Chapter 7: Shades of Evil

北米版ファイアーエムブレム蒼炎の軌跡「Path of Radiance」の章会話(第7章 漆黒の魔手)。

オープニング

Ike
They're not here either...▼
Soren
Ike, pursuing them any father may be dangerous. I think it would be best if we returned to Gallia for now.▼ It's possible the commander may have followed another road into Gallia. It's something we should consider.▼
Ike
...You're right. Getting killed looking for them would waste everything they accomplished by breaking away.▼ I guess all we can do is trust that they're well and withdraw.▼
Titania
Ike, there's a fort over there. Just now, for a moment only... I thought I saw someone. Shall we investigate?▼
Ike
What? Really? Yes, let's go take a look.▼
Soren
It seems as though this place has been abandoned for a long time.▼
Titania
There's no one here... Hm. I could've sworn I saw a silhouette, but... I guess it was a trick of the light.▼
Ike
Let's take a quick look around. If we don't find anything here, we'll head back to Gallia.▼
Titania
Very well...▼
Soldier
Here they are! I've found the Crimean mercenaries!▼ Surround them!▼
Ike
Curses! Daein troops!▼

Mia:
Uh-oh. Daein soldiers here, too.▼ Now, where's that exit... Hm? What's that sound? Someone...fighting?▼

ENEMY PHASE2終了直後

Petrine
Ha ha ha... Found you at last. You provided more entertainment than I thought you would.▼
Ike
Who are you?▼
Petrine
Me? I am General Petrine, and my arrival marks your doom.▼ Lament your fortune, dear children, for all hope is lost. You will not leave this place alive.▼
Soren
Petrine... Of the Four Riders?▼
Ike
Do you know her, Soren?▼
Soren
She may be one of the four generals who are King Daein's most trusted confidants.▼ She is said to wield a flame lance of terrible arcane might.▼
Petrine
Ha ha ha... You've heard of me? Why, I'm flattered. I'll try to make this easy on all of you.▼ Give me the princess, and do it now.▼ If I roast the girl along with you curs, I won't be able to present her head to His Majesty.▼
Ike
Sorry to tell you this, but the princess isn't here. She's been in Gallia for quite some time now.▼
Petrine
What...nonsense is that? Do you expect me to believe you?▼ There's no way mercenary scum like you could get past my troops!▼
Unknown
They say that blind arrogance sows the field of its own destruction.▼ Something tells me they were talking about you.▼
Petrine
Who--?▼
Ike
Father!▼
Greil
What're you doing back here, you dumb pup?▼
Ike
We got the princess safely into Gallia.▼ When you didn't rejoin us, we decided to look for you. The mission wouldn't be complete until you returned.▼
Greil
...What am I to do with you?▼ Still, you did well. Good work, Ike.▼
Petrine
Ha! Ignoring me proves you've got more guts than common sense.▼ So you're the commander, eh? Hmph! And I was waiting for some great hero. You're just another sellsword.▼
Greil
Am I?▼
Petrine
Ha ha. You know, I think I'll keep you!▼ His Majesty, well... Let's just say he enjoys strong men. Yes, I do think you'll make a grand souvenir.▼ You don't have to come along quietly, but I must have you alive. Dead men have no value, after all.▼
Greil
...So the rumors of mad King Ashanrd's twisted games are true, are they?▼
Gatrie
Shinon... What are these "twisted games" the boss is talking about?▼
Shinon
There's rumor that King Daein gathers strong men from around the continent and sets them to fight one another.▼ Those who live, regardless of their birth, are given influential positions. Don't know if it's true, though.▼
Gatrie
Oh... So that weird dame's got her eye on the boss, now, does she?▼
Greil
Shinon! Gatrie! I'll distract the woman.▼ You two grab Ike and the others and get out of here now!▼
Shinon
Got it!▼
Gatrie
But, Commander! We can't leave you here on your own!▼
Shinon
Idiot! That woman's no threat to the commander. All right? Come on! Let's go!▼
Greil
Move it! We'll regroup in Gallia!▼
Petrine
You'll not escape me. Not you or your little friends. You're far too tasty a treat to pass up.▼
Greil
You said your name was Petrine, is that right? Listen up. This place is nowhere near big enough.▼ There's not enough room for a true contest between the two of us. I'm going elsewhere. You coming?▼
Petrine
Do you actually think I'm going to fall for such a simple ruse?▼
Greil
You and I, we've got more power than the average person. We don't come across a chance like this too often.▼ I'd like to flex my muscles without any distractions getting in the way. You?▼
Petrine
Ha ha... You really do know how to sweet talk a girl, don't you? All right, I'm coming.▼
Greil
Over here.▼
Petrine
All right, men. I'm leaving you in charge here.▼ Don't let even one of these Crimean vermin escape!▼ Understood? I want them exterminated by the time I return.▼
Ike
We join up with Shinon, and we get out of here!▼ Come on, don't fall behind!▼

