Claude

Claude

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

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

Claude

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

Claude

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

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

Claude

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

Claude

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

Ferdinand

Ferdinand

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

Ferdinand

But the Hresvelg legacy could live on...

Ferdinand

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

Ferdinand

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

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

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

Linhardt

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

Linhardt

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

Linhardt

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

Caspar

link
Caspar

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

Caspar

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

Caspar

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

Caspar

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

Caspar

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

Caspar

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

Bernadetta

link
Bernadetta

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

Bernadetta

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

Bernadetta

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

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

Bernadetta

Thank you so much!

Dorothea

Dorothea

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

Dorothea

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

Dorothea

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

Dorothea

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

Dorothea

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

Petra

Petra

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

Petra

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

Petra

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

Felix

link
Felix

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

Felix

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

Felix

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

Ashe

link
Ashe

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

Those two descriptions are totally at odds.

Ashe

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

Ashe

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

link
Sylvain

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

Sylvain

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

Sylvain

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

Sylvain

Yeah, but the fight is still worth it.

Sylvain

War may always come back but so will peace.

Sylvain

And peace is what we fight for.

Mercedes

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

Mercedes

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

Mercedes

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

Annette

Annette

Finally, that awful war is over.

Annette

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

Annette

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

Annette

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

Ingrid

link
Ingrid

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

Ingrid

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

Ingrid

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

Ingrid

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

Lorenz

link
Lorenz

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

Lorenz

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

Lorenz

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

Lorenz

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

Lorenz

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

link
Raphael

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

Raphael

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

Raphael

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

Ignatz

link
Ignatz

Our next opponent is an ally of Solon.

Ignatz

Do you remember what Solon called us?

Ignatz

No. He called us beasts.

Ignatz

That's right. He called us beasts.

Ignatz

No. He called us beasts.

Ignatz

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

Ignatz

Who exactly is he saving?

Lysithea

link
Lysithea

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

Lysithea

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

Lysithea

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

Lysithea

There's no telling what their true motives are.

Lysithea

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

Marianne

link
Marianne

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

Marianne

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

Marianne

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

Marianne

I don't have an answer yet...

Marianne

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

Hilda

link
Hilda

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

Hilda

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

Hilda

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

Hilda

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

Hilda

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

Leonie

link
Leonie

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

Leonie

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

Leonie

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

Leonie

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

Seteth

link
Seteth

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

Seteth

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

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

Seteth

Please proceed with caution. I have a bad feeling.

Flayn

link
Flayn

I am so glad that Rhea is unharmed.

Flayn

My brother continues to worry about her, however.

Flayn

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

Flayn

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

Hanneman

link
Hanneman

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

Hanneman

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

Hanneman

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

Hanneman

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.

Manuela

They even asked if I'd consider making a return to the stage someday...

Manuela

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

Professor! Most of the opera company fled, but they're back in the capital now.

Alois

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

Alois

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

Sorry. I didn't mean to overdo it.

Alois

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

Alois

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

Catherine

link
Catherine

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

Catherine

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.

Cyril

Cyril

Lady Rhea's back! Lady Rhea's back! I'm so happy!

Cyril

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

Cyril

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

link
Judith

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

Judith

It's that group who caused the javelin of light to fall, right? It just doesn't seem like something a human is capable of.

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

Gatekeeper

Gatekeeper

Greetings, Professor! Nothing to report!

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

I don't know where he went off to after that. Maybe he returned home to Duscur.

Soldier

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

Soldier

I don't know why he was so bent on destroying Edelgard...

Now that we've completed our mission, I can only pray that his soul is accepted into heaven to rest in peace.

Merchant

You did it! I never thought I'd live to see the day that the Empire was conquered!

But I guess we still have some enemies left? I'm not well informed, but I have plenty of fighting spirit!

Knight of Seiros

Fighting against enemies whose true nature is unknown is honestly really scary. Still...

Knight of Seiros

If there's a force in this world that clearly means us harm, we have no choice but to fight back.

Knight of Seiros

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

Merchant

Merchant

Count Bergliez, the Minister of Military Affairs, was applying pressure in the west, but he surrendered after the Empire fell.

Slithering in darkness. Unsettling to say the least. You must be boiling to avenge your father though.

You seem pretty calm for what it is we're staring at. Where's your fire, huh?

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

Though, I suppose a lot of time has passed since your father died.

Yuri

I imagine this battle will be a defining moment in history. All or nothing. Let's do this.

Balthus

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

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.

Whatever threatens Fódlan also threatens my dream.

This folly must end now!

Constance

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.
