INTRODUCTION
==============================================================================

     Greetings, and thanks for checking out my Character Support FAQ for Fire
Emblem.  This is my VERY FIRST submission to GameFAQS and I hope you will at
the very least find this guide slightly entertaining.

     This FAQ will eventually(I hope) include the many support conversations
found in Fire Emblem, and I will add a few of my own comments on what I think
of the conversation.

     For those who don't know what a support conversation is well I will try
and explain it to you.  In the game almost every character has special or
secret conversations with other characters, these can be discussions on topics
such as past events, what they think of each other, or even what they had for
breakfast.  In order to get the support conversations or SC's as I will refer
to them as you must put two characters that you wish to have a SC together
adjacent to one another and leave them there for a certain amount of turns.
The amount of turns it exactly takes varies from person to person and after the
required amount of turns together has passed a new option will appear on the
characters action menu called "Support", simply pushing this will begin a SC
with another character.  You can check the status of your SC's by going into
the menu screen and entering the "Unit" screen, from here simply move to the
farthest left screen titled "Support Chance" and you will see a layout similar
to this:

Name          Ally
==============================================================================
Eliwood      Hector     ---     ---
Hector      Eliwood    Serra    ---
Guy             ---     ---     ---
Dorcas          ---     ---     ---
Bartre          ---     ---     ---
Rebecca       Lowen     ---     ---
Serra        Hector  Matthew    ---
==============================================================================

     What all this means is that Eliwood can have a SC with Hector, and thus
Hector can in turn have one with Eliwood.  Hector can also have a SC with
Serra, and so on.  There are 3 levels of SC for each character that can get
SC's with one another(does that make sense?) OK so Hector and Eliwood can have
a total of 3 SC's with each other level "C", "B", and "A", but another
limitation is that each character can only have a total of 5 SC's in one game
meaning that if you wanted to see all 3 of Eliwood and Hectors chats but you
also wanted to see all of Hector and Serras conversations then you would be out
of luck since you can only get 5 total SC's in one play through.  You could get
2 of Eliwood/Hector and 3 of Serra/Hector, or 2 of Serra/Hector and 3 of
Eliwood/Hector but not the total 3 for each.  Seeing as how some characters can
hace conversations with 5 or more characters, you will obviously have to replay
this game a lot if you want them all.

     OK, hopefully that cleared up a little bit and I hope I will be able to
at least try to get all of the conversations, even if it will take awhile.

               Added a "*" next to the pairing I have completed.
               (November 29, 2003)
Version 0.60:  It has been one whole month since I started this FAQ, I don't
               know if this is where I expected it to be or not, but, with a
               lot of work, and help, here it is... I am aiming at Christmas
               for the date when I have all of he conversations completed.  I
               will work on a new layout after that, I already have one in
               mind... Anyways still a lot of work to go...
               Completed Merlinus's, Farina's, and Renault's sections.
               (December 7, 2003)
Version 0.65:  Sorry for the lack of an update, I had Finals this past week,
               now I'm free, Hazaa!
               Completed Vaida's and Nino's section.  Removed the B from Guy
               and Louise's conversation since they can only get as far as B
               anyway, it is now a plain *.
               (December 13, 2003)
Version 0.70:  Trying to pile on the conversations, it may look like there is
               a lot left to go by looking at the empty spots next to the name
               but for each conversation I get done two stars get put in.
               Not so sure about a Christmas release but ya never know...
               Completed Harken's, Karel's, and Louise's sections. Got a few
               random ones poked in here and there...
               (December 18, 2003)
Version 0.75:  Oh well... Looks like I'm out of time for that Christmas release,
               sorry about that, with everything going on during the holidays I
               never had the chance to really go at it.
               Completed Pent's, Hawkeye's, Marcus's, and Wallace's sections.
               (December 28, 2003)
Version 0.76:  Here we go, I don't think I have this listed in my FAQ but if
               some of you are having problems getting the support conversations
               it might be that you are trying to get them during Lyndis's story
               since the context of most of the conversations have to do with
               events one year after Lyndis's story, it is understandable why
               you cannot access them until you are in control as Eliwood as
               your main character. Sorry no conversations this time I've been
               busy. I'm getting close to having them all though...
               Oh! I added a couple Frequently asked questions...
               (Jan 5, 2004)
Version 0.85:  starting to fill in the missing conversations from the specific
               characters lists, thanks to friends sending in their own convos
               to add to mine.
               Hmm, a nice few sections are done now... lets see...
               Completed Rebecca's, Bartre's, Raven's, Florina's, Erk's, and
               Canas's sections. I might have said someone who I already did
               or I might of missed out someone... just look through the
               characters if your not sure who is done.
               (January 15, 2004)
Version 0.86:  Added Wil and Rath's conversation pairing, thanks to Tracy Smith.
               With that I have completed another section...  ...... ...Rath's!
               sorry, I had to scroll down to see which one it was I had
               finished.
               I've decided that the rnking thing needs a bit of fine tuning,
               as you all may have noticed I have left those blank for the most
               part.  It is just the way it is set up where conversations with
               no comedy, but indeed are very interesting and great, get a poor
               rating because of the way it is set up, so for conversations with
               no comedy I will replace COMEDIC VALUE with INTEREST LEVEL...
               I guess that makes it fair... ...... Writing all these
               conversations has put me in the habit of putting ...'s in places
               where I would normally put a comma... ... ...... anyways, I have
               very few left to do and I hope to have them done this week,
               cause I am moving after that and I doubt I'll be able to work on
               this in awhile since I won't have access to a computer.  Again
               if this is the last update in a while, which I hope it won't be,
               thanks a lot to everyone for reading my FAQ, and a special thanks
               to those who have given me any kind of help at all, wheter it be
               sending me conversations to add, or just plain saying keep up the
               good work.
               (January 19, 2004)
Version 0.90:  This is my final update...
               Completed Serra's, Lucius's, Dart's, and Wil's Sections...
               This is it. I'm leaving tommorow, this is as far as my FAQ goes
               I'm afraid... When I get access to a computer I will try and
               finish it up. Until then...
Version 0.95:  Hey I got a chance to update the FAQ so here it is, this should
               now contain all the conversations in the game;
               Support conversations anyways...
               Uh I might update a bit later just to clean the errors and
               mistakes undoubtedly rampant throughout this FAQ.
               I'll probably add stuff like the bonuses the supports give to
               characters stats and of course which supports result in endings

               On another note I haven't checked all my mail to see who I owe
               credit too so if your name is not in the credits just mail me
               and if I remember you :P I'll put ya in. Just be sure to tell me
               what ya want to be credit as in my FAQ.
Version 0.96:  Back from the grave! I decided to add a conversation code to help
               search for specific conversations.  Just hit the Ctrl+F combo and
               type in the conversation code, and away you go.  Also picked up
               on a few typos...
Version 0.97:  Back again with another update! this time I just added a section
               about Pent and Louise, and basically which levels unlock their
               conversations.  See you next update.

==============================================================================
CHARACTER LIST
==============================================================================

The following is a character list and how many people they can have SC's with
and who, as well as the rate at which they gain points going towards an SC, as
there are three different levels C, B, and A and a different amount of
turns stood next to each other is needed for different people.  Their growth
rates may vary, as well as their starting values.

Ex/ of rate  25/2

25 is the starting value, and 2 is how much it goes up by each turn the
characters stay together.

The amount needed for each SC level is as follows:

Level C:   81 points
Level B:  161 points
Level A:  241 points

A "*" next to the growth rate means I have the conversations done for that pair
of characters.

Character          No. of Supports          With          Growth Rate

PENT AND LOUISE
==============================================================================

     Alright, here is another little helpful section.  Basically Pent and Louise
get their conversations during different levels.  The levels their conversations
are triggered are as follows:

C RANK - CHAPTER 27 (Cog of Destiny)

B RANK - CHAPTER 30 (Victory or Death)

A RANK - FINAL CHAPTER (Light)*

For the A rank, it is in the second half of the final chapter.

Hope that clears a bit up.

==============================================================================
CONVERSATION CODES
==============================================================================

     The new section, conversation codes.  Just scan the list for the pairing
you want to read and copy the code, do a Ctrl+F, paster the code, hit enter,
whamo!

==============================================================================
SUPPORT CONVERSATIONS
==============================================================================

     Finally, here are the SC's I have gathered up thus far, I plan on getting
them all but it will take some time and work so bare with me.

I will list the characters who are having the conversation first then the rank
of the conversation, followed by the conversation itself and then a few
comments by my part.

ex/

ELIWOOD/HECTOR     C RANK

ELIWOOD: "Them's some nice logs you got cut there"
HECTOR:  "Thanks for noticing"
(note this does not exist)

(out of a possible 10)
STORY RANK:       0
COMEDIC VALUE:    9
OVERALL RANK:   4.5

COMMENTS: What the hell does logs got to do with anything? on a plus side it
was kinda funny.

that was just an example I made up to show what my format will be, since there
will be repeats of conversations between the different character sections I
may have some data redundancy, I might change it if the size issue gets too big
or if anyone has a better idea on how to arrange them.

     Anyways here goes:

==============================================================================
ELIWOOD
==============================================================================

ELIWOOD/HECTOR     C RANK     CC003

HECTOR:   Ah, Eliwood! It's good to see you're still well!
ELIWOOD:  Hm.  You expected otherwise?
HECTOR:   No, of course not, I knew you'd be fine.
ELIWOOD:  Hector, wait for a moment.  What did you want?
HECTOR:   Nothing.  It's enough to see that you live and are still fighting.
          Just wanted to make sure you weren't overdoing it with me not around.
ELIWOOD:  I should say the same to you.
HECTOR:   Me? don't worry about me.  I'm fine.  I'm built tough you know.  A
          little too much is just enough for me.  But you, you've never been
          a hardy one, Eliwood.  Nor are you used to travel.  Go on too long,
          and you'll collapse.
ELIWOOD:  We're all weaklings compared to you, Hector. ...Thankfully wars are
          not won by strength alone, eh? We've been sparring once every two
          months since we were twelve, and of the 30 matches, 14 I won, 12 I
          lost, and 4 were draws.
HECTOR:   Erh? I think not! I recall 31 matches--an even 13-13 split, with
          5 draws!
ELIWOOD:  Yes, well, you recall wrong.  I'm in the right.
HECTOR:   Hmph.  And what makes you so certain?
ELIWOOD:  Whoose snoring was it that shook the rafters in numbers class?
HECTOR:   Ah, good point.
ELIWOOD:  ...Still, I'm touched you were worried about me.  Now, back to
          the fray!
HECTOR:   Hey, wait! ...Blast.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
STORY RANK:       7
COMEDIC VALUE:    6
OVERALL RANK:   6.5

COMMENTS: I was snoring during numbers class too, so that average score might
be off.  Overall this is a good SC, it provides some information about Eliwood
and Hector's past and adds a bit of comedy too, which is always a plus in my
book.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ELIWOOD/HECTOR     B RANK     CC003

ELIWOOD:  Something, wrong Hector? Was that a yawn I saw? Not the best
          battlefield manners.
HECTOR:   Ah... It's nothing.  Just my dreams lately...
ELIWOOD:  Dreams? What kind of dreams?
HECTOR:   Laugh, and I'll kill you.
ELIWOOD:  ...All right.
HECTOR:   There was this man--a giant with a beard--carrying a girl on his
          shoulders.  The girl called to him "Father," and she was smiling,
          happy.  Then the father said to her, "Yes, my beloved daughter?"
          That's all, really.  But it felt as though... It felt like a
          long-past memory.  The man looked a bit like my own father, I
          suppose.  But who was the little girl? Aye, she was a cute one.
ELIWOOD:  What color was her hair?
HECTOR:   huh.  Blue.
ELIWOOD:  And the man's hair? his moustache?
HECTOR:   His were bluish, too.
ELIWOOD:  Then it is a vision on your own future! A great moustache, eh?
          Ah hah hah!
HECTOR:   Grr... You laughed! Hm.  If that is my future I'm not sure I like it.
ELIWOOD:  Why not?
HECTOR:   The girl that would be my daughter... She gets taken away by this
          boy that appears later.  ...A boy with red hair! Yes, it was red, I'm
          sure of it.
ELIWOOD:  Don't get ahead of yourself! there are plenty of people with
          red hair...
HECTOR:   Quiet! now I'm sure--the boy was a Pheraen.  No matter how close we
          may be, I'll not--I'll not give up my daughter!
ELIWOOD:  Hector! Let's hope your dream doesn't come true, eh? For my sake.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
STORY RANK:       9
COMEDIC VALUE:    8
OVERALL RANK:   8.5

