This is a work in progress detailing the dialogue of the Maquina story line.
Chapter 1 - The EyewitnessEdit
Act 1 Start Animation - Bellator Infiltration
Mech Kingdom: Capital City of Automaton
Gearsmith: Thank you for coming so quickly.
Gearsmith: We don't know each other well yet, but I have a special request.
Gearsmith: I want you to travel to a village in Bellator's territory.
Gearsmith: And in 26 hours, pay special attention to the region at the center of the village and record what happens.
Reesa: Record what happens? That's it?
Gearsmith: Yes. You are not to engage in anything else.
Gearsmith: Also, if anyone from Bellator sees you, they must not know of your affiliation with Maquina.
Reesa: I see. That's why you're using pirates instead of your own soldiers?
Gearsmith: I'm glad you understand.
Gearsmith: There is no war right now, but the tension is strong enough that sending my forces could relight the fire.
Gearsmith: And now, you'd best be on your way. You don't have too much time.
Act 1 Boss Arriving Animation - vs. Chain Mistress Abia
Reesa: Okay. We need to set sail for Bellator.
Reesa: Sanctus, Maquina, and Bellator have been going at each other for ages. There's a cease-fire right now, but--
Reesa: We can't afford to let the guards see us. We'd better sneak in behind them.
??? (Abia): Halt! What're you doing here?
Reesa: Haha-- Of course someone spots us right away.
??? (Abia): Avast! I am Chain Mistress Abia of the Artemis Clan!
??? (Abia): I can tell by one long, hard look at you that you're nothing but low down pirates.
Abia: Surrender yourselves to me!
Act 2 Start Animation - The Dragon Awakens
Reesa: We're almost to the village.
Reesa: Let's go get a good view of the village! How about we sit on the tip of that hill over there?
Reesa: You know, I wonder what's going to happen? The Gearsmith never said.
Reesa: Okay, almost time-- Want a countdown to the big event?
Reesa: There's 60 seconds. I'm so excited, I don't think I can contain myself!
Reesa: 25-- 24-- This village is so peaceful. It doesn't LOOK like anything is about to happen--
Reesa: 10-- 9--Almost there. 5-- 4-- 3-- 2-- 1--
??? (Dragon): BRAAAAAAH!
Reesa: Blimey! A DRAGON! And it popped out of the ground!
Reesa: THIS is what the Gearsmith was talking about?
Reesa: Oh! And it's HEADING THIS WAY! Captain! RUN!
Act 2 Boss Arriving Animation - vs. Alexa the Cunning
Reesa: Did we lose it? It won't come after us again, right?
Abia: Stop! Pirates!
Reesa: Ugh! Not her again!
Abia: You embarrassed me last time! But this time will be different!
Abia: Alexa, are you ready?
Alexa: I'm ready to go all-out any time!
Alexa: Just don't forget you promised a treat! You won't get my service again if you don't follow through!
Abia: I know! Now let's get moving!
Abia: I am Chain Mistress Abia of the Artemis Clan!
Alexa: And I'm Alexa. Here goes!
Chapter 2 - Captive ProphetEdit
Act 1 Start Animation - An Unhappy Ending
Reesa: Man, I'm exhausted after going at it with those two. I can't wait to get back to Maquina and hop into bed.
Abia: *pant* Maquina--?
Abia: Why is someone from Maquina here?
Mech Nation: Capital City of Automaton
Reesa: We're finally back. I just wanna take a nice, hot bath--
??? (Idola): You certainly took your sweet time returning.
Idola: By the authority of the Gearsmith, you are under arrest.
Reesa: WHAT?! But I don't like handcuffs!
Reesa: Why do you have to take us to a place like this?!
Idola: Rumors are circulating that Maquina is behind the awakening of the Immortal Dragon.
Idola: The Gearsmith was quite clear that you were to ensure you were not discovered.
Reesa: I-It wasn't our fault!
Idola: No excuses!
Idola: The Gearsmith does not take failure lightly!
Idola: Now, welcome to your new home. I made sure they washed it out with spoiled milk just for you!
Idola: Get in there!
Reesa: Hell no! Hah! How do you like that?!
Idola: You-- locked me in here! It stinks in here! Let me out this instant!