話す

アイク⇔ワユ

Mia
Your name wouldn't happen to be Ike, would it?▼
Ike
It is, but...who are you?▼
Mia
I'm Mia. I'm a mercenary, hired by Crimea to bolster the army's numbers.▼
Ike
An army mercenary, huh? So, uh, what are you doing here?▼
Mia
I got careless and was captured. They were about to send me to a prison camp when Greil saved me.▼
Ike
You've seen my father? Where?▼
Mia
Just a little bit north of here. Not too far away, though.▼
Ike
Really? So he's safe...▼
Mia
Tell me, who exactly are you guys?▼
Ike
We're the Greil Mercenaries. As you can see, we're fighting against Daein.▼
Mia
Huh... You're taking on a whole Daein battalion with these numbers? Nice. That settles it then!▼
Ike
Settles what?▼
Mia
This battle. I'm coming in on your side. You don't mind, do you?▼
Ike
It's fine with me, but... I don't know if you'll get paid just because I let you fight.▼
Mia
We'll worry about the details later! Great, so that's all taken care of. What next, boss man?▼

アイク⇔シノン

Ike
Well met, Shinon. Are you unharmed?▼
Shinon
Do I look injured? I'm as fit as ever. You must be disappointed Daein hasn't stuck me full of holes yet.▼
Ike
...▼
Shinon
Guess it's time to tighten our belts and move on.▼ Now that I'm gonna be dragging your worthless carcass around again, I'll have to work twice as hard.▼

アイク⇔ガトリー

Ike
Gatrie!▼
Gatrie
Hey, is that you, Ike? I heard you got the princess to Gallia. Nice work! You're quite the hero.▼ ...But wait! So what in blazes are you doing back here?▼
Ike
You'll think it foolish, but I was worried about all of you.▼
Gatrie
Aww... You're going to make me cry, you silly pup!▼ All right...sniff... Get it together, Gatrie. Tonight, you and I will share a meal and sing a song or two!▼

戦闘

バルマ初戦時

アイク

Ike
Whoa! So you're a mage, are you?▼
Balmer
I am, vermin, and will see you burn to cinders!▼

その他

Balmer:
Hmph, You wretches... You're not worthy of General Petrine's attention.▼ I will roast your bones and present them to her as trophy!▼

バルマ撃破時

Balmer:
Urgg... Ahh...

