For some students, this will be their first time
stepping onto a real battlefield.
It's important that they're mentally prepared.
As for me? Ha! Do I look green to you?
You're quite powerful to have beaten us in the
Such a shame you aren't leading our class...
We have only just arrived at the academy, and we're
already being sent out to take care of bandits.
It is a noble mission, but one that will likely require
battle. In practice, there is little difference between
a battle and a war.
Even with the support of the Knights of Seiros,
we must still brace ourselves for the challenge.
Your performance in the mock battle was
exceptional, Professor. You have inspired me to
follow your example and study even more diligently.
Perhaps we could train together sometime. I would
love to test myself against your sword skills again.
Those bandits really didn't think things through,
They had to have known the knights would be
after them the moment they entered the
Fine by me, though. I'm raring for some real combat
experience. Any chance to grow is a good thing.
I hear you've been tasked with hunting down
bandits, right? Meanwhile, my class is stuck
with a downright peaceful mission.
Sounds like you'll be fighting alongside the knights
too. Don't let the monastery down, Teach.
I fully accept the necessity of real battle from time
to time, but it is still a surprise to be tasked with
punishing bandits without warning.
It is a rather different sort of mission. It makes me
wonder what the archbishop is planning...
I've heard your class is hunting thieves.
That mission is very different from the one we
Do you know of the Aegir family? We have long held
the position of prime minister in the Empire.
The Empire's power lies with six noble families,
my family foremost among them.
The full explanation may be time-consuming.
I can give you a moment to get ready, if you
would like to take notes.
All right. I will list the six great noble families.
There's Caspar's father, Count Bergliez, the Minister
of Military Affairs. Then there's Linhardt's father,
Count Hevring, the Minister of Domestic Affairs.
Bernadetta's father, Count Varley, is the Minister of
Religious Affairs. Hubert's father, Marquis Vestra, is
the Minister of the Imperial Household.
Finally we have Duke Gerth, the Minister of
Foreign Affairs, and my own father, Duke Aegir,
the Prime Minister.
One day, I will take his place as the prime minister
of the Empire.
I am more talented than anyone in my class—
even Edelgard. I will lead the Empire to a bright,
There is nothing I cannot achieve.
Swimming through a sea of countless books, tracking
down that single sought-after volume...
It's absolute bliss.
How do the poor fools who spend their days
sharpening swords and polishing armor find
any joy in life?
Hey there, Professor! You here to check in on
Oh, that reminds me. I found this small cloth.
It's kinda weird.
Not really sure what it is, but it works great for
wiping up sweat!
Wh-what is it? I'm not doing anything!
I'm not bothering anybody...am I?
Cake?! Oh, come on... That's just cruel.
Oh, Professor... Hello.
I was just looking for my— Well, it's...it's like a pale
blue cloth. Have you seen it?
Truth is, my, um, my undershirt got blown away by
the wind... A-and it's not important why, it only
matters that it's pale blue.
Eh? Um... OK...
Thank you so much.
Brigid has much more warmth than Fódlan. Even
spring here has coolness!
And you, Professor? Which do you find is worst?
Too hot or too cold weather?
I have agreeance! In Brigid, I am able to be wearing
much lighter clothes.
But you are wearing many things, Professor.
If you are not liking the heat, you should be
wearing lighter clothes.
It is better if you do not approach me.
If you spend too much time around a man of Duscur,
there will be rumors.
For years, the boar prince and I were inseparable.
I know him better than almost anyone else.
So let me give you some advice. Beneath all that
princely polish, he's an animal, nothing more.
He's strong and skilled, sure. But don't place your
trust in him as a human being.
Take care he doesn't chew you up and spit you out.
It's thanks to my adoptive father, Lonato, that a
commoner like me is here at the academy.
He is the very model of chivalry. Someday I'm going
to be just like him.
Our first assignment is to take out some bandits?
Did anyone tell Lady Rhea that people's lives are
I lost my own brother to bandits...
...Is something someone has said at some point,
I'm sure. OK. Not my finest attempt at humor.
Professor, you're the one taking out the bandits?
Heh, that's one way to start your career at
I didn't expect they'd order us to risk our lives here.
Seems a bit extreme, doesn't it?
The cathedral is nice and quiet. It's so relaxing...
Oh, Professor. Did you come to pray to the goddess?
Me too! Shall we pray together?
No? But shall we pray together while you're here?
I've got to find out everyone's likes and dislikes so I
know what to cook. Who knows when it will be my
turn at kitchen duty!
How about you, Professor? Do you like sweet or
Ooh, same! I'll definitely remember that!
Spicy? Ooh, your tastes are so mature! I'll definitely
Felix, Sylvain, and I have known each other since we
were children. His Highness, as well.
Though I should warn you that both Felix and
Sylvain are a bit...challenging at times.
