Ferdinand

Ferdinand
volume_up

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

Ferdinand
volume_up

But I will never lose my noble heart.

Ferdinand
volume_up

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

Ferdinand
volume_up

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

Ferdinand
volume_up

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

Ferdinand
volume_up

You are right...

Linhardt

Linhardt
volume_up

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
volume_up

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

Linhardt
volume_up

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
volume_up

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

Caspar

link
Caspar
volume_up

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

Caspar
volume_up

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

Caspar
volume_up

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

Bernadetta

link
Bernadetta
volume_up

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

Bernadetta
volume_up

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

Bernadetta
volume_up

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

Bernadetta
volume_up

Oh! Forget you heard anything!

Bernadetta
volume_up

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

Dorothea

Dorothea
volume_up

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

Dorothea
volume_up

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

Dorothea
volume_up

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

Dorothea
volume_up

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

Dorothea
volume_up

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

Petra

link
Petra
volume_up

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

Petra
volume_up

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

Petra
volume_up

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

Petra
volume_up

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

Felix

link
Felix
volume_up

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

Felix
volume_up

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

Felix
volume_up

Please do.

Felix
volume_up

Don't just give up like that.

Felix
volume_up

Don't just give up like that.

Felix
volume_up

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

Felix
volume_up

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

Ashe

Ashe
volume_up

Is...is Dedue really gone?

link
Ashe
volume_up

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

link
Ashe
volume_up

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

link
Ashe
volume_up

Is...is Dedue really gone?

link
Ashe
volume_up

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

link
Ashe
volume_up

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

Sylvain

link
Sylvain
volume_up

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

Sylvain
volume_up

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

Sylvain
volume_up

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

Sylvain
volume_up

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

Mercedes

link
Mercedes
volume_up

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

Mercedes
volume_up

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

Mercedes
volume_up

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

Mercedes
volume_up

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

Mercedes
volume_up

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

Mercedes
volume_up

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

Annette

link
Annette
volume_up

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

Annette
volume_up

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

Annette
volume_up

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

Annette
volume_up

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

Annette
volume_up

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

Ingrid

link
Ingrid
volume_up

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

Ingrid
volume_up

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

Ingrid
volume_up

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

Ingrid
volume_up

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
volume_up

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

Raphael

link
Raphael
volume_up

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

Raphael
volume_up

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

Raphael
volume_up

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

Raphael
volume_up

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

Ignatz

link
Ignatz
volume_up

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

Ignatz
volume_up

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

Ignatz
volume_up

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

Ignatz
volume_up

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
volume_up

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

Lysithea

link
Lysithea
volume_up

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

Lysithea
volume_up

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

Lysithea
volume_up

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

Lysithea
volume_up

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

Lysithea
volume_up

I fight for my own reasons and no others.

Marianne

link
Marianne
volume_up

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

Marianne
volume_up

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

Marianne
volume_up

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

Marianne
volume_up

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

Hilda

link
Hilda
volume_up

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

Hilda
volume_up

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

Hilda
volume_up

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

Leonie

link
Leonie
volume_up

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

Leonie
volume_up

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

Leonie
volume_up

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

Seteth

link
Seteth
volume_up

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

Seteth
volume_up

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

Seteth
volume_up

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

Seteth
volume_up

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

Flayn

link
Flayn
volume_up

Professor, I am so glad you are unharmed!

Flayn
volume_up

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

Flayn
volume_up

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

Hanneman

link
Hanneman
volume_up

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

Hanneman
volume_up

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

Hanneman
volume_up

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

Hanneman
volume_up

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

Hanneman
volume_up

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

Manuela

link
Manuela
volume_up

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

Manuela
volume_up

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

Manuela
volume_up

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

Manuela
volume_up

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

Gilbert

link
Gilbert
volume_up

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

Gilbert
volume_up

Already, rumors spread that they were utterly annihilated.

Gilbert
volume_up

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

Gilbert
volume_up

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

Alois

link
Alois
volume_up

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

Alois
volume_up

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

Alois
volume_up

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

Alois
volume_up

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
volume_up

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

Catherine
volume_up

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

Catherine
volume_up

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

Catherine
volume_up

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

Shamir

link
Shamir
volume_up

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

Shamir
volume_up

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

Shamir
volume_up

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

Cyril

link
Cyril
volume_up

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

Cyril
volume_up

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

Gatekeeper

link
Gatekeeper
volume_up

Greetings, Professor! Nothing to report!

Gatekeeper
volume_up

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

Gatekeeper
volume_up

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
volume_up

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
volume_up

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

Knight of Seiros
volume_up

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

Knight of Seiros
volume_up

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

Knight of Seiros

link
Knight of Seiros
volume_up

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

Knight of Seiros
volume_up

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

Knight of Seiros
volume_up

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

Soldier

link
Soldier
volume_up

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

Soldier
volume_up

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

Soldier
volume_up

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
volume_up

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

Knight of Seiros
volume_up

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

Knight of Seiros
volume_up

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

Yuri

link Azure Moon
Yuri
volume_up

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

Yuri
volume_up

Imperial troops entering Kingdom settlements are destroyed seemingly overnight.

Yuri
volume_up

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
volume_up

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

Balthus

link Azure Moon
Balthus
volume_up

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

Balthus
volume_up

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

Balthus
volume_up

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

Balthus
volume_up

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

Balthus
volume_up

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
volume_up

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

Constance
volume_up

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

Constance
volume_up

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

Constance
volume_up

Your quick acceptance of the truth is gratifying.

Constance
volume_up

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
volume_up

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

Hapi
volume_up

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

Hapi
volume_up

I'll think about forgiving you.

Hapi
volume_up

You're welcome. It wasn't easy.

Hapi
volume_up

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

Anna

link
Anna
volume_up

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

Anna
volume_up

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

Anna
volume_up

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

Anna
volume_up

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

Abysskeeper

link Azure Moon
Abysskeeper
volume_up

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

Abysskeeper
volume_up

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

Abysskeeper
volume_up

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

Abysskeeper
volume_up

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
volume_up

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
volume_up

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

Rogue

A lot of folks cleared out once the fighting started.

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
volume_up

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

Monk
volume_up

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