Welcome back to Save File Plays Legend of Legaia! Last time, we destroyed Cort, and we destroyed the last Mist Generator, thus finally destroying the world of the Mist! Unfortunately, we also destroyed Conkram, and by proxy, Noa’s mother and father. But they knew it would happen. Now, there’s nothing left to do but wrap up the rest of the game, so let’s get it over with, shall we?
MUSIC: Rim Elm
Val: I know I can’t even walk like I used to, but your eyes are like my eyes. Your ears, like my ears. You’ve really grown up, Vahn! I’m so proud of you!
: It was this Genesis Tree that brought us together. We are so lucky we met each other! But there are still a couple things that bother me.
: Such as?
: Songi! He’s still alive! We defeated Cort and Juggernaut at the Absolute Fortress Mist Generator. But nobody knows where Songi disappeared to. Maybe I’m worrying too much, but I don’t think everything’s over yet.
MUSIC: Mei’s Theme
Maya: I’m so glad you came here to see me! Now, let me get a good look at your face. Such a sturdy-looking face! This is the face of a full-grown man, the hero who saved the world!
Maya: Oh, I almost forgot. I have to go somewhere now. Mei is inside. Don’t be bashful. Stay awhile!
Mei: Well, just like you’ve gotten stronger, I’ve grown up a little. The world has changed now that the Mist is gone. Actually, I’ve started a tailoring business. I have to earn a living you know, hee hee. I may not look it, but I have quite a reputation as a skilled tailor now.
Oooooh, Vahn swooping in for the kill! (Still way more smooth than me, at least)
Actually, he isn’t really kissing her. He’s just got his arm on her shoulder. It’s had to tell with old graphics, haha.
Mei: Mother! Welcome home! Well, how did it go? What did the shopkeeper say?
Maya: Actually, he gave me a good price. He said he can always use clothes of such good quality.
Mei: Vahn! Did you hear that? Vahn, I’m going to work hard and open up my own store with Mother. I hope you’ll be rooting for me.
Maya: Listen to this child. She’s absorbed in her work. And it’s all thanks to you, Vahn. And it’s not just Mei! Everyone in Rim Elm is full of life now! Everyone is enjoying life and being alive!
That seems pretty nice! Unfortunately, I think I know someone who is probably nowhere near this happy. But she probably really needs someone to talk to.
MUSIC: Soren Sad Song
; So why… I just don’t understand. Vahn, why do the people I love have to die? My mother, father… and my brother too. I don’t believe Terra anymore. Terra lied to me, so I don’t like her anymore. Ever since then, Terra won’t answer me at all. I’m sad! I don’t want to hate Terra! I want to believe her! I don’t believe Terra anymore! I feel like I hate her now! That’s why I feel so sad and lonely.
Village Elder: What do you want? You want to see them?
Child: You have a visitor!
: A visitor? Someone came to see us?
Child: Uh huh!
Village Elder: He must be here to offer you his blessing.
Child: Oh. He said his name was… Songi.
MUSIC: Songi’s Theme
: Songi, did you come here to do something bad?
Songi: Ha ha ha! That’s a fine how do you do! I came here to congratulate you!
: Songi! Have you changed your ways?
Songi: What? Have I changed my ways? I’m still me. I’ve always been true to myself.
I LOVE that line. Songi may be a bad guy, but at least he’s an honest bad guy. He holds a grudge against Gala, and never lets it go, and he also never lies about what his motivations are. Songi exists purely for Songi. Everything he does is for himself. He has no misgivings about what he’s doing. No cookie-cutter villainy here.
: Songi… I know you’re too proud to apologize, but…
: Yeah! Say you’re sorry! Songi! You’d better say you’re sorry right now!
Songi: Ha ha ha ha ha! Apologize? You’re telling me to apologize? Now that’s funny! Ha ha ha! Well, I see the idiot brigade still hasn’t master thinking! Gala, take a look!
Songi: Don’t worry, they’re not dead. I held back. After all, if they die, they won’t be food for Juggernaut anymore.
: Juggernaut? How could that be? Juggernaut died with Cort!
Songi: Hello, Gala! You’re not thinking! Juggernaut is an enhanced Seru! A Sim-Seru! The power of Seru comes out when it combines with a human! Who is this Seru combined with?
: No! M-My brother?
Songi: Correct! Say, you do have some brains, eh? Listen closely. Juggernaut’s almost here.
: Songi! It’s me you resent, right? Then kill me! Leave the people of Rim Elm out of this! Don’t harm them!
Songi: Gala, you don’t understand. You don’t matter at all to me anymore. For I am the ruler of a new world, the world of the Mist!
: Songi, your depravity never ceases to amaze me.
MUSIC: Juggernaut Approaches
Ozma: Gala, it’s too late to run away!
Terra: Noa, concentrate! Focus!
MUSIC: World Map After Juggernaut
Songi: Ha ha ha! How pathetic! This is only the beginning! Juggernaut’ll grow until he swallows the whole human world!
: Songi! How can you do this? You call yourself human?
Songi: Gala, you are as clueless as ever! I am no ordinary human! Don’t you get it, Gala? I am the ruler! And as ruler, I cannot trouble myself with you! I must go and conquer another world.
: Another world? No, not the Seru-kai!
Songi: Ha ha ha! That’s right! I’ll never have to see you again. Farewell! Have fun… dying, that is!
: Why? Why won’t the Genesis Tree protect us?
Terra: Noa… the Genesis Tree lost its powers because of the Seru-kai.
Ozma: If Songi conquers the Seru-kai, my life will end, and all hope will be lost.
: Tell me, Ozma! How can we go after Songi? How can we get to the Seru-kai?
Ozma: There is only one way to the Seru-kai, and it’s in Uru Mais.
: So that’s why Juggernaut invaded Uru Mais!
Terra: The only way to save Rim Elm and the world is to go to the Seru-kai.
: Vahn, we have to go to Uru Mais now!
: Vahn, to save Rim Elm, we have to go to Uru Mais!
Did you REALLY think it was over? Oh no, this game just had to continue on in one of the most horrifying ways ever.
NEXT TIME: Uru Mais and the Seru-kai!
