A Reyvateil girl created by the Archia Think Tank. She is a new kind called a γ-Sublimate, and she was born with an important mission that would cause large repercussions throughout the world.

She has an extremely warm personality, and despises fighting to the extreme. While she is the most gentle and honest person ever, she is also quite an airhead, pretty much having quite a disconnect in how others act and talk around her. Her hobby is creating stories, but since her creations have a sense that flies far beyond the comprehension of others, they are quite unique.

She was taken away from the Archia Think Tank by a researcher called Kiraha, and after they escaped, she spent a god part of her life as a teacher in the Ougai Memorial Preschool, but had to run away to the Blue Canyon Hamlet when she was discovered by the Think Tank. It was there that she met Aoto.

She was the very first character we started designing, but also was the last one we completed. While we wanted to make her wear an smock due to her job being a preschool teacher, this ended causing quite a lot of problems to Nagi-san... but as a result of this, we were very satisfied when we received the final draft for her divine design.

Saki is a γ-Sublimate, an special Reyvateil type developed by the Archia Think Tank to fulfill an specific purpose. While she is pretty much the same as a Pureblooded β-type, because the γ-Sublimates are created with an special procedure, Saki possesses abilities that no other existing Reyvateil has.

Saki was charged with a mission: tranquilizing the [Antibody Brain], the central existence to the Antibodies that the humans deem as a threat, by singing the Hymmnos [EXEC_FLIP_ARPHAGE/.]. Saki herself accomplishes the function of a vaccine for the Antibody Brain, so she will neutralize and eliminate it. However, no one knows what will happen to Saki's body once this process is executed, and in the worst of cases she could disappear together with the Antibody Brain. However, Saki has accepted this duty, and has a hard determination to save mankind from this crisis, no matter if this results in her own annihilation.

Because she lost a part of her memories due to the abuse of the [Miracles] (later mentioned), when she finally arrived at the Blue Canyon Hamlet, she had already forgotten what was her mission. However, after she regained her memories, she decidedly went to Moocheriel to confront the Antibody Brain. However, since she didn't notice that neutralizing the Antibody Brain would also cause the annihilation of her friend Finnel, she accepted that Aoto had interrupted the execution of the Song.

A γ-Sublimate is created through the following process: creating a synthesized copy of the feelings of the Planet Ar Ciel, obtained from analyzing data obtained from the Antibodies and the Antibody Brain Ar Ru, and transcripting it into the Soulspace of a Reyvateil. So in simpler words, Saki is like a personification of the Planet herself, an existence that embodies the feelings the Planet has as a [loving Creator].

Saki's largest mind frequencies have such high frequencies that they are in a league completely different from those of the normal Reyvateils, so this is why her Soulspace is located inside Tyria's Binary Field, in the Tower.

However, although Saki is a γ-Sublimate created from copying the feelings of the Planet, her body isn't made to endure the burden from using the same levels of energy the Planet uses multiple times. If she does this, she will die. Because of that, the Archia Think Tank had planned to leave her in cryonic sleep until they found the Antibody Brain, and awaken her once it was time for her to accomplish her mission.

As described above, Saki was born as a γ-Sublimate inside the Archia Think Tank, and was raised around one year inside it. She was planned to be put into cryonic sleep shortly after, but there was a researcher by the name of Kiraha that was against this plan. Having pity on Saki due to the mission that she was given, he escaped from the Think Tank, taking her with him.

Then, he entrusted Saki to a friend of his' called Lona, who lived in the special administrative region of Archia. Saki spent many happy years under Lona's care, and later on, began working as a teacher in the preschool for which Lona was the principal to help her, which also gave Saki plenty of time to be with the children.

However, these peaceful days didn't last long. Taking advantage of Lona's death, the Think Tank managed to learn about Saki's whereabouts. Around this time, Kiraha reappeared, and took Saki away from Archia. Then, he took her to the Blue Canyon Hamlet to hide.

Normally, Saki never stops smiling, and due to her gentle personality, she has an extreme hatred for conflicts. She is so gentle that she doesn't actually hate or distrust anyone, and treats everyone warmly. She loves and wants to protect everything. Her overflowing motherly qualities and gentleness, and her wishes for everyone to be happy, can't come from any other thing that she herself being the personification of the Planet Ar Ciel as a [loving Creator].

Naturally, Saki won't just sit down quietly. Since she has a very strong sense of responsibility, once she has decided to do something, there won't be anyone capable of stopping her. Such a way of thinking has made her look like a complete airhead in many occasions, but well, they are things that go beyond the comprehension of other people. She will do whatever she can for the people she likes, but since she always takes the actions she thinks are the best for everyone, she most likely will take the most erratic paths, and without bothering to tell anyone about it.

Furthermore, while the mission for which she was created has quite a great importance, Saki herself isn't an strong girl, neither physically or mentally, so naturally, she isn't able of handling her power very well. Because of this, the Planet Ar Ciel sent in 2 other personae into the Soulspace, while leaving her as the main persona. Whenever Saki comes across a crisis she can't solve by herself, the other personae will manifest on the physical world, depending on which one is the best to solve said crisis, and save her.

By raising her concentration when she offers her prayers, Saki is capable of releasing very powerful Dynamic H-Waves, which transform into cakes any living or inert things that come in contact with them. This is an special power called EXEC_FLIP that only the Reyvateils from the Third Tower can use, but it's called [Miracle] in the game. While it has an incredible power, its usage greatly consumes Saki's mental power, which gives it the great flaw of shortening her life span the more she uses it.

Also, whenever Saki receives an great mental shock, she will release a [Miracle] involuntarily. An example of this was when Saki unconsciously released a [Miracle] when Lona died due to great shock this supposed to her, which allowed an special squad of the Archia Think Tank to track her down.

Among the people that Saki has met, the ones for who she has particularly strong feelings are Kiraha and Lona. These two were like very precious teachers to her.

Kiraha was the researcher tasked with performing maintenance on Saki ever since she was born, and has always been at her side. Kiraha considered Saki's life on the same level as that of a human's, making him intolerant to the plan of her and the Antibody Brain mutually annihilating each other, and since the one that proposed that plan originally was Raphael, who was greatly antagonistic to him, he took Saki and ran away with her from the Archia Think Tank. He was with her all the time since they ran away from Archia up to when they arrived to the Blue Canyon Hamlet. We could say that Kiraha was like a father to Saki.

As for Kiraha himself, he gave too much importance to his life as a researcher, making him greatly neglect his family. During the time he was part of the Think Tank, he almost never went home, and this possibility completed vanished when he took Saki away because they had to keep themselves hidden. Because of this, his son Katene doesn't consider him as a father, so it was inevitable that he felt that Kiraha had pretty much abandoned them.

Lona was a friend of Kiraha, and the principal of the Ougai Memorial Preschool. She was entrusted with Saki by Kiraha, and she didn't just shelter her: she also made an opportunity for Saki to be in contact with other children as a teacher, which also gave Saki a great motivation. Lona was so important to Saki, that when she died, Saki was so shocked that her emotions raised without control, and ended manifesting her first [Miracle], which allowed the Think Tank to track her down.

Saki's life in the Ougai Memorial Preschool was quite an enriching experience to her. Since she was such a motherly person, dealing with children was pretty much her vocation. So much that when it became time for her to leave the preschool, she felt greatly disappointed.

After Lona died, the preschool was left without a manager, and it was closed down. While there were several orphans lodged here, these children were finally sent to Clustania's Slave District. They later on reunited with Saki, and were safely rescued.

Saki was very loved by the children. Saki herself felt that this job was what she wanted to do the most, so if she didn't have any duties to fulfill, she most likely would have spent her entire life as a teacher. Just before the confrontation with the Antibody Brain, the only wish that Saki was to meet once again with the children in the preschool, and tell them one of the picture stories she had made. The children corresponded to these feelings, and while they were scattered all over Archia at that time, they reunited in the preschool, allowing Saki to share with them the very short time she had left in this world.

Saki's hobby is creating stories. Because she likes telling stories to the children of the preschool, she has always been making her own picture stories. However, since these stories are made with an unique sense that transcends the comprehension of other people, there are some doubtful points when it comes to their popularity. In fact, the story that she told Aoto: her newest creation titled [The Story of the Hero and the Overlord], was made with such a Super Plot Development, that he was left at a loss for words. By the way, this story went later on through two revisions, and was finally told in full in Saki's Normal Ending. For more details, please check page 136.

That Saki is so active at making these stories shows how much she loves creating things, but there is also a larger reason to that. She knows that she is destined to someday vanish together with the Antibody Brain, and she has resigned herself to this fate. However, the children may be unable to accept that she won't be around anymore. It would be very sad to Saki if she hurt the children due to this, so in order to allow the children to continue feeling her presence, she has put all of her memories, her feelings, and her soul in creating many stories, to serve as her legacy in this world after she has disappeared.

While humankind has received many devastating attacks from these menaces, thanks to the efforts of the Archia Think Tank, the Antibodies were exterminated and the crisis was averted, allowing them to continue existing until the current times. However, this doesn't mean that these menaces have completely disappeared.

The inside of Saki's Cosmosphere is a world filled with feelings of hatred against fighting. Since she always wants to distance herself from the horrible disputes as much as possible, the Saki in the Soulspace at times runs away, at others she yields to someone's else way, just to avoid fighting. And it's hard to persuade her into changing her mind about these matters, since she is unable to understand them.

Also, Sakia Lumei, who appears throughout all the levels of the Cosmosphere, has an extremely important role, being the queen that controls Saki's Soulspace. The reason for Sakia having this role is a secret hidden behind the way in which she was made, which is explained in full at the deepest levels of the Cosmosphere.

Aoto entered to Saki's Cosmosphere. However, the Saki inside the Soulspace was completely unable to even notice his existence. Then, one of other personae, Sakia Lumei, appeared and told him that he would need to bring to her a certain Hymma hidden somewhere in this world, in order for him to talk with Saki.

いには手を貸さないと言い張るのだった。

This level was set in the new Cosmosphere that Saki had recreated. Aoto and Saki arrived at a fairy tale-like village that had its houses made from candy, but then, the Mind Guardian Arche appeared and unilaterally declared a war. While Aoto tried to take measures against him, Saki insisted that she wouldn't take part in something like a war.

The castle of the Adult Kingdom appeared in the Soulspace. Once they reached the castle, the queen of it, Sarapatra, appeared before Aoto and Saki. She demonstrated to Saki that nothing can be done if you spend your life just running away from the conflicts. However, Saki obstinately refused to fight against her.

This world was a musical city. The resident songstress of this city, Saki, abandoned singing and began living a calm, yet poor life at Aoto's side. With the help of Saki's rival songstress, Sarapatra, Aoto had to do the best he could for Saki to regain her singing voice.

This was an unique world in which a gigantic robot fashioned after Aoto towered over everything else. The very heart of this world was the World Tree Arphage, but due to the subversive activities that someone did, it began burning. While Saki rode the robot to extinguish the fire, she also began harboring feelings of confusion and envy against Finnel, who was becoming good friends with Aoto.

Due to the coming of the Doomsday Tsunami, the world was almost completely sunken under the water. In this world at the brink of death; Saki, Filament and the others were confirmed to be part of the Consesus of the Wills of the Planet. However, the others had to persuade Saki into acting according to the orders given by the Planet's Consensus, in contrast with Saki herself, who still clung to the ideal of saving the humans.

Saki's Cosmosphere was devoured by the Doomsday Tsunami, and the book that represented her world was closed. Aoto tried to save Saki, who imprisoned herself inside the book and wouldn't come out no matter what anyone did. However, Sakia appeared before him, and told him the shocking truth. The words that came out from her mouth were the truth about the relationship between her and Saki.

The book disappeared, confirming that Saki's Soulspace was following the path to being regenerated. With the cooperation of the other personae, Aoto embarked on a journey to awaken Saki, who was now in a deep sleep. He decided that he would protect Saki for the rest of his life, to make true her ideals of saving the humans and their world, even if it was against the intentions of the Planet's Consensus.

With Aoto's help, Saki created a new Soulspace. Sakia then entrusted everything to Saki, and Aoto, who had pledged to walk alongside her. Then, the three personae that were Sakia and the Wills of the Planet entrusted themselves to Saki. Thus, the day for them to unite with the Wills of the Planet came.

崩壊に向かうアルシエル。惑星の意志たちにも滅びの時が
近づいていた……。人間を信じて、今サキが旅立つ

Ar Ciel is heading to its destruction. Even the Wills of the Planet are getting closer to their destruction... Now, believing in the humans, Saki will begin her journey.

