  • Raphael: Hngh... Hngh... Hngh... Ungh... Hngh... Hngh... Phew... Oh, Professor! Are you here to train?
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: I came to train.
    • Choice 2: I came to check on you.
  • Raphael:
    • Choice 1 response: I knew it! Gotta train daily.
    • Choice 2 response: You should join me. Training is more important than worrying about me.
  • Raphael: Legs, back, chest, arms, abs. Gotta work 'em all, right? I just finished training and I feel great. Check me out! Are my muscles bulging?
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: I guess so?
    • Choice 2: I'm not sure about that.
  • Raphael: Another day of training and my muscles are ready to burst! Bulging muscles mean strength. I have to be strong if I want to be a proper knight. And I have to eat if I wanna keep training. Time to feast!
  • Byleth: Isn't studying also important for a knight?
  • Raphael: Ah, way to hit me where it hurts, Professor. I know I'd be in big trouble if I don't train my brain too. Anyone who can't get tactics, can't be a proper knight. It's just... I'm no good at remembering that kind of stuff. And train my brain instead of my body makes me sleepy! What if I start training twice as hard? Then I should only have to study half as much, right?
  • Byleth: You'll never be a proper knight if you don't study.
  • Raphael: You really think so? I can't let that happen! I guess I have no choice. I'll prove I can do it! Wish me luck, Professor! For my training and for my studies!

  • Raphael: Great timing, Professor! I was just going to come find you.
  • Byleth: ...
  • Raphael: Are you busy? I have a question about formations. I don't understand them at all. Are the speed of battle and the terrain connected somehow? There's too much to memorize!
  • Byleth: You don't have to remember everything.
  • Raphael: I don't? Then what do I have to know? I think I understand the basics. To start, you just...
  • (Fade to black.)
  • Raphael: Ah! OK. I think I've got it! Thanks for the help, Professor! Brains and brawn, you've really got it all. With your help, I should have no trouble becoming a proper knight!
  • Byleth: Why do you want to be a knight?
  • Raphael: Huh? Didn't I tell you? My parents were merchants of the Alliance. They died in an an accident. That's why it's up to me to look after my little sis. I'm not great with bookkeeping, so I didn't think I'd make a good merchant. I talked to Grandpa and he suggested I become a knight. So I sold all our valuables and used the money to pay my way into the academy. My sis won't survive if I get kicked out, so I can't give up now!
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Had you no other options?
    • Choice 2: Did you consider becoming a mercenary?
  • Raphael: I might have tried being a mercenary if I didn't have my little sis to look after. I probably shouldn't say this, but being a mercenary does sound like an easier life. Mercenaries have no responsibilities, and no one else to worry about. But someone's gotta take care of my little sis, so that's out of the question. Serving as a knight in a noble house is more secure, and you don't have to worry about dying...unless there's a war. My sis has been through so much. I don't want her to have to worry about me. Hey. Do you have any siblings, Professor?
  • Byleth: No.
  • Raphael: Then you probably think I'm missing out on my freedom, having to support her, huh? But, working hard for my sister isn't too bad. Call it a burden, call it a challenge. If it makes my sister happy, I'm happy too! You should ask your father to have some more kids! Anyway, that's why I've got to become a proper knight!

  • Raphael: Hey, Professor! I think you've been working too much lately. The battle's gonna keep going with or without you, but you're the one doing the most out there! It's real impressive how you can focus on giving orders and fighting! I don't think I could do both in the same battle. I see you running all over the place, even after the battle is over. I just don't want you to wear yourself out.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: I'll be OK.
    • Choice 2: Maybe I am tired.
  • Raphael:
    • Choice 1 response: You gotta take a break when you can. Even when you're feeling fine, it can suddenly hit you!
    • Choice 2 response: Oh yeah? As soon as you say you're fine, that's when it hits you.
  • Raphael: No offense, Professor, but don't you think some folks might be taking advantage of you? Claude keeps asking you to do things, but you never say no. Like when you gave that speech to the troops. That didn't seem like something you wanted to do. I know you gotta follow orders on the battlefield, but you should have to do things off the battlefield if you don't wanna.
  • Byleth: You've done things you don't want to do.
  • Raphael: What do you mean? Like studying? Sure it's not my favorite thing in the world, but that was to keep my little sis fed. I had good reason for it.
  • Byleth: It's the same for me.
  • Raphael: The same, huh? I think I get what you mean. You do things you don't wanna do for the sake of everyone else. That's real noble of you, Professor. I guess I can't get in your way if you're doing it for the right reason. OK, then. I'm gonna keep trying to do my best, but now I'm gonna do it for you. My little sis is important to me, but you're real important too. I always work hard for the people who matter to me. And having more of them in my life just means I gotta work even harder! What do you think?
  • Byleth: I think you're important to me too, Raphael.
  • Raphael: Really?! I wasn't expecting you to say that! You're gonna make me blush! We gotta keep working hard together then. At least until this war's over. I'll work hard to make sure you don't collapse from exhaustion! You've got nothing to worry about, Professor. I've been training nonstop. I got your back, no matter what!

  • Raphael: Oh. Professor. Are you sure it's OK for you to be here?
  • (Byleth nods.)
  • Raphael: You're probably right. Even you need a break every once in a while! The war's finally over, but they're still putting you to work, huh? I betcha it's going to get pretty busy from here on out.
  • Byleth:
    • Choice 1: Probably.
    • Choice 2: Who knows.
  • Raphael: Fódlan sure has changed a lot since you were our professor. Some places that lost their leaders...and other ones got wrecked from all the fighting. You gotta decide what to do about the church now too, huh?
  • Byleth: You have a good grasp of the situation.
  • Raphael: Hahaha! Even I understand that much! I'd never become a great knight if I didn't!
  • Byleth: You still want to become a knight?
  • Raphael: You bet I do! That's what I've been working toward all this time! I'm not sure you heard, but apparently the battles I fought in made me famous! Folks started calling me "the Beast of Leicester." Can you believe that? People calling me a Beast! I was offended at first, but my little sis said it made me sound tough. She must be right, 'cause I've had people asking me to work for them nonstop! I've made my decision though. I know whose knight I wanna be. Speaking of... I got this for you. Will you accept it?
  • Byleth: ...
  • Raphael: Ma...m-m-ma-- Marry me and let me be your knight! Please! Remember how I told you how important you are to me? Well, I wanna be with you and stay by your side! I thought maybe if we got married, then we could always be together.
  • Byleth: What about your sister?
  • Raphael: It's awfully nice of you to worry about her, but she'll be fine. I barely took my eye off her and she grew up into an adult! It won't be easy, but I want her to do whatever's gonna make her happy. I'll still keep an eye on her, but she'll be off on her own soon. I guess what I'm saying is, don't worry about her. She'll be OK. I'm more worried about you! You gotta rebuild this world from scratch! That's a whole lotta weight for one person to carry. Enough to crush you. So, will you let me help you? It's a heavy load, but I wanna carry it with you. What do you say? Will you let me be your knight?
  • Byleth: I will. I love you, Raphael.
  • Raphael: You...love me? Yes! Yes, yes, yes! From now on and for the rest of forever, this Beast is gonna stay by your side! But wait. I can't just be a physically strong Beast. I gotta have a strong mind too! Whatever you need, I'll work as hard as I can! As hard as anyone! I'll keep training to make sure you can count on me. And...I'll love you. Forever and ever. And ever!

