Roman
Hmm…

Roman
As far as I can observe, there’s nothing here.
Um, should I try extending the scan range?

Roman
We’ve definitely sent you back to 1st century Gaul, which is still reforming from the second singularity…

Roman
This is the right place, isn’t it?
Attila… I mean, Altera.

Altera
Do not call me Attila.
Yes, we must be close.

Altera
I can feel that someone in this land calls for me.
I am certain of it.

Altera
It is… a destructive impulse.
And not of the ordinary sort.

Altera
It is something that would bring ruin to everything within sight and yet continue to burn, never cooling.

Roman
An impulse, huh…
We can’t really capture something that isn’t observable as data.

Mashu
Maybe… she means that she can detect it as some sort of prana?

Altera
Prana… I will not deny that.

Altera
It is a compulsion more compelling than a Command Spell. Like some sort of protocol.
That is how I feel.

[1] — So you are sure, then?

Mashu
So it seems.
I believe so, as well.

[2] — A compulsion, huh…

Mashu
So she says…
Maybe it’s better if we be ready for combat.

— —

Fou, fou fouuu!

Altera
It is nearly upon us… the conglomeration of destructive impulses.

Mashu
We have readings of a Servant!
But this is too sudden…

Mashu
They must have be lying in wait in Spirit Form!
Senpai!

Brynhildr
How vexing…

Brynhildr
How could this be…? So, it is true…
But this is… all too vexing to me…

Brynhildr
This is his scent…
No… this is the scent of one close to him…

Brynhildr
Why do I, feel this…?
Why do I, think like this…?

Brynhildr
…A woman…

Brynhildr
Yes, no doubt…
Another woman… who would approach… my Sigurd…

Altera
Hm?

Mashu
Um… Miss Brynhildr, yes?
A woman who would approach your spouse? W-Who do you mean?

Brynhildr

Altera
She is looking at me.
It seems that the destruction was being driven towards me.

Altera
And yet I remember no Sigurd.
Hm…

Mashu
Oh…
No, please try to remember!

Fou?

Mashu
What if it’s…?
He isn’t Sigurd, but they do have similar origins and legends…

Mashu
You have met him before.
Yes, I believe it was…

(cut to Chaldea)

Mashu
…huh?

Mashu
Excuse me?
I’m sorry, please give me a moment to collect myself.

Mashu
So what you’re saying is…

Mashu
…you and Mr Siegfried were married to the same woman?

Siegfried
That’s right.

Siegfried
After my death, my wife Kriemhild remarried Etzel…

Siegfried
…otherwise known as Attila, the great king of the Huns.
The king had also recently lost a wife, as I understand.

Altera
Kriemhild…

Altera
My… wife.
Wife…

Altera
Wife…

[1] — You don’t remember her?

[2] — You married a woman?

Altera
I recall her name.
But I do not feel that I ever took her as a wife.

Altera
I was involved little in matters outside of warfare and destruction.
Such things did not hold my attention.

Altera
Yes… perhaps such a woman had sat by my side.

Roman
I think I get it.
Someone in Altera’s ruling court probably got the good sense to hook them up for diplomacy reasons and whatnot.

[1] — Sounds pretty dry…

[2] — I-Is that how it goes?

Siegfried
While I would like to speak some words on that matter, let us put it aside.

Siegfried
As I hear, Kriemhild merely used the king for the sake of her revenge.

Siegfried
And it was my death which drove her vengeance.
So I myself am in no position to fault Etzel.

Altera
Etzel…

Fou?

Altera
Etzel… I see…

Mashu
Miss Altera? Is something wrong?

Altera
Nothing.
But the name ‘Etzel’, it’s not bad.

[1] — Sounds a bit cute, doesn’t it?

[2] — It sounds a bit girly, huh?

Altera
No… that’s, not it…
You’re wrong…

Altera
It’s not.

Roman
Bullseye, huh…

Mashu
I see.

Siegfried
It appears so.

Fou-fou-fou ♪

Altera
It’s not…

(cut to present)

Mashu
…do you remember?

Altera
Yes, it is as you say.
But he is a different existence to Sigurd. A different hero.

Altera
Though I understand that the heroes Siegfried and Sigurd rose from the same source…

Brynhildr
Ahh…
How… could this be…?

Brynhildr
So it is true then…
To take, a wife…? How…

Brynhildr
How could such a thing be forgiven…?

[1] — Words aren’t getting through to her!

[2] — Um, I can hear alarm bells ringing!

Mashu
Y-Yes, she’s clearly preparing for combat!

Roman
What?! A Servant battle?!
Just like that?!

Brynhildr
Let us begin…

Altera
Hmph, so you wish for battle then?

Altera
I shall answer that call.
It is all that I am capable of… to wield this sword of destruction.

Altera
Come!
The blade of Mars shall shatter your drive…!

(fight)

Brynhildr
Oh… my… what, was I…?

Brynhildr
Were we, fighting?
Me? And you?

Altera
That is right.

Brynhildr
I… I see.
I wonder why…

Brynhildr
It is strange.
I do assault men, but rarely women…

Roman
That’s, aha, quite a thing to say.
But I suppose the Heroic Spirit Brynhildr did mostly target men.

Roman
Even her Noble Phantasm should be related to that…
A-Anyway, it’s a good thing we managed to clear all this up! Whew!

Mashu
Y-Yes, that’s right.
It was nothing big. Just like using the wrong buttonhole!

Altera
Hmm…

Brynhildr
Oh…?

Fou, fou…

Altera
In any case… it was a true stroke of luck to be able to cross arms with such a mighty figure.
It should aid somewhat in stabilising the targeting of my Noble Phantasm.

Fou-fou?
