Well done, Professor. We have brought the war to a
The Empire, Alliance, and Kingdom are no more.
Nor are there any factions that could blindside us
and cause conflict.
Now it falls to us to rule Fódlan, and bring about an
era of peace and prosperity.
You would be a fine choice for the first ruler of this
new era. I sincerely believe that.
So, your heart is already set on it! Excellent!
In that case, congratulations are in order.
Well, if you are unsure, what does that say about
everybody else's chances?
I will follow you, Professor. I aim to be a great and
Congratulations on a job well done, Professor.
I do hope Lady Rhea is well?
Is it true what I heard? You'll be taking over
Would that make you archbishop? Or higher still?
Am I in the company of the future ruler of Fódlan?
I agree! Imagine all that responsibility. Until now,
you've always fought with all of us by your side.
Being ruler would be a much lonelier job, though I
am certain you would excel.
So you've already decided... Such proactive thinking
is the hallmark of a good ruler.
Me? I have no interest in a leadership role. I'm happy
to spend the rest of my days studying...and napping.
We did it, Professor! We really gave it to 'em
With all the fighting and hardships, I don't know
how we did it...
But I'm glad we made it through together!
Sorry if I made your life more difficult! None of that
matters anymore though, right?
Now all we gotta do is make you the new ruler!
That's gonna be a fun coronation!
Phew... It's all over, Professor. Though I am worried
about Lady Rhea...
But still, Fódlan is united, and those terrible people
lurking in the dark have finally been destroyed.
Looks like it's the dawn of a wonderful new era...of
blissful seclusion for Bernie!
Wh-what? Why not?! Hey, that better not be your
first official decree!
You're going to ask for my help again, aren't you?
Woo-hoo! You finally did it, Bernie! Now take your
reward of eternal peace and quiet!
Finally! An end to the fighting. Have you ever
I've worried that I might not live to see this day,
but here we are, and everything is going to be OK,
Hah, my heart feels like it's ready to burst. I'm so
full of happiness, yet I feel a sense of loss too...
Yes, we certainly did. But we managed to keep a
great many things safe, as well.
I agree. I suppose if I think of those who are gone as
the people who ensured our freedom...it hurts less.
Please do what you can to keep the peace, so we
never have to face such awful times again.
War has been ended. I will now be returning
I hope in the new Fódlan, Brigid can be accepted
When my professor becomes the leader, I think that
will have a possibility.
Please, choose well.
Yes. Now I must be packing.
Is that the truth? I will be waiting for your decision.
I will be packing while you are thinking.
What will you do? I heard you intend to lead.
You shouldn't need that long to decide. Make up
Well, if you do choose to lead, I might like to work
But first I'll go back to the old Faerghus territory.
Where my father and my old friends once lived.
I need to pay respects, put flowers on their graves.
Well, it took a long while for us to get here, but we
did it. The war is finally over.
We've been through a lot together, haven't we?
Let me just say, it's truly been an honor.
I'm flattered to hear you say so.
Hey, come on, I mean it! There's nothing to be
For whatever it's worth, I think you'd make a great
monarch, and I'd support you every step of the way.
Ah, yow! She didn't have to slap me that hard.
Oh, Professor, it's you. What's up? Need something?
I dunno if I'd call us lovers, exactly. Not yet anyway.
It was just a dinner invite.
Heh, you worried I might cause trouble again?
Nah, I just invited a girl out to dinner.
All fighting and no loving makes Sylvain a rusty boy.
Well, I can get back in practice now.
Peacetime is the best for love—nobody dying,
nobody getting hurt...except me, apparently.
If you're gonna be the ruler, you need to keep the
peace going so I can catch up on my love life.
I heard a rumor that you're going to take over for
Oh, so the rumor was really true? I hope you accept.
I don't think there's anyone else who could do it.
So it's already been decided? That's very admirable
of you, Professor.
You have nothing to worry about. We're here to help
you if you need anything at all!
We'll support you no matter what path you choose
Is Lady Rhea OK? She was quite weakened to start,
and then she took all those heavy injuries...
I don't want to imagine it, but what will happen
if Lady Rhea passes away like this?
I suppose you're right.
Yes. I'm praying every day that she'll get well as
soon as possible.
Anyhow... You're going to be the ruler, Professor?
It's so strange to think of, for some reason!
Can it really be? Are we truly at peace?
To think that my days will not be spent debating
war tactics and preparing for battles. It doesn't
quite feel real.
Now that we are finally at peace, I'm not quite sure
what to do with myself.