With Dimitri Edit

C Support Edit

  • Raphael: Hey, Dimitri! I heard about what you did!
  • Dimitri: Hm? What are you talking about, Raphael?
  • Raphael: Some folks are saying you lifted a whole wagon on your own, and you made it look easy!
  • Dimitri: Ah. I suppose I do recall something like that. I happened across a toppled wagon, you see. Those people needed my aid, so I aided them. But what of it?
  • Raphael: You gotta teach me your training secrets! I wanna build muscles like that!
  • Dimitri: You want...my training secrets, so you can build more muscle? I'm sorry, but...I honestly don't think I can offer anything that would help you. The royal family has always been blessed with immense strength. I imagine it's largely due to our blood, and perhaps our Crests.
  • Raphael: Oh, c'mon! You don't have to keep your secrets from me!
  • Dimitri: As I said, I really wish I could help, but... Look, logistics aside, why are you so interested in my strength to begin with?
  • Raphael: I wanna be really strong like you. I don't just wanna, I gotta! I've had to provide for my little sis ever since our parents died. If I wanna do that, I gotta get strong so I can become a knight!
  • Dimitri: I see. In that case, I suppose I could try to help you. Though I meant it when I said I'm not sure I have much to offer.
  • Raphael: Really?! Aw, yeah!
  • Dimitri: I'm no expert on the topic of building muscle... However, for greater strength, you could try devoting more time to spear and sword training. You probably already know that, eh? Of course you do. Let's see... As a child, I was forced to train by running through the mountains all night in heavy armor!
  • Raphael: You had to run all night in heavy armor? That sounds tough! What else did you do?
  • Dimitri: Aside from that... I trained by lifting large boulders, or carrying multiple barrels filled with rocks.
  • Raphael: Got it! I'm gonna give that a try right now!
  • Dimitri: Wait a moment! You don't want to push yourself too hard too quickly. You'll damage yourself if you're not careful.
  • Raphael: You shouldn't worry so much. I know my limits! My muscles are gonna be so big after this!
  • Dimitri: Perhaps... I should not have told him all that.

B Support Edit

  • Raphael: Urgh... Dimitri...
  • Dimitri: Raphael! What's the matter? You look awfully pale.
  • Raphael: I think... I think... I think I'm gonna die!
  • Dimitri: What in the world happened?
  • Raphael: My whole body... It's stinging and aching... I've never felt anything like it! I feel weak all over. I don't have the energy to do anything. This has never happened to me before!
  • Dimitri: Well, what are you waiting for? Get yourself to the infirmary! If you can't walk, I'll carry you there. This could be very serious!
  • Raphael: Thing is, I already tried going there, but I didn't see Manuela or the monks... / Thing is, I already tried going there, but I didn't see any of the monks who are usually around... Dimitri, listen. If anything happens to me, I need you to take care of my little sis...
  • Dimitri: Steady yourself, Raphael. Protecting your sister is a task that will fall to you alone. Is that not why you wish to become a knight?
  • Raphael: At this rate I won't even be able to fight alongside everyone else! / At this rate I won't even be able to fight alongside everyone else!

I'm gonna be completely useless! Ugh, of course this happens after I spend all night training.

  • Dimitri: Wait... You were training all night? Raphael... Tell me exactly what sort of training you did last night.
  • Raphael: Well, first I ran all across the mountains while carrying a gigantic boulder. Then I found a big log and lifted it a few hundred times. After that, I ran 50 laps around Garreg Mach wearing heavy armor. Then I tied a rope to a barrel full of rocks and swung it around for a while.
  • Dimitri: Right. I believe I get the picture. And is this something you've been doing every night recently?
  • Raphael: I train every day, but yesterday I decided to try out some new techniques. I took the ideas you gave me and used them to come up with a whole new regimen.
  • Dimitri: I see. Raphael, listen to me very carefully. Your ailment...is ordinary muscle pain.
  • Raphael: Muscle...pain? I don't understand.
  • Dimitri: After a training session like that, even my muscles would probably be aching. Didn't I tell you not to push yourself too hard?
  • Raphael: Wait, wait, wait. If this is muscle pain, does that mean I hurt my muscles?
  • Dimitri: Well, you caused them to hurt, sure, but that doesn't mean...
  • Raphael: I can't believe I was so mean to my muscles! I need to make it up to them!
  • Raphael: I gotta go eat some food so my muscles can get the nutrition they need! And I can't waste any more time talking about it!
  • Dimitri: Hold on! What happened to your muscle pain? And if you eat too much, you'll give yourself a stomachache! Uh oh... He's headed straight for the stairs. I thought he could hardly walk with his muscles in that state...
  • Raphael: Aaghh! My muscles!
  • Dimitri: Let this be a lessen to you, Raphael... There are times when even your muscles can betray you.

With Claude Edit

C Support Edit

  • Raphael: Hrgh... Ughh... Nghh... There we go. Time for a break!
  • Claude: Hey, Raphael. That's quite a load you've got there.
  • Raphael: It was my turn to do the shopping again, but I might have overdone it.
  • Claude: Aren't those trips usually for food supplies? Why did you pick up a bunch of spears and gauntlets as well?
  • Raphael: I was passing by the smithy and the old man called me over. He said he was finished repairing the training weapons, so I grabbed them since I was already there.
  • Claude: I see. And those books?
  • Raphael: I had just left the smithy when I ran into a merchant I recognized. He said he had some books that he brought for the library, so I took them off his hands.
  • Claude: Right. And that desk?
  • Raphael: Oh, this? Can you believe someone threw this away? It only needs a little work and it'll be good as new! Someone around here was just saying that they needed a desk.
  • Claude: Of course. Now, this is just a friendly observation, but I see surprisingly little of the food supplies we actually need.
  • Raphael: Haha. Well, I, uh, worked up an appetite from carrying all of this stuff, so, uh... I had a snack on my way back.
  • Claude: Raphael... I appreciate the thought, but you can't get so carried away with helping out like that. You helped us all right out of dinner. And now that I've seen your struggle, I have no choice but to join in this vicious cycle of charity. Here, I'll lend you a hand.
  • Raphael: All of this stuff is pretty heavy. Are you sure you can handle it?
  • Claude: You insult me! And no, I can't. I'll only carry the books and offer my support as you handle the rest.

B Support Edit

  • Raphael: Ungh... Rrgh... Nrgh... Phew! Time to rest.
  • Claude: Hey, Raphael. This scene... why is it oddly familiar?
  • Raphael: Heh, it's almost like this stuff is drawn to me whenever I'm in town! I'm just happy I can use my muscles to help out around here.
  • Claude: But isn't your goal to become a knight? Running errands isn't exactly a knight's job.
  • Raphael: I heard that proper knights always help those in need. Isn't that right?
  • Claude: Well, you're not wrong, but I think most people would consider that only a small part of a knight's duty. A knight's main function is to fight and defend, don't you think? That said, I'll agree that helping anyone and everyone who needs it makes you a remarkably virtuous person, which is even better.
  • Raphael: If someone virtuous becomes a knight, they'll be a virtuous knight, right? That's about as proper as you can get!
  • Claude: I... Yes? I suppose so? I, for one, would certainly look for virtue in any knight that I recruited.
  • Raphael: So, you're saying I'm the type of knight you'd want to hire for House Riegan?
  • Claude: Absolutely. If I somehow actually manage to become the head of my house, that is. I can't see into the future, but you have my word that I'll do all I can to help make your dream a reality. That is, if you're actually able to let somebody help you out, rather than helping out the whole world by yourself.
  • Raphael: I'm not gonna stop helping others, but you can do me all the favors you want. All this talk of being proper is making me hungry. For my first favor, why don't you bring me a snack?

