ワールドマップ

The Capital of Renais.▼
After the twins' absence, seeing their home
ruined by war brings them terrible grief.▼
Orson, a former Knight of Renais, had been
assigned to guard Castle Renais.▼
However, he switched allegiances, betraying
his oaths of loyalty to his homeland.▼
Ephraim marks his homecoming by vowing to see
Renais healed.▼

オープニング

Eirika:
Brother...▼
Ephraim:
What has happened to our home? What
has happened to Castle Renais?▼
How did it come to be so ruined?
So desolate?▼
Seth:
Spies report that the castle is
being held by the traitor Orson.▼
Ephraim:
Orson...▼
In retrospect, I realize he's
been acting odd for a while now.▼
He seemed so...dispirited.▼
Seth:
His wife passed away some six
months back.▼
The loss may have been too much
for his mind to bear.▼
His love and devotion for his wife
were well known among the knights.▼
Eirika:
......▼
Seth:
Now, he sits alone in the king's
former bedchambers.▼
He makes no effort to govern.▼
No one is allowed to enter the
chambers, and he takes no meals.▼
Eirika:
What could he possibly be doing?▼
Seth:
I do not know. The spies had no
insight into his behavior.▼
He does nothing to deal with the dark
creatures and bandits roaming the land.▼
Reports say all of Renais is engulfed
in chaos.▼
Region after region is revolting, and
Orson's reign is already crumbling.▼
Left alone, it may very well collapse
under the weight of its own neglect.▼
Ephraim:
We cannot allow the situation
to reach that point.▼
We're going home, Eirika.
We're going to the castle.▼
Eirika:
I hear you, Ephraim.▼
Myrrh:
Um, Ephraim?▼
Ephraim:
What is it, Myrrh?▼
Myrrh:
I-I will fight with you.▼
Now that Selena has returned
my dragonstone to me...▼
I'll do what I can until its
power runs out.▼
Let's take back your home.▼
Eirika:
Are you sure about this?▼
Myrrh:
For the two of you...
I simply want to help.▼
Ephraim:
All right. I understand. But
you must make me a promise.▼
You are never to stray from
our side. Got that?▼
Myrrh:
Of course...▼
Soldier (1):
Huh? Who do you think you are?▼
These are the chambers of Orson,
steward of Renais.▼
There's no place here for a street
urchin like you, boy.▼
Soldier (2):
You... You fool!▼
This is Prince Lyon!▼
Soldier (1):
What? This whelp is...▼
I-I beg your forgiveness!▼
Lyon:
......▼
It's all right.▼
I'm not the sort of person
others hold in esteem...▼
Soldier (1):
...Who is the world is that?
What a creepy-looking man.▼
Soldier (2):
Shh... He can hear you.▼
Soldier (1):
You want to talk about creepy, that
Orson's the one who chills my hide.▼
What do you think he's doing back there?▼
I've heard a lots of bizarre rumors from
the master of the mess hall.▼
...Do you think he needs help?
Could he be dangerous?▼
Soldier (2):
I don't care. I'm here for the money.
As long as I get paid, I'm happy.▼
But on the subject of rumors, have you
heard the stories of the secret treasure?▼
There's supposed to be some fabulous
wealth hidden in Castle Renais.▼
I tell you, if I find it, I'm gone.▼
Orson:
What is it, Monica?▼
You seem so happy today.▼
Of COURSE I know what today is.
I'd never forget your birthday!▼
I have a present for you, dear.
I think you'll like it...▼
Lyon (Offscreen):
Orson.▼
Orson:
......▼
Lyon:
Do you still recognize me, Orson, or
are you entirely lost to this world?▼
Yes, it's me, Prince Lyon.▼
I'm the one whom you are indebted
for resurrecting your beloved wife.▼
Orson:
...Get out.▼
This is Monica and My place. I will
not have our home disturbed by anyone.▼
I did as you asked. I betrayed Renais.
My promise has been kept.▼
Lyon:
Yes, and I'm very grateful to you.▼
I came by today to offer you a
piece of advice. Nothing more.▼
Ephraim is coming, Orson.▼
He's on his way here to steal
the happiness you two share.▼
Orson:
Prince Ephraim?▼
Lyon:
That's right, Orson. And he's angry.▼
I don't think he'll forgive you for
betraying Renais.▼
You've done so much to free your wife from
the grave. It's a shame she'll die with you.▼
Orson:
No! That can't happen--▼
Lyon:
That's all I have to say to you.
What you do now is up to you.▼
Orson:
...Monica, I'm sorry. I have something
I must do. Please wait for me here.▼
Oh, darling, don't look so sad. I'll be
back soon, and then I'll never leave.▼
I must do this to protect our happiness.
You understand that, don't you?▼
All right then. I'll be back.▼

