Edelgard
volume_up

We will join forces with the main army and attack Garreg Mach.

Edelgard
volume_up

It's a fortress built on steep ground, but it's never seen battle.

Edelgard
volume_up

That means we don't know much about it from a military perspective. But if we use all of the power at our disposal, we will capture it.

Edelgard
volume_up

From a purely mathematical standpoint, we most certainly have the power to win.

Edelgard
volume_up

If the battle becomes a clash of beasts with inhuman strength...

Edelgard
volume_up

You will be our only hope. I believe in you.

Edelgard
volume_up

I'm relying on you to lead the Black Eagle Strike Force to victory.

Ferdinand

Ferdinand
volume_up

I asked Edelgard what happened to my father. He was dismissed as prime minister and is under house arrest in the Imperial capital.

Ferdinand
volume_up

He always was a greedy, arrogant man. Some would say that this is the fate he deserves.

Ferdinand
volume_up

And yet I cannot help but feel indignant. After all his hard work for the Empire, to be disgraced like this!

Ferdinand
volume_up

I am conflicted, Professor. I do not know what to do.

Ferdinand
volume_up

As the next Duke Aegir, should I follow Edelgard into battle?

Linhardt

link
Linhardt
volume_up

The most important nobles in the Empire are known for taking power from the previous emperor, my father included.

Linhardt
volume_up

I didn't think it possible that the Imperial princess could ascend the throne so easily.

Linhardt
volume_up

However, it seems that both my father and Caspar's are supporting Edelgard...

Linhardt
volume_up

Having both the Minister of Domestic Affairs and Minister of Military Affairs on your side gives you total control over the Empire's military and finances.

Linhardt
volume_up

They must have been making preparations for quite some time without anyone noticing...

Caspar

link
Caspar
volume_up

That could have gotten dangerous fast. If I stayed at the monastery, I would've had to fight my father!

Caspar
volume_up

We aren't especially close, but he's not an opponent I'd want to face.

Caspar
volume_up

I'd almost rather fight a monster!

Caspar
volume_up

Anyway, it looks like he's going to be leading the western units.

Caspar
volume_up

I wonder if we'll wind up fighting the Kingdom's army, and who decided to fight for the church...

Bernadetta

link
Bernadetta
volume_up

I don't even get my own room here! At least I had that at home.

Bernadetta
volume_up

But speaking of home, Hubert told me something.

Bernadetta
volume_up

He said my father was stripped of his title. I guess he did as he pleased and opposed Edelgard.

Bernadetta
volume_up

Wait, does that mean my father's going to be home all the time now?

Bernadetta
volume_up

On second thought, I think I'm fine right here.

Dorothea

link
Dorothea
volume_up

Edelgard became emperor and raised an army, huh? Who knew the kid had it in her?

Dorothea
volume_up

I mean, yeah, of course, I knew she'd be emperor eventually, but...

Dorothea
volume_up

The more I think about it, the more surprised I am. I wonder who's going to win?

Dorothea
volume_up

It is. We might have to fight against others from the academy, and that's... I can't think about it.

Dorothea
volume_up

Thinking about it makes me scared. We're fighting the Knights of Seiros! Still, I know you'll figure something out.

Petra

link
Petra
volume_up

The Empire and Brigid were once warring with each other.

Petra
volume_up

But now, I have made the decision to be fighting with the Empire.

Petra
volume_up

It is a choice of irony, I feel. But I am having no regret.

Petra
volume_up

My belief is with you and with Edelgard.

Felix

Felix

I've been preparing to take this path.

Felix
volume_up

My own path—not my old man's, and not the boar's.

Ashe

Ashe
volume_up

I can't bring myself to trust the Church of Seiros. Not after they killed Lonato and my brother.

Ashe
volume_up

I need to know the truth.

Ashe
volume_up

Even if it means...turning my weapon on Faerghus.

Ashe
volume_up

I guess Lonato would be happy to hear me say that, if he were still around.

Sylvain

Sylvain
volume_up

I've gone and done it now, huh? What would my old man say if he knew I'd sided with the Empire?

Sylvain
volume_up

His Highness must be angry. Dimitri gets super scary when he's like that.

Sylvain
volume_up

I wonder how I'm going to die... Ugh, my knees turn to jelly just thinking about it.

Sylvain
volume_up

No, I can't think that way. I promised to fight alongside you. I'm here until the end.

Sylvain
volume_up

Heh, listen to me. I'm terrified, but I feel so calm.

Mercedes

Annette

Um, Professor...

Annette
volume_up

I'm OK with fighting whoever we need to, but I really don't want to battle my father...

Annette

Oh, but I know that something is wrong with the church...

Annette
volume_up

And more than that, I believe in you, and I trust your word. You lead and I'll follow.

Ingrid

Ingrid
volume_up

I may return to Galatea territory and try to convince my father to join our cause.

Ingrid
volume_up

It's possible that... No. In my heart, I know that my father won't listen.

Ingrid
volume_up

Still, I must get him to see reason. That this is the only way to ensure our family's future.

Lorenz

link
Lorenz
volume_up

I've decided to ally myself with Lady Edelgard. Father will doubtless understand my reasoning.

Lorenz
volume_up

House Gloucester has always had good intentions in its dealings with the Empire.

Lorenz
volume_up

Of course, this does mean I will no longer be able to avoid a confrontation with Claude.

Lorenz
volume_up

It is unfortunate. We were classmates, after all.

Raphael

Raphael
volume_up

No need to worry about me. I got no complaints as long as my little sis is safe.

Raphael
volume_up

Sure, I lived on Alliance land, but that doesn't mean I served their lords.

Raphael

I'm sure this is the right path, seeing as you're the one who picked it, Professor!

Ignatz

Ignatz
volume_up

To think things would come to this. Even a few months ago, I never could've imagined it.

Ignatz

Ignatz
volume_up

I can't promise that I'll be useful in battle, but I'm not running away from the fight.

Lysithea

link
Lysithea
volume_up

If the church is behind the current state of things— this society in which only Crests are valued—then I have no need of it.

Lysithea
volume_up

Edelgard is taking the shortest path to change. No matter how drastic her measures, I agree that this is the only way.

Lysithea
volume_up

That said, if Edelgard strays from her noble path, I trust you will set her straight again. Won't you?

Lysithea
volume_up

I am counting on you, Professor.

Marianne

Imagine making half the world your enemy for the sake of realizing your own ideals...

Marianne

What if I have the power to change the world too? Even just a little bit...

Leonie

link
Leonie
volume_up

So, you've turned against the church to ally with the Empire too, huh?

Leonie
volume_up

I never pressed him for details, but Captain Jeralt was always suspicious of Lady Rhea, wasn't he?

Leonie
volume_up

I'm on your side, no matter what. I promised him I'd support you, and that's what I plan to do.

My mother married into House Bergliez after I was born, so my position within the family is rather lowly...

I believe that this is the first time we have met. My name is Ladislava.

Ladislava
volume_up

I have the great honor of leading Lady Edelgard's personal guard.

Ladislava
volume_up

Her Majesty is as hard on others as she is on herself. She may seem composed, but that is only because she conceals her more passionate emotions.

Ladislava
volume_up

For that reason, she is often misunderstood. But now she has you by her side...

Ladislava
volume_up

I find that most reassuring. I look forward to working with you.
