Idunn
In my world, I was kept in a place of
endless darkness. A void of shadow.
In the darkness, I dreamt an empty
dream...for a long time.
I, too, am empty now, so I am not
troubled by appetites and desires.
My reason to be is the destruction of
humanity—to free my world...
But...this is not my world. I wonder...
Does this world require the same
freedom? It's...confusing.
All that is certain is that I...must not
stay here, at this castle.
Confusion and power do not...
combine well.

Lugh
Huh. Yeah, I understand why you'd
want to leave the castle now.
But...do you have anywhere to go?
You were just summoned, so it's all
new territory here, right?

Idunn
Yes... I have no place to go. And I
know nothing of this world.
But as a Demon Dragon, I do know
I cannot stay here...

Lugh
Hmm... Seems like you're dead set on
leaving then. If that's the case, I'll tag
along!
If we can sort out your reason for
being here now, you'll come back
to the castle again, won't you?

Idunn
...

Lugh
H-hey! Wait up!
...How are you so fast!
Alfonse
Any sign over there, Sharena?
Sharena
Nothing yet!
Where could Idunn have gone? And
why? Was something troubling her?

Thea
Hey, what are you two up to?

Sharena
Oh, hi, Thea! Actually, we were
looking for Idunn... Have you seen
her?

Thea
Idunn? The...Dark Priestess? She left
the castle, did she?

Sue
Apologies. I overheard you asking
about Idunn... I saw her speaking with
Lugh at the castle gate this morning.
I was in the western spire at the time,
however, so I was unable to hear
what they were talking about...
Sharena
Wait—you were able to see them all
the way from there?! They must have
looked like specks of dust!
Alfonse
Now that you mention it, I haven't
seen Lugh around either... Perhaps
the two of them left together.

Sharena
Yeah! They could have just gone to
town to do a little shopping together!
Alfonse
I—uhh... That seems unlikely.

Thea
Whatever the case...we cannot just
stand by, can we? Lugh would have
told someone where he was going...

Sue
Right. We should search for them.
Please, allow me to assist.

Alfonse
Thanks. Your help means a lot. Both
of you.

Thea
Are you comfortable riding a pegasus,
Princess Sharena? We could look for
them from the sky.

Sharena
Nice plan, Thea. I'll be the navigator!
Don't worry—I give perfect directions.

Alfonse
Great. Then Sue and I will try to
follow their trail on the ground.

Sue
The sooner we leave, the sooner we
can find them. Let's go.

イドゥン
私の世界にあるのは…
終わることのない、永遠の闇。
夜よりも濃い、尽きることのない漆黒。
果てなく深い闇の中で
私はずっと白く、虚ろな夢を
見続けていました。
私の中には何もありません。
想いも、希望も、明日も、昨日も。
私の中で渦巻いているのは
人の世を滅ぼす破壊の力。
世界を解放するための力…
しかし…今の私にはわからないのです。
この世界は解放を…求めているのか。
ただひとつ、確かなことは
私が…この城にいては
いけないということ。
私の迷いが破壊の力と交わったとき
それはきっと…皆が望まぬ未来へと
繋がってしまうでしょう。

ルゥ
だから
城を出ていこうって言うんだね。
でも、一人で行くあてはあるの?
この世界に呼ばれたばかりで
右も左もわからないんでしょ?

イドゥン
行くあてなど…ありません。
私にわかるのは、魔竜の私が
ここにいてはいけないということだけ…

ルゥ
うーん。だったらぼくも行くよ。
行かないでって引き止めても
納得してくれそうにないし…
どこかでぼくたちみんなが
一緒にいる理由が見つけられれば
城に戻ってくれるんだよね?

イドゥン
…………

ルゥ
あっ! ちょっと待ってったら。
歩くの速いよー!
アルフォンス
シャロン、そっちはどうかな?
シャロン
いませんでした…!
イドゥンさん、いったい
どこに行ってしまったんでしょう?
何か悩みを
抱えていたのでしょうか…

ティト
お二人とも、どうされたのですか?

シャロン
あっ、ティトさん! 実はですね、
イドゥンさんの姿が見えなくて…

ティト
暗闇の巫女…イドゥンが?
城からいなくなったのですか?

