001-General Information
-----------------------------------------------------------

This guide covers all of the dialogue, and a synopsis of
the events that occur in Fire Emblem Gaiden.  I even add in
some plot analysis!  Woo hoo!

This is guide is supposed to make understanding the game
easier, because understanding the game is pretty damn
hard with the poor translation that is available.

You can contact me at my incredibly long e-mail address,
ilovecartoonssomuch@yahoo.com, but make the subject blank
if you do so I know that it's not junk mail.  If you want
to use this guide for something, please ask first.

002-Plot Detail
-----------------------------------------------------------

When it comes to names, similar-sounding refer to the same
thing.  For example, Misen is the same as Mycen.

002a-Part One 
-----------------------------------------------------------

Plot Detail 1:

A character in blue is pacing back and forth.  A nearby
character named Misen says, "Alm, rest.  Your sword
practice is over, go and play.  Don't leave the village,
bandits have been around."

Analysis:

Alm is the character in blue; he is troubled about
something, and is learning to swordfight.

Misen is an authority figure for Alm (he orders Alm
around);  Misen wants Alm to stop worrying, but still
wants Alm to be cautious due to the bandits.  Misen
is quite old, according to his picture.

Plot Detail 2:

Alm walks right, and finds three villagers surrounding a
man.  Each of the villagers says, "Alm!  Good timing!
Listen to this guy!"

The man, Ruka, says, "General Tozeh went Coup de Etat with
his plan.  He has taken Sofia's castle and killed their
king.  He is ruthless and many people have been tortured.
A liberation is forming to rebel, and we need help.  So we
came here to ask General Misen."

Analysis:

Coup D'Etat (the proper way of writing it, or so I'm told)
is a French word that is similar to Coup de grace, which is
a finishing blow, Coup de main, which is a sudden,
unexpected movement/attack, and coup de soleil, which is a
sunburn.

But enough about French words.  A Coup D'Etat is when
someone (or someones) in a governmental position of power
overthrow the government and become in charge of things.
Coup D'Etats are usually made up of a small group of
people, rather than a large group of people.  The usage
of Coup D'Etat signifies that the people of the land are
not happy with Tozeh's overthrow.

So the former General Tozeh has taken over the land of Sofia
and killed the king.  He is quite unpopular, and a
liberation is forming to stop him.

Also, Misen appears to be a general.  He probably knows
Tozeh, and perhaps is training Alm to swordfight because
he thought Tozeh would do something like this.

Plot Detail 3:

If Alm talks to the other villagers, they say, "Your
grandfather was a General?", "People need help, let's try
and save them.", and "We'll wait here so you go ask him".

Analysis:

Misen is Alm's grandfather; Ruka's words have stirred the
villagers into action; Misen has not been an active General
for some time.

Plot Detail 4:

Alm tells Misen about the rebellion.  Misen says, "What?
You're going to rebel?  I cannot allow it!  You will regret
this..."

Alm then goes back to Ruka.  Ruka says, "That so?  Too bad.
Lord Misen has become timid in his age.  He was once a hero
to Sofia's people."

Alm says, "I'll join in place of my grandfather."  Ruka
says, "Hm?  You will?  The liberation army would be
delighted.  Now, let's go to the liberation army camp
site."

Alm talks to the other villagers.  Cliff says, "What should
I do?  What the heck, I'll go!  But save me if I get in
trouble, I don't fight as well."  Bird says, "Alm, you're
our leader, you can't leave us.  Let's all save Sofia."
Grey says, "Alm, I'm coming!  Who knows when this village
will be invaded?  Let's get Tozeh!" 

Analysis:

Misen does not want anything to do with the rebellion, and
it appears that he has grown senile.  He must have been an
important person to be called General, hero, and Lord.

Everyone in town (besides Misen) seems to follow Alm, so
they all decide to help save Sofia as a group.  Misen is
the only one who doesn't leave town.

Plot Detail 5:

The party of Alm, Ruka, Cliff, Bird, and Grey leave the
town and get in a fight with five thieves.  Once they win,
the town they came from is completely empty.

Analysis:

The bandits Misen mentioned must be the ones that they
fought.  If bandits are allowed to roam free, perhaps the
liberation is not going as smoothly as planned.

Misen also has left town.  He did not want to help the
liberation, so it is unlikely he went off the help them.
He could have run off to find a good place to hide, or
perhaps he was captured by bandits.  Whatever happened,
Misen has left town without letting anyone know of his
whereabouts, which makes it sound like he left against his
own will.

Plot Detail 6:

The party continues on and gets in another fight.  They
enter a theives' shrine and fight some thieves inside.
Past the thieves, they find a woman named Silk in the
shrine.

Silk says, "I'm Silk, a sister of Mira.  I was taken by a
group of bandits.  Please, take me from here."