クリア後

Ike:
I have to find my father. Where did he go?▼
Ike
Titania! Is my father...▼
Titania
Don't worry. Commander Greil's the better fighter. He'll be fine.▼
Petrine
Dog's breath! Who are you, man? You look like a common sellsword, but you fight like a demon!▼
Greil
What's wrong? Ready to surrender?▼
Petrine
And admit defeat? Me? Don't be absurd...▼
Soldier
Here they are! Over here!▼
Ike
Blast. Enemy reinforcements!▼ Father! Let's get out of here! There are too many--▼
Greil
...Looks like I've got no choice.▼
Petrine
Ha ha ha ha... So now, the tide has turned, hasn't it?? All troops, attack! Kill them! Kill them all!▼
Greil
Hm... Looks like our luck's run out.▼
Ike
Father!▼
Greil
You have to survive this, Ike.▼ I'm not going to lose you, not in this place. Are you ready?▼
Ike
Yes, Commander!▼
Petrine
You've nowhere to run. Curse whatever gods you hold, for they have abandoned you!▼
Ike
What was that?▼
Soldier
B-b-beasts! Gallian beast soldiers!▼
Soldier
R-r-run! We're going to be torn to shreds!▼
Petrine
Stand your ground, all of you! Don't panic!▼ I will personally slaughter the first man to turn his back on the enemy!▼
Soldier
Noooo!▼ (The soldiers run off)
Petrine
Pfeh. Worthless cowards, one and all.▼
Soldier
B-b-beasts!▼
Ranulf
Attention, Daein soldiers! Leave this place at once!▼ If you do not comply immediately, you will face Gallia's full strength!▼
Petrine
Threaten me all you like. It's not going to frighten me off.▼ If I leave, His Majesty will have me executed. I'd rather die here in battle, with my honor intact.▼
Black Knight
Withdraw, General Petrine.▼
Petrine
The Black Knight...▼
Black Knight
As for your king, you have nothing to fear. I'll explain things to him. Take your men and go.▼
Petrine
Tsk!▼ All troops, fall back!▼
Black Knight
...▼
Greil
Hm?▼
Ike
He's staring at you, isn't he, Father?▼
Greil
Yeah. He is.▼
Ranulf
Hey! Are you planning on taking us all on by yourself?▼
Black Knight
...▼
Greil
...▼
Ike
Father?▼
Mist
Father! Brother!▼
Ike
Mist!▼
Elincia
Master Greil, my lord Ike... I am pleased you are well.▼
Ike
Princess Elincia... Why did you return here?▼
Ranulf
The princess came and requested Gallian aid for your mercenary company.▼ That is what brings us here.▼
Ike
Are you one of Gallia's sub-humans?▼
Ranulf
Sub-human? Ha! What arrogance it takes to coin such a name!▼ You think yourselves the only ones worthy of the name "human", and so we laguz must be beneath you?▼ And thus you call us "sub-human". We are less then human to you, is that it?▼
Ike
I'm sorry... I don't know any other name for you. If I have offended you, I apologize.▼ What should I call you? Laguz? Would that be more appropriate?▼
Ranulf
Huh? You show manners? How odd. I like that.▼ Now, you are... Who, exactly?▼
Ike
My name is Ike. Ike of the Greil Mercenaries.▼
Ranulf
I'm Ranulf, a warrior of Gallia.▼ We did not know what to think when this group of beorc came tramping through Gallian fields...▼ Imagine our surprise to learn that one of them is Princess Elincia.▼ Now, that was a shock. Two days ago, Daein proclaimed their conquest. We thought Crimea's royals had all been killed.▼
Ike
Conquest? They've laid claim to Crimea? So that means Crimea must be...▼
Elincia
I...also heard this news from my lord Ranulf...▼ After...after I fled the capital... My lord uncle Renning... He...▼ I...I am...all alone.▼
Ike
Princess Elincia...▼
Ranulf
This is why our king ordered extra patrols along the nation's border.▼ It wasn't mere chance that brought my warriors here to offer you support.▼
Ike
I see...▼
Ranulf
First of all, I must present Princess Elincia to the king.▼ As for the rest of your men, Ike, I must get orders from my superiors. Until then you may rest at an old castle inside Gallia.▼ Sorry, but I cannot bring so large a group of foreigners to the palace without warning.▼
Ike
I understand. Commander, that's not going to be a problem, is it?▼
Greil
...▼
Ike
Commander?▼
Greil
Hm? What was that?▼
Ike
What's wrong? You're not paying attention. It's not like you.▼
Greil
I was thinking about something. So, what's been decided?▼
Ike
Princess Elincia is going on to the palace with Ranulf.▼ We're going into Gallia and setting up camp at an old castle. Which way to this castle, Ranulf?▼
Ranulf
I shall prepare a guide to take you.▼ One of you! Quickly!▼
Greil
No, don't go to the trouble. If it's nearby, we cross the river on the border and head west. It's Gebal Castle, right?▼ You go ahead. Get the princess to King Caineghis as fast as you can.▼
