Ferdinand

I have lost my dominion. My nobility may seem like nothing more than a title.

Ferdinand

But I will never lose my noble heart.

Ferdinand

I will stop Edelgard, even if it costs me my life.

Ferdinand

I have turned my blade against her now. I cannot go back on that decision.

Ferdinand

Professor... Do you think I chose the wrong path?

Ferdinand

You are right...

Linhardt

link
Linhardt

The promise was made five years ago, but I must say I'm rather impressed by how many of us managed to make it.

Linhardt

Personally, I only showed up because I hoped to see you again, Professor.

Linhardt

I've been with my family in the Empire until recently. I admit to feeling a little guilty betraying Her Majesty...but only a little.

Linhardt

Now that we're all together again, I suppose the fighting will begin soon.

Caspar

Caspar

Hey, Professor! You won't believe what happened!

Caspar

I figured I couldn't go back to the Empire after Garreg Mach fell, so I started drifting across the Kingdom and Alliance.

Caspar

Then I just happened to run into our old class, so we came back to the monastery together!

Bernadetta

Bernadetta

Ah, at last, I return to my domain! My lonely paradise! My realm of exquisite solitude!

Bernadetta

Huh? Professor? Is that, um. Is that you?

Bernadetta

You, um. You didn't hear that just now, did you?

Bernadetta

Oh! Forget you heard anything!

Bernadetta

Right. You didn't? Well, um. Good.

You, um. You didn't hear that just now, did you?

Bernadetta

Oh! Forget you heard anything!

Bernadetta

Dorothea

Dorothea

Laaa-la-laaa-la-laaa...

Dorothea

Professor! Oh my! It's so good to see you.

Dorothea

These days, so many old friends seem to be disappearing. But you... You're here!

Dorothea

It's incredible to see you again after five years!

Dorothea

I have a feeling your name will go down in history.

Petra

link
Petra

Edelgard is controlling the Empire. She is putting the pressure on the Kingdom and Alliance.

Petra

Empire and religion are at open war. It will be... difficult for us at first.

Petra

But corrupt nobles are many. That means the common people will rebel and be joining our side.

Petra

With you, Professor, the battle tides will...ah, will turn. I have certainty.

Felix

link
Felix

A country with no king has no future.

Felix

That's why I made my way here. Professor, don't let me down.

Felix

Hmph. You'll understand soon enough.

Felix

Yes, let's. Find me a worthy opponent to battle, and I'll be content.

Sylvain

link
Sylvain

I left home without telling my father. Did you know that?

Sylvain

I can just imagine my father's face contorted in anger and the delightful words he must have used to describe me.

Sylvain

Kind of a scary image, actually. But regardless, I've put my faith in you, Professor.

Sylvain

And I'm hoping I haven't made a big mistake.

Mercedes

link
Mercedes

You're here, Professor, along with everyone from our old class. It's like we've gone back in time!

Mercedes

When I think that I'll be around you again, all of my sorrows just drift away.

Mercedes

Hmm, I understand. Especially with Lady Rhea missing...

Mercedes

It sounds like the Kingdom and Alliance have been in a sorry state too. But we can't let that get us down!

Mercedes

Hmm, yes. I'll at least try not to hold anyone back.

Mercedes

Let's work together for the common good, like we did five years ago!

Annette

link
Annette

Members of the knights tell me that Father left their ranks five years ago.

Annette

They say he announced he was returning to the Kingdom, but nobody's heard from him since.

Annette

I haven't received word that he went back home to Mother...

Annette

Where could he be... Where are you, Father...

Ingrid

link
Ingrid

Professor, I have a proposal.

Ingrid

Why not go beyond the Knights of Seiros—instead, uniting with allies from all across Fódlan to fight for our cause?

Ingrid

Looking back, it would have been best to ally with the Kingdom and join forces against the Empire. But now the Kingdom is not exactly... Well...

Raphael

link
Raphael

Fighting alongside you and everyone else is a dream come true, Professor!

Raphael

And don't worry about my little sis. Right now she's back home helping out with the family business.

Raphael

I kinda figured I was gonna be stuck going back and taking over for her.

Raphael

But thanks to you guys, I get to work on my dream of becoming a proper knight!