Analysis:

The thieves/bandits are taking hostages, which makes the
possibility that they captured Misen seem more correct.

When Silk says she is a sister of Mira, she means a
religious follower of Mira.  What she is wearing (robes)
makes this known.

Plot Detail 7:

Two battles later, the bandits have been driven out of the
southern fort.  Inside is Clea, who says, "Thanks, I'm a
knight of Sofia, Claire.  I was captured by Tozeh's men.
Cleve, my brother, is the liberation's leader.  Let's go
meet him."  Clea joins up with the party.

Analysis:

The liberation must be failing, or at least, it is not
doing well.

Plot Detail 8:

Two battles later, the party enters the liberation
headquarters, which is a cave.  Inside is a man named Pay.
Pay says, "This is the liberation's camp.  No strangers!
Oh, you new here?  Go to the back room, watch for
monsters..."

On the way to the back room, the party is attacked by the
monsters, but they continue on.  In the next room are three
crosses, marking graves.  In the next room are two people.

One of the people, a man named Kreb, says, "Ah, you're Alm.
Thank you for saving my Sister.   You're very courageous,
being General Mycen's grandson and all.  Alm, I have a
favor to ask, would you become the leader of this
liberation?  Sofia's royalty fell for.  So we wanted
General Misen to become King.  But he has made no move to
rebel.  So we want you to be our leader so we'll have
something to fight for.  Please, Alm...Save Sofia!"

The other person, a man named Fols, says, "Tozeh asked
Rigel kingdom for aid.  Rigel's knights are superior to us.
If they agree, there's no hope for us."  Alm answers,
"Sofia and Rigel are bound by God's pact, we can't fight.
Mira would never allow that to happen."  Fols says, "But
word has reached that Mira disappeared.  Hey, don't look
shocked!  Strange things have been going on.  Crops not
growing, monsters appearing.  Mira's power is dieing. 
Let's visit Mira's shrine."

As the party (Fols and Kreb join) leave, Pay says, "Where
are you going?  What?  Invade Sofia?  I'm going, too!  Good
luck liberating it!  But be careful, Tozeh's army is very
powerful.  Watch out for Sreida, the master guard..."

Analysis:

The liberation is failing.  There are graves in its
headquarters, which is not well-protected enough to keep
monsters away.  They also are in need of a leader.  This
party of 10 people is all that remains of the liberation.

Kreb is the Cleve man mentioned earlier (Clea's brother).

Misen appears to have kept his idea of not having anything
to do with the liberation.  Kreb/Cleve wants Alm to take
his place as liberation leader.

Mira, apparently, has power over the lands of Sofia and
Rigel, and does not want them fighting.  Mira is most
likely a goddess, due to the fact that Silk is a religious
follower of her, and the fact that Mira won't let them
break God's pact.

The goddess Mira has, however, mysteriously disappeared,
which has let bad things happen.  Sofia wants to
investigate it, but can't due to the obvious problems
with Tozeh.  Mira appears to have a shrine of some
importance.

Finally, Tozeh has a master guard, Sreida.  And second
finally, Fols is bad at spelling (it's dying, not dieing).
And third finally, Pay is a terrible guard (the first thing
he does is to reveal that the cave is the location of the
rebellion, which is not information you should give
freely).

Plot Detail 9:

As they approach the castle of Sofia, a baron, not Sreida,
though Sreida is there, taunts you.  During the fight,
the baron stays in place, while Sreida attacks you.  Once
Sreida is dead, the baron runs away from the fight.

Once the castle is freed, there are many people inside.
One says, "Dozeh has the Royal Sword with him. It's a sword
wielded by a old Regel King.  No regular man could use it."

Another says, "Dozzeh left everything to Regel.  We're
gonna have to take over the bastard's fort.  Ugh..."
Someone else says, "You are Misen's grandkids, but he
doesn't know it?  Then the rumor's true...that's impossible!
..."

Someone else says, "Thank you.  Thanks to you, Tozeh's
forces departed.  I'm sure they went to their fortress."
Another person says, "If Anteze was alive, Dozeh would not
have taken over, and the royal children would be dead..."

Finally, the last two people say, "Dozeh said the royalty
was massacred.  I'm alive because Misen took me and the
Queen out of the country.  I wouldn't be alive if he
hadn't..." and "The knight killer will easily destroy enemy
calvary.  Knights can use."

Analysis:

This Baron fellow is Tozeh.  This Dozeh (Dozzeh) person
is most likely
Tozeh as well.

Tozeh, who we know previously wanted aid from Rigel
kingdom, seems to have gotten it.  He has a famous sword
from Rigel, which should make him hard to defeat.  Also,
to defeat him, they'd have to attack Rigel, where Tozeh
is currently hiding in his fortress.