スー
アルフォンス、シャロン…
彼女なら、今朝、城門で
ルゥと話しているのを見たわ。
西の尖塔の上にいたから
会話までは聞こえなかったけど。
シャロン
そんな遠くから城門にいる
ふたりが見えたんですか!?
豆粒ほどの大きさなのに!
アルフォンス
そういえばルゥも見当たらない。
もしかすると、ふたり一緒に
城の外に出ていった可能性も…

シャロン
なるほど! ふたりで仲良く
街に買い物に行ったとか?
アルフォンス
ふたりの関係性を踏まえても
その可能性は限りなく低いかな…

ティト
いずれにせよ…
放っておくわけにはいきません。

スー
探しに行ったほうがいい。
私も協力するわ。

アルフォンス
二人とも…
ありがとう、助かるよ…

ティト
シャロン王女は天馬に乗ってもらえますか?
空からふたりを探しましょう。

シャロン
ティトさん、わかりました!
道案内はバッチリしますよ。

アルフォンス
じゃあ、僕とスーは
地上から彼女たちを追いかけよう。

スー
ええ。ふたり共…
すぐに見つかるといいのだけど…

Sharena
Good morning, Idunn! The weather
sure is great again today, don't you
think?

Idunn
...
Sharena
I, uh... Is there...anything I can do for
you? Any help you need or anything?

Idunn
No... I need nothing.
Sharena
I-I see. Well...if you think of anything,
don't hesitate to let me know, OK?

Idunn
...
Alfonse
I see... And she said that word for
word?
Sharena
Yes... I was just trying to get closer to
Idunn, but...
Alfonse
You know, I heard that she was
once a kind of holy being known
as a divine dragon.
But during a war between humankind
and dragons, she was remade into a
demon dragon and...she lost herself.
Sharena
Hmm... So Idunn knows what it's like
to be a victim of war.

Alfonse
Yes. So even if she doesn't always fit
in easily, we should remember, she
still belongs.

Sharena
You're right. I'll have Idunn's back
whenever I can help her out!

Sue
...

Alfonse
Hello, Sue! Are you...looking for
someone?

Sue
I'm looking for my grandpa...
His name is Dayan.
Alfonse
Dayan, hm? I don't believe any
Hero by that name is in the
castle at the moment...

Sue
Dayan is a hero and the pride of the
Kutolah tribe. And he is my grandp—
my grandfather.

Alfonse
I see. You're looking for someone
among the Heroes who you already
know. Someone who's a hero to you.

Sue
Grandpa's bravery and integrity are
the pride of my tribe. He stands out
as a hero even among those here...
So, if this castle is where Heroes
from different worlds gather, I would
expect to find him here.
But...I cannot. And I'm left to wonder
why that would be so...

Alfonse
I can't say I know either, but...I have
some idea who might! You
should ask [Summoner]!

Sue
...Ask [Summoner], hm?
Thank you, Alfonse. I will see what
[Summoner] has to say.

Background image: 002_PlainForestInside

Anna
Where are you headed in such
a rush, Lugh?

Lugh
Oh! Hello, Commander Anna! I'm just
going around to talk to all the Heroes!
This castle is great! There are Heroes
with legendary tomes—even Heroes
who know magic I've never heard of!
There's something new to learn and
someone new to talk to every day
around here!

Anna
I see! Well, I'm glad you're finding
your days here fulfilling.

Lugh
Yeah, and it's not ONLY magic! Some
mages here take to the battlefield on
horseback—or on pegasusback!
Hmm... I wonder if I'd be better
at fighting if I rode a horse...or a
pegasus for that matter.

Anna
It's possible... You'd be able to cover
more ground if you were riding one,
so it's feasible you could do more.

Lugh
Really? Yeah, I guess it would let me
get around WAY faster... I'm going to
go practice right now!
Anna
W-wait! Lugh! Don't rush into it!
That kid sure is in high spirits. I hope
he doesn't get hurt somehow...

Thea
Excuse me, Commander Anna... Do
you have a moment?

Anna
Hm? Do you need something?
Weapons? Armor? I can get you
either-and for a reasonable price!

Thea
No, no! My equipment is sorted for
the time being, actually...
I was hoping to ask you a favor. I'd
like to sign on as a mercenary for the
Order of Heroes.
Anna
Huh? Well...
How would it be different from just
being another one of the Heroes in
the castle? We all fight, after all.
So I guess I don't understand... Why
set yourself apart as a hired soldier?

Thea
Well, if that's how it is, I'll be fine
without. It's just...what I'm used to.
Anna
Oh, you don't want to be treated
any...differently, then?

Anna
If you don't mind me prying, what
made you want to sign a mercenary
contract with us?

