It’s all me!

Excuse me!
Sorry about this!

Quotes: Castle

Do none of you members of the Order of Heroes use staves to support others in battle? Then I’ll double my efforts!
My retainers are Hana and Subaki, both equally strong and reliable. Th-they’re almost too good for me!
Are you checking on the others? So was I. It’s important to make sure that everyone’s doing all right.
I’m pretty fond of sweets. If you see any sweetshops around, please let me know right away!
Sorry, I was just practicing. I really want to be as useful as all my older siblings are in battle.

Oh! Thank you so very much for checking up on me, {Summoner}.
I’m doing well, but may I tell you something? When I first got here, I wasn’t sure how to act around you.
They call you a Great Hero, so I thought I should respect such a great person by keeping my distance.
But then I got to know you. You’re so kind and put everyone at ease—most of all, me.
It’s almost like you’ve become a part of my family. I mean, here we are now, simply chatting.
S-so now...I have s-something to ask you. Would you consider thinking of m-me…
as a friend?
What? You already do? Why, that’s wonderful! I am so glad you summoned me into your life.
I promise to help you any way that I can...friend!
