Part 43: Epilogue
: Will you attend my ascension ceremony? Hector and everyone else is coming... What? These clothes? I look silly, don't I. Formal dress is so stiff, I can't stand it... Ah... Everything's finally resolved.
: I don't know if I'm equal to the task, but I'm going to do my best for all the people who live here. Art, you... Do you really have to go? No, I understand. I'm sure that you have things you must do. Thank you for supporting me in everything.
: Here I am, Ninian!
: Um, Lord Eliwood, is Art...
: Art will be at the ceremony of ascension but must leave shortly thereafter.
: Is that so? I'm disappointed.
: Oh, Art, I want you to know something. When things are a little more settled, Ninian and I plan to be married. And...this may be a bit premature but, Art, we'd like you to name our first child. Ninian and I talked it over. You've done so much for us and we truly want this.
: Please, Art.
: If it weren't for you, I wouldn't... This world wouldn't be here. You have my heartfelt gratitude. Art...
: I'll see you again. It's a promise...my friend.
Of course, this conversation isn't possible if we didn't have a tactician. So let's pretend Art wasn't in that village in Pherae way back when.
: Hector! You came.
: Of course. It's my friend's gala occasion. I wouldn't miss it for the world. Are you ready for this?
: Yes... I think I am. I'll succeed my father as Marquess Pherae. I don't know if I'm equal to the task, but I'm going to do my best for all the people who live here.
: You'll be just fine. You'll be a marquess to rival your father. I guarantee it.
: ...Lord Eliwood?
: I'm over here, Ninian!
: Ah...Lord Hector. It's nice to see you, again.
: Oh, and here is Marquess Pherae's wife. I'm happy for you, Ninian. Standing there together, you make a handsome couple.
: Oh...thank you...
: So tell me, Eliwood, when can we expect an heir?
: Ha ha... It's nothing to be embarrassed about!
: I beg your pardon. Lord Eliwood, it's time.
: Oh, thank you, Marcus.
: Get going, Eliwood. Lady Eleanora and the people of Pherae are waiting to see you. As, no doubt, is your father. You are the guardian of Pherae's future now, Marquess.
Oh, Hector. Never change. With that, the credits roll. After the credits, we get to hear about what everyone did after all of this.
