Dieck
You want to personally hire me?

Melady
That's right. The Dieck Mercenaries
are known even in Bern.

Would you add your strength
to my own?


Dieck
I'm not sure I understand. We
both serve under the Order of
Heroes, do we not?

What reason would there be to
go out of your way to hire me?


Melady
I ask for Princess Guinivere.

Dieck
The princess of Bern? I still struggle
to understand.

Melady
Dieck, you were summoned around
the same time we were. Not much
time has passed since we arrived.

Have you built many connections
with your fellow Heroes in such
short a time?


Dieck
Well, some acquaintances, but no one
who I'd trust to truly have my back,
I suppose.

Melady
As with us. So we would ask that
you place the protection of the
princess as your highest priority.

Dieck
Before even a threat to Askr?

Melady
Yes. That would be the purpose
of taking you under employ.

Dieck
I see. I'm to be Dieck, Princess
Protector then, am I?

Melady
This world houses dangers I cannot
yet imagine.

For that reason, adding even one
blade to the princess's guard is
a crucial step forward.


Dieck
I think I understand now. Let me
think about it.

Melady
We will await your answer and
hope to receive good news.

はい。ディーク傭兵団の勇名は

ミレディ
だからこそ、もしものとき
ギネヴィア様の御身を
なによりも優先して動いてほしいんです


ディーク
そりゃあ
アスク王国の危機よりも
優先してほしいってことか?

ミレディ
はい…
そのためにあなたを雇いたいのです。

ディーク
なるほどな。
王女様の護衛役として、か。

ミレディ
この世界には
私には思いも及ばない危機や
激しい戦いが待っています。
だからこそ、

ギネヴィア様の
御身を守るための剣を…
一振りでも多く増やしておきたい。


ディーク
依頼内容はわかった。
まあ、考えとくぜ。

ミレディ
良いお返事を期待しています。

Melady
I see... So this castle has a number
of underground waterways running
beneath it, yes?

Should we need to escape from the
southern gate, is there a place where
we can secure some drinking water?


Merlinus
There is a sizable lake about a half
day's walk due south. You will be
able to secure water there.

Further, I have negotiated with a few
merchants and I was able to arrange
a carriage.


Melady
Thank you. We will take the route
you've shown us if we must escape
in a hurry.

Merlinus
Good! But why all the preparations?
All the sneaking about put me a bit
on edge, you see...

Melady
...

Merlinus
At the very least, oughtn't we speak
to Lord Eliwood or Lord Roy about...

Melady
I assure you that it is not that we
mistrust the Order of Heroes, or
the Lycian League.

Prince Alfonse, Princess Sharena,
and [Summoner]...

Lord Roy and Lady Lilina accepted
us with open arms, as you did as well,
Merlinus. You all have our trust.


Merlinus
S-saying it straight to my face
like that... You're making me blush!

Melady
That said, I want to be as cautious
as I possibly can. No matter what,
the princess must be protected.

Merlinus
Hm! So you are only preparing
for potentialities, are you?

Melady
If you would, please continue to
investigate escape routes and safe
places where we might hide.

Merlinus
Understood. Now, I must get back
to sorting out the weapon storage.

But, Melady.. I know it may not be
my place to say so, but do try not
to overwork yourself.


Melady
Thank you for your concern. I will
take that under advisement.

...

Galle, Zeiss... If only you were here...

Guinivere
Excuse me, Melady... Do you have
time for a brief talk?

Melady
Princess Guinivere! Yes, of course.

Guinivere
Melady... I want to express how
thankful I am for all that you've
done for me.

Melady
...

Guinivere
But we are surrounded by the Order
of Heroes here.

Although I may not be of much help,
I promised Prince Alfonse I would do
all I could for the people of Askr.

I would like for you to take up that
goal alongside me.


Melady
O-of course, Princess. I will do
anything you ask of me.

But...if something were to happen
to you, Princess Guinivere, I could
not bear it...

I believe I was summoned here to
protect you, and it is my duty to do
so at any cost.


Guinivere
You are truly kind. You followed me
after I left Bern with no hesitation.
I have not forgotten.

Melady
...

Guinivere
However. If the people of Askr
and I are ever both in danger...
I want you to help Askr.

Melady
But Princess Guinivere, I—

Guinivere
Melady. Please. If the choice should
arise, defend my ideals over my life.

That is what I ask of you, Melady.
Surely you understand, don't you?


