Prelude

Show/Hide Story Chapter

A:???
—Heed my words.

A:???
My will creates your body, and your sword creates my destiny. If you heed the Grail's call, and obey my will and reason, then answer me.

A:???
I hereby swear.
That I shall defeat all evil in the world.

A:???
But let thine eyes be clouded with the fog of turmoil and chaos. Thou art trapped in a cage of madness, and I the summoner who holds thy chains–

A:???
Seventh Heaven clad in the great words of power!
Come forth from the circle of binding, Guardian of the Scales—!

B:???
Ah!

A:???
–Thank you for coming, my fellow Servants.
I am your Master.

A:???
You know why you were summoned, yes?
Destruction and slaughter, those are your orders.

A:???
If a city is reveling in spring, destroy it.
If a town is celebrating spring, devastate it.

A:???
No matter how evil or cruel, God will forgive your every transgression.

A:???
Should He mete out punishment,
that is fine in its own way.

A:???
For this is no more than a means of proving God's existence and His love.

A:???
–Now, then, Gilles.
Please bring him here.

Gilles
As you wish.

A:???
I trust you have not harmed him, Gilles?

Gilles
No, of course not.
Have you considered what you wish done with him?

A:???

Gilles
Oh, my. Do you require suggestions from me?

A:???
Oh, you have noticed my distress in your infinite concern for me?

A:???
—Don't be absurd.
If you continue this foolishness, I'll kill you, Gilles.

A:???
When you are eating a meal, do you think about how you use your fork?

A:???
This is the same. What I do with him is a matter so trivial it does not merit any thought.

H:???
...Wh-What's going on?
Where am I, and who are you people?

H:???
Answer me! Are you deaf?
You there—Eep!

A:???
Oh, Pierre! Bishop Pierre Cauchon!
How I have missed you!

A:???
A day has not gone by when your face has not crossed the mind of Jeanne d'Arc!

Pierre Cauchon
It can't be.
It can't be, it can't be, it can't be, it can't be!

Pierre Cauchon
Y-Y-Y-You're–Jeanne d'Arc?!
Impossible! This can't be possible!

Pierre Cauchon
I thought you died three days ago!
I thought I killed you! I thought–

Jeanne Alter
"That you should be in Hell?"
Perhaps I am, Your Grace.

Pierre Cauchon
This is a dream. A nightmare.
What else could it be but a nightmare!

Gilles
Oh dear, he's started to flee from reality.
This won't do at all. We must snap him out of this.

Pierre Cauchon
Aiiee!
E-E-Eeeee!

Jeanne Alter
What will you do, Your Grace?

Jeanne Alter
Jeanne d'Arc, whom you accused of heresy, stands here before you.

Jeanne Alter
Should you not grip your crucifix and offer up a prayer to God?

Jeanne Alter
Should you not mock me? Scorn me? Abuse me?
Trample me? And tell everyone the wicked Jeanne d'Arc is here!

Jeanne Alter
Should you not roar like the brave lion you are?!
Go on, do it! Do it! Do it!

Pierre Cauchon
Spa–

Jeanne Alter
Spa?

Pierre Cauchon
S-Spare me.
Please spare me.

Pierre Cauchon
I'll do anything.
Spare me, I beg of you!

Jeanne Alter
—Ha ha ha ha ha!
Did you hear that, Gilles?

Jeanne Alter
"Spare me, spare me," he says! This bishop who tied me up, mocked me, and burned me alive!

Jeanne Alter
As if that were nothing!

Jeanne Alter
The bishop who told me with kind eyes, that I was going to be killed. Is now begging for his life!

Jeanne Alter
Oh—The sadness is making me want to cry.
After all, that won't save anything.

Jeanne Alter
Your paper-thin faith won't reach the Heavenly Father.
Belief that is light as a feather won't blossom anywhere.

Jeanne Alter
Someone who has forsaken God, and clings to his life by begging a witch, is unfit to be called a believer.

Jeanne Alter
Do you understand, Your Grace? You just gave testimony that you are now one of the heretics.

Jeanne Alter
That is why I'm so sad.
I think I might laugh until madness consumes me.

Jeanne Alter
Now, think back, Your Grace.
You know what sentence awaits heretics, don't you?

Pierre Cauchon
...

Pierre Cauchon
N-No, no, no!
Spare me... Please, spare me!

Jeanne Alter
I'm so sorry, I'm afraid I ran out of salvation today.
Indulgences are not for sale in this era.

Jeanne Alter
Now—Shall we start at your feet?
If I was burned alive by holy flames...

Jeanne Alter
...Then your body shall be scorched by the flames of Hell.

Pierre Cauchon
Aaaaaiiiiieeeee–!!

Jeanne Alter
...Not even the ashes remain, I see.
I apologize for taking up your time, Gilles.

Gilles
What do you mean? That was a meaningful punishment.
Now what should we do with the other clergy.

Jeanne Alter
Good question, it's too much to question them all.
Just feed the clergy to them.

Jeanne Alter
Rejoice, my ignoble Servants!
The surviving clergy are yours.

Jeanne Alter
I, your Master, Jeanne d'Arc shall forgive you all.

Jeanne Alter
Devour their souls.
Feast on their flesh.

Jeanne Alter
Savor their blood. After all, our manifestation is no different than that devil, Dracul.

Jeanne Alter
I have but one order.
Wipe out this country, this mistake that is France.

Jeanne Alter
Overrun it, trample it, reap it.
Let us begin with our dear Orleans.

Jeanne Alter
We shall return its fruitful land to a bare wasteland.

Jeanne Alter
Age, gender, and religious beliefs are of no importance.
Make sure you kill them equally.

Jeanne Alter
That is the only order I give you as your Master.

Jeanne Alter
To that end, I have given you all the attributes of a Berserker.

Jeanne Alter
You may be a saint, or a hero, but now you shall dance with your broken soul.

Jeanne Alter
Berserk Saber.

Jeanne Alter
Berserk Archer.

Jeanne Alter
Berserk Lancer.

Jeanne Alter
Berserk Rider.

Jeanne Alter
Berserk Caster.

Jeanne Alter
Berserk Assassin.

Jeanne Alter
And him, whom I summoned instead of Berserker, and myself.

Jeanne Alter
I shall pass down judgement as this world's Ruler.
Humanity has no value, for it failed to prove its love for our Lord.

Jeanne Alter
—They are guilty to a horrifying extent.
Humanity is equally guilty, sinner and saint alike.

Jeanne Alter
So we shall kill them all.
I will not tolerate a single one escaping.

Gilles
Oh...Oh! Such resolve!
Such truth without a slightest doubt!

Gilles
Such is the saint of salvation! The saint who believes in our Lord, and saves our people!

Gilles
You have returned... My light has returned...
You have truly been reborn, Jeanne!

Gilles
Then I too, shall rise again as your general!
First, we need a symbol... Our army must have a flag!

Gilles
Jeanne, what shall we use as our emblem?
A demon, perhaps? Or what about—

Jeanne Alter
In that case, let's make it a dragon. Be it coincidence or providence, this summoning has brought many with close ties to dragons.

Jeanne Alter
In the name of dragons, the symbol of catastrophe,
we will burn this world to the ground.

Jeanne Alter
Oh, I have one more order. Laugh. As if you are enjoying yourselves from "the bottom of your heart."

Jeanne Alter
Heh heh heh.
Ah ha ha–Hahahahaha! Ahahahahahaha!!

Jeanne Alter
Wonderful! This is wonderful, Gilles!
I've never enjoyed myself this much in my entire life!

Gilles
YesYes, I suppose it is.
That is the way it should be.

Gilles
You were put on a pedestal, made a symbol,
exploited, and cast aside by the people—

Gilles
That is why you are righteous. There is no one who could pass judgment over your heart of hearts!

Fou
Fou?
Kyu, fou?

  1. Good morning, Fou.
  2. I think I just had a bad dream...
  Select: Good morning, Fou.

  Select: I think I just had a bad dream...

===Branch End===

Fou
Mew, fou!
Kyau, kyau!

Mash
Good morning, Senpai.
It's finally time for the briefi—Eek!

Fou
Kyuuuuu...

Mash
I'm sorry, Fou, I couldn't get out of the way.
Still, I'm glad to see you so full of energy in the morning.

Mash
You too, Senpai.
Did you sleep well last night?

  1. Like a log.
  2. I didn't get much sleep...
  Select: Like a log.
Mash
I'm glad to hear it.
They say it takes talent to get a good night's sleep.
Mash
I know you just woke up, but it's briefing time.
We should hurry.

  Select: I didn't get much sleep...
Mash
...Oh, I forgot you sleep better on the floor or a tatami mat instead of a bed. That was my mistake, I'll make arrangements.
Mash
Still, the Doctor's briefing is about to start.
Let's try to power through the sleepiness.

===Branch End===

Dr. Roman
Good morning, Fujimaru.
Did you sleep well?

Dr. Roman
Let's get right to the briefing, then.

Dr. Roman
For starters... Oh right,
let me go over what I want you to do again.

Dr. Roman
First, the investigation and correction of the singularities.
It is humanity's critical turning point in that era.

Dr. Roman
If it were not for that, we could never have come as far as we have. It is the pivotal "event" in human history.

Dr. Roman
You must travel to that era, investigate what it is,
figure it out, and then correct it.

Dr. Roman
Otherwise, 2019 will never come.
Humanity will be extinct in 2018.

Dr. Roman
That is your first objective.
The basic principle of the upcoming operation.

Dr. Roman
The operation's second objective is Investigate the "Holy Grail."

Dr. Roman
This is just my speculation, but the singularities must be related to the Holy Grail.

Dr. Roman
The "Holy Grail" is a relic that can grant wishes. A vessel that contains tremendous amounts of magical energy.

Dr. Roman
Lev probably got his hands on the Grail in some form, and misused its power.

Dr. Roman
Rather, it's impossible to travel through time and change the past without the Grail. Seriously.

Dr. Roman
You will run into intel regarding the Grail during your investigation of the singularity.

Dr. Roman
Even if you correct history, leaving the Grail will put us back to square one.

Dr. Roman
You must either secure the Holy Grail, or destroy it.

Dr. Roman
Those are the two objectives of this operation.
Is everything clear so far?

  1. Crystal clear.
  2. Sorry, could you go over it again?
  Select: Crystal clear.
Dr. Roman
Glad to hear it.

  Select: Sorry, could you go over it again?
Dr. Roman
All right, fine.
But pay attention this time, okay?

===Branch End===

Dr. Roman
...And now, there's one other thing I want you to do in addition to the mission.

Dr. Roman
That said, it's nothing major.
It's for after you Rayshift to that era.

Dr. Roman
I want you to find a leyline and make a summoning circle. Just like you did in Fuyuki.

Dr. Roman
Unlike Fuyuki, we could probably make do as-is if it's just telepathic communication...

Dr. Roman
But to transport supplies, it won't work without establishing a summoning circle.

Dr. Roman
Just like before, once Mash sets up her Noble Phantasm it will act as a catalyst and trigger the summoning circle.

Dr. Roman
Once you do that, you can summon Servants at will.

Dr. Roman
Of course, what you summon will probably be Servants closely tied to that time and place.

Dr. Roman
So keep doing that to bolster your forces.
Understood?

Mash
...Understood.
Before all else, we'll try to establish a base camp first.

Mash
What we'll need is a place to relax, a structure with a roof, a home to come back to. Right, Master?

  1. Yes, I'll be counting on you.
  2. Right. You have a way with words, Mash.
  Select: Yes, I'll be counting on you.

  Select: Right. You have a way with words, Mash.

===Branch End===

Mash
H-Hearing you say that, really means a lot to me.

Mash
I know I'm still an inexperienced Servant,
but you can count on me. I'll be giving it my all!

Fou
Kyuu!

Dr. Roman
Umhm. To see Mash, who's serious, quiet, and frankly,
kind of mysterious, grow up to be such a fine lady...

Da Vinci
Hey, get over yourself.
How long are you gonna keep me waiting?

Dr. Roman
Oops, you're right.
You didn't show any interest so I forgot you were there.

Dr. Roman
Allow me to introduce you, Fujimaru.
He...no, she...er, it? Um, who?

Dr. Roman
Sheesh. Standing there is Chaldea's pride and joy,
the head of our Engineering Department, Leonardo.

Dr. Roman
As you can tell, they are quite unusual.
Of course, not a human... Let's not get into that.

Dr. Roman
The reason being—

Mash
...A Servant.
Senpai, this is incredible. This person is a Servant!

Da Vinci
Right you are~♪ I'm Chaldea's honorary tech advisor, I normally go by Leonard here.

Da Vinci
But as you can see, I am the proud inventor of the Renaissance! The one-and-only Leonardo da Vinci in the flesh!

Da Vinci
You can just call me Da Vinci. You don't get to see many pretty ladies like myself around here right?

  1. Huh? Pretty lady?
  2. Da...Vinci?
  Select: Huh? Pretty lady?

  Select: Da...Vinci?

===Branch End===

Mash
This is strange. It's abnormal. It's wrong!
I mean, Leonardo da Vinci should be a man—

Da Vinci
You should always question conventional wisdom.
But, is it really that important?

Da Vinci
Who was the first one that claimed I was a man or a woman? Sheesh, for crying out loud.

Da Vinci
I pursue beauty with both my inventions and art.
It was I who personified all ideals—all beauty.

Da Vinci
To me, the ideal beauty is the Mona Lisa. That being the case—See? Isn't this simply an unavoidable result?

Fou
Fou...

Dr. Roman
I like to think of myself as a scholar, but this guy's pet theories go way over my head.

Dr. Roman
He's the only pervert twisted enough to turn himself into the Mona Lisa, just because he loves the Mona Lisa.

Da Vinci
Heh heh. Are you sure about that, Dr. Roman?

Da Vinci
As cultures mature, anything is possible. The desire to become a beautiful girl might one day be the norm.

Dr. Roman
That might be true, but which time period's Heroic Spirit are you?

Da Vinci
Genius has nothing to do with time period, Doctor.
Fujimaru, you'd do well to remember that too.

Da Vinci
You will encounter many Heroic Spirits who were artists.
Every one of them is as splendid and eccentric!

Dr. Roman
Are you kidding me?
Still, I can see that being the case!

Mash
I see. It's true that I didn't want to know too much,
but thank you for the advice, Da Vinci.

Da Vinci
That's my girl, you're always so understanding.
Ok, that's enough for my introduction.

Da Vinci
From now, I will be focusing on supporting you with supplies, R&D within Chaldea, and updated Heroic Spirits' contracts.

Da Vinci
I am a Servant summoned by Chaldea, you see.
Unlike Mash, I cannot jump to any era.

Da Vinci
However, if Fujimaru has a contract with me, then it would be another matter.

Da Vinci
I would then be able to aid you as an ordinary Servant.
I'm looking forward to such a fate, Master.

Dr. Roman
...Wow, he really did introduce himself and run off.
Now, as I was saying before I was interrupted...

Dr. Roman
I'm sorry but we don't have time to rest.
We're going to prep for immediate Rayshift, ok?

  1. Of course. I'm ready to go at any time.
  2. ...Well, if I have to.
  Select: Of course. I'm ready to go at any time.

  Select: ...Well, if I have to.

===Branch End===

Dr. Roman
Fujimaru, we have a coffin ready for you this time.
You should be able to Rayshift safely and quickly now.

Dr. Roman
Seven singularities have been detected, but we've selected the time period with the smallest fluctuations.

Dr. Roman
Once you get there, we'll only be able to communicate with you.

Dr. Roman
Got it? I know I'm repeating myself, but the first thing is to set up a base camp and finding a leyline.

Dr. Roman
After you've settled into the era, do what needs to be done. All right—Good luck, Fujimaru.

Announcement A
Unsummon Program start.
Spiritron Conversion start.

Announcement A
Rayshift starting in 3, 2, 1...

Announcement A
All procedures cleared.
Grand Order commencing operation.

Section 1: Land of the Hundred Years' War

Show/Hide Story Chapter

Mash
...Sigh.
We managed to reach here safely, Senpai.

Mash
We were teleported by accident last time. This time it's a proper teleport via the Coffin with no physical anomalies.

Fou
Fou!
Fou! Fou!

Mash
Fou?
Did you tag along again?

Fou
Fou...
kyuu, kyao...

  1. Can Fou Rayshift too?
  2. Did he sneak into Mash's Coffin?
  Select: Can Fou Rayshift too?

  Select: Did he sneak into Mash's Coffin?

===Branch End===

Mash
...Seems that way.
He must have sneaked into mine or Senpai's Coffin.

Mash
Luckily, Fou was unharmed.

Mash
Since he is attached to one of us, when we return he will automatically return as well.

  1. In that case, no problem, right?
  2. I need to get back safely for Fou's sake, too.
  Select: In that case, no problem, right?

  Select: I need to get back safely for Fou's sake, too.

===Branch End===

Mash
Yes. We share the same fate.

Mash
–Master. I have confirmed the time axis coordinates.
Looks like it's the year 1431.

Mash
It means we're in the middle of the Hundred Years' War.
But this should be during the war's respite period.

  1. Respite?
  2. Wars get time-offs?
  Select: Respite?

  Select: Wars get time-offs?

===Branch End===

Mash
Right, The Hundred Years' War did not fight for the full 100 years as the name implies.

Mash
The war during this era was pretty carefree, relatively speaking.

Mash
Captured knights were released for monetary payments almost every day... Senpai?

  1. Look at the sky.
  2. ...
  Select: Look at the sky.

  Select: ...

===Branch End===

Mash
What is... Huh?

Dr. Roman
Yes, we're connected!
Not the best quality, but I've got video feed now too!

Dr. Roman
Wait, what's wrong you two?
Both of you staring at the sky like that.

Mash
Doctor, I'll send you visuals.
What is that?

Dr. Roman
This is–

Dr. Roman
A ring of light... No, some form of magecraft cast over the satellite orbit?

Dr. Roman
In any case it's gigantic.
At worst, it's as big as North America?

Dr. Roman
Hmmm, no records show such phenomena occurring in 1431.

Dr. Roman
It's surely one of the reasons for the disappearance of our future. We'll have to analyze it on our end...

Dr. Roman
You guys concentrate on surveying onsite.
Start by searching for leylines.

Mash
What the Doctor said.

Mash
Explore the area, make contact with the people of this era, set up the summoning circle, there are many things to do.

Mash
We have to knock them out one at a time.
Let's first move towards a city, Senpai.

Mash
Senpai, stop. Confirming...
Looks like a French scout brigade.

Mash
What do we do?
Should we attempt to make contact?

  1. Let's do that.
  2. Isn't it dangerous?
  Select: Let's do that.

  Select: Isn't it dangerous?
Mash
They look like humanoids.
I'm sure we can come to a peaceful resolution.

===Branch End===

Mash
Hello, excuse me.
We are travelers–

Soldier
...

Mash
?

Fou
Fou?

Soldier
Eek!
Enemy attack! Enemy attack!

Dr. Roman
Yoo-hoo, I'm free now so lemme see how you're...
Wait, why are you surrounded by an armed group?

Mash
...I apologize. My mistake.
I should've greeted them in French.

  1. Was that the problem!?
  2. They know what you're saying to begin with?
  Select: Was that the problem!?

  Select: They know what you're saying to begin with?

===Branch End===

Mash
Of course.
But now, I believe that combat is unavoidable.

Dr. Roman
You're starting with a fight?
With French elites, even!

Dr. Roman
W-Well, let's calm down first!
That world is isolated.

Dr. Roman
No matter what happens, a time paradox can't occur.
So engaging them won't be a problem, but...

Mash
Doctor, give us an idea.
Don't you know any French jokes for times like this?

Dr. Roman
Hell if I know, I'm a loner! But wait, let me think...

Dr. Roman
I just need to think of a witty joke, right?
Like "knock, knock!"

Soldier
I'm hearing a silly voice from somewhere...
All hands, ready your weapons! They're too suspicious!

Mash
I apologize, Senpai. It was wrong of me to expect something from the Doctor.

Mash
I think it would be bad to harm the locals.
We should attack to hold them back!

  1. What are YOU talking about now, Mash?
  2. You've stooped as low as Roman!
  Select: What are YOU talking about now, Mash?

  Select: You've stooped as low as Roman!

===Branch End===

Mash
D-Did I say something wrong?

Dr. Roman
In that case, hit them with the back of your blade!
Limit the bloodshed to a minimum! Back of the blade!

  1. With a shield?
  2. How would you...
  Select: With a shield?

  Select: How would you...

===Branch End===

Mash
I-I'll think of something!
FIREEE!

Dr. Roman
No, burning is out of the question too!

--BATTLE--

Mash
...Sigh. Physical fatigue aside, the mental fatigue is overwhelming.

  1. Are you all right?
  2. Good job using the back of your blade.
  Select: Are you all right?
Mash
Thank you very much, Senpai.

  Select: Good job using the back of your blade.
Mash
I didn't even know that was possible with a shield.
I learned something today.

===Branch End===

Mash
But...

Mash
It seems like I didn't hit hard enough. They've retreated.

Dr. Roman
They're going back to their fort.
Let's quietly chase them and ask what's going on.

Dr. Roman
Try not to aggravate them next time.
Make sure you talk to them in French, okay?

  1. Roger that, bonjour.
  2. Roger that, danke schoen.
  Select: Roger that, bonjour.
Mash
Bonjour, monsieur.
...I see, perfect. Leave it to me.

  Select: Roger that, danke schoen.
Mash
Danke schoen, Herr.
I see, somewhat perfect. I'll leave it to you.

===Branch End===

Section 2: Chase the French Soldier

Show/Hide Story Chapter

Mash
This is...
Awful, isn't it?

Dr. Roman
It's a complete ruin on the inside... The outer wall is more or less intact, but you can't call this a fort.

