"I'm part of a group known as the Greil Mercenaries back in my world. Though I'm its leader... I wouldn't exactly say that I've got a handle on our finances yet."
"You worn out? Let me know if you are. I'll help, unless you think I'll just get in your way."
"I train when I can, though usually by myself. I'm not all that great when it comes to... you know, talk."
"The Heroes here are strong. Being around them makes me feel... Huh. Doesn't matter. I just need to get stronger."
"I'd spar with my father a lot during practice when I was younger. I'd lose every time. Get upset. Then take him on again."
"Are you the leader here? In any case, I've come with greetings from Friend." (Greeting from friend)
"Back when my father was teaching me how to use a sword, I was barely more than a boy. Every training battle was more frustrating than the last. I... I just struggled with it constantly. Then he died. I had to protect my sister, the Greil Mercenaries, everyone that he did... it was all on me. But I was told to use what I'd been given. If I did, then great things would happen. And I'm battling enemies that are sometimes stronger than I am. Do I really have a place here? But you hired me - rolled the dice that I might help you do great things here. So... right. Let's just cut this short there. You believed in me, so I'm glad to give it my all for you." (Upon reaching level 40)
"So war has come to this world as well, and its people suffer for it. Seems there's work for me to do here."
"My father once led the Greil Mercenaries. Every person under his command trusted him fully."
"Let me take some chores off your hands so you can take a break. I'll... Hmm... I'll go chop some firewood!"
"This is Urvan, my father's axe... It's rugged and strong. It reminds me of him."
"Using an axe is different from using a sword. This guy requires power over skill. I need to get stronger."
"I'm Ike, from the Greil Mercenaries. I have a message for you. It's from Friend." (Greeting from friend)
"I had the strangest dream... It was of another world, and there were entire crowds calling my name. Countless people, all cheering for me. Can you believe it? I don't pretend to understand magic, but... Well, it wouldn't surprise me if that cheering is why I was summoned to this world. But if that is the case... I have to make sure I don't let them down. I'm no knight, and certainly no nobleman. My father was my only example of how a man should be. So I need to carry out his vision and make sure our mercenary company is something he would be proud of. To fight for the people, not for the money... That is my desire." (Upon reaching level 40)
"Legendary Hero? Well, in my world, we do tell tales of heroes from days gone by. That's the kind of thing you're talking about, right?"
"My father taught me everything about swordsmanship. He also taught the man who turned out to be his rival... We both did all we could to master his style of fighting."
"People aren't perfect. We all make mistakes. But we also love our families and our friends... We should never forget that we all have that same capacity for love."
"Time and again, I've fought when the chances of winning were slim. These were not battles where I weighed whether or not I could win. They were battles I had to fight."
"I'll repeat something I was told, once... 'You should challenge your fates. When all else fails, you can still die fighting.'"
"I'm Ike, and I've brought you a message of friendship straight from Friend." (Greeting from friend)
"It's always the same. No matter the era, no matter the world... War. The fighting never ends. You fight to make peace. And it may seem like that battle will never end... That it's out of your reach. Don't get discouraged. Your feelings are what drive you. Your actions have purpose. No matter how hard things get, you have to keep fighting. I know that you'll press on. I respect that. Let me walk your road with you. Once I get started, I don't give in. I'll stay by your side until the end, if you'll let me." (Upon reaching level 40)
