    I. Introduction
    	Welcome Fire Emblem fans, and thank you for stopping by! I am a writer 
    for FAQs that do not involve gameplay, usually preferring copying down text 
    and the like. This case is no different, for you will find nothing about such 
    matters here. This FAQ is for the sole purpose of recording base conversations 
    and what it takes to receive them.
    	Base conversations are found under the section labeled 'Info' in the 
    base, which you visit before the vast majority of chapters. You can also see 
    base conversations in the final five-part chapter, though this is not done in 
    a base; rather, you see them in a menu. 
    	What these conversations do varies depending on the amount of stars 
    next to it. One star means it is not important to the gameplay, but often is 
    worth looking at anyway for character development. Two stars means it is 
    moderately important; to be honest, I did not notice many two-star 
    conversations. Three stars means you will either gain an item, gold, or a new 
    character! These are obviously the most important to view, though I would 
    advise looking at all of them for fun. 
    	This feature was in Path of Radiance as well, but what I enjoy about 
    this game is that they added base conversations you got in the Extras menu, so 
    you can see them again after beating the game! This FAQ is for people who 
    either cannot get the game, do not want to beat the game but are interested in 
    seeing more development, or for people who do not want to bother going through 
    the game multiple times to get various conversations. For instance, an 
    infamous Ike and Soren conversation has pretty hefty requirements; you must 
    have gotten their A support in Path of Radiance, transfer the data, get their 
    A support in Radiant Dawn, and be on your second playthrough! Other annoying 
    ones to get include having certain characters in your party at part four, when 
    you may not want to bother. So even though you can see them in the Extras 
    menu, there is still purpose to this FAQ.
    	I warn you that there will be spoilers if you have not completed the 
    game. Read at your own risk!
    	For the record, this FAQ is not done yet. I am sure I am missing some 
    conversations that I simply did not meet the requirements for. Also, I might 
    have a few errors in the 'requirements' department. If anyone sees a problem 
    in this FAQ, please, try to contact me through the Radiant Dawn game board or 
    via email. Hopefully I will receive it; my email has been annoying before.
    	That concludes the introduction. Enjoy reading some of the best 
    development characters in this game get, seeing as supports barely do it! (I 
    doubt I will ever get over that.)
    II. Version History
    Version 0.87-12/06/07: First version of this FAQ. Contains 88 out of 101 
    base conversations. 13 left to go. I am aware many of them require a second 
    playthrough of the game, and plan on tackling that swiftly. Most specifically 
    need to know if the requirements I listed for supports are correct.

