Byleth enters the scene

Sothis
"Day 5 of the Garland Moon, Year 1157. Clear skies. I picked some flowers for her and returned home."
link
Sothis
"The look of joy on her face at the sight of these flowers will be even more beautiful than the flowers themselves..." Yeesh! That is enough.
link
Sothis
His entries from before your birth are full of such romantic blatherings as that.
link
Sothis
Oh... It must be deeply moving you to hear such things, but now is not the time for whimsy. Someone is here.
link
Sothis
You do not wish for them to see you in this state. So pull yourself together!

Claude enters the scene
link
Claude
I thought I might find you here, Teach.
link
Claude
Not the type to wallow in solitude, eh? That's a relief, let me tell you.
link
Claude
So... What were you reading?
link
Claude
Is that Jeralt's...
link
Claude
So it is.
link
Claude
The contents are certainly bittersweet... But I think it's Jeralt's diary.
link
Claude
Hey, maybe this has some entries from when Jeralt left the monastery.
link
Claude
Is that so...
link
Claude
He was the captain of the knights, but something made him leave the monastery in a hurry.
link
Claude
If it has something to do with your birth, knowing what happened may get us closer to knowing what secrets the church is hiding...
link
Claude
Teach... Would you mind letting me read that diary?
link
Claude
I know how important it is to you, but I'm not asking lightly. Please, allow me to borrow it.
link
Claude
I'm forever in your debt, Teach. If you'd refused, I would've had to sneak in here in the dead of night. I wasn't looking forward to the prospect.
link
Claude
Wait, are you really saying I'm going to have to sneak in here in the dead of night to read it?
link
Claude
Anyhow, let me fill you in on what's been going on lately, and not just as thanks for pointing me to that diary.
link
Claude
Rhea dispatched the knights to various locations in a frantic search for the enemy.
link
Claude
There's a rumor that she's already secured some information. Something big is gonna happen soon.
link
Claude
That has me wondering... If you find out where the enemy is, what will you do about it?
link
Claude
If you ask, I... No, scratch that. All of us students would gladly lend a hand.
link
Claude
Even if that means going against Rhea's wishes. Don't forget it.
link
Claude
Now go. Everyone's worried about you. You'd better show them you're in good spirits.

Claude leaves the scene

Monica, Thales, Flame Emperor enter the scene
link
Monica
Oh, thank you. You saved me!
link
Thales
If you were to die, then the mystery of our bodies would be revealed. Preventing that was my only aim.
link
Thales
I'm afraid you must remain, Kronya. There is something I need you to do.
link
Monica
Oh, of course. I am always happy to cooperate with Solon. Leave it to me.
link
Flame Emperor
How annoying.
link
Thales
Flame Emperor... Is she offending you? Unfortunately, we cannot take our eyes off her, so there is nothing to be done.
link
Thales
You are our greatest creation. We used the defiled beast's blood as the fuel to your flame, that you may burn even the gods.
link
Thales
Now is the time to cleanse Fódlan with that power, and bring forth our salvation.
link
Flame Emperor
There will be no salvation for you and your kind.
link
Flame Emperor
Those responsible for such gruesome deeds in Duscur and Enbarr.
link
Thales
All so that you may acquire the strength you need. All for a purpose...