There appears to be some rumor going on about Misen's
grandchildren.  This is probably that Alm is the leader of
the liberation.  Let's hope this mystery is cleared up
(it is).

Apparently, someone named Anteze is dead.  If Anteze was
alive, he or she would have prevented Tozeh from taking
over, but he or she would also have killed the royal
children.  Strange...

Misen apparently took the Queen and someone else out of the
country to protect them.  That must be where he disappeared
to.  He didn't want a part in the liberation, but he wanted
to help save the Queen.  Maybe Misen is not so timid after
all...

The last thing is someone saying the knight killer will
destroy enemies.  He is referring to the Knight Spear, which
is located in a chest by this person.  Only Knights can
use the mighty Knight Spear.

Plot Detail 10:

As Alm goes to the top floor (coincidentally, second floor)
of the castle, he sees a man in purple.  It's Misen.  They
talk.  Misen says, "Alm, I see."  Alm says, "Grandfather?
You're here?!"  Misen says, "Now, Alm, follow the path that
you believe in.  And release the cursed fate of Valencia.
That is the fate of you and the red haired girl that will
come here soon...that is your given fate, save Sofia!"

Thus ends the first part.

Analysis:

Misen's actions were indeed unexpected.  He must have been
pretending to be timid, or else he had a change of heart.
It seems he was pretending, because he has big plans.

Misen says that Alm is fated to save Sofia and release the
curse upon Valencia.  Evidently, Alm will have to continue
on in his fight (he does have to go after Tozeh).  But
strangely, Misen says a red haired girl will soon come and
help him.  Weird.

002b-Part Two 
-----------------------------------------------------------

Plot Detail 1:

Celica, a girl with red hair, says, "I'll be leaving, Sir."
Norm, the old man she was addressing, says, "Celica, you're
going?  The road to Mira's shrine is long.  Sofia is in
ruins and no one will aid you.  Pirates of Geese or monsters
will attack.  Warrior priest or not, it will be hard..."

Celica says, "But Sir...the land has been barren for three
years and people are starving and have been coming here for
help.  What happened to Mira?"  Norm says, "Is that so, when
then, Celica.  You know why Lord Mycen sent you here for me
to raise.  You're the last of the Royal blood.  The last
hope of the people, be careful!"

Analysis:

Celica must be the red haired girl Misen (Mycen) was
talking about.  She appears to be the last descendant of
the royal family.  She's also a warrior princess.

Celica wants to visit Mira's shrine and figure out what
went wrong with Mira.  It will be tough, but she insists
on going.  Much like how Misen watched over Alm; Norm
watches Celica.

Plot Detail 2:

Whenever Celica speaks with Norm again, Norm says, "That
is all...let Mira protect you."

While leaving, Celica speaks with a girl named Jeni.  Jeni
says, "If Lady Celica is going, then so will I.  I can heal
small wounds with my spell."  Celica also speaks to a kid
named Boey.  Boey says, "Lady Celica, just you ladies?  I'll
go with you!  So don't worry!"  Lastly, a girl named May
says, "Boy, you're still a kid, only knowing a fire spell.
Lady Celica, I can use thunder, count on me!"

All three of them join Celica's party.

Analysis:

Celica is actually a Lady, as everyone except Norm calls
her Lady Celica.  Everyone wants to go with her on the
journey to Mira.  May appears to think Boey is still just
a kid (she calls him Boy, a play on words as his name is
Boey).

Plot Detail 3:

After a graveyard fight, the party of four gets to a town
called Nowhere.  Four people leave in Nowhere.  A person
standing outside the pub says, "They say there's a sword
in the Sea Shrine with great power, but hard to get."
Someone by the docks says, "If you want to head for Valencia,
get on that ship.  I've heard of pirates out at sea.  Their
boss is Dahha, very unmerciful.  A guy went out for revenge
for his family, probably died."

A man in the pub, Sevr, says, "Shut up 'n go 'way, I'm
tryin' to drink!  Hah, you'll never make it across the
ocean."  Celica says, "You look unemployed, would you
protect us, sir?"  Sevr says, "You give me a job?  Could
be interesting...Okay, let's go together."  Sevr joins
the party.

The bartender says, "Don't even think of going to the Sea
Shrine.  That's home to the Dragon Zombie, he'll eat you
up!"

Analysis:

There is a powerful sword in the Sea Shrine, which is
protected by the equally powerful Dragon Zombie.  That's
bad news.

Also, there sees to be a party of people who are already
at sea, trying to get revenge upon some pirates.  These
people have not been heard from since they left.

Sevr appears to be a rough person (he has an eyepatch)
as well.

