Part 79: Light conversationsAre you sick of Nino and Legault reminiscing about the Black Fang yet? No? Well good, because they still have shit to say to everyone, even though they're long since gone.
: ...Huh, even as a monster, you are a handsome one, Lloyd. But you know something? I can't let this continue!
: Ah...Lloyd... ...Sniff...oh... Why does this have to happen again?
: Oh... We meet again. ...Linus... This stinks!
: Linus... I'll...see you again... I'm sure you're angry, but... Please be my friend...again...
: ...Uhai...why did this blasphemy occur? ...I'll put an end to it right away!
: ...Commander... I really didn't want to see you like this. ...All I can give you is one last act of rebellion.
: Father... Fa-Father... I... I'll...end this...I'm sorry...
Next up, Nergal. Eliwood and Hector get different dialogues with him depending on which story you're playing. For example, in Eliwood's story, Nergal taunts Eliwood about how he's forgotten Ninian, and Hector gets this:
: So you've come, Hector of Ostia. Your existence itself was my greatest miscalculation. If it had only been Eliwood, this could have been over. So, my little miscalculation, I will erase you. And leave no trace remaining.
: Do your worst!
This is actually kind of funny, because Nergal is right. Strictly speaking from a story perspective, if Hector hadn't intervened, Eliwood would have been killed (or at the very least delayed) in getting to Castle Santaruz. Lord Helman would have died before telling Eliwood to go to Laus, and Darin's preparations for war with Ostia might have actually born fruit. Regardless of that, because Darin isn't routed in Laus, he never goes to Caelin, they never meet Leila, and they never go the Dread Isle. Nergal has time to summon the dragons using Elbert's quintessence without any interference, and who knows what happens from there?
Anyway, the Hector's story dialogues.
: Did you know, Eliwood? What happened to your friend Hector? What he was thinking as he fought by your side?
: Heh heh... It's a pity. If only he had been free to return to Ostia.
: I know that I've caused much pain for my friends. But that is why... I will not lose here today!
: I cannot understand you, Hector of Ostia. Why would you do all of this for Eliwood? Is this miserable thing called friendship worth dying for?
: I don't expect you to understand. You've forgotten what it means to be human! Nergal! My connection to you... it's over! I'm finishing everything up right here!
Lyn's dialogue doesn't change, regardless of which story you're in.
: Little girl from Sacae... You'd do well to vanish. One such as you is no match for me.
: The nomads of the plains do not abandon their fellow tribespeople. Eliwood and Hector are my dear friends... Their sorrow is my sorrow. Their anger is my anger.
: Nergal! In my friends' names, I will cut you down!
Jaffar, in a completely unexpected turn of events actually does have something to say.
: Hmph... It's you, Jaffar? Turning your sword against me, your master? Do you forget who raised you? You are worthless.
: ...Wrong. I am a man.
: Oh, really? If so, then I will give you a man's death!
And finally, we have Renault. Not that you should ever actually be seeing this conversation because bringing Renault against Nergal is beyond retarded, but it does fill in a lot of Renault's backstory, in particular why the fuck he's on the Dread Isle in the first place. It should also be noted that you can only get this scene in Hector's story.
: ...Nergal, do you remember me?
: Hah. You are...Renault. So you're still eeking out a wretched existence?
: I went astray. I listened to your honeyed words... I dreamt of the impossible... the return of a lost soul. But...what you gave me was... a puppet... It was soulless...nothing more than an empty vessel!
: Just an empty vessel... Isn't that what you wanted? You desired to bring back your dead friend. You were my experiment, and I completed my morph. I'm grateful, Renault. Thanks to you, I gained power.
: You villain... You cursed him! Your crime can never be forgiven! I will end you with my hands. In the name of my lost friend!
And last but not least, the rest of the crew's pre-Light lines.
: I'll show you the strength of a knight of Pherae.
: Knights should fight, not speak! ...Was that right?
: ...Winning this battle means protecting my family.
: Let me handle this! There's much I can do.
: I... I...I'll do my best!
: I will gladly volunteer to protect Lycia with my life.
: I won't hold back! This is for all the lovely ladies I've yet to meet!
: We've made it this far. Let's get out there and win!
: My oh my... Fools aplenty. That includes me, too.
: For Bern, land of my birth... May I return to it soon!
: My pride shall not be broken! My strength holds true!
: ...I, too, will join you in this final glory.
: Hey! There's no doubt we'll win! Just don't forget my bonus!
: If he has power to rival Athos, then I must test that power myself.
: No matter what happens, I'll be at Lord Pent's side.
: Lord Elbert... I will protect your son.
: As long as there's someone to cut, you will have my aid.
: I'm trembling with anticipation!
: This looks like fun! This is what I've been waiting for!
: I've lived long enough. I've no regrets...
: What are you worried about? With me here, we can't lose!
: It is for this moment that I have lived...
