Edelgard (Recruited)

Some believe the dignity of the Empire rests on the results of the mock battle. That's an overstatement, of course.

Edelgard (Recruited)

Still, we must do our best to prevail.

Edelgard (Recruited)

You should take the time to learn each student's abilities. Perhaps some extra lessons and training sessions are in order?

Edelgard (Not Recruited)

I trust you're eager to face the Black Eagles in battle.

Edelgard (Not Recruited)

Enjoy the thrill of anticipation while it lasts. Soon you'll wish you had chosen to lead our house instead.

Dimitri

Dimitri (Recruited)

I hear there will be a mock battle soon. We must not neglect our training.

Dimitri (Recruited)

I trust that you will carefully study the strengths and weaknesses of each of your students, that you may provide effective guidance.

Dimitri (Recruited)

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?

Dimitri (Not Recruited)

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...

Dimitri (Not Recruited)

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.

Claude

link
Claude (Recruited)

Did you hear the news, Teach? Looks like we're gonna have a good ol' mock battle between the houses!

Claude (Recruited)

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.

Claude (Recruited)

After all, competition is only fun if you win. To that end, I'd better prepare as well.

Claude (Not Recruited)

Hey, Teach! I hear there's gonna be a mock battle between the houses.

Claude (Not Recruited)

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?

Hubert

link
Hubert (Recruited)

Dimitri and Claude are the leaders of the other two houses. Do not underestimate them.

Hubert (Recruited)

When we take the field, it would be best not to engage the both of them at once.

Hubert (Not Recruited)

If you continue to insist on distracting me, I will have no choice but to get rid of you.

Hubert (Not Recruited)

Joking, of course.

Ferdinand

link
Ferdinand (Recruited)

Let me tell you the provenance of our class name.

Ferdinand (Not Recruited)

Do you know the provenance of our class name?

Ferdinand

The eagle, that refers to the twin-headed eagle on the Adrestian Empire's coat of arms.

Ferdinand

And black is the traditional color of the Empire's armor, hence, "Black Eagles."

link
Ferdinand

Do you know of the Aegir family? We have long held the position of Prime Minister in the Empire.

Ferdinand

The Empire's power lies with six noble families, my family foremost among them.

Ferdinand

The full explanation may be time-consuming. I can give you a moment to get ready, if you would like to take notes.

Ferdinand

All right. I will list the six great noble families.

link
Ferdinand

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.

Ferdinand

Bernadetta's father, Count Varley, is the Minister of Religious Affairs. Hubert's father, Marquis Vestra, is the Minister of the Imperial Household.

Ferdinand

Finally we have Duke Gerth, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, and my own father, Duke Aegir, the Prime Minister.

Ferdinand

One day, I will take his place as the Prime Minister of the Empire.

Ferdinand

I am more talented than anyone in my class— even Edelgard. I will lead the Empire to a bright, enlightened future.

Ferdinand

There is nothing I cannot achieve.

Caspar

Caspar

Wow, Jeritza sure seems strong.

Caspar

I kinda thought he was gonna be the new professor assigned to our class.

Caspar

After that teacher ran away during our outdoor training, I figured Jeritza was a natural replacement.

Caspar

I was surprised when you were suddenly appointed professor instead.

Caspar

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!

Caspar

Hah! Seriously? You should really work on your self-confidence if you're planning on being a professor.

Bernadetta

Bernadetta (Not Recruited)

Um. I, ah, was just heading back to my room—bye!

Bernadetta

I don't like to come out unless I really have to.

Hope you're OK with that, Professor!

Dorothea

Dorothea (Recruited)

Hi, Professor. How're you doing?

Dorothea (Recruited)

If you're not busy, would you like to join me on a little trip into town?

Dorothea (Recruited)

If I'm cooped up in this dusty old monastery for too long, it drives me absolutely crazy.

Dorothea (Not Recruited)

Yes, it's true that I'm the only commoner in the Black Eagle House.

Dorothea (Not Recruited)

I knew that before the first day of class. Those people are simply exhausting.

Petra

Petra (Recruited)

Professor. I hope you know I am having great abilities for reading and writing. With sadness, I still have struggles with speaking.

Petra (Recruited)

If my ways of speak...of speech are causing a burden, I hope you will have forgiveness.

Petra (Not Recruited)

Here at the monastery, I have had many great learnings from many great people.

Petra (Not Recruited)

I am hopeful to have learnings from you too. As forever, I will do my best trying!

Dedue

Dedue (Recruited)

His Highness has said that he trusts you, and I have no cause for doubt.

Dedue (Recruited)

But if you mistreat him in any way, I will take action.

Dedue (Not Recruited)

Let me know when you are hungry.

Dedue (Not Recruited)

I will make you a quality meal, as thanks for your service to His Highness.

You should try looking around the greenhouse sometime, if the mood strikes you. Maybe something will catch your eye!

link
Ashe

Oh, did you come to look at the plants too? The greenhouse here is really incredible.

