Some believe the dignity of the Empire rests on the
results of the mock battle. That's an overstatement,
Still, we must do our best to prevail.
You should take the time to learn each student's
abilities. Perhaps some extra lessons and training
sessions are in order?
I trust you're eager to face the Black Eagles
Enjoy the thrill of anticipation while it lasts.
Soon you'll wish you had chosen to lead our
I hear there will be a mock battle soon. We must not
neglect our training.
I trust that you will carefully study the strengths and
weaknesses of each of your students, that you may
provide effective guidance.
Regardless of the results, this battle will be a great
learning experience. Even so... What is the point of
competition if the aim isn't to win?
I heard about the upcoming mock battle. I want you
to know, Professor, that I do not intend to lose.
I hereby declare my intention to prevail at...
Goodness, listen to me. The thrill of competition has
carried me away. I won't speak so formally of a class
assignment in the future.
Did you hear the news, Teach? Looks like we're
gonna have a good ol' mock battle between
The Golden Deer House isn't exactly what you'd call
an elite group just yet, so you may want to whip
everyone into shape with some extra training.
After all, competition is only fun if you win.
To that end, I'd better prepare as well.
Hey, Teach! I hear there's gonna be a mock battle
between the houses.
I'm not gonna lie, I'm a bit concerned about facing
an elite mercenary like you. Maybe take it easy
on us, what do you say?
Dimitri and Claude are the leaders of the other two
houses. Do not underestimate them.
When we take the field, it would be best not to
engage the both of them at once.
If you continue to insist on distracting me, I will
have no choice but to get rid of you.
Joking, of course.
Let me tell you the provenance of our class name.
Do you know the provenance of our class name?
The eagle, that refers to the twin-headed eagle on the
Adrestian Empire's coat of arms.
And black is the traditional color of the Empire's
armor, hence, "Black Eagles."
Do you know of the Aegir family? We have long held
the position of Prime Minister in the Empire.
The Empire's power lies with six noble families,
my family foremost among them.
The full explanation may be time-consuming.
I can give you a moment to get ready, if you would
like to take notes.
All right. I will list the six great noble families.
There's Caspar's father, Count Bergliez, the Minister
of Military Affairs. Then there's Linhardt's father,
Count Hevring, the Minister of Domestic Affairs.
Bernadetta's father, Count Varley, is the Minister of
Religious Affairs. Hubert's father, Marquis Vestra, is
the Minister of the Imperial Household.
Finally we have Duke Gerth, the Minister of
Foreign Affairs, and my own father, Duke Aegir,
the Prime Minister.
One day, I will take his place as the Prime Minister
of the Empire.
I am more talented than anyone in my class—
even Edelgard. I will lead the Empire to a bright,
There is nothing I cannot achieve.
The Great Tree Moon is the best time of the year
I could just forget all about my assignment...
Wow, Jeritza sure seems strong.
I kinda thought he was gonna be the new professor
assigned to our class.
After that teacher ran away during our outdoor
training, I figured Jeritza was a natural replacement.
I was surprised when you were suddenly appointed
I don't think I could hold my own against Jeritza in
battle. I could probably take you though.
You really think so? With enough training, I'm sure
I'll beat you someday!
Hah! Seriously? You should really work on your
self-confidence if you're planning on being
Um. I, ah, was just heading back to my room—bye!
I don't like to come out unless I really have to.
Hope you're OK with that, Professor!
Hi, Professor. How're you doing?
If you're not busy, would you like to join me
on a little trip into town?
If I'm cooped up in this dusty old monastery for too
long, it drives me absolutely crazy.
Yes, it's true that I'm the only commoner in the
Black Eagle House.
I knew that before the first day of class. Those people
are simply exhausting.
Professor. I hope you know I am having great
abilities for reading and writing. With sadness,
I still have struggles with speaking.
If my ways of speak...of speech are causing a burden,
I hope you will have forgiveness.