Plot Detail 4:

Several battles later, Celica's party reaches the pirate
fortress.  A party of three people is already there, and
Baro, the leader of the party, agrees to help Celica in the
battle.  After a bad gut named Back is killed, Celica
talks to the three people.

Baro says, "Thanks for saving me!  Well, don't be rude.
I'm going with you."  Cami says, "I hired Balbo, so you
guys go ahead.  Dragon Zombies won't be so forgiving,
there's no way to win without knowing angel magic."  Leo
says, "If Balbo comes, I'm coming too!  I'm more
confident!"

Analysis:

Bach must be the earlier mentioned Dahha person.  Baro's
party must be the earlier mentioned party that is going
after Dahha.

I don't know who Balbo is.  Perhaps Balbo is a nickname
for Baro.  Whatever.

Plot Detail 5:

After defeating the Dragon Zombie with Angel Magic and
getting the Holy Sword, the party continues moving on.
Finally, they reach a city near Sofia castle.  Inside are
two women, Pala and Catu.

Pala says, "A pleasure...we're from Akaneia."  Catu says,
"Pirates captured our sister.  We followed their ship but
lost them.  Please save her, we mustn't leave her!"

Catu and Pala do not join Celica's party.  Celica's party
enters Sofia castle.  Inside, there are several people.

One person says, "I'm glad, but worried.  If Regal kingdom
attacks again, we'll all be slaughtered..." Someone else
says, "Yeah!  Sofia castle is liberated!  General Tozeh ran
to his own castle!"

Someone else repeats what was said to Alm; "Dozeh has the
Royal Sword with him. It's a sword wielded by a old Regel
King.  No regular man could use it."

Another person says, "A hero has come to Sofia!  We will be
saved!"  Someone else says, "Going to Mira temple?  I'd
reconsider.  It's crawling with Geeth's thieves.  They say
the road is blocked by rocks."  Finally, the last person
says, "Tozeh's not there, but no plants are growing, and
monsters are appearing.  Where's Mira?"

Analysis:

Not much new information is learned.  We learn that bad
things are happening in the Mira Shrine place (no plants
growing, monsters appearing).  The road to it is blocked,
so it looks like Celica won't be able to make it there.
Also, there are Geeth thieves, who are the Geese thieves
Norm talked about.

Plot Detail 6:

Misen is by a staircase.  When Celica appears, he says,
"Celica, hello!" Celica says, "Grandpa!  You're here?  How?"
Misen says, "Many reasons.  You did well coming here!"
Celica says, "Yes, we saved many people.  I'm going with him
to Mira's Shrine.  You going there to wish for a good
harvest?"

Misen says, "Well...before you go, run upstairs...You
should find something there you've been looking for!"
Celica says, "Oh god!  Alm?  Grandpa, Alm is the young
hero who freed Sofia!"  Misen says, "Well, go look!"

Celica does.  She goes upstairs and meets Alm.  Alm says,
"...You?  Ce...Celica?  It it you?"  Celica says, "Alm,
it's you!  Thank to see you, extreme things have
happened..."

Alm says, "We've gotten so big since we were kids.  We
would always play, but then you left...I used to hate
Grandfather for it."  Celica says, "I was so sad, but I
couldn't help it.  Grandpa told me Tozeh would attack if
I stayed, and kill me if I was found."

Alm asks, "Why does Tozeh want to kill you?"  Celica says,
"Sorry, I'll explain later.  I have a request, please stop
fighting at Regal Kingdom."  Alm says, "That's impossible.
Regal is week from civil war and won't reason.  They'll
invade Sofia, it'll be destroyed!"

Celica says, "People of Sofia and Regal are all Valencians!
Let's live happily together!!"  Alm denies Celica's idea,
saying, "No, Sofians can't work with the Regal savages.
Sofia's been invaded with Regal's help, we must fight!"

Celica says, "How sad...Emperor Rudolf couldn't be as bad
as people say.  Have you talked with him?  Maybe you're
gaining support to be emperor..."

Alm says, "I'd never!  You're mean, Celica.  I just want to
protect the people of Sofia, since the Queen is the only
royalty left, we must find her.  Then I can return to the
village."

Celica says, "If Queen of Sofia is gone, the royal family
is...I understand.  Go to Regal, I'll go to Mira's Temple."
Celica walks off.  Alm says, "Wha!?"  Celica says, "Goodbye,
Alm" and continues walking away.  Thus ends the second part.

Analysis:

Misen is Celica's grandfather, as well as Alm's grandfather.
This explains the earlier mentioned rumor about Misen's
grandkids.  Alm and Celica, Misen's grandkids, are fated
to save the world.

Alm and Celica apparently knew each other when they were
young, and Misen sent Celica off to live with Norm because
he though Tozeh would attack.  Like Norm said, this will
preserve the last of the Royal Family.  This confirms the
idea that Misen was only faking senility.

