Title: Sibling bonds, a strange encounter

Location: Ikebukuro ~ Atago?


Mountains

Pollux expression blush.png

Hahahaha! Isn’t this a nice view?


A steep rocky mountain towering over Tokyo.
From up there you could see a sea of clouds.


Pointing up with his finger towards the clouds,
Pollux noded his head with satisfaction.


Pollux expression neutral.png

Being so high up on a mountain feels so good,
don’t you think so, master?!

3 options (same response)
Where is this? Why are we coming to a mountain? So cold, so cold!

A crumbling rock collapsed from bad footing,
falling far down the mountain.


[Player] was climbing the cliff of the rocky mountain.
Pollux was side-to-side to him, staring at him climbing.


Pollux expression blush.png

Hahaha, are you scared?


Pollux looked like he was having fun.


Pollux expression neutral.png

Since I’m immortal, I don’t really
understand the fear of dying.

3 options
Scary scary scary! I’m not scared, though Cling to Pollux
Pollux expression excited.png

Hah, that’s what I expected!
Here, hold on to me, master!

Pollux expression blush.png

I admire your courage, master!

Pollux expression excited.png

Hahahaha, that’s the passion, master!

3 options (same response)
If you keep finding this amusing I’ll punch you! Anyway, what’s the reason that- Are we close the top of the mountain already?!
Pollux expression neutral.png

どうして、ってそりゃあー
オレが運れて来たからに決まってんだろ?

Office

… The story goes back a little.


Pollux expression neutral.png

Yo, sir Snow.
To summon me, there must be some trouble.

Snow expression smile.png

Well, this is an especially delicate trouble.
That’s why I summoned you here, Pollux-sama.


After hearing Snow’s words,
Pollux’s eyes shone unintentionally.


Pollux expression blush.png

I see, a risky one.
It’s a risky request, isn’t it, sir Snow?!

Snow expression neutral.png

Some of this recklessness is indeed worrying…
But I like your courage.

Snow expression neutral.png

Well, let’s get to the main subject immediately.

Snow expression neutral.png

… In both Minato-ku and Atagoyama,
there are reports of issues regarding “another world”.

Snow expression neutral.png

As you are aware of, Minato-ku is one of the 23 Tokyo wards,
and the gate has appeared in the highest point of the place.

Snow expression neutral.png

Many mountains and towers have appeared,
records suggest that they are overlapping from other worlds, but…

Snow expression smile.png

This time, there appears to be a new one, perhaps
a mountain related to your homeworld, Pollux-sama.

Pollux expression neutral.png

… “The mountain where the gods reside”.
In other words, Olympus…

Snow expression neutral.png

ええ、 貢方と同郷の「転光生」が
そこに居て、 何かをしているという事。

Snow expression neutral.png

「異界化」 の条件には、 場所と門(ゲ一卜)。
そしてー核となる 「転光生」 が必要になります故に。

Snow expression neutral.png

Therefore, we as Ikebukuro need to know what is happening there…
At least, “who is there” is of special interest.

Snow expression smile.png

That is where you come in, Pollux-sama.
Since Olympus is also your place of origin, then…

Pollux expression neutral.png

There’s a high probability that
it’s someone that I know.

Snow expression smile.png

You are right.
First of all, I want you to bring back all the information that you can.

Snow expression neutral.png

Furthermore, if there is any intervention from another guild,
I expect the minimal delay or disturbance.

Snow expression smile.png

Will you accept this job,
Pollux-sama?

Pollux expression neutral.png

...


Pollux’s facial expression had a mix of feelings.
However, it was only for a moment…


Unless you are very perceptive,
these details would have been overlooked.


Snow expression smile.png

… Unfortunately.

Snow expression neutral.png

Your brother that fell into hell,
should not be in that mountain.

Snow expression smile.png

Even so, will you partake on this job?

Pollux expression neutral.png

...

Pollux expression neutral.png

Claude looked after me for a long time, so
I cannot turn down any request.

Pollux expression excited.png

I’m off, sir Snow.
I will go with my new master.

Mountains

Pollux expression neutral.png

ーってな訳だ。
食い扶持の分は、 きちんと働かねえとな。

Pollux expression blush.png

However, it’s nostalgic.


Narrowing his eyes, Pollux took a look at his surroundings.
There was no doubt, this was his old home.


Pollux expression excited.png

This is where I lived before being summoned into Tokyo,
mount Olympus.