The moment I take my eyes off them, they're off
causing all kinds of trouble. It's always been
Now that you're all the way over here, Professor,

After training, I love tending to the horses or burying
myself in a good pile of books. Ahh, there's truly
It is the duty of every Fódlan noble to demonstrate
piety toward Seiros.
Have you also come to offer your prayers to the

noble birth? After all, devotion is not as essential for
I see. The truth is, I am not a particularly devoted
believer either. But it would be unbecoming for a
noble like me to neglect his prayers, wouldn't it?
The next assignment is to drive out bandits?
Sounds like some training is in order!
Tell me something, Professor. When it comes to a
one-on-one battle, which is better? Strength or skill?
I knew it! When it's all said and done, muscle always
comes out on top.
You might be right. But when it's all said and done,
I still think muscle comes out on top!
I'm so glad to be a student here, if only because I get
to use this library.
Reading books from all the regions of Fódlan...
I feel almost like I'm visiting those places myself.
I'd like to. I don't have many chances to travel...
I agree! They're brimming with the knowledge and
experience of our ancestors.
There were way too many vegetables in today's
meal. The ratio of vegetables to sweets was
Oh! Hi, Professor! Were you just eavesdropping
Well...everyone knows a plateful of sweets is far
preferred to a plateful of vegetables, regardless
Um, Professor? Our next mission is to go after a
group of bandits.
I'm...not very confident. I'm afraid I'll just hold
everyone else back.
I should probably stay behind for this one. Or help
plan the attack instead.
Um, if you'll excuse me...
I'm bored! Maybe I should go into town... But that
would be such a hassle.
Oh! Hi, Professor. I'm rather busy right now, so do
make it quick.
Ah, you can tell? I suppose being a professor has
taught you how to ferret out time wasters.
Are you sure? I thought you'd found me out for a
Professor! Hey, do you know how old
Captain Jeralt is?
That's enough, Leonie. If I don't know, how could
my child know?
It's not normal to forget your own age, you know.
It's kind of worrisome, actually.
By the time you're forgetting your own age,
you're past the point of caring.
I guess if you put it that way, you've got a point...
Inside the cathedral, there is a chapel dedicated to
the Four Saints. Do you know of them?
Saint Indech, Saint Macuil, Saint Cichol, and...
Saint Cethleann! Who is your favorite, Professor?
Now that you are a member of the church, be sure to
familiarize yourself with our teachings and traditions.
Excellent work guiding the students in the mock
battle. Taking command like that? Simply splendid.
And bearing the unknown Crest's power? Yes!
I'm talking about you.
Your talents are incredible, and Lady Rhea's insight
as to your potential is doubly so.
(There's some hair in the device. It looks just like
What is the meaning of this?
You do seem to have a mark of the exceptional

Like the other night, I went on a date with a dashing,
handsome, strong, young knight. Oh, I'm a bit weak
just remembering him. Anyway...
Do you know what that no-good jerk said when we
got back to my room? He said, "What a mess.
I'm afraid to go in there!" Can you believe it?!
You know who cares about keeping everything neat
and tidy? Not me, that's who. "Afraid to go in there."
Some knight he is!
Oh, Professor! How are you today?
I'm just heading out for a mission. I'll be seeing you!
I don't need luck! This will be a piece of cake. I'll be
back before you know it!
What makes you say that? Do you know something
I don't? Are there supernatural elements at play?
Ghosts?! Ah...oh, forget it. I'll be going now.
Have we met?
No. Sorry. You remind me of someone I know.
No. Sorry. Must be my imagination.
That person sure does remind me of somebody, but I
can't figure out who.
Oh, do ya need me for something? Sorry, but I'm
really busy right now.
Thank you for paying me a visit.
Is there anything troubling you? Or is there, perhaps,
something I can help you with?
You seem to be getting along well with the students.
I would advise you to be confident in your abilities.
The rest will fall into place in time.
Believers live their lives by her sacred wisdom.
Please use the library's vast resources to learn more.
I can often be found here, so if there is ever anything
you need, please do not hesitate to pay me a visit.
You look bored. Care to duel?
What? I just wanted to spar...
Do you know about the cardinals? They are the
ones who run the church.
Their identities are a closely guarded secret...
Greetings, Professor! Nothing to report!
Are you settled in here at the monastery yet?
Make sure to have a good look around!
There's much to see!
Like fish! You do know about the pond behind the
dining hall, right? You can fish there! Give it a try!
Things we can't obtain here are likely obtainable by
way of the underground.
Are you unfamiliar with Garreg Mach's
underground? The place is an absolute paradise
for those who can't stay above ground.
Those Abyssian idiots. All they ever do is

The Knights of Seiros are also known as the
shining knights. We are the sword and shield
of the divine Seiros.
