Farina
My scouting mission was a success,
and I'm back to report in!
Before I get to the details, though,
I should tell you there's a huge
number of foes incoming.
A much greater number than our
initial reports indicated!

Alfonse
Good work, Farina. Erk, would you
mind pulling out your map so we
can come up with a plan?

Erk
Yes. Our current position is...right
around here, just west of the valley
where we set up camp.

Pent
And where were the bandits, Farina?
I imagine they were taking the route
along the river, yes?

Farina
That's right. They were in this area
here, over here...ah, and in this forest
as well!
Like I said, there are a lot of them.
Probably three times as many as
we expected.

Louise
If that's the case, our chances of
being surrounded are significant.

Pent
...I have an idea, if you don't mind,
Prince Alfonse.
Together, the power of Erk's and my
magic should be sufficient if we can
lead our foes into the proper position.

Erk
...

Pent
We will need to draw the enemy
to the ideal place using a decoy.
Then we can approach from their
rear and quickly dispatch them with
a single concentrated assault.
Louise, will you play the role
of decoy?

Louise
Of course. It would be my pleasure.

Farina
Hang on. Wouldn't I be better suited
to be the decoy?

Pent
With you on the wing, the bandits
would be hard-pressed to give
chase, Farina.
If they aren't convinced they'll be
able to reach you, they won't chase
you in earnest.

Alfonse
All right. Then let's move forward
with your plan, Lord Pent. Louise,
do be careful out there. Stay safe.

Louise
I will. You have nothing to worry
about. I will treat the situation
with utmost care.

Farina

ただいま戻りました。
偵察は無事に完了…!
でも、報告よりも賊の数が多いみたい。
もうっ、全然話が違うじゃない!

見せてもらえるかな。

エルク
現在地は…
さきほど野営した盆地から

私に、ひとつ考えがあります。
私とエルクは、魔力を十分に残しています。
最も効果的な局面で、
これを用いましょう。

エルク
……。

パント
まず、こちらから囮を出して敵を誘導。
我々は敵の背後に回り込み
初撃にて致命的な一打を与えます。
ルイーズ、囮の役目を頼めるかい?

ルイーズ
はい、喜んでお引き受けいたします。

ファリナ
え?
囮役なら私のほうが
向いてるんじゃ?

パント
天馬で空を翔けるファリナでは
地上の賊たちは追いつけないよ。
自分たちの武器が届く相手でないと
敵は必死に追ってこないからね。

アルフォンス
では、その作戦でいこう。
ルイーズ、くれぐれも気をつけて。
無理はしないようにね。

ルイーズ
はい、お任せください。
必ずご期待に応えてみせますわ。

Erk
In order for Lord Pent’s plan to be
successful, we will need to strike
quickly and decisively.
Otherwise, both Lady Louise and
Prince Alfonse will be in grave
danger. The plan must succeed.

Farina
Your enthusiasm for this plan
is impressive, I must say.
We’ll be counting on you and Lord
Pent to carry out your parts.

Erk
Indeed. We will both give it our
full effort.

Farina
Right… There’s something else I’ve
been wondering. Sending your wife
out as a decoy seems…unusual.
Isn’t Lord Pent worried about
Lady Louise?

Erk
Of course he is!
The reason Lord Pent gave her such
an important role in the plan is due
to his unwavering trust in her.

Farina
Hmm… I see.
Even though she is his wife, they
look at the situation unclouded,
as if they were simply comrades.
I had wondered to myself how much
they really loved each other given all
that. But I see now I misunderstood.

Erk
To tell you the truth, I should have
been the one to play the role of
decoy instead of Lady Louise.
Lord Pent, however, is aware of my
inexperience in situations like this,
and must know that I am lacking…
That is likely the reason he chose not
to entrust me with the decoy role.

Farina
Hmm… Well, the plan is in motion
now, so there’s no time to concern
yourself with that.
Just focus on getting the job done!

Alfonse
Ready, everyone? Louise has led
the enemy right to us. Time for us
to turn the tables on them!

Farina
We’ve got his in the bag! They have
no idea what they’re up against!

Erk
Umm… Lord Pent?

Pent
Yes, Erk? We ought to be quick and
get to our positions.