Here at the monastery, I have had many great
learnings from many great people.
I am hopeful to have learnings from you too.
As forever, I will do my best trying!
His Highness has said that he trusts you, and I have
no cause for doubt.
But if you mistreat him in any way, I will take action.
Let me know when you are hungry.
I will make you a quality meal, as thanks for your
service to His Highness.
I'm busy. Do you want something?
I can't right now, but let's fight soon. I look forward
to beating you.
Then get out of my way.
You should try looking around the greenhouse
sometime, if the mood strikes you. Maybe something
will catch your eye!
Oh, did you come to look at the plants too?
The greenhouse here is really incredible.
There are so many rare flowers I'd never seen back
home. And herbs I never even knew existed!
That's normal. They all looked the same to me
before I really studied them.
My adoptive father is the real expert. He taught me
everything I know about herbs, including how to tell
them apart and how to make medicines.
Hey, Professor. If you've got spare time, want to join
me for a trip into town?
We could try to pick up beautiful girls... Or not.
I'm kidding! Don't look at me like that.
There's an inn that serves the most amazing food.
It's one of my favorite places to eat. You simply
must come try it with me.
Well, there's Dorothea, Hilda, and Mercedes. Lady
Rhea's quite the beauty too. And I must admit, I've
even checked out Professor Manuela once or twice.
You know, Professor, I think I'm going to like it at
the Officers Academy. There are beautiful girls as
far as the eye can see...
Before I came to the Officers Academy, I attended a
school of magic in the Kingdom capital.
That's where I met Annie! That's what I
Oh. I guess Lorenz was at the school of magic too?
But Annie was always just so nice to me, even though
I was older. She's my best friend in the world.
Hello, Professor! Uh, I have a teeny tiny question
for you, if that's all right...
You haven't seen a man with hair the same color
as mine, a scowling face, and a generally gloomy
Well, yes. It's a bit difficult to explain... Please just
let me know if you do see him, OK?
I suppose it was silly to ask. Sorry for wasting
The Blue Lion House derived its name from the
honorary title of the first king of Faerghus.
Loog, the King of Lions, wore brilliantly blue
garments. His chivalric exploits are recorded
in multiple legends.
The library holds various historical accounts
regarding him and the Blue Lions.
If you find time, you should read them. They're filled
Our house is that of the Golden Deer. Do you know
the significance of that name, Professor?
Golden Deer are sacred creatures said to have
protected Leicester since time immemorial.
All three of the houses have a meaning behind their
name. You should feel free to ask around, if that sort
of knowledge interests you.
It is the duty of every Fódlan noble to demonstrate
piety toward Seiros.
Have you also come to offer your prayers to
the goddess, Professor?
You don't sound terribly sure. Perhaps you are not of
noble birth? After all, devotion is not as essential for
I see. The truth is, I am not a particularly devoted
believer either. But it would be unbecoming for a
noble like me to neglect his prayers, wouldn't it?
Ugh. I really need to eat. I can't hold out until the
Why can't the dining hall stay open all the time?
I need to keep eating if I want to get stronger!
Have you memorized everyone's names yet?
I'm Ignatz, in case you forgot. I'm looking forward to
learning from you.
This is the Golden Deer House. You're in charge
of a different house, right?
Too bad we won't see more of each other. I'm happy
to learn from you, if the opportunity comes up!
Hi, Professor. Have you gotten around to visiting the
It's absolutely loaded with valuable information.
I only wish I wasn't burdened with the necessity
of sleep, so I could spend all my hours there.
In a manner, yes. But it's more that I want to learn
as much as I possibly can.
Please don't treat me like a child. I may be a bit
younger than the others, but that really shouldn't
Goddess, I pray to thee... Please protect us...
Oh. Hello, Professor...
Um. Was there something you needed?
Oh! You like horses? I like them too.
They're such kind creatures.
I see. I won't bother you then...
So, about the mock battle that's coming up...you
don't mind me sitting it out, do you?
