Ch.17: River of Regrets

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17章:決別の大河)。

ワールドマップ

The Sacred Stones that defeated the Demon
King radiate a constant and dazzling light.▼
The Sacred Stones are the only power against
the dark, the last hope of humanity.▼
It is only natural that evil would seek
to destroy the Sacred Stones...▼
There can be no other force behind this
attempt to gain the stones.▼
A childhood friend appears before Ephraim.▼

オープニング

Ephraim:
How do you intend to use the
Sacred Stone, Lyon?▼
Do you really think you can
tap into its power?▼
Lyon:
Mm.. My research isn't complete yet,
but there's no mistaking the power▼
the Sacred Stones contain.▼
And the Stone of Grado seems especially
responsive to my dark magic.▼
I suppose it's because it contains
both sacred and demonic properties.▼
Regardless, if I can just press
my studies a little harder...▼
Well, I think I might be able to use
it to heal my father's illness.▼
If that works, there's no telling how
many other people I can help as well.▼
Eirika:
Do you think this is wise?▼
The power contained within the stones
is beyond our understanding...▼
My father tells me that the stones
possess a power not to be trifled with.▼
Lyon:
Uh-huh...
Father Macgregor is also against it.▼
That's why they still won't give me
direct access to the Stone of Grado.▼
For the time being, I've made do with
the radiant energies surrounding it.▼
They're nothing compared to the raw
power of the stone itself, but...▼
If I can show Father MacGregor some
real progress, perhaps one day...▼
Ephraim:
Using the Sacred Stones to
study magic...▼
Lyon:
Ephraim, Eirika, what do you
two think?▼
Using the divine power of the
Sacred Stones in this way...▼
You don't think it's a very
good idea, do you?▼
Ephraim:
...It's just that I know nothing
at all of magic.▼
I would that there were some way I
could help you, but I simply can't.▼
But, Lyon, I've seen how hard you've
worked to help others.▼
I know how much you want the power
to make others happy.▼
I know these things, and because I
know you, I trust your intentions.▼
Lyon:
Ephraim...▼
Ephraim:
If you hope to use the power of the
Sacred Stone for good, I trust you can.▼
I'm behind you all the way.▼
Eirika:
I agree with Ephraim entirely.▼
You spend every night in the library,
studying cures for your father's illness.▼
The power of the Sacred Stones is too
powerful to be used for personal gain.▼
But you, Lyon... I think you'll be
fine. You're the kindest person I know.▼
Lyon:
Thanks, both of you.▼
Hearing those words from you means a
lot to me.▼
Actually--and this hasn't been made
public yet--but...▼
I've already saved someone using the
knowledge I've gleaned so far.▼
Ephraim:
You have?▼
Lyon:
Uh-huh...▼
A while back, a fire ravaged Serafew, and
a little girl got trapped in the flames.▼
Her burns were terrible: not even healing
staves were able to cure her injuries.▼
But just a sliver of the stone's power
restored her life and healed her wounds.▼
We saved that girl's life, Ephraim!▼
Oh, if you could have seen the tears
of joy in her mother's eyes!▼
Ephraim:
You really did it, huh?
You are special, Lyon.▼
Congratulations!▼
Lyon:
Well...thanks. But there's still so
much more to be done.▼
I am happy, though. To be honest, I
just want to be able to help people.▼
I want to put the ancient magics to
use for the common good...▼
That's how I feel.▼
Eirika:
Lyon...▼
Lyon:
And as my research moves forward,
I'll be able to do much more, too.▼
We have only the barest understanding
of how dark magic operates.▼
Maybe we can use it not only to heal
wounds, but also to stop diseases...▼
What if we can read the futures,
predict disasters, move mountains!?▼
Eirika:
Hold on, Lyon. You can't take too
much on yourself all at once.▼
What good is helping people if
you sacrifice yourself to do it?▼
Lyon:
Oh... Yes, of course. Sorry.
I got carried away.▼
Ephraim:
You have a soft heart, Lyon.▼
I bet you haven't taken any
