Hey there, my friend. It's funny how the monastery
was once in ruins, but now it's downright bustling.
Thanks to a little promise five years ago,
our buddies have all gathered, and even
the knights have returned.
It's like we were all just waiting for you to awaken.
And now we're all going to band together against the
You should go and talk to everyone, if you can.
There may be some who are still on the fence.
I have lost my dominion. My nobility may seem like
nothing more than a title.
But I will never lose my noble heart.
I will stop Edelgard, even if it costs me my life.
I have turned my blade against her now. I cannot go
back on that decision.
Professor... Do you think I chose the wrong path?
You are right...
The promise was made five years ago, but I must say
I'm rather impressed by how many of us managed to
Personally, I only showed up because I hoped to see
you again, Professor.
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.
Now that we're all together again, I suppose the
fighting will begin soon.
Hey, Professor! You won't believe what happened!
I figured I couldn't go back to the Empire after
Garreg Mach fell, so I started drifting across the
Kingdom and Alliance.
Then I just happened to run into our old class, so we
came back to the monastery together!
Ah, at last, I return to my domain! My lonely
paradise! My realm of exquisite solitude!
Huh? Professor? Is that, um. Is that you?
You, um. You didn't hear that just now, did you?
Oh! Forget you heard anything!
Right. You didn't? Well, um. Good.
Professor! Oh my! It's so good to see you.
These days, so many old friends seem to be
disappearing. But you... You're here!
It's incredible to see you again after five years!
I have a feeling your name will go down in history.
Edelgard is controlling the Empire. She is putting
the pressure on the Kingdom and Alliance.
Empire and religion are at open war. It will be...
difficult for us at first.
But corrupt nobles are many. That means the
common people will rebel and be joining our side.
With you, Professor, the battle tides will...ah, will
turn. I have certainty.
A country with no king has no future.
That's why I made my way here. Professor, don't let
Hmph. You'll understand soon enough.
Yes, let's. Find me a worthy opponent to battle and
I'll be content.
I'm the heir of House Gautier, and I'm fighting
alongside a bunch of Alliance people?
I can just imagine my father's face contorted in anger
and the delightful words he must have used to
I don't know how staying and fighting for Faerghus
would have helped.
Sorry, Professor. I don't regret my decisions. I'm just
thinking out loud.
And I'm hoping I haven't made a big mistake.
You're here, Professor, along with everyone from our
old class. It's like we've gone back in time!
When I think that I'll be around you again, all of my
sorrows just drift away.
Hmm, I understand. Especially with Lady
It sounds like the Kingdom and Empire have been in
a sorry state too. But we can't let that get us down!
Hmm, yes. I'll at least try not to hold anyone back.
Let's work together for the common good, like we
did five years ago!
Members of the knights tell me that Father left
their ranks five years ago.
They say he announced he was returning to the
Kingdom, but nobody's heard from him since.
I haven't received word that he went back home
Where could he be... Where are you, Father...
Professor. I have a proposal.
Why not go beyond the Knights of Seiros—instead,
uniting with allies from all across Fódlan to fight for
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...
I have written to my father to signal my intention to
remain here. Not that I require his approval to do so.
There is not much for me to gain by returning to
Alliance territory now.
But by staying, I will be able to influence the course
of events directly, on the field of battle.
We will not be friends, but I will cooperate with him
as much as is necessary to secure victory.
Naturally. Someone needs to make certain he does
not lead the Alliance to ruin.
Fighting alongside you and everyone else is a dream
come true, Professor!
And don't worry about my little sis. Right now she's
back home helping out with the family business.
I kinda figured I was gonna be stuck going back and
taking over for her.
But thanks to you and Claude, I get to work on my
dream of becoming a proper knight!
It's been fixed up quite a bit, but its battle scars
aren't so easily erased...
To think that a glorious cathedral, with a thousand
year history...would end up like this.
I'll rebuild this place someday. This cathedral is the
symbol of Fódlan.
Maybe I should paint a picture of the beautiful
cathedral of old, while I still remember what it
I've grown weary and impatient—these past five
years, my hands have been bound.
But now, I can finally take action with a clear goal.
I'm grateful to you and to everyone.
Nonsense. Your presence steeled everyone's resolve.
Down with the Empire! Surely peace will soon
follow if the Empire is overthrown. Then my
parents can finally find peace themselves.
Even with the church in shambles, we can still pray.
The goddess will surely hear our prayers, but still...
I hope the church can return to its former
I'm pretty headstrong, but Claude could give me
a run for my money.
I mean, he's dragged the knights into this. You
ought to be careful, Professor.
I wonder if you've got a hidden headstrong side?
You must be hiding it really well though.
Don't worry about me. I'm here because I wanna be.
Also because being around my big brother feels like a
It's not just for my village that I'm fighting alongside
you here, you know.
It's also that Captain Jeralt asked me, his first and
greatest apprentice, to look out for you.
Of course, it wouldn't be enough just to keep you
alive. It's my duty to make sure you win too.
So, do your best, Professor. And count on me to
watch your back.
Five long years, I've searched for you and the
archbishop. It is a pleasure to see you again.
The Church of Seiros will follow you from now on,
but please do not abandon the search for Lady Rhea.
Thank you. I know the battles ahead will be dire, but
we will support you with all our strength.
Wherever she is, Rhea is doubtlessly waiting for you.
Please do not let her down.
Professor, I am so glad you are unharmed!
No matter the path you walk, I will be with you
every step of the way.
Anything you ask of me, I shall see it through.
You saved my life, and I am in your debt.
Thankfully, it appears the records and equipment I
need for my research have not been damaged.
I am most curious though. You say you were asleep
for five whole years? Incredible.
