Edelgard (Recruited)

Professor, I'm so happy to see you. You're finally returning to your old self.

Edelgard (Recruited)

To see the light in your eyes again is a gift. It inspires me to carry on as well.

Edelgard (Recruited)

As you know, the knights are searching furiously for any trace of the enemies who escaped.

Edelgard (Recruited)

I'll inform you immediately if I learn anything relevant.

Edelgard (Not Recruited)

What happened to Jeralt... It's terrible.

Edelgard (Not Recruited)

If there's anything I can do, simply ask. Even if what you desire is revenge...I'll gladly lend you my power.

Edelgard (Not Recruited)

We can't let them get away with this.

Dimitri

Dimitri (Recruited)

Professor! Welcome back... I was... We all were... You've been on our minds.

Dimitri (Recruited)

Know that your enemies are my enemies. I will do all I can to help you find justice.

Dimitri (Recruited)

There is no one else I can... My strength is yours alone.

Dimitri (Recruited)

I will fight as you command... I will kill anyone should you ask it of me.

Dimitri (Not Recruited)

I'm so sorry about what happened to Jeralt... No...of course my sorrow is nothing compared to yours.

Dimitri (Not Recruited)

The knights are even now searching for our enemies' whereabouts. They are to report back the moment they find something.

Dimitri (Not Recruited)

If you desire revenge, Professor...you can count me in.

Claude

Claude (Recruited)

Hi, Teach. I see the storm in your eyes has passed... You're looking much better.

Claude (Recruited)

I've been reading Jeralt's diary. The baby he mentions... That's you, isn't it?

Claude (Recruited)

I can't understand about half of what's written here...

Claude (Recruited)

But Jeralt really cherished you. That much is clear.

Claude (Not Recruited)

I haven't lost a parent yet, so I can't even begin to understand how you must be feeling...

Claude (Not Recruited)

But even while you're standing still, the world keeps on moving. I always find that oddly comforting.

Hubert

link
Hubert

I've never been much for condolences.

Hubert (Recruited)

How about a little logic, instead?

Hubert (Recruited)

The knights have spread out around Garreg Mach in search of Jeralt's murderers.

Hubert (Recruited)

Thus, the monastery's fighting strength is, for the moment at least, depleted.

Hubert (Recruited)

Perhaps that was the enemy's real objective. We should be prepared for further confrontation.

Ferdinand & Petra

Petra

Professor, please lend us your ears. Ferdinand is saying impossible things.

Ferdinand

I do not see what is impossible about it.

Ferdinand

All I said was that if you want to go back to Brigid, you probably can.

Ferdinand

You are...the Empire's guest, so to speak. They cannot afford for something bad to happen to you—there would be a diplomatic incident.

Ferdinand

Someone close to us has turned up dead, so one could argue that you're not safe here anymore.

link
Petra

You were already told! I am learning here, from the academy. What are you thinking, Professor?

Petra

I am not returning to home until I have grabbed my goal! I will not be listening to the words of Ferdinand.

Ferdinand

No, look, I did not mean to pressure you. Apologies for the misunderstanding.

Linhardt

link
Linhardt

I slipped quietly into the vault and rummaged about, looking for anything we might find useful. There is a group of people who want to kill us, after all.

Linhardt

What? This is no time for asking permission. I learned long ago that one can ask permission or forgiveness. It is rarely useful to request the former.

Linhardt

Still, it appears the knights have already taken everything useful. There were Crest-related objects I thought might be worth studying, so—

Linhardt

There you go again with that stern look. Of course I'll put them back when I'm done. Assuming they bear no additional use.

Caspar

link
Caspar

I'm not even close to being strong enough.

Caspar

I mean, Jeralt was so much stronger than me, but even he...

Caspar

That's enough. I can't dwell on the past. There's no way to know what my future holds, but I do know one thing.

Caspar

Whatever happens, I have to make my own way in this world. I have to keep pushing so I can grow even stronger!

Bernadetta

link
Bernadetta

Professor? I, um, I brought some flowers for Jeralt.

Bernadetta

It's the least I can do. Sometimes I feel like all I do is run away...

Bernadetta (Recruited)

Hey! What's that supposed to mean? I come out for lectures and assignments, don't I?

Bernadetta

Anyway, I'll go lay them out.

I've sung lyrics lamenting death many times on stage...

Sir Jeralt must have been very proud to have you as his child.

Dedue

It is a shame what happened to Jeralt.

Dedue

I am sorry. There are no words.

Leave some flowers on his grave for me.

Felix & Sylvain

Sylvain

Dark expressions don't suit you, Professor. But I'm... Well, I'm glad to see you out in the world again.

Sylvain

It seems this month will be a quiet one around here. There aren't many knights around to liven things up.

Felix

Most of the knights are gone, seeking out the enemy.

Sylvain

Isn't that a bit much? I agree it's important, but is it a good idea to neglect the safety of the monastery?

Felix

What do you think, Professor?

Felix

I agree. We can send some knights after our enemies, but so many? It makes the church seem reckless.

Sylvain

Hopefully the knights finish their business and hurry back. I wouldn't mind having a few extra lances around.

Ashe

Ashe

Not just Tomas, but Monica too.

Ashe

We can't be sure who to trust anymore, can we?

