  • Avatar: Leo, could I borrow you for a moment?
  • Leo: Certainly. What do you need?
  • Avatar: I was hoping you could help me study.
  • Leo: You? Wish to study? In the middle of a war? I'm happy to help, but why are you suddenly so serious about your education?
  • Avatar: I thought broadening my horizons might help me protect everyone... Now that we're at war, I can practice what I learn right away in a real battle.
  • Leo: The battlefield is not so kind, nor so simple. I'm sure you've learned that by now. Haven't you, Avatar?
  • Avatar: Well, yes, but...
  • Leo: However! I do think intellectual pursuits play a key role in keeping a mind sharp. That can make all the difference in the heat of battle. If you truly desire it, I will teach you anything you wish to know.
  • Avatar: Thank you, Leo!
  • Leo: But don't expect me to go easy on you. You know how strict I am about my studies.
  • Avatar: Um, I know, but maybe...you could lighten up just a little?
  • Leo: You ask the impossible. I will be as strict as I need to be to help your mind grow. Don't forget, you're the one who sought this out!
  • Avatar: I suppose that's true... I'll do whatever you ask of me without complaint.
  • Leo: Spoken like a model pupil. Now, let us begin!

  • Avatar: Leo! I finished the assignment you gave me on battle tactics.
  • Leo: Ah, excellent. Hand it over; I'll take a look.
  • Avatar: So, um...what do you think?
  • Leo: This is...rubbish. If you positioned your units this way, they'd all be massacred!
  • Avatar: What?! No way!
  • Leo: You're focusing too much on the enemies right in front of you. Rookie mistake. Do that, and you open the door for them to overtake you from behind. In this situation, try using a small, select group of soldiers to scout ahead. Guide them through here while keeping close watch on their formation. If you successfully reposition them like so, see how your battle options increase? You could even sneak around here and take out their commander with ease.
  • Avatar: Wow... That's amazing. You're so clever, Leo.
  • Leo: Not really. This is the most basic of the basics. Honestly, it's amazing you've survived this long.
  • Avatar: Yeah...I know. I certainly couldn't have made it so far alone. *sigh*
  • Leo: ...
  • Avatar: What's wrong, Leo?
  • Leo: Avatar...you know how, on the battlefield, we all look out for you? Why do you think that is?
  • Avatar: Probably because...I'm so new to all this.
  • Leo: Precisely, I'm glad you realized as much on your own. That's why Xander and Camilla have always paid more attention to you...
  • Avatar: Oh, Leo, I wouldn't say-
  • Leo: No, it's fine. The strong are always alone because no one thinks they need any help. But that's not true at all. There have been many times when I wished...that I had someone at my side, someone to help guide me through tough situations. But I am no longer a child, and I can't get away with saying such selfish things. All I'm trying to say is that you should enjoy where you are in the growth process.
  • Avatar: Leo...I'm so sorry. It's all my fault you feel so hurt, isn't it? The others have always doted on me so...
  • Leo: ...
  • Avatar: You're so talented, Leo. We're all so very impressed by you. We hold you up on a pedestal of sorts...but I can see how that might be lonely. But you should know that I would trade minds with you in a moment if I could. I'm trying so hard, but I never feel like I'm quite good enough to lead us...
  • Leo: ...Forgive me, Brother. I said too much. We are family, first and foremost. All that matters is we have each other's backs. Forgive my moment of weakness.
  • Avatar: It's OK, Leo. I know I'm not as strong or wise as I should be. But that's why I need your help. I hope you will consent to keep tutoring me...
  • Leo: Of course, Avatar. It would be my great honor.

A Support Edit

  • Avatar: Hey, Leo! I completed your latest battle tactics assignment.
  • Leo: Oh? Let's have a look. ...
  • Avatar: ...So? How did I do this time?
  • Leo: This is...really good, actually. Much better than the last one. Your units actually have a decent chance of survival.
  • Avatar: You think so? Phew! That's a relief.
  • Leo: Of course, there's always room for improvement. Still, you did well.
  • Avatar: It's all thanks to you, Leo. I couldn't have improved so quickly without your help.
  • Leo: Too true. In fact, showing a bit more gratitude wouldn't be out of line.
  • Avatar: Leo! You're the worst, haha. Is that really something a teacher should be saying?
  • Leo: Haha, my apologies. I tend to let my sharp tongue get carried away from time to time. Honestly, when you first asked for my help, I didn't think you'd be so dedicated.
  • Avatar: It's only because you're such a great teacher.
  • Leo: No, that's not it at all.
  • Avatar: It's...not?
  • Leo: I always had a theory about why Camilla lavishes attention on you... But now I've finally confirmed my suspicions. It's your kind heart. Being near you has a sort of unexplainable soothing effect. Additionally, you're so kind and eager to learn, it makes teaching you a great joy.
  • Avatar: Really? You mean it?
  • Leo: I do. Something about you just draws people in and makes them trust you. That's why, despite your lack of experience, you're such a natural leader. I thought the weak attracted the attention of others while the strong stood alone... But I see now that was a misunderstanding born of my own arrogance.
  • Avatar: Leo...
  • Leo: Thank you for helping me realize that, Avatar.
  • Avatar: Don't thank me. I didn't actually do anything...
  • Leo: Enough talk. I intend to polish you into the finest strategist Nohr has ever known. Scream and cry all you want, but I won't let you off the hook until you're perfect.
  • Avatar: Um, OK...just don't go TOO hard on me. Promise? ...Leo?!
  • Leo: Hmm. Well, just give me your best and we'll see what happens.

  • Leo: ...
  • Avatar: What's wrong, Leo? You look so sad...
  • Leo: Not now, Avatar.
  • Avatar: What's the matter? I know you too well, Leo. You can't keep anything from me. Come on now, tell me what's bothering you.
  • Leo: ...Could you please just leave me alone for a while?
  • Avatar: You don't mean that...right?
  • Leo: Sorry, it's just... You're the last person I want to see me like this.
  • Avatar: Oh, don't be silly. Being sad is nothing to be embarrassed about.
  • Leo: You don't understand. You couldn't. Please, just go.
  • Avatar: There's really nothing I can do to help you? Nothing at all?
  • Leo: ...
  • Avatar: Very well. If you don't want me around, I'll leave you to your solitude. Just know that I'm here for you. If you need anything at all, please let me know.
  • Leo: ...Forgive me, Avatar. Perhaps you can help after all. Will you hear me out?
  • Avatar: I thought you'd never ask.
  • Leo: I have a problem, and for the life of me I can't figure out a solution.
  • Avatar: There's something even the great Leo can't figure out?! What could it be?
  • Leo: There's something I want very badly, but I don't know how to go about obtaining it. This has never happened. I've never had a problem I couldn't think my way out of. I know it would be foolish to act without proper planning... And yet, I don't think I can hold myself back any longer.
  • Avatar: Leo... If it means that much to you, you have to go for it! What is it you want?
  • Leo: Perhaps this will make things clear.
  • Avatar: Wait...this is a ring!
  • Leo: Keen as ever. But as you might have surmised, this isn't just any ring... This is the ring you give to one special person whom you vow to love for eternity. When I bought this ring for you, for the first time in my life, I felt...happy. Pure happiness, like everything finally made sense in my life. I've been battling these emotions since I first learned we aren't blood related... But as I said, I cannot hold them back any longer.
  • Avatar: You don't mean...
  • Leo: Dear Avatar... It seems I've fallen madly in love with you. Would you do me the honor of accepting this ring?
  • Avatar: Leo! I don't know what to say...
  • Leo: I know-it's just... You're all I ever think about. I love you so much, I'm in agony!
  • Avatar: ...
  • Leo: I'm sorry... I know this is probably the last thing you expected me to say. But now that it's out there, I must know... Do you feel the same?
  • Avatar: Leo... Thank you. I happily accept this beautiful ring.
  • Leo: R-really?!
  • Avatar: Yes. I feel the same as you. These feelings are unexpected, but also...beautiful. I'm glad you said something. I don't think I ever would have had the courage to. I know I still have much to learn, but I promise to try my hardest for you! I want nothing more than to be worthy of your love.
  • Leo: You are perfectly splendid just as you are, Avatar. Together, I'm certain we will both continue to grow as warriors and as people.
  • Avatar: Heehee, I look forward to it!
  • Leo: Thank you for your hand, Avatar. I swear to devote my life to your happiness.
  • Avatar: Oh, Leo... I promise the same.
  • Leo: I've hidden my feelings for so long... I can't believe you felt the same way all this time. Stay with me forever.

With Azura Edit

C Support Edit

  • Azura: You are the ocean's gray waves... ♪
  • Leo: What a lovely melody...
  • Azura: Leo?! How long have you been standing there?
  • Leo: I apologize. I was going to say something but your song entranced me. I don't think I've ever heard music like that in Nohr.
  • Azura: ...My mother taught me that song.
  • Leo: Are you all right? You look a little pale.
  • Azura: I'm sorry. I just remembered something I've been trying to forget.
  • Leo: Is it about your time in Nohr? I've heard terrible stories about how you and your mother were treated.
  • Azura: Leo, please forgive me. I just realized I'm late to a meeting. Excuse me.
  • (Azura leaves)
  • Leo: Azura, wait!

B Support Edit

  • Azura: Goodness! You all sounded so lovely today. I'll see you again soon.
  • Leo: Who were those children you were singing with?
  • Azura: Leo! Shame on you. You know it's not polite to spy on people.
  • Leo: Please, accept my apologies. I didn’t want the singing to end. You looked so content.
  • Azura: Are you all right, Leo? You seem upset.
  • Leo: Yes, to be honest, something is troubling me. Your time in Hoshido was much happier than your time in Nohr.
  • Azura: Leo, Nohr was a dark place for me. Hoshidans were kind.
  • Leo: I've heard stories about the way my father’s servants and mistresses treated you. I imagine you must hate Nohrians. Wounds inflicted at a young age always leave scars.
  • Azura: That may be true, but I don’t hate anyone. After all, there are kind people in Nohr too. You taught me that.
  • Leo: I did? Thank you, but I'm a bit surprised. I thought you must despise us. I am so glad to hear you do not.
  • Azura: Of course I don’t despise you. Now, please excuse me. I am needed elsewhere. 

A Support Edit

  • Leo: Azura, may I ask you a favor?
  • Azura: Certainly.
  • Leo: I would like to hear you sing a song—start to finish. I'm always missing some part… I wander in after the beginning, or I interrupt you and never hear the end…
  • Azura: All right, Leo. As you wish.
  • (scene transition)
  • Leo: Your voice is truly exceptional. I didn’t want you to stop. Thank you, Azura.
  • Azura: You're welcome.
  • Leo: That’s the song your mother taught you, isn’t it? I can tell how much she meant to you. Every not is tinged with love.
  • Azura: My mother showed me that, even in the worst of circumstances, love never fails. With the right person by your side, even a dark place can be full of light.
  • Leo: Azura, I hope you mean that. I'd like to be that kind of person for you.
  • Azura: Leo… You already are.
  • Leo: Would you sing for me again? Just one more time…
  • Azura: It would be my pleasure.

S Support Edit

  • Leo: Azura, I need some advice.
  • Azura: Oh?
  • Leo: Say a man has grown to love a woman, but he's afraid to tell her how he feels. How should he go about proposing? I mean, hypothetically speaking…
  • Azura: Mmm. That is a difficult situation. The deeper the feelings, the greater the risk… If she turns him down, his heart will surely be broken.
  • Leo: Yes. It will.
  • Azura: But, then again, if he's really fallen for her and she says yes, he’ll be elated.
  • Leo: Precisely.
  • Azura: I know this is all hypothetical, but I think it's worth the risk. You should go ahead and ask her, Leo.
  • Leo: What?! I wasn’t talking about me!
  • Azura: Of course not. I'm just saying, in theory, if it WAS you, she’d say yes.
  • Leo: Do you really think so?
  • Azura: I'm certain.
  • Leo: Now you’ve taken all the fun out of it!
  • Azura: What?!
  • Leo: Does it even count if the girl gives him a response before he asks?!
  • Azura: Heehee, I was just trying to help. You looked so stressed.
  • Leo: Do I still have to get down on one knee?
  • Azura: Of course you do! I want to hear you ask me properly.
  • Leo: As you wish, my love. Azura…will you marry me?
  • Azura: Weren’t you paying attention? The girl said yes.
  • Leo: You are so frustrating. I can't wait to spend my life with you. 

With Felicia Edit

C Support Edit

  • Felicia: KYAAAAAAH! Not again!
  • (Crashing sounds)
  • Leo: Felicia... You appear to have dropped another plate. Are you OK?
  • Felicia: I-I'm so sorry, Lord Leo!
  • Leo: There's no need to apologize.
  • Felicia: Urgh...I'm still sorry though...
  • Leo: Nonsense. I've seen you make plenty of mistakes in the past. This wasn't the first and it won't be the last.
  • Felicia: I guess that's true, milord. I'm not very graceful.
  • Leo: True. In fact, it is my observation that you are not suited to be a servant.
  • Felicia: WHAT?! Don't say that!
  • Leo: Oh? Why? It's the truth, is it not? One mustn't shy away from the truth, Felicia. One must face it head on.
  • Felicia: Please, milord! I'll try harder, I promise! Don't make me leave!
  • Leo: I wouldn't dismiss you personally, though you do cause us undue grief. I was not threatening disciplinary action. I was merely offering food for thought. I implore you to reconsider. This profession may not be the right line of work for you. Now, if you'll excuse me, I must return to my studies. Good day, Felicia.
  • Felicia: Good-bye, Lord Leo...