Ashe

There are so many rare flowers I'd never seen back home. And herbs I never even knew existed!

Ashe

That's normal. They all looked the same to me before I really studied them.

Ashe

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.

Ashe

Sylvain

Sylvain (Recruited)

Hey, Professor. If you've got spare time, want to join me for a trip into town?

Sylvain (Recruited)

We could try to pick up beautiful girls... Or not. I'm kidding! Don't look at me like that.

Sylvain (Recruited)

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.

Sylvain (Not Recruited)

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.

Sylvain (Not Recruited)

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...

Mercedes

Mercedes

Before I came to the Officers Academy, I attended a school of magic in the Kingdom capital.

Mercedes

That's where I met Annie! That's what I call Annette.

Mercedes

Oh. I guess Lorenz was at the school of magic too?

Mercedes

But Annie was always just so nice to me, even though I was older. She's my best friend in the world.

Annette

Annette

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 demeanor...have you?

Well, yes. It's a bit difficult to explain... Please just let me know if you do see him, OK?

Annette

I suppose it was silly to ask. Sorry for wasting your time!

Ingrid

link
Ingrid

The Blue Lion House derived its name from the honorary title of the first king of Faerghus.

Ingrid

Loog, the King of Lions, wore brilliantly blue garments. His chivalric exploits are recorded in multiple legends.

Ingrid

The library holds various historical accounts regarding him and the Blue Lions.

Ingrid

If you find time, you should read them. They're filled with insights.

Lorenz

link
Lorenz

Our house is that of the Golden Deer. Do you know the significance of that name, Professor?

Lorenz

Golden Deer are sacred creatures said to have protected Leicester since time immemorial.

Lorenz

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.

link
Lorenz

It is the duty of every Fódlan noble to demonstrate piety toward Seiros.

Lorenz

Have you also come to offer your prayers to the goddess, Professor?

Lorenz

You don't sound terribly sure. Perhaps you are not of noble birth? After all, devotion is not as essential for a commoner.

Lorenz

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?

Raphael

Raphael

Ugh. I really need to eat. I can't hold out until the next meal!

Raphael

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?

Ignatz (Recruited)

I'm Ignatz, in case you forgot. I'm looking forward to learning from you.

Ignatz (Not Recruited)

This is the Golden Deer House. You're in charge of a different house, right?

Ignatz (Not Recruited)

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 library yet?

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 factor in.

Marianne

Oh! You like horses? I like them too. They're such kind creatures.

Marianne

I see. I won't bother you then...

Hilda

Hilda (Recruited)

So, about the mock battle that's coming up...you don't mind me sitting it out, do you?

Hilda (Recruited)

As a fragile maiden, I'm useless in battle. I'll just cheer everyone on instead!

Hilda (Not Recruited)

Oh, Professor! Have you adjusted to life at the academy yet?

Hilda (Not Recruited)

Me, I'm still not used to it. I'm not one for all this studying and training.

Leonie

Leonie

I'm Captain Jeralt's first and best apprentice. I can beat anyone, Professor. Even you, if I have to!

Leonie

It may have been only for a short time, but I learned from the absolute best.

Seteth

link
Seteth

These are the students' quarters. To better help you supervise them, you also have a room here. Your room is here at the end.

Seteth

Commoner students also reside on the first floor, while the second is primarily for students of noble birth.

Seteth

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.

Seteth

Speaking of, it would be best for you to avoid improper conduct. I expect you to set a good example for the students.

Flayn

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.

Flayn

The monastery is kind enough to provide a sanctuary for my brother and I. He's the only family I have.

Hanneman

Hanneman

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.

Hanneman

My research is proceeding slower than I would like. Your Crest is something of a challenge. Frustrating. Yet, also, quite intriguing.

Hanneman

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.

link
Hanneman

Oh, thank you, Professor. Those few drops of blood are invaluable to my research! Oh, so much more to learn!

Manuela

link
Manuela

A mock battle? This early? Wow, Professor. They're not giving you any time to settle in, are they?

Manuela

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.

Manuela

Well, no need to worry. If you get hurt, I am more than capable of healing you. You'll not even have a scar.

Captain Jeralt has hardly changed since 20 years ago.

Alois

I've aged at least three times as much as he has!

Greetings, Professor! Nothing to report!

Gatekeeper

By the by, have you ever regretted a decision and wished you could go back and undo it?

Well, suffice to say that it could harm the reputation of the Church of Seiros, which we've spent almost a millennium establishing.

That is why the Crest of Seiros is on the Imperial flag.

There are two types of Crests. Major Crests manifest their power most effectively, while Minor Crests are slightly weaker.

Monk

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.

Monk

Of course, there are also examples of Major Crests manifesting in children whose parents bear no Crest whatsoever.

Monk

The exact nature of how and why Crests are inherited is still a mystery.
