3 Prologue: The Great Advance
Before Battle (Greil Mercenaries Hideout)
Wow, how long has it been since we were here? It sure feels great to be
Yeah, we've been away for too long... Dealing with Crimean nobles
always seems to take longer than it should. At least now we can finally
get some rest.
Still, it was nice to be needed, don't you think? Especially for a band
of mercenaries as poor as we are.
You know, Ike, if you hadn't renounced your lordship, we wouldn't have
to run around like this to support ourselves.
Oh, I know. I'm just teasing you, silly. Besides, I'd rather spend my
time helping people. Who wants to live like some overstuffed noble,
anyway? Definitely not me! We have Father's legacy to look after, as
well: the Greil Mercenaries.
Ike, a visitor to see you.
A visitor? Who is it?
Long time no see, Ike. I've been looking all over Crimea for you.
You're never home!
Ranulf! How are you, my old friend? How's everyone in Gallia? Is
Everyone's doing great. We laguz don't take ill too easily, so it's
hard not to be "well."
Seeing you again brings back memories. We couldn't have won the war if
not for Gallia's aid...and yours especially.
Well, same goes for you.Who knows where Gallia would be if not for Ike
and the Greil Mercenaries!
Speaking of old friends... I saw Princess Leanne in the Crimean royal
court. Apparently, she'd been looking for
me, too. She said, "Please save my brothers." Do you know what she's
So, she's heard. Let me get straight to the point, Ike. I have some bad
news. War has come to us once
The Laguz Alliance, which is made up of Gallia, Phoenicis, and Kilvas,
is setting out against Begnion. The situation has escalated very
"Escalated" seems a bit soft. I know there are problems between the
laguz and Begnion, but I thought things were getting better.
Rafiel, the eldest son of the herons, brought back some disturbing news
from Daein. He'd learned that Begnion senators ordered the herons'
extermination. This spurred the laguz to strike against Begnion. That's
why I came looking
for you, Ike. We need your help.
Before Battle (Laguz Alliance Camp)
Flaguerre is close now. It's a fortress city near the Begnion border.
We'll storm the city at night and hit them fast enough that the troops
inside the fortress won't have time to take their positions.
Yes! Finally, a chance to rend my foes! But I would rather have a
head-on fight. Why do we wait until nightfall, like a pack of cowards?
What's our role in this?
I want the Greil Mercenaries to act as a guerrilla force. Take out
their fire mages and ballistae. They're really bad news for us laguz.
Bah, enough talking! To the battlefield, to taste my enemies' fear! No
No, Skrimir. This isn't the kind of fight where a general takes the
field. You should stay behi--
Are you insane?! Oh, I'll fight! A general of Gallia does not hide
behind his men! Leave this "tactics" garbage to the beorc. We need only
our claws and teeth! I call an end to this meeting! Time to kill!
Wait! Skrimir! Blast.
Are you OK?
Yeah. That thickheaded fool... This'll be his first major battle.
Hopefully, he won't get his teeth kicked out. How about you, Ike? Are
you sure about
Sure about what?
Well, you know... You're beorc. I'm laguz. You sure you want to take
The Laguz Alliance is in the right, Ranulf. The senate is actively
ignoring you, and worse, they're murdering your messengers. Why
shouldn't we help you get the
senate's attention? I'm sure my people understand. Besides, I would
abandon a friend in need.
Before Battle (Flaguerre)
Oh, this is lunacy! Look how meager our force is, especially
considering our proximity to Gallia!
General Septimus, sir, we're only making the rounds this evening. We
don't need a bigger force.
No, you're wrong! Even now, those bloodthirsty beasts are stalking us.
I just know it! Believe me!
General, p-please calm yourself. You say this every evening, and yet
we've never had any--
E-enemy fire! We're under attack! It's those Gallian beasts! The
sub-humans are attacking us!
See? See?! Now do you see, fool?! I was right! Hah, I told you...umm...
N-now what do we do?
(Focus moves to Skrimir)
Run down all who get in your way! Make your path of blood and bone!
Advance! Advance! Advance!
(Focus moves to Ike)
Yeesh, glad he's on our side! I see the family resemblance. Keep up,
everyone! Let's get to work!
Weaklings! Where is your general? Come out and fight, coward! I am
Skrimir, general of Gallia!
Oh no! They're drawing near! We're finished! We're doomed!
P-please, be quiet, General! You'll hurt the troops' morale! Wait,
where are you going?!
To safety! I must escape to Mugill. The beasts... The beasts wish to...
General Septimus! Gutless coward! Are you scared of these worthless
After Battle (Fortress)
Are we done?
Yeah. The guards are dead, and the rest of the troops fled to the east.
We're in good shape.
Bah! Is that it? I still crave blood! Find me more humans to kill!
The civilians have no quarrel with us, and the soldiers who surrendered
have handed over their weapons.
Grrrrr. If this is all the fight Begnion can give, this war will be
over too soon!
I wouldn't be so sure. We won this fight, yes, but the empire has a
massive army. Don't forget that there was a time when Begnion ruled
Hmph. You forget...that was before my time.
Did you listen to a word I just said?
Soldiers of Gallia! The battle is over! We have won! No human can stand
against the laguz! We are not done yet! We'll continue to fight, kill,
and crush our enemies!
My... What a stupid speech.
Don't say things like that. I hear that King Caineghis of Gallia was
not so different when he was young. So try not to judge so
I don't know. That's really hard to imagine.
I'm sure that Skrimir will settle down, given time. Well, I hope so,
Victory awaits us in Mugill! We shall attack, conquer, and celebrate
After Battle (Forest, night)
Ike, I've been thinking. Is this war...something that we should really
be fighting? After all, we know about Lehran's Medallion...
"As long as the dark god sleeps within the medallion, the world shall
not war." Is that what you mean?
That's right. Our ancestors made a vow, and it's our responsibility to
prevent the horror they strove against.
(Image of the Medallion)
"Chaos is born of strife." "If the land is covered in war, the dark god
will break free of the medallion and destroy the world." This war could
easily spread across Tellius, and the dark god could be awakened. We
were very fortunate during the Mad King's War, but it was a close call.
Can we count on being lucky again? Already, we're talking about a war
between Begnion, the largest nation on Tellius, and three laguz
countries. That's half the known world, and
it's not over yet. Have they all forgotten about the possibility of the
dark god's rebirth?
Hello, all. Sorry to interrupt. Lady Titania, Soren, you're both very
perceptive. I'd expect nothing less from the deputy commander and the
strategist of the Greil Mercenaries. You don't have to worry, though.
The whole situation is under control.
(Image of the Medallion and the three herons)
The medallion is under the protection of the Serenes royal family. Even
if the god escaped, the herons can control it with their galdrar.
Reyson, Leanne, and...Prince Rafiel, was it?
Ah. Ages ago, the heron leader Lehran sealed the dark god within the
medallion. His descendants have therefore been taught how to subdue it
with their seid magic.
So that's the story. We'll be relying heavily on the power of the Greil
Mercenaries. I'm counting on you all.
Understood. We'll do our best to see this conflict finished as quickly
as possible. Right, Ike?
Yes. Of course.
