Synopsis

Setting

Akatsuki no Kiseki takes place in September S.1204, which corresponds with the Intermission of Ao no Kiseki. The game is centred around two bracers that fulfil requests for the Bracer Guild branches in Crossbell, Liberl and Remiferia.

Prologue - Working as a Bracer

序章「遊撃士の仕事」/ Nacht Weiss, squad leader of the Nidhoggr jaeger corps, finds his entire squad of fellow war orphans murdered by the enemy. Out of despair, he quits his career as a jaeger and joins the Bracer Guild. There he meets Chloe Barnett, who dropped out of Jenis Royal Academy to pursue a path similar to her idol Estelle Bright. Bracer Guild Crossbell branch's clerk Michel welcomes the two for the entrance exam in Geofront.

There they meet a distressed maid named Aeoli, who informs them that her boss Rinka was being held hostage by two jaegers. Nacht calls Michel to inform him of the situation. Chloe suggests they call the Liberl Royal Army; Nacht points out that's no use in Crossbell. To strike a deal with the jaegers, Nacht offers the sepith he earned during the fights in Geofront. The jaegers turn down the offer and bring the aspiring bracers to their knees with a single hit. Michel shows up to reveal the entire scene was staged and that the actors involved were part of the entrance exams. The actors reveal themselves as the Crossbellan bracers Aeolia, Lynn, Scott and Wenzel. After evaluating their performance back at the Bracer Guild, Michel welcomes Nacht and Chloe as their new junior bracers.

For their first quest they go around Crossbell, where they run into a number of characters: the old couple Mors and Parla at East Street; Viper Slash in Downtown Crossbell; Grace Lee in the Waterfront Area; and Crossbell police agent Franz in the Governmental District, where Jillian Sky is concerned about Ronaldo Griffin in light of recent accidents in Erebonia and Calvard. In front of the theatre in the Entertainment District, they run into Ilya Platiere, Rixia Mao and Sully Artraid. Chloe almost walks in Neue Blanc in the Backalley, but Nachts call her back as Shirley Orlando passes by them. In the Residential Streets in the west they meet Harold Hayworth, and the children Ryuu, Anri and Momo playing in the West Street. They briefly stop at the Special Support Section's headquarters, where only KeA is at home to welcome them. Josette and Kyle Capua from Capua Delivery Service are at Crossbell Airport.

Upon returning from their tour through Crossbell, the junior bracers are sent to Imelda for a monster extermination quest. Chloe falls in love with the expensive dolls at Imelda's antique shop, but Nacht brings her back to her senses and both investigate the Maison Imelda apartment complex. After the fight, Nacht discovers that Chloe managed to recover much faster than himself.

Crossbell City's orbal store Genten requests Chloe and Nacht's assistance in revealing a potential fraud. Store manager Fernando is approached by three men clad in black, who ask for a deposit of hundred million mira loan to raise funds for the children of North Ambria. After the talk, Fernando reveals that Genten could be acquired and merged with Elfen Tech. To confirm whether the acquisition and the "N Fund" are related, Chloe, followed by Nacht, storm toward Elfen Tech, located in the IBC building. There they learn that Ronaldo Griffin of the Crossbell Police Department is also tasked with investigating this fraud. Lif, president of Elfen Tech, suggests that the frauds might have visited Elfen Tech's business partner, Capua Delivery Services in Bose, Liberl. Gunshots from the Highway led the two into a run-in with Ronaldo, after which they decide to continue the investigation together. During their investigation, they learn about the Capua family's past and deduct that the frauds might abuse the Capua's new-found goodwill for the people. They eventually locate the frauds, who apparently work for the mafia of Revache Co. They stop the mafia members and hand them over to the Royal Army.

Shortly after the fraud incident, the Bracer Guild receives an appeal from the Crossbell Police Department for a "Cross Project", in which bracers and police investigators team up to exchange experiences. After learning about master quartz from Genten, they head toward the Crossbell Police Department to fulfil the request to patrol town and, through talking with citizens, gather information about Crossbell in the meantime. At the end of the day, Chloe and Nacht report back at the Bracer Guild regarding the first success of the "Cross Project" .

