  • Avatar: Jakob, can we talk? I've made up my mind about something.
  • Jakob: Of course, milord. I am yours to mold to your whim. What is the issue?
  • Avatar: Well, the truth is...
  • Jakob: Please, do not hesitate. You have but to ask, and I will assist in any way imaginable. For you, Lord Avatar, I would walk through fire and ice... I would charge into an army of Faceless if you asked it of me... I would manually extract the fangs from a dragon's jaw to prevent its biting you!
  • Avatar: Oh, uh, thanks... Jakob. This isn't... anything like that.
  • Jakob: I remind you, Lord Avatar, that my talents are not limited to the battlefield! I can cook, clean, sew, smith, demolish, or bricklay anything you might require.
  • Avatar: I know you're extremely capa—
  • Jakob: Please forgive me immodesty... It is of course thanks to you that I am so accomplished in the butlery arts. Now I feel there's nothing you could ask of me that I couldn't perform with ease!
  • Avatar: Would you just let me finish?! I couldn't wish for a better butler than you, Jakob. I know I can count on you for any service, big or small.
  • Jakob: And yet, you clearly have something to tell me that you believe I won't want to hear...
  • Avatar: I want to be independent!
  • Jakob: Independent? ... ... Out of the question.
  • Avatar: What?! But... I'm an adult now. I shouldn't need your help all the time. And hey, aren't I supposed to be the boss in this relationship?
  • Jakob: Yes, but your authority has limits. Among them, you may not deny my reason to live.
  • Avatar: "Reason to live"? Aren't you exaggerating a little?
  • Jakob: Not even slightly, milord. When I was first sent to serve you, I was incompetent to perform even simple tasks. The other servants shunned me, since I invariably created more work for them. You were the only person who took the time to talk with and encourage me. I will never forget the kindness you showed me, and I will be indebted to you forever.
  • Avatar: Hmm... When you put it that way, I see your problem... But on the other hand, I want to be able to do things myself so I can help the others.
  • Jakob: A noble goal—but not incompatible with receiving help yourself from time to time.
  • Avatar: ... All right, you've made your point. Let's compromise... Teach me how to make a pot of tea.
  • Jakob: Tea? Why?
  • Avatar: I want to learn to help everyone, including you, Jakob. I want to be able to make tea for the person who takes such good care of me. Is that acceptable?
  • Jakob: ...
  • Avatar: Jakob?
  • Jakob: I'm... so touched. To think that my liege, Lord Avatar, would feel this way about me... Very well. If you insist on this act of wanton domesticity, I will not stop you.
  • Avatar: Really? That's great!
  • Jakob: But we must be cautious. Tea is dangerous business. Make it only when I'm nearby.
  • Avatar: You got it! Let's find some tea leaves and get started! Thank you so much, Jakob! You're the greatest butler in history!
  • Jakob: My word!

(Avatar leaves)

  • Jakob: ... I hope nothing ill comes of this arrangement. Lord Avatar has no experience in the kitchen. Things could get... apocalyptic...

B Support Edit

  • Avatar: This time I'm going to nail it! I'm going to make a perfect cup of tea for Jakob! So... first I... And then I... AH! Hot hot hot!
  • Jakob: All you all right, Lord Avatar?
  • Avatar: I'm fine. The kettle boiled over is all. Don't look so worried, Jakob—I can make a pot of tea in my sleep!
  • Jakob: So you have said, but... Forgive me for observing that you have not once managed it since our lessons began.
  • Avatar: That'll be enough truth out of you, mister. You have to at least admit I'm getting better at handling the kettle, though. All I need to learn now is how to keep the tea from going bitter.
  • Jakob: Quite, but... I'm afraid we'll run out of tea leaves first. And by "we." I mean the nation. Perhaps you should spend more time just watching me make tea. Then, after a while, you can start practicing on your own again?
  • Avatar: But... I don't want to get in your way while you're working, Jakob...
  • Jakob: Thank you, but to be honest, worrying about you is the bigger drain on my time.
  • Avatar: What? How so?
  • Jakob: Look to your left. When we started talking, I had washed all the dishes, but... now there's another mountain of them.
  • Avatar: Gods, it's like a sheer cliff face of stemware... I'm sorry, Jakob.
  • Jakob: Now, may I please just make the tea so I can tame the savage dish beast sooner?
  • Avatar: You know what? No. Go wash the dishes, and I will make the tea. I can do this!
  • Jakob: Ah. My apologies. I had forgotten just how stubborn you can be.
  • Avatar: ... I'm not listening, but I can still hear you. All right! Time to ignore Jakob and get back to this perfect tea in the making!
  • Jakob: *sigh* Fine. May I at least check your tea when it is finished?
  • Avatar: I suppose this is a bit pointless if I don't make it the way you like... All right, Jakob! It's finished! I think I got in this time! ... Probably.
  • Jakob: I shall be the judge of that. First, to examine the color of the tea... (and secretly add some sugar and hot water) ... Well done, Lord Avatar—the color is passable. Let's have a cup together.
  • Avatar: This is so silly, but I'm really nervous. It's just tea, though... *sip* ... Hey! It's not bitter!
  • Jakob: Ah, delicious! ... Good work, Lord Avatar. You are now certified to make a pot of tea.
  • Avatar: Wonderful! I'm going to go find some other people to try it as well!
  • Jakob: Do be careful running with that hot kettle! *sigh* I think I managed to cover up the bitterness. Even if it's a little bitter, everyone will gladly drink a cup of tea that he's made... I hope I haven't made a terrible mistake...

A Support Edit

  • Jakob: Lord Avatar, may I have a moment?
  • Avatar: Of course, Jakob. And thanks again for teaching me how to make tea!
  • Jakob: As always, I am delighted to serve you.
  • Avatar: You look pretty unhappy for a man who's supposedly delighted. What's wrong?
  • Jakob: I ... I need to apologize to you, my lord. I am... truly, deeply sorry.
  • Avatar: Huh? What for?
  • Jakob: The truth is... your tea was quite bitter. Undrinkably so.
  • Avatar: ...
  • Jakob: When you handed me the pot, I secretly added some sugar and more hot water! I shouldn't have done it, and I'm terribly terrible sorry. I just... couldn't stand to watch you do it wrong any longer, so...
  • Avatar: ...Hee hee... Hahahaha!
  • Jakob: Lord Avatar?
  • Avatar: Sorry, Jakob. I knew you did that.
  • Jakob: Y-you did? Then... you won't... punish me for interfering?
  • Avatar: Not at all. You were only trying to help me. I admit... I was too stubborn about it. So, I think that makes us even, don't you?
  • Jakob: You are most magnanimous, milord.
  • Avatar: Well, I also learned something from this: I still need your help to stay on track, Jakob. So.. can I count on you to stick with me even when I'm a stubborn mule?
  • Jakob: Of course I will. I promise to never leave your side. In all honestly... I seem to fall apart when I'm not with you as well.
  • Avatar: It's funny how alike we are.
  • Jakob: That you would even compare us that way! I might... faint with joy...
  • Avatar: No fainting, Jakob! Jakob? Jakob?! Wake up!

S Support Edit

  • Avatar: Hey, Jakob. Can you show me how you make that one tea that's kind of spicy?
  • Jakob: Tiger's milk? Certainly, my lady...
  • Avatar: You know... you've been sounding a bit distant lately. Did I offend you somehow?
  • Jakob: Oh... no... You could never...
  • Avatar: Are you all right? Do you have a fever? I've never seen your face so red!
  • Jakob: *sigh* I knew it was only a matter of time before you realized something was wrong. Lady Avatar, I'm deeply sorry, but I can no longer serve as your butler.
  • Avatar: What? You've got to be joking! Just the other day, we were saying how we'll always stick together! Where is this coming from?! I... I really did do something to offend you, didn't I?
  • Jakob: You have my oath that that is not the case. It's... just... *mumble*
  • Avatar: Huh? I can't hear you when you mumble, Jakob.
  • Jakob: ... I... I've... I've fallen in love with you!
  • Avatar: Jakob...
  • Jakob: However, it is not proper for a butler to be in love with his mistress. As such, I must ask to be reassigned to new duties far away from you, my lady...
  • Avatar: No! Ou-out of the question! I can't imagine going through each day without you! I need you, Jakob... I...
  • Jakob: My lady?
  • Avatar: I... I love you, too.
  • Jakob: What? What... do you mean?
  • Avatar: What do you mean, what do I mean?! I've always liked you, of course... But... recently you've come to mean so much more to me...
  • Jakob: I must be dreaming. There is no other explanation for this. Only in my dreams would Lady Avatar look at me this way... with her cheeks all flushed...
  • Avatar: Will you stop it?! You're embarrassing me! Besides, you're just as red as I am! Anyway, request granted: you are hereby fired as my butler. Would you consider being my husband instead?
  • Jakob: YES! ... I mean, if it pleases Your Ladysh—I mean yes, I would like nothing more than to be your husband.
  • Avatar: And we'll be together always...
  • Jakob: I love you... I was always afraid to say it, but from now on I will tell you every single day... I love you.

With Azura Edit

C Support Edit

  • Azura: You are the ocean's gray waves... (singing)
  • Jakob: What a lovely melody, milady.
  • Azura: Thank you, Jakob. My mother taught me that song. It always reminds me of her.
  • Jakob: Ah. That explains why you looked so happy just now. They must be lovely memories.
  • Azura: They are. That's all I have left of her now... memories and songs.
  • Jakob: At least you have that. I cannot even recall what my mother looked like.
  • Azura: Jakob, I'm so sorry. That's terrible.
  • Jakob: I'm afraid it is, but don't worry yourself on my account. The world is full of orphans. Still, it would have been nice to have learned a few songs. Please, excuse me.
  • Azura: Goodness, I had no idea. If I'd known, I would've chosen my words more carefully.

B Support Edit

  • Azura: Jakob, I know this is personal, but I'd like to hear more about your childhood.
  • Jakob: Hmm. What I said the other day must have bothered you.
  • Azura: I know I shouldn't pry. I just can't imagine not knowing my own mother!
  • Jakob: Well, I'm afraid I must begin by apologizing to you, milady. I lied. In truth, I remember both of my parents, although I often wish I could forget them.
  • Azura: What?
  • Jakob: You see, they chose to forget me. They left me on the doorstep of Castle Krakenburg.
  • Azura: They abandoned you?
  • Jakob: My parents were well off, but cold. They cared neither for each other nor for me. I cannot recall a single happy memory from that time. One day, they handed me over to be a servant at the castle. That was the end.
  • Azura: How terrible. I am so sorry, Jakob. I didn't mean to bring up something so painful.
  • Jakob: Ah, it is nothing. Don't worry about it, Lady Azura. It's all in the past.
  • Azura: I don't think I'd be able to forget so easily. You're very brave, Jakob.
  • Jakob: Nonsense, milady. Now if you'll excuse me, Lady Avatar will be wanting tea...

A Support Edit

  • Azura: Yet the waters ever change... (singing)
  • Jakob: I doubt I could ever tire of hearing you sing, milady.
  • Azura: Jakob, you are just the person I wanted to see. I still feel terrible about the other day. I should have known better than to pry into someone's past.
  • Jakob: There's no need to apologize. I can assure you... I wasn't bothered in the slightest. In fact, I should be thanking you. You made me realize how grateful I am to my parents.
  • Azura: Grateful?!
  • Jakob: Just imagine! If I had not been abandoned, I would not be serving Lady Avatar.
  • Azura: I suppose that's a good point.
  • Jakob: When I first arrived at the castle, I was a terrible servant. The others hated me for it! My noble upbringing had not prepared me for a life of chores and errands. I was unable to complete a single task to their standards. I only got in the way.
  • Azura: Really? That's hard to believe. No one is more competent than you now.
  • Jakob: That was not always so. Things got so bad, they were finally going to dismiss me. Just as I was about to be turned out into the streets, someone called for me.
  • Azura: Let me guess...
  • Jakob: Yes, it was Lady Avatar. She was looking for someone to chat with. I desperately wanted to stay and earn a place by her side... So I studied night and day to become a proper butler. And here we are.
  • Azura: I was impressed with you before I ever heard your story, but now, I'm inspired! Avatar is so lucky. I can't think of anyone more loyal than you.
  • Jakob: I am loyal to you as well, milady.
  • Azura: Thank you. That means a lot.

S Support Edit

  • Azura: The path is yours to cliiimb... (singing) Oh! Jakob, is that you? I didn't realize anyone was there.
  • Jakob: Pardon me, milady. I meant to announce myself, but I was entranced by the music. Your singing gives me such peace.
  • Azura: Aww. Thank you. I'm so happy that you can relax around me.
  • Jakob: Indeed, I can. With you, I feel at ease. I am not sure if you realize how rare that is. I've shared more of myself with you over the past few days than with anyone else.
  • Azura: I'm touched that you've trusted me with your story. We've both been through a lot.
  • Jakob: Yes. That's true. I am certain that is part of it. However, there is something else...
  • Azura: What's that?
  • Jakob: I've fallen in love with you, Lady Azura.
  • Azura: Oh, my.
  • Jakob: I know you are a princess and far above my station, but my feelings are so strong... I could not keep them to myself any longer. Excuse me. I will not trouble you further.
  • Azura: Jakob! Wait!
  • Jakob: Yes, milady?
  • Azura: There are so many details of our stories that I wish had turned out differently... But I would go through that pain again and again as long as it brought me here to you. Let's finish our stories together.
  • Jakob: Do you mean that?
  • Azura: Yes! You helped me appreciate the happy memories I already have... And you've given me the desire to create more. I'd like them to be with you. ... Jakob?! Are you alright?! I think he fainted!

With Felicia Edit

C Support Edit

  • Jakob: Too slow! Much too slow, Felicia! You can't afford to be so careful. The tea is going cold!
  • Felicia: Ahhh... I'm sorry, Jakob. Ok, I've set all the snacks on the table. All that's left is... Oh nooooo!
  • Jakob: I'm impressed, Felicia. Impressed with how you serving snacks resulted in an overturned table.
  • Felicia: I'm sorry!
  • Jakob: All you have to do is pour tea and present the snacks. Is it really that hard?
  • Felicia: I just... I got flustered and tried to hurry...
  • Jakob: *sigh* Never mind. I'll prepare everything.
  • Felicia: Please, Jakob... Let me at least help.
  • Jakob: Your help will only slow me down. Please just stand over there and watch.
  • Felicia: ...Understood.

B Support Edit

  • Felicia: That looks like enough snacks...
  • Jakob: Felicia? Why are you preparing a snack tray?
  • Felicia: Jakob?! I didn't see you there. Um... I was just practicing. I want to be as good as you are at this... I thought that practicing whenever I could might help me improve.
  • Jakob: That is unlikely.
  • Felicia: What...? Why would you say something so horrible to me?
  • Jakob: It's the truth. Practicing without feedback or instruction will not take you far. Gunter taught me everything I know. It was hellish, but I learned well. If not for him, I'd burn water and spill snacks left and right.
  • Felicia: You and Gunter are both very strict in teaching me, though... Won't that help me learn the skills I need?
  • Jakob: That's true, we are quite strict. You may finally learn... I'd say...maybe 50 years from now.
  • Felicia: In 50 years?! That's so much time...
  • Jakob: Felicia, this is really important: Can you tell the difference between good and bad tea?
  • Felicia: W-well...
  • Jakob: Come now; tea is a very subtle drink. To make it well, you have to be able to determine what good and bad tea is.
  • Felicia: I'll be perfectly honest. I...can't.
  • Jakob: I am not surprised. This is at the core of why you always make such incredibly unpleasant tea.
  • Felicia: But... Jakob, please teach me! I want to learn how to make wonderful tea!
  • Jakob: I suppose I have no choice but to mentor you now.
  • Felicia: R-really?
  • Jakob: We'll begin right away. Pour me a cup of your best attempt at tea.
  • Felicia: O-OK! I'll do my best!

A Support Edit

  • Felicia: Jakob? Jaaaakoooob!
  • Jakob: What's with all the noise, Felicia?
  • Felicia: I... um... made you some tea to try. Here!
  • Jakob: This is your doing?
  • Felicia: Indeed. All by myself. Stop stalling and try a sip before it cools down.
  • Jakob: If you insist...
  • Felicia: Well? What do you think?
  • Jakob: It's... surprisingly good.
  • Felicia: Aha! I knew it! I knew I could do it!
  • Jakob: I don't know what to say. I did not think you even remotely capable of this.
  • Felicia: I'm just as surprised as you are!
  • Jakob: Seconds, please.
  • Felicia: What?! I'm sorry, Jakob. I don't think I quite heard you correctly there...
  • Jakob: I would like a second cup, please.
  • Felicia: Of course! Oh, but I only made that one cup... I'll have to make more. Please give me a little time.

