They made it to the Dessert
Ann: Yeah, what is it?
Morgana: I think this whole Journey is getting long.
Reynn: Well, the word "Journey"--- it used to literally mean "bad stuff happening to you."
Morgana: Thanks for the uplifting bit of Trivia.
Tama: Wait!￼ I the-hear some activity over that-the-way. I think we're not far from a place to the-rest! Let's go take the-five over there!
They head off to the Caravan
Reynn: Excuse me. Would you mind if we rested here a bit?
Person: Sure! You can stay as long as you like. Hey, look at you guys. You'll get baked alive out here dressed up like that. Wait! Here, some sunscreen. Help Yourself.
Futaba: How much is it?
Person: It's free. Go crazy!
They put on some Sunscreen
Lann: Sunscreen force fields... Applied and activated!
Ryuji: You are so weird.
Haru: Thank you so much.
They went ahead
Lann: Now that I'm all lathered up, I can smell them.
Makoto: Smell what?
Lann: Mirages and Shadow, over there.
Tama: Over the-where? To the North?
They went to the Phantom Sand
Yusuke: Despite the harsh desert climate, Mirages and Shadow are full of life.
Ann: When did we step into a Documentary?￼
Then three Worm Monsters appeared
Lann: Oh boy! How many of them are wriggling around down there?
Akira: Well, whatever the answer is... Don't say it!
They are fighting it and it doesn't work
???: Are you trying to get yourself killed?!
They heard a Voice and they saw another giant Monster, And then Girl who was riding a Motorcycle with a another girl named Mitsuru and Lightning
Mitsuru: Could you go any faster?
Lightning: I'm trying.
Then some Powers from the Mirage Keepers and Persona Users give them some speed
Lightning: What's just--
Mitsuru: Forget it, we'll use it.
They made it and they defeated the Monster
Akira: We don't know who you are, but thank you.
Mitsuru: Save it for later. The longee we all stay out here, the shorter we'll live.
Lightning: Come on, before they came back.
Lann: Dude, what?
Then more are coming to rise up the ground
They retreat and rest up
Mitsuru: Surprising. We never thought the Jiants from the Hills would have so much trouble crossing a dessert.
Lann: Really, so you heard about us?
Morgana: Why are you so happy, Lann? We do not want Fame.
Person: Here these will warm you up.
Yusuke: Thank you.
They give them drinks
They explained everything about it
Lightning: Keys from the Prophecy? Interesting... That explain some things.
Ryuji: So you've heard of them? I don't suppose you can tell us more?
Mitsuru: There are four: Earth, fire, water and shadow, if I remember correctly.
Ryuji: Say you won't happen to know where they are, right?
Ann: Is something wrong?
Lightning: Oh, sorry. Me and Mitsuru didn't exactly where the keys might've hidden.￼ But then--
Person: I might know something about it.
Person: The Key of Earth... Lies in the "cradle of mako's light." The key of tides... That one lies in the "Temple in the deep." The key of shadows... Lies in the "land of naught but night."
Ann: Wow, that sounds nice and specific.
Makoto: Wait. Is that Crimson Prophecy's missing verse?
Person: Yes. You know much, traveler.
Yusuke: Wait, what is the "missing verse"?￼
Mitsuru: They say that part of the original Prophecy was omitted from subsequent copies.
Lightning: However, to be able to read that---
Person: Oh, I haven't read it myself. I heard it from someone who has.
Morgana: And Bahamut's castle? You, uh... Probably don't know that much.
Akira: How could she know where that is?
Person: I don't know... But there's a whisper.
Person: This is merely a rumour, but... they say the castle you seek-- the domain of the Herald's and their king--- lies past the Crystal Tower, beyond the path of the gods.
Reynn: Heralds... So then, the king who founded Bahamut.
Lann: Cool! So, all we have to do is get those four keys, and then haul hiney over to the Crystal Tower, am I right?
Akira: Yeah, from the sound of it.
Then they look sleepy
Ryuji: (Yawn) All the reassuring info is making me sleepy.
Reynn: (Yawn) Don't Yawn, Ryuji. You're making us yawning too.
Morgana: What do you say we just... turn in here for the day...
They went to sleep
Then something shaking and woke them up
Morgana: Huh? What the?
Futaba: What's going on?
They saw a Castle raising
Ryuji: The chain!
Lann: The Federation... what are they doing here?
They can't get up
Lightning: We were careless... the drinks... last night.￼
Reynn: What?! They were---
Lann: Dude, my body... I can't barely...
Akira: Guys, I don't think I can't move.
Morgana: Me too, something's wrong.
Then Edgar appeared
Edgar: No heroics. Please.
The guard surrounded them, Lightning and Mitsuru is going to attack him, but then Dark Anat ￼and Dark Prometheus hit her and knock them unconscious
Edgar: Hey now. That is certainly no way cornus to treat a lady. Or as I frequently say, the churl never gets the girl.
Dark Anat: Heh. Weirdo.
Makoto: Who are these two?
Futaba: Must be the Federation. Who else could it be?
Edgar: I believe our arrangement... said the Jiants and Persona Users were mine to attend to.
Morgana: Attend to? That's sounds... Awfully churlish to me.
Cyberdramon: Yeah, but no. See, you may be Jiants and Persona Warriors, but my attention. I save for grown-ups.
Ryuji: Okay! You started to get me angry!
They are going to use their power, but their powers just electrocuted them
Futaba: What happened to us?
Ryuji: I don't know.
Makoto: What will you do to us?!
Edgar: Let's keep things civil if you don't mind. Please don't struggle.
Akira: What happened to our Persona Powers and your Mirages Power?
Reynn: I don't know.
Then they have been knocked out
