A New Journey

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(新たなる旅立ち )。

セレフィユ

Eirika:
......▼
Ephraim:
What is it, Eirika?▼
Eirika:
I was thinking about Lyon.▼
The last time we saw him was
a year and a half ago...▼
Ephraim:
You're right.
It was at Grado Keep.▼
...Has it really been only a
year and a half?
Eirika:
Ephraim! Lyon!▼
Where are you two?▼
Lyon (Offscreen):
We're over here, Eirika.▼
You'd better be quick. Epraim
says he's tired of waiting.▼
Eirika:
Oh, please, I'm sure you could
wait a few moments longer...▼
Ephraim:
You're late. How does it take you so long
to prepare for such a simple trip?▼
Lyon:
Rest easy, Ephraim. There's no need
to be so curt with your own sister.▼
After all, a king must learn to treat
women with honor and discretion.▼
That's what Father MacGregor says.▼
Eirika:
Thank you, Lyon. You, unlike my dear
brother, are a true gentleman.▼
I was up far too late thinking about
my prayer to the temple flame last night.▼
And I'm afraid I...I overslept...▼
Ephraim:
Your prayer? What are
you babbling about?▼
Lyon:
Come now, you know that the flame has been
burning since the time of darkness ended.▼
You must know the story that the flame
will answer the prayers of any pilgrim!▼
Ephraim:
Really? I didn't know that...▼
Eirika:
Oh, Ephraim... Father MacGregor is going to
scold you for neglecting your studies so.▼
Ephraim:
...Don't even joke about that.▼
So tell us, what have you decided to
pray for, Eirika?▼
Ephraim:
I, uh...▼
It's a secret.▼
Ephraim:
I should've known.
You're so boring.▼
Lyon:
Well, how about you, Ephraim?▼
Ephraim:
Me? Let's see...▼
I guess I'll pray to become
a stronger fighter.▼
Lyon:
That's just like you, Ephraim.▼
Eirika:
Just like you indeed, Brother.▼
Ephraim:
...I can never tell if you're
complimenting me or mocking me.▼
Lyon:
Praising you, of course!
Right, Eirika?▼
Eirika:
Hee hee...
Yes, that's right.▼
Ephraim:
And you, Lyon?
What will you pray for?▼
Lyon:
What? Me?▼
Hm...▼
I suppose all I really want is
for all our people to be happy.▼
Ephraim:
...That's very, uh...▼
That's very much like you.▼
Eirika:
Very much so, Lyon.▼
Lyon:
...Now, I'm the one who cannot tell
if he's being praised or...▼
Ephraim:
You're being praised, as always, Lyon.▼
Eirika:
Tell me, why the sudden decision to visit
the temple?▼
Did my brother do something again?▼
Ephraim:
Now listen, you...▼
Lyon:
Oh no. It's now what Ephraim's done.
It's what he hasn't done.▼
He's learned nothing at all about the
sacred Stones and the temple flame, so...▼
Ephraim:
Father MacGregor became angry.▼
He said "One destined to become
king and rule over a nation...▼
must know the history of his kingdom
and must respect the Sacred Stones."▼
Ever since I came to Grado, my life has
been chastisement and castigation.▼
Father MacGregor does not think me
to be altogether too...kingly.▼
Lyon:
And yet General Duessel has nothing
but praise for you, Ephraim.▼
He says you've brave and true, that
you've the making of a great king.▼
Ephraim:
A great king?▼
I honestly have no idea what that means.▼
Eirika should succeed the throne.▼
I would be happy simply taking my lance
and traveling the land as a mercenary.▼
Eirika:
Ephraim, that is nothing but foolish,
irresponsible romanticism!▼
Do you realize how much your words would
fill Father's heart with grief?▼
Ephraim:
Are we speaking of the same man? Our
father will likely outlive us all.▼
For now, I'm content just learning
the lance from General Duessel.▼
What about you, Lyon? Is there
anything you want to do?▼
Lyon:
Me? Well, I...▼
I suppose I want to become
like my father.▼
Eirika:
You were born to be the Emperor
of Grado, Lyon. It suits you.▼
Lyon:
No, I don't think so.
I'm not--▼
One thing I do know from watching my
father is that being emperor is hard.▼
Every day, he answers the complains of the
people, and he almost never sleeps...▼
My father is always so very tired...▼
I hope one day that...
I hope that I can help him.▼
Eirika:
Lyon... You are so honorable.
You should learn from him, Brother.▼
Ephraim:
...Again with your criticism!▼
Tell me, Eirika. What say you to dressing
like me and becoming king in my stead?▼
You're so skinny, I doubt anyone would
notice you're not really a man.▼
Lyon:
Ha ha ha...▼
Eirika:
Ephraim!▼
Eirika:
What do you suppose Lyon is doing now?▼
When Emperor Vigarde ordered the invasion...
How do you think Lyon felt?▼
Ephraim:
He's always been so gentle, but he worships
his father. He's never question him.▼
But the emperor... He's clearly not
behaving rationally.▼
I just hope he's not so far gone that
he'd hurt his own flesh and blood.▼
Eirika:
I just pray for the day when the three
of us can be together once again.▼
Ephraim:
It'll come. I've no doubt...▼

