Folken: Van, you are my brother; we share the same blood. This world is difficult for a... gentle soul such as yours to bear. This world, where man fights against man - no, where every living thing fights to take the life of another! We kill beasts, we kill dragons, we even kill men! Fighting begets fighting, and the slaughter begins anew - such is the way of the world.

Allen Schezar: What's the matter? It's all right, little princess, you can tell me. I am a knight of Asturia, Allen Schezar. And you're a guest in this castle. As its commander, I will protect you. It is my duty as a knight, no, as a man, to make sure you are safe.

Allen Schezar: There is nothing brave about rashly choosing to die. Van, you are Fanelia's king! As long as she has a king and a people, Fanelia has a future. Bearing indignity such as this is the mark of true courage. A samurai's life is meant to save others. Don't forget that.

Hitomi Kanzaki: Yeah, it's my good luck charm. It used to be my grandma's. It's kind of neat, actually. When you swing it back and forth, it keeps perfect time, always completing one cycle a second, never slowing down.

Van Fanel: Look, I don't need any woman to worry about me. I guess you want a reward then. Fine! Come to my castle, just don't get cocky. I apologize for involving you and your friends in my dragon slaying. Oh, and by the way, you didn't help me slay the dragon, you know.

Hitomi Kanzaki: [speechless for a second before she slaps him hard across the face] What is your problem? Are you always this pig-headed? I didn't help you for a reward, I , uh, just, well, I thought you were going to die and I was scared, really scared! The *least* you could do is say "thank you." You know, I shouldn't have even saved you. I should have let that stupid dragon eat you!