B Support Edit

  • Felicia: There we go! Polished and shiny! Now to calmly and carefully carry them over there...
  • Leo: Hello, Felicia. What are you doing?
  • Felicia: Oh! Lord Leo... I was just practicing my maidly duties.
  • Leo: Oh? I don't think I'll ever understand why you put so much effort into such things. You are not good at housekeeping, and likely never will be.
  • Felicia: B-but if I try my hardest...
  • Leo: Don't fret. It's not as though you have nothing to contribute. There's another job for which you're much better suited.
  • Felicia: Huh? What's that?
  • Leo: Well, you're a remarkable soldier. Though you don't look it, you're quite the spectacle on the battlefield.
  • Felicia: Y-yes. Gunter tells me the same thing.
  • Leo: Then what's the problem? You should cease your duties as a servant today. You could do so much more for us if you worked as a soldier full-time.
  • Felicia: Well...
  • Leo: What's wrong? Is that not an agreeable proposition for you?
  • Felicia: I don't mind fighting... I'm happy to help out in the war whenever I'm required to.
  • Leo: Yes, I know. You are a brave and loyal woman, and you've served us well.
  • Felicia: But...at the end of the day, I don't want to be a soldier. I want to be a maid. I might not be perfect at it, but caring for everyone is what I want most.
  • Leo: Hmm. Well, I suppose it can't be helped. Do as you please, Felicia.
  • Felicia: Yes, milord! I'll do my best!

A Support Edit

  • Leo: Felicia.
  • Felicia: Yes, milord?
  • Leo: I've been wondering... What is it that drives you? Why do you want to be a maid so badly? As a soldier, everyone would recognize and respect your skills.
  • Felicia: It's because I want those who cared for me to be proud of me.
  • Leo: Those who cared for you?
  • Felicia: Yes. Since I arrived at the castle, so many people have shown me kindness. Like Gunter. He taught me everything he knew about being a servant. He was very strict, but he was also like a father to me. And Jakob too. He looked out for me when I was younger. Even though he says mean things, he's a very kind person inside. And...I want all those people to see me become a maid they can be proud of!
  • Leo: I see. I had no idea. In that case, I will not press the issue any further.
  • Felicia: Lord Leo...
  • Leo: You will need to work very hard, but I believe you can do it. I wish you only the best, Felicia.
  • Felicia: Thank you, Lord Leo! I'll give it my all!

S Support Edit

  • Leo: Felicia, do you have a moment?
  • Felicia: Yes, of course. But let me finish moving these dishes first.
  • Leo: Hm, that stack looks a bit precarious. May I assist you?
  • Felicia: No, that's all right! I can do it my—ARRRRGGGHH!
  • Leo: *sigh* I knew that would happen.
  • Felicia: I'm so sorry, Lord Leo! Are you hurt?
  • Leo: I'm fine. And you?
  • Felicia: I'm OK...
  • Leo: That's a relief. Well, I suppose we'd better clean up these plates.
  • Felicia: Oh! You mean you'll help?! Thank you, milord.
  • Felicia: Phew! That took longer than expected. So, um, what was it that you wanted to talk to me about?
  • Leo: Felicia...I love you.
  • Felicia: L-Lord Leo?! What are you saying?
  • Leo: Just that. During our time together, I've grown to admire you. I love how you're willing to devote your life to making those you love proud. You're earnest and strong, yet sweet and caring. You astound me. I wish to be with you, Felicia. Please...will you be my wife?
  • Felicia: Y-you know I can't do that!
  • Leo: Why not?
  • Felicia: What do you mean, "why not"? You're royalty! You can't marry someone like me! Besides...I'm not worthy of you. I'll break all the plates and mess up your laundry!
  • Leo: I don't wish to hire you as a servant, Felicia. That would be ill-advised. But last I checked, love has nothing to do with menial housework. And yes, I am royalty. A prince of Nohr, no less. That means I can be with whomever I wish, even a clumsy maid. So, please, allow me to ask you again... Will you be mine, dear Felicia?
  • Felicia: Lord Leo... Yes! A thousand times yes!
  • Leo: Truly? Thank you, Felicia. You've made me happier than I ever imagined I could be.
  • Felicia: Heehee. I could say the same thing to you, milord.

With Mozu Edit

 C Support Edit

  • Leo: Hm, I must weigh my options carefully... Perhaps if I... No...
  • (Mozu enters)
  • Mozu: Um, Lord Leo?
  • Leo: Ah, Mozu. Is there something you need?
  • Mozu: Nope. In fact, I came here wondering if there's anything I can do for you.
  • Leo: Oh? That's very kind of you.
  • Mozu: I just wanna make sure I'm pulling my weight around here.
  • Leo: A laudable goal indeed.
  • Mozu: Also, it looked like you were fretting over something, so I thought I could help.
  • Leo: It's nothing pressing. I'm just milling over some tactical options. I'm trying to determine the best way to break this deadlock on the chessboard.
  • Mozu: Riiight. Gosh, that's a lot of pieces. What do they all do...?
  • Leo: I could try a pincer attack from the right, but I hesitate to leave the left flank weak. There's got to be a better way...but I simply can't see it at the moment. Which tactic seems most sound to you, Mozu?
  • Mozu: I...uh...well... Y'you gotta try hard, right?
  • Leo: ...
  • Mozu: And never say die!
  • Leo: ...Yes, I'll take that into consideration.
  • Mozu: Sorry! You're just asking the wrong gal when it comes to this stuff.
  • Leo: Don't be so hard on yourself. Everyone has their own strengths; this just isn't yours.
  • Mozu: Yeah, but...I wanna do more to help... *sigh*

B Support Edit

  • Mozu: Lord Leo...
  • Leo: Hello, Mozu. You look rather glum...Are you still down about the other day?
  • Mozu: Yeah. I wanted to do more to help out around here, but...I just don't know where to start.
  • Leo: Well, let's see. I could perhaps help point you in the right direction, if you'd like.
  • Mozu: Really?! You'd do that?
  • Leo: Yes. I pride myself on my ability to see the value in people and find a role for them
  • Mozu: So you can find something for me to do?
  • Leo: I expect so. But is that really what you want?
  • Mozu: Why wouldn't I?
  • Leo:d I'd be giving you a role because you can't find one for yourself. Would you really be satisfied merely doing as you're told?
  • Mozu: I dunno...but I gotta do SOMETHING around here!
  • Leo: I understand your drive. After all, you no longer have a home to return to.
  • Mozu: ...
  • Leo: Which is precisely my point. I want you to dig deep and find a niche for yourself, if at all possible. Doing so is a skill you'll need for the rest of your life. You won't always have someone to decide these things for you, after all. While I'm happy to assist, I want you to first give it another try yourself. I truly think you'll be happiest that way.
  • Mozu: ...

  • Mozu: There we go! Phew, I'm beat.
  • Leo: Mozu? Is that...a wild boar?
  • Mozu: Sure is! I'm gonna have to carve it up and smoke it right away. We should be set on rations for a while now!
  • Leo: Yes, I imagine so. Did you hunt it yourself?
  • Mozu: I surely did. I'm a pretty good hunter.
  • Leo: I'm very impressed that you brought down something so huge on our own.
  • Mozu: Yeah! It's a nice contribution to the army don't you think?
  • Leo: Undeniably.
  • Mozu: Haha, phew! Thanks to you, Lord Leo, I feel like I've come a long way.
  • Leo: Hm? But I didn't do anything.
  • Mozu: Not exactly. If you hadn't said something, I'd still be hemming and hawing. Like you said, I don't have a home of my own these days. But all the same...I want to fill every second with good work, for all the ones who died. To honor them. And I can't do that without making a new home for myself. A home with you folks.
  • Leo: Mozu...
  • Mozu: If there's anything I can do for you or the others, I want you to let me know. Even if I'm still not quite sure of my place...
  • Leo: That's quite all right. It's OK to be unsure. We all are at times. What matters most is that you never lose the will to keep pushing forward. Good work, Mozu. I'm happy you've made a new home with us.
  • Mozu: You know what, Lord Leo? So am I.

S Support Edit

  • Leo: Mozu... I was wondering...do you still feel like you're without a home?
  • Mozu: Well, to be honest...yeah. I probably always will in a way.
  • Leo: I see. I'm sorry to hear that.
  • Mozu: Well, it's just hard, is all. My family isn't around anymore. And I still haven't found anywhere I love as much as my old village.
  • Leo: I'm sorry. it was rude of me to bring up something so painful.
  • Mozu: It's all right... I know you meant well.
  • Leo: Ugh, I'm just going to say something I'll regret if I dance around this too much. So let me just ask directly.
  • Mozu: Ask me what?
  • Leo: Mozu, will you marry me?
  • Mozu: M-marry you?!
  • Leo: I mean it. I even brought you a ring.
  • Mozu: B-but... Why would you wanna marry me?
  • Leo: It's your pure heart, Mozu. I've never met anyone quite like you.
  • Mozu: But...I'm just a farm girl...
  • Leo: That's only how you view yourself. Not how I see you. Let me ask you this... What's your opinion of me?
  • Mozu: You're real strict, but also really kind. Actually, I think you're wonderful.
  • Leo: Wonderful enough to marry?
  • Mozu: No... I don't think I can marry you.
  • Leo: Oh. May I ask why no?
  • Mozu: We're from two different worlds! I'm a farm girl. I don't know anything except working the soil and hunting. You marry me, and people will be up in arms over it!
  • Leo: The luxury of nobility is that I don't need their approval. I only need yours.
  • Mozu: I dunno...
  • Leo: If you don't love me, then so be it. But I won't let a difference in status stop us.
  • Mozu: Well...if you really mean that...
  • Leo: I do understand your concerns. But please, let me worry about that. You have my word that I'll protect you as long as I live.
  • Mozu: Lord Leo...
  • Leo: Once more, Mozu... Will you marry me?
  • Mozu: Yeah... Yeah, I will. No matter where I end up, my home will be with you, Lord Leo.
  • Leo: Nothing would please me more.

With Xander Edit

C Support Edit

  • Xander: Leo, do you have a moment? I wish to speak with you about the last war meeting.
  • Leo: The war meeting? Whatever about?
  • Xander: I saw you raise your hand is if you were about to give your opinion on something.
  • Xander: But then you lowered it without a word.
  • Leo: Ah. Well...
  • Leo: That was...
  • Xander: If you take issue with what I'm proposing, you should not hesitate to speak up.
  • Xander: You are a prince of Nohr, Leo. It is your royal duty to do so.
  • Leo: I suppose... though there would have been no point in speaking up
  • Xander: How so?
  • Leo: *sigh* Because you're the crown prince, Xander. You alone decide what we do.
  • Leo: And with the great Xander at the helm, my ideas are like those of a child.
  • Leo: So what's the point of speaking up?
  • Xander: What's the point in remaining silent? If I was in your shoes, I would...
  • Leo: That's just it, Xander! I'm NOT you!
  • Xander: !!
  • Leo: I'm sorry, Brother, please, forgive me for my outburst. I beg of you to let this go.
  • Leo: It is my fault, as ever. I promise to make you proud next time.
  • Xander: Leo...

B Support Edit

  • Xander: Leo, may I speak with you?
  • Leo: Certainly, what's on your mind.
  • Xander: The other day, you said quite passionatley that you and I are not the same.
  • Leo: Oh, that. I'm sorry I said anything, I lost my head for a moment.
  • Xander: Not at all. What you said is true.
  • Xander: You and I are different people, Leo, and I am grateful for that.
  • Xander: You have your own strengths and your own way of doing things... just as I have mine.
  • Xander: I do not expect you to follow in my footsteps, Brother.
  • Leo: ...
  • Leo: Hey, Xander. Do you remember when we trained together when we were little?
  • Xander: Of course. It was my duty as the eldest to prepare my siblings for combat.
  • Leo: Even back then, you excelled at everything you tried.
  • Leo: Fighting, horsemanship, elocution, swimming, the list goes on.
  • Leo: You were unstoppable. Not me, though.
  • Leo: I had to work so hard at everything. I was so envious of you.
  • Xander: ...
  • Leo: At first, we all practiced swordsmanship, magic, and hand-to-hand combat together.
  • Leo: But eventually, you took to the sword while I devoted myself to magic.
  • Leo: A large part of the reason I chose magic... Was because you didn't.
  • Leo: I knew that if I walked the same path as you, I would always be in your shadow.
  • Leo: The joke's on me, though. Your shadow is too grand to escape, I'm afraid.
  • Xander: Leo, I...
  • Leo: I know, Xander. You and I are different. There is no point in comparing us.
  • Leo: I know that, I do, and yet...
  • Leo: I don't think I'll ever stop trying to reach your heights... or failing miserably to do so.
  • Xander: ...
  • Leo: Sorry, it must be hard having such a petty, competitive brother. Please, forgive me...
  • Xander: Leo!

