Larcei
Askr is indeed a land in crisis. I see
now that our assistance here is
sorely needed.
Wouldn't you agree, Shannan?

Shannan
I would. I believe our strength can
make an important difference here.

Ced
It is fortuitous we find ourselves in
Askr all at once. Princess Sharena,
please consider us at your disposal.

Sharena
I'm so glad to hear that. Thank you!

Altena
I've heard that Prince Leif has been
aiding you for some time. It would be
an honor to join our efforts to his.

Larcei
You won't be disappointed! After all,
we've got two divine weapons from
the 12 Crusaders of Jugdral with us.
Prince Shannan wields Balmung,
and Lady Altena, Gáe Bolg. They're
more than a match for any enemy!

Sharena
Those are some impressive names!
They even SOUND strong.

Altena
...

Shannan
The weapon does not make the
fighter, Larcei. You know that.
A master swordsman has no reason
to fear a legendary blade in the hands
of a novice.

Larcei
Don't worry. I've taken your advice to
heart, and I always stay on my toes.

Sharena
I'm looking forward to seeing both
your skills and your weapons in
action!

Altena
Let's end our training there for today.

Sharena
Phew... That was intense! Thank you!
Your lance skills are very impressive
Altena. I learned a lot.

Larcei
Your strength rivals even that of
Prince Shannan. I would expect no
less from the wielder of Gáe Bolg.

Altena
If that's all, I will take my leave.
Sharena
She left in a hurry...and she looked
distraught. Was it something we said?

Ced
It may be the tragedy of Gáe Bolg she
is preoccupied with.
Sharena
What is the tragedy of Gáe Bolg?

Ced
An old Jugdral legend.
Two of the 12 Crusaders who saved
Jugdral were sibling lancers named
Dáinn and Njörun.
Dáinn wielded the heavenly Gungnir,
while Njörun bore the earthly Gáe
Bolg—the very lance Altena carries.
It is said that Njörun killed a loved
one with Gáe Bolg, and then took
her own life.
The lance has been rumored to bring
disaster ever since.
Sharena
What an awful story. But it is just
a legend, isn't it?
Altena is more than well, isn't she?

Ced
At the moment, yes. But her father,
Prince Quan, also wielded the
Gáe Bolg...and, well...
He had it when he was killed in front
of his young daughter. And then the
weapon fell into enemy hands.
Sharena

Shannan
Yes, I am familiar with the tragedy
of Gáe Bolg. Why do you ask?

Larcei
I first thought to discard it as a myth,
but the lives the lance has destroyed
make that difficult to do.
It's common to yearn for a powerful
weapon. Less so to understand the
burden of carrying one.

Shannan
Indeed. Balmung is no different from
Gáe Bolg in that regard. I have faced
much suffering to wield it.

Larcei
Could that suffering have been a test
of your worth, somehow? A trial?

Shannan
Perhaps not literally, but I find it
helpful to think of it that way.
Balmung may be strong beyond
compare, but to think only of its
strength is to do it a disservice.
The weapons of the Crusaders are
more significant than that. Each bears
the legacy of a person of conviction.

Larcei
You're saying the weapon carries the
convictions of the Crusader who first
wielded it?

Shannan
Yes. And its inheritor is obligated to
carry those convictions forward.
To put a stop to tragedy. To fight for
a brighter future. That is the duty of
anyone who wields Balmung.

Larcei
And that sentiment has a greater
reach than any sword. I'm beginning
to understand.

Shannan
Indeed. Whatever I do with the blade,
its legacy will carry forward to the
generation that comes after me.
That is why I must live a life worthy
of those who came before me.
Only then can I pass Balmung on, in
good conscience, to the person who
will succeed me.

Larcei
Altena must feel the same way.

Shannan
Indeed, she must. But she also bears
an additional weight.
If there is anyone who can overcome
the tragedy of Gáe Bolg, it is Altena.

Larcei
Yes! Agreed!

Larcei
I used to want nothing more than to
have a legendary blade like Balmung.
Now I'm not so sure.
Prince Shannan helped me realize
that carrying a divine weapon is a
great burden. And a solemn duty.
You must have the conviction to live
up to the legacy of all those who
wielded it before you.

