Event The Garden of sinners - the Garden of Order JP.png

Prelude

Show/Hide Story Chapter

  1. ...Another strange dream, Mash.  2. ...It's a really warm dream, Fou.
  Select: ...Another strange dream, Mash.

  Select: ...It's a really warm dream, Fou.

???:
Oh my. For a guest to arrive here... Is this some kind of mistake?
If you're dreaming, go back to where you came from.
This is a place without boundaries.
You have a name, so you shouldn't be here.

  1. Well, I woke up here...  2. I didn't come here because I wanted to...
  Select: Well, I woke up here...

  Select: I didn't come here because I wanted to...

???:
You didn't want to be here?
In that case... Hehe, sorry.
Looks like our connection was made from this side. Let me apologize while I can, (Player's Name).
I'm asleep and thus unaware of what's going on outside.
But I can take a guess.
I'm sure it's just another hack-and-slash type of case without a hint of romance.
What a disaster, busy Master. But it's a good thing to have things you can do, things you must do.
...Yes, rather than talk about myself, I would love to talk more about your future, but...
Too bad, the night is almost over. Seems like this dream is about to end.
If we meet again, could please call me by my name?

Dr. Roman:
Hi, I know it's only midnight, but good morning, (Player's Name). Sorry to wake you up.
However, it's an emergency, so I contacted you anyway.
I'm sorry, but please come to the Command Room immediately.
Mash:
Senpai!
Fou:
Fou, Foou!

  1. Good evening, Mash.  2. Good morning, Mash.
  Select: Good evening, Mash.
Mash:
Yes, good evening, Senpai. This will be a night shift, so thank you for all your hard work.
  Select: Good morning, Mash.
Mash:
Good morning... Meaning, you were already sleeping, Senpai?
I think it's good to sleep early. It means you're someone with dreams and hopes.

Mash:
—Oops, now is not the time for greetings.
Doctor Roman requested an urgent dispatch.
Hurry to the Command Room, Master!

  1. Right, let's get going!  2. ...Hey, isn't it kind of quiet?
  Select: Right, let's get going!
Fou:
Fou!

  Select: ...Hey, isn't it kind of quiet?
Mash:
Now that you mention it...
Chaldea does feel kind of empty...
Usually, you'll see a lot of non-assigned Servants strolling through these hallways...
But tonight of all nights, we didn't run into anyone...

Dr. Roman:
Ah, both of you are here.
That saves me time in explaining.
Now, then, please look at the monitor. Around Japan on the world map.
Mash:
Is it Singularity F? I thought we already recovered the Holy Grail at those coordinates.
Dr. Roman:
Not Fuyuki, but next to it. You can see a strange distortion, right?
It's been under observation for several days.
At first, I thought it was a small error caused by the fluctuation of Singularity F's repair.
But it wouldn't disappear even after a considerate amount of time. Then I tried changing Sheba's observation angle...
Mash:
There are signs of life!
But these coordinates should have been incinerated!
Dr. Roman:
Oh, and that's not all.
I only detected a few life forms, but I picked up countless moving objects.
On top of that, no matter how much I adjust Sheba, I can't get a read on the scale and era of these coordinates.
It's a complete black box. We won't know what's going on unless we Rayshift there.

  1. So, is it a new Singularity?  2. As usual, right?
  Select: So, is it a new Singularity?
Dr. Roman:
I'm sorry, but I can't even be sure about that. Humanity has been destroyed, and the outside world incinerated.
At least before 2018, when humans were still alive.
The cause of such atrocities, what made them possible, was our loss of coordinates called the Foundations of Humanity-
Historical events that became the essential support pillars of our human history...
...such as those that occurred in France and Rome.
In response, Chaldea prevented the collapse of these foundations by Rayshifting into them from outside the time flow.
Even if it's already incinerated in the proper timeline, Chaldea can Rayshift to a time before the destruction, and prevent its collapse.
(Player's Name), just think of what you've been doing as repairing a completely incinerated scroll.
However, these coordinates are different.
They don't exist in any history.
Think of it as something that's lost. A hole eaten away by bugs.

  Select: As usual, right?
Dr. Roman:
Yes, simply put, that's exactly it!
You're really reliable, (Player's Name)!
I was ready to explain a lot of things, but in short, you should take a chance on everything!

Mash:
...Hmmm, Doctor. I request further explanation on what you just said.
There are few signs of life, but multiple moving objects.
What does that mean?
Da Vinci:
Let me explain it! Even if it's the night shift, I can still give you a lecture with my glamorous beauty!
Who am I? I am the lady who loves those green cubes, everybody's favorite shop owner, Da Vinci!

  1. Good evening. It's a nice night out.  2. Are you kidding me with Mona Lisa?
  Select: Good evening. It's a nice night out.
Da Vinci:
It's the perfect night for a ghost story. Not that any of them happened at Chaldea.
  Select: Are you kidding me with Mona Lisa?
Da Vinci:
Oh, stop throwing silver embers at me! It's my bad! I was just having a little bit of fun!
But that Craft Essence was pretty well made, right? My only regret is that I couldn't write the explanation in mirrored letters.

Mash:
Good evening, Da Vinci. Please give us your explanation.
Da Vinci:
They are not alive, yet they are moving around... In other words, that place is full of zombies.
Well, it's not like you will be surprised by them. Zombies were in France, too.
But there's another problem, (Player's Name).
If the seven Singularities are like stains on the scroll we call human history, that fake Singularity is like a hole in that scroll.
I don't understand how it happened, but it's luring the Servants and trapping them in there.
Mash:
Trapping the Servants?
Dr. Roman:
Speaking of which, did you notice that Chaldea is a lot more quiet than usual?
The Servants that (Player's Name) successfully summoned and formed a contract with...
They're receiving magical energy from Chaldea and setting up anchors for their existence all around this base.
You can call it a temporary incarnation.
If they keep using magical energy from their Master each time they're summoned into battle, (Player's Name) would be all dried up already.
So, in order to lessen the burden cast on (Player's Name), Chaldea is using 40% of its power to sustain the contract with each Servant.
As long as Grand Order is still in effect, these Servants have made Chaldea their home.

  1. I didn't know...  2. I had a vague idea...
  Select: I didn't know...

  Select: I had a vague idea...

Da Vinci:
Yes, yes. Oh, just so you know, I'm different. Even if Chaldea's light has gone out, I can still sustain my body.
Dr. Roman:
Ahem!
About those Servants. A few of them disappeared when this distortion was observed.
They all headed to this distortion of their own free will...
And then they never came back.
Mash:
Never came back... So they weren't eliminated? That means... they stayed there?
Da Vinci:
Exactly. Their contracts with (Player's Name) are still intact.
The Heroic Spirits who Rayshifted to that strange hole are either staying there of their own free will, or—
Mash:
It's possible that they're trapped and can't come back.
Dr. Roman:
That's everything. This distortion has nothing to do with the Foundation of Humanity.
It wouldn't cause any harm even if left as it is... However, it's also true the Servants are not coming back.
(Player's Name). Mash.
I want you to investigate these coordinates.
Rayshifting anywhere other than a Singularity is an exception, and requires the authorization of the former Director, but...
Will you do it?

  1. Of course, Doctor.  2. If they are taken, we'll get them back!
  Select: Of course, Doctor.

  Select: If they are taken, we'll get them back!

Dr. Roman:
Thank you. You're so reliable!
Then we will commence Rayshifting now.
You two, start your preparations.
We don't know what might happen there.
And we won't be able to send backup.
Please, be careful over there. Oh, and one more thing...
This is just a hunch, but...
Perhaps (Player's Name) will find the scenery over there very familiar.
If that's the case, please show Mash around. She's never seen anything like that.
Mash:
?
Fou:
Fou?

  1. I don't really get it, but roger!  2. Familiar scenery?
  Select: I don't really get it, but roger!

  Select: Familiar scenery?

Dr. Roman:
You'll understand when you get there.
Well then, commencing Rayshift!


Encounter

Show/Hide Story Chapter

Mash:
A road made of asphalt...
High-rises like big walls...
This is...
This is...
I'm sure of it! This is the 21st-century Japan, Senpai!
Look! See? A vending machine that isn't destroyed!
Even a public phone, and a bus stop, too!
Ah, and that thing like a house is a toilet!
The city seems so quiet and the streets are so clean! The example of a perfectly safe city!
Unfortunately, I don't see any of those so-called convenience stores– The places that never sleep!
It really is just like what I've read...
One of my dreams has come true!

  1. It was your dream?  2. It seems pretty normal...
  Select: It was your dream?
Mash:
Ah... Yes. I'm sorry, I got carried away. It's not that I dreamed of visiting a city in Japan.
Not only Tokyo, but Washington, Moscow, Beijing, Rome, Madrid...
Any one of them would have been fine. I just wanted to visit a major city from the era I live in.

  Select: It seems pretty normal...
Mash:
Ugh, It's almost like you're saying, "What's so special about a city like this?"
Senpai, did you live in a city like this one? No, I am sure you did.
Please tell me more about it, in detail! Everything from your life in elementary school to high school! Please!

Dr. Roman:
Hello, test, test.
Communication, video feed, both working fine.
Ah, as I thought... Judging from these coordinates and time, I predicted your destination to be a city in Japan.
But... I didn't expect it to be such an urban area. This seems pretty fishy to me...
Mash:
...You're right. A normal city in a time like this is the most abnormal thing.
The only two normal life-form responses are from Senpai and myself... But I'm also getting some higher-class life-form responses from that building.
-A big city like this, with this many houses, and still no one in sight.
Dr. Roman:
Building? Oh, that cylindrical one? It sure looks weird...
(Player's Name), can you tell us anything about it?

  1. It's like a spooky tower.  2. It's just an apartment.
  Select: It's like a spooky tower.
Mash:
...I agree.
I'm getting chills just looking at it.

  Select: It's just an apartment.
Mash:
Just an apartment? But its design is so different than the other buildings surrounding it...

Dr. Roman:
Anyway, that building is undeniably suspicious. I'm picking up readings of multiple Servants inside as well.
Mash:
No obstacles detected from here to the building entrance. Let's go there and... Wait! Senpai!
There's someone around the entrance! It's-
Dr. Roman:
I'm picking up multiple strange signals! Residual wills...
They're ghosts!
Looks like a Servant is fighting with them!

  1. Hurry up, Mash!
  Select: Hurry up, Mash!

Mash:
Yes, Master!
Dr. Roman:
Wait! I'm not picking up any more ghost readings! They didn't disperse, they disappeared-
As if they were erased with an eraser!
That's a little scary, isn't it!? What is it!?
Mash:
Servant response, entering our line of sight! Is that- a woman?
???:
...Phew, cheap dream.
Its quality is too low to be a nightmare.
Ghosts with skulls as faces? Man, they gotta get with the times.
Mash:
It's a girl... in a kimono... holding a knife!
Senpai, who is she?

  1. I don't know her.  2. It's the first time I've ever seen her face.
  Select: I don't know her.

  Select: It's the first time I've ever seen her face.

Mash:
...Just as I thought.
Let's try to talk to her first...
???:
No need. I don't want to talk to you. It'll take too long.
Doesn't matter if you're good or bad. With this knife in your head, you can say goodbye to this reality.
You're the one who stuck your nose in other people's business, yeah? I am gonna send that nose, along with your head, to where they belong!
Mash:
...Here, she comes!
I don't get it, but it's a battle, Master!

