Selena
I'd like to take the opportunity
to express my gratitude at your
company, Princess Sharena.

Sharena
N-no need to be so formal! Of course
I'm happy to join in and show you all
around Askr as part of your training.

Duessel
It may be another world, but the
lives of the common folk aren't
so different. Striking, really.

Natasha
Their work supports and moves the
entire country. Not only as it is now
but into the future...

Protecting those building a future
for themselves and their children
must surely be why we're here.

Sharena
Hearing that warms my heart! Now,
shall we head back? Getting home in
one piece is part of the training too!

Knoll
Hm? What's this now... A villager?
It appears they want our attention.
Sharena
Hm... I wonder what the problem
could be. I'll go talk to them.
Sharena
Th-this is bad news! Bandits have
crossed the border and are making
a beeline toward nearby villages.

Duessel
Cowards threaten the innocent
in every world it would seem.
Sharena
There are two villages near the
border, a larger town along the river
and a smaller valley community.

Selena
Which is closest to the border?
Sharena
The valley. The bandits are sure
to target them first!

Natasha
Then there's no time to lose.
Let's move out!

Knoll
Just a moment, Natasha...

Princess Sharena, I don't suppose
you have a map of the area I could
examine, do you?

Sharena
I have one right here! Look it over.

Knoll
Hm...

賊が国境を越えて
近くの村に近づいているようです。

デュッセル
なんと…
おのれ、民を脅かす不逞の輩が
アスクにも蔓延っておるとは。
シャロン
国境の近くには、2つの村があります。
川辺にある大きな村と…
谷間にある小さな村です!

セライナ
国境からはどちらの村が
近いのでしょう?
シャロン
谷間にある小さな村です。
賊が最初に狙うとしたら
きっとその村だと思います!

ナターシャ
一刻の猶予もないようですね。
急いで参りましょう。

ナターシャ殿、少しお待ちを…
シャロン王女、周辺の地図があれば
拝見したいのですが。

Knoll
I see... It's quite a distance between
our current position and the village
in the valley.
Sharena
And to make matters worse, the
villagers said the bandits have
mages among them too.

Duessel
Even alone I could handle ten,
perhaps 20 bandits, but mages
are an entirely different problem...

Selena
We would be best served to think
of them not as mere bandits but as
a group of trained mercenaries.

Knoll
Judging from this map, we have
three potential strategies to
choose from.

First, we can head directly to aid
the valley settlement.

Second, we can head to the larger
village on the river and prepare
to defend against assault.


Natasha
What?!

You mean sacrificing the people
in the valley?


Knoll
We may not make it in time to help
them as it is. And there's a chance
we arrive only to be overwhelmed.

And if we fall, the people of the
river village would share the fate
of those in the valley.

If we make for the riverside, we will
be sure to save both ourselves and
the village there as well.


Selena
...

We will find a way. We cannot just
turn our backs and leave those
people to suffer.

Lives must never be weighed against
one another, for each is precious in
and of itself...

That is what His Majesty would say.

Sharena
You said there were three strategies,
didn't you, Knoll? You never told
us the third one...

Knoll
The third option is, I go to the border
as a decoy to lure the bandits away.

And while I have them distracted,
you all evacuate everyone from
the valley before the bandits arrive.

Natasha
You're suggesting we use you as the
decoy, Knoll? No... That's just too
dangerous! There must be some o—

Knoll
It's not as if I'm defenseless. I know
something about the use of dark
magic to confound my foes.

Besides...my life is already over. I'm
bound for the executioner's block.

It's little more than coincidence
that I'm here and alive now.


Selena
You were sentenced because you
told Prince Lyon he was making
a mistake. That is no crime!

Knoll
I aided in the destruction of the
Sacred Stones and played a role in
bringing chaos down upon Grado.

That cannot be denied, and coming
to Askr does not erase my guilt.


Duessel
...

Knoll, you once told me a—oh, what
did you call it—a "foreign anecdote
of a comedic nature," if I recall...


Knoll
The one involving the two starving
men and the one piece of bread...

And if they were to break the loaf
in two, both would die of starvation.
That is the one you mean, yes?


Duessel
Right. If either tried to save the other,
both would die. But the sacrifice of
one allows the other to live...

And yet, here you are...


Knoll
I am aware the task I have presented
myself with will not be easy.

However, I do not wish to concede
any more than I already have. I need
to believe something. I need purpose.

And my purpose here and now is
to bring about the dream of Prince
Lyon—to save everyone.


Natasha
Let me come with you!

I will keep you safe on the battlefield
if you'd have me, Master Knoll.


