Depending on your progress in the story, characters you have yet to recruit may appear in these events. (Kam'lanaut arrives from a Torsion)

  • Kam'lanaut: ...Have you been waiting here for me?
  • Eald'narche: I have something to ask of you. It won't take long.
  • Eald'narche: You needn't be so wary of me. I merely want you to pass my dimensional coordinates onto Materia's warriors.
  • Eald'narche: Since you're traveling with them, it should be no problem. Right?
  • Kam'lanaut: I wonder. It's not as if we trust each other.
  • Eald'narche: That matters not. I'm sure they'll take it.
  • Eald'narche: ...You think I want to see things for myself, don't you?
  • Eald'narche: You're right, but make no mistake. That is but a means to an end.
  • Eald'narche: To undo the failures of the past and make the right choices to obtain the future.
  • Kam'lanaut: What are you talking about?
  • Eald'narche: By using the principles of this world, I may be able to settle that time I cast you aside.
  • Kam'lanaut: ...What nonsense. The past cannot be changed.
  • Eald'narche: Think what you want. I suppose arguing here was inevitable.
  • Eald'narche: Give them my coordinates. Understood?

(Eald'narche disappears)

  • Kam'lanaut: Just what is he scheming...?
  • Kam'lanaut: Hmph... I suppose I'll do what he asks for now.
  • Kam'lanaut: I need only discern what to do once handing them these coordinates...

(Kam'lanaut appears before the party)

  • Firion: Kam'lanaut!?
  • Kam'lanaut: You worms need only listen.
  • Sabin: Listen to what?
  • Kam'lanaut: Take these.
  • Mog: Dimensional coordinates, kupo!?
  • Firion: But we've already got yours, Kam'lanaut.
  • Mog: ...These aren't Kam'lanaut's. They're Eald'narche's!
  • Sabin: Eald'narche!? You mean the one you betrayed...?
  • Kam'lanaut: He betrayed me first. And he asked me to give you those.
  • Kam'lanaut: Use them as you see fit. It is no concern of mine.
  • Firion: What is Eald'narche thinking...?
  • Kam'lanaut: He saw me lending you a hand...and decided to cooperate.
  • Sabin: Does he want to help for the same reason as you? To understand our motivations?
  • Kam'lanaut: You have a praiseworthy memory for a primate. Now you two can use each other.
  • Kam'lanaut: His strength is absolute. He will no doubt be a worthy comrade in battle.
  • Firion: But we can't trust him!
  • Kam'lanaut: Trust... Hmph. There is a chance he'll throw you away as easily as he did me.
  • Kam'lanaut: But for a moment, see how the scales balance.
  • Kam'lanaut: A great power like Eald'narche's against fragile sentiments like trust...
  • Kam'lanaut: Which will be more beneficial to you in the end?

(Kam'lanaut disappears)

