Game Script

Ode of Life Bestowing - Stellar Fulcrum
Seed Crystal: Fools! You truly believe you can escape your destiny!?

Seed Crystal: This is the will of the crystal! That which gives life, may take it away.

Seed Crystal: Now look upon the destruction of your beloved Vana'diel!

Aldo: The will...of the crystal!?

Aldo: Giver of life? Hah!

Aldo: Don't make me laugh! You're nothing but a twisted shadow!

Aldo: A perverse echo born of my sister's nightmare... A nightmare whose time has long since passed.

Seed Crystal: Silence!

Seed Crystal: You know naught of which you speak. The destiny which you would deny was prophesied long before your world came to be.

Seed Crystal: The door to paradise shall open...

Seed Crystal: And Vana'diel shall return to the darkness from which it was born.

Seed Crystal: The tides of fate will not be turned by the likes of you.

Aldo: Damn!

Seed Crystal: This...this is...

Seed Crystal: Impossible! The ancient echo resounds through time and space... The Seed Crystal radiates the primordial light of creation!

Seed Crystal: They cannot be extinguished by the likes of--

Seed Crystal: But how...? the power of the anitphon?

Seed Crystal: This is the lifeforce... of Altana's children...?

As the legend began, so too does it end...
with a stone.

In ages past, the Dawn Goddess,
stricken with grief, sought to restore life
to her fallen beloved by bestowing unto him
the light of the true crystal.

The crystal shattered, and in the bodies of
countless mortals the Twilight God was reborn.

The crystal's holy light extinguished evermore,
Paradise was no longer, and a new world of
mortals was birthed in its stead.

That world was called Vana'diel.

Mathilde: Aldo...?

Mathilde: Could it truly be you, Aldo? My brother...

Mathilde: Aldo, can you hear me? Please... Open your eyes...

Aldo: Emeline...

Mathilde: Aldo... But this is only a dream, isn't it?

Mathilde: A fleeting illusion that will vanish without a trace before I wake to the light of a new day.

Mathilde: I will carry on with my other life, with no memory of who I once was... With no memory of you, nor what you mean to me...

Mathilde: Why must this be, Aldo? I don't want to leave you again.

Aldo: Nor do I, Emeline. And yet, even if we never meet again as brother and sister..

Aldo: Just the knowledge that you still live, under the same sun and stars in this world of Vana'diel...

Aldo: Somehow, that's enough.

Mathilde: Farewell...Aldo...

And so it was that this chapter of
the legend drew to a close...
But even now, in a far corner of the world...
Another, yet untold chapter of the legend...
Another verse of the ancient song is being woven...
By a child of the past--
one who has not abandoned her dream...
But as one bright star shines through the clouds at night...
And as one song rings clear above the roar of beasts...
A vast ocean of glittering crystals illuminates
the midnight sky, a cosmic wind carrying their
light through time and space.
Shine forth, star of hope!
Let your song ring out across all of Vana'diel!

And then one day,
in a time to come...
What was split asunder will once more become whole,
complete and inseparable for all eternity.
That world was called Vana'diel.
Never to be forgotten...
