End of All

    Full Song 
You are the ocean's gray waves, destined to seek
Life beyond the shore just out of reach
Yet the waters ever change, flowing like time
The path is yours to climb
In the white light, a hand reaches through
A double-edged blade cuts your heart in two
Waking dreams fade away,
Embrace the brand-new day
Sing with me a song of birthrights and love
The light scatters to the sky above
Dawn breaks through the gloom, white as a bone
Lost in thoughts all alone
You are the ocean's gray waves, destined to seek
Life beyond the shore just out of reach
Yet the waters ever change, flowing like time
The path is yours to climb
Embrace the dark you call a home,
Gaze upon an empty, white throne
A legacy of lies,
A familiar disguise
Sing with me a song of conquest and fate
The black pillar cracks beneath its weight
Night breaks through the day, hard as a stone
Lost in thoughts all alone
The path you walk on belongs to destiny, just let it flow
All of your joy and your pain will fall like the tide, let it flow
Life is not just filled with happiness, or sorrow
Even the thorn in your heart, in time it may become a rose
A burdened heart sinks into the ground
A veil falls away without a sound
Not day nor night, wrong nor right
For truth and peace you fight
Sing with me a song of silence and blood
The rain falls, but can't wash away the mud
Within my ancient heart dwells madness and pride
Can no one hear my cry
You are the ocean's gray waves, destined to seek
Life beyond the shore, just out of reach
Yet the waters ever change, flowing like time
The path is yours to climb
You are the ocean's gray waves

    Lost in Thoughts All Alone 
You are the ocean's gray waves...(x2)
You are the ocean's gray waves, destined to seek
Life beyond the shore just out of reach
Yet the waters ever change, flowing like time
The path is yours to climb
(You are the ocean's gray waves...)
In endless dreams, countless realms collide
Hope falls only to rise like the changing tide
But all dreams come to an end,
Just whispers on the wind...
You are the ocean's gray waves, destined to seek
Life beyond the shore just out of reach
Yet the waters ever change, flowing like time
The path is yours to climb
(You are the ocean's gray waves...)(x2)
Sing with me one last time, for light's sacrifice,
Endless dawn came but not without a price,
Lost in the waves there glimmers a pale blue stone.
I think of you, all alone.

Heirs of Fate

    Child vs Parent (Unmarked Spoliers for Heirs of Fate) 

Ignatius vs. Benny

Ignatius: Eek! F-Father?!
Benny: ...
Ignatius: Father... What happened to you? Did they really defeat you? Oh no...this is all because you tried to keep me safe. I'm sorry, Father. It must have hurt... You must have been scared... But you'd never admit that would you? You'd claim you're fine no matter what. You're kinder and stronger than anyone else I know.
Benny: ...
Ignatius: That's why I'm not afraid. No matter what's happened, you're still you. I'll take over protecting everyone for you. This will all be over soon. The pain, the fear...our fight right now. I'll forget it all. Which is a little sad. But when I see you again, we'll be together for good. As a real family. I want you to know...I have no stronger charm than you, Father.

Velouria vs. Keaton

Velouria: Daddy! Oh, dear Daddy, I finally found you! I've been looking EVERYWHERE!
Keaton: ...
Velouria: Um, Daddy... You're not dead, are you? You didn't leave me behind, right? L-look...I found a bunch of pretty dust bunnies on my way here. Just for you! See, Daddy?
Keaton: ...
Velouria: What's wrong with your scent? You're supposed to smell all gentle and warm. I'm sorry...I was bad. I thought you died. I gave up on you. This is what I get, right? I always knew one day I'd say good-bye to you and never say hello again. One day you'd go somewhere far away. But I didn't want it to be NOW! I wanted more time with you! I thought maybe...I could live with you forever... Daddy, come back. Don't stay so cold. Don't make me cry. Come back to me!

Caeldori vs. Subaki

Caeldori: Father?! You there! Wait! Can it really be you, Father?!
Subaki: ...
Caeldori: I knew it... Whatever form you take, I would never mistake the sight of you. But I thought I'd seen the last of you after— Oh, yes! Why wouldn't you let me fight alongside you, then?! Why did you insist on protecting me? I would have stood with you to the end!
Subaki: ...
Caeldori: I'm sorry... You gave your life to protect me, and all I do is complain. All the same, there was no perfection in what you did. The father I know is strong enough to protect both himself and me at once. Such a man would never die in this miserable place. I'll save you from this fate if you'll only take my hand. I won't let you out of my sight until we've brought you back to yourself. This time, I'll protect you!

