I. Introduction
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     Welcome Fire Emblem fans, and thank you for stopping by! I doubt many of 
you will know me, but that's all right. This FAQ is my first one, after all. 
But I won't go into such unnecessary details; obviously, you did not come to 
hear me ramble.

     I assume you are here due to interest in the game Fire Emblem: Path of 
Radiance. Either that or you're bored beyond belief and decided to click on 
random FAQs. We'll assume the former though. This FAQ is geared towards a 
nifty gimmick the Fire Emblem series has coined. They're called support 
conversations.

     Although most of you probably know what support conversations are, I'll 
give a bit of background on what they are for the new players. Support 
conversations are a series of discussions certain characters can have with 
each other. It enhances character development and is quite interesting 
stuff... most of the time, anyway. Another nifty feature is that if the 
characters with supports are within three squares of each other, they raise 
each other's stats! This can be amazingly useful in battle.

     In the other two Fire Emblem games released in America, you were forced 
to sit two units side by side on the field for a certain amount of turns 
before they'd chat. This game has changed the procedure used though. Instead, 
it counts how many battles units have been in together. Once you have the 
correct amount, you can have the units speak to each other in the base. (The 
base is available by chapter eight.)

     You have to be careful with which people you pick to support with others 
though. Each character can only have five conversations. When you first talk 
with a character, they have a C support. The second time is a B. The third, 
A, and that's the best you can get. With only five conversations, your 
maximum potential is an A and a B on one character.

     Not all characters can support each other, mind you. Some have a lot of 
supports, while others have hardly any. Ike is the king of supports, having 
the potential of seven different people. Volke sits at the bottom of the list 
with a grand total of one. You will also acquire two units that will not get 
supports, but it should be fairly obvious who they are. I have neglected to 
even include their names on the list due to that.

     If you came here looking for statistics or how many battles are needed 
for supports, I wish to point you to the other support FAQ available. I am 
terrible at such things and will not be discussing those here.

     Then what is this FAQ for, you ask? Well, the other two Fire Emblem 
games had this cool feature that let you see any support conversations you 
had gotten. It also let you try to get one hundred percent for bragging 
rights. The catch? For a reason so brilliant I cannot even try to 
comprehend it, they took that option out for this game. You can assume how 
enthusiastic I was to realize this.

     Without a way to look back at conversations, I decided to write them all 
up. So why not share the wealth? For those who want to see the conversations 
again, or are simply too lazy to use certain characters to learn about them, 
they may read the supports here! They are copied word for word here, except 
for a few typos the game made that I felt fit to correct. 

     Be warned that you might find spoilers if you read on! If you want to 
find out about a character for yourself, I highly advise not looking at any 
of these until you have done so. It might be a good idea to complete the game 
before looking at these too, or else you'll be spoiled on what units you get. 
If you don't care about that kind of thing, then that's perfectly fine. I'm 
just noting this for the ones picky about such matters.

     Know that this FAQ is not done yet. If a conversation you want is not 
available, please be patient. I will try to get it up quickly.

     Anyway, I've wasted enough of your time. Go ahead and read the 
conversations; that's what this FAQ is for!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
II. Version History
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Version 0.28-11/5/05: First version of the FAQ. So far, it is pretty much a 
random scattering of many C Supports, some B Supports, and a handful of A 
Supports. 59 out of 204 of the C, B, or A conversations were taken in all. As 
I am replaying the game a second time, I will be taking measures to ensure I 
get several new supports this playthrough.

Version 0.46-12/7/05: There was a delay in updating because I wanted to finish 
the game to get all the supports possible on that file. I got to chapter 27 a 
long time ago, but was forced to halt due to school work. I just finished 
getting the supports today. The supports people have collected for me are not 
in this version due to my e-mail being weird. If it is up again next time, 
they will be included and given credit for. Now there are 96 done, almost half 
the amount necessary.

Version 0.65-9/11/06: Moving, having a busy summer, and having email troubles 
all contributed to this very late update. I am very regretful for how long it 
took and hope it can be forgiven. I was going to wait even longer, until I 
could uncover all of the emails, but decided to cover that next time and 
finally get this up. What is added are the ones I got from my third 
playthrough.

Version 0.84-8/19/07: Can you believe my luck? Not only did I have a faulty 
email, but my disc glitched up! I literally could not play anymore. Recently, 
however, I have uncovered some old emails that had FAQ additions, so I added 
those. If anyone else can fill in the blank spaces, please, send them in! This 
is very close to being done!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
III. Support Hotkeys
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     This is a long FAQ, and scrolling through all of these conversations to 
find a specific one you desire would not be fun. So I gave each conversation a 
hotkey of sorts. Press CTRL and F to bring up a search window, and then type 
in the specific word and number combination to find the one you want. 
Hopefully, this will make your life easier.

     If you search twice, note that you will indeed find the conversation a 
second time. There is a section for each character, and it will have all the 
supports that character can get in each. If you look for Ike and Titania, 
you'll find their conversation under both Ike and Titania's sections, for 
instance. So if you are interested in one particular character, search for the 
first support they have and just keep reading.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ike/Titania (IT001)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-C Support-

Titania: Hey, Ike. Training?
Ike: Yeah. You too, huh? Hey, do you want to spar? I learn a lot when we team 
up.
Titania: Really? I'm glad to hear that. I thought you no longer needed my 
lessons.
Ike: What are you talking about? You're the one who put the finishing touches 
on what swordsmanship I inherited from my father.
Titania: Hmm. I'm honored to hear you say so.
Ike: I mean it.
Titania: But the talent you inherited from your father is one of a kind. I 
want you to cherish it.
Ike: Huh... Hey, Titania? When did you meet my father? You used to be a 
Crimean knight, right?
Titania: That's right... But it's a long story, and we need to train! Get 
ready! Focus!
Ike: Fine...

-B Support-

Ike: Do you have a moment, Titania?
Titania: Ike! How can I help you?
Ike: Remember what we talked about the other day? About when you met my father?
Titania: Um... Yeah... That...
Ike: I know you don't want to talk about it, so I won't force you or anything.
Titania: It's not like I don't want to. It's just... It's hard to talk about 
my past. Still... You deserve to know as much about your father as possible... 
All right, I'll tell you.
Ike: Great!
Titania: When I was a Crimean knight, I entered an officer exchange program 
and was sent to Gallia. Where your father was. On my first day, they held a 
joint training session in the royal hall. That's where I saw Commander Greil's 
might for the first time. He took on wave after wave of knights and defeated 
them like they were children. His swordsmanship was brilliant... The other 
knights barely had time to lift their weapons before Commander Greil had them 
on the ground. He was the mightiest warrior I had ever seen. My body... 
trembled at the thought of it.
Ike: Whoa.
Titania: I tried to cross swords with him, but he was so far out of my 
league... Ha! It was laughable! But I asked him to train me, and he agreed. 
After that, whenever we had a spare hour, we would meet and spar. We soon grew 
close, and after a few weeks, he invited me to his home. That's when I saw you.
Ike: Me?
Titania: Yes. You were sleeping in your mother's arms, and she was smiling. 
You were adorable. The Commander looked at you with such kind eyes... I saw a 
different person than the man who wielded a sword.
Ike: I see.

-A Support-

Ike: Titania? I wish to thank you.
Titania: W-what? What's with all the formality?
Ike: There's no guarantee that any of us will see tomorrow, and I want to tell 
you this while it's still in my head. Will you listen?
Titania: Um... All right, but... what's with you? And what have I done to 
deserve your thanks?
Ike: You have done much. You helped my father build this company. He had lost 
his wife and had two young children to care for... I wish to thank you for 
that.
Titania: ...Oh, Ike...
Ike: I've taken everything in my life for granted, and it was all possible 
because of you. My thanks is far too late in coming.
Titania: It's not necessary, Ike. What I did, I did because--
Ike: You loved him. Didn't you?
Titania: ...!!! ...Um...
Ike: Perhaps I'm wrong. Regardless... I stand here alive today because of you. 
And I still want to thank you for it. Had you not lent a helping hand, I would 
most likely be dead. And my father's life cut short as well. You helped to 
keep him alive until the Black Knight brought him down... You made his final 
years happy. Thank you.
Titania: Oh, Ike... ...I don't... ...Sniff... ...Sniff... ...Sniff...
Ike: Unlike my father, I lack both experience and strength, but... I'm 
learning. Please, keep aiding and supporting me. Please...
Titania: ...Sniff... Of course... Of course I will, Ike.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ike/Oscar (IO002)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-C Support-

Ike: Hey, Oscar, can you spar with me for a sec... Wait! Where are you going?
Oscar: Sorry, Ike! No time! I have to prepare the evening meal today.
Ike: You? Where's Mist?
Oscar: She's off practicing with her staff. It's been a while since I cooked. 
I hope I haven't lost my touch.
Ike: I haven't had one of your suppers in ages! I'm looking forward to it.
Oscar: Really?
Ike: Yeah, of course! You're a great cook! Why do you ask?
Oscar: Well... I never knew that. Mist, Shinon, and Rhys were the only ones 
who ever commented on the subtle spices and flavors that I use... I mean, my 
brothers are used to my cooking, and Soren hates everything. I think he'd stop 
eating if he could... Sure, Commander Greil, Titania, Gatrie, and you ate 
everything on the plate. But... I feel like you'd eat anything.
Ike: Oscar, I didn't just shovel the food into my mouth. I enjoyed it! I 
really did! Remember the first day that Mist took over your cooking duties? 
Just thinking about it makes me ill... Heh! Even my father was having trouble 
choking it down! But I think Mist is finally starting to get the hang of it.
Oscar: Just like you're training to improve your swordsmanship, Mist is 
training to improve her culinary skills. You should give her more support. 
Hearing someone say "Delicious!" is the best encouragement a cook can get.
Ike: I see... Then I'll make sure to say "Delicious!" from now on.
Oscar: Ha ha! Thanks.

-B Support-

Oscar: How's it going, Ike?
Ike: Oh, hey, Oscar, I'm fine... Actually, I'm kind of worried about something.
Oscar: Can I help?
Ike: Well, I was trying to figure out how we should fight the laguz bird 
tribes.
Oscar: That's odd... I was just thinking about the same thing. When they turn 
into their true selves, we are forced into a kind of battle that is difficult 
for us.
Ike: You're right about that. The laguz are so strong. I've even seen them 
shatter boulders with a single blow. I feel like our weak points are as visible 
as a lit torch for the bird tribes. What's more, my sword is useless if they 
take to the sky...
Oscar: My advice is to keep engaging them. The more we fight, the more we 
learn. Of course, it won't be easy.
Ike: No, but I'm sure we can do it. That's a good idea! Thanks.
Oscar: Ah... Well... sure. You're pretty amazing, Ike. You know that?
Ike: Hey, come on now. You're the guy with all the experience and talent.
Oscar: Everything I have accomplished comes from hard work and practice. 
You're the son of Commander Greil. You have... natural talent. I'd follow you 
anywhere.
Ike: Uh... wow. Thanks, Oscar...

-A Support-

Oscar: Ike.
Ike: Oscar? What is it?
Oscar: ...Are you well, Ike?
Ike: Yeah... yeah, I'm fine. Why? Did I worry you?
Oscar: No, no. It's nothing that you did. It's just that... our battles are 
intensifying. I never imagined that we'd be involved in clashes of this 
magnitude.
Ike: You're right. Ever since my father died, it's been one kind of chaos 
after another. It's a real challenge.
Oscar: So... How are you doing? Well, I mean... are you as well as can be 
expected? Is there anything I can do?
Ike: Ah, Oscar. I give you enough grief as is. Just stick with your helplessly 
green commander. That's all I ask.
Oscar: Ike...
Ike: Will you continue to believe in me?
Oscar: Yes, of course! As Commander Greil said, we are family. This is my 
home. I will support you to the end.
Ike: Listen... I have an urge for your cooking. Think you can give Mist a hand 
tonight?
Oscar: Ha! You don't have to ask me twice! I'll put all of my culinary skills 
to work. I hope you're hungry!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ike/Soren (IS003)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-C Support-

Soren: So that's how much we spent... Supplies are running low. We need dried 
meat, fresh fruit... Ike? Are you listening?
Ike: Huh? Oh, sorry. I wasn't paying attention.
Soren: I would have never guessed.
Ike: Sorry, Soren. Look, could you run the report by me again?
Soren: You're tired, Ike. You need rest. Go find a cot somewhere.
Ike: You can tell?
Soren: Of course. When you're not feeling well, your left eye twitches.
Ike: That's... odd. I never noticed.
Soren: Get some sleep. I can manage things for a few hours.
Ike: Well, I am pretty beat...
Soren: Go.
Ike: You know, Soren? You're not nearly as insensitive as the others say. 
Deep down, you're a big softie.
Soren: Excuse me?
Ike: Oh, nothing. I'm going.
Soren: Mmm. Don't let the bedbugs bite.

-B Support-

Soren: ...
Ike: Do you have a second, Soren?
Soren: What is it, Ike?
Ike: What's wrong? You've been quiet and moody for days. What's going on?
Soren: Um... Well, it's...
Ike: Yes?
Soren: ...It's nothing. ... ...You've never worried about who you are, have 
you? Your family? Where you came from?
Ike: Who I am...? Well, not really. No. I guess I don't understand what 
you're getting at. I had a father and a mother. I don't remember much about 
her, but otherwise, no complaints.
Soren: It must be... nice to have loving parents. You need people to 
experience your childhood. To help shape the person you will become. Without 
an adult around to affirm and support them, a child can't know which path to 
take. Or who he really is.
Ike: Don't you have any memory of your parents?
Soren: No. The woman who raised me was not my birth mother. And she wasn't all 
that fond of me, anyway... My earliest memories are of her saying, "Why me? 
The world isn't fair!" or "Stay away from me, child!" No love. No affection. 
She took care of me out of some sense of duty that she didn't really possess. 
Ike: ...
Soren: When I was about four, a nearby sage came by and asked to take me in. 
He said I possessed rare magical talent. I remember the day clearly. My 
caretaker was delighted to give me up. In fact, she seemed almost delirious 
with pleasure. Smiling like a madwoman as she handed me over... The sage even 
gave her gold as compensation. Not that it was necessary.
Ike: Oh, Soren... I had no idea.
Soren: The sage was old, and knew that death would soon come for him. His only 
goal was to teach his art to an apprentice. As time was short, he put me 
through terribly rigorous magic training. We worked day and night, without 
cease. I didn't even have time to think about who I really was. But it was 
still a better life than I had ever known. When the sage died two years later, 
I had acquired much magical skill. Perhaps too much for a child of my age... 
At any rate, once I had eaten all of the food in the sage's hovel, I left and 
walked for days to find help. Upon reaching civilization, I came to another 
grim realization... I couldn't speak. Not a word.
Ike: Soren...
Soren: Oh, I could read and write better than most of the villagers. And I 
could understand what they said. I just couldn't talk. I couldn't help it. The 
woman and the sage both used to hurl words at me. Unkind words, usually. But I 
never needed to answer, so--
Ike: Soren!
Soren: Huh? Oh... I apologize, Ike. I should not have made you listen to such 
nonsense...
Ike: Soren, it's no nonsense! It's awful! It's the most terrible thing I've 
ever heard! Where did this happen? Was it in Begnion?
Soren: No... But, there's more. I haven't told you... About my parents... No, 
that's enough. I'm sorry. Excuse me... 
Ike: Wait, Soren? Soren! Blast!

-A Support-

Ike: Hey, Soren.
Soren: ...
Ike: I've been thinking a lot about what you said the other day, and there's 
something I still don't understand. You survived. You're strong. Why would 
you feel insecure about who you are? Tell me. Tell me everything.
Soren: Curse you! Why can't you leave me be?! I don't have any friends, Ike! 
I don't have anyone else! If I tell you and you turn on me... I... I... I 
don't think I can survive it.
Ike: That's why you have to tell me, Soren. You'll never tell anyone else. 
And if you don't tell anyone, you're just going to keep suffering. Look at 
you! You're a mess! Come on. Talk to me.
Soren: Ike... I... I...
Ike: Soren, it's me! Trust me. I don't give two figs who your parents are! 
I'll stand by you.
Soren: Ike, I... sniff... No, I won't... sniff... Ah, Ike... ...I'm... 
Branded. I'm one of the Branded.
Ike: A Branded? What's that?
Soren: It's a cross between a beorc and a laguz. Such a taboo violates 
every teaching of the goddess. And of society. We are untouchables. 
Abominations. Condemned to a life of hatred and shunning from both races.
Ike: Wait, wait. Hold it a second. Let me make sure that I follow you... 
You're part laguz?
Soren: Yeah. This mark on my forehead is the proof. I learned about it 
while researching ancient books at the Mainal Cathedral. I always thought it 
was a birthmark. Others thought that it was the mark of a Spirit Charmer.
Ike: What's a Spirit Charmer?
Soren: Magic comes from interaction with spirits. If you let one into your 
body, it will give you tremendous power... for a price. That's why the old 
sage was so interested in me. He thought I had struck such a deal. But 
instead, I was just a filthy Branded.
Ike: All right. I understand. So?
Soren: ...What do you mean, "so?"
Ike: So, you have laguz blood in your veins. So, you have a mark to prove it. 
So... What's the problem?
Soren: What's the problem...? Don't you find me repugnant!? I work beside you, 
eat beside you. I'm nothing! I don't belong anywhere! Doesn't that sicken you?
Ike: No. It doesn't change anything. You're still you, Soren! You're a capable 
officer of our army. And my friend. We can't keep going unless you are with 
us.
Soren: ...Ike... I thought... I thought you...
Ike: What?
Soren: It was Gallia. The sage lived in Gallia. A few beorcs had settled there 
and...
Ike: Gallia? Are you saying...
Soren: When the sage died, no one would help me. I couldn't speak. Couldn't 
find food. I was dying. You were the only one who helped. You and your father. 
That's why you're my friend. My... only friend.

Ike/Lethe (IL004)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-C Support-

Ike: Hiyaaaa! Haaaaaa! Hm? Who's there?
Lethe: Training hard?
Ike: Lethe. Were you watching me?
Lethe: Yep. I'm curious... Our future success will depend in large part on how 
well you humans fight. We laguz can't afford to lag behind.
Ike: You always need the upper hand, eh, Lethe?
Lethe: Relax. It's not like I'm going to claw you in the back during a battle. 
There's no point in it. Besides, you humans are the only ones who use dirty 
tricks like that.
Ike: Oh, I see. So every laguz fights fair and square?
Lethe: Most of us. Not all. Although we know when a laguz is about to use a 
cheap trick. We can smell it. I can sniff out a trap from a mile away. Even in 
the dark. You can hide from my eyes, but not my nose.
Ike: Lethe? Will you teach me how to fight like a laguz?
Lethe: Sure, I'll take you on. But it's going to hurt! When I fight, it's with 
my claws out.
Ike: Good. I look forward to it.

-B Support-

Lethe: Hey.
Ike: Lethe. What's up?
Lethe: You fought pretty well the other day. Better than I expected.
Ike: What? Me?
Lethe: You see anyone else?
Ike: No, but... I didn't expect that from you. You laguz have such awesome 
natural power, I figure beorc look weak in comparison.
Lethe: Totally different styles of fighting. You don't have the reactions or 
control that we do, but you're actually kind of graceful. It must be tough to 
use a weapon that's not actually connected to your body. No wonder you train 
so much.
Ike: Without teeth or claws, we need our weapons to move like they're a part 
of us. So, yeah, that takes a lot of work.
Lethe: Mmm... I see. I may have to train some more. Which reminds me... Do you 
remember our bargain?
Ike: Of course! Will you do it?
Lethe: I should ask you. Laguz training is hard. You're going to hurt. And 
bleed. Are you ready?
Ike: Let's do it!

