The Battle of the Eagle and Lion... Its name comes from the war in which the Kingdom won its independence from the Empire.

It's imperative that we fight our best. We must live up to the legacy of the King of Lions.

To hold a fishing tournament at a time like this... Participate if you must, but I urge you not to lose sight of our goal.

You have to be proactive and defeat the most opponents. Do that, and it's quite possible the archbishop will recognize how strong you are.

Ah... Great memories. I was a student here many years ago. I know what I speak of.

Along with Flayn, we found another female student who went missing last year.

Knight of Seiros

But now the combat professor, Jeritza, has vanished.

Knight of Seiros
volume_up

His origin begged many questions, so there were plenty of objections to his appointment here.

Knight of Seiros
volume_up

He is apparently from House Hrym of the Empire, but he was adopted from another family. Or so they say...

Knight of Seiros
volume_up

Anyway, there hasn't been much good to be said about House Hrym in recent decades.

The Death Knight's true identity... Personally, I don't think it could be Jeritza.

Squire

He taught me swordsmanship...

Squire

He said I had talent and the potential to get pretty strong.

Squire
volume_up

He was a little scary, of course...but it's hard for me to believe he's a bad person.

Oh, hi, Professor. Have you heard the rumor about the Goddess Tower?

Student
volume_up

Well, there's an annual ball here the month after next, during the Ethereal Moon.

Student
volume_up

They say if a boy and a girl wish for something together at the Goddess Tower on that night, the goddess herself will grant it!

Student

I don't know where the rumor started, but it's a great story, isn't it?

The Battle of the Eagle and Lion is almost here. Time certainly is strange.

Yuri

All this really has me feeling nostalgic. Back when I was in the academy, I took part in the battle too.

Yuri
volume_up

The Blue Lions. Back then, I was living with Kingdom nobility as an adoptee.

Yuri
volume_up

We won the battle by a mile. But how we came to that victory is my little secret.

Yuri
volume_up

Lady Rhea still watches the battle, yeah? Best of luck to you, friend.

I hear I'm free to join in. My heart's full to bursting! My muscles too, but that's pretty normal for me.

This is big, pal. The Legendary King of Grappling's triumphant return. The other houses won't know what hit 'em!

That young lady, Monica...might she be Baron Ochs's daughter?

We're not acquainted, but I have heard tell that the baron has a daughter roughly her age.

Despite my current circumstances, I was born into House Nuvelle, one of the preeminent houses of the Empire. Didn't you know?

Speaking of Baron Ochs and those recent goings-on in the Imperial capital...there's no link there, I trust?

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.

Anna

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

You're wondering where Mr. Backup is, aren't you? Figured you'd want an update. Or report, if you will. He's gone. Other duties or some such nonsense.

Abysskeeper

But he'll be back, right? I bet so... I think he liked this place? Especially the company... We really had something... Hm, he'll miss it. Just you wait and see.

Please, look after Jeralt. She'd have wanted that.
