Message from the Infinite, Leader of the Salvation

To all faithful, Around us, the earth has faltered. Mankind is launching into space to survive. And so must we, lest we be doomed to this dying planet.

This is a call to the places of gathering. We have obtained technology from the few human sympathizers who aid us in this time of need. With this technology, we can launch before the Earth collapses around us. In this land of hatred and desolation, these brave human souls are a glimmer of hope for the future of mankind.

You must hurry. Our time is limited. To those sisters who can not make it, we must bid a heartfelt farewell. May they take strength in knowing that we leave in search of a way to fulfil the prophecy. The time of redemption will come, and we must be prepared to face our demons in the final battle.
