Kris
Let's...try this one more time.

Kris
Yes...let's.

Kris
My name is Kris.
I'm a soldier in the 7th Platoon
of Altea's army.

Kris
My name is also Kris.
I'm also a soldier in the 7th Platoon
of Altea's army.

Kris
What is the name of the village
you grew up in?

Kris
Sera. Who is your grandfather?

Kris
MacLear.

Kris
Our lives are...identical.

Kris
It seems so.

Julian
Same names, titles, histories... Only
difference between you is gender.
Neat. What do you think, Lena?

Lena
At a glance, they are different people.
But looking closely... They do seem
to have the same presence.

Kris
Let's try some deeper questions.
How do you prefer to deal with
your injuries?

Kris
Training right through them is the
only thing that's comfortable. What
was your grandfather's wish for you?

Kris
"Kris, become the sword of Altea.
Acquire an unbreakable strength
and devotion."

Kris
We are the same person.

Kris
Two different worlds, but the same
exact life experiences...

Julian
Askr's never short on surprises.

Lena
From what I understand, this sort of
occurrence is actually rather
commonplace here...

Kris, Kris, I look forward to working
with both of you moving forward.

Kris
Julian, Lena, it's very good to see
you both. Let's continue to combine
our strength together on the field.

Julian
Ah, well...for us, this is actually more
of a first meeting, since the Kris in
our world

was...
Oh, that's not important! It's great
to meet you.


Kris
You mean the Kris you knew
was a man. Both of you?

Lena
Yes, that's right.

Kris
So no one here is actually...
from my own world?
To you I am only some kind of...
alternate version?

Kris
They went that way! Circle 'round
for a pincer attack!

Kris
Way ahead of you! Yah!

Anna
Some spirited training happening
here. Their fighting styles are so
alike too. It's uncanny.

Julian
Yeah, this isn't surprising. The Kris
we knew in our world always trained
insanely hard.

Lena
Their grandfathers instilled this in
them, as did a number of near-death
experiences, I hear.

It seems that's just one more detail
they both share.

Anna
That's right—you two were only
acquainted with one of the Krises.

To my eyes, they're almost exactly
the same. Posture, bearing, attitude,
swordplay, footwork...

The difference in gender is nothing
compared to the similarities.

Kris
Time for a breather, I think.

Kris
Sounds good.

...

Kris
Does it still bother you, not having
anyone here from your own world?

Kris
I'm fine.

Fighting for Askr's peace is far more
important than a sentimental thing
like that.

Kris
I'm sure that Heroes from your
platoonwill be summoned here
eventually. It's only a matter of time.

Kris
Maybe you're right. I'd like that.

Anyway, enough rest for now.
Let's get back to it!

Kris
Right.

Julian
If there's anything I can do for you,
Lena, I hope you won't hesitate
to let me know.

Lena
Thank you, Julian. You are as kind
and thoughtful as ever.

Julian
Learned from the best. You're always
thinking of others. Don't think I don't
see you fretting over the new Kris.

Lena
Ah... I just worry about her.

To her, we were so immediately
familiar...but to us, at first, she was
almost a stranger. It had to hurt.

Julian
Yeah, but we got past that pretty
quick. And did you hear her version
of the story of how she met us?

It was exactly what I remember.

She helped us save you in exactly
the same way our Kris did, Lena.
Every detail was identical.

Don't get hung up on appearances.
She's the same person.

Lena
I know that. And I feel the same
kindness from both of them.
Their spirits are indistinguishable.

Julian
Yeah.

So, if they're the same... Let's just
treat them the same.

Lena
You're right, of course.

No matter their gender or appearance,
Kris has always been a Hero worthy
of our complete trust.

Let us pray that she is as blessed
by Askr as Askr is blessed by her.

Kris
Whether the friends I knew come to
this world or not...my goals remain
the same.

I will support Prince Marth. I will
fight for the people of Askr.
I will do what must be done.

Marth
Hello, Kris. I hope I'm not intruding.