Melady
Defend your...ideals. Princess
Guinivere, I...

It seems I have failed to consider
the principles you hold so dear...

Melady
I am sorry to ask this of you, but...
please forget about the requests
I made of you the other day.

Dieck
What's this? Change of heart?

Merlinus
If that is what you wish, I will kindly
oblige. I do wonder what happened,
however. Will you tell us?

Melady
It was a...misunderstanding.
On my part.

Princess Guinivere has corrected me.
She asks that, between her and Askr,
we are to prioritize Askr's defense.


Dieck
...

Melady
The thing I ought to focus my efforts
on upholding is Princess Guinivere's
principles. I realize that now.

Merlinus
Princess Guinivere's principles are
certainly worth upholding, then.

Dieck
The many over the one, is it?

Seems like it should disqualify
her as royalty, but...means she's
got spine. I like that.


Merlinus
Melady, should you require anything,
you need only ask.

Dieck
Right. Tell the princess she can
count on me anytime. The Dieck
mercenaries are available to her.

Melady
Thank you, both. I am happy to
hear you feel this way.

I pushed my own ideals onto
Princess Guinivere...

I should have thought instead to
protect what she holds dear—her
principles and ideals included.

And those ideals connect back
to Askr and its future.

Galle... Zeiss... I will defend the ideals
of the princess here in this land, and
continue growing closer to its people.

That is the path I believe is right,
and so that is the path I will take.

Merlinus
Ah, hello, Nino. Say...am I dead?

Nino
Huh? This isn't the afterlife!
This is Askr. Why would you
ask something like that?

Merlinus
It's only...I see a young Lord Eliwood
and Lord Roy standing next to each
other! What else should I believe?!

No, no no! It can't end like this...
There was so much more I had
planned for Pherae...

Fjorm
Umm... Merlinus? As Nino just said,
this is not the afterlife.

Fjorm
This is Askr. It's a different world
from your Elibe.

Here in Askr, Heroes from many
worlds and times have been
summoned and brought together.


Nino
That's right...

That's why it isn't so strange to have
a young Lord Eliwood and Lord Roy
standing side by side here.


Merlinus
Wha— F-for such a place to exist
without my knowing... Incredible.

Hah. I truly thought I had finally
lived out the last of my days and had
been summoned to the beyond.

Fjorm
Ah. So then, you and Nino were both
summoned to Askr as Heroes... I look
forward to working with you both.

Merlinus
Mm-hmm! Erm, actually... B-back up
a moment there, if you would...

I'm a...Hero?

Fjorm
Merlinus, is something wrong?
You have a look about you...

Merlinus
Ah, Princess Fjorm.

There is nothing wrong with my
body or my mood, per se, but...


Fjorm
...But?

Merlinus
Something you said before stuck
in my head.

I have been summoned here...
as a "Hero."


Fjorm
No question about it. You were
brought here like all other Heroes—
by [Summoner].

Merlinus
The trouble is...I have never
considered myself a hero.

Although I served House Pherae,
I am in truth little more than a
humble merchant.


Fjorm
And yet you were summoned to
Askr because this world has need
of you.

Whoever is summoned, all brought by
[Summoner], are Heroes.


Merlinus
Y-you say that, but...tell me this.

When I came through the gateway,
did the summoner not sigh in clear
disappointment? "Oh... Merlinus."

Fjorm
Of course not! Please, Merlinus.
You needn't worry. There is a
reason you're here.

Merlinus
I am touched... You are too kind,
Princess Fjorm.
Fjorm
Of course. Just remember, you have
something to offer this world...

Eliwood
There you are, Merlinus. Say, would
you care to share some tea?

Merlinus
Oh my! It's the young Lord Eliwood!

I never thought these eyes would—
*sniff* Oh, how long I've lived!


Eliwood
I heard that you continued to support
Roy after my time. Thank you for
loyalty to House Pherae.

Merlinus
Think nothing of it! Compared to the
great debt I owe, anything I've done
has been nowhere near sufficient!

Eliwood
Merlinus... Do you remember the final
fight against Nergal?

Merlinus
Of course. How could I forget the
courage you and Lord Hector shone
with on entering the Dragon's Gate...

Eliwood
You stuck with us until the very end.

Merlinus
I swore to you both that I would
serve under you all my life. I'd not
leave you for any lesser reason!

That said, being with the two of you
is usually the safest place to be in
any given situation...