Rhajat vs. Hayato

Rhajat: You there... Show your face. Allow me to confirm one of my suspicions.
Hayato: ...
Rhajat: Hmph... I thought as much. Turning my own father against me... Is there nothing this dragon won't stoop to? If he were a doll, or a clone, I would put him to the flame without a thought. But my own true flesh and blood? Of all the low-down, underhanded tricks... Fate is cruel indeed.
Hayato: ...
Rhajat: Now that you stand before me again, I don't know what to say. It's pointless to apologize or thank you when you haven't ears to hear me. But words have power. None know that so well as I...and so I promise you this. By my words, I will release you and this world from its curse. Father, I WILL free you, whatever the cost.

Selkie vs. Kaden

Selkie: It's Daddy! He's here! You can't fool me, Daddy! The nose knows! Uh, doesn't it?
Kaden: ...
Selkie: You're so silly, Daddy! You thought you could hide, but I always find you! Here you go—I got your scarf back. It's a little torn up, but I kept it for you! But I guess you probably don't want this ratty old thing, huh? Is that why you're giving me the silent treatment? Throw me a bone, Daddy! I'll stitch it up real quick, and we can play together like we used to! OK?
Kaden: ...
Selkie: Hmph. If you're going to be like THAT, I'm not giving you the scarf back. I almost thought it might bring you back to me, but I'm not that naive... I haven't seen you in too long, Daddy. I wanna rassle like the old days. The deal is, if I win, you have to go back to normal. Don't worry if I mess up your face, though. I'll forget about it anyway. Then I'll hold you tight, like I always do when I haven't seen you in forever! 'Kay? 'Kay! Let's go!

Sophie vs. Silas

Sophie: Avel?! Whoa, there! What's wrong? Why did you rear up all of a sudden? Did you see somebody? *gasp*
Silas: ...
Sophie: Daddy...I never thought I'd see you again. Especially not looking like this. Our days practicing together seem so far away now. Remember how frustrated you got with Avel? Haha, he always was a handful. But he's a good boy deep down. He behaved himself this whole trip! He's been obeying me and really pulling his weight during our fights. He wants to save you just as much as I do! So come back, Daddy! Let's go home together and train like we used to!
Silas: ...
(Avel neighs)
Sophie: Avel... I'm sorry. I'm falling apart a little. But I'm OK. I'll keep fighting for your sake until I can't anymore. It's time for me to show you how good I've gotten with Avel, Daddy. En garde!

Kiragi vs. Takumi

Kiragi: Dad! Is that really you?
Takumi: ...
Kiragi: This is great! I thought I'd never see you again! Guess what? I made a bunch of new friends, AND I figured out how to use the Fujin Yumi! I was pretty excited to show you what I've learned and see what you think. I'm not expecting you to gush. I know you're not great at expressing yourself. But I love you, Dad. If I can make you crack a smile, that'll be plenty. Uh... This is getting awkward, Dad. Are you ever going to say something?
Takumi: ...
Kiragi: Dad... I get it. It'll be alright. I'll get you back to the way you were before. Just make sure that when I jump into your arms with joy, you catch me, OK?

Hisame vs. Hinata

Hisame: Am I seeing things, or...
Hinata: ...
Hisame: Father...so they did get you back there in the Deeprealm. That must have been humiliating for a man who hates to lose so much. Sorry...it's my fault, I guess. You can blame me if you want to. I don't mind, because I'm fixing to fix it, along with my friends here. Before long, I won't recollect what I did here, mind you. But you might. So next time we meet, give me a pat on the head and tell me I did good. I promise I won't recoil in disgust the way I usually do.
Hinata: ...
Hisame: Here goes nothing. It's been a while since we sparred, hasn't it? I don't recall ever winning, but I've come a long way during this nonsense. My sword won't falter no matter who I'm fighting! Prepare for battle!