Altena
Well said. I was not ignorant of that
burden when I took up this lance.
In the time since, however, I've come
to understand just how daunting and
lonesome an obligation it truly is.
If my fate takes the shape of
the tragedy of Gáe Bolg, it will be up to
me alone to overcome it.
And that tragedy is not the only
weight I carry, either.
I must also think of the wish for
peace that the lance's first wielder,
Njörun, so earnestly held.

Ced
True, but you are mistaken about one
thing, Altena. You are not alone.

Shannan
He is right. No one cuts a path all on
their own. We lean on each other.

Larcei
I'm sure Prince Leif would agree.
And the people of Askr too!

Ced
It is possible, even working together,
that we might fail.
But even then, so long as we pass
our convictions on...we will have the
aid of those who succeed us also.

Altena
You're right. One day, the world will
know peace, and divine weapons like
the ones we bear can rest forever.
Until then, let us continue forward on
the path laid out before us.

Larcei
Got you now! Hyah!

Shannan
Hah—not quite.

Larcei
Ow! OK, you win... Ugh, how did you
turn that back around on me? It's like
you're in my head.
I thought my timing was perfect, but
you put me in my place with only
one move...

Shannan
Your vigor, while commendable,
makes you easy to read.
Intensity alone will not win you many
battles. Until you understand that,
I fear you are not ready.

Larcei
Not ready?! I may have lost to you
this time, but I can hold my own
against anyone.
I'm a full-fledged swordswoman—I've
been through all the training!

Shannan
The battlefield does not respect what
you've been through, Larcei. It only
respects the immediate result.

Larcei
Fine. If that is how you feel, I will
give you a better result.
Let's have a rematch one week from
now. And when I win, you will stop
treating me like a child.

Shannan
Very well. But if you lose, you will
continue to train without complaint
until you are truly ready.

Larcei
Won't happen. See you in a week.
Right, I can do this...can't I? I only
need to beat him once.
Then he'll have to recognize my skill
and let me join the others in battle...

Larcei
I've only got a week to prepare for
this rematch. I'd better train as hard
as I can until then.
Ugh, I don't even know where
to begin...

Soleil
Hi there! You're the new girl from
Jugdral, right? You look like you've
got something on your mind.
Want to talk about it? I'm Soleil, by
the way. Maybe I can help!

Larcei
Nice to meet you, Soleil. I'm Larcei.
I notice you're wearing a sword
on your hip...
It so happens I have a difficult bout
coming up. I'm not sure how to go
about preparing for it.

Soleil
No problem! I know a great place for
you to find training partners.
Come on—there's bound to be
somebody who can help you!

Larcei
This place is amazing!
Who knew there were so many other
young ladies aspiring to be masters
of the sword?

Soleil
Everyone, I'd like you to meet Larcei,
from Jugdral! She's going to join us
for training today.

Mia
Hi, Larcei! I'm Mia, from the Greil
Mercenaries. Anyone looking to get
stronger's OK by me!

Fir
I'm Fir. Nice to meet you.

Hana
And I'm Hana—a samurai of Hoshido.
We're all friends here, so you can
relax and focus on your technique.

Larcei
There is such a variety of styles
represented here. I must say,
I am a little overwhelmed.
I am sure I would learn a lot. You are
truly all right with me joining you?

Soleil
Of course! We welcome any girl who
strives to be the best she can be.
It helps that you're cute too!

Larcei
I'm not sure what that has to do with
anything, but thank you. This may be
my best hope for beating Shannan!

Soleil
Phew. How about a break? I'll get

Fir
Thank you for the training.

Larcei
Yes, thank you! This has been
extremely helpful.

Hana
With every session like this, I feel one
step closer to putting a certain
perfectionist
in his place.

Larcei
I am used to the familiarity of training
with my twin brother. The diversity
here has been eye-opening.
This may yet give me the edge I need
to catch up to Prince Shannan.

Mia
Trying to match a rival, Larcei?

Larcei
Something like that, yes. There is a
gulf of skill between us now, but I
hope someday to be his equal.

Mia
What will you do then?

Larcei
What will I...do? That's... and interesting
question. I don't know.
It feels like such a distant goal that
I've never even considered what
comes next.

Mia
Seems wasteful to me. Why tie your
potential to his?
Personally, I aim to push myself to
My absolute limit. I want to reach
for perfection!

Larcei
I hadn't thought of it that way.

Mia
Maybe your true goal will only reveal
itself after you've surpassed this rival
of yours.
You've got to keep on challenging
yourself, though. You don't want
to get complacent!