Ranulf
...Understood. What thoughtful guests you are. If you'll excuse me.▼ Oh, and if it's not overly presumptuous, I'll have food delivered to you later.▼
Greil
We'd appreciate it. The road has been hard, and we had little time to pack more than salted meat and hard biscuits.▼
Ranulf
Then we shall provide! Princess Elincia, shall we leave?▼
Elincia
Farewell, everyone... Until later. I will see you soon, won't I?▼
Greil
Mm.▼
Ike
Take care.▼
Ike
Father!▼
Greil
Ike? What are you doing still awake?▼
Ike
I couldn't sleep, so I was lying there staring outside, and I saw you leave the castle.▼ Where are you going at this hour?▼
Greil
It's nothing to do with you, boy. Go back inside and get to sleep.▼
Ike
Will you stop treating me like a child? I'll do as I please, got it?▼
Greil
Hmph. You always were a stubborn pup. What say we take a walk and chat a bit?▼
Ike
...Yeah.▼
Greil
Tell me, Ike, are you getting used to the ins and outs of the mercenary life? The way we approach combat?▼
Ike
I'm definitely a better fighter. But I don't understand... Why would you put a recruit like me in charge?▼
Greil
What is it with all the complaining? You have a problem with authority?▼
Ike
Just give me a straight answer.▼ I've only just started. I'm barely able to handle my own duties around here.▼ I shouldn't be in charge of anyone.▼
Greil
You can learn it all at once. It'll all fall into place as soon as you start to get some experience.▼
Ike
It's just strange is all... A while ago, you never would have said or done anything like this.▼
Greil
...▼
Ike
Is something wrong, Father? Why are you in such a rush?▼
Greil
...▼ Ike... Do you remember anything at all about your mother?▼
Ike
What? Where did that come from?▼
Greil
Just answer the question.▼
Ike
Let's see... She was kind, I...think...▼ I don't really remember. And you've never said much about her either.▼
Greil
Hm. Is that so...▼
Ike
Father? What is it?▼
Greil
We're done. Leave me and go back to the castle.▼
Ike
What? Just like that?▼
Greil
You heard me. That's a direct order! Return to the castle immediately!▼
Ike
I... Fine...▼
Greil
...▼
Black Knight
...Unbelievable. Is this truly what has become of my teacher?▼
Ike
Father! Father!!▼
Greil
I...Ike...▼
Ike
Hold on!▼
Black Knight
Now then, will you give me what I came for?▼
Greil
I...don't...have it...... ...I threw...it away...▼
Black Knight
Ha. You, who knows better than any what it truly is, threw it away?▼ Surely you can craft a more plausible lie. You're not even trying anymore.▼
Greil
I'm done talking to you.▼
Black Knight
So there's no way for me to get my answers, is that it?▼ The dead keep their secrets, or so it is said. But you, however... You are not dead yet.▼ I wonder... Will watching your son's face grow pale, his eyes grow dim as his life bleeds away...▼ And then your daughter... Oh, the horrors I will visit upon her. Will that loosen your tongue, perhaps?▼ I suppose we will simply have to see.▼
Ike
What?▼
Greil
No! Ike!!!▼
Ike
...Urk...▼
Greil
Ike!!!▼
Black Knight
I won't check my hand again.▼ Give me what I am after. If you offer no more resistance, I will leave your child alive.▼
Greil
S-stop... You will not touch my son!▼
Black Knight
...What is this? The king of beasts? How bothersome. Do I retreat?▼ Eh?▼
Ike
You're not going anywhere.▼
Black Knight
Tell me, is the son as stupid as the father?▼
Greil
...Nng... Ahh...▼
Ike
Father!▼
Greil
Ike, stop. There's no way you can win.▼
Ike
But...▼
Greil
Ike!▼
Black Knight
You will not continue? Then I will finish...▼
Black Knight
...So close.▼ Now is not the time for me to deal with him. Hmph. You get to keep your head today, boy.▼
Greil
Blast.▼
Greil
So willful. So arrogant...▼ Of course... The one who... made him that way... was...m-me...▼
Ike
...Father?▼ Father! Hold on!▼ I can't do anything here... I've... I've got to get you back to the castle!▼
Ike
...Nngh...▼
Greil
I-Ike...▼
Ike
Father? You're awake!▼
Greil
I... There's something I need to tell you.▼
Ike
Tell me later. Right now, I'm getting you back to the castle.▼
Greil
Forget about revenge... Leave that knight alone... Stay away...▼
Ike
What? Father?▼
Greil
Stay with the king of Gallia... Live here. Live in peace...▼
Ike
Father, stop talking. You're wasting your strength. Please...▼
Greil
I need you to take care of everything...▼ The company... Mist...▼
Ike
Wait... You mustn't say such things!▼ It'll be light soon. You'll be fine...▼
Ike
A little longer... Stay a little longer...▼