Reesa: I'm NOT going to jail! Time for a prison break, Captain!
Act 1 Boss Arriving Animation - vs. Pistol Whip Idola
Idola: You-- How DARE you lock me in that filthy cell!
Reesa: Leave us alone!
Idola: It's time you learned the price for disobedience!
Idola: One shot from my massive gun will knock you flat on your back!
Reesa: Not that it doesn't sound fun, but I think we'll pass.
Idola: I'm sending you back to your stinky cell!
Act 2 Start Animation - Prison Break
Reesa: Captain, any idea what we should do?
??? (Zahar): You must be the pirates, I foresaw.
Reesa: Eek! Don't startle me like that!
Reesa: Who are you?!
Reesa: They've got you in manacles too-- What did you DO?
Zahar: I'm Zahar. I angered the Gearsmith, so she sent me here. It's been many years since I saw the light of day.
Reesa: But-- that's horrible! Captain, we have to help her!
Zahar: Thank you. I'll lend a hand where I can.
Zahar: It should be good for a laugh at least.
Act 2 Boss Arriving Animation - vs. Pistol Whip Idola 2
Idola: Gah-- There you are--
Reesa: Whaaaa?! Captain, she just keeps coming!
Idola: And who's with you? --Zahar?! WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!
Idola: Do you have any idea who she is? That [is] the prophet Zahar!
Idola: She's a witch whose predictions of disaster have caused chaos in Maquina
?! Even now--
Zahar: My prediction came true then? The Immortal Dragon did awake in Bellator.
Reesa: Predictions of disaster? Immortal Dragon? Does that mean our mission--
Idola: Was to verify her prophecy. That's right.
Idola: We'd much rather this witch's predictions were false.
Reesa: Huh? Why's that?
Idola: Never you mind! Now go back to your cells!
Chapter 3 - Mermaid EncounterEdit
Act 1 Start Animation - A New Mission
Gearsmith: That's enough.
Zahar: Oh, Gearsmith, it's been so long since your last visit. I was beginning to feel lonely down here all by myself.
Gearsmith: Have you no shame, Zahar?
Gearsmith: My visit, your meeting with the pirates-- You saw it all already.
Gearsmith: Go back to your cell, Zahar. You already know you can't leave.
Zahar: Yes, well. I got bored is all.
Zahar: Oh, by the way, about these pirates--
Zahar: Letting them out of this place is the wisest course of action.
Zahar: If there is anyone who can change the future you're so afraid of, it is these pirates.
Reesa: Blimey! I'm not sure what's going on, but--
Gearsmith: I will defer your punishment-- for now.
Gearsmith: I have a new mission for you. You shall capture a deserter from my army.
Gearsmith: Show me you have the power to be useful to this nation and I may forgive your previous failure.
Gearsmith: Nekana, you take it from here.
Nekana: I am the cyborg soldier, Nekana. The deserter is working with a group of pirates.
Nekana: Your mission is to eliminate the pirates and help facilitate the capture of the deserter.
Nekana: Let us proceed.
Act 1 Boss Arriving Animation - vs. Kali the Small One
When I awoke, I had no memories.
I was afraid to open my eyes because I couldn't remember anything-- not who my parents are, not even my own name.
I've known only terror since I escaped that place.
??? (Kali): Eighteen, be ye asleep?
Eighteen: I'm awake, Kali. What's wrong?
Kali: We have a problem! We be found by a bunch 'o band 'o pirates-- 'n they brought an army wit' them!
Kali: I'm not sure our crew be strong enough to hold that lot back.
Eighteen: I see. Kali, thank you for everything. I will distract them while you escape.
Kali: WHAT?! No! What're ye sayin'?!
Kali: I thought ye wanted to find out 'bout ye parents!
Kali: Any scurvy pirate would gift up a treasure chest to have parents who lust them.
Kali: I mean, me mom gave me up to a scurvy pirate ship when I was 7 years old--
Kali: Just be off 'n be a pirate, she said. That's child neglect!
Kali: I did get to meet ye, but--
Eighteen: You certainly lead a dramatic life.
Kali: I be needin' a grog-filled endin' fer ye! Bin seen too may sad ones already!
Kali: Come on! Ye're injured 'n too weak to sword fight. Be off, get to safety.
