My friend! The reinforcements the lords sent are
Truth be told, Fort Merceus would’ve made for a
better base of operation.
But that weird pillar of light changes things.
It's pretty scary, honestly... I wonder what it is...
Well, that is how the legend goes in Ailell. If it really
was the rage of the goddess, let's do our best not to
enrage her ever further.
Makes sense. But whatever it was, I've never seen
destructive power quite like it. I wonder where it
You think it's natural? What, the planet just up and
decided to take a shot at the fort? I dunno, Teach.
Well, I guess pondering it is a waste of energy for
now. Let's just get ready to move out.
The capital is Edelgard's domain, so she has the
advantage. It's going to be a tough battle.
Professor. At last, the end is nigh.
I love the Empire. Part of me wants it to survive.
But I know that is not reasonable. The Empire's time
What we need now is a mighty leader who can
rebuild Fódlan and rule it as a single nation.
Nonetheless, it saddens me that we will not have an
They used to call Enbarr the city of Seiros...
To assault it, together with the knights, is surreal.
If Seiros were alive today, I wonder what she might
make of our war...
In Enbarr, there was once a Southern Church, and
apparently a bishop was dispatched to it.
A hundred years ago, the Southern Church became
entangled in an insurrection.
Until five years ago, the Empire and the church
maintained a certain distance from one another.
It's such a relief that we've made it this far without
having to fight my father.
Hey, don't try and scare me!
You bet I'm scared! The Imperial army hasn't lost a
single battle with my father on the field!
If he turns up as a reinforcement during the assault,
we might lose. I better make my peace with that.
Professor! My, um, my mother might be in the city.
I don't have many good memories of her if I'm being
honest, but she's dearer to me than my father.
If you happen to see her, please make sure she's not
caught up in all the fighting.
She's only a civil servant, so hopefully she takes a
cue from her Bernie and stays inside.
The whole of the capital is going to be
The city has such a long heritage... Even so, perhaps
it deserves to be reduced to ashes for once.
But we can't let the commonfolk get hurt. We should
try to confine the damage to the noble section
Five years ago...Edelgard said a thing to me.
Brigid is a vassal of the Empire.
But she also said I always have the freedom to be
choosing whether I am with or not with her.
I will become the ruler of Brigid. So she said I must
make my own path.
So now, my path and her path will be colliding.
The Death Knight is no ordinary knight.
I will prey upon him. I will quench my blade's thirst
with his blood.
His focus is on fighting you, I'm sure. But mine will
be the last face he sees.
Those things appeared as soon as we got ourselves
set up in Fort Merceus.
Think what might have happened if they'd have hit
us during the battle at Gronder Field.
Assuming it was the work of the Imperial army...
So Enbarr, the capital of the Empire. It's finally time.
I never thought I'd live this long.
It's like any battle, really—stay calm, stay focused.
Don't give in to the enemy or your own fear.
Hey, I'm always serious! When I'm chasing girls or
preparing for battle, always serious. That's me...
Striking down the Empire is my offering to
Heh, I left the Kingdom... What am I saying?
It's been so long since I've been to the
I used to go to the opera there with my mother
I never thought my return would be like this...
Enbarr... Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine
I'd be returning like this.
Of course, most of the nobles in the Empire make
their home in the capital.
In the Kingdom, all nobles live in their own domains.
So if the capital is attacked, it doesn't necessarily
affect them directly.
What will happen to the Imperial nobles when their
capital becomes a battlefield?
Once this battle is over, what will become of
Faerghus and Fódlan?
Peace you say? It sounds so...foreign, so unattainable.
But maybe, just maybe.
My hope is for a world at peace. A world in which
this present turmoil is a thing of the past—the stuff
I believe those who survive the atrocities of war have
a duty to create a new, better world.
So the sooner we can stamp out such turmoil,
We must win, Professor. There is no alternative here.
I won't allow for anything else.
I was taught from a young age to believe that the
creed of Seiros was just the way of the world.
To question it never even occurred to me.
But Claude and Edelgard are different. They
challenge the common wisdom. Even defy it.
It is uncomfortable to discard familiar assumptions.
But that is an essential quality of the visionary.
Indeed, true greatness must lie beyond common
sense. Hmm, that's good. I should write that down.