    Chapter Four: A Distant Voice
    Name: In Town
    Importance: ***
    Requirements: None
    Receive: Meg (Character)
    Micaiah: Sothe, have you noticed...
    Sothe: Yes. Ever since we arrived here.
    ???: ...
    Sothe: What should we do?
    Micaiah: Hmm, I can't sense any malice. Whoever it is doesn't seem to mean us 
    any harm, but... Yes, let's do it.
    Sothe: All right. On three, then. One... two... three!
    ???: Ahh!
    Meg: Hey!
    Micaiah: There, now we can see your face.
    Sothe: You're... a girl?
    Meg: I-I'm sorry!
    Micaiah: No! Wait! Please don't run!
    Meg: ...
    Micaiah: My name is Micaiah. Don't be afraid.
    Sothe: Have you gone mad? Don't tell her your name! We're on the run, remember?
    Micaiah: It's all right. She's not after us.
    Meg: ...
    Micaiah: This is my... brother, Sothe. We're from Nevassa.
    Meg: Oh... uhh... hi there.
    Micaiah: And you are?
    Meg: I'm Meg.
    Sothe: What are you doing out here on the edge of the desert?
    Meg: I'm looking for someone. Someone very important. Someone close to my 
    Micaiah: All by yourself?
    Meg: Yes.
    Sothe: You're meeting someone way out here?
    Meg: I'm not sure, exactly. All I know is that this is where he came before he 
    disappeared. I thought maybe he went into the desert...
    Micaiah: What a coincidence. We're also looking for someone in the desert. 
    Would you like to come along?
    Meg: Really? Are you sure?
    Micaiah: Of course.
    Meg: Oh, thank you! I've been so lonely since I left Crimea all on my own.
    Sothe: You came all the way from Crimea? I'm surprised you've made it this far.
    Micaiah: That's it then. Welcome aboard, Meg. You're one of us now.
    Name: Merchants
    Importance: **
    Requirements: None
    Receive: None
    Aimee: Oh, there you are. Can we have a word with you?
    Micaiah: Aimee, Muston. How may I help you?
    Aimee: Relax, honey. I'm here to tell you about our business. You like to 
    shop, don't you?
    Sothe: Let me guess, you want to sell us weapons and other items. Am I right?
    Aimee: That's right. OUr inventory changes depending on where we are and what 
    time it is.
    Muston: But one thing is always the same. We guarantee fair prices! So stop by 
    whenever you can.
    Micaiah: Do you carry tomes?
    Muston: Yep. Fire, Thunder, Wind, Light... We've got your basics covered.
    Aimee: My shop also has lots of staves and medicine. Oh, and I have recently 
    made some... key connections. Now I carry some very rare items. They're one of 
    a kind, and very valuable. You should come have a look! Rare weapons too. 
    Honestly, you should buy them before someone else does! At these prices, 
    they're bound to sell quickly.
    Muston: Well, that's our spiel. Thanks for listening.
    Aimee: Do come by! We'll be waiting.
    Name: More Merchants
    Importance: **
    Requirements: None
    Receive: One free weapon upgrade
    Jorge: Well, hello! Don't mind us! We won't take but a moment of your time...
    Micaiah: Hello, Jorge. Hello, Daniel.
    Daniel: We just wanted to tell you a little about what we can do for YOU.
    Sothe: I've already told her. Jorge will buy from us any items or weapons that 
    we no longer need. And Daniel--
    Jorge: Hey! Excuse me, we're here to talk to Micaiah! Not to some stuffy, 
    know-it-all pun--
    Daniel: Jorge, don't be rude! I'm sorry about that, Sothe. Anyway, we just 
    wanted to tell you about some changes we made to our business.
    Sothe: All right, then. I'll keep my mouth shut as long as Daniel does the 
    Daniel: Thank you.
    Micaiah: So, what do you have, Daniel?
    Jorge: Hey, thanks for asking! I've got a guy who's a master blacksmith. He 
    makes weapons you wouldn't believe... and they're not available anywhere else!
    Daniel: Hey, thanks a lot, Jorge! I make weapons too... pretty good ones, if I 
    do say so myself! It's just, you know, customs have been extremely tight 
    lately... raw materials are so hard to come by... Which reminds me, if you 
    ever have weapons you don't need, would you sell them to us?
    Jorge: Yes, please. Actually, even better... sell me your weapons, and I'll 
    give them to Daniel. Then he can smelt them down and use the steel for newer, 
    shinier pieces!
    Daniel: It costs some money to upgrade weapons, but... But hey, let's face it, 
    it's worth the money. Owning a custom-made weapon sets you apart from the 
    common soldier!
    Jorge: Oh, and here's a one-time-only deal! I won't even charge you for 
    materials on your first upgrade! Pretty nice, huh? Now you have no excuse not 
    to come by. Got that, Micaiah?
    Micaiah: Um... yes. Thank you.
    Sothe: ...
    Daniel: One last thing. If you ever bring me a coin, I'll give you a little 
    bonus on whatever I'm making for you. They're very rare, so be sure to hang on 
    to them. Don't sell them to some stranger!
    Name: Kurth
    Importance: *
    Requirements: None
    Receive: None
    Micaiah: What are you doing out here, Kurth?
    Kurth: Hello, Micaiah. Pay me no mind. I'm just watching the desert. How the 
    wind changes the sandscape... The ebb and flow of the dunes, like giant swells 
    in the ocean. I find it mesmerizing.
    Micaiah: Is this your first time in the desert?
    Kurth: Yes. My homeland is ringed with mountains. Everything about Daein looks 
    new and curious to my eyes.
    Micaiah: I see.
    Kurth: ...You have not asked.
    Micaiah: I'm sorry?
    Kurth: You have not asked me who I am or where I am from. Not just you, 
    Micaiah, but the others as well. No one seeks to know who I am.
    Micaiah: You seem not to want to talk about yourself. Am I right?
    Kurth: Yes... Quite right.
    Micaiah: That's why no one asks. People can tell when someone wants privacy. 
    Many of us desire privacy too. Kurth, you are not our enemy. I know that much. 
    You are kind and gentle. That is all I need to know.
    Kurth: Thank you...
    Chapter Five: The Lost Heir
    Name: Sothe
    Importance: ***
    Requirements: None
    Receive: 10,000 Gold
    Sothe: Hey, Micaiah. I sold the treasures we took from the ruins. We have 
    traveling cash now.
    Micaiah: How did we do?
    Sothe: We have 10,000 in gold.
    Micaiah: Great! That'll help a lot.
    Sothe: Maybe. We could use more.
    Micaiah: Sothe, 10,000 is plenty. We just need enough money to live on. More 
    than that, and the soul becomes impoverished.
    Sothe: I know, I know. We should be rich of heart and poor of pocket... Me, I 
    just follow your orders.
    Name: Nailah
    Importance: ***
    Requirements: None
    Receive: Volug (Character)
    Nailah: So, you're returning to the desert?
    Micaiah: Yes. We must go back.
    Rafiel: My dear...
    Nailah: Yes, Rafiel, I know. Micaiah, I have a question. How can we help you 
    in this fight?
    Micaiah: What? But...
    Nailah: I know you probably don't want to be seen with laguz. But we cannot 
    just sit on our paws, so to speak, while our allies are in danger.
    Micaiah: I appreciate that, but...
    Nailah: No? Fine. Sorry to bother you.
    Micaiah: No, no. It's not what you think. Please don't apologize. It's just 
    Nailah: What is it, Volug?
    Volug: ...
    Nailah: I see. That is a good idea.
    Rafiel: Oh, yes. I agree. That is a wonderful idea.
    Micaiah: Yes? Volug? What's going on?
    Nailah: Micaiah, it will not seem so strange if you travel into the desert 
    with this dog at your side, will it?
    Micaiah: What?!
    Nailah: As you know, we laguz fight only in our shifted forms. However, we 
    can't remain in that state for very long. It is too exhausting. Volug, 
    however, has halfshifted. When he does this, he can remain in beast form all 
    day long.
    Micaiah: Queen Nailah, I appreciate your help--
    Nailah: He is not as strong in this transitional form. Even so, he is still 
    more than a match for any beorc.
    Micaiah: How could you call Volug a dog?!
    Nailah: I know. He's not as friendly as a dog. And I don't know if he's 
    housebroken. But he can fight!
    Micaiah: That is not what I meant.
    Nailah: Micaiah. We wish you good luck. Volug, guard her well.
    Rafiel: Do be careful.
    Micaiah: I will. Thank you. Volug, is she always so... blunt?
    Name: Laura and Aran
    Importance: *
    Requirements: Have Laura alive, recruit Aran, and have him alive
    Receive: None
    Micaiah: So, you are an old friend of Laura's?
    Aran: Yes. I'm afraid I must apologize for my poor choice in employers.
    Micaiah: Please don't worry about it. After all, you saved us.
    Aran: When I saw Laura, I simply couldn't stand by any longer.
    Laura: Thank you, Aran.
    Aran: I've been meaning to ask you, Laura. What's become of your church? I'd 
    heard that, since the occupation, most of Daein's clergy have been 
    excommunicated and sent to prisons. I know that the empire sent its own 
    replacements. Was your church affected?
    Laura: No, thankfully. Our congregation would always say... "The clergy of the 
    empire wouldn't even consider coming to a dingy church in a backwater village 
    like this! You've been spared, Minister!" Ha ha ha... We extended our prayer 
    time to thank the goddess for saving our church.
    Aran: Ah... I see.
    Laura: Oh, Aran. I meant to tell you, now that you're one of us, you'll have 
    to become a bandit.
    Micaiah: Excuse me?
    Aran: I'm sorry... a bandit?
    Laura: There's really no need to worry. The Dawn Brigade bandits have virtuous 
    people like Micaiah in their ranks.
    Aran: Er... Okaaay...
    Micaiah: No, we're not ban--
    Laura: But always remember, Aran. We must strive above all else to be 
    honorable bandits. For the future of Daein.
    Aran: Uh... All right...
    Micaiah: ...Bandits?
    Name: Dawn Brigade
    Importance: *
    Requirements: Edward, Leonardo, and Nolan must be alive
    Receive: None
    Edward: Oh, man... Where is this prince, anyway? I wanna go home to Nevassa.
    Leonardo: A long-lost prince of Daein? Who even knows if he really exists...
    Edward: Of course he does!
    Leonardo: How do you know? Do you have any proof?
    Edward: Simple. Micaiah told us we should look for the prince. So, it's gotta 
    be true!
    Leonardo: Yeah, you're right. Her farsight is always spot on.
    Edward: Even if we don't find him, there's no need to worry... 'cause I'm here!
    Leonardo: Excuse me?
    Edward: Since we left Nevassa, my swordsmanship has pretty much improved 
    tenfold! By the time we get back home, I'll be invincible! I'll kick those 
    tyrants out of Daein with my own two hands and one sharp blade!
    Leonardo: It's great to have a dream, Edward... but you should wake up now!
    Edward: Are you saying I'm not good enough?!
    Leonardo: No. I'm saying there's a limit to how much one person can achieve. 
    I'm going to do the best I can, but... It doesn't matter how strong the two of 
    us become. We can't change what's going on in Daein. Not by ourselves.
    Edward: Well, duh! I'm just saying it's a goal! You know? Just something to 
    work toward.
    Leonardo: Sure. But you shouldn't say such things lightly. It might be just a 
    joke to you. It's not to me.
    Edward: Wow. Sorry.
    Leonardo: Yeah, well. So am I. I didn't mean to get so serious. All the 
    fighting... it just gets to me sometimes.
    Nolan: Hey, boys. What is this, a funeral? What's with all the doom and gloom?
    Edward: Nolan.
    Nolan: I couldn't help but overhear, and I have a little to say on the 
    subject. You're right, each of us can only achieve so much on our own. But you 
    boys are still young. Don't let go of your hopes and dreams. Not yet, anyway.
    Leonardo: But...
    Nolan: Listen, there's no way we can free Daein by ourselves. But we CAN find 
    King Ashnard's lost son and fight against the empire under Daein's banner. If 
    we gather our strength, we stand a better chance of freeing our motherland. 
    Now then, how's that for a little motivation to get your sorry backsides into 
    training harder?
    Edward: That's great! Thanks, Nolan. You're pretty smart for an old man!
    Nolan: Hey, now... None of that, or I'll show you what an old man can do! 
    Leonardo, are you feeling better?
    Leonardo: Yes, sir. Thank you, Nolan. I guess age does make you wiser.
    Nolan: How old do you think I am, anyway? Now I'm getting depressed...
    Chapter Six: Raise the Standard
    Name: Outside the Village
    Importance: ***
    Requirements: None
    Receive: 1,000 Gold
    ???: Yes, that's what I heard! What with that light... and that silver...
    Lass: Could she... Could she be the Silver-Haired Maiden?
    Micaiah: Hm?
    Lass: Oh, it is! It is you!
    Grandmother: Oh... Oh, my...
    Lass: You're fighting with King Ashnard's son to free Daein, aren't you? Oh, 
    we've heard so much about you!
    Grandmother: Oh... what a blessing! What a blessing!
    Lass: We're all waiting! We're waiting for the day you free us from those 
    filthy Begnion pigs!
    Grandmother: Please... take... this.
    Lass: It's not much, but people from all over the village pitched in.
    Micaiah: Oh, no, I couldn't possibly...
    Sothe: Thank you. We appreciate your kindness.
    Grandmother: ...
    Lass: We're all counting on you! Please, free us!
    Micaiah: ...
    Sothe: Looks like Izuka's propaganda is working fast.
    Micaiah: Mm.
    Sothe: You didn't want me to take the money, did you?
    Micaiah: It's not that. It's just... Oh, never mind.
    Sothe: Oh, come on. What did I do this time? You're not going to say? Great. 
    In that case, let's get out of here and go find the others.
    Name: Kurth
    Importance: ***
    Requirements: None
    Receive: Renewal (Skill)
    Kurth: So, you're staying, then?
    Almedha: I appreciate your concern. However, I--
    Kurth: You can't leave Prince Pelleas's side. Is that not so?
    Almedha: That's right.
    Kurth: Then take this, at least.
    Almedha: A sending stone?
    Kurth: Do you remember how to use one?
    Almedha: Of course I remember how to use one. But it's such a precious gift... 
    Are you sure about this? Thank you, Kurth.
    ???: Kurth! Where are you?
    Almedha: I must go now.
    Kurth: Please, remain safe.
    Almedha: You as well.
    Kurth: ...
    Micaiah: Kurth?
    Kurth: Micaiah. How nice to see you.
    Micaiah: Kurth, I'm leaving for Terin. I know this is sudden. To tell the 
    truth, I'm surprised too.
    Kurth: I see. You are off to perform your first duties as a general of this 
    "Liberation Army."
    Micaiah: Yes.
    Kurth: I abhor violence. I do not think you should fight.
    Micaiah: Kurth, I'm not fighting because I enj--
    Kurth: I know. I know you wish there were another way. And I understand that 
    you feel this is what you must do to save your country.
    Micaiah: ...
    Kurth: Here, take this.
    Micaiah: What is it?
    Kurth: May it serve to protect you. Micaiah, I must leave you now. I am going 
    home to my own country.
    Micaiah: What? So suddenly?
    Kurth: I'm sorry, Micaiah. Being so close to battle frightens me, to tell the 
    truth. Thank you for rescuing me. And thank you for the short time we spent 
    together. I enjoyed it immensely.
    Micaiah: Will I ever see you again?
    Kurth: Who knows? Why don't we... Yes. Let us leave it up to the goddess.
    Micaiah: I suppose we must.
    Chapter Seven: A Gathering Hope
    Name: Companions
    Importance: *
    Requirements: Meg must be recruited, and she and Zihark must be alive
    Receive: None
    Meg: H-hello...
    Zihark: Oh, hello there.
    Meg: H-h-hello.
    Zihark: Yes... hello. Now that we have that established, what can I do for you?
    Meg: Um... Uh... I... I'm... Meg.
    Zihark: Yes, I know. It's nice to meet you, Meg. That's a very nice name.
    Meg: And, uh... I'm from Crimea.
    Zihark: Yep, I'm one step ahead of you! Heard that too. You're far away from 
    home now, aren't you? Quite an independent girl, eh?
    Meg: Um, and, my village... It's called Ohma.
    Zihark: Oh! You're from Ohma? Now that's something I did not know.
    Meg: Yes.
    Zihark: Then you must know Brom... Hold on a second... You look exactly like 
    him. Are you two related?
    Meg: We sure are! I'm his daughter. His... youngest daughter.
    Zihark: Oh, I've heard stories! He loves to tell stories about his kids. He 
    said that you could lift a full-grown cow! It's nice to meet the person I've 
    heard so much about! How is Brom? Doing well?
    Meg: Yes! Yes, he is! He works ALL the time. I do wish he would slow down...
    Zihark: Ah, yes. Well, it's good to hear he's staying busy. Brom, huh? Wow, 
    brings back memories... Well, if you're his daughter, I'll do whatever I can 
    to help you. You said you were looking for somebody? who is this person?
    Meg: Well... He's my... He's my fiance.
    Zihark: How could any guy leave a girl like you? What's this lucky guy's 
    name? What's he like?
    Meg: Well... he's standing right in front of me.
    Zihark: I'm sorry, I'm sure I misheard you. Can you repeat that? ...Slowly?
    Meg: My daddy told us years ago that he was going to marry one of us to a 
    really nice friend of his, a mercenary named Zihark.
    Zihark: Whoa, hey now... I don't, uh...
    Meg: But my older sister got married last year, and so I came instead! Oh, 
    it's so nice to finally meet my husband!
    Zihark: Meg, look, this is kind of crazy...
    Meg: Zihark... I'm sure I still have a lot to learn... But after meeting you, 
    I just know we'll live happily ever after!
    Zihark: Meg, I need you to listen very closely...
    Meg: Oh, don't worry! I'll work hard every waking moment to become a good 
    wife! Even during a fight! See you later, pookums!
    Zihark: Meg, wait! Wow, she's downright pushy. She must get that from her old 
    man. ...And did she just call me "pookums"?
    Name: Pelleas
    Importance: ***
    Requirements: None
    Receive: Brave Sword (Sword)
    Pelleas: Sorry to call you here like this. Forgive me.
    Micaiah: It's quite all right.
    Pelleas: Can I pour you some tea? Or is there something else you would prefer?
    Micaiah: I'm fine, thank you. What did you want to speak with me about?
    Pelleas: I know you are angry with me. Please, forgive me.
    Micaiah: Can you tell me why you stopped showing up at our meetings?
    Pelleas: It was at Izuka's request.
    Micaiah: You are the leader of this army! You cannot simply leave all the 
    decisions to someone else!
    Pelleas: ...I'm sorry. I'll ask Izuka before the next meeting. I need his 
    permission to attend.
    Micaiah: Why? You're the prince. Why should you need any man's permission, 
    much less your own advisor's?
    Pelleas: Yes, I am the prince, but... I owe much to Izuka. He taught me 
    everything I needed to know to become a proper member of the royal family. He 
    contacted Tauroneo and the other senators from Daein for help. Without his 
    power and influence, I would never have mustered an army--or met my own mother.
    Micaiah: I see. You were alone...
    Pelleas: Pardon?
    Micaiah: And then Izuka reunited you with your mother, gave you a place to 
    stay, and provided you with a reason to live. And you feel you owe him a debt 
    of gratitude for ending your loneliness. That is why you try to do as you are 
    told--as Izuka wishes.
    Pelleas: Micaiah, you're--
    Micaiah: I'm sorry! I didn't mean to--That was inappropriate.
    Pelleas: You're amazing!
    Micaiah: Amazing?
    Pelleas: You really can read minds! I'm simply amazed! You saw right through 
    Micaiah: ...
    Pelleas: Sorry, I got too excited. Look at me, I'm sweating.
    Micaiah: Prince Pelleas!
    Pelleas: What is it? Why are you looking at me like that?
    Micaiah: That mark...
    Pelleas: Oh... that.
    Micaiah: What is it?
    Pelleas: It's called the Spirit's Protection. The source of all magic in this 
    world is tied to the power of the spirits. When you make a pact with such a 
    spirit, its power manifests on your body like this.
    Micaiah: I... see.
    Pelleas: What am I saying? You already know all of this, of course. You have 
    the Spirit's Protection, too.
    Micaiah: What?
    Pelleas: I saw you washing your hands the other day. When I walked up to say 
    hello, I saw the mark on your right hand.
    Micaiah: You saw...
    Pelleas: I thought of confiding in you right away, but my mother called for 
    me. I didn't get a chance to tell you until now.
    Micaiah: Do you think this mark is really the Spirit's Protection?
    Pelleas: Oh! You didn't enter into the pact yourself?
    Micaiah: No.
    Pelleas: I see. So, it must have been the spirit who wished to make a pact 
    with you.
    Micaiah: Pardon?
    Pelleas: It's a very rare phenomenon among newborns. Usually it happens to 
    infants who have an exceptional talent for magic. You truly are amazing, 
    Micaiah: I don't know about that...
    Pelleas: Let's keep this among ourselves... We don't want people to confuse us 
    with the Branded.
    Micaiah: What are the "Branded"?
    Pelleas: I'm pretty sure it refers to beorc who have laguz blood in their 
    veins. I know, it's hard to imagine someone with the blood of a sub-human 
    running through their veins. Anyway, I've been terribly mistreated by people 
    who thought I was one of the Branded.
    Micaiah: ...
    Pelleas: Micaiah?
    Micaiah: Oh... sorry. I think I understand more about you now, and about the 
    marks we share...
    Pelleas: I'm glad I was able to tell you. I'm surprised you didn't know. Come 
    talk to me again sometime.
    Micaiah: Certainly.
    Pelleas: Oh, I almost forgot. Here. I wanted to give you this.
    Micaiah: What is it?
    Pelleas: It's this splendid sword I recently acquired. It gives its wielder 
    the upper hand in battle. Keep it or give it to whomever you like.
    Micaiah: Shouldn't you give it to the soldier you deem most worthy?
    Pelleas: No, I wouldn't want the soldiers thinking I'm giving anyone special 
    treatment. It would be inappropriate. That's what Izuka says, anyway. So I 
    think you should do it.
    Micaiah: I understand. You must have so much on your mind.
    Pelleas: Indeed. I long for the old days when I was poor, but had few worries.
    Micaiah: Prince Pelleas...
    Pelleas: But I'll keep fighting. I won't stop until Daein is free once more.
    Micaiah: Hear, hear!