Thea
Up until now...I fought as a mercenary
with the pegasus knights of Ilia. Like I
said, it's what I'm used to.
So I thought, since I'm fighting here in
Askr, I should sign on as a mercenary
here as well.
Of course, I expected no outrageous
payment or anything.
Just whatever rate my unique set of
skills fetches on the open market in
this world...

Anna
...
I understand, Thea.
There are many reasons we do
what we do... Glory... Peace... Love...
And of course...Memory.
I of all people understand that. I'll see
what I can do about having a contract
drawn up for you.

Thea
Thank you for indulging me.
You can trust that, as a mercenary
under contract, I will earn my pay.

Reason to Fight - C[edit | edit source]

Nameplate Text
Background image: 002_PlainForestInside

Lugh
Look! Over there! Oh, and that way
too! I've never seen flowers so
beautiful... And they're everywhere!

Idunn
...

Lugh
There's no arguing whether Askr is a
good country. Those folks we met
even offered us food. Us! Strangers!

Idunn
Hmm... A good country? Good for...
humans, you mean?

Lugh
Well, yeah! That's the reason we
were summoned here! To fight to
bring peace to a good place.

Idunn
Fight...for peace... Why is peace
desirable?
Lord Zephiel ordered me to erase
humanity and set the world on the
proper path...
That is not peace, so is that
something...I should not do?
My purpose, the reason this power
of mine exists, is to end humanity...

Lugh
N-no! Think about it! We need peace
to live happily! It's hard to be happy
if you're fighting all the time, right?

Idunn
I am the Demon Dragon. The peace
you hold dear is nothing to me.

Lugh
Well that won't do... There has to be
SOMETHING in this world that'll get
you to want to fight for peace, Idunn!
Sharena
We've looked everywhere! Where are
those two? I thought they'd visit town
after leaving the castle for sure, but...

Thea
Given the twig-like nature of Lugh's
legs, it's likely they didn't get far
before needing to stop to rest...
They must've gone another direction.
...
I never imagined...even after setting
eyes on her in this world...that I
would be helping save her.
Here she is not part of Bern's army,
no. Yet I cannot forget that she is the
Dark Priestess...and a threat to all life.

Idunn, over here! I want to show you
this spot!

Idunn
This...spot?

Sharena
Yes! Look—it's the flowerbed all the
Heroes tend to!

Idunn
What does...it do?

Sharena
I'll show you! Want to try tending
some flowers?

Idunn
Tend...flowers?
Sharena
That's right! That corner over there is
still open, so why don't we make that
your flowerbed! It'll be fun!

Idunn
...
Sharena
I-is that a no? You don't need to be
shy! The other Heroes and I will help
you learn!

Sharena
Here are some flower seeds... Try
planting whichever ones seem best
to you!

Idunn

Is there a...reason for this?

Background image: 002_PlainForestInside

Alfonse
Have you had a chance to discuss
Dayan with [Summoner]?

Sue
Yes, just a moment ago, actually...
I came right out and asked why I
can't find Grandpa in the castle.
It seems summoning a Hero is not an
exact matter. As far as who appears,
[Summoner] can't choose.
I didn't understand the entire
explanation, to be honest...
But the connections that call Heroes
to this world from their own are rare
and precious.
But if a Hero has that connection,
they will come into this world—but
we can't predict when.
At least, that's what I remember from
what [Summoner] said...

Alfonse
Hmm... Actually, this is starting to
sound familiar...

Sue
The connection to my grandpa
must not yet exist.
That would explain why he isn't here.
I guess that's all there is to it...

Lugh: Anima Child - B[edit | edit source]

Nameplate Text
Background image: 002_PlainForestInside

Lugh
I have to ask, Sue... How are you so
good at riding horses?

Sue
How? Hm... I'm not sure. I've been
riding so long, I don't really think
about it anymore...

Lugh
Isn't there some kind of secret you
can teach me?

Sue
To ride a horse...it's important to
understand the horse. Treat the
horse's feelings as your own...

Lugh
All right! I just need to become one
with the mind of a horse. Easy!

Lugh
Wh-whoa! Whuh— Waah!
Keeping my balance on this horse is
way harder than I expected it to be!

Sue
Be calm. Hold the reins gently. Try
not to confuse or startle the horse.

Lugh
Don't confuse... Don't startle... OK...
H-how's this? Feels like I'm doing it!
OK! Now...time to try casting some
spells and— Wh-whoa!

Sue
Lugh! Keep both hands on the reins!

Lugh
Wh-whaaa!
OK, settle down! Easy... There's
nothing to be afraid of. It's all right...

