They say that things rarely if ever go according
to plan. Still, plan we must.
After all, if we don't effectively force things to go
our way, nothing will be achieved.
How about you, Professor? Are you leading the life
you envisioned for yourself?
Your character must be stronger than most.
That's surprising... But I suppose it's possible you're
telling the truth.
I'm sorry to ask this of you...but I would deeply
appreciate it if you would promise to keep my
association with Edelgard to yourself.
It is a...complicated history, what she and I share.
Professor, you seem unwell. How are you faring?
If you're not feeling well, I'd strongly recommend
Even if I spend all of my time rummaging through
this library, there's a limit to the knowledge that
can be gained.
Apparently, it only contains books whose contents
have been deemed appropriate by the church.
If only Tomas were around. I bet he has some
interesting stories he could regale us with...
What in the world is happening in Remire Village?
I hear even the knights have been dispatched.
I hope it's nothing too serious... After all,
that's where we first met. I have valued
memories of the place.
Need something, Professor?
I was just asking Monica here to be less demanding
of Lady Edelgard's time.
Hey, it's not like I'm bothering her! Sorry for the
Please don't worry about it too much. Nooothing to
worry about here!
Ugh. I wish you would worry about it a little more.
Remire Village... Is that not where you
If you had not been there, something terrible could
Did one of the house leaders know that mercenaries
were staying in Remire Village? I wonder...
It will remain a mystery for now. All we can do at
this point is speculate.
I fear I may become a social recluse soon...
My life consists of wearing a groove in the floor
between the library and the dining hall. Although, I
guess a real recluse wouldn't leave their room, eh?
That would be me if you weren't my teacher, locked
away in my room, reading, napping, never to be seen.
You know I never see Bernadetta outside of class.
I wonder what it is that she does in her room all day.
That's a nice thing you have there, Professor. Don't
suppose you're planning on using it yourself...
Why don't you trade it for this?
Sounds good, right?
Excellent doing business with you, Professor.
Heh, I've always wanted to say that.
That's a shame. But if you change your mind, do be
sure to tell me.
Hey, Professor. Did you see that my father came by
during the Battle of the Eagle and Lion?
He left soon after, but I saw him talking to
I wonder what they could have to talk about.
Yeah, he's pretty important in the Empire. I thought
I mentioned it to you before?
He's the Minister of Military Affairs.
I guess that would make sense. He is the Minister of
Military Affairs, after all.
Still though... I could've sworn those two didn't
What is it? Sorry, I've, um... I've got a cold.
How did you know? My act was perfect.
Alas, 'tis no mere illness of the body, but a malign
affliction of mine soul! So, um, back to bed.
Congratulations on winning the Battle of the Eagle
and Lion. Did you get a special reward?
I certainly feel like I earned a special reward.
Don't you, Professor?
I was afraid you might say that. I do wish you'd dote
on me just a bit more...
This is a place of mysteriousness. I have awareness of
how much difference every part of the world is.
In a place alike to this place, you can imagine
the goddess of Fódlan truly existing.
At times, I miss those places in Brigid. At times...
I am missing those places so painfully.
All this month, His Highness has been going out late
into the night.
He will not speak of it to me. Professor, do you
happen to know anything?
Lord Arundel is here? That may well explain it.
I see. I am sorry to trouble you with questions.
His Highness's headaches have been growing steadily
worse. I would prefer that he retire to bed early.
Investigating Remire Village? Be on your guard.
You know, Professor—the tournament fish, and the
meal we indulged in after the Battle of the Eagle
Why, all of the food I've eaten in this monastery has
been absolutely delectable. Every last bite of it.
Food really is the only thing you think about, huh?
Hardly! I think about all sorts of things.
Oh! Like tomorrow's menu, for instance?
I'm worried about Remire. That affliction is a little
too mysterious for my liking.
I'm pretty sure it's not normal.
Then what could it be?
Wh-what?! Ah! Come on, don't tease me.
But what if it really was something like that? How
could we hope to stop it?
I wonder how Remire Village is faring. Hopefully
we're not dealing with some new epidemic.
It wouldn't be unheard of. Almost 20 years ago,
a terrible plague blazed through Faerghus.
It even hit the capital city, taking the queen consort's
life...or so I heard. The whole Kingdom was in an
uproar over that loss.
