Marcus: ......
Roy: What's the matter, Marcus?
Marcus: They're not good. Not good at all.
Roy: What's not good?
Marcus: The young recruits. Their combat skills leave much to be desired. Granted, not all of them are disappointments, but most are soft! What they need is a more intense training regimen...
Roy: I don't know if I'd call anyone soft... Everyone's working hard.
Marcus: My Lord Roy, you are far too easy on them. I shall go and teach them how we used to do things!
Roy: Just don't work yourself too hard. You're not as...well, youthful as you used to be.
Marcus: Nonsense! I may be getting on in years, but I'm still more than a match for the youth!
Roy: If you think more training is what they need, then go ahead. Just take care not to overwork yourself. Age can be cruel.
Marcus: Of course, my lord. Thank you for your concern.
(Roy leaves)
Marcus: Lord Roy is such a caring and thoughtful young master... The other youths we have can't even compare... It's a disgrace! I'm the only one who can serve our Lord Roy properly.

B Support

Marcus: Lord Roy, I believe training needs to be made more difficult.
Roy: More difficult?
Marcus: Yes, my lord. And those who fail to perform up to par should be discharged.
Roy: ......
Marcus: Such rules may make our numbers small, but we will be an army of elites. That would increase our combat efficiency several times over.
Roy: No, Marcus. I don't think so.
Marcus: What...? Why not?
Roy: Who's to judge whether someone is performing up to par?
Marcus: Why, you, naturally, Lord Roy.
Roy: But some soldiers may excel while I'm not looking.
Marcus: Ah, yes... Well, in that case...
Roy: We also have people supporting us off the battlefield, and yet more who simply haven't yet had a chance to shine. I couldn't discharge such soldiers. Many have joined us thanks to their belief in our fight. I can't simply tell them to leave.
Marcus: ......
Roy: Marcus, try to trust them. We're all working together.
Marcus: ...You are right. I was mistaken, Lord Roy. Your ideas are noble.
Roy: It's strange to hear you praise me. I'm more used to hearing you scold me.
Marcus: Oh? Are you?
Roy: Yes. But thank you, Marcus.
(Roy leaves)
Marcus: Lord Roy... He has grown into a fine young man... I'm certain he can make it on his own. My work is nearly complete...

A Support

Roy: Marcus, is something wrong? You seem unwell.
Marcus: I apologize, my lord. I have been considering retirement... Age has worn me down...
Roy: Retirement?
Marcus: The young soldiers have grown strong. Perhaps now is the time.
Roy: ...Marcus. You can't be serious.
Marcus: I have grown old... A feeble old man like me has no place at your side. It is time I made way for the next generation.
Roy: No...
Marcus: Yes, I will retire soon.
Roy: No! I still need you!
Marcus: Lord Roy...
Roy: I'm sorry about what I said to you before. But you don't need to retire yet.
Marcus: But I'm far too old... I shouldn't be fighting.
Roy: I still have much to learn from you. If you leave...who can I turn to for advice?
Marcus: Lord Roy... I had no idea you trusted me so much...
Roy: Don't retire yet... I need your help.
Marcus: As you will, my lord. I shall serve you until the day I die.

Alen: Where's the next enemy...?
Marcus: Alen.
Alen: Oh, Sir Marcus.
Marcus: You have been performing well lately.
Alen: Thank you, sir.
Marcus: However, you tend to charge headfirst into enemy lines. Your duty is to protect Lord Roy. You must think more.
Alen: Think more...? What's there to think about? Defeating the enemy protects Lord Roy!
Marcus: What if an enemy made it past you and Lord Roy was hurt? You wouldn't be able to make it back to save him.
Alen: That's never happened...
Marcus: But you cannot deny that it is a possibility.
Alen: What must I do?
Marcus: Take your time in battle.
Alen: Take my time...?

