Sacred Stone (part 2)/Script (Eirika)
Fomortiis (disembodied): Now, humans... Lament your fate. Weep for the dead. Despair for the living. Wail and tremble in grief. Grovel in awe and fear. I am returned.
(Light flashes, and Fomortiis returns to his body; Eirika and Ephraim enter the room)
Eirika: Is...is that...the...Demon King?
Ephraim: Don't be afraid, Eirika. I'm here. Our friends are here. We have the Sacred Stone, and we have each other. We will not lose. We will defeat him.
Eirika: You're right, Brother!
(Other units enter)
Eirika: L'Arachel! It's time. We have to use the final Sacred Stone. We must use its power against the Demon King, as in the stories of old!
L'Arachel: You must listen to me, Eirika. The stories are true: the stone does hold the power to stop the Demon King. However, the source of its power is human will, the desire for peace within our hearts.
Eirika: In our hearts?
L'Arachel: Yes, that's right. We need not pray for the Sacred Stones to aid us now. No, we need only focus ourselves and concentrate on a better future.
Eirika: I understand, L'Arachel. Listen, everyone. I can never repay you for all you've done so far. Now, please, one last time... Lend me your strength. To defeat the Demon King! To restore peace to our lands! To take the peace we all dream of and make it real!
Each deployed character says their respective lines:
- Ephraim: Is everyone ready? We're going to win.
- Seth: My only wish is to serve and protect the two of you...
- Kyle: We're with you all the way, Prince Ephraim!
- Forde: We've got to do what we can, right?
- Franz: There must be something that I can do!
- Innes: Bah... I am in NO way inferior to this so-called Demon King.
- Tana: There's nothing to fear. I'll protect everyone!
- Vanessa: Please, let everyone come through this unscathed...
- Syrene: I will show you the honor and valor of the Frelian Pegasus Knights.
- Gilliam: We can't let our guard down.
- Moulder: Hm. I wonder if we can reenact the legend.
- Duessel: We must be steel blades with which to pierce the enemy.
- Knoll: That's the heart of the darkness I've studied? It can't be...
- Natasha: ...Prince Lyon.
- Cormag: Defeat the foe. Nothing else matters.
- Amelia: Gotta d-do my best. Here goes!
- Gerik: Never stop fighting. Never...
- Tethys: Don't tense up! You'll fight better if you're relaxed.
- Marisa: My blade will cut deep.
- Joshua: So, what's Lady Luck have in store for me today?
- Saleh: Hm... Can my magic prevail?
- Ewan: I'll show you all what my magic can do.
- Myrrh: I'll do what I can.
- Garcia: This may be my last battle. I'll hold nothing back.
- Ross: Watch with pride, Father! I'll show you who's the strongest!
- Colm: Fighting's all well and good, but where's all the treasure?
- Neimi: I'm starting to wonder if I really should be here...
- Artur: That's the king of all demons... What a ferocious sight he is.
- Lute: Oh, that's the Demon King, isn't it? Yes, I've read all about him.
- L'Arachel: I, L'Arachel, strike in the name of righteousness, order, and Rausten!
- Dozla: Gwah ha ha! Same goes for me!
- Rennac: Come on... You can't be serious!
- Eirika: Let's finish this.
Fomortiis: Gaa...grrr... Abominable Sacred Stone... I will not suffer imprisonment again. How? You possess only one... Do not fool yourselves. You cannot fully imprison me... I will grind that wretched rock and your accursed bones to powder!
(The Sacred Stone shimmers, and draws energy into itself)
L'Arachel: We did it. The Demon King's soul has been bound once more. But, Eirika, it's not over yet. The Demon King's soul rages against its prison. We must return it to its proper place--and quickly. But first, we must defeat the Demon King's soulless body!
Eirika: That thing?
L'Arachel: Uh-huh... The real battle's just beginning. Our ancestors paid dearly for their victory. A mountain of corpses... It's written the Demon King was surrounded by the dead before he finally fell.
Seth: We're all prepared to do what must be done.
Eirika: I have no desire to make any more heartbreaking sacrifices. I promised we would all return safely, and return safely we shall!
Eirika: That's it. It's over, isn't it?
L'Arachel: Yes. Evil has been imprisoned, locked away. The legends of old have been mirrored in our actions today.
Innes: No, we've done far more than the legends ever told. We've destroyed the Demon King's body. He can never come back.
Eirika: That's right. And we have you all to thank for it.
Ephraim: And another thing... In that ancient battle, it took the might of the five heroes to do what we did. We did not have their extraordinary power to draw upon.
Eirika: No, we didn't. We conquered darkness and restored peace to the land, thanks to you. It was because you never gave in, you never stopped fighting. None of you, not once. Thank you...
If Tana, Syrene, Vanessa, Moulder, and Gilliam are alive
Vanessa: This means we've accomplished our mission! I must relay the good news to King Hayden at once.
Tana: Yes. I'm sure Father will be most pleased. Brother! This means peace will be restored, doesn't it? Shall I fly back to Frelia and let him know?
Innes: There's no need to rush. I'm sure he knows. After all, we were together, and that ensured our victory.
Syrene: Of course, Prince Innes...
Moulder: Hmmm... Looks like we're on the outside looking in, eh? Even so, the fighting's over. And that's something to be happy about.
If Joshua, Gerik, Marisa, and Tethys are alive
Gerik: Well that took some doing, but we finally finished the job.
Tethys: We certainly earned our pay... Please tell me we're going to enjoy it.
Marisa: Let's go home, Chief.
Gerik: Let's see now... Shall we head back to Jehanna? I guess we could stop in at the guild and get our next contract, eh?