Selena
There is no guarantee of survival.

Natasha
I understand. That is a reality I am
prepared for. I won't get in the way.

Duessel
No. Knoll, Selena, and I will act
as the distraction.

Princess Sharena, Natasha—you two
evacuate the villagers.


Knoll
General Duessel! You do need not
risk yourself on my account.

Selena
You would have Selena the Fluorspar
and Duessel the Obsidian of Grado's
Imperial Three stand idly by? Hmph.

Duessel
Do you approve of this course,
Princess Sharena?
Sharena
Yes! Let's get moving, and stay
focused. Remember, making it
back is part of the training.

Knoll
Hm. More bandits than anticipated,
it appears...

Duessel
Still, if we don't act now, this lot
will easily overrun the village.

Selena
We have to do our part or the
village won't stand a chance.

Knoll
We knew it would be dangerous.
Now, Generals...add your power
to mine!
Fjorm
Princess Sharena, are you all right?
We came to provide backup!

Ephraim
I was expecting to see Duessel
and the others here...

Sharena
I'm glad you made it!

Cormag
Where are these bandits? I'll show
them their place.

Amelia
Bandits laid waste to my village,
so I refuse to stand by and let
it happen here!
Sharena
Oh! Umm...

Natasha
The villagers are safe.

Thanks to Master Knoll, General
Duessel, and General Selena, the
bandits dispersed.


Amelia
I should've expected as much
from General Duessel!

After coming out here to help him
as thanks for everything, he's
handled it all without us!


Duessel
Greetings! Aha, so you all came,
did you? My apologies if I had
you worried.

Ephraim
Are you hurt, Duessel? Any injuries?
And Knoll and General Selena?

Selena
Your concern is appreciated, Prince
Ephraim. The battle was hard fought,
but as you can see, we are unharmed.

Lyon
I'm proud of you, Knoll. I heard you
are to thank for keeping the villages
here safe.

Knoll
P-Prince Lyon! You have been
summoned to Askr too?

Lyon
It was a tough choice you made,
yet you made it with conviction.
And your courage was rewarded.

Knoll
Prince Lyon...in my world, I chose
one of two paths. And the path
I chose ended in tragedy.

If I had acted with more conviction,
perhaps a new way would have
opened to me.

Perhaps I could have lived without
this burden of regret...


Lyon
...

Knoll
Prince Lyon... Please allow me to ask
one thing from you.

Never stop moving toward your
dream. Never give up your vision
of your world's future.


Duessel
One needs only to reflect on their
time in Askr to find new approach
to the problems our worlds pose.

Selena
I have faith you can change the
destiny of your world without
making a sacrifice of the weak.

Lyon
I don't know what promises I can
make when it comes to after I leave
this place, but...I will remember this.

I will not forsake all I have learned,
though I have no doubt it will be
a challenge.

It will be a fine test of my limits.

Fjorm
Hello, Knoll. Headed to the library?

Knoll
Ah, Princess Fjorm, hello. Yes, I have
a few tomes to return, you see.

Fjorm
Yes, that's quire the armful of books.
Did you read them all?

Knoll
I did. Outside of training sessions,
I keep to my room most of the time.

People can be wary of mages like
myself, treating us as strangers at
best, and monsters at worst.

I believe it best to remain in the
shadows here as I did in Grado.

Fjorm
N-no! You're no monster—you're
an ally, and a good friend!

Leo
Pardon my intrusion, but...you are
the dark mage recently summoned
to Askr, aren't you?

It sounds like you wield your magic
with a just heart.


Raigh
It's good to have another mage with
a proper moral compass.

Fjorm
Ah, Prince Leo, Raigh! Knoll, these
two also practice dark magic, just
like you do.

Knoll
...

I'm sorry, you said you believe me
to have a "proper moral compass"?

So there are dark mages serving
the Order of Heroes who fit such
a description?


Leo
As you'll soon come to learn...

Raigh
Right. You can forget needing
to skulk around in the dark just
because you're a dark mage.

Those labels don't mean anything
here, so get used to it.


Knoll
H-how is that possible?

Knoll
...Hm? What's this now...

Naesala
Hey, you! Why do you keep
following me?

Henry
Huh? Oh! It's just...I'm collecting
raven feathers, that's all!

Naesala
What? Collecting feathers?!

Aren't you a dark mage? You're not
planning on using them for some
unsavory ritual, are you?


Henry
No, no. It's not for any ritual!

I was just thinking that, if I could
collect enough, maybe I'd be able
to fly too!

Crows are kind of my thing,
so I thought that was an
obvious next step.


