Ephraim: Restoration Lord

At the castle

I am Ephraim of Renais, a prince and skilled spearman. So, point me at my enemy. I'll get to work.
— When summoned, in Heroes.
I might not look it, but I really do hope for peace. I've always got my lance handy, but there's nothing more precious to me than a kingdom at ease.
— At the castle, in Heroes.
I always worry about my sister, Eirika. If I'm not there to protect her, anything could happen.

— At the castle, in Heroes.
You say weapons are shaped like your Breidablik back in your world? I'd like to visit and see that for myself.
— At the castle, in Heroes.
The royalty of other worlds seem to prefer the sword. I like the lance. Lances have the edge over swords. You know, I once had ambitions to be the greatest spearman on Magvel, the continent I call home.
— At the castle, in Heroes.
I'm Ephraim. Now, how about we cut this short and get to sparring? It's a better way to get to know each other.

Level 40 quote

It seems that I've gotten much stronger here. My power has grown almost to overflowing. That isn't enough. Oh, I don't mean my strength. I've always been capable enough there. I mean that strength isn't always enough to protect us. Yes, it helps force a foe to submit. But strength can also blind one to others' feelings. That is exactly how I once lost a good friend. I must become kinder and more compassionate, or else I risk repeating my mistakes. You have those qualities. And so I must remain with you. Then I will learn all I need to. You'll find that I'm a grateful student... and friend.

— When summoned, in Heroes.

Level 40 quote

Thanks to your ability to summon Heroes, you've been thrust into the position of a leader. That power is truly profound. It has the potential to shake the worlds. You should consider the impact you could make. What foe could possibly be beyond your grasp? I know that's a strange thought, but I've pondered this for a long time... You see, I'm drawn to battle. The stronger I get, the more I want to fight. I'm driven to test myself. I know that's just how I am. But I also realize that this is not a healthy impulse for a king. People here call me a Legendary Hero, and sing my praises... They say that I am a good king, one who has vowed to protect his people. I will become king, one day. And though I am not yet that man, I hope to be. And I will protect my people... Not just them. My friend also hoped to save his people, and I will protect them, too... My goal is to be a king beyond kings—one who breaks the bounds of human frailty. I hope I can reach that goal one day.

Level 40 quote

After my father's life was stolen... After our homeland was stolen... After everything I knew fell away... That's when I vowed that I would protect my kingdom in my father's stead.

When my father was alive...that thought would never have crossed my mind. I know that something I once said disappointed him greatly. You see, I said that Eirika should succeed the throne while I lived the life of a mercenary, lance in hand. What would my father say if he could see me now? Would he be satisfied with the man I've become? I'm sure he'd upbraid me. "You have a long way to go," he'd say. He would be right. I want to do what I can to become a good king—to get ever closer to the ideals he upheld. For no other reason than to not disappoint him once more.

Ephraim: Dynastic Duo

At the castle

I'm Prince Ephraim of Renais, and this...this is Prince Lyon of Grado. Nice to meet you.
— When summoned, in Heroes.
A catastrophe beyond all hope of averting... If there were any way to halt such a terrible thing, I'd... Hm...
— Lyon, at the castle, in Heroes.
Grado's land cannot bear enough crops to provide a comfortable life... but it makes us a hardy people.
— Lyon, at the castle, in Heroes.
As you can see, Lyon is as thin as a rail. Quite frail. So...please try to not overwork him. I'll pick up the slack.
— Ephraim, at the castle, in Heroes.
So many Heroes around our age... They'll soon learn that Lyon and I are a force to be reckoned with!
— Ephraim, at the castle, in Heroes.
Lyon's great at teaching. In fact, he taught me about our continent's history—so I know.
— Ephraim, at the castle, in Heroes.
I am Prince Lyon of Grado. This is Prince Ephraim of Renais. It is a pleasure to make your acquaintance.
— Lyon, delivering greetings from a friend, in Heroes.

Duo Conversation

Ephraim: Ah... It's no good. I can make neither head nor tail of this.
Lyon: Don't give up so easily, Ephraim. You've just begun. This is just history, of past kings. ...Would you like me to tell you a little more?
Ephraim: Yes, thank you. I understand things much better when you explain them.
Lyon: It's unusual to see you so devoted to your studies. Did something happen?
Ephraim: Eirika's on me to take up my books. I spend too much time with the lance, she says... And she also says that our father would grieve to see it.
Lyon: Aha! It's no surprise that this is all due to Eirika's influence. I can just picture her face...
Ephraim: Now that you mention it... She never gets annoyed with you, does she?
Lyon: I suppose not. But she cares for you much more deeply.
Ephraim: That's not why! It's your character. You're so kind, Lyon. It draws people to you—including me.
Lyon: Ephraim...
Ephraim: *sigh* Perhaps I wouldn't struggle so much if I were more likable. Or cleverer—like you.
Lyon: I'm honored to hear you say it, Ephraim. But it is I who admires you! If only I were so brave and strong...
Ephraim: If only the two of us could rule together. I would defeat our foes while you hand down wise proclamations.
Lyon: Perhaps... But two cannot rule as one.
Ephraim: Why not? I'll admit I don't know much of statecraft, but our countries are allied, and we are friends... I can't imagine us in opposition. It could work!
Lyon: Ephraim! To rule a nation is not so simple. No, it's far too complicated... But I am pleased to hear you say all this. We'll see what the future holds for us, my friend...
Ephraim:

— Duo conversation

Level 40 quote

Ephraim: You have my—OUR thanks...for showing us the wonders of this world you've brought us to. Sparring with famous Heroes from other worlds has done wonders for my lance technique. If I keep this up...
Lyon: Now, Ephraim...you are a prince, not a mercenary. Eirika wouldn't want you thinking of nothing but battle. That said, it is true that we have learned much in this world. Its realms, its people, its royalty...
Ephraim: Right. The more I learn, the more I realize how little I actually know! But that just means I can keep growing. We hope to both keep learning here, from you. In return, we will be your strength, <player>. You can count on us!
