Hector: General of Ostia

At the castle

I'm Hector, from a realm called Ostia. But I'm not its ruler. My brother, Uther, is marquess at the moment.
— When summoned.
Fine castle you have here. It's not really my thing to stay cooped up all day though. Let's get to battling!
— At the castle.
The name of my axe is Armads. It was once wielded by a legendary berserker, you know. Once had a chance to meet the man, believe it or not. He's one dangerous-looking fellow.
— At the castle.
One of my best friends goes by the name of Eliwood. We spar for fun. He even wins half the time!
— At the castle.
I'm really bored. How about we spar for a while? Don't worry. I'll go easy on you, friend!
— At the castle.
Someone once told me that knights should stand their ground, but that's really just not my style.

I'm Hector. You must be <player>. I've come to say hello—sent over by <friend>, in fact!

Level 40 quote

I'm no poet, friend, so bear with me here. I have a hard time putting my thoughts into words. But before I joined you, I thought that as long as I just kept on swinging in battle... I'd always come out on top and bring everyone back from battle, safe and sound. Then I noticed how you, as tactician, see the line between life and death like no one else. Not sure why, but that hit me hard. Anyway, know that I've got your back—long as you've got mine.

— When summoned.
So your world has a festival that celebrates love too, huh? What kind of people would win your world's tournament?
— At the castle.
You're wasting your time if you came to me for gift-giving advice. What I have to share on that matter could hardly be classified as "advice."
— At the castle.
I don't know if it's because of the festival or what, but... Does everyone seem a bit rowdy to you?
— At the castle.
There's a whole row of stalls in town selling all sorts of treats. And they all look mighty sweet to me. But the only treat I need is a good tournament!
— At the castle.
Eliwood and I used to spar all the time. He's not as sturdy as I am, but he still gave me a run for my money!

Gift giving isn't really my thing, but I know a good gift can show someone how grateful you are to them. So I guess that means I should hand some out... I'll get something for my daughter Lilina, and for Eliwood. But I never know what to say when I hand over a gift. It's always just kind of...embarrassing... Say, <player>... Why don't you help me come up with something? I'm really hopeless here. You'll do it? Great! I owe you big time! Heh, guess that means I'll have to get something for you, too.

Hector: Marquess of Ostia

At the castle

I'm Hector, Marquess of Ostia. Armads and I both are in your service. Man, fancy introductions like that just aren't my style...
— When summoned.
Being marquess has me cooped up in a castle all day. I don't have time to move around like this anymore. That's a pretty big plus for this place!
— At the castle.
I often wonder who would win in a spar... My kid, or Eliwood's. Those two don't spar like we used to!
— At the castle.
Hey, try not to look like you're just loitering. The big boss has gotta be looking in control and composed! Huh? Same goes for me? Aw, you know as well as I do, that just isn't my style.
— At the castle.
Armads has been my stalwart partner for quite some time. He loves to fight, so I bet you he's happy here!
— At the castle.
This castle never fails to impress. But my hope is that someday kingdoms won't need sturdy walls for protection. There will just be peace.
— At the castle.
I'm Hector, Marquess of Ostia. I'm here at the request of your friend <friend>. Can you make sure their message gets to the right person?

— On the character status screen.
War is coming. Someday, a terrible war...
— On the character status screen.
I'm counting on you. I want you to guide my children and me.
— On the character status screen.

Level 40 quote

Mind sitting with me for a bit? There's something I want to ask you. Do you...believe in destiny? Not too long ago, I would've laughed at the idea. But now... Well, things sure have changed. Whether or not you believe in destiny isn't what matters. What matters is that you don't regret your decisions. As long as you're strong to the core, you'll be ready no matter what the future throws at you. You won't blink when faced with a life-or-death moment. This goes for me... But it goes for you, too. I can just tell. The look on your face says it all. I know, I know, I'm not usually one for talks such as these. Being marquess is one thing I'm not cut out for. But I guess... It is what it is, right? And that means I've gotta lecture from time to time, so just work with me.

Oho, now this is more like it! The great Lord Hector's true power!
— When gaining 5–6 stats from a level-up.
It's like polishing a diamond. I just get brighter and brighter!
— When learning a new skill or increasing rarity.

I'm ending this!
— When using a special skill.
Caught ya sleeping!

Hector: Brave Warrior

At the castle

I'm Hector, Marquess of Ostia. I was wondering why I was called here, but... Well, if you have some foes that need routing, I have just the lance for the job.
— When summoned.
Uther... I wish I could have been at your side to aid you, Brother...
— At the castle.
This here is the freezing lance Maltet. Just like Armads, it's counted among the legendary weapons of Elibe. That said, wielding it is quite different from wielding an axe...
— At the castle.
Don't get too close. One wrong step and this heavy armor could crush you flat. Hahaha! I'm only joking, friend! Do be careful around me, though...
— At the castle.
Daily training is essential if you want to move around in heavy armor like this. Care to join me? Once you get used to being sore all the time, it's actually quite fun!
— At the castle.
Hey, what's with that strange look you're giving me? Oh, this? It's just a book. What?! Aw, come on. I read! A lord has to have some refinement!
— At the castle.
I'm Hector, Marquess of Ostia. And I've brought you a message from <friend>.
— Delivering greetings from a friend.

