Story

【Beginning】
Wars wiped out Alma’s family. Still just in her adolescence, she joined the army of the Gods. Her agility attracted the attention of the officers and was trained to be an assassin. In a tough battle, Demons released a beast of Demon blood. Alma recognized the beast as the enemy who killed her family and therefore, she fought against it in the battlefront with other Gods. Although they drove the beast back, they had become contaminated by its Demon blood. Being rendered comatose, she resisted the Demon blood in her system, but the vicious toxin had led to the growth of a scorpion tail.

372i Court of Sagittarius - Hertz: You’re just being meddlesome.
-1002i Court of Aries: But if we don’t do something, she will lose any chance of a normal life.
372i Court of Sagittarius - Hertz: Even she doesn’t fall into madness, I have no means of dealing with the tail.
-1002i Court of Aries: What about something mechanic? Aren’t you good with those?
372i Court of Sagittarius - Hertz: Even I plate the tail with gold, she would still face discrimination.
-1002i Court of Aries: At least she won’t be driven mad by the demon’s blood.
372i Court of Sagittarius - Hertz: Sigh...You win.
-1002i Court of Aries: Thank You, Hertz.

The Court put his tender hand on the forehand of the adolescent.

-1002i Court of Aries: It’s only because of our lack of power that she can’t be saved —


【Enemy Dialog】

576i Shadow: Have you forgotten about yourself? How angry are you?
369i Alma the Sickle Assassin: You murderer! I won’t go easy on you. I won’t —
369i Alma the Sickle Assassin: I won’t lose to you!


【End】
When Alma woke, her back had a metal scorpion tail. She felt a power from that tail down her waist. Her already agile limbs could now store energy and release it with much more force than before...

369i Alma the Sickle Assassin: ‘I won...’
369i Alma the Sickle Assassin: ‘I didn’t just kill the murderer. I even suppressed his will — ’
369i Alma the Sickle Assassin: ‘Mom, dad...I won!’

She did not have the time to cry out a tear before the sound of steps went into the room. Alma calmed her mind and saw a sergeant with a serious expression coming in and said:

406i Sergeant: Even with help from Courts of Zodiacs, we did not think you could make it.
369i Alma the Sickle Assassin: Huh! Stop being silly!
369i Alma the Sickle Assassin: ‘Help of the Courts...Could it be this metal tail?’
406i Sergeant: Alma, the others were driven mad by the contamination.
369i Alma the Sickle Assassin: How come...
406i Sergeant: We caught some of them, but still, a number of them ran from the army.
406i Sergeant: To avoid the spreading of the contamination, we —
369i Alma the Sickle Assassin: Hmph. Haha...
406i Sergeant: Alma, you —
369i Alma the Sickle Assassin: Relax, I’m not crazy!
369i Alma the Sickle Assassin: ‘My enemy is not completely dead yet — my battle isn’t over!’

Story

【Beginning】
Alma returned onto the battlefield as an assassin, stealthily killing the warriors of Gods who were contaminated and hence controlled by Demon blood. All along, Alma had but one tactic: she would stealthily approach the target before dealing the fatal blow with her scorpion tail.

362i John: !

The metal tail went deep in the floor. John stared at Alma, who just missed with her first strike. She leapt up and turned around as if dancing, slashing her broad and heavy scythe. John raised his hands and blocked the attack, the arm blade and the scythe clanked with sparks. Striking twice with no avail stirred Alma's anger.

369i Alma the Sickle Assassin: Die!

Somersaulting forward, Alma lashed down with her tail like a whip, but John had already rolled forward. The two had switched positions as if rehearsed. The scythe danced in the air, its blade gleaming. John leveraged the strikes and bounced far to the back. Maybe it was he had detected Alma’s power, but John actually felt worried for her.

362i John: Stop. You’ve been deceived!
369i Alma the Sickle Assassin: You wish for mercy?
362i John: Listen to me first...


【Before Battles】

369i Alma the Sickle Assassin: Die!


【Enemy Dialog】

362i John: You are deceived!
362i John: They have manipulated you to purge dissidents from the army of Gods.
369i Alma the Sickle Assassin: Nonsense!


