Ch.11: Creeping Darkness

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(エイリーク編11章:這いうねる闇)。

ワールドマップ

The Caer Pelyn Range...▼
According to Ewan, a little-known passage
to Jehanna lies there,▼
hidden within its cracked red bedrock and
knife-edged peaks.▼
To avoid Carcino and combat, Eirika's
troops take the mountain path.▼
They begin climbing higher and higher toward
Caer Pelyn.▼
Unbeknownst to the group, hordes of dark
creatures now roam the peaks.▼

オープニング

Ewan:
We're almost there!
Come on!▼
My teacher lives just
up ahead.▼
Eirika:
Slow down, Ewan.
Let's stick together.▼
Innes:
...This fog's getting thick.▼
I don't expect any more surprise
attacks, but that doesn't mean we--▼
Ewan:
Quick worrying, mister!▼
You're gonna get left behind.▼
Innes:
...Don't speak to me, boy.
I don't tolerate insolence.▼
Eirika:
Innes, he's only a child. There's
no reason to be so rude.▼
He is helping us after all.▼
Ewan:
That's right. Without me, you'd
never get where you're going.▼
So come on already!▼
Innes:
Stop.▼
Don't take another step.▼
Ewan:
Huh?▼
That's gonna make it awfully
hard to get where we need to go.▼
Innes:
...What do you know about that fort?▼
It looks like it's been abandoned
for some time. Is anyone using it?▼
Ewan:
Nope. It's really run-down.
Nobody ever goes there.▼
It's been empty for ages. I've
been inside, so I know.▼
Innes:
Is that right? Then what's that sound,
and where is it coming from?▼
Ewan:
Huh? What sound?▼
Hey, you're right... I do
hear a weird noise.▼
You could hear that? Neat!
You've got really good hearing.▼
I wonder what it is...▼
Eirika:
There it is again.
Prince, is this...▼
Innes:
Eirika.▼
Eirika:
Yes?▼
Innes:
Get your troops ready. Tell them
to prepare for battle...▼
We've been spotted.
Monsters are coming.▼

Tethys:
Ewan, it's dangerous here.
Get behind me.▼

→選択・1-B ジストかテティスのどちらか、または両者死亡している場合

Innes:
Get out of the way, Boy.▼
You're no use in battle.▼
Ewan:
No way. I'm gonna fight too.▼

→選択・2-A ジストとテティスが生存している場合

Tethys:
No. You're too young.
You're not ready for this.▼
Are you going to do as
I say or not?▼
I don't know what I would do
if you were to get injured.▼
Ewan:
Oh...OK.▼

→選択・2-B ジストかテティスのどちらか、または両者死亡している場合

Innes:
We don't need your help.
You'll just be in the way.▼
You can get yourself killed
when you're older.▼
Ewan:
Fine! I'll do what you say.▼
Innes:
You're better do it quickly.▼
Those beasts won't take it easy
on you because you're young.▼
L'Arachel:
What spacious chambers.▼
Hm... A bit musty, but
I like it.▼
I've decided. We'll bed here
for the night.▼
I do wonder where Rennac
disappeared to, though.▼
I told him not to wander
off, but...▼
Dozla:
Hmph!▼
Lady L'Arachel,
this could be trouble.▼
L'Arachel:
What is it, Dozla?▼
Dozla:
Look there! Through that break
in the fog...▼
Looks like we've got some nasty
creatures running 'bout this place.▼
L'Arachel:
...I can't see a thing.▼
But this can be nothing but good
fortune shining down on us again.▼
Losing our way into the mountains and
running into these abominations?▼
There can be no doubt: we were brought
here to destroy these foul things!▼
Come, Dozla! We fight!▼
Dozla:
Gwah ha ha!▼
My heart cries out for battle!▼

Eirika:
You... L'Arachel!▼
L'Arachel:
Hello!▼
So it's true! Blessings
do come in threes!▼
Eirika:
L'Arachel, this place is dangerous.
You should find safe haven elsewhere.▼
L'Arachel:
Oh, you needn't worry about us.▼
As you well know, my divine mission is
to purge the land of these obscenities.▼
I will show you the splendor that is
L'Arachel in action! Bear witness!▼
Eirika:
If you insist. At least let us
join forces for the time being.▼

