This page contains all of Linde's paired base conversations.

Linde and Kris

First conversation

Kris: I don't believe we've been introduced. I am Kris, Prince Marth's Royal Guard.
Linde: I am Linde, daughter of Pontifex Miloah.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Pontifex Miloah? ...Is he famous?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Pontifex Miloah? ...I-I bet he's famous, right?

Linde: Wow, you don't know Father?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: No, I don't... Sorry. Please forgive my ignorance-- I come from the country. Though I'm sure he's a great man.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Sadly, no... Sorry. I come from the country, so I'm not aware of many things... Though I'm sure he's a great man.

Linde: He is. There's not a soul in Archanea who doesn't know Father. He was a wonderful pontifex, respected by everyone. I've always wanted to be like him...
Kris: I see. He sounds like someone I'd like to meet. Is he in Archanea right now?
Linde: ...He passed away. Killed by the Dark Pontifex, Gharnef.
Kris: I see... My condolences.
Linde: It's fine. Don't worry. What about your family?
Kris: I don't have one anymore. I used to have my grandfather, but... he's gone, too.
Linde: Oh. I'm sorry...
Kris: No, it's fine. How should I put it...? It's a draw? We're square?
Linde: We're even?
Kris: Yes, that works.
Linde: Tee hee... You're funny. Very well, Kris. It was nice meeting you.
Kris: The pleasure is mine..)

Second conversation

Kris: Hey, Linde. You're just in time.
Linde: For what?
Kris: I found some strawberries on the mountain, so I picked them. They look good, don't they? Have some.
Linde: Pardon? These are strawberries?
Kris: Don't tell me you've never eaten one?
Linde: O-of course I have. But, the strawberries I ate back in the palace with Princess Nyna... They were bright red and beautiful. These are misshapen and the color is off.
Kris: Really? The ones you find in the wild usually look like this, you know.
Linde: They do? I was raised in the palace, so I'm not familiar with nature...
Kris: ...Sorry for being a bumpkin. Oh well. Here, try one.
Linde: Ah, thank you. ...Hm...
Kris: How is it?
Linde: It's good...! It tastes much better than the ones I had in the palace.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I know, right? That's because it's fresh.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I know, right? Living in the countryside has its perks, I'll have you know.

Linde: You're amazing. Say, can I go with you to the mountain next time?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Kris: I don't mind, but... It's dangerous to climb a mountain dressed like you are.
Linde: How so?
Kris: ...Well, your robe looks rather thin. If it got stuck in the tree branches, it might get torn. And if that happened...
Linde: Oh...
Kris: ...
Linde: Hey, why are you looking away like that!? Y-you're... making me feel undignified! Father gave me this sacred robe. I'm not ashamed of it!
Kris: I-I see. I'm sorry.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Why, of course. I'd love to go together.

Third conversation

Linde: Here, Kris. I want to give you this.
Kris: This is, um...?
Linde: It's a good-luck charm. This kind is very popular in the palace town. It's supposed to protect its wearer from tragedy.
Kris: Huh? Are you sure you want to give me something so expensive? ...If you want more strawberries, I can just go get some for you.
Linde: Hey... Do you really think I'm giving you this in exchange for strawberries? I'm giving it to you because you always protect me in the battlefield.
Kris: Right, but... We're in this together, aren't we? I wouldn't have been able to get this far without your help, either.
Linde: ...Kris. Why do you protect me?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Neither of us has a family anymore... That's why. So when I saw you fighting... I not sure how to say it, but I knew I had to protect you.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Neither of us has a family anymore... So when I saw you fighting... I not sure how to say it, but I knew I had to protect you.

Linde: I see. I feel the same way... And that's why I wanted to protect you. It's funny the way things turn out. I had no idea it would happen... And yet, we both came to feel this way after fighting together...
Kris: Linde...
Linde: S-so, that's why I'm giving you this. You face the most danger in battle. So stop being shy and take it!
Kris: I see. In that case, I'll gladly accept it.
Linde: You had better cherish it too!
Kris: Yes, of course I will.

Merric and Linde

First conversation

Linde: Huh? Where's my magic tome...? I was sure I left it here.
Merric: Sorry, Linde. I borrowed it for a bit.
Linde: Aha, that makes sense. But, you do know that magic tome can only be used by women, right?
Merric: That's why I borrowed it. As I thought, I couldn't use it... How strange. I wonder why? Your father... Pontifex Miloah was able to wield Aura, right?
Linde: ...Father once told me. Advanced tomes have restrictions on who can use them, based on who created and inherited them.
Merric: ...I see. So you mean to say the condition to use a magic tome isn't necessarily just gender. I wonder how these user restrictions are set into place...
Linde: There are many things about magic that remain unexplained. It seems the more you learn about magic, the less you understand it.
Merric: Indeed. I've been studying magic for a long as I remember, but all the answers I find lead to more questions. Oh right. If you're interested, there's something I'd like you to read. Well, it's an unfinished thesis, but...
Linde: Wow... You're writing a thesis? You really study hard, Merric. Of course I'd like to read it!
Merric: Great. Don't forget to tell me what you think about it, later.

Second conversation

Linde: Say, why did you decide to become a mage, Merric?
Merric: Huh...? Why do you ask?
Linde: Isn't Altea well-known for its court knights? Even in the palace, mages from Altea were quite rare. Besides, I hear you're an Altean noble. Didn't you consider becoming a knight?
Merric: Well, I've always preferred reading books over exercising my body. Many around me expected me to become a knight, so I heard all sorts of things when I decided to study in Khadein... But, Prince Marth and Princess Elice were different. They supported my dream of becoming a mage. I might have given up if not for them...
Linde: ...So that's why you and Prince Marth are so close.
Merric: Yes, Prince Marth really saved me. If what I've learned so far might be of use to him, then I'll follow him anywhere, anytime.

Third conversation

Linde: Hello, Merric... Oh, what's that?
Merric: Hmm... This is a charm that Princess Elice gave me when I went to study in Khadein. She said it'd bring me good luck.
Linde: Princess Elice... I'm sorry that had to happen. I just hope that she's safe.
Merric: Princess Elice is very kind. In the previous war, she sacrificed her own safety to save Prince Marth. And in this war, she...
Linde: I'm sure she's alright, Merric. Don't look so depressed...
Merric: Sorry, I made you worry. Princess Elice is special to me, so I can't control myself sometimes.
Linde: Special... I see...
Merric: What's wrong, Linde?
Linde: No, it's nothing. Come on, cheer up. You're only going to drag your performance down in this state.
Merric: Thank you, Linde. You're right... Worrying will get me nowhere. All I can do now is to walk forward.
