Episode 1: The Tigers Swear Vengeance
Location: Shinjuku~Ikebukuro?

---After school, in the late afternoon.
At a detective office located in Shinjuku Kabukichou.

Nomad expression anger.png

Oi, [Player]!
Don't tail me for today's case okay?

Yes, this is the detective office, where Nomad has rented with a high fee.


3 options
I just want to help out with your work. But we already confined a summon contract--- Why are you strangely cold, even when we signed a contract?

Nomad expression neutral.png

......

Nomad expression sad.png

A contract is a contract.
At this point I'll follow.

Nomad expression anger.png

However my personal business is another problem.
Please don't step into my territory okay, master?


3 options
But you will let me help you from back then? As a security guard at the live--- Geez, that was arduous.

Nomad expression surprised.png

A-anyways---!
Only for this job, it's a NO.

Nomad expression anger.png

Please understand.
I have my own reason.

Nomad expression neutral.png

......so, I'm going out for the job now.
Return the office keys at the usual spot when you leave.

Nomad expression anger.png

I said, don't follow me okay!?


2 options
Follow him Of course, follow him

Nomad expression neutral.png

Where do you think you're going?
Master?

Nomad expression anger.png

DO-NOT-FOLLOW-ME!!
Bye-bye!


1 option
I've lost track of Nomad.

Magan expression neutral.png

Yo, isn't this [player].
What are you doing here, at this place(Ikebukuro guild)?

Magan expression joy.png

Oh right oh right!
Finally, you want us to eat each other?


1 option
I'm finding Nomad.

Magan expression surprised.png

Nomad?
My Nomad(brother), what happened to him?

Magan expression sad.png

Hmm......I can't help but to be interested.
Ok, I got it! It's interesting, so tell me! OK?

Magan expression sad.png

I see......He said he went for a case,
you followed, and lost him around here.

Magan expression joy.png

Gahahaha, it can't be helped right!
Nomad(brother) is a shy guy.


3 options
I confined a contract with him for a while already--- But he still seems distant. Should I say he's trying to hide his true thoughts from me---

Magan expression surprised.png

If you think about it for a little, it goes without saying.
You know what I mean right? [Player].

Magan expression neutral.png

Something has happened to him in the past.
Well if you're a "Tenkousei", it's usually the case.

Magan expression anger.png

If not, why would someone bother leaving their own world for another world?

Magan expression sad.png

He can't be blamed if he won't open your heart to you.
Nomad(brother) is a "tiger" afterall.

Magan expression anger.png

There's always a "tiger" living inside us.
"Devour your emotions", as it constantly yells.

Magan expression neutral.png

"Stay away from me", as it threatens.
So to sum up---

Magan expression joy.png

He's just scared.
Cute isn't he.


2 options
He looks like a tiger afterall. It's scary......

Magan expression surprised.png

No, [Player]. I'm not talking about his appearance,
how do I put it---I mean it's about the soul.

Magan expression neutral.png

There's a "tiger" living in one's soul.
It's in me and him---inside yours even.

Magan expression anger.png

The "tiger" that devours emotions,
and the "human" which tames it coexists.

Magan expression sad.png

......

Magan expression neutral.png

In my opinion, by the time Nomad(brother) opens your heart,
it'll be when---

Magan expression anger.png

He recognizes you as a "tiger" as well......
Otherwise, he will always be alone.

Magan expression neutral.png

Even so......you're gonna chase after him?
To Nomad's(brother's) place.


1 option
I'm curious.

Magan expression neutral.png

Well, I dunno if you have a firm mind,
or just full of curiosity.

Magan expression sad.png

You just saw him passing by?
Gimme a sec. Hmm......

Magan's nose starts sniffing for Nomad's scent as he spoke.

Magan expression surprised.png

He sure is a detective,
he covered his trails neatly.

Magan expression sad.png

There were only small traces, along the end of this corridor.
It seems like it's leading deep into the underground.

Magan expression neutral.png

It's the same area where there are tons of prison cells like my room.

Magan expression sad.png

Claude said that it was used to connect to some old bombproof shelter of some sort.

Magan expression sad.png

Come to think of it, there's something appearing to be an old ward there as well.

Magan expression sad.png

By the feeling of the scent......
Was that a few months ago, or a dozen of minutes ago?


1 option
Isn't this assumption too sloppy?

Magan expression surprised.png

Ah, once you live here, you'll start losing the sense of time.