Kris
Prince Marth! Of course not.
What can I do for you?

Marth
I need nothing but for you to listen.
There is something I think you need
to hear. And that is...I know you.

Kris
You do? Does that mean...

Are you the Prince Marth
from my world?!

Marth
No, unfortunately I'm not. However...
I don't believe I need to be.

Hair, skin, face, body...none of these
details of physical appearance matter
at all to me.

Kris and I fought and bled together.
Kris and I share an unbreakable bond.
And I know that you are Kris.

Kris
It's...a little strange to hear you say it
like that, but it pleases me to hear.

Marth
Whatever world you come from,
I have faith that you are the same
Kris I've always known.

You'll take up your sword to protect
the people. You'll support me with
wise counsel and a will of steel.

Your spirit is the same, whatever
physical body it may occupy.

Kris
I could not agree more, Prince Marth.

We may be from different worlds,
but we share the same spirit.

Julian
Glad we're all on the same page.

Personally, I'll take as many Krises
as I can get. The more the merrier.

Lena
I feel the same way. I trust in you
completely, Kris.

Please think of us in the same way
as you thought of your companions
in the world you came from.

Kris
Thank you, Prince Marth.
Thank you, everyone.

Marth
Now, I hope I can count on both
of you to lend me your strength
in bringing peace to Askr.

Kris
Upon my sword, Prince Marth,
for you and for Askr, I will always
be prepared to fight.

Kris
Upon my sword, Prince Marth,
I swear the same. I will not rest
until Askr knows peace.

Kris
Sir Jagen!

Jagen
Ah, Kris! Found your way to Askr
at last, I see.

Kris
Indeed I have...if only just. It is
rather overwhelming, to be honest.
I hardly know my way around.

But I'm glad to see you well! I must
say, I'm feeling reassured already.

If there is any guidance you could
provide me, I would eagerly receive it.

Jagen
I can tell at a glance that you don't
need any advice from me, Kris.

You have grown into a fine knight.

No matter what danger befalls you
here, I've no doubt that you will
shield Prince Marth from it.

Kris
Yes, of course. Upon my life.

Jagen
You may have already seen this for
yourself, but the people of Askr are
much like those of Altea.

They are this kingdom's greatest
treasure. And they are constantly
under threat.

Kris
Then let us work to bring peace to
this land just as we did in Altea.

It is a knight's duty to protect the
people, and I am prepared to do it.

Jagen
I know. When the war of Heroes
came to an end, you disappeared to
support Prince Marth in the shadows.

Kris
...

Jagen
I am not the only one in Askr who
remembers. There are other knights
of Altea here.

Even Katarina.

Kris
Katarina... That is a name I did not
expect to hear.

Katarina
Kris! Is it really you?!

Kris
Katarina. It is indeed. After all this
time... It's wonderful to see you.

Katarina
Now that you're here, I can finally
continue my quest for redemption.

I know I can never make up for my
betrayal of you and Prince Marth, but
I do not feel right unless I can try.

For that reason, I have searched for
you constantly since my arrival here
in Askr.

I'd begun to think I'd never succeed.

Kris
Katarina...

Katarina
There is only one thing that continues
to trouble me.

Kris
What is it?

Katarina
Askr's libraries are comprehensive
and vast. They record the exploits of
Heroes from other worlds in detail.

Kris... Your name does not appear
anywhere in their records. Not once.

Kris
Ah.

Katarina
That isn't strange to you?

You accomplished more in the War of
Heroes than almost anyone. Why are
your deeds not documented?

Princess Sharena has a compendium
of all Heroes, and even she could not
explain it to me.

It's as if you never existed.

Kris
I think I may be able to explain this.

It was my wish, after the war, that
my name and deeds not be
venerated by history.

If I am not mentioned in these
records, it is likely because I asked
not to be.

Katarina
Why would you do that?

Kris
I don't want to be called a hero.

It is better if that title is bestowed
on others instead of me. My place
is in the shadows.

