"<You're not the only one, believe me.>" he then pets Sylva
"You talk as if Sakura would deny a simple request like that one." said Grant, with a chuckle
Seth shrugs "<Eh, she might not be up to it.>"
-Umbra and mons arrive here outside the temple-
Umbra: Well, we’re home.
For the rest of our days…
-They head inside-
-At that point, I was determined to isolate myself. Out of shame, out of fear, out of many reasons to stay away from the outside world.-
-Umbra is standing outside, as if waiting for someone. Lumos is next to him-
-But I remembered Duolis’ promise, and so I waited for her-
-And waited. And waited…-
Umbra: She… She’s not coming…
-He retreats into the temple. Lumos, concerned, follows-
-My heart broke. And I lost all hope.-
-From then on, I was more determined than ever to shut myself away; not only to avoid causing pain to others, but to avoid causing pain to myself.-
-Umbra has shut himself off in the deepest part of the temple. Styx, Lumos, and Mata Nui have all gathered around him-
Lumos: <Umbra… You aren’t being fair to yourself…>
Umbra: –turned away- No… It’s all I deserve…
Mata Nui: <We can’t stay here forever…>
Umbra: Then what do we do? Expose ourselves and face the judgment of the entire world?
Styx: <I… I just want to see you happy again…>
-After a while, the Ghosts just walk away sadly-
-It was like that for centuries.-
-Then, one day…
-Umbra is led outside to Mata Nui by Styx and Lumos. He removes his hood and winces-
Umbra: Ack… Sunlight…
-He shakes his head-
Anyway, what did you want to show me, Mata Nui?
Mata Nui: <Well, I was out patrolling the island when I stumbled across this!>
-Hands Umbra a strange parchment…-
-Which turns out to be a brochure for visiting Unova-
Umbra: This… This is…
-He looks through it, fascinated-
The world… It’s changed so much… But how did this end up all the way out here?
-Then, in the sky, he happens to notice a cloud formation resembling Giratina’s face-
-As he stares at it, wind blows across the formation to make it seem like it’s winking-
-For the first time in 600 years, Umbra smiles-
-It was then I realized… My lord had forgiven me. Not only that, he had shown me a new world, one rife with possibilities.-
-There was hope after all.-
-Umbra turns to his mons-
Everyone? I have decided it would behoove us to leave this abandoned island and forge a new path in a new world.
-The ghostmons cheer-
Lumos: <Where do we start?>
Umbra: Let’s try Hoenn! It’s close by and is sure to have changed in bountiful ways!
-And so, everyone hops onto Mata Nui, who rockets off-
-It was shortly after that that I met the J-Team.-
-And… well, you all know the story from there.-

Sylva: <YAY!> -Jumps-
<Let's go see Sakoorah!>
-There is a small, almost imperceptible flickering in the air as a figure that has been following Jacob for a while decides to drop their SEP field.-
???: Good afternoon, Mr Iridis.

-Lina is looking for Kaius-
-Both Jacob and Regina freeze, but Regina reacts first by shoving Jacob forward and throwing up a Protect-
Jacob: -Stumbles forward, and whirls around to look at the one who made himself known- "........."
-He puts a hand on Regina's shoulder, and reluctantly she lowers the Protect- "...... You... you know me? .... I'm not sure whether or not to feel flattered or threatend."
-The figure, who is wearing a Cipher uniform that has been repainted with the Galactic colours and a Snag Machine over his arm, takes a step towards Jacob.-
???: The latter would be more appropriate. And if you do not recall who I am, then I will take a moment to jog your memory. The name "Titan" is familiar to you, is it not?
Jacob: -See's the Snag Machine, and even though he doesn't know what it is, he can guess what it does and recalls Regina-
-When the figure reveals his name, Jacob feels a chill and sinking feeling in his chest, though he does his best not to show any emotion save for a cold hard glare-
".... So then.... you're Titan..."
-He flashes back to something Alice said at the Unova League-
"You don't find Titan unless he wants you to find him."
"I see. Then the best way to find him would be to give him a reason to want to be found."
But... he found me...

