Passing of Time
Phoenix
Are these my memories?
Otto Apocalypse
This is Clouded Monastery, the place where you used to live.
It is now year 1475, which is currently the earliest memory we can return to.
Phoenix
Looking at other people's memories is not something to be proud of, Bishop Otto.
Otto Apocalypse
Don't be so cold hearted~ I'm here to help you.
Returning to the past is dangerous. If there is no one on the outside to guide you, you might end up trapped in your own consciousness.
Phoenix
So, why did you bring me to Clouded Monastery?
Otto Apocalypse
Retracing memories happens in stages. For now, we can only enter memories that still have had a strong impression on you.
Hmm... It seems that 500 years is the retention limit for your surface level memories.
In order to jump into your deeper memories, we must find something that can help trigger your memory.
Phoenix
Something that can help trigger my memories...
Otto Apocalypse
Alright, quickly search this temple.
Phoenix
*inspects bed* A plain and simple bed, I just woke up on top of it.
Phoenix
It seems like the real world... Is this really all just a memory?
Phoenix
*inspects wall* An old fashioned wall hanging that seems to portray some ancient legend.
Phoenix
It has some people in the picture that seem sort of familiar.
Phoenix
*inspects table* There is a letter on the table from a far away land.
It's been 11 years now... It seems like a war happened somewhere.
Phoenix
There seems to be no clues here, let's go out and look around.
Phoenix
I've checked through everything here. These are all just common items, nothing of special recollection here.
Otto Apocalypse
The instruments also indicate that your brainwaves didn't show any change... It seems that our objective is not here.
Phoenix
Just like I said before, I've already forgotten.
Otto Apocalypse
Have faith in human memories. You might not remember them now, but these memories do exist in your mind.
Go have a look outside the room. But... Be sure to make the most of your time.
Staying in a memory too long can have some adverse effects on your mind. You must return to reality within 30 minutes.
Phoenix
Why would you wait until now to tell me something so important.
Otto Apocalypse
Don't worry, I will look out for your safety.
Phoenix
*attacking enemies* How could this be? I don't remember anything like this in my house.
Otto Apocalypse
This interference is caused here by your hidden memories.
Don't worry, this is normal when retracing memories.
A few enemies shouldn't be a problem for you, right?
Phoenix
You'd better tell me anything that you haven't told me yet.
Otto Apocalypse
Don't be so anxious, I'll tell you everything in due time.
There appears to be a temple for sacrifices on top of the hill, let's go have a look.
Otto Apocalypse
This temple is cold and cheerless. There's nobody here.
I thought that you would have a lot of friends in your hometown.
Phoenix
If you lived a bit longer, you would also choose to live alone.
Otto Apocalypse
Haha, you're right. I've already been alone for quite sometime now.
There seems to be something on the altar.
Passing of Time Cutscene
Memory Fragment I
Phoenix
What is this place?
Otto Apocalypse
These are memory planes, what's left of a memory you've totally forgotten. It's also the road we must take to get to your deeper memories.
Phoenix
This is also a part of my memories?
Otto Apocalypse
That's right. But they've already lost all their form and content, becoming a pure world shaped by your heart.
However, this is the first time I've seen such a lonely memory plane. Your life sure was quite repetitive.
Otto Apocalypse
Do you have any recollection of that clay statue?
Phoenix
I remember now. Nuwa made it.
Otto Apocalypse
Nuwa, the creation deity of ancient China?
The one who founded the world and who is the mother of all living things.
But in reality, her identity is the same as yours.
You were both survivors of the previous civilization, right?
Phoenix
Yes.
Otto Apocalypse
So it's natural that she would be related to these orbs.
Hmm, interesting.
Anything that mankind cannot explain using science is believed to be magic.
But in the end, it is really just some science that is beyond their understanding.
Eternal Resident Pt.1
Phoenix
This seems to be an even deeper memory. Could you please tell me the current era?
Otto Apocalypse
Oh, there's no way of knowing the exact date. It seems we've returned to a distant time that is impossible to date accurately.
Phoenix
Could it be from so long ago...
Otto Apocalypse
Quickly search for Nuwa. Since she is connected to that figurine, she should be somewhere in this memory.
Phoenix
Here is my memory of Nuwa and I... But why would it be in a place like this?