BATTLE

Mash:
Battle was interrupted, but we still don't know that Servant's real name, nor its attack pattern!
Doctor, please give us your analysis!
How can a simple knife cut not only a Servant's body, but easily cut its armor too?!
Dr. Roman:
...It's Mystic Eyes. I can't believe Mystic Eyes of this level still exist in the modern era.
Mash:
Doctor?
Dr. Roman:
In the world of Magecraft, magical eyes that can perceive all things mystical are called Mystic Eyes.
These eyes can project phenomena without casting any sorts of chants or rituals. They just need to look.
The most popular types are "Binding," "Compulsion," "Contract," "Flame," "Illusion," and "Jinx."
Even among them, her eyes are special. The type that can "Stop" everything, it's even more powerful than "Petrification."
Her rainbow eyes materialize the concept of death and capture it. If I had to give them a name, I'd call them the Mystic Eyes of Death Perception.
How incredible! That's an ability fit for a Divine Spirit!
To kill an enemy just by looking at them... Talk about overpowered!
???:
...What's up with him?
He sounded so fake and unimportant...
I'm not a Heroic Spirit.
I can't kill anyone just by looking at them.
All I can do is see death... Lines that trace death. Ummm, like the eventual end of all things.
Would you understand if I say I simply trace the cause. the result of eventual death?
Mash:
Oh, um, I see... The, uh, lines that trace death... The, the eventual end of all things... Y-Yes...

  1. I'm sorry, I don't get it at all.  2. So you slash a person's life span?
  Select: I'm sorry, I don't get it at all.
Mash:
...Me neither. It seems to be a highly advanced magical theory, but...

  Select: So you slash a person's life span?
Mash:
Senpai, you understand?!
???:
Huh, that was easy. Hey, you must be a big otaku, right?
Disgusting. Absolutely disgusting.
Dr. Roman:
(Nice, (Player's Name)! She looks happy! Really happy!)

???:
Whatever. Hey, you there! The slippery-looking one!
Mash:
M-Me?!
???:
Of course! Who else could it be? Physically, you're not a complete Servant, right?
Mash:
R-Right. I'm a Demi-Servant, so you could say that my base body is human...
???:
I see. I thought you were that shadowy bastard's friend.
That man/woman's eyes are glittering, I guess that rules out the possibility of being possessed by some weird illusions.
My bad for attacking you. All right, see ya.

  1. What? Hold on!  2. Where do you think you're going?!
  Select: What? Hold on!

  Select: Where do you think you're going?!

???:
I am going to tear down this apartment. I can't just leave it like that.
It's crawling with disgusting things inside. If I let it be, it's gonna cause trouble for the neighbors.
Say, do you guys watch horror movies?
You do? Good.
You know the deal... Things like walking corpses, ghosts you aren't supposed to see...
Things like that are running rampant in there... All because of Servants.
Mash:
All because of... Servants?
???:
Yeah. Servants live in that apartment like it's their own.
Thanks to them, it's all becoming one big block party.
I mean, Servants are kinda like ghosts, right?
If they gain physical bodies, others will get carried away too.
Well, as for myself, I am also showing up as a Servant.
If you're a Demi-Servant, I guess that makes me a Pseudo-Servant.
Most likely I had a connection with this building, so I ended up being summoned. It's really annoying.

  1. If you're a Servant, you need a Master...  2. Will you be okay by yourself?
  Select: If you're a Servant, you need a Master...

  Select: Will you be okay by yourself?

???:
Who cares? If I vanish, it actually saves me some trouble.
At least I don't have to go through this ordeal.
Mash:
I don't know if you're being frank, or you just don't care about yourself...
Still, though...
There must be a reason why we met here!
If you don't have a Master, could you work with Chaldea?
???:
...A reason, you say.
This, too, must be my fate... I don't hate it.
That one over there is a Master, right? If I help you, that would really make me look like a Servant.
I'm merely an outsider who was summoned here. I don't intend on concerning myself with others.
However, I want to pay back that despicable shadowy bastard...
Fou:
Fou, foou!
???:
!
Mash:
Fou!?
Were you hiding in my shield again?
???:
...Are you kidding me? What is this furball?

  1. You never know when Fou will show up...  2. Fou is everyone's favorite Runner!
  Select: You never know when Fou will show up...

  Select: Fou is everyone's favorite Runner!

???:
...Ryougi Shiki.

  1. What?
  Select: What?

Ryougi Shiki:
That is my name.
What's your name?
Mash:
Right, this is Master (Player's Name).
My name is Mash Kyrielight.
If we're exchanging our names like this... Does that mean you'll help us, Shiki?
Ryougi Shiki:
...Well, if you think about it, the fact that you're a Master probably means you're related to the Servants living here somehow, right?
In that case, you're supposed to be the ones to get rid of them. Good luck. I'll be giving you a hand too, so don't worry.

  1. Thank you, Ryougi-chan!  2. ...Do you like cats?
  Select: Thank you, Ryougi-chan!
Ryougi Shiki:
You can just call me Ryougi. Aren't you embarrassed, using "chan?"

  Select: ...Do you like cats?
Ryougi Shiki:
No, I don't.
Also, I wouldn't call that thing a cat.
It has good fur and feels really nice, that's all. It doesn't even look like one. That's insulting to cats.

Dr. Roman:
Oh... I was keeping my mouth shut because she didn't look like she could take a joke... But I'm glad it all worked out!
Erm... Should I call you Miss Ryougi? You seem to know all about that apartment?
What was it like inside? Did it turn into a different dimension? It won't kill them upon entering, right?
As you can see, (Player's Name) is just a human. If the air composition is abnormal then...
Ryougi Shiki:
Ah, you don't have to worry.
Rest assured, it's the same Ogawa as ever.
But there are lots of enemies, and there are some funny traps.
Mash:
Funny traps?
What kind of traps?
Ryougi Shiki:
That will be a surprise. It was a questionable property from the start anyway.
Here used to be the grave marker of an old mage who attempted to collect death. A hollow shrine that fused the yin-yang and hell together.
People say "investigations start from the bottom," right?
Enjoy the case, (Player's Name).
So once again, rookie Master... Welcome to this 64-story shrine, Ogawa Heim.


1st Floor, Room No.1

Show/Hide Story Chapter

Mash:
It's so cold... Something's not right, Senpai. The thermometer shows normal values, but I feel like we're inside a freezer...
Ryougi Shiki:
Yeah, absolutely. Since there's an air conditioner, why don't you try turning on the heater?
Isn't that right, big guy? Just because your soul becomes cold, that doesn't mean your body has to be cold too, right?
Benkei:
...Hmm.
Mash:
Benkei!?
Are you living in this room!?
Or... Are you imprisoned here, like what the Doctor suggested?
Please answer me, Benkei. Why did you come to this apartment?
Benkei:
...I don't accept it. I don't! It's unforgivable... unforgivable!
Abandoned by Heaven, forgotten by the earth, and deceived by the people! Why would you turn away from this respectable life?
Instead of training your wisdom, you mastered uglinesss.
It's outrageous! I can't let it be, I have to make a stand!
Mash:
Servant, Musashibou Benkei is switching to combat mode!
I can't get a read on this situation, Master!

  1. Let's attack, Mash!  2. Let's attack, Shiki!
  Select: Let's attack, Mash!
Mash:
Yes... Let's start a Servant battle!

  Select: Let's attack, Shiki!
Ryougi Shiki:
You don't have to tell me.
Our first opponent is a monk? Talk about a twist of fate!


BATTLE

Benkei:
Ooohhh... Oooohhhhhh... Nghhhhhohhhhhhh!
Mash:
Benkei... has disappeared.
Is he going to be alright?
Dr. Roman:
Hmmm, I'm not sure.
When a contract is bound to Chaldea...
The defeated Spirit Origin doesn't return to the Throne of Heroes, but to Chaldea instead.
Given some time, he'll probably return to Chaldea.
We still don't know why he was in that room, but it seems like you just "freed" a Servant.
Mash:
Is that so? He was rather aggressive, but at least we've reached a solution.
Ryougi Shiki:
As I thought, there's nothing here. This is the wrong room. Let's check the others, (Player's Name).
What? You look sad...
Don't tell me you're feeling down?

  1. Of course.  2. I mean... Benkei's...
  Select: Of course.

  Select: I mean... Benkei's...

Ryougi Shiki:
Hey, guys. I should let you know, this apartment's always been like this, okay?
You can feel bad for him, but I can't do anything if you let that get to you...
I mean, if you guys didn't force them out, they would've gone on like that forever.
Don't you think that would've been even more tragic?
Dr. Roman:
...That's right. It's just as Ryougi says.
It may be a little violent, but if a Servant attacks us, we'll have to face them as enemies.
Looks like that's our best option in this apartment. Do you understand, Mash and (Player's Name)?

  1. ..Yes I do.  2. You're right, this room is full of pain.
  Select: ..Yes I do.

  Select: You're right, this room is full of pain.

Ryougi Shiki:
We have to keep a positive mindset, no matter what.
Those imprisoned here all had a negative way of thinking.
Let's keep pace and proceed with our investigation.


1st Floor, Room No.2

Show/Hide Story Chapter

Ryougi Shiki:
♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪
Mash:
Shiki seems to be in a good mood, Senpai...
Humming all the while, with her hands in her pockets, skipping down the hallway...

  1. You're not feeling well, Mash?  2. She looks so happy...
  Select: You're not feeling well, Mash?
Mash:
N-No, I've fought against numerous walking corpses till now, but not like this... I mean...
It's the first time I fought against someone who looked like he was alive until yesterday...

  Select: She looks so happy...
Dr. Roman:
I can even tell that from across a monitor. She looks reluctant but she's actually the type who enjoys a good fight, isn't she?

Mash:
However, we can't stay uninformed like this forever.
To us, it's a strange world, but to Shiki... it's a familiar scene. In that case...
...Excuse me, Shiki!
Ryougi Shiki:
Hm? What? If you need the restroom, you'll have to go outside or go inside a room.
Mash:
No, that's not it...
This is an apartment, right?
This place feels cold regardless of the temperature outside. Police officers and residents still walk around despite being dead.
It's obviously unconventional in modern Japan. In that case, this place must be a magecraft workshop built in secrecy, right?
Ryougi Shiki:
If it were, it wouldn't be quite so bad... Unfortunately, this apartment was built in public with no secrets.
A permit was submitted to the local office, and a normal construction company worked on it,.
It even asked regular folks to move in. However, now it's becoming a place no one wants to go near.
Dr. Roman:
...It's a barrier created using man's natural instinct to avoid taboos... without a single trace of Magecraft.
It's common sense for mages after the 20th century to conceal their workshops in order to avoid detection from the public.
However, we can't detect any traces of magical energy from this place.
If it's a magecraft workshop, then whoever created it must be really cautious and patient.
That mage built a building this size to perform a ritual, yet didn't rely on Magecraft.
They simply built this place from the ground up, brick by brick, all by themselves. Kind of like building a tower.
Which reminds me of Buddhist folklore that talks about children stacking rocks in hell, with all effort and no gain.
Just simply continuing a mundane task without complaint, and without companionship.
Ryougi Shiki:
..The Children's Limbo, huh?
Indeed, it fits him.
But you're wrong, it's not a nice place like that. This is simply a building that collects death.
Death by natural causes, illness, accidents, and violence.
An exhibit hall decorated with various methods of death.
Those zombies wandering the hallways, they're, you know... The previous residents of this building.
They're designed to live one day, and die the next. Even though they already died many years ago.
...I know this might sound obvious, but humans are born with a certain fate.
No matter how much you fight back, your eventual end – the cause of your death – will never change.
Those destined to die in an accident, whether they've achieved happily ever after, or an abrupt demise, their lives will end in a form of "accidental death."
...There used to be a guy who was trying to prove that, and the residents of this apartment were merely "samples" for his theory.
When night falls, they die. When morning comes, they are reborn. No matter what happens, they always die the same way.
It's a loop, no, a retry. Since before you guys came here, people have been coming back to life and dying, endlessly.

