A Knight-Filled Sky/Script
|“||Maria and Minerva's home, Macedon, is the birthplace of wyverns. It was known as a bountiful land of peace. That changed when Prince Michalis aligned his goals with those of Dolhr… against Minerva's wishes. He turned Macedon's wyvern knights to war, striking fear into hearts across many lands… As Marth and his allies approach, the amassed wyverns blot out the sun.||”|
— Chapter 22 Opening
Man: A great sage lives in the village to the north. He keeps to himself though! I've never met him. Nobody has!
With Starsphere and Lightsphere
Gotoh: Marth! You have done well to make it here. I am Gotoh. As instructed, you have brought me the Lightsphere and Starsphere. I now grant you the only magic capable of countering Imhullu, Starlight. Take it and bring an end to the wickedness of the Dark Pontifex, Gharnef.
Without both Starsphere and Lightsphere
Gotoh: Marth! You have not heeded my words! I require the Starsphere and Lightsphere both. Without them, I cannot create Starlight for you. I do not think you can defeat Gharnef… If you cannot claim Falchion from Gharnef, you have little hope of defeating Medeus. If you still wish to try, you must gain much in experience and reach the pinnacle of your strength. That is not all… You must also gather mighty blades like Gradivus, Mercurius, and the Devil Axe. Unless you make these preparations, Medeus's defeat is scarcely possible. This is the harshest road to victory. Are you truly willing to walk this path? Think long and hard on this decision. Choose wisely.
(The village gates don't close)
Michalis initiates a battle
Michalis: Damn you, Minerva! I will not be put down! Now, quake in terror before my wyvern knights!
Malledus: Prince! We have discovered the location of Thabes! Far north of Khadein in the desert of Mamorthod lies the city of illusion… None who have entered Thabes have returned… or so it is said. Prince… what should we do?
Marth: Malledus…in order to retrieve Falchion and save my sister, we must step boldly into danger. Gharnef! I vow to liberate the beauteous land you despoil!

|“||Macedon is Minerva and Maria's homeland. It is the birth land of flying dragons and is widely known for being a peaceful and rich kingdom. But the ambitious Prince Michalis ignored his sister's opposition and aided Dolhr with its ambitions. He led the Macedonian Dragoons to attack numerous countries, to instill fear in the people. And, right now, he has gathered his soaring army to fight a final battle with Marth...||”|
— Chapter 17 Intro
(Michalis flies to the village)
Michalis: Gotoh, the allied army has come. This place is going to become a battlefield. Please leave to safety.
Gotoh: Mmm... I understand. But Michalis, you truly are a fool.
Michalis: !.... Why did you call me a fool!?
Gotoh: You love Minerva and she deeply respects you. Since you were young, you two both discussed the future of this country, and put much effort into both martial arts and study. With your combined strength, Macedon would eventually become as strong a country as Archanea. However you let yourself be deceived by Gharnef, becoming obsessed with pointless ambition, which would lead this country down the path of ruin...
Michalis: ...That is already in the past. Minerva betrayed me and betrayed this country... But, Gotoh, I haven't lost yet. I still have the Macedonian royal family's treasured Iote's Shield. With this I needn't feat even arrows. That boy... I will personally slay Altea's Marth, for you to see. That is my final will, as king of Macedon!
Gotoh: Really...? Then I have nothing more to say. Go! Michalis, go and punish yourself, for the crime of killing your own father!!
(Michalis returns to the castle)
Old Woman: It seems that a great bishop resides at the northern village. But he doesn't like humans, so he doesn't speak with anybody.
Without the Starsphere and Lightsphere
Gotoh: Marth, you still haven't brought with you the Starsphere and Lightsphere? It is unfortunate, but I cannot create Starlight. You must give up all thoughts of defeating Gharnef. Without recovering the Falchion from him, the battle against Medeus will be very difficult. But if you're still determined, then you must gain more experience, until you have reached the limits of your body's power. Then you must arm yourself with mighty weapons such as the Mercurius, Gradivus, or Parthia. That way, defeating Medeus may not be completely impossible. .....But, Marth..... This road will be very difficult. Are you prepared...? Think carefully about everything, before making your decision to advance.
(The village gates don't close)
With the Starsphere and Lightsphere
Gotoh: Ah, Lord Marth, I am Gotoh. Welcome here. Really...? You have fulfille/d our promise and brought both the Starsphere and Lightsphere here. Excellent. Then I can create the only spell that can penetrate Imhullu, Starlight. Very well, take this, and use it to defeat the evil priest, Gharnef.
Michalis: Damn you, Minerva... I still haven't lost. I'll show you to fear the Macedonian Dragoons!
Michalis: My dreams... have been shattered... Forgive me... citizens of Macedon...
