Okay, so my mom's car was broken into. It is minivan and such. The mall camera had no camera on the parking lot. The person made off with her bag filled with
Bank statments ( with our address ) Her ID card for work ( which has the address of her work on it ). More importantly the Keys to our front door ).
Now unrelated somebody has already broken into her home and went threw her stuff, early this september. In fact, right after labor day. Broke one of the locks.
So now she is going to buy another lock, ( the last one costed like $600. ) and now since a person has a key to her only good lock, she is probably going to spent like 1000+ dolllars on two locks. Seriously.
Imagine this. Somebody can break into your mom's place. Without even breaking in, and it could be anytime.
I'm taking over this topic. To celebrate, let me tell you about Ernst.
Yes, Ernst. The egotistical, manipulative general of Romn who also happens to be the coolest person ever to have graced the Ys fandom. Why? I'll tell you why. He has style, he has flair and he has long black hair. I love Ernst. He is amazing. His clothes are slick, his voice is handsome and his skin is smooth. Simply put, he’s flawless, and he leaves all the women bra-less. It might seem like Adol gets the ladies, but Ernst is playing him, 'cause they actually all have herpes.
For a long time Ernst had no superhuman powers, but because he was tactically unmatched, any obstacles were still effortlessly dispatched. Furthermore, his swordsmanship was and is peerless, and any who lived long enough to face him soon forgot what it means to be fearless. But although Ernst was already the greatest human, he was still bound for greater things. Because he is amazing. Did you know Ernst has three magical pixie servants? They asked him if he wanted to borrow their pixie dust in order to fly, but he simply laughed as he grew his own wings and took to the sky. With the power of Almarion, Ernst, in addition to getting wings, was promptly crowned the king of kings. And he still is the king of kings to this very day. Some weird people wrote a story about some red-haired knave beating him, but Ernst promptly smote them for spreading foul lies. No, really. It's not that Ernst lost and I'm bitter, if you don't believe me just ask Falcom on Twitter.
That's all for now. I might add more as it comes. I just felt the need to enlighten my friends here about how amazing Ernst is. To the poor, misguided naysayers (if there are any) who still refuse to accept the Ernst-ism, I have only one reply: your jealousy is suitable, it only proves his magnificence is irrefutable.
If I recall, the Eldeen relation has something to do with Alma and the old civilization which crafted the keys and the Ark itself. I could be mistaken. Ernst could also be a descendant of the Eldeen, but I don't remember -- it seems like a stretch, though!
I'd thought about that too, which is why I thought that might be a stretch. That doesn't necessarily mean it's impossible, though!
*super random, probably very woonky and very off, thought recollection*
Let me spoiler tag this just so that I don't offend anyone by accidently ruining something for them:
Wasn't it that Geis and Ernst's family (and so, them) were descendants of the humans who worked with the Eldeen? And were the ones who tried to forge the white Emelas? And so, were left crying when Alma sealed away the Ark and their ambitions? (And so, Ernst could create those three homunculi to aid him?)
Here's what the GameFAQs PC guide of the game has to say regarding what Ord tells you. Best to put this in spoiler tags:
"Long long ago, to the seas far far in the west, there lies a land where the winged-gods existed. Our esteemed Alma arrived here from that place. In order to defend the sky and the seas, protect the world, and secure the Ark of Napishtim, our ancestors, loyal to Alma, guarded the Ark. It was also the start of a disaster. There was a faction with no tails who stole from Alma a very important treasure. It was the key, shaped as a black sword, used to secure the Ark. The faction used the Ark and acquired great, God-like power. However, they could not manage to control the key as well as the gods could. The Ark went out of control and threatened to destory the world. Alma, to replace the stolen black key, forged three additional keys. They defeated the man-made monsters and successfully supressed the Ark. Alma, before dying, used her remains to seal the Ark once again.
That long-haired man is the descendant of those who stoled the black key. He is intending to use Alma's powers, passed down through the blood of the priestesses - specifically within Isha, to revive the Ark."
So, it seems that Ernst needs the powers of Alma (one of the Eldeen), which Isha possesses, to try and control the Ark. Ernst says that his soul was scorched by those "white wings", but he has no relation to the Eldeen, apart from being a descendant of those humans that stole the Black Key.
