With Azura (Birthright) Edit

C Support Edit

  • Azura: Hello, Avatar. What brings you here?
  • Avatar: I decided to take a little stroll. This breeze feels so heavenly!
  • Azura: Mmm. Yes! All of that sunshine filtering through the leaves reminds me of Hoshido.
  • Avatar: Haha! I envy you. In Nohr, we didn't have days filled with sunshine!
  • Azura: Oh, Avatar. How stupid of me!
  • Avatar: Huh?
  • Azura: That was thoughtless of me. I never should have brought that up! It should've been you in Hoshido all those years-basking in the sunlight!
  • Avatar: There's no need to feel bad. It's not like you kidnapped me and took me to Nohr!
  • Azura: I know, but I still feel guilty. I lived with the royal family and received all the love that should have been yours.
  • Avatar: Please, Azura, you shouldn't worry. My life hasn't been as hard as you think.
  • Azura: But I lived in Nohr! I know what that was like. It's a cruel place to grow up.
  • Avatar: That's true. Nohr can be a harsh place, but I have happy memories there too.
  • Azura: Really?
  • Avatar: Of course! I was just remembering this one time... Oh, no! I'm late for a meeting! I'm sorry. We'll have to continue this later!
  • Azura: Yes, I'd like that!

B Support Edit

  • Azura: Avatar! I hoped to run into you. I'd like to hear more about your time in Nohr.
  • Avatar: Of course! Well, let's see... I lived in the Northern Fortress. It was pretty remote. Hmm... I wasn't allow to go outside or have any friends.
  • Azura: That sounds terrible!
  • Avatar: Thinking back, it was hard. However, at the time, I never fell lonely. The servants were like family, and my brothers and sisters visited all the time. Elise came by to hang out every single day.
  • Azura: How sweet of her!
  • Avatar: ...And there was a huge library! You'd never run out of books to read in Nohr! Felicia, Jakob, and I even had a little book club. You see? I was too busy to feel alone.
  • Azura: Hmm. The Nohr you describe is so different I remember.
  • Avatar: Well, I spent a lot of time here. It still feels like a part of me...like home.
  • Azura: It almost sounds like you missed it.
  • Avatar: I do. I miss the Northern Fortress. I even miss Castle Krakenburg.
  • Azura: One day, I'm sure you'll get to go back there.
  • Avatar: I hope so, but first, we have to defeat King Garon and end this war for good!

A Support Edit

  • Azura: Avatar, you're always outside, aren't you?
  • Avatar: Haha! I came out here to unwind, but it's so windy!
  • Azura: Yes. I think a storm is coming.
  • Avatar: I haven't seen such a dark cloud since I left Nohr.
  • Azura: You must be thinking about how much you miss it. I see that wistful look on your face. It's hard to believe we lived in the same country. Our experiences were so different. I've listened to your stories, but it's hard to picture anything good happening there.
  • Avatar: I think many Hoshidans feel that way.
  • Azura: That's why we must bridge the gap. We must work together to end this war.
  • Avatar: I agree with you completely. We can't call one place good and another bad.
  • Azura: You and I are linked by fate. It's so coincidence that we're both here. If you and I work as a team, surely we can bring about peace.
  • Avatar: You know I'd do anything to make that happen! We're in this together, Azura.

S Support Edit

  • Avatar: Hello, Azura. Thanks for meeting me here.
  • Azura: This is becoming your favorite spot, isn't it?
  • Avatar: Yes. It seemed like a fitting place to discuss something...uh...important.
  • Azura: Oh, my. You have a serious look on your face. Is everything all right?
  • Avatar: Yes, I'm fine. I've just been thinking about our conversations about Nohr. Even after our talks, I haven't changed your mind about Nohr, have I?
  • Azura: Well, not exactly...
  • Avatar: I realized all of my good memories of Nohr are thanks to a handful of kind people. Without Jakob and Felicia and my brothers and sisters, I would have been miserable.
  • Azura: So you do understand what I'm talking about after all. Nohr can be a cruel place!
  • Avatar: Yes, but no matter what, there are good people in this world who want to help. There are people who will love you no matter what it may cost them. There are people—right here, right now—who want to stand beside you.
  • Azura: Avatar, what are you saying?
  • Avatar: I want to be that person for you! They could throw us in a dark pit, and we'd be fine as long as we're together. I know it.
  • Azura: Avatar, I'm so happy to hear you say that.
  • Avatar: Really?
  • Azura: Yes! Our fates have been intertwined since the beginning. I believe we were always meant to walk through this life together.
  • Avatar: And now the path is bringing us to a peaceful place! I know it is!
  • Azura: I'm sure there will be plenty of sunshine when we get there.
  • Azura: I...I love you too... Please forgive my many faults...and promise to stay with me, forever.

With Azura (Conquest) Edit

C Support Edit

  • Avatar: Oh, no! Ugh!
  • Azura: Avatar? Is that you? What's going on?
  • Avatar: I'm fine! I was getting some water, and I dropped the glass. Be careful! There are broken shards everywhere!
  • Azura: What are you doing up at this hour? You look like you've seen a ghost!
  • Avatar: I-I'm all right. Really. It was just a bad dream.
  • Azura: Goodness! You must have been thrashing about. You're dripping sweat! Poor thing. Here, have a fresh glass of water.
  • Avatar: *gulp* *gulp* ...Ahhh! Thank you, Azura.
  • Azura: Did you want to talk about it? Your nightmare, I mean...
  • Avatar: Nah. It's no big deal.
  • Azura: Hmm. Your decision to side with Nohr is really troubling you, isn't it?
  • Avatar: Seriously, Azura? How do you figure this stuff out? I can't hide anything from you!
  • Azura: Well, I've suspected this for a few days now. You've been looking dejected. Also... There's the hand-wringing and the sighing and that pouty thing you do with your lips.
  • Avatar: All right. All right. I get it! ...the thing is, I know I made the right decision. I put a lot of thought into it. I really believe this is the best way to bring about peace. ...But I have nightmares every night about the Hoshidans I've killed!
  • Azura: Avatar, you knew this path wouldn't be easy when you chose it, right?
  • Avatar: Yes, that's true.
  • Azura: If you believe this path leads to peace, then you have to keep walking down that road.
  • Avatar: You're right. I can't give up just because it's hard. Thanks, Azura.

B Support Edit

  • Avatar: Phew! My patrol is almost done for the night, and everything's nice and quiet. ...Hold up! Did that shadow just move?! *gasp* It's an enemy soldier!
  • Hoshidan: There you are, Avatar...Prince of Nohr! I'll kill you where you stand! GAAH!
  • Avatar: Ha! Nice try, but I'm not going down without a fight!
  • Hoshidan: Ugh! ARGH!
  • Avatar: *pant* *pant*
  • Azura: Avatar! What's going on?! ...Oh, my! Is that a soldier from Hoshido?!
  • Avatar: He slipped through our defenses somehow. Don't worry. He won't be getting back up.
  • Hoshidan: ...Y-you killed my whole family! You and the rest of Nohr! I-I'll never forgive you! Enjoy your life while it lasts! Death and punishment are coming for you! Just wait! Gahaha... Gufffpphh...!
  • Azura: Avatar? Are you all right?
  • Avatar: Yes, I'm fine. I escaped without a scratch.
  • Azura: No, I mean—are YOU all right? That was hard to hear.
  • Avatar: I feel terrible. I robbed him of justice! I didn't want to kill him, but I had no choice!
  • Azura: He doesn't know why you sided with Nohr! Give up and his death will be meaningless.
  • Avatar: It's easy for you to say that. You didn't kill him! Now he'll never avenge his family!
  • Azura: Hmm. I see. In that case, you SHOULD feel terrible.
  • Avatar: Wow. Thanks a lot, Azura.
  • Azura: No, listen... Just because you've chosen this path doesn't mean you have to like it. Get upset. Throw a fit. Cry into your pillow! I'd be worried if his death didn't upset you.
  • Avatar: You're right.
  • Azura: All we can do is keep pressing on. This won't be the last soldier who dies.
  • Avatar: That's why we have to end this thing!
  • Azura: Exactly! Just remember, Avatar... No matter what, I'm right here with you. Whenever you feel lost, I'll try to help you find your way again.
  • Avatar: Thank you, Azura. I don't know what I'd do without you.

A Support Edit

  • Azura: Avatar! *gasp* Oh, thank goodness! I found you!
  • Avatar: Azura? What's wrong? ...And why are you so out of breath?
  • Azura: I came to warn you! There's been a breach! Another Hoshidan infiltrated the camp!
  • Avatar: What?!
  • Hoshidan: You're the prince of Nohr, aren't you?
  • Azura: Oh, no! He's already here!
  • Hoshidan: I'm here to avenge my friends! DIE!
  • Avatar: Uh...
  • Azura: Avatar! What's wrong with you?! He's drawing his weapon! Snap out of it!
  • Avatar: B-but...!
  • Azura: Avatar? ...Fine! You leave me no choice. I'll fight him for you!
  • Hoshidan: ...Huh? She got me...?! N-no!
  • Avatar: Azura, are you all right?!
  • Azura: Now that he's finished, I'm perfectly fine. The question is—Avatar, are you all right?
  • Avatar: Yeah. I don't know what happened. I just froze! I'm so sorry. I put both of our lives in danger. I can't believe I'm so pathetic!
  • Azura: You're not pathetic! You're human—like the rest of us. You care about people! I know you're tired of having blood on your hands. I won't let you do it alone anymore. Now my hands are just as stained as yours. When you can't go on, I'll fight for you.
  • Avatar: Do you really mean that?
  • Azura: Absolutely! We're going to walk this bloodstained path until we reach the end.
  • Avatar: All right. I won't hesitate next time. If we're going down, we'll go together.
  • Azura: I'll be by your side every step of the way. I promise.

S Support Edit

  • Avatar:Azura, do you have a minute?
  • Azura: Of course, but it's so late! You didn't have another nightmare, did you?
  • Avatar: No. I haven't had another nightmare since we talked. I'm doing much better now.
  • Azura: You are better, aren't you?
  • Avatar: Thanks to you. That's actually what I wanted to talk to you about.
  • Azura: Oh?
  • Avatar: The other day, you promised to be by my side. That made such a difference to me. Now, I know that I'm not in this alone anymore.
  • Azura: Well, it's true. You're not alone anymore.
  • Avatar: ...But the thing is, I don't want blood on your hands either!
  • Azura: Oh, my! Avatar, that was just a metaphor.
  • Avatar: I know! But I care about you! ...And not just as an ally or a friend... Azura, I love you. I want to do anything to protect you.
  • Azura: What?!
  • Avatar: I can't bear the thought of dragging you down with me! I'd rather know you were unburdened by guilt than have have you by my side, suffering.
  • Azura: Avatar, you have a kind heart. I'm not surprised you feel that way. What if things didn't end to badly? Let's make a new promise! What if we keep walking this road until we end up someplace full of hope?
  • Avatar: Do you really think that's possible?
  • Azura: Yes! Avatar, I love you! Let's keep pressing on until we find peace!
  • Azura: I finally know what true happiness is. No matter what happens, dear love... I will always be with you.

With Azura (Revelation) Edit

C Support Edit

  • Avatar: A small lake in the middle of the woods... Reminds me of where I once met Azura.
  • Azura: Oh, Hello, Avatar. What Brings you out here?
  • Avatar: I was looking for you, in fact. I apologize if I interrupted your singing.
  • Azura: It's no trouble. Is there something I can help you with today?
  • Avatar: I actually wanted to talk with you about something I realized. I believe that you and I are in a unique position regarding Nohr and Hoshido.I'm a prince of Hoshido who was raised in Nohr and... You're a princess of Nohr raised in Hoshido.
  • Azura: Ahhh, I see what you mean. I agree that we're pretty unique.
  • Avatar: Because of this background, I think we may have interesting views on the countries. I wanted to talk with you and compare what we each believed.
  • Azura: That is quite interesting...
  • Avatar: We could start with Hoshido. From my perspective, It seems so warm and bright. The land is fertile, and it seems like no one is ever wanting anything.
  • Azura: A valid observation. This bountifulness makes everyone amiable and respectful.
  • Avatar: And yet, they always have the threat of a Nohrian invasion hanging over them.
  • Azura: Indeed, which is quite unfair: Nohr is always the aggressor, and without reason.
  • Avatar: That seems to be the case, but... What if you considered the Nohrian side? Can you try to imagine how the people in Nohr view Hoshido?
  • Azura: I suppose the carefree attitude of Hoshido might look like indifference to others. It could give people the impression that Hoshidans are very self centered. So long as there is peace, the people in Hoshido seem uninterested in the world.
  • Avatar: I hadn't ever heard that opinion before, but I think it could have some merit. It could be one of the reasons that Nohr dislikes Hoshido so much.
  • Azura: I'm glad to be able to look at this situation with a new perspective. I'm sure we'd benefit from continuing this conversation...
  • Avatar: I agree, though we'll have to continue at another time. The day has only just started, and there is a lot to do. Until next time, Azura!

B Support Edit

  • Azura: Hello, Avatar. You've come calling again?
  • Avatar: Indeed, I was hoping we could continue our conversation we were having the other day.
  • Azura: Of course. We were going to talk about Nohr, were we not?
  • Avatar: Yes. I spent most of my life in Nohr, and I can safley say it was always gloomy.Besides the dark forests, there was very little plant life among the rocky terrain From what I've read, most of the land is tundra and bad for farming...
  • Azura: I've always heard that the people of Nohr are especially cold to outsiders. It's almost like the world they live in has deeply influenced their mentalities.
  • Avatar: You can dismiss that thinking, though. I know many Nohrians who are kindhearted. Just look at our allies from Nohr if you want proof that that is a misconception.
  • Azura: Interesting, Like with Hoshido, if we look at Nohr with a different perspective... we both learn a bit more. Nohr has invaded other regions many times over the years, but talking about it now... It could just be that their biggest motivation has been jealousy or feeling alienated. After all, anyone would get upset if they were often made to feel inferior.
  • Avatar: And if thats how Hoshido made Nohr feel even accidentally, it's good to know. It doesn't excuse Nohrain actions, but it does help understand them.
  • Azura: And by understanding, we might be just a step closer to bringing peace to the world. If we can find a way to ease the tensions that both nations feel...
  • Avatar: First, we have to eliminate the evil that is getting in the way. But that's for another time, I think. There are many things to do today.
  • Azura: You're right. I'd be glad to continue this conversation later.

A Support Edit

  • Azura: Hi, Avatar. Are you here to continue our chat from the other day?
  • Avatar: Indeed I am! We've already covered Nohr and hoshido, so we should talk about—-
  • Azura: NO!! Sorry, I mean, you know how it works. You can't say anything here... I can take us through the lake, and then we can talk.
  • Avatar: Oh, of course. What was I thinking?
  • Azura: We'll be there in just another few moments. ...

(Scene Transition)

  • Azura: And here we are. Easy enough.
  • Avatar: It's still so strange to see this place. It's unlike anything in Hoshido or Nohr.
  • Azura: Now that we're in Valla, we can safley talk about it. It... is what you wanted to talk about, right?
  • Avatar: Yes, I don't know why the curse slipped my mind.
  • Azura: You know, Avatar, It isn't really the kingdom of Valla that is a problem. The entire conflict is a result of the will of Anankos.
  • Avatar: That's right.. Anankos, the King of Valla. I was only able to find the occasional mention of him in ancient texts. Usually he was referred to as a sort of god, right?
  • Azura: Whether he is a demon or a god, I am not sure, but he possesses incredible power. I've heard legends about how long ago, a powerful entity gave humans great power. In return, he required their faithfulness. Though this alliance was meant to last for all time, the humans did not honor it. Overtime they discovered and acquired power from other sources. As they did that, they slowly abandoned the entity that had aided them. Insulted by this betrayal, the being went berserk.
  • Avatar: And that being... It was Anankos?
  • Azura: There is no way to know for sure, sadly. It would explain why he's out to destroy Nohr and Hoshido, though.
  • Avatar: What a sad story.
  • Azura: Indeed. But it also teaches us an important lesson, I think. We've talked about the conflict between Nohr and Hoshido... This story teaches us what can result from holding a grudge for too long.
  • Avatar: I agree. We have to focus on what we can do to improve the world. It may mean that we sometimes have to fight, but it doesn't always have to. Anytime we can turn an enemy into an ally, we should at least try.
  • Azura: Indeed. But we've drifted from our topic.... We should head back. It's dangerous to be here by ourselves.
  • Avatar: Very well.
  • (Scene Transition)
  • Azura: Thanks for the conversation, Avatar. Time flies, and I feel like we grow a lot each time we talk.
  • Avatar: I feel the same. I think we've discovered a special connection between us. I'll always cherish this special friendship.
  • Azura: Likewise. Until next time, Avatar. I will do the same. Looking forward to spending more time with you, Avatar.

S Support Edit

  • Avatar: I wonder if I'll find Azura by that lake again. Can't hurt to check... Is that a shadow over there? I think so... It must be her!
  • Azura: ...
  • Avatar: Oh. Oh! I'm sorry!
  • Azura: What?! Who's over there?!
  • Avatar: It's me! I'm sorry, Azura! I didn't realize that you'd be bathing...
  • Azura: Avatar.. Could you turn around? I need to dress.
  • Avatar: O-of course! I'm sorry...
  • Azura: Ok, you can turn around.
  • Avatar: I can't stop apologizing, Azura. I was coming here to talk to you, and... I didn't see anything, I swear!
  • Azura: Nothing at all, I had a feeling someone was around for a bit before you spoke up...
  • Avatar: Well... Ok, maybe I saw your back. But only for a moment!
  • Azura: ...
  • Avatar: You're a beautiful woman Azura! I couldn't look away!
  • Azura: But peeping on someone who's bathing? That's just... ugh. I'm a bit upset, but I'll forgive you this one time.
  • Avatar: Thank you Azura! I promise to be more aware and more careful. I wouldn't want to end up on your bad side. Especially now that, well...
  • Azura: Pardon me? You kind of trailed of there, Avatar.
  • Avatar: I've been thinking, since we had our last conversation... Talking about major kingdoms, and the reason for this war we fight... All the mysteries that surround things in the world just didn't seem as important.
  • Azura: What are you talking about?
  • Avatar: We could have been talking about the color of the shade of the sky... What was important was being able to spend that time with you.
  • Azura: Oh, Avatar... Honestly, I've been trying to find a way to tell you that I feel the exact same.
  • Avatar: What...?
  • Azura: I also really, really enjoyed just talking with you all that time. I want to believe it was fate that you and I came together. Two people like us, with pasts so similar to each other... It could only have meant to be.
  • Avatar: I think so, too.
  • Azura: Whatever happens in the world... I believe that you and I are tied together, and what binds us together is stronger than all else.
  • Avatar: I'll stay by your side, Azura. We can take on the entire world if we have to!
  • Azura: We'll always be together!
  • Azura: I somehow feel that I have always loved you.. Together we will save this world. Please, Never let me go.

With Felicia  Edit

C Support Edit

  • Felicia: *Sniffle* Why does this sort of thing always happen to me? I've ruined ANOTHER meal! I thought I followed the recipe perfectly this time...
  • Avatar: Hey, Felicia. What's the matter? Oh, no. Did you start another fire? That's the third time this month...
  • Felicia: Lord Avatar! N-No, Not this time... This time I just ruined another meal.
  • Avatar: Felicia... I'm sorry. I didn't mean to hurt your feelings. Please, cheer up! You're plenty helpful to everyone. I promise.
  • Felicia: Sorry, but I don't believe that at all.
  • Avatar: Well, what about that last battle, when you got the enemy's attention by screaming? And then, you not only got them to come after you, you took them all out too! I've never seen such a bold strategy! And such bravery.
  • Felicia: ...
  • Avatar: Felicia?! What's wrong? Why are you curling up on the floor again?!
  • Felicia: You really don't understand, do you? That wasn't a strategy, Avatar! I was just trying to run away from them, and then I got surrounded. I had to fight my way out or die! I wasn't being brave. I was terrified.
  • Avatar: Oh, really? Could have fooled me...
  • Felicia: I don't want to be a good warrior anyway! We have plenty of soldiers already. I want to be a good maid. I want to be able to mend clothes and make food and wash dishes and the like. Have you seen camp lately? We need that more than we need an extra muscle.
  • Avatar: Yeah, I guess so. I suppose you don't have to join us on the battlefield.
  • Felicia: But then I'd be COMPLETELY worthless!
  • Avatar: No! Don't say that! You could... er.... You could help with... Oh, look! A Faceless! I have to go.
  • Felicia: ... I'm going back to my corner...

B Support Edit

  • Felicia: Ouch! That really stings.
  • Avatar: Hey, Felicia. I just saw a big pile of broken dishes. Did you...? Oh, wow, that's a big cut on your forehead. Are you all right? Here, let me take a look... Hm. We should put some ointments on this.
  • Felicia: I'm so useless I can't even carry a few stupid dishes around... I wish I could serve you like a proper maid. Or at least stop breaking things... Then you wouldn't have to look after me all the time.
  • Avatar: Aw, come on. Felicia. We're practically family! And Family helps each other out. Besides. It's the least I could do for someone who saved my life.
  • Felicia: I saved your life?
  • Avatar: Don't you remember? It was when I had that terrible fever, years ago. I kept getting sicker and sicker.
  • Felicia: Oh! Yes! I do remember. It was around the same time Flora and I started serving as your maids, correct?But even then, I was a mess. I couldn't care for you properly at all! I had no idea what to do when you fell ill...
  • Avatar: Well, you didn't know the normal ways to treat an illness, that's true... But that didn't matter. You kept my fever down for days using your ice powers. Drawing the heat out of me and into yourself... They said it was extremely dangerous. You could have died.
  • Felicia: It was the only thing I could think to do at the time.
  • Avatar: Did you ever stop to consider what might have happened to you? I'm grateful, of course, but I don't want you sacrificing yourself for my sake, OK? I want you to look out for yourself, too.
  • Felicia: Lord Avatar, you don't understand. I WAS looking out for myself.
  • Avatar: What do you mean?
  • Felicia: Heehee, never mind. Forget I said anything!
  • Avatar: Felicia? Wait!

A Support Edit

  • Felicia: *gulp* You can do it, Felicia! Just put the pot back in the cabinet... Gently...gently... I'm not the same old Felicia I've always been! I'm Super Felicia! I'm transforming into an elegant maid, like a caterpillar into a butterfly! NO! Argh! I'm g-gonna slip! ... Huh? Why does nothing hurt? I could have sworn I slipped...
  • Avatar: Felicia... Try to be more careful when you're on a ladder.
  • Felicia: Lord Avatar?! You caught me!
  • Avatar: I'm just glad I arrived in time. Now, Felicia, you need to pay more attention to what you're doing. No wonder you get distracted all the time, talking to yourself like that.
  • Felicia: Ack! You heard that? Having you catch me was bad enough, but hearing me talk to myself... I'm never going to live this down.
  • Avatar: Haha. Don't worry about it too much. Let's get you back on the ground. Are you all right?
  • Felicia: Y-yes, I'm fine.
  • Avatar: So, you know... I might consider keeping this little incident to myself if you were to tell me something. Remember how I was scolding you for always putting others before yourself? And you said that you did look out for yourself? What did you mean by that?
  • Felicia: Oh...that. Do I have to tell you?
  • Avatar: Yes. I've been wondering about it ever since.
  • Felicia: OK, then. I just meant that I look after myself by looking after others.
  • Avatar: Huh? What do you mean?
  • Felicia: You were worried that I'd neglect myself by trying too hard to help out. But the thing is... I'd only be neglecting myself if I didn't help everyone. If I stopped, I'd just feel terrible and useless... I wouldn't be happy. I know I'm a big klutz, but I take pride in working as hard as I can to serve others.
  • Avatar: But don't you find that exhausting?
  • Felicia: Very much so. but It's a meaningful kind of exhausting. And that makes it all worth it.
  • Avatar: Felicia...you're a very inspiring person, you know that?
  • Felicia: Oh, stop! You're making me blush!
  • Avatar: But I don't want you to push yourself too hard. Remember, you can't help others very effectively if you're exhausted all the time.
  • Felicia: I know that! I promise not to overwork myself.
  • Avatar: Haha, good. Now, if only you could promise to keep away from the dishes too...
  • Felicia: Avatar!! Why did you have to go and spoil a perfectly beautiful moment like that?
  • Avatar: Hahaha. Sorry, Felicia. I couldn't help myself. But I do hope you'll always be there to help us—on and off the battlefield.
  • Felicia: Of course, milord!

S Support Edit

  • Avatar: Felicia? Felicia! Where are you?! It's OK. You can come out now! Poor girl. I hope she's not beating herself up too much. Today was worse than usual. I bet she's off in that corner again... Aha. Thought so.
  • Felicia: *sniffle* Hello, Lord Avatar.
  • Avatar: Felicia, cheer up. Everything'll be all right. Everyone makes mistakes.
  • Felicia: But what kind of maid oversleeps and gets dressed with her clothes inside out? And then burns everyone's breakfasts and drops their sheets in the mud? Can I just quit being a maid and go back home?
  • Avatar: I'll admit, that's pretty impressive for one morning. You know, maybe calling it quits isn't such a bad idea...
  • Felicia: Lord Avatar! Don't say that! Especially not right now!
  • Avatar: Haha, calm down. I'm only kidding! Felicia, giving up like that... It's just not like you. Didn't you tell me that helping others is what keeps you going?
  • Felicia: Huh? Oh. I made that all up.
  • Avatar: Wh-what?! Why?
  • Felicia: I mean, of course I want to do my best for others, but I'm really not that selfless.
  • Avatar: But you said you were looking out for yourself when you healed me... What did you mean by that?
  • Felicia: Really? You're going to make me spell it out for you?
  • Avatar: Spell what out?
  • Felicia: I love you, milord!
  • Avatar: What?! Since when?!
  • Felicia: A long time now... But it's OK. you don't have to say anything. I know my feelings are forbidden. A prince cannot marry a maid. Royal marriages are too important for love to determine... Not that you DO love me. So, please...just forget what I said.
  • Avatar: Oh, Felicia... I love you too.
  • Felicia: What?!
  • Avatar: Why do you think I spend so much time tracking you down when you're sad? I've loved you for a long time... All the way back to our days in the Northern Fortress.
  • Felicia: Avatar...
  • Avatar: So, please, don't worry so much about the proper protocol for royal marriages. I will never let anything tear us apart.
  • Felicia: I-I'm so happy... I can hardly breathe!
  • Avatar: I'm sorry for allowing you to suffer so long in silence. Will you make me the happiest man alive? Will you be my wife, Felicia?
  • Felicia: Yes! Of course!
  • Felicia: I'm so glad I didn't mess this up. I love you...

With Jakob Edit

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

(Avatar leaves)

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

B Support Edit

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

  • Jakob: I ... I need to apologize to you, my lord. I am... truly, deeply sorry.
  • Avatar: Huh? What for?
  • Jakob: The truth is... your tea was quite bitter. Undrinkably so.
  • Avatar: ...
  • Jakob: When you handed me the pot, I secretly added some sugar and more hot water! I shouldn't have done it, and I'm terribly terrible sorry. I just... couldn't stand to watch you do it wrong any longer, so...

  • Jakob: Lord Avatar?
  • Avatar: Sorry, Jakob. I knew you did that.
  • Jakob: Y-you did? Then... you won't... punish me for interfering?
  • Avatar: Not at all. You were only trying to help me. I admit... I was too stubborn about it. So, I think that makes us even, don't you?
  • Jakob: You are most magnanimous, milord.
  • Avatar: Well, I also learned something from this: I still need your help to stay on track, Jakob. So.. can I count on you to stick with me even when I'm a stubborn mule?
  • Jakob: Of course I will. I promise to never leave your side. In all honestly... I seem to fall apart when I'm not with you as well.
  • Avatar: It's funny how alike we are.
  • Jakob: That you would even compare us that way! I might... faint with joy...

With Silas Edit

C Support Edit

  • Avatar: Hello, Silas. Do you have some time?
  • Silas: Hm? Oh, hi there, Avatar. Need something?
  • Avatar: Sort of. You mentioned that we were childhood friends but... I'm trying to figure out how you remembered that when I didn't.
  • Silas: Oh, is that all? I wouldn't worry about it. Those old memories slip away for everyone.
  • Avatar: But isn't it strange that I'd forget someone so close to me? You became a castle knight just so our paths would cross again... While I, on the other hand, forgot you existed at all.
  • Silas: Really, though... I wish you wouldn't worry about it. You remember now, and that's all that matters to me. My hard work paid off, didn't it? I became a castle knight, and here we are. I'm grateful for the chance to make up for lost time.
  • Avatar: Grateful, huh? That's a good way of looking at it, Thanks, Silas.
  • Silas: There's the cheer I remember. Oh, hey! Why don't we go take a little trip together sometime?
  • Avatar: Hmm. It sounds fun, but where should we go?
  • Silas: Someplace you always wanted to see. When we were young, you had a long list of places you wished you could go. We couldn't go to any of them at the time, but nothing's stopping us now!
  • Avatar: It sounds nice... but I don't think we should go far, given the circumstances.
  • Silas: Hmm, you're right. But don't worry. I'll find a way to make it work.
  • Avatar: Do you have something up your sleeve?
  • Silas: Haha, sorry if I made my plans seem grander than they are. If we can't go far, we'll limit our options to places within reach. You might not remember all the places on your old list, but I do.
  • Avatar: Great! Thanks for doing this, Silas.
  • Silas: Hey, what are friends for? Now go get packed for the trip!
  • Avatar: I will!
  • Silas exits

B Support Edit

  • Silas: Avatar! I need to talk to you about our upcoming trip.
  • Avatar: Hello, Silas! Did you draw up the list?
  • Silas: Well...about that… I started writing down all the places I could remember you wanting to visit.
  • Avatar: Goodness! That’s...a long list…
  • Silas: Yeah. The memories just kept flooding back… It got a little out of hand.
  • Avatar: I was desperate to get out into the world, wasn’t I? I can’t believe you remembered all these so many years later…
  • Silas: Haha, well, I’ve always had a keen memory. So, where on the list do you want to go? Pick any one you like.
  • Avatar: These aren’t really “places” as such, are they? “A town plaza”...”a street food stall”....”a festival”... Did I really say I wanted to go see “bugs”?!
  • Silas: That’s how I remember it.
  • Avatar: Then I’ll defer to your memory. It’s hard to decide on one, though.
  • Silas: Take your time. And you don’t need to limit yourself to one, you know. We can take multiple trips.
  • Avatar: It really is good of you to do all this for me… It’s all the more mysterious why I would have forgotten about you.
  • Silas: For goodness sake, are you still brooding over that? Why don’t we see if anyone in your retinue knows? They’ve been with you for a long time. One of them must know why, right?
  • Avatar: Yes...though I’m anxious they might have had some reason for not mentioning you…
  • Silas: Don’t worry, Avatar. I’ll come with you. Whatever they say, I’ll stand by your side.
  • Avatar: Thanks, Silas.
  • Silas: Come on, let’s get this cleared up before we do any more trip planning!
  • Avatar: Huh? Hey! Wait for me!

A Support Edit

  • Avatar: Silas...I'm really sorry about the other day.
  • Silas: What, for what we found out? It was a long time ago, Avatar. No need to be sorry. Though I'll admit, the truth isn't what I expected...
  • Avatar: It was a little embarrassing to learn how much I cried after I couldn't see you again.
  • Silas: I can see why they tried to take your mind off me, though. I guess they simply did too good a job...
  • Avatar: That's putting it mildly. I supposed the feelings of one noble boy weren't a priority.
  • Silas: Haha, next to the young prince? I'd have done the same thing in their shoes.
  • Avatar: You have a big heart, Silas. Though I feel my offense in forgetting about you was worse than any of theirs...
  • Silas: I'm actually relieved by what we learned.
  • Avatar: What? Why?
  • Silas: You cried every day because you weren't allowed to see me, right? Doesn't that prove I really was your closest friend?
  • Avatar: Yes, I suppose so.
  • Silas: You should know that I have no regrets about taking you outside those walls. Nothing makes me happier than helping you in whatever way I can.
  • Avatar: Silas... You're a better friend than I deserve.
  • Silas: Well, now that the past is laid to rest, it's time to focus on the present!
  • Avatar: Well said!
  • Silas: Did you decide yet what you want to see? Wait...damn. I forgot the list! Wait here just a second, and I'll be back with it.

With Kaze Edit

C Support Edit

  • Kaze: *sigh*
  • Avatar: Is something wrong, Kaze? And, um... what's with all those radishes?
  • Kaze: Ah, Lord Avatar. Greetings. A young lady gave me these radishes as thanks for helping her find her way.
  • Avatar: Looks like we're having a radish feast tonight! That's pretty great, right?
  • Kaze: I must disagree. It is not "great."
  • Avatar: No? What's the matter? Do you have something against radishes?
  • Kaze: It feels wrong being rewarded for such a simple kindness of giving directions. This is not the first time something like this has happened, either...
  • Avatar: It's...not?
  • Kaze: I can't figure out why, but... I find I'm often approached by women who wish to speak with me or give me things.
  • Avatar: Oh, is that so?
  • Kaze: It gets worse. If I speak even a few words, they'll often start shrieking or hugging me. Sometimes they'll give me letters or garments of clothing or, like today, food. None of our allies act that way, of course. Just strangers. it's...frustrating.
  • Avatar: Hehehe, it sounds to me like you're just popular with the ladies!
  • Kaze: Popular? With...the ladies?
  • Avatar: Exactly. Those women are just...well, they're curious about you. It's because you're kind yet mysterious. Being a ninja doesn't hurt either. In fact, when I was in town the other day, I overheard one of the local women. She said, "That sorrowful look on Kaze's gorgeous face is waaay too dreamy!"
  • Kaze: Argh, I wish you hadn't told me that. I appreciate the praise, but... I would prefer to focus on my duties and keep such sill distractions to a minimum.
  • Avatar: Hahaha, you're so serious all the time. Most men dream of this kind of attention!
  • Kaze: I'm simply behaving as any self-respecting ninja should. That's all there is to it. In any case, they are mistaken. I'm not a good man.
  • Avatar: Why would you say that?
  • Kaze: ...It's nothing. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have an urgent matter to attend to.

  • Kaze: You know I don't mind your company, but may I ask why? Have I done something amiss?
  • Avatar: What?! No! Nothing like that! I thought it would be a good way to point out all the charming things about you!
  • Kaze: Hm? Why would you want to do that?
  • Avatar: I've been worried about you... Ever since you told me you weren't a good person. It sounded like something's really been bothering you, and I want to help. I want you to see all the good in you!
  • Kaze: That's...
  • Avatar: So! What do you say?
  • Kaze: I thank you for your concern, but I am fine, really. Now, if you'll excuse me...

