Support level C

Gerik
Hey Prince!
How's it going?▼
Innes
Gerik...▼
I'm sorry you had to see
that ugly side of me.▼
Gerik
Huh? What do you mean?▼
Innes
At Renvall, when you stayed by me.▼
If not for your loyalty, I would have fallen
into the hands of those mercenaries.▼
Gerik
Ah, well, that's my job, innit?▼
But what's your point? This
is unlike you, Prince.▼
Innes
I've guided men into battle countless
times before that day.▼
I've always tried to be a model commander,
to guide others by my example.▼
But...I found that many of my soldiers
wanted a less severe example to follow.▼
Gerik
Ha ha ha...▼
Innes
But you're different. I've known
that from the day we first met.▼
How do you stay so composed in
the heat of the battle?▼
Gerik
I don't know how to answer that...▼
I suppose it's just in my nature.▼
Long discussions on the battlefield,
however are not. Let's go already.▼
Innes
Ahh...▼

Support level B

Innes
Nice work, Gerik...▼
I see the desert tiger is
still as fierce as ever.▼
Gerik
I can't believe my skill with the blade
is known in circles as high as yours.▼
Let me tell you, I didn't get into this
line of work because I like fighting.▼
It was a twist of fate that started
me in this path...▼
Innes
Really? But I've heard of your fame
from no less a person than my father.▼
He tells me your name was once known
from shore to shore on this continent.▼
Gerik
The past is the past. I was just
doing what I had to.▼
If I hadn't, I never would have
survived.▼
But there's something about combat
that doesn't agree with my nature.▼
Innes
If that's the case, then why are
you with these mercenaries?▼
Gerik
Ahh... The answer is so simple,
you'll probably laugh.▼
Back when I was a kid, a friend from my
village said he wanted to be a mercenary.▼
He said he was going to be famous, the
greatest warrior in all the land.▼
No matter how many times I told him to
give it up, he wouldn't listen to me.▼
Well, one day, he left for Jehanna.▼
I didn't know what else to do so I went
with him and joined the guild, too.▼
Stupid reason, isn't it? Anyway...▼
I didn't particularly like fighting, and
while I wasn't opposed to the money,▼
I certainly wasn't in it for fame...▼
I just couldn't let my friend go off
and get killed.▼
Innes
And where is this friend now?▼
Gerik
He went off and got killed.▼
Innes
I see...▼
Gerik
So there was no reason for me to
continue being a mercenary...▼
But then there were other men who I
considered to be my friends.▼
I couldn't bring myself to abandon them...
And so the years passed and here I am.▼
The thing is I can't stand to see my
friends die.▼
But you're in this business long enough,
people around you get killed. It happens.▼
The only thing you can do is keep moving
forward and try not to think about it.▼
So... Yes, I'd have a problem if you
got yourself killed.▼
I've got no place else to go, and I'm tired
of trying to forget.▼
Innes
Hmph...
Do you really think I'd lose so easily?▼
It won't do for you to underestimate me.▼
Gerik
Oh, uh ... Right.▼

Support level A

Innes
Gerik.▼
Gerik
Eh?▼
Innes
There's something I've always assumed
to be true...▼
Those born to royalty can't show
others any weaknesses or deficiencies.▼
If they're not perfect at all times, their
enemies will take advantage of them.▼
Gerik
Yeah? So?▼
Innes
But meeting you has made me rethink
that belief.▼
My father told me before I left that
I should watch you and learn from you.▼
At that time, I believed that there was
nothing a mercenary could teach me.▼
Now I know better. I am thankful to both
my father and you.▼
Gerik
That's enough of that. In my opinion,
you're much finer than I could ever be.▼
The way you live, your manners and your
bearing... I could never pull it off.▼
Innes
Me? What do you mean?▼
Gerik
Look at you! You're full of confidence.
You're got pride.▼
When I first met you, I thought,
"What a high-handed dandy."▼
Innes
Did you just call me...a dandy?▼
Gerik
But that's just who you are.▼
Being proud is not always
a bad thing.▼
You must have worked yourself near to
death to preserve that pride.▼
What I mean is that you never make
excuses for losing or being beaten up.▼
No matter the pain you face or hardship,
you keep fighting to honor that pride.▼
It's what defines you, and I can't
say that I don't admire it.▼
Innes
It comes naturally.
I will be king one day, and I will make
Frelia the greatest nation in all the world.▼
It will be a wonderful kingdom of wealth
and power.▼
When that day comes, I will command you
to become general and lead Frelia's armies.▼
No, I'll have you come and ask me to
make you general.▼
Gerik
Ha ha ha! I can't wait!▼
