ワールドマップ

Thanks to the arrival of reinforcements
from Princess L'Arachel of Rausten,▼
Eirika and her allies successfully repel the
Grado invaders.▼
Still, Jehanna Hall remains under siege, on
the edge of ruin.▼
En route, Eirika learns that the hall has
indeed been captured by Grado.▼
To rescue Queen Ismaire and recover
Jehanna's Sacred Stone,▼
Eirika leads an assault on the royal hall.▼

オープニング

Lyon:
...I yield.
The point is yours, Eirika.▼
You're swift, aren't you?
Compared to you, I'm--▼
I've been bested at fencing by a woman.
Pitiful crown prince, am I not?▼
Eirika:
That's not true...▼
Lyon:
Oh, no, Eirika. It is. The people
need a strong ruler.▼
They don't want a weakling like me. They
want the strength you and Ephraim share.▼
My body is frail. I prefer to spend my
time locked away in the castle, reading...▼
I think my father would be better served
if someone else took my place.▼
I'm sure all of our retainers feel
the same...▼
Eirika:
You're wrong, Lyon.▼
An emperor without compassion will
never hold the people's love.▼
And one day, your compassion will
surely save us all.▼
I believe that.▼
Lyon:
Eirika... Thank you.▼
Yes.
I...I will do my best.▼
Even though I lack your strength,
there must be some good I can do.▼
Eirika:
There is.▼
Lyon:
By the way, Eirika...▼
If it please you, would you
accept this?▼
Seth:
Princess Eirika?
Is there something wrong?▼
Eirika:
N-no.
It's nothing.▼
Seth:
Jehanna Hall has been completely
occupied by Grado soldiers.▼
I'm sorry to report that Queen
Ismaire is already...▼
Innes:
And the one giving orders to the troops
in the palace is Crown Prince Lyon?▼
L'Arachel:
What is there to give us pause?▼
Should we not storm the palace and
retake it by strength of arms?▼
Innes:
Frelia's spy network reports that Prince
Lyon is an initiate of dark magic.▼
If this is true, even approaching him
will be a serious challenge.▼
I'd heard the prince dislikes violence.
However, it could all have been a ruse.▼
Eirika:
......▼
Innes:
Still, if we don't retake the palace,
we've no hope of defeating Grado.▼
We must rescue the queen, no matter
the cost...▼
Eirika:
I understand. Let's go!▼
Carlyle:
Queen Ismaire...
Please do not resist.▼
I have no desire to see
you harmed.▼
Ismaire:
Carlyle... Why have you betrayed us?▼
After all these years of loyal service
as Jehanna's most decorated commander...▼
Without you, I could not have ruled these
long years since my husband's passing.▼
It was through your unwavering support
alone that I still sit upon the throne.▼
You are the cornerstone of Jehanna. You
have held my trust more than any man.▼
So tell me why. Why have you betrayed
us? Why have you betrayed me?▼
Carlyle:
Your Highness--No...
My queen... Ismaire...▼
It is your own fault.▼
You are too lovely, my queen.▼
Ismaire:
Carlyle...▼
Carlyle:
The first time I met you,
twenty years ago now...▼
I saw you in the garden
of this very palace...▼
and I was bewitched.▼
Your pale beauty far surpassed
that of any flower.▼
I was in the grips of an
unforgivable desire...▼
You were the wife of my king, to
whom I'd sworn life and loyalty...▼
I told myself a grand lie that day.▼
I told myself I could be happy simply
serving you as your most loyal knight.▼
Ismaire:
......▼
Carlyle:
After years of duty, years of service,
years of...of silence...▼
I became aware once more of the feelings
I'd buried deep within myself.▼
How could I leave this world without
expressing my true desires?▼
Could anything be more desolate?
More devoid of meaning?▼
That is when I made my decision.▼
I would follow my heart and claim
your hand as my own.▼
Ismaire:
Carlyle... You forget yourself.▼
You ruin our country and kill our
countrymen.▼
Did you think I would be pleased? Did
you think I would love you for this?▼
Carlyle:
I need no country. I care
nothing for my countrymen.▼
I can see nothing but you.
If you would only be mine...▼
Ismaire:
Carlyle...▼