We're heading up to Enbarr next. I hope I make it
back safe so I can tell my little sis about it!
I hear they got a neat opera house there where
Manuela used to perform. What was it called again?
Nah, that doesn't sound right!
Ah, that's the one!
My little sis always goes on about how much she'd
like to see 'em perform.
I know we can't see a show, but do you think we
could at least see the building?
We're about to put the finishing touches on this war.
I wonder how Fódlan will look without the backdrop
of death and destruction. I can't wait to see it!
On the other hand, I'm terrified of what the future
might hold. Who knows if I'll survive the assault on
Invading the capital and smashing the Empire.
I wonder if doing so could really end this war.
Care to share your thoughts, Professor?
You say that with such confidence. I want to believe
that it's true.
Perhaps you feel similarly to me. The whole mess
puts me on edge.
Although for now, better to focus my efforts on the
fight at hand.
If we can win this war, then Claude will be the king
of Fódlan, and...
Maybe he'll tear down the wall that separates Fódlan
from the outside world.
I know it's hard to imagine...
But I really hope he does. It would be so much better
if people could live together instead of apart.
I might even be able to live an ordinary life in the
world Claude envisions...
Fighting in the capital! Ugh! And we're fighting
against Edelgard! Double ugh!
But with you leading us, Professor, I know we'll win.
Yeah! Wahoo! Fighting!
I'm a little scared, to be honest. I'm just shouting to
relieve the tension, but I'll be fine.
We're finally going to the capital. This will be my
chance to avenge Captain Jeralt.
Once we smash the Empire, I'm sure his soul will
finally be able to rest in peace.
Monica killed Captain Jeralt for the Flame Emperor,
and the Flame Emperor was Edelgard.
I know that the future of all Fódlan rests on this
battle. Nothing else is more important.
But for me, this is personal. For Captain Jeralt's sake,
I'm going to give it all I've got and more!
Rhea will be somewhere in the city. I wonder if she
can sense us coming.
If we are able to save her, then I expect you will learn
many secrets that have hitherto been kept from you.
Are you prepared for that?
That is unfortunate. Well, you must become ready.
The battle will soon be upon us. Let us both be at
our best for what is to come.
I was born in Enbarr.
My mother and father met in a church there. Not
too long after, I was brought into the world.
I do not understand how war can happen in such
a precious place. It is most regrettable.
Enbarr's streets are paved with unhappy
I've avoided the damned place ever since I
abandoned my nobility. Swore never to return.
Now here we are. To return in this manner... Well,
I can't say it is something I ever imagined.
In the opera, actors came and went all the time. But
the people behind the scenes would stay forever.
I'll bet I'd know a few of them now, even after
all these years.
They've probably left the capital by now. Although...
I'm still worried about them.
I wonder if they've left the capital. I certainly
Here we are, facing the final battle with the Empire.
It's been a long, difficult struggle.
We have to get Lady Rhea back! And we have to
crush the Empire, in the name of Captain Jeralt.
I don't know what comes next. But we can sort out
those details later.
Looks like we're nearing the end of this struggle.
I'm sure Lady Rhea is on tenterhooks waiting for me
to swoop in and rescue her.
I was just kidding! Pay me no mind.
Oof... You don't mince your words. Try being a bit
more mindful of other people's feelings.
Lady Rhea's not waiting for me, I know, no matter
how much I might wish she were. She's waiting
Ten years ago, Dagda and Brigid attacked the
Empire from the west.
Their final target was the capital.
But they were countered at a port town, long before
they reached their destination.
I guess our attempt has been more successful than
theirs, all things considered.
Whenever I think about how we'll be seeing Lady
Rhea real soon, I get happy and really get cleaning!
We'll get there for sure, right? We'll see her again?
I just gotta believe Lady Rhea is waiting for us in the
capital... We just have to find her.
That Nardel guy...or Nader, I suppose. It was all
some trick, and we fell for it.
Hmph. I don't think the nickname "The Undefeated"
applies if he flees from us.
Though...maybe he only got that name by running
away. Can't be defeated if you run off, right?
Greetings, Professor! Nothing to report!
Momentum's really picking up for this final battle,
huh? Even I'm starting to feel tense! Me!
Enbarr's history goes back 1,400 years. That even
predates the founding of the Empire.