Erk
I should have been the decoy, and
yet you were forced to ask Lady
Louise to put herself in danger…
I am sorry it came to that, and wanted
to let you know I’ll work hard so it
can be me in that role next time.

Pent
Erk, do you think I passed you
over for the role because I find
you lacking in some way?

Erk
Would I be wrong to think such
a thing? After all, when it comes
to combat, I’m, well…
I supposed that my abilities were not
to the level where you felt you could
rely on me.

Pent
Erk, you misunderstand.
I asked Louise to be the decoy due
to the fact that she is excellent with
the bow and has a keen eye.
Those skills made Louise our best
hope for success.

Erk
I see… So, that’s all there is to it…

Pent
Furthermore, Erk, like Louise, you
also have an important role to carry
out here, with me.
In order for the plan to succeed,
you and I must use our magic in
concert and attack as one.
Without your aid, this strategy would
be very difficult for me to execute.
You can trust that I would not have
suggested this course of action if
I did not have faith in your ability.

Erk
Lord Pent, I…I don’t know what
to say!

Pent
Never mind that. Louise will be here
soon. Let us not miss our chance to
end this battle before it can begin.

Erk
Or course! I won’t disappoint you!

Farina
No trace of the enemy left! Looks like
the bandits have been defeated and
have fallen back… A victory!

Pent
A resounding success indeed! Louise,
you were exceptional, even in the
face of danger. I’m so proud of you.

Louise
Our success was all thanks to Erk
and your attack–and Prince Alfonse
and Farina’s follow-through.
The plan succeeded because
everyone performed their roles
so wonderfully.

Farina
I wanted to ask you, Lord Pent,
Lady Louise…
Is the trust between you simply
a fact born of your marriage?
It seems so strong…

Pent
Of course, as a husband, I place the
utmost trust in my wife.
That is not all there is to it, however.
Even without consideration of our
marriage, I trust Louise completely.

Louise
Oh, Lord Pent, you are too kind…

Pent
It likely goes without saying, but
I have faith in Prince Alfonse and
you as well.
Regardless of your status as a Hero,
a prince, or a mercenary… I trust each
of you as individuals. As people.
Alfonse
Titles and position aside, you trust
in our character and our abilities…
Is that what you mean to say?

Pent
I choose to trust my wife. I choose
to trust my student.
I am attached to them, and I would
put my life on the line for them.
I must trust them to do the same.
But even beyond those connections,
I hope for us have faith in each
other as fellow people.
I believe trust is the aggregate of the
bonds we share with one another,
regardless of how those are formed.
Everyone here has performed to
my expectations brilliantly, and our
bonds have grown stronger for it.

Erk
Lord Pent! You honor me with
such praise!
I vow to train even more. I want
to grow, not only as your student
but as your fellow and comrade!
And I will work hard to prove I’m
worthy of the trust you and Lady
Louise have placed in me.

Something the matter, Erk?
You’re staring…

Erk
Hm? Oh, sorry. It’s just that…
Well, talking to those two gave
me a bit of a shock.
They’re the children of Lord Pent
and Lady Louise!
It was certainly a surprise to meet
their children fully grown–and so
mature as well…
Peony
Yes. Meeting people from your future
like that certainly gives Askr a sort
of dreamlike quality.
And who knows, you might even
meet yourself from the future at
some point. Hee hee!

Guinivere
Pardon me, but…might you be
Lord Erk?

Erk
M-me? …LORD Erk?! I’m not a lord!
Have we met?

Guinivere
Ah, my apologies. I am Guinivere,
princess of Bern. You are rather
famous–even in my country.
You were called by the people
to succeed Lord Pent as Mage
General, yet you refused…
It is a great pleasure to meet the
Lord Erk who was able to achieve
so much with the study of magic…

You’re saying the people ask me

Guinivere
Well, as I understand it, you were
the person best suited for the role,
Lord Erk.

Erk
But the Mage General is the pillar
that supports all the mages of Etruria!
…Lord Pent was Mage General!
A-and I turned down such an honor?
Wh-why? How could I?

Guinivere
I’m sorry, but I cannot answer that
for you. Only you can understand
the choices you’ll make.

