Dimitri

Our next battlefield will be the Imperial capital. There will be no turning back.

Dimitri

If you have any unfinished business here, you had best settle it before we depart.

Dimitri

I apologize, but you'll have to make do with the time you have. We cannot afford a delay.

Dimitri

I knew I could count on you. Good luck.

Ferdinand

Ferdinand

Professor. At last, the end is nigh.

Ferdinand

I love the Empire. Part of me wants it to survive.

Ferdinand

But I know that is not reasonable. The Empire's time has come.

Ferdinand

The Kingdom is battle-scarred, the Alliance is in tatters... People must be terrified. The world is crumbling around them.

Ferdinand

What we need now is a mighty leader who can rebuild Fódlan and rule it as a single nation.

Ferdinand

Nonetheless, it saddens me that we will not have an Adrestian emperor...

Linhardt

Linhardt

When you think of it, as one approaches the end of a war, the sacrifices only grow larger, don't they?

Linhardt

The winning side musters their forces and attempts to strike a decisive blow...

Linhardt

While those of the losing side make desperate attempts to turn the war in their favor.

Linhardt

Neither side will give. I only wish we'd consider those who lose their lives in that struggle.

Linhardt

Yes, exactly my point. Let's be careful to ensure we don't lose our own lives, Professor.

Linhardt

Perhaps, but that doesn't make it any easier to accept your own survival depends on a throw of the dice.

Linhardt

I can appreciate that, but just because a choice is better does not mean that it's good.

Caspar

link
Caspar

It's such a relief that we've made it this far without having to fight my father.

Caspar

Are you trying to scare me? What if he turns up while we're charging the capital?!

Caspar

You bet I'm scared! The Imperial army hasn't lost a single battle with my father on the field!

Caspar

But still, I wonder what'll happen to him if we win...

Bernadetta

link
Bernadetta

Professor! My, um, my mother might be in the city.

Bernadetta

I don't have many good memories of her if I'm being honest, but she's dearer to me than my father.

Bernadetta

If you happen to see her, please make sure she's not caught up in all the fighting.

Bernadetta

She's only a civil servant, so hopefully she takes a cue from her Bernie and stays inside.

Dorothea

Dorothea

I keep thinking the war is near its end, then it isn't...

Dorothea

When can we finally put this dreadful war behind us?

Dorothea

That would be wonderful. Imagine, the last moment of combat...then peace. It sounds like a fairy tale.

Dorothea

I want to make this a world where there is no fighting, where children can grow up happy and safe.

Dorothea

I suppose you're right...

Dorothea

But we should still try our best to make the world a place where children can grow up happy and safe.

Petra

link
Petra

Five years ago...Edelgard said a thing to me.

Petra

Brigid is a vassal of the Empire.

Petra

But she also said I always have the freedom to be choosing whether I am with or not with her.

Petra

I will become the ruler of Brigid. So she said I must make my own path.

Petra

So now, my path and her path will be colliding.

Dedue

Dedue

I believe in you. But please ensure that His Highness survives as well.

Dedue

Fódlan's future would be in peril if we lost him. I would not be able to go on.

Dedue

Thank you.

Dedue

Good.

Felix

Felix

He intends to speak to the emperor?

Felix

She's his stepsister, I know, but this seems risky.

Felix

Pah! I know that!

Felix

No, I'm not. I'm sure he's thought it through.

Felix

If the two can settle this diplomatically, that would be the best way out of this mess. No more bloodshed.

Felix

Let's just hope he doesn't become so overwhelmed with emotion that he's unable to strike her down... should the need arise.

Ashe

link
Ashe

Returning to the monastery brings back so many memories from five years ago.

Ashe

Hard to believe we only spent a year together here.

Ashe

So much happened that it felt a lot longer than that. But it was all so exciting. And so much fun.

Ashe

Honestly, I think those memories are what's kept me fighting this long.

Ashe

What was that year like for you, Professor?

Ashe

I don't think I could ask for a better answer.

Ashe

Ah...yeah, there were a lot of hard times too.

Ashe

Let's all do our best to survive this, so we can come back here when it's all over.

Ashe

I know that's what I'll be doing.

Sylvain

link
Sylvain

I've been thinking about how we've got our own ideas about justice...and so does the Empire.

Sylvain

And what's coming, it's not just a battle between us and them. It's our ideals that are fighting.

Sylvain

Whoever wins will say they were right and the other side was wrong. And I get it. That's how it goes...

Sylvain

But nobody's willing to talk or compromise, so we'll fight to the death to prove the other guy's wrong.

Sylvain

It won't be an easy battle, but let's make sure we come back alive. Right, Professor?

Mercedes

link
Mercedes

We'll be heading for the capital soon. So much rests on this moment.

Mercedes

Will the war really be over if we take the capital?

Mercedes

You're probably right...but we'll get there eventually.