(scene transition)

  • Felicia: Almost done!
  • Jakob: You're taking so long... I could have done several things in this amount of time.
  • Felicia: Heehee, my apologies. I just wanted to make sure I got it right. It's all thanks to you that I can do this. You never gave up and kept guiding me in the right direction. I really am grateful to you.
  • Jakob: OK. You're welcome. Whatever. Pour the tea.
  • Felicia: Oh! Of course. Here you go. Drink up!
  • Jakob: Oh geez. Ew, that's awful.
  • Felicia: What?! But how...
  • Jakob: Apparently the tea you created before was merely a fluke.
  • Felicia: Awww...
  • Jakob: You clearly need training. Clearly I am going to have to be even stricter.
  • Felicia: I suppose so...

S Support Edit

  • Felicia: Ohh no no no no no!
  • Jakob: Really, Felicia? Again?
  • Felicia: I-I'm sorry, Jakob! I lose my balance and...
  • Jakob: I am beginning to think there is no cure for how clumsy you are.
  • Felicia: Urgh... I'm really sorry...
  • Jakob: I've never felt so powerless as a mentor. I wish I could do more to teach you.
  • Felicia: It's not your fault!
  • Jakob: No, it is. And it's about time I accept that and act accordingly.
  • Felicia: You don't mean... Are you quitting as my mentor? You can't do that! Please don't abandon me!
  • Jakob: I didn't say anything about quitting. I just said I had to act accordingly.
  • Felicia: I don't know what you mean...
  • Jakob: Felicia, I think the only solution is for me to stay by your side for as long as I can. I will spend the rest of my life mentoring you.
  • Felicia: Together... for life? I'll definitely have time to improve, then I'm glad!
  • Jakob: I suppose then we will need to get married, as well. If I am to remain with you forever.
  • Felicia: What?! I don't want you to marry me out of obligation. It's only mentoring... Without real love, it's not a true marriage at all, really...
  • Jakob: Again, you are putting words in my mouth. This isn't out of obligation at all. Do you understand? I want to do this. Felicia, I love you.
  • Felicia: Jakob... Were you only pretending that my tea was awful all along? Was that actually an excuse to spend more time with me?
  • Jakob: Gods, no. Your tea is truly a nightmare. But... I think that together we can wake from it.

With Silas Edit

C Support Edit

  • Silas: Oh, hi, Jakob. How are things?
  • Jakob: Silas. Caught up on some fool's errand of mercy, I trust?
  • Silas: H-how did you know?
  • Jakob: It's clear on your face. You have the look of a man acting selflessly. I'm surprised that philosophy hasn't worn you down into a husk of a man by now.
  • Silas: Say what you want. I'm no hero...
  • Jakob: Yet you've never met sob story you won't hear in full.
  • Silas: Well, you have me there...
  • Jakob: The more you listen, the more spellbound you become...Until you're more weighted down by the problem than its actual sufferer. Am I wrong?
  • Silas: Not...exactly...
  • Jakob: Well! This sounds to me like the very definition of a hero. My condolences.
  • Silas: Ughhh. He's got me dead to rights...!

B Support Edit

  • Silas: ...
  • Jakob: Oh dear, a do-gooder in the dumps. I'd best keep my distance.
  • Silas: Jakob...
  • Jakob: Ugh. Kindly keep those puppy-dog eyes to yourself.
  • Silas: No, just listen for a second.
  • Jakob: Absolutely not. Whatever is troubling you, keep it to yourself.
  • Silas: Don't say that! You can at least give me a little of your time.
  • Jakob: A little is all you want, eh? You have 10 seconds. Talk.
  • Silas: What do you say to someone who adamantly refuses to battle?
  • Jakob: So then, some fresh-faced young soldier has cold feet? You care far too much... The idea of getting so involved in someone else's issues is utterly foreign to me.
  • Silas: He said he doesn't want to die, because he left someone behind when he went to war.
  • Jakob: Then he should return home.
  • Silas: That's what I said, but he protested that he can't abandon his unit here.
  • Jakob: Then he should stay.
  • Silas: Come on, be serious!
  • Jakob: I'm being as serious as I need to be. If anyone isn't approaching the problem with sufficient gravity, it's your soldier. If he had time to share his sob story with you... he has time to think seriously about his dilemma and find a solution.
  • Silas: ...You're right. There's nothing I can tell him he doesn't already know. He needs to decide himself. Thanks, Jakob. I'll go and have a chat with the poor guy.
  • Jakob: What a waste of my time...

A Support Edit

  • Silas: Jakob! Wait up!
  • Jakob: Ah, if it isn't Silas the do-gooder.
  • Silas: Thanks for your advice the other day. The soldier I was talking to ended up going back home.
  • Jakob: I don't need a debriefing on this. It's none of my concern.
  • Silas: Hahah, you're such a sourpuss.
  • Jakob: Don't laugh at me.
  • Silas: Sorry. It's just that you keep calling me a do-gooder... And it turns out you're not such a bad guy yourself.
  • Jakob: ...Excuse me?
  • Silas: Just the other day, for instance. I asked you to listen to a problem of mine, and you gave me some advice on it.
  • Jakob: ...
  • Silas: I have to say, it was a huge weight off my shoulders. I really owe you.
  • Jakob: Then repay me at once.
  • Silas: Sorry, what?
  • Jakob: I demand you repay the time I wasted listening to your drivel. Me, a do-gooder...it's absurd. It's slander. I won't stand for it. You will restore that time to me at once.
  • Silas: J-just how do you suggest I give you back your time?!
  • Jakob: There you go again, expecting me to solve your problems. Reprehensible. I'll be collecting each and every second from you before long.
  • Silas: All right already! I take back what I said about you being a do-gooder. You're as cold as the wind off the Northern Fortress tower...
  • Jakob: So long as we understand each other. That way, I won't get caught up in dealing with other people's tedious problems.
  • Silas: This is ridiculous. How far are you willing to go to hide your embarrassment?
  • Jakob: Are you still here?
  • Silas: Not for long!

With Mozu Edit

C Support Edit

  • Mozu: *sob*
  • Jakob: Mozu? Are you all right?
  • Mozu: Y-yes. I'm fine. I just had a dream about my hometown. Before the Faceless came. I saw them all. I talked to them. My family, my friends, all the townspeople. Then I woke up. And it's like they were taken from me a second time... WHY?! Why did it have to happen to them? What did any of them DO?!
  • Jakob: Mozu...I'm sorry. But crying won't bring them back.
  • Mozu: I know that, I do, but– *sob* I...I can't help it...
  • Jakob: Hm. In that case...I suppose you should cry as long as you need. One day, you will find you have been emptied of tears. And on that day, you'll have the strength to move on. But no sooner.
  • Mozu: I-I hope so. *sob*

B Support Edit

  • Mozu: *sob*
  • Jakob: Mozu? Thinking of your hometown again?
  • Mozu: Y-yeah. I don't want you to get the wrong impression, though. I'm not always crying. I just keep remembering it by accident. Little things keep setting me off. Like just now I saw a soldier who reminded me of one of the boys back home. He was so sweet... He helped us out that time my ma got sick. I'll never forget it.
  • Jakob: I see. I'm almost jealous of you.
  • Mozu: Jealous? Of me? How can you say that?!
  • Jakob: I do not suffer as you do, from having lost something precious. Because there is no part of my past that I can recall with fondness.
  • Mozu: Huh?
  • Jakob: I was given over to the palace at a young age. I never saw my parents again. "Given over" is perhaps a euphemism. I was thrown away at the first opportunity. I have no good memories of my parents. They were cruel beyond measure. Nor did they live in anything resembling a loving community.
  • Mozu: Jakob...
  • Jakob: If I hadn't met Lady Avatar, I believe my life would still be a perpetual torment.
  • Mozu: I'm sorry...
  • Jakob: Yes. So I think you are, in some ways, blessed. You have good memories of your village. And no one can take that from you.
  • Mozu: You're right. I should be more grateful for the things I do have. Thank you, Jakob. I feel a little better now.

A Support Edit

  • Mozu: Haaa! Yaaaaa!
  • Jakob: Mozu? Are you training?
  • Mozu: Yep! That's right. I wanna be stronger, so I can help protect everyone else!
  • Jakob: Oh? You seem a changed person. Are you through with your crying now?
  • Mozu: No. I still cry sometimes. But I know I can't cry forever. I need to keep living my life. And to fight. For the sake of everyone I've lost.
  • Jakob: Oh? Are you sure you're not going to start crying right now?
  • Mozu: Hey! Don't be cruel! It's too late for that... I already know you're a good man.
  • Jakob: Oh? You think you know me, then?
  • Mozu: Yeah. I reckon I do. You're always talking to me when I'm crying. And I know you've been watching out for me this whole time.
  • Jakob: I just happened to be around. Don't get the wrong idea.
  • Mozu: Ahaha! You're not the honest type, are you?
  • Jakob: Tsk. How frustrating you country folk can be sometimes. Barbarians, all.
  • Mozu: Thank you. For caring about me. And helping me. I'll keep trying to be useful to everyone here. You just keep watching out for me, OK. Jakob? I could still use the help.
  • Jakob: Hmph! Perhaps. If I feel like it.

S Support Edit

  • Jakob: Mozu. Would you help me with something?
  • Mozu: Help you? With what?
  • Jakob: Do you remember what I told you before about my childhood? That I didn't have any memories worth cherishing?
  • Mozu: Yes, I remember.
  • Jakob: I was hoping that you would help me to make new memories. Good memories.
  • Mozu: Aw, I'd be glad to. Did you have any particular types of memories in mind?
  • Jakob: Yes, actually. What I mean is...I want you to share in my life with me.
  • Mozu: Jakob, do you mean...?
  • Jakob: So what do you say? Will you help me?
  • Mozu: I would love to help you. But first, could you tell me-exactly-what you mean?
  • Jakob: I am offering myself to you, Mozu. I want to be yours. When I'm with you, I feel more at ease than at any other time. So, please, will you marry me?
  • Mozu: Are you sure? Wouldn't you prefer a wife who was more...sophisticated?
  • Jakob: Mozu, please, you mustn't think that way. You are the most exquisite lady I know.
  • Mozu: Th-then yes! I'll be yours. I love you, Jakob.
  • Jakob: Truly? Oh, Mozu! I love you too! May we be together to the end of our days!
  • Mozu: Teehee. I hope we are too!

With Hinoka Edit

C Support Edit

  • Hinoka: Ha! Hai-yah! 
  • Jakob: Holding nothing back, not even when simply training... Unsurprising, Princess Hinoka. I see why you're called the warrior princess. 
  • Hinoka: Hello, Jakob. I didn't realize you were standing there.
  • Jakob: Please excuse my interruption.
  • Hinoka: It's no problem. I was planning to take a short break anyway.
  • Jakob: If you'd like, I could prepare some tea for you...
  • Hinoka: No, that's all right. I'll only be resting for another minute or so.
  • Jakob: You're interesting, Princess Hinoka... You're a member of royalty, but you insist on being in the front lines of battle. I know of no one quite as courageous as you are.
  • Hinoka: I've spent many, many hours of my life training to be the best warrior possible. It'd be a shame if I wasted all that effort by hiding in the rear of the army. Of course, I learned all the proper formal behaviors for a princess, too... But that was when I was a child, and I've forgotten a lot of it by now.
  • Jakob: Hahaha, I can see that. Looking at you with that weapon in hand, it's hard to picture you curtsying.
  • Hinoka: I cast aside a lot of that formality in favor of martial prowess. I don't regret that decision for a moment. I won't set my weapon aside now that Avatar is no longer a prisoner. There is still a lot of fighting left to do.
  • Jakob: ...

B Support Edit

  • Jakob: Hello, Princess Hinoka...
  • Hinoka: Jakob? I didn't see you there. What do you need?
  • Jakob: Pardon my forwardness, but might I offer a suggestion?
  • Hinoka: Speak your mind.
  • Jakob: Would you be interested in revisiting the formal etiquette you've forgotten?
  • Hinoka: Etiquette? You're referring to courtly behavior and such? What good will that do? There isn't a lot of use for a formal greeting in battle.
  • Jakob: Perhaps not directly, but... Don't think of it as something that will impact your normal training. We'd only practice in your free time. You never know when it may come in handy.
  • Hinoka: If I agreed, you'd be my teacher? I suppose there is some value in the royalty knowing about more than just war... If you truly think this will help me, then I will go along with the idea. Let's get started right away.
  • (Scene fades, then returns)
  • Jakob: Well done, Princess Hinoka. You've clearly retained more of what you learned as a child than you thought.
  • Hinoka: I didn't realize how ingrained that knowledge really was. I suppose I can thank my childhood tutors for that. Not as bad a starting point as you thought it would be, then?
  • Jakob: Yes. I'm actually quite relieved.
  • Hinoka: Heh. Well, if we're done for today, I'll return to my regular training!

A Support Edit

  • Hinoka: Hiyah! Haaaa!
  • Jakob: Hello, Princess Hinoka. I've brought you some iced tea.
  • Hinoka: Oh, thank you, Jakob. It's good that you came, actually. I had something I wanted to ask you...
  • Jakob: What is it?
  • Hinoka: I'm curious why you proposed revisiting my courtly education the other day.
  • Jakob: That's simple, Princess Hinoka. War is not limited only to the battlefield.
  • Hinoka: Hrm. Heh, I see what you're saying. And you're definitely right. Politics and diplomacy are versions of war.
  • Jakob: Indeed. Not all battles can be won with numbers and swords. At least, that's my personal opinion.
  • Hinoka: So... by reminding me of my courtly training, you've really given me another weapon. On a political battlefield, careful words and behavior are my sword and shield. Have I got that right?
  • Jakob: Indeed, Princess Hinoka.
  • Hinoka: Thank you, Jakob. This is as important as any combat training.
  • Jakob: I'm happy to help, Princess Hinoka.

S Support Edit

  • Jakob: Princess Hinoka, might I have a moment of your time?
  • Hinoka: Of course, Jakob. What do you need? Is it already time for another etiquette lesson?
  • Jakob: No, Princess Hinoka... I... Well, I wanted to tell you that I love you.
  • Hinoka: Wh-what?!
  • Jakob: I was hoping that we could be together. I've brought you a present...
  • Hinoka: Hang on a second! This is all coming very suddenly!
  • Jakob: It isn't all that sudden, really. I gave this a great deal of thought and consideration before I came to talk to you.
  • Hinoka: It's all very sudden for me, though! We've never talked about romance at all.
  • Jakob: You do have a point there... I can return another day, after you've had some time to consider things.
  • Hinoka: N-no, hang on. I just need a moment to compose myself.
  • Jakob: Take all the time you need.
  • Hinoka: You know I'm not the traditional princess. Despite the lessons you've been giving me, I won't give up my warrior training.
  • Jakob: I understand this.
  • Hinoka: I'll be in dangerous situations constantly. I suppose I'm just curious... What is it about me that caught your eye?
  • Jakob: It's obvious, isn't it? Your ambition, your dedication, your strength... I find all of that attractive.
  • Hinoka: O-oh! Well... You realize that, as a member of Hoshidan royalty, my life is different than most?
  • Jakob: Of course. What of it?
  • Hinoka: Just that, if we were to be together... You'd have to adapt to a completely new kind of life. It isn't always fun, either. There are obligations and responsibilities...
  • Jakob: If that is all that stands between me and you, I'll gladly face the challenge.
  • Hinoka: Hrm... There's also—
  • Jakob: Allow me to interrupt you here, and I'm sorry for being so blunt... But I suspect you are just looking for reassurance that your feelings are true. I could tell from the moment I spoke that we feel the same way about each other.
  • Hinoka: Jakob... Hah. Thank you for being so direct. You're right. How did you know?
  • Jakob: I spent several hours talking to myself in the mirror, tackling all my own excuses. We may not be equals in battle prowess, but we definitely share some similarities.
  • Hinoka: Well said... OK, Jakob let's go forward in life together.
  • Jakob: I'm so happy to hear you say that, Hinoka.

With Takumi Edit

C Support Edit

  • Takumi: Hello, Jakob. Would you be able to do a favor for me?
  • Jakob: Prince Takumi. What is it you need of me?
  • Takumi: I need some assistance in my training, and I thought you’d be just the person to help.
  • Jakob: Me? Why? There must be others much more suitable for you to train with…
  • Takumi: Because it seems like you can keep a secret. I want to do some special training, but I would rather others not know about it.
  • Jakob: I see. You would prefer people only see the result of your hard work, and not the work itself.
  • Takumi: N-no! That’s not what I meant! Though I suppose, if you wanted to put it simply… That isn’t incorrect.
  • Jakob: Hm. In any case, it seems you have a few misconceptions about me. You should know I am very, very bad at keeping secrets. Even small ones. Granted, I will happily keep all of Lord/Lady Avatar’s secrets until I die… But that courtesy is not extended to anyone else.
  • Takumi: I suppose I cannot trust you to see me train in private, then…
  • Jakob: I apologize, Prince Takumi. I am completely dedicated to Lord/Lady Avatar. Also, you seem to have mistaken me for an accomplished fighter. I am a simple butler. If you want to refine your skills in making tea, though…
  • Takumi: Now you’re just lying! I’ve seen you fight on the battlefield!
  • Jakob: Of course—I will defend my liege to the end of time. That said, training with others is not exactly in my job description.
  • Takumi: You say that, but I’m starting to suspect you’re just not willing to make the effort.
  • Jakob: My apologies. The duties and requirements of a butler are numerous. I must dedicate all of my time to them.
  • Takumi: Hrmph. Fine! I’ll keep in mind that you cannot be relied upon in these matters.
  • Jakob: Thank you for understanding, Prince Takumi.