A Support Edit

  • Xander: Leo! May I have a moment of your time? I want you to know I'm grateful you finally told me how you feel. I have something to tell you as well.
  • Leo: ...
  • Xander: When we were both young, only beginning to find our feet on the battlefield... I was relieved the day you chose to walk the path of magic instead of the blade.
  • Leo: I don't understand. Why would you be relieved?
  • Xander: Before then, I always felt you at my heels, pushing me. Pressuring me.
  • Leo: Pressuring you? Me?
  • Xander: You're so precocious, Leo. It was only a matter of time before you caught up to me. You say you were envious of me, but the truth is, I felt the same way about you.
  • Leo: That's nice of you to say, Xander, but I don't need your empty flattery.
  • Xander: Sullen Leo... You still don't get it.
  • Leo: Get what?
  • Xander: You were so concerned about being inferior to me in any way... But of course you were. You were much younger and much less experienced. You said that when we were younger I excelled at everything.
  • Leo: You did. You were unstoppable.
  • Xander: That's because I had already been training for years! It's only natural. Yet even with my advantage you were closing the gap between us so quickly... If you had bested me, the eldest prince... I would have failed as your brother. That's part of why I try so hard. As your brother, it's my job to stay one step ahead.
  • Leo: I... I don't know what to believe.
  • Xander: I had only spoken the truth, Leo. In your heart, you must know that. I value you more than you know. So there's no reason to be shy around me, is there? I implore you to speak your mind boldly in our war meetings, for the benefit of us all.
  • Leo: ... As you wish, Xander. From now on, no more holding back on my opinions. In fact you better watch yourself, or I maybe nipping at your heels again soon.
  • Xander: Ha! I dearly hope so. I'm so proud of you, Leo.
  • Leo: Thanks, Xander. But enough brotherly bonding... Let's talk strategy!

With Camilla Edit

C Support Edit

  • Leo: Camilla, you're looking radiant today. Have you changed your hair?
  • Camilla: Aw, thanks, Leo. No, it's just the same old style. But thanks for the compliment. Speaking of compliments, I think your armor is really cute.
  • Leo: Cute? Ugh, that's the last thing I want to hear about my armor.
  • Camilla: Heehee! Sorry, my sweet brother, but it's true. The matching leggings really make that whole outfit sing.
  • Leo: Gods...
  • Camilla: Oh, Leo. I know you're one of our most skilled warriors... But to me, you'll always be a baby brother.
  • Leo: I see. A baby. Splendid.
  • Camilla: Well, what's wrong with that? Don't worry—it's not like I'm going to pinch your cheeks in the heat of battle.
  • Leo: ...
  • Camilla: The silent treatment, eh? Fine. I have errands to run anyway. See you later, Leo.
  • Leo: I should have kept my mouth shut...

B Support Edit

  • Leo: Camilla, do you have a moment?
  • Camilla: Of course, Leo. How may I help you?
  • Leo: Well, I've discovered an interesting tome in the archive... But I'm having a hard time decoding some of the inscriptions. I was wondering if you could take a look.
  • Camilla: Leo, if you can't make sense of them, what makes you think I'll have a chance? You were always the brighter student, remember?
  • Leo: I wouldn't say that. I mean—
  • Camilla: Please, spare me. You've always been the talented little brother. Even when you were a child, I was learning from you, and not the other way around.
  • Leo: ...
  • Camilla: What's the matter? Is it something I said?
  • Leo: No, it's nothing. Don't worry about it.
  • Camilla: Please, don't feel bad. I'm proud to have a brother as smart as you.
  • Leo: Sometimes I wish I weren't so "talented." Then maybe you'd pay more attention to me...
  • Camilla: Sorry, you're mumbling a bit, dear. I didn't quite catch that.
  • Leo: It's nothing. Forget it. No, wait, Camilla. I do have something to say. Listen well. I'm going to use this war as an opportunity to prove myself to you and everyone else. I just ask that you pay attention.
  • Camilla: Of course. But you have nothing to prove! I believe in you one hundred percent.
  • Leo: Then I shall reach for one hundred and fifty.

A Support Edit

  • Leo: Camilla, I need to speak with you about something important.
  • Camilla: What's the matter?
  • Leo: I need you to know—I'm not as talented as you think I am. I haven't done anything worthy of your pride. So you can stop faking it.
  • Camilla: What are you talking about?
  • Leo: I don't have the overwhelming power that Xander does. I'm not good with people like Elise. And how could I POSSIBLY compare to your beloved Avatar?
  • Camilla: Leo...
  • Leo: No, it's true. Everyone but me is actually deserving of your love.
  • Camilla: I'm sorry you feel that way, Leo. But I really am proud of you. Please believe me.It's true that I love Elise, Xander, and Avatar too... But I have plenty of love to give. More than enough for you.
  • Leo: It's OK. I'm not a little kid anymore. You don't have to say that.
  • Camilla: Look, to be honest, I've been a little more hands off with you than the others. But that's because I didn't want to get in your way! You're going to do great things in this world, Leo. And I'm going to sit back and watch.
  • Leo: ...
  • Camilla: Don't believe me? Well, I saw what you did in that battle the other day...
  • Leo: You...did?
  • Camilla: One of our allies was in trouble, and you rushed in to protect him. Even though it put you in a vulnerable position. You took quite a hit!
  • Leo: Indeed, I did...
  • Camilla: And it's not just that. I notice you studying late into the night. I see how many hours you dedicate to your training...and how you encourage others. I've kept a careful eye on you, Brother, so I know my pride in you is justified.
  • Leo: I...I had no idea.
  • Camilla: You work so hard, Leo. And you worry too much. But part of that is my fault. I should have been more vocal with my support. Please forgive me. I will be a better sister from now on.
  • Leo: No, no. I'm the one who should work on becoming a better sibling... I can't believe how self-absorbed I've been. Forgive me, and I will work even harder to be worthy of your pride.
  • Camilla: All right, if it will make you feel better... I forgive you. Now, can we just go back to our normal roles? I'll be the doting older sister, and you been the genius who's smarter than everyone. Deal?
  • Leo: Haha, deal.

With Elise Edit

C Support Edit

  • Elise: Leo! Hey, Leo!
  • Leo: Hello Elise. What's going on?
  • Elise: Oh my gosh, it was so weird!
  • Leo: What was weird?
  • Elise: The weather! It was raining cats and dogs, but the sun was still super bright!
  • Leo: Oh, I see. You saw a sun shower.
  • Elise: A sun-shower?
  • Leo: Yes. There are a few possible explanations.
  • Leo: The most likely is that the heavy rain was carried somewhere by a strong wind.
  • Elise: Wow! That's incredible...
  • Elise: You're a genius, Leo!
  • Leo: Hm? No, not really. That sort of thing is common knowledge, I assure you.
  • Elise: Can I come to you whenever I have a question about something?
  • Leo: Of course, Elise.
  • Elise: Hooray! Thank you so much!

B Support Edit

  • Elise: Hey, Leo! I have another question for you!
  • Leo: Oh? What is it?
  • Elise: What did Father used to be like?
  • Leo: Hm? What do you mean?
  • Elise: Xander told me that Father used to be different, but he didn't say more.
  • Elise: So I was kind of hoping you could tell me what kind of person father was back then.
  • Leo: Hmm. Well, before Queen Arete passed away, I'd say he was a gentle father.
  • Elise: Gentle? I can't even imagine him like that.
  • Leo: I know, if I were you, I wouldn't believe it either. But I used to be very find of father.
  • Leo: He doted on us. He even gave me piggyback rides whenever I asked!
  • Elise: What?! I'm so jealous! He never treated me like that!
  • Elise: What else? What else?
  • Leo: He was a courageous person. He's even ride out to battle on the front lines.
  • Leo: Obviously, I've never seen him do so myself, but that's what I've been told.
  • Leo: But I did see him spar. He was so strong, I couldn't help but believe the stories.
  • Elise: Wow, really? I want to meet back-then-father! He sounds amazing!
  • Leo: He was. To tell you the truth, I wish I could see him again as well.
  • Leo: Let's see, what else did they say about him? Ah, yes.
  • Leo: When he was young, he never ran out of love stories to tell.
  • Leo: All the girls in the kingdom wanted to be at his side.
  • Leo: And they weren't just interested in the throne, either. He was quite the character.
  • Elise: Heehee! OUR Father? A ladie's man?! It's not possible.
  • Leo: I know it's hard to believe now, but he was known as an incredibly charismatic leader.
  • Leo: Unfortunatley, this charisma inspired much chaos among his suitors.
  • Leo: There were so many vying for his favor that they frequentley turned to violence.
  • Leo: Some even turned on members of their own family.
  • Elise: What?! How could someone do something like that to their own family?
  • Leo: I suppose they lost of their self-control in their effect to rise in position.
  • Leo: I agree, it certainly does not speak well of their character.
  • Elise: I see...
  • Leo: Elise? are you OK?
  • Elise: Huh? Oh, it's nothing!
  • Elise: It's almost time to eat. We should hurry back before all the food is gone!
  • Elise: Thanks for telling me about father, Leo.
  • Leo: No problem at all.

A Support Edit

  • Elise: Hey, Leo.
  • Leo: Hello. Elise. Do you have more questions for me?
  • Elise: Yeah... *sigh*
  • Leo: What's wrong?
  • Elise: Well, I was just wondering... Do you think that we'll always get along? Not just you and me, but Xander and Camilla and Avatar too!
  • Leo: Hm? Where's this coming from?
  • Elise: I was just thinking about your story the other day. You said Father's suitors fought with their own family members... Couldn't the same thing happen to us? We have different mothers, after all...
  • Leo: That we do. And yes, our mothers were not exactly... well, they weren't the friendliest.Before you were born, the situation was awful, even within the royal family. My mother used me as a tool to win favor in the court.
  • Elise: Leo...
  • Leo: It's fine. I never loved her. In all fairness, she never loved me either. I was merely an instrument to her-a lever to pull to adjust the scales of power.
  • Elise: I see... I...I think I know how you feel. All my mother cared about was Father. Even when she was dying, she only called out for Father. Not me.
  • Leo: Elise...
  • Elise: I'm just so worried, Leo. I love you all so much! But how can I make sure we don't ever turn on each other? What if we can't be close like this in the future? That would be awful!
  • Leo: Calm yourself, Elise. You're getting carried away again. We'll never be like that. I promise. Whatever our blood ties may be, in our hearts we are truly a family. Nothing could ever change that.
  • Elise: Really? You think so?
  • Leo: I do.
  • Elise: Yay! I think so too!
  • Leo: You do? Then why were you worrying yourself about it?
  • Elise: Well, I had to make sure! But if YOU agree, then it must be true!
  • Leo: You really put a lot of faith in me, don't you?
  • Elise: Well, duh! You're super smart! And I know you'd never lie to me 'cause I love you!
  • Leo: Is that the reason you trust in me? I'm afraid that's a little naive...
  • Elise: Well, I'd rather be naive than not trust my own brother! If I didn't have my siblings... I'm not sure if life would even be worth living!
  • Leo: Elise, please... Don't say such things. In any case, so long as at least one of us never stops trusting, we'll be fine.
  • Elise: We will?
  • Leo: Yes, If any of us siblings began to feel lost, they could always be reminded. Nothing is more important than our family. So long as we hold to this truth in our hearts, our bonds will never break.
  • Elise: Wow. That's just what I wanted to hear! Ya know, you're more optimistic than you let on, heehee.
  • Leo: ...Don't push your luck, Elise. Also, do me a favor and don't tell Xander we had this conversation. He would probably just get all embarrassed and huffy.
  • Elise: You mean YOU would get all embarrassed and huffy! But sure thing. It's our little secret! Thanks for talking with me, Leo.
  • Leo: Of course. I'm always here for you, Elise.

With Effie Edit

C Support Edit

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

B Support Edit

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

With Odin Edit

C SupportEdit

  • Leo: Odin.
  • Odin: Yes, milord? Have you a new task for me? Perhaps a forbidden object to recover, or the destruction of an ancient foe?
  • Leo: Not exactly, no.
  • Odin: Oh. Then what do you require of me?
  • Leo: It is about your guarding of the supply lines. I heard there was an incident.
  • Odin: Ah, yes! I remember it well. An enemy raiding party came upon us at dawn. They swept over the hill like a crimson tide, but at the last moment I struck. Blinded by the radiance of my magic's light, they broke off their charge. And as they regrouped, I put them down, one by one. Kapow! One down! Boom! Another! Until all were returned to the unforgiving soil. Well...I might be embellishing. There was a small attack, but it was no big deal.
  • Leo: That isn't want I heard. I hear the enemy cornered you, but you triumphed. Perhaps not quite alone, and not in such a heroic fashion, but still, you prevailed. Our people credit you with the fact they still draw breath at all. You did well, Odin. You have my gratitude.
  • Odin: Your words do me far more honor than I deserve.
  • Leo: No, they do you far too little. There is no one I count on more than you. I very much look forward to your continued service. But we will talk more of this later. There are, unfortunately, urgent matters I must attend to. You are dismissed.
  • Odin: Milord!
  • Leo: Yes, Odin?
  • Odin: Was, um...was that all?
  • Leo: Hm? Yes, I believe that will do.
  • Odin: I-I see. I guess I'll be off, then...
  • (Odin leaves)
  • Leo: Hm. That was odd. He looked so dissatisfied. I wonder what that was about. He's not the sort to crave rewards...

