The Revival of Sacred EclipseEdit

At Marcafal Kingdom's Guernica, Lux and Aeril are continuing their journey for Avalon while combating numerous Abyss that were infesting the Old Castle's first floor until they find a small room for their break[Notes 1][Notes 2]. Whilst Hayes is leading her Abyss Army to halt the advance of the White Ridge Knights'[Notes 3], Listelka and Fugil meanwhile are supervising Lux and Aeril and keeping tracks on their updates via Mishis and Dragon Marauders' information. Before Lux even asks her a question, Aeril reminds him that she can only answer his question that is considered as a tolerable scope before giving him permission to speak. After thinking for a while, Lux asks Aeril why the Abyss attacked even the Lords, to which Aeril reluctantly replies that someone has overwrote the Abyss's directives that caused them to gone berserk and attack anyone indiscriminately[Notes 4]. This prompts Lux to wonder if his ancestor was responsible for the Abyss "malfunction", though Aeril is unable to confirm it [Notes 5] as she believe someone else aside from the Royal Arcadia Empire is operating the Avalon's defensive system.

Philuffy and Celestia vs MishisEdit

Suddenly, Lux and Aeril hears a strange ominous yet sinister voices behind the room which the latter affirms it belongs to the Sacred Eclipse. Shocked to see its revival[Notes 6][Notes 7], Aeril immediately tells Lux to escape but the door is smashed before he could response and the violet wire chain is about to be snapped. Fortunately, Lux is narrowly rescued by Phi who is riding her Typhon, followed by Celes's arrival via her Lindwurm.

Nevertheless, Lux is surprised to reunite with Phi and Celes and asks them how did they get here. Phi replies that because she smelt his scent while Celes told him that Lisha and Krulcifer let them passed through the entrance while distracting Hayes[Notes 8]. Anyhow, Celes tells Phi to take Lux out from the Old Castle while she dealing with a pursuer but before Lux could even explain to his friends, Aeril tells Phi and Celes to put him down but Phi refuses, forcing Aeril to attack Phi and then attacking Phi. Phi retaliates by activating Typhon's shield only to be stunned to see Aeril's attack crack the shield with the speed faster than light; in fact, the attack is so fast that not even Lux is able to see it.

That attack prompts Celes to realize the Drag-Ride Aeril is riding is actually the Divine Drag Ride, which Aeril dubs it as Zahhak. Without any hesitation, Celes activates Lindwurm's Divine Gate and challenges Aeril to show her strength and resolve, while Phi attempt to retrieve Lux. Aeril, however, refuses to see Lux being taken away so she plays her Horn Flute to summon the Abyss Horde to distract them. While slaying the incoming Abyss Horde, Celes uses Divine Gate to sneak attack Aeril only to see a huge wall pushing her down; meanwhile, Phi is under attack by Gargoyles and Chimeras consecutively while suffering her headache from Aeril's Horn Flute. Lux tries to save them but Aeril stops him as she coldly warns him about his Wedge's function should he disobey his order and abandoning Phi and Celes is the only way to save them. Unwilling to see his classmates' struggle, Lux reluctantly complies and continue his mission while praying for their safety.

Traveling into the Old Castle's deeper section via the opened gates, Lux, upon his realization that Aeril was the driver of Zahhak, recalling the event where he fought against Rosa during the Campus Festival, leaving him to assume that she (under the name Carol) has been watching him all the time. Initially fell irritated by his question, Aeril still explains to Lux about Zahhak's powers-the Brain HackWicked-that is able to interfere surrounding people's mind while erasing their specific memories and perception. Nevertheless, the two find a room to take a break before proceeding their mission for Avalon but eventually confronting both Celes and Phi who miraculously survive their ordeal [Notes 9] and catch up with them. Regardless, Aeril will not let Phi and Celes get close to Lux.

