Ch.15: Scorched Sand

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15章:灼けた砂)。

ワールドマップ

Ephraim's sister is in danger.▼
Grado's General Caellach has attacked
Jehanna Hall, forcing its surrender.▼
Though Eirika and her troops have left the
Hall, Grado's forces pursue them relentlessly.▼
Trapped in the burning desert, enemy forces
close in on them from all sides.▼
With no time to wait for Frelia's troops,
Ephraim leaves for Jehanna immediately.▼
He must go to his sister's aid.▼

オープニング

Ephraim:
There's Jehanna Hall...
It's nothing but a ruin now.▼
Blast! I don't know what's
happened, but...▼
I'd better get to Eirika and the
others as soon as possible.▼
Seth:
I've discovered which of Grado's generals
lead the forces surrounding the hall.▼
Valter the Moonstone and
Caellach the Tiger Eye.▼
Two of the strongest of the empire's
generals, with near-peerless forces.▼
Above all else, we must rescue Princess
Eirika, and yet...▼
If you fall, Prince Ephraim, we're all
finished. And this accursed sand...▼
Most of the units can't get proper
footing and are being slowed down.▼
Mounted units are hacing the worst time,
as their movement is severely limited.▼
Some of us can move better than
others, though...▼
A combination of magic wielders and sky
riders should give us some advantage.▼
Whatever we do, we must move cautiously.▼
Ephraim:
I understand. This is just
like the battle for Renvall.▼
We either rescue Eirika or
defeat all the enemy troops.▼
If we accomplish either goal,
victory is ours.▼
Let's move!▼
Lyon:
How goes it, Caellach?▼
Caellach:
Ah, Prince Lyon.▼
Thank you, Your Highness, for gracing
me with...your royal...er...▼
Lyon:
You can stop. There's no need for you to
put on airs.▼
You were made general for your military
prowess, not your flowery speech.▼
Caellach:
And an honor it is.▼
You know, Prince Lyon, you've got a lot of
nerve.▼
You've really worked over your dear friend
the princess of Renais. Are you satisfied?▼
Lyon:
Is there some reason you ask?▼
Caellach:
No, not really.▼
I just wanted to see how
you'd react. That's all.▼
Lyon:
She... Eirika has always been
a very important person in my life.▼
Both she and her brother have been
friends of mine for a long time.▼
Tell me, Caellach, do you have any
friends to speak of?▼
Caellach:
Huh?
Yeah, I got one.▼
An old mercenary I fought with, went
by the name of Joshua.▼
He was a fool and a scoundrel, but
now that he's gone, I miss the lad.▼
I don't know where he's at or what
he's doing, but...▼
Lyon:
Do you miss that life? Do you ever want
to be a mercenary again, to see him?▼
Caellach:
Nope. The time we worked together was
fun and all, but... No.▼
I don't want to end up another no-name
mercenary lying dead in a ditch.▼
I'd rather serve the Grado Empire
and make a name for myself.▼
I'm going to see how far my axe will
take me. And then, one day...▼
Lyon:
One day, you'll kill me and be
emperor in my stead. Is that it?▼
Caellach:
Uh... That's...▼
Lyon:
It's all right. Think whatever you
like if it helps you do your duty.▼
As long as you do what I assign you
to do, I'm happy.▼
But for now, I'm going. You know
what you need to do.▼
Caellach:
Yep, leave it to me.▼
I am General Caellach, the Tiger Eye
of the Grado Imperial Army, after all!▼
Once my prey is within my reach,
I never let it escape.▼
Too bad for the princess, but they've
no chance of winning. None at all.▼

PLAYER PHASE1開始直前

Eirika:
Prince Innes...
And Saleh...▼
I'm sorry. I'm absolutely
powerless here...▼
Innes:
Eirika, you have nothing to apologize for.
We're not defeated yet.▼
Jehanna Hall has fallen, that much is true.▼
But if we can hold out until Ephraim arrives,
we still have a chance of victory.▼
Saleh:
And reports place Lady Myrrh at
Prince Ephraim's side.▼
It is my duty to protect her.▼
I will not die without having
fulfilled my obligation to her.▼
Eirika:
You're right...
I made a promise, too.▼
I told Ephraim I would live to see
him again.▼
We have to pull together. All of us. We
just have to hold out a little longer.▼
If we pool our strength now, I vow that we
will all live to see our friends again.▼

