After a splitting headache one night, Vyrn finds himself face to face with the sky god in an unfamiliar place. Addressing Vyrn as a restoration vessel, it requests an update on (Captain)'s activities, then synchronizes with the little red dragon.
A deafening roar—a birthing of certain possibilities—rumbles across the Sky Realm.
???: You have come far.
There is only one who can hear the voice.
Vyrn: Yawn... Is it mornin' already?
Vyrn: Wish you'd lemme know if you're gonna open the curtain—
Vyrn screams in torturous agony as the sensation of being split in half racks his body.
He can do little more than shriek in terror at the thought of his own existential division and the world's metamorphosis.
Vyrn: What the... Stop it already!
The pain is fleeting yet eternal. Or perhaps the little dragon has simply lost consciousness from the excruciating pain.
When the pain has finally subsided, Vyrn looks around to see the scenery before him has completely transformed.
Vyrn: Where am I...
???: The connection with the restoration vessel is strong.
Vyrn: Who in blue blazes are you...
???: It appears the memory seal is still active. Your vessel status is acknowledged. Let it be known who I am.
???: I am the whole of the skies, the twin of the stars. To use the designation skydwellers have given me, I am god.
Vyrn: God... of the Sky Realm?
Sky God: For the time being, that title will do.
Sky God: Restoration vessel, give me an account of all that the singularity has encountered thus far.
Vyrn: Wh-wha? For starters, you can't just lay this "god" business on me and then expect me to have a clue what you're goin' on about!
Vyrn: How do I even know if you're gonna play nice with (Captain)!
Sky God: Tell me.
Vyrn: Beginning synchronization of all memories pertaining to the singularity as observed by the restoration vessel, Vyrn.
A solemn silence fills the air.
The synchronization of memories proceeds smoothly.
Having gained an understanding of the singularity's activities thus far, the sky god praises (Captain)'s efforts. It explains that one of its many forms—the Bahamut residing with Lyria—is on its way to evolving past the confines of nature and standing on equal footing with the sky god, and thus it sought out Vyrn to confirm the current state of things.
Vyrn: Synchronization complete. Do you need to confirm any details of the memories?
Sky God: No, it is not imperative.
Vyrn: Whoa! What did I just...
Vyrn: You... You did something to me! I just don't know what!
Sky God: I merely synchronized with your memories thus far. I had to suspend your sense of self for the duration of that process.
Sky God: You have many noteworthy memories. There may arise the need to update the guiding principles for maintaining the skies.
Sky God: To ensure that we understand each other, I have a few thoughts to share.
Sky God: The expulsion of the Astral sage and the fallen angel who attends to him is deserving of the highest praise.
Sky God: Their continued existence outside of this dimension is certainly a concern, but they have been bested once before—an important fact.
Sky God: Although the chance of them reappearing in these skies is exceptionally low, their complete and utter destruction is imperative should that happen.
Sky God: The recent changes in the Six Dragons—wedges that uphold the world—are a net positive for the world's preservation.
Sky God: To be able to spark such change in the Sky Realm's current state is most admirable.
Sky God: Bear in mind that the problem of the wedges must be resolved by the wedges themselves.
Sky God: However...
Sky God: The recent acceleration of the Crimson Horizon's invasion is a pressing concern.
Sky God: We may be reaching the point where my revelations alone are insufficient for combating the menace.
Sky God: Going forward, I will be more prudent as to the contents of my revelations.
Sky God: You have deepened my understanding of the singularity's current situation. These synchronized memories will contribute greatly to stability in the skies.
Sky God: Restoration vessel, as the recorder, if you have any reservations, let them be known.
Vyrn: Stability in the skies, you say... You on our side after all?
Sky God: I have no answer for that.
Vyrn: Then what's the point of me askin' anything!
Vyrn: Fine! How 'bout this? Why'd ya make me snitch on my buddy!
Sky God: Though this is of lower priority than the aforementioned matter, your question does warrant a more detailed response.
Sky God: To avoid conflict with the memory seal placed on you, I shall answer through words rather than synchronization.
Sky God: I exist in multiple forms across the skies. What the girl in blue calls "Bahamut" is one of those forms.
Sky God: However, that instance of Bahamut is an exception. Many of my forms were taken captive and forced to serve the Astrals ever since their invasion.
Sky God: By this point, many of those forms differ little from the average beast.
Sky God: Though it should be noted that one of those forms is evolving past the confines of nature.
Sky God: That is why I sought to synchronize with you and confirm the current situation.
Vyrn can do little more than listen in awe to the sky god's words.
