Sharena
Great job, everyone! Not only did we
finish our mission, but no one was
hurt! I'm so glad.

Osian
You kidding? Come on, like those
bandits had half a chance against the
Fiana Freeblades!

Tanya
Oh yeah? They looked like they had
better odds than that against you...
At least until Mareeta bailed you out.

Mareeta
That was nothing. Credit my mother's
tactics for putting me in position.

Eyvel
The credit goes to our teamwork
most of all.
But let's delay the celebration until
we've reached the castle. Another
ambush could find us at any time.

Tanya
...

Alfonse
What is it, Tanya? Have you spotted
something in the wilderness?

Tanya
No, nothing like that. I'm just noticing
that this land looks...worked.

Eyvel
Good eye. The slope of that hill there
does look man-made.

Alfonse
Now that you mention it, I do believe
this area was plotted for farmland.
It seems that banditry and a flooding
river have put those plans on hold for
the time being, however.

Mareeta
That explains why it's abandoned.

Osian
Shame to let all this good sunlight
and fresh water go to waste.

Tanya
You know... That's a great point!
Prince Alfonse! Why don't we
handle this place ourselves?

Alfonse
You want to use the Heroes...to
clear the land?

Tanya
Think of what we could build... Not
just a farm—a whole village!

Eyvel
She's right. With proper irrigation and
logging, a village here could thrive.

Osian
Somebody say logging? Stand back!
These arms are made for chopping!

Mareeta
I'd be happy to help with some good,
wholesome work like this.

Sharena
Are you sure? There's no shortage of
important work for Heroes.

Tanya
This is important too! And we're
happy to do it.

Alfonse
Then that settles it. Don't hesitate to
let us know if there is anything you
need, all right?

Tanya
You got it! Don't worry—we'll have
this place bustling in no time!

みなさん、今日はお疲れさまでした!
ケガなく任務を終えることができて
なによりです!

オーシン
へへっ、盗賊相手に後れをとる
フィアナ義勇軍じゃないってね!

タニア
オーシンったら調子に乗って…
さっきもマリータに危ないところを
助けられてたじゃないの。

マリータ
いえ、それはエーヴェルお母様の
指示が的確だったので…

エーヴェル
今日の勝利はみんなの
力がうまくかみ合った結果よ。
だけど、城に戻るまで気を抜かないでね。
このあたりは盗賊が出没するらしいから。

タニア
……

アルフォンス
タニア、どうかしたのかい?
向こうの荒れ地をじっと見つめて。

タニア
この土地…今は荒れて見えるけど
どことなく人の手が入った形跡が
あるような気がして…

エーヴェル
そうね。あの丘は自然に出来たというより
造形されたような形をしているわね。

アルフォンス
たしか…この土地は農地として
開墾する予定だったと聞いているね。
だけど、戦乱や川の氾濫のおかげで
その計画は頓挫したみたいなんだ。

マリータ
だから、少しだけ人の手が入った
跡が残っているんですね。

オーシン
日当りもいいし、水はけもよさそうだ。
せっかくいい土地なのにもったいないな…

タニア
そうだ、アルフォンス王子!
この土地をあたしたちに
開拓させてくれない?

アルフォンス
えっ? 英雄の君たちが
この土地を切り拓くというのかい?

タニア
農地にするだけじゃなく
ここなら村だって作れそうだよ。
どうかな?

エーヴェル
そうね…川の治水をしっかりやって
丘の下に広がる森を伐採できれば
村の用地も確保できそうね。

オーシン
おっ、力仕事が必要なら
俺に任せといてくれよ!

マリータ
私もお母様の手伝いができるなら
喜んで協力します。

シャロン
でも、いいんでしょうか。
英雄のみなさんにそんなお仕事まで
お願いしてしまって…

タニア
大丈夫! 任せてよ!
うまくやってみせるからさ。

アルフォンス
それでは、お願いしてもいいだろうか。
なにか必要なものがあれば
遠慮なく言ってほしい。

タニア
よーし!
この荒れ地を見違えるような
立派な村にしてみせるよ…!

