Anna
We've got trouble! We just received
a report from one of our guards!
Mjölnir's forces are on the march!
The hammer of the gods is coming
down on our heads!
Alfonse
What?! Mjölnir? But how...

Eirika
Mjölnir, is it...
I heard mention of its name when
I was summoned to this world...

Marth
The god Thórr advances on Askr,
leading her army to lay siege on us.
That is indeed trouble.
Anna
Reports describe a massive army,
extending the width of the horizon,
all bearing down on us.

Marianne
How terrible... This Thórr is nothing
like our goddess.
Alfonse
We must make for Midgard's Shield,
to the south.
There we will find treasures gathered
from other worlds. We can use those
relics to resist Thórr.
That is the last stronghold that can
withstand Mjölnir's forces. If they do
break through...we're finished.

Gatekeeper
Prince Alfonse! I-I'm no Hero—in fact,
guarding gates is about the closest
I get to any heroics...but still!
I want to lend my aid to defend
the gates of Midgard's Shield!

Alfonse
Thank you. We'll be happy to have
your assistance.
Anna
We must mobilize every Hero we can.
Prince Marth, all of you, I know you
were only just summoned, but...
we need your help!

Marth
Of course. That is what we were
summoned to this world to do.

Marianne
I will pray the goddess grants us
the strength to endure whatever
comes our way...

Eirika
We must not let the sun set on Askr...
Not without fighting with everything
we have first!

ミョルニルの軍勢が
再び動き出したらしいわ!
アルフォンス
本当ですか…!?

エイリーク
ミョルニル…。
この世界に召喚されたとき
[Summoner]さんから
その存在を伺いました。

マルス
戦神トール率いる軍勢が
アスク王国に迫っているのだね。
アンナ
ええ。
地平を埋め尽くすほどの大軍勢が、
私たちの国を滅ぼそうとしてくる…

マリアンヌ
なんて無慈悲な…
私たちの主とは正反対の振る舞い…
アルフォンス
僕たちはこれから
南にある秘宝砦に向かう。
そこには異界より集められた
秘宝が眠っているんだ。
彼らに抗することができる遺産がね。
そこがミョルニルを受け止める最後の砦。
突破されれば…アスク王国に明日はない。

門番
アルフォンス王子…!
じ、自分は英雄ではなく
できることは門を守ることくらい。
なので、秘宝砦の門を守るため
力添えさせていただきます…!

アルフォンス
ありがとう。その申し出
喜んで受けさせてもらうよ。
アンナ
動ける英雄を総動員するわ。
召喚されたばかりで悪いけど
マルス王子たちにも力を貸してもらうわよ!

マルス
もちろんだよ。
ぼくたちはそのために
この世界に呼ばれたのだからね。

マリアンヌ
主が…私たちの背中を
支えてくれることを祈りましょう…

エイリーク
守りましょう、この国の未来を…!

Anna
Get this equipment to the north gate!
Confirm our stock of weapons and
armor while you’re at it!
Report any problem areas to
Merlinus! He will see to getting
the issue addressed.

Marth
The Heroes defending the east gate
are early in position.

Anna
Already? Wonderful! Thank you!
I guess there’s a reason they call
you the Hero-King.
Your knack for leadership really is
something you ought to be proud of…
I certainly would be!

Marth
Princess Eirika joined me, and her
ability to rouse the spirit of those
around her is what made it possible.

Anna
Well, incredible work to the both of
you. Now, I see more equipment has
just arrived. I’ll leave it to you!

Marianne
This flurry of activity is almost
overwhelming…

Gatekeeper
Yes, they certainly move with a sense
of urgency. I can feel the tension in
the air so strongly, I’m trembling!

Eirika

Marth
Is something the matter,
Princess Eirika?

Eirika
I was reminded of a conversation
I once had with my brother…

Marth
Your brother… Ephraim, correct?
Prince of Renais?