  1. Because it's wartime?
  2. Nothing but wounded soldiers here.
  Select: Because it's wartime?
Mash
...No, that would still be impossible.

  Select: Nothing but wounded soldiers here.
Mash
That's right.
Even though they're not in an active war–

===Branch End===

Mash
In 1431, Charles VII of France entered a peace treaty with Philip III, an ally of England.

Mash
Of course, I'm sure there were some skirmishes–

Soldier
Argh!
Here they come again!

Mash
Bonjour.
We are travelers.

Mash
We are not here to harm you.
Please put down your weapons, monsieur.

Soldier
You're not...the enemy?

Dr. Roman
Hm, that was rather easy.
Perhaps they're rational now. Or—

Dr. Roman
They have no more fight left in them?

Mash
Why didn't Charles VII sign the peace treaty?

Soldier
King Charles? So you don't know?

Soldier
The king is dead.
He was burned by a witch's flames.

Mash
...Dead?
By witch's flames?

Soldier
It's "Jeanne d'Arc."
She has risen again as the "Dragon Witch."

Soldier
England retreated quite a while ago.
But, where have we to run to?

Soldier
This is our home, but there's nothing we can do.

Mash
Jeanne d'Arc is a witch?

  1. Who is Jeanne d'Arc?
  2. ...
  Select: Who is Jeanne d'Arc?
Mash
Saint Jeanne d'Arc, the savior.
She is a world-renowned hero.
Mash
A woman who stood up to save France from being conquered in the late stages of Hundred Years' War.
Mash
She saved France at age 17, and managed to reclaim Orleans in just one year...
Mash
But she was caught by the English army,
and after an inquisition, burned at the stake.
Mash
They say that from the time of her imprisonment till her burning, she endured gruesome torture and humiliation daily.
Mash
England wanted to prove that she was not a saint, but a heretic.
Mash
So they tried to torture her into saying
"I did not hear the Lord's voice."
Mash
—However, her heart remained true.
Even while burning, she held onto her prayers.
Mash
Later, her honor was recognized, and after 400 years she was officially made a saint.
Mash
A powerless girl's wishes changed the world—
In that regard, Jeanne d'Arc is definitely a top-rank Heroic Spirit.

  Select: ...

===Branch End===

Soldier
Here! They are here!

Dr. Roman
Magical energy signals are heading here!

Dr. Roman
Familiars created using human bodies...
skeleton soldiers.

Dr. Roman
This time it's different.
Both of you can be as wild as you want!

Mash
Yes. Orders, Master!
Let's pulverize them!

--BATTLE--

Mash
...Phew.
Good work.

Soldier
You guys, I can't believe you took them on.

Mash
...We're used to it. Anyway I'm sorry, but could you please explain this from the start?

Mash
Is it true that Jeanne d'Arc has been resurrected?

Soldier
Yes. I took part in the siege of Orleans and the ceremony, so I remember it well.

Soldier
Her hair and skin color are different, but there's no question that she's the saint from the past.

Soldier
Hearing that she'd been captured by the English and burned at the stake, we trembled in fury.

Soldier
But–she was resurrected.
And through a pact with the devil, no less!

Mash
What do you mean the devil?
Like the skeleton soldiers earlier?

Soldier
Not those.
At least those we can handle ourselves.

Mash
!!!

Soldier
Dammit, just as I thought!
Here they come, engage!

Soldier
Come on, stand up! Dragons are here!
If you don't resist, they'll eat you!

Dr. Roman
Large creatures are shown to be near you!
They're moving in fast!

Mash
Visual confirmed!
But that... It can't be–

  1. Dragons!?
  2. Wyverns!?
  Select: Dragons!?

  Select: Wyverns!?

===Branch End===

Mash
Yes.
That is a subspecies of dragons called wyverns.

Mash
That is definitely a creature that should not be in 15th Century France!

Dr. Roman
It's coming!

Mash
Master, respond with full force!
This is different from those old bones from earlier!

E:???
Soldiers, douse yourself with water!
You can momentarily defend against their flames!

Soldier
Eh?

E:???
You there!
Please pick up a weapon and fight!

E:???
Together with me!
Follow me–!

Mash
This is...

Dr. Roman
Oh, she's a Servant!
But her energy is weak, what is she...

--BATTLE--

Mash
...I believe that was the last.

Dr. Roman
All right, fine job everyone! I was watching with sweaty palms and sweets in my hand!

Mash
Doctor.
Those were the sweets that I got, right?

Dr. Roman
Huh? What? Is that right? I found them in the Command Room next to the tea, so I thought...

Mash
...I got them as a token of gratitude, for when we return from this Order.

Mash
Needless to say, they weren't for you, but for Senpai, who no doubt fought bravely on the frontlines.

Dr. Roman
Mash... you've become such a thoughtful person...
(gobble, gobble)

Dr. Roman
I must say, these are some really tasty sweets.
I'm sure Fujimaru will be thrilled, too!

Mash
...Master. When we return to Chaldea, please reserve enough combat resources for one attack.

Mash
I've registered one more enemy that I'd like to hit with the "back of my blade."

Soldier
Impossible, you're–No, no way!
Run! The witch is here!

Mash
Eh, a witch?

Jeanne
...

Jeanne
Um.
Thank you very much.

Mash
No, that was nothing.
Before that, your name–

Jeanne
"Ruler."
My Servant class is Ruler.

Jeanne
My True Name is Jeanne d'Arc.

Mash
Jeanne... d'Arc?

  1. The one that became a witch...
  2. I thought she was dead.
  Select: The one that became a witch...

  Select: I thought she was dead.

===Branch End===

Jeanne
We'll talk about that later.
It is nothing we should speak of in front them.

Jeanne
Come over here.
Please.

Mash
...We've been invited.
What should we do, Senpai?

  1. Let's follow her.
  2. It's a clue.
  Select: Let's follow her.

  Select: It's a clue.

===Branch End===

Fou
Kyu kyu kyuu!

Dr. Roman
I agree as well.
She looks weakened, but she's a Servant, too.

Dr. Roman
I'm sure she's aware of the situation in this era.
Let's ask her for details.

Section 3: Jeanne's Mystery

Show/Hide Story Chapter

Jeanne
...They are few in number, but there does seem to be some evil presences.

Jeanne
We are close to the fort.
Before they invade, let's take them out.

--BATTLE--

Mash
The enemy has been wiped out.
Good job.

Jeanne
Yes.
I think we can settle down here.

Jeanne
First, please tell me your names.

Mash
Understood.
My Individual Name is Mash Kyrielight.

Mash
This is Fujimaru.
My Master.

Jeanne
Master?
So there are Masters even in this Holy Grail War.

Mash
No, it has nothing to do with the Holy Grail War.
I am just a Demi-Servant.

Jeanne
Demi-Servant?

Mash
Not a true Heroic Spirit.
Have you heard of us?

Jeanne
...Right.
We should probably clear that up first.

Jeanne
I am indeed a Servant, my class is Ruler.
I understand that.

Jeanne
But... A majority of information about the Holy Grail War that should be provided is missing.

Jeanne
No, not just information.
My stats have ranked down as well.

Jeanne
Not only have I lost the anti-Servant Command Spells,
I can't even reveal their True Names anymore.

Jeanne
Luckily this is my homeland where I was born and raised.
If nothing else I still speak the language...

Mash
That soldier earlier was saying that Jeanne d'Arc turned into a "Dragon Witch".

Jeanne
... Having just materialized a few hours ago, I am not sure what's going on.

Jeanne
It seems there is another Jeanne d'Arc in this world.

Jeanne
A Jeanne that murdered King Charles VII of France, and committed the slaughter at Orleans...

Mash
So does that mean two of the same Servants have been summoned in the same era?

Dr. Roman
Hmm... If we could access the Holy Grail War's records, there should be examples of simultaneous summons.

Dr. Roman
Anyway, one thing is for sure.
Charles VII is dead, and Orleans has been occupied.

Dr. Roman
Which symbolizes the collapse of the nation of France.

Dr. Roman
In history, France was the first nation to declare human liberty and equality. Many countries followed suit.

Dr. Roman
Delaying this by 100 years would stagnate civilization.

Dr. Roman
Without progress we might still be stuck in the Middle Ages.

Jeanne
I just heard a voice... Is that magecraft?
What in the world are you all—

Dr. Roman
Oh that's right, we didn't introduce ourselves.
Nice to meet you, Saint Jeanne d'Arc.

Dr. Roman
My name is Romani Archaman.
Everyone calls me Roman.

Dr. Roman
I do various support tasks.
Nice to meet you.

Jeanne
I see, Roman.
You tend to be a dreamer!

Dr. Roman
...What is this sense of defeat?
She complimented me, but I'm not happy at all...

Mash
Excuse me, Mademoiselle Jeanne.
It's our turn now.

Mash
Our objective is the correction of this twisted history.
We belong to an organization by the name of Chaldea.

Jeanne
...I see, I understand now.
To think that the world itself has been incinerated.

Jeanne
My worries were so trivial.
But now, I—

Fou
Fou?

Jeanne
I'm an incomplete Servant, and even I cannot trust "myself."

Jeanne
The Jeanne 'd'Arc that occupied Orleans...
Not only that, but those flying dragons...

Mash
You mean the wyverns... There is no way wyverns existed in the 15th century France.

Mash
More importantly, he called you a "Dragon Witch".

Jeanne
Yes, I don't want to admit it, but the person controlling those dragons must be "myself."

Jeanne
I have no idea how she's controlling them.
I never thought about such things during my life.

Jeanne
Summoning dragons is the highest form of magecraft, let alone to have this many–

Dr. Roman
It's an impossible feat for modern mages.
It should be difficult even for this era's magecraft.

Dr. Roman
That means... Fujimaru.
If there's anything that could bend rules like this...

  1. ...It's likely to be a Holy Grail?
  2. ...Smooth over chunky?
  Select: ...It's likely to be a Holy Grail?
Dr. Roman
Exactly. It's only speculation, but these are no longer someone else's problems.

  Select: ...Smooth over chunky?
Dr. Roman
You're still bringing that up?
You're pretty vindictive, aren't you?

===Branch End===

Mash
I see, there are still many unclear points, but I have an idea now.

Mash
Mademoiselle Jeanne.
What are you going to do from here?

Jeanne
...The objective is clear.

Jeanne
Head to Orleans, and take back the city. To do that, I must exterminate the Jeanne d'Arc who stands in my way.

Jeanne
The Lord didn't show me the path, but I cannot turn my back on this.

Mash
Even alone, you will fight...
She's just like history says, Master.

  1. Yeah, I thought so, too.
  2. A startling difference from Da Vinci.
  Select: Yeah, I thought so, too.

  Select: A startling difference from Da Vinci.

===Branch End===

Mash
Master, and Doctor.
Our objective and Ms. Jeanne's are the same.

Mash
I was thinking about our next course of action...
How about we help her?

  1. Of course, I thought the same.
  2. I'd help even without a mission.
  Select: Of course, I thought the same.

  Select: I'd help even without a mission.

===Branch End===

Dr. Roman
Right. It's best to work together with Jeanne here.
It's a rare honor to fight alongside a Saint and Savior!

Mash
Good. Then once again, Mademoiselle Jeanne.

Mash
We have our own objectives, but we want to be of aid to you.

Mash
Will you allow us to fight under your flag as your companions from now on?

Jeanne
Oh... The pleasure will be all mine.
I cannot possibly thank you enough.

Jeanne
...Thank you, Mash, Fujimaru.
I thought I would be in this fight all alone.

Jeanne
Now at this place and time, we shall fight as one.
So, Fujimaru, please give us your orders!

--BATTLE--

Jeanne
I'm so ashamed that I said I'd fight on my own earlier.
Thanks to you two, I feel stronger than ever.

Jeanne
Even if I'm up against myself, a witch, I have nothing to be afraid of now the two of you are with me.

  1. Being called a witch...
  2. Are you all right?
  Select: Being called a witch...

  Select: Are you all right?

===Branch End===

Jeanne
I am fine.

Jeanne
Needless to say, it saddens me that they'd mistake me for that other Jeanne.

Jeanne
But it can't be helped.

Jeanne
In fact, it hasn't been more than a few days since I was burned at the stake...

Jeanne
If a resurrected me caused a massacre in Orleans, then I can't blame them for being scared of me.

Jeanne
...I was afraid the British might be stirred up, but it would appear things are going smoothly.

Jeanne
We should seek out the Jeanne who they call a witch and defeat her.

Jeanne
But for now, we should scout around first.
The goal is simple, but reaching it not so much.

Dr. Roman
As expected, Jeanne d'Arc is well-versed in the art of the war. Like she said, an assault on Orleans is ill-advised.

Dr. Roman
It's an unfamiliar land and we have yet to set up any bases. For now, take the initiative and gather intel on their defenses.

Dr. Roman
As for the witch Jeanne–Or shall we call her Dark Jeanne? I would like to find out what kind of Servant she is.

Dr. Roman
The rest is up to our forces.
It would be good to have more allies.

Mash
Jeanne, is there a reading on any other Servants besides ourselves?

Jeanne
I'm sorry, but as I am now, I am incapable of using my ability as a Ruler to detect other Servants.

Jeanne
Like other ordinary Servants, I cannot detect them unless I am within a certain distance.

  1. Wait, what about the other Jeanne?
  2. Rulers can detect Servants?
  Select: Wait, what about the other Jeanne?

  Select: Rulers can detect Servants?

===Branch End===

Jeanne
I was careless.
There is that possibility.

Jeanne
The other me... No, Witch Jeanne... Urgh, it's too confusing, I will also refer to her as Dark Jeanne!

Jeanne
Anyway, if that Dark Jeanne is truly a Servant then her Class, like mine, is Ruler.

Jeanne
If that is the case, she will immediately be able to detect our location. We must be prepared for battle at all times.

Jeanne
If possible, I would like to minimize our activities in any nearby towns and villages—

Jeanne
But without any lead on our hands, I doubt that's possible.

Jeanne
Let us head out early tomorrow morning.
Fujimaru is human and should probably get some sleep...

  1. I'll do that then.
  2. Are you all right?
  Select: I'll do that then.

  Select: Are you all right?

===Branch End===

Jeanne
Yes, I am fine.

Jeanne
My abilities may have gone down in rank, but I still possess the basic abilities of a Servant.

Jeanne
Well, good night.

Jeanne
Did Fujimaru go to sleep?

Mash
Yes, surprisingly quick for someone who is unfamiliar with sleeping outdoors.

Jeanne
Is that so...

Mash
...I could be imagining things, but is there something you aren't telling us?

Jeanne
...

Mash
I don't mean to pry...

Mash
I thought it best to confront you in case it should become an obstacle in battle.

Jeanne
Quite right.
As you wish, I shall tell you.

Jeanne
It could be because my summoning was incomplete.

Jeanne
Or–perhaps it's because my original self died just a few days ago.

Jeanne
How can I put it?
It feels as if I am a "brand-new Servant."

Mash
A rookie, you mean?

Jeanne
Yes. There is no future or past in the Throne of Heroes.

Jeanne
But, I don't have the power to access the records there.
Therefore, it is difficult for me to act as a Servant.

Jeanne
It feels like going into battle for the first time all over again. And that bubbly-looking mage from before...

Jeanne
He called me a saint and savior, but even with that expectation, I have no such power.

Jeanne
...So, the thing is.
I fear that I will become a burden to you.

Mash
Jeanne, if that's all then it's all right.

Jeanne
What?

Mash
I mean, this also feels like my first battle.
We are the same.

Mash
As a Demi-Servant, I cannot fully harness my power as a Heroic Spirit.

Mash
However, the Heroic Spirit inside of me said "It's okay."

Mash
And Senpai—Master, trusts someone like me.

Mash
...I don't know how to say this, but Senpai didn't choose to fight to prove something.

Mash
Senpai is simply trying to do what should be done, I think.

Mash
So, it's all right.
There's no reason for you to worry.

Jeanne
...Thank you. I feel a little better.

Jeanne
I am pretty familiar with this era and this country.
Let's give it our best tomorrow!

Mash
Yes!

Section 4: Information Gathering

Show/Hide Story Chapter

Jeanne
First, let's cut through this forest and head to Orleans.

Jeanne
Of course, it will be difficult to enter directly.

Jeanne
But we might be able to get some information from the surrounding towns and forts.

Jeanne
We're almost at La Charite.

Jeanne
If we can't get any information here about Orleans, we'll have to get closer–

Jeanne
I'd rather avoid that as much as possible.

Jeanne
As long as I am still uncertain about the forces we have, we cannot engage.

  1. You're really cautious.
  2. You're really calm.
  Select: You're really cautious.

  Select: You're really calm.

===Branch End===

Jeanne
...No, to be honest, I am panicking. No matter how you look at it, the other "me" cannot be in her right mind.

Jeanne
What that monster will do by controlling the people–
it's easy to imagine.

Jeanne
Overwhelming power and hatred can easily destroy a person, no matter how noble they are.

Dr. Roman
–Wait a minute.
A Servant was detected just ahead of your current path.

Dr. Roman
Its location is in La Charite, which is your destination.

Mash
!!!

Dr. Roman
Huh, it's getting further away.
Oh no, I've lost it! It's too far away!

Fou
Fou! Fou!!

Mash
What is it Fou? Suddenly climbing on my head?
You want to see the sky over there?

Mash
The town... It's burning?

Jeanne
Let's hurry!

Jeanne
It couldn't be!

Mash
Doctor, life form detection–

Dr. Roman
...It's no use!
There's nothing alive left in that town.

Mash
It can't be–

Jeanne
Wait. Just now, a sound!

Mash
Wait a minute, that's–!

Jeanne
No... It can't, be!

Mash
Looks like they've turned into the living dead.
Master, I will scatter them!

--BATTLE--

Jeanne
Gasp, gasp, gasp...

Mash
Are you all right?

Jeanne
Yes. I'm fine–

--ARROW--

Mash
...They're still here.
They look like wyverns.

Mash
Are they...
Ugh, no way!

Dr. Roman
Are they devouring the corpses?

Jeanne
Stop it!

Mash
I'm going!

--ARROW--

Mash
–That was the last of the wyverns.
No sign of the enemy nearby. The battle is over.

Jeanne
...

Mash
Jeanne?

Jeanne
... It was most likely "me" who was behind this.

Mash
We can't be sure of that yet–

Jeanne
No, I can tell. I am sure of it.
...There's just one thing I don't understand.

Jeanne
How much do you have to hate others to wreak such havoc?

Jeanne
I can't understand it.

Dr. Roman
Hold up! The Servants that just left have reversed course! This isn't good. They must've realized you're here!

Mash
How many?

Dr. Roman
You must be kidding.
There are five!

Dr. Roman
They're fast...
Are those Riders or something?

Dr. Roman
We don't stand a chance against them!
We must run!

Mash
But–!

Dr. Roman
We might be able to face them if we had the same numbers.

Dr. Roman
But there's no way you can fight an opponent that's several times stronger than you, is there?

Dr. Roman
Let's retreat, as any sane person would!
It says so in the 36 Strategies of War!

Jeanne
...

Mash
Jeanne!
Servants are closing in–

Jeanne
...I won't run.
I must at least find out what their true intentions are!

Mash
But!

Dr. Roman
It's no use, we won't make it!
Mash, just run, got it?

Section 5: Dark Jeanne

Show/Hide Story Chapter

Jeanne
...Ugh!

Jeanne Alter
—What, on earth?
Who knew... Who knew such a thing could happen?

Jeanne

Jeanne Alter
Could someone please pour some water on me.
This is bad. It's awful. I think I'm really going to lose it.

Jeanne Alter
It's so funny I might die from laughing!

Jeanne Alter
Take a look Gilles! Look at that pathetic girl!
What is she a wimp? A mouse? A worm?

Jeanne Alter
Either way, they're all the same!
So puny, I can't even muster any sympathy!

Jeanne Alter
Ah... truly—a country that could only cling to "me"
...comparing them to mice is an insult to mice.

Jeanne Alter
Hey, Gilles, don't you think so—
Oh, I see. We didn't bring Gilles along.

Jeanne
You... Who are you?

Jeanne Alter
I could ask the same of you...
Right, as a leader, let me answer that.

Jeanne Alter
I am Jeanne d'Arc. The saint devoted to France...
the other "me."

Jeanne
What? That's nonsense.
You are no saint. Just as I am no saint.

Jeanne
But, that is already a thing of the past.
More importantly—Why did you attack this town?

Jeanne Alter
...Why, you ask? As the same Jeanne d'Arc,
I thought you would understand.

Jeanne Alter
Are you stupid now that your alignment has changed?
The reason I attacked this city?

Jeanne Alter
What a foolish question.
It's obvious, isn't it?

Jeanne Alter
It is for the sole purpose of destroying France.
I am, after all, a Servant.

Jeanne Alter
Politically, economically, these methods take too long.
Is it not better to simply physically crush everything?

Jeanne
Such foolishness!

Jeanne Alter
"Such foolishness?"
The foolish ones are us, Jeanne d'Arc.

Jeanne Alter
Why did you want to save this country?
Why did you want to bring salvation to these people?

Jeanne Alter
All the while knowing that they are the ones who spit on and betrayed us!

Jeanne
That is–

Jeanne Alter
I will be fooled no longer. I will be betrayed no longer.
I no longer hear the voice of the Lord.

Jeanne Alter
The fact that I cannot hear His voice, means the Lord no longer blesses this country.

Jeanne Alter
So, I will destroy it, in accordance to the Lord's grief.
I will cut away all the bad seeds at the roots.

Jeanne Alter
As long as the human race exists, so will my hatred.
I will remake this France into a land of the dead.

Jeanne Alter
That's how I will save this country. By the hands of the new Jeanne d'Arc, reborn through death.