Chapter 1 - Assistant at the Queen's Birthday Celebration

第一章「女王生誕祭の支援」/ With Alicia von Auslese's birthday coming up, the Grancel branch of the Bracer Guild requests additional help for the Queen's Birthday Celebration. Crossbell Airport, however, is crowded and Jillian informs them about other potential means of transportation. From the lookout platform at Ursula Byroad, they discover that this means of transportation referred to the Ainsel. Reluctantly Chloe accepts Lif's help and they head off to Grancel.

Upon their arrival in Grancel, they help out Bracer Guild clerk Elnan with a number of requests of the Royal Army. The requests include patrolling through Grancel. During their uneventful round, Chloe and Nacht learn about the "Artful Tactician", A-rank bracer Kurt Nardin. Teresa of the Mercia Orphanage has put up an request to escort the orphans through a sightseeing tour through the capital. During the quest, Chloe learns that Gilbert Stein, whom she remembers as a fellow Ruan citizen, was responsible for the arson at Mercia Orphanage and that he has been working with the Society ever since. Gilbert and fellow enhanced jaegers attempt to take Lif hostage, but said attempt ends in vain as the Elften Tech president reveals she is a skilled martial artist, and soon has Gilbert begging for mercy. Gilbert reveals that there are two jaeger corps active in Grancel during the Queen's Birthday Celebration. Before they can have him share more information, he escapes by using a smokescreen.

Back at the Bracer Guild in Grancel, Chloe and Nacht learn that the jaeger corps that infiltrated Grancel have planted bombs on numerous locations. The Cross Project squad is tasked with investigating these. The bombs, known as "Phaia", contain 0.7 torim of explosives and with one found in the Grand Arena, they discuss strategies for finding potential others at the Ainsel. From the orbal communication device they found in the waiting room of Grand Arena comes the voice of Jester corps' commanding officer, Jericho the Fool, leaving them with the riddle "The block where the red sun sets in the blue sea". They deduce that it refers to the West Block where they find their next riddle: "The blue sea freezes, tinging the girl's cheeks with red." Thanks to the swift co-operation with senior bracers Estelle and Joshua, they managed to save children from the explosion. In the North Block, they find another one: "A blue hall with a hundred treasures, the building where red-blooded knights assembled." By now the young team had retrieved the majority of the bombs, but still hadn't found the most dangerous one: Phaia.

They deduced that Jericho the Fool's aim is to blow up the Grand Arena, where Brigadier General Cassius Bright would appear. They made their way to the arena and searched the audience. They continued their investigation in the waiting rooms for the contestants, but soon realised that the jaegers got lost in the sea of comtestants. Then it all spectators reveal themselves as members of the Royal Army, making it easy for them to catch the whole jaeger herd and retrieve the Phaia bomb. The group is invited to the Erbe Royal Village, where Cassius Bright reveals that the Grand Arena plan was all his doing. The group returned to Crossbell onboard the Ainsel.

Upon their return, Jillian Sky provides the group with updates and calls a meeting at the Crossbell Police Department headquarters to discuss the unrest in Crossbell. They investigate several places in Crossbell City, the Geofront and Mainz before they report back to Jillian. The problems with orbments remind them of the orbal shutdown phenomenon. Their only lead is the manager of the Geofront, whose behaviour was off. When they found the phony Geofront manager, things take for a worse and the group has to be saved by the Special Support Section. After exchanging information with the S.S.S in their office, the young bracers return to their guild to report the completion of their quest.

Chapter 2 - Robbery at ZCF

第二章「中央工房の盗難事件」/ The Bracer Guild - Zeiss Branch asks for their help for the investigation of a robbery at the Zeiss Central Factory. Upon arrival they find Murdock compeletely upset that their precious Capel II orbal computer got robbed. To restore his honourable reputation as factory chief, he is desperately looking for a female employee who disappeared not to long ago. Once they managed to get Murdock to calm down a little, they conclude that the criminal must have operated from within the Factory and learn that the woman who disappeared behaved differently right before she disappeared.

As they return to the Bracer Guild, they learn that the female employee has been seen at Leiston Fortress. Her face was injured and she was smuggling goods into the fortress. Nacht and Chloe decide to investigate the military base and discover that Jericho the Fool has been killed in his cell by someone. They couldn't, however, find a trail that would lead them to the disappeared ZCF employee, so they return to Zeiss. They conclude that the lack of proof is the proof itself: the criminal of the robbery is none other than the female employee herself. Putting the strange events in Crossbell and the stolen Capel II together, however, suggests a large-scale cyber terror attack is being planned. They quickly return to Crossbell to investigate.