Eirika
That’s right. In times like these,
it can often feel that the only
constant in this world is war.
No matter the age, the fighting never
seems to cease…
In our past, when monsters roamed
the land, people would ride out to
fight them…
And when there were no monsters,
the people would instead turn their
weapons on each other.

Marianne

Eirika
Even though people know it is
foolish to wage war, they continue
to do so, again and again. And why?
Image what we could accomplish
if we worked together rather than
against one another…

Marth
As someone who has seen their fair
share of battles, I know well what
you mean.

Marianne
But now, our foe wields power
only available to the gods…
Don’t we have to fight if we’re
to have any hope of surviving?
What other choice do we have?

Marth
You’re right, Marianne. As Princess
Eirika said, the battle we face may
seem unending and hopeless…
However, if we do not draw our
blades and meet our foe, hope is
lost all the same.
If we must defeat a god to ensure
the future of this kingdom, we will
do as is required of us.

Eirika
We must prepare ourselves for
the fight that lies ahead.

Marth
For now, we focus on surviving
Mjölnir’s onslaught. Let nothing
distract you from that!

Marianne
R-right!

Gatekeeper
Nothing will get past me!

Gatekeeper
Ugh... Knowing a god’s forces are
bearing down on us is absolutely
nerve-racking…

Marianne

Gatekeeper
Is something wrong, Marianne?
That expression on your face isn’t
doing my nerves any good either…
I-I’m sure everything will be all right!
Reports are that attacks on the west
gate are not as severe as expected.

Marianne
It’s just that…ever since I was young,
I’ve seemed to attract misfortune…
But…this is no time to become
caught up in the past. I have to
do everything I can to help…

Gatekeeper
Yes, even if it costs me my life,
I swear to defend this ga– Huh?!
That cloud, on the horizon… Is it
my imagination or does it appear
to be headed this way?

Marianne
…I-it’s a dust cloud! It must be the
enemy forces on the march–an
incredible number of troops…

Gatekeeper
Oh no… Have we been
outmaneuvered?

Marianne
We have so few Heroes positioned
to defend this gate…
Until some relief arrives, it will
be up to us to hold them off,
goddess willing!

Gatekeeper
It’s all we can do for now!

Gatekeeper
Y-you! You won’t get past this gate!
Not on my watch!
…I wish I’d grabbed a sharper
lance before being summoned
from the monastery.
Thórr

Gatekeeper
Eeek! Wh-who is that?! That pillar
of muscle towering over the rest…
Thórr
A single soldier guarding the front…
Have the Midgard forces been so
exhausted, they can do no better?
…Or is it that they have so little
respect for the hammer of the gods?

Gatekeeper
…It can’t be! That, the one leading
Mjölnir… Is that Thórr herself?
The god of war–here?!
Thórr
Only the chose few can withstand
the might of Mjölnir…
Name yourself, soldier. How is
it you justify to yourself standing
against me?

Gatekeeper
I-I can’t even look in your eyes
without trembling out of control,
but even so…
I justify my standing here because…
it is the whole reason I am here.
My duty is to protect the gate!
Thórr
Step aside, unless you would rather
be broken along with this gate.

Hhhrrgg…
Thórr
Stay down.

Marianne
Oh no! Gatekeeper! I can’t reach
you–there are too many of them!

Gatekeeper
Owww… Everything hurts…
But…I cannot…allow you to get
past this gate!
Thórr
Even in your current sorry state,
you still keep the gate?

Gatekeeper
Heh… Keeping gates is all I know.
This gate protects the hopes and
dreams of those on the other side.
And so…I will stand until my legs
give out beneath me!
Thórr

Please forgive any disrespect I may
have paid you. I was mistaken. You
are a Hero of true strength indeed.
As such, I will cease my patronizing
and approach you as a worthy
adversary–with my full strength…

Gatekeeper
G-guh… Everything is…going dark.
Is this…the end?

Marianne
Stay with me, Gatekeeper!
…Look! Reinforcements!
Prince Marth and Princess Eirika
have arrived!

