Part 8: Splitting Will
In the castle of Bern, Murdock's headquarters…
MURDOCK: (to Narshen) So we couldn't get Ostia…
NARSHEN: I-I apologise, General Murdock.
MURDOCK: … There's still one more chance.
MURDOCK: We've located Princess Guinevere.
NARSHEN: Oh, where is she?
MURDOCK: She is in Misul under the care of Etrurian General Cecilia.
NARSHEN: (to himself) Damn that bitch…
MURDOCK: You will go there with Flaer and make sure the princess is returned by—Oh, good timing.
NARSHEN: (turns around)
MILEDY: (arriving) Oh. We… Meet again.
NARSHEN: … Yes. (to Gale) And you…
GALE: How've you been?
MURDOCK: … Anyway, Miledy, I expect you to follow Narshen to Misul.
MILEDY: (thinking to herself) You must be joking! (to Murdock) Yes. Wait—Why're we—?
MURDOCK: The princess is there now hurry up! The Lycian army's stronger than we thought and they'll win this one if we're not ready.
MILEDY, NARSHEN: (Leave grudgingly)
GALE: Do you think that was a good idea?
MURDOCK: No. But if they're true knights of Bern, they'll do their duty before anything.
MURDOCK: Gale, there's something I must tell you.
GALE: What is it?
MURDOCK: I suspect that Miledy will join the Lycian Alliance army soon.
MURDOCK: YOU may not believe me at this moment but let me continue.
GALE: … Go on.
MURDOCK: There's no need for you to agree right not but Miledy has always been fiercely loyal to Princess Guinevere and her beliefs.
GALE: But surely she'd know well enough to know that treason is…
MURDOCK: Like I said, you don't have to agree with me now. I just thought it would be important to tell you.
GALE: … Well, thank you.
MURDOCK: From here, it's essential for you to remember your allegiance to Bern. For the things it has given you.
GALE: (remembering Renault's words)
"You must know what you are fighting for or it will be futile in the end." – Renault's words in Gale's mind
GALE: (to himself) It? What is 'it'?
MURDOCK: Gale, you know what you are fighting for, don't you?
GALE: (thinking to himself) Fighting for…?
"Many soldiers like yourself have done stupid things and made others suffer because they didn't think." –Renault's words in Gale's mind
GALE: Oh, yes.
MURDOCK: I don't have to remind you.
GALE: The… Great cause of Bern.
GALE: … There is something I wish to ask you.
GALE: What exactly is this… Great cause?
MURDOCK: Well… It is this revolutionary concept that the king sees as a way to justice.
GALE: I… see.
MURDOCK: Anyway, I think I have said enough. Just don't leak out any information to her until you see her return.
MURDOCK: You may leave now.
GALE: (thinking to himself) Revolutionary concept…? What? That doesn't say anything! Darn it. More importantly, would Miledy really betray Bern? (Looks up)
[Further away, he sees Miledy and Narshen leave into the distance.]
GALE: Hope she's not going to be too unfriendly. After all, he's going to die a—I should stop thinking that.
