Eisenkrone Academy

Episode17: Shadows of The Past

While Rei wandered off with Lloyd, Cecil and Mashiro headed out to look for Alice in the other direction. Being alone, now after the break up with Kain had them both nervous, unsure what to say. In their distraction, they don’t notice the ground coming to an end beneath them and they both fall. Without even thinking, Cecil takes Mashiro in his arms to shield her from the impact with his body, but instead of the thorny bushes or sharp rocks they might have dreaded, they land in an idyllic flower garden, hidden away within the otherwise dark and somber forest. Realizing they are still holding on to each other, they start to pull away…then stop. As flower petals dance in the air around them, they look in to each other’s eyes and they realize that this is where they both belong and they lean in for the kiss.

Cecil is happier than he ever has been in his life, as a large weight lifts from his shoulders. They lie there on the flower bed, talking, until Cecil blissfully drifts off to sleep on Mashiro’s lap.

Fire.

Fire all around him.

Horrified, Cecil looks around and sees houses burning all around him. He realize that it must be a dream, but he cannot break out from it. In fact, to his horror and surprise, he can barely do anything. Looking at his body, he sees that it’s back to what it was as a young boy. That’s when he realize where he is, the houses, the scenery…

“- Welcome home, Cecil.” he hears behind him.

Turning around, he see another boy, slightly older than himself, with a fresh burn mark on his face, a mark, he knew, he got while saving Cecil from the fires in their house. It was Kage, his older brother. Cecil merely stares at him, as memories that he had been suppressing for over a decade washes over him. His life with his family, and how it was taken away from him the day pirates came and burned it all down. His family died that day, including his brother, that’s what he thought but..

- “I survived”. Kage confirmed. He told Cecil about how he survived and how he spent the last decade searching for his brother, his family. He finally arrived at Durmstrang but only got there after Cecil had gone off to Eisenkrone. While there he prepared the city for Cecil’s return. Being a strong mindmender himself, he had taken over the city, controlling the minds of those in power and punishing anyone who had ever harmed Cecil growing up. Again, just like the time back in Dorfstadt, he asks Cecil to give up on the people of Eisenkrone. They will only hurt and betray him, the only people you can trust are family. Once again, Cecil is tempted, life at Eisenkrone has been rough and often unfair for him. But memories of Lloyd, The Military History Club, and most importantly, Mashiro, makes up his mind. The people at Eisenkrone is his family. Kage is hurt by this, and refuses to accept it, and leaves the dream with the parting message “Did you like your birthday present?”. But before being able to ask him what he meant, Kage is gone and Cecil is alone amongst the burning houses. As the fear begins to take hold once again, he hears someone calling for him. Following that voice, he is eventually able to escape and wakes up to Mashiro’s face. She apparently had tried to wake him for some time.

He immediately relaxes and they continue their talk from before, and they decide not to tell anyone about their new relationship, especially not due to the rumours spread by Kain. Their talk is interrupted though by a shriek. As they hear Alice’s voice they are reminded of why they went out to begin with. They charge out, following the sounds of commotion but they arrive too late. Alice is once again back in her pink frilly dress and Rei is busy grumpily stomping a rogue sock at the ground. Lloyd soon joins up with them, and he explains what happened, while avoiding any mentions of the unmentionables. They group up back at camp, rejoin their respective groups and since there is still time left, they head out for one final hunt.

Episode16: The Storm’Beast Hunt

Lloyd and Cecil runs out in to the forest. Cecil hasn’t spent much time in forest terrain so leaves the tracking to Lloyd. Fairly soon they come up on a strange dog-like beast who fights using bites and nerv-chilling howls. However, they soon defeat it and move on. The come upon what seems to be a storm-bear cave. They consider challenging the bear, but then they hear a girlish scream. It’s Gunther, meaning Mashiro is in danger. They dash towards them.