With Caspar Edit

C Support Edit

  • Caspar: Hey, Raphael. You here to train?
  • Raphael: Hey! Caspar! You work your muscles almost as much as I do.
  • Caspar: Of Course! Everyone knows that if you skip a day, you'll lose three days of work.
  • Raphael: Ain't that the truth. Let's get to it then!
  • Caspar: That's probably... enough for today.
  • Raphael: Ughh... Ughh... You might be right. I'm exhausted!
  • Caspar: You know... I really envy you, Raphael... You're huge!
  • Raphael: I know I'm big. Everyone knows that. What are you talking about?
  • Caspar: I'm not very big, but I've always wanted to be. That's why I train so much. I've grown a bit in the last five years, but I'm still not even close to you. I just don't know how to bulk up.
  • Raphael: is that all? I know how to fix that!
  • Caspar: Really? You gotta show me!
  • Raphael: Follow me!
  • Caspar: Huh? You just led me to the dining hall.
  • Raphael: That's right. Now sit down and eat up!
  • Caspar: We're just gonna eat?
  • Raphael: Yup. Eating's the best way to get bigger! You gotta eat, and you gotta train. Do 'em both enough and you're sure to grow.
  • Caspar: I always thought I was a pretty big eater, but maybe I wasn't eating enough? Or not often enough?
  • Raphael: Probably both. Look at my plate compared to yours. Now this is a meal!
  • Caspar; Whoa! Your plate looks like a mountain! If that's what I gotta so, then I'm gonna eat until I can't anymore. I'll eat until there's no food left!
  • Raphael: That's the spirit! C'mon! Let's go clear out the pantry.
  • Caspar: Let's do it! I'm gonna eat till I can't move!

B Support Edit

  • Raphael: Caspar! Good to see you! You're looking a bit bigger lately!
  • Caspar: Yeah, Raphael. That's one way to put it.
  • Raphael: Is something wrong? I thought you wanted to get bigger. Have you been training?
  • Caspar: I haven't missed a day. The problem is that my body doesn't want to grow in the directions I want it to. I was hoping to get a little taller, but I seem to just be growing...wider. I don't think your methods are for me.
  • Raphael: Aww, that's too bad. I always thought that the secret to getting bigger was lots of eating and training! You know what? You shouldn't worry so much about how big or tall you are. You're great, no matter what size!
  • Caspar: What makes you say that?
  • Raphael: Well, let's see... You can run faster than me. And you're really agile, which I will never be. That's just about your legs though. your other movements are quick too! You can dodge good, and swing a sword pretty fast. Oh! And your...
  • Caspar: All right, Raphael. I think I see the problem now. I thought I envied the size of your body, but I was wrong. After hearing you say those nice things about me, I realized that I actually envy the size of your heart.
  • Raphael: Huh? I think it's normal size, but...
  • Caspar: That's right! I don't just need a bigger body, I need a bigger heart! Once I have a bigger heart, then maybe, just maybe, my body will start growing too!
  • Raphael: Yeah! Maybe...
  • Caspar: Now how do I increase the size of my heart? It didn't help with my body, but do you think eating will make my heart grow?
  • Raphael: I have no idea, but I'm always up for a meal.
  • Caspar: I really don't want to get any wider though... I'm so conflicted... I guess there's only one way to find out. It's like you always say, "when in doubt, go to the dining hall!"

  • Raphael: Raaww! Hrrnngghh! Hrraaggh! Yrraagh! Hyaaaggh - huh? What's that noise? Heh... Sounds like someone's having fun. Maybe it's coming from the greenhouse.
  • Bernadetta: That was really fun, Bernie. Good thing I found such an out-of-the-way spot to play. Only the pretty flowers heard me here. Isn't that right, little flower? You're the only one who heard, aren't you? What did you think?
  • Raphael: That was amazing!
  • Bernadetta: Ah! Why's your voice so deep?!
  • Raphael: What? I'm no flower.
  • Bernadetta: Oh no. Raphael, you heard it all, didn't you?
  • Raphael: I did! What kind of instrument was that? I could hear it all the way over at the training grounds. It was great. I didn't know you could play!
  • Bernadetta: All the way from the training grounds?! Ugh!
  • Raphael: That's right. Then I came here to tell you how good you sounded!
  • Bernadetta: Good? No. No, I'm onto you. First you flatter me, then you get me to perform on stage in front of everyone to humiliate me!
  • Raphael: Uhhh..no? But that's a great idea. Everyone should be able to hear your music!
  • Bernadetta: Ah! I knew it! Monster! I won't fall victim to your schemes!

  • Bernadetta: Calm down?! Sure, why shouldn't I? Nothing's more relaxing than being spied on! I just love it wh-when huge scary men lurk behind me with their insidious smiles and heinous schemes! Ugh! You just want to make me a laughing stock - ruin me in front of everyone. I know it!
  • Raphael: Please! Listen! I only came to hear you play. That's it. Promise. I'm not gonna make you perform in front of everyone else. I just wanted to hear you myself.
  • Bernadetta: J-just you? Nobody else? Really?
  • Raphael: Really. I kept trying to ask, but you always ran away.
  • Bernadetta: That doesn't mean you can just watch me creepily from the shadows, you know. That would scare anyone.
  • Raphael: You're right. I'm sorry. I just didn't know how else to get your attention. You get so scared. But it looks like I ended up scaring you anyway. I'll leave you alone, Bernadetta... I really just wish I could have heard you play.
  • He walks away.
  • Bernadetta: Raphael?

A Support 1 Edit

  • Bernadetta: There he is. OK, Bernie, you can do this.
  • Raphael: Oh! Bernadetta! Sorry, just passing through. Didn't mean to scare you again...
  • Bernadetta: No-no, it's all right. Actually, I came to talk to you. I owe you an apology. It's, um, long overdue.
  • Raphael: Huh? What do you have to apologize for?
  • Bernadetta: I'm hopelessly terrified of you, so every time I see you, I kind of lose my mind. But once you're gone and I get time to calm down, I realize I'm making a big deal out of nothing. I'm sorry I couldn't tell you before. I feel awful! I hope you can forgive me!
  • Raphael: Come on, now> It's all right. i wasn't really that bothered by it. Promise. I shoulda been more careful not to scare you. I'm a big guy, and my muscles can be intimidating.
  • Bernadetta: No! No, you did nothing wrong! It's all my fault.
  • Raphael: How about this? Let's say it's both our fault and call it even. But you know, I've been thinking... You really are scared of everything. Is there something we can do to fix that?
  • Bernadetta: You mean like a cure?
  • Raphael: Something like that. I think we can figure this out. Your biggest fear is talking to people, right? If that's the case, you need to change the way you think about talking! Right now you think it's bad so you're afraid to do it. I figure if you talk to more people, then you'll think talking is good! It might be hard to suddenly start talking to people though... You're gonna need to take it slow. Oh! I know! Start with me!
  • Bernadetta: W-with you? That'll be, umm...tough. Maybe, um... Maybe if you turn around? Face the other way?
  • Raphael: I guess...if that's what you need. (He turns around.) How's this? I bet if you get used to talking to me, your fears will go away in no time!
  • Bernadetta: You're, ah, still really intimidating. But OK. I'll give it a try...

