  • Effie: *nom* *nom* *non* Mmm...
  • Avatar: Ah, Effie. Hosting a feast, are you? Who else is invited?
  • Effie: Oh, hello, Lord Avatar. No, why do you ask?
  • Avatar: Um... because you have enough food for twelve people laid out here.
  • Effie: Twelve people? Goodness, no. This is simply my lunch—nothing more. I expend a great deal of energy in the course of my training, you see. Afterward, I must refuel. All in the name of protecting Lady Elise, of course!
  • Avatar: I see. Well, Elise is lucky to have someone like you on her side.
  • Effie: Thank you for the kind words! I do hope I'm doing an adequate job for her. After all, I owe her everything...
  • Avatar: Is that so? How do you mean?
  • Effie: Oh yes, I wouldn't be the person I am today without her.
  • Avatar: That sounds like an interesting story. Care to fill me in?
  • Effie: I suppose I could... but it's a long story, and I like to eat while my lunch is hot.
  • Avatar: Of course! Pardon me.
  • Effie: Thank you, Lord Avatar. *nom* *nom* *nom*

  • Avatar: Effie, there you are! I've been looking all over for you. Wait, what are you doing?
  • Effie: Oh, Lord Avatar! I'm just patching up this wall. After it rained the other day, I noticed that a few of the boulders were loose. We can't have that, can we?
  • Avatar: I don't understand. What kind of repairs can you possibly—
  • Effie: Here, I'll show you. HRRRRGH!
  • Avatar: Unbelievable! How can you lift that rock with your bare hands?
  • Effie: Aw, it's nothing. Just years of training in service of Lady Elise.
  • Avatar: That's right... You were going to tell me a story about her the last time we spoke. Are you still willing to share?
  • Effie: Certainly. But would you mind terribly if I continue working while we speak?
  • Avatar: Not at all.
  • Effie: Very well. I'll start at the beginning. I was born into extreme poverty—a child of the streets. And yet Lady Elise herself would often visit my slum in disguise.
  • Avatar: Really? I had no idea.
  • Effie: Oh, yes. Now, let me just grab another rock... HRAAAAAAA! Anyway, as I was saying, Lady Elise visited frequently, and we became fast friends. Hyup. HRRRRRGH! Whew! One day, while we were playing, some guards began harassing us. Lady Elise was forced to reveal her identity to get them to leave us alone.
  • Avatar: I see.
  • Effie: Her glory was so blinding at that moment that I can hardly describe it. YAAAAAHHHH!
  • Avatar: Pardon me, Effie, but your repairs are becoming too distracting!
  • Effie: How do you mean?
  • Avatar: I've never seen such feats of strength. It's all I can do to refrain from applauding! Perhaps you can finish telling me the story another time.
  • Effie: Sure, I suppose so, Lord Avatar. Although... I have a favor to ask of you.
  • Avatar: Certainly. Name it.
  • Effie: All this lifting is making me hungry. I know it's not your place, but... Would you mind terribly bringing me something to eat? A whole lot of something, preferably.
  • Avatar: Of course, Effie. I'll return shortly.
  • Effie: Thank you, Lord Avatar! Bring me as much food as you can carry, please! 

A Support Edit

  • Avatar: Hello, Effie. I've been dying to hear the rest of your story.
  • Effie: Of course, Lord Avatar. Now, where did I leave off?
  • Avatar: Some guards were harassing you, and Lady Elise was forced to reveal her identity.
  • Effie: That's right. It was sad, because we both realized we wouldn't be able to play together anymore. I sat sobbing in the street for hours, until I realized how I could see Elise again!
  • Avatar: Go on...
  • Effie: Well, I realized that I must become a palace soldier.
  • Avatar: Of course. It all makes sense.
  • Effie: If I could make it as a soldier, I'd get to spend time at the palace. And to even be in the presence of Lady Elise once again seem intoxicating. From that day onward, I gave everything in my quest to become a soldier. Fortunately, I turned out to have some aptitude for the profession.
  • Avatar: Yes, I'd vouch for that...
  • Effie: Anyway, it was't long before my dream came true. Lady Elise took me on as a retainer. And that's where things stand today. She brought me hope in my darkest days. I would do anything for her. So, uh, that's my story...
  • Avatar: Effie, thank you so much for sharing this with me. I may have said this before, but Elise is truly lucky to have you as her retainer.
  • Effie: Thank you. That's nice to hear. But...
  • Avatar: But? What's wrong?
  • Effie: Lord Avatar... I feel a bit conflicted. Because lately, you've become so important to me.
  • Avatar: And this upsets you?
  • Effie: Yes--I mean, no! It's just that...well...Lady Elise is always my first priority. But at the same time, you've been so helpful in battle. And you've taken such an interest in my humble life story...
  • Avatar: Effie, there's nothing to worry about. I understand your feelings for Elise. I would never want to get in between you and her. I know that she comes first.
  • Effie: I'm so relieved to hear that! Because we do seem to be such a good team...On the battlefield.
  • Avatar: Yes, of course. On the battlefield.

S Support Edit

  • Avatar: Effie! I've been looking all over for you.
  • Effie: Lord Avatar? What's going on? Why are you carrying that roast turkey?
  • Avatar: Well, Effie, I figured you might be wrapping up a workout and in need of sustenance. So, I had one of the cooks prepare a meal for us to share.
  • Effie: Aww, that's so thoughtful, Avatar! I mean...Lord Avatar.
  • Avatar: Please, just call me Avatar.
  • Effie: If you say so, Avatar. Anyway, can we start eating? I'm famished. Ooh, those dinner rolls look like they're fresh out of the oven. And you even have soft butter! Gimme!
  • Avatar: Effie, wait!
  • Effie: *crunch* *CRUNCH* *ptooie* What am I eating? This one has gravel or something in it. Yuck!
  • Avatar: Oh dear...
  • Effie: Omigosh... is this a ring?
  • Avatar: Was. It WAS a ring.
  • Effie: What?!
  • Avatar: Well, I suppose this is my moment, ring or not. Effie, will you marry me?
  • Effie: But...but... You're a prince! And I'm just a humble retainer.
  • Avatar: I don't care about such things. Why should it matter?
  • Effie: Well, perhaps it doesn't. But do you even know what you'd be getting into? When I'm not working out, I'm eating, resting, or guarding Elise. There isn't much room for anything else. Could you live like that?
  • Avatar: Effie, the last thing I'd want to do is disrupt your lifestyle. I know how important Elise is to you. But just think...if we were to marry, she would become your sister.
  • Effie: Elise...my sister? I think I'm going to faint...
  • Avatar: Yes, well, sister-in-law, I suppose. But still. Your bond would be closer than ever.
  • Effie: Then...I will. I will marry you, Avatar! Let me just put on this ring— Oh.
  • Avatar: Yes. It was rather pretty, I can assure you! But don't worry. It appears as though the gem has split evenly in two. We can have a blacksmith craft two matching rings. One for each of us.
  • Effie: That sounds perfect. I love you, Avatar!
  • Effie: Nothing is stronger than my love for you. Except my biceps...

With Jakob Edit

C Support Edit

  • Jakob: Effie, I beg your pardon, but what are you eating?!
  • Effie: *munch**munch* ...Just some cake.
  • Jakob: I knew it! You do realize I baked that cake especially for Lady/Lord Avatar!
  • Effie: You did?! Then you shouldn't leave it out like this! Someone could eat it by mistake!
  • Jakob: Would you PLEASE put the rest of the cake down?!
  • Effie: I don't think you realize how good this tastes after a long workout! *munch*
  • Jakob: If you can't reign yourself in, I will have to stop you by force!
  • Effie: *munch**munch*
  • Jakob: Very well, then! GAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
  • Effie: *munch**munch*
  • Jakob: Huh?! My attack had no effect on you at all.
  • Effie: You'll have to try harder than that. Even then I doubt you can stop me.
  • Jakob: Curse you, Effie! Now what am I going to serve at teatime?
  • Effie: If I were you, I'd make some more of that cake. It was delicious!

B Support Edit

  • Effie: 137... 138... 139!
  • Jakob: She's lifting enormous water barrels. How ridiculous! No wonder she's starving.
  • Effie: Hey, Jakob... Got any more of that cake on you?
  • Jakob: Of course not! ...And even if I did, I wouldn't be giving you so much as a slice!
  • Effie: Wow... That's really mean.
  • Jakob: You idiot! Now you've destroyed a perfectly good water barrel!
  • Effie: ... Oops.
  • Jakob: If you would stop performing such absurd training exercises-
  • Effie: Oh, no! I can't stop. People are counting on me! I have to be as strong as possible! I would do anything to protect my friends... even give up my own life!
  • Jakob: That's terrible! How could you be so cruel to your friends?
  • Effie: ...Cruel?
  • Jakob: Think of the burden! I certainly wouldn't want you dying on my account. Then, I would have to spend the rest of my life remembering your noble sacrifice. Ugh!
  • Effie: ...Um...OK?

A Support Edit

  • Effie: Hey, Jakob...
  • Jakob: There is no cake, Effie, so don't even bother...
  • Effie: Actually, I'm not looking for cake. I just wanted to speak with you.
  • Jakob: Well, that's a refreshing change.
  • Effie: You said you'd be angry if I died while trying to protect you...
  • Jakob: I would. I don't need that kind of guilt in my life.
  • Effie: But, Jakob, you're one of my friends. If you were in trouble, I couldn't just look away!
  • Jakob: I see. Well, I suppose you would have to come to my aid then...and stay alive.
  • Effie: Stay alive?
  • Jakob: I couldn't care less if you protect me or not. I just can't have you dying on me.
  • Effie: But how am I supposed to promise that?!
  • Jakob: You haven't died yet, am I correct? Clearly, whatever you're doing is working.
  • Effie: All right. I'll do my best to stay alive.
  • Jakob: Well, isn't that a relief?! Since that's settled, please excuse me...

S Support Edit

  • Effie: *munch**munch* This is THE best cake I've ever had!
  • Jakob: Would you expect anything less? I made it! I used three scoops of protein powder, just the way you like.
  • Effie: I feel so special that you would bake a cake for me.
  • Jakob: Hmph! You're easy. If that's all it takes, I'll bring you one every day.
  • Effie: Seriously?! Please. Do that!
  • Jakob:...Fine, but I have one condition. You have to marry me.
  • Effie: Uh, it sounded like you just said...
  • Jakob:...Marry me. If you do, I promise to keep you well supplied with protein-rich foods.
  • Effie: I'm sorry... Do you really think I would marry you just because you can bake?
  • Jakob: Of course not. I have other skills as well. I can iron, mend, polish, launder, and-
  • Effie: Stop! All of that may be true, but those are terrible reasons to get married!
  • Jakob: They are?
  • Effie: Jakob, I am not going to marry you for your domestic prowess...I am going to marry you for your kind heart!
  • Jakob: Wait... Did you just say you're going to marry me?!
  • Effie: Yes! You come across a little rude at first, but you are fiercely loyal to your friends.
  • Jakob: That is the same quality that drew me to you, Effie. I love you.
  • Effie: Good. Now that we've settled that, let's talk cake. You'll bake one EVERY day...?
  • Jakob: See? I knew you couldn't resist!

With Silas Edit

C Support Edit

  • Effie: Silas... can I ask you a question?
  • Silas: Sure, Effie. What is it?
  • Effie: Why are you fighting in this army?
  • Silas: What do you mean?
  • Effie: Well, I mean, I'm here because I'm sworn to protect Lady Elise. I owe here everything—and she's my best friend—so it's a natural arrangement. But you're not anyone's retainer. What's in it for you?
  • Silas: I see. So, you think I'm some kind of mercenary?
  • Effie: No, that's not it. I guess I'd just struggle with motivation if it weren't for Lady Elise. And yet you're so dedicated...and one of our strongest fighters. So, if you're not just in it for yourself, why are you here?
  • Silas: Well, Effie, I'm really no different than you. I'm here to protect Avatar. We have a long, complicated history, but I would do anything to protect him/her. That's all there is to it!
  • Effie: I don't think that's true at all.
  • Silas: What?! How can you say that?
  • Effie: The part about you being no different than me. That's just not true!
  • Silas: Well, I'm not going to stand here and argue with you. But it seems rather obvious to me...
  • Effie: I'm sorry—I'm probably overreacting. I guess I'm just a bit sensitive. Just hold off on comparing the two of us until you get to know me better, OK?
  • Silas: Fair enough, Effie.

B Support Edit

  • Silas: Effie, do you have a moment?
  • Effie: Yes, what is it, Silas?
  • Silas: About the other day... I've been giving it some thought, and I really do think we're similar. But judging by your reaction...something about me bothers you. Why were you so adamant about the two of us being different?
  • Effie: I'm not sure. That's just how I feel.
  • Silas: Well, that's vague. I'm just as dedicated as you. Why can't you see it?
  • Effie: Sure, if you say so.
  • Silas: All right. Pay close attention during our next battle. I'll show you what I mean.
  • Effie: Don't bother.
  • Silas: Yeesh, what's wrong with you?
  • Effie: Sorry, but I don't have time to watch your showboating on the battlefield. I'll be too busy protecting Lady Elise!
  • Silas: So you can't even be bothered to glance in my direction. I get it.
  • Effie: Fine, I'll try to take a look. IF AND ONLY IF LADY ELISE IS COMPLETELY SAFE! You got that?
  • Silas: Yes, yes, that's all I'm asking for.

A Support Edit

  • Effie: Silas. I watched you carefully in that last battle. And now I can demonstrate precisely how we are different.
  • Silas: All right. Let's hear it.
  • Effie: Take a look here, under my armor.
  • Silas: Gods!
  • Effie: Now look at this scar.
  • Silas: Oh, Effie. I had no idea you had suffered such grievous wounds.
  • Effie: To protect someone is to sacrifice your own flesh and blood. My dedication to Elise is total. So these don't even bother me. You don't appear to have suffered the same types of wounds. You're very skilled in battle you have immense talent. But I have to train around the clock just to stay alive out there.
  • Silas: Your point is taken. And I do not wish to make this a competition. But please understand that I too have suffered in battle. Not everything comes quite so easily to me. I think the most important is that we both strive to protect above all else.
  • Effie: Yes...after seeing your defense of Lord Avatar, I believe you.
  • Silas: Thank you, Effie. It is gratifying to hear those words. Perhaps we can make better use of our individual strengths in the next battle? For example, I could take a forward position, ahead of you and Lady Elise. And Avatar, of course. That way, I can protect all of you.
  • Effie: I'm sorry Silas, but that doesn't work for me. I need to be able to see up front.
  • Silas: Yes, I suppose your style is suited to an aggressive position...
  • Effie: More importantly...I won't get any stronger if I just stand behind you. I need to be mixing it up if I want to improve my skills. Surely you understand.
  • Silas: Of course. Let's simply make a pact to cooperate whenever possible. In defense of the ones we care about, of course.
  • Effie: Of course. Thank you, Silas.

