Well done, Professor. We have brought the war to a magnificent conclusion.

Ferdinand
volume_up

The Empire, Alliance, and Kingdom are no more. Nor are there any factions that could blindside us and cause conflict.

Ferdinand
volume_up

Now it falls to us to rule Fódlan, and bring about an era of peace and prosperity.

Ferdinand
volume_up

You would be a fine choice for the first ruler of this new era. I sincerely believe that.

Ferdinand
volume_up

So, your heart is already set on it! Excellent! In that case, congratulations are in order.

Ferdinand
volume_up

Well, if you are unsure, what does that say about everybody else's chances?

Ferdinand
volume_up

I will follow you, Professor. I aim to be a great and respectable noble.

Linhardt

Linhardt
volume_up

Congratulations on a job well done, Professor. I do hope Lady Rhea is well?

Linhardt
volume_up

Is it true what I heard? You'll be taking over her post?

Linhardt
volume_up

Would that make you archbishop? Or higher still? Am I in the company of the future ruler of Fódlan?

Linhardt
volume_up

I agree! Imagine all that responsibility. Until now, you've always fought with all of us by your side.

Linhardt
volume_up

Being ruler would be a much lonelier job, though I am certain you would excel.

Linhardt
volume_up

So you've already decided... Such proactive thinking is the hallmark of a good ruler.

Linhardt
volume_up

Me? I have no interest in a leadership role. I'm happy to spend the rest of my days studying...and napping.

Caspar

Caspar
volume_up

All...

Caspar
volume_up

RIGHT!

Caspar
volume_up

We did it, Professor! We really gave it to 'em out there!

Caspar
volume_up

With all the fighting and hardships, I don't know how we did it...

Caspar
volume_up

But I'm glad we made it through together!

Caspar
volume_up

Sorry if I made your life more difficult! None of that matters anymore though, right?

Caspar
volume_up

Now all we gotta do is make you the new ruler! That's gonna be a fun coronation!

Bernadetta

Bernadetta
volume_up

Phew... It's all over, Professor. Though I am worried about Lady Rhea...

Bernadetta
volume_up

But still, Fódlan is united, and those terrible people lurking in the dark have finally been destroyed.

Bernadetta
volume_up

Looks like it's the dawn of a wonderful new era...of blissful seclusion for Bernie!

Bernadetta
volume_up

Wh-what? Why not?! Hey, that better not be your first official decree!

Bernadetta
volume_up

You're going to ask for my help again, aren't you? Oh, why?

Bernadetta
volume_up

Woo-hoo! You finally did it, Bernie! Now take your reward of eternal peace and quiet!

Dorothea

Dorothea
volume_up

Finally! An end to the fighting. Have you ever felt happier?

Dorothea
volume_up

I've worried that I might not live to see this day, but here we are, and everything is going to be OK, isn't it?

Dorothea
volume_up

Hah, my heart feels like it's ready to burst. I'm so full of happiness, yet I feel a sense of loss too...

Dorothea
volume_up

Yes, we certainly did. But we managed to keep a great many things safe, as well.

Dorothea
volume_up

I agree. I suppose if I think of those who are gone as the people who ensured our freedom...it hurts less.

Dorothea
volume_up

Please do what you can to keep the peace, so we never have to face such awful times again.

Petra

Petra
volume_up

War has been ended. I will now be returning to Brigid.

Petra
volume_up

I hope in the new Fódlan, Brigid can be accepted with friendship.

Petra
volume_up

When my professor becomes the leader, I think that will have a possibility.

Petra
volume_up

Please, choose well.

Petra
volume_up

Yes. Now I must be packing.

Petra
volume_up

Is that the truth? I will be waiting for your decision.

Petra
volume_up

I will be packing while you are thinking.

Felix

Felix
volume_up

It's over.

Felix
volume_up

What will you do? I heard you intend to lead.

Felix
volume_up

You shouldn't need that long to decide. Make up your mind.

Felix
volume_up

Well, if you do choose to lead, I might like to work for you.

Felix
volume_up

But first I'll go back to the old Faerghus territory.

Felix
volume_up

Where my father and my old friends once lived. I need to pay respects, put flowers on their graves.

Ashe

Ashe
volume_up

Well, it took a long while for us to get here, but we did it. The war is finally over.

Ashe
volume_up

We've been through a lot together, haven't we? Let me just say, it's truly been an honor.

Ashe
volume_up

I'm flattered to hear you say so.