B Support

Alen: Sir Marcus.
Marcus: Alen. What's troubling you?
Alen: I need your guidance...
Marcus: My guidance?
Alen: You told me to take my time in battle. Does that mean I've been fighting wrong this whole time?
Marcus: Not at all. But you only know one way of fighting.
Alen: There's more than one way...?
Marcus: Your courage is not a bad trait. Indeed, it is praiseworthy. I'm simply concerned you may leave Lord Roy to fend for himself.
Alen: You're right...
Marcus: A knight must consider each situation and adapt accordingly. Charging ahead is not always the correct way.

A Support

Marcus: Alen, your fighting has improved.
Alen: Thanks to you... I am trying to adapt my fighting style to each situation.
Marcus: Good. Hmm. You might be ready to take over for me.
Alen: What do you mean?
Marcus: I have grown old. I must make way for the new generation. I trust Lord Roy will be safe in your hands.
Alen: M-me...?
Marcus: Are you embarrassed to take the place of an old man?
Alen: Of course not! It would be an honor! I shall protect Lord Roy with my life and Pherae will prosper--
Marcus: Calm yourself. Your passionmis all that worries me.
Alen: Yes, you're right...
Marcus: Just try to control your emotions. Lord Roy is still young. You must grow with him. As a knight, and as a person.

C Support

Marcus: Lance, have you gotten used to serving House Pherae?
Lance: Yes, Sir Marcus. Everyone has been very good to me despite the fact that I'm an outsider...
Marcus: I see. That is good to hear.
Lance: You have been very caring as well, Sir Marcus.
Marcus: Of course. I need you especially.
Lance: Really? Me?
Marcus: You possess experiences the other knights do not.
Lance: Do I...?
Marcus: Yes, you do. Those traits will be of great help to Lord Roy in the future.
Lance: ......

B Support

Lance: Sir Marcus.
Marcus: Yes, Lance?
Lance: You said before that I had experiences the other knights do not.
Marcus: That I did.
Lance: I cannot see what those experiences are. I am but a young knight. I think you see more in me than there actually is.
Marcus: I think not.
Lance: I will use what experience I have, but I don't know that I can help especially. I served a different lord until just recently, after all...
Marcus: And that is it.
Lance: Sorry?
Marcus: That is the experience the others do not have.
Lance: Oh...
Marcus: Lord Roy will take the throne of Pherae. If he is surrounded by only those of Pherae, his views will lack scope. We need someone like you. You know other parts of the world firsthand.
Lance: Will that experience... really be of use?
Marcus: You must make it so. Lord Roy must grow into an individual with global views.

A Support

Marcus: Lance.
Lance: Ah, Sir Marcus.
Marcus: Lord Roy said that you told him stories of other lands.
Lance: If my experience can be of use to Lord Roy, then I will do my best to teach him.
Marcus: Very good. Then it seems that I can retire with no worries.
Lance: Sir Marcus, what are you saying? We still have much to learn from you.
Marcus: Not if we have you. You can take my place once I am gone.
Lance: Me? But I'm not even a native of Pherae...
Marcus: Are you still worrying yourself over that? Lord Roy certainly isn't.
Lance: ...Very well. If you wish it, I shall take your place when the time comes. But that won't happen for many years. You are still well. You are an example to us all.
Marcus: Perhaps. But we all must step down eventually.

Wolt: Sir Marcus!
Marcus: Ah, Wolt. What is the matter?
Wolt: I have something to ask of you.
Marcus: You do? What is it?
Wolt: Please, could you...teach me how to use a sword?
Marcus: ...... May I ask why?
Wolt: I can only use bows. An archer can't even defend himself at close range. I won't be able to protect Lord Roy if something happens...
Marcus: Do not belittle the bow. It has many traits that close range weapons do not.
Wolt: Even so...
Marcus: Besides, what is the point in learning swordplay at your late age? A mediocre skill would be nothing but a hindrance to Lord Roy.
Wolt: Well...
Marcus: Do not worry yourself about it any further. You are a great help to Lord Roy as you are.
Wolt: ...I hope so...

