Death quotes

Ugh... Guh... [...] ...Y-yes...
— Pelleas, in part 4 chapter 2 of Radiant Dawn.
I should have...died then... I fear...nothing...
— Pelleas
To die in this lonely place... It’s my fate... But... For Micaiah... I must... I...must live...
— Pelleas's normal retreat quote in part 3 endgame of Radiant Dawn.
It would be better if I died here, but...I’ll keep my promise, Micaiah. I will live...
— Pelleas's alternate retreat quote in part 3 endgame of Radiant Dawn. It is unknown how to trigger this quote.

Battle quotes

If you thought to end this battle quickly by fighting me, you have made a grave mistake.
— Pelleas, in part 3 endgame of Radiant Dawn.
You are the hero of Crimea, General Ike. You killed my father... [...] I’ve never killed anyone before... I’ve never even stood on a battlefield before today. [...] I do, but it won’t change anything... I promised Micaiah that I wouldn’t run from my destiny. General Ike, you may be able to take me down easily, but I will not run!
— Pelleas, when fighting Ike in part 3 endgame of Radiant Dawn.
Who are you? That mark on your forehead... Is it a mark of Spirit Protection? [...] But that shape... It looks so much like mine! [...] But wait! There’s so much I want to ask you!
— Pelleas, when fighting Soren in part 3 endgame of Radiant Dawn.
Ilyana... I’m sorry. If I were a better king, this wouldn’t have happened. I’m sorry...
— Pelleas, when fighting Ilyana in part 3 endgame of Radiant Dawn.
Zihark... I only ever wanted to help our people. I’m sorry it came to this.
— Pelleas, when fighting Zihark in part 3 endgame of Radiant Dawn.
Jill, you told me once that you wished for me to become a good king for our people. I tried so hard... But I couldn’t fulfil your wish. I’m so sorry.
— Pelleas, when fighting Jill in part 3 endgame of Radiant Dawn.
I... I am Pelleas, king of Daein. [...] Y-you will regret this!
— Pelleas, when fighting Valtome in part 4 chapter 2 of Radiant Dawn.
Izuka! [...] I know that you've been working for the senate, Izuka. [...] With most of Daein turned to stone, the blood pact can no longer harm anyone. But that doesn't change the fact that you tricked me into risking the life of every citizen of my kingdom. Why would you betray me, Izuka? Were you ever loyal to Daein? [...] What? How could that be... [...] But... Mother said... She said she was certain that I was her child! [...] No... No! Stop it! Stop talking!
— Pelleas, when fighting Izuka in part 4 chapter 5 of Radiant Dawn.
Vi-Vice-Minister Lekain... [...] Um... [...] I do, actually. [...] I said I believe. I believe in myself, and I believe in my companions. Even if I falter and fail... My friends will defeat you. This belief sustains me. I can fight you because I am no longer alone.
— Pelleas, when fighting Lekain in part 4 endgame-1 of Radiant Dawn.
If you're the one who's been pulling the strings behind all this, please tell me... Who... Who am I? [...] So... I'm not Ashnard's true son? [...] I think I'm going to be ill... [...] You are going to pay! You are going to... BLAAARRRGH!
— Pelleas, when fighting Sephiran in part 4 endgame-4 of Radiant Dawn.