B Support Edit

  • Takumi: And...loose.
  • Jakob: Ah, Prince Takumi. I see you are practicing your archery today.
  • Takumi: Indeed. Alone.
  • Jakob: It seems odd for you to point that out. After all, you did say you wanted to train without anyone knowing you were.
  • Takumi: Yes, but... No, never mind. If you aren't here to help, then you can leave.
  • Jakob: I have a question for you, Prince Takumi.
  • Takumi: *sigh* What?
  • Jakob: What is it you expected me to do to help you train? It seems like all I would be able to do is sit and watch you fire arrows at targets.
  • Takumi: With help I could do some different kinds of training. You really are pretty self-centered and lazy, you know that?
  • Jakob: Just another of your misconceptions, Prince Takumi. I simply prioritize Lord/Lady Avatar over all others—as I should, being his/her retainer.
  • Takumi: But to the complete exclusion of all others? That's not something to be proud of! Anyway, you're not planning to just hang around all day, right? You're distracting.
  • Jakob: Actually, Lord/Lady Avatar asked me to help you with your training. Since it was a direct request from him/her, I happily obey.
  • Takumi: Really? Well then... You can help by standing over here.
  • Jakob: Just know that Lord/Lady Avatar only asked me to help with your training and that's all. I will not do anything that doesn't directly relate to your practice.
  • Takumi: You're incredibly difficult to work with.
  • Jakob: That's just a matter of opinion. Lord/Lady Avatar doesn't complain.
  • Takumi: *sigh* Fine. Just sit over there.
  • Jakob: Understood. I'm glad to be of service.
  • Takumi: Now put this apple on your head.
  • Jakob: P-Prince Takumi?! I don't see how this—
  • Takumi: You're helping with my archery training. This will help me practice discipline. While it's tempting to aim a little lower, I must fight that impulse and hit my target. You can refuse, of course, but I'll inform Avatar that you weren't helpful.
  • Jakob: I... OK.
  • Takumi: Don't worry! I haven't messed this shot up yet. Though that could mean I'm due to make a mistake...
  • Jakob: Urgh... Maybe I could have been a bit nicer...

A Support Edit

  • Takumi: Hello, Jakob. Will you be able to help me with my training again?
  • Jakob: Of course, Prince Takumi. Though I may not enjoy it, I cannot risk you telling Lord/Lady Avatar anything negative.
  • Takumi: Hahaha! At least I know how you feel about helping, then.
  • Jakob: I have to ask, though... Don't you think you have practiced enough already?
  • Takumi: What do you mean?
  • Jakob: You're known to be one of the best archers ever. What more do you have to prove?
  • Takumi: Others may think of me that way, but I'm not satisfied with my skill. I know I can still become stronger, and I know others will recognize me for it.
  • Jakob: It's approval you seek, then...
  • Takumi: You know exactly what I'm talking about, don't you?
  • Jakob: I do, but I abandoned that desire a long, long time ago. I grew up.
  • Takumi: Hey, what are you trying to say?
  • Jakob: I apologize, Prince Takumi. I mean that you still have some growing to do... I'm not good at dealing with those younger than myself.
  • Takumi: I'm not that much younger than you are!
  • Jakob: That may be true, but there is a certain wisdom that comes with age. I do not think you have yet found that wisdom.
  • Takumi: Grrr... Just you wait! I'll prove that you're wrong!
  • Jakob: I look forward to it, Prince Takumi.
  • Takumi: OK, enough stalling! I need to burn off this energy with some training.
  • Jakob: Very well. Let's get to it. What do you say to an accuracy competition instead of regular training? I don't think I'll be able to hold back. Are you ready for me to give it my all?
  • Takumi: Of course! Bring it on!

  • Jakob: No one has a kinder heart that you... But if you tend to everyone but yourself, you'll only wear yourself out.
  • Sakura: Jakob, these people are hurting...because of us!
  • Jakob: Even if that's the case, you cannot solve everything on your own.
  • Sakura: If I don't do something...th-then who will?! *gasp* I'm sorry...that was very rude of me!

  • Sakura: B-but....as a p-princess...it is my duty to look after our people.
  • Jakob: Milady, please forgive me for what I'm about to say... But you cannot heal everyone no matter how hard you try.
  • Sakura: I-I know... Even if I heal them, I can't save them.
  • Jakob: I'm glad you realize that.
  • Sakura: The truth is...I'm just selfish! I feel guilty every time I see someone in pain. I pretend I'm doing all this for the people, but I'm just doing it to ease my guilt.
  • Jakob: You shouldn't be so hard o yourself.
  • Sakura: If you'll excuse me...I'd like to be alone.

  • Jakob: Who are you trying to help—your siblings, the soldiers, every last citizen of Hoshido?
  • Sakura: I want to help everyone! I know it will be difficult..but I can't bear all the suffering!
  • Jakob: Milady, even a skilled healer like yourself cannot save everyone. If you continue to try—studying around the clock—you'll only work yourself to death. Help some. Help as many as you can, but stop trying to help everyone.
  • Sakura: B-but it has to be everyone! How could I pick and choose?
  • Jakob: I should have chosen my words more carefully. I'm sorry I upset you.
  • Sakura: No, forgive me. I shouldn't have yelled like that.
  • Jakob: You care about helping people. You shouldn't apologize. We need that passion. You are walking a difficult road, but I am on your side. If there is anything I can do, please tell me. i would do anything for you.

  • Jakob: I can't imagine my life without you anymore. Please, do me the honor of being my wife.
  • Sakura: B-but, Jakob, you know that my mission is to heal the hurting. I can't give up now. I don't know if that feeling is ever going to change. I w-won't drag you into this!
  • Jakob: Lady Sakura, I would never ask you to give up your ambition. You face a difficult path. Still, I hope you'll accept this ring. Let us walk that path side by side.
  • Sakura: B-but if we get married... I worry that I will only cause you pain...
  • Jakob: The only pain you'll cause me is if you say no. I am not as skilled as you, but I have some training as a healer. Let me help. We shall walk this hard but noble path together as husband and wife.

  • Jakob: Hey there, Kagero. I'm just on my way to— What in the world is that painting?
  • Kagero: Hello, Jakob... It's just a normal painting. Is something the matter?
  • Jakob: What was your inspiration for this image? I'm having trouble picturing the subject as anything that exists in our reality...
  • Kagero: Doesn't it resemble a cat to you?
  • Jakob: A...a cat? You mean this was supposed to be a painting of a cat?
  • Kagero: Not supposed to be. It is a painting of a cat.
  • Jakob: I don't know about that. If I close one eye and tilt my head to the left..and squint a little...I think I see an older woman, smiling as she sits on a pin cushion.
  • Kagero: That's not at all what I painted. It's odd that you see that.
  • Jakob: It is quite odd indeed.
  • Kagero: I promise you, what I've painted here is a cat.
  • Jakob: A cat with features decidedly unlike any cat I have ever seen.
  • Kagero: ...That's fine. Honestly, I wasn't planning on showing this painting to anyone, anyway.

B Support Edit

  • Kagero: Hmmm... If I just add a touch more of this color, it should be about right...
  • Jakob: Hello, Kagero. What are you... by the gods! I see you're creating another ominous painting today...
  • Kagero: Hello, Jakob.
  • Jakob: What is the subject of this painting?
  • Kagero: Can you not tell from looking at it?
  • Jakob: I apologize. I can't seem to place what I am looking at...
  • Kagero: *sigh* Here I thought I had done a better job of making it clear...
  • Jakob: It's all right! Let me see... Is it an ogre letting out a battle cry?
  • Kagero: It's a cat. Again.
  • Jakob: How could this possibly be considered a cat? I can't see it at all!
  • Kagero: I assure you it is. Look over there. That sleeping cat is what I was trying to paint.
  • Jakob: I don't understand how can look at that cat... And end up painting this.
  • Kagero: I can see the cat quite clearly, though. I think something is off with how you view the world.
  • Jakob: It's your aesthetic sense that's off.
  • Kagero: I will admit you aren't the first person to say that to me.
  • Jakob: I suppose it isn't a bad thing... You can draw whatever you like. Your style has just grown very... unique... as you've practiced.
  • Kagero: Speaking of which... Would you like to help me with my next painting, Jakob? It may improve my paintings if I have someone else involved in the process. You could even create something of your own, too. I've already got all the supplies we would need. We could start right now.
  • Jakob: Really? I've never tried before... But sure, let's give it a shot.
  • Kagero: I can help you out with anything you don't understand; just ask. The basics of painting are second nature to me.
  • Jakob: A-ah, I appreciate any help you can offer...

A Support Edit

  • Jakob: Kagero.
  • Kagero: Hello, Jakob.
  • Jakob: You really do enjoy painting, don't you?
  • Kagero: I do. I find it very relaxing. It helps me center myself, kind of like meditation.
  • Jakob: I see. Was I disrupting that by commenting on the scenes you were painting?
  • Kagero: Not in the least. If anything, it was very helpful to have your feedback on my paintings. I actually look forward to when you come by. It's somewhat rare to get a truly honest opinion out of someone.
  • Jakob: Heh. I really don't see how anyone couldn't have an opinion about your work. It is incredibly unique.
  • Kagero: Can you tell what I'm working on right now?
  • Jakob: Oh, of course! This is easy! It's a cat. It has to be a cat.
  • Kagero: Heh, Alas, this time I am not painting a cat.
  • Jakob: Aw, really? I thought for sure I knew what it was...
  • Kagero: Then... you have no idea at all what I've been working on? I can just tell you if you don't know.
  • Jakob: Wait, let me take a closer look. Hmmm. It looks like... a bald man, his eyes filled with tear, brandishing a whip!
  • Kagero: ... It's you, smiling.
  • Jakob: Th-that's how you'd paint my face?!
  • Kagero: I was so sure I'd gotten this one right. Apparently my confidence wasn't conveyed in my paintbrush.
  • Jakob: But... I don't shave my head! This person doesn't have a strand of hair left!
  • Kagero: I thought I'd observed enough of you when you were my painting companion. I was going to give you this as a gift, but considering how you reacted... it might be better just to get rid of it.
  • Jakob: Tsk... If you're only going to throw it away, I'll take it.
  • Kagero: Are you sure?
  • Jakob: You poured some feeling into this painting; it has special meaning as a result. Plus, it will probably work as a ward against demons. Go ahead and make any finishing touches to it, and then I'll happily take it.
  • Kagero: Heh... All right.

S Support Edit

  • Jakob: Kagero, what do you think of this painting?
  • Kagero: Hmm...
  • Jakob: Just so you know, it isn't a painting of a cat.
  • Kagero: I can see that much. It looks like it's a man and a woman standing side by side.
  • Jakob: That's it exactly.
  • Kagero: I like it. Looking at it makes me feel all warm inside. I can tell the emotions of the artist are contained in the art.
  • Jakob: I'm glad. I was the artist who painted it, after all.
  • Kagero: Really? This is an original of yours?
  • Jakob: Indeed. It was kind of scary doing this when I am absolutely not used to it. But I really needed to express my feelings to you, and this was the perfect way.
  • Kagero: Your feelings? What do you mean?
  • Jakob: I feel like our relationship has really grown as we've worked on painting, don't you? I wanted to capture how you make me feel with this painting.
  • Kagero: ...
  • Jakob: Kagero, I want to be with you.
  • Kagero: Jakob...
  • Jakob: You make me feel so good when we're together. I can't explain think of anyone else I'd rather stand next to through life.
  • Kagero: You mean... The man and the woman in your painting... They're mean to be us, aren't they?
  • Jakob: Y-yes...
  • Kagero: Are you sure you want this, though? I'm a ninja, and I am sworn to Lord Ryoma. If it was needed, I would give my life for him in a heartbeat.
  • Jakob: I completely understand that, though. I wouldn't bat an eye if I needed to give my life to save Lord/Lady Avatar.
  • Kagero: Jakob...
  • Jakob: We were meant to be together, Kagero. What do you say?
  • Kagero: If you are fine with that I just said... Then yes, I will stand by your side.
  • Jakob: I couldn't ask for more.

With Setsuna Edit

C Support Edit

  • Setsuna: *sigh* I’ve fallen into a pit… again.
  • Jakob: Hah, it looks like you’re having fun in there, Setsuna.
  • Setsuna: Hi, Jakob... Does this really look that fun to you? I wasn’t sure. But if you think so…
  • Jakob: From where I’m standing, it’s plenty funny, anyway.
  • Setsuna: Funny things are entertaining… Entertainment is fun… As I think about it, I feel like I’m starting to enjoy myself…
  • Jakob: Hah. You should stay in that hole, then. No one is going to make you get out.
  • Setsuna: Ah, that sounds nice. I think I will stay.
  • Jakob: Listen, give a shout if you think you’re going to starve to death or something. Someone—other than me—will come along and rescue you.
  • Setsuna: OK…
  • Jakob: So long, Setsuna.

(Jakob leaves)

  • Setsuna: Bye, Jakob. *hum* This… isn’t actually as fun as I thought.

B Support Edit

  • Setsuna: Hm... This pit is deeper than others I've fallen into... I don't think I'll be able to get out of this one on my own.
  • Jakob: It's almost impressive how you reliably find pits and traps to fall into. Do you really like being trapped that much?
  • Setsuna: Hi, Jakob... I don't like being trapped, actually. At least, I don't think I do...
  • Jakob: For someone who doesn't like being trapped, you fall into a lot of pits. Either you're very deceptive... or you constantly act without spending time thinking about what you're doing.
  • Setsuna: Are you saying I'm ambitious? Thank you... No one has ever called me that before...
  • Jakob: ...Or maybe you're just a fool.
  • Setsuna: Will you help me out of this trap, Jakob?
  • Jakob: What's that? You don't really like being in these traps?
  • Setsuna: I guess... I don't know. What do you think?
  • Jakob: Personally, I don't care if you stay down there forever. But that's just me.
  • Setsuna: I guess that is one option... I'm getting a little hungry, though. Maybe I should get out of here...
  • Jakob: If you want out, you should use your own strength and climb out.
  • Setsuna: OK, that might work. I think I've got to get a good grip on the edge, and then... Oh noooooooooo...
  • Jakob: I don't know what to say.
  • Setsuna: *sigh* I fell back in. I don't think I can do this on my own...
  • Jakob: That is a really deep hole. You can barely reach the edge when you jump.
  • Setsuna: I'm sorry... Jakob, could you help me?
  • Jakob: Tsk. You're so hopeless.

A Support Edit

  • Jakob: This is unbelievable. How could I fall for such an obvious trap?
  • Setsuna: Hey there, Jakob... What are you doing down there in that pit?
  • Jakob: Who...? Oh. Great. As if things couldn't get any worse, now the lady of falling for traps has arrived.
  • Setsuna: I think I've fallen into this pit before... Are you having fun down there?
  • Jakob: Does it look like I'm having fun? If you think this is at all fun, you've got a decidedly unique view of life.
  • Setsuna: I've been told before that I see things differently than others... I don't know why people keep paying me such a nice compliment...
  • Jakob: ...Whatever, just hurry up and help me get out of this pit.
  • Setsuna: OK. I'll just hop down in there...
  • Jakob: What?! Don't do tha— *sigh* Now we're both down here, with no one to pull us back up!
  • Setsuna: But this way we're not lonely...
  • Jakob: I'm speechless.
  • Setsuna: What should we do now?
  • Jakob: I suppose we've only got one option. Climb up on my shoulders. You should be able to reach the edge by standing there.
  • Setsuna: OK... Here I go.
  • Jakob: Be careful; if you're too heavy, I won't feel bad about dropping you. All right, you're up. Now reach up and pull yourself out.
  • Setsuna: Hey, Jakob...
  • Jakob: What? Can you still not reach?
  • Setsuna: This is... kinda fun...
  • Jakob: No it's not! Your feet are digging into my shoulders! Get OUT!
  • Setsuna: OK... I'll try...
  • Jakob: Ugh... What have I done to deserve this...