As a fragile maiden, I'm useless in battle. I'll just
cheer everyone on instead!
Oh, Professor! Have you adjusted to life at the
Me, I'm still not used to it. I'm not one for all this
studying and training.
I'm Captain Jeralt's first and best apprentice. I can
beat anyone, Professor. Even you, if I have to!
It may have been only for a short time, but I learned
from the absolute best.
These are the students' quarters. To better help you
supervise them, you also have a room here. Your
room is here at the end.
Commoner students also reside on the first floor,
while the second is primarily for students of
As a rule, we try to avoid discrimination based on
social status here. But the nobility can be quite
insistent when it comes to matters of propriety.
Speaking of, it would be best for you to avoid
improper conduct. I expect you to set a good
example for the students.
Hello there, Professor.
Well, I call you that, but I am afraid I am not
a student here myself...
Should the opportunity arise, I would love to become
a student and begin my studies in earnest.
My brother would not be pleased if he heard you
saying such things.
The monastery is kind enough to provide a sanctuary
for my brother and I. He's the only family I have.
Apparently there is to be a mock battle between the
houses. Interesting, but I hope you understand that
I have far more important things on my mind.
My research is proceeding slower than I would like.
Your Crest is something of a challenge. Frustrating.
Yet, also, quite intriguing.
I was wondering if I might get a sample of your flesh.
A couple square inches would do. No? Perhaps some
blood? A couple of drops on the device are all I need.
Oh, thank you, Professor. Those few drops of blood
are invaluable to my research! Oh, so much more
A mock battle? This early? Wow, Professor. They're
not giving you any time to settle in, are they?
Don't you worry though! Should you get injured,
I will care for you all through your recuperation.
I will see to you oh-so very, very, personally.
Well, no need to worry. If you get hurt, I am more
than capable of healing you. You'll not even have
Captain Jeralt has hardly changed since 20 years ago.
I've aged at least three times as much as he has!
Why am I talking about this? Oh, right, it was
because I just overheard Tomas remarking
on the subject.
The leader of a legendary group of knights, returned.
People are bound to be talking about the ol' captain!
I'm a little busy.
If you're looking for the greenhouse, it's right there.
See it? Looks like a greenhouse? That's it.
I really can't right now, I got a lot of things to do.
Work and stuff like that. Why don't you look at the
flowers in the greenhouse instead? They're pretty.
The church has changed a lot since my time.
Seteth, Hanneman, Manuela, Jeritza, and many
of the knights...
None of them were around 20 years ago.
Have you met Leonie yet? Apparently it was my
influence that inspired her to leave her village.
Sorry to burden you, but could you watch over her
for me? She's the only apprentice I've ever had.
Do bear in mind that even as you are appraising
your students, they are appraising you as well.
I hope that you will do your best to form lasting
bonds with your flock.
Oh, and I look forward to witnessing your prowess in
the mock battle.
I care nothing of friendship.
If you have no business here, leave.
You look bored. Care to duel?
Problem? I just wanted to spar...
Professor, I hear you are lacking in knowledge
of the Church of Seiros.
The library contains countless documents about the
teaching and the history of the church. I encourage
you to make good use of them.
Greetings, Professor! Nothing to report!
By the by, have you ever regretted a decision
and wished you could go back and undo it?
It's too bad there's no lesson for how to turn back
the ol' clock, huh? But I suppose a bad decision isn't
worth all that fuss anyhow!
Things we can't obtain here are likely obtainable by
way of the underground.
Are you unfamiliar with Garreg Mach's
underground? The place is an absolute paradise
for those who can't stay above ground.
Those Abyssian idiots. All they ever do is
We'd best purge the entire underbelly of
Tomas has served as the monastery's librarian
Actually, he was away from Garreg Mach for a spell,
but he returned to his post last year.
There is no one as familiar with the monastery's
archives as he is.
