What I wear reflects on my kingdom. I could always use a little assistance.

Corrin... We need to have a talk about what constitutes an appropriate gift.
— Xander, receiving the bath towel accessory.
You always remember my birthday and force me to celebrate... Thank you, Corrin.

I'll have to ignore it for now, though. The task at hand is more important.

You swing timidly, without resolve. You must genuinely try to kill me.
— Xander, as the boss of Chapter 1.
What foolishness. I will not tolerate traitors in our midst!
— Xander, as an enemy in Birthright Chapter 6
How reckless. Corrin hasn't prepared you for this fight. Well, his/her failings will be your undoing. Prepare to die.
— Xander, as an enemy in Birthright Chapter 12.
[...] I'm not your brother anymore. Put that notion out of your head. By your own choice, we are enemies now. Prepare to fight!

Fight without fear or hesitation. Don't hold back—I promise you that I won't. [...] That's the spirit. Come at me!

We meet again, little prince/princess. Because I have regarded you as my beloved brother/sister all these years... I'll give you one more chance. Are you certain you won't side with Nohr?

We now stand as enemies opposite each other on the battlefield. [...]
— Xander, fighting Corrin, as an enemy in Revelation Chapter 13.
Ha... Camilla... Iago told me you had failed in your mission. I never thought you'd turn traitor, too. Are you still a proud Nohrian royal? Or are you just like Corrin? [...] Trust him/her? Don't be a fool. I won't listen to any more of your lies. You've chosen your side—opposite me. Prepare yourself, Camilla. [...]
— Xander, fighting Camilla, as an enemy in Revelation Chapter 13.
