Byleth & Hanneman

Hanneman

Are you positive? Really? Your appearance is due to the influence of the Crest of Flames? Intriguing.

Hanneman

Unfortunately, I have found no record of Nemesis's hair and eye color ever changing. However...

Hanneman

If that transformation was brought on, in part, by the power of the Crest, that would be most... Well, I suppose interesting is too small a word.

Hanneman

Still, it would be an absolutely exceptional discovery. To know for certain, we must investigate further. So, clothes off!

Byleth

...

Hanneman

What? A full physical is in order, yes? We need to know if this transformation affected you adversely. Don't worry, it won't hurt a bit.

Hanneman

Oh! Yes. I...I should call Manuela. My apologies.

Edelgard

Edelgard (Recruited)

Thank you for coming all the way to the Imperial capital, Professor.

Edelgard (Recruited)

The announcement of my enthronement is imminent.

Edelgard (Recruited)

Until then, can you please keep it to yourself? There are many preparations that must be made before the news spreads.

Edelgard (Recruited)

I believe Hubert will be occupied and away from the monastery for much of this month.

Edelgard (Recruited)

I have returned, Professor. All that needed to be done has been done.

Dimitri & Dedue

link
Dedue

Professor. Please. If he hears it from you that he needs to rest, perhaps His Highness will listen.

Dimitri

He's exaggerating. He thinks my color is off and that rest will cure all.

Dimitri

I have a headache, but that's just from lack of sleep. It's not going to stop me from completing this month's mission.

Dedue

The professor agrees. Please rest. At least until the task is at hand.

Dimitri

I won't. Even if I tried, it's not like I would get any decent sleep. It would only be a waste of time.

Dedue

I must insist—

Dimitri

Who do you think you are? I can take care of myself, Dedue.

Dimitri (Recruited)

In any case, we won't let you down this month, Professor. You can rely on us.

Claude

Claude (Recruited)

Hey, Teach. Is it OK for you to be out on your own right now? Just...please be careful not to topple over again. You scared us nearly to death.

Claude (Recruited)

Anyway... Doesn't Rhea want something from you? Sounds important.

Claude (Recruited)

I'm glad I'll be there to witness the ritual at the Holy Tomb.

Claude (Recruited)

I want to see whether or not something happens with my own eyes.

Claude (Not Recruited)

I always knew there was something special about you, but you've only gotten more and more extraordinary the longer I've known you.

Claude (Not Recruited)

That transformation was just the beginning, wasn't it? I have a feeling that things will only grow more dire from here on out.

Ferdinand

link
Ferdinand

Edelgard and Hubert have been busier than usual.

Ferdinand

Constantly coming and going, in and out of Garreg Mach. Perhaps they are doing something in the Empire?

Ferdinand

As the legitimate heir of the Aegir family, I have not heard anything about it.

Ferdinand

But if it were significant, I am sure my father would have told me.

Linhardt

link
Linhardt

How are you, Professor? Did Hanneman make his, "I will do no harm" speech or promise "this won't hurt a bit" when he asked to study you? Both?

Linhardt

I've a bit of research I'd like to perform. Nothing so crass as Hanneman's poking, prodding, and drawing of blood. No, I wish to investigate Crest power itself.

Linhardt

Crest power must have some kind of limit, right?

Linhardt

Lady Rhea says any limits must be the protection of the goddess, but that doesn't quite answer it for me. Hmm...

Bernadetta

Sorry. I'm really not feeling well this month.

Bernadetta

Even leaving my room for dinner is just too much.

Bernadetta

It's got nothing to do with your, um...changes.

Bernadetta

So, um, don't open the door, please!

Dorothea

link
Dorothea

Recently, Professor, I feel as though you've been a bit distant.

Dorothea

It's like you're sort of floating above the clouds, separate from other people... And like you've got no interest at all in ever coming back down.

Dorothea

How can I help?

Dorothea

Hey, don't worry. I thought maybe I'd ask and see what you'd say.

Petra

Petra

In Brigid, we have legends. Stories containing people who have a spirit living inside of them.

Petra

Those spirit people have much strength. They are maybe able to fly in the air or race across the ocean.

Petra

Hair that shines and eyes that glow... They have qualities that are not unlike what you are looking like, Professor.

Petra

Are you knowing that for certain? Maybe you will have wings grow and soar through the sky...

Petra

Do not have doubt, Professor. The powers you have are like the powers of the legends.

Felix

Felix (Recruited)

Hurry up and cage the wild boar.

Felix (Recruited)

Look, he's losing his grip. Even in his swordplay, he's getting sloppy. If he keeps progressing like this, he's going to get himself killed.

Felix

Kronya, Solon... They're dead, but we still have a glut of enemies.

Felix

We still have to take down the Death Knight and the Flame Emperor.

Felix

Our next battle is fast approaching. I'm ready for it.

Ashe

Ashe

I can't even imagine what it must be like inside the Holy Tomb.

Ashe

Well, it's probably a grave, that much is for sure. And it's likely underground. Beyond that, who knows?

Ashe

I guess you're right. Holy or not, all graves are kind of the same, aren't they?

Ashe

I can't help but wonder though... Just what kind of ritual is this?

Sylvain

link
Sylvain (Recruited)

I swear, it's like you're an entirely different person.

Sylvain

Heh, I guess you're right. If I look hard, I can still tell it's you.

Sylvain

No, not at all! I'm just not used to it. It really suits you though.

Sylvain

It's not weird at all. It's... You're somehow even more beautiful than before.

Sylvain

I'm joking! I'm joking! Don't get mad.

link
Sylvain

Who— Oh! Professor! Ah, I'm sorry. That was rude. I didn't recognize you for a second.