Jeanne Alter
I suppose you could never understand.
Always playing the saint.

Jeanne Alter
Impossible for a pretty little holy virgin who pretends not to see hatred and joy and is incapable of human growth!

Jeanne
I...

Dr. Roman
No, what is human growth to Servants? If you're going to call it something, you would rank up as a Heroic Spirit.

Jeanne Alter
—There appears to be a noisy fly here.
Should I kill it if it's gets too annoying?

Dr. Roman
Wait, wha-, the console's on fire!
That Servant can burn her enemies with just a glare!?

Jeanne
... Are you really "me"?

Jeanne Alter
...I have played my part for you so clearly, yet you still have doubts?

Jeanne Alter
This rage is an ugly justice. It's not that you cannot understand it, you do not even have the will to try.

Jeanne Alter
But, I understand. Seeing you, I have realized all there is to the Heroic Spirit that is myself.

Jeanne Alter
You are neither Ruler nor Jeanne d'Arc. You are nothing but some leftover residue that I threw away.

Jeanne
!!!

Jeanne Alter
If you were the same existence and Class as I, then I should have felt something.

Jeanne Alter
But you are worthless. Nothing but a ghost with a misguided effort to recreate history.

Jeanne Alter
Berserk Lancer, Berserk Assassin.
Finish off that country girl.

Jeanne Alter
You're getting tired of small prey, aren't you?
Rejoice, they are strong.

Jeanne Alter
Among all the Servants I summoned, your thirst for blood is the strongest.

Jeanne Alter
You exist to crush the brave.
Devour them to your heart's content.

Berserk Lancer
—Very well.
Now, I will have your blood.

Berserk Assassin
Not so fast "my King." I would like to partake of her flesh and blood, as well as her insides.

Berserk Lancer
So greedy.
And her soul? Who gets to take her soul?

Berserk Assassin
There is no gain in taking her soul. Do you think honor or reputation can maintain my beauty?

Berserk Lancer
Very well. Then I shall take her soul.
It's quite ironic though.

Berserk Lancer
I am able to understand her beauty, only after I have fallen as a blood-sucking devil.

Berserk Assassin
Yes. That is precisely why I cannot hold back my emotions.

Berserk Assassin
I will not forgive anything more beautiful than me.
No, more than that—

Berserk Assassin
The blood of those more beautiful than me, can only elevate my beauty!

Berserk Assassin
Ah, how fun it is to crush such fresh fruit.
I'll throw away the skin and just enjoy the juice—

Berserk Assassin
This is the privilege of being a Noble of the Night.
I'll squeeze every last drop out of you.

Jeanne
Ugh!

Mash
...Master.

  1. Let's do this.
  2. We have no other option.
  Select: Let's do this.

  Select: We have no other option.

===Branch End===

Mash
Right!

Mash
Jeanne!
Get ready, they're coming!

Jeanne
U-Understood!

--BATTLE--

Berserk Assassin
I can't believe you couldn't finish off a young girl...
I wonder if you felt sympathy for her.

Berserk Assassin
Kindness doesn't suit you.
It's not very monster-like, Dracul.

Mash
Dracul... no way.

Dr. Roman
Vlad III... Romania's greatest hero.
Also known as the Lord Impaler.

Berserk Lancer
Who knew that you'd reveal my True Name in front of others. I'm extremely displeased.

Berserk Assassin
What's wrong? I would rather be remembered by a bad name than not at all.

Berserk Assassin
Besides... I prefer to be called by my True Name.
Dread and despair, faintly spiced with hope.

Berserk Assassin
The ones with the best cries are the little squirrels who think "I can escape."

Berserk Lancer
But in the end, you were driven to ruin by the hands of those who actually escaped.

Berserk Lancer
Elisabeth Báthory. Otherwise known as Carmilla.
How humorous your tragic end was.

Berserk Assassin
How boring. That's why I don't like your kind.
Even as you're damned as a vampire, you still cling to your noble "heart."

Berserk Lancer
—You mean to say that I cling to my faith even now?

Jeanne Alter
Stop this instant. I told you that you could devour freely,
but do not forget who is friend and foe.

Jeanne Alter
Turn your animosity to those little girls now.
Save your petty squabbles for later.

Berserk Assassin
Ah, you misunderstand, Master.
Secretly, I idolize Count Vlad as a leader.

Berserk Lancer
That's the first I've heard of it.
Comparing idolizing with plotting assassination.

Dr. Roman
Wow... They're fighting amongst themselves...
It's a bad work environment, over there.

Mash
Do not let your guard down, Master.
They still intend to kill us!

--ARROW--

Berserk Assassin
All right, it's my turn.
Please don't mistake me for that kind Count Vlad.

Mash
Master... Elisabeth Báthory.
...Do you know her?

  1. The Blood Countess, was it?
  2. Never heard of her.
  Select: The Blood Countess, was it?
Mash
That's right.
Like Vlad III, she was feared as a monster–
Mash
She believed that bathing in the blood of virgins would keep her youthful. She's said to have murdered hundreds of girls.

  Select: Never heard of her.
Mash
She was a Hungarian noble, who was said to have abducted and slaughtered young girls.
Mash
She believed bathing in their blood would make her skin youthful again.

===Branch End===

Berserk Assassin
Saints' blood is valuable.
No woman would let go of a gem placed before her!

--BATTLE--

Berserk Assassin
Something doesn't feel right.
Was that the reason Count Vlad...

Berserk Assassin
You over there, young lady.
You—smell horrible.

Berserk Assassin
A girl of such tender years, yet so battle-hardened.
How contradictory. Who is she?

Jeanne Alter
...A Demi-Servant.
An anomaly, a cross between a human and a Servant.

Mash
!!!

Jeanne Alter
...That was my mistake. You two are crueler than the others, but that's why you're so playful.

Jeanne Alter
Let the remaining three deal with this girl.

--ARROW--

Berserk Lancer
Wait, Carmilla and I can still fight.
The saint's blood belongs to us.

Berserk Lancer
As if I would allow mere executioners who know nothing of the radiance of blood, the grandeur of blood, take...

Jeanne Alter
Shut up. Know your place, Vlad III.

Jeanne Alter
No matter how much authority you may have had in life, you're all equals as Servants.

Jeanne Alter
You wanted so badly to suck her blood that you unconsciously held back. You haven't learned a thing.

Jeanne Alter
—I hate people like that.
Stay out of it this time, okay?

Jeanne
Mash, run!
I'll hold her off!

Dr. Roman
Oh no, is she sending those three after us now?
What do we do? Any ideas? Any ideas?

Mash
Doctor, please calm down.
You're starting to make me panic, too!

Dr. Roman
B-But this is really bad, right!
Okay, where's my email? I need the internet's help!

Dr. Roman
Off to the internet idol page!
Help me Magi☆Mari! Help me Magi☆Mari!

Dr. Roman
"We're being attacked by three Servants.
What should we do?" Okay, sent.

Dr. Roman
"I guess you'll have to just die and be reborn!☆"

Dr. Roman
Wow, internet idols are HARSH!
She doesn't know how I feel!

Mash
–Master, I'm going to try and break through.

Mash
Stay close!

--BATTLE--

Mash
Ugh!

Jeanne Alter
That should be enough. Just in case, I will make sure to remove your head from your body.

Jeanne
Both of you, please go!

Jeanne
What?

Jeanne Alter
–What?

Mash
A glass–rose?

F:???
–It's not elegant.

F:???
Neither is this city. Neither is that combat style.
I don't like your philosophy or principles either.

F:???
You're so beautiful, yet you shroud yourself in blood and hatred.

F:???
For good or for evil, shouldn't a human try to be more free?

Jeanne Alter
...A Servant?

--ARROW--

F:???
Yes, that's right. I'm so happy. This is what it means to announce oneself as a hero of justice!

F:???
I know who you are.
I also know how powerful and terrifying you are.

F:???
To be honest, I have to confess that I've never trembled in fear more before anyone else.

F:???
Yet still—If you intend to invade this nation, then I shall face you even if I have to tear apart my dress.

F:???
Why? Because...

Berserk Saber
You are...

F:???
Oh my. So you know my True Name.
Have we met before, splendid female knight?

Jeanne Alter
Saber.
Who is she?

Berserk Saber
...

Jeanne Alter
–Answer me.

Berserk Saber
I can tell who she is, even with this murderous rage burning in my heart. Her beauty is unmistakable.

Berserk Saber
The girl they called the Flower of Versailles.
She is—Marie Antoinette.

Mash
Queen Marie Antoinette?

Marie Antoinette
That's right!
Thank you for saying my name!

Marie Antoinette
And as long as that name exists, I will play my role, no matter how foolish it may be.

Marie Antoinette
You! Dragon Witch who's torching my country.
It might be pointless, but I will ask you anyway.

Marie Antoinette
Are you evil enough to perform your wicked deeds in my very presence?

Marie Antoinette
Will you declare yourself a greater fool than I, the queen who failed to stop the revolution?

Jeanne Alter
Silence! You lack the right to participate in this battle.

Marie Antoinette
Oh, and why is that?

Jeanne Alter
You led a life of luxury in a palace, and died without even knowing what happened. Are you saying you can understand our hatred?

Marie Antoinette
Hmm... I suppose I can't. But that just makes me want to know more, Dragon Witch.

Jeanne Alter
...What?

Marie Antoinette
What I don't know, I learn.
That's my policy.

Marie Antoinette
That's why I can't bear to look at you like this.
Oh, Jeanne d'Arc, beloved saint!

Marie Antoinette
All I know is that you're taking your rage out on the innocent.

Marie Antoinette
And I've not the slightest idea why. Everything's disappearing into a haze, like a girl going for a Sunday walk.

Marie Antoinette
I've no words for you.
What I do know is this.

Marie Antoinette
Along with the Jeanne d'Arc over there.
I am going to make your heart and body mine!

Mash
What?

Jeanne
Uh... huh?

Marie Antoinette
Oh, my. Oh dear, oh dear.
Um, don't misunderstand me.

Marie Antoinette
I just meant that as a Queen, I'm going to bring you to your knees.

Dr. Roman
...It's falling apart...
My image of Marie Antoinette is falling apart...

Jeanne Alter
—Enough of this farce.
Very well then, you are my enemy.

Jeanne Alter
Servants, first take care of that annoying princess!
Then the others!

--BATTLE--

Jeanne
We survived somehow.
So did she!

Mash
Gasp...gasp...gasp...

Berserk Lancer
Damn, so irritating!

Marie Antoinette
Yes, that's right.
This is a battlefield, after all. That's enough talk.

Marie Antoinette
You're the enemy of the world, aren't you? So first–
We must appease the souls of all those you murdered.

Marie Antoinette
Thank you for waiting, Amadeus.
Crush them like bugs!

Amadeus
Leave it to me!
Noble Phantasm, "Requiem for Death."

Berserk Assassin
One more!
Oh, but what a glorious, evil sound!

Berserk Lancer
Ugh, such pressure!

Jeanne Alter
Damn!

Marie Antoinette
Now then, good day everyone.
Au revoir!

Jeanne Alter
...Hmph.
Rider!

Berserk Rider
...What is it?

Jeanne Alter
Go after them.
Surely you can catch them on your "horse."

Jeanne Alter
There's no need to fight.

Jeanne Alter
Just tell me where they are, and I'll crush them.

Berserk Rider
...Understood.
I assure you I'll catch them.

Berserk Assassin
Ahh, that awful noise is gone...
What a shame.

Berserk Assassin
I wonder if I can make that Servant my pet. I'd stick his head on a phonograph and have him scream all night.

Berserk Lancer
...Ruler.
Do you think Rider alone is enough to handle them?

Jeanne Alter
It will be fine.
Rider's Noble Phantasm is perfect for destroying them.

Jeanne Alter
...But you're right, I should be careful.
I'll return and prepare to summon additional Servants.

Jeanne Alter
Go ahead and cause as much trouble as you like.
If you're lucky enough to find them, slay them.

Jeanne Alter
You're not going to be beaten by an queen who never left her castle, are you?

Berserk Assassin
How harsh.
I stayed in a castle too.

Berserk Assassin
But...Heh.
My talents are a match for any of the others.

Berserk Assassin
Saber, Lancer. The next time we fight, will you let me handle the enemy Rider?

Berserk Lancer
May I ask why?

Berserk Assassin
She is the person I wish to slaughter most in this world.
It will be that woman Marie who kneels before me.

Berserk Saber
...

Berserk Assassin
Oh, Saber.
Is there something you'd like to add?

Berserk Saber
You're right. There's no point in me worrying about your sense of inferiority towards her.

Berserk Assassin
–What did you say?

Jeanne Alter
...Stop. I don't care. It doesn't matter who beats who, the result doesn't change.

Jeanne Alter
I leave this in your hands.
Don't get too out of control.

Jeanne Alter
Even Anti-Heroes have their dignity.
Make sure you don't become mere murderers.

Berserk Assassin
...She flew off, huh?
"Dragon Witch" is certainly the right word for her.

Berserk Saber
–The woman we just faced was the real Jeanne d'Arc, wasn't she?

Berserk Lancer
What of it? Ours isn't a fake either.

Berserk Lancer
And we are Servants, in search of blood.
–Though you may not be, even in this state...

Berserk Lancer
Chevalier d'Eon. The noble dragoon.

Berserk Saber
...I will obey my Master.
If she wishes to end the world, I will help her.

Berserk Saber
And I too, am under Madness Enhancement.
Do not anger me.

Berserk Lancer
–Heh. My apologies.

Berserk Saber
...

Berserk Assassin
It's hard not to feel pity. The Queen they respected, who sent them a dress, is now her enemy.

Berserk Assassin
But that is the fate of a Servant.
That is the nature of the Holy Grail War.

Berserk Assassin
Lancer, let's go.
We must search the next city.

Berserk Assassin
We are vampires, who must drink the blood of the living.
Finding our next meal is a matter of life and death.

Berserk Lancer
...Indeed, none of these meals are satisfactory.
But I'll take what I can get.

Section 6: One Thing After Another

Show/Hide Story Chapter

Marie Antoinette
–Phew.
All right, are we safe now?

Mash
Doctor?

Dr. Roman
Yes. I'm not detecting them anymore.

Dr. Roman
While we're at it, I'm picking up leyline readings from that nearby forest.

Mash
Very well.
Jeanne? And...Marie?

Marie Antoinette
Marie, did you say?

Mash
F-Forgive me.
Um–

Marie Antoinette
You weren't being rude! You made me so happy!
The way you addressed me was so adorable!

Marie Antoinette
Please, splendid foreigner!
Would you mind calling me that from now on?

Mash
Uh, yes...
Miss Marie, or Mademoiselle Marie, perhaps?

Marie Antoinette
Nope, that won't work at all.
Just Marie! Like the sheep!

  1. I'm pretty sure that was 'Mary'...
  2. Nice to meet you, Marie.
  Select: I'm pretty sure that was 'Mary'...

  Select: Nice to meet you, Marie.

===Branch End===

Marie Antoinette
Yes! Yes, yes, yes!
Nice to meet you! I'm Marie!

Marie Antoinette
I love understanding {(M) gentlemen /(F) ladies}. Let me guess.
You're very popular with the opposite sex, right?

Mash
...Marie, may I speak?

Marie Antoinette
Oh, my apologies.
I got excited for a minute. How rude of me.

Marie Antoinette
So, how may I be of service?

Mash
A strong leyline was detected in a nearby forest.
I'd like to head there and make camp...

Mash
Is that all right, everyone?

Marie Antoinette
Of course, that's fine.
Is that all right with you, Amadeus?

Amadeus
There's no point in asking for my opinion.
Do what you want, Maria.

Jeanne
All right.
It should be fine, I think.

Mash
Let's go there and rest, and then we can talk about our next move.

Mash
...Looks like some monsters have found the leyline too.

Mash
Let's get rid of them!

--BATTLE--

Mash
...Now I will establish a summoning circle.

Da Vinci
Hey guys, are you enjoying your trip through 15th century France?

Da Vinci
Now then, let's get today's lecture started.
Today I'll be talking about Servant categories.

Da Vinci
Most of the Servants that can be summoned are divided into seven classes.

Da Vinci
Saber, Archer, Lancer, Rider, Berserker, Caster, Assassin.

Da Vinci
Each class has various compatibilities.

Da Vinci
Saber has the advantage over Lancer, for instance.
And Lancer over Archer, and Archer over Saber.

Da Vinci
Rider over Caster, Caster over Assassin, and Assassin over Rider.

Da Vinci
And Berserker is strong against all classes, but weak when attacked.

Da Vinci
It's like a game of rock, paper, scissors.
Keep this in mind when fighting the enemy.

Da Vinci
Of course, there are some Servants who don't fall into these categories.

Da Vinci
I'll explain them another time.
Okay, circle's good to go. Have a nice journey!

--ARROW--

Marie Antoinette
Now that things have settled down, I'd like to introduce myself again.

Marie Antoinette
My True Name is Marie Antoinette.
I'm from the Rider Class.

Marie Antoinette
As for who I am, I'd be happy if you could examine me closely with your eyes and ears.

Marie Antoinette
As for why I was summoned, unfortunately,
I have no idea. After all, I have no Master.

Amadeus
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
I'm the same as her.

Amadeus
As for why I was summoned, first of all, it just doesn't feel like I'm a hero.

Amadeus
Yes I'm great, but even so, I'm still just one of many artists...

Amadeus
Well, I did apply magecraft in my music, but that was only because I was drawn to the sounds played by demons.

Mash
I'm Mash Kyrielight. I'm a Demi-Servant, and I don't know what my True Name is.

Mash
This is Fujimaru.
My Master.

  1. Nice to meet you.
  2. Whassup.
  Select: Nice to meet you.
Amadeus
Pleasure is mine. As fellow non-fighters, let's get along.

  Select: Whassup.
Marie Antoinette
Oh my! What an interesting greeting!
Wh...Whassup! My homies!
Marie Antoinette
Hmph, it seems different when Fujimaru says it... Perhaps I need to think more like a peasant...
Mash
Come on... Don't teach her weird greetings.
Marie Antoinette
Oh, I've got it! I have to be more needy!
Come on, Amadeus! Whassup!
Amadeus
Whassup! I like it, Maria. Keep it up!
I can feel the love of a century beginning to fade!
Marie Antoinette
...Hmmph.
Marie Antoinette
I'm sorry Fujimaru. Whassup is a very stimulating greeting, but I must reluctantly refrain from it.
Marie Antoinette
If Amadeus likes it, that means it's not appropriate for a lady to use.
Amadeus
Let's not be slanderous here. You're acting like I'm a pervert gentleman who loves dirty jokes.
Marie Antoinette
Don't blame me.
You're a child when it comes to everything but music.

===Branch End===

Mash
And this is–

Marie Antoinette
Jeanne.
Jeanne d'Arc, yes?

Marie Antoinette
The saint who saved France.
One of the people I wished to meet in my life.

Jeanne
...I'm, not a saint.

Marie Antoinette
Yes, everyone knows that's how you saw yourself.

Marie Antoinette
But the way you lead your life was true, and we all know the results.

Marie Antoinette
That's why everyone will always remember and admire the name Jeanne d'Arc, and the miracle of Orleans.

Jeanne
...

Amadeus
Of course, your life ended at the stake and resulted in that witch. It's just like Maria to only look at the good parts.

Amadeus
Am I wrong, Jeanne d'Arc?
Your life was a little out of tune.

Amadeus
Jeanne herself is the one who gets hurt when people call her a perfect saint.

Amadeus
Listen, Maria. You always say what you think others want to hear. Sometimes you need to scold or deny others.

Marie Antoinette
I-I don't need to hear that from you, Amadeus!
You already tell me that every day!

Marie Antoinette
T-This is what you want, right?
You piano-brain! Piece of human garbage!

Marie Antoinette
You're a pervert who can only get it up for musical scales! If you like music so much, you should turn into a piano!

Amadeus
...I don't know if I should say this, but when you insult me like that, I feel something indescribable.

Amadeus
But see? You can do it if you try!
Give the same treatment to Jeanne.

Amadeus
Faster. Stronger. More violent!
Tell her all of her flaws as you see them!

Marie Antoinette
Non, that's impossible Amadeus.

Marie Antoinette
Human garbage like you has nothing but flaws.
But Jeanne herself has none.

Amadeus
—Are you serious? I didn't know you had it that bad.
You really did love Jeanne d'Arc, didn't you?

Marie Antoinette
I would say "worship" rather than love.
And a bit of guilt, as well.

Marie Antoinette
...A tiny "sorry", the size of a teaspoon.
The natural guilt we foolish royals feel towards the Saint.

Jeanne
...Marie Antoinette.
Your words honor me, but that's why I must confess.

Jeanne
In life, I was no saint.

Jeanne
I held the flag high for what I believed in, and as a result, I stained my hands with blood.

Jeanne
...Of course, I don't regret that.
Nor do I regret the Inquisition–Or my own death.

Jeanne
But I shed too much blood.
I believed in the dreams of a little country girl, but—

Jeanne
At the time, I never imagined how high the price of that dream was.

Jeanne
I never regretted it, but never did I feel fear.
...And that is my greatest sin.

Jeanne
Only the outcome of my actions made me a saint. I do not think it's the right word for a country girl like me.

Marie Antoinette
...I see.
So you're not a saint, right?

Marie Antoinette
Then, may I call you Jeanne?

Jeanne
...Y-Yes. Of course.
It feels like that would bring back old memories.

Marie Antoinette
Wonderful.
Call me Marie, then.

Marie Antoinette
If you're simply Jeanne, and not a saint, then I want to be Marie, and not a queen.

Marie Antoinette
Please Jeanne, will you call me Marie?

