"You're always looking after us. That sort of kindness reminds me of my sister. Must be why I like you."
"I always worry about my sister, Eirika. If I'm not there to protect her, anything could happen."
"The royalty of other worlds seem to prefer the sword. I like the lance. Lances have the edge over swords. You know, I once had ambitions to be the greatest spearman on Magvel, the continent I call home."
"You say weapons are shaped like your Breidablik back in your world? I'd like to visit and see that for myself."
"I might not look it, but I really do hope for peace. I've always got my lance handy, but there's nothing more precious to me than a kingdom at ease."
"I'm Ephraim. Now, how about we cut this short and get to sparring? It's a better way to get to know each other." (Greeting from friend)
"It seems that I've gotten much stronger here. My power has grown almost to overflowing. That isn't enough. Oh, I don't mean my strength. I've always been capable enough there. I mean that strength isn't always enough to protect us. Yes, it helps force a foe to submit. But strength can also blind one to others' feelings. That is exactly how I once lost a good friend. I must become kinder and more compassionate, or else I risk repeating my mistakes. You have those qualities. And so I must remain with you. Then I will learn all I need to. You'll find that I'm a grateful student...and friend." (Upon reaching level 40)
"Legendary Hero? Am I really so praiseworthy? I have a feeling the stories that are told about me tend to omit my thirst for battle."
"Eirika is my twin sister. We've always been together, ever since we were born. Well, actually, even before that."
"People criticize my fighting style— "reckless", they call me! Call me that when I lose—because I won't."
"Studying books is so very tedious... I could only make my way through them with help from my friend Lyon."
"I have a lot of experience fighting on horseback. I'm interested in anything that'll give me the edge in battle."
"I'm Ephraim. Would you be willing to spar with me? I want to get the measure of the army you have here." (Greeting from friend)
"Thanks to your ability to summon Heroes, you've been thrust into the position of a leader. That power is truly profound. It has the potential to shake the worlds. You should consider the impact you could make. What foe could possibly be beyond your grasp? I know that's a strange thought, but I've pondered this for a long time... You see, I'm drawn to battle. The stronger I get, the more I want to fight. I'm driven to test myself. I know that's just how I am. But I also realize that this is not a healthy impulse for a king. People here call me a Legendary Hero, and sing my praises... They say that I am a good king, one who has vowed to protect his people. I will become king, one day. And though I am not yet that man, I hope to be. And I will protect my people... Not just them. My friend also hoped to save his people, and I will protect them, too... My goal is to be a king beyond kings—one who breaks the bounds of human frailty. I hope I can reach that goal one day." (Upon reaching level 40)