  1. ...  2. ...How can I say it? It's...
  Select: ...

  Select: ...How can I say it? It's...

Mash:
...I know how you feel.
That system is... How should I put it?
Ryougi Shiki:
Inhumane, is that what you want to say?
Hmm. You're all mages yourselves, and yet... That kind of thing still troubles you?
Dr. Roman:
(Player's Name) is not a mage, so (he/she) tends to think differently than those elites at the Mage's Association.
But... I don't understand this building at all. What can they achieve with this kind of experiment?
There are no results. There is no gain.
Even if they're creating a model case, there's no goal...
Ryougi Shiki:
You'll have to ask the creator himself.
Although he's no longer in this world.
Anyway, this is now a haunted apartment with zombies walking around.
On top of that, ghosts and Servants are starting to show up. The effects are showing up in the outside world.
...Seriously. It's creepy, but this one-life-one-death world wasn't supposed to cause trouble for anybody.
I mean, what the hell are those Servants?!
All of them are in some weird get-ups...
Mash, you were lucky that this was a haunted apartment. You would've been reported if we were in front of the station.
Mash:
Reported? Is that because I am not from around here?
Ryougi Shiki:
...Say, do you know why I only carry a knife around me?
Dr. Roman:
Ah, so that's what you mean... You're right!
(Player's Name), we're lucky that his Singularity isn't a perfect recreation of the downtown area.
If we were in front of a station, just Mash changing into her Servant form would get us in trouble with the police.
I didn't talk about this a lot, but Chaldea is what you would call "a secret organization."
You can't recklessly summon your Servants nor arm Mash in front of people.
It depends on the city, but Mash's Servant form could be considered indecent in some places.

  1. NO WAY!  2. You just realized?
  Select: NO WAY!

  Select: You just realized?

Ryougi Shiki:
...I wasn't talking about her appearance, but her weapon... Anyway...
We're here. There's no nameplate either, right? I'm sure a Servant is living in this room.
Mash:
...Yes.
I can detect a Servant's Spirit Origin in there.
What will we do, Master?

  1. Let's ring the doorbell.  2. Let's go inside.
  Select: Let's ring the doorbell.

  Select: Let's go inside.

Ryougi Shiki:
Right, that's the spirit.
Here is the key. I will give it to you.
Mash:
...(Gulp)
Master, I'll open the door.
...Who on earth is inside this room?
Mephisto:
Yes, yes certainly!
Welcome, unknown Master!
You too, Miss Demi-Servant!
The one who moved into this grudge-soaked apartment, of course it is I, Demon Mephistopheles!
Ryougi Shiki:
...What's the deal with his scissors?
Oh, he knows Mash?
This funny guy here is Mash's big brother or what?
Mash:
I couldn't take having a brother like Mephisto! The breakfast table would be a catastrophe!
Mephisto:
The breakfast table? That's all you're worried about?
Yes, you're right, breakfast should be enjoyed quietly.
I may look like this, but I've cared for stubborn and stinky old guys, too.
I'm able to make a good and tasty breakfasts, unfortunately, I'm incapable of closing this mouth!
Even if you sew it, or zip it, it's useless! Even without a mouth, I can give you bad news using ventriloquism.
For example, my neighbor in Room 3. Watanabe, was it?
Tormented by his lover, whom he strangled.
He's like a skull, a nervous wreck, malnourished! At 2 o'clock, the time of his crime, the madness begins!
Drugs, hanging, wrist-slashing, gas poisoning.
Every night he has to escape from his nightmare.
His excuses for his own actions are quite unsightly, and yet pleasurable.
There is no better spice to make a meal delicious than other people's misfortune!
Mash:
This manner of speaking... this is the real Mephisto! But why are you here?!
Mephisto:
Oh? Oh, oh, oh!
Hmm? Hum, hum, hum...
This is the first time I'm meeting you, but how many times have you met me?
I knew it!
I've already caused trouble for you!
This is destiny! Conviction, betrayal and satisfaction!
Now I understand why I was summoned to Chaldea!
Unfortunately, I am different from that thing, the "I" that was summoned in early stages!
Hahaha! Hehehehe! And!
I am the criminal behind this case!
I am the one who invited those ghosts into this apartment!
It was also I who infiltrated Chaldea, and lured promising-looking Servants one by one!
That was all my handiwork!
Yahoo! It worked perfectly!
Hmm, but now I have to break the bad news to you. Yes, Mephy is sad!
I've finally met a good Master like you, and now I have to cut you into pieces.
You see, the previous tenant of this room had a bizarre hobby... He would sever the limbs of his loved one every night.
He did it to hide the dead body? But get this? He tripped and accidentally killed himself while cutting up the body in the bathroom!
It was so hilarious so I took over his job for him.
Where is this tenant now you ask?
Well, you see, now he's just in the way, right? I mean, he must be bored to death now that he can't accidentally kill himself anymore?
That's why I intervened to make it funny. By now, he must have escaped the system, and joined his ghost buddies outside!
Now, let's start! Let's just start! It's annoying to explain so let's just start!
I am the demon, the bomber, Mephisto Pheles! The demon who blows up boring daydreams!
Wow, I repeated the word demon so many times! But it doesn't matter!
Master and Lady, please be sure to remember this, now!
Mash:
Mephisto Pheles is in combat mode!
Master, what should we do?!
Ryougi Shiki:
What should we do? There's only one thing to do! Our opponent is ready!
Don't worry, I'm used to handling bombers. I'll wipe that smirk off his face before the bomb blows up!

BATTLE

Mephisto:
Oh... How can this be... To ignore what you're told is a bad move, a lost cause, extreme uselessness!
You killed me, the only one who knows the truth! Now the case is cold, dead people tell no tales. It's too late!
But how should I put it? There are a lot of mystery novels where the perpetrator dies in the beginning, right?
You guys, use your heads, and solve this abnormal situation!
Mash:
...Enemy Servant eliminated.
Was that really the right move?

  1. Now we have no clues...  2. Let's visit the next Servant.
  Select: Now we have no clues...
Mash:
Right... Although Mephisto's words are not really trustworthy, if he really was the cause of this abnormality...
...Then we just destroyed the only lead we had...
We're bad detectives.

  Select: Let's visit the next Servant.
Ryougi Shiki:
Oh, you recovered from that pretty fast. Right, that's not a bad thing.
Don't feel bad, Mash.
Eliminating one or two perpetrators won't be an issue.
Didn't I say "investigations start from the bottom"? The next crime scene is waiting for us, detective.

Dr. Roman:
Hum... Detective story... So this was a detective story?
No, never mind that...
Even if it was self-proclaimed, killing the perpetrator is pretty damaging...
At least if we'd arrested him, we could've interrogated him about this place, and why it attracts ghosts...
Mephisto:
That's right! I'm really sorry! I wanted to be useful and use my scissors as much as possible...
...but this time, I had nothing to do, there was no room for me to act! I ended up moving around in vain!
Mash:
Yes, until now, I can't remember you being useful at any time... Basically, you're totally useless...
Wh-What?!
Ryougi Shiki:
Sc-Scissors guy!?

  1. Why did you come out of your room?  2. This is Mash's big brother?!
  Select: Why did you come out of your room?

  Select: This is Mash's big brother?!

Ryougi Shiki:
There was another one!?
Good, I'll kill you as many times as it takes!
Mephisto:
Wait, no need for that.
The one you defeated is the evil Mephisto.
The one here is me, the good Mephisto.
Ah, in other words...
One of me laments this situation, and the other one enjoys it. But now is not the time to question my conscience.
So, if I split my good heart and evil heart apart like this...
I can basically close myself! Oooohhh, UNBELIEVABLE!

  1. Hmm, you did show up as support.
  Select: Hmm, you did show up as support.

Mephisto:
Of course.
Hmm... (Player's Name), was it?
From now, I am a loyal Servant of (Player's Name)! SO. LOYAL. (LMAO)
To prove it, I shall part ways with my evil self and lend a hand to everyone here!
Mash:
Ah... It seems too good to be true, but...
What do you think, Master?

  1. Tell the truth in two lines or less.  2. Tell us what you know in two lines or less.
  Select: Tell the truth in two lines or less.

  Select: Tell us what you know in two lines or less.

Ryougi Shiki:
Good decision. You really are good.
Mephisto:
Only two lines? That's impossible! But I will try. I am an innocent clown. I merely play the pipe like Hamelin did!
Mash:
It's two lines!
Ryougi Shiki:
You can do it if you try.
Dr. Roman:
Hmm. If you call yourself innocent, then you have nothing to do with this fake Singularity, right?
Mephisto:
Not in the least! To tell you the truth... I'm truly sorry but if you could allow me to get involved, and tone down the rate of ghost-gathering, I could make a horror show, incredibly realistic, about half dead, half living, killing and being killed...
Ryougi Shiki:
In two lines!
Mephisto:
I was summoned by someone else, not via Chaldea's summoning system, to this tower of resentment.
By that guy, his name is... That guy... Grand something.
That guy is one class above mine.
Mash:
!!!
Mephisto:
He said to me, "Shouldn't you be on this side?" And he does have a point, so...
After that, I split dramatically.
My evil self disguised itself as a Servant of Justice and infiltrated Chaldea.
I'm sure that's possible because I'm over there.
Because only Servants who were summoned by a Master can find Chaldea.
My evil self used this clever loophole, and started recruiting.
He said: "There's a new place to live. There are rooms for Servants. You don't need a deposit. The first month is free. Move in as fast as possible!"
Ah, I am such a good salesman! I am jealous of myself!
But it can't be helped. Chaldea's rooms for Servants are too small!
No posters on the wall. No pets in the rooms, except for those that came with horses.
That's why everyone came to this side. Then, when I got the chance...
I escaped from the Grand-something's contract, and happily waited for all of you to arrive!
Ah, I knew!
That (Player's Name) would admonish my evil self and believe in my good heart... hehe, to think that you'd believe in me!
Ryougi Shiki:
You heard him.
People really trust you.

  1. Don't tell me you're coming with us, Mephy?  2. Weren't you just laughing, right now?
  Select: Don't tell me you're coming with us, Mephy?
Mephisto:
Of course I am!
Don't think about kicking me out!

  Select: Weren't you just laughing, right now?
Mephisto:
Of course I laughed!
I laugh when good things happen, I'm human after all!

Fou:
Fou, foou!
Mash:
Fou...
...Master. Fou is also encouraging you, let's bring Mephisto with us.
If we can make him tell us what he knows on the way, that would be great. Just don't expect too much.

  1. You're right.  2. Mephisto, don't betray us, okay?
  Select: You're right.
Mephisto:
Hehe, did you reach a conclusion?

  Select: Mephisto, don't betray us, okay?

Mephisto:
Don't worry.
I'll absolutely obey the winner.
In the first place, speaking of danger, I'm the same as Miss Assassin right there.
Please, could you add me to this investigation team?
Be careful of your back and neck!
Mash:
...You heard him.
Are you the same as him, Shiki?

Ryougi Shiki:
Don't compare me with him!
My knife cuts way better than his scissors!

  1. That's what gets you angry?!

1st Floor, Room No.4

Show/Hide Story Chapter

Dr. Roman:
This sure is a strange-looking apartment... Its corridors are much longer than they appear to be.
...its elevator has a "Forever Out of Order" sign, and it's always empty.
There's a sign that points to the stairs going up, but we'll never reach it.
Ryougi, was this building always like this? Or is it just this time?
Ryougi Shiki:
Yeah. It was always a creepy apartment, but this time it's even worse.
The width of the corridors, the number of rooms... Stuff like that doesn't really make a difference.
But this temperature... I can't deal with this cold. Now this really feels like a haunted house.
Mash:
You mentioned this as a place that collects death. It doesn't collect ghosts?
Ryougi Shiki:
Indeed. It's more like it traps them here. It didn't collect them endlessly like this.
Now this place is like a whirlpool. It pulls in unrelated stuff and turns it into evil.