Eighteen: Okay. But Kali, be careful.
Reesa: Deserter! Where are you?
Kali: Eep! They're here!
Kali: Tis me first time-- fighting. But I have to protect Eighteen!
Act 2 Start Animation - Relentless Pursuit
Poor, Eighteen. Spurred by fear, with no plan--
You run away from danger with no direction in mind.
You won't be able to operate for much longer--
You've taken severe damage, and your body is failing.
You must keep my assistance a secret, even from those gentle pirates.
I hope that someday you get to see your parents again.
Kali: I be sorry! I lost! Get goin'! Now!
Kali: Ye gunna see ye parents!
Kali: Even if I have to take ye thar myself!
Kali: Get on me back! I be stronger than I look!
Kali: Eek! Ye be knowin', ye're harrrd to carry when ye're so wet 'n slippery.
Eighteen: *sigh* Sorry.
Act 2 Boss Arriving Animation - vs. Mech Mermaid 18
Reesa: We've got them now!
Eighteen: I guess we can't get away after all.
Reesa: What? No way! The deserter is a mermaid!
Nekana: You have nowhere to run. Surrender.
Kali: No way! I won't let ye take Eighteen back to th' Lab!
Kali: Eighteen wasn't born a cyborg! They took her to that horrible lab 'n made her into a livin' weapon!
Kali: [']N I be not goin' to let ye take her back thar! I be takin' her home!
Chapter 4 - The Elven ForestEdit
Act 1 Start Animation - Into the Forest
Kali: Don't worry, Eighteen. I'll get ye home.
Kali: But first, let's get out 'o here!
Kali and Eighteen disappear into the sea.
Eighteen: Thank you, Kali.
Eighteen: But I don't have the strength to swim anymore.
Eighteen: I hope this tide carries me home--
Reesa: She's gone! It's going to take forever to find her now--
Nekana: Defeating the pirates was sufficient. I will handle the rest.
Nekana: You have new orders. You are to go to the Elf Forest now.
Reesa: The Elf Forest?
Nekana: It is a massive forest in the center of the continent that straddles the three nations.
Nekana: Each nation has troops there because it is filled with dangerous monsters.
Nekana: I have prepared a map. The person in charge of our forces there will tell you the rest.
Reesa: The Elf Forest? We'd better be careful there.
Act 1 Boss Arriving Animation - vs. Iron Blood Cherron
Reesa: This is where the map said to go, but--
??? (Cherron): STOP!
Reesa: Whaaaa?! Who's there?!
??? (Cherron): That's my question! What are you doing here?
Reesa: We have a mission to-- Eep!
Reesa: I almost blabbed about why we're here.
Reesa: But there may be soldiers from the other nations around here.
Reesa: You-know-who wouldn't be pleased if we let our secret slip again.
Reesa: I guess we'll just have to keep our lips sealed.
??? (Cherron): Not in the mood to explain?
??? (Cherron): Very well. I hope [you're] prepared for pain!
Act 2 Start Animation - The Deep Woods
??? (Cherron): Hm. You're quite skilled with that sword of yours. The Gearsmith chose well. You pass.
Reesa: Blimey! We went all-out and she's acting like it's nothing!
Cherron: I am Cherron, of the Maquina army.
Cherron: I heard about you. But I wasn't sure I could trust you.
Reesa: You were testing us?
Cherron: Sorry. I didn't want to tell you about the mission until I was sure you could fight.
Cherron: Make sure to keep up--
Cherron: We're going deeper into the Elf Forest. Your job is to protect me from the monsters in the forest.
Reesa: What's in the forest that's so important?
Cherron: An elf village.
Act 2 Boss Arriving Animation - vs. Death Fist Selma
Reesa: I'm gonna see some elves!
Cherron: You look quite pleased-- with the situation, I mean.
Reesa: Well, I've never seen elves before.
Reesa: They have pointy ears and are really beautiful, right? And have really, really big-- hearts.
Cherron: And they're skilled at magic.
Cherron: They've been attacked by the three Nations many times and yet they [are] still independent.
Cherron: And now--
Cherron: It seems someone's here to welcome us.
Elf (Selma): You are penetrating elven territory. Will you leave peacefully?
Reesa: Captain, look! A real elf! She really does have pointy ears! And she's SO pretty!