The person who saved the Kingdom wasn't a doctor
but a holy woman—the fair Lady Cornelia.
After that, she was awarded the honor of being a
mage in the service of the royal family. She sounds
like an amazing woman, but...
She must be pretty old by now. But hey, maybe she's
aged like a fine wine.
Oh, goodness. Is something the matter, Professor?
You look a little pale...
Please be careful. It's so easy to catch a cold this time
Hello, Professor. What's that you've got there?
Would you mind trading it with me for this?
Oh, thank you so much! I'll be sure to take great care
Oh, that's really too bad. Please let me know if
Hmm... The librarian is always out and about
And just when I had some questions about a book
Ugh, now I'm so curious about where he's gone
off to! He'd better come back soon...
How are you feeling, Professor? You look rather ill,
if you don't mind my saying so.
Are you sick? If so, I would urge you not to push
yourself too hard. Take some rest.
Just my natural talent. Nothing out of the ordinary.
Enough wit, now. You should lie down.
What is that supposed to mean? Never mind.
If you're not feeling well, you should stop
trying to walk it off and simply lie down.
Hey, Professor. Can I get your advice on something?
I just don't know what to do anymore.
I used to think they were the best, but now I can't
even stand looking at them!
But worrying about it won't solve my problems!
What if I can never eat fish again?
Good point, Professor. I think I need to see other
meats right now. Then I can come back to fish
when I'm good and ready!
Ah, Professor! The Battle of the Eagle and Lion was
such good fun, don't you think?
Ignatz, how long are you going to keep harping on
about the Battle of the Eagle and Lion?
Aw, come on, let me gush! Did you see how the
house leaders came together after the battle?
What an incredible thing to witness! Harmony, even
after something so hard-fought.
True. If they can keep playing nice, perhaps there
will be peace in Fódlan after all.
I heard about Remire Village from some of
It's certainly troubling. If it's a contagion, we at
Garreg Mach should be on the lookout as well.
Oh? Well, that's better, but I wonder what the real
cause could be...
Your words are oddly persuasive, Professor. Even if
they're not exactly based on anything.
Good day, Professor.
Well then, I should go.
Um, Professor? It's about that thing you have there...
If it's not too much of a bother, would you trade it
Thank you so much! I'll treasure it forever.
Oh, of course. I'm so sorry. But please let me know if
you change your mind.
Professor! Captain Jeralt just told me.
Remire Village is in a bad way, right?
The situation there is worrying, yes... But tell me,
how is your vertigo?
Were you not feeling OK? You seem fine to me.
I hope you're not just saying that. We can't have you
putting on a brave face only to fall in battle.
Are you not feeling OK? You should get some rest!
Hm. If you must go to the village, make sure you're
in good health before we depart.
What is it? I am in the middle of my daily duties.
I assume you know by now that the
Four Saints are all important figures in the
teachings of Seiros...
Still, I have a particular fondness for
I am so happy to be part of your class, Professor.
I honestly cannot recall the last time I interacted
with others on a daily basis like this...
It reminds me of when I was a child. Ha, that was so
very long ago now...
Oh, I mean, very. Very, very, very long ago.
Despite how young I may appear to you, I'm quite
mature. You may be surprised, you know.
I thought we might make it through last month
in peace, but no. Another incident just had to
arise, didn't it?
If only this debacle had to do with Crests. Why,
I'd have gone and dealt with it in an instant.
Professor? What have you got there? That's—
My goodness, that is just what I've been looking for!
I can offer nothing more than this, but I do ask that
you consider trading with me.
I am in your debt, Professor.
I see... That's quite a shame. Please let me know
should you change your mind.
I know you figure medicine and magical healing are
two ways to do the same thing, but it's way deeper
Medicine is all about preventing infection and
suppressing symptoms with, well, medicine...
That's probably obvious.
But magical healing is focused on closing up wounds
faster, raising a body's vital energy, stuff like that.
Hey, wait a minute. What you've got there,
Please, could you let me have that? Here, I'll give
you this in return.
Fantastic. Thanks, Professor. You have no idea how
happy this makes me.
What? You don't wanna trade? Well, if you change
your mind, you know where to find me.
Professor? Tell me, is this about Remire?
There are more villagers acting strangely
today than yesterday.
Knights have been dispatched, yet...
The underlying cause is as yet unclear, and the most
anyone can do is stand back and watch.
