Rejecting Destiny - Opening
Whoever sent this letter is backing
the unknown army.
I recognize the crest that sealed it... It
comes from one of the worlds
invaded by the Emblian Empire.
|They want me?|
|This Veronica is lending her strength|
to the pursuit of peace. We will not
simply hand her over to the enemy.
|Anna||That may be the case, but all the|
enemy sees is the face of the
princess who invaded their home.
Even if we try to explain that she's a
completely different person, it's
unlikely they'll listen.
|Sharena||Commander Anna, the enemy is|
nearing the tower!
|A battle is about to begin simply|
because of my presence... I do not
|That right there is exactly why we will|
not let them take you.
|You have committed no offense,|
Princess Veronica, so we will not
allow you to be punished.
You were summoned here along with
the rest of us. That makes us allies.
|Everything will be all right, Princess|
Veronica. It is a mere
I'm sure they'll listen to reason. We
must at least try speaking with them.
|Well, this calls for our special Order|
of Heroes persuasion technique. It'll
take some time, though.
|Anna||Until then, we must keep Veronica|
safe inside this tower!
Rejecting Destiny - C
|Alfonse||Princess Veronica? You look|
|The other me...the me of this world...|
Her blood binds her to wage war
Yet I am the one who has been swept
up into this battle...
Am I destined for war? Is that fate
dormant within my blood?
|With all due respect, Princess, that's|
nonsense. We each forge our own
destinies, plain and simple.
If I had just followed the path laid out
for me by the house I was born into,
there's no way I'd be here today.
The only force that decides who you
are and what you stand for is you.
|I'm inclined to agree. Your relation|
to this world—how you view it and its
You are the only one who can decide
that vision, Princess Veronica.
Rejecting Destiny - B
|Everyone, rejoice! Your fearless|
commander has managed to talk
some sense into Veronica's pursuers!
It's seems they've come to accept that
this Princess Veronica is not the one
that invaded their homeland.
|That's great news! That means we're|
back to focusing our efforts on just a
single enemy army.
|How are you feeling, Princess|
|Princess, would you mind if we|
chatted for a moment?
|Celica... I've caused you so much|
|You have done nothing of sort. I|
fight of my own free will.
Truth be told...before coming to this
world, I had to wield a great
And I found my sword crossed with
that of my closest friend...
Against my will, I fought and hurt
the people dearest to me. I caused
them all so much grief...
|I will never be able to erase that|
truth. However, I can atone for it.
That's why I continue to fight.
Now I know your situation is quite
different... You do not need to atone
for the actions of the other Veronica.
But what's clear to me is that you're
struggling to find your own purpose
So as long as you fight for the justice
that you yourself believe in, you'll
have no reason to fret!
|...How did you know? How did you|
know that I've...felt so lost?
|Heh... Oh, I just picked up on your|
feelings. You're an important friend
to me now, after all.
|Thank you Celica... You're right. I|
can fight for what I believe in. I must.
And what I believe in... is my dear
Rejecting Destiny - A
|I am my own person.|
Even if I share a face with Princess
Veronica of this Emblian Empire...we
are not the same.
By my own will, I shall do all I can. I
shall do what I must.
But the biggest difference between
the two of us...is the fact that I have
allies by my side.
|Oh, Princess Veronica... You have|
become one of our dearest allies. We
will fight for you always.
|Even if my blood should one day|
scream for war, I will not allow that
tragedy to unfold...
No matter what happens, I will
forge a destiny of my own choosing.
|That's the spirit, Princess.|
|If you stay the path you choose for|
yourself, I am certain it will lead you
away from conflict.
The sky of your future will be bright
and blue, unclouded by bitter war.
|Well, it's time we get going, Princess.|
We're in this together, so let's move
|Yes... If I'm with you all, I will not fall|
victim to my own loneliness.
Let us go. Let us extinguish the
flames of war. That is my reason for
being here... That is my destiny.
Celica: Warrior Priestess
Celica: Warrior Priestess - C
|Making the rounds,|
Oh? You wish to know what's on my
mind? Well, I was just thinking about
the village I lived in as a child.
Ram Village... Truth be told, I didn't
live there for very long. And yet, I can
recall my time there as clear as day.
