Sacred Earth History Lesson: Part 3

Angelic Awakening was the game I was working on before the original SEB. It was actually a fairly successful project in the public eyes compared to my past projects. Unfortunately the project's engine was very sloppy and disorganized and that was ultimately my downfall for this project.

A mysterious bug in the field movement system completely ruined the development of Angelic Awakening. It still haunts me to this day as it was a project with a ton of potential and I was actually working full steam on it before that bug completely killed it.


The story of Angelic Awakening took place a couple years after Mystic Legends and Axis Saga. The people of Miltiades, still struggling with the creation of the new world have banded together to form The Miltiades Alliance. A new order consisting of Humans, Beasts, and Eltians working together. Their purpose being to find a new world to inhabit. They turned their sights on Monervera, the world of angels. Monervera is a land abundant with natural resources and ether energy fills the air to a much higher concentration than Miltiades.

The Alliance made the first move, sending forces to strike various checkpoints of the Angel's strongholds as well as assassinating the Arch Seraph. War broke out after this act of aggression. It was a full on war between The Alliance and The Angels.

Which brings us to our present story. Remiel, a human who was adopted by the previous Arch Seraph, is a soldier currently enlisted in the Monerveran Army, much to his dismay. He along with his best friends Eristina and Liore serve in the army and do their best to help out in the war effort. They are soon joined in their journey by the demon, Astell, who came to Monervera to warn the Arch Seraph about the conspiracies of the dark council, the group currently ruling Ixtanel after usurping the ruling power from Lilith, the true heir. Mireille, an angel child who at first was stalking Remiel's group thinking they were enemies, but soon joins after witnessing the movements of the demons, and Clarinei, a whimsical and airheaded general from The Alliance army who decides to abandon her post and join Remiel in order to stop the true threat.

The six of them are removed from the main army by senior soldier, Marauldin, and now from a new secret investigation force for the angelic army codenamed, 'Angelus'. They are then charged with the investigation of several strange matters unrelated to the war with The Alliance. Remiel and his group soon discover that the Dark Council is planning their own strike on Monervera. They then work to stop the demons at every turn.

The worst happens when the group realizes that the true threat isn't from The Alliance or Ixtanel, the true threat was a mere child by the name of Lydalia. A half demon, half angel. This child, seeking vengeance against both the angels and demons for the life she was given stole an ancient artifact from the temple on the Millunia Mountain Shrine, The Creation Material, and used this artifact to strike down the angels, the demons, and the alliance. Lydalia's ultimate plan was to use the power of creation to create a new world, a paradise that she could reside in forever. Free from hatred. pain, and fear. A paradise just for her.

The only one unaffected by Lydalia's attacks was Remiel. It is soon revealed that Remiel was not human, but in fact the god of creation, merely in a dormant state of being. In response to Lydalia's rampant and uncontrolled use of the power of creation, Remiel's dormant soul awakens and he along with his friends move to defeat Lydalia and end this madness once and for all.


Angelic Awakening is the game with the strongest ties to the current series. A good amount of characters are in the current series, and the storyline of AA still has effects in the current series.

Remiel and *Astell are the parents of Veili and Gunnar. Astell is also Melodia's mother. Both are still in the current series.

Liore is still in the current series as well and has already shown up even. Can you guess who he is?~

Mireille is in the current series as well. She's shown up in SEB2 and SEM.

Lydalia is in the current series but hasn't shown up yet.

Eristina is in the current series but hasn't shown up yet.

Razhell and Lilith made their first appearances in AA, and are still in the current series.

The Arch Seraph was actually a character from Axis Saga. Claire. She was the previous Arch Seraph's best friend, and the ruling power carried over to her after she died.

*Astell was previously named Komachi, but it's been changed due to it's out of place nature.


And now for what the game looked like before it fell. I still have this project actually, but working on it is a huge question mark at this point. A huge HUGE question mark. That map movement bug considered. But enjoy these screens.
