  1.  
  2. MID_ABEL_STRONGEST: Prince Marth and my beloved Est
  3. are both so important to me.
  4.  
  5. My loyalty toward my liege,
  6. my affection toward my beloved...
  7. Both feelings are clear and strong.
  8.  
  9. But are my feelings toward you
  10. loyalty because you summoned me?
  11. Or genuine, growing friendship?
  12.  
  13. I cannot say. The only thing that is
  14. clear...is that now I have someone
  15. else who is important to me.
  16.  
  17. I hope you will continue to count
  18. on me as you always have.
  19.  
  20. MID_ALFONS_STRONGEST: I have to confess that I never
  21. intended to become friends with
  22. you, Summoner.
  23.  
  24. But you're always there when I need
  25. you, to the extent that when you're
  26. not near, I feel...not quite myself.
  27.  
  28. It's a delicate position to be in.
  29. The more you have to lose, the
  30. worse it hurts when you do.
  31.  
  32. Others may open themselves to
  33. such hurt, but as a prince,
  34. I must remain strong.
  35.  
  36. It seemed reasonable to keep
  37. everyone at a distance. But you've
  38. shown me the folly of that.
  39.  
  40. I would have never discovered
  41. our fine friendship, had I not
  42. welcomed you in.
  43.  
  44. And then what would I be?
  45. Less than I am. Now, I can only
  46. hope you feel the same.
  47.  
  48. In any case, I swear to keep you
  49. safe. You're my trusted partner,
  50. XXX.
  51.  
  52. MID_ANNA_STRONGEST: I have an assessment to make.
  53. You've become more dependable
  54. than I ever imagined.
  55.  
  56. Frankly, I wasn't certain about you
  57. from the start. You were new to
  58. us. We were new to you.
  59.  
  60. But look at you now—a great
  61. tactician, giving us directions that
  62. are often excellent!
  63.  
  64. Remember when you first showed up
  65. and I said you didn't look like the
  66. Great Hero from our legend?
  67.  
  68. I'm sorry about all of that. As the
  69. commander here, I should know to
  70. never judge a book by its cover.
  71.  
  72. The person who was once my
  73. superior drilled that into my head.
  74. So, I should have known better.
  75.  
  76. You are the Great Hero, and you
  77. have lived up to the legend!
  78.  
  79. Still, you're also part of my Order of
  80. Heroes, so don't expect any
  81. preferential treatment.
  82.  
  83. But until the day comes when we
  84. save this kingdom once and for all,
  85. you and I are in this...together.
  86.  
  87. MID_AQUA_STRONGEST: You are the ocean's gray waves—♪
  88. So you've come to see me again,
  89. XXX...
  90.  
  91. You visit so often, I find myself
  92. looking for you whenever I am
  93. singing. You are a lovely audience.
  94.  
  95. My song is powerful, but that power
  96. is both great and terrible.
  97.  
  98. It can be used to rally and refresh
  99. the spirit...or enslave it.
  100.  
  101. But it seems the song's power is
  102. much less in this world, as is the
  103. danger to the singer.
  104.  
  105. So I can stay by your side to the
  106. end. And one day I will tell you of
  107. the kingdom of silence I was born in.
  108.  
  109. MID_ASAMA_STRONGEST: Ah, it is you! I should have known
  110. from the ever-busy pitter-pat of
  111. your footsteps.
  112.  
  113. You must have far too much
  114. free time on your hands if you're
  115. always spending it with me.
  116.  
  117. Why, who am I to deserve it?
  118. I'm just a holy man, not worth
  119. even the time of day.
  120.  
  121. Now, speaking of free time,
  122. do you plan to ever free me of
  123. my time here with you?
  124.  
  125. I mean, of course, final release.
  126. The good-bye. The farewell.
  127. The ta-ta and toodle-oo!
  128.  
  129. I shouldn't let myself be
  130. troubled by the idea that we'd
  131. be separated.
  132.  
  133. But I've grown fond of you.
  134. I'd like to give you more
  135. of my time, not less.
  136.  
  137. So please, don't give me any of
  138. that sort of free time—not for
  139. years and years. All right?
  140.  
  141. MID_BARTR_STRONGEST: So, I've gotten the sense that you
  142. think I should be paying more
  143. attention in battle.
  144.  
  145. What, not just go in swinging?
  146. That's what you should be
  147. doing—swinging ALL the time!
  148.  
  149. Bwaaah! Yaahhh! All you need
  150. is lefty and righty. We all got 'em,
  151. so why not USE 'em?
  152.  
  153. No use complicating battle with
  154. all that fancy stuff. At least,
  155. not for me.
  156.  
  157. Now, are we all good here?
  158. Ha! Of course we are,
  159. friend!
  160.  
  161. MID_BARTS_STRONGEST: I joined the Altean army after a
  162. stint as a mercenary... Was a pirate
  163. for a bit after that.
  164.  
  165. Thought I'd retire to the peaceful
  166. life as a woodcutter, but here's
  167. another war needs my attention.
  168.  
  169. Heh. That's fate for you, I guess.
  170.  
  171. Not all bad, though—I got to meet
  172. you. Here's to shared fate, eh?
  173.  
  174. But don't get too comfortable—
  175. you never know when we might go
  176. our separate ways!
  177.  
  178. MID_BERKA_STRONGEST: XXX...
  179. I am glad to see you are still alive.
  180.  
  181. Why am I glad? ...I don't know.
  182.  
  183. I am not obligated to you. You
  184. are not my liege—we have no
  185. contractual arrangement.
  186.  
  187. However, I...worry about your
  188. well-being. Presumably because
  189. of your irreplaceable abilities.
  190.  
  191. Assassins like myself do not get
  192. emotionally attached, so I'm sure
  193. it's your abilities that concern me.
  194.  
  195.  
  196. MID_CAMILLA_STRONGEST: Why, if it isn't the one in this whole
  197. group who makes me shiver in delight.
  198. You, XXX!
  199.  
  200. I mean, that adorable face. What
  201. sort of meanie would think of hurting
  202. one hair on your sweet head!
  203.  
  204. And that weapon of yours! It leaves
  205. you totally defenseless. That makes me
  206. want to just squeeze you to death!
  207.  
  208. You can count on your favorite,
  209. Camilla, to take care of all of
  210. your enemies.
  211.  
  212. Now, whether I feel that way
  213. because you're the summoner and
  214. I'm a Hero...then so be it.
  215.  
  216. I'm in favor of anything that brings us
  217. together, even if for a short time.
  218. I adore you completely!
  219.  
  220. MID_CAMUS_STRONGEST: I wonder when it was that I first
  221. began actively shutting others out.
  222.  
  223. Obviously my experiences played a
  224. part, but since fighting at your side,
  225. I feel my thinking has changed.
  226.  
  227. At first my isolation protected me
  228. from the pain of losing someone I
  229. cared about...or so I thought.
  230.  
  231. But to allow that fear to prevent
  232. genuine connection with others is
  233. to rob yourself of their strength.
  234.  
  235. You taught me that, and you will
  236. always have my gratitude.
  237.  
  238. MID_CECILIA_STRONGEST: When I first met you, my intention
  239. was to teach you, much as I did
  240. my pupils Roy and Lilina.
  241.  
  242. But then I saw how quickly you grew
  243. in your role here, to the extent that
  244. you surpassed even me.
  245.  
  246. It's the bittersweet moment that
  247. every teacher goes through, to see
  248. those around her learn to soar.
  249.  
  250. That is the moment when she
  251. feels left behind...
  252.  
  253. What? You still need me? It's a
  254. relief to hear you say that. Perhaps
  255. I have more still to teach.
  256.  
  257. Well, then it's settled. I will be
  258. staying here after all!
  259.  
  260. MID_CHROM_STRONGEST: It seems like a lot of time has
  261. passed since you and I first met.
  262. At first I was bewildered, but...
  263.  
  264. your guidance has made me
  265. stronger. May we ever remain
  266. side by side.
  267.  
  268. You know, when I first met you,
  269. you reminded me a lot of Robin.
  270.  
  271. Not just your manner, but the way
  272. you plan, help everyone, and work
  273. to keep all of your allies alive.
  274.  
  275. There is no one I'd rather have
  276. guiding my steps. This bond we've
  277. built will last forever.
  278.  
  279.  
  280. MID_CLARINE_STRONGEST: My word! Is it just me, or is nearly
  281. every single person here sorely
  282. lacking in etiquette?
  283.  
  284. I don't mean you, of course.
  285. Never you—for I have the sort of
  286. manners never to say so!
  287.  
