We crushed the Empire at long last... But there's no time to bask in our victory. We must prepare for the coming battle.

Claude
volume_up

We knew there was a secret group behind the Imperial army all this time.

Claude
volume_up

Now, we have a chance to make the first move against them. We have Hubert to thank for that.

Claude
volume_up

It's also thanks to him that we were able to rescue Rhea. I still have plenty of questions I'd like to ask her.

Claude
volume_up

Well, if we plan to have her march into battle with us again, we'd better let her recuperate.

Claude
volume_up

Sadly, I agree. After we return from the next battle, we'll ask her all of our burning questions.

Claude
volume_up

Rhea is the only one who gets a break, though. Everyone else had better start preparing for battle.

Ferdinand

Ferdinand
volume_up

The history of the Empire spans 1185 years. And just like that, it ends.

Ferdinand
volume_up

But the Hresvelg legacy could live on...

Ferdinand
volume_up

When Edelgard assumed power, there were no other rightful heirs.

Ferdinand
volume_up

She said that whoever takes the throne next should do so by virtue of merit, not blood. And she truly meant what she said.

Ferdinand
volume_up

At any rate, I feel that a huge hole has opened up in my heart. Who knows if it can ever be filled?

Linhardt

link
Linhardt
volume_up

As history proves, everything comes to an end eventually. I knew that all along, but it still came as a surprise.

Linhardt
volume_up

Those who slither in the dark... It's all so fascinating and strange. They must certainly have a long history of their own.

Linhardt
volume_up

And when they fall, that will come quickly too. Don't you think?

Linhardt
volume_up

Heh, that almost sounded like a prophecy there. Am I spooking you yet?

Caspar

link
Caspar
volume_up

He's dead... My father's dead... I'm OK though. Really.

Caspar
volume_up

I was ready for it. He was a general in the Imperial army, after all. Minister of Military Affairs...

Caspar
volume_up

He gave his own life so the Empire's soldiers wouldn't have to lose theirs.

Caspar
volume_up

That's a fight that only he could take on. He was such a tough guy.

Caspar
volume_up

This whole time I fought side by side with you and Claude...

Caspar
volume_up

But did I ever get any stronger? Will I ever be as strong as my father?

Bernadetta

link
Bernadetta
volume_up

With Edelgard gone, maybe Fódlan will finally find some peace.

Bernadetta
volume_up

That's all well and good, but, um...

Bernadetta
volume_up

She was also the one to put my father under house arrest, so now he's been released, and he's taken charge of House Varley.

Bernadetta
volume_up

I can't handle it! I can't deal with him! Please, you have to do something!

Bernadetta
volume_up

Thank you so much!

Dorothea

Dorothea
volume_up

So, the moment we defeat Edie, the nobles cozy up to the Alliance and church...

Dorothea
volume_up

That lot really does think only of themselves, and no one else.

Dorothea
volume_up

But then there's Count Bergliez. He used to be Minister of Military Affairs...

Dorothea
volume_up

He sacrificed his own life so that all the soldiers and officers who fought could be given quarter...

Dorothea
volume_up

When I heard that... I don't know...that simple act of humanity... I couldn't help it. I burst into tears.

Petra

The Empire has broken in...in smithereens. Now it is possible for me to go back to Brigid.

Petra
volume_up

But...I cannot choose that choice. The time is still too soon for that.

Petra
volume_up

We must be stopping the evil for everyone in Fódlan. We will be fighting until the end of it!

Felix

link
Felix
volume_up

I thought that after the Empire fell, the boar might finally be avenged...

Felix
volume_up

But something dark is certainly lurking in the shadows—an organization behind the Empire.

Felix
volume_up

We'll have to take care of them if the boar... if Dimitri is to rest in peace.

Ashe

link
Ashe
volume_up

We've all heard the legend of Nemesis, the King of Liberation. But now Lady Rhea is saying Nemesis was just some kind of thief.

Ashe
volume_up

Those two descriptions are totally at odds.

Ashe
volume_up

Which version's correct? I don't know what to think.

Ashe
volume_up

But I guess that's the nature of history. I wonder what the generations that come after us will say about the battle we're about to fight.