Ashe

Who are these people, really? What do they want?

Mercedes & Annette

Mercedes

I'm so glad you're OK, Professor. I was so worried!

Annette

Oh, Professor! You must be starving. Mercie and I made some sweets for you.

Annette

We were thinking that if you were to eat something sweet, it might help you feel better.

Mercedes

Baking sweets is my specialty. I'm sure they'll do the trick.

Annette

Well, of course you are! And if you have some sweets, you'll be even more fine!

Ingrid

Ingrid

I'm so sorry... I never quite know what to say at times like these...

Ingrid

Just...don't push yourself too hard too soon. It's OK to allow yourself to be sad right now.

Ingrid

Losing someone dear to you... Well, each loss is unique, but it's a feeling I know very well.

Ingrid

That said... Professor, I...

Lorenz

link
Lorenz

There is no one here who has not heard tales of Jeralt's valor. We have suffered a most dear loss.

Lorenz

I do not know what the enemy's aim was, but I do know this—after what they have done, we cannot suffer them to live.

Lorenz

If there is anything I can do to ensure that justice is brought swiftly, you need only give the word.

Raphael

Raphael

You gotta keep yourself active during tough times, Professor. Even if it seems impossible.

Raphael

That's how I got through when I lost my parents.

Raphael

If you need help with anything, just come and see me. Eating and training are my specialties.

Ignatz

Ignatz

I'm scared. I feel that I don't understand the world.

Ignatz

How could something like that happen to Jeralt? He was so strong.

Ignatz

You're inspiring, Professor. I'll do my best.

Ignatz

I suppose, but... Please, take care, Professor! We can't afford to lose you too.

Lysithea

link
Lysithea

I'm sure you will pull through this because you're so strong, Professor. Best to stay calm during such tumultuous and upsetting times.

Lysithea

We don't know the nature of our enemies. If we underestimate them, anything could happen.

Lysithea

I agree they must be defeated, but I also feel we must approach this with prudence.

Lysithea

Yes, I agree. I...don't want to lose you too, Professor.

Marianne

I'll say a prayer for Jeralt's soul.

Marianne

There's not much else I can do...

Marianne & Hilda

Hilda

Professor! People are saying horrible things about Marianne.

Hilda

They're saying she's friends with the bad guys. If I hear someone say that, I'll...

Marianne

Leave it alone, Hilda. It doesn't matter.

Marianne

Of course. Thank you, Professor.

Hilda

That would be the quickest way to resolve this. Come on Marianne, let's give it our all.

Hilda

Professor, it seems like you're holding up OK, but... I'm worried about Leonie.

Hilda

She really loved Jeralt. I hope she can bounce back...

Leonie

Leonie

Captain Jeralt's gone. He's gone. And we'd only just reunited...

Leonie

I'm sorry. I'm sorry, I'm sure this is even harder on you. But I just can't— I can't believe...

Seteth

link
Seteth

First Tomas, and now Monica. I do have a theory, though I admit it is nothing more than speculation.

Seteth

Both Tomas and Monica have each gone missing at one time or another.

Seteth

It was reported that when Monica returned from her disappearance, she began to act like a completely different person.

Seteth

As if, perhaps, the real Monica had been killed and replaced by an impostor.

Seteth

Thinking of it like that, it is possible that this Solon had been impersonating Tomas for some time.

Seteth

How they managed such a convincing change of appearance, though, I still do not understand.

You have lost your father...

Flayn

Now more than ever do I understand how very lucky I am that you were able to save me.

If there is anything at all I can do in return, please tell me, OK?

You've lost someone very dear to you... I'm so... You have my sympathy.

Manuela and I can take on some of your workload this month.

Hanneman

We can't do all the teaching, but at least we can lighten the load for you.

Hanneman

I've always seen strength in your eyes. I know you'll recover.

Hanneman

You're a very strong person.

Manuela

Manuela

I have something rather uncomfortable to discuss.

Manuela

It's about the weapon that killed Jeralt. Will you listen?

Manuela

It was a dagger, but I know enough to know it wasn't an ordinary dagger.

Manuela

It wasn't made of iron or steel because... Well, because whatever it was, the wound it left wasn't normal.

Manuela

Who could make a blade like that, do you figure?

Manuela

I see... That's probably for the best.

Manuela

I wonder who they were...

Cyril

Cyril

Oh, Goddess, hear my prayer. Please receive this beloved person.

Cyril

When the cold rain washes the body, when the bird and wolf announce the dawn...

Cyril

Receive them into your blue blood. Receive them into a twinkling star.

That's a mourning scripture from the Church of Seiros. Lady Rhea taught it to me.

Cyril

I pray that Jeralt is happy in the next world.

Rhea

Rhea

Professor... How are you holding up?

Rhea

I know how heavily grief weighs upon one's heart...

Rhea

I lost my mother some time ago. It was...

Rhea

Forgive me my moment of weakness. Even all these years later, I cannot recall that time without feeling the pain as if it were brand new.

Rhea

Just know that I am praying for your mind and your heart to find peace.

Monica von Ochs... There is nothing suspicious in her past that would suggest this change of character.

Student

I wonder if Edelgard is also... Oh, I'm sorry! Now I'm just being paranoid. Please ignore me.