B Support

Wolt: Sir Marcus.
Marcus: Wolt... I can tell by your face that you still want me to teach you swordplay.
Wolt: I just don't understand. Am I really that much help to Lord Roy?
Marcus: Wolt... Tell me what you think of the knights like me who served Lord Eliwood.
Wolt: Uh...well... You're all really strong and I look up to you.
Marcus: Well, thank you for that. But there was one problem with Lord Eliwood's knights.
Wolt: There was?
Marcus: None of us are even close to him in age.
Wolt: Now that you mention it...
Marcus: Lord Eliwood's vassals... They were all old like me or too young for him to relate to. He couldn't speak to us on a comfortable level. In a way, he was isolated.
Wolt: I never even thought about that...
Marcus: I don't want Lord Roy to suffer the same fate. You and Lord Roy are the same age, and what's more, you were raised together. I need you to stay by Lord Roy's side and give him moral support.
Wolt: Moral support?
Marcus: Combat prowess is important, but that is not all you can do. Think on what I've said. You are more important than you realize.

A Support

Marcus: Ah, Wolt. You look better. Do you still want me to teach you how to wield a sword?
Wolt: No. After hearing your words, I lost any sense of hesitation. I will perfect my skills with the bow and ensure Lord Roy can count on me!
Marcus: Very good. Then it appears I can let you take over for me.
Wolt: What? B-but if you leave now...
Marcus: No, no, I won't retire right at this moment. Still, the day isn't far off. Once I am gone, you must take care of Lord Roy.
Wolt: Me...?
Marcus: Are you embarrassed to take over for an old man like me?
Wolt: No, not at all... It's just...do you really think I can do it...?
Marcus: There's your problem. You lack confidence. Lord Roy won't be able to turn to you if you're like that.
Wolt: You're right...
Marcus: You can do it. All you need is confidence!

Lilina: Hello, Marcus.
Marcus: Ah, Lady Lilina.
Lilina: Things grow more perilous all the time... Marcus, do you think Roy will be okay?
Marcus: Of course, milady. Lord Roy takes after his father, the greatest knight in Lycia.
Lilina: Yes... Lord Eliwood is a great knight indeed.
Marcus: His wife was also a kind, gentle woman. Much like yourself, if I may say so.
Lilina: Wow... Do you really think so?
Marcus: Lord Roy is becoming very much like his father. I expect him to seek a wife much like Lord Eliwood's.
Lilina: Like his mother...?
Marcus: Milady, if you would allow me a suggestion. When all is done and we return to Lycia, you and Lord Roy should w--
Lilina: Marcus! Roy and I are friends. Just friends! It's too soon to think of marriage!

B Support

Lilina: Marcus, what kind of couple were Lord Eliwood and his wife?
Marcus: Well, milady, just looking at them would fill one with cheer. The people of Pherae were truly happy for them.
Lilina: That sounds nice...
Marcus: Lord Eliwood loved his wife deeply. One night...before the two were wed, Lord Eliwood disappeared. He returned three days later, and presented his wife a flower. It was a beautiful white flower that grows only in the snowy highlands. And it was the flower she loved the most.
Lilina: Lord Eliwood sounds so...romantic. Sigh... And look at Roy...

A Support

Lilina: Sigh...
Marcus: What troubles you, Lady Lilina?
Lilina: Marcus... What does...what does Roy think of me? I...I'm not so sure anymore.
Marcus: ......
Lilina: Roy... He's... I've always...liked him...
Marcus: Why not ask him yourself, milady?
Lilina: What...? But...
Marcus: I do not know much of these matters, but the maids in the castle say that women can no longer be passive. I'm certain Lord Roy would fall for you if you were to advance.
Lilina: ...... Yes... That's what I'll do. I've known him longer than anyone. I won't let someone else snatch him up!
Marcus: That's the spirit, Lady Lilina!
