(There's some hair in the device. It looks just like my hair...)

Hanneman

What is the meaning of this?

Hanneman

You do seem to have a mark of the exceptional about you. I only wish Seteth would follow your example.

Edelgard

link
Edelgard (Recruited)

For some students, this will be their first time stepping onto a real battlefield.

Edelgard (Recruited)

It's important that they're mentally prepared.

Edelgard (Recruited)

As for me? Ha! Do I look green to you?

Edelgard (Not Recruited)

You're quite powerful to have beaten us in the mock battle.

Edelgard (Not Recruited)

Such a shame you aren't leading our class...

Dimitri

link
Dimitri (Recruited)

We have only just arrived at the academy, and we're already being sent out to take care of bandits.

Dimitri (Recruited)

It is a noble mission, but one that will likely require battle. In practice, there is little difference between a battle and a war.

Dimitri (Recruited)

Even with the support of the Knights of Seiros, we must still brace ourselves for the challenge.

Dimitri (Not Recruited)

Your performance in the mock battle was exceptional, Professor. You have inspired me to follow your example and study even more diligently.

Dimitri (Not Recruited)

Perhaps we could train together sometime. I would love to test myself against your sword skills again.

Claude

link
Claude (Recruited)

Those bandits really didn't think things through, did they?

Claude (Recruited)

They had to have known the knights would be after them the moment they entered the monastery's turf.

Claude (Recruited)

Fine by me, though. I'm raring for some real combat experience. Any chance to grow is a good thing.

Claude (Not Recruited)

I hear you've been tasked with hunting down bandits, right? Meanwhile, my class is stuck with a downright peaceful mission.

Claude (Not Recruited)

Sounds like you'll be fighting alongside the knights too. Don't let the monastery down, Teach.

Hubert

link
Hubert (Recruited)

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.

Hubert (Recruited)

It is a rather different sort of mission. It makes me wonder what the archbishop is planning...

Hubert (Not Recruited)

I've heard your class is hunting thieves.

Hubert (Not Recruited)

That mission is very different from the one we were given.

Ferdinand

link
Ferdinand

Do you know of the Aegir family? We have long held the position of prime minister in the Empire.

Ferdinand

The Empire's power lies with six noble families, my family foremost among them.

Ferdinand

The full explanation may be time-consuming. I can give you a moment to get ready, if you would like to take notes.

Ferdinand

All right. I will list the six great noble families.

link
Ferdinand

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.

Ferdinand

Bernadetta's father, Count Varley, is the Minister of Religious Affairs. Hubert's father, Marquis Vestra, is the Minister of the Imperial Household.

Ferdinand

Finally we have Duke Gerth, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, and my own father, Duke Aegir, the Prime Minister.

Ferdinand

One day, I will take his place as the prime minister of the Empire.

Ferdinand

I am more talented than anyone in my class— even Edelgard. I will lead the Empire to a bright, enlightened future.

Ferdinand

There is nothing I cannot achieve.

Ferdinand

There is nothing I cannot achieve.

Linhardt

Linhardt

Swimming through a sea of countless books, tracking down that single sought-after volume...

Linhardt

It's absolute bliss.

Linhardt

How do the poor fools who spend their days sharpening swords and polishing armor find any joy in life?

Caspar

link
Caspar

Hey there, Professor! You here to check in on my training?

Caspar

Oh, that reminds me. I found this small cloth. It's kinda weird.

Caspar

Not really sure what it is, but it works great for wiping up sweat!

Caspar

Wh-what is it? I'm not doing anything!

Bernadetta

I'm not bothering anybody...am I?

Bernadetta

Cake?! Oh, come on... That's just cruel.

Dorothea

Dorothea

Oh, Professor... Hello.

Dorothea

I was just looking for my— Well, it's...it's like a pale blue cloth. Have you seen it?

Dorothea

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.

Dorothea

Eh? Um... OK...

Dorothea

Thank you so much.

Dorothea

Dorothea

Petra

link
Petra

Brigid has much more warmth than Fódlan. Even spring here has coolness!

Petra

And you, Professor? Which do you find is worst? Too hot or too cold weather?

Petra

I have agreeance! In Brigid, I am able to be wearing much lighter clothes.

Petra

But you are wearing many things, Professor. If you are not liking the heat, you should be wearing lighter clothes.

Dedue

link
Dedue

It is better if you do not approach me.

Dedue

If you spend too much time around a man of Duscur, there will be rumors.

Felix

link
Felix

For years, the boar prince and I were inseparable. I know him better than almost anyone else.

Felix

So let me give you some advice. Beneath all that princely polish, he's an animal, nothing more.

Felix

He's strong and skilled, sure. But don't place your trust in him as a human being.

Felix

Take care he doesn't chew you up and spit you out.

Ashe

link
Ashe

It's thanks to my adoptive father, Lonato, that a commoner like me is here at the academy.

Ashe

He is the very model of chivalry. Someday I'm going to be just like him.