Gunther is getting his behind thoroughly thrashed by tiny monkeys. Cecil jumps up to save Mashiro and Lloyd’s grabs a vine and swashbuckles to save Gunther. A battle of the ages ensues. Finally, the monkey leader, who was dual wielding a knife in one hand and his severed tail in the other, goes down, refusing to be captured and instead dies free.
The group begins to wind down and look over the wounded (ie: Gunther who got knocked out right at the start) , but they get no time to rest. This time it’s a deafening roar from the way they came, the Storm Bear has woken up and is not happy. Mashiro stays to protect the unconscious Gunther and Cecil and Lloyd runs off to see what’s going on. Apparently Jacob angered the Storm bear by going inside the cave and Sanchez is trying to protect him. Cecil and Sanchez charges in and attacks its lower body, and Lloyd jumps up on his back and tries to calm it down the only way he knows how. He begins whispering calming words and riding the bear in circles around the cave, teaching it to trot and canter. Meanwhile Jacob does something at the back of the cave.

Through their combined efforts and mental and physical attacks, Cecil eventually manages to capture it in to one of the bottles. Lloyd is uneasy about it holding though, since the bottles where not supposed to hold such powerful beasts. They all return to Mashiro where she’s set up camp. Jacob reveals that he’s brought a storm-bear cub with him. He names it Usagi, after his stuffed bear. Usagi wanders off a bit to Gunthers dropped backpack and licks up the liquid from a crushed container. Drinking what is revealed to be a love potion Gunther planned on using on Mashiro, Usagi evolves in to a Care Bear.
Before the group has time to recover from their surprise, there’s a sound from the bushes. Rei wanders off to Lloyd, relieved to finally have found him. Lloyd is happy to see her but wonders were Alice is. According to Rei, Alice got lost somewhere, but reassures Lloyd that there is no need to worry.

Lloyd immediately worries and wants to go out and find her. After a short and heated mental argument, Cecil and Rei agree to split up in two new teams to search for her. Lloyd and Rei, and Cecil and Mashiro. Jacob, Sanchez and Usagi stays behind to rest and watch over Gunther.

Rei leads Lloyd in to the forest but Lloyd soon realize that Rei accidentally took him the wrong way, and not the way she was coming from. And to Rei’s dismay, Lloyd quickly finds the trail back to where Rei apparently left Alice. Only to find the place abandoned. They do however find two pair of tracks leading to a small lake.

To Lloyd’s shock and horror, it would seem that Alice, tired from the walking, decided to wash herself in the lake. Somewhat startled, Alice answers him, and reassures him that she is quite decent, still wearing a few layers of undergarments. Lloyd, still worried that it might not be quite as many layers as there should be continues to look away, until he hears Alice give out a shriek. Alice is under attack. By her own clothes no less.

Lloyd stands stunned and troubled as this is an opponent he cannot fight. He can’t raise his sword against the clothes without ripping the fabric of a lady’s clothes. But as he stands there in despair, seeing the clothes tearing at Alice’s remaining unmentionables, he realize that he needs to act. Using everything he learned from Principal von Krakow along with the know-how that comes from a true Britannian upbringing, he blows up a wind, tearing the rampaging clothes towards him where he eventually folds them neatly in to submission. It is then Lloyd spots the owner of the second pair of footsteps, a hooded man hiding in the trees.

He goes to run after him, but is stopped by a screaming Rei, calling out for Lloyd to save her from a flying sock. Seeing that Rei is clearly stronger than the small piece of fabric, he encourages her to fight back and instead heads out after the hooded and suspiciously Russian looking man, though he sadly lose track of him after a while, along with any hope of identifying Mikhail the culprit .

Meanwhile, Cecil and Mashiro have wandered off on their own…

Episode15: At the Gala

Preparations are in full swing, and Cecil has to work hard to keep up.
While on an errand to the assassin’s quarter, he hears murmurs of plans for mischief during the Gala. Anita and the girls seems to want to punish Alice for going on a date with Lloyd. Cecil is concerned and decides that he must keep an eye on them.
Lloyd meanwhile, oblivious to any sinister plans leather pants-suits up. He borrows a Britannian suit from the Military History Club’s old wardrobe storage and goes to escort Alice.