Soldier:
To arms, mercenaries. We're under attack!▼
You there! Ready your weapons!▼
Rennac:
What?!? No, no, no. That
was never part of the deal.▼
The only fight I'm here for is with
the locks of the treasure chamber.▼
Soldier:
Hah... Don't get so exited.▼
I doubt you mercenaries will see any
action at all once we soldiers've finished.▼
Rennac:
Yeah, great. You go do that.▼
Whew... With all these soldiers around,
I shouldn't have to lift a finger.▼
I'll just sit here and wait for them
to win they day. Then, I collect my pay!▼
No more being ordered around by that selfish
princess and her moronic bodyguard.▼
This is the life.
Lady Luck loves me.▼
But something doesn't feel right...▼

ENEMY PHASE1開始直前

Caellach:
Hey, Carlyle!▼
Impressive work you've done
here. My compliments.▼
Carlyle:
...I have you everything I promised.
I opened the hall to your forces.▼
Caellach:
Yes. The palace is mine.▼
My palace...▼
Oh, how I do like the
sound of that.▼
Carlyle:
Do whatever you want with the
royal treasury.▼
The only treasure I wish to leave
here with is the queen of my heart.▼
Caellach:
Oh, yeah, about "your queen"...▼
There's been a change of plans.▼
Ismaire:
Ah!▼
Caellach:
Don't move, Carlyle.▼
You twitch, and the queen dies.▼
Carlyle:
Blackheart! What is the
meaning of this?▼
Caellach:
Calm down. You'll get her back as
soon as I'm done with her.▼
Jehanna's Sacred Stone is around
here somewhere.▼
I've got to find it and destroy it.▼
I need this woman to guide me to
its hiding place.▼
Carlyle:
Do not lay a hand on my queen!▼
Caellach:
Don't get so incensed.
I'm not going to harm her.▼
I'm not like that freak Valter.
I'm kind to women.▼
But if you make a wrong move, you'll
lose your prize. Understood?▼
Carlyle:
Yes...▼
Caellach:
There are some annoying pests outside
who think to win back the hall.▼
I want you to take care of them. Lose,
and the queen will never be yours.▼
Carlyle:
......▼
If my queen comes to any
harm in your care...▼
Caellach:
Yes, of course. I know all about
the might of your sword arm.▼
As long as the Sacred Stone is
destroyed, you'll get all you ask for.▼
Lyon:
......▼
Caellach:
Greeting, Prince. Let's get going.▼
Lyon:
Caellach... You will put an end
to this.▼
Destroying the Sacred Stones
is...▼
Ugh...ack...▼
Caellach:
What's this? Are you still ill?
You know, you're not very princely.▼
C'mon. Follow me.▼
Lyon:
Caellach...▼

Rennac:
Hey, that's a comely lass.
Think I'll have a few words... Wait.▼
Er, haven't I met you before?▼
Eirika:
You...▼
You were traveling with
L'Arachel before, weren't you?▼
Rennac:
Oh, yeah... Renais...▼
I've got to get--▼
Eirika:
L'Arachel is traveling with us.▼
Shall I let her know you're here?▼
Rennac:
Uh, no! Wait a moment! You...
You don't have to bother her.▼
Actually I wanted to ask you something.
How would you like to hire me?▼
The name's Rennac. I'm a world-class thief,
and proud of it. A man of many talents.▼
Lockpicks are for amateurs. I can pick
chests and doors with my bare hands.▼
And I'm better with a blade than
most swordmen.▼
Eirika:
Uh...▼
Rennac:
I'm a useful fellow to have around. And
cheap, too! Only 9,980 gold!▼
Well, what do you think?▼
Eirika:
9,980 gold?▼