B SupportEdit

  • Leo: Odin, may we speak for a moment?
  • Odin: Of course, milord. Is something wrong?
  • Leo: I was about to ask you the same question. You seem despondent of late.
  • Odin: Huh? No, I'm fine.
  • Leo: See? Right there. That's not how you would usually answer that question. Normally you'd say "My soul surges with power!" or "The blood...it rages!" There must be something wrong. Are you dissatisfied with your missions?
  • Odin: Dissatisfied? I don't know. These missions have been very reasonable. It's just...
  • Leo: Just what?
  • Odin: They aren't exciting. But I know they're important, and I'll not neglect my duties.
  • Leo: Exciting? Have I given you orders that were exciting in the past?
  • Odin: You have. When I first became your retainer, for example. Those missions were the stuff of legends!
  • Leo: Wait, you enjoyed those? We're thinking about the same missions, right? Where I sent you to find a lodestone "imbued with the essence of darkness." Or to defeat the spirits that slept in the Woods of the Forlorn.
  • Odin: Yes! That's exactly what I'm talking about!
  • Leo: ...Really?
  • Odin: Yes, legendary feats! Missions worthy of a true hero of darkness! Those are the types of missions that make my blood boil with exhilaration!
  • Leo: I see.
  • Odin: I won't ask you to give me those sorts of missions all the time, but...please. Give me more like them! I haven't had a good adventure in ages! A hero needs more than fetch quests and escort missions.
  • Leo: All right, Odin. I'll think it over.
  • Odin: Thank you, milord! I now go into the world with renewed purpose! FELL purpose!
  • (Odin leaves)
  • Leo: Huh. That certainly put the spring back into his step.

A SupportEdit

  • Odin: You called, milord? What is it? Is it time for one of your special missions yet? Just give me the order! What heroic deed do you require of me?
  • Leo: I'm sorry, Odin. I thought long and hard, but there's nothing I can give you. I simply can't send you out on missions like that anymore.
  • Odin: You...can't? But why not? Have I displeased you, milord?
  • Leo: No. Quite the opposite, in fact.
  • Odin: I'm afraid I don't understand.
  • Leo: When I used to give you those dangerous missions, I did so to prove a point. It was nothing personal. You must think about it from my perspective at the time. Here was a complete stranger my father was forcing me to accept as my retainer. So I assigned you impossible tasks, hoping you'd hate me and run away.
  • Odin: I...see.
  • Leo: I didn't think I could trust you, Odin, and it seemed like the only way to be rid of you. But you were so competent, you completed even the most impossible quests. At least a few of them were things I made up on the spot. I'd never even heard of a lodestone imbued with the essence of darkness. It doesn't even make sense! But you found one all the same.
  • Odin: Well, I DO know a thing or two about darkness, milord.
  • Leo: And the legends of the spirits haunting the Woods of the Forlorn are terrible...
  • Odin: Eh, they're not so bad. Better than the Risen.
  • Leo: Risen?
  • Odin: ...Wild animals from my homeland.
  • Leo: I see. Well, the point is, I never expected success on your part. These were futile errands, things I'd never send even our best soldiers to do. That's a large part of why I came to trust and value you as a retainer. Which is why I can't send you on those sorts of missions now.
  • Odin: Ah, so that's why you warmed up to me seemingly out of the blue.
  • Leo: Yes. I was impressed by your skill and drive. Before long, it was clear I had found in you an invaluable ally. And because of this, I cannot send you on such dangerous and pointless missions. Now do you understand?
  • Odin: Yes, milord, but --
  • Leo: No arguments, Odin. I don't know what I would do if I lost you. I need you and Niles by my side. Even after we've restored peace to this world. That is, after all, when the real work will actually begin.
  • Odin: Even after we've restored peace?
  • Leo: Of course. Is there a problem?
  • Odin: No, milord. But...suppose I were to vanish after the fighting was over. You would take on a new retainer, would you not?
  • Leo: ...Yes, I suppose I would. I would have no choice.
  • Odin: Good. I'm glad to hear it.
  • Leo: But there aren't many like you. I think it would be much harder to go on. Any successes might even feel a little... hollow, without you there. Bittersweet.
  • Odin: Milord...
  • Leo: So I'd much prefer you remain my retainer forever. Let's say you do disappear. Fall through a void and into another world. I would still like you to carry your title with you. That way, I'll know there will always be some connection between us. And then, when we begin our peacetime work, I'll know I have your blessing.
  • Odin: Another world, eh? Hm. Thank you, Lord Leo. It would be an honor to remain your retainer for life. I would follow you into the jaws of oblivion and back, were it not for... Well, anyway. Thank you.
  • Leo: No, Odin. Thank you. You have ever been a loyal retainer to me. But, more importantly, you have always been a good friend. I will always remember you as such.
  • Odin: And I you, milord.

With Niles Edit

C Support Edit

  • Leo: Good day, Niles.
  • Niles: Lord Leo. What is your command?
  • Leo: At ease. I was just making conversation. You look like you were deep in thought. Thinking about anything in particular?
  • Niles: Not really. Just reminiscing about the past. I suppose.
  • Leo: Oh? I thought your past was rather unpleasant.
  • Niles: Oh yes, it certainly was. But it doesn't make me sad to think about it. I mostly wish I could string together more memories...
  • Leo: How do you mean?
  • Niles: I only have fleeting visions of my youth. I can picture an old brick. A field mouse. Torrential rain. Some kind of...horribly disfigured man. A pile of money. The taste of blood.
  • Leo: Gods...
  • Niles: Those fragments rattle around in my head from time to time.
  • Leo: I see.
  • Niles: It's not exactly...painful. But it isn't pleasant, either.
  • Leo: Well, I'll...leave you to it.

B Support Edit

  • Niles: Lord Leo... I must apologize. The last time we spoke, I burdened you with some of my past...
  • Leo: Nonsense, Niles. I don't mind.
  • Niles: Well, I appreciate you saying that. It puts me at ease.
  • Leo: I do have a question for you, though. You don't have to answer it if you don't feel like it... Do you have any fond memories whatsoever?
  • Niles: I have one. Even now, I can remember it in vivid detail.
  • Leo: Please, tell me about it.
  • Niles: It was the moment I met you, Lord Leo.
  • Leo: Is that so?
  • Niles: Yes. You must remember. I had broken into the palace with my supposed friends. They betrayed me at the first sign of danger.
  • Leo: That's right. They left you as a decoy, didn't they?
  • Niles: Yes.
  • Leo: And I... was about to execute you.
  • Niles: Heh. Yes. Now the memories are flooding back.
  • Leo: It was so curious, how you didn't beg for your life at all. Rather, you begged for your death. That piqued my interest. And had the opposite effect of saving your life.
  • Niles: Which leads to us now.
  • Leo: Most people wouldn't consider nearly being executed to be a pleasant memory...
  • Niles: Fair point. But I am decidedly not "most people". I owe you a debt that can never be fully repaid, milord. But that's not to say I won't try...

A Support Edit

  • Niles: Hmm...
  • Leo: Still reminiscing, Niles?
  • Niles: Not exactly, Lord Leo. I was thinking about the future.
  • Leo: Ah, I often find myself worrying about the future as well. We're living in uncertain times, that's for sure.
  • Niles: On the contrary, milord. I've never been more confident.
  • Leo: Really? How so?
  • Niles: Because at long last I have a purpose in this world. And that is to serve you.
  • Leo: Niles, I appreciate your dedication, and you are most capable as a retainer, but... You needn't put things in such dramatic terms.
  • Niles: Again, I must contradict you, milord! You're the only one in this world who has placed trust in me. You've given my life a purpose. If anything, I am downplaying the debt I owe you.
  • Leo: Well, thank you again. I do consider myself lucky to have such a loyal and trustworthy retainer.
  • Niles: Please, I'm not worthy of such praise! Do you remember the broken memories I described to you recently? I retain almost nothing from my youth... But I can recall every moment since the day you rescued me in vivid detail! These new memories are what give me strength to continue living.
  • Leo: Niles, I...
  • Niles: Make no mistake, milord. I will protect you until the very end. I would gladly sacrifice my own life for yours, should it ever become necessary.
  • Leo: I don't know what to say... So I suppose "thank you" will have to suffice. I will try to be worthy of your continued dedication and support.
  • Niles: Thank you... Leo.

With Peri Edit

C Support Edit

  • Peri: Heeheeheehee!
  • Leo: You seem excited about something, Peri. Are you going out?
  • Peri: Oh, hi, Lord Leo! I was just thinking about going to kill someone! Do you want to come? There’ll be buckets of blood—and fun!
  • Leo: Who is the target?
  • Peri: Oh, I haven’t worked out the little details yet! I thought I'd just wing it and kill whoever caught my eye!
  • Leo: I don’t follow. Why would you kill a perfect stranger?
  • Peri: Hey, sometimes you get a craving to kill, and you just have to run with it!
  • Leo: I've…never had such a craving. You kill simply for fun? In defiance of common decency?
  • Peri: What's a common decency? I've never heard of that, so it can't be as common as you say…
  • Leo: I'm sorry, Peri. Now that I know your intentions, I can't allow you to leave.
  • Peri: Whaaaaaat?! You big meanie!

B Support Edit

  • Leo: Peri, i won't let this rest until you understand. It is a gross violation of common decency to commit murder on a childish whim! Even if the victim is bad!
  • Peri: You still haven't explained to me what a common decency is!
  • Leo: It is the set of unspoken agreements that allows a society to function.
  • Peri: Unspoken?! Then how am I supposed to know?
  • Leo: Because every normal person figures it out on their own!
  • Peri: Oh. Well, there you go! I'm not a normal person---I'm special! Besides, what's the big deal; about killing? Everyone in the army kills loads of people whenever we have a battle!
  • Leo: Yes, but the people we kill on the battlefield are immediate foes. What's more, if we didn't kill them, they would kill us.
  • Peri: So it's OK to kill our enemies, but not whoever else we feel like?
  • Leo: Yes, that's it exactly. Killing one's foes is not just OK---it's necessary.
  • Peri: And all normal people know that?
  • Leo: Well...not necessarily.
  • Peri: Fine! I get it. If it matters that much, I'll go find an ENEMY to kill!
  • Leo: Your plan is to stroll into the enemy camp all by yourself?
  • Peri: Nah, no need. I make enemies all the time! People I hate a lot are enemies, right?
  • Leo: When I said foes, I meant the forces our army is opposing.
  • Peri: Wait, now you're telling me there are different kinds of enemies? Do people I dislike not count?
  • Leo: *sigh* A personal enemy is different from an enemy on the battlefield...
  • Peri: What are you talking about?! One minute you say killing is wrong, then suddenly it's fine! Can't you explain it better, Lord Leo?!
  • Leo: Of course! My apologies. Let me try this again...
  • Peri: For me, killing is killing, whether it's on the battlefield or just for funsies. What's the big difference? How is one right and one wrong?
  • Leo: Ugh... I'll get back to you on that...

A Support Edit

  • Leo: Peri...
  • Peri: Hi, Lord Leo! Did you figure it out? The difference between good killing and bad killing?
  • Leo: Well, I thought long and hard about it. In a way, you're right. There is a certain merit to the idea that all killing is the same.
  • Peri: Whether you strike down a foe in battle or murder an innocent in the streets...
  • Leo: I suppose killing is killing. Either way, you are robbing someone of their life.
  • Peri: Yeah, that makes sense.
  • Leo: Yet there are situations in this world where one has no choice but to kill. If killing serves a higher purpose, one may even be praised for it.
  • Peri: I know just what you mean! If I kill lots of enemies, everyone tells me I did a great job!
  • Leo: I wonder...We call you mad, but is it not truly mad to laud killing of any sort?
  • Peri: Wow, you're rude! I'm not crazy at all!
  • Leo: You may be right.
  • Peri: So what's the lesson here? I want you to explain to me who it's OK to kill!
  • Leo: Strictly speaking, it's never OK to kill.
  • Peri: Whaaat?! Now I'm REALLY confused.
  • Leo: Let me finish. Some paths one might take in life require killing. Insane as it might seem, this insanity is sometimes necessary for survival. In fact, killing may be necessary so that good can prevail. It's complicated, to be sure. I won't pretend to fully understand it myself. But that's what leads us to deem killing on the battlefield acceptable.
  • Peri: I don't get it.. You're making me dizzy with all this.
  • Leo: Sorry. As I said, I haven't worked all the implications out myself just yet. We can consider that my homework as we wage our next battle. Hopefully, by the time it's over, I'll be able to explain in greater depth.
  • Peri: All right. I like hearing you talk about this kinda stuff anyway. You're a good guy, Leo! Whatever common decency is, you have loads of it!
  • Leo: Thank you, Peri. I look forward to us jointly learning more as time passes.

