The Structure of the World

The ancient technologies, known as Lost Technologies, and the modern ones were mingled into this artificial region, Metafalss. We will now try focusing your attention into the structure and construction of this world.

An artificial satellite located in the space, outside of the atmosphere of this planet. It's in here that the Dynamic D-Waves (Symphonic Power, the source of Song Magic) that created the Tower and the Rim are originated, and the responsible for the maintenance of both structures until the current days.

The [Tower] built by the best of the technologies located in Sol Ciel is called [Ar tonelico], howver, the Second Tower that was built in Metafalss is also called [Ar tonelico]. This because the word Ar tonelico is a general term for describing [the Symphonic Power amplifier that was designed and developed by Sol Ciel, and all of its annexed facilities], which is the reason why all the Towers from the First to the Third are called Ar tonelico.

The Second Tower that was built in Metafalss doesn't have the capabilities of a Song Server, and that is because its main purpose was to create the new continent of [Metafalica] over the land of Metafalss. However, because of the Grathnode Inferia, the construction of the Tower was stopped at its cusp part, and because of it, it remained in that form until the current times.

At a glance, you can notice that Metafalss has many places within its unique scenery. The people lives upon the place they built on the summit of the Tower, [Pastalia], and on the circular structure that surrounds the Tower, the [Rim]. The Song Server of Infel Phira floats in the skies above them, and far higher, outside of the atmosphere, floats the artificial satellite of [Sol Marta].

The Tower itself was only built up to its cusp, which is the bell-shaped part, and it was stopped there. And despite the passing of more than 700 years, this Tower, contrary to the First Tower of Sol Ciel, hasn't weathered at all, and continues shining beautifully. It doesn't have the capabilities of a Song Server.

This world is maintained by a pendulum theory, whose summit is Sol Marta itself. Putting it simply, whenever most of the population is still asleep, the world sways at a microscopic width. Strictly speaking, the amplitude of the oscillation is of approximately 500 Stons (1.5 km), and its simple harmonic oscillation for coming and going has been calculated, and it takes around 581 seconds (9 minutes and 41 seconds) to do the complete movement.

By this oscillation movement, the world rotates 180 degrees per day (north and south exchange positions), and the next day, it returns to its normal state (the Foucault Pendulum Theory). This special world movement has been called the [Simple Harmonic World Oscillation], and it's the cause of many unique phenomena that happen within the land of Metafalss. As an example, we have both the sunrise and the sunset. Each day, the direction from the sun rises changes, and likewise it happens to the sunset, so in Metafalss the sun of the odd-numbered days is called the [East Sun], and the sun of the even-numbered days is called the [West Sun].

Given that the Second Tower wasn't planned to be functioning for long periods of time, it wasn't outfitted with the systems that were necessary for doing so. With that said, given that there were also a great number of employees working at such a high altitude, they had to plan again the number of years the Tower would have to remain operational until it was completed, and that was the reason for them to create the mechanisms and systems for the construction of an appropriate environment for life. Even if most of people doesn't know them as anything else than Lost Technologies, here we will explain about these systems and mechanisms.

This world is located on a floating land of sorts, and it takes as the base level the altitude over the [Sea of Death], beginning at [0 Stons over the Clouds], thought the altitude of this world is actually around the same level of the highest mountains of the Himalaya range. Because the environment is so harsh, the people had to create an artificial environment to live, and couldn't afford to fail in doing so. Much like Sol Ciel has its [Musical Corridor] weather control system, Metafalss also has an equivalent, called the [Wings of Hynemos]. This is basically a system for mainly controlling the atmospheric temperature and pressure, the gravity, and the precipitation levels. However, given it wasn't planned to be a system that saw perpetual use for such a long time span, there are some faults on its accuracy, and its range its particularly more narrow than the one of the Musical Corridor.

This means that there weren't any plans to build a floating land around the Second Tower, unlike the [Wings of Horus] (setting of the first game) that exist around the First Tower. And also, the facility where the controls for the Wings of Hynemos are kept is inside of the upper part of the bell-like section of the Tower, meaning that the system itself is in the inner zones of the Tower.

While it also has the Hexagonal Plates rotating around its location, much like the Musical Corridor, its unique exterior appearance is pretty impressive.

The cylindrical structure that we can see being a maintained at the top of the Second Tower, which looks as if it was supporting Pastalia, is the facility where the controls for the Wings of Hynemos are. It's surrounded by eight floating Hexagonal Plates, though the Plates are pretty small, and don't reach even a 1/10 the size of the Plates used by the First Tower's Musical Corridor. Because of that, their effective range is much narrower.

Established as the core of this world, the [Gyroscope] is a system designed for calculating the Simple Harmonic World Oscillation. When the Tower was still being designed, it was thought that would be a good idea to have an accurate measuring instrument, a sensor that could perceive the course and amplitude of this world, according to the natural clouts.

This world is provided of Symphonic Power and sustained by Sol Marta, and because of its pendulum movement, the Gyroscope is always measuring the amplitude, degree of movement, and change of position of the core, and this is what allowed increase the accuracy of the calculations, until the point in which it could calculate the absolute position of this world.

It's the circular mechanism located in the lower part of the Second Tower, positioned as if it was encircling the Gyro Stabilizer.

It had the role of measuring the movements on all directions, and after being corrected by the Gyro Stabilizer, get used as the main reference during the creation of the Tower. It was established in the region where Mint Block (the Ironplate Desert) is located.

The [Gyro Stabilizer] is a system designed to judge if the amplitudes detected by the Gyroscope have any measurement errors, and corrects the direction and amplitude whenever that happens. It's because of this that the Simple Harmonic World Oscillation could be reduced, and remove external factors to the Oscillation itself such as the wind, and had the purpose of allowing the Second Tower to be made without any design mistakes.

This is the protuberance pointing down that can be seen when looking the world from the underside. It's connected to the lowest residence stratums of Pastalia (the Slums) through an elevator, though it hasn't been used in ages. In the innermost part of this facility is where the Hymn Crystal [Viena] was stored by Raki.

All of the physical structures we can see sticking out from the Sea of Death in Metafalss are pretty much mere [virtual images]. Actually it would more accurate to say that everything is made up from Symphonic Power (Dynamic D-Waves), and structure in a way that is far more complex than normal Song Magic. And the facility that crafts this song is [Sol Marta], which is floating beyond the highest strata of the atmosphere. The people are basically living upon structures that could be described as holograms created by Sol Marta.

Its name means [Motherly Light] in Hymmnos, and its purpose is constantly emitting Dynamic D-Waves to preserve the structures that were created through it: the [Drafters] and the [Second Tower]. However, Sol Marta itself is no more than the system for doing so, while the one that actually crafted and sings the Song that created and maintains these structures is a Reyvateil Origin. This why said Singer, who is Frelia, was called the [Goddess] by the people of Metafalss. Frelia was originally sent to this region so she, together with Sol Marta, could create the continent of Metafalica (details on P.079).

This is the characteristic glass sphere chamber that is located in the own heart of Sol Marta. This enormous glass sphere is called the [Ar Ciel Sphere], and it's the place where Frelia sang and dance to, little by little, create the Tower. If you looked down from this area, the blue shine of the planet of [Ar Ciel] would be reflected in your eyes, while if you looked up, you would be able to see an entire sky filled with stars. This area is essentially empty, with the exception of a big crossroad without rails, and that was because this space was intended only for Frelia's singing. And well, given that the Ar Ciel Sphere is taken as part of Sol Marta when looked of the outside, this is the reason why it has the same shape as a Heart of the Land. From that, you would be able to guess that the Ar Ciel Sphere is the [Heart of the Land of Sol Marta].

It's a huge area located in the very center of Sol Marta. This was the very same place that Enja raided back in the Second Era, and the same place in which Croix's group fought their final battle against Rhaki.

This time, Croix's group managed to reach Sol Marta thanks to Luca singing EXEC_VIENA/. and making the [Tower to the Heavens] reappear.

As you might have guessed from the stories in the Metafalss History section (check on P.079 for reference), Sol Marta wasn't built by the people of Metafalss. Because of that, its administration and management was on the hands of the Elemians, the residents of the First Tower. And if an emergency occurred, they had another way of keeping Sol Marta under their control, in the form of the Maintenance Droid, [Rhaki].

With the exception of maintenance and administration of the systems, she was in charge of the provision and suspension of the flow of Dynamic D-Waves of Sol Marta, though she didn't have complete authority to interrupt said flow based on her own judgment, and her decisions actually were always left to the information she received from the First Tower.

The information that Rhaki received from the First Tower were divided in two categories: the first one was information that the humans sent her about specific events, and in normal conditions, while the other was information sent from an automatic manual, which was only sent in emergency situations. According to the instructions featured in the later one, which Rhaki could receive from any of the two Towers, if anything happened to Frelia, she would automatically counterattack the cause, and she also is able to lower the Symphonic Power output of Sol Marta.

Because of the happening of the Grathnode Inferia on 3040 AD, the communications with the First Tower were permanently cut off, and Frelia, in her complete isolation, decided to enter into a Cold Sleep Pod. Said Pod was located in her room inside Sol Marta, farther deep inside than the Ar Ciel Sphere, and around it, with the passage of the long years and months, the plants began sprouting. In just a flash, they began overflowing around the Pod, and in a short time, one of them became a gigantic World Tree, which would be later on known as the [Tree of Marta].

The Tree of Marta had as its heart the Pod where Frelia was sleeping, from where it began growing, and no one knew where it would stop, and after some time, it ended created a forest that was around five times the size of Sol Marta. This marvelous grassland that could be seen be looking up to the space was called [Soragahara/Celestial Plains*]. To be more exact, the green field that extended in front of Croix's group while they were climbing up the Tower to the Heavens in the current times was the Celestial Plains.

  • The name is a pun on 高天原/Takamagahara (High Plains of the Heavens),

which is the dwelling place of the Kami (Gods) on the Japanese Mythology.

The [Divine Drafters] that were created for the creation of the Tower in this world are actually four rings that receive the name of [Drafter Rings]. The Rings are classified into two kinds: the horizontal one that has a metallic surface over it, and over which the people made their living is called the [Conductor Vision (CV)], and the three rings that surround this world are all called the [Drafter Vision (DC)].

The three DV rings that rotate in the external part of this world have as an distinctive characteristic that all of them rotate at different radiuses, angles, and altitudes. Again, the CV, which is known as the [Rim] in the current times, also has its own unique characteristics. Although it is larger than the DVs thanks to its horizontal surface, it was originally designed just to be a drafter, and as such, its width can't be expanded even more. And despite this, the people of the Rim managed to make their lives upon the little space that the ring had. They managed to build a railroad network over this thin ring, cultivated land little by little, and despite the hardships, they carried on their lives.