    Sothe: We're just about ready. Let's talk to Tormod, and--
    Micaiah: ...
    Sothe: Micaiah?
    Micaiah: Oh, sorry.
    Sothe: Hey, remember our promise from three years ago? There are no secrets 
    between us.
    Micaiah: Sothe, Muarim knows that I'm older than I look.
    Sothe: I see. Well, don't worry too much about it. You can trust him.
    Micaiah: Yes, I'm sure of that. Muarim seems very trustworthy. But, what about 
    everyone else? What would they think if they knew all of my abilities came 
    from the mixed blood running through my veins? Blood they consider cursed!
    Sothe: Micaiah, stop...
    Micaiah: Right now, when they look at me, they have love and affection in 
    their eyes, but would they look at me the same way if they knew? I don't want 
    to find out, Sothe. I don't think I could bear the truth.
    Sothe: You know, we can stop.
    Micaiah: What do you mean?
    Sothe: Look, this was an impossible situation to begin with. You've always 
    led such a secluded life... Ever since you were thrust into this position, I 
    worried that the pressure might get to you.
    Micaiah: You're right. I knew it would turn out like this. Despite that, I 
    accepted the job. I can't stop now.
    Sothe: But, Micaiah...
    Micaiah: Listen, Sothe. I realized something after Daein lost the war.
    Sothe: What's that?
    Micaiah: I realized how much I loved my country.
    Sothe: And?
    Micaiah: During the war, I spent a lot of time with the people of Daein while 
    I was waiting for you to return. After we lost the war, all our cities and 
    towns had been reduced to ruins. We had to help each other to cope. We 
    supported and comforted each other. That's how we survived.
    Sothe: You never mentioned this before.
    Micaiah: I've been secluded so long, I had no idea people were so strong... 
    and kind. No one knew who I was, but they helped me because I was from Daein. 
    They were so... loving. They were my friends.
    Sothe: And now you won't leave them.
    Micaiah: I was touched by their kindness. Now, I'm scared to lose it. Very 
    Sothe: Micaiah...
    Micaiah: I suppose this isn't the time to worry about such things. If my 
    power is needed to liberate Daein, I will stand my ground and fight.
    Sothe: Well, not to spoil your resolve... But if things get too hot, I'm 
    just going to grab you and run.
    Micaiah: Sothe...
    Sothe: Friends and Daein are important, but not as important as you are to 
    me. Remember that.
    Micaiah: ...All right. Thank you, Sothe.

    keep the prince safe, General Tauroneo.
    Sothe: I'll protect Micaiah. I've enlisted extra help, too. We'll make it 
    back in one piece.
    Tauroneo: I place my trust in you, Sothe. Best of luck. Oh, I nearly forgot. 
    You should take this.
    Micaiah: What a peculiar staff... What power does it possess?
    Tauroneo: It is a restore staff. It will help you recover from poison, sleep, 
    and paralysis. Enemies will use every method they possess to destroy you. It 
    is best that you be prepared for every eventuality.
    Micaiah: Thank you, General Tauroneo. We will return safely.

    Vika: ...
    Micaiah: You always run away from me... Did I do something to offend you?
    Vika: No, I'm so sorry. I can't explain why this happens. I get so jumpy 
    around you. There's just... something about you.
    Micaiah: Oh...
    Vika: Oh, but please don't be sad! It's not you. It's me. I get... confused... 
    sometimes. I really admire you, and then I get a bizarre feeling, and...
    Micaiah: It's all right. Sorry to bother you.
    Vika: ...No. Wait.
    Micaiah: Hm?
    Vika: I want to overcome this. I don't like that I feel I must avoid you for 
    some inexplicable reason.
    Micaiah: But...
    Vika: I know how painful it is to be... feared. I'm really, really sorry. 
    Let's be friends, OK? If you can forgive me, that is...
    Micaiah: Of course I forgive you! Thank you, Vika. I'd be honored to have your 
    Vika: Here. Take this as a token of that friendship. Please, take it. I'd like 
    you to have it.
    Micaiah: What a beautiful figurine. The goddess looks so serene.
    Vika: Carry it with you. It'll bring you good luck. I met my boss and Muarim 
    thanks to that figurine.