It is most distressing. Professor, what do you think
about all this?
If it were indeed a disease, why would it only affect
the villagers, and not infect the knights stationed there?
In that case, we should strengthen the guards.
If you visit the village, Professor, please...take care.
The goddess?! You have spoken near blasphemy,
and I would suggest a hasty apology!
I'm going to catch me some mighty fish, just you wait
I didn't catch a single fish last month. But this
month! This month!
That's exactly what Captain Jeralt said!
I'm casting my line just as the captain taught me
all those years ago...
You're going with the captain to investigate
Remire Village soon, aren't you?
It feels like so long ago that you two came here...
Of the four or five years since I started here,
this is certainly the busiest.
It was four. I've been here five.
Oh, what's a year here or there? Don't be petty
You count your enemies the same way.
If I take care of them quickly, what does it matter
how many there are? Oh, sorry! We didn't mean to
ignore you, Professor.
As you were saying, it's been a busy year. There
never seem to be enough hands for the work.
That reminds me, do you have that thing? If you do,
we want it.
Want? No. We need it. Give it to me, not her.
Hey now, I'm the one who brought it up. We may
be friends, but that's just rude.
You brought it, Professor? Hand it over and I'll make
it worth your while.
How? You can't even afford your own drinks.
Give it here. You won't regret it.
Excuse me, I asked first. Why don't we let the
Seems the professor likes you better than me.
Thanks! Here's your prize. Maybe I'll let you borrow
it later, Shamir.
Her? What a letdown...
You made the right choice. Here's your reward.
I'll let you borrow it later, Catherine. If you
The knights go out from Garreg Mach to take on
all kinds of other duties.
I'd sure like a job like that one day.
Then again, I don't know... Serving Lady Rhea here
is pretty good.
Professor, I picked this up, but... Oh, hey! It worked
Wanna trade me what you're holding for it?
Thanks, Professor! This is great.
Oh... OK. Well, if you change your mind, and you'd
like to trade me, let me know.
Professor... Do you ever wish you could return to
your life as a mercenary?
I thought you might. Traveling the world, just you
and Jeralt... How lovely it must have been.
Is that so? I suppose you have become accustomed
to your new line of work.
This month's assignment will again take you outside
of Garreg Mach...to Remire Village.
It was in Remire that you first met Alois and the rest
of his order, was it not?
Half a year has come and gone since then.
How quickly time passes...
I do not know why it is so, but being here makes me
feel quite...unwell. I am so sleepy...and a bit...
It is a struggle merely to stay conscious... Are you
feeling the same?
And yet, it feels familiar... As though pulled from
a corner of my memory, from a time long ago...
I simply cannot fathom it.
Why must you be so difficult! I know the entire
contents of your heart and soul, so you should know
there is no fooling me!
Greetings, Professor! Nothing to report!
Oh, except that Tomas departed the monastery
and has yet to return. Consider that reported.
He's been gone for periods of time before and has
always returned, so I'm not too worried. Still...
I wonder what in the world he's doing out there!
Things we can't obtain here are likely obtainable by
way of the underground.
Are you unfamiliar with Garreg Mach's
underground? The place is an absolute paradise
for those who can't stay above ground.
Those Abyssian idiots. All they ever do is
We'd best purge the entire underbelly of
During the Red Wolf Moon, wild monsters make
ready for the winter to come, stirring more than
at any other time of the year.
You are off for Remire Village, isn't that right?
Watch your step on that journey.
May the goddess protect all of you.
When news reached us of the disturbance, ours was
the first unit dispatched to Remire.
We had renowned scholars and accomplished magic
wielders with us. But in all honesty...I was scared
witless the entire time.
For all we knew, it was an epidemic like the rumors
suggested...and rumors aside, that place had an
eerie air about it that chilled you right to the bone.
This...this is my first time working with THE Jeralt!
The legend known across the ages as the Blade
Breaker! And I get to see him with my own eyes!
That means I have to try my absolute hardest!
Hm... You do not look well. Are you sure you aren't
coming down with a cold or some other ailment?
Please visit a doctor, before your situation worsens.
I suppose the infirmary is also an option.
Though when I went there the other day, I was
unable to receive medical guidance, as Professor
Manuela was drunk and fast asleep on the floor...
Remire Village is in Empire territory, but it's still
relatively close to the monastery.