Contrary to the approximately 400 Stons (1.2KM) of diameter that the Tower has, the gigantic rings of the DV, even the smallest one, have around 4800 Stons (14.4KM) of diameter. Under normal conditions, Frelia deployed these rings into the foremost line of her work zone, and created the Tower with them, but after the Grathnode Inferia, the three Rings completely stopped functioning.

An enormous ring whose diameter is of around 4700 Stons (14.1KM). Given that the width of the ring is somewhat irregular, it has various places where it is wider than other, of which the widest one is of around 200 Stons (600M), while the narrowest one is of 5 Stons (15 Meters), which makes up a pretty harsh environment. However, since 3313 AD, this Ring stopped being a complete circle, given that one of its parts collapsed and fell off.

After Frelia operated the CV and the DV, this Lens virtually formed the materials for the Tower from thin air whenever it was exposed to an strong burst of light. This is the most visible of the Lost Technologies that can be seen in the surface of the Rim, and at the foot of the Lens is where the final station of the Souffle Axis, the Promised Hill, is located.

This is the crescent moon-shaped thick structure than can be seen towering above the Rim. It's located pretty near to the place called the Clouds' Wharf, and while in the current times it's just another piece of Lost Technology, in its past days, it had the role of controlling the sequence of execution for the Divine Drafters, and at the same time, as the device for authenticating the singer that was creating the Tower.

Given that the plans for the creation of the Tower are drawn from the DV, the DV itself exposes a lot of lines made of light, and these lines are actually a wireframe draft (drafter) drawn on the internal spaces of it, which were copied to the CV. The remains of this can be seen in the underground tunnels of the Dreamy Fields, which allow you to see the entrails itself of this world. This is because these tunnels are actually ruins from establishments that have existed since more than 700 years ago and until the current times, easily discernible from the colors they have. And this is because the inside of CV, namely the Rim, was drafted by the DV, but there weren't any plans for how wide it was going to be at the end, from the start it was something comparable to a papier mache structure.

Infel Phira

Infel Phira means [Seed of Love] in Hymmnos, and its name comes from the fact that it was the device developed with the purpose of fulfilling the dream of the people of Metafalss, the creation of Metafalica. It was the only main structure made completely by the Metafalssians, and as the crystallization of the sciences at the time, it wasn't something that was built during the First Era. In the current times, Infel Phira merely continues floating in the skies above Metafalss, and it was born in the Second Era as a result of the proposal of Metafalss continuing with the Metafalic Project by themselves. It would be a completely different matter from the Project they had developed in conjunction with El Elemia during the First Era. The successful development of Infel Phira meant that Metafalss didn't have to continue depending on the First Tower, and as such, they received a Song Magic Server which could be accessed through the unique dialect of the [New Testament of Pastalie]. Thanks to this, the dream of Metafalica becoming a reality finally became possible.

As a Song Magic Server, Infel Phira has only a 1/1000 of the power that Ar tonelico has (details in P.091). However, it also has some unique specifications, such as: [Being able to be accessed by its exclusive and optimized Hymmnos dialect, the New Testament of Pastalie], [Having Three Modes], and [Having more superficial Shared Consciousness Fields]. These all are special capabilities that Ar tonelico doesn't have.

And with Metafalss having access to these unique functions, it was specialized for the role in would play in the creation of Metafalica.

It floats in the skies above the Tower, a little higher than the highest point of the Tower. Its outer circumference is surrounded by blocks arranged in different levels, which shape up the various flat rings that coil around it, and the sphere itself that makes up the main body is structured by blocks as well. It was damaged during the War that happened back in 3313 AD.

Even if the Metafalica legends have existed since very ancient times, it was pretty unexpected that the keys for their realization didn't finish appearing until the Infel Phira Project was settled.

The details about it can be found on the Metafalss History (P.079) section, so here we will just limit to explain the history related to Infel Phira. For starters, the origin of this project was the Metafalica Theory that Jaza invented. This was the practical usage of many Sound Science theories that were established during the First Era, and it could be possible to create the continent by extracting limitless amount of the power that Sol Marta had. However, because it wasn't 100% fail-proof, what was thought to be a brilliant theory ended being forgotten in the darkness of history.

However, it later on served as the basis for when the Infel Phira project was born during the Second Era, and it's closely related to the creation of the Infel Phira we know from the current times.

Whenever a Reyvateil Downloads a Song from an Hymn Crystal, generally they have to be recognized by Ar tonelico through a confirmation ID called the [Hymn Code], which will then allow them to proceed with the Download.

However, in the case of Infel Phira, there isn't an equivalent identification system, so it was planned that if the abilities of the IPDs that attempts the download are enough to meet the power requirements of the Hymmnos, then she will be able to perform the Download as she wishes, and if her abilities are insufficient, then the Download will automatically cancel itself out. Here we will be explaining the commands used during the Download Ceremony for Infel Phira.

Infel Phira possesses a transformation capacity called [Mode Shift]. which can only be activated by the [Maiden of Mio(= the Queen)]. This was made with the purpose of allowing the change of Infel Phira's functions, though actually, after Infel failed at the created of Metafalica, this became a lost function until Cloche executed Replekia.

Originally, there were a total of six Modes planned for usage, but they were later on reduced to the half (only the three Modes described below with pictures) because the others were removed during the Second Stage. This was because all of the modes were intended to be used for any situation, and some of them could be considered as extremely grave violations to the human rights. Still, given the kind of strings the Grand Bell was pulling behind the scenes and their intentions in doing so, it's easy to imagine for what they would be used. In the current times, the records related to the removed modes, starting with the Messela Mode, have been completely eliminated, and even the documents in which their names appeared have been lost.

The Normal Mode. And as long as it doesn't receive any orders from the Maiden of Mio, Infel Phira stays in this Mode.

Sarre Mode allows all the Reyvateils to have their own individual consciousness, and at the same way, keeps the Shared Consciousnesses in a way in which they can't mingle with each other. In short, this the same condition the Standard Reyvateils have whenever they access to Ar tonelico, and it's also the Mode under which Infel Phira and the IPDs were made. This Mode is also know by the alternate name of [Individual Consciousness Mode].

In additions, in the current times, you might be able to see whenever you look to Infel Phira in the skies that it has suffered a great damage. These are the vestiges of Raki's counterattack during the War of 3313 AD.

Even if it doesn't unite the Shared Consciouness of the many IPDs, this Model unifies the Dynamic H-Waves that they emit, and allows them to craft them into a single Song. Among the unique things the IPDs have in their anatomy, there is the usage of the E-Spots (details on P.092), and since for the crafting of a Song it only needs the emission of Dynamic H-Waves, it doesn't need to open the Boundary Gates that the Reyvateils have within their Soulspaces. In short, it has the merit of letting the IPDs combine their powers without the associated risks that would come with the complete sharing of their Soulspaces.

For the execution of Replekia, the singer requires to have the [Queen Registry], and also, to be transcribed and registered as a Lv. 9 IPD. Only the IPDs that fulfill both conditions are qualified to be appointed as the [Maiden of Mio].

And furthermore, given that the power of a Song crafted through Replekia it's so immense, its use as a weapon had been highlighted a lot in the recent times. For example, this Mode was used in the 3770's for declaring the War to the Goddess.

In contrast to Replekia, which uses the E-Spots of the Reyvateils while their Boundary Gates are still closed, this Mode, also called the [Shared Consciousness Mode], completely releases the Shared Consciousnesses of all the Reyvateils. Historically, this Mode has only been used twice, and Grammul developed it as a Mode that would be exclusively used for the creation of Metafalica.

Originally, Tornekia was a Mode Shift triggered by a Metafalss Note Song called [METHOD_TORNEKIA/.]. However, once Infel noticed that this wasn't going to be enough for the creation of the land, she developed [METHOD_METAFALICA], and given that this Song also server as a patch for EXEC_METAFALICA/., Tornekia Mode was reborn as [Metafalica Mode] (also known as the Land Consciousness Mode). Because of that, there isn't anyone now that knows the Tornekia name.

Messela Mode

This Mode is also called the [System Control Mode].

This forces a one-directional opening of the Boundary Gates of the IPDs, and has the effect of giving all the IPDs the same knowledge and consciousness. This was used to control Infel Phira in emergency situations, but given that it also allowed other people to control the will and emotions of the IPDs, it became an extremely serious problem for the human rights of the Reyvateils. Despite the fact that later the Grand Bell enacted a total prohibition on the usage of this Mode, it couldn't be a bigger hypocrisy, given that if this Mode was eliminated, they would have lost their method for controlling the IPD Outbreaks.

Also known as the [Great-Scale Gathering Mode], it has the effect of measuring what are the limits on the Shared Consciousnesses of the individuals, and it was developed as a step to experiment on if Tornekia would be possible to implement, so it could be considered as a limited form of Tornekia. The Mode was the only one that could give to many IPDs the Queen registry (which is the same as the Maiden of Mio) because it could automatically open the consciousness of all the IPDs that were in a radius of 10 Stons around the Queen. This characteristic was thought as something that could be useful in times of war. In the current times, the Torcarrol Mode is used in an abnormal Mode Shift, and is the cause of the so-called Negative outbreaks of the IPDs.

This Mode strips away the ego of all the living IPD Reyvateils, and makes all of them into a single Reyvateil. This means that this was intended for the Revateils to reach a complete synchronization state, and it was developed as one of the main parts observed in Grammul's ultimate Reyvateil theory. However, after the investigation had finished, and because the minds of all the Reyvateils had become a single agglomeration, the researchers became aware of a great problem: no matter if Infel Phira was reverted to Sarre Mode, the individual consciousness of each Reyvateil weren't going to revert into their fundamental status. Because at this point there wasn't a solution found for that problem, Deenelmaite Mode was left behind as a test step, and sealed away.

In the current year, 3772 AD, the total of the population residing in Metafalss has been estimated to be approximately 850.000 people, among which 69.000 are residents of the city lodged in the top of the Tower, Pastalia. The most numerous among these people are the Human Metafalssians, which are the native residents of this land. This is because there wasn't a great flow of immigrants, given that the other countries are very far away from Metafalss, and furthemore, Metafalss is surrounded by many extremely high mountains. However, there are still some people that seem to have inherited features that only the descendants of the Cielians (Ciel-class people, and inhabitants of Sol Ciel) and Clusterians (Cluster-class people, and inhabitants of Sol Cluster) would have.

