Parumu no ki


I go to the darkness of the white forest's spring

To rid myself of memories

Many bitter fruits of the silverberry

And the sad fruit of the kusupia

In the garden full of black flowers

As my tears flow

It is these I must eat

A Tree of Palme

There she is!

What happened? Where did she go?


Hey, come on!

Did you see her?! She's a fiend!

She's been up to The Roof... to Touto and back.

To think this Sol Tribe warrior was a woman...

It's Palme, I'll bet...

He's woken up?

How many years has he been silent?

I'm an old man now...

so obsessed with a sap that doesn't exist...

I've lost track of time.

A niger triggerfish!

He's after it again!

Baron! There's going to be lightning!

No, Xian!

That's not crosskahla!

It's a stone! It's just a stone!

Snap out of it, Xian!


No, Palme!

Silent once again...

You're made from kooloop wood.

Without your oil, you'll put down roots

just standing in the sun...

like the trees out back.

I have no problem with you

turning back into a tree,

but since I can't erase your memory...

I'm not certain what effect that would have.

The kooloop tree thrives on the

particles of memory it draws up

from the remains of ancient

civilizations buried in the soil.

What kind of grotesque monster

would you become?



I found it! Look, I found it!

A crow-snake egg...?

Wow, a crow-snake egg... where did you find it?

At the Pointed Rocks, just like you said!

Let's go there again when you get better.

It was very strange...

Look! I brought you kusupia flowers

and berries! Bunches of them!!

It was very strange...

Look! I brought you kusupia flowers

and berries! Bunches of them!!

When you were feeling blue,

Palme was out picking flowers,

making your meals, and running

around full of energy.

Wasn't he, Xian?






But the moment you died,

he just stopped functioning.


Here we go again...

Xian... Xian...



Is that an egg, Xian?

Palme's talking!

What kind of an egg? I'll take good care of it.

Wh-who are you? What are

you doing in my house?

Koram. From Tamas.

Tamas? You're from Below?!

Wh-What are you doing here?!

I want the Egg of Touto delivered to Tamas.

Take this sap. It will keep the egg alive.

Don't talk nonsense! To go Below...


The light of crosskahla?!

It's her!

Th-This is...


What? Crosskahla?! I don't believe it!

Xian... Xian spent her life searching for that sap!


It makes the same sound as the

pendant you made to imitate it.

Let's go to the Pointed Rocks.


Where did you get this? Does it

still exist down Below?

In that condition, where could she have gone?

"The Egg of Touto"...

"The Egg of the Roof?" What could that mean?

Keep it down, will you? My boy's asleep.

Move, old man!

You old drunk!

Wake up, boy! C'mon!

What the hell?

It's a puppet!

Palme! My dear Palme!

This guy's giving me the creeps.

Palme! My dear Palme!

This guy's giving me the creeps.

A Sol Tribe bag!

It was caught on the cliffs out back.

Where's the egg?

Gone, of course.

Where's the egg?
