• Real Story

    As noted in "The roots of Xepher", Maya, the creator of the characters of Xepher, published in Japan an artbook which is a short story about the universe of Xepher. 

    Here is a picture of the first two pages of it:

    Real Story

    Unfortunately not found in our regions (even in Japan it is difficult to get it), I can't show you more. However, I can provide here the English translation of the entire artbook.

    Rursus : Orologio, what are you doing?
    Licht : Why does he look so unhappy?
    Killer : The flowers.
    Killer : Orologio goes there every day to give the flowers as a present.
    Killer : To give to Eculmess, but...
    Killer : Shouldn't it have reached by now?
    Orologio (thought) : That day, you disappeared forever...

    _______________

    Orologio : ......Hey, why...?
    Killer : A promise with Licht, so...
    Killer : You will throw away your life for the woman?
    Killer : And you... why are you asking me "why" ?
    Killer : Do you want to die with Eculmess?
    Orologio (most likely) : You.... I don't know....
    Licht : Just give up, Orologio.
    Licht : Prove to me that she'll come back to life.
    Orologio : I don't need to.
    Orologio : There is no substitute for Eculmess-sama.
    Licht : ......Oh really?
    Licht : Eculmess's role is over.
    Licht : Come on, Rursus.
    Orologio : It couldn't be...
    Licht (most likely) : This child, Rursus...
    Licht : ...Is someone who has the purest blood to inherit the next crown
    Licht : Do you understand?
    Rursus : I'm different from lowly things like you.
    Orologio : The child.... just where did she come from...?
    Licht : The past ...... The distant, distant past ......
    Licht : You were born long ago.
    Licht : Killer got the light that several hundred years ago, I searched for, but could not find.
    Licht : I was confused about where the light was hiding, whether it had obtained existence.
    Licht : You're starting to look sleepy, Orologio. [Licht means that Orologio looks like he's not paying attention]

    Eligible : No...... Don't you understand?
    Eligible : The earth is already harmed.
    Eligible : There isn't a world where humans can live in, with time stopped and without light.
    Eligible : Snow covered the earth and brought death with it.
    Eligible : What if...... there aren't any people who are still alive now......
    Eligible : In her comatose state, Eculmess could not use the sword in the sky's power to protect the earth.
    Eligible : The clouds have all disappeared......

    Orologio (thought) : I knew......

    Eligible : How do you intend to deal with the world?
    Eligible : Will you let it become extinct for Eculmess' sake?

    Orologio (thought) : I knew!
    Orologio : Eculmess-sama......
    Rursus : I'm here now......
    Eculmess : Come...... Rursus.
    Eculmess : Good girl. [lit. Good child]
    Orologio : Eculmess-sama......?
    Licht : What are you...!?
    Killer : Take a good look, Licht.
    Licht : W......What......?
    Orologio : Eculmess-sama!
    Licht : How did this happen......?
    Licht : What are you planning......Eculmess......
    Eculmess : I made Rursus the next Queen.
    Licht : hahahaha
    [judging from the way its written, its Licht's "crazy" laugh]
    Eculmess : Licht...... I'm sorry I didn't tell you......
    Licht : ...... You did it without telling me, huh.... more like you tricked me......
    Licht : Farewell, Eculmess.
    Eculmess : I have to go to earth.
    Eculmess : There is a child waiting for me when I come back to earth......
    Orologio (thought) : Why?
    Killer : Eculmess...... are you going to die?
    Eculmess : No.
    Orologio (thought) : That's enough...... I don't want to hurt this person......
    Eculmess : Rursus, listen to what Licht says.
    Eculmess : You must lead us well......
    Eculmess : Killer, contact Licht and then leave.
    Eculmess : As for Rursus...... this is my last request.
    Rursus : Alright.
    Orologio (thought) : Why?
    Eculmess : Orologio...... please stop time for me.
    Eculmess : It is your ability, I can't go down to earth without your help.
    Orologio : N-no......
    Orologio : I won't do it......
    Eculmess (thought) : Why is your hand shaking?
    Eculmess : Don't cry.
    Eculmess : Orologio was always a crybaby.
    Eculmess : You gave me flowers the first time we met.
    Eculmess (thought) : The morning when I first became queen, that's when.
    Eculmess : Are you sleepy?
    Orologio : Yes.
    Eculmess (though) : It was a true red color when ......
    Eculmess (though) : ......you suddenly arrived, out of breath.
    Orologio : Me! I became a knight!
    Orologio : I became a knight to protect Eculmess-sama!
    Eculmess (thought) : Always give me your protection.
    Eculmess : This seems to be the rare "burohoozu"...... I'm so happy......
    Eculmess : If Rursus becomes Queen, flowers will surely bloom in this sky again.
    Eculmess (thought) : This person should be fiercer, too...
    Orologio : Every day......!
    Orologio : To give flowers as a present......
    Orologio : Yes, of course......
    Orologio : Definately, I'll give them to you for sure......
    Eculmess : I'll been waiting.
    Eculmess : Please do it now......
    Orologio : On the earth, rest in peace for all of eternity......

    (a really thanks to i2lovedeviantart for the traduction) : Orologio, what are you doing?