A Support 2 Edit

  • Bernadetta: Hi, Raphael! Lovely weather today, isn't it?
  • Raphael: Sure is! Staring up at the sky on a clear day always reminds me of my hometown.
  • Bernadetta: What was it like there?
  • Raphael: Hmm...let's see... Well, it's a real calm and peaceful place. Big, clear skies too, just like this. It's full of friendly people and delicious food. Talking about it makes me want to go back.
  • Bernadetta: Yeah... It's a shame we're stuck fighting in this war.
  • Raphael: Right? I wonder what my little sis is up to. She's probably grown so much by now... I haven't seen her since I came back to Garreg Mach. She probably wouldn't even recognize me anymore.
  • Bernadetta: I'll bet she would! How could she possibly forget such a terrifying- Um... Such a terrific big brother? There's no way!
  • Raphael: You really think so? That's a relief. All this relief's making me hungry! Want to head to the dining hall?
  • Bernadetta: Oh! Um... Actually, we can eat here. I cooked something up for us today.
  • Raphael: Oh yeah? I won't say no to that!
  • Bernadetta: I heard you really like meat, so, um - here you go! It's my first time cooking something like this. I can at least guarantee it isn't poisoned!
  • Raphael: Meat? That's my favorite! I'd probably eat it even if it was poisoned! Om mmm mmm... Mmm? Mmm mmm...
  • Bernadetta: Is it, uh...good?
  • Raphael: Graaah! That was amazing!
  • Bernadetta: Really? You like it?
  • Raphael: So tender! So juicy! So full of flavor! It was practically falling off the bone! The flavor was so rich and sweet! I - Wait...how can meat be sweet?
  • Bernadetta: Is sweet bad? I thought it was pretty tasty, myself.
  • Raphael: No, no, no! It was delicious! I couldn't believe it! I'd eat more fruits and vegetables if they were this good! If all food tasted like this I...I just don't know what I'd do with myself!
  • Bernadetta: Well, if you like it, I wouldn't mind, um, making more. Whenever you want, really!
  • Raphael: Really?! That would be great! We gotta get this war over with so you can have more time to cook!
  • Bernadetta: You know, I'd actually like that.

With Ingrid Edit

C Support Edit

  • Raphael: Mmm...this meat is so good! I wish I could send some home to my little sis.
  • Ingrid: Raphael, what are you doing here?
  • Raphael: Oh! I was just enjoying some of this roast! Did you want a bite?
  • Ingrid: No, no. I meant what are you doing here? This isn't the dining hall.
  • Raphael: Hahaha! That's funny. Of course I know this isn't the dining hall!
  • Ingrid: You know that, and yet you're stuffing your face here, rather than where it's appropriate. You're not even seated!
  • Raphael: Is that the best way to eat? If you think so, let's sit down!
  • Ingrid: Argh! You're missing the point! At least use a plate!
  • Raphael: I don't have a plate with me, so there's nothing I can do about that now. But since when are you so proper, Ingrid?
  • Ingrid: I'm not proper at all! You're just downright crude. Have you no respect for yourself and your journey to knighthood? Knights must work from a very young age to be upstanding in all facets. You are making a mockery of all that we stand for! You-
  • Raphael: Slow down! I can't do all this listening while I'm trying to eat!
  • Ingrid: Disgusting! Now you've spilled gravy all over your shoes and your chin! You'd better wipe that up.
  • Raphael: Now you need everything to be neat and tidy? You're really particular.
  • Ingrid: This has nothing to do with me. It's what's expected of a knight!
  • Raphael: Wait. All I have to do is be neat and tidy and I can become a knight? Forget all that studying then, I'm just gonna work on being the neatest and tidiest one here!
  • Ingrid: I - Wait. Th-that is not what I said!
  • Raphael: Ugh. Really? You're probably right. I shouldn't bother with the neat and tidy stuff.
  • Ingrid: You are impossible!

B Support Edit

  • Raphael: Huh? Is that Ingrid? I'd better get outta here before she scolds me again. Actually...she looks kinda sad. Maybe I shouldn't run away...Hey! Ingrid! Why do you look so sad? Are you hungry or something?
  • Ingrid: Oh. It's you. No, I'm not hungry.
  • Raphael: You're not hungry...but you're sad anyway? I don't get it. Are you sick?
  • Ingrid: No.
  • Raphael: Then are you sure you're not hungry?
  • Ingrid: I just told you that wasn't it. It's nothing you can help with, anyway.
  • Raphael: Well, sometimes you gotta talk it out. That's what my grandpa says.
  • Ingrid: Yeah, I guess that's helpful sometimes. Are you willing to listen, then?
  • Raphael: Of course! Please, go ahead.
  • Ingrid: I've just received another letter from my father regarding a marriage arrangement with a noble family.
  • Raphael: I see. I see.
  • Ingrid: I am the only person in House Galatea capable of carrying on our family line...of passing on a Crest...
  • Raphael: Ahhh, I see. I see.
  • Ingrid: I've long understood that it would be expected of me to marry, of course.
  • Raphael: Hmmm...I see. I see.
  • Ingrid: Raphael, are you even listening?
  • Raphael: I'm right there with you, but-
  • Ingrid: Did you hear that ominous sound? Was that...thunder?
  • Raphael: Sorry. All that listening made me hungry! After hearing you out, I think you're probably just hungry too, and your troubles are sure to go away after a good meal!
  • Ingrid: I really am not hungry, but I can't say no to good food. All right, let's just eat, then. I can tell you about my struggles some other time, maybe.

A Support Edit

  • Ingrid: Eating? In the dining hall? You?!
  • Raphael: Whaddaya mean? The dining hall's where I do most of my eating.
  • Ingrid: If only the old version of you could hear you say that. It seems to me you've taken more care with your appearance of late too. For once, you aren't covered in gravy and oil from head to toe. I'm impressed!
  • Raphael: Of course not, Ingrid. A proper knight has to be neat and tidy.
  • Ingrid: All right, what have you done with Raphael?
  • Raphael: It's all thanks to you. You said I had to clean up if I wanted to be a knight, so I started being more careful. Do you think I have what it takes now?
  • Ingrid: You've certainly become more knightly than before. But there's plenty yet to do to become a proper knight. It's not as simple as eating where you're meant to and not being covered in gravy.
  • Raphael: Maybe I'd have a better chance if I just married you!
  • Ingrid: Uh... What does that have to do with anything?
  • Raphael: You're real cultured, that's all. You already taught me to be neat and tidy. I figure you could teach me lot more about being a proper knight if I always had you around!
  • Ingrid: That woul be quite the undertaking for me. Listen, Raphael...that's sweet of you. However, as I've said before, I've no intention to marry. Let's cast aside this talk of marriage and instead embolden one another to be the best knights we can be!
  • Raphael: You're right. Probably a better idea to just embolden each other instead. As long as I still get your help with becoming a proper knight!
  • Ingrid: While you're working to be more proper, I'll be working to strengthen myself, that I might become a greater knight than you!
  • Raphael: Huh? I don't know about that. I'm pretty tough. But I guess if anyone can beat me, it'd probably be you, Ingrid! Guaranteed!
  • Ingrid: Thank you, Raphael. That means a lot to me.