Perhaps this is another effect of your Crest. I do look
forward to investigating you in greater detail.
Wonderful news! I am most excited to begin.
We must find the time, of course.
I'll have to be content with observing you wherever
you go, then. I cannot waste any opportunity!
My, Professor. You haven't changed a bit!
At your age, I'd expect your whole demeanor
to have changed greatly over five years...
Though I suppose I haven't changed either, right?
Thank you for noticing, by the way.
Ah, just the two of us, forever young. Oh, let me
have my fun.
I'd given up on ever seeing you again. Where have
you been hiding?
Anyway, now that we're reunited in the land of
the living, I must fulfill my promise!
The promise I made to the captain, to keep you safe!
I can't believe you've forgotten. How cold...
That's right! I promised the captain I'd protect you
in his stead, and now I'll make good on my word!
In Lady Rhea's absence, I will follow you.
That's what she would want me to do.
Know that wherever you might lead us, I'll continue
searching for Lady Rhea.
Good, because I will not budge on that point.
Welcome back, Professor.
I don't care how much trouble it is! I will rescue
Lady Rhea, at all costs.
I'm more of a mercenary than a knight these days. I
work to get paid.
I never was too attached to Fódlan. I was considering
But I might change my mind if you're around.
I don't know anything about rebuilding, but I can
sure do my best to clean up the mess.
I'm gonna keep Lady Rhea's room spotless, so she
can use it right away whenever she gets back.
You gotta find her, Professor. You just gotta.
Greetings, Professor! Nothing to report!
You know, it's such a thrill to be able to greet you
like this again!
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!
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!
Things we can't obtain here are likely obtainable by
way of the underground.
Are you unfamiliar with Garreg Mach's
underground? The place is an absolute paradise
for those who can't stay above ground.
Those Abyssian idiots. All they ever do is
We'd best purge the entire underbelly of
It seems that in the last five years, the monks here
have left this place for the town below.
However, once they learn of our return,
perhaps they'll come back.
I hope the monastery can return to normal
During his search for Her Grace, the archbishop,
Seteth has visited churches all across the land.
It served to demonstrate to the devout across Fódlan
that the Church of Seiros is still going strong.
As a result, the faithful are not currently in
a state of chaos.
In the Alliance, the lords have been at odds, so peace
and prosperity have declined there as well.
In particular, bandits have been appearing in large
numbers near the Great Bridge of Myrddin.
Rumor has it that the domain's lord, someone by
the name of Acheron, is a completely ineffectual
During the millennium festival, the leaders of all
territories were supposed to gather together and
pledge perpetual peace.
But now that hope has been dashed, thanks to the
The Kingdom is also vastly different than before.
I guess we'll never return to the world as it was
five years ago...
Well, hello. It's been a while, hasn't it? Are you really
so surprised to see me here?
I flew here just as soon as I heard you were alive.
I care more than you may realize.
Are you now? I will admit, hearing that does
make my heart flutter a bit.
So long as our efforts are aligned, I'll happily work
These past five years have been so chaotic, even the
bounty hunters backed off. I kinda miss the chase.
I don't have family ties worth fighting for, so these
muscles are up for grabs. Use me as you see fit, pal.
You're a smart one. Just point me at a problem and
I'll smash it up for ya.
By that, you mean, "Thank you, Magnanimous King
of Grappling!" Yeah? Well, you're welcome.
If you're worried my skills have dulled from disuse,
think again. I've been fighting thieves to stay sharp.
Ahaha! You have the look of someone relieved
to see me.
Before you ask, yes. My superior spellcraft is yours.
It's your reward for waiting so patiently for me.
I'm sure that you need me, and that is enough.
I recommend that you accept my generous offer.
Your quick acceptance of the truth is gratifying.
But my assistance has a price. I expect you to aid me
in fulfilling my dream of restoring House Nuvelle.
You're back, finally! I've been waiting for so long.
I thought you might have died. But I didn't have
anywhere else to go, so...I stayed here.
I'll think about forgiving you.
You're welcome. It wasn't easy.
I've been kinda lonely. As you might have noticed,
we've lost a few people down here.
Hey, Professor. How's it going? Making lots of coin?
I'd love to catch up, but I'm super busy right now.
Working. For money. You understand.
There's unrest everywhere these days. All of my
fellow merchants seem to be endangered.
I hope things go back to normal soon. People need
more to smile about, aside from my great deals.
Abyss? You're interested in that place, are you?
Ancient sprawling remains deep below
Garreg Mach... That's Abyss.
Some folks have made their home there. Obviously
they all have their reasons and tales to tell.
But only the most enterprising merchant
would venture near it. My advice? Avoid
going there yourself.
Hey, you. Listen up. I've got something to report.
It's you. You're still alive! It's been five whole years,
hasn't it? Time flies when you're standing guard.
That's right. I've been here the whole time. Day in
and day out. Not like I have anywhere else to be.
Looks like the Knights of Seiros have returned.
I wonder if Mr. Backup is back too...
A lot of folks cleared out once the fighting started.
People are saying it was the church that used to keep
order around here.
But it's Yuri who's saving us from complete chaos.
Ah, I see. So you are Jeralt's child. You so resemble
I did indeed. I was acquainted with your parents.
I've been wanting to speak with you for a while now.
I am nothing more than a common monk. I knew
your parents...once upon a time.
I've been gone from the monastery for some time
now because... Well, it matters not.
Might I...ask a favor of you?
Do you mind terribly picking up some fresh flowers
to place upon your mother's grave?
I am certain she'd be deeply moved to receive a gift
Thank you so much. This is just the type of flower
she once loved so dearly.
I can rest easy now.
I must be off. Take especially good care of yourself,
Please, look after Jeralt. She'd have wanted that.