Alm doesn't seem to know about Celica being part of the
Royal Family.  Alm seems intent of fighting Rigel kingdom,
as the Queen hasn't come back yet.

Celica wants them to live in peace, saying Emperor Rudolf,
who must be in charge of Rigel, isn't so bad.  When Celica
learns the Queen is missing, which means Celica must take
the throne, she tells Alm he should continue the search
for the Queen.

002c-Part Three
-----------------------------------------------------------

Plot Detail 1:

There is an earthquake.  Someone runs up to Alm and says,
"A path opened up to the temple of Mera!  The sisters who
left earlier were saved by Zeke."

Analysis:

The earthquake made the blocked road accessible.  Celica's
party has left to go to Mira's shrine.

Plot Detail 2:

Celica's party meets up with Catu and Pala, those women
they met earlier.  Pala says, "I've been looking for you!
I'm going with you, I have no choice.  Your journey is
important, I think I'll help.  Hey, Celica, let's go!"
Pala says, "Well, then, let's go find Est!  This is a
secret, if we line up...What the hell?  What happened?"

Analysis:

Est is the sister of Catu and Pala, the one they're looking
for.

Plot Detail 3:

Later on, Celica's party enters a mountain village.  One
person inside says, "Rumor says the northern shrine can
revive people.  But a dragon lives there and eats
everything!"  Another person says, "Theif king Geeth
conquered the east desert.  Theives and bandits ravaging
Sofia are controlled by Geeth.  We've been attacked many
times.  All of the young people were captured and made
slaves..."

The last person in the village is Atla.  He says, "You
going to Geeth?  If so, I'll help, too!  They took my
brother and sister, I have no idea where they are.  I'll
kill the SOB myself!"

Analysis:

This Geeth person is actually the king of thieves.  It looks
like he has been working with Tozeh to let his bandits
ravage Sofia (or else he just took advantage of the unrest
Tozeh created).  He has captured civilians (Est, Silk,
Clea, to state some), and Atla wants to help Celica free
the people who were captured.

Plot Detail 4:

Later on, Celica's party manages to find a captive named
Jesi.  He says, "Thank you for saving me!  I'm called Jesi!
I'm a mercenary, trying to save a girl at Geeth.  Even
though she's nice, they enslaved her."

Celica says, "Must be Est...Jesi, can we save her?"  Jesi
says, "Geeth's henchmen are massive.  We haven't got a
chance!"  Celica says, "There could be..."

Jesi says, "Geeth has two henchmen, Soni and Dean.  Each
control half of the desert, the north and the south.  Both
of them happen to hate Geeth.  But they'll overpower each
other and won't rebel.  So if we defeat one, the other
might become an ally!"

Analysis:

Here's the plan: Celica's party will defeat one of Geeth's
henchmen, to gain the support of the other henchman.  The
other henchman will help Celica beat Geeth.

Plot Detail 5:

Finally, Celica and her party make it to Mira's shrine.
It has many people in robes there.  The people say, "The
Regal army just attacked!  Priestess Mira was sealed away
by Rudolf!  Because of that, the earth is dying!  We must
do something, or Sofia will starve!", "Drak has conquered
north of here.  If you approach him, he'll summon the Dragon
of Death", "After Mira was sealed away, Geeth's thieves
attacked here.  Our friends are now hostages at his fortress.
Please save them somehow...", "Duma gave Rudolf the sword
Mira sealed.  We might be able to her if we go to Doma's
tower.  We'd have to cross swamps and forests.  One wrong
move and it'll suck your power right out.", "We'll never
make it north with water in Barenthia Valley.  We can
redirect water into the sewers at the temple's basement
gate.", and "I'm guarding the sewer gate.  Can you open it
for us?  Nope.  Only Sofia royalty can open it.  Been under
a rock, eh?"

Analysis:

The Emperor Rudolf, of Rigel, is the reason Mira is missing.
Geeth then attacked Mira's Shrine afterwards. 

Someone named Drak (really Doma) is north of the shrine.
He apparently controls the dragon that is there.
Unfortunately, Celica's party cannot travel north because
there is a lot of water blocking the way.  The only way to
get rid of the water is to use the sewer gate, but the man
there will only empty the water for Sofia royalty.  Since
Celica is Sofia royalty, she'll have to find some way to
prove it, and then the gate can be drained.

Plot Detail 6:

After attacking and defeating one of Greeth's forts,
Celica's party finds some of the kidnapped people.

Either Soni or Dean are there (depending on which one is
dead).  Soni says, "What has Geeth done?  In any case,
I'll come along, don't be rude!  I'll give you my
power...this is bad!"  Dean says, "I'll help, of course.
What's with Geeth?  If it's that bad, I thought I would
come, so don't be informal."

