: Eliwood!
: Lyndis? Something the matter?
: I was watching your swordplay just now. You’re quite good. I had no idea you could handle a sword so well.
: I’ve had my share of practice. Just... I’m not sure how well it will serve me in real battle.
: Where did you learn that style?
: My father taught me the basics. Then, I received some instruction from Marcus. I spar once every two months with Hector, too.
: Sparring, huh? Interested in a new partner?
: Who, you? I don’t have a problem with that.
: Just so long as you don’t go easy on me. I’m very serious when I spar. Wouldn’t want you to get hurt.
: Of course, I understand. I’ll be ready.

: Eliwood, you’re well informed about the other lords of Lycia, are you not? Are there any lordlings close to my age, besides you and Hector?
: Of course. There’s quite a few.
: Then, some are women, I take it? If they enjoyed swordplay as much as I do, we’d become fast friends. What do you think? Know anyone?
: Hmm... Let me see...
: Someone skilled in the spear, or axe, or bow would be fine, too, of course.
: I don’t know any ladies skilled in the martial arts. Most of them never leave the castle, for that matter. The only time I see them are at the banquets and such.
: Banquets... I see. Those are no place for someone from the plains, like me. Oh well... Chancellor Reissmann tells me I need to learn manners. I have to attend all these affairs in place of my ill grandfather, you see. The chancellor doesn’t think I act enough like a lady of Caelin. That’s why I was hoping to find a lady that could teach me.
: You’ve got your work cut out for you.
: Say, could you teach me, Eliwood? Teach me how to act like a lady!
: You think I know!?
: ...No, I guess you wouldn’t. Ahhh... My grandfather must be vexed to have me as a grandchild. My late mother was gentle, well mannered, and beautiful...
: Well, you’re beautiful, Lyndis.
: Wha--? E-Eliwood! What did you--?
: Yeah, when we were sparring this last time, I was thinking... The way you move, so like the wind. It was like watching a beautiful dance.
: Oh! My swordplay is beautiful... Right, you have leave to say that.

: Say, Eliwood.
: Ah, Lyndis! You’ve gotten much better since our last match. I’ll have to do my best not to fall behind!
: Yes, well... about sparring... I was wondering in you might not teach me something else?
: Something else?
: Yes, well, you know! Even if you can’t teach me about being a lady, there is much to learn...
: Manners and such? That is fine by me, but I think you’re worrying too much. You should relax, take it in stride.
: Yes, but I have so far to go! I’m not like a lady at all. My grandfather took me in, a mixed-blood child, but I fear the other nobles of Lycia will not be so accepting. I do not want the Sacae blood in my veins to bring my grandfather shame.
: Hmph. You sound shy—Nothing like the Lyndis I know!
: What?
: When I first saw you in Khathelet, I thought, what strength she has in her eyes, that woman. I seem to remember, Lyndis, back then, you didn’t know what to think about your noble Lycian blood, but the Sacae blood in you... for that you had nothing but the purest pride. Remember how you felt. You don’t have to be like anyone else, Lyndis.
:’re right. I guess... I guess I lost myself. Thank you, Eliwood. I feel better, somewhat.
: No need to thank me.
: When I was on the plains, I used to despise the nobility. But I’ve changed. I think it happened a year ago, when I met you. You... you believed in me. You helped me.
: Hey, I wouldn’t have made it this far without your help, too. You are my good friend. This is what friends do! Now, shall we?
: Let’s go!

: Hector, got a moment?
: What’s up?
: Something I heard from Eliwood... You spar with him pretty regularly, right?
: Yup. What of it?
: I was wondering whether you’d spar with me, too?
: You? I recommend against it. I wouldn’t want to leave a scar on a little one like you.
: Hey! Just because I’m a woman doesn’t mean I’m weak!
: Nah, this isn’t about being a man or a woman. Just... my armor’s heavy riding armor, see? A swordsman such as yourself wouldn’t stand a chance.
: My! I see. I get it. So you’ve judged my strength already, then.
: That’s not what I’m saying! Oswin once taught me during training a long time ago: Heavy cavalry and swordsmen are like water and...Hey... what’s with the glare?
: Hector! I challenge you! You’ll see... You take back those words!
: Whoa...

: Lyn.
: ...
: Lyn!
: What?
: I... I, um... I thought it would be disrespectful to hold back, you see... So I went full force, I did.
: ...
: But I gotta admit, I was surprised. Your sword arm, it’s... You’re stronger than I thought.
: Why, thank you, Hector. For me, losing to you was a good lesson in my limits.
: ...Um, are you listening to me?
: I’m busy right now. I’m learning some new lunge and thrust patterns.
: Yeah, I thought you were standing different. What is that lunge used for?
: They say it’s good against axemen in heavy armor.
: Wait, that’s me! You got something personal against me, Lyn? We’re friends, right?
: Of course we are. But this... this is about me, my limits. I can’t be a burden to either you or Eliwood right now. I can fight. And I will get stronger.
: Lyn...

: Lyn.
: Hector...
: Say, Lyn... You remember when we first met?
: I do, I remember it well. It was when Caelin Castle was taken by Lord Laus. My grandfather had been taken prisoner. And you and Eliwood came to the rescue. Then, together, we fought the armies of Laus.
: Lyn. Why are we together now?
: Well...
: Because we’re friends, right? Say if you were much stronger than I was... Would that make me useless to you?
: No... Of course not.
: Fighting isn’t everything on this journey, you know. If fighting was everything, what use would we have of Merlinus?
: Well, I suppose...
: You are strong. I can vouch for that. Just, I was stronger.
: Hah!
: W-What!?
: You’re too much-- Saying that kind of things with a straight face.
: You gotta problem with my face? I’ve just gotta be me, you know...
: Yes, I know. ...Thanks. I didn’t think you cared so much about how I felt. Or is Hector gentler at heart than Hector looks? You’ve certainly done much for my courage today.
: Hmph... I’m not this way to just anyone, you know...
: What?
: A-Ah! The enemy! Let’s go, Lyn! Don’t lag behind!
: What! W-Wait up!
