This month, we will take all of the military force we can muster and advance to the Kingdom capital of Fhirdiad.

Edelgard
volume_up

I have no intention of retreating to Garreg Mach after we've come this far.

Edelgard
volume_up

We will only return after we've conquered Fhirdiad and put an end to this war.

Edelgard
volume_up

Be sure to steel your heart and ready yourself for the battle ahead.

Edelgard
volume_up

Are you certain? If so, please help me raise the morale of our allies.

Edelgard
volume_up

I'm sorry to burden you, but please look after our allies as well.

Edelgard
volume_up

We have no choice. I have every faith that you are capable of this.

Hubert

Hubert

Tch. Lord Arundel. As long as he exists, Lady Edelgard will...

Hubert
volume_up

I believe I have explained before that he is the one who commanded the likes of Solon and Kronya.

Hubert
volume_up

Cornelia, whom we defeated at Arianrhod, was also one of his.

Hubert
volume_up

An irksome sort. We must not fail to be rid of him.

Hubert
volume_up

He is a maggot, crawling in the filth of the world, feeding off the Empire like a parasite.

Ferdinand

Ferdinand
volume_up

Fhirdiad, the Kingdom Capital... From the Empire's perspective, it seems like the northernmost edge of the world.

Ferdinand
volume_up

I have come a long way, following you and Edelgard.

Ferdinand
volume_up

To think, what if I had succeeded Duke Aegir as prime minister?

Ferdinand
volume_up

I would never have had all these experiences.

Ferdinand
volume_up

I hope that is true. I used to be so naive...

Ferdinand
volume_up

Please do not tease, Professor. I think all of this has changed me a little bit.

Ferdinand
volume_up

For now, let us join together and walk the path that Her Majesty lays out.

Linhardt

Linhardt
volume_up

When you think of it, as one approaches the end of a war, the sacrifices only grow larger, don't they?

Linhardt
volume_up

The winning side musters their forces and attempts to strike a decisive blow...

Linhardt
volume_up

While those of the losing side make desperate attempts to turn the war in their favor.

Linhardt
volume_up

Neither side will give. I only wish we'd consider those who lose their lives in that struggle.

Linhardt
volume_up

Yes, exactly my point. Let's be careful to ensure we don't lose our own lives, Professor.

Linhardt
volume_up

Perhaps, but that doesn't make it any easier to accept your own survival depends on a throw of the dice.

Linhardt
volume_up

I can appreciate that, but just because a choice is better does not mean that it's good.

Caspar

Caspar
volume_up

All right! Off to the Kingdom capital we go!

Caspar
volume_up

Huh. I feel like I've said that before.

Caspar
volume_up

My imagination, eh? You usually know what you're talking about. Still, this is gonna bug me...

Caspar

Yeah, you usually know what you're talking about. I just can't remember when I woulda said it!

Caspar
volume_up

All right! I'm fired up and ready to go!

Bernadetta

Bernadetta

Professor! What should I do?!

Bernadetta

Everyone's acting like this is leading up to the final chapter in a book or something!

Bernadetta
volume_up

Is the battle ahead really going to be that climactic?! Am I not taking it seriously enough?!

Bernadetta
volume_up

You think so? All right, I believe you. I'm...ready for this. I am. Yeah! We're going to win!

Bernadetta
volume_up

I know, I know, but I...don't wanna die!

Bernadetta
volume_up

Yeah, you're probably right. I should take a breath and try to calm down.

Dorothea

Dorothea
volume_up

We're almost to the Kingdom capital of Fhirdiad. Just imagine...the war might almost be over.

Dorothea
volume_up

But is it true that Arianrhod was annihilated?!

Dorothea
volume_up

What in the world happened?! What is the Seiros Church, really?

Dorothea
volume_up

Fair enough. Let's just focus on this battle right now.

Dorothea
volume_up

Of course, Professor. I trust you, OK?

Dorothea
volume_up

I always have, and I always will.

Petra

Petra
volume_up

I have...worries. What have I been achieving?

Petra
volume_up

When the war is ended, I will be returning to Brigid with many...much new potential.

Petra
volume_up

But have I had enough growth to become the ruler?

Petra
volume_up

I have gratitude. I will take your words into my heart.

Petra
volume_up

This is the truth. I will fight with all of my strength so that I will know with certainty!

