Ch.10: Turning Traitor

北米版ファイアーエムブレム聖魔の光石「the Sacred Stones」の章会話(エフラム編10章:不忠の徒)。

ワールドマップ

A former lance instructor to Ephraim,▼
Grado's General Duessel often came to Renais
as an emissary of his empire.▼
Despite their stations, the two men share
similar dispositions and a warm relationship.▼
Why has Grado Started this war?▼
What is the miasma of evil emanating
from the country?▼
Ephraim believes that Duessel can answer
these questions.▼
It is this belief that propels Ephraim
forward into Grado territory.▼

オープニング

Messanger:
Please wait, Prince Ephraim.
I have a message from Frelia.▼
There's been an uprising in Carcino.▼
Pablo is leading a force of renegade
Grado supports in rebellion.▼
Ephraim:
In Carcino...▼
Any word of Eirika?
Is my sister safe?▼
Messanger:
The last word we received had Princess
Eirika heading to assist Prince Innes.▼
We've not heard from her since.▼
Ephraim:
...Blast.▼
I sent Eirika to Rausten thinking
it would be the safest mission.▼
If I could, I'd pull out of here
now and go look for her but...▼
Seth:
Prince Ephraim.▼
Ephraim:
I know, I know. I mustn't let me
emotions dictate my actions.▼
If Carcino has allied itself with Grado,
then defeating Grado is out best bet.▼
We proceed as planned. Tell them that.▼
Seth:
Understood.▼
Ephraim:
Be careful, Eirika.▼
Ephraim:
...What?!▼
Was that an earthquake?▼
I think it's passed.▼
Seth:
Prince Ephraim.▼
Ephraim:
I'm fine. There's nothing to worry about.▼
I was surprised, that's all. You're not
shaken in the slightest, are you?▼
Seth:
Actually, it supeised me as well.▼
I've heard that tremors such as those
were commonplace in Grado.▼
Apparently, they are usually weak and
cause little, if any, damage.▼
Ephraim:
Now that you mention is, I remember a
while back, when I was first in Grado.▼
Eirika and I were startled by a
tremor just like that one.▼
Lyon said he had grown used to them,
and he just laughed.▼
Seth:
......▼
Ephraim:
We don't have any time to tend
to injuries just now.▼
We must press forward. We must
see the capital.▼
Duessel:
I do not understand...▼
Why this course of action?
What is the emperor thinking...▼
Selena (Offscreen):
General Duessel.▼
Duessel:
...Is that you, Selena?▼
Are you to be assisting
me in this...duty?▼
Selena:
Yes...▼
Frelia's army will be coming
soon from the north.▼
We're just waiting for the
order to engage them.▼
Duessel:
Hm... Prince Ephraim leads
the enemy forces, doesn't he?▼
Selena:
That is correct.
Prince Ephraim of Renais.▼
Duessel:
Bah...▼
Selena:
Renais is our enemy.▼
General, please give the order to attack.▼
Duessel:
No. Order all units to hold.
Do not initiate the attack.▼
I want to speak with Ephraim first.▼
Selena:
......▼
So it's true.▼
You plan to betray the empire and
ally yourself with the enemy.▼
Duessel:
What?!▼
Selena:
General Duessel, you stand accused
of treason of the highest order.▼
Lay down your weapons, and follow
my commands.▼
If you fail to do so, if you resist in
any way, I will execute you on the spot.▼
Duessel:
This is nonsense!▼
Who is behind this madness!▼
Selena:
These are His Majesty's orders.▼
The emperor has anticipated
your treachery.▼
Prepare yourself.▼
Duessel:
Impossible... His Majesty?▼
Selena:
Cormag, you and I will
bring that traitor down.▼
Go around and fort to the southeast
and drive into them from the sea.▼
Cormag:
We're fighting General Duessel?▼
But he's one of the cornerstones
of the empire. How could--▼
He's been like a father to you
and to my brother.▼
Do you truly mean to kill him?▼
Selena:
......▼
If that is what my emperor commands,
then yes. Without hesitation.▼
Cormag, if you are a true knight
of Grado, you will do the same.▼
Cormag:
......▼
Seth:
Prince Ephraim, the Imperial
Grado army is before us.▼
Ephraim:
I know, but something's odd.▼
They're chasing someone down.
Is that a deserter?▼
Wait!
That's... Duessel?!▼
Seth:
Prince Ephraim, your orders.▼
Ephraim:
We rescue Duessel!
Ride!!▼