COMMENTS: Hmm a very interesting conversation... could this boy with red hair
be... no it couldn't! Could it!? Haha, anyways, this SC gives great, uh...
forestory? Hector can see into the future somehow or another.  Some great
comedy mixed in here as well.  A great SC.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ELIWOOD/HECTOR     A RANK     CC003

ELIWOOD:  Hector, you still remember that time?
HECTOR:   What time?
ELIWOOD:  You know, what was it--ten years ago? When the lords of Lycia held
          the oath rites, back in Ostia? "Should one land of Lycia be attacked,
          all will fight at one..." Remember? While our parents were off
          pledging thier oaths, we were kids in that one room.
HECTOR:   Yeah, I remember.  We had to act in a manner befitting the children
          of nobility, or some such nonsense.  I just remember being stuck in
          there, having to sit in that chair talking to whoever was next to me.
          Course, wouldn't you know that Erik of Laus was on my right? Man, I
          heard more than enough sweet talk from that one!
ELIWOOD:  Right, right.  That was the first time any of us met, after all.
          He had no idea who you were--he just wanted to get in favor with a
          lordling of Lycia.
HECTOR:   Aye, he was all mouth anyway.  Saying things like "let us join forces
          for the good of Lycia," and such... then running when things turned
          sour.
ELIWOOD:  Aw, don't be too hard on him.  When he jumped up, yelling about us
          swearing our own oaths, then cut his hand like that... No one else
          knew what to do, either.
HECTOR:   Well, everyone's heard the stories.  They all know it's the warrior's
          custom.  Each cuts his own hand, then shakes hands with his
          brothers... What man wouldn't want to do that? Only one had the guts
          to meet him, though.
ELIWOOD:  ...You know, back then, I'm proud I took your hand.  We are friends,
          sharing a life-dream now, an ambition.  When one is in danger, the
          other risks his life to protect him... That's why you came, isn't it?
          Because you remembered?
HECTOR:   Heh.  I've got no plans to break my oath.  Not now, not ever.
ELIWOOD:  Likewise.
HECTOR:   Well, then lets live long and in health! I don't want to hear any
          excuses about not being able to come help when we're old men.
ELIWOOD:  It's a deal.  ...Stay alive, Hector.
HECTOR:   Deal.  And don't you go dying before me, either.  I'd never forgive
          you.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
STORY RANK:      10
INTEREST LEVEL:   7
OVERALL RANK:   8.5

COMMENTS: Not much to say about this one, it pretty much explains itself.  Not
a great deal of laughs but it's a interesting SC, as it provides a bit of
backstory for Eliwood and Hector.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ELIWOOD/MARCUS     C RANK     CC006

MARCUS:   Lord Eliwood! You are not hurt?
ELIWOOD:  Marcus? Thanks, I'm fine.
MARCUS:   Perhaps it is not my place... But, Lord Eliwood, you should
          stay out of combat, I think.  Let me deal with the enemy!
          You can join me, Lord Eliwood, and thus travel in safety...
ELIWOOD:  I'm afraid that cannot be.  This is my journey to make.
          It is my responsibility.

MARCUS:   But it does make me lonely, you know.  When you were born,

ELIWOOD:  Marcus?
MARCUS:   I have been watching your progress on your journey...
ELIWOOD:  What is it? There's no need for formalities with me.
MARCUS:   Ah, it's just, I was thinking how much you've grown... Even on this
          journey, seeing you going off to battle, brave and strong. You have
          much of your father's presence.
ELIWOOD:  You think so?
MARCUS:   I do. Mine eyes fill with tears of joy, truly...
ELIWOOD:  There you go with the poetry again, Marcus. ...That reminds me of
          something my father once spoke of. Marcus, you went into battle by
          my father when he was young?
MARCUS:   Indeed. I was just a page at the time. But under Lord Elbert's
          command I swung my spear as best as I could.
ELIWOOD:  And you fight by my side on this, my journey, as well.
MARCUS:   I made a promise to Lord Elbert. I swore to protect the lord Eliwood
          until his return. Knights of Pherae always carry out their orders,
          you see.
ELIWOOD:  And Pherae owes its very existence to you, Marcus. Thank you.

MARCUS:   ...ung...
ELIWOOD:  M-Marcus!? What is wrong!
MARCUS:   To concern yourself with a mere retainer in the midst of battle...
          Even in such a horrid conflict as this one, still you have lost none
          of your heart, Lord Eliwood.
ELIWOOD:  Your sentiments could make a mourner smile, Marcus!
MARCUS:   Take care of your heart, Lord Eliwood. You will need it to lead your
          people upon your return to Pherae.
ELIWOOD:  Yes...let us all return to Pherae together. For that alone, we must
          win this battle. Should we fall on the road, my dear mother's heart
          would never mend.
MARCUS:   Do not worry, my young lord. I, Marcus, will defend you. I have sworn
          that Lord Eliwood will return safely to Pherae. And return you shall,
          to find a lovely, kind wife to lead with you. Then you will follow in

ELIWOOD:  Marcus... I know no knight of Pherae more worthy of the title than
          you. I thank you, as does my future son.
MARCUS:   It occurs to me... When Lord Elbert became engaged to the Lady
          Eleanora... Why he was the same age you are now, Lord Eliwood. As a

LOWEN:    Oh, but it is! this is a most unforgivable oversight! "If the stomach

LOWEN:    Why, yes!
ELIWOOD:  You...an esquire... Why?
LOWEN:    My father was the chef to the previous marquess of Pherae... In other

          his back out, that is... Your father, too, acquired a taste for his
          cooking, you see. So when I had the pleasure of joining him on his

          every meal!
ELIWOOD:  Oh, I get it now...
LOWEN:    I am afraid I do not know your tastes, Lord Eliwood. Everything I
          have made up on this trip, has been things your lord father, Elbert,
          favored. I do hope you find them suitable to your palate?
ELIWOOD:  For an esquire such as yourself to cook... With your patrol and watch
          duties, where do you find the time? I mean, you really don't have
          to...

LYNDIS:   Banquets...I see.  Those are no place for someone from the plains,

FIORA:    Yes, Lord Eliwood?
ELIWOOD:  I had a thought while watching you fight. I feared you may be working
          too hard. Resting is as important as fighting, remember.
FIORA:    Thank you, my lord. But... I am a pegasus knight of Ilia. When I
          think of the people of my homeland, I cannot but fight harder.
ELIWOOD:  Still...
FIORA:    My performance here reflects on all the knights of Ilia. The more
          tasks I complete, the bigger the reward I bring home, and the happier
          my people may live.
ELIWOOD:  What about your happiness?
FIORA:    What?
ELIWOOD:  I know your homeland of Ilia is a poor land. And I know thoughts of
          your sister weigh heavily in your mind. But do not forget you have a
          right to happiness, too. Were you to become a sacrifice for your
          country...that would not do. No one would be happy, then.
FIORA:    Lord Eliwood...
ELIWOOD:  Forgive me, perhaps it is not my place. Still, watching you... I
          felt I had to say something. For someone as talented as yourself not
          to find happiness... Well, that would be the greatest tragedy of of
          all.
FIORA:    ... ... I must admit... This is the first time anyone has ever said
          something like that to me. ... ...
ELIWOOD:  ... ...
FIORA:    But...let us not linger here overlong.
ELIWOOD:  Yes... Yes, of course.
FIORA:    I beg your leave.
ELIWOOD:  Ah, wait a moment. Fiora!
FIORA:    Yes?
ELIWOOD:  I would like you to stay nearby, by my side. So that I can... So
          that I may protect you.
FIORA:    Lord Eliwood... Yes, I... I understand.

HARKEN:   Lord Eliwood.
ELIWOOD:  Ah, Harken.  How may I help you?
HARKEN:   Please, allow me to speak frankly.  Might you allow the fighting to
          be left in our hands from here out?
ELIWOOD:  Harken?
HARKEN:   Lord Eliwood, you are the heart of our army.  When I imagine the worst
          that might happen, I think it wiser for you to remain at the rear of
          our forces.
ELIWOOD:  You worry overmuch, Harken, I will be fine.  Though...I am
          inexperienced in battle, this is true.  And I apologize for giving
          you cause to worry.  Still...
HARKEN:   No, I did not mean to siggest that anyone doubts your prowess.
          Indeed, your arm in battle has improved by leaps and bounds since
          Pherae.  I believe you are equal to even your father, Lord Elbert,
          now.  Yet...still, we are concerned.  I ask at that least you do not
          take any unecessary risks.

ELIWOOD:  Ah, Harken.
HARKEN:   I hate to seem imposing, but I must ask you again, please, your
          safety is of utmost importance.  If you would just refrain from combat
          and leave the fighting to me...
ELIWOOD:  I thank you, Harken, but still... I have my reasons why I must fight.
          Until I finish what I have set out to do on my journey, I cannot
          think of escaping, or avoiding my enemies in any way.
HARKEN:   Lord Eliwood, please...
ELIWOOD:  Should something indeed befall me, look to my mother.  She will be
          alone.  You and the people of Pherae must support her.
HARKEN:   I...am sorry.  But that I cannot promise.
ELIWOOD:  Harken?
HARKEN:   I could not protect Lord Elbert... Were I to lose Lord Eliwood as
          well, what right would I have ever to appear before your lady mother
          again? Should I lose you, I am prepared to lose myself in turn.
ELIWOOD:  Harken!
HARKEN:   You must understand, Lord Eliwood.  your life is precious to all of

HARKEN:   No, nothing of the sort!

HECTOR/ELIWOOD     C RANK     CC003

HECTOR:   Ah, Eliwood! It's good to see you're still well!
ELIWOOD:  Hm.  You expected otherwise?
HECTOR:   No, of course not, I knew you'd be fine.
ELIWOOD:  Hector, wait for a moment.  What did you want?
HECTOR:   Nothing.  It's enough to see that you live and are still fighting.
          Just wanted to make sure you weren't overdoing it with me not around.
ELIWOOD:  I should say the same to you.
HECTOR:   Me? don't worry about me.  I'm fine.  I'm built tough you know.  A
          little too much is just enough for me.  But you, you've never been
          a hardy one, Eliwood.  Nor are you used to travel.  Go on too long,
          and you'll collapse.
ELIWOOD:  We're all weaklings compared to you, Hector. ...Thankfully wars are
          not won by strength alone, eh? We've been sparring once every two
          months since we were twelve, and of the 30 matches, 14 I won, 12 I
          lost, and 4 were draws.
HECTOR:   Erh? I think not! I recall 31 matches--an even 13-13 split, with
          5 draws!
ELIWOOD:  Yes, well, you recall wrong.  I'm in the right.
HECTOR:   Hmph.  And what makes you so certain?
ELIWOOD:  Whoose snoring was it that shook the rafters in numbers class?
HECTOR:   Ah, good point.
ELIWOOD:  ...Still, I'm touched you were worried about me.  Now, back to
          the fray!