Among the total population, the PPR (Person Per Reyvateil) ratio is used to designate the awakened Reyvateils, while the PPPR (Person Per Potential Reyvateil) ratio is used to designate the ones that carry Reyvateil genes, but haven't awakened yet.

Given that around 40% of the Metafalssian women are all Reyvateils, this means that the PPPR ratio reaches the 78% mark, which is a so-high level that isn't seen anywhere else in the world. Actually, while only the girls can manifest as Reyvateils, the boys also have these genes latent within them, so there is also a possibility that these genes aren't inherited from the mother, but rather, from the father. This is the reason why it's the typical method to apply the PPPR ratio to find out what could be the actual number of Reyvateils within the population.

The origin of this high Reyvateil ratio is because the fact that it has been said that the Reyvateil have always lived in Metafalss, with no periods in history in which they were absent. This was because if the supernatural powers of the Songs faded away, the Metafalssians wouldn't be able to survive in this harsh environment. To the people, the powers of the Reyvateils were like the powers of the gods, and after the Maiden of Mio, Infel, invented the Diquility (the Life Extending Agent), this had an extremely important effect in the increase of the Third Generation Reyvateil population.

A long time ago, the people that belonged to the minority people of Metafalss were the only inhabitants of this land, and even now, the total population is mostly comprised of people of this class (beyond a 70%).

Given that the Metafalssians are grounded on extremely spiritual ideologies, they despise the excessively materialistic civilizations, and given that they always looked forward to polish their spirits, they never forgot the true soul of the Songs, making them an unique kind of people, so much to the point of drawing the line that makes them different from the Cielians and Clusterians. Appearance-wise, they have as their characteristics having a thin hair that can go from golden to light brawn, and robust complexion. Of course, there also some that are of mixed blood with other classes.

Within the planet of Ar Ciel, there are two huge races, called the Cielians and the Clusterians, and this percentage indicates how many of each one of them live among the people of Metafalss.

The Cielians are the people that live in the region of Sol Ciel, which had El Elemia as its capital, having as their defining characteristics having light brown and wavy hair, and a relatively carefree disposition. On the other side, the Clusterians are the inhabitants of the region of Sol Cluster, which had El Duel as its capital, and appearance-wise, they are characterized by having black and straight hair, and having a diligent, yet violent disposition. Given the homogeneity of the Metafalssians, which comprise the largest population group of this land, both the Cielians and Clusterians are pretty much unusual races in here.

The Terus are sub-race of the humans that use an unique kind of magic, and characterized by their horns, tail and brown skin, which also happens to make them half-dragon. They are scattered about around all the world, and a long time ago, and small group of them arrived even to the remote land of Metafalss.

On the Metafalss of the 3700's, the Terus are so few that they aren't even recognized as such, and typically, they are just recognized as the Dive Shop clerks. There were also some that survived hiding away within Kanakana Pier, but they were so few that they had to mix with other races, and as result, there weren't any pureblooded Terus left among the ones in Kanakana Pier.

The politics, economy and industries all have their origin and center in the capital city: that is, they are all gathered in Pastalia. The blessed city of Pastalia is the place to which everyone of the surrounding region, the Rim, before soon, there was a great number of people that was seriously thinking about moving there. However, to receive the right of residence in Pastalia, the people needed a certain tag, called a Plate. Only the people have been deemed applicable by the Pastalian authorities are considered, and among them, only a select few are chosen.

Furthermore, there are two kinds of Plates. The Meta-Plate, which was first issued during the times of the 19th Maiden, Illusha, and the Nero-Plate, which is given to the people that have been recognized as qualified to live in Pastalia because of special reasons. Both of them give the same privileges to the bearer, though the Meta-Plate seems to have been issued the most. And regardless of which one is carried, both Plates have to be renewed at least once per month, and the process also entails paying a certain fee. These are the taxes that have to be paid in exchange for being able to live in Pastalia.

The middle and lower zones of Pastalia have a flat surface and as such, it's in there that agriculture was stretched. Given that they had to cultivate an extremely narrow area, they devised many methods for doing so, such as a farm that exists over a lake like a floating island, or a geoform that uses crystals and mirror to make the light of the sun reach these underground areas, which are facilities that should be named the crystallization of their knowledge.

The farmers are generally people of the lower classes or migrant workers that come from the Rim. However, despite the great efforts they make, the food that this land produces is far behind from the amount produced in the Wings of Horus. Because of this, even if the distribution of the food is rationated for the Pastalians, the quantity of food they receive is no more than the bare minimum to continue living.

The heart of the commerce is the business district, which can be understood the easiest by how the residents call it the "Market". Although all of them are pretty prosperous, the middle-class citizens usually visit the most a market called the Star Market.

The Star Market is a place that was designated as an special economic zone where everyone can walk around freely, though the Pastalians still can't get used to this fact, since they get very surprised whenever the many customers from the Rim come. The markets have an extremely high responsibility because they are in charge of the distribution things such of food and luxury groceries.

Thanks to the conveniences brought by Sound Science, there are many shops that sell the items of daily necessity. Of course it has its underside, which is the black market that operates in the underground, and that is mainly used by the residents of the Slums. Here, the daily necessity items are often mingled with illegal stuff, and all of them are sold and bought at extremely high prices.

The factories and industries of Pastalia are all located in deeper levels than the business district, in ruins and abandoned buildings located in the inner zones of Pastalia that were reused for housing them. This because the land in the inner zones is cheaper, and also is pretty close to the energy source of Pastalia: the Water Mill.

Given that the Symphonic Power provided by the Water Mill has also plenty secondary usages, such as the trams and the elevators, both the public facilities and the factories make use of it as their energy source. Among the factories, most of them actually work in the developing of projects related to the public works, that have quite huge scope.

Before, this kind of industry was used extensively in the construction of gigantic cylindrical structures to keep the Tower stable, and they suddenly received a great growth when they started manufacturing charge piles. And given that there are always great demands for remodeling and construction works, the construction industries are also very highly regarded.

Unlike Sol Ciel, in which the Reyvateils were treated as objects, in Metafalss, while they were persecuted when they first arrived, with the passing of time, the people began to warm up to them, and eventually began respecting them. This became especially apparent after 3040 AD, the year of the Grathnode Inferia, when the powers of the Song Magic of the Reyvateils continued saving the people from all the troubles they had. Because of that, in the current times, the respect has reached a point in which the Reyvateils became extremely revered beings by the humans.

The most poignant difference in how the Reyvateils are treated in both lands could be how the distribution of the most important for their survival: the Life Extending Agent, Diquility, is handled. In contrast to Sol Ciel, where the Diquility was monopolized by the corporative giant Tenba and the Church of El Elemia, and they had to pay outrageous sums of money for it, in Metafalss it's provided to them by the Grand Bell at no cost, even if they live in the most remote areas of the Rim (though there are still some rare cases in which it doesn't get delivered at all). This also means that this is a much more favorable environment for the Reyvateils to live in.

However, even if the Reyvateils are regarded as the most revered beings in Metafalss, a special kind of them, called IPDs (Infel Phira Dependants) are an exception to this. The IPDs are a kind of Reyvateil unique to Metafalss, and very dangerous because they sporadically lose consciousness and start attacking the people, so as soon an outbreak is discovered, a troop of the Grand Bell Knights is sent to quarantine and contain them. The IPD potential of the Reyvateils living in Metafalss is said to be present in about a 48% of the total Reyvateil population, of which the contained IPDs make around a 20% of said percentage.

The Reyvateils that live in Sol Ciel, for making themselves stronger, employ the following method: taking a Grathnode Crystal that has strong effects, and putting it in contact with their Install Port, to finally insert it (Install). However, this method also puts an strong burden over the body of the Reyvateil, and each Install inflicts a great pain in them, so in Metafalss, the Grand Bell devised a method in which the Reyvateils could get stronger without having to suffer so much several hundreds of years ago. Said method is called Dualstall, and it basically it's a process in which the waves contained in a Dualithnode Crystal enter into the body of the Reyvateil via osmosis.

This is made by disseminating the waves contained in a Dualithnode Crystal through a liquid in such a way that they can reach the Reyvateil, and this done in practice by submerging the crystals inside of a bathtub, and letting the Reyvateil bathe in it. By using this method, the Reyvateil is able to heighten her abilities in a comfortable way. However, the more stronger Dualithnode Crystals also emit waves that are as powerful as the effects they have, and in case a wave is too powerful, the Reyvateil will receive an hyperinfluence, which in the worst of cases can end up killing her. The only way to counter this problems is by dispersing the waves between various targets, so it is advised that many Reyvateils bathe together when performing a Dualstall.

After the Grand Bell was established as the government system, the central power was put in the hands of the Pope and the Maiden. The Pope was in charge of politics, and of ruling the citizens, while the Maiden guided the people a symbol of religious faith.

At these times, this kind of government had its merits, such as the political structure that allowed the parts in charge of faith and politics to have equivalent responsibilities and power, and it was considered as the ideal government system.

However, in 3751 AD, Alfman, taking advantage of the death of the current Pope, rose to the top of the political ladder, and assassinated the successor to the Pope. And after exterminating almost all of the Papal Family, he also killed Maiden Arshe, and established a regime through a coup d'etat.

Given that his way of doing things was so impatient, yet so coercive, the Alfman regime began to boisterously announce that they would realize Metafalica, and the necessity of a war against the Goddess. And so, once he brought Cloche Leythal Pastalie to the Grand Bell in 3760 AD, and gave her the position of the Maiden, the people gave him an overwhelming amount of support. So as a result, what could be Alfman`s true intentions? Despite having the mysterious man, Loude, behind him, Alfman was a very zealous believer of Metafalica, and had the utmost passion for the creation of these high ideals. Because of this, when he learned the truth in Kanakana Pier... he told himself that he couldn't allow the people to be transmigrated into mental beings because of the Pact with the Goddess: the Hibernation Project. Alfman' s goal was to defeat the Goddess, and create Metafalica for the sake of the people, and for that purpose, he needed the power of Replekia, the power that Cloche had as the Maiden of Mio. And also, because of the coercive way in which he had the authority of Metafalss in the palm of his hands, he silenced every possible opposition to his government. This also meant that the people of the Grand Bell that actually wished to carry on the project of transmigrating the minds of the people were tagged as unreliable by Alfman.

In the internal structure of the Grand Bell previous to the 3100's, the one that had the highest level of power weren't the Pope and the Maiden, but a Maiden Chamber and its Guardians. The Maiden Chamber had the complete administration over all the government facilities and information, but under no circumstances their orders would invalidate the ones given by the Pope.

