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.

S Support Edit

  • Xander: Hello, Avatar. Thank you for joining me here today.
  • Avatar: Sure thing. Your note said it was urgent... Is everything OK?
  • Xander: ...
  • Xander: I need to ask you something. What do you think of me?
  • Avatar: I'm not sure what you mean...
  • Xander: I know this is out of the blue, but I need to know. Please answer truthfully.
  • Avatar: OK... If it means that much to you.
  • Avatar: Well, to me you're someone I admire. Someone strong and wise and noble. You're the rock of the family, someone we can all depend on and look up to. You taught me about courage and about the sword, as well as about right and wrong. I was so sad when I first found out we aren't truly brother and sister... I was always proud to be the little sister of the finest prince there ever was.
  • Xander: Thank you, Avatar. I am honored by your kind words. Though, to be honest, I feel the exact opposite in one respect.
  • Avatar: Oh?
  • Xander: I am overjoyed that we are not brother and sister.
  • Avatar: Y-you are? But why?! I guess I wasn't a very good sister...
  • Xander: Please don't misunderstand me. I meant that in the best way possible.
  • Avatar: What way is that?
  • Xander: You said just now that I taught you about courage and about the sword. But... I wish to teach you about much more than that. I wish to teach you about love. That's why I bought this for you.
  • Avatar: Is that a r-ring?!
  • Xander: Dearest, Avatar. You are the most precious person in the world to me. Would you do me the honor of being my wife?
  • Avatar: Your wife?! Xander, are you sure? What will the others say...
  • Xander: Let them say what they will. I wish to protect you for the rest of my days. I don't see you as a sibling any longer, but as a woman... One who I adore. Please say you'll stay by my side, now and forever.
  • Avatar: Xander... Of course I'll marry you. I'm so happy. I don't know what to say! But everyone will be so surprised. They may even object at first...
  • Xander: Worry not. In the end, I'm certain everyone will understand. After all, our marriages won't only benefit our future happiness... I believe it will also have a positive effect on our beloved kingdom.
  • Avatar: You're right, as ever. Besides, what matters most is that we'll finally be together.
  • Xander: I can't wait to spend my life with you, little princess. I have so much to tell you... You were cooped up so long, I wish to show you the whole world.
  • Avatar: I can't wait. Thank you, dear Xander.
  • Xander: I love you, truly. I've been meaning to tell you for so long... You are my precious wife now. It is my honor and duty to keep you safe, at all costs.

With AzuraEdit

C Support Edit

  • Xander: Hello, Azura. I'm glad I found you here.
  • Azura: Oh? May I help you?
  • Xander: Are you feeling all right? You've been looking a little down lately.
  • Azura: There's no need to be worried about me. I'm fine....Did you need something?
  • Xander: Actually, yes. Avatar and I are holding a meeting to review our military strategy. I'd appreciate if you would attend.
  • Azura: Military strategy? Oh, my. I know nothing about that.
  • Xander: You know more than you realize. You're intimately familiar with both kingdoms. I was hoping you would attend as a mediator. I can count on you to be fair.
  • Azura: Do you really think that's a good idea? I'm not sure I would be of much help.
  • Xander: I beg to differ. Please, Azura. Do it for the good of all.
  • Azura: Hmm... Who else will be there?
  • Xander: Ah, is this about how certain Nohrians may treat you? If so, worry not. No one would dare speak a word against you in my presence. Please, Azura. May I count you in?
  • Azura: Well, it seems useless to argue when I doubt you'll take no for an answer.
  • Xander: Right you are. Well then, let us be off.

B Support Edit

  • Azura: Hello, Xander.
  • Xander: There it is again, that doleful look. Please, Azura. Tell me what's troubling you.
  • Azura: I wish you would stop worrying about me. I promise I'm fine. By the way, do you think the meeting went well?
  • Xander: It did, thanks to you. We were lucky to have you as our mediator.
  • Azura: I don't know about that. You do a fine job of leading everyone without my help.
  • Xander: A strong leader needs strong advisors.
  • Azura: Oh, stop. There's no need to flatter me, Xander. I hardly said two words. I was busy stuffing my face with all of that food. What a feast!
  • Xander: You did seem to be enjoying yourself. But still... In between those enormous bites, you said some profound things—just as I expected. Azura, it's quite possible that you could change the course of this whole war.
  • Azura: What do you mean?
  • Xander: I'd like you to attend these meetings regularly. You have a unique perspective. Next time, we'll be discussing my father, and I could really use you by my side.
  • Azura: I don't know, Xander. I still have a lot of bad memories from my time in Nohr.
  • Xander: it pains me so to hear you say that. I hope you'll reconsider... Did I mention dinner will be served?
  • Azura: You're going to drag me there whether I like it or not, aren't you? Fine then. ...So are we going to have those warm, buttered rolls again? Just... curious.

A support Edit

  • Azura: Hmm-hmmm... Laa-la-laa... ♪
  • Azura: Oh! Hello, Xander.
  • Xander: Sorry, I didn't mean to disturb you. You sounded so lovely. Have I heard that song before?
  • Azura: No, I don't think so.
  • Xander: Ah. Well, in any case, I came here to invite you to our next meeting.
  • Azura: Xander, you can drop the act now. I can see right through you.
  • Xander: What do you mean?
  • Azura: You're obviously inviting me to these meetings to give me a distraction! You don't want me dwelling on my past or thinking about my childhood tormentors. You figured if I just went to the meetings, my feelings about Nohr might change.
  • Xander: Azura, you're wrong. I invited you because you're important to our cause.
  • Azura: No. It's time you stopped shielding me from the truth.
  • Xander: The only thing I'd like to shield you from is yourself. You're overthinking this. I need you there because I know I can count on you to be fair. I only want what's best for our kingdoms. We must work together to attain peace.
  • Azura: You can pretend it's for peace all you want. Of course, we all want that. ...But I know you're trying to look after me. Please, Xander, sit down for a moment.
  • Xander: Huh?
  • Azura: Go on. It's my turn to look after you. I want to sing you the song I was practicing. It's a song of gratitude. I want you to know how much I appreciate your kindness.
  • Xander: Me?! Sit idly? I'm not sure about this...
  • Azura: Haha, just trust me. Close your eyes and listen... ♪

S Support Edit

  • Azura: Xander? I'm told you've been looking for me.
  • Xander: I have. Has anyone told you how much happier you look these days?
  • Azura: Actually, yes. It's all thanks to you.
  • Xander: That's kind of you to say. So, I suppose I'll get right to it... *ahem* I would like to ask you a favor. Azura...will you come back?
  • Azura: What do you mean?
  • Xander: Please, come back with me---to Nohr. I'd like you to return home with us.
  • Azura: Xander, that's a big request! I do love being with you...But my time in Nohr was filled with pain. I'm not sure I'm ready to face all that.
  • Xander: Azura, I'm not done yet. It is my hope that you'll return as my future queen.
  • Azura: I'm sorry... Are you asking me to...?
  • Xander: I am. I want nothing more than your hand in marriage. Please accept this ring as a token of my love.
  • Azura: Oh, Xander. My heart wants to say yes, but I'm terrified. What about King Garon?
  • Xander: Everyone in my family welcomes you home. You know my father is another matter. But I'll be by your side. Let's do our best to create new memories---happy ones!
  • Azura: Will you sit down for a moment?
  • Xander: Now?!
  • Azura: Please, Xander. Just listen to this song I'm about to sing, and you'll have my answer. Let me sing this song for you...with love. ♪
  • Xander: Ah... I have never heard a sweeter sound. Thank you, my love.

With Felicia Edit

C Support Edit

  • Felicia: All right. The tea leaves, the water, and the cups are all on the tray...Now I juuuuust need to watch my feet and walk straight forward. OK, here I go! One step... Two steps...You can do this, Felicia... Three steps... Four steps... Come on... If I just keep it up, I might even get all the way across the—KYAAAAAHHHHHHH!
  • (Crashing sounds)
  • Felicia: Ow, ow, ow, ow, ow!
  • Xander: Felicia! Are you hurt?
  • Felicia: Lord Xander?! What are you doing here? This is my secret practice spot!
  • Xander: Practice spot? Sorry, I just happened to be passing by. What is it you're practicing here?
  • Felicia: Um, carrying tea.
  • Xander: Oh? Hm, it must be more difficult then I'd imagined. May I ask why you were looking at your feet?
  • Felicia: I thought that if I walked while looking at the ground, then I wouldn't trip and fall. But when i do that I just crash into the things I can't see in front of me.
  • Xander: Ah, so you end up spilling the tea anyway.
  • Felicia: Exactly.
  • Xander: Heh. What an intriguing person you are.
  • Felicia: H-hey! Please don't laugh!
  • Xander: *ahem* Yes, of course. I apologize. Well, good day, Felicia. Good luck with your training.

B Support Edit

  • Felicia: Ugh. That's it! I give up! I'm hopeless at all of this tea stuff. I'm going to try my hand at something new. Something like...knitting! Yes, I bet knitting will be fun. Flora always made it look so easy. Hm, let's see. So I just take the ball of yarn and unravel the thread...*spin spin spin* Wait, this can't be right. Maybe if I--*spin spin spin* Oh. *wiggle* Oh dear. *wiggle wiggle* I can't seem to move my arms.
  • (Screen transition)
  • Felicia: Hello? Hellooo?! Someone! Anyone! Help meeeee!
  • Xander: Felicia! Are you all right? By the gods, you're all wrapped up in yarn!
  • Felicia: Lord Xander... Just passing by again, I suppose?
  • Xander: Yes, and lucky that I was, it seems. Do you require assistance?
  • Felicia*: Well...yes. Would you please unwind all this yarn for me?
  • Xander: Yes, of course. Hold still for a moment. Hm...Felicia... How did you manage to bind yourself up like this? I don't think most prisoners are kept in bondage as secure as this mess.
  • Felicia: I'm sorry...Wait a second. I'm going to try to move.
  • Xander: Wait! Don't move!
  • Felicia: Huh?!
  • Xander: If you move, you'll wind up even more entangled than before.
  • Felicia: Oh, I suppose you're right. I'm sorry.
  • Xander: It's OK. I'll keep at it until I've gotten you out of there.
  • Felicia: My deepest apologies, Your Highness. This task does not befit a prince of Nohr...
  • Xander: It's no trouble. Just don't move, OK? Let's see... This end goes through here, so this on should loop around like so...

A Support Edit

  • Felicia: All right. Today I'm going to practice cooking! Wait! Lord Xander?! What are you doing here?!
  • Xander: Ah. It appears I've already been spotted.
  • Felicia: What do you mean you've been spotted? What are you doing over there?
  • Xander: I suppose I have no choice but to tell you the truth. I was watching you practice.
  • Felicia: What? Why?
  • Xander: I find it...soothing.
  • Felicia: Soothing? What's that supposed to mean?
  • Xander: You always look like you're having fun, even when you make a mistake.
  • Felicia: I don't know if I'd call it "fun". There's a lot of pain involved. I'm pretty clumsy. But even if I weren't, why would it be soothing for you to watch me?
  • Xander: The title "Lord Xander, Crown Prince of Nohr" follows me everywhere. Even when I'm alone, I cannot shed the mantle. Not truly. But when I watch you, here, in your own little world, I forget myself. Maybe you're not having fun, but you aren't burdened by the fate of the kingdom. And it does a crown prince good to see some levity now and then. You're just concerned with being the best maid you can be. As I said, it's soothing.
  • Felicia: Hm...Would you like to practice with me, Lord Xander?
  • Xander: Practice...being a maid?
  • Felicia: Precisely!
  • Xander: For what purpose?
  • Felicia: I think it would be even more soothing for you to do this stuff yourself! If you practice something long enough, you'll get completely absorbed in it. And if it's something new to you, you'll forget yourself all the quicker!
  • Xander: I see... Very well. I consent.
  • Felicia: Great! Let's begin! Would you please pour some water into this pot over here?
  • Xander: Like so?
  • Felicia: Yes, but be careful! I always spill it at this part...Phew, well done. OK, now to chop some vegetables...