Another person is Est.  She says, "You...Huh?  Are they
coming?  Oh, thank god!  I'll go with you, then!"

The last person is called Girl (quite an inventive name,
I know).  Girl says, "Thanks, I had been trapped in Mera's
temple.  I now will return home.  Wait...is it you!?"

Celica answers, "??  Huh?  What did I do?"  Girl says, "Oh,
I'm sorry.  You looked like Ripurel."  Celica says,
"Ripurel?!  That's my mom's name!!"  Girl says, "Then you
are Princess Anteze.  Oh, thank God you're safe!"  Celica
says, "You knew my mother.  Please, tell me about her..."

Girl says, "Ok...Ripurel was a sister here like I am.  She
was very, very beautiful, which led to her enthronement.
However, because she was held in the castle against her
will, she grew angry.  After you were born, she died from
illness.  She always cried when she though of you.  Don't
cry, Anteze.  I need to give you something.  This circlet
was Ripurel's; place it on your head.  With it, shed light
on Sofia's queen and restore the emperor.  You are the last
hope of Sofia's royalty.  Please help your people!!"

Analysis:

Celica appears to be the Anteze person who was mentioned
earlier.  Remember, someone said, "If Anteze was alive,
Dozeh would not have taken over, and the royal children
would be dead..."

Luckily, now Celica (Anteze) has been restored to power.
She has a circlet to prove her royalty.  This should get
the man in Mira's shrine to open the floodgates.

Plot Detail 7:

Celica goes back to the man guarding the floodgates.  He
says, "I'm guarding the sewer gate.  Can you open it for
us?  Nope.  Only Sofia royalty can open it.  Been under
a rock, eh?

"Wait a sec, that crown!  That's Sofia's crest, no doubt
about it.  I had no idea where you were, I'm sorry, ma'am.
Very well, I'll open the gate."

He does so, but the gate only opens part of the way.  He
comes back and says, "Queen, I still can't open the gate.
The north and south gates must be open for water flow."

Analysis:

Celica's circlet proves she is Sofia royalty, but for
some reason, the gates don't open.

Plot Detail 8:

In the meantime, Alm and his party are setting off to get
revenge on Tozeh.  On the way, they stop at a mountain
village.  Inside are various people.

One man who is guarding a house says, "I'll reward you if
you rescue my daughter from the western shrine!"  Another
person says, "In Valencia lies a deep valley, parting north
and south.  An aqueduct usually controls water flow, but
sometimes it fails and floods result.  To make matters
worse, the Regels closed the one aqueduct recently.  If
this isn't stopped, Sofia is nil."

Someone else says, "Tozeh captured the liberation army!
Rumors are that they'll be tortured!  We have to save them!"

Lastly, a man named Ryu says, "Please, save my sister with
me!  Sorcerer Tatara is controlling her, and used her to
guard the sewer gate.  We must defeat him to undo Dute's
magic."

Analysis:

Alm's party must have to continue on and do something with
the aqueduct to let Celica use the floodgates so both
parties can move on.

Also, Ryu's sister (Dute) is being controlled by a sorcerer
who is guarding the sewer gate.

Plot Detail 9:

Alm's party makes it to a fortress.  Tozeh is there.  Alm
and his party destroy him, and save a girl named Matil, who
was being held captive.

Matil says, "Thanks, I knew you'd save us!"  Alm then gets
the Royal Sword Tozeh was holding."

Later on, his party gets to the western shrine.  They free
the girl, and get a holy spear from the man in the mountain
village because of this.

Finally, they make it to the aqueduct.  They meet the girl
who is being controlled by the sorceress, Dyute.  After
killing the sorceress, the girl says, "I have no idea.
When I noticed in battle, I ran.  Oh, was I under control
of the sorceress Tartara?  I was...I'm very sorry."

Alm speaks with the man by the aqueducts.  He says, "Hey,
it's you.  The aqueducts have opened and the Re left!"
(his words get cut off, but let's guess that Re was supposed
to be Regelians).

He opens the sewer gates and says, "Thank goodness!  Sofia
can now be split off.  North is Regel, Go."  Thus ends the
third part.

If Celica didn't open the water at Mira's basement, the man
says, "Open the duct?  No, no I can't.  If it's opened too
quickly, Sofia's water supply will be drained...I just
can't do it...I'm sorry."

Analysis:

Tozeh is toast, but Rigel kingdom, working under Emperor
Rudolf, is still be alive.  Strangely, Alm can use the
sword Tozeh had, and earlier we heard that only Rigel
royalty could use that sword.