S Support Edit

  • Silas: Effie. Thanks for coming.
  • Effie: Hello, Silas. What's going on?
  • Silas: Well...I just wanted to say thank you. You've inspired me to work harder. The way you train...the way you put your body on the line for Elise... I'm rededicating myself to the total protection of Avatar.
  • Effie: Aw, Silas. Don't thank me. All I did was act kind of cranky. Lord Avatar is lucky to have you on his/her side.
  • Silas: Well, I certainly hope so. Ahem. There's one other thing...
  • Effie: Well, go on! I have a tough workout scheduled for this afternoon.
  • Silas: I wanted to tell you that Avatar is no longer the only person I'd die to protect.
  • Effie: Oh? That's a surprise. Who is it?
  • Silas: It's you, Effie. I'd stand alone in front of a great army to ensure your safety.
  • Effie: Uh...that sounds like a problem...
  • Silas: What?! Why?
  • Effie: Like I said before. I can't have anyone standing in front of me during battle!
  • Silas: Oh. Whew. Of course. But, uh, that's not exactly what I meant. All right, I'm just going to put it out there. Ahem. Effie. Will you marry me?
  • Effie: Oh! I see what you meant. Let me think about this for a second... Sure, I'll marry you.
  • Silas: Um...that's great... But you seem awfully casual about all this...
  • Effie: Well, I'm a little surprised, I suppose, but it makes a lot of sense. You're a good person. You're strong and loyal. I've enjoyed getting to know you. As long as it won't interfere with my duties to Lady Elise, I'll happily marry you, Silas!
  • Silas: I understand. I promise to protect you and, by proxy, Lady Elise. May we all have a long and happy future together!
  • Effie: Thank you, Silas! I'd give my life to protect you as well. Assuming I'm not already busy protecting Lady Elise, of course...

With Kaze Edit

C Support Edit

  • Kaze: Ahh, another night watch complete. And now for some well-earned rest. Hold on, what's this? The base of the watchtower has been damaged! Solid granite...shattered! Almost as if it were struck by a boulder...Well, I'd better reinforce the structure before...Wait, who's there? Show yourself!
  • Effie: Uh...hello there.
  • Kaze: Effie? What are you doing out here so late?
  • Effie: Oh, just sneaking in a little extra training. One can never be too fit! Oh, who am I kidding? This is all my fault!
  • Kaze: What are you talking about? THe damaged watchtower?
  • Effie: Yes...but I can repair it! I just got so angry thinking about the last battle... Grr! The mistakes I made! I suppose I must have smacked this tower out of frustration.
  • Kaze: With...with your bare hand? Gods...
  • Effie: I'm so sorry. Here, let me just patch this part...
  • Kaze: No need to apologize. I'm still technically on watch...so it's my duty to help you fix it.
  • Effie: Why, thank you, Kaze! You're too kind.
  • Kaze: Nonsense. I am merely performing my duty.
  • Effie: No, really. This means a lot to me. I'm so tired of breaking everything...
  • Kaze: Hmm, perhaps I can help channel your strength into something more...productive.
  • Effie: Really? That's so thoughtful! I feel like giving you a great big bear hug!
  • Kaze: That's quite all right! Let's just finish this repair and try to salvage some rest. (And my ribs...)

B Support Edit

  • Kaze: Good day, Effie.
  • Effie: Hello, Kaze! Thanks again for your help the other night...fixing that watchtower.
  • Kaze: Of course. Actually, that's why I'm here now. I have an idea for you.
  • Effie: Oh? I'm all ears. I'm so tired of leaving a path of destruction in my wake.
  • Kaze: Yes, well, it's not the most sophisticated plan...but I believe it may help. Have you ever heard of whittling?
  • Effie: Carving small pieces of wood? Yes, of course. But I hardly think...
  • Kaze: Behold! I have obtained the trunk of a mighty redwood! I thought it might provide a worthy outlet for some of your energy.
  • Effie: You want me to whittle it? But what should I make? A giant pointy stick? Does that really seem like something I should possess?
  • Kaze: Er, no, of course not. I thought, perhaps, you could make something meaningful. A statue, perhaps. A project like that would require tremendous strength AND focus...Do you have any ideas?
  • Effie: Actually, yes! I could make a statue of Elise! Or...would that be that weird?
  • Kaze: Weird? Er...no. I think it would simply be a grand taken of your loyalty.
  • Effie: Then it's settled. I'll carve with all my might for Elise's glory. Here I go! Hnnnng!
  • Kaze: (Gods, what have I done?)
  • Effie: Hi-yah!
  • Kaze: Miss Effie!
  • Effie: Whew! That is invigorating!
  • Kaze: Please! Slow down. I believe you my need to use a...lighter touch...in some areas.
  • Effie: You're right. And now I've gone and ruined this beautiful log, just like everything else...
  • Kaze: No! It's not ruined. It's just...perhaps I could assist you with some of the details.
  • Effie: You'd do that for me?
  • Kaze: Yes, well, this whole thing WAS my idea. It's the least I can do. Of course, if you feel I'd be getting in the way...
  • Effie: No, of course not. I'd love for you to help me, Kaze.

A Support Edit

  • Effie: Ugh...
  • Kaze: Effie? What's wrong?
  • Effie: Oh, Kaze. It's the statue of Princess Elise that I've been working on...
  • Kaze: Yes, it was really shaping up the last time I saw it! Have you shown it to Elise yet? What did she say?
  • Effie: Yes, I have. She was polite...but she asked me to stop working on it.
  • Kaze: Oh, I'm terribly sorry. That must be disappointing.
  • Effie: You know...it WAS starting to feel a little creepy. The face was so accurate. It was almost like the eyes were following me no matter where I went. Of course, I didn't tell Elise that you mostly carved that part...
  • Kaze: Er...
  • Effie: Anyway, I feel worse than ever. This was supposed to make her happy. And it was supposed to help me avoid breaking stuff. Well, now I feel like doing a million burpees and then sparring with real weapons. LET'S GO!
  • Kaze: Effie, please! We must conserve our strength for battle. And I think perhaps we can salvage some good from this situation.
  • Effie: Oh? How, exactly?
  • Kaze: Does any of the leftover wood remain, er, unshattered? Perhaps you could craft a less ostentatious gift for Elise. Think... What might she enjoy?
  • Effie: Hmm. Well, she loves jewelry...but she already has so many beautiful pieces. And I'm not sure I could do much with this wood...
  • Kaze: What about some sort of container for her jewelry? Oil-rubbed redwood polished smooth would make a fine jewelry box.
  • Effie: That...actually sounds beautiful. Yes! But will you help me with some of the more intricate work? I've accidentally crushed for sturdier stuff than hardwood with these hands...
  • Kaze: It would be my pleasure, Effie.

S Support Edit

  • Effie: Hello, Kaze! Nice to see you!
  • Kaze: Effie! You seem in good spirits. To what do I owe the pleasure?
  • Effie: Oh, Kaze, I can hardly believe it. Elise adores the jewelry box we made for her. And what's more...she's been showing it off, and now EVERYONE wants one!
  • Kaze: That's tremendous, Effie! I'm so glad everything worked out.
  • Effie: There's just one thing. I wanted to give you something as a thank-you.
  • Kaze: That's too kind, Effie. Really, you needn't---
  • Effie: Oh, but I already have! I made a statue of you!
  • Kaze: You...you have?
  • Effie: Yeah, see? It was easy, I just started with that old statue of Elise...Isn't it remarkable what one can do with a little glue and a pile of wood shavings?
  • Kaze: It is...hauntingly accurate. And I see that the eyes are unchanged...But, as much as I appreciate the sentiment, you must remember that I am a ninja. It would be difficult to remain stealthy while carting a 14-foot statue of myself around.
  • Effie: I suppose that's true...
  • Kaze: But please, Miss Effie, don't mistake my pragmatism for rejection. In fact...I have an alternative proposal. What if we sculpt something together? Something more meaningful than any statue.
  • Effie: You mean like a trebuchet? Because I've been thinking we could really use---
  • Kaze: No! Damn, this is harder than I thought it would be. I...I want to craft a life together. A life with you at my side. As my loving partner.
  • Effie: Your loving partner?
  • Kaze: Yes. I may seem stoic, but my heart surges every time I see you. Will you do me the great honor of standing besiede me in life...as you do in battle?
  • Effie: Oh, Kaze! I'm so happy, but I don't know what to say...
  • Kaze: Gods, I hope I haven't misjudged...
  • Effie: No! Kaze, I love you---it's just that I'm at a loss...
  • Kaze: But don't you see? That's it! You just said you love me...and I love you. Nothing more need be spoken.
  • Effie: Except maybe...I do.

With Mozu Edit

C Support Edit

  • Effie: *sigh* Night watch is so boring... I wish I had something to eat...
  • Mozu: Hello, Miss Effie. What are you doing out here so late?
  • Effie: Mozu? I'm on watch. And what are you doing with all that fruit?
  • Mozu: Oh, I'm just getting ready to hang it out to dry.
  • Effie: Why? Won't it spoil?
  • Mozu: Oh, no, not at all! It's actually a great way to preserve the fruit. After it dries for a few days, I'll take it into town to sell it. People love it!
  • Effie: Wow, that's a really good idea. Did you come up with it yourself?
  • Mozu: I guess so... I mean, it's just something I used to do back in the village. It's a good way to make a little money the side, too. Hee!
  • Effie: Well, I'm impressed. And, to be honest... a little bit hungry. *GROWL* Ok, a lot hungry...
  • Mozu: Was that your stomach?
  • Effie: Yeah. Sorry. My watch is almost over, but I haven't eaten in hours...
  • Mozu: Then why don't you eat one of these?
  • Effie: Your fruit? But I don't want to cut into your profits.
  • Mozu: Oh, it's fine. I've got a ton! Please, help yourself.
  • Effie: Well, if you insist! *nom* *nom* *nom*
  • Mozu: Uh, just save me a couple...

With Xander Edit

C Support Edit

  • Xander: Effie. Do you have a moment?
  • Effie: Lord Xander... Is anything the matter?
  • Xander: No, at the moment all is calm. I just decided I should spend more time conversing with my fellow soldiers. So, if there's anything on your mind I'd like to hear it. Do you have any suggestions, comments, or complaints?
  • Effie: Complaints?
  • Xander: How is your relationship with Lady Elise? All is well, I hope?
  • Effie: Oh, it's perfect. I am prepared, as always, to protect her to my utmost ability. I push myself to the max in every workout and battle for her. I consume plate after plate of food for her. And when the food's all gone, I scavenge for more. For her, I must be strong!
  • Xander: Excellent. We should all be so lucky to fall under your protection. But tell me, is there anything that makes you unhappy? Please, speak freely.
  • Effie: If anything, I am somewhat dissatisfied with my own performance.
  • Xander: How so? It seems you do above and beyond in all you do.
  • Effie: It's just... I hold myself to an impossibly high standard. In some ways I've plateaued, but I want to take my training further. I've tried everything, but it's been difficult to make any progress...
  • Xander: I see. Well, I'm certain you have yet to reach your maximum potential. Have you consulted with Arthur? He seems to take his personal fitness quite seriously. You should have a word with him. Perhaps he'll have some workout tips for you.
  • Effie: Sound advice, milord. I will do just that.

B Support Edit

  • Xander: Ah, Effie. Did you ever meet with Arthur about your training?
  • Effie: Yes, milord. He observed one of my workouts, and then we... uh... sparred.
  • Xander: Fantastic.
  • Effie: Er, yes. Although, to be honest the sparring wasn't particularly useful.
  • Xander: Oh?
  • Effie: Well, it's just... Arthur didn't offer much in the way of competition. Although, in fairness, it wasn't really his fault.
  • Xander: Please, elaborate
  • Effie: Certainly, milord. Just as Arthur was getting into his battle stance, a bee flew up his nose! Flailing about in confusion, he stumbled across a tree root and lost his balance. We were, unfortunately, positioned near the top of a particularly steep ravine...
  • Xander: Ah, no need to continue, I can guess what happened next.
  • Effie: So... you don't want to hear about the part where he got struck by lightning?
  • Xander: *sigh* Poor Arthur. He seems almost cursed somehow...
  • Effie: True... Anyway, Lord Xander, I am still in search of new training methods. Our enemies grow strongre by the day and I fear I am falling behind,
  • Xander: I understand, Effie. I will give this matter some more thought.

A Support Edit

  • Xander: Effie, I've been giving a great deal of thought to your training regimen. I believe I have arrived at what is hopefully an acceptable solution. Why don't you spar with me?
  • Effie: Are you serious? I'd be honored to spar with you, milord!
  • Xander: Then draw your weapon and prepare yourself. I shall not hold back.
  • Effie: Wait, right this actual second? (weapon clang)
  • Effie: Gah...I wasn't ready!
  • Xander: That's no excuse! Come! Attack! (weapon clang)
  • Effie: Urgh...
  • Xander: What's wrong with you, Effie? I've seen you in battle—you're better than this! Where's that legendary work ethic? Show me what you've got. NOW!
  • Effie: Lord Xander! I...I can't!
  • Effie: Ughhhh... *huff* *huff*
  • Xander: I must admit, I'm disappointed in you, Effie. Why didn't you give it your all?
  • Effie: I don't know, milord. I...I just couldn't motivate myself! I don't have a problem sparring with the others... Perhaps it's because you're my superior. Making myself attack you is like making myself attack Lady Elise.
  • Xander: But sparring is all about imagining you are truly in a fight for your life. Ah, I know. Why not pretend that I have lost my mind?
  • Effie: Lost your mind, milord? How could that...? No...that simply could never happen!
  • Xander: That's enough, Effie. You must now force yourself to imagine the impossible. Imagine I have lost all sense of self and am determined to kill Elise. Are you just going to stand there and watch?
  • Effie: I think I'm going to be sick just thinking about it...
  • Xander: Now, now. You really do take things quite seriously, don't you? Perhaps I have put you in a tough situation. For that, I apologize. Let's call it a day, shall we? It's time for supper, anyway. A hearty meal would do you good. In fact, I order you to eat to your heart's content.
  • Effie: Eat as much as I want? Really? Is that going to be OK? Because I'm not sure there would be enough for everyone else...
  • Xander: Haha! Of course, I had forgotten about your voracious appetite. Well, think of it as a new type of sparring... between you and the cooks. I have a suspicion that this battle will leave you feeling rejuvenated. So! Take up your fork and spoon, and on my command...DESTROY.
  • Effie: Sir, yes, sir!