Sue
The horse seems to have calmed
down... Good.

Lugh
As soon as I took a hand off the
reins, I thought I was going to be
thrown off for sure!

Sue
It doesn't seem to be something that
comes naturally to you, unfortunately.
Where is...your tome, by the way?

Lugh
Oh no! I must have dropped it when I
had to grab the reins with both hands
again! Wh-where was that?

Sue
It must have fallen somewhere in this
direction. Come on—I'll help you find
it in no time.

Lugh
Sorry to be so much trouble...
Riding a horse is a lot harder than I
thought it'd be, though. Maybe I'm
not cut out for it...

I've just finished putting the finishing
touches on your contract, Thea.

Thea
Oh! Thank you, Commander Anna.
I appreciate you going to the trouble.

Anna
After some thought, I decided that,
since the one who summoned you
here was[Summoner]...
Askr shouldn't be your employer—
it should be [Summoner]!
But don't worry... The Order of Heroes
will take care of your payment.
So anyway, here's the contract. You
can take a moment to look it over...

Thea
... ... ...
Everything seems to be in order.
I'll just mark it with my seal...here.
Now, with the contract in place,
please let the Order of Heroes know
my strength is at their command.

Anna
Of course! And I'll look forward to
seeing you on the battlefield!

Lugh
Phew! We've been going for a while
now... Maybe we should stop and rest
our legs a bit!
Hey, uh... You think we should've
said something to someone before
we left the castle?
And...shouldn't we start heading back
soon? People might be starting to
worry, you know?

Idunn
You may go back. You need not stay
with me.

Lugh
Yes, I do! I do need! I mean, we're
friends, aren't we? I mean, we aren't
enemies, at least... Right?
It's just— I don't know. I don't think
of YOU as a stranger, I guess.

Idunn
...

Lugh
Have I told you I have a twin brother?
His name's Raigh.
He's smarter and stronger than me,
but...he gets into trouble if he's left
alone. It makes me worry about him.
You remind me of Raigh, Idunn...

Idunn
...

Lugh
Look! I can see village lights on that
hillside! Let's go see if we can stay
the night.
Er... I'll go ask, and you can just wait
here for a moment. Be right back!
Alfonse
I think it's time to return to the castle,
Sue. It's been three days since they
left...We need a bigger search party.

Sue
But if what those people along the
road said is true, they shouldn't be
much farther ahead now.
Alfonse
What do— Why would Idunn decide
to suddenly leave the castle?
Do you think she could be
questioning whether she wants
to fight alongside us?
I should have realized sooner...

Sue
Life is a gift that grows and links with
other life. Idunn came as an answer
to [Summoner]'s call.
Her arrival was no coincidence. Idunn
is here for a reason.
Alfonse
Agreed. Perhaps Lugh thought the
same, and that's why he went with
her.
Hmm... I've got a new plan. Will you
stick with me a while longer, Sue?

Sue
Let's go, then.

Alfonse
So, I've been seeing Idunn out a lot
more... Did I see her...raising flowers?

Sharena
Yeah! She didn't seem interested at
first, but now it seems like she's
diligently tending her little garden!

Alfonse
Compared to when I first met her,
Idunn seems to have really softened.

Sharena
It's true! And because of the whole
thing with the flowers, I've been able
to get to know her better too!

Alfonse
Oh? My first impression was that you
were just hovering over her as she
focused on her flowers...
But you introduced her to the garden,
and that's what's awoken this in her.
And that's a good thing.

Idunn
...

Sharena
Hello, Idunn! I see your flowers are
growing quite well! This bud here will
be blossoming tomorrow, no doubt...

Idunn
Yes... You're right.
At first, I did not see the reason for
this garden to exist.
Why devote myself to flowers? They
are...momentary. Meaningless.
despite that—because of it,
perhaps...
I feel I must...protect it. Help it.

Sharena
Idunn... That's great!

Idunn
This is...the first time I have felt this
way. First time since...I could have
known...this feeling. Long ago.
Sharena
Hey! Is it...starting to rain? The skies
were clear a moment ago!
Let's get inside, Idunn. We don't
want to catch a cold!

Idunn
Yes...

Alfonse
Sue, is...is something worrying you?
You look lost in thought.

Sue
...
Grandpa is greater—stronger and
braver—than any person I'd
ever met before coming here.
Here, though, for the first time,
I'm surrounded by Heroes who
rival Grandpa in greatness.
It makes no sense that I should be
here instead of him.

Alfonse
We needed YOU, Sue. That's all
there is to it.

