Marth and Kris

First conversation

Kris: Sire, are you departing?
(If Kris is male)
Marth: Hello, Kris. I was just heading to the armory.
Kris: You need not trouble yourself with such a trivial chore, sire. Speak the word, and I'll fetch as many iron swords--
Marth: Thanks, but I'll be fine. I'm used to it. Besides, I want to affirm the situation with my own eyes.
Kris: Then I shall accompany you.
Marth: Thank you, Kris. But I'm just going to visit the armory. There's no need to bother you.
Kris: I understand, sire. Still, it would be terrible if anything were to happen to you. It is my duty as your Royal Guard to protect you at all times.
Marth: You worry too much, Kris. But I appreciate it. All right, let's go together.
Kris: Yes, sire!
(If Kris is female)
Marth: Hello, Kris. Yes, but it's nothing important.
Kris: There is no need to concern yourself; please tell me what you wish to do and I shall do it in your stead.
Marth: Thank you. But it's okay, I'll be back soon.
Kris: Then, I shall accompany you.
Marth: I appreciate it, but... Kris, I'm not going anywhere dangerous.
Kris: Still, it would be terrible if anything were to happen to you, sire. It is my duty as your Royal Guard to protect you at all times.
Marth: I-I see. Hmm... the truth is...
Kris: Sire?
Marth: Well, I've accumulated a little sweat, so I was considering undressing and taking a bath. However, I was just thinking whether or not it would be fine to show you my naked body...
Kris: P-p-p-p-p-please forgive me! So you just wanted a bath... I'm sorry, how embarrassing of me.
Marth: Oh no, it's okay. I'm really happy that you'd go that far to protect me.

Second conversation

Marth: Hello, Kris. Are you doing anything?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Yes, sire! I am off to the drill grounds.
Marth: The drill grounds? Then you must want more battle experience.
Kris: Yes. My objective is to not merely win, but to attain a winning streak. To win twice, then thrice in a row, fighting stronger enemies each time... To learn the limit of my strength-- that excites me.
Marth: You're really looking forward to it. I can see it in your face.
Kris: Indeed, sire! However...
Marth: What is it?
Kris: There is something I must tell you, sire. My strength... exists for protecting the people of our fair country. To that end, I have continuously trained and battled so that I could become stronger.
Marth: I understand. But?
Kris: But... when I become stronger and when I fight opponents stronger than myself, I get excited. I begin to feel my blood boil... As if I sought strength and battle for my own sake.
Marth: Kris...
Kris: When I become stronger... I bask in my newfound power. Deep inside my heart... I long for battle. "A man with untamed power is no better than a beast," my grandfather once said. And I heed his warning. If my lust for power causes me to stray from the way of the knight...
Marth: It's all right, Kris. Just like you're there for me, I am here for you. You won't go down the wrong path. I'll make sure you don't. I promise.
Kris: Yes, sire... You're right. With you here to guide me, I will be fine. You have my gratitude.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Yes. I am off to the drill grounds.
Marth: The drill grounds? That's the place where you can acquire further battle experience, correct?
Kris: Yes, it's a wonderful place. It costs money, true, but if you land a winning streak, you can obtain more experience than in actual battles. So I'm sure we can all become much, much stronger if we visit it.
Marth: That's how you plan to become stronger, Kris...? I'm amazed by your commitment.
Kris: Yes, I shall work hard so that I may live up to your expectations. If I become stronger, I can also fight stronger opponents... It's quite thrilling. Oh...
Marth: Is something wrong?
Kris: No, I just realized what I just said wasn't very feminine...
Marth: Haha, perhaps indeed. Does it bother you?
Kris: Yes... Even as a child, all I ever did was training. I don't know to do girly things, like cooking or sewing. Until now, I told myself I'm a knight before I'm a woman, but... As of late, I noticed I've even started thinking like a man, and... That's just embarrassing. And it makes me worried... that those in our army might view me as a man.
Marth: Though I think you're girly enough, Kris.
Kris: Y-you speak truly?
Marth: Yes. When you heard me talk about bathing, your face turned bright red... No doubt, I think that part of you is very girly.
Kris: A-ah, about that episode... Please don't mention it again... Oh dear, how embarrassing...

Third conversation

(If Kris is male)
Marth: Kris... Why do you devote yourself to me so strongly?
Kris: I am your Royal Guard. For you, sire, I--
Marth: No, I speak not of that. I know it's your duty. I want to know more about you.
Kris: About me, sire?
Marth: How long have you wanted to become a knight of Altea?
Kris: For as long as I can remember, sire. My grandfather has always wanted me to become a knight. I loved my grandfather, so I endeavored to live up to his expectations. That's why I volunteered.
Marth: I see. So it was your grandfather, then.
Kris: However... That is not the only reason. Not any more. I found another reason once I came to Altea Castle and met you, sire.
Marth: When you met me?
Kris: Yes. I have fought alongside you thus far. Once I came to know you, I knew I wanted to fight for you.
Marth: Kris...
Kris: Sire. I devote myself to you, for your sake, not mine. I am truly happy that you are my liege.
Marth: Thank you... Hearing you say that makes me happier than anything. I am not a strong man. However, if you're here for me, then I know we'll be victorious.
Kris: Sire...
Marth: Kris. Let's end this war, alive. Both of us. No matter what.
Kris: Yes, sire!
(If Kris is female)
Marth: Kris, I am sure our battles will become tougher from now on. However, we cannot afford to lose. For everyone's sake...
Kris: Yes, I understand. Sire, let us end this war, alive, no matter what. For the future of Altea... and for the future of this world.
Marth: The future, huh...? Five years or ten years afterwards... What kind of future awaits us, I wonder?
Kris: I believe you'll ascend as king of Altea, and govern the world. By then, you'll probably have children too... I am certain your children will be both kind and brave.
Marth: Thank you for your kind future. And what will you be doing, then?
Kris: When that time comes... I believe I'll still be serving you by your side. And, if I happen to have children of my own... I am sure my children will fight for the future of Altea, as well.
Marth: My children and your children... It would be lovely if they could get along.
Kris: Truly.
Marth: For that future, too... We must be victorious. Let's do our best, Kris.
Kris: Sire!

Kris and Luke

First conversation

Kris: Hah! Haah!
Luke: Yo, Kris! Hm? Are you training alone?
Kris: Yes, it's pretty much a habit by now.
Luke: Man, you're pretty crazy. You're already so skilled, I'm sure you can afford to take a breather.
Kris: No, I can't. I'd die of shame if I failed to protect Prince Marth because I lacked skill.
Luke: I see... You do have a point. Alright! Then, Kris, duel with me!
Kris: What's gotten into you all of a sudden?
Luke: I'll train along with you! We'll have a competition to see who finishes first!
Kris: Are you alright? I thought you hated training?
Luke: Looking at you, I figured I just couldn't allow myself to stay in your shadow. I'm Prince Marth's knight, too. For his sake, I'll become much stronger!
Kris: I see... Luke, my opinion of you has slightly risen now.
Luke: Heh. Kris, don't fall in love with me!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I... don't swing that way.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Oh, I wouldn't worry about that.
Luke: Hey, what's that supposed to mean?

Second conversation

Kris: Luke.
Luke: ...Huff, puff... ...pantpant...
Kris: Luke, are you listening? Let's continue training already.
Luke: D-don't talk to me, please... I'm dying here... Thanks for... everything... It was... fun...
Kris: What are you saying? We aren't even half done.
Luke: Y-you're joking, right...? All this running, carrying and swinging weapons around... Any normal person would drop dead... H-hey, why do you look just fine...?
Kris: That's because I'm accustomed to this since my childhood days.
(If Kris is male)
Luke: Y-you've been doing this training from hell since you were a kid...? Y-you're not human...
Kris: Now, that's just rude. Here, if you can't move then I'll just have to drag you along.
Luke: No... stoooop...
(If Kris is female)
Luke: Y-you've been doing this training from hell since you were a kid...? You can't be a woman...
Kris: Now, that's just rude.
Luke: Scratch that, I'm starting to wonder if you're even human...
Kris: Okay, you've gone too far now. Fine, if you can't move then I'll just have to drag you along.
Luke: No... heeeeeelp...

Third conversation

Luke: Hah! Hah! Haah! Alright, I'm finished, Kris! What's next? Bring it on, I'll take on any training!
Kris: This was the last bit of today's training.
Luke: What? It's over? I-I did it... What do you think, Kris? I was able to keep up with your training.
Kris: Yes, you were incredible, Luke. It's the first time you've been able to go on this long. And here I was convinced you were just going to complain again...
(If Kris is male)
Luke: Nah, I did complain... But you'd just drag me along regardless... But well, I have to thank you, Kris. Thanks, man.
(If Kris is female)
Luke: Nah, I did complain. But you'd just drag me along regardless... But well, I have to thank you, Kris. Thanks.

Kris: The pleasure was mine. It's as though you're somebody else on the battlefield of late. It might be time I learned from you instead.
Luke: Heh. Kris, don't envy me!
Kris: Oh, don't worry about that.
(If Kris is male)
Luke: Tch! Kris! Keep your eyes on me in the next battle! I'll show you my cool side again and again until you're sick of it!
(If Kris is female)
Luke: Tch! Kris! Keep your eyes on me in the next battle! I'll show you my cool side again and again until you're sick of it! And before you realize, you'll have fallen for me already!

Kris: Yes, I'm looking forward to it.

Kris and Roderick

First conversation

Kris: Hahh, hahh...
Roderick: What's going on? What are you doing here?
Kris: Ah! Uh, no-nothing...
Roderick: What's that paper you're holding?
Kris: ...It's a rough map of the area. I thought it would be a smart idea to take a look around.
Roderick: ...And then you got lost. That reminds me, you got lost once during our apprentice days, didn't you?
Kris: I did. I caused trouble for you guys back then...
Roderick: Don't you have any sense of direction? Come on, let's head back. Sir Jagen is looking for you.
Kris: Say, Roderick. If you look at my map, where exactly are we right now?
Roderick: ...I don't think that map is of this area.
Kris: ...

Second conversation

Roderick: Kris, what are you doing?
Kris: I'm going through my belongings. I was going to get rid of some tools I no longer use and books I've finished reading. When I first volunteered to be a knight, I imagined I would always travel lightly...
Roderick: That's a lot of stuff.
Kris: Yeah, I've gradually picked up a lot of items since then, and I only just noticed how bad the situation's gotten.
Roderick: These books look difficult... Have you read them?
Kris: Yes, all of them. Strategy and tactics are always important, after all.
Roderick: I see. ...Can I have them?
Kris: Oh? Sure, I don't mind.
Roderick: Thank you. ...Well, see you later.
Kris: Hm? Sure, I'll see you at the war council.
Roderick: ...I see. You're not just coasting on talent. You're putting in all of this effort every day, aren't you...?

Third conversation

Roderick: Kris, what are you doing here again?
Kris: Hm? Oh, I just thought a change of scenery would help heal my spirit...
Roderick: You don't need to hide the fact that you're lost from me.
Kris: Haha... Sorry. You got me. How do you find your way around so easily?
Roderick: Hmm... First, I look for distinct landmarks. Then, I use them to draw a map in my mind.
Kris: ...All right. I'll try that.
Roderick: But the most important thing is this: if you're lost, ask someone.
Kris: Ah...
Roderick: There are other things you can rely on. Like us. ...If you're not sure if the army is going in the right direction, you must inform us straightaway. We can't afford to ALL get lost.
Kris: Man, you're never going to let me forget about that, are you...? But... thanks, Roderick.

Cecil and Kris

First conversation

Cecil: Kris, I have a favor to ask. May I train with you?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Sure, I don't mind. It won't be easy, though. Are you all right with that?
Cecil: Of course. You won't hear me complaining. Also, let me make this clear: don't go easy on me just because I'm a woman. That would be an insult to me.
Kris: Fair enough. Well said, Cecil.
Cecil: I'm an Altean knight, just like you. I expect the same rights as any other knight, and of course, the same responsibilities. I hate being spoiled or favored because I'm a woman.
Kris: You're strong, Cecil.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Yes, I don't mind. It won't be easy, though... Are you all right with that?
Cecil: Of course. You won't hear me complaining. Kris, your strength is clear to me. And that's why I don't want to fall behind you in the battlefield.
Kris: Alright, I understand. But, Cecil, you're strong too.

Cecil: Not at all. That's the least thing... ...Huh...?
Kris: What's wrong?
Cecil: ...S-say, Kris... Didn't you hear something?
Kris: Hm? No, not a thing.
Cecil: It sounded like a sad howl...
Kris: Aw, I'm sure it's just the wind. What's wrong, Cecil? You don't look too well...
Cecil: I-I'm calling it a day. Training too much is bad for your body, after all!
Kris: Cecil? But we haven't started training yet...

Second conversation

Cecil: S-say, Kris.
Kris: What's the matter?
Cecil: Er... Did you hear that rumor? I-I don't believe it, but I'm just curious...
Kris: What rumor?
Cecil: Y-you know... The rumor that there's a ghost haunting this army...
Kris: Oh, that nonsense.
Cecil: Nonsense!? They say the ghost of a long-haired girl...
Kris: Yeah, that was just some dry wood. Someone was just seeing things. It's just a joke at this point.
Cecil: A-ah, I see. Yes. Of course. There's no way it could have been a ghost...
Kris: Cecil, don't tell me you're afraid of ghosts?
Cecil: N-no way! Something like that couldn't possibly exist! I'm not a child anymore... Ghosts are silly. But just to be on the safe side...
Kris: Hm?
Cecil: What? Is something wrong?
Kris: Didn't you hear that strange sound, Cecil?
Cecil: Huh?! Kyaaaaaaa!
Kris: Cecil!?
Cecil: W-where, where!? Where did it come from!? Where is it? N-no... Noooo!
Kris: Wait... Calm down, Cecil. I can't move with you clinging on to me like this.
Cecil: B-but, but...! It's t-the gho-ghost... Begoooone vile spirit!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Cecil... Listen to me...! M-my neck... Stop squeezing my... I can't... breathe...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Cecil... L-listen to me...! M-my neck... Stop squeezing my... I can't... breathe...

Cecil: Someoooone! Save meeeee!
Kris: T...that's my... line...

Third conversation

Cecil: Oh, er...
Kris: Hi Cecil. About last time... Hey, wait. Please wait. Why are you trying to run away from me?
Cecil: L-last time... I really made a fool of myself. And I was talking so proudly... Y-you can laugh all you want.
Kris: So you have a weakness too, Cecil.
Cecil: Y-yes I do, what about it!? No matter how hard I try, I can't do anything if I'm afraid! It's my fault for being afraid!
Kris: That isn't a bad thing. That's just how you are.
Cecil: Say what...?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Everyone has their weaknesses. I'm the same. And that goes for battle, too. None of us are perfect. That's why we have to work together. So, you don't need to force yourself.
Cecil: ...Kris. ...That might be true. I didn't want to fall behind. I didn't want to show my weakness. That's why I was always acting tough. But, because you saw my weakness... I think I can relax a bit now.
Kris: I see. All is well, then. But I have to say, you can be unexpectedly cute, Cecil.
Cecil: C-c-cu... Cute!?
Kris: Yes. The way you screamed was...
Cecil: Y-you...! Erase it from your memory! Take this!
Kris: W-wait. Calm down. I was just saying...
Cecil: I don't care, forget about what you saw, forget iiiit! Take this, and this!
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Everyone has their weaknesses. I'm the same. And that goes for battle, too. None of us are perfect. That's why we have to work together. So, we don't need to force ourselves. Not me, not you.
Cecil: ...Kris. ...That might be true. I didn't want to fall behind. I didn't want to show my weakness. That's why I was always acting tough. But, because you saw my weakness... I think I can relax a bit now.
Kris: I see, I'm glad. Then I'm counting on you, Cecil.

Arran and Kris

First conversation

Kris: Sir Arran, there is something I want to ask of you. Please teach me what it means to be a knight.
Arran: To be a knight...?
Kris: Yes, sir. What is it that really defines a knight? I've always pondered this. Be it prowess, nobility or loyalty... Each knight seems to have a different answer. I want to know what you think, Sir Arran.
Arran: The way of the knight, huh...? Sadly, I can't teach you... Argh! Cough...! ...Guh...!
Kris: Sir Arran, are you all right?
Arran: ...Yes, this happens all the time. No need to fret. Kris, before serving Prince Marth... I used to be a wandering knight. I have served two masters. I am not worthy to speak about what it means to be a knight.
Kris: But, that's exactly why I wanted to ask you, Sir Arran. I've been thinking... Perhaps there's more than one way to be a knight-- Maybe each knight holds his own meaning in his or her heart. I am inexperienced as a knight, so I was hoping you could help me find my way, Sir Arran...
Arran: ...Sorry, but I still haven't figured it out for myself. I'm afraid I can't help you.
Kris: I see... That's a pity.
Arran: I'm sorry...

Second conversation

Arran: Cough...! Guh...! Gah...ha...!
Kris: Sir Arran!? What's happening to you...!? Pull yourself together! Somebody, please help! Sir Arran is...!
Arran: Wait! Please... Don't tell the others.
Kris: But, you look absolutely terrible...!
Arran: This won't kill me. Not while this war rages. I swear it on my honor as a knight. This will likely be my last war. I don't want to leave with any regrets.
Kris: Sir Arran... Why are you pushing yourself so hard...?
Arran: You asked me before what it means to be a knight... Long ago, I went astray... This war shall be my redemption.
Kris: Sir Arran...
Arran: For a knight, sacrificing yourself for your cause is the highest honor... Kris, I beg of you. I'm sure you understand, as a fellow knight...
Kris: ... ...Yes. If you are set on this... I will not stop you.
Arran: You have my thanks, Kris...

Third conversation

Arran: It happened a long time ago, when I was a knight for my old kingdom. There was a rebellion and my liege ordered me to suppress it. But what I met was no army... They were poor peasants, unable to survive the harsh winter due to the poor harvest.
Kris: ...
Arran: They didn't intend to fight. But, in order to survive... they had no choice but to make themselves heard. My liege understood that and ordered me to slay them to set an example. And I... followed that order.
Kris: ...Sir Arran...
Arran: I used to think absolute loyalty to one's liege was a knight's most important duty. But, I was mistaken. So, I left my liege and spent a long time wandering...
Kris: That's... But it wasn't your fault, Sir Arran. The one responsible for it was...
Arran: No, I... can't forgive myself. "I was just following orders... It wasn't my fault..." I could tell myself that endlessly, but deep inside I'd never be convinced. And it would not erase my sins. I can't forgive myself more than anyone.
Kris: Sir Arran...
Arran: A liege I could swear loyalty to from the bottom of my heart... I searched far and wide for such a liege and finally I found him. Prince Marth is my liege. As long as I fight for him, I can be a true knight.
Kris: So that's why you're fighting so hard in this war...
Arran: I won't last long. I probably won't survive this war at all. But, I have no regrets. A knight isn't a puppet that blindly follows orders. That is not loyalty. To fight for a cause I believe in, under a liege I believe in. That is what it means to be a knight.
Kris: Sir Arran... Sir Arran, please let me follow your path.
Arran: Kris...
Kris: After listening to your words, I can now see it clearly-- The path I must follow as a knight.

Gordin and Kris

First conversation

Gordin: Hmmm...
Kris: Sir Gordin, is something troubling you?
Gordin: Oh, hey Kris. It's nothing important, but... Kris, how do I look?
Kris: Huh? I'm not exactly the best person to ask for fashion advice...
Gordin: No, I was just thinking... I've never really had any presence.
Kris: Presence? You mean, like Sir Jagen?
Gordin: Yeah, the kind of presence people recognize from a glance: the kind that makes you nervous even when you've done no wrong. I've got a kiddy face, so I don't look like a senior knight much. The worst part is when I look even younger than you...
Kris: Indeed...
Gordin: It was like that the last time I watched the new knights training. When the young apprentice knights passed by me in the castle, they'd say "you do your best, too!" I can't help but think they mistook me for an apprentice like themselves...
Kris: S-so you've experienced that.
Gordin: That's not all, some even wanted me run errands for them... Because of things like that, I want to become respected. Kris, could you tell me if you ever find a good way?

Second conversation

Gordin: Kris! Training again today, huh?
Kris: S-sir Gordin?
Gordin: Good work! That's what an Altean knight is made of! But don't think I'll be left in the dust!
Kris: ... ...What's the matter? Do you have a fever?
Gordin: What? No... Sorry. Was I really that weird?
Kris: If you must ask... Yes, you were.
Gordin: I-I knew it... I thought I'd become more dignified by changing the way I speak... So I tried to mimic the tone of a senior knight I respect, but...
Kris: I see...
Gordin: I guess I really can't be somebody I'm not. Kris, do you have any ideas on what I should try next?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I don't know if it'll help, but... What do you think about changing your looks?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Hmm... What do you think about changing your looks?

Gordin: Hey, good idea. I should make myself look more imposing... Maybe I ought to grow a beard. Kris, do you think I'll look dignified with a beard?
Kris: ... ...Pff!
Gordin: D-did you laugh? You imagined me with a beard and laughed, didn't you?
Kris: S-sorry. I didn't mean...
Gordin: No, it's fine. I guess it really wouldn't suit me... What am I supposed to do...?

Third conversation

Gordin: Hey, Kris. You training too?
Kris: Yes, are you as well, Sir Gordin?
Gordin: Yes. I decided to leave the "presence" matter for now, and do my best on training. I figured that if I became more useful in battle, I'd naturally look more imposing.
Kris: So that's why. I noticed you've been fighting far better as of late, Sir Gordin.
Gordin: R-really? That makes me happy. So do I look dignified now?
Kris: Not really.
Gordin: I-I see...
Kris: However, isn't it fine for you to stay like this, Sir Gordin?
Gordin: Eh?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I think your approachability is a quality others lack. I believe the reason they greeted you, being anxious new knights themselves, was because you left them at ease.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I think your approachability is a quality others lack. I, too, feel at ease when you're by my side, Sir Gordin. I believe the reason they greeted you, being anxious new knights themselves, was because you left them at ease.

Gordin: I-is that so?
Kris: Yes. Also, when people have worries that they find hard to divulge... They feel like they can discuss them with you, Sir Gordin. For instance, say... If somebody is distressed about love... Were they to thoughtlessly talk to Sir Jagen about their problems...
Gordin: Ahaha, that wouldn't do. He'd flay them alive! I can hear him already: "You forget your duty as a knight!" You're right! B-but keep this a secret from Sir Jagen, would you? Don't tell him I said that. If this leaks out, he'd flay ME alive...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Haha. Of course, Sir Gordin.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Heehee. You have my word, Sir Gordin...

Ryan and Kris

First conversation

Kris: Oh right, you're Sir Gordin's little brother, aren´t you, Ryan?
Ryan: Yes. I signed up to be a knight because I wanted to be like Brother.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I remember you met every now and then during our apprentice days. You two seemed rather close.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I remember you met every now and then during our apprentice days. I thought it was nice you had someone close to you...

Ryan: Don't you have siblings, Kris?
Kris: Well, no... That's why I'm a little envious. What's it like having someone close to you who's around the same age?
Ryan: Hmm... Well, my brother's always been in my life so it's hard to describe it. Oh, but whenever I argued with my parents or friends... I liked it when Brother stuck up for me.
Kris: You've a nice family. I see. So you quarrel too, Ryan.
Ryan: ...N-not anymore though.

Second conversation

Ryan: Apparently Mother and Father wanted to have a girl. Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to have a big sister.
Kris: I understand that feeling well. What if I had a sibling...? That question often crosses my mind. I wanted a brother. A younger one.
Ryan: Really?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Yeah, I think I'd dote on my little brother if I had one. It'd be great if I had a docile little brother like you. Oh, but since I'm a man, I can't be the big sister you wanted...
Ryan: Well, um, it doesn't have to be a big sister... I'd be happy with a big brother, too. I just thought it'd be nice if the three of us were siblings, Kris...
Kris: Haha, I see. (If Kris is female)
Kris: Yes. If I had a little brother, I think I'd pamper him a lot.
Ryan: It'd be nice if you were my big sister, Kris. Then us three would be siblings...
Kris: Heehee, you're right. Had I been born in your family, Ryan... I think we'd make good siblings.
Ryan: Yes, I can picture it. If I had a big sister who's strong and pretty like you, Kris, I'd brag about you to everyone.

Third conversation

Kris: Ryan, what are you doing?
Ryan: I'm writing a letter to my family back home. Though it'll be a long time before I can send it. I wonder if Mother and Father are alright...?
Kris: You should take a break after this war is over, then. You ought to go home and spend some quality time with your family.
Ryan: Yeah, I want to. Won't you go back home, Kris?
Kris: Mmm. Ever since grandfather passed away, there's nobody home anyway... So, if I'm there all alone, I'm only going to feel lonely.
Ryan: Er, then, why don't you come to my home?
Kris: Your home?
(If Kris is male)
Ryan: Well, yes. If it's okay with you... I think of you as a second big brother, Kris.
Kris: Thanks, Ryan. Your thought makes me happy.
(If Kris is female)
Ryan: Well, yes. If it's okay with you... I think of you as a big sister, Kris.
Kris: Thanks, Ryan. I love your idea. If you don't think I'm a bother, then I would like to visit...
Ryan: Yes, I'm sure my family will be happy to meet you too.

Draug and Kris

First conversation

Draug: Kris. How are things?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: P-perfect, sir!
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Very well, sir!

Draug: You don't need to be so formal with me. You're not an apprentice anymore. Here, we are both comrades protecting Prince Marth together.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Yes sir, understood. But Sir Draug, you truly are a humble man. Despite your strength and valor, you don't brag at all.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Yes, thank you very much. But you're such a humble man, Sir Draug. Despite your strength and valor, you don't brag at all.

Draug: Oh, I'm not that strong.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: No, Sir Draug, you are a hero. I'm from the countryside, so I wasn't wise to the details before. But now that I'm traveling the lands and hearing stories about the previous war, I'm continually impressed. They speak of Sir Draug the hero, who repelled all of his foes with his impenetrable defense!
(If Kris is female)
Kris: No, Sir Draug, you are a hero. I wasn't wise to the details before, because I came from the countryside. But now that I'm traveling the lands and hearing stories about the previous war, I'm continually impressed. They speak of Sir Draug the hero, who repelled all of his foes with his impenetrable defense...

Draug: Well, rumors are often exaggerated.
Kris: Sir Draug, I'll do my best every day to get close to your level!
Draug: Well, enthusiasm is good. Work hard, Kris.

Second conversation

Kris: Sir Draug, I'd like to ask you something. Can you teach me your legendary technique?
Draug: Legendary technique? I only know of normal techniques.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Sir Draug, you are even more humble than I thought. You're a legendary hero, yet you still won't boast at all... Sir Draug, I've heard the legends about the previous war. Like how you took on hundreds of enemies without so much as flinching.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Sir Draug, you are even more humble than I thought. You're a legendary hero, yet you don't seem to boast at all... Sir Draug, I've heard the legends about the previous war. Like how you took on hundreds of enemies without so much as flinching...

Draug: Y-yeah. That sounds greatly exaggerated...
Kris: And then, with a swing of your lance, you blew the enemy army away to the skies.
Draug: Wait, what?
Kris: Then, to finish them, you took flight and with a strike of your lance, sent them flying far from Archanea.
Draug: No no, wait a minute. That's complete nonsense.
Kris: Truly. I don't think it's something a man could do. Unless that man is Sir Draug...
Draug: No no, I can't do it either. Kris, I'm happy that you hold me in high esteem, but those legends aren't true at all. They've been exaggerated beyond belief. Are you truly suggesting I grew wings and that's how I took flight...?
Kris: There's no need to be so modest, Sir Draug. You know such an amazing technique, but you won't even admit it... Sir Draug, please teach me your technique!
Draug: ... ...I think we've a misunderstanding here.

Third conversation

Kris: Sir Draug, about the training for your legendary technique...
Draug: Oh yes. I asked you to lift up ten men with your little finger... How did it go? You understand it's impossible now, right?
Kris: Yes sir, it is impossible for me right now.
Draug: Isn't it? Do you understand now, Kris? The difference between legend and reality?
Kris: Yes. No matter how hard I try... I can only lift three people...
Draug: W-what...!?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I am still no match for you, Sir Draug... But, if I continue training, I'm confident I'll reach your level someday. Sir Draug, I shall do my best. Until the day I can be on par with a legendary hero like you!
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I am still no match for you, Sir Draug... But, if I continue training, I'm confident I'll reach your level someday. Sir Draug, I shall do my best. Until the day I can be on par with a legendary hero like you...

Draug: ... Those legends aren't real... Hey, Kris, wait! I need to explain something to you!

Kris and Marisha

First conversation

Marisha: Hey, you're Prince Marth's personal knight, aren't you?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Yes, that's right. My name is Kris. And you are?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Yes, that's right. I am Kris. And you are?

Marisha: I'm Marisha. There's something I wanna know. About my dear prince... Prince Marth.
Kris: Your dear prince? Well, he is a prince, but...
Marisha: You see, men are such disgusting creatures, but Prince Marth is totally different. He reached out to me, gently, with his comforting eyes. He even promised to marry me, right in front of Granny...
Kris: Really? I find that difficult to believe...
Marisha: Oh, I remember when I close my eyes. As I was being pursued by bandits, and cried for help... Prince Marth came gallantly galloping to my rescue riding a white horse...
Kris: My liege doesn't ride a white horse.
Marisha: Let's not fuss over the details. Oh yes, where should we hold our wedding? Prince Marth might want it in Altea, but I want Granny to see me in a wedding dress... And then, after the wedding... We'd look up at the night sky from the castle's balcony, just the two of us... And I'd say "Isn't it beautiful?" Then he would whisper into my ear, "Not nearly as much as you are..." And then, and then, we'd kiss gently under the moonlight... Eeeeeek! Silly Marisha!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Um... I'm sorry to interrupt at such an important part, but--
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Um... I'm sorry to interrupt at such an important part, but...

Marisha: Ah! Please stop, Prince Marth. I'm so embarrassed!
Kris: Prince Marth recently got engaged...
Marisha: B-but, if you want to, then I... Squeee!
Kris: She isn't listening at all... I suppose I'll just let her be.

Second conversation

Marisha: How awful...! Sniff, sniff. He was just toying with me.
Kris: Oh yes... I've heard the story. You told Sir Jagen you were going to marry Prince Marth and asked to meet him privately. It's no surprise you made Sir Jagen furious...
Marisha: But, Prince Marth looked at me with such sparkling eyes. And even Granny was fooled, too... Ohh... Prince Marth played with my pure, innocent heart...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: What? No, that's not true. Stop making such outrageous claims. I can't let you spread false rumors about my liege.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: What? No, that's not true. Stop making such outrageous claims. I can't let you spread strange rumors about my liege.

