Bantu and Kris

First conversation

Bantu: ...Good, this seasoning is quite fine.
(Kris appears)
Kris: Sir Bantu?
Bantu: Oh, you're, if I'm not mistaken...
Kris: Kris. Are there... vegetables inside this jar?
Bantu: Indeed, my boy/girl. Vegetables pickled with salt, among other things. This way, not only are they preserved for longer, but their taste becomes more exquisite as well.
Kris: Oh... Pickled vegetables, is it? I've eaten some before, as army provisions.
Bantu: How very convenient. Sir/Dame Kris, could you taste them for me, please?
Kris: Sure. If you'll excuse me...
Bantu: How is it, my boy/girl?

If Kris is male
Kris: Hey, it tastes great!
If Kris is female
Kris: Wow, it's delicious!

Bantu: Hohoho, I'm glad to hear it. I've honed this technique for centuries, all to fix Tiki's disdain for vegetables...

If Kris is male
Kris: What, for centuries?!
If Kris is female
Kris: Gosh. For centuries... you say?

Bantu: That's right, Sir/Dame Kris. The next portion will be ready soon, would you like to taste it as well?
Kris: Yes, gladly!

Second conversation

If Kris is male

Bantu: Oh dear...
(Kris appears)
Kris: Is something the matter, Sir Bantu?
Bantu: Oh, hello Sir Kris. Did you, um, see... a stone around this size?
Kris: A stone...? I'm sorry, I don't recall seeing one like that...
Bantu: I see, I see... What a predicament.
Kris: Was the stone important to you?
Bantu: Indeed, my boy. Do you remember tasting the pickled vegetables a moment ago? I need that stone in order to pickle them...
Kris: Oh, I see. That is a predicament indeed...!
Bantu: As you age, you start forgetting a lot of things... A long time ago... Tiki told me she wanted to see what vegetables looked like before being pickled.
Kris: Oh, I think I can understand how she felt.
Bantu: It brought me great joy seeing Tiki hold an interest in the outside world... So I broke the law and took her outside.
Kris: Sir Bantu...
Bantu: However, I lost my dragonstone when we were near Pyrathi. It was terrible...
Kris: What? You lost your dragonstone?!
Bantu: I'm afraid so, my boy... Which reminds me, Prince Marth found it for me, back then. I'm truly grateful for his help. ...Sir Kris. I'm sorry to bother you, but if you happen to find my stone, could you bring it back to me?
Kris: Why, of course. I do want to taste your pickled vegetables again after all, Sir Bantu.

If Kris is female

Bantu: Oh dear...
(Kris appears)
Kris: Is something the matter, Sir Bantu?
Bantu: Oh, hello Dame Kris. Did you, um, see... a stone around this size?
Kris: A stone...? I'm sorry, I don't recall seeing one like that...
Bantu: I see, I see... What a predicament.
Kris: Was the stone important to you?
Bantu: Indeed, my girl. Do you remember tasting the pickled vegetables a moment ago? I need that stone in order to pickle them...
Kris: Oh, I see. That is a predicament indeed...!
Bantu: As you age, you start forgetting a lot of things... A long time ago... Tiki told me she wanted to see what vegetables looked like before being pickled.
Kris: I see, that sounds like something a child would say.
Bantu: It brought me great joy seeing Tiki hold an interest in the outside world... So I broke the law and took her outside.
Kris: I... would have done the same.
Bantu: However, I lost my dragonstone when we were near Pyrathi. It was terrible...
Kris: Eh? You lost your dragonstone?!
Bantu: I'm afraid so, my girl... Which reminds me, Prince Marth found it for me, back then. I'm truly grateful for his help. ...Dame Kris. I'm sorry to bother you, but if you happen to find my stone, could you bring it back to me?
Kris: Why, of course. I do want to taste your pickled vegetables again after all, Sir Bantu.

Third conversation

Kris: Sir Bantu!
Bantu: Oh, hello Sir/Dame Kris. Is something amiss, my boy/girl? Why are you in such a hurry? ...Hm? What you're holding, could it be...?
Kris: I found some nice-looking stones after our previous battle, so I decided to pick them.
Bantu: Oh my...! G-goodness gracious. Let me take a look...
Kris: I tried to choose some that you might like, but...
Bantu: Ooh...oooh... These are...!
Kris: Are they good?
Bantu: Yes, yes, they're of excellent quality! Sir/Dame Kris, I don't know how to thank you...

If Kris is male
Kris: No, don't worry about it. I'm always the one on the receiving end, so I guess this makes us even.
If Kris is female
Kris: No, don't mention it. I'm always the one on the receiving end, so I guess this makes us even.