Naesala
Whether you can fly or not, if you
are a friend to ravens, you must be
beorc—and yet you are different...

Whatever you are, do as you wish.
I won't stop you.


Henry
Great! Then I'll just follow behind
you and pick up any feathers you
drop as you go!

Knoll
...Another dark mage? And another
strange one at that.

Knoll
...Hm? What is this now...

Tharja
We had some fun today, didn't we,
Princess Sharena?

Sharena
Yes, very much! We'll have to do
it again soon.

Tharja
Sounds delightful! All right, now,
I'll let you get to today's training!

...

Phew...

I almost lost myself in the normal
girl routine after faking it for the
Princess for so long...


Knoll
...

Tharja
What're you looking at? Listening in
on me muttering to myself?

If you tell Princess Sharena any
of what you heard, you've got
a curse waiting for you, got it?

Perhaps a...three-day runny nose?
Or maybe something...much worse.
Hee hee...


Knoll
I have no intention of telling her
anything, nor would I know what
I'd be telling her in this instance...

Tharja
Oh, no? Fine then.

Now, where was I... Oh, right! Off to
collect a lock of Robin's hair for the
new curse. Hee hee hee hee...


Knoll
Yet another dark mage... And yet
another strange one—and even
stranger still.

Odin
Urrrrgh... RRRRAAAHHHH! The sky
weeps stars like so many falling tears!
Still yourself, spell hand!

Knoll
Are you hurt?! I heard your cries
of pain... Should I call for a healer?

Odin
N-no! Unnecessary... This throbbing
ache cannot be healed by the likes
of any earthly force.

I am Odin. Birthed from the womb
of darkness itself, I have traveled
against time's flow to arrive here.


Knoll
You mean to tell me you're a Hero
who has come from the future?

Odin
Precisely. Your mind is indeed
sharp, my brother in darkness...

Knoll
But...time's flow is like that of
a great river. There's no possible
way to reverse its flow...

...Ah!

Come to think of it, Prince Lyon was
researching how to use dark magic to
catch glimpses of the future.

He called it time shear.

If it is possible to see into the future,
then perhaps it is possible peer into
the past as well...and travel there...


Odin
Wait, "time shear"?! Tell me more!
The name alone is amazing!

Knoll
Huh? Is your hand better already?

Odin
...URRRGGHH!

C-close one! If I relax for even
a moment, there's a chance
I will be overcome!


Knoll
Incredible to think the Order of
Heroes has a dark mage who can
manipulate time in their ranks.

But by using such dreadful magic,
if time were to be distorted, what
might the cost be...


Odin
Hah! Whatever the cost, struggle
I must, so I may fulfill the great
quest laid out before me!

Even if the dark inferno reduced me
to ash and bone, I must... Rrrraahh!
My...spell hand! Still you!


Knoll
...Wasn't the throbbing in your
other hand a moment ago?

Odin
Oh! Look at the time! I've just
remembered I've got to...go, uh...
run an errand for my mother!

So, I must be off. Bye!


Knoll
...Perhpas the strangest dark mage
I've met thus far. It seems the Order
keeps quite the diverse roster.

Oh! Good to see you again, Knoll!
Headed to the library?

Not this time. I'm just out for a walk.
A change of pace, you might say.

Leo
Have you had occasion to meet
any of the other dark mages here,
by chance?

Knoll
Speaking of which... Here come
Prince Leo and young Raigh.

Raigh
So, ya know what I mean yet?
The dark mages around here
tend toward unhinged...

Don't get me wrong. They're all
top-notch, but...not a one cares
a lick for the goals of the Order!


Fjorm
Rather than "unhinged," I would say
they each simply have a strong sense
of self. They know what they want!

Knoll
...Many people are suspicious of
dark mages, believing we tap the
unholy power of demons.

Prince Lyon wanted to use dark
magic to save people, in part to
change those preconceptions.

Yet I, of all people, hid myself away,
believing none would accept me.

Fjorm
What matters isn't the sort of power
you use, but rather HOW you use it.
I fully believe that is all that matters!

Leo
You must have been the favorite
student in all your classes, Princess
Fjorm, parroting platitudes so easily.
Fjorm
D-did I say something wrong?

Knoll
It's what you do with power that
matters, hm? No... I should say
you've only spoken truth, Fjorm.

I think I understand now, and I will
need to take some time to consider...

How ought I to live in this world?

Not only as a practitioner of dark
magic, but as a Hero as well...

Fjorm
We are happy to have you, Knoll!
I believe in your ability to use dark
magic to take us to a bright future!

Knoll
Indeed, you have my aid. May this
land endure long enough to finally
see such a future.

