Synopsis :
Laura claims that she saw Van while cleaning up the remaining monsters. You find illusions of Van in El Soltado. Laura suspects Navas, and confronts her. Navas claims Van's soul in exchange for the information on how to kill Oscuras. Since Oscuras is now dead, Navas can reestablish the order of Abyss.

You tell Vincent everything, and he rushes to Van in El Adio. However, Van does not respond. Vincent summons Navas by sacrificing Dragon Hearts as he once did in Land of the Dead. Navas claims she desires to possess Van, just as Rage wants to possess Vincent. Since the Spear of Orden has perished with Oscuras, there is no way to defeat her.

You consult with Patrick whose arm was partially taken by Abyss. Patrick says the key to free Van is to awaken a strong memory, namely that of Ornella. Van responds slightly to mentions of Ornella. Vincent drags Saint Anis to treat Van with holy water. Navas interrupted, but then relented, agreeing that if Van can break her bondage, she will give up on him. Otherwise, she will take Vincent's soul as well.

Sirius prepares a green pepper meat stew and Anis mixs some tranquilizers for Van. After Vincent reads aloud Ornella's Postcards, Van finally recognizes Vincent. Navas acknowledges that Van is free, and claims that while Abyss is evil, they fulfill promises better than God. Van however tells Vincent to leave. After nullifying the red barrier with Blue Armonium, you help Van confronts Navas. Van has hidden the Spear of Orden in his body, instead of letting it vanish with Oscuras. He also carved the seals of Ornella and Vincent onto the spear.

Navas attempts to retrieve the Spear of Orden, but you help Van to hold her off. Van threatens her with mutual destruction with the Spear of Orden, if she does not return to the world of Abyss. Van knocks everyone out and casts you out beyond the red barrier. You return the next day to find Van, claiming to have wounded Navas who fled back to the world of Abyss. Vincent was once so weak that he was to be banished from Memento Mori. Van refused to give up on him, lying to incur his hatred and make Vincent a hero for killing his treacherous brother. You risk your lives to collect more bloody postcards just so Van can read about Ornella telling him to have a balanced diet.

Van enters the cathedral. Archbishop Vega wants to punish him for killing the previous pope, but Pope Ludio II stops him and reveals his findings. Pope Vasnuela III was a member of Strata Vista, creating Armonium by sacrificing the Saints and stealing them for Vespanola. He also made a deal with Abyss to fabricate all wars that occurred after the 2nd Armonia Holy War. Pope Ludio II wants to put Vega on trial for his involvement, but the latter flees. Pope Ludio II pledges on his earrings to absolve Van's sins on the condition that he aids you henceforth. Van finally makes his peace with Sirius, Laura, Patrick, and Berthe...

Uhhh... So yeah... Bromance. Real legit title? XD

Hello, Ash. I'm currently doing this quest and I would like to point out that in [05. Collect Letters of Van], you actually have to give 20 Armonia Holy Water instead of opening 20 pages of Letters to Van (aka Ornella's Letters) after triggering a quest dialogue in Armonia Cathedral (F3).

In [06. Raid of Navas], both Van and Anis must be alive in order to complete the mission.

That's all for now. If there's anything that I find out, I'll post in the comment section later. Thank you so much for the previous detailed guides.

10. Bromance

12. Everyone's Forgiveness