S Support Edit

  • Xander: Ah, Effie. Thank you for joining me. I know we're a bit off the beaten path.
  • Effie: That's all right, milord... It's nice here. And I wanted to thank you for the other day. I think that gigantic meal got me back on track. I'm feeling better!
  • Xander: Ah, yes. The great battle between the food pantry and Effie was a draw. Not for lack of effort on either side, I might add. I was...impressed.
  • Effie: Well, thank you again. I'd like to think that all that food is making me stronger as we speak.
  • Xander: Speaking of your training...I have devised a rigorous workout for you.
  • Effie: Oh? Tell me more!
  • Xander: Feast your eyes...on THIS!
  • Effie: Milord? All I see is a massive pile of boulders. And I already use those for training.
  • Xander: Effie, I was thinking of building a home here. A magnificent new villa. And I realized that your training might dovetail nicely with my plans.
  • Effie: But I don't know anything about construction...
  • Xander: Never mind that. I have all the details of this new castle worked out. All I need is the brute force to carry, break, and stack the boulders to make walls. What do you think? Would that not be a challenging training regimen?
  • Effie: It does sound challenging...
  • Xander: There's one more thing. When the castle is complete, we shall both live there.
  • Effie: Live...together?
  • Xander: Yes, as man and wife.
  • Effie: HAHAHAHA! I'm sorry, what?
  • Xander: I don't understand what's so funny. I'm asking for your hand in marriage! Will you marry me, Effie?
  • Effie: Gods, you're serious! I...I don't know what to say! Lord Xander... In my most fevered dreams, I never imagined myself as your bride! I mean...you're a prince! I'm just a retainer. How could such an arrangement work?
  • Xander: I understand your reluctance. So...is that a no?
  • Effie: Lord Xander, I consider you the greatest leader and man in the kingdom of Nohr. I want to accept your proposal, but...
  • Xander: Why do you look so uneasy?
  • Effie: I'm worried that it may affect my relationship with Lady Elise.
  • Xander: Effie. Darling. I am fully aware of how much you value your relationship with Elise. That is why I have already set aside a room for her in the castle plans.
  • Effie: You have! Oh, that's so considerate of you! She'll love that! If that is the case, Lord Xander, then my answer is yes. Yes, I will marry you!
  • Xander: Then it's decided.
  • Effie: Oh, I can't wait to get to work! Can I go ahead and start?
  • Xander: Very well, how about starting with this large boulder?
  • Effie: Large? Pfft. I'm so pumped up right now, this thing looks like a pebble. HRRRGH!
  • Xander: Gods! Go easy on those boulders, Effie!

With Leo Edit

C Support Edit

  • Leo: Hmm... This IS an interesting puzzle.
  • Effie: Is something wrong, Lord Leo?
  • Leo: Not at all! I'm just mapping out our next battle strategy. The enemy is heavily fortified right here. I'm deciding how best to attack. Any ideas?
  • Effie: Sure... You could send me in. I will rush toward the enemy's front line.
  • Leo: What?! How is that a strategy?
  • Effie: I will keep them occupied while the rest of our forces attack from the rear.
  • Leo: That's a lot of responsibility for a single soldier. You'd never make it out alive!
  • Effie: Well, that's all I got.
  • Leo: Thanks, Effie. I think it would be good if you stuck to fighting from now on. How about you leave the strategy part up to me?
  • Effie: Anything you command...

B Support Edit

  • Leo: Effie, you are a marvel on the battlefield. No one is more daring than you. I've watched you annihilate enemies and perform impossible rescues. In the last battle, you took out 10 soldiers with a single thrust of your lance. Then, without a pause, you scaled a tree and rescued a kitten. Where does all that energy come from?
  • Effie: Thanks, milord, but I'm just doing my job.
  • Leo: Still, I'm concerned. You're neglecting one of our most valuable assets.
  • Effie: What's that?!
  • Leo: You, of course. I'm appalled by the risks you take with your won life!
  • Effie:Sir, my life if worthless if I can't protect the lives of my companions.
  • Leo: Do you really believe others' lives are more valuable than your own?
  • Effie: I would die to protect my friends!
  • Leo: I see. You put others first— always. That is an admirable quality. Effie. I won't let you down. If you're risking your life, I won't have it be for nothing. I promise I will never send you into battle without a sound plan.
  • Effie: Thank you, Lord Leo. That is all a soldier could ask for.

With Elise Edit

C Support Edit

  • Elise: Effie! Let's go for a walk!
  • Effie: *munch munch*
  • Elise: Effiiiie! Are you eating again?
  • Effie: I'm sorry. I can't help it. I just never feel full...
  • Elise: It's because you train too much! You've gotta take it easy sometimes.
  • Effie: But I can't get stronger if I don't train.
  • Elise: I wouldn't worry about that. I think you're plenty strong already.
  • Effie: One mustn't neglect one's responsibilities, Lady Elise. I need to be strong enough to protect you from anything.
  • Elise: Aww, that's sweet! but I still think you might be overdoing it. Besides, doesn't eating all that food make it harder for you to move in an emergency?
  • Effie: Oh, yes. In fact, I'm having trouble moving right now.
  • Elise: What?! Does that mean we can't go for a walk now?
  • Effie: Don't worry. You can just roll me on my side instead.
  • Elise: *sigh* No, it's OK. We'll walk together some other day...

 B Support Edit

  • Effie: HUH! HAH! HOO-WAH! HYAH!
  • Elise: Effie! Will you put me down now? Pleeease? I don't wanna be your dumbbell anymore!
  • Effie: Aww, but you're the perfect weight...OK. I'll set you down. Watch your feet milady.
  • Elise: No need to be so formal, Effie! It's just the two of us.
  • Effie: Yes, milad---er, OK, Elise.
  • Elise: Heehee. Say, do you remember how we met?
  • Effie: Of course I do. You snuck out of the castle and came to play in the underground city.
  • Elise: Yep! I was sick of being in that stuffy old castle. I wanted to make a new friend! A real one.
  • Effie: I'd never have guessed that muddy little girl was our princess.
  • Elise: If we hadn't gone back up to the capital, you probably never woulda found out, huh? It's weird to think about what might have happened...
  • Effie: Yes. It would have changed the entire course of my life. But we did go up, and those guards found us. I tried so hard to protect you, but they were too much for me. I was only a child...I might have been locked away forever if you hadn't told them who you were.
  • Elise: Heehee. Yeah, we sure showed them! They got sooooooo scared!
  • Effie: That was the day I swore I'd protect you for the rest of my life. No matter what.
  • Elise: Yup! I remember it like it was yesterday. Thank you for always being there for me, Effie.

With Laslow Edit

C Support Edit

  • Effie: 1,203! 1,204! *huff*
  • Laslow: Oh, Effie. Sorry to bother you, but are you terribly deep into your workout?
  • Effie: 1,205! 1,206! *huff* *huff*
  • Laslow: Er... Effie? Perhaps I'm not speaking quite loudly enough...
  • Effie: Laslow? What is it?
  • Laslow: Ah, hello there! I was just wondering if you needed help with anything. If so, I'm at your service!
  • Effie: Help? No... I'm pretty sure that I actually have to do the workout myself... If I want to gain any strength from it. Now, if you'll excuse me...
  • Laslow: Oh, please. Surely I can assist you in some way. Ah, perhaps I can count repetitions!
  • Effie: As you wish. I'm doing 2,000 push-ups, and I believe I'm on number 1,207.
  • Laslow: Two THOUSAND? Gods, that sounds tremendously boring. On second thought... perhaps I could simply offer you a lesson in sparring. What say you? Up for a tussle?
  • Effie: Now you're talking! I'm always looking for new sparring partners. Shall we use weapons or practice hand-to-hand combat?
  • Laslow: I will leave it to the lady to decide, naturally.
  • Effie: OK, let's work on grappling techniques. Let me demonstrate a move I've been working on... HRAH!
  • Laslow: You... you just annihilated that training dummy! Were you planning on using this technique on me?
  • Effie: I never hold anything back in training. How else am I supposed to progress? Plus, I didn't finish my push-ups... so I have a bit of extra energy to burn off, I suppose.
  • Laslow: Riiiiight. You know, I just remembered something Lord Xander asked of me. I'm afraid we'll have to reschedule.
  • (Laslow leaves)
  • Effie: Gah! Another potential sparring partner, scared away... Oh well. 1,207! 1,208! 1,209! *huff* *huff*

With Odin Edit

C Support Edit

  • Effie: 852...853...854... Hrrrrgh!
  • Odin: Effie. We need to talk.
  • Effie: 855...856...857...
  • Odin: Are... are you listening to me? I said we need to talk!
  • Effie: 858...859...860! Whew!
  • Odin: Effie!
  • Effie: WHAT? WHY ARE WE YELLING?
  • Odin: I heard you've been spreading rumors about me. Telling people I'm "weird". How dare you!
  • Effie: 861....862...863...
  • Odin: Hey! I'm talking to you. Stop squatting that tree trunk, will you?
  • Effie: Huh? Sorry, I'm kind of in the middle of something. Can we talk later?
  • Odin: No! this important. Why did you tell people that I was weird? Or do you deny it? Answer me!
  • Effie: Oh... Yeah, I said that. So what? It wasn't meant as an insult. Just an observation. I mean... you are weird. Or do YOU deny it? Anyway, can I get back to my squats now? I'm really behind on my training.
  • Odin: I'm not weird... I'm hypernormal! So normal that normal people can't even understand me! Which... I guess... means that they probably think I'm weird. DAMN IT. Well, glad we could clear that up. Oh, I was also gonna tell you about a new training technique I've been working on. It's practically doubled my strength! But, it seems like you're busy, so...
  • Effie: Doubled your strength? Well, now you've got my attention...
  • Odin: Sorry, gotta run!

B Support Edit

  • Effie: Odin, do you a moment? I've been desperate to speak with you. The last time we met, you metioned a certain training technique...
  • Odin: Training technique? Doesn't sound like anything I'd be interested in.
  • Effie: Stop joking around! You told me you were using a special technique... Something that doubled your strength! How could you forget something like that?
  • Odin: Oh, right. Of course! Heh. The art of exponential strengthening. Or, as I like to call it... F.L.A.M.E.!
  • Effie: F.L.A.M.E.?
  • Odin: Yes! It stands for Furious Lifting: Art of Muscle Enhancement.
  • Effie: Yes, that's what I want to learn.
  • Odin: Well, I suppose I could help you out... but what are you going to do for me?
  • Effie: Name your terms. Training is my highest priority. All else is secondary.
  • Odin: Oh ho! Can I think about it and get back to you?
  • Effie: Certainly, as long as you teach me the technique first.
  • Odin: Deal. Now, still your heart and concentrate. I will begin the incantations...
  • Effie: Wait, I thought this was a training technique!
  • Odin: It's more of a... blessing. Look, do you want to learn in or not?
  • Effie: Yes, yes, get on with it!
  • Odin: Very well. Hear me, oh spirit of F.L.A.M.E.! Give strength to this soul. May her muscles enhugeify twofold, and may her lifting be ever immaculent! F...L...A...M...EEEEEEEEEE! Whew. The spell is complete.
  • Effie: Those aren't even words. I'm not so sure about—
  • Odin: Oh, you poor soul. The power of F.L.A.M.E. relies not on mere "words." Anyway, if you don't like it, I can go ahead and remove the blessing. You may experience temporary shrinkage in the muscle region, of course...
  • Effie: No, no! I believe you! Just don't deactivate F.L.A.M.E!
  • Odin: Excellent. Now remember, the power of F.L.A.M.E. requires uncontional belief.
  • Effie: The things I do for lady Elise...

A Support Edit

  • Effie: Odin, look at this.
  • Odin: Effie? What's up? You look so serious. Is this about F.L.A.M.E.? Because I have something to confess...
  • Effie: Look at this rock I'm holding. It looks like granite, right? HYAH!
  • Odin: You...you crushed that rock with your bare hands!
  • Effie: I know! Ever since you cast the F.L.A.M.E spell on me. I've been able to do this. The spirit of F.L.A.M.E. is flowing through my body. I can feel it!
  • Odin: Err...hang on a minute. How did you actually do that?
  • Effie: It's F.L.A.M.E.! Listen, normally I can only do about a thousand pull-ups. But with F.L.A.M.E., I can do two thousand.
  • Odin: Two THOUSAND?!
  • Effie: Why are you so surprised?
  • Odin: I...uh...I'm not surprised. F.L.A.M.E. is very powerful, after all...I should know that better than anyone. Yes, yes, of course. Uh...
  • Effie: So, I just have one question. Why haven't you shared the power of F.L.A.M.E. with anyone else? Can you imagine? If everyone fighting on our side had access to this power?
  • Odin: I, uh, don't think that would be a good idea, Effie.
  • Effie: Why not?
  • Odin: It's just that...well...I crafted F.L.A.M.E. especially for you. It would anger the spirit if we shared its power with everyone. Thus, your power would weaken! And we can't have that, can we? Yeah, that's the ticket.
  • Effie: I see. Well, as much as I'd like to share, I can't endanger Lady Elise like that. I'll keep F.L.A.M.E. for myself. Thank you, Odin.
  • Odin: Yes, of course. Anything for you, Effie.

With Niles Edit

C Support Edit

  • Niles: Effie, what's with the cold stare?! It's giving me the chills... I find it oddly thrilling.
  • Effie: SIT DOWN, YOU CREEP!
  • Niles: O-ho! Where is this fit of passion coming from?
  • Effie: I hear you've been teaching filthy words to Lady Elise!
  • Niles: ...Not true. Why would I waste time doing that?
  • Effie: Don't you even think about lying to me! I can tell. I've heard Lady Elise say some things I will not repeat—things I have heard from you!
  • Niles: Really?! How fascinating. Do you have any examples?
  • Effie: Yesterday, she invited me to her "secret lair" and offered me some "saucy snacks." When I told her I must decline, she said, "Why are you always such a tease?" It's obvious where this is coming from...YOU!
  • Niles: It's sort of adorable when you think about it...Wouldn't you say?
  • Effie: It's absolutely appalling! You will not repeat dirty language in front of Lady Elise again!
  • Niles: Oh, really?!
  • Effie: ...OH, REALLY. You do that again, and this happens.
  • Niles: I'm sorry. Did you just crush an apple with your bare hand? It sort of looked like--
  • Effie: Keep your filthy tongue away from Lady Elise, or next time, it will be your head!

