Even though it's in ruins, in some strange way, this monastery never truly changes, does it?

Rodrigue
I studied at the Officers Academy when I was young. Those memories come rushing back whenever I return.
link
Rodrigue
What are you doing here at this hour, anyway?
link
Rodrigue
It's the same for me.
link
Rodrigue
I see.
link
Rodrigue
Perhaps you'll allow me to join you...
link
Rodrigue
Much appreciated.

Byleth, Rodrigue enter the scene

I keep recalling my eldest son... He was quite gifted. In fact, he was appointed a knight at the age of 15.
link
Rodrigue
I still vividly remember the day he was granted a sword from His Majesty...
link
Your son... Isn't he...
link
Rodrigue
Dead. He was killed nine years ago in Duscur. All that returned of him that day were his sword and his armor...
link
Rodrigue
After it happened, I said something horrible to Felix. He's hated me ever since...and I don't blame him.
link
Rodrigue
No matter how much you grieve, the dead will never return. No magic in the world can bring them back.
link
Rodrigue
That's why their memory clings to the living like a curse.
link
Rodrigue
The more they were loved, the tighter their hold, and the more suffering they cause...
link
Rodrigue
I fear I am not a strong enough man to scold His Highness for his foolishness.
link
Rodrigue
Right you are... As adults, it is our responsibility to scold him and help him find his way again.
link
Rodrigue
I come off as so self-important, but really...I'm just a failure of a man.

Rodrigue
Since this war began, we've seen countless generals, soldiers, and citizens die. It never gets easier.
link
Rodrigue
Professor... I entrust the young prince, and the future of Faerghus, to you.
link
Rodrigue
I suppose that was a dramatic way of putting it. My apologies.
link
Rodrigue
You are a brave one, aren't you? One worthy of leading the Church of Seiros, I daresay.
link
Rodrigue
You should know that I have no intention of insisting that you take back Fhirdiad.
link
Rodrigue
All I ask is that you continue to rein in Dimitri's manic desire for revenge.
link
Rodrigue
Now then... We have received House Riegan's consent. All that's left is for us to depart.
link
Rodrigue
If we make it through Gloucester territory and across the Great Bridge of Myrddin, we'll be in Empire territory.
link
Rodrigue
You are not afraid, are you?
link
Rodrigue
Ha! No need to worry. Don't you underestimate the power of my soldiers.
link
Rodrigue
Yes. Such is war...
link
Rodrigue
I'm glad you were the one to lead the Blue Lion House, Professor.
link
Rodrigue
I mean that...