S Support Edit

  • Jakob: Setsuna, stop right where you are.
  • Setsuna: Jakob? What's the matter?
  • Jakob: Are you not looking where you're going? There's a huge hole right in front of you.
  • Setsuna: Oh, you're right. I was daydreaming and didn't even notice it...
  • Jakob: That's why you're constantly falling for traps. You've got to be more careful.
  • Setsuna: But... I really enjoy daydreaming... I think of all kinds of neat things when I do it.
  • Jakob: Maybe, but you lose whatever sense of danger you have, too. *sigh* I suppose I have no choice. I'll need to watch over you from now on.
  • Setsuna: What do you mean...?
  • Jakob: It seems like you're constantly daydreaming yourself into trouble. Someone has to keep an eye on you. I suppose that someone can be me.
  • Setsuna: I see... Thank you, Jakob...
  • Jakob: However, I can't watch over you every hour of every day if I'm just your comrade. Obviously that would need to change.
  • Setsuna: How would it change, though?
  • Jakob: Well... It would probably be easiest if we were to get married...
  • Setsuna: What...?
  • Jakob: That way it won't seem at all odd for me to be around you all the time.
  • Setsuna: I suppose that makes sense...but is that a good enough reason to get married?
  • Jakob: I suppose it might not be... To be honest, though, it's not my only reason for suggesting it. It seems that I've fallen for you, Setsuna.
  • Setsuna: You have?
  • Jakob: Indeed. I don't really know how it happened, either... I suppose it's a lot like you and the traps you fall into: I didn't see it coming. There's no logical reason for it, but that could just be how love is.
  • Setsuna: Jakob...
  • Jakob: I'm sorry, I didn't even hear your answer before I started explaining myself.
  • Setsuna: I like you too, Jakob... Even if you, just like me, act without thinking sometimes. I think we should be together.
  • Jakob: Really? I'm so glad to hear that!
  • Setsuna: Remember, though; you said you'd help me stay out of traps... That's going to be pretty hard to do.
  • Jakob: Leave it to me!

With Oboro Edit

C Support Edit

  • Oboro: They say you've been volunteering for mop-up operations left and right. Is that true?
  • Jakob: Pardon? You're...Oboro, right?
  • Oboro: I didn't come here to introduce myself. Answer the question.
  • Jakob: You heard correctly, then.
  • Oboro: I had a bad feeling about you...and it looks like I was right.
  • Jakob: It's clear by your face that you don't care much for me.
  • Oboro: *shrug* People who willingly go on mop-up runs are scum, plain and simple. Getting your jollies by going after troops who've already been beaten is disgusting.
  • Jakob: I take no pleasure in it.
  • Oboro: Doesn't matter. You volunteered, which makes you just as bad. That's why I'm giving you the stink-eye.
  • Jakob: Think what you like. It has no bearing on me one way or another.
  • Oboro: All right, then. Good talk.

B Support Edit

  • Oboro: It's you...
  • Jakob: So you're going yo make that face every time you see me, hmm?
  • Oboro: Probably.
  • Jakob: That's overreacting a little to my decision to volunteer for the mop-up operation, no? Out on the battlefield, you can't always pick and choose your allies.
  • Oboro: Sorry, I hate what I hate. There must be something you despise on that same gut level, right?
  • Jakob: I only have one standard of judgement. There are those that side with Lord/Lady Avatar, and everyone else.
  • Oboro: That's a simplistic way of looking at things.
  • Jakob: Maybe, but that's all that matters to me. Lord/Lady Avatar's enemies are my enemies. His/Her allies are my allies.
  • Oboro: Now explain to me what that has to do with mowing down helpless enemies?
  • Jakob: It has everything to do with it. Is is impossible to truly know an enemy's mind just by looking at them. So long as they're armed, they present a threat to Lord/Lady Avatar. That's why I'm so ruthless in stamping them out, even when they're weak. I don't care if it's underhanded or you're uncomfortable with it. It must be done.
  • Oboro: You care that much about Lord/Lady Avatar?
  • Jakob: Have a care, Oboro.
  • Oboro: Seriously? Why?
  • Jakob: I don't care about your opinion of me. But if you don anything, or fail to, that puts Lord/Lady Avatar at risk... I will consider you his/her enemy and crush you without hesitation.
  • Oboro: Sorry if I gave you the wrong idea. I'd never think of betraying Lord/Lady Avatar.
  • Jakob: Of course not. I just thought it would be good for us both to know where we stand.

A Support Edit

  • Oboro: Jakob.
  • Jakob: You stopped baring your teeth at the sight of me. I'm honored.
  • Oboro: Yeah...I've gotten used to you by now.
  • Jakob: Despite my willingness to take on mop-up operations?
  • Oboro: Stop right there. It's not like I'm mad about that for no reason.
  • Jakob: Oh...?
  • Oboro: I'll never forget the sight of it...the moment those Nohrians killed my family. My parents weren't even fighting back, but the bandits cut them down in front of me.
  • Jakob: Right before your eyes? Were you on your own after that?
  • Oboro: Nah. After my parents died, I got passed off on some relatives at the castle. They were soldiers, and never had children, so they raised me like their own daughter. I figured I'd return the favor by training hard, and now here I am.
  • Jakob: I see...
  • Oboro: It was terrible, what happened, but... I've made my peace with it. I wouldn't have become a soldier if my parents weren't killed. But sometimes I get to thinking... What if the bandits raided some other caravan? Or if they left after looting the wagons, instead of wiping everyone out?
  • Jakob: And that's what comes to mind now when you think of mop-up operations, hmm? That's why you hate those who willingly perform these duties.
  • Oboro: Look. I know the enemy is the enemy, and sometimes you have to be merciless. But still...
  • Jakob: Nobody has a perfect heart.
  • Oboro: Come again?
  • Jakob: Hate all you like. You have better reasons than most.
  • Oboro: Jakob...
  • Jakob: If you take it too far, mind you, I'll put a stop to it. But so long as you're Lord/Lady Avatar's ally, you are my ally as well.
  • Oboro: Thanks...I think. I already considered you an ally anyway.
  • Jakob: That's your prerogative.

S Support Edit

  • Jakob: I need a promise from you, Oboro.
  • Oboro: Hello to you too, Jakob. Is this how you start all your conversations?
  • Jakob: Just listen. It's important.
  • Oboro: So what do I need to promise?
  • Jakob: That you'll never betray Lord/Lady Avatar.
  • Oboro: Oh, come on...
  • Jakob: Promise me.
  • Oboro: Where is this coming from? Do you really think I'd betray Lord/Lady Avatar?
  • Jakob: No. If I did, this encounter would be going very differently.
  • Oboro: Then don't ask such silly questions! I'd never backstab Lord/Lady Avatar!
  • Jakob: You're right, of course. I just wanted to be absolutely sure.
  • Oboro: Is this a thing you're doing now? Going around and making everyone promise?
  • Jakob: No. I was only interested in your response. Because out of everyone here...I could never bring myself to fight you...
  • Oboro: What are you getting at?
  • Jakob: It seems that...I've fallen for you, Oboro.
  • Oboro: What?!
  • Jakob: I had hoped that one day we might be...married...
  • Oboro: Y-you want to marry me? This is the first I knew you were interested at all! What brought this on?
  • Jakob: I like to think that I'm a good judge of character. I'm confident I understand your charms better than anyone else.
  • Oboro: I...I'm flattered, but...
  • Jakob: And now that you've promised never to betray Lord/Lady Avatar... I can feel comfortable proposing to you.
  • Oboro: I...see...
  • Jakob: Please marry me, Oboro. I'd like to start a family of our own.
  • Oboro: A new family... That's the greatest thing anyone has ever suggested to me. I'll do it, Jakob. I'll marry you.
  • Jakob: I'll be counting the days to the ceremony.
  • Oboro: But I need a promise from you too first.
  • Jakob: Name it.
  • Oboro: You can't die. I won't be left alone again.
  • Jakob: Oh, my dear Oboro...I'd never do that to you. I promise to always stay by your side and ensure that your days are happy ones.

With Hana Edit

C Support Edit

  • Hana: Hey there, Jakob!
  • Jakob: Hello, Hana. On your way to train some more?
  • Hana: I am! Did you want to join me
  • Jakob: No, thank you. Unlike some people I know, I do not have any time to spare.
  • Hana: I don't have a lot of free time either! I just make a point of setting some time aside to train, when I can.
  • Jakob: I don't particularly care how you choose to spend your time.
  • Hana: You know, Jakob, I'm not sure anyone has ever mentioned this to you... But you're pretty rude.
  • Jakob: I've heard that; It's usually coming from people not worth my time.
  • Hana: Oooh, I see. It's not just that you're rude. You're rotten, through and through. *sigh* Whatever. There are better uses for my time than having this conversation with you. I need to continue improving myself to better protect Sakura.
  • Jakob: You give your free time for the benefit of someone else?
  • Hana: Of course. And she gets more than just my free time. If needed, I would lay down my life to protect her.
  • Jakob: Interesting...

B SupportEdit

  • Hana: Hai-yah! Ha! Heeeeyah!
  • Jakob: Ah, that explains the noise. I though for a moment that a boar had become ensnared.
  • Hana: *sigh* Still incredibly rude, I see.
  • Jakob: I found one must address a simpleton on his or her level in order to be understood.
  • Hana: That cuts both ways, I think.
  • Jakob: Speaking of cuts, I see you're out training again...
  • Hana: Of course. I always have to be pushing myself, or I'll never improve.
  • Jakob: You do this for Princess Sakura?
  • Hana: Yes. I must be as strong as possible if I hope to properly protect Sakura.
  • Jakob: It's amusing that you push yourself this hard for another person.
  • Hana: You really think so? I suspect you know a thing or two about devotion. You and I are more alike than you'd like to admit.
  • Jakob: You must be joking. What could make you think we are at all alike?
  • Hana: You'd do anything for Lord/Lady Avatar, wouldn't you?
  • Jakob: Of course. It's an insult to suggest otherwise.
  • Hana: Then, just like that, I've shown that we are alike. You and Lord/Lady Avatar are exactly like me and Sakura.
  • Jakob: Hrm. I find it incredibly annoying that there is truth in the words you speak.
  • Hana: Hah, I knew it!
  • Jakob: That self-satisfied look on your face is bothersome. Return to your training.
  • Hana: Oh no, I have to stop verbally sparring with you? Say it isn't so!

A Support Edit

  • Hana: Yaaaa!
  • Jakob: It’s kind of amazing how you never seem to tire from training so often.
  • Hana: Oh, hello, Jakob.
  • Jakob: With all the time you spend training and honing your katana skills… You’ve seen improvement, right?
  • Hana: Of course! I know that I’ve grown much stronger than I used to be. But there is always room to get better.
  • Jakob: Hrmph, that’s no surprise. There’s a limit to how much you can learn on your own.
  • Hana: Yeah, you’re probably right.
  • Jakob: In that case, I will be your opponent in the future.
  • Hana: Excuse me? You’re going to spar with me?
  • Jakob: What’s with that look? Do you have a problem training with me?
  • Hana: No, I’m just surprised that you’re offering to help me…
  • Jakob: Help you? Don’t be foolish. I’m offering to spar with you for my own reasons. Specifically, so that I can become stronger and better protect Lord/Lady Avatar.
  • Hana: Ahhh, that sounds much more like something you’d say. I will, however, take back what I said about you before. You’re not rotten to the core. Your core may actually be all right.
  • Jakob: You’re only just now realizing this? You really are a bit slow… But enough chatter! Let’s get started. I won’t be holding back.
  • Hana: I wouldn’t want you to! Come at me with all you got!

S Support Edit

  • Jakob: Hana, come join me for a sparring session or two.
  • Hana: Oh, hello, Jakob. Sure, that sounds all right with me. Unusual for you to be the one starting us off, though.
  • Jakob: I've realized that I need to redouble my efforts at becoming stronger.
  • Hana: Why is that?
  • Jakob: Because the number of people I want to protect has doubled.
  • Hana: Oh? Someone in addition to Lord/Lady Avatar?
  • Jakob: Indeed.
  • Hana: So, who's the lucky person?
  • Jakob: You, actually.
  • Hana: Who's Yew? Did they join our group recently?
  • Jakob: *sigh* Y. O. U. I'm talking about you!
  • Hana: Oh, OH! Oh...
  • Jakob: I don't even know what to say. Regardless, I want to protect you as well as Lord/Lady Avatar.
  • Hana: But... why would you want to do that?
  • Jakob: It must be obvious: it's because I'm in love with you.
  • Hana: I don't know what to say. I'm so surprised...
  • Jakob: What is so surprising? I think you can understand wanting to protect someone.
  • Hana: No, I absolutely get that part. I'm having trouble with you pointing at me and saying to lo... lov... the L word.
  • Jakob: Love. I'm talking about loving you. I want us to be together, Hana. I want it with all my heart.
  • Hana: Are you sure? I mean, you aren't just saying this to find out how I feel, are you?
  • Jakob: How you feel? What do you mean?
  • Hana: You're rough around the edges, and you can be rude sometimes... And yet I find myself caring about you very much. I think as much as you say you care about me.
  • Jakob: Then... you love me as well? We can be together?
  • Hana: Yes, Jakob! Of course!

With Orochi Edit

C Support Edit

  • Orochi: Why, if it isn't Jakob! Your timing is impeccable.
  • Jakob: What can I help you with, Orochi?
  • Orochi: Nothing much. Simply bored. But I do wonder... Would you mind if I told your fortune? You know, just for fun?
  • Jakob: A bit of fortune-telling? I must admit that I'm curious.
  • Orochi: It will take me only a moment to commune with the future.
  • Orochi: ......
  • Orochi: Ah, done.
  • Jakob: Well then, let's hear it. Come on. I don't have all day, Orochi.
  • Orochi: I've found out...that your personality is lacking.
  • Jakob: My personality—
  • Orochi: Is lacking, yes.
  • Jakob: That's not a fortune. That's just slander and nonsense.
  • Orochi: Hehe. It has the ring of truth to me. With that, I conclude my communion with the higher truths of the future.
  • Jakob: What would provoke you to pounce upon me like this, Orochi? It's hardly becoming of you.

B Support Edit

  • Orochi: Why, if it isn't Jakob! Your timing is impeccable.
  • Jakob: I'm not falling for this again, Orochi. No more slanderous fortunes.
  • Orochi: Oh? You knew just what I've come for. So you can tell the future too? Ha! I only jest. I know you're blind to such things, Jakob.
  • Jakob: Yes, my dear. You just keep laughing. You're only making a mockery of yourself. Off with you, scamp!
  • Orochi: I'm being genuine. I'd like to tell your fortune—to make up for last time.
  • Jakob: I said OFF with you!
  • Orochi: Does that seem wise? It's about the future of you and your master, after all.
  • Jakob: About me and Lord/Lady Avatar?
  • Orochi: But I'll be off—you've said it twice. No need for thrice.
  • Jakob: Wait. I said only for you to go, not that I didn't want to know!
  • Orochi: That sounds paradoxical. Please be clear. Shall I tell you your fortune or not?
  • Jakob: I beg of you, Orochi. Tell me what you've learned. You mustn't go until you do!
  • Orochi: Well then, let's prepare.
  • Jakob: Didn't you say you'd already seen the future of me and my master?
  • Orochi: I did. But it was foggy, and I need materials to make it clearer. I'll need some specific herbs for my incantation. Then and only then can I—
  • Jakob: Yes, yes. Give me your shopping list.
  • Orochi: My list, sir. Here you go.
  • Jakob: I'll go fetch these herbs, Orochi. Immediately, posthaste!

A Support Edit

  • Jakob: I found those fortune-telling herbs for you, Orochi.
  • Orochi: It must have been a nightmare getting these, Jakob. I happen to know these herbs grow only on crumbly cliffs.
  • Jakob: I scuffed a nail, that's all. And perhaps sprained an ankle. But never mind that. You've got your herbs. Please, now! Tell me what lies in the future for me and Lord/Lady Avatar.
  • Orochi: Take a seat, Jakob.
  • Jakob: Yes, of course.
  • Orochi: ...... Oh, my! What's this?!
  • Jakob: Out with it!
  • Orochi: ......
  • Jakob: Must I plead? Say it.
  • Orochi: Do you truly want to hear...this?
  • Jakob: I didn't scale those treacherous cliffs for nothing, Orochi.
  • Orochi: Swear to me that, no matter what I may say, you won't get angry?
  • Jakob: Wh-what? Why?
  • Orochi: Just swear it, that's all.
  • Jakob: I won't swear any such thing. Just tell me NOW.
  • Orochi: Very well. What lies in your future is... That is, what lies in the future for you and Lord/Lady Avatar is...
  • Jakob: Wait.
  • Orochi: I'm sorry. The prediction must be said! The future cannot be silenced now!
  • Jakob: I command you—say nothing! Augh!
  • (Jakob leaves)
  • Orochi: Huh? Where'd he go? Heh. And here I hadn't actually seen the future yet. My, my, my—I guess my theatrics scared off the little dear.
  • (Jakob returns)
  • Jakob: Caught you.
  • Orochi: Uh, wait. I can explain.
  • Jakob: Explain...theatrics? Don't bother. I call an end to these high jinks.
  • Orochi: S-sorry, Jakob.

