Hey there, my friend. It's funny how the monastery was once in ruins, but now it's downright bustling.

Claude
volume_up

Thanks to a little promise five years ago, our buddies have all gathered, and even the knights have returned.

Claude
volume_up

It's like we were all just waiting for you to awaken.

Claude
volume_up

And now we're all going to band together against the Imperial army.

Claude
volume_up

You should go and talk to everyone, if you can. There may be some who are still on the fence.

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

A country with no king has no future.

Felix
volume_up

That's why I made my way here. Professor, don't let me down.

Felix
volume_up

Hmph. You'll understand soon enough.

Felix
volume_up

Yes, let's. Find me a worthy opponent to battle and I'll be content.

Sylvain

link
Sylvain
volume_up

I'm the heir of House Gautier, and I'm fighting alongside a bunch of Alliance people?

Sylvain
volume_up

I can just imagine my father's face contorted in anger and the delightful words he must have used to describe me.

Sylvain
volume_up

I don't know how staying and fighting for Faerghus would have helped.

Sylvain
volume_up

Sorry, Professor. I don't regret my decisions. I'm just thinking out loud.

Sylvain
volume_up

And I'm hoping I haven't made a big mistake.

Mercedes

link
Mercedes
volume_up

You're here, Professor, along with everyone from our old class. It's like we've gone back in time!

Mercedes
volume_up

When I think that I'll be around you again, all of my sorrows just drift away.

Mercedes
volume_up

Hmm, I understand. Especially with Lady Rhea missing...

Mercedes
volume_up

It sounds like the Kingdom and Empire have been in a sorry state too. But we can't let that get us down!

Mercedes
volume_up

Hmm, yes. I'll at least try not to hold anyone back.

Mercedes
volume_up

Let's work together for the common good, like we did five years ago!

Annette

link
Annette
volume_up

Members of the knights tell me that Father left their ranks five years ago.

Annette
volume_up

They say he announced he was returning to the Kingdom, but nobody's heard from him since.

Annette
volume_up

I haven't received word that he went back home to Mother...

Annette
volume_up

Where could he be... Where are you, Father...

Ingrid

link
Ingrid
volume_up

Professor. I have a proposal.

Ingrid
volume_up

Why not go beyond the Knights of Seiros—instead, uniting with allies from all across Fódlan to fight for our cause?

Ingrid
volume_up

Looking back, it would have been best to ally with the Kingdom and join forces against the Empire. But now the Kingdom is not exactly... Well...

Lorenz

link
Lorenz
volume_up

I have written to my father to signal my intention to remain here. Not that I require his approval to do so.

Lorenz
volume_up

There is not much for me to gain by returning to Alliance territory now.

Lorenz
volume_up

But by staying, I will be able to influence the course of events directly, on the field of battle.

Lorenz
volume_up

We will not be friends, but I will cooperate with him as much as is necessary to secure victory.

Lorenz
volume_up

Naturally. Someone needs to make certain he does not lead the Alliance to ruin.

Raphael

link
Raphael
volume_up

Fighting alongside you and everyone else is a dream come true, Professor!

Raphael
volume_up

And don't worry about my little sis. Right now she's back home helping out with the family business.

Raphael
volume_up

I kinda figured I was gonna be stuck going back and taking over for her.

Raphael
volume_up

But thanks to you and Claude, I get to work on my dream of becoming a proper knight!

Ignatz

link
Ignatz
volume_up

It's been fixed up quite a bit, but its battle scars aren't so easily erased...

Ignatz
volume_up

To think that a glorious cathedral, with a thousand year history...would end up like this.

Ignatz
volume_up

I'll rebuild this place someday. This cathedral is the symbol of Fódlan.

Ignatz
volume_up

Maybe I should paint a picture of the beautiful cathedral of old, while I still remember what it looked like...

Lysithea

link
Lysithea
volume_up

I've grown weary and impatient—these past five years, my hands have been bound.

Lysithea
volume_up

But now, I can finally take action with a clear goal. I'm grateful to you and to everyone.

Lysithea
volume_up

Nonsense. Your presence steeled everyone's resolve.

Lysithea
volume_up

Down with the Empire! Surely peace will soon follow if the Empire is overthrown. Then my parents can finally find peace themselves.

Marianne

link
Marianne
volume_up

Even with the church in shambles, we can still pray.

Marianne
volume_up

The goddess will surely hear our prayers, but still...

Marianne
volume_up

I hope the church can return to its former beauty someday.

Hilda

link
Hilda
volume_up

I'm pretty headstrong, but Claude could give me a run for my money.

Hilda
volume_up

I mean, he's dragged the knights into this. You ought to be careful, Professor.

Hilda
volume_up

I wonder if you've got a hidden headstrong side? You must be hiding it really well though.

Hilda
volume_up

Don't worry about me. I'm here because I wanna be. Also because being around my big brother feels like a real chore.

Leonie

link
Leonie
volume_up

It's not just for my village that I'm fighting alongside you here, you know.

Leonie
volume_up

It's also that Captain Jeralt asked me, his first and greatest apprentice, to look out for you.

Leonie
volume_up

Of course, it wouldn't be enough just to keep you alive. It's my duty to make sure you win too.

Leonie
volume_up

So, do your best, Professor. And count on me to watch your back.

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

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.

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.

Cyril
volume_up

You gotta find her, Professor. You just gotta.

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 Kingdom is also vastly different than before. I guess we'll never return to the world as it was five years ago...

Yuri

Yuri
volume_up

Well, hello. It's been a while, hasn't it? Are you really so surprised to see me here?

Yuri
volume_up

I flew here just as soon as I heard you were alive. I care more than you may realize.

Yuri
volume_up

Are you now? I will admit, hearing that does make my heart flutter a bit.

Yuri
volume_up

Yes. Let's.

Yuri
volume_up

So long as our efforts are aligned, I'll happily work alongside you.

Balthus

link Verdant Wind
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 Verdant Wind
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

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

Anna

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

Anna
volume_up

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
volume_up

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

Abysskeeper

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

Looks like the Knights of Seiros have returned. I wonder if Mr. Backup is back too...

Rogue

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.