Malledus: Prince Marth, I have already found the location of Thabes! To the far north of Khadein, at the Mamorthod Desert, there appears to be an illusion town. But those who went to Thabes never came back. So, what will you do?
Marth: ... I must go there, to reclaim the Falchion and rescue my sister. Gharnef! Watch me. I won't let this beautiful world fall into your hands!!
|“||The Macedon that Minerva and Maria remembered best was one of peace: a quiet, prosperous kingdom famed for the flying beasts favored by dracoknights. But then their brother, Prince Michalis, succumbed to his lust for power. Despite his sisters’ adamant opposition, he swore allegiance to Dolhr; and when Macedon’s Dragoons took flight, the world suffered. Even now that the tides had turned, Michalis took position for one last stand. Dracoknights filled the sky end to end, eager to pluck Marth from the Earth.||”|
— Chapter 22 intro
(Michalis flies to northern village)
Michalis: Lord Gotoh, the League has begun its attack. I wish for you to move someplace safe until the fighting has ended.
Gotoh: Why not just end this folly now, Michalis?
Michalis: Folly? What folly?
Gotoh: You loved your younger sister so much. It pains me to see you quarrel. If you and Minerva had worked as one, Macedon might have become a great kingdom- greater even than Archanea, perhaps. But instead, you let Gharnef trick you into destroying your family, and your kingdom with it.
Michalis: ...I cannot undo what is done. My father’s blood will always be on my hands, just as Minerva’s betrayal of her brother and country will be on hers. And Macedon has not been destroyed, not yet. So long as I carry Iote’s Shield, the League’s arrows cannot fell me.
Gotoh: Very well. And if you win? What then?
Michalis: If I win, I will tell you. Right now, my only goal is to gut that Altean prince who leads the League. My pride as Macedonian king rests upon it.
Gotoh: I see... Then we’ve nothing more to discuss, have we?
Gotoh: The weight of his father’s murder threatens to crush him...Poor boy. ...Poor fool.
Houses and villages
- Old Woman: A great sage lives in the village to the north. He’s not very sociable, though. Hardly anyone ever sees him.
(Visiting Village with one or no Orb[s])
Gotoh: Marth, Marth, why did you not heed me? Why did you not bring the two orbs? Without them, I cannot make Starlight for you. You will not be able to break through Gharnef’s Imhullu magic, not take Falchion from his clutches. Without Anri’s sword, your battle with Medeus will be fraught with peril. If you still mean to face him, you will need all the strength you can muster, every advantage you can find. If you have weapons like the sword Mercurius or the lance Gradivus, the fight may not be lost... Hmm... I, too, may be able to help in some other way. Let me think on it. Regardless, your quest has just become more difficult than you realize. I hope you are ready.
(Visiting Village with both Orbs)
Gotoh: You have the Lightsphere and Starsphere with you? Well done! Now I can create Starlight for you.
(A chime is sounded)
Gotoh: ...There. It is finished. Take this with you; it is the only magic capable of breaking through Imhullu. Use it to stop that fiend Gharnef once and for all.
Michalis: Made it this far, have you? Don’t gloat yet. My Dragoons and I still rule these skies!
Michalis: Minerva, I have missed you, Sister. Let us embrace one last time.
Michalis: Well? Strike! A moment’s hesitation spells death on the battlefield. I know I taught you better.
Minerva: You will not lay down your lance and walk the right path?
Michalis: Don’t be a child. There are no right paths; just mine and yours, two that will never cross.
Minerva: Very well. Then you leave me no choice. Embrace you I shall, Brother!
Michalis: M-Maria? What are you doing here?
(With Palla, Catria or Est)
Michalis: The Whitewings? Ha! Come to try and slay your king?
Michalis: I’ve been waiting for you, Altean whelp. I swear on my crown, you will die!
Michalis: Aaagh! I am finished. Forgive me, my people.
Marth: First General Camus of Grust....Now Prince Michalis of Macedon. Men of such promise...Had the times been different, the two might have led illustrious lives.
Malledus: Yes, Prince Michalis was a brilliant man with great things ahead of him. But in the end, the rashness of youth did him in.
Marth: Only because Gharnef found his weakness and exploited it. Until we stop that fiend, this spiral of misery will never cease.
Malledus: Then shall we go to Thabes? Lord Gotoh said the city lies someplace far to the north of Khadein.
Marth: Yes, in the heart of the desert...
Malledus: Thabes is an old city... None in recent memory have gone there and returned alive. Within its walls remain many powerful apparatus crafted of long-forgotten magic. Lord Gotoh believes Gharnef is harnessing their power, and that is why he wields such influence over the continent.
Marth: And he has Imhullu as well...This will be a struggle.
Marth:Still, Gharnef’s reign must end. The world was so much more beautiful before he painted it red...