S Support Edit

  • Jakob: I've been troubled by something, Orochi. Can you—or can you not—tell fortunes?
  • Orochi: Of course I can. But I can see why you'd doubt me. I've played a prank or two on you.
  • Jakob: Indeed you have.
  • Orochi: Still, please don't doubt my power to see the future. It may prove useful.
  • Jakob: I hope you'd say that. I desperately need my fortune told, Orochi.
  • Orochi: I swear that I'll do right by you this time, Jakob. No pranks. What do you need to know? Name it.
  • Jakob: I want to know who I will marry.
  • Orochi: ......
  • Jakob: Are you...looking into it?
  • Orochi: Ah. That wasn't my seeing-the-future face. It's my sorry-but-no face.
  • Jakob: But you promised, Orochi. Must you eternally toy with me?
  • Orochi: You don't understand.
  • Jakob: I understand that you keep promising me the future, then denying me the satisfaction.
  • Orochi: Well, if I must—I'll tell you. Who will your wife be?
  • Jakob: Once and for all, yes!
  • Orochi: ...... Your wife will be... What? No, it can't be!
  • Jakob: Who is it? Pardon my excitement. I meant, of course, whom.
  • Orochi: It's me.
  • Jakon: Ah. What a relief.
  • Orochi: A relief?! Didn't you hear what I said?! It's ME.
  • Jakob: Please, your exclamations are hurting my ears, Orochi. All is well. That is, all will be well...after you accept this.
  • Orochi: A ring?!
  • Jakob: Hello, Wife. Will you please take this from me?
  • Orochi: ......
  • Jakob: Is that your seeing-the-future face or your I-accept-happily face?
  • Orochi: Neither! Both! Neither! I'm sorry. This is just so unbelievable. You want to marry me?
  • Jakob: Did you—or did you not—say that you could tell the future?
  • Orochi: I did, but as for whether I will say "I do"... That's my choice. First I need to know why you wish to marry me!
  • Jakob: Your prankishness is charming. Who can say why I'd swoon for such foolishness? Love is whimsy.
  • Orochi: Truer words have never been spoken. I feel just the same.
  • Jakob: About love—or about me? Honestly, I don't think I've heard your answer yet!
  • Orochi: Well, the cards have spoken. The tea leaves have been read. The horoscopes have been... horoscoped. They all say that I must marry you. But I will not do what my fortunes say—I'll live alone first!
  • Jakob: Then dash the cards and the tea leaves. What do YOU say? Please. I beg on bent knee. I need you and your pranks—'til the day I die!
  • Orochi: Aha. That's the proposal I wanted. In that case, I do. Now give me that darn ring.

With Rinkah Edit

C Support Edit

  • Jakob: Ah! If it isn't the famous Rinkah, the Fire Tribe's frostiest daughter!
  • Rinkah: If you don't need anything, then go away.
  • Jakob: It's my business where I decide to spend my time. I don't recall anyone making you my superior officer.
  • Rinkah: Uh-huh. You talk awfully big for a lapdog.
  • Jakob: Did you just call me a lapdog?
  • Rinkah: So what if I did?
  • Jakob: No matter. I refuse to waste my energy trading childish insults with you. Good day, Rinkah.
  • Rinkah: That was too easy... I don't like this.

B Support Edit

  • Jakob: Marvelous! Absolutely delectable!
  • Rinkah: ...
  • Jakob: Mmm! Oh, yes! Quite so! I must say, I've truly outdone myself this time.
  • Rinkah: ...
  • Jakob: This might be the best tea this side of the continent!
  • Rinkah: You're annoying me.
  • Jakob: Pardon? Did you say something, my sweet?
  • Rinkah: I SAID that you're ANNOYING me! You've been banging on about that tea for an hour now! Hasn't it gotten cold?!
  • Jakob: Of course! And yet even still, it is abrosial! But when should I be quieter for you? It's not my problem you're annoyed. All you have to do is ignore me, after all.
  • Rinkah: If you want to talk to yourself so badly, go do it somewhere else!
  • Jakob: It's my business where I talk to myself. If you don't like it, perhaps you should go somewhere else.
  • Rinkah: I was here first!
  • Jakob: Hm. This is strange. I thought your clan encouraged aloofness and independence. So why are you talking to me so much? I must be more charming than I'd thought!
  • Rinkah: Are you making fun of me?
  • Jakob: I thought that much was obvious. Perhaps I should be less subtle in the future.
  • Rinkah: I won't stand for this! Insult me again, and I'll beat you to a bloody pulp! Do you hear me?
  • Jakob: Now, now. Calm down. Here, have some tea.
  • Rinkah: Grrrrrrrrrr.
  • Jakob: You should really learn to control that temper of yours. It will be difficult for you to remain aloof if you let little things like this bother you.
  • Rinkah: Sh-shut up! I don't want to hear about it! Least of all from you.
  • Jakob: Hold! Don't do anything rash, now. How would your tribe look if their princess began assaulting her comrades over trifles?
  • Rinkah: I...will...kill...
  • Jakob: Ah-ah-ah! None of that. Now sit and take this tea!
  • Rinkah: ... *gulp* Th-this is actually pretty good.
  • Jakob: Of course it is. I made it, after all.

A Support Edit

  • Jakob: Rinkah.
  • Rinkah: Butler.
  • Jakob: You must have it so hard.
  • Rinkah: Um. What?
  • Jakob: It would be too much for me, staying aloof among so many annoying people...
  • Rinkah: Heh. You know that you're one of those annoying people, right?
  • Jakob: Me? Annoying? I am scandalized by the accusation.
  • Rinkah: Uh-huh. So, what did you want? Why are you here?
  • Jakob: Well, you don't waste any time on pleasantries, do you?
  • Rinkah: Heh. Everyone here's always so eager to get to know each other. It can be difficult finding time to be alone.
  • Jakob: Yes, I imagine it must be trying for you.
  • Rinkah: Trying? No, I don't find it so. It's often very pleasant.
  • Jakob: Oh?
  • Rinkah: It's true, my tribe shuns most interaction with the outside world. But that doesn't mean we don't enjoy being around others.
  • Jakob: Really?
  • Rinkah: We just prefer solitude to idle chatter and empty relationships. If a friendship runs deep, we don't oppose its development.
  • Jakob: I see. That is very wise. Were only the whole world like that.
  • Rinkah: Truly. But thankfully, few people here seem to approach friendships superficially. So, contrary to how it might appear, I actually enjoy the company.
  • Jakob: I see. I'm glad to hear it. Does this mean I might consider you a friend?
  • Rinkah: Heh. Perhaps.

(Rinkah leaves)

  • Jakob: Haha. What a charming woman.

S Support Edit

  • Jakob: Rinkah? You're coming to see me this time? What's going on? Are you ill?
  • Rinkah: No. There's something I wanted to talk with you about.
  • Jakob: Oh? What is it?
  • Rinkah: Do you have feelings for any of the women in camp?
  • Jakob: Wh-what? Why do you want to know?
  • Rinkah: Just answer the question.
  • Jakob: Ah...yes. There is one I have feelings for.
  • Rinkah: I see. So you're taken, then?
  • Jakob: No. She isn't aware of my feelings for her. To tell you the truth, I belived she would never return them. She is quite...aloof.
  • Rinkah: Aloof, huh? So you like the hard-to-get type?
  • Jakob: Not particularly. But there is something special about her. I admire her strength, I think. She is a fiercely independent woman.
  • Rinkah: I see. You may want to consider sharing these feelings with her. I'm sure she would be flattered.
  • Jakob: Perhaps, perhaps. But while we're swapping secrets, I have a question for you. Do you have your eyes on any of the men we serve with?
  • Rinkah: What?! Th-that's preposterous!
  • Jakob: I see I've hit a nerve. Tell me, does he make the most delicious tea you've ever had?
  • Rinkah: What are you trying to say, you-- you--
  • Jakob: I thought as much. I will have to think on this.
  • Rinkah: Think on WHAT, exactly?!
  • Jakob: Whether or not to become a member of the Flame Tribe, of course. How else would I be able to someday marry the woman I love?
  • Rinkah: You mean...
  • Jakob: Oh, don't be coy. I think we both know what I'm talking about. It is nice to finally be able to admit it, though.
  • Rinkah: You idiot! You spoiled it! You didn't even let me tell you myself yet!
  • Jakob: O-oh, my. You mean-- You really-- I was only teasing!
  • Rinkah: WHAT?!
  • Jakob: No, I mean, I was serious about my feelings! I just never thought you could possibly feel the same!
  • Rinkah: Oh, for the love of-- Will you shut up and let me talk already? I love you, Jakob! I love you more than anyone else. And I want you to be mine. There. I said it.
  • Jakob: Rinkah...
  • Rinkah: And there's no need for you to join the Flame Tribe. I know it wouldn't suit you. So...I suppose I'll just have to propose to an outsider. Such things aren't unheard of. But you'd better treat me right, you understand? This is a serious decision.
  • Jakob: Of course, my love. I will serve you always-- I swear it.
  • Rinkah: Heh. Good. So, to celebrate, how about you brew us up some of that famous tea of yours?
  • Jakob: At once, my darling. Anything for you.

With Camilla Edit

C Support Edit

  • Jakob: Good day, Lady Camilla.
  • Camilla: Hello, Jakob. How fortunate to run into you like this. I've been meaning to thank you for all that you do for Avatar.
  • Jakob: Well, thank you very much. It's nice to know that I'm appreci—
  • Camilla: However! I would also like to inform you that your services are no longer needed. You can instead focus your efforts on the other members of our company.
  • Jakob: Excuse me?
  • Camilla: Was I not clear enough? I will be providing for Avatar from this moment forward.
  • Jakob: My dearest Lady Camilla, you needn't burden yourself with such things. I am more than capable of providing for Lord/Lady Avatar on my own.
  • Camilla: Why? So you can keep her/him for yourself? I won't hear of it.
  • Jakob: No, of course not. Pardon my tone, but what has gotten into you? Have I done something wrong?
  • Camilla: Never mind that. Just steer clear of Avatar. Got it?

B Support Edit

  • Camilla: Jakob, did you launder these clothes for Avatar?
  • Jakob: Yes, of course. I carefully hand-washed and folded all of his/her garments. Is there a problem?
  • Camilla: Yes. I told you that I would be handling this sort of thing for Avatar.
  • Jakob: You can't possibly be serious, Lady Camilla. A princess of Nohr, washing dirty laundry? Surely it would be beneath you.
  • Camilla: I'm going to say it one more time. I will take care of everything Avatar needs. All by myself. Got it?
  • Jakob: I'm sorry, but I've been entrusted with this duty. The decision is entirely out of my hands, Lady Camilla.
  • Camilla: Need I remind you? Avatar is my brother/sister! So I call the shots.
  • Jakob: You may be her/his sister, but Avatar is my liege. I'm afraid I can't budge on this.
  • Camilla: Do you even care about Avatar? Because if you did, you'd realize that she/he needs her/his sister more than anyone.
  • Jakob: I know Lord/Lady Avatar well enough to know she/he wouldn't want to burden you.
  • Camilla: I command you to listen to me! I will take care of Avatar!
  • Jakob: My sincerest apologies, but I only take orders from Lord/Lady Avatar. As such, I will continue to serve Lord/Lady Avatar as I always have. Good day.
  • Camilla: This is unbelievable...

A Support Edit

  • Camilla: Jakob, do you have a moment? I feel I must apologize for the other day.
  • Jakob: Apology accepted, Lady Camilla.
  • Camilla: You're quite loyal to Avatar, aren't you?
  • Jakob: Indeed, I am. Lord/ Lady Avatar gave me a home when nobody else would. I will happily serve him/her until my dying day.
  • Camilla: I thought I was the only one who felt that strongly about Avatar...
  • Jakob: Certainly not. But I do envy the bond that the two of you share as siblings
  • Camilla: Well. I suppose there's no reason for us to be fighting like this.
  • Jakob: I agree wholeheartedly.
  • Camilla: And yet I've been so awful to you. Once again, I must apologize, Jakob.
  • Jakob: I should also apologize for my tone. Nobody likes an obsequious butler.
  • Camilla: Let's stop competing over Avatar and focus on protecting him/her.
  • Jakob: Agreed. I will protect him/her even at the cost of my own life.

S Support Edit

  • Jakob: Ugh...
  • Camilla: Jakob? What's the matter?
  • Jakob: Oh, hello, Lady Camilla. I'm so ashamed.
  • Camilla: Of what? It can't possibly be that bad.
  • Jakob: Oh, it's bad. For the first time in my life...I feel angry with Lord/Lady Avatar.
  • Camilla: Hmm. That is bad. But why?
  • Jakob: Perhaps angry isn't the right word. I am envious. Envious of his/her relationship with you.
  • Camilla: I...I'm not sure I follow.
  • Jakob: I know this is wrong. But I can't hide my true feelings any longer.
  • Camilla: What are you even talking about?
  • Jakob: Don't play coy with me, Lady Camilla. I've seen my passion reflected in your eyes. Marry me.
  • Camilla: How...why...what?!
  • Jakob: Do you deny that you have feelings for me as well?
  • Camilla: I don't know how you did it, Jakob... But you have read my mind. I do feel the same way. However, I am a princess, and you are a butler. I'm not sure this will work.
  • Jakob: We're two very capable people. We can make anything work, can't we?
  • Camilla: Ha! Well, I suppose that's true. There's just one thing. A condition you must abide by if you wish to marry me.
  • Jakob: Name it.
  • Camilla: We are at war, Jakob. We face a harsh reality. If at any time you are forced to choose between me and Avatar... You must choose Avatar without a second thought.
  • Jakob: But... You're right. As you wish.
  • Camilla: There's a good butler...
  • Jakob: Of course you realize that I must ask the same of you. If it ever comes down to Lord/Lady Avatar or me...
  • Camilla: I would protect Avatar, even at the cost of your life.
  • Jakob: I feel strangely...good...about this arrangement.
  • Camilla: As do I. Jakob, I will gladly marry you. If there is happiness to be found in this cruel world, surely we can find it together. Let our mutual love of Avatar bind us together.
  • Jakob: Thank you, Lady Camilla.

With Elise Edit

C Support Edit

  • Elise: Jakob! Hi!
  • Jakob: Milady. I'm glad to see you're in such high spirits today.
  • Elise: Thanks! Say, do you have some time to play with me?
  • Jakob: Play what?
  • Elise: Hide-and-seek, of course!
  • Jakob: ...I must admit, I'm a bit surprised to hear you suggest a game like that. I thought you had long outgrown such childish pastimes.
  • Elise: Well, sometimes it's god to get in touch with your inner child! Like now! OK, I'm gonna hide, and you try to find me! Heeheehee. You don't stand a chance!
  • Jakob: ...
  • Elise: Um... You're going to come look for me, aren't you?
  • Jakob: I'm sorry, milady. I'm afraid I'm far too old for a game like hide-and-seek.
  • Elise: Aw, c'mon! Then what WILL you play with me?
  • Jakob: Hmm... How about a game of chess? Just set up the pieces, and I'll come join you.
  • Elise: OK, will do! See ya soon!
  • Jakob: ...Now that she's gone, perhaps I can finally get some work done.

B Support Edit

  • Elise: Jakob! Wanna play something with me?
  • Jakob: I would be honored. You know where to find the chessboard, so--
  • Elise: Oh no! I am NOT falling for that one again! Last time you wanted to play chess, I got it all set up and you never showed! I waited for you for hours before I got fed up and just played a game by myself.
  • Jakob: Truly? Then I bet the practice has made you a better player already. Perhaps this time you will stand a chance of beating me!
  • Elise: No! I don't wanna play chess! Let's do something else!
  • Jakob: I apologize, milady, but I'm afraid I don't know any other games you might like.
  • Elise: Then...let's go on a trip! There's a beautiful field of flowers not far from here.
  • Jakob: Ah, but I am far too old to be going out to visit flowers. Curse my aching bones...
  • Elise: Oh no. You're not getting out of this one! C'mon! Let's GO!
  • Jakob: *sigh* Very well.
  • (Transition)
  • Elise: So, let's see... I put this one around this, and then I slide the next one in here?
  • Jakob: Hm? Is that a wreath?
  • Elise: Yep! It's been a while since I made on though, so it's not going as well as I'd hoped.
  • Jakob: I see. Well, this was fun. I'll be off, then. Duty calls.
  • Elise: What?! We just got here!
  • Jakob: You've found a way to entertain yourself without me, so i see no reason to remain.
  • Elise: You have to stay!
  • Jakob: ...As you wish, milady.
  • Elise: It will only be a sec. I've just got to finish your gift!
  • Jakob: My gift?
  • Elise: Yep! Call it a token of appreciation for spending time with me.
  • Jakob: I see. Then I suppose I'll have to make a garland for you as well, milady.
  • Elise: Really? You will?
  • Jakob: Yes. Though I should warn you, mine will be quite beautiful. It will likely put your little attempt over there to shame.
  • Elise: Heehee, no way! I'm just getting started!

A Support Edit

  • Elise: Jakob! Do you have some time to play with me today?
  • Jakob: I'm sorry, milady. My to-do list is rather full at the moment.
  • Elise: Then... can I follow you around until you finish your work
  • Jakob: Lady Elise... A princess should try to show a bit more consideration for others' needs.
  • Elise: Oh, OK. I'm sorry, Jakob.
  • Jakob: Please don't apologize. It's part of my job to help mold you into a model princess.
  • Elise: I guess so... And besides...
  • Jakob: Something on your mind?
  • Elise: Well, I know what we're facing. I know I shouldn't waste time playing around. And I especially shouldn't be wasting anyone else's time. Everyday, people are hurt or killed. There isn't time for us to just relax and have fun. But I can't help but want to help everyone smile as much as they possibly can. And sometimes I think if we all played just a little bit more then maybe it would be help. I don't know. It just doesn't seem right when nobody looks happy.
  • Jakob: You are the kindest soul I've ever known, milady. ... Very well. We shall play together.
  • Elise: Really?! But what about your to-do list?
  • Jakob: It can wait for the time being. So... how about a game of hide-and-seek?
  • Elise: Yaaay! I'll go hide!