フレリア王宮

Tana:
Ephraim! Eirika!
Welcome!▼
The two of you returning together,
it's like a dream come true.▼
You must know, I've prayed every
day for your safe return.▼
Eirika:
I'm so happy to see you, Tana.▼
Ephraim:
I'm sorry, Tana. I didn't
want for you to worry.▼
Tana:
Oh, it doesn't matter now...▼
All that really matters is that
we've been brought together again.▼
My own brother will soon return
from the field.▼
It will be nice to sit down and
discuss things again.▼
Soldier:
Princess Tana!▼
Prince Innes has returned
from the front!▼
Tana:
Welcome home, dear brother!▼
I'm so happy to see you return
safe and sound!▼
Innes:
You didn't expect less, did you?▼
Did you thin Grado's slugs could
touch me?▼
With my bow, I'll take down every Grado
soldier form here to the emperor's palace!▼
Ephraim:
Well met, Innes.▼
Innes:
...Ephraim.▼
Eirika:
It's good to see you, Prince Innes.▼
Innes:
...They say Renais has fallen.▼
I believe I warned you before.▼
This happened because you provided
Grado the opportunity to strike.▼
Tana:
Brother! Mind your tongue! This is
no occasion for such harsh words.▼
Ephraim and Eirika have lost their
father to this terrible war...▼
Innes:
......▼
I'm sorry to hear of
your father's death.▼
Hear me, Ephraim.▼
Our most important task is to
defeat Grado and end this war.▼
Tana:
Oh, Innes...▼
I'm sorry, Eirika, Ephraim.▼
Ephraim:
It's all right. It's comforting to see that,
in all of this, at least he hasn't changed.▼
Innes has hated me for as long as
I can remember.▼
Tana:
My brother looks upon you as a
rival, Ephraim.▼
And as you know, he wants to be
the best at everything.▼
The best king, the best general,
the best fighter, the best man...▼
He won't allow himself to be
beaten at anything...▼
Iness (Offscreen):
Tana, you talk too much.▼
Innes:
...My father would like both of you
to sit with him in a war council.▼
Will you come with me to take part
in your official audience?▼
Ephraim:
Yes, of course.▼
There's much that I have
to tell him.▼
Eirika:
It will be out honor to attend.▼
Innes:
This way.▼
Hayden:
It does my heart good to see you all
here safely within our castle walls.▼
...Would that we had more time for
pleasantries, but...let us hear your news.▼
Innes:
Very well, I will begin.▼
I've directed the body of Frelia's army
south to engage Grado directly.▼
Our troop are proving themselves superior,
and the battle progresses favorably.▼
Hayden:
Hmm...▼
But the riddle still
needs answering.▼
Why did Grado begin this
war in the first place?▼
Eirika:
Your Majesty, we may well have found
something relating to that...▼
We learned something on our travels,
news that weighs heavily upon us.▼
Hayden:
Ah, yes. Our messanger delivered
your report to us a few days ago.▼
Grado is trying to destroy the
Sacred Stones... Is that it?▼
Eirika:
Yes.▼
Hayden:
We've strengthened the tower's defenses.
Frelia's stone is safe for the time being.▼
But we remain confused in this.▼
What does Grado hope to gain by
destroying the Sacred Stones?▼
Eirika:
We don't know. The legends say the stones
protect us all from the power of darkness.▼
Ephraim:
...I can't say if it relates, but
I have a story about Grado.▼
