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

Edelgard (Recruited)
volume_up

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

Edelgard (Recruited)
volume_up

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

Edelgard (Recruited)
volume_up

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

Edelgard (Not Recruited)
volume_up

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

Edelgard (Not Recruited)
volume_up

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)
volume_up

We can't let them get away with this.

Dimitri

Dimitri (Recruited)
volume_up

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

Dimitri (Recruited)
volume_up

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

Dimitri (Recruited)
volume_up

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

Dimitri (Recruited)
volume_up

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

Dimitri (Not Recruited)
volume_up

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

Dimitri (Not Recruited)
volume_up

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

Dimitri (Not Recruited)
volume_up

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

Claude

Claude (Recruited)
volume_up

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

Claude (Recruited)
volume_up

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

Claude (Recruited)
volume_up

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

Claude (Recruited)
volume_up

But Jeralt really cherished you. That much is clear.

Claude (Not Recruited)
volume_up

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

Claude (Not Recruited)
volume_up

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

Hubert

link
Hubert
volume_up

I've never been much for condolences.

Hubert (Recruited)
volume_up

How about a little logic, instead?

Hubert (Recruited)
volume_up

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

Hubert (Recruited)
volume_up

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

Hubert (Recruited)
volume_up

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

Ferdinand & Petra

Petra
volume_up

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

Ferdinand
volume_up

I do not see what is impossible about it.

Ferdinand
volume_up

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

Ferdinand
volume_up

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
volume_up

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

link
Petra
volume_up

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

Petra
volume_up

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

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

Linhardt

Linhardt
volume_up

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
volume_up

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
volume_up

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

Linhardt
volume_up

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
volume_up

I'm not even close to being strong enough.

Caspar
volume_up

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

Caspar
volume_up

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
volume_up

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

Bernadetta

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.

But I do know this much...

Dorothea

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

It is a shame what happened to Jeralt.

Felix & Sylvain

Sylvain
volume_up

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

Sylvain
volume_up

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

Felix
volume_up

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

Sylvain
volume_up

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
volume_up

What do you think, Professor?

Felix
volume_up

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

Sylvain
volume_up

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

Not just Tomas, but Monica too.

Mercedes & Annette

Mercedes
volume_up

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

Annette
volume_up

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

Annette
volume_up

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

Mercedes
volume_up

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

Annette
volume_up

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
volume_up

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

Ingrid
volume_up

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

Ingrid
volume_up

That said... Professor, I...

Lorenz

Lorenz
volume_up

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

Lorenz
volume_up

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
volume_up

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

Raphael

Raphael
volume_up

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

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
volume_up

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

Lysithea

link
Lysithea
volume_up

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
volume_up

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

Lysithea
volume_up

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

Lysithea
volume_up

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

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
volume_up

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

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

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

Seteth
volume_up

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

Seteth
volume_up

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

Seteth
volume_up

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

Seteth
volume_up

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

Seteth
volume_up

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

Seteth
volume_up

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

Manuela

Manuela
volume_up

I have something rather uncomfortable to discuss.

Manuela
volume_up

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

Manuela
volume_up

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

Manuela
volume_up

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

Manuela
volume_up

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

Manuela
volume_up

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