Lethe: Hello, Ike.
Ike: Hey, Lethe! You ready to punish me some more?
Lethe: You're taking to my training with remarkable skill. I need to keep up.
Ike: You think so? Wow. A compliment from Lethe... Now that's a big deal!
Lethe: What's that supposed to mean? You're not still holding a grudge about 
our first meeting, are you?
Ike: No, nothing like that. It's just... Your powerful, you know? If you 
compliment me, that means something.
Lethe: Bah! You give me too much credit. ...Um... Say, Ike?
Ike: What?
Lethe: When this war is over, you should... Why don't you come to Gallia? I 
mean, not like I care, but--
Ike: Gallia?
Lethe: Right! Well, you could learn even more if you trained in Gallia. It's 
hard living for a beorc. But if you can handle it, you could take the 
swordsmanship that runs in your blood to another level.
Ike: Only if you're my sparring partner!
Lethe: Meh... Well, if that's what you want... I guess I'd be all right with 
that.
Ike: Then life in Gallia may not be so bad.
Lethe: Oh? Well, good. It's settled then. Come see us whenever you're ready. I 
might even... look forward to it.
Ike: You have my word.

Reyson: Oh, Ike. What can I do for you?
Ike: I just came to see how things are going. How are you doing?
Reyson: Fine. No problems.
Ike: No problems? Your face tells me otherwise.
Reyson: Well... we herons are optimistic by nature. So it's hard for me to be 
on a battlefield where the air is thick with negative energy. It's... tiring. 
But I'm learning to adjust. I hope you'll let me fight beside you to the 
bitter end.
Ike: As long as you take care of yourself, I have no complaints. But isn't 
there anything I can do to help? Maybe we could have a special supper. 
Certain foods tend to restore energy.
Reyson: That's very kind, but my diet... Heh. It's fairly limited. You know, 
I used to be disgusted by my thin, frail body. So one time I performed a 
little experiment. I got all the goods that Tibarn likes--raw meat, cold 
fish, insects--and ate them. I ate them all.
Ike: That doesn't sound good. What happened?
Reyson: I stared death in the face for ten days. You've never seen a laguz so 
green! I guess we herons are just meant to eat fruits and nuts for our entire 
lives.
Ike: ...I can't imagine. Raw meat? You must have been desperate!
Reyson: I wanted so much to be like Tibarn. Big body, strong wings... With 
those features, I felt I could march into Begnion and revenge my brothers all 
by myself. I got on my knees and prayed to the goddess every night. Asking 
her for power... But to no avail.
Ike: I think I know how you feel... But it's better this way.
Reyson: How do you figure?
Ike: You get sick from negative energy. Imagine if you tried to hurt someone! 
You'd lose your lunch!
Reyson: Heh. I guess you're right... At one time, I was so angry about my 
lack of strength, so consumed by despair, that I considered forfeiting my 
life... But... I'm glad that I am alive. I got to see Leanne because I am 
alive.

Reyson: Well... I found that negative energy isn't so bad when I fly. Even 
feeling a breeze can be a huge help. I can hold up. Don't worry about me.
Ike: You look tired. Exhausted, even. I think I know how King Phoenicis must 
feel... I'm sorry for pushing you like this.
Reyson: Saying so is an insult. I choose to be here.
Ike: Look, that's not what I meant... I apologize. I know that you hate 
having people fuss over you. It's just--
Reyson: Ike? Be quiet. If you were annoying else, I'd punch you in the nose 
and make you be quiet.
Ike: Whoa, easy, Reyson! That's not necessary! And hey... I didn't think that 
herons could attack.
Reyson: ...I know how to punch! Although...
Ike: Yes?
Reyson: I suffer more damage than my target.
Ike: What?!
Reyson: When I bashed Duke Tanas's face, he only suffered a bloody nose, but 
it cracked the bones in the back of my hand.

is over!
Reyson: My body should return to normal once the medallion settles down... 
Donít worry. My will is still strong. I have to confront Ashnard. I have to 
discover the truth.
Ike: Iíll help you with that, Reyson.
Reyson: I told you not to treat me specó
Ike: And I need you to help me, too.

Ike: I haven't had a chance to train today. I try to swing a sword every day,

Plus it's good practice. Haaaa! Kyaaaaa!
Ranulf: I see. So your strength doesn't just come from your bloodline. It's 
also a result of your persistence. No wonder you grow more powerful every

Ike: Haaaaa! And one and... Hiyaaaa!
Ranulf: Oh, sorry. I'm interrupting you. I'll see you la--
Ike: Wait. What do you want? I assume you came out here to tell me something.
Ranulf: Not really. I'm just being a mother cat... No matter how many times 
we tell you to take it easy, you're always working. I thought you might take 
a break if I came over and talked to you, but... I can see that you're still 
crazy. I'll go now.
Ike: You think I'm crazy? How so?
Ranulf: Well... a little crazy, yeah! I've never worked for a leader who's 
as blunt and straightforward as you. It's pretty shocking to have a commander 
who doesn't care what anyone thinks, no matter how powerful they are.
Ike: Well, that's just my style. I don't have to be like someone else, do I?
Ranulf: Why are you so confident? I don't get it. Normal beorc just do what 
people tell them and try not to make a fuss. But not you. I heard you even 
yelled at the apostle!
Ike: Yeah, that wasn't my brightest moment.
Ranulf: Then again, worrying about a beorc like this is definitely not normal 
laguz behavior. I 
guess I'm a fish out of water myself... Wait, did I just call myself a fish?
Ike: Wha--? Ha ha! You're a cat, remember!? I thought you ate fish! Ha ha ha!
Ranulf: Hey! I made you laugh! That's good. That's a good first step.

Ike: Thatís a good attitude.
Ranulf: Um... that was a joke, Ike. I hate training. Besides, training on 
two legs would be pretty useless for a laguz like me.
Ike: So what were you doing? It looked like stretching. 
Ranulf: Just stretching. You know, to unwind?
Ike: Hm. I was hoping that it was a kind of special laguz technique that I 
didnít know about. 
Ranulf: Sorry to disappoint you, but you and I arenít that different unless 
I change forms. As you can see.

Ranulf: On the contrary! Thereís a little trick we have...

Ranulf: Well, we take... Hey! Youíre smooth, arenít you? I almost fell for

 I canít just run around telling any old beorc that I know.

Ranulf: Yeah, would you? No, wait, Ike. Hold on. Stay here. Iíll calm down... 
Just gimme a second... ...Whooooo!

Elincia: Oh... my lord Ike. I was getting prepared for battle, but... I'm

Ike: Hmm... let me see. Ah... here's the problem. The buckle on the scabbard 
isn't fastened. There's a little trick to this. Don't move for a second. 
...All right. That should do it!
Elincia: Thank you. I just can't seem to do anything right. I can't even get 
myself ready for battle! Everyone else is all suited up.
Ike: Everyone here was the same way when they first started. In fact, it 
wasn't all that long ago when I was having a hard time fastening my 
scabbard...
Elincia: Really?
Ike: That's right. But my father drilled me hard and tested my swordsmanship 
and survival skills before I could eat breakfast. We come from different 
worlds, Princess.
Elincia: So that's how you learned so much...
Ike: Well, you don't need to practice so hard. You weren't born to be a

jump into this rough and nasty war unprepared.

Elincia: I'd feel guilty asking someone to train with me. It would be a waste 
of time... I am no match for their skill.
Ike: I meant what I said earlier... About not hesitating to ask for help? But 
I guess you decided to ignore me.
Elincia: N-no, no... it's not like that at all. I heard what you said, but I

Ike: I know how powerless and frustrated you must feel. It was a terrifying 
feeling when I discovered my father had left me in command of the Greil 
Mercenaries.
Elincia: ...
Ike: But there's a huge difference between inheriting a country and a band of 
mercenaries, isn't there?
Elincia: Not at all... You're absolutely right. It's hard... knowing what kind 
of responsibility I have, and just how unsuited I am to take it.
Ike: Over the last year, I learned a lot from all those battles... Mostly, I 
learned that there are many things I can't do on my own. Everything I achieved 
was possible only because of the people around me. I trust them completely. 
And I'm not ashamed to ask for help. That goes for you, too. You're not alone.

Ike: You've grown strong, Princess.
Elincia: That's only because I had such a great role model.
Ike: Hah! I think you meant to say bad role model, right? By the way, do you 
remember what you said to me on the southern sea?
Elincia: W-what did I say? Hopefully, it was nothing too embarassing.
Ike: You said, "Give them a sound thrashing!"
Elincia: Oh... er... that? That was... um... I was trying to fit in, my lord 
Ike. To be rough and capable like the rest of you.
Ike: You caught me off guard with that one.
Elincia: Hee hee! It brings back memories. When I fled the capital and was 
told about Crimea's defeat in Gallia... I prepared myself to live in crushing, 
colorless despair for the rest of my days. But when I look back, I can see 
there were some warm rays of hope... poking through.
Ike: You're right...
Elincia: Tomorrow, I will face King Daein and reclaim Crimea... or die in the 
attempt. It is the only thing on my mind.

my past. Still... You deserve to know as much about your father as possible... 
All right, I'll tell you.
Ike: Great!
Titania: When I was a Crimean knight, I entered an officer exchange program 
and was sent to Gallia. Where your father was. On my first day, they held a 
joint training session in the royal hall. That's where I saw Commander Greil's 
might for the first time. He took on wave after wave of knights and defeated 
them like they were children. His swordsmanship was brilliant... The other 
knights barely had time to lift their weapons before Commander Greil had them 
on the ground. He was the mightiest warrior I had ever seen. My body... 
trembled at the thought of it.
Ike: Whoa.
Titania: I tried to cross swords with him, but he was so far out of my 
league... Ha! It was laughable! But I asked him to train me, and he agreed. 
After that, whenever we had a spare hour, we would meet and spar. We soon grew 
close, and after a few weeks, he invited me to his home. That's when I saw you.
Ike: Me?
Titania: Yes. You were sleeping in your mother's arms, and she was smiling. 
You were adorable. The Commander looked at you with such kind eyes... I saw a 
different person than the man who wielded a sword.

Titania: Um... All right, but... what's with you? And what have I done to 
deserve your thanks?
Ike: You have done much. You helped my father build this company. He had lost 
his wife and had two young children to care for... I wish to thank you for 
that.
Titania: ...Oh, Ike...
Ike: I've taken everything in my life for granted, and it was all possible 
because of you. My thanks is far too late in coming.
Titania: It's not necessary, Ike. What I did, I did because--
Ike: You loved him. Didn't you?
Titania: ...!!! ...Um...
Ike: Perhaps I'm wrong. Regardless... I stand here alive today because of you. 
And I still want to thank you for it. Had you not lent a helping hand, I would 
most likely be dead. And my father's life cut short as well. You helped to 
keep him alive until the Black Knight brought him down... You made his final 
years happy. Thank you.

Titania: Of course, I don't remember much of the initial encounter, since I 
was unconscious and bleeding! Ha! Remember that? I don't know why we didn't 
bring a healer with us that day... Fighting bandits without a staff? Not 
smart!
Rhys: It was lucky that I found you. I didn't usually venture that deep into 
the forest, but I was short on medicinal herbs.
Titania: Yeah, those bandits were a rough lot... Their stomping ground was 
right near your village, actually. It's all coming back to me now... They 
were tougher than I'd thought. We took most of them out with ease, but one 
fled into the woods and I gave chase. Big mistake. My horse got hung up in 
the undergrowth, and that bandit got the drop on me... At least Shinon hit 
him before I was killed.
Rhys: Gatrie and Shinon were both really worried when they brought you back 
to my parents' house.

living in peace with your parents is more your style.
Rhys: Oh, I don't know. That life wasn't easy. I have a small, frail body, 
and there were few jobs for me in our village. My parents were always worried 
about me. I was sick all the time, and constantly getting bumps and scrapes. 
They only agreed to let me follow you because you were a strong mercenary 
group! They figured I would be safe.
Titania: There must be safer jobs out there! You could be a fisherman, or a 
botanist! Do you like plants?
Rhys: Oh, that would bore me to tears! ...Titania... I love this job. I don't 
want to quit. I was a sickly child, and I didn't get out much. I used to sit

Rhys: Kinda funny, isn't it? You know, I shouldn't say this, but... Sometimes, 
when we fight one long battle after another... It makes me happy. I feel like 
I belong.
Titania: You're a big part of our company, Rhys. I'm glad to hear you say so.

Rhys: Hello, Titania. Could I join your training again today?
Titania: Sure, go ahead! Looks like you're getting your strength back. You 
look healthy.
Rhys: Yes. Thanks to you.
Titania: Oh, I didn't do much... Say, Rhys? What do you think of Ike?
Rhys: Ike? Well, I'm not the person to be judging another's battle skills, so 
I guess you want to know my take of the man... Ike... Well, despite his 
appearance... and the occasional angry outburst... he can be very thoughtful. 
Most importantly, he has doggedness, determination, and grit. He possesses 
the strength to turn ideal into reality. I think he is the right choice to 
lead the Greil Mercenaries.
Titania: I agree with you. But he is still young. He still has much to 
learn, and I wonder how those experiences will shape him. ...Frankly, I'm a 
little concerned.
Rhys: Why is that?
Titania: Our company is only going to grow, and he will soon face many hard 
choices... and also some temptations. Oh, we'll make money... But we're going 
to get job offers that will result in people getting hurt. Or worse. And to 
feed and equip a group of this size, we'll need jobs with a certain amount of 
risk.
Rhys: Commander Greil faced those same problems, didn't he?
Titania: He did, but Greil... He was different. The original Greil Mercenaries 
were famous for not being typical mercenaries. Sometimes we took on jobs for 
free... and we helped countless people at the expense of our own coffers.
Rhys: I believe that Ike holds the same ideals as Commander Greil.
Titania: I'm sure he does. ...Yes, I'm sure of it. Ike will definitely find 
reasons for us to fight and live. He'll pick the right path. I won't have to 
tell him anything. All we have to do is believe in Ike and follow him... to 
the end.
Rhys: Agreed.

Mist: Oh, no, no... Please, you've been fighting all day. I couldn't make you

Titania: We've all had our hands full around here, and you're no exception. 
Now, give me some of those... Wow. Talk about a pile of laundry...
Mist: Yeah. I know I can't wash up after the entire Crimean army, but I 
thought I could at least help the Greil Mercenaries. It's a good way to thank 
the others for all their help.
Titania: Well, it's a thoughtful gesture, but make sure you don't turn it into

Mist: Oh, that's my brother's. He's been fighting too long in these old

I'm going to make him buy a new shirt. If he's going to be general, he'd

Titania: Itís nothing, Mist. Consider it a thank-you for all youíve done. To

many chores, and youíve been helping us all on the battlefield. Itís a lot to 
ask of you. Thatís why Iím trying to make sure you stop and take care of

I hope I haven't lost my touch.
Ike: I haven't had one of your suppers in ages! I'm looking forward to it.
Oscar: Really?
Ike: Yeah, of course! You're a great cook! Why do you ask?
Oscar: Well... I never knew that. Mist, Shinon, and Rhys were the only ones 
who ever commented on the subtle spices and flavors that I use... I mean, my 
brothers are used to my cooking, and Soren hates everything. I think he'd stop 
eating if he could... Sure, Commander Greil, Titania, Gatrie, and you ate 
everything on the plate. But... I feel like you'd eat anything.
Ike: Oscar, I didn't just shovel the food into my mouth. I enjoyed it! I 
really did! Remember the first day that Mist took over your cooking duties? 
Just thinking about it makes me ill... Heh! Even my father was having trouble 
choking it down! But I think Mist is finally starting to get the hang of it.
Oscar: Just like you're training to improve your swordsmanship, Mist is 
training to improve her culinary skills. You should give her more support.

Oscar: How's it going, Ike?
Ike: Oh, hey, Oscar, I'm fine... Actually, I'm kind of worried about something.
Oscar: Can I help?
Ike: Well, I was trying to figure out how we should fight the laguz bird 
tribes.
Oscar: That's odd... I was just thinking about the same thing. When they turn 
into their true selves, we are forced into a kind of battle that is difficult 
for us.
Ike: You're right about that. The laguz are so strong. I've even seen them 
shatter boulders with a single blow. I feel like our weak points are as visible 
as a lit torch for the bird tribes. What's more, my sword is useless if they 
take to the sky...
Oscar: My advice is to keep engaging them. The more we fight, the more we 
learn. Of course, it won't be easy.
Ike: No, but I'm sure we can do it. That's a good idea! Thanks.

The year we completed horsemanship? There was a final race at the end of the

Oscar: Huh? Oh, are you talking about that race you challenged me to? Yeah,

What say you!? Rejoin! For king and country! The homeland is in danger! Any 
who used to be Crimean knights should come rushing to her aid!
Oscar: You have a point. And I'm glad I'm able to help rebuild the homeland, 
even if it's as a mercenary. 
Kieran: I'm not here to make you glad! I'm here to convince you to be a knight 
again! You're not fulfilling your allegiance to sweet Crimea by being a 
mercenary! How can you sleep at night?
Oscar: I love Crimea, but I'm happy here. I want to serve Ike as a member of 
the Greil Mercenaries. Forever.

Oscar: Hello, Kieran. Are you going to ask me to return to the Crimean

fact! No better friend! No worse enemy! A knight distinguishes himself in 
battle, returning in triumph to hear adulation from the people and praise 
from his lord! When you make your name as a knight, everyone knows you! The 
world is laid at your feet! And above all else, you can defend our beloved 
Crimea and her people with your own two hands!!
Oscar: That certainly sounds nice.
Kieran: It's better than the life of a mercenary, cavorting with outlaws and 
entering battles from which you never return! Why, Oscar? Why!? I just don't

Oscar: ...

than anyone. If you say you will come back, I'll do everything I can to 
recommend your honorable return to the knights!
Oscar: Heh. Thanks, Kieran. But I'm not returning. After joining the 
mercenaries, I had a chance to see the world. I saw grief with my own eyes. 
People subjugated by the powerful, losing everything and dying alone... 
Countries can't save people like that. It's up to men like us--men who are in 
the thick of the action--to aid those who cannot aid themselves. Besides, I 
have no use for honor. As long as I can defend the family called the Greil 
Mercenaries, I'm happy.
Kieran: Bla... Blast! You've outdone me again! How can this be? I don't know 
why or how, but... I feel you beat me yet again!
Oscar: You didn't lose. There are many things that a brave knight like 
yourself can do that we mercenaries cannot. So let's both do our best. We may 
stand on different sides of the field, but we aspire to the same ideal.
Kieran: I see... Then I will ask you no more!! Watch me! When Crimea is fully 
restored, my distinguished services will resonate throughout the ages! You'll 
hear about it wherever you are! I'll make sure of it!