B Support Edit

  • Effie: Niles, I can't believe you! After all that, you still can't keep your word! Why don't you tilt your head a little to the left? It'll make for a cleaner blow.
  • Niles: Wha? Effie...w-wait! There seems to be some confusion...
  • Effie: There's no confusion! You've been saying filthy things in front of Lady Elise again. I'm about to make applesauce!
  • Niles: Effie, STOP! Let's talk this over. Is it really so bad if Lady Elise sounds a bit like me?
  • Effie: Lady Elise is a member of the royal family. She's a princess of Nohr! She can't go around talking like a hoodlum! As her retainer and friend, I won't allow it!
  • Niles: Oh, I see. Now she's your friend...?
  • Effie: Don't even try to change the subject!
  • Niles: No, this is fascinating. Do you give her tasty, little presents on her birthday?
  • Effie: Of course! I always give Lady Elise a gift.
  • Niles: I see. ...And how do you know what to buy?
  • Effie: I ask her for hints.
  • Niles: Oh, so now it's a guessing game! ...And if she says, "Just get me anything"...?
  • Effie: Then I take it as my personal mission to do some research. I take stock of all her possessions, noting favorite colors and such... I write down ideas every time we shop. What things did she linger over?
  • Niles: Oh...lingering? I like this.
  • Effie: We're getting really off track. What exactly are you up to?
  • Niles: Nothing... Nothing at all! I'm just leaving now. I'll be on my best behavior. Promise!

A Support Edit

  • Effie: Niles! I can't believe the things you've been saying in front of Lady Elise! Did you forget everything we talked about?
  • Niles: Now, wait a minute, Effie! There's no need to jump down my throat! I was just helping Lady Elise with her little problem...
  • Effie: What problem?
  • Niles: Lady Elise needed help picking out a gift for Lord Leo's birthday. She asked for my help. I AM his retainer after all.
  • Effie: Oh. So you weren't teaching her naughty words then?
  • Niles: No. I was merely giving her advice. She picked up some of my phrases on her own. I've never paid attention to Lord Leo's interests, so Lady Elise and I talked often. That is, until you gave me a few ideas. They were most helpful. I'm in your debt.
  • Effie: Wow. I should apologize. I had no idea you had such redeeming qualities. Niles, tilt your head this way.
  • Niles: What? I thought we agreed! There's no need to give me the apple treatment!
  • Effie: I'm going to give you a little peck.
  • Niles: WHAT?! Wouldn't a handshake be more appropriate?
  • Effie: Yes, it would. But the last time I shook a man's hand, I crushed it by accident.
  • Niles: How about we leave it at "Thanks." No crushed apples. No broken bones...
  • Effie: Alright. Thank you, Niles. You're a more honorable man than I realized...

S Support Edit

  • Effie: Niles, what's wrong? Is it Lady Elise again?
  • Niles: No. This isn't about her. This is about you and me. Effie, you have filled me with a burning desire--
  • Effie: I'm sorry...wha?! I've got a burning desire to turn your head into applesauce!
  • Niles: Effie, wait! I'm not trying to offend you. Can't you see what I'm holding?
  • Effie: Niles, is that a...wedding ring? I thought you were teasing!
  • Niles: No. I've been fantasizing about this day for a while now... Trying to imagine what you've got under all that armor...
  • Effie: A tunic! A very heavy tunic.
  • Niles: You KNOW that's not what I meant! I'm talking about under your clothes.
  • Effie: Niles, seriously?! You have the dirtiest mind! Can't you keep it clean long enough to propose?
  • Niles: Wow. You're the one thinking naughty thoughts! I was talking about your heart.
  • Effie: Oh...
  • Niles: You've got that tricksy, little heart buried beneath a lot of armor. Even now, I have no idea how you feel about me!
  • Effie: ...Well, I can't believe I'm saying this, but Niles, give me that ring! I love you. ...But you better be on your best behaviour! One misstep, and your brain is mush!
  • Niles: Well, well, don't you have a way with words? I'll do my best not to be crushed!

With Arthur Edit

C Support Edit

  • Arthur: Greetings, Effie! Can you spare a moment to discuss something of dire importance?
  • Effie: Arthur? What's going on? Is Lady Elise OK?
  • Arthur: Haha! Er, yes, of course. Sorry, I didn't mean to alarm you. But what I say next may shock and disturb you to your very core!
  • Effie: Well, what are you waiting for?!
  • Arthur: Effie, I believe we need to have a chat.
  • Effie: We're having a chat right now! Now will you hurry up and get to the point?
  • Arthur: Certainly Effie. I believe that I am falling behind in my Elise-guarding duties. I see your dedication to her in every aspect of your life, and I am envious. Please, I must know your secret!
  • Effie: There's no secret. but what you said about my dedication is accurate. I'm more than just her retainer. I'm her best friend. Everything I do is for her. But that doesn't mean you should feel bad. You're her hero, you know?
  • Arthur: It warms my ears to hear such praise, but I fear it is not enough. Our battles grow fiercer by the day! I must know the secrets of your strength!
  • Effie: Oh! Well, my strength comes from my training. You're welcome to join me for a workout or sparring session anytime.
  • Arthur: Fantastic! I look forward to battling to the death—
  • Effie: WHAT?
  • Arthur: —of my energy. To the death of my energy. Is that not a common expression? Oh ho! My mistake.

B Support Edit

  • Effie: Arthur, I've been thinking about our talk the other day. And I realized the reason you feel you're not doing enough for Lady Elise... is because you're always doing so much for everyone else. You're far more generous than I.
  • Arthur: Generous? Oh ho ho! Yes, yes, I suppose I'm reasonably generous. But not any more than you!
  • Effie: Are you kidding? You're always putting other people before yourself. Anytime you see someone in trouble—anyone in trouble—you rush in. Me? I'd snatch a cup of water from a guy who was on fire if Lady Elise were thirsty.
  • Arthur: Oh ho! Remind me not to catch on fire in proximity to Elise during the warm months! But seriously, I do see your point. Perhaps I do spend too much time helping old ladies cross the path. And I should probably stop making silly faces at crying babies until they laugh...
  • Effie: Arthur... no. You shouldn't ever change. That wasn't what I meant. The world needs a hero like you. A hero who stands up for justice, no matter what. A hero who always takes the little guy's side, even at his own expense.
  • Arthur: Well... thank you, Effie! This conversation has been tremendously illuminating. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to resolve this minor identity crisis like a hero. With an extra dessert and some snuggling with my fuzzy blanket. Cheerio!

A Support Edit

  • Effie: Arthur...we need to talk.
  • Arthur: Oh? How may I be of service, fair maiden?
  • Effie: Well, to be blunt... What's wrong with you?
  • Arthur: How do you mean?
  • Effie: Well, in our last battle, you seemed a bit listless. You looked tired.
  • Arthur: Is that so? Well, I have been experimenting a bit with my training...
  • Effie: Experimenting? What have you been up to?
  • Arthur: Ah! It's more a question of what HAVEN'T I been up to. You see, I've decided to try focusing more on our Lady Elise. Like you! So, to that end, I haven't helped any little old ladies cross the street. And I haven't rescued any cats from any trees or rooftops in a very long time. Instead, I have spent hours thinking about Lady Elise...just like you! I have pledged total allegiance to her, just like you! And I have begun bench-pressing tree trunks. Er, kinda just like you. How DO you manage to make it look so easy?
  • Effie: Oh, Arthur. You didn't need to change anything you were doing. Forget bench-pressing tree trunks. That's MY thing. Go back to rescuing cats and cheering up crying babies. That's the selfless Arthur we all know and love. Because whatever you're doing now...it sure isn't working.
  • Arthur: Terrific! I mean, oh.
  • Effie: Oh, please don't be upset, Arthur. It's just that we each have our way of doing things. It's not like one is better than the other. We're both good at what we do. Honestly, I think the best thing you can do for Elise is to just be yourself.
  • Arthur: Stupendous!
  • Effie: Yes, that's the Arthur I know!
  • Arthur: And love?
  • Effie: Er, yes.
  • Arthur: Haha! OK, then.
  • Effie: (That was weird...)

S Support Edit

  • Effie: Hello, Arthur. What is it you so urgently needed to see me about?
  • Arthur: Greetings, Effie! I apologize for imparting a false sense of urgency to this meeting. Because, unfortunately, my goldsmith has failed me...
  • Effie: Does it have anything to do with this box?
  • Arthur: Where did you get that?
  • Effie: It just showed up at my place with both of our names on it. There's some kind of ring inside, see?
  • Arthur: You opened it? Oh, no...
  • Effie: I'm sorry, I thought I should see what was inside—since my name was on the box.
  • Arthur: Oh, that's quite all right. Er...yes. In fact this will be quite splendid. Indeed! Oh ho! Fantastic! Er... Come on, Arthur, pull yourself together...
  • Effie: Arthur! Are you OK? What is all that muttering? Have you become possessed? Oh dear. Quickly—blink twice if you're possessed!
  • Arthur: *blink* *blink* *blink* *blink* *blink*
  • Effie: I...I don't know what to make of that.
  • Arthur: AHEM. Apologies, milady. I believe I have gathered myself adequately. So. The reason I called you out here today was to see if you would accept this ring.
  • Effie: Oh. Well, obviously, I already did.
  • Arthur: Well, yes, I suppose that's technically accurate. The best kind of accurate! But, er, I was hoping that you would accept it as a symbol of our marriage.
  • Effie: Our marriage?! What did you do, Arthur? Did you get us legally married without consulting me?
  • Arthur: Haha! No, of course not.
  • Effie: Oh, thank goodness. Because I don't think I can marry you, Arthur. Not because I don't find you handsome...or enjoy spending time with you. It's just... I'm basically already married to Lady Elise. She's everything to me. I don't know if there's room in my life for you!
  • Arthur: Oh, Effie. Marrying me would in no way impact your duties to Elise. In fact, I believe it would make us even more valuable to her. As you said once before, we each have our own way of doing things. But our skills appear to be complementary! It's only natural to team up.
  • Effie: Well, I suppose it does make a lot of sense... We've been working so well together on the battlefield. And you're already such an important part of my life. You're dependable and heroic...and I know that you'll always be there for me. So...I do! I will marry you, Arthur!
  • Arthur: Fantastic! No, wait, fantastic doesn't begin to cover it... Super...uh...splendid...uh...magnificent... Just, uh, give me a moment here, sweetheart...
  • Effie: You're trying too hard, Arthur. C'mon, let's just go tell Elise the good news.
  • Arthur: Haha! Of course. After you, my love.

With Nyx Edit

C Support Edit

  • Nyx: Ugh! That's a problem.
  • Effie: Hey, Nyx. What's wrong?
  • Nyx: The cap is stuck on this bottle! I need it for my curses.
  • Effie: Ha! Is that all?! Hand it over. Let me try! ...Urrrrrrrrgh! There— it's open!
  • Nyx: Effie! You ripped off the top half of the bottle!
  • Effie: You're going to want to get a new one. That broken glass could be dangerous.
  • Nyx: No kidding.
  • Effie: That's all right. I'll fix it. I'll just press the top and bottom together with all my might.
  • Nyx: I'm pretty sure that won't work on glass.
  • Effie: With enough pressure, it might! ...I feel really good about this.
  • Nyx: I feel you're delusional.
  • Effie: Hold on... Urrrrrrrrgh! ...I wasn't strong enough. I'm sorry. I really let you down.
  • Nyx: That's OK, Effie. You've done enough already... really.

With Benny Edit

C Support Edit

  • Effie: Grrrr! Huuaaaagh!
  • Benny: Uh...what are you doing?
  • Effie: Isn't it obvious? I'm lifting rocks.
  • Benny: Right. I guess I was just wondering why.
  • Effie: Um, it's called strength training. I'd think that you of all people would understand!
  • Benny: Well, you sure are dedicated. But...you're already pretty strong. This seems like a lot of work, and I can't imagine you getting any stronger...
  • Effie: Are you kidding me? I have SO much further to go! Hurrrrrrrrgh!
  • Benny: Er, look. You're struggling. Let me just help you a little bit...
  • Effie: No! I...well...OK. Whew.
  • Benny: Looks like you maxed out. It's good to push yourself, but we need you healthy. So just make sure you don't overdo it, OK?
  • Effie: How can you say that? Overdoing it is the secret to my success! Are you telling me that you never push yourself BEYOND your limits?
  • Benny: Well, technically, no.
  • Effie: Well, thanks anyway, I guess. I'll see you on the battlefield.
  • Benny: Sure.

B Support Edit

  • Benny: Hmm...
  • Effie: Benny? What's the matter?
  • Benny: Effie...I've been thinking. You should sit out the next battle.
  • Effie: What? Are you mad? I live for battle! I thought you knew me better than this.
  • Benny: That's just it. I think the battles are consuming you. It's almost like you have no fear of death.
  • Effie: And?
  • Benny: "And?" That's all you have to say? You're making my point for me. You need to think about how your death would affect everyone else.
  • Effie: I'm sorry, but my life will always come second to those I protect.
  • Benny: You mean Elise.
  • Effie: Yes, Elise, but everyone else too! even you, Benny. I can only be at peace when I know my fiends are safe. If someone were hurt, and I hadn't done everything in my power to stop it...I couldn't live with myself.
  • Benny: I understand. It's just...
  • Effie: What? I've seen you take way more than your fair share of risk on the battlefield too! What would happen if you died? Don't you think about that?
  • Benny: I try not to.
  • Effie: We're not that different, Benny. We put others before ourselves. But we're also both very good at what we do. We're not going down without a fight!
  • Benny: You're right. I apologize.
  • Effie: It's OK. You were just trying to protect me. I get it!
  • Benny: I...I suppose. Please, forget I said anything.

A Support Edit

  • Benny: Effie...do you have a moment?
  • Effie: Of course, Benny. What's on your mind?
  • Benny: I have something for you. A mere trinket, but perhaps it may aid you in battle.
  • Effie: Oh...it's like a little charm! Did...did you make this, Benny?
  • Benny: Yes...
  • Effie: Well, it's lovely. And you say it may aid me in battle. How...exactly?
  • Benny: Well...let me put it this way. It would reassure me if you would wear it. The charm itself possese no power. It's more of a reminder to stay safe.
  • Effie: I see. Benny, don't you remember our last conversation?
  • Benny: Yes, of course. We're both sworn to protect others.
  • Effie: Right. And that means...
  • Benny: That we are almost always in harm's way. Yes, of course, Effie. I understand. It's just that...I feel we've become close, and I couldn't bear to watch you die.
  • Effie: I feel the same way, Benny. But...perhaps there's something we can do about it.
  • Benny: What do you suggest?
  • Effie: Exercise, of course! We can become sparring partners! We're probably the two strongest warriors around...Working together, we'd be practically unstoppable!
  • Benny: Heh. I should have known. All right, Effie, we can train together. But you should be aware...I'm not known for pulling punches.
  • Effie: Pfft. You'll be lucky to pull your own weight when I'm through with you. EN GARDE!
  • Benny: Oof! Heh. That was a good one, Effie. Now, take off the kid gloves and let us dance! HYAAAAAH!
  • Effie: Teehee! This is fun!