With Lorenz Edit

C Support Edit

  • Raphael: Mmm... Mmm... Ah! Meat is the best! Veggies and fish are great too, but, uh, there’s nothing quite like a good cut of meat.
  • Lorenz: May I join you?
  • Raphael: Hey, Lorenz! You here to eat? It looks like you barely grabbed anything!
  • Lorenz: Please, this amount would suffice for me. There’s no need to compare our portions.
  • Raphael: No wonder you’re so skinny! My little sis eats more than you! Come on, have some of mine. You need it more than I do.
  • Lorenz: You offer me half-eaten scraps?! The nerve! With manners like that, even a nobleman would be an absolute disgrace. Have you no dignity?
  • Raphael: You’re pretty touchy, huh? It’s probably because you’re hungry!
  • Lorenz: Raphael. Please. Do you mind? I cannot enjoy the simple pleasure of a meal in these conditions.
  • Raphael: Why can’t you enjoy your meal? You don’t like what’s on the menu?! You wait here. I’ll go to the kitchen and find something tastier for you!
  • Lorenz: That won’t be necessary. Please just let me eat. In peace. Alone.
  • Raphael: I don’t think you get it, Lorenz. Nothing goes with a meal better than good company! If leading the Alliance is your goal, you should really try eating with other people first.
  • Lorenz: I’m afraid I fail to see the connection between leadership and dining.
  • Raphael: If you want to be a leader, you have to know how to get along with different types of people, right? If you really want to get to know someone, all you have to do is share a meal with them.
  • Lorenz: Quite the contrary, unfortunately. It seems the more time I spend eating with you, the less likely we are to become friends.
  • Raphael: The more you eat with someone, the more you learn about them. Their likes, their dislikes. You know? You might get some of their food that way too! You can eat more and bulk up! Hahaha! All that talking made me hungry again. I’m gonna go get seconds!

(Raphael leaves)

  • Lorenz: Uh. What an absolute bother. But..I suppose he does have a point about observations of character at the dinner table.

B Support Edit

  • Raphael: Ah! So hungry! I gotta eat something!
  • Lorenz: Again, Raphael? Here. Perhaps this will suffice.
  • Raphael: Really? I can have this? But don't you need to eat after all that training?
  • Lorenz: We can't have you starving, can we? Your strength is a great asset. It would be a terrible loss if you fell faint in battle. Besides, no true noble can look upon the hungry with indifference.
  • Raphael: S-seriously? Wow! That's awful generous of you! Thank you so much!
  • Lorenz: You're welcome. But listen while you eat. I believe it would benefit you to pay more attention in the way you carry yourself in the company of your betters. It is the duty of the nobility to protect the commonfolk. And, in return, the commoner is expected to show deference and respect. Naturally, I understand that there is a certain tendency toward familiarity because we are classmates. However...
  • Raphael: Urmm... Mmm... Mmm... Ahh... That was tasty!
  • Lorenz: Raphael. Did you hear a word I said?
  • Raphael: Oh, hey! I sent my little sis some of that fancy meat you gave me a while back. She wrote back to say that it was tasty and to thank you. So, thanks!
  • Lorenz: That is excellent news. I'm pleased to hear that you both enjoyed it. But there's no need for you to thank me. It was actually a gesture of gratitude in the other direction. From me to you. Thanks to the wisdom of your words, I have begun to consider my approach to dining in a completely new way. Mealtime has proven to be ideal for the study of character. It is a tool I intend to make great use of as the leader of the Alliance.
  • Raphael: Yup, it's just like I told you. Food tastes better when you eat with good company!
  • Lorenz: That's not...quite what I meant. No matter. You are satisfied, I trust?
  • Raphael: I could probably keep eating, but I'm ready to train. All right! Time to get back to it so I can protect my buddy Lorenz.
  • Lorenz: I've not quite gotten through to you, have I? It is not the duty of a commoner to protect a noble. That is fundamentally against the order of society.
  • Raphael: But if you hadn't given me food just now, I couldn't survive on the battlefield because I'd be too weak to train! Who'd take care of my little sis if I wasn't around? She'd probably end up starving to death as well! In a way, by feeding me you're protecting her too!
  • Lorenz: It was only a little food. There's no need to get carried away.
  • Raphael: You're a real decent noble, you know that? Worrying so much about my sister and all. All I gotta do is protect you, then you protect everyone else, right?
  • Lorenz: I'm...not certain your logic is sound, but your strength is undeniable. Very well. Do as you like. Dining certainly is a window to the soul. Eating with you has helped me to see that I've misjudged you. You are not some gluttonous simpleton. You are grateful for the protection the nobility offers, and eager to emulate our example.

With Ignatz Edit

C Support Edit

  • Raphael: Yes! Time for food! Hey, Ignatz! Is this seat taken?
  • Ignatz: Oh. Hey, Raphael... I'm done eating, so you can sit here if you like!
  • Raphael: Really? But there's still food on your plate.
  • Ignatz: Ah, it's fine, I'm not that hungry. Anyway, I guess I'll be heading off!
  • Raphael: Oh. OK.

Scene transition

  • Raphael: Hey, Ignatz! Wanna train with me?
  • Ignatz: Uh... Oh my! That equipment's looking rusty! Let me fetch some oil.
  • Raphael: What's the matter? It always looks like that! Come on, we'll take care of it later.
  • Ignatz: No, you have to do it as soon as you notice. There's oil in the warehouse. I'll be right back!

Scene transition

  • Raphael: Hey, Ignatz!
  • Ignatz: Uh, hello, Raphael!
  • Raphael: Are you busy? I need to talk to you.
  • Ignatz: No, uh, that's... Oh, almost forgot, it's time to return this book to the library! I'll just...
  • Raphael: Hey, hey, hey! Hold up! Are you seriously gonna keep running away from me?
  • Ignatz: What? No! I'm not... running.
  • Raphael: yes, you are! Every time I try to talk to you, you make up some excuse and run! What's going on? You were a lot friendlier to me when we were kids. You were always so excited to show me all the neat stuff you had whenever I came to visit. We'd play hide-and-seek with my little sis, draw pictures and do other fun stuff too! Remember all that?
  • Ignatz: Things... can't be the way they were. It's regrettable, but it's the truth.
  • Raphael: Regrettable? What's there to regret?
  • Ignatz: I mean, you know... what happened to your parents. My parents are the reason your parents died.
  • Raphael: What're you talking about? My parents died in an accident while traveling for work.
  • Ignatz: Maybe so, but they were taking over for mine because they had other business that day and couldn't go themselves. So, they recommended yours to fill in for them.
  • Raphael: Huh... I didn't know that. But what does that have to do with our friendship?
  • Ignatz: No, but see, I...
  • Raphael: Oh, I see. But we're done talking about this. You gotta stop beating yourself up over it. It was an accident.

Raphael leaves

  • Ignatz: He's just putting on a brave face. No one is that forgiving...

  • Raphael: Hey, Lysithea. Your forehead’s all wrinkled. You look tense. Is something wrong? You know you can tell your Big Bro Raph—I mean you know you can tell me anything, right?
  • Lysithea: Raphael, while I appreciate your offer, I’m not so sure you’ll be much help here.
  • Raphael: What does that mean? Oh, are you researching something complicated? In that case, yeah, you’re probably right. Is there something else I can help you with? I’m really good at other things. Like training!
  • Lysithea: I have absolutely zero interest in such things.
  • Raphael: I have an idea! Do you wanna get real good at playing tag? I could teach you!
  • Lysithea: ...
  • Raphael: There’s a trick to it that most people don’t know. Like, to not get tagged and stuff. Let me show you!
  • Lysithea: ...
  • Raphael: It’s too sunny out to spend all day inside studying! C’mon, Big Bro’s gonna take you outsi—
  • Lysithea: Shut up! Shut up! Shut up! Can’t you see I’m busy?! Go bother someone else! What nerve you have, too, calling yourself “Big Bro!” Like I’m your little sister or some nonsense. Just cut the act.
  • Raphael: Uhhh. Did I really say that out loud?
  • Lysithea: Anyway, my grades are miles better than yours. If you want to play the part of “big brother,” you’d probably benefit from studying way, way more.
  • Raphael: Like I said, I’m really good at other things, just not classroom learning...
  • Lysithea: I can’t stand all the excuses. Clearly you’re the little kid here. You got all that? Now, don’t bother me again. Understood? Bye.

