Professor. At last, the end is nigh.
I love the Empire. Part of me wants it to survive.
But I know that is not reasonable. The Empire's time
What we need now is a mighty leader who can
rebuild Fódlan and rule it as a single nation.
Nonetheless, it saddens me that we will not have an
They used to call Enbarr the city of Seiros...
To assault it, together with the knights, is surreal.
If Seiros were alive today, I wonder what she might
make of our war...
In Enbarr, there was once a Southern Church, and
apparently a bishop was dispatched to it.
A hundred years ago, the Southern Church became
entangled in an insurrection.
Until five years ago, the Empire and the church
maintained a certain distance from one another.
It's such a relief that we've made it this far without
having to fight my father.
Hey, don't try and scare me!
You bet I'm scared! The Imperial army hasn't lost a
single battle with my father on the field!
If he turns up as a reinforcement during the assault,
we might lose. I better make my peace with that.
Professor! My, um, my mother might be in the city.
I don't have many good memories of her if I'm being
honest, but she's dearer to me than my father.
If you happen to see her, please make sure she's not
caught up in all the fighting.
She's only a civil servant, so hopefully she takes a
cue from her Bernie and stays inside.
The whole of the capital is going to be
The city has such a long heritage... Even so, perhaps
it deserves to be reduced to ashes for once.
But we can't let the commonfolk get hurt. We should
try to confine the damage to the noble section
Five years ago...Edelgard said a thing to me.
Brigid is a vassal of the Empire.
But she also said I always have the freedom to be
choosing whether I am with or not with her.
I will become the ruler of Brigid. So she said I must
make my own path.
So now, my path and her path will be colliding.
The Death Knight is no ordinary knight.
I will prey upon him. I will quench my blade's thirst
with his blood.
His focus is on fighting you, I'm sure. But mine will
be the last face he sees.
Those things appeared as soon as we got ourselves
set up in Fort Merceus.
So Enbarr, the capital of the Empire. It's finally time.
I never thought I'd live this long.
It's like any battle, really—stay calm, stay focused.
Don't give in to the enemy or your own fear.
Hey, I'm always serious! When I'm chasing girls or
preparing for battle, always serious. That's me...
Striking down the Empire is my offering to
Heh, I left the Kingdom... What am I saying?
It's been so long since I've been to the
I used to go to the opera there with my mother
I never thought my return would be like this...
Enbarr... Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine
I'd be returning like this.
Of course, most of the nobles in the Empire make
their home in the capital.
In the Kingdom, all nobles live in their own domains.
So if the capital is attacked, it doesn't necessarily
affect them directly.
What will happen to the Imperial nobles when their
capital becomes a battlefield?
Once this battle is over, what will become of
Faerghus and Fódlan?
Peace you say? It sounds so...foreign, so unattainable.
But maybe...just maybe.
My hope is for a world at peace. A world in which
this present turmoil is a thing of the past—the stuff
I believe those who survive the atrocities of war have
a duty to create a new, better world.
So the sooner we can stamp out such turmoil,
We must win, Professor. There is no alternative here.
I won't allow for anything else.
I have been to the Kingdom capital before, but never
to the Imperial one.
They say it is the biggest city in all Fódlan, so we will
no doubt have many civilians to worry about.
I hope we can preserve the city. If it is destroyed in
the battle, the people will face hardship.
I would say we should avoid the use of excessive
force, but I suppose that hinges upon the Empire's
terms of engagement.
We're heading up to Enbarr next. I hope I make it
back safe so I can tell my little sis about it!
I hear they got a neat opera house there where
Manuela used to perform. What was it called again?
Nah, that doesn't sound right!
Ah, that's the one!
My little sis always goes on about how much she'd
like to see them perform.
I know we can't see a show, but do you think we
could at least see the building?
We're about to put the finishing touches on this war.
I wonder how Fódlan will look without the backdrop
of death and destruction. I can't wait to see it!