    Sothe: Prince Pelleas. You here to see Micaiah?
    Pelleas: Yes. At least, I intended to. But she is quite popular, isn't she? 
    She's always so busy talking to everyone that I can never get near her.
    Sothe: They're your soldiers. Tell them to get out of the way.
    Pelleas: No, I can't do that. My job is to be the symbol of Daein's 
    liberation. But the Priestess of Dawn is no mere symbol. For her, the soldiers 
    will gladly give their lives.
    Sothe: Prince Pelleas?
    Pelleas: Oh, don't worry, Sothe. I'm not jealous, if that's what you're 
    thinking. It isn't like that. Although I have to admit, I do envy her from 
    time to time.
    Sothe: Hm.
    Pelleas: I almost forgot. Here. These war funds are for you.
    Sothe: But the war's over. And, besides, this is a small fortune.
    Pelleas: Yes, well, share it with the troops if you like. I may not be much a 
    leader, but I truly appreciate the sacrifices everyone has made. They deserve 
    something in return. Divide it up as you see fit. I trust your judgment.
    Sothe: Prince Pelleas, you should be the one to give the troops their reward.

    Jill: Lady Micaiah.
    Micaiah: Hello, Jill. What are you doing here?
    Jill: I saw you walking over here as I was heading back to my tent. Is 
    something wrong? You shouldn't be leaving camp by yourself.
    Micaiah: I'm just exhausted from talking to so many people. But there's no 
    need for concern. I just need some time to myself.
    Jill: Now that you mention it, you do look a little pale. Why not rest in your 
    tent? It'd be much more comfortable.
    Micaiah: I don't want Sothe and the others to know how tired I am. They worry 
    too much.
    Jill: Ah, I can see that. Sothe seems so detached from everything, unless it 
    involves you... He gets so... worked up. He strikes me as a bit overprotective.
    Micaiah: We've always lived by ourselves, just the two of us. I don't think he 
    can help it.
    Jill: Then I shall bring you some medicine, and I'll make sure no one sees me. 
    I'll meet you at your tent.
    Micaiah: Oh, no, that won't be necessary! Do you see that tree? I'll be 
    resting over there. I should recover in no time.
    Jill: But...
    Micaiah: I'll be safe. We're still in camp. Besides, don't you have an errand 
    of your own to take care of? It must be really important to leave the feast so 
    early in the evening.
    Jill: Oh, no, not really. I just thought I'd write a letter to a friend. 
    That's all.
    Micaiah: To the man you told me about? The one you run a wyvern delivery 
    service with?
    Jill: Well... um, yes. You know everything, don't you, Lady Micaiah?
    Micaiah: You're going to tell him that the fighting is over, right?
    Jill: Yes. More than anything, he despises trouble. He made a delivery to 
    Begnion, and never returned. I'm sure it's the war that has kept him away.
    Micaiah: Really?
    Jill: Well, indirectly, at least. To be honest, it's probably more about his 
    napping. Give him a few minutes of free time, and he's sure to close his eyes 
    and drift away. The war would certainly disrupt his sleep schedule.
    Micaiah: What an... interesting fellow. Well, you should write him and let him 
    know it's safe to return.
    Jill: Are you sure you're all right? You're not pushing yourself too hard?
    Micaiah: I'm fine. Please, don't worry about me.
    Jill: All right. I'll let you relax alone, then. Oh, but here... Please take

    Micaiah: Yes, that's right.
    Fiona: Oh, I'm glad I remembered correctly. Then please, take this.
    Micaiah: For me? Are you sure?
    Fiona: It's a token of appreciation for letting me--and Marado--join your army.
    Micaiah: We're lucky to have you. And thank you. I'll use this tome well.
    Fiona: Listening to Prince Pelleas's speech earlier, I'm certain that Daein 
    will exist anew. It will be a greater and more unified country than ever 
    Micaiah: I agree. So many things have happened along the way, but I am glad 
    to be here now. I feel happy... and very proud.

    her, she'd prob'ly just let ya talk to 'er, noble or not.
    Heather: The nerve of that Duke Ludveck! He ruined my one chance to meet the 
    queen. I won't stand for it! He needs a kick in the rear! Or a punch in the 
    mouth! The things I'd do to him...
    Nephenee: Uhm... Heather? You sure are a lovely gal and all, but... You sure 
    do say some funny things.
    Brom: Can't argue with that, Nephenee. But that's just the way folks are. They 
    ain't always what they appear to be. Ain't nobody perfect, neither. 'Less 
    you're talkin' 'bout the goddess, that is.

    both to accompany me to Felirae.
    Brom: Hmm. Naw, that won't be a problem. You goin' ta catch the duke?
    Lucia: Something a little more... preliminary. I guess you could call it 
    Brom: Espio-what? Sounds serious! Nephenee, you ever hearda that?
    Nephenee: Oh, sure. When I was just a sprout, I caught a real bad case'a 
    that. I got this awful rash all over my back, too!

    Lucia: Lady Lethe, Sir Mordecai, I... Well...
    Lethe: We could return to Gallia and bring back soldiers to help, you know. As 
    an ally in a time of crisis, I'm certain our king would lend support.
    Lucia: No, Lady Lethe. This is an internal affair. We don't want to have to 
    involve Gallia in Crimea's civil problems.
    Mordecai: More fighters are always better. THe people of Gallia... All will 
    fight for Queen Elincia.
    Lucia: Listen, I know you mean well, but I just can't allow it. I'm sorry, 
    but if there were even a hint of Gallia's assistance, there would be even 
    more problems in the royal court.
    Mordecai: Problems? What problems?
    Lethe: This conflict isn't exactly a life-or-death situation for Crimea, 
    so... Relying on support from a laguz nation would cause an uproar with the 
    nobility. Is that what you mean?
    Lucia: Yes, unfortunately. I'm ashamed to admit it, but it's the truth.
    Lethe: No. It's common sense, given the history of both our nations. I 
    completely understand. We won't report this to Gallia.
    Lucia: Thank you for understanding. I apologize for troubling you.
    Mordecai: No, it is fine.
    Lethe: Why this tactic of rousing the people to rebel against the queen, 
    though? Any laguz who wanted to be king would fight for it with teeth and 
    claws, as is proper. You beorc are always wasting time talking.
    Lucia: Our society is very complex. There's history and tradition, unwritten 
    law and custom. There are lots of reasons for why we--
    Lethe: Bah! Attempts to compromise won't get you anywhere. You should just 
    kill him and get it over with.
    Mordecai: Mordecai feels sad. Poor Queen Elincia... We cannot help her.

    Calill: Oh, I see why you're here. It's about time, too. I'm ready to string 
    that blathering drunkard up by his heels.
    Makalov: Ta dah...! Whoops... Who put that chair there? I could have been 
    killed! Lady Calill, you beckoned?
    Geoffrey: Makalov, why are you drinking? You realize that tomorrow we have a 
    battle to fight, yes?
    Makalov: Greetings, General! My, you're looking even more dashing and handsome 
    than usual, Your Excellency.
    Calill: Good grief... That man's an embarrassment. Are you sure he's a Royal 
    Knight? He's like a pig pretending to fly. Why not put a dog in armor and 
    call it "sir"!
    Astrid: Miss Calill, that's not very nice! I think Sir Makalov deserves a 
    little more respect than that.
    Calill: Are you blind, Astrid? It's the night before a mission, and that fool 
    is stinking drunk. Probably gambled all his money away, too. And you! You 
    follow him around mooning over him and cleaning up his messes! Do you have no 
    pride, girl? What the man needs is someone to slap some sense into him. 
    Perhaps I should--
    Astrid: I've chosen to look after Sir Makalov! Nobody's forced me to do it. 
    And it's really none of your business!
    Calill: You know, I'm really starting to wonder about your "good 
    upbringing." Of all the men out there, what possessed you to place your bets 
    on such a shabby prospect?
    Astrid: Wh-what did you just say!? There are no gentlemen in this land half as 
    fine as Sir Makalov!
    Geoffrey: Oh my...
    Largo: All right, settle down, everybody. Keep this up and the general's gonna 
    pretend he doesn't know either of you.
    Calill: Fine, fine. I'm sorry, all right? Happy? So... what was it that you 
    needed with that ale-soaked oaf, anyway?
    Geoffrey: I just wanted to go over our battle plan one last time before 
    Largo: I heard you're going after the duke of Felirae? You think you can 
    handle him?
    Geoffrey: Of course. However, he's been marshalling his forces for quite some 
    time now. Which means our preparations will have to be flawless if we want to 
    end this quickly.
    Largo: If only I were up to it. You know me. Hah! I'd crush him! I'd kick him 
    Calill: Well, I suppose I could go? Someone of my wisdom and power is easily 
    worth two of you clods.
    Largo: Yeah! That's a great idea, lamb-blossom. Like I always say, the best 
    enemies are the ones that are on fire.
    Geoffrey: I'm sorry, but no. Although I do appreciate the enthusiasm.
    Calill: I don't see the problem! Do you think I've gone soft! My magic is 
    still in tip-top shape, I'll have you know!
    Geoffrey: No. It's just that I'm sure Queen Elincia wouldn't be pleased with 
    civilians fighting against their countrymen.
    Calill: Hmm. I suppose you have a point.
    Danved: In that case, let Danved join you. Danved is not a citizen of Crimea. 
    Danved will fight like ten men.
    Geoffrey: Devdan! When did you get here?
    Largo: Actually, General... This, uh... This is not Devdan. This is a friend 
    of mine, Danved.
    Danved: Yes, it's true. People often make that mistake. But Danved is 
    definitely not Devdan.
    Geoffrey: Uh-huh. You look exactly like him.
    Largo: Doesn't he?! Amazing, isn't it? Anyway, you can take him with you. Oh, 
    and no pressure, but the fate of our country depends on the Royal Knights. 
    Good luck! Don't blow it!
    Danved: Danved will fight like a bear! like a tiger! We don't need Largo and 
    Calill, because Danved is pretty amazing.