  1. ...Evil?  2. ...Harmless ghosts becoming evil spirits?
  Select: ...Evil?

  Select: ...Harmless ghosts becoming evil spirits?

Mephisto:
Big swirl! Hole, gap, black hole! I got it! It's easier to understand this way!
I thought this place was like a magnetic field that attracted grudges like a lightning rod...
But a big tree's hollow trunk is more suitable. Once you take a peek, if you're unlucky, you will fall into the eternal abyss.
Hehe... A trap hole that opened in reality? Make sure you don't push me!
Mash:
Mephisto, you're saying it, but stop pushing Senpai, please!
Ryougi Shiki:
You guys sure get along. Was he like this back in Chaldea, too?
Mash and Dr. Roman:
He is, without a doubt, the exact same Servant!
No doubt about it!
Mephisto:
Is that so!?
I'm really troublesome!
Ah, putting that aside, Miss Ryougi?
I'm worried about that thing you have there.
Mystic Eyes of Death Perception, right? I heard they can cut down anything regardless of strength.
They sever the very activity of living. They bring instant death, yet it's different than brain death or heart attack.
I understand. I do understand... but they work on living things, right?
Yet you're killing zombies who are not living. How is that possible?
That's my doubt!
To kill dead people... It's complete nonsense!
Ryougi Shiki:
Hell if I know. It might look the same to humans, but ceasing to live and dying are two different things.
Doesn't matter if it's zombie or ghosts, they're moving...
If they are moving, that means they are "living."
If it's alive, no matter what, death will come. May it be oblivion or disintegration.
My eyes don't make any distinctions between those things.
Mephisto:
That is... Painful!
You have gone through much, Miss Ryougi!
Ryougi Shiki:
Not really. It's better than becoming a demon in order to continue living, isn't it?
Mephisto:
—Oh. You're right.
Dr. Roman:
—Stop (Player's Name)!
Watch your front and not just your back!
I'm detecting a Servant!
Not in the room, it's in the corridor—
There's someone at the end of it!
Jekyll:
Hey, good evening, Mephisto.
Are these the new tenants?
Welcome to the grudge garden.
Nice to meet you. I've met you before, haven't I?
I'm Jekyll from Room 4.
I'm the manager of this corridor, too.
You just arrived, so you haven't mutated, right?
You're not ready to go upstairs.
It is better to stay on the first floor a little longer. It's a little cold, but you'll get used to it.
Do you want to rest a little in my room?
It is a bit untidy right now, but you can use it.
Mash:
...Master... That Jekyll... is scary...
I can't explain it, but he's very—

  1. ...Yeah, his eyes aren't laughing.  2. His shirt is covered in blood.
  Select: ...Yeah, his eyes aren't laughing.

  Select: His shirt is covered in blood.

Mephisto:
Whaaat? Mephisto don't wanna go!
Me don't like dirty room.
Dirty room? Is that a dirty room?
It's no good. It's no good at all!
I like to expose people's fetishes, but I don't like looking at them.
So, please, Master, decline Jekyll's invitation.
He's not suitable as a Servant in the first place.
If you know it's dirty, clean it up!
Or perhaps...
Scrupulous Jekyll is sleeping?
You're someone who can't clean up?
Jekyll:
Uh... Well, to tell you the truth, you're right. I'm bad at cleaning up, and besides...
Hyde:
It gets dirty and red instantly!
I can't clean it up every single time, right?!
Mash:
Shiki!
Hyde:
I see, someone here totally gets it!
But that was a perfect surprise attack! Why the hell would you block that!?
Anyway, I see that you're the same as me!
Pretending to be normal, but you're just a mass murderer who's craving to cut people's heads off!
Ryougi Shiki:
...Tch, what was that? Disappointing... And here I was looking forward to this fated encounter.
Before I knew it, I was at Ogawa Heim. I was already a Servant.
Facing countless ghosts and their grudges, running into a strange Master.
Ah, yes... (Player's Name) and Mash are good.
It's not that bad yet.
But I wasn't satisfied.
That much I know.
The only reason I could remain motivated was because I had a hunch! That I might run into the real thing.
The one who came before. The world famous mass murderer with dual personalities!
But what's this? Are you kidding me? Why did you transform? I thought we could enjoy some time together.
I'm shocked.
Hey, please turn back to that kind-looking guy.
That one is probably stronger, and I prefer him.
Hyde:
What? Do you prefer that moron over me? Why?
Are you sure? This is the real me!
From that weak Jekyll, I become the strong Hyde! The one who's good with the knife is me, you know?!
Ryougi Shiki:
...Hah. That's enough, tell him. Scissors.
I think you can understand me.
Hyde:
...What?
Mephisto:
Okay, okay. I understand you completely!
Yes, I do, I understand you, miss!
Mr. Hyde, this is what she's saying. Don't show the ace up your sleeve too quickly. If you do that, it's basically saying, "This is my limit."
It's more fun to watch a good human fight while suppressing his own demons, as we still don't know what will happen!
The catharsis of collapse, was it?
I serve under the Master because I want to witness that explosive moment!
If you want to play with a beast that is aggressive from the start you can go to a Savannah!
That's what she wants to see!
It's not the mass murders committed by Hyde.
...But the immoral crimes committed by the good Jekyll as he cries tears of regret. Now that's ecstasy!
Ryougi Shiki:
...I'm an idiot to have let you talk.
You're completely wrong. Get out of my way.
Mephisto:
Mephy, shocked!
Ryougi Shiki:
But I do prefer the goodie-goodie looking one. It's like the difference between fighting for fun and fighitng for your life.
If you have to kill, it's more enthralling to fight desperately, right?
In other words, you are not enough.
Come back again another time...
Hyde:
HAH! I see, I see!
You can't enjoy it if it's not serious!?
You're one crazy lady!
Then, let's have fun with this little dance!

BATTLE

Jeykll:
Ugh... Hyde came out again...
Sorry... Hyde and I were manipulated...
(Player's Name), be careful with Mephisto...
He cannot be trusted...
Mephisto:
Oh? Me?
No, no. Don't you know I'm changed man?
Wait, I can't change!
I mean, I am already the good Mephy!
If I change, I will become the evil one! Nope, not changing, not ever going to chaaaaaaannnge.
Jekyll:
Ugh... What is this, I can't maintain my body... My eyes... It's all dark...
(Player's Name), give me your hand, please...
I have something that I have to give you...

  1. (Offer your hand to Jekyll)  2. ...
  Select: (Offer your hand to Jekyll)
Jekyll:
Good... You have the heart to trust people...
You are the Master I've always hoped for.
Come on, take this key.

  Select: ...
Mash:
...Master?!

Jekyll:
Use it to go to the upper floor-
But before you go... Dieeeee!
Hyde:
Ggg-!
Ryougi Shiki:
Thanks.
I will glady accept this key.
Hyde:
Y-Yooouu! Twice!
You ruined my surprise attack twice!
I'm amazed that you can't even fulfill a dying pretty boy's wish! Don't you have the heart to trust people?!
Ryougi Shiki:
If you were your normal self, I would've been deceived, or rather moved, by your kindness.
But neither happened to me this time.
I mean... You've been one personality the whole time.
Hyde:
-Ugh.
Don't tell me, you already knew?!
Ryougi Shiki:
I wanted to meet the famous Doctor Jekyll, but he is not here.
Instead of having a split personality, you were acting like someone with dual personalities.
As a fan, you can't blame me for being disappointed, can you?
Hyde:
Ah... Dammit that's embarrassing. It's even more embarrassing than me losing in a knife fight.
I'd bury my head in the sand if I could. But looks like I don't need to do that, right?
Considering there's a dangerous fan here, I guess I shall take my leave.
See ya, mass murderer of the present. Just be careful and make sure you don't become knock-off.
Mash:
...Enemy Servant eliminated.
Um... What was that just now?
Ryougi Shiki:
I don't know.
Hey Scissors, say something.
Mephisto:
Hehehe! Not that it's important, so I will keep it in two lines!
Dr. Jekyll fully mutated when he arrived at this apartment. Both his body and soul rotted away, so he died!
Mash:
Doctor Jekyll is a Servant with a split personality... So what you're saying is that this main personality is gone already?
Dr. Roman:
So Hyde, who survived, was acting like Doctor Jekyll...
Just like how this story ended... So sad.
Fou:
Fou...
Mash:
But what do you mean by mutated?
Jekyll was a Servant who transformed into Hyde with drugs, but it seems you're not talking about those...
Mephisto:
Ah, I forgot to mention it.
It is what makes this apartment special.
Certain characteristics? Past history? Criminal record?
Hmmmmm, well, let's just keep that vague.
Anyway, if certain Servants stay here, their alignment will change, and become more resentful.
I myself was changed that way! Even if I want to fight, I took an arrow to the shin! Ow!
Dr. Roman:
Changing Heroic Spirits' alignment?!
Is that like a new way of tampering with parameters?!
Mephisto:
Yes. Well, they get angry easily so it's more like stress level? Like lowering the boiling point?
So i's not really that harmful.
However-
For the people that ended their full of resentment and sadness, this place will work wonders!
Heroic Spirits ending up as evil ghosts due to their own resentment for humans... Isn't that ironic?
Yes, even the evil me used that and asked those kinds of Servants to come here.
As you can see, all the Servants that moved here went crazy, right?
Mash:
Th-That's not very nice!
Bad Mephisto! You're guilty!
Mephisto:
Hehe, I was just doing my job as real estate agent! The guilty ones are this land, this building, and the mastermind!

  1. When we meet again, it'll be in court.  2. Mastermind?
  Select: When we meet again, it'll be in court.
Mephisto:
I can't believe it... You have a contract with a Servant who was a judge?
Will the jury be full of homunculi? I mean, human trials can be tough, you know?

  Select: Mastermind?
Mephisto:
Oops, I was caught by Mash's beauty and said too much.
Zipping my mouth now.
You will find our yourselves when you go to the upper floors! I think!

Ryougi Shiki:
-
Mephisto:
Oh. Did you smile? Why?
Ryougi Shiki:
It's fun with (Player's Name) around, clown.
When we have fun guests, my tension blows up!
Mephisto:
Is it possible?
I'm always hyper like this, hyahoo!
Ryougi Shiki:
I can see that.
Fine, now we can go upstairs, right?
Let's move forward, (Player's Name).
It seems the real fight starts now.


2nd Floor, Room No.4

Show/Hide Story Chapter

Mephisto:
Hellooo, I'm coming in!
Oohhh! Now this is good! I like 'em charred!
And it's smelly in here! The smell of my kind! The kind that committed a crime, and thus was labeled as a monster...
...then ridiculed and feared by all ! The kind that couldn't escape their punishment even after death!
Elisabeth:
-Hah! Well put!
You're absolutely right, clown.
But why are you here? To give me a housewarming present? Is it because I crawled back to a dark brick room?
Mash:
Elisabeth... No...
I am sure you already know...
Senpai, that's not the Elisabeth you know. She's already a being completely different than her original self...
Elisabeth:
Yes, I am a genuine Innocent Monster!
Clown, you sure brought me something delicious-looking.
Good, you're so considerate!
Let's see... I'm in the mood now!
What was today's party supposed to be?
Oh well, doesn't matter! It's a feast!
I can take off your hands and feet while you're still alive, like shrimps, okay? Burn your organs from the inside like pigs?
Yes! Then I'll kill you!
Let's kill, let's do it, humans!
Mash:
She's coming, Senpai! I know it's Elisabeth, but please fight with everything you've got!

