Death Knight
They broke through the main gate...
Death Knight
Trample them. All save...that man...
Dimitri
Even though we smashed the main gate, Fort Merceus is still an ironclad fortress.
Dimitri
And the enemy commander is the Death Knight. We must not falter in our assault!

Death Knight
Trample them. All save...that woman...
Dimitri
Even though we smashed the main gate, Fort Merceus is still an ironclad fortress.
Dimitri
And the enemy commander is the Death Knight. We must not falter in our assault!

Dimitri
I now see why they call this keep impregnable. Everywhere you turn is defensive weaponry.
Dimitri
We must capture all of those locations as we push forward. If even one of them takes a shot at you, we will be in trouble.
link
Death Knight
Western units, reinforce the east side...
link
Death Knight
Eastern units, advance to the front line...
link
Gilbert
Worrisome. They have a leader capable of summoning reinforcements.
Gilbert
If we find and strike down that person, we can prevent further interruptions.
link
Gilbert
There will be no further reinforcements from this side. However, the other side is still in action.
Dimitri
If they call in more reinforcements, we'll be in great danger. We must take down the other commander as well and fast.
link
Dimitri
Good. Now we should not have to worry about any more reinforcements crashing the party.
link
Death Knight
Fools. Push forward and surround them...
link
Dimitri
The enemy general has been vanquished! Everyone, move to gain control of the keep!
Dimitri
Victory is ours! Raise the banner of the knights. May it soar proudly over the impregnable fortress!
link
Mercedes
Oh! I have to meet... I have to meet Emile!

Battle Dialog

link
Death Knight
You're stronger now. Whether I kill you or you kill me, I'm looking forward to this!
link
Death Knight
You dare stand between me and my pleasure?
link
Dimitri
Yes. I dare stand against you, Death Knight.
link
Death Knight
Death is all that remains...
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
Mercedes
I came here to get you. Let's return together...Emile.
link
Death Knight
Leave. The place of your death is not here...
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

Linhardt

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...