S Support Edit

  • Elise: *sigh*
  • Jakob: Lady Elise, is something the matter?
  • Elise: Do you think I'm too childish for my age?
  • Jakob: Oh, unequivocally.
  • Elise: Jakob! Geez! Would it kill you to pull your punches every now and then?
  • Jakob: I merely answered your question honestly. Now, my question to you is: Why are you worrying about such things?
  • Elise: I don't know. I want people to see me as more of an adult. I'm not a kid anymore... *sigh*
  • Jakob: Temperament and outward appearances aside, you ARE and adult, milady. Truly, you shouldn't worry about it so. Even I see you as a grown lady now.
  • Elise: You do?
  • Jakob: I do. If I didn't, I would not... *ahem* Well... I would not adore you as I do.
  • Elise: You? Adore ME? You mean like...you think I'm adorable? Thanks, but I don't really see what that has to do with being a mature woman.
  • Jakob: Well, you ARE adorable, but that is not quite what I meant. Please, allow me to clarify. What I meant to say is that I love you.
  • Elise: You WHAT?!
  • Jakob: That said... Milady, would you do me the honor of being mine?
  • Elise: I-I...
  • Jakob: Please, Elise. It would make me happier than you could possible imagine.
  • Elise: Oh, Jakob...
  • Jakob: Well? Do you have an answer for me?
  • Elise: Of course! I love you too. I've loved you for so long! Let's be together forever! Jakob... Thanks for seeing me as the adult I am. I wish more people saw me like that. But if only one person does...I'm glad it's you. I love you, Jakob!
  • Jakob: There is no need for thanks. Now will you join me in the flower field, my darling? I would like to make a wreath for you to celebrate the joining of our fates.
  • Elise: Ooh! Ooh! And then I can make one for you too! Teehee! This is going to be the best life ever!

With Effie 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 stoop. 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 Peri Edit

C Support Edit

  • Peri: Ah! It's Jakob!
  • Jakob: Hello, Peri. I didn't think I'd run into you today.
  • Peri: I'm glad you're here. I'm thiiiirsty! Make me some black tea!
  • Jakob: Um, no? If you want tea, you'd best go about getting it yourself.
  • Peri: What?! You can't refuse! You're a butler! All the butlers I've ever run into do exactly what I say.
  • Jakob: Perhaps, but I am not your butler; I serve only Lord/Lady Avatar.
  • Peri: Not fair! Not fair! I don't believe you! Pour me some tea right now!
  • Jakob: Hrmph. There is no chance of that happening.
  • Peri: *sob* Waaaaaaaaaaaaaah! If you don't pour me some tea, I'll... I'll... I'll kill everyone in the area!
  • Jakob: I don't care in the slightest. If you try and go on a killing spree in camp, I'm certain you'll be punished. Banishment at the minimum, but probably execution just to be safe.
  • Peri: Huh?! But I don't wanna be executed! Killing isn't fun when it's happening to me!
  • Jakob: Then I suppose you'll have to abandon your plans for the day. The tea and the murder.
  • Peri: Jakob, you meanie!

B SupportEdit

  • Peri: Ah, it's Jakob... 
  • Jakob: Hello, Peri.
  • Peri: Don't come near me. I hate you!
  • Jakob: Oh, my. Really? That's a shame.
  • Peri: You're always picking on me. And saying mean things... Yeah, I definitely hate, hate, hate you!
  • Jakob: I am getting the vague notion that you dislike me, Peri. 
  • Peri: You're never nice to me! You won't make me tea, and you tell me not to kill people! Killing people is my favorite pastime! 
  • Jakob: I don't dislike you, Peri. 
  • Peri: ... What? What'd you just say?
  • Jakob: I actually consider you a very skilled soldier. You've clearly mastered the art of killing the enemy. 
  • Peri: You... you think so? You aren't just saying that. 
  • Jakob: Of course. I don't indulge in false flattery. When you're tearing a path of destruction across the battlefield... It's a sight to see.
  • Peri: Wow... You really think I'm that amazing? 
  • Jakob: If nothing else, you're valuable to Lord/Lady Avatar in battle. 
  • Peri: I was wrong. I love you, Jakob!
  • Jakob: What? You were just saying you hated me. 
  • Peri: But I love getting compliments! Especially on my killing. You should give me lots more!
  • Jakob: Heh. What a peculiar one you are.

A SupportEdit

  • Peri: Mhm mhm! This is really delicious! 
  • Jakob: Of course it is. It's my own special recipe, after all. 
  • Peri: Thank you, Jakob! 
  • Jakob: It's no trouble. I had a little extra time today is all. 
  • Peri: I'll cook something for you to show my appreciation. 
  • Jakob: You... Can you cook? 
  • Peri: Of course! I'm actually super amazing at it. People are always impressed with how well I can slice up the portions. That's because cutting food and cutting people are basically the same thing! 
  • Jakob: I'm not sure that's entirely true... 
  • Peri: Sure it is! Anyway, I'll make you something extra tasty. Be excited! 
  • Jakob: You're constantly full of surprises, you know that? 
  • Peri: What do you mean? 
  • Jakob: You look like any other ruling-class member, but you fight incredibly well. Then some people think your only skill is killing, but you say you cook well, too... I simply don't know what to make of you. 
  • Peri: I don't think I'm all that strange. I like killing people, I like cooking... I cry, and I get scared. That's just who I am. None of those things are all that unique to me. 
  • Jakob: That's true, I suppose. And all those things are what make you... well, you. I suppose I just need to accept that my first assumptions about you were wrong. 
  • Peri: Good idea! Just accept everything about me and don't complain! 
  • Jakob: Heh. I can try.

S SupportEdit

  • Peri: Quick! Don't think about it, just tell me what you think!
  • Jakob: ... It's delicious. 
  • Peri: Ha! Hooray! Jakob actually complimented my cooking! 
  • Jakob: I'm surprised. You weren't kidding about your cooking skills. 
  • Peri: Hehehe! I bet your opinion of me has changed again, now! 
  • Jakob: Indeed. I must recognize your skill both in cooking and in killing. 
  • Peri: Yay! Another compliment! I gotta go write all these down.
  • Jakob: With cooking this good, you'll make someone quite happy. 
  • Peri: Mhm mhm. I think so too! How about you, Jakob? 
  • Jakob: Wh-what?!
  • Peri: I think we get along great, and you like my cooking... And you should stop me from killing when I shouldn't be killing! Also, I think I love you. So what do you think? I know you feel the same! 
  • Jakob: H-how did you... I didn't expect this. But you're right - I've fallen for you. 
  • Peri: Fallen for me as in you love me? Or that you'd fall over if I asked? 
  • Jakob: That I love you, is what I mean. Even though you kill with almost reckless abandon, there is a goodness to you. A dangerous goodness, of course. But... do you want time to think about it? 
  • Peri: Not at all! 'Cause if I end up marrying you... I just know you'll take good care of me. And you'll do all the cleaning, and all the laundry, and the sewing... And tea! You'll make tea for me whenever I ask for it. Mmm... Yep, I definitely don't need to think on this! 
  • Jakob: You know that, if we got married, I'd be your husband, not your butler, right? 
  • Peri: It's the same thing! And anyway, there are a lot of husbands in the world who do the housework! 
  • Jakob: You might be right.
  • Peri: Don't take it the wrong way, though! I love you, Jakob. I want to be with you because of that. The housework is just an extra perk! And I'll do the cooking, of course. You just need to help out with the rest. 
  • Jakob: I see. That's a relief. 

With Selena Edit

C Support Edit

  • Selena: I'll take this and this and that. Ooh, and that!
  • Jakob: Hello, Selena. Shopping like a maniac again?
  • Selena: J-Jakob! What's that supposed to mean?
  • Jakob: Let's see. How best to put this... What, exactly, are you planning on doing with all of those pots? Are you going to start a shop? Hm?
  • Selena: What am I planning to do with them? How should I know?! Isn't that something you figure out after you've bought them?
  • Jakob: *sigh* No, Selena. If you do that, you'll just waste all your money. Do you see the problem here?
  • Selena: I-I can't help it! They just caught my eye... Besides, it's my money, so it's none of your business what I buy with it!
  • Jakob: That's true. You are free to squander your earnings as you please. But, if I may - how do you plan to carry all of this refuse back with you?
  • Selena: Oh, I hadn't thought of that. Oh, I see! You came over to offer to help me carry them!
  • Jakob: Mm?
  • Selena: Um...thanks. I guess I should apologize. I thought you were a jerk. Looks like I underestimated you.
  • Jakob: No need to thank me. You estimated me perfectly! I'd no intention of helping you. Though I should have known a fool like you would not have planned ahead. In fact, I bet you're so incompetent, you'll never get them all back on your own. Ta-ta!
  • (Jakob leaves)
  • Selena: What?! H-hey! Get back here! Ohhhh. I'll show him!

B Support Edit

  • Selena: Jakob, you jerk! I had a terrible day yesterday, and it's all your fault!
  • Jakob: Oh? What did I do?
  • Selena: I had to carry all of those pots home on my own because of you!
  • Jakob: That isn't my fault. You were the one who chose to buy all those pots.
  • Selena: S-so?! You didn't even try to help! What kind of monster abandons a helpless girl to fend for herself?
  • Jakob: You should have planned better. I never said I would help. Besides, you're far from helpless.
  • Selena: How rude - wait, was that a compliment? Didn't you call me incompetent before?
  • Jakob: I did, but that was only to rile you up. Spite is the most efficient fuel in all the world. I wasn't sure if you'd make it without a little to help you on your way.
  • Selena: Huh?
  • Jakob: *sigh* You're a strong woman. Do you disagree?
  • Selena: No! I am! I am a strong woman! I'm so strong I can't lose to anyone at anything!
  • Jakob: Exactly! Your feats on the battlefield are a sight to behold. Your strength, your speed, your dexterity - all are legendary within the ranks.
  • Selena: R-really?
  • Jakob: Yes. That's why I believed you didn't need my help the other day. I knew you had the strength in you to carry them all on your own.
  • Selena: I-I guess... Wait! No! That's crap! You just left because you're a lazy, inconsiderate dastard!
  • Jakob: Heh. You saw right through me, didn't you? And I was so close...
  • Selena: I was about to thank you, you farrow-gobbling figsnort!
  • Jakob: Yes, yes, get it out of your system. I did mean it, however. About your being strong.
  • Selena: Hmph! Like I believe that! Although that IS very nice of you to say...

A Support Edit

  • Selena: Are you knitting?
  • Jakob: I am. It is but one of the many of a butler's duties.
  • Selena: You're very good at it. I'm almost impressed.
  • Jakob: Thank you very much! For your kind words, I invite you to admire me or my work whenever you like!
  • Selena: I'm not admiring you! Besides, there's nothing to admire. I'm way better at knitting than you are!
  • Jakob: Really, Selena? Must you insist on being the best at everything?
  • Selena: Of course! There's no point in being anything but the best!
  • Jakob: I don't agree at all. But I suppose such thinking is what motivates you to work so hard?
  • Selena: You got it! You can't be the best without putting in the effort!
  • Jakob: Haha. Nicely put. I don't know whether to call you honest or simple, but either way it's very Selena-like.
  • Selena: Wh-what's that supposed to mean? Are you making fun of me again?!
  • Jakob: Not at all. I'm just impressed.
  • Selena: R-really? Then...that's fine, I guess.
  • Jakob: Ah, there we are. I'm done with the knitting. Would you like to take a look?
  • Selena: Amazing! You really are very good.
  • Jakob: That's right - be honest. It's OK to admire me. I can take it.
  • Selena: I told you, I'm not admiring YOU! It's just...I think those baby socks are adorable! And you'd better be damn grateful I'll even say that! Ugh!

(Selena leaves)

  • Jakob: Heh. What an interesting young woman.

S Support Edit

  • Jakob: Selena! I have good news for you! You want to be the best at everything, right?
  • Selena: That's right... What about it?
  • Jakob: Rejoice. You've done it again.
  • Selena: Huh? That's good, I guess, but I have no clue what you're talking about...
  • Jakob: You don't? Then allow me to tell you.
  • Selena: Sure. What have I suddenly become the best at?
  • Jakob: At being loved by me.
  • Selena: ...Oh my gods, I'm in love with an idiot.
  • Jakob: I knew it! You feel the same way! Selena, my darling, marry me!
  • Selena: N-now hold on just a minute there! I'm the best at being loved by you?
  • Jakob: That's correct. Are you not happy? I thought you loved being the best at things.
  • Selena: I do...but I sorta meant I like being the best at, y'know, DOING things. Not the best at having others feel a certain way about me.
  • Jakob: I take your point. Then you are the best at being the woman you are. Which also happens to be the one I love the most! You have taken first place in my heart, Selena. So...will you marry me?
  • Selena: Hang on a minute!
  • Jakob: Y-yes, of course. I apologize.
  • Selena: What did you mean the "best"? Are there others you love? Do you have a second-place love? A third-place one?
  • Jakob: No. You're the only one for me.
  • Selena: So you were just forcing that joke, then? Well it was a bad joke. I want you to try again. To say what you came to say better. No jokes, no lines.
  • Jakob: Very well. Selena...I love you.
  • Selena: Was that so hard? I love you too, Jakob.
  • Jakob: So...you WILL marry me, then?
  • Selena: Give it some time, dear. Now come here. and give me a kiss.
  • Jakob: Y-yes, my love! First kiss, incomiiiing!

With Beruka Edit

C Support Edit

  • Jakob: Beruka. I hear you used to be a hired killer.
  • Beruka: Yes. Do you have a problem with that?
  • Jakob: No, no, quite the opposite. In fact, I have a job for you.
  • Beruka: Is this a joke, I don't like jokers, Jakob.
  • Jakob: It's not a joke. I have some killing I want you to do for me. Will you accepted the job?
  • Beruka: ...I'll hear what you have to say.
  • Jakob: Lately some pesky insects have found their way into our food stores. I want you to kill them. Every last one of them.
  • Beruka: ...
  • Jakob: So? Will you take the job?
  • Beruka: I already told you I don't care for jests. Do not push me any further.
  • Jakob: This is no joke! These pests must be eradicated! Why should it matter, anyway? Killing is killing, whether they're bugs or people. If anything, it should be even easier for you!
  • Beruka: This discussion is over. Good day.

B Support Edit

  • Beruka: ...
  • Jakob: Beruka, well met. Have you changed your mind?
  • Beruka: I have not. Even if I wanted to, I do not know how to kill insects.
  • Jakob: What?
  • Beruka: I only know how to kill people. It was all I ever needed to know.
  • Jakob: Heh. You had a pretty unbalanced education then, didn't you? How'd you manage to grow up without learning how to take care of bugs? Were you raised under a rock?
  • Beruka: No. I was raised in a slum. The people who raised me trained me for one thing, and that alone.
  • Jakob: I see. Interesting.
  • Beruka: If you say so.
  • Jakob: Well, in any case, you can rest easy now. I won't ask you to kill any more bugs. I guess I've no choice but to do my own chores this week. So much for delegation *sigh*
  • Beruka: You mean this task had already been assigned to you? Then why did you ask me to it?
  • Jakob: Isn't that what all your jobs were? Something that someone wanted done but didn't want to do themselves?
  • Beruka: Heh. A fair point. But please: do not try to pawn of your chores on me again.
  • Jakob: As long as you promise not to stick a knife in me for this, it's a deal!
  • Beruka: You need not worry on that account. I will only kill you if the money is good enough. Butlers, however, are rarely important enough to merit that kind of pay. Good day.
  • Jakob: ...

A Support Edit

  • Beruka: ...
  • Jakob: Would it be so terrible for you to look a bit less hostile now and then? That dour look of yours makes it difficult for me to maintain my cheerful demeanor!
  • Beruka: Your what?
  • Jakob: I'm not asking you to smile. Just, perhaps, ease up a little on the glowering?
  • Beruka: I could say the same to you.
  • Jakob: What are you talking about? I always wear a pleasant expression on my face!
  • Beruka: Heh. You're the only one who thinks that.
  • Jakob: Hmph. In any case, did you need something?
  • Beruka: I was scared and thought you could help.
  • Jakob: Oh? And what does someone as skilled as yourself have to be afraid of?
  • Beruka: I feel as if I am changing.
  • Jakob: What do you mean?
  • Beruka: Until recently, my life followed one pattern, repeated endlessly. I would take a job and kill my target. Then I would return, eat, and sleep. I did nothing else. I saw no one else. But here, things are different. I do not know if I will be able to go back to that life. And if I cannot... I do not know who—or what—I will have to become.
  • Jakob: I see. You went from living a solitary life to one very much spent surrounded by others. And you are concerned because it has changed you in ways you don't understand.
  • Beruka: Precisely.
  • Jakob: Well, that's only natural. I think there is only one question to ask then. How much value do you find in your old self?
  • Beruka: What do you mean?
  • Jakob: What I mean is that you must look back on your life and make a judgement. If you don't think your old way of life was valuable, you should rejoice and cast it off. That's all I'm saying. There is no need to fear change. It can be rejuvenating.
  • Beruka: Heh. You are right. It might be best that I trust myself to the flow of things. Thank you, Jakob.
  • Jakob: No need to thank me. I am always glad to be of service.

