Ares Quotes

“I am the black knight, Ares. Know that all who stand in my way will be naught but stains on the Demon Sword.”

“To think I would meet my father here... He is just as Mother described him. No, better. He is the embodiment of the ideal knight, without question.”

“Successor to the throne of Nordion I may be, yet I have spent all my life living battle to battle, as a mercenary. I suppose that's why surroundings such as these feel so unnatural to me...”

“I see you wandering back and forth, back and forth... With battle ahead of you, you ought to use this time to rest.”

“It's a waste of time to stand there watching. Train with me. There is no drawback to forging your body.”

“I'm maintaining my blade. Demon Sword though it may be called, it is merely a weapon. You should put some consideration to how you treat that "divine weapon" of yours.”

“I am Ares. I bear a greeting on behalf of <Friend Name>.”

“Now you understand my strength!”

“Mystletainn, the Demon Sword... It thirsts for the blood of men.”

“No... This is not acceptable!”

“You granted me this power... I will show you what I can do with it.”

“Well met, <Player Name>. I will admit that I despised you at first—because you don't fight. I came to realize, though, that you are a warrior in your way, and a fine one at that. Pardon my rudeness. In my thought, I have a tendency toward...rigidity. I've lost loved ones and even raised my sword at friends. Loyalty is what drives a knight to take up arms. However, loyalty can become a prison... It happened to me. You, though... You perceive things from a distance. When I came to understand why you fight... I decided that I would be the blade that destroys your foes. I swear this on Mystletainn, the Demon Sword, and also on my name—Ares, the black knight.”