    tomorrow's tactics. Good luck with that. As for that useless drunk... I'll

    Elincia: I asked your servant for it, and he gave it to me.
    Geoffrey: Why would Your Majesty, as queen, do such a thing? Who knows how 
    tangled the web of rumors could become, because of that...
    Elincia: Let the court say what it wishes. You are far more important to me 
    than the whispers of nattering nobles.
    Geoffrey: ...You don't need to say that.
    Elincia: Geoffrey... I'm sorry.
    Geoffrey: I don't understand. What's wrong?
    Elincia: Three years ago... you fought to free Crimea from the clutches of 
    Daein. While you held this lance, your courage was dauntless and your 
    prowess, legendary.
    Geoffrey: Yes. It's a brave lance, and I'm very proud of it.
    Elincia: I... I can't have you raise the same lance against your fellow 
    people of Crimea. I'm sorry... I just can't.
    Geoffrey: Your Majesty is worried about the shadow it would cast over my 
    name? The dishonor of using that weapon on Crimeans?
    Elincia: I would never want to damage your pride as a knight. It would be too 
    much to bear.
    Geoffrey: Believe no such thing, Your Majesty. My pride as a knight is most 
    deeply rooted in my service to you. That will never waver, no matter what. 
    Elincia... You know that.
    Elincia: Then take your lance. Use it to fight for Crimea once again.

    edge of the world at your calling.
    Geoffrey: Kieran, I'm lucky to have such a devoted follower. This is no 
    reward, but there's something I want you to have.
    Kieran: A silver axe!? Th-this is... It's so sharp! Do you mean I can have it!?
    Geoffrey: Do you like it?
    Kieran: Like it? My heart is ready to burst! I feel... It's like it's my 
    birthday, and I just got my first suit of armor!
    Geoffrey: Wonderful. I'm glad to hear it.
    Kieran: It will look fabulous on the mantel! My family will enjoy it for years 
    to come. I can't tell you how grateful I am.
    Geoffrey: Kieran, that's an axe, not a painting. Paintings are for mantels. 
    Axes are for fighting. I want you to use that axe.
    Kieran: What!? I couldn't!
    Geoffrey: You can't refuse. It's an order.

    Elincia: At this hour? Who could it be?
    Calill: Good evening, Queen Elincia.
    Elincia: Calill! What brings you here?
    Calill: Well, you see... Lady Lucia asked me to give you a hand if you ever 
    found yourself between a rock and a hard place, Your Majesty. She instructed 
    the workers here at Fort Alpea to notify me if they thought that you needed 
    any kind of help.
    Elincia: Lucia did?
    Calill: Lady Lucia has been taken, Your Majesty. But I think she'll be fine. 
    Actually, I know she will. She had the brains to set this up in advance, so I 
    know she has a good head on her shoulders.
    Elincia: Yes, you're right. Thank you, Calill.

    They are very well trained.
    Elincia: Lucia handpicked each one of them.
    Haar: Lucia and that... That official with the curly blonde beard. What was 
    his name?
    Elincia: You mean Count Bastian?
    Haar: Yeah, that's the one. Bastian, count of Fayre. He's usually considered 
    the premier political mastermind of Crimea. But Lady Lucia's proving to be no 
    slouch herself.
    Elincia: Yes. I really don't deserve them.
    Haar: Come on... Don't sell yourself short.
    Elincia: What do you mean?
    Haar: Loyalty isn't just a personal trait. Most of it hinges on who's calling 
    the shots. What kind of commander you're under. My first commander was only 
    concerned with lining his own pockets. And next was the Mad King himself. Man, 
    I don't ever want to go back to regular military duty. If Shiharam hadn't 
    asked me, I wouldn't have stayed so long. But he showed me what a leader could 
    be: someone who makes following seem like the most natural thing in the world.
    Elincia: What about in Begnion's leaders and the apostle Sanaki?
    Haar: The falcoknights report to the apostle, the dracoknights to the senate. 
    Of the two, the falcoknights seem happier. I've never actually met the apostle 
    personally. She sounds like a nice girl, but who knows?
    Elincia: I see.
    Haar: But I'm just running at the mouth. I actually came to give you this.
    Elincia: A physic staff?
    Haar: I want you to fight for all your loyal supporters. Losing your leader is

    Ike: Ranulf, you know you can talk to me.
    Ranulf: Sigh. It's just... I feel bad about this whole thing, you know?
    Ike: I'm not sure I understand what you mean.
    Ranulf: I've pulled you beorc into laguz affairs. It's not exactly your 
    problem, you know?
    Ike: Listen. You offered me a job, and I decided to take the contract. It's as 
    simple as that. I told the others they could leave if they didn't want to work 
    with laguz, but everybody decided they'd rather stay. Don't worry about it, 
    Ranulf: What about the Black Knight? Are you going to abandon your search?
    Ike: Yeah, at least for now. I figure that if he's still alive, our paths 
    will cross again. There's no rush.
    Ranulf: Hmm... Yeah, I guess you're right. No point in dwelling on things I 
    can't change, right? Thanks, Ike.
    Ike: Hey, no problem. Anything to keep you from moping around like a sullen 
    Ranulf: Fair enough. Besides, I've had this nagging headache ever since I left 
    Gallia with that hotheaded lion...
    Ike: Do you mean General Skrimir?
    Ranulf: That's the one. Skrimir is King Caineghis's nephew, and is on track to 
    become the next king of Gallia.
    Ike: He's the successor to Caineghis? He must be an absolute terror in battle.
    Ranulf: Absolutely. He's so powerful, I think he's gonna get himself in 
    trouble. And... He's the reason for my headache.
    Ike: You need a sympathetic ear about that, too?
    Ranulf: Thanks, Ike. But I'll tell you about it some other time. Let's eat 
    and catch some shut-eye before we set off for battle tonight.
    Ike: All right.
    Ranulf: See you at dinner.
    Ike: Hey, Ranulf!
    Ranulf: Yeah?
    Ike: You can come talk to me anytime you want. Don't think you're alone in

    Ike: Come on, Mist. I--
    Mist: Ike! I'm not going to repeat the same mistake I made with Dad! I don't 
    want you to die while I... while I'm somewhere else. It was horrible... It 
    ate me up from the inside. I'm never going through something like that ever 
    Ike: Mist...
    Mist: Everyone in the Greil Mercenaries is part of a family. We all follow the 
    commander, no matter what. We'll live together, fight together, and die 
    together. Right, Ike?
    Ike: ...All right. But promise me this. When we're out on the battlefield, 
    stay where I can see you. It'll put my mind at ease.

    Ike: Well... I don't think I'm a pushover. I'll say that much.
    Skrimir: Don't be humble! My uncle... Er, my king also told me about you. 
    "Observe Ike and learn his skills. Then you shall become even stronger."
    Ike: King Caineghis said that?
    Skrimir: He did. I am eager to watch you in battle. You can learn from me, as 
    Ike: I intend to.
    Skrimir: Lions are the strongest of the beast tribe, and I have been trained 
    to fight by the king himself. I was going to fight in the Mad King's War, but 
    my uncle forbade it. He said I still had much to learn. But now my time has

    learn that a beorc made all this delicious food!
    Oscar: Aww, stop it. You're embarrassing me!
    Titania: But it's true! Where did you learn all this, Oscar? You should start 
    teaching classes.
    Mordecai: Yes, your food very good! So good, it will be eaten very quickly.
    Oscar: Really? Hmm. Do you think I should make more?
    Lethe: Us beasts have a healthy appetite, of course. On top of that, we have 
    General Skrimir and Ike. ...Yeah. I'd be surprised if what's here lasted past 
    those two, much less a whole pack of laguz.
    Titania: Tsk, you're exaggerating! Ike is a beorc. He couldn't possibly eat as 
    much as someone from the beast tribe. Well, maybe he would. Actually... He 
    most definitely would.
    Oscar: Yeah. Especially the ribs and steaks.
    Lethe: Mordecai. How about we go hunt for more game?
    Mordecai: Right!

    Mist: Stars above, don't you two ever stop fighting? You're siblings. Be nice 
    to each other. So, what is it this time?
    Rolf: You be the judge, Mist. What's the most important quality a soldier can 
    have in battle?
    Boyd: It's power, but little Rolfie here insists that it's skill.
    Rolf: If you don't have skill, you can't hit your enemies!
    Boyd: If you're weak, you can't hurt 'em, even if you do hit 'em!
    Mist: Oh, you two are ridiculous.
    Rolf: Ridiculous?
    Boyd: Yeah, whaddya mean by that?!
    Mist: Skill and power are both important. Only a bad soldier would focus on 
    one over the other.
    Rolf: That's true, but...
    Boyd: You could at least play along a little.
    Mist: Play along? I'm sick and tired of having to listen to your silly 
    arguments! Anyhow, I'm here to give you something. Here you go, Boyd.
    Boyd: Hey, thanks!
    Rolf: What's that? A shirt?
    Mist: Yep. Boyd's just like Ike. He keeps growing like a beanstalk! If we 
    didn't constantly make his clothes bigger, he'd run out of things to wear.
    Boyd: I'm too broke to buy new ones. Thanks for fixing it up, Mist. I 
    really appreciate it.
    Mist: Well, I can't sew very well, but it gets the job done.
    Boyd: That it does!

    can alter your clothes, too. If you want, I mean.
    Rolf: No thanks. I can do it myself.

    short stuff?