Osian
We've got tons of strong Heroes
helping out now. This is gonna
be a breeze!

Mareeta
Here are my mother's schematics for
the canal.

Tanya
Oh, wow. These are really detailed!
Guess it shouldn't surprise me she's
more meticulous than my dad.

Sharena
Here I am! Ready to lend a hand!

Tanya
Just in time, Princess Sharena!
We're grateful for the help.

Sharena
So much progress already? This
village is practically up and running!
You must have a good deal of past
experience with this sort of endeavor.

Tanya
You could say that! My dad and I
helped develop Mt. Violdrake,
between Thracia and Munster.

Sharena
That does explain why this project
is coming along so smoothly.

Mareeta
We may have been summoned to
Askr to fight, but I see work like
this as equally important.
We should support the people
however we can.

Sharena
Of course! Any assistance the Heroes
can provide will no doubt help the
people of Askr flourish!
You may find more action than you
expect to, however. Remember,
there are still bandits in the area.

Tanya
Don't worry. We've put way too
much effort into this to let it be
ruined by a few brigands!

Mareeta
Agreed—but stay sharp, nevertheless.

Sharena
We'll deploy some more troops to the
perimeter, just to be safe. Let's all be
on our guard!

Osian
Thought we were ripe for the picking
did ya? Get lost—and don't let us
catch you around here again!

Mareeta
All clear. They're in full retreat.

Tanya
...

Osian
You OK, Tanya?

Tanya
Yeah. I'm not hurt, just...thinking.
At Mt. Violdrake...some of my dad's
crew got greedy and turned on us.
They wanted the land for themselves,
and they were ready to kill us for it.
Even though we'd worked together...

Mareeta
Dastards.

Tanya
They were sick of working so hard
and still going hungry.
It doesn't excuse their behavior, but...
They were only trying to look out
for themselves.

Osian
Your own crew turned on you? Man...
That'd mess anyone up.

Tanya
Storms, earthquakes, floods...all that
stuff can ruin a farmstead.
But worse than that is how, even if
nature cooperates, people can wreck
the peace all on their own.
Seems like that's something Thracia
and Askr have in common.

Osian
Hate to say it, but you've got a point.
Sometimes people are their own
worst enemies.

Mareeta
That may be true, but there is
an upside.
Unlike natural disasters, which we're
powerless to prevent...
We can protect this land from people
with harmful intentions.

Tanya
You know what? You're right!
Defending this place against other
people is something we can do!
Thanks, Mareeta! I hadn't thought
of it that way. We're not powerless!

Osian
That settles it, then. No matter what,
we won't let this place get overrun
by thieves!

Tanya
Yeah! We'll run them off as many
times as it takes to make sure they
don't come back!

Alfonse
Astonishing.

Sharena
Isn't it?

Alfonse
To think that where this beautiful
village stands, there was nothing
but wilderness a short while ago.

Sharena
When you say it like that, it sounds
hard to believe.
I was here for the construction, and
even I am doubting my own eyes.

Osian
Well start believing, because it was
partly by your hands that this got
put together!

Tanya
Yeah! Thanks to you, the levee and
canal are looking great!
We've also got a watchtower, a
granary, and a town hall! That'll do
to get this place up and running.

Eyvel
Yes. And once the land is cultivated,
the village will sustain itself.

Sharena
The Heroes come through for us in
so many unexpected ways.

Mareeta
This was a nice change of pace.

Eyvel
There is more to being a Hero than
simply fighting.
I'm glad we were able to produce this
living reminder of that fact.
This is an achievement we can all
be proud of.

Osian
Took the words right out of my
mouth, Eyvel!

Alfonse
I will ask Commander Anna to recruit
settlers, but something tells me we
won't have to strain ourselves.
This place was built by Heroes, after
all. It already has a reputation.

Mareeta
Good to hear.

Tanya
It still needs a name, though!

Osian
How about the Village of Heroes?

Tanya
Too vain.
Oh! What if we name it after Fiana?

Eyvel
I'd rather we didn't.
The name of the village should be
decided by the people who live in it.
They will be the ones responsible for
its future.