COMMENTS: I was snoring during numbers class too, so that average score might

ELIWOOD:  Something, wrong Hector? Was that a yawn I saw? Not the best
          battlefield manners.
HECTOR:   Ah... It's nothing.  Just my dreams lately...
ELIWOOD:  Dreams? What kind of dreams?
HECTOR:   Laugh, and I'll kill you.
ELIWOOD:  ...All right.
HECTOR:   There was this man--a giant with a beard--carrying a girl on his
          shoulders.  The girl called to him "Father," and she was smiling,
          happy.  Then the father said to her, "Yes, my beloved daughter?"
          That's all, really.  But it felt as though... It felt like a
          long-past memory.  The man looked a bit like my own father, I
          suppose.  But who was the little girl? Aye, she was a cute one.
ELIWOOD:  What color was her hair?
HECTOR:   huh.  Blue.
ELIWOOD:  And the man's hair? his moustache?
HECTOR:   His were bluish, too.
ELIWOOD:  Then it is a vision on your own future! A great moustache, eh?
          Ah hah hah!
HECTOR:   Grr... You laughed! Hm.  If that is my future I'm not sure I like it.
ELIWOOD:  Why not?
HECTOR:   The girl that would be my daughter... She gets taken away by this
          boy that appears later.  ...A boy with red hair! Yes, it was red, I'm
          sure of it.
ELIWOOD:  Don't get ahead of yourself! there are plenty of people with
          red hair...
HECTOR:   Quiet! now I'm sure--the boy was a Pheraen.  No matter how close we
          may be, I'll not--I'll not give up my daughter!

HECTOR/ELIWOOD     A RANK     CC003

ELIWOOD:  Hector, you still remember that time?
HECTOR:   What time?
ELIWOOD:  You know, what was it--ten years ago? When the lords of Lycia held
          the oath rites, back in Ostia? "Should one land of Lycia be attacked,
          all will fight at one..." Remember? While our parents were off
          pledging thier oaths, we were kids in that one room.
HECTOR:   Yeah, I remember.  We had to act in a manner befitting the children
          of nobility, or some such nonsense.  I just remember being stuck in
          there, having to sit in that chair talking to whoever was next to me.
          Course, wouldn't you know that Erik of Laus was on my right? Man, I
          heard more than enough sweet talk from that one!
ELIWOOD:  Right, right.  That was the first time any of us met, after all.
          He had no idea who you were--he just wanted to get in favor with a
          lordling of Lycia.
HECTOR:   Aye, he was all mouth anyway.  Saying things like "let us join forces
          for the good of Lycia," and such... then running when things turned
          sour.
ELIWOOD:  Aw, don't be too hard on him.  When he jumped up, yelling about us
          swearing our own oaths, then cut his hand like that... No one else
          knew what to do, either.
HECTOR:   Well, everyone's heard the stories.  They all know it's the warrior's
          custom.  Each cuts his own hand, then shakes hands with his
          brothers... What man wouldn't want to do that? Only one had the guts
          to meet him, though.
ELIWOOD:  ...You know, back then, I'm proud I took your hand.  We are friends,
          sharing a life-dream now, an ambition.  When one is in danger, the
          other risks his life to protect him... That's why you came, isn't it?
          Because you remembered?
HECTOR:   Heh.  I've got no plans to break my oath.  Not now, not ever.
ELIWOOD:  Likewise.
HECTOR:   Well, then lets live long and in health! I don't want to hear any
          excuses about not being able to come help when we're old men.
ELIWOOD:  It's a deal.  ...Stay alive, Hector.
HECTOR:   Deal.  And don't you go dying before me, either.  I'd never forgive
          you.

         stand a chance.
LYNDIS:  My! I see.  I get it.  So you've judged my strength already, then.

OSWIN:   Yes.  I'm afraid my armor saved my skin more than once today.  Take
         care, Lord Hector.
HECTOR:  Say, Oswin.  Sorry to be such a burden, you know?
OSWIN:   Pardon?
HECTOR:  I know it's my brother's orders, but here you're stuck with me.  I
         mean, it must be a drag for you, right? You let me know if there's
         anything I can do for you.
OSWIN:   Well, to tell the truth...When I was assigned to watch over you, Lord
         Hector,  I feared that I might not be worthy of the job.  But I
         realized something over the course of this journey.  While your words
         and manners may be coarse at times, you are straight and true in
         character--like a good arrow.  I thank Lord Uther for giving me the
         opportunity to serve you.  So, believe me that it hasn't been a burden
         at all.
HECTOR:  Oswin... You...You sure...? I mean, that's good, I'm glad.
OSWIN:   Excellent! Then I shall be honored to serve you further.
HECTOR:  I was afraid it might have been me makin' you look like an old man!
OSWIN:   Eh? What was that?
HECTOR:  Ah, er, nothing! Never mind! Um, right! Come along, then! Let's go!

HECTOR:  Yeah?
SERRA:   Isn't there something you'd like to tell me? Really, there's no need
         to hold back.
HECTOR:  Huh? What are you talking about?
SERRA:   Why, your words of thanks, of course!
HECTOR:  Why should I thank you?
SERRA:   You yourself told me, Lord Hector: "Stay in Ostia, someone needs to
         defend the homeland."
HECTOR:  Uh huh.
SERRA:   Yet, I, in my thoughtfulness, have come with you! I've come all the
         way here for you, Lord Hector! I'd take a ...thank you, ... or failing
         that, a bucket of jewels! Anything will do.
HECTOR:  You want me to thank you for disobeying orders? To tell the truth,
         I find it hard to fight with you here!
SERRA:   Really! The nerve of some people! I thought you would be more
         understanding, Lord Hector!
HECTOR:  Understanding of what?
SERRA:   Why, I am the only sister in this army!
HECTOR:  Yeah, that's true, now that you mention it.  Of course, a replacement
         would work just as well...

         the faith?
SERRA:   What? Wait! you're making fun of me in a roundabout way! I never!
         Only someone like you could do such a thing! Can you even imagine the
         many nights I've wet my pillow with tears...
HECTOR:  ...Nope, I can't.
SERRA:   I have been sensitive and delicate since I was born, you know! Not
         that I'd expect you to know that, or care.  It might surprise you to
         know this, but I am of high noble birth!
HECTOR:  Huh? You're right, I didn't know... you some distant relation of one of
         the nobles of Lycia?
SERRA:   No, I am a full-blooded member of an Etrurian count's family.
HECTOR:  What, are you serious!?
SERRA:   Very serious.  You should be calling me "Lady Serra," you know, really.
         But since it's you, Lord Hector, I've been tolerating plain "Serra."
HECTOR:  Hmph, hard to picture...but I guess I'll take your word for it.
         Where's that count's family from?
SERRA:   They are, well, that's what I'm not sure of.
HECTOR:  Hah?
SERRA:   there was all this talk about family status and succession of titles
         and such... My parents decided to put me in an abbey when I was still a
         child.  That's why I don't know the count's name...or what my parents
         were like... But I'm sure they were gentle and beautiful people, both
         of them!
HECTOR:  But you've never met them?
SERRA:   Yes, but look at me, their child! I'm sure you can imagine how striking

HECTOR:  Hey, Serra.  That abbey you lived in was in Ostia, right?
SERRA:   W-Why do... What of it?
HECTOR:  I was thinking, the only abbey left in the land of Ostia right now is
         the one that was rebuilt when my brother was made marquess.
SERRA:   Ah!
HECTOR:  So...that was the place?
SERRA:   Y-Yes...that was where I grew up.  With children who had lost their
         parents in the war, children from poor villages.  It was an orphanage
         for those children, too, you see...
HECTOR:  You know, I visited there once.  Dismal place, it was.  After my
         brother donated money it got a little better, true...
SERRA:   Y-Yes, I suppose... We were always short on food.  The winters were
         cold, with no wood for the fire, and no warm blankets... But I was
         fine, really! I knew it was only temporary! I knew things would get
         better!
HECTOR:  Hey, calm down! No need to shout!
SERRA:   I really am of the bloodline of an Etrurian count's family, I am! I
         just can't meet them right now because of family...family issues! But,
         someday... Someday.  My true parents will come to welcome me back.
HECTOR:  ... ...
SERRA:   My mother and father are truly kind people, who thought often of me,
         alone in the abbey... I..I'm sure of it! It has to be true.
HECTOR:  Serra...

HECTOR:  Yeah, about that purse.  I heard about the going price for Ilian
         mercenaries from a henchman...
FARINA:  ...Eh?
HECTOR:  Usually, they get paid by the battle, with no bonuses or anything.
         And...he said 20,000 gold is way, way too much.
FARINA:  But...
HECTOR:  Payment is determined by rank within the knightly order, right? At
         your level of ability, I'd say you're worth 2,000 gold, tops.
FARINA:  Never! I'm at 4,000 gold, I am!

          didn't know what to think about your noble Lycian blood, but the

          Remember how you felt. You don't have to be like anyone else, Lyndis.

         stronger than I thought.
LYNDIS:  Why, thank you, Hector.  For me, losing to you was a good lesson in my
         limits.
HECTOR:  ...Um, are you listening to me?
LYNDIS:  I'm busy right now.  I'm learning some new lunge and thrust patterns.
HECTOR:  Yeah, I thought you were standing different.  What is that lunge used
         for?
LYNDIS:  They say it's good against axemen in heavy armor.
HECTOR:  Wait, that's me! You got something personal against me, Lyn? We're
         friends, right?
LYNDIS:  Of course we are.  But this...this is about me, my limits.  I can't
         be a burden to either you or Eliwood right now.  I can fight.  And I
         will get stronger.

HECTOR:  Lyn.
LYNDIS:  Hector...
HECTOR:  Say, Lyn... You remember when we first met?
LYNDIS:  I do, I remember it well.  It was when Caelin Castle was taken by Lord
         Laus.  My grandfather had been taken prisoner.  And you and Eliwood
         came to the rescue.  Then, together, we fought the armies of Laus.
HECTOR:  Lyn.  Why are we together now?
LYNDIS:  Well...
HECTOR:  Because we're friends, right? Say if you were much stronger than I
         was... Would that make me useless to you?
LYNDIS:  No... Of course not.
HECTOR:  Fighting isn't everything on this journey, you know.  If fighting was
         everything, what use would we have of Merlinus?
LYNDIS:  Well, I suppose...
HECTOR:  You are strong.  I can vouch for that.  Just, I was stronger.
LYNDIS:  Hah!
HECTOR:  W-What!?
LYNDIS:  You're too much-- Saying that kind of thing with a straight face.
HECTOR:  You gotta problem with my face? I've just gotta be me, you know...
LYNDIS:  Yes, I know. ...Thanks.  I didn't think you cared so much about how I
         felt.  Or is Hector gentler at heart than Hector looks?  You've
         certainly done much for my courage today.


HECTOR:  Hmph... I'm not this way to just anyone, you know...
LYNDIS:  What?
HECTOR:  A-Ah! The enemy! Let's go, Lyn! Don't lag behind!

FLORINA:  You shouldn't force yourself, though.  I'm sure that Lord Hausen

LYNDIS:   Please, Florina-- Don't... I, too, thought it was the way we had to be

          have to do with anything? I'm still myself, and you're still you!
          Please, talk to me normally, like you always used to.
FLORINA:  Lyndis...Lyn...I...I'm sorry.  I had no idea you felt that way...
LYNDIS:   I do, and someday when I return to the plains... Come with me, won't

LYNDIS:  What disaster?
RATH:    Can't say.  ...But the diviner did tell me I would know when the time

WALLACE:  The bandits that used to live in the Taliver Mountains... They are
          no more.  I destroyed the bandits of Taliver.
LYNDIS:   ...Why!? Why did you do such a thing!? The bandits of Taliver were my
          enemies! They were mine to...
WALLACE:  ...Lady Lyndis.  I killed them--but not for revenge.  I want you to be
          happy... I wanted the single daughter of Lord Hassar and
          Lady Madelyn... ...to be happy.
LYNDIS:   ... ...
WALLACE:  Lady Lyndis.  If you truely wished revenge upon them, you should be
          happy.  Hatred can be strength.  On the plains, you needed that
          strength to survive.  But left too long, hatred can twist and consume
          you.
LYNDIS:   ... ...
WALLACE:  The blood of your parents flows in your veins.  That you live must
          bring them no end of joy.  But for you to be filled with such hate...
          Is this what your parents would have wished for?
LYNDIS:   But...But I... ... ...
WALLACE:  My words now might not reach you, I know that.  Still, Lady Lyndis,
          listen: I pray that your heart will not be clouded.  For you have the
          clear eyes of your mother, and in clarity lies beauty.