real time off at all.▼
So this is what we're going to do.
Today, we're going into the city.▼
And you're going with us, Lyon.▼
Lyon:
What?▼
But, Ephraim, you've got a
history report due.▼
Ephraim:
We're taking today off.
C'mon, let's go.▼
Lyon:
Bu-But, Ephraim...▼
Eirika:
It's just one day, and I won't tell
anyone.▼
Won't it be fun for the three of us
to spend a day in the city?▼
Lyon:
Ephraim, Eirika...▼
Thanks so much.▼
I've lucky to have the
two of you as friends.▼
Ephraim:
We have the Stone of Renais.▼
The final Sacred Stone is in Rausten.▼
Eirika:
L'Arachel, can you tell us anything
about the Stone of Rausten?▼
L'Arachel:
Naturally! As Rausten's very own princess,
I know a think or two about our stone.▼
The palace reliquary currently houses
our Sacred Stone.▼
Follow me, and I'll take you there.▼
Innes:
I sent the Frelian army ahead before
us. They should be en route to Rausten.▼
If we hurry, we can join up with them
at the banks of the Narube River.▼
Frelian Soldier:
Do not falter! Show them
thee might of Frelia!▼
Girl:
Lady S-Syrene...
The enemy is headed this way.▼
Syrene:
Are you serious?▼
Grado's been defeated, and still
they fight on? And they're tough.▼
Old man:
You Frelian fools have been wiped
out by those guys...▼
Oh, no...
Now we're finished as well.▼
Syrene:
Everyone, please remain calm.▼
If you panic and flee, the enemy
will simply surround you.▼
If you remain here and don't move,
I promise to protect you all.▼
Girl:
Lady Syrene...▼
Eirika:
Brother! Look there!▼
Ephraim:
A skirmish!▼
Innes:
Is that Syrene?▼
What's going on? We
must go to her aid.▼
L'Arachel:
Everyone, hold! Something
evil is afoot...▼
Evil Lyon:
......▼
Ephraim:
Lyon?!▼
Evil Lyon:
Eirika...
Ephraim...▼
Eirika:
Lyon...
Where have you been all this...▼
Ephraim:
Eirika, stop!▼
Eirika:
Brother?▼
Ephraim:
Lyon...▼
We met recently in
Grado Keep, right?▼
Do you remember what
you told me then?▼
Evil Lyon:
......▼
Of course I remember.▼
What of it?▼
Ephraim:
You...▼
Evil Lyon:
I can repeat it for you now if you
would like.▼
The ruin of Renais? The murder of
your father?▼
It was all my doing. I, Lyon,
prince of Grado, made it happen.▼
Eirika:
Lyon...▼
You lie! That can't be...▼
Ephraim:
Don't be fooled, Eirika.▼
Keep your guard up.
That's not Lyon.▼
Evil Lyon:
......▼
What amusing things come babbling
out of your mouth.▼
You always thought of Lyon as king,
gentle, and weak, didn't you? Admit it.▼
Ephraim:
No!
Lyon, Eirika, and I were friends.▼
There were things we kept to ourselves,
of course, but we shared so much.▼
And no matter what happened, no matter
how much time passed...▼
We're still friends.▼
Lyon would never betray us.
Not in a million years.▼
You're not Lyon.▼
??:
...I see.▼
So I have no reason to continue
hiding my true identity, do I?▼
Ephraim:
None!▼
??:
You are correct. This body no longer
belongs to your young Lyon.▼
I devoured his pathetic heart ages ago.▼
Ephraim:
You monster! Who are you?!▼
??:
Do you really not know me?
What a poorly educated prince.▼
Think about it. Remember the
legends of your pitiful kind...▼
What was sealed within the Stone of
Grado? What is the name of terror?▼
Eirika:
No... It can't be!▼
L'Arachel:
It's as we feared after all.
That can only be...▼
Ephraim:
The great adversary of antiquity...▼
The Demon King...▼
??:
That's right. You know to
fear my name.▼
Prince Lyon was a weakling.
Now, he is dead.▼
Eirika:
That can't be...▼
??:
Prince Ephraim of Renais...
You hold a Sacred Stone. Give it to me.▼
I have no wish to see a warrior die
a pitiful death beneath my feet.▼
Bend your knee. If you pledge service
to me, I may let you live.▼
Ephraim:
Do you take me for a fool?▼
??:
You've made your choice, have you?
A poor choice...▼
But it does afford me a chance
to show you something special.▼
A force no human flesh can
withstand. A horror beyond words.▼
A power that will place this
sad world under my dominion.▼
I am the Demon King...
Behold my might.▼