 そんな過酷な環境のなか、レーレを中心とするモディファイアの
一属は、今日もこの世界を救うための方法を考えていました。
「レーレ様! シャラを任せでください! この新しいDNAを今残って

 そう元気に発言したのはシャラノワール。植物や木々のモディファ

「シャラ、それはどういうものなのですか?」
「はいっ! これをですね、こうやって変異させると…ほら! 雲海の

「わわっ! 植物さんなのに動いてますっ!」
 これを見たレーレはすぐに問題に気づき、難色を示しました。

 レ一レの難色に、シャラは憤りを感じました。
「でもレーレ様! それくらいでないと、もうこの世界では生き延び

「いいでずか?  シャラ。確かにそれも手段の1つかも知れません。
ですが、それではアル・ルゥの生命と同じです」
「アル・ルゥの抗体なんかと一緒にしないで!! あいつらは世界を一

 いつの間にか、この場に新しい顔が並んでいまじた。

「フィラメント、一体どうしたのでずか?  何かあったのでずか?」
「いえ、レーレ。今のツッコミは本題とは関係無いわ。ただあまりに
サキがおめでたくて、思わず突っ込んじゃっただけ。それより大変よ。
この世界に、あたし達とは違う存在が入り込んだわ」
「違う存在でずか? それはどんな存在ですか? フィラメント」
「わからない。でも、放っておくと大変なことになるかも。みんなで
手分けして探しましょ」
「わかりました。それではシャラ、サキ。創造は一旧止めて、その存

 何か、神々とは違う意志がこの世界に入り込んだようでした。今ま
でに前例がない事もあって、善きものか悪しきものか、それは誰に
もわかりませんでした。そこでレーレは、レーレ属の神全員で2人以
上の組を設定し、分担して原因を探すことにしました。
「全く…どうしてこのシャラが、サキなんかと一緒なのよ!」
「よろしくお願いしますっ! 頑張って探しましょう!
「お願いだから、足引っ張らないでよね」
 過去に何度もサキの暴走で痛い目を見ていたシャラは、まだ出向
く前だというのに既にウンザリしていました。
 対するサキは、新しいものの存在にワクワクしているようです。
「シャラちゃん、サキ達はあっちの方を探してみましょうっ!」
 二人が辿り着いたところは、とても綺麗なお花畑でした。
 赤、白、黄色……様々な花が咲き乱れ、光が満ちあふれています。
「すごい……綺麗です! 今でもこんな素敵なお花畑があったんです
ねっ!」
 神々の世界は、以前は一面こんな姿だったのです。今では破壊が
進み、このような綺麗な光景はほとんど見ることができませんでした。
「ここも……シャラの宝箱だから。でももう今はここだけ。地上の世
界にも、もうどこにもないの……」
「……シャラちやん……」
「サキ……人間がここまで追い詰めたのよ? ……それなのに……」
「わかってます。でも、サキは人間さんを信じてるんです。人間
さんが好きなんです」
「シャラだって好きよ。人間は草木をとても愛してくれた生命だもの。
でも……」
「シャラちゃん、サキは……っ」
「ごめんサキ、少し独りになりたい。どこかへ行っていてくれないか
しら」
「……っ……ご、ごめんなさいっ……」
 普段とっても元気で強気なシャラノワールを演じていても、やっぱ
り現実と向かい合えばとても辛くて悲しいのです。それはこの時代、
神々皆がそうでした。だから誰もがそれを表に出さずに頑張ってい
たのです。サキはシャラノワールに気遣って、ひとりで花畑を歩いて
いました。
「……はぁ……やっぱリサキはダメサキです。シャラちゃんの気待ち
を察してあげる事も出来ないなんて……。サキは……人間さんを作っ
た者として、この世界に何が出来るのでじょうか……」
「にゃも?」
「え!?」
 いつの間にか、傍に小さな存在がありました。それは奇妙な猫の
ような顔をしている動物のようでした。
「にゃもにゃも! にゃも!」
「わぁ! 何だかとっても可愛いです!何て言っているのでしょうか」

「にゃもにゃも!にゃもにゃも!!」
「……う一ん、サキには言葉が解らないみたいです。とにかく、お名
前はにゃもちゃんですね」
 サキはにゃもを連れていく事にしました。
「シャラちゃん、これ、見てくださいっ」
「ちょっと! 独りにしてってさっき…… ……って……サ……サキ
……!? それ……」
「にゃもちゃんすっ!」

「レーレ様! 大変です!! サキがまた勝手に変なものを創造しまし
た!!」
「変なものじゃありませんっ! にャもちゃんですっ! それにサキが
創ったものじゃありません」
「にゃもにゃも!!」
「恐らくこの子がフィラメントの言っていた、"私達とは違う存在"の
事でしょう」
「ええ!!? こんなに可愛い子が? もっとオバケみたいなものかと
思っていました」
「サキは本当に甘過ぎるのよ。可愛い顔して実はオバケだった! な
んて事もあるわよ?」


「そんな事ありません! サキは感じるんです。この子はとっても暖
かくて、優しい子です」
 シャラノワールに脅されてもサキは揺るぎませんでした。なぜな
ら、にゃもからは本当に、なんだが暖かい想いが感じられたからでず。
「とにかく、サキ、シャラ。それを見つけた場所へ行き、他に何か手
がかりがないか探してください」

「もうっ! バカサキ!! なんでシャラまでこんな面倒くさい作業につ
き合わなきゃいけないのよ!」
「あわわ、ごめんなさい……っ……」
 二人は草原をしゃがんだりかき分けたりしながら、漠然と"何か手
がかり"を探していた。
「……まあいいけど。ここに来れるのは嫌いじゃないし」
「サギもここは大好きです。こんな綺麗な場所、他には有りません
から」
「昔は沢出あったんだげどね。今は、ここだけがシャラの創造した生
命の宝箱みたいな場所だから……せめてここだけでも、ずっど残っ
ていて欲しい……」
「シャラちゃん」

 その時、サキはふと違和感を感じました。よく見ると、先ほどまで
一緒にいたにゃもがいなくなっています。
「あ、あれれ!? にゃもちゃんがいない!?」
「えええっ!? もう、何やってるのよ!早く探すわよ!」
 二人しで草花をかき分け、にゃもを探しました。にゃもは小さくて
草花に隠れてしまうためた、探すのは困難だったのです。
「にゃもちゃーーん!」
「バカにゃもーーーっ!!」
  二人して探せども、にゃもは見つかりません。そんな時、突然地面
 が大きく揺れました。またこの世界を維持する力が弱まったのです。
「きゃあっ!!」

二人はあまりの揺れに立っていることが出来ません。そして何と、
この草原が真っ二つになるように大地が割け、その半分が崩れ始め
たのです!
「きゃあっ! 落ちますっ!!」
「サキ!はやくこっちへ!!」
 二人はもう半分の崩れない方へ、いちもくさんに走りました。とこ
ろがそんな時です。
「にゃもにゃも!」
「にゃもちゃん!?」
 なんと、崩れ落ちる大地の果てからにゃもの声がしたのです。
「にゃもちゃん! 今行きます!」
サキが走り出そうとしました。ですが、シャラノワールが腕を掴ん
で引き留めます。
「サキ!無理だってば!! もう間に合わないわ!」
「でも、にゃもちゃんがっ!!」
 シャラノワールは少しの時間の後に、決意したような表情でにゃも
の声がする方を見て言いました。
「もう!! 本当にあんたたちは世話が焼けるんだから! サキはここ
に待ってなさい!」

それだけ言うとシャラノワールは、すでに崖ほどの傾斜になった草
原を駆け下りていったのです。
「シャラちゃんっ!!!」
 サキがあたふたしながら見ていると、草原の草花が抜けて結われ、
一木の蔓になっていきます。そしてそれが、サキの後ろにあった低木
にきゅっと巻き付きました。

 シャラノワールは無事、にゃもを抱えて蔓を登ってきました。

「はぁ……はぁ………」

「シャラちゃん! 大丈夫ですかっ!? サキが回復しましょうかっ?」
「……大丈夫……大丈夫……… ……だけど……」
「……」
「お花が…………っ……」
 シャラノワールはへたり込んだままうつむいていました。そして、堪
えていても涙がぽたぽたと落ちました。今回の世界崩壊で、この大切
なシャラノワールの宝箱は、そのほとんどが崩れ落ちてしまったので
す。既にそこにしか咲いていない、沢山の綺麗な花を道連れに……。
「シャラちゃん……」
「にゃも! にゃもにゃも!!」
 泣いているシャラノワールに、にゃもはその手に持っていたものを
差し出しました。そこには、鮮やかなピンク色をした一輪の花が握ら
れていました。
「……それは……ダイアンサス…………」
 シャラノワールは、にゃもから一輪の花ダイアンサスを受け取りま
した。
「シャラの一番お気に入りの花の……ありがとう……」

 その後シャラノワールの元気が回復することはありませんでした。
一旦レーレのもとに帰ったサキ達が知ったことは、あまりにも過酷な
事でした。
「シャラの生命力、もうあとわずかしか残っていません。今はここ
で安静にしていた方がいいでしょう」
「レーレ様!! サキのせいですっ! サキが、にゃもちゃんから目を離し
て、シャラちゃんがそれを助けてくれたからこんなことに……っ……」
「それは違いますよ、サキ。シャラの生命力低下は、この世界の理。
もっと酷いな言い方をするなら、この世界の力が更に弱まり、総意は"植
物の意志"という存在を切り離そうとしています」
「ええっ!? それって……」
「もう、我々の創りし世界、アルシエルには、植物と呼ばれるものは
 わずかにしか残っていません。そのため、そのわずかなもののため
に、その意志が工ネルギーを消費することを否定したのです」
「そんな……そんなのっで酷いですっ!」
 ですがこの時期、そのような形で消えていく意志……すなわち神
は、それこそ五万といました。今回その白羽の矢が、シャラソワール
に当たってしまっただけなのです。シャラノワールは、にゃもが最後
に持ってきてくれたダイアンサスを大事に抱えて眠っていました。
 でもこのままではいずれ、シャラノワールは消えてしまいます。

「サキに……サキにできることはありませんかっ!? サキが何でもし
 ます!」
「……サキにできることはありません」
「にゃもにゃも!!」
「にゃもちゃん……?」
 見ると、にゃもがぴょんぴょん飛び跳ね、プンプンてを振って、何が
今まで以上に力説をしているようでした。そして少し走っていき、「こ
っちこっち!」と誘っているようです。
「にゃもちゃん! どうしたんですかっ!」
 にゃもはまた遠くへ行き、こっちへ来てと言わんばかりに手を振っ
ています。
「レーレ様、サキ、にゃもちゃんと一緒に行きますっ!」
 「わかりました。私もフィラメントを連れて後から向かいます。くれぐれ
それまでは勝手なことはしないでください」
「はいっ!」
 そしてサキは、シャラノワ一ルの手に手を載せて言いました。
「シェラちゃん、ちょっとおでかけしてきます。一緒にいられなくてご
めんなさいっ…」
 サキがにゃもに着いていくと、先ほどの落ちた草原の崖に辿り着き
ました。そして一生懸命がけの下を指さしています。そこには一つの
光が渦を巻いていました、
「あの光の渦は……人間さんの世界!?」
 サキはすぐにわかりました。この神の(!?)と人間が住む地上世界
に繋ぐワームホールであると。
「希望が溢れています……。これは……」
「サキ、なにがありましたか!?」
 レーレが少し遅れて、フィラメントを連れてやってきました。そして
二人ますぐに気づきました。これ地上世界とのワームホールであ
るという事に。
「サキ、行きます。あの穴から地上世界に向かいます」
「サキ! 何を言っているのですか? あ先に何があるのかわから
ないのですよ?」
「でも、悪い思いは伝わってきません。純粋で、前向きで、とても温
かな想いがあふれ出ています。そして、サキ達の力を欲しています。
この世界を助けて欲しい……って。そのために来てくれって! レー
レ様も、フィラメントちゃんも、それはわかりますよね? にゃもち
ゃは、サキ達に助けを求めに来たんです!」
「…サキ。貴方の言っていることは間違っていない。でも罠かも知れ
ないわ」
「サキは信じます。人間さんが純粋な心でサキ達を呼んでいるんで
す。サキは人間さんを創った一人です。サキが創り出した人間さんで
すから、サキは信じます! それに……サキはシャラちゃんを助けた
い。にゃもちゃんとサキを助けてくれたシャラちゃんが助かるなら危
険な場所でも行きます。だから、お願いです! 行かせてくださいっ」
「……サキ。貴方は言ったら聞かさない子だから、もう心変わりはしな
いと思いますが……決して安易ではないと思いますよ」
「もちろんです!」
「私達が創った世界とはいえ、向こうに言ったら、何をされても私達
は何のフォローもできませんよ」
「はい!」
 フィラメントはその様子をずっと無言で見ていましたが、最後にふと
 思い立ったように言いました。
「サキ。あたしも着いていく。サキ一人では心配だから」
サキはシャラちゃんの元へ行き、もう一度別れの挨拶をしました。
「シャラちゃん、かならずシャラちゃんが善くなるように、サキ頑張り
ますっ! 今のサキがいるのはシャラちゃんのお陰ですから…。それ
までどうか…頑張って生きてっ…」
 こうしてサキとフィラメントは、レーレ達に見送られながら、にゃも

違いありません。

 今回のお話は、ここで閉じることにしましょう。
 サラパトゥールが地上世界に降り立つのはまた別のお話。いずれ
また、語る機会があればお話ししましょう。

This is an story that describes an stage in the lives of the Wills of the Planet. To make it easier to understand for the humans, we have go as far as restructuring in the same way as the stories the humans normally write. It would even be appropriate to say we are telling it in the same way as a natural method of storytelling used on our world, called "myths". This story tells about something that happened to the Wills of the Planet many years ago... and since they are Gods in practical terms, it would be a "myth", no matter how we see it.