  • Kaze: I would prefer it if you didn't scream like that. What if there were enemies nearby? Never give away your position when isolated from the main body of the army. Please, for all our sakes, try to refrain from such behavior in the future.
  • Avatar: Oh. Yes. You're right. I'm sorry. I just wanted to find you so badly. Thank you for coming back. I know you did it because you were worried for my safety. Which just goes to show how good of a guy you are!

  • Kaze: Please, stop. Just leave me alone.

  • Kaze: Lord (Avatar). I wish to apologize for hurting your feelings the other day.

  • Kaze: ...You have a kind heart, Lord (Avatar).
  • Avatar: You think so?
  • Kaze: ...
  • Avatar: Kaze?
  • Kaze: Lord (Avatar), there's something I haven't told you about myself. Something for which I cannot be forgiven, no matter how much I wish to repent.
  • Avatar: Huh?
  • Kaze: I am a worthless servant. It is my fault that you were kidnapped and taken to Nohr.
  • Avatar: Your fault? What did you do?
  • Kaze: We had all traveled to Cheve that day, and I noticed Nohrian forces in the city. The same forces that would later kill Sumeragi and take you away. But I was young, and I didn't know what their presence meant...so I said nothing.
  • Avatar: It's not your fault, Kaze. You were a child! How could you have known what would happen?
  • Kaze: I come from a long line of ninja that have always served the Hoshidan royalty... I was trained from an early age. If anyone should have understood, it was me. For such incompetence, I should have paid with my life. There's no way I can ever heal the suffering I've caused you and your birth family. I should not even be allowed to speak with you... I am so sorry, Lord (Avatar).
  • Avatar: Stop! You did nothing wrong! If anything, I should be apologizing to you!
  • Kaze: Milord?
  • Avatar: I'm so sorry, Kaze. You must have been tortured by this for years... I never knew...and I've acted so inconsiderately towards you. But...I think now is the time to forgive and to move on. We can't allow the rest of our lives to be defined by past mistakes. Besides, you were the one who returned me, were you not?
  • Kaze: Returned you?
  • Avatar: Yes. It was you who traveled to the Flame Tribe in order to bring me back. And you were the one by my side when I returned to Hoshido. It was you, Kaze. You gave me a chance to be with my birth family again.
  • Kaze: But--
  • Avatar: Kaze, you are not at fault. And even if you were, you have repaid your debt to me. So, please, let us never speak of this again. Will you promise me that?
  • Kaze: ...
  • Avatar: Well?
  • Kaze: ...Yes. I promise.
  • Avatar: Good.
  • Kaze: Heh.
  • Avatar: Are you...laughing at me?!
  • Kaze: It's just...you remind me so much of Lady Mikoto. It warms my heart.
  • Avatar: I remind you of my mother? How so?
  • Kaze: When Lady Mikoto became queen, she forgave me and allowed me to serve her. I wonder if she somehow foresaw that her child would do the same one day. Perhaps you are the one I was always meant to serve.
  • Avatar: Hm? What do you mean?
  • Kaze: As you must have noticed, all members of Hoshido's royal family have two retainers. These retainers are chosen from the best of the castle soldiery. When the time is right, they pledge their allegiance to a single lord. For example, Orochi and Reina both served the late Queen Mikoto. Subaki and Hana serve Lady Sakura. Hinata and Oboro serve Lord Takumi. Azama and Setsuna serve Lady Hinoka. And Kagero and my twin brother, Saizo, serve Lord Ryoma.
  • Avatar: Wait. So that means...
  • Kaze: Yes. Though I have served the royal family for some time. I serve no single master. I've always been troubled by this fact, but perhaps Lady Mikoto arranged it...so that someday, when the time was right, I could serve you, Lord (Avatar). If you will have me, then I will pledge myself to you.
  • Avatar: I...!
  • Kaze: Do you accept?
  • Avatar: Kaze... I do. I accept.
  • Kaze: Now, as your retainer, I hereby vow to protect you with my life.
  • Avatar: Thank you. I pray it never comes to that, my friend.

  • Mozu: Just what're you implying?!
  • Avatar: Sorry, I meant it as a compliment. No offense intended. Where did you get all these vegetables, anyway?
  • Mozu: From a village I visited a little while back. I helped some of the grannies on the farm there and made a few new friends!

B SupportEdit

  • Avatar: You really opened my eyes, Mozu. I never knew you were such a good hunter.
  • Mozu: Aw, you're flattering me. Farm work and hunting is all I've ever been good at.
  • Avatar: What sort of animals did you used to hunt?
  • Mozu: Well, a nice big boar was always welcome when you'd bring it back to the village. They're good eating, and you can put most parts of it to use. They're pretty rowdy, though, so they're not easy hunting. Around my village, you weren't a real hunter until you'd bagged yourself a boar.
  • Avatar: Did you ever get one?
  • Mozu: Surely did! On my first try, too! I forgot my bow though, so I had to finish it off with a knife.
  • Avatar: Just a knife?!
  • Mozu: Yep. My fondest memory of hunting, though, isn't boars. It's bears.
  • Avatar: B-bears?! You caught a bear on your own?!
  • Mozu: Surely did.
  • Avatar: How did you manage that?! Their sharp claws...their immense size...!
  • Mozu: Oh, those aren't the things you gotta worry about. It's their smarts.
  • Avatar: No...no, I'd still be most intimidated by their size, I think...
  • Mozu: They can dodge arrows and track you with their powerful noses. They're some real tough prey. This old man in our village was good at hunting them, though. He had some technique that'd been passed down over generations. I really looked up to him and tried to figure out his moves for myself. Man, that really takes me back...
  • Avatar: Mozu...
  • Mozu: Aww, there I go again! I gotta stop thinking about that stuff.
  • Avatar: I have a suggestion... You're good at farming and hunting, but why not try something new?
  • Mozu: Something new?
  • Avatar: Maybe I could teach you something I know a lot about as thanks for your help hunting.

  • Mozu: Something important? Why are you acting so funny?
  • Avatar: Where to begin... I mean no offense by this, but when we first met, I felt sorry for you. You had just lost your entire family and were forced to survive on your own. But as I've spent more time with you, that pity has given way to something else. I find myself wanting to be with you more. I think of you constantly...
  • Mozu: Are you saying...?
  • Avatar: I told you last time that you should think of us as family. What I meant by that was that we're all part of something larger in this army, but... I want to revise that. So please indulge me when I say... I love you, Mozu. I want us to be married. Could we start a real family together?
  • Mozu: I...! Lord Avatar...
  • Avatar: It must have taken a lot of courage for you to leave your village to join our cause. That's something to be proud of. I don't want you to regret your choice.
  • Mozu: ... Thank you, Lord Avatar. I think maybe my heart was always meant to be yours...
  • Avatar: Hm? Oh! So...?
  • Mozu: Of course I'll marry you. I've never for one day regretted joining your army. This new family I found makes me feel so lucky...
  • Avatar: I'm relieved to hear it. You need never feel lonely again. Not with your family and I here for you.
  • Mozu: That's just what I love about you, Lord Avatar.
  • Mozu: You've opened up a whole new world to me! Let's explore it together.

With Shura Edit

C Support Edit

  • Avatar: Shura! I just wanted to say that I'm glad you joined us.
  • Shura: Thank you, milord. I promise I won't let you down.
  • Avatar: I believe it. I had a question for you, though. You don't have to answer it if don't want to. Why did you become an outlaw? You seem an honorable enough type now...
  • Shura: ...
  • Avatar: ...I understand. Well, if you ever feel comfortable sharing, I'm all ears.
  • Shura: No, wait. The reason is...I needed money. There is a dream I must make a reality.
  • Avatar: A dream?
  • Shura: Yes. I dream of someday rebuilding Kohga, my home.
  • Avatar: I see. It must have been marvelous, to inspire such ardor.
  • Shura: It was. It was a beautiful, mountainous land, lush with greenery. And our people...they were so joyous—so cheerful. The laughter never truly ceased. In truth, it may not have been too different from other small countries... Nostalgia could easily have clouded my judgment in such matters. But for me it will always be an earthly paradise...one that must be restored at all costs.
  • Avatar: I wish I could have seen it. You make it sound so lovely.
  • Shura: That it was. And maybe someday you will see it, once it has been rebuilt. It would only be fitting; it was you, after all, that made me dare to hope once more. If Kohga stand tall again, it will only be because this outlaw met so noble a man. Which is why I vow to serve you until my dream might be realized.
  • Avatar: I am glad to know I have such a valuable and steadfast ally at my side. I'll be counting on you, Shura.
  • Shura: Aye, milord. I will not disappoint.

B Support Edit

  • Shura: Hmm...
  • Avatar: Shura! You look upset. Is something troubling you?
  • Shura: Avatar...? No. I'm all right.
  • Avatar: Are you sure? You look like you could use someone to talk to.
  • Shura: It's just...I am beginning to feel my dream of rebuilding Kohga will remain just that.
  • Avatar: Don't say that. I'm sure you will make it happen.
  • Shura: I wish I could have that same faith.
  • Avatar: But you were so hopeful just the other day. What's changed since then?
  • Shura: Nothing. Just thinking... Suppose we do win this war. Even if we reclaim our territory, the people of Kohga are no more. Perhaps what made Kohga beautiful was not the lands but the spirit of the people. And perhaps others, living in the same way, in the same homes, will be...different.
  • Avatar: I see.
  • Shura: I could rebuild a Kohga a thousand times as grand, and it would not change this. Perhaps I am simply a child at his mother's wake, wailing for her to return.
  • Avatar: Shura...
  • Shura: On some level, I must have always known this. Perhaps I never became an outlaw for my dream. Perhaps it was to escape reality. Outlaws only have to think about how they are going to survive each day. That life has a way of pushing aside one's larger doubts. It makes them irrelevant. But now they return to me. And they will not go back to sleep.
  • Avatar: I don't know what to say.
  • Shura: Bah. You needn't worry yourself over this, Lord Avatar. Even if I cannot hope to achieve my dream, I will still serve you loyally. If only to repay the debt I owe for plucking me from the darkness. Now, I'll trouble you no more about this. Good day, milord.
  • Avatar: W-wait! Don't go...

A Support Edit

  • Avatar: Shura. we need to talk.
  • Shura: Eh? What's with the serious tone? Something wrong?
  • Avatar: Are you still worried that your dream of restoring Kohga will never be fulfilled?
  • Shura: Yes. Why?
  • Avatar: I see. Then Kohga is truly lost.
  • Shura: What do you mean? My homeland was destroyed long ago.
  • Avatar: It's true that Kohga is no longer the land it once was. And it it also true that many of its people no longer draw breath...
  • Shura: Yes, yes. And?
  • Avatar: However, the spirit of Kohga—the spirit you prize so highly—lives on inside you.
  • Shura: Hmph. Kohga's spirit, eh?
  • Avatar: Yes.As long as you believe in it, its fire will continue to blaze. However, if you give up, then there is nothing in this world that can restore it.
  • Shura: Heh. You sure know how to make a sappy speech, boy. But you're not wrong. Thank you. I will never allow myself to waver again. I WILL see Kohga restored.
  • Avatar: Yes. You will. And I'll do whatever I can to help you, my friend.
  • Shura: Thank you, Lord Avatar. I will not forget the kindnesses you have done me.

With Ryoma Edit

C Support Edit

  • Avatar: Hello, Ryoma. I have a favor to ask of you.
  • Ryoma: Certainly. How can I help?
  • Avatar: Well, I don't have many memories from before I was taken to Nohr. I was just wondering if you had any that you wouldn't mind sharing with me...
  • Ryoma: Hmm. Yes, I suppose I do. They're not all happy, I'm afraid.
  • Avatar: That's OK. I just feel as though there's a...void...in my mind. I'd like to hear a little bit about what it was like growing up in Hoshido. And stories about the whole family...Hinoka, Takumi, Azura, and Sakura.
  • Ryoma: Very well. I anticipated this day would come, actually. And I have something for you.
  • Avatar: Oh? What is it?
  • Ryoma: I think I'll hang on to it for a little while longer. It will hold more meaning if I give it to you later.
  • Avatar: All right. I suppose I can be patient.
  • Ryoma: I'm glad to hear it. Because our conversation will also have to wait, I'm afraid. I have something I must attend to shortly.
  • Avatar: I understand. Thank you, Ryoma. Let's chat again soon.

B Support Edit

  • Avatar: Good day, Ryoma. Would now be a good time to chat?
  • Ryoma: Ah, Avatar. Yes, I suppose I have some time right now. But where to begin? Hmm... Ah! Perhaps I could start with the siblings. Like little Hinoka... the crybaby.
  • Avatar: Hinoka... a crybaby? I can't see it.
  • Ryoma: Yes, well, she has matured tremendously. Now she's an excellent model soldier. Takumi, on the other hand... has not reached the same level of maturity.
  • Avatar: But Takumi seems so strong and self-assured.
  • Ryoma: Perhaps, but remember that very hard substances are often brittle. Takumi's emotions are fragile. He needs to work on his mental fortitude. That said, I believe in him. I think he has a promising future ahead.
  • Avatar: I see.
  • Ryoma: As for Azura, she's always been a bit distant. Even as a child. She's kind and wise, but I wish she knew how to open up a little bit.
  • Avatar: It's fascinating to hear your perspective like this. Please, continue!
  • Ryoma: Certainly. Let's see, where was I... Ah, Sakura. She's a gentle soul. Always worrying about others. My hope for her is that she can learn to be a bit more selfish. It would serve her well.
  • Avatar: Thank you, Ryoma. I really appreciate your insights. I think it's wonderful that you've spent so much time thinking about your family.
  • Ryoma: Well, as the eldest, I suppose I feel a certain responsibility. And, of course, I spend a great deal of time in self-reflection. I'm not without my faults.
  • Avatar: Well, you're human. Nobody's perfect. But you are a wise and caring older brother, Ryoma. Everyone looks up to you.
  • Ryoma: Thank you, Avatar. That means a lot coming from you.
  • Avatar: I just wish I knew more about my own background.
  • Ryoma: Yes. Your story is a troubling one. I hope that I can help you put a few of the pieces together. But I'm afraid even I don't know nearly the whole of it.
  • Avatar: Thank you, Ryoma. I really appreciate it.
  • Ryoma: Anytime, Avatar.

A Support Edit

  • Ryoma: Hello, Avatar. I've noticed that you seem a bit down lately. Is anything the matter?
  • Avatar: Hmm? No, I'm fine. Why do you ask?
  • Ryoma: Are you sure? You can confide in me. You seemed a bi... forlorn... when we last spoke.
  • Avatar: Well, if I'm being totally honest... I have truly enjoyed hearing your stories about the past. But they've also made me sad. I feel like I've missed out on so much.
  • Ryoma: So that's what's weighing you down. It's important to remember that we can't change the past. We can only try to shape our future. So, if you don't have any memories, you just have to make new ones. And we're all here together now.
  • Avatar: Thank you, Ryoma. Those are wise words.
  • Ryoma: You're welcome. And here's something else that may cheer you up. Remember how I said I had something for you? Well, I think the time is right. This is from all of us.
  • Avatar: Whoa. That's quite a ring.
  • Ryoma: Indeed. The four of us had it made for you a long time ago. We vowed to give it to you upon our eventual reunion. And here you are, safely returned to us.
  • Avatar: Ryoma... I'm so glad to be a part of this family. Thank you!
  • Ryoma: And we are happy to have you. Our ties can only grow stronger as we move forward!

With Hinoka Edit

C SupportEdit

  • Avatar: Hm? Was that a whinny just now? Oh, I think I see Hinoka. It must be her pegasus I heard...
  • Hinoka: There you go... Feels good, doesn't it? Oh, don't get your feathers all ruffled! It just makes it harder to brush you... We've been partners for a while; it was so long ago that I chose to be a sky knight... Hm?
  • Avatar: Oh, sorry, Hinoka. I didn't mean to interrupt you...
  • Hinoka: Hi, Avatar. It's not a problem at all. What can I do for you?
  • Avatar: Well, I overheard you talking about when you decided to become a sky knight... I'm actually curious why you did it.
  • Hinoka: I don't know if it's a story I should tell you. ... No, that's wrong. Now that we're reunited, I can share it with you. After you were kidnapped, I was so mad, I didn't know what to do with myself. On several occasions, I snuck out of the castle, thinking I could come save you.
  • Avatar: Really?!
  • Hinoka: But I was always stopped, either by castle staff, Ryoma, or even Mother herself. I was just so angry that those Nohrians had stolen you away from us... And I was mad at myself for not being able to do anything about it.
  • Avatar: Hinoka...
  • Hinoka: As I got older, I realized that I was trying to do the impossible. I was so young; there was no way I could walk through all of Nohr and save you. And then one day I saw a pegasus flying...
  • Avatar: So that was when you decided to become a sky knight?
  • Hinoka: Indeed. That decision has driven almost everything I've done since then. It's really made me into the person I am today—much stronger and determined. I suppose I should thank you, Avatar, even though I wish you'd been spared it.
  • Avatar: I'm the one who should be thanking you. If things hadn't turned out exactly as they did, I'd have needed you to save me! Thank you, Hinoka.

B SupportEdit

  • Avatar: Hello there, Hinoka. Tending to your pegasus again?
  • Hinoka: Indeed. He's always been my partner on the battlefield, after all. It's important that I show him my appreciation whenever I can.
  • Avatar: You were still quite young when you decided to become a sky knight, right? It's obviously a dangerous job... Did anyone try to talk you out of it?
  • Hinoka: Oh, definitely. Many people did. Your mother more than most.
  • Avatar: What? Even my mother? She was worried for your safety, even though you weren't related?
  • Hinoka: Indeed. It even surprised me how strongly opposed to the idea she was. She tried all manner of things to convince me to change my mind. Begging, bribing...
  • Avatar: How did you respond?
  • Hinoka: Well, I was still a very young girl... Ryoma and the others accepted her as Father's wife and our new mother, but I... I didn't do that very easily. As a result, I was cruel to her—more cruel than she could ever deserve.
  • Avatar: Oh, no! What happened? What did you do?
  • Hinoka: I told her that she wasn't my mother and had no place ordering me around. Of course, I apologized later, but it's impossible to take back what was said. I still remember how her face changed right as the words left my mouth. I'll probably regret having said that for the rest of my life...
  • Avatar: That was years ago, though! I'm sure she forgave you long ago. You were young and didn't know any better. I think you can forgive yourself...
  • Hinoka: No, it's better that I continue to carry this burden with me as a reminder, I think.
  • Avatar: Hinoka...

A SupportEdit

  • Avatar: Is that Hinoka's pegasus over there? Hey there. You're a lucky one. You probably know this, but Hinoka is pretty great. She's strong and she's brave...and she's really determined. At the same time she's so kind and caring. You couldn't have asked for a better rider.
  • Hinoka: Avatar? What are you doing here?
  • Avatar: Gah! H-hello, Hinoka! I didn't see you...
  • Hinoka: You jumped a foot in the air, Avatar. Why were you so startled?
  • Avatar: No reason! No reason... I'm fine. I just wasn't expecting you to be there. I was...wrapped up in talking to your pegasus about you.
  • Hinoka: You were? What were you saying to him?
  • Avatar: I was telling him how lucky he was to have someone who cares so much. Even though becoming a sky knight has really defined who you are...you were just as caring a person before.
  • Hinoka: ...
  • Avatar: I'm incredibly grateful for how much you've cared for me. I feel like I need to give a little back, too.
  • Hinoka: Avatar...
  • Avatar: You've worked so hard to support me. I want to be able to support you too.
  • Hinoka: Heehee... When did you learn to be so direct in your words?
  • Avatar: D-don't tease me! I'm serious!
  • Hinoka: I know, Avatar, I know. Thank you. I'm blessed to be your sister.
  • Avatar: And I'm thankful to be your brother. I hope that you'll lean on me for help whenever you need it.
  • Hinoka: Of course.

S SupportEdit

  • Hinoka: You know, Avatar showered me with all those nice words, but... I don't think I'm as wonderful a person as he seems to believe... Remember how angry I was after he was kidnapped? It's impossible to deny—even you wouldn't obey me back then... They say pegasi only listen to people with pure hearts... I can't even count the number of times you threw me as I was learning to ride. Heehee... Even then I had probably fallen for him and just not realized it. I can be pretty scary when I lose something I love...
  • Avatar: H-Hinoka...
  • Hinoka: What the—?!
  • Avatar: Were you talking about...me, just now?
  • Hinoka: I...um... You were listening? It doesn't matter! Just...forget everything you heard, OK? That wasn't meant for you!
  • Avatar: No. I don't think I can forget that.
  • Hinoka: But why...
  • Avatar: Because hearing it... It made me really happy to hear you say that.
  • Hinoka: What?!
  • Avatar: Never in my wildest dreams did I think that you felt that way about me. And while I am glad to know it...no matter how much we care about each other, we're siblings. It would be best if we just buried these feelings and never let them out.
  • Hinoka: I didn't think you shared the same feelings, which is why I didn't tell you... Well, forgive me for not sharing this truth with you before now.
  • Avatar: What are you talking about?
  • Hinoka: The truth is...you're not my brother. My blood brother, anyway.
  • Avatar: Huh?! What do you mean?
  • Hinoka: After you returned to Hoshido, Mother... Queen Mikoto gave me this letter. She told me to read it if—in light of your return—I ever worried about who I loved. I didn't know what she meant then, but a few days ago I realized she meant you. In the letter, Mother writes that you aren't Father...King Sumeragi's child. Since we also have different mothers...
  • Avatar: This is...a lot to take in all at once...
  • Hinoka: Thinking back, we all knew that Mother had prophetic powers. She must have given me the letter because she knew I would fall in love with you. The letter also talked a bit about her and Father's relationship...
  • Avatar: What did it say?
  • Hinoka: Mother wrote that she came to Hoshido after asking my father for help. When she arrived, she had a baby with her. He had been born in her homeland. That baby was you, Avatar. Father knew that you weren't his child, and yet he raised you as his own... Such was his love for Mother... Your mother, that is.
  • Avatar: Even knowing the truth, I can't think of him as anyone other than my father. This begs the question, though... Who is my father by blood?
  • Hinoka: I can't help you there. Mother didn't say anything about him in her letter.
  • Avatar: I see... Still, this means that you're not actually my sister...
  • Hinoka: I'm sorry, Avatar. Maybe I shouldn't have told you...
  • Avatar: No, I'm glad you did! I'm shocked, to be sure, but now that I know the truth, I can be honest, too. Hinoka... I love you. I love you more than anyone else in the world.
  • Hinoka: Really? Are you certain? If you are... Well, there is no one I would rather be with than you.
  • Avatar: I am. And I feel exactly the same way.
  • Hinoka: Avatar... I never dreamed this would happen. It makes all those days I spent planning how to rescue you all the more meaningful. I'm so glad that we feel the same...
  • Avatar: We'll never be separated again. Ever. I'll always be by your side.
  • Hinoka: Me too. I promise to always protect you.
  • Hinoka: You've never left my mind since the day you've been gone. Never leave me again.

  • Takumi: Yeah, the thing is...I'm busy right now. Practicing. Can't you see?
  • Avatar: Yes, I can see that. But it seems you just don't care to get to know me at all.
  • Takumi: You hit the nail on the head. I know I SHOULD trust you, since we're siblings. But we were raised worlds apart, so we don't really have much in common after all.
  • Avatar: I see. You remember, of course, our shared history. And that we are fighting for the same cause.
  • Takumi: And YOU remember, of course, that you grew up with the enemy.
  • Avatar: Be that as it may, surely I have proven my loyalty by now. There's got to be a way to convince you... Hmm. How would you feel about training me on the bow?
  • Takumi: I don't see the point.
  • Avatar: Well, it'll give us a chance to get to know each other a little bit. And then, in the next battle, I can more effectively demonstrate my loyalty.
  • Takumi: Very well. You get one shot at this, understand? If you start slowing me down, I'm outta here.

  • Avatar: OK...I'm doing my best! Just give me a moment to concentrate...
  • Takumi: What was that? Who asked who for help? Don't tell me you're already whining!
  • Avatar: No! I can do this. We're at war—I can't give up now.
  • Takumi: *sigh* Fine, I guess we can take a break.
  • Avatar: Whew. I must admit, I'm grateful for the rest. It's harder to bend a bow than I imagined.
  • Takumi: Well, of course. Did you think it would be easy?
  • Avatar: To be honest...sort of. But, that's only because you make it look so easy, Takumi.
  • Takumi: Are you being sarcastic?
  • Avatar: No, I mean it. Watching you, it looks effortless. But when I pick up the bow... I realize that I need to work on my stance, my strength, and my concentration. Still, I've already improved. Wouldn't you agree?
  • Takumi: Yes. You are making progress. But make no mistake—you have a long way to go!
  • Avatar: Of course. So, why don't we get back to work?
  • Takumi: Very well. OK, get into position, take a deep breath, slowly pull back...
  • Avatar: Ow!
  • Takumi: What happened?!
  • Avatar: Sorry! My hand slipped. Oh, damn. I'm bleeding.
  • Takumi: How bad is it?
  • Avatar: Not bad. I'll be fine...
  • Takumi: Let me see. Nope, you're done for today.
  • Avatar: But I want to keep practicing! This is my chance to learn from you!
  • Takumi: I said you're done. You can't hit anything with an injury like that. And besides...you'll get other chances.
  • Avatar: Do you mean that, Takumi? I'd be really grateful for the opportunity. I guess I'll go get this bandaged up...

  • Takumi: You're really getting into this, aren't you?
  • Avatar: You know...I am! It was devastatingly hard at first, but you're a good teacher. I do hope I'm coming along fast enough and not just wasting your time.
  • Takumi: Don't worry, you're not.
  • Avatar: Really?
  • Takumi: No. You're actually really talented. And as much as I hate to do this...I have to apologize. I've seen your dedication to Hoshido with my own two eyes. So, please forgive me for doubting you in the first place. I will gladly continue your training as soon as you're ready.

  • Avatar: Huh?! What are you saying?

  • Avatar: What did the letter say?
  • Sakura: It was sh-shocking! It said that we're not blood related...not even a tiny bit.
  • Avatar: But you and Ryoma and the others... you're all King Sumeragi's children...
  • Sakura: That's right...but you're not his son. Your mother, Queen Mikoto, came to Hoshido to ask my father for help. She brought along a baby—you. My father knew you weren't his son... but he loved Queen Mikoto, so he raised you as his own. He really did love you.
  • Avatar: King Sumeragi...must have cared for me a lot to raise me as his own. But if it's not him, then...who is my real father?
  • Sakura: I'm sorry, but Mother didn't say anything about that in her letter.
  • Avatar: Oh...
  • Sakura: I'm s-sorry. It was selfish of me to tell you all this for my own benefit.
  • Avatar: Don't apologize, Sakura. I'm relieved to learn the truth. As shocking as it is to find out we're not blood related, it makes me happy.
  • Sakura: It d-does?
  • Avatar: It does. After all...I love you too. Why do you think I offered to help you with conversation practice? It was just an excuse to spend more time with you.
  • Sakura: Oh, Avatar! I'm so h-happy!
  • Avatar: Since we're not siblings, we shouldn't hide our feelings anymore. It may be hard, but we'll cross that bridge together. I promise to protect you.
  • Sakura: Oh! Then I...I promise to protect you too! Just swear you'll never leave me again.
  • Avatar: I swear, I won't ever leave your side.
  • Sakura: I've never felt this way before. My heart is beating so fast! I'm yours forever.

  • Saizo: (appears) Hmph...took you long enough to notice. If this was the battlefield, you'd be dead.
  • Avatar: What?! Why would I be looking over my shoulder here in camp? And what in the world were you doing spying on me?
  • Saizo: Keeping a very close eye on you.
  • Avatar: Huh?
  • Saizo: It wasn't long ago that you lived as royalty of Nohr. How convenient that we shuld be drawn into your orbit now. The moment you try anything, I'll be the first to know.
  • Avatar: Except you won't, because I'm not going to try anything! My brother didn't put you up to this, did he?
  • Saizo: Hmph. This has nothing to do with Lord Ryoma. I'm doing it on my own initiative. Though we fight side by side at times, I'm not prepared to trust you yet.
  • Avatar: I see.
  • Saizo: If you take even one step out of line, I will act accordingly. Remember that before you get any cute ideas.
  • Avatar: I never intended to. Isn't there anything I can do to win your trust?
  • Saizo: Prove yourself to me. I'm keeping thorough surveillance notes on you, you know.
  • Avatar: Yes, the "Surveillance Notes - Avatar" on your notebook suggested as much. Do you...keep books like this on a lot of our soldiers?
  • Saizo: That's classified. All you need to know is that I'm watching you. Always.
  • Avatar: Even when-
  • Saizo: ESPECIALLY then. (leaves)

  • Saizo: (appears) All right.
  • Avatar: Gah! Warn me next time, Saizo!
  • Saizo: I don't make a habit of advertising my presence. You should learn to sense it. Something seems wrong, though. You've been looking pale and fatigued lately. Not that we really need you, but... I worry that you'll drag the others down if you try to fight in that condition.
  • Avatar: Oh, haha...sorry. I'm just tired out from looking over my shoulder all the time.
  • Saizo: What?
  • Avatar: You still don't trust me, do you?
  • Saizo: You've given me no reason to. I'm sure you'd love for me to stop watching you, but I know better. I have one eye, and it's staying fixed directly on you. ...Though I'm forced to admit that this is a problem I can't overlook.
  • Avatar: What problem? What are you talking about?! Whoa!
  • Saizo: Quiet. Where do you need these?
  • Avatar: Those are my things! I can carry them perfectly well myself.
  • Saizo: That's not what I saw. You are, however tenuously, an ally. I'm not so cruel as to let you lug these around by yourself. It is dishonourable to turn a blind eye to one in need of help. Are you impugning my honor?
  • Avatar: N-not at all... Thank you, Saizo.
  • Saizo: Don't think this means you're off the hook. More importantly, hurry and tell me where this trunk goes.
  • Avatar: Oh, er...that shed over there.

  • Saizo: What are you playing at, calling upon your watchman? This is very irregular.
  • Avatar: I'm not playing at anything. I just never had the chance to thank you for carrying my things. To remedy that, I brought some mint candies. Would you like one?
  • Saizo: C-candies...
  • Avatar: Is something wrong?
  • Saizo: I don't need your sweets! Eat them yourself.
  • Avatar: S-sorry... I had no idea. I thought you might like them, but clearly I don't know you very well. My apologies, Saizo. I'll find someone else to share them with.
  • Saizo: Stop biting your lip that way. You're making me feel guilty.
  • Avatar: That's easy for you to say, but...
  • Saizo: *sigh* All right. I'll come clean...
  • Avatar: What?
  • Saizo: I hate sweets.
  • Avatar: Really? Oh, come to think of it, I recall Ryoma mentioning that once. I had completely forgotten...
  • Saizo: It's not as if they're poison. They're just not to my taste.
  • Avatar: If that's why you refused the candy, is it safe to assume you don't hate me?
  • Saizo: ...
  • Avatar: I know you can't trust me because I was raised in enemy territory. But clinging to that conception of me is counterproductive. It may take time before we reach a true understanding of each other... But until then, could you try to have faith in me?
  • Saizo: ...Hmph. I'd already come to the same conclusion.
  • Avatar: What?
  • Saizo: My surveillance on you is over, effective from today. You have free rein from now on.
  • Avatar: Does this mean you trust me?
  • Saizo: I wouldn't go that far. It just means that I don't think a simpleton like you could be scheming anything.
  • Avatar: "Simpleton"? Don't hold back, Saizo... I'm glad you're starting to accept me, though.
  • Saizo: I still expect you to remain on your best behavior, of course.
  • Avatar: Of course. I wouldn't want to lose your trust, now that we're friends.
  • Saizo: Friends? Where did you get that idea?
  • Avatar: It seemed clear to me. Do you disagree?

  • Avatar: I agree with that sentiment, but I should be safe here, don't you think?
  • Kagero: What I mean is...it is absolutely vital that we keep you safe. After careful observation of the army, I've realized that you are critical to morale. I will keep an eye on you at all times to make sure nothing happens to you. This also helps my liege, Lord Ryoma.
  • Avatar: How does this help my brother?
  • Kagero: It would undoubtedly break his heart if something happened to you.
  • Avatar: You clearly care deeply for him. How long have you been his retainer?
  • Kagero: I've served him for some time, though I was under Lady Mikoto's command before that. Combined, I have spent most of my life in service to the Hoshidan royal family.
  • Avatar: I didn't know that...Well, I am grateful for your assistance, but...You aren't planning on following me around everywhere I go, are you?
  • Kagero: You will be under my protection day and night, without fail.

  • Kagero: I would not be able to live with myself if something happened while I did so.
  • Avatar: It's just that...I feel a little on edge, being watched all the time. If it gets to me, I can only imagine how draining it must be for you to do it.
  • Kagero: I've trained for years to perform all the tasks of a ninja, so it doesn't bother me. But...I understand your point, milord. I will make an effort to be more inconspicuous in the future.
  • Avatar: I appreciate that, Kagero. I know your job can't be an easy one...That reminds me...Do you mind if I ask you something about Ryoma and my mother?
  • Kagero: Go ahead. I'll answer as best I can.
  • Avatar: How well did Ryoma and my mother get along with one another? Not being blood related, I imagine they had to figure a few things out.
  • Kagero: As far as I could tell, they had a very cordial relationship.
  • Avatar: I'm glad to hear that.
  • Kagero: I should clarify, though, that they didn't simply start off that way. The two of them worked very hard to forge their relationship into what it was.
  • Avatar: What do you mean?
  • Kagero: When Lord Sumeragi married Lady Mikoto, it wasn't just the royal children affected. There were a large number of Hoshidans who felt uneasy about her becoming queen. Lord Ryoma saw this and took it upon himself to build a relationship with her.
  • Avatar: Oh, I see. He wanted to set an example for everyone else to follow. Heh, that sounds like something he would do.
  • Kagero: Lord Ryoma intended to make Lady Mikoto feel like she was welcome in Hoshido. From what I saw, he succeeded completely.
  • Avatar: That's reassuring. Thank you for sharing this with me, Kagero.

  • Kagero: Of course, but it is the duty of a retainer to work hard for their liege.
  • Avatar: That's true, but...I feel like you're far more diligent than any of the other retainers.
  • Kagero: ...
  • Avatar: There must be something deep down that motivates you.
  • Kagero: *sigh* My clan has loyally served the Hoshidan royal family for many years. It is my duty as a ninja to continue that tradition. Also...I have an older brother.
  • Avatar: You do? I didn't know that...
  • Kagero: He's been frail since birth. It would be impossible for him to do even the most simple of martial arts. However, as he is the eldest child, it was his duty to carry on the tradition. His condition led some to criticize our clan's loyalty. This hurt my brother more than anything else.
  • Avatar: ...
  • Kagero: So I serve in his place, working hard to prove to everyone that our clan is loyal. I have to protect my clan's honor.