The shape of the hitching post in
front of the tower, the markings on
I remember it all, right down to the
most minute detail.
Of course, it's not just the scenery I
can recall...but the time I spent with
the others who lived there as well.
Everyone was so kind—especially the
other children who played with me.
Alm, Gray, Kliff, Tobin, Faye... Back
then, we would spend all day running
around playing all sorts of games.
We were absolutely exhausted come
evening time but couldn't wait to do
it all again the next day.
We were nothing but smiles as we'd
plan tomorrow's games, sure the next
day would be greater than the last.
We'd all fall asleep without a doubt
that this was true... Heheh, what
wonderful times those were...
Is there some place from your past
that is always fresh in your mind?
The next time we have some time to
chat, I'd love to hear about it.
Celica: Warrior Priestess - B
|Sometimes, I can't help but wonder...|
What kind of life would I be leading
today had I never left Ram Village?
I'm Fighting as a Hero in the Order to
protect the innocent, but had I
stayed, I'd likely be plowing a field.
That is what you do in Ram Village,
after all. Plow, gather crops from the
mountains, and live a peaceful life.
A peaceful life that passes as gently
and predictably as the changing of
After leaving Ram Village, I went to an
island called Novis. Perhaps I would
have become a priestess there...
It would have been a quiet life, free
of fighting of any sort.
I'd watch over the church bell, ringing
it at the start and end of each day.
My day-to-day life would be quite
different from that of a Hero.
And yet, had I not taken up the
sword, I would not have been able to
help save so many lives.
And I would not have met many of
my dearest friends. Including you,
Had I simply lived as a villager or as a
priestess, our paths would never have
But I am neither a villager nor a
priestess... which means I must carry
out my duties as a Hero of this order.
Celica: Warrior Priestess - A
|Tell me, |
If you were given the chance to live a
life in which you were never called to
Askr...would you take it?
I see... I should have figured you
would have such as perfect answer!
You and I are one and the same. If it
is within my power to help someone
or to acquire the strength to do so...
I will not hesitate to take up my
Even if a life of peace was offered to
me, I would choose the path that
allowed me to help others.
You agree, do you not? And further,
I'm sure we aren't alone in feeling
I'm certain that everyone gathered
for the Order of Heroes shares our
Using our strength for the sake of
others rather than for ourselves is
what affords us the title of Hero.
Celica: Warrior Priestess - S
|It wasn't my strength that allowed me|
to choose the path of a Hero. The
path of a Hero allowed me strength.
In the beginning, all I had to go on
was my own ideals—mere thoughts
in my head.
I wanted to see an end to war, and I
wanted to ensure protection of
those most precious to me.
Even if I could have lived as the
princess of Zofia, letting others fight
to protect me instead of the reverse...
I would not have chosen that life.
I am strong enough to fight as a Hero.
Therefore, it is my duty to use that
strength for the benefit of others.
I did not cultivate that strength on my
own. I was entrusted with it.
So to stand idle in times of strife
would be to squander that gift. We
simply cannot abide war.
And when the fighting come to an
end and peace is finally upon us...
I'll consider anew how I wish to live
my life. The future holds more for me
than chances to wield a blade...
But until that day, I will continue to
live the life I've chosen for myself:
the life of a Hero.
Veronica: Brave Princess
Veronica: Brave Princess - C
|I was out for a walk just now...|
An Askran soldier gave me a very
She took one glance at me... It was
as if she had seen a ghost. And then
she ran off...
Is everyone here... scared of me?
You don't think so? That's... kind of
you to say. Thank you.
The Veronica you know of the
Emblian Empire... We aren't the
Even if people could look at me and
instantly see that...would it really
make a difference? Probably not...
If people continue to mistake me for
her, I won't hold it against them.
In fact, I will not even mind.
I suppose if everyone is frightened
of me as that solider was, I shouldn't
bother trying to approach anyone.
An invisible wall...
Yes. It's as if there is an invisible wall,
and it separates me from everyone
Veronica: Brave Princess - B
|How do people become close?|
Before I was summoned to this
world...I lived the life of a princess.
I didn't have to make an effort.
Everywhere I went...everyone treated
me like a friend.
So my experience in having to meet
people on their terms has been...