Jeanne
Y-Yes.
All right... Thank you, Marie.

Marie Antoinette
Thank you too.
I am happy, Jeanne!

Marie Antoinette
And I'm sorry. I keep pushing my own views on you.
You've lost your own answers about yourself, haven't you?

Marie Antoinette
Just like the day I died, not knowing a thing about what was going on. You'll have to find your own answers.

Marie Antoinette
I certainly want to treat you as a saint, but I'll stop myself!

Marie Antoinette
I won't just believe in you, I'll support you! Isn't that what female friends are supposed to do, Amadeus?

Amadeus
I suppose so, yeah?
You guys can go eat sweets or something.

Mash
We believe in you too.
Right, Master?

  1. Of course.
  2. Fake monsters are a common thing.
  Select: Of course.
Jeanne
...Heh, heh, thank you.
That makes me feel better.

  Select: Fake monsters are a common thing.
Jeanne
F-Fake monsters?
Mash
Master... Don't say things that are going to confuse her.
Marie Antoinette
I don't know about fake monsters, but I do know about monsters!

===Branch End===

Marie Antoinette
Look, it seems like we have invited some unwanted guests.

Amadeus
No, I don't think you invited them. Well, whatever.
Let's get rid of them and resume our conversation!

--BATTLE--

Marie Antoinette
–Now I understand.
The whole world, never mind France, is in danger.

Marie Antoinette
Although it's in a different form, this too, is a Holy Grail War?

Amadeus
I knew it was dangerous when I learned it was a Master-less summoning, but I didn't expect this.

Amadeus
Now there were five Servants in opposition.
Nine total including Mash, but isn't that too much?

Mash
The rule of seven Servants is no more.
...Although that doesn't mean infinite.

Mash
It's not surprising at all if there are more than seven Servants.

Mash
...According to the records, one time a total of fifteen Servants fought.

Marie Antoinette
Oh, I get it! I've figured it out, everyone!

Marie Antoinette
We were summoned so that–
We could defeat them, like heroes!

  1. It might be to destroy the world.
  2. I think you're right.
  Select: It might be to destroy the world.
Marie Antoinette
Non, non, non!
That's not right, Fujimaru.
Marie Antoinette
I love everybody.
Just as I did when I was alive.
Marie Antoinette
I wouldn't need these feelings to destroy the world, and they wouldn't summon me anyway!

  Select: I think you're right.
Marie Antoinette
Yes, yes! I finally feel like I've found my job in life!

===Branch End===

Amadeus
It's perfectly fine to be confident, Maria.
But we're up against powerful foes.

Amadeus
Jeanne and Mash, as well as Fujimaru, are used to combat. But you and I aren't the fighting type.

Amadeus
The numbers matter less than the fact that they're far stronger.

Mash
...Indeed.
Vlad III, and Elisabeth Báthory.

Mash
One carved their name into history as a hero, and the other, a murderess...

Mash
The other that looked like a Saber seemed to know Marie...

Marie Antoinette
...That's right.
If she knows who I am, then...

Marie Antoinette
Perhaps she's Chevalier d'Eon?
I've no proof, though.

Dr. Roman
Chevalier d'Eon... A spy with Louis XV's intelligence agency, the Secret du Roi.

Dr. Roman
She was also a Dragoon, and a plenipotentiary minister... She, no, maybe he?

Marie Antoinette
It matters little, mage from a distant world.

Marie Antoinette
She was summoned from a different time than me, but her splendid face hasn't changed.

Dr. Roman
I see... It would be wonderful if she would join us...

Jeanne
That might be difficult, I think.

Jeanne
I've lost my Ruler's ability to see True Names, but there is one thing I could see.

Jeanne
All of them have been given "Madness Enhancement," regardless of their alignment or background.

Fou
Kyuu...

Dr. Roman
It's probably the power of the Grail. Even without an episode of madness, it can give them Berserker traits...

Marie Antoinette
Hmph. The goal of a Holy Grail War is to get the Grail, but they already have it.

Marie Antoinette
It's not fair!

Jeanne
But that leaves one mystery.
Why were you summoned?

Jeanne
...This is just a theory.

Jeanne
Despite the fact that the Holy Grail War hasn't begun, someone already has the Grail.

Jeanne
This is a reversal of causality. A bug, if you will,
and perhaps the Grail is resisting it.

Jeanne
The greater the opponent, the more powerful the Grail's reaction.

Mash
...I see.
In other words, somewhere else in France–

Jeanne
Indeed. There may be other Servants summoned here like Marie.

Marie Antoinette
Oh my!
That means I can meet even more people, right?

Amadeus
That's not necessarily a good thing.
It may just mean more enemies.

Amadeus
But whichever it is, we should start searching for them as soon as we can.

Amadeus
Before the other Jeanne finds them.

Jeanne
Indeed.
I've lost my ability to detect Servants.

Jeanne
So we'll have to depend on Mr. Roman.

Dr. Roman
Sure thing. I can't match a full-powered Ruler,
but I can search farther than a Servant.

Marie Antoinette
Let's take a little break first!
You're all tired, right?

Mash
Yes Master, rest for a bit.
We'll stand watch.

--ARROW--

Mash
I'm going to patrol the area.
Jeanne, please wait here.

Fou
Fou, Fou!

Jeanne
...

Marie Antoinette
Is something wrong, Jeanne?
You seem defeated... Are you tired?

Jeanne
Marie... No, I'm not tired.
I am a Servant, after all.

Marie Antoinette
Perhaps you're saddened by the state France is in...
I mean, are you disappointed?

Jeanne
No, I'm not disappointed.
Thank you for your concern, Marie.

Jeanne
But... Seeing those familiar towns in flames is a bit hard to bear.

Marie Antoinette
Yes... For you, especially, this era is exactly like it was when you were alive.

Marie Antoinette
It's different than what I feel inside...
Memories that are still going on.

Marie Antoinette
Yes! Why don't we take this time to talk?
Girls' night out!

Jeanne
...Excuse me?

Marie Antoinette
Oh, is that strange? But both you and I were summoned in the bloom of our youth.

Marie Antoinette
You see? I'm in the middle of puberty, right?
So I love talking about love and romance!

Jeanne
Ahaha... I appreciate the offer, but that's hard for me.
I know of compassion, but not romance.

Marie Antoinette
But... You're missing out on life! It's not too late to start! Fall in love with someone, Jeanne!

Jeanne
Of course, if I get the chance.
Have you fallen in love, Marie?

Marie Antoinette
Heheh, of course.

Marie Antoinette
I fell in love with a boy who proposed to me at age 7.
I think it was my first love.

Marie Antoinette
And when I was 14, I fell in love with the king I married.

Jeanne
14! That's kind of amazing.

Jeanne
When I was that age... I was working and playing in the fields with the other children.

Marie Antoinette
That sounds fun, too! I'm jealous.
It must be such fun to be able to go wherever you want!

Jeanne
Yes, it was fun.
What I lacked in romance, I made up for in friendship.

Marie Antoinette
Did all the boys like you?

Jeanne
Hmm, my hair was short then, so they treated me like one of the guys–

Marie Antoinette
Oh, I'm so glad I became a Servant!
I can't believe I'm having girl talk with Jeanne d'Arc.

Marie Antoinette
It's good to be a queen!

Jeanne
The honor is mine. Who would've thought that I get to talk to the famous Marie Antoinette.

Jeanne
It's good to be a Servant.

Marie Antoinette
I'm just glad that this isn't a real Holy Grail War.
Otherwise, we couldn't chat like this–

Jeanne
...Marie.

Marie Antoinette
Yes.

Mash
I'm sorry, both of you.
It appears to be an enemy attack!

Jeanne
I knew it.

Marie Antoinette
Oh my.

Mash
I'll go wake up Master!

Marie Antoinette
Come Jeanne, let us fight like proper Servants.

Marie Antoinette
Bravely, gallantly, whole-heartedly, and yet beautifully, like a maiden in love.

Marie Antoinette
That's what you and I are at our core.
Neither saints, nor queens.

Jeanne
...The way I fight has little to do with beauty and elegance, I'm afraid.

Mash
Master, your orders!

Marie Antoinette
Come, Fujimaru.

Marie Antoinette
I'll show you the power that I couldn't show you before!

Marie Antoinette
—Tomboy princess, coming through!
I'll dance brilliantly, like glasswork!

--BATTLE--

Dr. Roman
Servants detected!
Also, multiple life-forms detected!

Mash
...Master!

  1. Prepare for battle!
 
  Select: Prepare for battle!

===Branch End===

Mash
Yes!

Amadeus
What a drag. I've detected it, too.
Having good hearing isn't always a good thing.

Amadeus
In fact, I hate this sound so much it makes me want to scream.

Amadeus
The sound of an enemy's footstep, is worse than a high-pitched trumpet.

Mash
You can hear them at this distance?

Amadeus
Of course. I became a Servant because of my music.
I can detect any sound wave in the air.

Amadeus
For instance, the sound of you and Maria's sleeping when we were camping. I enjoyed listening to them both.

Amadeus
But, not just the sound of you sleeping. I've recorded all the tiny sounds your body makes in my Wolfgang Recorder!

Mash
!!!
A-A sexually harassing Servant!

Marie Antoinette
I'm sorry, Mash.
As his keeper, I apologize.

Marie Antoinette
But bear with him a little. Without his ears, he's nothing more than a pervert!

Amadeus
What are you saying?
Human beings create filth just by living!

Amadeus
Only by realizing that can you create true music.
Life is filth, and music cleanses it.

Amadeus
—Now then, I hear footsteps, and drawn swords.

Amadeus
Naught but boorish noise.
I don't write my music for fools, but–

Amadeus
You've come all this way.
I shall play my Requiem of Death for you!

--BATTLE--

Mash
All that's left are the Servants!

Marie Antoinette
Is everybody all right?
Does anyone need healing?

Jeanne
We're good here.
What about you, Mash?

Mash
I'm fine. Doctor, are they here yet?

Dr. Roman
–They're coming.
Are you ready?

Berserk Rider
...Hello, everybody.
What a lonely night.

Jeanne
–Who are you?

Berserk Rider
Who?
Let's see, I wonder who I am.

Berserk Rider
I forced myself to be a righteous saint, but in this world I'm a slave to a broken one.

Jeanne
A broken saint...

Berserk Rider
Yes, thanks to her, my reason has left and I've gone mad.

Berserk Rider
I am doing everything I can to hold myself back.
What a mess this is.

Berserk Rider
So while I appreciate your hopes, I cannot join you.

Berserk Rider
You don't want a Servant who'll stab you from behind at every single opportunity, do you?

Jeanne
Then why did you come here?

Berserk Rider
...My task was to observe you, but my waning reason whispers that I should test you.

Berserk Rider
You face the Dragon Witch.
Disaster incarnate, riding on the "ultimate dragon."

Berserk Rider
If you cannot surpass me, you will never defeat her.

Berserk Rider
Defeat me.
Plunge your blade into my heart without hesitation.

Berserk Rider
My True Name is Martha. Now come to me, Iron Dragon Tarasque!

Dr. Roman
Martha... Saint Martha?
Watch out, everyone!

Dr. Roman
She once defeated a dragon with nothing but prayers!
If she's a Servant, that means–

Berserk Rider
Let us see if you are capable of slaying me–!

Dr. Roman
She's a dragon rider!

--BATTLE--

Berserk Rider
...I see. That's enough.

Jeanne
Martha. Did you–

Berserk Rider
Hold back?
Of course not.

Berserk Rider
This is fine, it's fine this way.
Seriously, don't make a saint massacre you!

Berserk Rider
...Listen, let me tell you one last thing. You'll never beat the dragon controlled by the Dragon Witch.

Berserk Rider
There's only one way to surpass that type of dragon.
Go to Lyon...the city once known as Lyon.

Berserk Rider
It won't be a saint who defeats the dragon, nor a princess. Ever since ancient times, only a "Dragon Slayer" is capable of killing a dragon.

Berserk Rider
Tarasque, I'm sorry.
...Next time, I hope I'll be summoned properly.

Jeanne
...Even Saint Martha can't resist her.

Mash
She'd undergone Madness Enhancement, in addition to being summoned. Perhaps it can't be helped.

Mash
Normally it would be impossible to even talk to her.

Mash
The only reason we were able to communicate was because of her incredible self-control.

Marie Antoinette
Yes. She was a peaceful, yet fierce as a person.
I could tell.

Marie Antoinette
She is the Iron Saint. She is a woman like adamantite,
who solves things with her fists in the end.

Amadeus
They say she defeated the Tarasque with a sermon, but I bet she just beat it up.

Amadeus
Anyway, thanks to her, we know where we're going.

Amadeus
We should hurry, right?
Let's get going to Lyon.

Mash
...I'm surprised. Amadeus seemed like, um, the type of person who'd hate to travel on foot...

Marie Antoinette
Oh no, Amadeus loves traveling.
He's traveled to many places ever since he was a child.

Amadeus
...Well, I suppose it's true that I'm used to traveling.

Marie Antoinette
Hehe, I'm getting excited.
I wonder what, and who, waits for us in Lyon!

Marie Antoinette
Come on, Jeanne.
Let's get going.

Jeanne
...Right!

Section 7: Search for the Dragon Slayer

Show/Hide Story Chapter

Jeanne Alter
Did Rider commit suicide? It's troublesome that she retained her sanity even with Madness Enhancement.

Jeanne Alter
Still, she likely fought with all of her might.
If that's the case, we can't let our guard down.

Jeanne Alter
Next time, "he" and I will mobilize.
I'm also taking the Servants summoned today.

Jeanne Alter
Please contact the Berserk Assassin.

Gilles
Understood.
If I were who I was before, I would've stopped you.

Gilles
But now, you're perfect Jeanne!
You don't even need luck!

Gilles
Please trample over them as much as you wish.

Jeanne Alter
Gilles. Which do you think is the real one?
Me, or her?

Gilles
Of course it's you.
Are you listening, Jeanne?

Gilles
You were burned at the stake.
Betrayed, by everyone!

Gilles
Charles VII left you to die, because he didn't want to pay the ransom!

Gilles
Not a single person rose to bravely fight for your return!

Gilles
And what was the cause of all this?
It was God! It was our God, mocking us!

Gilles
Thus, we deny God.
Don't we, Jeanne?

Jeanne Alter
...Yes. Yes you're right, Gilles.
I have nothing left.

Jeanne Alter
My soldiers are gone, and my admirers fled. The king betrayed me and the bishop burnt me in the name of God.

Jeanne Alter
—I was wrong.
No, everything was wrong.

Jeanne Alter
Not just what I believed in. The very country that allowed me to exist was wrong.

Jeanne Alter
This mistake must be righted.
Jeanne d'Arc was a mistake.

Jeanne Alter
So let us do as they decided, and make it all so it never happened.

Jeanne Alter
My salvation of the country was itself a fatal mistake.

Gilles
...Jeanne.
Please, don't put yourself under such stress.

Gilles
This is a divine punishment. Nothing more. Your revenge is righteous. What you saved, you may destroy.

Gilles
Isn't that all there is to it?

Jeanne Alter
...You're right, Gilles. What you say is extreme, but it brings me strength.

Jeanne Alter
Let's go, Berserker, Assassin...
This is getting complicated. May I use your True Names?

Jeanne Alter
Lancelot, Knight of the Lake; and the Executioner, Charles-Henri Sanson.

Jeanne Alter
Mount your wyverns.
I shall lead you.

Lancelot
—Urrrrrr.

Sanson
...Of course, Master.
Only I am fit to take the head of the Queen.

Citizen
...And that's what happened...

Marie Antoinette
I see, I see! Understood.
How interesting. How very interesting!

Marie Antoinette
Thank you, kind sir.
Farewell, until we meet again!

Citizen
Y-Yes ma'am! Um, by the way, you seem to be of noble birth. What is your name–

Marie Antoinette
My name is Marie Antoinette!
Hehe, it might be worth remembering.

Marie Antoinette
...Keep passing it down for 360 years or so, and someone might be in for a surprise, hehe.

Marie Antoinette
Guys!
I got the information!

Jeanne
Sorry, Marie.
I will cause a panic if I go into town...

Marie Antoinette
Don't worry, Jeanne.
We're both Servants, you know.

Marie Antoinette
Now, I've got some great information.
The city St. Martha told us of, Lyon.

Marie Antoinette
To put it simply, Lyon was destroyed a little while ago.
Its refugees have settled here.

Jeanne
The "used to be" nuance interests me.
...So it's just as I thought?

Marie Antoinette
Yes. The town is filled with monsters that seem to have risen from the depths of Hell.

Marie Antoinette
But I think what came before that is the important part.
They said Lyon had a protector.

Mash
A protector?

Marie Antoinette
A knight with a large sword, who defeated wyverns and skeletons.

Jeanne
I see. Perhaps that's the Servant Martha spoke of before.

Marie Antoinette
Yes. But a little while ago, some scary people came.

Marie Antoinette
Servants, probably. He was overwhelmed by their numbers and is now missing.

Marie Antoinette
And so Lyon was destroyed...

Mash
I hope he's alive...
No, let's believe in the words of St. Martha.

Marie Antoinette
Oh, right. Charles VII visited the village and General Gilles de Rais marshalled the routed soldiers, they said.

Jeanne
Gilles!

Marie Antoinette
He's attempting to attack Lyon and take back the city.

Mash
I'm sure it would be...difficult to meet with him.

Marie Antoinette
Why is that?
Gilles de Rais is an admirer of Jeanne, right?

Marie Antoinette
If Jeanne asks, he's sure to lend a helping hand?

Jeanne
...That's precisely the reason.
He knows that I've become the Dragon Witch.

Jeanne
He wouldn't accept me like that.

Marie Antoinette
...I see.
I'm not sure if that's quite right.

Marie Antoinette
But I understand that you might not want to see him!
You're a girl, after all.

Marie Antoinette
Yes, I agree we don't need to see him!
We're in a hurry, after all.

Marie Antoinette
I don't think normal soldiers can handle all those monsters in Lyon, anyway...

Jeanne
...You're quite right.
Let's defeat them on our own.

  1. We can do it.
  2. No problem.
  Select: We can do it.

  Select: No problem.

===Branch End===

Jeanne
Fujimaru...
You're right. This is nothing.

Marie Antoinette
Yes, that's what it means to be a {(M) boy /(F) commander}!
Here's your reward!

Mash
What?

Marie Antoinette
Well? Was it good?

  1. Thank you!
  2. ...
  Select: Thank you!
Mash
Senpai...
You have a goofy grin on your face.

  Select: ...
Mash
Master, hang in there.
...Jeez!

===Branch End===

Amadeus
She finally went and did it, huh?
Sorry, just ignore that.

Amadeus
Maria has a bad habit of kissing everything.
It caused chaos in the palace.

Amadeus
There were actually factions formed of people she'd kissed and people she hadn't.

Amadeus
No playwright would touch a story about a court that almost destroyed itself before the revolution.

Mash
Master, come on. Snap out of it.
Snap out of it!

Marie Antoinette
Huh? You guys don't do kisses?

Marie Antoinette
Maybe like when your heart feels like someone's squeezing it... You do it too, right Jeanne?

Jeanne
I-I do not! I do not!
Only with someone I was going to marry—

Amadeus
...Huh?
Hey, hold on a second.

Amadeus
Those soldiers over there seem ready to kill.
I don't think they're back from the front.

Jeanne
...Seems like they've become bandits.
This tragedy is enough to shatter anyone's mind.

Jeanne
We cannot let the townspeople suffer.
Let us capture them.

Mash
Got it. Back of the blade it is!

Amadeus
...But that's a shield right?

--BATTLE--

Mash
We've tied up the bandits, let's hand them to the town's people. I think we can leave the rest to them.

Mash
All right, let's head out everybody!

--ARROW--

Marie Antoinette
We're almost there, don't you think?

Jeanne
Yes, we should be.

Jeanne
...The thought of having to see a ruined town again, is heartbreaking.

Jeanne
...There's no one here.

Mash
Doctor, any signs of life–

Dr. Roman
...

Mash
Doctor?

Mash
I'm sorry.
Reception's not very good here.

Mash
Let's split up and search for that "Dragon Slayer" Martha mentioned.

Marie Antoinette
Right. Let's see which of us finds that person first.
Amadeus and I will take the west side.

Jeanne
Then Mash and I will take the east.

Mash
Understood.
Let's go, Master!

Jeanne
This was once a beautiful town.
Why would that Dragon Witch do this–

  1. That's a fake.
  2. That's not you.
  Select: That's a fake.

  Select: That's not you.

===Branch End===

Jeanne
That'd be nice, but... Huh?
Did I just hear a voice?

Mash
Yes, faintly. It may be a survivor.
Let's go check it out.

Jeanne
...Ugh!

Mash
Living Dead!

Jeanne
Turning the townsfolk into monsters...
This is beyond heresy!

Mash
We can't save them anymore...
Ready for battle, Master!

  1. Rest in peace.
  2. Be at peace.
  Select: Rest in peace.

  Select: Be at peace.

===Branch End===

Mash
Yes, Master!

--BATTLE--

Mash
Even more enemies!

Marie Antoinette
Yes, just as I thought! I hurried back, but they're swarming over here too!

Marie Antoinette
You may not need any help, but I can't just sit around!

Marie Antoinette
I will help you, Fujimaru!

--BATTLE--

Jeanne
Wyvern!

Amadeus
What? I am tired of seeing them. They are no more than third-rate instruments, time to get rid of them!

--BATTLE--

Jeanne
Phew! Enemies eliminated.
May their souls rest in peace–

G:???
Peace... Do they desire peace?
That is such a foolish thing to say.

G:???
They have no peace in their souls.
There is certainly none residing in us Servants–

G:???
This world has been frozen for years...

Mash
...Servant!