Phoenix
The person in the distance is... Nuwa?
Let's go and see.
Nuwa
You've finally arrived. Do you know how long I've been waiting here, Jingwei!
Phoenix
...Nuwa?
Nuwa
It sure is hard to believe. You actually have a time where you are so slow.
Come with me into the cave, we must bring back an item before nightfall.
Phoenix
Alright.
---------------------
Otto Apocalypse
Oh, is this girl Nuwa?
Phoenix
She is speaking with me... Can people in the memory see my appearance?
Otto Apocalypse
Yes, you have returned to this memory by the perspective of others who shared your perspective.
She can see you and will talk to you directly.
But remember, we are just spectators of the memory. We cannot alter the course of the memory.
Phoenix
...I won't become too absorbed in people from the past.
Otto Apocalypse
Just follow her for now and see what happens.
Be sure to pay attention to the details of the memory. We mustn't miss any clues about the [spheres].
---------------------
Nuwa
[Nuwa, the ancient goddess of creation. She is a beautiful and powerful girl...]
Oh... Wouldn't it be a bit too general to write it that way?
Phoenix
...Nuwa, what are you doing?
Nuwa
Ahhh, don't break my train of thought! It might not seem like it, but I am creating legends.
Phoenix
Legends?
Nuwa
According to my investigations, this civilization all seems to think they were created from some special existence.
Phoenix
That's quite normal, they don't have any concept of history yet.
It's reasonable to come to such a conclusion.
Nuwa
Therefore, they easily believe those mysterious legends and stories. They also like spreading such stories to others.
Phoenix
You're right, the people of this era have a special belief in legends.
But I don't see what meaning there could be in spreading your name and appearance.
Nuwa
This is only one form!
My goal is to pass our knowledge of how to fight the Honkai to this civilization through these legends.
Phoenix
You mean, this is knowledge from the previous civilization?
---------------------
Otto Apocalypse
Huh, interesting.
The science and societal progress of all early civilizations is based upon legends and folklore.
Mankind's understand of fire, lighting, and other natural phenomenon is all based on legends.
---------------------
Phoenix
Rather than teaching them the difficult theories of physics, chemistry, or sociology directly.
It's better to simply take the knowledge and pack it into a form that can be easily understood by the people of this era.
Nuwa
Right, right. Dressing up knowledge like that is what pretty girls can do.
In order to achieve my goal, we must find the [treasure] of this cave.
Phoenix
*attacking enemies* Enemies!? This cave has also been infested by the Honkai?
Nuwa, get out of here! Go somewhere safe!
Nuwa
Follow me! Don't get lost!
---------------------
Otto Apocalypse
[Treasure]... Could it be those orbs?
Quickly follow her and see what is going on.
---------------------
Nuwa
Found it! We're so lucky! There's so much of it too!
Phoenix
Nuwa... Is this the [treasure] you were talking about? It seems to just be some ordinary clay mine.
Nuwa
There is nothing ordinary about it! The clay excavated from here is absolutely perfect. It is easy to shape, yet durable.
Phoenix
What I mean is, I don't understand what this clay has to do with creating legends.
Nuwa
This is what you don't understand. We will use this clay to make figurines!
Eternal Resident Cutscene
Eternal Resident Pt.2
Phoenix
...Who is this a figurine of?
Nuwa
Heh heh, you should thank me for giving you such a beautiful appearance.
This kind of look is cute, but subtly reveals mature design, it will definitely be a popular one!
Nuwa
Let's just make the hair a fiery red. I'm crazy just imagining how good she will look!
Phoenix
Please don't impose your own interests upon others!
Nuwa
There's also your pitiful stature. Let me just make you a bit more charming.
Phoenix
Ok, what you just said was all pretty insulting to me.
---------------------
Otto Apocalypse
Haha, interesting.
Phoenix
Shut up.
---------------------
Nuwa
Hehe, the looks of this Jingwei will be popular for sure.
Phoenix
Heh, thanks for your kindness.
Nuwa
The clay here is great for making figurines after all. I want to go and get some more.
Take this stone pickaxe and start excavating all the nearby areas.
Phoenix
You sure know how to order others around.
---------------------
Otto Apocalypse
I should remind you that we haven't found any traces of the [spheres].