On the other hand, I'm terrified of what the future
might hold. Who knows if I'll survive the assault on
Invading the capital and smashing the Empire.
I wonder if doing so could really end this war.
Care to share your thoughts, Professor?
You say that with such confidence. I want to believe
that it's true.
Perhaps you feel similarly to me. The whole mess
puts me on edge.
Although for now, better to focus my efforts on the
fight at hand.
So, if we win the war...will you become the ruler
You seem unsure, so I guess anything is possible.
For what it's worth, I think you'd make a good ruler.
You could bring peace to the land...
Fighting in the capital? Ugh! And we're fighting
against Edelgard! Double ugh!
But with you leading us, Professor, I know we'll win.
Yeah! Wahoo! Fighting!
I'm a little scared, to be honest. I'm just shouting to
relieve the tension, but I'll be fine.
We're finally going to the capital. This will be my
chance to avenge Captain Jeralt.
Once we smash the Empire, I'm sure his soul will
finally be able to rest in peace.
Monica killed Captain Jeralt for the Flame Emperor,
and the Flame Emperor was Edelgard.
I know that the future of all Fódlan rests on this
battle. Nothing else is more important.
But for me, this is personal. For Captain Jeralt's sake,
I'm going to give it all I've got and more!
Rhea will be somewhere in the city. I wonder if she
can sense us coming.
If we are able to save her, then I expect you will learn
many secrets that have hitherto been kept from you.
Are you prepared for that?
That is unfortunate. Well, you must become ready.
The battle will soon be upon us. Let us both be at
our best for what is to come.
I was born in Enbarr.
My mother and father met in a church there. Not
too long after, I was brought into the world.
I do not understand how war can happen in such
a precious place. It is most regrettable.
Enbarr's streets are paved with unhappy
I've avoided the damned place ever since I
abandoned my nobility. Swore never to return.
Now here we are. To return in this manner... Well,
I can't say it is something I ever imagined.
In the opera, actors came and went all the time. But
the people behind the scenes would stay forever.
I'll bet I'd know a few of them now, even after
all these years.
I wonder if they've left the capital. I certainly
Here we are, facing the final battle with the Empire.
It's been a long, difficult struggle.
We have to get Lady Rhea back! And we have to
crush the Empire, in the name of Captain Jeralt.
I don't know what comes next. But we can sort out
those details later.
Looks like we're nearing the end of this struggle.
I'm sure Lady Rhea is on tenterhooks waiting for me
to swoop in and rescue her.
I was just kidding! Pay me no mind.
Oof... You don't mince your words. Try being a bit
more mindful of other people's feelings.
Lady Rhea's not waiting for me, I know, no matter
how much I might wish she were. She's waiting
Ten years ago, Dagda and Brigid attacked the
Empire from the west.
Their final target was the capital.
But they were countered at a port town, long before
they reached their destination.
I guess our attempt has been more successful than
theirs, all things considered.
Whenever I think about how we'll be seeing Lady
Rhea real soon, I get happy and really get cleaning!
We'll get there for sure, right? We'll see her again?
I just gotta believe Lady Rhea is waiting for us in the
capital... We just have to find her.
Greetings, Professor! Nothing to report!
Momentum's really picking up for this final battle,
huh? Even I'm starting to feel tense! ME!
Enbarr's history goes back 1,400 years. That even
predates the founding of the Empire.
It's one of the sacred sites of the Seiros faith, so it's
a pretty big deal.
But hey, no need to worry about the monastery while
you're fighting the final battle. I've got it covered!
I'll defend it to my last!
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
We'd best purge the entire underbelly of
Some of my soldier friends departed for Empire
territory a few days ago.
They wore trader clothes and hid their weapons in
their luggage so that even if they encounter patrols,
they won't arouse suspicion.
Another squad dressed as traveling artists. It's like a
game of dress-up, but with lives at stake.