2 options (same response)
ヘンな仕事に巻き込むなー! Thanks for inviting me
Pollux expression blush.png

Hahaha, I’m looking forward to show
my new master around.

Pollux expression excited.png

Some adventure is always nice, it brings out your true nature.
Anyways…

Pollux expression blush.png

Ahhh, being so high up feels so great!

3 options (same response)
But somehow, Pollux… During your time in the underground fighting arena…- Doesn’t it look great too?
Pollux expression neutral.png

Oh, that’s right. The fundamentals
of my source of power come from the “holy” attribute.

Pollux expression excited.png

Because my hometown is Mount Olympus.
A world very close to the sky.

Pollux expression sad.png

The underground fighting arena is more close to the “dark” attribute,
so the mountains are more compatible with me.

Pollux expression blush.png

And since this guy is “holy” attribute,
I can’t stay in the Ikebukuro guild for too long.

3 options (same response)
Bad affinity, isn’t that bad for you? Then Pollux, why are you… Are you part of the Ikebukuro guild?
Pollux expression excited.png

Oh, of course.
But I’m searching for my brother, who’s still alive.

Pollux expression neutral.png

My older brother was an expert wrestler, strong and courageous,
there were no opponents that could defeat us both.

Pollux expression sad.png

However… In our last battle,
my older brother died and fell into hell.

Pollux expression sad.png

And as for me, when I went
back to Olympus we got separated.

Pollux expression neutral.png

But since I shared part of my immortality with my brother,
he should be revived somewhere.

Pollux expression sad.png

After that, I searched
every corner of my hometown but…

Pollux expression sad.png

I couldn’t find my brother anywhere.

Pollux expression blush.png

And while I was searching,
I got summoned into Tokyo.

Pollux expression neutral.png

Well, I’d say it was rather convenient.

Pollux expression blush.png

In the basement of Ikebukuro there’s
a gate that connects to hell, so I thought I could look for leads there.

2 options (same response)
You really love your brother He must be proud of being your brother
Pollux expression blush.png

Yeah, of course.
I’m the one proud of my brother!

Pollux expression neutral.png

I would definitely love if
you could meet him, master.

Pollux expression excited.png

When I was with my brother, I really enjoyed going on adventures or to battle with him.
If I can meet him again, I will…

3 options (same response)
But it’s so cold...! It’s very scary to be so high up! It feels like I’m going to fall
Pollux expression neutral.png

O~tto, it’s fine it’s fine.
Hey, master, come over here.

Pollux expression neutral.png

Wrap your arm tightly around my neck and... there we go!

Pollux expression blush.png

I’m wearing this iron bracelet on my hand,
sorry if it’s too cold when touching your waist.

2 options (same response)
Are you going to carry me like a princess?! It’s not cold at all!
Pollux expression blush.png

Hey, how does it feel
the cold touch of the wind?

Pollux expression neutral.png

With my fist, I can punch any
dangerous calamity coming our way.

Pollux expression blush.png

Even if it’s burning hot or freezing, it doesn’t matter.
Also, I can deflect any kind of projectile!

2 options (same response)
A projectile? Huh, what’s that?

And at that moment…


[Player] saw a countless
number of shuriken and kunai flying towards them.


However, their trajectory got bent by an invisible force,
not being able to leave a scratch on [Player].


Pollux expression blush.png

Hahaha, this place is getting dangerous, master.
Like getting close to a bee’s nest.

3 options (same response)
This place could be deadly?! Who threw those dangerous things… Hey, what was that?!

*Ninjas appear*

1 option
Ninjas?!
Pollux expression excited.png

Oh, they came out they came out.
It’s just as sir Snow said.

Office

Pollux expression neutral.png

But, sir Snow.
I’m not particularly stingy for anything.

Pollux expression sad.png

But where is this troublesome thing?
Because this sounds like a typical survey mission.

Snow expression neutral.png

… Pollux-sama.
Do you know anything about mount Atago?

Pollux expression neutral.png

Yeah, of course. From Ikebukuro,
it’s across the city centre, right?

Snow expression smile.png

Yes, that is correct.
And what is on the opposite side?

Pollux expression surprised.png

The opposite… of the city center?
That would be Shinjuku and Chiyoda.

Pollux expression excited.png

… Ah, so that’s it.

Snow expression neutral.png

You are correct.
It is right around the corner.

Snow expression smile.png

Operating solely on gold, they are modern day ninjas.
It is the base of the “Akasaka agents”.

