Ferdinand

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

Ferdinand

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

Ferdinand

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

Ferdinand

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

Ferdinand

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

Ferdinand

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

Ferdinand

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

Linhardt

Linhardt

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

Linhardt

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

Linhardt

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

Linhardt

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

Linhardt

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

Linhardt

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

Linhardt

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

Caspar

Caspar

All...

Caspar

RIGHT!

Caspar

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

Caspar

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

Caspar

But I'm glad we made it through together!

Caspar

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

Caspar

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

Bernadetta

Bernadetta

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

Bernadetta

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

Bernadetta

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

Bernadetta

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

Bernadetta

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

Bernadetta

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

Dorothea

Dorothea

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

Dorothea

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

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

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

Dorothea

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

Dorothea

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

Petra

Petra

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

Petra

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

Petra

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

Petra

Please, choose well.

Petra

Yes. Now I must be packing.

Petra

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

Petra

I will be packing while you are thinking.

Felix

Felix

It's over.

Felix

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

Felix

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

Felix

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

Felix

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

Felix

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

Ashe

Ashe

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

Ashe

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

Ashe

I'm flattered to hear you say so.

Ashe

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

Ashe

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

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

Sylvain

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

Sylvain

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

Sylvain

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

Sylvain

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

Sylvain

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

Sylvain

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

Mercedes

link
Mercedes

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

Mercedes

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

Mercedes

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

Mercedes

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

Mercedes

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

Annette

link
Annette

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

Annette

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

Annette

I suppose you're right.

Annette

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

Annette

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

Ingrid

link
Ingrid

Can it really be? Are we truly at peace?

Ingrid

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

Ingrid

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

Ingrid

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

Ingrid

Thinking of the future has never been my forte.

Ingrid

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

Lorenz

link
Lorenz

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

Lorenz

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

Lorenz

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

Lorenz

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

Lorenz

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

Lorenz

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

Raphael

Raphael

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

Raphael

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

Raphael

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

Raphael

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

Raphael

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

Ignatz

Ignatz

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

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

Ignatz

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

Ignatz

Thank you, oh thank you!

Ignatz

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

Ignatz

I think everyone should know what happened here.

Ignatz

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

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

Lysithea

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

Lysithea

Uh, sure thing.

Lysithea

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

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

Marianne

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

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

Hilda

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

Hilda

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

Hilda

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

Hilda

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

Leonie

Leonie

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

Leonie

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

Leonie

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

Leonie

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

Leonie

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

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

Alois

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

Leonie

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

Alois

Whaaaaaah!

Leonie

Aaah! How long have you been standing there?!

Alois

Er, ahem.

Alois

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

Leonie

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

Well? Is your mind made up?

Note that C2the current month will end and the story will progress. All activities and special events for the month will be skipped if you proceedR. Continue?

Seteth

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

Seteth

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

Flayn

link
Flayn

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

Flayn

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

Flayn

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

Flayn

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

Hanneman

Hanneman

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

Hanneman

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

Hanneman

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

Hanneman

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

Hanneman

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

Hanneman

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

Manuela

Manuela

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

Manuela

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

Manuela

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

Manuela

Relax? I'm relaxed.

Manuela

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

Manuela

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

Manuela

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

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

Alois

Alois

Jeralt... We've done it. We've finally brought this creaky old ship ashore.

Alois

The fight was long and bitter, but finally...I can lay down my burden.

Alois

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

Alois

Er, ahem.

Alois

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 of peace.

Catherine

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

Catherine

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

Catherine

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

Shamir

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

Shamir

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

Shamir

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

Shamir

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

Shamir

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?

Knight of Seiros

link
Knight of Seiros

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

Knight of Seiros

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

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

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

Monk

Monk

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

Monk

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

Churchgoer

Churchgoer

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.

Soldier

Soldier

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

Soldier

Soldier

I don't think anybody would bat an eye if it was Seteth who ascended the throne.

Soldier

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

Priest

Priest

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

Priest

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

Priest

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

Churchgoer

Churchgoer

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

If you're still wavering, we hope you will make your mind up soon.

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

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

Yuri

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

Yuri

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.

Balthus

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.

Balthus

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...

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.