    Please, forgive her. Now you, Lyre. Apologize to him.

    your temper and started a fight with a beorc?

    Ike: You all right with that, Rhys? I know you don't like watching allies cut 
    each other up in training.
    Rhys: That's true, but... I think it's better that I know how the injury 
    happened, rather than having someone just show up and bleed on the floor. It 
    will reduce the shock of seeing all that blood, you know? That's something I

    Ranulf: Yeah, I think so. He still doesn't say much, but he's a lot more at 
    ease these days. He used to be completely closed off, rejecting anyone who 
    tried to get close. Like he'd lock himself away, all alone in his own little 
    Ike: We all lost and gained something during the Mad King's War. Maybe it 
    wasn't a complete waste, after all.

    long I've been waiting for this?
    Shinon: Hey, I'm a busy guy. But I'm glad to hear it, I guess.
    Aimee: Don't be so cold! You could do this for me anytime, if you want. You 
    know I'll pay good money.
    Shinon: No thanks. It's more trouble than it's worth.
    Aimee: I'll make it worth your time. How about it, baby? You could leave your 
    mercenary lifestyle behind, and...
    Ike: Uh... What the heck are you talking about?
    Aimee: Ike! My hero! Are you here to see me?
    Shinon: Hmph. I'm outta here.
    Aimee: Hey, wait! What about what I owe you?
    Shinon: Give it to him! And don't tell him anything that he doesn't need to 
    Aimee: ...And now he's gone. What a selfish man.
    Ike: Care to tell me what's going on?
    Aimee: Ike, no! Are you feeling jealous? Don't you worry, darling. There's 
    only room for you in my heart. Really!
    Ike: You're scaring me, Aimee.
    Aimee: Oh, come on. It's just a joke! Business only, I promise. First, this is 
    for you.
    Ike: A blue gem?
    Aimee: You heard what the man said. I'm supposed to pay you instead.
    Ike: You're paying us? I'm very confused. I'd assumed that Shinon owed you 
    money, or something.
    Aimee: No, no. Nothing like that. This is what I owe him for-- Oops, he told 
    me not to say.
    Ike: Aimee? I'm getting scared again.
    Aimee: All right, fine. It's a payment for a bow.
    Ike: A bow?
    Aimee: I paid a lot for a bow he made me. I'm going to offer it as a 
    one-of-a-kind item at the shop.
    Ike: Right... Is that why Rolf is making bows now? He mentioned something 
    about bows being good income in emergencies.
    Aimee: Probably. Rolf is learning from a good teacher, but he's still no match 
    for the master himself.
    Ike: Rolf is Shinon's student?
    Aimee: Oh, dang. You think that was a secret, too?
    Ike: How should I know? Shinon wouldn't tell me that he smelled smoke if I was 
    on fire.
    Aimee: Well... I don't think Shinon likes people. Especially you, for some 
    reason. I wonder why he came back to you after he left the Greil Mercenaries 
    during the war?
    Ike: Shinon likes our little group. I know that much. This is probably his way 
    of trying to help us be less broke.
    Aimee: You think so? Why wouldn't he just come out and say so? He's so strange 
    like that.
    Ike: I'll keep this conversation a secret. I don't want to risk losing Shinon 
    by putting him on the defensive about all this.

    Haar: I like it fine. As long as I can catch some sleep, I don't care where I 
    am. What can I do for you?
    Ike: Ever since you joined us, I've been meaning to ask you about Jill. The 
    last I'd heard, you were running some kind of delivery service with her. How 
    did you end up passing through Crimea and then coming here?
    Haar: I stopped to chew some fat during a delivery. That's all.
    Ike: How's Jill these days?
    Haar: Last I heard, she got mixed up with the army again, fighting for Daein's 
    Ike: I see. Don't you think you ought to go back to Daein and give her some 
    Haar: She's a big girl now. She doesn't need me always lookin over her 
    shoulder. Jill can do whatever she wants.
    Ike: I don't understand. I thought you two were... You know. Living under the 
    same roof and all.
    Haar: She's the daughter of my dead teacher. Nothing more. Hey, if you don't 
    want me hanging around, feel free to just say so, all right?
    Ike: No, it isn't like that. You're great on the battlefield. I appreciate you 
    being here.
    Haar: Good. I like your mercenary group. They're laid back, and we have the 
    same goal: crushing the empire.
    Ike: That's true.
    Haar: Anyhow, is that all? I'm gonna nap until we deploy. Don't wake me up 
    until then.

    Ike: Hmm?
    Haar: See that bag on my wyvern? There's a souvenir in there for you. Feel 
    free to take it.

    Sothe: Let me see. Ah, that's a master crown. King Pelleas got one especially 
    for you.
    Micaiah: How do you use it?
    Sothe: He said that a beorc who honed their combat skills could use it to gain 
    further power.
    Micaiah: Someone who has refined their skills. I see. So, not everyone can 
    use it.
    Sothe: Sounds like it. It's a very precious item, so choose the recipient

    this war?
    Micaiah: King Pelleas has decided to come to the aid of Begnion.
    Jill: Has he deigned to share his reasoning with you? Micaiah, this war is 
    madness! Why would he ask us to aid Begnion!?
    Micaiah: ...I don't know.

    the blade Caladbolg.
    Edward: What? Whoa, this thing is amazing! I've never seen a blade so sharp! 
    Is it really for me? That means the king's counting on me, right? Well, 
    Caladbolg and I won't let him down!

    Micaiah: Oh, never mind. It's nothing. Forget I said anything.
    Edward: OK, sure. Um, Micaiah? Look, I don't know anything about kings, 
    or nobles, or anything else like that. But you're fighting because you 
    believe it's what's best for Daein, right? And, well, that's good enough 
    for me. I'm with you, no matter what.

    is Lughnasadh. It's been stored away in the vaults of Daein, waiting for 
    someone worthy enough. It's more powerful than the purest silver bow.
    Leonardo: It's beautiful... Honestly, this bow is beyond my skill. It was 
    crafted for better hands than mine. I guess... I guess we really have to win 
    now, don't we?
    Micaiah: Yes, I suppose we do.
    Leonardo: Don't look so sad, Micaiah. You're not responsible for this war. 
    We're doing the best we can hope to do. But I'm fighting for Daein. The

    wicked-looking axe. I'd heard stories about the fabled axe of Daein, but to 
    actually feel the heft... King Pelleas wants me to have it? I always did like 
    that man. I'll take good care of it, don't you worry.
    Micaiah: I know you will, Nolan. King Pelleas does too. That's why he's chosen 
    to give it to you.
    Nolan: Micaiah, look... I know how hard it is to be a commander, especially 
    with all of this confusion and doubt flying around. Fighting a war you don't 
    believe in is a bitter pill to swallow.
    Micaiah: Nolan, I--
    Nolan: Just remember something, will you? We're still the Dawn Brigade. Lots 
    of us aren't your "comrades," we're your family. If you need anything, we're

    You know that rewarding her behavior will only encourage her to act up in 
    front of others! Have I not always followed your orders without question, both 
    quickly and effectively?

    care which of you gets it.

    the injured.
    Skrimir: That's a good idea. Maybe I'll carry one or two on my back once we 
    enter the caves.

    permanent injury, all right?

    Daein invaded. It's only right that we pay back the favor by coming to their

    Gallia? The beast tribes helped us rebuild Crimea.

    side with? A land of beorc, or the land of sub... laguz? The answer's as plain 
    as day. We side with the beorc.

    Youth: I'd choose Gallia over Begnion.
    Lady: Really?
    Youth (2): But why?
    Youth: The people of Gallia helped us rebuild the village, even though we're 
    beorc. They even repaired the road to the farm that's up on the mountain. 
    That wasn't an easy job, either.
    Lady: Yes, I remember. What was his name... Mordecai? He was strong, yet 
    very kind. He looked frightening at first, but the children in the village 
    loved to play with him. He was a wonderful man.
    Man: If the queen decides to answer Begnion's request for troops, we'd 
    have to fight Gallia. How terrible would that be?

    abandon our own country.
    Tauroneo: Hmm. I wonder if it's the same if you leave Daein...
    Sothe: I don't understand.
    Tauroneo: If you abandoned Daein and fought on the side of a different 
    country, I wonder if you'd still be cursed?
    Sothe: Who knows? I'm not a sage. In any case, it doesn't matter. Micaiah 
    would never leave Daein behind.

    Sothe: Yeah, I believe so. She's alert, and she seems generally stronger.

