Asterios' Character Quest: Out of the Labyrinth for Everyone


Location: Shinjuku Station Southeast Entrance


The crowded underground city of Shinjuku, filled with bustling activity.

There are an infinite variety of statures and appearances of the "Transients" residing in Tokyo, it is as if it's a wave of colored water.

Although the hustle and bustle was spectacular, the pace of things was quite fast.

To enjoy shopping here, one is required to have experience and resilience.

One such giant was going against the flow. They are standing still without mingling with the crowds of people.


Asterios expression sad.png

Ah, there are so many people here in the underground city......

Asterios expression neutral.png

T-Those strange guys here in Tokyo love to g-gather in an underground place such as this......

Asterios expression sad.png

I'm...... s-still not good with crowds of people......
I should hurry and finish shopping then head back home......

Asterios expression neutral.png

I wonder what I should make today.
I haven't put much thought on it actually......

Asterios expression sad.png

........

Asterios expression smile.png

I-It'd be nice if.......
Someone would decide that for me.


1 option
Is that you, Asterios?


Asterios expression neutral.png

Oh...... It's you, [Player]. I-It's a weird coincidence to see you in a place like this......


2 options
It really is a coincidence. I came looking for you, Asterius.
Asterios expression sad.png

You're incredible...... Despite that, there are so many people here.
I just want to finish my business and go home already......

Asterios expression embarrassed.png

Y-You were looking for me......? T-That must be a lie......


2 options (Same Response)
What are you doing here, Asterius? You kinda stick out from the crowd.


Asterios expression neutral.png

I-I came to buy a vase.
L-Look, I want to put this branch in it.


That said, Asterius showed [Player] a branch of a gajumaru tree.


Asterios expression sad.png

O-Online shopping...... isn't possible.
T-They have a hard time coming to the mountain......

Asterios expression neutral.png

I-It's okay to make fun of me if you think it's weird.
I only want to decorate this little branch......

Asterios expression neutral.png

O-One day, when I woke up on the mountains, it was stuck to my clothes.

Asterios expression sad.png

B-But I can't throw it away for some reason. I-It's really odd.

Asterios expression embarrassed.png

I-I feel like it's something precious to me......

Asterios expression smile.png

Oh right, [Player].
Do you...... Is there anything you want to eat?


2 options (Same Response)
Are you offering me something? I do feel somewhat hungry.


Asterios expression surprised.png

Ah, no, it's different......!
I'm not inviting you or anything.

Asterios expression embarrassed.png

Umm...... I don't mind eating with you though......

Asterios expression neutral.png

Err...... Do you want to eat something with me......


2 options
Come on, it's okay. It's great to be with you, Asterius.
Asterios expression embarrassed.png

......! Y-You really are a funny guy......


Asterios expression smile.png

Oh, that's good...... B-But, I can cook by the way......

Asterios expression neutral.png

................

Asterios expression embarrassed.png

W-Weird. W-Why are you...... pressing hard on me......?

Asterios expression neutral.png

Up until now, whenever someone like Taurus Mask does that to me, I'd get so furious -

Asterios expression surprised.png

... Eh!?

Flashback to the destroyed banyan house from GoGo

Asterios expression surprised.png

What...... What was that just now......?


An island that he never saw before, a tree he never saw before, both crosses Asterius' mind.


Asterios expression surprised.png

............


Asterios is dumbfounded that he forgot about it. Then, at that moment -


Slimes: Purupurupuruuuuuuu!!

Asterios expression surprised.png

E-Eeeeeeeh!? A-A surprise attack is a cowardly thing to do!


2 options (Same Response)
We're surrounded! Let's get out of here, Asterius!


Asterios expression smile.png

O-Okay, got it......!

Asterios expression neutral.png

...... T-They chased after us......!


2 options (Same Response)
Get ready, Asterius! There's so many of them!


Asterios expression anger.png

I have no choice then......! Don't get separated from me, [Player]!

Asterios expression anger.png

Nobody approaches! Nobody gets in!

Asterios expression 4star.png

Labrus Labyrinthus!!


"Distance" exceeded reality; it becomes distorted and warped. The surroundings became more and more distant.

Keeping all the interference at bay, it separates Asterios from the world.


Asterios expression surprised.png

[Player]! Hand-


Unfortunately, the hand reached out cannot reach them.

Before the distance extended violently, the two were separated from each other.

[Transitioning...]


Location: ???


They regain their senses and observe the darkness spreading.

A stone-wall that is far from being broken blocks out the light, a gloomy situation where it eats away the feelings from the lungs.