Soleil
Absolutely right. You can't ever rest
on your laurels.
I mean, look at how many cute girls
there are in Askr alone.
And with limitless worlds come
limitless cuties!
Could you imagine if I contented
myself with just a few of those girls?
No way—I've got to meet them all!

Fir
That is, um...an interesting view...

Hana
Ha! Don't get greedy now, Soleil!

Larcei
Don't...get complacent.
Right. That's an important lesson.

Larcei
Agh! So close... But I've lost again...
Somehow your swordwork is even
better than it was before.
I thought for certain I could best you.

Shannan
You made a valiant effort. Had I not
reconsidered my own technique,
you may very well have won.

Larcei
As you said, however, what matters
is the result. I will continue to train
with you, as promised.

Shannan
In terms of raw strength and skill,
Larcei, you are more than ready
for the battlefield.
What you need to temper now is your
heart. You must study patience,
resolve, and discipline.
Hone those as well as you've honed
your sword technique, and you will
be a force to be reckoned with.

Larcei
I will!
Someday, Prince Shannan, I will
surpass even you.
How's that for resolve?! See you
in the next bout—and the bout
after that! Farewell!
...
Prince Shannan... You may be ahead
of me for now, But I will not give up.
Whatever it takes to become your
equal, to best you in the end...
Mark my words, I'll do it!

Anna
So, you want me to introduce you to
other talented swordsmen?

Shannan
Precisely. No one is more familiar
with the Heroes' skills than you.
If possible, I'd like to meet someone
whose style is truly unique.

Anna
A unique style... Sure, I can make
that happen.
In fact, I know just the right person.
Come on—I think he's training in the
eastern forest as we speak...

Shannan
You must be Owain, wielder of the
blade Missiletainn. I am Shannan, of
Isaach. It is an honor to...

Owain
Say no more. The raging spirit of your
divine blade. That hungry gleam in
your eye. I understand completely.
You've come seeking an opponent
worthy of your sword.

Shannan
Balmung has yet to leave its sheath,
and already you see its nature.
Commander Anna's praise was apt.
I hope you are as powerful as you
are perceptive.

Owain
Ha! Much more! If I could gaze into
the depths of my own forbidden
power, I would lose my mind!
Only one living mortal can fathom
what I am capable of...and only
because he is so much like me.

Honor me with a match, then?

Owain
If you still wish to face me, knowing
what you know... Suit yourself, but
I will hold nothing back.

Shannan
Nor I.

Owain

Shannan

Owain
Ugh! Ooooh! No... Come on...
Not now...

Shannan
Are you unwell?

Owain
It's...Missiletainn... The dark power
is...too much...
If I draw this blade, I...won't be able
to stop... I'll slay every Hero in the
castle... Ugh!

Shannan
Take a moment. Settle yourself.
Does your sword truly hold that
kind of power?

Owain
Sorry, Shannan, but this match will
have to wait until... Ngh! Be still now,
sword hand!
I cannot allow this blade to seize my
destiny... Farewell, for now!

Shannan
...
Power corrupts, as they say. If I fail
to be cautious, that could just as well
be me.
I must be mindful not to let Balmung
overmaster me in the same way...

Ryoma
Yes, I am Ryoma of Hoshido, wielder
of Raijinto.
I've heard you are the bearer of the
divine blade, Balmung.
I would consider it an honor to cross
swords with you.

Shannan
You and your weapon seem to exist
in perfect harmony. My search for
the ideal opponent may be at an end.

Ryoma
On your guard, then! Hyah!

Shannan
That's enough... We'll call it a draw.
It has been a long time indeed since
I have faced such a worthy opponent.

Ryoma
The same to you. I have learned
a great deal today.

Shannan
Raijinto is a sight to behold.
With every strike, I could feel the
sword's history and significance.

Ryoma
It's been an heirloom in Hoshido's
royal family for generations.
What you sensed was the will of my
ancestors driving the blade.
It is the same with Balmung, is it not?

Shannan
It is.

Ryoma
Raijinto was passed down to me by
Sumeragi, Hoshido's previous king
and my father.
My inheritance is not merely the
sword, but also his will within it.

Shannan
The sparks that issue forth from it
are a manifestation of that will,
it seems.