  288. But I must risk offense and tell
  289. you the truth. People look to
  290. you to set a higher standard.
  291.  
  292. What? They do! All are quite aware
  293. that if we don't use our napkins
  294. properly, it will be anarchy!
  295.  
  296. So, because I am grateful for
  297. everything that you do, I will take
  298. you on as a special project.
  299.  
  300. You'll have manners coming out
  301. your ears by the time I'm finished
  302. with you. Won't this be fun?
  303.  
  304. MID_DENIS_STRONGEST: Well, well! There you are,
  305. XXX!
  306.  
  307. I wanted ta give you these fresh
  308. veggies from my garden!
  309.  
  310. Dunno if you've seen the garden—
  311. I planted it in the courtyard... Sorry
  312. if that was wrong o' me...
  313.  
  314. Aw, shucks! Thanks for not bein'
  315. mad. I'll keep on helping the Order
  316. any way I can.
  317.  
  318. You're always so nice about stuff—
  319. that's why I like you so much.
  320. Just feels natural, you know?
  321.  
  322. I'll keep raisin' great vegetables
  323. and getting stronger and stronger...
  324. Just see the fighter I'll be for you!
  325.  
  326. MID_DOHGA_STRONGEST: I've always concentrated more on
  327. protecting my allies than defeating
  328. our enemies.
  329.  
  330. That's why I appreciate what you
  331. do on the battlefield.
  332.  
  333. I see that you care about everyone
  334. and want to keep them safe.
  335.  
  336. I think together we can protect
  337. a lot of people. Count on me to
  338. help.
  339.  
  340. MID_ELFI_STRONGEST: *munch munch* Tasty... Oh, hey,
  341. XXX!
  342. Is it snack time for you, too?
  343.  
  344. You brought me a sandwich?
  345. Thanks! Nice of you to hand-
  346. deliver it and everything!
  347.  
  348. I've been eating even more since
  349. I got here. Got to be ready to
  350. protect Lady Elise and...
  351.  
  352. you know...protect you as well.
  353.  
  354. I need to eat a lot and train even
  355. more so I can be the shield that
  356. keeps you safe.
  357.  
  358. Thanks again for the sandwich.
  359. *munch munch* That was great—
  360. packed with kindness.
  361.  
  362. MID_ELISE_STRONGEST: Yay! I always love it when
  363. you come chat with me,
  364. XXX!
  365. I know how busy you are. Wait...
  366. Are you hurt? Even a little?
  367. Then I'll heal you up real fast!
  368.  
  369. Whew! There. I can't stand to see
  370. you hurt. It's like I'm hurt too.
  371. And you know why?
  372.  
  373. Sure you do. Because I love you
  374. bunches and bunches—more than
  375. anyone from any other world!
  376. You were the first friend I made
  377. here. And you know what? That
  378. kind of friendship lasts forever!
  379.  
  380. MID_ELIWOD_STRONGEST: Looking back on our first meeting,
  381. it now seems that we were destined
  382. to cross paths from the start.
  383.  
  384. You believe in every one of us,
  385. of course, and you give your
  386. all...to us all.
  387.  
  388. But I take special courage from
  389. knowing you. It's as if you're
  390. a beacon of hope.
  391.  
  392. I feel as if I could overcome any
  393. obstacle, and I have too rarely
  394. felt such strength.
  395.  
  396. This is why I hope to
  397. keep fighting alongside you, for
  398. as long as you'll have me.
  399.  
  400. MID_EST_STRONGEST: Abel and I run a small shop
  401. together back home in Altea.
  402.  
  403. That was always my wish for us,
  404. but I'm glad to be here, helping you
  405. with this fight.
  406.  
  407. After all, that's how I met you, and
  408. you've shown me all the different
  409. bonds people can share...
  410.  
  411. I used to see things a bit
  412. childishly, but seeing that means
  413. I'm an adult now, right? Haha!
  414.  
  415. In any case, thank you for all
  416. you've helped me to see. I'll keep
  417. counting on you!
  418.  
  419. MID_FA_STRONGEST: Ha ha! I'm having so much fun
  420. here, getting to play with
  421. everyone!
  422.  
  423. Every day, all the time!
  424. Play, play, play, play,
  425. play...zzz...
  426.  
  427. Zzzzz... Oh, what? Sorry—
  428. getting sleepy. Is it nap time yet?
  429. Nap time, nap time, nap...
  430.  
  431. zzzzzz.
  432.  
  433. MID_FERICIA_STRONGEST: Oh! I'm so glad I found you! Here,
  434. take this! I made you a pot of tea!
  435. It's basically a miracle!
  436.  
  437. Don't laugh—it took me 14 tries!
  438. Here, taste some! ...So, how is it?
  439.  
  440. You like it?! I'm so relieved!
  441. I've finally been able to do
  442. SOMETHING to repay you.
  443.  
  444. I'm such a klutz, but you're always
  445. so understanding and kind.
  446. I wanted to thank you for that.
  447.  
  448. I've been working hard to be a
  449. good help to you, and I promise
  450. to keep doing my best!
  451.  
  452. MID_FIR_STRONGEST: I've fought and sparred, and
  453. sparred and fought, pretty much
  454. constantly since I got here.
  455.  
  456. I think I'm nearer to mastering the
  457. sword, but I have to say that you've
  458. taught me something new.
  459.  
  460. You've shown me that strength isn't
  461. just about blades and battles,
  462. XXX.
  463.  
  464. It takes far greater strength to
  465. want to protect others and
  466. keep the peace—as you do.
  467.  
  468. I would like to stay by your side
  469. and continue learning what
  470. strength truly is.
  471.  
  472. You seem to be great at so many
  473. things—not just tactics. I look forward
  474. to learning from the master!
  475.  
  476. MID_FLOLINA_STRONGEST: Could you maybe give me
  477. a moment of your time?
  478.  
  479. Sorry to bother you, but there's
  480. something I...I have to say.
  481.  
  482. You know how hard I find it
  483. to put things into words.
  484. But I'm...
  485.  
  486. I'm really happy to have fought
  487. under your guidance! I've gotten
  488. more capable in battle!
  489.  
  490. So I just wanted to thank you
  491. from the bottom of my heart.
  492.  
  493. Hee hee! I hope that made it
  494. clear how much I want to
  495. keep fighting for you!
  496.  
  497. MID_FREDERIK_STRONGEST: Why, you're hard at work as
  498. always, XXX!
  499.  
  500. If you're on patrol, please allow
  501. me to assist you.
  502.  
  503. I shall try to predict your path and
  504. remove any pebbles or weeds that
  505. might obstruct your progress.
  506.  
  507. My foremost duty will always be to
  508. the royal house of Ylisse—that will
  509. never change. But...
  510.  
  511. I feel I should make time to look
  512. after you as well. Perhaps I've
  513. grown attached to you...
  514.  
  515. Well, enough lollygagging—I have
  516. pebbles to clear. Please, don't
  517. mind me! Continue patrolling!
  518.  
  519. MID_GOHDON_STRONGEST: Thanks so much for all your
  520. encouragement. I was only able to
  521. work this hard because of you.
  522.  
  523. With your leadership, I was able to
  524. help out lots of times, and that
  525. makes me real happy.
  526.  
  527. I just wish I looked as grown-up as
  528. I feel! Hahaha—I guess that's asking
  529. too much.
  530.  
  531. I do feel like I'll continue to grow as
  532. long as I'm with you, though.
  533. Thanks.
  534.  
  535. MID_GUIRE_STRONGEST: Hey there. Seems like I've
  536. been seeing a lot of you lately,
  537. XXX.
  538.  
  539. Here to beg more candy off me?
  540.  
  541. I'm not sharing this one, though—
  542. it's my favorite right now. Packed
  543. with sweet, sweet honey...
  544.  
  545. Hm? You don't want candy? You
  546. got work for me, then? ...No?
  547.  
  548. Wait, you're not just here to spend
  549. time with me, are ya? 'Cause that'd
  550. make you a big ol' marshmallow.
  551.  
  552. Only softies try to build relationships
  553. up for their own sake. And here you
  554. are—soft as cotton candy.
  555.  
  556. Heh. I changed my mind. Take the
  557. honey candy. No reason—just my
  558. way of saying thanks.
  559.  
  560. MID_GUNTHER_STRONGEST: I heard from your commander
  561. that you're a...Great Hero.
  562.  
  563. Come now—out with it. Are you
  564. a Great Hero? Perhaps you're too
  565. humble to say as much.
  566.  
  567. You might not have my years,
  568. but embrace who you are and
  569. develop your potential!
  570.  
  571. That weapon of yours—make
  572. yourself into the sort of person
  573. who is worthy of holding it!