Back then, the world was already at the border of collapse. And the world in which the Gods lived wasn't an exception to this: even their eternal world had already become a thing of the faraway past. The land was turned into a wasteland, and even the Gods themselves began disappearing one by one.

Inside this harsh environment, the Modifiers that had Lere as their center were using the current day to discuss ways to save their world.
"Lady Lere! Please leave it to me! We will modify the remaining plants with this new DNA, and save the world with it!"

The one that so energetically said this was Shelanoir, the being that was called the Modifier (Creator) of the plants and trees.

"Shela, are you sure that they will be capable of doing that?"
"Yes! We modify the plants with this, and... voila! Do you see how they are opening and closing their mouths and sucking in the poison of the sea of clouds?"
"Whoa! The plants are really moving!"

Upon seeing this, Lere immediately noticed that this would cause a new problem, and expressed her disapproval.

"I think that it's a very good idea... however, there is a problem with it. The adaptability of these moving plants is so large, that they would end causing a great change to the balance and order of this world. If that happened, these plants would abnormally multiply and increase their numbers, destroying the rest of the living creatures in the world"

Shela felt indignant due to Lere's disapproval.

"But, Lady Lere! If we don't do it, nothing else will be able to survive in this world"
"Please listen, Shela. It certainly could serve as one method for saving our world. However, they are exactly the same thing as the life forms that Ar Ru created"
"Don't put my plants in the same category as Ar Ru's Antibodies! Weren't these things created to kill everything else in the world!?"

Shela felt very sad that Lere had brought up the topic of the Antibodies. Ar Ru was a new Goddess that had been born very recently by order of the Planet's Consensus. However, since she was created to reset the old cycle of life of the Planet and construct a new one, she was made with completely different feelings from the ones that the Gods of the old cycle: Lere and the rest of her lineage, were made from. Due to the role she had, Ar Ru caused a great deal of nervousness to Shela.

"U... uhmmm! I agree with Lady Lere's opinion!"
"Whaat!? Even you are on Ar Ru's side, Saki!?"
"No! B-but, if you made these devouring flowers, I'm sure that they would kill the humans as well!"
"They... wouldn't do that!"

Among the Modifiers, Saki was the Goddess tasked with the creation of the animals and sentient life forms. Because of that, she felt as very responsible for the devastated state in which the world was now, and always felt very bitter when the others talked about her children.

"Well, then tell us one of your ideas!"
"O-okay! I think that maybe we should allow the humans to discover a way to adapt themselves to survive in the current world. If we do that, they might do their best to use that knowledge to neutralize the the sea of clouds and the layer of plasma!"
"Saki, you are being too naive. We have done many times similar things in the past, but the humans never gave any sort of positive influence to this world"
"Filament!?"

At some point, a new face had appeared among the Gods. That was Filament, one of the Gods that controlled preservation called Maintenancers, which had the role of controlling the cycles and order that Saki and the other Modifiers had created. Normally, the Maintenancers would never meddle in a discussion between the Modifiers, which was why everyone was surprised at her appearance.

"Filament, what is the reason for you being here? Has something happened?"
"No, Lere. My intromission has nothing to do with your current conversation. I just wanted to tell Saki how naive she was, and without thinking I ended getting dragged here. Also, something terrible has happened. Another being different from us has invaded this world"
"Another being? What kind of being is that, Filament"
"I don't know yet. However, if we leave it alone, there is a possibility that it will become something terrible. I wanted to ask for your help in searching for it"
"Very well. Saki, Shela, we will leave the discussion on creation for today. Now, I want you two to find out what kind of being that is"

Somehow, a will different from that of the Gods' has entered this world. This was something that had never happened before, so no one had a way of knowing if this was a sign of something good or bad. Because of that, Lere sent all of the Gods that were born from her lineage in groups to search for that being.

"Ugh... Why I have to go with Saki!?"
"Pleased to work with you! Let's do our best at finding it!"
"Please, just don't hold me back"

Shela had witnessed several painful experiences in the past due to Saki's recklessness, and was already fed up with being paired with her. On the other hand, Saki was already very excited to find out about the existence of new things.

"Shely, let' search over there!"

The two then arrived at a very beautiful flower field. Red, white, yellow... there were flowers of all colors blooming all over the place, and it was filled with a warm light.

"Amazing... it's so beautiful! I didn't know there was still such a wonderful flower field around!"

The world of the Gods has already become a flat place since many years ago. Currently, the destruction steadily progressed, making sceneries as beautiful as this an extremely rare sight to behold.

"This is... my treasure. This is the only place in its kind in this world now. There aren't places like this even in the surface world now..."
"...Shely..."
"Saki... the humans were the ones that drove us to this point... Why they had to...?"
"I know. But, I'll still believe in the humans. I really love them"
"I like them too. They are life forms that have greatly loved my trees and plants. But..."
"Shely, I..."
"Sorry, Saki. I want to be alone for a while. Could you please go somewhere else in the meantime?"
"...S-sorry..."

While Shelanoir always acted very energetic and strong, she actually was feeling very sad and bitter. That was the same way in which all the Gods were feeling at this time. That's why despite not looking like it, they were trying their best to solve the situation. Saki was kept worrying about Shelanoir while she continued walking through the flower field alone.

"...*huff*... As I thought, I'm useless. I'm not even able of sympathizing with Shely's feelings... I... as the creator of the humans, what I could do for this world...?"
"Nyamo?"
"Huh!?"

At some point, she found an small being at her side. That being looked like a very small, cat-like animal.

"Nyamonyamo! Nyamo!"
"Whoa! You're so cute! But what are you trying to say?"
"Nyamonyamo! Nyamonyamo!!"
"...Hmm. Sorry, looks like I can't understand you. Anyway, I'll be calling you Nyamo!"

Saki then took Nyamo with her.

"Shely! Please, look over here~"
"Wait! I just told you to leave me alo... ne... Sa...Saki!? What is that...?"
"He's Nyamo"

"Lady Lere! It's terrible! Saki has created a weird creature again without permission!"
"He isn't a weird creature! He's Nyamo! And I didn't make him!
"Nyamonyamo!!"
"Perhaps he is the 'being different from us' that Filament mentioned before."
"Huh!? This cute thing? Don't tell you me that you think he looks like a ghost or something"
"Saki, you're really naive. Maybe it has a cute face, but it's actually a ghost! Aren't there such things as well?"
"Of course not! I can feel it. He's a very warm and gentle creature"

Even with Shelanoir's threats, Saki didn't falter. For some reason, she had actually felt some warm feelings out from Nyamo.

"Anyway, Saki, Shela. I want you two to please return to the place where you found him, and see if there are any other clues"

"Ugh! Stupid Saki! It's your fault that I'm getting forced to do these boring tasks now!"
"Ouch ouch, sorry..."

The two were squatting and going through the grassfields, seeking some vague 'clues'.

"...Well, it's okay. It's not like I hate coming to this place"
"I like this place too. There aren't any other places as beautiful as this"
"There used to be many like it a long time ago. But now, this is the only place with this appearance, a treasure box of the life forms I had created... I wish that at least this place could continue existing forever..."
"Shely..."

At that moment, Saki suddenly began having a bad feeling, and once she looked better, she noticed that Nyamo had disappeared.

"H-huh!? Where's Nyamo!?"
"What!? Then do something! Let's begin searching for it now!"

The continued looking through the grassfields to search for Nyamo. However, Nyamo was so small that he was hidden by the grass, making the search quite difficult.

"Nyamo!"
"Stupid Nyamo!!"

No matter how much they searched, they were unable to find Nyamo. Then, the ground began wildly shaking suddenly. Once again, the power that kept the world in existence was weakening.

"Aaah!!"

The shaking got to the point in which they were unable to continue standing. Then, the grassfield was split in two parts as the land cracked, and each of the halves began collapsing!

"Aaah!! We're going to fall!!"
"Saki! Hurry up and come here!!"

The two headed to the half that hadn't collapsed yet, and began running as fast as they could. However, at that moment...

"Nyamonyamo!"
"Nyamo!?"

Somehow, she heard Nyamo's voice coming from the border of the crumbling piece of land.

"Nyamo! I'll go now!"

Saki began running. However, Shelanoir grasped one of her arms, and began restraining Saki.

"Saki! It's useless! You won't arrive on time!"
"But, Nyamo is going to...!!"

Shelanoir continued restraining her for a little more time, but then she faced with a decided expression to the place from which Nyamo's voice was coming out.

"Ugh!! You really are troublesome! Just wait here!"

And having said this, Shelanoir began running down through the slope that a few moments ago was a grassfield.

"Shely!!!"

Saki then saw how the flowers from the grassfield connected to each other, and began becoming a single vine. Then, one of the shrubs coiled around her and tightly held her.

Shelanoir was safe, and began climbing the vine with Nyamo on her arms.

"*huff*...*huff*..."

"Shely! Are you okay!? Should I heal you?"
"...I'm okay... I'm okay... but..."
"..."
"The flowers are..."

Shelanoir then dropped herself on the ground, depressed. Then, despite holding back as much as she could, her tears began dropping to the floor. With the collapse of this world, the precious treasure box that Shelanoir tried to protect so much had collapsed almost completely. Now no flowers would be able to bloom here again, and all of the beautiful flowers that were there didn't exist anymore...

"Shely..."
"Nyamo! Nyamonyamo!!"

Then, Nyamo gave to the crying Shelanoir something he had on his paws.. He had a ring of vivid pink flowers around them.

"...These are... Dianthus flowers..."

Shelanoir then took these flowers from Nyamo.

"These are my most precious flowers... Thank you..."

After this, Shelanoir didn't regain her health. Once they returned to Lere's side, she had to tell them a very cruel fact.

"Shela's life force has been almost completely depleted. It would be better if we leave her resting here for now"
"Lady Lere!! It's all my fault! It's all because Nyamo disappeared from our sight, and Shely had to use her powers to save us that she ended like this..."
"That wasn't the cause, Saki. The decline in Shela's life force is because of the laws of this world. It might be very cruel to say it this way, but given that the power of this world has gotten even weaker, the Consensus has decided to cut off the being we call the 'Will of the Plants'."
"Huh!? But that means..."
"Now, the things we know as the plants are almost inexistent in the world we created, Ar Ciel. Because of this, since they are now in such a low number, they have decided to eliminate their Will to decrease the consumption of the energy we still have"
"But that's... that's so cruel!"

However, around this time already 50000 Wills... or better said, Gods, had disappeared in this same way. Now the one that was stricken down by the arrows of fate was just Shelanoir. She still embraced the precious Dianthus flowers that Nyamo had given her as she slept. However, if things continued this course, Shelanoir would disappear as well.

"There isn't... there isn't anything I can do!? I'll do anything to help!"
"...There isn't anything you can do, Saki"
"Nyamonyamo!!"
"Nyamo...?"