Erk
Peony
Wow! Isn’t that wonderful, Erk!
You must grow to be such an

…Are you all right in there, Erk?

Serra
Don’t bother! He’s been shut up
in that room forever, and there’s
no sign of him coming out!
I told him he was going to turn
into a cave creature if he stayed
in there much longer. …Nothing!
Ugh! We finally have a chance to
meet again here in Askr, and this is
what he does?! What is he thinking!

Priscilla
Erk, I understand if you’re worried,
but I do hope you aren’t pushing
yourself too hard.

Erk

Serra might be annoying, but…she
may have a point. Maybe I should
leave my room a bit more often.
But I can’t leave things as they are
now if I really am to become worthy
of the title Mage General…
I must keep my primary focus
on my studies.
Peony
Oh, Erk! Out for a walk?

Erk
Ah, hello, Peony.
Peony
Erk! The bags under your eyes are
huge! Have you not been sleeping?

Erk
I suppose I haven’t. it’s just that
I have so much to learn. I can’t
waste my time sleeping…
Peony
Oh no! Sleep is too important
to ignore!
Peony
You can’t ONLY study! You have
to sleep well and eat properly to
nourish both your body and mind!
Are you still caught up thinking about
that conversation from the other day?

Erk

I am Lord Pent’s student… What if
his hope for me is that I grow to
become his successor?
It’s an intimidating proposition…
I fall short in a myriad of ways as
I am now. That cannot stand!
That is why I must keep studying.
Peony
I see. So that’s why you’ve been
working yourself so hard.
But, as long as you’re here in Askr,
I think it’d be fine for you to just be
yourself, as you are, don’t you?

Be…myself? What do you mean
by that exactly?

Peony
Well, the Guinivere you met might
be from a different world that the
one you come from, you know.
The Erk that stands before my may
have a completely different path laid
out before him.

Erk
You’re saying each world can have
a different version of a person such
that even their futures are different?
Peony
The summoner has said as much,
if I recall. Something about “more
futures than there are worlds.”
You could very well be on the path
to becoming a great magic user.
Even without such focused study!
Or you might find someone you
want to marry, and settle down
and live happily ever after…
The point is, your future isn’t set
in stone! Anything can happen!

Erk
I think I now see what you mean…
My future is not yet decided,
so I should not live my life as
if it has been…
Thank you, Peony, for helping me
understand what is possible in this
world…and the future.
I was so worked up, I may have
caused some grief for Serra and
Priscilla… I’ll be sure to apologize.
That aside, I see now what I must do.
I will continue to put forth efforts, but
I will do so at my own pace.
Peony
And you’ll be better for it! Remember
to sleep well and eat right too!
That’s how you turn dreams into
reality–and nothing makes us álfar
happier than that.
Stay steady on your path, and you’ll
reach your dreams, whatever they
may be. I believe in you!

  • Of the two unidentified characters, it seems most plausible that the former is Faye while the latter is Norne. In the Japanese version the latter stutters at the beginning of her speech, probably because of being so nervous in the presence of a noble lady, saying 「そ、そうね」(R-right!), which corresponds to Norne's way of talking in the next scene.

Louise
Lord Pent is the eldest son of House
Reglay of Etruria. His talents were
known far and wide from his youth.

I've known Lord Pent since I was
young, having heard tell of his strong
character. I respected him deeply.

Norne
Were you childhood friends?

Louise
As I said, I was young when we met,
but the occasion of our meeting was
somewhat unusual...

We were first introduced when Lord
Pent was to select his future bride
for betrothal.

Twenty noble girls of Etruria had
been gathered, and I was among
those twenty.

My family was not particularly
prestigious compared to many
of the others...

Tanya
Choosing between twenty people
sounds heard... How'd he end up
choosing you?

Louise
The rest of the candidates were all
beautiful women of Etrurian nobility,
each of them radiant in their way.

Each demonstrated their talents
before Lord Pent, singing, dancing,
playing music, reciting poetry...

Each of them demonstrated skills
common to young ladies of the land.

I, however, had no particular skill
in any such craft.

Norne
Really?! But then...why did he end
up choosing you, Miss Louise?

Louise
I held nothing back. I shared with
Lord Pent my true feelings and told
him how I had spent my young life.