Ryoma
Yes. And because Raijinto carries this
legacy, I must continually strive to be
worthy of receiving it.
For the sake of my siblings, and all
those I seek to protect, my weapon
and I must remain in harmony.

Shannan
I must say, Ryoma. I feel a certain
kinship with you.
I, too, have inherited a weapon with
a significant legacy...
Seeing as we have this in common,
I would be much obliged if we could
continue to practice together.

Ryoma
It would be my pleasure, Shannan.

Yah! Hyah!

Hah! Almost!

Larcei
Agh! So close... But I've lost again...

Shannan
You managed to put me off balance,
however briefly. You should consider
that a victory.
Despite my training with Ryoma, you
were closer to winning now than
a week ago.

Larcei
I thought for certain I could best you.

Shannan
You made a valiant effort. Had I not
reconsidered my own technique,
you may very well have won.

Larcei
As you said, however, what matters
is the result. I will continue to train
with you, as promised.

Shannan
In terms of raw strength and skill,
Larcei, you are more than ready
for the battlefield.
What you need to temper now is your
heart. You must study patience,
resolve, and discipline.
Hone those as well as you've honed
your sword technique, and you will
be a force to be reckoned with.

Larcei
I will!
Someday, Prince Shannan, I will
surpass even you.
How's that for resolve?! See you
in the next bout—and the bout
after that! Farewell!

Shannan
Always in a hurry, that one...
Larcei... I hope that you and Scáthach
truly become strong.
The blood of great swordsmen runs
in our veins. We must live up to that
noble legacy.
We must develop our gifts, use them
to protect the ones we care about,
and pass that legacy on.
For the sake of the next generation,
let us all aspire to achieve the very
height of swordsmanship...

The tale of your valor is well-known
here in Askr, Ced.
Unable to turn from those in need,
you stood against a powerful foe.
They call you the Hero on the Wind.

Ced
A lofty moniker that does not suit me.
I am no hero.

Alfonse
From what I've heard of your deeds,
you more than earned it.

Ced
I have earned no more than any of
those who suffered in that tragedy.
And if I had, I would discard it. A title
like that is too heavy a burden.

Ced
It is true that I once fought for the
people of Munster.
But that was more a matter of
circumstance than anything else.
Their plight was not what brought me
there. I had only been searching for
my missing father.

Alfonse
Are you suggesting that your heroic
story was merely the result of
a coincidence?

Ced
A true hero would have set out to
end the Empire's oppression from
the very beginning.
If I had done that, then many children
would have been saved from anguish
and imprisonment. I failed them.

Alfonse
...

Ced
Heroes like Lord Seliph possess an
unshakeable resolve to defend those
who cannot defend themselves.
Someone like that would have done
right by those people from the start.
Someone like you, Prince Alfonse.
You have a far greater right to the
title of hero than I ever will.

Alfonse
Nonsense. I have a long way to go.
That is made clear to me each and
every time I join the Heroes in battle.
And that is also why I make it a point
to study the examples of heroic
individuals such as yourself.

Ced
Your command of the battlefield is
as strong as I have seen, Prince Alfonse.
The way you took up the charge on
the vanguard was inspiring.
With your charisma and unshakable
will, it is no wonder that so many
follow you so devotedly.

Alfonse
It is more to their credit than mine.
Any of the Heroes, including you,
would have made the same choices
in my position.
My being in that position is largely a
product of circumstances, just as it
was with you.
But it is the choices we make within
our circumstances that matter most.

Ced
...

Alfonse
You could have fled, couldn't you?
Taken the easy way out?

Ced
That is a fair point. Yes, I could have.

Alfonse
Yet you chose the difficult path,
because you could not stand to
see others suffer.
That makes you a hero, Ced.
At least as much as me.

Ced
On the contrary, it is you who ever
works to lift up those around you.
That is what heroes do.
Within you, I see the same strength of
character and leadership that I have
seen in Lords Seliph and Leif.
You shine hope, like a beacon, on all
those around you.

Alfonse
As I've said, I have a long way to go.
With each step along my path, I can
only hope that I stumble occasionally
into doing the right thing.

Ced
Even a stumble is a step forward.
So long as you continue to press on...
The wind will always find your back.

I cannot say that you have changed
my mind about calling myself a hero,
Prince Alfonse.
However, I have come to believe that
I may in fact have a use here.
There are many threats facing Askr
and its people. I would do what I can
to help.
If that means joining the Heroes, then
I would be foolish not to do that.