SERRA:    Well, first of all, they would have to call me Lady Serra... And

OSWIN:    What do you mean, Matthew?
MATTHEW:  We are men of Ostia, aren't we? Our young master is risking his life
          for the sake of his friends, but if you think about what is best for
          Ostia...
OSWIN:    ...Hmm. I agree. But Hector's not one to change his mind once it's

MATTHEW:  I'm sorry?
OSWIN:    Hector may not walk the right path. The path of Eliwood may be the
          right one, but maybe our Hector can win people with his
          inventiveness. By not walking the clear path, he always forges new
          ones... In that, he has great skill.
MATTHEW:  You would say so much, Oswin? What has come over you?

          to see his good qualities hindered.
MATTHEW:  Hmm, I see.
OSWIN:    But...you will never tell Hector what I have just said. It is...not

MATTHEW/LEGAULT     A RANK     CC028

LEGAULT:  Hm? What, you again? More questions for me? No one trusts me. Even
          after all that rambling I did earlier.
MATTHEW:  There's one other important thing I haven't asked you. Why did you
          betray the Black Fang?
LEGAULT:  ...... Do I really have to go into all of this?
MATTHEW:  ......
LEGAULT:  ...OK, I see. I like the Black Fang the way it used to be. The
          commander was a father figure, Lloyd, Linus, Jan, and Uhai... There
          was nothing to be suspicious of then. We believed in our own
          righteousness. We can't go back... Back to the good old days. You
          understand, right? Right?
MATTHEW:  ......
LEGAULT:  Sonia's arrival was the beginning of the end. The change came
          slowly... The Fang rotted away bit by bit. And it was all the doing
          of one creepy villain, Nergal... The Fang changed. And as it changed,
          so did our work.
MATTHEW:  ......
LEGAULT:  Those who had no taste for killing, the wounded who couldn't work...
          We started receiving orders to kill these innocents, too. So... I was
          ordered by some stranger to kill a wounded companion of mine. Her
          name was Aesha. A woman I'd work with for years.
MATTHEW:  ......
LEGAULT:  She'd made a mistake, and her wound cost her her skill at killing.
          Her career as an assassin was over. But she shouldn't have to die for
          that. She could have lived in some village somewhere... She should
          have had many days of happiness ahead of her... But......
MATTHEW:  ......
LEGAULT:  I, with this hand, I...took her life. That's when it started. That's
          when I started thinking about getting out.
MATTHEW:  ......
LEGAULT:  That's it. You satisfied?
MATTHEW:  ...Uhm... Legault?
LEGAULT:  Mm?
MATTHEW:  I'm sorry.
LEGAULT:  What's this? Hearing you say that just made my day.
MATTHEW:  Don't get the wrong idea. I don't trust you any more than before.
          But... Everyone's got a place in their hearts that they don't want to
          touch. ...That's it.
LEGAULT:  Eh... Matthew, you're a good kid. It's a shame to waste you as a spy.
MATTHEW:  Oh, shut up.

         that no one dies in this battle.  Please grant me speed to heal my
         allies' wounds.  And, um, what else...
OSWIN:   ......
SERRA:   I want Hector to give me a lot of gold, and I want to get all the
         good food and only ever have to do the fun jobs, and I want a servant
         who does whatever I say, and everyone should worship me and give me
         things, add...uhh...
OSWIN:   This is an unorthodox prayer.  Does it go on much longer?
SERRA:   Lord Oswin!? Ohhh... Were you listening that whole time?
OSWIN:   I have orders for you from Lord Hector.  You must join the healers on
         the front line...
SERRA:   What!? You're joking.
OSWIN:   Joking?
SERRA:   you want me to be right up in the front, where all the swords and axes
         and spears are? Why should I be up there?
OSWIN:   ...In a normal fight, you wouldn't.  But this time's different.
         Lord Hector and Lord Eliwood are on the front line.  If we, their
         retainers, do not help them, then what are we? Perhaps you
         convinced Hector to go easy on you last time? Not this time.
         Go to the front lines and do as you are told.

SERRA:  For my efforts... Because I'm trying so hard, right? I was out
        healing on the front lines and everything earlier. You saw how
        good I was, healing all our troops! And, and, and...
OSWIN:  Quiet, child. What you did was no more then expected.
SERRA:  What?
OSWIN:  It is your duty to heal those who are hurt. And any evaluation of
        your own success is trivial.
SERRA:  What does that mean?
OSWIN:  Your words and actions are bad for morale. I ask you as a fellow
        Ostian, behave yourself.
SERRA:  Wh-What? Has someone been saying bad things about me? It's just
        jealousy, I tell you!

RATH:  ...
GUY:   Wah! Say, you look like you come from Sacae...
RATH:  ... What's your name?
GUY:   Warrior Guy, of the Kutolah tribe!
RATH:  The Kutolah?
GUY:   Yes! One of the three tribes of Sacae! Led by the Silver Wolf, Lord
       Dayan himself!
RATH:  ...I'm Rath.
GUY:   Rath? Say, Rath...you...you aren't Kutolah, too, are you?
RATH:  ...
GUY:   Our chieftan had a son named Rath, you see. He left the tribe when I was
       young, so I don't know what he looks like...
RATH:  ...Come.
GUY:   Eh?
RATH:  You're lost, aren't you? ...Follow me.
GUY:   You'll help me? Really? For free?
RATH:  How could I leave a fellow tribesman?

RATH:  ...
GUY:   Rath? Rath!?
RATH:  ...I'm listening. What do you want?
GUY:   Is Lady Lyn a Sacaen, too? I kind of got the feeling from the clothes
       she wears... And she kind of walks like us, wouldn't you say?
RATH:  Aye, she's from Sacae. She's the daughter of the Lorca chieftan.
GUY:   The Lorca? Never heard of them. But what's she doing with these Lycian
       lords?
RATH:  ...
GUY:   C'mon. You were traveling with her a year ago, weren't you? Didn't you
       hear anything?
RATH:  ...Lyn is of our people. No matter what she chooses to do, that fact
       would not change.
GUY:   ...Yes. Yes, you're right. A Sacae warrior proudly defends his own.
RATH:  You...
GUY:   Yes?
RATH:  Why did you leave the tribe?
GUY:   To become a great soldier of Sacae! I was never good with the bow, and,
       frankly, I'm terrible at hunting... But the chieftan told me I had a
       good sword arm.
RATH:  ...
GUY:   So I'm traveling and training to grow stronger! I must defend my tribe,
       and my mother as best as I can.
RATH:  I...see.

LOUISE:  I have traveled far and wide with Count Pent before, but I have never
         been to Sacae. Those vast plains and warm, dry winds... It sounds like
         a place of wonderful freedom. I understand people live like families
         in their tribes.
GUY:     ...Yes. My tribe is my family.
LOUISE:  Guy, why did you leave your home?
GUY:     I wanted to master the art of the sword. The warriors of Kutolah only
         ride horses and shoot bows. That is fine for some, but I far prefer
         the feel of a hilt in my hand. So I just decided, "From this day forth,
         I'm a swordsman!" And I left my tribe and began my training. That was
         three years ago.
LOUISE:  Three years, you say? Don't you miss your family, traveling alone all
         this time?
GUY:     Surely you jest! I am a proud warrior of Sacae!
LOUISE:  Hmmf. That you are, most certainly.
GUY:     I will become a grand knight! But until that day comes, I will not
         return home!
LOUISE:  Then I wish you luck ...Indeed. What kind of person is your mother?
GUY:     You know... The usual. She is not beautiful and refined like you,
         though...
LOUISE:  But surely she is a fine woman.
GUY:     Why do you say that?
LOUISE:  Well, it's easy to see. She has raised such a fine son. If only Lord
         Pent and I could have children... We would love to see them grow
         strong and brave like you, Guy.
GUY:     Hey... Stop treating me like a child!
LOUISE:  Hahaha. Forgive me. ...But, Guy... You do think of your mother
         sometimes, don't you?
GUY:     Well, I...

ERK:        Lady Priscilla, might I have a word?
PRISCILLA:  What is it, Erk?
ERK:        It has been long since you left Etruria... Is your family not
            worried for you?
PRISCILLA:  Yes, I suppose they are... But now that Lord Eliwood is looking out
            for me... I think I shall stay here a while longer.
ERK:        Understood. If that is what you wish, I have no complaints.
PRISCILLA:  Thank you, Erk. By the way...
ERK:        Yes?
PRISCILLA:  About your former employer... Was it...a woman?
ERK:        Eh? Ah, yes, she was. She certainly thought of herself as one.
PRISCILLA:  She was young?
ERK:        To look at her, she was no younger than you or I, Lady Priscilla.
            But I'm afraid she was no where near as mature. But why do you ask?
            It's not something I like to think of much...
PRISCILLA:  No... No particular reason. It was just something on my mind.
            Perhaps... Were you...and...um, your employer...close?
ERK:        Hardly! If that was a jest, I fail to see the humor! It makes me
            shiver just to think of it...
PRISCILLA:  Really?
ERK:        Of course!
PRISCILLA:  I see. That's fine, then... I had no particular reason for asking,

PRISCILLA:  Erk, I'd like to thank you for your service.
ERK:        Eh?
PRISCILLA:  I hired you to protect me... And your contract ends today.
ERK:        Eh? Ah...now that you mention it, I suppose it does. But, what do
            you plan to do now, Lady Priscilla?
PRISCILLA:  I...am in debt to Lord Eliwood. I intend to follow him until his
            expedition is ended.
ERK:        Perhaps, you might extend my contract...?
PRISCILLA:  No... Regretfully, I cannot. I left on this journey without my

OSWIN:      Forgive me, milady. I am Oswin, of the Ostian Knights. I fight in
            this army at the side of Lord Hector.
PRISCILLA:  Pray, how do you know of me?
OSWIN:      Yes, well... For a time, I was posted with the knights at Cornwell.
            I saw you many times during my stay. This was some time ago,
            however.
PRISCILLA:  Is that so? Then you must forgive me.
OSWIN:      No, m'lady. You were too young to remember... You stood at the
            marquess's side, always holding your brother's sleeve. ...You were
            the closest of siblings...

OSWIN:      Have you heard...about House Cornwell?
PRISCILLA:  Yes. It was accused of stealing funds from the alliance and
            censured by the council of lords, stripped of its peerage.
OSWIN:      ...Yes. It is true.
PRISCILLA:  My real family gave me up, and now they have given up their castle.
            No one knows where they are. I probably shouldn't be asking you

OSWIN:      ...Lady Priscilla.
PRISCILLA:  ......
OSWIN:      ...Forgive me.
PRISCILLA:  ...Why do you apologize?
OSWIN:      I should never have told you about your parents.
PRISCILLA:  When they were divested of their peerage...my mother and
            father...took their own lives. You only told me...what I asked to
            hear. Lord Oswin, you are not to blame.
OSWIN:      ......
PRISCILLA:  But...I wanted to ask my father one thing. Why...did he...have to
            steal?
OSWIN:      My lord, Uther of Ostia, investigated the matter. He...entrusted
            me...with some details. In recent years, the Cornwell fortune had
            begun to decline. Marquess Cornwell, in acts of kindness, had
            assumed the debts of many close to him. When he could not pay his
            own debts, the wolves came out.
PRISCILLA:  But...if it was a matter of money, why couldn't they ask my adopted
            family, the Caerleons?
OSWIN:      The amount they stole was...far greater than they owed. Your
            parents did not want to involve the daughter they had sent away.
PRISCILLA:  Father... ...Mo...ther......
OSWIN:      ......
PRISCILLA:  ...Lord Oswin... ......I... I...will be fine... There is no need
            to stay at my side...away from your charge...
OSWIN:      Lord Hector...gave me leave to come. I must express my regret for
            what our Ostia has done to House Cornwell. The marquess did commit
            a grave crime. But the vilest sin was the issue of the order...that
            caused so much grief. If he had stayed alive, perhaps much calamity
            could have been avoided.
PRISCILLA:  ...No matter what we say, the dead will not return... But as long
            as I will live, I will remember that you...that Ostia...were honest
            and just...

