This month, we will take all of the military force we
can muster and advance to the Kingdom capital
I have no intention of retreating to Garreg Mach
after we've come this far.
We will only return after we've conquered Fhirdiad
and put an end to this war.
Be sure to steel your heart and ready yourself for the
Are you certain? If so, please help me raise the
morale of our allies.
I'm sorry to burden you, but please look after our
allies as well.
We have no choice. I have every faith that you are
capable of this.
Tch. Lord Arundel. As long as he exists, Lady
I believe I have explained before that he is the one
who commanded the likes of Solon and Kronya.
Cornelia, whom we defeated at Arianrhod, was also
one of his.
An irksome sort. We must not fail to be rid of him.
He is a maggot, crawling in the filth of the world,
feeding off the Empire like a parasite.
Fhirdiad, the Kingdom Capital... From the Empire's
perspective, it seems like the northernmost edge of
I have come a long way, following you and Edelgard.
To think, what if I had succeeded Duke Aegir as
I would never have had all these experiences.
I hope that is true. I used to be so naive...
Please do not tease, Professor. I think all of this has
changed me a little bit.
For now, let us join together and walk the path that
Her Majesty lays out.
When you think of it, as one approaches the end of a
war, the sacrifices only grow larger, don't they?
The winning side musters their forces and attempts
to strike a decisive blow...
While those of the losing side make desperate
attempts to turn the war in their favor.
Neither side will give. I only wish we'd consider
those who lose their lives in that struggle.
Yes, exactly my point. Let's be careful to ensure we
don't lose our own lives, Professor.
Perhaps, but that doesn't make it any easier to accept
your own survival depends on a throw of the dice.
I can appreciate that, but just because a choice is
better does not mean that it's good.
All right! Off to the Kingdom capital we go!
Huh. I feel like I've said that before.
My imagination, eh? You usually know what you're
talking about. Still, this is gonna bug me...
Yeah, you usually know what you're talking about.
I just can't remember when I woulda said it!
All right! I'm fired up and ready to go!
Professor! What should I do?!
Everyone's acting like this is leading up to the final
chapter in a book or something!
Is the battle ahead really going to be that climactic?!
Am I not taking it seriously enough?!
You think so? All right, I believe you. I'm...ready
for this. I am. Yeah! We're going to win!
I know, I know, but I...don't wanna die!
Yeah, you're probably right. I should take a breath
and try to calm down.
We're almost to the Kingdom capital of Fhirdiad.
Just imagine...the war might almost be over.
But is it true that Arianrhod was annihilated?!
What in the world happened?! What is the Seiros
Fair enough. Let's just focus on this battle right now.
Of course, Professor. I trust you, OK?
I always have, and I always will.
I have...worries. What have I been achieving?
When the war is ended, I will be returning to Brigid
with many...much new potential.
But have I had enough growth to become the ruler?
I have gratitude. I will take your words into
This is the truth. I will fight with all of my strength
so that I will know with certainty!
Brigid pride, techniques, and culture... I will be
showing all of the world who we are!
They used to call my father the "Shield of Faerghus."
Now he's gone, and Arianrhod has fallen.
Yet the Knights of Seiros remain. As does the boar.
What terrifies me most is his stubbornness.
He'll keep on fighting to the last man.
He's a monster. I've seen it firsthand.
I hear that House Blaiddyd commands some strong
and well-trained troops.
People say they're fiercely devoted and will gladly
die for their king.
Reminds me of Lonato's men—the ones we faced
back in Magdred.
Unlike those civilian soldiers though, here we're up
against the best that the Faerghus army has to offer.
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.
I've been thinking about how we've got our own
ideas about justice...and so does the Kingdom.
And what's coming, it's not just a battle between us
and them. It's our ideals that are fighting.
Whoever wins will say they were right and the other
side was wrong. And I get it. That's how it goes...
But nobody's willing to talk or compromise, so we'll
fight to the death to prove the other guy's wrong.
It won't be an easy battle, but let's make sure we
come back alive. Right, Professor?
When I first enrolled in the Officers Academy,
I never thought it would come to this.
I can't believe we're waging war...against the church,
There are some things that I regret, but I don't think
I made the wrong decision.
Yes, of course.
Even if our enemy is Lady Rhea herself, I am
prepared to fight.
I'm sure my father will be waiting in Fhirdiad.
If I can avoid it, I'd rather not fight him...
But I don't think my father is capable of betraying
the royal family...of betraying Dimitri.
I must be prepared to do...what I have to.
I'm all right. I still stand by my decision to trust
Professor... Let's make sure we win!