002d-Part Four 
-----------------------------------------------------------

Plot Detail 1:

Celica can find Girl inside Mira's shrine.  Girl says,
"Thank you, I was able to return safely.  Visit sage's
village if you're heading north to the lost woods.  Sage
Hark should be able to help you."

Celica can travel to the basement of Mira's shrine and find
Norm.  Norm says, "Celica!  You're safe!"  Celica says, 
"Sage Norma!  I didn't know..." Norm says, "I guess I was
worried.  I followed you to the temple and fell down
here...heh.  I was pretty foolish.  Ah well, I'll go with
you.  No, stay."

Analysis:

Norm(a) appears to be a better caretaker than Misen.  That's
nice of him to follow Celica here.

Also, there appears to be a sage to the north that can help
Celica's party.  That's useful.

Plot Detail 2:

Alm's party can enter a town in Regal, but they must kill
Generals Zeke and Jerome.  The people inside say, "Sofian
pigs have no clue how great Hero Rudolf is!", "Zeke went
north to the hills to find his lover.", "I think we're
going to recover.  You guys crossed Dragon Mt?", and "h,
Jeek..."

If Alm and his party defeat a wizard called Nuibaba, they
can find a captive girl named Tita.  Alm says, "What are
you doing here?  What..." Tita says, "My lover, Zeke, is a
general of Regal.  However, Zeke is against the war.  When
he betrayed Nuibaba, I was taken hostage.  Zeke will be
elated to hear of my rescue.  I want to see him."

Alm's party can fight Jerome, with Zeke's aid.  They then
can enter the town, where the people say, "Thanks...normally
I hate Sofia, but you're proof I'm wrong", "General Jerome
is a terrible man.  This village has also been sacked and
torn.", "This is Dragon Mountain.  If the Death Dragon
attacks you, you're dead meat.", and "General Jeek can't
remember anything!  Sister came here nursing a wound and
Tita was freed.  Look, the second street, Tita...oh, I'm
talking too much!"

Analysis:

Zeke lied to the Rigel people about his whereabouts (he was
not north of town).  The Rigel people are extremely loyal
to Emperor Rudolf, and hate Sofians, but Alm's party is an
exception because they saved Tita.

The dead General Jerome ransacked villages.  The people are
glad he's dead.  Well, like we heard earlier, Rigel has had
a rough time with civil war, so that shouldn't be too much
of a shock.

Plot Detail 3:

Zeke is in town.  Alm talks to him.  Zeke says, "You're the
ones who saved Teeta.  Thank you..." Alm says, "General
Zeke, I know you are opposed to the war, but please-"
Zeke says, "No, I can't help you.  After Jerome fell,
Nuibaba and Guru made life hard for the people.  I know
nothing of any war.  I do know that the land's in
ruin...his majesty sent me.  Your names...?  His majesty
took me in his arms...like a father.  Can't fail."

Alm says, "...yes...forgive me...I'm" Zeke says, "No...?!
Alm, to the right...that village."  Alm says, "Village?  I
think that thing's been there since grandpa was a baby,
but......." Zeke says, "I see.  Rudolf left me a request
before I left today: Zeke, there is a person that has a
cross-shaped birth mark.  Find that one, the chosen one.
I don't know what the meaning of that is and nor do I care.
I will lend you my power."

Analysis:

Zeke does not want to help Alm because he is opposed to the
war.  Furthermore, he is needed to help Regal, as Jerome's
demise resulted in an increase of hostility from other
people with power.

Zeke, who came from Rudolf, joins up with Alm because
Rudolf told Zeke to find Alm, a chosen one.  Zeke doesn't
know why, but joins up anyway.

Plot Detail 4:

Celica's party, goes on through a dangerous area called the
Lost Woods, which is dangerous because you get lost so
easily, hence the name.

Eventually they make it to a place hidden in the woods
called Sage Village.  Inside is Sage Hark, who Girl
mentioned earlier.

Sage Hark says, "I'm Hark!  You guys have journeyed to
restore Mera, right?  The sword you seek is sealed near
Doma's tower.  It seems futile...Judah's too powerful.  If
you let me, I'll help...hm, Cel, what's your wish?"

Celica says, "I wish nothing! ... Well, there is one
thing...please help Alm."  Hark says, "I see...Very well.
I will enable Alm to escape."  From then on, whenever you
talk to Hark, he says, "Doma's tower is near.  It is time".

Analysis:

Sage Hark is definitely the person Girl talked about.  He
wants Celica to restore Mira by going on and fighting Doma.
However, someone powerful named Judah appears to be in the
way of going on and fighting Doma.

Hark also enables Alm to escape.

Plot Detail 5:

There are two other people in Sage Village.  One says, "Doma
isn't the only one, you know.  Hark, who lives on the
outskirts, is a guard."

