The Port at Balfonheim

Saccio Lane

Rikken

Blast the sea! Blast the waves! Blast it all!
I don’t believe he’s gone… He’s Reddas…
How could he die?

Elza

Hadn’t you noticed? He’d been searching for a place to die all along.

Raz

Lord Reddas weren’t the sort of man to run away from his problems by dyin’! He weren’t! How could he abandon this town!?

Elza

You’d have him regret passing? You’d have him suffer and wail for enternity…?

Raz

Th-That’s not what I meant… No, if he’s gone, then he should rest in peace. Gods know, he deserves it.

Elza

Then let him. If you’ve time to mourn and curse him, then you’ve certainly time too carry on what he started.
If you don’t wish an eternity of regret on him, then let’s do our part here, and know he’s watching over us…satisfied.

Rikken

Satisfied? Reddas? We’d be lucky if we earned a “not disappointed” from him! But I suppose everything depends on us now.

Elza

Us…and Vaan’s crew.

Raz

Arr? Since when have you trusted that lot with more than swabbing the deck?

Elza

I wasn’t blind. I saw the faith that Reddas had in them. I’m sure they’ll discover what it is they need to do in short time.
Speaking of which, did you tell them about our guest?

Raz

They should be meetin’ up at the manse as we speak… Who was that odd fellow anyway…?
(Squawk)

Vaan

Al-Cid?

Al-Cid

We let ourselves inside.
The situation is one demanding some haste, you understand.

Vaan

How did you know where we were?

Al-Cid

My little birds, they tell me many, many things.
My Lady, the war begins now.

Ashe

Then you were unsuccessful in stopping the Rozarrian fleet?

Al-Cid

I used a variety of methods.
All went according to plan until it came time to request withdrawal of our most devoted generals.
In their enthusiasm for war, our great military leaders went behind my back…
Straight to Marquis Ondore’s Resistance.

Ashe

The Resistance?

Al-Cid

During training, a division of the Resistance ignored their orders and disappeared.
They were next found exchanging broadsides with the Imperials over Old Nabradia.

Basch

Why would they go there?
They were asking to be found!

Al-Cid

You misunderstand. Those ships most surely belonged to a Rozarrian division.
They may have joined Ondore’s resistance forces as patriots, or even mercenaries…but they are regulars of the Rozarrian army under direct command of our war-pavilion.
This fifth column has invaded Imperial airspace and provoked a response.
Unable to abandon them, his Excellency the Marquis was obliged to give his main fleet the order to attack.
And the battleground…is Dalmasca.

Balthier

Should this fight drag on Rozarria will enter the fray, the defense of Dalmasca as their excuse…and we will have a war between empires.

Al-Cid

Correct. They will bide their time – waiting to strike until the Empire has spent itself against the Marquis.
But Vayne – he will crush them and the Marquis both between his hands.

Basch

Vayne holds the Dusk Shard no longer.
His advantage is lost.

Al-Cid

Vayne has advantages enough.
He stands on higher ground, and my birds tell me he has awoken something quite large.
Bahamut, Lord of the Sky.
There was a stirring in the Mist, in the direction of (near) Ridorana, I’m told. Bahamut awoken soon after this.

Fran

It is the Mist that came before the Cryst was undone. It breathed life into this Bahamut.
If Reddas had not stopped it when he did, how much more Mist might it have drunk?
All went according to Doctor Cid’s designs.

Balthier

Yes, the man’s last great accomplishment, I fear.
And so it falls to me to put an end to the thing.

Ashe

Vayne commands Bahamut himself?

Al-Cid

He comes to Rabanastre.
Then I will defend Dalmasca and stop this Bahamut.
This is my charge –

Vaan

That’s our charge, actually.

Penelo

It’s our home.
It belongs to us all.

Al-Cid

And my charge is to hinder and delay this Rozarrian invasion for as long as is possible.
I will do what I can.
Ah, yes…
When this unpleasantness is done, you must come to Rozarria.
I will take you to the Ambervale of Clan Margrace.
Such things I will show you!
Until then, I will be waithing.