I told him my skill was with the bow,
and that if he were to choose me,
I'd protect him to my life's end.

Faye
Wow! Such a direct approach!

Louise
When I finished, I went red, and
the sound of girlish laughter rang
in my ears.

The ladies, their attendants, everyone
was laughing at me.

Everyone, that is, except for Lord
Pent, who only smiled gently.

"I have never met a girl whose heart
was so clear," he said, and he took
my hand in his.

Even now, I remember it clearly...
The warmth of his hand. A feeling
like I had ascended into heaven...

Tanya
What a great story!

Louise
Lord Pent saw me for what I am.

So I think striving to be seen as you
really are is the surest path to having
your love be returned.

ルイーズ
パント様は、エトルリアの名門
リグレ公爵家の嫡男で、若い頃から
その才を広く知られていました。

私も幼い頃からパント様を存じており
その人柄や努力を怠らぬ勤勉さを伝え聞き
尊敬していたのです。

ノルン
幼馴染みではなかったんですか?

ルイーズ
はじめてパント様にお会いしたのは
私が14歳のとき…
パント様の婚約者を決める席でした。

そこには、エトルリア貴族の令嬢二十人が
集められており、私もその一人でした。

もっとも私の家は、そこまで名門では
なかったのですけど…。

タニア
でも、二十人もいたら選ぶの大変じゃない?
どうやって婚約者を決めたんですか?

ルイーズ
候補者はエトルリア貴族の美姫ばかり。
どの令嬢も輝くばかりの
美しさを誇っていました。

その場で美姫たちはそれぞれ
パント様の前で自分の特技を
披露することになったのです。

歌や踊り、楽器の演奏、詩の朗読…
みなが令嬢の嗜む特技を
次々と披露していきました。

でも、私は…そのどれもが
得意ではなかったのです。

ノルン
ええっ!? そ、それじゃあ
どうしてルイーズさんが
選ばれたんですか?

ルイーズ
私は…包み隠さず、自分の本心と
これまで積み重ねてきた生き方を
パント様にお伝えしたのです。

「私は弓が一番得意です」
「パント様をお守りしますので
どうか、お嫁さんにしてください」と。

エフィ
わあ、ストレート。

ルイーズ
私が顔を真っ赤にしながら
言い終わったとき
部屋中から笑い声が響きました。

令嬢も、その従者のみなさんも…
みんな私のことを笑っていました。

そんな中、たった一人笑うことなく
微笑んでくれている人がいたの。
それが、パント様だった。

「あなたのように
素直な女性ははじめてだ」
そう、私の手を握ってくださったの。

あのときの天に昇るような気持ちと
パント様の手の温かさ…
今でもしっかりと覚えています。

タニア
ぐすっ! あたしは感動したよ!
いい話じゃない…!

ルイーズ
パント様はありのままの私を
見てくれました。

ありのままの自分を見せられるように
努力すること…それが
恋を叶える近道かもしれませんね。

Louise
Oh my! So you're here too, Rebecca?
I am glad to see you're well.

Rebecca
And you're looking lovely, as always!
Have you already gotten used to life
in Askr?

Louise
I have! Ah, that reminds me... I told
Norne, Faye, and Tanya the story of
Lord Pent and my first meeting...

I believe I've told you before too,
haven't I?

Rebecca
Yes! I remember! It's a wonderful
story too.

...Oh! So that's what happened...
It all makes sense now!

Louise
...Hm? What makes sense?

Rebecca
Well, to tell you the truth, Norne,
Faye, and Tanya have all been
fiercely training their bow skills.

They've been shouting things like,
"In love AND in battle, it's skill with
a bow that counts!"

Louise
Oh goodness. That's not really what
I was hoping to get across to them...

Rebecca
Yes... I suppose not.

Louise
But they are all so honest and
full of positivity.

I'm sure they'll find love in their
lives—and I'm sure you will too,
of course, Rebecca.

Rebecca
If you say so, Louise, then I have
faith it will come true!

I'll be trying my best so I can follow
your example and share my life and
skills with a wonderful gentleman!

Louise
Hee hee... And I'll be cheering you on
all the way. You can count on that.

Fjorm
Here we are! This is the library!

