Ha ha! I knew I liked ye the moment I set eyes on ye...er... What did ye say yer name was again?
Forename Surname! A name fit fer a hero if ever I heard one! In fact, I reckon I did hear it in a bard's song once! ...Or was it that poor sod cursin' in his cups at the Wench?
Bah! Don't matter if it was savin' the world or beddin' someone's mother─'tis time to forge yerself a new reputation, pound out a new legend! An' ye can trust ol' Brithael to help ye do it!
But there I go, puttin' the cart before the chocobo. Here, lad─take this cross-pein hammer. A smitty without a hammer is like me without a drink─bloody useless!
Well, don't jus' stand there gawpin' at her. Take her in yer hands, have a few practice swings, whatever ye fancy! She's all yours now.
Ah, what I wouldn't give to be you right now, lad
. A smitty never forgets his first hammer... <sniff>
