An explosion of pure evil and surge of sorrow erupt from the body of the dyingbody of the greatest evil on this land
Ultima was dying,clawing its hands everywhere
"I cannot be killed by some mere mortals!" the final words shouted by the menace
"IT IS AGAINTS ORDER!"
A sound erupted from the body,a sound never heard by any living thing in this era as the heroes were blasted of the Airship Graveyard,and a rift below them opened to a normal sky of Ivalice.
"Ovelia!" cried the king of Ivalice,Delita Heiral
"Ovelia! I am so sorry!" he knew it was to late for a Phoenix Down as she was on the verge of crystallization and as guards came when he cradled her lifeless body on his hands,he had a feeling of guilt and remorse 'why hadn't I just grabbed her?'
"Guards,-" he knew not what to say, "There is-is an intruder amidst who killed the queen!Search for him!"
The knights wearing armor of gold and red,a new color decided by the king to symbolize the Kingdom of Ivalice.
The knights carried Ovelia's dead body and applied a substance that prevents crystallization as Delita knelt and stared into nothingness
"I wonder which one of us got the better end off,Ramza?" completely ignoring his stabbed thigh
"My king,Ivalice is in a state of ruin and disruption,and it will be the most logical choice to annex it into the Ciberian Empire" Said as the elemental knight of the Ciberian Empire,Julius Wallace,Commander of the Armies of Ciberius
The king of Ciberius,Valadon Galameister nodded.
"Of course,our spies have recorded the repeated carnage and destruction which ravaged the entire continent,but I would prefer a diplomatic approach to gather them and not in a harsh manner"
"My liege,with all due respect, the Ivalicians have a new kingdom produced by Delita Heiral,a powerful holy knight who was gained the trust of all Ivalice,but he will not surrender Ivalice peacefully,he will not bow to such formalities as he is a proud man and a just ruler,but as said,he will NOT surrender Ivalice peacefully even with hundreds of terms we will offer"
"My words stand still,Julius,but I agree with you,of the diplomatic approach does not work,I will have to use force,besides,they will not have a chance against our armies."
He said as he gazed outside the open window,where his large armies of assorted warriors and war machines of boats and catapults loomed in the distance
"Arrange a weaponless,peacefull meeting with the king of Ivalice in two weeks time,no guards,their territory so they might have a change of heart"
"Ahhhhh!" shouted as Ramza Beoulve and his companions fell to the ground below from the sky
"My back!" the sword saint exclamied as he fell to his back
As all his other friends steadied themselves and bared their,well,bearings,they could do nothing but gaze at the wonderful scenery they saw from the top of the hill
A beautiful blue river cut across the hillside leading to a village surrounded by mountains and forests on three sides,farther out was an elegant castle of pure superiority which rivaled that of Eagrose Castle.
The mere though made him shudder,the war,the bloodshed,all those innocent lives taken by the corrupt Glabados Church and the Templar Knights,save for Isulde who died and Meliadoul who has sided with me
All those thoughts turned to nothingness when Agrias Oaks,who thru all of our quests together became my right hand grabbed my shoulder and stood beside me,I turned to her and uttered
"Beautiful" not realizing Agrias mistook it for something else as they both blushed and turned away
"Anyway" The Holy Knight stammered,trying to change the topic,turned to the group,which was,as usual ignoring the fact that they just SAVED THE BLOODY WORLD,they were doing things normally,as if they didn't fight Ultima.
Alicia and Lavian were flirting with Luso and Balthier,which looked like they were on the verge of laughing,Cloud,still left with nearly no memories except for the name 'Sephiroth' was busy helping princess Alma to her feet accidentally slipped and Cloud was pushed to the floor,along with Alma falling on top of Cloud with their noses touching and they stayed like that for five seconds until Alma stood up and helped Cloud,their hands still held as they went with us to watch the scenery.
(I just imagined that Alma and Cloud would be PERFECT for each other,I'm not changing it,same with Agrias and Ramza,Luso and Alicia Balthier and Lavian)
"Well then" the dark knight said"We should go to that town and ask how to get to Eagrose
The group got up and as Lavian cast a Haste on us,we reached halfway the town and we prepared for a camp,risking a campfire because it got cold,and everyone noticed Alma cuddling beside Cloud but no one paid attention,Orlandeau slept with a blanket after eating a short meal,Rapha and Marach sat and told stories of childhood, was chatting with Mustadio about imbuing magickal guns with the properties of Swordplay,and the others slept while Ramza and Agrias shared a first watch.
Eventually the silence was unbearable as the Holy knight asked her equal opposite,the dark knight
"Dark Knight,when did you first discover this power,Ramza?"
"Well,first I was fascinated by the fell knight Gafgarion and his Fell Sword,but I thought of how to learn it,then in the Scriptures of Germonique,I found a ripped page containing the arts of a dark sword and studied them,I found the very first skill,the Sanguine Sword to drain life from an enemy and transfer it to me,took a very long time to master,almost three months,you can imagine what Abyssal blade and Unholy Sacrifice took"
Agrias,fascinated by the power which he possessed by turning his back on the church,which was an easy thing for him as he saw the wars caused by them
But she cannot do so,even though he still has the page of the scriptures,she is a Holy Knight,they have Divine Knights and Sword Saints in their ranks but cannot learn the Dark Sword because they,just as Agrias have placed to much faith in the church as much as they cannot turn back.
As their watch came to an end minutes later,a rustle woke everyone and prepared them for battle,Ramza had his Chaos Blade and Durandal (in my game,my Ramza is a Darknight,with Martial arts,dual wield,shihiradori and lifefont,I think,his equipment is Chaos Blade,Durandal,Brave Suit,Vanguard Helm and Empyreal Armband) in both his hands as Knight and Mage patrols in blue gathered and surrounded them as the party members woke up
"Ma'm," saitht he knight with the best gear
"You'll need to come with us"