Oscar: Iíd heard stories of your bravery before, but to see you in action was 
incredible! To see so many pegasus knights swooping onto the battlefield at 
once, it was like seeing the sun break through the clouds.
Tanith: You over-romanticize us. 
Oscar: Oh, no milady. It was a sight to behold. But, and do not take offense 
to this, might I share an observation with you? It strikes me that your 
strategy works only if you have superior numbers.
Tanith: Admittedly, in most battles, Begnion has the advantage of numbers. I 
canít recommend this tactic in our current campaign. I agree. Our army is 
constantly undermanned. Sometimes, itís a struggle just to get the basic 
necessities! It goes without saying that weíll never have access to all the 
resources that Begnion enjoys. Well, you seem to understand how to fight well 
enough with few numbers. Tell me, what would you do?
Oscar: We take advantage of our individual soldiersí strengths. Where you 
would overwhelm your foes with numbers, we cannot risk the losses. We cannot 
afford to lose a single soldier, even if his sacrifice brings us victory. 
After all, we might win a battle that way, but we will not be able to last out 
the war. Do not let honor drag you into a duel you cannot win. Dishonor is 
better than death if withdrawing means you live to fight again.
Tanith: Retreating from a fight is not an easy thing to do, but I must admit, 
your words make sense given our numbers.
Oscar: And I would hate to lose your strength to preserve something as 
intangible as honor.
Tanith: But you know, the pegasus knights can be stubborn. Iím not sure even 
I can convince them to change their tactics.
Oscar: Then Iíll help you convince them. Maybe my experiences will be all the 
proof they need.
Tanith: Youíd do that?
Oscar: Yes, of course. I donít have even half the experience you do, but if 
thereís any chance I can help, I will.
Tanith: Oh, I think you can be quite persuasive. You know, youíre not what I 
expected from a mercenary.
Oscar: Iím glad to have surprised you then, milady.

insights into mercenary tactics have been helpful. I feel like Iíve learned 
more here than I did at the academy! Why, Iím starting to wish that I could 
take you back to Begnion with me, so that we could all benefit from your 
wisdom.
Oscar: Thatís kind of you to say, milady.
Tanith: By the way... you cook?
Oscar: Yes, milady. As Iíve said, weíre a small company. Each of us handles a 
variety of tasks, from fighting to cooking to cleaning.
Tanith: You are full of surprises!
Oscar: You think so?
Tanith: I may be a fine warrior, but... Itís embarrassing to admit, but I 
canít even crack an egg without hurting someone. The last meal I prepared at 
the academy took three of our finest generals out of action for nearly a 
month.
Oscar: Oh, my...
Tanith: Shocking, isnít it?
Oscar: Oh, no. I take it as a testament to your skills as a warrior. Just... 
remind me never to accept an invitation to dinner. Or... you know, if youíd 
like, I could teach you a little...

Boyd: Aw, that's a bunch of hooey! Survival on a battlefield depends on 
experience and luck. Nothing more! If you dive into battle with a conceited 
attitude, you'll end up dead no matter what blood is in your veins!
Mist: Gee, sorry, Boyd. I was just joking... Hey, don't look so angry...
Boyd: This is no game! We don't fight for fun! Now get out of here... I mean 
it! You're in my way!
Mist: ...Sorry.
Boyd: ...Mist, wait... Ah, heck.

Brom: Good morning! I'm Brom. I take it that you're with Greil Mercenaries?
Boyd: Well, if it isn't the imprisoned papa! I'm Bord. And I'm one of the 
original Greil Mercenaries.
Brom: Oh, that's sweet! You know, you fight pretty well for someone so young.
Boyd: Young? Ha! You're one to talk! I mean, look at you, pops! We had to bust 
you out of a prison, and you're STILL a big fatty! How do you fight with a body 
like that? Doesn't all the jiggling slow you down?
Brom: Aw, you're right...I know it could be trouble during a big battle. But 
this body has served me well! After all, you need a lot of girth to manage a 
mule and plow!
Boyd: You're a farmer, pops?
Brom: That's right! But I hate to think that my big belly would be a burden on 
you... Aw, now I feel terrible! Sniff... Sniff...
Boyd: What--? Hey, don't cry, pops! Look, let's start working out together! 
I'll whip you into shape in no time!
Brom: Really? Do you mean that? That would be great! Whip me into shape, Boyd! 
Oh, my wife will be so surprised!

Brom: Huff... huff... huff... Phew! Hey, Boyd... I'm sorry... for being... 
phew! Being such a drag.
Boyd: You can't help being a slow walker. Don't worry! You're doing fine.
Brom: You really think so? Aw, thanks, Boyd! You know, I may not be in the 
best shape, but I've got more tenacity than anyone. a farmer's work lasts 
all year 'round, after all. You've got to have patience.
Boyd: All year, huh? Tell me, pops. Do you enjor working in the fields?
Brom: You bet! Sure, I've got my share of worries, like bugs and animals and 
bad weather... But it's all worth it come harvest time!
Boyd: Hmm...
Brom: What's wrong?
Boyd: Oh, I was just thinking... The farming life is the complete opposite of 
what we mercenaries do. I mean, a farmer gets to bring life to the world, and 
his work keeps everyone going. But mercenaries? We kill people, and we break 
things, and... Well, we bring death, not life.
Brom: Aw, don't talk it down like that! You get to fight for what's right and 
protect people!
Boyd: Hey, don't get me wrong. The Greil Mercenaries are my family, and I do 
my job becasue I like it. But.. you know that?
Brom: What?
Boyd: Break time's over! Up and at'em pops!! Back to the training!

Huff... Puff...

Brom: whew! Aw, shucks! I give up! You got me! Phew! You're too much for me,

Boyd: You were close this time, pops. You've gotten a lot better. I think we 
can wrap up training soon.
Brom: I've gotten better, huh? You really think so?
Boyd: You're like a full-fledge soldier! There's not an enemy around that 
wouldn't be afraid of you!
Brom: Oh, I'm so happy to hear that! I just didn't want to be a huge burden 
on everyone anymore.
Boyd: Oh, stop it. Keep this up, and you could even be a royal guard after 
the war.
Brom: No thank you! I'm done fighting. When this war is over, I'm going back 
to farming.
Boyd: Listen, pops. Tell me the truth... How does we mercenaries seem to you? 
I mean, to farmers? Simple people.
Brom: What? I don't get you, Boyd.
Boyd: Well, the world is full of mercenaries, but most of them are just 
scoundrels who can't hold any other job, right? So when there's no war to 
fight, they wander then countryside without honest work. A lot of them end up 
stealing from villagers or just turn into common cutthroats.
Brom: Boyd, you're not--
Boyd: Nah, we're not like them. I know that. But... you can't tell that just 
by looking at us. I hear it when I walk through towns. "Careful! The 
mercenaries are back." "They're scrounging for money." It kinda hurts, you 
know? I mean, I don't care what you say about me, but when you talk bad about 
my family...
Brom: Well, Boyd. Here's what I think. Folks always judge, and they're usually 
wrong. That's just how they are, you know? You can't worry about it too much. 
But I like you. And I respect you, too. Shucks, everyone in this company has 
been just great! Anyway, that's what I think.
Boyd: Thanks, pops. That's... good to hear. All right! Back to the training! 
Let's go the extra mile this time!

Ulki: So. What do you want from me?
Boyd: Nothing. I was just noticing your features. You have such an 
interesting face!
Ulki: ...Do you have a problem with my face? There's nothing special about it.
Boyd: No, no problem! It's so tough! Manly! It's the best! I wish it was my

like your large arms.

by name.
Ulki: Very well. I am Ulki. But I ask that you call me that name instead of... 
hawk brother.
Boyd: Yeah, sure. Whatever you want. So, Ulki. What are you doing in a place 
like this?
Ulki: I was listening to the little birds chirp. The song soothes me.
Boyd: Really? ...Nope. I can't hear anything. You must have really good ears.
Ulki: Mmm...
Boyd: You know, I really envy you bird tribes. Being able to fly is the 
greatest thing ever! You're something else in a fight, too! I can't believe 
how you tear through guys. Oh, and it's weird how much we look alike! I mean, 
when you're not shifted. And except for the wings and stuff...
Ulki: ...
Boyd: Oh, hey, sorry. I'm doing all the talking. Sometimes I just start 
rambling on... If I'm bothering you, just say so.

Boyd: There you are! Wait a sec, Ulki!
Ulki: ...
Boyd: Why are you avoiding me? Did I make you mad or something?
Ulki: Boyd...
Boyd: I thought we were friends. I guess we can't be friends because I'm a 
beorc. Is that it?
Ulki: No... You are... good. It's me. I'm the worst.
Boyd: You called yourself that the other day, too. What are you getting at?
Ulki: Mmm... When you first spoke to me... I was suspicious. When a beorc like 
you speaks to a laguz like me... I thought you were plotting something.
Boyd: Er... But you said nice things about me when we first met! Were you 
lying?
Ulki: I thought the exchanging of lies upon a first meeting was a beorc 
tradition. You also gave me a series of flattering compliments that were not 
true, no?
Boyd: No, they were true! Well, mostly... Look, I was nervous! I'm not that 
good at talking to new people.
Ulki: I checked you out when we parted company. I investigated your name. Your 
background. I checked everything.
Boyd: Yowza! Really? So what did you find?
Ulki: Boyd of the Greil Mercenaries. You are a skilled fighter who says what's 
on his mind. It is just as you seemed.
Boyd: ...
Ulki: Even though you showed me goodwill from the very beginning... I had no 
trust in you. I thought you were... mocking me. Or setting me up for a trap. 
That's why I am the worst. I am not worthy of being your friend.
Boyd: Ha ha ha!
Ulki: What is it?
Boyd: We're so alike! At first, I was sure that you would hate me, or claw out 
my eyes, or... something. I didn't think I could just hang out with you like 
Ike does. He's just so darn natural about everything! But then I happened to 
talk to you, and it was really easy! That made me pretty happy. So after that, 
I tried to get to know you. I even followed you around the battlefield.
Ulki: I see.
Boyd: Look, beorc can be a bunch of jerks. I don't blame you for checking me 
out. Heck, I know what we did to your people. But now it's gotta stop. Now 
that you know I'm clean, you have to stop putting up walls. We'll never 
understand each other if you're like that. So tell me straight, yes or no? Are 
we friends or what, Ulki?
Ulki: Yes. I'm sorry, Boyd. If you can forgive me, I want to be your friend.
Boyd: Forgive you? Pah! I wasn't even mad! I was going to be your friend from 
the very beginning!

Titania: How are you feeling, Rhys?
Rhys: Good. No fevers or shaking today! Thanks for asking.
Titania: You know, I was just thinking about the first time we met. It was 
almost a year ago to this very day.
Rhys: Was it really...? Oh, you're right! My, time does fly.
Titania: Of course, I don't remember much of the initial encounter, since I 
was unconscious and bleeding! Ha! Remember that? I don't know why we didn't 
bring a healer with us that day... Fighting bandits without a staff? Not 
smart!
Rhys: It was lucky that I found you. I didn't usually venture that deep into 
the forest, but I was short on medicinal herbs.
Titania: Yeah, those bandits were a rough lot... Their stomping ground was 
right near your village, actually. It's all coming back to me now... They 
were tougher than I'd thought. We took most of them out with ease, but one 
fled into the woods and I gave chase. Big mistake. My horse got hung up in 
the undergrowth, and that bandit got the drop on me... At least Shinon hit 
him before I was killed.
Rhys: Gatrie and Shinon were both really worried when they brought you back 
to my parents' house.
Titania: Really? I didn't know that. Hmm... I didn't think Shinon ever 
worried about anyone... But they stayed with me until my wounds were healed, 
I remember that. You know, if it wasn't for your good work, I wouldn't have 
been able to use an axe anymore! I really appreciate it.
Rhys: No, I should thank you. You convinced Greil to hire me! And now I can 
send money back to my parents. They're both so old, and I'm their only 
source of income.
Titania: Your parents were very kind. Especially your mother... And she made 
that great wildberry pie! To repay their kindness, I will protect their only 
son no matter what.
Rhys: Oh, I appreciate that, Titania!

Rhys: Training again?
Titania: Yep. I get antsy if I don't train every day... Kiyaaaa! Haaaaaa! 
Whew!
Rhys: Would you mind if I joined you for a while?
Titania: What? You want to train? Really? Well, no, of course I wouldn't mind. 
Um... why?
Rhys: I was hoping to find some way to... defend myself. I hate being a burden 
on everyone.
Titania: Rhys! You're a healer, not a fighter. That's not your fault. I don't 
even think you know which end of a sword to stick in someone! Maybe...
Rhys: Yes, Titania?
Titania: I just wondered if you'd be happier had you not rescued me. Perhaps 
living in peace with your parents is more your style.
Rhys: Oh, I don't know. That life wasn't easy. I have a small, frail body, 
and there were few jobs for me in our village. My parents were always worried 
about me. I was sick all the time, and constantly getting bumps and scrapes. 
They only agreed to let me follow you because you were a strong mercenary 
group! They figured I would be safe.
Titania: There must be safer jobs out there! You could be a fisherman, or a 
botanist! Do you like plants?
Rhys: Oh, that would bore me to tears! ...Titania... I love this job. I don't 
want to quit. I was a sickly child, and I didn't get out much. I used to sit 
inside and listen to the other children play... In those years, my uncle took 
me under his wing. He was a mercenary, too. He used to spin unbelievable yarns 
about his exotic travels and fantastic battles... It inspired me.
Titania: I had no idea!
Rhys: Kinda funny, isn't it? You know, I shouldn't say this, but... Sometimes, 
when we fight one long battle after another... It makes me happy. I feel like 
I belong.
Titania: You're a big part of our company, Rhys. I'm glad to hear you say so.

Rhys: Hello, Titania. Could I join your training again today?
Titania: Sure, go ahead! Looks like you're getting your strength back. You 
look healthy.
Rhys: Yes. Thanks to you.
Titania: Oh, I didn't do much... Say, Rhys? What do you think of Ike?
Rhys: Ike? Well, I'm not the person to be judging another's battle skills, so 
I guess you want to know my take of the man... Ike... Well, despite his 
appearance... and the occasional angry outburst... he can be very thoughtful. 
Most importantly, he has doggedness, determination, and grit. He possesses 
the strength to turn ideal into reality. I think he is the right choice to 
lead the Greil Mercenaries.
Titania: I agree with you. But he is still young. He still has much to 
learn, and I wonder how those experiences will shape him. ...Frankly, I'm a 
little concerned.
Rhys: Why is that?
Titania: Our company is only going to grow, and he will soon face many hard 
choices... and also some temptations. Oh, we'll make money... But we're going 
to get job offers that will result in people getting hurt. Or worse. And to 
feed and equip a group of this size, we'll need jobs with a certain amount of 
risk.
Rhys: Commander Greil faced those same problems, didn't he?
Titania: He did, but Greil... He was different. The original Greil Mercenaries 
were famous for not being typical mercenaries. Sometimes we took on jobs for 
free... and we helped countless people at the expense of our own coffers.
Rhys: I believe that Ike holds the same ideals as Commander Greil.
Titania: I'm sure he does. ...Yes, I'm sure of it. Ike will definitely find 
reasons for us to fight and live. He'll pick the right path. I won't have to 
tell him anything. All we have to do is believe in Ike and follow him... to 
the end.
Rhys: Agreed.

grand archrival!
Rhys: Hah! Haaa... Um... I don't think that's likely to happen, Mia. 
Although... it's true that I once wanted to be a fighter, back when I was a 
frail child.
Mia: Aha! I knew it! You can't give up unharnessed talent like yours just 
because you're frail! Give it a try. C'mon! I'll train you myself! We'll start

for you and make sure you're holding up. You know, I've been thinking for a 
bit... And... Um... And I've decided to stop believing in fortune-telling.
Rhys: Well... maybe the fortune's meaning was just mixed up--
Mia: Hogwash! No more excuses! It's all a bunch of hooey! But hey, wait a 
second... "With white robes flowing in the breeze, your archrival rides toward 
you..." ...RIDES toward you... Could he be a mounted soldier and not a 
myrmidon?
Rhys: Huh?
Mia: You may be horse-riding material, Rhys. Yeah, that's it! Marching is a 
lot easier on horseback. Wouldn't that be better for you?
Rhys: What!? Me on h-horseback!?
Mia: Yeah! You wear white, too! Don't you think you'd look dashing on 
horseback!? Swing your staff from the top of a horse and I'll fight in style

Rolf: I know! All that you and me and Mist ever did was stay behind at the

before hitting the battlefield, it would be a shame... Oh, what to do...
Rhys: We'd be in trouble if we lose you, Kieran! Er... Oh! Yes! You see, we 
can't achieve victory without our greatest soldier--that would be you--in our

Kieran: I see. Yes, you're right! You're absolutely right! Our army's finest 
warrior cannot afford to push it too far! Very well. I'm not sure how this 
will work, but I will take better care of myself! From now on... simple

Flying wherever you want, whenever you want?!
Ulki: Um... Fantastic. Yes. I suppose. I never thought of it.

the favor! I'm making it one whittle at a time. I know it's not exactly the 
best-looking weapon out there, but... I hope you'll use it!
Shinon: Meh. Maybe if I overhauled it... I may be able to... call it a... bow. 
This thing is going to break the first time I fire it! You want me to be 
unarmed on the battlefield? Is that it?
Rolf: I... I don't--
Shinon: Look, to begin with, you used the wrong kind of wood. This is much too 
hard and inflexible. Remember the bow I made for you? It didn't look like 
this, did it?

leave.
Rolf: YOU THREW MY BOW AWAY!!
Shinon: Listen, Rolf. If I had let you onto a battlefield with that bow, you 
would have been killed. I prevented your death in advance... Heck, I saved 
your life! You should be thanking me.
Rolf: I know that, Uncle Shinon, but... I put my whole heart into that bow! I 
just wanted you to be happy. The first time I went into battle, my feet were 
shaking because I was so scared. But then I held the bow that you made for me, 
and it gave me strength. And I said, "Rolf! You can do this!" I learned 
absolutely everything from you! That's how I've stayed alive this whole time.
Shinon: ...But why on earth... Why would you depend on me like that? I mean, I 
just taught you how to fire the bow on a whim.
Rolf: But it still made me happy! My brothers never let me do anything. They 
still treat me like a baby. If you hadn't taught me archery, I'd be sitting at 
home right now! I hate waiting around while everyone is fighting for their 
lives. I mean, we all made it back yesterday but... What about today? Or 
tomorrow? At home, all you do is wait and wait and feel terrible. I hate it!
Shinon: Rolf, I know how you feel, but... adults don't want to send kids to a 
battlefield if they can help it. Only a complete madman wants to be involved 
in the death of someone else. Especially if it's a kid. But the sad thing is, 
it's more about making ourselves feel better than saving the life of another. 
The fear of being responsible for a death is always in the back of our minds, 
so we try to lessen the guilt as much as possible. Humans... most humans... 
feel the pain of others. Holding that back is a lot harder than you think.
Rolf: Wow. I never thought about that.
Shinon: It's a rough lesson to learn. Bah! I hate adults like nothing else. 
All ego and pride... Kids live a more honorable existance. But you're growing 
up fast. So the sooner you learn to survive, the better.
Rolf: So that's why you taught me archery, isn't it? It wasn't just a whim!
Shinon: ...Well... Maybe... But if that's what you want to think, and it puts 
you in a good mood, it's fine by me.

Shinon: Why did you join Ike's army if you feel that way? Did the king order 
it?
Janaff: No. The relationship with our king is not one-sided like that. If we 
do not deem the king's orders to be right and just, we will not obey them.
Shinon: Then why did you join?
Janaff: Commander Ike saved one of my friends in Serenes. Though my first duty 
is always as Prince Reyson's bodyguard, I also hope to return the favor. I 
trust the commander. I... like him.
Shinon: Ha! At least someone does.

all for granted.

choice to feel this way, so I'll keep doing it.
Janaff: Heh. You've got that right.
Shinon: Wait, wait. Why am I talking about this stuff with you?
Janaff: You know what, Shinon? You kind of... You remind me of me when I was 
young.

Gatrie: Hey there, Astrid! Have I told you yet just how glad I am that you've 
joined our little band of warriors?
Astrid: No, but I'm flattered that you say so. I'm glad to be riding with you 
as well. I heard you were once among Ike's band of mercenaries. Is that true?
Gatrie: Oh, yeah... We go way back. I've been through a lot with them. Is 
there anything I can help you out with? I'm always glad to assist such a 
beautiful girl.
Astrid: Oh... Thank you, Gatrie. Actually... Will you teach me how to fight 
like a mercenary?
Gatrie: Eh? You want to fight like a mercenary?
Astrid: I don't have much fighting experience. I want to learn so I can hold 
my own in a battle. I don't want to be a burden.
Gatrie: Oh, I get it! That's very admirable, Astrid! Er... But now isn't the 
best time for that. I'm a little sore from... uh... lifting heavy things... 
Blast! Where's Titania when you need her? I don't know the first thing about 
training people...
Astrid: Sorry? I didn't catch that.
Gatrie: Ha ha! No, nothing at all! Let's train some other day! I want to make

Astrid: Perhaps next time, then. I'm looking forward to it!