However, while the Maiden Chamber was under direct orders of the Pope, and had a privileged position because of it, the Pope had also to be careful that they didn't try to dictate any despotic laws. Once 3255 AD came about, the Tsukikanade and Guardian systems were abolished, and the Grand Bell proclaimed itself as a government system in which anyone from the people could freely pry in. On this same year, the Grand Bell slowly began undergoing a democratization process, and ended becoming both a government structure, and the armed militia of Metafalss.

Under the old regime, the person that held the highest degree of authority was the Maiden, and was revered as the only one that could hear the voice of the Goddess. She generated a lot of movement in the political scenario as the leader of the Maiden Chamber, and because of the many acts she did, she gained a lot of place in the hearts of the people, and her glamour was something that greatly extended the power of Metafalss as a nation.

On the other side, the Tsukikanade, the scholars that were in charge of explaining spiritualism, became researchers of Song Magic, and also became politicians. The Pope chose three from them that were experts on military, the politics, and wave science (Song Magic) and called them Guardians, which received the position of First, Second and Third Guardians, according to the reliance and trust the Pope had in them. Also, the twelve Tsukikanade formed a group called the [Sages], and they, together with the Guardians, had pretty exceptional abilities. However, in a relatively short time, the Tsukikanade lost their worth as Shamans, and on 3255, the Pope decided to abolish their existence together with the Guardians, so both groups were dissolved.

After having killed of both the successor of the Pope (Targana's father) and Maiden Arshe; and having established a completely new regime through his coup d'etat, Alfman went and performed a complete reformation on the structure of the Grand Bell. The most radical part of this was that the Maiden got removed of her duties as the highest part of the Grand Bell chain of command, and in contrast to the equivalent positions of the Maiden and the Pope, the Maiden was now under the orders of the Maiden Chamber, which was regulated by Alfman himself. This meant that the Maiden was deprived of the authority rights she had as the [One that heard and transmitted the Voice of the Goddess], and now was reduced merely to being the spokeswoman of the Grand Bell. The Imperial Guards that were under direct orders of the Maiden were also abolished, were integrated into the rest of the military forces.

However, nothing of this was actually revealed to the public, so the citizens of Metafalss continued thinking during these times that the Maiden still was the one that held the highest authority in this land.

Leglius, which was chosen by Alfman himself as the Knight Captain, was one of the Imperial Guards under the direct orders of the Maiden in the previous regime. However, because of Alfman's reform of the entire system, in the current regime he belongs to the normal knights, given that the Imperial Guards got integrated into them. Even if the former Imperial Guards were abolished, they still are included among the ones that have the duty of protecting the Maiden.

Because of the increase of the damages caused by the IPDs, on 3754, a department was established for exclusively dealing with them. In the current times, it has been upgraded into a system that has never failed to protect the safety of the citizens of Pastalia. Once an outbreak has been detected and its location marked thanks to the Lakra System, they have the duty of sending out knights to contain them as quick as possible, to try to reduce the damage caused by them to the lowest possible.

Because it was thought too coldly, the preferred action for the knights to take was to capture and then slaughter the outbroken IPDs, which was thought to be too cruel.

Given how inhuman was the treatment towards the outbroken IPDs stood out among the population, this ended triggering both favorable and unfavorable responses from the citizens about this way of containing them. Furthermore, depending on the scale of damage, they could even send a demand for the elite knights to be dispatched to the area of the outbreak.

A descendant of the People of Mio. Because of the special abilities she had, which allowed her to find the whereabouts of the IPDs, she was integrated into the Lakra System. Given that she ended becoming a part of the system as long as she lives, she was locked up in a chamber in the lower areas of Pastalia, and only continues accomplishing her duty.

Formerly, although the Grand Bell Knights used to directly go and contain the outbroken IPDs, currently the IPD Investigation and Containment Chamber decides how they will deal with them. Currently, the function of the IPD Investigation and Containment Chamber has is the quarantining of the IPDs (which actually isn't different at all from capturing them). The countermeasures differ depending on the scale of the incident, and while there are situations where the damages are too large and all the knights are dispatched at once to contain the outbreak, there are also many cases in which the knights can choose to be dispatched alone or in small groups to perform the containing.

The measures the knights can take for dealing with the outbroken IPDs include among other things being able to track their whereabouts thanks to being able of receiving information from the Rakura System through a Telemo portable terminal. And also, they can receive the support of civilians that have excellent combat capabilities, such as Cocona, which are accepted as being supporters of the knights in their missions (this is called the "Satellite System"). And also, the final measure to take after defeating the IPD will be variable, depending on the gravity of the incident.

Background Story - The Pure Heart of the Knight Captain

~バッツ、聆紗、レグリスの別れ~

~The Parting of Batz, Reisha and Leglius~

口にできない想いを密めたまま、バッツとともに去る聆紗の背中を見送った若き
日のレグリス。それから長い時が流れ、二人は家族を得て、
そして失った。ミント区で再会した聆紗とレグリスの胸に去来する想いは、果た
してどんなものだったのだろうか。

As if it were because they hid feelings that they were unable to express, both Reisha and Batz turned their backs on young Leglius as they left, while he only saw them off. From that point, the long time flowed on, both formed their own families, and lost them.

When Leglius and Reisha finally met again in Mint Block, they had many recurring feelings within their hearts, and wondered what they had fulfilled during their lives.

 「保護? 何のことです!?」
 「何だ、他の連中はいないのか。お上の命令無視

Reisha loved Leglius, but she wasn't able to say it about his personality, and she just kept it as a secret in her heart, always.

She also loved Batz, and because of his personality, he was officially regarded by everyone around them as [Reisha's Lover].

Even though Leglius had a lot of respect for Batz, when it came to Reisha, he had to swallow up all of his personal feelings, because of the fact that when they were first introduced, Batz introduced Reisha to Leglius as [She's my girlfriend].

Arshe also loved Batz a lot, which is the reason why Batz came to the palace very frequently. He also considered Leglius as his lovable trainee, and always took him together to do various things, from eating to training. Despite Leglius being a very stubborn person, he actually had a lot of fun whenever he was togetjer with Batz and Reisha. This was the reason why he felt so relieved when he was with them, and this eventually turned him into an even haughtier boy than Batz.

Arshe was the classic selfish, princess-like girl, which always asked unreasonable demands to Batz, whose routine consisted in being forced to do these nigh-impossible tasks. Given that Batz's behaviour towards Arshe was unprecedented, they followed the role of "ball attendants" for the two of them, and while this brought to all of them a lot of hardships, this also made them into very close friends after a short time.

These relationships continued normally for 2, and 3 years.

Arshe was a very special person to Batz. However, he couldn't ever dream of becoming her lover, especially because Arshe was the Maiden, and furthermore, she was already married. And in just a short time later, she was already giving birth to her first daughter.

However, this also made that Reisha had a pretty angry face whenever he saw her.

It was because of jealousy? But... from a married woman...?

This was an scar in Reisha's heart, which always made her depressed, but it was finally patched up because of a certain incident. The Coup de'Etat perpetrated by Alfman... the incident where Maiden Arshe was assassinated...

The next year, the entirety of the Grand Bell simply feigned this wasn't their fault, and wrote in the official records that the tragedy of Lady Arshe's death was the result of the attack of a group of outbroken IPDs. Hidden from the knights, Alfman sent a group of IPD Reyvateils guided by Loude, and then, they mobilized to Enna, and attacked the Imperial Palace.

The Reyvateils weren't at fault here, because their acts were all committed under the mind control of Lakra. More precisely, this vile act was also used as a field test of the unique quality that the IPDs have of a [Shared Consciousness].

Once Batz got a hand on this information, he hurriedly ran off to Enna by himself. When he arrived, Arshe and Reisha were the only ones still alive, and then he centered all of his efforts in making out of the palace with both of them alive.

However, they were largely outnumbered, and also, were surrounded by fire. Batz had also asked previously his lovable junior, Leglius, the same one that together with Reisha and Arshe had brought so many precious times to him, to come to the palace with him.

However, Leglius denied that this could be even real.

[The Chancellor is trying to kill the Maiden? Impossible. And in the first place, the Enna Palace is a place in which only the Maiden and the members of the Maiden Chamber may enter, a holy place only for women. Doesn't that make it different from the standard palace of the Grand Bell?]

This was the decision that Leglius ended regretting the most in posterior years, and even them, it's an uneraseable scar that was left on his heart. Contrary to Leglius, Batz decided to ignore the orders of staying in standby that the knights received, and arrived to help Arshe and Reisha as fast as he could. He had fierce battles with the many IPDs, but his highest priority was to make sure that Reisha was all right.

While normally Reisha had closed off any possibility of Batz talking with her, seeing how he actually was doing his best to protect her was a more than enough action for Reisha to see him in a completely new light.

Batz would have risked all of himself many, many times just to protect Reisha. And once Reisha saw how much he was struggled from the back, and how his armor began getting dyed with blood, she decided that this was the man who she wanted to be with together forever.

He didn't have a good personality, and lacked survival qualities. However, he was a very honest man, and was said by everyone that his honesty extended as far as to being honest with himself. This was the reason why Reisha became able to completely trust in Batz.

A few hours later after Batz began fighting, Leglius finally received dispatch orders: to suppress and contain outbroken IPDs. Leglius noticed the bloodlust in the air.

And unlike the many occasions previous and posterior to this one, he decided that, only this time, he would let his own feelings take priority over his duty.

Just as the conspiracy of the revolted Grand Bell had planned, when Leglius finally arrived, it was too late: the palace was already engulfed in flames. Leglius began wandering within the fire, but despite his futile prayers, Arshe was nowhere to be found.

Then he suddenly heard the sound of an explosion.

It was very close... and seemed to be coming to where he was very fastly... Leglius began running forward, and he ran into Batz, who had just lunged forward expecting to finish off an IPD.

"Sir! Reisha!!"

"Oh! ...So the containment squad's finally here? That was faster than I expected"

"Containment squad? What are you talking about!?"

"Oh, you're not with the others? You ignored a direct order, didn't you? Heh heh, pretty good."

An smile surfaced in Batz' tired face, and he continued.

"Anyway... Lady Arshe has entrusted Lady Cloche to us. I'll protect this girl even if it costs me my life. But I don't want to fight you, nor I do want to get killed by you. So, let us go only this time."

He was speaking quickly, and he left Leglius behind. Then, without turning back, he raised a hand into the air.

"I'm glad I could meet you one last time. That was the only thing I was worried about. Goobye!"

Batz gave a final glance to Leglius, who was lost at words, and Reisha followed him.

"Reisha!! Where are you..."