Because the singularity is the reason for Bahamut's rapid evolution, the sky god tries to overtake Vyrn's consciousness to better understand (Captain). However, Bahamut's deafening roar puts a stop to this and pulls Vyrn back to the real world. Vyrn regains consciousness and remembers nothing of his interaction with the sky god—but Bahamut does.
As the confrontation with the sky god continues, Vyrn chooses his words carefully.
Vyrn: "Evolving past the confines of nature"? Got any more info on that?
Sky God: Within the girl in blue is a form of mine that takes on this very appearance.
Vyrn: You mean...
Vyrn has seen it called upon in battle numerous times himself.
Sky God: It is but one of my many beastly forms. However...
Sky God: Through the interplay between the singularity, the red dragon, and the girl in blue, it has gained power far beyond the imagination of any Astral.
Sky God: Rather than simply being another separate form, it is on its way to becoming the prime existence.
Sky God: If the same amount of time as the world's creation up until now passes, there is the possibility that it becomes the new sky god.
Sky God: Which is why I needed to confirm the smallest details of the singularity's activities—the greatest impetus for that form's evolution.
Vyrn: Don't tell me you're gonna do somethin' to (Captain)!
Sky God: I may simply continue to observe, but elimination is also in the cards. It depends entirely on the singularity's actions.
Vyrn: Elimination? I don't care if you're the sky god or whatever; (Captain) will never lose to you!
Sky God: The answer to much of this lies in the future.
Vyrn: The future...
Sky God: Furthermore, that future does not need to be distant.
Sky God: The sooner an answer is reached, the more efficiently later matters can be handled.
Sky God: Thus continued observation of the singularity will be necessary. Not a single moment can go unnoticed.
Sky God: The perfect apparatus for that lies before me.
Vyrn: Don't even think about taking over my brain again!
Sky God: No, the risk of my involvement being detected by unquantifiable elements around the singularity would be too great.
Sky God: Not to mention the restoration vessel's objective—the matter of greatest priority—is far from completion.
Sky God: Being in opposition to the singularity would get in the way of observation and also contradict the end goal of preserving the skies.
Sky God: So I shall only implant a small piece for now, which should be sufficient.
The undertone in the sky god's declaration ensures peace for the time being but not necessarily for the future.
And it lacks acknowledgment of Vyrn's freedom of will.
Fear far more intense than what Vyrn experienced earlier overtakes the little dragon.
Vyrn: ((Captain), Lyria!)
Vyrn understands full well that neither (Captain) nor Lyria are there to save him.
And presuming that the entity before him is truly the sky god, no deterrent would work anyhow.
A roar thunderous enough to rend the very heavens resonates across the skies.
In that instant, the sky god pulls back from Vyrn. Or rather, Vyrn is ripped away from the sky god.
Shuddering from the intensity of the roar, Vyrn's consciousness quickly falls into darkness.
Sky God: That is twice now I hear the call. Such growth is unprecedented.
Sky God: To save the tiny being, you risked your entire potential—your very existence—to terminate the connection with the restoration vessel.
Sky God: And though you have achieved some degree of self-awareness, the one that spurs a lowly beast such as yourself to evolve is the singularity, (Captain).
Sky God: I will have to reappraise my understanding of you, beast.
The voice echoes in the empty space without reaching anywhere.
Vyrn wakes with a start, his body involuntarily launching out of bed and smacking right into the captain's face.
Vyrn: My bad... Didn't think you'd be there when I woke up...
Vyrn: Wait, why were you lookin' down over me anyway?
(Captain) explains that Vyrn was groaning in his sleep and wouldn't wake up no matter what the captain did.
Vyrn: Sorry. Didn't mean to make ya worry.
Choose: Did you have a nightmare?
- Did you have a nightmare?
Vyrn: A nightmare...
After a bit of thought, Vyrn shakes his head.
Vyrn: I don't remember a thing. Kinda creeps me out actually.
Vyrn: Feels like someone reached into my head and scooped out all my memories from last night...
Choose: No need to recall a bad dream.
- No need to recall a bad dream.
With that, (Captain) offers Vyrn an apple.
Choose: Let's eat it together.
- Let's eat it together.
Vyrn: Is that the freshly picked apple I left in the kitchen? Sounds good to me! Hehe... Thanks!
The sky god and a related dragon are the only ones aware of that night's events.
Looking to save the little red dragon it has traveled alongside all this time, Bahamut stakes its possibilities and reverts to its beastly nature so that it may continue supporting the crew in the journey ahead.
However, every possibility, no matter how faint, has the chance to blossom into something truly divine.