Upon their return in Crossbell, they find that the City is being terrorised by a cyber criminal. The culprit is identified by Ronaldo as a former high-ranking investigator of the Crossbell Police Department named Samuel Leitner. The police originally wanted to settle the matters from within their organisation, but ultimately requested the help from the Bracer Guild and the Epstein Foundation. The formal investigation issued by Mayor Crois leads the bracers to prepare their investigation in the Geofront alongside the police. The junior bracers are responsible for Block C, where Nacht and Chloe discover that Ronaldo and Jillian have quite the history together.

Their investigation of Geofront - Block C is halted by the cyber criminal, who hacks the elevators and stops the parties in their tracks. With the combined effort of the police, Epstein Foundation and engineers of the IBC, they manage to bypass the hacker's influence so the parties can continue. In the end they meet each other at the Junction Point, meaning they know where the criminal must be located. During Leitner's arrest Ronaldo gets shot in the chest and is rushed toward St. Ursula Medical College, while Leitner himself ends up in jail.

Around the time the cyber-terrorism case was solved, Ronaldo was discharged from the hospital and the young bracers met up with him at the Crossbell Police Department. Sonya Balz personally requested the Einzel crew to attend the air defence force training.

Chapter 3 - Assistant Bodyguard

第三章「要人護衛の補佐」/ After an Air Defense Training, the protagonists receive a request to team up with Arios in Remfieria and help him out as personal bodyguard of Prince Albert. After disembarking from the Ainsel at Remiferia Airport, they were subjected to Remiferia's strict immigration check. After patrolling the streets and clearing some requests, they saw off Arios and Catharina as Albert's escorts. In front of Gerome Co., they run into an earl who Lif gets into a business-related discussion with, during which Chloe overhears "demotion" and "personal revenge". They continue their round through Remiferia and return to the Bracer Guild.

There they learn that there might be drug trafficking in Remiferia's downtown, where a strange man is said to transfer his narcotic drugs to youngsters. Their investigation leads them to the Ardent Press, where Arthur has disappeared and can't be contacted. The drugs trade seems to be related to a jaeger corps, so the Remiferia Police, Remiferian Army, Bracer Guild and the protagonists join forces to catch the whole herd with a single throw.

In the depths of the Sigyun Forest they discover the former Remiferia Lodge of the D∴G Cult, in which a Hydra has made its nest. Carefully, they make it to the half-way point. As they discover the "experiments" and "rituals" the Cult is known for, Chloe starts to act weird herself. At the end of the approach the deepest part of the lodge, they hear voices of the jaegers. Apparently they're being led by Baran. The group has to fight off military dogs that for some reason can't fight at full capacity. Arios easily wipes them out as the jaegers resort to the use of red pills.

The red pills swallowed by the jaegers, however, aren't Gnosis but a poison for suicide so they wouldn't be able to spill their secrets. Its also revealed that Lif is actually the princess of Remiferia, apparently.

Chapter 4 - The Trilateral Summit

第四章「三カ国会談」/ Michel of the Bracer Guild - Crossbell Branch requests Nacht and Chloe to return to Crossbell. They leave the escort of Prince Albert for the Trilateral Summit to their senior, Arios MacLaine. On the way back, Nacht ponders how long the shadows of his past at Nidhoggr will follow him and wonders where he knows the song Chloe always hum from. It saddens him that he feels encouraged by the song.

As they return to Crossbell City, Managing Director Hogarth rings Lif's Enigma to inform her that there is a problem of entitlement with Elfen Tech. Lif asks Chloe and Nacht to escort her back to her company. During the talk, Lif suddenly disappears, arousing suspicions regarding her most trusted partner, but there was no way she could carry Lif out on her own. Still, Sasha had been an intelligence officer for the Remiferian army.

In their attempt to find Lif, Nacht and Chloe head toward the Crossbell Airport. There they run into Kyle and Josette Capua, who are willing to help them out. They head toward the Ainzel to report the situation to Jillian. Ronaldo had not told her that Lif was actually the princess of Remiferia. With the Crossbell Police Department joining in on the search, they head to the IBC building once again. Reverbs. Mariabell Crois was not willing to share Lif's whereabouts, after which the group moved to the Bracer Guild. Michel knew that Lif was actually a princess - he had coordinated the escort of prince Albert after all. Reverbs.