That sounds...challenging for how easy it must
Thinking of the future has never been my forte.
As long as I have a routine in place for myself, I can
The day is ours, Professor. And this victory will
ensure our names are immortalized in history.
Or perhaps this is but the opening chapter in the tale
they will write of our glory.
After all, if you are to rule this reunited land, surely
there is bound to be a place for me at your side?
I read your mind, didn't I? Fear not! I will not fail to
rise to the occasion!
Is that so? It seems to me that everyone has already
assumed you would take the position.
Regardless, your decision will have an impact on my
future, so be sure to make it a good one!
Hey, Professor! I was just thinking I might go train.
I know the war's over, but that doesn't mean I can
stop working my muscles!
I'm glad you see it my way! I always knew you were
a smart one!
Really? I wouldn't even know where to start, but...
There's no harm in keeping up on my training!
After all that happened to Lady Rhea, all of the stuff
with Solon and the others, and everything that's
happened with you, Professor...
There's still a lot I don't understand.
Please teach me, Professor—everything you know,
everything you've learned.
Thank you, oh thank you!
If it's at all possible, I hope you'll speak about it not
just to me, but to everyone else as well.
I think everyone should know what happened here.
If we're going to build a new, united Fódlan...that's
Those who slither in the dark will never harm
anyone again. They're finally done for.
Thank you, Professor. Finally, I feel some vindication
for what I've gone through.
Ah, Professor. Ever the modest one. I do like that
aspect of you.
Uh, sure thing.
As long as I'm of use here, I'm happy to stick
And with that, we can finally enjoy a time of peace.
I'm honored to have fought by your side.
Even if you haven't made plans yet, I know you'll do
your best, whatever your future may hold.
If true, that's all thanks to you and our allies.
I never would have dreamed my heart could have
grown this way.
Please let me know if there's anything more I can do.
Hey, Professor! The war is finally, really, definitely
over now, right?
We're not gonna find out that there was some evil
shadowy figure hiding behind the subterranean guys,
Well, whatever. No matter what comes, I know that
we can triumph in the end!
Ah, that's good! Though to be honest, there's not
much that would surprise me at this point...
I feel invincible! A nice perk of being your student,
don't you think?
Well, we both made it. And we avenged Jeralt too.
Can't say it gets any better than that.
You've got a lot of work ahead of you, I hear. People
want you to govern, don't they?
Yeah. Sadly, this isn't the kind of burden I can take
off your hands.
Well, at the end of the day, it's your decision. Just
take your time. Think it through.
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?
Definitely. And he'd be proud of the professor too.
It seems like our efforts have been rewarded. It was
certainly a long, difficult struggle to get here.
It was. Oh, Jeralt... We worked so hard for this.
Aaah! How long have you been standing there?!
Whether or not you choose to succeed Lady Rhea,
we will forever be by your side.
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.
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?
I understand. Just know that we are applying all our
power right now toward healing Rhea.
You should take this opportunity to speak with
everyone. I am certain it will do you good.
I have faith in Lady Rhea's convalescence, but
even so, what she needs now is rest.
And while she is recovering, somebody must watch
There is no one more fit to wear such a mantle than
That is what I believe. I do not doubt the others
feel the same.
Shambhala... An underground city with an entirely
different lineage than the goddess?
Strange phenomena, driven by a source totally alien
to the Crests that we understand. Most unsettling!
Could it be magic? Some manner of technology? I
would like to know the truth of it all. Very much so.
I want to know their history, their knowledge. Why
do you suppose they chose this place to occupy?
No, I suppose you wouldn't... It seems we will have
to excavate Shambhala to know more.
Although, I heard you will be the Ruler here? Should
I ask your permission to proceed with the dig?
Life can be tough, you know? But if you've got your
friends to help you through, it can be a lot easier.
Maybe you butt heads sometimes...but that's OK.
That's how you build bonds, right?
And I've got friends, Professor. Plenty of those. It's
true love that seems to have passed me by.
Relax? I'm relaxed.
But where is my true love to be found? Where is my
ray of hope?
Yeah... I'm starting to figure that's the most
At this point, you're the only man who pays attention
to me. I guess I'll have to take what I can get.
At this point, I'm just hoping you stay single too.
Then at least we can share each other's misery!
Jeralt... We've done it. We've finally brought this
creaky old ship ashore.
The fight was long and bitter, but finally...I can lay
down my burden.
Whaaaaah! It's you! Don't creep up like a ghost.
Next time, announce yourself.
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.
