Brave Celica Quotes:

Castle 1: Warrior priestesses of old once wore outfits just like this. Appropriate garb when locked in a battle for the fate of the world, don't you think?

Castle 2: I hope that the world can one day find peace and that those precious to me remain safe... That's my prayer to Mila.

Castle 3: Alm entrusted me with this sword. Ever since childhood, he's been extremely well as brave.

Castle 4: I sensed someone calling out to me. No, not just one person...but many. What could that mean?

Castle 5: Prayer and reflection are important, but as a warrior priestess I must keep up my sword training as well. I wonder if someone here would be willing to play the role of opponent...

Friend Greeting: I've come to check up on you in place of [Friend]. Are you getting along as usual?

Level (High): Such strength would be impossible without everyone's support.

Level (Medium): There's nothing wrong with steady progress. Don't you agree?

Level (Low): Oh, how unfortunate... I must have lost my usual stride.

Learn Skill: Thank you so much. Your trust in me shall be rewarded.

Summoned: I am Celica, a warrior priestess in service to the goddess Mila. I heard a voice calling out to me... Was it you?

5-Star Level 40: It may be odd for a warrior priestess to admit this, but...I do not enjoy fighting. If it were up to me, I would never hurt another living soul. However, if something or someone important to me needs defending, I have no choice but to fight. I must sound like such a hypocrite... Do you think poorly of me? You say I'm a truly kind person? N-no, I disagree... Not long ago, I angered someone very close to me. His only wrongdoing was casting his own safety aside so he could fight for his full convictions without hesitation. In fact, you remind me of him... Just a little. Perhaps that's why I'm willing to fight to protect you. If I stay by your side...then I'm sure my reasons for fighting will become clear.

Attack 1: Ha!

Attack 2: With this blow...!

Damage 1: Ugh!

Damage 2: No...!

Special 1: Place your trust in me!

Special 2: Your feelings give me strength!

Special 3: By Mila's grace!

Special 4: Guide my hand!

Death: No... Alm...

Status Page 1: Uhmm...

Status Page 2: Warrior priestesses of old wore outfits just like this. Do you think it suits me?

Status Page 3: Oh! You startled me. You like playing tricks, huh? The truth is...I do, too.

Status Page 4: In order to protect Mila, a warrior priestess must be adept with both magic and the sword.

Status Page 5: This sword is a curious one. It can be wielded by royalty alone.

Status Page 6: No matter the distance between us, it feels like Alm is right by my side.

Status Page 7: Oh, Alm... No matter where I am, I always find myself thinking of you. Are you thinking of me?

Status Page 8: You are this world's hope. By protecting you, I'll help keep the darkness at bay.

Moving 1: We're all right.

Moving 2: Hmm...

Moving 3: I'll clear a path.

Brave Veronica Quotes:

Castle 1: Oh, Brother, where have you gone? Tell me, is my brother here in this world?

Castle 2: My brother gave me this book. I've read it so many times I know it by heart. But I read it again and again...

Castle 3: If somebody gets in your way, well... I'll pop their head right off... Just like I used to do with my dolls.

Castle 4: From the back of a horse, you can see far into the distance... Do you want to ride with me?

Castle 5: Is the Veronica of this world anything like me? I must meet her.

Friend Greeting: Nobody is as loyal to me as [Friend] is. You should serve Embla, too.

Level (High): Seeing me get stronger... Does it make you happy?

Level (Medium): I'm doing things the way that my brother taught me.

Level (Low): Don't look at me like that. It's... unsettling.

Learn Skill: Wise. Granting power to me means granting power to yourself.

Summoned: I am Veronica. I take it that it was your voice I heard calling me here... That is fine. I will help you.

5-Star Level 40: Who are you, [Summoner]? You are the legendary summoner. But you're not who I thought you would all. You're kind... I expected someone much more imposing. Back in my world, I spent so much time thinking about how I'd kill you... But now... I have an idea. After we find my brother, I want you to show me where you come from. I want to understand who you really are.

Attack 1: それ

Attack 2: どいて…

Damage 1: きゃああっ!

Damage 2: ひどい…

Special 1: You will be mine.

Special 2: So strong!

Special 3: Just like my brother...

Special 4: On your way.

Death: Brother...

Status Page 1: ふぅん…

Status Page 2: I'm with you.

Status Page 3: There, there...

Status Page 4: I am Veronica. However, I am different than the Veronica you know.

Status Page 5: Don't treat me like a child. What do you want?

Status Page 6: My brother and Xander taught me how to ride a horse.

Status Page 7: I wonder... Has my brother come to hate the very sight of me?

Status Page 8: When I'm with you... I don't get so lonely.

Moving 1: Hmmm...

Moving 2: Did you call for me?

Moving 3: I will fight.

Brave Hector Quotes:

Castle 1: Uther... I wish I could have been at your side to aid you, Brother...

Castle 2: This here is the freezing lance Maltet. Just like Armads, it's counted among the legendary weapons of Elibe. That said, wielding it is quite different from wielding an axe...

Castle 3: Don't get too close. One wrong step and this heavy armor could crush you flat. Hahaha! I'm only joking, friend! Do be careful around me, though...

Castle 4: Daily training is essential if you want to move around in heavy armor like this. Care to join me? Once you get used to being sore all the time, it's actually quite fun!

