Ferdinand

Ferdinand

I have lost my dominion. My nobility may seem like nothing more than a title.

Ferdinand

But I will never lose my noble heart.

Ferdinand

I will stop Edelgard, even if it costs me my life.

Ferdinand

I have turned my blade against her now. I cannot go back on that decision.

Ferdinand

Professor... Do you think I chose the wrong path?

Ferdinand

You are right...

Linhardt

link
Linhardt

The promise was made five years ago, but I must say I'm rather impressed by how many of us managed to make it.

Linhardt

Personally, I only showed up because I hoped to see you again, Professor.

Linhardt

I've been with my family in the Empire until recently. I admit to feeling a little guilty betraying Her Majesty...but only a little.

Linhardt

Now that we're all together again, I suppose the fighting will begin soon.

Caspar

link
Caspar

Hey, Professor! You won't believe what happened!

Caspar

I figured I couldn't go back to the Empire after Garreg Mach fell, so I started drifting across the Kingdom and Alliance.

Caspar

Then I just happened to run into our old class, so we came back to the monastery together!

Bernadetta

link
Bernadetta

Ah, at last, I return to my domain! My lonely paradise! My realm of exquisite solitude!

Bernadetta

Huh? Professor? Is that, um. Is that you?

Bernadetta

You, um. You didn't hear that just now, did you?

Bernadetta

Oh! Forget you heard anything!

Bernadetta

Right. You didn't? Well, um. Good.

Dorothea

link
Dorothea

Laaa-la-laaa-la-laaa...

Dorothea

Professor! Oh my! It's so good to see you.

Dorothea

These days, so many old friends seem to be disappearing. But you... You're here!

Dorothea

It's incredible to see you again after five years!

Dorothea

I have a feeling your name will go down in history.

Petra

link
Petra

Edelgard is controlling the Empire. She is putting the pressure on the Kingdom and Alliance.

Petra

Empire and religion are at open war. It will be... difficult for us at first.

Petra

But corrupt nobles are many. That means the common people will rebel and be joining our side.

Petra

With you, Professor, the battle tides will...ah, will turn. I have certainty.

Felix

link
Felix

Hello. I have a request concerning that...creature.

Felix

I can hardly look at the thing in the state it's in. Do something about it.

Felix

Please do.

Felix

Don't just give up like that.

Felix

Don't just give up like that.

Felix

We tracked the boar for five years. I thought he was dead. In the state he's in, he might as well be.

Felix

He's gotten better at killing people, and in exchange, surrendered what little humanity he had.

Ashe

link
Ashe

Is...is Dedue really gone?

link
Ashe

There's so much more I wanted to say to him.

link
Ashe

He was always so tender with the flowers in the greenhouse. I wonder how they're doing...

link
Ashe

Is...is Dedue really gone?

link
Ashe

We were classmates, of course, but I never really had the chance to get to know him.

link
Ashe

He was always so tender with the flowers in the greenhouse. I wonder how they're doing...

Sylvain

link
Sylvain

Hey, Professor. It's been a while. It's really good to see you again.

Sylvain

Hey, Professor. It's been a while. It's really good to see you again. Gorgeous as ever, might I add.

Sylvain

An awful lot has happened in these past five years. There were so many times I wished you were around.

Sylvain

I'm glad you're back. Your skills are worth more than a whole army.

Mercedes

link
Mercedes

I finally managed to meet up with everyone again, but they're all so gloomy.

Mercedes

Hey, Professor. Care to join me for a cup of tea? We could invite the others, and the soldiers.

Mercedes

Doesn't it? There probably isn't time to bake any treats though...

Mercedes

Don't be like that, Professor. When things are tough, that's exactly when we need to keep our spirits up and smile!

Mercedes

Oh! I should invite Dimitri to come along as well.

Mercedes

Though I don't suppose he'll want to join in...

Annette

link
Annette

Now that I think about it, His Highness was right. We probably don't have time to waste on cleaning...

Annette

Maybe I wasn't taking the situation seriously enough. After all, the Imperial army could be showing up at any time!

Annette

I was just so happy to see you again. And everyone else too. Maybe I got carried away.

Annette

Oh, really? That's so nice to hear!

Annette

Well, I suppose Lady Rhea would be pretty shocked if she came back to find the place filthy!

Ingrid

link
Ingrid

These past five years, many Kingdom houses have become vassals of the Empire.

Ingrid

The major houses of Fraldarius, Gautier, Charon, and my own family, Galatea, remain loyal...

Ingrid

But the lords of the minor domains in the west have almost entirely defected.

Ingrid

After all the royal family has done for them, they respond with betrayal. And to think they have the gall to call themselves nobles.

Ingrid

But we still have His Highness, and you, Professor. I'm sure we can take back the Kingdom's lands.