Forrest vs. Leo

Forrest: That is you, Father, and not your shade?
Leo: ...
Forrest: I'm so sorry, Father. You wouldn't be in this state if you hadn't fought valiantly for me. I've taken up the Brynhildr, which you dropped in my Deeprealm, by the by. Yet when all this is over, I will forget all that I've done here, including that. This may be your only chance to see me wield it properly. Ironic, no? So look closely, please. And if at all possible, remember me this way.
Leo: ...
Forrest: Gods...if my prayers reach your ears, then please keep my father safe. Let me use this divine tome to protect him until the day I truly inherit it. Enough of my prattle, though, hmm? I will have my father back and return to him the sacred tome that is rightly his. When that time comes, I pray he will hug me gently and tell me I did well. And if my plea falls short of the gods, I have faith that it reaches you, Father.

Nina vs. Niles

Nina: Well, this is unpleasant. I doubt I'll be able to scrub THIS from my memory. I'd hoped not to run into you at all, Father.
Niles: ...
Nina: Ugh. What a boring expression. I had hoped for a hint of defeat in your face to make it more interesting. But this...this does nothing for me. I don't care to look at you anymore. Come to that... I hate you, Father. Why did you leave me behind?! If you came to protect me, you should have done a proper job of it! Aren't you going to bother defending yourself?! I'm talking to you!
Niles: ...
Nina: Father... Oh, forget it. I don't owe you anything but an arrow into your hide. I'm not letting you off this time. It's time for you to take your own medicine. And then I'll drag you back home kicking and screaming if I have to.

Mitama vs. Azama

Mitama: Filial duty / One of life's highest virtues / Where did I go wrong? I've been thinking on that subject a lot. I wanted to be a loving daughter. Alas...
Azama: ...
Mitama: Your soul slumbered before ever I had the chance. Death is inevitable, of course. If you had died, I would feel no sorrow. But this... The astral plane's light / Far off, it flickers and dims / Am I still myself?
Azama: ...
Mitama: ...Rest well, Father. As luck would have it, your soul has yet to pass on. Sleepers need only be awoken. As you have done for me so often, I now have the honor of doing for you. I am no longer a lackadaisical maiden. I can hold my own in combat now. This may turn violent, so I ask that you don't call the gods' wrath down on me. I will greet your slumbering spirit with a hearty, wakeful slap!

Ophelia vs. Odin

Ophelia: I had a premonition of this meeting when I first set foot here. It would seem that my precognitive skills have not failed me...
Odin: ...
Ophelia: You told me once that heroes don't die. But I know that for the lie it is. A hero only becomes a hero after passing on. They only attain their full heroic stature after becoming a legend. I sincerely apologize, but I must inform you that you cannot become a hero yet. I won't let that beautiful lie be the last thing you ever say to me. We must clash now. It pains me to do so, and yet I must.
Odin: ...
Ophelia: *deep breath* All right. Hark, O shade! Ophelia Dusk releases you from the chains of the abyss! My numinous spirit quivers eagerly to meet my father in single combat... By the name and magicks given to me, I cast out the darkness from this place! I cast out evil from you, Father!

Shiro vs. Ryoma

Shiro: Dad! Hey, Dad! You look...weird... Don't you recognize me? It's Shiro! You know, your son! Wake up, Dad! Say something!
Ryoma: ...
Shiro: Ughhh...you've got to be kidding me! I finally get the chance to bust out the Raijinto, and now I don't even want to! This is your sword, right? Shouldn't you be yelling at me to give it back? Aren't you gonna say I'm not ready yet? That I'm still too inexperienced! C'mon! Get mad, like you always do!
Ryoma: ...
Shiro: Dammit all! You know I've gotta cut you down now, right? But I'm doing it to save you. I want to hear you laugh again. I want you to mess up my hair, like you did whenever I scored a hit on you. And yeah, it'd be nice even to hear you shout at me again! You're not allowed to die until I've proven myself once and for all, dammit!

