|Episode 25 - Hikaru and Nova in the Dream|
Clef and the others are watching the Magic Knights through a magic monitor, and they realize the creature that Alcyone is riding isn't from Cephiro.
Fuu saves Umi from falling out of the sky with her wind magic, and then Alcyone attacks Hikaru.
Eagle's crew is watching all of this and is wondering what's going on. The younger guy gets excited when he learns from Eagle that the people piloting these Rune-Gods are girls... He hopes there's a short-haired girl that is even shorter than him. Eagle mentions that the people of Cephiro can look a lot younger than they are...
Since Cephiro is a world of will... really strong-willed people can change how old they look. I remember Lantis saying that...They start talking about everything they learned about Cephiro from Lantis, and Eagle's reason for coming here.
Cephiro. A country led to peace by Pillars of each generation, who upheld all order... with their powers of prayer.
To me, Cephiro was like a setting for fairy tales. I knew it existed, but everything about it seemed like part of a story. It never seemed real at all.
My mission is to seize control of this country's Pillar system.
It's really not my style to invade a country. But my life has been in your hands since I decided to stick by your side.
Umi and Fuu return to help out Hikaru, and then the battle stops and Hikaru tries to convince Alcyone to come to Clef's Castle and add use her will to help save Cephiro from destruction.
But can you at least stay in the castle with them? That castle is made of people's will... Caldina and the others told us that. Mages, sorcerers, summoners... The castle is made by people with exceptionally strong wills... Alcyone, you can join them and...But Alcyone seems possessed now... or maybe she's just always been this evil. The big shadowy figure from Hikaru's dream shows up behind Alcyone, and starts talking through Alcyone's mouth.
Fools. On this path that leads only to despair, you still try to fight to the end. The Pillar of Cephiro is now gone. Ruin is the only thing left for this world.
Soon. Soon everything will die. Everything will then become mine.
Then Hikaru daydreams and sees this long-pink-haired woman who looks just like her, and she introduces herself as Nova.
I was born just for you, Hikaru...
Soon... We'll meet soon...
After Hikaru snaps out of it, Alcyone just decides to disappear for some reason. Clef and the others are even more confused now after seeing Alcyone turn demonic.
That evil light surrounding Alcyone... What was that...What was that aura filled with hatred and ill feelings?
The Magic Knights resume going to the Autozam ship to talk to Eagle like they originally planned... meanwhile Clef has a telepathic conversation with Lantis.
Did you feel that evil aura earlier?
Did you figure out what it was?
No. I tried to trace it, but it got away.
Even you, one with powers equal that of your elder brother, Zagato, who became high priest of Cephiro, could not track it.
The one who taught my brother and I magic... was you, Master Mage Clef. My magic was far from my brother's level. You think too highly of me.
You possess enough magic to equal a high priest... and are versed enough in the sword to become a swordmaster. You were the only magic swordsman here in Cephiro. Though I never thought that you would ever leave Cephiro.
If the Pillar of Cephiro had not faded away... I never would have returned to this land.
Does that mean... you came back by order of those in Autozam?
Eagle steps out in his FTO mech again to greet the Magic Knights. The short guy is surprised to find out from his analysis that these Rune-Gods are living things and have no technology in them... The girls all step out of their Rune-Gods and Eagle steps out of his FTO, and they clarify what each others' intentions are. Eagle says he wants to take control of Cephiro's Pillar system, a system which makes anything possible through the pillar's will... and the Magic Knights say they want to protect Cephiro until a new pillar emerges, and then figure out from there what to do.
Eagle declares them his enemy... and just then, some girl shouts at them from across the sky. A huge red dragon shows up, and inside is this girl on a throne, who claims that she will become the next pillar of Cephiro.