Raphael

link
Raphael

The Alliance is such a mess. How are we supposed to know where's safe and where's not?

Raphael

I should probably just move my little sis and grandpa to Garreg Mach.

Raphael

At least I could keep working on becoming a proper knight without having to worry about them!

Raphael

I gotta find them a house once things calm down a bit!

Ignatz

link
Ignatz

Oh, Professor! Seeing everyone together again, it's like I'm in a dream.

Ignatz

I feel it's time for me to forge my own path and find my own place in this world.

Ignatz

Yes. They're in the Alliance, but they're merchants, so they have the means to escape if need be.

Ignatz

I sent him a letter. I'm still waiting on a reply, but I don't think he'd object to my being here.

Ignatz

It'll be valuable for him, having someone outside the Alliance to keep him abreast of new information.

Lysithea

link
Lysithea

I should probably keep things to myself, but in all honesty...

Lysithea

What matters to me, more than anything, is ensuring a peaceful, quiet future for my parents.

Lysithea

I don't care about the Kingdom. I simply want to remove the threat of the Empire.

Lysithea

Because of this, Dimitri's fixation on Edelgard is convenient to me.

Lysithea

I fight for my own reasons and no others.

Marianne

link
Marianne

Professor... Is there any reason for me to remain here?

Marianne

I want to be useful of course, but I'm not sure anyone needs me.

Marianne

That was my adoptive father's decision. He has decided there is no future in the Alliance...

Marianne

If you really mean that, I will stay and do my best to help.

Hilda

link
Hilda

Garreg Mach is a mess. So is Dimitri, honestly.

Hilda

If not for you arriving, Professor, I'd be heading home about now.

Hilda

Though staying here is still more appealing than living with my big brother.

Leonie

link
Leonie

I'm so glad I found you here, Professor. Now I don't have to worry about what to do with myself.

Leonie

Captain Jeralt told me to look out for you, after all.

Leonie

So now my purpose is clear. I'll do everything I can to protect you!

Seteth

link
Seteth

Five long years, I've searched for you and the archbishop. It is a pleasure to see you again.

Seteth

The Church of Seiros will follow you from now on, but please do not abandon the search for Lady Rhea.

Seteth

Thank you. I know the battles ahead will be dire, but we will support you with all our strength.

Seteth

Wherever she is, Rhea is doubtlessly waiting for you. Please do not let her down.

Flayn

link
Flayn

Professor, I am so glad you are unharmed!

Flayn

No matter the path you walk, I will be with you every step of the way.

Flayn

Anything you ask of me, I shall see it through. You saved my life, and I am in your debt.

Hanneman

link
Hanneman

Thankfully, it appears the records and equipment I need for my research have not been damaged.

Hanneman

I am most curious though. You say you were asleep for five whole years? Incredible.

Hanneman

Perhaps this is another effect of your Crest. I do look forward to investigating you in greater detail.

Hanneman

Wonderful news! I am most excited to begin. We must find the time, of course.

Hanneman

I'll have to be content with observing you wherever you go, then. I cannot waste any opportunity!

Manuela

link
Manuela

My, Professor. You haven't changed a bit!

Manuela

At your age, I'd expect your whole demeanor to have changed greatly over five years...

Manuela

Though I suppose I haven't changed either, right? Thank you for noticing, by the way.

Manuela

Ah, just the two of us, forever young. Oh, let me have my fun.

Gilbert

link
Gilbert

We have given a proper burial to the Imperial soldiers killed in the monastery. The ones who were sent to investigate the thieves.

Gilbert

Already, rumors spread that they were utterly annihilated.

Gilbert

So regardless of whether there are spies observing us, the Imperial army will know of this soon enough.

Gilbert

Your Highness... Dimitri... How could you be so reckless?

Alois

link
Alois

I'd given up on ever seeing you again. Where have you been hiding?

Alois

Anyway, now that we're reunited in the land of the living, I must fulfill my promise!

Alois

The promise I made to the captain, to keep you safe! I can't believe you've forgotten. How cold...

Alois

That's right! I promised the captain I'd protect you in his stead, and now I'll make good on my word!

Catherine

link
Catherine

In Lady Rhea's absence, I will follow you. That's what she would want me to do.

Catherine

Know that wherever you might lead us, I'll continue searching for Lady Rhea.

Catherine

Good, because I will not budge on that point. Welcome back, Professor.

Catherine

I don't care how much trouble it is! I will rescue Lady Rhea, at all costs.

Shamir

link
Shamir

I'm more of a mercenary than a knight these days. I work to get paid.

Shamir

I never was too attached to Fódlan. I was considering leaving soon...

Shamir

But I might change my mind if you're around.

Cyril

link
Cyril

I don't know anything about rebuilding, but I can sure do my best to clean up the mess.

