I can finally kill her... Finally... I can avenge them...

Ferdinand

Ferdinand

We captured the Great Bridge of Myrddin, but the fight has only just begun.

Ferdinand

Enbarr, the Imperial Capital, lies far to the south, beyond Gronder Field.

Ferdinand

And waiting for us on the way there is the entire Imperial army, with twice as many troops as us.

Ferdinand

We had better brace ourselves.

Linhardt

Linhardt

I seem to lack the skills required to grieve for the dead.

Linhardt

If someone has passed, even someone dear to me, I could stand about and wail or get on with my life.

Linhardt

While I'm at it, that whole idea that we must speak well of the dead? I don't understand that either.

Linhardt

If I didn't like them when they were alive, then why pretend to do so when they are no longer here?

Caspar

Caspar

After we cross the Great Bridge of Myrddin, we'll be in my father's territory.

Caspar

We actually crossed it five years ago for the Battle of the Eagle and Lion. Remember?

Caspar

Ugh! This is terrifying! What am I gonna do? I gotta get a grip...

Caspar

You think we'll meet him on the battlefield and he'll kill me? The front lines cover a long stretch of land, you know! We might not even run into him!

Caspar

Oh, no no no. You should pray we don't run into him at all! The front lines cover a long stretch of land, you know!

Bernadetta

Bernadetta

So the campaign continues, does it? Well, allow me, as a professional recluse with ten years of experience, to volunteer for, um...staying behind.

Bernadetta

Oh, who am I kidding? The fighting won't stop until we've defeated Edelgard, will it?

Bernadetta

Or until we lose, I guess. But there's not much use in thinking about that.

Dorothea

link
Dorothea

The Great Bridge of Myrddin was considerably better fortified than it was five years ago...

Dorothea

The bridge was full of soldiers...and they all died.

link
Dorothea

And Ferdie was there. We killed Ferdie, Professor, he used to be our friend. Do you remember those days?

Petra

Petra

Nobles who are changing allegiance, again and again. I do not have understanding for that.

Petra

How can you trust if treason comes with ease? How can you be calling yourself a noble?

Petra

I do not have understanding of the reasoning...

Petra

Surviving is more difficult without trust. There must be...some other goal.

Petra

Survival has more importance than that. Are they not knowing this?

Dedue

Dedue

You have my sincerest gratitude.

Dedue

Circumstances, and my wounds, have prevented me from being by His Highness's side these five years.

Dedue

I am grateful that you have found him for me. I am once again in your debt.

Felix

Felix

As powerful as our knights are, we're outnumbered. By a long shot. This won't be easy.

Felix

It's crazy to attempt this. I guess I'm crazy to go along with it.

Ashe

link
Ashe

If we defeat the Imperial army at Gronder Field, what will our next objective be?

Ashe

I guess we won't have much choice but to try to take Fort Merceus, on the far side of Gronder Field.

Ashe

It's probably too soon for us to be thinking about that, isn't it?

Ashe

The battle just ahead of us is far from certain.

Sylvain

link
Sylvain

Say we do manage to take down Edelgard here... What do you think His Highness will do next?

Sylvain

As long as there's a plan, I won't complain. I just, you know, wanna know there is a plan.

Sylvain

Yeah, I suppose that's the most likely plan since we're traveling with the church and everything.

Sylvain

Heh, well, I'd be happy if that were the case, but I don't figure that'll actually happen.

Sylvain

All this isn't just gonna magically end the moment we kill Edelgard. It's gone too far.

Sylvain

Heh, well, if even you can't say, I guess it's not surprising the rest of us don't know either.

Sylvain

I suppose we should focus on the battle right in front of us instead of what happens later.

Mercedes

Mercedes

So, we're finally going to set foot in the Empire... I'm starting to get a little nervous.

We already fought Ferdinand at the Great Bridge of Myrddin, but...

Annette

Annette

The thought of fighting people who were once our friends...it makes my heart heavy.

Annette

If it was gonna come to this, maybe I should have avoided making friends with people from the Empire and the Alliance to begin with...

Annette

You think so too, Professor? I'm glad it's not just me.

Annette

I just don't know, Professor. I'm having a hard time with it.

Annette

It did often seem strange to me at the academy that we were studying with all these people from all over the world.

Annette

But I feel like I've finally started to understand the real reason behind it.

Annette

The more you get to know people from other places, the harder you'll try to avoid fighting wars with them...

Ingrid

link
Ingrid

Yet another grand battle awaits. Many will lose their lives.

Ingrid

I am well aware. This is war, after all.

Ingrid

Yes, let's. We must both make it home in one piece.

Ingrid

Even considering those we are up against—friends from a time now past—I won't hold back.

Lorenz

link
Lorenz

So, Claude and my father have made peace. That is to be expected.

Lorenz

They both prioritize their own interests above all else. So long as those interests are in alignment, they will continue to cooperate.

Lorenz

And based on that reasoning, one might infer that the Alliance should be also willing to work with the Kingdom's military.

Lorenz

I highly doubt Claude would refuse to assist us, if we were to ask.

Raphael

link
Raphael

I gotta say, it's tough to keep the fighting spirit alive when you recognize your enemies on the battlefield.

Raphael

So you can't avoid it, huh? How did everything get so messed up?

