||Battle 23C: Amorika
Objective: Kill the leader!
Union: Walsta Liberation Army
- This is one of the few one-on-one battles that you'll find in
Tactics Ogre, and the difficulty of this battle will depend on what
you've done with Denim. If you've trained him to be a physical
fighter, you will probably have a pretty easy time with him; if you've
trained Denim to be a Wizard, you'll likely have more difficulty with
Denim: Why do we have to fight,
Vice: Why you? Why does everyone
like you? Since we were kids, everyone liked you, but not me. I was
always the outcast! Do you know why? Damn it! It's because of my father!
Your father was a respected priest, but my father was just a scrubby
alcoholic. Plus, he used to always beat me! Still, everyone just hated
me! I'm nothing like my father, nor do I want to be...you always had
Denim: But, I still treated you
like my own brother!
Denim: We were best friends!
What has happened to us?
Vice: That's what you thought! I hate
you! It's not fair...people loved you. You had a great father and a
Denim: She thinks of you as family
Vice: No, she doesn't! You don't know
anything!! She only has you on her mind. She doesn't care about me! Can't
you see?! Kachua didn't even love your father. She only loves you!
Denim: It's not too late to fix
everything. Let's be friends like we used to be!
Vice: Don't try to bend the truth! You're
a traitor! I have my own comrades now. Even Duke Ronway and Leonard believe
Denim: That is not true! They are
taking advantage of you! Once they are done with you, they will kill you!
Vice: You're such a baby!! They're not
taking advantage of me! I'm the one who is taking advantage of them! I'm
the one using them for my own benefit!
(When Vice gets to critical HP, Leonard suddenly enters)
Leonard: Stop this! Both of you!
(Denim and Vice approach Leonard)
Vice: Leonard, why are you stopping
Leonard: Don't you know what's
going on?! Relax Vice!
Vice: You were the one who said
to kill him! Why did you stop...
Leonard: Listen to me! Denim, you
too! The city of Rime has fallen! The Bacrum Army is coming this way!
Denim: No!!! What happened to Sir Lans?
This can't be happening...!
Leonard: We don't know what happened to
the Holy Knight! He is either dead or he could have escaped. Anyway, this
is not the time to fight between our own people. Let me explain... Denim,
obey the Duke. We will forget about the past! Come fight with us against
Vice: This is bullshit! I'm not talking
to this traitor!
Leonard: Quit acting like a baby, Vice.
Why can't you listen to me?! Denim, what do you plan to do? No, you don't
have to tell me... No matter how sacred the ideal may be, if it is not
achieved, then it is meaningless. Do you want your ideals to end up as a
dream? Weren't you supposed to avenge your father's death? Come, join us.
|Denim:||1. There's no time.|
2. I can't go back.
Denim: I can't go back. You're the
same as Bacrum...you're blinded by the Duke's words. You're nothing but
a slave to the system!
Leonard: Then what are you going to
do?! Do you really think you can do any better?
Denim: I'm not that ambitious. I'm
just trying to fix things... I just can't believe people do not have
their own dreams, and base everything on just what they see.
Leonard: People will kill each other
over a loaf of bread. They only fight for their own selfish reasons. War
will never cease from this world. Unless human nature changes, war will
always be around. Our duty is to watch and control those people and create
a world of order.
Denim: I don't understand. I can't
believe what you're saying. What should I believe? What am I fighting for?
What are you...?
Leonard: I understand. I will give you
time to think about it. Think about it. Now go, Denim! Take Kachua and get
away from this castle.
Vice: Leonard, what's the meaning of
Leonard: Go and see the world with your
own eyes. See the world as it really is! What you're looking for is not here
and no one else can find it for you. Go and find out for yourself. When you
don't find what you're looking for, then come back to us. I will be waiting
for you. Go now!
Denim: I will never lose hope! I shall
not be defeated by my own fears! (leaves)
Vice: Wait, Denim!
Leonard: Leave him alone! Unless he
finds the truth for himself, nothing will change his mind.
Vice: You'll regret it later if you
don't kill him now! Are you sure it's okay?
Leonard: When the time comes, I will
kill him. (leaves)
Vice: ...I will be the one to kill him.
Denim: There's no time. The true
enemy is Bacrum...
Leonard: Great! That is the way of a
Vice: This is a joke! Are you guys
serious?! I'm not going to allow this. No way!! (storms out)
Denim: Wait, Vice!
Leonard: Leave him alone. We have to
see Duke Ronway!
I have my own ideals, don't push yours on