They found a clue regarding the incident, in which Sasha was undoubtedly deeply involved. They move to the place closest to Eidios, the Crossbell Cathedral. That's where they find Lif, but leave her in custody of Harold Hayworth.

Lif and her partners follow Sasha's whereabouts. They run into monsters that appear to be remodelled versions of the ones used by Jerome and wonder whether the area was once used as a test site for experiments.

Michel contacts them through Enigma, sharing the news that information had found its way anonymously to his reception desk. The group hurries toward the Bracer Guild.

First, they head toward was formerly known as Elfen Tech. Inside, they found the Managing Director and Executive Director. They were welcomed warmly, but instead headed toward the second investigation division of the Crossbell Police Department. According to information obtained by Donovan, Jerome Co. is involved in mira laundering. Slowly, Chloe and Nacht started to piece the puzzle together.

Per Chloe's request, Nacht examined the bank account of Elfen Tech and found that only the profits of the investment trust had been transferred. They moved to Sasha to gather her report as a witness.

Rixia offered information that corroborated Sasha's theory of false accusation. Rixia had seen suspicious yet professional movement within Maison Imelda in Crossbell City's Downtown at night, so that's where they headed next. Thoroughly investigating the place led to nothing, however. Still, something in the old apartment felt out of place. In the room in the far back, Chloe stumbled upon a trap system only known to Nidhoggr. They defeated the incoming monsters and teamed up with Ronaldo and co.

***

Their anonymous informants were former mafia members, claiming that high-ranking jaegers have been seen entering Jerome Company. The informants also overheard them say "to the Moon" to owner Count Jerome, which Lif interpreted that they would find answers in the Moon Temple. They found the barricade in front of the temple destroyed and prepared themselves to infiltrate the ruin.

There they learnt about a collaboration between the remnants of the D∴G Cult, a political faction from Remiferia and jaeger corps Nidhoggr. The one pulling the strings behind the scenes and the one mentioned by Bahran is no other than faction leader Jerome von Bartholomeus.

From within the temple, Jerome revealed the jaegers are the Magen (胃袋) battalion of the gluttonous Niddhoggr and also that Jerome had been responsible for the death of Lif's parents. He also reveals his plan to kill Prince Albert and make Lif his puppet to rule Remiferia from the shadows. As he left, Lif ordered Sasha to look after him while the protagonists head of Mishelam to stop the Magen's attempt to murder Prince Albert.

From the fog above Lake Elm, Niddhoggr's ship appears and turns Mishelam into a battlefield between the jaegers and the Crossbell Guardian Force. The representatives of each attending nation are driven into a corner while the corpse hunts Prince Albert.

They find Prince Albert surrounded by his remaining guards, cornered in the waterfront of Mishelam. Then Arios intervened and subsequently wiped out the jaegers, turning the battle into his favour. As a result, the smaller platoons near the other nations' representatives jumped into the lake and swam away from the battlefield. The protagonists were relieved to see Lif was able to reconcile with Prince Albert. Count Jerome was found near the Crossbell-Erebonian border. Tricked by Preston and Hogarth, he was stopped and arrested by the Crossbell Police Department.

The overall damage was limited compared to the Cult Incident and the attack on the West Zemuria Trade Conference. All facilities on Mishelam stay closed and the Trilateral Summit was continued. Nacht wonders how long he'll be able to continue to betray 'them'. And just as everything appeared to be settled, Red Constellation and Nidhogr appear once again under command of a new employer on the Marshlands south of Lake Elm.

Chapter 5 - Conspiracies in Liberl

第五章「リベールの陰謀」- After dealing with the Trilateral Summit and the arrest of Count Jerome, all members of the Cross Project returned to their original duties in Crossbell. Soon thereafter, Ronald and Katarina stopped by at the guild to inform the bracers about a mission. The group was contacted by Riot VC, who informed them of their mission of connecting cities and regions with insufficient medical equipment to the orbal telephones of medical institutes. Ready to set off, they headed to Rolent.

Their first destination would be the Malga Mine, one of the area's key industries, where would would assist in the fine-tuning of orbal communication equipment. Their mission would be to assist in fine-tuning orbal communication equipment. At the mine, Arthur Speier awaited them to gather information of Riot VC's new project. Just when they were ready to verify the equipment was working, an explosion came from within the mine. The group defeats the monsters inside and returns to the guild to report the incident. After reporting, they were tasked with replacing the road lamps at Milch Main Road with groundbreaking new models that would last long in light of Riot VC's new project.