Sylvain

link
Sylvain (Recruited)

Our first assignment is to take out some bandits? Did anyone tell Lady Rhea that people's lives are at stake?

Sylvain (Recruited)

I lost my own brother to bandits...

Sylvain (Recruited)

...Is something someone has said at some point, I'm sure. OK. Not my finest attempt at humor.

Sylvain (Not Recruited)

Professor, you're the one taking out the bandits? Heh, that's one way to start your career at the academy.

Sylvain (Not Recruited)

I didn't expect they'd order us to risk our lives here. Seems a bit extreme, doesn't it?

Mercedes

link
Mercedes

The cathedral is nice and quiet. It's so relaxing...

Mercedes

Oh, Professor. Did you come to pray to the goddess?

Mercedes

Me too! Shall we pray together?

Mercedes

No? But shall we pray together while you're here?

Annette

link
Annette

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!

Annette

How about you, Professor? Do you like sweet or spicy food?

Annette

Ooh, same! I'll definitely remember that!

Annette

Spicy? Ooh, your tastes are so mature! I'll definitely remember that.

Ingrid

link
Ingrid (Recruited)

Felix, Sylvain, and I have known each other since we were children. His Highness, as well.

Ingrid (Recruited)

Though I should warn you that both Felix and Sylvain are a bit...challenging at times.

Ingrid (Recruited)

The moment I take my eyes off them, they're off causing all kinds of trouble. It's always been that way.

Ingrid (Not Recruited)

Now that you're all the way over here, Professor, care to join me in some training?

Ingrid (Not Recruited)

After training, I love tending to the horses or burying myself in a good pile of books. Ahh, there's truly nothing better!

Lorenz

link
Lorenz

It is the duty of every Fódlan noble to demonstrate piety toward Seiros.

Lorenz

Have you also come to offer your prayers to the goddess, Professor?

Lorenz

You don't sound terribly sure. Perhaps you are not of noble birth? After all, devotion is not as essential for a commoner.

Lorenz

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?

Raphael

link
Raphael

The next assignment is to drive out bandits? Sounds like some training is in order!

Raphael

Tell me something, Professor. When it comes to a one-on-one battle, which is better? Strength or skill?

Raphael

I knew it! When it's all said and done, muscle always comes out on top.

Raphael

You might be right. But when it's all said and done, I still think muscle comes out on top!

Ignatz

link
Ignatz

I'm so glad to be a student here, if only because I get to use this library.

Ignatz

Reading books from all the regions of Fódlan... I feel almost like I'm visiting those places myself.

Ignatz

I'd like to. I don't have many chances to travel...

Ignatz

I agree! They're brimming with the knowledge and experience of our ancestors.

Lysithea

link
Lysithea

There were way too many vegetables in today's meal. The ratio of vegetables to sweets was completely skewed...

Lysithea

Oh! Hi, Professor! Were you just eavesdropping on me?

Lysithea

Well...everyone knows a plateful of sweets is far preferred to a plateful of vegetables, regardless of age.

Marianne

link
Marianne (Recruited)

Um, Professor? Our next mission is to go after a group of bandits.

Marianne (Recruited)

I'm...not very confident. I'm afraid I'll just hold everyone else back.

Marianne (Recruited)

I should probably stay behind for this one. Or help plan the attack instead.

Marianne (Not Recruited)

Uh. Hello.

Marianne (Not Recruited)

Um, if you'll excuse me...

Hilda

link
Hilda

I'm bored! Maybe I should go into town... But that would be such a hassle.

Hilda

Oh! Hi, Professor. I'm rather busy right now, so do make it quick.

Hilda

Ah, you can tell? I suppose being a professor has taught you how to ferret out time wasters.

Hilda

Are you sure? I thought you'd found me out for a moment there...

Leonie & Jeralt

link
Leonie

Professor! Hey, do you know how old Captain Jeralt is?

Jeralt

That's enough, Leonie. If I don't know, how could my child know?

Leonie

It's not normal to forget your own age, you know. It's kind of worrisome, actually.

Jeralt

By the time you're forgetting your own age, you're past the point of caring.

Leonie

I guess if you put it that way, you've got a point...

Seteth & Flayn

link
Seteth

Inside the cathedral, there is a chapel dedicated to the Four Saints. Do you know of them?

Seteth

Saint Indech, Saint Macuil, Saint Cichol, and...

Flayn

Saint Cethleann! Who is your favorite, Professor?

Seteth

Now that you are a member of the church, be sure to familiarize yourself with our teachings and traditions.

Hanneman

link
Hanneman

Excellent work guiding the students in the mock battle. Taking command like that? Simply splendid.

Hanneman

And bearing the unknown Crest's power? Yes! I'm talking about you.

Hanneman

Your talents are incredible, and Lady Rhea's insight as to your potential is doubly so.

Manuela

link
Manuela

You know, Professor, there are some things I'll just never understand.

Manuela

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...

Manuela

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?!