"According to Lady Arshe's orders, we have to protect this girl. It's possible so we can't meet ever again. Thank you for everything you did for us. I'll never forget these fun times we shared. I will continue to watch over your efforts from the shadows. I hope you won't be burdened with the duty of capturing us..."

An extremely decided shine rose from Reisha's eyes.

"Goodbye..."

She gave him a final smile filled with nostalgia, and then, she began running after Batz. At that time, Leglius was unable to say anything. Leglius really regretted this, all because he did this for his own protection: the fact that he wasn't able to say "I'll protect her, too" to Reisha and Batz.

He couldn't think anything but that he had betrayed them because he didn't want to think about going with them, because his position was the most important to him.

Still, even if he was able to go to meet them, he wasn't able to say that to them, not even at the very last moment when they left the palace, which is what he regretted the most.

Leglius always heard in his mind the voice of Batz repeating the same things he told him on that day, when he decided that his position was the most important thing, as always, while for Batz, he had decided that going to save Reisha and Arshe was the most important thing to himself.

Yes, that is the difference between Batz and Leglius.

In the following days, the Grand Bell then began searching for the next Maiden, Cloche, while trying to do so in secret to not alert to the public the fact that the successor Maiden was missing. During that time, Leglius kept total silence about Reisha and Batz. While it didn't seem to do much, it actually was as if he was misguiding the searches, making them much more harder.

After three years, the Grand Bell finally interrupted the Maiden search. This greatly relived Leglius.

And on a certain day, two years later, the Grand Bell held a secret reunion, open only to its members.

-We are going to appoint an IPD child as the Maiden. Her age in within the falsifiable range.

-We will continue as planned, by introducing her to the people as [Lady Cloche has been finally found!].

-The meaning of the existence of this Maiden will be the [War Against the Goddess].

-We will manipulate Infel Phira, and use the Lost Technology weapon, [Replekia], against the Goddess!

And then, she made her debut. The 33th Maiden: Cloche Leythal Pastalie.

A girl that had an IPD outbreak before reaching the age of 8 years, and that was kidnapped from among the people, appointed as the Maiden. The daughter of Reisha and Batz.

Then, six more years passed since that day. Leglius was finally able to meet again with Reisha. In that day, the knight clad in red armor that had saved her wasn't alive anymore. Only Reisha remained, living alongside the girl that they had saved on that fateful day.

And Leglius too, had also gotten a wife and daughter since them, establishing a warm family, and he lost them, too.

"If you had come to save me back then, I would have ended marrying with you. But, of course, if that happened... It would meant that you wouldn't be able to get the status you have gotten now"

"That doesn't mean that I wished for status and honor more than anything. I simply was wishing to make reality Metafalica, the way in which we can allow everyone in this wolrd to live happily."

The Grand Bell regime leaded by the Pope and the Maiden lasted for a long time, around 400 years, until the middle of the 3700's. However, in 3751, when the Pope suddenly passed away, Alfman, taking advantage of the internal rebellions this event caused, did a Coup d'Etat. With it, he completely erased any remnants of the power of the Pope, and after concentrating all the powers on his hands, he proclaimed that he would make Metafalica a reality, and declared war to the Goddess.

On the other side, some years after this Coup, the people that opposed the power of the Neo Grand Bell gathered in a remote region of Enna, and founded the Sacred Army. The Sacred Army is an association of people that fights to restore the historical Pope regime, and advocate to [Coexist with the Goddess], while also disclosing to the public the inhuman acts the Grand Bell has committed. However, given that most of the people were tied, and already had lost hope, there were more people that despised the Goddess than people that wanted to coexist with her, and because of this, the public opinion leant more in favor of Alfman's war declaration. Because of that, the Sacred Army was in very unfavorable conditions, and its influence hadn't spread at all since the time in which it was founded.

Given that at the time the Sacred Army didn't represent a menace to the Grand Bell, they were simply ignored. However, a few years after the Grand Bell took this decision, the Sacred Army began to rapidly grow, and its influence began expanding. This was because a young man who was the last direct descendant of the Pope, Prince Targana, introduced himself before the masses of people. He was appeared as young man ready to become a leader, thanks to his innate elegance and charisma, and this gave a favorable wind to the Sacred Army.

The only thing that raised the name of the Sacred Army even more was the announcement that an [Envoy of the Goddess], addressed as such by Her, was sent to them. Then, Targana loudly declared that this was a sign of the Goddess giving their protection and blessing to them. Starting with Enna, the Rim was filled again with hope, and gradually, the Grand Bell had to change their plans towards the Sacred Army. Thus, the Sacred Army matured into a large organization.

Base of Operations: Historical Town of Enna

Enna is the very first town that was built in the Rim, and it was built by the people that had to move to the Rim because they opposed the Maiden, so even now, its inhabitants don't harbor any kind of good feelings to the Grand Bell and Pastalia, rather, they oppose them. The Sacred Army, which is the antagonist organization to the Grand Bell, started its operations here, thinking that this would be the best terrain for having their general headquarters. They decided that their headquarters would be located in the same place where the previous Maiden, Arshe, was killed: the Enna Palace Ruins, and it's in there were they conduct their operations.

The legitimate successor that inherited the blood of the Pope, Targana, appeared like a comet. He was born as a noble, but was raised among the townspeople. This was because when his grandfather, the previous Pope, passed away, Alfman killed the next in the line of succession to the Pope, which was his father, and Targana himself was also in mortal danger. Thanks to his nanny, Targana was barely saved from Alfman, and while he was growing, he was taught by his nanny how to be a good ruler, and about the lineage from which he descended.

Furthermore, Targana had a person he had recognized as a lifelong rival, and that was Croix, which afterwards became one of the best among the Grand Bell Knights. When they were children, and were studying fencing under the same master, Croix already had displayed remarkable abilities during their training sessions, and Targana always lost to him. The day just before Targana left the fencing schools, he and Croix had a final decisive battle, and Targana once again lost, which ended getting engraved in Targana's memories as an unsettled score.

After the people once again regained their hope in Metafalica, and the Sacred Army lost their support, Targana decided to challenge Croix to a final battle. He sensed that his part on this world was already finished, and thus, entrusted to Croix the duty of taking care of the rest.

Because of an incident, Chester lost his beloved one, and so, he was hired at the Grand Bell as an IPD investigator. However, once he knew the truth that the Grand Bell was hiding, he retired from it.

During these days in which he fell into disappointment and despair, he met a young man. He was called Targana, and was the legitimate successor to the Papal Family.

A certain day, when Chester was still young, Kanakana Pier was suddenly attacked by IPDs. The Grand Bell delayed their countermeasures, and in a very short time, Kanakana Pier was left in shambles.

At this time, Chester completely lost contact with the person he loved the most, Sonia, due to the confusion, and this left him a pretty deep sadness. Young and powerless, Chester reached his limits that day, and made a pledge to himself: he would exterminate all the IPDs in this world. And so, doing so that other towns or villages didn't suffer this same fate, he would also reorganize the sloppy knights that the Grand Bell had.

Chester studied as hard as he could, and after some time, he was recognized as great researcher. And granting his wish, which was pretty much breaking a 1-in-100 possibility, he was bestowed the Meta-Plate. Thus, he was hired by the Grand Bell.

During his time working in the Grand Bell, Chester suddenly noticed one day that all the other researchers were gasping at the sight of this: the raw figures of the IPD outbreak rates had a dramatic rise, and it was beginning to become a rumor that once an IPD had an outbreak, she couldn't be saved. However, even these flying birds crashed into the floor as soon as Chester discovered the truth behind this. That was that the responsible of the outbreaks was no other one than the Grand Bell itself, the same outbreak increase that was the cause of Sonia's disappearance.

He also learned that because of his boss, Loude, which was part of the top brass of the Grand Bell, Sonia was transmigrated into the will of Infel Phira, and was now partly in a state of apparent death. Furthermore, he found out that the IPD attack in Kanakana Pier was actually caused by Loude in the first place: he only made it look like an IPD outbreak, it was a simple camouflage.

Chester received an enormous shock from this, and left the Grand Bell. To destroy them, by having committed the unforgivable and inhuman acts towards his hometown, and his lover.

He thought that making enemies out from the powerful Grand Bell in this way would be stupid, but as a super-great researcher that had took part even in some of the top-secret procedures of the Grand Bell, he though this was his moral duty.

He made sure that the increase of the innocent IPDs was all the doing of the Grand Bell, and that they were doing these inhuman acts as preparations for defeating the Goddess.

After he left the Grand Bell, Chester began declaring the Grand Bell as inhuman before all the Pastalia people. However, almost no one paid attention to it, and dismissed him as a traitor to the nation.

In a short time, Chester noticed that his actions were giving off any results, and disappointed, he left Pastalia.

He settled into the little town of Enna, in the Rim. Despite its population not being very large, he went there, expecting that the Grand Bell didn't have a huge influence in it.

And it was in there that things began going well for him. A certain day, an old lady and a young man came to his house. The man was called Targana, and he was the genuine crown prince, who had to escape from Alfman's regime.

The old lady told him the truth: the current regime was no more than pure falsehood who had at the top someone that didn't belong to the Papal Family, and the current Maiden was too a fake that didn't descend from any of the previous Maidens. And the true successor to the throne of Metafalss was just... before his eyes.

Then he heard about the Coup d'Etat that happened around ten years ago, and learned about the true reason why the current regime was also the culprit behind the razing of the Enna Palace. At that time, the previous Maiden, Arshe, was killed, and her daughter, Cloche, disappeared. The girl they knew as Cloche right now wasn't the Cloche that disappeared on that fateful day.

Chester never had imagined that the violent methods used by the Grand Bell reached that extent.

Chester welcomed Targana, and they both founded the Sacred Army. Their activities expanded from the own center of the Rim, and they were set into steadily becoming the army we can see now. However, their opponent was the Grand Bell, which had seized all of the powers in Metafalss, and the gap between their powers was so evident, that Alfman didn't even bother to pay attention to them.

This could be thought of as blessing in disguise. Because, if the Grand Bell had attacked them with all the power of their army at this time, there's no mistake that the Sacred Army would have been subjugated. However, given that their power was still so low, both Targana and Chester had more that enough time to build up and fortify their position.

Various years, month, and days passed since then... And on a certain day, an strange blue wolf came to the hideout of the Sacred Army. He introduced himself as an Envoy of the Goddess, and he told them that he could give them power.

The non-human shape of said envoy left a very strong impression on Targana, deepening his belief that they were applying the true justice, but Chester wasn't totally convinced by this. However, there is no mistake that if it was true, the Envoy would be a tremendous asset to them. And to verify if he was telling the truth, he asked a single request to the Envoy of the Goddess.