Claude was known as the Master Tactician.
There wasn't a situation he couldn't strategize
his way out of.
Whereas, King Dimitri is known as the Tempest
King. He is a force to be reckoned with on the
We still haven't ever faced him head-on. Can we
Yes. Of course we can! I'm sorry. I let my uncertainty
get the better of me.
Ah, Professor. Ever the reliable one.
We have you, and we have Edelgard. Not to mention
many other allies we can rely upon.
Together...we can overcome even the most
Personally I take no issue with attacking Lady Rhea.
But the eagerness of my fellow nobles does vex me,
despite so many grand displays of piety from them
in the past.
It gives the impression that faith is little more than a
tool they use to maintain their positions of power.
I suppose I am in no position to judge them, being
among their number myself. Still, it irritates me.
If it is no longer useful as a tool, then I expect the
nobles will cease to give it any credence.
What is a noble's duty, truly? I hope we will discover
an answer in the conflict ahead.
Hyah! Next up is the Kingdom capital! We're
coming for you!
Whoa. That sounds familiar. Have I said that before?
Really? You're probably right. It's not like we've
invaded the Kingdom capital before.
Really? Does that mean we've invaded the Kingdom
Yeah! Let's do it, Professor! I just gotta get my
muscles prepped and ready first!
Once the Kingdom capital falls, all of Fódlan will be
united under the banner of the Empire.
Isn't it thrilling? We're going to make history.
Well, yes, I suppose that's true.
Hah! I don't think that will happen.
Yes, of course! I'll do my best.
Our opponents may be strong, but with you on our
side, we can't lose!
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...
Many people are cleaving to this notion, but I
wonder if it would really end up as such.
Such resolve. It's convincing, to say the least.
I worry as much myself.
It's true—it's nothing but hypotheticals at this point.
I wonder... Was the collapse of Arianrhod really the
Or could it be that... Hm. Never mind me. Just
Yes... I was praying for your safety.
Um...for your safety.
I'll do all I can to survive, but please...please don't
die out there, Professor.
Looks like we're finally getting to the end of this
thing. Don't go dying on us now, all right?
Ha! I like your confidence.
Not planning on it.
If you're still alive when this is all over, then I'll have
kept my word to Captain Jeralt.
Let's both live to see the dawn of a bright new age!
When Edelgard first invited me to join this army, I,
to be frank, thought her dream utterly ridiculous.
But at my advanced age, I was tempted by the notion
of chasing a seemingly impossible dream through
blood, sweat, and tears.
Five years on, the unification of Fódlan is slowly
becoming a reality. Now I feel...
It may soon be possible to abolish the nobility, and
create a world where none need suffer due to Crests.
You need not say anything. I will stay by your side,
and hers, to the very end.
Professor, do you mind if I complain about
something, well, personal? Of course you don't.
This army is almost all single men. If that marital
status came before or during the war, I'm not to say...
The point is, I'm in charge of the infirmary. I wind
up treating hundreds of men every week.
I get to talk to all sorts of men, from all walks of life,
all of the time. And yet...
No! Not one of these men is infatuated with their
caregiver! Isn't that supposed to happen in wartime?!
Forget that, I can't even find a boyfriend! Marriage
is just—pffftt! A joke! Just a sick joke.
Yeah... I'm starting to figure that's the most
At this point, you're the only man who pays attention
to me. I guess I'll have to take what I can get.
At this point, I'm just hoping you stay single too.
Then at least we can share each other's misery!
I wonder what the captain would say if he knew we
were planning to take down Lady Rhea.
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.
Now, onward to Fhirdiad! I'm ready!
The idea of defeating Rhea is beginning to feel more
like a reality.
Some may say that I'm returning her goodwill with
betrayal, but I believe I've worked off my debt.
The real problem is a certain someone else.
That's right. She was my partner, after all. I haven't
seen her since leaving the knights...
I taught him some archery, but we are of different
birth and hold different values.
I was speaking of Catherine.
I have no particular interest in him.
I can see her coming to slaughter me. Driven by her
mixed emotions of love and hate.
Ah! Did you want something?!
Sorry, I was a bit lost in thought...
Or rather, I was thinking about work.
My brother had sorted out all his personal affairs,
but apparently he'd forgotten about his work duties.
So now I've got a ton more work on my plate...
Oh, Brother, why must you be so careless...
Once this war is over, I'm gonna take a vacation
and get some well-earned rest back home with
Greetings, Professor! Nothing to report!
The time has finally come to set out for the
Kingdom Capital, Fhirdiad...