Magan expression neutral.png

As much as I want to tag along with you,
Nomad(brother) will be shy and run away.

Magan expression surprised.png

Ah?
Why can I tell that much?

Magan expression joy.png

Gahahaha! It's obvious, you know.
Me and him are basically the same!

Magan expression neutral.png

I won't say that area is safe,
but it doesn't have too many dangers.

Magan expression joy.png

Tread carefully!
I'm looking forward to your souveniers!

[Player] walked.
You kept walking along the corridor full of cells.

Same cells, same partitions,
almost like the arrangement of a prison.

The view is same no matter how you proceed.
It feels like looping in the same place over and over.

Silence fills the corridor.
Only your own footsteps can be heard rebounding, which only boosts fear.

As you strangely felt you have progressed but also no progress at all in the same time,
You advanced and---

Stopped in front of one room at the end, suddenly.

Nothing is different, it's the same cell you saw along the way.
However---your skin is shouting that there's something special.

You stepped inside the cell,
and at the very moment your foot touches the ground---

Your consciousness faded away unexpectedly.
It felt like many years had passed.

[Player] has woken up---
In the same cell he set foot in.

However there's something obviously different.
Which was---the noise around you.

Maniac laughter and painful weeping,
Endless noises could be heard from afar.

Who......
Where are you from......?

Suddenly a deep voice called out,
startling [Player].

Fearfully turning your head to the source---
The being inside the very cell was---Nomad.

Nomad naked expression anger.png

......Why is there a brat here?
Who......are you.


2 options
Who am I...... Are you kidding me?

Suddenly, the cell door swung opened.
Sturdy looking men which appeared to be guards showed up.

However, they ignored [Player].
They approached Nomad, forming a circle as they draw near.

Nomad also felt that something is not right.
Feeling puzzled, he spoke to the guards.

Nomad naked expression surprised.png

Hey?
Aren't you guys in the same gang......?

Somehow, the guards could not hear or see [Player].

They stood against Nomad as if nothing happened.

There was a sense of tension between them.

Nomad naked expression anger.png

Urgh......!

And then, the guards started to beat the defenseless Nomad,
Spitting dirty words as each hit blows.

Soon after Nomad was fully tortured,
the guards left the cell.

Nomad naked expression surprised.png

Wai......t, you guys......
you guys can't...... see him?

Nomad points to the other side of the room where [player] is located.

However, the guards exchanged a strange look to each other---

And threw a "that guy finally lost it" expression as they left.

Nomad naked expression surprised.png

---It seems......I'm really seeing an illusion here---haha.

Nomad naked expression anger.png

Finally I......
I've gone mad haven't I---

Nomad naked expression sad.png

Even if so......
It's---okay.

Nomad mumbled in a voice so soft it was almost inaudible.

Nomad naked expression neutral.png

Hey, you.
I don't care if you're Death or my illusion. I want to know something.

Nomad naked expression anger.png

One important thing.
Yes, just one thing.

Nomad naked expression neutral.png

Are you my ally?
You will not---betray me right?

In the gloomy cell where you can't see clearly,
Nomad stepped forword to only a few centimeters in front of you.

Even so---in this strange darkness,
you cannot see Nomad's face clearly.


2 options
I'm your ally. I'll not betray you, never!

Nomad naked expression joy.png

Ha,hahahahaha!
Very well! My ally! You're not gonna betray me!

Nomad naked expression neutral.png

......Ha, this is so stupid.
Why am I threatening my own illusion for---

Nomad naked expression anger.png

Isn't it like you(me) threatening yourself(myself)---

Nomad naked expression sad.png

Ah, even so it's okay.
I don't care anyways---

Nomad embraced [Player] as he spoke.

Nomad naked expression neutral.png

Ah......so weird......
it's......so warm.

Nomad naked expression sad.png

The warmth is so real......
Like the warmth of a person......I threw away......

Slow and steady.
As if he was trying to recognize such warmth.

Nomad naked expression neutral.png

Hey, [Mr/ Ms] illusion.
Can I......ask what's your name?

Nomad naked expression sad.png

Oh......it's called [Player].
Strange name.

Nomad naked expression anger.png

Seeing this face of mine and not bulge......
You got some balls here.

Nomad naked expression neutral.png

Usually when people sees this "tiger" face of mine,
They only show disgust.

Out of self-mockery, Nomad bursted out laughing.