Eliwood
Your resolve was clear. Hector, too,
admired you for it.

Merlinus
Still...someone like me, someone who
can't fight, can be only a burden on
the battlefield.

Even with me at your side, I served
no real purpose, of that I'm sure!


Eliwood
I disagree! As I swung my sword
to strike against Nergal...

I could feel your focus and intent
right alongside my own, urging
me onward.


Merlinus
Lord Eliwood, I—

Eliwood
Those who fight on the front lines
are not the only heroes, Merlinus.

For anyone to fight at their very best,
they must have the support of others.

The title of Hero is equally as fitting
for those who offer such support.


Merlinus
I don't know what to say!

Eliwood
Merlinus, to me, you are a great Hero.
Accept it, and hold your head high.

Merlinus
Ohh... Your kind words are wasted
on me, Lord Eliwood!

I will do all I can to live up to yo—
er, the Order's expectations!

Here we have the wyvern stables,

Ylgr
Wow! There are so many!

Horses are lovely, but wyverns...
Wyverns are stunning!


Lilith
Some can be a bit temperamental,
but all of them are well-trained.

Ylgr
Ah, this one is Cherche's Minerva!
I saw them together during training!

Lilith
Yes, that's right. She is usually
somewhat excitable, but she does
not seem to mind you, Princess.

Ylgr
Ooh! Tell me about this one!
Look how majestic it is...

Melady
That would be my wyvern, Tryffin.

Lilith
Ah, Melady! I hadn't seen you there.

Melady
Well, allow me to take this chance
to thank you for taking such good
care of Tryffin, Miss Lilith.

Lilith
Not at all! I'm happy to do it.

Ylgr
Melady's wyvern, Tryffin, is so great!
I wish I could ride a wyvern like hers!

Melady
Thank you for the kind words,
Princess Ylgr.

Ylgr
I bet Tryffin is pleased to have
a great master like you!

Ylgr
Good training, Melady!

Melady
You as well, Princess Ylgr. I must say,
I'm impressed with how hard you
work, even with being a princess.

Ylgr
Hee hee... well, the Order of Heroes
has done a lot for me, so I like to help
out as much as I can!

And by the way, Tryffin was great
out there too!


Melady
Thank you for your praise. I'm sure
Tryffin is pleased as well.

...Princess Ylgr, I hope you don't
mind my saying so, but speaking to
you...I'm reminded of my brother.


Ylgr
You have a brother? I had no idea!

Melady
Yes... And we come from a long
line of wyvern riders, all of whom
served Bern.

My brother Zeiss chose the path
of the wyvern rider too, and swore
an oath as a knight of Bern.


Ylgr
Hmm... Zeiss, is it?

Melady
I, however, chose to follow Princess
Guinivere, which forced us from Bern
and separated me and my brother.

Ylgr
Oh no... Does that mean you had
to fight against your brother?

Melady
Yes. And not just him... I crossed
blades with many former allies.
People who were once friends.

That is what made me what
I am today. And I regret nothing.

I believe in Lady Guinivere, and the
ideals she fights for. That is why
I choose to follow her.


Ylgr
I see... So, then...

Poor Tryffin must have had
a hard time fighting all those
former friends too, huh...

Melady
Great work today, Tryffin.
Tryffin Rrrrr...

Melady
To carry a wyvern rider of Bern,
you've trained since you were
very young, I know.

Brought up in Bern alongside
your clutchmates...

And just like me, you were separated
from your brood and forced to turn
against them.

I've given you a past you'd rather
not think of too, haven't I...

Tryffin Rr. Grrrr...

Melady
And now I've brought you to a whole
other world to keep on fighting...

I can't help but think you would
be better off flying away, free from
me...free to never to fight again.

...

Who's there?! Show yourself!


Lilith
Ah! I-I'm sorry! I was going to speak
up, but I didn't want to interrupt.

Melady
Sorry, Miss Lilith. And...sorry also for
speaking so loudly you could hear.

Lilith
N-not at all! I had no intention
of eavesdropping on you, though
I'm sure it must seem that way...

...

Umm... Melady. Tryffin has never
objected to anything you've done.

Tryffin is happy to fight together
with you—and is proud to have you
as a master.


Melady
Tryffin is proud? ...And you can
speak with wyvern, Miss Lilith?

Lilith
Y-yes. Not only wyverns... I can
understand all animals.

Melady
Amazing. I knew the Order of Heroes
included people with all manner of
talents, but this I never expected.