S Support Edit

  • Benny: Ah, Effie. There you are.
  • Effie: Hey, Benny! Ready to run some laps?
  • Benny: Er, no. Will you marry me?
  • Effie: Sorry, what was that? It almost sounded like you asked me to marry you...
  • Benny: Er...yes. That's exactly what I just did. I just noticed that you're holding an axe, and rather tightly, I might add.
  • Effie: BENNY!
  • Benny: So, er, is that a yes?
  • Effie: You can't just blurt a marriage proposal out like that!
  • Benny: Why not?
  • Effie: Grr!
  • Benny: You, uh, just cracked the handle of that axe. Might want to send it for repair---
  • Effie: Benny. Are you being serious right now? Because if this is a joke...
  • Benny: Oh, I'm quite serious! I even have a ring.
  • Effie: That's...actually beautiful. Here, let me just try it on...Oh, it might be a size or two too small. Maybe if I twist it just a little bit...RRRRGH!
  • Benny: Effie! Stop! Fingers aren't supposed to bend like that!
  • Effie: *sigh* Fine. That would have worked if you hadn't stopped me. Anyway...yes.
  • Benny: Yes...you'll marry me? Oh, that's a relief.
  • Effie: There's just one condition. And it's kind of weird, so get ready.
  • Benny: I'm listening.
  • Effie: I want you to hug me as hard as you can. And in return. I will hug you back.
  • Benny: That's it? Whew, I thought it was going to be something horri---
  • Effie: IF YOU SURVIVE, we can get married. We got a deal?
  • Benny: Yes, I can take it. Just give me one moment to gird my loins...
  • Effie: YAAAAAH!
  • Benny: HRRRRGH!
  • Effie: Oh, Benny! You're alive! I'm so happy!
  • Benny: Am...am I alive? *huff* *huff* Yes, yes, I suppose the pain is a good sign...
  • Effie: I've always wanted someone to hug with all my might...I'm so happy!
  • Benny: Me...too. *cough* *cough* Really, me too. I love you, Effie.

With Keaton Edit

C Support Edit

  • Effie: *huff* *huff* *huff*
  • Keaton: Effie! What are you doing?
  • Effie: Oh, hello, Keaton. Just a little light exercise.
  • Keaton: But that's a whole tree trunk you're lifting! How are you doing that?
  • Effie: It's simple. I just train hard and make sure to eat right. You know... plenty of red meat and raw eggs.
  • Keaton: That's weird. I eat TONS of red meat and as many eggs as I can find... But I could never lift anything like that.
  • Effie: Oh, you're just being modest. Here, catch!
  • Keaton: Gah! Hrrrrgh! Effie, help!
  • Effie: Looking good, Keaton. Feel the burn!
  • Keaton: You... you don't understand... hnnngh. This... is... litterally... killing me... Please! Take it from me!
  • Effie: Oh, all right. Is that better?
  • Keaton: Phew! I thought I was done for.
  • Effie: Please don't take this the wrong way, Keaton, but you need to build some muscle. Not to worry, though. I can design a custom workout plan for you!
  • Keaton: Gee, Effie. That'd be... great.

With Azama Edit

C Support Edit

  • Effie: Ow. Heehee!
  • Azama: Effie, you just sustained a significant wound. Clearly, you're in pain. So, why are you laughing?
  • Effie: I'm just happy that we won the battle...and I was able to protect you.
  • Azama: Fascinating. So you value the lives of others more than your own. Truly, you're operating on an advanced karmic level.
  • Effie: I don't know. The way I see it, I'm just really good at fighting. I don't want to get hurt or die... But it would be even worse if a friend fell in battle and I survived.
  • Azama: Oh. How disappointing. I thought you had no regard for your physical body. That would be interesting! But I guess you're just a boring old soldier. As such, I'm bored. See you later! (Azama leaves)
  • Effie: Um...
  • Azama: (returns) Oh, fine. I'll say it. Thank you for protecting me. I suppose I do appreciate the opportunity to keep this body alive a while longer.
  • Effie: Great! I'm happy you're still alive.

B Support Edit

  • Azama: Ah, just as I suspected. I got word that one of our soldiers was badly injured while protecting someone. And who else could it be... The amazing selfless Effie—who has no regard for her own life!
  • Effie: Oh, Azama. Stop teasing and heal me, will you?
  • Azama: I can't believe you can maintain such a calm demeanor with an injury like that. You're even JOKING, for crying out loud! Do you even care whether you live or die?
  • Effie: Well, of course! I couldn't protect other people very well if I were dead, could I?
  • Azama: Do you realize that I have peered into the abyss of creation? And I can tell you that there are no guarantees in the afterlife. You could be reincarnated as a newt! So, I would caution you to take good care of your body in this plane of existence. I suppose you'd even sacrifice yourself for an enemy, wouldn't you?
  • Effie: No! No, no, no, no, no. Well...maybe. Only if the situation demanded it somehow.
  • Azama: You know, under certain circumstance you could be punished for saying that.
  • Effie: What?! My life's only goal is protecting Lady Elise. All I meant by that was that if I had to protect an enemy to save HER, somehow... I'd do it in a heartbeat.
  • Azama: Well. It's still treason.
  • Effie: Oh, please. As if Lady/Lord Avatar deals strictly in black and white... I'm sure (s)he would understand the intent behind my statement.
  • Azama: You're right. I was just testing the depths of your philosophy. It's unlike any I've encountered before.

A Support Edit

  • Azama: Effie! Are you in here? They said you sustained a lot of damage...
  • Effie: Yes. I'm here, Azama.
  • Azama: You are the most foolish person I have ever known! To think...we spoke in jest about defending an enemy...and then you actually did it! What were you thinking?
  • Effie: The so-called enemy in question was a child, Azama. He was abandoned by his comrades, and his foot was trapped under a log. Arrows were raining down from above. I couldn't just leave him...
  • Azama: But when you risk your life like that, you risk the lives of everyone in our camp!
  • Effie: Don't worry. I haven't met anyone or anything strong enough to kill me. Besides, you'll always be here to rush in and heal me, right?
  • Azama: Well, I... I wasn't RUSHING. I was briskly walking.
  • Effie: Heh. If you say so, Azama. In any case, thank you.
  • Azama: Hmpf.
  • Effie: Anyway, I seem to have lost a little blood, and it's make me...sleepy... ... Zzzzzz...
  • Azama: Yes, rest awhile. It'll help your wounds fully heal. *sigh* That look on her face while she's sleeping. It's so...naive. But...endearingly naive. Hmm...

S Support Edit

  • Azama: Effie, do you have a few minutes to have a philosophical chat?
  • Effie: I suppose so...but you realize I don't have any injuries at the moment, right?
  • Azama: What does that have to do with anything?
  • Effie: Well, you know...it just seems that the only time we talk is when I'm hurt in battle.
  • Azama: Ah. Of course. Well, this does concern your habit of getting injured in battle, I suppose...
  • Effie: How so?
  • Azama: I want to...protect you.
  • Effie: What do you mean? You protect me all the time...by tending to my wounds.
  • Azama: I want to protect you BEFORE you get injured. Because I want to live a long and happy life...with you by my side.
  • Effie: Are you saying what I think you're saying?
  • Azama: Yes. At first, I was annoyed with your selflessness. It seemed impractical. But as I've come to admit to myself, it has a certain charm. I also admire your fearlessness in the face of unbelievable danger.
  • Effie: Azama...
  • Azama: Please, let me finish. I've never said this before—to anyone! I...I love you.
  • Effie: I was hoping you'd say that. I think I love you, too. You seemed a bit prickly at first... But the way you always rushed in to treat me before anyone else after a battle... I started thinking of you as my hero.
  • Azama: Well, that IS the word I'd most likely use to describe myself...
  • Effie: Shh, don't spoil the moment. Anyway, I spend so much time worrying and caring about Elise...it feels nice to have someone who feels the same way about me. So, thank you!
  • Azama: You're welcome. I would find this existence much less interesting if you were dead.
  • Effie: Erm...yes. You do need to work on both receiving and giving compliments.

With Hana Edit

C Support Edit

  • Effie: HUP! And...there we go. Whew! That's some really deep mud. How'd you manage to get stuck like that?
  • Nohrian: Thank you, Miss Effie! I...I don't know. I must have been getting sleepy... The carriage just drifted a little bit. Thank goodness you were here to lift us out. And using only one arm! Goodness!
  • Effie: Oh, it's nothing.
  • Hana: Hello, Effie! I couldn't help but notice you helping those folks.
  • Effie: And you are...Hana?
  • Hana: Yes. It's a pleasure to meet you! I'm Lady Sakura's retainer. And you serve Princess Elise, is that right?
  • Effie: That's right. How can I help you?
  • Hana: Well...pardon me if I'm mistaken, but I believe we have a great deal in common. Lady Sakura and Princess Elise are both young royalty... As such, we appear to play similar roles. So, I'd like to ask a special favor of you.
  • Effie: And what might that be?
  • Hana: Simply put: I want to be stronger. I have heard of your legendary strength and now witnessed it for myself. Please share the secret of your superstrength with me! I only ask in the interest of better serving Lady Sakura.
  • Effie: I'm afraid there is no secret. I simply train my body diligently.
  • Hana: Oh, come on. The feat of strength I just witnessed was superhuman! I train as hard as anyone, and yet I have not reached a similar level.
  • Effie: You train as hard as anyone, do you? Very well, I'd be happy to work out with you sometime. I'm always looking for someone to push me in my sparring sessions.
  • Hana: Excellent! I think you'll find that I'm an extremely dedicated pupil. Starting now, I'm going to completely immerse myself in the Effie lifestyle. You know... I'll eat what you eat, do the same workouts... Hmm, I should even get on the same sleeping schedule... Let me just go grab my tent so I can set up next to yours. Oh, this is gonna be fun!
  • Effie: Uh...

B Support Edit

  • Hana: Ugh...I can't do this. Please, take the plate away!
  • Effie: Gladly! You're really not going to eat those eggs? Suit yourself. *nom* *nom* *nom*
  • Hana: Oh...watching you eat those is making me sick...
  • Effie: Oh, Hana. I'm just getting started. I've got another three bowls of rice on the way. I really love this new type of rice you introduced me to, by the way.
  • Hana: Three more bowls? Where do you put it?
  • Effie: Right into my muscles, of course. It's important to eat after working out.
  • Hana: Well, I know THAT, but I never dreamed of eating this much food at once. All right, Hana. You can do this. Do it for Lady Sakura. Gimme a big scoop of that rice, Effie! I'm going for it!
  • Effie: Are you sure, Hana? You've got to work your way up—
  • Hana: GIMME! *OM* *NOM* *NOM* This is nothing! I am stronger than the rice! I am winning! I am... I am... Oh gods...

(Hana leaves)

  • Effie: Good effort, Hana. Shake it off.

A Support Edit

  • Hana: You...you really wear all these weights while you run? I can barely lift my legs!
  • Effie: Well, sure! My muscles won't get any stronger unless I challenge them. So, I was thinking we'd do an easy 15 or so... How does that sound?
  • Hana: You run 15 minutes with all this stuff on? I'm not sure I can make it 15 seconds.
  • Effie: Er, I was actually thinking 15 miles...
  • Hana: That's it. I give up. You're not even human. You've outeaten me, outlifted me, and straight up outworked me in every way. I guess I'm just not in your league, Effie.
  • Effie: That's not true, Hana.
  • Hana: Please. I don't want your pity.
  • Effie: And I would never offer it. Hana, you are simply overlooking your own strengths. It's admirable that you're trying to improve your physical fitness. But you have other skills and advantages that I could never dream of attaining. You move so swiftly and wield your weapon with such ferocity... And I wish I were half the quick thinker you are.
  • Hana: Keep talking...
  • Effie: Plus, it's not like you haven't been working as hard as I do. We've been training together. I've seen your blood, sweat, and tears. But it's tough for me to watch you push yourself until you truly suffer. And I'm sure Princess Sakura would feel the same way.
  • Hana: You're probably right. I can be pretty hard on myself sometimes.
  • Effie: Yes. Unfortunately, I'm guilty of the same thing. But that gives me an idea... We must support each other! When I'm feeling down, you can step in and remind me how terrific I am. And vice versa, of course. If we combine our strengths, we can protect Lady Sakura and Lady Elise forever!
  • Hana: You're right, Effie. Thank you for helping me get some perspective. I'll keep doing the things I'm good at doing. And you do the same. Together, we'll be unstoppable!
  • Effie: That's the spirit! Now, if you'll excuse me, I do still need to run 15 miles...

With Hayato Edit

C Support Edit

  • Hayato: OK, steel yourself, Hayato. Here we go... HRRRGH!
  • Effie: Hayato! Do you need some help with that?
  • Hayato: What, this trifling load? *hrrrrgh* No, of course not. *huff* *huff*
  • Effie: Here, let me just help a little bit. HYAH!
  • Hayato: Gods! You made that look easy!
  • Effie: So, where do you want this? Over in the storehouse?
  • Hayato: Well, sure. I mean, now that you're already carrying it, you might as well...
  • Effie: Are you supposed to move all this stuff? Because I think I can get it in one trip...

(Effie leaves)

  • Hayato: One trip? All right, I'm not going to lie. It usually takes me at least five trips.
  • Effie: And there you go. All done!
  • Hayato: Thanks. I owe you one.
  • Effie: What's the matter? Did I put it in the wrong place?
  • Hayato: No, it's just... I can't believe you're that much stronger than me. It's a little embarrassing, to be honest.
  • Effie: Oh, Hayato. I'm stronger than everyone! It's kind of my thing. Besides, do you even need much strength to cast spells?
  • Hayato: No, I suppose I don't NEED to be any stronger. But I'm a grown man! I'm tired of being treated as a child. Maybe bulking up a bit would get me the respect I deserve.
  • Effie: Well, I respect you, Hayato. But I'd also be happy to help you with training.
  • Hayato: Oh? That sounds good. Especially after that display of raw power...
  • Effie: Ha! That was nothing. Really. REALLY. I can't wait to show you how strong I am. Uh, I mean...I can't wait to show you how strong YOU can be.
  • Hayato: Thanks, Effie. I'm looking forward to it.