Kris: Unknown Hero - A[]

Nameplate Text
Background image: 002_PlainForestInside
Kris Prince Marth, when this war is over,
the people will be in need of a hero.

After so many years of fighting, they
will be restless. The slightest
provocation could lead to chaos.

In a climate like that, it is essential
that they have someone to put on
a pedestal. Someone to be an ideal.

It has to be you, Prince Marth.

Kris
I told him what needed to be done,
then I took my leave from the
world stage.

Katarina
You thought it best to disappear...

Kris
Prince Marth was opposed to the
idea at first. It was against his instinct
for fairness.

For the people's sake, however, he
was persuaded to accept his role
as their savior.

Katarina
Even so...there's something odd
about this.

Askr is reliant on its records for
information about all its Heroes
from other worlds.

If you are absent from them, how was
[Summoner] able to
summon you?

Kris
Interesting question. I don't know.

Maybe I can ask my counterpart.
She might know something that
I don't.

Kris
Nope. Sorry.

Kris
Kris!

Kris
And sorry for eavesdropping too.
Couldn't help myself. I'm still feeling
like the odd one out here.

I've been wondering the same thing,
though. We're from two different
worlds, so it can't be just a fluke.

Katarina
It should be impossible. How did
the both of you get here?

Sharena
Hi! I can answer that!

Katarina
Princess Sharena?

Sharena
The latest version of my compendium
actually does have Kris in it!

Katarina
It does? But how? The last time
I went to the library, the name Kris
wasn't even mentioned in there!

Sharena
That's right, Katarina. And what did
you do when you discovered that?

You came and told me all about it.
You told me all about Kris's life!

Katarina
Of course I did.

Askr needs to know that Prince Marth
had a valuable friend at his side to
support him at every step of the way!

Sharena
Now that you mention it, there was
someone else who felt strongly that
Kris's name deserved to be known.

He made quite a passionate plea
that Kris ought to go down in history
as a true Hero.

Kris
You mean...

Sharena
Yup. Prince Marth.

In your world, he reluctantly agreed
to allow your name to be forgotten
by history.

But he has always felt strongly that
your deeds should be recognized.

Kris
...

Sharena
He respected your wishes because of
the unique situation in Altea.

But this is Askr. The specifics of that
situation don't apply here.

There is absolutely no reason you
can't be known here as the Hero
you truly are.

Kris
So you added our information to
your compendium based on what
Prince Marth and Katarina told you...

Sharena
And a few others. Yup.

Kris
So it's thanks largely to Katarina and
Prince Marth that we were able to be
summoned here.

Sharena
Right you are!

One look at the compendium and
[Summoner] was certain

Kris
And that caused both of us to be
summoned here. Not just him.
So that means...

Kris
We're exactly the same person,
and our spirits are indistinguishable.
There's no other explanation.

Katarina
Princess Sharena... Thank you.

Thank you for helping me and
Kris reunite.

Sharena
Oh, I hardly did a thing. It was thanks
to the unbreakable bond that you,
Kris, and Prince Marth share.

Kris
Prince Marth, Katarina, and the
summoner, [Summoner]...

Kris
Let us swear to do all we can to meet
and exceed your expectations of us.
To make this world a better place.

Kris
Yes. On our honor and our lives,
we will fight for Askr!

Ylgr
Come on, come on... Why won't
you open?

Julian
Princess Ylgr, wasn't it? You look
like you're having some trouble.

Ylgr
Ah! You're one of the new Heroes.

Julian
Julian's the name. Not sure how
heroic I am. Used to be a thief,
in fact. Got better, though.

Ylgr
You used to be a thief? Oh! Does that
mean you could open this chest
for me?

Julian
So a stubborn lock is what's got you
all flustered? Let me see.

Just that little box, huh? Sure, no
trouble at all.

Ylgr
Really? You wouldn't mind? Thanks
so much! I can't find the key, and I
don't know how to pick a lock, so...

Julian
Give it here and I'll take a closer look.
Hmm... Iron exterior. Sturdy little
thing, aren't you...

