Quotes: Special Triggered

See Special Triggered Quotes
Feast, blade. Feast!
My blade, unrestrained!
My blood roils!
I cannot resist...the urge!

Quotes: Castle

See Castle Quotes
The most skillful Heroes from all the worlds gather in this one? What a lovely, lovely place.
I have taken up my family’s blade, which means that I am now one with my weapon.
Point me at the strongest of this world. My blade longs to feast on worthy meat.
Approaching me? Here? I may take that as a challenge someday. Best you learn to defend yourself.
I am practicing a sword technique that we have kept secret within our family—to the extreme.
So, I’ll do you the favor of telling you to walk away. Unless, of course, you wish to see it?

Lv 40 Dialogue

See Lv 40 Dialogue
You are a puzzle to me. I am on the path of the sword and cut down those strong enough to matter.
Yet you cannot fight—not with a sword, not even any magic. Still, you are on my path.
How troubling. Why don’t I just walk around you? Why do I continue to fight for you? Perhaps...
Perhaps it is because having you at my side propels me faster along my path!
In any case, here we are—the sword and the swordless!
What else can I do but continue? That is, until the day when I see you standing IN my way.

      Yes. You can buy the FEH pass again later, even if you cancel the subscription. If you cancel it, you will lose the features like Auto-Start and Re-Do Previous Turn, but you will keep Resplendent units/outfits.