Marisha: But, it was my first love... Sniff, sniff.
Kris: Don't cry... All right, come on. I'll buy you a pastry, so please stop crying.
Marisha: Don't treat me like a kid. I'm a grownup! ...The pastry has to be sweet, got it?
Kris: You do want it, don't you?
Marisha: I like sweet pie, like Granny used to make...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: All right. I'll do what I can. So please cheer up.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: All right. I'll do what I can. So cheer up, okay?

Marisha: Kris... Thank you. You're on my side, aren't you?
Kris: Huh?
Marisha: You're right. What matters now is how Prince Marth and I feel about each other! I won't give up just because that old sack of bones won't allow it. Thank you, Kris. I'll do my best!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: ...Argh, how do I fix this mess now?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: ...Oh dear, how do I fix this now?

Third conversation

Marisha: Hello Kris.
Kris: Oh, Marisha. I hear you've stopped sneaking into Prince Marth's room. That's one less thing for me to worry about.
Marisha: Yes. Actually, I've been wondering. How should I handle my feelings for Prince Marth?
Kris: I see you finally understand. You let your imagination run wild... It's time to face reality, like an adult.
Marisha: I'm already an adult!
Kris: I felt the same way back when I lived in my village. But, now that I've become a knight and fought all these battles... I see clearly. I was a child back then. I hadn't seen enough of the world.
Marisha: Is that so?
Kris: Yes, you're still young. You should think carefully about your life. You will continue to mature and gradually become a much more charming woman.
Marisha: Kris... Thank you, Kris.
Kris: I'm just glad you understand.
(If Kris is male)
Marisha: Say, Kris... Where would you like to hold our wedding?
Kris: What?
Marisha: Prince Marth is out of my league, but you're strong and kind... Maybe you could be my prince instead. When I'm afraid in battle, you whisper to me "It's all right, I'm here by your side." And then you embrace me tightly... Eeeeeek! Silly Marisha!
Kris: All right, all right. Come back when you're an adult.
Marisha: Enough already, you're always treating me like a kid! I'm already a grownup! A few years from now, I'll be super pretty and it'll be too late for you to slave for my attention!

Catria and Kris

First conversation

Catria: Greetings. You are Prince Marth's Royal Guard... Kris, correct?
Kris: And you are Dame Catria of the Macedonian Whitewings...
Catria: Just Catria is fine, thanks. We're comrades, so I'd be happy if we could talk normally between us.
Kris: All right. I'd like that too. We've already fought together for a while.
Catria: That we have. I've seen you battle many times. You fight with peerless devotion to protect Prince Marth... Just as I'd expect from Prince Marth's Royal Guard.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I'm honored. Thank you for your praise. I've watched you fight, too. You're incredibly powerful. I admire you as a warrior.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I'm honored. Thank you for your praise. I've watched you fight, too. You're incredibly powerful. I admire you as a fellow female warrior.

Catria: Ha... you embarrass me.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: In the coming battles... I bet we'll fight together many more times. I'm counting on you.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: In the coming battles... I believe we'll fight together many more times. I'm counting on you.

Catria: Yes, likewise.

Second conversation

Catria: Kris, about that last battle... I'm sorry. ...You had to save me.
Kris: It's fine, we're comrades after all. But you left yourself wide open in battle. That's not like you. Did something happen?
Catria: N-no... I just lack experience.
Kris: That's not true. If you fought with your full strength, you wouldn't need my help at all.
Catria: ...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: That reminds me. Sometimes I'd see you just staring off into the distance. Were you watching Prince Marth?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: That reminds me... Sometimes I'd see you just staring off into the distance. Were you watching Prince Marth?

Catria: ...Ah! N-no. It isn't like that! I was, uh...
Kris: You don't need to hide it, Catria. Prince Marth is a great man, after all. Everyone is fighting in this army because they admire Prince Marth. I'm no different. You feel the same way, don't you?
Catria: Y-yeah... That's right.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: For your sake as well, Catria, I must do my best as a Royal Guard. I will work become much stronger. For Prince Marth, for you, and for all...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: For your sake as well, Catria, I must do my best as a Royal Guard. I will work my hardest. For Prince Marth, for you, and for all...

Catria: Kris...

Third conversation

Catria: Say, Kris. Haven't you been overdoing it lately?
Kris: W-what do you mean?
Catria: I admire you for so fervently protecting Prince Marth, but you've been pushing yourself beyond your limits...
Kris: ...Catria. It looks like I couldn't hide it from you after all. Our enemies are becoming stronger. Protecting Prince Marth is not easy. However, I promise you this: no matter what happens to me, at least Prince Marth will be...
Catria: I'm not worried about Prince Marth, I'm worried about you. If you surrendered your life, even if to protect him... ...I'm sure he would be distraught.
Kris: That's... Yes. You're right. I might have been taking things too far.
Catria: No matter what happens, I'm here if you need help. We're comrades, after all.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Got it. Thanks, Catria. You have my gratitude.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Got it. Thanks, Catria. I'm glad you're here for me.

Catria: It's okay. You've already helped me too, after all... Hey, Kris...
Kris: Hm?
Catria: You see, there's something that was bothering me for a long time... Something I couldn't tell anyone. A forbidden feeling... A terrible burden deep within my chest, and I could do nothing to alleviate it... I hated it... It was horrible.
Kris: If you want to talk about it, I'll listen.
Catria: Thanks. But right now... I feel a little better. I believe it's probably thanks to you.
Kris: Me?
Catria: You have always been by my side. We'd talk and laugh together... We'd talk about Prince Marth and about each other... And as we did... Little by little, my pain lessened. As time passes, then maybe, someday... I'll be able to forget it entirely...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Huh? I don't really get it...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Huh? I'm sorry, but I don't really get it...

Catria: That's fine. You don't need to. Anyway, thank you Kris...

Warren and Kris

First conversation

Kris: Oh, Warren. Where did you go? I haven't seen you around for a while...
Warren: To the forest.
Kris: Forest?
Warren: I'm a hunter, after all.
Kris: Huh? C-could you come back here?
Warren: ...Huh, oh sorry. You weren't finished speaking...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Yes. I'm glad you understand. I thought I said something to offend you.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I'm glad you understand. I thought you didn't like me.

Warren: Nah. It's just that I'm used to being alone. I'm not good at talking...
Kris: I see. But, I heard you're acquaintanced with Dame Catria?
Warren: Yeah... A long time ago, I treated Catria's pegasus after an accident.
Kris: I see, so that's how you two met.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Dame Catria told me. That you're a blunt, but gentle... Wait, what? He's gone again... I must have said something wrong after all.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Dame Catria told me. That you're a blunt, but gentle... Wait, what? He's gone again... Oh dear, does he not like me after all...?

Second conversation

Kris: Hello, Warren.
Warren: Oh, so it's you.
Kris: Can we talk like before? I want to know more about you. We're comrades-in-arms, after all.
Warren: ...Sure, I don't mind.
Kris: You said you're a hunter. So, how is a hunter's life? I'm from the countryside as well, but I spent all my time training with my grandfather...
Warren: ...
Kris: Y-you don't like talking to me, do you?
Warren: Nah, that ain't it. Sorry for giving you the wrong idea. But, I'm not used to talking. I dunno how to start...
Kris: For instance, did you always hunt alone?
Warren: Yeah, always alone. I'd hunt small game in the forest, but sometimes I'd ascend the snowy mountains to catch the big ones... If a blizzard came, I'd dig a hole and wait there until it stopped snowing. For days even...
Kris: What did you do to pass the time?
Warren: Nothing at all. Just wait.
Kris: Staying alone, doing nothing for days...? I don't think I'd be able to stand that.
Warren: That's because I'm used to being alone. My usual life is like that too.
Kris: Don't you have a family?
Warren: Nope. I live alone in the forest. I hunt what I need in the forest, and live in a hut deep inside. If there isn't any business... I spend years without seeing anyone.
Kris: But, don't you feel lonely?
Warren: Catria asked me that too, back then... But I don't really know what feeling lonely means. I've been alone as far as I remember. Being alone was a given. So, I never felt anything about it.
Kris: I see...
Warren: Even if everyone else disappeared from this world... It wouldn't change a thing for me. And on the other hand, if I were to disappear from this world... It wouldn't change a thing for the world, either.
Kris: You're mistaken, Warren. We're comrades. If you were to disappear, I would be sad.
Warren: ...
Kris: So, don't disappear suddenly.
Warren: ...Don't worry. I don't plan to.

Third conversation

Kris: Warren, what are your plans when this war is over?
Warren: Same as before. Live as a hunter.
Kris: I see...
Warren: ... But... My feelings might have changed.
Kris: Hm?
(If Kris is male)
Warren: It's something I've never felt before... I feel like I'll have a hard time parting with you guys once this war ends. Kris, I want to talk to you all, my comrades, again. That's how I feel.
(If Kris is female)
Warren: It's something I've never felt before... I feel like I'll have a hard time parting with you once this war ends. Kris, I want to talk to you again. That's how I feel.

Kris: Warren...
Warren: We stuck together for a long time. I believe I've gotten to know why people feel lonely. People don't feel lonely because they're alone... but because they've become alone. Parting from a precious companion feels lonely. That's what I've learned...
Kris: And that's why I'd like to meet you again. After this war is over. Let us meet again and again.
Warren: Yeah... let's.

Cord and Kris

First conversation

Kris: You are... Sir Cord, right?
Cord: Oh, you know about me?
Kris: Huh? Yes, I do.
Cord: I see, you show some promise. Even though Bord and I look completely different, people get us mixed up all the time. It kinda bothers me.
Kris: Yes, I think I can understand that.
Cord: True, we're both mercenaries from Talys, and we're both woodcutters.
Kris: I see you talk alike, too.
Cord: Yeah, well I guess. But we're totally different. For instance, err... That's right, our faces! I've got the more handsome face, doncha agree?
Kris: Handsome...?
Cord: Yeah, take a goood look at my face. He can't deny it either. You, too, remembered I was Cord 'cause I'm more handsome, right? If you remember Cord's the handsome one, then you'll know who's who right away!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Y-yeah...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I-indeed...

Second conversation

Cord: That Bord can be a really nosy dude... A long time ago, when I was about to pummel ten bandits... He kept butting into my business, saying ten was too much and that I should stop.
Kris: But, Sir Bord's advice sounds reasonable. Fighting ten by yourself is rather...
Cord: Yeah, but y'see. The village was being ransacked. I didn't know that village. But I betcha, there were people living in peace there, just like in my village. And just thinking about those damn bandits crushing the people and their peace... I couldn't let that happen. You know that feeling, doncha?
Kris: Yes, I know it well. I too would not allow the bandits to do harm.
Cord: Oh, so you do get it. I could get along with you. Too bad I can't say the same of Bord.

Third conversation

Cord: But y'see, that Bord is really an annoying dude... Even if I wanted to, I can't get rid of him. He's always been my pal, see.
Kris: Because you recognize each other's worth.
Cord: Nonsense. You're kidding me, right? When we meet, we fight all the time. ...But, even that dude has got one good point. His camaraderie.
Kris: Camaraderie...?
Cord: Yeah, that's right. To him, long-time comrades are just like family--no, above family even. He wouldn't regret putting his life on the line for his friends. That's why he can't help but meddle in my matters. He'd never turn his back on his friends. No matter what. If something were to happen to me, he'd be there for me. That's why I can be so rash.
Kris: As I thought. You really do recognize each other's worth.
Cord: N-nonsense. Were you even listening to me?

Linde and Kris

First conversation

Kris: I don't believe we've been introduced. I am Kris, Prince Marth's Royal Guard.
Linde: I am Linde, daughter of Pontifex Miloah.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Pontifex Miloah? ...Is he famous?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Pontifex Miloah? ...I-I bet he's famous, right?

Linde: Wow, you don't know Father?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: No, I don't... Sorry. Please forgive my ignorance-- I come from the country. Though I'm sure he's a great man.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Sadly, no... Sorry. I come from the country, so I'm not aware of many things... Though I'm sure he's a great man.

Linde: He is. There's not a soul in Archanea who doesn't know Father. He was a wonderful pontifex, respected by everyone. I've always wanted to be like him...
Kris: I see. He sounds like someone I'd like to meet. Is he in Archanea right now?
Linde: ...He passed away. Killed by the Dark Pontifex, Gharnef.
Kris: I see... My condolences.
Linde: It's fine. Don't worry. What about your family?
Kris: I don't have one anymore. I used to have my grandfather, but... he's gone, too.
Linde: Oh. I'm sorry...
Kris: No, it's fine. How should I put it...? It's a draw? We're square?
Linde: We're even?
Kris: Yes, that works.
Linde: Tee hee... You're funny. Very well, Kris. It was nice meeting you.
Kris: The pleasure is mine..)

Second conversation

Kris: Hey, Linde. You're just in time.
Linde: For what?
Kris: I found some strawberries on the mountain, so I picked them. They look good, don't they? Have some.
Linde: Pardon? These are strawberries?
Kris: Don't tell me you've never eaten one?
Linde: O-of course I have. But, the strawberries I ate back in the palace with Princess Nyna... They were bright red and beautiful. These are misshapen and the color is off.
Kris: Really? The ones you find in the wild usually look like this, you know.
Linde: They do? I was raised in the palace, so I'm not familiar with nature...
Kris: ...Sorry for being a bumpkin. Oh well. Here, try one.
Linde: Ah, thank you. ...Hm...
Kris: How is it?
Linde: It's good...! It tastes much better than the ones I had in the palace.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I know, right? That's because it's fresh.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I know, right? Living in the countryside has its perks, I'll have you know.

Linde: You're amazing. Say, can I go with you to the mountain next time?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Kris: I don't mind, but... It's dangerous to climb a mountain dressed like you are.
Linde: How so?
Kris: ...Well, your robe looks rather thin. If it got stuck in the tree branches, it might get torn. And if that happened...
Linde: Oh...
Kris: ...
Linde: Hey, why are you looking away like that!? Y-you're... making me feel undignified! Father gave me this sacred robe. I'm not ashamed of it!
Kris: I-I see. I'm sorry.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Why, of course. I'd love to go together.

Third conversation

Linde: Here, Kris. I want to give you this.
Kris: This is, um...?
Linde: It's a good-luck charm. This kind is very popular in the palace town. It's supposed to protect its wearer from tragedy.
Kris: Huh? Are you sure you want to give me something so expensive? ...If you want more strawberries, I can just go get some for you.
Linde: Hey... Do you really think I'm giving you this in exchange for strawberries? I'm giving it to you because you always protect me in the battlefield.
Kris: Right, but... We're in this together, aren't we? I wouldn't have been able to get this far without your help, either.
Linde: ...Kris. Why do you protect me?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Neither of us has a family anymore... That's why. So when I saw you fighting... I not sure how to say it, but I knew I had to protect you.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Neither of us has a family anymore... So when I saw you fighting... I not sure how to say it, but I knew I had to protect you.

Linde: I see. I feel the same way... And that's why I wanted to protect you. It's funny the way things turn out. I had no idea it would happen... And yet, we both came to feel this way after fighting together...
Kris: Linde...
Linde: S-so, that's why I'm giving you this. You face the most danger in battle. So stop being shy and take it!
Kris: I see. In that case, I'll gladly accept it.
Linde: You had better cherish it too!
Kris: Yes, of course I will.

Palla and Kris

First conversation

(If Kris is male)
Kris: Hah...! Hah...! Haah! Guh... Agh... I'm feeling... diz...zy...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Hah...! Hah...! Haah! Guh... Did I... go too far...? I'm feeling... dizzy...

Palla: Kris!? A-are you all right?
Kris: Dame Palla... I-I'm okay. Sorry you had to see that...
Palla: You look unsteady. This isn't like you... What were you doing?
Kris: The truth is... I thought I wasn't... training hard enough. So I decided to train five times harder...
Palla: How sudden... Then it's no wonder you collapsed.
Kris: I-it's okay. "When training is hard, train even harder." My grandfather taught me that.
Palla: That'll do you no good. You're pushing yourself too hard...! Here, sit down. Let's take a break.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: No, I can still--
(If Kris is female)
Kris: No, I can still...

Palla: Let's. Take. A. Break.
Kris: ...Yes ma'am.
Palla: Yes, that's more like it. You won't get strong if you force yourself to train too hard. You need to understand your limits. Here's some water. Please have some.
Kris: T-thank you...
Palla: I'll get more if you need it, just ask. But that's enough training for now. Do you hear me?
Kris: Yes...

Second conversation

Kris: Ah, Dame Palla. Thanks for helping me the other day.
Palla: No, I was interfering... Please forgive me. I can't help but care for people... It's a terrible habit of mine. My sisters told me to stop doing it, too...
Kris: That reminds me. Out of the three sisters of Macedon, esteemed heroines of the previous war... You're the eldest of them, right, Dame Palla?
Palla: Yes. Since our parents died when we were young, I had to accept the task of raising my sisters.
Kris: I see. Dame Palla, you are, if I may say it, a very kind person.
Palla: Thank you... I've never thought of it that way. Oh, by the way, Kris... I was wondering. Is your left shoulder all right?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Huh? Oh... You're right, it is feeling rather stiff.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Huh? Oh... You're right, it is feeling rather stiff...

Palla: I knew it. Don't you think you're overdoing it?
Kris: It's fine. My grandfather used to tell me, "If your body hurts, heal it with training."
Palla: Oh my gosh, that's... It would be terrible if you hurt yourself by training too hard. Show it to me.
Kris: D-dame Palla...?
Palla: Here... stay still. If I massage your shoulder like this, it'll relieve the pain.
Kris: T-thanks...
Palla: Just try to relax...
Kris: Y-yes...!
Palla: Kris? Are you turning red...?
Kris: N-no! T-that's just, um...!

Third conversation

Kris: Dame Palla. Thanks for helping me the other day... again.
Palla: I hope I wasn't cramping your style...
Kris: Not at all. You were a great boon. Thanks to you, I can become even stronger. And be of greater assistance to Prince Marth.
Palla: Kris, you really do your best for Prince Marth, don't you?
Kris: Yes. You speak of my duty and my desire.
(If Kris is male)
Palla: I see... You're a good knight, Kris...
Kris: D-dame Palla...!?
Palla: Oh, sorry. I wasn't thinking... Do you not like being patted on the head?
Kris: No, it's just that... You surprised me.
Palla: I ended up thinking of you as a little brother... Now that I think about it, I've been treating you like I do my sisters.
Kris: Haha, you reminded me of grandfather, back in my childhood. Dame Palla, if it isn't a problem, could you... Help me with my training from now on, too? If you're around, I feel like I can work even harder.
(If Kris is female)
Palla: I see... You're a good knight, Kris. I feel a strong affinity with you. Perhaps because your feelings towards Prince Marth are very similar to our feelings for Princess Minerva...
Kris: Dame Palla, if it isn't a problem, could you... Help me with my training from now on, too? If you're around, I feel like I can work even harder.

Palla: Yes, gladly.

Bord and Kris

First conversation

Kris: You are... Sir Bord, right? Or are you Sir Cord?
Bord: Hey, I'm Bord. Look properly before you talk next time!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I see. Sorry. You two look alike, after all.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I see. Sorry. You two look alike, after all...
Bord: Alike? Hey, gimme a break. I'm completely different from that dude. True, we're both mercenaries from Talys, and we're both woodcutters.
Kris: I see you talk alike, too.
Bord: ...Well, I guess. But we're totally different. For instance, err... That's right, our faces! I've got the more handsome face, doncha agree?
Kris: Handsome...?
Bord: Yeah, take a goood look at my face. He can't deny it, either.
Kris: ...?
Bord: Just remember Bord's the handsome one! Then you can't go wrong. Simple! So yeah, don't get us mixed up again.

Second conversation

Bord: That Cord can be a really reckless dude... A long time ago, back when we fought together, a nearby village was about to be ransacked by bandits or something. That time, he tried to save the village alone.
Kris: How noble of him.
Bord: But there were too many of them. There's no way he could've beat them alone. But he just dove right in without thinking. He's such a pain in the ass.
Kris: And what did you do, then?
Bord: Hm? Well, I could've just let him get himself killed, but... I'd probably have trouble sleeping at night, if I did that.
Kris: So you protected the village together with Cord.
Bord: Well, I couldn't just leave him. It's not like I had a choice. I can't abandon a comrade. You know that feeling, doncha?
Kris: Yes, I'd never abandon a comrade either.
Bord: Oh, so you do get it. I could get along with you. Too bad I can't say the same of Cord.

Third conversation

Bord: But y'see, that Cord is really an annoying dude... Even if I wanted to, I can't get rid of him. He's always been my pal, see.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Somehow, you both recognize each other's worth.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Tee hee. Somehow, you both recognize each other's worth.
Bord: Nonsense. You're kidding me, right? When we meet, we fight all the time. ...But, even that dude has got one good point. His sense of justice.
Kris: Sense of justice...?
Bord: That's right. He's got a real strong sense of duty. You know what I mean? If he sees somebody weak being bullied, he'll help them... That kinda courage. He's got that. Even this time, he volunteered at the first opportunity when he heard Prince Marth was in trouble. 'Cause he's like that, it makes me feel like tagging along too.
Kris: I see... So in the end, you really do recognize each other's worth.
Bord: N-nonsense. Were you even listening to me?

Julian and Kris

First conversation

Kris: Sir Julian, I see you're heading out. May I ask where to?
Julian: Just as I'd expect from Prince Marth's knight. You caught onto me quickly. The truth is, I was going to secretly gather information. I want to find clues as to where Lena might be.
Kris: I see... Sister Lena was your special someone, wasn't she?
Julian: Yeah. I used to be a common thief, but thanks to her I turned over a new leaf. I don't care what happens to me. I just want to see her smile again...
Kris: Sir Julian... If you'd allow me, please let me help too.
Julian: Huh? Is that alright?
Kris: Yes. That desire to do something for those precious to you is something I know well.

Second conversation

Julian: Say, Kris. There's something I really want to ask of you. I wonder if you could teach me how to fight?
Kris: How to fight? But Sir Julian, you're a thief... Rather than battle, you'd do better staying in the rear, opening chests and doors...
Julian: Yes, you're right. But, I want to become stronger. Strong enough to protect Lena.
Kris: Sir Julian...
Julian: Ever since Lena disappeared, I've looked frantically for her everywhere... I even asked people who chanced to see her. According to them, when Lena was taken by the heretic bishops... she had a sad look on her face.
Kris: What does that mean...?
Julian: They didn't put her to sleep. Or use some spell to control her. That time, I wasn't far from her. Had Lena screamed, I'd have noticed for sure. But, she didn't. That's because she knew I'd be no match for them even if I rushed out to help. Were I a much stronger man, Lena wouldn't have been kidnapped. Knowing that, I just can't forgive myself...
Kris: ...

Third conversation

Kris: Sir Julian. It's good to train, but don't overdo it...
Julian: Thanks. But, I don't want to fail again. So...
Kris: Sir Julian, I understand why you'd blame yourself for Miss Lena's tragedy. But, I was thinking. Don't you think Miss Lena wouldn't seek your help even if you were stronger?
Julian: Come again?
Kris: It's possible that... Miss Lena just didn't want to see you in danger. So she chose to sacrifice herself instead of seeing someone else getting hurt... I don't know her, but that's the kind of woman I imagine from you. Am I off the mark?
Julian: ... Mmm... Yeah, that's just how Lena is. Always, she's thinking of others.... Instead of herself...
Kris: Sir Julian... I'll help you. Let's bring Miss Lena back together. After listening to your story, I now wish to meet Miss Lena.
Julian: Why, of course. If you meet Lena, I'm sure you'll get along with her too, Kris. She's as kind as an angel, after all...

Matthis and Kris

First conversation

Matthis: Oh no... What am I going to do?
Kris: Hm? Do you need help, Sir Matthis?
Matthis: I'm worried. I'm so worried, I can't stand still...
Kris: Worried about what?
Matthis: Oh, thanks for listening. You see, I'm can't stop thinking about what's happening to Lena.
Kris: Sister Lena... She disappeared with the others, didn't she...?
Matthis: Lena is my little sister. My cute lil' sister has been kidnapped. Our enemies are planning something wicked for them. There's no doubt about that. When I think about what they're doing to Lena, I just can't help worrying... Ahh, I can't stand it!
Kris: I understand, Sir Matthis. But you should try to calm down...
Matthis: There's no way I can calm down! She's as pure as the holiest maiden! And she's really cute, too. And she's been kidnapped... Do you have any idea what she must be going through? Of course you don't! As her big brother, I can't let anything happen to her!
Kris: Wait, Sir Matthis! ...Just where are you going?
Matthis: ...To find Lena. Except I got no clue where she is. ...But, I'm not about to stand here and just do nothing, mark my words...!
Kris: Not again...

Second conversation

Matthis: Kris, I'd like to ask you something. I wonder if you could help me get stronger?
Kris: You want to become stronger?
Matthis: Me just standing here worrying isn't going to help anyone and I haven't the foggiest idea where Lena even is... But, once I DO learn where she is, as her big brother, it's my duty to save her! That's why I want to become strong.
Kris: I see. That's a smart idea.
Matthis: Think about it. What if another man saved Lena? If that happened, she would probably start falling for him, right?
Kris: Uh-huh...
Matthis: So, if some creep tricked her and then dumped her... Never! As her big brother, I can't let that tragedy befall her!
Kris: S-sir Matthis!
Matthis: As her big brother, I must become stronger so I can protect her from all the creeps lurking out there! I'll become the strongest man alive, for Lena's sake!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Uh, all right. I'll help you out, if I can.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Uh, all right. I'll do my best to help you, if I can.

Matthis: Good, I'm counting on you. ...But, I'd prefer it if it didn't involve too much physical exercise. I don't want to get hurt, see...

Third conversation

Matthis: Oh, if it isn't Kris!
Kris: Sir Matthis... What happened to your training?
Matthis: Oh, I gave that up.
Kris: Already...?
Matthis: Well, it was impossible from the beginning. Everyone has things they can and can't do. The truth is, I don't think I could ever beat you. Actually, that's what I wanted to ask you about. Kris, I'd like you to do it for me.
Kris: Do what?
Matthis: I'm sure I can trust Lena to you!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: W-wait...
Matthis: You've helped me out a bunch. I can tell you're a nice guy. So, I wouldn't mind being your big brother.
Kris: No, thanks.
Matthis: Don't be shy, little brother. Come on, let's rescue Lena together! Though you'll be doing most of the work!
(If Kris is female)
Kris: B-but I'm a woman...
Matthis: Oh, I'm not bothered about that.
Kris: You might not be, but...
Matthis: You've helped me out a bunch. I can tell you're a nice girl. So, I wouldn't mind being your big brother.
Kris: No, thanks.
Matthis: Don't be shy, little sister. Come on, let's rescue Lena together! Though you'll be doing most of the work!

Wrys and Kris

First conversation

Wrys: Oh, if it isn't Sir/Dame Kris.
Kris: Sir Wrys.
Wrys: Thank you kindly for saving me from that predicament the other day.
Kris: Don't mention it, I'm the one always getting myself wounded... I'm sorry for the trouble.
Wrys: It's no trouble at all. Your daily growth always enthralls me, Sir/Dame Kris.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: T-thank you.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: T-thank you. You're making me a little embarrassed...

Wrys: Hoho, looking at you brings back memories of the children at the monastery in Altea.
Kris: There's a monastery in Altea...?
Wrys: Yes, I built a small monastery after the last war. There are many delightful children there.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Heavens! That's admirable...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Oh my gosh! That's wonderful...

Wrys: The children there grow stronger with every passing day, living in harmony with nature. Just like you, Sir/Dame Kris.
Kris: That's very kind of you.
Wrys: Yes, even your naughty sides are akin...
Kris: Eh? ...Sir Wrys?
Wrys: Oh, do excuse me.

Second conversation

Kris: Sir Wrys.
Wrys: Oh, hello Sir/Dame Kris.
Kris: You were talking about the monastery in Altea, the other day...
Wrys: Oh yes. I did tell you about that, didn't I?
Kris: Could you tell me a bit more about it, if you don't mind?
Wrys: I see... Alright. There's a bountiful sea near the monastery. The children often go play there.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: That... sounds rather fun.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Sounds fun.

Wrys: Yes. But since they're so energetic... they injure themselves often.
Kris: Hmm and that's when you heal them with your staff, right Sir Wrys?
Wrys: No, I don't do that.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Pardon? Why...?
Wrys: People are born with the power of healing their own wounds. A staff's power is merely a supplement to that natural healing. And, besides, children need to learn that getting hurt is dangerous... That is what I humbly believe.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Pardon? Why not...?
Wrys: Why are you befuddled, lass? People are born with the power of healing their own wounds. A staff's power is merely a supplement to that natural healing. And, besides, children need to learn that getting hurt is dangerous... That is what I humbly believe.

Kris: Yes. You have a point, indeed.
Wrys: That's why I only heal them when it's absolutely required.
Kris: I see... Sir Wrys. Thank you for this good story.
Wrys: 'Twas nothing, lad/lass. If you like stories like these, I can tell them to you anytime.

Third conversation

Kris: Ah, Sir Wrys.
Wrys: Hello Sir/Dame Kris.
Kris: Um, about the other day...
Wrys: You speak of the monastery?
Kris: Y-yes. There weren't many children around my age back in my village. So, as embarrassing as it might be, I'm deeply curious about the children at the monastery.
Wrys: Oh. So that's the reason. Hmm... Sir/Dame Kris, might you have anything I could write on?
Kris: Ah, yes. Please use this.
Wrys: Thank you. Then, if you'll excuse me. ... Alright, done. Sir/Dame Kris, please take this.
Kris: Is this... a map?
Wrys: Yes. I've drawn directions to the monastery.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Oh!
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Oh my!

Wrys: If you wish, please come and visit at least once in your lifetime. I'm sure the children will be happy.
Kris: Yes. Thank you very much!
Wrys: Another naughty boy/girl...
Kris: Eh? Sir... Wrys?
Wrys: Oh, do excuse me.