  574.  
  575. I have known another one in my
  576. days who faced a similar
  577. dilemma.
  578.  
  579. Now, before you dismiss this as
  580. the ramblings of an old man,
  581. know this:
  582.  
  583. I have also sensed it while we've
  584. been in battle—a gap between your
  585. title and your confidence.
  586.  
  587. No need to apologize. It's only
  588. natural, and it's also where
  589. I come in.
  590.  
  591. Let this veteran fight for you a bit
  592. longer. I offer my sword and my years,
  593. until you are great inside and out.
  594.  
  595. MID_HAROLD_STRONGEST: Ah, XXX!
  596. I wanted to tell you—the town is
  597. abuzz about the Order of Heroes!
  598.  
  599. True heroes set the gossips to
  600. their work! Perhaps you should
  601. adopt a new heroic pose!
  602.  
  603. I've practiced a few, but every
  604. time I try one out, I am struck from
  605. above by wild-pegasus dung.
  606.  
  607. Does that happen to you as well?
  608. No? Just me? Then you can pose
  609. without worry!
  610.  
  611. And don't worry about being
  612. vulnerable to attack when posing.
  613. I'll eliminate any villainous fiends!
  614.  
  615. I will fight off any number of them,
  616. my strength fueled by the flames
  617. of our friendship!
  618.  
  619. MID_HAWKEYE_STRONGEST: It is time for us to have words
  620. of weight. You and I, now.
  621.  
  622. I sense that you find me strange.
  623. Perhaps even stranger than
  624. most people here find me.
  625.  
  626. I am from the deep desert, and those
  627. from outside it see me as
  628. outside themselves.
  629.  
  630. Do you feel the same? About me?
  631. Or more importantly, about
  632. yourself?
  633.  
  634. You and I are the same in one
  635. regard. We both want to ensure
  636. that peace persists.
  637.  
  638. Like the sands of time, which flow
  639. but never change, you and I will
  640. always be there for the world.
  641.  
  642. MID_HECTOR_STRONGEST: I'm no poet, friend, so bear with
  643. me here. I have a hard time
  644. putting my thoughts into words.
  645.  
  646. But before I joined you, I thought
  647. that as long as I just kept on
  648. swinging in battle...
  649.  
  650. I'd always come out on top and
  651. bring everyone back from battle,
  652. safe and sound.
  653.  
  654. Then I noticed how you, as
  655. tactician, see the line between
  656. life and death like no one else.
  657.  
  658. Not sure why, but that hit me hard.
  659. Anyway, know that I've got your
  660. back—long as you've got mine.
  661.  
  662. MID_HENRI_STRONGEST: Oh! Planning on sending me
  663. out to kill some more,
  664. XXX?
  665.  
  666. Nya ha! That's great!
  667.  
  668. Who's my target? A Hero? Emblian
  669. soldier? Oh! Could it be someone
  670. in the Order of Heroes?
  671.  
  672. Huh? Allies don't kill each other?
  673. Who told you THAT? Eh, if you say
  674. so, I guess...
  675.  
  676. Then again, I like this place, and I
  677. wouldn't want anyone to die.
  678.  
  679. You won't die, will you,
  680. XXX?
  681.  
  682. If you died, I'd have to invent a
  683. horrible new hex for whoever killed
  684. you. So just...stay alive, OK?
  685.  
  686. MID_HINATA_STRONGEST: Hey there! Just wanna throw a
  687. whole bucket of thanks on you for
  688. putting me in battle a lot.
  689.  
  690. You know I live for that, and that
  691. sorta thing helps me keep my skills
  692. sharp, XXX!
  693.  
  694. Have to admit that when I first
  695. landed here, I was all kinds of
  696. homesick.
  697.  
  698. I mean, seriously! This place doesn't
  699. have anything good from Hoshido!
  700. No dojos. No miso soup.
  701.  
  702. But you know what? I love this
  703. place now, even without
  704. the soup!
  705.  
  706. Good for a guy to open up to
  707. new things, right? Otherwise,
  708. life's just dull.
  709.  
  710. Besides, battling strong foes from
  711. so many worlds helps me get
  712. better at protecting Lord Takumi.
  713.  
  714. Ha! Don't think I forgot about you.
  715. Me and my katana? We are
  716. SO here to keep you safe!
  717.  
  718. MID_HINOKA_STRONGEST: Hey, you! I just finished grooming
  719. my pegasus and was wondering if
  720. you'd like to take a ride with us.
  721.  
  722. I've been wanting something to
  723. do to bring us closer together,
  724. and this is perfect!
  725.  
  726. We can talk while we admire the
  727. view, soaring through the sky—
  728. you'll love it!
  729.  
  730. Hm? We're already close? That's
  731. really sweet...and I'm a little
  732. embarrassed now.
  733.  
  734. Well, I still think a joyride
  735. through the skies is in order—
  736. you coming?
  737.  
  738. MID_JEIGUN_STRONGEST: I have served many years as a
  739. knight, but never have I met
  740. someone quite like you.
  741.  
  742. Do we all follow you because you
  743. summoned us? I think not. At
  744. least not solely.
  745.  
  746. There is something about you that
  747. inspires others to fight for you.
  748. I can't put it into words...
  749.  
  750. It reminds me a bit of Prince Marth,
  751. who also naturally draws heroes
  752. to his cause.
  753.  
  754. In any case, I sincerely wish to
  755. spend what days I have left
  756. fighting at your side.
  757.  
  758. MID_JOKER_STRONGEST: Oh. Did you need something?
  759. You've brought me tea?
  760. I'm not thirsty at the moment...
  761.  
  762. But I shall drink it nonetheless.
  763. I wouldn't want to waste tea.
  764.  
  765. It's a bit cold. And too bitter. I
  766. would never have served it. But...
  767. I sense the effort that went into it.
  768.  
  769. Regardless of skill, there is flavor
  770. in devotion, a taste in affection.
  771. You thought of me in making this.
  772.  
  773. Next time, I shall make the tea for
  774. you, and it will taste better than
  775. anything you have ever known.
  776.  
  777. MID_JORJUE_STRONGEST: You've heard tales of me? Well, it's
  778. not as if I was trying to keep my
  779. life secret, I suppose.
  780.  
  781. True or not, rumors spread like
  782. wildfires. There's no point in trying
  783. to correct or refute them.
  784.  
  785. It's refreshing to speak so frankly.
  786. It's wonderful that everyone here
  787. trusts each other so implicitly.
  788.  
  789. Being in such company agrees with
  790. me very much. Thank you for
  791. bringing me here.
  792.  
  793. I do believe I shall stick around,
  794. if you don't mind.
  795.  
  796. MID_KAGEROU_STRONGEST: I've been doing flower arrangements
  797. from whatever I can find in this
  798. world. Here's my latest creation.
  799.  
  800. What do you think of it? Ah. It looks
  801. like something from a hellscape?
  802. Well, I appreciate your honesty.
  803.  
  804. Curious to think how I'd have never
  805. been able to work with these flowers
  806. had I not come to this world.
  807.  
  808. In a way, you have played a large
  809. part in the creation of this
  810. flower arrangement.
  811.  
  812. I can thank you for many things,
  813. and most of all, that every one
  814. of us remains safe.
  815.  
  816. So I vow to keep you safe, no matter
  817. what dread events come to pass,
  818. XXX.
  819.  
  820. MID_KAIN_STRONGEST: Sir Jagen used to always lecture
  821. me about my tendency to rush in
  822. without thinking.
  823.  
  824. But with you in charge, I don't lose
  825. track of myself in battle and I can
  826. do my job.
  827.  
  828. Thanks, XXX.
  829.  
  830. With you, I can fight with the fire
  831. in my belly but not lose my cool.
  832. That's always been my goal.
  833.  
  834. MID_KAMUI_F_STRONGEST: Ah, XXX!
  835. Thanks for coming to visit me
  836. again!
  837.  
  838. Oh, sorry I keep patting you on
  839. the head—it's a bad habit I picked
  840. up back home.
  841.  
  842. But I do think that touch can bring
  843. friends closer than words can,
  844. you know? Wanna try it?
  845.  
  846. Heehee—you're so gentle! It's
  847. been a while since someone
  848. patted ME on the head. It's nice!
  849.  
  850. Anytime you want to pat or be
  851. patted, let me know! It can only
  852. help us be stronger together.
  853.  
  854. MID_KAMUI_M_STRONGEST: It's good to see you. We've spent
  855. so much time together, I'm uneasy
  856. when you're not around.
  857.  