Being rescued by you...
It's like a dream...▼

Syrene? I need a status report.▼
Syrene:
Oh...
Oh, yes! Please forgive me!▼
The Frelian troops we dispatched
were ambushed and decimated.▼
My squad is all that remains.▼

So many dead...▼
You can rest easy now, Syrene.

Eirika:
Please, Lyon!
You must stop!▼
I...I don't want to
fight you!▼
??:
......▼
The cries of children.▼
Away with you, insects,
if you wish not to die.▼

エフラム

Eprhraim:
Where's Lyon? What have
you done with our friend?!▼
ANSWER ME!▼
??:
......▼
Heh heh... How foolish. The
one you seek is already dead.▼
I have cast him into the abyss
from which I crawled.▼
That weakling is gone. Only
the Demon King remains!▼
Ephraim:
Grr... Monster!▼

エイリーク・リオン以外

??:
Do you challenge me? You
humans are so inconstant.▼
You've forgotten what it
is to fear me.▼

リオン撃破時

??:
Heh......▼

クリア後

??:
Not yet... I have not the strength.▼
But I am the Demon King... The world
will be mine, as it was in ancient days.▼
Injuries such as these are not enough
to stop me...▼
Ephraim:
Demon King!▼
??:
Come, Ephraim.
You should follow me.▼
If you've the strength to
defeat me, that is...▼
Ephraim:
We will not let you flee!
After him, Eirika!▼
We have to find where he's
gone. Search everywhere!▼
I can't allow him to desecrate
my friend's body any longer!▼
Innes:
Ephraim.▼
Ephraim:
Innes?▼
Innes:
There's no need to panic. The soldiers
are following Prince Lyon's trail.▼
Our trackers are excellent.
They'll know his whereabouts momentarily.▼
Ephraim:
Ah... Good point. Well made.▼
Innes:
By the way, there's something I need
to speak with you about.▼
The messanger I sent to Frelia
returned not long ago.▼
She brought a package I'd requested:
Frelia's Sacred Twins.▼
Ephraim:
You have the Sacred Twins?▼
Innes:
Yes. Frelia may have lost her
Sacred Stone...▼
However, it seems the Sacred Twin
relics remain undisturbed.▼
I had them brought here.
Behold!▼
Ephraim:
Incredible...▼
Innes:
Frelia's Sacred Twins.▼
Nidhogg, the Serpent Bow, and
Vidofnir, the Winged Lance.▼
I want you to take them.▼
Ephraim:
But these are Frelia's weapons.
You should hold on to them.▼
Innes:
No, I entrust them to you.▼
You're the leader of this army.
Use them as you will.▼
Ephraim:
Understood. I'll make sure they
wind up in worthy hands.▼
Thank you, Innes. This helps.▼
Innes:
Don't thank me.▼
We're fighting for the
same thing here: Victory.▼

(Got Nidhogg)
(Got Vidofnir)

※ナルーべの民が全員生存していた場合のみ追加

Girl:
Lady Syrene!
Thank you!▼
We all owe you our
gratitude...▼
Syrene:
No, it wasn't my doing.▼
We prevailed because of
superior leadership.▼
Ephraim:
No, I...▼
Old man:
We owe you a debt of gratitude that
can never be repaid.▼
It's not much, but please accept
this staff as a small token.▼
Girl:
And accept our thanks. We won't
forget what you've done for us.▼