Bantu: A-are you sure, boy/girl? Aw, that's too bad...
Kris: Well, um. I wonder if I could ask you to teach me how to pickle vegetables?
Bantu: Oh yes, I'd be glad to! Hohoho, it feels like I've gotten another grandchild...

If Kris is male
Kris: Haha, and I'm reminded of grandfather, too...
If Kris is female
Kris: Oh my, tee hee...

Bantu: Then, let's not dilly dally. Go on, pick a vegetable of your choice.
Kris: Got it. And then, another one, right?
Bantu: Correct, my boy/girl. Finally, cover it well... Now, we only have to wait.
Kris: I'm looking forward to it. Oh, but how much time will it take before it's done?
Bantu: About one hundred years or so.
Kris: Er, I'll already be dead by then...

Bantu and Tiki

First conversation

Bantu: Tiki, my child.
Tiki: Oh, Ban-Ban!
Bantu: Are you having a fun time with everyone?
Tiki: Yes! I'm having so, so much fun!
Bantu: Ooh, that's good to hear. It's very important you're having fun.
Tiki: Oh, but...
Bantu: Hmm? Is something the matter, child?
Tiki: A while ago, I, umm... I broke Mar-Mar's precious mirror......
Bantu: Oh dear... That's a bad thing you did.
Tiki: Yes. I did something bad...
Bantu: So, what did you do after that, child?
Tiki: Oh... Mmm. I told him. I said "I'm sorry" to Mar-Mar.
Bantu: ...And then, Prince Marth forgave you.
Tiki: ...Yes.
Bantu: I see, I see. ...Good, good You're a good girl, Tiki.
Tiki: Huh? I'm a good girl?
Bantu: That's right.
Tiki: And if I'm a good girl, I can live together with everyone?
Bantu: Yes... Of course you can, child.
Tiki: Really!? Then, I'll stay a good girl!
Bantu: That's good of you. In that case, I'll be relieved, too...

Second conversation

Tiki: ...So, afterwards... We'll live together... Me and Mar-Mar. And of course, Ban-Ban too!
Bantu: Hoho, sounds like we'll be one busy family. ...By the way, Tiki.
Tiki: What is it, Ban-Ban?
Bantu: Have you had those dreams as of late?
Tiki: Dreams...? No... I haven't had those scary dreams anymore.
Bantu: ...Splendid.
Tiki: Oh, that's right! I saw you in my dream last night, Ban-Ban! You were in your human form and yet you were sooo big! I rode on your back and waved my hand to everyone!
Bantu: I see, I see... Sounds like a fun dream.
Tiki: Yes... It was... fun...
Bantu: Oh, child, I see it's your bedtime already. Time for you to return to your room. But, will you... be alright alone? There's something I have to do.
Tiki: Yes! I can go back myself.
(Tiki leaves)
Bantu: ... I wonder if it's about time...

Third conversation

Bantu: ...Tiki, my child. Listen well.
Tiki: Yes. What is it, Ban-Ban?
Bantu: In this world, there are many dragonkin like ourselves. And among them, there are those who are suffering, alone.
Tiki: ...Just like I used to be?
Bantu: Yes, child. That's why I've been thinking of going to meet them.
Tiki: Huh? Then, me too...
Bantu: ...This will be a most perilous journey. Ever since the Medeus episode, man has started to view us Manaketes as dangerous. And therefore, no matter the reason, we must not wield our dragonstone. So, we have no choice but to stand between man and Manakete.
Tiki: ...
Bantu: Tiki, once this war is over... I'll arrange it so you'll live in the palace town.
Tiki: No! I don't wanna. I want to stay with you, Ban-Ban! Besides, you promised, remember! Once this war is over, you promised we'd go shopping together, and you'd cook for me!
Bantu: ...I'm terribly sorry, child. Your Ban-Ban is a naughty boy.
Tiki: That's not fair! I'm going with you!
Bantu: It isn't like we'll be apart forever. That's right. I'm sure I'll be back when you're a bit taller.
Tiki: Huh... How tall?
Bantu: Hmm? I guess... about my height.
Tiki: Okay... Then, I'll transform and become bigger right now.
Bantu: W-wait, Tiki!
Tiki: ...Sorry, I lied.
Bantu: Heavens above. Don't startle me like that...
Tiki: I'm sorry, Ban-Ban...
Bantu: You were afraid of being alone, weren't you? I'm sorry. This is something only I can do... Will you be able to cope?
Tiki: Uh-huh... It's okay. I have everyone with me. Besides, I'm a good girl!