Ignatz

link
Ignatz

It's been fixed up quite a bit, but its battle scars aren't so easily erased...

Ignatz

To think that a glorious cathedral, with a thousand year history...would end up like this.

Ignatz

I'll rebuild this place someday. This cathedral is the symbol of Fódlan.

Ignatz

Maybe I should paint a picture of the beautiful cathedral of old, while I still remember what it looked like...

Lysithea

link
Lysithea

I've grown weary and impatient—these past five years, my hands have been bound.

Lysithea

But now, I can finally take action with a clear goal. I'm grateful to you and to everyone.

Lysithea

Nonsense. Your presence steeled everyone's resolve.

Lysithea

Down with the Empire! Surely peace will soon follow if the Empire is overthrown. Then my parents can finally find peace themselves.

Marianne

link
Marianne

Even with the church in shambles, we can still pray.

Marianne

The goddess will surely hear our prayers, but still...

Marianne

I hope the church can return to its former beauty someday.

Hilda

link
Hilda

Hey, Professor? I know that we didn't plan to stop at the monastery, but I'm glad we did.

Hilda

I'm happy to be here with everyone again.

Hilda

What good does grimness do us? Let's try to enjoy our time together while we can.

Hilda

Right? It's as though we went back in time five years. I feel like my old self again.

Leonie

link
Leonie

It's not just for my village that I'm fighting alongside you here, you know.

Leonie

It's also that Captain Jeralt asked me, his first and greatest apprentice, to look out for you.

Leonie

Of course, it wouldn't be enough just to keep you alive. It's my duty to make sure you win too.

Leonie

So, do your best, Professor. And count on me to watch your back.

Seteth

link
Seteth

With the return of its knights, Garreg Mach is finally coming back to life.

Seteth

The Church of Seiros will follow you from now on, but please do not abandon the search for Lady Rhea.

Seteth

Thank you. I know the battles ahead will be dire, but we will support you with all our strength.

Seteth

Wherever she is, Rhea is doubtlessly waiting for you. Please do not let her down.

Flayn

Flayn

Professor, I am so glad you are unharmed!

Flayn

No matter the path you walk, I will be with you every step of the way.

Flayn

Anything you ask of me, I shall see it through. You saved my life, and I am in your debt.

Hanneman

link
Hanneman

Thankfully, it appears the records and equipment I need for my research have not been damaged.

Hanneman

I am most curious though. You say you were asleep for five whole years? Incredible.

Hanneman

Perhaps this is another effect of your Crest. I do look forward to investigating you in greater detail.

Hanneman

Wonderful news! I am most excited to begin. We must find the time, of course.

Hanneman

I'll have to be content with observing you wherever you go, then. I cannot waste any opportunity!

Manuela

link
Manuela

My, Professor. You haven't changed a bit!

Manuela

At your age, I'd expect your whole demeanor to have changed greatly over five years...

Manuela

Though I suppose I haven't changed either, right? Thank you for noticing, by the way.

Manuela

Ah, just the two of us, forever young. Oh, let me have my fun.

Alois

link
Alois

I'd given up on ever seeing you again. Where have you been hiding?

Alois

Anyway, now that we're reunited in the land of the living, I must fulfill my promise!

Alois

The promise I made to the captain, to keep you safe! I can't believe you've forgotten. How cold...

Alois

That's right! I promised the captain I'd protect you in his stead, and now I'll make good on my word!

Catherine

link
Catherine

In Lady Rhea's absence, I will follow you. That's what she would want me to do.

Catherine

Know that wherever you might lead us, I'll continue searching for Lady Rhea.

Catherine

Good, because I will not budge on that point. Welcome back, Professor.

Catherine

I don't care how much trouble it is! I will rescue Lady Rhea, at all costs.

Shamir

link
Shamir

I'm more of a mercenary than a knight these days. I work to get paid.

Shamir

I never was too attached to Fódlan. I was considering leaving soon...

Shamir

But I might change my mind if you're around.

Cyril

link
Cyril

I don't know anything about rebuilding, but I can sure do my best to clean up the mess.

Cyril

I'm gonna keep Lady Rhea's room spotless, so she can use it right away whenever she gets back.

Cyril

You gotta find her, Professor. You just gotta.