Chester asked him to "Deliver this letter to a girl called Lakra, who is in a chamber in the depths of the Grand Bell Palace".

The contents of the letter were things that would have put the Grand Bell into a state of emergency if they were found out, and Chester supposed that if the Envoy was actually an spy from the Grand Bell, he wouldn't have any possibility of having success in this.

However, he still wrote the letter, which, according to what was planned, was delivered successfully.

Then, Lakra took the control of various IPDs, and made them attack the Rakshek Resort, cornering Maiden Cloche, who was in the middle of her vacations. Once Chester and the others heard about the situation that was developing far from Enna, where they were, and he evaluated that situation with his own eyes, he felt that this attack was pretty clear signal.

Shun was unmistakably the true Envoy of the Goddess. The Sacred Army had gotten in their hands an unbeatable trump card.

However, in exchange for his support, Shun demanded a single conditions. That is, in exchange for his cooperation, they would have to implement Hibernation. This was an Hymmnos that was inherited within the Grand Bell for generations, as part of the accomplishment of the Pact with the Goddess they made, and was called the Song that would save the people. Chester accepted this condition immediately, and then, the rest of the Sacred Army agreed with the idea.

And thus, the Sacred Army received the divine protection of the Goddess, and so, they managed to find soon after these events the true Maiden that Received the Divine Protection of the Goddess.

However, the truth about this, is that Chester didn't care at all about politics or the government: the main reason why he started this rebellion was because of his "personal feelings". This was in vengeance for the destruction of Kanakana Pier, and for what happened to Lakra (Sonia).

That is, while his goals were to throw down the current government and rescue Lakra, he didn't care at all how the following government would be, as he didn't have any kind of interest in the formation of an ideal government.

However, the goal he had when he introduced Luca before the eyes of the people during Cloche's Birthday Festival was to gain a foothold for the new government, so he still had a very strong intention of causing the downfall of the current government. While he looks calm and collected in the outside, he was no more than person controlled by his own feelings in the inside.

Pastalia, the capital city of Metafalss. The Grand Bell Hall is the stronghold where all of the government institutions are located, and besides ruling this city, they are called the own core of this region.

Pastalia as we know it was founded during the 3000's, and was made as a city that covered the top of the Tower, which was abandoned in the middle of its construction. Given that there are many cavities in the external surface of the Tower, it was easy to collect the water from the rain and gather it into lakes. These lakes then multiplied, and turned into things comparable to terraced fields because of the height at which they are planted, and thanks to the way the water flows, there are countless waterfalls in its surface. In the areas closest to the lakes, many thick trees sprouted, and thanks to the many facilities in which the fallen water is pumped, there is a permanent water cycle between the city and the lakes.

Because of this, Pastalia has an abundance of perennial water resources, and it's always moistened by them. Because of the great number of remodelations that have been done throughout all the city, it has an special, yet pretty complicated structural arrangement. The uppermost level has many elevators for public usage, which are used like railroads for moving vertically from a point of the city to other.

As an effect of the urban areas looking like a wreath spiraling around the gigantic tower, having this vertical form has given Pastalia a pretty unique appearance.

Because of that, many elevators were built in the inner zones of Pastalia. The structure built in the uppermost zone is the Palace of the Grand Bell, and as you can guess, the altitude at which a residential zone is located is a direct indicator of the life style its inhabitants have.

About the Food

While Pastalia has water in abundance, unfortunately, the same cannot be said about the food. This is precisely the reason why they had to restrict the number of immigrants from the Rim. Given that the food is given through a distribution system, free to the bearers of a Meta-Plate or a Nero-Plate, there is no starving people.

However, the food they receive is no more than the bare minimum to continue alive, and eating beyond than that is a luxury only limited to the wealthier classes.

Because of this, the people are limited to eating only two meals per day: breakfast and dinner, and between both of them, they eat the local specialty as dessert: the Kururuku Dango Bar, which eaten together with fruit juice is something that the people always look forward to do.

This is made by skewering some candies made out from Kururuku Fruits. These are regular sweets eaten by the children of Pastalia since they are very young, and given that each mother has her own tastes, and these sweets are made at home, the shape of the face can vary from a house to other.

While Metafalss planned its education system on the same line as the other regions, theirs had the difference of having the Legends of Metafalica as its fundamental basis.

They were taught that they, at some point, they would have to create their ideal land with their own hands, which was based on the following words: [The transient land will be lost, and then, the paradise we will have created by ourselves will be born. The people have to prepare for when that time comes], which is base of the Legends of Metafalica, which were the predictions and realizations about the Divine Land that the First Pope and ancient great Sage, Jaza, told the people around 700 years ago. Also, it was said that when the land was born, it would be an overly abundant world that could never be compared with the current one. The people of Pastalia believed these legends, and supported the Maiden as the one that was supposed to create the land. That was the final hope that the inhabitants of this dead land had, and the only reason why they still had the energy to continue living in these difficult days.

On the other hand, other teachings that were said to be remnants from what the Sages regime from the Metafalss of the First Era taught, were passed down with the words [You have to give before receiving], which were also very devotedly taught. While it was bare minimum of moral education and respect that the people should show to each other, it had a much weaker influence compared to the Legends of Metafalica. The people thought that if they seriously believed in these teachings, this world would surely head towards a prosperous future, much more prosperous than the world of the First Era, but that wasn't actually going to become reality to that point either.

Pastalia isn't built over the surface of the land, rather, it was built at the top of the Tower, so we could call it a floating city of sorts. It has an stable base because it's supported by 32 thick pillars that are spread around the own center of the Tower. These pillars are called the Charge Piles, and while they are the lifeline that supports and maintains Pastalia, they are also known as a feature of its scenery. The Charge Piles are at the same time constructed between many pontoon bridges, and there are many frames running horizontales between them, giving a grid-like shape to the inner structure of the Tower.

The buildings and the streets of Pastalia were formed with the grid that was made from the bridges and frames, which expanded with the passing of time. However, given that the city was built upon the tip of a Tower, it has a limit on how much it can expand horizontally, so the main expansion means the city has is building vertically. As an effect of that, the uppermost area is the newest and most beautiful of the city, inhabited by the most wealthy citizens, while the lowermost areas are the oldest ones, inhabited by the poorest citizens.

An Altar located in the topmost floor of the Grand Bell Palace. A long time ago, this was called the place where the Maidens Infel and Nenesha would pray and sing to make Metafalica a reality, and to reproduce their wishes, a gigantic statue of both of them standing back to back was built.

However, given that the Maiden of Mio was rendered as a taboo being by the current Grand Bell, a long time ago, the altar of the Hill of Metafalica was sealed off, because it showed evidence that two Maidens once existed over this land.

Located in the lower part of the Public Airport, this is the widest residential area in Pastalia, and also, it's where Croix's house is located. It's an standard two-storied family house made out from wood, and it's normally owned by lower-class families. While Croix and Cocona live here together, the house is comfortable enough for both of them.

This is the oldest area of Pastalia, and as such, the very first one that was built in it. Given that the rest of the city was built upon this area, it's now located at the lowermost zones of Pastalia. For the most part, its residential zones have slowly turned into ruins because of the abandonment, and there are many places where the houses collapsed into rubble. It isn't officially recognized by the government as an habitable zone, yet the people still live in it. It's mostly inhabited by people that don't carry any of the two Plates, and people that for any reasons cannot appear in public.

However, the ones that make up the biggest part of its population are Reyvateils that awakened as IPDs, and many of the ones that escaped from the containment facilities of the Grand Bell live here.

This is the business district that extends from the middle to the lower zones of Pastalia. However, the lower zone has become a relaxation area, so it's always a quite crowded zone. Given that this is the area where most of the people are gathered, the Grand Bell put an enormous monitor in the main part of its streets, that they can hear the speeches given by the Maiden whenever they are made, so as you can notice, it's even more crowded during these times. Also, thanks to being located in the central areas of Pastalia, it's very close to the stations of the knights and the special economic zone [Star City], which makes the people traffic between these areas very intense. Also, the weapon provider for the Grand Bell and its knights, the [Crane Shop Central Office], is located too within this are. And the house in which Croix and Cocona live is also located in one of the streets of Pastalia City.

Because Metafalss recognizes the Reyvateils as normal citizens too, the Dive Shops are regarded as extremely important facilities. The Pastalia Dive Shop is located in one of the Pastalia City streets, and its current shopkeeper is Lelen, from the Teru Tribe (all the Dive Shops in this land are managed by Terus). Given that the interior of the shop is filled to the brim with the machinery and equipment used for the Dives, it gives both a dim and a doubtful impression to its visitors. By the way, despite the fact that Luca's profession, Dive Therapy, is prohibited in Pastalia, that was because of the crimes that were committed by the abuse of this technique a long time ago. However, there aren't friendly tendencies towards it here.

Pastalia is a gigantic floating city. That is, the area public gathering areas are all only supported by a single metal plate: most areas don't have more than that metal plate between them and the sky, and Pastalia City is also one of these places. If you looked down from this place, you would see the lower areas, which are inhabited by the poorer people, spreading before your eyes.

A weapon shop located in Pastalia City. They are weapon providers for the Grand Bell Knights, and as such, it has a pretty prosperous business. The shop clerk Cynthia is always coming up with new ideas for making weapons, and given that Croix frequently visits this store too, Cynthia has created a weapon series for Croix's exclusive use, called the [CynCro Brand].

This park was created by Maiden Cloche very recently, to make true her wishes of [wanting a place where the people of Pastalia can feel closer, even if it's only a little, to being in Metafalica]. This place is located pretty close to the gigantic stone statue and waterfalls that have made Pastalia famous, and thanks to the natural things that are in there, such as the waterfalls and the trees, it's easy to imagine how Metafalica would be. It's a popular sightseeing location in Pastalia. It's a pretty popular place to take a drink, and it's easy to always see a lot of couples in this place. Also, the Pepens, which are enigmatic creatures that can speak the human language, have settled in this area, and act very friendly and courteously to the tourists. Because of that, it's a popular business to sell [Pepenscuits], the biscuits for feeding the Pepens, here.

The transports used by the people of Pastalia are mainly the Rotating Train and the Elevators. The Rotating Train is a vehicle that has the special characteristic of having a cycling course that goes around the external circumference of the Tower, and it works by using the energy it receives from the Water Mill. On the other hands, the elevators can stop at any given floor, and they allow to instantly move from a zone to other of Pastalia almost instantly, thanks to their great speed. The fastest elevators are mainly located in the inner zones of the Tower, and are mostly used by the Grand Bell personnel, so the normal citizens can't ride them. Other people have other transportation means, which are airships that can carry ten people at most and fly in a circle around the city, called Airbuses. However, given that the routes used by the Airbuses only cover the outskirts of Pastalia, their usefulness is pretty limited in comparison to the Elevators. Also, there is an special Rotating Train course called the [Spiral], which covers a pretty wide route. It goes from the Airports to the Festival Plaza, slowly ascending through the city in a circular fashion, and it has been known as a sightseeing route since many years ago.