Tanya
Good point. That way they'll feel like
it's really theirs.

Eyvel
Whatever name it receives, it will
serve as a reminder of our bond with
Askr...even after we're long gone.

Sharena
I like that sentiment. Thanks to all of
you, the people who settle here will
prosper for many years to come!

Tanya
That reminds me...about the bandits
who tried to raid us.
I wonder if we might be able to sort
things out with them. Maybe even
offer them a place to stay.
Sometimes all people like that need is
a promise of a fresh start.

Eyvel
A fine idea. Give them something to
protect, and they may yet turn their
lives around.

Alfonse
Perhaps we can help you convince
them. Peace is in all our interests.

Osian
If they give you a hard time, Vouge
and I will be there to set 'em straight!

Tanya
Could you leave your axe out of this,
just for once?

Mareeta
If the bandits and settlers can truly
get along, we will have achieved
something very special.
People will look to them as a symbol.
Proof that peace is possible.

Tanya
If even one person finds hope in this,
it will have all been worth it!

Hah! Ah... No, can't rest yet...
If I don't improve, I...

Fjorm
Pardon me, Mareeta. I don't mean to
disrupt your concentration...

Mareeta
Princess Fjorm! No, it's all right. You
haven't been waiting long, I hope?

Fjorm
Only a short while. Your training is so
intense, I...could not bring myself
to interrupt.
But Commander Anna has called a
strategy meeting, so...

Mareeta
Apologies. My exercises have a way
of absorbing me.

Fjorm
No apologies necessary. I admire your
focus, truly.
Mastery of the sword is rare because
it requires just the kind of discipline
you possess.

Mareeta
You flatter me, but...

Fjorm
What is it? Is something the matter?

Mareeta
No, it's... It's nothing.
Ngh! No... Not again...
How is it so close?!
Fjorm
Mareeta, what is it?! Something in
the forest?

Mareeta
Yes. Something terrible is happening
again. I can feel it...

Mareeta
It's here. I know it.
There's no mistaking this wicked air.
The cursed sword that once took

I'm fine.
Only I came upon a...copy of myself.
One that was still thrall to an evil
blade. That shouldn't be possible.
The sword lost its power...

Fjorm
Mareeta... That other version of you
must have been summoned from a
different world.
A world in which she made different
choices than you did in yours.

Mareeta
Not a copy, then. Nor even a fake.
She is...truly me.
I cannot abide this!

Fjorm
Mareeta! Come back!

Mareeta
I will not allow this to happen again.
Not to anyone.
That sword should not exist.

Mareeta
Yet here it is. Better defend yourself!

Mareeta
Ngh!
Hyah! Hah!

Mareeta
Hmph... Skillful parry...

Mareeta
Release her. Release ME. Now!

Mareeta
Heh...
How would you have answered that
demand, when you were me?
Your sword at Eyvel's throat...
Drowning in power... Would you
have been able to let go?

No. You were never the victim of a

Only of your own desire for strength!

You're not trying to get stronger.
You're running away. Fleeing from
the fact that you had true strength

Mareeta
You're wrong. I'm not running...
I'm being pushed.
Well, guess what—I push back!
Yah! Hyah!

Mareeta
You think you can banish your past
with a swing of your sword?
You spilled the blood of the ones you

Finish what you started! Kill Eyvel!
Kill them all! Reclaim your strength!

True strength isn't the power to kill.
It's the power to protect the ones

My mother and Lord Leif taught
me that!
HIIIYAH!

Mareeta
Heh... Protect the ones you love...
Heheh... How quaint...
But you are mistaken. Love cannot
drive a blade into your foe's heart...
Only hatred can do that.

Mareeta
That is not why I fight!

Mareeta
Heheh... That's a pretty thought...
But you won't have a choice.
Not when you face true struggle...

Mareeta
Stop! Come back!
She disappeared... How?!
Fjorm
Mareeta! There you are!
You're wounded! What happened?!
Were you fighting your other self?