Should I hire him?
→ yes   No

Yesを選んだ場合

Eirika:
Fine. I'll pay the 9,980 gold.▼
Rennac:
Very good! You know a bargain
when you see one, don't you?▼
Not at all like a certain pious
princess I know.▼
Eirika:
Were you speaking of L'Arachel?▼
Rennac:
Uh, no... Idle chitchat about that
lass is bound to land me in hot water.▼
Right, then! You're my new boss.▼
Point out and doors or chests, and
get out of my way!▼

Noを選んだ場合

Eirika:
After a moment's though...▼
There's no way you can be worth
that much gold. Never mind.▼
Rennac:
Oh, no? What a shame. It's
your loss. Truly, it is.▼
Give a holler if you
change your mind.▼

一度Noを選んで再度話しかけた場合

Rennac:
Oh, you again.▼
How about it?
Do you have 9,980 gold?▼
Eirika:
Should I hire him?

→ yes   No

所持金が9,980Gに満たない場合

Eirika:
I'm afraid I only have...▼
Rennac:
Oh, oh... I see.▼
That's a bit surprising. I didn't
figure you for having money problems.▼
Such is life, eh? Come back and see
me when you've raised the gold.▼

ラーチェル→レナック

L'Arachel:
Aha!▼
So this is where you've
wandered off to, Rennac!▼
Rennac:
Princess L'Arachel?
Uh-oh, um...▼
L'Arachel:
Come with me.▼
Rennac:
Wait... Hold on now.
Go with you where?▼
Look, I'm sorry, but I've been hired
by the Grado Empire, and...▼
Hello! I'm talking to you!▼
L'Arachel:
Rennac, whatever is the matter?▼
I promise to listen to your story
later, but now, we must be going!▼
Rennac:
No, I'm no servant, like that kook
Dozla. I'm a mercenary.▼
I escorted you to Renais like I
was hired to do, didn't I?▼
You have no right to drag me across
creation without any pay whatsoever!▼
L'Arachel:
Is this about wages? I believe you've
received ample compensation.▼
Rennac:
Ample?! Do you even know what
that word means?▼
You're the princess of Rausten! I though
working for you would pay well.▼
Yet your purse strings are knotted tight,
and I've almost been killed so many--▼
L'Arachel:
The joy that comes from doing good is
not something that can be purchased.▼
There. All better?
Let's go.▼
Rennac:
NO!
I said I don't want to!▼
Riding about with you is--
...And there she goes.▼
Oh... By the Stones, why did I ever
take that job in the first place?▼
L'Arachel (Offscreen):
We must hurry, Rennac.▼
Rennac:
Right, right. I'm coming...▼

Carlyle:
You...
Could it be?▼
Joshua:
Carlyle.
How did this happen?▼
You taught me how to wield a
blade. You of all people...▼
Carlyle:
You've returned.
But now...▼
It's too late.
It's far too late.▼