Nevertheless, overextending leads

You are blessed with but one life.
Treat yours with the same respect

Thank you, Princess Eir. The Order

Both Brady and Mercedes...

They shared their feelings because

it meant betraying my country.

I could not abide the evil that held
my home in its grip.


Eir
Your actions led Prince Ephraim and
Princess Eirika to take a stand and
restore peace to the continent, right?

Natasha
It's true... Light was restored,
thanks to many good people
working together.

But the lives lost in the process are
gone forever. And it's because of me.
My actions started the war.


Eir
...

Natasha
All I could do was heal the wounded.

But even then, those I was able to
heal only returned to the battlefield,
only to get wounded all over again.

I doomed them to return to the hell
of the battlefield again and again.

For that, for all the blood spilled,
I must redeem myself somehow.
I care not what happens to me.

If others must be on the front lines,
that is where I will be as well.


Eir
Forgive my ignorance, but does your
god not wish you safe as well?

Natasha
...

Eir
If you would keep others safe as your
service, surely your god would not
ask you make a sacrifice of yourself.

...Forgive me if I've spoken out
of turn. It is not my place to speak
for your god.


Natasha
You needn't apologize. I appreciate
what you've said... It resonated with
me for the first time. Thank you.

And you're right. Light shines on all
of us alike. Each of us are worthy
of mercy, with no exception.

Right. Let's head this way.

My, Brady, was that a sigh of relief
I heard?

Brady
What, you think I was worried,

Mercedes
I just ask because I noticed Natasha
putting herself in fewer dangerous

Natasha
...I'm sorry I caused you two
such worry.

My life, too, is a blessing. And as such
it is precious and deserving of care.
I had lost sight of that.

I don't care if you were lookin' to
atone or what. People'd miss ya

And don't you forget that!

Righteous gods surely do not wish
for people to be punished for doing
as well as they can with their lot.

All we can do is our best to live
as our gods ask of us.


Natasha
Yes, I suppose you're right...

Being summoned here and making
kind new friends must have been the
will of the divine as well...

I will refocus my effort and use my
life to support those friends. No more
questing for redemption.

Ephraim
Duessel?! So, you've been summoned
here to Askr as well, have you?

Duessel
Ah. Ephraim.

I could hardly make sense of it
all at first, but having learned of Askr
and its troubles, I must lend them aid.

I may be an old man who has lost
nearly everything he once had, but
one thing I haven't lost is my spear.

And I will use that spear to protect
the innocent, even here...


Ephraim
I see no signs of age, Duessel...
Your vigor belies your years!

Duessel
Hmph. And you... Your face has
changed in some way. You've the
look of a man long at war.

You've seen many a battle since
coming to this world, haven't you?


Ephraim
I have. Alongside many powerful
Heroes from other world who have
gathered here.

Some wield lances in ways I'd never
imagined. Some fell foes with one
swing of their mighty arm...

Askr is a treasure trove of fantastic
martial techniques.


Duessel
I see... So you've new rivals here
to test your might against, and you
have grown stronger to meet them.

Ephraim
But it's not the Heroes alone that are
impressive and worthy of admiration...

Many seem to bear the most famous,
treasured, legendary lances their
realms have to offer.


Duessel
Do they now?! I would very much
like to see such fine weapons.

Ephraim
I would be happy to give you a tour.
First things first, however...

Duessel
Aha! So you want to face me in
combat, then. So be it. Do not hold
back! Not that you need to be told...

You've been giving it your all against
me since before you knew the proper
way to hold a spear.


Ephraim
Indeed. Holding back is not in my
nature. Now then, on your guard!

Dimitri
You are Duessel the Obsidian,
one of the six generals of Grado's
imperial military, are you not?

Duessel
One and the same. Though I do not
bear that title any longer.

Dimitri
I am Dimitri Alexandrre Blaiddyd
of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus.

I, too, am a student of the lance.

When I heard the man who taught
the great Prince Ephraim to wield
the lance had arrived in Askr...

I had to meet you myself, and ask
you for a training session as well.


Duessel
I see. If you don't mind taking
lessons from an old man, I'd be
happy to share what I know.

Duessel
Hm! Your technique is fantastic.
There are no two ways about that.

Your mastery of the fundamentals,
down to your footwork...the timing
of your jabs... You should be proud.


Dimitri
You say so, and yet...I got the distinct
impression I was entirely outclassed.

Duessel
You are over-reliant on your strength.

Your might is exceptional, but that
power has lent itself to overuse,
which makes you predictable.


Dimitri
I rely overmuch on my strength...
You may be right.