Petra
volume_up

Brigid pride, techniques, and culture... I will be showing all of the world who we are!

Felix

Felix
volume_up

They used to call my father the "Shield of Faerghus." Now he's gone, and Arianrhod has fallen.

Felix
volume_up

Yet the Knights of Seiros remain. As does the boar.

Felix
volume_up

What terrifies me most is his stubbornness.

Felix
volume_up

He'll keep on fighting to the last man.

Felix
volume_up

He's a monster. I've seen it firsthand.

Ashe

Ashe
volume_up

I hear that House Blaiddyd commands some strong and well-trained troops.

Ashe
volume_up

People say they're fiercely devoted and will gladly die for their king.

Ashe
volume_up

Reminds me of Lonato's men—the ones we faced back in Magdred.

Ashe
volume_up

Unlike those civilian soldiers though, here we're up against the best that the Faerghus army has to offer.

Ashe
volume_up

It's going to be a hard battle, but if there's a peaceful tomorrow waiting on the other side, it'll be worth it.

Sylvain

link
Sylvain
volume_up

I've been thinking about how we've got our own ideas about justice...and so does the Kingdom.

Sylvain
volume_up

And what's coming, it's not just a battle between us and them. It's our ideals that are fighting.

Sylvain
volume_up

Whoever wins will say they were right and the other side was wrong. And I get it. That's how it goes...

Sylvain
volume_up

But nobody's willing to talk or compromise, so we'll fight to the death to prove the other guy's wrong.

Sylvain
volume_up

It won't be an easy battle, but let's make sure we come back alive. Right, Professor?

Mercedes

Mercedes
volume_up

When I first enrolled in the Officers Academy, I never thought it would come to this.

Mercedes
volume_up

I can't believe we're waging war...against the church, no less.

Mercedes
volume_up

There are some things that I regret, but I don't think I made the wrong decision.

Mercedes
volume_up

Yes, of course.

Mercedes
volume_up

Even if our enemy is Lady Rhea herself, I am prepared to fight.

Annette

link
Annette
volume_up

I'm sure my father will be waiting in Fhirdiad. If I can avoid it, I'd rather not fight him...

Annette
volume_up

But I don't think my father is capable of betraying the royal family...of betraying Dimitri.

Annette
volume_up

I must be prepared to do...what I have to.

Annette
volume_up

Right!

Annette
volume_up

I'm all right. I still stand by my decision to trust in you.

Annette
volume_up

Professor... Let's make sure we win!

Ingrid

Ingrid
volume_up

Claude was known as the Master Tactician. There wasn't a situation he couldn't strategize his way out of.

Ingrid
volume_up

Whereas, King Dimitri is known as the Tempest King. He is a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield.

Ingrid
volume_up

We still haven't ever faced him head-on. Can we do this?

Ingrid
volume_up

Yes. Of course we can! I'm sorry. I let my uncertainty get the better of me.

Ingrid
volume_up

Ah, Professor. Ever the reliable one.

Ingrid
volume_up

We have you, and we have Edelgard. Not to mention many other allies we can rely upon.

Ingrid
volume_up

Together...we can overcome even the most formidable foe!

Lorenz

Lorenz
volume_up

Personally I take no issue with attacking Lady Rhea.

Lorenz
volume_up

But the eagerness of my fellow nobles does vex me, despite so many grand displays of piety from them in the past.

Lorenz
volume_up

It gives the impression that faith is little more than a tool they use to maintain their positions of power.

Lorenz
volume_up

I suppose I am in no position to judge them, being among their number myself. Still, it irritates me.

Lorenz
volume_up

If it is no longer useful as a tool, then I expect the nobles will cease to give it any credence.

Lorenz
volume_up

What is a noble's duty, truly? I hope we will discover an answer in the conflict ahead.

Raphael

Hyah! Next up is the Kingdom capital! We're coming for you!

Raphael

Whoa. That sounds familiar. Have I said that before?

Raphael

Really? You're probably right. It's not like we've invaded the Kingdom capital before.

Raphael
volume_up

Really? Does that mean we've invaded the Kingdom capital before?

Raphael
volume_up

Yeah! Let's do it, Professor! I just gotta get my muscles prepped and ready first!