Nomad naked expression neutral.png

......Haha, of course you're not scared.
You're my illusion, a reflection of "myself".

Nomad naked expression sad.png

Nice to meet, you. [Player].
my name is---

Nomad naked expression neutral.png

---Nomad.
Yes, call me Nomad.


3 options
Erm, I already know your name. What do you mean by "Nice to meet you"? You're acting like it's the first time seeing me---

Nomad naked expression surprised.png

It should be the first time.
Well, no point saying that to myself---

Nomad naked expression anger.png

Ah, cut it cut it!

Nomad naked expression sad.png

If I continue to call you "myself",
it'll make me notice that I've gone mad.

Nomad naked expression neutral.png

I'm going to treat you as someone else.
Got any problems?


1 option
OK.

Nomad naked expression neutral.png

Ah, good.
so firstly---be my talking companion.

Nomad naked expression neutral.png

Bored......yes.
Ahh, I've been bored for all these times.

Nomad naked expression sad.png

Since the day I was put in this underground prison,
til now---all the time.

Nomad naked expression neutral.png

I have tons of time to kill.
Although it tastes awful, I was fed.

Nomad naked expression neutral.png

If there's someone I can talk to,
this place is almost like heaven---

A long time has passed since that day.
Not days, weeks has passed.

[Player] had been taking to Nomad.
About him/herself, what has happened so far, everything---

In order to sooth his loneliness---
Nomad talked about himself, and everything about him.

Nomad naked expression joy.png

Haha, your stories are so interesting.
[Player], you can be a good Science Fiction writer.

Nomad naked expression joy.png

You allow me to forget my boredom.
Are you my Scheherazade?


3 options
As I remember, she was--- The storyteller of Thousand and One Nights. I'll tell you even more interesting stories tomorrow.

Nomad naked expression neutral.png

Ah, please. Tell me more stores---
Also, listen to mine.

Nomad naked expression neutral.png

......You know, [Player].

Nomad naked expression sad.png

I was accused of a crime which I can't remember.
I went to trial because of that.

Nomad naked expression sad.png

And now as you see,
I'm put behind bars in this underground prison.


3 options
Underground prison? So, this is underground. You've done something bad?

Nomad naked expression sad.png

......Bad things?
I wonder. I've tried recalling for too many times.

Nomad naked expression neutral.png

Fact is, I'm contained here.
In this gloomy prison.

Nomad naked expression neutral.png

This is a prison built from a natural cavern.
A prison of no escape, a modern Chateau d'If.

Nomad naked expression neutral.png

There's also an illegal hospital.
There are mad scientists who like human modification.

Nomad naked expression anger.png

They abandoned me.
---accused me.

Nomad naked expression neutral.png

I wish I could seek revenge, but the opponent is too strong.
I am weak.

Nomad naked expression neutral.png

Therefore, I'm in this prison for a long time.
And also, became a guinea pig for human modifications.

Nomad naked expression sad.png

I was put to sleep, and when I woke up I was modified into this ugly body.

Nomad naked expression anger.png

I will take revenge. I must.
I won't let it end like this.

Nomad naked expression neutral.png

The people who betrayed me, toyed with me,
Until I bring them to hell with my own hands---

Nomad naked expression anger.png

I will use the very fangs of the "tiger" they turned me to pierce through their own body.

Nomad naked expression neutral.png

I'll not forgive betrayal, "not even once".

Nomad naked expression neutral.png

Ahh, there's no one I can trust.
Because everyone will betray me in the end except myself---

Nomad naked expression anger.png

That's why, I'll also use them.
If I have to, I could become a clown.

Nomad naked expression sad.png

So you think I'm stupid?

Nomad naked expression anger.png

Ahh, yes. I think so too.
But, I can't even live without this feeling.

Nomad naked expression neutral.png

I will survive, and I will revenge---
The beast inside me will support me.

Nomad naked expression anger.png

The only person I can believe is myself(you).
Yes, [Player], only you---!

Nomad naked expression anger.png

You, are my other half, my companion.
[Player]......[Player]......!

Nomad naked expression neutral.png

I feel like we've been together forever.
In this intensely darkness for years---

Nomad looked at [Player], his eyes were filled with great trust.

From then on,
whenever the guards opened the door, [Player] would leave the cell.

Paths and exits, places that are lit,
you remembered and told Nomad the layout of the prison.

And, finally---
The day of prison break has come.

......