There is no sign of life. Only their own breathing noises echoed in their earlobes; loneliness stood out here.

They are experiencing complete isolation here. That is what they can understand.

Their legs and feet involuntarily moves on their own from the intense pressure of not being around anyone.

The wall warps.

They went on their way. Even so, there is nothing but loneliness.

There isn't warmth from any living being. Not even the coldness of the dead.

Loneliness is almost the same as emptiness.


Asterios expression sad.png


It was something familiar to them. How does such a thing press hard against their heart?

No matter how much they went on, there is still nobody around.

Succumbing to such loneliness- ...... then, "that person" came.


Asterios expression surprised.png

Aaah...... [Player]! Y-You're okay! That's a relief......!

Asterios expression sad.png

Are you alright...... You're not cold, are you?
You must've been scared...... You don't have to worry anymore.


3 options
Asterios! I'm alright! (Frantically hug him)
Asterios expression surprised.png

A-Ah...... Yes, it's me, Asterios.

Asterios expression sad.png

Are you surprised by how things look?
S-Sorry about that......

Asterios expression smile.png

I see, that's good...... You are one tough guy.

Asterios expression surprised.png

U-Uh...... W-What...... That smell......

Asterios expression embarrassed.png

.........

Asterios expression smile.png

...... There there, you're gonna be alright, nobody else will come close to you.
You must've been scared......


Asterios expression neutral.png

We got attacked all the sudden......
T-Tokyo is still a scary place as ever......

Asterios expression neutral.png

W-Well...... We were doing an App Battle.
There will be things such as this......

Asterios expression neutral.png

"I remembered" that this Labyrinth is my "Sacred Artifact."

Asterios expression sad.png

Things happened so suddenly...... I couldn't explain things beforehand, sorry......

Asterios expression neutral.png

You'll be safe if you escape from this place......
This place is meant to isolate me.

Asterios expression neutral.png

But...... I can't control this "Sacred Artifact" anymore......

Asterios expression sad.png

Sorry...... It's all because of me honestly......


2 options
Close the App then? Don't worry, we'll work something out.
Asterios expression sad.png

I-It's useless.
I tried closing the app, but it wouldn't return to what it was before.

Asterios expression smile.png

Y-Yeah...... I'm with you, it will work out......


Asterios expression surprised.png

It's possible that......
T-The Underground City has become a "Closed Area."

Asterios expression neutral.png

In a such location,
even if the "App" is closed, the outcomes caused by the "Rule" will remain......

Asterios expression neutral.png

T-The gate shutter probably came down at night......

Asterios expression neutral.png

I-I invoke the labyrinth, but I cannot destroy it.

Asterios expression sad.png

If I want to leave this place...... I'll have to do it on my own.

Asterios expression sad.png

I-I never had to deal with such a thing till now......

Asterios expression neutral.png

But...... Until I break out,
I am still responsible for looking after someone.

Asterios expression neutral.png

I think I could break out of it overnight, maybe.
T-That's why......

Asterios expression smile.png

I will be doing my best "again" ...... since I'm with you, right?

Asterios expression surprised.png

T-That's weird......
We went the wrong way...... in my own labyrinth......

Asterios expression surprised.png

It was supposed to be this direction...... But......

Asterios expression neutral.png

T-That's too bad......
S-Sorry, it seems this labyrinth steadily changes its structure.


2 options
We can't get out then......? Don't give up, we'll find another way!
Asterios expression anger.png

A-Ah...... No, i-it's gonna be okay......!

Asterios expression smile.png

I'll stay by your side...... I promise......!

Asterios expression neutral.png

Right...... We'll come together with the direction itself......
If we get closer to the exit, it should be there......


Asterios expression neutral.png

Wh... What are you doing?
It's impossible to destroy the labyrinth with a sword like that......

Asterios expression neutral.png

You just want to test it out......?
I see...... Well, it's not bad to try out different things.

Asterios expression neutral.png

I-It's a dead end here too......

Asterios expression smile.png

There is still no way back......


2 options
This is a little fun, no? You're still doing great.
Asterios expression smile.png

I-Is that right......? It may...... certainly be so......

Asterios expression smile.png

W-Well, this labyrinth is kinda like my own home.
You...... I will use my strength for you.


Asterios expression neutral.png

........ Ah. I...... should tell you the truth.

Asterios expression smile.png

I...... I'm having fun right now.

Asterios expression neutral.png

It's so strange......
I'm weird for having fun during times like this.