They meet outside Alice’s room and with an unusually vigilant Cecil, and move on to the Gala. Once there, Lloyd and Alice are announced on entering, some shouts and muffled curses are heard from the female demographic. Anita welcomes them ever so warmly. Meanwhile, Cecil moves on to the back walls so he can keep an eye on everyone, including The Girls.
It does not take long before the game begins, the girls whispers between one another and Snowdrop is sent out, homing in on Alice. A desperate Cecil is forced to act before thinking, resulting in him grabbing on to Snowdrop and kissing her. Everyone is shocked and appalled, including Snowdrop. Alice and Lloyd tells him off. Snowdrop is horrified, telling him in no unclear fashion that his lips are not made for kissing girls.

Somewhat taken aback by this, Cecil only barely has time to stop Rose from serving Alice a toxic drink, only to turn to deal with Violet…This kept on for most of the evening, until after the dinner where Anita, as the hostess, thanked everyone for coming by playing a piece on her harp. She played beautifully, and everyone was engrossed in her performance, everyone except Cecil, who saw Anita readying herself for the kill. Just as Anita let her Harp bow sail towards an unsuspecting Alice, Cecil threw himself on top of Alice. Before Lloyd has time to reprimand Cecil for his clearly unsuitable behavior, he sees Anita’s harpoon looking Harp bow sticking out of Cecil. He quickly sweeps the table cloth from the table to try and stop the bleeding. Lloyd is still confused and has a lot to say about Cecil’s strange and uncouth behavior throughout the evening, but realizing that Cecil just saved Alice from a terrible accident that happened on Anita’s part, he decided to let it go for now. Anita, clearly irritated tells everyone that she is ever so sorry, and that her fingers slipped. Cecil, secure in the knowledge the he kept his mistress safe, gently falls in the comfortable embrace on unconsciousness.

A few days after his injuries at the Gala, Cecil and Mashiro has one of their many Nipponese-study sessions. Kain interrupts them and tells Mashiro to get away from Cecil. For once, Mashiro stands her ground and refuses to go along with what Kain says. Kain grows angry, telling her that she belongs to him and not to argue. The wounded Cecil talks back. Realizing that Cecil is still to wounded to go up against Kain, Mashiro steps in before Cecil gets a chance to defend her, and instead does so herself, breaking up with Kain on the spot. Kain looks at Cecil with murder in his eyes, but leaves angrily, calling Mashrio various unkind names. Cecil comforts the sad Mashiro, though is careful to control his feelings for her.

A few days pass and another field trip happens, this time it’s a competition in the nearby forest. The class is divided into pairs with the aim of collecting storm beasts by storing them in to storm-containing bottles. Points and grades are determined by how strong and how many beasts are collected, and the winners gets top marks. Each group is assigned a signal flare, using it will alert the teachers and get them to help you out of the forest, but also disqualify the group who used it.

Groups are:
Cecil and Lloyd (to Rei’s great disappointment)
Rei and Alice (again, to Rei’s great disappointment)
Sanchez and Jacob
Mashiro and Gunther

Alice is dressed in one of her normal frilly dresses, and Rei in heavy military gear. She looks at Lloyd with a determined and not entirely sane stare.
Gunther is greasing up on Mashiro hard after news has gotten around that she and Kain has broken up and Kain started spreading rumors about Mashiro being “easy”. He conspicuously pats his backpack knowingly.
The teacher fires his gun and the teams dash out in separate directions. The Storm’Beast Hunt has begun!

Episode14: My Fair Commander

Even though the two train in their respective ways, classes continue as always, and requires no less attention.

Jacob eventually returns to class after staying in The Capitol for rehabilitating training from storm madness. He is for the most part himself, but there is something… off with him, and he seems unbalanced. And he is not the only one.

Alice is still noticeably shaken by the events at the festival. She is unable to properly concentrate on classes, instead constantly keeps her eyes open for would be assailants. The Tutonian military presence at the school is a constant reminder of what happened to her during the festival and Ralph’s and Cecil’s supply of smelling salt was running dry due to her increased fainting fits.