  • Firion: ...Could it be he can't trust him, either?
  • Sabin: Let's talk with the others, Mog.
  • Mog: Right... We can't decide this on our own, kupo.
The Means to an End:
  • Eald'narche: So you didn't throw my coordinates away. Perhaps you fools are worthy of being saved after all.
  • Lion: We don't need your saving, thanks.
  • Eald'narche: No matter. I did not come here to discuss something so pedantic.
  • Eald'narche: I will be your ally. It will be to our mutual benefit.
  • Quistis: What made you change your mind? I thought we were enemies.
  • Eald'narche: Enemies...? I was merely cleaning up my brother's mess.
  • Eald'narche: One cannot create a fake Paradise. There was no need to make things worse than they were.
  • Eald'narche: As a result, we became enemies. That's all there is to it.
  • Edge: You want us to believe you, even though you tried to destroy Lion's world!?
  • Eald'narche: Destroy? I was trying to make a paradise for the chosen. It's the same as the gods of this world.
  • Lion: The same? How...?
  • Eald'narche: Then tell me: what's different? Not that I expect us to understand each other, but...
  • Eald'narche: Our goal is the same, isn't it?
  • Quistis: Goal? What do you mean?
  • Eald'narche: By using the principles of this world, we may be able to return to our respective homes without the help of the gods.
  • Edge: What!?
  • Kam'lanaut: (To fix the past, we must return to our world. I should have known Eald'narche would think that far ahead.)
  • Eald'narche: To that end, it became necessary for me to see things through your eyes.
  • Eald'narche: Returning home is your goal, is it not?
  • Eald'narche: So adding me to your ranks helps us both. Don't you agree?
  • Lion: ...Just because we have the same goal doesn't mean I'll work with you.
  • Lion: I saw the awful way you treated people... I can't imagine you would give up after that. I won't let that happen to Vana'diel again!
  • Eald'narche: How annoying... All I did was rid the world of its scum, and yet you say that!?
  • Eald'narche: I implore you to remember the favor we bestowed upon Jeuno instead.
  • Eald'narche: As long as you have value to me, I won't harm you. You can share in the profits of others.
  • Eald'narche: To simplify for you fools: I will let you know once I figure out a way to return to our home worlds.
  • Eald'narche: ...You won't be won over, you say? How about you? Your heart seems to be wavering.
  • Edge: That's true, but...I won't be so easily drawn in by you!
  • Quistis: Exactly. There's too great a risk in making you our ally.
  • Eald'narche: ...Hmph. Very well then.
  • Eald'narche: Let me tell you something interesting. Something Kam'lanaut hasn't even heard...
Ambition Revealed:
  • Eald'narche: There are some perculiar things occurring in this world.
  • Lion: Peculiar...things?
  • Eald'narche: Those who have died in our home worlds can be brought back here.
  • Eald'narche: The time you'd wish to return to varies before and after reclaiming your brilliance.
  • Eald'narche: Do you not think it strange? If we return to our original worlds, when do you think we will go back to?
  • Chelinka: You don't mean...
  • Yuri: We might be able to return to whatever time we want?
  • Galuf: Is that possible!?
  • Eald'narche: How perceptive of you. In this hypothesis, we can fix the mistakes of our past.
  • Kam'lanaut: (I see... So one could both return home and start over.)
  • Lion: I understand what you're thinking, but...we'll still stop you no matter how many times you try!
  • Yuri: Wait, Lion. I don't think that's it...
  • Yuri: If you go back home, you two might not have to fight. You'll return to different worlds.
  • Eald'narche: ...I see. I thought you knew something, but you speak from experience.
  • Eald'narche: Thanks to which, I have confirmed my hypothesis.
  • Eald'narche: It is as he says. To put it in simpleton's terms: there will be parallel worlds.
  • Eald'narche: You will each be given a fair chance to fix your past mistakes.
  • Eald'narche: What do you think?
  • Chelinka: But if you go back to that world, will you still hurt lots of people?
  • Eald'narche: And if I do?
  • Eald'narche: ...I see. We could not be allies, then. Despite how much I've explained...
  • Lion: If you can read our minds, you understand. We don't need your power.
  • Eald'narche: I know. But your understanding is pitifully shallow.
  • Eald'narche: You've been so focused on me that you haven't noticed the benefits for yourselves.
  • Lion: There's nothing I want to fix in my past. No matter what it is, it's made me who I am today.
  • Eald'narche: I wasn't talking about you. Or have you forgotten since coming here?
  • Eald'narche: If you do as I say, those who should have perished can still live.
  • Ignis: ...Do not underestimate us.
  • Eald'narche: Ahaha! Those eyes!
  • Eald'narche: But what about the others? If they knew of the possibility...
  • Eald'narche: I welcome you at any time. We can work together for a better future.

(Eald'narche and Kam'lanaut disappear)

  • Lion: If we can prevent some from dying, I want to save them, but...
  • Ignis: No. It's as you said. Everything in our pasts has made us who we are.
  • Lion: I thought about throwing away his coordinates, but...it wouldn't change anything.
  • Lion: And I can't just leave them here. Maybe I'll give them to Mog until my heart is ready...
  • Yuri: I think you should do what you want. Don't think you have to shoulder this alone.
  • Chelinka: I understand a little of how Eald'narche feels... But if lots of sacrifices need to be made, I'll do whatever it takes to stop him.
  • Lion: Yeah... Thank you, everyone.

  • Kam'lanaut: Do you really intend to do things over?
  • Eald'narche: Of course. And this time, everything will go according to plan.
  • Eald'narche: You understand what you must do, don't you? Do not betray my expectations.

(Eald'narche leaves)

  • Kam'lanaut: So that we do not fail this time...?