  858. I'd like to just keep you where I
  859. can see you, but people would
  860. call me overprotective. Heh.
  861.  
  862. I've felt...overprotected my whole
  863. life, so it's a strange feeling to
  864. want to do it myself.
  865.  
  866. You are obviously essential to the
  867. realm's defense, so it's natural to
  868. protect you, I suppose.
  869.  
  870. I guess I'm saying we've got your
  871. back, so don't worry about what
  872. path to choose. Just keep going.
  873.  
  874. MID_KATUA_STRONGEST: Huh. Is that how I seem? Like I'm
  875. always staring off into the
  876. distance?
  877.  
  878. Heehee! I guess if that's how it
  879. seems, it's probably true, right?
  880.  
  881. But I know how to fix it—by
  882. spending more time with you,
  883. developing our...bond.
  884.  
  885. I know that every day I spend with
  886. you will help me focus and keep me
  887. looking straight ahead.
  888.  
  889. As long as I have you by my side,
  890. I can do anything.
  891.  
  892. MID_KAZAHANA_STRONGEST: Hya! And...hyaaa-hyaaa! Whew.
  893. That's enough training for now.
  894. I think I did pretty well!
  895.  
  896. What? My footwork was a little
  897. sloppy? And my follow-up was slow?
  898. And I wasn't flexible enough?
  899.  
  900. Yikes, Commander, you're so
  901. picky!
  902.  
  903. Huh? So what if I called you my
  904. commander? You're really the most
  905. important one around here.
  906.  
  907. Oh, come on! You know it! I know it!
  908. Everyone knows it! Don't be
  909. so modest.
  910.  
  911. I didn't mean to demote anyone
  912. else around here. I'll just let it
  913. be our little nickname...
  914.  
  915. OK, Commander?
  916.  
  917. MID_LAZWARD_STRONGEST: Well, this must be fate! I was
  918. just thinking about you, and here
  919. you are, XXX.
  920. There's something I've been
  921. wanting to share with you. But,
  922. please, tell no one else.
  923.  
  924. This isn't the first time I've been
  925. summoned from one world to
  926. another. No, indeed.
  927.  
  928. You see, I came to this world
  929. from Nohr—but I am not
  930. really OF Nohr.
  931.  
  932. I was summoned there from yet a
  933. third world. I changed my look
  934. and my name for Nohr.
  935.  
  936. I needed to tell you because I don't
  937. want there to be any secrets
  938. between us, friend.
  939.  
  940. My real name is Inigo, and you have
  941. my promise to always fight for
  942. you—with a smile on my face!
  943.  
  944. Now, how about you and I go run
  945. off and grab a cup of tea?
  946.  
  947. MID_LEON_STRONGEST: I'm not surprised to see you here,
  948. XXX.
  949. You always seem eager to chat.
  950.  
  951. Even when I am cold and distant
  952. with you, you check up on me
  953. after battle with a kind word.
  954.  
  955. And that concern and connection
  956. have made me stronger than I've
  957. ever been.
  958.  
  959. This isn't something I would
  960. normally say aloud, but you make
  961. me feel valuable—even needed.
  962.  
  963. That's why...I want you always to
  964. stay by my side.
  965.  
  966. I never would have imagined this
  967. when I first got here, but...I feel
  968. as if I could trust my life to you.
  969.  
  970. Argh, I sound pathetic. I don't
  971. imagine you'll ever let me hear
  972. the end of this, will you?
  973.  
  974. MID_LEYVAN_STRONGEST: It's nothing worth talking about, but
  975. there's something I might as well
  976. tell you, XXX.
  977. A long time ago, I was from a
  978. royal house—a house that was
  979. destroyed by our enemies.
  980.  
  981. That was why I became a
  982. mercenary—to seek revenge
  983. on those who did it.
  984.  
  985. I sought power—and always more
  986. of it—to better exact my revenge.
  987.  
  988. But now, none of that matters.
  989. I've come to my senses after
  990. watching you at work here.
  991.  
  992. Does any of that make sense?
  993. If not, forget I said anything.
  994. I'll still fight hard for you.
  995.  
  996. MID_LILINA_STRONGEST: There's someone in my life whom
  997. I dearly want to keep safe.
  998.  
  999. That is what has driven me to do my
  1000. best in all things. But now I realize
  1001. there's a limit to what I can do alone.
  1002.  
  1003. Watching you, always working with
  1004. our allies, has shown me that.
  1005. People flock to you!
  1006.  
  1007. And you're all the stronger for it.
  1008. You seem to share that very
  1009. quality with Roy...
  1010.  
  1011. So, I just wanted to say thank you.
  1012. I hope I'll never lose your kind support.
  1013. I know you'll never lose mine.
  1014.  
  1015. MID_LIN_STRONGEST: I'd like to offer my thanks today.
  1016. It's for all the times you've helped me.
  1017. Nothing more, nothing less.
  1018.  
  1019. But while I'm at it, I should also
  1020. thank you for giving me courage
  1021. and never failing to be kind.
  1022.  
  1023. Those are rarer qualities than
  1024. you'd think. In fact...
  1025.  
  1026. I think you're as precious to me
  1027. as the breeze that blows across
  1028. the open plains of Sacae.
  1029.  
  1030. Oh my! Pay me no mind. But,
  1031. please, know that I'm always
  1032. here for you, all right?
  1033.  
  1034. MID_LIZ_STRONGEST: Hey! I was thinking that I've grown
  1035. up a lot since I got here. Don'tcha
  1036. think, XXX?
  1037.  
  1038. I've learned to fight, I've made
  1039. friends with people in the Order,
  1040. and I always clean my plate!
  1041.  
  1042. ...Thanks! Glad you agree! Of
  1043. course, it's all because of your help
  1044. that I'm so princessy now!
  1045.  
  1046. I feel like I'm one step closer to
  1047. being the ideal lady. I hope you'll
  1048. keep helping me get there!
  1049.  
  1050. Oh, and I've gotten better at little
  1051. pranks, too. I can't wait for you to
  1052. find the frog I just hid!
  1053.  
  1054. MID_LLEU_STRONGEST: Sheesh. You just can't help poking
  1055. your nose in my business, can you?
  1056. Well, fine.
  1057.  
  1058. Thing is, maybe since you did keep
  1059. prodding me, I might have gotten
  1060. better than I would have otherwise.
  1061.  
  1062. Hey, I said maybe. That's all.
  1063.  
  1064. I know you only spent time with me
  1065. because you feel sorry for...
  1066. well, whatever has me twisted up.
  1067.  
  1068. Right? You don't need to admit it.
  1069. Besides, I'm the one who got
  1070. the short end of the stick here.
  1071.  
  1072. Now that I'm stuck with you,
  1073. I have one more person I need
  1074. to look out for! So, uh, thanks.
  1075.  
  1076. MID_LUCINA_STRONGEST: This world is a truly beautiful place.
  1077. The white castle, clear blue skies...
  1078. and all the flowers, of course.
  1079.  
  1080. They are, all of them, irreplaceable.
  1081. We must protect this world at
  1082. all costs, XXX.
  1083.  
  1084. My homeland was destroyed by war.
  1085. I can't bear to let anyone else
  1086. experience that loss.
  1087.  
  1088. ...Hm? Thank you for trying to
  1089. lift my spirits...
  1090.  
  1091. I'm always touched by your
  1092. kindness. I hope that, whatever may
  1093. come, we'll remain side by side.
  1094.  
  1095. MID_LUNA_STRONGEST: Ah, THERE you are! Hey, do you
  1096. want to form a team with me?
  1097. I mean, we already hang out...
  1098.  
  1099. Great! We are now the
  1100. SelenXXX
  1101. Alliance!
  1102.  
  1103. Why are you making that face?!
  1104. It does NOT sound dumb!
  1105.  
  1106. I'll have you know I put A LOT of
  1107. time and effort into that name so
  1108. we could become closer friends!
  1109.  
  1110. Huh? Oh, well, that's better.
  1111. I knew you'd come around. Now
  1112. that we're a team, no secrets!
  1113.  
  1114. My name's not Selena, and I'm
  1115. not from the world you found me in.
  1116. You can call me Severa...privately.
  1117.  
  1118. MID_MARIA_STRONGEST: Heeheehee! What do you think—
  1119. the strongest I've been yet,
  1120. right?
  1121.  
  1122. My siblings have always protected
  1123. me, and I knew someday I had to be
  1124. strong enough to protect myself.
  1125.  
  1126. But you've helped me realize that
  1127. "someday" isn't good enough!
  1128. I need to be strong now.
  1129.  
  1130. Fighting is no fun, but I think it's
  1131. why I've gotten as strong as I have.
