Per turn: +1
Alen: You... You're Ward, the mercenary.
Ward: Uh, yeah... Who are you?
Alen: I'm Alen, knight of Pherae.
Ward: Oh, you're one of our client's knights. Are you any good?
Alen: Right to the point... I will say that I consider myself fairly skilled.
Ward: All right, good. Let's duel.
Alen: What, right now?
Ward: Of course.
Alen: Very well. But I'm telling you now, I won't go easy on you.
Ward: I'd expect no less. Just don't start crying if I hurt you.
Alen: Let's go!
Ward: W...Whoa... You're better than I thought.
Alen: You too... Good fight!
Ward: I'll beat you next time. Got that?
Alen: Sure thing!
Ward: Hey you!
Alen: Ward! How do you fare?
Ward: I've been looking for you. We didn't finish our match yet.
Alen: Oh? I thought I won.
Ward: No way, I was just getting warmed up. You haven't seen the real me yet.
Alen: No? You haven't seen what I can do, either!
Ward: Bring it on!
Ward: You are strong...
Alen: Let's call it a tie... Lance and I used to spar like this a lot. It's great to have a partner to train and grow with.
Ward: I haven't lost yet! You'll see my true strength next time, you hear?!
Alen: Of course. Any time you're ready!
Alen: ...! You're...getting better, Ward!
Ward: Y...You too! You become stronger every time we meet..
Alen: I'm nothing. It's just you who's weak.
Ward: Heh, whatever! I'll beat you! I'll crush all the enemies with my axe...
Alen: Enemies...? Ward.
Alen: What do you think of this war?
Ward: What do you mean?
Alen: Do you think we can win?
Ward: What? Of course we'll win. I'm on this side, after all. How could we lose? We've also got you. No one stands a chance against the two of us.
Alen: Ha ha... You're right. We can't lose. Enough talk! Charge!
Ward: Yeah! Let's go get 'em!
Per turn: +2
Dieck: Ward. Let me talk to you for a sec.
Ward: Whuh? Sure.
Dieck: Pay more attention to what's going on around you. The way you fight, you're just asking to be killed.
Ward: Aw, c'mon, Big Man, I haven't died yet. I can crush anything with these massive arms...
Dieck: I've heard those same words from plenty of young hotshots before. They're all dead now. You just worry me is all.
Ward: Well, all right... You're the boss, Big Man.
Dieck: Good. I'm glad you can take some criticism.
Ward: Big Man! Did you see me?! I took down three guys with one swing...
Dieck: Do you even remember what I told you?
Ward: Huh? Uhh... Charge?
Dieck: No! I told you to pay more attention to what's going to your surroundings!
Ward: Fighting like that just doesn't sit well with me. I'm getting even stronger, too. I'll crush anyone who dares stand up to me.
Dieck: Ward! ...That kid can't sit still, can he?
Ward: Big Man...
Ward: Sorry. You win. I almost got myself killed earlier, then I remembered what you told me. Maybe I was getting carried away...
Dieck: Yeah, I think so.
Ward: Since then, I've been following your advice...
Dieck: I can see that. You're still alive. If you pay more attention, you won't die like a fool. With your strength, you can impress people no matter how you fight.
Ward: ...Are you okay? You're, like... praising me. It feels...weird.
Dieck: Shut up. Let's go.
Per turn: +2
Ward: All right, who's next! Bring it on!
Lot: Ward, can't you calm down a bit?
Ward: What's that? You scared, Lot?
Lot: Not likely!
Ward: Then what's the problem? I rush in, and you do everything else. That's worked great so far.
Lot: Yeah, but...
Ward: But what?
Lot: Mary asked me to take care of you.
Ward: My sister said that? I'm not a kid anymore...
Lot: I wish that were true.
Ward: Did you say something?
Lot: No, nothing.
Lot: Ward, you seem to be doing well today.
Ward: Of course! I'm always great. You better fight hard, too, buddy. You need money to buy medicine for your mother...
Lot: ...I don't need to anymore.
Ward: Huh? What do you mean?
Lot: My mother, she... She didn't make it.
Ward: What!? Why didn't you tell me?
Lot: Because if I did, you'd tell me to go home to Mieu.
Ward: No kidding! She's all alone now. Don't you care about your baby sister?
Lot: But I got the message during a job. I couldn't leave without finishing.
Ward: You're stupider than I thought.
Lot: ...Maybe so.
Lot: Ward, you're acting strangely as of late. Do you have something to say to me?
Ward: Don't die. Whatever you do, don't die.
Ward: If you were killed, what would happen to Mieu? She's still just a little girl. She'll be forced to live on her own.
Lot: But you're no different. Mary would be devastated if you were killed.
Ward: Oh, sure, like she would cry over me.
Lot: ...You can't honestly think that.
Lot:It's not just me that can't die here. It's both of us. One day, we'll go back home.
Ward: ...It's just a dirty village with no clean water or vegetation.
Lot: Maybe so, but it's our home, and we both have people waiting for us.
Ward: Yeah, you're right. Let's not disappoint them!