Kris and Ogma

First conversation

Kris: Sir Ogma.
Ogma: Kris, huh...? What's wrong? You look serious.
Kris: There something I'd like to ask you. Please let me... learn from you, Sir Ogma.
Ogma: ...I don't understand. You're a full-fledged knight, are you not? What do you seek from a mere mercenary?
Kris: Sir Ogma, not only are you a hero from the previous war... But you saved Princess Yuliya and Prince Jubelo from an enemy castle, all by yourself. I don't think you're a "mere" mercenary.
Ogma: Sorry, but find somebody else. I'm not someone who teaches others. ...I'm a man who can do nothing but fight.
Kris: Then... I want you to fight me. Could I ask you to spar with me, one-on-one?
Ogma: What...?
Kris: My grandfather used to tell me this: The best way of knowing somebody is fighting them. Through battle, you get to understand not just your opponent's techniques, but also their personalities and upbringing.
Ogma: ...I see. Your grandfather is correct. But, you realize this right? Once I start... I'm not going to play around.
Kris: ...I am prepared.
Ogma: ...Very well. Come.

Second conversation

Kris: Sir Ogma...
Ogma: What's wrong? Want another match? Our last battle... didn't reach a conclusion, after all.
Kris: No, it was my loss. I know you were holding back when you took me by surprise... Otherwise, I doubt my body could stand in a battlefield ever again... It was a good lesson. The way you fight is completely different from a knight's...
Ogma: Dirty fighting... you mean?
Kris: ...Perhaps I would have called it that, had you asked me before this. However, I couldn't do anything against that dirty fighting... Your fighting style, Sir Ogma, isn't that of a regular soldier. It's...
Ogma: That of a gladiator... One who fights to the death for the pleasure of others. Blinding his opponents' eyes with sand, crushing their heads with a sword soaked in grease and blood... Roaring like a beast, crushing his opponents' flesh even when they move no longer... I was thrown into a place like that when I was still a kid, and battled my way through it.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: That's... That kind of place is probably even more terrible than a battlefield, isn't it...?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: That's... ...I can't even begin to imagine. That place was probably even more terrible than a battlefield, wasn't it...?

Ogma: It's a world you're better off not knowing. I don't wish to remember it either... But, you understand now, don't you? I am not a man you'd want to become...

Third conversation

Kris: Sir Ogma!
Ogma: ...Kris, huh? What the hell are you planning?
Kris: What do you mean?
Ogma: Don't play dumb. Lately, in the battlefield, you've...
Kris: Yes. I've been watching you and learning from your fighting.
Ogma: I'm sure I already told you. I am a mercenary, and an ex-gladiator. I am a far cry from the chivalry you seek.
Kris: Indeed... I thought so at first, too. That your strength lay in the fact you've fought your way through gladiatorial... lawless battles. But, having watched you long and well in hopes of stealing your techniques, I finally understood the truth. That you possess the same heart as us knights.
Ogma: The same heart, you say?
Kris: Yes. There is somebody inside your heart... And you fight for that person. Am I right?
Ogma: ...
Kris: I don't know if it's loyalty or some other feeling... But you're offering your body and soul for that person. Much like a holy knight. And that's your true strength.
Ogma: ...
Kris: My grandfather used to say this: "He who fights for himself is strong indeed". "But, the truly strong are those who can fight for someone else"... Battle tells more about a person than words. Sir Ogma. I respect you, for you're a gladiator... With the heart of a knight.
Ogma: ...
Kris: Therefore, I shall stay by your side. Please let me learn from you.
Ogma: ...An uninvited apprentice, is it? Do as you will. Kris: Yes, thank you very much!

Kris and Yuliya

First conversation

Yuliya: ...
Kris: Hm?
Yuliya: ...
Kris: It feels like I'm being watched...
Yuliya: ...
Kris: Princess Yuliya?
Yuliya: Kya... Kris! What are you doing!? Such display of rudeness, before the princess of Grust no less!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Please forgive me, Princess Yuliya. Is there anything you wish me to do?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Forgive me, Princess Yuliya. Is there anything you wish me to do?

Yuliya: Er, w-well... Uhh...
Kris: Yes?
Yuliya: ...No. Nothing!
Kris: ... ...What was that all about?

Second conversation

Yuliya: ...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: She's staring at me again...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I-it feels like I'm being watched again...

Yuliya: ...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: But if I say something to her, she'll just get mad again... I should probably just leave her be.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: If I say something to her, she might get mad again... I should probably just leave her be.

Yuliya: ...
Kris: All right then, time for training...
Yuliya: ...H-hey, wait!
Kris: Princess Yuliya. What were you doing?
Yuliya: Huh? Did you notice I was watching you?
Kris: Err, kind of.
Yuliya: S-since when?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Since before I started training.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Since before I started training...

Yuliya: What!? You noticed me, but you were ignoring me the whole time! Very well then, I care nothing for you!
Kris: ... ...What does she want from me?

Third conversation

Yuliya: ...
Kris: ...Er. Princess, will you grace me with your time today?
Yuliya: Kris...
Kris: Hm?
Yuliya: Pay attention, and do not laugh. I have something I must say. I want to thank you...
Kris: Thank me? For what?
(If Kris is male)
Yuliya: Don't you remember? When Lang was about to take us from Grust... you tried to save us. You said this to Prince Marth: "Sire! I can still save them! Please, just give me the word!!"
(If Kris is female)
Yuliya: Don't you remember? When Lang was about to take us from Grust... you tried to save us. You said this to Prince Marth: "Sire! Give me the order, and I'll get them safely back at once!"

Kris: Yes, I did...
Yuliya: After Lorenz died... we had no allies. There was no one we could turn to. It felt like the whole world was against us. But, when I heard your words... I knew there were still people who would fight for us... Thanks to your words I was able to stay strong, even when Lang kept us imprisoned... Kris: Princess Yuliya...
Yuliya: So, um... Thank you. T-that is all. Go now.
Kris: Don't tell me... You were watching me all this time because you wanted to thank me?
Yuliya: Nngh...! S-silence! That's not it at all! It is unbecoming of royalty to speak to peasants. S-so...
Kris: Oh, forgive me for causing you indignity. But Princess, I think it'll be fine for us to talk normally from now on.
Yuliya: From now on...? You are willing to continue speaking with me?
Kris: Of course. Unless you don't want to, Princess.
Yuliya: H-hmm... If that is your wish... If you desire to speak to me in the future, I shall allow it.

Kris and Jubelo

First conversation

Jubelo: Unh... Sniff...
Kris: Prince Jubelo? What's the matter?
Jubelo: Oh, you're Kris...
Kris: You're trembling like a leaf... Can you tell me what happened? Don't tell me the enemy...
Jubelo: N-no, that isn't it. It's just that... I... I get scared when I think of battle... And when I remember I'll have to step in the battlefield again, I can't stop trembling...
Kris: Prince Jubelo...
Jubelo: Y-you see, I have never been in a battle before... I'm scared. Of battle, of dying... I'm very, very scared...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Prince Jubelo, everyone fears death. There is no shame in that. Fight alongside me from now on. If we're together, we'll reassure each other.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Prince Jubelo, everyone fears death. There is no shame in that. Stay by my side from now on. If we fight together, we'll reassure each other.

Jubelo: Y-yes... Thanks.

Second conversation

Jubelo: Say, why are you so strong, Kris?
Kris: Me, strong? No, I'm still far from strong...
Jubelo: But, from my viewpoint, you're amazingly strong, Kris. And not only strong in battle, but in heart, too...
Kris: In heart?
Jubelo: We're at war, right? We might suddenly die in the battlefield tomorrow... And yet, you're fighting bravely, Kris. How can I become strong like you, Kris?
Kris: Hmm... People grow stronger when they have something to protect.
Jubelo: Something to protect...?
Kris: Yes. I am one of Prince Marth's Royal Guards. My duty is to protect him. If it's to protect him, I'll fear no battle. This strength isn't just mine, I can become strong because Prince Marth is there.
Jubelo: I see...
Kris: Do you have someone you want to protect, Prince Jubelo?
Jubelo: Me? Who do I want to protect...?

Third conversation

Kris: Prince Jubelo, I see you're enthusiatic. Are you practising today, as well?
Jubelo: Oh yes. Since my body is weak, I need to make more effort than the others. The training routine you've taught me is really strict, Kris, but...
Kris: Don't force yourself too much. It'll hinder you in battle.
Jubelo: Yes, thank you. Kris, I'm not afraid anymore.
Kris: Prince Jubelo...
Jubelo: Of course, I'd be lying if I said I'm not afraid of battle at all, but... More importantly, I want to become stronger. Until now, I couldn't do anything by myself... I've always been relying on someone else. Lorenz, Yuliya, Ogma, and you, Kris... I was just being protected by everyone. I want to become able to live on even if everyone is gone. I want to become much stronger... I want to protect those who protected me.
Kris: A wise decision, Prince Jubelo. You've become strong.
Jubelo: Thanks. It's all thanks to you, Kris. I'll keep on doing my best from now on!

Kris and Sirius

First conversation

Sirius: Hm, you are...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Kris. And no need to tell me... You're Sir Sirius.
Sirius: Indeed. ...Hmph, you're a rude fellow. That murderous hatred... Is it directed at me?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: My name is Kris. Sir Sirius... I presume?
Sirius: Indeed. ...Hmph, you're rather rude. That murderous hatred... Is it directed at me?

Kris: That's right. I don't trust you one bit. First of all, you hide your face and identity. "Sirius" isn't even your real name, is it?
Sirius: ...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: What makes me most suspicious is your stance. You never leave any openings. I can tell you're a warrior of great renown.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: What makes me most suspicious is your stance... You never leave any openings. I can tell you're a warrior of great renown.

Sirius: You speak of my defensive stance...? That's perfectly natural in a battlefield.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Don't change the subject. You are no mere knight! Who the hell are you?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Don't change the subject. You are no mere knight! Tell me. Where are you from?

Sirius: What will you do if I don't answer?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Prince Marth is very kind. However, I know there are scoundrels who would take advantage of his kindness. I shall protect Prince Marth from these villains, at all costs.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Prince Marth is very kind... However, I know there are scoundrels who would take advantage of his kindness. I shall protect Prince Marth from these villains, even if it costs me my life.

Sirius: ...It seems we won't be able to solve this with words alone.
Kris: My thoughts exactly.
Sirius: Then, here I come.
Kris: Wha!? You're too... fast.
Sirius: Be at peace. It was a blunt strike.
Kris: Kuh...

Second conversation

Kris: Sir Sirius!
Sirius: Sir/Dame Kris, was it?
Kris: I was most rude to you the other day. Please forgive me! I can see from the way you fight... that you are a true knight.
Sirius: No, the fault is not yours. Please raise your head. I deliberately provoked the fight so that I could test you. It is I who was at fault. I wish to ask for your forgiveness.
Kris: Wha...! Sir Sirius, what are you--
Sirius: Your actions the other day were virtuous, and befitting of a knight. I know a man who brought forth great tragedy because he was unable to do what you did.
Kris: Sir... Sirius?
Sirius: Sir/Dame Kris. I'll answer the question you asked me the other day. My true name is--
Kris: No, Sir Sirius. Do not concern yourself. I'm sure I'd be better off not knowing your true identity, right?
Sirius: Ah!
Kris: I've come to understand you, thanks to that encounter. Indeed, there is no way someone Prince Marth accepted could be an evil man.
Sirius: ...Sir/Dame Kris.
Kris: Sir Sirius. I am counting on you from now on.
Sirius: I am in your debt.

Third conversation

Kris: Sir Sirius.
Sirius: Sir/Dame Kris.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: It looks like you're maintaining your weapons.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: You are... maintaining your weapons, correct?

Sirius: That's right. My weapon once broke during a mission... Since then, I've been ever vigilant.
Kris: Oh? So even someone as skilled as you made a simple error like that once...? Was it some kind of special mission?
Sirius: Yes. I had to escort someone... or rather, help her escape into exile. I had to protect a lone bishop, together with a few other soldiers... as we crossed a bandit-filled mountain. That was the plan.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: That sounds quite difficult.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: So you had to defend and escape... That sounds rather difficult.

Sirius: Yes. The main problem was that there were simply too many enemies. If my mighty lance were to break, it'd be all over.
Kris: I see... that's true.
Sirius: Well, that's one reason... But there's another reason I need to take care of my weapon.
Kris: Hm? And what would that be?
Sirius: I can't risk a surprise attack from a knight overzealous in his devotion to his liege.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Gah... I'm sorry about that.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Oh, y-you mean... I'm really, really sorry about that...

Sirius: Haha, how rude of me.
Kris: ...Wait! There's someone here...!
Sirius: Sir/Dame Kris, behind you!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: What...!? Kuh...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Wha--Oh no...

Sirius: Look out!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: ...Aah!! ...Did... you save me? It seems the assailant has fled. I am in your debt. If you hadn't helped me, I'd be... Ah! Sir Sirius, your mask...!
(If Kris is female)
Kris: ...Aah!! ...You... saved me. It seems the enemy managed to escape... I'm sorry. If you hadn't helped me, I'd be... Ah! Sir Sirius, your mask...!

Sirius: ...I want you to forget what you just saw. We'll be even, then.
Kris: I understand.

Castor and Kris

First conversation

Castor: Ooh... I'm in trouble. I'm in big trouble...
Kris: Sir Castor? What's the problem?
Castor: Oh, Kris. The truth is, because of me mother's sickness, I'm short on money...
Kris: Oh! That's troublesome indeed. This isn't much, but please accept this gold.
Castor: Unh, this is pretty much the first time we've met and yet you're so kind to me... Thank you so much!
Kris: Don't mention it, helping those in trouble is a knight's duty.
Castor: Kris... No, Lord/Mistress Kris! You have saved me life. I offer me life to you!
Kris: ...While I appreciate the thought, you don't need to be that happy...
Castor: No! Unless you accept me life as your own, I don't know how I can calm down!
Kris: ...I understand your feelings, Sir Castor. However, I am a mere knight. If you want to offer your life, then you should swear fealty to my liege, instead.
Castor: B-by liege, you mean...
Kris: Yes, Prince Marth. Then, without delay...
Castor: P-please wait a moment. I'm, er, not quite ready......Ooh, er... What did I tell Prince Marth that time I got gold from him again...?
Kris: Sir Castor?
Castor: Uwah, no, it's nothin'! I-I'm sorry, I just remembered I have some urgent business to take care of, so please excuse me!
Kris: Ah, Sir Castor? Didn't you need the gold...?

Second conversation

Kris: Sir Castor.
Castor: Eeyaah!? Lord/Mistress Kris!?
Kris: I couldn't give you gold the other day. Please take this.
Castor: Oh, yes, thank you so much. ...Then, if you'll excuse me.
Kris: Come, let us go together to Prince Marth.
Castor: Eeeeeerr... Ah... Alright, I'll be honest. I have no trouble pledgin' meself to you, Lord/Mistress Kris. But Prince Marth is too, er, noble, and it makes me nervous...
Kris: I see... Then, how about Sir Jagen?
Castor: Si-Sir Jagen!?
Kris: Yes, I'm sure he'll have no objections. Which reminds me, I think there was a young man who offered his life to Sir Jagen the other day. Apparently, he said his grandmother was sick, and so was in desperate need of gold...
Castor: E-eh...
Kris: So, when Sir Jagen gave him gold, he offered his life in return... That's a heartwarming tale, isn't it...?
Castor: It sure is, hahaha...
Kris: Therefore, I'm sure he'll accept you kindly, Sir Castor. Here, come with me...
Castor: I-I-I'm sorry, I have another urgent business... Either way, I'm givin' this back to you!
Kris: Sir Castor...?

Third conversation

Kris: Sir Castor. It seems to me that you've been behaving oddly since the other day... Don't tell me you're hiding something from Prince Marth and I/me and Prince Marth?
Castor: Eeeeeerr... Of course not, hahaha... I'm sorry, Lord/Mistress Kris. Truth be told, I'm terrible at makin' pledges in front of people...
Kris: I see. Then, how about this...? You make your pledge inside your heart and protect Prince Marth from the shadows, together with me?
Castor: Y-yes, that sounds good to me!
Kris: Excellent! Then, you'll be training together with me, starting tomorrow.
Castor: T-trainin'?
Kris: Yes. We wake up before dawn, then first we run ten laps around the base, followed by a thousand sword swings...
Castor: E-err... I did say I would offer me life... But I'm not doin' that for Prince Marth...
Kris: ...... ...What did you just say?
Castor: N-no, nothing, I was jokin'! Long live Prince Marth! Me life is Prince Marth's!
Kris: How wonderful. You're just the kind of person I thought you were, Sir Castor.
Castor: T-things have gotten rather complicated...

Caeda and Kris

First conversation

Kris: Hmm? What is this? It smells heavenly...
Caeda: Oh my, Kris. What good timing. I tried to make stew with some leftovers. Would you like to try some?
Kris: Princess Caeda, you've been cooking?
Caeda: Yes. I do hope Marth enjoys what I've made.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Oh, that is nice of you. Then, if you'll allow me... Ah! It's amazing! It tastes really good.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Oh, that is nice of you. Then, if you'll allow me... Ah! It's delicious! It tastes really good.

Caeda: I'm glad you like it. Do you think Marth will like it too?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Without a shadow of a doubt. It's delicious, after all. Though you're the princess of Talys, you're awfully skilled at cooking.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Without a shadow of a doubt. It's delicious, after all. Though you're the princess of Talys, you're awfully skilled at cooking...

Caeda: Well, I may be a princess, but my motherland Talys is just a small island nation surrounded by the sea. I played around outside a lot during my childhood days. I hear they often called me a tomboy.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I never would have guessed. Oh, by the way...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I see... I never would have guessed. Oh, by the way...

Caeda: Hmm?
Kris: Some time ago, you were our opponent during our training, Princess. I could scarcely believe a princess would fight us... I still remember my amazement at the time.
Caeda: Oh yes. That time, everyone begged me to quit, but... I suppose I truly am a tomboy, after all?

Second conversation

Kris: Hmm, a heavenly smell again... Princess Caeda, are you cooking again?
Caeda: Yes. Today, I made candy. I was thinking of sharing some with everyone... Here. This is for you, Kris.
Kris: Thank you. Such an elaborately-crafted candy... I'm sure Prince Marth will be touched, too.
Caeda: Heehee, thanks.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: ...Maybe I should learn how to cook, too. If I could cook as well as you, Princess, then maybe I'd be able to eat tasty food anywhere, anytime.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: ...Maybe I should learn how to cook, too. If I could cook as well as you, Princess, then perhaps I could become a bit more lady-like, maybe...?

Caeda: Are you bad at cooking, Kris?
Kris: Sadly, yes. My grandfather told me when I was a child that my cooking tasted like steel...
Caeda: Oh my gosh.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Many times I'd attempt to cook, but... Grandfather always stopped me. When I told him I would become the world's strongest, he'd tell me: "I'm sure you can do it." But when I said I wanted to make dinner, he'd say: "If you must insist, then don't call me grandfather"... just like that.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Many times I'd attempt to cook, but... Grandfather always stopped me. When I told him I would become the world's strongest, he'd tell me: "I'm sure you can do it." But when I said I wanted to make dinner, he'd say: "If you must insist, then you must strike me down first"... just like that.

Caeda: Oh my.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Well, since I'm a man, I figured I'd survive even if I couldn't cook. But, it doesn't stop me being envious of those who can cook like you, Princess.
Caeda: Then, would you like me to teach you?
Kris: Really?
Caeda: Yes, certainly. Cooking is a good talent for men, too.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Since I was raised like a boy... I don't know how to anything girly. But, I think it'd be wonderful if I could make candies and share them with others as presents...
Caeda: Gosh. Kris, don't tell me you have eyes for someone?
Kris: N-no, there's no such person!
Caeda: You don't need to be embarrassed. We're both girls, remember.br> Kris: Eh-heh, I'm no good with this sort of thing...

Third conversation

Kris: Princess Caeda, it smells good.
Caeda: Oh, then it should be done already. Could you please open it?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Ahh... Amazing, I can't believe I made this candy...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Wow... Amazing, I can't believe I made this candy...

Caeda: It's very well done, Kris. Come, let's taste it.
Kris: Yes!
Caeda: Then, I shall have one. Oh! This is, how should I say...
Kris: W-what is it?
Caeda: ... ...Kris, don't worry about this. I believe people mature by repeating mistakes...
Kris: You don't need to be so polite. You can just say it's bad... D-does it really taste like steel...?
Caeda: A-a little. No, perhaps not just a little, but... It's alright, Kris. I'm sure you'll do it well someday.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Yes m'lady, I'll do my best. You have my thanks, Princess.
Caeda: Your thanks is undeserved. I, too, enjoy the time I spend with you. Say, Kris. Stay my friend forever. Someday, when this war is over and peace returns... Wouldn't it be nice if we could spend our time... like this, the three of us...?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Yes, I'll do my best. You have my thanks, Princess. It brings me great joy learning from somebody like you...
Caeda: Your thanks is undeserved. I, too, enjoy the time I spend with you. You may put up a serious front, but you can be rather cute in your own way... Kris, I like you.
Kris: Princess...
Caeda: Say, Kris. Stay my friend forever. Someday, when this war is over and peace returns... Wouldn't it be nice if we could spend our time... like this, the three of us...?
Kris: Truly...

Barst and Kris

First conversation

Barst: Hey, you!
Kris: ...Hm?
Barst: Unless I'm mistaken... You're Kris, aren't you? Yeah, you gotta be!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: ...Well?
Barst: Oh yeah! I'm Barst. Say, you're in pretty good shape!
Kris: Uh, yeah...
Barst: It makes sense, since you're a knight and all. You must have had a good teacher!
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Wh-what are you doing...? Why are staring at me like that?
Barst: Whoops, sorry! I'm Barst. By the way, your body is... Are you really a woman?
Kris: What!! What are you trying to say!?
Barst: Nothing at all! Sorry! I worded it badly!
Kris: ...Then, what did you mean to say?
Barst: ...I was talking about your body build. Not surprisingly, it's befitting of a knight.
Kris: Is that so?
Barst: Yeah. I can see it clearly. You must have had a good teacher!

Kris: My grandfather was my teacher. Thanks for the compliment. But, you could tell that?
Barst: Yeah. I did all sorts of things after the War of Shadows, y'see.
Kris: Wait, the War of Shadows? ...You mean to say you've fought alongside Prince Marth before?
Barst: Yeah, I did. And?
Kris: Ah! Pardon my rudeness, um, Sir Barst...
Barst: Just call me Barst. See you later, Kris!

Second conversation

Kris: Barst. I want to ask you a question.
Barst: Oh, if it ain't Kris! What is it? Ask away.
Kris: You said you did all sorts of things after the War of Shadows. What things did you mean?
Barst: Oh, that. I don't mind telling you, but... Why do you want to know?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I was raised by my grandfather and I've always aspired to be a knight. I've never once considered doing anything else with my life. But you aren't a knight, so...
Barst: ...I got you curious, huh?
Kris: Yes, a bit.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: From an early age, I've been raised to be a knight. However...
Barst: ...Did I make you curious?
Kris: Yes. I don't think I'll abandon my knighthood. However, if I could hear from somebody who walked another path, then perhaps I...

Barst: I see. Well, it ain't a very interesting tale, so don't complain to me later, OK?
Kris: Don't worry about it. My grandfather used to say, "Nothing we do is in vain," after all.
Barst: Heh, you really did have a good teacher! All right. Listen up then, Kris. First I got to talk about Talys. Then there's my stint in Archanea... Wait, I need to fit in my pirating days too...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: P-pirating!?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Huh, p-pirating!?

Third conversation

Barst: Kris! It's been a while!
Kris: Ah, Barst. You told me your life story last time.
Barst: Yeah. I ended up talking your ears off didn't I?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: There are so many different ways to live your life... I've had a lot to think about.
Barst: Oh, I made you think. Ain't that funny! ...So. What'd you decide to do with your life?
Kris: I will protect Prince Marth. No matter what. If I protect him, he will change the world... That's how I feel.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: There are so many different ways to live your life... That's what you made me feel.
Barst: Oh, I made you use your noggin. Ain't that something! ...So. What'd you decide to do with your life?
Kris: I will protect Prince Marth. No matter what. If I protect him, he will change the world... That's what I believe.

Barst: ...Good answer! That's why I can trust my back to you. Damn, I want Cord and Bord to hear what you just said!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Why?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Why... that in particular?
Barst: They've been in the mercenary business too long. I want to show them how to live when it's peaceful.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Yes... I see. I wouldn't mind telling them. But, that's not what you really want, is it?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Yes... I see. I wouldn't mind telling them. But, you... don't actually want me to, do you?
Barst: What do you mean?
Kris: You want to teach them the ways of life by living your own life as an example. I can see it written on your face.
Barst: ...Hahaha! You got me! You're right, Kris. All right, let's end this battle already... Then I can move on to the next part of my life story!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Yes, let's do just that!
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Yes! Let's do this together!

Kris and Rickard

First conversation

Kris: You are Sir Julian's...
Rickard: Buddy, yep! That's me, Master Rickard! Now your turn, who're you...?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: My name is Kris, one of Prince Marth's Royal Guards...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I am Kris, one of Prince Marth's Royal Guards...

Rickard: ...Meh, a knight. Then you've no business with me, right? Bye!!
Kris: Ah, Sir Rickard?

Second conversation

Kris: Cough, cough.
Rickard: ...What the, what're you doing? You've burnt it to a right crisp.
Kris: Sir Rickard? My apologies, no matter how hard I try I just can't cook very well...
Rickard: I can't watch this torture anymore. Gimme that, I'll do it for you.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I-I see. Thank you.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: T-thank you...

Rickard: Alright... there. But, why are you tryin' to cook, even though you're a knight? Can't you just leave it to an underlin'? Kris: No, you see... I want to learn how to do it properly. Besides, there's no superior or subordinate when it comes to cookery.
Rickard: Heh... ...I thought all knights liked bossin' us around, but I see there are some like you, too.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Hm?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Oh? What did you mean?

Rickard: It's nothin'. Hey, look, it's burnin' again.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Oh... damn!
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Ah... oh dear!

Third conversation

Kris: Sir Rickard. About the food you made last time...
Rickard: Oh, how'd it go down?
Kris: When I served it to the squad, they were pleasantly surprised... Though I told them the truth straightaway.
Rickard: You didn't hafta. You did most of the work anyway, Kris.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Nonetheless... You really saved my hide. Thanks.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Nonetheless... Thank you so much for your assistance.

Rickard: I-I didn't do it for your sake, see. It's just that I'm good with my fingers, so I can do things a knight can't.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Indeed. Sir Rickard, could you please teach me again when you're available?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Indeed. Sir Rickard, I'd love it if you could teach me again.

Rickard: ...You're a weirdo. Fine. Nobody likes eatin' burnt food, anyway.

Frey and Kris

First conversation

Kris: Sir Frey, can I ask you one thing?
Frey: What is it, Kris?
Kris: I want to learn about Gharnef... the Dark Pontifex.
Frey: Alright. I'll tell you what I know... However, why come to me when there are people far more knowledgeable about this subject than I?
Kris: That's because you're a teacher to us new knights, sir.
Frey: Well, originally I wasn't well suited to teaching, but... Because of how things turned out, I ended up being your lecturer.
Kris: Is that so? It seemed like you were used to teaching...
Frey: Not at all. It's just that Sir Cain showed more strength and skill... And Sir Abel, while competent, had already left the knighthood. Meanwhile, Sir Draug and Sir Gordin don't quite have the personalities fit for an instructor.
Kris: So that's why you were designated as instructor, Sir Frey? Was it hard teaching?
Frey: Yes, it was. Not all pupils are good learners. I knew it was a troublesome task, but I hate seeing others struggle... So I figured I could do that much.
Kris: So you're sort to carry the burden yourself, Sir Frey.
Frey: Haha, perhaps it's as you say.

Second conversation

Frey: ...And then, Prince Marth triumphed against Gharnef's Imhullu spell by using Starlight. Starlight was the only magic capable of felling Gharnef.
Kris: I see...
Frey: The sun is about to set. Shall we end today's lecture now?
Kris: Yes, thank you.
Frey: Good. Then, we'll continue tomorrow or... Ugh...
Kris: Sir Frey! Are you all right?
Frey: I'm sorry, I twisted my ankle. It seems I've gotten old.
Kris: ...Ah!? Sir Frey, what is that scar...?
Frey: ...It's an old wound. It just hurts sometimes, it's no big deal.
Kris: But... If that's not a big deal, then what is? It looks terrible... How did you come to suffer such a wound? Please tell me!
Frey: I see your habit of asking me anything and everything has struck again... Oh well, this wound... is from way back.
Kris: You mean, from the previous war...?
Frey: No, even before that... This is a wound I suffered so that the young Prince Marth could escape...

Third conversation

Kris: Sir Frey! I spoke to Sir Jagen. He told me about your wound...
Frey: ...
Kris: You took that wound when Prince Marth, still a child, was forced to escape Altea Castle... In the jaws of death, surrounded by enemies, you alone became a decoy, in order to protect Prince Marth... And then... You took such a serious wound, it's shocking that you're still alive...
Frey: ... I believe the enemy struck me down and left me for dead. Actually, it was a miracle that I was still alive... After countless days at the brink of death, I came about, but without my memories, and so lived a long time as another identity... My memories lost and my body wounded... Until I had fully recovered and returned to Prince Marth, well... a few years had already passed...
Kris: Why were you the decoy, Sir Frey?
Frey: It wasn't just me. Everyone there was ready to become a decoy as well. However... That's right. It was just like when I became an instructor. I felt it'd be a pity if any of the others had to be sacrificed. So, I figured I could do that much...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: No way...!
(If Kris is female)
Kris: No way...! How could you even think that...?

Frey: Kris...?
Kris: Sir Frey... your resolve is laudable. However... Please take more care of yourself. Think of your own happiness too, Sir Frey. Otherwise, you'll be...
Frey: Kris... I'm sorry. For making you, my student, worry... I am a failure of a teacher.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: From now on, I'll share half of your burdens, Sir Frey. Please allow me to carry them. Please... Don't carry everything by yourself, Sir Frey...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: You can say that again. Sir Frey, you're always overfilling your pails with other peoples' burdens. Though my words will probably do nothing to convince you otherwise...
Frey: It's in my nature, after all.
Kris: In that case, from now on, I shall share half of your burdens, Sir Frey. Please allow me to carry them. Please... Don't carry everything by yourself, Sir Frey...

Frey: Kris... Very well. Let's do it your way.
Kris: You promised.
Frey: Yes, I promise.

Norne and Kris

First conversation

Norne: Aaaah!
Kris: Miss Norne, are you all right?
Norne: I'm sorry, Kris. I can be such a klutz sometimes... Oh dear, I dropped my luggage. I should go pick it up...
Kris: Let me help you.
Norne: T-thanks. Oh, Kris. Since we're comrades, could we drop the formalities? We're about the same age and it'd be nice if I could talk normally to new knights like you.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Hm... all right. Yeah, your way's best. Is this okay, Norne?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Hm... all right. Yeah, I'd prefer it your way too. Is this okay, Norne?