Mercedes

Yay! I'm sure it won't end right away, but that's still great news!

Mercedes

I truly believe that a peaceful future is waiting at the end of all this.

Annette

Annette

I hope this is the final battle. Don't you, Professor?

Annette

When the war is over, everyone will be busy with their own lives...

Annette

But let's all meet up again someday. Right here at Garreg Mach.

Annette

You, His Highness, my father, our monastery friends, the knights...everyone!

Annette

It was just a silly whim I had, but I really love it!

Annette

All that matters is whether we choose to make it happen. I really hope that we do!

Annette

Ooh, and I'll bake a bunch of desserts for it! Reunion sweets!

Annette

All we have to do now is win! Let's get to it, Professor!

Ingrid

Ingrid

I'm so glad that you were assigned to the Blue Lion House, Professor.

Ingrid

We made it this far thanks to your guidance and leadership.

Ingrid

There's a bitter fight ahead—that much is certain. You have my lance.

Ingrid

Yes. Let's do this together!

Lorenz

link
Lorenz

At last, we've come to the final confrontation! Ruin to the Empire! Glory to Faerghus!

Lorenz

Of course, to be perfectly honest, I would have much preferred to march against the Empire at the head of the Alliance.

Lorenz

But I suppose I have Claude to thank for denying me that satisfaction, don't I?

Raphael

link
Raphael

We're heading up to Enbarr next. I hope I make it back safe so I can tell my little sis about it!

Raphael

I hear they got a neat opera house there where Manuela used to perform. What was it called again?

Raphael

Nah, that doesn't sound right!

Raphael

Ah, that's the one!

Raphael

Nah, that doesn't sound right!

Raphael

My little sis always goes on about how much she'd like to see them perform.

Raphael

I know we can't see a show, but do you think we could at least see the building?

Ignatz

link
Ignatz

We're about to put the finishing touches on this war.

Ignatz

I wonder how Fódlan will look without the backdrop of death and destruction. I can't wait to see it!

Ignatz

On the other hand, I'm terrified of what the future might hold. Who knows if I'll survive the assault on the capital?

Lysithea

link
Lysithea

Wanting so desperately to speak with Edelgard just as we're about to fight...

Lysithea

Could it be that the prince is having doubts about killing her?

Lysithea

Then perhaps it is OK.

Lysithea

I suppose they're the only ones who fully understand the extent of their relationship.

Lysithea

He's certainly changed from the vengeful person he once was.

Lysithea

I don't mean that in a bad way. I'm actually relieved.

Lysithea

A king who's responsible for Fódlan's future can't exact personal vendettas and have a cold heart.

Marianne

Marianne

Dear Goddess...

Marianne

Yes... I was praying for your safety.

Marianne

Um...for your safety.

Marianne

I'll do all I can to survive, but please...please don't die out there, Professor.

Hilda

Hilda

Fighting in the capital! Ugh! And we're fighting against Edelgard! Double ugh!

Hilda

But with you leading us, Professor, I know we'll win.

Hilda

Yeah! Wahoo! Fighting!

Hilda

I'm a little scared, to be honest. I'm just shouting to relieve the tension, but I'll be fine.

Leonie

Leonie

At last, it's time to face the Flame Emperor... Edelgard.

Leonie

I know that the future of all Fódlan rests on this battle. Nothing else is more important.

Leonie

But for me, this is personal. For Captain Jeralt's sake, I'm going to give it all I've got and more!

Seteth

I was born in Enbarr.

Flayn

My mother and father met in a church there. Not too long after, I was brought into the world.

Flayn

I do not understand how war can happen in such a precious place. It is most regrettable.

Hanneman

link
Hanneman

Enbarr's streets are paved with unhappy memories, Professor.

Hanneman

I've avoided the damned place ever since I abandoned my nobility. Swore never to return.

Hanneman

Now here we are. To return in this manner... Well, I can't say it is something I ever imagined.

Hanneman

Especially as I'm returning to end the Empire. What a strange feeling, breaking one's history.

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!

Gilbert

Gilbert

It matters not how just our cause may be. In the end, war is nothing more than organized murder.

Gilbert

I understand the desire to reach a conclusion, but we mustn't overlook the sins inherent in our deeds.

Gilbert

Heh, sorry. I have a tendency to preach.

Gilbert

We have lost so much, and in return, we have taken much from our enemies.

Gilbert

I pray we can put an end to this cycle of violence.

Alois

Alois

Here we are, facing the final battle with the Empire. It's been a long, difficult struggle.

Alois

We have to get Lady Rhea back! And we have to crush the Empire, in the name of Captain Jeralt.

Alois

He's watching over us now, protecting us. I know he is.

Catherine

Catherine

Looks like we're nearing the end of this struggle.