As soon as she looked at him, Nyamo began skipping around, acting as if he was furious, as if he was insisting in something about what Lere had just said. Then, he began running, as if he was telling them 'Over here, over here!'.

"Nyamo! What is it!?"

Nyamo then went a little farther in, and as if it was to tell them that it was the place, he began moving his paws.

"Lady Lere, please come with Nyamo and me to that place"
"Very well. However, I will ask Filament to accompany us as well. Please, refrain from taking any reckless actions before we return"
"Okay!"

Then, Saki put her hands over Shelanoir's, as she told this to her:
"Shely, I'll be going out for a little while. Forgive me for not being at your side..."

Saki then began following Nyamo, and finally arrived at the cliff in which the grassfield stood a while before. Then, she made her best efforts to go down to the bottom. In there, she found a single swirl of light.

"That swirl of light... is that the world of the humans!?"

Saki understood as soon as she saw it. This was a wormhole that connected this (!?) of the Gods with the surface world in which the humans lived.

"I'm overflowing with hope... this is..."
"Saki, what did you find here"

A little later, Lere and Filament had arrived to this place, and both immediately noticed it, the wormhole that connected both worlds together.

"I'll go there. I'll use that hole to head to the surface world"
"Saki, what are you saying!? You don't even know what you will find beyond that hole!"
"But I don't feel any evil feelings coming out from it. I can feel very warm, pure, and positive feelings overflowing out from it. And I feel that it also wants our powers, to save this world... That's why he came! Lady Lere, Filament, do you see it now!? Nyamo came here seeking us to save the world!"
"...Saki. I don't think you are wrong, but it could be a trap as well"
"I'll believe in them. I'll believe that the pure hearts of the humans are calling to us. I was the one that created the humans, and because of them being my creations, I'll believe in them! And besides... I want to save Shely. She saved me and Nyamo when we were stuck in such a dangerous place. So please, let me go"
"...Saki. Since you're so stubborn, I don't think that I'll be able to change your mind... however, know that it won't be an easy task"
"I know!"
"Unlike the world we created for ourselves, once you have left for that other world, we won't be able to send you any help if anything happens"
"Okay!"

Filament watched over this scene in silence, and finally, she ended saying a thought that she got a few moments ago.

"I'll be going with you, Saki. If you go alone, I'll end up dying from worry"

Saki then returned to Shela's side once more, and said her farewell.

"Shely, I'll do my best for you to be okay again! It's thanks to you that I'm standing here right... so until I come back... please, continue living..."

Thus, Saki, Filament and Nyamo entered the hole, as Lere bid them farewell.

After this, Saki and the others, together with the help of the life forms that lived in the surface world, managed to successfully lead this world in the path to its regeneration. At that time, Saki when saw the very first new life to be created on the surface... she was so happy that she shed tears, because that life were two leaves of a Dianthus plant.

And this closes off this story.
However, there is also other story about how Salapator and the others descended to the surface world. If we ever get other chance, we will tell them too.

One of Saki's personae, devoted to the several kinds of desire. Saki is so patient that she never throws her personal wishes in the face of others, but it's completely different in Sarapatra's case. Although she treats everyone kindly, Sarapatra takes care of the main persona, Saki, as if she was her older sister, an occasionally she exchanges positions with Saki to help her.

She is also one of the Wills of the Planet, and like the other personae that reside in Saki's Soulspace, she also forms part of the Planet's Consensus.

We framed her to be this game's older sister-type character. By the way, we were aware that she was very similar to Claire, which served that same role for Aurica in Ar tonelico 1. We decided to leave all aspects of her design to Nagi, and since there weren't any particular complaints against her design, we decided to set it as the final one.

Among the Wills of the Planet, Sarapatra is the persona that controls maternity and the creation of life. As such, she has a large role in the raising and nurturing of the creatures that live in Ar Ciel's surface. Because of this, she also has an overflowing love for all the life existing in the Planet, even the ones that live currently. The humans, which were the responsible of her destruction, or better said, of Ar Ciel, are part of her beloved children as well. On the other hand, while she doesn't have much of an interest in the Reyvateils due to not being direct creations of the Planet, she treats them exactly the same as the rest of the beings that live in it.

Sarapatra has a personality that treats both Saki and Aoto as if they were her younger brothers. For Saki, she takes over whenever something that she can't handle happens, and for Aoto, she tells him all of the feelings that Saki has for him that she wouldn't say by herself. Given that Aoto is still immature, her extremely active attitudes feel like teasing to him, and make him confused and say words without thinking.

All of the people with multiple personalities are supposed to have a [persona that represents the painful parts of their hearts].

We gave her the motif of a nun and bandages to represent her as a being that has a body in the verge of death, and as a healing existence.

Among the Wills of the Planet, Filament has the role of serving as the spokesperson of the scarred Planet Ar Ciel. While it has lost its will to live, it still harbors strong feelings of wanting to be saved. Because of that, she was the first to oppose the resetting of life through the usage of the Antibodies, and why she wished for the Planet Regeneration Project to be continued. By the way, the fact that Filament is covered in wounds actually represents the current conditions of the Planet, and her heart is a reflection of the Planetary Core. Because the Core was shattered by the hands of humans a long time ago, Filament has lost her heart.

For some reason, Filament allows cat ears to appear in her head whenever she manifests, and she also acts like a cat whenever she Purges. Furthermore, her Mind Guardian Kokitty is actually a black cat dressed like a maid. Whenever Kokitty blows her trumpet, she ends covering the ground by a large number of black and white cats. This implies that Filament is pretty much a cat lover.

A persona that puts the accomplishment of her mission before everything else, who also has a great ability as swordswoman and a great bravery. Given that Saki has too little awareness to be able to survive in this harsh world, she owes a great deal of her existence to Sakia.

She has a very stubborn and serious personality. Due to giving priority to her tasks, this has causes very frequent conflicts with Aoto and the other personae. While she has a great power at her disposal, this leaves her unable to manifest in the real world for a long time, making it also her greatest weak point.

The time that passed between her initial designs and the time when we received the final drafts from Nagi was pretty short, since he was able to make her into the kind of character we imagined.

Strictly speaking, Sakia herself doesn't belong to the Wills of the Planet. She was actually a program created by the Archia Think Tank to make sure that Saki's actions gave priority to the sole task she had: [neutralizing the Antibody Braiin]. Because of this, Sakia is the original main persona, and the true owner of the body. However, since she can't manifest in the real world for a long time, she ended handing over her body to Saki. This also means that the persona that currently acts the most in the real world, Saki, is one of the Wills of the Planet, and that she came in after Sakia was born.

However, she began traveling with Aoto shortly after.

Beginning with the assassin Soma, she has several personae within her Soulspace, which causes her to have a very short life span. This was why she accepted this mission, since that would allow her to have a longer life. Finnel herself is very cheerful and well-mannered, which is what allowed her to attain the job of mascot girl at [Yokkora]. She has a very strong character, but she is also very clumsy, which keeps everyone at her side in their toes.

The concept we gave her was... having an slender shape that made easier for her to move, which makes her expose more skin than Saki.

Finnel was born as a Pureblooded β-type in the Reyvateil country of Clustania. Due to Clustania's total population control practices, only a handful of Reyvateils are born every year. In fact, only other four Reyvateils were born at the same time as Finnel, one of them being Akane, which later on became the Clustanian general.

All of these Pureblooded β-types that were born at the same time as her were given abilities for them to excel in military matters. Finnel was given excellent reflexes and emotional balance, making her perfect to take decisions in mere instants, while Akane was given an excellent analytical sense and a calm personality, allowing her to excel in tasks that required a great deal of concentration. However, the other three were lost in a certain incident: this was that the nurturing capsules in which their prime fields were being transformed into Reyvateil bodies were destroyed by an attack of the Antibodies.

This Antibody attack was planned by the upper management of Clustania, their leader Harvestasha, and finally, Ayatane of the Teru, who had made a plan based from a pact he made with the Wills of the Planet. He would offer to the Planet's Consensus a single Reyvateil body, and the body that was created specifically to be given to the Wills of the Planet ended being Finnel herself.

The Antibody attack was just a ruse made by the Wills of the Planet to send over one of themselves to Finnel's Soulspace, who still was inside her nurturing capsule, and use it to manifest themselves in the physical world. That specific Will ended being the Antibody Brain Ar Ru. And she wasn't the only one. Other three Wills of the Planet ended entering into her Soulspace as personae: Soma, Yurisica, Suzunomia. Thus, this was how Finnel was born in the world while having several personae in her Soulspace.

Since Finnel normally behaves like a cheerful, energetic girl, she has gotten quite a good reputation from the other people. However, since she is also very straightforward when she puts her true feelings into words, she has a tendency to get people angry at her. She is also plentiful in feelings: no matter if it's sadness, happiness or rage, she changes quickly feelings depending on the situation. This also makes a point of contrast between herself and Akane, who is pretty bad at expressing her feelings.

She always makes the hardest efforts in whatever she tries, and no matter how many times she fails, she has a will strong enough to continue trying until she succeeds. However, since there is always a part missing in the things she does, there are plenty of failures in her personal story. However, since she shows herself to others as an strong-willed person, she won't calmly stop from voicing her opinions because of the words of other people. However, she also has a face that will actively try to approach the person with which she fell in love.

Given this kind of personality, she is very self-conscious about being considered a dunce, and lacks self-condifence. Due to this, she has a potentially extreme case of servility, which is displayed as an strong M personality in her Cosmosphere.

In contrast to Akane, which displayed talents above even the elite of the elite, Finnel's growth was slow, and she was treated pretty much like a drop-out in Clustania. Furthermore, due to the constant exchanges with her other personae, she was called a [devilish avatar], and was cruelly teased and persecuted. Akane was the only person that always cared for her, and always kept protecting Finnel from further abuse.

On the other hand, when she met again with Finnel, this time her being on the enemy's side, she coldly thrust her away. This was because Akane was now Clustania's Commander. Due to being so devoted to her duty, she didn't want to look like she was rekindling their old friendship. However, when Akane learned later on that Finnel's consciousness would disappear once Ar Ru was revived, she opposed Harvestasha, who was Clustania's leader.

While normally Akane doesn't show her emotions, Finnel is a person important enough for her to protect her at any cost, no matter if it ends resulting in the loss of her own position.

When Ar Ru was sent into Finnel's Soulspace, she noticed that Finnel's body was too frail for her to use as a "vessel", due to Ar Ru possessing so much energy that the body would break down as soon as she took possession of it. Therefore, for Ar Ru to take hold of Finnel's consciousness, she would need an item known as the Selfstabilizing Tesseractal Nuclear Loop, commonly called the [Heart of the Land].

However, the Heart of the Land was only known to exist as a theoretical fact, and despite all the achievements that Clustania had done in the sciences, they never were able to successfully create one. Therefore, the Planet's Consensus decided to leave Ar Ru's consciousness sleeping until a Heart of the Land could be obtained. Once the time came, or better said, when she obtained a Heart of the Land, Ar Ru would awake from inside Finnel. Then, Finnel would be forced to give Ar Ru her body, this meaning that her own consciousness would disappear. This was the original purpose for which she was born as a Reyvateil. She never knew about this fact, yet still she was dispatched to the Great Fang to search for the Heart of the Land. Without knowing that once she found it, she would be doomed to disappear.

While Finnel has always been called a dunce, in a certain day, she suddenly revealed a hidden ability she had. This was when one of her personae, Soma, first appeared in the world. Soma's physical abilities were unparalleled, and exceeded by far the expected abilities that Finnel had. Due to this, Clustania raised Soma to be an assassin that would kill the most important figures among their enemies. Furthermore, to allow Soma to manifest whenever she liked, they Downloaded an Hymn Crystal into Finnel. Whenever someone sang the Hymmnos that corresponded to that crystal, Soma would be able to manifest easily. Thus, this was why Finnel suddenly transformed into Soma at times, and used her an assassin to eliminate the people that had become a hindrance to Clustania.

On the other hand, the fact that there are multiple persona coexisting in her Soulspace places a large burden on Finnel. Due to this, her Telomere, the energy units that serve as the life span indicator for the Reyvateils, are consumed at a rate several times faster the typical for a Pureblooded β-type, which results in her having an extremely short life. In fact, Finnel herself is aware that she only has two mere years of life left. Then, she was told that the Heart of the Land would be necessary to extend her life, and she departed for the Great Fang to seek it.