B Support Edit

  • Hayato: *huff* *huff* *huff* Whew...
  • Effie: Hayato...are you OK?
  • Hayato: Yes, yes, of course. I just didn't realize that your training would be this intense. You do this every day?
  • Effie: Today's actually my easy day. But after I warm up with a couple hundred more squats, we'll get into it.
  • Hayato: No...I can't take any more!
  • Effie: But you looked so good at the start! Now you've just got to push through the pain.
  • Hayato: Effie, if I push any harder, you will have to push ME back to camp in a barrow. But believe me, I will persist in the long term. I'll be back for more!
  • Effie: That's the right attitude! You're going to be a pretty scary opponent when you're all beefed up. Just imagine... Raw physical power, plus your magical skills... I'm actually jealous. All I have to offer is my brute strength.
  • Hayato: Effie, that's hardly a trivial offering. You're almost incomprehensibly strong.
  • Effie: Sure, but sometimes I feel...lost...in combat. I envy our tacticians.
  • Hayato: But surely you realize that the mind can be trained—just like a muscle! And I'd be more than willing to help. It would seem a natural exchange.
  • Effie: You'd do that for me? Thank you, Hayato! I'll definitely take you up on your offer. But I think it's about time we got back to the business at hand—your workout!
  • Hayato: If we must.

A Support Edit

  • Hayato: Ugh...please tell me that's it for today. I can't take any more lunges.
  • Effie: Yes, that's it. Stretch those quads, and we'll call it a day. You're making a ton of progress, you know.
  • Hayato: Yes, I'm quite pleased. I have more energy, and I've been sleeping soundly at night. Who knows... Maybe someday I'll be known more for my strength than my smarts.
  • Effie: Oh, Hayato. You'll be known for both.
  • Hayato: Well, thank you, Effie. Speaking of smarts, we're about due for a lesson, aren't we?
  • Effie: I suppose so. Although I didn't come away feeling very confident from the last one.
  • Hayato: Nonsense! You were a fine pupil and showed adequate progress. And besides, I think I have something queued up that will pique your interest. War games!
  • Effie: Do you think I'm ready for that? I struggled so much last time...
  • Hayato: Hey, I wasn't ready to do a thousand lunges. But you made me do them anyway.
  • Effie: Well played. All right, Hayato. I'm game. Let's do it! It's an excuse to spend more time together, if nothing else.
  • Hayato: Er...
  • Effie: Did I say something wrong? What is it?
  • Hayato: No, no. Of course not. I enjoy spending time with you too, Effie. I suppose, as an adult, it's only natural to speak freely about such things.
  • Effie: Right! There's nothing to be ashamed of. Now, let's get down to battle!

S Support Edit

  • Hayato: Behold, Effie! This morning, I was able to complete your training regimen with energy to spare.
  • Effie: That's great, Hayato! You're looking strong.
  • Hayato: Yes, much stronger than before. I finally feel like an able-bodied adult. And look at you! Your battle tactics have never been sharper. You're formidable!
  • Effie: Well, I'm learning from the best.
  • Hayato: You really think I'm the best? That means a lot to me. I suppose all the preparation I've been putting into our lessons has paid off.
  • Effie: Preparation? I didn't know you were going to those lengths.
  • Hayato: It's nothing—and I'm happy to do it. Anything to impress a lady such as—
  • Effie: Lady? Impress? What are you getting at, Hayato?
  • Hayato: Er...I didn't mean to... *sigh* No use beating around the bush at this point, I suppose. Effie... I like you.
  • Effie: What?
  • Hayato: I...uh...that was not the reaction I had hoped for.
  • Effie: What reaction?
  • Hayato: You...you just crushed that gauntlet you were holding!
  • Effie: Oh, I'm sorry... I was just excited!
  • Hayato: Does that mean you're interested?
  • Effie: Yes! I...I think I'm actually in love with you, Hayato.
  • Hayato: Seriously?
  • Effie: Yes. I can't stop thinking about you, and I'm guessing that the feeling is mutual. I was wondering when you were ever going to get around to letting me know. But now that everything is out in the open, we can just relax and enjoy it!
  • Hayato: You're so direct. But...I think I like it.
  • Effie: This is what adults do, Hayato. And we are both adults.
  • Hayato: Finally! Someone noticed!

With Kana (Female) (Daughter) Edit

C Support Edit

  • Kana: Mama! Hey, Mama!
  • Effie: Hm? What's wrong, Kana?
  • Kana: Look! I picked some pretty flowers for you! They're yellow like the sun!
  • Effie: Oh, thank you. These daisies are beautiful.
  • Kana: Do you really like them?
  • Effie: Of course I do. But you seem to be bringing me a lot of flowers lately. What's gotten into you?
  • Kana: I just remember that when I was real little, we'd go looking at flowers together. You always smiled so much. And I love your smile, Mama! So I decided to start bringing you lots and lots of flowers to help you smile!
  • Effie: Oh, Kana. Thank you. Although I do have a favor to ask of you.
  • Kana: Anything, Mama. What do you need?
  • Effie: Remember how flowers need time to grow big and strong, just like Mama? Well, when you pick them, it means they can't grow anymore. It hurts them.
  • Kana: Oh no! I've been hurting them?! It was an accident! I'm sorry, flowers!
  • Effie: Don't worry, Kana. I'm sure the flowers know you weren't trying to hurt them. You just need to promise not to pick any more flowers, OK?
  • Kana: OK! But...if I do that, then how can I show you all the neat flowers I find?
  • Effie: Hmmm... Next time you find some, come and get me. Then we can go look at them together. How does that sound?
  • Kana: Really? You won't be too busy?
  • Effie: Of course not. I promise.
  • Kana: OK, it's a deal! We'll go look at all the nice flowers together! That's MY promise, Mama!

B Support Edit

  • Kana: La la lalala-la-la And now it's Mama time!
  • Effie: Aw. You look like you're in a good mood today, Kana.
  • Kana: Yeah! I found some great flowers for us to go look at! You're going to love them. I'm sure of it! Look! There they are, Mama!
  • Effie: Ooh. These are very pretty, Kana.
  • Kana: Yeah, they're perfect! They're pink and delicate looking, but super strong! They reminded of you, Mama.
  • Effie: It's sweet of you to say so, Kana...but I think I'd make for a pretty hungry flower. Still...thank you, Kana.
  • Kana: Don't be embarrassed, Mama! Flowers need food too! And lots of love! Just like Mama! But even flowers aren't as pretty as Mama's smiles.
  • Effie: Oh? Well your smiles are even prettier, my little chicken dumpling!
  • Kana: Really? Yay!
  • Effie: Oh, that reminds me. I have something to show you.
  • Kana: Oooh, is it something good? Can I see it right now? What is it?
  • Effie: It's-
  • Kana: Ah! Wait! Don't tell me! That way I'll be even more surprised when you have it.
  • Effie: Hmm...you're right. OK, then. It'll be a surprise!

A Support Edit

  • Kana: Mama, I'm here! Where is that thing you wanted to show me?
  • Effie: I have it right here. Come look.
  • Kana: Oh wow! This is such a big book! And look at all these flowers! Where did you get them?
  • Effie: These are all of the flowers you've been bringing me! I dried them out and pressed them between the pages to preserve them. I thought it'd be the perfect way for me to keep all your little gifts safe.
  • Kana: This is amazing! Like, really, really amazing! I hadn't realized how many flowers I'd brought you. Look! There are the yellow daisies I gave you the other day! Thank you for taking such good care of the flowers I gave you.
  • Effie: And thank YOU for all the love and flowers you've given me. With this book, I'll be able to cherish them for a long time to come.
  • Kana: You're welcome!
  • Effie: You know, we didn't pick those flowers we saw the other day... But we did make some nice memories when we went to go look at them. I hope we have many, many more memories like them. How about you?
  • Kana: I want that too! I love you so much, Mama!
  • Effie: I love you too, Kana.

With Dwyer (Son) Edit

C Support Edit

  • Dwyer: Mother, I made you some coffee.
  • Effie: Oh, thank you. Mmm... It's so flavorful. You've got a real knack for brewing coffee.
  • Dwyer: Really? I'm so glad you like it.
  • Effie: I admit that I wouldn't mind a nice piece of carrot cake along with it, but still... This is good black coffee. Honestly, it might even be better than your father's.
  • Dwyer: Wow. Better than Father? Really? That's very high praise. I should probably keep that to myself. He might get angry.
  • Effie: You really think he'd get upset over a silly thing like that? Jealous. Incredibly jealous, maybe.
  • Dwyer: Ahhh... That actually sounds much worse.
  • Effie: Heehee. He can be a bit competitive. I bet if he heard me say that, he'd brew coffee all day long and force me to judge it. He'd probably keep going until he surpassed your cup.
  • Dwyer: Ha. That does sound like Father. I still have more in the carafe. Let me know if you'd like another cup.
  • Effie: Will do. Thank you, Dwyer.

B Support Edit

  • Dwyer: Hrm...
  • Effie: Hello, Dwyer. Is something on your mind?
  • Dwyer: Oh, hello, Mother. No, nothing in particular...
  • Effie: You know that I can always tell when you're lying, right?
  • Dwyer: Oh. You can always read me so well...
  • Effie: Talk to me. Who knows? Maybe I can offer you some handy advice.
  • Dwyer: It's just that...I don't believe I'm suited for the battlefield.
  • Effie: Why do you say that?
  • Dwyer: Mother, you know why. I hate getting into fights. All I would do is weigh everyone else down in the heat of battle.
  • Effie: Oh, Dwyer.
  • Dwyer: Maybe I should leave the army and go off to be a butler...
  • Effie: You can't do that.
  • Dwyer: Huh?
  • Effie: You belong here, Son.
  • Dwyer: Why?
  • Effie: Because you're so very kind.
  • Dwyer: No, I'm not.
  • Effie: You are. Don't try to deny it. Just a moment ago, you tried to spare me from worrying by telling a lie.
  • Dwyer: All the more proof that I have no business on the battlefield. There's no room for kindness there.
  • Effie: You're wrong about that, Dwyer. Kindness is needed there because it's a battlefield. For instance, it's kindness that propels one to sacrifice themselves for a friend... I know it comes naturally to you, but it doesn't to many others. And It's important. There is nothing braver in this world.
  • Dwyer: Thank you, Mother. I'll do what I can to help my friends.
  • Effie: Don't worry: I'll always be here to watch over you.

A Support Edit

  • Effie: What have I done...
  • Dwyer: Mother? Is something wrong?
  • Effie: Oh, Dwyer. No, no. I'm fine. Just a little tired. You don't need to worry about me.
  • Dwyer: You know, a son can always see through their mother's lies.
  • Effie: Heehee. I suppose that's true.
  • Dwyer: I might not be happy to help, but I'm more than happy to listen.
  • Effie: That's very sweet, thank you.
  • Dwyer: So? What's up?
  • Effie: I just... I feel like I've failed you as a mother.
  • Dwyer: That's not even a little true. Don't say that.
  • Effie: I told you to go out onto the battlefield.
  • Dwyer: Ah, you mean when I was worried the other day?
  • Effie: Yes, exactly. But a mother's first and foremost concern should always be her child's safety. What kind of person encourages her son to run into danger, to risk their life? I'm an awful mother.
  • Dwyer: That's not true at all.
  • Effie: Hmm?
  • Dwyer: You may have suggested that I stand and fight, but it was my choice to stay. More importantly, if I hadn't talked to you and received your advice... Well, your words about courage and bravery moved me. I may have put my friends in real danger if we hadn't spoke before.
  • Effie: Oh, Dwyer.
  • Dwyer: So please, don't worry. You're absolutely not a failure. You're the best mother that anyone could ever hope for.
  • Effie: ...Thank you. It's very reassuring to hear you say that.
  • Dwyer: Now, how about I make you a hot cup of coffee to help you relax.
  • Effie: You're such a thoughtful son.

With Sophie (Daughter) Edit

C Support Edit

  • Sophie: Moooooooother!
  • Effie: Hey there, Sophie.
  • Sophie: Look! I found some of those flowers you love! Ones just like what you have!
  • Effie: They're very pretty.
  • Sophie: Heehee. I'm glad you like them!
  • Effie: Also, they're very familiar. Where exactly did you find these?
  • Sophie: That's what's so amazing! They were really close by! I can go back and get you more, if you want. There's a bunch more!
  • Effie: The thing is...I remember packing the dirt around flowers a lot like these yesterday.
  • Sophie: Then that means... Oh no! That explains why I hadn't seen these flowers there before! I'm so sorry, Mother!
  • Effie: Don't sweat it. It's a nice present all the same. Thanks, Sophie.
  • Sophie: Can...can I go back and plant these again? They'll grow their roots back, right? Awwwww! Why am I always screwing up things like this?!

B Support Edit

  • Sophie: *sigh* Why am I such a klutz?
  • Effie: Sophie? There you are... I followed the trail of sighs.
  • Sophie: Hey, Mother... Do you think I'll always be a klutz? Earlier today, I went to the market and got a bunch of apples for myself and Avel. When I got back, I decided to see if he could catch one in his mouth, but... I let go in the windup, and the apple hit an old lady behind me instead! Also, Avel fell over. I don't know why that happened.
  • Effie: Haha...sounds like you need to work on your throwing arm.
  • Sophie: Mother! Don't laugh at me.
  • Effie: What? Come on—admit it... It's funny.
  • Sophie: I'm seriously worrying about my future here, Mother!
  • Effie: Oh, whoops. I guess this is no laughing matter. Still, what's wrong with being clumsy, long as you don't handle heavy objects?
  • Sophie: I'm not a little clumsy! My life is one long series of mistakes and blunders!
  • Effie: Aah, everyone screws up now and then. It's only a problem if you don't dust yourself off and keep trying.
  • Sophie: But... But...
  • Effie: Hey, think of it like training. Every time you trip and fall... that's your chance to do a push-up on the way back to your feet!
  • Sophie: Now you're just making things up, Mother.
  • Effie: Heh heh...all right, maybe that was a stretch. Get it? Stretching?
  • Sophie: *sigh* Thanks for cheering me up, though.

