“I know that parents will do anything for their children... But I also know how it feels when a child loses her parents. This world's got far too many kids who've gone through that. If you stay, you'll be killed or worse. And your child deserves better!”
—Severa convinces Holland to flee and live
In order to recruit Severa, Severa must talk to Holland, a Villager on the northeast portion of the map. Severa is an NPC until she speaks with him and must be protected on her way to him. Once she has spoken to Holland, Severa will join the army and become controllable.
Severa: "...Oh, gods. It's you."
Cordelia: "Have we met? If so, I'm afraid I've quite forgotten."
Severa: "Well, excuse me for being so forgettable!"
Cordelia: "Look, there's no time for this. If you're a friend, speak now. If not, they stay out of Chrom's way or I'll have to cut you down."
Severa: "Chrom, Chrom, Chrom! It's ALWAYS Chrom with you!"
Cordelia: "...I'm sorry?"
Severa: "You should be! And I don't care about your stupid Chrom, so you can just drop it!...I only want to talk to Holland."
Severa: "Yes, Holland! That sad sack over there. Watch my back so I can get to him safely, and then I'll help your stupid army!"
Severa: "Oh, and Holland's not here of his own will, so don't you dare hurt him!"
Chrom: "What's a child doing here?"
Severa: "Child? I'm not a child, you oaf! I'm... Wait, are you the enemy general?"
Chrom: "I don't know. Are we enemies?"
Severa: "You're Chrom, aren't you? You're Lucina's father."
Chrom: "That's right. ...And I suppose you came back here with my daughter?"
Severa: "Oh, good. Now I won't have to waste time explaining the situation. ...Weird. I didn't think you'd be so funny looking."
Chrom: "You're a real charmer. But charm or not, if you can fight, you're welcome to join our cause."
Severa: "Not the snappiest pick-up line I've heard, but I suppose it gets the job done. But I can't leave until I reclaim my property from Nelson. We'll talk then."
Chrom: "Actually, we're here to take stolen goods back to the village. If I promise to add yours to the list, will that persuade you?"
Severa: "Mmm... Maybe. But you'll have to help my friend Holland, too. He's a bit of a sad sack, but he doesn't want to be here either."
Chrom: "Will he listen to reason?
Severa: "He will if I talk to him. He listens to pretty much whatever I say. Don't worry, he hates Nelson, too. Just be sure not to hurt him."
Chrom: "We'll be careful."
