Edelgard (Recruited)

We must begin our search for Flayn, Professor.

Edelgard (Recruited)

If she ran off of her own free will, that's her business. But that may not be the case.

Edelgard (Recruited)

For her sake, I suggest we assume that she was abducted and begin an investigation.

Edelgard (Recruited)

Who benefits from kidnapping her?

Edelgard (Recruited)

Let's gather all the information we can on anyone who's been acting strangely.

link
Edelgard (Recruited)

Manuela ran off with Jeritza's mask?

Edelgard (Recruited)

Hmm... We'll have to speak with both of them. But where could Manuela be?

Edelgard (Recruited)

Jeritza is likely at the training grounds or in his quarters on the eastern side of the knights' hall.

link
Edelgard (Not Recruited)

Flayn is missing... We should split up and search for her.

Edelgard (Not Recruited)

There isn't a moment to waste. We must find her before it's too late.

Dimitri

link
Dimitri (Recruited)

When I consider how Seteth must be feeling, my heart breaks. We must find Flayn as soon as possible.

Dimitri (Recruited)

There are no signs of her having left the monastery, but we cannot safely rule out any possibility just yet.

Dimitri (Recruited)

I'm wasting precious time standing about trying to think of a solution. I'll survey the monastery and see what information I can gather.

Dimitri (Recruited)

There must be someone who has a clue as to Flayn's whereabouts.

link
Dimitri (Recruited)

What? Professor Manuela ran off with Professor Jeritza's mask?

Dimitri (Recruited)

I have a bad feeling about this... We must find them both at once!

Dimitri (Recruited)

Professor Jeritza will be at the training grounds or his quarters. I believe the latter can be found on the eastern side of the knights' hall.

link
Dimitri (Not Recruited)

I have thoroughly surveyed the entire monastery, and yet I have not found a single trace of evidence that suggests Flayn was abducted.

Dimitri (Not Recruited)

Perhaps we must seek out personal recounts rather than physical evidence... In any case, we must hurry before something terrible happens.

Claude

link
Claude (Not Recruited)

Flayn's gone missing? Where could she be?

Claude (Not Recruited)

If it were an ordinary kidnapping, you'd think there'd be a demand for ransom or something by now. I don't like the sound of this...

Claude & Hilda

link
Claude (Recruited)

No sign of her leaving the monastery, eh? That is, assuming we can actually trust that information...

Hilda (Recruited)

Oh, but I'm sure this space has no shortage of secret passages and hiding spots!

Claude (Recruited)

True. For now, there's not much we can do aside from making a thorough search of the monastery.

Hilda (Recruited)

Let's ask around and see what we turn up. You never know who might have seen something.

link
Claude (Recruited)

Professor Manuela ran off with Professor Jeritza's mask? What could that possibly mean?

Hilda (Recruited)

Well, that's suspicious! Sounds like we should try talking to them.

Claude (Recruited)

Professor Jeritza is almost certainly in the training grounds or his quarters. Where was that again? Oh, over on the eastern side of the knights' hall.

Hubert

link
Hubert

If Flayn has been taken hostage, then we know she is alive. At least for now.

Hubert

There would be no point to abducting her if simple murder was the objective.

Hubert

That's only logical, Professor.

Ferdinand

link
Ferdinand

A beautiful, delicate maiden vanishing into thin air... It is like something out of a book.

Ferdinand

If it were a book, we would have no need to worry! She would be rescued presently by a dashing nobleman.

Ferdinand

Do you have any idea as to where she might be? Where she might have wandered off to?

Ferdinand

That is what I thought! Why I am here, in fact. But she is nowhere to be seen.

Ferdinand

Hmm, the greenhouse. I did not think of that. I will take a look around there later.

Linhardt

link
Linhardt

Flayn? No, I haven't seen her. She's been abducted. Oh, you're looking for her. Sorry, my mind was somewhere else.

Linhardt

I just recently learned she has a Crest. Did you know that, Professor?

Linhardt

If it was a particularly rare Crest, I could imagine Professor Hanneman would have quite an intense interest in her.

Linhardt

Oh, no, I'm not accusing Professor Hanneman of abducting Flayn.

Caspar

link
Caspar

I don't know if she ran off or got kidnapped or what! I just know that Flayn's in trouble.

Caspar

That's it! I can't keep sitting around. I gotta go find her!

Caspar

Now where do I start?