Still, nothing these trusty old picks
can't handle. Let me just...

Hmm, why doesn't that... Aw, come
on! Hey, you're a lot tougher than
you look!

Ylgr
So... Can you open it?

Julian
I can, but I'll need some time. Can I
borrow it for a while? Promise I won't
run off with it or anything.

Ylgr
Sure, sure.

Julian
I'll take good care of it.

And don't worry. I've never met
a lock that bested me.

Really wish I could crack you open

Gaius
Having trouble with a lock?

Chad
Fancy little chest you got there.
Who'd you lift it from?

Julian
Hey, it's not like that! Princess Ylgr
entrusted me with this.

She lost the key, that's all. I promised
to get it open for her.

Gaius
What's taking so long, then? Just pick
the lock. Here, let me do it.

Huh—that's odd. Must have slipped.

No, there it is again. I see your
problem now. This is a weird one.

Julian
Right?! It looks simple from the outside,
but it's really complicated in there!

I've never seen this kind of lock
before. Maybe it's unique to her
homeland or something.

Either way, I promised to get it open
and that's what I'm gonna do.
Soon as I figure out how...

How's it going? Think you can

It's...surprisingly stubborn.

Julian
Yeah, I was afraid you'd say that.

Niles
Picks aren't the only answer here.

There are plenty of ways we could
force it open.

Julian
Out of the question. Princess Ylgr
trusted me with this. I'm not going
to break it.

Gaius
Seems we're at a loss then.

Niles
I have to admit, such an intricate lock
has made me very curious as to
what's inside.

Julian
I didn't ask. It must be something
precious to her, though...

I'll bring it up while I update her
on our latest failures.

Ylgr
You want to know what's inside?
Sure, I don't mind telling you.

It's a memento of my mother.

My country, Nifl, was...destroyed by
Múspell. When that happened, we ran
and...this chest was all I could carry.

Julian
I'm so sorry.

Ylgr
I'm not lonely here, because I've got
the Order of Heroes, and because
I've got my sister, Fjorm.

But there are lots and lots of great
memories of my mother in here, so
I have a little piece of home too!

So even though it's just a small
thing, I'm really glad I was able
to take it with me.

Julian
All the more reason for me to
get this open for you.

I gave you my word, Princess Ylgr,
and after what you've told me there's
no way I'll give up.

I'll keep my promise, no matter what.

The memories inside this chest are
precious and irreplaceable.

I gave her my word we'd get it open,
and that's what we're gonna do.

So let's put our heads together and
come up with something. There's got
to be a way!

Gaius
When all else fails, it's back to basics.
We need to know the shape of the
lock, so let's take an impression.

Julian
Great idea. If we can impression
a mold, we can make ourselves
a key.

Chad
I've got the kind of clay we'll need
for that in town. I'll run and get it!

Julian
Now we're getting somewhere...

Julian
All right, here's our key. Let's hope
this works...

Yes! It fits! What a relief—we did it!

Chad
Some kind of charm, huh?
Shaped like a star. Pretty.

Gaius
A gift from Princess Ylgr's mother,
I'm guessing.

Julian
We've got what we needed.
Let's bring this to her.

Ylgr
You did it! You got it open! I thought
it was going to be impossible!

Oh, I'm so glad! Thank you so, so,
much!

Julian
That lock was tough, but the smile on
Princess Ylgr's face made it worth
the effort. We did a good thing.

Chad
Thieving skills aren't just for thieving.
They can help folks too.

Julian
A better reason than most to keep
my fingers nimble.

I may have washed my hands of that
life, but I'd hate to lose my touch
over a thing like this.

Fjorm
Excuse me... Forgive the interruption,
but can you spare a moment?

Julian
Princess Fjorm! What is it?

Fjorm
My sister tells me you can open any
lock. If it's not too much trouble,
could you take a look at another one?

This chest won't open no matter
what I do...

Has your injury fully healed?

