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(エイリーク編15章:灼けた砂)。

Seth:
Princess Eirika,
are you well?▼
Eirika:
......▼
Seth:
Princess Eirika!▼
Eirika:
...Oh...Seth?▼
Seth:
Yes, it's me.▼
Please, you must rest. If we
continue like this, you'll...▼
Eirika:
No...it's all right.
We're all suffering...▼
We're still completely surrounded
by Grado's armies...▼
We may all die at any moment...
I can't lose focus now.▼
Has anything changed?▼
Seth:
Unfortunately, no. On every front, our
forces meet with defeat upon defeat.▼
Rausten's knights are scattered and worn,
and the enemy is closing in around them.▼
And this accursed sand...▼
Most of the units can't get proper
footing and being slowed down.▼
Mounted units are having the worst time,
as their movement is severely limited.▼
Princess Eirika...
I ask that you leave for safety.▼
We'll use flying units and magic useres
to hold the foe here.▼
Eirika:
No. I will not retreat.▼
If I give up now...
My brother would not forgive me.▼
I'm the princess of Renais. I will
fight, either to victory or to death.▼
Brother, I...▼
Riev:
Valter...
You should stop playing around.▼
If you don't finish off Eirika's
forces swiftly...▼
Her brother's left the capital. He
should be arriving here shortly.▼
You don't want to be fighting her
still when he arrives. Trust me.▼
We are equals here in Grado's army.
Would you like me to assist?▼
Valter:
All you need to do is vanish,
you disgusting old man.▼
Eirika is mine.
I won't let you have her.▼
She is so strong, so beautiful...
She's the prey I've dreamed of.▼
Riev:
Heh heh heh...▼
You fangs are still sharp, eh?
Good. Very good.▼
Ah, Valter... You're a beast.▼
You're bound to no country. You
care noting for friend of foe.▼
Kill a man, claim a woman... You live
for nothing more, you wretched beast.▼
That's your strength. That's what makes
you stronger than any man alive.▼
A beast acts without remorse. Man's
morality cannot win. It's nature's way...▼
The stage is all yours, Valter. Do
not fail to get the girl's bracelet.▼
Our master demands it...▼
Valter:
The time is nigh, Eirika.▼
Come to me!▼

Ephraim:
That building beyond the dunes
is Jehanna Hall.▼
I expect that's where we'll find
Eirika an her companions.▼
Duessel, Knoll.▼
It's time we rescued Eirika.
I'll need all your strength.▼
Duessel:
Of course, Your Highness.▼
I've pledged my service and
my axe. You shall have both.▼
Knoll:
Princess Eirika... She's a
friend of Prince Lyon's, isn't she?▼
I'll do what I can to help you.▼
I feel like that is what Prince
Lyon would want.▼
Ephraim:
The enemy's numbers are great, but
we do not need to face them alone.▼
We must move quickly to join forces
with Eirika and her company.▼
I'm sure Seth and Innes will be
there waiting for us.▼
Let's move!▼

話す

エフラム⇔エイリーク

Ephraim:
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.▼

エフラム⇔ゼト

Seth:
Prince Ephraim.▼
Ephraim:
It's good to see you, Seth.
You've served Eirika well.▼
I knew my sister would be safe
as long as you were with her.▼
Seth:
No, she's safe only because you
came to our aid today.▼
Our situation still is not one
to promote optimism, but...▼
Ephraim:
Yes, this is the crux of the war.▼
The majority of Grado's strength
is arrayed before us...▼
We're going to win, Seth.▼
Seth:
Yes, sir.▼

エフラム⇔ヒーニアス

Innes:
It's been a long time, Ephraim.▼
Ephraim:
Innes? is that you?▼
Innes:
You arrived sooner
than I'd expected.▼
Eirika is safe. You're
no need to worry.▼
Ephraim:
I've heard that you've been
watching over Eirika.▼
I should like to offer you
my gratitude.▼
Innes:
It's not necessary. Besides,
there's still a war to be won.▼
We can't rest easy till every last
Grado soldier's been defeated.▼
Ephraim:
You're right. Let's go!▼

エフラム⇔フォルデ

Ephraim:
Forde!▼
Forde:
Ah, greetings, Prince Ephraim, Your
timing is flawless, as ever.▼
Riding in at the nick of time with your
armor shining and your lance ready...▼
It must be nice to be the dashing hero.
I'd like to try it someday.▼
Ephraim:
...That's just like you, Forde.▼
You make even a crisis such as this
seem like a stroll in the garden.▼
Forde:
They say that's one of my best traits.▼
You know, Prince Ephraim, you've changed
since the last time I saw you.▼
You're more--how should I put it?--kingly?
Is that even a word?▼
Ephraim:
You've changed a bit, too. It looks
like the journey has made you strong.▼
What say we show the Grado stragglers
how tough we've become? Let's go!▼
Forde:
Music to my ears, milord.▼