  • Avatar: Well, thank you for protecting me.
  • Azama: Oh, please. It was nothing. I'm just happy that we've been blessed with this wonderful food source. Now, if you don't mid, it's best to flay the beast immediately. That way we can get the meat back to camp and into the kitchen while it's fresh.
  • Avatar: Actually, I kind of DO mind. You're going to flay it here? Right now? I ventured out here for some peace and quiet... And now I'm watching a bear be eviscerated.

  • Azama: Again, please don't concern yourself with such trivialities. Apology accepted.
  • Avatar: So, will it be another day of meditation for you?
  • Azama: Yes. I wish I could spend my whole life doing this. It's a good distraction from the ultimate and total futility of war.
  • Avatar: I see. So you don't believe there's value in defending our friends and family?
  • Azama: Oh ho! That's an interesting argument. I agree that it can be sad when another entity leaves this plane of existence. But I am comforted by the very nature of the universe! We are all mere manifestations of a much larger consciousness, of course.
  • Avatar: I don't know. Call me old fashioned, but I think this "plane of existence" is pretty special. Still, perhaps it IS wise to take some comfort in the absurdity of life.
  • Azama: Yes, that's exactly it! You know, you're much wiser than you look. Or act.
  • Avatar: Well, thank you. I think.
  • Azama: Now, if you don't mind... I would like some quiet time out here.

  • Setsuna: In that case, perhaps it would be easier to just pretend you don't see me next time? Lady Hinoka has always found me before, so I'll be OK.
  • Avatar: *sigh* That's not the point, Setsuna. You being caught in traps for hours isn't good for you—or for the group.

  • Hinata: Um... Nope... No...reason... None at all.
  • Avatar: Hinata, you could not possibly have said that any less convincingly. You couldn't even make eye contact.
  • Hinata: There isn't! Really! Honest! Oh! Say, since you're here, why don't we have a sparring match? What do ya think?
  • Avatar: I accept your challenge!
  • Hinata: Hehe! That's the spirit! Go get your sword and come back here. First one to get a clean hit wins!
  • Avatar: I look forward to it!

  • Avatar: *pant* Almost there... Just... five more laps!
  • Hinata: Lord Avatar... Why are you running circles around the practice grounds?
  • Avatar: Hi, Hinata! After I lost to you, I decided I needed to work on my fitness.
  • Hinata: Oh! You mean our match the other day? I wiped the floor with you!
  • Avatar: Yes you did. I think there are a lot of reasons why, so I decided to address them. For starters, I'm going to improve my stamina by running laps!
  • Hinata: Ah, I see. So you're actually a pretty hard worker, too. I'm a little surprised.
  • Avatar: Really? Why?
  • Hinata: I'd heard that you spent most of your time in your chambers, when you were in Nohr. I guess I didn't think running would appeal to you, is all. But you were pretty agile in our match, and now you're running laps... Kinda funny how different you are than I first thought.
  • Avatar: Heehee. I'm glad you got a chance to see a different side of me.
  • Hinata: Me too! Can I join you for a few laps? Watching you has put me in a running mood, too!
  • Avatar: Oh! Certainly! I don't mind at all.

  • Avatar: Did...did I just land a clean hit?
  • Hinata: ...Yeah. You finally got me.
  • Avatar: Heehee. That's awesome!
  • Hinata: Haha... Guess this means we got some talking to do.
  • Avatar: Oh? Are you actually going to tell me why you're training so hard, then?
  • Hinata: The reason is...I'm working toward a goal.
  • Avatar: A goal?
  • Hinata: Yeah. It's Lord Takumi.
  • Avatar: My brother? What about him?
  • Hinata: See, I come from a long line of warriors who have served Hoshido. Even before I learned to walk, I learned to use a katana. I learned quick, too. I thought that being Lord Takumi's retainer would be easy, too, but...
  • Avatar: But what?
  • Hinata: One day, he challenged me to a match. The rules were the same as ours. He even selected the katana as our weapon, so we'd be on equal terms. He absolutely destroyed me.
  • Avatar: You lost that badly?
  • Hinata: My head was spinning, he beat me so fast. Everybody knows Lord Takumi is skilled with a bow, but he's just as good with a katana. I was so mad at myself for losing and for underestimating him. I was a big hit to my pride. How am I supposed to protect him, if he can beat me? What was I even doing there? So I swore I would become as strong as him. That's what drives me to train.
  • Avatar: Thanks for sharing your story, Hinata.
  • Hinata: Someday, I'll be stronger than him, and I'll prove to everyone that I can protect him. Him and everyone else in Hoshido!
  • Avatar: I'll be cheering you on, Hinata!
  • Hinata: Heehee, thanks. Coming from you, that gives me a lot of confidence in my work. I hope you'll continue to practice with me.
  • Avatar: Of course!

  • Avatar: Hmm, this is unusual. I've actually done everything on my list for today. Maybe I'll sit back and have a cup of tea before I turn in. There is that book I've been meaning to finish, too...
  • Oboro: Lord Avatar! What are you doing in here?
  • Avatar: Wh - Oboro?! Why are you up so late?
  • Oboro: I'm cleaning. Couldn't you tell by my mop and broom?
  • Avatar: In the dead of night, though?
  • Oboro: Afraid so. I have my duties and training to attend to during the day. So this is really the only chance I get. Now stop loafing around, Lord Avatar. You're in the way. Don't you leave that book there! Take it with you!
  • Avatar: Urgh...so much for a relaxing evening...I suppose the chores must be done, even if it is nearly midnight. Is there anything I can do to help you?
  • Oboro: ...
  • Avatar: Oboro...? Did you hear the question?

  • Oboro: Oh...Lord Avatar.

  • Oboro: S-sorry...
  • Avatar: Oboro, is everything OK? You were staring off into the woods for a moment.
  • Oboro: Yeah. Everything's fine.
  • Avatar: I'm not convinced. Your attention was wandering last time, too. Is something bothering you?
  • Oboro: Nothing that Lord Avatar should concern himself with.
  • Avatar: Don't worry about that. You shouldn't keep your troubles bottled up inside. I don't mind listening, at least.
  • Oboro: ...All right, since you insist. It's not a problem so much as a bad memory. When I was a kid, my parents ran a clothing shop in our village. We were out trading in Nohr when bandits attacked and killed them both. I hid in the wagon, and fortunately the bandits didn't notice me.
  • Avatar: I never knew...
  • Oboro: It all happened on a moonless night, just like this one. I can't help but remember when the sky gets black.
  • Avatar: Which explains why your face was so stormy. I'm sorry, Oboro. Here I am, notionally a Nohrian, asking you to open up to me. It was insensitive.
  • Oboro: N-not at all! You have nothing to feel guilty for, Lord Avatar. It's the bandits who are to blame. They're fiends in human shape...

  • Oboro: Yes. Sorry to disturb you at this hour, but I'd appreciate your help.

  • Oboro: Well, better safe than sorry, they say. Come on, Lord Avatar, don't just stand there. Help or get out of the way!
  • Avatar: I know what you're doing, Oboro. You're staying busy to pretend that nothing bothers you during the night, aren't you?
  • Oboro: ...
  • Avatar: Is it because spending a quiet night alone reminds you of the night your parents died?
  • Oboro: D-don't be silly! There are all kinds of reasons a girl would spend every night doing chores.
  • Avatar: But I've noticed you tend to glance grimly out at the forest while you do these chores.
  • Oboro: Th-that's because...um...
  • Avatar: Sorry. I wasn't trying to overstep my boundaries. But you seem desperate somehow, and it makes my heart ache to see.
  • Oboro: Hrgh...
  • Avatar: You don't need to try so hard. It won't bring your parents back...you have your master, and me, and all the others here to help you.
  • Oboro: Haha...you saw right through me, Lord Avatar. No matter how hard I try not to be, I'm a mess. I put up a front so I don't fall apart, and I keep people away with my stare...but it was never going to work forever. I just can't do it.
  • Avatar: Oboro...no one cares if you're a mess! We all have problems. We'll all help you through yours.
  • Oboro: Lord Avatar...
  • Avatar: If you're scared on the front lines, there's plenty to contribute in the back. If you really wants, you can just stay here and do the chores. Everyone knows you as a kind person who always looks out for her comrades. So let us look out for you. Come to us anytime you want.
  • Oboro: Lord Avatar...you think they'll help me if I ask?
  • Avatar: I know they will. An army is founded on people not having to struggle alone.
  • Oboro: ...I never saw it like that before. Thank you...so much. I think I was shutting myself out for no reason. I feel a little better now.
  • Avatar: Good. You shouldn't hesitate to show your vulnerable side around your friends.

  • Avatar: That's good. It shows you're growing.
  • Oboro: Well, I still make that scowl sometimes. I see a Nohrian and I can't help myself.
  • Avatar: Hmm...well, just be aware that no everyone in Nohr is a villain. And I'm not saying that in self-defense.
  • Oboro: Yeah, I know.
  • Avatar: I think we should judge people by what's in their hearts, not where they're from. As Hoshidan royalty raised in Nohr, I hope to prove that to you.
  • Oboro: Mind proving that to me up close, Lord Avatar? It would be easier to see if I could stay at your side from now on...
  • Avatar: If that will help, of course.

  • Oboro: Or maybe you don't want someone as fussy and difficult as me...
  • Avatar: No, don't be silly! I love you too. I love the way you're always thinking about the best way to help other people. That's why I wanted to help you-to repay all the kindness you've shown!

  • Hana: Eek!! Oh, it's you. Do you need me for something?
  • Avatar: Wait, did you say "eek" when you saw me? That's not the reaction I get very often... Never mind. Sakura isn't over here.
  • Hana: Oh. Well, thanks for letting me know. Good-bye, then.
  • Avatar: Hang on—just like that?! Wait a minute, Hana!
  • Hana: What is it? I really need to find Lady Sakura...
  • Avatar: I feel like there's some pretty intense animosity coming from you. Did I do something to slight you in some way?
  • Hana: ... Yes, you did.
  • Avatar: I can't think of what it could be, but I apologize for it just the same...
  • Hana: Lady Sakura has spent years being sad over your kidnapping. I've watched her try and hide the tears countless times. And I don't like someone who makes my best friend cry!
  • Avatar: What?! Sakura cried because of me? She's never said anything to me...
  • Hana: It's pointless to ask her—I doubt she'd talk to you about it anyway... Really, I feel like I'm wasting my time even explaining this to you.

  • Hana: Hya! Hah! Hiyaah!!
  • Avatar: Hello, Miss Hana—in the middle of some intense training?
  • Hana: *Huff... puff...* Lord Avatar. If you're here to ask about Lady Sakura, then you can stop right now. It's an issue between you and Lady Sakura. Don't try to get information from me.
  • Avatar: That's not what I'm here for. I'm here because I wanted to talk to you.
  • Hana: ... Hrah!!!
  • Avatar: Whoa whoa!! ... That's dangerous! Even with a wooden sword, you could do some serious damage!
  • Hana: Well dodged. All right. You can ask me one question.
  • Avatar: What? Are you... Are you seriously only letting me ask because I dodged that attack?
  • Hana: Hurry up if you have a question. Otherwise I need to get back to my training.
  • Avatar: OK... If I'm correct, you come from a family of samurai that served the Hoshido kingdom.
  • Hana: That's correct. So what?
  • Avatar: So you'd say that a large part of why you work hard to train your mind and spirit... is to pay respect to your family's samurai history, right?
  • Hana: Of course.
  • Avatar: I think that's terrific.
  • Hana: What do you mean?
  • Avatar: I grew up locked away in a remote castle. I didn't know why I was there, and I had no ambition because I was isolated from life... So I'm fascinated by someone like you, who always knew where they were headed.
  • Hana: I have someone who inspired me—my father. He was a model samurai.
  • Avatar: What kind of person was he?
  • Hana: He devoted everything to King Sumeragi, who ruled Hoshido at the time. More than once he saved the king's life... either by slaying those who threatened the king, or by protecting him from danger. He gave the king everything he could, whenever he could.
  • Avatar: ...
  • Hana: The stories of my father's accomplishments fill me with pride. He passed from this world while he was protecting the king. But even in death he fulfilled his purpose—his devotion to the king symbolized his life. For a samurai, to die in service is really the best possible death.
  • Avatar: ...I see.
  • Hana: I live my life the way I do because I want to honor everything my father stood for.
  • Avatar: I understand your mindset much better. Sorry if this sounds rude, but I don't think dying itself is something to be respected. Even if you protect your master, I don't think it's wise to throw your life away.
  • Hana: What?! Are you saying my father was foolish to do what he did?!
  • Avatar: No, I wasn't trying to say that at all! Your father was very admirable. He protected King Sumeragi to the very end... But I wouldn't want to follow in his exact footsteps.
  • Hana: Well, it's easy to criticize someone's actions after they've made them! I'll never forgive you for ridiculing my father's honorable sacrifice!

  • Avatar: No... I want to apologize. It was simply rude of me to not even consider your feelings before speaking.
  • Hana: Stop it! You're just making me look like someone deserving of pity!
  • Avatar: No... that's not what I'm trying to say... I just thought that Sakura might be crushed if you did what your father did... That's all!
  • Hana: Lady Sakura?! What are you talking about now?
  • Avatar: Before, you were mad at me for making Sakura cry... I can see why you'd respect your father for his sacrifice and want to honor him. But imagine if you died protecting your liege. Sakura would be crushed. She would never want that to happen, and she'd probably have trouble moving on. I can't stand thinking about a future like that, and I bet that you can't either. Right?
  • Hana: Well... I hadn't considered that...
  • Avatar: I understand it's really important thing for a samurai to protect her master. But... isn't there more to protecting your master than just the physical act?
  • Hana: You're right. I don't want to see Sakura cry anymore either...
  • Avatar: Hana...that's all I was trying to convey before. I'm sorry I didn't do it well.
  • Hana: It's OK, Lord Avatar. Thank you for this conversation. I'm sorry I was hostile toward you.

  • Hana: Why would you say that? You have such a strange expression on you face. Do you need to use the chamber pot?
  • Avatar: What?! No!
  • Hana: Heehee. Then what's the matter?
  • Avatar: I was hoping you'd be able to guess, but I'll go ahead and just tell you. Hana, listen closely. I told you the other day that I didn't want you to die. But I realized later, as I thought about what I said, that I had more reasons... More than just for the well-being of you or Sakura.
  • Hana: What is that supposed to mean?!
  • Avatar: Part of why I said what I said was selfish. Because Ilike you. I don't want you to die... because I have feelings for you.
  • Hana: Y-you do?!
  • Avatar: I said some high and mighty stuff the other day, and I'm sorry about that. Afterward... I realized in my heart of hearts... I was just selfishly thinking of my feelings for you.
  • Hana: Oh, I never knew... ... Oh jezz, this is so embarrassing! I mean, for me! This is the first time anyone has confessed their feelings for me!
  • Avatar: Imagine how I feel!
  • Hana: But I'm happy. I'm so happy.
  • Avatar: Then... you like me too?
  • Hana: Yes, I like you a lot. I mean, you taught me something about being a good samurai. I love you, in fact!
  • Avatar: Just like you've protected Sakura all this time, I'd like to be able to protect you now.
  • Hana: I'll protect you too! Oh, are we going to make this a competition? I won't lose! I'll protect you just like I protect Sakura, because you're important to me!
  • Avatar: Oh that reminds me. You'll basically be an older sister to her now... I hope you can handle that responsability!
  • Hana: Uh... Oh, gosh! She... she'd be my little sister!
  • Avatar: Is that going to make things awkward?
  • Hana: No, sorry, that was excitement, not terror! I mean, not only are you and I connected to each other in such a wonderful way, but... now I'll share a new and amazing connection with Sakura, too! Because of you, two really great things have happened today...
  • Avatar: Hana... I'm glad you're happy. I love you more than anyone.

  • Subaki: In that case, why not spar with me? There is no better way to learn and improve.
  • Avatar: Really? Would you mind?
  • Subaki: Of course not! I would do anything in my power to aid Lady Sakura's brother! Besides, I've mastered every class of weapon. Reacting to your moves shouldn't prove overly difficult for me. *grumble*

  • Subaki: Oh, don't be ridiculous. There's no need to trouble yourself over me.

  • Subaki: Wh-what do you mean...?
  • Avatar: OK, so clearly it does.
  • Subaki: Listen, this is the only way to make sure that my stomach never growls again. If I'm always eating, I'll never be hungry.
  • Avatar: Subaki, you can't keep eating like that! It's not healthy. Besides, it will just make you get bigger and bigger. Then you won't be able to train anymore. I know you wouldn't want that to happen.
  • Subaki: Oh, don't worry about me. I've already calculated how much food I need to stay in fighting shape.
  • Avatar: Right... But still, I'm concerned.
  • Subaki: I never meant to alarm anyone. Listen, if it really bothers you, I'll give up on my new fitness regimen.
  • Avatar: Good. Trust me, it's for the best.
  • Subaki: But what do I do now? I'd be horrified if someone ever heard my stomach growl again.

  • Avatar: What do you mean?
  • Subaki: You may not know this about me, but I can't stand to fail in front of people. My goal in life is to achieve perfection in every possible way. Though it's wildly painful to admit, even I sometimes make a mistake. But I never know what to do when that occurs.
  • Avatar: Really?
  • Subaki: Yes. But like I said, this very, very rarely happens to me.
  • Avatar: I know that it's hard to be vulnerable around other people. But I promise, I'm not going to make fun of you. I just want to help.
  • Subaki: I'm no good at getting help when I need it. That's the problem with seeking perfection. You always feel like you have to do everything alone. I have to admit that it feels good to get all of this off my chest.
  • Avatar: Huh. So that's what this has all been about. You just needed a counselor.
  • Subaki: Maybe. So, Lord Avatar... Now that you understand me so well, I'm going to count on you for advice.
  • Avatar: That's fine, Subaki.

  • Hayato: I've never written a letter before, OK? I just don't know what I'm supposed to say! Are you happy now?!
  • Avatar: Calm down. Now I understand why your letter was only half-written.
  • Hayato: Will you show me how to finish it, Avatar?
  • Avatar: Huh? How can I help?
  • Hayato: You're the one who's been encouraging me to write. So come on, help me. It's basically your responsibility now. And it has to be a great one!
  • Avatar: That's a strange way to ask someone for a favor, Hayato. But I suppose helping you is probably the right thing to do.
  • Hayato: Of course it is. Let's get to work!
  • Avatar: OK!

  • Hayato: Avatar, what exactly is supposed to go into writing a letter? I don't really know where to start.
  • Avatar: Well you're writing to the Wind Tribe. Perhaps you should let them know how you're doing. Have you gotten anything down on the page yet?
  • Hayato: Well, I explained how to us the charm that I'm sending and what it does.
  • Avatar: That's not a letter—it's merely a list of instructions. Letters should be personal. They should let the reader know what you're getting up to.
  • Hayato: It has to be personal, huh?
  • Avatar: Yeah, preferably. Oh, I have an idea. Tell them that you can finally sleep after you hear a scary story now!
  • Hayato: Wh-what are you talking about?! I've never had a problem with s-scary stories!
  • Avatar: Oh? That's not the rumor I heard. But fine, I'll think of something else. I'm sure they would be happy to hear about how much you've grown.
  • Hayato: No, absolutely not! I would much rather write about my accomplishments on the battlefield.
  • Avatar: Hmm, that's not a terrible idea. I saw you take on a whole group of Faceless just the other day. You really have been a wonderful asset in the war, Hayato.
  • Hayato: Heh, you think so? That gives me some good ideas for my letter, actually.
  • Avatar: War stories it is. Good luck with your writing! Let me know if you need any help.
  • Hayato: OK, thank you. Say, maybe you should write a letter too.
  • Avatar: Oh? You think so?
  • Hayato: Yeah! It feels strange to be the only one writing one. Maybe you could entertain me with some of your tall tales? I love to read stories.
  • Avatar: So you want a letter, huh? Sure, I suppose I can do that.
  • Hayato: Great! That way, we can see who's the better writer! You or me! But just so you know, I don't plan on losing this competition.

  • Hayato: I finished my letter and sent it along with my charm to the Wind Tribe. I just received their reply, actually.
  • Avatar: That's great! What did they say?
  • Hayato: Apparently everyone in the village was pleased with the charm. It sounds like it was very effective. They also delighted in hearing about my success on the battlefield.
  • Avatar: That's wonderful. Are you glad that you sent them the letter?
  • Hayato: Of course. Clearly my letter went over incredibly well. I'd say that makes me the clear winner of our little letter battle, don't you think? That being said, I need to thank you. The letter was your idea, after all.
  • Avatar: I'm glad that I could help. Oh, I almost forgot. I finished my letter. Would you like to read it?
  • Hayato: Hmph. I guess so. Hand it over. Wh-what is this supposed to mean?
  • Avatar: Hm? Is something wrong?
  • Hayato: Why is my name all over your letter? "Hayato has the finest handwriting. His charms are the best around!" This is totally embarrassing! I thought you were going to talk about yourself!
  • Avatar: The thing is, I don't know what else to write about. You already know about what's been going on with recent events. I couldn't think of anything else to say.
  • Hayato: That may be the case, but still... It's not very interesting to read two letters all about myself! I know what I have to do. I'll have to sit down and write another letter!
  • Avatar: Huh? What do you mean?
  • Hayato: I'm going to write a letter all about you! Then we can both be totally embarrassed. Maybe I'll even throw in one of my charms for good measure.
  • Avatar: Heh, it's almost like you and I have become pen pals or something.
  • Hayato: Yeah you're right. I never realized that I enjoyed writing so much. First I'll jot down one for you, and then maybe I'll write to someone else too. You better look forward to it!

  • Avatar: I was wondering if you could tell me a little more about my mother.
  • Orochi: Lady Mikoto—a remarkable woman. I'd be delighted to share my memories of her.
  • Avatar: I barely had a chance to get to know my mother. So little time, because of what I... Hmm. Anyway, could you share some stories about her?
  • Orochi: Trust me when I say she wouldn't have blamed you for what happened. And she'd be saddened if you blamed yourself, Lord Avatar. But yes, a story—a funny one! That's what we need.
  • Avatar: She seemed so graceful. You know funny stories about her?
  • Orochi: Oh, she was endlessly hilarious. One time, I recall catching her swimming— with her slippers on! She'd forget she had two chopsticks in hand—and eat with four! Some might say she was absentminded. Not I. She was a dreamer of dreams. So what if Lady Mikoto had her silly mishaps. We loved her for it.
  • Avatar: Please, go on.
  • Orochi: Once she sat cross-legged for so long, her legs went to sleep. And I am talking a DEEP sleep! She stood up before the court—and careened right into a fountain!
  • Avatar: I wish I could have been there. Er, at least to help her out of the water.
  • Orochi: Your mother was truly unique, like a wise sage and an accidental jester. She had the sweetest voice, but the things she would say... Honestly, that dear woman—she really was a hoot.

  • Orochi: Hello there, Lord Avatar.
  • Avatar: Oh, Orochi! Thank you for sharing those funny stories about my mother last time.
  • Orochi: I fear I made her out to be a buffoon. Far from the truth.
  • Avatar: You did no such thing. You revealed a side I would never have known.
  • Orochi: But she had many facets. That woman was a gem. I'd like to tell you about the side of her that was kindness itself.
  • Avatar: I'm all ears.
  • Orochi: She was kind enough to treat me with the greatest respect. My family has long served as diviners at the royal palace. But we'd been treated very poorly.
  • Avatar: I can't believe that. Really?
  • Orochi: We diviners tell as many bad fortunes as good, which can make us unpopular.
  • Avatar: How unjust. To speak the truth, and be blamed for it?
  • Orochi: Indeed. But my fate was changed when I met Lady Mikoto. She treated me like her own daughter. No matter what fortunes I told her.
  • Avatar: A rare soul, I guess.
  • Orochi: The rarest! Why, once I saw enemies outside the palace... I rushed at them, tried to drive them off by myself, and got hurt badly. She wept at my bedside that night, and many nights after that. Once I got better, Lady Mikoto said I must never run off like that again. To make sure that I didn't, she made me one of her personal attendants.
  • Avatar: She sounds like perfection.
  • Orochi: Lady Mikoto was so kind, being in her presence was like basking in the sun.
  • Avatar: A beautiful memory. Thank you for sharing it.

  • Avatar: Oh?
  • Orochi: She usually shone, one way or another, no matter when you saw her. But then I'd catch her alone, a shadow in her features... She fell into dark spells, and I believe she was always thinking of...
  • Avatar: Me.
  • Orochi: Yes, you—or so I believe. She was agonizing over the loss of her son. Before her people, and at court, she was always bright as the sun. Yet she was unafraid to show this troubled side to me and Kagero.
  • Avatar: My poor mother...
  • Orochi: I wasn't sure whether to tell you. It's not a happy memory. And yet, in a way, it is. That was the side of her that loved you—missed you—deeply.
  • Avatar: Th-thank you, Orochi. I suspect no one knew her quite as well as you. That side of her, I feel it too. But in the darkness is love. I must do what I can to defend all those she also feared losing.
  • Orochi: I know she'd want you to take heart from all this loss.
  • Avatar: You're among those she held most dearly, Orochi.
  • Orochi: Perhaps. In any case, I loved Lady Mikoto very much. She was like a mother to me. So, of course, I feel very close to you. I hope I...haven't overstepped.

  • Avatar: I wanted to ask you why you insist so much on remaining aloof.
  • Rinkah: If I do, will you leave me be?
  • Avatar: I...I guess I can do that.
  • Rinkah: *sigh* Very well. I keep my distance because it is the law of the Flame Tribe. As you know, we worship the God of the Flame. To honor our God, we keep a fire in the village burning at all times. This is a challenge, and so in order to keep it burning we have effected many laws. One such law directs us to avoid contact with outsiders as much as possible. This is why we live in isolation—and why I would prefer you quit prying.
  • Avatar: How does living in isolation keep the flame burning?
  • Rinkah: It's always an outsider that extinguishes the flame of life. They don't respect it, and so foolishly they run headlong into taboo acts.
  • Avatar: Like putting out the flame?
  • Rinkah: That is one of them, yes. And it has terrible consequences for the transgressor. Once, a long time ago, the sacred flame was extinguished by an enemy tribe. They only wished to cause us harm, but they angered the God of the Flame. The holy mountain then erupted, and fire fell from the sky. Lava decimated the enemy tribe, and by the end of it, there was no trace of them left. The stories say our own tribe suffered greatly as well, however.
  • Avatar: I see. But then why were you siding with Hoshido against Nohr?
  • Rinkah: Because our chief—my father—decided we should cooperate with Hoshido. A fighter should fully commit themselves to every battle, it's true. But to be honest, I had grave misgivings about this whole venture. Bad omens. And those feelings turned out to be well- founded. As you know, I was taken captive.

  • Avatar: When we spoke of your capture at Nohr's hands...you seemed angry. Do you hate having been caught so much?
  • Rinkah: Of course I do. Being captured is far more shameful a fate than death to a warrior. I wish I had perished that day. I would have retained my dignity, at least.
  • Avatar: But if you'd died, we'd never have met and worked together.
  • Rinkah: What?
  • Avatar: We're at war. Nothing is certain. One day we celebrate, the next we may be mourning. But I have to believe there's some kind of order to things. And so I think we were fated to meet as we did, and that we should be grateful for it.
  • Rinkah: I see. I AM grateful we met. But I still feel regret and anger at my capture. It is difficult to be grateful for a misfortune, is it not?
  • Avatar: But in the end it wasn't a misfortune, right? It all worked out. We should thank fate for that—for all the ways it sees fit to connect us. All of us. And I think fate has given you a unique and incredible opportunity.
  • Rinkah: How so?
  • Avatar: It's rare the Flame Tribe interacts with outsiders, right? Then perhaps you should take advantage of this chance to learn about the world. About other people, other cultures, lands, arts, history, technologies... Your people may not have an opportunity like this again for a long, long time. And I think it would be a terrible shame were you to let it slip past you. But...I admit I may feel this way because I spent my entire life trapped in isolation. So the choice is yours. I won't press you further.

  • Avatar: By all means, continue. Your advice has been invaluable to us. You are a man of singular talent and genius.
  • Yukimura: I would not go that far, milord. I merely had good teachers. The knowledge I possess was given to me by King Sumeragi and my father.
  • Avatar: You learned from both of them?
  • Yukimura: Yes. I learned the fundamentals from my father, who was minister in his day. Later, i was sent to serve the king as an aide. I saw firsthand how he tooks my father's strategies and took them even further.
  • Avatar: Is your father still around?
  • Yukimura: No, he died on his sickbed when I was still quite young. However, I spent much of my youth poring overa ll the papers he left behind. Battle strategies, fighting techiniques, tactical manuals—all sorts of things. Afterward, the king more or less took me under his wing. I suppose you could say that King Sumeragi was like a second father to me.
  • Avatar: I know he... He died trying to protect me. I'm so sorry. It's my fault we both lost him.

B Support Edit

  • Avatar: Yukimura, what tactics would you suggest we use in this situation? If we pursued, it would leave our allies over there vulnerable, which seems reckless. However, it would also take out a huge number of the enemy in a single action. And the gains made from their sacrifice might save many lives in the fights to come.

  • Yukimura: The one and only time that King Sumeragi scolded me.
  • Avatar: He scolded you? What could you have possibly done to make him upset?
  • Yukimura: It was during a discussion much like this, where we considered different scenarios. I developed a plan involving puppets and traps that wuld decimate the enemy. It was an extremely effective plan, saving many of us while eliminating the enemy. However, when I recommended the plan, King Sumeragi grew very angry.
  • Avatar: What did he say?
  • Yukimura: "It's not a matter of killing as many people as possible. That is not what war is about." He placed much importance and value on the lives of enemy soldiers. He did not believe in killing any wh surrendered. Nor did he approve of killing without giving a man a chance to surrender. It was this latter point my plan was in conflict with.

  • Yukimura: At the time, I thought he was being a soft-herted fool. But now I see his wisdom. The plan you presented to me tries to reduce the bloodshed of your own allies. But you should not be so quick to shed enemy blood needlessly either. Conquerors make a wasteland and call it a peace. This is not our way.
  • Avatar: I think I understand.
  • Yukimura: Many people naively think reason and logic are opposed to emotion and compassion. In truth, the former cannot exist without the latter. The simplest decision are, at bottom, rooted in the inner life of the individual. A person cannot walk across a room without asserting some kind of value. I believe that understanding this is the hallmark of a master tactician.
  • Avatar: I will remember your words, Yukimura. Your words... but also those of my father.
  • Yukimura: I believe that would please him greatly.

  • Avatar: Yukimura, do you have a moment?
  • Yukimura: What do you need, Lord Avatar?
  • Avatar: I've been thinking a lot after out last conversation, and I want to say something. My father i no longer with us because of me. And I am tremendously sorry I caused you such pain.
  • Yukimura: Hm? Didn't I tell you the other day that you needn't say such things?
  • Avatar: Even so, I only realized after our talk just how large a role he played in others' live. Not just in my family's lives, or even in all the people of Hoshido's lives. But in the lives of those he met and knew personally, simply as a man. And, in particular... I realized just how important he must have been to you. You looked so happy and peaceful while you were talking about him... So I DO feel I need to apologie to you.
  • Yukimura: Milord... The truth is, when I heard that Lord Sumeragi died, I indeed resented you for it.
  • Avatar: Yukimura...
  • Yukimura: I was still very immature, I must admit. But as I grew older, those feelings faded. And in their place, a new respect for the king arose. Lord Sumeragi fulfilled his greatest duty as a father by protecting his son. Now I feel his end was one of the few befitting a man of his integrity and virtue.
  • Avatar: I'm not sure it's my place to say this, but I think he would be happy to hear that.
  • Yukimura: Thank you, Lord Avatar. It does me good to hear you say that as well.
  • Avatar: He was a father to both of us. As his sons, let us strive to live up to his example.
  • Yukimura: Yes, and to do so in all things we are and all that we may someday become. As warriors, as statesmen, as fathers... All things.
  • Avatar: Yes. I believe we can do it, so long as when one of us falls the other helps them up.
  • Yukimura: You can rely on me, milord.
  • Avatar: And you on me, Yukimura.

With Reina Edit

  • Avatar: Reina, wait! You dropped something!
  • Reina: Hm? Oh! My apologies. I should be more careful.
  • Avatar: Is that an apron?
  • Reina: Yes. I've been asked to help out with chores, so...
  • Avatar: Chores?
  • Reina: Yes. You know - cooking, cleaning, laundry, waste disposal, all that.
  • Avatar: Oh? I can see why they'd ask for your help. You look like you could handle anything.
  • Avatar: But are you sure you're OK with doing that?
  • Avatar: You're not obligated to... and it doesn't seem like the sort of thing you'd enjoy.
  • Reina: Thank you for looking out for me, but it's really no trouble.
  • Avatar: All right. If you say so...
  • Reina: Now, if you'll excuse me. I've some stews to prepare.
  • Avatar: Good luck! 

B SupportEdit

  • Reina: Lord Avatar? You have a strange look on your face.
  • Avatar: Oh, sorry. I guess I was just thinking this is so different from my image of you.
  • Reina: Your image of me?
  • Avatar: Yeah. Usually I think of you as fierce and bloodthirsty, like you are in the field.
  • Avatar: But after the fighting's over, you put on an apron and it's like you're everyone's mom.
  • Avatar: The change is so sudden that it's a little jarring sometimes.
  • Reina: Ah, I see. It's true - I find no greater joy in life than that I feel when I am fighting.
  • Reina: Some say I become battle crazed, and I can't say they're wrong.
  • Reina: But I do still like to serve others in this way too.
  • Avatar: Any particular reason?
  • Reina: ... I am the daughter of some well-known magistrates in Hoshido.
  • Reina: They never wanted this life for me. They wanted me to live a peaceful, domestic one.
  • Reina: I wasn't allowed to touch toy weapons, let alone real ones.
  • Avatar: So you lived a sheltered life, then?
  • Reina: I suppose you could put it that way. But I was quite the tomboy.
  • Reina: One of my favorite pastimes was watching the soldiers practice.
  • Reina: Sometimes when my parents were busy, I'd get them to let me come with them.
  • Reina: It wasn't long until I was slaying Faceless with the best of them. I loved it.
  • Avatar: I believe it. You're a force to be recokened with.
  • Reina: But when my parents found out about it, they sent me to serve in the castle.
  • Reina: My parents gave this apron to me before I left, as a parting gift.
  • Reina: They'd hoped I would learn to become a proper lady and forget about fighting.
  • Reina: However, when I got to the castle, I told the guard captain I wanted to be a knight.
  • Avatar: I see.
  • Reina: Oh no! I can't believe it's already this late. I need to start preparing dinner.
  • Reina: My apologies, Lord Avatar. Perhaps we could pick this up some other time.
  • Avatar: Sure, I'd love to.