Reesa: And she's got a great big sickle too! I thought elves used magic?
Elf (Selma): There do seem to be a lot of humans who stereotype elves as using magic or bows.
Elf (Selma): So, human, do you think you can beat me when it comes to muscle?
Reesa: Huh? She's readying her weapon? I thought elves were nice and stuff!
Cherron: Perhaps she's not your typical elf?
Cherron: Respond with force. But do not kill her.
Selma: My name is Death Fist Selma, and you seem to be underestimating me.
Selma: Give me a good fight, or I'll send you to your grave!
Chapter 5 - MonsterEdit
Act 1 Start Animation - The Elf's Plea
Elf (Pastora): Down, human!
Reesa: Blimey! Another elf!
Cherron: The youngest of the three elf sisters, Pastora, the Black Rose, perhaps?
Cherron: I am Cherron, of Maquina. I wish to see your leader.
Pastora: How DARE you ask for a favor after wounding my sister?
Selma: Wounded? You mean me?
Selma: Don't worry about that. I was playing with them to test my skills.
Pastora: I know THAT! Just be quiet, Selma!
Selma: Why must you be like this?
Pastora: Anyway! If you want to see my sister, you'll have to make her an offering.
Cherron: What sort of offering?
Pastora: A monster is loose in the western part of the forest.
Pastora: Kill it and then you can see our leader.
Cherron: Very well. We'll go immediately.
Selma: Wait, you mean THAT thing?
Selma: You really are mean.
Pastora: Just be quiet, Selma!
Selma: You're such a bully!
Act 1 Boss Arriving Animation - vs. Evil Eye Medusa
Reesa: Is this where the monster's supposed to be? I-- don't like this.
Cherron: I've never hunted a monster before. Though Kasana will probably invite me before long.
Cherron: Something's coming! Get down!
Monster (Medusa): Grr.
Cherron: A Medusa?! Crap! Don't look at its eyes, or--!
Reesa: Blimey! Cherron! You're-- turning to stone?!
Cherron: Never mind about me! Don't look at its eyes! It'll turn you to stone!
Medusa: More humans! Friends of that warrior!
Medusa: No mere human could defeat me! You shall ALL turn to stone!
Act 2 Start Animation - Follow the Beast
Medusa: Curses. I don't believe this!
Reesa: The Medusa ran away-- Cherron!
Reesa: Oh no! What do we do?! Her whole lower body is stone now!
Pastora: Pursue the Medusa. Kill it to lift the curse.
Reesa: When did you get here?! And you saw all that!
Pastora: It doesn't matter to me either way, but you'd better hurry if you want to save your friend.
Reesa: Captain! We have to hurry!
Reesa: Hey! Elf-jerk-girl! Watch Cherron while we're gone!
Pastora: And off they go.
Pastora: Now, what should I do with you?
Cherron: They're much, much too kind--
Cherron: They won't abandon or betray friends, so they don't expect it from anyone else.
Cherron: Isn't it strange that they're pirates?
Pastora: Very strange.
Act 2 Boss Arriving Animation - vs. Buccaneer Rosa
Reesa: We should be there soon.
Reesa: What was that?! It sounded like-- the Medusa?
Reesa: Captain, let's go!
Medusa: My eyes--? MY EYES!
Buccaneer Rosa: Me moniker be Buccaneer Rosa and me face be th' last thin' ye gunna see!
Buccaneer Rosa: Ye look too human to be a proper monster.
Buccaneer Rosa: Can ye still fight? It don't look like it. Not in th' state ye're in. Such a disappointment.
Medusa: A-- A human beat me?! That's-- not possible--
Buccaneer Rosa: It don't matter if ye're human or a monster.
Buccaneer Rosa: I be strong, ye're weak. That's it.
Reesa: No way-- She took out the Medusa, just like that?!
Buccaneer Rosa: Avast! I didn't expect to run into other humans in 'tis forest.
Buccaneer Rosa: Or maybe ye're another monster wit' human form? Let's be off wit' that.
Buccaneer Rosa: Blowin' that medusa down wasn't even a challenge. I wonder if ye'll be any better.
Reesa: H-Hey! Stop! There's no reason for us to fight!
Buccaneer Rosa: Th' strong have th' right to cut low th' weak.