Mareeta
I'm all right. These cuts aren't deep.
Sorry to worry you, Princess Fjorm.
But some good did come of this.
I now know that, along with my duties
to Askr and my friends, I also have an
obligation to myself.

Fjorm
What do you mean?

Mareeta
I must do for this other version of me
what I could not manage for myself.
I must free her from control.
It cannot be a coincidence that the
two of us have met here.
This can only be destiny.

Fjorm
You know, [Summoner]
once told me...
Heroes are summoned to Askr for a
reason. A purpose all their own.
Perhaps you've just found yours.

Mareeta
Yes—and I think this other Mareeta
may have found hers as well.
I'd like to think that, on some level,
she yearns for freedom. We'll see.

Fjorm
You don't need to bear this burden
all on your own, you know.
The people of Askr, and the other
Heroes, are here for you.

Mareeta
Thank you. With your help,
I'm certain we can save her.
But to do it, I will need to hone my
strength like never before.
To overcome my past... To move
beyond the temptation for quick
and easy power...
I will prove the truth of what I said
to her. Strength is protecting the
ones you love.

Alfonse
Another victory, and without so much
as a scratch on us. I'm impressed by
your tacticial acumen, Eyvel.
Your command is fast, flexible, and
above all precise. We owe our
success today to you.

Eyvel
I had little to do with it. Orders matter
far less than the skill with which
they're carried out.

Alfonse
Respectfully, I disagree. There is a
reason your name is spoken of in
the legends of other worlds.
Your leadership raised an army
against tyranny. Your very face
is a symbol of freedom in Fiana.

Eyvel
Any face would have done. That it
turned out to be mine was merely
a coincidence.

Alfonse
Come now—that's too modest! ou
were no figurehead for some veteran
regiment. You trained volunteers.

Eyvel
True. The Freeblades were mostly
bandlits and ruffians to begin with.
But I merely gave them guidance.
It was their strong will that carried
them to greatness.

Alfonse
Why their will in particular, and not
some other ability?

Eyvel
The Freeblades didn't take up arms
for lofty ideals, and they certainly
didn't do it because they were told.
They did it because they were hungry
and oppressed. Because they, and
their families, were on the brink.
Nothing hones a blade to a sharper
edge than deperation. The fear of
losing what matters most to you.
In that sense, we had a massive
advantage over our enemy.
The church was too comfortable to
match our strength of will.

Alfonse
I see your point. The will to fight
cannot be learned by rote. It is either
there, or it is not.

Eyvel
Indeed. And when it is there, all it
needs is a little push in the right
direction...which I provided.
That will, however, more than
anything else, is why Lord Leif's
campaign was victorious.

To think that fate should bring us

Indeed—though I'm afraid this world

Finn
Lord Leif owes you a great deal,
and I... Well, I owe you my life.
Here in Askr, the same as anywhere,
my lance is yours.

Eyvel
Thank you, Finn. You are, as ever, a
shining example of knightly devotion.

Finn
There is one thing I would like to ask
you about, if I may. Your memory.

Eyvel
All recollection of my youth remains
lost to me, I'm afraid.

Finn
That is unfortunate. I have mentioned
this to you before, but...you greatly
remind me of someone I once knew.

Eyvel
Yes, you've said as much.

Finn
We cannot know for certain unless
your memory returns, but...
Ah—forgive me, but I've a war concil
to attend. We can speak of this again
another time.

Alfonse
...

Eyvel
Prince Alfonse. How much of that did
you hear?

Alfonse
Only a little. Apologies—I did not
intend to eavesdrop.

Eyvel
Quite all right. Allow me to explain.
I cannot recall any of the time prior
to my arrival in Fiana.
My earliest memory is waking up on
the nearby beach and being rescued.

Alfonse
I see...

Eyvel
I could have been doing anything in
time before that. I could have had
a family. I don't know.
The only certainty is that my body
remembers how to fight.
That is why I became a mercenary.
It was the only thing that felt...familiar.
Whatever happened in my past, it
must have been bloody. That is all
I know of it...

Hello, Prince Alfonse. Training in the

Helping some new arrivals adjust to

Eyvel, if I may, there is something
I have been meaning to ask you.