Worries that the duel will only bring harm than good to both sides[Notes 10], Luz pleas Phi and Celes to withdraw as he explains his situation in regards to his second collar; only to see his plea backfires very horribly as Phi and Celes becoming even more determined to free him from the said collar. Their confrontation, however, is interrupted by Listelka who orders Aeril to continue the invasion onto Avalon as she has dispatched Mishis to deal with Phi. In response, Aeril immediately swings her Breath Whip that creating an opening, grabbing Lux and rush through the underground in order to find any portal before Mishis's arrival[Notes 11] while shaking off Celes and Phi's pursuit. During their escape, Lux notices a large hall-which Aeril claims that it is one of many Abyss Plants in Avalon-and the two enter hall so they can hide from Celes and Phi who are preoccupied by Abyss's presence.

During their exploration inside the Abyss Plant, Aeril explains to Lux everything from Listelka's motive in utilizing the Old Castle for her goals to the Divine Drag-Ride manufacturing machine as well as Mishis being Royal Arcadia Empire's champion[Notes 12]. The empty atmosphere of the room further risen Lux's suspicions as they didn't encounter Abyss despite they have just entered their plant. As they explore further, however, they are horrified to see rotting Abyss's corpses are everywhere while meeting Mishis who is responsible for the Abyss massacre. Mishis , however, urges both Aeril and Lux to stay back as she detects 2 enemies heading towards them, whom later revealed as none other than Phi and Celes.

Celes and Phi vs. Mishis.

The duel begins with Phi launching Typhon's Pile Anchor onto Mishis but misses as the latter dodges it, though, in reality, the anchor is actually attacking the pillar. However, Mishis is unimpressed as she instantly sees through the surprise attack from both opponents. Nevertheless Phi and Celis proceed to attack Mishis via pincer attack that seemly beating the maid, but Mishis swings her Halberd that destroys everything throws at her whilst blocking Celes's attack via Azi Dahaka’s full power barrier without suffering a single scratch; which worries both Lux and Aeril, especially the latter who is extremely concerned about the battle will endangering both Phi and Celes.

As retaliation, Mishis then uses Ali Dahaka's Avesta to copy Lindwurm's abilities to perform Lightning Flash and attack both Celes and Phi but they retaliate via combined attacks of Celes's Flash and Phi's Biting Burst. Just as Lux assumes victory belongs to Celes and Phi, he sees Aeril's lips trembled until he sees the unexpected outcome of Celes and Phi's defeat because their attack is actually deflected by Mishis's Reflector. Mishis further dashing towards the weaken Celes and Phi but Celes barely able to defend herself to her lance, only to witness Mishis uses Divine Gate-another ability she copied from Lindwurm-to teleport herself towards Phi and ambushes her instead; though Phi reacts quickly by kicking Mishis immediately. "Admired" by the display of her opponents[Notes 13], Mishis opts to finish the duel with her Missing Faith-an ability she copied from Typhon-to defeat them as her Halberd strikes their Force Core, resulting from their defeat.

In spite of his astonishment to see Mishis' power, Lux still thinking about rescuing Phi and Celes before Mishis could kill them even if his Wedge will kill him as the result. Suddenly, Aeril raises her voice to stop Mishis but the maid replies that she needs to finish off the Royal Arcadia Empire's threat immediately, with Listelka intervenes by asserting her recognition towards Lux merely her sister's servant and refuses to let her tolerance and mercy got the better of her. Their conversation, however, is interrupted by something triggering a trap inside the Abyss Plant that shoot fire arrows at Aeril, injuring her. To make their situation even worse, they confront Sacred Eclipse[Notes 14] that prompts Aeril to order Mishis to keep Sacred Eclipse busy and buying both she and Lux escape for the Old Castle while stopping Lux from saving Phi and Celes. Lisha and Krulcifer later arrive at the scene but the latter tells the princess to retrieve their classmate and fall back after she observing the situation. Initially unwilling to give up on saving Lux, Lisha reluctantly complies to Krulcifer's advice and bring her defeated classmate away. Lux, on the other hand, feels regret to see his reunion with his friends turns out this way but reluctantly follows Aeril while Mishis is fighting off the rampaging Sacred Eclipse.

