“These Crimean refugees are no easy meat. And there are more of them than I expected. Hmm...”

Rikard: I am Rikard! Your corpse will be the sustenance that feeds my hunger for fame!
Rikard: Are you the dog of a general who led his forces to victory over General Petrine? Speak your name!
Rikard: Ike! My battle with you will send my own name soaring to new heights to glory! Now... Die!
Rikard: Killing one who cannot fight will gain me no glory... But you must die nonetheless!
“No matter one's proven deeds, ...one defeat unmans us all... And so..it ends...”
- A portion of Rikard's death quote is also said by Jaffar as his death quote. Jaffar's death quote, "And so it ends", differs only from Rikard's last sentence due to the presence of ellipses in Rikard's final words.