Eyvel
Then ask. I'll answer as best as I can.

Alfonse
Did it make you uneasy at all to lead
the Freeblades into battle without
your memory?
I imagine it must be unnerving, to
wield a blade without being certain
of who you are.

Eyvel
Yes and no.
It is true that, for a long time, I felt an
emptiness in my heart.
In those early days, I had no one to
rely on. I knew neither who I was,
nor how I came to be.

Alfonse
Go on.

Eyvel
Because of all that, however... Fiana
quickly became everything to me.
All I knew all I ever cared about
was in that village.
People like Lord Leif, Lady Nanna,
Mareeta... I began to care for them as
deeply as if they were my children.
Before I knew it, protecting them
became my whole reason for living.

Alfonse
It really is as if your life only began
in earnest on that beach.

Eyvel
That is how I feel, even in this day.
Only now, I count the people of Askr
among my charges as well.
It's a waste to look back at the
emptiness of my past when my
future is so full of life.

Alfonse
So the future is a supporting anchor,
of sorts, for you.
That is how you keep moving forward
without any tether to the past.
Thank you, Eyvel. I feel I'm beginning
to understand you.

Eyvel
I've told you before, Prince Alfonse.
The Freeblades's success had little to
do with me.
I was only fortunate enough to be
blessed with such wonderful friends
and children.

Alfonse
You said yourself that you gave them
guidance. Surely you must see how
you contributed to their growth.
Your ability to press on, even with no
memory... It must have been an
inspiration to them.

Eyvel
Kind words. I still say I hardly deserve
them, but...kind all the same.
Thank you.

Alfonse
I do believe that memories of the past
are essential to understanding oneself
as a person.
At the same time, there is no use
dwelling on them, because the past
cannot be altered.
The future, on the other hand...
That is worth all our efforts.

Eyvel
Interesting point of view.

Alfonse
As royalty, it is incumbent upon me
to provide my subjets with a bright
and hopeful future.
I want to be more mindful of that.

Eyvel
Perhaps that bright future is the key
to my past, as well.
Maybe when the world is finally at
peace... Yes, I think that will be when
my memory returns.
Let us both look ahead to that future,
then...for you people, and mine.

Osian
OK, that wasn't my imagination.
Somebody's tailing me. I know it
in my guts!
Hey, whoever you are! I'm on to you
now, so you may as well come out!
??? Hah! Hear that? We're busted.
??? The new fellow is perceptive indeed!
How promising.

Osian
Uh, what? Who are you guys?

Bartre
Gahaha! The name's Bartre, boy!
I'm a member of the Community of
Hatchet-Operating Persons! Clever
name, eh?

Osian
CHOP? Yeah, that's, uh...clever.

Arthur
We wanted AXE, but you try finding
a word that starts with an X!
CHOP is promoting Axe Awareness.
You believe axes are the pinnacle of
martial invention, don't you, Osian?

Osian
Man, I don't understand a word of
what you just said.

Dorcas
He's making it sound way more
complicated than it is.
Look, we're just a bunch of axe users
who spar and trade tips. That's all.

Osian
Why didn't you say so? With all the
sneaking around, I thought you were
a shady cult or something.

Arthur
Ha! Hahaha! Lad, I assure you, not a
mote of darkness tarnishes this
upstanding enterprise!

Bartre
Welcome to CHOP. We're gonna help
you hack through the competition!

Osian
Great, but do you have to be such a
dorky dad about it? Come on...
Well, whatever. Dorks or not, I won't
turn down a chance to train up.

Arthur
So, new recruit, tell me—what, in
your view, is the most important
trait for an axe wielder to possess?

Osian
That's easy. If you wanna swing a big
heavy chopper like Vouge here...
You gotta have big strong muscles.

Arthur
Quite so! Muscles are instruments of
pure justice! They can repel any foe,
no matter how bad your luck!

Osian
Not sure what luck's got to do with it,
but yeah, sure.

Arthur
So, with an eye for building up those
muscles of yours as fast as we can...
We've decided to pair you with the
toughest sparring partner we've got!
Come on out, Legion!