S Support Edit

  • Jakob: Good day, Beruka!
  • Beruka: Jakob? How are you?
  • Jakob: Huh? You certainly seem more chipper than normal.
  • Beruka: I do? I wonder why that would be.
  • Jakob: Could it be that you're just happy to see me?
  • Beruka: Hmph.
  • Jakob: I'm right, aren't I?
  • Beruka: Well... maybe a little.
  • Jakob: Heh. I knew it! Well, I am delighted to let you know that I'm happy to see you too.
  • Beruka: Oh?
  • Jakob: Yes! And now I would like to put you in an even better mood. Beruka... I love you.
  • Beruka: What?
  • Jakob: That'd odd. You seem angrier, not happier. Maybe I was wrong...
  • Beruka: That is the worst joke I have ever heard. It's not funny at all.
  • Jakob: It's not a joke. I'm serious.
  • Beruka: ...
  • Jakob: Remember how you told me that being here has changed you?
  • Beruka: I do.
  • Jakob: The same goes for me too. As I got to know you, I felt a new emotion grow in me. It was, as you know now, my love for you.
  • Beruka: Jakob...
  • Jakob: Once I realized this, I reflected on my life as it was before I met you. And I realized it had changed for the better. So I accepted this change, Beruka. And now, I am asking you... have you felt anything similar change in your heart?
  • Beruka: ...
  • Jakob: Please. Don't be cruel. If you don't love me, you need only say so.
  • Beruka: Even if I did love you, you must know that I can't change who I am immediately. I will still have trouble being close with others. And I will still not be one to smile often. Even so, do you wish to be mine?
  • Jakob: Of course. We have plenty of time. There's no need to rush change. Just let me stand next to you. I want to be by your side as you enter your new life.
  • Beruka: Well. In that case... In the time we've known each other, you've helped me more than you could ever know. You have been a friend to me and accepted me for who I was when so few seemed to. Jakob... I love you. I love you so, so much.
  • Jakob: And I you, my darling.

With Nyx Edit

C Support Edit

  • Jakob: Hm.
  • Nyx: Do you need something?
  • Jakob: You're Nyx, correct? The woman feared by Hoshidans and Nohrians alike for her monstrous ways?
  • Nyx: Hah.
  • Jakob: I came to see what such evil looks like in person, but... You look like a harmless young woman.
  • Nyx: Sorry to disappoint you.
  • Jakob: Apparently it's true that rumor is more interesting than reality.
  • Nyx: Perhaps. But then... we've only just met. It might be too soon for you to see it. Maybe there is a monster lurking beneath this disarming exterior.
  • Jakob: That would make things more interesting, but I doubt it's true. All I see is someone who has made use of a—perhaps—undeserved reputation. I see no monster here.
  • Nyx: What if I told you that I've looked this same way for decades?
  • Jakob: You're said to be skilled with magic, so that wouldn't surprise me at all.
  • Nyx: You're an interesting fellow.

B Support Edit

  • Nyx: Jakob.
  • Jakob: What? Oh, hello, Nyx. You shouldn't be wandering around by yourself, you know? The enemy could attack at any time.
  • Nyx: Hahaha. Even after telling you of my power, you insist on treating me like I'm helpless.
  • Jakob: It's difficult to see you any other way. Even though I know better.
  • Nyx: I will forever look like this, though, so you'd better get used to it.
  • Jakob: ...
  • Nyx: I have. Just as I have gotten used to people calling me a monster to my face.
  • Jakob: Tsk. Who cares what they say?
  • Nyx: Muahaha. Don't misunderstand me. I could care less what they say. It's actually convenient for me if hey avoid me.
  • Jakob: You...like being treated that way? That doesn't make any sense.
  • Nyx: When I was younger, I did many evil, vile things. I earned the title of monster. As punishment, I was cursed with this form for all my life.
  • Jakob: ...
  • Nyx: But after punishment comes atonement. I must atone for the evils that I did.
  • Jakob: Interesting. But what are these sins you are guilty of committing?
  • Nyx: Hahaha, perhaps some other time.
  • Jakob: That's fine, I suppose... What are you doing to atone for these unnamed sins?
  • Nyx: I refuse to get involved with people, at least no more than in passing. I believe that cutting all ties with people will help me. If I don't, I risk waking the monster inside me once more.
  • Jakob: So...really, you're just punishing yourself on top of your magical punishment. Jeez, in some ways your young appearance is very appropriate for you.
  • Nyx: You may be right about that...
  • Jakob: You should only cast aside those who won't accept you for who you are. Avoiding everyone only punishes you further.
  • Nyx: ...

A Support Edit

  • Jakob: Hey, Nyx.
  • Nyx: Jakob. What is it?
  • Jakob: I still find it difficult to see you as the monster you claim to be. Even if I ignore this magic spell or curse that keeps you from aging... Seeing you fighting on the battlefield supporting your allies against our enemy... It's impossible to see you as a monster. So...it actually makes me angry to see people treat you badly.
  • Nyx: Heh.
  • Jakob: What's that? Are you laughing?
  • Nyx: Of course. I always suspected you were a nice person under that harsh exterior. Thanks for confirming it.
  • Jakob: Tsk. D-don't be stupid! I just can't stand to see young people get picked on.
  • Nyx: Even if these young people are not so young on the inside?
  • Jakob: Yes, even then.
  • Nyx: Interesting... You suffered when you were growing up, didn't you? That's why you can't stand to see people treat me badly, isn't it?
  • Jakob: ...
  • Nyx: I appreciate your kind thoughts, Jakob. But you needn't worry about me. Until the time comes when I can truly forgive myself... I must continue atoning for what I did.
  • Jakob: If you ever need any help, just say so.

S Support Edit

  • Jakob: Nyx, what are your plans when this war has finally come to an end?
  • Nyx: I'll most likely return to the solitary life I lead before. It was comforting to be alone.
  • Jakob: To atone for you sins, right?
  • Nyx: Yes. That's it exactly.
  • Jakob: How long will you continue to seek atonement?
  • Nyx: As long as I have to. Maybe the rest of my life. Maybe forever.
  • Jakob: ...No. No, I won't allow that.
  • Nyx: Hahaha, what? What say do you have in what I d or don't do?
  • Jakob: Only as much as it concerns me, but if you spend the rest of your life alone... I know I'll never be happy.
  • Nyx: What do you mean?
  • Jakob: Jeez, I really have to spell it out for you? I love you!
  • Nyx: ...
  • Jakob: I want us to be together.
  • Nyx: I was right, back when I first met you. You are definitely an interesting fellow. You are serious, though, right?
  • Jakob: Of course I'm being serious! What kind of person would joke about this?
  • Nyx: In that case...I need to tell you about my sins before we go any further... In the past—when I was much younger—I killed a lot of innocent people.
  • Jakob: ...
  • Nyx: Magic came naturally to me, and people where I lived reacted with fear. No one was belt to match my power, and I, filled with all that magical energy...killed, and killed, and killed again. One of the side effects of all the power I used was my body ceasing to age. Basically, I'm cursed to look like this forever.
  • Jakob: I...see. This is where the rumors of you being a monster must have started, then...
  • Nyx: Yes. What I did was horrible; I don't think my quest for atonement will ever end...
  • Jakob: ...
  • Nyx: That's why I can't let you—or anyone—into my life. I can't burden you with that. And I can't risk your life if my power-mad self returns.
  • Jakob: Nyx...I don't care about your past. I'm fine with you trying to set it right. And I don't want you giving up your own happiness while you do so.
  • Nyx: ...
  • Jakob: Knowing everything you've told me, I still love you. Let me be with you. Let me help you.
  • Nyx: Perhaps... Perhaps it would be all right for us to be together.
  • Jakob: Of course it would. And perhaps with us together, you can find peace with your past.
  • Nyx: Thank you, Jakob...

With Charlotte Edit

C Support Edit

  • Charlotte: Oh Jakob!
  • Jakob: Ah, hello, Charlotte. Did you need something from me?
  • Charlotte: Um, I... Well I was just thinking how I'd love to learn how to properly make tea... Would you be willing to teach me?
  • Jakob: I can teach you - it wouldn't be too much trouble.
  • Charlotte: Truly? It's not an inconvenience, is it?
  • Jakob: It is what it is, but you learning how to brew tea correctly is worth the trouble.
  • Charlotte: Oh, thank you so much! Heehee... You really are kind, Jakob. Even if you act cold all the time.
  • Jakob: Heh.
  • Charlotte: Hmmm? Is something the matter?
  • Jakob: No. Well, actually... I'm not certain how to phrase this... I sense deceit when I'm around you.
  • Charlotte: Excuse me? I don't understand...
  • Jakob: It doesn't matter. I honestly don't care who you are trying to deceive.
  • Charlotte: D-deceive, what a terrible... How could you say such a thing?!

B Support Edit

  • Charlotte: Why hello there, Jakob.
  • Jakob: Oh, it's you.
  • Charlotte: Um, I wanted to talk about our conversation the other day...
  • Jakob: Ah, yes. You wanted to learn how to properly brew tea, correct?
  • Charlotte: Yes! Please, teach me all you know! Would it be all right if we got started right away? It's just the two of us here right now, and we've got plenty of time.
  • Jakob: We may as well.
  • Charlotte: Teehee. I really appreciate it, Jakob.
  • Jakob: Hmmm? What's that? It looks like a bee flying around your head...
  • Charlotte: What?! I hate bees!
  • Jakob: It's right behind you.
  • Charlotte: I don't see it! Ahhh! Please, Jakob—take care of it!
  • Jakob: Why don't you deal with it yourself?
  • Charlotte: I...I can't! I'm scared! Bees terrify me.
  • Jakob: Like I care.
  • Charlotte: Please... Oh, would you hurry up and do something, you good-for-nothing butler! If I get stung, I'll make you suffer!
  • Jakob: Hah, just as I thought.
  • Charlotte: Ahhh, um... I mean... Teehee, I was just kidding! Wouldn't it be awful if I actually said that?
  • Jakob: Why do you feel the need to act like someone you aren't? You can stop now—you can't fool me with your little act.
  • Charlotte: Ugh, it seems that's the case...

A Support Edit

  • Jakob: Charlotte.
  • Charlotte: Jakob... I won't bother pretending around you since you already know it's an act.
  • Jakob: It's better that way.
  • Charlotte: I still can't believe you saw through it. I thought it was working.
  • Jakob: It was not. Tell me though, why do you put on such an act? You expend a lot of energy flattering most of the men you encounter.
  • Charlotte: Isn't it obvious? I want to be popular and well liked.
  • Jakob: Heh. That's a pretty simple reason, I guess.
  • Charlotte: Of course. It makes sense, doesn't it? It's certainly better to be popular than not. By acting a little alluring, a little helpless, all the men are suddenly very nice to me.
  • Jakob: That would seem to work on most men. However, I am immune to it.
  • Charlotte: I hate to break it to you, but you aren't the first person I've failed to deceive. It's actually nice to drop the act, though. It can be really tiring. Sometimes I wonder if it was better when I was just direct and didn't hide myself. I may look pretty and sweet, but I'm really strong. It tends to intimidate people, so I hide it.
  • Jakob: I'm sure. And on top of that... I can appreciate the way you flatter the men around you, and why you do it.
  • Charlotte: What? Are you making fun of me?
  • Jakob: Not at all. You've adapted your skills to the world around you. That shows real wisdom. There's no need to stop or feel embarrassed.
  • Charlotte: Heehee... That's a refreshing way of putting it. But it makes sense. It's another weapon I can use to stay alive in this world.
  • Jakob: Exactly.
  • Charlotte: I guess I shouldn't be surprised that someone similar to me would understand.
  • Jakob: Similar? What do you mean?
  • Charlotte: You're exceptionally cold to anyone except your liege, aren't you? Just like me, you adjust your mood to match the people around you.
  • Jakob: ...You and I are nothing alike. I'd prefer you not make such assumptions.

S Support Edit

  • Jakob: Charlotte, I need to speak with you about something.
  • Charlotte: What is it?
  • Jakob: I would appreciate it if you stopped working to become more popular among men.
  • Charlotte: Excuse me? What's this all of the sudden? You were telling me just the other day that I was smart to make my charm a tool.
  • Jakob: I realized that I'd be bothered if you were... more than popular...with another man.
  • Charlotte: Explain yourself, Jakob.
  • Jakob: Charlotte, I've fallen in love with you.
  • Charlotte: What?!
  • Jakob: I think I could see us living a long, happy life together.
  • Charlotte: Hang on just a minute! Don't get so carried away. This seems really sudden...
  • Jakob: It isn't sudden at all, actually. I told you before that I approved of how you live. You were right before; we are alike. It makes sense that I would develop feelings for you. Do you understand?
  • Charlotte: I...I don't know! You say it isn't sudden, but it seems so to me!
  • Jakob: It's simple. I fell for you, and I've told you how I feel. That's all.
  • Charlotte: I-I understand that, but... My head is still spinning...
  • Jakob: There is nothing more I can tell you. You have to decide now.
  • Charlotte: Really? You're so pushy...
  • Jakob: I have to be. I don't believe that any other woman compares to you at all. If I don't act, another man may come along and earn your affection.
  • Charlotte: You are actually nice beneath that cold attitude you put on... OK. But! I have one condition. I'm not going to stop trying to be popular. The more allies I have, the better. But I swear that you're the only person I love.
  • Jakob: Tsk. ...If you must. I suppose I wouldn't be happy if you weren't happy.

With Gunter Edit

C Support Edit

  • Gunter: Hrmph. Still not good enough. This tea barely quenches my thirst. It doesn't even remotely bring me the calm it should.
  • Jakob: Tsk. You'll never fail to find something wrong with what I do, old man. I went out of my way to make this for you because you said you were thirsty.
  • Gunter: I'm only offering you constructive criticism.
  • Jakob: Don't treat me like a child. I don't need your help all the time.
  • Gunter: The state of your tea says otherwise. You should learn to accept the help of others in areas that you can improve upon.
  • Jakob: Why are you always starting these arguments, old man? It's like you want to fight with me.
  • Gunter: You could do with losing that defiant attitude as well. I suppose that is where we'll begin today.
  • Jakob: Wha—?! Are you serious?!
  • Gunter: It is the only way you'll learn to respect your elders.
  • Jakob: Leave me alone, old man! Go make your own tea!

B Support Edit

  • Gunter: Hrm.
  • Jakob: Why are you staring at me like that? Looking to criticize my posture?
  • Gunter: No, I was just remembering the day you first came to the Northern Fortress...
  • Jakob: Pfft, why focus on the past like that? There are much more important things you could be doing with your time.
  • Gunter: Reflecting on the past helps you realize how far you've come. You were a little urchin not even capable of poliching a floor when you first arrived.
  • Jakob: Hey, old man— I was just a little kid, and those floors were huge.
  • Gunter: Despite that, you devoted all your energy to getting better.
  • Jakob: It didn't change anything though, remember?
  • Gunter: ...
  • Jakob: No matter how hard you try, you can't just force someone to learn a skill.
  • Gunter: Indeed. And because of the trouble you had, it was clear you felt very alone.
  • Jakob: Indeed. But then I met Lord/Lady Avatar. He/She decided to take care of me, even though I couldn't do anything properly
  • Gunter: He/She probably saw a bit of him/herself in you, since he/she was also largely alone.
  • Jakob: His/her acceptance made me very happy. I finally felt a sense of belonging... Your training, on the other hand, was a completely different story entirely, old man. Just thinking about it now makes me angry.
  • Gunter: That's because it required an incredible amount of hard work. Turning you into a first rate butler was no easy task.
  • Jakob: Ah ha!
  • Gunter: What? What is it?
  • Jakob: You just called me a first rate butler. You can't take that back.
  • Gunter: Hrm. I will admit that you are as loyal as they come. And you're capable of working hard. I still believe you have a great deal of work to do though.
  • Jakob: You never give any ground, do you?