Per turn: +2
Ward: So, who's next! ...? Hey! Shanna!
Shanna: Hey, Ward. What's wrong?
Ward: Don't buzz about the front lines so much.
Shanna: Buzz about?!Am I an insect?!
Ward:You might as well be! Archers sure make short work of you!
Shanna: Oh yeah?! Then you're an ape, you stupid, slowpoke axefighter! You can't even dodge!
Ward: Say that again! You pickin' a fight with me?!
Shanna: You started it, you idiot! But fine, you're on! Just try and hit me all the way up here.
Ward: Hey... Shanna! No fair! Get down here!
Shanna: Yeah, right! Catch me if you can!
Ward: Blast it! She really knows how to set me off!
Ward: Too soon to relax, stupid.
Shanna: Ow! Hey! You hit me! What did you do that for?
Ward: There was an enemy archer taking aim from the bushes.
Ward: And here you are, yawning it up. Idiot.
Shanna: Idiot? You have no right to call anyone an idiot, let alone me!
Ward: I dunno, someone who decides to kick back in a battle seems pretty idiotic to me. You're just lucky I happened to pass by. You'd be vulture food by now if not for me.
Shanna: Hmph, I can take care of a single archer no problem. Do you want a favor or something? I don't need you watching my back.
Ward: Oh, is that so! Then pardon me! I'll just sit back and watch you from now on, then. Good luck! Hope ya don't die!
Shanna: That idiot! I didn't even have a chance to thank him...
Ward: Where did she go?
Shanna: 7Oh, Ward. What are you doing here?
Ward: I told you to leave this area to me. That means you don't go flying around on your own! We have to follow Roy's orders...
Shanna: But if we sit around waiting for orders all the time, we could miss an opportunity!
Ward: Don't you get it?! What if you flew out by yourself into a bunch of enemy archers?! Why don't you just think before you act...?
Shanna: What? I thought you were angry about me fighting without you.
Ward: Of course I am! We need to work as a team in a battle...
Shanna: Then what was all that about the archers and stuff?
Ward: Uh!! Th-That was...
Shanna: ...Were you worried about me?
Ward: W-w-what are you talking about?! N-n-no way! Y-you just don't know how to act in battle...
Shanna: Ward, you're stuttering.
Ward: ...Oh, c'mon. You're not supposed to say that.
Shanna: Yeah... You're right.
Per turn: +1
Echidna: Hey, you're from the Western Isles, aren't you?
Ward: ...... How did you know?
Echidna: I can tell by your face.
Ward: Really? That's actually kind of impressive...
Echidna: Are you going back to your hometown after the war? If you are, I could use your help.
Ward: Help with what?
Echidna: I'm planning to build a new village for people who lost their homes in the war. I can't do it myself, though.
Ward: What do you want me to do?
Echidna: Oh, there are plenty of things you could do. Chop firewood, clean the laundry, help with cooking...
Ward: ...I'm no servant. I live the mercenary life. Sorry, but you better ask someone else...
Echidna: You'll help us? Fantastic! I knew you would.
Ward: Wait, that's not what I said! Were you even listening?!
Echidna: ...Sure I was. But I can tell that you want to.
Ward: No, I don't!
Echidna: I can see in your eyes your desire to help.
Ward: No, you can't!
Ward: You again... I'm not helping, all right?
Echidna: Trust me, you don't want to be a mercenary. You never know when you could die. And you're weak, so that'll be sooner rather than later.
Ward: Grr... You'll regret saying that... You don't want to see me when I'm angry.
Ward: What are you looking at me like that for?! I've slain monsters stronger than any human!
Echidna: Wow, now that's something. What kind of beasts?
Ward: ...Near my village... there's this weird cave. When I was a kid, people said it was filled with monsters. So one day I got my friend Lot and we went to defeat them.
Ward: The cave was dark and damp... Something seemed wrong. Lot was scared, but I was fine. I led the way...and finally, there they were. The monsters were crawling all over the cave floor. Long, skinny bodies slithering about, all scaly and spotted...
Ward: ...... Well, I guess they were kind of like snakes. But these were no ordinary snakes. They were monsters, with poison and strange dances and weird moves...
Echidna: Yeah... Snakes.Anyway, where is this cave?
Echidna: I'll go check it out on the way to the village site. I'm curious now.
Ward: B-But I already killed all the monsters, so...
Echidna: You said they were all over the cave floor. Some might have escaped. They were no ordinary snakes, right? I want to see them.
Echidna: Well, we meet again. Doesn't looking at my face make you want to help out?
Ward: No. ...But... When the war is over, I might just stop by my old home. And if I get bored, maybe I'll come and help a little.
Echidna: Do you have family back home?
Ward: Yeah, an older sister who never stops yelling at me.
Echidna: ...Sigh... You're pretty stupid, you know that?
Ward: Stupid? What do you mean by stupid, you--
Echidna: You've got a home to return to. You've got someone waiting for you.
Echidna: Help us out if you have time, but your sister is more important. Do you understand?
Ward: Yeah, yeah, I know... Can't wait for her to scold me again...