Castle 5: Hey, what's with that strange look you're giving me? Oh, this? It's just a book. What?! Aw, come on. I read! A lord has to have some refinement!

Friend Greeting: I'm Hector, Marquess of Ostia. And I've brought you a message from [Friend].

Level (High): Heh, I couldn't lose right now if I tried!

Level (Medium): I think I'm finally getting the hang of this lance.

Level (Low): Ugh... This armor sure is heavy...

Learn Skill: Oho! Thanks, friend! I'll pay you back like I always do—on the battlefield!

Summoned: I'm Hector, Marquess of Ostia. I was wondering why I was called here, but... Well, if you have some foes that need routing, I have just the lance for the job.

5-Star Level 40: Hey, let me ask you a question... What qualities do you suppose are most important for a ruler to have? I've been thinking about this since I succeeded the throne. And aside from bravery, I'm at a total loss... The respect of the people, you say? Hm... Without the backing of the people, one isn't qualified to rule... Yes, I think that makes good sense. However, respect is not something you can see with your eyes. Huh? Seeing isn't always believing? There you go again, doling out wisdom faster than I can keep up! Well, if that's the expectation set for me as a ruler, then I'll just have to meet it. For those who have put their faith in me...and for my brother.

Attack 1: せいっ!

Attack 2: いくぜっ!

Damage 1: うああっ!

Damage 2: まだまだ…!

Special 1: Prepare to die!

Special 2: Clear a path!

Special 3: Your luck's run out!

Special 4: Pierce the sky, Maltet!

Death: Uther... I...

Status Page 1: うーむ

Status Page 2: This here is heavy armor from House Ostia. And let me tell you, they don't call it "heavy" for nothing!

Status Page 3: Who was that? This bulky armor makes it so hard to move. Normally I'm lighter on my feet, I swear!

Status Page 4: Get this. "For generations, Corrupt neither the body nor the mind has been the dominant ideology of Ostia."

Status Page 5: My brother Uther was the Marquess of Ostia. He was a great man... Someone you could truly respect.

Status Page 6: My dream was to one day grow wiser so I could sit at my brother's side and aid him.

Status Page 7: I never asked it of him, but... Even on the verge of death, he watched over me.

Status Page 8: You're not dying while I'm around. Not a chance.

Moving 1: Right.

Moving 2: I'm up next!

Moving 3: One step at a time.

Brave Ephraim Quotes:

Castle 1: What surprises me is this: how little I am surprised by being in a world I know nothing about. All those voices, the ones that called out for me... Perhaps that's why.

Castle 2: My father was praised by many as a peerless Warrior King. And I...I once made a joke about how he'd outlive us all.

Castle 3: Well now, [Summoner]... Are you sure you're ready? To lead on the battlefield, you need both strength and stamina.

Castle 4: I've been spending time gazing at the stars in the sky... I don't know any of the constellations of this world, but it doesn't make their light any less beautiful.

Castle 5: I hope Eirika is all right... She has always been by my side. Now that we're apart, I find myself worrying about how she fares.

Friend Greeting: I'm Ephraim. [Friend] told me you're good in a fight. Want to spar? We can go one-on-one.

Level (High): Sword or lance, it doesn't matter. In a fair fight, I'll beat anyone with this axe.

Level (Medium): You know, axes aren't half-bad, as weapons go. I feel like I have more options now.

Level (Low): Facing adversity brings meaning to your life.

Learn Skill: I feel completely vitalized and ready to go. It must be thanks to this.

Summoned: I am Prince Ephraim of Renais. My father, Fado, met an untimely death... In his place, I vow to protect the people. Every last one.

5-Star Level 40: After my father's life was stolen... After our homeland was stolen... After everything I knew fell away... That's when I vowed that I would protect my kingdom in my father's stead. When my father was alive...that thought would never have crossed my mind. I know that something I once said disappointed him greatly. You see, I said that Eirika should succeed the throne while I lived the life of a mercenary, lance in hand. What would my father say if he could see me now? Would he be satisfied with the man I've become? I'm sure he'd upbraid me. "You have a long way to go," he'd say. He would be right. I want to do what I can to become a good king—to get ever closer to the ideals he upheld. For no other reason than to not disappoint him once more.

Attack 1: せいっ!

Attack 2: 行くぞ!

Damage 1: うああっ!

Damage 2: 甲冑が…!

Special 1: We must press forward!

Special 2: Are you prepared?

Special 3: No time to waste.

Special 4: By Garm's might.

Death: Father...

Status Page 1: ふっ

Status Page 2: My outfit? Why, it's a suit of armor from Renais. It's... Ugh... Really heavy...

Status Page 3: My father was Fado, king of Renais. He was known as a peerless Warrior King.

Status Page 4: I once said that Eirika should succeed the throne... And that I'd be perfectly content taking my lance and traveling the land as a mercenary.

Status Page 5: This axe is known as Garm. It's a weapon from Lyon's homeland...

Status Page 6: My father was so strong. I never imagined he could be defeated...

Status Page 7: My father was killed by my best friend Lyon.

Status Page 8: I'll protect you. I don't want to lose anyone else.

Moving 1: Right...

Moving 2: Where to begin?

Moving 3: The only way is forward.