Lloyd and Cecil are worried. They agree that Hildegard needs to talk to her and explain that she and her men are not the enemy. Lloyd goes to talk to Alice in her room and Cecil goes to ask Hildegard to come along with him. Hildegard explains that she has tried talking with Alice previously, but without success. Lloyd listens to Alice talk about her worries and her fears about the military and how everything associated with them brings back all the memories of the festival. And on cue, Hildegards booming and authoritative voice brings the conversation short. Hildegard and Cecil enter the room and in true Tutonian military custom, Hildegard introduces her name, title and before getting to her purpose of wanting to apologize, Alice screams. Utterly terrified, she runs in to one of her other rooms. Ralph glaring daggers at Cecil, runs after her.

The room goes quiet. Lloyd, somewhat aghast points out, delicately but firmly, that it is not in good etiquette to barge in to a lady’s private chambers dressed in full plate mail and start shouting, especially considering the circumstances. Lloyd glares spoons (not nearly as sharp or painful as daggers, but still not entirely pleasant) at Cecil.
Hildegard is utterly confused and wonders how else one is supposed to talk to someone.
Lloyd takes it upon himself to teach her…

Bringing Hildegard with them to the Military History Club’s old dorm, Lloyd uses a spare chalkboard and begins teaching her. First with “Apologies 101” and slowly working on to more advanced maneuvers, such as back straitening chestplates and random bursts of musical showtunes. Finally, switching out in her armour for a dress, Hildegard was finally ready.

After both Lloyd and Cecil urged Alice to give the Commander one last chance, they formally introduced Alice and Hildegard. This time it worked. Alice didn’t show any sign of her old fear and the Commander could finally explain and apologize for what happened. After a nice, long talk, Alice had calmed down and had gotten determined to put what happened during the festival behind her.

Just in time, since Alice had been invited to the Assassin’s Quarter’s Gala’s and she had not been able to prepare for it at all. This being the first such gathering she’d been invited to since coming here, it would have been awfully rude not to show up. And as such, it would also be necessary for her to have a companion to introduce her to everyone. She asks Lloyd, and he agrees. Cecil is tasked for butler duty during the event and they begin preparing at once.

Lloyd and Hildegard excuse themselves and Lloyd escorts Hildegard to her quarters, while Cecil stays behind to help Alice make the arrangements. Hildegard immediately changes back to her armour, ignoring any and all comments from her men. Afterwards, Lloyd thanks her for her help and Hildegard brusquely states that Cecil owes her one for this. But Lloyd can’t help but notice that Hildegard had folded her new dress very carefully on her desk.
He ponders…
The following weekend, Lloyd, Cecil and Alice prepares for the Gala…

Episode13: Special~u Training~u
The Lost Episodes

Due to a freak accident, no whole recordings remain of some of the following episodes, but thanks to the show’s strong fanbase, we’ve been able to recover most of what happened. But, due to some inconsistencies with their reports, there might be some mix ups, we apologize for this inconvenience.

A day or two after their return to Eisenkrone, the principal sends for Lloyd.
Lloyd eventually finds the principal’s office, a solid stone door, with impressive statues on either side. Somewhat nervously, he knocks on the solid stone mass, he hears the principal say something and the passage opens up.

The principal greets Lloyd and gives his condolences. He explains that he knows who and what Lloyd is and that he wishes to teach him how to control his powers, before they end up controlling him. He explains the Megamanius principle and what happened to Lloyd after killing the Jinn. All Storm beats, but most noticeably those strongly associated with one of the four elements have their powers stored within their heart. When striking such a beast’s heart, thus killing it, a Sturmmeister has the ability to draw upon that power, taking it as his own, storing it within his own heart. By striking down the Jinn, Lloyd now has the ability to bend wind to his will, and the principal is going to teach him how. Using his own ability, the principal borrows a small portion of Lloyd’s power and begins teaching Lloyd how to use wind to fling women’s underwear in to the air. A skill he assures him is vital to mastering his powers…

Not long after Lloyd has begun training with the principal, Hildegard calls for Cecil. Since she is to be stationed at the school for the time being, ensuring that there will be no more attacks against the school, she thought that it was time that she repaid her debt to Cecil for his assistance during the duel. She would teach Cecil to be a true Lancer. Weighing him down, first with weights, then with full heavy armour, she drilled stabs, parries and counters with him, the weight leaving him no room for unnecessary movements.
Their training continues and things slow down for a while though Cecil is still haunted at night by the strange dreams.