Asterios expression smile.png

I-I...... I don't know why but,
I can say that I'm glad to have met you.

Asterios expression smile.png

I-It was nice to...... meet e-everyone.

Asterios expression surprised.png

Hu...... Huh?

Asterios expression surprised.png

Who is...... everyone?

Asterios expression embarrassed.png

Oh...... I said something weird.
F-Forget it...... It's embarrassing......

Asterios expression embarrassed.png

O-Oh right...... We should hurry or we'll end up spending the night here......

Asterios expression neutral.png

Agh, we walked for a very long time......
Is it getting that late already......? (Biological clock)

Asterios expression neutral.png

I guess we'll need to spend the night here......
We'll be safe since...... there is no one else here......


2 options
That's enough for today. I'm bushed.
Asterios expression smile.png

O-Oh...... Yeah, this is enough for today, [Player]......
We're exhausted from walking on the paths I'm not familiar with.

Asterios expression neutral.png

Is that right...... Sorry. It's all because of me......

Asterios expression smile.png

If you can't walk any more, then I'll carry you on my back......
If anything, I'm fairly strong, so......


Asterios expression embarrassed.png

U-Um...... Can I...... Can I get a little closer to you?


That said, the giant covered in fur closed the distance between them.

Touching shoulder to shoulder, he feels relieved to know that he's not alone.


Asterios expression embarrassed.png

A-Aren't you cold......? If so, then...... Umm......

Asterios expression surprised.png

....... Ah.

Asterios expression embarrassed.png

The truth is...... I wanted to get close to you.

Asterios expression embarrassed.png

I...... I never thought I'd be with someone in the labyrinth......

Asterios expression smile.png

When you're next to me, it really helps me calm down......


3 options
I agree, Asterius. (Nod your head) (Get even closer to him)
Asterios expression smile.png

I see...... That's nice......
Eheh, you're warm.

Asterios expression surprised.png

.......!

Asterios expression embarrassed.png

..............

Asterios expression smile.png

........ Eheheh.


Asterios expression neutral.png

Ah...... That's right. I'm a little hungry......

Asterios expression neutral.png

After we get out of here, I'll cook as much food as you want......

Asterios expression embarrassed.png

I've been living by myself for such a long time......
Cooking is the least I can do......

Asterios expression smile.png

For that reason...... I will do my best tomorrow as well.


Leaning against his fur, they fell asleep.

It was a cold labyrinth. They're only here by his side.

...... He was very warm.


Asterios expression island sad.png

Parting ways makes me feel lonely...... But, this is goodbye!


(Is that...... me?)


Asterios expression island happy.png

E-Even if I forget, I will see everyone again......
That's what I believe so...... I'm looking forward to it!


("Everyone" ...... "Everyone" ......)

....... Who are they?


Asterios expression neutral.png

I can't...... see the exit.

Asterios expression sad.png

We've been walking ever since we woke up......
Yet it looks like it's still further ahead......

Asterios expression neutral.png

(What a strange dream yesterday. I wonder what that was......)


1 option
Asterios?


Asterios expression smile.png

Oh...... Nothing. I was just dozing off for a bit.

Asterios expression neutral.png

But...... Why does the structure change like that......

Asterios expression sad.png

I-It's as if......
The labyrinth is telling us it won't let us go.

Asterios expression embarrassed.png

Saying stuff like that is making you feel uneasy...... Forget what I said.

Asterios expression neutral.png

D-Do you know of Taurus Mask?

Asterios expression neutral.png

T-That guy's "strings" of his "Sacred Artifact" will not take the "Rule" of this labyrinth.

Asterios expression neutral.png

T-This "labyrinth" is below his "strings"
because the hierarchy is connected with the original world......

Asterios expression sad.png

It'd be nice if he was there...... But I don't want that guy to be there sometimes......

Asterios expression neutral.png

Oh, [Player]. We're turning at the next corner.


Turning at the corner, they then walked down the path. Asterios' arms gently touched them.

It's probably not your imagination that he's sticking closer to you than yesterday.

When they made eye contact, he turned away in embarrassment.


Asterios expression embarrassed.png

Oh, umm...... What will you do if you can't go home......?

Asterios expression neutral.png

Food might be a problem......
Well...... Since it's just the two of us......

Asterios expression smile.png

We could sleep together, just like yesterday......

Asterios expression embarrassed.png

I-I said something weird again......
I've been acting funny ever since yesterday......

Asterios expression embarrassed.png

Maybe I'm just a little happier than usual......


