Byleth, Seteth enter the scene

Seteth
Somehow we managed to capture the Great Bridge of Myrddin.
link
Seteth
To see the Imperial army hold its ground until every last soldier fell... That is true dedication.
link
Seteth
It is clear that Edelgard is not some cruel emperor who holds her people in a vice-like grip. There is something more driving our foes.
link
Seteth
From here on out, our journey will not be an easy one...

Church Soldier enters the scene

Church Soldier
Excuse me, sir! Gilbert is here!
link
Seteth
Gilbert?! What was he doing all this time?
link
Seteth
We had better go and meet with him.

Gilbert enters the scene

Gilbert
So, you've captured the Great Bridge of Myrddin. I'm impressed that you were able to break through their defenses.
link
Seteth
Save your praise, Gilbert. Let's get to the heart of the matter. Why are you here? Why now?
link
Gilbert
I am once again in the service of Dimitri.
link
Gilbert
He was in hiding in Fraldarius territory, where he was biding his time for a counteroffensive.
link
Seteth
Dimitri is alive?!
link
Gilbert
Yes. He was to be executed in Fhirdiad, but Dedue stepped forward to rescue him.
link
Gilbert
I am here today by command of Dimitri himself.
link
Gilbert
We realize that our enemies are the same... and that it may be advantageous to join forces.
link
Seteth
I see. I shall hear you out.
link
Gilbert
We are preparing to advance against the Empire.
link
Gilbert
Will you join us as we march toward the Imperial capital?
link
Gilbert
If that is too much to ask, then at least allow us to freely cross the Great Bridge of Myrddin.
link
Seteth
Hold a moment. We have just finished a fierce battle, and our forces are few.
link
Seteth
To march straight for the main body of the Imperial army and challenge them? It is too soon.
link
Seteth
I am happy to allow safe passage over the bridge, but to lend our aid asks too much of us. Is that not so?
link
Seteth
Agreed. We have just finished a fierce battle, and our forces are few.
link
Seteth
To march straight for the main body of the Imperial army and challenge them? It is too soon.
link
Seteth
If you would be willing to wait a few months, we might be able to offer something more.
link
Gilbert
I am afraid His Highness is not able to stop his advance...
link
Seteth
If that is the case, I am afraid we cannot join you. Please, send our regards to Dimitri.
link
Gilbert
I understand. It's unfortunate that we were not able to secure the help of the Knights of Seiros.
link
Gilbert
Still, I'm grateful that we can cross the Great Bridge of Myrddin safely. Thank you for that.
link
Gilbert
This will be a fight to the death. It is highly likely that we will meet our end.
link
Gilbert
I wish you both the best of luck in the battles ahead.
link
Seteth
And may the goddess protect you as well.