I thought the same thing last month, but I still can't
believe the plan was to ambush Arianrhod...
I know it couldn't be helped, but even I wasn't
let in on the secret. Me! Not gonna lie...that hurt
Ah well, let's forget about that! I'm praying for your
victory and your safe return!
If the enemy forces come to intercept us, chances are
high that we'll clash on the Tailtean Plains.
The Tailtean Plains were the site of a famous battle
in ancient times, right?
That's what some book-type at the library said,
at any rate.
I have a fiancée back home, and I promised her I'd
come back alive.
No matter how tough the fight gets, I won't die.
I have to survive and make it back to her!
Before I left the church, I recall Lady Rhea saying
Something about how she would recover her mother,
no matter what...
Do you think Lady Rhea's mother is buried in
Garreg Mach or something?
I thought you were going to attack the Kingdom
capital, but you attacked Arianrhod instead?
Well, you sure had me fooled! She's a tricksy one,
that Lady Edelgard.
But...this time you really are going for the capital,
right? I wish you the best of luck.
Rumor has it King Dimitri is always accompanied
by a man from Duscur with a terrifying face.
And what's more, this man is said to be so huge
he's often mistaken for a bear!
The Knights of Seiros are led by the archbishop
herself, and the Kingdom army is led by none
other than the king...
I have faith that the Imperial army will prevail,
but it still makes my knees feel a bit wobbly...
Over a thousand years ago now, not long after
the Adrestian Empire was founded...
The first emperor and his army, with the aid
of Seiros, set out on a campaign to the north
with the aim of unifying Fódlan.
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.
Once you set out on your next mission, you won't
be able to have a proper meal for a while, right?
You should eat up while you can. Build up your
physical strength to prepare for the mission.
Seems like a lot of people from House Rowe died
I know Edelgard is saying it's the church's fault, and
she hasn't been shy to express that. But...that doesn't
seem right to me.
My take? There exist some dangerous folks capable
of destroying strongholds with ease...
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
So it's finally time to take on Fhirdiad. Can't wait to
get in there and show 'em what I'm made of!
Hopefully I get a go at that Dimitri guy before all is
said and done...
They say he has inhuman strength, yeah? Best way to
find out is to throw fists with the guy.
It's war, pal. If you can't be blunt on the battlefield,
what are we even fighting for?
He may be the Tempest King of Fhirdiad, but I'm
the Grappling King of the world! My domain is
Grab a front-row seat if you can manage. These arms
of mine will knock some sense back into that
towhead of his.
The war of Fódlan unification is finally reaching
I must surpass myself in the struggle to come if
Her Majesty is to recognize my power.
But don't you see? Your presence would diminish
the grandeur of my achievements!
I intend to. The fate of House Nuvelle hangs in
The culmination of all my studies, all my magical
experiments, shall be unleashed in battle!
You must send me into the field, that I might achieve
greatness in full view of Her Majesty!
If we win this next battle, it won't just be a victory
against the Kingdom, but also the church.
Maybe they'll all die—even the people from the
church who lied to me and locked me up.
I don't care either way. If they died, I would say,
"Well, that happened," and move on.
I don't owe them my compassion. They've never
shown me any.
The war is at its end. Has the time finally come that
I might kill you?
It is true... Those petulant fleas must be picked off
one by one. They are nothing if not persistent.
And if we do not win, then we die. Either has
Seems like the war is gonna end soon.
Once the dust settles, it'll be back to rolling in fat
stacks of gold for me!
Abyss? You're interested in that place, are you?
Ancient sprawling remains deep below
Garreg Mach... That's Abyss.
Some folks have made their home there. Obviously
they all have their reasons and tales to tell.
But only the most enterprising merchant
would venture near it. My advice? Avoid
going there yourself.
Hey, you. Listen up. I've got something to report.
The war is careening headfirst toward its grand
finale. Do me a favor and get through this mess
After the dust settles, maybe I'll go on to guard
other entrances in other parts of the world. I'm a
dreamer, my friend. Always have been.
Word is Garreg Mach's starting to look like a real
With the Empire winning one battle after another,
it seems like the end to the war is finally in sight.
There's hope for recovery now. Even for Abyss.
I hear there was a pretty spectacular battle up there
recently, but we don't hear a lot about that stuff.
There was a lot of talk when it first started, but five
years on... It's just a fact of life.
What? There have been lots of battles on the surface
recently? I hadn't heard! See what I mean?!
Thank you so much. This is just the type of flower
she once loved so dearly.
I can rest easy now.
I must be off. Take especially good care of yourself,
Please, look after Jeralt. She'd have wanted that.