Pent
Incredible! So many books!
It's vast—an incredible trove
of knowledge!

Canas
Lord Pent! Is that you? It's been
absolutely ages!

Pent
My word, Canas! I see you were
summoned to Askr too.

Canas
Indeed I was. I've been here for
some time.
Ah, I see that Princess Fjorm is with
you. Were the medicinal herbs I gave
you effective, Princess?
Fjorm
Yes, they were! I prepared them as
you instructed, and they helped me
get some sleep.
You've been quite a help. I can't
express my gratitude enough.

Canas
My help is freely given, Princess! Our
research continues, and I will be sure
to let you know when it bears fruit.
Now, Lord Pent, do you have a
moment? I've gathered a number
of tomes on the magic of a nature...
You might be interested in perusing
them.

Pent
My word! Can it be? This book fits
the description of a lost treatise...
Vanished from Etruria!
What an incredible collection. Good
work, Canas!

Canas
Well, I can't take all the credit... In
truth, there is another Lord Pent
summoned to Askr.

Pent
Princess Fjorm already told me this.
He and his Louise are garbed in
wedding attire...

Canas
Yes, for the festival. That's the only
place we've met.
We discussed these works, and he
bade me to show them to another
Lord Pent, were he summoned.

Pent
My double shows sense! Were we to
meet, I would thank him.
Princess Fjorm, I do hate to impose,
especially as I have only just arrived
in Askr, but...
I think—barring any emergency—I
shall have to seclude myself in this
library for the foreseeable future.
Would you be so good as to
inform Commander Anna for me?

Fjorm
Certainly. And I suppose I had better
inform Lady Louise as well.

Pent
Canas, have a look at this passage...
Does it not bear a striking similarity
to Niime's work?

Canas
It does, at that.

Pent
Just as I'd expect from the Mountain
Hermit... Her theories have proven to
transcend the very worlds!

Kliff
He's something else. No Hero has
been happier to shut up in this
library.

Lysithea
Of course! This is Lord Pent. Count
Reglay and Mage General of Etruria.
He is a formidable scholar. All of the
mages of Elibe know his name!
And from the looks of it...he just
might end up living in this library.

Kliff
As long as he doesn't get in the way
of my reading...

Erk
Lord Pent! Lady Louise wanted
you to have this.

Pent
Thank you, Erk. Please put it down...
Over there will do.

Erk
What a lot of books! Do you intend
to read them all?

Pent
Oh, those? I've already read them.
They merely await reshelving.

Erk
You've read them? ALL of them?
That would take me months! At
least...

Pent
Right now, I am but a student.
Yes, it has been too long since
I have so passionately devoted
myself to the spirit of inquiry.

Erk
It may be forward of me to say this,
Lord Pent, but do not neglect your
body as you nourish your mind.

Pent
I suppose you are right. And do
thank Louise for me.
But I can't stop now...there is a
puzzle here. Just what is this
place? What is Askr?

Fjorm
Good morning, Lord Pent. I see
that you are still devoted to your
reading.

Pent
Ah, Princess Fjorm. There are just
so many books that I hate to lose
time sleeping...
My mind is gripped by a quandary
that requires careful examination.

Fjorm
A quandary? Is something amiss?

Pent
This land, Askr... It is beset by crisis
after crisis.
Why do so many other realms
interfere with this land? This
land in particular, I mean.
Fjorm
Well, now that you mention it...

Pent
Let us consider something. What is it
that Askr has that other realms lack?
Gtes to other worlds are attested to
in realms such as Ylisse, Hoshido,
Nohr, and elsewhere.
There is one thing that Askr alone
possesses. One peculiarity that may
answer the question...
Do you know what it is? The
presence of a summoner.

Fjorm
That...that can't be! Are you saying
that these invasions stem from
[Summoner]'s presence?
Askr ows so much—we all owe so
much—to [Summoner]!

Pent
I don't doubt that, Princess. The
summoner may be an anomaly,
but an anomaly is not a root cause...
No, there is an enemy that has yet to
reveal itself. The summoner may have
been called here to fight that very foe.

Fjorm
All this... Well, it's all very shocking,
Lord Pent.
This enemy...though we do not know
its identity, it keeps us locked in
battle after battle.