A SupportEdit

  • Avatar: Reina, do you have a moment?
  • Reina: Certainly, Lord Avatar.
  • Avatar: I was wondering if we could pick up where we left off the other day.
  • Reina: Oh, about my becoming a knight? Of course.
  • Reina: It's not a very interesting tale, but I'm more than happy to share.
  • Reina: It didn't take long for me to be accepted into the guard as a knght.
  • Reina: Once accepted, I devoted my entire being to my training.
  • Reina: I started as a pegasus knight, but quickly distinguished myself from my peers.
  • Reina: I soon began serving Lady Mikoto and was assigned to the kinshi knights.
  • Reina: I felt it was the greatest honor that could ever be bestowed upon me.
  • Reina: However, my parents felt... differently.
  • Avatar: Really?
  • Reina: Yes. When they received the news, they felt confused and betrayed.
  • Reina: They told me they cried and cried until they could cry no longer.
  • Avatar: I see...
  • Reina: They've refused to talk or see me ever since.
  • Reina: However, I still have a tremendous amount of gratititude for everything they did for me.
  • Reina: Which is why I still use this apron whenever I perform my more domestic duties.
  • Avatar: You've had a hard time of things. I'm so sorry. Thank you for sharing, Reina.
  • Reina: It's nothing. Thank you for listening to my boring tale.
  • Reina: Sharing it with you has helped me a little, I think.
  • Avatar: I'm glad to hear that. And please know, if you ever want to talk, I'm willing to listen.
  • Reina: Thank you, Lord Avatar.

  • Reina: It's nothing worth sharing, milord. In fact, it's a little embarrassing.
  • Avatar: Come now. You can tell me anything, Reina. You know that.
  • Reina: Yes, I suppose I can.
  • Reina: I was just thinking about our discussion the other day.
  • Reina: More specifically, I was wondering whether or not I should stop using my apron.
  • Avatar: Huh?
  • Reina: What I mean is that whenever I do domestic work, I feel like a fraud.
  • Reina: Because the truth is that I'm terrible at it.
  • Reina: I can't cook, I can't clean, and I can only just barely wash my own clothes.
  • Reina: I do my very best, but I'm starting to think I should just leave the work to others.
  • Reina: Much as I'd like to continue, to honor my parents, I should recognize my limits.
  • Reina: Maybe it's time to put this old apron to rest.
  • Avatar: Well, I don't think you need to use that apron anymore.
  • Reina: Huh?
  • Avatar: I visited and spoke with your parents.
  • Reina: You did what?
  • Avatar: I told them everything. How bravely you fight and how hard you work for everyone.
  • Avatar: And how you try to honor them even to this day.
  • Reina: And how did they react?
  • Avatar: They cried. But, they weren't tears of sadness. They were tears of joy.
  • Avatar: They told me they were very proud of you and that they missed you terribly.
  • Reina: ...
  • Avatar: So, if you don't want to, I don't think you need to wear that apron anymore.
  • Avatar: But... I didn't just go there to tell them that.
  • Reina: You didn't? What else did you say?
  • Avatar: I asked them for your hand.
  • Reina: My hand? What do-
  • Avatar: Reina, will you marry me?
  • Reina: What?!
  • Avatar: Er - I mean - It's okay if you don't want to! I just had to ask you...
  • Avatar: I couldn't hide my feelings any longer.
  • Reina: No... don't be silly. I was just taken off guard. Of course I'll marry you.
  • Reina: You've grown to be someone I depend upon every day.
  • Reina: I can't imagine what I'd do without you.
  • Avatar: Then you'll accept this ring?
  • Reina: Yes. I will.
  • Avatar: Whew. I'm so happy you said yes. I love you, Reina.
  • Reina: And I love you, AvatarIt's wonderful to know that you love me, too. It feels like a dream... We must go tell everyone at once.

  • Scarlet: One more whack oughtta do it... HEAVE--
  • Avatar: Scarlet, what's all with this racket?
  • Scarlet: Hey, Avatar! What's it looks like? I'm busting up rocks.
  • Avatar: You're breaking rocks? For fun, or...?
  • Scarlet: Yep! Come in closer and I'll show ya. You see those sparkly bits mixed in with all the dirt and rubble?
  • Avatar: They look like jewels...
  • Scarlet: I'm smashing these rocks apart to get at the good stuff inside.
  • Avatar: You make your own jewelry? Interesting.
  • Scarlet: Hah! You think I turn these little gems into a necklace or what have you? Have you MET me? That's not my style at all, Avatar.
  • Avatar: Oh! I see now. These are the rocks you use to decorate your weapon.
  • Scarlet: Give the man a prize! I'd show you how it works, but... I'm out of the most important material.
  • Avatar: What's that, if I might ask?
  • Scarlet: My magic gunk! It sticks to anything! Too bad. It'd be fun to give you a demonstration.
  • Avatar: "Magic gunk", eh...

B SupportEdit

  • Avatar: Scarlet!
  • Scarlet: Hey, if it ain't Avatar!
  • Avatar: That magic gunk you mentioned... Is this it?
  • Scarlet: It sure is! But how'd you know? And where'd you get some?
  • Avatar: The shop in town had some. I picked it up while I was running errands.
  • Scarlet: I owe ya one. Thanks. How about a live demonstration for your troubles? I've got some rocks all set to go.
  • Avatar: There are so many tiny fragments here...
  • Scarlet: Amazing, aren't they? They shine like tiny stars. OK, first we set the weapon down here. Then we slather on some of that gunk. Once it's fully coated, we stick on a bunch of those shiny rocks. The gal who taught me the technique called it mosaic. It's probably my favorite hobby.
  • Avatar: Is there an outline of some sort near the hilt? It's faint, but I can just barely see...
  • Scarlet: That's my rough sketch.
  • Avatar: You sketch it out beforehand?
  • Scarlet: Yep. It helps me to lay down a design first before you fill it in with the rocks. Makes it look like a painting, huh?
  • Avatar: It's exquisite!
  • Scarlet: You have to be reaaaaal patient... Place each rock slowly... Carefully... And you're done!
  • Avatar: This design... Did you...?!
  • Scarlet: Yep! It's your face!
  • Avatar: That's a stunning likeness. You're very skilled to get it so lifelike. I wouldn't have guessed it of you, Scarlet.
  • Scarlet: Haha, right? Came out pretty fine, if I do say so myself. Though...
  • Avatar: Hmm?
  • Scarlet: It's nice to hear someone else appreciate this, too.
  • Avatar: Why, Scarlet... I didn't think you were the type to blush.
  • Scarlet: Heh, I surprised you once today already. Why not twice?

A SupportEdit

  • Avatar: Did you call for me, Scarlet?
  • Scarlet: Yep! I thought we could take a few minutes to spruce up your weapon today.
  • Avatar: Huh? I... don't quite see the point...
  • Scarlet: What, you don't like my mosaics?
  • Avatar: Oh, no—I mean, yes, I do. I'm just not sure a sparkly weapon is my style... It doesn't really instill fear in one's enemies, does it?
  • Scarlet: Yeah... makes sense. All right, we'll go with my other idea then. Lie down over there.
  • Avatar: Sorry?
  • Scarlet: If I can't pretty up your weapon, I'll sparklize your outfit instead.
  • Avatar: What?!
  • Scarlet: Oh, relax. It's not like I'm fastening this stuff to your bare skin. It's just some clothes. This won't hurt a bit.
  • Avatar: B-but why me...?
  • Scarlet: 'Cause I like ya, I guess. So I wanna see you sparkle!
  • Avatar: That's very kind of you, but--
  • Scarlet: Hurry up and lie down. Don't make me knock you flat.
  • Avatar: All right! All right! Just promise you'll keep it small and tasteful.
  • Scarlet: How small are you thinking?
  • Avatar: Maybe you can keep it to the wrist of my sleeve.
  • Scarlet: Oooh... That'd make it look like a bracelet, kinda. Not a bad idea! Let's get started!
  • Scarlet: How do you like that? I went with a color that I thought would go good with your eyes.
  • Avatar: I thought when I asked you to keep it small that it would be easily hidden... But this is actually very nice.
  • Scarlet: Didn't quite catch that. Care to repeat it?
  • Avatar: N-no, it's fine!
  • Scarlet: Take good care of that, OK? It's got sentimental value.
  • Avatar: That does it. Thank you, Scarlet.
  • Scarlet: There's that smile I love to see. Say, what would you think of a matching design on the other wrist?
  • Avatar: Oh, er, one is enough. But I appreciate the thought.

  • Avatar: I'm asking you if you'll marry me.
  • Scarlet: Seriously?
  • Avatar: Completely. I don't think I can live without you.
  • Scarlet: ...No, wait, go back to the "decorate me with your love" part. How long did you spend coming up with that?
  • Avatar: *sigh* You're so cool about everything that I thought I wouldn't measure up. So I thought long and hard... and tried to come up with something cool sounding...
  • Scarlet: ...HAHAHAHAHA!
  • Avatar: Was it really that bad? I mean it seriously!
  • Scarlet: Haha, sorry. It's just... you had that long, and that's the best you could do?
  • Avatar: Fine, I'm no poet—I admit it.
  • Scarlet: Hey, I didn't say I hated it. I mean, at least you tried! If anybody else tried a line like that on me, they'd probably get a slapping. But you? I'll let it slide.
  • Avatar: Really? Does that mean...
  • Scarlet: Yeah, I think you know what it means. You and me go together like sparkly rocks and sticky gunk.
  • Avatar: I'm tempted to ask which of us is which in the relationship... But I've learned by now to keep my mouth shut and appreciate what I have.

With Xander Edit

C Support Edit

  • Xander: Hya! Hah! Hyaa!!
  • Avatar: *yawn* Xander? You're not still training are you? You should get some rest.
  • Xander: Hm? Ah, Avatar. Thank you for your concern, but I haven't a moment to lose. I must keep Improving my sword technique for the glory of Nohr. As crown prince, it is my responsibility to be as strong as I can for our people.
  • Avatar: Ha ha, even after all these years you're still the same Xander.
  • Xander: Oh? How so?
  • Avatar: Remember when I was little, and I'd get so lonely in the Northern Fortress? You'd always come stay with me until I got sleepy and then go train late into the night.
  • Xander: You knew about that? But how?
  • Avatar: I could see you from my window. After you left, I always watched you train for a bit. It's a little embarrassing, but I'd even try to imitate how you swung your sword. I thought if I matched your movements, maybe one day I could be as strong as you.
  • Xander: I had no idea.
  • Avatar: I was always afraid if I told you about it, you might train elsewhere. Wow, thinking about all that is making me really nostalgic. Such great memories. You know... we've been so busy, we haven't had a chance to train together in a while. Um, if you're not too busy, maybe we could practice sword swinging like old times...
  • Xander: That's the best idea I've heard all day. But it can't be like old times. This time, you and I shall train side by side. No more lonely Northern Fortress for you.
  • Avatar: Ha ha, great! I'll grab my blade!

B Support Edit

  • Xander: Hyaa! Hah!
  • Avatar: At it again, Xander? Don't you ever sleep?
  • Xander: If I train while my enemies are sleeping, I shall always have the advantage.
  • Avatar: Mind if I join in? I had a great time training with you the other day.
  • Xander: I am always happy to have such a capable fighter aid me in my practice. ...
  • Avatar: Is something the matter? I understand if you'd prefer to be alone right now...
  • Xander: Oh no, not at all. I was just thinking about what you said the other day.
  • Avatar: What about it?
  • Xander: Exactly how much sleep did I cause you to lose because of my training? Thinking back, I recall how hard it was to get you up in the morning. Am I to blame?
  • Avatar: Ha ha, don't be silly. It's true I stayed up to watch, but it actually helped me sleep. Some people need to hear the ocean waves to lull themselves to sleep... I need to hear your powerful blade slicing through the night air. It's soothing. I know it sounds ridiculous, but watching you train always made me feel safe.
  • Xander: Truly? Well, I suppose if that's the case I shall forgive us both.
  • Avatar: ... Um, Xander? Is something else on your mind? You look troubled.
  • Xander: Am I such an open book to you?
  • Avatar: You're swinging your sword so fiercely today, with a wild look in your eyes. It's the same look you always had on nights when you and Father would argue.
  • Xander: ...You're too clever for your own good, Avatar. I have much on my mind, but I have no regrets about the decisions I've made. Like you, I am proceeding down the path I believe in, no matter the consequences.
  • Avatar: Oh, so that's it. Sorry, maybe I shouldn't have asked. It's just so nice to hear what's on your mind instead of wondering from afar.
  • Xander: Worry not, little prince. I have enjoyed our discourse as well. But the hour is getting late. Let's finish up so we can rest for tomorrow's endeavors.
  • Avatar: OK. This time I'm going to beat you!

A Support Edit

  • Xander: Ah, Avatar. I've been waiting for you I knew you'd turn up eventually.
  • Avatar: Ugh, am I that predictable? Oh well. Shall we begin?
  • Xander: Certainly. ... Avatar... Did you mean it when you said you prefer to hear what's on my mind?
  • Avatar: I meant it with all my heart.
  • Xander: I see... Well, I suppose I owe you the courtesy of explaining a thing or two. You were right about me taking out my anger at Father during my training. Sometimes being crown prince means following the king's orders no matter what. But there were times when I felt his commands crossed a line. Sometimes it didn't feel like he was trying to benefit the kingdom at all, just himself. Having to do things I didn't believe in weighed heavily on my heart. Now I'm wise enough and brave enough to stand up to Father. But back then... Those were the nights you spoke of, when I swung my blade like a wild beast.
  • Avatar: Xander...
  • Xander: I never thought I'd tell you that. I always tried to shield you from such things. A sword is a strange and beautiful thing... Sometimes just one swing of your blade can communicate more than a lifetime of words. Thank you for listening, Avatar. Both to my blade back then and my words now.
  • Avatar: No need to thank me. I didn't do anything but listen. And pry.
  • Xander: You did more than you know. It's thanks to you...that I don't feel alone anymore.
  • Avatar: Xander... It means the world to me to hear you say that. You saved me from my own loneliness when I was a child, locked away from the world... I'm so happy to finally repay the favor. It was always my dearest wish to do so. If you ever feel like talking, about anything, I'm always here for you.
  • Xander: I don't wish for you to lose sleep over my troubles...
  • Avatar: I've been losing sleep over you for years now, ha ha. It's my favorite tradition.
  • Xander: As you wish, Avatar. From now on I promise to let you in.

  • Camilla: That's right—it's time for you to rest your precious little head in my lap. Would you like a lullaby as well? I know how hard it is to fall asleep sometimes.
  • Avatar: Camilla, it's been YEARS since I've done that.
  • Camilla: Are you sure? It seems like yesterday to me. I could just sit and stare at your cute little sleeping face for hours. C'mon! I promise I won't kiss your cheeks while you're sleeping. Oh, who am I kidding? I can't promise that!
  • Avatar: Camilla... I'm not a child anymore.

  • Avatar: Do you mean that? My message finally got through?
  • Camilla: Certainly. Going forward, I will treat you as the adult brother you have become. Now then, I was thinking we deserve a small break from all this action. Shall we pop off to the local hot springs for a spell? Do a bit of a "spa fortnight," as I like to call it?
  • Avatar: What?!
  • Camilla: What do you mean, "what"? It's just a little soaking and relaxing, dear. Don't we deserve a little extra time to bond?
  • Avatar: Of course, but... How do you think it would look to the others? I can't let my friends fight and die while I'm off soaking in a tub!
  • Camilla: And basking in the rejuvenative powers of daily facial peels! One mustn't forget the facial peels.
  • Avatar: I'm sorry, Camilla, but I can't get away for something like that right now.
  • Camilla: Oh, I suppose not. It's just that I feel terrible about your wretched past. Being locked away for so long...unable to run wild with the other boys. Let alone experience life's simplest pleasures! Like splashing in the ocean...or playing knights and dragons with your friends. Father didn't allow that sort of thing, did he.
  • Avatar: No.
  • Camilla: Don't you see how hard it was on me? Not to be able to do anything for my poor little brother?
  • Avatar: Camilla, please don't cry.

  • Camilla: Time to think?
  • Avatar: Yes. Sometimes you come on so strong, and my first reaction is to run and hide. But...I realized that that's pretty childish.
  • Camilla: Oh?
  • Avatar: I mean, here I am trying to get you to treat me as an adult... But I'm acting like a spoiled brat. I do need to work harder at empathizing with others. I know that your intentions are pure. And I appreciate how much you care for me. So...I'd like to spend more time with you. I promise I won't run away again.
  • Camilla: Awwww... *sob*
  • Avatar: Camilla?
  • Camilla: My little Avatar is growing up right before my eyes. So, where should we go first? There's a whole world out there to explore!
  • Avatar: Well, I thought you might have some ideas about that.
  • Camilla: Oh, I most certainly do! Look at this map.
  • Avatar: Did...did you just pull that out of your bra?
  • Camilla: Where else would I keep it? Now, let's see... Ah, yes. See all these circles?
  • Avatar: Yes... Is this a map of all of Nohr?
  • Camilla: Indeed. Oh, I've been planning this for ages! Now, each circle represents a place I've dreamed of visiting with you.
  • Avatar: I don't know what to say...
  • Camilla: First on the list is this field of flowers here. It's absolutely sublime—a living work of art. This circle is a cavern filled with sparkling crystals and mysterious rock formations. And, last but not least, a secluded hot spring not far from our current location...
  • Avatar: Really?
  • Camilla: Yes, I want more than anything to go together.
  • Avatar: Camilla, you meant for us to visit this hot spring from the very beginning, didn't you?
  • Camilla: Don't be ridiculous. It just so happens that it's a natural wonder.
  • Avatar: And it has nothing to do with the—what did you call it? Facial peel?
  • Camilla: Oh, well as long as we're there, we might as well TRY one...or two...
  • Avatar: Well...let me think about it. OK?
  • Camilla: Oh, certainly! I can wait. I mean, I've already been waiting for years. Take your time, brother. This will be like the blink of an eye.

  • Avatar: What?! How do you think people's eyelashes would respond to a brother marrying his sister?
  • Camilla: Oh, please. We're not blood related. And everyone knows that.
  • Avatar: But...we've lived as brother and sister for so long. And everyone knows THAT, too.
  • Camilla: You know, I've always been a bit sad that we're not actually related. But if we got married, we would be!
  • Avatar: Camilla, are you even listening to yourself?
  • Camilla: So, is that a no?
  • Avatar: I...I think it has to be a no, right? Even though there is a part of me that wants to say yes...
  • Camilla: There is? Let's build on that! Look, what's the hang-up? You don't find me attractive?
  • Avatar: Gods...I had hoped to avoid ever having this conversation...
  • Camilla: So that's it, then. You find me hideous.
  • Avatar: Camilla, no! It's just the opposite, I'm afraid. Growing up with a stunningly attractive sister...who's not ACTUALLY my sister... It was confusing, to say the least. And now that we're adults of no blood relation...
  • Camilla: Oh, Avatar. I never knew you felt that way!
  • Avatar: Exactly.
  • Camilla: But don't you see? There's no reason to hide our love any longer. I'll say it again: we are not related. There's no taboo preventing us from marrying. We're just like...childhood sweethearts who have finally come of age.
  • Avatar: ... ... All right.
  • Camilla: What?!
  • Avatar: Let's do it, Camilla. Let's ignore the dissenters and get married.
  • Camilla: Are you sure, Avatar? I don't want to feel as though I've pushed you into this...
  • Avatar: No. I'm certain. Thanks to you, I won't have to live with regret any longer. You've shown me that being an adult means being true to yourself. I love that about you...and I love you.
  • Camilla: I love you too, Avatar. Let's stay together forever.
  • Avatar: Once the war is over, we can travel wherever we like. Even to the hot spring you've been wanting to visit for so long.
  • Camilla: Wait, we still don't get to go right now?
  • Camilla: We're a real family now. And I love my family more than anything.

With Leo Edit

C Support Edit

  • 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!

B Support Edit

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Elise: Waaah! Avatar! I-I'm not doing anything! Really. Not a thing. Or I mean, I was just here to pick flowers. YEAH! A pretty girl picking pretty flowers...
  • Avatar: Oh, I see. Are you sure about that?
  • Elise: But of course! I wanted to make you a lovely bouquet. I'M JUST TOO SWEET!
  • Avatar: OK then. It just seemed an awful lot like you were practicing your punches...
  • Elise: ... FINE! You caught me. You're just too clever for my devious deceptions. The truth is, lately I've been feeling like kind of a burden to everyone... I was hoping if I trained secretly I could become as strong as you are one day!
  • Avatar: Elise, please don't say that. I promise, no one thinks of you as a burden.
  • Elise: You're sweet to say that, Avatar. I love that you're always looking out for me. But that's exactly why I need to train! Thatway I can look out for myself instead!
  • Avatar: This clearly means a whole lot to you.
  • Elise: Oh, it means everything to me! Everything! See, watch this...KAPOW! My killer left hook. KABOOM! My right fist of fury! Kapow! Kaboom! HYAAA!
  • Avatar: Ah, wow. I'm impressed by your...exuberance. Well then, if it means that much to you, I'd be happy to help you out. After all, training is twice as effective with two minds at work.
  • Elise: You mean it, Avatar?! Thank you, thank you, thank you! You're the best! I love you THE MOST!!
  • Avatar: Hahaha, you're very welcome. Now then, let's start with some cardio. Ready...GO!

  • Avatar: Hello, Elise. Shall we start our training for today?
  • Elise: Hrm... *sigh*
  • Avatar: Elise, are you feeling all right?
  • Elise: Not really. It's just... I've been training so hard, but I still feel like a big ol' burden.
  • Avatar: Nonsense. You've already improved quite a bit. Be patient. These things take time.
  • Elise: Do you mean it? You really think I've improved a lot?
  • Avatar: Absolutely. But the only way you'll keep getting better is to work hard every day.
  • Elise: You're right! No more moping around! I'm gonna do my best from here on out!
  • Avatar: That's the spirit!
  • Elise: So what are we working on today? Kicks? Punches? Intimidating faces?!
  • Avatar: Today we'll be working on your upper-body strength. Time for some push-ups! Go on, drop and give me twenty!
  • Elise: T-t-twenty push-ups? Like, in a row?! Is that even possible? And besides, aren't push-ups for big, burly, muscular types? Not cute little girls?
  • Avatar: That's just silly. Push-ups are for everyone. Everyone serious about training, anyway.
  • Elise: I see... Well, if you say so, Avatar. Here goes nothing... One... Two... Three... F-four...
  • Avatar: You're doing great. Keep it up!
  • Elise: Fiiiiive... Ugh...
  • Avatar: What's the matter? You're not quitting already, are you? If you want to get stronger, you can't give up when things get tough.
  • Elise: But...my arms are wobbly... and I'm getting all SWEATY.
  • Avatar: No pain, no gain. When you can't take any more, remember why you're training. You want to be a stronger version of yourself, right? This is how you get there. Think you can handle it?
  • Elise: I...I CAN! I want to be better! Stronger! SWEATIER!!
  • Avatar: That's the Elise I know! Now let's try that again. This time, drop and give me ten!

  • Elise: ... I-I think I've gotten a tiny bit stronger, thanks to you. But... But... *sob* But when I encounter an enemy on the battlefield all alone, I still get so s-scared! If I keep being such a weak baby, I'll never stop being a burden to everyone!
  • Avatar: Elise...
  • Elise: I want to help protect everyone... I wanna protect you and Xander... and Leo... and C-C-Camilla... and everyone else too... I just want everyone to be safe and happy and to *sniff* live peacefully. But for that to happen, we've just got to win this stupid war! I can't keep holding us back by being the weak link...
  • Avatar: Elise... You sweet, silly girl. Dry those tears. I understand how you feel, but I promise things aren't so bleak.
  • Elise: Avatar...
  • Avatar: War isn't just about fighting. To truly win, you must believe in what you're fighting for. You have such a pure desire for peace, and that's invaluable in times like these. So no, Elise, you're definitely not a burden. You're a ray of light in the dark. Now show me that smile, and please, never stop trying to improve. You're doing great.
  • Elise: Avatar... Th-thank you, Avatar! You always know just what to say. I love you so much!

  • Avatar: ...
  • Elise: HEEHEE, I knew it! Now spill the beans! Who are you going to give these to? These particular flowers symbolize eternal love, so it better be someone special.
  • Avatar: Yes, Elise. I'm well aware of the special significance these flowers hold. So, ehem...stay right there, OK? And...hold out your hands.
  • Elise: What, why? I don't understand...
  • Avatar: These flowers... These special flowers... I was gathering them for you.
  • Elise: But, Avatar... Giving these flowers to someone means you l-l-love them! Like, LOVE love them!
  • Avatar: Yes, I know. That's exactly why I wanted to give them to you. Elise, I know we've been like siblings for a long time now...but we're not siblings. I gave you those flowers because I care for you, very deeply. I want to take care of you.
  • Elise: ... D-does this mean... Are you asking me...?
  • Avatar: Darling Elise... Will you marry me? I want to spend the rest of my life keeping you safe and making you smile.
  • Elise: Oh, Avatar... I'm so happy! But... *sniff* Do you really think I'll make a good wife? Are you sure about this? Of all the people in the world, you're the last person I want to be a burden to...
  • Avatar: Not this again! Elise, you're brilliant and perfect just as you are. Just keep acting as you normally would. You have nothing to worry about.
  • Elise: Maybe you're right! Maybe I don't need to change at all. After all, I already keep you in my heart when I'm playing or fighting... And also when I'm laughing or crying... Now I can keep you in my arms as well!
  • Avatar: That sounds perfect.
  • Elise: Heehee, I like the sound of this. Oh! But what should I call you now?! Just plain ol' Avatar doesn't sound nearly special enough for my hubby!

  • Avatar: !!
  • Elise: Wh-what's wrong? Did I say it weird?
  • Avatar: No, not at all! It's far from weird. Actually, it's wonderful.
  • Elise: Heehee, I'm so glad to hear you say that! I love you so much...Honey!

  • Laslow: Perhaps I was mistaken. My apologies, milord. Anyways! Since we're both here, perhaps milord would like to join me for a bite?
  • Avatar: Um, sure. I guess I have time.
  • Laslow: You do?! That's wonderful news! With you there, the fair lasses in town are far less likely to flee from my advances!
  • Avatar: On second thought, I think I'm busy. I have to do... not that.

Just think, tomorrow I could be spirited away—or worse! What if you never have an opportunity to see me again? Would you not give anything to then apologize for how you treated me?

  • Avatar: Must you do this every time? We see each other every day.
  • Laslow: Hm. I suppose you've a point. But I prefer to treat each meeting as if it were special. Because it is! We will never meet precisely the same way at the same time again. I think we should treasure every moment of our lives as much as most do gems.
  • Avatar: I see. Quite the romantic, aren't you?
  • Laslow: But of course! And in this spirit of gratitude, I have acquired a gift for you.
  • Avatar: Oh. What is it?
  • Laslow: It's a special salve with unique restorative powers.
  • Avatar: Really? Wow! Thank you so much! It looks expensive. Are you sure I can have it?
  • Laslow: Of course! I only ask you remember this fateful crossing whenever you use it.
  • Avatar I will. You know, there really is something beautiful about your point of view. Maybe I should try harder to treasure every moment.
  • Laslow: I'm delighted to hear you're coming around! After all, no one knows where their friends may disappear to next. Life is more fragile than most of us ever imagine... One moment, a friend is standing beside you, smiling. And the next, they're gone. And you realize that you will never see them again.
  • Avatar: Laslow?
  • Laslow: Hm? Oh! Haha. Silly me. My apologies, milord. All this is just to say you never know—you know? It's as true for me as for anyone else. I won't always be around, after all.
  • Avatar: Huh? Are you planning on going somewhere?
  • Laslow: Maybe. Maybe not. For the moment, however, I am thinking of visiting some of the fine shops in town. Would you care to join me, Lord Avatar?
  • Avatar: I suppose I have— Oh. I see what you're doing. You just want me to help you hit on women, don't you? I think I'll pass. Thanks.
  • Laslow: You wound me, milord. I assure you, I had only the most innocent intentions! But, in all seriousness, we should always remember that we are soldiers. At war. There's no guarantee that we will meet again with smiles on our faces.

  • Laslow: Dohoho! Rejected again! Ah, well, another day anoth—Er, wait. You mean you will?!
  • Avatar: Yes. We never know when next we'll meet, do we? And perhaps next time you won't offer me an invitation.
  • Laslow: I suppose that's technically possible...
  • Avatar: I've spent a lot of time thinking about what you said before. Every meeting is a once-in-a-lifetime encounter, right? And now that I've come to see things this way, it would be silly of me to reject you.
  • Laslow: Thank you, Lord Avatar.
  • Avatar: But it does make me a little more scared to say good-bye to people than I used to be. When every good-bye could be your last, it becomes much harder to let go. I never thought about it much before, but now it's always on my mind.
  • Laslow: Milord, if I may be frank, I feel that parting is a deeply sorrowful thing. If it were up to me, I'd never have to say farewell to anyone. I've had to do that far too much in my life... But it is not up to me. It's a part of life. And life cares little for our feelings. So it is, I suppose, as important to learn to let go as it is to cherish every moment.
  • Avatar: I agree.
  • Laslow And besides! The sorrow of parting makes reunion all the sweeter, does it not? And saying good-bye to one person usually means saying hello to another. If I had not said good-bye to many people I loved, I'd never have met you, for example. I am truly grateful I was able to make your acquaintance, Lord Avatar.
  • Avatar: I'm glad I was able to meet you as well, Laslow. I'm sure all of the others feel the same.
  • Laslow: Thank you. Now! Enough of this dreary philosophizing. Shall we treat ourselves to a meal now?

  • Avatar: Whew... Peri... you know what I'd really like? If I could eat your amazing food every day.
  • Peri: You're serious? Lord Avatar, are you asking me to...?
  • Avatar: Yes. That's why I was looking for you, in fact.
  • Peri: Oh, I'm sorry, but... I can't be your personal chef!
  • Avatar: My what? N-no, that's not what I meant. What I wanted to ask was, um... your hand in marriage.
  • Peri: M-marriage? To Lord Avatar? Someone, pinch me...
  • Avatar: It's not a joke... or a dream. I genuinely feel that way about you.
  • Peri: I...I... Uh... urghh... *sniff* Waaaaaaaaah!
  • Avatar: Wh-why are you crying? Are you that opposed to the idea?
  • Peri: No, no! Crying isn't always for sad times. Sometimes I cry when I'm happy! And right now, I'm very, very happy. I love you too, Lord Avatar!
  • Avatar: Then you'll accept my proposal?
  • Peri: Yes...!
  • Avatar: Wonderful! I'll make sure our home is up to your aristocratic standards. I want you to live in the style you're accustomed to, with servants. I'l make sure to hire hardy folk, who won't die when you attack them.
  • Peri: This is perfect! I'm so excited! Thank you so much, Lord Avatar! I promise to be a good wife!
  • Peri: I know nothing will ever come between us...
  • Peri: because I'll eviscerate anyone who tries.

  • Selena: Grr! Where did it go? Why am I the most cursed person in the entire world? Ughhh!
  • Avatar: Selena? I heard shouting... Is everything OK?
  • Selena: Um, obviously not! I can't find my yukata!
  • Avatar: Oh no! Wait, what's a yukata?
  • Selena: You don't even know what a yukata is? Well, for your information, it's a super- cute dress-type thing from Hoshido.
  • Avatar: Oh. But aren't you from Nohr?
  • Selena: What does that have to do with it? And who said I was from Nohr?
  • Avatar: Sorry, I'm confused—
  • Selena: Why does it matter where I'm from? I can wear whatever I want.
  • Avatar: No argument here. If the shoe fits...
  • Selena: I thought I told you it was a dress, not a shoe. And OF COURSE it fits—I looked fabulous! But now I CAN'T FIND IT.
  • Avatar: No need to shout. I'm sure it's around here somewhere...
  • Selena: Don't you know anything? I was fishing for a compliment there. Jeez!
  • Avatar: I'm sorry?
  • Selena: Whatever. Are you going to help me find my yukata or not?
  • Avatar: Well, it doesn't sound like I have a choice.
  • Selena: Not if you want to remain my third-best friend, mister. Now, c'mon, let's find that thing!
  • Avatar: OK, sounds good. Wait, THIRD best? Who are numbers one and—?
  • Selena: Oh, don't you worry your pretty little head off about them.

  • Selena: Hey, Avatar! Didja find my yukata yet?
  • Avatar: Sorry, I haven't. But, to be honest, after we spent so much time looking the other day... I sort of assumed it was gone forever. So I haven't been looking very hard.
  • Selena: Ugh! You give up too easily.
  • Avatar: Well, I did look all around the castle, and I asked a few people about it.
  • Selena: Well, you feel that you tried your best. I guess that's good enough for some people.
  • Avatar: *sigh*
  • Selena: You're sighing? It's like you don't even WANT to find my yukata.
  • Avatar: Selena, I would truly like to help you find it, if only for my own personal relief. Maybe you could tell me a bit more about the garment...
  • Selena: All right... It's burgundy with a tiny cherry blossom pattern. It's the same color my mother used to wear a lot. But it probably looked better on her, of course...
  • Avatar: Why would you say that?
  • Selena: Well, she was perfect and she had perfect taste. Kinda hard to live up to that. Not that I don't come pretty darn close!
  • Avatar: She "was" perfect? Did she pass away?
  • Selena: Yeah, but whatever. I'm over it. Anyway, we're talking about my yukata here. You got the details memorized?
  • Avatar: Er, yes. Burgundy with cherry blossoms. Oh, one other thing. What size was it?
  • Selena: What SIZE?
  • Avatar: Er, yes?
  • Selena: That's kind of personal, don't you think? What if I asked you what color of underwear you were wearing, huh?
  • Avatar: Um...
  • Selena: Oh, great. Now you're probably thinking about MY underwear. You're so nosy, you know that?
  • Avatar: Selena, please listen! I wasn't thinking anything like that! I just want to help you find your yukata. I thought it might be helpful to know the size.
  • Selena: All right, fine. It's a regular size yukata. Not large, not small. REGULAR. Got it?
  • Avatar: Regular-sized. Got it.
  • Selena: Now, are you done interrogating me? Will you hurry up and start searching?
  • Avatar: Yes, I will be glad to take my leave of you at this point.
  • Selena: Wait, what do you mean by THAT?