    • Aeril, after her treachery against Hayes, Fugil, and Listelka during the Invasion of Avalon, is now becoming a prisoner in Atismata Kingdom but becoming more friendlier with Lux and his friends. Although this somewhat led to Lisha's dismay because of her envy towards the relationship between Lux and Aeril.
    • Despite Royal Arcadia Empire's defeat after Hayes' defeat and Aeril's betrayal, both Listelka and Fugil had to retreat but refuse to give up their goal, making them as a bigger threat to the world alongside with the Sacred Eclipse.
      • Even though she somewhat survive from her predicament, Hayes's injuries from Lux and Aeril's attack are so severe that not even Elixir can heal her wound. In fact, this prompts Listelka to end her sister's misery by having Fugil to kill her in her stead.

    • Although the World Alliance is victorious against the retreating Royal Arcadia Empire, it is considered as a pyrrhic as most of them saving Lux's allies and the Paladin Dragons were fallen victim to Listelka's scheme and Fugil's Bahamut.

NotesEdit

  1. The Royal Arcadia Empire's plan on invading Avalon is set within 3 days after Airi and others are leaving the Royal Officer Academy but, with the remaining Paladins are taken hostages at the chapel while being watched by Listelka via Mishis's information, they had no choice but to keep advancing.
  2. Despite Aeril also somewhat proficient in using the Horn Flute, she and Lux still need to keep their guard up as there were some Abyss that are resistant to the Horn Flute's sounds due to their lack of sense of hearing
  3. With their respective masters were abducted, both Lolotte (Magialca's Aide) and Zweigbergk (Singlen's Aide) had to put their differences aside.
  4. According to her, the Abyss were supposed to repel the intruders outside the Royal Arcadia Empire members.
  5. Unlike Hayes who hated Lux due to his ancestor's treachery, Aeril is the only Royal Arcadia Empire didn't hate Lux despite her earlier betrayal as Carol.
  6. According to Aeril's hunch, the remnants of the Dragon Marauders remains active despite losing their leader and, now working under Listelka, they are supervising Lux and Aeril on her behalf; yet her suspicions was that not even the Dragon Marauders themselves were able to reach here let along tampering Avalon's system, which prompted Aeril to become even more suspicious .
  7. Despite Aeril also somewhat proficient in using the Horn Flute, she and Lux still need to keep their guard up as there were some Abyss who didn't have any hearing senses.
  8. According to Celes, they should've arrived to Avalon a day before yesterday but something had change their course which shorten their time. While Lisha and others where distracting Hayes, Phi and Celes meanwhile barely able to slip through the Old Castle's defense line and dashed through the corridor. Their determination on rescuing Lux was part of Listelka's worst miscalculations.
  9. It was later revealed that both Celes and Phi barely overcome their ordeal via the combination of Divine Gate and Biting Flare that made them slip ahead from their enemies. Then, both Celes and Phi escaped via Divine Gate that transferring them to Lux's location.
  10. As far as Lux is concerned, this ins't the best time for the duel due to the location's complications and that alone will resulted in two outcome: Aeril will never complete her mission and both Phi and Celes might be hurt should the battle take place.
  11. As far as Aeril is concerned, because Listelka was controlling some parts of Avalon while Mishis is the champion to Royal Acadia Empire, she worries that something terrible will befall onto them if Mishis arrive to their direction; be it part of Listelka's whim or even part of a trap to kill Celes and Phi.
  12. While the Lords are at their advantages because of their resurrection abilities that preventing their deaths, Mishis is often at Listelka's side a she is tasked to protect her at all times. The fact that she is dispatched for her mission signifying something will ruin her plot in regaining Royal Arcadia Empire's power.
  13. According to Mishis's belief, a mere human shouldn't surpassing the Lord's/Key's Supervisor in terms of strength or even ability of using the Drag Ride. Celis and Phi's display of prowess makes her to eliminate them quickly before they becoming a treat to the Royal Arcadia Empire.
  14. In fact, due to the threat of the Sacred Abyss, Listelka refers to stay at the Heaven Palace instead.