  1132.  
  1133. Thanks for helping me realize my
  1134. dream!
  1135.  
  1136. MID_MARICH_STRONGEST: It's been some time since we began
  1137. to fight side by side, yet you still
  1138. find ways to surprise me.
  1139.  
  1140. I don't mean that in a bad way!
  1141. You're just...a very mysterious
  1142. person.
  1143.  
  1144. You're not like anyone I've met.
  1145. The things you come up with...the
  1146. rest of us have never dreamed of.
  1147.  
  1148. You are like a wind that blows
  1149. through each of our lives and
  1150. changes our fates.
  1151.  
  1152. So please know that I believe in
  1153. you and your abilities. I will work
  1154. with you as long as you'll have me.
  1155.  
  1156. MID_MARKS_STRONGEST: Here, take this practice sword,
  1157. XXX. I borrowed it
  1158. from Commander Anna.
  1159.  
  1160. You're going to join me for training.
  1161. What, don't you want to? I'm not
  1162. trying to forge you into a fighter.
  1163.  
  1164. I believe that meeting a friend
  1165. blade to blade is the truest way to
  1166. give voice to our inner qualities.
  1167.  
  1168. In swordplay, you can share your
  1169. hopes and fears as our leader and I
  1170. can parry with things unsaid.
  1171.  
  1172. I wouldn't spar like this with just
  1173. anyone. You've proven yourself
  1174. worthy on the battlefield!
  1175.  
  1176. Now, what say you? Would you
  1177. still rather not...?
  1178.  
  1179. Oh, you'll join me! Well then, know
  1180. that it is my honor completely,
  1181. XXX.
  1182.  
  1183. MID_MARTH_STRONGEST: Over all the battles we've fought
  1184. together, I have come to see my
  1185. own powerlessness.
  1186.  
  1187. As but one, I cannot accomplish
  1188. anything. Together, we can face
  1189. everything.
  1190.  
  1191. That is why having you at my side
  1192. gives me courage beyond the
  1193. telling of it.
  1194.  
  1195. I shall continue to fight at your
  1196. side as long as you will allow me.
  1197.  
  1198. I am eternally grateful that we
  1199. may count on one another.
  1200.  
  1201. MID_MATTHEW_STRONGEST: Whoa, never a dull moment with you
  1202. around, is there? You really keep
  1203. a spy on his toes!
  1204.  
  1205. Speaking of which, you know how
  1206. we spies stick to the shadows?
  1207. It's not smart to have close friends.
  1208.  
  1209. Makes sense, right? A spy needs
  1210. the flexibility to do what he
  1211. needs to, when he needs to.
  1212.  
  1213. Friends just muck things up.
  1214.  
  1215. The only problem with all this
  1216. is you. You're the kind of person
  1217. a spy can't evade forever.
  1218.  
  1219. Oh, I'll keep trying, friend, but for
  1220. now, forget I said anything.
  1221.  
  1222. MID_MINERBA_STRONGEST: I do not have what is required of a
  1223. ruler. During my time ruling in place
  1224. of my brother...
  1225.  
  1226. I have allowed rebellion, been
  1227. captured, and displayed my own
  1228. powerlessness and disgrace.
  1229.  
  1230. Perhaps I could better rule with a
  1231. tactician like you at my side...
  1232.  
  1233. You have a unique quality about
  1234. you—you make me feel as if...
  1235.  
  1236. I still have much I can accomplish.
  1237. Thank you for that. I swear to not
  1238. give up and to look to the future.
  1239.  
  1240. MID_MISHEIL_STRONGEST: I died once—did you know? Minerva
  1241. defeated me, crushed all my mighty
  1242. ambitions on that battlefield.
  1243.  
  1244. I should have stayed dead, but a
  1245. foolish spark remained in my heart.
  1246.  
  1247. Now I must admit that my time with
  1248. you has kindled that tiny spark
  1249. once more.
  1250.  
  1251. With the power I've gained at your
  1252. side, I could dream once more of
  1253. conquering worlds...
  1254.  
  1255. Regardless, until I make my
  1256. decision, I will follow you and see
  1257. what else I might gain.
  1258.  
  1259. MID_NABARL_STRONGEST: I usually fight alone. However...
  1260.  
  1261. I can imagine a future fighting with
  1262. all of you.
  1263.  
  1264. Never mind. Don't listen to anything
  1265. I've said.
  1266.  
  1267. It's all nonsense, and I blame you
  1268. for my sentimentality,
  1269. XXX.
  1270.  
  1271. MID_NACIEN_STRONGEST: I, Narcian, have a bone to pick
  1272. with you! I heard that you said I am
  1273. completely full of myself!
  1274.  
  1275. Did you mean it as an insult?
  1276. Because it's not! I am full of
  1277. nothing BUT me!
  1278.  
  1279. How else would I have clawed my
  1280. way to the top? Confidence is king,
  1281. and I would be emperor!
  1282.  
  1283. Hmpf. You might be the first one
  1284. to ever stand there and say
  1285. such a thing to my face.
  1286.  
  1287. I'll make you regret that you
  1288. picked a fight with me, Narcian!
  1289. One day I'll make you kneel.
  1290.  
  1291. Then I'll pet your head like a little
  1292. kitty—and keep you at my side
  1293. forever! Ha ha ha ha!
  1294.  
  1295. MID_NINO_STRONGEST: I'm so happy to be here, where I
  1296. can spend time with so many
  1297. nice people. Every day is so fun.
  1298.  
  1299. I had this once before, surrounded
  1300. by people I loved. They were
  1301. all...like family.
  1302.  
  1303. That life is over, but it was so
  1304. much fun while it lasted. I'm glad
  1305. now, thinking back on it.
  1306.  
  1307. Those memories were painful for
  1308. a while, but you helped me
  1309. remember the good times.
  1310.  
  1311. Thank you! I promise to work
  1312. so very hard for you. Just you
  1313. wait and see!
  1314.  
  1315. MID_NONO_STRONGEST: Found you, XXX!
  1316. Let's play together! How about
  1317. some hide-and-dragonseek? Tag?
  1318.  
  1319. Huh? You just want to chat? I like
  1320. to run around a bunch, but if that's
  1321. what you want, we can do that!
  1322.  
  1323. I love playing with you—you're nice
  1324. and you're fun and I feel safe with
  1325. you. Hm? Aww! How sweet!
  1326.  
  1327. Well, if that's how we both feel,
  1328. let's stick together forever and
  1329. ever!
  1330.  
  1331. Since I'm older, I'll be sure to
  1332. always keep you safe,
  1333. XXX! It's a promise!
  1334.  
  1335. MID_OBORO_STRONGEST: Oh, is something wrong,
  1336. XXX?
  1337.  
  1338. You haven't ruined your nice clothes,
  1339. have you? Or ripped a stitch? Or
  1340. spilled soup on yourself?
  1341.  
  1342. Oh, I'm only kidding. I know you
  1343. come around for more than
  1344. my needle and thread.
  1345.  
  1346. You know, I do like it when I see
  1347. you in your nice, clean uniform.
  1348. It's so dapper!
  1349.  
  1350. I like it even more when you don't
  1351. get blood all over it—means you've
  1352. come back safe from battle!
  1353.  
  1354. Clothes can always be replaced,
  1355. but you're one of a kind. I just
  1356. couldn't do without you.
  1357.  
  1358. So I promise to always protect
  1359. you...and to help you keep your
  1360. uniform in top shape!
  1361.  
  1362. MID_ODIN_STRONGEST: Ha! My third eye told me you
  1363. would appear in this holy shrine
  1364. to heroism and warfare.
  1365.  
  1366. I would speak with the anointed
  1367. champion, plucked by fate from—
  1368. Wait, come back! Don't leave!
  1369.  
  1370. I just wanted to say I knew I'd run
  1371. into you if I waited here. I actually
  1372. need to talk with you.
  1373.  
  1374. I feel like we've gotten real close,
  1375. and I don't want to keep secrets
  1376. from you.
  1377.  
  1378. I must therefore reveal that I am
  1379. NOT Odin at all but a warrior of
  1380. hope from another time...Owain!
  1381.  
  1382. Yeah, yeah, enough with the
  1383. theatrics... But let me tell you this:
  1384. I have not and will not lie to you.
  1385.  
  1386. MID_OGUMA_STRONGEST: Since meeting you all, I've learned
  1387. that strength comes in many forms.
  1388.  
  1389. The strength to protect peace...
  1390. is not the strength I learned as a
  1391. gladiator, killing for sport.
  1392.  
  1393. I've learned much from you,
  1394. XXX. And I will
  1395. learn more yet.