The guards have come to the cell today.
In order to beat and torture Nomad.

However, there were something different this time.

On that day, Nomad had his eyes closed.
And, he was beaten up in that way. Then---

[Player] left the cell and broke all the lights outside.

Suddenly, complete darkness covered the area and the guards panicked.
At that very moment, Nomad has caught attention.

Nomad naked expression anger.png

UOOOOOOOooooo!

Nomad, already used to the dark, was the only one who can move freely.

He knocked out the guards, stole the keys and weapons,
broke the communicator and fled from the cell.

Nomad naked expression anger.png

Ha......hahahaha!

Spending a long time,
from all the information gathered from [Player]---

Nomad has already fully memorized the layout and the escape route of the prison.

The two sneaked through security cameras,
and broke through the natural prison which was told impossible to escape.

Nomad naked expression neutral.png

Yes, we can make it, [Player]!

Nomad naked expression anger.png

Hahahahahaha!
Is this a dream? Or I finally lost it!

Nomad naked expression anger.png

What's wrong with me, prison breaking with the help of my illusion!
Has the world gone mad?

Nomad naked expression neutral.png

Ah, it doesn't matter, whether it's me or the world is crazy I don't care!

Nomad naked expression anger.png

Let's go, [Player]!
You are me, and I am you!!

Nomad naked expression neutral.png

With you here, I---

Nomad and [Player] stopped.

There was something standing in front of them.

Nomad expression flame.png

......

Nomad naked expression surprised.png

You are---!

Standing in front of the two---
was a phantom covered in flames.

Swaying like flames or a mirage,
you could not see the actual figure.

Nomad naked expression anger.png

I don't know who you are,
but if you're in my way---

Nomad expression flame.png

......Leave [Player] alone.

Nomad naked expression surprised.png

---What?

Nomad expression flame.png

He does not belong to you.

Nomad naked expression surprised.png

---Are you trying to......
take him(me) away from me?

Nomad expression flame.png

---He belongs to me, to begin with.

That sentence triggered Nomad, as his face distorted.
What left behind---was hatred.

Nomad naked expression surprised.png

Are you also trying to take things away from me.
If so......I'll kill you......!
(Note: The dialogue is bugged where the lines were spoken by the figure, but in context it should be Nomad(past).)


3 options
Wait, Nomad! That's......Nomad. He's yourself!

Nomad naked expression neutral.png

What......are you talking about!
[Player]......!

Nomad naked expression anger.png

Are you gonna, betray me as well......!

Nomad naked expression anger.png

Yes, I knew it......
[Player], you too......!

Nomad naked expression anger.png

I won't forgive you, NEVER!
I'll never fogive--- those who betray me!!

(Battle)

Nomad naked expression anger.png

I, I will---
never forgive, those who betray me---

Nomad naked expression anger.png

You will have no where to hide---

Nomad naked expression anger.png

Yes--this is revenge!
Even if the place, the time, the world has changed......!

Nomad naked expression anger.png

No matter where you escape, I will continue to chase you til you can't hide---!

In rage, Nomad raised his claws and fangs,
advanced and attacked.

At the very moment you made up your mind---

A beam of blazing light out of nowhere started shining hard on Nomad.

Nomad naked expression surprised.png

What's this light......!
It's filling the corridor, even the windows......!

Nomad turned to the light source.
What he saw was---

Nomad naked expression surprised.png

Who, is calling me?
Me---?

Nomad naked expression anger.png

Ah, there you are---
THERE YOU ARE---!!!!

As if answering the call,
Nomad reached his hand into the light.

Then he melted into the light and disappeared.

Nomad expression flame.png

......

[Player] and the phantom of flames also disappeared into the light---

Nomad expression neutral.png

......Oh, you're finally awake.


3 options
Wait, this is--- Are we back at the same place?! Which Nomad are you?

Nomad expression neutral.png

---Don't worry, [Player].
This is no doubt, the underground of the Ikebukuro guild.

Nomad expression neutral.png

And I'm no doubt---
the Nomad you met at Ikebukuro.

Nomad expression neutral.png

At that time, there were two of me in the same place,
so my existence was not stable.

Nomad expression sad.png

You and the me in the past......
How should I put this.

Nomad expression neutral.png

Should only be able to see---
"Something which the existence is unstable".

Nomad expression neutral.png

However, at least you two can see me.
The others, those without connections---

Nomad expression sad.png

Will not be able to see or sense us, just like a ghost.


