Ch.13: Fluorspar's Oath

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13章:蛍石の誓い)。

ワールドマップ

Ephraim leads the group to Za'albul Marsh in
search of the missing Myrrh.▼
They learn from soldiers and villages that
Myrrh had been captured by General Selena,▼
one of Grado's commanders.
She was last seen heading east.▼
To regain their companion, the group will
now be forced to fight.▼
Ephraim steels his heart to the reality
that he must face Selena.▼

Selena:
So this is a dragonstone...▼
The description was accurate. It
looks like an ordinary gemstone.▼
If only His Majesty hadn't ordered me to
bring this to the capital immediately...▼
I've heard reports that Prince Ephraim
and a Frelian army have landed nearby.▼
If I didn't have those blasted
restrictive orders, I could--▼
Myrrh (Offscreen):
Return it...▼
Selena:
What?▼
Myrrh:
The stone... Please.
Return it to me.▼
Selena:
You... You're--▼
Myrrh:
Return the stone to me...
Please...I'll do anything.▼
Selena:
Why do you want the stone?▼
Who are you? You're not from
Grado, that's for sure.▼
Myrrh:
Without the stone, I...▼
Please, give it back to me.▼
Selena:
Answer my questions!▼
Myrrh:
My name is Myrrh. I come from
Darkling Woods.▼
I was betrayed, and my stone
was taken from me.▼
I was imprisoned, caged, to be
transported somewhere.▼
Prince Ephraim came to my rescue.▼
I've been traveling in his care
ever since.▼
Selena:
You're with Ephraim?▼
I can't let you leave. Maybe I should
take you back to the capital with me.▼
Myrrh:
Wait...▼
You're from Grado?▼
Tell me, has anyone around you--▼
Have you noticed any changed in
the people around you recently?▼
Selena:
Changes?▼
What do you mean by that?▼
Myrrh:
Anyone near you...▼
Has anyone been transformed,
either in spirit or demeanor?▼
Does anyone act in such a way as to
appear a different person altogether?▼
Selena:
......▼
How could you know...▼
Myrrh:
The darkness is to blame.▼
I've come here to stop it.▼
Selena:
...You will tell me more.▼
If I find you are lying, I will
punish you. Do you understand?▼
Myrrh:
Yes. Are you ready?▼
I will tell you
everything I know.▼
Selena:
......▼
...I see.▼
Myrrh, I think I understand
everything you've told me.▼
Myrrh:
Good.▼
Selena:
But I cannot believe it.▼
How can I allow myself to believe
it? If it's true, then...▼
then His Majesty is already--▼
Myrrh:
Dame Selena...▼
What's that?▼
Selena:
It is a fluorspar...▼
His Majesty presented it to me
when I was promoted to general.▼
This gemstone is proof of my commission.
It's one of Grado's treasures...▼
I received it years ago, but I remember
that day like it was yesterday.▼
His Majesty smiled so kindly. His voice
was filled with dignity and affection...▼
Myrrh:
Dame Selena, you love
your emperor, don't you?▼
Selena:
What are you--▼
Myrrh:
I can see it.▼
Dame Selena, I can see
how much you treasure...▼
Selena:
......▼
His Majesty is most compassionate.▼
You see, I'm a commoner. I was raised in
a desolate, impoverished village.▼
My family couldn't afford our taxes.
No one could. We were desperate.▼
Some of us considered...horrible things
to make enough money to survive winter.▼
Then, supplies began to arrive. We were
told they came from the emperor himself.▼
He sent them to us, a poor frontier town
who couldn't even afford to pay taxes.▼
Myrrh:
......▼
Selena:
Neighboring kingdoms must have thought
the emperor mad, I can only guess.▼
But His Majesty did not care about
his standing among kinds.▼
He cared for his people. He saved us.▼
Myrrh:
......▼
Selena:
That spring, I went to the capital
and became a soldier, then a knight.▼
I wanted to dedicate my life to the
emperor who had saved it.▼
I felt I understood his dream,
I felt I shared his vision...▼
Myrrh:
Dame Selena...▼
Selena:
Myrrh, this wave of dark
energy you spoke of...▼
Can its evil really change
a person that completely?▼
Myrrh:
Yes...▼
All trace of this person would
be consumed...destroyed.▼
Selena:
How can this process be reversed?▼
Myrrh:
...I'm sorry.▼
That is...impossible.▼
Selena:
...I see.▼
Solder:
Dame Selena.
Enemy troops are heading this way!▼
We await your orders.▼
Selena:
Understood. Tell the men
we meet them head on.▼
Myrrh. I release you.▼
Return to prince Ephraim's side.▼
Myrrh:
Dame Selena...▼
Selena:
I apologize, but I cannot return
your dragonstone to you.▼
I vowed never again to fail in
my duty to His Majesty.▼
If you want the dragonstone back,
tell Ephraim he must defeat me.▼
Myrrh:
But that's--▼
Selena:
Go now! This place
will soon run red!▼
Selena:
All troops to arms!▼
For the glory of Grado!▼
Seth:
Prince Ephraim, the Grado troops are
lining up to the fore.▼
Their commander is a Grade general...
It's Selena Fluorspar.▼
L'Arachel:
Selena... I've heard she wields
the power of the thunderstorm...▼
that she uses its might to attack
from afar without mercy.▼
Seth:
Prince Ephraim, I urge you to exercise
caution when faced with such magic.▼