On the character status screen

This here is heavy armor from House Ostia. And let me tell you, they don't call it "heavy" for nothing!
— On the character status screen.
Who was that? This bulky armor makes it so hard to move. Normally I'm lighter on my feet, I swear!
— On the character status screen.
Get this. "For generations, Corrupt neither the body nor the mind has been the dominant ideology of Ostia."
— On the character status screen.
My brother Uther was the Marquess of Ostia. He was a great man... Someone you could truly respect.
— On the character status screen.
My dream was to one day grow wiser so I could sit at my brother's side and aid him.
— On the character status screen.
I never asked it of him, but... Even on the verge of death, he watched over me.
— On the character status screen.
You're not dying while I'm around. Not a chance.
— On the character status screen.

Level 40 quote

Hey, let me ask you a question... What qualities do you suppose are most important for a ruler to have? I've been thinking about this since I succeeded the throne. And aside from bravery, I'm at a total loss... The respect of the people, you say? Hm... Without the backing of the people, one isn't qualified to rule... Yes, I think that makes good sense. However, respect is not something you can see with your eyes. Huh? Seeing isn't always believing? There you go again, doling out wisdom faster than I can keep up! Well, if that's the expectation set for me as a ruler, then I'll just have to meet it. For those who have put their faith in me...and for my brother.

Hector: Dressed-Up Duo

At the castle

So this is where they're holding the harvest festival this year? Count me in—for Lilina's sake!
— When summoned, in Heroes.
Treat or trick! No... Trick or treat! Oh, wow! You gave me candy just for saying that? They must be magic words!
— Lilina, at the castle.
Lilina, you have to eat something besides candy. Oh, don't give me those puppy-dog eyes... Well, it's just one day. I guess it can't hurt... Right?
— Hector, at the castle.
Do you want to go to the festival with me? It'll be a lot of fun! Let's go!

Jokers be forewarned—try and play a trick on my darling daughter and you'll live to rue it!

Lilina: Father...?
Hector: Yes? What is it, my dear?
Lilina: Will that kid come back to play again?
Hector: That...kid? Oh, you mean Eliwood's boy? Roy? Of course he will!
Lilina: That's good. I promised to show him how to study.
Hector: Is that so? Well, that's great, Lilina. Just what I'd expect from the daughter of Marquess Ostia! Keep it up, and you'll be head of the Lycian League in no time!
Lilina: The...head? You mean like you, Father...?
Hector: That's right!
Lilina: Then...I want to be a good head! We will be two great heads together!
Hector: Ah... I'm sorry, Lilina. There can only be one leader at a time. So, if anything bad happens to your dear old dad, I'll be counting on you.
Lilina: Something bad...? Like what?
Hector: W-well, I mean...if I were to get hurt, for example...very badly...
Lilina: I don't want you to get hurt! I don't want to be the head!
Hector: L-listen, Lilina... It's all right. I won't leave you—not anytime soon.
Lilina: *snuffle* Promise?
Hector: Of course. It will be a long time before you must take the lead. You will have grown, married...and I will be a grandfather, surely... When that time does finally come, it'll all be up to you. So, keep working hard, Lilina—it'll serve you well in the future.
Lilina: All right, Father. I'll do my best!

— Duo conversation

Level 40 quote

Hector: Enjoying the festival, are you? My daughter and I are too—tremendously!
Lilina: It's SO much fun! Why don't they have a festival every day?
Hector: Ha-ha! If everybody's busy having fun, who'd grow food? Who'd gather it? What would we do when it runs out?
Lilina: Oh... I guess the only reason we can have a festival like this is because everybody worked so hard!
Hector: That's right. Work hard and enjoy the rewards—that's what festivals like this are all about! I hope you can understand that, Lilina—if not now, maybe when you're a little bit older.
Lilina: I'll remember that, Father! I'm studying hard. I'll make you proud!

Level 40 quote

Lycia is not governed by a single ruler. It is an alliance of lords, and what matters most is trust. Least, that's how I remember Uther putting it. They must have felt that the kids needed to know it too... Because they gathered us up and dumped us in a room while they were hashing things out. Erik of Laus tried to sweet-talk us into, well, something or other, but it was just a lot of hot air. As he was finishing up, I recalled the old custom of the warriors' blood oath, sealed by clasping cut hands. The only one with the guts to take my hand was Eliwood of Pherae. And I feared he lacked the stomach for it! He certainly changed my view. We spoke frankly about so much. His family, and my brother Uther... We shared our visions for the future. One day, he'll be marquess, and I'll take my place at Uther's side. If either of them needs me, I will be there. Together, we will bring Lycia into a new age!
