SriRATE TIMES CALL OUT FOR 
THt VALISSVVORD 



nom Of THf SnRIT W0RLD ntOVOKlD ancir in their guardian 

Eons ago...There was a world called GIYA where people llved 
peacefully and falthfully under thelr guardlan protection. Klng 
Aspher of the Splrlt World was a follower of thls guardian. But 
the King’s son, Gallagher, had another plan. 



He was scheming to conquer the whole world. Once Gallagher 
ascended to the throne and received the ring of Titan which 
possesses infinite power, he immediately started a war to take 
over the entire world. His action angered their guardian so 
greatly that he sealed the entire population of GIYA into a crystal 
pillar and buried it deep under the ocean.

KisufmrcTros Of THi osRk roRCfs 

Onc e»ecmficvi rs^eniag thc revi moon broke through tlie clouds 
anci calmcci the nv>tk»n of the ^ea. The gigantic crystAl piHar 
5 ucidenly rose toward the sk\ with a thunderous noise, parting 
the Paclfic Ocean in two. King Gallagher and hls Splrit World 
peopJe wefe res4jrTected after thousands of years in silence. It 
did not take too long fbr them to take over the entire world. 

Queen Valna s Dream Wor1d was conquered despite their 
courageous fight. Now the whole world is under the rule of 
Gallagher. The Valts warTk>r. Yuko Ahso, is gone. Who is left to 
fight these Dark Forces...? 

TME KEBflS UTfO F9CHT FOR fUSTICE 

AJI who rebelied against King Gallagher gathered under Cham, a 
daughrer of the Spirit World. to defeat the king s forces. To 
discourage rhe rebel fbrces, King Gallagher ordered to execute 
Queen Valrva. Cham arKl her companions learned of the execu- 
tion. but the enemy was tcx) great for them to fight. 

Then, a voice was heard: “Let me go and fight for you!” The 
voice belonged to Lena. who was the strongest fighter among 
the rebels. 

VOfCf OF THEIR GODDE5S REVERBERATES FROM ABOVE 

Chĉim, the leader of the rebel forces, was wondering what to do. 
Although Lena w^is the greatest warrior, it wĉis too risky to let 
Lena fight alone against the Dark Forces. 

“Cham, let Lena go to fight!” 

The voice reverberated from above. The voice was none other 
than Yuko, who had become their goddess. Now Lena headed 
for Castle Vĉinity, which once belonged to the people of the 
Dreĉim World and now was a fort of the Dark Forces. A new 
Valis warrior is about to be born... 


CTER INTRODUCTION 



LENA BRANDE 

She is only 16 years old, yet she is the 
strongest warrior of the rebel forces. 
She possesses a courage to fight, but 
she is also a kind and gentle, peace 
loving maiden, Her unique quality of 
balance in both peace and courage 
has made her a Valis Warrior. Now, 
with the Valis Sword in her hand, 

Lena is about to fight for her people. 



YUKO 

Once Yuko had fought the Dark 
Forces with the Valis Sword. After her 
victory, she went to rest in the clouds. 
Although she sends Lena to conquer 
Gallagher, her heart is heavy with the 
decision she has made.