Cyril

I'm gonna keep Lady Rhea's room spotless, so she can use it right away whenever she gets back.

Gatekeeper

link
Gatekeeper

Greetings, Professor! Nothing to report!

Gatekeeper

You know, it's such a thrill to be able to greet you like this again!

Gatekeeper

I almost died as well in the battle five years ago, but I won't allow any enemies to get into this place again. I promise you that!

Gatekeeper

Even if the Death Knight shows up, I'll be sure to... Well, for now I'll keep training so I can eventually feel confident that I can stop him!

Knight of Seiros

link
Knight of Seiros

It seems that in the last five years, the monks here have left this place for the town below.

Knight of Seiros

However, once they learn of our return, perhaps they'll come back.

Knight of Seiros

I hope the monastery can return to normal some day...

Knight of Seiros

link
Knight of Seiros

During his search for Her Grace, the archbishop, Seteth has visited churches all across the land.

Knight of Seiros

It served to demonstrate to the devout across Fódlan that the Church of Seiros is still going strong.

Knight of Seiros

As a result, the faithful are not currently in a state of chaos.

Soldier

link
Soldier

In the Alliance, the lords have been at odds, so peace and prosperity have declined there as well.

Soldier

In particular, bandits have been appearing in large numbers near the Great Bridge of Myrddin.

Soldier

Rumor has it that the domain's lord, someone by the name of Acheron, is a completely ineffectual leader...

Knight of Seiros

link
Knight of Seiros

During the millennium festival, the leaders of all territories were supposed to gather together and pledge perpetual peace.

Knight of Seiros

But now that hope has been dashed, thanks to the emperor's actions.

Knight of Seiros

The Alliance is also divided on the subject of the Empire, so internal conflicts are a regular occurrence.

Yuri

link Azure Moon
Yuri

You've been snoozing awhile, so allow me to fill you in. There's a madman roaming Faerghus.

Yuri

Imperial troops entering Kingdom settlements are destroyed seemingly overnight.

Yuri

Townspeople on the front lines are terrified, and yet they simultaneously treat this as though he's some sort of hero blazing through the land.

Yuri

Can't imagine their surprise when they realized it was their own prince.

Balthus

link Azure Moon
Balthus

These past five years have been so chaotic, even the bounty hunters backed off. I kinda miss the chase.

Balthus

I don't have family ties worth fighting for, so these muscles are up for grabs. Use me as you see fit, pal.

Balthus

You're a smart one. Just point me at a problem and I'll smash it up for ya.

Balthus

By that, you mean, "Thank you, Magnanimous King of Grappling!" Yeah? Well, you're welcome.

Balthus

If you're worried my skills have dulled from disuse, think again. I've been fighting thieves to stay sharp.

Constance

link Azure Moon
Constance

Ahaha! You have the look of someone relieved to see me.

Constance

Before you ask, yes. My superior spellcraft is yours. It's your reward for waiting so patiently for me.

Constance

I'm sure that you need me, and that is enough. I recommend that you accept my generous offer.

Constance

Your quick acceptance of the truth is gratifying.

Constance

But my assistance has a price. I expect you to aid me in fulfilling my dream of restoring House Nuvelle.

Hapi

link Azure Moon
Hapi

You're back, finally! I've been waiting for so long.

Hapi

I thought you might have died. But I didn't have anywhere else to go, so...I stayed here.

Hapi

I'll think about forgiving you.

Hapi

You're welcome. It wasn't easy.

Hapi

I've been kinda lonely. As you might have noticed, we've lost a few people down here.

Anna

link
Anna

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

Anna

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

Anna

Some folks have made their home there. Obviously they all have their reasons and tales to tell.

Anna

But only the most enterprising merchant would venture near it. My advice? Avoid going there yourself.

Abysskeeper

link Azure Moon
Abysskeeper

Hey, you. Listen up. I've got something to report.

Abysskeeper

It's you. You're still alive! It's been five whole years, hasn't it? Time flies when you're standing guard.

Abysskeeper

That's right. I've been here the whole time. Day in and day out. Not like I have anywhere else to be.

Abysskeeper

Seems to me things are pretty tough up top, anyhow. These days, it's probably cozier down here than it is up there. How's that for a change of pace?

Rogue

link Azure Moon
Rogue

A lot of folks cleared out once the fighting started.

Rogue

People are saying it was the church that used to keep order around here.

link Azure Moon
Rogue

But it's Yuri who's saving us from complete chaos.

Rogue

A lot of folks cleared out once the fighting started.

Rogue

Monk

Monk

Thank you so much. This is just the type of flower she once loved so dearly.

Monk

I can rest easy now.

Monk

I must be off. Take especially good care of yourself, won't you?

Monk

Please, look after Jeralt. She'd have wanted that.
