|“||To obtain the Lightsphere, Marth headed towards the Tower of Thabes. Hidden under the sands is the ancient city of Thabes, as well as many buried treasures. The legends of this illusion city lured many men to the desert. However... Nobody was ever able to make it back. The sage once said... Don't go near the death desert of Mamorthod, because at there lies a city cursed by darkness.||”|
— Chapter 11 Intro
Marth: Jagen, this place is...
Jagen: This is the death desert of Mamorthod. There was a story about it in the Anri Saga. Preventing my path, first was the desert of death. With its scorching sun and blazing sandstorms. Barbarians of the Desert Tribe and soaring dragons roam. The illusion town was within sight, but I could only remain where I was standing. ...
Marth: Really...? So Anri one came here, and all alone as well...
Jagen: That's right. King Anri began his travels here, to obtain the divine sword, Falchion. And that was so that he could rescue Princess Artemis... Although it will be long, I would like to describe the legend of Anri. 100 years ago... The ruler of this continent, the Holy Kingdom of Archanea, was destroyed by the dragon tribe. Humans were enslaved and lived each day in despair. Some people wielded weapons to fight back, but they couldn't defeat the dragon tribe, and many people died. Also, the humans' only hope, the Archanea royal family, was wiped out, and so the world lost all hope. However, at that time, at a small city called Altea. It was discovered that the princess of Archanea was hiding there. The angered Dolhr Empire sent soldiers to Altea, aiming to capture the princess. That princess... Artemis was prepared to give up her own life to save the citizens. However the citizens of Altea sword that, even if they were completely annihilated, they would protect the princess. Knowing that the princess was still alive, the citizens of Millennium Court gathered a liberation army, and continued the fight against the Dolhr Empire. The leader of the liberation army, Duke Caldas, fought with the royal shield, given to him by Artemis. As a result, he received enormous support. Thanks to his efforts, the war finally began to become in their favor. But then, the king of the Earth Dragons, Medeus, finally moved out. The dark breath of Earth Dragons possessed horrendous destructive power and had the effect of halving the enemy's strength. Under such a dire situation it was thought that Altea's resistance wasn't going to hold out. Then, at that time, a Sage appeared and told the people that at the Ice Dragons' Temple, to the distant north, was a sword blessed by the deities. With that sword, the Earth Dragons could be defeated, but it definitely wasn't an easy task to reach the temple...
Marth: So Anri, to save his beloved Artemis, left on a journey to obtain the sword?
Jagen: Yes, that's right. But I think that's enough for today. We still have a long road ahead of us...
Tiki: Marth!! It's been a long time, it's me Tiki! I really missed you.
Marth: Huh... Tiki!? You came here to meet us? That's right... You're with Gotoh right now. But, I haven't seen you for a while and you've grown. Have you been well?
Tiki: Uh... I've been really lonely. You didn't come to visit me...
Marth: I'm sorry... But, I hadn't forgotten about you, Tiki. I wanted to ask you to come to Altea, after things had settled down.
Tiki: Marth... ...I love you♥
(Xane reveals himself)
Xane: ...As if. I wouldn't say something like that.
Marth: X... Xane!!!
Xane: Ah, I'm relly sorry. I couldn't help it after seeing that serious expression on your face... Sorry, don't be angry. I was ordered, by Gotoh, to wait here for you. While I was waiting I got more and more angry, wondering why I had to do something so boring. So I thought I'd think of a prank to pull on you. But, my Tiki impression was pretty good wasn't it? Huh, what's with the anxious face? Okay, let's go. You want to meet Gotoh, right?
Marth: Xane, how would you know Gotoh? Who are you?
Xane: Oh, that doesn't really matter. Well, don't just stand there. Follow me.