  • Raphael: Lysithea? Oh wow. Look at the mess you made.
  • Lysithea: Thank you for the assistance. I can take it from here.
  • Raphael: Were you planning on carrying this much weight on your own?! Don't be ridiculous! You should've at least asked for help!
  • Lysithea: They're all books I need for my studies, and it's my own responsibility. No need to involve others.
  • Raphael: I'm happy to help you carry some of them. How about half? That's fair, right?
  • Lysithea: No, really. I have this. I am not incapable— and I'm not a child.
  • Raphael: Hahaha! As smart as you are, you sure are a silly person. I'm so tough! I'm gonna stand my ground! I don't need help from anyone! And when things don't go my way, I'm gonna act all sad and moody!
  • Lysithea: You... are remarkably talented at channeling me...
  • Raphael: Huh? Oh, no! Sorry! I was imitating my little sister. Her name's Maya. She's way smart, but she can be pretty stubborn. You remind me of her. What I mean to say is that I want to help, so swallow your pride and ask.
  • Lysithea: Ugh.
  • Raphael: I'll be carrying this stack of books now. Got a problem with that?
  • Lysithea: Yeah, yeah. You seem obstinately determined to go against my wishes.
  • Raphael: All right! Is this a good spot to drop 'em?

  • Marianne: I-I’m done eating now. I have to go.
  • Raphael: Huh? You’re already done eating? But there’s still food on your plate! Hey! Marianne! Huh. Maybe she’s not feeling well. I should probably go check on her later.

(Scene Transition)

  • Marianne: Oh, is that so? I’m so happy you found all of that food! A little grey starling told me that you can find berries if you fly out towards the mountains.
  • Raphael: Oh! I found Marianne! I didn’t know she spent her time here. It sounds like she’s talking to someone...
  • Marianne: What‘s that? You want to try some nectar from the flowers in the greenhouse? That might be tricky. I guess you could try it if I’m already there, otherwise you might get locked in.
  • Raphael: Hey, Marianne! Who’re you talking to?
  • Marianne: Eeek!
  • Raphael: Huh? Oh, the birdie flew off...
  • Marianne: Y-yes, it looks like he has. What are you doing here, Raphael?

  • Marianne: Ah, um... yes.
  • Raphael: That’s incredible! This place is full of interesting folks, but I didn’t think anyone spoke birdie!
  • Marianne: No, that’s not it. This bird just happened to be... speaking human.

Marianne leaves

  • Raphael: Amazing! I hope I get to meet a bird who speaks human one day.

B Support Edit

  • Marianne: Is that... Raphael?
  • Raphael: Yeah, yeah. I get it, but you can't be so picky. You need some meat in your diet! I don't know if you can eat human food, but bug meat might be good for you. That's right, you need to eat plenty of bug meat if you want to get big and strong like me! No more sweets for you!
  • Marianne: What?! He's talking to a bird!
  • Raphael: Huh? Is someone there?
  • Marianne: Um.
  • Raphael: Oh! Marianne! You're right on time! This little birdie was telling me that he misses you and — Ah, oh! Aww. It flew off.
  • Marianne: It appears so.
  • Raphael: Why do you think birds fly away when there's more than one person around? Birds never seem to stay put unless I'm alone.
  • Marianne: Birds are very cautious creatures. They tend to fly away when they're startled.
  • Raphael: You mean they're afraid of loud noises?! Oops! That was probably too loud for the birds. C'mon Raphael. Keep it down. How's this? Do you think we'd be able to talk to the birds together like this? I still haven't met a bird that can speak human. I was hoping you could introduce me.
  • Marianne: Huh? I thought you were just talking to one?
  • Raphael: I was mostly talking at him, not to him. He just said "chirp chirp" and stuff like that. I had no idea what he was talking about. I don't think he understood me either.
  • Marianne: Huh...
  • Raphael: Marianne, you always know which birds understand what you're saying, right? Next time you find a bird who understands you, I hope you let me know so I can join the conversation!

  • Raphael: Food?! I got it!
  • Marianne: I completely understand. I have seen more people and birds foraging for berries lately. It would be ideal if those berries were growing in another forest nearby. Then you wouldn't have to—
  • Raphael: Are you hungry, Mr. Bird? I got just what you need!
  • Marianne: Are those... bugs?! Yuck!
  • Raphael: Look at him go! He's loving it! He's gonna get so big and strong after this!
  • Marianne: That was... disgusting. But how did you know he was hungry?
  • Raphael: I could tell by looking at him. He looked hungry and weak. More importantly, I saw what you did! That bird wasn't speaking human, so you gotta understand birdese! I knew it!
  • Marianne: Oh. About that. I'm sorry, Raphael, but I need to tell you the truth. I can sort of understand what animals are thinking when I look at them, but I can't speak to them. I'm sorry for leading you on.
  • Raphael: Oh... I see. What about me, then? Can you tell what I'm thinking when you look at me?
  • Marianne: I, um. Uh... no, Raphael. I can't.
  • Raphael: Well, of course not. You're not even looking at me! You gotta look at my eyes!
  • Marianne: Ah! Nope, still can't do it!
  • Raphael: I guess I just gotta tell you. I'm thinking it would be nice if you talked to me the way you talk to animals.
  • Marianne: What do you mean?
  • Raphael: Whenever you talk to animals, you seem happy and friendly! I just wish you'd talk to me like that too.
  • Marianne: I'm so sorry, Raphael. I didn't know, I—

  • Raphael: Huh? Is something wrong, Hilda?
  • Hilda: That necklace! It has a certain, ah, rustic charm?
  • Raphael: You’re right, it really does! Want me to make you one while I’m at it?
  • Hilda: Oh no! I wouldn’t want to trouble you. Besides, I think it would look better on you than me.
  • Raphael: It would definitely look good on me, but this one’s actually a birthday present for my little sis.
  • Hilda: For your sister?! I mean, ah... Don't you think she might like something more feminine? Something cute!
  • Raphael: Something cute? What’s wrong with something tough and rugged? This necklace is gonna have tusks and claws and stuff!
  • Hilda: But girls don’t usually go for tusks and claws and stuff. There should be flowers, or gems, or... Here, I can talk you through it. If you’re making a necklace for your sister... You might try putting a pretty little flower in a small crystal bottle, and sealing it with resin.
  • Raphael: If you say so. But where would I find a flower that was pretty enough?
  • Hilda: Oh, honestly, I don’t know much about flowers. But, hm, now that I think about it... I remember hearing about a splendid flower that only blooms near Fódlan’s Throat.
  • Raphael: Fódlan’s Throat? That’s on the eastern edge of the Alliance! I’d have to leave now if I’m going to make it back in time.
  • Hilda: Huh. Yeah, that does seem like a bit of a stretch. OK, let me think... Um, where’d he go? Well, no matter.

