Lore

Character Biography:

"I'm going to go on adventures when Pandemonium is at peace."

Female. Age 14 (at the time of the Pandemonium Meeting).
The very first Battle Mage.

During an ambush by the Kashipas, she intuitively learned how to temporarily materialize elemental powers, and incorporate it into the Guardians' unique fighting style, marking the birth of the first Battle Mage in history.
Pretty, kind, and righteous.
She earned the title of Tracker after her first use of Chasers.
She risked her life to go up to the Castle of the Dead and notify Empyrean about Pandemonium's existence.
Currently, she's staying in Central Park and helping Kate resolve strange phenomena in Pandemonium.

Pandemonium Meeting Lore:

This is all my fault.

She means the world to me, and yet I wasn't there to hold her hands when she needed me. I used danger as an excuse to keep her from doing what she wanted. I ignored her desire to help me. This all happened because of the terrible decisions I've made.

But it's not too late. I'll do whatever I can to make things right. I won't let anyone get in the way. Like the first time I took a spear in my hand, just so I could survive, like when I awakened to the power of the Battle Mage to protect everyone, I will rise again. This time, I'll do it for her.

It's not too late. It can't be.

I'm sorry, Pai. From now on, I'll protect you.[2]

Thank you for helping Pipi. She's a smart kid, but she can be unpredictable sometimes. Things with Leiyha... Sigh, if she waited just a little bit longer, I could've gone with her.
She's troublesome, but not a bad kid. You've been with her. You know that, right? I hope you'll continue to be a good friend for her.

I once made a contact with Empyrean. I was so excited that I forgot what I had to do. The fact that I made a contact was amazing, but it was nothing compared to the clean ocean I saw. But I couldn't have my fill because Anton was wreaking havoc in Empyrean at that time.

Pai is naturally shy. If she avoids looking at you, that's not because she doesn't like you. When she was young, she used to hide behind me when strangers tried to talk to her.
She's doing much better now. People who don't know her may not agree, but I know she is. I've watched her grow.

Adventurer, please be careful. I haven't found all the traps that the Kashipas set up, and those that I haven't managed to find actually wounded some people who got careless.
Also, the Kashipas haven't completely given up on this place yet. Please stay on guard.

Want to know about the Guardians? They're my friends who have been helping me restore order in Pandemonium.
They're risking their lives to help me with this, too. I'm lucky to have such great friends.

Ricardo? He's been acting hostile toward me since he lost the match with me during the Pandemonium Meeting.
I don't think I deserve such enmity, but I can't talk to him since we don't speak the same language. I haven't met him since then either.
*Sigh* He's just a Kashipa, but still it doesn't feel good to be hated by someone.

What I dreaded has happened. Even though you took care of a significant number of Kashipas here, they're just a fraction of their organization.
Their leaders are so prideful that they rarely mobilize their entire army, and seeing that it's on the move in such a organized fashion and so suddenly... I wonder if Sarpoza has ordered this.

Many magical associations in Pandemonium are watching you, Adventurer. The Circle Mages, led by Kate and Rhum, and us Guardians, for example. All these associations are also at the top of their game.
For now, they're just watching the Kashipas, and things will go bad really quickly for the Kashipas if they ever decide to intervene.

We Guardians weren't strong in the beginning, but we trained hard and eventually mastered the Battle Mage skills. Now we're neck and neck with Kashipa and all other organizations when it comes to physical force.
In other words, we're now strong enough to stop all the injustice that's been plaguing Pandemonium.
I'm proud to be a Guardian and their leader.

What happened in Nighttime Skyscraper has drawn the attention of the other organizations in Pandemonium. One by one, they started moving toward Harlem.
They probably want information. Since the Apostle's egg dropped in Pandemonium, not a day has gone by without some kind of trouble. Everyone must want to find out what in blazes is happening in this place.
*Sigh* And I really hope that's all they want.

Ricardo has disappeared without a trace. Do you think the rumor is true, that the Kashipas really have taken him away?
I have a feeling that something bad is about to happen.

NiuIcon.png Niu It didn't even cross my mind that Pai might follow me to Harlem.
PaiIcon.png Pai I'm sorry...
NiuIcon.png Niu Don't be, Pai. I know you were just worried about me.
I'm sorry that you went through such a terrible thing and I wasn't there to protect you.
PaiIcon.png Pai Niu...
NiuIcon.png Niu Adventurer, I know it's late, but let me thank you for protecting Pai. She means a world to me. If something happened to her-
There are no words to describe my gratitude for you. I'll repay you one day. I promise.

(Post-Pandemonium Meeting)

The Guardians at the Black Market have been ambushed, and all of them have sustained serious injuries.
They're not the only ones. Here and there, small and big organizations are being raided by the Kashipas.
Is Kashipaーno, Sarpozaーwaging war? If it is, why?
Unexplainable things have been happening, and it's as if someone's been orchestrating them.

(Post-Pandemonium Meeting)

Rumor has it that Ricardo went beyond East Harlem, but he hasn't showed up for the Meeting.
His going beyond East Harlem means that he should've returned to Kashipa and showed up for the Meeting, where he could see me and you.
He didn't. What is he up to? Or is he...?
I can't shake off this bad feeling in a corner of my mind.

(Post-Pandemonium Meeting)

We took care of Walkman and Sergei, but Kephadona got away while we were distracted by the other two. She was seen running in the direction of East Harlem.
She was critically wounded, but she managed to run away so quickly. Unbelievable!
If she really returned to East Harlem, then we might see her again, right? I won't let her get away again next time.

(Post-Pandemonium Meeting)

I still don't think what Pai did was wrong, and Kate took her without asking me first to punish her. I don't understand.
Balance between the organizations? A negotiation to stop things from getting worse? Neither makes sense to me. Even if Pai was in the wrong, Kate should've taken her side. At least we should've.