S Support Edit

  • Leo: Peri.
  • Peri: What ist it, Lord Leo?
  • Leo: Through the time I've spent observing you and conversing with you... I've come to realize that you require special attention.
  • Peri: I do? Are you worried about me?
  • Leo: Yes, I'm gravely concerned for you. I don't know if someone like you can survive in this world.
  • Peri: Oh, don't you worry about that! I've got lots of practice defending myself!
  • Leo: You are strong, it's true. But there is some opposition even you can't overcome. Many people will not accept your nature.
  • Peri: What nature? What are you talking about?
  • Leo: Your enthusiasm for killing innocents. It will cause you to be widely reviled.
  • Peri: Hmmm...really?
  • Leo: So much so that you may find yourself marked for death as a result.
  • Peri: Huh? Why?
  • Leo: I don't want to see that happen. If you spend the rest of your life with me, I'll do everything I can to prevent it.
  • Peri: Wow, you really want me to stick that close?
  • Leo: That's the only way I can see to fend off these who don't understand you. I want to protect you, Peri. Forever. So... will you marry me?
  • Peri: Lord Leo!
  • Leo: What say you? Will you be my bride?
  • Peri: In a heartbeat! I love you so much!
  • Leo: You do?
  • Peri: Don't worry, Lord Leo! I'll protect you from the bad guys!
  • Leo: Hahah, the arrangement I had in mind was the other way around.
  • Peri: Either way! I'll slaughter all your enemies!
  • Leo: That's sweet of you to say. Thank you, Peri. And I'll do the same for you. If anyone ever grows so enraged at you that they threaten your life... I will kill them before they can lay a hand on you.
  • Peri: Aww, you're so romantic! Heehee!

With Selena Edit

C Support Edit

  • Selena: Woohoo! That was amazing!
  • Leo: Selena, why are you yelling? At this volume, the entire army can hear you!
  • Selena: Good! I'm celebrating! My friends and I just played a great, new game. There's a board with little pieces on it, and whoever claims the most territories wins! Wanna guess who won?
  • Leo: Congratulations on you victor, Selena.
  • Selena: Heh! I know some people would say, "It's just a game." But those people are losers!
  • Leo: This game sound fascinating. Would you show me how to play?
  • Selena: Sure! But don't expect me to go easy on you. I'm on a roll!
  • Leo: You're on!...
  • Selena: WHAT?! How could I lose...?
  • Leo: I thoroughly enjoyed that. you were right about this game. Thank you, Selena.
  • Selena: Grrrrr... Now my whole day is ruined! Why'd you have to beat me?
  • Leo: Calm down. It's just a game. Oh, wait... isn't that what losers say? Heh heh.
  • Selena: Come back here! I demand a rematch!

B Support Edit

  • Selena: Lord Leo! Good. I found you. Do you have time for another game?
  • Leo: Again?! I applaud your persistence, but this will be, let's see...Ah, that's right. It's to be our 15th rematch. Haven't you had enough?
  • Selena: Listen up! We're going to play this game as many times as it takes for me to beat you!
  • Leo: *sigh* Then we're going to be here for a while, aren't we?
  • Selena: What?! Don't say that, milord! Today's the day you're going down!
  • Leo: I know. You say that every time...and yet, here we are.
  • Selena: Today's different! I can feel it. You better focus, 'cuse I'm gonna crush you! Don't hold back, milord. I want you to show me everything you've got!
  • Leo: Fine, but try not to take it too hard when you lose...
  • Selena: No! NO! It can't be!
  • Leo: And yet it is. You lost...again. Selena, you must cease repeating the same action and expecting different results. You do realise that is the definition of insanity, yes? In any case, please excuse me. I have other matters to attend to.
  • Selena: You can't run away like that! Not when I'm SO close to defeating you!
  • Leo: You really can't let this go, can you?
  • Selena: No, I can't! I HATE losing!
  • Leo: Losing graciously is a skill all its own, Selena.
  • Selena: Who likes losing?! It's terrible! Isn't it better to be a winner?
  • Leo: I suppose you have a point. I know. Well, fine. Why don't you take a break to reflect on your upcoming defeat?
  • Selena: Haha, very well.

A Support Edit

  • Selena: Is this really happening right now?! I can't believe it! Quick, somebody pinch me!
  • Leo: You're about to commence your victory dance, aren't you? You won!
  • Selena: I beat Lord Leo! I bead Lord Leo! *gasp* Weait a minute! You didn't go easy on me, did you?
  • Leo: No, I can assure you, I gave it my all. You won fair and square.
  • Selena: Let me just get this straight. You LOST and I WON. Do you wanna repeat that?
  • Leo: Indeed, you are the victor. The winner. The champion. The nonpareil. Satisfied?
  • Selena: Heehee! Yep! I feel amazing.
  • Leo: You should be proud of yourself. You put a lot of effort into your win.
  • Selena: Huh?
  • Leo: Don't be coy. I knew you've been practicing around the clock. You conned all your friends into playing so you could improve your skills.
  • Selena: But h-how did you find out?!
  • Leo: Don't worry. I'm impressed! I didn't expect you to take the game quite so seriously. It's nice to see someone put in such effort even when it's not required.
  • Selena: Thank you, milord.
  • Leo: Then again, that was only one win. I don't fancy losing either. Shall we play again?
  • Selena: Nope! We're done! I'm not playing against you ever again!
  • Leo: What?!
  • Selena: I'm sorry. I never run from a fight, but I can't risk losing. Heehee! I want to end on a good note. See ya, sucker!
  • Leo: How underhanded of you! Get back here! SELENA!

S Support Edit

  • Leo: Selena. I noticed something about you.
  • Selena: Oh? What is it, milord?
  • Leo: You hate losing so much that you absolutely refuse to do it. You try again and again until you prevail. You even browbeat your opponents, bullying them into rematches...You make it sound like some big inconvenience, which it's not!
  • Selena: ...Right? Hmm. Now that I think about it, I did make you play that game A LOT. Are you mad? I'm Really sorry! I never thought about you schedule or---
  • Leo: No, you misunderstand me. I'm not mad in the least. Your competitive spirit is one of the reasons I find you so attractive.
  • Selena: Attractive?! You mean you liked it? I apologize for nothing?
  • Leo: You took possession of all the territories in the game, but that wasn't all you captured. You also stole my heart...
  • Selena: Wha?!
  • Leo: Selena, will you marry me?
  • Selena: Wait...were you about to tell me some more reasons you find me attractive?...Because I'd like to hear those first.
  • Leo: Certainly. For starters, there's your wit---
  • Selena: I'm just kidding! My answer is yes!
  • Leo: Then it's settled. From here on out, you shall be mine, and I yours. In terms you'll appreciate, that makes you my number one girl.
  • Selena: Number one? No deal!
  • Leo: Hm? I thought you would be pleased.
  • Selena: If there's a number one, then there might be a number two or even a number three. I don't want to be your number one, I want to be your ONLY one.
  • Leo: Ah, of course. And that you are. I swear it, Selena. You're the only woman for me.
  • Selena: Woohoo! I really am on a roll!

With Beruka Edit

C SupportEdit

  • Leo: Hello, Beruka. Something has been bothering me a while, and I was hoping to ask you about it...
  • Beruka: What is it?
  • Leo: Your skills are quite remarkable. Who was it that trained you?
  • Beruka: A person I met in the slums. Another assassin.
  • Leo: Based on what I've seen, your teacher must have had considerable skill. What was his or her name?
  • Beruka: An excellent question. However, I do not know the answer.
  • Leo: Pardon? How do you not know the name of the person who trained you?
  • Beruka: I was only taught the art of assassination. Nothing else was important.
  • Leo: Very well... Do you know where your old teacher is now?
  • Beruka: Dead and buried. By my hand.
  • Leo: You killed your teacher?! Why?
  • Beruka: He was the target for a contract I accepted, simple as that.
  • Leo: I don't know what to say...

B SupportEdit

  • Leo: Hello, Beruka. Sorry for the intrusion, but I can't stop wondering why you killed your teacher...
  • Beruka: Why does it concern you?
  • Leo: I'm curious, that's all. I want to learn what kind of person you are.
  • Beruka: It is as I said before: I accepted a contract to kill my teacher, so I did.
  • Leo: Do you always carry out a contract, even when the target is someone you know?
  • Beruka: I do. The subject of any contract is just another target to me.
  • Leo: Was there no way you could refuse the contract to kill your teacher?
  • Beruka: I could have, but I had no reason to.
  • Leo: Oh, I see. You hated your teacher, then?
  • Beruka: We had no problems between us.
  • Leo: Then...I still don't understand. How can you be so calm about this?
  • Beruka: You are factoring in emotion. You can't do that when you take on a contract. And once a contract is over, you have to forget about it. That was the final lesson that my teacher gave to me.
  • Leo: That seems very...cold.
  • Beruka: Is it? Before, I would kill someone if I accepted a contract. Today, if Lady Camilla ordered it, I would kill someone without hesitation. Nothing has really changed.
  • Leo: So if you got an assignment today to kill someone, it wouldn't matter who they are? Even if they were a friend or ally?
  • Beruka: If I accepted the contract... You're right, it wouldn't matter.
  • Leo: That is...most unsettling.

A SupportEdit

  • Leo: Oh, Beruka. I didn't see you there...
  • Beruka: Have you been avoiding me, milord?
  • Leo: What do you mean?
  • Beruka: Exactly what I said. You seem to be going out of your way to not be around me.
  • Leo: I suppose I have been, yes. It's difficult to trust someone that you know could change sides in an instant. If you accepted an assignment, you would try to kill that person right away, right?
  • Beruka: That is how it works, yes.
  • Leo: So I thought. Even so, I'm only wary of you. I feel no fear in your presence.
  • Beruka: I don't understand. Why not?
  • Leo: Well, you serve my sister Camilla, who I'm certain would never order my death.
  • Beruka: Another person could give the order. Never assume something is impossible.
  • Leo: This is true... Even so, I still don't fear you. It's a waste of time to overly concern myself with unlikely events. There are undoubtedly those who already want me dead, so I'll worry about them.
  • Beruka: Ignoring potential threats can get you killed.
  • Leo: You really want me to be afraid, don't you?
  • Beruka: Perhaps.
  • Leo: Well, so long as you're my ally, I have nothing to fear from you. You'll fight with me and help defeat those who stand against me.
  • Beruka: You are correct.

S SupportEdit

  • Leo: Beruka, I was wondering... Is there anyone that you think you'd be unable to kill?
  • Beruka: Hmmm... Of course, anyone stronger than me would prove impossible to defeat.
  • Leo: Sorry, I meant...anyone you wouldn't be able to kill for sentimental reasons.
  • Beruka: Oh. No.
  • Leo: Ah, I see...
  • Beruka: Why do you ask, milord?
  • Leo: Because you said you'd kill anyone you were ordered to, no matter who they were.
  • Beruka: That is correct.
  • Leo: But, what if that person was more to you than just someone you knew?
  • Beruka: I don't understand.
  • Leo: What if you were told to kill a family member? Would you be capable of following that order?
  • Beruka: I...I don't know. I've never had family.
  • Leo: You've lived your whole life without loving someone or being loved?
  • Beruka: That...is correct, milord.
  • Leo: Then it's possible, if you felt what it was like to be loved... you'd be unable to bring yourself to kill such a person.
  • Beruka: Lord Leo, what are you trying to say?
  • Leo: Beruka... I'm in love with you. I want to show you what love is.
  • Beruka: I don't know what to say... You truly love me?
  • Leo: With all my heart, yes.
  • Beruka: I've never felt the feeling described as love. I don't have any idea what it is. But hearing your words... I have this strange, slight warmth in my chest... Is this what it feels like? I'm not certain I like it. But I may.
  • Leo: There is no need to rush this, Beruka. This is a new and unique feeling for you. Please take your time getting used to it.
  • Beruka: No need. I can tell already that I wish to be with you, Lord Leo.
  • Leo: Truly? That is delightful! I wish to be with you as well, Beruka. From this day forward, we'll both live for each other!

With Nyx Edit

C Support Edit

  • Nyx: ...
  • Leo: Nyx? What on earth...
  • Nyx: Greetings, Prince Leo.
  • Leo: If you walk any further into that lake, you'll be up to your stomach. You're not planning to take a swim, are you?
  • Nyx: Hmhm. If I were, would you come into the water with me?
  • Leo: N-no, I'll pass.
  • Nyx: I was joking anyway. But no. I came to view my reflection in the lake's waters.
  • Leo: That's all? We have mirrors at camp for that.
  • Nyx: Mirrors are too accurate. I prefer a slight amount of distortion. The water's surface is perfect.
  • Leo: ...All right, then. Try not to stay out too long. It can get cold here by the shore.
  • Nyx: Hmhmhm. I'd best put the rest of my clothes back on before that happens, hm?
  • Leo: Y-yes. I'll...leave you to that.

B Support Edit

  • Leo: I thought I might find you here, Nyx.
  • Nyx: Hello again, Prince Leo.
  • Leo: I'm relieved to find you fully clothed this time.
  • Nyx: Hmhm. Yes, you arrived just in time. Or are you early...?
  • Leo: Ehem, the point is, exposing yourself in that way would have been dangerous. Were you looking at your reflection again?
  • Nyx: Yes, I was. I'm still not used to it. Even after decades in this body.
  • Leo: ...
  • Nyx: My image of myself, and the way I actually am... The gulf between them never seems to shrink. Indeed, as the years pass, it only widens.
  • Leo: Is there no way to lift the curse?
  • Nyx: So you know, then...that it is a curse.
  • Leo: Yes, I've heard some things.
  • Nyx: The curse on me is an extremely potent one. I don't think it has a remedy. But even if it did... I might have to remain in this form regardless.
  • Leo: Why?
  • Nyx: Because this condition is a punishment. I was too young...too foolish...
  • Leo: It's an ineffective sentence that lasts indefinitely, wouldn't you say? Even the harshest judge usually allows for the possibility of atonement. But that's up to whoever placed the curse on you, I suppose...
  • Nyx: ...
  • Leo: Who did this to you, Nyx?
  • Nyx: ...Good day to you, Prince Leo.
  • Leo: !!