The other person says, "Hark is one of Doma's priests.
That means you will be fighting Judah, a difficult
undertaking.  It's the only way...go...Ugh, it hurts.
Judah's curse.  Noooo... ... ."  This person then
disappears.

Analysis:

The fact that Judah is someone you must fight to get to
Doma is confirmed. 

Plot Detail 6:

Celica's party meets Judah on the way to Doma's tower. 
Judah runs away, scared.  They enter the tower and find
Judah inside.

Judah says, "Princess of Sofia, I've waited..." Celica
says, "You are?..." Judah says, "Me?  I'm Doma's right
hand man, Domarian's main priest, Judah!" Celica says,
"Then please!  Release Mira!  Return Mother Mira!"

Judah says, "Don't be so hasty.  Look inside the crystal I
hold, see something nostalgic?  Yes, it's Alm.  Watch how
we will suffer."  From then on, only Alm can be controlled.

Analysis:

Judah's last sentence probably was supposed to use the word
he, not we.  Anyway, we know Judah is Doma's main
supporter, and that Alm means a lot to Celica if Judah's
idea of torturing her is letting her watch Alm suffer.

Plot Detail 7:

Alm ends up going through a tough fight on dragon mountain,
but wins anyway.  Judah says, "Mwaha, Celica...you saved
Alm on Dragon Mt...Come here, you have to widen Alm's
path..."  Celica follows Judah, and we see a fight start,
but then controls switch back to Alm.

Analysis:

Judah's plan to destroy Alm failed.  However, he is still
confident.  Hark "freeing" Alm is the fact that he allows
Alm to escape Dragon Mountain, which Alm could not do if
Hark didn't free him.

Plot Detail 8:

Alm finally makes it to the heart of Rigel and kills Emperor
Rudolf.  Rudolf never fights back against Alm.

Rudolf, while dying, says, "Alm, become a great hero.  Yes,
that which Misen passed down.  No mistake about it.  Oh,
come now-your real name's Albyne Alm Rudolf...my only son.

Gahhh!...there's not much more time for me.  There's only
one thing to do: Mira sealed "Falcion"-take it and
then...kill

Doma..."

Inside Rudolf's castle is Misen.  Alm asks him, "What the
hell are you talking about?!   What?!  No...Rudolf is my
father!?  It can't be!  This is terrible!"

Misen says, "Alm, I know you're upset, but now you're
Rudolf's son.  You're the last of the royal family."  Alm
says, "But why?!  Why must I now fight my own father?
Why..."

Misen says, "Don't cry, Alm...This is the path the gods
carved out for us.  Rudolf has caused many people pain.
The people of Sofia and Regel have forgotten their old
ways.  At this point, both are doomed.  Rudolf embodies all
the heroes past fought so hard to end.  He must be stopped.
I need no further evidence of the man's madness than that
one day, years ago...Rudolf had sent me children that
weren't meant to be born.  He was sending his own to hell.
(here there is a break of untranslated text) Alm, there's
always been a sadness within you.  You have to fix what
Rudolf has started.  Go to underground temple, stop the
spreading darkness.  Hurry!!  Celica's in danger!!"

Misen joins Alm's party, and ends part four.

Analysis:

Alm is, surprise, Rudolf's son!  Hey, that explains some
things, like how Alm can use the Royal sword, and why
Rudolf sent Zeke to find Alm.

Misen knew this all along.  For some reason, he didn't let
Alm know.  I think this is the official reason: Misen knew
Celica and Alm were the last members of the respective
royalties (Sofia and Rigel).  He had them grow up as
friends to ensure that when they came to rule, they would
forget the old tradition of Sofia VS Rigel kingdom, and all
Valencia would live in peace.

002e-Part Five 
-----------------------------------------------------------

Plot Detail One:

All of the people inside the castle say, "All hail Rudolf
2nd!" except for two people.

One of these two is Math.  Math says, "Prince Albine!  I'm
Menah, general of the Elite Army.  You destroyed the mine,
my orders are to kill you.  We await the one."

The other person guards a hole.  He says, "Go down those
stairs to the entrance.  After a certain point, there is no
return.  Be careful, prince."

Analysis:

Math's dialogue was translated incorrectly.  The important
thing is that Alm can now save Celica.

Plot Deatil 2:

Alm finds Celica's party, but a wall separates the two
parties.  Alm says, "! Cel-"

Celica runs to Alm and says, "Oh, help me, Alm...we've made
it here, only to die...hurry, come here..."

Analysis:

Alm has to find a way to get to the fight so Celica's party
isn't killed.  She really needs his help.

Plot Detail 3:

Alm gets the Falcion sword, and makes it to the fight.
Together, his party and Celica's fights and kills Judah,
Doma, and everyone else there.  Alm uses Falcion to kill
Doma, and then the game ends.
