"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)
