Before battle (Terin)
Assembling is forbidden! All violators will be punished immediately!
Assembling? We were just talking around the well...
Silence! No excuses!
Can I really have just seen that?
Lady Fiona. The self-proclaimed Liberation Army is on the march.
Marado's army has been ordered to deploy with us.
Understood, General. We will prepare immediately. But I need to address
your soldiers' conduct--
A new war is afoot. You never answered Ashnard's call
to arms in the last one. You have a reputation for ruling wisely. Don't
endanger your people by hurling ugly accusations at my soldiers. I
trust I needn't worry that you'll fail to answer the empire's call.
I will not lie to you. My people are proud citizens of
Daein, and some agree with these so-called liberators. However, I will
not lead my people into danger over ridiculous rumors of some unknown
I'm glad to hear it.
I need a volunteer.
Follow that woman's every move. I trust her no farther than I can throw
Before battle (Liberation Army Camp)
Well, well! The rumors that my... operatives started
have spread like wildfire through all of Daein! Late King Ashnard's
orphan surfaces! Silver-Haired Maiden at Prince Pelleas's side! Now
that we have the people's attention...we snag their hearts! We'll just
extol the savior, fan the rebellion, go to battle...and conquer the
enemy in a blaze of glory!
Do we have sufficient forces to arouse said rebellion and achieve
You let me worry about that. This highly sophisticated strategizing is
beyond your young minds!
Worry not, my prince. After painstaking investigation,
I have determined the exact locations to target! Gather 'round, all of
you! Hear my plan for our next strike.
If the Liberation Army attacks any of these places, we are assured of
an absolute victory.
Masterful as always, Izuka. It's good to know I can count on you.
First, we'll target Talrega. It borders the frontier. Begnion's hold is
shaky... and resentment runs high.
No. Talrega is no good.
Wha-what was that!? On what grounds are my decisions being questioned
by this...this child?!
The timing is wrong. Because of the rains, we won't be able to advance
well, let alone fight.
It's true. I'm from Talrega, and I remember well the
landslides and floods that come every spring. The mountain road leading
to that particular work camp is notoriously dangerous.
Wha-what?! Impossible! My...my strategy is flawless, perfect even.
Hmph, I never...
Micaiah, where do you think we should attack?
... Terin... We'll have better luck in Terin.
Terin, too, lies in the mountains, but in the arid northern region,
where the weather is predictable.
Micaiah, you're amazing! I count my blessings to have you as
vice-general. You give me hope.
Lady Micaiah, few outsiders know of the landslides in Talrega. Have you
been there before?
Micaiah is a powerful seer. We in the Dawn Brigade owe our lives and
our freedom to her abilities.
Goodness, Izuka, what is it?
She can foresee battle outcomes!? Magnificent! Why
didn't anybody tell me of this? This only makes the maiden that much
more appealing. And let us just be honest here, my foresight in
decreeing her vice- general was wondrous--nay, genius!
Excellent. Well then, yes. All bow to the maiden's vision. Let's leave
the camp and make for Terin!
Before battle (Terin)
A small troop approaches from the east! It appears to be the Daein
...Blissfully ignorant of the trap that awaits them. I pity them,
Have the first platoon assume their battle positions!
Shall we deploy too?
Kind of you to offer, Lady Fiona. But the first platoon will suffice
here. This is really none of Marado's business.
I see. In that case, we'll use this opportunity to observe the empire's
army at work.
(Enemy phase, Turn 1)
Hornet hairs! At this rate they'll breach our lines before we can stop
them. I have no choice. You! Bring out the prisoners!
I'm sc-scared! Please don't hurt me.
Lord Laverton, exactly what are you planning to do?!
This so-called Liberation Army is forcing me to sacrifice this boy!
Fight, and these people will be executed right now! Surrender, and they
will be spared.
...Everyone, throw down your weapons.
You have a feeling, don't you? Got it. We'll follow your instinct.
Ha ha ha ha ha... A wise choice, girl! Well, no more need for these
prisoners, is there? Kill them all!
What do you think you're doing?
I'll have nothing to do with you and your monstrous tactics!
So, you betray us after all. Marado has never been known for holding
its faith. You'll die like the rest!
A troop of Daein cavalry just mutinied. Is this what you sensed?
Yes. Now we must reinforce them and help save the hostages!
After battle (Terin)
Thank you for rescuing my people.
Your people? So you must be--
Yes. I am Lanvega's daughter, Fiona. After my father died, I assumed
the governance of Marado.
General Lanvega? From the song? Bryce, Tauroneo,
Gawain, and Lanvega... Four Riders of Daein, one country, one king,
While they bear our banner, A free Daein shall sing. You're THAT
General Lanvega's daughter?
Indeed... Lanvega, of the Four Riders. He was a good
friend, and a mighty swordsman as well. And stubborn as a mule. Your
father was a powerful warrior of unquestionable integrity. A great man.
Yes. And that's why he renounced his rank and title as
Rider and withdrew from court life, rather than serve King Ashnard.
You've heard the rumors, no doubt, that Ashnard murdered his own
father? My father could not serve such a man... And so, to protect
Marado from a madman, we did not send men to fight for Daein in the
war. I doubt you could ever forgive us...
No, quite the opposite. You are these people's
steward, and you chose the course that would protect them. But now,
Begnion is willing to sacrifice innocent children to maintain their
grip over our country. We cannot allow that. That is why we are asking
you to lend your strength to the Liberation Army. Together, we can
reclaim our country.
And now, you ask us to bear part of the burden of
restoring our motherland? If you would have my lance, then... I, Fiona,
Steward of Marado, do gladly swear allegiance to your Liberation Army.
I and my men bind ourselves to your fate. Use my army as best you see
After battle (Daien Keep)
And now, Marado betrays us as well? You are aware
that riots broke out in three other regions yesterday, are you not?
...All quelled immediately, of course, but the unrest grows.
Who cares what the commoners do or think? Does the shepherd fuss when
his sheep butt their heads against the fence post?
Nevertheless, as the insurgence grows, news of it will inevitably reach
Yes... I see what you mean. That would be...less than desirable.
The Imperial Prime Minister Sephiran casts a grim eye
on dishonesty. If he finds out what has been going on in Daein under
That would not be good. Sephiran's persistent as a
mosquito and quick to judge. Though you and I know I have been nothing
but fair and just in my rule here...it's best to avoid an inquiry.
Which leaves us but one recourse... Crush the rebel
faction before it grows larger. Exterminate them. Then the commoners,
bereft of all hope, will turn their sheep eyes back to us and beg to
rejoin the flock.
I see. Well, I leave the matter in your hands. What funding you need is
I'm glad we agree on this. Well then, pardon me, sir, while I tend to
our little lambs on the loose.