Don't waste your time on such meaningless things.
Phoenix
I know.
---------------------
Phoenix
Nuwa, before that, I want to ask you something.
Do you remember those quantum computers made using soul steel?
Nuwa
The clay here is great for making figurines after all. I want to go and get some more.
Take this stone pickaxe and start excavating all the nearby areas.
Phoenix
Huh? That's the exact same answer you said before...
---------------------
Otto Apocalypse
*sigh*... It seems that if you don't follow the memory, there's no way to proceed.
Well, nothing I can do about that. Let's just follow what she said and see.
Otto Apocalypse
But... the real Nuwa and her appearance in the legends seem to be quite different.
Phoenix
She's just a naughty girl, that's all.
Oh, I remember that she really likes anything related to anime and manga.
But this civilization doesn't have anything. All she can do is sit and stare at rocks all day.
Wow, this really takes me back.
Otto Apocalypse
It seems that you two got along pretty well.
But don't get too caught up in it. These memories are still somewhere deep within your mind.
You are only able to see them now with the help of the device.
As soon as we leave the memories, you will forget them again as if they were a dream.
Phoenix
What!? You didn't tell me that before!
Otto Apocalypse
Heh... You were the one who said that you wouldn't get caught up in the past.
Phoenix
... You needn't say more, I get it.
---------------------
Phoenix
We've gathered everything we need. Let's head to the mine point.
Phoenix
Huh? Nuwa has come to a stop up ahead, what happened!
Nuwa
Jingwei, come help me!!
Phoenix
What's wrong, Nuwa? What's all the panic about?
Nuwa
I want to go deep inside the cave and have a look, but it seems that there is already some strange person inside.
Phoenix
Is it an enemy? Quick, hide somewhere safe. I'll take care of this.
Time Jade Artifact
Phoenix
There seems to be something different about this enemy!
Phoenix
Falling boulders...? Could this be a result of that last attack?
Uh oh, if this keeps up, the cave could collapse!
How Time Flies
Nuwa
Not good! The cave is collapsing!
Phoenix
Nuwa, run!
Phoenix
Huh? What's that on the floor?
Phoenix
It should be safe here. Nuwa, are you alright?
Nuwa
Whew, we sure ran fast. I didn't expect that the whole cave would collapse like that. It's not easy to find such a source of clay...
Phoenix
As long as you are alright, that's most important. We can find clay somewhere else.
Nuwa
Ahhh!
Phoenix
What's wrong?
Nuwa
I can't find the figurine I had just made. Maybe I dropped it when we were running just now!?
Oh no! I liked that figurine!
Phoenix
Don't worry, Nuwa. I have it here. I picked it up when the chaos started.
Nuwa
Oh, thank you!!
Phoenix
You really like this figurine so much?
Nuwa
Yeah... Because it's a figurine of Jingwei.
Phoenix
What?
Nuwa
...Jingwei is super reliable and so cool. Although she seems difficult to approach, she is even nicer than my own sister.
You really are a good person. I want to pass on your story in hopes that everyone will like you.
Phoenix
Nuwa...
Nuwa
But your face is going to be hard to make. Let me give you some anime style! Yeah!
Phoenix
Ok.
Nuwa
[...She is a pretty girl that is both graceful and tactful.]
Phoenix
Heh, you are still working on your own appearance?
Nuwa
It's important! People are interested in things that are beautiful.
If the main character is a pretty girl, then the story will spread among people naturally.
Phoenix
No, I think the story itself is what is most important.
Nuwa
You just don't understand.
Whether it is animals, weapons, or means of transportation, as lot as it has a pretty girl, people like it.
It's quite simple, really!
Besides, Fuxi and I look almost alike.
If we don't make some changes to differentiate us, we will overlap each other!
Phoenix
Fuxi...?
Nuwa
What's wrong, Jingwei? You don't look so good...
Phoenix
...[Pioneer] ...Fuxi...?
---------------------
Otto Apocalypse
Here it is, your memories have created a new reaction!
Let's jump to the next memory.
Phoenix
...Wait, I want to ask Nuwa a couple more things.
Otto Apocalypse
I can understand the feelings of meeting an old friend, but we don't have time for anything else besides the spheres now.
The next memory has started, let's go!