Jeanne
–Who are you?

Phantom
Correct.
People call me–The Phantom of the Opera.

Phantom
By order of the "Dragon Witch,"
this town is under my absolute control.

Phantom
Now, now, now.
This is the middle of Hell, where the dead live.

Phantom
–What are you going to do?

  1. We'll send you flying.
  2. We'll crush you.
  Select: We'll send you flying.

  Select: We'll crush you.

===Branch End===

Mash
Just like that, Master!
Here we go!

--BATTLE--

Phantom
Ugh! Still, my mission is accomplished.
Though I shall never be rewarded, never.

Phantom
This is where my song ends, but the real Hell starts now.

Phantom
Rejoice, oh Holy Maiden!
Your evil has grown even more than you.

Jeanne
–Be silent.
It must be hard to even talk now.

Phantom
These are not words. This is a song.
To lament your future, and to mourn it.

Phantom
Forget about the Dragon Slayer...
Run to the ends of the earth.

Phantom
If lady luck is on your side–you might just have a chance to escape.

Phantom
Here it comes. The Dragon is here. The Devil is here.
An evil dragon unlike any of you have seen before.

Amadeus
You're a stubborn one, aren't you?
The coda has ended, now back to hell with you.

Mash
An evil...dragon?

Dr. Roman
Finally, I got through to you!
Everyone, I recommend that we evacuate!

Dr. Roman
This reading is way beyond a Servant–
It's indicating an "ultra-size lifeform."

Dr. Roman
It's approaching with incredible speed!

Mash
...Beyond a Servant!
Can such a lifeform even exist in this world?

Dr. Roman
Of course they can!
The world's a big place!

Dr. Roman
Um, sorry. Save the chatter for later!
I am also detecting 3 Servants heading this way.

Marie Antoinette
...It must be them.
This is quite a problem.

Amadeus
The orchestra is done. Let's get out of here.
I know we just wasted our effort, but that's life.

Mash
But... Wait, please.

Mash
If the reading is truly beyond that of a Servant, then we need the "Dragon Slayer" more than ever.

Mash
That person must be in this town, right?
We can at least look for that Servant–

Dr. Roman
No, no, no.
No time, no time!

Jeanne
But if we abandon that Servant now, we may never get another chance!

Mash
Master, your orders!

  1. Find the "Dragon Slayer".
  2. If we run here, things will get worse. Let's fight!
  Select: Find the "Dragon Slayer".

  Select: If we run here, things will get worse. Let's fight!

===Branch End===

Mash
Understood!

Marie Antoinette
Amadeus, let's prepare for battle.
...Will you fight with me?

Amadeus
Didn't you just order me to fight?
You just need to stand proudly, and smile as always.

Amadeus
Don't worry yourself over me.
If things get bad, I'll run away on my own!

Marie Antoinette
Yes. That's the Amadeus I know.
It's okay, we just have to buy some time.

Marie Antoinette
I won't die.
Not here, at least.

Mash
Doctor! Are you detecting any other Servants?

Dr. Roman
Searching now.
Hang on a moment!

Dr. Roman
–Right. There's a faint reading from the castle up ahead!

Jeanne
Let's go!

Section 8: Attack of the Giant Dragon

Show/Hide Story Chapter

Mash
...There you are!

Jeanne
What a terrible wound!

G:???
...Ugh!

Mash
Oh!

G:???
One after... Another.

Jeanne
Please wait! We are on your side!
At least, we have no intention of causing you harm!

G:???
???

Mash
At any rate, please hurry!
A dragon is approaching!

Mash
Several Servants are with it, as well.
We are at an overwhelming disadvantage here–

G:???
A dragon, huh...
...I see.

G:???
That's why I was summoned and then attacked.

Mash
We will help you, let's get out of here!

G:???
I'm sorry, I owe you one!

Marie Antoinette
Hurry, Fujimaru!
Even we can sense it approaching!

Dr. Roman
It's within plain sight now!
This is... No, it can't be!

Mash
Wyverns can't compare to that thing.
That's a real dragon!

Jeanne Alter
...I was wondering what you found, turns out it's just another dying Servant.

Jeanne Alter
Very well, you can all die together!

Marie Antoinette
It's attacking!

Amadeus
No, get back, Maria!
Your Noble Phantasm is useless here!

Mash
I-I am going out!

  1. Don't be ridiculous!
  2. What are you saying?
  Select: Don't be ridiculous!

  Select: What are you saying?

===Branch End===

Jeanne
Mash, we'll do it together!

Mash
R-Right!

Jeanne Alter
Incinerate them... Fafnir!

Jeanne
"Luminosite–"

Mash
Deploying Virtual Noble Phantasm!

Jeanne
"Eternelle!!"

Marie Antoinette
Kya!

Dr. Roman
Whoa!
What an immense amount of energy!

Dr. Roman
You all right!?
Can you hear me?

Dr. Roman
...S-Say something!

  1. Just shut up!
  2. Please stop talking!
  Select: Just shut up!

  Select: Please stop talking!

===Branch End===

Jeanne
Ugh!
Just as I thought, this is...

Mash
I can't hold on anymore, it's no use!

G:???
–No, looks like you made it.
Thanks to you, my power's restored for a little.

Jeanne
...Huh?

G:???
–It's been a while Evil Dragon Fafnir. If you've resurrected, I will send you back to your slumber...

Jeanne Alter
...Fafnir is trembling...
That Servant, could it be–?

Siegfried
Hear me, One Who Rules the Blue Sky!
My name is Siegfried! He who once defeated thee!

Siegfried
Noble Phantasm, Release!
"Bal–mung!"

Jeanne Alter
Dammit!
Fafnir, climb up now!

Siegfried
...(pant, pant, pant)
Sorry, this is the best I can do.

Siegfried
Get out of there, before they come back...

Jeanne
Everyone, let's retreat while we can!

Jeanne Alter
It's dangerous. Considering what's to come,
I can't exhaust Fafnir.

Jeanne Alter
...If they use that sword again it may be a problem.

Jeanne Alter
Berserker, Saber. That "Dragon Slayer" is the prize.
Concentrate on getting him.

Jeanne Alter
Berserk Assassin will be joining us soon.
This time, finish them off for good.

Dr. Roman
I am not detecting the ultra-size lifeform anymore.
But the enemies are still on our tails, hurry!

Mash
Senpai, I want a horse!

Marie Antoinette
Sorry, this is a one-seater!

Amadeus
I'm used to traveling, but this is a first for me!
This is just us retreating, right?

Mash
Master, don't fall behind!

  1. Sorry, but my leg...
  2. Let's fight back.
  Select: Sorry, but my leg...
Mash
In that case, well!

  Select: Let's fight back.
Mash
I suppose so, in that case...

===Branch End===

Jeanne
Wait, please. I see something up ahead.
That's the... French army!

Jeanne
They're being attacked by the wyverns!
We need to go help them!

Mash
Master, here they come!

  1. Ready to fight back!
  2. We'll just have to do it!
  Select: Ready to fight back!

  Select: We'll just have to do it!

===Branch End===

Mash
Right, Senpai!
In for a penny, in for a pound!

--BATTLE--

Mash
There are zombies heading this way, too.
No problem, we'll just fight it out!

Mash
Let's keep this battle going, Master!

--BATTLE--

Mash
I've disposed of the first wave of wyverns.
Next up...

G:???
A—Urrrrr!

H:???
...

Amadeus
...Damn you!

Marie Antoinette
–My, what a coincidence.
I've never forgotten your face, you lazy artisan.

H:???
That's good to hear. I've never forgotten yours either.
Your face, and your pale white neck.

H:???
At the same time, I feel like this is destiny.
That you and I share a special connection.

H:???
Don't we? The fate of a executioner killing the same person twice, I feel like only we share that kind of connection.

Amadeus
...Not only in life, but even now you're eager to execute Maria?

Amadeus
Charles-Henri Sanson.
Could it be that you are genuinely mad?

Sanson
...As a human, it pains me to discuss our relationship with a low-life like you.

Sanson
Amadeus, you claimed all lives, all humans, are filthy.
Not I. Humans are sacred, precious things.

Sanson
That's why we executioners respect life.
We are incompatible, you and I.

Sanson
Trash who couldn't even love humans, trash who couldn't understand her, has no right to be next to her.

G:???
...Arrrrrrrrrrr!

Mash
Ugh!

Mash
What an attack!
Master, please stand back!

Mash
This Berserker... He's much more frightening than any Servant we've faced so far!

Marie Antoinette
Look at the sky!
Look how many wyverns are in flight!

Jeanne
Ugh! I'm going to help the French army!
You two, take care of that Servant!

Sanson
My sword of execution is pure.

Sanson
It's not for the likes of you who do not submit to death, but...

Sanson
Thinking of it, this entire nation is an execution site. Now, I shall remove your head with one strike!

???
Arrrrrrrrrrrrr!

--BATTLE--

???
...Arrrrrrrrrr!

Sanson
...Damn. What is with that Servant?
I mean, that's beyond indestructible!

Mash
Haaa... Ugh!

Marie Antoinette
Sanson... What's the meaning of this...

Amadeus
Dammit, now there are more wyverns, too!
If only they'd focus on that crazy decapitating maniac!

Mash
Where's Jeanne?

Jeanne
...Run!

Soldier
Wh-What?

Jeanne
Never mind, just make a run for it now!
Do you want to die?

Commander
D-Don't run!
That's the Dragon Witch over there!

Commander
Take her down!
Avenge your hometown!

Jeanne
Ugh!

--ARROW--

Berserk Assassin
Wyvern. Start off by eating the soldier!

Jeanne
Aaaaarrrghhhhhhhh!

Jeanne
(pant, pant, pant)...

C:Soldier
H-Hey, isn't that the Dragon Witch?

C:Soldier
Why is she fighting the dragons?

E:Soldier
Don't ask me, but this is perfect.
Let them both go down.

E:Soldier
They burned my homeland to the ground.
I hope both of them die!

Jeanne
...

Berserk Assassin
The people you're protecting are saying all kinds of things about you, my Saint.

Berserk Assassin
Even though the only reason they can safely watch this is because you're dealing with the wyverns.

Jeanne
...Please leave me be.

Berserk Assassin
Heh, how stubborn. If you're worried about your lack of manpower, then by all means, why don't you ask the French army?

Berserk Assassin
Oh, forgive me.
You're the "Dragon Witch" now, aren't you?

Berserk Assassin
A saint cruelly burned to death and then resurrected for revenge.

Berserk Assassin
A beautiful, ephemeral, and ultimately ridiculous tale.
And look, you're still struggling–

Berserk Assassin
Because this time, they see you as the enemy!

Berserk Assassin
Can you tell me, Jeanne d'Arc?
How do you feel right now?

Berserk Assassin
Do you wish to die?
Or do you wish to kill?

Berserk Assassin
Do you long to drive that flag into those soldiers' hearts like a stake?

Jeanne
...Normally, I'd fall into distress.
I'd fall into despair.

Jeanne
But, unfortunately–I'm an optimist in life.
Their hatred of me gives them the strength to rise.

Jeanne
And that's a good thing.

Berserk Assassin
...Are you sane?

Jeanne
Good question. People questioned my sanity when I decided to bring salvation to France.

Berserk Assassin
Yes. Whether light or dark, it just means both of us are insane!

Berserk Assassin
Wyvern!

Jeanne
Ugh!

F:???
Artillery, FIRE!

Jeanne
Huh?

Berserk Assassin
Ugh!

Jeanne
Gilles!

Gilles
Prioritize all surrounding dragons!
Fire all cannons!

Jeanne
Now!

Berserk Assassin
Curse you!

Berserk Assassin
Heh–I expect nothing less from a Ruler.
Even with your power stolen, your physical strength...

Berserk Assassin
Retreat!
Lancelot! Sanson!

Jeanne
Wait!

Lancelot
...A...
A—Urrrrrrr!!

Mash
Huh?

Sanson
...It would seem that Jeanne d'Arc has touched the strings of his heart.

Sanson
Now what, Carmilla?
Will he even listen to reason?

Berserk Assassin
...Retreat! We have no obligation to stay with a black knight that's lost his mind.

Berserk Assassin
Lancelot! Buy us as much time as you can.
Until the moment your life is extinguished!

Lancelot
...Arrrrrrrrrrr!

Jeanne
Ugh!
Why are you...

Mash
W-We have to stop them!
Master, it's a once in a lifetime chance!

Mash
It breaks the code of chivalry, but we have to bring down Lancelot!

  1. All right, let's do it!
  2. That's clearly no longer a knight!
  Select: All right, let's do it!

  Select: That's clearly no longer a knight!

===Branch End===

--BATTLE--

Lancelot
A-Arthur...

Jeanne
Arthur?
...You mean your king, Arthur?

Jeanne
–Unfortunately, I am Jeanne d'Arc.
I am not Arthur, the king you seek.

Mash
...
Oh, I see.

  1. What?
  2. What's wrong?
  Select: What?

  Select: What's wrong?

===Branch End===

Mash
I know why Lancelot was so obsessed with Jeanne.
She resembles Arthur, doesn't she?

Mash
Not her face, but her soul–

Lancelot
My...king...I...please...

Jeanne
...

Mash
Jeanne, let's go.

Jeanne
Yes!

Gilles
Jeanne! Please wait!
You are indeed Jeanne d'Arc!

Gilles
Not the Dragon Witch, but a bona fide saint!

Jeanne
...

Marie Antoinette
...Shouldn't you answer?

Jeanne
If I answer, I will endanger Gilles's position.
For now, we can't depend on them.

Jeanne
At the very least, we must endure the scorn of those who once fought by our side.

Marie Antoinette
But... Do they really hate you?

Jeanne
–Let's go.

Commander
General.
What was that just now...

Gilles
I don't know. I don't know, but...re-examine everything we know of the Dragon Witch.

Gilles
Was it truly Jeanne d'Arc who attacked Charles VII?
Or some evil imposter?

Gilles
It's possible... That there may be two Jeanne d'Arcs in this world.

Section 9: Pause

Show/Hide Story Chapter

Mash
...It looks to be an abandoned fort.
Let's rest here for now.

Jeanne
How is Siegfried's wound?

Marie Antoinette
My Noble Phantasm can heal wounds, just a bit.
But not this one, it seems.

Siegfried
...It looks like some kind of curse.

Jeanne
Why were you in that city?

Siegfried
It seems that I was summoned relatively early.

Siegfried
I was drifting without a Master...
That's when I saw the town being attacked.

Marie Antoinette
So you went to rescue them?

Siegfried
Yes... Though it's not like when I was alive.
Still, with Balmung, I managed somehow.

Siegfried
When you're attacked by multiple Servants, it's not easy to pull off.

Siegfried
...Then one of them hid me in the castle. My wound wouldn't heal, and I couldn't ask anyone for help either.

Siegfried
I had no choice but to wait.

Mash
Was it a woman who could control a dragon?

Siegfried
Dragon? No, it was a turtle... No, a dragon... A dragon turtle... Now that you mention it, is it possible for that kind of dragon to exist?

Siegfried
Oh. She had the aura of a Ruler, similar to what you have.

Jeanne
It was St. Martha, I'd say.

Siegfried
So that's St. Martha, the one who drove off the evil dragon Tarasque. I want to thank her–

Mash
...

Siegfried
I see, then never mind.
I am sure she's prepared for the worst.

Siegfried
Still, I feel guilty that she saved me when I was useless.

Jeanne
Baptism Rites could probably remove this curse. But, a Servant of considerably high rank must perform it–

Marie Antoinette
Jeanne, you can do that, can't you?

Jeanne
...No. I tried, but my power alone isn't enough.

Jeanne
Multiple curses have been put on Siegfried.
...It's a miracle he's even alive.

Jeanne
We need another Saint to remove multiple curses at once.

Mash
A Servant who was a saint... Hmm?

Dr. Roman
...Yes, we do have a chance.

Dr. Roman
If St. Jeanne d'Arc...
Sorry, Jeanne the "Dragon Witch" has the Holy Grail.

Dr. Roman
There is a possibility–that a Saint was summoned as the result of the Counter Force.

Dr. Roman
St. Martha was actually summoned, right?
Do you guys know any Saint Servants to ask?

Siegfried
You're the only Servants that I've ever met.

Mash
Jeanne and I don't know any other Servants beside the ones who became enemies.

Marie Antoinette
...Staying together is probably safer, but maybe it be better if we split up?

Marie Antoinette
Unless we remove the curses on "Dragon Slayer"
Siegfried, we can't defeat Fafnir can we?

Jeanne
But...

Marie Antoinette
Jeanne?

Jeanne
Oh, well.
...It's nothing.

Jeanne
You are right. I think that's a reasonable idea.
What do you think, Fujimaru?

  1. Let's look for that Saint.
  2. Break into teams and look around France.
  Select: Let's look for that Saint.

  Select: Break into teams and look around France.

===Branch End===

Mash
"Fortunately" may not be appropriate to say, but the French territories have already been reduced to less than half.

Mash
Searching them should be easy.
How to split up is the problem...

Dr. Roman
Whoa, I'm sorry to interrupt, but look at those wandering monsters.

Mash
Wander... What?

Dr. Roman
...Well, never mind. Anyway, we've got enemies. Let's deal with them now so we can continue our discussion.

--BATTLE--

Marie Antoinette
I just had a great idea!
Let's draw lots right now!

Mash
...Excuse me?

Marie Antoinette
These things should be settled by drawing lots!
Amadeus, please prepare some!

Amadeus
You just want to draw lots, don't you? ...All right, all right, I'll make some. Let's split up based on that.

Jeanne
I am with, Marie.

Marie Antoinette
Amadeus. Please look after Fujimaru and the others.

Amadeus
To be honest, I'm nervous about leaving your side.
Not that there's a time when I'm not nervous about you.

Amadeus
...But lots are derived from fate.
If I defy fate, I might invite misfortune.

Amadeus
Well, you can use your Noble Phantasm to escape, and Jeanne is a defense specialist.

Amadeus
I'm rather worried about our side.

Mash
...

  1. Mash's skill is as good as hers.
  2. Actually, Mash's is better.
  Select: Mash's skill is as good as hers.

  Select: Actually, Mash's is better.

===Branch End===

Mash
Master... Thank you!

Amadeus
Actually, what I meant was it's because we have Siegfried who's wounded.

Amadeus
Oh, well. I was taken advantage of.

Marie Antoinette
Amadeus, make sure you get along with them.
You tend to be misunderstood by friends.

Amadeus
I don't want to hear it from you.
Anyway, Maria...

Marie Antoinette
Yeah?

Amadeus
Well, never mind. Just be careful along the way.
Don't try to find a pastry shop even if you get hungry.

Marie Antoinette
Oh! My heart beat thinking that you might propose to me again!

Amadeus
—Wait. Why would you bring that up now?

Mash
Propose? What?
Marie? And Amadeus?

Dr. Roman
Oh, you didn't know Mash?
It's a pretty popular story.

Dr. Roman
When Mr. Amadeus, standing right there, was 6 years old, he proposed to Marie who was 7 years old.

Marie Antoinette
Yes, I reached out to him as he fell, then I saw him staring at me with his starry eyes–

Marie Antoinette
"Thank you, nice lady. My name is Amadeus."

Marie Antoinette
"If a beautiful lady like you has no fiance yet, could I be the first one?"

Marie Antoinette
He said that to me!
I'd never been flattered like that since I was born!

Amadeus
Who knew the story would get passed down...
this is a nightmare...

Marie Antoinette
Hehehe. Of course it would.
I was so happy that I told everybody about it.

Amadeus
So it was you! You did it!
You turned me down! You're such a femme fatale!

Marie Antoinette
I had no choice. After all, I couldn't decide who would be my fiance.

Marie Antoinette
Besides—

Amadeus
Besides?

Marie Antoinette
You know how my life was after that, don't you? I was happy with my decision. It was best to turn you down.

Marie Antoinette
It turned out that you were loved by many people as a musician. That's why I ended my life as a silly queen.

Marie Antoinette
It can't be helped you see, I have no choice because I'm always in love.

Marie Antoinette
Maybe I was in love with a country named France.
I only loved the country itself, not the people...

Marie Antoinette
Because I was such an arrogant woman, I ended up getting killed by the nation.

Jeanne
Marie, that's...

Amadeus
...What is that?
Are you a fool?

Marie Antoinette
Am I?

Amadeus
Yes, you are. You've got it all wrong.
You say you were in love with France?

Amadeus
You're wrong. It's not that you were in love with the country. France was in love with you.

Marie Antoinette

...Yes. Thank you, Mozart.

Marie Antoinette
Wait. Isn't that strange? Doesn't that mean that I was killed by the people who loved me?

Amadeus
That's right. That's how people are.

Amadeus
Love can easily turn to hatred.
You were hated precisely because you were loved.

Mash
...Hated because she was loved...
They were in love, yet killed the one they loved...

Marie Antoinette
I see. People are complicated. Until I died, well, even after I died, I couldn't reach love.

Marie Antoinette
But I think I'm fine with it now.

Marie Antoinette
I'm Marie Antoinette, a woman loved by France!

Marie Antoinette
See you, Amadeus! I'm leaving now!
When I come back, let me listen to your piano again!

Mash
Oh, Jeanne.
Let's keep in contact with each other at regular intervals.

Mash
It's a Chaldean communication device.
It allows communication via magical energy.

Jeanne
Very well. I'll hold onto it, then.

  1. Take care.
  2. Be careful.
  Select: Take care.

  Select: Be careful.

===Branch End===

Jeanne
Yes, thank you.
Fujimaru, please take care as well.

--BATTLE--

Amadeus
...What I just spoke about was out of line.
Let's get going.

  1. Don't you want to follow her?
  2. Do you still love Marie?
  Select: Don't you want to follow her?

  Select: Do you still love Marie?

