Seteth enters the scene
link
Seteth
Who is it?! Is that... It's you!
link
Seteth
Yes, it has been... But this is no time for casual chatter!
link
Seteth
I was going to ask you the very same thing.
link
Seteth
After you disappeared five years ago, do you have any idea how dire the church's situation became?
link
Seteth
Where were you and what were you doing all of those years?
link
I was sleeping.
link
Seteth
You slept for five years... In that case, I suppose there is nothing more to say.
link
Seteth
You should know that Rhea also disappeared after the battle at Garreg Mach five years ago.
link
Seteth
Since then, the knights have been fully devoted to searching for her. They have yet to find a trace.
link
Seteth
It is possible. However, the Empire has not made any such statement as of yet.
link
Seteth
Even if that were the truth, there is no way for us to confirm.
link
Seteth
We have searched all over, but we have reached an impasse.
link
Seteth
Unless we do something, our efforts to find Rhea and rebuild the church will be stalled indefinitely.
link
Seteth
Our opportunity to strike back is close at hand... Sadly, we are short on military strength.
link
Seteth
However... Now we have you.
link
Seteth
Do you recall what Rhea told you five years ago?
link
Seteth
She asked for you to take her place should anything ever happen to her. She entrusted you with leading the people of Fódlan.
link
Seteth
Then I beg of you... Please, heed her words.
link
Seteth
I will not accept that. Please...you must lend me your strength.
link
Seteth
It is up to you to lead us and to defeat the Empire. No...to defeat Edelgard.
link
Seteth
There is a very good reason...but it is not yet time to divulge it. Just know that without you, we have no hope.
link
Seteth
It is not for me to do. You are the only one who can rise to this task.
link
Seteth
Someday, you will know why that is. Until then, I ask that you trust me.
link
Seteth
What are you saying? She is tormenting all of Fódlan!
link
Seteth
And you are the only one who can save us! How can you not see that?!

Church Soldier enters the scene
link
Church Soldier
Sir! Bandits have entered the area!
link
Church Soldier
They stole some hidden weapons and ran off!
link
Church Soldier
They're heading for the town, so that might be where they're hiding out...
link
Seteth
Vile thieves! Even with the knights gone, I cannot believe they would dare trespass here!
link
Seteth
This is unforgivable! Come, Professor. Let us give chase!