戦闘

オルソン初戦時

エフラム

Orson:
Prince Ephraim... You never
did know when to quit.▼
Renais is already lost.
It's too late...▼
Ephraim:
Orson... You will
move from that place.▼
That is my father's seat.
It is his throne...▼
You've no right to sit there.▼

ゼト

Orson:
Seth... So you've come,
have you?▼
Seth:
Sir Orson.▼
Orson:
You're an impressive
knight, Seth.▼
You would sacrifice your life
for king and country.▼
Not even a moment's pause.▼
It's a pitiful, unrewarding
life, through and through.▼
Seth:
It is my charge.
It is my hope.▼
Sir Orson... Prepare yourself.▼

フォルデ

Forde:
Sir Orson...▼
Why did you have to
betray us?▼
Your departed wife
is weeping in shame.▼
Orson:
You're wrong, Forde.▼
My wife is happy.
We are so very happy.▼

カイル

Kyle:
Sir Orson!▼
You betrayed your master,
Prince Ephraim, to Grado.▼
Have you forgotten what it
means to be a knight?!▼
Orson:
Kyle...
You know nothing...▼
I am happy now.▼

オルソン初戦時

Orson:
...I won't let you
come between us.▼
Monica and I will live
here happily together.▼
Forever...▼

オルソン撃破時

Orson:
Monica...▼

クリア後

Seth:
Prince Ephraim, Princess Eirika.
The castle has been secured.▼
And...▼
Ephraim:
What is it?▼
Seth:
... This way. This is the room
Orson was holed up in.▼
Monica (Offscreen):
...Darling...▼
Ephraim:
You, you're Orson's...▼
Eirika:
......▼
Monica (Offscreen):
Darling.▼
Darling.▼
Darling...darling...darling...darling...▼
Ephraim:
...What?!▼
This...is horrible...▼
Eirika:
......Oh!▼
Ephraim:
This same magic was used to
control Emperor Vigarde.▼
She's already dead, and
her corpse was used to...▼
Eirika:
Who?
Who could...▼
Ephram:
You needn't look any longer,
Eirika. Let's go outside.▼
Monica (Offscreen):
Darling.
Darling...darling...▼
Seth:
...You can't say this thing
is truly alive anymore.▼
I'll...▼
Ephraim:
No... I'll do it.▼
...The two of them spent
every day in here, did they?▼
Orson was mad.▼
But I think he was happy...▼
Ephraim:
We've finally made it back.▼
Yet...▼
Eirika:
Mmm...▼
We can repair the castle, and what
was stolen, we can do without.▼
But the wounds and suffering inflicted
upon the people of Renais...▼
Ephraim:
It's too late to undo their pain.▼
Once I become king, I must set our
country right.▼
I doubt the people will give me a warm
reception, though. I did abandon them.▼
All I can do is try to win back their
trust, no matter how long it takes...▼
Seth:
Princess Eirika, Prince Ephraim.▼
You should look outside.▼
Ephraim:
Outside?▼
People:
Prince Ephraim!
Princess Eirika!▼
People:
The king has returned!
Our king!▼
People:
Glory to Renais!
Long live King Ephraim!▼
Ephraim:
......▼
Seth:
...They're not cheering for you. They cheer
because Orson's misrule is at an end.▼
They cheer the possibility of a better
tomorrow, not the deeds we did today.▼
But how will the hearts of the people
move tomorrow and the next day?▼
That is for you to decide.▼
Ephram:
I will not let their hopes and dreams
be shattered again.▼
I will be king. Like my father before me, I
will dedicate myself to their happiness.▼
Eirika:
And I will do all I can to help, Ephraim.▼
Seth:
Prince Ephraim, Princess Eirika.▼
Before Renais fell, King Fado entrusted
me with this message:▼
"Raise the twins' bracelets in the hall
of kings.▼
The seal will be broken. The resting place
of the Sacred Stone will be revealed..."▼
Ephraim:
I understand.▼
Eirika:
So we're supposed to raise our
bracelets over our heads, right?▼
Ephraim:
Let's try it, Eirika.▼
Eirika:
I'm ready, Ephraim.▼
Ephraim:
This is the Stone of Renais...▼
Eirika:
Yes. This is one of the five stones
that defeated the Demon King...▼
Ephraim:
If Lyon had acquired our bracelets, the
stone would have been destroyed by now.▼
Together, we protected the only power
that can help us to stop Lyon's insanity.▼
Eirika:
Yes. It's the only hope left to us.▼
Hope for you and me, and the last
true hope for peace...▼
Ephraim:
Let's get back, Eirika.▼
Eirika:
...Huh?▼
Brother, look!
Our bracelets, they're...▼
Ephraim:
What is this?▼
Are they reacting to the
light of the stone?▼