Gatekeeper
Ah… That’s…good.
Then, the gate is in…good hands…

Marianne
Gatekeeper! ….Gatekeeper?!

Gatekeeper
Huh. So the reinforcements arrived
and we managed to hold the west
gate, then? Glad to hear it.

Alfonse
It’s all thanks to you standing firm
against impossible odds.
Please, allow me to express my
gratitude on behalf of the people
of Askr.

Gatekeeper
N-no! Th-that’s much too much!
You don’t need to do all that!
I was only doing my job!

Marth
Separately, each of us has only so
much strength. Together, though,
our gathered force knows no equal.
You are a great Hero and deserve
recognition as someone who stood
firm face to face with a god!

Gatekeeper
I– Thank you so much. To hear
something like that…and from the
Hero-King himself…it’s too much!
But as a Hero, I henceforth pledge
to use what meager ability I have to
offer aid to the Order of Heroes!

Eirika
More battles awaits…but hope remains
on the horizon.
With that as our guide, we will fight
toward it, for the people and the
future of Askr.

Marianne
Even if we find ourselves standing
against a god once again…
We can rely on the goddess and
other righteous gods to lend us
their strength to counter our foes.
I have faith we can keep the hopes
and dreams of the people safe from
whatever threats may come.

Fjorm
Prince Marth, thank you very much!
You really were a huge help in the
battle just now.

Marth
I’m glad I could be of assistance,
but I did not do anything to deserve
such praise.
This victory was gained through the
strengths of every Hero who lent us
their aid.

Fjorm
But you were the one who brought
us all together. Your encouragement
made it feel like victory was assured.
It is an honor to battle alongside one
so renowned across so many worlds.
You truly are a Hero among Heroes!

Marth
That is kind of you to say,
Princess Fjorm, but surely
you are exaggerating.
Fjorm
No, not at all! The more I learn about
you, the deeper my respect for you
becomes, Prince Marth.
For the sake of your people, you
threw yourself into a war with only a
few allies at your side…
And with each battle, you gathered
more allies to your cause. It’s almost
like…something from a fairy tale!
Fjorm
Ah… I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to call
the battles you risked your life in
a fairy tale…

Marth
Oh, no! It is nothing to be sorry about,
Princess Fjorm.
But, you see… I did not survive those
battles because of any great skill or
merit of my own.
It was the people around me… My
allies. My friends. They were the ones
who brought about our victory.

Marth
There are some who refer to me
as the Hero-King…
However, I do not believe I am
truly worthy of such a grand title.

Fjorm
Why is that?

Marth
Peace only returned to the continent
because of the strength of all of my
allies, and the blood they shed.
We all fought to reform the world we
lived in and forge a path for its future.
Their conviction brought peace.
My role was simply to become a
banner they could all rally behind.

Fjorm
But then…wasn’t everyone following
your lead as you pressed forward?

Marth
If they did, I am glad it was only my
back they saw. I’m certain my face
would have betrayed the fear I felt.
Fjorm
No, I… I doubt that is what they
would have seen, Prince Marth.
They trusted you…

Marth
…That’s true, and I can never thank
them enough for it. But had it been
you in my stead…
I have no doubt you would be the
one whose name was passed down
into legends.
You also desire people, and care
deeply for your companions. You
have a gentle heart, Princess Fjorm.

Fjorm
I-I am…honored to hear such
kind words!

Marth
Well then, I will see you for training
tomorrow. Be sure to get some rest.

Fjorm

Prince Marth… Although he holds
great renown as a Hero, he is still
such a kind and modest person…
That must be why he is so beloved
by his allies… I need to work even
harder to follow his example!

Marth
Princess Fjorm, it looks as if your
training has borne some fruit.
The team you led today moved
splendidly. Alfonse had nothing
but praise for them as well.
Fjorm
Thank you, Prince Marth.
…Though, in truth, I was merely
imitating the leadership you displayed
in the battle the other day.

