Battle quotes

As the boss of Chapter 18

Yen'fay: I am Yen'fay of Chon'sin. That is all you need know before you die.

Against Chrom in Chapter 18

Chrom: General Yen'fay.
Yen'fay: Aye, that is my name. What would you have of me, Ylissean?
Chrom: I would ask why a famed swordmaster would sell his honor to Walhart.
Yen'fay: ...That is not your concern.
Chrom: ...Are you truly your sister's brother? She is a principled woman. Even knowing Walhart's strength, she has fought on valiantly. Are you so deluded as to genuinely consider her your enemy? Or are you simply afraid of your master?
Yen'fay: Afraid...? Yes, fear plays it's part, that I cannot deny.
Chrom: ...You admit it, then? You are craven!
Yen'fay: I did not say it was fear for my life. That my reasons exist is not cause to explain them all to strangers.
Chrom: If there's honor left in you, say it now. You could still join us...
Yen'fay: The bones have been thrown, lad. All that remains is to see where they fall.
Chrom: So be it.

If defeated by Chrom

Yen'fay: Hrrgh! Nngh...
Chrom: Whatever your reasons for joining them, there must have been another answer...
Yen'fay: Some quandaries in this world... have... no... proper answer...

Against Say'ri in Chapter 18

Say'ri: Brother. I won't ask you why... We are well beyond that point now. I will speak it plain: I cannot forgive you, and neither can I let you live.
Yen'fay: I've asked you for nothing, Sister, least of all your forgiveness.
Say'ri: But you will have my justice, like it or no! You, who stood by in silence while everyone around you suffered! While villages were razed and fields burned, you watched but said nothing... When Father and Mother were murdered—you said nothing! Nothing, before you ran to the arms of the one man responsible for all of it! Your silence was deafening. Maddening. Even now...have you nothing to say?!
Yen'fay: ...
Say'ri: Damn you, Yen'fay! Then I will make your sword answer for you! Draw your blade, and let it sing your final words!

If defeated by Say'ri

Yen'fay: Say'ri... You have grown... so strong...
Say'ri: ...Do... do you mock me? I have seen your best swordplay... that was not it. You went easy on me... but why?
Yen'fay: What I could not tell you in life... I say with my death...
Say'ri: But, Yen'fay...
Yen'fay: You have found... strong comrades... I no longer need fear for you... ...I die... in peace...
Say'ri: Yen'fay, wait! What do you mean? Why?! Don't leave me with more silence - not this time! Yen'fay!

You stand before the mighty Yen'fay and yet you do not withdraw? Either you're skilled enough to be confident or too green to realize you're outmatched. Looking at you, I suspect it's the latter...but I shall have my answer soon enough!

Ah, volcanic hot springs... 'Tis truly one of nature's greatest gifts. Prized both in the present and the past, and likely just as beloved in the future... Perhaps I shall indulge in a bath myself. But first, there is work to be done...