Once Finnel arrived to the Great Fang, she was unable of receiving any further help or support from Clustania, and found herself alone and helpless. And then, when she was lost and confused in one of the streets in the Eternus Shaft, Mrs. Lu, from the [Yokkora] bistro helped her. Mrs. Lu's kindness allowed her to receive both a place to stay in and a job. During the short time she worked, her characteristic cheerfulness and extrovertedness made her famous enough to be called the mascot girl for the restaurant.

The life in the Great Fang ended becoming very comfortable to Finnel. Although there were times in which Clustania made her perform tasks in which she had to be transformed into Soma, outside of that her only duty was seeking the Heart of the Land. Also, the only times in which she needed to investigate the areas around her were when the crystal she had Installed was activated. At first, Finnel was depressed due to the change of environment, but she gradually began thinking that she could be able to adapt to live in the Great Fang. After all, if she returned to Clustania, she would be considered as a dunce once again.

It was around this time that Finnel began to think that she would be unable to find the Heart of the Land, and that she would have to end giving up on extending her life. However, she met Aoto shortly after. She fell in love with him, which began changing her pessimistic outlook on life, and made her want to live longer, just to be at Aoto's side. These feelings were what awakened her attachment to life.

Among the Wills of the Planet that inhabit Finnel's Cosmosphere, the Antibody Brain Ar Ru is one of the highest ranked. As the leader of the Antibodies, she also has the ability of endlessly creating and sending them to annihilate all living beings, making her the Planet's greatest assassin.

Even humankind has recognized the Antibody Brain as a threat, and the countermeasure they developed against her was the γ-Sublimate: in other words, using Saki to neutralize and annihilate her. However, since Ar Ru lies in such a deep level of the Cosmosphere, she ended uniting with Finnel's personality before anyone had noticed it. The effect of erasing Finnel, together with Ar Ru and the Antibodies she produced when Saki used the Hymmnos [Arphage] to neutralize them, was because the unification between the personalities of Ar Ru and Finnel was already at a very advanced state.

One of Finnel's particular skills is performing astrology, her main forte being one called [Starcircling]. This is a method for divining a fortune derived from the Fate Name and birth months of the two people involved. The Fate Name is also called the True Name: an extremely personal information that should never be revealed to anyone besides relatives and wife/husband. In this world, it's such an special matter that no one would ever reveal it to other unnecessarily.

Ever since she emerged from her nurturing capsule, Finnel never had any relatives or family. As much as she liked to perform Starcircling, she never could do it for anyone besides herself. However, Aoto ended telling her his Fate Name without any problems. To Finnel, who always gazed at the night sky alone and performed Starcircling by herself, this meant that for the first time in her life, she had someone else to divine compatibilities. He ended becoming such an special person for her, that not even the passing of time would change that.

[Clustania] ... A Reyvateil nation located inside the Third Tower. Its current leader is the virtual AI program Harvestasha, which also serves as the Tower Administrator. They regard the humans as dangerous beings that destroy the Planet, and thus, they completely oppress any humans that oppose them. They rule this world through terror politics.

[Tripolar Nurturing Capsule] ... The device used to cultivate Pureblooded β-type Reyvateils. They are nurtured inside these capsules until they have a body equivalent to that of a six year old human. Clustania has one room filled with such capsules in the higher floors of the Governorate, which was the place in which both Finnel and Akane were born. By the way, while we are apparently shown an episode in which Finnel destroyed her capsule as she was born, actually that capsule was destroyed during an Antibody attack. As for Soma being accused of having destroyed that capsule, she actually threw a red herring about it.

[Finnel's Personae] ... There several personae in Finnel's Cosmosphere, just like in Saki's. These personae are Yurisica, Soma and Suzunomia, and all of them are embodiments of the Wills of the Planet. Also, in addition to these three personae there is also other Will: the Antibody Brain Ar Ru, who hides herself inside the Soulspace to eventually usurp Finnel's body.

[Heart of the Land] .. It's a high-leveled version of the Triangular Nuclear Loop used as the Heart of the Reyvateils, and as such, it's a gigantic assembly of the Waves of Feelings: the Dynamic H-Waves. One such Heart was successfully created in Metafalss, which was used as the core for the creation of their new continent. While none of these exist in the Third Tower, Cocona Bartel brought one from Metafalss, and it was used to replace the destroyed Planetary Core in the game's climax.

[Great Fang] .... A region inhabited by the humans. It's composed by two gigantic fang-like rock walls that protrude from the land, called the Blue Heaven Peak and the Fallen Heaven Peak. All of the settlements and towns in which the humans live, such as Ciela Gate, the Eternus Shaft, or the Blue Canyon Hamlet, in which Aoto was raised; are located here.

[Hymn Crystal] ... A crystal that has the power of feelings sealed within itself. This is necessary for a Reyvateil to sing Hymmnos songs, which to be done requires the Reyvateil to take in the song through a Download. However, the crystal that was inserted in Finnel is an special one that allows Soma to manifest whenever a different Reyvateil over at Clustania sings the song it contains.

All of Finnel's wishes and desires manifest themselves within her Cosmosphere. Honestly speaking, she has far more secrets that can only be found in her Soulspace than Saki.

This world is always being watched by a gigantic eyeball, which conveys the oppressive conditions in which she was put. Also, since this Cosmosphere itself was structured through masochistic qualities, the worlds to which you arrive until you first reach Lv. 5 are all fake. The true worlds will reveal themselves once you Dive again after you have been forced to restart up to Lv. 2.

Finnel was rendered immobile due to the floor all around her being covered by tacks. Although Aoto told her that the tacks were illusions, Finnel didn't bother to listen, and he had to begin solving the problems in the Cosmosphere by himself. According to Mind Guardian Momoko, Finnel didn't move because she herself didn't want to, but...

For some reason, the setting for this level was styled after an strategy game. Aoto ended giving his help to the army led by Yurisica. The enemy army was commanded by Soma. After persuading Finnel, who had locked herself into a cage, she decided to cooperate with Yurisica's army, believing she had to defeat Soma's army.

This world was set in a boardgame-like world: the players had to advance a number of squares equal to the one they rolled in the roulette, and try to reach the goal. However, no matter how much Finnel tried, she couldn't reach the goal. She was the only one that suffered this problem, so it was obvious the game was rigged. The instigator of this is supposedly the [Consensus] of this world, but...

Lv. 4 was an RPG-like world. In it the hero [AOTO] and the Heroine, Shaman, Princess and Priestess [FINNE] had to defeat the Overlord. However, AOTO harshly remarked that FINNE didn't look like a princess, and that [Servant] would be a more befitting class for her, to which she strangely smiled.

The Lv. 5 Soulspace was modeled after a toilet. Aoto was told that he was being watched from the depths of this world by the [Sublime Will], and was forced to choose between Soma and Finnel. To which conclusion did he arrive after talking to both of them?

Aoto had to search for Finnel, who had disappeared. With the help of Yurisica and Soma, he finally found her, but he was told by Finnel that [I had promised to give over my own body when the time came, so I have to die]. In the Soulspace, Finnel was already sensing what was her fate.

Finnel was being judged in a courtroom for an alleged contract breach. The plaintiff ended being the mystery girl (Suzunomia) and her Mind Guardian Aletheia. Under a large disadvantage, Aoto had to look for clues for a counterattack, which sent him to look through Finnel's past.

The trial was still being held. However, Finnel herself said that she wanted all of the pain of suffering she had received, and decided to remove Aoto since he wasn't acting according to her will. Aoto accepted Finnel's weaknesses, and decided to protect her for the rest of his life. Using the help of the other personae, he tried to convince her.

To protect her own mind, Finnel had to continue being subservient and masochistic, but she finally gave in to her will to live. Thus, she sang a song together with Suzunomia to regenerate her world. Parting with her bitter past, she finally managed to begin walking through a new path together with Aoto.

書き下ろしエピソード2: クラスタニア民の矜持


生まれて初めてクラスタニアを出たフィンネリを待ち受けていた困難の数々。
くじけそうな心を支えたのは、アカネのお守りと、クラスタニア民の誇りだった。

The first time she went outside Clustania after she was born, the only thing that awaited Finnel was a hardship after another. The only things that supported her crushed heart were Akane's protection, and the pride of the Clustanians.

そうだ。

「え……? これ……は?」
「お守りですよ。想いを込めてスペルを唱えれば、一度だけで

「やれやれ、今回も冷や汗がいたよ。でも僕の出番が無くてよ
かった。……さて、と、それじゃ後始末をしに行かないとね」

"Maybe I'll die soon..."
I really began thinking that.
Ferocious fangs and scary howls... I was on the border of a life-threatening crisis. The next second, these scary claws had leapt from the land, and jumped into me!
"Kyaa!!"
Everything was over for me at that moment... or at least that was what I thought. However, there weren't any sings of me being dead. When I came to, a soldier-looking human man was extending his hand to me.
"This isn't the sort of place for a girl to be walking around"
The tension that had taken hold of me finally snapped, and I ended sinking in the ground of that place.

Several days had quickly passed since I left Clustania. I was looking for a city inside a cave, but instead, I quickly got lost and spent several days wandering around the cave, and several times I almost ended becoming food for the wolves that were looking to prey on something. It was embarrassing, but since I was already unable to walk in that moment, the man had to carry me on his back, and somehow, that allowed me to finally arrive to the city. He was worried about me, and even offered to treat me to a meal, but I refused his offer.
"No, it's enough. Thank you for bringing me all the way here"

Because it was shameful enough that I ended being carried in someone's back, and I didn't want to sink even lower to depend on the charity of others. As we say, the proud Clustanians must always keep ourselves dignified and... uhmm.-. anyway, I shouldn't ever feel that kind of feelings. We never must allow ourselves to be friendly to humans. The man told me to be careful with a very bitter smile, and told me something else I've already forgotten as he went away. I felt that I should have been a little more polite, but since the other person was a human, it was okay to me.

...at least I thought that, but I slowly began feeling guilty about that as well. At that moment, I also began feeling useless. I'm sure that if Aki had been in my place, she would have [beautifully dealt] with it without any hesitation. Thus, after walking for many days, I finally reached the [Eternus Shaft].

Eternus Shaft was an extremely messy place, completely different from Clustania. Honestly, the first time I walked through the city I began feeling dizzy due to the place being so dirty and shabby. I thought... it was like comparing Heaven and Hell. Although I began feeling a little better because of finally arriving to the city, that sensation would last much longer. Anyway, I told myself that I needed to rest. Pulling myself together, I began looking for an hotel. However, there weren't any hotels around here: the only lodgings around here were called Inns.

In the outskirts of the courtyard I found such an inn, but it looked so old and run-down that I didn't want to stay in it. However, I was still grateful for having even such a modest place to stay. I thought that the people of Archia and the Great Fang would shelter a Clustanian, so I tried to introduce myself by magnificently saying my name and telling I came from Clustania, but that only got me violently driven out of the Inn. In addition, I got around two or three large men chasing me. They were attempting to get revenge for their friends and family who had been Cleansed the day right before.

It was pretty shocking, and I didn't know what I should do after that. No matter if I was in the middle or the outskirts of the city, everyplace seemed dangerous to me. I didn't have anywhere to go and I felt that I was still being chased, so I ended up trembling all by myself in an alleyway between the houses. My tears began flowing by themselves, and no matter how many efforts I made to hold them back, they didn't stop.

"You should move aside. That's the place where I throw the thrash out"

I still didn't have a place to go. I moved as if I was shaking off something to wipe off my tears. I staggered a little as I got up, but still left that place as fast as I could.

"Wait up! Were you crying?"

That place was a bistro. This shop was called [Yokkora], and its owner, Mrs. Lu, was worried about me after having seen me crying, and thus, she took my into the establishment.

"What happened to you? Would you like to tell me about it?"
"..."
"Well, I won't force you to tell me it if you don't want. That aside, it seems that you haven't eaten anything since some time ago. Wait here a little"

How did she know that...? I really wondered that, but almost immediately after she left, Mrs. Lu came back with a set of food that included a pile of shredded cabbage.

"Okay, gulp it all!"

I was really astonished, not only because of the sheer amount of cabbage, but also because she brought me a kind of food I had never heard of before! Looking at my feelings reflected in my eyes, Mrs. Lu cheerfully laughed before saying this:

"It's nothing for you to worry about, otherwise, you'll make me worry too"

The food she brought me was her famed Yokkora Set. I ate a mouthful of it, and due to how tasty it was, I once again began crying uncontrollably. After that, I slowly began feeling better, and gradually began telling Mrs. Lu about my circumstances. About how I got lost in the caves, and that I didn't have anywhere to go... Of course, I omitted the fact that I'm a Pureblooded β-type from Clustania. After what happened in the Inn, I didn't think that it was a subject I should talk about anymore. However, that was a good decision on my part.