These are small airships that fly around Pastalia. Given that they can take off and land vertically, they can arrive and depart from very narrow places. However, given that their defects are that their fees are somewhat high, and that they can't take off or land in the inner zones of the Tower, not many people from the lower classes use them.

These are the Elevators that were built in the inner zones of the city. They are used for both short and long-distance travels, and from moving passengers to luggage from a part of Pastalia to other, so they have many uses, despite many of them being out of order because of being so old. By the way, there is also a gigantic elevator hall from where many elevators leading to the inside of the Grand Bell Palace can be taken, called Termina.

Given that the transit between the Rim and Pastalia was limited during many years, it was only during recent years that it became popular to travel between both areas. In the first place, given that the Rim and Pastalia aren't in adjoining lands, the people would have to rely on the courses taken by the airships whenever they wish to move from one place to other, and would overload them. Because of this, in this world where the land does not exist, and where you can see the Sea of Death spreading under your feet if you look down, the airship technology development had to reach an awakening point, making possible for the travel methods to become popular among the people. However, the transit towards is Pastalia is still regulated, so no many people use the airships to go there. In the current times, the normal citizens of Metafalss are able to be passengers only in a route that connects Pastalia to Rakshek. On the other hand, the movement of cargo is much more lively than the movement of passengers, and because of this, there is also an special long-distance route that allows cargo to be directly shipped between Pastalia and Enna.

◆Names of the Routes

●Course of the Beautifully Shining Star

リムからパスタリアに夢を抱いて渡航する人
が多いため、このような名称で呼ばれる。

This is the passenger course that connects Rakshek and Pastalia. Because for many people the idea of going to Pastalia from the Rim is a voyage possible only in dreams, it's called this.

●Course of the Lively Earth and Heavens

エナーパスタリアを結ぶ貨物用の航路。
資材に乏しいパスタリアにとって、生命線と
もいえる重要な航路である。

This is the cargo course that connects Enna to Pastalia. Given that the raw materials are so scarce in Pastalia, this course has become so important to Pastalia that it's even called a lifeline to it.

Metafalss is made up from a Tower, three Rings, and one horizontal Ring. This last one is called the [Rim]. The widest parts of it were used to build towns and cities, while the narrower ones where employed only for the construction of the tracks that connect the town, and upon this Ring is where the people make their lives. The people from the Rim come from different cultural backgrounds, since its first inhabitants where the people that were drove out from Pastalia by the First Maiden, Selena, to keep the public order: the remnants of the Metafalica Radicals, the members of the Elemia control layer, and later on, the Elemians that escaped from Pastalia after they were defeated by Maiden Illusha in the Neo Elemia War, and they are the main kinds of people that make up its population. However, the Rim wasn't planned to be a place inhabited by people. There are no actual places where the water can filter and end deposited because there is almost no soil, and the metal surface it's uncovered in almost all places, with only a handful of soil at some parts. However, despite being so sterile, this land has nurtured the lives of the people for more than 700 years, and thanks to their great efforts, they somehow managed to become the people that currently inhabits the Rim. Thanks to the organization of their irrigation equipments, and the spreading of water across all of the Rim, they managed even to grow a extremely thick forest with only a little of water. Furthermore, they were even able to cultivate parts of the land thanks to this.

The narrow horizontal land, which seems to completely surround the Tower, is the Rim. There are tracks connecting most of its areas to each other, and it has become an extremely important mean of transportation for the people. However, this doesn't mean that they cover the entirety of the Rim, because one of its sections collapsed, and currently is an area that can't be crossed.

Unlike Pastalia, whose people is always worrying about the food shortage, they always had a guaranteed water supply, which in the Rim has always been a problem . Of course, while this doesn't mean that the food is very abundant, at least it doesn't suffer from a serious shortage compared to the one water has. Currently, the [Lere Water Reservoir] is the only water storage area, from which the water is distributed across all the Rim. Naturally, given that the farther the soil is from the Lere Reservoir the less water they will receive, the people naturally were restricted to settle down in the places closest to it (that going towards and back to the Reservoir only takes 30 minutes). Given that there is no soil in the Rim, the agriculture is not very prosperous. However, the people still made cultivating fields to guarantee their alimentation, focusing mostly in the cultivation of cereals called Kururuku, which don't require much water to be cultivated. Particularly the cultivation of the soil of Mint Block is like this, given that the land is so sterile that nothing else can be cultivated over there, so the residents then take the train towards Rakshek, and sell Kururuku in there to be able to buy food.

The Lere Water Reservoir

リムに住む全住人、78万人の命をつなぐ水瓶。リムで
唯一の水源地であり、すべての水はここから供給されて
いるが、少し雨量が減るとすぐに渇水してしまう。

This is the water reservoir to which the lives of the entirety of the population of the Rim: 780,000 people, are tied. This is the only water source in the Rim, and given that all the water for its people is distributed from here, if the precipitation rates decrease even a little, there will be a severe water shortage.

About the Education

 リムには統一された組織による公的教育機関 は存在していない。それでも、住民による最低限 の教育はされている。パスタリアと同じく、メタフ ァリカ伝説と貢献論は教えられているが、それ以 上は就学率が極端に減。日々の暮らしに追わ れるリムにおいては、たとえ子供たちであっても生 活のために働かざるをえない環境なのである。

There doesn't exist an actual public education system in the Rim. However, their children do receive a minimum of education, imparted by the own citizens. Similarly to Pastalia, the Legends of Metafalica and the moral precepts are taught in there, but besides from that, the school attendance rate is still extremely low. Because the Rim is place where everyone labors so hard to continue living day after day, even the children are forced to work for their lives in this hard environment.

未来なら、学校に行っているべき年齢である沙亜紗。病に
倒れて入院している祖母に代わってよろづ屋を経営している
が、時間的にも、経済的にも学校に行く余裕がないようだ。

In the future, maybe Sasha would be able to go to school, like children of her age are supposed to. However, given that her grandmother collapsed from a disease and was sent to the hospital, she had to take care of the shop on her stead, and because of this, Sasha doesn't have any time, nor she is in the economical position she would need to be able to attend school.

The diameter of the Rim is of 4700 Stons (14.1KM), but because of having an irregular width, there are parts where it is very wide, and others where it is very narrow. The widest portion is of around 200 Stons wide, while the narrowest one is of around 5 Stons, so here you can see how much they can vary. By the way, the Rim is made up from seven parts joined together, and during emergencies, these parts can be detached from it (Purging).

The Transports in the Rim

All the zones of the Rim are intercommunicated thanks to a long-distance railroad track called the [Souffle Axis]. Given that the it more or less covers the entirety of the crescent moon-shaped Rim, it's a transportation facility that truly makes the lives of the people easier. Its routes are double tracks that cover all the way from Rakshek to Enna, while the other zones are all single tracks. While its normal speed is somewhat slow, it can also be prepared for fast travel. By the way, while there is a section of the tracks that cover the route between Mint Block and Kanakana Pier, it was suddenly closed off during the 3400's.

an empty space where the people cannot live. Because of this, naturally 
there aren't any constructions in it, and it's an undeveloped area.

When the seven parts that make up the Rim were made, it was prepared in 
a way that each part was maintained by its own [Lift Generator]. It's thanks 
to the mechanisms that the Rim can continue keep itself afloat over the 
Sea of Death.
The lines that separate the sections from each other are called [Purge Lines],
and like their name says, these are the boundary lines for the purge of 
each area. By the way, while each area has names such as [B-Nnoi Area], 
currently there is no one in the rim that still knows about them. These 
names were used initially only by Frelia, and later on were used only by 
the people closest to her, because they needed names to design and divide 
each part.

The Souffle Axis Trains

The trains are composed of two wagons. The front part is special because it is equipped with the same item that is used by the airships to fly: the Rotatory Flipper. However, its speed doesn't go beyond the 20~30 KM/H range.

The History of the Souffle Axis

察し、人々の苦境を見て取ったスフレは、リムを
縦断する鉄道の敷設を提案した。

The Souffle Axis was designed during the reign of the 15th Maiden, Souffle, and built by the 16th Maiden, who was Souffle's daughter: Raksha. At that time, there weren't any kind of communication routes in the Rim, and the only thing that allowed to see the direction in which one was going was the towering Conductor Activator. For the people, to cross the Rim from a tip to the other on foot was extremely hard, and because of that, they didn't expand their settlements beyond the areas near to the Lere Water Reservoir. When she came to observe the Rim by herself, Souffle perceived how terrible where the life conditions for the people, and proposed to build a railroad track that crossed through the entire Rim.

Souffle and Raksha, mother and daughter, had set their sights in activating and improving the life in the Rim, and because of this, they appealed for the construction of the railroad track at the Grand Bell. However, the regime that governed at the time in the heart of Pastalia didn't even think about spending even a little dime of the budget they had because of the animosity they had towards the Rim, and both of them stirred a great unrest in the Grand Bell because of this. Despite this, Souffle and Raksha still wished for the happiness of the many that lived in the Rim, and finally managed to make the construction of the Souffle Axis a reality. Also, the two Maidens also poured their blood into making possible the commerce and trade between Pastalia and the Rim, and afterwards, they even managed to normalize the relations between both parts. Even now, the two maidens known as Souffle and Raksha are still remembered by the people that live in the Rim as heroines.

The Souffle Axis and the name of the city of Rakshek were named in honor to the two Maidens that were the biggest benefactors in the development of the Rim. Currently, there is a stone statue of Raksha, who inaugurated the Souffle Axis, in the Axis Courtyard in Rakshek.

This place was built in an area located at the very edge of the Rim. There once was an station that acted as the last stop for the Souffle Axis, but around 300 years, it was suddenly closed off. Kanakana Pier was once inhabited by an special race who knew all the secrets of Infel Phira, the sealed People of Mio, and their three descendants: Amarie, Chester, and Sonia, all have Kanakana Pier as their birthplace. Furthermore, Kanakana Pier was annihilated by the attack of outbroken IPDs in 3754 AD, and now, it has become only a group of ruins.

Kanakana Pier was annihilated by the attack of outbroken IPDs that took place in 3754 AD. The whole area has become a group of ruins, and it isn't possible to find any survivors of the People of Mio that used to live here anymore.

