Sage's Crystal

sage_s_crystal.jpg

The Sage's Crystal is a protective seal created by magically fusing Langrisser to Alhazard. It can only be created by a Maiden of Light and Maiden of Darkness working together, unlike the much weaker seal placed on the swords by Sophia at the climax of Langrisser III.

As energy can be neither created nor destroyed, the vast power used to create the crystal becomes contained in the crystal itself. This makes the Sage's Crystal an attractive possession for aspiring wizards.

Story

At the end of Langrisser II, Liana and Lána create a Sage's Crystal from the two swords and throw it into the heavens.

Their crystal remains protected in the heavens for 170 years until Gendrasil steals it. On his descent into the mortal plane, he loses the crystal somewhere near Recrio village, where it is discovered and guarded by Crimzo Landers, the earthbound Crimzonians.

Fifteen years before the events of Langrisser IV, Aizel, a high-ranking Crimzonian, destroys a dam upstream from Recrio in an attempt to wipe out the Crimzo Landers. During the ensuing flood, it is carried away together with Landius and his mother. The dying woman entrusts her son and the crystal to Brenda, who passes on the responsibility to the elder of Gotahl, a small village located further downstream.

At the outset of Langrisser IV, Gizlof gains control of Gotahl and levies new taxes to make the villagers rebel so he can kill them and claim the Sage's Crystal. After taking the crystal from the village church, he also kidnaps Landius and Ricky's sister Rachel, whom he recognizes as possessing vast latent magical ability.

Throughout the war between the Regenburg Federation and Kingdom of Caconsis, Gizlof continues to experiment with the crystal in hopes of separating it into swords. His efforts ultimately fail, and the crystal is recovered and separated by Böser.