Tryffin... Is it true? You are proud
to have me?

Tryffin Grr... Rrrrr...

Lilith
You know, before you arrived,
Tryffin was telling me about a
clutchmate... Levrey, I believe?

Melady
Ah, yes. Levrey is Zeiss's—that is,
my brother's—wyvern... Then you
truly can understand animals.

Lilith
While it is true that it was difficult
to face Levrey in combat, Tryffin's
loyalty to you never wavered.

Above all, Tryffin loves to fly
with you at the riens.

Tryffin Grrr... Grr...

Melady
Tryffin... There is no finer wyvern
than you. Truly.

Without complaint and of your
own volition you have stayed
with me through everything...

You have my word, Tryffin. I will
act in line with my ideals so you are
never forced to regret your loyalty.

Alfonse
Dieck! Are you all right?

Dieck
Prince Alfonse! Didn't expect you!

Don't worry on my account. I've been
through worse than this and lived to
tell the tale.


Alfonse
Dieck, I need to you fall back and
regroup with Shanna. I will take
over here.

Dieck
Hey, wait a minute! Never heard of
a prince taking on the very work he
hired me to do before!

This is my job as a mercenary!
You should be the one to retreat.


Alfonse
Don't worry. I know the terrain,
so I have an advantage!

I can handle things from here.
There's no shame in falling back!
Now, go, quickly!


Dieck
Understood. I'll regroup with Shanna
and company and return as soon as,
we're able.

And Prince Alfonse... If things take

out before there's trouble!

Dieck
I still don't get it! The employer
staying on the field while the

Shanna
I don't think it's all that strange...
That's just the kind of person
Prince Alfonse is.

And it's not just him either. Lots of
people involved with the Order of
Heroes are the same way, I think.


Dieck
Oh? And why do you think that is?

Shanna
The Order works with all sorts of
Heroes, many who never hesitate
to put their lives on the line.

It doesn't matter if they're noble born,
or commonfolk, or even where they
come from. All support each other.

Hey! Sort of like the Dieck
Mercenaries, isn't it?!


Dieck
...

It's true that risking your life for
the sake of others is a great thing.
Certainly helps me trust them...


Shanna
Yes! And trust is an important
thing for a mercenary!

Dieck
But! The folks at the top can't go
risking their lives thoughtlessly...

Stepping up when it's time to put
your life on the line is a mercenary's
job, damn it!


Shanna
Dieck, wait! Where are you going?

Dieck
I'm having a chat with Prince Alfonse.
There's something I need to ask him.

Alfonse
Hello, Dieck. You look like you have
something to say.

Dieck
First, I want to thank you. And to
apologize for letting you, a prince,
take on my work.

But I appreciate you helping us out.


Alfonse
No need to thank me. You, Shanna,
and the rest have done plenty to
help me as well.

Dieck
There is one thing I want to say,
though: You are the leader here.
You cannot be replaced.

When a situation like that comes up,
you should leave it to us mercs. It's
what we're here for.


Alfonse
There is no replacing you
either, Dieck.

Dieck
Huh? What's that supposed to mean?

You trying to say we're all equals?
Look, Prince, you're a good person,
but if you fight with that attitude...

Alfonse
Those ruled by emotion cannot
themselves rule. That is what
my father taught me.

Dieck
...

Alfonse
At the time, I was unable to retreat.
Had I, it would have placed the life
of [Summoner] at risk.

Everything would be lost if I held
my life so dear that I'd toss aside
[Summoner]'s life.

Or the life of any of the incredible
Heroes who have been summoned
here, for that matter.

The value of my life, your life,
[Summoner]'s life...

Weighing them all in my mind,
at that time, in that situation,
I called for what I thought best.

Having the person that knew the
terrain best stay behind, letting you
all regroup and bring support...

I thought that was our surest
road to victory.


Dieck
So you see yourself as just another
unit in the field, someone to leverage
should the situation call for it...

You are a strange prince indeed.

But is practicality all that weighs
on your decisions?


Alfonse
How do you mean?

Dieck
You claim to lead without letting
emotion cloud your judgment...

But deep down, there's still a part
of you where that stops holding
quite so true. Am I wrong?

Alfonse
...

Dieck
A long time ago, I was abandoned
by my employer, sacrifice like
the pawn I was.

We were ordered to charge into
a trap to distract from their exit.

My comrades were all killed.
I was kept alive only so I could
be tortured.