Fjorm
When to push forward, when to pull
back… Finding a formation that
complemented my allies’ strengths…
There is still so much I would like
to learn from you, Prince Marth.
This experience has shown me
once again just how worthy you
are of being called the Hero-King.

Marth
Hmm… I did say that I did not believe
I deserved such a title…
But if the symbol of a Hero-King
is necessary to bring others together,
I cannot shirk from my responsibility.
I can only strive to live up to the title
bestowed upon me.
And so, I will try to meet the
expectations others have of me…
To be someone they can rely on.

Fjorm
I see… In your own way, you strive
to live up to the title of Hero-King.
Earlier, you spoke of the conviction
of your allies, and how they brought
about peace. Is this, then, yours?

Marth
…Perhaps. In the end, it is simply
what feels most right to me.

Fjorm
Wow, I’m learning so much!

Marth
To me, what’s most important is not
the glory of a grand title or your
name enshrined in legend…
…but rather moving forward,
into a new era, and building a
brighter future.
If the title of Hero-King is needed to
make that happen, it is a title I will
wear with pride.

Morale has been really high lately!
I mean, just look at how motivated
everyone is!
Sharena
Yeah! It really feels like all the Heroes
are working together better than
ever before!

Fjorm
In their own way, each Hero pushes
us forward, helping us and inspiring
us to improve.
And Prince Marth’s influence
in that regard truly cannot be
overstated.

Anna
Yep. Even Heroes from other worlds
recognize his talent.
Sharena
He is the Hero-King, after all!
I almost wish he could stay
in Askr forever!

Fjorm
He would be a boon, to be sure.
But Prince Marth said something
that has stuck with me.

Marth
Truthfully, I wish for a peaceful world
where Heroes do not need to battle.
I think we all do.
But in order to create a world where
people do not need to swing swords,
we must be the ones to do so now.
One day, peace may come to Askr,
and when it does, we Heroes may
fade away, forgotten save in legends.
However…even if Heroes vanish
from this world, the will for peace will
remain. That is what believe.

Sharena
The will for peace… Yeah, I
also want that to live on.

Fjorm
As do I. Prince Marth has helped me
understand the future we must strive
for, and the hope we must protect.

Anna
With all that wisdom to share, Prince
Marth is almost like a spiritual pillar
for the Order of Heroes.
…Incidentally, what if we gathered
quotes from him and made a book
out of it! Talk about inspired profits!

Fjorm
I-I’m not sure the prince would
approve of that idea…

Linhardt
Hello, Marianne.
Actually, I hear five years have
passed for you. I suppose I should
call you Lady Marianne.

Marianne
Linhardt! Your clothes… So you
were summoned to Askr during
our time at the Officers Academy…
Um… Please call me whatever you
like. This is...nostalgic.

Linhardt
Well, I suppose this uniform would
be nostalgic after five years…
All right. I will call you Marianne,
as I always have.

Marianne
Um, Linhardt… Was there something
you wanted to talk about?

Linhardt
Well, there is another Marianne
in this world, one from our time at
the Officers Academy.
I want to ask you about your
Crest, but your younger self
is reluctant to talk about it.

Marianne
I’m sorry…

Linhardt
Well, you’re from five years in the
future. I don’t think you need to
apologize for anything.
I thought you might be more willing
to tell me about your Crest, given
you’ve likely grown over the years.

Marianne
I don’t know everything about it, but
I can share what I do know, if that’s
OK…

Linhardt
Of course. Thank you, Marianne.
And… May I ask one more thing,
about your outfit?

Marianne
Oh, does it look bad? I’m sorry…

Linhardt
I think it looks quite good on you,
personally, but that’s not what I
was alluring to…
The outfit itself is almost identical to
that of a typical dancer, but there are
differences in the small details.
These decorative parts are
reminiscent of the clothing worn
in Fódlan centuries ago.

Marianne
Oh, yes. I’ve heard that this kind of
clothing has some sort of ritual
significance…
It’s meant to bring peace to the souls
of my ancestors.