===Branch End===

Amadeus
Certainly not. I have no more passion for her.
She was just a special divergence in my fate.

Amadeus
If I'd led a decent life, the divergence would've been that proposal.

Amadeus
Like what you'd call the cornerstone of human history.

Amadeus
What choices would this man, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, have made to end up this way?

Amadeus
No matter what happens. No matter what lovers I meet,
what friends I gain, what bliss I grasp.

Amadeus
I would offer my life to music, and become a scum that abandons all human virtue.

Amadeus
But there's just one thing.

Amadeus
If there were someone who could change my fate, I think it would've been her.

Mash
...Amadeus. Doesn't that mean that you love Marie?

Amadeus
Oh, sure. I do love her. It's just that I'm not in love with her any more. Is there a problem with that.

Mash
...I don't know.
Before you said that we humans are filthy.

Mash
Based on what you said, that means you think Marie is also filthy without exception...

Amadeus
So what? I love anything filthy.
Music is beautiful. We humans are filthy.

Amadeus
You weren't aware of such differences?
It's just a matter of category, isn't it?

Mash
Well...what?
You said that humans only love beautiful things...

Amadeus
It's not that we can only love something beautiful.
What I meant was humans can love beautiful things, too.

Mash
Well...To me, that difference is too abstract...

Amadeus
Hmm, I guess I can't make you understand it with words.

Amadeus
You'll understand someday. You're going to continue your journey with Fujimaru, right?

Amadeus
Then you'll figure it out. When it comes to the topic of humanity, {(M) he /(F) she} is an ideal Senpai.

Mash
Y-Yes!
I can completely understand the "ideal Senpai" part!

  1. Mash!

Siegfried
...Excuse me. I understand that you guys are talking about something nice, but...

Siegfried
It seems enemies are coming.
I'm sorry for being insensitive...

Fou
Fou...Fou, Fou!

Dr. Roman
—What! Darn!
Sieg snatched what I was supposed to do!

Dr. Roman
But I hope you'll understand what made me drop my guard.

Dr. Roman
You know, I thought he was as much of a loser as me,
but he's actually a great person with a deep view on life.

Amadeus
Don't worry about it, Doc.
I feel sympathy for you too.

Amadeus
We are basically good-for-nothing humans...
Or adults, I should say.

Dr. Roman
Yeah, thanks Amadeus!
I've never been this unhappy with words of comfort!

Mash
Enough. Please monitor the battle!

--BATTLE--

Mash
We're done here.
Siegfried, are you all right?

Siegfried
I've recovered enough to walk.
Anything but combat should be fine.

Siegfried
...I'm going to be making trouble for you a little longer. I'm sorry.

Dr. Roman
Let's regroup and set off!
I'm going to put everything into detecting Servants!

Jeanne
...

Marie Antoinette
Jeanne, Jeanne.
You have a scary look on your face!

Jeanne
What? ...D-Do I look scary?

Marie Antoinette
Hehehe, not so much scary as... Stern?

Jeanne
Well... I guess so.
I was doing some thinking.

Marie Antoinette
You mean about the Dragon Witch?

Jeanne
...Yes. Exactly.

Jeanne
From the day I was born I've received God's revelations, and I just ran off without even looking back.

Jeanne
I became a Heroic Spirit after I died, and then was summoned as a Ruler. ...I accept this fact as part of the natural order of things.

Jeanne
I don't understand–anything the Dragon Witch says, not a single word.

Jeanne
I wonder... Who that "me" is.

Marie Antoinette
–Ah, you really are beautiful.
Very, very, very–beautiful.

Jeanne
D-Don't tease me.

Marie Antoinette
Well, it's the truth.
If I were you–

Marie Antoinette
I would probably accept the things the "Dragon Witch" says.

Jeanne
...Marie?

Marie Antoinette
I don't hate the people who executed me.
It's a fact that I'm 90% positive about.

Marie Antoinette
But the 10% that's left...
Or, it might be much smaller than that.

Marie Antoinette
I hated those who killed my children–
just for a little bit.

Jeanne
!!!

Marie Antoinette
They killed my son Charles, to hurt me...
You should truly feel pity for him.

Marie Antoinette
So, if my version of the Dragon Witch appears,
I would probably think "oh, that's the other me."

Marie Antoinette
And accept the things she says.

Marie Antoinette
But that's not the case for you, is it Jeanne?
It's something really great and beautiful.

Marie Antoinette
It's not because you don't want to get dirty, or don't want to believe you are. Nor does that mean you lack something.

Marie Antoinette
You like–people, don't you?

Marie Antoinette
People who try to move forward by groveling around.
The unreasonable ones, the accusers.

Jeanne
...Yes. I do love them. Oh I see, there was no way I could hold a grudge against them–because I loved them.

Marie Antoinette
Yes. That's why France was saved by you.

Marie Antoinette
It's okay, tell the Dragon Witch when you see her.

Jeanne
Tell her?
Well, tell her what?

Marie Antoinette
Say what you want to say out loud.

Marie Antoinette
Say, "You're not me."
Or, "I don't know you."

Jeanne
Marie...
Well, you're right. Absolutely right.

Jeanne
I certainly–Oh, huh?
...Know you, maybe?

Marie Antoinette
You're starting to look serious again...
I'm sorry, it wasn't of any help?

Jeanne
Y-Yes.
...It was very helpful.

Jeanne
When I confront her next time, I'm sure I can tell her what I want to say.

Marie Antoinette
Yes, you should be fine.
Oh, I think it's time to make our regular contact.

Jeanne
That's right we should. Let's do that now–

Section 10: Saint

Show/Hide Story Chapter

Mash
Jeanne and the others will be arriving soon it seems.

Mash
Let's do our best, too.
We'll soon arrive in Thiers.

Amadeus
Thiers...If I recall, it's famous for its knives.
So far it looks like it hasn't been destroyed.

Mash
Doctor, any signs of Servants?

Dr. Roman
I'm checking... All right, there are two Servants in Thiers.

Dr. Roman
Let's make contact right away–

Mash
...Flame just went up in that town, didn't it?

Amadeus
This noise... I hate it! An unprecedented noise, the premonition of an unprecedented demon!

Amadeus
Oh, Muses! Please show mercy!
My body can't stop trembling from fear.

Mash
O-Okay!
Everyone, follow me!

H:???
You! You, you, you!
You cheeky squirrel fom the East!

G:???
Hehehe! Who's the actual cheeky one?
Do you really think a failure like you can beat–

G:???
A true Dragon like myself, Elisabeth?

Elisabeth
Ughhhhh! I'm so upset!
I'll deal with Carmilla later, you die first!

Elisabeth
You creepy stalker!

G:???
I'm not a stalker.
I'm "a devoted bodyguard who acts like a spy."

G:???
I, Kiyohime, am a woman who lives for love.

Elisabeth
Your love violates human rights!

Kiyohime
I don't want to hear it from a pervert with a fetish for blood torture.

Kiyohime
I imagine that you were doing it... as doing THAT. Weren't you?

Elisabeth
What's "doing it?" What's "doing that?"
Don't talk nonsense!

Kiyohime
...What?
Elisabeth, I didn't know that you were–

Elisabeth
Ahhhhhhh! Shut up, shut up, shut up!
I'm going to–kill you!

Kiyohime
You can't kill me because I'll kill you!

Both
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Amadeus
Enough! Stop right there! I can't let you go further. What you're doing is sacrilege against all of voice and sound!

  1. Are they saints?
  2. They aren't saints, are they?
  Select: Are they saints?

  Select: They aren't saints, are they?

Amadeus
No way! Religions would tumble if they're saints.

Mash
Anyway, we have to stop them!
Hey, you two!

Elisabeth
Huh? What?

Kiyohime
I'm busy right now.
Come back the day before yesterday.

Elisabeth
Hmph. You'll no longer be busy soon.
Until the next Holy Grail War that is!

Kiyohime
...Hmph. Frilled-necked lizard.

Elisabeth
Japanese Rat Snake!

Kiyohime
Mexican Bearded Lizard.

Elisabeth
Sharp-Nosed Viper!

Mash
Okay, stop!

Amadeus
Ahhh... My ears will rot... You scum...
Oh no, I'm forbidden to say that. I promised Maria.

Amadeus
By the way, Mash.

Mash
What now?

Amadeus
To our great joy, enemies are coming.
For the sake of my ears, let's deal with them.

Elisabeth
Black Mamba!

Kiyohime
Japanese Grass Lizard!

Amadeus
Let's go! By the time we come back,
I am hoping they'll be done, too!

--BATTLE--

Mash
More are coming!
It's the wyverns this time!

Dr. Roman
No sign of any other Servants besides those two.
Don't worry, go ahead and fight!

--BATTLE--

Dr. Roman
I am getting a powerful reading.
Brace yourselves!

--BATTLE--

Mash
Looks like the enemy assault has stopped...

Elisabeth
Grr, grr, grr, grr, grr!

Kiyohime
...Hmmmmmm.

Mash
We can't let those two to fend for themselves, can we?

Amadeus
...I can't. I've had it. I'm about to vomit.
Yes, I'm leaving those people to you all...

Siegfried
Since I am useless and can't fight, I won't say a thing.
...Sorry.

  1. Both of you, knock it off.
  2. You shouldn't fight.

Did you just say something?

Mash
Well, that you shouldn't fi–

Back off, {(M) Puppy /(F) Deerlet}!

Mash
M-Master? Hey Master, aren't you a little upset?

Elisabeth
...Now I'm pissed.

Kiyohime
You said it. You'll regret your words from the bottom of Hell.

Kiyohime
Elisabeth, let's get started!

Elisabeth
Fine! Just don't get cocky just because you beat some wimpy wyverns!

Elisabeth
I'll show you the terror that a Dragonkin can inflict!

Mash
Did they just team up?

--BATTLE--

Kiyohime
Y-You got me...
Ooooh.

Elisabeth
N-Not bad, you know...
I'll let you call it a day now...

Mash
Now that things have settled, I'd like to hear from you. Would you mind?

Elisabeth
...What?

Kiyohime
I'm a loser snake, in other words, you're kicking a defeated snake when it's down?

Mash
Loser snake? Um, have you ever seen any other Servants besides yourselves?

Elisabeth
Well, I've seen crazy Servants.
Like this one.

Kiyohime
Would you mind not lumping me in with them?
I'm a Berserker with my reasoning intact.

Elisabeth
What's your problem?

Kiyohime
What is it?

Amadeus
...Oh, now I remember. When I was alive, I saw them often. Catfights! They were beyond loud.

Amadeus
Just you wait, in time they'll latch on to your head and make noises like, "gyaggggegggo!"

Elisabeth
I will not!
But that's called shamisen right? Shamisen?

Kiyohime
I've said this many times, but would you not lump me in with them?

Mash
Anyways! You haven't seen any Servants other than the "Dragon Witch" or Carmilla's group, right?

Mash
Master...
It looks like we've just wasted our time.

  1. That sucks.
  2. What a shame.
  Select: That sucks.
Kiyohime
Elisabeth aside, treating me like that is a little bit rude, don't you think?

  Select: What a shame.
Elisabeth
What's that about shame!
You met ME, and it's a shame!?

===Branch End===

  1. We're looking for a saint.
  2. We're only interested in saints.
  Select: We're looking for a saint.

  Select: We're only interested in saints.

===Branch End===

Kiyohime
Oh. It takes guts to make that comeback...
But in any case, a saint?

Kiyohime
I only know of one saint, if you mean someone whose teachings took root deep within this nation.

Mash
Really?

Kiyohime
Yes. I met him before coming across Elisabeth.

Kiyohime
I almost fought him, but he realized I was a "genuine"
Berserker and he sheathed his sword.

Kiyohime
His True Name is Georgios.
I believe he is quite a famous saint around here.

Dr. Roman
Georgios! The saint referred to as St. George.
...Yes, he would be perfect.

Dr. Roman
Do you know where he went?

Kiyohime
That's the real shame.
He went the opposite direction as me, to the west.

Mash
The west... That's where Jeanne and the others went.
Commencing communication!

Jeanne
...Yes, we're fine.
We detected a Servant over here as well.

Jeanne
I'm about to make contact right now.

Georgios
Please stop right there.
Who are you?

Marie Antoinette
I am a Servant. My class is Rider,
but my True Name is Marie Antoinette.

Georgios
...I see, you are not under Madness Enhancement.

Marie Antoinette
Yes. I'm on the side opposing them, and this is–

Georgios
I see... She is the holy maiden.
Best we keep her name undisclosed.

Georgios
This city has been razed by the Witch and her dragon.
I was able to make them retreat, but that won't happen again.

Jeanne
...Then, will you come join us?

Jeanne
Our "Dragon Slayer" is cursed, and we need to remove it immediately.

Jeanne
However, multiple curses are entwined together, so both you and I must be present...

Georgios
I understand the situation.

Georgios
...The residents have already started to evacuations.
Let us depart once that has completed.

Jeanne
Thank you very much!

--BATTLE--

Georgios
A wyvern attack?
There's been a lot of violence lately.

Jeanne
No, that wasn't it.
This sensation... It's the "Dragon Witch!"

Georgios
What did you say?

Jeanne
Let's retreat, Georgios!
We don't stand a chance against her right now!

Georgios
...But we can't do that yet.

Jeanne
Oh...

Georgios
The civilians aren't evacuated.
The mayor has entrusted me with their protection.

Georgios
I must fulfill that wish–
Or else, I won't be able to stay a saint.

Jeanne
But...

Georgios
... I know.
If I stay, I will die.

Georgios
But even so–I can't abandon them.

Marie Antoinette
Lord Georgios, you are a man who is thick in head and body.

Georgios
What was that?

Marie Antoinette
But, the part of you that is terribly cute has touched my heart.

Marie Antoinette
And so—
Please allow me to take over that duty.

Jeanne
What?

Marie Antoinette
I am the Queen of France.

Marie Antoinette
Even though that is in the "future" from here, for me neither "past" nor "present" make much difference.

Marie Antoinette
Protecting the citizens is an important duty for me too, and you are now given a duty that can change everything.

Marie Antoinette
St. Georgios, go with Jeanne d'Arc and please lift the curse from the "Dragon Slayer."

Marie Antoinette
In the name of Marie Antoinette, I will make sure to protect this city.

Jeanne
P-Please wait up!
Wait, hey wait! Marie!

Jeanne
Marie, let us stay and fight with you! You can't do it alone, but I am sure the two of us can—

Marie Antoinette
Non. That makes me very happy, but you cannot, Jeanne.

Marie Antoinette
I am sure I was summoned for precisely this moment.

Marie Antoinette
Not to harbor hatred or defeat enemies, but to protect the people.

Marie Antoinette
So that at this time, I will protect those dear to me.
To save my dear country, I will do what is right.

Marie Antoinette
Oh, but please apologize to Amadeus for me.
I never got to hear him play after all.

Marie Antoinette
He was 6, and I was 7. Since then, we've passed each other, but never met.

Jeanne
Marie!

Marie Antoinette
Lord Georgios, do you agree to this arrangement?

Georgios
...If you are fine with it, I will humbly yield this role to you.

Jeanne
...Marie...

Marie Antoinette
Now go, Jeanne. As short as our time was, it was the greatest honor to fight under your flag.

Jeanne
Yes.
...I will be waiting.

Marie Antoinette
Don't worry, I'll catch up soon.

Marie Antoinette
Sanson, you're here.

Sanson
Of course I am. Execution needs qualifications.
For both the executioner, and the executed.

Sanson
No other person has the right to execute you.
You should have realized that Marie.

Marie Antoinette
...Let's see ...Hold on a second, Sanson.
I know that you are a wonderful executioner.

Marie Antoinette
I mean, you're cruel, merciliess, and inhuman, but you never once mocked criminals.

Marie Antoinette
You guarded the guillotine with great respect, so I do indeed trust you.

Marie Antoinette
But, does that mean you alone hold the right to kill me?
Isn't that a bit absurd?

Sanson
It's not absurd. I was born into a family of executioners, and I was only taught how to execute.

Sanson
No compromise. It's not only about dedication,
I am particular about the method—the technique.

Sanson
It's natural for a good executioner to not inflict pain on the criminal. I see beyond that.

Sanson
I see the—ecstasy.
The moment it feels so good that "it will kill you."

Sanson
That is the type of beheading I dedicate myself to.
The best slice of my life was my "kiss" for you.

Marie Antoinette
...

Sanson
So, this is destiny. I couldn't help but want to see you so I could ask...

Sanson
Please, tell me, Marie.

Sanson
How was my beheading?
Were you able to climax at the very end?

Marie Antoinette
...I can see that you seriously showed respect for me Sanson, from the bottom of your heart.

Marie Antoinette
But, I'm sorry. That's just impossible.
It's something that I cannot possibly say...

Marie Antoinette
I already know enough men with perverse hobbies.
Terribly sorry, but I can't accept a second kiss from you.

Sanson
Yes, I know. But I'm sure you will be delighted,
I've gotten even better than back then.

Sanson
That is why I was summoned as a Servant.
I shall give you the final ecstasy once again!

Mash
If we hurry, we might still make it in time.

Siegfried
Right, if we lose them for the sake of my revival, that would be a great loss.

Dr. Roman
I have a reading... Unfortunately, an enemy.
Please hurry and defeat it!

  1. Full power.
  2. Understood.
  Select: Full power.

  Select: Understood.

===Branch End===

Mash
Yes Master!
Now, please stand back!

--BATTLE--

Sanson
That's, impossible!
How could I be defeated?

Sanson
I've killed so many since that day, and become so much stronger... So why?

Marie Antoinette
How sad, Charles-Henri Sanson.
I should've told you when we reunited.

Marie Antoinette
Our relationship ended that day.

Marie Antoinette
Because your blade was truly—rusty.

Marie Antoinette
You've killed so many people that it's lost its way.
You've increased your proficiency as a killer.

Marie Antoinette
Executioners and killers are not the same, Sanson.
The more skilled you become at killing others—

Marie Antoinette
The rustier your blade as an executioner, savior of criminals, becomes.

Marie Antoinette
By the time you followed the Dragon Witch, you were no longer the Sanson I knew.

Sanson
No... Lies! It cannot be! I kept my faith that you would come! That's why I kept honing my skills!

Sanson
To see you, and behead you with more skill—
Give you a much better ecstatic moment!

Sanson
I thought that by doing so, you would surely forgive me!

Marie Antoinette
...Geez. You really are a pitiful, adorable person.
I don't hold a grudge against you.

Marie Antoinette
From the beginning, you never had the need to be forgiven by me.

Sanson
Ah... aah, ah—

Jeanne Alter
...That makes three. It's ironic how the ones who show potential are the first to fall.

Marie Antoinette
Yes. Perhaps the two vampires you loathe may be the last ones standing.

Marie Antoinette
Good day, "Dragon Witch."
It seems you got here a little too late.

Jeanne Alter
"Myself" has already escaped.
–How pitiful.

Marie Antoinette
No, that's not true.
She left here embracing hope.

Jeanne Alter
Just by gaining one Servant?
How ridiculous.

Jeanne Alter
Speaking of ridiculous, it's amazing that you are still here.

Jeanne Alter
Are you intoxicated with the idea of saving these citizens?

Jeanne Alter
You, the person killed by her citizens.
A woman put to the guillotine, beheaded in ridicule!

Marie Antoinette
So disappointing.
Witches don't understand such simple logic?

Marie Antoinette
It's true that I was executed.
There was ridicule, and there was disdain.

Marie Antoinette
However–
that gives me no reason to murder them in return.

Marie Antoinette
I became a queen because the people asked me to.
A queen cannot be without her people.

Marie Antoinette
Thus, it was inevitable. If they don't want you,
then you exit even if you don't want to.

Marie Antoinette
That is the destiny of those serving their country.
I believe my execution led to my people's next smile.

Marie Antoinette
No matter when, viva la France!
Stars glimmer, and that will do. That's all we need.

Marie Antoinette
Now I am certain.
Say–"Dragon Witch."

Marie Antoinette
"Who are you exactly?"

Jeanne Alter
...Shut up!

Marie Antoinette
–Deploy Noble Phantasm.
"Crystal Palace!!"

Marie Antoinette
...Goodbye Jeanne, it was lovely meeting you.

Marie Antoinette
If I can help the Saint who saved France...
No, if I can help a friend.

Marie Antoinette
Then I will gladly shed the last of my radiance and fall.

Marie Antoinette
Like a star, like a flower.
Like a fleeting dream.

Marie Antoinette
That is what a Servant is,
and how Marie Antoinette lives–!

Jeanne
Mash!

Mash
Oh, thank goodness!
And who is–

Georgios
My name is Georgios.

Amadeus
...Where's Maria?

Jeanne
Marie is...

Amadeus
I see. That's what she said when she stayed behind?
Oh well, it can't be helped.

Amadeus
You don't have to feel bad. Even if we were there,
she would've done the same thing.

Amadeus
Maria is an eternal philanthropist.
That's how she lives and dies.

Amadeus
But never mind that, why don't you reverse Siegfried's curse?

Jeanne
R-Right!

Mash
Amadeus...

Amadeus
It's all right, I knew this was going to happen.
Remember how Maria was talking about the piano?

Amadeus
See, that was her way of saying goodbye.
It never happened when we were alive.

Amadeus
If she'd said to me "Let me hear your piano,"
I couldn't have stopped her.

Amadeus
But, the second farewell hits hard. Worse than the first. All the more as we'll never meet again.

Mash
Eh... Um, if you are Heroic Spirits, wouldn't there be a chance to see each other again?

Mash
Like now, you may be called to the same battlefield...

Amadeus
Mm, that won't happen, I think?
There are as many Heroic Spirits as the stars.