The Imperial princess, the crown prince, and the
heir to the Alliance's leading house... This is one
exceptional year, that's for sure.
If you're a teacher here, you'd better watch your step.
If anything were to happen to those kids...
Well, suffice to say that it could harm the reputation
of the Church of Seiros, which we've spent almost
a millennium establishing.
As part of our commitment to the goddess, the
knights undertake various missions across all
Assisting with the education of young nobles is also
a part of our sacred duty.
I hear a member of House Hresvelg, the ruling
family of the Empire, has entered the Officers
Academy for the first time in ages.
It is said that the Adrestian Empire's very founding
was aided by none other than Saint Seiros.
That is why the Crest of Seiros is on the
In recent years, a rift has developed between
the Empire and the church...
Let us hope this will be a good opportunity for
both parties to reforge their close relationship
of years past.
I'm not too keen on the professor of my class.
I really hoped to focus more on strategy.
Hmm, maybe I should talk to my professor about
transferring to a different class...
There are two types of Crests. Major Crests manifest
their power most effectively, while Minor Crests are
It is said that the closer a person's blood relation is
to various saints and Heroes, the higher their chance
of bearing a Major Crest.
Of course, there are also examples of Major Crests
manifesting in children whose parents bear no
The exact nature of how and why Crests are
inherited is still a mystery.
Whoever you are, it doesn't matter much to me.
But I do advise getting out of here before you get
tangled up in trouble.
Unless you've been sent here under someone's
orders. In which case, I'll happily show you a good
time. Heh heh...
Hmmm. You're that mercenary turned professor,
aren't you? The one who showed up at the monastery
Yeah, you're the one I've heard so much about.
Well, I guess it's fine you're here, then.
You can call me Yuri. You'll want to remember that,
if you ever come down here again.
Haven't seen your face before. You're clearly not
from around here.
Ah, you're that new teacher everyone's been yapping
about. And yet...you look younger than me. Weird.
The name's Balthus. Formerly of the Alliance.
And who might you be? Not an Abyssian, that much
is clear at a glance.
A visitor from above, perhaps? With what purpose?
Oh...but of course. You must be the new teacher
specially appointed by Lady Rhea. That is it, yes?
Rumors have been flying underground about you.
Well, then! I am Constance von Nuvelle.
It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance.
Who are you? Wait, shut up, let me guess.
You're...that new professor, right? You just started
teaching up on the surface.
Even here, people have been talking about you.
Not that the gossip got everything right.
I heard you were beautiful, but obviously that was
Hey, Professor. How's it going? Making lots of coin?
I'd love to catch up, but I'm super busy right now.
Working. For money. You understand.
There's unrest everywhere these days. All of my
fellow merchants seem to be endangered.
I hope things go back to normal soon. People need
more to smile about, aside from my great deals.
Abyss? You're interested in that place, are you?
Ancient sprawling remains deep below
Garreg Mach... That's Abyss.
Some folks have made their home there. Obviously
they all have their reasons and tales to tell.
But only the most enterprising merchant
would venture near it. My advice? Avoid
going there yourself.
Hey, you. You're from up top, right?
What business do you have here?
Wait a minute... Ah, got it. You're that new
professor, aren't you? I suppose that means I
have to let you pass.
I guess...welcome to Abyss! This town is full of
rough-and-toughs, so watch your back down here.
Ah, I see. So you are Jeralt's child. You so resemble
I did indeed. I was acquainted with your parents.
I've been wanting to speak with you for a while now.
I am nothing more than a common monk. I knew
your parents...once upon a time.
I've been gone from the monastery for some time
now because... Well, it matters not.
Might I...ask a favor of you?
Do you mind terribly picking up some fresh flowers
to place upon your mother's grave?
I am certain she'd be deeply moved to receive a gift
Thank you so much. This is just the type of flower
she once loved so dearly.
I can rest easy now.
I must be off. Take especially good care of yourself,
Please, look after Jeralt. She'd have wanted that.