Bernadetta

link
Bernadetta

Uh, Flayn's not in here!

Bernadetta

Ugh, I guess I have to let you in to prove it, don't I?

link
Bernadetta

There. See? No one's in Bernie's room but Bernie.

Bernadetta

Maybe Flayn just wanted to be alone for a while. Have you considered that?

Bernadetta

Come to think of it, where is her room, anyway?

Dorothea

link
Dorothea

Hey, Professor, have you seen Manuela?

Dorothea

I saw her running off somewhere in a terrible hurry.

Dorothea

I wonder if it has anything to do with Flayn's disappearance. Do you know, Professor?

Dorothea

Oh, yes. Didn't you know? She was the senior diva in our Opera Company.

Petra

link
Petra

Flayn was childnapped. That is what you are thinking? And the villain is inside our monastery?

Petra

Hmm. I must have admittance. One person... has been catching my eye.

Petra

Shamir is a knight not like other knights. Her movements are being reminders of... no, they remind me of warriors of Brigid.

Petra

Before she was here, what was she getting up to...

Dedue

link
Dedue

I've heard the monastery is full of secret passages.

Dedue

If there is no sign of Flayn's departure, it is possible that she used one of those.

Dedue

Whatever has happened, I hope she is all right.

Felix

link
Felix

Ah, you're looking for Flayn's kidnapper.

Felix

I can't say anything for sure, but I do have suspicions about Jeritza.

Felix

There's something about how he's handling his blade lately. It seems more...impulsive than usual.

Felix

It couldn't hurt to try speaking with him, at least.

Felix

At this hour, I think you'll find him sparring with Catherine at the training grounds.

Ashe

link
Ashe

I heard something like this happened last year too.

Ashe

Neither the culprit nor the missing student were ever found last time. Some people say it was the work of evil spirits.

Ashe

D-don't say things like that, Professor! I'm sure the culprit is, you know, corporeal. We'll catch whoever it is!

Ashe

I thought the same. Could there be a connection?

Sylvain

link
Sylvain

Ow! Ingrid just about slapped the teeth out of my head.

Sylvain

All I did was suggest that Flayn might've eloped...

Sylvain

Insensitive? I was just exploring possibilities!

Sylvain

I don't know. I was just suggesting things, then suddenly I was seeing stars and Ingrid was yelling at me.

Mercedes

link
Mercedes

Do you really think Flayn was kidnapped?

Mercedes

I have a feeling you're right. We really need to find her, and quickly!

Mercedes

Do you think she ran off on her own? That doesn't put me any more at ease.

Annette

link
Annette

There have been a lot of rumors swirling around lately about a Death Knight who kidnaps people from the nearby town...

Annette

You don't think Flayn was...you know. Do you?

Annette

Whether the rumors are true or not, I just hope our Flayn is safe...

Ingrid

link
Ingrid

To think that Flayn would disappear like this... Seteth must be worried sick.

Ingrid

I haven't got much to go off of, and perhaps it's out of line for me to feel so uncomfortable...

Ingrid

But something has been bothering me for a while about Gilbert. I feel as though I've met him somewhere before...

Ingrid

I also noticed him staring intently at Annette once. Hmm...

Lorenz

link
Lorenz

If Flayn were taken hostage, I expect we would have received demands from the culprit by now.

Lorenz

Perhaps this is not a kidnapping at all. Do you suppose she could have simply run away?

Lorenz

If that is the case, it is unlikely that we will find her anywhere in the monastery.

Lorenz

What could it be, then? What possible motive could there be to abduct her?

Raphael

link
Raphael

I hope Flayn isn't going hungry. If someone really kidnapped her, I'll never forgive them!

Raphael

Now that I think about it, I saw Alois hanging out by the pond not too long ago.

Raphael

He was always getting into trouble for trying to talk to Flayn, you know.

Raphael

It's probably a crazy thought, but I'm starting to worry.

Ignatz

link
Ignatz

I've only ever spoken to Flayn a handful of times.

Ignatz

She always seemed so naive about the ways of the world. I'm worried about her.

Ignatz

Yes, I'm afraid so. I just hope she comes home safe.

Ignatz

Wh-what makes you say that?! This is hardly the time for teasing, you know!

Lysithea

link
Lysithea

Reflecting on it now, Flayn has always seemed a rather odd person.