ラーチェル→ドズラ

L'Arachel:
Dozla.▼
Dozla:
Gwah ha ha! What is it,
Lady L'Arachel?▼
L'Arachel:
We're going to join these good people and
eradicate these unclean monstrosities.▼
Dozla:
Sounds fun! What would
you have me to do?▼
L'Arachel:
Oh, just carry on in your normal
manner: destroy, destroy, destroy.▼
But do be sure to enjoy yourself.▼
Dozla:
Gwah ha ha! I am your
obedient servant!▼

クリア後

→選択・3-A ラーチェルが戦闘不能になっていない場合

Eirika:
Thank you, L'Arachel.▼
L'Arachel:
Please, speak nothing of it.▼
It is heaven's dictate that I come here to
cleanse this charming place of monsters.▼
What's important is--▼
Oh my! I just realized I have not yet had
the honor of your name.▼

→選択・3-B ラーチェルが戦闘不能になっている場合

Eirika:
Are you all right?
L'Arachel?▼
L'Arachel:
Uhnn... Can't believe it...▼
Those foul wretches got the better of
me. I must be part of heaven's plan...▼
Oh, Something just struck me!▼
I just realized I have not yet had the
honor of your name.▼
Eirika:
Oh, you're right.▼
How strange... We've met so often now
that I assumed you already...▼
Please forgive me lack of manners.
My name is Eirika.▼
Seth:
Milady...▼
Eirika:
It's all right, Seth. She's
clearly not our enemy.▼
L'Arachel:
Eirika...▼
Aha! So you must be Princess Eirika
of Renais!▼
It is simply an honor to meet you.▼
And how strange that we should
meet again in this place.▼
You must be lost as well.
This continent is so confusing.▼
Eirika:
Um, yes. Actually, we're not
lost at all.▼
You see...▼
L'Arachel:
Is that so!▼
Well, clearly, must be
allowed to accompany you.▼
Eirika:
You want to travel with us?▼
I appreciate your offer, but our
journey is far too perilous.▼
I do not wish to pull you into
this madness.▼
L'Arachel:
No, no, no.▼
There can be no doubt that we were
sent here to aid you.▼
It is all part of the grand design.▼
I, L'Arachel, shall play my role and
fulfill my divine duties. This I swear!▼
Seth:
Are you sure this is wise, Princess?▼
Eirika:
Don't worry, Seth.▼
L'Arachel:
...Well, that's that, Dozla.▼
You and I are now traveling with
Eirika and her companions.▼
Dozla:
Gwah ha ha!
I understand.▼
For you, Lady L'Arachel, I
would do absolutely anything!▼
I would run to the ends of this
world and dive into a sea of evil!▼
L'Arachel:
How very like you, my dear,
dedicated Dozla! So noble!▼
Come! We're off!▼
Dozla:
Gwah ha ha!▼
Ewan:
Teeeaaaacher...
Hellooooooo...▼
That's strange.
He's not here.▼
Must be out wandering again.▼
Eirika:
He's out?
That poses a problem.
Do you know when he'll return?▼
Ewan:
Hmmm... I don't know.▼
He often goes out and looks
for people in need.▼
Saleh (Offscreen):
...I believe I told you
it would be best to stay away.▼
Saleh:
I've been charged with a mission
and must depart again soon.▼
Ewan:
Ah! Teacher!▼
Eirika:
Y-you...▼
We've met before, haven't we?▼
You were looking for someone...▼
Saleh:
...Oh, yes.▼
And now we meet again.▼
Ewan:
These people say they want to
go through Caer Pelyn.▼
I could guide them myself, but I thought
it might be better if you went, too.▼
That's why I brought them here.▼
What do you say? Will you guide them?▼
Saleh:
......▼
Eirika:
Would you, please?▼
Saleh:
...Very well. I'm heading
there now.▼
If you need to go to Caer Pelyn,
you're free to follow me.▼
Eirika:
You don't mind?▼
Saleh:
We have little interest in the outside
world, but we do not refuse travelers.▼
I should warn you: the road is not
easy, and you look very weary.▼
You should rest a night before
attempting the mountains.▼
Innes:
We do need rest, it's true.▼
We are all exhausted from our
encounter with those creatures.▼
We must give our men time to heal, or
they'll be useless in an emergency.▼
Ewan:
It's settled then. I'll go on ahead
and let the elder know we're coming.▼
See? Even when there's no fighting
to be done, I'm still useful!▼
Eirika:
No, wait!▼
...He's gone. I wonder
if he'll be all right.▼
Innes:
Idiotic boy.▼
I understand his need
to be helpful, but...▼
Saleh:
Ewan knows this land well.
You needn't worry about him.▼
We'll depart at sunrise. I
suggest you all get some rest.▼