Rikken

Lo, Vaan! Word from the Resistance! The Imperial sky fortress Bahamut is on the attack! This…this could be bad…
We have no chance of fighting it from the ground.
No, the only way to fight the Bahamut is to go to it…by airship!

Rabanastran A

This wind…
What could it be?

Rabanastran B

A tornado? It can’t be!

Rabanastran C

It’s headed right for us!

Imperial A

Make your target the Resistance heavy cruiser.

Vayne

Our dear Cid?
Slain by his son.
A common tale of late.

Imperial B

Firing solution complete.
Sighting is good!

Imperial C

Release valves open!
The nethicite is at critical!

Imperial D

Main and auxiliary show clear!

Larsa

Put an end to this!
They have already surrendered!

Vayne

Let us make of this an offering.
One he might see even now.
Venat, what say you?

Imperial A

The main battery stands ready!

Larsa

I beg you!

Vayne

Fire.

Larsa

Why this…

Vayne

Once they see that there can be no surrender, the resistance (they) must need come at us with all they have.
We will answer their attack head-on and destroy them.
Before the eyes of all Rabanastre.

Larsa

If you do this, the people will only grow to hate you the more.

Vayne

And should I pardon them, they will only rise up yet again.

Larsa

I do not believe they would.
In co-operation lies our hope.
You are mistaken.
You are wrong, brother.

Vayne

And if I am? You had best find the strength you need to correct me then.

Imperial A

Ships sighted ahead! A score or more!
The Resistance fleet, my lord!

Vayne

Hear this!
Today we write the first page of a new history: our history.
Each of you must play his part.
Put down this rebellion.
For Archadia! We fight!

Imperials

For Archadia!

Resistant

All ships, prepare to fire on my command.
???
We’ve got a destroyer stretching our line.

Ondore

May fortune favor us all.

Imperial A

This is Orthros leader:
Keep your formations tight.
Give them a warm welcome.

Imperial B

Many and more to choose from, ripe for the taking!

Resistant A

Remember your training and we’ll make it!

Resistant B

Icebrand, with me!

Resistant

All ships clear!

Ondore

Give word to the cannons.
Make ready and fire!

Resistant

We have a clean line!

Ondore

Prepare the second volley!
Be quick!
By the gods…

Resistant

The Carrier Galuf-Val…
She’s lost.

Unknown ship from abaft!

Ondore

Could it be?

Ashe

Uncle, it is I!
I’m crossing to the Bahamut to stop Vayne!

Ondore

What are you saying?
You are too rash!
Your duties come after the battle is over!

Ashe

If we allow them to destroy us here, there will be no after.
You must assist our charge.

Ondore

Stop.
You must pull back!
Stop the Strahl!

Larsa?

Hold it!
I mean, w-wait!
This is Larsa Solidor!
I’m going in with her!
So…we’re fine!
I got the Princess covered!

Ondore

Larsa Solidor?
So you hold him as a hostage?

Ashe

No, Uncle.
He will fight with us against Vayne!

Larsa

Leave it to us!

Ondore

Understood.
Our fate is in your hands.

Vaan

Yes!

Penelo

“I got the Princess covered”?

He doesn't talk like that.

Vaan

Larsa’d say that.

Really?

Balthier

We’re relying on you for fire support.
Give them something to think about.
We’ll pick our moment and make our move!
Quite the welcome!
Careful!

Fran

One follows!

Balthier

Ah, you want to dance!
Then let’s dance!

Fran

A new partner.

Balthier

It’s not easy being this popular, you know.
There it is.

Vaan

Come on! Come on!

Sky Fortress Bahamut

Antechamber

Balthier

Vayne will be in the fortress’s command tower.
I saw something of the like on our way in here.
Right above our heads.

Ashe

We need not fight all the Empire to win.
If we can get to Vayne, we can put an end to this war.

Vaan

Let’s get going then.
Find Vayne, wherever he’s perched, and knock him off.