  1396.  
  1397. I will become stronger. I will learn
  1398. to swing my blade in service of a
  1399. lasting peace.
  1400.  
  1401. MID_OLIVIE_STRONGEST: Umm... Thank you for always taking
  1402. time out of your busy day to come
  1403. and watch me dance!
  1404.  
  1405. I've traveled a lot, but I've never
  1406. been somewhere like this before.
  1407. I was pretty nervous at first...
  1408.  
  1409. But you always stayed near me and
  1410. kept a friendly eye on me. I think
  1411. that's why I've adjusted so well.
  1412.  
  1413. I...I hope this isn't too forward, but
  1414. I'd like you to see my newest
  1415. dance.
  1416.  
  1417. I chose the choreography in
  1418. honor of our world...and the
  1419. relationship you and I share.
  1420.  
  1421. MID_PAORA_STRONGEST: Of course, Princess Minerva will
  1422. always be my liege and foremost
  1423. in my thoughts.
  1424.  
  1425. And obviously my two sisters are
  1426. very dear to me. However...
  1427.  
  1428. I must confess that someone else
  1429. is now occupying many of my
  1430. thoughts. Someone I met here...
  1431.  
  1432. Ahem. I hope I can continue to stay
  1433. by your side and make you proud.
  1434.  
  1435. Oh, thank you so much! You've
  1436. made me so happy!
  1437.  
  1438. MID_PIERI_STRONGEST: Oh, I've been looking for you.
  1439. I have something tasty-wasty
  1440. that I made for you!
  1441.  
  1442. Cooked it myself. Oh, and I sliced
  1443. and diced the meat—and all
  1444. the veggies too!
  1445.  
  1446. Eat up while it's hot. Like it?
  1447. Scrumptious, right? YAY!
  1448.  
  1449. My mommy was great at cooking.
  1450. That's why I want to be good at it too.
  1451. That way, it's like she's with me!
  1452.  
  1453. More than anything, it means
  1454. that I know how to make you
  1455. happy-wappy!
  1456.  
  1457. So, count on Peri to spice
  1458. things up in the battle AND the
  1459. kitchen from now on!
  1460.  
  1461. MID_REFLET_F_STRONGEST: We've been through a lot together
  1462. on the battlefield, and I've watched
  1463. you every step of the way.
  1464.  
  1465. Not to be presumptuous, but the
  1466. way you fight, your tactical skill, the
  1467. way you keep everyone safe...
  1468.  
  1469. It all reminds me of myself and how
  1470. I led my friends in battle back in my
  1471. own world.
  1472.  
  1473. That means I also know how much
  1474. you care about all of us and how
  1475. painful your position can be.
  1476.  
  1477. If that weight gets to be too much,
  1478. I want you to lean on me. After all,
  1479. I've been at this for a while...
  1480.  
  1481. I might just come up with an
  1482. amazing plan that solves all your
  1483. problems, on or off the battlefield!
  1484.  
  1485. MID_REFLET_M_STRONGEST: I appreciate the opportunity you've
  1486. given me to observe your battle
  1487. tactics in depth.
  1488.  
  1489. Every time we head out, I can't
  1490. help but be proud that you've
  1491. chosen me to fight at your side.
  1492.  
  1493. But I do feel bad for interfering
  1494. with the bonding process between
  1495. partners.
  1496.  
  1497. You and Alfonse share something
  1498. special, right? Similar to the bond
  1499. between Chrom and me?
  1500.  
  1501. But there is also an understanding
  1502. between fellow tacticians, and I
  1503. vow to support you to the end.
  1504.  
  1505. MID_RIFF_STRONGEST: I must admit...being surrounded by
  1506. so many young people has me
  1507. pushing myself beyond my years.
  1508.  
  1509. But the journey has been very
  1510. much worthwhile. I have seen that
  1511. there is still much I can do.
  1512.  
  1513. I will keep my prayers with those
  1514. who have guided me on my way...
  1515. and that includes you.
  1516.  
  1517. Please continue to use this feeble
  1518. old man in whatever way will help
  1519. your cause.
  1520.  
  1521. Let all be as the gods will.
  1522.  
  1523. MID_RINDA_STRONGEST: Excuse me—not to embarrass you
  1524. or anything—but I wanted to thank
  1525. you.
  1526.  
  1527. Much has happened since we first
  1528. met, but I've made a lot of happy
  1529. memories with you and the others.
  1530.  
  1531. Back where I came from, I had just
  1532. lost my father, and I was...so...
  1533.  
  1534. Sorry. I'm OK now. But I wanted
  1535. you to know how grateful I am for
  1536. this new life.
  1537.  
  1538. Thank you for your concern and
  1539. your kindness. You are an
  1540. inspiration to everyone.
  1541.  
  1542. MID_RONKUU_STRONGEST: You're here again. Why? What
  1543. have I done to deserve this
  1544. attention?
  1545.  
  1546. I have no wealth, no power.
  1547. Nothing but my skills as a
  1548. swordsman.
  1549.  
  1550. What? You value my presence?
  1551. You find my help...reassuring?
  1552.  
  1553. No one has ever said that to
  1554. me before, but I am glad my
  1555. presence gives you strength.
  1556.  
  1557. Understood. I shall be your
  1558. bodyguard, then.
  1559.  
  1560. I will stay by your side for as long
  1561. as you want me.
  1562.  
  1563. MID_ROY_STRONGEST: I must become as strong as I
  1564. can to ensure that I can keep this
  1565. and all other good worlds safe.
  1566.  
  1567. I want everyone to find their happy
  1568. endings in life. But to do that,
  1569. there's still much I need to learn.
  1570.  
  1571. On the bright side, I feel that I have
  1572. learned so much just by being
  1573. near you, XXX.
  1574.  
  1575. I don't mean only about battle tactics
  1576. but also about you—where you're
  1577. from and what inspires you.
  1578.  
  1579. I hope that you and I will forever
  1580. be good friends. Know that you
  1581. can always depend on me.
  1582.  
  1583. MID_RYOUMA_STRONGEST: Care to join me for some meditation?
  1584. Then close your eyes. Empty your
  1585. mind. Envision a relaxing place.
  1586.  
  1587. I am thinking of Hoshido—cherry-
  1588. blossom trees in bloom...rain in the
  1589. gardens...a moon on the wane.
  1590.  
  1591. I must admit that when I've been
  1592. meditating of late, I have also
  1593. envisioned something new.
  1594.  
  1595. Places from this realm...the faces
  1596. of members in the Order of
  1597. Heroes...and, most of all...
  1598.  
  1599. I see you, standing on the battlefield.
  1600. That image lets me achieve inner
  1601. balance like no other.
  1602.  
  1603. I hope that you would feel just the
  1604. same from my presence here.
  1605.  
  1606. One more thing—in my own kingdom,
  1607. I would never pledge my katana
  1608. in service to another.
  1609.  
  1610. But here, it is my honor and my
  1611. privilege to serve you to the
  1612. end with my blade.
  1613.  
  1614. MID_SAIZOU_STRONGEST: Hmpf. You always spot me now
  1615. when I'm around. Not bad,
  1616. XXX.
  1617.  
  1618. You couldn't for a while, you know.
  1619. I'd be standing right here, in front of
  1620. your face, and you'd be oblivious.
  1621.  
  1622. You, our great summoner, were
  1623. wide open to attack from the
  1624. shadows! Truly disturbing.
  1625.  
  1626. And that's not all. I could follow
  1627. you for half the day without you
  1628. ever noticing that I was there.
  1629.  
  1630. Oh, now before you run away with
  1631. any foolish ideas, like maybe I
  1632. was watching out for you...
  1633.  
  1634. I should set the matter straight—
  1635. that I was only monitoring
  1636. our weak link.
  1637.  
  1638. If you get taken out, then I'll be put
  1639. in danger. If I get taken out, then my
  1640. lord, Ryoma, loses my protection.
  1641.  
  1642. What I'm trying to say is since
  1643. you got better at taking care of
  1644. yourself...
  1645.  
  1646. I may be willing to watch out for
  1647. you from the shadows. A little.
  1648.  
  1649. MID_SAKURA_STRONGEST: Oh! Thank you so very much
  1650. for checking up on me,
  1651. XXX.
  1652.  
  1653. I'm doing well, but may I tell you
  1654. something? When I first got here,
  1655. I wasn't sure how to act around you.
  1656.  
  1657. They call you a Great Hero, so I
  1658. thought I should respect such a
  1659. great person by keeping my distance.
  1660.  
  1661. But then I got to know you.
  1662. You're so kind and put everyone
  1663. at ease—most of all, me.