S Support Edit

  • Felicia: Lord Xander! You summoned me?
  • Xander: Yes, I did. Please, be at ease, Felicia. I did not call you here to reprimand you. I just wanted to thank you for teaching me what it is like to be a maid. It was an experience I will never forget.
  • Felicia: I'm glad you found it rewarding, milord. If you ever want to escape yourself again, I'd be happy to accommodate you. In fact, we could go practice our tea walks right now, if you'd like!
  • Xander: No, thank you. Today there is something else I wish to ask of you. Something very important.
  • Felicia: something important? In that case, perhaps it would be better if we were to call on some of the others. I'm...a little forgetful. And I have trouble keeping up with things.
  • Xander: No, it would be difficult with others around. It's best this way, trust me.
  • Felicia: Yes, milord. As you wish.
  • Xander: Felicia... I want you to have this.
  • Felicia: W-wait! Isn't that...?
  • Xander: Yes. It's a wedding ring.
  • Felicia: But...why would you give this to me, milord? Should I clean it for you? Oh, unless... Unless you're asking... ?! Is this for me? Are you sure you didn't mean to give this to someone else?
  • Xander: I am quite sure. When you get to be my age, all anyone talks about is marriage. But I always worried, should I marry, I'd be unable to make time for my wife. And even if I could, I didn't know if it would be more than just another royal obligation. But since I've grown so close to you... those fears have disappeared. I know that I will never have trouble making time for you, as you are ever on my mind. Felicia... Will you marry me?
  • Felicia: Yes! Yes, of course!
  • Xander: Thank you, Felicia. I feel as though you have lit a fire in my heart. And I ask that you, as my queen, bring this same fire to all the people of Nohr. Together, we will inspire them to rise anew from the ashes of the past!
  • Felicia: Y-yes, sir! I think I can do that! Probably!

With Kaze Edit

C Support Edit

  • Kaze: Hei! Ha! Hya!
  • Xander: Is that you, Kaze?
  • Kaze: Yes, Prince Xander. I apologize for not seeing you sooner. I was training.
  • Xander: You need never apologize for training, as doing so benefits us all. I admire your dedication.
  • Kaze: Thank you, milord. Heh. It's a funny thing, fighting at your side. When we first met, I never would have dreamed it possible.
  • Xander: I feel the same. Fate is a tempest that leads us down the most unexpected of paths.
  • Kaze: Too true. Say, do you remember our first meeting? When I was captured and taken to Nohr... I was prepared to die, right in front of you, and expected it fully. And yet...I live on, somehow. I am very thankful for that.
  • Xander: You do. And it is all thanks to Avatar and Leo. If you wish to express your gratitude, you ought to tell them.
  • Kaze: Perhaps. But you cooperated with them as well. You did not have to do even that. It may have meant your life, after all. You deserve my gratitude as well.
  • Xander: It was what Avatar desired. And even as your enemy, I knew it would have been a waste.
  • Kaze: A waste?
  • Xander: Yes. I watched you fight, remember? You moved gracefully, even when wounded. I felt that if you had joined our army, you would have been a tremendous asset. To murder you on the palace floor like a dog would have been...dishonorable.
  • Kaze: It is a great honor to be held in such esteem by one of your position. I thank you very much for the compliment.
  • Xander: There is still much we could learn from each other, I think. I believe it would be beneficial for us to fight side by side on the battlefield. Is this agreeable to you?
  • Kaze: Of course. I look forward to it, Prince Xander.
  • Xander: As do I.

B Support Edit

  • Xander: Kaze. Would you be willing to fight me?
  • Kaze: You...want me to fight you?
  • Xander: Yes. I would like to cross blades with you, see how you handle yourself in a duel. What do you say?
  • Kaze: I see... Understood. I would be happy to oblige you.
  • Xander: I must warn you that I will not hold back. Come at me with everything you've got!
  • Kaze: Very well.
  • Xander: Hm?!
  • Kaze: Prince Xander? Is something wrong?
  • Xander: I apologize. I proposed the battle, yet I lost my focus as we started.
  • Kaze: Think nothing of it, milord. May I ask what caught your attention?
  • Xander: Your eyes... Something in your expression is different than when we last fought.
  • Kaze: Is that so? Perhaps it is a difference in my resolution.
  • Xander: Oh?
  • Kaze: Yes. Before, I fought only for my country. For duty. But that has changed since I met Lord/Lady Avatar. I now fight for my companions, regardless of what kingdom they call home. I have found it is easier to give my life for people than to give it for duty.
  • Xander: I see. I imagine that resolve of yours will allow you to achieve incredible things.
  • Kaze: Prince Xander...
  • Xander: I am honored to have the opportunity to spar with someone like you. Now, let's give this fight another shot.
  • Kaze: Very well. Here I come!
  • Xander: Hya!

A Support Edit

  • Xander: Hello, Kaze. Thank you for our sparring session the other day.
  • Kaze: The pleasure was all mine. Your skill with a blade is unparalleled.
  • Xander: I'm not so sure. It's rare that a sparring session ends in a draw for me.
  • Kaze: I am sure I was just fortunate. I look forward to our next battle.
  • Xander: As do I. I learned much from watching you fight.
  • Kaze: Oh?
  • Xander: Yes. I try to maintain proper determination whenever I enter the battlefield. But seeing the unwavering focus in your eyes caught me off guard. It made me realize that, somewhere in my own heart, I must still harbor doubt.
  • Kaze: Doubt dwells in the hearts of all men, Prince Xander. But for what it's worth, I believe you have the strength to overcome it.
  • Xander: Wise words, my friend. All I can do is continue striving to better myself. Doubt is no excuse not to trust the path I believe in and push forward. It is because of you I was able to reconfirm these thoughts. Thank you, Kaze.
  • Kaze: I am humbled to hear you say that.
  • Xander: I thank the gods we were given this chance to get to know one another. Even if we must part ways one day, I will always treasure our friendship.
  • Kaze: As will I. It has been an honor to fight alongside you. May we continue to do so for a long time to come.
  • Xander: Agreed. I'm counting on you, Kaze.
  • Kaze: The feeling is reciprocal, milord.

With Mozu Edit

C Support Edit

  • Mozu: ...
  • Xander: Mozu.
  • Mozu: P-Prince Xander?
  • Xander: What are you doing, eating here all by yourself? You should join the others. I'm sure they'd be happy to have you.
  • Mozu: No, thank you. That's OK... Um...could you please go away now, milord?
  • Xander: Hm? Have I done something to offend you?
  • Mozu: No. You're just...scary.
  • Xander: Scary? In what way?
  • Mozu: Just...your whole face...thing.
  • Xander: My face? I see. My apologies. I'll take my leave of you now.
  • Mozu: Oh, tarnation. I think I just insulted the prince... My head's gonna roll for this, I just know it...

B Support Edit

  • Mozu: Lord Xander? I'm awful sorry about what I said before. You didn't do anything wrong. I shouldn't have asked you to leave like that. Or said that stuff about your face...
  • Xander: Fret not. It's not this first time that someone has found me intimidating. Unfortunately, that seems to be the effect I have on most.
  • Mozu: But...
  • Xander: It's fine. I'm just sorry that I scared you. You've been through so much...I hate the idea that I have added to your suffering, even in so small a way.
  • Mozu: No, Lord Xander. I'm the one who was wrong---
  • Xander: No. It was my fault, and I must correct it. There must be some way for me to appear less intimidating. Now, let us talk more of this.
  • Mozu: Yes, milord...Um... Milord?
  • Xander: Yes?
  • Mozu: You remember that I grew up in a little village, right? We were all like one big family... Everyone knew everyone else. Nobody locked their doors or nothing. You could come and go anywhere you pleased.
  • Xander: Yes, I know. It sounds like it was a wonderful place.
  • Mozu: It was. I hate that it's gone...but maybe it doesn't have to be. Not entirely. Well...I want this army to feel the same, you know? Like we're all family. So...would it be alright if I thought of you as one of my village folks, Prince Xander? No one in my village would have argued about who was at fault. And nobody was scared by no one else. How does that sound?
  • Xander: It sounds like a wonderful idea to me. I'd be honored to be a part of your village. Thank you, Mozu.
  • Mozu: Thank you, milord!

A Support Edit

  • Xander: Mozu, I— Ah, my apologies. I didn't realize you were busy.
  • Mozu: I'm awful sorry, but it might be best if you came back in a bit. I've got a ton of cooking to do and not nearly enough time.
  • Xander: Oh? Why all the cooking?
  • Mozu: Well, seems to be a lot of people wanting to visit me lately. I've got to admit, I'm right flattered, but it's so much work! After all, a person can't have guests and send them off with empty bellies, can they?
  • Xander: I see. But you ARE happy to be seeing so much of everyone, correct?
  • Mozu: Oh, yes! I love it. Everyone's really opened up. I reckon soon this place will be just like my old village in a lot of ways. But why do you look so happy, milord?
  • Xander: Hm? I look happy? What do you mean?
  • Mozu: You're always wrinkling your forehead and frowning. And now you're doing neither! You even got some color on your cheeks! I don't think I've ever seen that before... Wait... Is all this...your doing?
  • Xander: Hm?
  • Mozu: Did you ask everyone to come see me after I told you about my village? ...You did, didn't you?
  • Xander: That's preposterous. Why would I do such a thing?
  • Mozu: C'mon! Admit it! I thought it was odd that everyone wanted to see me all at once.
  • Xander: It is odd, but I really wouldn't know anything about it.
  • Mozu: Then what's with that smile of yours? Explain yourself!
  • Xander: I'm not smiling. I'm just frowning less intensely.
  • Mozu: Ugh! Fine, have it your way. You know, I thought the crown prince of Nohr would be real stuck up and scary. But I guess I was wrong. He's a big ol' softie! And I'm lucky to know him.
  • Xander: No, I keep telling you, I didn't do a thing. You've got the wrong idea entirely.
  • Mozu: How long are you gonna keep that act up? Just admit it so I can thank you already!

S Support Edit

  • Mozu: Lord Xander! I've got a present for you.
  • Xander: Mozu, you really didn't have to—
  • Mozu: I owed you one! So I made you as much food as I thought you could eat. Here, try this first! It's a special soup my ma used to make.
  • Xander: Well, it would not become a prince to turn down such a fine gift. I don't think I've ever seen food like this before. *munch munch munch* This is delicious! There's a simple warmth to these dishes that I find...comforting. Thank you, Mozu.
  • Mozu: I'm glad you feel that way. This food is very important to me. I feel like, in a way, my village lives on through these dishes.
  • Xander: Mmmm. Truly incredible. I can't stop eating!
  • Mozu: Teehee. ... Lord Xander...is it possible for a prince to...ah...well...love a commoner?
  • Xander: Hm?
  • Mozu: Er...nothing. I'm sorry. I was just mumbling to myself, is all. Hahaha. *sigh* I'm such a chowderhead. I don't know what I was going on about. I'm sorry.
  • Xander: I see. Yes.
  • Mozu: Huh?
  • Xander: I wanted to ask you for the recipe to this soup.
  • Mozu: Oh. Haha, silly me. I thought you were saying something else. Shouldn't have got my hopes up like that. Of course you can have the recipe.
  • Xander: No, don't misunderstand me.
  • Mozu: Huh?
  • Xander: I did say yes in answer to your question. It is possible for a prince to love a commoner. I just also wished to ask you for the recipe.
  • Mozu: Oh. Well...uh...thank you.
  • Xander: You see, I would like to make this soup for you sometime. It appears to be very precious to you, and I can think of no better gift. It alone would be capable of showing you the depth of my feelings.
  • Mozu: Wha— Your feelings?!
  • Xander: Yes. I have fallen for you, Mozu.
  • Mozu: You've fallen for me? ME? You wouldn't pull a poor country girl's leg, would you?
  • Xander: I am serious. I have never and would never say something I did not mean.
  • Mozu: So...then...will you be with me, Prince Xander?
  • Xander: I will, if you'll have me. Now, please, sit and share some of this food with me. From now on, you do not serve me. We stand side by side.
  • Mozu: Oh, goodness. Dreams do come true!

With Camilla Edit

C Support Edit

  • Xander: Is this where you've been hiding, Camilla?
  • Camilla: Hmm? Ah, hello, Xander.
  • Xander: I've been looking for you. The war council is about to start.
  • Camilla: Is it? Gracious. The time must have flown by during my little chat with Avatar.
  • Xander: You were talking to Avatar? What about?
  • Camilla: I suppose there's no harm in you knowing. Avatar had worries about a few things, that's all.
  • Xander: Nothing too serious, I hope.
  • Camilla: Never fear. Between the two of us, we've smoothed things over. *sigh* And that's only the latest crisis. Before Avatar, it was Leo, and before him it was Elise. One after another, they came to me for advice on solving their problems.
  • Xander: I...I see. This is the first I'd heard about any such problems.
  • Camilla: We play different roles, that's all. I am the doting older sister they can come to with their troubles. You, meanwhile, are the stoic pillar of the family, attentive to the war above all else.
  • Xander: That's absurd. The war doesn't have a monopoly on my attention.
  • Camilla: Oh? Do tell.
  • Xander: Some other time, perhaps. For now, we do need to get to that war council.
  • Camilla: You're not making a good case for yourself there...

