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

Hanneman
volume_up

What is the meaning of this?

Hanneman
volume_up

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

Edelgard

Edelgard (Recruited)
volume_up

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

Edelgard (Recruited)
volume_up

It's important that they're mentally prepared.

Edelgard (Recruited)
volume_up

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

Edelgard (Not Recruited)
volume_up

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

Edelgard (Not Recruited)
volume_up

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

Dimitri

link
Dimitri (Recruited)
volume_up

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

Dimitri (Recruited)
volume_up

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)
volume_up

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

Dimitri (Not Recruited)
volume_up

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)
volume_up

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

Claude

link
Claude (Recruited)
volume_up

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

Claude (Recruited)
volume_up

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

Claude (Recruited)
volume_up

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

Claude (Not Recruited)
volume_up

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

Claude (Not Recruited)
volume_up

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

Hubert

link
Hubert (Recruited)
volume_up

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)
volume_up

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

Hubert (Not Recruited)
volume_up

I've heard your class is hunting thieves.

Hubert (Not Recruited)
volume_up

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

Ferdinand

link
Ferdinand
volume_up

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

Ferdinand
volume_up

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

Ferdinand
volume_up

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

Ferdinand
volume_up

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

link
Ferdinand
volume_up

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
volume_up

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

Ferdinand
volume_up

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

Ferdinand
volume_up

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

Ferdinand
volume_up

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

Ferdinand
volume_up

There is nothing I cannot achieve.

Ferdinand

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

Caspar
volume_up

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

Caspar
volume_up

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

Caspar

Dorothea

Dorothea

Oh, Professor... Hello.

Dorothea
volume_up

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

Dorothea
volume_up

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
volume_up

Eh? Um... OK...

Dorothea

Thank you so much.

Petra

Petra
volume_up

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

Petra
volume_up

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

Petra
volume_up

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

Petra
volume_up

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

Dedue

Dedue
volume_up

It is better if you do not approach me.

Dedue
volume_up

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

Felix

link
Felix
volume_up

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

Felix
volume_up

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

Felix
volume_up

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

Felix
volume_up

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

Ashe

link
Ashe
volume_up

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

Ashe
volume_up

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

Sylvain

link
Sylvain (Recruited)
volume_up

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

Sylvain (Recruited)
volume_up

I lost my own brother to bandits...

Sylvain (Recruited)
volume_up

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

Sylvain (Not Recruited)
volume_up

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

Sylvain (Not Recruited)
volume_up

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

Mercedes

link
Mercedes
volume_up

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

Mercedes
volume_up

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

Mercedes
volume_up

Me too! Shall we pray together?

Mercedes
volume_up

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

Annette

link
Annette
volume_up

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
volume_up

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

Annette
volume_up

Ooh, same! I'll definitely remember that!

Annette
volume_up

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

Ingrid

link
Ingrid (Recruited)
volume_up

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

Ingrid (Recruited)
volume_up

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

Ingrid (Recruited)
volume_up

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)
volume_up

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

Ingrid (Not Recruited)
volume_up

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
volume_up

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

Lorenz
volume_up

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

Lorenz
volume_up

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

Lorenz
volume_up

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
volume_up

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

Raphael
volume_up

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

Raphael
volume_up

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

Raphael
volume_up

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

Ignatz

link
Ignatz
volume_up

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

Ignatz
volume_up

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

Ignatz
volume_up

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

Ignatz
volume_up

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

Lysithea

link
Lysithea
volume_up

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

Lysithea
volume_up

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

Lysithea
volume_up

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

Marianne

link
Marianne (Recruited)
volume_up

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

Marianne (Recruited)
volume_up

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

Marianne (Recruited)
volume_up

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

Marianne (Not Recruited)
volume_up

Uh. Hello.

Marianne (Not Recruited)
volume_up

Um, if you'll excuse me...

Hilda

link
Hilda
volume_up

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

Hilda
volume_up

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

Hilda
volume_up

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

Hilda
volume_up

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

Leonie & Jeralt

link
Leonie
volume_up

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

Jeralt
volume_up

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

Leonie
volume_up

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

Jeralt
volume_up

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

Leonie
volume_up

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

Seteth & Flayn

Seteth
volume_up

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
volume_up

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

Hanneman

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

Manuela

Manuela

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

Manuela
volume_up

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
volume_up

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
volume_up

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

Alois

Alois

Alois
volume_up

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

Alois
volume_up

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

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.

Gatekeeper

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!

Knight of Seiros

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)
volume_up

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)
volume_up

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)
volume_up

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

Monk

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)
volume_up

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

Student

Student (Not Recruited)

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

Student (Not Recruited)
volume_up

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

Knight of Seiros

link
Knight of Seiros (Not Recruited)
volume_up

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

Knight of Seiros (Not Recruited)
volume_up

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)
volume_up

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)
volume_up

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
volume_up

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

Yuri
volume_up

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

Yuri
volume_up

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

Yuri
volume_up

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

Yuri
volume_up

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.

Yuri (Recruited)

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

Yuri (Recruited)
volume_up

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

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

Balthus

Balthus

Balthus (Recruited)

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