Snow expression angry.png

Yes.
They are one of the limbs of the “Roppongi Tycoons”

Pollux expression angry.png

Huh...

Pollux expression excited.png

Nice, right in the middle of enemy’s territory.
That couldn’t be any better.


Laughing it off, Pollux
smiled like a beast.


Pollux expression blush.png

Barging right into dangerous territory…
That’s my favorite dish!

Mountains

Pollux expression neutral.png

The enemies, and they’ve got company.
This is the kind of risk I was hoping for!

Pollux expression excited.png

Now, let’s punch this small fry and run to the summit.
Let’s go, master!


Following Pollux’s roar, they attacked and struck down the ninjas,
aiming for the top of the mountain.


Tadatomo expression neutral.png

...


From the shadows, a mysterious
ninja Summon was looking at the scene.


Tadatomo expression neutral.png

… He called him “master”.


The Summon had a phone close to his ear,
hearing instructions with disinterest.


Tadatomo expression neutral.png

So I need to delay the intruders.
Don’t worry, I won’t chase them too far.

Tadatomo expression neutral.png

Oh, let me get to the top of the mountain.
Please, allow me to take care of this.

Tadatomo expression neutral.png

I only need to record the intruders’ movements.
The other party will take care of the rest.


When he turned off the phone, the Summon
looked up to the summit of the mountain with a mocking face.


Tadatomo expression neutral.png

Such a cheap job that I have to do.
Miserable Roppongi…

Mountains (Summit)

Pollux expression blush.png

Well, we’re here we’re here!


After repelling the ninja attack, they got to the top of the mountain.


Pollux expression blush.png

…?
That is…


In front of Pollux’s eyes.
There… was a dragon man.


Pollux expression neutral.png

Look at that guy hidden over there, master.
Isn’t that…?

Ophion expression neutral.png

Oh dear…
I hired you in exchange of money.

Ophion expression neutral.png

I asked the simple task of not allowing invasions to the summit…
And you and your spies were not able to do so.

Tadatomo expression neutral.png

We didn’t ignore your orders, boss.
The subordinates have carried out their job proportional to the money they were promised.


And next to the dragon man,
there was a ninja.


Tadatomo expression neutral.png

I can’t make a living out of with this budget.
I expect a much greater payment for a dangerous job.

Ophion expression neutral.png

You bastard, a low birth like you talking down on Ophion,
if you don’t think this is sufficient money, shame on you!

Tadatomo expression neutral.png

...

Ophion expression neutral.png

That’s enough. I won’t allow you to open your mouth again!
You bastard don’t serve me a purpose anymore.

Ophion expression neutral.png

Disappear sneaky rat, shameless!
You lowly monkey, know your place…!

Ophion expression neutral.png

人の目に隠れ、 ものをかすめ取るような運中を
ひとたびでも信じようとした己を嗤(わら)うしかあるまいな。

Ophion expression neutral.png

あのロ先だけ回る怪しげな童の話に乗ろうとも、
このオピオーンはたぶらかせぬわ。

Ophion expression neutral.png

六本木(われら)と赤坂どもの共闘から、
このオピオーンは手を引く事としよう。

Ophion expression neutral.png

この地に、 六本木と赤坂の戦略拠点を築こう話も、
以降、 我は関せぬものと知れ。

Tadatomo expression neutral.png

Naturally.
That’s common knowledge.


Shortly after the rant, the ninja Summon
disappeared in a cloud of mist.


Ophion expression neutral.png

Well, you came at last, earthly weaklings.
Trampling with your feet on my Olympus.

Ophion expression neutral.png

The original creator of Olympus, you are in an audience with the governor of
this place, Ophion, and what will be the most joyous moments before your death.

Pollux expression surprised.png

Governor Ophion?
The creator of Olympus?

Pollux expression excited.png

That’s a lie, I’ve lived in Olympus
and I don’t know who you are.

Pollux expression angry.png

You only sound like a megalomaniac.
Who are you?

Ophion expression neutral.png

How… I will make sure you understand what true fear is!
I won’t allow these remarks, you damn fool!

Ophion expression neutral.png

If you have lived in my Olympus,
how can you not know the name of Ophion?!

Ophion expression neutral.png

I’ve decided.
I’ve decided on how to punish you bastard.

Ophion expression neutral.png

The descendant of Olympus who has forgotten to reverence its creator,
I have the appropriate punishment fit for a fool’s last moments!