Catherine

I'm sure Lady Rhea is on tenterhooks waiting for me to swoop in and rescue her.

Catherine

I was just kidding! Pay me no mind.

Catherine

Oof... You don't mince your words. Try being a bit more mindful of other people's feelings.

Catherine

Lady Rhea's not waiting for me, I know, no matter how much I might wish she were. She's waiting for you.

Shamir

Shamir

Ten years ago, Dagda and Brigid attacked the Empire from the west.

Shamir

Their final target was the capital.

Shamir

But they were countered at a port town, long before they reached their destination.

Shamir

We spent a lot of time going back and forth, but at least we made it this far.

Cyril

Cyril

Whenever I think about how we'll be seeing Lady Rhea real soon, I get happy and really get cleaning!

Cyril

We'll get there for sure, right? We'll see her again?

Cyril

I just gotta believe Lady Rhea is waiting for us in the capital... We just have to find her.

Gatekeeper

Gatekeeper

Greetings, Professor! Nothing to report!

Gatekeeper

Momentum's really picking up for this final battle, huh? Even I'm starting to feel tense! Me!

Gatekeeper

Enbarr's history goes back 1,400 years. That even predates the founding of the Empire.

Gatekeeper

It's one of the sacred sites of the Seiros faith, so it's a pretty big deal.

Gatekeeper

But hey, no need to worry about the monastery while you're fighting the final battle. I've got it covered! I'll defend it to my last!

Soldier

Soldier

I...I used to work for Cornelia in Fhirdiad.

Soldier

I only followed her because I didn't want to die, but afterwards I felt so ashamed I wanted to die anyway.

Soldier

I still can't figure out why I did it... Anyway, I'm glad you did what you did.

Soldier

From now on, I'm going to devote myself to the Kingdom, and fight for what I believe in!

Monk

link
Monk

Did you know? A magnificent canal flows through downtown Enbarr.

Monk

It's said to have been constructed under the guidance of Saint Seiros before the Empire was even formed.

Monk

Ever since, that canal has been a major lifeline for the capital's development.

Monk

And now this is how the Empire repays it... Truly, no good deed goes unpunished.

Kingdom Knight

link
Kingdom Knight

Attacking the capital means crossing swords with the emperor herself.

Kingdom Knight

I hope you won't be caught unprepared. I've heard that she'll stop at nothing in the pursuit of victory.

Kingdom Knight

Be careful of that Hubert too. The Minister of the Imperial Household. They say he's a cunning strategist.

Merchant

Merchant

Sorry, but I'm not the fighting type. All I can do is lend you the stuff you need.

Merchant

Win, live, and return, OK? Mostly so you can pay me back for the stuff you borrowed!

Soldier

link
Soldier

I've got a bit of Duscur blood in me. Faerghus is our ancestral enemy.

Soldier

But if that man is going to be the king, I don't see any harm in lending him my blade.

Soldier

I believe that we can forge a proud, new Kingdom.

Soldier

As you can tell, I'm expecting great things. I won't forgive you if you lose!

Merchant

Merchant

While on some business, I went to see how the Kingdom capital is getting on. There are still some things to work out before it can be restored.

Merchant

But generally, things seem to have calmed down. It's on its way to resuming its old energy.

Merchant

I think this will end up being a better Kingdom than before. I really believe that.

Knight of Seiros

It's very likely that Lady Rhea is confined in the Imperial palace.

Knight of Seiros

If so, then our strategy will be to gain control of the streets, and then assault the castle.

Knight of Seiros

A street battle followed by a castle invasion... It's just one battle after another. It'll be tough, but we have to win. For Lady Rhea.

Boy

Boy

I wonder what the emperor looks like... I bet she's really scary.

Boy

Oh, you don't think so? I've never seen her, so I was just guessing.

She tried to destroy the Kingdom and the Alliance, and ordered the capture of the archbishop, right?

Boy

I dunno... Someone who could do such terrible things just has to be really scary looking!

Believe it or not, I'm praying for you too. For you to come back safe.

I hear that damn Dimitri guy plans to chat with the emperor. Can you believe that nonsense?

Really, though. We've been trying to kill each other, and he wants to shoot the breeze? Is he dumb or just insane?

Balthus

No "maybes" about it, pal. You ask me, they should settle it like civilized folk—with their fists.

Balthus

That a fact? Heh, you two are birds of a feather. You ask me, they should throw some fists and be done with it.

Balthus

Guess it's up to the One True King of Grappling to talk some sense into ol' Dimitri. When I'm done with him, he'll be ready to brawl!

Is it true what they say? That the archbishop is a captive of the Empire?

Constance

The loss of my house has proven to be a thorn in my side again and again.

Hapi

Easy for you to say. You obviously know what you're going to do. Which is...what, exactly?

Hapi

I will. Though you already seem to know what you're going to do. Which is...what, exactly?