Valter:
What's this? They've only just begun?
What a disappointment.▼
I so wanted to witness the comedy of two
generals hacking away at each other.▼
Selena:
Valter...
What do you want?▼
Valter:
Ah, Selena. You're to return to the
capital immediately.▼
Duessel is no longer your concern.▼
His majesty has declared you untrustworthy.
I've been sent to relieve you of command.▼
Selena:
What?▼
Valter:
You've proven yourself incapable of dealing
with a single old man...▼
I tell you, having to clean up your mess
makes things difficult for me, Selena.▼
Now then, Beran.▼
Beran:
Yes, sir.▼
Valter:
I'm leaving.▼
I can't leave poor Eirika sad
and lonely in Carcino.▼
You're in command here for the
duration of this conflict.▼
Beran:
I'll take care of things.▼
Selena:
What do you think you're doing?!▼
I am here at His Majesty's bidding,
and...▼
Valter:
Did you not hear me? His Majesty's
bidding has CHANGED.▼
You, Selena, are not to be trusted.
These are His Majesty's words.▼
You share the same sentiments as Duessel.
You could turn traitor, just as he has.▼
You should feel honored. He could have
ordered me to kill you where you stand.▼
Selena:
Th-that's absurd!▼
His Majesty, he...▼
He knows I am trustworthy.▼
Valter:
Then return to the capital
and sort it out.▼
Go and ask your beloved master
whether I speak the truth.▼
Selena:
I...▼
Valter:
What are you going to do, Selena?▼
Selena:
I will return to the capital.▼
I know better then to trust your word.
I will speak with the emperor myself.▼
valter:
Heh heh... Stupid woman.▼
If Grado wins too easily,
there'll be no more bloodshed.▼
We must do what we can
to extend the fun...▼
I believe it's time for me to
return to my darling Eirika.▼
It wouldn't do for Glen to
arrive before me, would it?▼
Take care of things here before
I return to you. Understood?▼
Beran:
Of course.▼

Cormag:
Tell me, brother, what should I do?▼

PLAYER PHASE3終了時

Soldier:
Commander Cormag!▼
Cormag:
I know what I must do.▼
I'm a sworn knight of Grado,
and I have a duty to fulfill.▼
Let's start by putting an end
to that Frelian army. Move out!▼

エフラム→デュッセル

Ephraim:
Duessel!▼
Duessel:
Is that you, Prince Ephraim?▼
Ephraim:
Why are those Grado men after you?
What's going on?▼
Wait, we can talk later. Let's get
you to safety first.▼
Come with us, Duessel.▼
Duessel:
......▼
Ephraim:
Duessel!▼
Duessel:
I am General Duessel, the Obsidian,
of the Imperial Three...▼
This name and my service to His Majesty
have been my life's blood.▼
As of this moment it is all gone.
I've no reason to continue...▼
Ephraim:
Duessel...▼
Enough of this rubbish!▼
You are my mentor! I will
not let you die!▼
Duessel:
...Prince Ephraim.▼
Ephraim:
I know about the
emperor's madness.▼
How will your death serve
Grado? Who will it help?▼
What of your country? Its
people? Its future?!▼
Duessel:
......▼
Ephraim:
You will live, Duessel.▼
As a traitor...
In disgrace...▼
I know for a man such as you
this is more agonizing then death.▼
But you will live nonetheless. You
will live for something more important.▼
Duessel:
......▼
I understand.▼
This old fool's
life is yours.▼

デュッセル→クーガー

Duessel:
Is that you, Cormag?▼
Cormag:
Sir Duessel...▼
You have abandoned you country and
your lord. I must take your life.▼
Duessel:
I know. I'm ready now.▼
I have no duty anymore. But you, Cormag.
You're a soldier of the empire.▼
Follow your orders and fulfill your
mission. I'm ready.▼
Cormag:
......▼
Duessel:
Cormag!▼
Cormag:
To be honesty, I'm confused.▼
Must you truly die? Is your
crime really deserving of death?▼
I know my brother could have
settled this, but...▼
I've come here to stop you, and
yet I find that I cannot.▼
Duessel:
......▼
Cormag:
You see, I couldn't believe you
would ever truly turn traitor.▼
And now I stand here, looking at
you, Duessel of the Imperial Three.▼
And you do not have the eyes of
a traitor.▼
Duessel:
......▼
Cormag:
No. I cannot turn my lance on
you, the empire's faithful son.▼
General Duessel...▼
Until this matter is sorted, you
travel under my protection.▼
Duessel:
Cormag...▼
Forgive me...▼