  • Hilda: Who is it?
  • Raphael: It's me! Raphael.
  • Hilda: Oh, Raphael! I'll get the door. What are you up to? Oh, whoa! What an enormous crate! And look what's in it. Crystal vials, shiny rocks...
  • Raphael: And I got this too!
  • Hilda: Oh what a splendid flower, and so fresh! Hey, wait a second, is that for your sister?
  • Raphael: Yeah, I finally got my hands on "something cute," just like you suggested.
  • Hilda: That's so nice! But... wait a second. Is this that flower from Fódlan's Throat?
  • Raphael: Of course! I had to run to make it back in time. It was a lot farther than I thought!
  • Hilda: You ran all that way? And while we're on the topic, aren't those Almyran crystals? Such fine carvings on them. They much be the work of a true artisan. It couldn't have been easy getting your hands on these.
  • Raphael: I figured I should follow your advice! You know more about what's stylish than I ever could.
  • Hilda: Well done. I'm sure your sister will be pleased. All that's left is to make that necklace!
  • Raphael: Yeah, about that... I don't know how to put it together. I spent so long the flowers have started wilting. There are only a few nice ones left.
  • Hilda: Huh. That's not good. I could try telling you how to make it, but you can't afford to lose any more flowers. Oh, all right. Looks like it's Hilda to the rescue! I'll take it from here.
  • Raphael: Seriously?! You're really gonna help me?
  • Hilda: Sure! I make myself things from time to time. And this is definitely easier than teaching you how. But you owe me for this! I expect to be paid back.
  • Raphael: Don't you worry about that! I'll find something really nice to pay you back with.
  • Hilda: It couldn't have been easy finding all these trinkets. He must really love his sister. Still, older brothers can be so dense.

  • Hilda: Hey Raphael! I finally finished that necklace for you. Here you go.
  • Raphael: Huh. Oh! Whoa! This is incredible! And so shiny! You're like an artist, Hilda! How'd you do this?
  • Hilda: Just like I told you. I put the flowers and the shiny rocks in a bottle, then poured in some resin to preserve everything. I thought the flowers you had were looking a little pathetic, so I added a few of my own. It was hard work, making sure the flowers and the stones were spread evenly, getting rid of the air bubbles...
  • Raphael: What's this? The part you hang around your neck? I thought you'd use the one I gave you...
  • Hilda: Oh, yeah, no. That's a cord I braided. I was going to use metal, but some people are allergic to metal, so I figured, better safe than sorry. Anyway, you didn't give me much to work with, and look what I pulled off! I'm a miracle worker.
  • Raphael: It's gorgeous! Beautiful! I've never seen anything like it! Thank you, Hilda! (Raphael begins sobbing)
  • Hilda: Whoa, hold up! What's with the blubbering?
  • Raphael(still crying) It's just... I bet my sister never got anything so pretty in her whole life! She's had to deal with so much because of me! I never got her anything this nice and cute before! She's gonna love it... and be so happy...
  • Hilda: Ah, um, OK. Yes, OK, that's enough. Come on, you're embarrassing me here... If you're really that happy, I'm glad I put some effort into something. For once.
  • Raphael: Don't-- Don't you always put effort into things?
  • Hilda: Hah! That's sweet of you, but no. I don't want to put in effort and then disappoint people. It's dispiriting, not to mention tiring.
  • Raphael: But what if they're not disappointed? Then they feel great, and you feel great too!
  • Hilda: Yeah, you have a point there. I guess I'm realizing that now. You know, thanks to you, I'm starting to see things from my brother's perspective.
  • Raphael: What do you mean? Do you have a big bro too?
  • Hilda: I do. I've always thought of him as an overprotective nuisance, but now I feel thankful. Looking at you, I couldn't help but think, "Eh, sometimes big brothers are OK."
  • Raphael: I didn't do anything special, though. It's natural for a big bro to look after his little sis. Oh! That reminds me! I still haven't found anything special enough to repay you for the necklace. I got an idea though. How about I help you make a tough looking necklace for your big bro?
  • Hilda: No need. I have a better idea. When the war's simmered down, why don't you and your sister come visit me?
  • Raphael: Really? That's it?
  • Hilda: Yeah. I want to make sure it suits her, and then I can adjust the cord, if I need to.
  • Raphael: Of course we'll come and visit! I told my sis all about you and she already wants to meet ya!
  • Hilda: Well, good. I look forward to it. In the meantime, hold me close to your heart.
  • Raphael: Uh... What?
  • Hilda: That's what the necklace would say, if it could talk! "Hold me close to your heart."

With Leonie Edit

C Support Edit

  • Raphael: Hey, Leonie! Are you just getting back? Whoa! What's with the bag? It's huge!
  • Leonie: Oh, this? Ha... I thought I'd get all my chores done at once. Guess it got a little out of hand. Sorry to be a pain, but could you help me out?
  • Raphael: I'm happy to help! Where'd you go to get all this stuff?
  • Leonie: Well, first it was just the cloth scraps from the tailor, then it was the used oil from a restaurant in town... After that, it was the books the scholars didn't know what to do with. I mean, that was just on the way.
  • Raphael: Whoa. It sounds like you did a lot of running around today.
  • Leonie: It wasn't so bad! I just figured it would save time if I did it all in one trip.
  • Raphael: You planned all that out? Impressive! What are you gonna do with all the stuff you got?
  • Leonie: The scraps will be good for dish cloths, and I can make soap from the oil. The books are just to help with my studies.
  • Raphael: You really can't let anything go to waste, can you?
  • Leonie: Nope. Can't stand the idea.
  • Raphael: Who knew you were so thoughtful! I mean, with actual thinking ahead. You're so generous to everyone and always making me food. I never knew how much thought you put into it!
  • Leonie: I cook to relax. And it's nice to see how enthusiastic you get about eating what I make. Whatever I give away is just the stuff that isn't useful to me. I pick up all sorts of things when I'm in town. Giving things like that to people who need them, or who actually use them, makes sure they aren't wasted.
  • Raphael: That makes sense. You gotta use up the stuff you've got, after all. Hey, do you think you're like this because you didn't have much growing up?
  • Leonie: I guess things were tough, now that you mention it. The folks in my village definitely aren't rich. My dad had to go through a lot of trouble to get the recommendations I needed to go to the academy. That doesn't mean I've grown up to be stingy. It just means I don't like to squander. Anyway, enough of that. It's in poor taste to go on about your own hardships. I've always got time for a meal with a friend. And it just so happens I've picked up some choice meat today. Why don't we share it?
  • Raphael: Now you're speaking my language!

B Support Edit

  • Leonie: Oh, it's Raphael. What's he doing at that desk?
  • Raphael: ...
  • Leonie: Hey! Are you studying? I thought you'd given up on it. Nice to see you're...
  • Raphael: Waaaugh!
  • Leonie: What the?!
  • Raphael: Oh! Leonie!
  • Leonie: What's wrong? Why are you crying?
  • Raphael: I-I just got a thank you letter from my little sister!
  • Leonie: Okay, maybe start from the beginning.
  • Raphael: My little sister lives with my grandpa now. She's had to deal with so much now that I've decided not to take over the family business.
  • Leonie: You might have to back up a bit more before this starts to makes sense to me.
  • Raphael: Our parents were merchants, but they died in an accident. We had some money saved at first, but... But Grandpa isn't healthy enough to work, and I'm not smart enough to work a job that requires... much thinking.
  • Leonie: That's really tough. Hard to make a fortune with just your strength, I'm sure.
  • Raphael: I had to sell all our valuables just to pay my way here so I could become a knight!
  • Leonie: Wow. That's a lot of pressure.
  • Raphael: My sister wants the best for me, but - she's the smart one in the family! She's the one that should be here! When I ask if she needs anything, she always says she's fine. She doesn't want to ask for anything 'cause she knows I'm having such a hard time here!
  • Leonie: She sounds like a great kid. So, what did the letter say?
  • Raphael: It said she's happy and thankful for all the study materials I sent her!
  • Leonie: That's good, right? Wait... Where did you find extras?
  • Raphael: I couldn't find any, so I just sent her mine! It's like you said, right? It's better to give them to someone who will use them instead of letting them go to waste!
  • Leonie: Um, don't take this the wrong way, but don't think you've still got things to learn? Well, I guess if it makes her happy, it's worth it. Maybe I can scrounge up something for her too.