Linhardt
That leads me to my question. Could
your ancestors have anything to do
with the Erased Hero?

Marianne
Um…

Linhardt
The Crest of the Beast…

Marianne
I–

Linhardt
The 10 Elites of Fódlan followed
Nemesis, the King of Liberation,
into battle…
But that’s not the full story.
There is a legend that an eleventh
Hero existed, though he has been
erased from history.
Is it possible that your ancestor is
that Hero?

Linhardt
Askr is a kingdom where different
realms intersect.
The library here contains a wealth
of information across all kinds of
texts.
Among them, there are some
about another world that seems
much like Fódlan.

Marianne
Askr really is a special place…

Linhardt
In the library, I found one heroic tale
that seemed to be about Nemesis
and the 10 Elites of Fódlan.
We learned about Nemesis and the
10 Elites in class, but this tale
mentions an eleventh Hero.

Marianne

Linhardt
In the other texts I read about this
Erased Hero, the term “beast”
appeared frequently.
According to those tales, the Hero
transformed into a beast and
massacred people.
They also say that those who bear
the same Crest as the Hero still turn
into a beast each night to kill people.

Marianne
That’s only a myth…
But I’ve been told that Crest is a
symbol of disaster. It brings tragedy
to anyone involved with it…

Linhardt
The Crest you’ve kept hidden all
these years… It is the Crest of the
Beast, isn’t it?

Marianne
…It was not originally called the
Crest of the Beast.
I was told that my ancestor, the Hero
Maurice, abused the power of the
Crest…and it turned him into a beast.
That’s how it got that horrible name.
The Crest has been passed down
and kept secret since…

Linhardt
Hmm… So he pushed beyond his
limits and paid the price.
Nothing I read mentioned how the
Hero died. Do you know anything
about that?

Marianne
Um…
He…died…as a beast, having never
against returned to his true form…
By all accounts, at least.

Linhardt
I see. So you wore that outfit in the
hope that you could bring him
some peace…

Linhardt
Marianne, do you have a moment?

Marianne
Aw, what a cute cat! And is that a
rabbit?
I’ve never seen breeds like these
before… The rabbits in Askr are
bigger than average…

Linhardt
Ranulf, Panne, if you please.

Ranulf
Hey, beorc!

Panne
Hello.

Marianne
A-am I seeing this correctly? Oh,
Goddess…

Ranulf
I’m Ranulf, a warrior from Gallia.
I’m a laguz, which means I can turn
into a cat…as you can see.

Panne
My name is Panne, from Ylisse.
I am the last of the Taguel.

Linhardt
You see, Marianne, there are several
Heroes in the Order who can
transform into beasts.

Marianne
I don’t know what to say… Is this
like the power from a Crest?

Ranulf
Nope. All laguz are born with the
ability to transform.

Panne
Both these forms and our beast
forms are equally our true selves.

Linhardt
In Fódlan, humans can transform
into beasts using the power of
Crests…or, rather, Crest Stones.
But they can’t turn back into their
human forms. The transformation
only breaks when they die.

Ranulf
That sounds more like a curse than
a transformation, if you ask me.
There were people like that in my
world, too, who couldn’t return to
their human forms…

Marianne
Oh…

Panne
But we are not like that. We can
transform at will.

Linhardt
Ranulf and Panne aren’t the only
ones. There are similar beings in
places like Hoshido and Nohr.
Throughout all these different worlds,
there are people who can transform
into beasts... It’s fascinating.

Ranulf
I thought Fódlan's transformations
might be similar to ours, but…
Now that I’ve heard more, it seems
like Fódlan's have a different…
significance? That’s the word.

Marianne
Yes. For us…transforming into a beast
is the price you pay for using too
much of your power.
Because of that, my ancestors who
inherit the Crest of the Beast
feared it and kept it secret.

Panne
But that power is also the source of
your strength, is it not? It depends
on how you use it.
In order to survive, we must learn
how to face the power within us.