The new mission from Aina deals with standing guard during the orbal communication gear's installation at the Esmelas Tower, but the worker who placed the request informs them there's an obstacle they would have to ask the mayor about. Visiting Mayor Klaus' home, they learn that he is reluctant to give permission for the device's installation as there are still problems with the current system. If the connection test of the Riot Communication System is delayed, however, a penalty will be imposed for non-compliance of the contract. Lif suggests a stand-alone connection test instead, to which both parties agree. The Cross Project members set out for the tower.

Upon arriving at the foot of the tower, the group hears some kind of sound. Inside they find that monsters have made the interior their den. The group prioritises the worker's safety as they made their way to the top. In order to keep the monsters at a distance, orbal lamps are installed when they suddenly discover Dorothy followed them into the party into the tower. They discover the septium with the orbal communication device attracts the monsters more than the lamps keep them at bay. Still, they return to report to the mayor.

The mayor issues them to bring the faulty communication device to Zeiss. After a brief stop at the Bracer Guild's Zeiss branch, where they meet up with Gundolf, they head to ZCF. Tita keeps the party company as they wait for Factory Chief Murdock to end his meeting. They found his meeting was with President Olson of Riot VC regarding the results of the test in Rolent. Murdock accepted the device for repairs, which is packed with sweetness according to him. Chloe and co. were requested to have more road lamps replaced with the newer type as they waited for the repairs for finish.

Back in Zeiss, the Cross Project ran into Nial and Dorothy. Enthusiastically they showed the image Dorothy took in the Esmelas Tower, which reminded the group that the photograph must depict what made the sound they heart. Concluding the human eye wouldn't be able to discern the source, they leave the photograph with Tita, report back to the bracer guild in Zeiss and head out to Ruan.

First, Chloe decides she wants to swing by her parents' house before reporting to the bracer guild, where they are greeted by Jan and Carna. Next, they visit the mayor's home during the mayor's negotiation with Riot VC. They gained knowledge over the construction of a "Ruan Theatre". The plans that were shown would put the structure in front of the harbour. Depending on its remodel it could also be used as a base for jaegers, Nacht concludes. The group heads out to the Langland Bridge to win more information about their mission.

Helping out an investigator near the riverside with an examination of fishes, they returned to the guild and headed to the Varenne Lighthouse to exterminate monsters. In front of the lighthouse were villagers from Manoria, who claimed that lighthouse keeper Fokt was still in the structure. The Cross Project battled their way upstairs. They discovered Fokt unharmed on the top floor, but behind them more monsters crept up. They defeated the monsters and reported back the events to the guild.

Not only Katarina awaited them at the guild, Jan had also received news from the ZCF: no conclusive errors were found in the new type of road lamps. They did find something they couldn't explain: there apparently is an orbal circuit entirely unnecessary for the devices for be operational, suggesting it was either a flaw in its design or entirely intentional. Further examination is required to determine the superfluous circuit's nature. The orbal communication device is designed to isolate septium, but the case itself is remarkably fragile. They found that the device might suddenly explode through the burden of orbal energy on one part of the circuit. As a result, they surmise this was the cause the device attracted monsters.

After Jan finished delaying the report, Nacht noticed Katarina's smirk before they headed toward Hotel Blanche. Apparently Riot VC's temporary office was situated on the second floor. They eavesdorp, overhearing the mayor and Espen. It sounds as if Espen is crying. Seeing the group, Mayor Norman tells them his weeping is a mere facade and they shouldn't believe his story. He announced that the collaboration will be officially declared frozen the following day and that for now they should reduce the risks by replacing the new type road lamps with conventional types. As such, they head toward Aurian Causeway.

In the middle of their duties, Chloe confesses that she hasn't felt like her usual self lately. They discuss the events they've been through in the past few weeks and conclude both she and Nacht must be tired. After Espen's meeting with the mayor, a woman appears before him.