  • Selena: *sigh* Don't bother answering. I can tell by the look on your face. Whatever. It doesn't matter anymore.
  • Avatar: What do you mean?
  • Selena: I mean...we've both looked all over for the darn thing, and it's just gone. I'm sorry I wasted your time. I know you've got a lot of important stuff going on.
  • Avatar: Selena...
  • Selena: Just so we're clear, I'm not grateful.
  • Avatar: Well, I'm glad you could clear that up.
  • Selena: I guess I'll just have to make a new yukata. It'll probably be challenging, but with my level of talent, I'm sure it will turn out.
  • Avatar: I think that's a good idea, Selena. Camilla is always saying how talented you are.
  • Selena: She...she is? I mean... Of course she is. By the way, what's your size?
  • Avatar: My size? You got so upset when I asked about your size the other day.
  • Selena: Ughhh. This is for a gift so it's TOTALLY DIFFERENT, duh.
  • Avatar: Fair enough. I was just teasing! But you don't need to get me a gift.
  • Selena: Well don't worry. It's not like it's a good gift or anything. I just thought that if I had some leftover scraps of material... Maybe, if I had time, I could sew them together into a yukata for you. Whatever! I probably won't have enough material or I'll forget or something.
  • Avatar: I see. Well, it's the thought that counts.
  • Selena: Great. So now we just need to go find some cute fabric. Ready to go?
  • Avatar: Um...
  • Selena: What do you mean, "um"? Are you ready or not? Most people would BEG for a chance to go shopping with me.
  • Avatar: I'm sure I'll be begging for something by the end of the trip...
  • Selena: Ha, ha. C'mon, let's go! This is going to be fun. Hurry up!

  • Selena: Fine, fine. But what's going on? I was in the middle of something.
  • Avatar: Oh, I'm sorry to have interrupted you. What were you doing?
  • Selena: If you must know, I was packing. Remember how we couldn't find any decent fabric the other day? Well, I've got a lead on some premium silk, but I have to go pick it up. It's...a bit of a hike from here.
  • Avatar: Well, I'm glad I caught you. Because there's no need for you to go. Here, take this.
  • Selena: This fabric... It's the same as my missing yukata!
  • Avatar: Indeed! I found a place that was willing to make a custom order for you.
  • Selena: Oh, gods... I don't deserve this. I've been so awful to you. To everyone...
  • Avatar: No! Don't say that. I mean, sure, you've been prickly, but that's just who you are. Y'know, it's funny. I've actually grown somewhat fond of being belittled—
  • Selena: Then marry me.
  • Avatar: What?!
  • Selena: You heard me. Grow up and marry me, Avatar! Or are you a scared little baby? Waaah! Waaah!
  • Avatar: I...no. Wait. What?!
  • Selena: Look. I've got important things to do. I can't just sit around waiting for a proposal. So are you gonna marry me or what? Most people would kill for this opportunity, just so you know.
  • Avatar: Against all better judgment...I will. I will marry you, Selena!
  • Selena: Well, good! And you better make me the happiest woman in the world while you're at it!

  • Beruka: ...
  • Avatar: ...Beruka?
  • Beruka: It is obvious. I'm repairing my weapon.
  • Avatar: Oh, right. I suppose that is obvious. You know, I admire the care with which you treat your weapons. Which reminds me— the other day, when I saw you on the battlefield—
  • Beruka: State your business. Quickly.
  • Avatar: Huh? I don't really have any "buisiness." I just thought it would be nice to chat.
  • Beruka: Why?
  • Avatar: Do I need a reason?
  • Beruka: If you do not have business, do not speak to me.
  • Avatar: Beruka... Very well. I'm sorry for bothering you.
  • Beruka: Thank you. I do not see why people enjoy such meaningless chatter. Do you?
  • Avatar: Well... I guess I'd say it's because people want to get to know one another. Even now, I feel like I've gotten to know you just a little bit better.
  • Beruka: Why do you feel the need to get to know me?
  • Avatar: Because I'd like for us to be friends.
  • Beruka: Why?
  • Avatar: I... ah... I don't know. It sounds nice?
  • Beruka: You are strange. May I resume my task now?
  • Avatar: S-sure. Sorry to bother you. Maybe we can talk about this some other time...

B Support Edit

  • Avatar: Working on your weapon again, Beruka?
  • Beruka: You again. I suppose this is good timing. I need to discuss something with you.
  • Avatar: Really? You want to talk with me? About what?
  • Beruka: Our conversation the other day confirmed my hatred of conversations. Yet you seemed to think it was a good thing, as it helped you "get to know" me. What benefit do you think there is to be had in getting to know one another?
  • Avatar: As I said before, it's because I would like for us to be friends.
  • Beruka: Friends? Hmph. These are things people have said about me: "Beruka is a monster. She does not feel. She is barely human." "Beruka is a peerless assassin. And there is a reason for that." "She'd murder her own mother if given the order." "She's a puppet. A sad, murderous little tool with no will of her own."
  • Avatar: Beruka...
  • Beruka: I do not tell you these things to defend myself against them. I am telling you because they are accurate descriptions. Do you understand now what kind of person I am?
  • Avatar: ...
  • Beruka: I had a mentor who taught me how to kill. I returned that generosity with violence. My mentor died by my hand. I did not hesitate for even a moment.
  • Avatar: What? Why would you do such a thing?
  • Beruka: Why? What a foolish question. I was ordered to. Nothing more, nothing less.

  • Beruka: So? What is it this time?
  • Avatar: Hm. Let's see... How about we talk about your family?
  • Beruka: My family? I don't remember them.
  • Avatar: Why not?
  • Beruka: I was abandoned before I was old enough to retain any memories. I don't even know who they were.
  • Avatar: I'm sorry. It sounds like I hit on a sensitive subject.
  • Beruka: Don't worry about it. It is what it is. I cannot blame them. They were neither good nor bad. Few in the slums even believed in such concepts. A man who was kind enough to give me bread was also a murderer. Was he "good"? Was he "evil"? Neither. He fed me. He killed. That is all. In the same way, my parents left me. In the same way, I kill. That is all.
  • Avatar: I see...
  • Beruka: May we be done now? This was pointless. Continuing it would only be more pointless.
  • Avatar: I disagree. You're an important ally, and I am grateful I've gotten to learn more about you.
  • Beruka: Ally? You think me an ally?
  • Avatar: Yes. Why wouldn't I?
  • Beruka: I told you I killed my mentor, correct? If given the order, I might kill you as quickly.
  • Avatar: Ha. Bring it on! I'll take you on with all I've got.
  • Beruka: You think you could defeat me?
  • Avatar: I don't know. But at the very least, I'd certainly make you work for it.

  • Avatar: I'll cut straight to the chase. I want to build a family with you.
  • Beruka: Please repeat your order. I do not understand.

  • Beruka: I...
  • Avatar: Yes?
  • Beruka: I understand the words you are saying, but I think you must be mistaken. Are you well, milord?
  • Avatar: Yes. And I'm not mistaken. You're the one I want to spend my life with.
  • Beruka: I see. Then I am sorry. I'm not interested in marriage.
  • Avatar: You aren't? Why not?
  • Beruka: I cannot say I even truly understand what a family is. I was not raised in one. I cannot make something I don't understand.
  • Avatar: I wouldn't worry about that. I mean, I don't really know either.
  • Beruka: What do you mean?
  • Avatar: I've always had people who loved me and called me family, it's true. But I don't know what a normal family is like. Ones where the parents and children all live in the same place. Where they're all close and loving, and they see each other every day... That's why I want to have one. I think it would be a beautiful adventure for us both. So, will you reconsider?
  • Beruka: Is that—
  • Avatar: A wedding ring. Yes. I had it made especially for you.
  • Beruka: Hm.
  • Avatar: Beruka? What's wrong?
  • Beruka: I...don't know what to do.
  • Avatar: You can do whatever you want. I only ask you don't reject it out of fear that you won't be able to handle it. I will be by your side every step of the way. We'll help each other through it.
  • Beruka: I suppose I will hold on to it for now, then.
  • Avatar: Thank you.
  • Beruka: I also have one request.
  • Avatar: Anything.
  • Beruka: Up until now, we've mostly talked about me. But I want to learn more about you. I want you to tell me everything about yourself.
  • Avatar: I would be happy to. We have a great deal of talking to do, I think. But now we also have all the time in the world to do it.

  • Odin: Oh, I didn't see you there, Lord Avatar.
  • Avatar: Why are you standing out here all by yourself?
  • Odin: Isn't it obvious? You are witness to a quiet intermission in the play that is my life.
  • Avatar: Intermission? What are you talking about?
  • Odin: Well to put it quite simply, I'm enjoying a nice moment of tranquility.
  • Avatar: Ah, now I understand. Why didn't you just say that to begin with? And why are you holding that strange pose? It looks exhausting.
  • Odin: Oh this? It's a unique creation that I concocted myself. This stance grants me incredible power.
  • Avatar: Huh, I've never seen anyone stick out their hand like that. It's very... unique.
  • Odin: Hahaha!
  • Avatar: What's so funny?
  • Odin: Well it's clear that the moment has come to unveil the origin of this divine creation... That being said, the explanation will take some time...
  • Avatar: Umm, I don't think I need to hear all that. You'll have to excuse me, Odin.

  • Odin: What do you mean? Hey, wait a second! Don't leave!

B Support Edit

  • Odin: Finally! I've been searching high and low for you!
  • Avatar: Why were you looking for me, Odin?
  • Odin: Obviously, I must explain the origin of this unique pose in minute detail.
  • Avatar: I told you before, I really don't need all that information. I was just curious about the weird thing that you were doing.
  • Odin: This unique pose grants me extraordinary power whenever I use my dark magic. Only a chose one such as myself can tap into the might bequeathed by this creation. I'm sure that you're wondering who chose me. Sadly, I cannot tell you. It is a profound secret that must stay locked away in the pit of my heart.
  • Avatar: O-OK... I guess that makes sense...
  • Odin: Allow me to propose an idea. I believe that you should come up with a special name for this fascinating pose. With the perfect title, this creation will make me even more powerful!
  • Avatar: Oh really? I'm surprised that you haven't named it already.
  • Odin: Inspiration has yet to strike. That's why I require your assistance. I feel that the time is right to transfer the naming rights to you. On a cosmic level, I know that it was meant to be.
  • Avatar: What do you mean exactly? I'm a little bit confused...
  • Odin: Just what I said! You must rename my holy creation! Help me unleash the true power within! Just think for a moment, and then whisper the name into my ear. It's obvious that people will tell tall tales about this moment for years to come. Probably until time itself comes to a halt.
  • Avatar: So you want me to rename it right now? On the spot like this? But I haven't had any time to actually think up anything good yet.
  • Odin: That's fine! It should be spontaneous. Just embrace the sheer joy of creation! Set yourself free, and shout whatever springs immediately to mind!
  • Avatar: All right... Hmm, let's see. Umm...
  • Odin: This is such a thrill! I'm getting goose bumps already!
  • Avatar: Hmm...
  • Odin: Still thinking, eh?
  • Avatar: Listen, I'm sorry. Nothing interesting is really coming to mind. Can I have a bit of time to think it over?
  • Odin: Wh-what?! You can't possibly be serious. How could you possibly cast off the honor of naming this beautiful pose?
  • Avatar: I never said that I wouldn't do it. Just give me some time!
  • Odin: I'm in shock. It's horribly cruel of you to get my expectations up. How could you?
  • Avatar: Calm down, Odin! You're getting all upset for no reason.
  • Odin: I can't help it! I'm very serious. Please, just think up a name already. Wait, I have an idea. Maybe something will come to you if I offer up some ideas first. What do you think?
  • Avatar: Well, if it really means that much to you... Fine, I'll do it.

  • Odin: Pardon me, Avatar. Can we speak for a moment?
  • Avatar: *sigh* You found me...
  • Odin: Well of course I did! I've been thinking a great deal about our recent conversation... To be perfectly honest, no brilliant ideas leapt forward in my mind. This enchanted pose will obviously be talked about for decades to come. But the sheer weight of that knowledge is impeding my creative flow.
  • Avatar: Well that's too bad. I'm sure you'll figure something out eventually.
  • Odin: Now wait just a minute! Why are you acting so cold toward me? Can't we talk for a bit? Please?
  • Avatar: Hmph...
  • Odin: We must engage with every single idea, no matter how small. Together we can conceive infinite possible names and debate them freely! That is precisely the sort of conversation I desire.
  • Avatar: Sorry, but I um...have to go take care of something. Bye, Odin.
  • Odin: Quit making all of these cowardly excuses. This won't take up much time. Please, I'll even do my best not to wear you out. I'll do whatever it takes!
  • Avatar: OK, fine. I can't turn you down if you're really this passionate. But please, let's try to make this brief.
  • Odin: I knew that you'd never let me down! Thank you, Lord Avatar! This means the world to me. When we were speaking before, I felt tremendous joy. Your obvious enthusiasm is a great source of delight and inspiration. That's precisely why you must be the one who decides upon the final name. So what kind of moniker do you think would be most appropriate? Having a general idea would almost certainly make this process easier.
  • Avatar: You just need a basic idea? Hmm... Well it should probably be pretty timeless, don't you think? Something impressive, just like you.
  • Odin: Wait, wait... You think I'm impressive?
  • Avatar: Yes, I do. You can be a little tough to understand sometimes... But whenever we fight together, you're so calm and assured. I've always admired that.
  • Odin: R-really?! You mean it? I don't know what to say... I'm beyond thrilled to receive such high praise from you. It's as though a lightning bolt of emotion has just struck my heart. Yes, I believe you've touched my very soul. With all these feelings percolating within me, I know just what to do! I have it! The all-important name has finally come to me! It is a glorious revelation. Brace yourself, Lord Avatar! The name of this smoldering pose is... Shadow Glitter!
  • Avatar: Umm, you just named it yourself, Odin.
  • Odin: Ahh! You're right. I got completely carried away. I'm terribly sorry. I'd promised that we would work out a title together!
  • Avatar: Oh, it's fine. I'm just happy that I could lend you a helping hand. In a way, we did figure it out together. I think Shadow Glitter is a perfect name. it suits you quite well.
  • Odin: Th-thank you! Just hearing you say that makes me unspeakably pleased. I hope you can still think of me as a reliable friend and companion. I didn't mean to get caught up in my moment of divine inspiration.
  • Avatar: Please, don't worry about it, Odin. I'm just glad that we don't have to talk about it anymore!

  • Avatar: No, no... I trust you.
  • Niles: You do? How foolish! After all, I don't yet trust YOU.
  • Avatar: What?! Why not?
  • Niles: Because we barely know each other, milord. Trust is often borne out of a violent confrontation or traumatic experience. I suppose you must have had some kind of blessed childhood, free from worry.
  • Avatar: I don't remember anything of my childhood.
  • Niles: My apologies. Clearly a sore subject. Of all people, I should know better than to probe the secrets of a troubled history.

  • Niles: I see. You know, I do believe you are genuinely curious.
  • Avatar: I am. So, would you be willing to share a little bit of your past with me?
  • Niles: Very well. But you should know up front that it's not all lollipops and puppy dogs. Since I was a child, I've had to do a lot of unsavory things just to survive. Steal, beg, kill—just another Tuesday for li'l Niles, sadly.

  • Avatar: I'm so sorry. You're putting on a brave face, but I can't imagine...
  • Niles: No. If anything, I should apologize to you. You asked so sweetly, and here I am teasing you again. My past was troubled, and I certainly suffered a great deal. But it is all in the past, and I don't mind sharing. At least, I don't mind sharing with someone whose motives are pure. As I believe yours are.

  • Niles: Oh, let's see... How about low-friction tactical grappling and strategy?
  • Avatar: Uh...I've never heard of that. What's involved?
  • Niles: Oh, it's a valuable training technique. First, we simulate the conditions of low friction by applying oil to our bodies. Then we practice various situational grappling techniques.
  • Avatar: Niles, that just sounds like oil wrestling. I don't think I'm ready for that.
  • Niles: Very well! Then I suppose we'll just have to have a VERY stimulating chat.

  • Avatar: I...I couldn't tell you.

  • Avatar: Heh. Niles, there's nothing twisted about that. It's normal.

  • Niles: Oh, I know! So given two people with equally complex histories... What do you think would happen if they joined to create a new future together? As a married couple.
  • Avatar: A married couple?!
  • Niles: Yes. I've done a lot of thinking about this. You and I have so much in common. You're the first person I've ever met who has shown genuine empathy for me. And I don't believe that's a coincidence.
  • Avatar: This is a lot to take in.
  • Niles: Do you think you could marry me? I want you to take this ring.
  • Avatar: Niles...
  • Niles: You seem hesitant. Very well, I was aware that my chances were slim...
  • Avatar: You speak too soon, Niles.
  • Niles: Hmm?
  • Avatar: In truth, I've become fascinated with you. You've overcome so much. Our past is out of our control and irrelevant. You've shown me how to move forward. So...yes. I will marry you.
  • Niles: Ah, I knew I was right about you. How splendid! Well, now that the boring, sappy part is out of the way... We don't have to act so reserved.
  • Avatar: Wait, this is your "reserved"?
  • Niles: Oh ho! You haven't seen anything yet.
  • Niles: Do you have any idea what you're getting into? I sure hope not...

  • Effie: *nom* *nom* *non* Mmm...
  • Avatar: Ah, Effie. Hosting a feast, are you? Who else is invited?
  • Effie: Oh, hello, Lord Avatar. No, why do you ask?
  • Avatar: Um... because you have enough food for twelve people laid out here.
  • Effie: Twelve people? Goodness, no. This is simply my lunch—nothing more. I expend a great deal of energy in the course of my training, you see. Afterward, I must refuel. All in the name of protecting Lady Elise, of course!
  • Avatar: I see. Well, Elise is lucky to have someone like you on her side.
  • Effie: Thank you for the kind words! I do hope I'm doing an adequate job for her. After all, I owe her everything...
  • Avatar: Is that so? How do you mean?
  • Effie: Oh yes, I wouldn't be the person I am today without her.
  • Avatar: That sounds like an interesting story. Care to fill me in?
  • Effie: I suppose I could... but it's a long story, and I like to eat while my lunch is hot.
  • Avatar: Of course! Pardon me.
  • Effie: Thank you, Lord Avatar. *nom* *nom* *nom*

B Support Edit

  • Avatar: Effie, there you are! I've been looking all over for you. Wait, what are you doing?
  • Effie: Oh, Lord Avatar! I'm just patching up this wall. After it rained the other day, I noticed that a few of the boulders were loose. We can't have that, can we?
  • Avatar: I don't understand. What kind of repairs can you possibly—
  • Effie: Here, I'll show you. HRRRRGH!
  • Avatar: Unbelievable! How can you lift that rock with your bare hands?
  • Effie: Aw, it's nothing. Just years of training in service of Lady Elise.
  • Avatar: That's right... You were going to tell me a story about her the last time we spoke. Are you still willing to share?
  • Effie: Certainly. But would you mind terribly if I continue working while we speak?
  • Avatar: Not at all.
  • Effie: Very well. I'll start at the beginning. I was born into extreme poverty— a child of the streets. And yet Lady Elise herself would often visit my slum in disguise.
  • Avatar: Really? I had no idea.
  • Effie: Oh, yes. Now, let me just grab another rock... HRAAAAAAA! Anyway, as I was saying, Lady Elise visited frequently, and we became fast friends. Hyup. HRRRRRGH! Whew! One day, while we were playing, some guards began harassing us. Lady Elise was forced to reveal her identity to get them to leave us alone.
  • Avatar: I see.
  • Effie: Her glory was so blinding at that moment that I can hardly describe it. YAAAAAHHHH!
  • Avatar: Pardon me, Effie, but your repairs are becoming too distracting!
  • Effie: How do you mean?
  • Avatar: I've never seen such feats of strength. It's all I can do to refrain from applauding! Perhaps you can finish telling me the story another time.
  • Effie: Sure, I suppose so, Lord Avatar. Although... I have a favor to ask of you.
  • Avatar: Certainly. Name it.
  • Effie: All this lifting is making me hungry. I know it's not your place, but... Would you mind terribly bringing me something to eat? A whole lot of something, preferably.
  • Avatar: Of course, Effie. I'll return shortly.
  • Effie: Thank you, Lord Avatar! Bring me as much food as you can carry, please!

A Support Edit

  • Avatar: Hello, Effie. I've been dying to hear the rest of your story.
  • Effie: Of course, Lord Avatar. Now, where did I leave off?
  • Avatar: Some guards were harassing you, and Lady Elise was forced to reveal her identity.
  • Effie: That's right. It was sad, because we both realized we wouldn't be able to play together anymore. I sat sobbing in the street for hours, until I realized how I could see Elise again!
  • Avatar: Go on...
  • Effie: Well, I realized that I must become a palace soldier.
  • Avatar: Of course. It all makes sense.
  • Effie: If I could make it as a soldier, I'd get to spend time at the palace. And to even be in the presence of Lady Elise once again seem intoxicating. From that day onward, I gave everything in my quest to become a soldier. Fortunately, I turned out to have some aptitude for the profession.
  • Avatar: Yes, I'd vouch for that...
  • Effie: Anyway, it was't long before my dream came true. Lady Elise took me on as a retainer. And that's where things stand today. She brought me hope in my darkest days. I would do anything for her. So, uh, that's my story...
  • Avatar: Effie, thank you so much for sharing this with me. I may have said this before, but Elise is truly lucky to have you as her retainer.
  • Effie: Thank you. That's nice to hear. But...
  • Avatar: But? What's wrong?
  • Effie: Lord Avatar... I feel a bit conflicted. Because lately, you've become so important to me.
  • Avatar: And this upsets you?
  • Effie: Yes--I mean, no! It's just that...well...Lady Elise is always my first priority. But at the same time, you've been so helpful in battle. And you've taken such an interest in my humble life story...
  • Avatar: Effie, there's nothing to worry about. I understand your feelings for Elise. I would never want to get in between you and her. I know that she comes first.
  • Effie: I'm so relieved to hear that! Because we do seem to be such a good team...On the battlefield.
  • Avatar: Yes, of course. On the battlefield.

  • Avatar: Effie! I've been looking all over for you.
  • Effie: Lord Avatar? What's going on? Why are you carrying that roast turkey?
  • Avatar: Well, Effie, I figured you might be wrapping up a workout and in need of sustenance. So, I had one of the cooks prepare a meal for us to share.
  • Effie: Aww, that's so thoughtful, Avatar! I mean...Lord Avatar.
  • Avatar: Please, just call me Avatar.
  • Effie: If you say so, Avatar. Anyway, can we start eating? I'm famished. Ooh, those dinner rolls look like they're fresh out of the oven. And you even have soft butter! Gimme!
  • Avatar: Effie, wait!
  • Effie: *crunch* *CRUNCH* *ptooie* What am I eating? This one has gravel or something in it. Yuck!
  • Avatar: Oh dear...
  • Effie: Omigosh... is this a ring?
  • Avatar: Was. It WAS a ring.
  • Effie: What?!
  • Avatar: Well, I suppose this is my moment, ring or not. Effie, will you marry me?
  • Effie: But...but... You're a prince! And I'm just a humble retainer.
  • Avatar: I don't care about such things. Why should it matter?
  • Effie: Well, perhaps it doesn't. But do you even know what you'd be getting into? When I'm not working out, I'm eating, resting, or guarding Elise. There isn't much room for anything else. Could you live like that?
  • Avatar: Effie, the last thing I'd want to do is disrupt your lifestyle. I know how important Elise is to you. But just think...if we were to marry, she would become your sister.
  • Effie: Elise...my sister? I think I'm going to faint...
  • Avatar: Yes, well, sister-in-law, I suppose. But still. Your bond would be closer than ever.
  • Effie: Then...I will. I will marry you, Avatar! Let me just put on this ring— Oh.
  • Avatar: Yes. It was rather pretty, I can assure you! But don't worry. It appears as though the gem has split evenly in two. We can have a blacksmith craft two matching rings. One for each of us.
  • Effie: That sounds perfect. I love you, Avatar!
  • Effie: Nothing is stronger than my love for you. Except my biceps...

With Arthur Edit

C Support Edit

  • Arthur: Mmm, do you smell that, Avatar? It's the sweet smell of justice!
  • Avatar: I take it from your...exuberance that you just returned from a mission? Of Justice?
  • Arthur: I received word that a group of ne'er-do-wells was on the attack. I've just disbanded their society of injustice and rescued the town they were terrorizing.
  • Avatar: Ne'er-do-wells, you say? Interesting. Was it a difficult battle?
  • Arthur: Not in the least! Whenever I stare evil in the eye, evil always blinks first.
  • Avatar: Haha, that's great! Right? It sounds great. Just what I'd expect from the hero of Nohr. I really admire how you've devoted yourself to helping the helpless.
  • Arthur: You're too kind, my lord! But truly, it was not trouble at all.
  • Avatar: But your pants are covered in mud! They didn't hurt you, did they?
  • Arthur: Oh...that's actually unrelated. I was hit by a couple of carriages on the way back.
  • Avatar: Huh?! You mean to say that two different carriages hit you in one day?
  • Arthur: And after that, the town's self-defense force mistook me for a thief. They chased after me for a good...oh, I don't know, 10 miles?
  • Avatar: Gods, that's awful. You must have been born under a truly unlucky star.
  • Arthur: So they say. Oh! I'm sorry, but I must take my leave now. I promised to deliver some mush-needed medicine for the village elderly today. Thank you for the chat, Avatar!
  • Avatar: What a character. I do hope he make it through his delivery in one piece...

B Support Edit

  • Arthur: Another day in the service of justice has been completed. Ahh, feels great!
  • Avatar: Hello, Arthur! May I ask what heroic deeds you have performed to help people today?
  • Arthur: Today I was asked to help a charitable organization prepare for a banquet. I just got back, actually. It went swimmingly!
  • Avatar: That's wonderful! Good work, as always.
  • Arthur: Thank you! it was a new experience for me. I was asked to be a taste tester. The food I tried was unfortunately past its prime... My stomach feels pretty terrible. However, the dishes the other tester tried were fine. The banquet was big success! And no one but myself has to endure this terrible stomach trauma, so I'm very happy.
  • Avatar: *sigh* Poor Arthur. Why am I not surprised?
  • Arthur: Life is full of lemons, my lord. So long as they're not spoiled to the point of being deadly, one must make lemonade! HAHAHAHAHA!
  • Avatar: Haha, I guess you're right. Um, do let me know if that stomachache gets worse, OK?
  • Arthur: As you wish! Now let's see... What's next on my justice agenda...? Hm, I'm actually done for the day! Perhaps I'll turn in early to prepare for tomorrow.
  • Avatar: What are you doing tomorrow?
  • Arthur: I volunteered to help a nearby village with its fire drill!
  • Avatar: F-fire drill?!
  • Arthur: Yep! I'll be teaching them how to put out a wildfire. Should be fun!
  • Avatar: W-wildfire?! ... Um, Arthur... Could you do me a favor?
  • Arthur: Certainly! Your wish is my command!
  • Avatar: Before you do the fire drill, douse yourself in water from head to toe. Got it?
  • Arthur: Um...come again?
  • Avatar: I want you to completely soak yourself in water before you light any fires. Promise me you'll do that, OK? You won't forget?
  • Arthur: I must admit I find your request a little strange, but you have my word!

A Support Edit

  • Avatar: Hello, Arthur! How did the fire drill go?
  • Arthur: Lord Avatar! Just the person I was hoping to run into. As promised, I drenched myself in water before the drill. It was a huge success!
  • Avatar: Ah, thank goodness. I had a bad feeling something might happen with the wildfire. I'm so glad I said something.
  • Arthur: The wildfire? Whatever do you mean? This has nothing to do with the fire...
  • Avatar: No? Then why was soaking yourself in water a success?
  • Arthur: Well. we conducted our drill by the river. Safety first, as I always say! Remembering your advice, I went to the river's edge to jump in before we started... That's when I slipped on some mud and fell-face first into the water.
  • Avatar: ... I really shouldn't be surprised. But I'm still confused... How was the day a success?
  • Arthur: Allow me to finish! The river I fell into had some remarkably swift rapids. I pride myself on being the best swimmer in town, but it was too much for even me.
  • Avatar: Good grief. Go on...
  • Arthur: Well, unfortunately for me, I wasn't the only thing fighting the rapids that day. It rained heavily the night before, so the river was full rocks and broken branches. Every stroke was accompanied by searing pain. It really pushed my limits. However, I didn't lose heart! It's important to keep your cool in emergency situations. With the fury of a thousand sharks pulsing in my veins, I fought with all my might! Through sheer grit and determination, I somehow made it safely back to shore. All of the villagers gave a huge round of applause when I surfaced. They said it was even more exciting than a wildfire—best show they'd seen in years!
  • Avatar: *sigh*
  • Arthur: It's a mad world, Lord Avatar! One must always be vigilant. Without your advice, I would have never had the chance to test the waters, if you will. I value any chance to grow, so I will surely be coming to you for advice more often. I'm quite certain this marks the beginning of a beautiful friendship!
  • Avatar: Happy to help, Arthur... I guess. I'm just glad you're OK.
  • Arthur: I'm more than OK. I'm on top of the world! You really are my lucky star.
  • Avatar: Thanks... I think...

  • Nyx: *sigh* It's not here either. I was sure I'd find it here...
  • Avatar: What's wrong, Nyx? You look upset.
  • Nyx: Avatar... It's not important.
  • Avatar: It looks important enough to you. If there's anyway I can help, just tell me.
  • Nyx: That's very kind of you. But if you really want to help, you can mind your business and stay out of my problems.
  • Avatar: Ah, er... I'm sorry. I didn't mean to pry.
  • Nyx: No harm done. You're young enough that I expect you can't help it.
  • Avatar: Me? Young? Unless I miss my guess, I'm clearly older than you.
  • Nyx: Are you through speaking?
  • Avatar: Y-yes...
  • Nyx: ...Perhaps I was too harsh. I know your intentions were good. But when a LADY has a secret to keep, don't go digging for answers. Be mindful of that in the future.

  • Nyx: Good. Now go.

  • Nyx: Nothing! How does this volume not contain what I'm looking for...?
  • Avatar: What ARE you looking for, exactly?
  • Nyx: Avatar... didn't I tell you not to pry into a lady's secrets?
  • Avatar: Yes, I remember something like that. But you can't expect me to turn a blind eye to a friend in need.
  • Nyx: A friend, hm?
  • Avatar: If you still insist that I leave, then I will.
  • Nyx: Hmhm... Ah, to be young again.
  • Avatar: What?
  • Nyx: Since you insist, I'll tell you. I'm looking for an artifact mirror. It's an ancient, sacred treasure, imbued with the power of the gods. It's rumored to reflect only the truth. And that's all I'll say about it.
  • Avatar: See, that wasn't so hard. You'll be the first to know if I come across any mystic-looking mirrors. On a different subject, though...
  • Nyx: Yes?
  • Avatar: You keep implying that I'm younger than you. But you seem to still be in your adolescence, at most.
  • Nyx: ...
  • 'Nyx: 'So you don't know.
  • Avatar: Know what?
  • Nyx: *sigh* I suppose you're bound to find out sooner or later. I may look young, but in truth, I'm much older than you.
  • Avatar: What?
  • Nyx: As a result of a serious error I made in my youth, I'm stuck in this form. I haven't physically aged in may years, but mentally, I'm quite old. If only I could see my true form...
  • Avatar: Oh, I see now.
  • Nyx: Yes. That's why I seek the artifact mirror. It alone can show me what I'm meant to look like at this age. Now you understand?
  • Avatar: Y-yes, that explains a lot. Thank you for sharing, Nyx.

  • Nyx: Nayah hortek tumlah turlah escheh... Haa!
  • Avatar: Nyx! What is this?! Are you casting a spell on yourself?!
  • Nyx: There's no harm in it. Try as I might, I can't find the artifact mirror. So I thought I'd try to break the curse directly.
  • Avatar: The curse?
  • Nyx: Yes. Do you remember how I told you that I stopped aging physically long ago? It is because I was cursed.
  • Avatar: I see. How did this happen?
  • Nyx: I showed a gift for magic at a young age. I was known by many as a prodigy. Such was my downfall. I became carried away in my inexperience and lost control of my magic. It backfired, and I have been stuck in this form since.
  • Avatar: I never knew of this...
  • Nyx: But while my body stopped changing, my mind and soul grew older. I was no longer seen as a prodigy but as a monster. And I don't blame those who saw me that way. That's what I am.
  • Avatar: No, you aren't! I've never thought of you that way.
  • Nyx: Indeed?
  • Avatar: Not once! If I thought you were a monster, we wouldn't be having this conversation.
  • Nyx: ...I suppose not.
  • Avatar: You're an important member of our force. And you've only become more so as I get to know you better.
  • Nyx: Avatar, I...
  • Avatar: I'm glad you opened up to me. I'm thrilled to finally get to know you better. I've been searching for that artifact mirror, too, but... Details have been hard to come by. Still, I'll keep trying!
  • Nyx: Thank you. But even if you don't find the mirror, I think I'll be all right. It's enough to know someone cares sufficiently that they'd make the effort.
  • Avatar: That's true... But even so, it would be better to find it, wouldn't you say? I won't give up. Just give me some time and have faith.
  • Nyx: Very well. I'll keep my expectations low, but who knows? You're so young...so ambitious, and so fearless. Though I am your elder, who's to say you're not the more mature of us?

  • Avatar: No, it isn't. It's a different one.
  • Nyx: What?
  • Avatar: This artifact mirror is said to have an interesting property. If it reflects the image of the one you intend to propose to, you'll get your wish.
  • Nyx: I don't understand.
  • Avatar: Then I'll make it clearer for you. Nyx, will you marry me?
  • Nyx: ... Unbelievable. Why would you toy with me like that?
  • Avatar: I'm not toying with you. It was a serious question.
  • Nyx: Indeed? That makes it even worse. I can never be married. Don't you understand? I'll be young forever. You'll grow old, and the wife walking beside you will be a young girl. People will talk. And they won't be saying nice things.
  • Avatar: I don't care how others see us. Not when I can see your true form.
  • Nyx: Come again?
  • Avatar: Well...maybe "see" isn't the right word. But I have a clear picture in my head of the older, more mature you. She's about shoulder height to me. A bit thin, just shy of gaunt. With long hair that drapes mysteriously over her childlike face...
  • Nyx: Avatar...
  • Avatar: In my mind, she has these charming crow's feet beneath her eyes when she laughs.
  • Nyx: That's enough about my wrinkles, please.
  • Avatar: Y-yes, well... If you want to see your true form, ask me and I'll describe her. I'll be your own artifact mirror.
  • Nyx: Hmhm. I wasn't expecting the artifact to be so big...or so talkative. But it works for me. Thank you, Avatar. I've never met anyone so invested in me as you. I feel like I could grow old with you... or the next best thing, anyway.
  • Avatar: So you'll marry me?
  • Nyx: Yes. If you'll have me, that is.
  • Avatar: I will. It's you I'm worried about—whether you'll still want me when I'm old and gray.
  • Nyx: Hmhm. I don't doubt that I will. You and I will stay happily together...forever.

