The descendants of the Four Apostles... Fascinating.

Edelgard

To think that their bloodlines carried on in secret. Right under our noses, one was even disguised as Imperial nobility...

Edelgard

House Nuvelle was thought to be descended from Saint Macuil, but that was a fabrication.

Edelgard

How did they manage to avoid detection for so many generations?

The lost Crests... Aelfric's objective... Since our journey's outset, the mystery has only deepened.

Dimitri

Ah, please forgive me. Musing aloud isn't going to get us anywhere.

Dimitri

For now, let's finish our preparations. I fear a battle is imminent.

Those lost Crests... They must all have their own Relics, don't you think?

Claude

Eh, but before we dig into a new mystery, we'd better figure out the ones we're already working on.

Claude

I have a theory, but... Actually, scratch that. No use guessing when our answers await at the chapel ruins.

Huh. I can't believe my wild hypothesis was correct. I may not look it, but I'm shocked.

Linhardt

It's like casting a line and thinking you've landed the Big One...but then you reel it in, and it's Seteth.

Linhardt

OK, that was a weird analogy. The point is I'm very, very shocked.

Ashe

To be honest, I'm surprised Lady Rhea was so willing to just...hand over the chalice like that.

Ashe

Doesn't the church consider it important?

Ashe

I know she said they wouldn't be able to use it, but something doesn't feel right.

Hilda

Hilda

We go to all that trouble bringing Lady Rhea a priceless artifact, and not so much as a thank-you?

Hilda

We had to release the binding and everything. Well, I mean, it kind of released on its own—but still!

Hilda

Let's wrap this up and head home so I can get some quality sauna time. Hilda needs a steaming.

I suppose it's all out in the open. Now you know just what I'm capable of.

Yuri

The church would have destroyed me ages ago if it wasn't for a certain someone having my back.

Yuri

My life was spared... It's a debt I intend to pay, no matter the cost.

Balthus

Ah! My head's gonna explode if I keep thinking about all this complicated junk.

Balthus

For now, we just need to focus on rescuing Aelfric and sniffing out some answers.

Balthus

I know it's been one crisis after another, but you're still game to help us, yeah? We need you, pal.

Is Aelfric an enemy or an ally?

Constance

He's worked tirelessly to protect Abyss for years and years.

Constance

Yet had House Nuvelle not met such a terrible fate, I would never have come to Garreg Mach.

Constance

And Noa's bloodline would never... Can his kidnapping really be a simple coincidence? Or...

The Four Apostles... Finally, it makes sense.

Hapi

I never understood why my village was hidden away from the rest of the world.

Hapi

But now I finally get it. What a relief.

Hapi

You don't even know what I was going to say. Nobody likes a faker.

Abysskeeper

Abysskeeper

Hey, you. Listen up. I've got something to report. Guess that's pretty usual here. Maybe it's not worth reporting? Perhaps I should say...nothing to report?

Abysskeeper

Nah. Tried it on, doesn't feel right. In any case, about Master Aelfric... Bring him back to us, OK?

Abysskeeper

For my part, I'll look after things down here. If our enemy shows up, I'll stay by my post! I mean, I have to eat and stuff, but I'll come right back. Count on it.

Rogue

Rogue

Maybe you think this is a bad time to talk about what we drink down here... But I'm gonna anyway.

Rogue

See, the problem isn't in the local ingredients. It's what's getting shipped in that's the issue.

Rogue

With the right equipment, we could probably make our own. Cut out the need to import anything... Hell, maybe we could even export some of it!

Rogue

As soon as Aelfric's back, I'm gonna see what he thinks of the idea.

Rogue

So, uh...make sure Aelfric comes back safe, all right?

Rogue

Rogue

If the church knows that Aelfric's been abducted, why haven't the Knights of Seiros done anything?

Rogue

I know you're all doing your best. I just hope it'll be enough.

Rogue

We can't afford to lose him.

Rogue

Rogue

Yuri somehow always keeps his cool.

Rogue

He's closer with Aelfric than anyone, so he's got the most reason to be upset...

Rogue

I'm sure he's just really good at hiding the same feelings we're all having.

Elderly Man

Elderly Man

If Aelfric dies, Abyss'll go right back to being the garbage dump it was before.

Elderly Man

Won't matter too much for an old codger like myself, but... Ah, but the kids...

Elderly Man

It'd be hard to see their hopes for the future crushed.

Mysterious Woman

Mysterious Woman

There is danger here because we could be attacked. But the same danger is there for me on the surface.

Mysterious Woman

The only way to leave the danger is to disappear.

Boy

Boy

It was surface people who took Aelfric away. But you're from the surface too.

Boy

Maybe only...some surface people are the worst. Anyway, good luck!

The Ashen Wolves can take on anything.

Girl

They'll make sure it all turns out OK, won't they?