  1664.  
  1665. It's almost like you've become a
  1666. part of my family. I mean, here we
  1667. are now, simply chatting.
  1668.  
  1669. S-so now...I have s-something to
  1670. ask you. Would you consider
  1671. thinking of m-me...
  1672.  
  1673. as a friend?
  1674.  
  1675. What? You already do? Why, that's
  1676. wonderful! I am so glad you
  1677. summoned me into your life.
  1678.  
  1679. I promise to help you any way
  1680. that I can...friend!
  1681.  
  1682. MID_SALLYA_STRONGEST: Ah, excellent—it seems my hex
  1683. to summon you worked
  1684. immediately.
  1685.  
  1686. Yes, that's right. You came here
  1687. because of a hex—a hex that made
  1688. you want to talk to me.
  1689.  
  1690. I sprinkled powdered lizard on this
  1691. paper, and you were drawn toward it.
  1692. ...Hm? The lizard's worn off...
  1693.  
  1694. So you came here of your own free
  1695. will? Surprising, yet...not.
  1696.  
  1697. Heehee... I already have someone
  1698. I'm destined to be with, but you're
  1699. just as precious to me.
  1700.  
  1701. MID_SERGE_STRONGEST: Thank you for always supporting
  1702. me and my precious Minerva. We
  1703. both feel so safe with you!
  1704.  
  1705. To be honest, I was worried at first.
  1706. About living in a different world...
  1707. About fighting new enemies...
  1708.  
  1709. I did leave home once before, but
  1710. coming here is not the same as
  1711. crossing from Valm to Ylisse.
  1712.  
  1713. But spending time with you—learning
  1714. about this world—has filled me with
  1715. determination to protect it.
  1716.  
  1717. My homeland of Rosanne is a green
  1718. and beautiful place, just like Askr.
  1719. I hope to show it to you someday.
  1720.  
  1721. MID_SERRA_STRONGEST: By Saint Elimine, you certainly
  1722. have turned my life upside down
  1723. since you brought me here!
  1724.  
  1725. Go here...battle there...heal this
  1726. person...then that person...
  1727.  
  1728. Why, don't you realize that I'm
  1729. pretty as a petal and TWICE
  1730. as fragile?
  1731.  
  1732. But I do need to offer my thanks.
  1733. I have developed a...thicker
  1734. skin, thanks to you.
  1735.  
  1736. And by that, I mean that my skin
  1737. has actually gotten THICK,
  1738. being in such harsh conditions!
  1739.  
  1740. Still, it's not entirely awful having
  1741. everyone dote on me, hoping
  1742. that I'll help them out.
  1743.  
  1744. Don't worry. I'll always make time to
  1745. help you too—as long as you call me
  1746. Lady Serra at all times. Got it?
  1747.  
  1748. MID_SETSUNA_STRONGEST: Woo-hoo. It's you, Summoner.
  1749. You going to do more of
  1750. that summoning thing today?
  1751.  
  1752. I like a crowd. It's nice. And more
  1753. of us means more people around
  1754. to help if I fall into a trap.
  1755.  
  1756. That happens all the time,
  1757. you know. Have I ever
  1758. mentioned it?
  1759.  
  1760. But you know, more of us also
  1761. means you have less time
  1762. for me. Sad.
  1763.  
  1764. What? You promise you won't
  1765. forget about me? What?
  1766. You never could?
  1767.  
  1768. Yay. I feel the same. Are you
  1769. sure we're not the same person?
  1770. It wouldn't surprise me at all!
  1771.  
  1772. MID_SHARON_STRONGEST: You know, I consider it a high honor
  1773. and an exceptional privilege to
  1774. spend these moments with you.
  1775.  
  1776. Aw, who am I kidding,
  1777. XXX?
  1778.  
  1779. Ha! Let's drop all that royal
  1780. jibber-jabber. It's just us,
  1781. right? Right!
  1782.  
  1783. The thing is, I love being around
  1784. you. I've never been happier!
  1785.  
  1786. Sure, you're a valuable addition
  1787. to the Order of Heroes—blah,
  1788. blah, blabbity, blah.
  1789.  
  1790. But after spending so much time
  1791. with you, I just think of you
  1792. more like...a close friend.
  1793.  
  1794. Do you feel the same? Are we
  1795. friends? Best friends? On our
  1796. way to being best friends?
  1797.  
  1798. We are? Er, which one?
  1799. Never mind. I'm just delighted...
  1800. so delighted...so very...
  1801.  
  1802. Waah! You've made me cry,
  1803. you silly goose.
  1804.  
  1805. I won't forget this day. Why, I'll
  1806. save all my tears of happiness in
  1807. a vial to remind me—forever!
  1808.  
  1809. MID_SHEEDA_STRONGEST: Your strength has always impressed
  1810. me. I've always felt weak, needing
  1811. protection from others.
  1812.  
  1813. I was envious of your strength,
  1814. but I think I've got it figured out
  1815. now...
  1816.  
  1817. Your strength comes from your
  1818. belief in your allies. My "weakness"
  1819. could be your strength.
  1820.  
  1821. I would like to stay with you longer
  1822. and learn more from you and your
  1823. strength, if that's OK.
  1824.  
  1825. Heehee! I appreciate it. I look
  1826. forward to observing you right
  1827. up close...
  1828.  
  1829. MID_SIMA_STRONGEST: I have heard that you are not
  1830. originally from this world.
  1831.  
  1832. So why is it that you continue
  1833. to fight for it?
  1834.  
  1835. Is it simply that you value the
  1836. friends you have made here and
  1837. do not wish to abandon them?
  1838.  
  1839. If so...I can understand your
  1840. feelings. I, too, cannot abandon
  1841. those who need my help...
  1842.  
  1843. As such, I will not leave you here.
  1844. As long as you remain, I promise
  1845. to support you as well.
  1846.  
  1847. MID_SOFIYA_STRONGEST: Your future...has shifted and
  1848. swirled since we met.
  1849.  
  1850. At first, your future was a fog
  1851. that not even my eyes could
  1852. pierce.
  1853.  
  1854. Over time, I made out the faintest
  1855. nimbus around you. A weak
  1856. glow, if you will.
  1857.  
  1858. That glow has grown, illumined
  1859. by light—many lights, from
  1860. many sources!
  1861.  
  1862. These have mystified me until
  1863. recently, when I realized that
  1864. I...am one of those lights.
  1865.  
  1866. You invite such lights to you,
  1867. and your glow is becoming like a
  1868. beacon, banishing the fog!
  1869.  
  1870. And so...I want to stay with you
  1871. to see what your future will look
  1872. like when the fog...is gone.
  1873.  
  1874. MID_SOIREE_STRONGEST: Hey, you gonna be fighting by
  1875. our side again today? Good to
  1876. hear, XXX.
  1877.  
  1878. Fighting here has been a great
  1879. experience for me. And you're
  1880. pretty damn inspiring, you know?
  1881.  
  1882. I know you can't fight directly, but
  1883. you still always seem like the
  1884. biggest deal on the field.
  1885.  
  1886. Someday maybe I'll inspire courage
  1887. in my allies like you do. That's my
  1888. dream since I came here.
  1889.  
  1890. Until that dream comes true,
  1891. I guess I'll just have to stay near
  1892. you! Thanks, partner.
  1893.  
  1894. MID_SORT_STRONGEST: Whew, good training session! Must
  1895. be time to find a sna— Oh, hey,
  1896. XXX!
  1897.  
  1898. Awww! You brought me a sandwich!
  1899. I was just about to grab something
  1900. to eat! Thanks!
  1901.  
  1902. You're always looking out for me.
  1903. I can't even count how many times
  1904. you've saved me on the battlefield!
  1905.  
  1906. But I've noticed that people who
  1907. take care of others sometimes
  1908. forget to take care of themselves.
  1909.  
  1910. That's why I'm keeping my eye on
  1911. you! Don't push yourself too hard,
  1912. and I'll do my best to support you.
  1913.  
  1914. MID_TAKUMI_STRONGEST: I've been wondering... How do you
  1915. think of me? Am I just another
  1916. Hero to you?
  1917.  
  1918. Not that it matters to me. Just
  1919. curious. But I feel like you
  1920. acknowledge me and my skill.
  1921.  
  1922. If you didn't, why would you spend
  1923. so much time looking out for me?
  1924. ...I appreciate that, by the way.
  1925.  
  1926. I guess that's all I ever wanted—
  1927. to be acknowledged for my own
  1928. abilities. Thank you.
  1929.  