Norne: Yeah, that's the spirit. All right then, Kris! I'm countin' on you.
Kris: Likewise.

Second conversation

Norne: ...So, I met Prince Marth when he was escapin' from Altea. Bein' an archer, I decided it was my duty to fight for him.
Kris: So that's what happened. At that time, I was still studying day and night back in my village...
Norne: What village might that be, Kris?
Kris: Sera. It's fairly small.
Norne: Huh, Sera village? You mean the one just over the mountain from my own village?
Kris: What, really?
Norne: Hold on. Say Kris, did you... Did you ever carry firewood to our village when you were little?
Kris: Carry firewood to other villages? Yes, I did it for my grandfather when I was a child. He would have me do it sometimes instead of my usual marching training.
(If Kris is male)
Norne: I see, it all makes sense now. So the strong little boy was you. You were rather famous back in our village. How nostalgic! To think that I'd meet you again here... When you were little, you had a pair of very determined eyes. I see. So it was you... (If Kris is female)
Norne: I see, it all makes sense now. So the strong little girl was you. You were rather famous back in our village. How nostalgic! To think that I'd meet you again here... When you were little, you had a pair of very determined eyes. I see. So it was you...

Third conversation

Norne: Hey, do you remember, Kris? There was one time when you played with us, as children.
Kris: ...I'm afraid I don't. All I remember of my childhood days... was my grandfather pushing me to my limits.
Norne: I see. That's a shame... I volunteered to join the Altean army because I had met you.
Kris: Really? You did?
Norne: You might not remember it, but I do. One time, I got lost in the forest and was cryin'... until you came for me. You seemed to be worried yourself, but you did your best to comfort me. "It's okay, I'm here. I'll show you the way back." You were really reliable.
Kris: Did I say that? I'm afraid I've no sense of direction...
Norne: Hee hee, yes, that's right. You were lost too, so we didn't know what to do. But, you stayed by my side until the adults found us...
Kris: Yes, I think I'm starting to remember now. So that was you...
Norne: You've always said you wanted to become an Altean knight, right? When I met you, I decided I wanted to serve my country, too. So, I'm here now thanks to you.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I see. Life is full of unexpected turns...
Norne: And... I thought that if I joined the Altean army... then maybe I'd meet you again...
Kris: Huh?
Norne: Ah... E-er... N-nothin'. Maybe I said too much... We're just talking about our childhood... so don't mind me.
Kris: O-okay.
Norne: Ahaha... Kris, once this war is over, come visit my village again. I'll treat you.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I see. Life sure is strange...
Norne: Ahaha, truly... Hey Kris, once this war is over, come visit my village again. I want us to walk that old path again.

Samuel and Kris

First conversation

Navarre: Don't move...
Kris: Ah!?
Navarre: I don't care who... Tonight, my killing edge hungers for blood...
Kris: Wha...
(If Kris is male)
Navarre: You there... Draw your sword or I'll have your head.
Kris: ...Nngh... Then, I won't hold back...!
Navarre: Eh...? H-hang on, don't hurt me...!
Kris: What the? Don't tell me...! Sir Samuel!?
(If Kris is female)
Navarre: But... I'll let you live... I'll turn no blade of mine against a woman... Especially not one as beautiful as you.
Kris: B-beautiful? What the? Don't tell me...! Sir Samuel!?

Samuel: Huh? How curious. You had me figured.
Kris: I knew it!
Samuel: What you reckon? I looked exactly like him didn't I? It's pretty nifty for getting out of sticky situations as well, since everybody runs in fear once they catch a glimpse of me! I love it when the girls squeal too.
Kris: That facade again...? I don't think Prince Marth will be happy to find you're just playing around.
(If Kris is male)
Samuel: Oh, sorry 'bout that.
(If Kris is female)
Samuel: Oh, sorry 'bout that, but y'see... I'm not just playing around. I was serious when I said you're beautiful, Kris.
Kris: Wha...!? P-please stop joking! If you'll excuse me!
Samuel: Oh, hey Kris. That look of embarrassment on her face was priceless. So she does have a cute side too!

Second conversation

Samuel: That girl's sweet, but she's already taken. That one's too young. Way outta my range. That other one's kinda... too strong, I guess? But I could get used to that...
Kris: ...You've been muttering to yourself for quite some while... What about?
(If Kris is male)
Samuel: Hm? Oh, I was just thinking there's a ton of cute girls in this army. Say, you're a man aren't you? I'm sure you've noticed.
Kris: Huh? I never really thought about it...
Samuel: C'mon, you aren't fooling anyone. Who's your favorite? I won't tell anyone, so spill the beans.
Kris: I'm a Royal Guard. Love and I don't really...
Samuel: You're really straight-laced. Don't tell me you've never even held hands with a girl?
Kris: W-well, I've done that much...
Samuel: Haha, you're getting embarrassed. You're a real powerhouse in battle, so I thought you'd be hard to approach... But you've a cute side, too. Oh, I know, should I give you lessons on how to date girls?
Kris: H-how to date?
Samuel: Don't worry, I know. You haven't properly dated anyone yet, have you? Poor kid...! When I was your age, I had so many belles it was kinda distracting...
Kris: If-if you'll excuse me!
Samuel: Hey, Kris! ...He's gone. Did I tease him too much?
(If Kris is female)
Samuel: Hm? Oh, I was just thinking there's a ton of cute girls in this army.
Kris: Now that you mention it, I think you might be onto something. I can't believe I never noticed before.
Samuel: And, naturally, you're one of them, Kris.
Kris: ...Wha!? I-I am a mere knight, I discarded my womanhood long ago! I'm not cute or-or anything...!
Samuel: That reaction was pretty adorable, too.
Kris: Y-you jest! ...E-excuse me!!
Samuel: Heey, Kris! ...She's gone. Did I tease her too much?

Third conversation

(If Kris is male)
Samuel: Heey, Kris.
(If Kris is female)
Samuel: Heey, Kris baby.

Kris: ...
(If Kris is male)
Samuel: Say, you still angry? You're a funny guy, Kris.
(If Kris is female)
Samuel: Huh, you still angry? You're so innocent, Kris baby. But I adore that part of you too.

Kris: ...Oh no, I'm not angry anymore.
(If Kris is male)
Samuel: I see, good. Then, help me improve my mimicry, please!
Kris: ...Sir Samuel. Please tell me you're going to start copying his fencing, and not just his face. If that's the case, I can lend you a hand.
Samuel: You mean sparring? Well, I got no trouble with that, but take it easy on me, 'kay? I might, um, kick the bucket if you're too serious on me, Kris...
(If Kris is female)
Samuel: Oh, that's a relief. Then, you wanna go somewhere?
Kris: Sure... Will you accept my invitation for a sparring match?
Samuel: Sparring? Well, I got no trouble with that, but take it easy on me, 'kay? I might, um, kick the bucket if you're too serious on me, Kris baby...

Kris: ...We'll know when the time comes.
(If Kris is male)
Samuel: Eh? Say what? Kris, your eyes are kinda scary... You sure you're not angry? I knew it! You've got a grudge against me still, don't you?
Kris: ...I'm not angry. After all, I'm just a battle-hungry lunatic with no luck with women...
Samuel: Huh? C'mon, cut me some slack! I didn't go that far...
Kris: Now... Prepare yourself!
(If Kris is female)
Samuel: Eh? Say what? Kris, your eyes are kinda scary... You sure you're not angry? 'Cause you look really angry.
Kris: Teehee, why would I be angry...? Come over here!

Samuel: D-don't hurt me...! Gaaaaah!

Wendell and Kris

First conversation

Wendell: ...So, in other words, the Starsphere broke into twelve pieces and those pieces are the star shards. Each of them has a name and effect associated with one of the twelve constellations.
Kris: I see... Interesting. Lord Wendell, you really do know everything don't you?
Wendell: That's not true. I only know what Lord Gotoh taught me.
Kris: Lord Gotoh... But you know almost as much as he does, right?
Wendell: No... Not nearly that much. Lord Gotoh stands on an entirely different level to me.
Kris: Is that so?
Wendell: Yes. Sir/Dame Kris, what do you think about Lord Gotoh?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Let me see... He uses magic to talk to us from afar, and he appears in the sky without warning. I'd say he's a rather odd individual... Yeah, I think that sounds right. It would benefit us all if he could fight alongside us without being so showy and mysterious.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Let me see... He uses magic to talk to us from afar, and he appears in the sky without warning. I'd say he's a rather odd individual... Yeah, I think that sounds right. I would be happier if he could fight alongside us without being so showy and mysterious.

Wendell: G-good heavens... You go too far, Sir/Dame Kris. Do you understand how rude you sounded!? Lord Gotoh is like a deity to all us humans.
Kris: Really?
Wendell: Yes. I must tell you about him in proper detail...

Second conversation

Wendell: Sir/Dame Kris, do you know the story of the hero Anri?
Wendell: Kris: Why, of course. He was Prince Marth's great ancestor, and the first King of Altea.
Wendell: Yes, and the savior of the world who vanquished Medeus with the divine sword Falchion.... Anri received the Falchion from the Sage of the North... None other than Lord Gotoh himself.
Kris: So that's how... Then, that means Lord Gotoh saved our ancestors and, by extension, all of us.
Wendell: Yes, and during the War of Shadows, the one who guided Prince Marth and gave him the Starlight tome needed to defeat the Dark Pontifex Gharnef... That was, once again, Lord Gotoh.
Kris: S-so that's how! Then, that means Lord Gotoh saved Prince Marth's life, and therefore my own.
Wendell: Yes, yes.
Kris: But, there's something I don't understand. Why does he ask us to come to him? Since he can move around freely with his magic, he could come to us instead.
Wendell: Lord Gotoh has to test us. We must all be prepared to save this world, no matter what obstructs us. Anyone who is not worthy won't be able to wield the power Lord Gotoh offers. That is why a test is necessary.
Kris: I see. So Lord Gotoh has his reasons... He wasn't just a weird old man...
Wendell: Of course not.

Third conversation

Wendell: Sir/Dame Kris, I have told you how Lord Gotoh has saved Altea multiple times, but naturally, he has done far more than just that. The magic we study in Khadein... That magic was given to men by Lord Gotoh himself.
Kris: Magic itself...?
Wendell: Yes. Were it not for Lord Gotoh, there would be no magic in this world.
Kris: T-that's...! That is amazing beyond belief!
Wendell: Yes, indeed... Originally, Lord Gotoh gave magic to mankind in order to help us. He was saddened to see it later used as a tool for war...
Kris: Not just powerful, but benevolent too... I'm awestruck by his magnificence. Lord Gotoh is truly an astonishing person.
Wendell: Yes. Do you understand now?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Yes, I am ashamed of my past ignorance. Lord Gotoh... Forgive me for thinking you were just a weird old man...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Yes, I am ashamed of what I've said. Lord Gotoh... Forgive me for thinking you were just a weird old man...

Wendell: Yes yes, that's good of you. Lord Gotoh sees all. He has surely heard your words just now.
Kris: Thank you, Lord Gotoh! Please keep on protecting us!
Wendell: That's quite all right, he can hear you. You don't need to shout so loudly...

Caesar and Kris

First conversation

(If Kris is male)
Kris: Caesar... Oh, are you reading?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Caesar... Sorry, are you reading?

Caesar: I am. Kris... right? You're not disturbing me. It's a book I've read many times already.
Kris: You seemed to be engrossed in it... What kind of book is it?
Caesar: It's a book about tactics. As the leader of a group... I figured I should enhance myself. The platoon I lead is far smaller than an army, but tactics is still important.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Nonetheless... I felt my blood run cold in that battle. Your mercenary company was meant to be no match for a proper army, but it was like fighting a unit of elite one-man armies.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Nonetheless... I was in disbelief during that battle. Your mercenary company was meant to be no match for a proper army, but it was like fighting a unit of elite one-man armies.
Caesar: Though you still beat us in the end.
Kris: That's because... Prince Marth carefully selected our numbers and equipment and made the best preparations he could.
Caesar: Exactly.
Kris: Hm?
Caesar: The victor is often decided before the battle starts. Prince Marth prepared himself to win. We could not. That difference decided the outcome. The tactics used later were mere details.
Kris: Is that written in that book?
Caesar: Yes.
Kris: That sounds interesting... May I have a look?
Caesar: Sure. You can return it once you're done.

Second conversation

Caesar: Hey, Kris. How is the book going?
Kris: I started reading, but... There are many words I don't recognize, so I'm having trouble.
Caesar: Yes, I forgot to warn you. That book originates from another continent. It's no surprise you find it hard to read.
Kris: Where did you get it?
Caesar: Have you ever been to Warren?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: No. I know it's a port city, though.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: No. I know it's a port city, though...

Caesar: My base is in Warren. Ships from all over the world go there. I got the book as a reward for escorting a foreign ship... basically.
Kris: So you can understand their language?
Caesar: Yes, with no trouble. After all, mercenaries do more than just fight in wars. I often escort people, too-- all sorts of people.
Kris: You're quite knowledgeable... It appears there's more to a mercenary's way of life than I thought...

Third conversation

Kris: Do you have a family back in Warren?
Caesar: Yes... I have a little sister.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: A sister, how nice. Is she all right without you?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: You've a sister...? I'm sure she's really cute. Is she all right without you?

Caesar: Well, it's rather complicated, you see... My sister... is sick.
Kris: I see...
Caesar: Her life won't be in danger as long as she takes her medicine, but... The medicine is expensive. I couldn't pay for it with just the salary I earned at my old job in Warren, so I had to look for faraway work like this.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: ...Then you must return home alive, for your sister's sake as well.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: ...Then you must return home alive, no matter what, for your sister's sake too.

Caesar: Yeah. And I'm counting on you to make that happen, Kris.
Kris: Me?
Caesar: Kris, I believe you are the cornerstone of this army. It's not just because you're Marth's Royal Guard. It's pretty clear to anyone who sees you in battle. The way you fight will decide the outcome of this war... That's how I see it.
Kris: ...
Caesar: Suffice to say, Prince Marth isn't the only one relying on you. I know I'm asking too much, but... Kris, that is why I'll lend you my strength. In peace and in war.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: You have my thanks, Caesar.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Thank you, Caesar.

Caesar: No need for thanks. I am a mercenary... Ultimately, I only think of my own profit. So, don't be shy. Feel free to ask me if there's anything I can do for you.

Radd and Kris

First conversation

Kris: Radd, you used to be a mercenary from Warren, correct?
Radd: Yeah. I came with Caesar when he told me he accepted a job away from home. He's like a bro to me, so... I thought he'd appreciate it if I could help him, even a tiny bit!
Kris: You wanted to help Sir Caesar?
Radd: Yeah! I'd pull my load, earn some gold, and then... Oops, I nearly said too much.
Kris: Huh?
Radd: I almost forgot Caesar swore me to secrecy. So, I'm afraid I can't say any further.
Kris: I see, then I won't pry. However, I'll pray for your success.
Radd: Thanks. Kris, you're a nice guy/girl.

Second conversation

Radd: Hmm, hmmm...
Kris: Radd? What's wrong?
Radd: Hm? Oh, Kris? Nothing, it's just that I was reading a book Caesar recommended me earlier, but... ...it doesn't make a lick of sense to me.
Kris: What book were you reading? ...Oh, this? I've read this book. The Fundamentals of Tactics. It's a good book.
Radd: Oh! How convenient. Then, please teach me all about it! It'd help if you could summarize the entire contents in a single phrase, if possible.
Kris: That wouldn't benefit you at all. This is the kind of book you need to read again and again, until you understand it. It's no use just asking others and pretending like you get it.
Radd: Bah. You sound just like Caesar. ...Why does it feel as though I've gotten yet another bro?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: That said, I'll teach you if there's any part you don't understand. Feel free to ask me anything.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: That said, I'll teach you if there's any part you don't understand. You can ask me anything.

Radd: Uh-huh, got it. I'll do my best and give it a shot! One page a day...

Third conversation

(If Kris is male)
Kris: Radd, what are you planning to do once this war reaches its conclusion?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Say Radd, what are you planning to do once this war reaches its conclusion?

Radd: I'll return to Warren. By then, I should have saved up enough money.
Kris: I see. You refer to the secret from earlier.
Radd: Yeah... Hmmm... Well, I reckon it's alright to tell you, Kris. I want to buy medicine for Caesar's lil' sister.
Kris: ...Is she unwell?
Radd: Yes, and it's pretty serious. There's good medicine for her condition, but it's so expensive it's unreal. That's why I tagged along when Caesar said his next job took him far from home. Because Caesar's sister is like my sister.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: So that was it... But, why keep it a secret?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: So that was it... But why keep it a secret?

Radd: Caesar always told me. Fallible compassion and allies who try to take advantage of us... are things we must steer clear of. We're mercenaries, we can't afford trusting people. But Kris, you're special.
Kris: Radd...
Radd: Please don't tell anyone. I only told you because it's you.
Kris: Yes, got it. It'll be our secret.

Navarre and Kris

First conversation

Kris: You're the Scarlet Swordsman, Navarre...
Navarre: ...
Kris: Ah, please wait. There's something I must inform you. It's an order from Prince Marth...
Navarre: ...What is it?
Kris: Yes. Starting now, I am to fight alongside you in the coming battles.
Navarre: ...Why must I fight with you?
Kris: I don't know what Prince Marth has in mind, but it's probably related to the fact that you fight alone far too often... I believe he thought that you acting alongside someone would benefit our army as a whole.
Navarre: ...
Kris: Sir Navarre, it is an honor for me to fight alongside you, a hero of the previous war. I look forward to working with you!

Second conversation

Kris: Sir Navarre! So here you were.
Navarre: ...You again?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: We've been meeting often lately, be it marching or in the battlefield. We might be able to get along better than I expected.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Yes, it's me again. We've been meeting often lately, be it marching or in the battlefield. We might be able to get along better than I expected.

Navarre: ...
Kris: W-why are you looking at me like I'm just chasing after you...?
Navarre: ...What's your business with me?
Kris: Oh, yes. The truth is, I heard an unpleasant story the other day. That before you rescued Miss Phina, you used to be a bodyguard for bandits... Is there any truth in the story?
Navarre: ...Yes.
Kris: W-why!? Why would somebody of your caliber lend a hand to villainous cutthroats...?
Navarre: ...
Kris: Were you forced by circumstances? And therefore you had no choice...?
Navarre: ...There was no such thing. ...I'm no different from a bandit. I'm not like you.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: ...Sir Navarre. No, that's wrong. We are the same. You're in this army for Prince Marth's sake.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: ...Sir Navarre. No, that's wrong. We are the same. After all, you're in this army for Prince Marth's sake, are you not?

Navarre: ... ...Why do you think so?
Kris: I know it just by looking at you. I haven't been chasing you for nothing.
Navarre: ...
Kris: You aren't an evil person. However you've lived amongst bandits till now. And you were thus unwittingly dyed with evil. But you can still change that. I'm confident Prince Marth wishes that too. And if that's the case, I'm sure that's my mission.
Navarre: ...?
Kris: Sir Navarre, I'll insist and persuade you until you're an honest man again!
Navarre: Heh...
Kris: Did I say something funny?
Navarre: ...You're softhearted like Prince Marth.
Kris: What do you mean? Just like Prince Marth... Was that praise, I wonder? But... It was the first time I saw you smile, Sir Navarre.
Navarre: ... ...I'm going ahead.
Kris: Ah, please wait, Sir Navarre!

Third conversation

Kris: Sir Navarre, so we meet again.
Navarre: ...
Kris: Because you're near me in the battlefield, I can fight without worries. We might become good comrades, I say.
Navarre: ...I had no intention of teaming up with you.
Kris: I don't mind if you think that. But, I consider you a precious comrade of mine, Sir Navarre.
Navarre: ...
Kris: Anyway, I must train now. I'll see you again later...
Navarre: ...Wait.
Kris: Sir Navarre?
Navarre: ...Your right hand.
Kris: Eh?
Navarre: Your ring finger... looks to be injured. Get it treated... It'll be a hindrance in battle.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Huh? You're right. I was so focused I didn't notice... Wait... Eeh!?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Huh? Oh, you're right. I was so focused I didn't notice... Wait... Eeh!?

Navarre: ...?
Kris: Sir Navarre... I can't believe it, don't tell me... Were you worried about me?
Navarre: ...
Kris: Sir Navarre!! You've finally regained your rightful heart, have you not?
Navarre: ...You're loud.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I am deeply moved right now. My preaching of Prince Marth's justice and magnificence was fruitful!
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I feel so happy. My preaching of Prince Marth's justice and magnificence was fruitful!

Navarre: ...Be quiet.
Kris: Sir Navarre, let's keep on doing our best for Prince Marth's sake!
Navarre: ......

Phina and Kris

First conversation

Phina: Hey, what are you doing here all alone?
Kris: I'm getting some extra training in.
Phina: Hmm, don't you get tired from training all the time?
Kris: I need to do it to become stronger.
(If Kris is male)
Phina: Hmm... Hey, now that I've had a good look at you, you're not actually that bad-looking. But you don't have much of a fashion sense; you're just like Navarre in that way. Here, check me out. My clothes are cute, aren't they? See how they flutter in the wind? You won't be popular with the girls unless you're fashionable like I am.
(If Kris is female)
Phina: Hmm... Hey, now that I've had a good look at you, you're actually kinda cute. But you don't have much of a fashion sense; you're just like Navarre in that way. Here, check me out. My clothes are cute, aren't they? See how they flutter in the wind? You won't be popular with the boys unless you're fashionable like I am.

Kris: I'd rather focus on my training, thanks. Actually, I don't really like the way you dress...
Phina: What's wrong with the way I dress? Tell me! Don't you find it cute?
Kris: It's too thin and you're not properly covered.
(If Kris is male)
Phina: I'm not covered? Oh, so you like what you see, then? Kris, you rascal!
Kris: Um, no. That's not what I meant. I just thought it wasn't suited for battle...
(If Kris is female)
Phina: I'm not covered? Tee hee. Kris, you're such a serious girl. But I bet it wouldn't do you any harm to try dressing like me. After all, your chest is rather...
Kris: W-what about my chest...!? W-wait, don't look at me like that, you're embarrassing me...

Phina: Ohmigosh, are you embarrassed? Ooh! You're so cute!
Kris: ...I'm not cute. Excuse me.
Phina: Hey, wait a second!

Second conversation

Phina: Hey, Kris.
Kris: What is it?
(If Kris is male)
Phina: You really do train every single day, don't you? How can you train all by yourself when there's such a cute girl by your side?
(If Kris is female)
Phina: You really do train every single day, don't you? Isn't it just terrible for a young girl like you to train on your lonesome?

Kris: I'll lose my competitive edge if I miss a single day.
Phina: Tsk, you're so boring. Oh, right! Hey, do you want to see my dance?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Your dance? Yes, gladly. Your dance invigorates people, right? If you dance for me, I'll be able to train twice as hard.
Phina: Then... Do you want to see a normal dance or a "special" dance?
Kris: A special dance?
Phina: You see, my special dance... I've never shown it to a man before. Because... It's very embarrassing...
Kris: I-is that so?
Phina: Yes. Because it's very revealing... But... I wouldn't mind showing it to you, Kris...
Kris: What...?
Phina: You're special to me, Kris... So even if it's embarrassing; if you want me to do it, then I will. So... Kris. Do you want to see my special dance?
Kris: ...N-no, I, er...
Phina: Ahaha! It was a joke. Look at you, you've gone all red! There's no way I'd show it to you that easily. And you took me seriously!
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Your dance? Oh, I'd be happy to. Your dance will invigorate me, right? If you dance for me, I'll be able to train twice as hard.
Phina: Then... In exchange, you'll have to dance for me too, Kris!
Kris: M-me, dance?
Phina: Yes, it'd be unfair for me to dance alone. Not just because... dancing's rather embarrassing...
Kris: I-is that so?
Phina: Yes. But if you're with me Kris, then I won't be afraid. Come on, change into these clothes. We'll both wear these clothes to dance a special dance.
Kris: T-these clothes...? A-are these really clothes...? Not undergarments, right...?
Phina: Kris, you're so pretty. I'm sure these clothes'll suit you. So come on, off with your clothes...
Kris: N-no... I can't...
Phina: Ahaha! It was a joke. Look at you, you've gone all red! I can't believe you took me seriously!

Kris: Y-you...!
Phina: But it's fun to tease you, Kris! If you're annoyed, then how about you tease me back?
Kris: Enough of this. I'm going back to my training.
Phina: Oh, don't get angry at me. I was just teasing you! Hey, wait!

Third conversation

Phina: Fluttery! So, how was it? Did you like my dance?
Kris: Yes, I'm brimming with energy.
Phina: Are you happy that I'm here?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Yes, I am. When you're here, my training is far more productive.
Phina: You're just saying that! It's really because I'm pretty, right? You're always saying it's for your training, but truthfully you just enjoy spending time with me, right?
Kris: What? No way... ...Okay, perhaps.
Phina: Eh...?
Kris: ...At first, I thought you were annoying. But after seeing you dance more and more... Your dancing had... No, you had charmed me.
Phina: S-so you mean...
Kris: I decided not to confess my feelings. After all, you would have laughed at me. But, I...
Phina: Oh, b-but... It's still my first time doing this... So, um... B-but, if you really want me to, Kris, then I...
Kris: ...Phina.
Phina: ...Kris.
Kris: ...Gotcha.
Phina: Eh? Whaaaaat!?
Kris: You asked me to tease you back, didn't you? So I did.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Yes, of course. When you're here, my training is far more productive.
Phina: You're just saying that! But actually you want to dance with me, don't you? You could just ask me, if you wanted to continue what we started.
Kris: Continue what we started...? You're right. I desired to learn to dance, too.
Phina: But, if you want to dance, you will have to wear those revealing clothes. Are you really up for it, Kris?
Kris: ...I've decided. If it's to learn a new skill, I'll do whatever it takes. Besides, revealing clothes are nice. Look, I prepared some for both of us. Phina, try these clothes out.
Phina: Huh? T-these clothes are... Can you even call them clothes...? I-I might as well dance naked!
Kris: Come on, take your clothes off.
Phina: J-j-just wait a minute! These clothes... I'm fine wearing them, but are you, Kris? What would Prince Marth think of us if he saw us wearing THAT...?
Kris: I am fully prepared to fall from grace together with you.
Phina: Wait, come again!? I-I said wait a minute...
Kris: It's too late for words now. Even if you've changed your mind, I'll undress you by force if I have to.
Phina: Kya, kyaaa! N-no... Kris, stopppp! Forgive meeee!
Kris: Phina...
Phina: Huh...?
Kris: Gotcha.
Phina: Eh? Whaaaaat!
Kris: You asked me to tease you back, didn't you? So I did. But, to see you all flustered like this. So you are a little girl after all, Phina.

Phina: Are you serious, Kris!? I won't forgive you for this!

Cain and Kris

First conversation

Cain: Hah! Hiyah!
Kris: Sir Cain! Are you practicing here?
Cain: Yes, Kris. Is something the matter?
Kris: Actually, there is something I'd really like to ask of you, Sir Cain. I wonder if you could provide me guidance during my own practice?
Cain: Me?
Kris: Yes. You were our instructor back when we were apprentices, after all. Your strict training would surely encourage me to become stronger.
Cain: Alright. If you say it'll help you, then I'll lend you my help. However, you must steel yourself. I won't take it easy on you, like last time. This time, I'm going for real!
Kris: Yes, just as I hoped!

Second conversation

Cain: Not good enough! Faster!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Yes sir! Guh...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Y-yes! Ah...

Cain: What's wrong, Kris? Are you done already!?
Kris: No, Sir Cain! I can still do it!
Cain: Then stand up!
Kris: Got it! Hah! Hiyah! Haah!
Cain: ...Alright. Time for a short rest.
Kris: No, Sir Cain. I can still...!
Cain: No. If you go too far and break your own body, all this training will be for naught. Training your body is my task. Trust me. Leave it to me.
Kris: Understood. Then, I'll take a rest. ...When I'm with you, Sir Cain, I remember my grandfather.
Cain: Your grandfather?
Kris: Yes. My grandfather used to train me just like this. It really brings me back...
Cain: I-I see. By the way, Kris... Do I really look that old?
Kris: Huh?
Cain: Well, I'm still in my twenties... I see, I'm like a grandfather... That's really depressing...
Kris: Oh, no! I didn't mean it that way...

Third conversation

Kris: Hah! Yah! Haah!!
Cain: Alright, time to rest. Very impressive, Kris. Your strength is building up quickly.
Kris: Yes, it's all thanks to your training, Sir Cain.
Cain: However, don't lower your guard. This doesn't mean the practice will get any less difficult from now on. Use the strength you've obtained here to protect Prince Marth. Kris, I don't want you... to experience regret like I did.
Kris: Sir Cain? What regret...?
Cain: I ought to tell you, I suppose. Years ago, I failed to protect Prince Marth's father... It happened a few years before the last war... When the world was plunged into chaos following the Shadow Dragon's resurrection. The late King Cornelius, sortied to fulfill his blood destiny and vanquish Medeus. I was right beside him. However, we were defeated... King Cornelius died in battle... and I fled back to the castle...
Kris: ...
Cain: I lost my liege, whom I swore to protect, and yet I clinged to my meager existence... There is no greater disgrace for a knight. When I told Prince Marth of his father's last words... I...
Kris: Sir Cain...
Cain: ...Sorry. I don't want you... to feel like I did. If you or Prince Marth fall in battle, it'll be my fault. Kris, that's why I do my best to train you. My regrets, my feelings... I know you'll accept them. I believe it.
Kris: Yes... Sir Cain!
Cain: Alright, now back to practice!

Bantu and Kris

First conversation

Bantu: ...Good, this seasoning is quite fine.
Kris: Sir Bantu?
Bantu: Oh, you're, if I'm not mistaken...
Kris: Kris. Are there... vegetables inside this jar?
Bantu: Indeed, my boy/girl. Vegetables pickled with salt, among other things. This way, not only are they preserved for longer, but their taste becomes more exquisite as well.
Kris: Oh... Pickled vegetables, is it? I've eaten some before, as army provisions.
Bantu: How very convenient. Sir/Dame Kris, could you taste them for me, please?
Kris: Sure. If you'll excuse me...
Bantu: How is it, my boy/girl?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Hey, it tastes great!
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Wow, it's delicious!

Bantu: Hohoho, I'm glad to hear it. I've honed this technique for centuries, all to fix Tiki's disdain for vegetables...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: What, for centuries?!
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Gosh. For centuries... you say?