Astrid: Gatrie? I'm here for my lesson. Are you ready?
Gatrie: Of course, of course! Er... ahem. All right then. Let's begin!
Astrid: I'm eagerly awaiting your first instruction.
Gatrie: Er... Every soldier has a role, and it's important that everyone does 
what everyone is best at. With the right strategy, three soldiers can fight 
with the strength of ten!
Astrid: I see... So everyone must fight to their strength. All right, I got it.
Gatrie: My job as a knight is to bravely step up and shield my allies from 
vicious, marauding attackers! I'm like an armored wall! Then, the others can 
launch an attack from behind my impenetrable frame. Archers wait safely behind 
me and strike from a distance, while mounted units can ride in and crush the 
enemy. Well, that's what I hear... Er, I mean... that's pretty much how it all 
goes down in the heat of combat!
Astrid: I see, but...
Gatrie: Don't worry! You can stay safely behind me. It's far too dangerous for 
you to venture away from me. Stay close... Yes, VEEERY close! Go on, don't be 
shy!
Astrid: All right... I'll stay close. Oh, may I ask you just one more question?
Gatrie: Ask anything!
Astrid: Since I'm on horseback and you're on foot, won't we move at different 
speeds? What should I do?
Gatrie: Hmmm... In that case... Um... Yaaaaa! I can't remember what Titania 
said...
Astrid: Pardon me?
Gatrie: Oh, nothing! Nothing at all. Hah! Just talking to myself! We'll get 
into that in your next lesson.
Astrid: Right, of course. I sure learned a lot today. You'll coach me again, 
won't you? Thank you,

Astrid: It means changing your strategy to take advantage of different 
circumstances.
Gatrie: Ahhh... So that's what it means... Er, yes! That's exactly right! 
You're smart AND beautiful, Astrid! I knew what adaptation meant. I just wanted 
to test my favorite student, and she passed!
Astrid: Oh, you flatter me! Thank you for your kind words.
Gatrie: Well, I do have one more test question... Er... do you... have a 
boyfriend?
Astrid: A boyfriend?
Gatrie: That's right! Oh, don't worry! I don't happen to have a girlfriend. 
You know... for the moment.
Astrid: I don't have a boyfriend. But... I do have a fiance.
Gatrie: What?! A fiance?!
Astrid: Yes.
Gatrie: Well, er... Congratulations!
Astrid: Gatrie! Do you have something in your eye?
Gatrie: Oh... Don't worry about me. ...Sniff... Sniff... As long as you're 
happy... Sniiiifff...
Astrid: Gatrie! Where are you going?
Gatrie: I screwed up again! I thought I had a chance this time, too. Hmmm... 
Wait... She said she had a fiance, didn't she? Going out of her way to tell me 
that... She must want me to swoon her off her feet and steal her away! 
That's it! She should have just said so! Wait for me, Astrid!

Ike: What's wrong? You've been quiet and moody for days. What's going on?
Soren: Um... Well, it's...
Ike: Yes?
Soren: ...It's nothing. ... ...You've never worried about who you are, have 
you? Your family? Where you came from?
Ike: Who I am...? Well, not really. No. I guess I don't understand what 
you're getting at. I had a father and a mother. I don't remember much about 
her, but otherwise, no complaints.
Soren: It must be... nice to have loving parents. You need people to 
experience your childhood. To help shape the person you will become. Without 
an adult around to affirm and support them, a child can't know which path to 
take. Or who he really is.
Ike: Don't you have any memory of your parents?
Soren: No. The woman who raised me was not my birth mother. And she wasn't all 
that fond of me, anyway... My earliest memories are of her saying, "Why me? 
The world isn't fair!" or "Stay away from me, child!" No love. No affection. 
She took care of me out of some sense of duty that she didn't really possess. 
Ike: ...
Soren: When I was about four, a nearby sage came by and asked to take me in. 
He said I possessed rare magical talent. I remember the day clearly. My 
caretaker was delighted to give me up. In fact, she seemed almost delirious 
with pleasure. Smiling like a madwoman as she handed me over... The sage even 
gave her gold as compensation. Not that it was necessary.
Ike: Oh, Soren... I had no idea.
Soren: The sage was old, and knew that death would soon come for him. His only 
goal was to teach his art to an apprentice. As time was short, he put me 
through terribly rigorous magic training. We worked day and night, without 
cease. I didn't even have time to think about who I really was. But it was 
still a better life than I had ever known. When the sage died two years later, 
I had acquired much magical skill. Perhaps too much for a child of my age... 
At any rate, once I had eaten all of the food in the sage's hovel, I left and 
walked for days to find help. Upon reaching civilization, I came to another 
grim realization... I couldn't speak. Not a word.
Ike: Soren...
Soren: Oh, I could read and write better than most of the villagers. And I 
could understand what they said. I just couldn't talk. I couldn't help it. The 
woman and the sage both used to hurl words at me. Unkind words, usually. But I 
never needed to answer, so--
Ike: Soren!
Soren: Huh? Oh... I apologize, Ike. I should not have made you listen to such 
nonsense...
Ike: Soren, it's no nonsense! It's awful! It's the most terrible thing I've 
ever heard! Where did this happen? Was it in Begnion?
Soren: No... But, there's more. I haven't told you... About my parents... No, 
that's enough. I'm sorry. Excuse me... 
Ike: Wait, Soren? Soren! Blast!

-A Support-

Ike: Hey, Soren.
Soren: ...
Ike: I've been thinking a lot about what you said the other day, and there's 
something I still don't understand. You survived. You're strong. Why would 
you feel insecure about who you are? Tell me. Tell me everything.
Soren: Curse you! Why can't you leave me be?! I don't have any friends, Ike! 
I don't have anyone else! If I tell you and you turn on me... I... I... I 
don't think I can survive it.
Ike: That's why you have to tell me, Soren. You'll never tell anyone else. 
And if you don't tell anyone, you're just going to keep suffering. Look at 
you! You're a mess! Come on. Talk to me.
Soren: Ike... I... I...
Ike: Soren, it's me! Trust me. I don't give two figs who your parents are! 
I'll stand by you.
Soren: Ike, I... sniff... No, I won't... sniff... Ah, Ike... ...I'm... 
Branded. I'm one of the Branded.
Ike: A Branded? What's that?
Soren: It's a cross between a beorc and a laguz. Such a taboo violates 
every teaching of the goddess. And of society. We are untouchables. 
Abominations. Condemned to a life of hatred and shunning from both races.
Ike: Wait, wait. Hold it a second. Let me make sure that I follow you... 
You're part laguz?
Soren: Yeah. This mark on my forehead is the proof. I learned about it 
while researching ancient books at the Mainal Cathedral. I always thought it 
was a birthmark. Others thought that it was the mark of a Spirit Charmer.
Ike: What's a Spirit Charmer?
Soren: Magic comes from interaction with spirits. If you let one into your 
body, it will give you tremendous power... for a price. That's why the old 
sage was so interested in me. He thought I had struck such a deal. But 
instead, I was just a filthy Branded.
Ike: All right. I understand. So?
Soren: ...What do you mean, "so?"
Ike: So, you have laguz blood in your veins. So, you have a mark to prove it. 
So... What's the problem?
Soren: What's the problem...? Don't you find me repugnant!? I work beside you, 
eat beside you. I'm nothing! I don't belong anywhere! Doesn't that sicken you?
Ike: No. It doesn't change anything. You're still you, Soren! You're a capable 
officer of our army. And my friend. We can't keep going unless you are with 
us.
Soren: ...Ike... I thought... I thought you...
Ike: What?
Soren: It was Gallia. The sage lived in Gallia. A few beorcs had settled there 
and...
Ike: Gallia? Are you saying...
Soren: When the sage died, no one would help me. I couldn't speak. Couldn't 
find food. I was dying. You were the only one who helped. You and your father. 
That's why you're my friend. My... only friend.

Although... it's true that I once wanted to be a fighter, back when I was a 
frail child.

because you're frail! Give it a try. C'mon! I'll train you myself! We'll start

Mia: Hogwash! No more excuses! It's all a bunch of hooey! But hey, wait a 
second... "With white robes flowing in the breeze, your archrival rides toward 
you..." ...RIDES toward you... Could he be a mounted soldier and not a 
myrmidon?

same side, I'm often forgotten. Ahhh... Whoa...
Mordecai: Mmm? What is wrong?
Ilyana: I'm... I'm sorry. I got a little dizzy, there. Don't worry about it. 
It happens all the time.
Mordecai: Hmmm... You are skinny. Even for a beorc. Can you fight?
Ilyana: I can... Somehow.
Mordecai: But you are as thin as a paper. Won't the enemy tear you to shreds?
Ilyana: There's nothing I can do about my size. When that happens... I'm

will keep your skinny beorc body safe.

That's incredible!
Mordecai: Grrrrr! Count on me for a strong back and a pair of paws. 
Uuuuuurrrrrrffffff! These are the last ones.
Ilyana: How can you carry all those at once? I could never do that.
Mordecai: Eat big meals and get meat on your bones. Then you can lift crates 
like me.
Ilyana: I would love to eat big meals... But I can't. Because... well... I 
have no money... That's why I faint all the time.
Mordecai: Mmm? You go hungry because you don't have money for food? That 
shames us all. It will end now. Take my gold... Go! Feast! Eat as much as 
you want. Become fat and happy, little beorc.

Mordecai: Yes.
Ilyana: Anything? Anything at all?

Ilyana: The food was delicious. I could have eaten more!
Mordecai: I would feed you again, but you ate through all my beorc money. 
Where do you put all that food?
Ilyana: Well... in my stomach...
Mordecai: You are like the furry little squirrels that live with us in the

Ilyana: To be honest, I don't know why I'm so hungry. I'm never full. I always 
get hungry as soon as I eat. Normally, I eat about as much food as five

see... there was this one incident with a marmot... Well, I just try to stay 
close to the target now. It's not the best way to train, but at least it gets 
me some practice.

Rolf: A deadly mercenary? You really think so?
Marcia: Yes, and it's not just your bowmanship. You're quite tenacious. You're 
so focused on hitting your targets that you don't even feel pain. Few people 
are that determined.
Rolf: Does that mean I'll be able to make a difference? Will I be able to 
protect them when they're in danger?
Marcia: I'll tell you one thing... the enemy better stay out of bowshot, or 
you'll turn him into a porcupine!

the Begnion Holy Guard?
Marcia: I'm... I'm no deserter! Didn't you read the letter of resignation I

intense missions... You were no coward, Marcia.  I've even seen  some 
knights leave because of a silly romantic distraction... but not you.
Marcia: Well, if you must know... My brother went missing after he accrued a 
massive debt.
Tanith: Debt?
Marcia: Yes. Men began coming to my barracks to collect their money instead 
of hunting down my brother. That's why I went to find him. I met Ike and his 
company during my search, and I joined after they saved me from a vicious band 
of boat monkeys. But I still didn't find my brother.
Tanith: ...
Marcia: I figured that if I travelled with Ike, I'd eventually find my 
brother. That's why I'm still with them.
Tanith: I see... So he skipped town because of his debts. As your superior 
officer, I do feel some sympathy for you.

You will still be punished once my mission is complete.

been an iron rule. I cannot make a special exception for you.
Marcia: Deputy Commander... Why do you have to be so mean?!
Tanith: Why am I mean!? Because you deserted, I had to--
Marcia: You were always like that. Unlike Commander Sigrun, you never once 
commended our unit.  You think you understand us, but you don't.  You're 
just heartless and frigid.
Tanith: Don't you get it?  Why do you think I'm coming down on you so hard!?
Marcia: Excuse me?
Tanith: I wouldn't normally say this, but...I had high expectations for you, 
Marcia. I thought you could take the reins and someday lead the Holy Guard.
Marcia: What!?  Where did that come from?  Back in Begnion, you said nothing 
about any of this.
Tanith: Do you think I would say something like that on my own?  I have no 
choice now. I'll offer counsel to the commander, and see to it that you 
have a place back on the Guard. If you come back, I might just forget all 
about your desertion.

Mist: Hey, you're the one who tried to blow off training! If you keep ignoring 
your drills, I'm going to become a better mercenary than you!
Boyd: Better than me? Ha. HA! Dream on, kid! You've got some nerve saying that 
to me!
Mist: Kid? You better remember who my father is! Fighting ability runs in the 
blood, you know.
Boyd: Aw, that's a bunch of hooey! Survival on a battlefield depends on 
experience and luck. Nothing more! If you dive into battle with a conceited 
attitude, you'll end up dead no matter what blood is in your veins!
Mist: Gee, sorry, Boyd. I was just joking... Hey, don't look so angry...
Boyd: This is no game! We don't fight for fun! Now get out of here... I mean

Mist: ...Sorry.

Rolf: I'm glad you're safe... Somehow, we're both still alive.

Rolf: My head was pounding and my hands were shaking so badly that I almost 
shot an arrow into Boyd's backside.
Mist: Tee hee! Good thing you didn't, or he would have given you a smacking! 
I was so... scared. I heard yelling... screaming... and the most awful howls 
of agony. I felt dizzy and sick.
Rolf: I wasn't scared at all. Maybe I was a little nervous... But by the end, 
I was almost hitting my targets!
Mist: You weren't even a little scared?

worry... I'll fight for you!
Mist: That's not what I meant, and you know it! You've got to stop fighting,

Rolf: I can't do that. I have to slay our enemies and defend our own. I'm a

Did something happen?

Rhys: Today I feel fine, thanks. I did light exercise this morning and 
finished all my breakfast. 
Rolf: Oh, I'm glad to hear that! When it's hard for you, let me know! I 
remember when you used to get sick and stay in bed all the time! But here you 
are, fighting every day.
Rhys: Ha! I remember those days... This new job is hard sometimes, but it's 
nice to be with everyone.
Rolf: I know! All that you and me and Mist ever did was stay behind at the 
stupid fort while everyone else was fighting. Being left alone was sad and 
scary, huh?
Rhys: Yes, I suppose it was... Remember the time we heard Commander Greil 
discussing that dangerous mission in the strategy room? When our friends 
left the fort, the three of us prayed so hard for their safe return... Those 
were the longest days of my life.

Shinon: Listen, Rolf. If I had let you onto a battlefield with that bow, you 
would have been killed. I prevented your death in advance... Heck, I saved 
your life! You should be thanking me.
Rolf: I know that, Uncle Shinon, but... I put my whole heart into that bow! I 
just wanted you to be happy. The first time I went into battle, my feet were 
shaking because I was so scared. But then I held the bow that you made for me, 
and it gave me strength. And I said, "Rolf! You can do this!" I learned 
absolutely everything from you! That's how I've stayed alive this whole time.
Shinon: ...But why on earth... Why would you depend on me like that? I mean, I 
just taught you how to fire the bow on a whim.
Rolf: But it still made me happy! My brothers never let me do anything. They 
still treat me like a baby. If you hadn't taught me archery, I'd be sitting at 
home right now! I hate waiting around while everyone is fighting for their 
lives. I mean, we all made it back yesterday but... What about today? Or 
tomorrow? At home, all you do is wait and wait and feel terrible. I hate it!
Shinon: Rolf, I know how you feel, but... adults don't want to send kids to a 
battlefield if they can help it. Only a complete madman wants to be involved 
in the death of someone else. Especially if it's a kid. But the sad thing is, 
it's more about making ourselves feel better than saving the life of another. 
The fear of being responsible for a death is always in the back of our minds, 
so we try to lessen the guilt as much as possible. Humans... most humans... 
feel the pain of others. Holding that back is a lot harder than you think.
Rolf: Wow. I never thought about that.
Shinon: It's a rough lesson to learn. Bah! I hate adults like nothing else. 
All ego and pride... Kids live a more honorable existance. But you're growing 
up fast. So the sooner you learn to survive, the better.
Rolf: So that's why you taught me archery, isn't it? It wasn't just a whim!
Shinon: ...Well... Maybe... But if that's what you want to think, and it puts 
you in a good mood, it's fine by me.

Rolf: Aren't you strict with yourself, Marcia?
Marcia: Hm? What, me? Pfff! Of course! I'm stricter than a poached egg on

old unit told me. But you're still...
Rolf: A child? I'm not a child. Those days ended the instant I took my first 
life.
Marcia: ...I suppose you're right. You've had to grow up fast traveling with a 
group of hardened sellswords like this.
Rolf: Do you worry about me because I'm young?
Marcia: Well... sure. Who wouldn't?
Rolf: Well, stop it. I can take care of myself. I've grown strong.
Marcia: True enough. Sorry if I underestimated you.

Marcia: You landed every one of your shots!
Rolf: Hitting the target isn't good enough. My instructor once told me that I 
should be able to strike the gaps between armor plates.
Marcia: That's nearly impossible... but maybe you'll be that good one day. 
Hold on... Rolf, let me see your hands.
Rolf: My hands?
Marcia: Oh, barnacles! Your hands are covered with blisters! And you're 
bleeding! Why are you still practicing like this? What's wrong with you!?
Rolf: It hurt at first, but my hands went numb after a while--so I just kept 
plucking arrows out of my quiver.
Marcia: Holy crow, Rolf... You're tough, I'll give you that. Hold still. I 
know I have a vulnerary around here... There, found it. This may sting a 
little.
Rolf: Thank-YOOOOWWWCCHHH!!! Hey, that hurt!
Marcia: That's nothing for a deadly mercenary like you. Right, Rolf?
Rolf: A deadly mercenary? You really think so?
Marcia: Yes, and it's not just your bowmanship. You're quite tenacious. You're 
so focused on hitting your targets that you don't even feel pain. Few people 
are that determined.
Rolf: Does that mean I'll be able to make a difference? Will I be able to 
protect them when they're in danger?
Marcia: I'll tell you one thing... the enemy better stay out of bowshot, or 
you'll turn him into a porcupine!
Rolf: Thanks, Marcia. I promise to protect you, too.
Marcia: Rolf... I'll look out for you, too. Why... Aw, nuts. ...Did you have 
to grow up so fast?

your name, young man?
Rolf: Rolf.
Tauroneo: Rolf, eh? Whatís a child like you doing in a place like this? The 
battlefield is no place for children. Why do your parents allow this?
Rolf: I... donít have any parents. My dad left us... and my mom died.
Tauroneo: Oh, no... Iím sorry. I didnít mean to drag up such a painful memory.
Rolf: Thatís all right. This group of mercenaries is my family now. So... I 
look like someone you know?
Tauroneo: My... son. Josh. My oldest. Josh is an adult now. But he looked so 
much like you, once. Long ago... I canít believe I thought you were my own son. 
Iíve grown old and senile. Ha! Foolish old man...
Rolf: Whereís Josh now?
Tauroneo: I donít know.
Rolf: What?
Tauroneo: I divorced my wife, and she took the children with her. I havenít 
seen them since. That was years ago. 

-B Support- 

Tauroneo: For generations, we made a reputation for ourselves in Daein as a 
famed warrior family. Both my father and I had the honor of serving the royal 
family as field generals. We were a proud family...
Rolf: What happened with Josh?
Tauroneo: I raised him to serve the Daein army, as my father raised me. He 
tried to live up to my high expectations. He became a decorated knight at a 
young age and was assigned to the palace guard. However...
Rolf: What happened? 
Tauroneo: He took to the field as Ashnardís personal aide. And he came home on 
a litter, grievously wounded. He escaped death, but he didnít escape his 
wounds. Heíll never walk again.
Rolf: Oh, no...
Tauroneo: My wife nearly lost her mind. She cried day and night, swearing that 
she couldnít live if something like that were to ever happen again. She wanted 
to live in peace... with her mind at ease. She pleaded with me to leave the 
army. But I couldnít accept her plea. Our family house was built on 
generations of proud military command. Our ancient name as a warrior family 
would not allow me to simply abandon my sworn duty. I tried to salvage our 
honor by training my younger son. He was just a boy, really. I wanted him to 
become a Daein general.
Rolf: You did what?!
Tauroneo: I know... I was a fool. I was blinded by tradition and family 
reputation. By the time I realized my error, my wife and children had left me. 
Since then... Iíve been living alone in my great mansion, surrounded by 
countless medals and memories... Alone... for years...