ターナ→クーガー

Tana:
Wait.▼
Please stop fighting.▼
I'm sure we can reach an
agreement if we just talk.▼
Cormag:
You are...?▼
Tana:
My name is Tana. You're from
Grado, aren't you?▼
Why are you fighting
against General Duessel?▼
Cormag:
That's none of you--▼
Tana:
Do you hate him?▼
Cormag:
...Do I hate him? This isn't some petty
schoolyard squabble, girl.▼
I'm a soldier of the empire, and
I have my orders.▼
I've been sent to punish a traitor,
and that's what I aim to do.▼
Tana:
Are you telling me that
General Duessel's a traitor?▼
Don't you know him? Do you
think that's really true?▼
Cormag:
What I think isn't at question.
Faith does not dictate my actions.▼
I have my orders.▼
Tana:
Ephraim trusts your General Duessel.
He's given him the benefit of the doubt.▼
Have you chosen not to believe the
reasons for his action?▼
Cormag:
Get out of my way?▼
I'll waste no more time
with this duel of words!▼
Tana:
Wait!
Please...▼
Protect General Duessel.▼
It would be tragic if he died
before his motives became clear.▼
Cormag:
...Move, please.▼
If you won't get out of the way,
I'll have to move you by force.▼
Tana:
Very well. If you must.▼
But in exchange, I'm asking you
to believe General Duessel.▼
Cormag:
......▼
...You're an odd bird.▼
To think I'd lose a fight not to a
man's sword but to a woman's words...▼
Tana:
What?▼
Cormag:
You win.▼
I will protect General Duessel.▼
But I plan or sorting this whole
mess out with the General himself.▼
Tana:
Do you mean that?▼
Cormag:
I don't know if this is the
right think to do or not.▼
But I think this is what my
brother would have done.▼

Old man:
This area of the ocean is often
blanketed in a thick fog.▼
I toiled under it for many
hard years when I was still sailing.▼
We always made sure we had torches
and the like ready...▼
Oh, yes...
And there's this.▼
This torch staff shines just as bright
as any normal torch.▼
Of course, if nobody knows you can use
it, it's just so much extra baggage.▼
Will you take it?▼
Oh, go ahead.▼
I'm planning on resting my old bones
here for good. My sailing days are done.▼

She's really beautiful and
really, really strong.▼

A strange man passed through here

He said something about looking

I asked if she was his girl, but

I hope he's found her by now.▼

Duessel:
Cormang...▼
So, you've been sent to
bring me in as well?▼
Cormang:

Duessel:
There's no point in hesitating.
You must stop me.▼
After all those are His
Majesty's orders.▼