Having travelled with the group from Rolent to Ruan, it is now time for Katarina to return to Remiferia. In the north block, the group runs into Arthur, who after wrapping up his story on Katarina was now tasked with Ruan's cuisine. It was crowded in front of the mayor's manor. Among the journalists were Nial and Dorothy. As soon as the interview starts, the vice-president of Riot VC bursts onto the scene. Even after the interview was finished, Espen was still worked up. Lif called out for the president, who had been watching the scene as well. Knowing how Espen felt, he calmed him down and the two returned to the hotel. The bracers returned to their duties.

Upon their return, Mayor Norman had already issued a formal request to replace all road lamps to their conventional counterparts in the region. Jan requested of the group to take bracers Deen, Rocco and Rais along with them. In the warehouse in south Ruan, they discovered that the conventional lamps had almost been destroyed by monsters. After exterminating them, Ronald discovered the same orbal device on the monster's body as they found on fishes in Crossbell's harbour before. They sent Deen and co. to the guild to report while they patrolled the area for potential other threats, wondering if they didn't overlook the bigger picture.

Back in Hotel Blanche, Nacht hears the voice of one of his former partners who should have died two years ago, Airi. Throwing almost a maddening smile toward Chloe, Nacht wonders whether Airi is related to the incidents with Riot VC and Nidhoggr. At that moment, she launches an attack against the two bracers. In the nick of time Agate, who had tracing Riot VC's movement on his own, shows up to protect the two bracers. His swordmanship with a greatsword is enough for Airi to flee the scene. The bracers pursue her.

They follow her to the Board of Directors meeting room. In the centre of the room they find Espen and Airi. After they realise Espen is behaving strangely, they see the same orbal device that they found on the monsters has been attached to him. Unable to keep with Airi, they lose her out of their sight. They then notice something strange is going on in the harbour. They meet up again with Rocco, Deen and Rais to battle a great horde of monsters.

Thanks to Carna's efforts, the Gull Seaside Way is also clear of monsters. They hurry back to the guild, where they find Tita and Professor Russell. They had come to report their findings on Riot VC's orbal communication device and the photograph shot by Dorothy. Depicted in the photograph is an enormous battleship, which transmits orbal energy while airborne to direct the orbal lamps and communication devices. The conversation is interrupted by a call from Agate, who persued President Olson's orbal car to the Sapphirl Tower. The group boards the Einzel.

They had almost reached the Sapphirl Tower when they saw the aircraft hovering mid-air, which stopped all the Einzel's functionalities. The ship was forced to make an emergency landing near the tower. Professor Russell found that the orbal communication devices contain a record circuit, which can be used to gather information from the battleship's orbal communications system and its radar. Assuming their opponents' goal is the record circuit, they hurry into the tower.

In front of the tower they found President Olson's car. Inside the tower they met up with Agate. Using a considerably powerful orbal gun, the president himself secured himself a way through the tower. The party pursues him and eventually catches up. They overhear him muttering that he's sure the vice-president is at the top, leaving the bracers to wonder how he knows in the first place. Arrving at the top, they find Airi, Espen and a fainted, but seemingly unharmed Mayor Norman. Olson tries to persuade them, but his words don't reach Espen - not unless they can remove the device. Agate then suddenly appears behind them, manages to rescue the mayor and remove the device on the vice-president. He immediately calms down, but the removal gave rise to a group of armored soldiers that appears from the shadows behind them.

Agate was quick to remark that they were no ordinary soldiers, but more akin to archaisms. Airi takes advantage of the chaos and immediately takes President Olson hostage. He starts talking about Chloe's heart surgery, who loses consciousness over the shock. Still taken hostage, Olson opens fire on Espen. As they expected, Airi and Olson were conspirators, who now laughed at the party as they fled the scene. They exterminated the armoured soldiers. Silently they made their way down the tower, wondering how the circumstances of Airi, Olson, Riot VC, Nidhoggr and Chloe's condition fit together. Back in Ruan, Espen was locked in the jail in Mayor Norman's house until he would be handed over to the Royal Army. In-between the mayor's lamenting, they conclude that the manipulation device was developed by Riot VC after all. They report back to the guild.

In the Bracer Guild they find Alan Richard, owner of R&A Research. He was requested to investigate Riot VC by a certain agency and decides to exchange intelligence with the bracers. Going through information about Riot VC and Nidhoggr, they continuously run into the same alias: the Warlord (戦争卿), also known as a merchant of death (死の商人), a name Nacht had heard numerous times before and the very person Ronald had been chasing. Ronald already suspected that these events surrounding Nidhoggr were nothing but experiments by the Warlord. They decide to ask Agate for more information on Airi and Nidhoggr as they continue their investigation into Riot VC.