Tauroneo: Ah, I was wrong... I wish I could apologize to my family.
Rolf: Do you have any idea where your family is? Any clues? Anything?
Tauroneo: ...Iíve heard my wife left Daein and went to live with relatives 
in Crimea. I suppose she is still there.
Rolf: Then why donít you go see her!
Tauroneo: Iím sure they donít want to have anything to do with me. Even if I 
did find them, reappearing now would just reopen old wounds. I donít want to 
cause any more pain.
Rolf: Thatís just crazy! I mean... I wish I could see my dad!
Tauroneo: ...
Rolf: Iíve always told my brothers that Iím all right and Iím not lonely. But 
the truth is I want to see my dad. Weíve got so much to talk about.
Tauroneo: Oh, son...
Rolf: My dad is dead. I canít see him again. But your boy can. Youíre still

Tauroneo: Youíre... right. But it is simply too late.
Rolf: Itís NOT too late! As long as youíre still alive, itís never too late.

Lethe: Yep. I'm curious... Our future success will depend in large part on how 
well you humans fight. We laguz can't afford to lag behind.
Ike: You always need the upper hand, eh, Lethe?
Lethe: Relax. It's not like I'm going to claw you in the back during a battle. 
There's no point in it. Besides, you humans are the only ones who use dirty 
tricks like that.
Ike: Oh, I see. So every laguz fights fair and square?
Lethe: Most of us. Not all. Although we know when a laguz is about to use a 
cheap trick. We can smell it. I can sniff out a trap from a mile away. Even in 
the dark. You can hide from my eyes, but not my nose.
Ike: Lethe? Will you teach me how to fight like a laguz?
Lethe: Sure, I'll take you on. But it's going to hurt! When I fight, it's with 
my claws out.
Ike: Good. I look forward to it.

Ike: Lethe. What's up?
Lethe: You fought pretty well the other day. Better than I expected.
Ike: What? Me?
Lethe: You see anyone else?
Ike: No, but... I didn't expect that from you. You laguz have such awesome 
natural power, I figure beorc look weak in comparison.
Lethe: Totally different styles of fighting. You don't have the reactions or 
control that we do, but you're actually kind of graceful. It must be tough to 
use a weapon that's not actually connected to your body. No wonder you train 
so much.
Ike: Without teeth or claws, we need our weapons to move like they're a part 
of us. So, yeah, that takes a lot of work.
Lethe: Mmm... I see. I may have to train some more. Which reminds me... Do you 
remember our bargain?

Lethe: What's that supposed to mean? You're not still holding a grudge about 
our first meeting, are you?
Ike: No, nothing like that. It's just... Your powerful, you know? If you 
compliment me, that means something.
Lethe: Bah! You give me too much credit. ...Um... Say, Ike?
Ike: What?
Lethe: When this war is over, you should... Why don't you come to Gallia? I 
mean, not like I care, but--
Ike: Gallia?
Lethe: Right! Well, you could learn even more if you trained in Gallia. It's 
hard living for a beorc. But if you can handle it, you could take the 
swordsmanship that runs in your blood to another level.
Ike: Only if you're my sparring partner!
Lethe: Meh... Well, if that's what you want... I guess I'd be all right with 
that.

Jill: Jill... My name is... Jill.
Lethe: Fine. Jill. What brings you here today? More stupid questions?
Jill: I've been thinking about things, and I haven't been able to figure 
out... See, in Daein we were taught that you attack humans indiscriminately 
and without mercy. That you are just savage animals.
Lethe: Laguz attacking humans? Grrrrawl! What garbage! We dislike even the 
company of humans and want nothing to do with them. Even mauling you would 
be... unpleasant.
Jill: But in Daein, everyone believes that to be the truth! That's why... 
That's why I never questioned it. But when I saw you fight beside Ike and 
other humans on the South Sea, I knew that something was wrong. You were so 
different from what I imagined! Ever since I was young, they filled my head 
with tales of your terrible claws and teeth... But you stand on two legs. And 
you talk... You even make jokes! ...Sometimes... You're much closer to us than 
a beast!
Lethe: So glad to hear it.
Jill: I wonder why humans and sub-humans started fighting in the first place? 
Maybe we're just destined for war.
Lethe: Well, I don't know much about that. It's not for me to say if the 
goddess made us a certain way or if we're just two races that don't like each 
other very much. But I know that Gallia, Phoenicis, and Kilvas all have a 
reason to hate humans.
Jill: W-what reason?
Lethe: ...Are you serious? I take it humans aren't interested in passing 
history down to their children... ...Typical. All right... Centuries ago, when 
Begnion was still a monarchy, the only countries were Begnion and Goldoa. 
Goldoa was as it is today: a reclusive nation inhabited only by dragon tribes. 
All the other laguz lived in Begnion with the humans.
Jill: Humans and sub-humans used to live together in Begnion?! I had no idea...
Lethe: A human was named as the first king, although the laguz's superior 
strength led us to rule more often than not. Despite the harmony that most 
felt about this arrangement, the senators wanted nothing to do with it. In the 
name of the "apostle," they claimed that only a human could be the true ruler 
of Begnion... and started a civil war. Like blind, mewling kittens, the laguz 
kings underestimated the situation... We never had a chance. Caught by 
surprise, my brothers suffered defeat after defeat in the face of superior 
human weapons and magic. ...That was the start of long, dark days... The start 
of laguz slavery.
Jill: ...
Lethe: After nearly 200 years, a small number of enslaved laguz managed to 
escape their human captors in Begnion. The beast tribe fled to the mountains 
and unexplored forest areas--places where humans were loathe to tread. The 
bird tribes, on the other hand, escaped to the distant southern islands. This 
is how our laguz kingdoms began. It took another eighty years, and the blood 
of many brother laguz, until we were formally recognized as nations. This is 
why we fight. Why we hate. Humans don't want former slaves to have countries 
and be treated as equals. Laguz carry the shame of the past deep in their 
hearts, and struggle still for the freedom that you take for granted. This is 
the true history of Tellius... No wonder humans would bury it.
Jill: I don't know wh--
Lethe: What to say? Idiot! Think! Think about what I have said. Think about 
what you have seen with your eyes and heard with your ears. If you don't even 
have the guts to do that, never show yourself in my presence again!
Jill: Um... all right...

Lethe: ...
Jill: Oh, Lethe! I thought about what you said, and I deci--
Lethe: I hear the dragon knight we fought in Talrega was your father. Why? Why 
did you stay with us? Choosing a band of mercenaries over your own father?
Jill: ...Fate works in strange ways. Had I not known about Commander Ike and 
the mercenaries... Had I not known about you laguz... I'm sure I would be with 
Daein even now. Taking pride in my work as a Daein soldier and offering my life 
for Ashnard. I wouldn't have hesitated to smite you all. But now I have 
learned the truth...
Lethe: ...And?
Jill: This isn't like the time I chased your ship from Port Toha, hoping to 
win fame and approval from my father. When I joined you, I acted on my own 
accord. For the first time. I chose what I thought was a righteous path. Even 
if my decision forced me to face my own father... It's too late to change 
things now. That's why... I'm here.
Lethe: Will you... shake my hand, Jill?
Jill: Wha...?
Lethe: I have heard of a huma... a beorc custom where the shaking and holding 
of hands shows friendship. ...I... understand you, now. I empathize with your 
choice and admire the strength it took to make it.
Jill: Lethe... Uh... Yes. Of course. Please, let us shake.
Lethe: If we listen to each other and are willing to compromise... I know the 
beorc and laguz can come to live with each other. I'm sure of it.

they are beasts of habit, but must they always wear so much armor? They

Stefan: You don't need to talk to me if you're afraid. Now that you know what 
I am, I make you uncomfortable, don't I?
Mordecai: I am unsure. A legend in Gallia speaks of the parentless. They are 
bad omens. When a parentless one comes into being, a century of destruction 
follows...
Stefan: Yes, that's it. The laguz do call us that. "Parentless," as if to deny 
our heritage. As if to deny that we are their kin. That's how the laguz treat 
us--as if we should never have been born. The beorc may tremble when they see 
the brands we bear, but at least they do not deny that we share blood. That is 
why so many of the Branded hate the laguz--because they have rejected our 
very existence.
Mordecai: But how? How is it that you came to be? Laguz and beorc are 
different. They cannot bear children. This is how Ashera has made our 
world... It is her law.
Stefan: I don't know. The laguz tribes cannot interbreed, I know that much. 
However, it seems possible, though rare, for a child to be born to beorc and 
laguz parents. But once the bloodlines have mingled, the trace of it can 
remain hidden for countless generations. Have I violated the goddess's laws? 
Have my parents? No. Whatever happened was done by some forgotten ancestor. 
My parents are beorc, as were their parents before them. I do not know who is 
responsible for what I am. But now, after many generations, their sin has 
appeared in me. I bear no guilt, but the badge of impurity is mine to wear.
Mordecai: ...
Stefan: My laguz blood gives me great power. I thought about using my power to 
gain revenge against the people who scorned me, but I decided against it. I 
have found friends, people who live outside the normal worlds of the beorc and 
the laguz. People who bear the brand.
Mordecai: What did you want from me, Stefan? Why did you ask about Gallia?
Stefan: I was curious about Gallia's beast tribes. They looked different than 
those that live in Begnion. There are those among the Branded who think that 
a country willing to join hands with beorc... Might find a place for us as 
well. We thought we might at least find acceptance in Gallia and Crimea... 
Of course, it didn't work out that way...
Mordecai: Stefan...
Stefan: Well, I guess that's the end of our little "friendship" now, isn't it? 
I intend to stick around until this war is over, but I won't bother you 
anymore. I know how you laguz are about us.
Mordecai: No! I will not pretend that you are not among us. I will not pretend 
that I do not see what is in front of me!
Stefan: What will you do, Mordecai? Am I so wretched to you that you feel you 
must take direct action against me? You laguz are closer to nature than the 
beorc. Are you going to enforce the goddess's law? Is that it?
Mordecai: I have not met the goddess. But if her laws make you unwanted, then 
I will have nothing to do with her. You have taught me much, and I would not 
like to lose your friendship.
Stefan: Hm. You'd want nothing to do with the goddess? Funny, but for the 
first time in my life, I'm grateful to her.
Mordecai: Why?
Stefan: If someone like you can be so sincere a friend, then perhaps she's not 
to blame. Perhaps her laws aren't what we think.

Mordecai: I have a question, Ulki.
Ulki: Yes? What is it?
Mordecai: The bird tribes fly the sky. How does it feel to fly?
Ulki: Huh... I never think about it. It's just something that I do.
Mordecai: Hrrrrmm... I see. It is for you like running is for me. I have never 
flown. I wanted to know if it was different.
Ulki: That's what I figured...
Mordecai: What kind of place is your home? Do you have to fly there?
Ulki: Well... Even if you were to arrive by ship, Phoenicis has no ports and 
no docks. We have no need for them. Without our help, it would be hard for you 
to visit Phoenicis.
Mordecai: I see... That is a shame.
Ulki: Do you want to come to Phoenicis?
Mordecai: I do indeed! I have met many beorc and laguz throughout this war. 
Our world is big, and I would see more of it.
Ulki: You would, huh?

Ulki: Mordecai...
Mordecai: Is something troubling you, Ulki?
Ulki: I want to ask you something.
Mordecai: Hm? What is it?
Ulki: I understand you beast tribes can see well even at night. With the 
exception of Janaff, my kind cannot see at all at night. Even with my eyes 
wide open, all I can see is the darkness.
Mordecai: In perfect darkness, I cannot see. If there is but a little light, 
however, I can see as clearly as in the day. I use the moonlight, as should 
you.
Ulki: I wish I could, but that is exactly what I mean. Your kind can see by 
moonlight, but the bird clans...
Mordecai: They cannot?
Ulki: I long to soar in the sky, looking down upon the moonlit world... I 
would love to see the forest at night. What do the trees look like as night 
falls? Why are there dewdrops on the leaves in the morning even when there's 
no rain? The forest at night has so many mysteries. What light can you shed on 
them?
Mordecai: During the day, the forest teems with life. It is very different 
from the night forest. But the night forest is also alive in its way.
Ulki: Is that so? I would love to see that, even once.

Mordecai: I have an idea, Ulki.
Ulki: What is it?
Mordecai: Janaff is your king's eyes. I will be yours. Carry me on your back. 
You will help me fly, and I will show you the night forest.
Ulki: ...No, you'd be too heavy. I can't carry you.
Mordecai: Hrrrm... I see. I am sorry to trouble you. I can see at night, and 
you can fly in the sky. I thought it was a good idea...
Ulki: ...
Mordecai: It was a foolish thought.
Ulki: No, it was very kind. Well, what if... Yes, suppose I grow stronger, and 
you, well, lost some weight... Then we could give your idea a try.
Mordecai: I will! Then, you can take me to Phoenicis, and I will see your 
home! I will do what you have asked! Except... I must lose some weight. I do 
not like that. I like to eat... No! It will be worth not eating! I will see 
Phoenicis!

Mordecai: Is that so? I am glad to help. Ike is a good beorc... strong and

Ranulf: Did you get a chance to know some of the other mercenaries?
Mordecai: Some. Grrr... I have a question, Ranulf. Do I speak well in this 
tongue? 
Ranulf: You're fine, Modecai. Sure, you have an accent, and you tend to growl 
a lot, but the beorc can understand.
Mordecai: These words are hard to me. As a cat, I need no hard words. One roar 
is enough for all the forest to understand.
Ranulf: That may be true, but the beorc can't begin to understand the nuance 
of our roars. We would only scare them.

Bastian: Twenty thousand.
Volke: Eh?
Bastian: I'll get you twenty thousand. But you'll have to attend to it right

Volke: That sounds... tasty. Unfortunately, I have a policy against taking two 
jobs at once. It will have to wait until this one is over.
Bastian: ...
Volke: Don't fret, Bastian. My contract with Ike will only last as long as 
this war, and it's already coming to an end. It's not clear yet who will win, 
but it's certainly coming to a head. When my plate is clean, I'll find you.
Bastian: This is absurd! You won't take the job?
Volke: Oh, I'll take it. I never pass up a lucrative offer. Plus, I've come to 
think you're not so bad,Bastian. You've always paid in full and on time. I 
like that in an employer.
Bastian: So I'm an excellent employer? Perhaps I should set you up with a

I marked you as my archrival! Don't pretend not to care!
Oscar: Uh... wow. I had no idea--
Kieran: But why!? I must know why you left the Crimean knighthood without a

even if it's as a mercenary. 
Kieran: I'm not here to make you glad! I'm here to convince you to be a knight

battle, returning in triumph to hear adulation from the people and praise 
from his lord! When you make your name as a knight, everyone knows you! The 
world is laid at your feet! And above all else, you can defend our beloved 
Crimea and her people with your own two hands!!

entering battles from which you never return! Why, Oscar? Why!? I just don't

than anyone. If you say you will come back, I'll do everything I can to 
recommend your honorable return to the knights!
Oscar: Heh. Thanks, Kieran. But I'm not returning. After joining the 
mercenaries, I had a chance to see the world. I saw grief with my own eyes. 
People subjugated by the powerful, losing everything and dying alone... 
Countries can't save people like that. It's up to men like us--men who are in 
the thick of the action--to aid those who cannot aid themselves. Besides, I 
have no use for honor. As long as I can defend the family called the Greil 
Mercenaries, I'm happy.
Kieran: Bla... Blast! You've outdone me again! How can this be? I don't know 
why or how, but... I feel you beat me yet again!
Oscar: You didn't lose. There are many things that a brave knight like 
yourself can do that we mercenaries cannot. So let's both do our best. We may 
stand on different sides of the field, but we aspire to the same ideal.
Kieran: I see... Then I will ask you no more!! Watch me! When Crimea is fully 
restored, my distinguished services will resonate throughout the ages! You'll 
hear about it wherever you are! I'll make sure of it!

your success!

on everyone anymore.
Boyd: Oh, stop it. Keep this up, and you could even be a royal guard after 
the war.
Brom: No thank you! I'm done fighting. When this war is over, I'm going back 
to farming.
Boyd: Listen, pops. Tell me the truth... How does we mercenaries seem to you? 
I mean, to farmers? Simple people.
Brom: What? I don't get you, Boyd.
Boyd: Well, the world is full of mercenaries, but most of them are just 
scoundrels who can't hold any other job, right? So when there's no war to 
fight, they wander then countryside without honest work. A lot of them end up 
stealing from villagers or just turn into common cutthroats.
Brom: Boyd, you're not--
Boyd: Nah, we're not like them. I know that. But... you can't tell that just 
by looking at us. I hear it when I walk through towns. "Careful! The 
mercenaries are back." "They're scrounging for money." It kinda hurts, you 
know? I mean, I don't care what you say about me, but when you talk bad about 
my family...
Brom: Well, Boyd. Here's what I think. Folks always judge, and they're usually 
wrong. That's just how they are, you know? You can't worry about it too much. 
But I like you. And I respect you, too. Shucks, everyone in this company has 
been just great! Anyway, that's what I think.
Boyd: Thanks, pops. That's... good to hear. All right! Back to the training! 
Let's go the extra mile this time!
Brom: Huh!? A-again? G-give me a second, Boyd! Phew! Huff...puff...

Nephenee: Mmm-hmm. It sure is!
Brom: I bet your hometown is real busy now, what with harvest season 
approaching and all.
Nephenee: Yeah, I bet. I'm sure my brothers and sisters are grumblin' at Ma 
for making them help in the fields.
Brom: Ho ho! All kids ever want to do is play. I should know! Say, how many 
people are in your family, Nephenee?
Nephenee: I have two younger sisters and three younger brothers. The boys are 
triplets. They just turned six years old.
Brom: That's too much for your mom to handle all on her own!
Nephenee: Yep, I'm sure Ma chews 'em out every day. What about you, Brom?
Brom: My kids are a little older. I hope they're helping Mother like they're

worked up!
Nephenee: It's a war. There ain't nothin' you can do. We just have to get used 
to it.
Brom: I guess you're right. You and I were strangers to war before.
Nephenee: I know. That's why I don't quite understand what passes for normal 
around here.
Brom: I tell ya, it sure was tough when I first volunteered! For one thing, we 
militiamen are nothing but a bunch of farmers and villagers. We had courage 
and determination to spare, but we sure lacked talent!
Nephenee: I know what ya mean, Brom! There weren't even enough gear for us! 
They gave me a bow and told me to share it with another gal. But neither of us 
knew how how to use it, anyhow.
Brom: Yup! I hear you well! The war broke out so suddenly, the only decent 
training we got was how to stand for roll call! Every time we marched, people 
got lost or strayed or fled. We were losing soldiers before we even saw the 
enemy. That's why I don't feel bad about being taken prisoner... But this army 
is real good compared to my last one!
Nephenee: Well, what did you expect? We're in a real army now. Horsefeathers! 
Where are those barracks?
Brom: Oh, enough walking! My feet hurt! And my back is sore. Let's just ask 
someone.
Nephenee: A-ask someone? Um... Fine. You do it!
Brom: What? What's wrong?
Nephenee: I... I'm not used to talkin' with city folk.