Beran:
Grr... They're held on for
too long.▼
If this continues, General
Valter will have me--▼
...Prepare a ship. We
must flee. Quickly!▼
Soldier:
B-but General Valter...
He'll be so angry...▼
Beran:
We're doomed either way.▼
General Valter will never
forgive our failure here...▼
And if we stay, we'll be devoured
like those other fools...▼
Our best bet is to give up
and escape with our lives.▼
Soldier:
Commander Beran! Wait!▼
Seth:
Prince Ephraim. The remaining
enemy troops have fled.▼
Ephraim:
I see. And what of Duessel?
Is he unharmed?▼
Seth:
Yes. This way.▼
Duessel:
Prince Ephraim...▼
You've grown to be quite
the impressive commander.▼
I remember what a stubborn young
lad you were when I taught you.▼
Ephraim:
Any skill I have, I owe
to you, Duessel.▼
I'm curious, why are you being
pursued by your own troops?▼
Duessel:
......▼
Ephraim:
Speak to me, Duessel.▼
I want to put an end to this war.▼
I'm sure you feel the same way.▼
Duessel:
......▼
...As you know, the emperor
was once a man of compassion.▼
He loathed war, and he worked to
build peace across all nations.▼
Then...one day that all changed.▼
Ephraim:
......▼
But why? Why did he change?
What happened?▼
Duessel:
I wish I knew.▼
But if you're looking for a
likely cause, I have one.▼
This all seems to have begun
when Prince Lyon and the mages▼
created a strange gemstone they
referred to as the Dark Stone.▼
Ephraim:
The Dark Stone?▼
Duessel:
That's what the clerics and the prince
called it, at any rate.▼
Now, I'm just a soldier. I don't know
anything about these magic things.▼
But they said the Dark Stone is more
powerful even than the Sacred Stones.▼
Ephraim:
And the Sacred Stones had the power
to defeat the Demon King.▼
If the Dark Stone is stronger then
they are...▼
Myrrh:
...Ephraim.▼
Ephraim:
What is it, Myrrh?▼
Myrrh:
The wave of evil I felt
surging from the capital...▼
It hungers... It consumes.
It envelops and transforms.▼
This power can tarnish the purest
of souls with its corruption.▼
Ephraim:
Are you saying this Dark Stone is
responsible for this change in Vigarde?▼
The timing fits, doesn't it? The
stone is created, and then--▼
Duessel, where is the Dark Stone now?▼
Duessel:
It's in the capital, with Prince Lyon.▼
He's been carrying it with him ever
since the day it was created.▼
Ephraim:
Understood. Duessel, I'm going
to the capital.▼
I must talk to Lyon. Maybe we
can restore the emperor together.▼
Duessel:
...I'm going with you.▼
Ephraim:
But we'll be fighting Grado's
army--your own men.▼
Duessel:
I appreciate your concern, but I've
already been branded a traitor.▼
Prince Ephraim, if you mean to
save my lord the emperor...▼
If you hope to restore him to
his former self...▼
then I will pledge my loyalty
to you until your cause is won.▼

Soldier:
General Duessel!▼
Duessel:
Men, I owe each of you
an apology.▼
You've served me well,
and I have betrayed you.▼
Soldier:
You speak nonsense, General!▼
We are your men, no matter
what happens!▼
If you must leave Grado to
fight with Frelia's men,▼
then our place is by your side.
Your road is our road!▼
Duessel:
My brave men...▼
Sniff...
Bah, I'm getting old.▼
I'm a sentimental old fool.▼
Soldier:
We ask to be allowed to
join the Frelian army.▼
Prince Ephraim has many soldiers.
He doesn't need us with him.▼
Please, send is older soldiers
off to fight with Frelia.▼
And my the gods of war smile
upon you, General Duessel.▼
(Got a Knight's Crest)
Seth:
Prince Ephraim, we must now
take to the seas.▼
The Frelian army is readying
a ship for us now.▼
We have some time to rest
until it's ready to set sail.▼
Ephraim:
Right. We'll take a break,
then. Tell the men.▼
The road ahead is bound
to be a rough one.▼
L'Arachel:
Well, hello there!▼
Tell me, are you all
waiting to board a ship?▼
Ephraim:
Er, yes, we are...▼
L'Arachel:
I recommend that you abandon
your plans, my friends.▼
The locals are too frightened
to set sail upon these seas.▼
Ephraim:
Is there a storm coming in?▼
L'Arachel:
No, no storm--demons.▼
Some sort of phantom ship
commands these seas now.▼
Ephraim:
A phantom ship?▼
L'Arachel:
Yes. But you needn't worry
for long, my friends.▼
I plan on purging the seas
of that pesky ghost ship.▼
Rennac:
Oh, no... Here we go again.▼
Dozla:
Gwah ha ha!
Well said, Princess L'Arachel!▼
L'Arachel:
I, L'Arachel, am destined to become
the protect of the seas!▼
Fare thee well, strangers.
Come, Dozla, we must find a ship.▼
Dozla:
Gwah ha ha! Sounds fun!
Come on, Rennac!▼
Rennac:
Honestly, L'Arachel, do you even
think before you set these plans?▼
Oh, please... Someone end
my misery!▼
Ephraim:
...What was that all about?▼
Seth:
Prince Ephraim, our
ship has arrived.▼
Let us prepare to board.
...Something troubling you?▼
Ephraim:
No... It's nothing.▼
All right. Here we go!▼
