Sothis
You... How long do you intend to sleep?
link
Sothis
Your body is awake. Your eyes must open now, and you must find the strength to stand upon those legs of yours.

Sothis
Like so much rain, a pool of blood has fallen to the ground... As spears and arrows pierce the earth, it weeps. And even now...it weeps.
link
Sothis
In order to survive, they kill. And so, the people of this world are lost in an abyss of suffering. They weep as well.
link
Sothis
The only one who truly knows the nature of such things is I... Or rather, you.
link
Sothis
You are a complete and utter fool! Have you not changed one bit?!
link
Sothis
Excuse me?! Are you saying you have forgotten who I am? How dare you!
link
Sothis
Get on your feet. Right now! I'll coddle you no more! You are just like a child, always needing me to hold your hand...

Villager
Hey! A-are you awake?
link
Villager
We're in a village at the base of the monastery. What are you doing in a place like this?
link
Villager
I'm just a villager here. What are you doing in a place like this?
link
Villager
I honestly didn't expect to find someone floating away down the river...
link
Villager
Garreg Mach is upstream of here, but that place was abandoned.
link
What do you mean?
link
Villager
Huh? You don't know? The Church of Seiros isn't there anymore.
link
Villager
Though there have been some folks still living there in the five years since... Well, you know.
link
Villager
Anyway, I've heard some thieves have been spotted around those parts these days.
link
Villager
Um, are you feeling all right? You didn't hit your head or anything, did you?
link
Villager
It's the Ethereal Moon of the year 1185. It's been nearly five years since the monastery fell.
link
Villager
Tomorrow was supposed to be the millennium festival, but who's got time to think about things like that?
link
The millennium festival...
link
Villager
Uh, yeah, that's what I said. But with the war and the archbishop still missing and all...
link
Villager
I doubt there's a soul to be found who has enough blessings worth counting.
link
Villager
Hey! Slow down, will ya? Where do you think you're going?
link
The monastery.
link
Villager
Are you crazy?! I told ya! They say thieves are running amok up there, and there's plenty of other dangers too.
link
Villager
I heard a rumor that Imperial troops went up there to investigate and got slaughtered. Every last one!
link
Villager
Come on, I promise I won't say you're a coward. Just forget about going anywhere near the monastery.
link
Villager
You just remember I tried to stop you, got it? It's not on my conscience if you wind up dead!
link
Villager
Students? You really are crazy, aren't you? There aren't any kids anywhere near that place anymore!

Byleth leaves the scene

Villager
Unbelievable...
