General QuotesEdit

Recruitment ConversationsEdit

  • Zeke: We meet again, Alm.
  • Alm: General Ezekiel. Have you given any more consideration to what we spoke of before?
  • Zeke: ...... Now that I have turned my lance on Jerome, Rigel will not have me. But neither can I offer that lance to you. I still have no recollection of who I am or from whence I came.
  • Alm: You've lost your memory?
  • Zeke: I have. All I know is that I washed up on the shores of Rigel grievously wounded. I was thrown in prison and accused of being a spy or worse. But Emperor Rudolf saved me. He gave me a name and took me in. He raised me as a father would his own son. And yes. I may have betrayed him... But never would I help you do him harm.
  • Alm: I didn't know. I'm sorry. Forgive me for asking so much of you.
  • Zeke: You are not in the wrong. *gasp* Alm! By the gods!
  • Alm: Wh-what's wrong?
  • Zeke: Where did you get that mark on your left hand?
  • Alm: What, this? I don't know, actually. I've just always had it.
  • Zeke: Is that so? Some time ago. Emperor Rudolf gave me what I thought was odd advice. He said that if I met a men with a mark on his left hand. I was to follow him. "For that man is chosen." he said. "He shall save all of Rigel." "And with it, all of Valentia."
  • Alm: That's... very strange.
  • Zeke: I agree. But now that I have met you. I must heed my emperor's words. I am yours to command, my lord.
