Basch fon Ronsenberg: So you have lived?

Judge Gabranth: I am Judge Magister. Even in disgrace. My just reward for aiding the empire that destroyed my homeland.

Basch fon Ronsenberg: Gabranth, do not blame yourself anymore.

Judge Gabranth: You confound me, brother! You failed Landis! You failed Dalmasca! All you were to protect! Yet you still hold onto your honour! How?

Basch fon Ronsenberg: I had someone more important to defend. And defend her I have. How is it that you have survived? Is it not because you defend Lord Larsa?

Judge Gabranth: Silence! All was stripped from me! Only hatred for the brother that fled our homeland remains mine! Tell me: why do you forsake that which you must hold most precious?

Basch fon Ronsenberg: I do as I must, brother. Or is that not answer enough?

Balthier: I play the leading man, who else? Fran, the magicite.

Fran: Now then, I'll take that.

Vaan: No you won't! I found it, it's mine.

Balthier: And when I take it from you, it will be mine.

Vayne Solidor: People of Rabanastre! Is it with hatred you look upon your consul? With hatred you look upon the Empire?

Crowd: Spit on your empire! Go back to Archadia!

Vayne Solidor: There was little point in asking. But know this: I hold no idle hopes of frustrating that hatred. Nor shall I ask your fealty. That is the due of your fallen King, and rightly so. King Raminas loved his people; strove to bring you peace. His was a rule worthy of your devotion. Even now, he remains among you, protecting you. His ardor for the peace and weal of Dalmasca falters not! I would ask only that you do your King honor. Together, let us embrace the peace His Majesty would surely desire. Two years now divide us from war's bitter end, yet still its shadow looms over all, stifling the infant peace, a pall only you may cast off! Achieve but this one thing, and your hatred of me and of the Empire will grieve me not. I will stand fast. I will endure your hatred, suffer your slings and arrows - I will defend Dalmasca! Here I will pay my debt. I swear it now. Though King Raminas and Lady Ashe be gone, they stand ever at the side of their people. In honoring peace, you do honor to their memory, and to Dalmasca. What I ask, I ask plain. My hopes now rest with you.

[bows]

Crowd: [cheers and applause]

Ashe: [slapping Basch, angered] After what you've done! How dare you! You're supposed to be dead!

Judge Magister Ghis: Come now, come now! Have you forgotten your manners? This is hardly the courtesy due... the late Princess Ashelia B'nargin Dalmasca.

Vaan: Princess?

Judge Magister Ghis: To be sure, she bears no proof of her former station. No different than any mean member of the insurgence.

Ashe: The Resistance

Judge Magister Ghis: His Excellency the Consul asks the Ministry of the Disthroned Royal Family in restoring peace to Dalmasca. Those who foster instability and unrest, who claim Royal Blood without proof... they shall meet their fate at the gallows. There are no exceptions

Ashe: I will not play puppet to Vayne!

Basch fon Ronsenberg: King Raminas entrusted me with a task. Should the time come, he bade me give you something of great importance. It is your birthright: The Dusk Shard. I will warrant with the quality of her blood. Only I know where to find it.

Ashe: Wait. You took my father's life! Why spare mine now? You would have me live in shame!

Basch fon Ronsenberg: If that is your duty: Yes.

Vaan: Stop being so stubborn! Keep on like this and you're gonna get us both killed

Bergan: [Chuckles] No. No, the power of Manufacted Nethicite is the power of Man! A weapon forged by his wisdom... who would challenge the gods themselves!

[holds up his sword]

Bergan: A fitting blade for a true Dynast-King! Raithwall did but pretend the title... a cur begging Nethicite scraps from his Master's table! Hark! Ivalice hails her true Dynast-King, Vayne Solidor! He shall defy the will of the Gods and see the reins of history back in the hands of Man! His time is Nigh! The new Ivalice holds no place for the name Dalmasca.

We have found the counter-Imperial elements in Bhujerba to be conspicuously well-funded. No doubt Marquis Ondore is behind this. Ondore must be reined in.

Vayne Solidor: By the way, the Marquis has written us a letter. He claims that he's recaptured our runaway. He's given him to Ghis.

Vayne Solidor: Such a woman is not fit to bear the burden of rule. Weep for Dalmasca, for She is lost. Observe well, Larsa. Watch and mark you the suffering of one who must rule, yet lacks the power.

Ashe: Lusting for ever greater power, blinded by the Nethicite. Is that how you see me?

Balthier: That does sound like someone I know. He was obsessed with Nethicite. It was all he cared about. He'd babble nonsense, blind to aught but the Stone's power. He'd talk about some 'Eynah,' or was it 'Venat'? No matter. Everything he did, he did to get closer to the Nethicite, to understand it. He made airships, weapons. He even made me a Judge.

Ashe: You were a Judge?

Balthier: Part of a past I'd rather forget It didn't last long. I ran. I left the Judges... and him. Cidolfus Demen Bunansa. Draklor Laboratory's very own Doctor Cid. That's when he lost his heart to Nethicite, lost himself. And I suppose that's when I lost my father.

Cidolfus Demen Bunansa - Cid: The reins of History back in the hands of Man. I too make for Giruvegan. Give chase, if you dare it!

Gerun King: Ashelia B'nargin Dalmasca. We see your heart desires power, and power most holy shall we grant. Seek you the Sun-cryst, slumb'ring star. In tower on distant shore it dreams. The mother of all Nethicite, the source of its unending power. The Dynast-King, his fallow shards, coarse trinkets cut from Sun-cryst's light.

Ashe: Such power exists?

Gerun King: In times that are long passed away, we thought to save this Ivalice and chose Raithwall the Dynast-King. He took the sword and cut the Cryst. Three Shards he took from its gilt grasp. His words and deeds run through your veins.

Ashe: That's why I was given it - the Sword of Kings.

Gerun King: The treaty held with kings of old is but a mem'ry, cold and still. With you we now shall treat anew, to cut a run for hist'ry's flow.

[the Treaty-Blade appears]

Gerun King: Now take this sword, this Treaty-Blade. Occurian seal, mark of your worth. Cut deep the Cryst and seize your Shards. Wield Dynast-King's power! Destroy Venat!

Ashe: But Venat... Venat is an Occurian. A being like you.

Gerun King: [roaring] Venat is a heretic! The Nethicite is ours to give, to chosen bearer or to none. The heretic trespassed and set the rose of knowledge in Man's hand. With imitations they profane, it is anathema to us. We give you now the Stone and task. Administer judgment: destroy them all!

Ashe: Judgment? Destroy them all? The Empire?

Gerun King: The Humes ever skew hist'ry's weave. With haste they move through too-short lives. Driven to err by base desires, t'ward waste and wasting on they run. Undying, we Occuria light the path for wayward sons of man. Oft did we pass judgment on them so that Ivalice might endure. Eternal, we are hist'ry's stewards, to set the course and keep it true. The chosen is our hand, our fist, to let like some and crush the rest. Princess, you have been chosen. Take revenge against those who stole your kingdom. Fulfil your role as savior. Attain to your birthright!