Gatekeeper

link
Gatekeeper

Greetings, Professor! Nothing to report!

Gatekeeper

You know, it's such a thrill to be able to greet you like this again!

Gatekeeper

I almost died as well in the battle five years ago, but I won't allow any enemies to get into this place again. I promise you that!

Gatekeeper

Even if the Death Knight shows up, I'll be sure to... Well, for now I'll keep training so I can eventually feel confident that I can stop him!

Knight of Seiros

link
Knight of Seiros

It seems that in the last five years, the monks here have left this place for the town below.

Knight of Seiros

However, once they learn of our return, perhaps they'll come back.

Knight of Seiros

I hope the monastery can return to normal some day...

Knight of Seiros

link
Knight of Seiros

During his search for Her Grace, the archbishop, Seteth has visited churches all across the land.

Knight of Seiros

It served to demonstrate to the devout across Fódlan that the Church of Seiros is still going strong.

Knight of Seiros

As a result, the faithful are not currently in a state of chaos.

Soldier

Soldier

I come from the Empire, but I have no intention of ever returning.

Soldier

This war the emperor instigated has caused nothing but trouble and pain.

Soldier

I want this war to end... And that's why I'm here, fighting with you!

Boy

link
Boy

The town I'd been living in came under attack by the Empire's army...

Boy

My parents were both caught up in the fighting and killed.

Boy

I've got no home to go back to anymore... So I guess I may as well stay here.

Yuri

link Silver Snow
Yuri

Well, hello. It's been a while, hasn't it? Are you really so surprised to see me here?

Yuri

I flew here just as soon as I heard you were alive. I care more than you may realize.

Yuri

Are you now? I will admit, hearing that does make my heart flutter a bit.

Yuri

Yes. Let's.

Yuri

So long as our efforts are aligned, I'll happily work alongside you.

Balthus

link Silver Snow
Balthus

These past five years have been so chaotic, even the bounty hunters backed off. I kinda miss the chase.

Balthus

I don't have family ties worth fighting for, so these muscles are up for grabs. Use me as you see fit, pal.

Balthus

You're a smart one. Just point me at a problem and I'll smash it up for ya.

Balthus

By that, you mean, "Thank you, Magnanimous King of Grappling!" Yeah? Well, you're welcome.

Balthus

If you're worried my skills have dulled from disuse, think again. I've been fighting thieves to stay sharp.

Constance

link Silver Snow
Constance

Ahaha! You have the look of someone relieved to see me.

Constance

Before you ask, yes. My superior spellcraft is yours. It's your reward for waiting so patiently for me.

Constance

I'm sure that you need me, and that is enough. I recommend that you accept my generous offer.

Constance

Your quick acceptance of the truth is gratifying.

Constance

But my assistance has a price. I expect you to aid me in fulfilling my dream of restoring House Nuvelle.

Hapi

link Silver Snow
Hapi

You're back, finally! I've been waiting for so long.

Hapi

I thought you might have died. But I didn't have anywhere else to go, so...I stayed here.

Hapi

I'll think about forgiving you.

Hapi

You're welcome. It wasn't easy.

Hapi

I've been kinda lonely. As you might have noticed, we've lost a few people down here.

Anna

link
Anna

Abyss? You're interested in that place, are you?

Anna

Ancient sprawling remains deep below Garreg Mach... That's Abyss.

Anna

Some folks have made their home there. Obviously they all have their reasons and tales to tell.

Anna

But only the most enterprising merchant would venture near it. My advice? Avoid going there yourself.

Abysskeeper

link Silver Snow
Abysskeeper

Hey, you. Listen up. I've got something to report.

Abysskeeper

It's you. You're still alive! It's been five whole years, hasn't it? Time flies when you're standing guard.

Abysskeeper

That's right. I've been here the whole time. Day in and day out. Not like I have anywhere else to be.

Abysskeeper

Looks like the Knights of Seiros have returned. I wonder if Mr. Backup is back too...

Rogue

Rogue

A lot of folks cleared out once the fighting started.

Rogue

People are saying it was the church that used to keep order around here.

But it's Yuri who's saving us from complete chaos.

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, won't you?

Monk

Please, look after Jeralt. She'd have wanted that.