Ashe
volume_up

Hey, come on, I mean it! There's nothing to be embarrassed about!

Ashe
volume_up

For whatever it's worth, I think you'd make a great monarch, and I'd support you every step of the way.

Sylvain

Sylvain
volume_up

Ah, yow! She didn't have to slap me that hard.

Sylvain
volume_up

Oh, Professor, it's you. What's up? Need something?

Sylvain
volume_up

I dunno if I'd call us lovers, exactly. Not yet anyway. It was just a dinner invite.

Sylvain
volume_up

Heh, you worried I might cause trouble again? Nah, I just invited a girl out to dinner.

Sylvain
volume_up

All fighting and no loving makes Sylvain a rusty boy. Well, I can get back in practice now.

Sylvain
volume_up

Peacetime is the best for love—nobody dying, nobody getting hurt...except me, apparently.

Sylvain
volume_up

If you're gonna be the ruler, you need to keep the peace going so I can catch up on my love life.

Mercedes

Mercedes
volume_up

I heard a rumor that you're going to take over for Lady Rhea!

Mercedes
volume_up

Oh, so the rumor was really true? I hope you accept. I don't think there's anyone else who could do it.

Mercedes
volume_up

So it's already been decided? That's very admirable of you, Professor.

Mercedes
volume_up

You have nothing to worry about. We're here to help you if you need anything at all!

Mercedes
volume_up

We'll support you no matter what path you choose to follow!

Annette

link
Annette
volume_up

Is Lady Rhea OK? She was quite weakened to start, and then she took all those heavy injuries...

Annette
volume_up

I don't want to imagine it, but what will happen if Lady Rhea passes away like this?

Annette
volume_up

I suppose you're right.

Annette
volume_up

Yes. I'm praying every day that she'll get well as soon as possible.

Annette
volume_up

Anyhow... You're going to be the ruler, Professor? It's so strange to think of, for some reason!

Ingrid

link
Ingrid
volume_up

Can it really be? Are we truly at peace?

Ingrid
volume_up

To think that my days will not be spent debating war tactics and preparing for battles. It doesn't quite feel real.

Ingrid
volume_up

Now that we are finally at peace, I'm not quite sure what to do with myself.

Ingrid
volume_up

That sounds...challenging for how easy it must actually be.

Ingrid
volume_up

Thinking of the future has never been my forte.

Ingrid
volume_up

As long as I have a routine in place for myself, I can find contentment.

Lorenz

Lorenz
volume_up

The day is ours, Professor. And this victory will ensure our names are immortalized in history.

Lorenz
volume_up

Or perhaps this is but the opening chapter in the tale they will write of our glory.

Lorenz
volume_up

After all, if you are to rule this reunited land, surely there is bound to be a place for me at your side?

Lorenz
volume_up

I read your mind, didn't I? Fear not! I will not fail to rise to the occasion!

Lorenz
volume_up

Is that so? It seems to me that everyone has already assumed you would take the position.

Lorenz
volume_up

Regardless, your decision will have an impact on my future, so be sure to make it a good one!

Raphael

Raphael
volume_up

Hey, Professor! I was just thinking I might go train.

Raphael
volume_up

I know the war's over, but that doesn't mean I can stop working my muscles!

Raphael
volume_up

I'm glad you see it my way! I always knew you were a smart one!

Raphael
volume_up

Really? I wouldn't even know where to start, but...

Raphael
volume_up

There's no harm in keeping up on my training!

Ignatz

Ignatz
volume_up

After all that happened to Lady Rhea, all of the stuff with Solon and the others, and everything that's happened with you, Professor...

Ignatz
volume_up

There's still a lot I don't understand.

Ignatz
volume_up

Please teach me, Professor—everything you know, everything you've learned.

Ignatz
volume_up

Thank you, oh thank you!

Ignatz
volume_up

If it's at all possible, I hope you'll speak about it not just to me, but to everyone else as well.

Ignatz
volume_up

I think everyone should know what happened here.

Ignatz
volume_up

If we're going to build a new, united Fódlan...that's absolutely crucial.

Lysithea

Lysithea

Those who slither in the dark will never harm anyone again. They're finally done for.

Lysithea
volume_up

Thank you, Professor. Finally, I feel some vindication for what I've gone through.

Lysithea
volume_up

Ah, Professor. Ever the modest one. I do like that aspect of you.

Lysithea
volume_up

Uh, sure thing.