Kanakana Pier once was the place where the group called the People of Mio lived. They originally were a group of engineers that had the technology necessary for controlling Infel Phira, moved to this area 400 years ago, and was almost entirely composed of Terus and IPDs, so this land was eventually inhabited by the offsprings of both kinds of people. Because their abilities were deemed as a threat by the Goddess, they were forced by Her to move and seclude themselves here, and were forbidden from having any kind of contact with the outside world. From that time, a long time passed, and eventually, the people forgot about the existence of Infel Phira and the Maiden of Mio. However, the People of Mio still kept themselves hidden from everyone. If we had to say the truth, it was obvious that they were being manipulated by the Goddess. However, Alfman of the Grand Bell, who learned about the existence of the People of Mio, attacked Kanakana Pier on 3754 AD under the pretense of an IPD outbreak, just to obtain the secrets of Infel Phira. The people of Mio was almost completely wiped out, and the extremely few survivors were abducted by the Grand Bell. Just a few of them managed to successfully escape from this terrible incident.

This is place is located beyond Mint Block, and it's a prairie located at the very border of the Rim. While in a relatively small scale, there are trees growing very think in this area, and it's pretty abundant as a natural environment. However, the residents of Mint Block couldn't come to live here because the Souffle Axis station in here was closed off, and practically no one comes to this area. If anyone tried to enter this area from the outside, they would simply get lost as they continue walking in circles over the same place. This is because the Terus put an special kind of magic that confuses the senses as a mean of keeping all the outsiders out from Kanakana Pier, and for the people that don't know this, it's impossible to continue advacing. Despite the Dreamy Fields having an atmosphere that makes them worthy of receiving the name of "Fields of the Lost", the children from the neighboring areas have taken a like to it as a place for playing. Even Croix and Targana have left many memories of their childhoods in this land.

The Dreamy Fields have an unique railroad track made by the Terus, which goes on until it reaches Kanakana Pier, and that can be crossed only by the Terutrain. However, only the Terus can use it, so it's very hard for the normal humans to even perceive its existence.

This is the former Dreamy Fields station, which was even an stop in the Souffle Axis a long time ago. In the current times, the only the Terutrain seldom stops in this area, and only if a Teru person rings an special bell.

This is the train that was made through the magic of the Terus, and it has an appearance that would make anyone think that it actually is a living creature. In some rare occasions, the residents of Mint Block have witnessed the Terutrain, and have called it a Phantom Train.

Relatively speaking, this the land that was pioneereed the most recently in the Rim. Around 3357 AD, a group of passionate Metafalica believers embraced the wish of creating their paradise with their own hands, and came to this land. In a way or other, thanks to their great efforts, the people became able to live in this land, and while they didn't want to develop this place at all, it couldn't be said that they had success in that last part. However, even now, Mint Block is inhabited by the descendants of these pioneers, and they love their land a lot.

You can see a completely exposed and desolate land spreading to the horizon. While the area around the station is recognized as a town, there isn't any sort of greenness visible in the town at all, so it's pretty crude as a place.

A deep forest located in the neighboring areas to Mint Block. Because of its sheer size, this forest is the biggest one in the Rim, and in a world where the plants are unable to spread their roots within the soil, this the only place with so many plants and large trees. This forest was born from the small Heart of the Land that was created from the experimental Hymmnos, Metafalica-Alpha, that Infel and Nenesha sung a long time ago. Many enthusiastic believers of Metafalica also participated in this experiment, which would later on become the founders of Mint Block. And the Heart of the Land that gave life to this forest was later on as the subject of a famous legend within Mint Block, called the [Guardian of Mikry].

This is an small store located in a part of the Rim that has less than 3 Stons (1 Ston = approx. 3 meter) of width, and it's was chosen as one of the disembarking points for the Souffle Axis trains. The reason behind an station being built in this place is unknown, but there are always an small number of passenger getting off here. The actual name of this store, is the [Nyanya Store]. While the exterior of the store looks extremely worn out, and many people among the inhabitants of Rakshek and the users of the Souffle Axis think that it's an abandoned house, it still keeps its business open.

As a merchant town that was built over the revealed skeleton of a destroyed part of the Rim, it has a complicated multi-layer structure. Also, as the only entryway used to go from the Rim to Pastalia, the town is always crowded with travelers and merchants. Still, there isn't only the Airport, but also, the double-rail Souffle Axis, and furthemore, even a branch office of the Grand Bell, and the Rakshek Citizen Association, which handles the administration of everything on the Rim, are also located here, making Rakshek the own heart of the Rim.

This is a view of how complicated are the streets of Rakshek. You can see the airships that come to and leave the neighboring airport, and its main characteristic is the Souffle Axis going through the center of the city. Despite the streets being so narrow, there are many signs put in them, and by seeing how bustling it is, you should be able to feel that it's a pretty active trade city.

A station of the Souffle Axis that was built between Rakshek and Mint Block. Given that many of the goods that come from Pastalia first arrive at the Rim here, this were all the providers in Metafalss gather. This place is located between the Port No. 2, which is used only for transporting raw material, and the Airport of the New World, used by the passenger, making it play a very active role in the distribution of goods and general economy of Metafalss, and thus, many merchants of Mint Block and Enna come here to replenish stock. In contrast to the administrative side that we can see on Rakshek Town, this place is called the heart of the economy in the Rim.

This is nearest station in Rakshek to the airport. Around the time in which Rakshek evolved into a city from a raw material storehouse, the demands for airships that could transport passengers instead of merchandise increased, and finally, an airport was built exclusively for them. This airport was called the Airport of the New World, and later on, the airports called Port II and Port III were established, which is the total that currently exists. There is a pedestrian bridge that crosses from the station to the airport, and looking at the part below it, you should be able to see the airships preparing to depart. It's a magnificent scenery, and many people just get down on this station to see the airships taking off and landing. However, this isn't an express station. Because of this, most people usually get off at the Kurure St., #1 station, and then use other means of transport to reach the airport. This is because at this distance, it's much faster to reach the airport on foot that to wait for the Axis Train.

This is the newest airport, built in the outskirts of Rakshek. There is also an station for the Axis Train here, which was also completed very recently. When the airport was still being built, it wasn't yet decided if it was going to become an airport for merchandise, or for people. Because of this, it was decided that it would be better to built it planned for both uses, and that is why currently it serves a double purpose, which can be seen now.

This station was built pretty close to the Lere Water Reservoir, the only source of water in the Rim. While there aren't many passengers getting down here, since this is the place from which the water that maintains the lives of everyone in the Rim is distributed, everyday the people charged with its maintenance come, even if they can't satisfy their own water needs. You can guess that this is station is extremely important, as it also maintains the life of the people.

An station built halfway on the route between Rakshek and Enna, located in a plateau where the height greatly varies. The mist softly lowers over this area, and because you can also see the Sea of Death under this place, it was that this place received the name of "Pier of Amassed Clouds" ("Clouds' Wharf"). The central part of this place is marked by a great tower called the Conductor Activator, which actually also doubles as the mark that distinguishes right and left in the Rim. Before the Souffle Axis station was built here, it was extremely hard for the people to reach this place, but once the construction began approaching the area, the constructors eventually deviated the route because they were climbing the area at the same time, until finally the route of the Axis ended passing through this point.

The great white construction is the Conductor Activator. This is why the underground of the Clouds' Wharf has become an entranceway of sorts for it.

This is the most ancient town in the Rim, and a long time ago, it even was the center of the administration of the Rim. Also, the HQ of the Sacred Army, the Enna Palace, like its name suggest, it's located here too. Because it was built upon a solid based, it has never suffered from great-scaled collapses or earthquakes from the hundreds of years it has existed, so there are still a great number of ancient buildings here.

Enna has even now the scenery of a very ancient town. The liveliness of this town can be on the many stands that are lined up in the central Market Street, and standing over everything else, we can even see the remains of the gigantic Enna Palace, which is what makes famous the scenery of Enna.

Before the people settled down in the Rim, this place was established as an airport for the ships that brought soil and sand from the mountains in the outer areas. Even now it keeps active, since there are still ships carrying back to the Rim these materials. As the only port that can be seen from the outside world, it also served as the entrance way for the foreigners that came to Metafalss.

When the people established in the Rim, this area was the field cultivable field they pioneered. And even if now there are more prominent cultivable areas in the Rim, many of the peasants still work at this field. Its main products are Kururuku and Karikari, which are crops that can be easily brought up in arid regions because they don't need much water to be raised. By the way, when EXEC_VIENA/. was sung during the game, Frelia was so weakened, that she didn't have Symphonic Power for anything else beyond crafting the Song. Because of this, it was decided that to reduce the strain on her, this was one of the areas in the Rim that would need to be Purged.

This is the scenery of the B-Ixa Area seen from the Newfield Gorge. The building we can see here with plants growing all over it is the Cat Mansion. Each Area has a Lift Generator to maintain itself from falling into the Sea of Death, so each Area is more or less independent of the others. However, when it came the time to Purge the Areas, both the B-Vira Area and the B-Ixa Area collapsed, and the constructions that were in this area also suffered that same fate.

A borderland station of the Souffle Axis, but usually, no one gets off at this station. There is only an old mansion built near the station, which is why the station is named after it. The Mansion has an eerie air floating all around it, and even though no one lives in there anymore, no one dares to approach it. A long time ago it used to be called a research establishment of sorts, but now is no more than an abandoned house. By the way, the areas beyond the Cat Mansion were marked as restricted areas of the Grand Bell, and with the exception of the Grand Bell personnel, no passengers are allowed beyond this area.

The place called the Promised Hill is located at the base of the gigantic Lens, located at the very end of the Rim, and it's also the last station of the Souffle Axis. Because the way here is in a single track, if a train reaches this area, it has to go in reverse to go back. The Promised Hill is the place that serves as the tombs for all the Maidens from the past eras, but currently, no one with the exception of the Grand Bell personnel comes here. The Lens that towers over the summit of the Hill used to shine a long time ago, whenever Frelia was in her duty of creating the Second Tower using it and the Conductor Vision, but now, these functions don't work anymore.

The Promised Hill

太古の遺跡で、現代では歴代の御子を葬る墓所とな
っている。最深部の壁にはヒュムノス語による封印
が施されており、その奥に400年前の御子であるイ
ンフェルとネネシャが封じられた秘密の部屋がある。

As ruins from very ancient times, in the current times it has become the burial place for all the generations of Maidens. The walls at the deepest areas have been sealed off with spells in Hymmnos Language, and within them, the secret burial chamber of the Maidens from 400 years ago, Infel and Nenesha, was sealed in.