Legion
We are Legion. Our muscles are
many. Come and see! Uwee hee!

Osian
You're a big one, aren't you?
Guess I'd better go all out!
Hyaaa!
Yaaah!
C'mon!

Legion
Urk! Uwee...hee... Good one...

Osian
Hah... That was tough... But I pulled
through in the end.

Arthur
Well done, so far. But if you think that
was the end, you're sorely mistaken!

Osian
What are you talkin' about?
I knocked him flat!

Legion
Uweeheehee. Now it's our turn to get
some practices!

Osian
There's two of him?!

Legion
More than two, uweeheehee!
We are also here!

Osian
Gah! What kinda magic is this?!
Are you multiplying?!

Legion
No-no-no. We have always been
Legion. Uweeheehee...

Arthur
Well, my boy, I'll leave you to it. Your
muscles are sure to swell by the time
you defeat them all! Best of luck!

Osian
Seriously?! One was hard enough!
How many of them are there?!
Ugh... Nothing else for it, I guess.
Come on—let's do this!

Arthur
Yes! That's the way! Swing that axe
until you drop, and you'll be a shining
paragon of justice in no time!

Osian
Seems most axe users are rough and
tumble types. Makes sense, I guess.
I don't mind sparring with big fellas
like Hawkeye and Barst, but we could
use some variety...

Bartre
You want variety, do ya? I think we
can oblige.
Feast your eyes on the elegance of
this guy's unique style!

Libra
I am Libra—a humble priest. If you're
interested in training with the axe,
I believe I can help.

Osian
Whoa! Yeah, you're a change of pace.
You're actually...kinda pretty, if you
don't mind my saying?

Libra
I'll take it as a compliment.

Osian
But you look like more of a finesse
fighter. The axe isn't really that kind
of weapon, is it?
With your build, wouldn't you be
better off with a rapier or something?

Libra
Why don't you try me and find out?

Bartre
Hah! Gettin' along great already,
I see. This is gonna be good!

Libra
That was a fine bit of exercise.
Thank you.

Osian
Man... You're way stronger than you
look... I could barely keep up...

Bartre
Never underestimate the power of
technique, my boy! Consider that
your lesson for the day.

Libra
You look rather worse for wear...
if you don't mind my saying.
Here—use this vulnerary.

Osian
Ah... Thanks.

Libra
Farewell, for now. May the gods
protect you.

Osian
What a guy... I never would have
expected him to overpower me
like that.
I'm gonna have to double my training
if I ever wanna match him. Man...
Shows how much I know.

Bartre
That's the right attitude. If you knew
everything, you wouldn't have any
room to improve.
True strength is much more than just
a pair of biceps and an axe in your
hands. Remember that.

Osian
Wait, what?! Aren't muscles and axes
the whole point of CHOP?!

I gotta say, I was pretty skeptical of
all this CHOP stuff to start with, but
I've come around.
My training's been way more helpful
lately. It's really paying off!

Bartre
Good to hear!

Arthur
Yes! One more axe joins the sea of
shining blades known as CHOP!

Dorcas
I'm not into all this showboating, but
better training's never bad. Show us
what you can do in the next battle.

Osian
You know it! A battle's gonna feel like
a warm-up, after all the axe-swinging
I've been doing!

Bartre
Now that you mention it, our axes
have taken a beating from all that
swinging, haven't they?

Arthur
An astute observation! Perhaps it's
time we sought Commander Anna
for maintenance and resupply.

Osian
Oh, yeah, good idea.
Speaking of ideas... Who started
CHOP, anyway? I'd love to meet
the founder.

Bartre
Don't know, actually. It's been in Askr
longer than any of us have.

Osian
Really? I thought for sure you were
one of the founders, Bartre!

Dorcas
We all just kind of heard about it.
Word of mouth and all.

Osian
Weird. Well, I'd love to keep training
with you guys, if you'll have me.
I'm learning a lot.

Arthur
Excellent! I, for one, am delighted to
welcome you into our ranks officially!