Eirika!▼
Ephraim:
Brother?▼
Is that really you? You're
not some phantom, are you?▼
Ephraim:
No, it's really me.▼
Hold.
Enemies approach.▼
Eirika:
...Ephraim.▼
Even when you were children, you
were always there to protect me.▼

ゼト⇔エイリーク

Seth:
Princess Eirika,
are you well?▼
Eirika:
Seth!
If you're here...▼
Seth:
Prince Ephraim is safe as well.▼
Princess Eirika, we will stop the
remaining enemy soldiers here.▼
Would you please take caution and
think of your own safety?▼
Eirika:
Thank you, Seth.▼
You've saved me so many times
since the fall of Renais...▼
Seth:
It is my duty. Let's go,
Princess Eirika.▼

ターナ⇔エイリーク

Tana:
Oh, Eirika!
Here you are!▼
Eirika:
Tana!
You've come as well?!▼
Tana:
Yes, I came all the
way with Ephraim.▼
I'm just so happy to
see you're safe.▼
Eirika:
Tana. Thank you so much
for coming to my aid.▼
Tana:
Well, of course I came.
That's natural.▼
We're friends after all!▼

Tana:
B-Brother.▼
Innes:
Tana?
Why are you here?▼
I told you to remain at
Castle Frelia.▼
Tana:
Don't talk to me like that.▼
I'm a fully sworn knight
of Frelia, you know?▼
I came all the way here
with Prince Ephraim.▼
Innes:
What? With that man?▼
Tana:
Brother!
Ephraim's a good person.▼
We can talk about this later.
I still see enemy troops about.▼
I think we should join forces
and fight together.▼
Innes:
Working together is, of course,
the best strategy.▼
But don't do anything foolish, Tana.
Who knows what Father would think.▼
Tana:
I understand.▼
You try not to be overly
heroic yourself, Brother.▼

Ah! Teacher.▼
Saleh:
Ewan? What are
you doing here?▼
Ewan:
I came with Prince Ephraim
and his friends.▼
I've done a lot of good
work, Teacher.▼
Saleh:
Is that so...▼
Well, if you all hadn't shown
up, I'm sure we'd be dead now.▼
You've saved us, Ewan. Thank
you. I am in your debt.▼
Ewan:
Do you mean that?▼
As a reward, will you teach
me some more powerful magic?▼
Saleh:
...I suppose I should at that.
But all in good time, Ewan.▼
Ewan:
Yahoo!▼

上の家

Young Man:
All the highest generals in Grado's army
receive titles named after gemstones.▼
The emperor currently has six gemstones
fighting in his service.▼
Caellach, the Tiger Eye, commands the
forces fighting here.▼
The Moonstone, Valter, is taking part in
this battle as well.▼
Glen, also known as the Sunstone, died
in the mountains of Carcino.▼
Selena Fluorspar was killed in
western Grado.▼
Duesse, whom they call Obsidian,
is missing in action...▼
The Blood Beryl, whose real name is
Riev, has also gone missing.▼
Hm?
How do I know all this?▼
I know I may look young and naive,
but this is my job.▼
I'm here to pass this information
along to help you out.▼
And it's good information, too, so
don't waste it.▼

下の家

Man:
According to this ancient document...▼
...There was a huge battle here
long, long ago.▼
Every day, I'm out here digging up ancient
weapons and artifacts out of the sand.▼
There are still more to be found,
of that you can be sure.▼
It's even said a long-dead sage left a
copy of Metis's Tome out here...▼
Oh! But I won't give that to anyone
if I find it. Not a chance!▼

Joshua:
It's been a long
time, Caellach.▼
Caellach:
Is that really you, Joshua?
How's long's it been?▼
Joshua:
About two years...
What've you been doing?▼
You know, that innkeeper's
still mad you stiffed him.▼
Caellach:
Oh, please...▼
You're telling me that old
dog's still alive?▼
...How's the rest of the
troop doing?▼
Joshua:
They're getting by.▼
Some of them ended up
feeding the crows, though...▼
Caellach:
Is that so?▼
Those were good times,
weren't they, Joshua?▼
We were terrors on the
battlefield and worse off it.▼
Joshua:
Yeah, we were.▼
You'd get carried away and
pick fights with me...▼
You always said the same
thing: "I will be king!"▼
Caellach:
Yeah. That's my dream.▼
And I'll do anything to
make it come true.▼
What do you say, Joshua?
Let's team up again?▼
Leave those losers you're
with and work for me.▼
Joshua:
Sorry, can't do it.▼
I'm not going to let
you use me for anything.▼
Caellach:
Bah... You're a cold
fish, aren't you.▼
That's the one thing that hasn't
changed about you.▼
Joshua:
You haven't changed
much either.▼
You're still as
shameless as ever.▼
Caellach:
Ha ha!
That's the truth.▼
Well...▼
You want to get started?▼
Josua:
Mm... Sure.▼
Caellach:
I'm stronger then I used
to be.▼
No offense, but you're not
in my league anymore.▼
Don't hate me, Joshua.▼
Joshua:
Same to you.▼