B Support Edit

  • Xander: Camilla, a word, please.
  • Camilla: What's on your mind?
  • Xander: You claimed that I'm more devoted to the war effort than to my family. I wanted to make it clear that those are not my true priorities.
  • Camilla: Oh dear. Does it irk you that our siblings come to me and not you for advice?
  • Xander: Not overmuch. It's more than that. Our family weighs at least as heavy on my heart as our kingdom's war efforts.
  • Camilla: Does it really? I wonder... Shall we put that claim to the test?
  • Xander: You seek to test me?
  • Camilla: Call it a quiz, if you prefer. A chance to prove the depth of your knowledge.
  • Xander: In that case, yes. I submit to your testing.
  • Camilla: I'll give you an easy first question. What is my favorite food?
  • Xander: I am aware that you like sweets. Bonbons in particular, if I recall correctly.
  • Camilla: I'd expect nothing less from you, Xander. My next question concerns—
  • Xander: Hold, I had not finished answering. You have a weakness for bonbons. But that is not your favorite food in all the world. What you crave, given your druthers, is steak.
  • Camilla: Go on...
  • Xander: You prefer it grilled only lightly and will send it back if there is too much charring. You are also particular about seasoning and will accept only certain sauces.
  • Camilla: How do you remember that much?
  • Xander: Now, as to your favorite vegetables...

A Support Edit

  • Xander: I enjoyed your little quiz, Camilla.
  • Camilla: That much was evident. I was shocked at your memory for details. You knew everything about my favorite foods, Elise's hobbies, Leo's pet peeves... Even Avatar's favorite scents, which I was certain I alone knew. You had a ready answer for every question, no matter how insignificant. Some of those details even I didn't know.
  • Xander: As indifferent to our family as I may appear, that is far from the truth.
  • Camilla: I understand that now. I'll try to dispel any misconceptions the others may still harbor.
  • Xander: Thank you, but there's no need for that.
  • Camilla: Are you certain? If they knew the truth, they might treat you more like family.
  • Xander: Satisfying though that may be, it would not be prudent. My position as crown prince of Nohr is a precarious one. I must maintain a certain distance, even from my family. You seem to be ably handling our siblings' affairs, so I'll leave that to you.
  • Camilla: But...so you mean to tell me you've been deliberately cultivating this image?
  • Xander: Yes. Though I am glad to share the secret with at least one other. Don't worry about me. You said it yourself: we have different roles. Mine is to be the stern, unapproachable crown prince.
  • Camilla: Well...if there's anything I can do to ease your burden, do tell me. I'll always help you in any way I can.
  • Xander: Thank you. I'd expect no less from a princess of Nohr. And since you offered... Might we continue your quiz where we left off? It was surprisingly enjoyable.
  • Camilla: Heehee, but of course. I'll stump you this time, just you wait!

With Leo Edit

C Support Edit

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

B Support Edit

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

A Support Edit

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

With Elise Edit

C Support Edit

  • Xander: Hello, Elise. What is that you're reading?
  • Elise: Oh, this? It's a book about peace.
  • Xander: Peace? Go on.
  • Elise: It gives advide for how to make the world a more peaceful place!
  • Xander: Oh? An ambitious endeavor, indeed. What sort of things does it suggest?
  • Elise: It says it's important to never fight when it's possible to avoid it. And to always have compassion for others, even for your enemies. AND to hold hands often! For bonding and stuff!
  • Xander: Hold hands? Are you sure you read that correctly?
  • Elise: Hey, don't make fun of it!
  • Xander: I'm not, I assure you. It just sounds... strange.
  • Elise: I know, it's not one of your fancy military or history books or anything. But I agree with what it says.
  • Xander: I see. Well, they are points worth keeping in mind, at least. Though I doubt I can use compassion to combat the recent spate of pirate attacks.
  • Elise: I guess that's true...But I still think kindness and compassion are super important for achieving peace!
  • Xander: Of course. We need more of both in the world.

B Support Edit

  • Elise: Xander...you called for me?
  • Xander: Yes. I'm sure I don't have to tell you why.
  • Elise: ...
  • Xander: Not long ago, we received reports that pirates attacked a city on the coast. The town guards managed to fight them off, by some miracle. The pirates they managed to capture were jailed. Justice had been done. But I'm told they received a visitor no less esteemed than the young princess herself.
  • Elise: Y-yes. I was there.
  • Xander: What were you thinking?! If you hadn't decided to heal the lot of them, they'd never have escaped!
  • Elise: ...
  • Xander: Well? What do you have to say for yourself?
  • Elise: I...I'm sorry I was bad. Please don't be mad at me, Xander.
  • Xander: Was this because of that damned book?
  • Elise: Huh?
  • Xander: The one you told me about. Preaching compassion and kindness for all.
  • Elise: ...
  • Xander: I will not forbid you from reading such things. But you must face reality. Force must be met with force. That is the immutable law of the world. In healing indiscriminately, you've done a terrible injustice to those townspeople. Think of those whose loved ones were murdered by those dastards. I expect you to be more mindful of the consequences of your actions. Now, I am going to visit the town. Perhaps I can give them some consolation.
  • Elise: Yes, Brother. I'm sorry...

A Support Edit

  • Xander: Elise. There is something I wish to discuss with you. It regards the escaped pirates you healed. Do you recall? It seems that since they escaped...the town has not been attacked.
  • Elise: Huh?
  • Xander: Prior to the healing incident, that particular town suffered from regular raids. Being a moderately wealthy port town, it was a prime target for plunder.
  • Elise: But then...why have the attacks stopped?
  • Xander: I wondered the very same thing. That's why I sent some scouts to the pirates' hideout. They reported back that the number of pirates there has dropped dramatically. It seems a great many of them had a sudden change of heart and left. This could very well be a result of the kindness you showed them.
  • Elise: ...
  • Xander: "Force must be met with force." Perhaps that is not so immutable a law after all.
  • Elise: Brother...
  • Xander: Elise, I have a favor to ask of you. Would you lend me that book you were reading?
  • Elise: Really? You want to read it?
  • Xander: I do. It appears that it may contain some valuable insight after all.
  • Elise: ...Does this mean you'll show kindness to all of our enemies from now on?
  • Xander: Let's not get carried away, Elise.
  • Elise: Hmph! Then I'm not gonna lend you my book.
  • Xander: Elise, please. Don't behave like that.
  • Elise: ...
  • Xander: *sigh* Very well. If it brings you solace, I promise to try.
  • Elise: You mean it? YAY! Here, it's all yours. There are lots more where that came from too! Fighting Wars on Dance Floors is great! Oh! So is World Peace through Song. Or, actually, I've got a whole stack in my room, if you wanna look and pick a few!
  • Xander: Ah. Thank you, Elise. I shall peruse them at once. For the sake of Nohr.
  • Elise: YAY! You're the best person in the whole world, Xander!

With Effie Edit

C Support Edit

  • Xander: Effie. Do you have a moment?
  • Effie: Lord Xander... Is anything the matter?
  • Xander: No, at the moment all is calm. I just decided I should spend more time conversing with my fellow soldiers. So, if there's anything on your mind I'd like to hear it. Do you have any suggestions, comments, or complaints?
  • Effie: Complaints?
  • Xander: How is your relationship with Lady Elise? All is well, I hope?
  • Effie: Oh, it's perfect. I am prepared, as always, to protect her to my utmost ability. I push myself to the max in every workout and battle for her. I consume plate after plate of food for her. And when the food's all gone, I scavenge for more. For her, I must be strong!
  • Xander: Excellent. We should all be so lucky to fall under your protection. But tell me, is there anything that makes you unhappy? Please, speak freely.
  • Effie: If anything, I am somewhat dissatisfied with my own performance.
  • Xander: How so? It seems you do above and beyond in all you do.
  • Effie: It's just... I hold myself to an impossibly high standard. In some ways I've plateaued, but I want to take my training further. I've tried everything, but it's been difficult to make any progress...
  • Xander: I see. Well, I'm certain you have yet to reach your maximum potential. Have you consulted with Arthur? He seems to take his personal fitness quite seriously. You should have a word with him. Perhaps he'll have some workout tips for you.
  • Effie: Sound advice, milord. I will do just that.

B Support Edit

  • Xander: Ah, Effie. Did you ever meet with Arthur about your training?
  • Effie: Yes, milord. He observed one of my workouts, and then we... uh... sparred.
  • Xander: Fantastic.
  • Effie: Er, yes. Although, to be honest the sparring wasn't particularly useful.
  • Xander: Oh?
  • Effie: Well, it's just... Arthur didn't offer much in the way of competition. Although, in fairness, it wasn't really his fault.
  • Xander: Please, elaborate.
  • Effie: Certainly, milord. Just as Arthur was getting into his battle stance, a bee flew up his nose! Flailing about in confusion, he stumbled across a tree root and lost his balance. We were, unfortunately, positioned near the top of a particularly steep ravine...
  • Xander: Ah, no need to continue, I can guess what happened next.
  • Effie: So... you don't want to hear about the part where he got struck by lightning?
  • Xander: *sigh* Poor Arthur. He seems almost cursed somehow...
  • Effie: True... Anyway, Lord Xander, I am still in search of new training methods. Our enemies grow stronger by the day and I fear I am falling behind,
  • Xander: I understand, Effie. I will give this matter some more thought.

A Support Edit

  • Xander: Effie, I've been giving a great deal of thought to your training regimen. I believe I have arrived at what is hopefully an acceptable solution. Why don't you spar with me?
  • Effie: Are you serious? I'd be honored to spar with you, milord!
  • Xander: Then draw your weapon and prepare yourself. I shall not hold back.
  • Effie: Wait, right this actual second? (weapon clang)
  • Effie: Gah...I wasn't ready!
  • Xander: That's no excuse! Come! Attack! (weapon clang)
  • Effie: Urgh...
  • Xander: What's wrong with you, Effie? I've seen you in battle—you're better than this! Where's that legendary work ethic? Show me what you've got. NOW!
  • Effie: Lord Xander! I...I can't!
  • Effie: Ughhhh... *huff* *huff*
  • Xander: I must admit, I'm disappointed in you, Effie. Why didn't you give it your all?
  • Effie: I don't know, milord. I...I just couldn't motivate myself! I don't have a problem sparring with the others... Perhaps it's because you're my superior. Making myself attack you is like making myself attack Lady Elise.
  • Xander: But sparring is all about imagining you are truly in a fight for your life. Ah, I know. Why not pretend that I have lost my mind?
  • Effie: Lost your mind, milord? How could that...? No...that simply could never happen!
  • Xander: That's enough, Effie. You must now force yourself to imagine the impossible. Imagine I have lost all sense of self and am determined to kill Elise. Are you just going to stand there and watch?
  • Effie: I think I'm going to be sick just thinking about it...
  • Xander: Now, now. You really do take things quite seriously, don't you? Perhaps I have put you in a tough situation. For that, I apologize. Let's call it a day, shall we? It's time for supper, anyway. A hearty meal would do you good. In fact, I order you to eat to your heart's content.
  • Effie: Eat as much as I want? Really? Is that going to be OK? Because I'm not sure there would be enough for everyone else...
  • Xander: Haha! Of course, I had forgotten about your voracious appetite. Well, think of it as a new type of sparring... between you and the cooks. I have a suspicion that this battle will leave you feeling rejuvenated. So! Take up your fork and spoon, and on my command...DESTROY.
  • Effie: Sir, yes, sir!

S Support Edit

  • Xander: Ah, Effie. Thank you for joining me. I know we're a bit off the beaten path.
  • Effie: That's all right, milord... It's nice here. And I wanted to thank you for the other day. I think that gigantic meal got me back on track. I'm feeling better!
  • Xander: Ah, yes. The great battle between the food pantry and Effie was a draw. Not for lack of effort on either side, I might add. I was...impressed.
  • Effie: Well, thank you again. I'd like to think that all that food is making me stronger as we speak.
  • Xander: Speaking of your training...I have devised a rigorous workout for you.
  • Effie: Oh? Tell me more!
  • Xander: Feast your eyes...on THIS!
  • Effie: Milord? All I see is a massive pile of boulders. And I already use those for training.
  • Xander: Effie, I was thinking of building a home here. A magnificent new villa. And I realized that your training might dovetail nicely with my plans.
  • Effie: But I don't know anything about construction...
  • Xander: Never mind that. I have all the details of this new castle worked out. All I need is the brute force to carry, break, and stack the boulders to make walls. What do you think? Would that not be a challenging training regimen?
  • Effie: It does sound challenging...
  • Xander: There's one more thing. When the castle is complete, we shall both live there.
  • Effie: Live...together?
  • Xander: Yes, as man and wife.
  • Effie: HAHAHAHA! I'm sorry, what?
  • Xander: I don't understand what's so funny. I'm asking for your hand in marriage! Will you marry me, Effie?
  • Effie: Gods, you're serious! I...I don't know what to say! Lord Xander... In my most fevered dreams, I never imagined myself as your bride! I mean...you're a prince! I'm just a retainer. How could such an arrangement work?
  • Xander: I understand your reluctance. So...is that a no?
  • Effie: Lord Xander, I consider you the greatest leader and man in the kingdom of Nohr. I want to accept your proposal, but...
  • Xander: Why do you look so uneasy?
  • Effie: I'm worried that it may affect my relationship with Lady Elise.
  • Xander: Effie. Darling. I am fully aware of how much you value your relationship with Elise. That is why I have already set aside a room for her in the castle plans.
  • Effie: You have! Oh, that's so considerate of you! She'll love that! If that is the case, Lord Xander, then my answer is yes. Yes, I will marry you!
  • Xander: Then it's decided.
  • Effie: Oh, I can't wait to get to work! Can I go ahead and start?
  • Xander: Very well, how about starting with this large boulder?
  • Effie: Large? Pfft. I'm so pumped up right now, this thing looks like a pebble. HRRRGH!
  • Xander: Gods! Go easy on those boulders, Effie!