Ignatz

Ignatz

Once the Kingdom capital falls, all of Fódlan will be united under the banner of the Empire.

Ignatz

Isn't it thrilling? We're going to make history.

Ignatz

Well, yes, I suppose that's true.

Ignatz
volume_up

Hah! I don't think that will happen.

Ignatz
volume_up

Yes, of course! I'll do my best.

Ignatz
volume_up

Our opponents may be strong, but with you on our side, we can't lose!

Lysithea

Lysithea
volume_up

If we win this battle, it will be an end to the Kingdom, and to the church. Under the Empire, an era of peace would begin...

Lysithea
volume_up

Many people are cleaving to this notion, but I wonder if it would really end up as such.

Lysithea
volume_up

Such resolve. It's convincing, to say the least.

Lysithea
volume_up

I worry as much myself.

Lysithea
volume_up

It's true—it's nothing but hypotheticals at this point.

Lysithea
volume_up

I wonder... Was the collapse of Arianrhod really the church's doing?

Lysithea
volume_up

Or could it be that... Hm. Never mind me. Just thinking aloud.

Not planning on it.

Leonie

If you're still alive when this is all over, then I'll have kept my word to Captain Jeralt.

Leonie
volume_up

Hanneman

link
Hanneman
volume_up

When Edelgard first invited me to join this army, I, to be frank, thought her dream utterly ridiculous.

Hanneman
volume_up

But at my advanced age, I was tempted by the notion of chasing a seemingly impossible dream through blood, sweat, and tears.

Hanneman
volume_up

Five years on, the unification of Fódlan is slowly becoming a reality. Now I feel...

Hanneman
volume_up

It may soon be possible to abolish the nobility, and create a world where none need suffer due to Crests.

Hanneman
volume_up

You need not say anything. I will stay by your side, and hers, to the very end.

Manuela

Manuela
volume_up

Professor, do you mind if I complain about something, well, personal? Of course you don't.

Manuela
volume_up

This army is almost all single men. If that marital status came before or during the war, I'm not to say...

Manuela
volume_up

The point is, I'm in charge of the infirmary. I wind up treating hundreds of men every week.

Manuela
volume_up

I get to talk to all sorts of men, from all walks of life, all of the time. And yet...

Manuela
volume_up

No! Not one of these men is infatuated with their caregiver! Isn't that supposed to happen in wartime?!

Manuela
volume_up

Forget that, I can't even find a boyfriend! Marriage is just—pffftt! A joke! Just a sick joke.

Manuela
volume_up

Yeah... I'm starting to figure that's the most realistic option.

Manuela
volume_up

At this point, you're the only man who pays attention to me. I guess I'll have to take what I can get.

Manuela
volume_up

At this point, I'm just hoping you stay single too. Then at least we can share each other's misery!

Alois

Alois

I wonder what the captain would say if he knew we were planning to take down Lady Rhea.

Alois

Lady Rhea and Captain Jeralt went back pretty far.

But hey, it's your decision! I'm sure he would have understood in the end.

Alois
volume_up

Now, onward to Fhirdiad! I'm ready!

Shamir

Shamir

The idea of defeating Rhea is beginning to feel more like a reality.

Shamir

Some may say that I'm returning her goodwill with betrayal, but I believe I've worked off my debt.

Shamir
volume_up

The real problem is a certain someone else.

Shamir
volume_up

That's right. She was my partner, after all. I haven't seen her since leaving the knights...

Shamir
volume_up

I taught him some archery, but we are of different birth and hold different values.

Shamir
volume_up

I was speaking of Catherine.

Shamir
volume_up

I have no particular interest in him.

I was speaking of Catherine.

Meanwhile, in the northern reaches of Fódlan, Nemesis, the King of Liberation, raised an army to take down the Empire...

Both armies clashed on the Tailtean Plains, where Seiros felled Nemesis.

As a result, the conflict ended in a victory for the Empire. It's known as the Battle of Tailtean.

Yuri

My take? There exist some dangerous folks capable of destroying strongholds with ease...

Yuri
volume_up

You should ask Edelgard or Hubert. They'd know more than I do.

Some think that all we have to do is take down Fhirdiad to end the war, but I don't think it's quite that simple.

He may be the Tempest King of Fhirdiad, but I'm the Grappling King of the world! My domain is way bigger.