Did you know? A magnificent canal flows through
It's said to have been constructed under the guidance
of Saint Seiros before the Empire was even formed.
Ever since, that canal has been a major lifeline for the
And now this is how the Empire repays it... Truly,
no good deed goes unpunished.
Just recently, the fish in the pond suddenly started
thrashing around like mad.
I didn't know what was going on, and then I saw
something gleaming in the southeastern sky.
It happened right when you were out on campaign.
I wonder what it could have been...
We're forming small units and slowly sneaking into
the Empire's territory.
That allows us to conceal ourselves along the path of
the main army's progress, so that by the time we
reach the capital, we can all join forces again.
However, if any of the units are discovered before we
can rendezvous, the whole plan is a bust. I'm sure it
will work out, though.
The Empire seems to think we've abandoned our
plans to invade, so they're likely not keeping as close
The Empire's army should be divided now, with
significant troops still in the west.
If they don't assert their authority over the old
Kingdom's lords, they'll never know when an
uprising might start.
Ironically, as soon as we capture the Imperial
capital, the old Kingdom's lords are likely to
rise up immediately.
Ever since the Empire declared war on the church,
we have lost all contact with the priests and monks
who were in the Imperial capital.
I expect there's nothing we can do but pray for their
safety, but realistically, it's probably too late...
Enbarr is where the divine Seiros, sent by
the goddess, first appeared before mankind.
Saint Seiros then worked countless miracles there,
and offered guidance to the people.
That's why Enbarr is considered a holy place for the
Church of Seiros.
The information about Lady Rhea being held in the
Imperial capital came from an Imperial soldier
We can't discount the possibility that the enemy's
feeding us fake information on purpose...
Still, we can only move forward. It's all on you,
I'm from the Empire, myself, and I still have some
relatives in Enbarr.
I hope they get out in time, but I've no way of
contacting them... I guess all I can do is pray
they're not harmed.
Feels like a death wish, attacking the Imperial capital
You don't really think we're going to beat the
Empire with these paltry forces, do you?
Heh heh! Is that so? Oh, how I love your resolve.
You've chosen your path...now own it. If you can't
stand up to me, you certainly can't stand up to
According to a merchant who just came from the
Alliance, my little bro made it home in one piece.
But House Albrecht lost a lot of troops. So did the
nearby lords. Things are real bad over there.
If we don't stop the Empire soon, there won't be
anyone left to help fight them off.
Is it true what they say? That the archbishop is a
captive of the Empire?
I've never heard of anything so brash in all the
Empire's long history.
It is vexing that Lady Edelgard's true motives elude
me. If only I still had noble connections to draw on...
The loss of my house has proven to be a thorn in my
side again and again.
The Kingdom and the Alliance both came out of the
last fight looking battered and broken.
If the Empire is wiped out too, then who's left to run
I guess the next leader of Fódlan could be...you.
I'd be pretty psyched about that.
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. Listen up. I've got something to report.
Remember that battle six years ago? Oh... Um,
I'm guessing you do. Anyway, remember that knight
who watched over Abyss with me for a while?
I've been on the hunt for his whereabouts and...
I finally found out what happened to him.
My friend...is no longer with us. Dead. Figured as
much, but now I know for sure. I did get to meet his
big sister, at least.
I'll never have the chance to thank him for our time
together...but maybe I can find a way to help out his
sister instead. Bet he would have liked that.
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?
Please, you can't tell anyone you saw me here.
I'm in hiding from the army.
I couldn't stand the war. The violence. I had to get
away... But now that I've deserted, I can't go home.
Justice, ambition—what does any of that matter if
you're dead? I just want to live. Is that so wrong?
Those lights that came down on Merceus...I might
have seen them before, here at Garreg Mach.
They looked like they'd rain down right on top of us,
but at the last moment, they veered off...
I think they crashed into Ailell. It must have been
the goddess's blessing that protected us.
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.