3 options
So that's really Nomad in the past? That place was where Nomad--- imprisoned in the past?

Nomad expression sad.png

......Yes.
You should know it without me answering.

Nomad expression neutral.png

A few days ago, in this Ikebukuro underground.
The area which was not in use---

Nomad expression neutral.png

A different world was found overlapping.

Nomad expression neutral.png

I was commissioned by boss(Claude),
to investigate the world in this underground.

Nomad expression anger.png

There I found out---
that place was "the prison where I was kept".

Nomad expression neutral.png

"Undergound corridor", "cells" and "hospital".
And also the place where I, "Nomad" was kept.

Nomad expression neutral.png

That area was tied and linked to here.

Nomad expression sad.png

I don't know if you've heard about this before,
but the gates will link to "places that are similar in both worlds".

Nomad expression neutral.png

Once "Nomad" disappeared from that prison.
The world---was back to normal.

Nomad expression sad.png

......Yes. That,
was myself before being summoned to Tokyo.

Nomad expression neutral.png

The very self---seeking revenge he hated most at that time,
had jumped to Tokyo to commence his act.

Nomad expression sad.png

"Tenkousei" will travel through time and dimensions.
I think---I jumped a little too far in time.

Nomad expression neutral.png

By the time I arrived---
You were not there.


3 options
Do you mean when we first met--- you already knew--- what has happened?

Nomad expression sad.png

......I only found out, after our contract was confined.
It was after I started investigating this place.

Nomad expression neutral.png

What if I---contracted with the person I seek revenge on,
and also the reason I came to this Tokyo?

Nomad pinned [Player] to the wall, with his two arms next to your face.

Nomad expression anger.png

---Traitor.


3 options
Wait wait wait! I didn't betray you?! The two of you were both Nomad!

Nomad expression anger.png

You've betryed me.
To "me at that time".

Nomad expression anger.png

You've betrayed the "me at that time"---who trusted you,
who told you everything that he never would to anyone else.

He spoke.
And he lowered his arms.

Nomad expression neutral.png

But, what you've said were not lies.
You have not betrayed......"me at present".

Nomad expression anger.png

Among the two, you've only betrayed on of us.
So---I'll give you a chance.


1 option
A chance?

Nomad expression anger.png

I'll not forgive betrayal, "not even once".
For that, I will not take my words back.

Nomad expression neutral.png

However I will postpone my revenge until I've done with the other traitors,
since you've only betrayed me "half a time".

Nomad expression anger.png

---Be my accomplice, [Player].

Nomad expression neutral.png

As my other half, and as a sharer of my secret,
please lend a hand to Nomad on his revenge.


3 options
---Okay. But I'll stop you if you've gone too far though? What if I say no?

Nomad expression neutral.png

No matter what you answer---the conclusion will be the same.

Nomad expression anger.png

You don't have a choice, [Player].
Because you've betrayed me "half a time".

Nomad expression neutral.png

......If, you dare to betray me once again---

Nomad expression anger.png

If you betray me for another "once and a half", I will never forgive you.

Nomad expression anger.png

I will hunt you down with highest priority. ---I will, strike my fangs into you.


3 options
Understood. Does that mean, you will only look at me? ---Not bad.

Nomad expression neutral.png

......
Do you really understand?


3 options
There's no way you can threaten me. I know everything about Nomad now. ---You actually want me to stop you right?

Nomad expression neutral.png

......Shut up, be quiet.


3 options
I know everything. Because I'm Nomad's partner. Because, I love Nomad.
Nomad expression surprised.png

L, lov---!?
What are you saying with that serious face!!


Nomad expression shocked.png

......I, I told you to shut up didn't I!
Now be quiet now, really......

Nomad expression neutral.png

I'll need to go for another case after reporting to Claude(boss).

Nomad expression anger.png

Don't just stand there!
I'm telling you to follow me.

Nomad expression neutral.png

Ahh, right.
Starting from today, you'll be my official detective assistant.

Nomad expression neutral.png

I won't let you complain.
You---

Nomad expression joy.png

---Traitor.


3 options
Aye, partner! It seems I have no choice. Roger, my dearest Nomad!
Nomad expression joy.png

I'm counting on you, traitor.
Make youself useful.

Nomad expression shocked.png

CUT---IT---OUT---!!


The two started walking.
A strange bond started constructing between them---

---END---
