–As part of a new translation mini-series, I’ll be summarizing the child paralogues in Fire Emblem: Fates as I go through Linkmastr’s video gallery of them (as they would take quite a while to get myself)–
This is Paralogue 11, and focuses on Hisame. It is unlocked by S ranking Hinata. It is on the Hoshido and Touma paths only.
As usual, this is all done on my free time, and takes awhile. It can be a lot of work, but I do hope you enjoy! I am unemployed… so please consider donating if you like the work I do. : ) It certainly helps me keep going!
You can find data on the chapter itself here under “Paralogue 11” [P11] here.
Hinata arrives in a secluded realm He spots Hisame, and calls out to him. Hisame greets his father curtly. Hinata wonders why he’s so calm, considering that every time he came before he said that Hisame would come running to greet him. Hinata wonders why Hisame is acting so adult-like today, and then asks if he ate anything weird. Hisame coldly says that is not the case, and that he is just not at the age of being delusional anymore. Hinata says it’s fine to be as he is still a young man, and it is something one steadily grows out of. Hisame says to please not make fun of him, Hinata says he’s not making fun of him, and just talking to him as a father would to his son, and tries to get him to be more playful. Hisame then tells him to cut it out, being a father who visits only occasionally, he would rather not have him in his life at all, and runs off. Hinata wonders what to do, thinking that it is not at all like Hisame was before. He then realizes Hisame is heading toward the exit to the secluded realm, and he chases after him, calling out for him to wait because it’s dangerous, but is ignored.
In a flash of light, Hisame emerges from the secluded realm right into a group of Nosferatu. He wonders what his father would do in this situation, but quickly shakes off the thought, saying it is something he will do on his own, as he cannot be a child forever. He resolves to fight the beasts, and the battle begins.
During the battle, Hinata meets with Hisame, asking if he is okay. Hisame is mildly surprised that his father had come to help him despite the terrible things he said. Hinata says he doesn’t mind at all, saying he is his father after all. Hisame mumbles that his father truly is brave, though Hinata doesn’t seem to hear it, asking him what he said. Hisame says it was nothing important, as Hinata moves on, saying to hide somewhere and leave the fighting to him. Hisame insists he will fight too however, in order to watch his father’s back. Hinata says that is rather brave of him too, and says he is counting on Hisame to watch his back. The two aim to end this together as the battle continues.
After the battle, Hisame is truly thankful for everyone’s aid, and excuses himself, walking away. Hinata asks Hisame where he’s going, and he says back to the secluded realm where block-headed people like him belong. Hinata says that’s not true at all, but Hisame says there is no need for his sympathy. Hinata says it is not a matter of sympathy, and that he is surprised at how much stronger Hisame is than he thought, despite not being raised by his parent directly. Hisame is silent, as Hinata continues, inviting Hinata to join them on their journey. Hisame is shocked, unable to find the words to say, as Hinata then insists he comes with them rather than simply inviting and apologizes for the way he treated Hisame up until now. He understands why Hisame was upset and does not hold it against him. Hinata wishes for Hisame to always be by his side so he can see him truly mature into adulthood. Hisame accepts this, saying they will be together from now on. Hisame mentions his father hasn’t changed at all, always having been kind and passionate. Hinata laughs and says that Hisame’s lovely face hasn’t changed at all either, and starts patting him on the head as Hisame tells him to please let go as his hair is being roughed up, and that he dislikes this sort of crass behavior. Hinata jokingly apologizes, as Hisame wonders if his father can even tell the difference between good and bad. Hinata says that’s just how his father is, then wonders if his son had grown taller, almost to his own height. Hisame quickly makes up an excuse to meet the others, taking his leave, as Hinata yells after him, demanding he come back as a member of this army so they may compare their heights.