With Laslow Edit

C Support Edit

  • Laslow: Hello, Prince Xander! How is milord doing today?
  • Xander: Not well, I'm afraid.
  • Laslow: I suspected as much, but I'm still sorry to hear it. What troubles you, milord?
  • Xander: I've had complaints of a royal retainer hitting on women in town. ...Some of whom were even in the presence of their spouses at the time.
  • Laslow: Oh? Do you... know the identity of this gorgeous fiend, milord?
  • Xander: It was you, Laslow.
  • Laslow: Ah, indeed. Once again, your powers of deduction astound me, milord.
  • Xander: And that's not the worst of it. I received yet another report only this morning. "Royal retainer apprehended by town watch after engagement in tavern melee. Witnesses report he joined the fight in an attempt to impress a local barmaid." What possesses you to do such things?
  • Laslow: Ah... the full moon, perhaps?
  • Xander: This is no laughing matter, my friend. Laslow... Do you remember the day we met?
  • Laslow: Of course! I'll never forget how shocked everyone in court was on that day. Selena and I might as well have appeared out of thin air, judging by their reactions. Nobles never expect mere commoners to make names for themselves in court.
  • Xander: And they were only further surprised when my father appointed you as my retainer. But while my father chose you, I felt I had to test you myself. Do you recall our duel? Once we began, I found myself taken aback by your strength. Your technique was flawless. At one point, I knew you were merely playing with me. Though I eventually gained the upper hand, I truly feared I might lose the match.
  • Laslow: You did? You never told me that.
  • Xander: I'd never seen someone like you before. You came from nowhere and possessed such incredible power. I imagined you to be a person of great fortitude and discipline. It saddens me to know you are nothing more than a lowly womanizer... How you became so strong when you spend all your time chasing girls is beyond me.
  • Laslow: Ahahaha... It's a gift, I suppose.
  • Xander: Though you continue to disgrace yourself, I won't abandon a trusted retainer. Still, I am obliged to take responsibility for any trouble you cause.
  • Laslow: Thank you very much, sir. I appreciate your support. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have some training to do...
  • Xander: Hold! We aren't done here. I'm putting you under house arrest.
  • Laslow: What?! For some harmless flirting and that friendly little scrap?
  • Xander: For some time, you will be forbidden from leaving camp unescorted. In fact, whenever you are not performing your duties, you will remain in my chamber.
  • Laslow: That's absurd! I'm a grown man!
  • Xander: Do you mean to disobey me?
  • Laslow: N-no milord. I've no wish to part with my flesh.
  • Xander: Good. Then it's settled.
  • Laslow: Yes, milord... *grumble*

B Support Edit

  • Laslow: Ugh... So bored... Is this really all you're going to allow me to do all day? Sit here cross-legged on your floor while you go about your business?
  • Xander: It is. And you know whose fault that is. As long as you remain in my sight, I know you are not bothering the townspeople.
  • Laslow: But I'll get rusty! At least let me go out and get some training done...
  • Xander: Not a chance. I know you too well. The second you're out of sight, you'll make a beeline for the nearest town. Likely to harass yet another poor young woman.
  • Laslow: Fine, fine. Hm? Hm...
  • Xander: ...Staring at me like that will not give me cause to release you any sooner.
  • Laslow: So! You don't have a birthmark on your eye or anywhere, do you?
  • Xander: What? A birthmark?
  • Laslow: Yes. Like a crest or something. Maybe one symbolizing Nohrian royal lineage. Just curious.
  • Xander: What are you talking about? How would I even see with a mark on my eye?
  • Laslow: Ha! A fair point. I never figured that out myself. I ask because the royal family of my homeland had them. I wanted to know if it was the same here.
  • Xander: Oh? Is something on your mind? It's rare I hear you speak of your homeland.
  • Laslow: Is it? Well, if you'd like to know anything about it, I'd be happy to tell you. Although my boss is keeping me busy these days, so I'm a smidge pressed for time.
  • Xander: Was that sarcasm? With me? I admire your bravery.
  • Laslow: N-no milord! I wouldn't dare!
  • Xander: Remember this well, Laslow. If you ever disobey me and attempt to flee, you will not make it far. I will seek you out, I will find you, and I will punish you. By any means necessary.
  • Laslow: Oh? And just how do you think you would find me?
  • Xander: I would begin by looking into your past, of course. No one gets through life without leaving footprints. No matter how remote their homeland is.
  • Laslow: Well, you may have a hard time of it then. There are very few footprints of mine in this world, and none of them are old. Besides, I don't know where you'd start with a fake name and appearance.
  • Xander: What?
  • Laslow: ...
  • Xander: Laslow... Are you...
  • Laslow: ... Just kidding! I got you, didn't I?
  • Xander: So, you think it's fun to play pranks, do you? Very well. It appears as though you require stricter disciplinary action.
  • Laslow: What?!
  • Xander: I had planned to end your confinement today, but I think a change is in order. You are to report to my chambers at dawn tomorrow morning.
  • Laslow: What?! Please no!
  • Xander: The longer you protest, the longer your confinement will be. Understood?
  • Laslow: Yes, milord...

A SupportEdit

  • Laslow: Agh...my legs are aching like crazy... I hope this ends soon...
  • Xander: Laslow... Have I ever told you about my past retainers?
  • Laslow: No, milord, I don't believe you have.
  • Xander: Before you and Peri, I had another two retainers. They were both remarkable warriors—perhaps even stronger than you two. Both were serious and devoted. Their every action weighed and considered.
  • Laslow: They don't seem very similar to me. Or Peri, for that matter.
  • Xander: They weren't. If anything, they were your opposites. I always thought I would have them at my side even after ascending the throne.
  • Laslow: I see. Then why did you replace them?
  • Xander: I did not. They fell in battle at the hands of powerful Hoshidan soldiers. We were outnumbered. They both gave their lives to protect me.
  • Laslow: Oh...
  • Xander: It's easy to say they died fulfilling their duty. But...I believe that had I been stronger, they would still be alive. They died because I was weak.
  • Laslow: Lord Xander...
  • Xander: Laslow...if you wish to fritter away your life on nonsense, I cannot stop you. But, please... Stay vigilant. Don't ever make me experience something like that again.
  • Laslow: Understood. I will do my best. For you... and for your past retainers.
  • Xander: I am relieved to hear you say that. Thank you.
  • Laslow: Well, I have to admit, it didn't take much convincing. I'm quite attached to my flesh. However, there is a related matter I must speak to you about...
  • Xander: Hm?
  • Laslow: If, after the war, I were to go somewhere. Somewhere far away... If you never saw me again... Would you be angry? Would you be able to forgive me for abandoning you?
  • Xander: ...Yes. I would.
  • Laslow: Oh? Truly?
  • Xander: It is not your company I require. Only that you continue to draw breath. I just want you to ensure you live. Whatever your true name or appearance.
  • Laslow: Milord, I—
  • Xander: Wherever life takes you, remember this: You are not simply my retainer... You are my cherished friend. I wish you only the best in what you choose to do with your life. And, come what may, I will never forget you.
  • Laslow: Nor I you.
  • Xander: Good. Well, then. That will about do it. You may take your leave of me now.
  • Laslow: ...
  • Xander: Is something wrong?
  • Laslow: No. I just...didn't want the conversation to end just yet. We have only a limited amount of time in this world, after all.
  • Xander: You may remain if you wish. I am happy to pass the time with you.

  • Peri: Hi, Lord Xander...*sob*
  • Xander: Calm yourself, Peri. Tell me, why are you crying?
  • Peri: I just... It's just...*sniffle*
  • Xander: Speak, Peri. Consider than an order.
  • Peri: ...OK, you asked for it. Everyone keeps yelling at me!
  • Xander: They're scolding you? Whatever for?
  • Peri: They say...they say I...they say I'm a bad retainer! *sob*
  • Xander: Nonsense! I don't think that's for them to decide. Why would they say that?
  • Peri: It's because I'm not... What was it again? Oh yeah. Not respectful. They say I don't respect you enough. That I talk too casual to you. Like that's a bad thing!
  • Xander: Ah, I see.
  • Peri: I really do appreciate all you've done for me! But people say I don't. They say if I was really grateful, I would act like it. But this is how I've always talked! I don't even know how to change! I don't know what to doooooo! *sob*
  • Xander: I see what this is about now... Thank you for telling me of this, Peri. Please keep your chin up, I'm certain your sadness will soon pass.

B Support Edit

  • Peri: Waaaaaaaaah! *sob*
  • Xander: Peri, you must stop crying and listen.
  • Peri: Oh! Lord Xander...?
  • Xander: First, you must know that your manner of speech has never mattered to me. But having said that, I've considered your problem at length. I have decided that you have free rein to behave however you wish.
  • Peri: So...I can just talk how I normally talk?
  • Xander: That's right. If you want lessons in formal speech, I can give you some advice. But if not, you needn't change a thing.
  • Peri: Huh...I...I want to try learning, I'm sick of getting nagged about it. If this keeps up, anyone who talks to me about etiquette will need a tourniquet.
  • Xander: Understood. Then allow me to bestow a few pointers.
  • Peri: That sounds great! Thank you!
  • Xander: I shall start by letting you in on a secret. When nobles speak, we typically consider our words with great care. We take time to build up a large vocabulary that we may properly convey our thoughts.
  • Peri: You mean, you use fancy words?
  • Xander: Ha! That's one way to look at it. Once you build up a proper vocabulary, it's easier to speak formally. I swear, it's not as hard as it first seems.
  • Peri: That's all it takes? OK! I'll give it a shot! *ahem* Thou Lord Xander! Would thine desirest to ride to the batt-um, the kerfuffle with us?
  • Xander: ...
  • Xander: "Thou" is a pronoun. You don't use it with a name. Also it is an informal pronoun...As for "kerfuffle"-
  • Peri: Whaaat?! That was wrong? I don't get it... This is too hard!
  • Xander: "Lord Xander! Is it your will to ride into battle with us this day?" That would be how it's said with the proper formalities. Now you try.
  • Peri: How can I?! I don't get it at all! You lied, Lord Xander! This is WAY too hard to keep straight.
  • Xander: Don't get discouraged. It takes practice. Here's how you could have said that...Repeat after me. "This is far too burdensome to put into practice!" That's how a refined lady might say it. Now you try.
  • Peri: This is far too...burdensome...to put into practice.
  • Xander: Excellent! Very good, Peri.
  • Peri: ...
  • Peri: I hate this! I give up. I'm just gonna talk like normal!
  • Xander: Peri...
  • Peri: I mean, I know how much I appreciate you! What does it matter how I act as long as my feelings are real?...Does that make sense, Lord Xander?
  • Xander: It does. I admit to feeling discomfited hearing you try to speak formally. You're a valuable asset to us. I don't want your morale lowered over such matters. You have my blessing to proceed as before.
  • Peri: So it's OK?
  • Xander: Yes, I will inform the others.
  • Peri: Thanks! You're the best, Lord Xander!

A Support Edit

  • Peri: Lord Xander! Thanks for talking to everyone. No one yells at me anymore!
  • Xander: I'm pleased to hear that the matter is settled. It's good to see you smiling again.
  • Peri: Heehee! Thanks!
  • Xander: Do you remember when I first brought you to the castle? The smile on your face now is identical to the one you displayed then.
  • Peri: Sure I remember! You liked the way I handled myself in the nobles' fighting tourney. So you brought me to the castle and made me your retainer.
  • Xander: That feels as if it was ages ago. though in truth not much time has passed.
  • Peri: I've always wondered, Lord Xander... Why did you bring me to the castle? I didn't win the tourney. I came in, what, third? Fourth? Why call me up instead of the champion?
  • Xander: It was your class.
  • Peri: Like, in school? But I never graduated...
  • Xander: No, as in your caliber as a person. Your quality.
  • Peri: My caliber? But I didn't win.
  • Xander: Is that what you were thinking about during the tournament? Winning?
  • Peri: Not really. I just thought it would be fun.
  • Xander: Yes. And despite that mind-set, and your lack of preparation, you still placed highly. It showed me how vast your potential was. That is why I chose you for service. I wanted strong retainers, who could be counted on not to lose their lives in battle.
  • Peri: In that case, you know how to pick 'em, Lord Xander! I'd NEVER go down without a fight. But do you ever have second thoughts? Like, you wish you'd picked someone else?
  • Xander: Never.
  • Peri: Yippee! And I never regret signing up! I'd do anything for you, Lord Xander!
  • Xander: Thank you, Peri. Your words are much appreciated.