Lysithea
volume_up

As long as I'm of use here, I'm happy to stick around, Professor.

Marianne

Marianne

And with that, we can finally enjoy a time of peace. I'm honored to have fought by your side.

Marianne
volume_up

Even if you haven't made plans yet, I know you'll do your best, whatever your future may hold.

Marianne
volume_up

If true, that's all thanks to you and our allies.

Marianne

I never would have dreamed my heart could have grown this way.

Marianne

Please let me know if there's anything more I can do.

Hilda

Hilda
volume_up

Hey, Professor! The war is finally, really, definitely over now, right?

Hilda
volume_up

We're not gonna find out that there was some evil shadowy figure hiding behind the subterranean guys, are we?

Hilda
volume_up

Well, whatever. No matter what comes, I know that we can triumph in the end!

Hilda
volume_up

Ah, that's good! Though to be honest, there's not much that would surprise me at this point...

Hilda
volume_up

I feel invincible! A nice perk of being your student, don't you think?

Leonie

Leonie
volume_up

Well, we both made it. And we avenged Jeralt too. Can't say it gets any better than that.

Leonie
volume_up

You've got a lot of work ahead of you, I hear. People want you to govern, don't they?

Leonie
volume_up

Yeah. Sadly, this isn't the kind of burden I can take off your hands.

Leonie
volume_up

Well, at the end of the day, it's your decision. Just take your time. Think it through.

Leonie
volume_up

You've got to consider it carefully, so you don't have any regrets. Whatever you choose, though, just know that I'm here for you.

At last, the day is upon us. The captain would be pleased. Don't you think, Leonie?

Leonie
volume_up

Definitely. And he'd be proud of the professor too.

Alois
volume_up

It seems like our efforts have been rewarded. It was certainly a long, difficult struggle to get here.

Leonie
volume_up

It was. Oh, Jeralt... We worked so hard for this.

Alois
volume_up

Whaaaaaah!

Leonie
volume_up

Aaah! How long have you been standing there?!

Alois
volume_up

Er, ahem.

Alois
volume_up

Whether or not you choose to succeed Lady Rhea, we will forever be by your side.

Leonie
volume_up

Yeah. We'll be here no matter what you decide. But make sure you think it through. You don't want to have any regrets.

Seteth

Seteth
volume_up

Well? Is your mind made up?

Note that the current month will end and the story will progress. All activities and special events for the month will be skipped if you proceed. Continue?

Seteth
volume_up

I understand. Just know that we are applying all our power right now toward healing Rhea.

Seteth
volume_up

You should take this opportunity to speak with everyone. I am certain it will do you good.

Flayn

link
Flayn
volume_up

I have faith in Lady Rhea's convalescence, but even so, what she needs now is rest.

Flayn
volume_up

And while she is recovering, somebody must watch over Fódlan.

Flayn
volume_up

There is no one more fit to wear such a mantle than you, Professor.

Flayn
volume_up

That is what I believe. I do not doubt the others feel the same.

Hanneman

link
Hanneman
volume_up

Shambhala... An underground city with an entirely different lineage than the goddess?

Hanneman
volume_up

Strange phenomena, driven by a source totally alien to the Crests that we understand. Most unsettling!

Hanneman
volume_up

Could it be magic? Some manner of technology? I would like to know the truth of it all. Very much so.

Hanneman
volume_up

I want to know their history, their knowledge. Why do you suppose they chose this place to occupy?

Hanneman
volume_up

No, I suppose you wouldn't... It seems we will have to excavate Shambhala to know more.

Hanneman
volume_up

Although, I heard you will be the Ruler here? Should I ask your permission to proceed with the dig?

Manuela

link
Manuela
volume_up

Life can be tough, you know? But if you've got your friends to help you through, it can be a lot easier.

Manuela
volume_up

Maybe you butt heads sometimes...but that's OK. That's how you build bonds, right?

Manuela
volume_up

And I've got friends, Professor. Plenty of those. It's true love that seems to have passed me by.

Manuela
volume_up

Relax? I'm relaxed.

Manuela
volume_up

But where is my true love to be found? Where is my ray of hope?

Manuela
volume_up

Yeah... I'm starting to figure that's the most realistic option.

Manuela
volume_up

At this point, you're the only man who pays attention to me. I guess I'll have to take what I can get.

Manuela
volume_up

At this point, I'm just hoping you stay single too. Then at least we can share each other's misery!

Alois

Alois

Whaaaaah! It's you! Don't creep up like a ghost. Next time, announce yourself.

