Hektor

Trojan Guardian

Mash: Master, Hektor would like to ask something.

Hektor: Hey Master, you there?

Hektor: You don't have to be so on edge. I'm your Servant now.


Fujimaru 1: I'm not on edge.


Fujimaru 2: I'm not worried.


Hektor: I see. Good. So anyway, there's something I wanted to talk to you about.

Hektor: Mind if I ask you too, Mash?

Mash: N-Not at all. Go ahead...

Hektor: Okay, well I'll get straight to the point. I'm not using all of my power right now.


Fujimaru 1: Going easy?


Fujimaru 2: You're strong if you tried?


Hektor: Right. Of course, I'm not trying to go easy or anything, and I could be powerful if I tried, you know?

Hektor: But my Noble Phantasm... It's gotten a bit weaker.

Mash: Durandal, right? I think you called it... Durindana, was it?

Hektor: Yeah, that's the name, I think.

Mash: Wouldn't it be better for you to remember its True Name?

Hektor: Well... Ha, ha, ha. To be honest, I don't really care what lance I have as long as I can throw it.

Hektor: It's natural for great swords and lances to break left and right on the battlefield.

Hektor: And even if it didn't break, it's lost once you throw it. So you learn to make do with whatever you've got.

Hektor: To be honest, this old man can even kill someone with a single stone. Whether they're a Heroic Spirit or not.

Hektor: Well, in any event. This lance is legendary in later generations.

Hektor: I need to get it sharpened again, ya'know. Let me see. As long as I can cut down 100 more people with it–

Mash: ...Then how about you do some training in a programmed simulation?

Hektor: A virtual battle, huh? I guess I can't be picky.

Hektor: Master, what do you think? Want to help this old man with some training?


Fujimaru 1: Guess I have to.


Fujimaru 2: Not a problem.


Hektor: Good. Quick answers like that show one's true nature. You're a great Master after all.

Hektor: All right. Let's go.

Mash: Okay, we're here. So about those enemies–

Mash: How about we get started with the humanoid ones first?

Hektor: Okay, we'll use that for warm-up, then. All right Master–give me your orders!

--BATTLE--:

Hektor: I'm starting to get the hang of this. Let's kick it up a notch.

Hektor: Master, add fifty more! Raise the level just a little, too!

Mash: G-Got it. I'll summon some ghost-type enemies next.

Hektor: All right. You can't kill fog by piercing or cutting it–

Hektor: You must scatter it, like a raging storm!

Hektor: Give me your orders, Master!

--BATTLE--:

Hektor: Whew.

Mash: Confirming the elimination of all ghosts. The next set will be the last.

Hektor: If we're on the last set, then bring me a really strong one next.

Hektor: If you want, I can even take on a dragon.

Mash: In that case–I'll summon a dragon-type enemy for you.


Fujimaru 1: Are you serious!?


Fujimaru 2: You're joking, right!?


Mash: Huh? That was a joke? I already started the summoning process!

Hektor: It'll be fine. No problem. My duty is to protect my Master.

Hektor: You know this old man, when it comes to holding the line, guard duty, defense–

Hektor: Basically, anything involving protecting something or someone... I've never lost before.

Hektor: The Achilles thing was different!

Hektor: Now Master, give me your orders! As your shield and fortress–I pledge to fight, yeah?

--BATTLE--:

Mash: I've confirmed its defeat! That was impressive, Hektor.

Hektor: Yeah, yeah. This old man pushed himself a bit too hard. My shoulders and back hurt all over.

Hektor: I think Durindana's got its sharpness back a little. Guess I'll call it good for now.

Hektor: Anyway, let's head back. –Oh, yeah. I guess I can be a bit more useful from now on?


Fujimaru 1: Of course.


Fujimaru 2: Please continue to lend us your strength.


Hektor: I see. Then I'll do the best I can.

Mash: ...I'm not sure if this is the case, but maybe that ocean battle was on Hektor's mind?

Mash: To him it might be the distant past, but to us it's like yesterday.

Mash: So maybe he's trying to show he can be a good Servant...


Fujimaru 1: I trust him.


Mash: ...I suppose you're right. That's what a Servant is, after all.

Mash: He is the one who answered our summons, so I'm sure that's a happy thing and not a troubling matter.

Mash: Let's continue to have him fight by our side.