Alfonse
I am happy to hear you say so.

Ced
I may be as helpless as anyone else,
but I believe even the most ordinary
person can find a path forward.
I will walk my path carefully, without
pride, as though treading on thin ice.

Once you set your mind to it, I have

I am glad you have decided to lend

I hope to make my presence in this

Fjorm
There you are, Princess Altena.

Altena
Hello, Princess Fjorm. What can
I do for you?

Fjorm
Prince Quan is eager to meet and
speak with you.

Altena
...
Fjorm
Apologies—that was tactless of me.
You lost your father when you were
very young, did you not?
I meant to say that it would mean a
great deal to him, I think, to see the
person his daughter grew up to be.

Altena
Thank you, Princess Fjorm, but that
will not be necessary.
I have no intentions of meeting or
speaking with Prince Quan.
Fjorm
Ah... May I ask why?

Altena
When I was summoned to this world,
[Summoner] told me that
I would have encounters like these.
The Heroes I meet may seem familiar,
but they are not necessarily from the
same world as my own.
Regardless of any resemblance, the
Prince Quan in the castle hall is not
my actual father.
That is why I see no need to speak
with him.
Now, if you will excuse me... I have
more training to do.
Fjorm
Princess Altena...

Fjorm
...
How strange...
She seemed happy to reunite with
Leif and Finn, even though they too
are from other worlds...
Could there be another reason
she does not wish to see him?

Fjorm
This tea is one of my favorites,
Princess Altena. I hope you enjoy it.

Altena
Thank you, Princess Fjorm.
I must say, to have tea with another
princess is a pleasure I would not
have experienced in Thracia.

Fjorm
Ah... Well, good...

Altena
Is something troubling you? Again, I
am very sorry for my harsh response
to you the other day.
Fjorm
No, please don't apologize. I admit
I am curious, but you should not feel
you have to discuss it with me.

Altena
You deserve to know the truth.
My father, Prince Quan of Leonster,
was a proud knight who aspired to
unite the Thracian peninsula.
The country of Thracia considered
him a bitter enemy. He fell in battle
against them.

Fjorm
I see...

Altena
I was too young to understand, but
the Thracian army took me hostage
to use as leverage against Leonster.
Fjorm
That's awful...

Altena
My father's elite fighting force, the
Lanceritter, was annihilated. And my
mother...she was killed as well.
King Travant of Thracia pierced my
father's heart with Gáe Bolg's divine
counterpart, Gungnir.
He took Gáe Bolg along with me, and
raised me as if I were his daughter.
It was more than a decade before I
even began to suspect any different...

Altena
Forgive me, Princess Fjorm. This is
not exactly pleasant conversation
for tea time.
Fjorm
No—please don't apologize.
I only wish that I knew what to say.
Fate can be so frightfully cruel.

Altena
Travant took both my parents from
me. Worse, he sought to destroy
my home country.
Nevertheless...from a very young age,
I saw him work tirelessly to improve
the lives of the people of Thracia.
He was often portrayed as a heartless
villain, but he was fully willing to sully
his reputation to achieve his goals...
Fjorm
...

Altena
In my ignorance, I respected him.
He cared for me as if I were his true
daughter. Educated me. Trained me
as a knight.
I know now he was my enemy. I do
despise him... But how can I face my
birth father, after all of that?
Fjorm
I understand why you are uneasy.
The truth would certainly be painful
for him to learn.
But these conflicting feelings of yours
are all the more reason for you to
meet Prince Quan!
A daughter cannot be undeserving of
a father, Princess Altena.

Altena
...

Fjorm
He must have thought of you and
Prince Leif right to his last breath.
And look what a lovely person you
have grown up to be!
Please... Prince Quan deserves to
witness that, does he not?

Altena
With all due respect, Princess Fjorm...
You are not what I expected royalty
from a frozen country to be like.
I thought your heart would be as cold
as the land you come from. I see now
it is the opposite.
Since we've met, you have shown me
nothing but warmth and kindness.

Fjorm
If anything, I have gotten too heated
up over this. I am sincerely sorry.

Altena
Not at all. Perhaps a warm heart is
needed to survive a cold, harsh land.
By the same token, a gentle place can
give rise to a stern soul.
Perhaps that is what I saw when
I looked up to Thracia's king...