PRISCILLA:  But...
HEATH:      I remember when I was in the wyvern kngihts of Bern, my captain

LOWEN:    Rebecca!
REBECCA:  Ah... Hello, sire.  Are you well?

LOWEN:    No, Rebecca, ...I am not.  I am a mere soldier, undecorated and
          unlauded.  To be honest, I am no more than an attendant knight.
REBECCA:  Oh, but that's absurd! Sir Lowen, you are a fine knight! Why, I
          remember it so well... Countless hundreds of bandits had descended
          on our village...
LOWEN:    Please... There were ten at most...
REBECCA:  In the heat of the moment, it felt like many more!
LOWEN:    Hmm...
REBECCA:  Anyway, just as their fiendish grip on our village began to tighten,
          you appeared, Sir Lowen, on your white steed...
LOWEN:    But...my horse is sorrel.
REBECCA:  This is the way I prefer to remember it, milord.  Please don't ruin
          it by correcting me!
LOWEN:    Hmm...
REBECCA:  So you appeared astride your mighty steed to save us from the
          bandits, and I was overcome with joy...

REBECCA:  Sir Lowen!
LOWEN:    Rebecca? How did you find me here?
REBECCA:  Oh, that was easy! I asked Marcus, and he told me right away! How are
          you feeling today, Sir Lowen?
LOWEN:    I am full of vigor! If only my skill matched my enthusiasm today.
          Lord Marcus reprimanded me several times during our march.
REBECCA:  Yes, I saw that. Lord Marcus is a bit severe, isn't he?
LOWEN:    No, not at all! It is more than I deserve for my incompetence! My
          spear arm is still unsteady, and I must sadly wonder if I will ever
          be of use to this army.
REBECCA:  How can you say that? Sir Lowen, you are so commanding in the saddle!
LOWEN:    For now, I'm nothing but an inconvenience to Lord Eliwood! I must
          become stronger! Beginning today, I will triple the number of my
          practice spear thrusts!
REBECCA:  You... You're shouting. You know...I really think you try hard enough
          already. Here, take this... In grattitude for saving my village.
LOWEN:    What is this?
REBECCA:  I preserved some home-cooked meals for you to eat in the field. They
          should supplement your emergency rations nicely, Sir Lowen.
LOWEN:    How did you know about my emergency rations? Have you asked a
          fortune-teller about me, or...
REBECCA:  Lord Marcus told me.
LOWEN:    Ah, yes! Of course he did! Lord Marcus!! How is it that you know
          everything!? ...Regardless, thank you, Rebecca.
REBECCA:  Sure, and I'll bring plenty more!

KENT:   Lord Heath... Forgive my impertinence, but I must ask you something.
        Why did you have to leave the knights of Bern?
HEATH:  ...Well, that is impertinent...
KENT:   Forgive me. But as the commander of Caelin's knights, it is my duty to
        test the loyalty of any new recruit, to learn about his past...
HEATH:  What!? You are the commander? You are quite...young.
KENT:   Lord Heath, please help me to understand. The wyvern riders of Bern
        are considered to be the strongest knights in the land. Surely we Lycian
        knights would fall to their lances if we met them head on... So why
        would you leave Bern for Lycia?
HEATH:  ...Bern is not as it once was. Our sovereign has imprisoned all those
        nobles who do not meet his favor. And their fabled power is a feeble
        joke. The only real strength of Bern's knights these days is in their
        boasting. And their general is good for nothing but wagging his tail
        at the king.
KENT:   .....
HEATH:  There was an uprising on our frontier, a rebellion of sorts. The knights
        were ordered to put it down and kill the rebels. Our commander went to
        scout out the enemy camp. This "uprising" was nothing more than a group
        of unarmed peasants.
KENT:   I see...
HEATH:  Then I heard the truth from our commander. One of our generals had
        drummed up a fake rebellion to enhance his military career. These people
        did not want to fight. They ran at the mere sight of us. Then, the
        famous wyvern riders of Bern rained savage death down upon these
        innocents.
KENT:   .....
HEATH:  My unit tried to stop them. We were all condemned to die for our
        treason. However, our general spread the story that we were to be
        hanged for slaughtering innocent lives. Before they could round us up,
        we decided to turn our coats and run. One of us stayed behind as a
        decoy, and the rest fled for the border. After that, we dispersed. All
        have been killed now, except for me. Are you satisfied now?
KENT:   ...I see. So, Bern...
HEATH:  Bern is nothing to me... I have no love for a country that slaughters
        its own. Kent, what about your liege? Would you give your life in this
        lord's service?
KENT:   Yes. It is a knight's honor to swear his fealty and his life. My
        happiness is to serve.

DORCAS:  I don't have the freedom to worry about such abstract concerns. Only

GEITZ:   Maybe so. Yeah, maybe you're right. I was born into a rich family. I'm

OSWIN:   Why, to protect good Ostia in this armor, of course! This cold steel

          Never quit a mission that you have already accepted... We don't just

LUCIUS:  Ah! How did you know?
RAVEN:   Just look at your face! It's about the revenge on Ostia, isn't it?
LUCIUS:  Y-Yes... Is...is there no way your heart can be changed?
RAVEN:   If I wanted to change how I felt, I wouldn't be here.
LUCIUS:  The marquess of Cornwell and his wife... They were very important to
          me... I feel such sadness when I think they are gone...yet still!
RAVEN:   Settling this grudge will not bring them back.  Should we bury Hector
         to spite Ostia, that would just give rise to more hate.
LUCIUS:  If you understand, then why do you proceed? Tell me...why?
RAVEN:   Two summers have passed since the house of Cornwell was destroyed.  You
         tell me to forget the crime that was committed.  Have the teachings of

RAVEN:   Yes... I was so distraught at the time... I believed the rumors without

         inside me...

           need someone for lance practice!

VAIDA:     Merlinus.
MERLINUS:  Uwaa!
VAIDA:     You were telling the truth just now, weren't you? Because, you
           should know, I am highly agitated right now... If you were lying to

       five years ago, but it didn't go too well. Last time I saw him was back
       in Badon...
DART:  Five years ago? In Badon, you say...
WIL:   That's right.
DART:  ... Naw...couldn't be...
WIL:   What? Do you know something?
DART:  ...Well, about five years ago, Fargus pulled into port at Badon, and a
       young man had collapsed on the pier... He was bleeding pretty badly...
       They say it was a miracle he lived at all.
WIL:   What!!
DART:  Everyone in town just pretended not to notice... And no wonder... That
       day was a holy day for Elimine's flock. They were forbidden any contact
       with blood... And the sailors... Well, you know how superstitious they
       are... That man lay there, half alive, for six hours...
WIL:   That's terrible...
DART:  Then the taboo lifted, and someone picked him up, just in time... ...It
       was the leader of the pirates that work out of Badon. Well, that young
       man recovered, but as if in exchange for his life, he had lost all of his
       memories...
WIL:   Dart, you don't think...
DART:  I don't know, I don't know... ...It's just a story I've heard around...

HEATH:    You know the answer to that without asking, don't you? I'm a deserter
          from the knights of Bern.
LEGAULT:  A deserter... So why'd you desert?
HEATH:    Who knows... Maybe the plundering, the wholesale slaughter of innocent

HEATH:    Looks like you're still alive.
LEGAULT:  Can't complain.
HEATH:    Legault, what is it that you want from me?
LEGAULT:  Hmm... One reason is self-interest. Whether I'm working in this army
          or I'm dodging Black Fang pursuers, it makes sense to have a wyvern
          rider close at hand. Few soldiers can match your ferocity on the field.
          Of course, it does complicate matters that you are pursued.
HEATH:    I imagine so. I'm being hunted by my homeland. There's a price on my
          head. Being close to me isn't like lying in a bed of roses.
LEGAULT:  The same is true of me as well. Many of the Black Fang would see me
          dead if they could. Look, why don't we help each other out? Lend a
          hand dealing with our respective foes?
HEATH:    My enemy is the strongest army division on the continent. No matter
          how you look at it, I'd say you're getting the short end of the stick.
          Why would you agree to do all that for me?
LEGAULT:  Hm? Must be this thing called "love", you know?

ISADORA:  The Black Fang assassins... What are they like?
LEGAULT:  Huh?
ISADORA:  I want to know so that I'm not surprised in battle. These assassins...
          What techniques do they--
LEGAULT:  Wrapped in black robes, with blades of ice... A movement in the

ISADORA:  Is it incorrect?
LEGAULT:  Yeah, sorry to say, but it's nothing that exotic. Well, there was one

          Lloyd and Linus? Watching them work was like watching master artisans.

LEGAULT:  That's what I mean, you're overestimating me... As a rule, assassins

ISADORA:  Weak...
LEGAULT:  Yep. They use darkness to catch their targets unaware, use poison,
          work in groups... They can't win if they fight fair, so they use
          trickery. In a fair and open duel, a knight would crush an assassin.
ISADORA:  I wonder if that's true.
LEGAULT:  What? Are you nervous?
ISADORA:  ...I've confidence in the techniques I practiced as a knight in
          Pherae, but you cannot predict what will occur in real battle.
LEGAULT:  I think I see what you mean. You knights have to follow rules and
          win fair and square. But your enemies are not so constrained.
          That's rough.

ISADORA:  Why is that?
LEGAULT:  This place... it's comfortable. It kind of reminds me of the old
          Black Fang.
ISADORA:  This army reminds you of the Black Fang?
LEGAULT:  Yep. Don't believe me? The old Fang was filled with vagrants and
          misfits. The commander would teach them how to live. Of course,
          being an assassin's not a job to brag about, but everyone had a
          kind of pride in what they were. They could at least say that they
          were right. That what they did wasn't wrong.
ISADORA:  .....
LEGAULT:  But look at the Fang now. It's tough to make things go right. Tough...
ISADORA:  That's how the Fang was? It looks like I misunderstood all of you.
LEGAULT:  I'm glad you see that. By the way, do you have a man?
ISADORA:  Wha-- What are you... This is so...
LEGAULT:  You do, don't you? Too bad. All this training you do is fine, but
          from time to time think about your love. We are all--and this
          includes you knights, too--human. Living just for battle seems
          pretty sad, you know? It'll do you good to think about other things
          once in a while.
ISADORA:  Yes, I agree... Thank you, Master Legault.