Ephraim's Solar Brace and
Eirika's Lunar Brace glow
in answer to the sacred Stone.
With the power of their bracelets,
the twins can now change classes.▼

Do you want Ephraim to change
classes now?
→Yes   No

Yesを選んだ場合

その場でクラスチェンジする。

Noを選んだ場合

(Got a Solar Brace)
Ephraim got the Solar Brace.
He can use it to
change classes.▼

Do you want Eirika to change
classes now?
→Yes   No

Yesを選んだ場合

その場でクラスチェンジする。

Noを選んだ場合

(Got a Lunar Brace)
Eirika got the Lunar Brace.
She can use it to
change classes.▼

Eirika:
I can't believe the bracelets
contain so much power...▼
Ephraim:
I wonder if Father anticipated all of this
long ago.▼
When I was growing up, I never though
about becoming king.▼
I only wanted to be a good soldier, a good
warrior. The best on the battlefield.▼
Father never understood what I wanted,
but...I never understood him, either.▼
Eirika:
......▼
Ephraim:
It was the same when Grado
invaded Renais.▼
I should have stayed home
to defend the kingdom...▼
Instead, I raced off to
fight for personal glory.▼
Eirika:
Brother...▼
I don't think you know how well
Father understood your feelings.▼
When I last saw him, he was concerned
for nothing but our safety...▼
Seth:
Eirika is correct. King Fado asked
after your exploits every day.▼
He always told me what a fine king
you would one day make.▼
Ephraim:
Father...▼
Seth:
Now Prince Ephraim, Princess Eirika.
Please follow me.▼
The Sacred Twins of Renais should be
near the stone's reliquary.▼
Seth:
Ah, here we go. This lance can only
be one of the Sacred Twins of Renais.▼
Please, Prince Ephraim, take this
sacred relic and feel its weight.▼
Ephraim:
So this is one of our Sacred Twin
relics, is it? I've never seen them.▼
Look, there's a name inscribed here.▼
Siegmund, the Flame Lance.▼
(Got Siegmund)
Seth:
And this blade is sister to the lance,
the other Sacred Twin of legend.▼
Princess Eirika, if you would?▼
Eirika:
Of course.▼
There's a name carved here as well.▼
Sieglinde, the Thunder Blade...▼
(Got Sieglinde)
Ephraim:
These are the ancient weapons of our
forefathers--the weapons of heroes.▼
They were enshrined generations ago,
to be used only by the king...▼
I don't know if this is a burden
I'm capable of bearing...▼
But I do know that this is no time
to curse my fate.▼
I will fight. For my father, for my
country, and for my people.▼
L'Arachel:
What is happening? Have you
found the Sacred Stone?▼
Ephraim:
We found it. Here it is.▼
L'Arachel:
Wow! It truly is spectacular.▼
This goes some way to brighten the
dark shadows that loom over us.▼
Innes:
Our countries' Sacred Stones have
been shattered by Grado's men.▼
The Stone of Renais is our last
remaining weapon.▼
L'Arachel:
No, it's not. You have forgotten
the Stone of my beloved Rausten.▼
Remember, there were five Sacred
Stones for our five nations.▼
The Stones of Grado, Frelia, and
Jehanna are gone, but hope is not.▼
We have the Stone of Renais, after
all, and that of Rausten is safe.▼
Our road is clear, my friends.
I must guide you to Rausten.▼
Ephraim:
Lead the way, L'Arachel.▼
L'Arachel:
Of course. And you will all be
welcome to stay in the palace.▼