BATTLE

Elisabeth:
Ugh...
That hurts... That hurts... That hurts!
...Stop it!
Don't let me know...
Don't let me know that it hurts this much when my stomach is cut open! Don't force that on me!
So what if you tell me that other people would share the same pain! What do you expect me to do?
Why?! Why am I the only one miserable?!
No matter what I do, why can't I be saved?!
If you say you're humans, wouldn't that make me a more lowly beast?!
Like a lizard, like a lizard, like a lizard... Are you telling me to crawl on the floor and get stepped on and crushed?
I can't stand it.
I will not be able to stand it!
So, please let me kill you. Die already. Please, I beg of you, don't hesitate and KILL ME ALREADY!
Mash:
...Servant Elisabeth has been eliminated.
But... That was...
Mephisto:
Yes, those were always her real feelings!
For me it only sounded like a scream!
But I am sure it was a good outlet for her. Her... pride? Or should I call it dignity?
It must be the result of the education she received as an aristocrat. The ruling class is not allowed to lament.
"Those who stand over others must shoulder suitable responsibility." I am sure that idea was etched onto her.
She picked herself up after falling, trying to aim for the top only to fall again, covered in mud. Yet she picked herself up again.
It looks like she keeps repeating the process as her atonement. Hmmm, kind of like a dragon that keeps collecting shining treasure in its dungeon.
That's why, don't mind the ugly side of her you've just witnessed. Next time you see her...
...just say, "Your horns are pretty cute," and everything will be okay!
Dr. Roman:
...Really? If that was her repressed scream, wouldn't that eventually poison her and turn her into a real monste...
Whoa! What's going on?
Da Vinci:
T-T-Trouble, Romani! I don't know why, but Elisabeth all of a sudden charged into my workshop!
And she started saying, "I just woke up, and somehow I am feeling really refreshed!"
"That's why I made you some snacks to show my appreciation for you! Come eat them! Eat them with gratitude in your heart!"
Oh no, it's melting! Why is the sauce from that plate burning my Mona Lisa?
Help me Romani! I can't deal with her by myself! No...
Why is this happening...
Did she just roast three golems and turn them into a bunch of cookies?
Dr. Roman:
Okay, there's nothing to worry about! Chaldea is as peaceful as ever, (Player's Name)!
Don't worry and keep investigating that apartment. I won't worry about what just happened either and focus on backing you up.

  1. R-Right,  2. If only we had Marugoshi David here...
  Select: R-Right,

  Select: If only we had Marugoshi David here...

Mephisto:
See? You can punch her all you want but she gets back up. That's our Elisabeth!


3rd Floor, Room No.4

Show/Hide Story Chapter

Mash:
Ah... This room seems normal.
The room's resident is...
Boudica:
Hi. Good evening, Mash, (Player's Name).
Welcome to my room.
Are you here to bring me back?
Thank you very much. But-
Mash:
But... What, Boudica?
Are you also...
You can't come in without ringing the bell. As your big sis, I have to scold you.
Mash:
Senpai! Thank goodness!
Boudica hasn't changed!
Reliable, kind, and warm hugs galore!
That's our Boudica!
Boudica:
What? Oh, Mash, is that what you think of me? Someone who hugs at every possible chance?
Anyway. I just made a stew. Will you have some with me, (Player's Name)?

  1. Yes, of course.  2. Eat up, so we can all go home.
  Select: Yes, of course.

  Select: Eat up, so we can all go home.

Mash:
Yes! You are way past your limit, Senpai.
I think it's good for you to replenish some energy.
After we finish our meal, let's go back to Chaldea for the time being. We also have to bring Boudica back-
Boudica:
-Go back?
What are you talking about, Mash?
Don't joke around with me.
Who said I would go back?
I won't go back. There's no place for me to go back to.
That's because... Everything... YOU TOOK EVERYTHING!
We were the king's only family.
My daughter and I were all he had!
That's why I was going to inherit the throne... Yet I was told women have no right to inheritance...
YOU BASTARDS! YOU ROMANS TOOK EVERYTHING FROM ME!
Mash:
Boudica...
Boudica:
I had forgotten. I tried to distract myself with the cause of "saving humanity."
However... This anger. This hatred.
This vengeance...
I won't let anybody get in my way, no matter who it is! In the name of Queen of Victory, I'll make an example of you!

BATTLE

Boudica:
...Ah... What What did I...
I see... I just embarrassed myself...
Queen of Victory... How funny... I've lost every fight that's worth fighting...
Mash:
...Servant Boudica has been eliminated.
There is nothing more in this room, Master.

  1. ...Let's go outside.  2. ...Let's continue our investigation.
  Select: ...Let's go outside.

  Select: ...Let's continue our investigation.

Mash:
Yes. Let's find the cause of all this as soon as possible.
Why is it like this?
Why are they doing it?
Let's move forward to find those answers!


4th Floor, Room No.4

Show/Hide Story Chapter

Mash:
...Senpai, we're almost done investigating the 4th floor. If what happened on the first floor applies to every floor...
Lancer Alter:
Leave. The floor above is crawling with vengeful ghosts.
It's not a place for the living.
Ryougi Shiki:
(Completely stunned by a horse suddenly appearing)
Mash:
Enemy Servant appeared!
Prepare for battle, Master!

  1. I've never seen this Servant.  2. That suspicious helmet... That's the master mind!
  Select: I've never seen this Servant.

  Select: That suspicious helmet... That's the master mind!

Lancer Alter:
...Hum.
Mash:
I am sure! This pressure, this evil magical energy I am sensing...
That's a Servant more chaotic-evil than Mephisto here!
Mephisto:
Hyahoo! Exactly! That there is the evil Dark Knight, the crow that devours the dead.
Lancer Alter:
...No, wait!
Mash:
I get chills just from the gaze beyond that helmet! That Servant is cold-hearted!
Master, be careful...
That is not someone we can talk to!
Mephisto:
Let's defeat that Servant! Oh I can't stop laughing!
Hehhe, kill, let's kill!
Inside that armor is probably a hollow shell like the ghosts outside, or a bony skeleton!
Lancer Alter:
...Hey!
Who are you calling a bony skeleton?
Feast your eyes upon this body! One that belongs to the King of Storms, the protector of the holy lance!
LOOK! CLOSELY!
Ryougi Shiki:
(Completely stunned by her taking off her armor)
Dr. Roman:
Whoa! Time to record this! Where's my recorder!?
Fou:
Fooooooooooou!
Mash:
Wh-What?
Have we met before?

  1. Didn't we fight in that massive cavern before?  2. I don't remember you. I mean those breasts...
  Select: Didn't we fight in that massive cavern before?
Lancer Alter:
...Indeed.
You are very perceptive, (Player's Name).
That was a different aspect of myself, but still the same person.
Your perceptiveness deserves a compliment. You show much promise. However...

  Select: I don't remember you. I mean those breasts...
Lancer Alter:
(Her eyes are saying, "I will kill you if you finish that sentence.")
Fou:
Fo... Fou...

Lancer Alter:
Unlike my armor, my patience is wearing thin. Especially when it comes to humiliation.
You ruffians have witnessed a king's face. Since it has come to that, a fight cannot be avoided.
I shall forgive your disrespect if you survive and prove your bravery to me. If you can't, your soul will be mine.
I am the King of Storms, the Wild Hunt itself! All those who witness my face shall become my servant.
My limbs, my offerings... Cry as you gather under me. Be as crimson as velvet, fit to decorate my hooves.
This tower here is my castle. Here I go, human! Resist your fate with all of your might!
Mash:
Lancer Alter is attacking us after saying all those cool lines!
Master, your orders, please!
You too, Shiki! Be prepared!
Ryougi Shiki:
Ah, yes, thank you, you saved me!
She almost gave me a heart attack!
What the hell is she doing on a horse in an apartment!
That's creepier than any ghosts in this place!

BATTLE

Lancer Alter
...Insolent fool. The eyes that can see death, huh? To think my servants will be disposed of so easily.
If she's with you then you can win. I have no more reasons to stop you.
Mash:
Master, Lancer Alter has lowered her spear.
Unlike the other Servants, maybe she still hasn't mutated?
Mephisto:
Of course she hasn't. I mean, she's just not cut out for it.
How should I put this... The heart that's not afraid to go all out? The courage to pursue desires? Kind of like the class president?
No matter how strong she becomes, she never seems to turn into a cruel queen.
Unless you pour ale into the Holy Grail and have her drink it, she will never become a villain.
Mash:
That's very much like her.
But why is she blocking our way?
Lancer Alter:
...Hmm. I can't let people without light tread into the darkness.
I am here to filter the people who can't resist against the grudge in this place.
But with that woman around, any immortal will face death.
That's why I will allow you to proceed. Besides...
Even with a light, it's common to be eaten by beasts.
I will enjoy watching how far you can go.
Dr. Roman:
Wow, what a scary laugh...
She looks like a cruel queen to me... Cruel enough...
Lancer Alter:
You talk too much, mage. Small talk is strictly prohibited.
Instead of speaking, keep moving!
Fou:
Fou, fou!
Dr. Roman:
Ouch, she scolded me... She's like a class president alright. Now for the necessary questions.
Heroic Spirit of the Holy Spear. Why are you here? Did Mephisto trick you into coming, too?
Lancer Alter:
I don't know about that.
I came of my own free will.
..This is the tower that gathers grudges.
It is the cenotaph that imprisons death.
Originally it should've been drowned in the darkness of history. But someone dug it up, and tried to convert it to a Singularity.
Dr. Roman:
Someone... It's probably the same person who's incinerated humanity. But you said they tried, did they fail?
Lancer Alter:
...This is what you will find out from your investigation.
Indeed, the King's plan ended in miscalculation.
That's probably because he sent the wrong man for the job. As a result, this place did not turn into a Singularity.
Instead, it became a tower that attracts and imprisons Servants, turning them into demons.
There are many types of death that come here.
Someday, it will become the Singularity called "Hell."
Mephisto:
So this is the gate of Hell, right? That means I am most suitable to be your guide!
Lancer Alter:
Now, even if a Hell wasn't created here, one already exists. Adding one or two more holes to it wouldn't be a problem. However...
If you can't overlook that fact, then do whatever you see fit.
This place has no effect on the incineration of humanity.
The mutation of the Servants is the result of their own doing.
Mash:
...That's what she think...
What should we do, Senpai?

  1. Of course, we will go up.  2. We can't abandon our Servants.
  Select: Of course, we will go up.

  Select: We can't abandon our Servants.

Mash:
Roger!
I will go with you, Master!
Ryougi Shiki
...Even if it won't cause any harm to you, you'll still intervene? You sure are a curious one.
Or are you just nosy?
Chaldea is more laid-back than I thought.
Lancer Alter:
That's not it. It is my duty as a king.
An inferior being like you wouldn't understand.
Don't be ridiculous. Even inferior civilians have their path! Especially, when it's related to our own territory.
Oh well... We've already defeated the large chested woman, so let's go ahead (Player's Name).
If we keep looking at those things, it'll mess up our sense of scale! More than enough is too much, you know?
Lancer Alter:
Heh. No one who has more than enough says that. I will accept it as sour grapes.
Ryougi Shiki:
Okay, okay. Ah, how about that Room No. 4? That is your room, right? Can we go inside?
You clean it up everyday, right?
Lancer Alter:
Eh-?
No! Absolutely not! If you go in, you will die! What the hell are you thinking?!