I lied that I was a Third Generation, but I felt that Mrs. Lu completely relaxed after I said that.

"Although you're a Reyvateil like them, I'll never be able to forgive the βs from Clustania..."

Mrs. Lu also began telling me a little from her past: she told me that her husband was killed by a Clustanian assassin a long time ago. Furthermore, that didn't even happen during a war: he was suddenly killed in his sleep during the times of peace.

"I'm sure you're aware of it too, that the Clustanians are rotten to the core. Well, it's gotten very late, so we should go to bed now. If you'd like, you can stay here"

Upon saying that, Mrs. Lu began laughing again. That night, I ended sleeping on a futon in Yokkora's 2nd floor. This was the first time I came to the Great Fang. As I fell asleep, I continued thinking about everything that happened that day. Mrs. Lu was a very nice person, completely different from everything that I was taught about the humans in Clustania. Then, I remembered about the man that had saved me in the cave, and ended regretting the cold way in which I had treating him. Thus, when I got up the following morning, I told this to Mrs. Lu:

"Uh, I will work to pay you back for the food you gave me yesterday! Please, let me work here!"

The Clustanians must keep ourselves dignified, not allow ourselves to be agitated by anything, and keep our hearts as vast as the firmament. We mustn't humiliate ourselves, we mustn't be overly proud, and we must always treat others in the same way in which we wish to be treated... I thought that these principles should be also applied to our interactions with the humans. After all, if we act arrogantly in front of others we're just lying to our principle of treating others in the same way we wish to be treated.

Mrs. Lu laughed loudly.

"You're asking for quite something. You might have thought this was a simple way of getting food for a runaway girl, but the truth is actually a little different. It's okay, anyway. I'll have you work as a waitress for today. Now, we have a very busy day waiting for us, so begin serving the tables!"

And thus, I was allowed to work in the [Yokkora] bistro as a waitress for a day. Working as a waitress should be easy... or at least that's what I initially thought, but I ended having to change that way of thought five minutes later. Carrying a bowl of soup without spilling even a single drop was an unexpectedly hard task... and I also had to remember the orders and who had requested them, and carry them in the same order they got out from the kitchen! If I ever stopped paying attention, I'd misheard the customers' orders. I was even forced to associate with people such as perverted old men. This was a pretty difficult job... Yeah, this went completely against the teachings that I was given by Aki about the Clustanians, and I greatly resented being here at this point in time. And when I thought that, I heard a voice that didn't fit at all in the store: a sweet voice yet severe voice resounding throughout the place.

"Tengai_lx.Constructor_Class.Mizumoritou! You are arrested for committing defamation!"

I was surprised at that sound, because the speaker was nothing else but a Clustanian Reyvateil soldier. And furthermore, she had read aloud a True Name among a large crowd of people...

"What are you people doing!? If you're customers, then sit down and order something. Otherwise, go away right now!"

At some point, Mrs. Lu had gotten outside of the counter and was confronting the Clustanian soldiers.

"Are you the proprietor of this establishment? If you shelter a criminal, then you will be an criminal as well. That person has committed the crime of insolently spitting upon us as we were on our routinely patrol. This is something that cannot be forgiven"
"Oh my, what a narrow mind you have. And well? What you're gonna do to us? You're gonna do something like Cleansing us!? Do it if you dare! However, this is my store. And furthermore, that person is a customer that has ordered one of our meals. You might not know that, but he's one of the greatest people to have gone through our store! If you understand that, go away at once!"

She looked quite threatening. In comparison to the sweet tone she used to attract the customers, she spoke quite bluntly to the Clustanian soldiers. However, the Clustanian soldiers didn't seem fazed at this.

"Do you understand what you have just said? Imprison this woman at once, and send her to the Slave District."
"Wait!!"

I screamed on the spur of the moment. I thought... that I was quite an idiot for having done that. I thought that the Clustanians would have leaped to me because I was one of them. But although I was speaking to the Clustanian soldiers, they didn't notice it at all.

"What is it, girl? If you try to interfere, you will be sent to the Slave District too"
"U-ummm...!!! I think that's awful to Cleanse them for something as pathetic as an spit!"
"What joke is this!? We Clustanians are so proud, that being spit on by someone is beyond inexcusable to us!! You have never experienced such humiliation!!"
"Of course I have!! ...! I... I haven't!! But that's no reason to Cleanse...!"
"Enough already. It seems that the negotiations have failed. We'll send you all right to Hell"

Then, I was astonished because the Clustanians began singing Song Magic inside this small shop! If they released their Songs in a place like this, Yokkora would disappear instantly... The people tried to run away, but the Clustanians had blocked off the entrance, cutting off any possibility of escaping. Then they had an ear-to-ear smile as they saw how panicked the people were, and said this:

"Now we will conduct a local-scale Cleansing. This is for the sake of this world. Repent for your sins as you die!"

In that instant, I remembered something: an amulet that Aki had given me when we parted ways...

"Finnel, since you are a little clumsy, I want you to take this to make it easier for you to carry through your mission to the end"
"Huh...? What is... this?"
"It's an amulet. If you recite the spell while concentrating your feelings on it, it will protect you just once from any kind of explosions or attacks. This is used by the Clustanian soldiers to protect themselves in case anything happens. However, I am not sure if just one will suffice for you..."
"No, just one is more than enough. Thanks... I'll treasure it since it was a gift from you, Aki!"

I didn't know how far it would protect me, but if it was possible, I wanted to protect all of Yokkora... I'm sorry... I didn't think that I'd have to use it so soon... but whenever I remember the anxiety I felt in that instant, I also remembered that I wanted to protect the people from the Great Fang more than anything, even if that took away my life.

Please... Aki! Protect us!!
"Initiate the Cleansing!"
"Rrha ki ra khal hers!! (I'll protect them!!)"

We both said that at almost the same time.

I'm sure that they had released their Song Magic. However, it vanished almost instantly after. Then, Aki's amulet shattered away under my feet...

No one understood at all what happened at that moment, and the silence took over Yokkora for a little while. Then, the first person to open its mouth ended being the Clustanian soldier. She said them... the words I had feared the most.

"That amulet you have... no way, you are a Clustanian!? Why are you interfering with our task! Say your name now!!"

Everything around me became noisy. Mrs. Lu was looking at me as if she were actually seeing who I was for the first time.

"I'm Finnel. And yes, I'm a Clustanian like yourselves! But what's so bad about interfering in this!? I have decided to not overlook such awful things anymore! And yes, I just said that what you're doing is awful! Do you think that you're following the principles of the proud Clustanians by doing these terrible things!?"
"Hmph. We'll report this to the motherland. We'll withdraw for today"

Then the Clustanian soldiers went away.

All of the people in the store were dumfounded for a little while, looking at each other, but then someone shouted in happiness, and the rest of the people formed quite an uproar. I sank to the floor in the same place where I was standing. Yokkora was the first place where I felt some warmth since I had come to the Great Fang, and Mrs. Lu was the first person that was kind to me. But I lied to her. And now that the truth had been exposed... I felt as if I had betrayed her trust. However, it couldn't be really avoided. This was my mess, and so, I had to take care of it myself. I stood at the side of Mrs. Lu, and without raising my face, I faintly said this.

"I'm sorry. I... I lied. Thank you for everything you did for me yesterday. I'll never forget the kindness you showed me... So then..."

I was preparing to run away as fast as I could, but Mrs. Lu firmly held my arm. Then she glared at me as she told me this:

"Wait up! Didn't you say that you were going to work here? Or now that you know what the job entails, you're planning to give up?"
"Umm.... B-but..."
"Ah, it's just like I thought. Young girls shouldn't be hired. But I just thought that you might have liked to work here some more time"
"H...huh!? Then you're saying that...!?"
"Are you going to work!? Or are you not going to work!? I'm very busy right now, so decide quickly!"
"Y-yes! I want to work here!"
"Geez, you should have said this from the beginning. Well then, begin taking the orders from these guys! And send off the guys that haven't bothered to order anything!"

And after saying that, Mrs. Lu went back to the kitchen to deal with the overly busy day. However, just before she went away, she told me this.

"Now I know that Clustania has its bad and good guys, too. Thank you for what you just did"

These words gave me warm feelings that I never had experienced before, and began crying once again. That night, a lone girl was looking at the distance from above Yokkora's roof.

"Oh my, I was drenched on cold sweat from the excitement. However, there wasn't any need for me to appear this time. Well, it seems I don't have to settle everything for her now"

Her bold way of stripping can make you think that she is completely naked when she Purges, which is why Aoto was bewildered by Yurisica. Since she has such a cool personality, she doesn't care much about how she is seen by others. Also, her favorite foods are very unusual, since they aren't what the people from her age would usually eat, such as rice crackers or butterbur bean paste, which have a bitter taste. She is quite unusual due to having such tastes, which are more characteristic of an old man.

The persona of Finnel that controls disasters. Due to having physical abilities that surpass by far the natural ones that Finnel should have, she has been dispatched several times in secret missions at the Great Fang as an Clustanian assassin.

She is basically taciturn and doesn't speak much. Even when she does speak, due to lacking expressiveness, she sounds pretty blunt. While she is quite a capable assassin due to being calm and holding a great judgement capacity, when she gets excited, her self-control goes away, making her prone to commit careless mistakes.

Soma is the persona that has to take charge of the dirtiest works for the Wills of the Planet. Under the name environmental control, she is in charge of provoking disasters such as earthquakes, tornadoes and tsunamis to cull out life. The Planet is in an stage in which it repudiates the life it has created, and Soma is the being recognized to annihilate all of the life in its surface. Because of that, Soma is on the front of the Wills that will annihilate the humans, even if the Consensus hasn't still decided about what they would finally do with them. She is the opposite pole to Filament, who aims to preserve both the existence of the Planet and the life on its surface.

Whenever she is doing her assassin role, she hides her unpainted face by wearing a clown costume. Since the inside of the costume is extremely hot, Soma is always drenched in sweat, which is why there are always puddles of water at her feet whenever she takes it off. However, thanks to that she has always kept her great style, which was good enough to make the main persona of the Soulspace, Finnel, jealous of her slender body. In other words, Soma is quite confident on her own proportions, which allows her to act without caring for how lightly dressed she might be.

While we had several characters that had a Japanese flavor in the series, we haven't actually made one that seemed purely Japanese, right? Because of that, we aimed to make a character that didn't was an arrangement of the style, but was the Japanese style in its purest form. She was born from us wanting to draw a Yamato Nadeshiko-like character.

Suzunomia forgot how to sing because the humans built the Symphonic Power Absorption Facility Moocheriel, and began using it to absorb the Dynamic H-Waves that served as the source for her power. At the same time she was rendered unable to sing, the cycle of life in the Planet stopped, the surface was completely covered by the Sea of Death, and the plants and trees became unable to sprout ever again. However, as the story progressed, the Planet's Consensus began singing again, which allowed her to gradually remember her own existence.

Since she spent so much time isolated and inactive, she has become unable to bear being alone.

One of the Origin Reyvateils, of which there are only three in Ar Ciel. After she was born in Sol Ciel, she was sent over to Sol Cluster to participate in the creation of the Third Tower Harvestasha. Because her body has transformed into the Tower itself, she doesn't have a body in the physical world, unlike the other Origins.

While she is a legendary being in Sol Cluster, her consciousness remained inside the Tower, and after she managed to be resuscitated in the physical world thanks to the efforts of researcher Katene, she began traveling with Aoto and his friends with the goal of completing the then-incomplete Tower.

While she has abilities and knowledge that could be compared to those of the Gods', she has a very blunt personality. Normally she calmly keeps uttering lots of things, although she is also very detached from how the current world works.

On the other hand, their hair lengths greatly differ, and their personalities are opposite poles from each other.

Tyria is one of the three Reyvateil Origins, which were born to create or administrate the Towers. The three Origins were born around 700 years ago, with the first one Eoria (Shurelia) administrating the First Tower in Sol Ciel, and the second one Frelia creating the Second Tower in the land of Metafalss, using Sol Marta. And finally, Tyria was sent to Sol Cluster and created the Third Tower. At the time in which she created the Tower, she transformed into the Tower itself, losing her physical body.