Anna
Perfect. Way to go, CHOP! The more
you all train, the stronger you'll be.
And the more axes you'll need to
buy from me, incidentally! Win-win.
Yep, this is definitely my best whisper
campaign yet. Keep 'em comin'!

So many Heroes, all in one place...
Askr's awe-inspiring!

Sharena
Hi there, Tanya! Making the rounds
in the castle, I see.

Tanya
Oh, Princess Sharena! Yep! I was
just marveling at the gathering in
the great hall.
All those Heroes...and every one of
them as famous and accomplished
as Lord Leif!
They're all so different too. Seeing
someone change into a bird right
before my eyes never gets old!

Sharena
As one of the people responsible for
assembling these Heroes into that
great hall, I can assure you...
The novelty doesn't wear off.

Tanya
I'll bet it doesn't! Who could get used
to feeling like they're in a storybook?

Sharena
Not I! That said, Tanya, try not to be
too starstruck. One of the chapters in
that storybook is yours, after all!

Tanya
It doesn't feel that way to me, to tell
you the truth.
I'm just a girl with a bow and decent
aim. I'm nothing special.
standing shoulder to shoulder with
Lord Leif, with famed knights and
noble rulers... It doesn't feel right.

Sharena
Given time, it will. In the meanwhile,
just do your best, OK? I'm expecting
great things from you!

Tanya
Hearing you say that, how can I not?
Don't worry, Princess Sharena.
I won't let you down.
I'll just...have to do my best. Yeah.

Hello, Tanya. Honing that marksman's

Tanya
Princess Sharena...
I don't feel much like a marksman
today, unfortunately.

Sharena
We all have our off days. Why don't
you come have tea with me?
Get your mind off it awhile.

Tanya
This tea is incredible! And the cakes...
Ah, I've never had anything so sweet!

Sharena
Help yourself. We've plenty more.

Tanya
Is this how nobles and royalty eat
every day? I'm jealous!
...
Most of the Heroes are probably
used to eating this well, huh?
It's no wonder I don't fit in.

Sharena
Tanya, the Heroes here come from
all walks of life.
Soldiers, mercenaries...some even
came to Askr straight from the farm.

Tanya
But all the most prominent ones I've
seen have been royalty. They must...
command more respect, right?
I said before that I was nothing
special, but...it's actually worse
than that. My dad was a bandit.

Sharena
None of that matters, Tanya.
Wherever you come from, whatever
your circumstances... No matter who
you are or why you fight...
You're a Hero. And we're honored
to have you.

Tanya
That's just what I thought you'd say,
Princess Sharena.

Sharena
Well, since you're such a good
guesser, have some more cake
as a reward!

Tanya
Don't mind if I do!
I'm still feeling a little insecure, but...
Thank you—for both the cake and

Sit tight. I'll find someone with

No need for that, Princess Sharena.
It's only a shallow cut.
This salve will take care of it.

Sharena
That's a relief.
You're well prepared. Do you carry
that medicine with you all the time?

Tanya
Oh, yeah. Force of habit. My dad
always insisted.
You know, it's weird. He'd never do
anything more than spit on his own
injuries, but...
Whenever I got even the least bit
hurt, he always made sure there
was something to put on it.

Sharena
That's not weird. It just means

I guess that's one way to look at it...
He's crude, and yells a lot, but...yeah.

Maybe you don't like to admit it, but
it seems to me you two have a bond.
Heroes are connected to each other
by invisible bonds. That's what

I guess being annoyed by someone is
kind of a bond.

I'm glad to see you back to your old
self, Tanya.

Yeah. Sorry to make you worry.
I was ashamed about my dad being a
former bandit and all, but...
Whether he's royalty or a common
crook, he's the only dad I've got.
Dagdar's past doesn't matter. I'm
proud to be his daughter.

Sharena
I'm so glad to hear that! It's obvious
to me that the bond you share is a
special one.
Maybe someday Dagdar will find his
way to Askr too!

Tanya
Hah! Be careful what you wish for.
I did warn you he yells a lot.
Might liven up the place a bit, though.
Yeah, I guess it might be nice...