Lady Rhea stopped the forces that threatened to
destroy Fódlan. She's trying to realize her dream
Isn't that enough? Can't you let her rest?
If you're the only person who's fit to replace her,
you should just do it.
I'm sure Lady Rhea wishes for that too, right? I can't
think of anyone who's more well suited to the job.
The war is finally over... I have to admit, even I got a
Rhea's condition doesn't look good. There's nothing
to do now but wait.
More importantly, are you serious about becoming
Fódlan's new ruler?
It's pretty sudden. Either way, do what you think
You made up your mind pretty quickly. Either way,
do what you think is best.
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!
Say, how is the archbishop faring? The soldiers and
citizens are all concerned!
Just when we thought peace had finally arrived...
What's to become of Fódlan?
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
All the lords of the old Kingdom seem to be pouring
their efforts into rebuilding their own domains...
But without a royal family in place, they can't seem
to reach any sort of agreement, and so the work
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...
It is the duty of the victor to restore order. We must
rebuild and reunite as soon as we can!
Once Lady Rhea is fully recovered, she will resume
her role as the archbishop of the church.
In which case, I do believe you would be the obvious
choice for the ruler of the new royal bloodline...
Just when I thought bringing the Empire down
would end the war, you had to fight where?
The noble Knights of Seiros won't tell us commoners
any meaningful details.
But at least that's the end of the fighting, right?
Thanks for riding it out all this time!
This last series of battles was swift, but vicious.
Myrddin, Gronder, Merceus... Many of our allies
lost their lives in those battles.
But now, we've finally avenged our fallen friends.
I don't think anybody would bat an eye if it was
Seteth who ascended the throne.
But really, I think we can all agree that the role of
tough-but-fair second-in-command suits him best.
The most important thing we can do now is to pour
all of our efforts into rebuilding the church and
We've relied on Lady Rhea and Seteth up till now,
but after all this, we'll need to do our part too.
The church may even need to go through some
changes to catch up with the times.
Lady Rhea was injured?! How could such
a thing happen?
Wasn't she supposed to be resting? I can't believe
she'd put herself in danger by going into battle in
Oh, Goddess... Please save Lady Rhea...
I've gotta write a letter to my family. They're waiting
in my old hometown.
I've gotta tell them I'll be coming home soon!
I mean, what else could possibly happen?
Everyone in the Knights of Seiros is eagerly awaiting
your ascension to the throne, Professor.
With the ability and virtue you've shown, you've
demonstrated all the qualities the leader of a united
If you're still wavering, we hope you will make your
mind up soon.
I've heard that you'll take over as the ruler of this
new land. Is that true?
And here I thought you'd take over for Lady Rhea
We'll be lonely here in the monastery if you leave.
Oh, hey, why don't we make Garreg Mach the
The war's over...for now. We need to think ahead
to our next steps.
And here you are, the new chosen leader of the land.
Though, judging by your expression, you don't seem
It's hard to say how a region under your rule may
turn out. But it'll be interesting to watch it unfold.
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.
War is over, pal. It's time to relax! Grab some drinks
and let loose!
Nothing makes a drink taste better than sharing it
with a buddy who's fought at your side. Throw in
some war stories, and you've got yourself a party.
That's it? Come on, lighten up and join in! Plenty of
good times to go around.
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...
I was planning to ask some lovely lady to join me,
but... Well, let's be honest. Who's more deserving
of me than you?
Ahaha! Thanks to my tireless efforts, the war is
at an end.
But the work of achieving my dream has only begun!
House Nuvelle's name shall ring out once more!
With my genius for spellcraft, you shan't be
I'll leverage my genius for spellcraft to restore
House Nuvelle's prestige, of course.
I'm already deep into several promising avenues
of research. Hm-hm-hm!
I heard you might become the next leader of Fódlan.
Personally, I'm into the idea. If you have the chance,
you'll take it, right?
I'd say go for it. I wanna see how you'd clean up this
messy old continent of ours.
That might be something I can get excited about.
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.
I can tell that things will settle down soon enough.
Gotta get back to slinging wares and making moolah!
And hopefully no more messes to spoil it after this...
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.
War is over! And it's all thanks to you. That's no
small feat, and I bet it took a lot of hard work.
On behalf of the world, thank you!
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.
The idea of leaving my post is terrifying, to be
honest. Not sure what a life up top would even look
like. But for her, I'll figure it out. She's worth it.
So you've managed to make it all the way to the end.
For once, it seems the stars were wrong.
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.
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.