Sylvain

Sylvain
volume_up

This war might be over but not war in general. Human beings thrive on conflict. We can't get enough of it.

Sylvain
volume_up

I don't know when, but you know someday another war will begin.

Sylvain
volume_up

Heh heh... That's the way it is, right?

Sylvain
volume_up

Yeah, but the fight is still worth it.

Sylvain
volume_up

War may always come back but so will peace.

Sylvain
volume_up

And peace is what we fight for.

Mercedes

Mercedes

Lady Rhea still seems weak...but at least she's safe now.

I'm praying that she'll be well as soon as possible.

Mercedes

Goddess...I beg you... Protect Lady Rhea!

Annette

Annette
volume_up

Finally, that awful war is over.

Annette
volume_up

Everyone lost something, and everyone had to make sacrifices...

Annette
volume_up

But maybe we can put a stop to all of this pain and loss now. Let's hurry to Shambhala, Professor!

Annette
volume_up

We have to defeat them if we ever want to see a world without war.

Ingrid

link
Ingrid
volume_up

Is it really prudent to bring Lady Rhea on our upcoming expedition?

Ingrid
volume_up

It would be best not to have her doing anything strenuous, considering how long she was confined...

Ingrid
volume_up

There are still many in Fódlan who are seeking Lady Rhea's salvation.

Ingrid
volume_up

For their sake, we cannot put her in harm's way.

Lorenz

link
Lorenz
volume_up

A mysterious power, threatening the very future of Fódlan? Certainly we cannot give it leeway.

Lorenz
volume_up

In comparison to this, the internal power struggles in the Alliance are utterly trivial.

Lorenz
volume_up

Fear will serve no purpose here. The only path to survival now is victory.

Lorenz
volume_up

There is simply no option but victory! The alternative is unthinkable.

Lorenz
volume_up

Perhaps I will have the opportunity to strike the decisive blow on the enemy commander. That would secure my place in history for certain!

Raphael

Raphael
volume_up

Wake up, eat, train, eat, train, eat, sleep.

Raphael
volume_up

We gotta prepare for the assault, but that hasn't changed my routine!

Raphael
volume_up

All the training...and eating...I do is for the sake of Fódlan! Gotta stay strong...and fed...to keep it safe!

Ignatz

Ignatz
volume_up

Our next opponent is an ally of Solon.

Ignatz
volume_up

Do you remember what Solon called us?

Ignatz
volume_up

No. He called us beasts.

Ignatz
volume_up

That's right. He called us beasts.

Ignatz
volume_up

No. He called us beasts.

Ignatz
volume_up

Meanwhile, he refers to himself as "the Savior."

Ignatz
volume_up

Who exactly is he saving?

Lysithea

link
Lysithea
volume_up

Those who slither in the dark... It seems we'll finally discover their true form.

Lysithea
volume_up

I get the sense that they're in league with the mages who experimented on me as a child.

Lysithea
volume_up

I wouldn't be surprised if Edelgard was subjected to them too.

Lysithea
volume_up

There's no telling what their true motives are.

Lysithea
volume_up

But whatever their motives, what they have done is unforgivable. They must be exterminated.

Marianne

link
Marianne
volume_up

I thought the war would end with Edelgard's defeat... But that wasn't the case.

Marianne
volume_up

This may be premature, but I'm feeling a little relieved.

Marianne
volume_up

I have to consider what I'll do with myself and where I'll go when this war is finally over...

Marianne
volume_up

I don't have an answer yet...

Marianne
volume_up

Let's make sure the next battle puts an end to this war. That way we can all move forward!

Hilda

Hilda
volume_up

"Shambhala" it was called, right? Scary that it's so close to the House Goneril territories.

Hilda
volume_up

Who'd have thought all those creeps were living right under my nose?

Hilda
volume_up

I was hoping my big brother would help us in this next battle.

Hilda
volume_up

But he says that I can represent House Goneril without his help. That I have it in me.

Hilda
volume_up

I'm glad he recognizes that I have some ability. Still, I wish he wasn't leaving it all to me.