A Support Edit

  • Nyx: Prince Leo...
  • Leo: Yes, Nyx?
  • Nyx: You asked me not long ago who laid the curse on me.
  • Leo: Yes, I recall.
  • Nyx: It may be myself.
  • Leo: ...Care to explain?
  • Nyx: Long ago, when I was young, I discovered I had a gift for the dark arts. Such power in the hands of a child, as you can imagine, lead to the deaths of many. Until one day... One of the spells I wove took its toll, preventing me from maturing further.
  • Leo: Ah, so that's how it came to be.
  • Nyx: I was crazed at first, desperate to find a way to break the curse's hold over me. But as time went on...I started to wonder if I deserved this form.
  • Leo: ...
  • Nyx: Honestly, even this doesn't seem like sufficient punishment for my actions.
  • Leo: ... Close your eyes, Nyx.
  • Nyx: Why?
  • Leo: I wish to use my own magic on you. I'd like to try speaking to your inner self. The one inside your heart.
  • Nyx: Prince Leo...
  • Leo: I disagree with you. I think your punishment has been more than sufficient. And I'd say it's time you changed your perspective a bit.
  • Nyx: I have...misgivings about this...
  • Leo: I doubt it will be easy. You're quite set in your ways by now, after all. But setting your punishment aside for a moment... Let us both consider the matured, adult Nyx of your own self-image. Would she not forgive you? Would she not allow at least for the possibility? If you'll allow me, I'd like to speak to her one day and find out.
  • Nyx: Prince Leo... You've given me much to think about. I'm not sure about that idea of yours, but thank you for your concern. You are...a good friend. If I may call you that.
  • Leo: You man. Please remember that I'm always here for you, Nyx.

S Support Edit

  • Leo: Nyx? Are your eyes closed?
  • Nyx: Yes...
  • Leo: What can you see now?
  • Nyx: My adult self... She is speaking with you... On the shores of the lake... She seems contented...
  • Leo: Does she now...
  • Nyx: And you? What do you see?
  • Leo: It's something slightly different.
  • Nyx: Do tell...
  • Leo: I, too, see us standing at the lake's shore carrying on a conversation. But the Nyx I see has the body of a child...
  • Nyx: ...
  • Leo: Next to that Nyx, I see myself, beaming with joy. The young Nyx has a contented look on her face as well. In between us is a third figure, that of a very small child.
  • Nyx: A child?
  • Leo: Yes. Our child...
  • Nyx: ... I don't care for your sense of humor, Prince Leo. Whatever I might look like, my heart is that of a fully grown woman. It is not to be trifled with.
  • Leo: That was not my intention. Now, Nyx, open your eyes.
  • Nyx: Prince Leo! Is this...a ring...?
  • Leo: Nyx, I want you to marry me.
  • Nyx: ...
  • Leo: I mean that. I want to start a happy, loving family with you.
  • Nyx: It's impossible. I'm stuck like this... forever... What I did was unforgivable. And even if it wasn't, my curse cannot be lifted...
  • Leo: None of that bothers me. I accept you just as you are---as you always will be.
  • Nyx: Prince Leo...
  • Leo: So will you marry me?
  • Nyx: ...Very well. Thank you, my prince.

With Charlotte Edit

C Support Edit

  • Charlotte: Lord Leo! Hello!
  • Leo: Hello, Charlotte. Do you need something from me?
  • Charlotte: Not from you, milord! Actually, I made a lunch for you. Would you like to try it?
  • Leo: I'm sorry, but I just ate a little while ago.
  • Charlotte: You did? Oh, that's a shame... Ah, I know! Would you be interested in some tea, then? I make a delicious cup!
  • Leo: I'm not all that thirsty right now, thanks.
  • Charlotte: Really? Well, I guess that's OK...
  • Leo: ...
  • Charlotte: Am I bothering you, milord?
  • Leo: You are, in fact. I'm trying to think on a few things, so it would be helpful if you let me be.
  • Charlotte: Understood... If you need anything—anything at all—let me know if I can help. I'm always happy to help you!
  • Leo: Right. Thank you.

B Support Edit

  • Charlotte: Oh, Lord Leeeeeeeoooo! What are you up to at the moment?
  • Leo: I'm reviewing the strengths and weaknesses of our army. It's best to have effective strategies before entering the battlefield.
  • Charlotte: Teehee, that sounds right up your alley!
  • Leo: I learned something interesting as I was reading these reports... You're an incredibly strong woman, aren't you?
  • Charlotte: What?! M-milord, that question seems rather... um... personal?
  • Leo: I'm correct though, yes? These reports all say the same thing.
  • Charlotte: It must be a coincidence... I mean... you know me. I'm the kind of girl who likes someone strong to protect her. Everyone is rushing to my aid on the battlefield.
  • Leo: Just going off these reports, you should be able to look after yourself... Could all of these really be wrong?
  • Charlotte: They must be, milord. I'm so very scared of danger on the battlefield...
  • Leo: If that's true, then all of these reports need to be adjusted...
  • Charlotte: Geez, why can't you just accept it and move on to something else?!
  • Leo: What the?!
  • Charlotte: Listen, I actually am really strong, OK? I don't want the men in camp to catch on, ya hear? They'd avoid me if the knew. No one will be nice to me or offer to care for me if they think I can handle myself.
  • Leo: That... makes a lot of this make more sense.
  • Charlotte: What? No, I mean... Um... That was a little performance, just now. All an act! Convincing, huh? It's not ready yet, though, so... um... don't tell anyone about it, OK? I want it to be a surprise... Or something.
  • Leo: ...
  • Charlotte: I'm sorry. I'll excuse myself now. Teehee!

(Charlotte leaves)

  • Leo: ...So that's the real Charlotte.

A Support Edit

  • Leo: Charlotte, there is no need for you to conceal how strong you really are.
  • Charlotte: Pardon me, milord? I don't know what you're talking about...
  • Leo: I want you to make use of all you strength. I don't have a need for soldiers that aren't doing everything they can.
  • Charlotte: B-but I...
  • Leo: Are you really that afraid that the other men will flee from you?
  • Charlotte: ...Yes. I am.
  • Leo: Hmm. Sadly, I can't say that's unfounded. There are still plenty of men with illusions about how women should be.
  • Charlotte: Trust me, I know.
  • Leo: But can we agree that there are also men who don't hold that opinion?
  • Charlotte: ...
  • Leo: I promise to judge you fairly, Charlotte.
  • Charlotte: What do you mean?
  • Leo: You have the drive to get far in our ranks, and you're clearly a capable actor. I can't ignore talents like yours.
  • Charlotte: Lord Leo...
  • Leo: So from now on, use your strength to the benefit of myself and this army. Hide nothing from me.
  • Charlotte: Heehee, understood. I will do anything I can to help you milord. But... around the others in the army... I will continue to act as I always have. I still believe it would be easier.
  • Leo: It's a start, at least.

S Support Edit

  • Leo: Charlotte.
  • Charlotte: Lord Leo? Did you need something from me?
  • Leo: If this seems very sudden, please control your surprise.
  • Charlotte: Actually, could I ask you something first?
  • Leo: Very well...
  • Charlotte: I've been stressing about this for sometime, but I wanted to ask you... Do you think we have a future together? I know it's sudden! And random! But I had to ask you or I'd go insane!
  • Leo: ... Charlotte that's exactly why I came to see you today.
  • Charlotte: Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?!
  • Leo: Hah, I still surprised you after all. I'm serious though. Both your act and the strength you hide behind it have won me over. I had to say something. I had to say that I love you.
  • Charlotte: You... Lord Leo... You love me back?
  • Leo: Yes, I believe there is a future for us. More than that, I think we should wed.
  • Charlotte: I... always dreamed of marrying into wealth.
  • Leo: Really? Well... You truly are bluntly honest, aren't you?
  • Charlotte: I would never want to lie to you. Marrying someone with money would mean being able to provide for my family. I could ease their lives so much. That's why I've always dreamed of riches.
  • Leo: ...
  • Charlotte: Then I met you, Lord Leo, and I fell in love with you. I'm truly happy that we both feel so strongly for each other! But... I cannot accept your proposal.
  • Leo: What?! I don't understand.
  • Charlotte: It just dawned on me that I'm not sure if my feelings for you are pure...or if they're only present because of my riches-filled dreams with you.
  • Leo: You think you only love me for my money? And out of concern for me, you don't want to accidentally hurt me if that's true?
  • Charlotte: ... Well, yes. I'm so sorry. I'm really the worst.
  • Leo: That you feel that way is proof enough for me that your love is real.
  • Charlotte: Huh? It is?
  • Leo: It doesn't matter to me if that's how you originally came to like me. What's important is that you genuinely care for me now.
  • Charlotte: That makes a lot of sense! I am in love with you, Lord Leo... I'm so happy!
  • Leo: As am I, Charlotte. As am I.

With Hinoka Edit

C Support Edit

  • Hinoka: Hah! Hai-yah!
  • Leo: Now that I've seen your commitment to your training... I can understand how your battle prowess became so well known.
  • Hinoka: Prince Leo? I'm sorry, I didn't know you were watching.
  • Leo: No problem, Princess Hinoka. It's quite interesting to see how both you and Prince Ryoma train. It's no surprise that you were both able to turn the tide of a battle on your own. I used to consider you both incredibly dangerous as enemies... It's reassuring now to have such strong comrades to fight alongside.
  • Hinoka: Prince Leo, I think you're exaggerating our skill just a little bit...
  • Leo: That is unlikely—the power you wield is undeniable. My only critique would be that your style is difficult to build a strategy around.
  • Hinoka: I don't understand what you mean.
  • Leo: I'm having trouble creating a plan that accounts for your aggressive attitude. Since you charge the enemy head-on, it'd be best to have a plan that supports you. But I find it hard to predict how you will behave when battle begins.
  • Hinoka: Ahhh. Heh, I see what you're saying. A gifted stategist like yourself would be concerned with how things look on paper. I'm more concerned with how strong I am when steel meets steel. I'll leave you to your board-game strategies.
  • Leo: ...

B Support Edit

  • Leo: Princess Hinoka... I've been thinking more about the way you fight. I've concluded that it is far too reckless.
  • Hinoka: Thanks for your thoughts, but I don't need any advice from you. I'll fight how I please.
  • Leo: I must ask, though... As a princess and one of the leaders of Hoshido, why fight so dangerously? There must be ways to fight that don't constantly put you in danger.
  • Hinoka: I'm sure there are, but none of those ways are how I prefer to fight. I won't sneak about, attempting to deceive or outflank my foe. Just give me my weapon and point me in the right direction. I'll meet them head-on.
  • Leo: Perhaps you'd consider following a plan I've come up with, then? It accounts for your crazy charges by shifting troops to support and protect you. It has no downside, so you'd have to have a really good reason to refuse...
  • Hinoka: I'll follow your strategy if the situation calls for it. But the only thing I put my faith in is my own power. It's just my nature. It doesn't matter how many troops I've got supporting me.
  • Leo: Really? I'm actually a little surprised by that.
  • Hinoka: How do you mean?
  • Leo: From what I've seen, many of your retainers and subordinates put all their faith in you. But you in turn only trust in your own capabilities...
  • Hinoka: ...
  • Leo: You can't possibly believe that you can win this war all by yourself.
  • Hinoka: I don't...
  • Leo: Hrm. I apologize if I spoke out of line. Please excuse me, Princess Hinoka.
  • (Leo leaves)
  • Hinoka: I don't know what to make of you...

A Support Edit

  • Hinoka: Prince Leo...
  • Leo: Hello, Princess Hinoka.
  • Hinoka: Do you remember what you said to me the other day?
  • Leo: You mean about you trying to win the war all by yourself?
  • Hinoka: Yes. But... It's not my intention to fight alone. I'm aware that the people who fight at my side have put their faith in me. It isn't that I choose not to trust in those people. It's not that at all. But I can only know my own limits. I can't be sure of other people's.
  • Leo: What are you saying, Princess Hinoka?
  • Hinoka: I'm saying that I'm afraid of depending on other people too much. That's why I prefer to fight alone.
  • Leo: But isn't part of the reason for having retainers so that you can depend on them?
  • Hinoka: It is, and in day-to-day events, or for minor tasks, I can depend on them. But when Ithink about the idea of ordering someone into harm's way... I couldn't bear to do that, so instead I take on those duties myself.
  • Leo: In other words, you'd sooner put yourself in danger than someone else.
  • Hinoka: Yes... Is that really such a fault?
  • Leo: Not in the least. On the contrary, it's a rather noble mind-set. It also explains why people put such trust in you—they believe you'll protect them.
  • Hinoka: Having them around to protect does drive me to be stronger... Prince Leo, I apologize that my style makes it difficult to plan tactics.
  • Leo: Now that I've thought about it, it doesn't seem like as big a problem... You've actually motivated and encouraged me to fight by your side as well.
  • Hinoka: R-really?! Well, I'm glad to hear it, Prince Leo!