PLAYER PHASE1開始直前

Gerik:
Prince Innes said they would
be around here somewhere.▼
Now where in the blazes
is this Ephraim?▼
Tethys:
From this distance, I can't tell
which army is Frelia and which is Grado.▼
We'll have to move in closer if
we're to sort this all out.▼
Myrrh:
Ah...▼
Gerik:
Hm?▼
Tethys:
Oh, what an adorable girl.▼
It's all right. Come here...▼
Gerik:
You're a bit young to be on your
own. Did you get lost then?▼
Myrrh:
......▼
Tethys:
There's no reason to be afraid.▼
This fellow's a bit scary to
look at, but he's not so bad.▼
Gerik:
Come now... Hmph.
But she is right, you know.▼
If you keep looking so scared, you're
likely to hurt my feelings.▼
Tethys:
Please, little one, tell us your name.▼
Myrrh:
I am Myrrh.▼
I wish to return to Ephraim's side.▼
Gerik:
Ephraim?▼
We're supposed to be guarding
someone by that name....▼
Can you help us find him?▼
Myrrh:
Yes... He's over there.▼
Gerik:
Hey! Hold on!▼
Myrrh:
Ephraim.▼
Ephraim:
Myrrh! You're safe.
Thank goodness.▼
Myrrh:
Ephraim...
I'm sorry.▼
I... I...▼
Ephraim:
Myrrh...▼
Myrrh:
It's because I forced you
to bring me with you...▼
I didn't want to be a
burden to you any longer.▼
But all I've done is made
you worry...▼
I'm...sorry...▼
Ephraim:
It's fine, Myrrh.▼
I'm the one who should be sorry. I failed
in my promise to watch over you.▼
The battle's about to begin. I want you
to move to the rear.▼
Myrrh:
Ephraim... Those aren't bad people.
I spoke to one, and she listened--▼
Ephraim:
All right. I'll do my best
to persuade them to join us.▼

エフラムがセライナのいる島の橋で待機した時

Ephraim:
Are you Selena?▼
Selena:
Indeed I am. And you
are Prince Ephraim.▼
Ephraim:
I know you've spoken with Myrrh.▼
Withdraw your troops. You must
know that the emperor is not rational!▼
Selena:
Yes, I know.▼
Ephraim:
Then why? Why do we still fight?▼
Selena:
I am a general of the empire.
His Majesty's word is law.▼
Ephraim:
That's ridiculous. You know the emperor is
deranged, and yet you follow his orders?!▼
Is that truly loyalty?!▼
Selena:
Prince Ephraim, you cannot understand.▼
I know the path I'm given is foolish.
Yet I am a knight, and I have no other.▼
Ephraim:
Selena, please!▼
Surrender! I have no wish
to see you die here!▼
Selena:
Me? Die?▼
Prince Ephraim, you misunderstand me.
I have no intention of dying.▼
Madness though it may be, I will be
the one doing the killing today.▼