Lysithea

She appears young, yet there's something about her that seems much older than her years suggest. And she's quite wise, but also surprisingly naive...

Lysithea

Hmm, you might be right. Whatever the case, Seteth seems to care for her more than anything.

Lysithea

A ghost?! Don't be absurd!

Marianne

link
Marianne

Dear Goddess, hear my prayer...

Marianne

Please watch over Flayn... Please protect her...

Hilda

link
Hilda

I bet Flayn ran away. She couldn't stand being held back by Seteth any longer.

Hilda

I can empathize. I know what it's like to have an overbearing big brother.

Leonie

link
Leonie

Where could Flayn have gone? Do you think she's really been kidnapped?

Leonie

I hear Tomas has been going around asking about her...

Leonie

But he's probably just worried like the rest of us.

Leonie

Though it wasn't just Flayn. He was asking about you and Captain Jeralt too.

Seteth

link
Seteth

...

Seteth

That is all I can ask. Please, lend me your aid!

Seteth

You ask the impossible. Oh, Flayn...

Seteth

She would never have left the monastery of her own volition. Why is there not a trace of her to be found?!

Hanneman

link
Hanneman

Young Flayn's disappearance is most troubling.

link
Hanneman

Young Flayn's disappearance is most troubling.

link
Hanneman

What? Who would suspect me? You know what? I'll tell you who. A fool. That's who.

Hanneman

Flayn's Crest, the Major Crest of Cethleann, is rare, but there are others who possess it.

Hanneman

Alas, Seteth would never allow that.

Hanneman

However, while Flayn's Major Crest of Cethleann is rare, there are others who possess it.

Gilbert

Gilbert

Miss Flayn's whereabouts are unknown? I pray she is safe...

Gilbert

We do not seem to have any leads at present.

Gilbert

link
Gilbert

I am one of the suspects, am I?

Gilbert

Well, hopefully I can lay your suspicions to rest. Do you know of my, let's call it...unique situation?

Gilbert

I was once a knight in service to the Faerghus royal family.

Gilbert

If Ingrid believes she saw me before, it was likely in Fhirdiad, the Kingdom Capital.

Gilbert

Annette is... She is my... But no. I would appreciate it, Professor, if you would ask no more.

Alois

Alois

Hey there, Professor. Did you want to talk?

link
Alois

Hey there, Professor. Did you want to talk?

link
Alois

What?! Me, abduct Flayn?! You can't really believe I did that!

Alois

Well, this may sound silly, but...

Alois

I was too scared to even look. I couldn't bear the thought of finding her in its depths.

Alois

Oh, that's just because of my dumb jokes. She says that they're not very good.

Alois

But if I went around kidnapping everyone who said that, the whole monastery would be empty!

Catherine

link
Catherine

Did you hear about Flayn? It's just one thing after another this year, I swear.

Catherine

Some of the lower-ranked knights are searching for her in the town. If they find anything, I'll know.

I see. Well, I'll let the knights know.

Shamir

What brings you here? I'm taking a break.

Shamir

Is this about Flayn? You find me suspicious? Hah.

Shamir

True. Your point being?

Shamir

I was somewhere else. Fighting. Is that a problem?

Shamir

I understand that I don't fit in among the Knights of Seiros...

Shamir

But that hardly links me to Flayn's disappearance.

Cyril

link
Cyril

I can't believe Flayn just disappeared. I don't like it one little bit.

Cyril

Oh, are you here to see someone?

Cyril

Alois and Shamir and all the knights are gonna head into town soon.

Jeralt

link
Jeralt

Because of Flayn's disappearance, all of the knights are searching nonstop.

Jeralt

But we haven't found a single lead. Seteth's face is getting paler by the minute. It's hard to watch.

Jeralt

What's that? You're looking for Manuela? Well, I did pass by her earlier.

Jeralt

She was carrying something. A mask of some sort...

Jeralt

I'm not close to the guy, so I can't say for sure. But come to think of it, you could be right.

Jeralt

Are you feeling all right? When have you ever seen Flayn wearing a mask?

Rhea

link
Rhea

Professor, have you still not found any leads regarding Flayn's whereabouts?

Rhea

I have looked everywhere. Not even the knights on guard have seen anything of note.

Rhea

I, too, care for Flayn. She is like family to me.

Rhea

Yes, let us work together. It reassures me to have you by my side.

Rhea

May the goddess protect dear Flayn until she returns to us...