Bantu: That's right, Sir/Dame Kris. The next portion will be ready soon, would you like to taste it as well?
Kris: Yes, gladly!

Second conversation

Bantu: Oh dear...
Kris: Is something the matter, Sir Bantu?
Bantu: Oh, hello Sir/Dame Kris. Did you, um, see... a stone around this size?
Kris: A stone...? I'm sorry, I don't recall seeing one like that...
Bantu: I see, I see... What a predicament.
Kris: Was the stone important to you?
Bantu: Indeed, my boy/girl. Do you remember tasting the pickled vegetables a moment ago? I need that stone in order to pickle them...
Kris: Oh, I see. That is a predicament indeed...!
Bantu: As you age, you start forgetting a lot of things... A long time ago... Tiki told me she wanted to see what vegetables looked like before being pickled.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Oh, I think I can understand how she felt.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I see, that sounds like something a child would say.

Bantu: It brought me great joy seeing Tiki hold an interest in the outside world... So I broke my word and took her outside.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Sir Bantu...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I... would have done the same.

Bantu: However, I lost my dragonstone when we were near Pyrathi. It was terrible...
Kris: What?/Eh? You lost your dragonstone?!
Bantu: I'm afraid so, my boy/girl... Which reminds me, Prince Marth found it for me, back then. I'm truly grateful for his help. ...Sir/Dame Kris. I'm sorry to bother you, but if you happen to find my stone, could you bring it back to me?
Kris: Why, of course. I do want to taste your pickled vegetables again after all, Sir Bantu.

Third conversation

Kris: Sir Bantu!
Bantu: Oh, hello Sir/Dame Kris. Is something amiss, my boy/girl? Why are you in such a hurry? ...Hm? What you're holding, could it be...?
Kris: I found some nice-looking stones after our previous battle, so I decided to pick them.
Bantu: Oh my...! G-goodness gracious. Let me take a look...
Kris: I tried to choose some that you might like, but...
Bantu: Ooh...oooh... These are...!
Kris: Are they good?
Bantu: Yes, yes, they're of excellent quality! Sir/Dame Kris, I don't know how to thank you...
Kris: No, don't worry about/mention it. I'm always the one on the receiving end, so I guess this makes us even.
Bantu: A-are you sure, boy/girl? Aw, that's too bad...
Kris: Well, um. I wonder if I could ask you to teach me how to pickle vegetables?
Bantu: Oh yes, I'd be glad to! Hohoho, it feels like I've gotten another grandchild...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Haha, and I'm reminded of grandfather, too...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Oh my, tee hee...

Bantu: Then, let's not dilly dally. Go on, pick a vegetable of your choice.
Kris: Got it. And then, another one, right?
Bantu: Correct, my boy/girl. Finally, cover it well... Now, we only have to wait.
Kris: I'm looking forward to it. Oh, but how much time will it take before it's done?
Bantu: About one hundred years or so.
Kris: I'll, er, already be dead by then...

Roger and Kris

First conversation

Kris: Sir Roger.
Roger: Ohh... Caeda... She's so dreamy...
Kris: Sir Roger?
Roger: The other ladies in this army are all so beautiful, too... Ooh, I want to date somebody so bad...
Kris: Sir Roger!
Roger: Wah!? ...Oh, it's you, Kris. Don't shout so suddenly. You gave me one heck of a fright.
Kris: I called you many times, you know... So you desire to date someone, Sir Roger?
Roger: Huh? W-were you listening? Oh boy. Well, what's done is done. Since you know everything already, can I ask you something? Could you, um, give me some advice so I can score myself a date?
Kris: ...To be honest, I've no confidence. But, I won't know until I've tried, so I'll give it my best shot. What kind of girl do you like, Sir Roger?
Roger: Eh? Now that you ask me, I don't think I have a preference... Well, I'm not exactly pretty myself, so I don't really have high standards. I guess anyone in this army would do.
Kris: Anyone...?
Roger: Eh? Did I say anything wrong?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Well, I'm not exactly privy to a girl's heart, but... "anyone" sounds like an insult. I don't think any girl would like to hear that.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Sir Roger... "Anyone" just doesn't cut it. No girl wants to hear that.

Roger: I-is that so? I had no idea... Well, it makes sense, I suppose. Alright, I'll make an effort and think harder about my tastes; I'm counting on you, Kris!

Second conversation

Roger: Kris, listen to me!.
Kris: Sir Roger? What is it?
Roger: After our last talk, I thought real hard about the ideal type of woman for me. Well, she should have a beautiful face and an adorable smile.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Okay.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Got it.

Roger: A large chest would be swell, too. But I'd prefer thin hips... She should be wealthy, gentle, reliable, sweet... ...a good cook, talker, listener, have a nice voice and be able to hold her liquor...
Kris: ...
Roger: She must be somebody who's always loved me, secretly thinking of me till this day, longing for me every night... ...Somebody who's been a little sister to me ever since we were young, but now wishes to be seen as a mature woman...
Kris: ...I see. I think I got it, Sir Roger.
Roger: Oh, but there's more... Well, the rest is written on this sheet of paper. Anyway, I'd like to go out with a girl whom meets all of these conditions. Kris, what's the plan?
Kris: Well...
Roger: W-well?
Kris: I'd love to believe there's a woman like that, out there somewhere. B-but, I must resume my practice...
Roger: W-what? Are you telling me you're giving up? W-wait, Kris, wait a minute. You're the only one I can rely on!te. You're the only one I can rely on!

Third conversation

Roger: Hey Kris, could you give me some more advice?
Kris: Yeah, sure. If it's within my capability.
(If Kris is male)
Roger: I've been thinking; I wonder... if I set the bar too high? I've decided to change my plans and start by meeting someone. After all, wouldn't it be wonderful to gradually fall in love with someone after talking to her again and again?
Kris: A wise decision.
Roger: So, I was wondering if you could, um, introduce me to someone. Kris... don't you know any nice girls?
(If Kris is female)
Roger: But honestly, I had no idea somebody thought of me that way. No idea at all. I wonder if I should confess my love right now? Chris, what do you reckon's best?
Kris: Huh...? I don't know, that depends on the other person...
Roger: Why are you talking like it's got nothing to do with you...? Weren't you waiting for my confession? That's the reason you felt jealous when I talked about my ideal woman, right? Anyway, Kris! I love you!!!
Kris: Eh!? W-what, me? I'm sorry, but I...
Roger: There you go, looking all embarrassed... You put up a cold front, but you really like me, don't you?
Kris: No, you've got it wrong! I don't feel that way at all!
Roger: I-I-I see... If you deny it that strongly... then I guess I'm back to being a sad man again...
Kris: Oh... I-I'm sorry. I spoke too much.
Roger: If you want to apologize... How about you introduce me to another girl, then?

Kris: O-oh, right. I can't think of anyone at the moment... But, well... I've, er, heard whispers... of a girl who, um, secretly admires you, but who's too shy to confess her feelings... These are just whispers though, but I don't think anybody can positively prove they're false.
Roger: I see, you're right, I can't deny that. So it's a shy girl. I had no idea.
Kris: What if you took the initiative, Sir Roger?
Roger: You're right, I should be proactive and seek her myself! Thanks, Kris! I'll give it a shot!
Kris: ...I wonder, did I do the right thing?

Jeorge and Kris

First conversation

Kris: Sir Jeorge, we're counting on you. Might I say, it is an honor to fight alongside one who is acclaimed to be the finest archer in the continent.
Jeorge: The finest in the continent...? I'm sorry, but that's a gross exaggeration. Please don't mention it again.
Kris: Huh? Why?
Jeorge: I hail from a noble family, you see, and somebody within my family just spread that claim for fame and nothing else. I'm not actually that great.
Kris: A-ah, I see... By the way, may I ask you something? At Chiasmir Bridge, why were you...
Jeorge: Defending the castle, even though I'm an archer?
Kris: Er, yes. Well, it was quite fortunate for us, but...
Jeorge: Truly, bows aren't suited for defending castles. If the enemy gets too close, there's nothing we can do, but pray to God. However, Hardin fully knew that when he ordered that guard duty.
Kris: ...In other words...
Jeorge: That's right. Basically, an execution. He might as well have told me to "die defending the castle".
Kris: But why would he...?
Jeorge: I kept pointing out the errors of his ways, and I didn't support Lang, to boot. From Hardin's viewpoint, I was nothing but a hindrance.
Kris: ...
Jeorge: I thought I should die there, too. But Kris, you and the others reminded me of where my loyalty truly lies. For that, I thank you.
Kris: The pleasure is mine and I am thankful to be able to fight alongside you, Sir Jeorge.

Second conversation

Jeorge: ...And then, Astram and Midia became lovers that day. The members of my family who wanted me and Midia to wed were livid, but... 'Twas a matter of feelings, you see.
Kris: I had no idea...
Jeorge: And that's why I'm still single. If only I could find a nice girl who would comfort me...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: But in that case... People might think you're a frivolous man.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I knew you'd say that... I've heard the rumors about you. People would think you're a frivolous man.

Jeorge: Haha, wouldn't that be troublesome?
Kris: But, that's what you want others to think... Am I right?
Jeorge: ...Hm?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Those who lay eyes on you... Are captivated by your beauty and your rank of nobility. But your fighting style seems at odds with your appearance. If anything, it seems somewhat calculated. My grandfather once taught me one's way of fighting reveals more about them than anything else. You are in fact a very ingenious man.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Those who lay eyes on you... Are captivated by your beauty and your rank of nobility. But your fighting style seems at odds with your appearance. If anything, it seems somewhat calculated. My grandfather once taught me one's way of fighting reveals more about them than anything else. Aren't you actually a very ingenious man?

Jeorge: Am I? Why would you think that?
Kris: Back in Chiasmir Bridge, when we persuaded you to our side... Didn't that go exactly as you planned? You were ordered by Hardin to defend the castle, but you could have hid and instead chose to remain in plain sight. You knew a lone archer in that position wouldn't pose a threat to our army. And besides, you had a deep relationship with Altea, having taught Gordin in the ways of archery...
Jeorge: ...You think too highly of me. I am not that smart.
Kris: And if we go even further back... You refusing to support Lang back in Grust might have been a preparation for that... As long as your subordinates were with you, you couldn't switch to Prince Marth's side, but you didn't want to fight him either... In order to make the Altean army aware of your intentions, you chose not to make a move... And that action led us to convince you back in Chiasmir Bridge. Not to mention it enraged Emperor Hardin, causing you to defend the castle...
Jeorge: ...
Kris: If all of this was premeditated... you are truly a fearsome man.
Jeorge: ...You overestimate me. It all happened by chance. However... Even if I could see that far ahead... Such a plan... wouldn't have worked without the co-operation of Altea's army. It was only successful because I believed you would act wisely.

Third conversation

Jeorge: ...I'm from House Menedy, which is a rather well-known family in Archanea. It wasn't particularly famous for martial prowess or anything. However, it excelled at foresight and trickery. Which side to bet on to win or how to get ahold of somebody's heart... That's how House Menedy managed to retain their political influence.... Thus, cementing it as one of the Five Houses of Archanea.
Kris: ...
Jeorge: But I couldn't see eye to eye with their methods of living. Always acting with a plan and playing other people into their hands... I found that disgusting. I longed for a lifestyle with more freedom.
Kris: So that's why you broke up with Miss Midia...
Jeorge: However, as they say, I have their blood in my veins. Just as you've noticed, my true nature has a cold, calculating element. While I find disgust with my family's scheming mind, I have no choice but to rely on it... That's who I am. To protect my men and Lady Nyna too... To find the best way to solve a problem... I can't help but see people as chess pieces.
Kris: Sir Jeorge... Please tell me. How do you see the end of this war, with those far-seeing eyes of yours?
Jeorge: Those of House Menedy always know who is going to prevail. And Prince Marth will be victorious.
Kris: I'm glad...
(If Kris is male)
Jeorge: However, that depends on you. My prediction will only come to light if you keep on winning. Defeat isn't an option. Can you do it?
Kris: Anything for Prince Marth's victory.
Jeorge: Heh... Just the answer I wanted. Then I'll stay nearby and make sure you keep that oath.
(If Kris is female)
Jeorge: But, my prediction will only come to light if you're alive. Kris, don't die. It's fine to run at times. ...I want you to stay alive.
Kris: W-why are you telling me this...?
Jeorge: If I say it's because I like you... Would you believe me?
Kris: N-no, not if it's you, Sir Jeorge. I'm sure you're planning something...
Jeorge: ...Indeed. I don't deny that this is a plan, but well... I'll leave the reason up to your imagination. But reason aside, I do want you to live... Please remember there's a man here who's counting on your survival.
Kris: Sir Jeorge...

Minerva and Kris

First conversation

Kris: Hm? This pendent... ...Who does it belong to? This emblem... Isn't this House Macedon's...?
Minerva: Sir/Dame Kris, that's...
Kris: Ah! I-I apologize. Did you drop this, Princess Minerva?
(If Kris is male)
Minerva: Yes, sorry. Actually, I've been looking for it for quite some time. I see you've found it. You have my thanks.
Kris: Yes ma'am.
Minerva: ...I received this from my mother, when I was still young. Michalis, Maria and I... The three of us have this same pendant.
(If Kris is female)
Minerva: Yes, sorry. Actually, I've been looking for it for quite some time. I see you've found it. You have my thanks. ...I received this from my mother, when I was still young. Michalis, Maria and I... The three of us have this same pendant.

Kris: So Prince Michalis too...
Minerva: Yes. We three... used to be very close, a long time ago. But, as you know... In the previous war, Michalis and I fought as enemies. I was on Prince Marth's side, while Michalis was on Medeus's... Those days, when we laughed together... are sadly a relic of the past.
Kris: ...
Minerva: However, I've severed my ties with him. The war council will begin shortly. Let's go, Sir/Dame Kris.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Yes ma'am.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Yes.

Second conversation

Kris: Princess Minerva, how was it? Did you find Princess Maria...?
Minerva: Sadly, no...
Kris: I see...
Minerva: Maria... I can only hope she's safe...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Please don't push yourself. Should you fall, Lady Maria will be sad.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Please don't push yourself. Should you fall, Princess Maria will be sad.

Minerva: Yes, of course. Thank you, Kris. There is no longer a brotherly bond between Michalis and me. However, Maria... I want her to be happy... That feeling alone... is the same in him and me.
Kris: Princess Minerva... I wonder if Prince Michalis wants not only Princess Maria to be happy... But you to be happy as well?
Minerva: Me, too...?
Kris: I believe that's why he saved you when you were held captive.
Minerva: ... It's funny... Even though I was the one who struck him down...
Kris: To Prince Michalis, you're still his sister, probably.
Minerva: ...

Third conversation

Minerva: Kris... Your liege is truly a wonderful man. Even though constantly fighting at a disadvantage, he's winning battle after battle...
Kris: Yes. Prince Marth has the talent of uniting everyone's hearts as one.
Minerva: Yes, Michalis recognized that as well. That Prince Marth has the qualifications of a hero... Somebody like him might very well be suited to be king.
Kris: Yes, I think so as well.
Minerva: ...I'm envious of him. The ideal kingdom, where everyone can live in equality... That's what I wanted to make of Macedon. However, my generals rebelled, and I was captured and forced to display my helplessness... I suppose in the end, I didn't have what it took...
Kris: Princess Minerva...
Minerva: Prince Marth is loved and adored by all. Had Macedon a charming prince like him, things could have gone differently...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Truly, Prince Marth is a wonderful man. However, Princess Minerva, your ideal is just as wonderful as Prince Marth's heart. And besides... Princess Minerva, you are very charming yourself. Having fought by your side, I know you quite well. You seem strict on the outside, but... You're actually very kind and gentle.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Truly, Prince Marth is a wonderful man. However, Princess Minerva, your ideal is just as wonderful as Prince Marth's heart. Having fought by your side, I know you quite well. You seem strict on the outside, but... You're actually very kind and gentle.

Minerva: ...I don't deserve those words. I'm not that great of a person. ...But, it doesn't feel bad to hear that from you...

Etzel and Kris

First conversation

Etzel: ...
Kris: Sir Etzel, it's time for the meeting.
Etzel: Hm? Oh, got it. Sorry, I'll get going right away.
Kris: That ring... Is it dear to you?
Etzel: Yeah... Can you tell?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Uh-huh. You seem to stare it every now and then. Was it a gift from somebody close to you?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Uh-huh. I noticed you staring at it every now and then. Was it a gift from somebody close to you?

Etzel: Kind of... This is a memento of my late wife.
Kris: ...I see. I'm sorry.
Etzel: No, it's all right. My wife dreamed of a peaceful world, and I'm fighting to make her dream a reality. ...But, I suppose I think of her too much.

Second conversation

Kris: Sir Etzel, it's time for the meeting.
Etzel: Yeah, thanks. Sorry again. By the way, do you go around reminding everyone, everytime?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Yes. I can't help but wonder how everyone is.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Yes. I can't help but wonder how everyone is...

Etzel: You're really nice, aren't you? Be careful, the kind ones always die early. Especially in dangerous times like these...
Kris: Your wife... She was kind as well, wasn't she?
Etzel: Yeah, Ursula... wanted peace more than anything. But, she was too nice. She protected me after I made a mistake, and lost her life...
Kris: So that's what happened...
Etzel: Say... People go to heaven after they die, right? I wonder if Ursula... is living there in peace?
Kris: Yes, I'm certain of it...
Etzel: ...In that case... If I were to die... I wonder if I'd see her again...?
Kris: Sir Etzel...
Etzel: ...Sorry. I said something foolish. Please forget about it.

Third conversation

Kris: Sir Etzel.
Etzel: Huh, is it time already?
Kris: No, today I came because I urgently needed to talk to you. I know I'm being impertinent, Sir Etzel, but... When I see the way you fight... I can't help but worry.
Etzel: Worry?
Kris: When you fight, every now and then... It seems like you're searching for a place to die.
Etzel: ...Sorry, it's a bad habit of mine. When I'm fighting, I can't help but remember her.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Sir Etzel... I don't know anything about Ursula. However... I'm sure Ursula... wanted you to live. That's why she protected you.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Sir Etzel... I don't know anything about Ursula... Nor do I know how deeply you were in love with each other... However... I'm sure Ursula... wanted you to live. That's why she protected you.

Etzel: ...
Kris: If you die, her death will have been in vain. So, please...
Etzel: Yeah... You're right. If I go to where she is after wasting my life... She'll probably be furious. "Don't waste a precious life", she'd say... That's the kind of girl she was...
Kris: Sir Etzel...
(If Kris is male)
Etzel: Thank you, Kris. Oh, the meeting will convene soon. Shall we go together, Kris?
(If Kris is female)
Etzel: Thank you, Kris. For a moment it felt like Ursula was scolding me herself. Oh, the meeting will convene soon. Shall we go together, Kris?

Kris: Gladly!

Merric and Kris

First conversation

Merric: Kris, I must thank you for protecting Prince Marth thus far.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Your thanks is too much. You speak of my duty after all.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Your thanks is too much. I only did what you asked me, Sir Merric.

Merric: When I heard Altea had fallen, I just couldn't believe it.
Kris: Indeed, I can't believe our motherland Altea...
Merric: That happened because you guys were away. There's nothing you could have done. But at least, Prince Marth is safe. Now that I am here, I'll devote all of my strength to our cause.
Kris: Yes, it is reassuring to have you with us, Sir Merric.

Second conversation

Merric: ...Kris?
Kris: Excuse me, am I interrupting you?
Merric: No, nothing of the sort. When I close my eyes like this, and feel the wind on my body... My heart becomes free and I can focus.
Kris: That reminds me, they call you the Wind Mage, don't they, Sir Merric?
Merric: Yes. I suppose I acquired that name because of my mastery of Excalibur.
Kris: I see. The wind magic, Excalibur... Excalibur suits you well, Sir Merric.
Merric: I guess... But, would you be surprised if I said I didn't choose Excalibur, but rather Excalibur chose me?
Kris: Excalibur chose you?
Merric: That's right. Our teacher, Master Wendell, once gave Excalibur to me and Thoron to Elrean. I didn't receive Excalibur because I was better than Elrean. But, rather, it was because of the magic's personality.
Kris: Magic has personality?
Merric: While very rare, some spellbooks have a "will" of their own and the magic itself chooses its owner. Excalibur is one such spellbook. I guess Excalibur liked my personality since it chose me.
Kris: Magic choosing its user...? Now I've seen everything.
Merric: Haha. So, as you can see, I only became the Wind Mage by chance. If things had gone a little differently, then perhaps Elrean would be the one being called the Wind Mage.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I see... However, I must say, wind magic really suits you, Sir Merric. Excalibur was probably smitten by your calm disposition.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I see... However, I must say, wind magic really suits you, Sir Merric. Excalibur was probably smitten by your calm disposition. Truly, no wind magic could resist your charms, Sir Merric.

Merric: Oh, that's kind of you. Thanks.

Third conversation

Kris: Sir Merric, what are your plans once this war is over?
Merric: Hmm, I haven't decided yet. Once peace comes, there are a lot of things I'd like to do. But, they'd all have to wait until after I rescue Lady Elice.
Kris: Lady Elice...
Merric: Yes, I couldn't protect Lady Elice during the War of Shadows... and failed to protect her this time too. That's my greatest regret for having left Altea. This time, I'll definitely stay by Lady Elice's side and protect her. It was for that reason, and that reason alone, that I honed my magic. For the one... I really wish to protect... For Lady Elice.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Kris: I'll assist you, Sir Merric. Let's rescue Lady Elice as soon as we can.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: ...So you love Lady Elice that much... I'll do my best, Sir Merric. Let's rescue Lady Elice as soon as we can.

Merric: You have my thanks!

Arlen and Kris

First conversation

Arlen: So you're Kris, huh? Hmph, you don't look like that great of a man.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Sir Arlen... How did you come to know about me?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Huh, but I'm a woman. Oh well... Sir Elrean... How did you come to know about me?

Arlen: Merric was talking about you, earlier. As a reliable knight who sticks to the prince. Heh, I really shouldn't expect much from what Merric says. I can tell hard times are ahead if we have to rely on someone like you.
Kris: Indeed. I'm still much in need of further training.
Arlen: ...What? So you admit your weakness?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Yes. I have no choice but to become much stronger. For Prince Marth's sake.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Yes. I want to become much stronger. For Prince Marth's sake.

Arlen: For somebody else's sake, huh...? Heh, sounds just like something Merric would say. However, I won't lose to somebody like you. I have no intention of falling behind in battle.

Second conversation

Kris: Hah! Hah! Haah!
Arlen: Hmph, such primitive training. Is that how you train back in Altea?
Kris: Sir Elrean. No, this is how I train by myself. During the Altean knights' training, we learned the importance of co-operation between comrades, after all.
Arlen: Comrades? How foolish. Sounds like something Merric would say. You can't become stronger while being so complacent. Those who are learning alongside you aren't your comrades. They're enemies, all of them. That's why I warned Merric time and time again that he shouldn't think so naively, yet...
Kris: You... You sure think about Sir Merric a lot, don't you?
Arlen: A-absurd! Why would I ever need to think about Merric?
Kris: But when we're talking, you're always "Merric this" and "Merric that"...
Arlen: S-shut up. I've never given a thought about him, not even for a moment. Hmph, you drive me mad. Just like Merric...
Kris: ...See, again.
Arlen: S-shut up! We're done here!

Third conversation

Arlen: Hmph, Kris. So you're still alive.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Elrean, I'm glad you're safe. It's nice that both of us comrades are alive to chat like this.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Elrean, it's good you're safe. It's nice that both of us comrades are alive to chat like this.

Arlen: ...Hmph, I have no comrades.
Kris: You have no comrades, huh...? Was it like that back when you were in the School of Khadein, as well?
Arlen: Of course. I was different from those fools around me, after all. They kept their distance from me and I laughed scornfully at them in response. I've always been alone.
Kris: ...
Arlen: But, that's right... That guy, Merric, was different. He said he wanted to be my friend. No matter how often I ignored him... How stupid. Everyone hated me, and I talked behind everyone's backs... And yet... Why did he want to be my friend...?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Elrean... I see, Sir Merric was a precious friend to you... But, there was just an unfortunate estrangement. Actually, you and Sir Merric...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Elrean... I see, Sir Merric really was a precious friend to you... But, there was just an unfortunate estrangement. Actually, you and Sir Merric...

Arlen: D-don't be absurd. I don't care about Merric...! Hmph, being with you really makes my blood boil. I'm heading back!
Kris: Sure, but come back when you feel like it. And... I want to become your friend, too. That's what I wish.
Arlen: ...Even in that aspect you're like Merric. Hmph, you guys piss me off...

Dice and Kris

First conversation

Dice: Alright, lessee! Gah, heads.
Kris: Sir Dice.
Dice: Oh, yer, if I remember... Kris, wazzit?
Kris: Yeah. What are you doing with that coin?
(If Kris is male)
Dice: Oh, this...? This is a coin used for gambling. It was made specially so it'll land on heads more often. Well, ain't this perfect. Hey Kris, wanna try yer luck?
Kris: You've gotten me intrigued. I'll try it once, and only once.
Dice: Ooh, confidence! I like that. Alright... here we go! So, what's yer bet!?
Kris: Let's see,ed I'll go with tails.
Dice: Oh, that makes me heads then. ...Lessee!
Kris: ...Damn, heads.
Dice: Heh heh, didn't I tell you...? This coin lands on heads more often.
Kris: Indeed. ...Well, it seems I have no talent for gambling. If you'll excuse me, I'll take my leave.
Dice: Wha... Hang on. Yer quitting already? Let's play again, c'mon!
Kris: ...I'm sure I told you I would only try it once.
(If Kris is female)
Dice: Oh, this...? This is a coin used for gambling. It was made specially so it'll land on heads more often. Well, ain't this perfect. Hey Kris, how about a little bet?
Kris: Eh? I'm sorry, but I don't touch gambling.
Dice: Well, well! Somebody's uptight. C'mon, just this once, alright? Here goes...! There! So, what's yer bet!?
Kris: You give me no choice, huh? Fine, I'll be heads.
Dice: Alright, then that makes me tails. ...Lessee!
Kris: Heads, right?
Dice: Yeah, you win.
Kris: Good, now if you'll excuse me.
Dice: W-wait! Just one more time, please!
Kris: ...I thought you said "just this once"?

Second conversation

Dice: Hey, Kris!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Sir Dice. Do you need me for something?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: ...Sir Dice. What's the occasion?

Dice: C'mon! Gamble with me, please! Just once more would be enough!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Sorry, but I refuse. By the way, you've been challenging me again and again ever since then.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I refuse. By the way, you've been challenging me again and again ever since then.

Dice: Huh? I have? Well, this'll really be the last time, I swear! C'mon I'm begging ya!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: ...Sir Dice, you only think about gambling. And because of that, you bring trouble to those around you.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Listen to me, Sir Dice. You only think about gambling... And I'm sure it must have brought nothing but trouble to your daughter.

Dice: Oh? Are you trying to gimme a sermon?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: No, I had no such intention...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: No, not quite.

Dice: Good, 'cause you're gambling on yer prince too, aren't ya?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Wha, what are you talking about, Sir Dice...? There's no way Prince Marth could lose. So, it's different from gambling. I'd appreciate it if you didn't group this and that together.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Hmph. Is that your answer...? There's no way Prince Marth could lose. So, it's different from gambling. I'd appreciate it if you didn't group this and that together.

Dice: What? Aren't they the same? First, you make yer move, and yer prepared to die if yer wrong. You only realize the results later.
Kris: ...
Dice: So, in yer case... Do you see now? You analyze yer chances of defeat together with the prince, and then subtract them beforehand. The rest is up to the prince. Am I right?
Kris: Well, you could say that.
Dice: So, you see, gambling is all...
Kris: I'm not falling for that.
Dice: Gah, didn't quite work, huh?

Third conversation

Kris: Sir Dice.
Dice: Oh, if it ain't Kris. It's rare to see you calling after me.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Yes, indeed.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Indeed.

Dice: So, does that mean you've finally awakened to the glorious beauty of gambling?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: No, I wouldn't go that far.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Not quite.

Dice: What... Yer so boring. Then, what're you here for?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: There's something I'd like to ask. About that item you used while gambling with me, Sir Dice... If I understand correctly, it was putting you at a definite disadvantage.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I have a question to ask you. About that item you used while gambling with me, Sir Dice... If I understand correctly, it was putting you at a definite disadvantage.

Dice: Oh, that.
Kris: Why would you do such a thing?
Dice: No reason.
Kris: Then, you wanted to lose on purpose?
Dice: ...Lemme tell yer, when yer gambling, the numbers on the dice don't really matter.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Come again?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Eh, what do you mean?

Dice: The important thing is just whether you can throw the dice or not when the time comes. Life doesn't give you the chance of using everything you've piled up with a bang, y'know.
Kris: That could be true.
Dice: By the way, I can feel that from yer prince. That's why I made a bet.
Kris: ...For Prince Marth to win.
Dice: But, sadly, all I can bet is my own body!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: The meaning behind your gambling... I think I get it now. However, it makes me afraid of sticking around you for too long...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I think I get it now. However, it makes me afraid of sticking around you for too long...

Dice: What's wrong with ya, talking like I'm a symbol of misfortune or summit?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Sorry, I was joking.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Tee hee, I'm sorry.

Dice: Alright! Then, let's have a game to cheer up!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Yes, I accept your challenge!
(If Kris is female)
Kris: What if I said no?
Dice: Damn, didn't work, huh?

Malice and Kris

First conversation

Kris: Miss Malice.
Malice: Er, you are...
Kris: Kris.
Malice: Yeah, the guy/girl always milling around Prince Marth, right?
Kris: Wha!
Malice: You sayin' I'm wrong?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: No... Well, whatever.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: No... I guess you could say that.

Malice: So, whadya want from me?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I saw you fighting during the previous battle. It was a style I had never seen before... Self-taught?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I saw you fighting during the previous battle. It was a style I had never seen before... Self-taught, perhaps?

Malice: Yeah.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: It looked way too elegant for something martial- ...Eh!?
Malice: Whadya say?
Kris: W-why did you draw your weapon?
Malice: Well, it was just your first offense. I'll forgive you. ...You know about my Pops, right?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Your movements looked way too elegant for something martial...
Malice: Wha! Whadya say?
Kris: Huh!? Did I... say something rude?
Malice: ...No, it ain't your fault. But... don't praise me. Somehow, it makes me nervous.
Kris: A-alright.
Malice: ...You know about my Pops, right?

