Dimitri
Surprise reinforcements... We must defeat them.
link
Hubert
It seems we are just in time. Any later, and Arianrhod may have been lost.
Hubert
Her Majesty was right to send me here.
Dimitri
Hubert. So, you have come here in command of extra troops from the Imperial capital...
Dimitri
I had hoped to take the fort while it was poorly defended, but now...
Dimitri
Well, there is nothing to be done. We must defeat him and then take Arianrhod.
link
Dimitri
Traps have been set throughout Arianrhod to repel invaders who make it inside.
Dimitri
If I remember correctly, there should be devices somewhere that let you deactivate the traps. However...
Dimitri
Arianrhod has been in Imperial hands for a while now. They may have changed how things work.
Dimitri
But there's no point in dawdling. Let's just make a point to disable any devices we come across.
link
Hubert
Did you really think such a transparent maneuver would find me unprepared?
Hubert
Let this be your final lesson. Now!
link
Dimitri
He hid troops in that alleyway, did he? We'll just have to meet them head-on!
link
Hubert
I suppose you thought defeating the troops outside the castle first would demoralize the ones within.
Hubert
Not such a bad idea, honestly. But you failed to account for me.
link
Hanneman
So what if they disable some old contraptions. It's no loss to us.
Hanneman
The city's defenses are under my exclusive control.
Dimitri
So, the system has been modified. The person operating the traps must be elsewhere...
link
Imperial General
No luck, buddy. All the city's defenses are under my control!
Dimitri
So, the system has been modified. The person operating the traps must be elsewhere...
link
Dimitri
Professor Hanneman... That should take care of the traps.
link
Dimitri
That should take care of the traps.
link
Dimitri
Professor Manuela... At least we have stopped the reinforcements.
link
Dimitri
Good. We've cut them off from their reinforcements.
link
Hanneman
If Hubert is gone, then I see no reason to remain. Time to go.
link
Manuela
I've never been one to fight to the death. I'll make a graceful exit while I still can.
link
Imperial General
Lord Hubert was defeated?! Hm... Retreat! Sound the retreat!
link
Dimitri
The Empire troops are withdrawing... This is it.
Dimitri
We failed to get Hubert, but at least we have recaptured Arianrhod.
Dimitri
Let's clean up the wreckage and return to Garreg Mach.
Dimitri
Well done, everyone! The day is ours!

Hubert
First Gronder Field, and now here.
link
Hubert
You certainly have a talent for getting in our way.
link
Hanneman
In the end, I may not have gleaned your secret.
link
Hanneman
Yet, even if I die, someone will follow my work, and another after that. Such is the way of scholarship.
link
Manuela
Oh dear, Professor. Fate can be so cruel.
link
Manuela
Spilling the blood of your students with your own hands... How can you carry on after that?
link
Manuela
You've grown into a fine, handsome man, Dimitri. Bit of a shame you've also become a violent beast.
link
Manuela
Men like you make the Silver Maiden cry.
link
Dimitri
Oh? I suppose it is a shame, Professor Manuela.
link
Dimitri
Perhaps I should have appeared before you holding a bouquet of flowers, rather than the weapon that will end your life.
link
Hubert
Arianrhod is a crucial asset to the Empire. You will not pry it from our grasp.
link
Dorothea
Manuela? It's not like you to show up anywhere sober. What's the occasion?
link
Manuela
I thought maybe we could talk. I could help you see the error of your ways.
link
Manuela
Or we could just try to kill each other over what we believe in. You ready to do this?
link
Dorothea
No... But let's get to it.
link
Hanneman
For the sake of Edelgard, I shall take the liberty of helping.
link
Manuela
I hate to have to kill someone I know...but I have no choice.
