History Edit

Freedom Planet Edit

A Befalling Crisis Edit

After the death of the King of Shuigang, the Magister is heard narrating the plot of Freedom Planet. He states that the power of the Kingdom Stone is fading, unable to keep up the growing energy demands. Dail, the Prince of Shuigang, has become poisoned with madness from the death of his father, has sent machines across the land to steal energy from the other Kingdoms. With tensions growing, the Magister fears that war is inevitable.

Theft of the Kingdom Stone Edit

Three days after Lord Brevon's attack on Shuigang, Mayor Zao hires Spade to steal the Kingdom Stone, using a pilgrimage to the Ancient Temple as a cover up. General Gong informs the Magister of this shortly after the theft. With this, the Magister asks Gong about who issued a warning about the theft plot, which were Lilac & Carol. The next day, he tasks Gong to contact Lilac at her Treehouse and ask for her and her friends to meet with him. Gong tells the group that the Magister wants them to act as a neutral party to travel to Shang Mu and negotiate with Zao in returning the Kingdom Stone, since the Magister wishes to resolve this situation peacefully if possible, and a current state of affairs leaves Shuigang out of the picture.

An Audience with the Magister Edit

Lilac and co. arrives at the Royal Palace, informing the Magister that Shuigang now has the Kingdom Stone. Torque tries to explain the existence of Lord Brevon, who wants to steal the Kingdom Stone for his galactic conquest, and presents to him a piece of metal from one of Brevon's machines, asking for one of his scientists to analyze it, as the alloy was not from Avalice. However, Neera Li chimes in, saying that Torque's explanation is nothing more than a scheme made up by Zao, using Lilac and Carol's past lives in the Red Scarves as leverage. Lilac explains that they were no longer part of the Red Scarves, and their past involvement with them was only for their survival. Despite this, the Magister detains the team for further questioning, and puts Torque and his evidence into quarantine.

Traitors to the Law Edit

The group's detainment is short lived, however, as Lilac falsely pleads guilty, saying that she forced Torque to help them, to prove his innocences. The Magister believes her, and allows Torque to be released, but Lilac, along with Carol and Milla, were to remain imprisoned until he says otherwise. Lilac requested that she "say goodbye and apologize to Torque", and the Magister allows it, not knowing of her true motives. Shortly after Lilac and her friends break out of prison, the Magister dispatches Neera and the Bird Officer to recapture them. They were unsuccessful, as Neera is beaten back, with the Bird Officer accidentally freezing her with an Ice Missile later on.

The Magister's Mission Edit

After the events at the Thermal Base, Neera brings a severely injured Lilac before the Magister. Despite being deceived once again, he admits his foolishness for believing Neera's theory about Lilac's situation. He says the fragment was examined, but because Lilac has lied to him, he offers her a mission, stating that if she accepts, he'll restore her to full strength, if she succeeds, he'll restore her honor. After Lilac's injuries were healed, Neera explains to her that the fragment was crafted from a rare mineral, found in a nearby Lagoon, which was abandoned due to fear of radioactivity. The Magister believes that location holds the answers to why the invaders know of Avalice, and more importantly: how to defeat them. Following the explanation, he sends Lilac to investigate the mysterious Lagoon.

The Truth Revealed Edit

Later, Lilac returns with Pangu, a Robotic AI that looks similar to Brevon's AI, Syntax. It plays a recorded message from a Scientist, who explains the origins of the Kingdom Stone and the Ancient Dragons of the Before Time. Upon seeing this message, the Magister realizes the Kingdom Stone is more important to their future, that it must be returned to it's resting place before it's energy is lost forever. He then informs Lilac that Mayor Zao has sent his forces to attack Shuigang, despite their innocence. General Gong and his forces have already been sent to try and hold them off, but fears it won't be for long. Despite the irony, the Magister sends Lilac to the snowfields stop the war before it begins, stating that she's the only "Dragonblood" worthy of his trust.

A New Beginning Edit

At the end of the game, following Brevon's defeat, the Magister witnesses the Kingdom Stone's transformation into a crystalline vortex, realizing that civil war has been averted, and that a new opportunity has fallen to the Avalicians. He is also concerned that Lord Brevon, the monster who threw their world into chaos, is nowhere to be found. Although their is still work to be done, the Magister is relieved that he and his people can rest easy, knowing that the bravery and sacrifice of a select few have given their world another chance.

  • During a blooper, the Magister says that he will establish a Timtams Currency Exchange Program. This refers to an Australian chocolate bar brand, which is also the favorite chocolate of the Magister's voice actor, Edwyn Tiong.