Into the Woods

Show/Hide Story Chapter

Dr. Roman:
Hmm? Are you outside the apartment right now? Seems like you're in the vicinity.
(Player's Name), you're supposed to investigate the building.
What are you doing outsid-
Hmm. The reception's not good here. There's a weird magnetic fiel- and the observation has sto-
Mash:
Senpai, we've lost contact with the Doctor!
Although I don't think it's a mechanical failure, since the spiritrons are unstable around here...
Speaking of which, what are we doing here, Senpai? The Doctor said our range of investigation should be within the apartment building.
Ryougi Shiki:
No, (Player's Name)'s intuition is right.
This is the spot.
Mash:
Shiki?
Ryougi Shiki:
...Someone strange is here. Come out, if you want to hide, you should do something about that murderous aura.
???:
I don't have such bloodlust. All I have is righteous rage.
Mash:
...A-A Servant?
But... I can't see him... I can't see him at all, Master!
He's right in front of me, but all that's there is pure darkness...
He's a little different than the remnants of Servants - Shadow Servants!
Also, not a Saber... Lancer... Archer... He doesn't belong to any of the seven classes!

  1. Is he a Ruler then!?
  Select: Is he a Ruler then!?

???:
Mediation is the furthest thing from what I do. I'll take that as you picking a fight with me.
Who are you all, anyway?
Why would you walk around killing ghosts?
They were unrewarded in life, and their regrets keep them away from death.
The defeated who were abandoned by life, and left behind by death. They chose emptiness over peacefulness.
...Yes, they are nameless, formless monsters. These souls, rejected by even the other side, need peace.
If Hell denies them, then I will create a new Hell. That's why this tower must be filled with their grudges.
That is my faith, and why I exist.
Oh light, do not stand in my way.

Monster Appears

???:
-
-
Fou:
Fou, fou, fooooooou!
Mash:
Fou is more excited than ever!
That ghost doesn't seem to be an ordinary ghost!
Mephisto:
Oh this is not good.
This is not good, Master (Player's Name).
That's an Innocent Monster with super-recovery, super-stamina, and super-skills. The ultimate form of someone who absolutely hates humans.
In the world of Magecraft, there's this thing called something-Murder that can reliably kill any primate species.
And what we have here is a nameless weakling who seems to be reaching that state.
A shame. My dream of seeing Master's destruction is going to end here. You know why, yes?
Because we are all going to die here.
Ryougi Shiki:
You're giving up awfully early, clown.
True, we'll be done here if that's a real Monster of Gaia, but he's just a defective Monster of Alaya.<Br/If our opponent is a ghost who's fallen into madness after death, we'll just have to fight with the same amount of madness.
Mash:
Shiki? Huh? What's going on?
Ryougi Shiki:
Nice to meet you, Mash.
Good evening, (Player's Name).
I was trying my best not to come out, but given who we're fighting, I had no choice.
If you'd like, please use me for a little bit.
Mash:
Y-Yes, thank you very muc-<Br/Wait, that's not it!
Senpai, Shiki's acting weird! The fact that she all of a sudden changed clothes is not the problem...
...It's that she's so graceful, flowers, themselves bloom in shame. She is the embodiment of pure beauty.
Ryougi Shiki:
Oh my. That's what surprises you?
It's refreshing seeing you acting like a girl.
...Really, it's a bit of a shame.
You aren't cut out for battle, Mash.
???:
-
-
Ryougi Shiki:
...Humph. You ruined the mood.
I was starting to feel so sad and warm, too...
It's the fault of the land here that a ghost like this grew so strong.
I just remembered.
Is this where that mage died?

  1. Shiki... Behind you!  2. This happened before.
  Select: Shiki... Behind you!
Ryougi Shiki:
I know.
Now let's finish this!

  Select: This happened before.
Ryougi Shiki:
Yes. I don't remember it, but if you do...
-Hehe. Then it must be fate.
It's strange, but it makes me very happy.

Ryougi Shiki:
You said you wanted to create a Hell here. But that's Lord Enma's jurisdiction.
Even Hell doesn't welcome an amplifier for hateful screams... Your possible dream... Let it disappear into the rift of this world.

BATTLE

Mash:
Enemy ghost eliminated!
We did it! Thank you very much Shi... ki?
Ryougi Shiki:
Oww... I tripped on a tree root. That was lame of me...
Hmm? Oh, you took care of it while I was screwing around. Thanks, (Player's Name), Mash.
Mash:
No, um... That was you, actually.

  1. It's okay. Let's not say anything, Mash.  2. Shiki, you're a magical girl?
  Select: It's okay. Let's not say anything, Mash.
Mash:
...You're right. She seems to have her reasons.
...But that kimono was so beautiful. I wish I could've asked her more questions.

  Select: Shiki, you're a magical girl?
Ryougi Shiki:
Magical girl? What are you talking about? I'm too old to be a "girl" anyway.

Fou:
Fou, foou!
Ryougi Shiki:
Oh, what is it, Fou? You want praise, too? ...Wait, what's that? A key?
Mash:
Seems like it was hidden here.
Good work, Fou. (Pat, pat)
Ryougi Shiki:
...
Mephisto:
Oh my! It seems Shiki wants to touch his fur, too! Go ahead and touch my cape, then!
My cape is an exquisite item made from 100% devil hair!
Come on, touch it!
It's gorgeous!
Ryougi Shiki:
...Fine.
I guess it'll have to do. Let me touch it.
Mephisto:
Oh no! Mephy's in danger!
You just tried to sever my cuticles, didn't you!?
Ryougi Shiki:
Oh, sorry.
I couldn't help myself. That long hair was annoying me.
Mephisto:
You're doing it all wrong! You use scissors to cut hair!
Your knife would shave my entire head bald!
I try very hard to be a dandy gentleman! I'll defend my hair to the death!
Ryougi Shiki:
!!!
It's a fashion statement!?


5th Floor, Room No.4

Show/Hide Story Chapter

Dr. Roman:
...The Spiritron density's highest on this floor. Looks like we're at the center of this apartment.
Dr. Roman:
We've defeated dozens of ghosts so far, but this response is far bigger than any of them.
Dr. Roman:
The core that created this fake Singularity... The soul, or Spirit Origin if you will, of this area.
Dr. Roman:
And it's close.
Be careful, Eldritch.
Mash:
Understood.
...We're almost at the end of the hallway.
Mash:
That room seems to be the last one...
Shiki, are you picking up anything.
Ryougi Shiki:
Listen, the only thing I'm picking up is cold shivers. I can't detect magical energy like Eldritch.
Ryougi Shiki:
It's more like intuition for me.
That, and how much death there is.
Mash:
Whether there's death, huh?
Mash:
You haven't talked about it,
but what does it feel like to see death?
Ryougi Shiki:
It's creepy, basically. I told you before, what I see is a thing's lifespan.
Ryougi Shiki:
...Everything has a seam.
Ryougi Shiki:
Those seams usually look like lines.
Run a knife down them and that part will “die.”
Ryougi Shiki:
If you have time, you can ask a mage you know for the more detailed theory.
Ryougi Shiki:
In my case, I happened to know this weird mage. She told me all kinds of stuff I didn't want to know.
Ryougi Shiki:
...Well, I'll probably never see her again. But maybe you have someone who knows her?
Dr. Roman:
I don't know. Chaldea's got a lot of funds, but we're basically isolated in the mountains.
Dr. Roman:
Anyway, were you born with those eyes? Have you been seeing that scary view since you were born?
Ryougi Shiki:
I was born with them, but they didn't awaken until I got into an accident.
Ryougi Shiki:
I basically died once.
When I woke up, the whole world had changed.
Ryougi Shiki:
...Tch. Why are we talking about me, anwvay?
Look, we're here. This is the center of the building.
Mephisto:
Hehehe! At last we're here!
Yes, yes, this is it! This is it!
Mephisto:
I remember this place!
I was first summoned here!
Mash:
...So there's something here that's creating this fake
Singularity, right?
Mephisto:
Of course!
I was first summoned here!
Mash:
...So there's something here that's creating this fake Singularity, right?
Mephisto:
Of course!
It wouldn't make sense if there wasn't!
Mephisto:
Who could it be? I'm so excited! I'm so nervous, everyone! Aren't you?
Mash:
—Yes.
It's not appropriate to say this, but I'm interested.
Mash:
Thanks to you, I'm not as nervous now, Mephisto.

  1. You're a pro at livening things up, Mephisto.  2. It was a little bit noisy though,
  Select: You're a pro at livening things up, Mephisto.

  Select: It was a little bit noisy though,

Mephisto:
Hehehe! Of course! I'm talking as much as usual for your sake, Eldritch!
Dr. Roman:
That means he's just acting like his normal self!
Ryougi Shiki:
So you won't change your ways for anything, huh?
You really do seem to be having fun, though.
Mephisto:
Of course I am.
Mephisto:
I'm with a Master who'll hang out with a devil like me, even if they do think I'm a little weird!
Mephisto:
How could this not be fun!
Mephisto:
This is so fun! I'm so happy! It's really like a dream come true!
Ryougi Shiki:
...Yeah.
You're being honest for once, huh Scissors?
Ryougi Shiki:
Okay. Let's go inside.
Are you ready, Eldritch?

  1. Of course.
  Select: Of course.

Dr. Roman:
What is this room!? There's no boundary lines!
Dr. Roman:
It's like Scathach's Land of Shadows!
If we don't stop this thing—
Evil Mephisto:
Welcome, everyone!
Have you been satisfied so far?
Mash:
-Huh?
Good Mephisto:
Of course we have!
Hello, me! Thanks for watching the Boundary!
Fou:
Fou, foou!
Mash:
Another set of Mephistos!?
Even though we got rid of the evil one!?
Good Mephisto:
What are you saying, lady Mash?
I'll ask you not to underestimate me.
Good Mephisto:
I am a devil!
I've only got a single good heart within me—
Good Mephisto:
But I've got far more than one or two hearts of evil! I've got so many you couldn't count them all!
Mash:
That's surprisingly convincing!
I have no come back to that, Master!

  1. It's Mephisto. What can you do?  2. We just have to keep punching him until he reforms.
  Select: It's Mephisto. What can you do?

  Select: We just have to keep punching him until he reforms.

Good Mephisto:
Yes, perfect!
I wanted to see you go around defeating all the evil mes.
Good Mephisto:
That's why I came here in the first place!
Good Mephisto:
Come, come! Go right ahead! Behind that evil me is a Greater Ghost.
Good Mephisto:
That's the keystone of this Bounded Field! The Great Avici Hell, which draws spirits of the dead here and turns them into a pillar!
Ryougi Shiki:
...It's huge. How hard is it gonna be for that to die?
There's so many lines I could never cut them all!
Evil Mephisto:
Hehehe! Of course it‘s hard!
It's a copy-paste of over a hundred million deaths!
Evil Mephisto:
And you're going to join the other ghosts in it! But before that—
Evil Mephisto:
There's something I don't quite understand. I'm talking about you, Eldritch.
Evil Mephisto:
Say, why are you doing all of this? This isn't your problem at all.
Evil Mephisto:
It's true that Servants were trapped here.
But they mutated of their own will.
Evil Mephisto:
They all wanted to be that way. There was no need for you to go to considerable length to come and save them.
Evil Mephisto:
This apartment is located in a different dimension, yes.
But it's only a fake Singularity. It's safe to ignore.
Evil Mephisto:
Even if humanity's foundations were restored, this place would simply sit outside the world and quietly gather hatred and pain.
Evil Mephisto:
Looking at this sort of hell is my job, which is why I'm here working.
Evil Mephisto:
But why are you getting involved?
No one asked you. And this isn't revenge.
Evil Mephisto:
There's nothing to be gained for you by solving this problem!
Ryougi Shiki:
——
Mash:
Well...