I'm Zihark. How do you do, Brom?
Brom: Howdy! Nice to meet you! Fixing a shoulder guard is tough work. What do 
you do when you're not at war? You work in leather?
Zihark: Nope. Just a swordsman.
Brom: Huh... I didn't know swordsmen could fix something like this. That's

Zihark: I taught myself. Mercenaries don't make good money, you know. I can't

Brom: Wow... Isn't that something? I have to teach my youngest son how to do 
that!
Zihark: How many children do you have, Brom?
Brom: I've got five sons and three daughters. In fact... my oldest girl is

Zihark: I can't let you do that, big guy. You invited me on short notice, and 
I didn't have any cash on me. But today I'm ready, so let me pay for my half.
Brom: Well, even if you want to, I don't even remember how much I paid.
Zihark: The total came to four fifty. I'll give you two and a quarter, and we 
can call it even.
Brom: Well, aren't you a fine young man! You've got a good memory, and you can 
do math!
Zihark: That's just my nature. Most mercenaries are basically lazy and 
sloppy... I think I drive them crazy.
Brom: Nah. That just makes you even more of a true man! I bet you're pretty 
popular with the young lasses, eh? Eh?!
Zihark: Um... not... really. It would take an... eccentric girl to love a guy 
like me.
Brom: I tell you, Zihark, sometimes I don't get this world. I mean, even a 
simpleton like me has a family!
Zihark: Ha! I'm telling you, Brom, you're a good man. Trust me on this one.
Brom: Oh, I have an idea! And it's a humdinger! You should marry my daughter!
Zihark: Um... Er... I should what?
Brom: I don't mean to sound like a proud poppa, but they're all great girls! 
And if I like you this much, I'm sure that my daughters will like you, too.

Brom: Stop giving me such halfhearted answers and start listening! I'm talking

Zihark: Brom, listen... I didn't tell you this the other day, but... I have no 
intentions of getting married now.
Brom: What? Aw, shucks! Why not?
Zihark: I had... I had an important girlfriend before. We couldn't be together

Brom: I see. That's a real shame...

Brom: Hmm... Then how about my second-oldest girl?! She's a little younger,

but don't let that worry you too much! She's a sweetheart, I tell ya! Why,

put...
Muarim: Something wrong?
Zihark: Oh, Muarim. No, not really. I just... I seem to have lost my sword 
powder.
Muarim: Sword powder?
Zihark: It's used to maintain swords. Swords rust quickly if you don't take 
care of them. A little powder, a little oil, and a little scrubbing does the 
trick.
Muarim: Does it come in a small bag attached to a stick?
Zihark: Yeah, that's it! Did you pick it up?
Muarim: No, but... I have seen it before. I did not know that was its name.
Zihark: Hm. Well, it doesn't look like I dropped it anywhere around here. 
Maybe I lost it when we were marching... Ah, well. Maybe Commander Ike will 
have some he can share.
Muarim: Being a beorc has its troubles, does it not?

Zihark: Unfortunately, no. I'll need to replace it, I think. I hate to keep 
borrowing from the others.
Muarim: Can you use this?
Zihark: What's this? Oh, wow... This sword powder looks expensive... You're a 
laguz. How did you come to have this?
Muarim: Force of habit.
Zihark: I don't follow you.
Muarim: I was once a slave. The nobleman who was my master made me sharpen his 
blades for him. I was quite adept at it. He would bring them to me 
unannounced. If I did not have the proper materials to sharpen his swords, he 
would beat me. I still do not feel comfortable unless I have these materials 
near me.
Zihark: I'm sorry to have brought up such a painful memory.
Muarim: It is the past now. Would you like me to sharpen your sword?
Zihark: Thank you, but a true swordsman takes care of his own blade. I 
appreciate your offer, though.
Muarim: Then at least take this powder. I no longer have any use for it.

gratitude, but... would you care to join me for dinner?

herb. It's fairly uncommon, but I've learned how to spot it.
Muarim: Um...
Zihark: I picked the wrong herb, didn't I?
Muarim: No, no... It's fine. Unfortunately, it is not something that we tigers 
have a nose for.
Zihark: Oh... I didn't know that. Sorry. An old girlfriend of mine loved the 
scent of it. I guess I just assumed that all laguz liked the smell as much as 
she did.
Muarim: You... were involved with a laguz?
Zihark: Yeah.
Muarim: That is very uncommon. I've heard stories of love affairs between 
beorc and laguz. It must have been difficult. I do not imagine either society 
would have accepted it with ease.
Zihark: It... was too much for her. We couldn't be married, and the pressure 
was too much for her to stay with me. But I've never loved another woman. To 
this day, I think that I never shall.
Muarim: Can I have that bundle of herbs?
Zihark: What? But I thought...
Muarim: It has no effect on me, it's true, but I accept the gesture of 
kindness you have shown in bringing it to me. And I apologize for bringing up 
a painful memory of your own.

Astrid: I had no idea... how cruel and unforgiving war would actually be. 
Grueling marches... day in and day out. I can't even sleep at night because 
I'm terrified of surprise attacks. It's made me painfully aware of my frailty.
Sothe: Nobles aren't cut out for war. As you can see, there are no

Astrid: My parents have already chosen and arranged a fiance for me. I've 
heard he is thirty years older than me.
Sothe: ...
Astrid: I volunteered for service with the knights of Begnion to live on my 
own terms. Of course, my family vehemently opposed the idea, but they figured 
it was merely a phase. They thought I would come home crying. I won't give

Astrid: No, you deserve thanks. I feel better.
Sothe: I thought you noble types were too good to thank anyone, but... You're 
different...
Astrid: Am I?
Sothe: You are. Most nobles get rich by trampling on the commoners, then spend 
their lives basking in filthy luxury. I've known them to be that way since the 
day I was born. They've never seen a blister or sweat for a day's meal in 
their lives. Do you know how lucky you are?
Astrid: But there's no freedom! My brothers are the pride of the house. As 
soldiers, they lead glorious lives. But my sisters are traded like 
commodities, promised to fiances they don't even know. They don't know love. I 
receive letters from them once every few years. The pages are warped and 
stained from tears.
Sothe: You didn't want to end up like them.
Astrid: No, I didn't. That's why I have no intention of leaving this war until 
I see it to the end.
Sothe: I see... You're nothing like the nobles I've known. You worked hard... 
You're just like the rest of us. Sorry for thinking you were just another 
pampered noble.
Astrid: Thank you...

that away!

Jill: I've been thinking about things, and I haven't been able to figure 
out... See, in Daein we were taught that you attack humans indiscriminately 
and without mercy. That you are just savage animals.
Lethe: Laguz attacking humans? Grrrrawl! What garbage! We dislike even the 
company of humans and want nothing to do with them. Even mauling you would 
be... unpleasant.
Jill: But in Daein, everyone believes that to be the truth! That's why... 
That's why I never questioned it. But when I saw you fight beside Ike and 
other humans on the South Sea, I knew that something was wrong. You were so 
different from what I imagined! Ever since I was young, they filled my head 
with tales of your terrible claws and teeth... But you stand on two legs. And 
you talk... You even make jokes! ...Sometimes... You're much closer to us than 
a beast!
Lethe: So glad to hear it.
Jill: I wonder why humans and sub-humans started fighting in the first place? 
Maybe we're just destined for war.
Lethe: Well, I don't know much about that. It's not for me to say if the 
goddess made us a certain way or if we're just two races that don't like each 
other very much. But I know that Gallia, Phoenicis, and Kilvas all have a 
reason to hate humans.
Jill: W-what reason?
Lethe: ...Are you serious? I take it humans aren't interested in passing 
history down to their children... ...Typical. All right... Centuries ago, when 
Begnion was still a monarchy, the only countries were Begnion and Goldoa. 
Goldoa was as it is today: a reclusive nation inhabited only by dragon tribes. 
All the other laguz lived in Begnion with the humans.
Jill: Humans and sub-humans used to live together in Begnion?! I had no idea...
Lethe: A human was named as the first king, although the laguz's superior 
strength led us to rule more often than not. Despite the harmony that most 
felt about this arrangement, the senators wanted nothing to do with it. In the 
name of the "apostle," they claimed that only a human could be the true ruler 
of Begnion... and started a civil war. Like blind, mewling kittens, the laguz 
kings underestimated the situation... We never had a chance. Caught by 
surprise, my brothers suffered defeat after defeat in the face of superior 
human weapons and magic. ...That was the start of long, dark days... The start 
of laguz slavery.
Jill: ...
Lethe: After nearly 200 years, a small number of enslaved laguz managed to 
escape their human captors in Begnion. The beast tribe fled to the mountains 
and unexplored forest areas--places where humans were loathe to tread. The 
bird tribes, on the other hand, escaped to the distant southern islands. This 
is how our laguz kingdoms began. It took another eighty years, and the blood 
of many brother laguz, until we were formally recognized as nations. This is 
why we fight. Why we hate. Humans don't want former slaves to have countries 
and be treated as equals. Laguz carry the shame of the past deep in their 
hearts, and struggle still for the freedom that you take for granted. This is 
the true history of Tellius... No wonder humans would bury it.
Jill: I don't know wh--
Lethe: What to say? Idiot! Think! Think about what I have said. Think about 
what you have seen with your eyes and heard with your ears. If you don't even

the mercenaries... Had I not known about you laguz... I'm sure I would be with 
Daein even now. Taking pride in my work as a Daein soldier and offering my life 
for Ashnard. I wouldn't have hesitated to smite you all. But now I have 
learned the truth...
Lethe: ...And?
Jill: This isn't like the time I chased your ship from Port Toha, hoping to 
win fame and approval from my father. When I joined you, I acted on my own 
accord. For the first time. I chose what I thought was a righteous path. Even 
if my decision forced me to face my own father... It's too late to change 
things now. That's why... I'm here.
Lethe: Will you... shake my hand, Jill?
Jill: Wha...?
Lethe: I have heard of a huma... a beorc custom where the shaking and holding 
of hands shows friendship. ...I... understand you, now. I empathize with your 
choice and admire the strength it took to make it.
Jill: Lethe... Uh... Yes. Of course. Please, let us shake.

launch an attack from behind my impenetrable frame. Archers wait safely behind

boyfriend?
Astrid: A boyfriend?
Gatrie: That's right! Oh, don't worry! I don't happen to have a girlfriend. 
You know... for the moment.

Wait... She said she had a fiance, didn't she? Going out of her way to tell me

That's it! She should have just said so! Wait for me, Astrid!

Astrid: Ahhh... splendid. May I speak to you for a moment?
Sothe: What do you want?
Astrid: You are quite skilled with a dagger. If my memory serves, swords are 
very effective against axes. But, can you tell me which weapon axes are most 
suited to attack?
Sothe: Hah! You don't even know that? I thought you were a mercenary!

Sothe: I know it's not my worry, but aren't you pushing yourself a bit hard? 
You're having a rough time just keeping up with the pack. You're a wreck!
Astrid: I had no idea... how cruel and unforgiving war would actually be. 
Grueling marches... day in and day out. I can't even sleep at night because 
I'm terrified of surprise attacks. It's made me painfully aware of my frailty.
Sothe: Nobles aren't cut out for war. As you can see, there are no 
chambermaids to attend to your every whim out here! I'm sure you've got a 
lavish and free life waiting for you back home.

freedom.
Sothe: No freedom? What are you talking about?
Astrid: My parents have already chosen and arranged a fiance for me. I've 
heard he is thirty years older than me.
Sothe: ...
Astrid: I volunteered for service with the knights of Begnion to live on my 
own terms. Of course, my family vehemently opposed the idea, but they figured 
it was merely a phase. They thought I would come home crying. I won't give

Astrid: No, you deserve thanks. I feel better.
Sothe: I thought you noble types were too good to thank anyone, but... You're 
different...
Astrid: Am I?
Sothe: You are. Most nobles get rich by trampling on the commoners, then spend 
their lives basking in filthy luxury. I've known them to be that way since the 
day I was born. They've never seen a blister or sweat for a day's meal in 
their lives. Do you know how lucky you are?
Astrid: But there's no freedom! My brothers are the pride of the house. As 
soldiers, they lead glorious lives. But my sisters are traded like 
commodities, promised to fiances they don't even know. They don't know love. I 
receive letters from them once every few years. The pages are warped and 
stained from tears.
Sothe: You didn't want to end up like them.
Astrid: No, I didn't. That's why I have no intention of leaving this war until 
I see it to the end.
Sothe: I see... You're nothing like the nobles I've known. You worked hard... 
You're just like the rest of us. Sorry for thinking you were just another 
pampered noble.
Astrid: Thank you...
Sothe: Keep up the good work. You've earned your freedom. Never let them take 
that away!
Astrid: I won't!

I should give it back before she hits me on the head with her big lance 
again.
Astrid: I see.
Makalov: You're quite luck, you know. You can give away an expensive pendant 
like other people give away a sandwich! My sister doesn't even have a cheap

only favors the aristocracy.
Astrid: I'm... I'm sorry...
Makalov: Hey, I wasn't asking for you to apologize.
Astrid: My pendant was really worth that much? I... I only wore it because 
my beloved grandmother gave it to me when I was just a girl. I had no

Makalov: Whoa! It's a memento!? Why the heck did you give me something so 
important?
Astrid: That pendant is just an object. Memories of my grandmother always

would do more good if I gave it to someone in need.

Mordecai: Laguz... hate you? Because you are... branded? Stefan, your 
words confuse me.

-A Support-

Mordecai: Stefan...
Stefan: Have you found your answer?
Mordecai: You are one of the Branded. You are the child of beorc and laguz.
Stefan: I believe so, at least. My proof is this mark upon my forehead.
Mordecai: ...
Stefan: You don't need to talk to me if you're afraid. Now that you know what 
I am, I make you uncomfortable, don't I?
Mordecai: I am unsure. A legend in Gallia speaks of the parentless. They are 
bad omens. When a parentless one comes into being, a century of destruction 
follows...
Stefan: Yes, that's it. The laguz do call us that. "Parentless," as if to deny 
our heritage. As if to deny that we are their kin. That's how the laguz treat 
us--as if we should never have been born. The beorc may tremble when they see 
the brands we bear, but at least they do not deny that we share blood. That is 
why so many of the Branded hate the laguz--because they have rejected our 
very existence.
Mordecai: But how? How is it that you came to be? Laguz and beorc are 
different. They cannot bear children. This is how Ashera has made our 
world... It is her law.
Stefan: I don't know. The laguz tribes cannot interbreed, I know that much. 
However, it seems possible, though rare, for a child to be born to beorc and 
laguz parents. But once the bloodlines have mingled, the trace of it can 
remain hidden for countless generations. Have I violated the goddess's laws? 
Have my parents? No. Whatever happened was done by some forgotten ancestor. 
My parents are beorc, as were their parents before them. I do not know who is 
responsible for what I am. But now, after many generations, their sin has 
appeared in me. I bear no guilt, but the badge of impurity is mine to wear.
Mordecai: ...
Stefan: My laguz blood gives me great power. I thought about using my power to 
gain revenge against the people who scorned me, but I decided against it. I 
have found friends, people who live outside the normal worlds of the beorc and 
the laguz. People who bear the brand.
Mordecai: What did you want from me, Stefan? Why did you ask about Gallia?
Stefan: I was curious about Gallia's beast tribes. They looked different than 
those that live in Begnion. There are those among the Branded who think that 
a country willing to join hands with beorc... Might find a place for us as 
well. We thought we might at least find acceptance in Gallia and Crimea... 
Of course, it didn't work out that way...
Mordecai: Stefan...
Stefan: Well, I guess that's the end of our little "friendship" now, isn't it? 
I intend to stick around until this war is over, but I won't bother you 
anymore. I know how you laguz are about us.
Mordecai: No! I will not pretend that you are not among us. I will not pretend 
that I do not see what is in front of me!
Stefan: What will you do, Mordecai? Am I so wretched to you that you feel you 
must take direct action against me? You laguz are closer to nature than the 
beorc. Are you going to enforce the goddess's law? Is that it?
Mordecai: I have not met the goddess. But if her laws make you unwanted, then 
I will have nothing to do with her. You have taught me much, and I would not 
like to lose your friendship.
Stefan: Hm. You'd want nothing to do with the goddess? Funny, but for the 
first time in my life, I'm grateful to her.
Mordecai: Why?
Stefan: If someone like you can be so sincere a friend, then perhaps she's not 
to blame. Perhaps her laws aren't what we think.

Tormod: Why? I don't get it.
Reyson: It was Serenes Forest. For my people, there is no more sacred a place. 
And the galdr I chanted was a part of an ancient clan ritual performed on a 
very holy altar. Most importantly, my seid magic succeeded because Leanne was 
by my side. That galdr holds little force when I chant it alone.
Tormod: Then all we need is Leanne!
Reyson: You're not very quick, are you? Even if both of us chanted the galdr 
until we collapsed from exhaustion, there's no way we could turn sand into 
soil. Even if the desert was a fertile valley eons ago, I don't have the power 
to restore it. Have I made myself clear?
Tormod: Hmmpph...
Reyson: What need do you have for such magic? Ike has told me that you are 
now under the protection of the apostle.
Tormod: The apostle said she would do something about the slavery of the 
laguz. But the laguz still live among the beorc. It's bound to cause hard 
feelings. Think about it. Even if the apostle frees the laguz, the average 
beorc will still loathe them. I just don't want to see my friends live 
under a cloud of hatred, fearing for their lives.
Reyson: Beorc and laguz living in harmony? It's hard to imagine that.
Tormod: That's why I wanted you to do something about the desert. If I could 
build a village for the laguz there, they'd be able to get a fresh start.
Reyson: This may be a long way off, but if Serenes Forest returns to our 
control, would you like to come live with us there?
Tormod: Are you sure!?
Reyson: Of course.
Tormod: This is... unbelievable news! Everyone will be ecstatic!
Reyson: You should know that hunting animals for food is forbidden in the 
sacred forest.
Tormod: It is? Then how will we eat?
Reyson: Fresh stream water is plentiful, and there are more than enough nuts 
and berries.
Tormod: But many of my laguz friends are from the great beast tribes--they eat 
meat!
Reyson: They'll have to get used to it.
Tormod: I will talk to everyone. But they might decide the desert is fine with 
them. They do love eating meat!

put...
Muarim: Something wrong?
Zihark: Oh, Muarim. No, not really. I just... I seem to have lost my sword 
powder.
Muarim: Sword powder?
Zihark: It's used to maintain swords. Swords rust quickly if you don't take 
care of them. A little powder, a little oil, and a little scrubbing does the 
trick.
Muarim: Does it come in a small bag attached to a stick?
Zihark: Yeah, that's it! Did you pick it up?
Muarim: No, but... I have seen it before. I did not know that was its name.
Zihark: Hm. Well, it doesn't look like I dropped it anywhere around here. 
Maybe I lost it when we were marching... Ah, well. Maybe Commander Ike will 
have some he can share.
Muarim: Being a beorc has its troubles, does it not?

Muarim: Can you use this?
Zihark: What's this? Oh, wow... This sword powder looks expensive... You're a 
laguz. How did you come to have this?
Muarim: Force of habit.
Zihark: I don't follow you.
Muarim: I was once a slave. The nobleman who was my master made me sharpen his 
blades for him. I was quite adept at it. He would bring them to me 
unannounced. If I did not have the proper materials to sharpen his swords, he 
would beat me. I still do not feel comfortable unless I have these materials 
near me.
Zihark: I'm sorry to have brought up such a painful memory.
Muarim: It is the past now. Would you like me to sharpen your sword?
Zihark: Thank you, but a true swordsman takes care of his own blade. I 
appreciate your offer, though.
Muarim: Then at least take this powder. I no longer have any use for it.

herb. It's fairly uncommon, but I've learned how to spot it.
Muarim: Um...
Zihark: I picked the wrong herb, didn't I?
Muarim: No, no... It's fine. Unfortunately, it is not something that we tigers 
have a nose for.
Zihark: Oh... I didn't know that. Sorry. An old girlfriend of mine loved the 
scent of it. I guess I just assumed that all laguz liked the smell as much as 
she did.
Muarim: You... were involved with a laguz?
Zihark: Yeah.
Muarim: That is very uncommon. I've heard stories of love affairs between 
beorc and laguz. It must have been difficult. I do not imagine either society 
would have accepted it with ease.
Zihark: It... was too much for her. We couldn't be married, and the pressure 
was too much for her to stay with me. But I've never loved another woman. To 
this day, I think that I never shall.
Muarim: Can I have that bundle of herbs?
Zihark: What? But I thought...
Muarim: It has no effect on me, it's true, but I accept the gesture of 
kindness you have shown in bringing it to me. And I apologize for bringing up 
a painful memory of your own.