カーライル初戦時

Carlyle:
I...I just wanted the
two of us...▼

クリア後

Caellach:
This is as good a place as any.▼
All right, Your Majesty.
Hand over the Sacred Stone.▼
Ismaire:
...I know nothing of the
Sacred Stone's keeping place.▼
Caellach:
Don't waste me time. My partner
here sees everything.▼
When the rebellion began, you went
straight to the palace altar.▼
You had hoped to prevent us from
smashing the Sacred Stone.▼
But you have the Stone of Jehanna
with you right now, don't you?▼
Ismaire:
......▼
Caellach:
Hand it over. Cooperate,
and I'll let you live.▼
Ismiare:
...I cannot.▼
Caellach:
Oh, give it up, will you?
I've no time for games.▼
If you resist, I'll just kill
you and take it anyway.▼
Lyon:
H-hold!▼
You mustn't harm her, Caellach...▼
Caellach:
Shut up, Prince. My orders come
from higher than you.▼
You're not going to start
disobeying his word, are you?▼
Lyon:
......▼
Caellach:
Last change.▼
Give me your
Sacred Stone.▼
Ismaire:
...I cannot.▼
Caellach:
Ha ha!
A queen to the end.▼
I like you.
You've got guts.▼
Good-bye.▼
Lyon:
Ah!▼
Caellach:
And here's the Sacred Stone.▼
That makes two for me. I'm on
a roll now.▼
Caellach:
And another Sacred Stone
has been destroyed.▼
Grado, Frelia, and
now Jehanna...▼
Only two stones remain.▼
Ismaire (Offscreen):
Uuh...ahh...▼
Lyon:
Ah...
What should I do?▼
C-Caellach...
You must help her.▼
Caellach:
Leave her.▼
Let her last breath be a harsh and ragged
rasp. She's not long for this world.▼
Why, if you really wanted to help her,
you'd deliver the final blow yourself!▼
Lyon:
N-no.
I couldn't.▼
Caellach:
What a joke.▼
I have a little work to wrap up
in the hall before we leave.▼
You should hit the road pretty
soon, too, Prince.▼
Lyon:
......▼
Eirika:
I wonder where
Queen Ismaire is.▼
Innes:
I heard she was in the throne
room, but there's no sight of her.▼
And there's no Sacred Stone, either.▼
L'Arachel:
We must search quickly.▼
Lyon:
Ah...▼
Eirika:
Lyon!▼
Lyon:
Eirika...▼
Eirika:
Wait, Lyon!
Don't run away!▼
My brother and I have been
so worried about you...▼
We know more than anyone the
gentleness of your spirit.▼
Your father is deranged, isn't he?
That's why Grado invaded Renais, right?▼
Tell me, Lyon... Please...
Tell me what has happened.▼
Lyon:
I'm sorry, Eirika.▼
I've wanted to see you and
Ephraim for so long now...▼
I wanted to see you so that
I could apologize.▼
The invasion of Renais...
I couldn't stop it.▼
I'm sorry, but I still cannot
talk to you. Not yet...▼
Eirika:
You... You have a reason, don't you?▼
Lyon:
Mm...▼
I can't talk about it now, but...▼
I promise I will tell
you everything someday.▼
Eirika:
I see...
I believe you, Lyon.▼
I must tell you, I'm a little relieved.▼
I was afraid you'd changed as much as
your poor father has. I'm so glad.▼
Lyon:
Me, too, Eirika...▼
No, you have changed.▼
You're even more beautiful
than you were before.▼
Eirika:
L-Lyon...▼
Lyon:
I'm sorry, I have to go.
But please remember this.▼
This war started because I was
too weak to stop it, but...▼
I'll always be your friend.▼
Eirika:
Lyon...▼
L'Arachel:
Eirika, what are you doing? It seems
Queen Ismaire has been found.▼
This way!▼
Eirika:
Y-yes. Coming!▼

We're too late.▼
Her injuries are... She
will not last much longer.▼

...Joshua...▼
Eirika:
Queen Ismaire!▼
Ismaire:
Oh, Joshua...
Where is...that boy...▼
Eirika:
Queen Ismaire...▼
Ismaire:
Please forgive me, Joshua...▼
I was a foolish mother...▼
I was so intent on being queen that
I spared no time to be your mother.▼
But I loved you nonetheless...
Please understand...▼
Joshua:
......▼
I know, Mother.▼
Eirika:
Joshua...▼
Ismaire:
Joshua...▼
It really is you...
Joshua...my son...▼
Joshua:
I'm sorry, Mother. I should never have
left you. I've no excuse...▼
I wanted to see the world as a man, not
as a prince. I wanted to be worthy.▼
I planned on returning to your side
afterward...▼
I was so foolish. If I'd been here,
I could have--▼
Ismaire:
No, it's fine.
You're here now...▼
Listen to me, Joshua.▼
The Stone of Jehanna has...
been destroyed...▼
The one who tempted Carlyle is
responsible...▼
Joshua:
What?▼
Who was it?▼
Ismaire:
...Carried a dark stone...▼
It is...the origin of all this...▼
It should not exist...▼
Joshua...you must...▼
Our country...our people...▼
Joshua:
I understand, Mother.▼
Ismaire:
Thank you...Joshua...▼
I have something...
Something I must give you...▼
Joshua:
This is...▼
Ismaire:
It's one of the Sacred Twin relics,
unique to House Jehanna...▼
He who would rule our land
must possess it...▼
I've watched over it since your
father passed away.▼
I kept it safe and waited for this
day to come...▼
Joshua:
Mother...▼
I have it now.▼
I understand its meaning...▼
Ismaire:
Joshua...▼
My...dear, sweet child...▼
Joshua:
Mother...▼