  • Avatar: It is a little surprising, yes...
  • Charlotte: It really shouldn't be, though. Aren't all women like this? I mean, putting on an act in order to earn favor with others? It's exhausting, and it's nice to be able to drop it once in a while.
  • Avatar: Does this mean you've given up putting on your act?
  • Charlotte: Ha! As if! Just because I've dropped the act with you doesn't mean I'm telling everyone. You're not the only person I was trying to butter up to get to like me. But I suppose there's no harm in being myself around you all the time. You're not going to judge me for acting, are you?
  • Avatar: Not at all. It's just surprising, is all. I had no idea, to be honest. But I'd rather talk to the real Charlotte instead of the girl you pretend to be.
  • Charlotte: Really? Wow...
  • Avatar: Anyway, that's not why I came by today. I just wanted to return your lunch box. You left in such a hurry before, you forgot it. That really was one of the best lunches I have ever eaten.
  • Charlotte: I... Thank you, Lord Avatar. It's wonderful to hear that...
  • Avatar: I glad to say it. It really was a treat. Also, I wanted to return this to you. You left it behind as well. It looked important, so...
  • Charlotte: Is that... Ahhh! Give it here! ... It's...for sending money...
  • Avatar: You mail money? Who do you send it to?
  • Charlotte: My parents. It may be surprising to learn, but I actually care deeply about them. Growing up, we never had much, but they always made sure I knew they loved me. Ever since I left home, I've made sure to send them money whenever I can. ...I can imagine you don't believe a word I'm saying though, huh?
  • Avatar: No, I believe you. After all, you had no reason to lie to me about this, right? When you were pretending, you seemed helpless and frail. Without that act, you seem much stronger. And also...more direct.
  • Charlotte: Heh. Usually people just say I seem really, really scary. In any case, I have no reason to hold back in battle now.
  • Avatar: That is very true. And I imagine, seeing you going all in during battle... I'll be driven to fight better, too!

  • Avatar: I am completely sure. I think every day with you will be exciting.
  • Charlotte: Avatar... I'm not entirely sure you're all right in the head.
  • Avatar: That could be true, hahah. But if so, isn't that a good thing? Two people, crazy and in love, could never tire of each other.
  • Charlotte: ... You might be right. Thank you, Avatar.
  • Charlotte: I love you darling. I've always dreamt of this moment! I did think there would be more golden things around, though...

  • Benny: Good day, Lord Avatar.
  • Avatar: I'm terribly sorry to disturb you like this. But...er...what are you working on?
  • Benny: Oh, I'm crafting good-luck charms.
  • Avatar: Is...is that so? Well, again, I'm sorry to have bothered you.
  • Benny: You're not bothering me. Did you need something?
  • Avatar: Well, now that you mention it... Have you ever defeated an army of 10,000 soldiers all by yourself? It seems unlikely, but...
  • Benny: What?! Who told you that?
  • Avatar: I'm sorry! Please don't hurt me!
  • Benny: Why would I hurt you? Anyway, the answer is no.
  • Avatar: I also heard that you once tossed a man so far into the sky that he never came down.
  • Benny: That is true.
  • Avatar: What?! Really?!
  • Benny: No. Of course not.
  • Avatar: I'm sorry for asking. Please, don't destroy anything!
  • Benny: What would I destroy? Anyway, I'm not mad.
  • Avatar: Huh.
  • Benny: Are you surprised?
  • Avatar: A bit, yes. I've just heard so many crazy things about you...
  • Benny: What?!

B Support Edit

  • Avatar: Hello, Benny. Do you have a moment? I feel I must apologize...
  • Benny: It's OK. Happens all the time.
  • Avatar: Is that so? Well, that makes me feel even worse.
  • Benny: Please, don't. I know that my appearance can be off-putting. And for some reason, the stories about me spread like wildfire.
  • Avatar: Well, to be fair, they are good stories.
  • Benny: Oh? What's the latest you've heard?
  • Avatar: That...that you blew on a volcano to stop it from erupting...
  • Benny: False.
  • Avatar: That you forged an axe with your bare hands...
  • Benny: False.
  • Avatar: That you punched a bear in the face...
  • Benny: I would never! Who's been spreading that slander about me?!
  • Avatar: Gods...
  • Benny: Anyway, I'm sorry that I don't really live up to my reputation.
  • Avatar: Benny, please don't apologize. I think I'd like to learn more about who you really are, if that's all right.
  • Benny: What?!
  • Avatar: Did I say something wrong?
  • Benny: No, I'm just surprised. You're the first person to express that kind of interest in me.
  • Avatar: Well, that's a shame. Because you seem like a nice guy.
  • Benny: Ha. I suppose I am. Thanks for not being scared of me, Avatar.

  • Avatar: Oh, hey, Benny! I didn't expect to see anyone out here. Er...what exactly are you doing?
  • Benny: Hello, Avatar. I'm just feeding some of the forest animals.
  • Avatar: Ah. That's kind of you. I can't believe that wild animals would let you get so close, though... You're practically petting that squirrel!
  • Benny: Who, Charles here? He's one of my friends. He'll let me pet him anytime. See? I've always been able to relate to these animals better than humans.
  • Avatar: That's kind of sad...
  • Benny: Is that sad? Me liking animals?
  • Avatar: Well, I guess if you're not sad about it...then it's not sad. Honestly, Benny, I just can't believe the reputation you've acquired. It doesn't fir your real personality at all.
  • Benny: I suppose the tales have taken on a life of their own. Anyway, I'm glad I ran into you. Here, take this.
  • Avatar: What is it?
  • Benny: Consider it a...good-luck charm.
  • Avatar: Did you make this yourself? Why give it to me?
  • Benny: I just... I don't want you to die. And maybe this can help you stay safe on the battlefield.
  • Avatar: Well...that's pretty morbid. But also quite thoughtful. Thank you, Benny.
  • Benny: It's nothing...
  • Avatar: No, it's not. You made this by hand...for me! I'll proudly wear it into battle.
  • Benny: I'm glad to hear that.
  • Avatar: I just want to see you come out of your shell a little bit, Benny. You might not be the smoothest talker around, but you're kind and generous. People shouldn't be afraid of you.

  • Keaton: Yeah, look at those tatters! You ever smell stuffing that musky before?
  • Avatar: Don't you think we should try and patch the poor thing up a bit?
  • Keaton: What? Why? Don't you see? This is A-grade stuff! Look at all that moist cotton falling out of the open belly! Those clumps of lint! *sniff sniff* And the stench---divine! I love it!
  • Avatar: OK, Keaton. If you say so.
  • Keaton: Man, you're missing out if you can't appreciate all this goodness.
  • Avatar: Really, now?
  • Keaton: I guess I'll just have to teach you how to see this stuff like a real connoisseur.
  • Avatar: Huh?
  • Keaton: We're gonna take a look at my treasure collection! Look, touch, sniff, and learn!
  • Avatar: Er, what exactly do you mean by "treasure"?
  • Keaton: Ohoho! Eager to see the goods, huh? I guess I can whet your appetite a bit! Well, just one of my many fine pieces is an embalmed lizard! I also have a giant bat corpse! It's huge!

  • Avatar: That's OK. I think I'll be able to contain my drool. Thanks, though.
  • Keaton: Your loss! OK, so, first up---a spool of spider webbing! There are even spots with flies and bugs in it too! Sorta like raisins in a cookie, but waaay better!
  • Avatar: That's... incredible.
  • Keaton: You bet your tail it is! And look at this: A necklace made from bat fangs! Just think of all the different animals whose blood has touched this stuff! And they're all still so sharp! See? It's prickly when you wear it, but I think it feels good. No pleasure like pain! Wanna try?
  • Avatar: No. But thanks.
  • Keaton: Yeesh, tough customer. So, what do you think? Pretty cool, huh?
  • Avatar: Not really. I think I'm missing something. Why do you like this junk so much?
  • Keaton: What? Junk? Well, what've YOU got that;s so much better? Come on! Out with it!
  • Avatar: I don't have any treasures, but I do have books and ornaments that are dear to me.
  • Keaton: Neat! I knew you weren't a lost cause! You mean, like, moldy books, right? And how much rust have you got on your ornaments? Anything fully crusted over?
  • Avatar: Er, no. Nothing moldy or rusted.
  • Keaton: So...they're just normal? Ugh. Never mind. No Accounting for taste...
  • Avatar: Sure. But that doesn't mean we can't get along, right? What do you say? Friends?
  • Keaton: What? Who said I wanted to be friends? Sure that wasn't me, I'll tell you that. I just wanted to make you see how great my treasures were, is all. But I guess if YOU want to be friends, I can deal.

  • Avatar: Hm?
  • Keaton: What? Got something to say?
  • Avatar: This isn't the sort of thing that would normally go in your collection, is it?
  • Keaton: Why do you say that?
  • Avatar: I think I know you well enough by now, Keaton. This isn't your thing.
  • Keaton: I see. Hm. Maybe you're right. Now that I've given it a closer look, I'm starting to think it's not so great after all. I GUESS I might as well just give it to you, Avatar.
  • Avatar: Keaton...did you plan on giving this to me the whole time?
  • Keaton: What?! Don't be crazy! This was pure spontaneity! I just happened to find something and happened to bump into you! And then I happened to realize I didn't like it, and you happened to like it! It just makes sense to give it to you now!
  • Avatar: Oh, I see. Of course. Thank you, Keaton.
  • Keaton: No need to thank me. You just got lucky, that's all.
  • Avatar: Your tail is wagging like crazy.
  • Keaton: Oh, that's just...it cramping up! Ow ow ow! Oh man, how crazy! You must think I'm super happy or something. What a hilarious misunderstanding!

  • Flora: Lord Avatar! Where are Jakob and Felicia? Should you be unguarded like this?
  • Avatar: It's quite all right, Flora. I dismissed both of them for the day. They'd work themselves to death if I allowed it. I have to make sure they get some free time every now and then, just like the rest of us.
  • Flora: You're so kind! Well, if that's the case, please allow me to assist you in their stead. Let's see here. Your hair looks a bit messy today.
  • Avatar: Huh? It does?
  • Flora: You can't go around performing your duties with messy hair! A man's appearance is the mark of his character, after all! There, much better.

  • Flora: Lord Avatar! I apologize for letting you see me in such a disgraceful state.
  • Avatar: Is something bothering you? You can always talk to me, you know.
  • Flora: Well...as you know, I'm a maid. It is my duty to never miss a single detail. Even the smallest lapse could cause embarrassment or discomfort to my master. Yet there is so much work to be done that I must also be very efficient with my time.
  • Avatar: Yes, and I think on both counts you're exemplary. So what's the issue?
  • Flora: Thank you, milord. The compliment means a lot coming from you. However, there are times where my duties make me feel so...exhausted. Er, but, ah— M-my apologies. I shouldn't be complaining like this to you, milord. I'm sure my problems are nothing compared to everyone else's. They all work so hard without complaint, and yet here I am, moping and whining.
  • Avatar: No, it's all right. I'm glad you opened up and let me know how you really fell.
  • Flora: Huh?
  • Avatar: You're a very talented maid, and you never seem to take a break. I had almost begun to wonder whether or not you were really human. But hearing your concerns just now has proven it to me. And...it's nice feeling closer to you.
  • Flora: Lord Avatar...
  • Avatar: Anyway, you're done for the day. Go get some rest, OK? And know that you can always take a break whenever you feel you need it. It won't do to have you exhausted all the time from overwork.
  • Flora: Thank you, Lord Avatar. But, before I go, can I adjust your hair really quickly? Just a little bit!

  • Gunter: Ah, greetings, Lord Avatar.
  • Avatar: What's that in your hand, Gunter? It looks like a piece of paper...covered in black circles on one side?
  • Gunter: Oh, you saw this? Don't worry yourself over it. It is nothing important. Just a relic from the past.
  • Avatar: A relic...from a past filled with black circles?
  • Gunter: Just an old hobby of mine, milord. Nothing more.
  • Avatar: I see... Honestly, I didn't think serious old Gunter would have any strange hobbies.
  • Gunter: Even at my age, I still hold a surprise or two.
  • Avatar: It does seem so! Hmmm, now that I think about it, though... I recall some of the fortress residents talking about you behaving oddly...
  • Gunter: Hahaha, you were so young then. How do you even remember that?
  • Avatar: It's one of the few memories I have from my early years... No one would say such things about you now, of course.
  • Gunter: Indeed, that is true. How much of your younger days do you remember, Lord Avatar?
  • Avatar: Not a lot at all, I'm afraid.
  • Gunter: It is possible that that is for the best...

B Support Edit

  • Avatar: Hello, Gunter...
  • Gunter: Ah, Lord Avatar. What's the matter?
  • Avatar: I searched my memories and recalled some of what the servants used to say about you.
  • Gunter: Oh? What did you remember?
  • Avatar: I remembered them talking about some of the things you used to do. One such thing was wandering the fortress late at night.
  • Gunter: Ah yes, I recall doing that. What else did they speak of?
  • Avatar: It had to do with your meals...
  • Gunter: Oh...
  • Avatar: They talked about how you'd often request two or more portions at mealtime. But you'd never finish either and would end up taking some back to your quarters. And despite the extra food, you'd do the same thing the next meal, too. So, wandering around rather than sleeping, and forgetting how much food you had... It was actually a bit worrying to remember this, you know.
  • Gunter: There is nothing to worry about, milord. I do not have those habits any longer.
  • Avatar: Really? They've simply gone away?
  • Gunter: Indeed.
  • Avatar: Gunter, I get the feeling you are hiding something from me. And I suspect it has something to do with that paper you were holding the other day.
  • Gunter: Milord, I appreciate your concern, but there are some things I want to keep to myself.
  • Avatar: If you insist, Gunter... I'm sorry, I feel like I may have brought up something I shouldn't have.
  • Gunter: No need to apologize. Perhaps someday we may talk about it.
  • Avatar: But not today?
  • Gunter: Some other time. When we do, it will be a long conversation.
  • Avatar: Oh. All right. Well, I'll make sure to set aside plenty of time.

A Support Edit

  • Gunter: Milord, I asked you here because I've decided to explain my old habits.
  • Avatar: Oh? I'm all ears!
  • Gunter: You may not remember, but you were very shy when you were first brought to Nohr. Because of how King Garon regarded you, you were treated like a prisoner. Including your diet. I was charged with your care, but the king would not let me improve your situation. I was forced to take matters into my own hands, starting with your meals.
  • Avatar: Wait, are you saying that the food you brought back to your quarters...?
  • Gunter: Indeed. I couldn't stand to see you suffer on third-rate leftovers. When you took that first bit of fresh bread, well... I nearly cried at the smile on your face.
  • Avatar: What about your random wanderings around the fortress?
  • Gunter: I could tell when I would visit you that you were not sleeping all that well. Whenever I could, I would make my way to your quarters after hours. I'd read stories to you until you fell asleep, then watch over you as you slept. It looked like I was wandering because no one at the fort could risk the king's anger. They would have reported my visits had they seen me come directly to you.
  • Avatar: I had no idea, Gunter... But wait - what were the black circles for?
  • Gunter: That day when I brought you bread for the first time... It was also the first time I saw you smile since you arrived in Nohr. I resolved to keep track of each time I saw you smile. For some reason I can't imagine, I decided to do that by drawing a circle each time. Of course, I don't have to anymore. You're almost always smiling these days.
  • Avatar: You know, Gunter, hearing all this... It helps me understand why I care about you. You've always been like a father to me, and now I know where that comes from. Thank you, Gunter. You've done so much for me. I don't think I'll ever be able to repay you in full.
  • Gunter: I have one suggestion, milord. Give me a reason to draw one last big circle.
  • Avatar: How would I do that?
  • Gunter: It's simple. Bring an end to this war. Then you'll smile your biggest smile yet.
  • Avatar: All right, Gunter. I believe I can honor your request.
  • Gunter: Thank you, Lord Avatar.

  • Izana: I want to be an excellent host to all of my guests—no matter where they're from!
  • Avatar: Izana, that's a nice thought, but the best way to do that isn't with gifts.
  • Izana: Don't be silly! Of course not. It's not just about favors. There's also the appetizers!
  • Avatar: Actually, it's more than that. I've learned a lot from you about being a host... Being a good host isn't what you give your guests, but how you make them feel. That's why everyone loves your parties. You make everyone feel special!
  • Izana: That's very kind of you to say. You'd make a thoughtful host as well. In fact, you're very generous. See? You've already given me a gift!

  • Fuga: Yes. Best friends and troublemakers! Your father was a bit of a prankster. He loved to play tricks on the royal family's servants.
  • Avatar: Really?!
  • Fuga: We got in a lot of trouble back ten, but what can I say? We were young.
  • Avatar: I have a hard time picturing that!
  • Fuga: Too soon, we were grown-ups. Your father married twice...and then he was gone.
  • Avatar: ...He died protecting me, right?
  • Fuga: Yes. He lived a full life. I sometimes wonder which of us got the better deal. I've spent my whole life as a soldier, training and fighting, and he is at peace. Well, I'm not one to get emotional. Is that enough for you today?
  • Avatar: Oh, yes, Chieftain Fuga! Thank you so much!

B Support Edit

  • Avatar: Chieftain Fuga, you look upset. Is something wrong?
  • Fuga: Yes! A young lady asked me on a date. Me! What was she thinking?!
  • Avatar: You have to tell me what happened! Did you say yes?
  • Fuga: Of course not! Can you imagine a man my age going on a date?
  • Avatar: Sure, I can! You're not that old. Besides, it's never too late to fall in love.
  • Fuga: Wait until you get to be my age, and then see if you feel the same!
  • Avatar: The other day you said you'd spent your whole life as a soldier... You're the chief of the Wind Tribe! Haven't you considered marriage before?
  • Fuga: Only once.
  • Avatar: Well, what happened? Why didn't you marry her?
  • Fuga: It wasn't meant to be. Before I could tell er how I felt, she married someone else. When she and her husband were killed by Faceless, I raised her son as my own.
  • Avatar: You're talking about Hayato aren't you? You were in love with his mother!
  • Fuga: Yes. Pathetic, isn't it?
  • Avatar: No! I think it's amazing that you raised Hayato as your own! That was brave of you.
  • Fuga: That is kind of you to say. Please, tell no one else. I am an old man now, and I've managed to keep this a secret all this time.
  • Avatar: Of course, Chieftain Fuga! I won't tell! I swear to you---from one man to another.
  • Fuga: Thank you, Avatar. I appreciate it.

  • Fuga: Oh! ...Sorry, Avatar. I was lost in thought.
  • Avatar: Haha! Even when you're in a daze, you still look intimidating. How do you do that?
  • Fuga: ...No idea.
  • Avatar: Chieftain Fuga, are you OK? You seem a bit gloomy.
  • Fuga: I was thinking I should retire and let you young people finish this fight. It's time for the next generation to step up. King Sumeragi is gone. I should follow him.
  • Avatar: What?! How can you say that?
  • Fuga: I didn't think you'd be so upset.
  • Avatar: Not a day goes by that I don't wish my father was still here! I can't believe you would leave me too!
  • Fuga: Th-that's not what I meant...
  • Avatar: I know it's time for my generation to start taking responsibility for the future... But we still need guidance from people like you!
  • Fuga: Of course, and you shall have it.
  • Avatar: Good! You have so much wisdom to share with us...to share with me!
  • Fuga: You're right. These are my twilight years, but the sun hasn't gone down on me yet! It's my duty to carry the burden left by your father and others who have passed on.
  • Avatar: Thank you, Chieftain Fuga!
  • Fuga: You know, sometimes I feel like I'm talking with a young Sumeragi.
  • Avatar: Really?!
  • Fuga: You are passionate and strong...just like he was. I am honored to be your friend.
  • Avatar: You consider me a friend?
  • Fuga: We have fought side by side---just as I did with your father. We are brothers-in-arms.
  • Avatar: I guess you're right! I look forward to being your friend for many, many years!
  • Fuga: As do I!

  • Kana: Well...
  • Avatar: *sigh* I know that sometimes you might want to keep things to yourself. So I won't force you to tell me what you bought. But I hope you will when you think the time is right. OK?
  • Kana: ...
  • Avatar: Maybe I'm overreacting, but I feel like we need to be open with each other. I don't want us to drif apart. Do you understand?
  • Kana: I'm sorry, Papa! I wasn't trying to make you sad! I just wanted to surprise you.
  • Avatar: Huh? What do you mean?
  • Kana: Heehee. Well... I wanted to give you this, Papa! Here, take it!
  • Avatar: A ring?
  • Kana: Yep! I heard that people in royal families were sometimes called ring-givers! So I thought it would be nice for you to receive a ring for once!
  • Avatar: Oh, Kana.
  • Kana: I couldn't buy a very expensive one, but I thought this one would look good on you. I wanted to tell you how grateful I am for everything you've done for me. And I wanted it to be a surprise... I'm sorry.
  • Avatar: Ah, that explains everything. Thank you, Kana. You worked really hard to buy me this ring, didn't you? I'm sorry for making you feel so bad and ruining your surprise.
  • Kana: So you're not sad anymore?

  • Avatar: I've had a lot of people asking me that lately. Have I really been smiling that much?
  • Kana: Yep! You should see it! You've got the biggest, goofiest grin, Papa!
  • Avatar: Hahaha. Maybe I should find a mirror... Ah... anyways, I wanted to see you because I thought I should give you a gift in return.
  • Kana: Really?! A present? For me?! What is it, Papa? What is it?!
  • Avatar: Well, since you got me a ring, I figured it would be nice to return the favor.
  • Kana: Ooooooh! Wow wow! It's so sparkly! But I think it's a little big for me. Look! It slips right off!
  • Avatar: Oh, don't worry. I got you a bigger ring because someday you'll grow into it. And until you do, we can do this...
  • Kana: Oh! You turned it into a necklace!
  • Avatar: Now you can wear it until you're big enough for it to fit on your finger.
  • Kana: Thanks, Papa!
  • Avatar: Aghhhh! Don't jump at me like that! You'll scare me.
  • Kana: Heehee. Sorry! I can't wait to grow up! Necklaces are nice but I want to wear rings like you, Papa!
  • Avatar: I'm sure it will look beautiful on you, Kana.
  • Kana: Me too! But... will we still be this close, even when I'm all grown up?

  • Shigure: ...
  • Avatar: Hmmm...
  • Shigure: AGH! By bellberry's bones, Avatar! You startled me.
  • Avatar: Ah, I'm sorry. Did I scare you?
  • Shigure: No, no, it's all right. I just wasn't expecting you. Especially not so... close.
  • Avatar: Right, sorry about that. I was just trying to see what you were writing. In my defense, I did call your name first...
  • Shigure: You did? My apologies. I must not have heard. Sometimes when I draw, I get sucked into my own little world.
  • Avatar: Oh, so you were drawing! Can I see?
  • Shigure: Oh, certainly. It's nothing special, though. I was just drawing the view from here.
  • Avatar: Elfire, you're good at this! It looks like it was done by a professional!
  • Shigure: You really think so?
  • Avatar: I do. It looks like the beginnings of a masterwork. I never knew you were so talented, Shigure.
  • Shigure: Well, I spent a lot of time alone, growing up. Plenty of opportunity to draw. It wasn't any uncommon drive that made me draw, so much as my circumstances.
  • Avatar: You give yourself too little credit. If anything, being self-taught makes your archievement all the more impressive.
  • Shigure: That's very kind of you. You know... if you'd like, I have other works you could see.
  • Avatar: Really? Yes, I'd love to!
  • Shigure: Very well. Just give mesome time to organize, and I'll show them to you.
  • Avatar: Thanks! I'm looking forward to it already.

B Support Edit

  • Shigure: Avatar! I brought some of my pictures for you today.
  • Avatar: Thank you! I've been waiting for this. My gods... these are all as good as, if not better than, the one I saw the other day! Is this one Azura?
  • Shigure: It is.
  • Avatar: And this one... Is this a drawing of the Deeprealm you grew up in?
  • Shigure: Right again!
  • Avatar: Hm...
  • Shigure: And this... is a picture of thepeople who acted as my guardians while Ilived there.
  • Avatar: They all look so kind.
  • Shigure: They were. I know I'll never see them again... but this picture helps ease the pain. When I look atit, I remember things about each and every one of them.
  • Avatar: It must be very important to you.
  • Shigure: Yes. It is one of my most prized possessions.
  • Avatar: Looking at all these... it seems you prefer to draw real places and people, from sight.
  • Shigure: Yes, typically, however I do draw different things from time to time.
  • Avatar: Like what?
  • Shigure: In particular, I find myself drawing many pictures of a place I've never seen. I close my eyes, then draw, and repeat. Eventually, I have a finished work.
  • Avatar: Oh? That's interesting. And it just comes to you? You must have a good imagination.
  • Shigure: It's not quite like that. I don't think I'm imagining it, per se. It's more like I can remember those images. Just like anywhere else I've been.
  • Avatar: Now I'm really curious. Could you show me those pictures sometime?
  • Shigure: Certainly. I'll bring some by soon.

A Support Edit

  • Shigure: Avatar, I brought some of the pictures you wanted to see.
  • Avatar: Ah, you mean the ones of the place you see in your dreams? Hm... this is...
  • Shigure: Very curious, right?
  • Avatar: Yes. It's so... abstract. It looks as though everything's... floating. What strange shapes.
  • Shigure: Yes. It's nothing like Hoshido or Nohr, or even the world where our castle is. Yet I can clearly picture this scenery in my head, even now.
  • Avatar: Perhaps it is a vision of some kind.Or memories passed on to you from Azura.
  • Shigure: My mother?
  • Avatar: Yes. Such things are not unheard of.
  • Shigure: Normally I'd laugh at that sort of thing... but I suppose it's possible.
  • Avatar: Well, whatever the source, I feel these must be very special. May I continue to see these drawings as you make more?
  • Shigure: Of course. When I've finished the next one, you'll be the first one I'll show it to!

C Support Edit

  • Avatar: Back to painting again, Shigure?
  • Shigure: Hello, Father. I didn't hear you come in. I'm sorry... I know this is no time for artwork. We are at war, after all.
  • Avatar: That's not why I asked, Son. I wasn't trying to criticize you. Honestly, I feel bad for you. In a different time or place, you might have become a world-famous artist.
  • Shigure: That's kind of you to say, but I'm not so sure about that.
  • Avatar: You're paintings truly deserve to be seen. I wonder if there's a way to show off all this work to other people...
  • Shigure: What do you mean?
  • Avatar: Hmm... Wait, that's it! I know what to do. We should throw a solo exhibition and display all of your work.
  • Shigure: A-an exhibition? I could never do that. Besides, our troops are on the advance. The setup alone would be much more work than i's worth.
  • Avatar: It doesn't have to be such a grand affair. We just have to rent a tent and announce it to the troops and villagers nearby.
  • Shigure: B-but it seems so vain to reserve a whole tent just for my personal use.
  • Avatar: In trying times, it's important to find a way to quiet one's mind. This show could be a very welcome break from hardship for everyone.
  • Shigure: I'm not sure...
  • Avatar: I don't want to force you to do anything. What do you say?
  • Shigure: Ok, fine... We can give this exhibition a shot. The idea makes me a bit anxious though.
  • Avatar: This will be the event of the season! We should get started right away. I'll head into town to recruit volunteers. Good-bye, Son!
  • Shigure: Thank you, Father.

B Support Edit

  • Shigure: Hello, Father...
  • Avatar: Hey, Shigure. Say, is something on your mind?
  • Shigure: Well, you've done so much to make this exhibition possible. I just wanted to say thanks.
  • Avatar: No need to thank me. The villagers deserve all the credit. They're all on board because they can't wait to wait to see your artwork.
  • Shigure: O-oh, I see...
  • Avatar: Son, are you feeling nervous?
  • Shigure: Of course. But mostly I'm upset because my last painting isn't coming together...
  • Avatar: You mean the new piece that you're making just for the event? While I would love to see a new work from you, time is running short. If it's going to be too much trouble, you may want to think about completing it later. Does it really need to be in the show?
  • Shigure: I promised myself that I would finish it. Everyone has worked so hard to pitch in. I want them to know how much I appreciate all of their hard work. That means the exhibition must be great.
  • Avatar: I understand, but don't overwork yourself. All this effort will be pointless if you make yourself ill.
  • Shigure: I'll be careful. Thank you, Father. I should return to my easel.
  • Avatar: Yes, of course...
  • Avatar: I wonder what the subject is for this mystery painting. I can't help but be curious...

A Support Edit

  • Avatar: Shigure's big day is finally here. I wonder how the exhibition is going. I should take a look inside the tent. Hmm... Wow! Look at all these people. This crowd is spectacular! From what I've overheard, his work seems to be going over quite well. Thank the gods. This event appears to be a smashing success. Wait a minute... Where is the man of the hour?
  • Shigure: *pant*... *pant*...
  • Avatar: Shigure, why are you winded? Are you just now arriving? The exhibition has already begun. How could you be late to your own show? You're supposed to be the host!
  • Shigure: Sorry about that, Father. I had to stay up all night to finish my painting.
  • Avatar: You stayed awake all night just to finish up some art?!
  • Shigure: Y-yes, I did...
  • Avatar: I told you not to overwork yourself, right? Even if you hadn't completed this final piece, there are plenty of works on display. Look around. See all the smiling faces? These people are happy because they love your work. You almost ruined the show because of your carelessness.
  • Shigure: You don't understand. I promised myself that I would complete it, no matter what. I made this because I'm thankful for everything you've done for me, Father.
  • Avatar: What?! Th-this is your mother...and me...
  • Shigure: That's right. I painted a portrait of you two.
  • Avatar: So this is what you've been working on so tirelessly?
  • Shigure: Indeed, Father. 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.
  • Avatar: Shigure... Th-thank you... Thank you so much... *sniff*
  • Shigure: Father, it hurts when you hug me so tightly... Hahaha.
  • Avatar: I'm lucky to have such a wonderful son like you, Shigure.
  • Shigure: I'm very lucky too!
  • Avatar: Son, there's no time to talk. We have to put this handsome painting where everyone can see it!
  • Shigure: Sure, OK... It's a little embarrassing, though...
  • Avatar: Why, because it's personal? This is clearly the finist piece in your exhibition. It would be a shame if everyone couldn't enjoy it.

  • Dwyer: Eat one? Of course. That's not insulting at all. Why, I should have better gauged the capacity of your stomach. Why, I should have better gauged the capacity of your stomach.

  • Dwyer: I do. And I will. But I feel like I must outdo myself tomorrow. Ah! I know. I will make you the perfect cup of tea.
  • Avatar: I think this is perfect enough.
  • Dwyer: That?! That is FILTH. The perfect cup requires mint from a nearly unclimbable cliff near here. How will I get it though? It's hardly ever at the marketin town. Hmph!
  • Avatar: Well, don't put yourself out too much. Like I said, this tea is good.

I'll shine your shoes so bright, you'll blind yourself looking at them. And, of course, I'll make you tea. But I can't do any of that if you're lying in a broken heap at the bottom of a cliff.

  • Sophie: He has his good days when he'll listen and behave. But other days... Well, just yesterday he bit a villager and then ate all the food in a market stall.
  • Avatar: Oh, yes, I'd heard someone was putting together a food drive for those poor folk. I didn't realize that was Avel's doing...
  • Sophie: Times like this, shutting myself away in my tent and counting sand isn't cutting it.

  • Avatar: There's got to be a better use of your time than that.
  • Sophie: Avel's not bad - he's just special. I got him from my daddy, and I love him so much. But he won't listen when I beg him to stop kicking over old ladies...what if he ignores me in the middle of a fight when it counts?
  • Avatar: Kicking over old lades? That was Avel too...?!
  • Sophie: He always listens to Daddy! Why not me?
  • Avatar: I bet if Avel could see you now, he'd regret being so willful. It sounds like your relationship with him is a bit...fraught. You might be better off treating him as a friend, rather than a problem to be solved. You'll get better results with a smile than a frown. That goes for people and horses.

  • Avatar: I'm glad it's having an effect.
  • Sophie: Daddy gave me another tip, too. He said if I come across as hesitant, Avel will just ignore me. But if I stand firm and give clear, loud commands, he'll do what I say.

  • Avatar: Don't worry about it. You'll have him eating out of your hand in no time.
  • Sophie: Haha, I hope so. I'll try, at any rate!
  • Avatar: Wait... Speaking of Avel, where did he go?
  • Sophie: Huh? That's a good question... Aaaaaaaaah! Avel, NO! Get out of that pottery shop this instant! Don't you break those vases at me, young horse!

  • Avatar: Sophie, I wanted to -
  • Sophie: Give me juuuust a second, Avatar. I'm dealing with Avel problems right now. Bad horse! Whose clothes are these?! Give them back right now, or whoever's going around in the buff will catch a cold!
  • Avatar: He's still giving you trouble, is he?
  • Sophie: Yeah...it never ends. So, you were saying?
  • Avatar: Right. I have a very special gift for - Avel! Please don't swallow, I - Argh! He ate it!
  • Sophie: Avel!! I can't believe you!
  • Avatar: We have to get that box back! Do you know a way to, um...
  • Sophie: S-sorry, but I've never found a way to get him to cough things up. If it's really important, you might have to wait until...well...
  • Avatar: Ugh. This is a disaster.
  • Sophie: I tell you what - I'll make it up to you. He's my horse, after all. What was in that little box? Some sweets? A charm? Haha, was it a wedding ring?
  • Avatar: Ngh...
  • Sophie: Oh my gods...it was! You were totally going to propose to me, weren't you!
  • Avatar: That was my intent...though I'm ashamed to say I no longer have a ring to do it with.
  • Sophie: That's OK! You don't need a ring to show me you care. I knew that already.
  • Avatar: You did?
  • Sophie: Yeah. You always give me good advice and cheer me up when I'm feeling down. You're a great guy, Avatar. If you still had that ring, I'd definitely accept it. Although that's the problem, huh?
  • Avatar: What do you mean?
  • Sophie: Avel messed up your big moment. I know you and he haven't gotten along so well... But the two of us are a package deal. I can't leave my horse behind. No matter how much he acts up, he's my partner for life.
  • Avatar: Oh, I understand fully. There's a place for Avel in my heart, too.
  • Sophie: Th-there is? Even when he's about to chomp down on your hand...?
  • Avatar: GAH... This... This is nothing, haha... I can withstand any pain as long as I'm with you...no matter how...excruciating... I'll be fine! Gaaaaah...
  • Sophie: Avatar...that means a lot to me. In that case, I'd be happy to be your bride! And hey, look - I think Avel's passing the ring right now. Good boy, Avel!