  1930. Now just you watch—I'll be the
  1931. strongest Hero you've ever
  1932. known.
  1933.  
  1934. MID_THANY_STRONGEST: Some people say I'm childish.
  1935. Not nice to say, but maybe not
  1936. totally wrong either.
  1937.  
  1938. But since I've come here and
  1939. fought alongside everyone, I feel
  1940. like I've grown up a lot!
  1941.  
  1942. Hey, and here you are, I bet,
  1943. thinking that ol' Shanna looks
  1944. just the same, right?
  1945.  
  1946. How do I know? Oh, I know.
  1947. Everyone always looks at me
  1948. like I'm just the same.
  1949.  
  1950. Looky there—it's Shanna!
  1951. And there—it's Shanna!
  1952.  
  1953. The thing is, I like being me.
  1954. So I wouldn't mind putting off
  1955. this whole growing-up thing.
  1956.  
  1957. That is, if you don't mind. Ha!
  1958. I knew you wouldn't!
  1959.  
  1960. MID_TIAMO_STRONGEST: Let's see...to summon Heroes, first I'd
  1961. have to pose, then fire a shot like so...
  1962. Yes, I have the moves down perfec—
  1963.  
  1964. Ahhh! Were you watching me?
  1965. Why didn't you say something
  1966. sooner, XXX?!
  1967.  
  1968. Hm? Because I let my guard down?
  1969. You're very rude to spy on me
  1970. like that!
  1971.  
  1972. But I must admit...it's nice that you
  1973. can see me this way and not just
  1974. as everyone's "natural talent."
  1975.  
  1976. I won't let my guard down on the
  1977. battlefield, though. You are precious
  1978. to me, and I swear to protect you.
  1979.  
  1980. MID_TIKI_STRONGEST: Heeheehee! I'm so happy not to be
  1981. alone anymore!
  1982.  
  1983. I have so many friends here—so
  1984. many people to talk to!
  1985.  
  1986. And it's all because you
  1987. summoned me here.
  1988.  
  1989. You're my favorite, you know.
  1990. Let's stay together forever!
  1991.  
  1992. MID_TIKI_A_STRONGEST: Tell me...do you look forward to
  1993. or dread the day you'll go
  1994. home from this world?
  1995.  
  1996. Personally, I can't stop thinking
  1997. about the sad day I will have to
  1998. part with all my new friends.
  1999.  
  2000. The thought of saying good-bye to
  2001. you is especially sad. I suppose it's
  2002. a sign of how close we've grown.
  2003.  
  2004. Heh. That's borrowing trouble from
  2005. the future, isn't it? Better to
  2006. concentrate on the happy present.
  2007.  
  2008. There is still plenty of time for us
  2009. to spend together, and I plan to
  2010. enjoy every moment of it.
  2011.  
  2012. Someday, when I look back on
  2013. these days, you will shine ever so
  2014. brightly in my memory...
  2015.  
  2016. MID_TSUBAKI_STRONGEST: You and I have been in battle
  2017. plenty of times now. Haven't we,
  2018. XXX?
  2019.  
  2020. I'm sure you've seen me make
  2021. little mistakes now and then.
  2022. It's only natural.
  2023.  
  2024. But it still bothers me, especially
  2025. here where I rank among the
  2026. Heroes called upon in this world.
  2027.  
  2028. I feel like I must be even more
  2029. perfect here than back home.
  2030.  
  2031. And you, Great Hero! You must be
  2032. under an even greater pressure
  2033. to be the best...of the best!
  2034.  
  2035. What? You say sometimes your
  2036. tactics aren't up to snuff?
  2037.  
  2038. Aha! How wonderful. You and I have
  2039. been hiding our little failures. Well,
  2040. your secret is safe with me.
  2041.  
  2042. We will help each other achieve
  2043. total perfection. Until then, you
  2044. can count on me—absolutely!
  2045.  
  2046. MID_URSULA_STRONGEST: You may have gleaned that I will
  2047. serve only a perfect master,
  2048. XXX.
  2049.  
  2050. I have no friendship to offer you.
  2051. Nor will I take any. It would be
  2052. an insult to the both of us.
  2053.  
  2054. Why, what are two friends but a
  2055. pair of failures who've merely
  2056. agreed to cover for each other?
  2057.  
  2058. I give you my loyalty because
  2059. you're worthy. You don't battle, but
  2060. your tactics are exquisite!
  2061.  
  2062. But...
  2063.  
  2064. I will say that if you falter, even in
  2065. the slightest, you do know how
  2066. our little arrangement ends, right?
  2067.  
  2068. Hmm, yes, I think you do. Then
  2069. best you make yourself productive.
  2070. The Blue Crow...is watching.
  2071.  
  2072. MID_VIAUR_STRONGEST: Ah, may I steal a bit of your time,
  2073. XXX?
  2074.  
  2075. I've grown fascinated with the
  2076. board games of other cultures
  2077. lately. Care to play one now?
  2078.  
  2079. Take a look—this board is the
  2080. battlefield and this dazzling little
  2081. gemstone is yours truly.
  2082.  
  2083. All of these pieces—you move
  2084. them around the board as you
  2085. would fighters in a battle.
  2086.  
  2087. Yes, yes... Of course... Very good.
  2088. You grasp the game quickly, as
  2089. I suspected you would.
  2090.  
  2091. But I see that you're not willing
  2092. to sacrifice that dazzling little
  2093. gemstone...
  2094.  
  2095. Who can blame you? It is more
  2096. scintillating than all the rest!
  2097. Still, I need to tell you...
  2098.  
  2099. You're playing that wrong. It's
  2100. better strategy to sacrifice any
  2101. piece for the greater good.
  2102.  
  2103. Much as you could choose to
  2104. rid yourself of me from your
  2105. team to serve your purposes.
  2106.  
  2107. There are other Heroes to bring
  2108. into the fold. But do I sense...that
  2109. you're repelled by the idea?
  2110.  
  2111. You don't want to sacrifice anyone,
  2112. do you? Very well. Then as the
  2113. first Hero you summoned...
  2114.  
  2115. I will make it my duty to keep
  2116. polishing myself into the most
  2117. dazzling stone in your possession!
  2118.  
  2119. MID_WENDY_STRONGEST: I've got to say that I appreciate
  2120. all of your guidance in battle.
  2121.  
  2122. But sometimes I worry that you
  2123. try to protect me too much out there.
  2124.  
  2125. Am I failing to do my part as a knight,
  2126. protecting others, if you're always
  2127. worried about my safety?
  2128.  
  2129. Maybe you think that I draw too
  2130. much attention to myself by wearing
  2131. such colorful armor.
  2132.  
  2133. But that's exactly why I do wear
  2134. this—to draw foes to me and
  2135. away from others!
  2136.  
  2137. I know that we need to act as a
  2138. team out there, but my role really is
  2139. to put myself in harm's way!
  2140.  
  2141. Still, thank you. I'll always have the
  2142. courage to protect everyone, knowing
  2143. that you're looking out for me.
  2144.  
  2145. MID_ZEFHYR_STRONGEST: I've long had the conviction that
  2146. humanity had no more worth
  2147. than the least of all fleas.
  2148.  
  2149. And then...you.
  2150.  
  2151. Your deeds here, and those of
  2152. the others... Every good act has
  2153. whittled at my certainty.
  2154.  
  2155. What I am saying is that you
  2156. have earned my attention.
  2157. Still, be careful.
  2158.  
  2159. The last person to toy with my
  2160. respect was my father. Ultimately,
  2161. I had to put an end to him.
  2162.  
  2163. Now, you have a throat. And I,
  2164. a hand. Let us hope the two
  2165. never have need to meet.
  2166.  
  2167. MID_ZERO_STRONGEST: Here you are. And here I am!
  2168. Aren't we a pair.
  2169.  
  2170. I must confess that I've grown
  2171. after each of your visits—really
  2172. and truly, I have!
  2173.  
  2174. I must also say that when I first
  2175. met you, Summoner, I thought you
  2176. were a fussy bit of butter.
  2177.  
  2178. I served you, but not happily.
  2179. But now! Oh, what a difference!
  2180. I long to always be with you.
  2181.  
  2182. I wonder, have you only indulged
  2183. your servant Niles? Or are we
  2184. becoming friends now?
  2185.  
  2186. I know some see me as unsavory.
  2187. To them I say, variety is the spice
  2188. of life! But, what say you?
  2189.  
  2190. Eh? You trust me? How curious.
  2191. Someone dear to me once
  2192. said the very same thing.
  2193.  
  2194. So, you and I will be friends through
  2195. thick and thin. And, you know me...
  2196. I always delight my friends.