No, not at all! I'm just not used to it. It really suits you though.

Mercedes & Ingrid

link
Ingrid

You've been granted this power by the goddess herself. Truly, you must be a very special individual.

Ingrid

Maybe Seiros transformed before receiving her revelation too!

Mercedes

Hmm. I haven't heard anything about that before...

Mercedes

Maybe that part never found its way into the legend?

Ingrid

It is told that Seiros had a revelation instructing her to use her power for good, and to lead the people of Fódlan to salvation...

Ingrid

I wonder what sort of revelation you might have, Professor.

Annette

link
Annette (Recruited)

Bah! Professor! Sorry, this will take some getting used to...

link
Annette

Your hair and eye color are completely different! You just don't look like yourself anymore.

Annette

Of course. You're right. I'm just being silly, as usual.

Annette

Don't scare me like that! You are still you...right? You are, right?!

link
Annette

Bah! Professor! Sorry. You gave me a shock.

Lorenz

Lorenz

To be honest, I cannot keep up with all that's been happening recently.

Lorenz

Monica was actually Kronya. Tomas was actually Solon. Who were these people?

Lorenz

What about you, Professor? You are a true ally, yes?

Lorenz

Not the most convincing answer you could have given. Still, I simply must take you at your word.

Lorenz

Pull yourself together! It is still your duty to lead us, is it not?

Raphael

link
Raphael

You look so...different. You're still our professor in there, right?

Raphael

Did anything else change besides your hair and eyes? Are your arms bigger? How do your abs look?

Raphael

Really?! You gotta teach me how to do that!

Raphael

That's disappointing. What's even the point?

Ignatz

link
Ignatz (Recruited)

So, this month's mission is to take part in a ritual at the Holy Tomb, where you will receive a revelation from the goddess herself.

Ignatz (Recruited)

What if she really appears? What if I finally get to gaze upon her radiance?

Ignatz (Recruited)

I've always imagined the goddess—how beautiful she must be!

link
Ignatz

You're going to the ritual at the Holy Tomb, right? I hear that a revelation from the goddess is expected.

What if she shows herself? I'll be so jealous!

Lysithea

Lysithea

Your hair! And your eyes! What happened to you?!

Lysithea

You didn't lose something as a consequence of gaining these powers, did you?

Lysithea

I see. Well, that makes me feel better. But still, be careful.

Lysithea

Sometimes our frail bodies don't do well with excess power... So don't push yourself too hard.

Marianne & Hilda

link
Marianne

Long ago, Saint Seiros was gifted with a divine revelation from the goddess, as well as incredible power.

Marianne

Is that what happened to you too, Professor?

Hilda

No way! The professor transformed before receiving any kind of divine revelation, right?

Hilda

Still, I wonder. Does the fact that you've changed really mean you've been granted some kind of power?

Marianne

If that's the case, then what sort of revelation can be gained from the ritual?

Hilda

I'm guessing the revelation will just be a gentle reminder to use this new power to save the people of Fódlan. What else is there to say?

Hilda

You don't actually believe we're going to hear the voice of the goddess, do you?

Leonie

link
Leonie

When you changed, even the other professors were taken completely by surprise.

Leonie

There's a ritual at the Holy Tomb this month, isn't there? I wonder what'll happen with that.

Leonie

I'm sure you'll be all right. But don't lose sight of who you really are, OK?

Leonie

However you may change, and whatever new power goes along with those changes—you'll still be the same person, deep down. Remember that.

The Holy Tomb, huh?

Manuela

I've worked here for years, and this is the first I've heard of it.

Manuela

I mean, it does make some sense. Sort of. Something about it is still weird.

Manuela

I understand now why they'd build the monastery in the mountainous center of Fódlan. Although...

Manuela

When the monastery was built, the Kingdom and Alliance weren't even around yet.

Manuela

But look how cleverly it was placed right in the middle of the Empire, Kingdom, and Alliance. That's weird, right?

Gilbert

Gilbert

Sometimes, I find myself thinking I should leave Garreg Mach and return to my home...

Ignore me. I'm sorry...it's a silly thing. An old man's ramblings, and nothing more.

Gilbert

I hear that Lady Rhea will accompany you for this month's task.

She's the pillar that supports the hearts of Fódlan's people. Her safety is paramount. I hope there are no complications...

Alois

Clearing out this room of his belongings again, it's... It's not easy.

Catherine

Catherine

In our battle last month, we really cut the enemy down to size.

Catherine

Catherine

It will happen soon. I have a feeling something big is coming.

Shamir

People who live an inordinately long time, people whose hair changes color, and those odd Heroes' Relics...

Shamir

You should see for yourself. I'd recommend exploring west of the Empire.

Cyril

Cyril

When I first saw you, Professor, with that hair color and that eye color? I thought you looked kind of like Lady Rhea. Like maybe you could be related.

Cyril

I like the way it looks! I wonder if I could change my hair color too... Maybe if I tried hard enough. If I thought real hard about it, I mean.

Cyril

All I need to do is get trapped up in a strange place and then escape, right? Just like you did.

Cyril

I might not need to, but I still wanna.

Rhea

Rhea

You haven't a thing to worry about. You have been gifted the power of the goddess.

Rhea

I am proud...so very proud of who you have become.

Rhea

Once we finish the ritual at the Holy Tomb, all will be well.

Rhea

That is understandable.

Rhea

Just know that your unease should disappear the moment we conclude the ritual at the Holy Tomb.

Those students of yours will soon graduate and become unreachable royalty and nobility.

Soldier

Even when your kids graduate, I bet they'll still think fondly of you. You'll always be "Professor" to them.