Largo: The heaviest thing I ever lifted was this tree I cut down. It was three

stacked on my back was that big smoked ham, but then you picked up that girl! 
What was her name again?
Muarim: Mist.
Largo: Yeah, that's her. We could have settled the competition if we had 
known which was heavier. Huh! I still think it was the ham...
Muarim: You were quite amazing.
Largo: Amazing? Me? Naw, not Largo! You were the incredible one!
Muarim: I'm not talking about how many hams you lifted. You were able to draw 
everyone together. It gave them a laugh, despite the stress of battle. 
Everyone had a chance to relax and blow off some steam.
Largo: Well, everyone deserves a good belly laugh! Bwaaaaa haa haa haaaaaa!!
Muarim: You also treat me and everyone else the same. You are a good beorc.

Ike: I just came to see how things are going. How are you doing?
Reyson: Fine. No problems.
Ike: No problems? Your face tells me otherwise.
Reyson: Well... we herons are optimistic by nature. So it's hard for me to be 
on a battlefield where the air is thick with negative energy. It's... tiring. 
But I'm learning to adjust. I hope you'll let me fight beside you to the 
bitter end.
Ike: As long as you take care of yourself, I have no complaints. But isn't 
there anything I can do to help? Maybe we could have a special supper. 
Certain foods tend to restore energy.
Reyson: That's very kind, but my diet... Heh. It's fairly limited. You know, 
I used to be disgusted by my thin, frail body. So one time I performed a 
little experiment. I got all the goods that Tibarn likes--raw meat, cold 
fish, insects--and ate them. I ate them all.
Ike: That doesn't sound good. What happened?
Reyson: I stared death in the face for ten days. You've never seen a laguz so 
green! I guess we herons are just meant to eat fruits and nuts for our entire

Reyson: I wanted so much to be like Tibarn. Big body, strong wings... With 
those features, I felt I could march into Begnion and revenge my brothers all 
by myself. I got on my knees and prayed to the goddess every night. Asking 
her for power... But to no avail.

Reyson: Saying so is an insult. I choose to be here.

I tried to get to know you. I even followed you around the battlefield.
Ulki: I see.
Boyd: Look, beorc can be a bunch of jerks. I don't blame you for checking me 
out. Heck, I know what we did to your people. But now it's gotta stop. Now 
that you know I'm clean, you have to stop putting up walls. We'll never 
understand each other if you're like that. So tell me straight, yes or no? Are 
we friends or what, Ulki?
Ulki: Yes. I'm sorry, Boyd. If you can forgive me, I want to be your friend.

the very beginning!

turn into a hawk before... It was amazing! I envy you!
Ulki: Mrrr?
Rhys: Oh, sorry... That probably sounds weird. I've always been sickly. When I 
was little, I spent a lot of time in bed. So... I used to gaze out the window 
and see all the little birds flying around the sky... It must be fantastic! 
Flying wherever you want, whenever you want?!
Ulki: Um... Fantastic. Yes. I suppose. I never thought of it.
Rhys: Oh, I don't blame you! After all, you've been flying since you were 
born... Soaring through the skies like a puffy cloud!
Ulki: Mmm? Clouds do not soar... I am confused.

Rhys: And right after that, you circled many times and then dived at that 
soldier... BLAM!! Hee hee! Oh, you're something else!
Ulki: Well... I suppose...
Rhys: Oh, how I wish I could soar through the air like that!
Ulki: Er, yes. You mentioned that.
Rhys: On sunny days, I'd take to the skies and land on a high mountain peak, 
then gaze down on the villages below... Oh, just thinking about it makes me so 
happy! Ahhhhhh... Aaaaaaaaaahhhhhh...
Ulki: Er... yes. I suppose... Flying could also help you take care of injured 
people.

with you just one more time? Please? Pleeeeease?
Ulki: Er... No. I can't use up any more energy before battle...
Rhys: Oh, I see... I apologize... Yes, very sorry... Um... Say... Does 
shifting tire you?
Ulki: Yes.
Rhys: What!? Oh no! But... You let me practice with you! For days! Yesterday 
we flew for nine hours!
Ulki: Well... It was my fault for not saying anything. You looked so happy 
that... I didn't have a chance to bring it up.
Rhys: You know what? I think you're pale... And your eyes are all bloodshot... 
... I'm sorry... Let's just forget it...

Mordecai: Hrrrrmm... I see. It is for you like running is for me. I have never 
flown. I wanted to know if it was different.
Ulki: That's what I figured...
Mordecai: What kind of place is your home? Do you have to fly there?
Ulki: Well... Even if you were to arrive by ship, Phoenicis has no ports and 
no docks. We have no need for them. Without our help, it would be hard for you 
to visit Phoenicis.
Mordecai: I see... That is a shame.
Ulki: Do you want to come to Phoenicis?

Ulki: I understand you beast tribes can see well even at night. With the 
exception of Janaff, my kind cannot see at all at night. Even with my eyes 
wide open, all I can see is the darkness.
Mordecai: In perfect darkness, I cannot see. If there is but a little light, 
however, I can see as clearly as in the day. I use the moonlight, as should 
you.
Ulki: I wish I could, but that is exactly what I mean. Your kind can see by 
moonlight, but the bird clans...
Mordecai: They cannot?
Ulki: I long to soar in the sky, looking down upon the moonlit world... I 
would love to see the forest at night. What do the trees look like as night 
falls? Why are there dewdrops on the leaves in the morning even when there's 
no rain? The forest at night has so many mysteries. What light can you shed on 
them?
Mordecai: During the day, the forest teems with life. It is very different 
from the night forest. But the night forest is also alive in its way.
Ulki: Is that so? I would love to see that, even once.

Mordecai: I have an idea, Ulki.

Ulki: ...No, you'd be too heavy. I can't carry you.
Mordecai: Hrrrm... I see. I am sorry to trouble you. I can see at night, and 
you can fly in the sky. I thought it was a good idea...
Ulki: ...
Mordecai: It was a foolish thought.
Ulki: No, it was very kind. Well, what if... Yes, suppose I grow stronger, and 
you, well, lost some weight... Then we could give your idea a try.
Mordecai: I will! Then, you can take me to Phoenicis, and I will see your 
home! I will do what you have asked! Except... I must lose some weight. I do 
not like that. I like to eat... No! It will be worth not eating! I will see

Shinon: Why did you join Ike's army if you feel that way? Did the king order 
it?
Janaff: No. The relationship with our king is not one-sided like that. If we 
do not deem the king's orders to be right and just, we will not obey them.
Shinon: Then why did you join?
Janaff: Commander Ike saved one of my friends in Serenes. Though my first duty

seen many countries with my own eyes, but Phoenicis is the best!
Lucia: Did Phoenicis have diplomatic relations with other countries?
Janaff: No, we donít associate with the others. We used to be allied with 
Serenes... until those cursed humans destroyed it. And Kilvas is ruled by a 
cunning and heartless king. We have no trust for him.
Lucia: Did you ever associate with beorc countries?
Janaff: Ha! Thatíll never happen! After the slaughter of Serenes, the beorc 
became our enemy.

to establish diplomatic relations with you. Our late king advocated 
friendship with the laguz, and enjoyed a good rapport with King Caineghis of

their entire lives without outside contact... But I suppose a friendship 
with Crimea is possible. If our king so decides.

the word made me angry. But... Now I think friendship is possible. Thatís 
all because I met you.
Lucia: Oh... Well... Thank you. I am glad to be of assistance.

Lucia: In Crimea, we dream of peace for all people. Friendship that 
transcends nation, creed, and race. Beorc and laguz, living in harmony.
Janaff: Transcending race, huh? Crimea is an odd country. I heard you even 
let laguz live within your borders!
Lucia: Yes, due to our bond with King Caineghis. And now, Prince Elincia 
hopes to establish such alliances with other laguz nations.
Janaff: Itís a pretty thought. But do you think that a friendship which 
transcends nation, creed, and race will come so easily?
Lucia: It will not be easy, but it can beó
Janaff: For example. You know that Phoenicis and Begnion used to be bitter 
enemies, right?
Lucia: Yes, I know.
Janaff: The apostle finally recognized the Serenes massacre, but who knows 
how long itíll take that news to spread over the country? Before that 
happens, there could be more fighting. War might erupt anew. If so, whose 
side will you choose?
Lucia: I wouldó
Janaff: Itíll be Begnion. Come on! Am I wrong? And in the eyes of Phoenicis, 
Crimea is nothing more that a Begnion colony. Which means Iíll fight against 
you.
Lucia: Princess Elincia would do everything in her power to avoid such a war. 
However, I am her loyal vassal. In the event of conflict, my path is clear.
Janaff: Same here. The kingís ally is my ally. And the kingís enemy... But if 
I can help it, Iíd rather not fight a good-looking woman like you! Dinner 
would be much more enjoyable.
Lucia: I agree, Janaff. When this war is over and Crimea rebuilt... letís 
meet again. Not as enemies, but as friends.

Oscar: Tanith, I must say, the charge you lead the other day was spectacular.
Tanith: We are knights of Begnion, after all. Anything less than a direct

Oscar: Iíd heard stories of your bravery before, but to see you in action was 
incredible! To see so many pegasus knights swooping onto the battlefield at

Tanith: You over-romanticize us. 
Oscar: Oh, no milady. It was a sight to behold. But, and do not take offense 
to this, might I share an observation with you? It strikes me that your 
strategy works only if you have superior numbers.
Tanith: Admittedly, in most battles, Begnion has the advantage of numbers. I 
canít recommend this tactic in our current campaign. I agree. Our army is 
constantly undermanned. Sometimes, itís a struggle just to get the basic 
necessities! It goes without saying that weíll never have access to all the 
resources that Begnion enjoys. Well, you seem to understand how to fight well 
enough with few numbers. Tell me, what would you do?
Oscar: We take advantage of our individual soldiersí strengths. Where you 
would overwhelm your foes with numbers, we cannot risk the losses. We cannot 
afford to lose a single soldier, even if his sacrifice brings us victory. 
After all, we might win a battle that way, but we will not be able to last out 
the war. Do not let honor drag you into a duel you cannot win. Dishonor is 
better than death if withdrawing means you live to fight again.
Tanith: Retreating from a fight is not an easy thing to do, but I must admit, 
your words make sense given our numbers.
Oscar: And I would hate to lose your strength to preserve something as 
intangible as honor.
Tanith: But you know, the pegasus knights can be stubborn. Iím not sure even 
I can convince them to change their tactics.
Oscar: Then Iíll help you convince them. Maybe my experiences will be all the

more here than I did at the academy! Why, Iím starting to wish that I could 
take you back to Begnion with me, so that we could all benefit from your 
wisdom.
Oscar: Thatís kind of you to say, milady.
Tanith: By the way... you cook?
Oscar: Yes, milady. As Iíve said, weíre a small company. Each of us handles a

Marcia: Well, if you must know... My brother went missing after he accrued a 
massive debt.
Tanith: Debt?
Marcia: Yes. Men began coming to my barracks to collect their money instead 
of hunting down my brother. That's why I went to find him. I met Ike and his 
company during my search, and I joined after they saved me from a vicious band 
of boat monkeys. But I still didn't find my brother.
Tanith: ...
Marcia: I figured that if I travelled with Ike, I'd eventually find my

been an iron rule. I cannot make a special exception for you.
Marcia: Deputy Commander... Why do you have to be so mean?!
Tanith: Why am I mean!? Because you deserted, I had to--
Marcia: You were always like that. Unlike Commander Sigrun, you never once 
commended our unit.  You think you understand us, but you don't.  You're 
just heartless and frigid.
Tanith: Don't you get it?  Why do you think I'm coming down on you so hard!?
Marcia: Excuse me?
Tanith: I wouldn't normally say this, but...I had high expectations for you, 
Marcia. I thought you could take the reins and someday lead the Holy Guard.
Marcia: What!?  Where did that come from?  Back in Begnion, you said nothing 
about any of this.
Tanith: Do you think I would say something like that on my own?  I have no 
choice now. I'll offer counsel to the commander, and see to it that you 
have a place back on the Guard. If you come back, I might just forget all 
about your desertion.
Marcia: Deputy Commander... I... I appreciate it!

Nephenee: ...?
Calill: Why is a pretty girl like you covering her face with an unfashionable 
helmet like that? The world should see your beauty! It's a travesty, I tell

Nephenee: Well, I ain't really... a makeup kind of gal.
Calill: ...Ain't? Where are you from, missy?
Nephenee: I'm from... around.
Calill: Such an unsociable girl! Well, you can't fool Calill! I know why 
you're not much of a talker. You're embarrassed about your country accent and 
low speech, are you not?
Nephenee: H-how do you...
Calill: How do I know that? Well, I used to have a... friend with the same

Nephenee: You? But you're from the city! And you're so--
Calill: Elegant? Yes, indeed. Quite so. Oh, but I have an absolutely splendid

Nephenee: Aw, that's all right. Everyone'll stare if I take it off.
Calill: Why, my dear missy! Are you finally starting to believe in your own

Nephenee: Oh, I ain't--

Calill: Yes, it seems like a burden to always worry about how others see you. 
But I'll tell you a secret... People in the city are cold! They don't care 
about anyone but themselves!
Nephenee: Not you, Calill! You're kind.
Calill: Me? Oh. Hm... I guess I am. Well, perhaps not everyone from the city

Nephenee: Oh, they're swell! We use the oil on the shell to treat insect

Nephenee: Well, sure but... Oh, be careful, Calill! The shell is real sticky! 
Don't touch it with your bare hands.
Calill: Ah, I see. But perhaps if I hold the top and bottom edges of the shell

Nephenee: W-what? How did you...?
Calill: Mmm... Delicious!
Nephenee: ...You're not from the city at all!

your man is coming! 

-A Support- 

Calill: Ah! I see!
Geoffrey: So thatís why her existence was never made public. Instead, she was 
taken to the royal villa and raised in secret.
Calill: Itís a rather complicated story for a... commoner like me to 
understand. To grow up like that... Hidden from the eyes of the world.
Geoffrey: I donít think the princess minded. She grew up with the love of 
her parents and Lord Renning. She didnít have to inherit the throne. She 
lived happy and free, like a country aristocrat. 
Calill: She would probably still be happy if it werenít for that Daein 
attack!
Geoffrey: ...
Calill: Oh, Iím sorry, Sir Geoffrey. I was careless with my words.
Geoffrey: No, you speak the truth.
Calill: I think your earlier story was even more fascinating, though! I 
canít believe that you are the son of Elinciaís foster mother and have 
known Her Highness since childhood.
Geoffrey: Those early days were the best of my life. Crimea was at peace, 
and the whole land was filled with such beauty. The princess was 
especially beautiful... I remember chasing her and my sister, Lucia, around 
the villa... But alas! She is above my station! I can never have her, and 
yet... I cannot forget the past.
Calill: Shush! You canít wallow in your own memories like that! You have to 
live in the here and now! Itís true that times are hard. We spend every day 
fighting, covered in sweat and blood... But there is always hope! You must 
find what...pleasures you can whenever possible.
Geoffrey: Calill. You are right. I must not lose hope. I regret my outburst.
Calill: Oh, thatís all right. Actually, I prefer a man whoís a couple links 
short of a full chain. Makes him more interesting.
Geoffrey: Thank you. For now, I will devote myself to rebuilding Crimea. 
Though I think fondly on the princess, I know that our time together will 
never be as it once was. To serve her for life and watch her happiness from 
a distance... I can live with that.
Calill: Or you could just elope! Kidding! Iím kidding. Besides, youíre too 
straightlaced for that. I know you. Itís a shame. The two of you would make a 
nice couple. 
Geoffrey: ...Youíre a good person, Miss Calill.
Calill: Oh, I know it! You canít just find a smart, attractive woman like 
this on every corner, you know?
Geoffrey: You are indeed a gem among stones.
Calill: Oh, no! Donít try to sweet talk me now! Itís far too late for such 
flattery! I know how you feel about the princess. I wouldnít want to compete.
Geoffrey: Mmm... Thatís unfortunate. 
Calill: Ha ha ha! Well, at least we became good friends. Expose your heart to 
me without fear, brave Sir Geoffrey! Iíll stand by you to the end.

young age and was assigned to the palace guard. However...
Rolf: What happened?

wounds. Heíll never walk again.
Rolf: Oh, no...
Tauroneo: My wife nearly lost her mind. She cried day and night, swearing that 
she couldnít live if something like that were to ever happen again. She wanted 
to live in peace... with her mind at ease. She pleaded with me to leave the 
army. But I couldnít accept her plea. Our family house was built on 
generations of proud military command. Our ancient name as a warrior family 
would not allow me to simply abandon my sworn duty. I tried to salvage our 
honor by training my younger son. He was just a boy, really. I wanted him to 
become a Daein general.
Rolf: You did what?!
Tauroneo: I know... I was a fool. I was blinded by tradition and family 
reputation. By the time I realized my error, my wife and children had left me. 
Since then... Iíve been living alone in my great mansion, surrounded by

Rolf: Then why donít you go see her!

of butter on every table!
Tauroneo: That's a great dream. Where are you going to open your place?
Largo: Well, uh... it may not look like it, but I'm actually from Begnion. So 
I'll probably open my pub back home. But from what I hear, Crimea and Daein 
are nice places, too... This is going to be a hard choice...
Tauroneo: ...Do you want me to help you with the pub?

Down And Get Yourself A Meat Pie Pub"!
Tauroneo: That's a little long.
Largo: No good, eh? Nuts. What am I gonna do? I'm no good at thinking up 
stuff like this.
Tauroneo: Maybe you're thinking too hard. How about naming it after something 
you think is important?
Largo: Hey, yeah! I'll call it "Calill." She's always been my favorite.
Tauroneo: Naming it after an old flame, eh? I say go with that. I'll be sure 
to drop in for a pie and a brew when you open your place.

Ranulf: Hey, Lethe, about what we discussed the other day? Plans are in the 
works to bring some unit commanders back to Gallia. It's not a done deal, 
but... I may be able to put in a word if you want to be transferred back to 
Gallia.
Lethe: Back to... No. I will stay here.
Ranulf: Stay here? Are you sure?
Lethe: ...Er... I wouldn't want something gruesome to happen to the humans 
as soon as I left. I think I'll stay behind.
Ranulf: Heh...
Lethe: What?! What's with that smirk?! You have something to say?!
Ranulf: Oh, nothing. It's just that... when you used to say "human," you'd 
curl your lip in disgust.
Lethe: Well, they are disgusting! I can't stand them...
Ranulf: Hah! You always thrash your tail when you lie! It's a dead giveaway. 
Don't worry. I understand why you want to stay.
Lethe: ...I have to get back to my training. I have to chew some straw out of 
a target dummy.
Ranulf: Whew! Must have hit a nerve.
Lethe: ...Ranulf?
Ranulf: Yeeeees?
Lethe: I admit it. My feelings have changed.
Ranulf: They have, huh?
Lethe: I once thought your opinion about humans was weak and disgraceful... 
But now I see your viewpoint. They are strong allies. They fight by our side. 
That's why I'll stay with Ike.
Ranulf: I see... Well then, we'll be here to party with Ike and his ragtag 
mercenary crew when they win this war!
Lethe: We can't let our guard down yet. But... you're right. I hope to 
celebrate with them one day.

