to me, you'd get me to turn against Mithos, I don't think so!"
"Pronyma, stop dwandling and let's get going, the angels can take care of this..." I said, teleporting right behind Colette
"Lloyd... Lloyd!" Colette called out.
Annoyed by her calls I finally did what I wasn't able to do before-- throw a mana ball into her,
making her yell out in pain before leaving Lloyd with the guards.