  • Xander: Peri, I must speak with you. It is a matter of some importance.

  • Xander: Do you remember when we discussed my reasons for choosing you as a retainer?
  • Peri: Yeah! something to do with my class?
  • Xander: Yes. And that is as true now as it ever was. But since that day, I've come to notice another admirable quality... One I perhaps value even more.
  • Peri: Oh yeah? What's better than my class?
  • Xander: Well, it has to do with the sort of woman you are...
  • Peri: What do you mean, Lord Xander?
  • Xander: *sigh* It's hard to find the right words. I'll just say it as best I can. I sense a quality in you that has nothing to do with your prowess in combat.
  • Peri: Huh? Like what?
  • Xander: I think that you... I think perhaps... I think you might make a fine wife... and a future queen of Nohr, at that.
  • Peri: HUH?! Are you saying...?
  • Xander: I've had an eye on you ever since I summoned you to the castle. Your style of speech is not an issue, Nohr has had many eccentric queens. Your loyalty has been tested time and time again and found to be perfectly firm. In every way, you seem eminently suitable. And so...
  • Peri: Wait, what? I still don't get it! Say it so I can understand.
  • Xander: I'm putting it as simply as I know how... Let me try this again. In the plainest terms possible... Peri, I'm quite fond of you.
  • Peri: Ohhhh! OK! I feel the same way! I love you too, Lord Xander!
  • Xander: As a prince, yes?
  • Peri: Yep!
  • Xander: I see...
  • Peri: But I love you in other ways too! Just like how I talk doesn't change the way I feel... I love you whether you're a prince or not! I love everything about you, Lord Xander!
  • Xander: Peri...
  • Peri: What about you? Would you love me whether I'm your retainer or not?
  • Xander: Indeed, I would. I love every aspect of you.
  • Peri: Teehee! Well, there you go, then!
  • Xander: Well, in that case... Shall we go select a ring together? Nothing but the finest will do.

  • Xander: Too...rigid? Is that so?
  • Selena: It's OK to be a little uptight now and then, but that's all you ever are! What you need is a sense of humor.
  • Xander: I apologize if my...rigidity has offended you. I simply do not have time to concern myself with such frivolities. All of my efforts must be focused upon improving the welfare of my people. Is a sense of humor really necessary for that?
  • Selena: Yes, it is! Big-time! How else will you make your people love you?
  • Xander: I'm more concerned about their well-being that about winning their favor. I value strength and integrity. There is no need for me to pander.
  • Selena: You wouldn't be pandering. You'd just be showing another side of yourself. Besides, subjects want to love their kings, They'll be happier if you let them.
  • Xander: Hm, I suppose those are fair points...
  • Selena: So we've just got to find your funny bone. It will be a great boon for Nohr. I'm sure of it.

  • Xander: I'm not sure that's necessary to—
  • Selena: OK, let's get started! First, imagine we're in another war council meeting and someone says, "Hold it!" What would you say? Remember, answer with humor.
  • Xander: I'd say... "Hold what?"
  • Selena: Not quite... You should say something more like, "Hold it? But my hands are full!" Did you get it? It's funny because they don't mean "hold" like that! Get it? Do you get it? Tell me you get it.
  • Xander: ...Do people truly find such things funny?
  • Selena: Hey, who's the comedy teacher, here? I said it's funny, so it's funny, right? Anyway, you say that and everyone will see that you're human too. You'll charm the whole room!
  • Xander: I'm not so certain. I think they would be angry I was wasting time with jokes. How can I sit here and jest while my people are miserable? I am their prince. So long as a single Nohrian is suffering, I mustn't allow myself to engage in levity.
  • Selena: Riiight. Look, just trust me on this. Can you do that for me? Just give it a shot! Everyone will love it!

  • Selena: Lord Xander! How goes your humor practice? Have you tried to tell any jokes to anyone?
  • Xander: Yes. I tried your joke about being unable to hold things with my siblings.
  • Selena: Really? That's great! How did it go?
  • Xander: Terribly.
  • Selena: Huh?
  • Xander: I abandoned all shame and said it exactly as you told me to, gesticulations and all. But then everyone got quiet and Camilla looked extremely concerned. Leo and Avatar ran off to find a healer. Elise was crying and saying something about my poor head. I knew immediately that I had made a grave mistake. So I told them I was just feeling silly after having a little too much to drink. It was humiliating, an emotion unbefitting a prince, and one I'm quite unfamiliar with.
  • Selena: Oh. I'm sorry it went so poorly. I mean, that this is my fault. It was probably your delivery. The joke is hilarious! Right? Right. Gets me every time. But I see why it happened. You're always so stern, it must be odd to see you joke.
  • Xander: If it's so odd, then why did you make me try it in the first place?
  • Selena: Well, that's why I'm apologizing! I should have known better. It's just...you always look so upset. I've never seen your brow unfurrowed. I thought that if I taught you a few jokes, it might help relieve some of your stress. But it looks like I failed miserably.
  • Xander: You mean...this wasn't for Nohr? You just wanted me to be happier?
  • Selena: D-don't get the wrong idea! You just looked so ridiculous, I had to intervene! I didn't do it for you. Or Lady Camilla. It's not that I thought she'd like to see you smile... ... She worries about you all the time, you know?
  • Xander: So that's what this is about. Selena...
  • Selena: Bah! Don't start with me.
  • Xander: I just want to thank you. Camilla is blessed to have a retainer like you in her service.

  • Xander: Er...no.
  • Selena: Ugh. I guess that's that. I'll have to think of something else. But don't think I'm letting you off the hook that easily. Your days of being a stuffy, joyless prince are numbered. You hear me?

  • Xander: Better? Even though everyone thinks I'm stiff and intimidating?
  • Selena: Er...about that. You know how I said everyone felt that way? They don't. Or, they might, but I've never heard them say it. It's just...how I felt.
  • Xander: Oh?
  • Selena: I mean, when I first came to the castle, I thought you'd never stop glaring at me! How was a poor, gentle maiden such as myself supposed to feel?
  • Xander: A poor, gentle maiden? You?
  • Selena: *ahem*
  • Xander: Ah, apologies. Please continue.
  • Selena: Lady Camilla told me you were neither scary nor stuffy. She said that you're a compassionate, kind man who puts his family and friends first. Now I know beyond a doubt that she was right. And that's enough. You don't have to learn to be goofy or funny. You just have to be you.
  • Xander: Thank you. It makes me very happy to hear you say that. It also makes this next part easier.
  • Selena: Next part?
  • Xander: Yes. Please, give me your hand. Selena...will you marry me?
  • Selena: C-come again?
  • Xander: You're the only one in the whole world who speaks so openly with me. I don't think that any other woman is as fit to be the queen of Nohr as you are.
  • Selena: But...Xander... I can't be the queen of Nohr!
  • Xander: Preposterous. Whyever not?
  • Selena: Well, I have to go home eventually...
  • Xander: Home?
  • Selena: But if I left...I'd never see you again... No, I just can't think about that now! OK. I'll do it. Come what may. Very well, Prince Xander. I will gladly accept your hand in marriage.
  • Xander: You will?
  • Selena: How can I say no when you have that dreamy smile on your face? When you smile, you're cool AND cute. A girl could get used to that face! But honestly, I like you best as you usually are, stern looks and all. You're the unconquered prince with a kind heart. The man...the man I love. There's no need for you to be anything else. At least, not with me.

  • Beruka: Really. Well, you should be more careful when approaching an armed soldier.
  • Xander: Excuse me? What do you mean by that?

  • Xander: But we are in camp—are you saying that I'm in danger, even when surrounded by allies?

  • Beruka: Perhaps I am still planning.
  • Xander: I am here, right now. If you are going to try and kill me, let's get it over with.

  • Xander: Very well. What is it?
  • Beruka: I have information about the demise of the man who wanted you dead.
  • Xander: Demise? You said nothing of the person being dead when last we spoke.
  • Beruka: That is because I had not yet killed him.
  • Xander: I do not understand.
  • Beruka: I saw the conviction in your eyes last time we spoke. I hadn't ever seen what it looks like when someone carries the weight of a kingdom. But when you  spoke, I could see that you would do anything to protect Nohr. No amount of money could compete with that determination.
  • Xander: Pathetic. You tucked your tail once you saw strength and then killed your employer to save face.
  • Beruka: You are incorrect, milord. I am Lady Camilla's retainer now, and I will continue to serve her faithfully. If I had killed you, it would have hurt Lady Camilla badly. When I confronted my potential employer and said as much, he attacked me. His death was an act of self-defense, not betrayal. I never accepted his contract.
  • Xander: Which means...you did not go back on your word.
  • Beruka: Correct, milord. However, after today I will resign from this army.
  • Xander: Why, Beruka?
  • Beruka: Because, for a time, I did consider taking that contract. You shouldn't have someone like me fighting by your side.
  • Xander: No. I do not accept your resignation. Despite being temped, you remained loyal to my sister, and thus to me. If I banished everyone who so much as considered dishonorable actions... Well, I imagine Nohr would be a rather empty kingdom. Compassion is important for he who would see himself as king one day.
  • Beruka: I think I understand, milord.
  • Xander: Good. I will be counting on you in the coming battles, Beruka.
  • Beruka: Thank you, Lord Xander. I will continue to faithfully serve the kingdom of Nohr. Not just for Camilla...but also for you.

S Support Edit

  • Xander: Beruka, I have had trouble tracking you down since our last conversation.
  • Beruka: I did not want to remind you of my near betrayal, milord.
  • Xander: I understand, but I must tell you… Your absence has wounded me more than those events ever could have.
  • Beruka: I…don’t understand.
  • Xander: Beruka, will you marry me? I have procured this ring as proof of my commitment to you.
  • Beruka: Milord, I…I'm so happy to hear those words from you. But…is someone like me, an assassin, truly a worthy queen of Nohr?
  • Xander: Of course. In fact, you are the perfect fit. Nohr needs a queen who is familiar with the dark side of life, not just the light. So tell me, Beruka—what do you say? I eagerly await your answer…
  • Beruka: I don’t know what to say, milord. I have the strangest sensation. It's like how I felt after my first kill. My heart is racing, and I feel like I have butterflies in my stomach. I have but one question, Lord Xander. If you had to kill me in order to save Nohr, would you do it?
  • Xander: … I would, yes. Though it would haunt me until my dying day.
  • Beruka: Good. I don’t want to come between you and your kingdom. I will gladly accept your marriage proposal.
  • Xander: You’ve made me so happy, Beruka. I'm sorry if this seems sudden, but you’ve always been so guarded about yourself… If possible, I'd love to see where you grew up.
  • Beruka: You want to see the slums? Are you sure? It's a dangerous, unsavory place…
  • Xander: I know, but I want to learn everything about you—about what made you who you are. I want to share in your sorrows as well as your joys, if you'll allow me.
  • Beruka: Xander… It would be my great joy to share that with you. Thank you…my love. 

With Nyx Edit

C Support Edit

  • Nyx: Prince Xander, is there anything that troubles you?
  • Xander: An odd and unprovoked question. Why do you ask it?
  • Nyx: It's rude to answer one question with another. And I asked first. Is there anything that troubles you?
  • Xander: No. Not at the moment...
  • Nyx: ... You dissemble, prince, but I know the truth.
  • Xander: If memory serves... you are a soothsayer, are you not?
  • Nyx: Yes. And?
  • Xander: My apologies, Nyx, but I believe the art to be a sham and a ruse.
  • Nyx: Do you now...? Then it is fortunate that I am not relating a prophecy.
  • Xander: Oh? Say what you will, but I have no troubles. I must go hence to plan the next offensive. Unless you foresee disaster there too?
  • Nyx: No. But promise me this. Come see me before the strain becomes too much to bear.
  • Xander: ... If you insist.

B Support Edit

  • Xander: I'm curious, Nyx. What are you so certain that I'm worried about?
  • Nyx: Hmhm. You came straight away, I see. Didn't you say that soothsaying was a sham and a ruse?
  • Xander: Answering a question with a question, are we?
  • Nyx: Haha! Well done. But you surprised me. I didn't think you'd come.
  • Xander: Answer the question, please. What did you think was troubling me?
  • Nyx: May I be frank?
  • Xander: You have my leave.
  • Nyx: It's the war. The fighting troubles you.
  • Xander: The war?
  • Nyx: Yes. The truth is that you have no desire to kill your enemies. But in war, their lives can mean nothing. You must have no qualms in taking them. This puts you in a difficult position. You seem to be in pain.
  • Xander: ...
  • Nyx: You are noble in spirit as well as blood. As the eldest prince, you always put your kingdom first. But that is also your weakness.
  • Xander: Do tell...
  • Nyx: You should not have to sublimate your own feelings for the greater good. You must give them a voice and be true to yourself on occasion. ... That is all.
  • Xander: So noted. Tell me, on what grounds do you say all of this?
  • Nyx: Must I explain myself?
  • Xander: Soothsaying, then. I thought as much. So, you truly are aware of my feelings on the subject. Interesting. I must be going now. Thank you for your time. Good day, Nyx.
  • Nyx: ... That is regrettable. For myself, and for you as well.