Mordecai: Ranulf! It's been a while.
Ranulf: Yes, it has. Thanks for all your work. I heard about how fiercely 
you've fought alongside these mercenaries.
Mordecai: Is that so? I am glad to help. Ike is a good beorc... strong and 
loyal. He is worth fighting for.
Ranulf: Did you get a chance to know some of the other mercenaries?
Mordecai: Some. Grrr... I have a question, Ranulf. Do I speak well in this 
tongue? 
Ranulf: You're fine, Modecai. Sure, you have an accent, and you tend to growl 
a lot, but the beorc can understand.
Mordecai: These words are hard to me. As a cat, I need no hard words. One roar 
is enough for all the forest to understand.
Ranulf: That may be true, but the beorc can't begin to understand the nuance 
of our roars. We would only scare them.
Mordecai: Yes. You are right. There are good beorcs here. Scaring them would

your country has granted us. Will you accept it?

Janaff: ...I mean, um... Thanks for your courtesy. Iím Janaff. I am here at

thank our king.

such luxuries are not feasible under the circumstances. Please give my regards 
to King Tibarn. Long life to him! Huzzah!

Janaff: My homeland of Phoenicis is bordered by South Sea. Itís a wonderful 
place to live. There arenít that many of us, and everyone gets along... Iíve 
seen many countries with my own eyes, but Phoenicis is the best!
Lucia: Did Phoenicis have diplomatic relations with other countries?
Janaff: No, we donít associate with the others. We used to be allied with 
Serenes... until those cursed humans destroyed it. And Kilvas is ruled by a 
cunning and heartless king. We have no trust for him.
Lucia: Did you ever associate with beorc countries?
Janaff: Ha! Thatíll never happen! After the slaughter of Serenes, the beorc 
became our enemy.
Lucia: I do not blame you for your anger... But as I have said, Crimea wishes 
to establish diplomatic relations with you. Our late king advocated 
friendship with the laguz, and enjoyed a good rapport with King Caineghis of 
Gallia.
Janaff: So I hear. Look, most Phoenicians would be perfectly happy living 
their entire lives without outside contact... But I suppose a friendship 
with Crimea is possible. If our king so decides. 
Lucia: And what do you think?
Janaff: What do I think? Huh... I used to loathe huma... beorc. Even hearing 
the word made me angry. But... Now I think friendship is possible. Thatís 
all because I met you.
Lucia: Oh... Well... Thank you. I am glad to be of assistance.

Lucia: In Crimea, we dream of peace for all people. Friendship that 
transcends nation, creed, and race. Beorc and laguz, living in harmony.
Janaff: Transcending race, huh? Crimea is an odd country. I heard you even 
let laguz live within your borders!
Lucia: Yes, due to our bond with King Caineghis. And now, Prince Elincia 
hopes to establish such alliances with other laguz nations.
Janaff: Itís a pretty thought. But do you think that a friendship which 
transcends nation, creed, and race will come so easily?
Lucia: It will not be easy, but it can beó
Janaff: For example. You know that Phoenicis and Begnion used to be bitter 
enemies, right?
Lucia: Yes, I know.
Janaff: The apostle finally recognized the Serenes massacre, but who knows 
how long itíll take that news to spread over the country? Before that 
happens, there could be more fighting. War might erupt anew. If so, whose 
side will you choose?
Lucia: I wouldó
Janaff: Itíll be Begnion. Come on! Am I wrong? And in the eyes of Phoenicis, 
Crimea is nothing more that a Begnion colony. Which means Iíll fight against 
you.
Lucia: Princess Elincia would do everything in her power to avoid such a war. 
However, I am her loyal vassal. In the event of conflict, my path is clear.
Janaff: Same here. The kingís ally is my ally. And the kingís enemy... But if 
I can help it, Iíd rather not fight a good-looking woman like you! Dinner 
would be much more enjoyable.
Lucia: I agree, Janaff. When this war is over and Crimea rebuilt... letís 
meet again. Not as enemies, but as friends.

this war, and it's already coming to an end. It's not clear yet who will win, 
but it's certainly coming to a head. When my plate is clean, I'll find you.

attack!
Geoffrey: ...
Calill: Oh, Iím sorry, Sir Geoffrey. I was careless with my words.
Geoffrey: No, you speak the truth.
Calill: I think your earlier story was even more fascinating, though! I 
canít believe that you are the son of Elinciaís foster mother and have 
known Her Highness since childhood.
Geoffrey: Those early days were the best of my life. Crimea was at peace, 
and the whole land was filled with such beauty. The princess was 
especially beautiful... I remember chasing her and my sister, Lucia, around 
the villa... But alas! She is above my station! I can never have her, and 
yet... I cannot forget the past.
Calill: Shush! You canít wallow in your own memories like that! You have to 
live in the here and now! Itís true that times are hard. We spend every day 
fighting, covered in sweat and blood... But there is always hope! You must 
find what...pleasures you can whenever possible.
Geoffrey: Calill. You are right. I must not lose hope. I regret my outburst.
Calill: Oh, thatís all right. Actually, I prefer a man whoís a couple links 
short of a full chain. Makes him more interesting.
Geoffrey: Thank you. For now, I will devote myself to rebuilding Crimea. 
Though I think fondly on the princess, I know that our time together will 
never be as it once was. To serve her for life and watch her happiness from 
a distance... I can live with that.
Calill: Or you could just elope! Kidding! Iím kidding. Besides, youíre too 
straightlaced for that. I know you. Itís a shame. The two of you would make a 
nice couple. 
Geoffrey: ...Youíre a good person, Miss Calill.
Calill: Oh, I know it! You canít just find a smart, attractive woman like 
this on every corner, you know?
Geoffrey: You are indeed a gem among stones.
Calill: Oh, no! Donít try to sweet talk me now! Itís far too late for such 
flattery! I know how you feel about the princess. I wouldnít want to compete.
Geoffrey: Mmm... Thatís unfortunate. 
Calill: Ha ha ha! Well, at least we became good friends. Expose your heart to 
me without fear, brave Sir Geoffrey! Iíll stand by you to the end.

Elincia: Hmmm...
Geoffrey: Are you looking for someone, Your Highness?
Elincia: Geoffrey. I'm glad you're here.
Geoffrey: Is there anything I can do for you?
Elincia: Yes, actually. I have a small favor to ask of you.
Geoffrey: Ask anything of me, Your Highness, and I shall make it so.
Elincia: Really? You would do anything?
Geoffrey: Anything at all.
Elincia: Well, then here goes... Geoffrey... I need you to leave me alone 
while I fight on the battlefield.
Geoffrey: What?! Without protection? But, you know that is the one thing I 
cannot--
Elincia: I don't want to hear any objections. This is... an order. You must 
obey.
Geoffrey: But... Princess Elincia...

-B Support-

Geoffrey: Your Highness... Please, I beg you to reconsider.
Elincia: ...
Geoffrey: I am aware that you took offense to my disobeying your order... 
But... You cannot ask me to leave you alone and undefended! I am a royal 
knight. It is my duty and honor to ride by your side and defend you on the 
field of battle.
Elincia: ...
Geoffrey: Your Highness, please! On bended knee, I beg this of you.
Elincia: Would you stop defending me if I stripped you of your title?
Geoffrey: ...T-take away my knighthood?
Elincia: ...
Geoffrey: I see. I had no idea you wanted to avoid me this badly.
Elincia: No, Geoffrey. That's not--
Geoffrey: I may have spoken out of turn, but all I wanted was to honor my 
oath and shield you from harm. I'm sorry...
Elincia: Wait... Geoffrey! Geoffrey!

-A Support-

Elincia: I've listened to all that you've had to say, Geoffrey. Now it's time 
for you to hear me out.
Geoffrey: By your command.
Elinica: You fight too hard and take too many risks to protect me in combat.
Geoffrey: Is that not what a knight is sworn to do?
Elincia: But you put yourself at grave risk!
Geoffrey: It is true. I have felt the bite of steel several times while 
protecting you... But I would do so again without a thought!
Elincia: You promised me long ago that you wouldn't needlessly jeopardize your 
life for my sake. I guess you don't value your life after all.
Geoffrey: Your Highness...
Elincia: I know you think I should stay at camp and rest on silken pillows 
without suiting up for battle. But... There's no way I could stand... Stand 
seeing someone so dear to me die just beyond my grasp. So... now you know why 
I asked this of you.
Geoffrey: I don't know if you realize all that you've done for the soldiers. 
Do you see how you have raised the spirits of the Crimean soldiers since you 
began fighting alongside them? Their princess herself leads the charge! She 
doesn't ask the soldiers to risk their lives without risking her own. They 
adore you. And that is why we win our battles. They fight with a ferocity no 
other force could possibly match. They will win at any cost.
Elincia: ...
Geoffrey: I admit I have been fighting recklessly. ...I did so knowing you 
were near me. I knew you'd be by my side if I were gravely wounded.
Elincia: Yet... You feel me a burden.
Geoffrey: I can't imagine fighting without you anymore. If you do hold my life 
dear, please keep fighting. Lead us to victory!
Elincia: Oh, Geoffrey. I'm so sorry I brought you so much torment. I 
misunderstood you. I am... so immature.
Geoffrey: I disobeyed your direct orders. That's no badge of honor, either.
Elincia: I'm sure I'll keep causing you troubles... but please... never leave 
my side, Geoffrey.
Geoffrey: Princess Elincia... My life and blade are yours.

Muarim: ...?
Largo: I mean, my arms are pretty massive... but those babies are something 
else!
Muarim: You have big muscles, too...
Largo: Ba ha ha ha! Brute force is about the only thing I've got going for 
me! Hey, why are you carrying those water jugs?
Muarim: I'm taking them to the well.
Largo: You're filling all those jugs? They've got to weigh as much as an ox 
once you get water in them! One, two, three, four, five... You've got quite a 
handful there. Let me give you a hand.
Muarim: You don't have to do that.
Largo: Aw, heck! It's no problem! I may not be able to cast a bunch of fancy 
spells, but I can carry heavy stuff as well as any man or beast!
Muarim: ...All right, then. Let us go.

-B Support-

Largo: How goes it, Muarim?
Muarim: Largo. Thanks for your help the other day.
Largo: Bwa ha ha ha! That was nothing. You know, I've traveled all around the 
world, and I've never seen someone as burly as you. I'm pretty stout, but I 
bet you could mop the floor with me... So who do you think could lift the 
most?
Muarim: It's hard to say...
Largo: The heaviest thing I ever lifted was this tree I cut down. It was three 
times my size! What about you?
Muarim: Well... One time, I chiseled rocks from a mountain and carried them 
up to repair a castle wall.
Largo: Rocks?! How big were they?
Muarim: Mmm... big. Taller than me.
Largo: That's incredible! ...Hey, how do you feel about a little strength 
competition? I bet we'd be pretty evenly matched!
Muarim: No, that's just...
Largo: Don't be so uptight! Come on! It'll be fun!
Muarim: ...Hmmm... All right... But just this once!

-A Support-

Largo: Hey, Muarim! That lifting competition we had the other day was epic!
Muarim: Yes. It was a good time.
Largo: People got interested when we were seeing who could lift the most cured 
hams! That crowd was huge!
Muarim: Mmm... It got a bit out of hand when we started lifting people.
Largo: Bwa ha ha! We were neck and neck right until the end. The last thing I 
stacked on my back was that big smoked ham, but then you picked up that girl! 
What was her name again?
Muarim: Mist.
Largo: Yeah, that's her. We could have settled the competition if we had 
known which was heavier. Huh! I still think it was the ham...
Muarim: You were quite amazing.
Largo: Amazing? Me? Naw, not Largo! You were the incredible one!
Muarim: I'm not talking about how many hams you lifted. You were able to draw 
everyone together. It gave them a laugh, despite the stress of battle. 
Everyone had a chance to relax and blow off some steam.
Largo: Well, everyone deserves a good belly laugh! Bwaaaaa haa haa haaaaaa!!
Muarim: You also treat me and everyone else the same. You are a good beorc.
Largo: Bwa ha ha! I just call it like I see it! I don't deserve any credit for 
that. For now, let's call our match a tie. How about some arm wrestling next 
time? There's no way you can beat me at that!
Muarim: Hah! We shall see!

Largo: That's strange...
Tauroneo: ...
Largo: Hey, Tauroneo!
Tauroneo: Hmm!
Largo: Don't you think this army is a little odd? I mean, heck! It's not 
every day that you see soldiers from this many countries all mixed into one 
army. I've traveled and fought in a lot of strange places, but this is the 
first time I've seen anything quite like this.
Tauroneo: You're right. There are even former Daein soliders in this army. 
There is no shortage of nationalities, to be sure.
Largo: My favorite part about it is we get to sample all kinds of exotic 
dishes. Gwa! I've never snacked so well in my life.
Tauroneo: What are you holding?
Largo: This quill? Oh, I use it to jot down ideas so I won't forget them 
later. If I don't, I just completely forget them! But back to food... I've 
noticed that the laguz sure like their food spicy! And now they've started 
drinking with us! Bwaa ha ha! That's great! By the way, what's your drink of 
choice?
Tauroneo: Drinks? I'm not picky. The stronger the better!
Largo: And flavor?
Tauroneo: Doesn't matter.
Largo: Bwaaaa ha ha haaaa!! I like your answer! I better write that down so I 
don't forget.

Largo: Hmmmm...
Tauroneo: ...
Largo: Ahhhh... er... Naaaaaaah...
Tauroneo: Is something wrong?
Largo: Hmmm? Oh, it's you.
Tauroneo: You've done nothing but stare at that piece of paper for hours. Are 
you crazy, man?
Largo: Oh, you have a point... Crazy... Craaaazy... You may be onto 
something. I'll have to write that down. But it'll have to wait until later, 
I can't think about two things at the same time.
Tauroneo: You can't? Well, what are you thinking about now?
Largo: I'm saving up the money I make here to open my own little place. I'm 
thinkin' a pub would be nice... Is that a good idea?
Tauroneo: A pub? Yes, pubs are nice. Will you make savory meat pies? With 
buttery crusts?
Largo: Savory! Oh, yeah. They'll be the savoriest! They'll make your head 
explode! ...I don't want my customers dropping dead, though... I want everyone 
to be happy. Hmmm... Hey, people like butter, right? There'll be free sticks 
of butter on every table!
Tauroneo: That's a great dream. Where are you going to open your place?
Largo: Well, uh... it may not look like it, but I'm actually from Begnion. So 
I'll probably open my pub back home. But from what I hear, Crimea and Daein 
are nice places, too... This is going to be a hard choice...
Tauroneo: ...Do you want me to help you with the pub?
Largo: Oh, yeah! That would be great! Two people can think about two things 
at once. That will help for sure. All right, so we'll have savory meat 
pies... But what about the rest of the menu?

-A Support-

Largo: Hmmm... That's not it. That's no good, either...
Tauroneo: Are you thinking about your pub again?
Largo: Hey, Tauroneo! Can you dish me up some more of your good advice?
Tauroneo: Glad to.
Largo: I'm trying to come up with a name for my pub.
Tauroneo: What do you have so far?
Largo: How about "Savory Pies And Stuff"?
Tauroneo: Hmmm. It's a bit... odd.
Largo: Maybe you're right. Let me think... I want this to be a pub where 
both beorc and laguz can walk on in, get a meat pie and a frosty beverage, 
and be happy. So how about we name it the "All You Beorc And Laguz Come On 
Down And Get Yourself A Meat Pie Pub"!
Tauroneo: That's a little long.
Largo: No good, eh? Nuts. What am I gonna do? I'm no good at thinking up 
stuff like this.
Tauroneo: Maybe you're thinking too hard. How about naming it after something 
you think is important?
Largo: Hey, yeah! I'll call it "Calill." She's always been my favorite.
Tauroneo: Naming it after an old flame, eh? I say go with that. I'll be sure 
to drop in for a pie and a brew when you open your place.
Largo: You better! I'll have your favorite drink waiting for you! Your 
favorite drink is... Wait, I know this... I wrote it down somewhere... Oh, 
here it is... Strong!
Tauroneo: Yep.
Largo: Bwaaa ha ha haaaa!!! Leave it to me!

Elincia: Oh... my lord Ike. I was getting prepared for battle, but... I'm 
having a hard time attaching this scabbard to my belt.
Ike: Hmm... let me see. Ah... here's the problem. The buckle on the scabbard 
isn't fastened. There's a little trick to this. Don't move for a second. 
...All right. That should do it!
Elincia: Thank you. I just can't seem to do anything right. I can't even get 
myself ready for battle! Everyone else is all suited up.
Ike: Everyone here was the same way when they first started. In fact, it 
wasn't all that long ago when I was having a hard time fastening my 
scabbard...
Elincia: Really?
Ike: That's right. But my father drilled me hard and tested my swordsmanship 
and survival skills before I could eat breakfast. We come from different 
worlds, Princess.
Elincia: So that's how you learned so much...
Ike: Well, you don't need to practice so hard. You weren't born to be a 
mercenary like the rest of us war dogs. You'll just get yourself killed if you 
jump into this rough and nasty war unprepared.
Elincia: I understand...
Ike: Just don't worry about it. There's no shame in asking for help from the 
rest of us. We'll be there to back you up.
Elincia: Thank you, my lord Ike.

Ike: Princess Elincia? You're still here?
Elincia: Oh, my lord Ike. W-well, I was getting a little practice in. I don't 
want to be a burden to everyone else.
Ike: Wouldn't it be better to have a training partner?
Elincia: I'd feel guilty asking someone to train with me. It would be a waste 
of time... I am no match for their skill.
Ike: I meant what I said earlier... About not hesitating to ask for help? But 
I guess you decided to ignore me.
Elincia: N-no, no... it's not like that at all. I heard what you said, but I 
still feel so...
Ike: I know how powerless and frustrated you must feel. It was a terrifying 
feeling when I discovered my father had left me in command of the Greil 
Mercenaries.
Elincia: ...
Ike: But there's a huge difference between inheriting a country and a band of 
mercenaries, isn't there?
Elincia: Not at all... You're absolutely right. It's hard... knowing what kind 
of responsibility I have, and just how unsuited I am to take it.
Ike: Over the last year, I learned a lot from all those battles... Mostly, I 
learned that there are many things I can't do on my own. Everything I achieved 
was possible only because of the people around me. I trust them completely. 
And I'm not ashamed to ask for help. That goes for you, too. You're not alone.
Elincia: That's a great way to look at it. Thank you!

Elincia: ...
Ike: We finally reach the capital tomorrow.
Elincia: Yes...

Elincia: More than a little anxious... But... We've finally made it. I'm home. 
More than anything, I feel relief.
Ike: You've grown strong, Princess.
Elincia: That's only because I had such a great role model.
Ike: Hah! I think you meant to say bad role model, right? By the way, do you 
remember what you said to me on the southern sea?
Elincia: W-what did I say? Hopefully, it was nothing too embarassing.
Ike: You said, "Give them a sound thrashing!"
Elincia: Oh... er... that? That was... um... I was trying to fit in, my lord 
Ike. To be rough and capable like the rest of you.
Ike: You caught me off guard with that one.
Elincia: Hee hee! It brings back memories. When I fled the capital and was 
told about Crimea's defeat in Gallia... I prepared myself to live in crushing, 
colorless despair for the rest of my days. But when I look back, I can see 
there were some warm rays of hope... poking through.
Ike: You're right...
Elincia: Tomorrow, I will face King Daein and reclaim Crimea... or die in the 
attempt. It is the only thing on my mind.
Ike: You employed me as a mercenary. I'll give you your money's worth! ...No. 
It means more than that... To my last breath, I will do all that I can to 
ensure your dream... Elincia.