Sue
I understand that, but...I still have so
much to learn. I'm a far cry from the
greatness of my grandfather.
I'm here because I was called by my
connection, but...does that mean it's
right when others could do more?

Alfonse
I know it's difficult to see, but try
considering the longer view...
Todays grow into tomorrows. And a
tomorrow may come when you grow
to be greater than even Dayan.
That's what I believe—and I'm sure
[Summoner] does too.

Sue
O-oh.

Alfonse
You should believe it too.

Sue
Alfonse... Thank you.
I think I understand now... I'll think on
what you said. And I'll remember I
was brought here for a reason.

Lugh
Hey, Thea... Can I ask you something?
How're you so good at riding pegasi?

Thea
How? Hm... I'm not sure. Training to
be a pegasus knight takes years of
training, so that is likely the answer.

Lugh
Isn't there some kind of secret you
can teach me?

Thea
To ride a pegasus...it's important to
understand the pegasus. Treat the
pegasus's feelings as your own...

Lugh
All right! I just need to become one
with the mind of a pegasus!
Hm... This conversation seems
strangely familiar...

Thea
Pegasi are temperamental animals,
so we have to start by gaining their
trust and building a relationship.

Lugh
Got it!

Thea
This is... Wow! I chose her because
I knew she was gentle, but I didn't
think she'd accept you so quickly.

Lugh
She's so friendly! Do you think she'd
let me ride her?

Thea
Oh, Lugh, I'm sorry to tell you, but...
pegasi don't allow men to ride them.

Lugh
R-Really?!

Thea
I'm sorry... I should have thought to
mention that sooner... I didn't mean
to get your hopes up for nothing.

Lugh
It's OK, Thea. Sorry for taking up so
much of your time with my questions.
I'll just have to think of another way!

Alfonse
Hello there, Thea! I saw you fighting
extremely hard in yesterday's battle...
I must say—I was impressed!

Thea
I fight best when I'm being paid.
Most of the Heroes here are fighting
for peace, the thought of payment
not even crossing their minds...
I know better. Fighting has a cost-so
if you're fighting for free, that cost is
entirely on your shoulders.
Alfonse
Yes, the cost of war is high...

Thea
I come from the frozen country of Ilia.
I have seen people taken by cold and
people taken by empty stomachs.
Money can save lives, including those
of the ones you care about. Why put
myself at risk for less? Honor?
Honor won't fill your belly or keep
you warm during long winter nights.
I'm sorry... I didn't mean to say all of
that. It just...came out.

Alfonse
No, don't worry. I appreciate you
telling me all of that. I think I better
understand your perspective now.

Thea
Well, if you'll excuse me, I must start
preparing for the next battle now.
Alfonse
...
"Honor won't fill your belly..." I wasn't
expecting such heavy conversation to
come out of a simple compliment...

Lugh
Thank you so much! Take care!
Idunn, wave your hand at the nice
people... Like me.

Idunn
Like...this?

Lugh
Wow! Those kids really loved you,
huh! What's it like to be so popular?
...I, uh, don't know if you heard...
They said those kids lost their
families to war. They're all alone.

Idunn
...

Lugh
But they're all still doing their best
to live on and keep smiling. I'm glad
they all found each other.
Raigh and I grew up in a situation not
so different from theirs, so I know
how important it can be to smile.

Idunn
...

Lugh
By the way, when we were leaving, it
looked like they gave you something...
Was it...a present?

Idunn
Yes... They called it...a picture?
It is the children, you, and...me.

Lugh
Wow, what a great present, Idunn!
And look—they drew both of us with
HUGE smiles, Idunn!
Seems like they put a lot of thought
and care into it... This must be how
you look to the children, Idunn!

Idunn
Can I smile like that? I wonder...

Lugh
Of course you can!

Idunn
I know nothing of peace or why this
world should continue when others
must not...
I do know, however, that I do not
wish for the children to lose their
smiles and laughter.

Lugh
You have the power to protect their
smiles, Idunn.

Idunn
Me? Protect...them?
Hm.
Alfonse
Idunn, Lugh! There you are! I'm so
glad we finally found you! Are you
two all right?
Sharena
Everyone was so worried! They'll be
so relieved we finally found you!

Lugh
O-oh, I'm so sorry! We didn't mean
to make anyone worry. I thought we
would be back sooner!

Idunn
I...was the one that left abruptly.
Please accept my apologies.

Sue
You are both safe. That is what
matters most.

Thea
Idunn... I don't know anything about
you other than, in our world, we were
enemies... And we never spoke.

