Main Story Edit

Narration Edit

The continent of Tellius, blessed by the goddess. To the northwest lies the land of Crimea, home of the Greil Mercenaries. Without warning, Crimea’s eastern neighbor, the kingdom of Daein, launches an attack on Crimea’s capital city of Melior. Ike leads a handful of mercenaries to Melior, to confirm Soren’s news of the attack. En route, they happen upon a young woman, unconscious but unharmed. Fearing for her safety, they take her to their stronghold. When she awakens, the woman gives her name as Elincia and lays claim to the title of princess of Crimea.She relates the sad tale of her flight from Crimea and of her parents’ murder at the hands of Ashnard, king of Daein. The Greil Mercenaries answer Princess Elincia’s plea for help and agree to escort her to the kingdom of Gallia. Located to the southwest of Crimea, Gallia is home to the laguz, a race quite unlike Ike and his fellow beorc. Crimea and Gallia have long struggled to overcome their differences. In recent years, the two kingdoms have done much to ease the prejudice between the laguz and beorc factions. Their combined efforts have forged a bond of trust and friendship that may yet overcome years of intolerance. Ike and company escape the Daein army, abandoning their longtime base. From there, they begin the long march toward Gallia. Their task clear and their destination far, they slip into an ocean of trees.

Before battle Edit

If Gatrie and Shinon are alive

Gatrie: Blazes, why does it have to be so blamed humid? If we weren’t being chased, I’d strip off this armor here and now!

Titania: Then I’m almost glad that we ARE being pursued. I suppose you’ll have to grin and bear it, won’t you?

Gatrie: Hm, I suppose I will.

Titania: Right. So enough of your griping. You’re merely wasting energy. Still, this heat is appalling.

Shinon: Dense forests such as these are not made for us delicate humans. The sub-humans love ’em, though.

Ike: These…sub-humans…Are they really so different from us?

Shinon: What, you mean to tell me you’ve never seen a beast-man before?

Ike: No, never.

Shinon: Well, I have. They’re a hairy bunch, I’ll tell you. And ugly as sin, too. Their faces are all fangs and whisker. Their claws are like daggers, razor sharp and deadly. And even though they can speak our language, they’re beasts through and through. Savages, every one.

Ike: Are there more than one type?

Soren: The ones Shinon calls sub-humans can be divided into three groups, each one named for its physical characteristics. First, the beast tribe, next, the bird tribe, and finally, the dragon tribe. They are traditionally called laguz. The laguz tribe residing here in Gallia is the beast tribe, who possess those feline qualities of which Shinon spoke.

Shinon: To the south are the islands where the bird-men live. The dragons are in Goldoa. It’s something every mercenary should know. Looks like you know even less than I gave you credit for, Ike, my boy.

Ike: Hm…Perhaps.

Soren: …A little farther, and we’ll be out of these trees, Ike.

Shinon: Really? That means Gallia proper! Compared to this forest, even a kingdom of half-breeds will seem like heaven.

If Shinon or Gatrie are dead

Mist: Haa..huu…It’s so…wet and sticky…This forest is so hot…

Titania: Are you all right, Mist? Do you want to rest?

Mist: Uh, uh-uhn. I’m all right. But what about you, Titania? Isn’t all that armor hot?

Titania: Daein is hot on our trail, so it would not be wise to take it off. What if we were surprised? I’d be at a serious disadvantage. Still, this heat is appalling…

Ike: Is Gallia beyond this forest? How do the people who live here tolerate this heat?

Soren: Gallia is a country of sub-humans. The climate they prefer is quite different than what we would choose.

Ike: These…sub-humans…Are they really so different from us?

Soren: These sub-humans, or laguz, can be divided into three groups, each one named for its physical characteristics. First, the beast tribe, next, the bird tribe, and finally, the dragon tribe. The bird tribes live on the islands south of Tellius. The dragons live to the south as well, in Goldoa. The laguz residing here in Gallia are part of the beast tribe, who possess feline qualities–like razor-sharp fangs.

Ike: The beast tribe…

Mist: Ike! Everyone’s saying we’re almost out of the sea of trees. Is it true?

Titania: Once we cross that river ahead, we’ll be in Gallia. Just a bit more now. Step lively!

Conversation continues

Daein Soldier: …And that’s when we lost track of them. I assigned a squad to pursue them and returned so I could give you this report.