The egg hanging from the dragon man’s neck started shining.


Ophion expression neutral.png

Give in to despair.
“The person you believe to be the strongest” and…

Ophion expression neutral.png

“The person you want to meet the most”
will be the ones to end your life!

Ophion expression neutral.png

Come now, give birth from the egg of the Olympus creator.
Answer my calling!

Ophion expression neutral.png

That which concieves the entirety of the world.
That which gives birth to all life.

Ophion expression neutral.png

The egg that hatched out this world,
and the egg where the world will return to, Ophiogenes!

*Pollux shadows appear*

Pollux expression neutral.png

What in the... ?!

3 options (same response)
Several Pollux came out?! That next to you… Maybe they are Pollux’s…
Pollux expression surprised.png

B-brother... ?!

Ophion expression neutral.png

Well, is this what you scum is most afraid of?
Your astonished face says it all, earthly weakling!

Ophion expression neutral.png

With my own sacred treasure born in my Olympus,
I, Ophion, am able to ressurrect every individual from it.

Ophion expression neutral.png

And the children that are born from it are completely
loyal and owe their life to me, like servants.

Ophion expression neutral.png

That’s right, those Akasaka ninjas from before,
you can kill as many as you want!

Ophion expression neutral.png

They are completely obedient to Ophion
and I can create as many as I want…

Ophion expression neutral.png

Now, my children, torment and kill that sinner’s
body and soul.

Ophion expression neutral.png

Wahahahaha!


And with those words, the dragon man
vanished amidst the mist…


Pollux expression shadow castor.png

Hey, Pollux.
Long time no see…

Pollux expression shadow castor.png

Since I died,
how much time has passed?

Pollux expression surprised.png

... B-br...!

Pollux expression shadow castor.png

The adventures we went together, they were fun.
Even when we were playing on the verge of life and death…

Pollux expression shadow castor.png

Until that foolish last moment,
I… I was convinced I was right.

Pollux expression shadow castor.png

When we got separated, we both recieved the same wound,
and while I died… You got to keep living.

Pollux expression shadow castor.png

I was just a regular humang being…
Only you were blessed with immortality!

Pollux expression shadow castor.png

… Considering it, this was bound to happen.

Pollux expression shadow castor.png

You are immortal, so you don’t feel
the shiver of death in perilous situations.

Pollux expression shadow castor.png

Yes, you enjoyed seeing your foolish older brother
trembling with fear, putting his life on the line.

Pollux expression shadow castor.png

The thrill that I might die, it must have been
very enjoyable for someone with an immortal body, wasn’t it?

Pollux expression surprised.png

T-that’s wrong, brother, I…

Pollux expression shadow pollux.png

Hey, this is getting ridiculous, brother.
You know I’m that kind of guy.

Pollux expression shadow pollux.png

Isn’t that right, “me”?


Pollux’s voice was interrupted.
Another Pollux began to speak.


Pollux expression shadow pollux.png

But don’t be worried, brother.
I’ve found a replacement for you.

Pollux expression shadow pollux.png

He’s the same frail human being as you, brother.
It will be funny when he finally dies.

Pollux expression shadow pollux.png

Going to adventures with [Player] reminds me of that thrill.
So you’ve already served your purpose, brother…

Pollux expression sad.png

T-that’s wrong, why…

Pollux expression shadow castor.png

Hahaha, well said, Pollux.
He will give you the same thrill as I did.

Pollux expression shadow castor.png

Seeing his limbs, spine and neck being broken
over and over and over again…!

Pollux expression shadow castor.png

I wonder how much longer can you bear with only half your immortal body,
let’s try it out, ahahahaha…


That said, the innumerable siblings shadows
stood upright and continued assaulting Pollux.

3 options (same response)
Run away, Pollux! Grab his hand and escape Force him to run away

Cave

Pollux expression sad.png

...

3 options (same response)
*pant* *pant* *pant* Are we going to be safe in this cave...? でも、 このまま隠れている訳にも……。


[Player] and Pollux took refuge inside a cave in the mountain.
After catching his breath, ask about the outside situation.


Pollux expression sad.png

… It’s… fine.


While his shoulders were shivering, Pollux
was able to squeeze out some words.


Pollux expression sad.png

That’s right. What my brother said…
Maybe those were my true feelings.

3 options (same response)
Well, that was your brother… You said you enjoyed the danger of death? What are you talking about, Pollux
Pollux expression blush.png

However, it was fun.
I enjoyed going on adventures with my brother.

