Edelgard & Constance

Constance

Pardon, but might you possibly be the Imperial princess herself?

Edelgard

I am. And you are Constance of House Nuvelle.

Edelgard

I recall hearing of your disappearance. I never would have imagined you'd end up in a place like this...

Constance

Your presence is equally curious. What business could you have here?

Constance

Don't tell me it was idle curiosity.

Edelgard

As I believe you are well aware, we were chasing after a suspicious individual.

Dimitri

Dimitri

What do you think, Professor? This is a most... unique town, is it not?

Dimitri

Incredible, really, that those who faced oppression on the surface are able to find sanctuary here.

Dimitri

Oh, not to say that there's no helping the situation in Fódlan. To do just that is our duty and our honor.

Dimitri

Even so, I find the idea...rather lovely.

Claude

Claude

Who knew an entire town was hiding beneath the monastery?

Claude

And a secret fourth house to boot. Secrets upon secrets—oh, I'm just itching to know them all!

Claude

I'm sure Rhea knows all about this place. Gods, how many secrets does that lady have?

Linhardt

Linhardt

Oh. Hello, Professor. Have you seen this library of theirs?

Linhardt

It's completely different from the one in the monastery. And their collection is amazing.

Linhardt

There are forgeries and banned books. Legends, spells, and heresies. Doubt I'll catch a single wink tonight.

Ashe

Ashe

It looks like this is where the people of Abyss leave their unwanted belongings.

Ashe

I didn't expect to find much, but there's actually plenty of gear we could salvage.

Ashe

I'm told we can take anything we can use, so it might be good to check on it now and again.

Hilda & Balthus

Hilda

Heya, Professor! Allow me to introduce you to my brother's best friend. You can call him Baltie.

Balthus

Actually, it's Balthus. You've probably heard of me. In the Alliance, I'm known as a...how should I put it?

Balthus

Heh, something like that. To be precise, I'm known as the Undisputed King of Grappling!

Hilda

Right answer! This guy's notorious for picking fights and shirking debts. He's got a whole army of bounty hunters chasing after him.

Balthus

I may not look it, but I was once a noble from a minor house. Life's full of twists and turns.

Hilda

I know you, Baltie. I'm pretty sure you got yourself into this mess.

Yuri

Yuri

You're not a holy knight, and you don't seem all that special, but you're certainly mysterious, wielding that Hero's Relic.

Yuri

Yeah, I've heard all about you. But I never figured I'd see you down here, chasing after someone and getting lost in the process.

Yuri

The classroom for the Ashen Wolf House. Just so we're clear, we're not affiliated with the Officers Academy.

Yuri

That's right. And so we're clear, the Ashen Wolf House isn't affiliated with the Officers Academy.

Yuri

Since we're not part of the academy, it's really just in place for us. Can't go to the surface either. We've all got our reasons.

Yuri

We're a unique bunch from all walks of life. Once you get to know us, I'm sure you'll love it here.

Hapi

Hapi

Hey, new person. Want my advice? Don't wander too far off the beaten path.

Hapi

Abyssians like their privacy. If you go snooping around, there's bound to be trouble.

Hapi

Wait, did I introduce myself? My name's Hapi.

Abysskeeper

Abysskeeper

Hey, you. Listen up. I've got something to report. It's about you outsiders. Actually... Guess I shouldn't bother reporting you to yourself.

Abysskeeper

The Ashen Wolves may seem tough, but they're harmless. Honestly? Things can get pretty boring down here.

Abysskeeper

But here's a little piece of wisdom from me to you— boredom's a luxury. Trust me. I know these things.

Rogue

Rogue

Want a drink? Course you don't. It's all terrible down here...

Rogue

Nobody important enough to carry the good stuff wants to come underground to sell it to us.

Rogue

It's a shame. Just once I'd like to taste something worthy of a noble.

Rogue

link
Rogue

You're quite a strapping fellow...but even your looks don't compete with the likes of Yuri.

Rogue

You're quite a fetching lady...but even your looks don't compete with the likes of Yuri.

Rogue

Don't let that pretty face of his fool you, though... He's a rogue, through and through.

Rogue

Even so, the people of Abyss trust him. He may be a scoundrel, but he's our scoundrel.

Rogue

Rogue

What's all the commotion about? Hey, hang on... I've never seen you before.

Rogue

You a first timer? Word of advice. Watch your back.

Rogue

The only folks who hang around down here are the ones too shady to walk in the goddess's light.

Elderly Man

Elderly Man

Find someone else to bother. Whatever the heck you're selling, I'm not buying.

Elderly Man

Not a trader, eh? Sorry. My mistake.

Elderly Man

Most folks chatting down here are just pawning off stolen goods.

Mysterious Woman

Mysterious Woman

Abyss is where I offer my prayers to my gods. It is the only place.

Mysterious Woman

The goddess of Fódlan is not one of my gods, but the statue here is not one of my gods either.

Mysterious Woman

I offer my prayers here all the same, because Abyss is where it is allowed.

Boy

Boy

You're from the surface, aren't you? I bet you're real bad.

Boy

My mom says surface people are the worst.

Girl

Girl

I told Yuri I wanted to be just like him when I grew up, and he said I shouldn't ever say stuff like that.

Girl

So I told Balthus I didn't want to be like him when I grew up, and he said I'd grow up boring! What do they want me to say?!