Imperial

They hide in the sun!

Imperial

Counter-air battery destroyed!
???
Enemy squadrons still incoming!

What are you waiting for?
Fire! Fire!

Zargabaath

Is this their worst?

Resistant

Evasive hard aport!

Ondore

The line is drawn.

Fran

The Resistance fights their battle well.
We dare not fail them.
We dare not falter.

Vaan

Stop worrying.
We just have to clean up here, and then Ashe’ll be the queen.

Penelo

It’s kind of hard to believe.
I can’t even imagine trying to rule a whole kingdom.

Basch

A queen might always “run away” with the help of a sky pirate looking to raise his bounty ???.

Balthier

I doubt our queen would need the help of any sky pirates.

Ashe

Do you really think me as strong as all that?

Vaan

Who said anything about strong?
You’ll make it.
You got good friends.

Even if you're not...we came together, we'll go together.

Basch

So you have lived.

Gabranth

I am Judge Magister.
Even in disgrace.
My just reward for aiding the Empire that destroyed my homeland.

Basch

Gabranth. Do not blame yourself anymore.

Gabranth

You confound me, Brother!
You failed Landis, you failed Dalmasca…all you were to protect.
Yet you still hold on to your honor.
How?

Basch

I had someone more important to defend.
And defend her I have.
How is it that you have survived?
Is it not because you defend Lord Larsa?

Gabranth

Silence!
All was stripped from me!
Only hatred for the brother who fled our homeland remains mine.
Tell me: why do you forsake that which you must hold most precious?

Basch

I do as I must, brother.
Or is that not answer enough?

Gabranth

Futile, Basch! Long have I walked in Hatred’s company.
As long as I can curse your name I shall not be defeated!

Basch

Then come!
Wield your hatred and crush me.
I welcome it!

Gabranth

Have you your fill of this?

Basch

I would ask you the same.
Let this end, Noah.

Gabranth

I’ve no right to be called by that name.

Basch

Then live.
And reclaim it.

Vayne

I bid you welcome to my sky fortress, the Bahamut.
I must apologize for my delay in welcoming you aboard my ship.
Permit me to ask:
Who are you?
An angel of vengeance?
Or perchance a saint of salvation?

Ashe

I am simply myself.
No more and no less.
And I want only to be free.

Vayne

Such a woman is not fit to bear the burden of fule.
Weep for Dalmasca, for She is lost.
Observe well, Larsa.
Watch and mark you the suffering of one who must rule, yet lacks the power.

Larsa

No.
No, Brother.
I will not.
Though I lack your power, I will still persist.

Vayne

Bold words, child.

Gabranth

Lord Larsa…

Vayne

Your lives are forfeit, and your insurgence with them. Dalmasca will again know order.
For good and all, I shall bring your futile attempts at rebellion to an end.

Larsa

Lord Brother!

Vaan

Larsa!

Ashe

Manufacted nethicite!

sword of House Solidor

Vayne

Behold the power left me by our fallen friend.
Gabranth, you will defend my brother.
He will have much need in the hell to follow.

Gabranth

Yes, I will defend Lord Larsa!

Vayne

The hound strays.
Treason bears a price.

Gabranth

One I gladly pay.

Vayne

Ivalice will know a new Dynast-King, and Man will keep his own history!
The tyranny of the gods is ended!
We are their puppets no more!
The freedom for which we have longed is at hand!

Gabranth

Even a stray has pride!
Here I pay my debt.

Vayne

Burn in hell, Gabranth!

Gabranth

Basch, tell me.
He is a good master?

Basch

Aye.

Vayne

Venat!
I have failed us both.
I am no Dynast-King.
You must find another.
One who might realize your ambitions.

Entrust your dream in another person.

Venat

They are fulfilled beyond your knowing.
The Cryst is sundered, age of Stones complete.
From the undying ones the world is freed.

The world no longer has any need for the immortal ones.
You shall not tread this path alone.
Together we gao.
Come.

Vayne

Won’t Cid be eager to learn what has happened here.
History begins anew.

