Saint Martha

Saint of the Dragon and Sea

Martha: A normal... Yes, the kind of normal girl you'd find in any town.

Martha: I lived happily with my little sister and brother, even though we quarreled from time to time.

Martha: I was born in Bethany, and raised in the same town.

Martha: I thought that I'd live my life the same as everyone else.

Martha: ...No. Actually, how shall I put it? Perhaps I never even thought about the future.

Martha: Because I was always busy. What should we have for dinner tonight? What would tomorrow's weather be–

Martha: I was always running around, even when "He" was there.

Martha: While my sister listened to "His" words, all I did was worry about making guests feel welcomed.

Mash: Martha, you were a girl who put her family first. I think that's admirable.

Fujimaru 1: You're naturally friendly.

Fujimaru 2: I think it's nice.

Martha: I wonder about that. Aren't you disappointed?

Martha: Saints whom people love always seem to shine...Yes, like Jeanne d'Arc.

Mash: Both Jeanne and you seem like shining saints to me.

Mash: In loving people, you became their hope. That's the sort of women you are.

Mash: That's why I think you equally deserve to be called saints.

Martha: ...Thank you, Mash Kyrielight.

Mash: Don't mention it–

Dr. Roman: Oh, sorry to interrupt, but I'm detecting multiple magical signatures in the sea ahead.

Dr. Roman: Just as Martha feared, there's some sort of distortion on the Marseille coast as it's being repaired.

Mash: Doctor, do we need to dive under the sea?

Martha: I doubt it. If push comes to shove, my Tarasque will guide the "swarm" to the shore.

Mash: Swarm?

Fou: Fooou?

Dr. Roman: Guide? Wait, is Fou there with you?

Martha: Yes. That's a swarm, without a doubt. My trait allows me to accurately detect that.

Martha: A swarm of an incomplete subspecies of dragon. Something that shouldn't be in this area of the 15th century.


Mash: ...That's the roar of a wyvern!

Dr. Roman: I see! As expected of the Saint of Dragons! You sensed the swarm of wyverns gather.

Fujimaru 1: Prepare for battle!

Fujimaru 2: Martha, call the Tarasque!

Martha: ...This is nothing. This coast was once part of the Tarasque's domain.

Martha: Born of Leviathan, created by God on the Fifth Day– he is a fierce monster many a brave man tried to slay.

Martha: Now the Tarasque exists with me. The sad dragon who knows not of love.

Martha: Go now Tarasque, wielding a burning heat equal to the sun...

Martha: Grant momentary peace to these creatures made pitiful by the moment of their birth–

Dr. Roman: St. Martha's magical energy is rising! I-Is this turning into a battle of Kaiju Tarasque vs. Wyvern Army?

Mash: The wyvern swarm is approaching! Time for battle, Senpai!


Mash: Battle's over. No– more are coming! Confirming a trailing swarm!

Martha: There's just no end to them! This is annoying!

Mash: Huh?

Dr. Roman: Hm?

Fou: Fou?

Fujimaru 1: Martha, did you just–

Fujimaru 2: I must have imagined it.

Martha: Did something happen, everyone? Come on, let's hang on a little longer. FIGHT!

Fujimaru 1: FIGHT!

Fujimaru 2: I must have imagined it.

Mash: Um, uh, right. We're going to continue the battle! Senpai, your orders, please!


Mash: I confirm the enemy is completely destroyed! We did it, Senpai!

Martha: –Ha. You're no match for us, lizards. Did those mere wyverns hope to best me and the Tarasque?

Martha: They're just peeping hatchlings, fresh from their eggs.

Mash: !!!

Dr. Roman: Y-Your Holiness?

Fujimaru 1: Lalala, I don't hear anything.

Fujimaru 2: ...

Martha: ...Ahem. Thus return the poor souls who know not of love.

Martha: God's love is equal. Yes, in the past, the Tarasque was treated the same.

Fujimaru 1: Y-Yes.

Fujimaru 2: I'm sure.

Martha: When dragons choose slaughter and refuse to listen, the use of force is the only way♡

Dr. Roman: O-Oh ...Terrible... I mean, total respect, Your Holiness!

Mash: St. Martha may be a saint, but she's also an extremely gifted dragon slayer, isn't she?

Mash: I see that now. Senpai, she'll be a very dependable Servant.

Martha: Oh, you're too kind. I'm just–

Martha: –Just a magnificent dragon slayer♡

Dr. Roman: Huh–? She called herself a dragon slayer?

Fou: Foou, foufou!

The Desired Saint

Martha: ...

Mash: ...

Fou: Fou...

Mash: ...Yes, Fou. But please be quiet for now.

Martha: ...

Fujimaru 1: Martha, is something bothering you?

Fujimaru 2: What's with this atmosphere?

Mash: Yes, Martha's on edge, isn't she? Ever since we came to this era.

Mash: There's something wrong in Ancient Rome, in the Second Singularity. It was her–It was Martha who told us that.

Mash: I assume it's not a good news. Could it be related to the dragons again?

Dr. Roman: If so, then that's odd. Wasn't she all excited about it before?

