C Support

...Cecilia. Are your wounds healed now?
Yes, I managed to survive.
I see. ...I'm sorry. I was there with you, but I couldn't go to your aid.
No, you only did what you were supposed to. Don't worry about it.
Thank you for saying that... I plan on making up for it with my work here.

B Support

Is something wrong, Percival?
That village we just passed... It was ruined.
...Yes, it was.
Probably most areas of this continent look like that due to the war.
We must put an end to this we can help those who cannot defend themselves.

A Support

Cecilia? You look troubled.
Percival... I was just wondering what would become of Etruria after this.
Just what you would worry about. ...But I think there is only one answer to that question.
Etruria will regain its former glory. It will become even more prosperous than ever before.
...Do you think so?
Of course. We will make it happen with our own hands.
You mustn't lose hope, Cecilia. If the Etrurian Generals give up, then who would rebuild our country?
Yes... You're right, Percival.


C Support

Look out!
I-I-I'm terribly sorry! I was aiming for an enemy, but the arrow flew over here... Oh, what am I going to do? Are you hurt?
I'm fine, it didn't even touch me.
I, I... I'm so sorry!
There is no need to apologize. Things like this often happen on the battlefield.
Even if I did get hit your arrow, it would partly be my responsibility for not paying attention to my surroundings.
Never let your mind wander in battle. That is a rule. So don't be too upset about it. All right?
...Yes, I understand. I'm probably being more of a nuisance sitting here mulling over it. I'll try harder next time!

B Support

Sigh... That last shot was just lucky... I have to practice more. Perhaps I should aim more like this... Oh! General Percival!
Training? Very good.
Y-Yes, thank you! I sometimes make mistakes like I did last time, so I thought I should train myself more so I wouldn't be a hindrance to everyone else...
Yes... Dorothy, I've been thinking... You should relax a little more when you shoot.
Huh...? You were watching how I fight!?
I always try to watch and understand how my comrades fight. I was looking for the chance to tell you this, but I can see that you tend to panic when you fight.
I see... Yes, that's true. I tend to get scared in an actual battle, and I get nervous and can't move like I normally do...
...Archers don't have to come out front, they stay back and cover for us. You must tell yourself that there is nothing to be afraid of. We will defend the front lines.
...Yes! I will!

A Support

...Yes! Yes, that was great!
You seemed to have improved, Dorothy.
General Percival! I'm trying to relax when I shoot, as you said. I think I'm getting a little better at it.
You originally seemed to have talent with the bow. It was just a matter of getting your confidence together, and now that you have, you'll be improving more and more fron now on.
I can relax if I think that the others are defending the front lines for me... It seems that I can sometimes feel safe even on the battlefield.
Ah, but that is the same for us up front as well. We would not be able to charge in like we do if we didn't have adequate support from the back lines.
...Am I being of use to you too, General Percival?
Yes, you're helping me out a great deal. I shall be looking forward to your support in future battles.


C Support

General Percival! It is good to see you again.
Klein. It is good to see you are well. It seems that you've gotten quite used to your position now.
Yes. Although, I'm still one of the least experienced and weakest generals...
Well, from the way I see it, those working under you are the luckier ones.
I hope so, too, General Percival.
...How have you been doing?
What do you think about this army?
Well... Frankly, I feel more at home here than in the Etrurian army. Perhaps it is because of General Roy's personality...
...I see.
How do you feel, General Percival?
I can't say I feel completely comfortable here.
You can't?
It is probably because what I seek from an army doesn't exist here. can't get used to this army?
...No, it's a little different from that. It is just that I am and will always be an Etrurian knight. I am unable to bend my standards so easily.

B Support

...How do you feel about the coup d'etat in Etruria?
...I understand that Bern was doing things behind the scenes, but still... I never would have imagined that the Etrurian Court would divide into two hostile sides so easily. To tell the truth, I'm still not over it. I... I never thought that there would be so many people who would give in to greed so easily...
Etruria had not known war for a very long time. Thus, blinded by peace, we didn't notice the men scheming evil deeds.
Yes... A conflict would have broken out even without Bern's help.
Once this war is over, I will return and devote my life to rebuild Etruria.
Of course, General Percival. I am prepared to give my life to that cause as well.
Klein, I want you to seek a different path.
Once I return to Etruria, I plan to dismiss all but those few whom I can put absolute trust in to be loyal to king and country. I will do anything to maintain mutual trust among the king's servants.
General Percival... Don't be ridiculous!
...! Klein...
...Please, relax a little. With your ability, you won't have to go to such extreme measures. I was holding this in because we are at war, but...I'll say it now. I miss the days when I could look up to you as an older brother...the days when we were more relaxed, and sometimes even laughed it up together...
Once this war ends, let us return and celebrate the prosperity of the new Kingdom of Etruria laughter.

A Support

General Percival?
Klein. Is something wrong?
No, I just saw you, so...
I see.
You know, I was thinking... Before the coup d'etat, we were never working together under the same mission. But now, here we are, fighting alongside each other, after we have both left the Etrurian military and are under General Roy's command.
Hm, yes... Fate can work in strange ways.
Yes. Oh, on a different topic... Have your favorite foods changed over the recent years?
...? ...No. Why?
It's just that the cook was a little troubled. He said that since you are expressionless no matter what you eat, he never knows what to give you.
Expressionless? ...Do you think so?
Yes, very much so, General Percival. Even when you're having wine, your expression stays the same no matter how much you drink. If you stop making expressions, you'll forget how.
Expressions are not things that can be forgotten.
I wouldn't be so sure about that with you, General Percival.
...Well, well. Getting fresh, are we?
Haha... I guess it looks like I need not worry.