    Daein. She's not just some "lady."
    Micaiah: Oh, it's all right. I'm still the same simple girl from Daein you 
    met before. Nothing's changed. So, are things well with you?
    Lady: Well, the fighting's got everyone worried, coming so soon after the last 
    war and all... But we're doing all we can for Daein! It doesn't matter who or 
    what we're up against. Believe me when I tell you we'll never give up.
    Nico: That's right! We won't give up. Ever! I know we're gonna win, too. 
    'Cause we've got you on our side. That's what everybody says. The Dawn Brigade 
    will save us.

    in us. I promise we'll keep you safe.

    like them in it.
    Sothe: I know how you feel, Micaiah. That's why we started all this. We've 
    always been fighting for them. But this war we're in... It's not just. We're 
    fighting on the wrong side.
    Micaiah: I know. I don't want to see anyone die. It's ironic... I'm killing 
    with no malice, because I don't want anyone to be killed. I... What am I 
    supposed to do? Am I supposed to stand back and let all of Daein perish? Is 
    that the "just" thing to do?
    Sothe: ...
    Micaiah: If that's what it takes to be just, then I want nothing to do with 
    justice. I'd rather be hated and feared like Mad King Ashnard. I'd rather the 
    dark god take my soul. I'm going to save my people, Sothe. If the rest of the

    Alliance, and now against the apostle's army. One after another, just like 
    Leonardo: The world can't always be like this. These wars seem so pointless. 
    All I want is to be able to live in Daein, peacefully and in freedom.
    Edward: Yeah. The military is a pretty strange place. Hey, I have an idea! 
    Once this battle is over, I'll quit the army and go home.
    Leonardo: What about Micaiah and the others? Are you going to abandon them?
    Edward: What? No way! I'll just have to talk them into leaving with me! And 
    if that catches on, all the soldiers will leave, and then there can't be a 
    war. And then Daein will have peace again!
    Leonardo: You know, I don't think it's that simple. But your plan sounds 
    good to me, Edward.
    Edward: See? You know it's smart. First, you and I will leave. Together, we 
    can tackle any obstacle!

    Here. Look what I got you.
    Edward: Oh! This sword is amazing! Where did you get this!?
    Leonardo: I've been saving up. Micaiah chipped in, too.

    be: quiet, elegant, and delicate. Those are words people use to describe 
    herons, and he fits all three.
    Ike: Yeah, well... None of those words fit Reyson.

    she was asleep for twenty years. Prince Reyson certainly doesn't seem to have 
    any of the characteristics herons are known for.
    Ike: King Tibarn did mention that "real" herons are more like Prince Rafiel.
    Nailah: Prince Reyson spent a long time in the care of the hawk tribe. No 
    doubt he's picked up all sorts of quirks. Thank goodness Reyson hasn't 
    picked up Tibarn's speech or mannerisms, though. It would be completely 
    ridiculous. Can you imagine a man with Reyson's looks, talking and acting like 
    Tibarn? I don't think I could help but laugh at him.

    Tibarn: A satori sign... Don't see these very often. It's a good find. But 
    blast it, Reyson, why didn't you wake me up?

    Tibarn: Hm. I didn't even notice you'd snuck out. I can't believe a heron 
    snuck by me...
    Reyson: Even heroes need their sleep to keep fighting, Tibarn. Where's the 
    harm in sleeping? I know that you haven't had a good night's rest since the 
    incident in Phoenicis.
    Tibarn: Yeah. But you know, there must be something in the air... Despite all 
    that's happened I feel fantastic. It's a perfect day for hunting treasure... 
    and enemies.

    Tellius language if I hadn't met Rafiel.
    Ike: The Tellius language?
    Nailah: You don't know? The language we are using right now is called the 
    Tellius language. You call it modern speech, I suppose.
    Ike: Oh, I see.
    Nailah: Long ago, beorc created the Old Tongue. The ancient speech is what we 
    laguz call it. The language was too difficult for the laguz to master. So the 
    language of Tellius was created in its place.
    Ike: Huh. I've never heard that before. The only people I'm aware of who know 
    the ancient speech are the heron laguz. I think Nasir of Goldoa said he could 
    read it. Among beorc, only mages know how to use it, and that's only for 
    Nailah: Well, the laguz who live a long time, such as dragons and herons, have 
    all the time in the world to learn it. Beorc probably left the ancient speech 
    behind in favor of a newer and improved language, with the exception of spells.
    Ike: That makes sense, I suppose. Mordecai once told me that speech lets you 
    avoid fighting when it's not a good idea. He said that's why it's a good idea 
    to know many languages.

    Geoffrey: I was outside on the day when the bright light engulfed everything. 
    At first, I thought that time had stopped. Then I realized that time was 
    normal, but everyone around me had been turned to stone. I rode around the 
    city to investigate, and I found this little girl crying in Calill's bar.

    possible for you to acquire the things I desired?

    esoteric and arcane, no task is too difficult. Your sword, your armor, and 
    your faithful steed stand ready, that the battlefield shall know your valor 
    once more.

    kept safe behind the vanguard, Elincia. I am a knight of Crimea, and I will 
    be one until I die. As long as I live, as long as I am able to walk, and as 
    long as I draw breath, I shall fight. It is my duty.

    you won't ever leave me alone.

    my pride as a knight and upon my love for my country. Now, Your Majesty, 
    please grant me the honor of protecting you in battle.

    are, enjoying a little scene of high drama from glory-filled past. I'm glad

    Stefan: ...What can I do for you, Goddess Yune?
    Yune: You're very strange. What are you?
    Stefan: That's a strange question, especially coming from you. Didn't you 
    create all of us?
    Yune: I didn't create anything. Not laguz nor beorc. But I know what they are, 
    because I've watched them change and grow over time. You... You're not 
    something I've seen before.
    Stefan: I'm the same as the girl you dwell inside.
    Yune: Ohhh... I thought Micaiah was the only one. She could hear my voice and 
    sing the galdr of release. But I learned that others existed. There's that boy 
    who's always with Ike. Or that little girl who stays by the queen of Crimea.
    Stefan: There are several in my village, as well. They are my comrades. We all 
    live under the same fate... and carry the same curse in our blood.
    Yune: When you say these words, what do they mean? Why are you cursed?
    Stefan: It means that we carry the blood of both beorc and laguz. Beorc call 
    us Branded, and laguz call us parentless.
    Yune: Does that mean your parents are beorc and laguz?
    Stefan: Not always. It means that laguz and beorc mixed blood somewhere along 
    the line. Beorc and laguz rarely associate in that way. For them to conceive 
    a child together is an even rarer event. What's strange is that the child 
    bears no laguz characteristics. It's just a normal beorc infant. However, the 
    laguz blood lies asleep, waiting, in the child's veins.
    Yune: Oh...
    Stefan: One day, the laguz blood shows itself, marking the child's body with 
    a brand. How old is that girl, hmm? I don't think she's as young as she looks. 
    The other curse is that we age differently from beorc. It depends on what 
    laguz blood the child has, but it always slows how fast we age.
    Yune: Micaiah says that's true. She's listening to every word you say. Please, 
    Stefan: The laguz blood gives the Branded unnatural powers. Beorc fear and 
    distrust us because they can't understand those abilities. The laguz are even 
    worse. They treat us like we're phantoms, refusing to acknowledge us, as if 
    we don't even exist.
    Yune: I see...
    Stefan: It's easy to hide among beorcs. You just cover the brand, avoid 
    getting close to anyone, and never settle down. Pretending you're normal. The 
    laguz are different. They can sense what we are... They have an instinct for 
    it. Not all laguz know for sure, but the sharp ones figure it out instantly. 
    Others just feel uneasy around us. Some never figure it out, but they're 
    surrounded by oens who do. Either way, the laguz would never talk to us 
    voluntarily. Why would you pay attention to someone who doesn't even exist?
    Yune: Why? That doesn't make any sense. How did things get like that?
    Stefan: I would like to know that as well. It's said that a union between the 
    laguz and beorc is a crime against the goddess. That's what we've always been 
    Yune: That's silly. I've never heard anything of the sort.
    Stefan: ...Heh... Heheh... Hahahahaha...!
    Yune: Why are you laughing?
    Stefan: It's all been a lie! For hundreds of years, we've faced persecution, 
    abuse, and isolation. And for what? A lie! What's not to laugh about, huh? 
    Yune: What's happened? This is all wrong... How did history get so distorted?

    years, I believe.
    Almedha: Nasir... You returned to Goldoa?