Pent
If I am correct, then yes. We may well
need to prepare for a fierce battle
even now.
This unseen foe is so powerful that
the only way to defeat it will be
with the help of the summoner...
It is as though we are fighting a god.

Jorge
Hello, Anna!

Anna
Ah, Jorge. I hope you're here to
some quality wares. Direct me
to the bargains!

Jorge
Actually, I've got something a little
different for you this time... I was
asked to introduce you to—

Farina
Yes, hello! So, this is Anna's, then?

Anna
Well, this is the Askr Branch of the
Ylisse Division, to be specific, but...
Who are you?

Farina
I'm Farina of Ilia's pegasus knights.
A master mercenary at your service!
I heard from Jorge here that one
can sell any variety of things at
Anna's, so I had to see for myself.
I'm looking to sell something rather
rare and valuable: my labor!

Anna
Your...labor, huh?

Farina
That's right! I'm hoping to work
for Anna's during my down time
between training sessions.
I'm proficient at escorting important
people, transporting goods... You
name it, I can do it!

Anna
Ah, so, you want to work in my shop
then. I see...

Farina
Surely you could benefit from having
a pegasus knight and her pegasus in
your employ. Who couldn't?!
As for my pay... Well, back in Elibe
I was worth 20,000 gold. But I can
cut you a deal. Howa bout 19,000?

Anna
All right. I've got to get back to
prepping this shipment of bows
and arrows for next week...

Jorge
Right. I've got to get going myself.

Farina
Wha— Hey! You're just going to go
back to what you were doing as if
I'm not even here?
I'm offering you the deal of a lifetime!
The service of a pegasus knight AND
her pegasus! You'd pass that up?
Only women can be pegasus knights,
you know! Fewer in supply means
higher demand, don't you think?!

Anna
Well, I could use the help, so I am
looking to hire someone, but...your
asking price is a bit steep.
And on top of that, there are pegasus
knights all over in Askr. Even some
who are men, as a matter of fact.

Farina
Wh-what did you say?! No way can
a man ride a pegasus! Who? Is he
trying to ruin me?!

Jorge
Ah, right. I've seen him around...
What was his name again?

Askr's clear skies make for easy

there forever.
Hm? What's that? That pegasus
it headed this way with incredible
speed. What vigor!

Farina
Aha! A man, flying pegasusback, huh?
Care to explain yourself?
Don't think your flowing hair,
unblemished skin, and dignified
stature can fool me!

Subaki
Er...hello? I am Subaki, Sky Knight

Farina
I'm Farina of Ilia's pegasus knights,
a great mercenary and known as
the woman worth 20,000 gold!

Subaki
Ilia's pegasus knights? Ah, is that
where Fiora—

Farina
Fiora is my older sister! And Florina
is my younger sister!

Subaki
Right... You share a similar look about
the face, but...your personalities are
quite different.

Farina
What's that supposed to mean?!
Never mind! That's beside the point.
I need to know how you—a MAN—
has managed to ride a pegasus!
Only women should be able to ride
a pegasus! It's supposed to be just
us cute girls on pegasusback...
You're devaluing our profession!

Subaki
Ah, I see. Our breed of pegasus
is different in Hoshido. They don't
share the distaste for men...

Farina
Cute girl, powerful pegasus—that's
how it's supposed to be! And you're

Wait—hang on! What's going here?
Y-you ride a black pegasus?!
Every pegasus I've ever seen was
pure white! How did you come by
a black pegasus, Princess Eir?!

Eir
I am not sure I have an answer
for you...

Farina
Well, I must say that the black
pegasus really complements you
somehow, Princess Eir!
I can hardly believe my eyes! This is
incredibly rare! You could make so
much gold with this!

Eir
I do not believe them to be quite
as rare as you think. There are also
some living in Fodlan, I've heard...

Farina
Whoa, whoa whoa...
Not only do men ride pegasusback
in Askr but even the rarest colors
of pegasus are commonplace?!
This is so bad! I can practically feel my
worth as a mercenary plummeting!

Eir
Subaki... What is it that vexes her so?

Subaki
I couldn't tell you. I can't say
I understand it myself...

And now what's this?! Further salt

Just wait! THey'll see... I'll train