【End】
Seeing her scythe thrusting towards John who was under a pillar, Alma thought she had him. However, a giant claw in the shadow grabbed Alma’s leg, stopping her strike and spinning her into the air. Just then, another claw held her tail and a great force threw her far away. Alma landed unsteadily on the ground, returning to her original position, only to find that John has disappeared.
The angry Alma chased blindly but was shaken off by John.

369i Alma the Sickle Assassin: He even tried to talk me down...unlike the other contaminated.

On her way back, Alma pondered John’s words through and decided to investigate his background at the camps. Of course, her job rank was insufficient to look into confidential documents of the army. That was why she sneaked into the camps at night and searched everywhere for any record related to John.

369i Alma the Sickle Assassin: What an exemplary record...No wonder he beat me...
369i Alma the Sickle Assassin: Though he failed in his last mission...
369i Alma the Sickle Assassin: ...he was sent to assassinate Lü Bu the Demon General!

Alma tossed the report away.

369i Alma the Sickle Assassin: What the heck! He wasn’t turned into a Demon by the beast’s blood!

Story

【Beginning】
Just after Alma tossed the report, numerous sounds of steps came from every direction. She jumped out of the room but was already surrounded by soldiers.

369i Alma the Sickle Assassin: Okay! I confess! I shouldn’t have barged in. Send me to jail.
369i Alma the Sickle Assassin: ‘You’ll soon assign missions to me anyway...’
145i General: Soldier, did you accomplish your mission?
369i Alma the Sickle Assassin: I did not, general.
145i General: Alma, is there anything you want to say in your defense?
369i Alma the Sickle Assassin: Didn’t I just say I confess?
145i General: Hmph! Disobeying orders and trespassing, huh?
145i General: I hereby announce:
145i General: Soldier Alma is controled by Demons and shall be executed immediately!


【Before Battles】

369i Alma the Sickle Assassin: You’re overreacting!


【Enemy Dialog】

369i Alma the Sickle Assassin: This power — You are one of the Demons!
145i General: Kill!


【End】
At the decisive moment, the enemy’s cursed scarlet sword swung at her waist and Alma sticked her scythe into the ground, blocking the hard attack with its blade. However, the cursed sword cut clean through the scythe like a knife cutting through hot butter. Alma decided to discard her weapon and bounced on the wall to her enemy, locking his shoulders with her hands. The Demon general struggled with all his might. Alma’s tail was cut into pieces and her back was slashed with the dancing sword.
When the general finally suffocated, Alma fell down as well. The sound of reinforcement reached her ears, but she had lost the strength to flee and the loss of blood put her in a coma.

355i ???: ...Hang...
355i ???: Hang in there!

In a daze, Alma felt herself fading, but she wasn’t floating in the air. Something was holding her, giving her a warmth like a campfire.

369i Alma the Sickle Assassin: ‘Right...I still have a lot to do...’

The blood of the beast and the power of constellations swirled inside her. An image of a statue holding an astrolabe appeared from the blankness in her mind.

383i Astralist: Alma, are you confident that you can always be decisive...
383i Astralist: ...and that you will objectively uphold all morals?
369i Alma the Sickle Assassin: ‘What are you talking about? For whom have I ever changed?’
383i Astralist: Alma, carry through that thought with our power —

Story

【Beginning】

422i Novalis the Dragon Follower: Darn...Why can’t I shake it off...

Novalis, with his wand, blocked the attacks from the sting-tail. Red strings guided the metal-shell and led it with a dance through the ruins. The tail’s master pestered Novalis from an unseen location; she conserved her energy for the impending assault.

370i Court of Scorpio - Alma: If I don’t show up, are you just going to fight a running battle like this?

Alma’s voice came from his back. Novalis could almost feel her breath in it. The power of dragon burst from him. Alma lightly hopped into the air and protected herself with her scythe, letting herself be blown away by the strong shockwave, and landing with her metal shell hitting a pillar. Alma clenched her right fist and the flying tail went to her back and combined with the rest of it. Novalis was filled with the power of dragon and yelled:

422i Novalis the Dragon Follower: God, why do you hinder me!
370i Court of Scorpio - Alma: Boy, you can’t pursue a girl that aggressively!
422i Novalis the Dragon Follower: What is between Ursula and I is none of your business!
370i Court of Scorpio - Alma: But if you are driven mad by the dragon blood in your body...
370i Court of Scorpio - Alma: ...then it would be my business.
422i Novalis the Dragon Follower: What do you want!
370i Court of Scorpio - Alma: Not much. Just to test your power!