However, this doesn't mean that the creation of the Third Tower went smoothly. While Tyria was in the middle of creating it, she was affected by a certain incident, which made her create the Third Tower incompletely. After this, Tyria continued attempting to successfully complete the Tower, but this wasn't possible to achieve until the current times.

At the time in which Tyria was born, several nations were making a global-scale effort to implement a project to regenerate the ruined and gradually decaying Planet Ar Ciel. Although the world is administrated by the Tower, it actually has a pretty important role in this project as well. The project is called the Ar Ciel: Healing the Planet Project, more commonly known by its acronym AHPP.

While the AHPP HQ was located in Sol Ciel, it was later on moved to Metafalss. It served as the unification point for the parts of the project that were being carried out in each nation. In Sol Cluster, the project progressed with Tyria's coordinator researcher, Kurogane, at its core, who had as his goal the creation of the Third Tower.

Tyria was designed to have an essential role in the AHPP, which also gives her different abilities to the other two Origins. Said abilities are her capacity to [Regenerate the Planetary Core] and [Conversing with the Wills of the Planet]. Both her and the Third Tower were the trump cards for humankind to regenerate the dying Planet.

However, when the time for creating the Tower finally came, it ended in failure. While Tyria was singing [EXEC_REBIRTHIA=PROTOCOL/.], the Hymmnos that would create the Tower, Kurogane killed himself in front of her.

While Tyria had more than enough energy to successfully complete her Tower transformation, Kurogane's death caused such an agitation in her mind that her energy levels dropped below the minimum required for the Song, causing the transformation to be done incompletely.

Due to her having an absolute trust in Kurogane, this was quite a shock to Tyria, and this made her end up sealing off parts of her own memory.

Tyria's duty was administrating the Third Tower, Harvestasha. However, since the Tower ended in an incomplete form, and the world had already been devastated by the great catastrophe of the Grathnode Inferia, the project of the AHPP suffered a great setback. After that, the deficiency in the absolute Symphonic Power estimate levels caused the Tower to slowly stop creating itself, driving Tyria into a practical idle state.

To administrate the Tower and converse with the Planet, the Third Tower was equipped with a Mainframe that had its own personalities. These are Harvestasha XP Edition and Harvestasha VISTA Edition. However, due to the incomplete creation of the Tower, the conversation with the Wills of the Planet never became a reality, and the Harvestashas never got to accomplish their original role.

Then, we come to the current era. Tyria responded to the feelings of Filament, one of Saki's personae that also was a part of the Wills of the Planet, and requested her to go to the Rinkernator. Once there, she was revived and began traveling with Aoto and his friends, starting back up the AHPP that was previously interrupted partway, and that she was supposed to carry out to the end.

Tyria might seem more adult in comparison to the other two Origins, but that's because she doesn't usually show her emotions. On the opposite side to her coolness, she bluntly says everything she has in the head at the moment, which while it seems to make her feel like a very insensitive and blunt person, it actually makes her genuinely honest. She never hides her feelings when she talks to Aoto, which actually bewilders him since she doesn't change her facial expressions when she confesses face-to-face to him.

Despite being so blunt, whenever she acts as one more of the girls that like Aoto, it's obvious that there is a large gap between the way Tyria acts and speaks. That comes from before she transformed in the Tower, and it's due to being raised without receiving any sort of actual love. Tyria herself has an extremely honest personality, but she doesn't understand well how to express her emotions.

As a Reyvateil Origin, Tyria became a pretty popular research topic after she disappeared by transforming into the Tower. Especially when it came to the analysis of her Soulspace Map, which allowed confirm the existence of beings that had extremely high wave frequencies, in which humans are unable to Dive.

As for the Soulspaces of Saki and Finnel, when Hikari Gojo said that "they greatly resembled that legendary Reyvateil", it's pretty obvious that he meant Tyria when he said "legendary Reyvateil".

Furthermore, Kiraha, who promoted the implementation of the Planet Regeneration Project in the Archia Think Tank; and his son Katene, both conducted their own independent research on Tyria. The results of that research was what allowed to regenerate Tyria at the Rinkernator through an Holography (a duplicate body), giving her a human-shaped terminal, and successfully allowing her to manifest in the physical world once again.

Kurogane was Tyria's dedicated researcher, and was the main driver for the implementation of the AHPP over at Sol Cluster. He was the founder of the Kurogane Laboratories, which were dissolved after his death and rose from its remnants as the Archia Think Tank, making him effectively the first member of the Think Tank. In a way, we could say that his thoughts and the results of his research still live on in the current Sol Cluster.

Kurogane also was the person in which Tyria had the most trust of all her acquaintances. Since Tyria was never allowed to have much contact with other people, and spent long times with Kurogane, she came to think of him as her own guardian.

On the other hand, you might be wondering how Kurogane thought of Tyria. While it's true that he served as a sort of fatherly figure for her, it unfortunately never reached the same extent as the relationship between Eoria and her dedicated researcher Eleno, who loved her as if she was her own daughter. To Kurogane, Tyria was no more than an research subject. The true intentions he had when he killed himself when the Tower was being created was merely to show the results of his research to the AHPP HQ, which was no more than an expression of his egoism. His actions caused a lot of suffering to Tyria during most of her early life, since he continually performed experiments on her without caring for her well-being or safety. From this, you can infer that he had a very selfish and eccentric personality.

However, Tyria genuinely had a very deep understanding of his complex personality and behavioral principles, which was what allowed her to trust so much in Kurogane. And thus, the feelings she has for Kurogane haven't changed at all during the last 700 years. However, her blind devotion and reliance in Kurogane have caused Tyria to not have anyone else in which she could trust, making her feel extremely lonely.

You can take a glimpse of how the cities from 700 years ago were if you Dive into Tyria.

While Tyria was born to sing the Hymmnos that was crafted for creating the Tower, [EXEC_REBIRTHIA=PROTOCOL/.], the creation of the Tower ended in failure, and she forgot the second half of the Hymmnos. This was because Tyria herself sealed her own painful memories, making her lose her memories about Kurogane's suicide together with the Hymmnos. When Aoto and his friends entered the Tower, what they could hear being sung at the moment was this very same Hymmnos, but since Tyria can't remember the second half, at a certain point the song returns to the beginning, eternally continuing to loop.

Tyria also had the mission of singing the Hymmnos that would allow them to converse with the Wills of the Planet. Said Hymmnos is [EXEC_COSMOFLIPS/.], which has the effect of conversing with a Will of the Planet, and absorbing it into Tyria's Soulspace to trigger a fusion between them. Although it was supposed to be Downloaded into Tyria 700 years ago, it was intentionally forgotten by Kurogane. Later on, Raphael from the Archia Think Tank gave it to Tyria, and she sung it to fuse with one of the highest-ranking Wills of the Planet: Ar Ru.

Tyria continually mentions the agepan as if it was her most favorite food. However, she never actually got to eat it. Just before she became the Tower, she wanted to try the agepan that had become so popular among the people, but finally she never got to try it, and lost her body. When Katene created her Holography and she finally manifested in the real word, the first thing she said when she awakened was "Agepan", showing much she regretted this.

She is the Administrator for the First Tower of Ar tonelico, located in Sol Ciel, and has kept protecting the lives of the humans up to the current times. However, from the lessons she got from the destruction of the world by the Grathnode Inferia a long time ago, she began to feel the excess of science and technology as something dangerous, and rigidly administrates the region of Sol Ciel together with its ruling organization, Platina.

[Grathnode Inferia] ... An incident from around 700 years ago. This was an unprecedented catastrophe that occurred in 3040 AD. Due to disruptive activities performed by opposing forces, the power from the First Tower ran without control causing several cataclysms in the Planet, driving humanity almost to the point of extinction. After the Grathnode Inferia, the Planet's surface was covered by a poisonous gas layer called the [Sea of Death], while the dangerous [Blastline] was formed by the energy of the plasma that curled in the skies. Now, the only places in which humankind can survive in Ar Ciel are the three Towers and the extremely small regions surrounding them.

書き下ろしエピソード3:ティリアとシュレリア
オリジンとして生まれ、まったく異なる境遇で育ったティリアとシュレリア。
ふたりが一緒に過ごした、ほんの短い間の大切な思い出。

Both Tyria and Shurelia were born as Origins, but were raised in completely different circumstances.
While they both spent a very short time together, that ended becoming precious memories for them.

「でも、年上の人の事をおばあちゃんって言うの
よ? 私7歳だもの」
「でも、おばあちゃんじゃないもん!」
 ティリアはその話を無視して、ふと気づいたよう

「ええっ!? でも、お父さんがここで待ってなさい

「それなら待っててもイイと思うけど、私は出掛け

「いけない、そろそろ帰らないとクロガネが帰って

まい込んだ。

Tyria and Shurelia had met each other a few times. With the exception of Frelia, who was sent to a distant place as soon as she was put into her tripolar resonance incubator, the Origins were all raised inside the Tower. The first time that Tyria met Shurelia, she was at Eleno's side, and gave her the impression that she always was very happy. The second time they met, Shurelia seemed to be very tired, which was because her hard-wiring to the Tower had already begun. During these times, Tyria was always at Kurogane's side. While the life without Kurogane was still a large unknown to Tyria, she immediately inferred that Shurelia was far happier than her whenever she was with Eleno. However, the only chance they actually had to talk was three years before the Grathnode Inferia, and it was something that happened immediately before Tyria was sent away from El Elemia.

That day, Kurogane had an important meeting, and would be absent for a day. Likewise, Eleno had to attend an important meeting too, and would be absent for a day. Tyria was left playing alone inside one of the Rest Rooms of the Tower. These were special daycare centers in which the parents left their children (most likely, most of the people who worked in the Tower had children) during the times in which they couldn't be with them. However, that day no one else was around. For some reason, it had a sign outside that read "Closed due to maintenance", but of course, it was done on purpose. Yes, whenever Tyria was around, no other children were in that place, meaning that it was reserved expressly for her. This caused a great dissatisfaction to Tyria, who always had seen several children in this place playing around. Now that no one was here, it had become a very boring place. This was the kind of life that Tyria had ever since she was born. Then, a sole child came into that place, a child whose name Tyria knew.

Although her face didn't change at all, she immediately said her name in a cheerful voice.
"Ah, granny Eoria"
"I'm Shurelia! And I'm not a granny. I'm 9 years old!"
"But aren't you supposed to call your elders grannies? I'm 7 years old"
"But I'm not a granny!"
Tyria ignored that conversation, and immediately went to the door from which Shurelia had entered. However, the door didn't open.
"Hey, granny Shurelia. Did you come in from this door? Then you can go out through it?"
"I'm telling you I'm not a granny. And of course I can go out, using this secret card key"
"Secret?
"Yeah, secret. Dad told me that I can't show it or give it to anyone"
"Show me it"
"Okay"
Shurelia then gave Tyria the key. Tyria held it in front of the door, and it immediately opened. Tyria then kept staring at the card for a while, and looked a Shurelia with a large grin as she thought up something.
"Hey, sis Shurelia. This card can open all sorts of doors you find when you go out from your room or other faraway places?"
Despite this being a pretty simple logical conclusion, Shurelia was amazed.
"How did you know that? You're very smart! Uhmm..."
"I'm Tyria"
"Tyri!"
"Okay then, sis Shurelia. Let's explore the Tower"
"Huh!? But Dad told me to wait for him here..."
"Then I think you'd be better waiting here, but I'll go out anyway. And if he knew that you lost the card, wouldn't you be scolded?"
As soon as she finished saying that, Tyria began running.
"T-that would be bad! I'll go too!!"
Shurelia then began running behind her.

This was the first time that Tyria had complete freedom, without Kurogane around. Normally, Shurelia and Eleno were having fun in the orgel room or shopping around, while Tyria was always being dragged out to be experimented on. Shurelia was always excited about these moments with Eleno, but didn't show that emotion in her face. She calmly began to laugh sarcastically, as per her peace-loving idiot mentality. However, while this should have allowed later on to see a part of Shurelia's frightening abilities, it was better that no one noticed it at the moment.

"Hey, Tyri. Where we're going?"
"To Area A26, Sector 31: the Ash Flora and Fauna Breeding Park"
"What!? But I've been told that I can't go there"
"How strange. They told me that same thing"

Since the life mechanisms of the Reyvateils weren't very well understood at the moment, it was desirable for them to not have any physical contact with any organic matter. This was because no one knew if they could have any different microorganisms from the humans inside them, like the ones that animals naturally have.