A Support Edit

  • Nyx: Prince Xander, we must talk.
  • Xander: If this is more soothsaying...
  • Nyx: No. You asked me before what grounds I had to say those things. You assumed I knew what I did through soothsaying, but that is not the truth.
  • Xander: Then what is?
  • Nyx: ... In you, I saw something that felt familiar.
  • Xander: How so?
  • Nyx: The crown prince of Nohr must surely know why I am called a monster.
  • Xander: I do.
  • Nyx: I am forever young in form, and not through any fault in my bloodline. Why do you think that is?
  • Xander: I... I couldn't say.
  • Nyx: Even at a young age, I was skilled in the dark arts. I cast eldritch spells with ease. But the power proved too much for a child. One spell, cast half in jest, cost many people their lives. The toll it took on me caused my body to be frozen in time.
  • Xander: ...
  • Nyx: There were times when I wanted to die rather than deal with what happened. But I live on, hoping that someday I might find a way to atone for my crimes. Despite this, I've found that my talents lie mostly in dealing more death. It makes one wonder what the point of it all is. If all I do is kill, am I really winning my salvation? Or something else?
  • Xander: ... You and I may be more alike than I thought. I'd like to discuss this further, if you have the time.
  • Nyx: I'll listen as long as you wish. Even if I don't look it, I'm old enough that I might have some useful advice for you.

S Support Edit

  • Nyx: You summoned me, Prince Xander?
  • Xander: I have a proposal for you. I want to grant you noble status. Would you like to be the Queen of Nohr?
  • Nyx: What?!
  • Xander: Your shock is understandable, but know that my proposal is genuine. As proof, I present you with this ring.
  • Nyx: ... I'm honored—thrilled, even—but are you sure about this? To wed an outsider...
  • Xander: The kingdom of Nohr is strongly unified. Yet even so, it is more fragile than it seems. An objective point of view such as yours would be valuable. Moreover, you are courageous, calm, and collected, with a sharp mind. All of those are qualities befitting a queen. But above all else, you are the one whom I love.
  • Nyx: But... the things I've done...
  • Xander: In terms of lives claimed, I am not far behind you on that grim tally. If there is any way for us to atone... it is by stopping the fight here. Together, we shall ensure such a burden never touches another generation. You and I will be the cornerstone of a new era of Nohr.
  • Nyx: ... Intriguing. I see no reason to refuse your proposal.
  • Xander: Wonderful! This is a bright day both fur us and for Nohr.
  • Nyx: But you know that due to my curse, I will remain in this state. I will never age. You don't mind that in a wife?
  • Xander: It is not precisely what I envisioned for my queen, but we will make it work.
  • Nyx: I suppose I at least will never fear you abandoning me for someone younger...
  • Xander: That's absurd. If that were all that drove my decision, I'd have proposed to a brainless courtier.
  • Nyx: Hmhmhm, a very good point. Thank you... dear Xander.

With Charlotte Edit

C Support Edit

  • Charlotte: Hello, Prince Xander. You sent for me?
  • Xander: Indeed, Charlotte. Take a seat.
  • Charlotte: Um, all right... Milord, you've got such a scowl on your face, and yet it's as wonderful as ever! *swoon*
  • Xander: ...
  • Charlotte: Is something bothering you, milord?
  • Xander: This is meant to be a serious conversation. I have received less than flattering reports about you lately.
  • Charlotte: Bad reports? I don't understand.
  • Xander: It appears you've been completely ignoring army regulations. Numerous times. Can you explain yourself?
  • Charlotte: I'm causing a disruption in the army? I didn't realize anything was wrong...
  • Xander: Don't give me that. You know exactly what you've been doing. You hold a rank above the average soldier and your behavior is not appropriate. Do not behave in such a way that will embarrass Nohr.
  • Charlotte: I wasn't trying to cause any--
  • Xander: This is just a warning. Heed it, or there will be more dire consequences.
  • Charlotte: ... Tsk... He must be talking about my flirtations... I'll need to change how I do things.
  • Xander: Did you say something just now?
  • Charlotte: Not I, milord! It must have been the wind you heard!

B Support Edit

  • Charlotte: Prince Xaaaaaandeeerrrr!
  • Xander: Charlotte? What do you need?
  • Charlotte: I don't need anything, milord! I'm here because I prepared a lunch for you!
  • Xander: You made me lunch?
  • Charlotte: Yes indeed. I poured an extra amount of love into it, just for you! Please, give it a try.
  • Xander: I see. Thank you for making this for me. It is nearing lunchtime, so I may as well. It all looks pretty good, too. Maybe I'll try some of this...
  • Charlotte: I made sure to use only the most healthy of ingredients, milord. I know your life is very demanding, so this mean was made to give you lots of energy!
  • Xander: Ah, the taste is excellent. I'll admit it: this is a good meal.
  • Charlotte: Thank you for the compliment, milord!
  • Xander: So, what's your next move?
  • Charlotte: Excuse me?
  • Xander: You've demonstrated that you can prepare an exceptional meal. What comes next?
  • Charlotte: I'm sorry, milord. I don't understand what you're saying...
  • Xander: This is how you make yourself more popular with the men in camp, is it not? I told you before, I've gotten reports.
  • Charlotte: ...Usually, I'd lean in to point out something in the meal, casually brushing against them. Like this...
  • Xander: Stop. We've already talked about your behavior and how it needs to stop.
  • Charlotte: My apologies... But... is what I'm doing really so wrong? It seems like something men enjoy.
  • Xander: If you have time to work out how to catch the eyes of those around you... you have time to train yourself for combat.
  • Charlotte: I... Um... Yes, milord.

A Support Edit

  • Xander: Hnmpf! HAAH!
  • Charlotte: It seems Prince Xander is working on his swordmanship today... I still can't believe I've found a man who can resist my charm. I suppose it's unsurprising: he is Nohrian royalty, after all. An intimidating man... Ugh. Snap out of it, Charlotte. Just go apologize to him, and be... Those Faceless over there! And they are heading for Prince Xander! Milord! Look out!
  • Xander: That was close. Thanks for the aid, Charlotte.
  • Charlotte: I only did what I had to.
  • Xander: I am surprised, though... I saw you defeat a Faceless with only your fists.
  • Charlotte: I... welll... *sigh* Unarmed brawling is probably one of my best skills.
  • Xander: If that's true, why do you fight with a weapon?
  • Charlotte: I don't think such a talent would be all that appealing to the men.
  • Xander: You seem so concerned with how others see you. Why? I'm sure you'd have just as many admirers if you hid less from the world.
  • Charlotte: It's nice to say such a thing, but not everyone shares your mind-set. And I've experienced personally being rejected for showing my real self.
  • Xander: Charlotte...
  • Charlotte: I was born into a family of peasants. We had very, very little. I always dreamed of the vast riches the nobility possessed. That's why I'm so concerned with how men see me. It's my dream to find my way into that life. I won't let anything stand in my way.
  • Xander: Heh. You're pretty honest once you drop the act.
  • Charlotte: I apologize for disrupting the army. But I also won't change how I act. If that's not acceptable, I can depart at first light tomorrow.
  • Xander: There is no need to adjust your behavior.
  • Charlotte: ...What?
  • Xander: Behave within reason. I don't want to read any more odd reports. Do that, and you may do... whatever it is you call you do.
  • Charlotte: R-really? Thank you, Prince Xander!

S Support Edit

  • Xander: Thanks for coming so quickly, Charlotte.
  • Charlotte: Of course, Prince Xander. But... isn't this place reserved for members of the royal family?
  • Xander: It is, yes.
  • Charlotte: I'm deeply moved... I've always wondered what it was like to be here. But, why...
  • Xander: I would like for you to be able to come here whenever you wish. But for that to be possible, I must admit my feelings...
  • Charlotte: What are you... W-wait a minute... I know I'm normally a little... silly, but can I say something up front and direct?
  • Xander: Of course.
  • Charlotte: This... is messed up!! Are you telling me you've fallen for me?! Because I'm warning you, I get revenge for jokes made at my expense!
  • Xander: ...
  • Charlotte: But if that isn't the case, then I apologize for my words. I'm just struggling to understand what you're saying.
  • Xander: Charlotte, I've felt a strong attraction to you since we first met. I would have said something sooner, but I was hesitant. I thought a relationship between us would be too complicated.
  • Charlotte: Complicated? How would it be complicated?
  • Xander: I felt that a prince should only be with someone of noble blood. But as I thought about it more, and as I learned more about you... I realized it wasn't an impossible situation in the least. I'm sure that we can work together to overcome any hardship.
  • Charlotte: You're really fine with this? Wouldn't I become Queen of Nohr in the future?
  • Xander: You would. And that's what I would like.
  • Charlotte: Well... I suppose I'll need to let my parents know my situation has changed a bit... Explaining the increase in how much money I send them each month, heehee.
  • Xander: Hah, of course you send money to them. It's important to care for one's parents.
  • Charlotte: Xander, I'm so excited for our future! Could you excuse me for a moment? I need to just poke my head out of this window...
  • Xander: Of course. What is it you're do--
  • Charlotte: WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
  • Xander: Oh, Charlotte. You never cease to amuse me.

With Ryoma Edit

C Support Edit

  • Xander: Prince Ryoma. There is something I wish to speak with you about.
  • Ryoma: What is it?
  • Xander: There have been complaints from my siblings and my soldiers. Whenever one of us attempts to talk with Avatar, you are always there. And if you aren't, some other Hoshidan is. What is the meaning of this? I thought we had agreed to seek a new path to peace, to forge an alliance of trust. Or was that a lie? Do you still doubt our intentions?
  • Ryoma: It was no lie.
  • Xander: Then why are you still keeping us under surveillance?
  • Ryoma: I have decided to trust you, but many in Hoshidan army have not. That is why I am keeping watch over you and yours. I wish it was not necessary. And I am sorry if it has caused your people grief.
  • Xander: Is it truly so impossible to trust Nohrians?
  • Ryoma: Try to understand, Prince Xander. King Garon lured my father into a trap and murdered him in cold blood. As if that were not enough, he stole Avatar from us. A mere child! You cannot blame my countrymen for being suspicious.
  • Xander: Of course. But do you not think it unfair to punish a son for his father's sins?
  • Ryoma: I understand that it was King Garon's doing and that he is now your enemy too. Still...enemy or not, he remains your father. It must be difficult to turn your sword against him, regardless of the facts. I'm doing my best to sympathize... However...
  • Xander: ...I see. You need not continue. I will tell my people to pay no mind to the matter. Your perspective, though incorrect, is perfectly understandable.
  • Ryoma: Prince Xander...
  • Xander: Trust can only be earned, not demanded. And earning it takes time. So we will wait. In the interim, we are no strangers to hostile receptions. We shall endure.
  • Ryoma: ...

B Support Edit

  • Xander: Prince Ryoma. There is something I must speak with you about. I have noticed that Avatar is often without a Hoshidan escort these days. Are you aware of this?
  • Ryoma: Of course. It is so because I ordered it so.
  • Xander: Why? I told you it was all right, and if it helps appease your people, all the better.
  • Ryoma: I appreciate your sympathy in this matter, but I have reconsidered things. I have lately realized...that you and yours are perhaps not our true enemy.
  • Xander: Have you, now? Please, go on.
  • Ryoma: After what happened all those years ago...I will always worry about Avatar. But I would remiss to allow that concern to cloud my judgment. It would endanger us all to doubt our own allies, prince Xander. I see that now. And so I must overcome my own prejudices, for the good of all.
  • Xander: I see...
  • Ryoma: Hm? Does my answer not satisfy you?
  • Xander: I think it is a decent answer...but you may want to consider things more practically.
  • Ryoma: Hm?
  • Xander: You are allowing yourself to be bound by social obligation. This is a mistake. As leaders, all we have is our training and our instincts. We live by both. Teach yourself to neglect either, and it will come back to haunt you on the battlefield. I appreciate the thought, truly...But if it puts your soldiers' minds at ease, I implore you to continue your watch. Trust will come, eventually. In my heart, I know this to be true. In the meantime, we will sta patient and vigilant.
  • Ryoma: ...Understood. Thank you, Prince Xander.

