The crew had regrouped at a rendezvous point in Albion, awaiting intel on Corow.
"It all started with Xeno Ifrit's awakening last February," said Sierokarte, counting the collected fans. "The Foe's machinations caused Ifrit to go on a rampage on a small island in Valtz."
Mae looked at her flamescythe.
"After Ifrit was suppressed, his minions faced judgement at Vohu Manah's temple on Ravi," said Siero. "But the monsters were pardoned, so a call went out for skyfarers to raid it."
Xeta looked at her judgement lyre.
"Alarmed by a possible alliance between Ifrit and Vohu, Sagittarius began patrolling the islands betwen Auguste and Eingana," said Siero. " He started attacking monsters and humans alike, so the authorities put out a call."
Spark looked at his flashspear.
"In turn, Sagi's defeat caused Cocytus to awaken," said Siero. "Naturally, agents from Mizarea launched an operation to suppress it."
Rai looked at her dreamstaff.

Xeta and Rai looked at their phantom blades.
"But Diablo ian't the only one who's been watching and waiting," said Siero, beaming. "Isn't there one other primal who regularly clashes with skyfarers?"
"Corow," said Rai. "So when Typh provoked Corow into a war..."
"Diablo might've seen these battles as a chance for data, but Corow would probably see them as part of one long conflict," said Xeta. "Either way, thanks to Typh, we're still at war with Corow."
"Taify, what have you done?" said Mae, pointing at the cardboard cutout.