  • Midori: What's wrong, Avatar? Are you sick?
  • Avatar: I think so... Lately I've been feeling very tired. I've been pushing myself so hard. Maybe the stress has finally caught up to me.
  • Midori: That's horrible! You need to take some medicine right away!
  • Avatar: Thank you, Midori, but I think I'll be all right if I just rest a little.
  • Midori: No! If you're sick, you have to treat it right away! The sooner, the better! Like I always say, you gotta nip it in the bud!
  • Avatar: If you say so...
  • Midori: Here, I've got some herbs to treat fatigue on me. I'll just whip something up for you!
  • Avatar: Oh? Thanks! That's very kind of you.
  • Midori: Now, lessee... I just need to mix this with this...and a pinch of that... Now, I just gotta grind this up into a powder and...presto! It's ready!
  • Avatar: Thank you. Should I take this with water?
  • Midori: Yep! Here you go!
  • Avatar: Cheers! *glug* *glug*
  • Midori: How do you feel?
  • Avatar: Huh? Doesn't most medicine take a while to kick in?
  • Midori: Yeah, but not this stuff! You should feel something right away!
  • Avatar: Really? Huh. I don't feel any different, though.
  • Midori: What? That's strange. Maybe I messed up the recipe... But never fear! Midori's still got a few more tricks up her sleeve! I'll mix up something else up and bring it over to you later. Sound good?
  • Avatar: Oh, no, that's OK. You needn't go to all that trouble just for me. I'll be fine, really.

  • Avatar: Hey! Don't say stuff like that. You'll jinx me! I'm fine, really. I even had a doctor take a look at me. She said there's nothing seriously wrong with me. I just need to rest.
  • Midori: But if all that's wrong is that you're tired, then my medicine should have worked. I guess I'm just not trying hard enough.
  • Avatar: Aw. Don't worry about it, Midori. I'll be just fine.
  • Midori: We can't just wait for that to happen, though! You're our leader! We can't have you at anything less than 100%! You have to get better right away. Wait here! I'm going to mix up my most potent energy tonic yet!

  • Avatar: Wow...this is a lot. Thank you so much for all your hard work, Midori. But I think I just needed to catch up on some sleep. After that nice, long nap, I feel much better.
  • Midori: What?! Really?! But...but...
  • Avatar: I'm so sorry. It must have taken you so long to make all these.
  • Midori: Yeah. This stinks... Wait! What am I saying?! My job is to heal people and make them feel better! Only a terrible apothecary would get depressed over their patient recovering! I should be happy that you're feeling better!
  • Avatar: Aw, Midori. It's OK. I'm so grateful for what you did.
  • Midori: Huh? But nothing I did worked.
  • Avatar: Sure, but you checked up on me a lot, made all this stuff, and tried your hardest. It was extremely kind of you, and in a way, it really did help me feel better. I'm sure seeing your smiling face played a big part in my recovery!
  • Midori: Aw, really? Shucks! Thank you, Avatar. You're way too nice.
  • Avatar: Please, never stop doing what you're doing. We're all very lucky to have an apothecary as devoted as you looking out for us. So keep caring for us the best you can. That's an order, Midori!

  • Avatar: Just thinking about how kind it was of you to have looked after me when I felt bad.
  • Midori: Aw, it was nothing! You can always count on the Midori-meister!
  • Avatar: And you show that kind of care to all our comrades as well?
  • Midori: Sure do!
  • Avatar: That's incredible! I don't know how you find the time.
  • Midori: Well, it's not like I've got a whole bunch of other things I like to do. And besides, taking care of people has got to be my top priority at all times! We're at war, aren't we? There are always more wounded to tend to.
  • Avatar: Yes, but...if you're always working to keep others healthy, who's looking out for you?
  • Midori: Huh?
  • Avatar: I mean that you need someone in your life who can make sure you don't overdo it. You're the type of person prone to giving too much of yourself to your work. You need a Midori of your own.
  • Midori: Huh. Yeah, I guess you've got a point. OK, Avatar! Will you be my Midori?
  • Avatar: M-me?
  • Midori: Yeah! 'Cause you're my best friend! If not you, then who else? And besides...I love you.

With Shiro Edit

C Support Edit

  • Shiro: Hey, Avatar, what's you're opinion on kings and queens?
  • Avatar: Kings and queens...? Umm...what are we talking about here? Are you asking what I think of King Garon, and King Sumeragi and Queen Mikoto?
  • Shiro: Them too. But also about, I dunno...future kings.
  • Avatar: Future kings, eh? Well, no one knows how the war will end. But it's reasonable to think that Ryoma will be crowned King of Hoshido.
  • Shiro: Probably, yeah.
  • Avatar: Which would make you next in the line for the throne after him.
  • Shiro: Because I'm his son, right?
  • Avatar: Well, yes. That's how succession works.
  • Shiro: ... Seems kinda old fashioned to me.
  • Avatar: Shiro...?
  • Shiro: Why should I be king just because I'm the old king's son?
  • Avatar: Do you not want the crown?
  • Shiro: It's not about what I want. I went most of my life not knowing I was a prince. And now that I do, I'm nost sure I have what it takes. A king needs certain qualities. He's gotta be a good leader. And I'm not that.
  • Avatar: Is that really what you think of yourself? I'd say you're quite capable of leadership.
  • Shiro: Sure, during training, or when I'm putting together a fishing trip. But that's just a few people. Anyone can say "Let's go fishing!" or "Time to train!" Getting an entire country to follow me, like a king should do, is way out of my league...
  • Avatar: Hahaha...you might be right about that.
  • Shiro: Heh. I'm glad it's not just me. I like the IDEA of being a king my father could be proud of. A big leader type. I'd love to do it if I thought I could. But if there's anyone more qualified than me, I think they should rule instead.
  • Avatar: Hmm...
  • Shiro: Oh, whoops. I think someone's coming over to talk to us. It's not really a problem if they heard us, but I'd rather keep it quiet for now. We'll talk more about this later, Avatar.
  • Avatar: Oh, sure...

B Support Edit

  • Avatar: I was thinking about what yousaid, about a king's duties... I'll grant that you're still inexperienced and not the natural-born leader that Ryoma is. But these aren't major problems for a king, I don't think. That's what a king has retainers, envoys, and advisors to help him with.
  • Shiro: That'd be true if every subject was as nice as the folks in this army. But not everyone's like that, are they? Wouldn't it be simpler to decide who rules by strength instead of bloodline?
  • Avatar: It depends on your definition of "strength."
  • Shiro: Oh, well, you know. You can just tell how strong someone is by fighting them. It's simple, fair... Every man, woman, and child would get it. The strongest person should be king. I think that would be a way better system. If I knew I was king because I was stronger than everyone, I'd be a lot more confident.
  • Avatar: What are you saying?! Are you advocating for the strong subjugating the weak? Isn't that exactly what King Garon does? If that's the kind of dog-eat-dog world you want, maybe you WOULD be a poor king!
  • Shiro: Whoa there, Avatar... I think maybe I'm not explaining this right.
  • Avatar: Oh?
  • Shiro: I'll put it another way. You got two commanding officers, right? One is this decorated hero, scars on her face and all. She nods confidently at you. The other keeps checking her clipboard and looking back at her sergeants for help. Whose unit do you join?
  • Avatar: Er... well...
  • Shiro: It's not even a choice, right? You pick the one who's gonna get the job done.
  • Avatar: I-I see your point.
  • Shiro: So my question is... how would you feel about being the next king of Hoshido, instead of me?
  • Avatar: Whaaat?! Where did you get that idea?!
  • Shiro: No, really, I think you've got what it takes. In terms of raw strength, definitely... But you're also generous and considerate, and you work well with people. You're much better suited to be king someday. Hoshido would be a better place under you than me.
  • Avatar: Shiro... I understand your perspective on this and why you'd think that. And I agree there's some merit to your line of thinking. If you're serious, though, we need to put the idea that I'm truly stronger to the rest.
  • Shiro: Yeah?
  • Avatar: I propose a duel. Single combat. You may use the lance you specialize in. That will prove whether I'm really as strong and capable as you think.
  • Shiro: Interesting... I accept!
  • Avatar: Good. I'll name a time and a place later. Until then...

  • Shiro: Aaah! You got past my defense! How...?!
  • Avatar: Hyaaaaaah!
  • Shiro: Urgh... ... Dammit...
  • Avatar: Now that my blade is at your throat, can we declare me the victor?
  • Shiro: Arrrrrrghhhhhh! I almost HAD you!
  • Avatar: Hahaha. You have a powerful swing, but it tends to go wide. I noticed your strikes were creating a blind spot for you, so I aimed for that. It took a few hasty blocks against your blows before I could gauge the distance... But once I had it figured out, I waited for my chance to enter into your guard.
  • Shiro: So the whole time I thought I was wearing you down was just part of your plan... Ugh! This was a disaster! I have to admit... you're much, much stronger than me.
  • Avatar: Then my first command is: Be a good king over Hoshido.
  • Shiro: Huh?
  • Avatar: Yes, you're still inexperienced. You're far from qualified yet to be king. But it's a big step that despite your status you realized your deficiencies. You're not satisfied with divine right. You're actively trying to make yourself worthy. I'd say that makes you perfectly suited to be king someday.
  • Shiro: Avatar...
  • Avatar: Remember, Ryoma isn't king yet. And he'll reign for a long time before it's your turn. You have time to grow into the role. When the day comes, you'll be a great king. So give yourself more credit.
  • Shiro: Hmm... When you put it like that, how can I refuse? After all, my original plan was to follow the orders of whoever's stronger. So if you're saying I can be king... then that's what I'll be!
  • Avatar: Someday you'll see that there's no one better suited to lead Hoshido than you. And when that time comes, I hope I'll be there to support you.
  • Shiro: Yeah... that'd be great, Avatar...!

  • Avatar: Yes! Yes you did! Where on earth did you come from?! There's not even anywhere to hide in here!
  • Kiragi: Heehee. There are plenty of places to hide if you know where to look. For example, there's a foot of space between the ceiling and the bookshelves. If you can climb up fast enough without toppling them, it's a great spot! And if you're in a corner, you can brace yourself against the walls near the ceiling!
  • Avatar: You what?! That sounds like the sort of othing only ninja can do...
  • Kiragi: Totally, right? I'm probably a world champ hide-and-seeker!
  • Avatar: Hide-and-seek, huh? That takes me back. I used to play it a lot when I was younger.
  • Kiragi: Really?
  • Avatar: Yeah. I wasn't allowed outside much, but the Northern Fortress was pretty big. There were plenty of places to hide.
  • Kiragi: Oh! Oh! How about you play hide-and-seek with me sometime? We could play in the forest! I'll even be "it" first!
  • Avatar: You want to play outside? I mean, I don't mind, but there are so many place to hide in the forest. Wouldn't you be at a disadvantage?
  • Kiragi: Heh heh heh. I might be good at hiding, but I'm even better at seeking. I've been hunting since I fell out of my swaddling clothes. I'll sniff you out from a league away!

B Support Edit

  • Kiragi: Haha! There you are!

  • Kiragi: Heehee. All the mud in the world can't hide you from Bloodhound Kiragi!
  • Avatar: Ugh. I'm actually starting to think you might be right... I was pretty confident going into this, but I haven't won even once...
  • Kiragi: Hey, don't feel bad! You chose some really good hiding spots! It's just that covering yourself up with all that stuff isn't enough.
  • Avatar: Why not? What do I have to do to make sure you can't see me?
  • Kiragi: I can't. I smell you!
  • Avatar: S-smell me?! But I just bathed this morning! I swear!
  • Kiragi: I know. I can smell the soap on you.
  • Avatar: What? Ever under all that mud? How?!
  • Kiragi: My nose is wayyyyy more sensitive than most people's. Although even if that weren't the case, you still make too much noise, Avatar.
  • Avatar: Ugh... yeah, yeah, I know. Whenever I hear you getting close, I get nervous and start shaking. I can't help it!
  • Kiragi: I know, but saying still is the key to hiding. You just gotta try harder! My ears are almost as gifted as my nose, so if you can't do better, you'll never win!
  • Avatar: Haha. Maybe I should just accept defeat while I still have some dignity left. You have keener senses than half the animals in this forest! There's no way I can hide from you.
  • Kiragi: Nuh-uh! Here, to tell you the truth, your biggest giveaway is something else. If you can fix that, you might actually be able to beat me!
  • Avatar: Huh? What could you possibly be using besides your eyes, ears, and nose?
  • Kiragi: It's your aura. I can sense it!
  • Avatar: Aura? I've heard of those before. Are they truly real?
  • Kiragi: They are. Or... I think they are. People, animals... all living things have them. And I don't know why, but your aura is larger than most people's, Avatar. That's what makes it so easy to find you.
  • Avatar: So, if I could find a way to quiet my aura, you wouldn't be able to find me?
  • Kiragi: Yep!

  • Kiragi: I couldn't sense your aura at all today. How did you do it?
  • Avatar: Well, I tried a lot of things. Facial scrubs, special ointments, essential oils... But what did the trick was learning to suppress my dragon power.
  • Kiragi: Your dragon power?
  • Avatar: Yeah. There's a strange source of inner energy I always feel. Even in human form. I never really noticed it until after the first time I transformed. I still don't know what an aura is, but it sounded similar, so I gave it a shot.
  • Kiragi: Gave it a shot? How?
  • Avatar: Honestly? It's nothing too mystical. I just relax all my muscles and take deep breaths. Then I try to clear my mind of all thoughts, worries, anxieties, and fears.
  • Kiragi: Hmm... Doyou think you could try it again for me?
  • Avatar: Huh? Um, sure. It might be a bit hard forme to do it with you watching, though... OK. Here goes. ...

  • Asugi: Oh, cribbles. Here we go again. Why, oh why, did I expect anything different?
  • Avatar: Hm? Is something wrong?
  • Asugi: Whenever I invite someone to get sweets with me, they get the wrong idea. And when I tell them I don't want a date, they just think I'm being defensive. The worst part is when they get all twinkly eyed and I have to turn them down.
  • Avatar: So that's why you were grumbling to yourself.
  • Asugi: Yeah. I don't want any dates. I just want to enjoy some cheesecake and chat. Is that such a terrible thing?

  • Avatar: That pie was pretty tasty too.
  • Asugi: Yes! The crust was flaky and flavorful, but not obtrusively so. And the rapberries... Not too tart, and not too sweet. A balance rarely achieved by even master bakers! It feels as though the gods crafted a divine culinary harmony for my tongue alone.
  • Avatar: Haha.That's an... interesting way of describing food, Asugi. I don't think I ever fully realizedjust how passionate you are about this stuff.
  • Asugi: I-I wouldn'y say "passionate." I just like tasty things, is all!
  • Avatar: Haha! You're blushing! It's all right, I won't judge. I'm surprised you didn't become a chef, though.
  • Asugi: Eh, we can't all do what we're passionate about for a living. Some things are more important. Anyways, you need to learn to appreciate sweets more, friendo.
  • Avatar: I do? I thought I was appreciating them just fine!
  • Asugi: You kidding me, Boss? You spent more time picking out trinkets to bring back home than you did eating! You were rubbernecking like a regular country bumpkin,too. I'm surprised at you. What's with all this touristy stuf? Ain't that a bit below someone of your station?
  • Avatar: What about you? You were buying out every sweets shop and bakery we came across! Kind of looked like a country bumpkin yourself, if you ask me.
  • Asugi: Hey! It's not my fault. They didn't have places like that back in my Deeprealm.
  • Avatar: Haha. Trust me, I know the feeling I grew up confined to a castle, remember?
  • Asugi: Fair enough. It's too bad they don't let you box up any of their cheesecake, though. If would have been nice to bring it back and share with everyone.
  • Avatar: Why don't we take them all there instead?
  • Asugi: That tiny place? We'd never fit! Oh, I know! I'll just make it myself.
  • Avatar: Make it yourself? How?!
  • Asugi: Oh, I've got my waps. Now that I've tasted it,I think I can whip something up. I'm going to need your help, though. I want to make sure that it's an exact replica.

  • Asugi: OK. I think we're done.

  • Asugi: Oh, hop off. It's not that amazing.
  • Avatar: You got the tastes down perfectly... In fact, these might be a little better. Even I know this can't have possibly been easy. How did you do it?
  • Asugi: I havesome connections that managed to get me a list of the bakery's ingredients. From there, it was just a matter of taste and patience to figure out the rest. But, of course, it'd be boring to just make copies, so I added a few of my own twists. Notice the lemon zest on that raspberry tart? That was ol' Asugi's doing.
  • Avatar: Mm. This really is a remarkable achievement, Asugi.
  • Asugi: Yep. But I hate to say I can't do this again, I don't want to steal their business. Ain't gonna let anyone call me a thief.

  • Asugi: Hey now, don't get too crazy there. You're a prince, remember? And I'm a ninja. We've got duties to see to. Besides, can you imagine the figure we'd cut in a bakery?
  • Avatar: I can. I think it'd be great! A prince-ninja bakery! But... you're right. Duty first. Maybe we could do a bake sale every now and then though.

  • Selkie: Ugh, FINE. I just want to know why you interrupted me in that battle!
  • Avatar: You mean when you were about to finish off that opponent?
  • Selkie: Yeah! We're supposed to be on the same team. What were you thinking?
  • Avatar: Selkie, that opponent was already defeated. I stopped you out of mercy.
  • Selkie: Defeated? He was still alive. He could have healed and attacked any one of us! Besides, when i'm in my animal form, it's not easy to just pull back like that. You of all people should understand.
  • Avatar: I'm afraid that i don't have the same kind of hunting instinct that you do. But i must ask you, for all our sakes, to remain focused on the battlefield. Think about how your actions are impacting the greater cause.

  • Selkie: So...do you? It'd only take me a minute to catch another.
  • Avatar: Thanks, but no thanks.
  • Selkie: Your loss! Bird meat is delicious because it's so fatty.
  • Selkie: Mmm... I may need to catch another one for myself...
  • Avatar: You must be a pretty good hunter if it's that easy for you to catch a bird.
  • Selkie: Well, I don't mean to brag, but I once caught 50 birds in a day.
  • Selkie: But...I don't catch that many anymore.
  • Avatar: Oh? Why's that?
  • Selkie: Well, my dad told me that if I keep on catching that many, they'll disappear.
  • Selkie: So, I usually only catch one or two if I'm hungry or if I want to sell one at market.
  • Avatar: That seems quite reasonable.
  • Avatar: And...it sort of relates to what we were talking about the other day.
  • Selkie: I don't remember... What were we talking about?
  • Avatar: Remember the soldier you felled in battle?
  • Avatar: You were going in for the coup de grace, and I stopped you.
  • Selkie: The coup de what now?
  • Avatar: You were going to kill him, Selkie. Even though he no longer posed a threat.
  • Avatar: Sometimes it's important to show a little mercy.
  • Avatar: You never know... It could come back and benefit you later.
  • Selkie: Or HE could come back from his injury and stab me when I'm not looking!
  • Avatar: It's possible...but unlikely, given that both of his arms were broken.
  • Avatar: Anyway, the point is that that soldier could have offered us information.
  • Avatar: And what if you found yourself in a similar situation?
  • Avatar: Disarmed, disabled, but still alive... Would you want a second chance?

  • Avatar: O-OK...
  • Hisame: ...About my father.
  • Avatar: You mean... Hinata?
  • Hisame: Exactly. His attitude toward relationships makes me ill. The way he fawns over every woman he comes across, you'd forget he was married!
  • Avatar: It could be worse, right? He could be rude to every woman he comes across.
  • Hisame: I see your point... but, no. Today, he was at the market, and the sales-woman flirtedher way right into his wallet. He was so busy ogling her that he didn't notice the price on anything! Now, we could probably setup our own shop. We have enough clothes!

  • Mitama: H-hey! Were you not listening? I told you! "I will never come outside"!
  • Avatar: I know! That's why I came in.
  • Mitama: Oh. Right. So... what did you want?
  • Avatar: Nothing in particular. I just wanted to come chat with you, is all. You're always locked up in your room. I figured you must get lonely sometimes. I know I was.
  • Mitama: You were? Did you used to lock yourself away as well?
  • Avatar: Not quite. Unlike you, I wasn't exactly allowed to leave. Or... is there something keeping you in that I'm not aware of?
  • Mitama: To be all alone / Cloistered from the fallen world / It is a blessing. There is nothing compelling me to remain. I simply enjoy it.
  • Avatar: I figured as much. So what do you spend all your time doing inside?
  • Mitama: As you no doubt have guessed, I read and write poems. Haiku, in paticular.
  • Avatar: Haiku?
  • Mitama: It is a poetic form belonging to the Hoshidan literary tradition. The first line contains five syllables. The second, seven. The third, five again. It lends itself to brevity and the juxtaposition of striking images.
  • Avatar: 5-7-5, huh? Maybe I can come up with one! Sweet Mitama / Loves to read and write haiku / A poetic form. How was that?
  • Mitama: You used four syllables in the first line!
  • Avatar: Oh. You're right. OK, OK! Let me try again. Courage and genius / Are less important in war, I guess / Than weapons and foodstuffs. How's that?
  • Mitama: I am concerned for you. Do you not know how to count? The syllables were all wrong. And pointlessly so! You could have just removed the "I think" and changed "foodstuffs" to food"! I do not understand how one could possibly be so inept. Thank goodness our victory does not depend upon your poetic skills.
  • Avatar: I'm sorry. This stuff is harder than I'd thought. But I won't give up!

  • Avatar: Ate beef ribs last night / But they were not very good / Unarinated. Woke up this morning / With a really weird cowlick / Isn't that something? How about those? Am I a master poet yet?
  • Mitama: Well, I suppose they do follow the 5-7-5 pattern. But... *sigh*
  • Avatar: What's wrong? Did I not do a good job?
  • Mitama: No. Syllable count is not the only thing of importance in the composition of haiku. You need to consider the images you invoke and the emotions you evoke. The ideas of transcience, imperfection and incompleteness are key here. Together, they embody "wabi-sabi."
  • Avatar: Wabi... sabi? Like wasabi?
  • Mitama: Teehee. No. Wabi-sabi is a Hoshidan aesthetic worldview. Good haiku always show and understanding of and aprreciation for wabi-sabi. Here, allow me to compose an example for you: So long you've been gone / I will become young again / Before you return. This is a poem about a woman waiting for her husband to come back to her. She has grown old waiting and believes he will never come back.
  • Avatar: Oh, I get it! She says she'll be young again before he returns because it's impossible!
  • Mitama: Yes, but that's not the only meaning. His return would also bring her a youthful joy. Or, alternatively, it could means she will die and be reborn before he comes back. The concision of the haiku form therefore allows for much ambiguity. And this is where much of a poem's beauty lies—in its ambiguity.
  • Avatar: Wow. You really know your stuff, don't you, Mitama? Please, go on. I'd like to hear another one.
  • Mitama: I would be happy to. Listen: A blast of cold wind / White crystals drift from heaven / The gray firmament. Observe how the word "winter" is never used, yet it is present throughout. Seasonal terms are used to indicate it without telling the reader outright.
  • Avatar: I see, I see! Very good! I think I'm starting to get it.
  • Mitama: That is the key to haiku—to subtly stir the heart through simple, suggestive images. I encourage you to try to use such seasonal terms in your own poems.
  • Avatar: I see. But this makes me wonder... If you write about seasons so much, shouldn't you go outside more?
  • Mitama: Huh?! W-well, I... I...
  • Avatar: It just seems like you'd have a better idea of what to write if you experience them.
  • Mitama: Well, that may be true, but—

  • Mitama: The soul of Nature / Stirs in the stillest dewdrops / Gems on greening leaves.
  • Avatar: Hm. So with this one you're saying that water is the essence of all life, right? Because it's the "soul" of every living thing in nature?
  • Mitama: Precisely. Now, for something new: In red evening / When the crows caw their sad song / I contemplate time. Burning now through the mountains / Is the sadness of their song. This is a slightly different form, calle the tanka. It's like a haiku, but with five lines. The last two have seven syllables.
  • Avatar: I see. It's very beautiful. And this one is about autumn, right? "Red evening" doesn't just mean any old sunset, does it?
  • Mitama: You are exactly correct. I'm impressed you caught that. It means you've been listening. It makes me very happy to see you've begun to understand haiku.
  • Avatar: Thanks! I think I've started to enjoy writing them too. Here, let me try one: The air glittering / In the spaces between trees / Sunlight dripping through.
  • Mitama: Very good! Such beautiful imagery. And you used a deft hand in indicating the season. The air glitters because there is both sunshine and rain; hence, springtime.
  • Avatar: Heh. Can't get anything past you, can I? OK, now I want to try a tanka. Here goes! A vision in dreams / The dark skyline of my home / Alights on my sight. Arms reach for this outer dark / But my legs walk in the light.
  • Mitama: Is this poem about your home country?
  • Avatar: Haha. You got me. Last night I dreamed of Nohr.
  • Mitama: I see. You miss it so much, and yet do not abandon your task. That is true strength. Well, in any case, you have improved greatly. I have nothing more to teach you. 
  • Avatar: You think so? Well, anything I've learned has been because of you. Though I admit, most of my images come from being outside, not from other poems. 
  • Mitama: I... see. What an unpleasant way to write. 
  • Avatar: Maybe you should spend a little more time outside too, Mitama. It can only help your poetry, right? 
  • Mitama: I shall think about it. Somewhat. Maybe. 
  • Avatar: You want to go on a hike tomorrow? Sounds great! I'll see you soon! Bye!

  • Avatar: OK. You're right. I'll read it to you.

  • Mitama: What?! You mean...
  • Avatar: Haha. Yes. This was more than just a poem. It was a confession.
  • Mitama: I can't believe it. You really feel that way about me? I am overwhelmed / Such confusion in my heart / Foolish, wild, and blind.
  • Avatar: I'm sorry. I know this is sudden, but I could not hide my feelings any longer.
  • Mitama: Your poem, just now / Has shattered my very soul / With supernal might.
  • Avatar: Shattered?! What's supernal? I'm sorry, Mitama! Have I offended you?
  • Mitama: You left me stricken / Smote me with the blade of love / You left me stricken.
  • Avatar: By the blade of love... Wait. Do you mean stricken in a good way, then? So... you're actually happy about my confession?
  • Mitama: Yes. I am. I am so very happy, I could cry. This is the first time I've written poems with such emotion. Will you stay by my side forever and write poems with me?
  • Avatar: I would have it no other way.
  • Mitama: My heart is giddy / A new adventure awaits / We go together! Heehee. I love you, Avatar!

  • Caeldori: Which is exactly why I must train—to maintain my skills in this area.
  • Avatar: That's a great sentiment, but I think there are other things you could be working on. For example, I've noticed that in the field, your teamwork isn't always perfect. Sometimes you go too fast, or take risks to yourself in order to help others. It's laudable, but dangerous. An army must fight as one body, not many. So it may be better to save your energy for our team drills.

  • Avatar: Haha. Thank you for the kind words, but I don't know if I'm as saintly as you think. But as far as trying to be a good person—that's a noble goal. It's a bit vague, though. Is there anything in partiular you'd like me to teach you?
  • Caeldori: Yes. You have many wonderful qualities, but the one I admire most is your compassion... So...I want you to teach me...about love.
  • Avatar: Agh—um—er—you—what?!
  • Caeldori: I see. That's OK. It was foolish of me to ask.
  • Avatar: I-I just don't think I have anything to teach you. I mean, there's nothing to teach, right? You just have to learn for yourself. Besides, I'm not sure how it would help you to be a good person...
  • Caeldori: OK! I'm sorry! You look so flustered. This isn't at all how I'd wanted things to go...Why do I always fall in love with men who never love me back? In the Deeprealms, I fell in love with my guardian...who was married. With kids. And after I left, I fell for someone who turned out to be engaged to another. Agh! I'm so pathetic! How will Father ever respect me?
  • Avatar: You went through all that? I'm so sorry! I didn't mean to—I never—Wait, does this mean you love...?
  • Caeldori: You? Yes, it does.
  • Avatar: I-I see...
  • Caeldori: If you're going to reject me, then get on with it. I understand. It's what's always happened. I'm used to it by now.
  • Avatar: No, no. Caeldori...I love you too. It's just...
  • Caeldori: What? What is it?
  • Avatar: If we're to be together, I can't be your mentor anymore. We must be equals. I'll still teach you things, but I want to learn from you as well. Is that OK?
  • Caeldori: Yes! Of course it is! Oh, Avatar. So then you'll be mine?
  • Avatar: Well, in that case...yes. I will.
  • Caeldori: Really?! Thank you! Thank you so much!
  • Avatar: Haha. There's no need to thank me, Caeldori. I'm not doing it as a favor. I'm doing it because I love you.
  • Caeldori: Oh. Yes, of course. I'm just so happy. It's like all my prayers have been answered. It's the first time in my life I've ever felt this way. I promise, I will do everything in my power to make you happy...my love.
  • Caeldori: Our love is eternal; somehow I just know it. If we cross paths again in a distant future, dear love...promise you'll remember me. Promise...

  • Rhajat: Nope. *stare*
  • Avatar: I see. Well, would you mind not staring at me so intently?
  • Rhajat: Why? I'm not making any noise or physically disturbing you.
  • Avatar: I suppose that's true. But it just makes me feel a little uncomfortable. It seems every time I turn around, you're there, peeking at me.
  • Rhajat: Don't worry about it. I'm just watching over you.
  • Avatar: But why?
  • Rhajat: Because you're my soul mate, of course.
  • Avatar: What makes you say that? We barely know each other!
  • Rhajat: Because you saved my life. Watching over you for the rest of yours is the least I can do.
  • Avatar: I actually think that's the MOST you can do, Rhajat. And it's not necessary. Yes, I saved your life, but you would have done the same for me. As would anyone.
  • Rhajat: Uh...sure. Anyway, even if you hadn't saved my life, our fates were already intertwined.
  • Avatar: How so?
  • Rhajat: You really don't remember? Muhahaha...this is going to be fun. I'll be observing you even more carefully from now on...

  • Rhajat: I'm not laughing, I'm GIGGLING. Because following you around makes me giddy! And because I have a secret.
  • Avatar: Why don't you just tell me what it is? You know you want to.
  • Rhajat: No, this is much more fun. Muhaha!
  • Avatar: Fine. I'm not going to do anything for the rest of the day. You can just stand there and watch me do nothing if you want.
  • Rhajat: Ugh. Fine. If you're gonna be that way, I guess I'll spill the magic beans.
  • Avatar: Great. Let's hear it.
  • Rhajat: Well...you've been wondering why I'm so obsessed with you...
  • Avatar: Because I saved your life. Right?
  • Rhajat: No. Because you saved my life TWICE.
  • Avatar: What?! How is that possible? We never met before Hayato led us to your village.
  • Rhajat: Oh yes, we did... Do you remember when you came to visit my Deeprealm? There was a wild little girl there who ran around tirelessly, curious about everything.
  • Avatar: That was you?!
  • Rhajat: It was! I know it doesn't sound like me at all...but my whole life changed that day. In all my youthful enthusiasm, I nearly ran myself straight off a cliff. But you were there to catch me. It took me until the other day to make the connection that it was you. Heh, heh...
  • Avatar: Gods...I do remember that! But that little girl - I mean, you... You were so different. So...outgoing.
  • Rhajat: Yeah, well...that incident changed everything.
  • Avatar: I'm so sorry.
  • Rhajat: Don't be! It was the happiest day of my life. It made me realize that life is precious and I should be a little more selfish. Hayato hated it, but I started dabbling in the dark arts...teaching myself magic. Honestly, I owe you everything.
  • Avatar: Well, you're welcome. I guess...
  • Rhajat: Is that all you have to say?
  • Avatar: I'm sorry. I'm just in shock. I might need a little time to process this.

  • Rhajat: Avatar...I need to know something. What were you about to say the other day?
  • Avatar: Oh, right. It was nothing. I was just going to apologize.
  • Rhajat: For...what?
  • Avatar: For the way I treated you when you first started stalking - I mean WATCHING - me. I see now how much impact I've had in your life... It's totally understandable that you'd have strong feelings toward me.
  • Rhajat: Understandable, huh... You're talking to me like I'm still a little girl.
  • Avatar: Gah! You're right. I'm sorry again. Let's start over, shall we? I'm Avatar - nice to meet you! Let's pretend I haven't saved your life twice.
  • Rhajat: Ooh, role-playing... I like it. I'm Rhajat. I like cursing people, stalking people, and long walks through the graveyard. Heehee!

  • Rhajat: Heh. Aww, it's no fun if I can't surprise you every so often. Lately you've been noticing me right away.
  • Avatar: Well, one should get to know his own stalker - that's what I always say. So, did you need something?
  • Rhajat: Actually...yes.
  • Avatar: Well? Is it bad? You look upset?
  • Rhajat: I...I just wanted to let you know that I'm going to stop following you around.
  • Avatar: Really? Why?
  • Rhajat: Because that's what you want, isn't it? I've been a nuisance this whole time. That's no way to treat your hero.
  • Avatar: Your...hero? Gods... Rhajat, I'm so sorry to have given you the wrong impression. To be honest...I've enjoyed having you around...pretty much all of the time.
  • Rhajat: Do you mean that?
  • Avatar: I do. I don't know what I'd do anymore if I looked up and you weren't there. I...I've even followed YOU around once or twice.
  • Rhajat: What?! And I didn't notice? Grr!
  • Avatar: Hah! Maybe I've learned a thing or two from you.
  • Rhajat: I assure you that you still have more to learn. But I'm glad to see that you're becoming as obsessed with me as I am with you.
  • Avatar: Perhaps we should stop sneaking around each other like this... I'd like to spend the rest of my life with you in plain sight.
  • Rhajat: Eh, that doesn't sound too great. I'd like to be stalking you at least 20 percent of the time.

With Siegbert Edit

C Support Edit

  • Avatar: Siegbert, I see you reading that book all the time. What is it?
  • Siegbert: Hello, Avatar. It's a collection of paintings by one of my favorite artists.
  • Avatar: Oh really? May I take a look? A wheat field at harvest time... A calm ocean... You're a fan of scenery paintings, I take it?
  • Siegbert: I am, though I like most all paintings, really. I tend to take to looking at these paintings in particular afer a long battle. They're...calming, somehow. They help me to relax.
  • Avatar: I think I can see why.
  • Siegbert: You're more than welcome to borrow the book, if you'd like.
  • Avatar: That'd be wonderful! Are you sure you won't miss it?
  • Siegbert: Not at all---I have a decent collection of others that I can look at in the meantime.
  • Avatar: Then I'll take you up on your kind offer. Thank you!
  • Siegbert: The pleasure is all mine.
  • Avatar: This does have me wondering, though... Do you ever paint your own paintings?
  • Siegbert: It's...just a hobby. Growing up, I received instruction in all of the various arts.
  • Avatar: Talented with a brush and a sword... You're definitely Xander's son.
  • Siegbert: My father did make sure that my tutors covered a wide range of subjects. I do my best to show him that I appreciate the balanced education.
  • Avatar: You have nothing to worry about there, Siegbert.
  • Siegbert: Thank you, Avatar.