Petrine: Understood. You may step down. So Princess Elincia is making her way through the forest to Gallia… Ena! It appears your advice was sound. Well done. You have earned my praise.

Ena: Thank you.

Petrine: When the king assigned me a tactician, I wondered what I had done to lose his trust. When I saw it was a young girl,I burned with anger at the king’s judgment. Still, it’s worked out better than I had expected. Keep up the good work.

Ena: Of course.

Petrine: Now then, it’s time for the hunt to begin.

If Oscar is alive

Greil: Hold it right there, everyone. We’re coming to the edge of the forest. Form up. Combat positions.

Titania: I don’t suppose our Daein pursuers were willing to let us just slip away.

Soren: There is no doubt that they will attack again. Without knowing their numbers, it is difficult to advise a course of action.

Greil: Take your best guess, Soren. With the limited information we have, what is the best way to proceed?

Soren: …Some of our group cannot fight. If we are caught, we’ll have a difficult time defending them and attacking the Daeins. I propose we separate into two groups: a small fighting force to engage the enemy and buy the main group some time, and the rest of us–who will escort the princess to Gallia at full speed.

Oscar: You want to divide our combat strength? The main force aside, don’t you think the risk to the smaller group is too high?

Soren: I believe this is the only way to achieve our goal and keep casualties to a minimum.It’s possible there’s an ambush waiting for us at the edge of the forest. If we proceed with no plan, we may be caught between the pursuit and the ambush, which would be the end of us all.

Greil: Looks like we’ve no choice but to give it a go.

If Oscar is dead

Greil: Hold it right there, everyone. We’re coming to the edge of the forest. Form up. Combat positions.

Titania: I don’t suppose our Daein pursuers were willing to let us just slip away.

Soren: There is no doubt that they will attack again. Without knowing their numbers, it is difficult to advise a course of action.

Greil: Take your best guess, Soren. With the limited information we have, what is the best way to proceed?

Soren: …Some of our group cannot fight. If we are caught, we’ll have a difficult time defending them and attacking the Daein. I propose we separate into two groups:a small fighting force to engage the enemy and buy the main group some time, and the rest of us, who will escort the princess to Gallia at full speed. I believe this is the only way to achieve our goal and keep our own casualties to a minimum. I suspect that there may be an ambush awaiting us at the edge of the forest. If we proceed with no plan, we may be caught between the pursuit and the ambush, which would be the end of us all.

Greil: Good thinking, Soren. I guess that’s the best we can do with what little we know.

If Shinon and Gatrie are alive

Greil: All right, let’s split up. The diversionary team will be Gatrie, Shinon, and me. The rest of you guard Princess Elincia and proceed to Gallia straightaway. Got it?

Ike: Are you sure you’re taking enough men?

Shinon: Idiot pup. Smaller numbers mean better mobility. Your time would be better spent worrying about yourself than about us.

Ike: …

Greil: Listen up! This will probably prove to be the biggest fight this company’s faced. Remember–you’ve got only one life. I don’t want any of you dying on me.In times like these, it matters not what our blood ties are. We are family. If you don’t want to cause your family any grief, then live! Ike will be commanding the main force. Titania, you’re his support. All right, let’s move out! See you all in Gallia!

If Gatrie is dead

Greil: All right, let’s split up. The diversionary team will be Shinon and me. The rest of you guard Princess Elincia and proceed to Gallia straightaway. Got it?

Greil: All right, let’s split up. The diversionary team will be Gatrie and me. The rest of you guard Princess Elincia and proceed to Gallia straightaway. Got it?

Ike: Are you sure you’re taking enough men?

Gatrie: Of course! The commander and I together can wipe out one or two hundred of those Daein mice without breaking a sweat!

Greil: In this type of battle, smaller numbers mean greater mobility.

Ike: I got it.

Greil: Listen up! This will probably prove to be the biggest fight this company’s faced. Remember–you’ve got only one life. I don’t want any of you dying on me.In times like these, it matters not what our blood ties are. We are family. If you don’t want to cause your family any grief, then live! Ike will be commanding the main force. Titania, you’re his support. All right, let’s move out! See you all in Gallia!

If Shinon and Gatrie are dead

Greil: All right, let’s split up. I’ll handle the diversionary duties myself. The rest of you guard Princess Elincia and proceed to Gallia straightaway. Got it?

Ike: Father! That’s impossible! No matter how good…

Greil: There’s no need to worry, Ike. I need you to focus on getting yourself, the princess, and everyone else to Gallia safely.