In this world, I'm no princess. I am
simply one of many Heroes, no
different from any other.
I can no longer count on attendants
and servants as I have before...
How do you suppose I should
approach this new experience,
You're going to...take some time to
think about it? You'll have an answer
when next we meet?
Thank you... You really are quite kind.
You look nothing alike, nor do you act
alike, and yet...you somehow remind
me of my brother.
Perhaps it's your gentle aura that
draws me to you.
Veronica: Brave Princess - A
|If I wish to become closer to others, I|
should simply...act normally?
But my "normal" is that of a princess.
It's far different from that of the
common soldier. How does one act?
You mean I just have to...greet
Good morning... Good afternoon...
And good evening? Yes, people have
said these things to me before.
But you're claiming these three
simple phases can bring me closer to
Is greeting people in such as manner
really what you consider normal?
Hmm... The only person I have ever
greeted in such a manner is my
brother, and he and I are very close...
So perhaps...if I treat others as I
treat my brother, I can become very
close to them.
I understand. I will follow your advice.
The morning has already passed, so I
must now wait for the afternoon...
Veronica: Brave Princess - S
This flower.. It's beautiful, is it not?
An Askran soldier just presented it to
me as a gift.
It worked just as you said. I began
greeting every person I passed, and
they soon became friendly.
People have once again begun to call
out to me as if we were friends.
And it's not only the soldiers. Prince
Alfonse, Princess Sharena, even the
Heroes are all treating me well.
A simple greeting is such a strange
thing. How can just a few words
contain so much meaning?
You are the one who afforded me
this opportunity... So thank you,
I no longer feel an invisible wall
between myself and others... Nor
do I feel a need for one.
Everyone treats me as their ally and
friend. I feel their camaraderie quite
So I will lend my strength to those
who have accepted me as one of
And that includes you most of all.
This would have not been possible
were it not for you.
Ephraim: Sacred Twin Lord
Ephraim: Sacred Twin Lord - C
|Hraah! Hah! Oh... Watching me just|
now, were you?
This is Garm the black axe. It's one
of the Sacred Twins—a relic from
I see my weapon as an extension of
my body, but, well... I'm not so adept
with this axe just yet.
There are reasons for that...
Though some do refer to me as the
Restoration King, you should know I
am uncompromising in combat.
It's a title they use in reverence...
They see me as a great king. I
cannot see myself that way.
I happen to be talented on the
battlefield. That is the source of my
renown, I suppose.
As to the question of whether I am
actually fit to rule over the people...
The answer to that is as yet unclear.
Ha! I can see that I'm making you
I am a warrior, a Hero, and a king...
and I will continue to devote myself
to my betterment.
If you find me deficient in any quality
required to rule justly...let me know.
Do not hesitate.
Ephraim: Sacred Twin Lord - B
|You're wondering why I don't|
consider myself a good king, aren't
In battle, I am confident I won't be
When it comes to statecraft...I am a
rank amateur. My sister Eirika is much
Certainly, I am no bookworm...but it
is more than that. I lack a natural
aptitude for these matters.
If all I can do as king to protect my
people is fight...my limitations are too
I need someone at my side who has
what I lack. Without tha, my people
That is why I believe I am not a
Of course, that does not mean I can
abandon my responsibilities. That
would be unforgivable.
Yet no matter how I swing my
weapon, I won't become a better king
But sitting behind me a desk day after
day is counter to my nature.
As I say this aloud, I can just imagine
the anxiety on Eirika's face! I must
devote myself to improving.
Ephraim: Sacred Twin Lord - A
|I see that you're still on patrol. You|
really put in the effort, don't you?
As for me, I've been training all day.
I once dreamt that I would be the
strongest mercenary in the land...just
me and my lance.
In that world, strength is all that is
needed. Titles have no meaning.
Royalty does not exist.
Even now, my thoughts often turn to
how far I could go on strength alone.
It's only natural to look back at the
path you didn't take and see it
shining like a beacon.
I can't asy that I have no regrets, but
my life does have a grander purpose
than if I were the ablest mercenary.
As king, I want to devote myself to
the citizens. Their voices will grant
me my purpose.
Mercenary or king... Whichever path I
walk will be steep. I cannot falter.