Oh, but you know all about that, don't you?
The story goes that it was in Remire Village that
Alois found you.
I can't shake the feeling that what went down in
Remire Village is something other than a plague.
I guess it's best not to go sticking our noses in it, lest
they get cut off.
Don't go and make me worry about you, friend.
Yeah... I'm definitely worried about them. But I
worry about you getting involved too.
You're looking paler than usual. Stop pushing
yourself so hard.
Whoever you are, it doesn't matter much to me.
But I do advise getting out of here before you get
tangled up in trouble.
Unless you've been sent here under someone's
orders. In which case, I'll happily show you a good
time. Heh heh...
Hmmm. You're that mercenary turned professor,
aren't you? The one who showed up at the monastery
Yeah, you're the one I've heard so much about.
Well, I guess it's fine you're here, then.
You can call me Yuri. You'll want to remember that,
if you ever come down here again.
I hear you partied hard after winning the Battle of
the Eagle and Lion. That a fact?
Fighting... Drinking... Damn. Maybe I shoulda
crashed that party.
Truth is I knew you'd win. Counted on it, in fact.
What do I mean by that? Heh, don't worry about it.
Winning the battle was great and all, but the after
party was a complete letdown.
I guess I get it. There were some younger students
around and all that. But still... What a waste.
We needed some fun juice, that's all I'm saying.
But, yeah, it was still a fine time.
Haven't seen your face before. You're clearly not
from around here.
Ah, you're that new teacher everyone's been yapping
about. And yet...you look younger than me. Weird.
The name's Balthus. Formerly of the Alliance.
News of the affair at Remire Village has reached me.
The situation seems rather dire.
Any threat to the lives of the commonfolk must be
met with swift action.
Ah, you share my views? That speaks well of you.
You have more than a commoner's share of integrity.
Though House Nuvelle has fallen, it is still every
noble's duty to provide for the commonfolk.
Given your concern, would it not be appropriate for
you to depart rather than idling the time away?
And who might you be? Not an Abyssian, that much
is clear at a glance.
A visitor from above, perhaps? With what purpose?
Oh...but of course. You must be the new teacher
specially appointed by Lady Rhea. That is it, yes?
Rumors have been flying underground about you.
Well, then! I am Constance von Nuvelle.
It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance.
Chatterbox, what's wrong with you? Go home.
Good. No offense, but you look awful.
Sorry, I'm not trying to be mean. I'm just saying,
you look awful.
Get some rest, OK? Sleep is really important when
you're feeling down.
Who are you? Wait, shut up, let me guess.
You're...that new professor, right? You just started
teaching up on the surface.
Even here, people have been talking about you.
Not that the gossip got everything right.
I heard you were beautiful, but obviously that was
Hey, Professor. How's it going? Making lots of coin?
I'd love to catch up, but I'm super busy right now.
Working. For money. You understand.
There's unrest everywhere these days. All of my
fellow merchants seem to be endangered.
I hope things go back to normal soon. People need
more to smile about, aside from my great deals.
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.
Mr. Backup doesn't come by anymore—which is fine.
Not incredibly rude or anything. Nope. Juuuust fine.
Hey, you. You're from up top, right?
What business do you have here?
Wait a minute... Ah, got it. You're that new
professor, aren't you? I suppose that means I
have to let you pass.
I guess...welcome to Abyss! This town is full of
rough-and-toughs, so watch your back down here.
Want to help me out with my magical research?
I just need to open you up and have a look inside...
No? Huh, well... Would you lend me a few hairs
Have you ever killed anyone?
But only bad people, right?
Really? Never? Is that true?
You look scary, but you're actually not so bad...
Wanna get your hands on something valuable that
you can't get on the surface?
Fine. Doubt you could afford it anyway.
Money first, friend. How much you got? Ah... No,
let me stop you there. That won't be enough.
Maybe next time. See you around.
Ah, I see. So you are Jeralt's child. You so resemble
I did indeed. I was acquainted with your parents.
I've been wanting to speak with you for a while now.
I am nothing more than a common monk. I knew
your parents...once upon a time.
I've been gone from the monastery for some time
now because... Well, it matters not.
Might I...ask a favor of you?
Do you mind terribly picking up some fresh flowers
to place upon your mother's grave?
I am certain she'd be deeply moved to receive a gift
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.