  1. Everyone looks like they're suffering.  2. A hobby. Just like you.
  Select: Everyone looks like they're suffering.

  Select: A hobby. Just like you.

Mash:
—Right! It doesn't matter what we gain! It felt like we needed to solve this!
Mash:
That's the kind of person Senpai is!
Someone who can't look away from pain and sadness.
I was scared in the Command Room...
Ryougi Shiki:
Everyone looks like they're suffering, huh? And I guess “everyone” includes the ghosts.
Evil Mephisto:
—SIGH. Then I guess I'll have no choice but to kill you.
Evil Mephisto:
I am a devil. It's no fun if someone does something just because they want to.
Evil Mephisto:
I can't tempt them with anything. Which means I can't trade with them!
Evil Mephisto:
And in the face of someone like that, you know... I would have no choice but to truly submit!
Evil Mephisto:
And if I was loyal like that, I wouldn't be a devil anymore, would I?
Evil Mephisto:
I am here as myself.
Evil Mephisto:
As long as I'm needed as the devil Mephisto Pheles... It would be rude to my wonderful Master not to do my job!
 Good Mephisto:
Ooh, that's me for you!
A devil more devilish than any devil!
Good Mephisto:
But as the me on Master's side, this is a problem. I don't think I can beat that Greater Ghost.
Good Mephisto:
The evil devil me wants to be defeated by my Master.
The good devil me just wants to survive and doesn't care about anyone else.
Good Mephisto:
What is this? Mixing both me together would make me look like the strongest, wouldn't it!?
Ryougi Shiki:
Idiot. Just shut up and work with us.
It's the only way you'll survive.
Ryougi Shiki:
Let's do it, Mash, Scissors.
Eldritch's answer persuaded me.
Ryougi Shiki:
I'd been wondering the whole time, too.
Ryougi Shiki:
Eldritch has a place to call home.
Why get involved in someone else's hell?
 Ryougi Shiki:
But I guess I know the answer now.
Ryougi Shiki:
This one is the same kind of idiot as Mikiya! So there's no sense in thinking about it!
Ryougi Shiki:
Idiots never listen to you, after all!
They just make everyone's lives difficult!
Mash:
Right... right! I agree, Shiki!
That's our Master!
Ryougi Shiki:
Then let's finish this thing!
Ryougi Shiki:
I'm thinking that I want to go to this Chaldea of yours!

BATTLE

Dr. Roman:
The massive ghost has vanished!
Now the fake Singularity is done for!
Ryougi Shiki:
Bye now, lying devil.
Time for you to head back home!
Evil Mephisto:
Ayye—yeee!
It's so sharp!
Evil Mephisto:
So this is a death line!?
It's so sharp, huh miss?
Evil Mephisto:
It's a clean cut! I didn't feel anything and there's no blood! But there's terror and pleasure!
Evil Mephisto:
Oh, I have to disappear!
I can't take it anymore!
Mash:
The enemy Servant and massive ghost have been eliminated.
—We won, Master.

  1. Good work, everyone.
  Select: Good work, everyone.

Good Mephisto:
Hehe. Hehehehe!
Good Mephisto:
Good work! Good work, huh?
An airhead until the end, you are!
Good Mephisto:
But that's unforgettable, unattainable, and I want to die!
Good work! And farewell!
Good Mephisto:
Though... When you're a devil like me you don't do farewells like this often!
Mash:
Good Mephisto!?
W-Why are you starting to disappear?
Good Mephisto:
Why? That's a strange question.
Killing that me means killing this me as well!
Good Mephisto:
Listen, if you defeat an evil heart, the good heart isn't going to somehow survive, okay?
Good Mephisto:
I am me because of my evil.
And I am me because of my good.
Good Mephisto:
You are who you are because of your strengths.
I am who I am because of my weaknesses.
Good Mephisto:
It's best to disappear together. That is what we are.
Good Mephisto:
Because—if only one of us were to survive, that would be a sad thing.
Good Mephisto:
They say a man can't live by himself!
Although, I am a devil!
Mash:
——
Ryougi Shiki:
...Yeah.
Did you have fun, Scissors?
Mephisto:
Yes, I did! The best days of my devilish life! Um, yes.
Enough that I'm going to miss it.
Mephisto:
Anyway, I will be off!
I'll be joining the ghosts!

  1. No. I'll see you soon Mebphisto Pheles.  2. I'll summon you soon.
  Select: No. I'll see you soon Mebphisto Pheles.

  Select: I'll summon you soon.

Mephisto:
Hehehe. Hehehehe.
That's wrong. That's a different me. Not this me.
Mephisto:
I'm not human.
In fact, I was never human at all—
probably won't remember you!
Mephisto:
That's what a devil is! Either they destroy the one they contract with, or that one will destroy them!
Mephisto:
Nothing remains. For if it did, it would weigh on me. I wouldn't be able to have fun deceiving you, Master!
Mephisto:
Goodbye, everyone——
The devil Mephisto Pheles will be leaving now!
Mephisto:
Splendid, splendid work, Eldritch!
You have done well to awaken from the sleep of death!
Dr. Roman:
...
Mash:
...Heroic Spirit Mephisto Pheles is gone.
It's over, Shiki, Senpai.
Ryougi Shiki:
Over?
Well, I guess it is.
Ryougi Shiki:
Once that massive ghost is gone, this apartment building will go back to being abandoned.
Ryougi Shiki:
When the time comes, there'll be nothing left. Like what Scissors said, that's life.
Mash:
Yes. It is a little lonely, though.
Ryougi Shiki:
Okay. Let's head back to this Chaldea place, Eldritch.
Ryougi Shiki:
No, should I call you Master?
That's the rule for Servants, right?
Fou:
Fou!?
Dr. Roman:
Huh? You're coming too?
Ryougi Shiki:
What, am I not welcome? I've helped you this far.
...Not that it was my main goal.
Ryougi Shiki:
I was troubled too.
yougi Shiki:
I thought I'd wake up if I found the cause, but it's not happening. Instead, I feel more alert than ever.
Ryougi Shiki:
This place is going to disappear soon.
So Chaldea's the only place I can go.
Ryougi Shiki:
If I work for you as a Servant, then you can give me lodgings, food, and clothing, right?
Mash:
It's true...We can't just leave her.
Senpai?

  1. Welcome to Chaldea.  2. Thanks for coming. Ryougi.
  Select: Welcome to Chaldea.

  Select: Thanks for coming. Ryougi.

Mash:
Right!
Thanks for working with us, Shiki!
Ryougi Shiki:
Thanks.
Okay, let's get going.
Ryougi Shiki:
If you need ghosts, zombies, or anything else weird taken out, I'm the one. Use me as you like.
Ryougi Shiki:
Thanks, Eldritch.
Ryougi Shiki:
I won't go as far as Scissors, but I'll follow you to the gates of Hell.
Dr. Roman:
Damn... Another weirdo, huh?
Dr. Roman:
But it's good that Chaldea will be livelier.
I'll get her a room ready quickly.
Dr. Roman:
Eldritch, good work. I can see the fake Singularity response beginning to weaken.
Dr. Roman:
The massive ghost maintaining it vanished.
That apartment building will vanish soon.
Dr. Roman:
The Servants who were trapped will come back when the building disappears.
Dr. Roman:
If you forgot anything, take care of it.
Chaldea always needs more resources.
Dr. Roman
But don't spend too much time there!
I'll be waiting for you in the Command Room!

Tesla:
Invigorating. Absolutely invigorating, and most comfortable! Reading a book under the gleam of electric light... How dazzling!
My unstoppable intelligence is essentially skyrocketing at an eel-lectrifying rate! All because of electricity!
...What, you didn't get that? I mentioned eels because, well, they're god-like fish that can generate electricity... Well, never mind.
In any case, let's try increasing the brightness even further. This is all 500W can produce. How would it be if we doubled that?
It's evident that my intelligence will likely reach divine levels, and soon I won't even have to read anymore!
Hahahahaha! Now then, allow me to show you-

Oh, I guess he's not actually angry.
Lu Bu:

"There is no parent that wouldn't get angry watching their daughter cry" is what he said! S-Sorry!
Ryougi Shiki:
I see. So the complaints we've been getting lately ordering us to do something about the frequent power outages is due to this.
Mash:
Shiki? What are you looking at?
Is that... a notepad?
Ryougi Shiki:
In any case, let's take care of this. We'll talk afterward.

Dr. Roman:

She's saying in order to conserve electricity, I'm unpluggin any piece of equipment of unknown function that I find."

Fou:

Mash:
By the way, Shiki...
What was that memo earlier?
Ryougi Shiki:
Oh, this? This is the request I got. It says, "Please resolve the cause of the power outages," so...
All right, that takes care of that one. Next up is "Please evict the bad tenant who refuses to pay rent."
Mash:
Um... I hope I'm guessing wrong, but are these possibly... complaints from all the neighbors here?
Ryougi Shiki:
Oh, didn't I mention that?
Based on the information I have...
...they're complaints requesting the removal of Servants who are living in this apartment building illegally.
That's why I've been chasing out Servants. Here, look.
This building is owned by the Ryougi Family, you see.
Mash:
Shiki, you're a landlord?!
And this is basically-
Ryougi Shiki:
Yes. I came here on behalf of my family to collect everyone's rent.
In that case, let's switch gears from here on out, Mash, Player.

Well, either is fine. As always, leave the loot at the door and get out. I'll spare your life, at least.

Leonidas:
Raaaarrgh-!
Raaaaaargh-!
Fou:
Fooou?!
Mash:
It's Leonidas this time?!
But that can't be!
The Servants we've met so far in this apartment building have all, undoubtedly, had dangerous sides to them.
But Leonidas shouldn't have any kind of dark side like that!
I mean... I mean!
Leonidas never hated others nor lost sight of himself.
He always protected the rear. He is the Guardian of the Thermopylae...
I respect him!
He was ranked as the best shield-holding Heroic Spirit in Chaldea this season!
There are no bad people among the shield-holding Heroic Spirits!
Leonidas:
Raaaaaaarrgh-!
Die! Die-!
Dr. Roman:
Mash, I understand how you feel, but calm down! No matter how you look at him, he's clearly been altered somehow!
There's no way that mule-headed, pardon, I mean, that earnest, steady King Leonidas would run around swinging his sword and shouting, "Die!"
Like the other Servants we've met here his darkness has been drawn out by this apartment complex!
Mash:
Doctor! Get out!
Lenoidas doesn't have a dark side!
If he did, there's no way he could have inspired 300 soldiers to stand up against an army of over 100,000 enemies!
He's a very solemn man, and the Guardian of Thermopylae! The valorious and indomitable King Leonidas harbors no evil for fear in his heart!
Leonidas:
Aaaauughh, I'm scared of ghosts-!
I'm scared-! I'm scared-!
I've failed. I came here to rescue my comrades and became trapped in this hell! Now I'm so frightened I can't take a single step outside this room!
I can face any physical enemy, be it dragon, or dog-like man! But not ghosts! For some reason, I just can't handle ghosts!
And yet, I slash and slashm but there are ghosts and more ghosts! Are they without number?! What?! New ghosts?!
They take the forms of my Master and Lady Mash!
Curse you! How dare you strike me where I am weak?!
What fearsome wit you have, Ghost!
Arrgh, how my blood boils at this outrage! So reprehensible, it makes the very hair upon my head smolder!
Raaarrgh! Aid me, valorous men of Sparta!
Here I come! Thermopylae Enomoti... waaaahh!
Dr. Roman:

  Select: I've seen this... in Ikebukuro!

Cú Chulainn:
Oh? You know of my work, kid!?
Then I definitely hafta treat you nice!