S Support Edit

  • Leo: Hey, Princess Hinoka. I apologize if this seems incredibly random... But have you given much thought to relationships?
  • Hinoka: P-Prince Leo! Why are you bringing this up all of a sudden?! Anyway, aren't we all incredibly busy? It seems there are other things to focus on...
  • Leo: There is no reason that love should fall by the wayside, even in times of war.
  • Hinoka: There is some truth to that, I'll admit...
  • Leo: I'm sorry if this seems rude, but you have not answered my question...
  • Hinoka: If you're going to be so persistent... W-well... I am human... Of course I've thought about relationships. Who hasn't? But even if there was someone I was in love with... I couldn't risk confessing my feelings and then losing him in battle.
  • Leo: I understand what you're saying, but I feel a little differently... I don't think I can afford to risk losing the woman I love without admitting my feelings.
  • Hinoka: What are you trying to say?!
  • Leo: Princess Hinoka, I am in love with you. I'm telling you this because I want to know if you feel the same.
  • Hinoka: You...you love me... Is this really true? You aren't messing with me, are you? This isn't some brand of Nohrian humor?
  • Leo: I promise you, I'm not making any sort of joke. I adore you from the depths of my soul. I've felt drawn to you for a while, but when you said you'd risk yourself before others... Well, your courage and kindness won my heart.
  • Hinoka: Prince Leo... I love you too. But wouldn't a relationship between us be difficult, since we're both royalty? I'm sure there's some complicated process for royals to become involved... And an even more complex one for royals from kingdoms at war!
  • Leo: That may be true, but I won't let it hold me back if you won't. What do you say, Hinoka?
  • Hinoka: ...You know that this wouldn't change how I am, on or off the battlefield? I'll still drive forward into the enemy, still risk myself before I risk my friends... If you can accept that, then...
  • Leo: If that's all you wish, then I'd gladly relent. I know what kind of person I fell for. Though I won't stop forming strategies that offer you support in battle.
  • Hinoka: Heh... I wouldn't have it any other way.

With Takumi Edit

C Support Edit

  • Takumi: Ah. So if it isn't Prince Leo of Nohr!
  • Leo: And you must be Prince Takumi of Hoshido. I'm pleased to make your acquaintance.
  • Takumi: Ha!
  • Leo: We might as well get this out of the way. You and I are not going to be friends.
  • Takumi: What a coincidence! I was just thinking the same thing.
  • Leo: Of course you were. You have such an arrogant attitude and—
  • Takumi: Me?! I'm not the one going around patronizing everybody! You're the jerk!
  • Leo: Is that the best you can do? You sound like a whiny, little brat. Just as expected. Let's make a deal. You stay away from me, and I'll stay away from you. Think you can manage?
  • Takumi: Hmph! I'm not going to let you boss me around like that! Good-bye!

(Takumi leaves)

  • Leo: Insufferable. Truly insufferable.

B Support Edit

  • Leo: I can't believe they said that to me. I have nothing in common with that imbecile! Just because Takumi and I are both royalty doesn't mean we're anything alike. Ugh!
  • Takumi: Muttering to yourself, Prince Leo? What's the matter, couldn't find anyone else willing to talk to you?
  • Leo: You! I didn't know you were there. Why were you eavesdropping?
  • Takumi: Well, it all sounded a bit too familiar. It seems that we'll both be hearing that same joke for a while.
  • Leo: They're calling us "the twins"! We can't let them treat us this way! They're wrong!
  • Takumi: Of course they are! You and I couldn't be more different!
  • Leo: Exactly! I wouldn't come near you with a ten-foot pole.
  • Takumi: Twenty-foot pole!
  • Leo: Thirty, even! ...Hey, since you're here, may I ask you something? What's your favorite food?
  • Takumi: I'm sorry, but what?!
  • Leo: They say that people with similar personalities like the same things.
  • Takumi: I like miso soup.
  • Leo: Mee-so soup?
  • Takumi: Yeah. It's a Hoshidan dish. You got a problem with that?
  • Leo: No. My favorite food is beef stew. It's kind of like a soup. Hmm...
  • Takumi: What kind of books do you read?
  • Leo: I read all kinds of things, but I have a passion for history.
  • Takumi: Is it...because you love to study the strategy behind past battles?
  • Leo: Gods, don't tell me... Do you like to read history books too?
  • Takumi: Yes, but I'm sure our hobbies are different.
  • Leo: My favorite game is chess. It's a tactical board game where—
  • Takumi: In Hoshido, our version is called shogi.
  • Leo: And do you like to play this "show-gee" thing?
  • Takumi: I'm the best shogi player in my whole family.
  • Leo: I can't believe it. Who would have guessed we have so much in common?
  • Takumi: I don't know, but I'll tell you—it's hard to hate someone with such excellent taste!
  • Leo: No kidding. I was about to say the exact same thing. Hmm... Maybe we should do this again sometime.
  • Takumi: Ahaha! Oh? So now you want to be best friends?
  • Leo: Ha! Of course not. That will never happen.
  • Takumi: Never!

A Support Edit

  • Leo: Did you enjoy the book I lent you?
  • Takumi: It was fascinating! I started reading it last night and stayed up way too late!
  • Leo: That always happens to me! Thank you so much for sharing your mee-so soup recipe with me. It turned out great!
  • Takumi: Isn't it good? I'm glad you liked it. Next time, you can show me how to make stew.
  • Leo: Of course! ...Do you think we should finally admit what's going on here? We're friends.
  • Takumi: Haha! If you'd told me that a while ago, I'd have sworn up and down it wasn't true. But you're right! Against all odds, you and I are buddies. Isn't that crazy?!
  • Leo: It's certainly unexpected. But now we have a chance to change things for good. Our friendship may be the beginning of a lasting bond between Hoshido and Nohr.
  • Takumi: I hope so! We're proof that citizens from our two countries can get along! You've made me realize that peace between Hoshido and Nohr may be possible after all.
  • Leo: Perhaps. And if things go badly, we can commiserate over soup.
  • Takumi: I'm not sure how that will help, but it will at least taste good. Haha! This won't be easy, but we're in it together, Leo!
  • Leo: That's right. I've got your back, Takumi.

With Sakura Edit

C Support Edit

  • Sakura: Oh, h-hello, Leo. Are you headed to today's war council meeting?
  • Leo: Yes, I am. Will you be joining us?
  • Sakura: No, I...I wouldn't be of any help. I hate discussing how to d-defeat people...
  • Leo: I see. So we're all getting together to do something you hate.
  • Sakura: I'm s-sorry... I didn't mean it like that.
  • Leo: It's true, though, despite how you meant it. War meetings are for creating strategies and deciding how to best our enemies. I can see how that would be troubling to someone who loathes violence, as you do. Unfortunately, if we don't do it, then our own soldiers will end up hurt.
  • Sakura: Y-yes, I understand that...but...
  • Leo: Lady Sakura, you're simply not cut out for the battlefield. It's all too clear. You should stay out of harm's way and pray for the war to end quickly. A gentle person like you isn't cut out for this life.
  • Sakura: ...!

B Support Edit

  • Sakura: Leo, m-may I have a word?
  • Leo: Hello, Princess Sakura. What can I do for you?
  • Sakura: Are you having another meeting of the war council soon? If so...I'd like to j-join you.
  • Leo: You? In the war council?
  • Sakura: Yes... If th-that's OK.
  • Leo: You yourself said that you're unable to contribute to our discussions. Why would I subject you to something you despise? There's no benefit to be gained.
  • Sakura: Yes... It's true. I DID say that.
  • Leo: Then why would you join us? You should put it from your mind. You're very empathetic. You feel the pain of others more acutely than most. Even if you did tag along, doing so would only cause you undue suffering.
  • Sakura: B-but I need to know what's going on! The more I know, the better I'll be able to help our soldiers when a battle's over.
  • Leo: Ah, so there it is. Your aim is to help those who fall on the battlefield.
  • Sakura: If I know how many injuries to expect, I'll be better prepared.
  • Leo: I finally understand. Your logic is most sound. In that case, your presence would be much appreciated.
  • Sakura: Th-thank you so much, Prince Leo!

A Support Edit

  • Leo: I must thank you for your participation in the war meeting, Princess Sakura. Thanks to you, efforts to help the injured in our last battle were greatly expedited.
  • Sakura: Thank you...but it wasn't just me. It was all of us working t-together.
  • Leo: I urge you to accept my gratitude, as well as my apology. I was wrong to say that you weren't suited for the battlefield. You've proven yourself a capable soldier in your own right.
  • Sakura: Well, I still don't like it. Hurting others and being hurt back and all that... I wish the war would just stop, but I can't just close my eyes and hope it passes!
  • Leo: Princess Sakura... You're a strong lady. You clearly experience severe anxiety and fear, let you never let it overcome you. Instead, you find something you can do to help and you do it with all your heart.
  • Sakura: Th-thank you, Leo.
  • Leo: I believe I'll be relying on you more and more in the future, Princess Sakura. You are a truly capable ally.
  • Sakura: Oh! Th-thank you! I think I'd like that...

S Support Edit

  • Leo: Princess Sakura... May I have a word?
  • Sakura: Hi, Leo! Um, m-may I ask why you're looking at me like that? You're making me nervous!
  • Leo: ...
  • Sakura: Oh dear! Please say something before I explode!
  • Leo: Princess Sakura, there's something I must tell you. I've been...truly impressed by your efforts in our war meetings recently. You're always thinking about how to help others, and never about yourself. I hope your kind heart never changes... In fact, I wish to protect it.
  • Sakura: Don't worry about me, Leo! I promise, I won't let the war change me.
  • Leo: I'm glad to hear it, but that's not exactly what I meant.
  • Sakura: Oh?
  • Leo: Seeing such kindness inspired something in me. Feelings I never thought I'd have. Feelings...of love. For you.
  • Sakura: For m-m-me?!
  • Leo: You have such a sweet heart, so full of understated strength. There's no one else like you. I need to have you by my side, Sakura. That is...if you feel the same.
  • Sakura: Oh, Leo... I d-don't know what to say! To be honest, I feel the same way about you...b-but you're so brave and noble! I'm not sure I'm a good match for you...
  • Leo: That simply isn't true. And I'm willing to spend the rest of my life proving it to you.
  • Sakura: The rest of your life?
  • Leo: Yes, Sakura. But we can start with a stroll. We could walk hand in hand... We could even speak of...happier things.
  • Sakura: Oh? Like what?
  • Leo: Things like...the peace I feel when I'm near you. See? Now, you're blushing...
  • Sakura: Th-that's because...that sounds like the best idea I've ever heard. I want to be with you forever, Leo, and learn all about this side of you!
  • Leo: As you wish, Sakura. Ever as you wish.

With Kana (Son) Edit

C Support Edit

  • Kana: Hey, Papa. Can I talk to you about something?
  • Leo: Of course, Kana. What is it?
  • Kana: It's Mama... I feel like she's always treating me like a child.
  • Leo: This is only natural. You're her son. And, moreover, you ARE a child.
  • Kana: I know, I know. I just mean I'm not as little 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.
  • Leo: Ah, I see. You want some responsibilities of your own.
  • Kana: Yeah! I want to show her she can rely on me. I wonder if there's anything I could do for her...
  • Leo: Hmm... Well, in my case, I try to help her with her studies when we both have the time.
  • Kana: And that makes her happy?
  • Leo: Oh gods, yes. She is very passionate about learning.
  • Kana: Oh.
  • Leo: Hm? What's wrong?
  • Kana: I don't think I could help Mama with studying...
  • Leo: Ah. Yes. I see how that would be a problem.
  • Kana: Oh, I know! Let's have a contest, Papa!
  • Leo: 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 Mama thanks the most wins!
  • Leo: A father-son competition, hm? Intriguing. Very well. I accept.
  • Kana: Really? Yay!
  • Leo: But remember: I'm your mother's husband. I know her heart better than anyone. And if the goal is to make her happy, I will not pull punches, even for you.
  • Kana: That's fine by me, Papa! I'm gonna beat you fair and square!
  • Leo: Good! Then may the best man win.

B Support Edit

  • Kana: Hey, Papa! I've been making a ton of progress in our contest! How about you?
  • Leo: Well, I haven't done anything too special yet, but she's thanked me many times. I have a tally here. Shall we count them?
  • Kana: WOW! That's so many!
  • Leo: Yes. I imagine this is not so abnormal for a doting husband and a loving wife though.
  • Kana: Hmph... Well, I'm still not going to lose! Here, see! I recorded all mine too! And the total is... um...
  • Leo: What?! You got the same number as me!
  • Kana: I did? I did! Haha! I'm definitely gonna win this thing, Papa! I don't even have to work, so I can spend all day doing things for her.
  • Leo: Ah, so that's your secret. And how exactly have you been helping her?
  • Kana: Mostly I've been trying to help around camp! I spend each morning making arrows for the archers. Then, at lunch, I slice the bear meat and hand out food to the soldiers. 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 the time!
  • Leo: That's an enormous amount of work for someone your age. I'm impressed. You really have been growing up, haven't you?
  • Kana: Huh?
  • Leo: Oh, just a thought. It wasn't too long ago you were still in swaddling clothes. Now, all of sudden, you're making real, important contributions to the army. Perhaps I've been treating you 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!
  • Leo: I believe it. I bet your mother has been very proud of all your hard work.
  • Kana: I hope so! And I'm gonna make her even prouder tomorrow!
  • Leo: Hm. Perhaps this will be more challenging than I thought.