-Kaius is resting from yesterday's battle.-
-After the Matoran and Turaga returned to the village, a sixth Toa was quickly chosen.-
Toa Dutaro: <So... now what?>
Turaga Furema: <Now that the Toa have been united, only the Makuta remains..>
Toa Hako: <And where is he?>
Furema: <Deep beneath this very volcano, as far down as one can possibly go.>
Skye: <...This'll be difficult...>
Furema: <Actually, the journey is quite easy. It's the Makuta himself that will prove to be difficult.>
Rano: <Well, let's get moving, then!>
-They start to leave.-
Furema: <Farewell, Toa and companions. Good luck.>
Lina: -to Kaius- So how was the battle? Did you help kill the Ghost Lord?
-Mata Nui gulps, and follows along with the others-
??? Titan: Indeed I am. And I am here to deliver a message on the behalf of my current employers. One that should hopefully demonstrate to you why attempting to interfere in Cipher's affairs is a course of action best left avoided.
-He unclips a Pokeball from his belt.-
Titan: To business. We have been observing you and your companions for long enough to know that your pride will not allow you to refuse the offer of a battle. Not that I am giving you the option to refuse in the first place.
Kaius: -sits up- Yes, I did... he became a monster in form as well as at heart.
-As the group descends, any light anyone can muster gradually diminishes.-
Skye: <...Is this a good time to mention I absolutely hate dark caves?>
Jacob: -Watches Titan grab a Pokéball- "............"
"Heh. Alright then. You're mistake, old man. I'll wrap this up quick and put in a good strike or two for Herbert while I'm at it. Cipher? Let me remind you it doesn't matter what silly costume you wear, you'll go down the same way."
Lina: He DID?! And I missed it?!
- Buries her head in her hands-
Rrrgh, first that Amhliadh guy and now this...
Styx: <Eh, I can see fine.>
Edge: <..... I can feel the darkness everywhere.... I'd usually be happy with this advantage but....>
-Lity and Joy stopped a ways back as Lity is terrified of the dark-
Skye: <I'm with the formerly-homicidal former Bisharp on this one...>
Dutaro: -tries to light the way, but the light stays within the flame- <...This is creepy...>
Edge: <........ Try to keep that fire burning. It's not a matter of being able to see. I don't like this darkness.... I'd rather we keep as much illumination as possible.> -Keeps going on further-
Pi and Clan Warden are here, and free for interaction.
He's pacing back and forth, muttering to himself.
-Titan's expression remains impassive.-
Titan: We shall see. Gamma, take the lead.
-The Hydreigon stretches his necks as he emerges from his ball.-
Gamma: <Awaiting orders, sir.>

Lina: This guy who was in the resistance with us, but was really working for the Ghost Lord.
I think he was trying to woo me with his charms and good looks too...
Arika: -holds Chrome's hand-
Jacob: -His face twitches slightly- ".... A Hydreigon? Go Discord!"
Discord: -Is dead silent, staring down the Hydreigon, as his Guard Bracelet glows and his Sand Stream is activated-
<Let's do this.>
Jacob: "Round one, opening move. Discord, Ice Fang!"
Discord: -Rushes at Gamma, and lunges at him to chomp the Hydreigon with a sub-zero bite-

Dutaro: <I'm doing my best— >
-The flame goes out, as an eerie wind blows through the cave.-
Leana: <...Caves aren't supposed to have wind blowing through them...>
-Kaius remains silent. After a few seconds, he finally speaks.-
Kaius: ...He would likely be in Spectra right now, would he not?

Edge: <..... They don't. That was no natural wind. Can you try lighting another fire?>

-Gamma is hit by Discord's Ice Fang and buffeted by the sandstorm, being sent floating back a fair distance as a result.-
Gamma: <Taking heavy damage, sir.>
Titan: Hmm... Gamma, Focus Blast. Aim carefully.
-Gamma nods, then charges up a large ball of energy in his mouth before sending it hurling into the sandstorm.-
Lina: Possibly. Maybe not now that his lord is dead. Why?