Ike: Father…

Greil: Listen up! This will probably prove to be the biggest fight this company’s faced. Remember–you’ve got only one life. I don’t want any of you dying on me.In times like these, it matters not what our blood ties are. We are family. If you don’t want to cause your family any grief, then live!

Conversation continues

Ike: So they’re waiting for us after all…

Soren: There are…more of them than I’d imagined there would be. I thought they would have been spread out across the forest border…I didn’t expect to see so many in one place.

Ike: Do we rethink our strategy?

Soren: No, we’ve already split up. It’s too late to reconsider now.

Ike: Isn’t there some way we can at least get the princess, Mist, and Rolf to the far shore safely?

Soren: There are two bridges…This thicket extends to the edge of the westernmost bridge. If we can use the trees as cover, we might be able to reach the bridge undetected. From there,we can launch a surprise attack.

Ike: We’ll be creating a diversion, right?

Soren: Correct. While we keep the enemy’s attention, the princess and the others can cross the bridge to safety.

Ike: We’ve no time for discussion. That’s the plan we go with.

Elincia: My lord Ike, I…I will fight with you!

Ike: …No, you won’t.

Elincia: My lord?

Ike: I cannot let you expose yourself to danger of any kind. Everyone here is risking his life to ensure your safety. If you understand that, you’ll cooperate and do as I ask.

Elincia: I see…I will do my part.

Soren: …

Titania: It’s settled then.

Ike: Right! Let’s break through their lines!

Ike: Mist! Rolf! Take care of the princess. Do not let yourselves be seen!

Mist: Right! Be careful, everyone!

Rolf: Leave it to us, Ike! We’ll just pretend it’s a game of hide-and-seek. And I never lose at hide-and-seek!

Ike: Everyone ready? Let’s go!

If Titania is defeated prior

Titania: Ike, I want you to be careful. At times like these, if you’re not used to combat, it’s easy to be impatient…

Ike: Titania…Please take care of the princess and the others.

Titania: I will. Don’t worry.

If Soren is defeated prior

Ike: Soren, I want you to go with the princess and the others.

Soren: …All right. But, Ike, be careful.

Conversation continues

When detected by an enemy

Emil: We’ve spotted the mercenaries! You there! Inform General Petrine at once! Request that she gather the troops!

Daein Soldier: Yes, sir!

At the bridge

Emil: What’s this? They’re not bad! Let’s go, men! Hit those mercenary scum with everything you have!

Reinforcements arrived

Daein Soldier: Reinforcements have arrived!

Emil: Very good! Let’s crush these sellswords once and for all!

Emil is attacked

Emil: Try me! I’ll not let even a single soldier get past!

Emil dies

Emil: Oooh…My life ends here…But…though you flee to Gallia…you will…fall to Daein…

Ike: I don’t know how, but we made it…

Mist: Brother!

Elincia: My lord Ike!

Ike: Mist! Princess, Rolf…Are you all well?

Rolf: Yep! We’re fine.

Elincia: This is all due to your efforts. Thank you…

Ike: Princess Elincia…

Soren: It’s still too early to rest easy. The others haven’t rejoined us yet.

Elincia: Ah!

Soren: …

Ike: …Princess Elincia, I’m afraid we’re going to have to part ways here.

Ike: Listen to me, Mist! We must do it this way so that everyone gets out of here alive!

Mist: Mm…

Ike: Father and I will catch up to you right away! Don’t worry. Have Father or I ever broken a promise to you?

If Oscar and Boyd are alive

Rolf: Oscar…Boyd…Don’t get killed out there, all right?

Conversation continues

If Rhys is alive

Elincia: Pardon, my lord Rhys…

Rhys: Y-yes?

Elincia: Take this with you, please.

Elincia: This is a mend staff, isn’t it? Er, are you sure this is all right?

Elincia: Every one of you is putting yourself in harm’s way on my account. I only hope that staff can mitigate your risks even slightly.

Rhys: Thank you very much! This will help greatly. I will use it to aid the others in your name.

Elincia: …Thank you. Please…be careful.

Rhys: If you’ll excuse me.

Elincia: O benevolent Ashera…Grant them all your blessings…

Conversation continues

Ike: Let’s get moving! Where to, Soren?

Soren: We go east on the road we used before. Let’s find the commander before the enemy reinforcements show up.