    Kurthnaga: Nasir, I need to know something. Why has Goldoa sided with Goddess 
    Ashera!? What is Father thinking? The laguz and beorc have joined together to 
    save the petrified. Why hasn't Goldoa joined the effort?
    Nasir: As you wish. Lady Almedha... Are you aware of the fact that everything 
    that's happening is due to your decision to leave Goldoa?
    Almedha: ...What?
    Kurthnaga: Explain, Nasir.
    Nasir: King Dheginsea forbade the dragon tribe to use our transformation for 
    the purpose of war. Almedha, you left because you did not agree with this 
    policy, did you not?
    Almedha: That's right.
    Nasir: Shortly after you left Goldoa, you met Ashnard in Daein and were united 
    with him. However, your union begat a chain of tragedies. Did you know that 
    the red dragon platoon which went in search of you was captured and turned 
    into Feral Ones by King Ashnard?
    Almedha: I-I had no idea.
    Nasir: Ashnard needed Goldoa to get involved in his war. That's why he did 
    everything in his power to provoke King Dheginsea. Most of you have never 
    fought in a war, but even more than other laguz, the dragon tribe loses 
    control once they taste battle.
    Kurthnaga: Oh...
    Nasir: Near the end of the war, we found out that Prince Rajaion could not be 
    saved. I thought the king would surely go on a rampage. At the time, we had 
    no idea that Lady Almedha was still alive. The king thought he'd lost not 
    only his dragon soldiers but also his children.
    Ena: ...
    Nasir: If the war had ended any later... Had Ike not killed Ashnard... Goldoa 
    would have joined the war. And we would have started killing. We would have 
    destroyed the Daein army, its coconspirators, everyone. We would not have 
    stopped until the continent was ashes. Then the spirit of chaos would have 
    spread across Tellius, awakening the goddess and destroying the dragon 
    tribe. That was the danger we faced in the Mad King's War.
    Kurthnaga: ...
    Ena: But Ashnard was defeated. And Rajaion regained his sanity thanks to the 
    songs of the heron clan.
    Almedha: Sniff... Bwuah... Sniff...
    Nasir: We escaped annihilation once. We took Prince Rajaion's body back to 
    Goldoa. And the king did not shed a tear, nor fly into a rage. He endured 
    his loss by himself. He endured for the sake of his last child, and for the 
    sake of his people. Goldoa remained neutral.
    Kurthnaga: Father...
    Nasir: But now... All that effort has been wasted. The war between the Laguz 
    Alliance and Begnion has spread through Daein and Crimea. And to top it all 
    off, Goldoa can no longer stay neutral because of what Prince Kurthnaga has 
    Kurthnaga: You're saying this is my fault...!? That I've started a war that 
    my father tried to avoid?
    Almedha: No, Kurthnaga! This was my fault. You fought because of me.
    Ena: This was not Prince Kurth's fault! Besides, the goddess Yune was not 
    awakened by chaos sweeping across Tellius. She was awakened by the galdr of 
    Nasir: By a galdr!? Are you certain?
    Ena: Yes. That was what Sir Ike said.
    Nasir: That's... very strange. Nevertheless, the end result remains the same. 
    Goddess Ashera has rendered her judgment. The laguz and beorc must follow her 
    Ena: What...!? Nasir!
    Nasir: I've come here as a favor to the king. Prince Kurthnaga, you have to 
    return to us. At once.
    Kurthnaga: If we just accept Ashera's judgment, we'll all be turned to stone! 
    That's the end of history as we know it! Do you expect me to just lie down 
    and accept that? How can I? What you're asking is insanity! I won't do it.
    Nasir: And you, Ena?
    Ena: I feel the same as Prince Kurth.
    Nasir: Then I have nothing more to say to you. However, I hope to avoid 
    fighting my own people if at all possible.
    Ena: Nasir...
    Almedha: ...What will you do on the battlefield, Kurth? Will you face your 
    father as an enemy?
    Kurthnaga: ...I will do whatever I have to.

    Requirements: None
    Receive: Urvan (Axe)
    Caineghis: Ike. I have something to give you.
    Ike: Hey, this is...
    Caineghis: It's called Urvan, if I remember correctly. I borrowed it from 
    your father's grave.
    Ike: Why?
    Caineghis: Honestly? I have no idea. But I felt a sudden urge to visit Greil's 
    grave on the morning of our journey. When I told Giffca my idea for a little 
    side trip, he said he thought the same thing.
    Giffca: I believe we were guided to your father's grave by a divine message 
    from the goddess.
    Caineghis: When I saw your father's axe, I was convinced that I had to take it 
    to you. I felt that's what your father would have wanted.
    Ike: ...Maybe he and my mother are looking over us from somewhere else. All 
    right. It's my father's, so it's only right that I take it.

    Volke: Over here.
    Ike: Looking for you is still like trying to find spilled ink at night.
    Volke: It's part of the job. Anyways... You've grown quite a bit since the 
    last time I saw you.
    Ike: Everyone loves telling me that.
    Volke: You're starting to look like Greil.
    Ike: That might be true, too. He IS my dad. I didn't expect to see you here. 
    Did someone from this camp hire you?
    Volke: Sure did.
    Ike: I see. It's good to have you on our side under any circumstances. Why 
    did you call me over?
    Volke: I have to return something to you.
    Ike: What the...!? What's all this money for?
    Volke: It's the 50,000 gold you paid me the last time around. Well, minus my 
    pay, expenses, and that sort of thing, of course.
    Ike: Even so, there's a lot here.
    Volke: Well, the contract ended sooner than expected, I guess.
    Ike: You did a lot for us back then. I didn't even get a chance to thank you.
    Volke: It was a job. There's no need to thank me.
    Ike: I know. But if you hadn't told me the story of my father, I would never 
    have known about his past. So thanks, Volke.
    Volke: Uh, yeah, so, anyhow... You have your money back. See you later.
    Ike: Did he really just get embarrassed because I thanked him? What a weird

    Sothe: Are you all right, Micaiah?

    Sothe: I'm not a child, Micaiah! When are you going to start treating me like 
    an adult?
    Micaiah: Show me your hand.
    Sothe: What?
    Micaiah: Look at your hands. They're so big... They were so small when we met.
    Sothe: Micaiah...
    Ike: Ahh... Sorry. Am I interrupting something?
    Sothe: C-Commander!
    Micaiah: It's all right, Ike. How can we help you?
    Ike: I was scrounging around in my stuff and found some extra medicine. I 
    figured I'd ask around and see if anyone needed it.
    Sothe: ...I need to go get ready.
    Ike: Hey, there's no rush. We still have... He didn't catch a word of that, 
    did he?
    Micaiah: I'm sorry about that.
    Ike: How long have you been with him?
    Micaiah: ...A long time. I met him when I was hiding out in the back alleys 
    of Nevassa, over ten years ago. He was so skinny, but his gaze was so 
    piercing... I wondered how such a young boy could look like that. One day, 
    I noticed he was standing close to me, just watching. He continued like that 
    for a few days. One day, I held out my hand. He was suspicious of me, but 
    came over anyway. He looked like a scared animal. Then his little hand 
    slipped into mine. It was shaking. His fingers were so thin and frail. I 
    couldn't let go after that. After that, we traveled together all over the 
    continent. No matter where we went, we were always together.
    Ike: The first time I met him, he'd hidden on a ship we were taking. He 
    mentioned he was looking for someone who was like family to him. It was you 
    he was searching for, wasn't it?
    Micaiah: I... I tried to leave him behind. When we went to Crimea, I split 
    off from him and took a ship to Begnion. But when I reached Begnion, war had 
    broken out between Crimea and Daein. I knew I had to return to Daein to look 
    for him. I couldn't find him, so I went to Crimea. But I still couldn't 
    find him... We found each other again after the war, in Daein. In the back 
    alleys of Nevassa, where we first met.
    Ike: You took routes opposite of each other.
    Micaiah: When I told him why I'd disappeared, he got so angry... I'd never 
    seen him get so emotional before.
    Ike: I can't say that I blame him. I'd be pretty furious if I heard someone 
    that I loved was wandering around two countries at war. Besides, I'm sure 
    he'd hidden his feelings about being abandoned until he saw you again.
    Micaiah: I thought I was reaching the limit of how long I could stay with 
    him. He grew each and every day, but I remained the same... I didn't want 
    him to be harmed by the curse I lived with. Can you imagine how hard that 
    would have been on him?
    Ike: You mean the blood of the laguz?
    Micaiah: So you knew. Did you find out from the boy who's always beside you?
    Ike: Soren. Yeah. I guess you both know how to recognize people with a 
    similar nature.
    Micaiah: Yes. He and I are both Branded.
    Ike: ...Don't use that word. You and Soren are both people. Just like me and 
    everyone else.
    Micaiah: People. You're just like Yune. You call both laguz and beorcs 
    Ike: Why should I care about the color of your hair, eyes, and skin? Or 
    your ears, wings, or tail? No matter how long you live or what powers you 
    possess, we're the same. At the end of the day, we're all people.
    Micaiah: ...Sothe talks that way, too. His time with you changed him. Thank 
    you, Ike. I've made up my mind.
    Ike: About what? I didn't realize we were doing anything but talking.
    Micaiah: I thought I might travel to a far-off place after all of this was 
    over. But I won't. I'll go back to Daein. No matter what happens, I'll have 
    Sothe by my side. I have nothing to fear as long as he's with me.
    Ike: It seems the feelings between you two run both ways. But that's 
    probably the wisest choice for Daein, and for Sothe. Anyway...
    Micaiah: Oh, um... May I have some medicine?
    Ike: Oh! Yeah, I almost forgot. Survive, Micaiah. We need you, and the 
    goddess you host, to save the people of Tellius.
    Micaiah: Yes. I know.

    Requirements: None
    Receive: Pavise (Skill)
    Sanaki: Zelgius is the Black Knight? I don't know what to say... It's 
    Ike: What was he like in Begnion?
    Sanaki: He was the right-hand man of my most trusted aid, Duke Sephiran of 
    Persis. He was a hero, a perfect general, and the best swordsman in all of 
    Tellius. He was never anything but loyal. But he was serving another country!
    Ike: Hmm. It makes me wonder how Sephiran is doing.
    Sanaki: I doubt he's been turned to stone. Even though he was captured by 
    Lekain and forcibly removed from his post, he'll have found a way to 
    persevere. Sigrun always said there's no other master of the arcane arts who 
    can compare with the duke of Persis.
    Ike: Makes you wonder, doesn't it?
    Sanaki: Ike... Don't tell me you suspect Sephiran!
    Ike: Well, look at the facts...
    Sanaki: Do not trouble your mind with that thought! He would never betray me.
    Ike: It's nice to think so. But if he's not petrified, he'd have received a 
    message from Yune. So where is he?
    Sanaki: The goddess isn't perfect. She said so herself! Maybe the message 
    didn't reach everyone.
    Ike: ...You have to admit that's a weak excuse. Let's leave it at that, for 
    now. We need to focus on moving forward.
    Sanaki: Please, let's! Oh, I almost forgot! I have something for you.
    Ike: What is it?
    Sanaki: Um... Uh... Well, you're my trusted aide, just like Sephiran. You 
    have to live! So protect yourself with this.
    Ike: A mercenary with a contract to act as aide to the empress of Begnion. 
    Who'd have thought? But thank you, Sanaki.
    Sanaki: You're welcome, Ike. And thank you.