ヨシュア以外

Caellach:
You're a stepping-stone...
And I'm moving up.▼
Don't take it personally.▼

Valter:
Is that you, Cormag?▼
Even you have turned your
back on your emperor?▼
Cormag:
......▼
Valter:
Don't tell me you stand there
thinking you can beat me.▼
You're not strong enough.
You know this to be true.▼
Cormag:
......▼
Valter:
If you swear fealty to Grado
again, I may let you live.▼
You don't want to die an
oath breaker, do you?▼
Well? Will you crawl before me
and beg for forgiveness?▼
Cormag:
...Yes, I have broken my
vows, Valter.▼
And yes, it may be I who falls
when we tilt lances...▼
But a dog like you will never
see me crawl.▼
Valter:
Brave words from a traitor.▼
Let's see if your lance is
as sharp as your tongue.▼

エフラム

Valter:
Hello again, Ephraim.▼
I let you flee once, but this
time, there's no escape.▼
Ephraim:
Escape?
I'm not going anywhere.▼
I come here for you.
I come to defect you.▼
Valter:
What's this?▼
A scurrying little mouse
that roars like a lion?▼
Are you saying this time
will be different than last?▼
Will you finally provide me
with some amusement?▼
Ephraim:
I'll do far more than that.▼
I'll provide you with a messy
end to you sorry life.▼

エイリーク

Valter:
Mmm... I've been waiting
for you, Eirika!▼
Eirika:
Who are you?▼
Valter:
Have you forgotten? We met
once at Castle Renais.▼
No? Look closely, Eirika.▼
Do you not remember the face
of he who will master you?▼
Eirika:
Wha--!?▼
Valter:
Yes, resist.▼
It's much more fun
for me that way.▼
Come, Eirika. I should
like to tame you.▼
Eirika:
I am here on a mission.▼
One that I swore to my
brother I would fulfill.▼
I will not be stopped by
the likes of you!▼

クリア後

Ephraim:
Eirika!▼
Eirika:
Brother!▼
Ephraim:
You've done well, Eirika.▼
Eirika:
Thanks to you, Ephraim.▼
Ah... Wait a moment.
I've something to give to you.▼
Ephraim:
These are...▼
Eirika:
These are the Sacred Twin
relics of Jehanna.▼
The ice sword Audhulma and
the wind blade Excalibur.▼
Ephraim:
Jehanna's Sacred Twins?▼
But it seems like we were
too late...▼
Jehanna Hall has fallen.▼
Eirika:
Yes, and Queen Ismaire died
resisting Grado.▼
L'Arachel:
Now that we have, at last, been
reunited once again,▼
perhaps this would be a good
time to share information.▼
I'm sure we all are most anxious
to learn of what has happened.▼

(Got Audhulma)
(Got Excalibur)