Tethys: But the queen's gone... I wonder what Jehanna will do now.
Gerik: I'm sure it'll all work out. After all's said and done, it's our home. C'mon. It's time for Gerik's band to ride.
Marisa: Let's go.
Joshua: ...... ...Hm... Heads. Looks like I should be getting back as well. Homecoming time...
If Natasha, Amelia, Duessel, Cormag, and Knoll are alive
Natasha: It's over, isn't it? The demon that drove Grado to madness is dead and gone.
Amelia: I-I can't believe that I was part of this whole thing...
Cormag: The war is over. But so much remains to be done. Our country lost this war. The road ahead will be long and hard.
Duessel: That's true. And yet... It's a road we must travel. That's the burden survivors must shoulder.
Knoll: Yes. And we must fulfill the dreams of Emperor Vigarde and Prince Lyon.
If Dozla and Rennac are alive
L'Arachel: Dozla, Rennac. We've done it.
Dozla: Gwaa ha ha! And a job well done it was, Princess L'Arachel.
Rennac: Whew... It's finally over. So it's about time for me to...
L'Arachel: Hold it! I gave you no orders to leave! I am the princess of Rausten, lest you forget. I have many missions yet to fulfill. Come, Dozla, Rennac. It's time to go!
Dozla: Gwaa ha ha! Wait up! Let's move, Rennac!
If Saleh and Ewan are alive
Myrrh: The darkness... It's gone.
Saleh: Yes. That's the end.
Myrrh: I guess so...
Saleh: Let's return home, Lady Myrrh. Our friends and family will be worrying about us...
(Myrrh and Saleh leave)
Ewan: What? Hey, Teacher! Where are you going? Wait up. I'm coming with you.
If Garcia, Ross, Colm, Neimi, Artur, and Lute are alive
Garcia: You did well, Ross. You're a true warrior, my pride and joy.
Ross: But you're still the best, Father! That's right! My father's the best warrior in all Magvel!
Colm: Bah, I'm glad everyone's so happy, but... They'd better not forget that they won only with our help. Right, Neimi?
Neimi: We all worked...together. Wasn't...that great...Colm? Sniff...
Colm: H-hey... Don't start crying... Please?
Artur: O glorious light, were you witness to our victory? The foul demon has been purged from the earth.
Lute: The ancient Demon King was as powerful as the scrolls described. And yet, in the end, we were able to defeat him! After all, there's no one better than us.
If Franz, Kyle, and Forde are alive
Seth: Your continued safety is all that matters to me, Princess Eirika.
Franz: General! Princess Eirika! We can finally return to Renais, can't we?
Eirika: Yes, we can go home. All of us unharmed...
Forde: Ah, I'm exhausted. I'd like nothing more than to laze about a while... Alas, we're not going to have that opportunity, are we, Prince Ephraim?
Ephraim: No. The reconstruction of Renais is going to keep us busy. Keep your strength up. I'm going to need you in the days ahead.
Kyle: We'll be beside you through it all!
Regardless of anyone's status
Eirika: All right, let's go home. Let's go back to the people who are waiting for us...
Fighting Fomortiis with Eirika
Eirika: Lyon... Lend me strength!
(At Rausten Court)
L'Arachel: It is time for me to be on my way, my friends. As the princess of Rausten, I still have many duties to perform. Oh, Princess Eirika... If it please you, I would be ever so delighted if you joined my tea club. I insist that you come. Oh, say you will, won't you?
If Joshua is alive
(At Jehanna Hall)
Joshua: I've much to do here in Jehanna. I'll start with what can be done and keep going from there. First, I must talk to Mother. She should know that we've won, so that she can rest easily.
If Joshua is dead
(At Jehanna Hall)
Myrrh: Lady Eirika... I must return to Caer Pelyn and meet with the grand elder. I'm sure she is most worried as well. But I was wondering... May I come to visit you from time to time?
Regardless of Joshua's status
(At Renais Castle)
Innes: We of Frelia will do what we can to aid in the restoration of Renais. If you have need of our assistance, you have but to ask. I seldom trust people who act from purely altruistic motives... But I'll grant you that friendships are a worthy exception to my distrust.
(In Renais Castle; Eirika and Ephraim approach the throne)
Eirika: We've finally made it home, haven't we?
Ephraim: Aaah. You must be exhausted after the journey. Shall we rest, Eirika?
Eirika: That would be nice... But first we must seal this away... This stone banished the Demon King. With such power... Do you suppose we could bring back Father and Lyon... That everyone who died in this dreadful war could be--
Eirika: I know, I know. Such things would be-- I cannot wish for such things. No matter how it hurts, or rather because it hurts, we must learn to accept sorrow. We must take it into our hearts and tame our grief...
Ephraim: Eirika... Tell me, Sister... If Lyon were here with us, what do you think he would want?
Eirika: What he would want?
Ephraim: Yes. You see, I think I know. It was the reason for his studies. It's why he wanted to know about the Sacred Stones--or rather the Fire Emblem. Let's take Lyon's dreams and fulfill them in his stead. We can do that, can't we? Without relying on any mystic power?
Eirika: You're right, Brother, we can. Let us fulfill his dreams. As Lyon wanted, as we all want... So we may live in peace and joy.
Lyon: Oh, are you... I'm... My name is Lyon. Uh-huh. That's me... The son of the emperor. You're Prince Ephraim and Princess Eirika from Renais, aren't you? I heard you were coming, and I've been waiting here all day. I've always wanted... I don't have any friends my own age... So, Prince Ephraim... Princess Eirika... What do you say? From now on, let's be friends...