Marianne
Hm…

Ranulf
Marianne, if you have power inside
you and things you want to
accomplish…
It might be a good idea to use that
power instead of fearing it.

Marianne
I…

Linhardt
You won’t transform into a beast
if you don’t overuse your Crest’s
power, correct?

Panne
There are many like you here. If you
approach your limits, you need only
look to your allies for help.

Ranulf
I’m using my power to bring pride
to Gallia.

Panne
I…use it to survive. And for our
people.

Linhardt
And Marianne…I know you can
master the power of the Crest of the
Beast without losing your humanity.

Marianne
Thank you, Linhardt. And Ranulf,
and Panne…
In the past, I…I believed that my
Crest was a curse, and that I was
nothing more than a burden.
But then something happened that
helped me accept myself. I realized I
had friends…and that I wanted to live.
Still… That doesn’t mean the power
of my Crest is gone.
Facing that is important as well.
Linhardt, that’s what you wanted
to show me, isn’t it?

Linhardt
Well, you already have the power.
If you can use it safely, I think you
should.

Marianne
The power of my Crest can be a
good thing. But I must not rely
on it too much.
The warnings left by my ancestors…
They are as much a legacy as the
Crest itself.
I love animals… Nothing would make
me happier than if the Crest of the
Beast were no longer seen as evil.
S-so… Um…

Linhardt
What’s wrong, Marianne? You’re
fidgeting…

Marianne
Ranulf, Panne…
Would you mind, um…letting me
see you transform again?

Panne
Such an expectant look. She was
not lying about her love of animals…

Seteth
I believe you only recently arrived,
but I hope the importance of your
role is not lost on you.
We expect good work from you here
is Askr, as well. Make sure you do
not neglect you duties.

Gatekeeper
Yes! Of course!

Seteth
…Back at Garreg Mach, even I
knew of the devotion you put
into your work.
I hope to see that same dedication
here in Askr, protecting the Order
of Heroes. …That is all.

Gatekeeper
Yes sir! I will give it
everything I have!

Gatekeeper
Seteth… I guess that’s his way of
looking out for me, since I was
just summoned.
Prince Alfonse, Princess Sharena…
Everyone here is so kind. I need
to live up to their expectations!

Claude
What’s this? So, you’ve be
summoned to Askr too then?

Gatekeeper
Why, you’re from…House Riegan!
Greetings! Nothing to report!

Claude
Just as serious as always, I see.
To think even you would end up
being summoned here…

Gatekeeper
To be honest, it’s as much of a
shock to me as the rest of you.
I barely even know my way around,
so it’s always a relief to see a
familiar face.
…Speaking of which, there are a lot
more Heroes from Fódlan here than
I expected.
Professors, students…even some of
the Knights of Seiros are here! Is this
a secondary branch of Garreg Mach?

Claude
I hear there are older versions of us,
though I haven’t met any of mine yet.
Askr certainly is an interesting place!

Gatekeeper
It is! But no matter how many Heroes
I might recognize from Fódlan, I need
to remain as vigilant as possible.
I have a duty as the gatekeeper,
and I will see that duty done!

Claude
Some Heroes are rather…unique, so
it might take some getting used to.
Just try to not get hurt, OK?

Gatekeeper
Hey, stop right there! This is no

somewhere else, OK?

Nah
Are you calling us children?

Tiki
Sorry, but we just returned from
the Aether Keep and have very
empty tummies.

Gatekeeper
Then…shouldn’t you go home?
You won’t get something to eat by
sneaking into the Order’s base.

Tiki
Huh? But this IS our home.

Gatekeeper
W-wait just a moment! Children
aren’t allowed in the castle–it’s
way too dangerous!

Nah
…It seems that there has been a
misunderstanding here. We both
work directly with the Order.

Gatekeeper
What?

Tiki
That’s right! We’re both really,
really strong!

Nah
And if we get any hungrier, we’ll be
forced to eat our own teeth just to
keep our stomachs at bay!
So hurry up and let us through.