Surely you see the practicality there.
You're not so naive that you can't
understand their reasoning.

But something tells me you'd find
reason to take a different course...

You say you act in everyone's best
interest, but you are two minds:
practical and noble.

Neither part seems fully convinced
by what the other is saying.

Of course, the occasional nobility
on your part doesn't mean we can't
get along.

Zephiel
Pardon me, but you wouldn't
happen to be...

Guinivere
Brother!

Zephiel
Ah! So it truly is you, Guinivere.
And a grown-up future Guinivere
no less!

Guinivere
Yes. I suppose I am a different
Guinivere from the one you knew.
From an entirely separate world...

Zephiel
Of course... Perhpas I ought to call
you by your proper title then.

Guinivere
Please, just call me Guinivere,
Brother—or perhaps I should
say Prince Zephiel.

Zephiel
To see you all grown up like this,
Guinivere... I admit it has
stirred feelings from long ago.

I recall the Guinivere I knew always
calling after me, "Brother! Brother!"
following me everywhere I went.

That is how I remember Guinivere.


Guinivere
That was a long time ago now...but
I'm glad you remember those days
fondly. I had nearly forgotten.

Zephiel
I wonder... Have you met the grown
Zephiel yet? I believe one has been
summoned to this world as well...

I have yet to meet him myself.


Guinivere
The grown-up version of you?
Then...he is from my time?

Zephiel
I imagine so. I do hope I turned out
as well as you seem to have.

I hope I was able to serve the
people of Bern well, free from
shame or embarrassment.

Guinivere
Where— How did I wind up here?

It feels as if I was led here...


Zephiel
...

Guinivere
Brother!

Idunn
...

Guinivere
And the Dark Priestess... So, you've
come to this world as well.

Zephiel
It has been quite some time,
Guinivere...

Guinivere
Do not tell me you detest the people
of Askr and seek the destruction
of this world as well, Brother.

Zephiel
As a Hero, I do not rule here.

I have no intention of devoting effort
to freeing the people of this world.


Guinivere
...

Zephiel
When finally I return to Bern,
however, I will stand true to my
conviction and silence the world.

Guinivere
Is there nothing that can sway you?

Why must people fight each other?
We need to support each other in
order to build a better future.


Zephiel
There have been countless
opportunities, each of them
squandered, wasted.

By surrendering the continent to
dragonkind, a world of peace will
rise in its place.

That is my life's work, my purpose.


Idunn
...

Zephiel
If you must protest, Guinivere, you
may attempt to stop me. And we will
see whose ideals win out.

The future I envision cannot coexist
with the world you would seek to
create.

The only way to decide what will
come to pass is through conflict.


Guinivere
But, Brother! Wait—don't...go!

...

It seems conflict may be unavoidable.
...Are people truly so despicable?

Guinivere
Princess Sharena, do you have
a moment to talk?
Sharena
Of course! Should we do so over tea?
That seems like the proper way for
two princesses to bond!

Guinivere
I appreciate the invitation, but some
other time, perhaps. I was hoping
to ask you something...

It's about the young Prince Zephiel
who has joined the ranks of Heroes...

Do you think it possible that he could
take a path other than King Zephiel's,
and envision another sort of future?

Sharena
Hmm... I wonder...

I think if it's possible for him to walk
the same path, it's equally likely for
him to take an entirely new direction.

I think I've heard something like that
from [Summoner], at least.


Guinivere
...

Sharena
Oh, right! I've seen it in an entry
recorded in the library of Askr
as well. I remember now.

The histories we've recorded from
other worlds are each just one of
many possibilities.

And the possibilities are endless!


Guinivere
So then that means that it's possible
there's a world in which King Zephiel
does not bring upheaval to Bern?

If I share Bern's fate with the prince
and convince him of another course...
could we avoid such tragedy?

Sharena
I don't see why not! Although, I can't
say I know for sure.

But even if you talk Prince Zephiel
out of following in King Zephiel's
footsteps, you never know...

It could grow into a situation you
never foresaw. You could cause
an entirely new tragedy!

Sharena
...All this thinking about different
worlds and histories is making
my head spin.

Guinivere
My apologies, Princess Sharena.
Now, I've taken up enough of
your time...

...

Even if I can create a future where
my brother does not seek to bring
despair to the world...

I cannot know if something even
worse will be created as a result.

If I try to change Prince Zephiel's
future, will I have done something
good for his world?