Manuela

You know who cares about keeping everything neat and tidy? Not me, that's who. "Afraid to go in there." Some knight he is!

Alois

link
Alois

Oh, Professor! How are you today?

Alois

I'm just heading out for a mission. I'll be seeing you!

Alois

I don't need luck! This will be a piece of cake. I'll be back before you know it!

Alois

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.

Shamir

Shamir

Shamir

No. Sorry. You remind me of someone I know.

Shamir

No. Sorry. Must be my imagination.

Rhea

Rhea

Thank you for paying me a visit.

Rhea

Is there anything troubling you? Or is there, perhaps, something I can help you with?

Rhea

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.

Rhea

Believers live their lives by her sacred wisdom. Please use the library's vast resources to learn more.

Rhea

I can often be found here, so if there is ever anything you need, please do not hesitate to pay me a visit.

Gatekeeper

Gatekeeper

Greetings, Professor! Nothing to report!

Gatekeeper

Are you settled in here at the monastery yet? Make sure to have a good look around! There's much to see!

Gatekeeper

Like fish! You do know about the pond behind the dining hall, right? You can fish there! Give it a try!

Knight of Seiros

link
Knight of Seiros (Not Recruited)

We will accompany you on your assignment. We don't want anything to happen to our precious students.

Knight of Seiros (Not Recruited)

If any of you run into trouble, we'll step in and help out!

Knight of Seiros

link
Knight of Seiros (Not Recruited)

The Knights of Seiros are also known as the shining knights. We are the sword and shield of the divine Seiros.

Knight of Seiros (Not Recruited)

There are many orders of knights in the world, but we are the only one that has the honor of bearing the name Seiros.

Knight of Seiros (Not Recruited)

As a member of the church, you should probably study up on the history of Seiros and the knights.

Monk

link
Monk (Not Recruited)

Zanado, the Red Canyon, is a place of great significance to the Church of Seiros.

Monk (Not Recruited)

Even members of the church are forbidden from entering without permission.

Monk (Not Recruited)

To go trampling around in there, causing trouble... Those bandits truly are morally reprehensible.

Student

link
Student (Not Recruited)

Brigid, Almyra, Duscur... Even people from far-off lands gather here at the academy.

Student (Not Recruited)

Word of advice, Professor. There are those who don't think kindly of such people.

Knight of Seiros

link
Knight of Seiros (Not Recruited)

I hear the Officers Academy of the monastery was founded about two centuries ago.

Knight of Seiros (Not Recruited)

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.

Knight of Seiros (Not Recruited)

In order to ensure Fódlan would be safe from potential threats, she deemed it necessary to raise a generation of excellence.

Knight of Seiros (Not Recruited)

That is how the establishment was founded, though its purpose has changed over the years.

Yuri

Yuri

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.

Yuri

Unless you've been sent here under someone's orders. In which case, I'll happily show you a good time. Heh heh...

Yuri

Uh-huh... I find the likelihood of you "stumbling" into Abyss pretty suspect.

Yuri

Well, I do like people with a healthy curiosity. You are aware of how dangerous it is down here, yeah?

Yuri

Hmm... You're that mercenary turned professor, aren't you? The one who showed up at the monastery kinda recently.

Yuri

Yeah, you're the one I've heard so much about. Well, I guess it's fine you're here, then.

Yuri

You can call me Yuri. You'll want to remember that, if you ever come down here again.

link
Yuri (Recruited)

Ah, it's you. Bit of a trek, coming all the way down here, huh?

Yuri (Recruited)

I'll be helping you out now, but just so you know, my life is still down here.

Yuri (Recruited)

If you can't find me in the classroom on the surface, you'll likely find me here instead.

Balthus

Balthus

Haven't seen your face before. You're clearly not from around here.

Balthus

You don't strike me as the thief or merchant type. I don't owe you money, do I?

Balthus

Ah, you're that new teacher everyone's been yapping about. And yet...you look younger than me. Weird.

Balthus

Ah, you're that new teacher everyone's been yapping about. Funny. Next to me, you don't look so tough.

Balthus

The name's Balthus. Formerly of the Alliance.

link
Balthus (Recruited)

Well? Did you come all the way here just to stare at my rippling abs, or did you want something?

Balthus (Recruited)

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.

Constance

Constance

And who might you be? Not an Abyssian, that much is clear at a glance.

Constance

A visitor from above, perhaps? With what purpose?

Constance

I'm sure I must have misheard you. Either that, or you haven't the slightest inkling of where you are.

Constance

Are you mocking me? You clearly haven't the slightest inkling of where you are!

Constance

Oh...but of course. You must be the new teacher specially appointed by Lady Rhea. That is it, yes?

Constance

Rumors have been flying underground about you. Well, then! I am Constance von Nuvelle.

Constance

It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance. Ahaha!

Hapi

Nah. Even here, people have been talking about you. Not that the gossip got everything right.

Hapi

I heard you were beautiful, but obviously that was an exaggeration.

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

Abysskeeper
