Pre-Battle

Elder
I can't believe you've come to our aid! Oh, gods be good! Thank you, sir!


Frederick
We heard rumors of girls being snatched by the Grimleal for use in sacrificial rites.


Elder
All true, I fear... Our own village has lost three already. Please, you must see that no more are allowed to suffer this cruel fate!


Chrom
The Grimleal have stolen their last victim. I swear it.


Frederick
Do you know where the zealots gather?


Elder
One of the girls escaped and made her way here. Perhaps she can tell you more. She's a gentle sort, but a bit... Um... Well, I'll just bring her.

Emmeryn
......


Robin
Emmeryn?!


Chrom
E-Emmeryn?! Sister, is that you?!


Lissa
Oh my gosh! EMMERYN!


Emmeryn
Sis...ter?


Lissa
It's me, Emm! Lissa!


Chrom
What magic is this?! Do you not recognize us?!


Emmeryn
I... Wh-why...


Elder
Please, sir. I fear you're upsetting the girl. She doesn't comprehend as you or I.


Chrom
Explain!


Elder
I... I know little about the situation, sir. The girl doesn't hail from here. She's been like this ever since the night she arrived in our village. When she speaks, it's with the words of a small child. It pains my heart to imagine what horrors drove her to such a state...


Emmeryn
I... Th-this...


Lissa
*Sniff* Ah, gods, Emmeryn...


Chrom
Emm...


Villager
Ill news, sir! The Grimleal make for the village!


Elder
Not again! We can't allow any more innocent girls to be hurt!


Chrom
Nor can we. Shepherds! Prepare for battle!


Start Battle

Chrom
...What do you mean she's not here?!


Elder
I-I'm sorry, sir! I looked away for but a moment and she'd disappeared! Perhaps she thought the zealots had come to take her back and wanted to spare us.


Chrom
That certainly sounds like something she'd do. Well, she can't have gotten far. Come on!


Emmeryn
Ch... Chro...


>Battle Start


Village

Elder
Fate has already stolen much from that girl. To take her life as well would be too cruel! Please, take this staff and use it to see her home safely!


Chrom talks to Emmeryn

Chrom
Emmeryn!


Emmeryn
Mmm...?


Chrom
It's me, Chrom. Do you remember? We're siblings. We grew up together. You, me, and Lissa. You were always the strongest of us. Even more than me.


Emmeryn
I d-don't... I can't...


Chrom
Gods, Sis, I just... I don't know what to do here. All right, listen. I won't ask you to remember anything. Not even me. Just...stay with us. Please. We love you, and we want to keep you safe.


Lissa talks to Emmeryn

Lissa
Emmeryn!


Emmeryn
Mmm...?


Lissa
Do you really not remember me? Or Chrom...?


Emmeryn
I don't... I c-can't...


Lissa
...... It's been super hard not having you around. But I've tried to be strong, like you. And if I've done this well without you, think how well I'd do WITH you! So c'mon, Sis. You gotta stay with us! Even if you don't remember anything!


Frederick talks to Emmeryn

Frederick
Your Grace! Lady Emmeryn, please wait.


Emmeryn
Mmm...?


Frederick
We heard rumors. People said your body was never found, but... We had to flee, Your Grace. Gangrel would have killed us all.


Emmeryn
......

Frederick
Sometimes I'd allow myself a kind of fool's hope that you survived. Maybe you were taken in by some kind Plegian, or found by a traveling merchant... But mostly I feared that if you'd lived, you'd fallen to an even harsher fate. I never forgot about you. Even after all this time, I've been...hoping. And here you are, confirming both the good and ill of my secret thoughts.


Emmeryn
Y-you... I d-don't...


Frederick
Your brother has grown into a fine man, but he would do well by your company. Stay with us, Your Grace. I beg it of you. I promise I will not fail you again.


Emmeryn Defeated

Emmeryn
Aah...


VS Ardri

Ardri
Lord Grima demands blood! All things unto Lord Grima!


Ardri Defeated

Ardri
All things...unto...


Post-Battle

If Emmeryn survived

Emmeryn
Mmm... Th-thank...


Chrom
...... I'm torn, Robin. If she somehow regains her memory, it may mean greater pain for her.


Robin
It may, yes.


Chrom
But damn it, I want my sister back. I want her to remember Lissa and me. I want to just...talk to her again. Is that selfish, Robin? I know I'd be returning her to a world that nearly killed her once already. She'd remember all the taunts, all the guilt, all the pressure she lived under...


Robin
It's a difficult situation, Chrom. I don't know what to say.


Chrom
She's alive, and free, and for that I should be doubly grateful. And yet... It's not enough. It's not enough for her to be alive like...this.


Emmeryn
Don't...c-cry...


Chrom
Did she just...?


Lissa
She did! Oh, Emmeryn, it's you! You always used to say that to us when we were younger! I knew you'd come back to us! I knew it! *sob*


Chrom
All right, then. No more crying. For any of us. You were strong for me once. Now it's my turn. I'll keep you safe from now on, Sis. I swear it.

If Emmeryn was defeated

Robin
Chrom... It's...over.


Chrom
...I've failed her again.


Robin
You did everything you—


Chrom
Don't say it, Robin. Just...don't. ...Come on. Let's go.
