Episode 10 - Tragedy Knights 
1: War has always been carried out by opposing forces fighting on a battlefield. But wide-scale destruction through powerful weapons alone cannot decide a battle.
2: The goal of the MB system was to carry out the most idealistic war possible, in which the smallest amount of expenditure could result in the greatest amount of destruction.
Episode 6 - Tragic Knights 
3: But that is only the case when the enemy is using regular forces... not MBs. Now, however, battles between MBs have become a reality.
4: I was surprised to find that the results of this accident contained "data" that goes far beyond our research. We cannot allow anyone else to take that suit, which is far more capable than the experimental XX-01-HS.
5: Do you understand what I'm saying, Major?
Episode 6 - Tragic Knights 
1: What's on your mind, Savrai Silver?
2: Hogan! I thought you went back to Guam!
3: Men sort of lose their home when they fail their missions.
4: You... quit the army?
1: I already registered as a Blade Member, if that's what you mean. I just thought it might not be so bad to make a living off fighting other MBs.
2: So that's that. Now we're business rivals! May the best man win!
3: By the way... you live alone, don't you?
1: I heard you were making pretty good money, so I got my hopes up...
2: But a 1DK?!
3: I thought you'd at least have a servant or two!
4: Sorry to disappoint you... hahaha...
5: Hey, I'm the freeloader here. I can't complain.
6: Of course you can't.
7: I'll just try to put up with me until I find my own place! I really appreciate this, man!
8: YOU'LL try to put up with it?!
1: Robbery and murder by an MB in Area E.
2: You going out?
4: I don't think it'll take more than an hour... so just make yourself at home.
1: Alright... I'll crack open a beer or something.
2: He's really got some moves!
1: Tch... we're surrounded!
2: Lately they've been bringing rifles that can pierce through our armor... don't make any sudden moves!
3: But a Blade Member could arrive at any second!
4: Yeah... I know that!
5: Corailles! Take the money and go back to the hideout! I bet there are hardly any Members who can match you in speed!
1: What are you getting scared for? They're only a couple corpses!
2: B-but we killed them... just to get some money...
3: And you call yourself a Tragedy Knight, you little brat?!
1: It... it's Silver!!
1: He's so fast! Is he wearing an HS suit?!
1: That idiot! The money...
3: This is getting worse and worse...
1: Two MBs were arrested, while another fled the scene.
2: /One escaped?
4: Hey, that was quick! It only took you 30 minutes.
5: How'd it go?
6: A quick one got away from me.
1: A quick one? Was it a tuned-up PC suit? Or an HS?
2: Wh-what are you looking at me like that for?
3: I was just wondering... if this was another case that has something to do with you...
4: Hey, come on now!
5: By now, organizations outside of the military have gotten a hold of MB technology. According to what I've heard, at least...
6: That... isn't very good news.
1: Alpha! Looks like the plan failed. Niel and Jose got arrested!
2: What about Corailles?
3: The Member scared him, so he tossed the money up in the air and ran away, just like the little baby he is!
4: Tch... it's so hard to find people who can wear HS suits, so I went to all the trouble of installing an MB in him...
5: What a useless child!
1: We need that money, Alpha... otherwise we won't be able to pay back those goons who loaned us money to get Corailles' MB operation done.
2: Yes... we need to think of some other way...
3: The Tragedy Knights... one of the five MB teams who exist in this city, eh?
4: The other four are Dogma, Metal Golova, Hell Raptuer, and Oeo Falce.
5: You sure know a lot...
6: Just used a Members' host COM to do some light reading... gotta know which sitting ducks I'm going after!
7: Sitting ducks...?
1: Some of them have tuned up their suits. They aren't all sitting ducks.
2: Heh... I know that! I used all my severance pay to tune up my own suit!
3: I made it as fast as an HS suit!
4: So that's why you're broke... and have to stay at my place?
5: Um, er... hahaha! Hey now, no reason to get upset!
6: You have an e-mail in your POB.
7: It's from the Saucepan Home, sent by Perle Perrier.
8: The Saucepan Home... that's John Lithgow's orphanage.
1: You checked up on that too?
2: Yeah... I had to, when I cleaned up the whole incident...
3: You were in his brigade, weren't you? I looked at the records.
4: So then you also know... that I killed the Corporal...
5: I know that you finished off the black experimental suit.
6: John Lithgow died in battle. His MB took so much damage that it couldn't be repaired... and even I know how painful a death could be in that condition.
7: If I had been in your shoes... I would have done the same thing.
1: Thanks, Hogan...
2: Open the e-mail, COM.
1: Hi there, papa!
2: It's Perle! Um... keep this a secret from Lisa, OK? Right now, she's... being kind of weird! She never plays with us anymore!
3: We need you to come home and talk to her!
4: Tell her she needs to play with us more!
5: Bye now! Hurry up and come home, OK? Bye bye!
6: John Lithgow's children...
1: So you're using that POB to watch over them for him?
2: I'm not doing anything that great...
3: I'm just afraid to go and tell them the truth... so this is how things ended up.
4: The truth, huh?
1: 300,000 ND!
2: Do you know what costs that much, Corailles?
3: I invested in you, because I could see that you had a special talent...
4: But then, you decided to ruin the plan to secure the funds for that very investment!
5: [1 ND = 100 yen
6: How do you intend to take responsibility for this, Corailles?
7: H-however you wish, Alpha...
1: I see that you're prepared... good!
2: I'll give you another chance.
3: Your final chance as a member of the Tragedy Knights!
1: Heeeelooooo, all you good children out there! Today we're going to study our addition!
3: /The latest education program... a never-ending supply of food, and a safe environment... I thought that they had all these things because of the money dad was giving us...
1: /But he died a year ago in the war... so then who's been sending us all this money for the past year?
2: /Who's... been reading the mails I send him?
3: /The answer is so simple, it's almost irritating...
1: /Savrai Silver...
2: Big brother!
3: Perle! How've you been?
4: Big brother!
1: It's been six months since you ran out of here without saying anything... where have you been? What have you been doing?
2: Well, a lot of stuff...
3: I started out trying to make a bunch of money so that I could come back and pick Perle.
5: But... then I realized that there are a lot more important things than making money! You know... I can't really explain it well, but I've been working to make this city a better place!
6: This next project will keep me away from you all for a while again, so I came back for a visit.
1: Huh? You're going off somewhere again?
2: Sorry, Perle...
4: I believe in you, Corailles... and I never want you to forget - this place is your home too.
5: You can come back whenever you like.
6: Thanks, Lisa!
7: Big brother...
8: I'll be back, Perle! But I have to go now...
1: Heheh... so that's Corailles' little sister.
2: I thought we might be able to use one of his friends there... but she'll be perfect. This will be our trump card!
3: /I'm going to get my money's worth out of you, Corailles Perrier!