デュッセルがセライナのいる島の橋で待機した時

Duesse:
Well met, Selena.▼
Selena:
General Duessel...▼
I must offer you my apologies.▼
I called you a traitor, but
I was mistaken.▼
Your loyalty never wavered,
not for an instant.▼
Duessel:
......▼
Selena:
And yet you must know that I have
no intention of withdrawing.▼
So let us not waste words. Let us
settle this with steel, my friend.▼
Duessel:
That's how it is to be, then? One
of us dies by the other's hands?▼
Selena:
Yes. It's the path
I've chosen.▼
I have no regrets.▼
Duessel:
I see...▼
Well. I, too, must follow
the path that I have chosen.▼
Selena:
Very Well.▼

マリカ⇔ジスト

Marisa:
Chief.▼
Gerik:
Oh, Marisa!
So Ewan found you after all, eh?▼
Sorry for the trouble. Appears
the guild made an error.▼
Blast it all. I should have
double-checked everything myself.▼
Marisa:
No worries.▼
I'm with you now.▼
Gerik:
Have you taken any wounds?▼
They send you all the way to Taizel,
after all. What ill luck that was...▼
Marisa:
I'm fine.▼
I'll fight at your side.▼
Gerik:
Ah, that's comforting. We've been hired
to guard a Prince Ephraim.▼
Before we do, though, we'd better take
care of these enemy troops, huh?▼
Let's move, Marisa.▼
Marisa:
Understood.▼

エフラム⇔ジスト

Gerik:
Are you Ephraim?▼
Ephraim:
Yes, I am, but...▼
Gerik:
I'm Gerik, mercenary commander.▼
Prince Innes bought our swords
and sent use here to join you.▼
Any problem with that?▼
Ephraim:
Innes sent you?▼
Gerik:
Yeah, and the prince had a
message for you as well.▼
He said, "I've no need of assistance,
Ephraim, but I'm sure you do.".▼
That's all. I figured you would
know what he was talking about.▼
Ephraim:
Well, that's definitely from Innes.▼
Regardless, your aid is welcome.
Please join us in our fight.▼

ユアン⇔テティス

Ewan:
Ah! Sister!▼
Tethys:
Ewan, you've completed the task
you were given, haven't you?▼
This is a dangerous place. Please,
go and wait at the inn.▼
I'll be there to collect you
as soon as I'm able.▼
Ewan:
No way! I want to fight, too.▼
I've become friends with
Prince Ephraim, you know?▼
We're going to take out the
big, bad evil empire.▼
Tethys:
Wait just a minute, Ewan!▼
Ah! Ooh, that troublemaker.▼

Woman:
You must have gone through
a lot to make it here.▼
Did you come to warn us
about the fighting going on?▼
Thanks so much.▼
Here, please take this staff.
Oh, go on. Don't be shy.▼
(Got a Barrier)

右の村

Girl:
Dame Selena often visits our

She even came to our aid when
we were attacked by bandits.▼

Please, I beg of you. Don't

Selena:
I am so...very tired...▼
Now I, too...will...▼

クリア後

Myrrh:
Dame Selena...▼
Ephraim:
......▼
General Selena possessed
a curious stone.▼
Myrrh, is this the
dragonstone you lost?▼
Myrrh:
Yes, it is.▼
But I'm saddened by its return.▼
My dragonstone is here and yet...▼
My heart is heavy with remorse...▼
Ephraim:
Myrrh...▼
Myrrh:
Ephraim, can you tell me
why this had to happen?▼
Dame Selena was a good person.▼
She was filled with joy when
she spoke of the emperor.▼
Why did Dame Selena
have to die?▼
Why did we have to take
up arms against her?▼
Ephraim:
I'm sorry...▼
If I could have convinced her to
lay down her arms, I would have.▼
It was simply not possible. I had
no choice. She had to die.▼
I know you don't approve, but you
must know I have my reasons.▼
Myrrh:
My apologies...▼
Ephraim, I...
I am not seeking to blame you.▼
It's just that...I grieve for her.▼
Ephraim:
......▼
Myrrh:
I ventured out of the forest,
chasing after that dark energy.▼
I thought perhaps that I could
negate its evil force.▼
Is your cause so different from
Selena's?▼
How many good people must die
alongside the wicked?▼
Ephraim:
Myrrh...▼
Myrrh:
What can we do to end this without
any more good people dying?▼
Ephraim:
I don't have any answer for you.▼
But I will continue on toward the capital,
and perhaps I will find one there.▼
I will learn the truth behind this madness.▼