It has. I am grateful for your

I'm just glad you're feeling better.
Try not to overexert yourself
for a while, all right?

Eir
Have you been back to the village?

Lena
I have, yes. But since I am not skilled
as a fighter, I have been finding other
ways to help.

I've spent most of my time at the
orphanage and in the infirmary.

Let me know if I can be of use.

Lena
I will, Princess Eir. Thank you.

Eir
This may be my imagination, but...

Your face seems...brighter than usual.

Lena
Ah—well, I suppose you could say
I am in a bright mood.

A friend I made through my work at
the infirmary is about to have a baby.
I couldn't be more excited.

New life... Such a blessing...

Yes. This kind of happiness, I have

Unless it is my imagination...your visit

Lena
Ah... You are perceptive. The friend

It...could affect the child.

That is concerning.

Lena
If her condition worsens, they may
have to choose between mother

Heroes are supposed to save people.
I would give anything to help, but...
there is nothing I can do.

I feel so powerless.

She told her husband to make sure

She wants her baby to have a future,

Worse, I'm afraid. Her condition has
put her into labor prematurely.

I'm doing all I can with my healing

Julian
Ah—heads up! There's a black

Wait, is that Princess Eir?

Eir
It is. We've come to lend a hand.

I thought Midori's expertise would be
useful here, so I brought her to you

Midori
Happy to be of service! Show me
to the patient!

Lena
Princess Eir! Midori! We will gladly
accept your aid. This way.

Yeah, she's definitely in a lot of pain.

She is fighting, though. For her child's

I'll start with a sedative to make her

For the rest... I'm going to need fresh

Princess Eir?

We passed over a mountain spring

I could reach it quickly.

That would be greatly appreciated.

I'll start mixing the medicine!

She is stable and recovering!

Thanks to the fresh spring water you

I am...glad.

Me too.

Even if the worst should happen
later...even if the baby retains no
memory of it...

The warmth of a parent leaves an
indelible mark upon a child's heart.

Eir
Perhaps someday I will be able
to pass such warmth on to another...

Lena
Of that I have no doubt. You have
experienced it for yourself now.
It will come naturally.

Eir
I do hope so. I think it would make
me...happy.

Lena
Everyone knows that Heroes have the
power to change history. But history
is more than a series of big events.

It is an amalgam of each and
every life, pieced together.

When you consider it that way,
the weight of every life is equal.

I never want to think of anyone
as expendable.

Eir
We must not only protect life,
but also cultivate it...

Lena
Absolutely.

Princess Eir, let us always ensure
that the lives of others are able
to thrive in our care.

Of course. Thank you, Lena. This will
be...a learning opportunity for me.

Kris
All right. That should be enough
preparations for the moment.

Kris
Hello, Kris! What are you up to
over here?

Kris
Great timing, Kris! I was just about
to go looking for you. I thought we
could help with the cooking.

There seems to be a need for more
food lately, so I'm thinking we can
make a big pot of soup.

Kris
Oh, wonderful. I'd love to help out.

Are you, uh... Are you sure this is
wise, though?

If we're really the same person,
that must mean we share the same
cooking skill...or lack thereof.

Kris
I will admit to some mishaps in the
past, but...it's just soup! How hard
could it be?

Caeda's taught me a few things since
then, and I've had plenty of time to
practice. It'll turn out fine.

Look, I've got a sample batch ready
to taste now. See for yourself.

Kris
I...could do that, sure, but... Oh no.
I know that smell. Trust me, I've
made this exact same soup before.

It's awful, OK? It's like burnt iron.
We can't serve this to people.

Fjorm
What is that aroma? Oh, Kris! And...
Kris! Are you cooking something?

Kris
Princess Fjorm! Indeed we are.
To help support the camp, we're
making our signature soup.

Fjorm
I must say, I am very curious what a
special soup from you two would
taste like. May I?

Kris
Please do! This batch is particularly
good, if I do say so myself.

Fjorm
Thank you very much. Ah, the scent
certainly is...intriguing.