Amadeus
How I came across her this time was already a miracle.
Though, a whimsical Master might change things a bit.

Amadeus
Anyway, I'm a bit tired. I'm going to excuse myself,
call for me when you're ready to leave.

That's right, Mash, you don't understand a man's heart quite yet.

Mash
You're right.
Now that aside...

Mash
...Why are YOU here?

Elisabeth
It's fine, isn't it?

Kiyohime
You don't approve of us being here?
We're willing to assist you in combat.

This is a pinky promise, if you lie, I'll make you swallow a thousand needles...

Kiyohime
This completes the contract! Just so you know... I really will make you swallow a thousand needles if you lie.

Kiyohime
Is that clear?
Please take care of me from now on.

Mash
Master, Jeanne's group seems to have succeeded in lifting Siegfried's curse!

Jeanne
Okay, you will be fine from now on.
This would probably have been impossible by myself.

Jeanne
...It's all thanks to Marie.
We were able to survive because of her.

Jeanne
What she risked her life protecting is something I want to protect too.

Jeanne
This era, this world, this country–To do so,
let's defeat the "Dragon Witch" and, the dragon.

Siegfried
–All right, I can move now. I apologize for all your efforts, Fujimaru.

Siegfried
No, Master... The more correct way to put it is,
I appreciate all your efforts from the bottom of my heart.

Siegfried
I shall entrust my sword to you.
This body will be my Master's sword and shield.

Siegfried
My True Name is Siegfried. I have no other skill than slaying dragons, but I'd be honored to be put to use.

Mash
That sound... It's the wyverns!

Siegfried
...It looks like it's my turn already.
Please command me.

  1. I will leave them to you.
  2. Let's go get them.
  Select: I will leave them to you.

  Select: Let's go get them.

===Branch End===

Siegfried
Yeah.
–My name is Siegfried, here I go!

--BATTLE--

Dr. Roman
All right, now we have ourselves a team.

Mash
That's right Master.

  1. Let's attack Orleans.
  2. Let's take down the dragon.
  Select: Let's attack Orleans.

  Select: Let's take down the dragon.

===Branch End===

Mash
Yes! Understood Master!

Elisabeth
...Hmph.
I wouldn't mind helping you out with that, little Puppy.

Kiyohime
My, my, Elisabeth, calling my Love a Puppy is an insult.

Elisabeth
...Did you just make a ridiculous word change?
Well, I don't care.

Elisabeth
I'm not a cheap dragon.
I will meet an extra-special Master someday!

Kiyohime
Oh, so the horn on your head isn't the only thing twisted.
Seeking an impossible dream... Is your head okay?

Elisabeth
It's not an impossible dream!
It's conviction! I'm convinced of it!

Elisabeth
I'll someday meet a Master that is to my liking and will love me!

Kiyohime
Yes, yes, in your head it's another cloudless day.

Georgios
...Our team sure is a lively one.
Of course, I will be in your service.

Amadeus
Oh, heading out already? Then I'll tag along.
I've come this far, might as well see the end.

Jeanne
Fujimaru.
No, Master.

Jeanne
Right now, I am merely a powerless Servant.

Jeanne
But I wish to protect this world.
Please, fight with me.

  1. Of course.
  2. That is our duty.
  Select: Of course.

  Select: That is our duty.

===Branch End===

Jeanne
Thank you so much!

--ARROW--

Jeanne
Let's make camp here tonight to prepare for tomorrow's showdown...

Jeanne
First, we'll have to secure the area.
Everyone prepare for battle, we're surrounded.

Jeanne
Don't draw too much attention, and refrain from any flash attacks so we can end this soon... Wait.

Jeanne
Fujimaru,
I don't see Mash or Amadeus anywhere...

Amadeus
Well crap, I just came to get a bit of water.
How unlucky of me to be assaulted by enemies.

Mash
Amadeus, over here! I'll go up to the front line, so please hide behind me!

Amadeus
I'd take up your offer... but I can't.
This time the situation is different.

Amadeus
I can't run away if the front line is just you, Mash.
Let me fight with you.

Mash
Amadeus? Will you be all right?
You'll get hurt, you know!

Amadeus
Oh, it's a rehearsal to prepare for tomorrow's battle.
A few wounds? No worries.

--BATTLE--

Amadeus
Whew! We made it through in one piece, but we accidentally left the forest during the battle.

Amadeus
Fujimaru and Jeanne must be worried.
Let's rest awhile, then return to camp.

Mash
...Um. It seems a bit crazy to ask questions at a time like this, but do you mind?

Amadeus
Of course not.
Be it important or trivial, ask away.

Amadeus
Tomorrow is the final battle.
You should wrap up any unfinished business.

Mash
...Right.
I hate to bring this back up...

Mash
But it's about when we heard that Marie had died.
This is what you said, Amadeus.

Mash
"Humans choose what they love."
I don't understand what that meant.

Mash
Rather, I understand the meaning of the words,
it's the "choose" part that I don't understand.

Mash
I mean, things we should view favorably are morally just,
and things we should reject are socially bad.

Mash
That's what I was taught.
I feel deep down that it's right.

Amadeus
Hmm.
What do you consider right then?

Mash
Well... Something that saves many lives, and sees value in many lives, I suppose.

Amadeus
That's rather ill-defined. Let's assume for a moment that Fujimaru were not such a person. What then?

Mash
But that's...

Amadeus
Forgive me, that was a mean assumption.
However, keep that hesitation and discomfort in mind.

Amadeus
Mash, I suspect that you are a person who has only recently gained her freedom.

Amadeus
As such, you freeze in the face of hard choices and have doubts about the person you are becoming.

Mash
...Yes, I think you might be right.
I, uh...didn't know much about the outside world.

Mash
...No. Maybe I never had the right to care for anything in the first place.

Mash
I mean, I—

Amadeus
Oh, dear. You truly are pure, aren't you?
You're like a music sheet without a single note on it.

Amadeus
But heed my words, Mash. Even if you are a doll created for the sole purpose of fighting...

Amadeus
...You have the obligation to care for something.
You may not have freedom, but you have obligations.

Mash
Obligations?
Not rights or privileges?

Amadeus
No, obligations.
Or duties, if you like.

Amadeus
Humans have that responsibility, for they possess the intelligence to think.

Amadeus
What to care for, what to dislike, what is considered precious, what is considered evil.

Amadeus
Those are the things you must choose for your self.
Not by the words of others, nor by conforming to your environment.

Amadeus
Every human is unique.
So too is each one's values.

Amadeus
We learn and see as much as we can.
By doing so, your life will be enriched.

Amadeus
Listen, the world is not what you make of it.
You are what the world makes of you.

Amadeus
Then when you have become you, become more than this world.

Amadeus
You must leave proof that you existed, whatever it is.
I have. All the music I left behind is proof.

Amadeus
Even though—
that itself is insignificant.

Mash
???

Amadeus
After all, I am a man who couldn't even bear witness to the death of his one and only first love.

Amadeus
My legacy may have been loved by many, but my actual life was nothing special.

Amadeus
Still, I am content with that. Human beings are filthy and unpleasant. My conclusion stands.

Amadeus
There are sinners who shine brilliantly and saints that make one retch. So there is no need for you to fear your own future.

Amadeus
You are created by the world, and you expand and improve the world.

Amadeus
That is what "being a human" is all about.

Amadeus
Begin by absorbing all you can from the world and then return those favors to the world as you see fit later.

Amadeus
Worrying over what results that will have is a matter for another day.

Mash
Amadeus...

Amadeus
However, most things in this world have a fair value, and a result fit for such value.

Amadeus
As was the case with my music and my life.

Amadeus
As long as humans are human, evil will not prevail.
After all, humanity will be unable to flourish otherwise.

Amadeus
It is said that "evil" is the hindrance to the prosperity of life.The species cannot survive with it there.

Amadeus
If humanity cannot purge itself of that "evil," that is the day of humanity's extinction. It's that simple.

Amadeus
...I see that you are now breathing more calmly.
Our break is over Mash, let's return to the others.

Amadeus
Most likely this is the last time we shall chat.
For some reason, it turned into a bit of a lecture.

Amadeus
Still, I'm happy that we were alone for this final talk.
From start to finish, you're a charming young lady.

Amadeus
In this battle, I would have proposed to you had Maria not been there.

Mash
...I see. Thank you great composer Amadeus,
I won't forget what you said.

Amadeus
Indeed. You pass, Mademoiselle.

Amadeus
I want you to remember one last thing.
There's nothing more beautiful than a parting smile.

--ARROW--

Mash
The supplies have arrived, but apparently there's been a shift in topological space.

Mash
Our rations are being devoured by monsters.
Senpai, are you okay with being hungry?

Mash
...I suppose not.
Let's go!

Elisabeth
Hey, I had my eye on that!
Don't eat it!

Kiyohime
You are so annoying!

--BATTLE--

Elisabeth
Hey, that looks good.

Kiyohime
Then allow me to feed you, say "ahhh."

Mash
...What's gotten into you?

Jeanne
...

Amadeus
Hello, is this seat taken?

Jeanne
Oh, no!
Be my guest.

Amadeus
I'm sorry to be a bother while you're relaxing, but those dragons over there are too noisy.

Jeanne
...
...Amadeus. Marie was very kind to me.

Amadeus
But of course. She was kind to everyone, but her affection for you was unique.

Jeanne
Why do you suppose that was?
Because I'm a fellow Frenchwoman?

Amadeus
I'm not sure. I don't think it had anything to do with you being French.

Amadeus
Whether one is from England, Spain, or the Far East, that is of no importance to Maria.

Amadeus
The reason she was fond of you, that she held you in high esteem, was because you were a young woman who took a stand all on her own.

Amadeus
In a sense, Maria is the same. She became a queen at 14 and was forced into battle all alone in Versailles.

Amadeus
...Of course, I'm sure that her battles paled in comparison to yours.

Amadeus
Battlefields with cannonballs and conspiracies are in truth, fundamentally different.

Amadeus
Nevertheless, it was indeed a life or death struggle for her. That is why she empathized with you.

Jeanne
Because she was living through a lonely battle of her own?

Amadeus
And one other reason.
This is the important one.

Amadeus
For Maria, standing up for a loved one is a perfectly reasonable thing to do.

Amadeus
Be it family, another person, a Servant–
or even the nation itself.

Amadeus
True, she was a sheltered girl who knew no hardship, so her way of standing up for someone was rather off-key.

Jeanne
...Oh, is that so?
In that case, I wanted to stand up for her as a friend.

Jeanne
Given the situation, nothing could've been done,
but I wish–I could've been by her side.

Jeanne
...I like to believe so.

Amadeus
A friend, eh? Yes, you thinking of her that way would be the ultimate reward for her.

Amadeus
Maria and I have one thing in common.
We were not blessed with friends.

Amadeus
But, her wish was fulfilled in this second life. I get the feeling she was able to move on with a light heart.

Jeanne
Um... Actually, I think of you as a comrade.
Fujimaru feels the same too.

Amadeus
No, no, that won't do. After all, I don't think that of you.
Maria said it, remember? I'm fundamentally trash.

Amadeus
I only love music. That is how I lived my life, and I am proud of that fact.

Amadeus
That is why I cannot make friends.
Instead, I left behind many pieces of music.

Amadeus
If I had any desire for human happiness, I would vanish in a cloud of self-hatred.

Amadeus
Still, thank you Jeanne d'Arc.
I'm sure that Maria had no regrets.

Jeanne
I shall avenge her.
...No, vengeance isn't important, is it?

Jeanne
I will make her wish come true.
I will save this France.

Jeanne Alter
Gilles, are you here?

Gilles
Yes, right here!

Jeanne Alter
Marie Antoinette has perished, but what about Sanson?

Gilles
I am treating him right now.
His mind perished with her.

Gilles
All we can do is to keep his Spiritron Shell intact, and use him as a foot soldier.

Jeanne Alter
...I see.
Georgios escaped from that town.

Jeanne Alter
Had Marie not sacrificed herself to buy time, our plan would have worked–

Gilles
Ah, I see. The enemy ranks lost one, but also gained one.

Jeanne Alter
We're not at a disadvantage here, but it is a nuisance.
Continue searching for them–

Berserk Saber
It doesn't look like that will be necessary.

Jeanne Alter
Saber? I thought I ordered you to search the southeastern region.

Berserk Saber
There's no longer any need, Master.
They're heading straight for Orleans.

Berserk Saber
Looks like it's a final showdown they want.
Don't you want the same thing?

Jeanne Alter
...So, they've stopped running around have they?
Which means they think they have a shot at winning.

Berserk Saber
I suppose they do.
They have many Servants as well.

Berserk Saber
We might have dragons on our side, but this should still be a glorious fight.

Jeanne Alter
You're enjoying yourself?

Berserk Saber
Of course. As you know, I'm not right in the head.
I'll be just as happy with wiping them out as being wiped out by them.

Berserk Saber
Go on, order me–Master.

Jeanne Alter
Prepare for the final battle.
Gilles, summon them, not just the Servants.

Gilles
Understood.
I shall gather all the dragons who were slain in France.

Jeanne Alter
...If we win, the world will be destroyed.
Even if we lose, it will make no difference.

Jeanne Alter
The world is long gone. Even if they correct this place, an endless journey lies ahead.

Jeanne Alter
And yet... And yet, they have faith in the world–
Those people, and "me."

Jeanne Alter
In that case, I shall smite them.
I won't let them reconnect this world.

Jeanne Alter
That is my wish, and Gilles' wish.
...Yes, that should be my wish—

--ARROW--

--BATTLE--

Siegfried
I seem to be the only one here with experience leading an army.

Siegfried
Of course, it's not as if I have a glorious military record where I led an army to invade a worthwhile country.

Siegfried
In any event, our numbers are few while the enemy's are large.

Siegfried
...But, most of the enemy's forces are weaker than us.
In situations like this, there are two options.

Siegfried
A frontal assault, or an ambush from the rear.
However, our location was given away long ago.

Siegfried
Stealth is out of the question. The enemy knows where we are... There's only one option.

Both
A frontal assault.

Siegfried
...Exactly.

Siegfried
Master and I will see to Fafnir.

Siegfried
I want the others to protect us from Servants and wyverns.

Siegfried
Whether we slay Fafnir or not, the outcome of this war hinges on that question.

Mash
...Understood.
I'm inexperienced, but I'll fight with everything I have.

Elisabeth
Oh Puppy, there is someone I must fight.

Elisabeth
Would it be all right if I focus on her.

  1. Go ahead.
  2. Who do you want to fight?
  Select: Go ahead.
Elisabeth
Oh? Thanks.

  Select: Who do you want to fight?
Elisabeth
Oh, a Servant I share a certain fate with.

===Branch End===

Elisabeth
If I can do that, I'll be quite satisfied.
...I'll lend you a hand if I can spare the time.

Jeanne
I, without a doubt, will be facing the "Dragon Witch" in battle.

Georgios
Can you defeat her?

Jeanne
...Yes, I shall be victorious.

Jeanne
Even if she turns out to be the real Jeanne d'Arc, I will still prevail in battle.

Amadeus
Hm, I don't have an issue with anybody.
I guess I will just try to get wyverns' attention.

Kiyohime
In that case... I shall be at our Master's side and breathe fire as needed.

Kiyohime
As they say, like moths to the flame, and scoundrels of dubious origin who stand in the way of romance.

Dr. Roman
Leave scouting the area to me.

Dr. Roman
This is do-or-die time.
I've got lots of energy drinks and buckets ready!

Mash
Doctor, those have the opposite effect. They cause stomachaches, so maybe you shouldn't drink them...

Dr. Roman
I am sure it will freshen me up if I dunk my face in it.
Anyway, leave everything to me!

Siegfried
So, if no one has any questions...
Master–please issue your orders.

  1. Let's fight!
  2. Let's win!
  Select: Let's fight!

  Select: Let's win!

===Branch End===

Jeanne
Right!
Now, on to Orleans—!

Section 12: March to the Orleans

Show/Hide Story Chapter

Dr. Roman
...As predicted it's swarming with wyverns.
Still, we can't afford any delays.

Dr. Roman
Everyone, take care of them as fast as you can.

Mash
Understood!
Master, the enemies are coming, give me your orders!

--BATTLE--

Amadeus
They're still coming!

--BATTLE--

Dr. Roman
Servant detected!
They're coming straight for you—It's our enemies!

Berserk Archer
...I'll kill you... I'll kill you all!
Every last one of you, shatter before my bow!

Jeanne
Archer... She's been forced under Madness Enhancement as well!

Georgios
She must be the type of Servant who'd never serve the Dragon Witch.

Mash
It can't be helped!
I'm taking her out!

--BATTLE--

Berserk Archer
...This is fine. This is fine.
Really, what a troublesome and unrewarding job.

Berserk Archer
Go, and take down that dragon.
Yes, next time for sure, I–

Dr. Roman
Berserk Archer's elimination is confirmed.
I am getting a reading of a ultra-size lifeform!

Dr. Roman
Fafnir's left Orleans. In other words...
The showdown's about to begin!

Section 13: Jeanne and Jeanne

Show/Hide Story Chapter

Jeanne Alter
Hello, trash I left behind.

Jeanne
...No, I am a vestige.
Most importantly, I'm not you Dragon Witch.

Jeanne Alter
But you are me.
What are you talking about?

Jeanne
...No matter what I say, I can no longer reach you.

Jeanne
After this battle is over, I'm going to give you an earful!

Jeanne Alter
Silence! Behold these dragons!
Behold this horde of dragons!

Jeanne Alter
We have turned this nation into a nest of dragons!

Jeanne Alter
They will devour everything, and nothing will ever live in France again!

Jeanne Alter
Then this world will be complete.
Then this world will be destroyed.

Jeanne Alter
The dragons will fight one another for eternity.
Endless war. Endless devouring.

Jeanne Alter
That will be the true Hundred Years' War–
A Hundred Years War of Evil Dragons!

Jeanne Alter
What!

Jeanne
...Gilles!

Gilles
Fire! We fight for the survival of France!
Fire everything we have! Fire! Fire!

Gilles
Do not be afraid! Do not sorrow! Do not falter!
If you have human blood, now is the time to die!

Gilles
I will say it again! There is nothing to fear!
For we–

Gilles
"For we have the Saint on our side!"

Jeanne
...Gilles!

Jeanne Alter
Hmph, such stubborn belief.
It makes me want to vomit. Fafnir!

Jeanne Alter
Incinerate that Saint, that army, this nation! Burn everything to the ground!

Siegfried
–Hah. I never thought I'd see you a third time.

Siegfried
Perhaps, in another time or another world, we could've been connected in another way–

Jeanne Alter
Siegfried!

Siegfried
Fafnir! I am here wicked dragon!
I, Siegfried, am right here!

Siegfried
Once again, you shall taste the twilight.
I swear by my righteousness, and by my beliefs–!

Jeanne Alter
Come forth my Servants!

Berserk Saber
Hey you guys, good to see you doing well!

Berserk Saber
I am Chevalier d'Eon. This time I lend my blade to evil–but it remains as pure as ever.

Berserk Saber
Now, fight me with all you have!
End this nightmare!

Berserk Lancer
...So you came, huh?
There's no shame becoming fallen.

Berserk Lancer
Defeat is the greatest shame of all. I've become a mere puppet in the search for the Grail–

Berserk Lancer
I am praised as the immortal vampire.

Berserk Lancer
Fiction or not, it is all I have left.

Mash
Master, they're coming!
The French army is holding off the wyverns!

Mash
This is it!

  1. I'm counting on you, Mash!
  2. Let's do it, Mash!
  Select: I'm counting on you, Mash!

  Select: Let's do it, Mash!

===Branch End===

Mash
Right!
We'll achieve victory together!

--BATTLE--

Berserk Saber
...We've lost.
Now my curse will be broken.

Berserk Saber
Thank you all.
Apologies to my beloved queen.

Berserk Saber
I'm so sorry, my queen.
Please forgive my mistake–

Berserk Lancer
–Is it over now?
My dreams, my ambitions will once again be erased?

Berserk Lancer
Hmph, who knew I'd deal with a "Dragon Slayer" again? How ironic.

Berserk Lancer
I see. So they were right, I am Dracul, the devil.

Berserk Lancer
It must be my destiny to fall in the presence of a Servant who slew devils and dragons.

Berserk Lancer
Very well, I will allow it.
You, the Master over there.

Berserk Lancer
You are a {(M) man /(F) woman} who does not lose sight of themselves amidst the battle. Next time, summon me.

Berserk Lancer
Then I will show you the true power of my lance.

Berserk Lancer
The lance that defended a nation—
the weapons that defended my people...
In your hands, they will shine—

--ARROW--

Mash
(pant, pant, pant)...

Sanson
Ahhh...
Augh...augh!

Amadeus
I can't believe this, I was here fighting random enemies and the one I despise the most showed up.

Amadeus
Hey executioner, from the looks of it I guess Maria turned you down?

Sanson
Ama...deus?
Aaaaamaaaaaadeeeeeeuuuuuus!

Amadeus
Mmm, why are you so fired up?
Don't tell me Maria said something she shouldn't have.

Amadeus
For example, maybe— Although we are both scum,
she said I am 100 times better. Something like that?

Sanson
Hah—Ah, ah—
Shu—t up. Shut up, Amadeus!

Sanson
I won't let you beat me!
You're the one man I'll never lose to!

Amadeus
...Whoa!
Wait, did that give him back his sanity?

Amadeus
Jeez... I guess I should've kept my mouth shut.
But—this makes things worth doing.

Amadeus
Charles-Henri Sanson, are you ready for me to take my frustration out on you?

Amadeus
I've actually got some energy for once.
Enough energy to play an extra song on the piano.

Sanson
Whatever, I'll chop you fingers off.
You know something, Amadeus?