As the path of the just king unfolds in
front of me, I will not walk alone. All
those who rely on me will follow.
Ephraim: Sacred Twin Lord - S
|The black axe Garm... Somehow, I|
have come to grips with it. It fits
This, one of the Sacred Twins, is a
relic from a land that gave me a
very good friend...
By wielding this axe, I can honor him.
There is nothing that could bring me
I could never keep my mind focused
on my studies, but he was a scholar...
Yes, he was well suited to kingship.
"Better him than I," I thought. Often.
No more of that! I apologize. My task
now is to show everyone that I can
become the greater king.
I have the support of my comrades,
my sister, and, of course, you...
For his sake, too, I will carry out my
duties as king.
I will rely on your continued support,
I swear to you that I will answer your
faith in me by continuing to fight with
Hector: Brave Warrior
Hector: Brave Warrior - C
|Nine-hundred ninety-nine... One|
thousand! Phew! Who knew simply
lifting Maltet was such a workout.
I can practically see my biceps
Have you been there long? You
caught me wrapping up my daily
No matter what's going on, I can't
skip a single day. Even one rest day
will soften me up!
And I have to stay on top of my game
if I'm going to keep up with him... I'm
talking about Eliwood, of course.
Every two months, we test the results
of our training against one another
with a spar. It can get pretty serious!
As of now, the standing is 13 wins,
13 losses, and five draws. No, wait...
It was 12 wins, 14 losses, four draws.
Or was it... Well, either way, the score
is pretty even.
Which means I must win the next
one. And that means no taking it
Well, I'm feeling pretty good after this
little chat. Spot me—I've got another
thousand in me!
Hector: Brave Warrior - B
|Is there someone out there who you|
just can't let yourself lose to? Not like
fighting on the battlefield...
But like a rival. Is there some sort of
friendly competition you enjoy as a
The Arena, huh? Where the strongest
foes from other worlds gather to do
battle... Talk about tough opponents!
So it's a way for you to show off your
tactical sense by issuing commands
and executing a masterful strategy.
I see! Say, just between you and me...
What's your best record?
Ah, it's all right, you don't have to tell
me. The look on your face tells me all
I need to know—You're pretty good!
Whenever you get stronger, it makes
the Order of Heroes stronger as a
Which means we have your worthy
opponents to thank for all your
Hector: Brave Warrior - A
|Hey, you sure were something in that|
last battle. You're really becoming a
master of your own style!
I'm always eager to improve, myself.
And that means fighting stronger
foes, not just sparring with Eliwood!
But recently, my priorities have been
elsewhere. Don't get wrong, I'm
not skimping on my training.
But more than physically strong, I
need to be the type of person others
can rely on... Like how Uther was.
I didn't become who I am today for
my own benefit. And to be honest, it
wasn't entirely intentional either.
My home became engulfed in war, so
I needed to get stronger. And quickly.
But what really spurred me to action
were the survivors at my back. They
came to rely on me for protection.
And the weight of that duty... Well,
it'll make a man out of you, that's for
And of course, Eliwood is a constant
source of inspiration. Now he's
someone people can rely on.
Anyway, what I'm trying to say is
everyone's got some rough spots
to polish out.
And whichever path you choose to
walk, it's going to be a long, winding,
and branching in its own right.
The path I chose is not without its
share of hills... But getting over those
hills is how you grow.
I've come a long way since then, so
it's important to be thankful for the
peaks and valleys alike.
Hector: Brave Warrior - S
|Hey there, |
Your command in that last battle was
nothing short of superb.
You've been better and better
since we first met, and it's because
you put in the time every day.
Even if you train daily, it can be hard
to see your own progress. And that
can be pretty discouraging.
However, if you're trying to keep up
with a rival—or trying to stay ahead of
one—you'll grow without a doubt.
For me, that person is Eliwood.
He's both an irreplaceable friend and
an unparalleled rival who spurs my
And of course, I'm sure he thinks the
same of me.
He never fails to fight with all his
strength, and I always match his
As long as you continue to cultivate
your strength, you'll grow steadily
I'm lucky to have such an exceptional
friend and rival just as you are to
have so many from different worlds.
Let's you and I keep each other
motivated. What do you say?
We'll keep growing together!