2 options (Same Response)
You do seem a little happy. We should still get home regardless.


Asterios expression neutral.png

T-That's right......
Staying here in this place makes me feel depressed.

Asterios expression neutral.png

It should be at least be...... a warm and well-lit place.
We wouldn't need to worry about food either......

Asterios expression smile.png

I'll probably stay with you...... If it was a fun place......

Asterios expression sad.png

Yet...... You still want to go back home......

Asterios expression neutral.png

..........

Asterios expression surprised.png

H-Huh......?

Asterios expression neutral.png

I'm sure this situation is...... just like before......

Asterios expression neutral.png

You said you wanted to go home......
A-And...... I was hoping it would stay like this......

Asterios expression neutral.png

It's the same situation now......

Asterios expression surprised.png

....... Ah.

Asterios expression neutral.png

...... Oh, that's right. I...... Ah, this is......

Asterios expression smile.png

This is what I wanted.


2 options (Same Response)
So basically, what changed the structure of this labyrinth was- You yourself?


Asterios expression sad.png

Yep...... I truly am sorry......

Asterios expression neutral.png

U-Umm...... You may not remember but I......
I remembered most of it......

Asterios expression neutral.png

You and I...... W-We were living together.

Asterius:( face)
I think there was someone else besides you......
But I can't remember clearly......

Asterius:( face)
But, you and I went fishing together and we even slept together.

Asterios:( face)
I was so happy...... staying on that small island......
I only remember that much.

Asterios:( face)
It's the same as that time on the island......
Now I am very happy. I'm hoping the time I spend with you goes on forever.

Asterios expression neutral.png

Therefore, the "Sacred Artifact" responded to my feelings......
To not let you escape...... It changes the structure......

Asterios expression surprised.png

The labyrinth itself isn't controlling over me.
I am trapping you here in this labyrinth!

Asterios expression sad.png

Eh... Eheheh...... I'm so sorry......

Asterios expression sad.png

I caused you so much trouble......
You must see me as a terrible guy......


2 options (Same Response)
(Shake your head sideways in disagreement) (Deny it then get closer to him)


Asterios expression surprised.png

.........!

Asterios expression embarrassed.png

Th...... Thank you......

Asterios expression smile.png

Hehe, I really enjoy spending time with you......
My goal has been achieved......

Asterios expression neutral.png

So...... Can we..... escape?

Asterios expression neutral.png

...... Why are you giving that look?
I'm sure it'll be easy......


The minute he said that, Asterios brandishes the axe that he carries on his back.

A gigantic axe that seems impossible to handle unless it was someone as strong as Asterios.

With no hesitation, he swung down vigorously.


Asterios expression 4star.png

T-This won't be a problem!


Causing an ear-deafening sound, the labyrinth, which seemed sturdy, has a hole made on it.


Asterios expression anger.png

Hah...... Hah...... Okay!
Get going, before the wall fixes itself......!


Asterios' large hand reached out, taking them with him.

Every time Asterios destroys the wall, the labyrinth's wall regenerates.

That is the opposite of his feelings of being with them. He can't do it by himself. His feelings of love were too much to bear.

That is, Asterios himself breaks down and proceeds. The feelings he developed on the island acted as a source of encouragement.

He can't remember it clearly, but it was certainly breathing in him.

Indeed, Asterios puts his belief in the "memories of the labyrinth" more than anyone else.

Asterios said that "he will never leave from this place." By that belief, he can never leave.

On the other hand, that "belief" was shattered on that island.

"I will never leave the labyrinth, absolutely not." That belief became no more.


Asterios expression neutral.png

I noticed it by now......
There are people I want to see more than I want to stay here.

Asterios expression smile.png

That's the reason why you wanted to go home from that island......
Now I understand......

Asterios expression neutral.png

When I met you for the first time,
I finally realized how lonely I was.

Asterios expression sad.png

I want to stay with you forever......
But...... But I......!

Asterios expression embarrassed.png

I want to see everyone again!

Asterios expression sad.png

I-I really don't want to forget them......!
It will be terrible if I don't remember them!


Without letting go of the axe in hand, Asterios broke the wall with one hand.


Asterios expression smile.png

Take me out again just like the time before!
Take me...... Take me outside!

Asterios expression sad.png

You can't stop here......! I don't want to be left alone here......!

Asterios expression sad.png

Because, because...... I realized how lonely I am!

Asterios expression embarrassed.png

A-And then......! Once we escape, I, I-I......

Asterios expression embarrassed.png

I want you to be my friend again!