Gatekeeper
B-but… There’s no way little girls
like you are…

Tiki
Then, I suppose we will just have to
transform and prove it to you!

Gatekeeper
Trans…form? What do you me–

Tiki
Here I go!

Gatekeeper
Sh-she turned into a dragon!
But how? Am I dreaming?!

Nah
Tiki, you’ll scare people if you
transform so suddenly. At least
give them a warning first.

Tiki
Oh no, I’m sorry!
Did I scare you?

Gatekeeper
(N-now that I think about it, didn’t
Princess Sharena mention
something like this?)
(She said some Heroes transform
on the battlefield… But isn’t that
usually just a figure of speech?!)
I am so sorry! Please head on
through.

Tiki
Yay! Thank you!

Nah
Whew! Now we can finally get
something to eat…

Hmm… If words ain’t enough to

Wh-what sharp lancework! I’m so

Aww shucks, ain’t nothin’ to worry

a regular ol’ villager until recently.
And hey! It’s actually pretty
reassurin’ to have a proper

So I’ll be countin’ on ya to keep up
the good work, ya hear?

Gatekeeper
Of course! Just leave it to me!

Gatekeeper
…Whew, guess I need to stop judging
books by their covers. There really are
all kinds of Heroes here.
I still have a long way to go as a

this lesson and grow from it!
But seriously…why DOES he have

I’m glad to hear it. There are some

It’s certainly a challenge sometimes,

But it’s an important duty, so I am

Well, if you come across any

I see… Well, I suppose Eirika has

They are all Heroes who have proven
their virtue. There is no need to
worry. Although…
In the unlikely event that anything
untoward does happen, I will fulfill
my duty.

Ephraim
There is not yet enough reason to
give it much thought.
By the way, Seth, have you noticed
how Eirika is dressed? It’s almost
like…

Seth
Yes. She quite closely resembles you,
Your Highness.

Ephraim
Why, I wonder…?

Seth
Perhaps it would be best to ask
Lady Eirika herself.
If I may speak plainly, you are also
dressed differently, my lord. What
were your reasons?

Ephraim
That’s a fair observation. Well…
Worry as I may about disappointing
my father, I wanted to wear this to be
closer to him… Even if only slightly.

Seth
I understand, my lord. King Fado was
a great king. He earned the trust and
respect of his people.

Ephraim
Seth. What do you see when you
look at me?
Not my appearance, but my ability
to lead. My valor, my wisdom…
My vision for our country…
Am I…getting closer to my father?

Seth
That is for the people to decide,
Lord Ephraim. But if you want
my opinion…
You’re still just halfway there. It’s
up to you to keep going.

Ephraim
You’re just as critical as ever, But
that’s precisely why I can trust in
your words.
I will become a great king, just like
my father. By wearing this… I won’t
lose sight of that goal.
As for Eirika…

Back then, when you asked me

That answer probably disappointed
you.
Whether it is my nature, or because
I was raised to fight… I have a lust
for battle that cannot be stilled.

Eirika
I remember…

Ephraim
But in the midst of battle… I can
sometimes see that sad look on
your face.
I want to become compassionate and
kind…like you, Eirika. You are beloved
by anyone who lays eyes on you.
If I am to become a truly great king,
learning your kindness is a necessity.

Eirika
Brother…

Seth
Lady Eirika. Lord Ephraim. If
I may…
The late King Fado possessed both
the kindness of Lady Eirika and
the strength of Lord Ephraim.
Kindness without strength is far
too easy to take advantage of.
Strength without kindness leads
to tyranny and misery.
The king who possesses both
qualities is the kind of king the
people want.

Eirika
Seth…

Seth
You both are still two separate halves
of that whole.
Without that balance, the greatness
of a king like your father remains out
of reach.
It’s up to you to find that balance. If
you nurture those missing qualities…
One day, you will each possess
both the strength and kindness
befitting a great leader.