A Support Edit

  • Sophie: Moooooooother!
  • Effie: Hey, Sophie. Feeling better today?
  • Sophie: I sure am! What you said the other day really cheered me up.
  • Effie: It did, huh? You didn't forget your troubles again the minute you hit the hay?
  • Sophie: Why do you always have to tease me?
  • Effie: You make it too easy, honey.
  • Sophie: Oh, that does remind me, though... I made a small mistake at breakfast today. I...accidentally gave the horses the soldiers' meals.
  • Effie: Th-their breakfast? Not the most important meal of the day...!
  • Sophie: But once I realized my error, I rushed to make fresh meals for everyone. Suddenly, they all joined in to help! It made me really happy.
  • Effie: You're lucky to know such good people.
  • Sophie: Yeah, I think so too!
  • Effie: Got any guesses why they went to all the trouble?
  • Sophie: Maybe they were worried that I would burn everything?
  • Effie: I doubt it. No, I think the real reason is... they saw the work you put in, and it made them so happy, they were glad to help.
  • Sophie: It did? I don't know...
  • Effie: I wouldn't worry about being clumsy. You're plenty strong anyway. I think the best thing for you and your friends is to bear down and push past it.
  • Sophie: OK, Mother! I think I can do that. Oh! Also, I think I found some flowers nearby that I'm sure you'll like. We can go check them out together!
  • Effie: Sounds good. These flowers you're talking about, though...
  • Sophie: Don't worry! They aren't the ones you replanted. I didn't pick any in advance, either—just in case!
  • Effie: Whew. That's a load off!
  • Sophie: All right! Let's go!

With Midori (Daughter) Edit

C Support Edit

  • Midori: Mother?
  • Effie: Oh, Midori. What are you holding?
  • Midori: Remember how your knee was bothering you the other day? Well, I made you some ointment. It should help out with the pain. It took me a couple of days to track down the right herbs, but I did it!
  • Effie: Why, thank you, Midori. That is so thoughtful.
  • Midori: Heehee. Why don't you take a seat and get comfortable. I will apply it for you, OK? Shoo, pain—stop bothering Mother!
  • Effie: Your special medicines are so impressive. The pain is already fading away.
  • Midori: Really? Yaaaay! Err, I mean, I'm glad that it helped.
  • Effie: Did your father help you concoct this recipe?
  • Midori: He sure did! I mentioned that you'd been hurting, and he gave me a few ideas. I still had to do a ton of research though.
  • Effie: You sure love to study, sweetie. I bet your father is awfully happy. I know how much he enjoys teaching you.
  • Midori: Heehee, I hope so! He loves it when I come to him with a new herb.
  • Effie: We are both so proud of you. You could never ask for a more wonderful daughter.
  • Midori: Heeheehee! Thanks Mother! I love you.
  • Effie: Aww. I love you too, Midori.

B Support Edit

  • Midori: *sniffle*
  • Effie: Midori, don't cry. What's wrong?
  • Midori: Nothing... Nothing, I'm fine. *sniff*
  • Effie: What's wrong? Don't try and hide things from your mother. Did something bad happen?
  • Midori: Well... I was in the forest collecting a few herbs, and some kids came up to me. They asked where my parents were and laughed when I said I was an adult. Then they said they were going deeper into the forest. I tried to stop them... But they turned to me and said, "Kids can't tell us what to do!" and ran off.
  • Effie: Ohh, that is just awful. Did the children make it home safely?
  • Midori: Yes, they did. I watched them carefully to make sure they made it back OK.
  • Effie: Ah, that's a relief. You're very thoughtful, sweetie.
  • Midori: I guess...
  • Effie: Don't let those kids get you down, Midori. Don't stop helping other people just because those kids didn't appreciate you.
  • Midori: I'll never stop helping people.
  • Effie: That's the spirit! Listen, even if no one appreciates what you do... I will know. And I will always be here to watch over you. Just relax. Follow your gut, and do what you think is right.
  • Midori: *sniffle*... Thanks, Mother.

A Support Edit

  • Midori: Mother!
  • Effie: Oh, Midori, hello. You seem to be in a good mood today.
  • Midori: I am! You remember those kids who I met while I was in the forest the other day?
  • Effie: Sure. The ones who ignored your warning, right?
  • Midori: Yeah, exactly. Well, I ran into them in town earlier, and they were so nice. They apologized and everything!
  • Effie: Is that right? I'm happy to hear that they understood you were only trying to help.
  • Midori: Yeah! Well, that and apparently their parents got mad and yelled at them for being mean. But they said they were really, really sorry.
  • Effie: Maybe those kids weren't so bad after all. It's wonderful when people surprise you like that.
  • Midori: Yeah! We're friends now! But, um... They invited me to go back into the deep forest with them. They said that we would be fine, now that I'm coming along. At first I thought they might be right, but... We still shouldn't go, right?
  • Effie: Well, going with a grown-up would certainly be best. But... If you promise not to do anything dangerous... And not venture too far in... Then I suppose you can go into the forest. Just be careful.
  • Midori: Really?! I promise, I'll be really careful! I won't do anything dangerous at all.
  • Effie: OK. Take care. And have fun!
  • Midori: OK! Thanks, Mother!

With Siegbert (Son) Edit

C Support Edit

  • Siegbert: Mother... So this is where you were.
  • Effie: Oh, hi, Siegbert,
  • Siegbert: You seem tired. Is everything OK?
  • Effie: Pfft, of course. Don't worry about me! My plate's just been pretty full, and it leaves me a little sore sometimes.
  • Siegbert: I see... Mother, I think I know the perfect way to help us both!
  • Effie: You do? Does it involve any heavy lifting?
  • Siegbert: No, no effort on your part is required. I'd like to give you a shoulder massage.
  • Effie: I'm not hearing the "help us both" in this, my boy.
  • Siegbert: Like you, I've been feeling some aches and pains. One of the healers here showed me some pressure points to relieve the pain, but I can't really find the spots when I try to massage myself. If I could practice on your shoulders, you could tell me when I find the spots.
  • Effie: Well, who am I to say no to that?
  • Siegbert: Excellent! Thank you, Mother. Here, try and relax...
  • Effie: Aaahhh... That's the stuff. I can really feel those trapezius muscles unclench! Thanks, my boy. But you said you were tired too?
  • Siegbert: No need for concern, Mother. I'm the one who should be thanking you. Now that I know where to apply pressure, my pain will be a thing of the past.
  • Effie: Heehee... Sounds good. And thanks for helping me take a load off, Siegbert.

B Support Edit

  • Siegbert: Ugh...
  • Effie: Your neck's looking stiff there, Siegbert.
  • Siegbert: It's nothing, Mother. Don't worry about it.
  • Effie: Shhh. Don't make any sudden moves. One slip of a finger, and I might snap your spine.
  • Siegbert: I'm fine, really! I don't want to be seen like this.
  • Effie: Heehee! Come on-a little embarrassment now and then builds character.
  • Siegbert: *sigh* Fine...
  • Effie: Now that we've got the tension out of your back... anything you want to get off your chest?
  • Siegbert: Nothing you need to worry about-I'm sure I can handle things on my own.
  • Effie: You sure about that?
  • Siegbert: Well... Lately I find myself lost in thought a lot. I can't help thinking that I'm not strong enough yet. Or wondering if I have what it takes to protect the people.
  • Effie: Oh, well, as for that, there's lots of people stronger than you. Me, for one. Lots of people smarter and more experienced than you, too.
  • Siegbert: Mother, you aren't really helping...
  • Effie: No, no, it's good that you know your weaknesses. It's OK to be a little weak now. You're young, after all. Spending time in the fire is what makes a man strong. I know it.
  • Siegbert: Time in the fire will make me strong... Thank you, Mother. I feel a bit better already.
  • Effie: Glad to hear it! And if your muscles ever get sore again...maybe ask someone with a gentler touch, huh?

A Support Edit

  • Siegbert: Mother, have you got some free time?
  • Effie: Hi there, Siegbert. Something on your mind?
  • Siegbert: Well, I'd like to give you another shoulder massage.
  • Effie: What, another one? Did you forget the trick to it so soon?
  • SIegbert: N-no, of course not! I just wanted to repay you for the advice you offered me the other day.
  • Effie: Oh! Sounds like you got something out of it.
  • Siegbert: Very much so. I've been able to apply that open-mindedness to several situations. I've learned from the villagers what it is to live diligently. And from my comrades. I've learned what it's like to face strong enemies... I've witnessed all different kinds of strength from the people I've encountered. And I've become acutely aware of my own shortcomings. But now, instead of grinding to a stop when I find a fault in myself... I want to push forward and overcome the obstacle.
  • Effie: ...My boy's growing up, I see.
  • Siegbert: I'm sure I'll still find things to be worried about... But that's also a necessary waypoint on the path to growing stronger... For now, I think I'll puff out my chest and brood a little, like Father.
  • Effie: Erm, don't overdue it. You know that when it comes to growing stronger, you can always come to me.

With Forrest (Son) Edit

With Ignatius (Son) Edit

C Support Edit

  • Ignatius: Hello, Mother. I was wondering if you could help me with something...
  • Effie: Of course, Ignatius. What do you need?
  • Ignatius: You know...now that I'm here it seems a little silly. Forget about it. I can take care of it.
  • Effie: You found another worm in your tent, right? Or is it a spider this time?
  • Ignatius: It's a spider riding a worm. If it had just been a spider OR a worm, I could have handled it—I swear!
  • Effie: Heehee! That's OK. That's what I'm here for. Do you want me to squish them or save them?
  • Ignatius: Oh, gods... Please do NOT squish them. Just take them somewhere far, far away. This will be the last time—I promise.
  • Effie: Yes, yes, of course. But just remember that you can always come to me for help.
  • Ignatius: I know. I really am working up the courage to handle my own bugs, you know?
  • Effie: I know. But I'll always be here to squish your bugs for you... Even when you're an old man and I'm a wrinkly old lady!
  • Ignatius: No, I said DON'T squish them! I don't want bug guts on my things!

B Support Edit

  • Ignatius: Good day, Mother. Do you have a moment?
  • Effie: For you? Of course. Another bug in your tent?
  • Ignatius: No! I told you, I'm going to deal with my own bugs from now on. Why, just the other day a ladybug landed on my forearm... And, through gritted teeth, I was able to gently brush it away.
  • Effie: That's great! But then...what can I help you with?
  • Ignatius: Well, it is about my tent. There's something wrong with it.
  • Effie: Oh? Does it need repairing? I'm not sure I'm the best person to help with that...
  • Ignatius: No, the fabric is intact. It's just... I believe my tent is haunted. As I was drifting off to sleep, I was sure I could see a face staring at me!
  • Effie: Aww, I'm sure there's a perfectly reasonable explanation. It was probably just an evil spirit.
  • Ignatius: MOTHER! That's not funny.
  • Effie: Heehee! Oh, I'm sorry. I couldn't resist. Don't worry, I'll take care of it for you.
  • Ignatius: I mean, I don't believe in evil spirits. I know they don't exist, but... What if they do?
  • Effie: Well, if evil spirits exist, I doubt they're strong enough to take me on. It's so funny...you haven't changed at all since you were a child.
  • Ignatius: I'm sorry. You've always been so tough. You must be disappointed to have raised a coward.
  • Effie: Don't be ridiculous! You're the most noble and brave and wonderful child a mother could hope for.
  • Ignatius: Really? You mean that?
  • Effie: Yes. You're just brave in a...nontraditional way. I've seen it.
  • Ignatius: Heh. Well, thank you, Mother.
  • Effie: Of course. Now, before I go investigate this evil spirit, I have one question. Do you still sleep with your stuffed animals at night?
  • Ignatius: Yes, what of it?
  • Effie: Well...how certain are you that it wasn't one of their faces you saw?
  • Ignatius: Oh. OH! Never mind.

A Support Edit

  • Ignatius: Hello, Mother. I have something for you.
  • Effie: Oh, it's beautiful. Thank you! Did you make it yourself?
  • Ignatius: Yes. It's meant to bring you good luck.
  • Effie: Well, thank you again. To what do I owe this random act of kindness?
  • Ignatius: It's just... I don't want you to die.
  • Effie: Oh. Ignatius...
  • Ignatius: I know I shouldn't worry about it, but... I get scared every time you fight. If something were to happen to you...
  • Effie: You've seen me train, right?
  • Ignatius: Yes, and I know how tough you are. But I still worry. You're the only person who accepts me just the way I am. I...I just can't stand the thought of losing you.
  • Effie: Well, thank you. It means a lot to me that you care so much. But we both know that I'm not the only one who loves you the way you are. What about your father? He loves you just as much as I do. And any of your friends in this army would sacrifice themselves for you.
  • Ignatius: You're right. Of course.
  • Effie: So please, try not to dwell on such morbid thoughts. None of us will live forever... That's simply the way of this world. All we can do is train as hard as we can to be the strongest we can be.
  • Ignatius: I know. I'll try to be stronger. I'm sorry if I worried you.
  • Effie: No, it's OK. Please don't worry about me. Let me give you a little tip. It's something that's helped me over the years. Just use your fear as motivation! Anytime you worry about something, go train! Anytime you get sad, go train! Anytime you find a spider in your tent, go train! Anytime—
  • Ignatius: Mother! I get it. Just promise me that you'll live a long, healthy life, OK?
  • Effie: Of course, honey. I promise.

  • Velouria: Mom? Where are you?! *sniff* *sniff*... *SNIFF*... Ooh, I thinks she's this way...
  • Effie: Hey, Velouria. What's up?
  • Velouria: Mom! There you are! I knew my nose wouldn't fail me in my time of need.
  • Effie: What, you got bullies to rout? Heavy books to lift? What can your mom do for you?
  • Velouria: Mom... May I have a hug? A big one? Right now?
  • Effie: A big hug, huh? You asked for it!
  • Velouria: *sniff* *sniff* Mom, you smell so sweet. Just like a flower!
  • Effie: Ha ha... Not what I'd have thought I'd smell like after a workout. But you've got the expert nose.
  • Velouria: *sniff* *sniff* I'm getting sleepy just being in your arms, Mom... *sniff* *sniff*
  • Effie: Poor little thing...tuckered yourself out. Let your mama carry you to bed.
  • Velouria: Mom... Don't ever go anywhere... I want to stay with you...forever... *sniff* *sniff* Zzz...

  • Effie: Something eating you, Velouria? It's not like you to pass up a meal.
  • Velouria: Mom, I've been thinking... You shouldn't be here.
  • Effie: Why shouldn't I be?
  • Velouria: I want you to go somewhere far away from here. Somewhere safe. If you stay here, something bad might happen!
  • Effie: You're right about that. Anything can happen in wartime.
  • Velouria: I know! That's why you have to go far away from this place!
  • Effie: What, just up and leave it all behind? Who would raise you? The wolves?
  • Velouria: I don't like the sound of it either, but it's the only way to keep you safe. Missing you is a lot better than losing you forever.
  • Effie: No can do, kiddo. I've still got allies to train! Enemies to crush! Squats to do! What would the other do without me?
  • Velouria: I don't care about the others-only you! You're my mom... I need you to be safe.
  • Effie: Oh, kiddo. It's because I'm your mama that I can't go anywhere just yet.
  • Velouria: I don't understand...
  • Effie: We're whipping this world into shape so that it can be a safe place for you.
  • Velouria: ...
  • Effie: I'm touched that you're worried for me. But I have to put my foot down on this one.
  • Velouria: Mom... May I hug you for a while?
  • Effie: Now that I can say yes to.

