: You are...safe?
: Yes, Lord Hawkeye. I... Thank you.
: ...You look tired. I will ask Lord Eliwood to give you lighter duties...
: No... Im fine...
: I see. Then I will go. Be careful.
: Yes... Excuse me, Lord Hawkeye... Thank you for caring so much for...someone like me.
: ...In the village, I have a daughter. You look like you could be...a friend of hers...
: The village...?
: Nabata village. My home.
: Lord Hawkeye... You live in Nabata, dont you?
: Yes. Deep within the dunes, behind the desert wind...there lies our home, the village of dragons.
: Village...of dragons?
: Our village is protected by Athos... ...It is also called Utopia. Humans and dragons live together...in peace.
: Humans and dragons? Is...that true? Does such a place really exist?
: It does.
: ...I...traveled with Nils for a long time... But I had never heard of it...
: The village of dragons...exists. There are humans there, and dragons. There is no fighting.
: What... ...a wonderful place it must be. ...Dragons...living with people... ...I have dreamed of it...
: Lord Hawkeye.
: May I... Ask you something? I... Well...
: I know. You need say nothing. I have heard it from my master...
: From Lord Athos?
: Listen. My master said this to me... Humans and dragons fight and fear one another... This has not changed for a thousand years. Most humans now have never seen a dragon, but the fear still remains, carried down over time...
: But humans can change. Humans live only a short time, but they can learn and feel much in that time. So they can change.
: Humans and dragons can understand one another. The day they will understand each other will come. I believed the master when he said so.
: Yes... I...believe it, too.
Also, here's this. This could have been gotten all the way back in Chapter 22 if you were so inclined.
: So, Ninian, where in Ilia were you born? Because... I was born in Edessa. Thats where the Pegasi gather...at the spring of Pyrene.
: I... I am not so good at geography... But it was near the tallest mountain in Ilia.
: You mean the mountain of the Ice Dragon?
: ...Ice Dragon?
: Yes. A long time ago, there was a tall mountain where an ice dragon lived. Dont you know the story?
: Im sorry, I dont... Ive been traveling for a long time with my brother, and...
: Oh...I see... Well, a long time ago, there was an ice dragon in Ilia. And this kind dragon helped the people of Ilia, who had trouble living in snow year round. But a war broke out between dragons and people... And the kind dragons, not wanting to hurt the humans, went off to a faraway place.
: My sister first told me that story as a child to make me go to bed... Even now, every year, the people in that area make an offering to the mountain... When I was little, I so wanted to meet the ice dragon that I braved the cold and waited all night next to the place of offering... But I saw dawn the next morning, and the dragon never came... Then I caught a cold and my sister got very upset with me...
: ...You waited all night? Miss Florina... Werent you afraid of the dragon?
: Afraid? Why?
: Doesnt everyone think that dragons are terrifying, man-eating beasts? I mean, how could two different species ever get along?
: It doesnt matter what species you are... Look at me. My pegasus and I are of different species...
: Yeah, I guess so...
: Pegasi are all very shy around humans... But Im kind of that way, too... At first this sweet mare and I were so afraid of each other... It didnt go so well... But we played together, and swam together... And soon, we began to understand each other... And thats how we became friends... So even if two beings may be shaped a little differently... That doesnt mean they cant get along.
: I see... Yeah, you must be right! I mean...we get along, dont we?