3 options (Same Response)
Of course! My pleasure! Asterios......


Asterios expression surprised.png

H-Huh? Is that the exit......!?

Asterios expression smile.png

We finally did it...... Finally......


They can see the light before their very eyes. The exit to the outside world gave them hope.

But then-


Slime: Purupurupuruuuuuuuuu!!

Asterios expression surprised.png

W-Why is there another living thing in this place other than myself!

Asterios expression neutral.png

Is it possible that the guys from yesterday got trapped here with us?

Asterios expression neutral.png

D-Damn...... This is not the situation to be saying such things.
Those guys are preventing us from leaving...... They're blocking us from the exit!

Asterios expression surprised.png

If we get separated, it'll be hard for us to see each other again!

Asterios expression anger.png

A quick attack will get them off our backs!

[Battle]



When the last one was defeated, the wall of the labyrinth tried to close in between the pair.


Asterios expression anger.png

Oryaaaaaah!!


Asterios' axe smashes the wall, strongly pulling it apart.


Asterios expression anger.png

This should be enough......! We just need to...... leave!


The exit close to them feels far away from them. Nonetheless, the pair made a run for it to the exit.

However, leaving would mean they can't be alone together anymore.

His feelings to meeting up with everyone again was never a lie. In fact, he felt happy from the current situation.

For that reason, there is a mere shadow within Asterios' heart.

The labyrinth responds quickly to what was hidden, the walls tries to hide away the exit.


Asterios expression anger.png

This is......!


The walls whittled a little from Asterios' brave, strong arms.

The stretched wall hides the exit solidified its will to keep them from leaving the labyrinth.

Because of that, it's the opposite of loneliness that Asterios possesses. Strong and bulky, terrified of the outside world.

All he can do himself is to push it down. Hide it away and shut the lid.


Asterios expression neutral.png

You...... Go on ahead.

Asterios expression neutral.png

I...... I'm doing this for the sole purpose of confining you.

Asterios expression neutral.png

If you escape...... I think the labyrinth will soon calm down.

Asterios expression sad.png

I'm sorry to have put you through all of this.
But, if we meet again outside...... I......


1 option
Even so......


Asterios expression surprised.png

Eh?


A hand reached out and grasped Asterios and tried to pull him closer even if they're not as strong.

It's not enough to move the heavy giant, but they certainly reached out to the lonely bull's heart.


2 options (Same Response)
Come on! (Make eye contact with Asterius)
2 options (Same Response)
We're getting out of here, together! We're coming outside!


Asterios expression surprised.png

Y-You.......


They never drew him in by force. Not at all.

But, their consideration for Asterios' feelings has surely moved him.


2 options (Same Response)?
We're escaping together - Asterios!


Moved by their feelings, Asterios' feet kicked off the ground of the labyrinth.


Asterios expression sad.png

Ah, I...... I want to be with you......!

[Transitioning...]


Location: Shinjuku West Gate


Asterios expression smile.png

...... We managed to escape somehow.

Asterios expression sad.png

You must've been annoyed by now...... I'm s-sorry.

Asterios expression neutral.png

I think my feelings have been sorted out considerably now......
I don't think it would happen again.


2 options
Keep holding my hand. Wanna keep holding them?
Asterios expression embarrassed.png

Oh...... Wouldn't that be bad?

Asterios expression embarrassed.png

M-Maybe for a little longer......

Asterios expression embarrassed.png

Yeah...... I want to hold them still......


Asterios expression embarrassed.png

Fr...... Friends......


2 options (Same Response)
Yeah. (Personally I’m interested in something more than that...)


Asterios expression smile.png

Eheheh...... Friends, friends......


The two of them left from the underground city, and were greeted by the busy streets of Tokyo.


Asterios expression embarrassed.png

It's...... It's wonderful......


There is a towering wall over in that direction.

If Asterius desired it, "there would be no walls that cannot be destroyed."

Of course, that's if the people of Tokyo believe in it. Suddenly, at that moment -


Asterios expression embarrassed.png

...... Ah.


The two of them are very hungry at the moment.


Asterios expression smile.png

Ha, haha...... that's embarrassing.
...... Hey, [Player]......

Asterios expression neutral.png

T-Today...... was a long day......

Asterios expression neutral.png

You should take a bath then have something to eat...... Okay?

Asterios expression embarrassed.png

So...... Don't you want to come by my home......?

Asterios expression smile.png

Really, I was serious about...... cooking.
If you happen to be free then...... let's go look -

Asterios expression happy.png

for "everyone" ......