It's...been troubling me, and I would
like to share it with you all.▼
Myrrh. Come here, please.▼
Myrrh (Offscreen):
Yes?▼
Hayden:
Who's this girl?▼
Eirika:
On her back... Wings?▼
Ephraim, who is she?▼
Ephraim:
This is Myrrh. I met here while
fighting in Grado territory.▼
Myrrh, would you please tell everyone
here the story you told me?▼
Myrrh:
......▼
...Please, Ephraim, you tell them.▼
Ephraim:
She's a bit shy.▼
Very well. Myrrh tells me that she belongs
to an ancient race of dragon folk.▼
They're mentioned in a few legends.
They're called the tribe of Manakete.▼
Eirika:
Manakete?▼
Hayden:
Yes, their name appears several times
in the tale of the Sacred Stones.▼
It says they were neither human nor
demon but a separate, aloof race.▼
Ephraim:
Please, Myrrh.▼
Myrrh:
......▼
We live in the east...in Darkling Woods.▼
One day...▼
Eirika:
Yes?▼
Myrrh:
We felt something.▼
An ominous energy to the south.▼
Ephraim:
From the direction of Grado.▼
They felt a...force flowing
out of the Grado Empire.▼
Myrrh:
Saleh and I...
We went to investigate this energy.▼
But on our way down, we came across a battle
and were drawn into the conflict.▼
Ephraim:
Myrrh got lost and was wandering aimlessly
in an isolated region near Grado's border.▼
Myrrh:
I met some wicked folk there. They
deceived and enchained me.▼
They stole my dragonstone. They
were preparing me for transport.▼
It was in that moment when Ephraim
appeared and rescued me.▼
Eirika:
......▼
Ephraim:
I stumbled across Myrrh by chance
when Grado's men had ambushed us.▼
Everything she told me seemed
beyond belief, and yet...▼
And yet, when I saw her wings,
what could I do but believe?▼
Myrrh:
This dark wave of energy still
flows from the southlands.▼
Its current is strong and runs deep.
It has awakened the evil ones.▼
I want to stop it.▼
Hayden:
Hmmm......▼
Soldier:
Your Majesty! I bring word!▼
Hayden:
What is so urgent you would
interrupt a private council?▼
Soldier:
The tower holding the Sacred Stone
of Frleia...▼
It's been destroyed by the Grado Army!▼
Hayden:
What? That's impossible!▼
What of the soldiers on watch?
There were supposed to be many...▼
Soldier:
The enemy forces...▼
They were led by Caellach the
Tiger Eye and Selena Fluorspar!▼
Our soldiers fell before even
half a day had past!▼
Seth:
Selena Fluorspar...▼
Only General Duessel is higher
in Emperor Vigarde's esteem...▼
She's the one.▼
Hayden:
She came personally...▼
So they really do wish to see
the Sacred Stones destroyed.▼
Blast...▼
Caellach:
Hah! So this hunk of rock is
a Sacred Stone, eh?▼
So much fuss over something
as fragile as this.▼
Watch.
It crumbles so easily.▼
Do we gain anything by this?
Not that I care, but...▼
Frelia Soldier:
Black-hearted...fool...
What have...you...done?▼
Without the stone's...protection...
the horrors...will spread...▼
Caellach:
Huh? What's this?
Still breathing, are you?▼
Come. If you've any last words,
I'll hear them, fool of Frelia.▼
Frelia Soldier:
You...monster...▼
Caellach:
You waste your last words on insults?
And feeble ones, at that...▼
Hardly the right note to enter the eternal
on, wouldn't you say? Well then, die.▼
Selena:
Hold!▼
What are you doing, Caellach?! Our