 

Balthier

Well?
Can we fly?

Fran

No fuel goes to the glossair engines.

Balthier

Damn!
Vann, you’re in charge.
I’m checking the engine room.

Vaan

Right.

Balthier

Fran, with me!

Ashe

Look! Bahamut’s glossair rings are stopping!

Balthier

Vaan!
As soon as the Strahl’s rings move, you take off. Understood?
You can fly her, Vaan.
Just do it like I told you.

Vaan

Don’t worry.

Fran

Penelo, watch for interference from Bahamut’s skystone.
The Strahl’s a fickle girl.
You keep her working for us.

Penelo

I’ll see what I can do.

Gabranth

Basch.
Look after Larsa, will you?
If House Solidor should crumble, the Empire would fail, and civil war would take us all.

Basch

I understand.

Gabranth

Lord Larsa is our last hope.

Penelo

Vaan, the power’s back!
We can go!

Vaan

Right! Let’s go!
Grab onto something!

Resistant

Sir!
It’s the Strahl!
She’s left Bahamut.
She’s moving away!

Ondore

The Strahl!
They made it!
At last.
The Bahamut has fallen!
The final test is upon us.
The Judges shall rule us on more!
Main cannon on the Alexander!

Gabranth?

This is Judge Magister Gabranth.
All quarters cease fire!
I repeat: All units of the Archadian army, hold your fire!
The battle is over!
As of this moment, we have signed a cease-fire with Ashelia B’nargin Dalmasca…Her Royal Majesty.

Larsa

Attention.
This is Larsa Ferrinas Solidor.
My brother Vayne has died with honor in battle.
The Imperial Fleet is now under my command!

Resistant

Sir! Your orders, sir?

Ashe

This is Ashelia Dalmasca.

Ondore

The Lady Ashe!
Thank the gods you live!

Ashe

I confirm what Judge Magister Gabranth and Larsa Solidor have said here.
Please, stand down your attack.
The war is over.
Ivalice looks to the horizon.
A new day has dawned.
We are free!

Penelo

Look Vaan, the Bahamut!

Resistant

A message from the Alexander!

Ondore

Take it.

Resistant

Sir.

Zargabaath

This is Judge Zargabaath, captain of the Alexander, flagship of the 12th Dalmascan Fleet the Arcadian army.
I address all ships in Rabanastre’s airspace.
The Bahamut must not be allowed to fall on the city of Rabanastre!
We are preparing to ram her!
Do not interfere!

Ondore

Madness!

Zargabaath

Should she fall, the paling will not hold, and all Rabanastre will be obliterated!
All ships concentrate your fire on the Alexander’s remains once Bahamut is clear of the city.

Balthier

Hasty, aren’t they. I think it’s a little early to be throwing away our lives just yet.

Vaan

Balthier?
Wait, Balthier,
Where are you!?

Balthier

Ah, Vaan!
Sounds like you made it out okay!
The Strahl’s a fine airship, eh?

Ondore

What does he think he’s doing?
Balthier!

Balthier

Marquis! Stop that fool Judge on the Alexander for me, would you?
Just getting somewhere with these glossair rings. Almost done!
Don’t want him ramming me before I fix them, do we?

Ashe

Balthier! Do you understand exactly what it is you’re doing?

Balthier

Princess!
No need to worry.
I hope you haven’t forgotten my role in this little story.
I’m the leading man.
You know what they say about the leading man?
He never dies.
Let’s fly!
Fran! Power to the glossair rings.
Fran?
Do I have to do everything around here?

Ashe

Listen to me, Balthier.
Get out of Bahamut immediately!
Please, Balthier!
You mustn’t die!
Please, Balthier.
Come back.

Fran

I’d say you’re in more of a supporting role.

Balthier

Fran, please.
Vaan, the Strahl’s in your hands!
You’d better take care of her, you hear?
If there’s one scratch on her when I get back –

Vaan

Roger that.
We’ll be waiting for you.

Ashe

Balthier…
