Chapter 1 Edit
Izana Kunagiri runs amid burning buildings crumbling around him. Due to the active crystal jammer he cannot cast spells, and must resort to using his blade to defeat two Militesi soldiers suffering a stomach wound as a result.
Izana was tasked by Archsorceress Arecia Al-Rashia from Akademeia's Sorcery Division to deliver a COMM to Ace, one of her personally tutored cadets deployed to take out the empire's crystal jammer, but Izana is yet to find him. As he walks through the ravaged neighbourhood he recalls how he arrived at this situation.
Izana was but a simple legionary doing his daily task of exterminating coeurls in the forest nearby the capital of Rubrum. Tensions between Rubrum and Milites were increasing with skirmishes breaking out along the borders, Izana discovering this while filing a report.
He met Ace at the chocobo ranch, though he reacted coldly at first. After learning Izana loves chocobos Ace became more welcoming and explained he had been an Agito Cadet since he was eight. Because Ace lived in the external bureau of the Sorcery Division Izana asked is he was genetically modified, but Ace laughed and dismissed it.
Ace reminded Izana of his brother, Machina, a Class Second cadet. Over time Izana learned Ace was educated in military and magic use, but clueless about anything else. Thus Izana talked about other topics with him, and Ace told Izana he never thought of his fellow Class Zero classmates as his family.
One day after telling Izana he had officially enrolled in Akademeia, Ace requested Izana to be the liaison between the military and Class Zero for the upcoming mission, as he wanted to work with someone familiar. Izana trained with Ace and lamented how his magic powers had diminished. Ace suggested he learn to use an alternative weapon like a blade instead. At the end of their training, Izana asked Ace to not turn back if he died on the battlefield.
At the start of the invasion Izana and his friend found Militesi spies while out on patrol and discovered they could not use magic. Arecia called and asked Izana to deliver the COMM to Ace, as only Class Zero could turn the tide of battle.
As a wounded Izana continues looking for Ace, he is accosted by Militesi soldiers. His chocobo, Chichiri, carries him away but Izana loses consciousness and falls. When he comes to Militesi soldiers shoot Chichiri, Izana crying out for Ace, who arrives with Queen and Nine.
Izana passes the COMM to Ace and thanks Chichiri for coming. He thinks about Machina and how he wanted to see Machina's friend Rem one last time. As fear of dying and being forgotten consumes Izana, Ace calms him down. He asks Ace to keep looking forward, and as his final wish, requests Ace to save Rubrum.
