Level 40 quote

To tell the truth...some of my memories from before I came to this world...are lost. It's all so indistinct, as though a fog has been cast on them. And other things, I can't remember at all... I feel like I may have done some things that would make the people dear to me so very sad. Oh, <player>... You are far too kind. Please don't look at me so. I want to see you smile. Always. I had friends back home who worried about me just as you do... Dear friends. Ephraim, Eirika... I hope that someday, we can gather together for a good, long chat.

My father is Vigarde, the emperor of Grado. He is a great man who thinks only of his people. I hear he is called the Silent Emperor by some, and is not taken seriously... But he is truly strong—unlike me. Grado has General Duessel too, so our military is strong. That is why I will support Grado with my studies. Speaking of which, my father often journeys beyond Grado in search of those who might be of service. I'd like to introduce you to Father if I get the chance. I think he would appreciate meeting you!

But even here, there has been so much to learn—why, just look at all these unusual fruits and colorful fish. I have discovered so much here, under this boundless blue sky.

Thank you for inviting us to the festival. Eirika and I are looking for a gift to give Ephraim.
— When summoned
Having Eirika at my side, today of all days, makes me nervous... I need to concentrate!

Duo conversation

Eirika: Hm... What should I do?
Lyon: Is something troubling you?
Eirika: I'm not sure what to give Ephraim for the Day of Devotion...
Lyon: He would surely be happy with any gift from you...wouldn't he?
Eirika: That's kind of you, Lyon. I've given him a gift every year on his birthday, and he's not shown even a hint of joy...
Lyon: Oh, really? Well that's rather rude of him...
Eirika: Nothing seems to hold his attention except battle. I gave him a beautiful brooch, and he never wore it. I got him a book he'd find of use. He never read it.
Lyon: Heh... Well, that does sound like Ephraim... But I'm sure he appreciated those gifts in his own way.
Eirika: I suppose he has told me that he's afraid of damaging them or getting them dirty...
Lyon: See? He just feels awkward expressing his gratitude. It isn't that he dislikes your gifts.
Eirika: Is that so? You seem to understand my brother better than I do, Lyon.
Lyon: We've been friends a long time. I know him well. And I know that if I received a gift from you, I would...
Eirika: You would what?
Lyon: I-I just mean that I would surely be happy...with any gift from you.
Eirika: Well, I'm happy to hear it, because I have a Day of Devotion gift for you too!

— Duo conversation

Level 40 quote

Eirika: I'm not sure about the name, but the idea of the Day of Devotion is wonderful, I think. I wish I could share it with everyone back home—Seth and the knights, Tana, and everyone from the castle!
Lyon: Hm... I don't actually have anyone like that at home in Grado.
Eirika: But still you helped me find a gift for Ephraim, and so we got to spend time together. I'm grateful for that. And I'm grateful that, in you, I know Ephraim and I have a true friend.
Lyon: Oh, uh... Yes. I, um... Actually, I am also grateful. For—er, to you! So... I-got-you-this-I-hope-you-like-it. ...
