Pelleas: I have to head back to the castle. I have to know if there is a way to break free of the blood pact.
Micaiah: Please be careful.
Pelleas: ...Please, Micaiah. Stop being so kind to me. It's too difficult for me.
Micaiah: I can feel how you've suffered. You've had to endure it all alone for so long. It's ghastly.
Pelleas: It was my fault... I brought this curse upon Daein!
Micaiah: No! You didn't know! I will protect Daein. I'll protect our country from harm, no matter what happens. You have my word.
Pelleas: Micaiah... Very well. I won't give up. We'll fight destiny together.
Pelleas: I want you to take this. I found another one in the treasure room of the castle. Stand fast, Micaiah. I will find a way to save Daein.
Sothe: Hello, General.
Tauroneo: I thought you were going to leave the army, taking Lady Micaiah with you.
Sothe: I was. But now we can't. Both Micaiah and I are from Daein. We can't abandon our own country.
Tauroneo: Hmm. I wonder if it's the same if you leave Daein...
Sothe: I don't understand.
Tauroneo: If you abandoned Daein and fought on the side of a different country, I wonder if you'd still be cursed?
Sothe: Who knows? I'm not a sage. In any case, it doesn't matter. Micaiah would never leave Daein behind.
Tauroneo: I see. Sothe, here. Take these.
Sothe: Why are you giving me these?
Tauroneo: I kept them as a parting gift for you. Since you're staying, I'd like you to take them now.
Sothe: These are all the funds we have for the near future. The problem now is stopping the apostle's army from advancing.
Micaiah: Conventional tactics won't slow them down. They'll easily break through our lines. ...What should we do?
Sothe: Are you all right? I'll leave the gold here. You're still not completely recovered yet. You have to rest, Micaiah.
Micaiah: I'll try.
Sothe: Keep safe.
(Got 10000 gold.)
Sothe: Nolan. Sorry to keep you waiting.
Nolan: Hmm? Hey, Sothe. Don't worry. I was reading while I waited.
Sothe: I didn't realize you were such a dedicated reader, Nolan.
Nolan: It's human nature to crave knowledge. I thought you would know that as well as anyone. How is Micaiah, by the way? Is she doing well?
Sothe: Yeah, I believe so. She's alert, and she seems generally stronger.
Nolan: I see. Well, that's good, right?
Sothe: Sorry to make you worry.
Nolan: Don't mention it.
Sothe: And...I...brought this for you.
Nolan: Hey, now! This is a good axe. Must've cost you a fair bit. Thanks.
Sothe: Nolan, I...
Nolan: Don't force it. You'll only hurt yourself.
Nolan: You look like you're carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders. You're wondering if you should tell me, right?
Nolan: The best thing to do is think it over. Give it some time to sit. Later, if you decide you want to tell me, you know exactly where to find me.
Sothe: I will. Thanks, Nolan.
???: There she is! Hey, lady!
Micaiah: Who? Oh, Nico!
Nico: This is great. I was hoping I'd find you.
Lady: Nico, mind you manners. The Silver-Haired Maiden is the savior of Daein. She's not just some "lady."
Micaiah: Oh, it's all right. I'm still the same simple girl from Daein you met before. Nothing's changed. So, are things well with you?
Lady: Well, the fighting's got everyone worried, coming so soon after the last war and all... But we're doing all we can for Daein! It doesn't matter who or what we're up against. Believe me when I tell you we'll never give up.
Nico: That's right! We won't give up. Ever! I know we're gonna win, too. 'Cause we've got you on our side. That's what everybody says. The Dawn Brigade will save us.
Micaiah: Is that what they say? I see... Listen to me, Nico. You can believe in us. I promise we'll keep you safe.
Nico: I knew it!
Lady: Come along, Nico. We should be going. The maiden's got better things to do than stand here chatting with us all day.
Nico: Bye, lady! See you later!
Micaiah: Yes...good-bye, Nico.
Micaiah: I...I want to save them all. The world is a better place with people like them in it.
Sothe: I know how you feel, Micaiah. That's why we started all this. We've always been fighting for them. But this war we're in... It's not just. We're fighting on the wrong side.
Micaiah: I know. I don't want to see anyone die. It's ironic...I'm killing with no malice, because I don't want anyone to be killed. I... What am I supposed to do? Am I supposed to stand back and let all of Daein perish? Is that the "just" thing to do?
Micaiah: If that's what it takes to be just, then I want nothing to do with justice. I'd rather be hated and feared like Mad King Ashnard. I'd rather let the dark god take my soul. I'm going to save my people, Sothe. If the rest of the world paints me as a beast to be reviled and hated, so be it.