Mash:
Still... I can't believe we're seeing Cú Chulainn here, Senpai.
Like Leonidas, I don't think he's a Heroic Spirit that should be here in this apartment.
Cú Chulainn:
Mm? What, you know my True Name?
Then there is no need to hide my face either.
There. I was suffocating under that hood.
Also far too formal when I am gambling.
So sit, honored guests.
Which game do you desire?
Cards? Dice? Roulette?
Or a rousing game of backgammon?
Mash:
...Gambling... D-don't tell me...
Shiki! What's the complaint from the neighborhood residents?!
Ryougi Shiki:
They appear to be bawling and with no clothes on," it says.
Well, typical apartment gambling.
No problem. That's a matter that requires an arrest.
Mash:
Cú Chulainn, don't tell me you're...
Cú Chulainn:
I'm afraid so. I had too much free time, so my hobby became extreme and I began running a casino ☆
I mean, I am Caster class, after all. When I hold this staff, manipulating the dice is just too easy...
Dr. Roman:
That's illegal gambling! You're using your precious Druid abilites to load some dice?!

  1. This is like in Ikebukuro...  2. He looked so cool in the commercial...
  Select: This is like in Ikebukuro...

  Select: He looked so cool in the commercial...

Cú Chulainn:
Ah... Oh, that? To be honest, that was the cause...
It is not as if I settled here of my own volition. I got into a quarrel with my mentor.
I can't leave just yet. When I told her, "Act your age," I was hit with the full force of her fury.
I tell you, I haven't mixed it up with my mentor like that since I was her disciple in the Land of Shadows!
There was also Fergus, Ferdia, and I believe 20 others.
My mentor announced it out of the blue. As a final test.
"All of you, slay me right now. If you cannot, you will die.
For I am going to slaughter the lot of you."
That's what she said, I suppose it was to weed out the weaker warriors, but I wish she hadn't been that serious.

  1. Tell me about it. I hate her Stun.  2. So, did you win then?
  Select: Tell me about it. I hate her Stun.
Cú Chulainn:
Oh, you've fought her before somewhere?! What a misfortune!

  Select: So, did you win then?
Cú Chulainn:
If we hadn't, neither Uncle Fergus, Ferdia nor I would have been around to become Heroic Spirit.
It took all of us.
Normally, she would have beaten us.
But the thing is, afterwards...
She easily wiped us out...
Don't tell anyone I told you this, understand?
That woman hides one side of her true character.
"You have done well. You fools have finally become half-fledged warriors. But... I still have one stage of transformation left."
That's what she said before sending us flying.
I'm telling you, we were like scraps of paper.
...And this time was like a reenactment of that.
She laid waste to my Wicker Man.

Cú Chulainn:
Long story short, I lost to my mentor and was imprisoned here.
She told me to think about what I did for a while.
Treating me like the monkey in that story...
Mash:
You mean China's famous story of the Five Elements Mountain, with the Monkey King?
I sympathize with your situation, Cú Chulainn, but I think you're also to blame.
You should never casually bring up a woman's age.
Especially if she cares about what people think of her.
Cú Chulainn:
That is a fine warning!
One that'll stick, as it was given by a true beauty!
What do you say we set aside the gambling and turn to another pursuit? My bedroom door is wide open to young beauties!
Fou:
Kyuu, fouuu!
???:
Mm. My thoughts exactly, Fou. "A lazy warrior should have it cut off and cauterized by yon pike."
Cú Chulainn:
Yikes!
Mash:
Y-you're Mistress Scáthach?!

I am not the strongest, most beautiful warrior of Celtic legend, but only a nameless Kunoichi who skulks in the darkness.

Long story short, basically because of my curse, even this beautiful one bedroom apartment...

""Oh my, cute Okita here has gathered a whole lot of Friend Points today."
"Speaking of Friend Points, how many do you have Nob... Oh..."
She will pick a fight with me like that! Besides, during GUDAGUDA Honnoji, all of you people were praising me left and right like
"Nobbu is so cute! Nobbus is the best! Nobbuuuuuu!"
Now what? The even is finished so you're done with me?
You only need Okita now?
Mash:
Yes! She was a great help to both Senpai and myself!
Although I do feel bad for Mistress Scáthach a little bit.
Nobunaga:
Et tu, Mash? Fine, in that case I will wait no longer!
I have turned this apartment into a different dimension, and thus creating a new event by Nobbu, to Nobbu, for Nobbu!
This new event will be titled "the Garden of Nobbu"!

Farewell, Mas... I mean, Boobie Servant.

Enough of that, I said.

Don't forget to exchange the Ascension materials...
Otherwise you'll get stuck at an awkard level... Well... I suppose... that's... inevitable...

I have nothing against you personally, but I have a quota.
A quota of Sabers to fight!
Ah, no, my mistake. That's actually karma. It's my karma.
That's cool. I'm a character ruled by fate.

All right, I apologize. I had the wrong person!
Can you just let me go home?
Ryougi Shiki:
My! You're not only courageous, but refined.
This makes me want to play with you even more.
Would you do me the favor of a battle, traveler? Despite my appearance, I'm good at slashing the sign of a cross.

Althought Mephisto brought the Servants here, he had nothing to do with their so-called mutations.

Ryougi Shiki:
It's well constructed. It reminds me of the roof on the Fujou Building.

As if it would end. My grudge shall never fade away, ever.
I suppose this tower will disappear.
It will return to nothingness by your hands.
But my work is not done yet. The island of despair. The tower of incarceration. The castle of treasures.
Until I remember it all, I shall never give up.

I have confirmed the presence of an enemy Servant.
That is a Heroic Spirit who should not exist in this world!
???:
-Keh.
Hahahahahahahahahaha!
A Heroic Spirit who should not exist in this world, you say! You should have your tongue burned out for such lies, Demi-Servant!
Eventually you will know Heroic Spirits and spirits of the dead are the same thing. We are all curses fallen into the shadow of this world.
Mash:
Is that... The massive ghost from before!?
So there was another one!
???:
No, we simply did not disappear. Curses don't disappear.
This is a system of curses that is already complete. This is the debt to humanity that the King of Mages has thrust upon me.
As long as others exist, there will be both resentment and killing. The hatred of those sacrificed are my nourishment.
This is eternal. A miserable hell that goes on forever.
The pious would likely worship me as a god of the greatest depths-
An indestructible phenomenon immune to death.
Mash:
...It has far more magical energy than last time, Master!
It really does... seem to increase its resentment every time you defeat it.
If it keeps increasing at this rate-
we will not be able to kill that monster-
Ryougi Shiki:
-We can kill it.
If it's alive, we will kill it.
???:
-Oh really? Are you capable of destroying an indestructible phenomenon?
Ryougi Shiki:
Even if something exists for millions of years, it's only the false impression of eteranl youth that humans project on it.
But al things posess the seed of destruction. There is nothing in the universe that is immutable for eternity.
Get lost, vengeful demon.
No matter how long or great a life is-
As long as it has an end, I won't hesitate to kill even a god!
???:
Hah!
Very well then. Show me, blasphemer!
See if you can deny the evil in human beings!
Prove that there is nothing that can exist for eternity!

BATTLE

Mash:
The giant enemy ghost has disappeared!
All that's left is that Servant... Ah.
The Servant is fleeing!
But, in the direction of-!
Ryougi Shiki:
The edge of the roof... does he intend to get away by jumping off!? Not a smart way to escape!
Mash:
Shiki!? If you charge with that momentum, both of you will...
Dr. Roman:
Do you intend to kill him even if you end up plummeting to your own death? No, you have to stop now!
The Spirit reaction shows that the Servant is not actually there!
That's just a shadow! Ryougi, you're the only one that's going to fall!
With your Mystic Eyes, you might be ale to kill the enemy's true body even if it's a shadow. But-
If you chase him, you're going to die too!
You finally made it Chaldea, and now you want to die with someone whose face you don't even know!?

  1. Ryougi, stop!  2. Stay, Shiki!
  Select: Ryougi, stop!
Ryougi Shiki:
!

  Select: Stay, Shiki!
Ryougi Shiki:
...

Dr. Roman:
Oh dear... She just barely stopped in time. You called out in just the nick of time, (Player's Name).
Ryougi Shiki:
...Hmph. I can't just ignore the Master's orders.
You're a lucky man.
???:
...You're not going to pursue me?
If you were ready to put your life on the line, I would have shown no hesitation in accepting my fate.
Ryougi Shiki:
I know. I had a feeling you were that kind of guy.
???:
Ugh!
Mash:
A throwing knife!
Shiki, were you hiding another knife!?
Ryougi Shiki:
Yeah. In my sash. Women know a thing or two about concealed weapons.
???:
Ugh... So those eyes of yours... They'll even "kill" a shadow reflected on the water's surface.
You percieve even inanimate things as living. Even phantoms are not immune to death. It seems my work ends here.
Dr. Roman:
The Spiritron reaction is fading...
No, wait! The dark Servant!
Why did you create this kind of place!?
Who asked you to do this!?
???:
It's obvious. Surely you understand.
It's the one that you regard as your enemy.
He boasted that this tower could become a new Singularity. However-
My goal differs from his.
My life is fueled by my thirst for vengeance. He differs from me on a fundamental level.
Why should I lend a hand to someone who holds no grudge? That's why I rejected his offer.
True to my nature, I gave other Servants the opportunity to take revenge.
"Oh Tiger, howl with all the fury of a tiger.
The time has come to devour your prey."
Dr. Roman:
He held no grudge... What does that mean? I'm confused... Well then, what is the point of incinerating mankind's history?
???:
Why don't you find the answer yourselves?
I have no interest in the matter.
Mash:
...Master.
The enemy Servant will disappear.

  1. Wait!  2. Please, just tell me who you are!
  Select: Wait!

  Select: Please, just tell me who you are!

???:
I'm not obligated to say anything.
...Hmph. But if you insist..
The only thing I have to say is this.
"Attendre et espérer..." Wait and hope.
Dr. Roman:
...It is finally over. The mastermind who gathering all the ghosts is finally gone.
This apartment will return to its incinerated history... The long night will finally end.
Mash:
That's good news, but...
We still have no idea who that Servant was.
He made it sound like he was our enemy...
I wonder if we will have to fight again someday?
Ryougi Shiki:
Who knows? One victory might be all that's needed for that type of guy. He might turn out to be an unepectedly trustworthy ally.
Mash:
Really?
Ryougi Shiki:
That's right. Mash, do you know why human beings take revenge on others?
Mash:
N-No. I can't quite recall at the moment the motivation behind the act of revenge...
Ryougi Shiki:
It's simple. A human being holds a grudge when they have been betrayed by someone they love. If the other person is someone they don't care about, they would be indifferent.
So... maybe that guy in black actually loves humanity on a fundamental level?
The one born from hatred speaks of love, and the one born from love speaks of hatred.
That's the type of guy he is, I'm sure.
Dr. Roman:
Yes. Perhaps we'll encounter him again someday. For now, let's hope that we have solved this case once and for all.

  1. I'm glad we were able to solve this case!  2. Dr. Roman, don't tell me it was you!
  Select: I'm glad we were able to solve this case!
Fou:
Fou, foou!
Ryougi Shiki:
Yeah. The investigation did take a lot of legwork. Your perseverance exceede my expectations.
Come to my house if you lose your job as a Master.
We... have a detective, so we'll hire you as an assistant.

  Select: Dr. Roman, don't tell me it was you!
Dr. Roman:
Hmm, I don't know about that. If I can remote control someone from here, I think I can be a lot more useful to you guys.

Dr. Roman:
Anyway, good work, everyone. You were all able to persevere and continue the search until the end.
There's nothing left to do now, and the distortion in the coordinates should eventually disappear.
I'll be waiting for all of you in Chaldea.
The case of Ogawa Heim has come to a close!