A Support Edit

  • Xander: Prince Ryoma, I must speak with you. Lately Avatar has been entirely without a Hoshidan escort. What is the meaning of this?
  • Ryoma: Are you displeased, Prince Xander?
  • Xander: Not displeased, simply baffled. I continue to appreciate the sentiment, but I thought we had settled this. Do not worry about our feelings or any such frivolity. You must do as you see fit for the good of your troops.
  • Ryoma: Agreed. But you're missing one key piece of information... I did not command my men to leave you and the other Nohrians alone. I simply told them to redouble their efforts in pursuing our enemy. Any distractions they would have to lay aside if we were to prevail. Just who their true enemy is, I allowed each of them to decide. It appears you have earned their trust.
  • Xander: I see...
  • Ryoma: Prince Xander, I would like to thank you for reminding me of what is important. We are not fighting against each other in this war. Our real enemy is the Vallites. We must devote all our energies to their defeat. Besides, if you wanted to turn coat and destroy us all, you could at any time. There is little we could do to prevent it, so living in fear is pointless.
  • Xander: Prince Ryoma... Your words show true wisdom and leadership. We Nohrians place such importance on instinct and vigilance... But we can't forget who we're fighting against, or what we're fighting for. The fate of the world is bigger than us all, bigger even than a feud between kingdoms. If we can work together, I know we can help Avatar achieve true peace. And on that day, I hope to call you not just an ally...but perhaps a friend as well.
  • Ryoma: Nothing would please me more. I have but one objection.
  • Xander: Oh? What might that be?
  • Ryoma: You say you hope we can be friends when the world knows peace... But I see no reason to wait that long. You are a good prince, Xander. And even more impressive, a good man. It has been my honor to fight alongside you.
  • Xander: The honor has been all mine, Ryoma. Here's to a bright future.

With Hinoka Edit

C Support Edit

  • Hinoka: Prince Xander... Could I have a moment of your time?
  • Xander: Hello, Princess Hinoka. What do you need?
  • Hinoka: I wanted to ask your opinion about something I discovered... Ryoma is planning a dinner party for me.
  • Xander: Oh really? That's very kind of him.
  • Hinoka: I agree, but there is one small problem...
  • Xander: What kind of a problem?
  • Hinoka: You see, it was supposed to be a surprise dinner party. Obviously it won't be now, since I found out about it... How should I behave in this situation?
  • Xander: Hmm... How did you find out about the party?
  • Hinoka: Well, I was walking down the hall, and the door to Ryoma's room was open... I heard him whispering about it to another person.
  • Xander: I see. It definitely wasn't meant for your ears, then.
  • Hinoka: I have no one else I can talk to about this. As a fellow royal, I thought you might have some insight you could share.
  • Xander: Do you know what the reason for the dinner party is?
  • Hinoka: No idea at all... It's not for my birthday... It could be the anniversary of my first victory in battle. I think that's coming up soon, and it's been several years since it happened.
  • Xander: Well, my advice is to feign ignorance. When the party does happen, just behave as you normally would. Whatever you do, don't dwell on your knowledge of the party. Just enjoy it.
  • Hinoka: Thank you, Prince Xander. I'll follow your advice.

B Support Edit

  • Hinoka: Prince Xander...
  • Xander: What's the matter, Princess Hinoka? You look a little down... You aren't still worried about knowing about the dinner party, are you?
  • Hinoka: I am. I wasn't before, after we talked - but I am now. You see, the anniversary of my first victory in battle has come and gone... The party I thought was being planned never happened. Maybe I misheard Ryoma after all...
  • Xander: I see...
  • Hinoka: I'm such a fool. I bet there never was any dinner party to begin with. It's so unlike me to get excited over something like that. I was so nervous, I was almost shaking whenever I was talking with Ryoma. On the anniversary itself, I couldn't focus on anything at all. I couldn't eat, I couldn't read. I thought that Ryoma would call on me at any time. But in the end, the day came and went.
  • Xander: I understand why that would bother you... But try not to take it so hard. It's always possible that the party is planned for some other celebration.
  • Hinoka: I thought of that, too, but I can't think of a single other event that it could be for...
  • Xander: Hrm... It is a puzzle... I'd be happy to try and help you work it out, if you need someone to listen.
  • Hinoka: Thank you, Prince Xander... You're much kinder than I thought you'd be.

A Support Edit

  • Hinoka: Hey there, Prince Xander!
  • Xander: Ah, hello, Princess Hinoka. You look to be in very good spirits today.
  • Hinoka: Of course I am! After such a wonderful dinner party, how could I not be?
  • Xander: I'm glad. You see now that there was no reason for you to worry.
  • Hinoka: Yes. You were right. I appreciate your help. There are a few things I still don't understand, though... Like... What was that dinner party actually celebrating? I can't think of any anniversaries, it wasn't my birthday... And if it was a Hoshidan celebration, why were you there, Prince Xander?
  • Xander: Erm...well...
  • Hinoka: Hang on... Could it be that you planned the whole event yourself? Maybe I really did mishear Ryoma and there was no party being planned originally... But you felt bad when you saw how excited I became, and so planned one yourself?
  • Xander: Who knows? I suspect that it will forever remain a mystery. The food was good though; that much we know!
  • Hinoka: You know, Prince Xander, you act like you are unemotional... But you are actually pretty sensitive and considerate to others.
  • Xander: Hahaha... You're welcome to interpret the party however you like. You may be giving me far too much credit.
  • Hinoka: Just the same, thank you, Prince Xander. As a sign of my gratitude, would you like to take a ride on my pegasus? I know of an amazing place that can only be reached from the air.
  • Xander: That sounds wonderful. I look forward to it.

S Support Edit

  • Hinoka: Hello, Prince Xander. Is something wrong? Your summons sounded urgent.
  • Xander: I apologize for the rush, but I didn't realize until this morning what today was.
  • Hinoka: What do you mean? Is there something special about today?
  • Xander: There is a Nohrian belief that couples who dine together on this day... Well, they say the bonds that tie them are strengthened by eating together today.
  • Hinoka: I don't quite understand...
  • Xander: I'm sorry. Allow me to explain. After the last dinner party, I had hoped to plan more meals between the royalty. I thought that by doing so, we could bring our two kingdoms even closer together. But I also realized that you were the one I specifically wished to get to know better...
  • Hinoka: Prince Xander, are you saying... Do you have feelings for me?
  • Xander: Yes, Princess Hinoka. That is it exactly. Heh, it's actually a bit difficult to leave myself vulnerable like this. That's not a feeling I'm accustomed to.
  • Hinoka: You may feel vulnerable, but you aren't in any danger, Prince Xander. I've cared for you for a while now. Even before you planned that dinner you wont' admit to planning. That kind act made me think that maybe my feelings toward you were mutual.
  • Xander: Oh? Was it that obvious? I'll admit that I feared how you would react to my confession.
  • Hinoka: You have nothing to fear! Hmm... You said that eatin together today would strengthen our bond?
  • Xander: That's the belief in Nohr, anyway...
  • Hinoka: In that case, we'd better find something to eat and somewhere to eat it!
  • Xander: Princess Hinoka, I'm so glad to hear you say that. I'd planned ahead, just in case you did feel for me as I feel for you... Follow me. I have a special meal waiting for us.
  • Hinoka: I can't wait!

  • Sakura: Oh, it's n-nothing... I just wanted to say hello...

  • Sakura: Y-yes... Uh...no! Actually, that's not it at all...
  • Xander: No?
  • Sakura: Um...I'm s-sorry. This is awkward...
  • Xander: It doesn't have to be. I swear it. If you have something to say, please—just say it!
  • Sakura: M-maybe later...
  • Xander: What was all that about?

B Support Edit

  • Xander: Lady Sakura, may I have a word?
  • Sakura: Uh...OK.
  • Xander: I'm curious. The other day, you stopped to say hello and then...disappeared. Now, it's a bit of a mystery. What was that about?
  • Sakura: I was just p-practicing.
  • Xander: Practicing what?
  • Sakura: I'm training myself not to be s-so shy. I always get nervous around people. I thought if I could work up the nerve to talk to someone like you...
  • Xander: Someone like me?
  • Sakura: Well, y-you're the most intimidating person in Nohr!
  • Xander: Oh. I see.
  • Sakura: Ack! I'm s-sorry! I didn't mean to blurt it out like that! I'm sure you're actually v-very nice. It's just...you're pretty scary!
  • Xander: Scary? Ha!
  • Sakura: I'm sorry! I didn't mean to say that!
  • Xander: Don't apologize. I get that a lot. I am used to it by now. Some mean it as a compliment; others do not.
  • Sakura: Oh, that was so incredibly rude of me! I'm r-really sorry!
  • Xander: Gone again, just like that...

A Support Edit

  • Xander: Princess Sakura, may I have a moment of your time?
  • Sakura: Um! I! Uh...
  • Xander: You wanted to practice speaking with the most intimidating person in Nohr, right? I'm happy to be of service.
  • Sakura: I'm s-so sorry I said that... It's just...
  • Xander: You don't have to explain. I understand completely.
  • Sakura: You do?
  • Xander: I don't tell many people this, but I was a timid child. I could barely make eye contact. I was also clumsy with a sword at first, which disappointed my father to no end. Then, one day...I decided to change. I tried the very tactic you are using now. I decided to talk to the most frightening person I could find.
  • Sakura: Wh-who was that?
  • Xander: My father.
  • Sakura: Really?!
  • Xander: Yes, and it worked. But talking to my father was not the thing that changed me.
  • Sakura: It wasn't?
  • Xander: The most important thing is that you must WANT to change. I see that desire in you. So, let's talk. Now. You choose the topic.
  • Sakura: B-but I don't know how!
  • Xander: Don't think so hard. Tell me... What's the best thing that's happened to you today?
  • Sakura: Oh...I know! I passed by some pretty flowers this m-morning.
  • Xander: Ah, gardening. That's good! We'll start with flowers... What sort were they?

S Support Edit

  • Xander: Lady Sakura, shall we talk some more?
  • Sakura: Yes, I would enjoy that?
  • Xander: Ah, I like that fierce look in your eyes. Your training seems to be paying off.
  • Sakura: Yeah, maybe... If it is, I have you to thank!
  • Xander: Today, I think we should talk about the future.
  • Sakura: Oh, that's good! I like to imagine what it'll be like in our countries after the war...
  • Xander: As do I, but that's not what I meant. Princess Sakura... *ahem* What I mean to say is...um... This is odd. You have me at a complete loss for words.
  • Sakura: Prince Xander? Wh-what is it?
  • Xander: What I'm trying to say is... I want you to have this ring.
  • Sakura: Th-th-that's a... ?
  • Xander: Sakura, you look pale. Are you OK?
  • Sakura: Y-yes... I just got n-nervous again. This is such a huge moment! Heeheehee...
  • Xander: Now you're laughing? Gods, this isn't going well.
  • Sakura: No, I'm sorry! It's just funny... We're both making each other nervous!
  • Xander: I suppose I can see the humor in that. Still, I must implore you to give my request your serious consideration. If you say yes, I promise I will always do my best for you and for our people.
  • Sakura: Oh, Xander. You've already done so much for me. I first approached you because I found you intimidating... But now, I look forward to our every conversation. I won't keep you w-waiting, Xander. My answer is yes!
  • Xander: I am so pleased to hear it. Come, let us go tell the others.

With Siegbert (Son) Edit

C Support Edit

  • Siegbert: Hello, Father
  • Xander: Siegbert? I didn't see you there.
  • Siegbert: Are you preparing to ride into the fray?
  • Xander: That I am. Care to join me?
  • Siegbert: I-I'll decline... I lack the necessary experience to ride at your side. Any contribution I could make would pale in comparison to yours, Father...
  • Xander: I'm not expecting you to sweep the battlefield single-handedly, Son. But I think you'd get a lot out of it. Hands-on experience is priceless.
  • Siegbert: I don't doubt that. It's just... You see, I—
  • Xander: I won't force your hand, Siegbert. I realize you have your own duties to handle.
  • Siegbert: I hope I'm not disappointing you, Father.
  • Xander: Think nothing of it. We'd best both be off, then. I to my duties, and you to yours. But do bear in mind that my position and my sword will pass to you someday. Remember that well.
  • Siegbert: You needn't worry about that, Father. It is ever uppermost in my mind...

B Support Edit

  • Xander: I'd like to ask you something, Siegbert. What qualities are demanded of those who inspire others to action?
  • Siegbert: Might, wisdom, and skill come to mind. An iron will and faith in one's cause...
  • Xander: Indeed, all of those are crucial qualities in a leader.
  • Siegbert: You have an ample share of each one, Father.
  • Xander: And which of these qualities do you see in yourself, my son?
  • Siegbert: None of them. If I am an apple from your tree, it is undoubtedly a rotten one. I must hone my skills, until I am as mighty and noble as you...
  • Xander: I am very sorry, Siegbert.
  • Siegbert: Whatever for, Father?
  • Xander: I fear that my constant presence at your side has stunted your growth... Even more alarming, I fear I have somehow harmed your own self-image. That is the last thing a father ever wants to do to their own son. To compare the two of us does justice to neither. You have your own methods—your own ideals—and they are as valid as mine.
  • Siegbert: You're wrong! You are the star by which I navigate, Father! The yardstick by which I measure myself. You're...you're my hero.
  • Xander: I understand your feelings, Son. Truly, I do. There was a time when my father was the world to me as well. But if you would learn any one thing from me, let it be this. Your father I may be, but in this army, you and I are but fellow soldiers. And a soldier who cannot rely on his allies shall inevitably meet a swift end. In order to properly rely on me, you must first stop being intimidated by me. I am no star, merely a learning tool. Let us help keep each other sharp.
  • Siegbert: Father... Thank you. I will consider carefully what you have said.
  • Xander: If I can do anything to aid your growth, please don't hesitate to tell me. I wish to know...as your ally, and especially as your father.
  • Siegbert: I will, Father! I promise!

