Battle quotes

I am Bryce, general of Daein!
— Bryce, in the Endgame of Path of Radiance.
Bryce: So you’re the enemy general, eh? You’re much younger than I had imagined.
Ike: My age matters not. The palace will be ours this day.
Bryce: We will not relinquish it so easily. But allow me to introduce myself as befits a warrior. I am Bryce of Daein.
Ike: And I am Ike of the Greil Mercenaries. Now... Let us begin!

— Bryce, when fighting Ike in the Endgame of Path of Radiance.
Ena... You, too, have had your fate warped by the king. You should pray that you at least know peace in your final moments.
— Bryce, when fighting Ena in the Endgame of Path of Radiance.
Bryce: Ah, Tauroneo... I see that you have found another path to follow. Perhaps you were inspired by my old friend Gawain.
Tauroneo: Tell me, Bryce. Beyond mountains of corpses, what do you see Ashnard bringing to the future of this place?
Bryce: ...I see nothing, save for a land of absolute darkness and terror.
Tauroneo: Then why fight by his side?
Bryce: Some men can change, Tauroneo. Others cannot... I am of the latter type. There is no other reason.

— Bryce, when fighting Tauroneo in the Endgame of Path of Radiance.

Death quote

...My strength...was not enough... I could homeland... Forgive me... Daein...
— Bryce, in the Endgame of Path of Radiance.
Ike: Your name was Bryce, was it not? You fought...a good fight.
Bryce: As...did you...Ike. I...commend you... Your style of unique... Who was your teacher?
Ike: My father. Greil.
Bryce: I thought...I recognized that style. You truly are Gawain's... I see The strong...
Ike: Farewell, knight.

— Bryce, when defeated by Ike in the Endgame of Path of Radiance.
