Edelgard

Edelgard

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

Edelgard

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

Edelgard

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

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

Edelgard

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

Edelgard

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

Edelgard

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

Ferdinand

Ferdinand

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

Ferdinand

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

Ferdinand

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

Ferdinand

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

Ferdinand

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

Linhardt

link
Linhardt

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

Linhardt

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

Linhardt

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

Linhardt

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

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

Caspar

link
Caspar

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

Caspar

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

Caspar

I'd almost rather fight a monster!

Caspar

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

Caspar

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

Bernadetta

link
Bernadetta

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

Bernadetta

But speaking of home, Hubert told me something.

Bernadetta

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

Bernadetta

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

Bernadetta

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

Dorothea

link
Dorothea

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

Dorothea

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

Dorothea

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

Dorothea

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

Dorothea

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

Petra

link
Petra

The Empire and Brigid were once warring with each other.

Petra

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

Petra

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

Petra

My belief is with you and with Edelgard.

Felix

Felix

I've been preparing to take this path.

Felix

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

Ashe

link
Ashe

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

Ashe

I need to know the truth.

Ashe

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

Ashe

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

Sylvain

link
Sylvain

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

Sylvain

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

Sylvain

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

Sylvain

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

Sylvain

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

Mercedes

link
Mercedes

Surely this is what the goddess willed, isn't it?

Mercedes

I feel she would not have wanted the Church of Seiros to become what it has...

Annette

link
Annette

Um, Professor...

Annette

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

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

Ingrid

link
Ingrid

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

Ingrid

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

Ingrid

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

Lorenz

link
Lorenz

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

Lorenz

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

Lorenz

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

Lorenz

It is unfortunate. We were classmates, after all.

Raphael

link
Raphael

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

Raphael

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

link
Ignatz

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

Ignatz

I believe in you, Professor, so I'm steeling myself.

Ignatz

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

Lysithea

link
Lysithea

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

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

Lysithea

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

Lysithea

I am counting on you, Professor.

Marianne

link
Marianne

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

Marianne

Edelgard is so radiant and strong compared to someone like me...

Marianne

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

Leonie

link
Leonie

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

Leonie

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

Leonie

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

But I'm determined to make something of myself in this battle to bring glory to my part of the family, for the sake of my mother and sister!

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

Ladislava

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

Ladislava

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

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

Ladislava

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

To be frank, I'm not sure whether I should believe all that Edelgard says.

But if her words are true...I think it's best to be her ally.

So I'll fight. I'm not at ease with that decision just yet, but I'll stick by it.

Soldier

Soldier

I have heard the name Lord Vestra mentioned among the purged noble families of the Empire.

Soldier

He's Hubert's father. But Hubert seems rather unconcerned about it...

Soldier

That alone is why we soldiers find Hubert quite frightening.

Soldier

Soldier

I'm a soldier, but I had to think long and hard about this one.

Soldier

Since birth, I've believed in the teachings of Seiros without ever questioning them.

But Her Majesty's words are true. To think that the archbishop can take on such a monstrous form...

Student

Student

I came this far mostly on impulse, but I wonder if it was the right choice...

Student

Everything will be OK, right, Professor? I'm not wrong, am I?

If I know that you think it's OK, I feel like it will be easier to believe in myself...