A Support Edit

  • Siegbert: Father... There is a small matter I'm hoping you might help me with...
  • Xander: Siegbert? Leaning on me for assistance, are you? It's about time.
  • Siegbert: I hope I'm not being a bother...
  • Xander: Not in the least. What seems to be the trouble?
  • Siegbert: Ofttimes when I am caught in the gazes of our people, I am struck with fear. Their eyes are so heavy with expectation, and there are so many of them... I feel I must be nothing less than perfect in their eyes. And this vexes me.
  • Xander: You buckle under the weight of expectation, do you? I know the feeling well.
  • Siegbert: You do, Father? I didn't expect you to say that.
  • Xander: I'm flesh and bone, like anyone else. I wasn't prepared for this burden at first.
  • Siegbert: Then you are just the one to tell me—however did you manage the strain?
  • Xander: ...Bunnies. Whenever the people's beseeching eyes caused me to lose my nerve... I would imagine them as bunnies. Even the most chickenhearted, after all, never shrank from a bunny's stare.
  • Siegbert: Well, that's...certainly true.
  • Xander: It's not always that I imagine them this way, of course. Only at times when the strain might be otherwise too much to bear.
  • Siegbert: Haha... It's an interesting approach! I'll try that next time, Father.
  • Xander: I hope that it helps you as it has helped me. But do you know what lifts my spirits even more, Siegbert? To see my son come to me for advice.
  • Siegbert: I...I just never wanted you to think that I couldn't figure it out on my own. I just want so badly for you to be proud
  • Xander: I know. And I am. More than words could ever fully convey. But we both stand to gain, never to lose, from frank and honest discussion. Let us not be strangers, but family. Anything you need, I wish to provide.
  • Siegbert: Thank you, Father. I won't soon forget those words. I...I love you so very much.
  • Xander: I love you too, my son. Come. Let us continue this discussion over a cup of tea.
  • Siegbert: Yes, sir!

With Kana (Male) (Son) Edit

C Support Edit

  • Kana: Hey, Papa. Can I talk to you about something?
  • Xander: Of course, Kana. What is it?
  • Kana: It's Mama... I feel like she's always treating me like a child.
  • Xander: That's only natural. You are her son, after all. And you are still quite young.
  • Kana: I know, I know. I just mean I'm not as much of a child as I used to be. I want to help out with things. But whenever I try, she just tells me to go play with my friends instead.
  • Xander: I see. You want some responsibilities of your own.
  • Kana: Yeah! I want to show her she can rely on me. I wonder if there's something I could do for her...
  • Xander: Hmm. Let's see... Well, I try to spar with her as often as our duties permit.
  • Kana: And that makes her happy?
  • Xander: Yes. She's always happy to cross swords.
  • Kana: Oh.
  • Xander: Hm? What's wrong?
  • Kana: I don't know. I guess I don't feel like my sparring with Mama would help her very much...
  • Xander: Ah, I see.
  • Kana: Oh, I know! Let's have a contest, Papa!
  • Xander: A contest?
  • Kana: Yeah! We'll have a contest to see which of us can make Mama happier! Between the two of us, I'm sure we can come up with all sorts of things! Whoever Mama thanks the most wins!
  • Xander: Oh? You wish to challenge me? Very well, then. I accept.
  • Kana: Really? Yay!
  • Xander: But remember: I am your mother's husband. I know her better than anyone else. And I do not intend to go easy on you. Besting me will be no easy feat.
  • Kana: That's fine by me, Papa. I'm gonna beat you fair and square!
  • Xander: Heh. Then may the best man win!

B Support Edit

  • Kana: Hey, Papa! I’ve been making so much progress in our contest! How about you?
  • Xander: Well, I haven’t done anything too special yet, but she has thanked me many times. Let’s see---I’ve got my tally right here.
  • Kana: WOW! That’s so many!
  • Xander: Yeah, I am as surprised as you are. I suppose I do more for your mother than I thought. It's a nice feeling. Perhaps I'm a passable husband after all.
  • Kana: Hmph...Well, I’m not going to lose! Here, see! I've been tallying mine too! And the total is…um…
  • Xander: That would be...the same number as I.
  • Kana: It is? It is! Haha! I'm gonna beat you after all, Papa! I don't have to work like you, so I've been spending all day doing things for her!
  • Xander: So that's your secret. And what, precisely, have you done?
  • Kana: Mostly I’ve been trying to help out around camp. I spend each morning making arrows for the archers. Then, at lunch, I slice the bear meat and hand out food to the soldiers. Oh, and at night I make sure the mounts are all fed and outfitted for the next day. Plus I do a bunch of other little things whenever I have the time!
  • Xander: That's an enormous amount of work for someone your age. I'm impressed. You really have been growing up, haven't you?
  • Kana: Huh?
  • Xander: Oh, just a thought. It wasn't so long ago you were still in your swaddling clothes. Now, all of a sudden, you're making a real, important contribution to the army. Maybe I've been treating you too much like a child as well.
  • Kana: Heehee. Yeah, I’ve been working real hard. Soon there’ll be nothing I can’t do!
  • Xander: I believe it. And I bet your mother is very proud of you.
  • Kana: I hope so! And I'm gonna make her even prouder tomorrow!
  • Xander: You're turning out to be a worthy adversary, little Kana. I cannot afford to be careless, or you may just secure the win.

A Support Edit

  • Kana: *grumble*
  • Xander: Hello, Kana.
  • Kana: Hi, Papa...
  • Xander: What's the matter? I expected you to still be exulting after your little victory the other day. Or has besting your old man in a contest already lost its charm?
  • Kana: Oh, no. I'm still happy about that, I guess. It's just that I was trying to do things for Mama earlier, and she made me stop. She said I should be spending more time playing around with my friends again. She still thinks I'm just a kid. Haven't I shown her I'm old enough to handle helping out around camp?
  • Xander: So that's it. I wouldn't worry. It's not you. You're doing good work, I promise.
  • Kana: Then why doesn't she want me to help with anything?
  • Xander: I think your mother knows full well that you're capable of handling these things. But seeing you acting so grown up makes her feel sad.
  • Kana: Huh? Why?
  • Xander: Well, she doesn't want to lose her baby boy. She is very, very proud that you're growing up and working so hard. But at the same time, she's worried it means you won't need her anymore. It's a little silly, but it's true. Parents can be funny like that.
  • Kana: So...what should I do?
  • Xander: I'd say to keep helping out around camp, but don't work yourself so hard. Take frequent breaks to see your friends, play games, and go on adventures. And try to spend some quality time with your mother every now and then. Think you can handle that?
  • Kana: But...
  • Xander: What? Do you not want to spend time with your mother?
  • Kana: No, that's not it! It's just... I feel like that stuff is for babies.
  • Xander: No, Kana, it's not for babies. It's for children. And your mother wants you to stay a child for as long as you can. We both do.
  • Kana: Papa...
  • Xander: Kana, we know that you're growing and that you want more responsibilities. And we know that you're going to be a fine young man someday. But for now...relax. Don't try to grow up so quickly. After all, you have the rest of your life to be a responsible adult.
  • Kana: OK. Thanks, Papa. I'll think real hard about everything you said.
  • Xander: I trust you will. You know... I think it would be good if you spent the night in with your mother. I'll go talk to her about it.
  • Kana: Wait! What about you?
  • Xander: What? Me? No, I have to train and—
  • Kana: But, Papa! I thought you wanted me to enjoy my childhood. It wouldn't be much of a childhood without a papa...
  • Xander: Well, when you put it that way... As you wish, Kana. Go tell your mother.
  • Kana: Yaaay!
  • Xander: A future king who can't even refuse a request from his own son. *sigh* But...I suppose a good king must always be at the service of his subjects. Especially when their face lights up at the thought of a night in with Papa...

With Shigure (Son) Edit

C Support Edit

  • Xander: Hello, Shigure. Painting again?
  • Shigure: Hello, Father. Sorry, I didn't hear you come in. I know this is no time for painting, since we're at war and all.
  • Xander: I have no intention of scolding you, Son. Quite the opposite. In times of struggle. it's difficult to follow your passions. I'm sorry that you have to go through this. The Truth is, I think you're a genuinely gifted artist. It's important that you focus on your work. Don't let the outside world distract you.
  • Shigure: That's kind of you to say. But I honestly don't think I have much of a future as an artist.
  • Xander: You and your modesty...Why don't you show off this artwork? All these fine paintings are going to waste.
  • Shigure: What do you mean?
  • Xander: I just had an idea...How would you feel about having a solo exhibition for all your work?
  • Shigure: An exhibition? I could never do that! Besides, our troops are on the advance. The setup alone would be way more work than it's worth.
  • Xander: This won't be some opulent affair. All we need to do is reserve a tent and let everyone in town known about the event. It shouldn't be a problem.
  • Shigure: B-but it seems so vain to reserve a whole tent just for personal use.
  • Xander: Please, don't misunderstand, Shigure. In exhausting times, it's especially important to find peace of mind. Your paintings can bring relief and joy to our community. Don't you see? This event could benefit everyone.
  • Shigure: I'm not sure...
  • Xander: If you're unwilling, I'm not going to force you. But please consider it. What do you say, Son?
  • Shigure: OK, fine...We can try it, I guess. But I have to admit that it makes me a bit anxious.
  • Xander: Don't be. We should get the ball rolling right away. I'll head into town to recruit some helpers and turn this idea into a reality. See you soon, Son
  • Shigure: Thank you, Father.

B Support Edit

  • Shigure: Hello, Father...
  • Xander: Shigure, what's on your mind?
  • Shigure: Well... You've done so much to make this exhibition a reality. I just wanted to say thanks.
  • Xander: You're expressing your gratitude to the wrong party, Son. Many villagers pitched in to help set up your exhibition. Things are coming together very rapidly.
  • Shigure: Oh...
  • Xander: Hmm? Shigure, are you nervous?
  • Shigure: Of course. But mostly I'm concerned about my newest painting. It's just not coming together like I hoped it would.
  • Xander: Is this the painting you're creating for the special occasion? It would be great to add it to the show, but time is running short. There is still much to prepare for. Perhaps you should return to completing this piece after the show?
  • Shigure: I promised myself that I would get it done. So many people have come together to give me this opportunity. And the final piece really unites the show. I have to keep going.
  • Xander: I understand. But please, don't overdo it. If you make yourself ill, this will all be for nothing.
  • Shigure: Don't worry. Thank you, Father. I should return to my easel.
  • Xander: Very well. Just promise to look after yourself.
  • (Shigure leaves)
  • Xander: He certainly is fixated on this new painting... I wonder what the subject is...

A Support Edit

  • Xander: It's the big day. Shigure's exhibition is finally under way. I wonder how it's going inside? Wow... This is amazing. Look at all these people... From what I've overheard, the crowd seems to be enjoying his work. The show is a wonderful success. But where in the world is Shigure? I haven't seen him anywhere...
  • Shigure: *pant...pant*
  • Xander: Son, what happened? You're late! Where have you been?
  • Shigure: Sorry about that, Father. I've been up all night finishing my painting.
  • Xander: Oh? Is that the new painting you were telling me about?
  • Shigure: Y-yes, it is...
  • Xander: Don't you remember when I warned you to be careful? Even without this last piece, there are more than enough paintings here.
  • Shigure: I know. But 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.
  • Xander: This is...myself and your mother?
  • Shigure: Yes, it's a portrait of you and Mother. I wanted to use this chance to paint it, at any cost.
  • Xander: So this is what you've been so devoted to working on?
  • Shigure: Yes, Father. My love for you two 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.
  • Xander: Shigure... This is quite a surprise. I had absolutely no idea what you were up to!
  • Shigure: F-Father, it hurts when you hug me so tightly... Hahaha.
  • Xander: I am very lucky to have such a thoughtful boy like you.
  • Shigure: I'm lucky too.
  • Xander: I'm glad you think so. There's no time to waste! We have to put this painting on display.
  • Shigure: OK... But it's a little embarrassing.
  • Xander: I swear, it isn't. This exhibition wouldn't be complete without the finest piece on the wall! We have to find the best spot in this whole tent so everyone can see it. Do you mind, Son?
  • Shigure: No, of course not. Let's go!
