A Mirror Darkly is the (?) mission of the Yellow Comet Campaign.


Sonja: Sonja vs. Lash... A meeting of minds!


Kanbei: Hm? Where is my foe? What is this? There is no enemy in sight. Sonja, what's the meaning of this?

Sonja: You're right, Father. There's no one here... This is an important piece of the puzzle, though. The enemy must be targeting this area.

Sensei: If they're here, Sonja, show me where they're hiding. If there is no enemy, there can be no battle. We must move ahead to the next battlefield.

Sonja: I suppose you're right, and yet, something seems strange...

Kanbei: I've no time for your stubbornness! Come, Sonja! We must go!

Sonja: Hmmm... Yes, Father. I understand.


Lash: Just as I thought. Not a soul in sight. Does no one in Yellow Comet have a brain? Oh well, I guess I'll just march right in and capture their HQ.

Sonja: Took your time getting here, didn't you?

Lash: Who? Sonja!? You're not supposed to be here! I was told your army had moved on!

Sonja: Sorry to disappoint you. That intel came from me, actually. It was false. It took some doing to get my father and Sensei to agree to this plan, but... I was beginning to wonder if you would take the bait.

Lash: Wait a minute... Are you saying that YOU trapped ME?

Sonja: Surrender. There are rockets on both sides of you, and artillery waits ahead. If you try to get to our HQ, you'll be wiped out.

Lash: I wonder...

Sonja: Huh?

Lash: It's not like you're a combat specialist or anything, right? I really wonder if you can take me.

Sonja: ......

Lash: I have a pretty big army here. If I keep marching, I think I'll take your HQ and win. Don't you agree?

Sonja: Impossible. My calculations are not wrong. Your army will be destroyed before you even touch our HQ.

Lash: I think I can make it. Care to bet on it?

Sonja: If you really want to try, who's going to stop you? Oh, that's right. I am. How's this? If even one of your units gets to our HQ, you win. Let's determine which of us has the better grasp on reality.

Lash: Yay! A game! A game! Tee hee hee!

[After you have defeated all the enemy units:]

Sonja: I think that answers that question.

Lash: Aaaah... I lost. Oh well, I still have plenty of pieces to play with.

Sonja: P-Pieces?! I can't believe you said that! This isn't a game! You're not on some kind of playground!

Lash: Oh, but it IS a game. A wonderfully fun game between you and me! I know you feel the same way. Come on, you can tell me.

Sonja: Don't... Don't be silly... I'm... nothing like you, Lash.

Lash: You're exactly like me. You and I. We're the same. You're always thinking about it, right? Which move will bring victory? You enjoy war like a good game of chess.

Sonja: ......

Lash: We're not different at all, Sonja. You'll feel it someday, the joy that war brings. Wait... You feel it now, don't you? Oh, Sonja! Tee hee hee! Toodles!

Sonja: Wait! Hold it! Am I really... like you? I won't become you, Lash. I can't...