Alois
volume_up

Er, ahem.

Whether or not you choose to succeed Lady Rhea, I will forever be by your side.

You should live your life however you want. That's what the captain would say, I think.

Catherine

Catherine
volume_up

Lady Rhea stopped the forces that threatened to destroy Fódlan. She's trying to realize her dream of peace.

Catherine
volume_up

Isn't that enough? Can't you let her rest?

Catherine
volume_up

If you're the only person who's fit to replace her, you should just do it.

Catherine
volume_up

I'm sure Lady Rhea wishes for that too, right? I can't think of anyone who's more well suited to the job.

Shamir

link
Shamir
volume_up

The war is finally over... I have to admit, even I got a little emotional.

Shamir
volume_up

Rhea's condition doesn't look good. There's nothing to do now but wait.

Shamir
volume_up

More importantly, are you serious about becoming Fódlan's new ruler?

Shamir
volume_up

It's pretty sudden. Either way, do what you think is best.

Shamir
volume_up

You made up your mind pretty quickly. Either way, do what you think is best.

Cyril

Cyril

Professor, do you figure Lady Rhea will be OK? She will, won't she?

I don't care one bit who'll succeed Lady Rhea, 'cause nobody's gonna need to.

She's gonna be happy and healthy again. You'll see.

Greetings, Professor! Nothing to report!

Just when we thought peace had finally arrived... What's to become of Fódlan?

Knight of Seiros

Knight of Seiros
volume_up

All the lords of the old Kingdom seem to be pouring their efforts into rebuilding their own domains...

Knight of Seiros
volume_up

But without a royal family in place, they can't seem to reach any sort of agreement, and so the work can't progress.

Knight of Seiros
volume_up

A lot of territory in the old Empire doesn't even have any lords right now, so there are concerns about peace and prosperity breaking down in large areas...

Knight of Seiros
volume_up

It is the duty of the victor to restore order. We must rebuild and reunite as soon as we can!

Monk

link
Monk
volume_up

Once Lady Rhea is fully recovered, she will resume her role as the archbishop of the church.

Monk
volume_up

In which case, I do believe you would be the obvious choice for the ruler of the new royal bloodline...

Churchgoer

link
Churchgoer
volume_up

Just when I thought bringing the Empire down would end the war, you had to fight where? Against whom?

Churchgoer

The noble Knights of Seiros won't tell us commoners any meaningful details.

Churchgoer

But at least that's the end of the fighting, right? Thanks for riding it out all this time!

Soldier

Soldier

This last series of battles was swift, but vicious.

But now, we've finally avenged our fallen friends.

Soldier

Soldier

But really, I think we can all agree that the role of tough-but-fair second-in-command suits him best.

Priest

Priest
volume_up

The most important thing we can do now is to pour all of our efforts into rebuilding the church and the monastery.

Priest
volume_up

We've relied on Lady Rhea and Seteth up till now, but after all this, we'll need to do our part too.

Priest
volume_up

The church may even need to go through some changes to catch up with the times.

Churchgoer

link
Churchgoer
volume_up

Lady Rhea was injured?! How could such a thing happen?

Churchgoer

Wasn't she supposed to be resting? I can't believe she'd put herself in danger by going into battle in that state...

Churchgoer

Oh, Goddess... Please save Lady Rhea...

And here you are, the new chosen leader of the land. Though, judging by your expression, you don't seem too enthused.

Yuri
volume_up

It's hard to say how a region under your rule may turn out. But it'll be interesting to watch it unfold.

Yuri
volume_up

Heh heh! Very funny. You know elevating the lord of the underground to such rulership wouldn't exactly be well received.

If you end up on the throne, do me a favor and take care of the people of Abyss. I'd like to spread my wings and fly away someday.

That's it? Come on, lighten up and join in! Plenty of good times to go around.

Balthus

Worried about me, are ya? Heh, should've known this would happen. I'm lovable to a fault.

If you're not gonna have a drink with me, the least you can do is help me find a lucky lady to keep me company in your stead...

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

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

Abysskeeper

On a personal note...I'm, uh, chewing on an idea. Marriage. I'm thinking of getting hitched! If I do... I may have to move up top.

So you've managed to make it all the way to the end. For once, it seems the stars were wrong.

Magic Wielder

My reading of the stars predicted that, during the war, you would fall to your death.

But that was five years ago. Perhaps the prediction was true for you then somehow.