Chloe awakens in the medical room of the Einzel. Before they left, she wanted to have a talk with her parents. Lif and Ronald insisted Nacht would follow and support her. Chloe asks her parents about her heart condition and whether it was true whether she was dead once. However, in her attempt to reveal the truth Chloe's heart starts to ache and her breathing becomes irregular. Her father catches her in his arms, her mother helps to support them. Giving them some private space, Nacht decides to wait outside. After a while, Chloe comes bursting through the door opening.

Chloe pretends to be her usual self, but there's nothing she can do to stop the trembling. As she already suspected, the sobbingly told Nacht that she had discussed her heart surgery with her parents. Nacht calms her down, saying the Cross Project members will do whatever they can to help her lighten her burden. Nacht plans to tell her about his history with Airi as well.

Chapter 6

Chapter 6 was added to Akatsuki no Kiseki on 30 May 2018.

Peace returned to the City of Ruan and the Cross Project members decide to check the region's outskirts for others threats. After Nacht and Lif checked the Gull Seaside Way while Chloe and Ronald patrolled the Aurian Causeway, they report back to Jan at the guild at the confusion following the incident has calmed down. With their training at the City of Bose postponed, they wrap up the final two requests in Ruan, thank Jan for his support and return to Crossbell City.

After their arrival in Crossbell, the group decides to pay a visit to Riot VC's Crossbell branch. The suited man they met at the branch was actually a R&A Research employee. They exchange intelligence and head toward the Bracer Guild. They informed Michel about the events in Ruan and inquire about their next mission. Apparently the Bracer Guild is planning to collaborate with R&A Research to investigate the events related to the Warlord. While the guild works out the specifics, the young bracers pick up the remaining quest. There's also a missing cases in Crossbell and Remiferia. They wonder whether it's related to the Warlord. They meet up with Ronald at the Crossbell State Police Department. Nacht understand Ronald's impatience regarding the case six years ago, but recommends to wait for the results of the analysis instead of doing anything reckless.

In order to assist R&A Research in their investigation, the Cross Project members are tasked to visit the Riot VC headquarters in Remiferia. On their way there, the Einzel was contacted by Katarina Ford to request their support with a monster extermination in the village of Denai. On the road to Denai, the group is ambused by monsters. The monster poisons Chloe. Since they could not cure the poison with an ordinary antidote, they rushed back to the Einzel. Suddenly, a boy who referred to himself as the Forest Sage (森の賢者) appears before them, decocting a medicinal tea for Chloe. Nacht wonders how the boy named Noah possessing knowledge on both medicinal herbs and how to deal with monsters. They report the successful extermination of the monster to Denai's Mayor Jenn and head to the Bracer Guild - Ardent Branch.

In Ardent, they meet once again with Arthur, who informs that Riot VC has little influence over the daily lives to people. At the guild, they exchange information about Riot VC with Katarina while enjoying her special tea. Katarina handed them two envelops: one addressed to the person in charge of R&A Research and one about the missing cases for Remiferia Police Headquarters. The groups makes note not to confuse the two enveloppes.

As promised during the Tri-Lateral Summit, the Cross Project members are invited to a banquet at the prince's palace. They decide for Jillian to arrive. As they wait, Arthur stops by claiming he wanted to hold interviews during the banquet but was refused. They promise Arthur to exchange information about the banquet with him in exchange for intelligence on President Olson, but they worry he might break his part of the deal.

As they arrive at the party, Alan Richard tags along with the group. Even during the banquet, he will continue to gather intelligence. Carl Jaarssen, secretary of Prince Albert von Bartholomeus, requestss the group to meet with a man named Peter Seiler, president of the medical device maker Seiler Co. Ltd. Unable to find him inside the palace, they move their search to Ardent's New Town when they run into Airi. They soon find out that Airi has become much stronger compared to their fight on top of the Sapphirl Tower. Just when the bracers are about to lose, they are saved by an A-rank bracer from Calvard, Zin Vathek.

Zin pursues Airi while the group returns to the Einzel so Chloe can grab some rest. Now Airi has showed up, Nacht is sure that Nidhoggr is once again related to the current events

Next: Seiler Co. Ltd.