  • Siegbert: Hrmmm...
  • Avatar: Ah, Siegbert! There you are. I wanted to return the book I borrowed the other day.
  • Siegbert: Oh! How did you like it?
  • Avatar: It was lovely! Each picture was prettier than the last.
  • Siegbert: If you liked that one, I'm sure you'll enjoy some of the others I have. I'll bring them by sometime.
  • Avatar: Thank you! I'd love to see them.
  • Siegbert: ...
  • Avatar: Is something wrong, Siegbert? You seem to be a bit preoccupied.
  • Siegbert: Ah, I apologize. I've just found myself consumed by some things lately.
  • Avatar: You know that I'm always available to talk, if you need to.
  • Siegbert: That's very kind of you... Perhaps I could take you up on that offer? Right now?
  • Avatar: Certainly!
  • Siegbert: Do you think I am of any use here?
  • Avatar: What do you mean?
  • Siegbert: I'm worried that I am not living up to my potential, as my father's son. On second thought, forget I said anything. I won't fix anything by whining. Any time I spend worrying would be much better used working toward a solution. I'm sure that's what my father does, so I should follow his example.
  • Avatar: Siegbert, sometimes it's good to stop and worry for a little bit.
  • Siegbert: But I'm sure my father never lets his issues slow him down...
  • Avatar: Knowing Xander, that could very well be true, but... You are not your father, Siegbert. You don't have to be exactly like him. Why not take time to worry over things?
  • Siegbert: Are you sure?
  • Avatar: I'm positive.
  • Siegbert: Thank you. It's...comforting to hear someone say that. This is the first time I've ever talked about my worries with anyone. There's something about you that makes it easier, Avatar. I'm glad we met.

  • Siegbert: Pardon me, Avatar. Could I have a moment of your time?

  • Siegbert: I'm sorry! I didn't mean to! *whew* All right. You just...have t opromise me you won't laugh.
  • Avatar: Now why would I ever laugh at you, Siegbert?
  • Siegbert: I don't know, Avatar! I'm not used to showing weakness in front of others... I wanted to...show you this...
  • Avatar: A...picture? It certainly has a lot of character. Is this something you drew yourself?
  • Siegbert: ...Yes. But I'm a little ashamed with how it turned out. I thought though, since you enjoyed the book I shared with you... You might like to see one of my drawings, sort of inspired by it.
  • Avatar: This is everyone sitting around a bonfire, right? I think it's pretty charming, really.
  • Siegbert: Do you really?! I feel like I can't draw the way I really want to yet...
  • Avatar: Just looking at this picture, I can feel warm feelings bubbling up inside me.
  • Siegbert: You're too kind, Avatar. Thank you. Talking to you really helps, you know? I already feel like it's not such a bad thing to show my weaknesses to other people. I've been very focused on living up to my father's greatness. Knowing that I'll be king someday, I want to do everything to make Father proud.
  • Avatar: Siegbert...
  • Siegbert: But I realize, just like you said, that I don't need to be like him. Your words have really lifted my spirits. So, even though it's a very early picture... I wanted you to see what I can do. I wantd you to see me as I am.
  • Avatar: Thank you.
  • Siegbert: Avatar, I hope that I can continue to be vulnerable with you. I would really appreciate it.

  • Avatar: Thanks....
  • Forrest: I-is something the matter with my face? You're staring quite intently at it.
  • Avatar: Sorry, I didn't mean to be rude. It's just uncanny how you look like a young lady. An adorable young lady, at that.
  • Forrest: Adorable? What a sweet thing to say.
  • Avatar: Forrest, can I ask you something personal?
  • Forrest: Of course. I'm an open book sir.
  • Avatar: I've never met anyone like you, and I'm curious: Do you prefer boys or girls?
  • Forrest: *giggle* Romantically speaking you mean? Girls, exclusively. I can't imagine why you would have been confused on that point.
  • Avatar: Hahaha, sorry. Maybe it was a strange question. But it seems to me that if you walked around with your sweetheart... Well, you might get some funny looks from people who don't know you.
  • Forrest: Avatar, I get funny looks even when I walk around all on my lonesome. Whether I've got a paramour on my arm doesn't change things for me appreciably.
  • Avatar: Oh. Right, of course... I swear, I didn't mean anything by that...
  • Forrest: *giggle* I'm teasing you. Sorry if I went overboard with it.

  • Avatar: Having a good day, then?
  • Forrest: Yes! Just look at this!
  • Avatar: A bracelet? That ironwork flower looks like it took some expertise.
  • Forrest: Doesn't it, though? It's divine. I saw it at the market, and it was love at first sight. I didn't think twice before opening my purse strings.
  • Avatar: You're really wild about anything cute, aren't you?
  • Forrest: ...
  • Avatar: Forrest? I didn't offend you, did I?
  • Forrest: Avatar ... do you think I'm strange? Because of my interests and clothing that is. It's not that I consider myself to be a girl. Far from it. But I see darling things such as this bracelet, and my heart simply melts. I wear what I feel most comfortable in, but I know you upbringing was ... sheltered.
  • Avatar: Everyone has unique tastes. I don't think that makes you strange at all.
  • Forrest: ...You mean that?
  • Avatar: I do. Besides you really do look fantastic in those clothes. I think it would be a tragedy if you stopped wearing them.
  • Forrest: Avatar...thank you very much. I am comfortable as I am, but I wanted to make sure you weren't troubled.

  • Avatar: Your face suggests otherwise. If you want to talk, I'm here to listen.
  • Forrest: ... Very well, I went into town to do some shopping, as I often do. The clerk at one of my favorite shops discovered I'm a man, and laughed at me. I was having none of it, of course. "I dress as I like," I said. "What of it?"
  • Avatar: Good. You had every right to stand up for yourself in that situation.
  • Forrest: I wholeheartedly agree. But this was a man I've seen many times before. We've even chatted occasionally. I thought I new him, but he turns out to be a mean-spirited ignoramus.
  • Avatar: I see. That does sound disheartening.
  • Forrest: Quite. And I wonder, who is next? How else will the world disappoint me?
  • Avatar: Don't be disappointed - pity the poor world.
  • Forrest: Huh?
  • Avatar: Any world that doesn't appreciate your charms is a fool. The natural response to a fool is to pity their foolishness.
  • Forrest: I'm charming, am I?
  • Avatar: Extremely.
  • Forrest: ...Thank you. That's just the encouragement I needed to stay the course.
  • Avatar: That's the spirit. You look great in those clothes. Anyone who says differently is a dunce or a dastard.
  • Forrest: Goodness, Avatar.
  • Avatar: Hmm?
  • Forrest: You protest so vehemently that I begin to wonder if you have feelings for me.

  • Avatar: It's a good-luck charm, isn't it? Why were you going to toss it?
  • Ignatius: Because I'm a failure.
  • Avatar: What are you talking about?
  • Ignatius: Relying on good-luck charms is the sign of a weak-willed coward. And that's precisely what I am.
  • Avatar: Shut up, Ignatius.

  • Avatar: Well, I'm sorry to hear you're still upset. But if it makes a difference, you appear perfectly fine to me.
  • Ignatius: Thank you for the kind words, but my problem persists. I am afraid every time I step onto the battlefield. What kind of warrior has feelings like this before each and every fight?
  • Avatar: Ignatius, every warrior I've ever known has felt the same way. Including myself. It's normal to be afraid. Fear can keep you alive. Fear can protect your loved ones.
  • Ignatius: Nonsense. A grown man, fondling a good-luck totem? Pathetic. At least I've had the fortitude to dispose of that ridiculous charm.
  • Avatar: Ignatius, you're far from pathetic. You're a hero in my eyes. I'm proud to step on the battlefield with you, because I know you have my back.
  • Ignatius: Do you really mean that, Avatar?
  • Avatar: Of course. That's why I saved this.
  • Ignatius: My charm? I thought I told you to throw it away.
  • Avatar: How could I throw something like this away? It looks old enough to have been in your family for generations.
  • Ignatius: It is true. My father made it for me when I was very young. Thank you, Avatar. I've gained a great deal of confidence today. And I'll be even stronger tomorrow. That I promise.

  • Velouria: Yes. Quite a bit if I may be blunt. *sniff* *sniff*
  • Avatar: Come on - cut it out! It's embarrassing to have you sniffing me like that.
  • Velouria: It's not an unpleasant odor. In any case, did you require something of me?
  • Avatar: Oh, no. I was just wondering what you were doing here.
  • Velouria: Is my being here so odd, it merits your attention?
  • Avatar: Er. I guess you could say that.
  • Velouria: Rest assured, nothing is amiss. I'm merely looking for treasure.
  • Avatar: Treasure?! What kind of treasure?
  • Velouria: Do you not have more important people to be bothering?
  • Avatar: I don't know. Treasure sounds pretty important to me.
  • Velouria: Very well. If you insist. Here is one of my treasures. Take a good, long look, if you must.

  • Avatar: Uh. Thanks. But why did you think it was to my tastes, exactly?
  • Velouria: Because you are a kindred spirit.

  • Velouria: Yes. You are one of the few people to have ever shown any interest in my treasures. If that doesn't make you a kindred spirit, what would?

  • Velouria: What an adorable little box you are. Yes you are! The perfect size for storing an acorn.
  • Avatar: Er, Velouria? I'm glad you like the box, but the real gift is what's inside it.
  • Velouria: Inside it? OK. But this box is pretty great. I don't know how you're going to beat it. Oh! My goodness!
  • Avatar: There we are.
  • Velouria: It's stunning! And so soft. I could spend all day just feeling it. Yes, the fabric they used to line this box is just too silky. You were right, Avatar, the real gift WAS inside!
  • Avatar: There should be something on top of the fabric too...
  • Velouria: Oh, yes, the ring? We can talk about that later. But for now, I just want to enjoy this! Ohohoho! Eheehee!
  • Avatar: Talk about it later?! Velouria! The ring is what I'm giving you. Not the box!
  • Velouria: Really? Maybe your taste in treasure is not as fine as I thought. Why would you give me this?
  • Avatar: Because I want to marry you.
  • Velouria: Come again?
  • Avatar: Velouria, I want us to be together and to build a family together. I promise, if you accept, I will be the best husband I can possibly be.
  • Velouria: You're stranger that I thought, Avatar. Are you sure this is what you want?
  • Avatar: I'm happy to be as strange as it takes for you to say yes. You're the only one for me.
  • Velouria: Oh my. Thank you. I don't know what to say.
  • Avatar: "Yes," maybe?
  • Velouria: All right. Yes! I'll marry you.
  • Avatar: I promise I'll make you the happiest treasure hunter alive.
  • Velouria: Heh... You know... It's so strange...
  • Avatar: What is?
  • Velouria: Just a moment ago, this ring meant nothing to me, but now I can't bear to part with it. To think that something so worthless could become so precious. All because is was a gift from you. Maybe everything will be like that from now on... The whole world turned to one giant treasure now that you're by my side!
  • Avatar: I certainly hope so...because I feel the same way. Will you take my hand, Velouria? There's a world of treasure out there for us to enjoy.
  • Velouria: Yes. Innumerable treasures, all for just us two...
  • Velouria: I knew you were special when I saw how much Daddy respects you. Let's take it easy together for the rest of our lives.

  • Percy: Sure am, Avatar! How else am I gonna be a great knight like Pop someday?
  • Avatar: That's our Percy. Keep it up, kid!
  • Percy: Hey! C'mon! Do ya have to say it like that?
  • Avatar: Like what?
  • Percy: Like I'm some kinda little kid! I'm a man now, you know!
  • Avatar: Haha. Yeah, I guess that's true, huh? OK, Percy. I'm sorry. I meant no offense. But you were saying you wanted to be a great knight like your father, right? You must really like him a lot.
  • Percy: I could like him without wanting to be like him, y'know. What it really is is respect! He's got it so hard, and yet he never gives up no matter what!
  • Avatar: What do you mean?
  • Percy: Well, like yesterday I saw him go through all kinds of things! He was hit by lightning, pooped on by wyverns, and trampled by a horse! And that's not even unusual. It's just sort of below-average. Pop goes through so much every day, and yet I've never seen him lose heart. For him, just getting out of bed must take more courage than most ever have!

  • Avatar: OK, then. What would you like me to do?
  • Percy: Hmmm. I want to practice dodging enemy missiles, so let's see... Ooh! Could you throw that pile of rocks at me? As fast as you can? If you could throw a bunch at the same time, that'd be best!
  • Avatar: What? At the same time?! Are you sure?
  • Percy: Yeah, yeah, I'll be fine! Now let 'em fly!

  • Percy: Heehee! Right? I dodged them all!
  • Avatar: I don't know if you dodged them or if they dodged you.
  • Percy: Huh?
  • Avatar: It looked like they only missed you because of how they bounced off each other. You have some unbelievable luck.
  • Percy: What?! Come on! I dodged them because I train really hard! Not because of luck! You don't have to be so rude, you know.
  • Avatar: I'm sorry. I should chosen my words more carefully. I didn't mean to take away from your accomplishment. I promise.
  • Percy: Heh. OK, fine. I forgive you.

  • Avatar: Er, what?
  • Ophelia: I'm meditating.
  • Avatar: Oh, I see.
  • Ophelia: Can our spirits commune later?
  • Avatar: Sure. I didn't mean to bother you. I only found a gemstone that you dropped. I'll leave it over here.
  • Ophelia: A gemstone? Th-that's one of my most precious pieces of quartz!
  • Avatar: It is? Glad I found it then.
  • Ophelia: This gemstone can only be wielded by the purest of maidens to read the stars. How could I have dropped something so important to my methods?! Thank you, Avatar.
  • Avatar: (I had no idea a speck of quartz could be such a big deal.)
  • Ophelia: Hmm? Say something?
  • Avatar: Uh, no. Nothing at all.
  • Ophelia: Ha! Few alive could know the true value of this gemstone. In fact, only chosen ones know, like my father and I.
  • Avatar: Chosen ones?
  • Ophelia: Exactly. Now if you'll excuse me, I'll get back to soaking up duskiness from the atmosphere.

B Support Edit

  • Avatar: Hello, Ophelia.
  • Ophelia: ......
  • Avatar: Sorry. You're meditating again. I'll come back later.
  • Ophelia: No need. I always have time for you. You might not be a chosen one, but you did reunite me with my mystic quartz!
  • Avatar: Oh, that's right. I almost forgot.
  • Ophelia: And so, my quartz-savior, what can Ophelia Dusk do for you today?
  • Avatar: I found this gemstone in the dirt. It looks a little like quartz. I thought it might be yours too.
  • Ophelia: No, that's not one of mine. But, whoa! It's pretty stuff. Way pretty!
  • Avatar: Uh, hello? Ophelia? Are you there?
  • Ophelia: Why, yes! I am! Why do you ask?
  • Avatar: You usually say things more fancifully than "whoa" and "way pretty."
  • Ophelia: Ah, you noticed. Just a lapse of my powerful vocabulary... That happens sometimes when I'm so overcome by beauty. Now, may I keep this?
  • Avatar: Of course.
  • Ophelia: I must give it an evocative name. Any ideas, Avatar?
  • Avatar: Um, not on the spot, I don't.
  • Ophelia: I know that naming such an exceedingly dazzling gemstone must be hard. Give it a try though. What's the first thing that comes to mind?
  • Avatar: Er, the Pretty Gem?
  • Ophelia: Awful. Zero points. Rejected.
  • Avatar: Huh?!
  • Ophelia: Don't huh me. I should be huh-ing you!
  • Avatar: You...sound different again. Almost like you're two people, Ophelia.
  • Ophelia: If you're not going to give me a good name, the I won't give you the real Ophelia.
  • Avatar: Pretty Gem was that bad? How about you give me a good example?
  • Ophelia: All right, how about the Wakeful Lode? Or...or...or... The Evil Eye of the Marquis? Anything more sensible than the Pretty Gem. I'm sorry to be so judgmental. It must be hard, not being a chosen one.
  • Avatar: Er, yes?
  • Ophelia: All right. You just need more time. Ponder this quartz... Next time we meet, unleash a name that will light the world on fire!

  • Ophelia: Salutations, Avatar! Have you come up with a proper name for that wondrous quartz you found?
  • Avatar: I think so.

  • Avatar: Reckless Reckreck?
  • Ophelia: What?!
  • Avatar: It just popped into my head. I knew it was no good...
  • Ophelia: Are you kidding? Reckless Reckreck is astounding! Well done, Avatar!
  • Avatar: Huh?
  • Ophelia: Last time, your name failed because you forced yourself to make it sound good. This time you went with your gut. Reckless Reckreck - brilliant!
  • Avatar: Oh, well...neat!
  • Ophelia: It is infinitely more than neat. For now I bow to your naming prowess. More than that, I now know that you are a chosen one.
  • Avatar: I'm a chosen one?
  • Ophelia: Without a doubt. We may be separated by blood, but by this...? We are family. Do you think that's too much, too soon? Then if not family, let us call ourselves best friends forever.
  • Avatar: That sounds fine by me. To be honest, even when we were arguing the other day, I thought it was fun.
  • Ophelia: Really?! Awesome! Hmm. How about I fill you in on one of my greatest secrets?
  • Avatar: Are you sure?
  • Ophelia: Yep. Ta-dah! It's this mark on my skin. It appeared right after I joined you all. It's the mark of the chosen ones. At least I think so?
  • Avatar: You're not sure?
  • Ophelia: It has an odd shape. Maybe you have one of these marks too! If you don't...I'll draw one on you.
  • Avatar: That would be nice. I think it's a powerful-looking shape.
  • Ophelia: You do? Then that's another sign that you and I were meant to be friends!

  • Ophelia: Everything. I fear that I'm not really one of the chosen ones.
  • Avatar: That can't be!
  • Ophelia: If I was, I should be able to do the most amazing things. But lately, I feel as if I'm nothing but hot air - not chosen at all.
  • Avatar: But isn't your father one of the chosen ones? It's in your blood!
  • Ophelia: I thought so, but all I really have as proof is this odd mark on my skin. It might just be an ink stain that hasn't gone away yet.
  • Avatar: That is most certainly not a stain. It's a mark. You are a chosen one!
  • Ophelia: How can you say that?
  • Avatar: No one lives as vividly as you. The way you name everything too! Besides, I choose you, which makes you chosen yet again.
  • Ophelia: What do you mean, you choose me?
  • Avatar: That gemstone I gave you... Do you have Reckless Reckreck?
  • Ophelia: It's right here.
  • Avatar: I researched this gemstone. Turns out it's legendary. The giver of Reckless Reckreck and the recipient are bound by fate.
  • Ophelia: By fate?!
  • Avatar: Suddenly, it all made sense - the way I always want to be near you. The legend is referring to us.
  • Ophelia: Oh, Avatar, I had no idea...
  • Avatar: Can I borrow Reckless Reckreck for a while? I want to have it set into a ring.
  • Ophelia: A ring of power?! Clearly we are chosen ones to each other. I was thinking of doing the same thing. Why, when your aura touches mine, I can barely restrain my exaltation!
  • Avatar: I feel the same way. You just put things so much better than I do, Ophelia. But I'll give it a try. Will you walk with me down the dark hall of existence, our auras lighting the way?
  • Ophelia: Yes. If I see your face twist with suffering, I will envelop you in my peace. Just as you did to me this day. Ha! And can I mention...? You spoke powerfully there, Avatar.
  • Avatar: I tried my best, but I'll always be glad to take your lead, chosen one.
  • Ophelia: Fate has chosen us. The moon and the stars bless our union. The constellations celebrate our love. You and I, forever into eternity.

With Soleil Edit

C Support Edit

  • Soleil: *sigh* I have a problem, Lord Avatar. But I'm not sure you'd understand...
  • Avatar: Try me. If nothing else, I can offer another perspective on it.
  • Soleil: OK, here goes. I want to be a warrior. A fearless, take-no-prisoners, sword-slinging tough gal. There's just one small hitch that I haven't gotten past... And it's making what should be smooth sailing into a four-day hurricane at sea.
  • Avatar: This is sounding serious. What's this "hitch" you mentioned?
  • Soleil: OK...don't laugh, but... I lose my mind around cute girls.
  • Avatar: So I've heard. But what's the problem?
  • Soleil: No, I mean, I REALLY lose my mind. When I see a cute girl, I start to sweat. When she gets close, I faint sometimes. I just can't stand how great girls are!
  • Avatar: ...Are you putting me on? Is this some sort of prank? Are people watching this?
  • Soleil: You remember the other day, when I was on my way back to camp?
  • Avatar: Hmm, vaguely. I thought for a moment that you might have taken a blow to the head.
  • Soleil: Yeah, I don't blame you for thinking so, but it had nothing to do with the battle. What happened was...this cute village girl came up to me to thank my troop. That's when I started to feel weak in the knees...
  • Avatar: Oh, was that all?
  • Soleil: No, you don't understand! This is a real problem if I'm going to be a warrior!
  • Avatar: I...I see... Take heart. I'll give it some thought, and hopefully we can come up with a solution.

  • Soleil: OK, the blindfold's on.
  • Avatar: You fastened it tightly? There's no light getting through?
  • Soleil: Nope. I'm totally blind for whatever you had in mind.
  • Avatar: Good. I want to try a visualization exercise with you. I want you to picture me not as I am, but as I might look if I was a woman.
  • Soleil: ... Hello, gorgeous,
  • Avatar: Y-you've got the idea, it seems... What we'll do is, I'll play the role of a girl, and you try to keep it together around me.
  • Soleil: OK! This should be fun. Though it's harder to fantas- I mean, imagine you as a girl when you're talking. Maybe try a higher pitch?
  • Avatar: Ah, good point. OK... Oh, Soleil...!
  • Soleil: *gasp* Th-there it is...that tingly feeling... That familiar rush of blood to the head...
  • Avatar: You saved us all! You were so amazing and strong when you beat up the bad guys!
  • Soleil: Aaaaaaaaah!
  • Avatar: Was that more or less right? I was trying to get into the village girl mind-set.
  • Soleil: I-it was scary close. I almost fainted.
  • Avatar: Good! This should help to build up a tolerance. Shall we go once more?
  • Soleil: Yeah, I'm game. But maybe I could take a short break before we get back at it?
  • Avatar: Of course! Take all the time you need.
  • Soleil: Thanks! Because so long as I've got this blindfold on and we're visualizing... I'm gonna daydream about what the rest of the guys would look like as girls! Mmm, Xandra....you're so much prettier when you smile...
  • Avatar: Uh, Soleil...! Soleil! That's not the point of the exercise!

A Support Edit

  • Avatar: Ah, hello, Soleil. Have our visualization sessions helped with your problem?
  • Soleil: Not much, I'm afraid. After the last battle, I went to a nearby village. And wham, I got mobbed by a pack of grateful village girls. Just the kind I like... I blacked out, and when I came to, things had taken a turn for the worse. They were waiting on me hand and foot! I hate to say it, but I think we've been wasting our time.
  • Avatar: I see...
  • Soleil: Sorry, Avatar.
  • Avatar: It's all right. It might be a while before you can keep your composure around girls. Don't be upset because the problem isn't solved after a few days.
  • Soleil: That's true. I shouldn't let it get me down. When I was little, I was a real crybaby. But then my father said to me... "Laugh it off, Soleil. The trick is to smile until you have something to smile about." Ever since, no matter how I feel inside, I put on a happy face. Which is what I ought to be doing right now!
  • Avatar: Soleil...you don't need to force a smile.
  • Soleil: It's not forced, though! Sure, we haven't made any headway on my problem. But you're trying to help. That counts for a lot. So don't think this smile of mine is fake. I mean it!
  • Avatar: In that case, I'll smile for you too. You're an important member of the team. I want to help with any problem of yours.
  • Soleil: You mean that? Because I'd be up for some more of that visualization stuff. I love it when you pretend to be a girl, heehee. Though nowadays, I have fun with you no matter what we're doing.

  • Soleil: Wow, no kidding. It's so nice!
  • Avatar: Just like you.
  • Soleil: Hm?
  • Avatar: Your smile is radiant as the sun. I'd bask in its warmth forever if I could...
  • Soleil: Uh... Are you feeling OK, Avatar? Did you take a hit to the head or something?
  • Avatar: N-no! I'm being totally serious!
  • Soleil: For real...? Gosh. I wasn't expecting this today.
  • Avatar: I understand if you're not interested, since I'm only a woman in your imagination.
  • Soleil: Oh, that's not such a problem. I like men just fine. I think I could even get to like one for real if I knew him well enough.
  • Avatar: That's great! So then -
  • Soleil: But we're not there yet. The image I had of you during our sessions... It was cute, and lovely, but it's not you.
  • Avatar: Is that a problem?
  • Soleil: Well...yes and no. The girl you in my imagination was cute and adorable. And if you just wanted to be silly and have fun, I'd close my eyes and imagine her. But it sounds like you're talking about something serious. Something real. So that version of you, cute as she is, won't work anymore.
  • Avatar: Oh. Then where does that leave us?
  • Soleil: We'll just have to start over! Instead of hanging out with you pretending to be other people...we'll hang out and I can get to know who you really are instead. I'm confident we can get there. I mean, I already like you a lot!
  • Avatar: Enough to make up for me not being a cute girl?
  • Soleil: Hey, cute's cute!
  • Avatar: That's high praise, coming from you.
  • Soleil: Haha...to be honest...
  • Soleil: I love you more than all the cute things in the world combined! This is kind of embarrassing, but...stay with me forever promise?

  • Nina: You heard me? I mean...why were you spying on me?!
  • Avatar: What? No, I was also looking for something I lost in here!
  • Nina: Oh, OK. Well, how much did you overhear? Because, you know, it wasn't anything that weird. I was just playing puppets!
  • Avatar: Playing puppets?
  • Nina: Sure! Like I said, totally normal. See this gauntlet and this helmet? The gauntlet is a swarthy young gentleman named Horst. And the helmet doesn't have a name, but it's very open minded. So I was just imagining the sort of drama there would be if these two were lovers.
  • Avatar: I see.
  • Nina: Right? Of course, Horst really loves the helmet, but he isn't good at expressing it. Can't you just feel the chemistry between these two? Major sparks!
  • Avatar: Um, Nina?
  • Nina: Oh, you're still here?
  • Avatar: Um, yes.

  • Nina: Don't play dumb. You must think I'm such a disgusting weirdo with a weirdo hobby.
  • Avatar: Weirdo hobby? oh, you mean the gauntlet and helmet puppets.
  • Nina: Exactly. But what am I supposed to do? I'd rather manipulate real people, but...for SOME reason, that's frowned upon. You think this is funny, right? Go ahead---laugh away...
  • Avatar: Actually, Nina, I find it oddly charming. Your imagination is so vivid---giving these inanimate objects such interesting lives. Thanks to you, Horst the helmet and, uh, Ms. Gauntlet will be so happy.
  • Nina: First of all, Horst is the gauntlet. And who said anything about "Ms." anything?
  • Avatar: I-I'm sorry?
  • Nina: Well, are you or aren't you? Are you asking me?
  • Avatar: I am sorry that I misremembered Horst. But, like I said, I don't find you hobby strange. Well, I mean, it IS strange, but that's what make it so interesting. I think our differences should be celebrated, not mocked.
  • Nina: So...you're not going to laugh at me?
  • Avatar: Of course not.
  • Nina: Well then...what would you think about playing this sort of game together?
  • Avatar: Oh, I'm not sure my imagination is up to the task.
  • Nina: Don't be silly! I'll give you lessons in pushing your imagination to the limits. Let's see... We should probably start simple. What can we use around here? Ah, look over that! A spoon and a vase. Begin by pretending they're in love.
  • Avatar: That's easy for you to say.
  • Nina: Well, you have to give them personalities. The vase seems like a fragile soul. And it's been in love with the spoon for a long time. Oh, when will the spoon wake up? Heehee!

  • Avatar: I agree! I don't know if your puppeteering has influenced me, but...I've discovered a newfound appreciation for all kinds of material objects.
  • Nina: Aw, thanks for playing along with my silly hobby. Most people would just laugh. i'm glad you accept all my little quirks! Because I take them quite seriously.
  • Avatar: No need to thank me. It was just good fun.
  • Nina: There's more, though. My puppet fantasies do get a bit more complex. On the surface, it's your average gauntlet-helmet romance. But what if I told you that both of them were boys? Would you be scandalized?
  • Avatar: Hmm. Mr. Gauntlet and Mr. Helmet, eh? Well, I don't have a problem with that. It's still a love story, right?
  • Nina: Yes...a clandestine love story. Those are the kinds that get my heart racing.
  • Avatar: Well...I guess that just goes to show how imaginative you really are.
  • Nina: Do you really mean tha, Avatar? I was worried you'd want to stop daydreaming with me.

  • Avatar: Er, yes, in a manner of speaking.
  • Nina: Yes! I can picture it. The ring is an earnest man who has lived his whole life in solitude. Nobody gets him. He's alone in the world. Each lonely morning leads to another lonely night...and breaks his heart ever so slowly. But then, one bright day, destiny takes him by the hand...and introduces him to...this wicker basket!
  • Avatar: That's...surprisingly accurate. But no, I had something slightly different in mind. I want to introduce the ring to your ring finger, Nina.
  • Nina: My ring finger? That doesn't really make sense.
  • Avatar: Nina...the young man you described... He's asking for your hand in marriage.
  • Nina: Are you serious? You want to marry ME?
  • Avatar: Yes. But perhaps I should offer a more formal proposal. Nina, would you do me the honor of giving me your hand in marriage?
  • Nina: Are you sure, Avatar? You know I'm not exactly...normal. I mean it. i'm giving you an out here. Just take a moment to rethink what you're doing. I won't be offended if you change your mind.

  • Avatar: "Good fortunes"?
  • Anna: Yes. The more of these you have, the more good things will be drawn to you.
  • Avatar: Hrm. If that's true, it certainly would be amazing!
  • Anna: So...have I piqued your interest? Would you like one?
  • Avatar: You know what? Sure, I'll buy one.
  • Anna: Heehee, thanks for the sale. Good things are coming your way!

B Support Edit

  • Anna: Hey, Avatar. I just got some nice weapons in. Piping hot, fresh off the forge.
  • Avatar: Hrm? Like I mentioned the other day, I'm all set for weapons right now.
  • Anna: The other day? ...I don't know what you're talking about, but if you're set, you don't need any. How about some armor instead?
  • Avatar: I... No, I'm fine in the armor department too. I'm having the most intense feeling of déjà vu...
  • Anna: Huh? I definitely didn't ask you... ...Oh, I just remembered! I also have something amazing in stock. Just look at this flower!
  • Avatar: That flower...
  • Anna: It might seem like your average, ordinary flower, but it's not! Its name...
  • Avatar: I know. It means "good fortunes," and good tings will happen to me if I have a bunch, right?
  • Anna: That's it exac---wait, how...?
  • Avatar: You know how! You told me the other day. I even bought this one from you!
  • Anna: ... ...Ah, I see. I know exactly what happened. Avatar, you met one of my sisters.
  • Avatar: One of your sisters?
  • Anna: This might come as a shock to you, but... My sisters and I... We all look the same, have the same name, and do the same job. There are many, many Annas, just like me, all over the world.
  • Avatar: What?! Wait...wait just a second. How is that even...
  • Anna: Don't worry; I'm the Anna you saved from the brigands. The rest is up to you to believe or not.
  • Avatar: No, I believe you... Now that you mention it, I feel like I've seen you in many different places before...
  • Anna: I'm sure you have. Now then, back to business! Would you like to buy a flower from me? You haven't bought one from me yet, after all.
  • Avatar: ...I suppose you're right. Sure, I'll buy one.
  • Anna: Heehee, thanks for the sale. Good things are coming your way!

A Support Edit

  • Anna: Avatar, thanks for taking time to talk with me today.
  • Avatar: Of course. What's on your mind?
  • Anna: ...I need to apologize. I wasn't completely honest the other day.
  • Avatar: Huh?
  • Anna: I do have many sisters that look like me and share the same name, but... the Annas who sold you the first flower and the second flower...were both me.
  • Avatar: ... You're making my head hurt.
  • Anna: I'm really sorry, Avatar. When it comes to making money, some of my ideas can get a little...shady.
  • Avatar: Shady how?
  • Anna: You see, I thought...if I pretended to be my sisters, I could keep selling you flowers. ...I'm sorry. I'm really truly sorry.
  • Avatar: Why did you decide to come clean? You could have kept quiet about all this.
  • Anna: A merchant who has to lie to her friends to make a profit isn't worthy of her job. I'll return your money, and I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me.
  • Avatar: You can keep the money. There's nothing that needs forgiveness. I think it was an honest sale.
  • Anna: What?
  • Avatar: I liked the flowers you offered me, so I paid you fairly for them. I didn't buy the second flower just because I thought you were a different Anna.
  • Anna: Hmm... I suppose if you look at it that way...
  • Avatar: Besides, aren't good things supposed to happen if I collect more of them? Thanks to those sales, I got to see a softer side of you. I consider myself lucky.
  • Anna: Really? You're kind to say that, but... now I'm starting to worry you might be a little...too kind...for your own good. Avatar. I'm going to share some tricks to always avoid making bad deals.
  • Avatar: Really? You'd do that for me? That's great!
  • Anna: Annnd that's step one: don't be so quick to trust people! Oh well. Consider this a special one-time offer. I'll teach you all you need to know.

S Support Edit

  • Anna: Avatar, I received a letter that said "good fortunes." Was it from you?
  • Avatar: Hello, Anna. Take a look over there.
  • Anna: These...are the same type of flower that I sold you. You've filled an entire planter with them? It's gorgeous.
  • Avatar: Yep. I bought a few more after the two from you and then learned how to grow them. Look---I was even able to make a bouquet.
  • Anna: It's so pretty.
  • Avatar: I'd like for you to have it, since you taught me the meaning behind these flowers.
  • Anna: Really? You're sure? Oh, thank you, thank you!
  • Avatar: ...
  • Anna: Avatar, what's wrong?
  • Avatar: Well, I mentioned the meaning behind these flowers...
  • Anna: That having a lot of them will draw good things to you!
  • Avatar: Exactly, and look at all the flowers I've got. I'm going to need all of the positive energy they can attract today. Ehem. Anna, will you marry me?
  • Anna: Hmmmmm.
  • Avatar: Is...is that a no?
  • Anna: ... Avatar.
  • Avatar: Y-yes?
  • Anna: You are brilliant. I love you.
  • Avatar: Huh?
  • Anna: Rings are so old fashioned. We can make flowers the only proper way to propose. We'll...gently...remind people that it takes a lot of flowers to really make things work! People will start competing with each other over who proposed with a larger bouquet. Once we get our flower garden growing, we'll start a trend that'll rake in the dough! Avatar, I accept your proposal. Let's become the world's best merchants!
  • Avatar: Thank you...I think? Are we still talking about the same thing?
  • Anna: We'll need to have lots of children, too. They'll all be merchants, of course. Working together, we'll really make bank!
  • Avatar: OK...
  • Anna: With that settled, we'll need to set a date for the wedding next... No, wait! I need to contact all of my sisters first. But what is the least expensive way to contact that many people...
  • Avatar: This is going to be an interesting ceremony...