There are many orders of knights in the world,
but we are the only one that has the honor of
bearing the name Seiros.
As a member of the church, you should probably
study up on the history of Seiros and the knights.
Zanado, the Red Canyon, is a place of great
significance to the Church of Seiros.
Even members of the church are forbidden from
entering without permission.
To go trampling around in there, causing trouble...
Those bandits truly are morally reprehensible.
Brigid, Almyra, Duscur... Even people from far-off
lands gather here at the academy.
Word of advice, Professor. There are those who
don't think kindly of such people.
I hear the Officers Academy of the monastery was
founded about two centuries ago.
The eastern region of Fódlan was being invaded
by Almyra, and so the archbishop of the time took
measures to prevent the border from being taken.
In order to ensure Fódlan would be safe from
potential threats, she deemed it necessary to
raise a generation of excellence.
That is how the establishment was founded, though
its purpose has changed over the years.
Whoever you are, it doesn't matter much to me.
But I do advise getting out of here before you get
tangled up in trouble.
Unless you've been sent here under someone's
orders. In which case, I'll happily show you a good
time. Heh heh...
Uh-huh... I find the likelihood of you "stumbling"
into Abyss pretty suspect.
Well, I do like people with a healthy curiosity. You
are aware of how dangerous it is down here, yeah?
Hmm... You're that mercenary turned professor,
aren't you? The one who showed up at the monastery
Yeah, you're the one I've heard so much about.
Well, I guess it's fine you're here, then.
You can call me Yuri. You'll want to remember that,
if you ever come down here again.
Ah, it's you. Bit of a trek, coming all the way down
I'll be helping you out now, but just so you know, my
life is still down here.
If you can't find me in the classroom on the surface,
you'll likely find me here instead.
Hmmm. You're that mercenary turned professor,
aren't you? The one who showed up at the monastery
Haven't seen your face before. You're clearly not
from around here.
You don't strike me as the thief or merchant type.
I don't owe you money, do I?
Ah, you're that new teacher everyone's been yapping
about. And yet...you look younger than me. Weird.
Ah, you're that new teacher everyone's been yapping
about. Funny. Next to me, you don't look so tough.
The name's Balthus. Formerly of the Alliance.
Well? Did you come all the way here just to stare at
my rippling abs, or did you want something?
If you're gonna ask me for help on the surface,
it better be real important. I try not to go up there
unless I absolutely have to.
And who might you be? Not an Abyssian, that much
is clear at a glance.
A visitor from above, perhaps? With what purpose?
I'm sure I must have misheard you. Either that,
or you haven't the slightest inkling of where you are.
Are you mocking me? You clearly haven't the
slightest inkling of where you are!
Oh...but of course. You must be the new teacher
specially appointed by Lady Rhea. That is it, yes?
Rumors have been flying underground about you.
Well, then! I am Constance von Nuvelle.
It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance.
Ah. Come to invite me to a lesson or some such,
I prefer not to be aboveground during the day when
I can help it. Unless there are storm clouds above.
Who are you? Wait, shut up, let me guess.
You're...that new professor, right? You just started
teaching up on the surface.
Even here, people have been talking about you.
Not that the gossip got everything right.
Nah. Even here, people have been talking about you.
Not that the gossip got everything right.
I heard you were beautiful, but obviously that was
Oh, Chatterbox. You been looking for me?
I'd prefer not to visit the surface, if I can help it.
I don't wanna run into any knights.
Hello there! Are you that new professor everyone's
Name's Anna. I'm a merchant who slings wares all
across Fódlan...and beyond!
I come in here all the time, so I'm sure our paths will
cross more. Hopefully much more!
Hey, Professor. How's it going? Making lots of coin?
I'd love to catch up, but I'm super busy right now.
Working. For money. You understand.
There's unrest everywhere these days. All of my
fellow merchants seem to be endangered.
I hope things go back to normal soon. People need
more to smile about, aside from my great deals.
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. You're from up top, right?
What business do you have here?
Wait a minute... Ah, got it. You're that new
professor, aren't you? I suppose that means I
have to let you pass.
I guess...welcome to Abyss! This town is full of
rough-and-toughs, so watch your back down here.
Hey. What are you lookin' at?
I don't want any trouble. Get lost.
Such an innocent face you have...
This isn't a place for innocent people.
Especially not if you're carrying money.
Ah, I see. So you are Jeralt's child. You so resemble
I did indeed. I was acquainted with your parents.
I've been wanting to speak with you for a while now.
I am nothing more than a common monk. I knew
your parents...once upon a time.
I've been gone from the monastery for some time
now because... Well, it matters not.
Might I...ask a favor of you?
Do you mind terribly picking up some fresh flowers
to place upon your mother's grave?
I am certain she'd be deeply moved to receive a gift
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.