Buccaneer Rosa: If ye don't like it, tough.
Reesa: This isn't good, Captain. I've never seen someone so impressive!
Buccaneer Rosa: Be ye ready to die?
Chapter 6 - Rescue MissionEdit
Act 1 Start Animation - The Elven Chief
Reesa: *pant* What the hell--?
Buccaneer Rosa: Arrr! Not bad!
Buccaneer Rosa: Ye can't be done yet. I was finally havin' a ruckas!
Reesa: Ugh-- She's a monster.
??? (Pearl): That's enough! Both of you!
Reesa: An elf? Who's there?
Buccaneer Rosa: So Pearl, th' elf chief, be here by herself?
Pearl: They are guests of the elves. If you continue fighting, you will have to fight every elf in this village.
Pastora: Do you really think you can take us all on, Rosa?
Selma: You may be strong, but combined we are stronger.
Buccaneer Rosa: All for me? I'm flattered, though not impressed.
Pearl: I know full well what you are capable of as Five Tigress General.
Buccaneer Rosa: That's right, Pearl! Keep gatherin' fools to fight me 'n maybe some day ye'll find a person who can actually challenge me.
Buccaneer Rosa: But fer this day, I'll leave ye forest. Ye can deal wit' these scurvy dogs.
Reesa: Thank goodness.
Pearl: We're not done with you.
Pearl: Your friend, Cherron, was captured.
Pastora: It was my fault.
Pastora: I don't like humans, but I'll help you search.
Pastora: I can track the culprit's footprints. Come!
Act 1 Boss Arriving Animation - vs. Middin the Miserable
Pastora: Here we are. They should be on the other side of this slope.
Pastora: The woman who abducted your friend is called Middin.
Pastora: Humans from the Magical Nation are quite strong. Don't let your eyes deceive you. Come on.
Reesa: What's with you? You're being really-- nice.
Pastora: I just don't want to owe any debts to humans.
Pastora: This is as far as I will go. Sanctus and the elves do have an alliance. The Magic Nation would not be please[d] if I interfere[d].
Reesa: I see. We'll do what we can. Thanks for showing us the way!
Reesa: Hey! Stop!
Middin: Who are you?!
Reesa: Just some pirates who happened to be in the neighborhood.
Reesa: We'l be taking all your possessions, and the pretty girl! BWAHAHA!
Middin: So, you're friends of hers?
Middin: Fine. She was a bit tight-lipped anyway.
Middin: I'll strike you down and then you'll talk!
Act 2 Start Animation - Savior of Maquina
Reesa: Let's get out of here!
Middin: Wh-- No, you're not getting away. Not a chance!
Reesa: Haha! Just try and catch us!
Cherron: Thanks to you the curse has lifted.
Cherron: Let's head to the elf village to talk to the head elf.
Pearl: No need. I'm right here.
Reesa: Whaaaa?! Pearl!
Cherron: So you're the Elf Chief?
Cherron: I am Cherron. I come bearing a message from the Gearsmith.
Cherron: The Mech Nation of Maquina wishes to form an alliance with the elves.
Pearl: Well, that is interesting. You do know of our alliance with Sanctus, right?
Pearl: And Maquina is a nation that burns our forests and pollutes our waters.
Pearl: What could you offer us elves who live in harmony with nature?
Cherron: Maquina does not burn all of the forests.
Cherron: You are in a sense a breakwater. That's how I see it.
Pearl: Words are easy to come by.
Cherron: War is coming.
Cherron: An unprecedented war that will engulf this continent.
Cherron: Join us, and I can promise Maquina will not pluck a single flower from your forest.
Cherron: We are sincere. You don't have to answer now.
Pearl: What did you say your name was?
Cherron: My name is Cherron. I am aide to General Kasana of Maquina.
Pastora: Sister! Sanctus soldiers are coming this way!
Cherron: If we stay any longer we'll only cause you problems. We will take our leave now.
Reesa: Are you done talking? We
'd need to head back to Maquina!
Cherron: I believe they plan to pursue us. We need to lose them.
Act 2 Boss Arriving Animation - vs. Middin the Miserable 2
Reesa: Did we shake them?
Reesa: Cherron, wanna come with us and grab a meal?
