The Fire Emblem
Frey: Today's lecture is about Archanea's most valued treasure, the "Fire Emblem".
Kris: The "Fire Emblem"... I hear Prince Marth fought the last war with it in hand.
Frey: That's right. In the previous War of Shadows, the abominable shadow dragon, Medeus, invaded Archanea. Archanea was crushed by Medeus's troops, and House Archanea was wiped out, save for Princess Nyna. And it was Princess Nyna who entrusted Prince Marth with the proof of Archanean royalty: the "Fire Emblem".
Nyna: Then let me give you this. This crest is called the Fire Emblem. House Archanea bestows it only upon a true champion, one we believe has the power to save the world.
Frey: Therefore, our connection with Archanea runs very deep. Don't forget that.
New Platoon Member
Katarina: Oh, Kris! I'm going out for a bit.
Kris: Katarina? Why are you in such a rush?
Katarina: I've found someone in another platoon who could join us. I'm off to talk to her. She's called Cecil. I can vouch for her ability. All of her comrades have deserted, and it seems she's in a pickle, now that she's all alone.
Kris: Right, I see.
(If Chris is male)
In that case, it would be great if she could join us.
(If Chris is female)
In that case, I'd be happy if she joined us.
Sir Jagen did say our battles are going to become fiercer from now on. We need manpower--every soldier counts.
Katarina: Yes, I'll do my best. Also, I'm hoping to bring along some powerful weapons as well.
Kris: Weapons? Can you get them?
Katarina: Err, the truth is... I have some secret connections. I can't get them ready right now, but I'll do my best so they'll be available for your next battle, Kris.
Kris: I don't really get it, but... You're not getting involved with anything dangerous, are you? You needn't go so far.
Katarina: It's alright. Please leave it to me. I want to help you, Kris, any little that I can. Well, I'll be off now.
Kris: Kris, reporting. Sir Jagen, did you call for me?
Jagen: Relax, it's nothing serious. You said your name is Kris. Where did you learn how to fight?
Kris: ...I was originally
a noble, but I left the castle due to family circumstances...
an orphan; I was picked up when still a baby.
from the country.
a bishop's son/daughter, but then my parents died...
a peddler's son/daughter, but later my parents divorced...
Since I was young, I've been living in a small village named Sera, together with my grandfather. He was the one who trained me. Grandfather was very strict, and worked me to the bone, every day. Many times, I thought I was going to die...
Jagen: What's your grandfather's name?
Kris: His name was MacLear. I heard he was once a knight of Altea.
Jagen: MacLear? I see. You must mean Sir MacLear...
Kris: Were you acquainted with my grandfather?
Jagen: Yes. Chris, your grandfather was an old friend of mine. He left the front lines due to injury, but his loyalty to House Altea was unmatched. I see. So Sir MacLear trained you hard and well so you could become a knight of Altea.
Kris: "Kris, become Altea's sword. Acquire unbreakable power and loyalty." That's what my grandfather used to say when he was still alive. I grew up with his wish in mind.
Jagen: I see. I understand your strength now. You are amazingly capable. The lads who will themselves to battle these days don't have that much power. Clearly, that's the result of hard training from an early age. Kris, I ask of you too. Never stop tempering your skills. Your power is sure to be of use to Prince Marth.