A Support Edit

  • Leonie: Hey! Writing to your sister again?
  • Raphael: You bet! Gotta reply to these things as soon as they come in!
  • Leonie: You had one last week too. It's good to see you're both so good about staying in touch. It's especially important when there's a war going on.
  • Raphael: Yeah. Oh! That reminds me! My sister wrote to say how much she loved the painting supplies you sent!
  • Leonie: Good. I'm glad gathering those pigments paid off.
  • Raphael: You even made her a brush! I really appreciate you doing all that for her.
  • Leonie: I was fascinated with painting at that age. I was a pretty artistic kid, if you can believe it. Not a lot of time for it when you're hungry, though.
  • Raphael: Sounds like you had a pretty rough time growing up, too, huh?
  • Leonie: I guess so. We never thought of it that way. But it's true the children in my village don't usually get to choose their futures. Any one of us could have had the talent for artistic genius and never even noticed. I was one of the lucky ones. I only got to follow my passion thanks to my father and all the other folks. That's why, once I come into my own, the first thing I'll do is head back there and help the other kids.
  • Raphael: Oh, wow. It's like all the kids in your village are counting on you.
  • Leonie: Haha, no need to exaggerate it. Besides, it's not like I'm unique. You're working hard for your sister's future, aren't you?
  • Raphael: Yeah. It's like me and you are both carrying big weights. We should try sharing our weights with one another! You know, lighten both of our loads!
  • Leonie: Huh?
  • Raphael: If we share our problems, then we only gotta carry half the weight, right? It works out for everybody!
  • Leonie: It's... probably a good thing you didn't try to take on your family's business. If you take half of my burden, and I take half of yours, the total's still the same.
  • Raphael: Nah, that doesn't sound right. Everything's lighter when you don't gotta carry it alone.
  • Leonie: ...
  • Leonie: Haha, on second thought, you might be right. With that attitude, and the right partner to share the burden, maybe it is only half the weight.
  • Raphael: Now you're getting it! It's a waste of energy to struggle alone when there's someone who can help you!
  • Leonie: That's true. And I do hate waste, as you well know. So when it comes to working toward the future you're after, I won't fall short.
  • Raphael: Great! And you should never fall short on sharing a big meal with me too!
  • Leonie: Deal!

With Flayn Edit

C Support Edit

  • Flayn: yet another lovely day! On such a fine day as this, it would certainly be nice to go for a stroll with someone. I wonder if anyone is around... Oh, my... Such... awful noises! Who— or rather— what is making those sounds?
  • Raphael: Huh? Oh, hello, Flayn!
  • Flayn: Eep!

(Scene transition)

  • Flayn: M-my apologies. I feel a bit better now...
  • Raphael: Oh, you scared me! You nearly knocked me over with that scream!
  • Flayn: You startled me— appearing out of nowhere and making such sounds! What is it you are doing here, anyway?
  • Raphael: I'm just out here using logs to train!
  • Flayn: Wow! Are you really capable of lifting something so massive, Raphael?
  • Raphael: Of course! Wanna see? Hrrnnggh! Yrrrraaah! See? Told you I could do it.
  • Flayn: That was magnificent! Do you suppose I could give it a try as well?
  • Raphael: Hmm. It might be a bit too much for your tiny arms.
  • Flayn: Tiny or no, I want to be stronger. Do you have any tips for someone both willing and eager to grow?
  • Raphael: It's probably best to start by practicing your battle cry. If you let out a good shout, you'll feel even more powerful!
  • Flayn: Ah, you are a font of knowledge! Can you apply your wisdom and show me by example?
  • Raphael: No problem. Just follow my lead! Yaaah! Hrrrraaagh!
  • Flayn: Yah! Hragh!
  • Raphael: Ooorraaah! Nggghaaarh!
  • Flayn: Oorah! Ngharh!
  • Raphael: ...
  • Flayn: How did I fare? Do I look stronger now?
  • Raphael: Umm. Heh...
  • Flayn: It's working! I knew this would help!

B Support Edit

  • Flayn: Hello, Raphael! Are you well? Any chance you might be training today?
  • Raphael: Of course! My muscles are always ready to train!
  • Flayn: I imagine so! Mind if I tag along? I have been practicing my battle cries -- I believe you shall notice a marked improvement! Raaaah! Yaaaah!
  • Raphael: Wow! That sounds much better than last time! But try doing it more like this. Urraaaggh! Hrraaah!
  • Flayn: Oh, hearing it anew is positively invigorating! I have much training ahead if I am to be as strong as you.
  • Raphael: Try not to strain yourself. You've got smarts, so you shouldn't need to have to worry about your muscles.
  • Flayn: I won't be satisfied until my body is as strong as my mind! As my body is so frail, my brother is endlessly worrying over me.
  • Raphael: I know what that's like. I have a little sister too. I always worry about her, even when it's something small, like catching a cold.
  • Flayn: Then surely you understand. I want to give my brother peace of mind. If I don't get stronger, I won't be able to do all the things I wish to do. But I'm quite enjoying this! I have never shouted so loudly in all my life! Each time I allow myself to let go in such a way, I feel invigorated!
  • Raphael: Well, if you're having fun, I'm not gonna stop you! Go on and shout as much as you want! Give it all you've got and make your brother proud.
  • Flayn: Just you wait -- I've only just begun!
  • Raphael: All right! Gather all your energy deep in your gut and get ready to shout!
  • Flayn: Kyaaaa! Raaaaah!

  • Raphael: Nice work! Here you go. Drink up!
  • Flayn: Ah, thank you. This water tastes absolutely divine.
  • Raphael: Your shouts are really coming from the gut now. I bet you're getting stronger too!
  • Flayn: I'm not so sure I'm stronger, but somehow, when I shout, I'm able to move more books than normal. Although my brother becomes very anxious anytime he hears me shouting. I do suppose my body feels a bit sturdier now though! I'm so very grateful to you, Raphael.
  • Raphael: Oh, no, thank you! I'm just happy to have someone to shout with.
  • Flayn: But... doesn't all this shouting keep you from your precious workout regimen?
  • Raphael: Nah. Don't worry about that. I think I'm in better shape now than I was before! My muscles work overtime when they hear you shouting so close to me!
  • Flayn: Isn't that wonderful! Come along, Raphael's muscles -- we can do this! It is my wish that someday, I'll be able to list a log all on my own with these arms of mine.
  • Raphael: I'm sure they will! I used to think you were a lost cause, but look at you now! If you really wanna get there, you gotta start training your muscles while we shout, all right? You've already got big brains, but if we can get you big muscles too, you're gonna be invincible!
  • Flayn: Invincible! I like the sound of that!
  • Flayn: Wraaagh! Urraaaaah!
  • Raphael: Whouugh! Hurrghaaah!
  • Flayn: Urrhaaaaa! Hyuuuuuurgh!
  • Raphael: Rraaagh! Hiiyaaah!