Cherron: That sounds lovely, but I must start my mission to search for the book of knowledge.
Reesa: The book of knowledge?
Cherron: I heard you met the seer Zahar.
Cherron: She [prophesied] the fall of Maquina.
Reesa: The fall of Maquina?!
Cherron: It is a top secret matter, known only to a few.
Cherron: To avert this prophecy, we are seeking the book of knowledge, also known as the Acheron Tome.
Cherron: The Acheron Tome contains knowledge of the past, present, and future. It is our only hope for our nation.
Reesa: Blimey! Is there really a magic book like that?
Cherron: All we know is, the Pirate Queen supposedly has it.
Reesa: Okay-- But is it okay for you to tell us about something that important?
Cherron: It's fine. After all, you received your Letter of Marque from the Gearsmith.
Cherron: That means you're on our side.
Middin: I would like to hear more about that book.
Reesa: Whaaaa?! You followed us!
Middin: I said I wouldn't let you get away. This time why don't you save us all the trouble and surrender.
Chapter 7 - The InvitedEdit
Act 1 Start Animation - The Three Generals
Reesa: Haven't seen this place in a while.
Reesa: I think something's going on though--
Cherron: Let's try asking some townsfolk.
Cherron: Apparently a woman in strange clothes is causing trouble.
Reesa: Strange clothes?
??? (Jillian): Never mind the foreigners.
Cherron: General Jillian?!
Jillian: And those must be the pirates I've heard so much about.
Jillian: I am suppressing insurgents. Assist me.
Reesa: What's with her, acting all high and mighty!
Cherron: That's Jillian Flare. She's one of the three Generals who lead the army of Maquina.
Cherron: During the last war she captured one of Bellator's Five Tigress Generals, so they call her the "Tiger Hunter."
Cherron: And she may look young, but she's much older than you or I.
Cherron: Yes ma'am!
Jillian: Return to your mistress. Kasana is getting rather testy without you around.
Cherron: My mistress--? Yes ma'am. Immediately.
Jillian: And as for you pirates, come with me!
Act 1 Boss Arriving Animation - vs. Noble Inanna
Reesa: So where are we going?
Jillian: I require your help subduing the stranger causing trouble in this town.
??? (Inanna): Where is the battlefield?!
??? (Inanna): And you are? I am Inanna! I demand to know where my brother is! Where is he?!
Reesa: I've never seen anyone dressed like that before.
Reesa: And I don't really understand what she's saying either--
Inanna: Who are you?! What kind of indecent person are you to show so much bare skin[?]!
Reesa: This is, like, the height of fashion!
Inanna: Gah! I know not these words you speak!
Inanna: Get out of my way! I must find my brother!
Act 2 Start Animation - Magic Talisman
Inanna: Urgh-- Your weapons are so strange and impressive --
Reesa: Well, we caught her. Where did you come from?
Inanna: Never mind that! I must return!
Reesa: So-- no idea?
Jillian: Well, she does have this.
Reesa: A charm?
Jillian: So, where did you get this?
Inanna: I held it when I awakened.
Inanna: When I woke up I was on the ship. Yet, I have no memory of boarding a ship!
Jillian: I see.
Jillian: This is a Hellroad Charm. It's something gypsies use.
Jillian: I've heard it can summon a person from another world.
Reesa: So she's from another world?
Jillian: I can't imagine she's a gypsy, so someone else brought her here.
Jillian: And we may have a lead. To the ship!
Act 2 Boss Arriving Animation - vs. Orient Assassin Sasha
Sanctus Pirate: Sasha! Th' next boat be ready now!
Sasha: The charms are ready.
Sasha: Time to set sail. Next we head for Bellator.
Sanctus Pirate: But it be a strange request.
Sanctus Pirate: We're supposed to use charms to mess up a bunch 'o ships?
Sasha: Aye. But I'm suspicious about the supposed size of the reward. I've never encountered one as big and impressive as this one.
Sasha: I have a bad feeling about this. Let's get it over with. I've got better things to do.
Reesa: Hold it right there!
Jillian: That was a rather interesting conversation.
Sanctus Pirate: S-Sasha-- what do we do?!
Sasha: First of all, don't panic.
Sasha: We have the means to dash their ship on the rocks!