Sothis

link
Sothis

Oh my... Just one small girl who's gone astray has caused all this.

Sothis

We cannot let this stand. You must do all you can to find out where she's gone.

Sothis

Now ask around to see what information you can find. Come now! No time to waste!

Tomas

Tomas

Is something the matter? I see. So, Flayn has gone missing.

Tomas

I will do what I can to support the search.

link
Tomas

Hm? It seems that you are a bit suspicious of me. Might I ask your reasons?

Tomas

I was away from the monastery for a few years, but do not forget...

Tomas

I have spent more than four decades in total working here at Garreg Mach Monastery.

Tomas

Yet it was not until recently that I learned that Seteth has a sister.

Tomas

It has been two decades since I last knew Jeralt, yet he looks nearly identical to my memory of him.

Tomas

It is only natural to be curious, don't you think? I assure you, there is nothing more to it than that.

Gatekeeper

link
Gatekeeper

Greetings, Professor! Today...there is quite a bit to report!

Gatekeeper

There is a masked individual who has been going into town every evening and not returning until the following morning.

Gatekeeper

You see? Nothing gets past this guard! I doubt it has anything to do with Flayn's disappearance, but... Well, better safe than sorry, I always say.

Student

link
Student

Professor! I saw him! A knight wielding a gigantic scythe!

Student

He was just like the rumors say! All covered in jet-black armor! It was the Death Knight, I just know it!

Student

You don't think he has something to do with Flayn's disappearance...do you?

Monk

link
Monk

I've served here at Garreg Mach in some capacity or another for several decades now.

Monk

But after all that time, even I can't claim to know everything about the layout.

Monk

Searching the entire interior of the monastery is a more difficult task than you may think.

Monk

It makes you wonder who designed such a titanic compound.

Monk

There are fragments of records remaining from its original construction, but none of them name an actual architect...

Monk

link
Monk

This might be the first time I've ever seen Seteth look so worn down.

Monk

If poor Flayn was lured away by anyone...

Monk

I personally think the clear suspect is that miscreant from Duscur. Those people are deceptive by nature...

Knight of Seiros

link
Knight of Seiros

I can only imagine how worried Seteth must be, but isn't mobilizing the entire order of knights a bit...excessive?

Knight of Seiros

I was originally assigned to investigate those reports of the Death Knight in the town near Garreg Mach.

Knight of Seiros

When I think how many more victims that dastard might claim while we're all busy searching for Flayn...

Knight of Seiros

I'm sorry... That was insensitive. We're all under a lot of stress right now. It's important that we find her quickly.

Student

link
Student

The whole monastery has been turned upside down! I wonder if we're still going to have the Battle of the Eagle and Lion next month.

Student

It's a yearly tradition, but with things the way they are right now...it's hard to imagine.

Student

At any rate, I hope they find Flayn soon.

Yuri

link
Yuri

Looking for Flayn? Some knights came looking a bit ago too.

Yuri

I did some of my own hunting but didn't find any promising leads.

Yuri

I even had some of my people search for her throughout the underground...to no avail.

Yuri

Think about it. The monastery is some thousand years old.

Yuri

Who knows how many hidden passageways exist... She could be here...or anywhere, really.

Balthus

link
Balthus

You're looking for someone? Huh. Try asking Yuri. He's good with stuff like that. I'm better at hitting things than finding them.

Balthus

Honestly, I didn't even know Seteth had a sister.

If you figure out where she is and need some muscle, just holler. We all have our strengths. For me, my strength IS my strength.

Constance

Constance

As soon as word spread of Flayn's disappearance, the knights burst into Abyss.

I suppose it's little surprise when there are shady characters always coming and going...

Hapi

Hapi

What kind of scumbag would kidnap poor Flayn?

Hapi

She must feel so scared and helpless right now. I hope she's OK...

Hapi

Not really. I just know what it's like to be in that situation.

Hapi

Wow. I knew you had a cynical side, but that's just morbid.

Hapi

I was kidnapped once, y'know... Hopefully we get her back safely.

Anna

Anna

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

Anna

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

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

Abysskeeper & Knight of Seiros

Knight of Seiros

The investigation may be over, but I thought it best to stay by your side a bit longer.

Abysskeeper

You hear that? Mr. Backup is here voluntarily. I guess that's OK... He's actually not so bad.

Thank you so much. This is just the type of flower she once loved so dearly.