A Support Edit

  • Gunter: Hello, Jakob.
  • Jakob: Old man. Are you here to lecture me some more? Was the last pot of tea too strong? Are there minor wrinkles in my clothes?
  • Gunter: No, nothing like that. Just... keep protecting Lord/Lady Avatar.
  • Jakob: Obviously. You will never need to remind me of my responsibility. What is this about?
  • Gunter: There's no deeper meaning. Just promise me - no matter what comes - that you will protect Lord/Lady Avatar.
  • Jakob: Of course... What's gotten into you, old man? Don't tell me death is knocking at your door.
  • Gunter: Heh... You know, there are some who can pull off being ill mannered to seem cool... You've never been one of those people.
  • Jakob: Tsh. I'm polite and proper when I need to be. I've never been rude to Lord/Lady Avatar!
  • Gunter: Heh, I suppose that is true... Forget I said anything.
  • Jakob: Hrmph... Are you really all right, though? Speak up if you're not feeling right. It'd be inconvenient for me if you died and left me on my own.
  • Gunter: Don't worry about that. I can't die until you're a proper adult. I wouldn't be able to bear that shame, even in the grave. At your current pace, though, that probably means I'll live forever.
  • Jakob: Hahah. You're clearly well enough to throw jabs my way - I'm not worried now.
  • Gunter: I am. I was looking forward to a break from training you. As it stands, I have a lot of painstaking work in my future.
  • Jakob: You'll never go easy on me, will you, old man?

With Kana (Son) Edit

C Support Edit

  • Kana: Hey, Papa? There's something I wanted to ask you about...
  • Jakob: But of course. What do you require?
  • Kana: It's Mama. She's always treating me like a child.
  • Jakob: This is not unusual. You are her child, after all. And last I checked, you still retained a number of your milk teeth.
  • Kana: I know, I know. I just mean I'm not as much of a child as I used to be. I want to help out with things. But whenever I try, she just tells me to go play with my friends instead.
  • Jakob: I see. You wish for some responsibilities of your own.
  • Kana: Right! I want to show her that she can rely on me. Can you think of any things I could do for her?
  • Jakob: I can think of many things, but you lack the training required. The art of the manservant is a sacred one, requiring years of dedication and service! Without both, I would not be the icon of immaculate professionalism you see now. Only through this training did I become capable of tending to her every need. It also taught me how to make a killer cup of joe.
  • Kana: And doing all that makes her happy?
  • Jakob: Oh yes, I would say so. Or I would hope, at the very least.
  • Kana: Oh...
  • Jakob: Eh? What is it?
  • Kana: You always do that stuff for Mama, right? So that's her normal level of happy. But I want to find ways to make Mama even happier than she normally is!
  • Jakob: Happier than having a perfect attendant? I doubt such a method even exists!
  • Kana: I know! Let's have a contest, Papa!
  • Jakob: A contest?
  • Kana: Yeah! We'll have a contest to see which of us can make Mama happier! Between the two of us, I'm sure we can come up with all sorts of things! Whoever gets thanked the most wins.
  • Jakob: A friendly competition between father and son, hm? Intriguing. Very well, then! I accept!
  • Kana: Really? Yay!
  • Jakob: However, you should understand that I've known your mother since childhood. And so, naturally, I know her better than anyone else. Furthermore, I will do nothing by half measures. Not even for you... Do you hear me, Kana?! Prepare yourself, for the day of judgement is upon you!
  • Kana: That's OK with me, Papa. I'm gonna beat you fair and square!
  • Jakob: Hmph. We shall see.

B Support Edit

  • Kana: Hey, Papa! I've been making a ton of progress on our contest! How about you?
  • Jakob: What? We are only halfway through the contest. Have you no sense of suspense? *sigh* Very well. I suppose I can humor you. Let us see. I have a running tally of the thanks I've received. Here, you may see it.
  • Kana: WOW! That's a lot! You got all of these already?
  • Jakob: Yes. I've not yet done anything special, but it seems my normal duties are appreciated. I did not realize until not just how many thanks she gives me for my work. It is heartening, to say the least.
  • Kana: Hmph. Well, I'm still not gonna lose! Here, see! I recorded mine, too! And the total is...um...
  • Jakob: I-impossible! It's a draw?! How can this be?!
  • Kana: It is? It is! Haha! Kana's gonna beat you big-time, Papa! After all, I don't have to work, so I can spend all day doing things for Mama!
  • Jakob: What a disgrace... Tell me, what manner of witchcraft have you employed to match me?
  • Kana: Mostly I've been trying to help out around the camp! I spend each morning making arrows for the fletchers. Then at lunch I chop the bear meat for the cooks and hand out the food. Oh, and at night I make sure the mounts are all fed and outfitted for the next day. Plus I do a bunch of other little things whenever I have time!
  • Jakob: What?! That's all it took to make her happy? You didn't even make her tea! Hm. But I suppose that IS a lot of work, it its own way... You really have been growing up, haven't you?
  • Kana: Huh?
  • Jakob: Oh, just a thought. It was not so long ago that you were still in your swaddling clothes. And now, all of a sudden, you're making real, important contributions to the army. Perhaps I have been treating you as too much of a child as well.
  • Kana: Heehee. Yeah. I've been working real hard. Soon there'll be nothing I can't do!
  • Jakob: Heh. I believe it. And I bet Avatar is very proud of you.
  • Kana: Mhm! And I'm gonna start working extra hard tomorrow, too! I won't let this end in a draw, Papa!
  • Jakob: Hmph. Neither shall I. Let the best man win!

A support Edit

  • Kana: *grumble*
  • Jakob: Hello, Kana.
  • Kana: Hi, Papa...
  • Jakob: Something the matter? I'd expected you to still be exulting over your little victory the other day. Or has besting your old man already lost its novelty?
  • Kana: Oh, no. I'm still happy about that, I guess. It's just that I was trying to do things for Mama earlier, and she made me stop. She said I should be spending more time playing around with my friends. She still thinks I'm just a kid. Haven't I shown her I can help out with stuff too? Am I messing up? Is she just pretending I'm doing a good job?
  • Jakob: Oh, is that all? I would not worry, were I you. It has nothing to do with the quality of your work. I promise.
  • Kana: Then why doesn't she want me to help with anything?
  • Jakob: Avatar, I think, knows full well you're capable of taking on responsibilities. But it makes her worry. And it makes her feel sad.
  • Kana: Huh? Why?
  • Jakob: She doesn't want you to miss out on your childhood. And she doesn't want to lose her little boy. She's happy to see you're growing up, but she's worried you won't need her anymore. Parents are funny like that.
  • Kana: But...I'm just trying to pull my own weight. I don't get why that would be a bad thing...
  • Jakob: That's all right. I didn't truly understand it myself until I became a parent. I do have a suggestion for you, however, if you will hear it. Continue helping around camp for your mother, but don't work yourself so hard. Take breaks to see your friends and play games and the like. And it wouldn't hurt to spend some quality time with Mama now and then. Think you can handle that?
  • Kana: But...
  • Jakob: Hm? Do you not want to spend time with your mother?
  • Kana: No, that's not it! It's just...I feel like that stuff if for babies.
  • Jakob: No, Kana. It's not for babies. It's for children. And your mother wants you to stay a child for just a little while longer. We both do.
  • Kana: Papa...
  • Jakob: Kana, we both know that you're growing up to be a fine young man. But for now...relax. Enjoy yourself. At least a little bit, here and there. Please. For you mother's sake.
  • Kana: OK... Thanks, Papa. I'll think real hard about everything you've said.
  • Jakob: Good. You know... I think it would be good if you spent the night in with your mother. I'll go talk to her about it now.
  • Kana: Wait! What about you?
  • Jakob: Wha--?! Why would I...?!
  • Kana: I want you to spoil me, too, not just Mama!
  • Jakob: M-me? I don't think I ca--
  • Kana: But, Papa! Don't you think you need to take a break sometimes too? I thought you wanted me and mama to be happy!
  • Jakob: W-well, when you put it like that... OK, fine. I'll stay in tonight as well.
  • Kana: Yaaay!
  • Jakob: Heh. A night in with the family, hm? Perhaps I could get used to this...

With Shigure (Son) Edit

 C Support Edit

  • Jakob: Ah... Shigure. You're painting again?
  • Shigure: Hello, Father. I didn't hear you come in. I'm sorry. I know this is no time for artwork. We are at war, after all.
  • Jakob: It may rouse your comrades' ire, Son. I'm tempted to forbid your painting entirely. But the truth is, you're quite gifted. There's no use in denying it.
  • Shigure: That's very kind of you to say.
  • Jakob: Where is your ambition? Don't you want more than to let these pictures gather dust? In different times, perhaps you could have become a world-famous artist. This easily contented nature of yours really irritates me. I'm afraid that you've left me no choice but to be your producer.
  • Shigure: Father, what do you mean?
  • Jakob: Quiet... I know just what to do... We will hold a solo art exhibition for you!
  • Shigure: A-an exhibition? No, I could never do such a thing. With our troops already on the advance, the timing would never work. The setup alone would be a massive hassle.
  • Jakob: I'm not suggesting we build a museum. We can simply reserve a tent and ask our friends and some villagers to come.
  • Shigure: It seems just vain to reserve a whole tent entirely for personal use.
  • Jakob: This talent isn't yours alone to relish. You must share this gift with the world.
  • Shigure: I don't know...
  • Jakob: You don't understand... Art has the power to give peace of mind--- to heal our very souls. If you're unwilling, I certainly won't force your hand.
  • Shigure: Well... I suppose I could give it a shot. This whole idea makes me a little anxious. But maybe it could be fun...
  • Jakob: Then it's decided. I'll begin the preparations immediately. We shall speak soon, Shigure.
  • Shigure: OK, Father.

B Support Edit

  • Shigure: Hello, Father...
  • Jakob: Hm? Did you need something, Shigure? I'm rather busy.
  • Shigure: Umm, well... You've done so much work to make this exhibition possible... I just wanted to thank you.
  • Jakob: Son, I simply thought of the idea. There's no need to thank me. Besides, why do you think so many people agreed to help with the show? It's because of your extraordinary talent. They can't wait to see the paintings. Really, I haven't done anything special. You're the artist.
  • Shigure: O-oh, I see...
  • Jakob: Hahaha. Shigure. You're shaking like a leaf. Are you feeling nervous about the show?
  • Shigure: Well yes, of course. But mostly I'm worried about my newest painting. It just isn't coming together like I hoped it would.
  • Jakob: Oh? Is this the one you're making especially for the show? Time is running short. I've already made the bulk of the arrangements. I think you may need to hold off on completing that painting.
  • Shigure: No, that's not an option. I have to finish it. Everyone has devoted so much energy to the show. This piece ties all the others together. I have to keep working.
  • Jakob: Hmph. Well, it is your exhibition. Do as you wish. But please, don't push yourself to the brink. This will all be for nothing if you make yourself ill.
  • Shigure: I understand. Thank you, Father. If you'll excuse me, I must return to painting.
  • Jakob: Very well. What has that boy been painting? I can't help but be curious...

A Support Edit

  • Jakob: Shigure's exhibition is finally under way. Time to take a look inside the tent... Well then... It appears as though this soiree is in full swing. We've attracted quite a crowd. People have come from all over to see his art. And from what I've overheard, the work seems to be very popular. Well, I think it's safe to call this a rousing success. Not that I'm terribly surprised. Hmm... Where is Shigure? I haven't seen him here...
  • Shigure: *pant* ... *pant* ...
  • Jakob: Shigure, what happened? Please, don't tell me that you're just now arriving. How could you be late to your own show?
  • Shigure: I apologize, Father. I had to stay up all night to finish the last piece.
  • Jakob: All night? Just to finish a blasted painting?
  • Shigure: Y-yes...
  • Jakob: I truly don't understand you. How can you be such a fool? You have two dozen pieces hanging here. Why is one more painting so important?
  • Shigure: Well I'd promised myself that I would complete it, no matter what. I created it because I'm thankful for everything you've done, Father.
  • Jakob: What's this?! Wait. Is that your mother...and me?
  • Shigure: Yes, it is...
  • Jakob: This is what you've been toiling over?
  • Shigure: My love for you two is beyond measure. You brought me into this world. Without you, I never would have been able to paint. So I wanted to pour those feelings of gratitude into this portrait.
  • Jakob: Shigure... I don't know what to say. Heh. Fine, you win. I concede defeat. You must be feeling clever.
  • Shigure: F-Father... It hurts when you hug me so tightly. Hahaha.
  • Jakob: Shigure, I must admit... It's wonderful to have such a thoughtful son. I'm very proud of you.
  • Shigure: Thank you...
  • Jakob: Oh dear. There's no time to waste! We have to display this painting immediately.
  • Shigure: OK... But now that I think about it, hanging this family portrait is a little embarrassing.
  • Jakob: Maybe a bit. But it's also the finest piece here. It would be absurd to excise it from the exhibition. We have to find the perfect place to display it. Won't you help?
  • Shigure: Of course!

With Dwyer (Son) Edit

C Support Edit

  • Dwyer: This smells wonderful. Now to pour it into the carafe and serve everyone...
  • Jakob: Hello, Dwyer. Did you make coffee too?
  • Dwyer: I did. Let me guess...
  • Jakob: I'll be serving everyone the coffee I painstakingly prepared. You can go ahead and enjoy whatever it is that you brewed.
  • Dwyer: There must be a mistake. I'm going to serve the espresso I made. You know I make coffee better than you. Admit it.
  • Jakob: What?! How dare you hurl that cheeky nonsense at your father!
  • Dwyer: I wasn't trying to talk back or be rude. It's a simple statement of fact.
  • Jakob: That your coffee is superior to mine? You really think that's true? I've got some news for you, Son. That is utter hogwash. Especially considering the fact that you haven't bothered to even try mine yet.
  • Dwyer: There's no need. I can smell it. And I think I'll pass.
  • Jakob: What?!
  • Dwyer: You realize it too, don't you? If you'll pardon me. We wouldn't want my coffee to get any colder, now would we?
  • Jakob: Damn! Much as I hate to admit it, he's right. This time, and ONLY this time, Dwyer made better coffee than me. But, I'll show him. Just you wait and see, Son...

B Support Edit

  • Jakob: Hello, Dwyer. I made you some fresh coffee.
  • Dwyer: Oh, really? Did you see some pigs flying as well?
  • Jakob: How amusing. Listen. The other day, I just so happened to make a mistake. It's a curious and rare occurrence, I assure you. But now it's time to really see who is the coffee king of this castle. You... Or me.
  • Dwyer: Ohh, I understand.
  • Jakob: Now be grateful and drink up. You can even cry on my shoulder after you taste your bitter defeat.
  • Dwyer: The only bitter thing here is this terrible brew. There's no love.
  • Jakob: What do you mean?
  • Dwyer: The cup itself is cold.
  • Jakob: Th-the cup?
  • Dwyer: You didn't even bother to warm up the cup before pouring the coffee, right? That means the hot java cools down the moment it's poured inside.
  • Jakob: I... I can't believe I made such a thoughtless mistake.
  • Dwyer: I'm sorry, Father. But it seems I've won this battle without even taking a sip.
  • Jakob: Grrrrrrrrr. Even competing with my own son, I didn't expect to feel this frustrated. No, I'm just angry because I lost to you. That must be it.
  • Dwyer: While we're on the topic...I've been thinking. I'm confident that I could handle any task as a butler better than you can.
  • Jakob: Is that right? Well, my arrogant boy, what say we step into the practice field? It's been a while since you and I have gone head-to-head. Just know one thing: I won't hold back this time. Now go get your things.
  • Dwyer: W-wait... What does this have to do with combat?
  • Jakob: Silence! It's so I can reclaim my peace of mind, obviously. If you don't want to take a good thrashing, then I'd recommend defending yourself.
  • Dwyer: You're horrible...

A Support Edit

  • Jakob: Good morning, Son. You're looking well today.
  • Dwyer: Aren't you in awfully good spirits...
  • Jakob: Hahaha. Did you enjoy our sparring session the other day? I believe I made my superiority clear.
  • Dwyer: I've never seen you so focused before. A drunken bear would have fought with more dignity than you did...
  • Jakob: Oh, don't be so jealous. I know it must be hard when you can't compete with my striking combat acumen.
  • Dwyer: I'll catch up to you soon enough. Just like how I surpassed you already as a butler...
  • Jakob: Hmph. There you go again. With your cheeky attitude.
  • Dwyer: I have to say, it's been nice spending more time together lately... I'm surprised to admit that I have been enjoying myself on the whole.
  • Jakob: Oh?
  • Dwyer: Yeah. We didn't get to do much of that when I was little.
  • Jakob: Feel free to complain. There is no chance I will apologize. Ever. I simply did what I thought best for you. It was only after much deliberation that we decided to raise you in the Deeprealms.
  • Dwyer: I know, Father... You didn't want us to grow up in the shadow of war, right?
  • Jakob: Something like that...
  • Dwyer: I don't resent you for being absent when I was a child. Now that we actually have time to spend together, I've been thinking. I'd like to enjoy ever moment that I can with you.
  • Jakob: Hmph... You're certainly rather sentimental for a young man.
  • Dwyer: Haha... I suppose I do sound a little childish...
  • Jakob: That being said, you will always be my boy.
  • Dwyer: Father, I...
  • Jakob: How about a cup of coffee, hmm? Just make sure it's the finest brew you've ever made.
  • Dwyer: Heh, sure thing. Just wait here.