(Got Excalibur)
Joshua:
It's been more than ten years.▼
I'd grown tired of the formality of
palace life, so I...just left.▼
I wrote a farewell and left the palace,
taking nothing with me.▼
I felt I could never understand the people
while I stayed sequestered in a castle.▼
I abandoned my identity and roamed
the continent, working where I could.▼
I wanted only to be worth of becoming
king. I knew one day I would return.▼
Gods, I was so foolish! I was such
a child, I see it now.▼
Was I simply rebelling against my mother?
Punishing her for tending to her duties?▼
Eirika:
......▼
Joshua:
I was a fool, yes, but I learned much
over these ten years.▼
I have learned about the hearts of our
people, how they need to be governed.▼
I have learned how our country needs
to change and grow.▼
I have learned much, but I've lost
much more. Mother...▼
Eirika:
Prince Joshua...▼
Joshua:
I made a promise. I want to continue
what she began.▼
I will help defeat Grado. I will defend
Jehanna and her allies.▼
...I know it doesn't sound like me, but...▼
Innes:
On behalf of Frelia, I came to Jehanna
with a letter to the throne.▼
I give it to you.▼
Prince Joshua of Jehanna...
Let us fight together.▼
L'Arachel:
Renais, Frelia, Rausten, and Jehanna.▼
Four nations...united!▼
Eirika:
Yes, I suppose that's true. And
my brother is with us as well.▼
And if it were possible...▼
Lyon... I wish you could be
here with us, too.▼
Soldier:
Fire!▼
Fires have broken out
all through the hall!▼
Joshua:
What?▼
Soldier:
The curtains were soaked in oil, with
torches set about the hall. It's a trap!▼
Someone did this during all the fighting.▼
You must flee! Quickly, before the
flames engulf us all!▼
Seth:
Princess Eirika.
We must evacuate...▼
Eirika:
I know.
Joshua, we must go. Now.▼
Joshua:
No...▼
Mother... Forgive me...▼

Come on, everyone! Let's go!▼
Eirika:
Is everyone well?
Did anyone get left behind?▼
L'Arachel:
We all made it. It's so smoky that
it's hard to tell, but we're here.▼
What a cowardly act, setting
fire to the palace hall.▼
But we've escaped without injury.
The enemy's trap has failed.▼
Innes:
...No, it hasn't.▼
Assemble the troops now.
The enemy is coming.▼
L'Arachel:
What did you say?▼
Innes:
This is the reason for the fire.
To drive us from the palace.▼
They'll be attacking soon. No
other plan makes sense.▼
L'Arachel:
How is it that you know that?▼
Seth:
Princess Eirika.▼
I've just received word that Grado
reinforcements are headed this way.▼
There are two armies, led by Generals
Valter and Caellach.▼
Eirika:
No!▼
Innes:
Two armies...▼
They're willing to send so many here
and leave the capital defenseless?▼
L'Arachel:
Why does everyone seem so distraught?
It matters not who stands in our path.▼
We shall smite them all with the
power of righteousness!▼
Seth:
Princess Eirika... It's going to be
very difficult for us to continue.▼
One of Grado's generals alone is
more than a match for us.▼
Compound that with the exhaustion of
our troops, and I'm not sure we can--▼
Innes:
Bah...▼
With Jehanna Hall in flames, we've no place
to hole up and dig in for a siege.▼
We have to retreat. We have to win
ourselves time for form a plan.▼
Grado sent two generals... What could
be happening in their capital?▼
And what of Ephraim?
Is he still alive?▼
Eirika:
...Brother...▼