FIORA:  Oh, wait up! Geitz, please!
GEITZ:  You again. If you've brought more thanks, tell it to my fath-- that
        frozen old man. I'd not waste your breath on that abusive monster.
FIORA:  You hate your father, don't you? Why? He was such a good man.
GEITZ:  ..... Have you ever heard of a boat called a galley?
FIORA:  No, I haven't.
GEITZ:  Most boats use wind power to sail, right? You can move quickly with
        the wind, but you can't move against it. Well, a galley is a boat moved
        by people rowing oars. It's good for keeping a shipping schedule
        regardless of the wind.
FIORA:  And that's...
GEITZ:  Yes, my father used his profits to hire many rowers. They spent their
        days in the stifling hold of the ship, slaving like beasts. When they
        collapsed with exhaustion, my father just tossed them overboard.
FIORA:  .....
GEITZ:  As a child, I loved riding on my father's boat. I respected my father,
        whom everyone called master. But one day, I ventured into the hold of
        the ship. I saw those broken men rowing, like lost souls in hell.
        I saw...children... who were my age...
FIORA:  .....
GEITZ:  I felt as if I were responsible... The boat in which I was riding...
        devoured children's souls. I realized this, and the thought almost
        killed me...
FIORA:  ....
GEITZ:  After that...I have had no love for my father...

GEITZ:  Mm?
FIORA:  What will you do after this? Are you going back to the merchant guild
        of Bulgar?
GEITZ:  Never. I would strangle those men if we were in the same room.
        My brother, Geese, will probably take over the guild. I will likely
        live as a mercenary somewhere...
FIORA:  Yes... That might be best. The merchant's life would not suit you...
GEITZ:  ...Bah! Watch your tongue, woman!!

        be like them!

WIL:      Oh, great... If it isn't Mr. "Manual of Knightly Prowess"! I

WALLACE:  Kent.
KENT:     It is an honor to serve with you again! Where have you travelled
          since we parted last year? We didn't know where you had gone, and
          Lady Lyndis became rather worried.
WALLACE:  Hm? Oh, er... Yes, well... I just...wandered about.  I felt that I
          had lost some of my former strength, so I tried to train myself back
          into shape.
KENT:     I see...
WALLACE:  And you... Have you kept up your training?
KENT:     Rest assured.  I train hard every day.
WALLACE:  Lady Lyndis seems to have settled into her new role nicely.  She has
          acquired the air of a noblewoman.
KENT:     Yes, she truly is... a remarkable person.
WALLACE:  I had not seen her in a long time... But she looks more like Lady
          Madelyn every day...
KENT:     Now that you mention it... When Lady Madelyn eloped 17 years ago,
          you were already in the knight brigade, weren't you?
WALLACE:  Yes.  I knew both Lady Madelyn and Hassar.
KENT:     Lord Hassar... Lady Lyndis's father?
WALLACE:  Yes.  He was my good friend.  He was tight-lipped like all men of
          Sacae, but... He had the same deep, honest eyes as Lady Lyndis.

WALLACE/KENT     B RANK     CC053

KENT:     When Lady Lyndis's parents eloped, I heard that Lord Hausen became
          terribly angry...
WALLACE:  Yes.  He was usually warm and kind, but his demeanor changed entirely
          when it came to Lady Madelyn's welfare.  I was ordered to bring them
          both back.  I was told to resort to force against Hassar if he
          resisted.
KENT:     That is quite a shock... I cannot imagine such an order from our kind
          lord now...
WALLACE:  I accepted my orders and set out to find them... Lady Madelyn was not
          accustomed to hard travel, and I found them soon... But I could not
          take them.
KENT:     Why is that?
WALLACE:  They both said the same thing.  Each said, "I am to blame.  Do not
          harm the other."
KENT:     ......
WALLACE:  In the end, I closed my eyes and let them cross the border... I told
          the marquess that they eluded me.
KENT:     You disobeyed an order from your liege?!
WALLACE:  ...Yes, and I spent six months in the dungeon for it... Considering
          his anger at the time, he was probably being lenient with me.
KENT:     But why did you do it? I can certainly understand it must have been
          a hard order to follow, but... to disobey your lord is unthinkable
          for a knight...
WALLACE:  So it is.  But what would you have done? Would you have dragged Lady
          Madelyn back to the castle, ending their chance for love? She might
          have taken her own life if faced with such grief.  And Lady Lyndis
          would never have been born...
KENT:     No...
WALLACE:  When the marquess fell ill last year, Lundgren seized power in Caelin.
          What would you have done then? Would you have served Lundgren because
          you had sworn fealty to Caelin?
KENT:     ......
WALLACE:  For knights in the service of a lord, an order is absolute.  But a
          knight does not follow orders blindly.  before obeying, a knight
          should always consider whether the order serves the lord who gives it.

KENT:     It is all thanks to your training, Lord Wallace! By the way, m'lord...
WALLACE:  Yes?
KENT:     Lord Hausen thanked you after the fact, did he not? So your
          disobedience was in fact...prudent.  I do not know how I could follow
          such an example... I have long believed that a knight owed blind
          obedience to his lord... However... I... How do you know? How do you
          know what your loyalty truly requires of you?
WALLACE:  Kent.  You must decide for yourself.
KENT:     I must decide...? But...
WALLACE:  My disobedience was actually in setting out to do the thing I knew was
          wrong.  I knew this before I even set out to recover Lady Madelyn.
          Loyalty to one's lord is like love itself.  So long as you keep the
          love of your lord in your heart, your loyalty never truly wavers.
          Wouldn't you agree?
KENT:     Yes... Certainly, it is as you say.  Thank you, Lord Wallace.  I still
          have so much to learn from you.  Please, continue to instruct me
          always...

CANAS:  Afternoon, Lord Pent!
PENT:   Here is the book I borrowed.  It was truly fascinating!
CANAS:  I am glad it pleased you.
PENT:   I have collected a great number of books on elder magic, and I thought
        I had read them all... But to find one of such high quality that I did
        not know of...
CANAS:  ...I do believe this is the last surviving copy of this book.  ...As I
        told you before... Knowledge of the ancient magics has been passed down
        in our family for generations... Even this book...was to be passed to
        one of my three brothers.
PENT:   And all three are now dead!! Good Lord, man, you must be...
CANAS:  Oh, no! They are alive! But...barely.  They merely subsist... As you
        know, elder magic is based on the forces of darkness... It is even more
        powerful than nature magic, which is often called anima.  But to use
        this magic, you must invite the dark forces within you.  The temptation
        to submit to the darkness is...great.  ...Unfortunately, the darkness
        took my brothers... They live...and breathe... their eyes open and
        close... But...they do not move.  And they do not speak.
PENT:   ......
CANAS:  There is no guarantee that I will not join them... ......Truthfully, it
        scares me... However, I must see the other side.  My curiosity pushes me
        even deeper.  It will be my undoing.
PENT:   This is the course of knowledge.  I am the same way...
CANAS:  I knew you would understand.  If it pleases you, keep that book.
PENT:   I cannot do that.  It is an important part of your family history!
CANAS:  Yes, but it was written by my mother.  If I ask her, she will write it
        again...
PENT:   ...Unbelieveable.  Are you telling me that this book was written by
        someone still alive!? Your mother... How could...
CANAS:  Her name is Niime.  She is an odd character.  She is known to some as
        the Mountain Hermit...
PENT:   Canas! You are the son of Niime!?
CANAS:  ...You know of her?
PENT:   Every mage knows of Niime the hermit!! ...So you are the hermit's
        child... That is...remarkable...
CANAS:  What is the matter?
PENT:   You must excuse me! My lady wife, Louise, will never believe this!

LOUISE:   ...So, dear, why do you feel you need my help? You are already so very
          charming just as you are!
REBECCA:  Charming is not enough! I want to be graceful and elegant like you,
          Louise!
LOUISE:   May I trouble you to ask why?
REBECCA:  There's...someone I fancy.  But I'm just a rough country girl... I
          think maybe he doesn't see me as a refined lady...
LOUISE:   ...Rebecca, manners and carriage alone do not make one a lady.
          Certainly, I had to learn the ways of the court... But my husband,
          Lord Pent, did not marry me for those.
REBECCA:  Do you mean that?
LOUISE:   Haha... I do! I was 14... about your age now, I believe? Count Reglay
          had gathered as many as 20 women to consider...
REBECCA:  Twenty women!?
LOUISE:   Before Lord Pent would see them, each had to exhibit a special skill.
          Everyone was eager to demonstrate the qualities of a good wife...
          And...I was one of those women trying so hard to impress him.  They
          were all highborn ladies of Etruria.  They sang, danced, played music,
          and composed poetry... And I could not have outdone them in any of
          those arts...
REBECCA:  So...then...how did he come to choose you?
LOUISE:   ...I said to Lord Pent, "My skill is with the bow." And then...
          "My sweet lord, if you shoose me, I will protect you to life's end."
REBECCA:  No...way!
LOUISE:   My face as flushed after I spoke, and the room filled with laughter.
          ...I could feel their scorn, as if to say "foolish girl!" But one of
          them...smiled.  And he looked down at me with the kindest eyes... It
          was...Lord Pent.
REBECCA:  ......
LOUISE:   "I have never met a girl whose heart was so clear, Louise," he said,
          and he then took my hand.  ...I felt like I was being lifted into
          heaven... So, dear Rebecca... Instead of doubting yourself... Show the
          one you love your true heart.  Don't underestimate yourself.  You are
          one of the loveliest girls I have ever seen.  I give you my word.
REBECCA:  Lady Louise... Thank you! I'll do my best!

         I've even renovated your room! Since I know how you like to study, I've

         and said, "This is my student." You were only 12... You had such deep,
         purple eyes, sparkling with intelligence...
ERK:     L-Lady Louise, now is really not the time for such old memories...
LOUISE:  Hush... Listen.  Lord Pent had only just become a mage general then...
         and he was hardly ever home in the castle.  I was so happy to have such
         a cute young student around.  But that student shut himself away in his
         room all the time... just reading his books.  He didn't eat, he hardly
         slept, and soon, he collapsed.
ERK:     I... I remember...
LOUISE:  That's right.  You never let anyone do nice things for you, and then
         you just fall apart! But I realized as I nursed you back to health...
         You thought of us as total strangers... You always spurn those who try
         to help you most...
ERK:     N-No, that's not true! I could never think of you... of you or Lord Pent
         as strangers! ...But your love for me is so strong... Sometimes...it
         scares me, and I feel...paralyzed.
LOUISE:  Erk, loving another person gives you the greatest joy and energy! You
         are so precious to us.  From the time we met, we have all lived as a
         family... Isn't that enough for you?
ERK:     ...Yes.  It is.  You two are also... precious...to me.

DART:   Well, it's like this... Out on the Western Isles, there's a stone giant
        that men call Kelles.  He's thrice the size of the tallest man, and he
        can swallow you whole, from your head to your--
KAREL:  He's dead.

KAREL:  ...Next.
DART:   Wait...I just remembered... There's a mage in Ilia who has the power to
        freeze your blood in its veins.  He found an ancient ice tome that--
KAREL:  Yeah, he's dead, too.  About a month ago.

DART:   Hey, it's you again!
KAREL:  ......
DART:   You wanted to know about the strongest warriors in the land, right?
KAREL:  I did, and still do.  But those whom I have met did not strike me as
        being very strong at all.
DART:   Well, I remembered a bunch more.  'Cause you know, I felt like I hadn't
        given you your money's worth.
KAREL:  Out with it.
DART:   But hold on.  I was hoping you could help me out, too.  I am looking for
        a certain treasure in Elibe.  If you know anything, please tell me.
KAREL:  I'll tell you what I know.
DART:   All right then, you've got a deal.  Have you ever heard of the Princess
        of Swords?
KAREL:  No.
DART:   Really? Well, she's supposed to be gorgeous.  She appears at tournaments
        and slices through her foes with ease.  Then she just disappears.  From
        what I've heard, she's looking for a man from her past.
KAREL:  Hmm...
DART:   Speaking of women, let me tell you about the Wyvern General.  You know
        about the three Wyvern Generals in Bern, right? Well, she's a fourth,
        and she's mightier than the other three!
KAREL:  Hmm... Interesting.  I will remember her.
DART:   Now it's my turn! So you've traveled all over Elibe, right? Have you ever
        heard of the treasure of the pirate king?
KAREL:  No.

KAREL:  I am only one Karel, but that is my name.