  • Effie: Really? Must be the new oil I'm using...
  • Velouria: Mom...I'm sorry for saying such funny things the other day. I won't ever tell you to go away again. I think I understand why you refused.
  • Effie: Water under the bridge, kiddo. I know you just don't want to see me hurt.
  • Velouria: I decided I'm going to get stronger. Strong enough to protect you! You're the most important mom in the whole world, so I have to watch over you.
  • Effie: The same goes for you. You're the most important daughter in the whole world. I used to get buff for the fun of it, but nowadays I do it to keep you safe. Because of all the little girls in the world, you're the one I care about the most.
  • Velouria: Is it OK if I hug you a little longer?
  • Effie: Knock yourself out.
  • Velouria: Can I hug you tighter and tighter until we both explode from love?
  • Effie: Ha ha... You can try!

  • Percy: Mom, I'm back! Is dinner ready yet?
  • Effie: Welcome home, Percy! Dinner's on the table. Have a seat.
  • Percy: No time to wait! I'm gonna dig in!
  • Effie: Wait a second. Have you washed your hands yet?
  • Percy: Oops, I forgot. I'll run and wash them.
  • Effie: Tee hee. Calm down, sweetie. There's plenty of food. What's your rush?
  • Percy: I have to eat fast... Every moment I'm not training is a missed opportunity. Eat fast, train fast! I need to get big and strong quickly. How else will I be able to keep you safe?
  • Effie: Oh, you're going to protect me? That's a sweet thought, Percy.
  • Percy: I promise, I'll never let anything bad happen to you! You can count on me!
  • Effie: I know I can. But please, slow down for moment to chew your food properly. You won't be able to train if you have a bad tummyache.
  • Percy: Good point, Mom. For the time being, I'll train myself to eat quickly but efficiently.
  • Effie: Teehee... Sounds like a plan. Let's eat!

  • Percy: Mom, I'm back!
  • Effie: Percy, your knee is bleeding! How did you hurt yourself?
  • Percy: Fear not, Mom! This scratch is merely a symbol of my dedication to training.
  • Effie: Sweetie, that has to be disinfected right away.
  • Percy: No, no, it's OK. I'm sure it will be fine if we leave it alone.
  • Effie: No, it's not fine. You have to carefully clean cuts so they don't get infected. And that wouldn't be fun at all. Here— hold still.
  • Percy: I'm fine, seriously. But if it will make you feel better...
  • Effie: A mother can't help but worry about her child sometimes. Now please, hold still while I put ointment on that scrape.
  • Percy: Ouch! You didn't say that would sting! Can you try to be a little more gentle?
  • Effie: Now, Percy. If you can't tolerate a tiny amount of pain, how will you protect me?
  • Percy: What? No, I was just...pretending! Yeah, I was totally just pretending it hurt. I can't believe you actually fell for that. Go ahead, put on more medicine! I can take it.
  • Effie: Don't be silly. I only needed a tiny bit. So how did you get this battle injury?
  • Percy: I was running down a mountain as fast as I could. But I lost my footing and tripped.
  • Effie: And you only got this itty-bitty scrape? You could have broken your neck! Can you please knock off the dangerous training?
  • Percy: But... How can I get strong enough to protect you if I do?
  • Effie: I appreciate the thought, Percy. But if it means putting yourself in harm's way, I'll have no part in it. The last thing I want is for you to hurt yourself. Do you understand? I just want you to be safe, sweetie.
  • Percy: You're right... I'm sorry, Mom.

  • Percy: I'm just not sure if I can actually get strong enough to protect you.
  • Effie: What makes you say that?
  • Percy: There are so many strong people all around the camp. Much stronger than me... What do I do if I come across a foe who is more powerful than I am? Thinking about that makes me lose confidence...
  • Effie: I understand, but please don't worry. If you work hard, one day you can be the strongest of them all.
  • Percy: You're just trying to make me feel better...
  • Effie: No, really, I mean it. I've seen you practicing hard every day. That work will pay off. Keep at it, and someday you could be the strongest person in the world.
  • Percy: Someday isn't good enough. What if evil rears its head before I'm ready to defeat it?
  • Effie: You don't need to worry about that. Until you're big and strong, I'll keep you safe. You know, I'm tough too. And eventually, once you're the strongest person ever, I'll let you protect me. OK?
  • Percy: That sounds like a great plan. It's a deal! I'm gonna work as hard as possible to become strong. Then no enemy will dare challenge me.
  • Effie: I'll always cheer you on. How about we have some dinner? I even made your favorite dish.

  • Soleil: There you are, Mom! What are you getting up to? Sharpening blades?
  • Effie: Oh, Soleil. Yes, I have to make sure that our weapons stay in top shape. They aren't effective in battle without proper maintenance.
  • Soleil: That makes sense...
  • Effie: What is it? I can't read that strange look in your eyes.
  • Soleil: Shh, be quiet. I need to take this moment so I can remember it forever. My perfect mother, standing with a blade glimmering brightly in the sun... Her hair swaying gently in the breeze while she takes the stone to the iron... Heehee! This is just too adorable!! What a cute scene! It's just too much!
  • Effie: Will you quit teasing me already?
  • Soleil: I'm not teasing you. Seriously! You're always so humble about everything. I never knew how much elegance and grace was required for maintaining weapons. The way you hold your sword just so... Or how your brow furrows in concentration... I can't handle it! Everything is so crazy adorable with you! We have to run into town and grab some tea together. I need to know how you became such a world-class cutie!

  • Effie: If I don't get started now, then there's no way I'll be able to finish up everything.
  • Soleil: Geez, Mom. Do you work this hard every single day?
  • Effie: Of course. I like to stay busy, and the animals won't feed themselves.

I've learned so much by watching you work the last few days... I feel like I appreciate all your efforts more than ever. I had no idea how much it takes to get everything done around here! I've never met someone who works as hard as you do.
  • Effie: That's thoughtful of you to say.

  • Effie: Heehee, don't worry about it. I think I can manage this alone.
  • Soleil: Gee, it's really cute to watch you be so selfless. I really wanna help though! Isn't there something I can do?
  • Effie: If you insist, I suppose you can pitch in.
  • Soleil: Yay! Thanks! You can count on me, Mom. I promise.
  • Effie: I know. But there's just one thing. I don't want to hear you carrying on about how cute you think everything is, OK? It's driving me nuts.

  • Mitama: Shoo now, little fly. / Leave Mitama to her sleep. / Do not buzz so loud.
  • Effie: Excuse me? I'm going to ignore that for both our sakes. Now, get up. You can't defy orders. Do you want to be court-martialed? ...All right. You've forced my hand. I'm coming in.
  • Mitama: Please, honored Mother. / My bed is warm; you are cold. / Do not part us so. Besides, I am too tired. I would just fall asleep at the table.
  • Effie: You're only tired because you were up all night reading poetry again. Sometimes I'm of half a mind to just take all your books and lock them away. I still don't understand what got you so obsessed in the first place...
  • Mitama: The answer is clear / A gift from Father did it / A brush and paper. The moment I could write, I was infatuated.
  • Effie: That can't be it. You could have done almost anything with a brush. You could have written stories or kept a journal or chosen to draw. But you chose poetry.
  • Mitama: I must ponder this / Other paths I left untrod / Where did I begin?
  • Effie: I can't imagine what started you on it. None of your caretakers were poets...
  • Mitama: Perhaps we should now / Try to solve this together / Mother and daughter.
  • Effie: Yes, that's a wonderful idea. We cou- Wait, I'm not falling for that! We're going to the war council meeting. Now.

  • Mitama: Before there was verse / Mitama did not exist. / Whence came Mitama? I was not myself until I learned of poetry. I must find myself to see where my self began.
  • Effie: Oh, I see. You've been thinking about our last conversation. And you think that finding your first poem will tell us what drew you to poetry?
  • Mitama: How long 'til 'tis found? / In a blizzard of poems / A single snowflake. It has been many days. But I am determined.
  • Effie: I see. Perhaps I can help you find it?
  • Mitama: Mm. You could look in that pile over- Ah! Wait! I may have found it / The Alpha of Mitama / Omega, my search.
  • Effie: Oh? What does it say?
  • Mitama: Mother does not come / I count the days passing by / Days without number.
  • Effie: You must have written this after one of the visits I missed.
  • Mitama: Yes, I remember now. You'd gotten very busy, and my caretakers told me you couldn't come to visit. I started writing poems to entertain myself while you were gone. Left waiting for you / My world turned inward to verse / Structure to sorrow.
  • Effie: I'm so very sorry, Mitama. I cannot imagine the pain I've caused you. Can you forgive me?
  • Mitama: Don't apologize / You had a duty, a cause / The world needed you. I'm sorry. I didn't want to upset you. And I want you to know I understand. You fought to protect me. I know that now.
  • Effie: Maybe. But maybe I could have made more time. I don't know. Hm. And we still don't know why you turned to poetry in particular. How about we write a letter to your caretakers?

  • Mitama: Hm? What does it say?
  • Effie: According to this, I was the one who started you on poetry.
  • Mitama: That makes little sense / You have no great love for it / What else do they say?
  • Effie: Give me a moment.
  • Mitama: Mother...?
  • Effie: Your caretakers say that I used to teach you the lyrics of the lullabies I sang you. You had trouble singing, so I taught you by reciting them. Eventually, you forgot they were songs, but you never forgot the lyrics themselves. And when you wanted to find more things like them, you naturally asked for poetry. Luckily, they had many books of traditional verses-tanka and haiku especially. Dozens, from the sound of it. And after that...well, the rest is history.
  • Mitama: Mystery dispelled / I know now the catalyst / My life's prime mover. But to think that so much of my life has hinged on a simple misunderstanding... A single mistake / Like ripples on a still lake / Echoes across life. But that means-
  • Effie: Yup. You've got me to thank for this mess. More importantly, I've got me to thank.
  • Mitama: Heehee. So, then... Yourself the wellspring / Can the source of the river / Choose to flow upstream? Come on, it is really not so bad!
  • Effie: Well, I suppose you're right. But maybe try not to let it cut into your duties, OK?
  • Mitama: Poetry and song / Daughter and mother allied / Invincible bond!
  • Effie: Heehee. I think I like that one!

With Rhajat (Daughter) Edit

C Support Edit

  • Effie: Rhajat, I must speak with you.
  • Rhajat: Hello, Mother. Why are you making that scary face? Did I do something?
  • Effie: Well, there's something very important that we must discuss. You have to be honest with me. Is that understood?
  • Rhajat: O-OK... What is it?
  • Effie: I heard that a group of villagers asked you to cast a spell upon them. Is that true?
  • Rhajat: They wanted me to perform a good-luck ritual for their upcoming harvest. I didn't really want to, but they were so insistent that I gave in eventually.
  • Effie: Well unfortunately, those same people have been complaining about you.
  • Rhajat: Why would they complain about me? I just complied with their request...
  • Effie: Well evidently the people who you tried to help have fallen ill. It's some kind of strange sickness that they've never seen before.
  • Rhajat: I don't know why that would be. But sometimes even benign magic can have unintended side effects...
  • Effie: These villagers are claiming that your spell is entirely to blame for this affliction. Rhajat, I know that you would never set out to hurt anybody. But you must tell me more about this enchantment. If it did cause the illness, we'll have to find a way to counter the effect. I can't stand to think of anyone fearing you due to baseless assumptions.
  • Rhajat: Those villagers will be wary of me regardless of what I do. Maybe it doesn't really matter...
  • Effie: Wh-what do you mean? You don't care if they're afraid of you?
  • Rhajat: It's just complicated, Mother. You shouldn't involve yourself in this. No good will come of it.

  • Rhajat: That bag is awfully large. What have you been getting up to?
  • Effie: Oh, I was just heading out to do some shopping. That's all.
  • Rhajat: Even you must get exhausted sometimes. Why don't you rest? I'd be more than happy to go to the market for you.
  • Effie: Oh, that's not necessary. I can do it myself.
  • Rhajat: Is this supposed shopping trip just a ruse? You're only now leaving the house, and yet that bag is filled to the brim. You were planning to assist those sick villagers, weren't you?
  • Effie: H-how did you—
  • Rhajat: I have a keen awareness of events unfolding around me. Do you feel obliged to come to their aid because they blame me?
  • Effie: No, that's not it at all...
  • Rhajat: Then what is driving you to help them?
  • Effie: I can't stand by and watch people suffer. I'm your mother, Rhajat. I know that you would never wish to harm anyone. My actions have nothing to do with you.
  • Rhajat: You didn't have to sneak around behind my back though...
  • Effie: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to deceive you. I really must be going. These supplies must be delivered quickly.
  • Rhajat: Wait... I know that I'm not responsible for this illness. I'll be able to explain everything soon. But I need a little more time...

A Support Edit

  • Rhajat: Here, Mother. I wanted to show you what I've been working on.
  • Effie: What is this herb, Rhajat? I've never seen it before. Wait a minute. Are you planning to cure the villagers' illness with this?
  • Rhajat: Precisely. It took longer than I would have liked to mature. I even had to use a bit of light magic to encourage the herb's growth. If I could have brought it to you sooner, I would have. I just needed to make sure it worked first. I'm sorry...
  • Effie: How did you discover this cure?
  • Rhajat: It took some time. When the villagers asked me to cast a spell for them, I noticed something strange... There were several people who were coughing profusely. A few of them also looked quite pale...
  • Effie: So the villagers were already sick before you even cast that spell!
  • Rhajat: Yes, exactly. I had heard that there was a rare herb that naturally fights illness. I managed to track down some seeds and got to sprouting them right away.
  • Effie: Why didn't you try to explain yourself to the villagers? They probably wouldn't have been so suspicious if you had spoken up.
  • Rhajat: My sole concern wasn't their perception of me. It was their health. The most important thing was to find a cure before the sickness got out of control. All I really cared about was you trusting me.
  • Effie: You can be so stubborn!
  • Rhajat: Um, why are you hugging me? We need to get this herb to the villagers right away.
  • Effie: Oh shush! Just let me enjoy this moment. You foolish girl!
  • Rhajat: Ow, Mother! Let me go already. It hurts when you squeeze me so tightly! Listen, you should help me turn this herb into a tea. That way we can distribute it quickly.
  • Effie: Yes! Let's cure the villagers and clear up this misunderstanding! Follow me. There's no time to waste!
  • Rhajat: You're right, Mother.
