Ky: Lord... what a man.
Officer: About Sol-sama... is that really okay?
Ky: Yes. If he keeps breaking the rules, he loses his rights.
Officer: But... that woman...
Ky: I know. She's not a normal person.
Officer: Then... why do that to Sol-sama?
Ky: If he wanted to check on I-No-san's true nature, he should've reported to me. That man doesn't even take the time to do that.
Officer: That's true... she said her name was I-No, correct? What do you think, Ky-sama?
Ky: She seemed a master of confrontation... she was confronting Sol for just a moment.
Officer: I see...
Ky: To hide one's power... she is perhaps a military runaway. To be honest, certainly desirable for our Holy Order. Post a guard by her room. If she leaves, contact me immediately.
Alert: Emergency, emergency. All commanding officers please report to the bridge.
Ky: What is it?
Officer: From Rome, Italy, an emergency call!
Ky: What's happening?
Officer: Three Megadeath-class Gears, and about 200 large-class Gears.
Ky: The local army?
Officer: Taking care of the local citizens. I can't estimate their military strength.
Ky: What has headquarters said?
Officer: Reporting... they say to wait for reinforcements.
Ky: I see...
Officer: But then, the citizens will...!
Ky: With their strength now, they can't avoid the destruction of Rome. Thus we must prioritize increasing their strength and destroying the Gears. Is that a proper evaluation?
Officer: It's valid, but...
Officer: Even if we offer rescue, there are consequences. Right now there is nobody looking after the refugees... if the city, crumbles, they will all...
Ky: That is truth. But...
Ky: That is not hope. We are the hope of mankind. Am I mistaken?
Ky: Enter battle preparations! We will secure the safety of the citizens.
Officer: How many shall we send in?
Ky: This is not our official duty. Please ask for volunteers.
Officer: Understood. But then...
Ky: Is something wrong?
Officer: No. I will ask... but...
Ky: I don't care. I'll go even alone. Now then...!
Ky: I-No-san, excuse me.
I-No: Oh, handsome Captain. What was that siren just now?
Ky: This ship is headed towards Rome in order to fight Gears.
I-No: I see... do your best.
Ky: Ah... it's hard for me to say, but we cannot guarantee your safety. I'm sorry, but I must ask you to get off the ship.
Ky: We'll take you to a village closeby.
I-No: Very earnest...
I-No: Work despite the circumstances... even if I hear that, I have no choice.
I-No: You realize it, right? My power.
Ky: Yes. But to me, you're still a civilian. If saving you is my duty, then I must...
I-No: You said Rome, right? There's over a million people there.
Ky: Yes, but...
I-No: Don't misunderstand. I'll do what I want. I don't like things decided for me.
Ky: Forgive me... after all, we were assembled because of duty. We don't have the right to choose people. If you would like to become hope...
I-No: Oh, don't get the wrong impression. I don't want to join your Order. I'll just take what I want.
Ky: You mean... recompensation? Then I'll try to arrange what I can.
I-No: That's okay. I don't want money. Instead... (whispers)
Ky: Ah... that's...!
I-No: A million... million!
Ky: But... that's too...
I-No: Come on.
I-No: Then... later! Come back alive! I'll be waiting in my room...
Ky: I... will do my best.
I-No: How cute, turning bright red! Well... it doesn't look like this'll be boring...