DART:   Well, pucker my portside! Why didn't you say so?
KAREL:  You didn't ask.
DART:   So if you're Karel, then... Hey! Do you really have a thousand swords
        from the men you've slain?
KAREL:  ...What are you talking about?
DART:   Don't hide it! I heard all about it! That you laugh on the battlefield

MARCUS:  He surely does no know the details.  Yet, why would your past have
         anything to do with you now? You rode alone into the enemy camp and
         killed their general.  Your skills in battle have done Pherae great
         aid.
HARKEN:  Sir...
MARCUS:  The house you once served is no more.  The marquess that betrayed your
         loyalty and threw you out...is dead.  You are a knight of Pherae.
HARKEN:  Lord Eliwood is a pure man.  If he knew my past... Would he still
         welcome me?
MARCUS:  It is unlike you to say such foolish things, Harken.  Why do you think
         you stand here now? For whom do you swing your sword, if not for Lord

LOWEN:   Lord Harken... I... You are wrong.  You are a knight.  I know this to

HARKEN:  Lowen...?
LOWEN:   I was born to peasants.  My home was a small village, far outside
         Pherae... A village with little value, far from the sight of the
         castle.  We were so poor, there was hardly any value to be gained by
         protecting us from bandits.  All knew this, for certain.  Still, he

NINO:     Well, I had a good teacher, I guess! But I think maybe it's a little

NINO:     Someone I fancy?
REBECCA:  Yeah, you know... Someone you like?
NINO:     Rebecca, did you give a necklace to someone?

LEGAULT:  You see, we talked about this before, didn't we...? You must stop
          calling me "Uncle."
NINO:     But, why?
LEGAULT:  Well, for one thing, I'm still in my twenties.  I'm not much older
          than Lloyd or Linus.
NINO:     Yeah, but you're... different from them... You're never angry, for one
          thing.  You're more like Uncle Jan than like my brothers...
LEGAULT:  So, I'm to be grouped in with Jan, am I? My, but that is so very

LEGAULT:  Yeah, you should start thinking about where you'll end up after

NINO:  A book? Oh, it's full of pictures!
ERK:   It was mine...a long time ago...
NINO:  So you couldn't read, either?
ERK:   No, just the opposite.  I read only the most difficult books from the
       time I was small.  My magic teacher was really amazing.  I was really
       proud and happy to be his student.  So, to gain his approval, I spent day
       and night studying, without even stopping to eat...
NINO:  Wow! I bet that's not very good for your body...
ERK:   Haha! No, you're right... One day I just collapsed.  I really worried my
       teacher and his wife...
NINO:  Yeah?
ERK:   And that was when my teacher bought me this picture book... He said,
       "Look, Erk, this book is filled with pictures.  There are fields of
       rolling, green grass, flowers that explode into color, and clouds that
       crawl across the seamless sky.  Training to be a mage requires more than
       staying in your room studying all the time.  You must go outside and
       commune with the spirits.  When you get better, we'll go for walks
       everyday.  Until then, look at these pictures and think of how it will
       be."
NINO:  Commune with the spirits... I do that a lot.  My mother just used them,
       and always said that talking to them was a waste of time, but... But it
       sounds like your teacher really got to know them.  Eheheh.  This makes
       me so happy...
ERK:   ...You never cease to amaze me, Nino.  It's as if you were born to do
       magic.  You remind me of my teacher...
NINO:  Of your teacher!? Oh, no way!! Even as a joke, that just sounds like an
       insult to your teacher!!
ERK:   Nino, why do you doubt yourself so?
NINO:  Because... My mother said......
ERK:   Forget about that!! I believe in you!! Don't you trust me?!
NINO:  Erk...?
ERK:   ...Ah... I, ahh... ......Never mind.

VAIDA:  Hey, you!
CANAS:  Oh, hello there.  I am called Canas.
VAIDA:  Who asked you, worm-bait! And what are you doing, reading in the heat
        of battle?
CANAS:  Ah, yes.  This is "The Dragon-Human War: An Anotated Chronicle."
        It's about the war one thousand years ago between humans and...
VAIDA:  I don't care what book you're reading! I want to know why you're even
        reading in the first place!
CANAS:  Oh.  I see.  Forgive me.
VAIDA:  I can't believe we're fighting on the same side! Who's running this
        army? I hope they don't expect me to fight for both of us! Now get
        out of my way, unless you want to get stepped on!
CANAS:  Ahh... Pardon me.

CANAS:  Ah, er... Hello, Vaida.  I am indeed reading.  This is--
VAIDA:  I didn't ask!
CANAS:  Ah.  Well, excuse me.  I thought I would bring a book today that you
        might find interesting... It is about wyvern-mounted combat...
VAIDA:  Wyverns?
CANAS:  Yes.  Do you know of them? They are rather mysterious creatures.
        According to this book, they are all white and normally appear in
        lakes... And it says that they cry "Scraw!" from time to time.  Just
        once, I sure would like to see a real one...
VAIDA:  Are you...stupid?
CANAS:  Hm? Was my description inaccurate?
VAIDA:  You scholars are all bumbling fools! Give me that useless book! Umbriel!

HEATH:  As it turned out, I could be neither a knight of Bern nor a mercenary...

        there is no other way, I will go alone.
HEATH:  ...It is too dangerous... Powerful though you may be, to go alone...
VAIDA:  Yes, I will probably die.  Is that what you mean to say? But Prince
        Zephiel's life is worth the price.  And so I will return to Bern.  No

HARKEN:  A black riding wyvern on a crimson shield... You must be Lady Vaida.
         I have heard of you from Lord Eliwood.  I am Harken, a knight of

VAIDA:   Eh? What are you saying? Do you walk in your sleep? We are enemies...
         Or are you an idiot?

VAIDA:   You seem...uninformed, so let me tell you: I fought with your rabble

HARKEN:  ...No.  My lord Eliwood has welcomed you to his side, has he not? If
         that is so...then we are allies.

HARKEN:  I am a knight of Pherae.  I fight in a way befitting my station.  Are

VAIDA:   Hah! There, you're wrong.  I'm no longer a knight.
HARKEN:  What does that mean?

HARKEN:  Lady Vaida.
VAIDA:   You again? Do you never learn? How many times must I tell you I've no
         interest...
HARKEN:  I...once belonged to the Black Fang.
VAIDA:   What!? What did you say?
HARKEN:  In order to avenge Lord Elbert and my companions... I would sneak into
         the enemy camp alone.  It was then... once...I saw you there.  It was
         outside the base... You were talking to their leader's wife, Sonia.
         I remember you well... A young, earnest wyvern knight, talking to that
         cold-eyed woman...
VAIDA:   You...were watching? Hmph.  You have strange tastes.  I trust you found
         great comedy in our exchange.  Me, being reprimanded by that woman...
HARKEN:  No, on the contrary... I was envious of you.
VAIDA:   Eh...? How is that?
HARKEN:  You... You were using Nergal to help you return to the Royal Wyvern
         Knights.  You were willing to use any means necessary to return to your
         master... At the time, I had lost my master, and my will to live...
         Seeing your focus of mind... It was impressive.
VAIDA:   ...
HARKEN:  Yet, I do not understand.  How could you betray a lord to whom you were
         so faithful?
VAIDA:   Grr... Leave me be.  Who swore fealty to any king? Not I! The lord to
         whom I swore... Was not that plain man, graspin at the coattails of
         power, but a man born with the presence and manner of a king.  Should
         that man take the throne, a change of fortune would surely come to
         Bern.
HARKEN:  You speak of Prince Zephiel...
VAIDA:   That name is not to be spoken of so lightly by a knight of Pherae!
HARKEN:  Now I undertand.  It is good that we were able to talk.
VAIDA:   ...
HARKEN:  Vaida... We are both knights of the same heart.  Together, in this
         army, we are compatriots.  I believe this, no matter how you feel about
         it.
VAIDA:   ... Hmph.  I care for him not one bit.  ...Truly... ...Not one bit...

WALLACE:  Wahahahaha! I'm glad you asked! I am Wallace, of the Caelin knights!
VAIDA:    Caelin? Where is that?
WALLACE:  Tsk! Ignorant woman.  Clean out your ears, and listen closely! Caelin,
          home of our Lord Hausen, is a vital territory in the Lycian alliance

          seeing each other fight up close changes one's perspective, doesn't

          thing... I take back those things I said about you being a hick knight
          from a weak country...

          too much to be desired, either.

          of all other forces on the continent! You will see our power soon!

RENAULT:  Are you all right?
ISADORA:  Your Excellency?
RENAULT:  You don't look very well... We can't have you die here.  Try thinking
          about your village...
ISADORA:  I shall...

ISADORA:  Y-Yes? What is it?
RENAULT:  About earlier... I may be a poor preacher, but please listen to me
          now...
ISADORA:  Of course.  What have you to tell me?
RENAULT:  You asked me what you should do.  If I could give you one direction,
          one step along the path... It would be...to let yourself be lost.
ISADORA:  Lost?
RENAULT:  Forgiving your sins is a small task for a bishop... And if that were
          enough to save you, I would recite the words.  But you suffer... and
          you seek answers...
ISADORA:  ......
RENAULT:  And that is the greatest pain of all... The pain of doubt.  If I
          dispelled this doubt, I could free you from your pain.  But then you
          would be nothing more than a puppet that kills.  Use your doubt.  Use
          it to become something more.  I think it makes you...human.
ISADORA:  Bishop Renault...
RENAULT:  Whether you will ever find answers, I do not know.  But you must live
          with your doubt until then.  If you can, then all of the joy and
          sorrow you experience... will truly belong to you.
ISADORA:  Your Excellency...
RENAULT:  I have lived this way since I found myself... Some are sustained by
          faith, but for me, there are no answers.

          but the man was too strong.  I saw my father fall before me.  I recall
          it sometimes, even now... The eyes of the thief who killed him.
          ...Like terrible dark stones set in his hate-filled face...... All he
          left behind was this dagger protruding from my father's chest.

WALLACE:  The man I knew was a mercenary also in the service of Caelin.  Yes,
          and his name was also Renault.  Renault the Impervious, they called
          him.  He had no fear of death, and his bravery was well known.  Did
          you know him?
RENAULT:  No...
WALLACE:  I learned much about fighting from him... I owe him a great debt as

RENAULT:  Why do you want to see him?

CANAS:    Bishop, I must ask you... Do you think these morphs have souls?
RENAULT:  Souls?
CANAS:    Yes.  I am dreadfully curious to know.  The Elimineans say that all
          creatures possess souls... All those created by the gods, that is.
          But what of those created by man? And these manufactured beings...
          do they dream? Do they think--and suffer--as we do? Or must their

          thought any of us would actually have seen one.
RENAULT:  ......
CANAS:    Renault, where did you first learn of these morphs? Are they mentioned
          in the Eliminean scripture?
RENAULT:  A long time ago, I... Enough.  I don't want to talk about this.
CANAS:    Oh.  Well that is... truly unfortunate.  You see, we know so little of
          Nergal.
RENAULT:  ......
CANAS:    Why, for example, did he begin creating morphs? After his falling out
          with the Archsage Athos, did he feel alone in the world? Did he need
          the company of someone who could understand him? Was he forced
          to...create...such a being?
RENAULT:  ...Not exactly.
CANAS:    Oh?
RENAULT:  He has no care for his creations... He merely brought them into this
          world to serve him.  His only interest is himself.  Those...things...
          that he discards... They lose their way... and wander.  And he cares
          not.  Morphs...are the mere fact of existence... once meaning has been
          stripped away.
CANAS:    Renault... How do you know so much?
RENAULT:  ......
CANAS:    Nergal began creating morphs centuries ago.  Even Athos knows so
          little... So...how could you...?

          Knowledge...is the reason for my journey... I understand there are

          not answer if you do not wish to.