It's one of the sacred sites of the Seiros faith, so it's
a pretty big deal.
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!
Did you know? A magnificent canal flows through
It's said to have been constructed under the guidance
of Saint Seiros before the Empire was even formed.
Ever since, that canal has been a major lifeline
for the capital's development.
And now this is how the Empire repays it...
Truly, no good deed goes unpunished.
Reinforcements from the Alliance are still incoming.
Perhaps we can wait...at least until we have an even
balance of power.
Plenty of supplies have made it through from the
Eastern Church and the Merchant's Association
in the Alliance.
All the people of the Alliance believe we can win,
so they're doing everything they can to support us.
That means we have to do our best to live up to
Of course, the Alliance is making sure that the Five
Great Lords help with the effort, but we'll be getting
support from the smaller territories too.
I'll bet this is the first time those territories have
worked so closely together, at least since the
founding of the Alliance.
Just recently, the fish in the pond suddenly started
thrashing around like mad.
I didn't know what was going on, and then I saw
something gleaming in the southeastern sky.
It happened right when you were out on campaign.
I wonder what it could have been...
With the Empire destroyed, the borders within
Fódlan will likely become a thing of the past.
With that, the rules of trade will change. Personally,
I'm excited to see what these changes will bring!
There are all kinds of rumors about you spreading
through the Alliance. Some say you're the new
embodiment of Saint Seiros herself!
Claude's popularity has certainly risen too.
The Empire's army should be divided now,
with significant troops still in the west.
If they don't assert their authority over the old
Kingdom's lords, they'll never know when an
uprising might start.
Ironically, as soon as we capture the Imperial
capital, the old Kingdom's lords are likely to
rise up immediately.
Just a few months ago, I thought it was impossible to
secure a victory against the Imperial army.
But you've shown me miracles can happen after all.
I believe that victory is within your grasp!
It's very likely that Lady Rhea is confined in the
If so, then our strategy will be to gain control of
the streets, and then assault the castle.
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.
Cornelia took control of the Kingdom capital,
and then founded the Faerghus Dukedom in
the old Kingdom territory.
Still, Faerghus has remained a mere spectator
with regard to our actions so far.
It's not so surprising when you consider that they
can't even get a handle on the Fraldarius territories.
Claude's quite the idealist, isn't he? Not that I've got
room to talk.
His ambitions are lofty and, well, reckless. One false
move, and Fódlan is done for.
Although, unrelenting idealism with a dash of
recklessness can change the world.
Nader the Undefeated... With a name like that,
he's bound to put up a damn-good fight.
Did you get a good look at Judith? She practically
had hearts floating out of her eyeballs when she
looked at Nader.
You saw it too? Heh, I know that look well. She's
got it bad. Honestly, they'd make a cute couple.
Pretty dense, aren't ya? Trust me, pal. No one's
seen more heart-eyed women than this guy.
She's got it bad.
It makes all the sense. Even seasoned warriors aren't
immune to love, pal.
Destroying the walls that separate Fódlan from the
outside world strikes me as a bold step.
I've spent so long struggling to reclaim the past that
Claude's vision of the future casts me in a poor light.
Oh! Did you think I was serious? Ahahaha!
As if I would ever admit to a fault.
Ensuring that the tradition of House Nuvelle
continues uninterrupted is a noble task!
I don't know much about Almyrans, but I guess
I have something in common with them.
We're viewed as different because of where we came
from. There must be a lot of people like us.
That's what I thought. People from the north,
the west, and even some isolated communities
You're not sure? Well, I bet there are.
And if that's the case, maybe Claudester's got the
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.
Remember that battle six years ago? Oh... Um,
I'm guessing you do. Anyway, remember that knight
who watched over Abyss with me for a while?
I've been on the hunt for his whereabouts and...
I finally found out what happened to him.
My friend...is no longer with us. Dead. Figured as
much, but now I know for sure. I did get to meet his
big sister, at least.
I'll never have the chance to thank him for our time
together...but maybe I can find a way to help out his
sister instead. Bet he would have liked that.
Those lights that came down on Merceus...I might
have seen them before, here at Garreg Mach.
They looked like they'd rain down right on top of us,
but at the last moment, they veered off...
I think they crashed into Ailell. It must have been
the goddess's blessing that protected us.
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.
