Amazing Design. Amazing Colors. :omfg:
This is really good, I like how all the colors are tinted by the aer tinged water, but I can't help but think that this picture can't be canon. Yuri fell from well over a mile up, if he had landed in the water he would have gone 'SPLAT'. In my mind, Duke saved him while he was falling.

Actually, if he fell in just the right way, he would have survived even from that height. Granted, he probably would have had quite a few broken bones, but he would have survived.

If you think about it, when he woke up in his room, he was very much injured, and almost barely able to move. Estelle would have healed all his major wounds, including broken bones.

But you have a point. When he wakes up, he's not A) sick from being wet and B) wet at all. (thought it is not specified how long he was missing.)

If it were me, I would think that Duke went after the sword first because it probably fell just a bit faster than Yuri did, and then used the sword to control the aer just enough to slow his decent. Then again, I think waaaay to into things. XD

Makes sense, but from the reaction of the others I'd say he was missing for quite some time - if I remember correctly (I've only finished my first playthrough and am still printing guides for the second XD), Flynn set out and searched for him a few times. That might have taken a few, but at least one month (or at the very least a week) and until then he shouldn't be wet anymore. Plus, if he didn't get too cold while being wet, he shouldn't have gotten sick. He probably didn't eat though, so a) Duke fed him or at least gave him to drink while he was asleep, as a motive we could assume that he reminded him of himself (like Khroma? or someone else said) or b) Flynn has high-speed boats and ultrasound to search the bottom of the ocean or c) we have a time paradox OR d) there's something we've been missing.

There's always something we miss. I mean...

Think about it.

A)Ioder Dein Nomos can only be wielded by a member of the royal family, who is meant to be emperor or empress. So far, Dein Nomos has had two wielders: Duke and Yuri. With this implication, this means that both Yuri and Duke have some sort of royal blood.

B) Flynn lived in the castle. Rather close to Estelle's room, implying that they knew each other. Also, in First Strike, Flynn is seen talking to Estelle.

C) Raven knew Yuri from the events of First Strike. Yet he never says so, barely even hints on it.

D) Rita should have recognized Yuri's Blastia.

E) How does Repede get his scar?

F) It is implied that Yuri is a complete orphan that somehow came to live with Flynn when they were younger. Just how did they meet?

I could go on XD

I have yet to watch the first strike, I've ordered the DVD but it won't be delivered before Christmas unless some sort of Miracle happens T-T (Same for my book to learn languages and Tales of Eternia, for which I got a PSP. If I manage to combine these two, I could play tons of Japanese PSP Tales of games! ...if it only were that easy OTL)

a) I gotta pay attention to this one on my second playthrough, to be honest, I kind of assumed that it was more of a royal possession, than something that reacted towards royal blood. 

as for the others, like I said, unless miracle gel can actually perform miracles, I'll have to wait for my UK-imported DVD to arrive T-T (After all, it wouldn't make much sense to play the game in English but watch the movie in German, right?)

For Dein Nomos, it's merely implied, but Ioder does make the comment "Perhaps that sword was waiting for you to wield it." (or something along those lines)

I'm working on learning.....mainly because I want Radient Mythology 2 and 3.....BECAUSE THE VESPERIA  CAST IS IN IT >.<

I'm getting the DVD/Blu-Ray version as well as a ToV wall scroll~

Oh dammit, I'm so sorry for writing so late ;A; 
And unfortunately, that thing called "time" took away quite a lot of my memories of the game... And I can't play it again right now because my room needs to get painted first and that might take a while >_>

And I keep forgetting to call the book store that should have a book in March :V

wall scroll? Sounds fancy! X3 Though to be honest, on my wall there's just no room left >_>

Why not just watch it on the computer? That's what I had to do....since I don't even own an x-box360

There's barely room left on mine...I'm hoping when we move again, I'll get the bigger room so that I can put more stuff on my wall.