Idunn
...

Thea
I want to speak with you now. I want
to set aside the past and for you to
fight alongside us as our ally.
Alfonse
That's right, Idunn! And if anything is
troubling you, don't hesitate to come
to us to talk about it, all right?

Sue
Yes. The reason we worried when we
thought you lost is that, to us, you
are a friend. You are one of us.

Idunn
Thank...you...very much.

Alfonse
All right, I think it's about time we
start heading back to the castle now.

Idunn
I feel...something...warm. Something
from the past... A memory of a dream.
A feeling I once knew...
I thought— I am empty inside, yet...
there the feeling is...

Lugh
It's all right, Idunn... Even if you were
empty inside, that would just be more
room to make something new!

Idunn
Perhaps... But it is not that time...
I may have found my reason to fight
for this world—and something I must
protect.

Sharena
Whew! That was some heavy rain, but
thankfully, it looks like the flowers are
all right... You must be lucky, Idunn!

Idunn
...

Sharena
Looks like we only lost a few petals
and are otherwise still in full bloom!

Idunn
Life can be...resilient.

Sharena
These flowers have YOU to thank for
their resilience—you and the love you
poured into them.

Idunn
I poured...what on them?

Sharena
Love! And like you did with these
flowers, you can help ensure a future
for other life too!

Idunn
My reason...for being in this world
remains unknown to me.
But...perhaps here my purpose is...
not decided.

Sharena
That's right! Just like these flowers
here were buds only yesterday, we're
all growing and blossoming!

Idunn
Life is...bright. Colorful.

Sharena
True! These flowers especially...
Actually...the raindrops on the petals
remind me of your eyes, Idunn!
I feel like each blossom is a memory
we share—a memory of friendship!
So let's keep the blossoms coming!

Alfonse
You look to be in great spirits, Sue!
And you're on a real tear hitting the
bull's-eyes too...

Sue
Yes, my heart is calm...and the voice
of the wind is clear in my ears.
Alfonse, it's clear you expect much of
me—as does [Summoner].
I will do my best to rise and meet
those expectations.

Alfonse
Good. And remember...you are not
supposed to fill Dayan's shoes. Seek
and focus on your own personal talents.

Sue
Right. I will listen for the guidance of
Mother Earth and Father Sky. They'll
lead me down the right path.

Alfonse
And don't give up hope that you'll
see Dayan here someday. There are
a lot of tomorrows yet to come.

Sue
When that tomorrow comes, I want to
be ready... I want to show off exactly
what I'm made of!
For now, I must focus on my training
and developing the courage I need to
protect all those dear to me.

Anna
Hey, Lugh! How did your mounted
practice go?

Lugh
Well, Commander... It doesn't seem
I'm cut out for either one.
And the worst part is, I wasted other
people's time just to find out I'm no
good at something.

Anna
Hm. I see... Well, even if you can't
ride a horse or a pegasus, that's
nothing to get down about.
There are plenty of Heroes here who
fight extremely well without either a
horse or a pegasus!

Lugh
Yeah... I guess...

Anna
I understand how you feel, Lugh, but
at least you had the experience!
Finding out what you can do, little by
little, is something I think all Heroes
experience as they grow stronger.

Lugh
Hmm... You're right.
There's no reason to overextend
myself. It'd be better to focus on
honing the skills I already have!
Thanks, Commander Anna. You really
helped open my eyes!
I'll just concentrate on becoming
a full-fledged mage for now!

Anna
Just keep at it, Lugh, and I expect I'll
be seeing good things from you!

Alfonse
I've been thinking about your reason
for choosing a mercenary life, Thea.
So you can give to those who need it.

Thea
Well...the payment I earn in this world
cannot be used in Ilia, I'm afraid, so...
I'll be using my earnings to continue
living as a pegasus knight of Ilia.

Alfonse
Oh, I see! That must be pretty
important to you.

Thea
We knights of Ilia take an oath that
says a contract made as a mercenary
cannot be betrayed.
Even if we have to fight family...we
follow our employer's orders to
ensure the future of our homeland.
My strength is yours. I will carry out
any mission, no matter what, for Ilia.
That is my oath.

Alfonse
The words of one who truly cares for
their country... I care for my country
as well... I would give everything...
Thea, will you lend us your strength
and help protect the people of this
country as if they were your own?

Thea
Of course. That's included as part
of the contract—and I never break
a contract once it's been made.
I swear, on my pride as an Ilian, this
lance will protect Askr and its people.