【Enemy Dialog】

422i Novalis the Dragon Follower: You know nothing yet dare speak so callously?!
370i Court of Scorpio - Alma: Do you get irritated this easily?


【End】

370i Court of Scorpio - Alma: What? Tired?
370i Court of Scorpio - Alma: Weren’t you boasting just moments before?

The heavy scythe pierced Novalis’ wing. The scorpion tail wrapped him and pinned him on a pillar. Even though he could conjure Faugn’s power, if he took in too much, the wild Faugn would consume his will...Rage abetted Novalis but he still endured with every bit of his energy.

370i Court of Scorpio - Alma: Hmph! Didn’t you say you’d teach me a lesson?
370i Court of Scorpio - Alma: What? Are your dragon wings just decorations?
422i Novalis the Dragon Follower: You —
422i Novalis the Dragon Follower: ‘Calm down! I can give up anytime.’
422i Novalis the Dragon Follower: ‘Now let’s catch my breath and see what she’s up to...’
370i Court of Scorpio - Alma: You’re even worse than a monkey with wings!

Alma kept flinging abuse and she stepped onto Novalis’ tail.

370i Court of Scorpio - Alma: Maybe I should tear off your tail and let you learn how to fight like a monkey...

Alma leant over and pushed her scythe further.

370i Court of Scorpio - Alma: And your wings.
370i Court of Scorpio - Alma: If I tear off this decoration, you can learn to swim from your little girlfriend.

The furious Novalis was about to strike back, but Alma suddenly leapt backwards and pulled out her scythe, loosening her tail at the same time. Novalis’ dash went awry and he fell onto the floor. A crowd of people, along with rippling sounds of water, appeared simultaneously. Alma and Novalis were surrounded by heretics and a tentacled witch.

480i The Great Mother of Lust: Nice to meet you, Court of —
370i Court of Scorpio - Alma: I know you, tentacle hag. How’s Faugn’s appetite lately?
480i The Great Mother of Lust: If you give me the boy behind you, I will forgive your arrogance.
422i Novalis the Dragon Follower: I, I don’t belong to anyone!

Novalis retrieved his weapon and said, but no one cared. The witch and Alma stared at each other while the gaps on the scorpion tail radiated red light.

370i Court of Scorpio - Alma: Compared to an insatiable lunatic...
370i Court of Scorpio - Alma: I’d rather let the adolescent boy take the power of Faugn.
422i Novalis the Dragon Follower: Who are you calling an adolescent boy!
370i Court of Scorpio - Alma: You performed better than I expected!
370i Court of Scorpio - Alma: I’ve changed my perception towards your generation!
480i The Great Mother of Lust: ...Ahem!
480i The Great Mother of Lust: We’re here to take back what belongs to us.
480i The Great Mother of Lust: We don’t plan to be an enemy to the Courts of Zodiacs!
370i Court of Scorpio - Alma: But I don’t mind bringing you down.

They stared at each other menacingly as tension spread. At the moment, a ray of light shone from the sky and a Court of Zodiacs with golden wings descended —

366i Court of Virgo - Persephone: Elm — Court of Scorpio! Please stop provoking people!
370i Court of Scorpio - Alma: I didn’t.

Persephone landed by Alma’s side. Her presence drained the heretics of their will to fight. Persephone bowed gracefully to the witch. Elements suddenly fell upon Alma and Novalis, healing their wounds.

366i Court of Virgo - Persephone: Saintly Maiden of Primordial Gods, please forgive us.
366i Court of Virgo - Persephone: But we cannot let you acquire the power of the Ethereal Dragon.
480i The Great Mother of Lust: So, the Gods are planning to stand against Primordial Gods?
370i Court of Scorpio - Alma: I just hate you.
366i Court of Virgo - Persephone: Alas...You do this everytime...
549i Silver Twilight Adherent: Honorable Saintly Maiden! Outside —

Warriors brought with the Court of Virgo stood in line outside the ruins. Alma and Persephone raised their scythes against the heretics —

422i Novalis the Dragon Follower: Wait! Who can tell me what’s happening —