Kris: Yeah. I heard he loves gambling.
Malice: Damn old geezer. No matter how much gold we have at home, he uses it up in the blink of an eye. That's why I learned this fencing, for show.
Kris: I see.
(If Kris is male)
Malice: Oh, right. Wanna see it?
Kris: Oh, of course! Please do show me. ...Hm? What's with the open hand?
Malice: Gold. Who said I'd show you for free?
(If Kris is female)
Malice: Oh yeah. Wanna see it?
Kris: Yes! I'd love to see it.
Malice: Alright, gotcha. I usually charge money for this, but... Just this once, I'll show you free of charge.

Second conversation

Malice: That's the speed... And now, jump!
Kris: Got it!
Malice: Stop moving the moment you fall!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: How am I suppo!
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Okay! ...Huh!?

Malice: ...Did you fall?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Yes, as you can plainly see... You aside, Miss Malice, I'd say it's almost impossible for anyone to pull off that stunt.
Malice: Well, I'd be in a lotta trouble if people could mimic me that easily. But you seem different from the usual buff guys. You were close enough.
Kris: I-is that so? It's all thanks to my grandfather.
Malice: Oh yes, one more thing.
Kris: Hm?
Malice: I appreciate the fact you didn't ask me why I chose the way of the sword, despite being a woman.
Kris: Yeah. For a knight, there's no difference between man and woman, after all.
Malice: ...Oh?
Kris: But well, when you're quiet, you do look rather elegant- Wha...!
Malice: When I'm quiet, I what? Do you want to die?
Kris: N-no. I'd prefer not to, thanks. But more importantly, I wonder if... Could you lower this dangerous knife that's lodged rather close to my neck?
Malice: ...Hmph. Next time, I'll be twice as deadly as this!
Kris: But weren't you the one who started the subject this time, Miss Malice...?

Third conversation

(If Kris is male)
Malice: ...And it's all over.
Kris: So this is your fencing, Miss Malice...!
Malice: Aren't you glad? Your grandfather's gold was put to good use.
Kris: Yes. But, how do I say this? Those movements... It looked like I was watching shooting stars- Wha...!? Wait! I was just praising your fencing!
Malice: Indeed you were.
Kris: Then why are you pointing your sword towards me!?
Malice: I don't know either. But, when you praised me, I felt excited.
Kris: So you mean to say you felt embarrassed...!?
Malice: What did you say? Do you want to die?
Kris: No, I choose to live! I choose to live, because I want to keep admiring your fencing.
Malice: ... Very well. Then I'll show you my fencing. I don't need money. But, in return...
Kris: What?
Malice: Praise me. I want to be praised by you, more and more. I don't know why.
Kris: Yes, I don't mind. I know many, many of your good points after all, Miss Malice.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: ...And I'm done.
Malice: ...To think that you'd grasp so much in such little time. Please, don't steal my job.
Kris: Don't say that, I still have much to learn.
Malice: You're... I'm sure I told you not to be so humble. You'll just be ridiculed by others.
Kris: Yes. ...You're really nice, Miss Malice.
Malice: ...What?
Kris: But... you're unfair.
Malice: Heh, whadya mean?
Kris: You ask not to be praised... And yet, praise me all the time. How am I supposed to repay you then?
Malice: Well... You're right. Indeed, it's just as you said. I guess, it makes me nervous... 'Cause I'm not used to receiving it.
Kris: Wha! Then, from now on...?
Malice: Yeah, do as you wish. But, in exchange...
Kris: What is it?
Malice: From now on... I'll take the liberty of calling you by name. Got it, Kris?
Kris: Of course. Then... I, too, will directly call you Malice.
Malice: Sure. Once again, nice to meet you, Kris.
Kris: No. The pleasure is mine, Malice!

Horace and Kris

First conversation

Horace: Sir/Dame Kris. I must thank you for saving my life.
Kris: No, no. You should be thanking Prince Marth. He was the one who made the decision to help you, Lord Horace.
Horace: ...Haha, I see. You and Prince Marth are really alike.
Kris: ...Excuse me?
Horace: ...Oh, forgive me. I found it amusing how the liege and vassal told me more or less the same thing. Prince Marth told me that too that I should be thanking you, Kris.
Kris: R-really?
Horace: Yes. You two are really well-matched. I'd like to learn from you. And to do that, we must first...
Kris: Yes, Lord Horace. Assuredly, we shall rescue Princess Nyna.
Horace: It's most reassuring to hear it coming from you, Sir/Dame Kris. I might not be strong, but I'll do my best for Prince Marth. I will be counting on you, Sir/Dame Kris.
Kris: Likewise, Lord Horace.

Second conversation

Kris: Lord Horace, did you assist Prince Marth during the War of Shadows as well?
Horace: Indeed. However, at first... Not knowing the situation, I pointed my spear towards Prince Marth. For that sin, I must apologize to you as well.
Kris: But I heard you only did that because the villagers were being held hostage. If you didn't fight Prince Marth, the enemy would have killed them. However, fighting against the League was the same as opposing your kingdom. You risked being branded a traitor, yet you still protected the people. I think your conviction was admirable.
Horace: I'm most obliged by your undeserved understanding.
Kris: The time I've spent with you allowed me to learn something. Lord Horace, you are truly an honest man.
Horace: 'Tis an honor hearing that from you. Thank you, Sir/Dame Kris.

Third conversation

Horace: Sir/Dame Kris.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Lord Horace? Do you have some business with me?
Horace: Yes, I came because I wanted to talk to you. Sir Kris, your fighting prowess... is splendid. As a fellow knight, I'm deeply impressed. Not only your performance in battle, but also your constant devotion and will to protect your liege... Both are absolutely magnificent.
Kris: I appreciate your praise.
Horace: Good. So, could you honor me with your company?
Kris: Of course. Sparring, correct?
Horace: Yes, exactly. Sir Kris, you're most definitely a worthy opponent. Therefore, I won't need to hold back.
Kris: Exactly what I was hoping for.
Horace: You have my thanks, Sir Kris.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: L-lord Horace? Do you have some business with me?
Horace: Why, of course! Dame Kris, your fighting prowess... is splendid. As a fellow knight, I'm deeply impressed. Not only your performance in battle, but also your constant devotion and will to protect your liege... Both are very likeable.
Kris: Likeable...?
Horace: Yes. So, could you honor me with your company?
Kris: M-my company?
Horace: Yes, I'd like to spar with you. Dame Kris, you're most definitely a worthy opponent. Therefore, I won't need to hold back.
Kris: Oh, yes, I see... Of course you meant sparring.

Horace: You have my thanks, Sir/Dame Kris.

Jake and Kris

First conversation

Jake: Yo, Kris, right? I've heard the rumors, nice to meet you.
Kris: The pleasure is mine, Sir Jake.
Jake: Just call me Jake. Let's drop the formalities 'kay? We're comrades after all.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Alright. Then, I'll do just that.
Jake: By the way, have you heard about the secret shop?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: You're right. Then, I'll do just that.
Jake: Awesome, I like cute girls best when they're natural. By the way, have you heard about the secret shop?

Kris: Secret shop?
Jake: Yeah, my girlfriend Anna runs a secret shop. It's an amazing shop, located in the most secret of spots and with an incredibly well-camouflaged entrance.
Kris: That does sound amazing...
Jake: But, even amazing shops like that have their fair share of problems. Y'see, customers just don't come.
Kris: ...I-I wonder...
Jake: So, we've been thinking of ways to get more customers to come, but...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I have one suggestion... Can I say it?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I have one suggestion. Can I say it?

Jake: Yeah, go ahead.
Kris: Why not make it, um, non-secret?
Jake: Oh, but of course! Wow, you're sharp. Hmm, but we can't do that. You see, it's a secret shop. If it ain't secret, it wouldn't be a secret shop anymore now, would it?
Kris: That's rather complicated.
Jake: Yeah, don't I know it's troublesome...

Second conversation

Jake: You want to know how Anna's secret shop first started? In the beginning, it was a shop of ultra-expensive goods targetting ultra-wealthy customers.
Kris: You mean, royals and nobles?
Jake: Yeah, people like that. That's why they kick you out unless you got yourself a special VIP Card.
Kris: VIP Card... Sounds like a very important card. So only nobles have them?
Jake: No, no. There's only one VIP Card in this world.
Kris: O-only one!? Then I can see why customers don't come... In fact, I'd say it's a miracle that customers come at all...
Jake: Yeah. It'd be swell if we had more customers...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Well, I have another suggestion... Can I say it?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Well, I have a suggestion... Can I say it?

Jake: Sure, 'course you can.
Kris: Why not drop the VIP requirement?
(If Kris is male)
Jake: Of course! You're really sharp. But, we can't do that. It's a secret shop after all...
(If Kris is female)
Jake: Of course! You're really sharp. But, no matter how fetching of a lass you are, we can't do that. It's a secret shop after all...

Kris: That's rather complicated.
Jake: Yeah, don't I know it's troublesome...

Third conversation

(If Kris is male)
Kris: Jake, about the secret shop... Since its location is meant to be secret, you can't tell people exactly where it is. But how about letting everybody know roughly where it's supposed to be?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Say, Jake. About the secret shop... Since its location is meant to be secret, you can't tell people exactly where it is. But how about letting everybody know roughly where it's supposed to be?

Jake: Hmm, good idea... Alright, you win! I'll give you my special service! I'll tell you where the secret shop is. Then you go tell Prince Marth and the others all about it.
Kris: Got it, I'll tell everyone.
Jake: Here goes: Do you remember the spot where I was standing when I met you guys?
Kris: Yes, the desert in Anri's Way.
Jake: The truth is...! The secret shop was near that very spot!
Kris: ...
Jake: Now that you know, you'd better tell everyone right away how to get to the secret shop! It's selling really nice goods, y'know!
Kris: Jake, I'm very sorry, but... I don't think we're ever going to go back to Anri's Way...
Jake: What...? O-oh, damn!!
Kris: Are there any other secret shops?
Jake: Well, I think so, but I don't remember where they are. Oh, Anna... Please forgive your pitiful excuse of a boyfriend...

Darros and Kris

First conversation

Darros: Harump... Arr, there be so much dirt t'clean here. I ought t'pull me load.
Kris: Huh, who might you be?
Darros: I be Darros. Do ye have any business with me?
Kris: The name's Kris. Well, not quite business, but... I thought I was the one in charge of cleaning this place.
Darros: Arr, I be sorry! But I be done soon, just wait a moment.
Kris: Erm, okay.
Darros: Harump...
Kris: Huh? Sir Darros... When you said you'll be done, did you mean all of the cleaning?
Darros: Aye, o' course. Is summit wrong?
Kris: No, not really, but...
Darros: Arr, good t'hear. Then, I be gettin' back t'work.
Kris: Ah, alright. Wow, the floor is sparkling... Now that's what I call a thorough job/hard-worker.

Second conversation

Kris: ...That's odd. I'm sure the broken weapons were supposed to be deposited here...
Darros: Ahoy, Kris, me matey!
Kris: Ah, Sir Darros. Did you happen to see any broken weapons around?
Darros: Arr, broken weapons ye say? I've already disposed of them.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: What, again...? Are you always stealing other people's cleaning duties, Sir Darros?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: What, again...? Are you always stealing other people's cleaning duties, Darros?

Darros: Aye, I suppose yer right.
Kris: Why do you work so hard? You could leave some of it to me.
Darros: ...Did ye know I used t'be a pirate?
Kris: Yes, I did.
Darros: Arr, back then... I committed many a grave sin.
Kris: ...
Darros: I even cooked baby fishies that got themselves caught in the ship's net.
Kris: Say what?
Darros: And every now and then, I discarded leftover provisions in the sea...
Kris: Hey, wait a minute. Are those the grave sins you were talking about?
Darros: rr... Even now, thinkin' o' them sends shivers down me spine.

Third conversation

Kris: Sir Darros.
Darros: Ahoy, Kris.
Kris: I'd like to ask you something, may I?
Darros: Aye, ask away me matey.
Kris: If I recall correctly, a few days ago, you spoke about some grave sins you committed during your days of piracy...
Darros: Arr... that.
Kris: Forgive me for saying this, but I didn't think they were as grave as you led them to be. Sir Darros, why did you become a pirate?
Darros: ...Arr, a long time ago... I was one of the crewmen o' a fishin' boat. However, one day, our ship was attacked by pirates. So, I picked up an axe that happened t'be lyin' nearby. That's when I noticed the pirates didn't attack me.
Kris: Why not?
Darros: Just look at me. They mistook me for one o' them. And then, ever since... Arr, it be just like I told ye before.
Kris: Then, what else did you use to do?
Darros: The same things as now, t'be honest: Ship cleanin' and some odd jobs here and there.
Kris: ...Heh!
Darros: Oi, Kris. I saw ye laughin'.
Kris: Oh, I'm sorry.
Darros: Arr, that reminds me, Kris.
Kris: What is it?
Darros: What say ye ride me ship once this war is over? We have good food, too!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Yes, I'd love to. I'm sure it's the cleanest, tidiest ship around.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Yes, I'd be glad to. I'm sure it's the cleanest, tidiest ship around.

Kris and Roberto

First conversation

Kris: Sir Robert, there's hay on your back... Were you in the stable again?
Robert: Again, you say...? So my secret's been exposed.
Kris: I've seen you there rather frequently. You seem to be well accustomed to dealing with horses.
Robert: It's nothing special. I know a bit because I ride horses, that's all.
Kris: I see...
Robert: I'm a Grustian knight, but I hail from a slightly bizarre family. I've been riding horses a lot ever since I was a kid.
Kris: Ah, that explains it.
Robert: Explains what?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: The groom was mighty impressed. He said that you must really like horses to speak to them.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Oh no... The groom was mighty impressed. He said that you must really like horses to speak to them.

Robert: That guy talks too much. There's a foal over there right now.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Is that so?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Oh, is that so?

Robert: I think he'll let you see him if you ask.

Second conversation

Kris: Sir Robert, you're extremely familiar with horses and I was just curious... Can you understand what horses say?
Robert: That's an odd question. Hmm... Well, I can tell what they want and what they dislike, that's about it.
Kris: I see...
Robert: Disappointed?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Not at all! I asked because I heard there are people in this world who can understand what ponies say...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Not at all! I asked because, before, I heard there are people in this world who can understand what ponies say...

Robert: Really? Sounds like a lie to me...
Kris: But it'd be wonderful if it were true.
Robert: Indeed. But, well, if I could communicate with them, I'd probably have to apologize.
Kris: For what?
Robert: For getting them involved in a war.
Kris: I see... I'd do the same.

Third conversation

Robert: You really put your effort into everything...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Yes, I'm one of Prince Marth's Royal Guards after all.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Yes, since I'm one of Prince Marth's Royal Guards after all.

Robert: Are all Royal Guards jacks-of-all-trades? (If Kris is male)
Kris: Why does it feel like I've heard that line from someone else already...? Oh, that foal has been growing fast, hasn't he? He'll probably grow up to become a strong horse.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Why does it feel like I've heard that line from someone else already...? Oh, that foal has been growing fast, hasn't he? He puts a smile on my face.

Robert: Haha, indeed.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Sir Robert, you made me realize something important.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Sir Robert, you reminded me of something very important.
Robert: Hm? Kris: Not fighting is the best recourse.Of course, I already knew that was Prince Marth's desire, but... Until now... I believe I've been way too obsessed with obtaining more strength to battle.
Robert: So you've started to think that not fighting is best, after coming into contact with horses, who can't hold weapons? ...I see you've had a change of heart.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Yes, I've come to feel something I never felt before...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Yes, a little...

Robert: It batters your heart to see one of them hurt, doesn't it?
Kris: Yes, indeed. I saw a really injured horse this morning... Sir Robert, are you skilled in treating horses? Could you come check on it with me?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Yes, that's right. I saw a really injured horse this morning... Sir Robert, are you skilled in treating horses? Shall we check it together?

Robert: I see you've taken up yet another job already... Sure, let's go take a look.

Belf and Kris

First conversation

(If Kris is male)
Kris: Sir Belf... I know I'm being rude, but there's something I'd like to ask you.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Sir Belf... Sorry for the suddenness, but there's something I'd like to ask you.

Belf: I don't mind. What can I help you with?
Kris: Are you well-versed in etiquette?
Belf: Etiquette? Well, I have ordinary knowledge of it, but... Why do you ask?
Kris: It's embarrassing, but I'm bad with etiquette and decorum. I was just wondering if you could teach me...
Belf: Is that so? As far as I'm aware, you've been managing it flawlessly.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: No, not at all. I'm actually rather clumsy... For instance, castle manners... It quickly becomes apparent that I come from the countryside. Even recently, I got yelled at by Sir Jagen for running inside the castle...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: No, not at all. I'm actually rather clumsy... For instance, speech... I come from the countryside, so some sayings are difficult for me. Just lately, I bit my tongue trying to say "I see everyone is in good spirits"...

Belf: I see... In that case... I don't know how much help I'll be, but alright.

Second conversation

(If Kris is male)
Kris: Then, I'm counting on your assistance.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Then, if you please.

Belf: Yes, alright. By the way, was there a reason you asked me about etiquette, and not anyone else?
Kris: Oh, that's just the image I had of you... To me, you look like a person of fine upbringing.
Belf: You're a honest man/one... Do I really look that way?
Kris: Yeah, judging by your demeanor and table manners. That's why I thought you knew a lot about etiquette.
Belf: I had no conscience of that, but I suppose others would see it that way.
Kris: When I saw you open doors and let females go ahead of you, I knew it for sure.
(If Kris is male)
Belf: Anybody can open a door, though. Do you want to give it a try?
Kris: Huh, me? But I'd do it poorly.
Belf: That's highly unbecoming of you. Weren't you the one who was willing to try anything?
Kris: Ngh... I'll give it a shot, but don't say I didn't warn you...
(If Kris is female)
Belf: Your praise is an honor. Then, shall we start our speech training?
Kris: Y-yes. I'm ready.
Belf: You'll bite your tongue again if you're this nervous. First, try talking normally.
Kris: A-alright. I'll try it out.

Third conversation

(If Kris is male)
Kris: It's difficult getting used to it.
Belf: Used to what?
Kris: Doors, opening doors... How to make use of the distance and timing... Opening a door is far harder than fighting...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: It really is difficult, after all.
Belf: What is?
Kris: Speech... Breathing, timing, choosing pertinent words... To think speaking could be such a chore...

Belf: You've improved greatly.
Kris: R-really? Hearing you say that makes me wonder if I've finally become polite, or if you no longer care...
Belf: Well, even if you don't master etiquette, I think everyone already knows your nature anyway.
Kris: Huh?
Belf: Etiquette is just form, after all. There are many well-born people who are overly self-centered and thus unpleasant.
Kris: That might be true...
Belf: ...Still, you can't say it's wholly irrelevant, either. Oh, that reminds me, Kris. I believe your way of getting up from a seated position is rather lacking in grace.
Kris: What, really? ...Could I ask for some guidance?
Belf: Of course, do I have a choice?

Kris and Reiden

First conversation

Reiden: Training, huh? I see you're full of spirit today.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Sir Reiden? It's rare to see you around here.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Ah, Sir Reiden. It's rare to see you around here.

Reiden: Your willpower and vitality are admirable.
Kris: Not at all. It's all thanks to continuous training. ...Besides, you can easily handle this amount of training as well, right?
Reiden: The training I can handle... But weren't you checking around the platoons just a few days ago? And you even tinker with the food... Are all Royal Guards jacks-of-all-trades?
Kris: Y-you have good sources. Naturally my duty as a Royal Guard comes first. But I think it's equally important to forge bonds with my comrades.
Reiden: And why is that?
Kris: ...That's because I believe trust can save people.
Reiden: And you think that trust will allow you to save your liege... Is that it?
Kris: Exactly.
Reiden: Okay, well, I'm sorry for asking such a rude and contrived question.
Kris: No, no. Talking with you was an honor.

Second conversation

Reiden: ...I admit you've got stamina, but it's clear to me you're always overdoing it.
Kris: Are you talking about me?
(If Kris is male)
Reiden: You would do well to learn to leave some matters to others. What would happen if you were to collapse from exhaustion?
Kris: But...
(If Kris is female)
Reiden: You would do well to learn to leave some matters to others. You won't be young forever, after all.
Kris: Hey! How could you say that to a girl?

Reiden: Listen to me. One can grow by relying on others, too.
Kris: ...
Reiden: You have the stamina, so you afford to check on other units. You can also cook and clean. That isn't bad at all. But you can't do every single thing even if you're the only who can.
Kris: ...You might have a point. But when I think about it, it's hard to ask others when I could just do it myself...
Reiden: That might be true for you, Kris. Looking at you, I'm reminded of how I used to be.
Kris: How you used to be?
Reiden: Yeah, once, I couldn't rest until I had done everything myself, just like you. However, there's a limit to what one can do by themselves. ...I learned that the hard way, in one of my previous battles.

Third conversation

Reiden: I heard you volunteered to become an Altean knight, Kris.
Kris: Yes, that's correct. I knocked on the gate of Altea Castle because I wanted to serve Prince Marth.
Reiden: So you've chosen your liege yourself.
Kris: Yes. I'm extremely fortunate to serve Prince Marth.
Reiden: I can understand that. You see, I didn't have the opportunity of choosing my own liege. But I am proud of having served under an excellent general.
Kris: You mean... Sir Camus? If you speak of him like that, Sir Reiden, then I'm sure he was a great man.
Reiden: Indeed, he was. ...If something were to befall Prince Marth... I'm certain you'd feel just like we did, back then...
Kris: Sir Reiden? What do you mean?
Reiden: We'll talk about it IF that happens.

Beck and Kris

First conversation

Beck: Yo, 'afternoon.
Kris: Good afternoon, Sir Beck.
Beck: Oh, just call me Beck. Also, quit the formalities. Being formal makes you sound so cold and distant, don't you reckon? So, let's talk in a more natural way.
Kris: I see... Alright, got it. Then I'll do just that, Beck. Nice to meet you.
Beck: Yes, Sir/Dame Kris. I'm honored to make your acquaintance.
Kris: Er, weren't you being formal...? Oh well. I heard from Prince Marth. You used to be a ballistician, correct?
Beck: Yeah, I was originally a member of an army. Even after the war was over, I travelled the world with my ballista, but it eventually stopped movin'...
Kris: An accident?
Beck: No, actually... In order to move a ballista, we need the oil from a special fruit. However that fruit disappeared after the last war, see. So you can attack with a ballista, but not move it and therefore, you can't travel with it either. Gettin' it to places would be just too hard, see.
Kris: Ah, so that's why... Indeed, none of the enemy ballisticians we've faced in this war moved at all.
Beck: Yeah, that's why I decided to choose this guy to keep me company during my travels, instead of my old ballista. I call 'im Bonnie.
Kris: I see you've grown attached to him. He's a good horse.
Beck: A pony among ponies you could say.
Kris: I see.

Second conversation

Beck: Bonnie is really nice, see. He's a great listener, always listenin' to everything I say. I talk to 'im when I'm feelin' lonely.
Kris: You talk to him?
Beck: Yeah, Bonnie can understand what people say.
Kris: Really?
Beck: 'Course he can. Oh right, you want to try it out? Go on, say something to 'im.
Kris: Eh? Do I really have to?
Beck: 'Course you do.
Kris: Oh well... H-hello, Bonnie.
Beck: Look, Bonnie. He/She said "hello" to you, so, go on, greet 'im back. There, look. He made a "hello" face, didn't he?
Kris: R-really?
Beck: Go on and talk more to 'im.
Kris: Eh, um, alright. For how long have you been with your master?
Beck: Look, didn't he make a "'Alf a year, I s'pose. A lot has 'appened in this time. He rescued me, when I was gonna be thrown away for being too old. And now he's my master. He gives me carrots three times a day, they're my favorite." ...face just then?
Kris: I-is that so...?

Third conversation

Beck: Yo, Mister/Miss Kris. Good afternoon. I was just talking to Bonnie about you.
Kris: R-really?
Beck: Isn't that right, Bonnie? Look, isn't that an "Exactly" face?
Kris: I think that's just how you're feeling, but... Oh well. I brought a carrot for Bonnie today.
Beck: Thank you. Aren't you glad, Bonnie? Eh, Bonnie!? How could you...! That was just mean...
Kris: ...What did Bonnie say?
Beck: Please don't mind 'im. Bonnie is a bit foul-mouthed, but he's a nice fellow.
Kris: How long do you intend to continue with this act...?
Beck: I used to get food with this act when I lacked money during my travels, see.
Kris: So it really is an act!
Beck: Well well, your present is very appreciated nonetheless, Mister Kris. Look, isn't this a "thank you" face?
Kris: Bonnie's?
Beck: No, mine.

Athena and Kris

First conversation

Kris: So here you were, Miss Athena. It's almost time for the war council. We'd like you to attend as well.
Athena: Vorcounsel...? Vat is a vorcounsel? Is it round and sveet?
Kris: N-no, that's not it. A war council isn't something you eat... You see, a war council is a discussion with everyone, held before the next battle.
Athena: In that case, ve understand. Ve are in your debt. Ve are from foreign country, ve came riding the sea. The vords here, ve find difficult.
Kris: I see. Well, it can't be helped if you don't understand... I know, I could teach you all sorts of things, if you wish?
Athena: All sorts of things? You mean indecent things?
Kris: N-no, that's not it. Where on earth did you get that idea...? Anyway, if there's any word you don't understand, feel free to ask me anytime.
Athena: Ve are grateful. And glad because you are not indecent.
Kris: Thanks. Oh and "thanks" means...
Athena: Ve know that much. Stupid manchild/voman.
Kris: I-I'm sorry.

Second conversation

Kris: ...And so... Reconnaissance is checking on the enemy's conditions before the battle begins. I suppose that's about it. Did you understand, Miss Athena?
Athena: Yes. Ve are indebted. Ve learned a lot. It is all thanks to you, Kris.
Kris: No, I'm happy to be of service to you, Miss Athena.
Athena: But, not just the vords. This country's customs, the vay people live... They are very complicated. Ve are often very surprised.
Kris: Is life in your country that different from ours, Miss Athena?
Athena: Yes. Completely different. But ve came to this country. So, as sign of respect, ve must get used to the vay of life of this country.
Kris: I see... I think that's admirable.
Athena: In our country, ve have a saying. "If you enter snow country, it becomes snow country."
Kris: ...Is that saying really like that?
Athena: Ve don't know. Ve tried our best to translate into this country's language.

Third conversation

Athena: Kris, thanks to you, ve understood all sorts of things. Ve must thank you for everything. Ve are very grateful.
Kris: I'm glad for having spent time with you too, Miss Athena.
Athena: Ve vant to show our feelings to Kris. Ve vill apologize with our life.
Kris: Excuse me? No no, you used the wrong word again. Didn't you mean "thank", instead of "apologize"?
Athena: Yes. "Thank".
Kris: Oh.
(If Kris is male)
Athena: As thanks, ve vill become your bride.
Kris: Wha...!? M-Miss Athena... It seems you used the wrong word again.
Athena: Vat? Ve are mistaken? Then... Ve vill become Kris's voman?
Kris: That's even wronger! Er... I don't know what kind of thanks you had in mind. But it's fine. I've already received enough.
(If Kris is female)
Athena: As thanks, ve vill become Kris's little sister.
Kris: Eh...!? M-Miss Athena... It seems you used the wrong word again.
Athena: Vat? Ve are mistaken? Then... Ve vill become Kris's mother?
Kris: Both are wrong. Er... I don't know what kind of thanks you had in mind. But it's fine. I've already received enough.

Athena: Ven? Ve don't remember giving any.
Kris: Be it in the battlefield or outside of it, we've always been together. You're a precious comrade to me. The bond that was born between us... cannot be replaced.
Athena: Kris... Ve feel the same. Even if the vords are different, and the lifestyles are different, bonds beteen people are the same... Ve feel a bond with you as vell, Kris...
Kris: I see. Miss Athena knows the word "bond".
Athena: ...Ve know that much. Stupid Kris.
Kris: I-I'm sorry.

Xane and Kris

First conversation

Kris: Sir Xane! Sir Xaaaane! Oh, c'mon, the war council is about to start. Just where has Sir Xane gone...?
Kris: Oh, c'mon, the war council is about to start. Just where has Sir Xane gone...?
Kris: Huh...? Y-you're...?
Kris: Y-you too...?
Kris: I am Kris...
Kris: I am Kris...
Kris: I-it can't be... Damn... Then, this must be an illusion created by the Dark Pontifex...! I won't lose to an illusion... Prepare yourself!
Kris: Hey, wait wait!
Xane: Don't hurt me, it's me, it's me! Couldn't you tell it was a joke!?
Kris: S-sir Xane!
Xane: Hey, you and princey take everythin' far too seriously. So I thought I'd try lightenin' the mood. But it looks like my joke backfired. I thought you were going to kill me...
Kris: F-forgive me. But Sir Xane, you should cut the bad jokes.
Xane: Well well, I didn't mean any harm y'know. I just wanted to put my special ability to good use...
Kris: Check me out. I look exactly like you, don't I?
Kris: Well, you might be right, but...
Kris: Hm? Aw, shucks. I thought I looked the same, but I guess I was a little off.
Kris: Huh? Where?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Well, I look a bit more manly. The real thing looks a little lame compared to me...
Kris: Please leave me alone.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Well, I look more feminine and my body is sexier. The real thing looks kinda manly and burly, I guess...
Kris: ...Sir Xane... Could you please repeat what you just said?
Kris: W-wait, l-let me explain...! Don't kill me or torture me or gimme a fate worse than death...! I-I was kiddin', see? Just kiddin'. Hahaha! See ya later!
Kris: Sir Xane, come back here!

Second conversation

Kris: Sir Xane...! He seems to have gone elsewhere yet again...
Marth: Hello, Kris.
Kris: Oh, sire!
Marth: What excellent timing. There's something I want to ask of you.
Kris: Yes, sire? Anything for you.
(If Kris is male)
Marth: Thank you. Then... Could you please do a handstand and bark for me?
(If Kris is female)
Marth: Thank you. Then... Once this war is over, would you allow me the honor of being your husband?

Kris: ...Hi, Sir Xane.
Xane: Damn, you saw through me.
Kris: Of course. Prince Marth would never say something that ridiculous.
Xane: That's funny... I could fool the others just fine... Oh well, see ya.
Kris: ...Hold it.
Xane: W-what is it?
Kris: Who else did you deceive while imitating Prince Marth? Tell me all the details, now.
Xane: Gah!
Kris: I cannot allow anybody who would tarnish Prince Marth's reputation to exist... Depending on what you've done-
Xane: Stop it, you're scarin' me! I-I was just kidding!
Kris: Sir Xane!

Third conversation

Jagen: Kris, I know it's most sudden, but... I believe I've fallen in love with you.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Why thank you, Sir Xane.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Why hello, Sir Xane.