Pollux expression sad.png

But was it really fun for him too?
I… couldn’t die.

Pollux expression neutral.png

My brother was continuously battling against his fear of death.
But I never did notice…

Pollux expression blush.png

… It’s exactly as that guy said.
When I saw my brother… I got scared.

Pollux expression neutral.png

While searching for my brother, one day I will finally
meet him but my heart is afraid.

Pollux expression sad.png

Surely… I still have a guilty conscience.
For enjoying seeing my brother in danger…

3 options (same response)
No, that’s wrong Hold Pollux’s hand Give Pollux a hug
Pollux expression surprised.png

[Player]...?

3 options (same response)
I enjoyed the adventure with my brother If you think like that… You don’t need to share your immortality
Pollux expression sad.png

… Ugh.
I…


From Pollux’s usual confident face,
tears began to fall.


Pollux expression angry.png

I didn’t realize it, I really didn’t realize it…!
Because I’m an idiot…

Pollux expression sad.png

If I noticed it before he died, I…!
Sooner, u… ugh…!

Pollux expression angry.png

I swore to my brother that we would stay together forever!

But now I can’t fulfill that promise, I’m sorry…
Pollux expression angry.png

I wanted to apologize to my brother…
But I was scared, so scared…!

Pollux expression sad.png

He was really angry,
and I was scared of being hated…

Pollux expression sad.png

I’m sorry for surviving…!
Waaaaahhhh…!!

*Screen fades to black*

...

......

.........

*Screen goes back to the cave*

Pollux expression blush.png

I’m sorry for surviving…!
Waaaaahhhh…!!

Pollux expression neutral.png

Hey, master.
I have a favor to ask.

Pollux expression surprised.png

Would you, uhm…

3 options (same response)
Yeah, I can’t forgive those fakes Two people can win without fail Let’s bring them down!
Pollux expression blush.png

… Hahaha.
You’re not scared of anything, master!

Pollux expression neutral.png

I can see you are serious.

Pollux expression angry.png

… My brother was strong.
Always better than me.

3 options (same response)
Even so, you were a team I’m also really strong Along with you we won’t lose to anybody
Pollux expression excited.png

Yes, that’s right.
I like it, I like it, master!

Pollux expression neutral.png

That recklessness, I like it a lot.

Pollux expression angry.png

Good, then it’s decided.

Pollux expression blush.png

Ah… it’s a relief to have such a reliable brother.
We’re beginning to look like siblings…

Pollux expression excited.png

I won’t lose to anyone!


-BATTLE-


Ikebukuro guild

And…


Pollux expression neutral.png

... Oh, sorry to keep you waiting, master!


Pollux was reporting the details of the mission to Snow,
while his summoner was waiting for him outside.


Yes, they were both able to escape from the mountain,
and went back to the Ikebukuro guild.


Pollux expression blush.png

Sir Snow was surprised.
Because of how we were able to escape safely.

Pollux expression neutral.png

Actually, I also think so.
If I went all by myself, I wouldn’t have made it back.

Pollux expression surprised.png

Since you were with me I made it back
And so, well, [Player], I…

Pollux expression blush.png

I’m happy that I made a contract with you.
I think this is the first time I feel this way.

Pollux expression neutral.png

My brother and I were born from the same mother
so it was coincidence that I met you.

Pollux expression surprised.png

This time, I have to say… Thank you.
Hey, master, I…

3 options (same response)
… Ah We look like real brothers Let’s search for him together!
Pollux expression sad.png

… Ah, so this is how it’s going to be.
This is going to be a long adventure.

Pollux expression neutral.png

When we find my brother,
first of all I want to introduce you to him, master.

Pollux expression excited.png

Absolutely, my brother will definitely like you.
You can bet on it.

Pollux expression blush.png

Yeah, I can guarantee it. Because him and I
had very similar tastes.

Pollux expression neutral.png

So we always shared each other’s…
Hm?

Pollux expression surprised.png

Wait a moment!
There can only be one…?

Pollux expression sad.png

H-hey, what are you saying?!
Do I have to compete between my brother and [Player]…?!

Pollux expression surprised.png

Hey, what are you laughing at, [Player]!
I’m being very serious, hey!


He held his head, with a troubled expression.
Pollux was seriously considering the question.


Looking at him, [Player]
couldn’t help but laugh at him.