Raphael

Hey, come on! Even I know we can't do that!

Raphael

Just because we're fighting someone doesn't mean we gotta hate 'em!

Raphael

That's probably the worst thing about war. Win or lose, I still get a bad taste in my mouth.

Ignatz

link
Ignatz

Thanks to our victory, I've been able to study the Great Bridge of Myrddin at my leisure.

Ignatz

And you know what? It's an astounding structure. So much history there.

Ignatz

Imagine how much time and effort it must have taken to build something that big. Over water, no less!

Ignatz

I hope that someday it will be opened up to the people of Fódlan—a historical site, rather than a military checkpoint.

Lysithea

link
Lysithea

I'm glad you're the one giving orders on the battlefield, Professor. I don't think we should trust Dimitri with that task...

Lysithea

Although it's thanks to his obsession that we're wasting no time, taking the shortest route to defeating the Empire.

Lysithea

I just can't see a bright future for this army, fighting as we are under the banner of a prince possessed.

Lysithea

Even if we do succeed in defeating the Empire, I wonder what will become of Fódlan.

Lysithea

I apologize. Whenever I'm with you, I speak more openly than I should. Please keep this between us.

Marianne

Marianne

The situation in the Alliance has changed so much, but I haven't heard a word from my adoptive father...

Marianne

Do you think he's forgotten about me?

Marianne

If that's the case, I hope he gets even busier.

Marianne

I'm not overly concerned about him...

Marianne

I'd actually be happier if he really did forget about me. Everything would be so much easier...

Hilda

link
Hilda

I heard the next battle might take us to Gronder Field. Is that right?

Hilda

Reminds me of the Battle of the Eagle and Lion. But of course, that was a very different time.

Hilda

When it was over, all three class heads complimented each other on their bravery.

Hilda

And then we had a party. But we can never go back to that, can we?

Leonie

link
Leonie

I heard Edelgard is going to be leading her forces personally in the next battle.

Leonie

Seems pretty reckless to charge right into this one. I'm not sure I like our chances. What do you think?

Leonie

I don't know why you're so confident, but it does somehow make me feel better.

Leonie

Hey, how come you only ever flatter me in times like these? What am I supposed to make of that?

Leonie

Anyway, we've come this far. Let's just keep putting one foot in front of the other and see how far we get.

Seteth

link
Seteth

Each time we press forward, our search for Rhea broadens to a wider area.

Seteth

I certainly hope we will find at least some clue, but I do suspect I already know where she is.

Seteth

If I am right, and she is in the Imperial capital, then we cannot save her until we topple the Empire.

Flayn

link
Flayn

The Battle of the Eagle and Lion. Has it truly been five years since then?

Flayn

Can you recall whether it was before or after I joined your class, Professor?

Flayn

That is not at all the case, Professor. Your memory serves you poorly.

Flayn

I am glad you have not forgotten.

Flayn

It was shortly after I joined your class—I remember it like it was yesterday.

Hanneman

Hanneman

When undertaking research, the usual method is to form a hypothesis, then test it with experiments.

Hanneman

Those experiments reveal facts and falsehoods, yet sometimes, they also unveil an exception.

Hanneman

You seem to be that exception when it comes to my Crest research.

Hanneman

Worry not, Professor. Exceptions are what make my work interesting. Why don't the rules apply to you?

Hanneman

I will find out, eventually. I feel it is my destiny as a Crest scholar!

Manuela

Manuela

I hear the next battle could be a big one, is that true?

Manuela

I miss the old days when, if someone got hurt, we'd rush them to the infirmary and make them well...

Manuela

But on the battlefield, there's not enough time to help. People die. Professor, don't be one of those!

Word just reached me that the Empire has stationed soldiers in Fort Merceus.

I hear it's an impregnable keep, surrounded by high ramparts. Taking it would not be easy.

Catherine

Catherine

Hey, Professor. It's been a while... Well, actually not that long.

If you're here about the reinforcements, no need to worry. I've sorted everything out with my father.

Reconnaissance is becoming more of a risk the deeper we move into enemy territory.

Good. We have to be realistic.

Greetings, Professor! Nothing to report!

Gatekeeper

I hear we're sending troops to Gronder Field next. Is that what's what?

Gatekeeper

That whole area is in the territory of House Bergliez. It's famous as the main granary of Fódlan.

Gatekeeper

If we could capture it, we probably wouldn't have to worry about food anymore! Bread for all!

I can hardly believe we're crossing the borders of the Empire to battle their army. I never thought I'd see the day.

Soldier

You'd never guess from the calm looks on everyone's faces, though... I mean, we're probably all gonna die, let's be honest.

Soldier

His Highness, Lord Rodrigue, you... There's really something wrong with the lot of you, I swear...

Merchant

Merchant

Yeah... You know, war really is terrible. People die, food becomes scarce...

Merchant

Weapons and rations start selling like hotcakes, nobles start begging for loans...

Oh, um, I didn't mean... I didn't mean for that to sound so cold, really.

Merchant

Anyway, where are we off to this time? I hope it's the Alliance...

Soldier

Edelgard's presence suggests that Hubert is around too.

He's been around Edelgard since they were children. I suppose he must be pretty happy with his current position.