job was to destroy the Sacred Stone.▼
Caellach:
I know that. And I crushed
it, did I not?▼
But if we don't clean up these
Frelian curs, they might--▼
Selena:
You do not raise your blade to anyone
who is powerless to resist you!▼
The emperor does not desire us to kill
without cause! That would be murder!▼
Caellach:
Right, the emperor...▼
Your name's Selena, ain't it?▼
Tell me, Selena. What makes that pasty-
faced old fool's word so important?▼
Selena:
Wretch... Do you dare insult
His Imperial Majesty!?▼
Caellach:
Hey, hey, I'm joking.
Don't get so worked up.▼
I get it now. You're a true
and loyal soldier.▼
I'm leaving before Frelia
sends reinforcements. Coming?▼
Selena:
......▼
Hayden:
How could this happen...▼
How could I have allowed our
Sacred Stone to be destroyed?▼
Dark energies from the empire's capital...
Evil monstrosities roaming our lands...▼
Vigarde's mad invasion... And now that,
the destruction of our sacred talisman.▼
And we have no idea of Grado's goals.
We are in the dark times once again.▼
But even so, we cannot sit here,
wringing our hands.▼
First, we must warn the nations that
house the remaining Sacred Stones.▼
If Vigarde seeks to destroy the Stones,
they are all in grave danger.▼
Jehanna and Rausten must be warned.▼
The nations must joined together to
fight our common foe.▼
Eirika:
Do you think they will believe us?▼
Hayden:
Hm...▼
It is a difficult tale to
believe, I must agree.▼
Innes:
I will go, Father.▼
Hayden:
Innes?▼
Innes:
A direct visit from the Prince of Frealia
is not something they can ignore.▼
I will travel to Jehanna, where I will
forge an alliance with her queen.▼
If our Sacred Stone has been destroyed,
the Frelia could be in greater danger.▼
Father, I cannot let you leave the nation
in such a time of crisis.▼
It is imperative that I be the one to go.▼
Hayden:
Hmmm...▼
Eirika:
And I will head for Rausten.▼
Ephraim:
Eirika?▼
You know I can't let you put
yourself in such danger.▼
Eirika:
Rest easy, dear brother.▼
I will journey to Rausten by ship across
the North Sea. There will be no danger.▼
And I have made a vow.▼
I will fight as you have until
the day Renais is liberated.▼
Ephraim:
...I understand.▼
King Hayden, I will take troops and march
on the imperial capital from the west.▼
Hayden:
The west?! Are you saying you will
begin an assault on Grado from here?▼
Ephraim:
If we can take Grado Keep, the war will
be over. The Sacred Stones will be safe.▼
If we start here and press forward with
all our might...▼
Hayden:
And once you reach the capital? Vigarde's
generals will be there waiting for you.▼
Ephraim:
If they oppose us, we will fight.▼
Hayden:
...You've got your father's
foolhardy courage, don't you?▼
...Very well.
I entrust all our hope to you three.▼
Innes, you will go to Jehanna,▼
Eirika to Rausten,▼
And Ephraim to the imperial capital.▼
Funding you will have, but of
soldiers, we have few to spare.▼
For each of you, a difficult
road awaits.▼
Ephraim:
If any of us meets with defeat, the
battle will turn to Grado's favor.▼
There must be no errors. We must not fail.▼
Innes:
Where I command, there are
no mistakes.▼
Eirika:
I have no doubts. I'll
succeed, I swear it.▼
Come, it is time to go!▼