Jagen: What, you knew it was me already?!
Xane: Meh, you're boring.
Kris: I've seen you fooling people left and right, so I've gotten used to it already. But, Sir Xane. Even though you've been with us for so long... You never show us what you're really thinking.
Xane: ... Well, yeah. I'm not human, you see. Humans or dragons... I'm not even sure which of them I should support.
Kris: ...
Xane: Well, I like you and princey. You're pretty cool, for humans. Yet, you're still humans. And humans are born and die in the blink of an eye... The deeper our connection becomes, the lonelier I'll be once we part.
Kris: Sir Xane...
Xane: Those who tried to abandon their draconic heritage and become human... couldn't become either. Some couldn't abandon their draconic side, while others couldn't understand how to be human. Some were hurt when trying to destroy humans, while others were hurt because humans didn't accept them... All in all, they're truly miserable folks.
Kris: You're one of them yourself, aren't you? You've experienced... some of that before, haven't you? You tried to live together with humans... But couldn't. You don't hate humans, but...
Xane: ...I wonder. I've lived for too long, so I've forgotten. But what's happenin' in this battle... ain't bad as what happened in the past...

Tiki and Kris

First conversation

Tiki: Huh? What's that?
Kris: Oh, this? This is a fried apple. You remove the apple's core, add butter and sugar and fry it. We used to fry and eat old apples like this quite often, back in my village.
Tiki: Is it tasty?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Yes, want a bite?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Of course. Do you want a bite?

Tiki: Yeah, I do.
Kris: Alright, then here you go. It's hot so be careful.
Tiki: Thanks... It is hot...
Kris: You'll need to blow on it so you won't burn your tongue. Here, like this.
Tiki: Okay, got it. Huff, huff. Munch, munch...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Haha, yes, just like that. But, even though she's just a little girl now... She becomes a mighty dragon during battle... The dragonkin sure is mysterious...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Heehee, yes, just like that. But, even though she's just a little girl now... She becomes a mighty dragon during battle... The dragonkin sure is mysterious...

Tiki: Munch?
Kris: No, nothing. Do you want more?
Tiki: Munch!

Second conversation

Tiki: Thanks for earlier, Kris-Mar!
Kris: ...Kris-Mar?
Tiki: Hm? What's wrong? Can't I call you that?
Kris: Well, it sounds rather odd, don't you think?
Tiki: But, Mar-Mar didn't tell me it was odd. Mar-Mar and Kris-Mar really suits!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: If Prince Marth is okay with it, then I suppose I've no reason to complain... But, um. You could call me in some other way, too. For instance...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Well, I guess I can't complain... Oh right. You could call me in some other way, too. For instance...

Tiki: "Uncool Kris"? Like other children call Ban-Ban?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: ...You meant "uncle", right? No, that wouldn't work. I'm not that old yet.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: ...You meant "uncle", right? No, that wouldn't work. I'm not a man, nor am I that old.

Tiki: Then, how about "Lord Kris"? Just like Lord Gotoh?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: That doesn't sound right either. I'm not a noble or anyone that important... Oh, alright, "Kris-Mar" is fine I guess.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: That doesn't sound right either. I'm not a noble or anyone that important... Okay, I guess I'm fine with "Kris-Mar".

Tiki: Okay, Kris-Mar!

Third conversation

Tiki: Hey hey, Kris-Mar!
Kris: Hm?
Tiki: A story. Tell me a story!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Alright, I got it. Looks like I've no choice in the matter. Let me think... Hmm, let's try this. Once upon a time, in a distant land... Oh, that reminds me, that happened a long time ago too...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Okay, alright. Come over here. Let me think... Hmm, let's try this. Once upon a time, in a distant land... Oh, that reminds me, that happened a long time ago too...

Tiki: Huh?
Kris: Once upon a time... Back when I still lived with my grandfather... A little girl appeared in our village all of a sudden. She was very cheerful and cute, like, yes... like you, Tiki.
Tiki: Hmm... Then? Then?
Kris: That time, there were bad bandits nearby who attacked the village. An old man in the village decided to protect the village from the bandits. But the old man was, of course, already old... Chances were he would be defeated by the bandits.
Tiki: Yes, yes...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: The old man's grandson disobeyed his order and chased after him. Even if he was unable to, that boy wanted to protect his grandfather. However, when he tried to enter the bandits' hideout... The hideout had completely disappeared, as if blown away by a fierce storm.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: The old man's granddaughter disobeyed his order and chased after him. Even if she was unable to, that girl wanted to protect her grandfather. However, when he tried to enter the bandits' hideout... The hideout had completely disappeared, as if blown away by a fierce storm.

Tiki: ...Yes... Hm...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: The bandits fled from there somehow, but were soon captured by the knights. And everyone lived happily ever after... But, the girl had disappeared. The villagers were left puzzled by the bizarre situation. But the religious elders claimed it was Lord Naga's guidance. It was as if...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: The bandits fled from there somehow, but were soon captured by the knights. And everyone lived happily ever after... But, the little girl had disappeared. The villagers were left puzzled by the bizarre situation. But the religious elders claimed it was Lord Naga's guidance. It was as if...

Tiki: ...Zzz...zzz...
Kris: As if... Tiki?
Tiki: Zzz...zzz...
Kris: Did you fall asleep? Tiki, let's go back. You'll catch a cold if you sleep here.
Tiki: Yesz...zzz... ...Kris...
Kris: I have no other option, huh...? It'd be a pity to wake her up. I guess I'll carry her on my back. Here Tiki, let's go.
Tiki: Yesz...

Est and Kris

First conversation

Est: Ha! Yaah!
Kris: Miss Est, are you training?
Est: Why, yes. It's been a while since I last battled, so my skills have gotten a little rusty. I need to catch up to the others as soon as I can, while this war rages on.
Kris: I heard from Prince Marth that you fought in the previous war as a pegasus knight of Macedon.
Est: Yep, together with Princess Minerva and my sisters. Hee hee, we sure fought a lot! When we put in our full effort, there's no enemy we can't strike down. Just wait and see!
Kris: Haha, that's most reassuring.

Second conversation

Est: Oh, excellent timing. Kris, could you taste this please?
Kris: Is this stew...? Miss Est, you can cook too?
Est: 'Course I can, I'll have you know I cooked for Abel every day. So, don't be shy and eat it!
Kris: ... It's so sweet!
Est: What, really? But I cooked it like normal.
Kris: O-oh, I see... Excuse me, I need some water.
Est: Hmm, was it too sweet? Abel always told me it was delicious...
Kris: I suppose it's no problem if you two appreciate this flavor. This stew might just be a symbol of your happy life together.
Est: Tee hee, perhaps...
Kris: Thanks for the meal.

Third conversation

Est: ...And then, Abel and I started living together after that. I was filled with joy, since I loved him dearly... Oftentimes I felt a little lonely, because I couldn't see my sisters... But Abel was always with me.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: How enviable. It sounds like you two lived happily together.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I'm envious. It sounds like you two lived happily together.

Est: Yes... But... but... How should I say this...?
Kris: Miss Est...?
Est: ...You see, I brought great suffering to Abel. He was forced to betray Altea, because I was taken hostage... He's too nice and doesn't think of himself... Because I was there, Abel had to go through such an ordeal... If not for me, Abel would be happier...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Miss Est... I'm no good with words, but I tell you it wasn't your fault. You shouldn't keep blaming yourself...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Miss Est... Don't cry. You didn't do anything wrong. Please don't keep blaming yourself...

Est: ... ...Thank you, Kris. You're very good at comforting. Tee hee... How embarrassing. I feel like a child again. When I was younger, my sisters would rush to comfort me when I cried. Kris, I feel somewhat relieved when I'm with you...
Kris: If you believe I'm worthy, you can find me anytime. It would be my honor.
Est: Yes, thank you, Kris...

Dolph and Kris

First conversation

Dolph: Man, this is good! I could eat this all day. Today's food is incredible!
Kris: Sir Dolph. Lunchtime was supposed to be over a while ago.
Dolph: Hm, you're, if I'm not mistaken...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Kris.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: My name is Kris.

Dolph: Oh, just as I thought! I saw you. You did a really good job!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Well, I don't mind being praised for fighting, but...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Why, thank you. I can't say my performance in battle was that great, but...

Dolph: What are you talking about! I'm talking about the food.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: The food?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Eh? The food?

Dolph: Indeed. The speed, quantity, order of the dishes... There was nothing I could criticize!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I-I see. I suppose it's because, when it came to food, my grandfather taught me strictly. ...However. Even so, the quantity you're eating is clearly excessive.
Dolph: What are you talking about!? A knight must fight, as a shield to his people. For that purpose, what's more important than building your body!? Can you answer that? Sir Kris...?
Kris: I know what you mean. But still, you're clearly...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I-I see. I suppose it's because, when it came to food, my grandfather taught me strictly. ...However. Even so, isn't this quantity excessive?
Dolph: What are you talking about!? A knight must fight, as a shield to his people. For that purpose, what's more important than building your body!? Can you answer that? Dame Kris...?
Kris: I understand what you want to say. But still, you're clearly...

Dolph: What?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Eating too much. Your belly is fat, Sir Dolph.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Eating too much. I can see... flabs of skin in the gaps of your armor...

Dolph: Guh...!

Second conversation

Dolph: Yes! This is good, really good! This is too good to be mere military provisions!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Sir Dolph. It seems you've dined five times more than the others.
Dolph: Oh, Sir Kris! Say, you want some?
Kris: No, thanks. But anyway, can you really eat that much?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Sir Dolph. It seems you've dined a few times more than the others...
Dolph: Oh, Dame Kris! Say, you want some?
Kris: No! I decline. How dreadful... But anyway, this quantity... Can you really eat it all?

Dolph: Yes, and I will!! I MUST eat!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Hm? Wait a minute. Are you forcing yourself to eat this much?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Eh? Don't tell me you're... forcing yourself to eat this much?

Dolph: ...Sir/Dame Kris. Do you remember what I told you earlier about what being a knight entails?
Kris: Yes. Being a shield to his people. For that purpose, a strong body is needed, right?
Dolph: That's right. But, can you answer me this? What does being a shield mean?
Kris: When the time comes, you stand in the front, protect the people, and defeat the enemy.
Dolph: Yes. Good answer. But, that's a sword. Not a shield.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Hm? Well, I suppose.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Oh... You could say that indeed.

Dolph: There was one time when I stood in the battlefield unarmed.
Kris: Wha...!?

Third conversation

Kris: Sir Dolph. I see you're eating again, today.
Dolph: Oh, Sir/Dame Kris! Why don't you join me?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Yes, I will.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Yes, for a short while.

Dolph: ...You didn't complain about this meal, today.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: On that subject, I want to hear the rest of our previous conversation. Then story of when you stood unarmed in the battlefield, Sir Dolph.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: On that subject... May I ask for the continuation of our previous conversation? About when you stood unarmed in the battlefield, Sir Dolph.

Dolph: Okay. Then, listen while we eat. I was member of a small platoon, which had been captured by the enemy. Shortly afterwards, we heard that somebody had come to rescue us. It was Prince Marth.
Kris: So Prince Marth...
Dolph: But, at the same time, our executions had started, too. Among us, there was an archer and a bishop. I couldn't let a single arrow reach them. But, with only one body, you can only protect one ally from one foe. It's simple as that.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: That's... Yes, indeed.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Yes...

Dolph: Thankfully, there was another man in the platoon who could be a shield with me. Thanks to that, we were all saved.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: All of you? That's amazing...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: All of you...?! That's wonderful....

Dolph: But that's only because Prince Marth came early. Had he came a little later, who knows what would have happened.
Kris: So that's why a strong body is important. I understand now.
Dolph: Currently, there are many people in our army who excel at offense. That's exactly why I can focus on defending.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: ...Thanks, Sir Dolph. When this war is over, I want to eat with you again.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: ...Thanks, Sir Dolph. When this war is over, I'd like to eat with you once again.

Dolph: Yes!! I'll gladly accept your challenge for an eating contest!!
Kris: ...I... didn't mention a word about an eating contest though...

Abel and Kris

First conversation

Abel: You're... Kris, right? Why the befuddled look on your face?
Kris: Oh, Sir Abel! The truth is I'm trying to light a fire, but to no avail. I was considering going to the storehouse to collect another flintstone, but...
Abel: Ah, I have a flintstone if you need one. Here, take it.
Kris: Oh, thanks.
Abel: Use this tinderbox as well, if you think it'll be useful. I have some pieces of wood, too...
Kris: Y-you're awfully well prepared, Sir Abel.
Abel: I used to run a small shop in Altea, you see. I dealt with these kind of items there.
Kris: So that's why. In that case, should I be paying you...?
Abel: Nah, no need. Just tell me whenever you want them.
Kris: I appreciate the favor, but... Is it really okay? Won't it be problematic for a merchant if you give away things for free?
Abel: Yeah, if you put it that way... Est often got mad at me for it, saying the shop would go bankrupt because I'm too nice...

Second conversation

Kris: I heard you fought in the previous war as a knight of Altea, Sir Abel.
Abel: Yeah. I was particularly close to Cain. We were friends and rivals who endeavored to surpass each other.
Kris: May I ask why you resigned from knighthood?
Abel: I wasn't discontent or anything. However, I had this dream of opening a shop in Altea. To live a quiet life with my wife, while running a small shop... I longed for a simple life like that. Of course, part of me still wanted to serve as an Altean knight.
Kris: Yes. I can tell that intention clearly from when I see you fight.
Abel: Being a knight and opening a shop... Both were very precious to me. I worried about it for a long time and in the end chose the shop, but leaving the knighthood was hard. When you have two things precious to you, it's quite hard to achieve them both...

Third conversation

Abel: ...I met Est during the previous war. She was cheerful and pure, and we were drawn to each other as we fought together. It was a modest life, but I was really happy to run the shop with her.
Kris: Just by listening to you describe it, I can already picture your days of happiness. Once this war is over, that peace should return.
Abel: ...You're right. By the way, do you perchance have a lover?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: No, I am a knight after all.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Huh... But I'm a knight.

Abel: It isn't written anywhere that knights are forbidden to love. Don't you think Prince Marth would be happy if you managed to find yourself a lover?
Kris: ...I-I'll do my best.
Abel: But, that's right... If you do find somebody precious to you, be careful. If you have two people important to you, you might be driven into a dilemma...
Kris: Sir Abel...
Abel: Back when Est was taken hostage by the Archanean army... That time, I had to make a terrible choice. Est or Prince Marth? Which one should I choose? Both were precious to me...
Kris: ...
Abel: In the end... I couldn't choose either. No matter how much I pondered, I just couldn't. When you have two things precious to you, it's quite hard to achieve them both... And even now, after all that... I don't know what I should have done.
Kris: I believe you did the best you could, Sir Abel. And besides, what's important, more than the past... is the future.
Abel: You're right, you hit the nail on the head. Thanks, Kris. After this war is over... I want you to come to my shop. I'll give you a personal discount.
Kris: Thanks, Sir Abel.

Macellan and Kris

First conversation

Macellan: Excuse me!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Wah, who's there? Could you be quieter in the kitchen, please?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Wah, don't startle me like that...! May I ask you to be quieter in the kitchen?

Macellan: Sorry! But, there's a urgent matter...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Huh, what is it!?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Ah! Don't tell me... an enemy ambush!?

Macellan: Who made today's soup?
Kris: Hm? That would be me, but...
Macellan: Oh, so it was YOU! I am Macellan!! Can I ask your name?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I am Kris. I think I seasoned it right... Did you like it?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I am Kris. I tried to season it properly... Did you enjoy it?

Macellan: No, quite the opposite! It was really horrible!!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: W-what!?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Eh!?

Macellan: The ingredients were good! But the seasoning wasn't! It ruined everything!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Y-you...!
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Ooooh...

Macellan: That's all! Excuse me!!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Now, talk about a rude fellow...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: ...That was kind of frustrating...

Second conversation

Macellan: Excuse me!!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Sir Macellan. Please be quiet in the kitchen.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Sir Macellan. Could you please be quiet in the kitchen?

Macellan: Oh, sorry! When I have a resolve, my body moves by itself!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: So, what is it this time? Did you not like the soup's taste again?
Macellan: That's a good guess, Sir Kris! You're exactly right!!
Kris: ...Then, may I ask for your opinion? What part of it did you not like?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Then... may I ask what you want? Don't tell me you didn't appreciate the soup's flavor again...?
Macellan: That's a good guess, Dame Kris! You're exactly right!!
Kris: ...Then, please tell me for reference: What part of it did you not like?

Macellan: Hmm, the order the ingredients were added! Also, the way you heated them.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I see. I understand.
Macellan: Hm? Do you have some clue?
Kris: Yes, this is a soup my grandfather used to make for me. I tried to learn how to make it by watching him, but... The taste isn't quite the same. Which worried me a bit.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Oh, I knew it... I understand now.
Macellan: Hm? Do you have a clue after all?
Kris: This is a soup my grandfather used to make for me. So I tried to learn how to make it by watching him, but... No matter what I do, the taste just isn't the same. It made me worry.

Macellan: Oh, so you've learned by watching!! That's quite...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Hm?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Eh?

Macellan: No, I suppose you still lack diligence!!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Doh. But, that reminds me. Say, Sir Macellan. Could you check its taste for me later?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Ooh...! That's the truth of the matter. Say, Sir Macellan. Could I ask you to check its taste for me later?

Macellan: Alright, leave it to me!!!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: You're awfully loud...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: You're awfully loud, aren't you...?

Third conversation

Macellan: At last...
Kris: Yes, finally...! After many failures, the ideal soup is complete!
Macellan: Come, Sir/Dame Kris. Taste it.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Alright, here I go. Guh...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Okay, here I come! Hmm...

Macellan: How is it?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: ... Sir Macellan, you taste it.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: ... Sir Macellan, please have a spoon of it.

Macellan: Huh? Alright, I will. Guh... T-this is..!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Bad, isn't it?
Macellan: Yes, terrible!
Kris: Damn, why...?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Not very good... right?
Macellan: Yes, it's horrible!
Kris: Hmm, but why, I wonder?

Macellan: Guh... I can feel the taste of the raw vegetables. Maybe it was a peeling issue.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Ah...! I see, that's it!! I had a suspicion. If you asked me, I couldn't think of another cause. Sir Macellan. I want to try and complete this soup.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Yes, that must be it!! I had a suspicion. If you asked me, I couldn't think of any another possibility. ...Sir Macellan. I want to complete this soup, somehow.

Macellan: Oh!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I believe I'll need more advice, just like you're giving me now.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: For that purpose, I'm sure I'll need more advice, just like you're giving me now.

Macellan: Mwahaha! Of course you will!!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Gah...! So, Sir Macellan, I wonder if you could give me your assistance from now on?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: ...Then, um... Sir Macellan, I wonder if you could check its taste for me, from now on?

Macellan: I don't mind, but... I have one condition.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: What is it?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Yes? What is it?

Macellan: From now on, call me "master"!!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Wha, so it's come to this... Then, alright. Master! Since I'm your apprentice now, I'd like you to drop the sir.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Eeh!? Don't tell me it's come to this...? Very well then. Master! Since I'm now your apprentice, I'd like you to drop the dame.

Macellan: Alright, got it!! Kris!!!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: There's no stopping your loudness, huh...?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Oh dear. There's no stopping your loudness, huh...?

Astram and Kris

First conversation

Kris: Oh...! Astram... No, Sir Astram.
Astram: ... Is that weapon for training?
Kris: Yes.
Astram: ...What's wrong, why won't you begin? Or would you rather... we continue our fight from before?
Kris: ...
Astram: Chiasmir Bridge, Khadein, and then Altea Castle... The two of us have fought many times as enemies. I'm sure you must harbor some resentment towards me.
Kris: ...Prince Marth has accepted you. Therefore, you're our ally. ...However, I'd be lying if I said I held no ill feelings towards you.
Astram: ...Naturally. Then, shall we begin?
Kris: I have no interest in a battle to the death. However, if you want an one-on-one duel, then I'd love to.
Astram: Excellent. If that's what you choose, then I shall be your opponent...

Second conversation

Kris: ...Sir Astram.
Astram: Somebody interrupted our last duel. I'm sure you weren't fully satisfied. So, shall we continue it now?
Kris: Yes, I'd love to. ...
Astram: What's wrong, why are you hesitating? You've been fighting excellently. There's no reason for you to hesitate.
Kris: I've been thinking about my reason to fight you. Whether this would be proof of my loyalty to Prince Marth or not... That's my only concern.
Astram: ...I'm your enemy, am I not? Is loyalty more important?
Kris: That's right. Do you find that odd?
Astram: No, I'm the same. Nothing is more important to me than my loyalty to Princess Nyna.
Kris: ...I see, so that's the kind of knight you are. That's why you pursued us relentlessly, and why you're here with us now...
Astram: That's true. Everything derives from my loyalty to the princess.
Kris:
(If Kris is male)
...I changed my mind, Sir Astram. Let's leave our duel for another day.
(If Kris is female)
...Sir Astram. Let's leave our duel for another day.
Astram: Fine. I'll be your opponent anytime.)

Third conversation

Kris: Sir Astram.
Astram: Kris.
Kris: When I fought beside you, I understood something. In the beginning, you were our enemy - one I had sworn to strike down with my own hands. However, you... aren't a bad person. Even I know that much.
Astram: ... I might have given you the wrong idea, but I don't wish to fight you anymore. Now, I just... ...wish to apologize to you all. That's it.
Kris: Apologize...?
Astram: I didn't expect to obtain that forgiveness through words. So, at the very least, I hoped to use a duel as an apology.
Kris: So in order to apologize to us, you accepted my challenge, even though I considered you an enemy? Even if it wasn't a duel to the death, didn't you consider the possibility... that I could try and kill you?
Astram: ...I couldn't help it. I didn't know any other way to apologize.
Kris:
(If Kris is male)
...You're a clumsy man, aren't you? But, I might have misunderstood you.
(If Kris is female)
...You're really clumsy, aren't you? But, I might have misunderstood you.
Astram: ...Kris.
Kris:
(If Kris is male)
Sir Astram. I want to test you. I'd like to duel with you right now. However... Not by clashing anger with anger... But in deference to each other, seeking to best each other in battle.
(If Kris is female)
Sir Astram. I wish to duel with you right now. However... Not by clashing anger with anger... But in deference to each other, seeking to best each other in battle.

Astram: Very well, I accept.

Katarina and Kris

First conversation

Katarina: Hello Kris. Are you training today, as well?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Yes. It's something I must do everyday, after all.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Yes. It's important to do it everyday, after all.

Katarina: ...
Kris: Hmm? What's wrong?
Katarina: Oh, it's nothing... I was just watching you, Kris.
Kris: Well, I know that, but... Don't you want to ask me something?
Katarina: Ah, well, er... Kris, is there anything you'd want me to do for you?
Kris: Something I'd want you to do?
Katarina: Yes. After all, it's all thanks to you, Kris, that I can stand here like this... So, I want to repay you. I'll do anything for you, Kris.
Kris: A-anything?
Katarina: Y-yes... ...I'd do... anything...
Kris: ...I-I see. Then, could you train with me?
Katarina: Huh...? Is that all?
Kris: Yes, training becomes more intense when you practice with others.
Katarina: All right. Then, I'll do it with you.

Second conversation

Katarina: ...
Kris: Katarina?
Katarina: Oh, Kris.
Kris: Hm? What's that?
Katarina: Huh, um...
Kris: A beaded ornament? It looks pretty old.
Katarina: Yes, I received this many years ago... It was a gift from Kleine.
Kris: Kleine... A comrade from the organization you used to belong to, right?
Katarina: Yes. Kleine was an orphan, just like me... Today is our birthday, mine and hers.
Kris: ...
Katarina: Actually, we don't really have birthdays, since we were both tossed away unwanted. But one day, Kleine asserted that this day was her birthday... Then, she demanded to receive a birthday gift from me. And when I finally found a gift for her, she gave me this in return. "I'll allow you to have the same birthday as me", she said... ......
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Katarina... I understand how you feel, but don't think too deeply about it.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Katarina... I understand how you feel, but don't think too deeply about it. I'm right by your side.

Katarina: Yes... Thank you.

Third conversation

Katarina: Kris, this war will soon be over, won't it?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Yes. We'll win. And then we'll usher in an age of peace, led by Prince Marth.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Yes. And once it's over... Nobody will need to die any more. And then we'll usher in an age of peace, led by Prince Marth.

Katarina: Yes... Kris, I'm happy I could be with you thus far. Ever since I first met you... The memories of our time together are my dearest treasures. They're precious to me...
Kris: You don't need to give those memories that much importance. Katarina, you'll be with me for now on, too... We'll build many more happy memories together.
Katarina: Yes, Kris...
Kris: The war council is about to start. Let's go, Katarina.
(If Kris is male)
Katarina: Ah, yes. T-there's something I need to do... It won't take long, I'll be there later.
Kris: Alright.
Katarina: ... ...Kris... I like you, Kris. E-er... I don't mind not being your first. Or even if you like other girls, Kris... If you talk to me every now and then... Just by doing that, you'll make me happy. So... Kris...
Kris: Katarina?
Katarina: Eek! A-ah... I-I'm s-sorry! Kris, um, see you later!
Kris: Oh, hey! Katarina...?
(If Kris is female)
Katarina: Yes...

Tomas and Kris

First conversation

Tomas: Alright, don't move an inch... or else, I'll miss my mark... Yes. Like that. Stay still, stay still...
Kris: ... Say Tomas, can I...
Tomas: You promised you'd stick with me! It's all right! Trust me and stay still!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Bah, fine, whatever!
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Ooh, do as you wish!

Tomas: Haaah!
Kris: Nngh!
Tomas: WHOOO!!! I-I did it!
Kris: H...? How weird. I'm alive.
Tomas: Please, you're being rude. It was a huge success! Here, take a gander! I hit right in the heart of the apple, see!
Kris: Hmm... good grief. You're right, sorry for doubting you. I was worried all this time that you'd create a hole in my head if you missed your mark...
Tomas: Thank you for your co-operation! Truth is, I had only trained with dolls so far. Now, I have even more confidence! It's all thanks to you, Kris!
Kris: Wait... what...?

Second conversation

Kris: Tomas, practicing with your bow again? I see you're earnest as always.
Tomas: Of course! I still have to become much, much better. I have a debt of gratitude with Prince Marth, and I have to repay it by taking down enemy after enemy.
Kris: Oh, so that's why. You're a nice guy/good man, Tomas. Oh yeah, do tell me if there's anything I can do to help you.
Tomas: Oh? Then, I'll accept your offer. Could you put an apple on your head and stand still, just like last time?
Kris: Anything but that.
Tomas: Ready, go!

Third conversation

Tomas: Haha, that was incredible wasn't it? Did you see it, Kris?
Kris: Yeah, but if you ask me, it was more like...
Tomas: Man, it swept over your head and THEN hit the apple!
Kris: Did you forget it also grazed Sir Jagen's throat when he was passing by...? I'll never, ever forget the wrath in Sir Jagen's face at that time.
Tomas: Sir Jagen's tempestuous and unending sermon was just as incredible!
Kris: He even got angry at me, too... Honestly. We're lucky nothing bad happened since Prince Marth stuck up for us, but...
Tomas: Yeah, Prince Marth is really kind. I must polish my bow skills more and more so I can repay my debt!
Kris: You're really stubborn aren't you, Tomas...? Oh well, if you're going to train now anyway, I suppose I'll keep you company. ...We'll be in trouble if somebody else got hurt, after all.
Tomas: Yay! Thank you! Then, please take this! Thanks!
Kris: Huh? A grape? Wait, didn't your target shrink too much all of sudden?
Tomas: Ready, go!

Sheena and Kris

First conversation

Kris: Phew, I'll leave today's training at this... and take a well-earned rest. Oh, Lady Sheena.
Sheena: You are... Sir/Dame Kris. You have my thanks for saving the people of Gra in the previous battle.
Kris: I'm flattered. However, the one who gave us the orders was Prince Marth.
Sheena: Indeed. I think I shall thank Prince Marth again later.
Kris: ...By the way, Lady Sheena.
Sheena: W-what is it?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: This is the lounge, so... do you really need to be wearing all that heavy armor?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: This is the lounge, so... wouldn't it be better to be rid of your armor?

Sheena: Meh, you... you're not wrong.
Kris: Then, let me help you. It must be really heavy...
Sheena: No, I'm fine! Erm...
Kris: What's wrong?
Sheena: Sorry! I've remembered some urgent matters that require my immediate attention. ...Excuse me!
Kris: Ah, Lady Sheena! Something fell from your armor... Oh, she's gone already. Well, this is... ...a doll?

Second conversation

Sheena: Tsk, I can't find it... If anybody gets wind of this, I'll...!
Kris: Ah, Lady Sheena!
Sheena: Gah, Sir/Dame Kris! What are you doing here!?
Kris: Huh!? What... am I doing here? This is the lounge.
Sheena: A-ah, right.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Oh, that reminds me. Lady Sheena. I believe you dropped this. It's a rare doll, by the looks of it.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Oh, that reminds me. Lady Sheena. I believe you dropped this. It's such a cute doll.

Sheena: ...AHH!!! Why, why is it with you...?!
Kris: You dropped it when we talked earlier.
Sheena: Ohh... My greatest blunder...
Kris: Huh? You're... exaggerating.
Sheena: You must be disappointed, no? That the princess of a kingdom would possess such a hobby...
Kris: Well, it was surprising for sure, but I wouldn't say disappointing...
Sheena: ...This is a memento of my late mother. Since I'm faint of heart, I secretly carry this inside my armor... It's highly unbecoming of a princess.
Kris: I see.
Sheena: Yes... if the people were to know this, I'd never be able to show my face as the princess of Gra again. Fare thee well, Sir/Dame Kris. Please forget about me...
Kris: What, wait Lady Sheena!?

Third conversation

Kris: Lady Sheena! Please wait!
Sheena: ...What is it, Sir/Dame Kris? If you wish to ridicule me, I'll accept it gracefully. "Sheena the Doll Princess." I could... live with that.
Kris: I have no such intention. In fact, I feel like I understand you better now, Lady Sheena.
Sheena: ...You're kind, Sir/Dame Kris. However, there is no point in pitying me.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: No, this isn't pity. ...Please listen to me. In the previous battle, I... I took a good look at Gra's soldiers. They were all novices, clearly lacking in combat ability.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I'm not pitying you. ...Please listen to me. I took a good look at Gra's soldiers, in the previous battle. They were all novices, clearly lacking in combat ability.