エフラム⇔カイル

Ephraim:
Kyle!▼
Kyle:
Prince Ephraim!▼
Ephraim:
You've done a great service in
protecting Eirika all this time.▼
Assigning you the task was the
right thing to do.▼
Kyle:
It was no task--it was an honor. I shall
continue to protect her as best I can.▼
Until your orders for me change, my
prince, I'll guard her well.▼
Ephraim:
We'll do so together, Kyle, because
this is where we join our forces.▼
Let's you and I finish off these
last remnants of Grado's army.▼
Kyle:
Yes, sir!▼
Ephraim:
It looks like you've had plenty of
chances to improve your swordsmanship▼
I expect you to surprise me out there.▼
Kyle:
You've grown yourself, milord.▼
You've the dignity of a king now.
Like your father before you.▼
Ephraim:
D-do you mean that?
You must be mistaken.▼
Kyle:
I am not! It is precisely why I am,
now and forever, your loyal servant!▼

デュッセル⇔クーガー

Cormag:
General Duessel.▼
Duessel:
Cormag!▼
You're...here...▼
Cormag:
I turned my back on Grado to
avenge my murdered brother.▼
I never imagined I'd see you
abandon Grado's army, though.▼
Duessel:
...Circumstance has made
me a traitor, it seems.▼
It's ironic. Two men who threw away
their country, riding side by side.▼
Cormag:
Mm.▼
General Duessel, I would consider it
an honor to serve under you again.▼
Duessel:
No. I'm a man with no country.
I'm no longer a general of Grado.▼
Cormag:
And I'm the same. Really, when
you look at it, nothing's changed.▼
Then I simply choose you as the
man I ride with and protect.▼
Duessel:
Cormag...▼

訪問

Old Woman:
Jehanna Hall...has fallen.▼
I wonder what's become of Queen
Ismaire.▼
You there...
Take this, and do some good with it.▼

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!▼

ケセルダ初戦時

ヨシュア

Joshua:
Caellach.▼
Caellach:
Hey!
If it isn't Joshua.▼
It's been a long time.
Have you been well?▼
Joshua:
I've been all right. Still
working as a mercenary.▼
When did you get all proper
and join the Grado army?▼
Caellach:
Didn't I tell you?▼
I wasn't about to waste my
life as a nameless soldier.▼
Still, I think back on those
days a lot lately...▼
My axe and your sword...▼
The two of us were a deadly
pair, eh?▼
Joshua:
......▼
Caellach:
By the way...
I know all about you, Joshua.▼
Who you really are I mean.
The prince of Jehanna, huh?▼
When did you plan on sharing
the wealth, you sneaky dog?▼
Joshua:
Listen...▼
You can't reduce a nation to
loot waiting to be divided.▼
And more importantly, I made
a vow to my mother.▼
I'm going to succeed her as
ruler of my homeland.▼
Hey, Caellach...▼
You're the one who killed
my mother, aren't you?▼
Caellach:
Yeah... Sorry 'bout that.
Things happen, you know?▼
C'mon, Joshua,
don't hate me.▼
This is war. There's nothing
you can do about it.▼
Besides, grudges get in the
way of work, right?▼
Joshua:
That's true.
It's as you say.▼
Listen, Caellach...
I've got to kill you now.▼
Don't hold it against me.▼
Caellach:
You arrogant...
You haven't changed a bit!▼
I've always wanted to show
you who's better, Joshua.▼
And I'm even stronger than
I used to be.▼
I'm gonna wipe that smug look
off your face for good!▼

ヨシュア以外

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

Caellach:

A bit more, and...a crown...
would have been...mine...▼

クーガー

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!▼

クーガー・エフラム・エイリーク以外

I've no use for these
bloodless minnows...▼
Give me prey that will
sate my bloodlust...▼
I hunger!▼

Urggh... Gaaaah!▼

クリア後

Eirika:
Brother!▼
Ephraim:
Eirika!▼
Eirika:
Oh, Ephraim...
I've missed you so.▼
Ephraim:
And I've missed you.▼
I can't tell you how happy
I am to see you safe.▼
Oh, I almost forgot. I have
something to give you.▼
Eirika:
What are these?▼
Ephraim:
These are called Sacred Twins. We
took these relics from Grado.▼
The dark tome Gleipnir and
the black axe Garm...▼
I doubt either of us can use them, but...▼
Why not see if one of your companions can
use them. They might have better luck.▼
Eirika:
They're from Grado?▼
Does this mean Grado Keep
has fallen?▼
Ephraim:
Yes. I conquered the capital and
defeated Emperor Vigarde.▼
But still...▼
L'Arachel:
Eirika, may I made
a suggestion?▼
We've been able to
join forces here so...▼
How about if we all get together
and trade information.▼
There are people on both
sides waiting after all.▼

(Got Gleipnir)
(Got Garm)

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 Ephraim:
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.▼