On the way, they found several candy shops that had very tasty-looking sweets, and using Shurelia's card, they bought a bento. Because Shurelia was very moved and said "Beautiful!! Cute!!" upon seeing a gigantic, jewel-box like candy, the shopkeeper gladly gave them one free as a bonus. Tyria thought "Whoa", and they continued their way. However, that didn't end here. Whenever Tyria took her eyes away from her, Shurelia disappeared, and she had to look around for her. When she finally found Shurelia, she was at some store, and insisted in buying a souvenir before going. Because Tyria was greatly interested in her behavior, she continued acting as if she didn't pay any attention to Shurelia, and let her get lost and arrive to the nearest store, while actually watching her from behind. The next time, she went to a Churoky (Fried Bean Donuts) store, and the shopkeeper allowed them to see how he made the donuts due to the great interest she had on this. Shurelia continually said things like "Amazing!" "Cool!!", which greatly pleased the shopkeeper. This also was very interesting to Tyria, and she thought that she would want to try making them herself at some time.

While this allowed Shurelia to get a Churoky donut, Tyria then insisted on "dividing it", and grabbing the donut with her right hand, she split it right in half using passing her left thumb through the middle, naturally claiming the largest part for herself. This was the first time she ate one of these donuts, so she was very excited, and when she finally tried it, she was very surprised at how tasty it was.

And finally, they arrived to the Ash Flora and Fauna Breeding Park. Shurelia hesitated until the very end, but since Tyria had already gone in, she didn't any other choice than to go in too.

Inside the area, there were several kinds of animals and plants, especially animals that they never saw unless it was as toys, such as cats and dogs. Their cuteness drew both girls closer to them. This was quite a shock for both of them. Tyria honestly thought that they couldn't move her because she already had read a lot about these animals, but even her heart got unexpectedly moved, which led her to calmly conclude that [she was getting stimulated]. A girl that worked as a breeder in the place came out before the two excited girls, carrying in her hands a little white animal. It had very long ears, and round eyes, giving it a very cute appearance. Tyria was very surprised when she saw it.

"Are you... raising it to be food...?"

However, Shurelia screamed "Cuteeee!", and went running to her. Tyria tagged along because she wanted to make sure about the use they were going to give to the animal. The breeder squatted and showed them the animal. Shurelia's eyes sparkled once again as she screamed "Cute!" over and over. Tyria saw the animal as she thought "Oh, my".

However, even Tyria was defeated by the cuteness of the small animal, and instantly cracked before it. She even had to admit that... she had been defeated. Even thinking itself that something was cute was somewhat embarrassing to her, but since this animal was cuter than anything she had seen before....

At that moment, Tyria remembered something about Shurelia. If either her or Shurelia begged for something, she thought that "They'll give it to us!" Tyria then said in the cutest way she could:

"Please, let me carry it"

While she said it with a sweet tone, her face remained completely expressionless, meaning that she wasn't given the animal, and instead, she got told "I can't, since it's property of this park". Furthermore, Shurelia warned her saying "Yeah, Tyri. We shouldn't carry off as if it was ours since it belong to the park, no?", which strangely irritated her. However, something shocking happened immediately after. Shurelia had become completely unwary of the animal, and then, she herself asked the girl "Please, let me carry it!" While the girl said "It's almost lunch time, so I can't", the extremely cute in which Shurelia had asked for it finally outlasted her, and allowed them to have the animal for a little while. Tyria was genuinely surprised at the ability that Shurelia had... to move the people. Then she understood that she herself lacked that ability.

"Hey, Tyri. How it's this cute thing called?"
"A bunny"
"Hehe, so you're called a bunny! Pleased to meet you! You're so cute. I want to carry you home and sleep with you"

However, she had to deny herself that she was told that it would be used for making food. Tyria understood very well that the bunny had gotten emotionally attached to Shurelia, because that was the sort of abilities she had. She was able to slightly feel the frequencies of Dynamic H-Waves that no human could see or hear.

"Bunny, bunny... hmm, but the bunnies don't talk, Tyri? They don't say anything?"

Tyria was shocked. Yes, she had just noticed for the first time that Shurelia wasn't capable of conversing with other life forms through their wave movements.

"They do"
"How they do? What they say?"
"Hmmm, that's... hmm..."

Actually, Tyria's knowledge didn't go so far. Strictly speaking, it was natural for Tyria to converse with it through their hearts, without saying even one word or making any sounds. However, since Shurelia wasn't capable of doing this, she couldn't understand anything that weren't normal cries or sounds.

However, at this point in time, Tyria would have taken as an humiliation saying "I don't know". And furthermore, after having witnessed Shurelia's control abilities, which she couldn't compare to her extensive knowledge, she would do whatever to demonstrate her intelligence. If she thought hard and long enough, she would find a solution. And then, she finally remembered something from some time ago.

"Kyukyu"
"...Kyukyu?"
"Yeah. The sound bunnies make is kyukyu"
"Okay! Kyukyu! How cute!! Kyukyu! Kyukyu! Pleased to meet you, bunny!"
"..."

After this, Tyria didn't say anything else, and began thinking. She then remembered that she learned that sound from this: sometime back, she went to eat with Kurogane to a restaurant, and upon ordering a fresh rabbit dish, she heard the death agony screams of the poor rabbit.

While both girls continued playing and having fun for a while, they suddenly came to their senses, and noticed how much time had passed since they first came.

"Oh no. I must go back before Kurogane returns, or I'll get scolded"
"We're in trouble, Dad will get angry at me, too!"

Because of that, they both retraced their steps. They had difficulty even breathing due to the fear during their return. Tyria continued running back, while she prayed that Kurogane hadn't arrived to the daycare before her. However, this didn't mean that she didn't notice other things. When she was halfway through her way, she suddenly noticed that Shurelia wasn't with her anymore. "Huh?" she thought... but immediately told herself that she would be okay. Then, she returned by herself to the daycare center.

She safely arrived to the daycare center, to which Kurogane hadn't arrived yet.

"I'm safe"

Tyria emotionlessly released a sigh of relief, and then she noticed that she still had in her hands Shurelia's (or strictly speaking, Eleno's) card. She had the feeling that she had forgotten something important, but she didn't mind it much, and stored the card in her pocket.

One of the highest-ranked Wills of the Planet. As a being faithful to the Planet's Consensus, she creates the Antibodies and commands them as the Antibody Brain, which was the role for which she was born. To protect Ar Ciel from further destruction caused by the humans, she has planned to reset the cycle of life in the Planet. While she has a way of thought completely different from the humans, she was persuaded by Aoto and his friends and finally fused with Tyria. Her formal name is [Ar_Ru], but she immediately got attached to the nickname that Tyria gave her: [Arru].

Since we established her as the most contradictory persona of the Planet in regards to the humans, we gave her a devilish appearance. It was from this that we added the dragons entwined around her body, which would only be the only thing remain once she undressed...which was the original idea that Nagi-san had. However, we also had the idea of the dragons running away, so we could say that Nagi-san's idea was rejected (*laughs*).

Ar Ru is a Will of the Planet that was born to substitute Suzunomia when she was forgotten by the Consensus. Because she has the role of producing Antibodies to protect Ar Ciel, she has been recognized and marked by the Archia Think Tank as the Antibody Brain. While to Ar Ru the living beings are targets to exterminate, she has great respect for the humans, and has recognized them as very interesting beings. Due to that, her killing of the people can be explained in practical terms as a necessary evil she performs in order to protect herself (the Planet).

While she has a way of thought that surpasses that of humans by much, because she is an extremely shy person, you can feel from her appearance that she has an extreme repulsion to Purging. However, her reaction to Purging comes from having been hiding in Finnel's Soulspace and traveling with Aoto and company. During that time, she made a great effort to understand the way of thought and wishes of the humans, which had the result of greatly softening her attitude.

When you Dive into Tyria, you will see the memories from 700 years ago that she recorded into the data world of the Tower, called the Binary Field. It has the particularity of being structured like a visual novel due to Tyria's playful heart. Aoto appears here experiencing on his own body the things that happened back to [Aoto Masakado], and he can occasionally interfere in these events to change their outcome.

Masakado had the mission of allowing Tyria to safely become the Tower, and protecting her from any opposition forces to the AHPP. However, when Tyria was finally creating the Tower, and unforeseen incident occurred, which caused the project to end in failure...

という言葉からも、当時の境遇が想像
できるだろう。ティリアが敢えてヒュ
一マにしたのは、レーヴァテイルの惨
めな姿をアオトに見せたくないとの
想いからだったのかもしれない。

A metropolis in which several skyscrapers are lined up, a perfect reproduction of a city from 700 years ago. The Hymmas depicted in this world are actually arrangements of Reyvateils that lived in this time, and are based on the memories of the Reyvateils being bought and sold like tools. From the words "the human that lives with several Hymmas is a good person", you can imagine what sort of environment existed back then. The fact that Tyria chose to include Hymmas could have been from the feelings she had of not wanting to show Aoto the miserable way in which the Reyvateils lived 700 years ago.

プールで溺れた将門を救い出す。息が止まった
将門のため、ティリアが選んだ行動は…

Saving Masakado from drowning in the pool. Since he had stopped breathing, Tyria had to...

塔になる前日、人の姿でいられる最後の夜。今
晩はずっとそばにいてましいと将門にせがむ。

The day previous to her transformation in the Tower, and her last night in a humanoid shape. She badgered Masakado into being at her side for this night, which she wanted to last forever.

素直だが感情の表現は苦手。アオトへの気持
ちをうまく伝えられず、「大好き」と繰り返す。

While she is very honest, Tyria is pretty bad at expressing her emotions. Since she couldn't express very well her feeling to Aoto, she had to repeat "I like you" over and over.

旅立つアオトと離れたくないがため、密航(?)
を敢行するティリア。塔の管理はどうするの?

Not wanting to be away from Aoto, Tyria decidedly smuggled (?) herself. How would she administrate the Tower like this?

薄く、ぶっきらぼうな性格は現代と同じ。

The Tyria from 700 years ago. To protect her from the Anti-AHPP, who opposed the construction of the Tower, it was necessary to change her name and make her attend the Clover Academy. As the day in which she would transform into the Tower drew closer, the Anti-AHPP became aware of her whereabouts, and several times attempted to kill her. With a poor ability to express her emotions and extreme bluntness, her personality was exactly the same as in the current times.

凪良氏かサキのキャラクターデザインをするにあたり、もっともデザインが難航したとい
うのはP.016の土屋氏のコメントのとおり。ここては、現在と大幅に違う初期稿を公開!

When Mr. Nagi was tasked to do the character design for Saki, it was quite a difficult travel for him, as you might have read from the comments given by Mr. Tsuchiya in Page 16. Here, we will publish the initial designs, which might surprise you from how different they were to the currently used one!

1) 胸元のリホンに名残があるが、そ
れ以外は完全に別人という印象の
デザイン。これもかわいい!

While the only thing that remains from this design is the ribbon in the chest, it gives a impression of a completely different person. However, it's pretty cute as well!

2) カラーワークこそ決定稿のサキに
近い雰囲気たか、顔も服装も決定
稿とはかなり印象か異なる。

While from the coloring this design has a closer atmosphere to Saki's final design, the face and clothes give a very different impression from the final design.

3) メモにもあるように、天女と羽衣を
モチーフとした和風テイスト。やや
スズノミアに近いたろうか。

While this one was made in a memo, the celestial maiden and angel's robe motif give it a very Japanese taste. Maybe this design is somewhat close to Suzunomia's.

4) 左のデザインのパーシ案。タスキ
ブラとフントシというマニアックさ
に加え、照れ顔がなんとも……。

The design on the left was the plan for the purge system. The tasuki bra and the fundoshi were added by personal interests, but not the blushing face...

5) アップで留めた髪型や全体的な彩
色の方向性など、どちらがというと
フィンネルを思わせるデザイン。

Due to the hanged-up hairstyle and the overall coloring trend, this design might end reminding you of Finnel in some way.

6) こちらはサイドで髪をまとめたバ一
ジョン。衣装の主線からは、着物と
ドレスのミックスにも見える。

This is another version of the previous design with the hair gathered on one side. From the central line of the costume, you can see that it's a mix between normal clothes and dresses.

7) 巫女装束を彷彿させる、純和風な
ラフ画。濃く、長い髪から受ける印
象もあって、すっかり別人だ。

A purely Japanese-styled draft that reminds of the costumes worn by the Miko. The abundant and long hair definitely give the impression of a completely different person.