Ephraim:
I see unfamiliar faces among you here,
so allow me to introduce myself.▼
I am Ephraim, Eirika's brother and
crown prince of Renais.▼
L'Arachel:
I'm Princess L'Arachel of Rausten.
The please is mine, of course.▼
Ephraim:
I'll begin by telling you of
how we've fared in our mission.▼
We seized the Grado capital and
defeated her emperor, Vigarde.▼
Grado's capital guard have, to a man,
surrendered and laid down their arms.▼
Pockets of resistance remain, but the
war itself is over.▼
Innes:
Is that so?▼
Ephraim:
However, something remains that
still bothers me.▼
A Grado man named Knoll told me about
something called a "Dark Stone."▼
Their mages had uncovered lore that led
them to craft a powerful magic stone.▼
This Dark Stone may have been the
catalyst of Grado's transformation.▼
It seems to be the source of that black
wave of energy that Myrrh described.▼
Vigarde died some time ago, but the power
of the stone played him like a puppet.▼
The war and everything that passed since
was planned by the Dark Stone's master.▼
Innes:
Well? Who is it?▼
Ephraim:
...I still can't believe it,
but I'll tell you nonetheless.▼
According to Knoll, the man behind
this is Lyon, the imperial prince.▼
He said Lyon's got the Dark Stone.▼
Innes:
Figures it's Prince Lyon...▼
Eirika:
No, that doesn't make any sense.▼
Ephraim and I know Lyon better than
that. We've been friends for years.▼
Lyon's not the sort of person who
could start a war like this.▼
Innes:
But, Eirika...▼
Eirika:
I saw Lyon recently.▼
Ephraim, you might know this, but after
I abandoned the sea route to Rausten,▼
I traveled overland with Prince
Innes to Jehanna.▼
We ran into trouble with Grado's
forces, and I chanced upon Lyon.▼
He didn't share the details of his
situation, but he intimated that▼
he was on our side. Despite all
appearances, he was on our side.▼
So Lyon...▼
Ephraim:
Eirika,
I also met Lyon.▼
Eirika:
Did you really?▼
Ephraim:
Yes. But, he was like a
completely different person.▼
To be honest, he didn't seem
to be completely...human.▼
Eirika:
Ephraim...
What are you saying?▼
Ephraim:
I'll tell you what I saw.▼
I found Lyon inside Grado Keep.▼
This is what he told me:
He said he was behind this war.▼
He said he'd befriended us solely so that,
one day, he could invade Renais...▼
He told me he killed our father.▼
Eirika:
That... That can't...▼
Ephraim:
I know. I can't believe it either.
I refuse to believe it.▼
How could he have planned all
this since he was a child...▼
I simply can't fathom it.▼
I've heard Lyon changed when he acquired
the Dark Stone.▼
I've no interest in magic, but...
There was something uncanny about him.▼
It seemed almost as though he were being
controlled by something himself.▼
Eirika:
......▼
Innes:
The two of you might find this hard
to accept, but...▼
The state of Prince Lyon's heart matters
little. He has the Dark Stone.▼
That rock is the cause of all that's
happened. The prince must be stopped.▼
L'Arachel:
Not yet. There is something
that needs doing first.▼
Eirika:
L'Arachel?▼
L'Arachel:
Prince Ephraim, I do believe you
felt it as well.▼
The Dark Stone held by Prince Lyon...
It exudes a malefic miasma...▼
We might be able to handle Prince Lyon
alone, but that stone is beyond our ken.▼
Eirika:
Then what do you suggest?▼
L'Arachel:
The Sacred Stones.▼
Eirika:
The Sacred Stones?▼
L'arachal:
We've all heard the legend of the
five Sacred Stones.▼
The alone possessed the power to
seal the Demon King away forever.▼
So, of course, to dispel demonic
magic, we must use the Sacred Stones!▼
Innes:
You expect us to pin the outcome
of this war on some fool legend?▼
Ephraim:
...Not just the legend.
We also have hope.▼
According to Lyon,▼
he has already seen to the destruction of
Grado's, Frelia's, and Jehanna's stones.▼
Eirika:
Hm. That explains something...▼
Grado forces attacked me, intent on
destroying the Stone of Renais.▼
If that could be the reason they
chose to invade Renais...▼
The power of the Sacred Stones may
be greater then we'd ever know.▼
L'Arachel:
Yes, exactly!▼
If we acquire a Sacred Stone, we'll be
able to oppose the Dark Stone's might!▼
Innes:
But three of the stones have been
shattered, and our options are few.▼
Do you suppose that, during the
invasion of Renais...▼
Ephraim:
No, I don't think so.▼
The Stone of Renais is hidden by the
power of Eirika and my bracelets.▼
Eirika:
Grado has made many attempts
to take our bracelets.▼
Every one has failed, and so
the stone may still be safe.▼
Ephraim:
We have yet to confirm that, of course.▼
We've defeated Grado, and yet we must
turn our eyes to our homeland.▼
It's time to return to Renais.▼
Saleh:
Lady Myrrh.▼
Myrrh:
Saleh...▼
Saleh:
I'm grateful to see you well.▼
The people of Caer Pelyn will
be overjoyed that you're safe.▼
Myrrh:
I must apologize to you, Saleh.▼
You were there to protect me from
the very start of my journey.▼
When we were attacked, I was
separated from you, and...▼
I'm so sorry to have worried you.▼
Saleh:
Lady Mrrh.▼
As long as you are safe, we have
nothing to be worried about.▼
It will by my honor to serve you
until your mission is complete.▼
Myrrh:
Thank you, Saleh.▼