Fujimaru 1: Maybe it's personal this time?

Mash: But the era she lived in before– was the 1st century, wasn't it?

Fujimaru 2: What could it be?

Mash: I have no idea–

Martha: ...Normally.

Martha: It's normally not possible, because all souls are under God's divine grace.

Martha: Wandering the Earth, not going to either Heaven or Hell.

Martha: Such acts are not allowed, I mean, all of the...

Martha: Original Sins have already...

Mash: Martha?

Dr. Roman: The souls– Oh! I detect a magical energy reaction! A large amount, dead ahead!

Dr. Roman: Based on the signature pattern, ghosts are coming, be careful!

Fujimaru 1: Mash, prepare for battle!

Mash: Yes, Master!

Fujimaru 2: Martha, time for battle!

Martha: ...

Martha: ...Damn.

Mash: Huh?

Dr. Roman: Damn! A saint said damn? Uh, d-did I say something wrong?

Martha: I said it's freaking impossible... And what's with that stupid amount.

Martha: I thought I said all souls, are under the God's divine grace...

Fou: Fou.

Fujimaru 1: Lalala, I can't hear anything.

Fujimaru 2: Martha!

Mash: So I didn't imagine it last time. Something's wrong with Martha–

Dr. Roman: Yes, you're right! You're definitely right! Souls wandering the Earth is normally "not possible!"

Dr. Roman: Sending them back to God's grace, yes. But ghost-type monsters, really?

Dr. Roman: They only exist because of magecraft, they aren't "naturally" generated.

Dr. Roman: In other words, they aren't part of nature. But, hold on, if that's the case then Heroic Spirits–

???: Ohh, oh, ohhhh–

Martha: ...I told you.

Martha: This is freaking impossible. Why do they appear before us, especially–

Martha: ...before me!

Mash: St. Martha's magical energy level is rising! S-Senpai, she's going to unleash her Noble Phantasm!

Dr. Roman: Without the Master's order? S-She's pissed! O-Oh no, Fujimaru!

Dr. Roman: With Kaiju Tarasque on the rampage Rome is done for! Get her under control! T-To battle!

Dr. Roman: Eliminate those ghost as soon as you can! Is that clear?

Fujimaru 1: Mash, prepare for battle!

Mash: Yes, Master!


Mash: Hostiles, destroyed! ...The battle's over, Senpai.

Mash: This should put Martha back to being her usual quiet self...

Martha: ...

Mash: Huh?

Fou: Foou...

Dr. Roman: If she's not back to normal, then, Umm– Right, of course. I've got it, you two!

Dr. Roman: There's still something there. Rather, she's here because she sensed "this."

Dr. Roman: Something much larger than a mere ghost. This is, yes, the sixth imaginary element–

Dr. Roman: Its true nature is unknown, but at the very least, its magical energy indicates is "that".

Mash: ...I sense it, too. Senpai, prepare for battle.

Fou: Fou–

Martha: ...

Dr. Roman: Don't let Martha go out! It's likely she'll unleash the True Name of her Noble Phantasm like before.

Dr. Roman: At any rate, your opponent is–

???: GAAAAAA–!!

Mash: Picking up high level of magical energy! It's definitely a "demon."

Martha: ...Tarasque.

Dr. Roman: Oh, no! Fujimaru, hurry! We have to defeat the enemy and take control of St. Martha!

Fujimaru 1: Mash, prepare for battle!

Mash: Yes, Master! Preparing for battle!

Fujimaru 2: Martha, please take care of this!

Martha: ...Unforgivable. Unforgivable! I'll crush it.

Fou: Fou, fou-foou!!

Mash: Here we go!!


Martha: ...For heaven's sake.

Martha: Haven't we enough trials to face? Just look at this world, isn't it obvious?

Martha: There's no place for anyone who can't see that, may that be men or demons. Back to hell with you!

Martha: No matter what era it is, there's no place for demons.

Martha: ...Because all original sins were carried away by "Him."

Mash: ...Martha...

Dr. Roman: All right, the battle's over. And it looks like St. Martha's calm again. Whew!

Dr. Roman: All's well that ends well. Wow, that was scary...

Fou: Fou, foou!

Dr. Roman: A demon possessing the power equal to a dragon is scary, but, I think I am more afraid of St. Martha actually.

Dr. Roman: Really, I'm really glad she didn't go berserk...

Martha: Pardon? Did I do something?

Martha: Thanks to you, we've driven off the lost souls and the demon. All this too is God's will.

Martha: Yes, in normal circumstances, my existence as a Heroic Spirit is unnatural.

Martha: Even so... As long as I am with you, those who strive to save the world.

Martha: My momentary existence. My shallow resurrection.

Martha: ...I believe all that has a purpose. Thank you. Fujimaru, Mash Kyrielight.

Mash: No, St. Martha, thank you for lending us your assistance.

Fujimaru 1: Yes, thank you.

Fujimaru 2: We'll be counting on you.

Martha: ...Yes.

Dr. Roman: (Huh? Did she skip my name just now?)

Fou: (Fou, foou)