A Support Edit

  • Kana: *grumble*
  • Leo: Hello, Kana.
  • Kana: Hi, Papa...
  • Leo: What's put you in such a bad mood? I thought you'd still be enjoying 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, but she made me stop. She said I should be spending more time playing around with my friends again. She still thinks I'm just a kid. Haven't I shown her I'm old enough to help around camp?
  • Leo: Ah, so that's it. I wouldn't worry. You've been doing good work, I promise.
  • Kana: Then why doesn't she want me helping with anything?
  • Leo: I think your mother knows full well you're capable of handling such things. But seeing you acting so grown up makes her feel sad.
  • Kana: Huh? Why?
  • Leo: She doesn't want to lose her baby boy. She's very, very proud you're growing up and working so hard. But at the same time, she's worried it means you won't need her anymore. It's a little silly, but it's true. Parents can be funny like that sometimes.
  • Kana: So... what should I do?
  • Leo: I would say to keep helping out around camp, but don't work yourself so hard. Make time to see your friends, play games, go on adventures, and the like. And try to spend some quality time with your mother every now and then. Think you can handle that?
  • Kana: But...
  • Leo: 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 is for babies.
  • Leo: 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...
  • Leo: We know that you're growing up and that you want more responsibilities. And we know that you're going to be a fine young man someday. But for now... relax. Don't try to grow up so quickly. Trust me on that one.
  • Kana: Thanks, Papa. I'll think real hard about what you said.
  • Leo: Good boy. You know... I think it would be nice if you spent the night in with your mother. I'll go talk to her about it.
  • Kana: Wait! What about you?
  • Leo: Me? No, I've got too much work to—
  • Kana: But, Papa! I thought you wanted me to enjoy my childhood. It wouldn't be much of a childhood without a papa...
  • Leo: Well, when you put it like that, I can't really say no, can I?
  • Kana: You really can't! I'll go tell Mama about our plans!
  • Leo: Sometimes I'm not sure which of us is in charge around here... Heh. It seems I still have much to learn from our little Kana...

With Shigure (Son) Edit

C Support Edit

  • Leo: Painting again, Shigure?
  • Shigure: Hello, Father. Sorry, I didn't hear you come in. I know this is no time for artwork, since we're at war and all.
  • Leo: Son, I didn't come here to criticize you. In fact, I think your talent is a rare gift. But considering that we're in the middle of a war, you can't focus solely on art. Granted, I wish you could. It's clearly a wonderful use of your time.
  • Shigure: That's kind of you to say, but I'm not so sure about that.
  • Leo: Don't be so modest. In different times, you would probably be a famous artist. Now that I think about it, I hate to think of you squandering that potential. There must be some way for me to support you...
  • Shigure: What do you mean?
  • Leo: Let me think for a minute... I know just what to do. How would you feel about holding a solo exhibition?
  • Shigure: An exhibition? I could never do that! Besides, our troops are on the advance. The setup alone would be way more work than it's worth.
  • Leo: Why do you say that? I don't foresee any issues there.We'll simply use a spare tent and enlist some villagers to help.
  • Shigure: B-but it seems so vain to reserve a whole tent just for my personal use.
  • Leo: It's obvious that the troops are exhausted from the trials of war. Their fighting spirit is beginning to wane. I believe your exhibition could be a perfect reprieve from their hardship.
  • Shigure: I'm not sure...
  • Leo: Don't you see? An exhibition would benefit our entire community. This show isn't just for you. It's for everybody. If the idea isn't to your liking, I won't force you to do anything. What do you say?
  • Shigure: Ok, fine... We can give it a shot. But I have to admit that it makes me a bit anxious.
  • Leo: Heh, I understand. We should get started right away. I'll head into town to recruit some volunteers.
  • Shigure: Thank you, Father.

B Support Edit

  • Shigure: Hello, Father...
  • LeoThere you are, Shigure. Is something on your mind?
  • Shigure: Well... You've done so much to make this exhibition a possibility. I just wanted to say thanks.
  • Leo: There's no need for that. Honestly, I haven't done all that much. Everything is coming together swiftly due to all the hard work from the villagers. They were galvanized into action because everyone is excited to see your work. You should take pride in your efforts.
  • Shigure: Hmm...
  • Leo: Are you feeling nervous?
  • Shigure: Of course. But mostly I'm concerned about my newest painting. It's just not coming together like I hoped it would.
  • Leo: Is this the one you're painting just for the big occasion? A brand-new work would obviously add prestige to the affair. Unfortunately, we're running out of time. If the painting isn't going well, you my have to finish it after the show.
  • Shigure: I promised myself that I would get it done. So many people have come together to give me this opportunity. and the final piece really unites the show. I have to keep going.
  • Leo: Oh... Well, I understand. Just don't work too hard. If you make yourself ill, all this effort will have been for nothing.
  • Shigure: I'll be sure to take care, Father. Now if you'll excuse me, I should get back to it.
  • Leo: Of course. Do your best, Son.
  • (Shigure leaves)
  • Leo: He sure is fixated on that painting. I wonder how it will turn out...

A Support Edit

  • Leo: The big day has finally arrived. Shigure's exhibition is under way. Time to see how things are going... Wow... What an exceptional crow. There are more people here than I imagined. And from what I'm overhearing, everyone seems to love the art. Heh... Yes, I think it's safe to say that this event is a great success. Wait a minute... Where is Shigure? I don't see him anywhere...
  • Shigure: *pant...pant*
  • Leo: Shigure?! What happened? Why are you only arriving just now? How could you be late for your own show?!
  • Shigure: Sorry about that, Father. I've been up all night working on my painting.
  • Leo: the one that's been causing you so much trouble lately?
  • Shigure: Y-yes, that's the one...
  • Leo: For the gods' sake, don't you remember when I told you not to overdo it? Why are you so fixated on this piece? Aren't there enough canvases here?
  • Shigure: I promised myself that I would complete it, no matter what. I made it because I'm thankful for everything you've done for me.
  • Leo: This painting... It's your mother and me.
  • Shigure: Yes, it's a portrait of you two.
  • Leo: So this is what you've been devoting all your time to?
  • Shigure: Indeed. My love for you and Mother cannot be measured. You brought me into this world. Without you, I never would have been able to paint. So I wanted to put all those feelings into this portrait.
  • Leo: Shigure... You've been acting so nonchalant while keeping this secret from me. I had no idea...
  • Shigure: F-Father... It hurts when you hug me so tightly... Hahaha.
  • Leo: Sorry about that. It's just that you've made me very proud.
  • Shigure: I feel the same way about you, Father.
  • Leo: Heh... Wait a minute. This isn't the time for a heart-to-heart! We have to put this painting on display!
  • Shigure: OK. It's a little embarrassing though...
  • Leo: Why? Because it's personal? Son, it wouldn't be much of an exhibit if the finest painting here wasn't on display! Let's go find the perfect spot for it. You don't really mind, do you?
  • Shigure: No, of course not. I know just where it should go!

With Forrest (Son) Edit

C Support Edit

  • Leo: Forrest? What's this? Are you sewing again?
  • Forrest: Ah! Father! I'm so sorry... Let me clean this up right away.
  • Leo: There's no need to rush. Aren't you still working on that garment?
  • Forrest: I assumed you didn't want to see this. I know you don't approve of me making feminine clothing...
  • Leo: That's not true at all. Don't you enjoy making clothes? I know I've objected in the past, but that was very wrong of me. I don't ever intend to dissuade you from following your passions.
  • Forrest: I...I'm so happy to hear you say that.
  • Leo: Your sewing skills are most impressive. Perhaps you would consider making something special for me?
  • Forrest: Really?! I would love to!
  • Leo: Excellent. Say, when did you start learning to sew?
  • Forrest: A long time ago... It's funny. I was actually inspired because of a compliment you once paid me. When I was little, I ran around the house in a dress. You saw me and said I looked adorable.
  • Leo: Did I really?
  • Forrest: You don't remember? It was a long time ago. I recall that dress so vividly. It was made from white satin, with tons of pink ruffles and soft lace.
  • Leo: Yes... Yes, I remember it now. If memory serves, it was a hand-me-down from Elise. One of her old summer dresses. Initially, she gave it to a girl taking care of you. But you took one look at it and were instantly enamored.
  • Forrest: I was only trying to satisfy my curiosity at first, but then you praised me. That moment meant a great deal to me. I felt elated. And that's when I took an interest in sewing my own clothing.
  • Leo: Hmm... I never knew.
  • Forrest: Granted, I knew other boys didn't wear dresses or skirts... But I didn't care. I wanted elegant gowns and cute accessories! So I kept sewing and sewing, and I progressively improved. And when I put on a dress and looked at myself in the mirror... I felt like a beautiful princess right out of a storybook. This new passion helped me forget all about my loneliness.
  • Leo: Forrest...
  • Forrest: Before I knew it, my closet was filled with gorgeous clothing. I got to a point where I just couldn't stop. I loved making dresses and wearing them. Even if people don't understand and treat me poorly because of it, I won't stop.
  • Leo: I'm so sorry, Forrest. No one should ever have to feel ashamed of who they are. That's the last thing I want for my beloved son...
  • Forrest: No, Father! Please, it's all right. Knowing you understand me is all I need.
  • Leo: I'm glad to hear it. One day, I will be so proud to have you carry on my title.
  • Forrest: It will be my honor. Everything I am now is thanks to you.

B Support Edit

  • Leo: Ah, there you are, Forrest.
  • Forrest: Why hello, Father.
  • Leo: Your mother said I might find you here. Do you come to this church often?
  • Forrest: I like to come where people are fighting. I pray for the soldiers to return home unharmed from the battlefield.
  • Leo: Hmm, I see.
  • Forrest: Did you need me for something?
  • Leo: Do you recall our conversation about you carrying on my title someday? It made me think that perhaps we should discuss the future. Your future.
  • Forrest: What do you mean, Father?
  • Leo: I'm sure you've noticed the tome I carry with me, yes?
  • Forrest: You mean Brynhildr?
  • Leo: Yes, precisely. Someday, this book will be yours.
  • Forrest: What?! Really?
  • Leo: You and I both possess a unique and powerful potential for magic. One day, I believe that you will be able to handle this sacred book. If you can make it your own, I know that—
  • Forrest: Father, wait. May I have some time to think it over first?
  • Leo: Why is that necessary? There should be no room for hesitation. This is the strongest tome in existence.
  • Forrest: That's precisely why I am hesitant. I wish to follow the will of the gods and heal those in need. But Brynhildr can be used very effectively to hurt innocent people. I wouldn't dream of taking on that responsibility without thinking it over.
  • Leo: That's an excellent point...
  • Forrest: All I want to do is be responsible and live up to your expectations, Father. I'm honored that you want me to be your successor one day... But I'm not sure what I want for myself. I hope you're not too disappointed. I just need a bit more time.
  • Leo: Very well. I will respect your wishes. We shall speak soon.
  • Forrest: Thank you, Father.

A Support Edit

  • Leo: Good evening, Forrest. Have you given any more thought about what you'd like to do regarding Brynhildr?
  • Forrest: Yes, I have. But I'm afraid I don't have an answer for you yet.
  • Leo: I see... It's noble that you wish to keep people from harm. I certainly don't want to force the book upon you. However, I think there is another way to look at the situation. Powerful magic is dangerous, but it can also be used to protect people.
  • Forrest: Hm? How do you mean?
  • Leo: There are those who will always wish to take advantage of the weak. History has shown us this time and time again. But a strong defense can repel even the most vicious attack. It can sometimes even prevent fighting altogether. Can we agree on that much?
  • Forrest: Certainly. But fear of one's enemy can also lead to reckless action.
  • Leo: True... It's a double-edged sword. The important thing is to be thoughtful and to wield your power responsibly.
  • Forrest: I suppose that's true.
  • Leo: I have great faith in you, Forrest. In my heart, I know that you would use Brynhildr wisely. Considering your compassionate nature and loving heart... You could do far greater things with this tome than I've ever dreamed of.
  • Forrest: I don't know...
  • Leo: Abusing one's power is a great evil in this world. Possibly the greatest. Since receiving this book, I've always tried to keep that in mind. I've often wondered how best to use it. What actions are permitted. As the heir of Brynhildr, I hope you will do the same someday. Control of the earth, gravity, and life itself will be in your hands.
  • Forrest: Hmm... I don't know if I can handle that responsibility right now. But perhaps eventually, once I've matured a bit more... I do hope you will entrust me with Brynhildr when the time is right. Eventually, I would like to walk the same path as you... I need to reflect on what it truly means to possess incredible power. But I would love to protect people from the devastation of war.
  • Leo: I'm pleased, Forrest. I look forward to when that day comes.