RENAULT:  ......
CANAS:    I will give you the answer I suspect may be true.  You know, because
          you were there.  Nergal was alone after he and Athos separated.  The
          only ones around him were his morphs... Perhaps then, you are...
RENAULT:  ...... What?

          but...I hesitate to ask...
RENAULT:  Is that so... Then I will ask you a question.
CANAS:    Yes?
RENAULT:  You asked me before... Whether or not morphs had a soul... What do you
          think?
CANAS:    ...... Before...I would have said that I do not know... But now,
          perhaps I do... Morphs...do have souls... That is what I believe...
RENAULT:  ...That is not a bad answer.  Your reply deserves another good
          answer... When Nergal first created his morphs, he was not alone.  He
          had one assistant.  A mercenary who wanted desperately to bring back
          a friend he had lost in battle.  This mercenary volunteered freely for
          Nergal's experiments, knowing they would make him less than human...
CANAS:    Bishop Renault, are you saying--

FARINA:  Hah! Don't try playing the kindly employer! You won't trick me that
         way! I'm not giving back the gold I was given!
HECTOR:  I'm not talking about money, you dummy.  You know, you keep saying
         stuff like that, people are going to suspect you!
FARINA:  What should I care? As long as I'm paid...Those who think clinging to
         money is wrong have never been poor!
HECTOR:  Well... Well that may be, but...Some things you can't buy with money!
FARINA:  Why would I need anything like that? I must be off now.  Murphy? Let's

         get it.
FARINA:  My! You have venom enough for me and my younger sister, I see!
HECTOR:  Gimme a break! And get away from there.
FARINA:  Oh, I see what's going on.  You saw us three sisters... Fiora, Farina,
         and Florina, the beauties of Ilia... And you thought to take us all for
         yourself, didn't you!
HECTOR:  Don't make me part of your wacky fantasies!
FARINA:  All you nobles are the same.  You treat us mercenaries as...as objects!

         Just ask me or one of the other guys if you need any help.
FARINA:  What good would that do? Who's going to help a mercenary like me?
HECTOR:  Would you--
FARINA:  We mercenaries are pawns, bought for gold.  it would be wrong for us to
         expect friendship from anyone.  All we can trust... is gold.

KARLA:   ...... I have not recieved any money.

         you just don't know much about how the world works, right?
KARLA:   Hmm... Perhaps it is as you say... I am not...connected to this world
         very strongly.  So...most people fight for money, do they? ...Perhaps
         I will ask Lord Hector about it someday.
FARINA:  Yeah... Yeah, you do that... Maybe you can get back pay!! We should go
         in there and both renegotiate our contracts... Maybe our combined

FARINA:  Say, Karla, you're from Sacae, right?
KARLA:   Yes, you could say that... I've heard that my ancestors sailed here
         from across the seas, however...
FARINA:  So the tribes in Sacae, they all, like, dance around a fire and chant
         "Ooga Booga," don't they?
KARLA:   ...They do?
FARINA:  Don't they? You did say Sacae, didn't you? Karla, you really don't know
         much about the world, do you?
KARLA:   ...I guess I don't.  Talking with you has been very...illuminating.  I
         grew up in a place that had no contact with Sacae.  Where I grew up, I
         was not even allowed to touch a sword like this.
FARINA:  Why not?
KARLA:   Because I am a woman.  Women were not allowed to bear swords.  Women in
         my house were told to do what men say.
FARINA:  What a tired bunch of hogwash! Men aren't all that great, let me tell
         you! Unless, you know...they're rich...
KARLA:   But it was not only my country that had such rules... I have travelled
         to many lands... And most are all the same.  Farina, are things
         different where you are from?
FARINA:  Of course! Well they're the opposite anyway! Women are the only ones
         who put bread on the table.
KARLA:   Is that so?
FARINA:  Yes! Pegasi will only allow women to ride them! So only women can be
         Pegasus knights.  The men just work the terraced vegetable fields in
         the mountains.
KARLA:   I see...
FARINA:  I guess there is a men's knighht brigade, but it's pretty terrible.
         They're only really good for digging the stables out of snowdrifts
         after a storm, to be honest... So, it's kind of like men are not even
         our equals, really.  They're kind of like luggage, to tell you the
         truth.
KARLA:   ...That's too bad.  Don't you find that to be a little severe...? Is
         there no sane land in this world?

KARLA:  You would kill... me, too?
KAREL:  Eventually, yes.  It is you or I, Karla.  One and only one can carry
        this sword.

KAREL:  What? Why do you wait?
KARLA:  Do you remember, Brother? It was so long ago... We were still little...
KAREL:  What are you talking about?
KARLA:  The plains shone scarlet in the twilight... I was crying because I had
        lost my way.  You picked me up and carried me home.
KAREL:  The memory is...lost to me.  I cannot recall it.
KARLA:  I remember it so clearly.  The warmth of your back.  If I could, I would
        have stayed that way forever.
KAREL:  ......
KARLA:  Brother... I hated the sword.  I never wanted to learn a skill that
        could only be used to kill.  But it was the only way I could get close
        to you, Brother.
KAREL:  ......
KARLA:  ...You seem unable to concentrate, Brother.  Forgive me.  Perhaps we
        should duel another day.

KARLA:  We are less than human now.  We are no different from our swords

FARINA:  Say, Karla, you're from Sacae, right?
KARLA:   Yes, you could say that... I've heard that my ancestors sailed here
         from across the seas, however...
FARINA:  So the tribes in Sacae, they all, like, dance around a fire and chant
         "Ooga Booga," don't they?
KARLA:   ...They do?
FARINA:  Don't they? You did say Sacae, didn't you? Karla, you really don't know
         much about the world, do you?
KARLA:   ...I guess I don't.  Talking with you has been very...illuminating.  I
         grew up in a place that had no contact with Sacae.  Where I grew up, I
         was not even allowed to touch a sword like this.
FARINA:  Why not?
KARLA:   Because I am a woman.  Women were not allowed to bear swords.  Women in
         my house were told to do what men say.
FARINA:  What a tired bunch of hogwash! Men aren't all that great, let me tell
         you! Unless, you know...they're rich...
KARLA:   But it was not only my country that had such rules... I have travelled
         to many lands... And most are all the same.  Farina, are things
         different where you are from?
FARINA:  Of course! Well they're the opposite anyway! Women are the only ones
         who put bread on the table.
KARLA:   Is that so?
FARINA:  Yes! Pegasi will only allow women to ride them! So only women can be
         Pegasus knights.  The men just work the terraced vegetable fields in
         the mountains.
KARLA:   I see...
FARINA:  I guess there is a men's knighht brigade, but it's pretty terrible.
         They're only really good for digging the stables out of snowdrifts
         after a storm, to be honest... So, it's kind of like men are not even
         our equals, really.  They're kind of like luggage, to tell you the
         truth.
KARLA:   ...That's too bad.  Don't you find that to be a little severe...? Is
         there no sane land in this world?

          Edessa.  That's where the pegasi gather ...at the spring of Pyrene.
NINIAN:   I... I am not so good at geography... But it was near the tallest
          mountain in Ilia.
FLORINA:  You mean the mountain of the Ice Dragon?
NINIAN:   ...Ice Dragon?
FLORINA:  Yes.  A long time ago, there was a tall mountain where an ice dragon
          lived.  Don't you know the story?
NINIAN:   I'm sorry, I don't... I've been traveling for a long time with my
          brother, and...
FLORINA:  Oh...I see... Well, a long time ago, there was an ice dragon in Ilia.
          And this kind dragon helped the people of Ilia, who had trouble living
          in snow year round.  But a war broke out between dragons and people...
          And the kind dragons, not wanting to hurt the humans, went off to a
          faraway place.
NINIAN:   ......
FLORINA:  My sister first told me that story as a child to make me go to bed...
          Even now, every year, the people in that area make an offering to the
          mountain... When I was little, I so wanted to meet the ice dragon that
          I braved the cold and waited all night next to the place of
          offering... But I saw dawn the next morning, and the dragon never
          came... Then I caught a cold and my sister got very upset with me...
NINIAN:   ...You waited all night? Miss Florina... Weren't you afraid of the
          dragon?
FLORINA:  Afraid? Why?
NINIAN:   Doesn't everyone think that dragons are terrifying, man-eating beasts?
          I mean, how could two different species ever get along?
FLORINA:  It doesn't matter what species you are... Look at me.  My pegasus and
          I are of different species...
NINIAN:   Yeah, I guess so...
FLORINA:  Pegasi are all very shy around humans... But I'm kind of that way,
          too... At first this sweet mare and I were so afraid of each other...
          It didn't go so well... But we played together, and swam together...
          And soon, we began to understand each other... And that's how we
          became friends... So even if two beings may be shaped a little
          differently... That doesn't mean they can't get along.
NINIAN:   I see... Yeah, you must be right! I mean...we get along, don't we?

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
==============================================================================

     Got a few questions here now...

Q: Are Marth and Roy in this game?
A: Marth is not, and neither is Roy, well sorta.  Roy is not a playable
   character in any way but he is refered to sometimes (Hectors prophecy)
   and he also appears in a cutscene.

Q: ____ died, is there any way to revive him/her?
A: If he/she died before the end of Lyn's tutorial missions then yes, but after
   that he/she will be forced to sit out and may only appear for story reasons.

Q: Does support conversation effect the ending of the game like extra
   CG pics or cutscenes?
A: Yea converstions do effect the ending in big ways.  For some characters you
   may get an extra cutscene but very few.  Also the endings may change for the
   pair of people you reach A in.  Soon I will include which conversations add
   to the ending and which ones reward you with a CG.

Q: Can you replay maps to go back to shops for extra items?
A: No, you cannot go back after a level is completed, though you can restart the
   level mid-play in case you have forgotten something using soft reset or
   whatnot.

Q: Can your weapons be repaired in some way that you can use them longer than
   the initial usage number?
A: There is a staff you get as you are playing through the game that has the
   power to repair items.  Other than that though there is no way.  Even though
   the staff cannot repair itself.

Q: Besides enhancing the ending can the support feature do anything else?
A: Support conversations add to characters stat points, in a hidden way you
   don't see.  Your strength may go up if you have someone at "A" rank but you
   cannot actually see that boost, it is a hidden value.  The characters
   elements have to do with what stat boosts you gain secretly.  I hope to have
   a chart or something that lists the boosts after I am finished with the
   conversations.

Q: Is Lucius a boy or girl?
A: He is a boy.

Q: Is Erk a boy or girl?
A: He is also a boy.

Q: Why can't I get the Support conversations? I have had ____ next to ____ for
   the set amount of turns...
A: There are a couple reasons that you might not be getting them, one is that
   you are still in Lyndis's story, the first 10 levels are Lyndis's story, so
   until you clear that you cannot get any Support conversations.
   Another reason is that you have already gotten a conversation for that pair
   this level.  What I mean is that if you get a support conversation between
   Erk and Serra in a certain level, then it is not possible to get another
   conversation between them until the next stage.

Q: How can Renault and Karla get support up to A? They are only in your party for
   the last 2 levels!
A: Ah... I get this question mailed to me quite a bit, but it isn't that hard to
   figure out.  The thing is the last stage is actually separated by two different
   parts. (I am sure you can tell when the first one ends and the second part
   begins) So you indeed get Renault and Karla to A rank, you just have to get
   two levels of support in one level.

Q: Can I send you some conversations that you don't have included in your FAQ?
A: Now this is a question I wish I would of put in here earlier, you can send me
   any conversations I do not have but the thing is MAKE SURE they are not in
   there already cause these are a major pain to type up so if you have a
   handful to send in be positive.  Also if you want to be included in the
   credits of my FAQ please give me a name or alias that you wish to be credited.
   This might speed up the process of this FAQ even though it is nearly done.
   anyways, thanks.

Anymore questions that anyone has can be mailed to me.
