Byleth enters the scene

Hilda
Wait. What?! Are you really our new homeroom professor?
link
Ignatz
Is that true? You aren't quite what I had pictured... Oh! Sorry! I didn't mean that the way it sounded.
link
Hilda
I was sure you'd be roped into joining the knights!
link
Claude
Don't tell me. You chose this class just to get to know me better, right? I'm flattered, really.
link
Claude
Heh, whoops. Now that you're our professor, maybe I should choose my words more carefully.
link
I don't mind.
link
Claude
Oh? Well, then! Since we're pretty close in age and all, I suppose formalities aren't all that necessary.
link
Lorenz
One must truly marvel at the exceptionality of this appointment. Becoming a teacher to students almost the same age as yourself. How...unusual.
link
Lorenz
I've heard you are a skilled mercenary, but I cannot shake my discomfort at your new position.
link
Raphael
Are you really as strong as they say? Let's see your biceps! I bet I've packed on more muscle than you!
link
Ignatz
I doubt that. Apparently our new professor was personally recommended by Alois, one of the knights.
link
Claude
As far as skill goes, I saw it with my own eyes. What's more, Teach here is the child of the most renowned former captain of the Knights of Seiros.
link
Leonie
I heard! There's no way a child of the captain isn't worthy. It's simply not possible.
link
Lysithea
The captain? Who are you talking about?
link
Leonie
Captain Jeralt, of course! The most notable captain of the Knights of Seiros and a peerless mercenary.
link
Leonie
Hmph! It doesn't matter what you think of him. Captain Jeralt deserves nothing but respect.
link
Lysithea
Hm. Well, after working as a mercenary alongside a father figure such as he, I have high hopes for our professor.
link
Hilda
Just because someone is special doesn't mean their children are special too, Lysithea.
link
Hilda
Assuming that a child is going to be exceptional just because of their lineage is a bad idea.
link
Hilda
Don't you agree, Marianne?
link
Marianne
Huh! Oh... Um, yes. I suppose so.
link
Leonie
Well, we can find out for ourselves in battle. I can't wait to see what tactics you've learned from the captain.
link
Raphael
A battle? Shouldn't we have a welcome party or something first? I'll get the meat!
link
Lorenz
How savage. I propose a nice conversation over tea instead. I am more than willing to procure some high-quality leaves.
link
Raphael
Tea? You can't get to know someone over tea. If there's no meat involved, it's not a party!
link
Lorenz
Your common sensibilities are grating to my noble ears. Please quiet yourself.
link
Claude
Sorry for the bickering, Teach. As you can see, the Golden Deer House is a rowdy bunch. We're not especially unified.
link
Claude
You'll find nobles and commoners alike here. Those who are dedicated to their studies alongside slackers.
link
Claude
But, hey, that just makes your life more exciting, right? I really hope you're looking forward to the year ahead as much as I am.