Glen:
Princess Eirika of Renais.
Hold.▼
Eirika:
Who?▼
You...
You're General Glen of Grado.▼
We met once in the capital, didn't we?▼
You were very kind to me.▼
However, if you're here now, I have
to assume this means...▼
Glen:
Yes, it does. I wish our reunion could
have come under different circumstances.▼
Eirika, I must tell you, I come here
on the direct orders of the emperor.▼
I'm to bring justice to the rebel army
leader who's been terrorizing Carcino.▼
It's you, Eirika. They say you've been
murdering innocents.▼
Eirika:
What?▼
Wait! What do you mean?
I...▼
Glen:
...If you have something to say,
I would hear it.▼
I know all too well that Grado has robeed
you of your homeland, but even so...▼
I do not believe revenge could drive
a woman like you to such depths.▼
And yet...here you are in Carcino with
a small army under your command.▼
And the emperor tells us that you
massacred everyone in Port Kiris.▼
Eirika:
That... That's a lie!▼
I could never...▼
Glen:
Go on.▼
Innes:
...This is ridiculous.
Believe what you want.▼
Could one of the legendary Imperial
Three honestly be as stupid as this?▼
Glen:
...What do you mean?▼
Innes:
Carcino betrayed Frelia and set
a pack of mercenary dogs to kill me.▼
And you paint Eirika a rebel instigator?
It's an absurd farce.▼
Your emperor commits horrors, and you
believe Eirika is a criminal?▼
Glen:
...What are you saying?▼
Innes:
You truly are blind, aren't you?▼
You're one of the Imperial Three, and
yet you can't see your emperor's plan?▼
Eirika:
That's enough, Prince Innes. There's
no need to provoke him.▼
General Glen, we've told you what we know
to be true, what we've seen firsthand.▼
We don't want to fight you...▼
But if you push us, we will drive you back
to Grado with your tail between your legs.▼
Glen:
...I see.▼
You...are more observant than you know.
I am ignorant of the emperor's designs.▼
General Duessel and I both questioned
the wisdom of this war.▼
And if you really are innocent of the
crimes attributed to you...▼
Why would His Majesty lie to us?
I must know the answer.▼
Eirika:
So, you...believe us?▼
Glen:
The Princess Eirika I met long ago was
kind and merciful in spirit.▼
You've faced relentless hardship, and yet
that selfsame spirit remains true.▼
...Let's put our fight aside for now.▼
I will learn the truth. Then I will once
again perform the duties of my office.▼
If you have lied to me today, I will
found you to the very grave itself.▼
Eirika:
Very well...▼
Valter:
Glen. Where do you think you're going?▼
Glen:
Valter...▼
Valter:
Tsk, tsk. What am I to make of this?▼
Those little birds I saw flitting away
into the mountains looked vaguely familiar.▼
What do you suppose would happen if it
were known you let Eirika escape?▼
Glen:
Do as you will.▼
I'm returning to the capital.
I have questions for the emperor.▼
Clear the path, Valter.▼
Valter:
Hold on now. No reason
to rush off, is there?▼
After all, this is where
you're going to die. See?▼
Glen:
...What are you babbling about?▼
Valter:
Heh heh...▼
We were a grand trio--the Imperial
Three: You, Duessel, and me.▼
But my place among you was stolen,
and I was exiled from Grado.▼
Glen:
You slaughtered people who had
no intention of fighting.▼
The emperor's punishment was
just and warranted.▼
Valter:
Heh heh...heh heh heh...▼
After my fall from glory, only desire
kept me alive. Desire for revenge.▼
My hatred burned so fierce that I was
only barely able to keep my sanity.▼
That hatred keeps me warm still
today. Oh, how it burns...▼
Glen:
......▼
Valter:
hear me, Glen, wyvern general
of the Imperial Three.▼
I live for battle. I crave it.
I have no need for peace.▼
That is why you must die.▼
Glen (Battle screen):
Cur! You're mad!▼
Valter (Battle screen):
A battle between generals...
Sends the spirit soaring, eh?▼
Come, Glen! Entertain me!
Ha ha ha ha ha ha!▼
Glen (Battle screen):
Urrgh...▼
Valter:
Go. The small fish are yours.▼
Valter:
Heh heh...▼
This is merely the beginning.
Endless battle, war without end...▼
Heh heh...ha hahahahahaha!▼