Leonie

Leonie
volume_up

These are Monica's people, aren't they? The ones who killed Captain Jeralt.

Leonie
volume_up

Then this is my real opportunity for revenge. There's no way I can back down from this one.

Leonie
volume_up

No, I'm OK. Actually, I'm eager to get out there and fight. This is what I've been training for.

Leonie
volume_up

If we lose, it's the end for Fódlan. So we have to win, even if it kills us.

Seteth

link
Seteth
volume_up

Rhea is sleeping right now. If it is not absolutely urgent, please do not disturb her rest.

Seteth
volume_up

The long confinement took its toll on her health. Truthfully, she is in no shape to be exerting herself at all—to say nothing of a military expedition.

Seteth
volume_up

To make matters worse, we are now facing a very old enemy. One that has conspired against us since time out of mind.

Seteth
volume_up

Please proceed with caution. I have a bad feeling.

Flayn

link
Flayn
volume_up

I am so glad that Rhea is unharmed.

Flayn
volume_up

My brother continues to worry about her, however.

Flayn
volume_up

Of course, I am worried myself. I cannot imagine being in that situation while in such a state...

Flayn
volume_up

She should just leave things to you and Claude and get the rest she needs...

Hanneman

link
Hanneman
volume_up

A mysterious organization, slithering in the dark of Fódlan... Like something out of a midnight tale.

Hanneman
volume_up

It appears these fiends have infiltrated the deepest corners of the Empire.

Hanneman
volume_up

After the fall of Enbarr, they've remained well concealed...

Hanneman
volume_up

That said, I would keep an eye on Edelgard's uncle, Lord Arundel. Something about him sits ill with me.

Manuela

Manuela

I don't know if everyone survived, but it looks like they should be able to mount a revival.

I suspect I may refuse though. We're at the dawn of something new. No reason to look backwards, eh?

You've done it. You did it. You crushed the Empire, and rescued Lady Rhea.

Alois
volume_up

I'm sure the captain is proud of you right now. As am I, of course! I'm as proud as if I'd done it myself!

Alois
volume_up

Sorry. I didn't mean to overdo it.

Alois
volume_up

We still have to deal with Monica's group... Those who killed the captain.

Alois
volume_up

We'll knock 'em down so hard that they can't get back up!

Catherine

link
Catherine
volume_up

We rescued Lady Rhea! I can hardly express my joy.

Catherine
volume_up

But now we know about a new foe, who intends to bring her harm.

Catherine

In time, we'll realize the peaceful world that Lady Rhea has always hoped for. I'll have to keep that in mind when I'm fighting.

Shamir

Shamir

We saved Rhea and the Empire has crumbled. The Kingdom may as well be finished too.

Shamir

The reasons for me to remain in Fódlan are fading.

Shamir

Of course. I've come this far. May as well see it through to the end.

Shamir

That's a little hasty. I've come this far. May as well see it through to the end.

But...things aren't gonna be like they used to be any time soon, are they?

There's still folks out there that want us all dead, and Lady Rhea still hasn't regained her strength yet.

Cyril

Speaking of which, Professor, please don't ask too much of her right now, OK?

Judith

Judith
volume_up

The folks we're fighting next aren't normal humans, are they?

I'm not prone to flinching, but I don't feel great about any of this...

Dedue saw to it that Edelgard was destroyed before he departed.

I can still see Dedue's struggle when I close my eyes...

With our own hands, we'll safeguard Fódlan's future!

I've gotta say, I wish you were a little more fiery about all this.

Balthus

I thought defeating the Empire would be the end of it, but now we're after some mysterious shadow organization? For crying out loud...

Balthus

If only Holst had come along for the ride. But he's working out things with Almyra or something, yeah?

Balthus
volume_up

Even so, maybe we better warn him about those- who-whatever-in-the-dark. They might be whatevering in his neck of the woods too.

Balthus

Me aside, no one's on the same level as Holst. If the Alliance is attacked while he's gone, they'll be in trouble.

Fear is not a consideration of mine. I do what must be done and always have.

Constance

What is frightening is to have scant idea of what is in store. Now that we know, victory shall be ours.