Kris
This is all too familiar...

Fjorm
Here goes...

Oh, it's...

I'm...

Kris
Princess Fjorm! Are you OK?!

Oh, no! I knew I should have
stopped her!

She's dead on her feet, Kris!
We've killed her!

Kris
Relax. She's fine. How is it, Princess
Fjorm? Uh, hello? Can you hear me?
Fjorm
Oh, yes. Sorry to...alarm you. I am,
as it happens...still alive.

Though after tasting that, I admit...
For a moment, I wasn't so sure.
I felt as if my spirit had left my body...

Kris
Sounds about right. Here, have
some water.

Fjorm
Thank you...

Kris
Forgive me, Princess Fjorm. I was
certain I'd done well this time. The
soup had such an appetizing color...

Kris
Right? That's what I said! I always
thought color was the surest way
to judge a soup!

It should be clear enough to you now
that our cooking is...terrible.

But plenty of folks in the castle are
great cooks. Why don't we ask one
of them to instruct us?

Kris
Good idea. Hmm... What about castle
servants? Cooking is a key aspect of
their job, after all.

I run into them around the castle
frequently. Let's go find one!

Felicia
You want to learn to cook? Easy!
Leave it to me—a perfectly capable
and totally competent maid!

Kris
Oh, that's um...great! Did you hear
that, Kris? "Totally competent" is just
what we need!

Kris
Yeah. Anyone with the confidence to
call herself "perfectly capable" has to
be good, right? Thank you, Felicia.

Jakob
What nonsense is this? Felicia, "totally
competent?" Her work is an affront to
the very notion of service.

Felicia
Jakob!

Jakob
Telling someone to learn cooking
from her could be considered a form
of poisoning.

Felicia
Hey! I've never poisoned anyone on
purpose, I'll have you know!

Jakob
Sabotage, then. Cooking with her
would be a fantastic way to learn
to annihilate a kitchen.

Hmm. This gives me a thought...

I'd always considered it advantageous
to keep my culinary secrets to myself,
but perhaps teaching others...

Yes, I am certain that providing this
service would increase the master's
renown in this world!

Very well, I will impart to you my
culinary expertise. Please direct your
appreciation to my employer, Corrin.

Now then, allow me to get a sense of
your current skill. Make for me your
very best dish.

Kris
Understood! Let's get to it, Kris!

Kris
You won't be disappointed!

Jakob
...

Felicia
...

Jakob
Perhaps this is a misunderstanding.
I asked you to prepare food, not...
whatever this is. Chopped laundry?

Kris
It's a stew! We made a stew.

Kris
That's right. Our signature stew.

Felicia
Even I know that stew's supposed to
have water in it! This is... Yep, this is
rock solid!

This stew is even more disgusting
than mine. I didn't think that
was possible!

Jakob
The only impossibility here is one of
improvement. I'm afraid you are
beyond my help.

Kris
No! Don't say that!

Jakob
That is not to say it is a lost cause.
In fact, I know someone who may
be able to help you.

Yes... Surely even this devastating
culinary weakness is not beyond
his ability to correct...

Jakob suggested you might be able

I'm certainly willing to try. Why don't

Not much, really. Just hoping that it
tastes good, I guess.

Kris
Yeah. Or not terrible, at least.

Hmm. For me, what's even more
important than taste is how happy
people will be when they're eating it.

I look forward to people's pleased
reactions. Their smiling faces.
That's what motivates me.

I hadn't consider that...

Kris
Me either...

Oscar
No one is born a good cook—least of
all me. I was awful at it...until I had to
feed two younger brothers.

Pleasing them was difficult, but all
the hard work was worth it to me.

Kris
That makes a lot of sense.

Oscar
Everyone wants the food they make
to taste delicious, but a great cook
aspires to more than that.

Imagine the bigger picture. Think of
the people you care about seated at
the table, enjoying what you've made.

Kris
That's a beautiful image. I'd never
thought to envision it before.

Once your heart is in the right place,
skill is sure to follow.
