Imperial Soldier
Report! A group posing as Imperial soldiers has infiltrated! They seem to be affiliated with the church!
Death Knight
Close the gates. Leave no survivors.
link
Imperial Soldier
General, reinforcements have arrived from the capital.
Imperial Soldier
They clashed with Alliance forces in the outskirts of the city, but should enter the fortress soon.
Death Knight
You let them in? Make haste and slaughter them all.
Imperial Soldier
Huh? Why?
Death Knight
They are enemies. Slaughter them all. I will not say it again.
Claude
We made it in. Professor, take control from the south.
Claude
I have my own task to do from here. There are preparations to be made for our secret plan.
link
Claude
An impregnable fortress is a wide-open prairie once you get inside. From here, we'll attack from the north and south at once!
Nader
No different than a prairie, you say? Heh! You've got a strange head on your shoulders, kiddo.
Claude
For Nader the Undefeated, this should be as easy as a walk in a meadow, right?
Nader
Heh. Well, goddess or death god or whoever they may be, let's crush them to dust.

Seteth
We've come this far—we cannot let him escape now! Everyone, after the Death Knight!
link
Claude
He's hiding something... It's annoying to do what he's telling us to, but we don't really have a choice. After him!
link
Death Knight
The time is ripe.
link
Seteth
Do not let him get away! Circle around and cut off his retreat!
link
Alliance Soldier
Report! The Death Knight is moving! It looks like they're abandoning the fortress and making an escape!
Claude
We need to put an end to this here and now. Come on, let's circle around and cut off his retreat.
link
Death Knight
The time of ruin draws near... But their slaughter must wait until next we meet...
link
Seteth
He's fled, has he? Let us deal with the remaining foes and then make haste in our pursuit!
link
Alliance Soldier
Report! The Death Knight has escaped the fortress!
Claude
He gave up too easily. Does he have some other plan? Let's deal with the remaining enemies and go after him, quickly!

Battle Dialog

Death Knight
You're stronger now. Whether I kill you or you kill me, I'm looking forward to this!
link
Claude
Hey, how long's it been? Five years? Who'd have thought you'd end up an Imperial general...
link
Death Knight
So, you wish to die.
link
Claude
Heh. As antisocial and unhinged as ever, I see.
link
Seteth
You will not escape, Death Knight. Today you will be unmasked!
link
Death Knight
My true identity has no value.
link
Seteth
I will be the judge of that, once I've seen your face.
link
Flayn
So it's you, Death Knight! Remember me?!
link
Death Knight
You again. Here to lose more blood?
link
Flayn
Never! You will not lay a hand on me ever again!
link
Death Knight
You. Leave.
link
Mercedes
No! I won't! I...I refuse to run from you anymore!
link
Caspar
It's way over my head, and I don't really get what's going on between you and Edelgard.
link
Caspar
I thought for sure you two would come to an understanding, but I guess I was wrong.
link
Linhardt
Ever since returning to the Empire, I knew this day would arrive. I just hoped it might take a bit longer.
link
Linhardt
Ugh...
link
Caspar
Looks like we ended up on opposing sides, Linhardt!
link
Linhardt
Certainly seems that way. I could almost weep over how things turned out.
link
Linhardt
Do you realize, Caspar, that this is the first time we've ever fought?
link
Caspar
Yeah, I think you're right. The first and probably the last!
link
Caspar
Looks like we ended up on opposing sides, Linhardt!
link
Linhardt
Certainly seems that way. I could almost weep over how things turned out.
link
Linhardt
Do you realize, Caspar, that this is the first time we've ever fought?
link
Caspar
Yeah, I think you're right. The first and probably the last!
link
Caspar
Did you have to kill a lot of your friends to get here?
link
Caspar
Cause I'm gonna give this fight everything I've got!
link
Linhardt
I'd rather not fight, yet avoiding it is more frustrating and fruitless than engaging in the battle itself.
link
Death Knight
I have no need of you.