Sanson
I always hated your Requiem!
The way it turned death into mere music!

Amadeus
Tsk, this is the problem with gloomy muscleheads!
Damn, his intensity's overwhelming!

Amadeus
Sorry, help me out Master!
This is my last gift for Maria, let me make it a good one!

--BATTLE--

Sanson
Ha—I see.
So I'm going down to you?

Sanson
Then... The evil one is me, no question about it.
Justice is on your side.

Sanson
Just like last time, the queen smiled–as she took in the witch's flames.

Sanson
Not with resignation, but with hope.
...May blessings be upon you.

Amadeus
You idiot, you actually cared whose side justice is on?

Amadeus
...How gloomy. This is why we need to get rid of jobs where you do nothing but kill people all day.

Amadeus
Bye Sanson, next time I see you I'll play my Requiem until you're sick of it.

Amadeus
I mean, you're actually a huge fan of the song aren't you?

--ARROW--

Elisabeth
Why, you! Why you, why you, why you!

Carmilla
This is...quite irritating. This "me."

Elisabeth
Right back at you!
How did you get to be a Servant?

Carmilla
Never thought you'd say that. From where I sit,
it's far more maddening to see that I've become a Servant as myself!

Carmilla
I'm a revered countess, feared by all.
The finished product.

Carmilla
I'm not like an unfinished product like you.
I devoured fear and became an Anti-Hero.

Carmilla
But what about you?

Carmilla
You devoured the existence that is me. You simply refused to age, and feared being sealed away.

Carmilla
Of course you did.
From your perspective, I'm just a sign of your sin.

Carmilla
The guilt you brought upon yourself, the unassailable record of your murders!

Elisabeth
...That's right.

Elisabeth
You are who I really am, my final destination.
The symbol of my sin, that no tears will ever change.

Elisabeth
Denying you means looking away from the crimes I've committed.

Elisabeth
But that doesn't mean I can't take responsibility!
It may be ugly self-deception, but I'll say it anyway!

Elisabeth
I... I don't want to be like you!

Carmilla
How foolish, we're spirits of the past.
The future's already been decided.

Elisabeth
I know that!
But I'm saying it anyway!

Elisabeth
Help me, Little Puppy!

Elisabeth
You may be a step down from the Master I dream of, but you're still first rate!

Elisabeth
Please let me settle things with her!
Let me sing with everything I have!

--BATTLE--

Carmilla
The future doesn't reject the past, but rather, the past rejects the future?

Carmilla
–Such drivel coming out of your mouth!
But that's why... You're so dazzling, it's annoying.

Carmilla
Let me return to the darkness. That last instant...
That light—that I saw between the bricks.

Carmilla
That's right... Whether I live or die,
I—am always alone—

Elisabeth
...Farewell, my future.
Farewell, the part of myself so sad I had to separate.

Elisabeth
This will not lessen my sins, nor the fear others feel towards me.

Elisabeth
I–will deny the future as many times as I must,
and sing as many times as I must.

--ARROW--

Siegfried
After multiple obstacles, we're finally here.

Siegfried
...Good work, Master.
And Mash Kyrielight.

Siegfried
We're almost at the evil dragon.
Confronting it like this—I must confess.

Siegfried
I don't know how I won the first time.

Mash
Hey!
Don't say stuff like that now!

Siegfried
There's just one thing inscribed in my memory.

Siegfried
My victory was not a certain one. It was a single, tiny sliver of a chance, surrounded by a million defeats.

Siegfried
Plan carefully, move boldly, keep a broad perspective,
and focus deeply upon a single point.

Siegfried
Be like the sea, the sky, the darkness, the light. Contradict thyself.

Siegfried
Unless you do that, there is no way you can defeat Fafnir.

Mash
I-I understand!
I'll do what I can!

Siegfried
Oh, Master.
...Are you ready?

  1. Let's go!
  2. Of course!
  Select: Let's go!

Siegfried
Heh. It's an honor to have such a bold Master.

Siegfried
Return to earth once more, wicked dragon!

Jeanne Alter
Impossible!

Mash
...We've defeated it!

Dr. Roman
Confirming Fafnir's complete silence!
Amazing, a new Dragon Slayer has been born!

Mash
Look! The wyverns are in a panic!

Siegfried
They must be confused because Fafnir, their commander, got taken out.

Jeanne Alter
...Ugh!

Gilles
Come back, Jeanne!

Jeanne Alter
Gilles!

Jeanne

Gilles
First, let's get back to this prison castle!
We need to regroup.

Show/Hide Story Chapter

Jeanne
I'm off to settle the score with the "Dragon Witch."

Mash
Master, we'll head out there too.

Mash
We should leave this place to the other Servants, and track the "Dragon Witch!"

Siegfried
You're right, let me handle this.
Take Kiyohime and Elisabeth with you.

Kiyohime
Very well.
I look forward to working with you, Master.

Elisabeth
That's fine, but...
Why us?

(Her Noble Phantasm hurts my ears...)
(And Kiyohime breathes fire on anyone, friend or foe...)

Georgios
(Both of their Noble Phantasms...)

Amadeus
(Elisabeth's is the worst Noble Phantasm in the world, I'm sure of it.)

Elisabeth
???

Kiyohime
Huh?

Mash
Ahem. L-Let's go, you two!

Gilles
Fafnir has fallen.
Without it, the other wyverns...

Jeanne Alter
I'm aware.
Let us summon a new Servant.

Gilles
Indeed!

Jeanne Alter
Gilles, defend me while I focus on the summoning.
I'm counting on you.

Gilles
Understood. I'll use my Noble Phantasm, Prelati's Spellbook, to buy us time.

Gilles
Use that time to summon us a powerful Servant.

Gilles
Perhaps King Arthur?

Jeanne Alter
I can't imagine an English knight answering my summons... But I'll see what I can do.

Jeanne Alter
Good luck.

Gilles
Indeed Jeanne, I pray that the light of your glory is not tainted.

Jeanne
Let us hurry! If we're too slow, she'll summon another Servant!

Elisabeth
I-I know that!
But you know, this castle's kind of nice...

Elisabeth
It's kind of my style, you know?

  1. Yeah, it's terrible!
  2. Yeah, it's awful!
  Select: Yeah, it's terrible!

  Select: Yeah, it's awful!

===Branch End===

Kiyohime
Indeed, all this blood.
They don't organize, they don't clean...how filthy.

Kiyohime
Only a bloodthirsty barbarian would prefer a place like this.

Elisabeth
...Y-You're right!
This is bad, isn't it!

Mash
Master, enemies!
Let's finish them quickly!

--BATTLE--

Dr. Roman
Whoops, there's a Servant up ahead!
Be careful!

Gilles
–Well, well, long time no see.

Jeanne
Gilles!

Gilles
Who knew you'd defeat Fafnir, and show yourself here in Orleans...

Gilles
To be honest, I am impressed.

Gilles
However! However!
Oh, my saint! And your comrades!

Gilles
Why do you stand in my way?

Gilles
You come into my world destroying everything, and now you're even trying to kill Jeanne d'Arc!

Jeanne
–I had a question about that.

Jeanne
Gilles de Rais, is she really "me?"

Gilles
...What? What-what-what unforgivable blasphemy! Even the Saint would despair and rage to hear such a thing!

Gilles
That is, without a doubt, the true Jeanne d'Arc.
It is the darkness hidden within her!

Jeanne
–I see.
Then as the light, I must face her.

Gilles
Jeanne, I won't let anyone stop me–even you!

--BATTLE--

Mash
We can handle this!

Jeanne
But their numbers are great...
Why you!

Elisabeth
Never mind that, what's with this giant starfish?
Oh gross, this weird liquid is dripping onto my clothes! Dripping!

Kiyohime
So filthy.
Master, please protect me.

Mash
D-Do your job as a Servant, okay?

Elisabeth
Huh? This roar...

Mash
Enemy sighted!
This time it's a wyvern?

Kiyohime
Jeez.
How'd it fit inside this tiny castle?

--BATTLE--

Gilles
Curse you, curse you, curse you!
In that case, take me on!

Gilles
My comrade Prelati...
Grant me your power!

Jeanne
Gilles...
I shall release your soul!

Mash
Let's go!
Master, your orders!

--BATTLE--

Gilles
...Ugh!

Mash
Ugh! As powerful as expected...
I couldn't finish him off!

Kiyohime
We'll hold off this Servant!
Master, you go on ahead!

Elisabeth
Right, go settle the score with the last boss!

Mash
Thank you for your support!
Jeanne!

Jeanne
...

  1. Jeanne!
  2. What's wrong?
  Select: Jeanne!

  Select: What's wrong?

===Branch End===

Jeanne
...I-I'm sorry.
It's nothing.

Jeanne
I'm going.
Thank you both!

Section 15: The Dragon Witch

Show/Hide Story Chapter

Jeanne
...

Mash
Jeanne, what was bothering you just now?

Jeanne
Oh no, there was something on my mind...
It's nothing important.

Jeanne
Anyway, it's time to confront the "Dragon Witch."
There shouldn't be anything in our way.

Jeanne
Let's go!

Jeanne Alter
...That was faster than I thought.
I don't have time to modify the spell–

Jeanne
–"Dragon Witch."

Jeanne Alter
So you finally made it here, huh?
Gilles is–alive, but delayed.

Jeanne Alter
I suppose that's fine. Everything is ready.

Jeanne
Tell her what she needs to hear.
...That was Marie's instruction to me.

Jeanne
I have another thing to ask of you as well.

Jeanne Alter
It's too late for talking–

Jeanne
It's a very simple question.
Do you remember your family?

Jeanne Alter
...Huh?

Mash
Jeanne?

Jeanne
I asked you a simple question.

Jeanne
No matter how vivid my memories of battle are,
I remember far more of my life as a simple country girl.

Jeanne
Even my dark side should remember those peaceful days.

Jeanne
No, it's precisely because she remembers them–
that the hatred and betrayal brought her such pain.

Jeanne Alter
I... I...

Jeanne
–You don't remember, do you?

Jeanne Alter
What... What does it matter?

Jeanne Alter
Whether I remember or not, I'm still Jeanne d'Arc!

Jeanne
That's right. It doesn't matter whether you remember.

Jeanne
But this settles it. I shall defeat the "Dragon Witch" with sadness, not anger.

Jeanne Alter
–My Servants!

Mash
These are... The Servants we saw in Fuyuki!
And so many of them!

Jeanne Alter
I didn't have time to summon a normal Servant, but I can summon as many of these as I like.

Jeanne Alter
Crush them!

Mash
Master, they're coming!

  1. Let's do this, Mash!
 
  Select: Let's do this, Mash!

===Branch End===

Mash
Right!

--BATTLE--

Jeanne Alter
Ugh... So they broke through that swarm?

Jeanne
We're going to settle this right now.
"Dragon Witch"–

Jeanne Alter
Shut up! Let's fight!
Will despair win, or will hope win–

Jeanne Alter
Will murderous intent win, or will pity win?
Let's see if you can surpass me–Jeanne d'Arc!

--BATTLE--

Jeanne Alter
What?

Jeanne Alter
Im-Impossible. Ridiculous.
This can't be happening. It's a lie.

Jeanne Alter
Because I–have the Holy Grail–!
The owner of the Holy Grail knows no defeat.

Jeanne Alter
That's how it should be!

Gilles
Oh, Jeanne! Jeanne!
What a pitiful sight you are!

Jeanne Alter
Gilles...

Gilles
But now that I, Gilles de Rais, am here you can rest.

Gilles
Now then, sleep in peace.

Jeanne Alter
But–I still haven't...
I haven't destroyed France...

Gilles
I will take care of that.
Leave everything to me.

Gilles
Don't worry. You will never die.
You're just a little...a little tired.

Gilles
Close your eyes, and rest.
When you awake, I'll have finished everything.

Jeanne Alter
Yes, yes you're right.
Gilles... If you'll fight for me, I can rest, and...

--ARROW--

Gilles
...

Jeanne
–So that's how it ended up, after all.

Gilles
You have a powerful intuition.

Elisabeth
Oh, there she is!

Kiyohime
To think that you'd make a sudden run for it...

Mash
Um, Jeanne?
What exactly–

Jeanne
It wasn't the "Dragon Witch" who possessed the Holy Grail.

Jeanne
No, actually that Servant, never existed in the Throne of Heroes.

Jeanne
As long as she wasn't an aspect of my darkness, there was no other conclusion I could make.

Jeanne
...Then how did she acquire that massive strength?

Jeanne
That couldn't have been anything but the Holy Grail.
In other words, the Dragon Witch herself–

Gilles
Exactly.
The Dragon Witch herself was my wish.

Gilles
In other words, the Holy Grail itself.

Mash
What?

Elisabeth
Huh? Huh? Huh? What do you mean?
The dragon's the Holy Grail? Then me, too?

Kiyohime
You dragon-dummy, Jeanne d'Arc didn't use the Grail for evil.

Jeanne
You–created Jeanne d'Arc with the power of the Grail, didn't you?

Gilles
My wish was to revive you. It was a wish from my heart,
from the bottom of my heart. Of course it was.

Gilles
...But the Grail rejected me.
For all its omnipotent power, it said it couldn't do that!

Gilles
But my wish was only for you!
So I created a new you!

Gilles
The Saint I believed in! The Saint I longed for!
I created her!

Gilles
Jeanne d'Arc–the Dragon Witch.
The Grail itself!

Jeanne
...I see. But of course, she never learned that did she?

Jeanne
Gilles, even if you could revive me, I would never become your Dragon Witch.

Jeanne
It's true that I was betrayed, it's true that I was mocked.

Jeanne
It could only be described–as a tragic end.

Jeanne
But I could never hate my homeland.
This is where you and the others lived.

Gilles
...So kind. Your words are far too kind.
However, Jeanne...

Gilles
Your kindness has made you forget one thing.
Even if you never hated this country–

Gilles
I HATED THIS COUNTRY!
I swore I would destroy it for its betrayal!

Jeanne
Gilles...

Gilles
You will forgive them I'm sure. But I never will!
Not God! Not the King! Not the nation!

Gilles
I'll destroy them all. I'll kill them all.
That is the wish I made upon the Grail!

Gilles
DO NOT GET IN MY WAY, JEANNE D'ARC!

Jeanne
...Yes, you're right.
You're absolutely right.

Jeanne
It makes perfect sense for you to hate, and for you to use the Grail's power to destroy France.

Jeanne
And I–I will stop you.
As a Ruler, the judge of the Holy Grail War.

Jeanne
I will stand in your way Gilles de Rais!

Gilles
Then you are my enemy now.

Gilles
Let us finish this Jeanne d'Arc, savior of France—!

Jeanne
Let us indeed!

Mash
Master, I've confirmed the presence of the Grail.
Your orders!

  1. This is the last battle.
  2. Get ready.
  Select: This is the last battle.

  Select: Get ready.

===Branch End===

Mash
Right! Moving to recover the Grail!
Mash Kyrielight–here I go!

--BATTLE--

Gilles
Not, possible!
Even with the power of the Grail, I still...fell...

Gilles
That's not possible! Such nonsense can't be true!
I-I am still...

Jeanne
Gilles.
Enough.

Jeanne
Get some rest.
You did such a good job.

Jeanne
Believing in a little girl who had no clue, you even liberated this town.

Jeanne
...No matter who you are now, I believe in who you were back then.

Jeanne
Don't worry.
Until the very end, I have no regrets.

Jeanne
My death will light the way for someone else.
That's all I ever wanted.

Jeanne
Now let's go back to the time where we belong.

Gilles
...Jeanne.
I'm the only one of us who should go to Hell–

Dr. Roman
The Grail recovery is complete!
The timeline restoration is about to start!

Dr. Roman
Rayshift preparations are ready!
Get back here, now!

Mash
Understood Doctor!

Jeanne
You're leaving?
So soon?

  1. I have work to do.
  2. I have to go.
  Select: I have work to do.

  Select: I have to go.

===Branch End===

Elisabeth
Oh do you? Hmmph...
Well, I've achieved my goal, so I suppose it's fine.

Elisabeth
Goodbye Little Puppy, you fought fairly well.

Kiyohime
–Oh my, this is goodbye?
Don't worry Master.

Kiyohime
I can be rather persistent.
No matter where you go, I'll follow.

Kiyohime
That's what love is, after all.
...You know?

Kiyohime
Farewell.

Siegfried
...It seems that everything is over.
The wyverns are disappearing.

Georgios
This wasn't exactly a normal Holy Grail War.
But still, it was an honor to fight with the Dragon Slayer.

Siegfried
I never thought I'd get a chance to fight with the famous St. George.

Georgios
But from the look of things, it won't be long before we're summoned again.

Siegfried
Yes, that Master's journey seems to be a long one.
I hope we can aid them again–

Amadeus
My role is finally over, huh? I'm so tired.
I worked so hard my butt hurts.

Amadeus
...Oh, I'm not supposed to make those sort of jokes. Sorry.

Amadeus
Excellent conducting nonetheless, Fujimaru. A masterful performance all around.

G:Gilles
Jeanne!

Jeanne
Gilles!

G:Gilles
What happened?
Wait, you're alive?

G:Gilles
France is in ruins, but...
If you're alive, that's enough!

Jeanne
...No, that's not true.

G:Gilles
What–?

Jeanne
I'm sure on some level you understand.
This world is nothing but an ephemeral dream.

Jeanne
I died, and you–sorrowed.
That is history. That is unchangeable fate.

G:Gilles
Jeanne...

Jeanne
But in a different form, in a different way, we'll be able to fight together... I can feel it.

Jeanne
So this is but a temporary goodbye.

G:Gilles
You truly are... No, even in death, you still care for this country...

G:Gilles
Forgive us, Jeanne d'Arc!
We...France betrayed you!

G:Gilles
Ooooohh!

Jeanne
It's all right.
Let's at least leave this world with a smile.

Mash
Master... It's time.

Jeanne
Master and Mash.

Jeanne
I expect that my meeting with you Mash,
and Fujimaru, our battles, even the lives we lost...

Jeanne
All of this will disappear, won't it?
That makes me a little sad.

Jeanne
...Of course, it's a joyous thing that lives lost will return to us.

Jeanne
But I feel like I'll meet you again somewhere.
My intuition can be pretty good, you know?

Jeanne
–Farewell.
And thank you.

Jeanne
Even if all this disappears beyond the void, I'm sure something will–

Dr. Roman
Welcome back Mash, Fujimaru!
Good work!

Dr. Roman
Thanks to you, the first Grand Order was completed successfully.

Dr. Roman
—Yes, excellent job.
We had few supplies, no personnel...

Dr. Roman
...and the Rayshift was still at an experimental stage, yet you both did such a fine job.

Dr. Roman
I say this on behalf of all surviving members of Chaldea...

Dr. Roman
You are now full-grown Mages, and Chaldea is very proud of you!

Fou
Fou! Fooou!

Mash
...Fou made it back too.
Are we sure it's not a lucky animal of some sort?

Da Vinci
Oh, welcome back.
You guys look tired.

Da Vinci
Here's your latest observation records.
Take a look, Doctor.

Dr. Roman
Hm... Oooohh!

Dr. Roman
We did it! 15th century France is restored completely!
Still six to go, but–

Dr. Roman
Part of human history is in its rightful place!
We did it, Fujimaru!

Mash
Yes. But Doctor–we never saw Lev Lainur.

Mash
He was not in France?

Dr. Roman
Yes, he's probably hiding in one of the other 6 eras.
...No, I guess he wouldn't hide.

Dr. Roman
He has more than enough power.
If he's in the same time as us, he'll act.

Dr. Roman
...I'm sure we'll see him eventually.
Until then, we need to get stronger.

Dr. Roman
Well, details like that don't matter!

Dr. Roman
That's the end of our mission for today!

Dr. Roman
I bet you want a warm bed and a shower, right?
Go back to your room and rest.

Mash
Yes, that plan sounds absolutely wonderful.
See you later Doctor.

Mash
Oh, and Senpai...

Mash
Good work today.
Let's get back to it tomorrow!

  1. You too Mash.
  2. You feeling okay?
  Select: You too Mash.
Mash
...Yes, thank you.
Mash
Once again, I wasn't able to help you at all...
Mash
But I'm finally starting to think I can do this.
Mash
Together, I think we can make it through the next six eras.

  Select: You feeling okay?
Mash
Yes, just fine.
Mash
A Demi-Servant's body has incredible strength,
endurance, and self-healing abilities.
Mash
I'll be back to top health in just a short while.
Mash
You need to rest though, get some sleep.
Mash
Maybe you should have the Doctor take a look at you, he is a doctor after all.

===Branch End===

Mash
...

  1. What's wrong?
  2. Need something?
  Select: What's wrong?

  Select: Need something?

===Branch End===

Mash
No, I was just thinking of Gilles de Rais.

Mash
I knew his history, or so I thought.
His heart was broken by Jeanne's death...

Mash
In our history, he became a murderer who killed hundreds of children.

Mash
...That bloody France was what he wanted.
It was an appropriate sight for a murderer.

Mash
But still, even then–
His real wish was for Jeanne d'Arc to live.

Mash
That was the source of his rage, and his hatred.
A pure rage that could destroy a country–

Mash
Raw feelings are powerful, aren't they?
They can destroy the world–

  1. He was human, after all.
 
  Select: He was human, after all.

===Branch End===

Mash
...Because he was human.
Amadeus said something similar, right?

Mash
...I don't have the experience they do. I don't have those deep feelings, or a heart that can handle them.

Mash
But I'd like to learn them if I could.
Even if I don't understand, I can learn a little at a time.

Mash
I think that's what Amadeus was talking about.

Mash
I'll see you tomorrow.
Good night.

Mash

Sweet dreams.
May the blessing of the Saint be upon us.