Duessel
Ephraim is very much like you
in that regard.

With your strengths, if you integrate
more subtle technique, your power
will grow in leaps and bounds.


Dimitri
Of course Prince Ephraim's master
could identify my weak points—and
how to overcome them—so quickly.

It would be my honor to train with
you again someday—when you
have time to spare.


Duessel
Hm! Just like Ephraim. You have an
insatiable desire for more strength.

I welcome the chance to train with
you again. I am happy to teach you
all I am able.

Hey, uh, General Duesel, sir?
Mind if we ask ya somethin'?

Duessel
You two are... Donnel and Nephenee,
if I recall.

Nephenee
That's right, sir. Thing is, we have
an important favor to ask.

Donnel
Bein' called Heroes and all, we're
swingin' our lances like our lives
depend on it a'course, but...

We never learnt how to fight with
one—not REALLY, I mean. We're
only common folk, ya see.


Nephenee
Out in the country, there's no one
to teach lancework—not properlike,
anyhow. You understand, sir?

Duessel
I see... I witnessed some of your
technique during training earlier,
and it was nothing to take lightly.

But if you'd like a lesson, I'd be
happy to teach you.


Donnel
Really?! Oh, we'd be ever so grateful!

Nephenee
Thank you, sir...

Donnel
...Phew! That was some lesson!
Th-thank you!

Nephenee
He's held his own against both
of us... He didn't ever break
a sweat!

Duessel
You two fought well! You say you
have no formal training? Incredible.
You've some talent, then!

Donnel
We're just actin' outta desperation
is all. We don't really know what
we're doin' even as we're doin' it.

Nephenee
W-we hate war, ya see... We only
want to put an end to the fighting
as fast as we can...

Duessel
With that attitude, you're sure to
grow strong—and sure to be worthy
of such strength.

Sometimes attitude is more important
than experience.

You say you're common folk, that
you've no training, but...those facts
have no bearing on your impact.

If you know why you fight, with your
goal fixed firm in your mind, you will
get stronger.


Donnel
Th-thank you, sir! Just you sayin'
so makes me wanna keep at it!

Nephenee
General Duessel, sir... All the same,
would you mind terribly if we wanted
more lessons?

Duessel
Of course not. If ever you need help,
I will do what I can. So don't hesitate
to call on me, either of you.

Hail, General Duessel. I see you're

who asks.

Duessel
I don't suppose you've come to
learn the art of the lance, have you,
Prince Alfonse?

Alfonse
Oh, no, no. Mastering the sword
is task enough for now, thank you!
Alfonse
Though it does look like you will
have gained more students before
the day is through.

Duessel
Indeed. I am lucky that each Hero
is a unique joy to train.

Alfonse
Thank you for offering them access
to your wealth of experience.

Having you here must be like having
a living, breathing training manual
for these young Heroes.


Duessel
You know, there was a time in my
life when I had lost everything...

My faith in my country, my direction
in life...everything.

Only when I encountered youths,
Prince Ephraim and Princess Eirika,
risking their lives to save the world...

Only then did I regain purpose. I had
no choice but to take up the lance
again, knowing I had a role to play.


Alfonse
I firmly believe there is a similar
purpose for you here in Askr,
General Duessel.

Duessel
Thank you, Prince Alfonse. Hearing
as much strengthens my resolve.

It is an honor for a warrior to pass
experience on to young heroes, and
I will not take the opportunity lightly.

I will build a foundation for them
that will hold steady until peace
is brought to this land.

Upon Obsidian I swear it.

Oh, Myrrh. So you've come

...Allow me to apologize for what
I did to you, back in the imperial
capital, back before...well.

I took your dragonstone and was
never able to return it...


Myrrh
No, I should apologize to you...
You were a good person, but
I couldn't save you.

Ephraim did everything he could
to save you too, but...not enough.


Selena
You have no reason to be sorry.
I upheld my oath, just as you
fought according to your beliefs.

At times, opposing views of justice
come into conflict. That's war.


Myrrh
B-but...

Selena
If you were saddened at my loss,
that brings me solace. So thank
you, Myrrh.

Myrrh
I don't want such sadness here
in Askr.

Selena
Nor do I. You're right not to.
Perhaps this is why I've been
called here...

From now on, we are comrades.
So, I'll be relying on you, Myrrh.


Myrrh
Thank you... I'm happy to have
you with us, Selena.

Selena
Myrrh... Do you still carry that
dragonstone of yours?

Myrrh
Of course. Right here in this pouch...

Well, your scent DOES lead this

Hey, shut it! THIS is why I steer
