->''"[[InAWorld In this world]], is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcendental entity or law? Is it like the hand of God hovering above? At least it is true that man has no control, even over his own will. Man takes up the sword in order to shield the small wound in his heart sustained in a far-off time beyond remembrance. Man wields the sword so that he may die smiling in some far-off time beyond perception."''

-> ''"That day you left, that's when I knew. The thing I could not stop gazing at and thinking about wasn't Griffith, kneeling in the snow defeated for the first time and devastated by it. It was you, watching you walk away from us and never look back. It gripped me, I couldn't accept what I was feeling, this woman unable to blink, unable to turn away as you disappeared. The life I had led the moment I met Griffith all at once felt betrayed. My life had been an honest one: I had only my pride, and I owe that to Griffith, but... I'm changing. There may be a place for me in this man's soul. [[TheFourLoves Not because of what I may receive, but for something of worth I may have for him.]]"''

->''"In the end, this is all there is for me. It's not a clear , concrete destination like what Griffith said. It's not some lofty, glittering thing. Yeah, this is nearer to me. Like it's part of my body. With this I've kept myself alive through more moments than I can count. Because this was there, I once again threw myself into the jaws of death. Almost the entire time I've been alive, this was next to me as a part of my body. When I lost Gambino, when I met Griffith and the Band of the Hawk, and when I parted with them...Zod the Immortal, suffering I should've never been able to bear, and moments I could sense death, I came through all of it with this. Unforgettable things, unforgettable people, and all of it by the tip of the sword. I get the feeling I've done it all by grasping a hilt in my hand. I wield the sword. Maybe it's different from the dream Griffith talks about, but for no one else's sake, without being swept up, this time it's by my own will. Making my own sparks, even for an instant. I've made up my mind. I'll ''never'' entrust my sword to another again. I'll ''never'' hang from someone else's dream. From now on, every battle will be my own."''

->'''Rickert''': What's this?\\
'''Erica''': Oh, that? The ''[[{{BFS}} Dragon Slayer]]''.\\
'''Rickert''': Dragon Slayer...?\\
'''[[TheBlacksmith Godo]]''': A king sent out a proclamation long ago to bring him a sword that could kill a dragon, and so the lord put me on the job. At that time I'd gotten sick of doing work for nobles. "Make 'em refined, make 'em elegant..." Swords are just large butcher knives, after all. Tools meant for ''killing'' people. And so I forged it, as it was ''described''. A sword that could butcher...a ''dragon''.\\
'''Rickert''': S-so then?\\
'''Godo''': I almost got hung out to dry. So I ran away from the castle town, and I've lived here quietly since. I sure was ''young'' back then. Mighty things, things that could kill, that's all there was for me. But if anyone could handle ''this'', it'd still just be a hinderance. I don't like losin' track of the essence of a tool, but that's exactly what I did here. Now it's a good reminder.\\
'''Rickert''': Can it...kill one? Could this really kill...a dragon?\\
'''Godo''': If there ''were'' any dragons. But you know, this ain't even what you'd call a sword. It's a meaningless slab of iron you can't even lift, for killin' dragons and monsters that ain't even real. Your friend looks like he's about to fight a dragon, though. Seems to want to fight even after losing his hand and eye. He ain't up to the job, is he? Dragons are dragons because humans can't ''beat'' 'em."