Sheena: ...
Kris: However, they didn't retreat. Do you know why?
Sheena: ...Because they loved Gra, their country...?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: That's right. As well as the princess they supported enthusiastically... In other words, you, Lady Sheena. You think your people would be disappointed by your memento? Aren't you being unfair to them?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Yes. As well as the princess they supported enthusiastically... In other words, you, Lady Sheena. You think your people would be disappointed by your memento? Aren't you being unfair to them?

Sheena: You... you're right. It seems I was foolish. ...I'm glad I could realize that. It's all thanks to you, Sir/Dame Kris.
Kris: No, not at all. I just put my feelings into words.
(If Kris is male)
Sheena: I see. I'm a little envious. ...I wish he would put his feelings into words, too...
Kris: Hm?
Sheena: N-no, it's nothing. I thank you for setting me straight, Sir Kris..
(If Kris is female)
Sheena: I see. I'm a little envious.
Kris: ...Oh, yes. One more thing.
Sheena: What is it?
Kris: I like cute things, too.
Sheena: Dame Kris...

Samson and Kris

First conversation

Samson: ...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Hm, is that... Sir Samson? Is he meditating? What amazing concentration... It's like time is standing still around him.
Samson: Sir Kris?
Kris: Sorry, Sir Samson. I disturbed you, didn't I?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Oh, that's... Sir Samson. He's meditating. What incredible concentration... It feels like time has stood still around him...
Samson: Dame Kris?
Kris: Forgive me, Sir Samson. I didn't wish to disturb you.

Samson: I don't mind.
Kris: You meditate a lot, right, Sir Samson?
Samson: Yes. There's a war going on right now. In other words, what's expected from me is action.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Fighting, you mean?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Fighting... you mean?

Samson: Therefore, I believe that what I must do in battle, I should do silently.
Kris: I see.
Samson: However, in the last few days, I've hit a thick wall.
Kris: You've... hit a wall?
Samson: That's right.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: If you think it's a wall, then it must be a really big wall to me. But, if I'm not being a hindrance, would you discuss this wall with me? I want to help.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: If you think it's a wall, then it must be a really big wall to me. But, if I'm not being a hindrance, I wonder if you could discuss this wall with me? Please, let me help you surpass it.

Samson: Hm, I see. I'm grateful. Then, shall we hang out here another day? I need to take care of some things.
Kris: Sure, I don't mind.
Samson: You have my thanks. Then, we'll meet again, Sir/Dame Kris.

Second conversation

Kris: Sir Samson.
Samson: Hm, Sir/Dame Kris. I'm sorry to bother you.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I don't mind. But more to the point, what exactly is this wall you talked about, Sir Samson?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: No, I don't mind. But more to the point... what exactly is this wall you talked about, Sir Samson?

Samson: Hm. First, I want you to take a look at this.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Huh, this is... what, exactly?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Eh? This... is?

Samson: A book listing "cute things" from the entire continent.
Kris: Knitting, accessories, I see. There are even dolls... Sir Samson. I didn't know you had such a hobby.
(If Kris is male)
Samson: And I don't. It's not mine.
Kris: Then, whose hobby is it?
(If Kris is female)
Samson: No, I don't. It's not mine.
Kris: Oh gosh... Then, whose hobby could it be?

Samson: That... I can't say. Sorry.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I see. Got it.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: ...I see.

Samson: I want to choose the cutest thing among these. But, I don't know how.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: ...Oh, I see. So it's a present.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: ...Oh! I see. It's a present, isn't it?

Samson: ...I can't say.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I see. I understand. But, we're in trouble. I'm sorry, but I don't have a clue about this either.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Tee hee, I understand now. But... we're in trouble. I'm sorry, but I've no interest in fashion... So I wouldn't really know to choose.

Samson: Damn, I see.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: But, from your expression, I strongly felt this is a wall... that must be surpassed.
Samson: ...Sir Kris.
Kris: Sir Samson. Could you lend me that book for a bit?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: But... I want to help you somehow, Sir Samson. I really do.
Samson: ...Dame Kris.
Kris: Sir Samson. Would you mind lending me that book for a bit?

Samson: No, I don't mind. Do you have a plan?
Kris: Yes. Let's meet here again, later!

Third conversation

Kris: Sir Samson!
Samson: Oh, Sir/Dame Kris. Did you figure something out?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Yes, take a look at this.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Yes, please take a look at this.

Samson: This is the book we looked at together, the one listing "cute things"...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Take a good look at the product articles.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Please turn your attention to the product articles.

Samson: Oh! Levels of recommendation... are written. But how?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I asked Miss Aimee to write them in, the last time I stopped by the vendor.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: A while ago, I happened by the vendor and I asked Miss Aimee to write them in.

Samson: I see. To find cakes, go to a cake shop.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Exactly.
Samson: I think this will come in handy. Sir Kris, you have my thanks.
Kris: No, I wanted to know too. Let's reach the end of this road together.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: That's right!
Samson: I think this will come in handy. Dame Kris, you have my thanks.
Kris: No, it was nothing. I wanted to know too... Well, let's choose something good.

Samson: Yes. Now, let me have a read.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Okay.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Okay. I feel so excited for some reason...

Samson: Guh...
Kris: Uh, this is...
Samson: Expensive, isn't it?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: And there are recommendations dotted all over the place.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Plus there are recommendations dotted all over the place.

Samson: Oh yeah, she is a merchant after all...
Kris: Yeah. This is really one road we can't walk through, in the end...
Samson: Yes, I'd have to agree with you. Hm, Sir/Dame Kris. There's a piece of paper inside.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: You're right. There's something written on it. I'll read. "Ending this war would be the best present for her. "If you want to buy her something, you can do that later. I'll give you two a special discount. "Do your best! Aimee, the vendor"
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Oh, you're right. There's something written on it... Okay, I'll read. "Ending this war would be the best present for her. "If you want to buy her something, you can do that later. I'll give you two a special discount. "Do your best! Aimee, the vendor"

Samson: ...Good grief.
Kris: Heh. It seems she's seen through everything.

Frost and Kris

First conversation

Frost: "I am in good health." ...No, no, no.
Kris: Sir Frost.
Frost: "Your grandfather is doing well." ...Not quite.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Sir Frost, watch out! There's a wall ahead!
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Sir, Sir Frost, watch out! There's a wall ahead!

Frost: Yowie! ...That was close. You have my thanks, Sir/Dame Kris.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: It was nothing. But, you were really focused... May I ask what you were doing?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: No, no... I'm just glad you're alright. However, you were really focused... May I ask what you were doing?

Frost: Oh, yes... Take a look.
Kris: Is this a letter?
Frost: Indeed. I was writing a letter to my family.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I see.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Oh gosh!

Frost: It's nice to have a family. Unfortunately, I can't really think of anything good to write. Oh right, Sir/Dame Kris. Might you have any good ideas?
Kris: ...I've never had the fortune of receiving letters from my family.
Frost: Oh my gosh...!
Kris: However, if I were to receive a letter from my grandfather now...
Frost: Hm?
Kris: I think he'd want me to write about the things that are happening now. Like how I'm thinking about a good start, but am stuck with what to write. I think that would be good enough.
Frost: Ooh! That might be good enough, indeed. Then, without further ado... "I am obtaining assistance from a young lad/lass called Kris." ...There.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Huh? You're starting with that!?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Huh? You're starting from what I said!?

Second conversation

Frost: ...Alright, I've sent it.
Kris: I bet you can't wait for the answer.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: No, no. I'm having a lot of fun myself. Your family will probably be very happy to know you think of them so dearly.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: No, no. I'm always having fun myself. Your family... will probably be very happy to know you think of them so dearly.

Frost: Oh-hoh hoh, you're absolutely right. Sir/Dame Kris, thank you for always helping this old geezer out.
Frost: Hmm...? I have to wonder. Actually, I reckon I'm the happy one.
Kris: You think?
Frost: ...I've never had the talent for sword or magic.
Kris: Sir Frost...?
Frost: But, in response to my family's support... By the time I noticed, I had obtained the power I have now.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Holy.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Gosh, how wonderful...

Frost: I can wield this power for my family; I have the strength to wield it. There's nothing more joyous than that. Sir/Dame Kris. If there's anything this old geezer can do, don't hesitate to ask.
Kris: Okay.
Frost: Be it cooking or cleaning. Oh, I could wash your back, too.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Eh? I can do that myself... thanks.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Eh? Sorry, but I can do that myself...

Frost: I-I see...

Third conversation

Frost: Hm, hmmm...
Kris: Sir Frost?
Frost: Ah... Sir/Dame Kris.
Kris: Are you having trouble deciding a letter's contents, again?
Frost: Right you are lad/lass. You see... If I write about current matters again, this letter will end up being the same as the previous one.
Kris: I think that's actually fine, personally.
Frost: Hmm, what a predicament.
Kris: Then, how about this?
Frost: Oh, what's your suggestion, lad/lass?
Kris: Do the opposite. Ask your family what they've been doing, Sir Frost.
Frost: Eh?
Kris: Basically, you could just ask them how they've been... Ask them for details about what they wrote in their previous letter.
Frost: Hohoho!
Kris: Just like you obtained power so you could feel useful... Wouldn't your family feel the need to tell you things in a letter? ...Well, do you think so?
Frost: Yes! Indeed. Really, you're always saving me, Sir/Dame Kris.
Kris: No, not at all.
Frost: What should I do as thanks...? I know, take this, lad/lass.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Hm? Is this a letter?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Oh! Is this... a letter?

Frost: Yes. From my family to you, Sir/Dame Kris. I wonder if you could accept it on behalf of this old geezer?

(If Kris is male)
Kris: Yes, gladly!
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Yes, gladly- Thank you so much!

Roshea and Kris

First conversation

Kris: Sir Roshea, what is that...?
Roshea: Oh, this... It's a letter I received from the kids.
Kris: Kids? You have children, Sir Roshea?
Roshea: No, no. They aren't my children... They're from an orphanage I visit often. The previous war... made many children into orphans from Archanea to Aurelis... That's why I'm helping in an orphanage, to try and save them. This is a letter of thanks from the kids living there.
Kris: I see...
Roshea: When I'm broken from fighting... reading this letter rekindles my resolve. It makes me do my best, for the kids...
Kris: Sir Roshea... You're a kind man.
Roshea: Never. I'm just weak, that's all...

Second conversation

Kris: ...All the letters from the children overflow with gratitude towards you, Sir Roshea. You play with them... and even teach them how to write, don't you?
Roshea: Oh, yes. I adore children, you see.
Kris: And you even donate money to the orphanage... These aren't things... many people would be able to do.
Roshea: I wanted to repay a favor to Coyote... The four of us didn't have parents, just like the kids. We're only alive now because Coyote raised us. That's why I wanted to follow in Coyote's footsteps...
Kris: I find it most admirable. I'm very impressed by your dedication.
Roshea: Thanks... But, I'm just... a hypocrite... All I'm doing is killing more people during this war...
Kris: ...
Roshea: I'm weak. I'm doing all this just to try and flee from that sin... The townsfolk told me the same. That I'm just a hypocrite...
Kris: ...Sir Roshea... I don't think you're a bad hypocrite.
Roshea: Pardon?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: There might be people who call your actions hypocrisy... However, in truth, you're the person who's saving those kids' lives. If you can save somebody through hypocrisy, that doesn't automatically make you a bad person, just because you're a hypocrite.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: There are probably people who call your actions hypocrisy... However, in truth, you're the person who's saving those kids' lives. Am I not right? If you can save somebody through hypocrisy, that doesn't automatically make you a bad person, just because you're a hypocrite.

Roshea: Kris...
Kris: In fact, I'd say the hypocrite is a better person than those who accuse him- The ones who do nothing to help. That's what I think.
Roshea: T-thanks. This is the first time somebody has put it that way...

Third conversation

Kris: Sir Roshea, the end of this battle is nigh. Once it's over, there will be no more war orphans.
Roshea: Yes, that's right. The lives lost in this war won't come back... So, at least this glimmer of hope remains...
Kris: Sir Roshea... Fighting Emperor Hardin was probably... harshest to you, of all people. Since you are kinder than most, you're hurt more than most, too...
Roshea: No, I'm just weak.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Indeed, kindness and weakness are often intertwined... However, I like your kindness, Sir Roshea. Please don't... abandon it.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: If kindness is weakness... Then there's no reason to become strong. However, I like your kindness, Sir Roshea. Please don't... abandon it.

Roshea: Thank you... Kris.

Vyland and Kris

First conversation

Kris: Sir Vyland. It is an honor to be able to fight alongside the prestigious Wolfguard. I'm pleased to make your acquaintance.
Vyland: Yes, likewise. Well, my original plan was to die for Coyote, but... Roshea convinced me otherwise.
Kris: Sir Roshea... He was the one who persuaded you in the previous battle, wasn't he?
(If Kris is male)
Vyland: Yes, we four Wolfguard members are like siblings. Roshea has a good eye for people. ...But, he's a bit too kind, too. He's much stronger than me in battle, but he only makes a move when he absolutely must. That's why I fight in the front... But it rarely goes well.
Kris: Why? What happens?
(If Kris is female)
Vyland: Yes, we four Wolfguard members are like siblings. Roshea has a good eye for people. ...But, he's a bit too kind, too. He's much stronger than me in battle, but he only makes a move when he absolutely must.
Kris: I see...
Vyland: That's why I fight in the front... But it rarely goes well.
Kris: Why? How so?

Vyland: First... I take one opponent down, right?
Kris: Yeah.
Vyland: Then, I find myself surrounded by the remaining enemies.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Wait, what?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Eh?

Vyland: Then, when it's almost lights out for me... I'm rescued by Roshea... Well, that about sums up my battles.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: That sounds dangerous.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Ah, that sounds dangerous...

Vyland: Yeah. I, too, need to acquire enough strength, so I can fight properly by myself...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Then, why not take some special training?
Vyland: Good idea, Sir Kris. Can I ask you for a sparring match?
Kris: Yeah, I don't mind.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Oh, in that case... Would you like to have some special training with me?
Vyland: Good idea, Dame Kris. Can I ask you for a sparring match?
Kris: Yes. I'd be happy to.

Vyland: Oh, excellent. Then... Here I come!

Second conversation

(If Kris is male)
Vyland: Sir Kris... You left an opening!
Kris: Guh! You're good, Sir Vyland. However... Your footwork is faulty!!
(If Kris is female)
Vyland: Dame Kris... You left an opening!
Kris: Guh! You're good, Sir Vyland. But... Your footwork is faulty!!

Vyland: Uwah!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I win, I suppose.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I win, I guess.

Vyland: Guh, I've been beaten.
Kris: Your offence is satisfactory. However, you leave an opening after attacking.
Vyland: I see... that's why I lost.
Kris: Although, if...
Vyland: Hm? What is it? Please tell me.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Were there somebody else attacking with you, at the same time, there might not be an issue at all.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I was just thinking... were there somebody else attacking at the same time, there would be no issue at all.

Vyland: That's right. Hit-and-run is the original style of Aurelis.
Kris: Ah, I see. So that's where the strength of the Wolfguard lies.
Vyland: Bah, you saw through our tactics so easily. I'm amazed.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: No, if I were to take two such attacks at once... I don't know how I'd survive. But, more importantly... I realized something, now.
Vyland: What is it?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: No, if I were to take two such attacks at once... I don't know how I'd survive. But, more importantly... I understand now.
Vyland: What?

Kris: Sir Vyland, you should be able to perform better in battle by charging with your comrades, instead of taking the vanguard.
Vyland: So, you mean...
Kris: Yeah. I already know what's the topic of our next training.

Third conversation

Kris: Pant, pant...! S-sir Vyland.
Vyland: Hm? What is it, Sir/Dame Kris?
Kris: S-sorry, but... I wonder if we could lower the pace a bit?
Vyland: Oh yes, sorry. Let's do just that.
Kris: I said you'd fare better, by charging together with others, but... aren't you moving a bit too fast?
Vyland: Is that so? We usually move at twice this speed in the Wolfguard.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Twice!? That shouldn't be humanly possible... Anyway, it seems I've no hope of entering the Wolfguard.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: T-twice!? That shouldn't be humanly possible... It's vexing, but it seems I've no hope of being a Wolfguard.

Vyland: Is that right...? 'Tis a pity.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Sir Roshea can keep up with your pace, can't he?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: But... Sir Roshea can keep up with your pace, can't he?

Vyland: Yeah. Roshea, Wolf, Sedgar... We've always been together. And Coyote too...
Kris: ... ...About Emperor Hardin...
Vyland: It's alright, Sir/Dame Kris. Our cause isn't mistaken. Is that not true? I believe in your cause. That's why I'm here with you, Sir/Dame Kris.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Sir Vyland... Yes, believe it. Prince Marth is a man you can trust.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Sir Vyland... Yes, you're not mistaken. Prince Marth is a man you can trust.

Sedgar and Kris

First conversation

Sedgar: Swords... Good. Bows... Good.
Kris: Sir Sedgar. What are you... Wow. What are you doing? Why are you arranging weapons like this?
Sedgar: Sir/Dame Kris, was it?
Kris: Spear and horse tack, and even spellbooks...
Sedgar: I'm doing their maintenance. Sorry for taking up space.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: No, I don't mind. But, it seems you've even got weapons you have no use for, Sir Sedgar.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: No, I don't mind. But, it seems... you've even got weapons you have no use for, Sir Sedgar.

Sedgar: Yes, indeed. But, they might be needed in the next battle.
Kris: That could very well be true, but...
Sedgar: I know what you mean. I, too, would only do maintenance on bows, until not too long ago.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Is that so?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I see.

Sedgar: Well, that's how it usually is. Well, next up is... Staves... Good, I'm done. Well, Sir/Dame Kris. If you'll excuse me.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Okay.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Oh, yes. See you later...

Second conversation

Sedgar: Axes... Good. Meh, this sword is in need of repair.
Kris: Sir Sedgar.
Sedgar: Oh, Sir/Dame Kris. Sorry for taking up so much space always.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: No, it's fine. Can I take a look at this horse tack?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: No, don't worry. Say, would you allow me to take a look at this horse tack?

Sedgar: Yes, go ahead.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: This was... very meticulously done. Did you do all of this, Sir Sedgar?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: This was... very meticulously done. Did you... do all of this, Sir Sedgar?

Sedgar: That's right. Well, I wasn't the one supposed to use it at first, but...
Kris: Hm? Then, who?
Sedgar: Wolf.
Kris: Ah, the Wolfguard's leader... right?
Sedgar: He's... in one word, a genius. I got his bow and tack ready, and he fired. At first, that was how we operated. But, in the previous war, he got more and more stronger...
Kris: And came to use weapons other than bows?
Sedgar: Precisely. Depending on the strategy, he changed the weapons he used.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: That's amazing.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: That's... amazing...

Sedgar: And, to match his pace... I ended up getting used to repairing all kinds of weapons.

Third conversation

Kris: Sir Sedgar. Weapon maintenance again?
Sedgar: Oh, if it isn't Sir/Dame Kris. You came at a good time. Could you swing this lance for a moment?
Kris: Yes, got it. ...
Sedgar: How is it?
Kris: After I swing it, it feels like the tip stretches a little... I think.
Sedgar: What!? Give it to me. Hm... Oh, this. Indeed, even though it's tiny, a needless gap appears between the handle and the spearhead.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Hm, is that so? I don't really know, see.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Eh? Is that so?

Sedgar: I felt there was something wrong with it, but I couldn't figure out the cause. But you found it with a single swing. I'm impressed.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I-is that so? I'm not very knowledgeable, though. It was probably because I used to do plenty of maintenance on my grandfather's training weapons.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Oh, thank you. I'm not very knowledgeable, but... It was probably because I used to do plenty of maintenance on my grandfather's training weapons.

Sedgar: I see. So your body has memorized the ideal weapon conditions? ...Sir/Dame Kris. Could I ask you to check the maintenance of other weapons?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Sure, why not.
(If Kris is female)

Sedgar: I'm grateful. Then, without delay... Could you swing this staff and axe at the same time and tell me how they are?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Huh? No, nobody can do that.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Eh? I'm sorry, but nobody can do that...

Wolf and Kris

First conversation

Kris: Sir Wolf, please wait.
Wolf: Who are you?
Kris: I am Kris, a knight of Altea and Prince Marth's Royal Guard.
Wolf: Kris...? Never heard of you.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I'd be surprised if you had. I'm still making a name for myself right now. But Sir Jagen has told me about you... Sir Wolf, captain of the Wolfguard. The strongest and most famous of the Aurelian knights, serving directly under His Majesty, Emperor Hardin... And in the last war you, their leader, displayed an overwhelming strength, befitting of your position.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I'd be surprised if you had. I'm still making a name for myself right now. I've heard the rumors from Sir Jagen... Sir Wolf, captain of the Wolfguard. The strongest and most famous of the Aurelian knights, serving directly under His Majesty, Emperor Hardin... And in the last war you, their leader, displayed an overwhelming strength, befitting of your position.

Wolf: ... I have no intention of being surpassed in battle, and not by you puny Altean knights. Besides... don't misunderstand. The Wolfguard's strength is not mine alone. It also belongs to Sedgar, my assistant in the battlefield. As well as Vyland and Roshea... And more than anything, it belongs to Coyote... Because he was with us.
Kris: ... Emperor Hardin, huh...? Hmm, I'm not sure what to say...
Wolf: ...Forget it. We know Coyote's thoughts and intentions. I'll smite the villain who led him astray. That is all.

Second conversation

Wolf: You're... Kris, was it?
Kris: Sir Wolf?
Wolf: ...I apologize for my rudeness the other day. It seems I have made light of your strength.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Huh? Wait, you don't need to lower your head like that...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Huh? Y-you don't need to lower your head like that...

Wolf: I pay respect to the strong. I realized the moment I saw you fight. You're strong. You may even have more potential than me. And that strength... isn't something you can easily acquire. It's something obtained from sweat and pain. Just like mine... It's a strength continuously tempered from a very early age, for the sake of your liege.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Yes, I have trained since my childhood, so I could serve as a knight of Altea.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Yes... I have trained since my childhood, so I could serve as a knight of Altea.

Wolf: To think there was a knight like you in Altea... However, I don't understand. Is Prince Marth really... a liege you'd risk your life for?
Kris: Absolutely. Serving him is my joy.
Wolf: Then I must say this: He's not a liege befitting of you. Prince Marth rebelled against Archanea, seizing the land and ruling it through strength and fear... His ultimate aim to take over the world, eventually... That is what I've been told.
Kris: Th-that's utter nonsense! If you knew Prince Marth, Sir Wolf, you'd realize how ridiculous you sounded. Prince Marth isn't like that all.
Wolf: ...I see. I spoke rudely, forgive me. Were somebody to insult my liege, I would not forgive them myself...
Kris: Indeed... I understand that feeling all too well.
Wolf: The people loathe Coyote, as if he were a demon. But what they say matters not to us, because we know his true kindness. However, you're different... I want you to understand the true Coyote. Coyote is absolutely not a bad person. In reality, he's...
Kris: Sir Wolf... How about we discuss our respective lieges? I don't know Emperor Hardin. Meanwhile, you seem to have a twisted image of Prince Marth. If we discuss, I'm sure we'll be able to better understand each other.

Third conversation

Kris: Sir Wolf, it's almost over. This battle is close to its end. Soon, the world will see peaceful days again...
Wolf: Yeah, that's right. How ironic. I wished to die for my liege... And yet I continue to live, and will soon return to my motherland...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Sir Wolf... I'm not good with words... But I know you have a duty you must fulfill. So, I want you to live. When this war ends... and from then on.
Wolf: My duty, huh...? That's right... I'll live for that purpose. Coyote... For the motherland he loved so much...
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Sir Wolf... What kind of place is your motherland, Aurelis?
Wolf: Oh, right... Wide, endless grasslands... with flowers of all colors... and a cool breeze blowing...
Kris: A beautiful country, I'm sure...
Wolf: Yeah. Kris... I want to show you the Lea of Aurelis someday. I want you to see the land we loved... the land Coyote loved.
Kris: Yes. When this battle is over, please take me with you. I, too, wish to see the place you call home...

Midia and Kris

First conversation

Kris: Miss Midia.
Midia: You're that Altean knight...
Kris: Yes, my name is Kris. I thought to greet you, as a fellow comrade fighting under Prince Marth.
Midia: Likewise, nice to meet you. We need to defeat the villain who was manipulating Emperor Hardin from the shadows. For the sake of Archanea and for this world...
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Indeed.
Midia: Oh, right. You needn't worry about me just because I'm a woman. Just treat me as a fellow comrade, fighting for the same cause.
Kris: I will, don't worry. I've met many mighty female knights, myself... So I understand all too well.
Midia: Hee hee, is that so? Then, I'm counting on you, Kris.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Yes.
Midia: By the way, you're a female knight just like me. Being a knight when you're female brings all sorts of inconveniences, don't you think?
Kris: Quite indeed... It's complicated even to find a refuge to sleep during the campaigns.
Midia: I understand, I felt the same. I hope we'll get along well, Kris.

Kris: Thank you, Miss Midia.

Second conversation

Kris: I wonder... what caused Emperor Hardin to change so much?
Midia: ...I believe Bishop Boah explained the reason for Hardin's insanity clear enough. He felt great suffering, knowing that he had no place in Lady Nyna's heart... Gharnef grasped onto that chance...
Kris: However, I just don't understand... I only knew Emperor Hardin after he changed. But according to Prince Marth, he used to be an outstanding man...
Midia: Quite. Emperor Hardin was... a man of outstanding character, and an excellent statesman. I, too, approved of him becoming emperor. I believed he'd be able to make Archanea a good country.
Kris: But can somebody really change that much? He completely neglected his duties as the Emperor, just because he couldn't possess Lady Nyna's love...?
Midia: Don't you understand?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: No, I'm afraid don't. If he's the Emperor, he's needed.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: No, I'm afraid don't. Of course, I believe it must have been hard for him. However, if he's the Emperor, he's needed.

Midia: Indeed, the crimes he has committed cannot be forgiven. And if you think about it, the gap in his heart might have invited all this. But... I feel like I understand him a little.
Kris: Miss Midia...
Midia: The stronger your love is towards someone... The harder it is to bear the loss of that love... As a knight, I wholly condemn Hardin, but I can understand... the pain he felt.
Kris: ...

Third conversation

Midia: Say, Kris. Do you have someone special in your heart?
Kris: Huh? Yes, of course. Prince Marth is my liege and I'll serve him for my entire life...
Midia: Not that, I meant a lover.
Kris: A l-lover? No, I don't...
Midia: Isn't there anybody you like?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: W-well... I'm no good with that sort of thing...
Midia: I see. So, as a senior knight, let me give you a piece of advice. We're knights, but we're people too. So, isn't it good for us to love somebody?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I'm sorry... I'm no good with that sort of thing...
Midia: I see. So, as a senior knight, let me give you a piece of advice. We're knights, but we're women too. So, isn't it good for us to love somebody?

Kris: I wonder.
Midia: Do you know what I think? If you were really to fall in love with someone... I believe you'd become a far more charming individual.
Kris: I-I'll do my best.
(If Kris is male)
Midia: And I hope you'll find happiness in love. Don't become a bad man who would make a woman cry, got it?
(If Kris is female)
Midia: And I hope you'll find happiness in love. Don't be deceived by a bad man. I want you to be happy...

Kris: Understood, Miss Midia...

Ymir and Kris

Kris: Sir Ymir. We shall now advance towards the upper levels.
Ymir: Yeah, gotcha, Kris. Just ask me if you need anything. I'll do my best for everyone.
Kris: Sir Ymir, you're really kind. I've only spent a short time with you and I can already tell. Therefore, I must apologize again for my rudeness earlier...
Kris: It's fine, it's fine. I already get what you're feeling. You're really nice. Marth's sure got lots of nice people. I'm relying on you, Kris.
Kris: Yes. From now on, and until this war is over... I'm counting on you too, Sir Ymir.

Nagi and Kris

Nagi: ...
Kris: Lady Nagi, about the next battle... We're advancing to the next floor. It'll likely be an intense battle, but we don't have a minute to lose.
Nagi: ...You are... ...You are mysterious...
Kris: Huh?
Nagi: You are... being guided by a mysterious fate... I don't know who, but you're guided by someone similar to you...
Kris: Are you... fortune telling? Truly, I did feel like what you described every now and then.
Nagi: ... Your name... Tell me... your name.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Yes ma'am. I am Kris.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I am Kris.

Nagi: Kris... tell me. What can... I do for you...? I want to help you...

Michalis and Kris

Michalis: ...
Kris: Prince Michalis?
Michalis: Kris, was it? I've heard about your exploits. Damn that Prince Marth, he's got a sharp eye for talent.
Kris: ...I'll treat those words as a compliment to Prince Marth.
Michalis: Go ahead. I'm planning to leave this land once I save Maria. There's no point in him knowing.
Kris: Leave... this land?
Michalis: That's correct.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Then... what will you tell Princess Maria? Isn't she waiting for you?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: In that case... what will you tell Princess Maria? Isn't she waiting for you?

Michalis: ...I'll save her, but I won't say a word afterwards.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Wha...!
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Th-that's horrible!

Michalis: The only one who should talk to Maria now is her sister, Minerva. I don't have the right anymore.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Why do you think that?
(If Kris is female)
Kris: And why is that?

Michalis: I don't have any ties with Macedon anymore.
Kris: So you're running.
Michalis: What did you say?
Kris: I heard you were once reunited with Princess Minerva on the battlefield.
Michalis: You speak of during the War of Shadows. So, what of it?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: That time... I wonder if the princess asked if you couldn't mend your ways.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: That time... didn't the princess ask you to mend your ways?

Michalis: Bah. Why do you know that?
(If Kris is male)
Kris: No, I didn't know. But, considering her personality, I just... presumed she did.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: No, I didn't know. But, considering her personality, I just... presumed she would have.

Michalis: ...Gah!
Kris: Not because you committed a mistake, or because you ruined the kingdom... I believe the princess's true wish was for you to abandon your lance and walk a new path.
Michalis: ...Hmph. You're a man/woman who doesn't fear a king.
Kris: I'm flattered.
(If Kris is male)
Michalis: I don't like you, just as I don't like Prince Marth. However... I suppose the world needs people like you right now. Damn, these are interesting times.
(If Kris is female)
Michalis: If I had someone like you by my side, just like Prince Marth does now... No, I had one in the past. There was once a fearless woman standing by my side, too.

Kris: ...Prince Michalis.
(If Kris is male)
Michalis: I'll remember you, Kris... No, Sir Kris.
(If Kris is female)
Michalis: Kris. No, Dame Kris. Thank you.