Siegbert vs. Xander

Xander: ...
Siegbert: My apologies, Father. I would rather it not have to come to blows with you. But here we are. And you taught me that a prince never flees from hardship. Since coming to this land, I've been anxious over my untrained sword arm. I had my doubts that I could live up to everyone's expectations. Not just my newfound friends', but yours as well. But I have barreled through that anxiety. I can hold my head high and carry this divine weapon with pride. I shall demonstrate to you what I mean.
Xander: ...
Siegbert: I will soon forget all that happened in this realm. But there may be a place in your heart where you remember these events. If you do, then please clasp your hand on my shoulder when we reunite. The shoulder that has wielded Siegfried in your stead. And tell me that everything you remember here was real. Until then...forgive me, Father. I must wield your divine blade against you!

Midori vs. Kaze

Midori: Father! Thank goodness I found you. Are you hurt? Do you need any salve? I brewed a batch just for you.
Kaze: ...
Midori: Father... Oh...I see. My father is too far away for my voice to reach him anymore. Father...my home was destroyed. But that might be a good thing! I couldn't go back with you in such trouble. How could I live with myself? It would be too sad to sit in your chair and stare at the front door waiting.
Kaze: ...
Midori: I'll never give up, Father. I don't need my salves and herbs to save you. Sorry...but this might sting a bit.

Asugi vs. Saizo

Asugi: That is you, right, Dad? Because if it is, wow, have you ever lost your touch for staying concealed. If you don't shape up, you'll disgrace the Saizo name.
Saizo: ...
Asugi: Listen... I want to thank you for what you did. You came to save me, right? If this is what it cost you, then I couldn't ask for a nobler father. You know how I hate responsibility, but all this has kinda convinced me... I'm going to follow your example and become the sixth Saizo. Not that you can hear me, I'm pretty sure. Hell, I'll probably forget about saying it soon anyway. But I had to get it off my chest before we got to it. I mean, if I didn't say it, then it REALLY never happened, right? Yeah...that wouldn't sit right with me.
Saizo: ...
Asugi: Glad you agree. Wanna get the big Fifth vs. Sixth showdown started? Bring it, Dad.

Dwyer vs. Jakob

Dwyer: It's been a while, Father. I thought you might have thoughtlessly died on me. Not going to take the bait? Nothing ever stopped you before. It's very unlike you to stay silent when provoked like that.
Jakob: ...
Dwyer: I always hated you getting the better of me more than anyone. But there's not much I can do about that now, the way you are. Why didn't either of us see what was important at the time? All we did whenever you'd visit is argue and squabble. It's not as if I didn't know there'd be a time you couldn't visit anymore. Even so, I'd think to myself, "It's fine. Father's too bloody-minded to die." Don't I feel foolish now. I had my head buried so deeply in the sand... You knew it, didn't you, Father?
Jakob: ...
Dwyer: Mmm. Well, it's not over yet. We can change things back. There's still time for us. Or so I believe. You see, I can be just as stubborn as you.

Soleil vs. Laslow

Soleil: Dad?! Why do you look like that? Oh no... I guess this means you really did get defeated back there.
Laslow: ...
Soleil: *sniff* I'm sorry! I didn't mean to leave you behind! But then...if you hadn't protected me, I'd never have made these new friends. That's what you wanted for me, right? To see the world—to meet new people. Though I'll be forgetting this soon, so I won't get to tell you all about them. Even so, though... Thanks for giving me this chance, Dad. I wouldn't take back anything you did. None of it was a mistake in my book. And no matter what you do or who's got control of you, I love you anyway.
Laslow: ...
Soleil: Seems pointless to cry, right? You'd want me to smile instead. It won't be like this he next time I see you. We'll smile wide at each other, and you can welcome me home for keeps.

Percy vs. Arthur

Percy: Ace, what do you keep looking at? It's just— Oh! That's... Oh my gosh!
Arthur: ...
Percy: Wait... Pop, no! Why are you on their side?! You're supposed to be a hero! I can't believe you let them take you down!
Arthur: ...
Percy: I'm sorry, Pop. This is my fault. You lost 'cause you didn't have a sidekick! But I'm through crying. It's time for ACTION! Oh, but thanks, though. For letting me and Ace get away back home. Maybe it's silly to think it's not too late to make up for letting you down. But if you can't be a hero anymore, I'm gonna step up and do it for you! We've all been through so much just to get this far. I can do a little more! Come on, Ace! You and me together are gonna save Pop!
