Gaius Julius Caesar

Nostalgic Merrits

Caesar: –So nostalgic.

Caesar: It's easy to end with just that one phrase, but I don't do that. Do you know why?

Fujimaru 1: (shake head)

Mash: Right Senpai, I don't understand his ideas either.

Fou: Fou...

Fujimaru 2: (nod)

Mash: Senpai, you can understand the idea behind his words. But I...

Fou: Fou...

Caesar: I achieved valor in Gaul and Britannia. That is a fact, and it was written down as well.

Caesar: I guess you could say that I was young. But, that was not all.

Caesar: I escaped. It felt slightly better to preoccupy myself with service by sword than the schemes surging through Rome.

Caesar: Betrayal for betrayal, conspiracy for conspiracy. It's easy for me to climb the ladder of power as such.

Caesar: After all–

Caesar: I am a descendant of the goddess of love and beauty, and a man who fathered a child with a female fairy.

Caesar: My beauty makes women fall into my hands at will. Add in my intelligence and I'm the best at scheming.

Caesar: But...

Mash: ...

Fujimaru 1: Beauty?

Fujimaru 2: He said beauty, right?

Fou: Fou.

Caesar: Actually, scheming takes quite a bit of courage. At first you feel nothing, but gradually. Gradually.

Caesar: While I bite into juicy grapes, while I fool around with women, political enemies die off by my schemes–

Caesar: But when it's being repeated over and over, you start to feel sick, as if something's been tainted.

Caesar: That is why, at times, I escaped to the battlefield.

Mash: ...I now finally understand. Gaius Julius Caesar.

Mash: You seek to settle all the escaping you did right here and right now.

Caesar: That's right. I–wait, enemies. They must have noticed us.

Dr. Roman: Enemy signatures are approaching! Is this like, remnants of the United Empire army?

Dr. Roman: Rome should be correcting itself now, so why are there United Empire soldiers still left?

Caesar: I'll tell you later. Before that Fujimaru, hurry up and drive them off.

Caesar: I will take command for you. I am a great commander.

Fujimaru 1: Caesar, you fight too!

Fujimaru 2: You're a Saber and you're hanging back?

Caesar: Saber, right, Saber. Saber. By rights I shouldn't even be in the Saber class.

Caesar: ...I only unsheathe my sword when I'm next to a beauty.

Mash: Why look at me...

Caesar: Not knowing your own beauty is equal to a crime, yes? Well anyways, I shall unsheathe my sword. Oh, brother–


Caesar: ...I guess that's it. Makes me sick.

Caesar: Wielding a sword like this gets me fired up with nostalgia. Though, swordfights are the epitome of nuisances.

Caesar: I seem to be escaping even now that I am a Heroic Spirit. How pathetic!

Fujimaru 1: Why are you so angry?

Fujimaru 2: Despite the lack of scheming?

Mash: Yes, Senpai's question is legitimate. Caesar, what is upsetting you?

Mash: You are already a Heroic Spirit, unrelated to the bloodstained schemes of ancient Rome.

Mash: And still... You end up returning to Rome with us, why?

Caesar: I've said it many times. It is to escape.

Caesar: To put it nicely, it's to settle things. Oh, it also answers this Doctor guy's question.

Dr. Roman: You mean these United Empire remnants? For some reason, they're still around...

Dr. Roman: Whoa, another enemy attack as we speak! Is this area under the United Empire influence?

Caesar: Right.

Dr. Roman: What?

Fou: Fou!

Mash: We're entering combat, Master! Your orders, please!


Mash: –Battle complete. Soldiers perceived as United Empire are retreating.

Caesar: After them. If they're headed home, it'll save us the trouble of searching.

Mash: Search? Search for what–

Caesar: I'll go on ahead.

Mash: Please wait– Oh, h-he's fast!

Fujimaru 1: He's pretty nimble for his size.

Fujimaru 2: I expect nothing less from a Saber.

Mash: Y-Yes... No, well–

Dr. Roman: You guys should chase them, too! I don't know what he'll do, but you can't abandon him!

Fujimaru 1: Understood!

Mash: Yes.

Mash: We've caught up. Caesar is right there–

Caesar: You're finally here. Perfect, you can see me face my own foolishness.

Mash: Face?

Fou: Fou?

???: ...I am a distinguished general of Rome.

???: I'm the general that conquered Gaul, and made a successful expedition to Britannia.

???: I slaughtered the great general Pompey. I'm the only ruler of Rome, the origin of its Emperor.

???: I danced within the cruelty of Rome, and also danced in the battlefield.

???: I shall continue fighting. As long as Rome exists, my dance continues.

Caesar: No, that horrible dance ends here. This is the end of your escapism.

Caesar: A general? The origin of Emperor? That is quite absurd!

Caesar: You are merely escaping! You pig!

Caesar: You could not grant the wish of the one woman you loved, and you chose not to name your loving child as your heir!

???: I am! I am Caesar! The origin of all Roman Emperors!

Caesar: That's right, you are me! My unsightly half that still clings onto Rome!

Dr. Roman: I see, I get it now! Residual effects of the Second Holy Grail is what "that" is!

Dr. Roman: So that's why it's leading the United Empire remnants. In other words, "that" is like Caesar's shadow!

Dr. Roman: He sensed its presence, and guided you guys all the way here–!

Fujimaru 1: He could have just said so.

Fujimaru 2: That is indeed hard to mention.

Mash: ...Yes.

Caesar: I apologize, beautiful friends. I'd like to defeat my ugly escapism half right here.

Caesar: ...No, I want to return it to myself. Lend me your powers.

Fujimaru 1: Understood!

Mash: Yes, Senpai!

???: Oh... Ooooh! I am! I am Caesar! I am!

Caesar: Shut up, you pig! Such ugliness will scatter like flower petals before my beauty!


Caesar: ...Begone my foolish past.

Mash: Confirming zero response. Battle's over, Senpai.

Fou: Fou...

Caesar: Whew, I'm tired. Indeed, I am not fit to fight at the front line.

Caesar: Let us hurry back to this Chaldea and rest. I won't move one step further.

Fujimaru 1: ...

Fujimaru 2: Thanks for the hard work.

Mash: Thank you for your hard work. Senpai, Doctor, please start the return process to Chaldea.

Fou: Fou!

Dr. Roman: Yes, yes, return– Hmm? Looks like Caesar's magical capacity has increased?

Dr. Roman: After defeating his own shadow, he absorbed it as his own magical energy I guess?

Fou: Fou, Fou!

Dr. Roman: Yes, yes, the return process. You don't have to rush me so much...