出発

Eirika:
Farewell, Brother.
I will return.▼
Ephraim:
Mm...
To be honest, I still do
not want you to go.▼
I would rather you wait
here for my return.▼
Eirika:
Please, Ephraim...▼
I will be fine. There's no
need for you to worry.▼
Mine is the easiest task,
and I'll be in no danger.▼
I'm far more worried about
your mission.▼
Challenging the might of an
empire with a handful of men?▼
Ephraim:
What's this now? Have you
lost your faith in me?▼
Eirika:
No, of course not.▼
I know your true strength, Ephraim.
No one can defeat you.▼
Ephraim:
Ha ha! I hearing you say that
fills me with confidence.▼
I think I know my own limitations.▼
I won't overextend my reach. I can't
die and leave you on your own, can I?▼
Eirika:
Ephraim...▼
Ephraim:
Let us both survive to be reunited.▼
Give me your word, Eirika.▼
Eirika:
You have it, Brother.▼

Eirika and Ephraim will now part ways.
Which of them will you accompany?

Go with Eirika to Rausten.
Go with Ephraim to Grado.

Kyle:
Princess Eirika!▼
Forde:
Is your departure time near?▼
Eirika:
Yes.▼
Kyle, Forde, I'm traveling
to Rausten.▼
I ask that you two serve
my brother well.▼
Forde:
Actually, there's been a
slight change of plans.▼
Kyle:
We're going with you, Your Highness.▼
Eirika:
What?
But...▼
Kyle:
Prince Ephraim rides with
Frelia's finest at his back.▼
Forde:
And this was a personal order
from the prince himself.▼
He said, "I don't need you loading
around here. Go and keep Eirika safe."▼
Since when is battling all of Grado
loading about? Honestly!▼
Eirika:
You're right! My brother's mission
is far more dangerous than mine.▼
I will go and speak with him...▼
Kyle:
Princess Eirika.▼
Prince Ephraim said he's not
concerned for his own safety.▼
These are the words our prince gave
us, and we believe he means them.▼
Forde:
That's the truth of it.▼
There's no cause for worry, Princess Eirika.
We can all attest to the prince's tenacity.▼
No matter how close death comes, the Pale
Horse will not catch him.▼
Eirika:
...Kyle, Forde...▼
I understand. Thank you for your
service and bravery.▼
You are my brother's most trusted
and most valiant companions.▼
I would be honored to have you
ride at my side.▼
Kyle:
The honor is ours.▼
We ride for Renais and
for Princess Eirika!▼
Forde:
Let's not work ourselves into
a frenzy right now.▼
When the time comes, I will
be there to handle things.▼
Eirika:
Of course. I'm depending
on both of you.▼

Seth:
Prince Ephraim.▼
Ephraim:
Is that you, Seth?
I'm almost ready to depart.▼
I'm leaving Eirika in your care.▼
Seth:
Actually, milord...▼
We have the honor of
riding with you.▼
Ephraim:
What?▼
What about Eirika?▼
Seth:
The princess informs me that she will
be accompanied by a Frelian escort.▼
She tells me she does not need a
large retinue on such a small ship.▼
Ephraim:
I understand, but we must be
prepared for anything.▼
I will be fine, Seth. Please
go and attend Eirika.▼
Seth:
Lord Ephraim, this is Lady Eirika's wish.▼
She implored us to lend our blades to you
on the front lines...▼
She spoke to each of us individually. She
knelt before us and beseeched us to go.▼
Her sincerity, her concern... We could
not help but be moved by her plea.▼
Ephraim:
Oh, Eirika...▼
Very well. You will all
come with me.▼
But steel yourselves. This will
not be an easy journey.
I want only volunteers who are
unafraid of meeting death.▼
Seth:
I'll let the others know.▼
I must tell you, milord--they are
already preparing to depart.▼
They know the risks they are taking,
and not a one will be deterred.▼
