Byleth, Claude, Hilda enter the scene

Claude
Good work, Hilda! You didn't do much manual labor, but you managed to rope the knights into helping us restore the monastery.
link
Hilda
Thanks, Claude, but all I did was piggyback on your scheme. I saw your eyes telling me to make some magic happen!
link
Alois, Catherine enter the scene
link
Alois
Thank you so much for your help with the restoration.
link
Knight of Seiros
We appreciate your assistance with the restoration of the monastery.
link
Hilda
Oh please, it was nothing! We're just doing our part as former students.
link
Catherine
I'm told you even routed the bandits. That job should have fallen to us. I'm sorry for the trouble.
link
Knight of Seiros
I'm told you even routed the bandits. I'm sorry... That should have been our job.
link
Claude
Hey, don't think twice about it. We're all allies in the resistance against the Empire, right?
link
Catherine
The church is at war with the Empire, but let's be realistic. Wouldn't it be better for the Alliance to eventually submit?
link
Knight of Seiros
The church is at war with the Empire, but the Alliance is a different matter. Wouldn't it be better to avoid getting involved?
link
Claude
The way I see it, the emperor wants to take over all of Fódlan and destroy the existing order of the world.
link
Claude
I can't see her allowing the Alliance to continue to exist. We're in this just as deeply as you are.
link
Claude
Actually... We were hoping to use this place as a base. The Empire begs to be meddled with, and we're first in line.
link
Alois
What? Why would you want to make your base here of all places?
link
Knight of Seiros
Why would you make your base here?
link
Claude
Garreg Mach is situated in the center of Fódlan, both geographically and spiritually.
link
Claude
We want to secure this location while the Empire is still overlooking it.
link
Catherine
I see. The Empire doesn't see this place as important at the moment because it's far from the front lines.
link
Claude
But if we simply decide that it's ours to occupy, that does nothing to inspire the hearts and minds of the people of Fódlan.
link
Claude
Luckily, good ol' Teach has finally returned to us.
link
Claude
If the professor Rhea entrusted with the Sword of the Creator fights at our side... Well now. That's a just cause anyone could get behind.
link
Claude
What's more, here we are, working alongside the legendary Knights of Seiros. It smacks of divine providence, doesn't it? Can you feel it?
link
Seteth
I have heard what you have to say, Claude. And you, Professor? Where do you stand?
link
Knight of Seiros
We've heard from Claude...but where do you stand?
link
Seteth
Hm. On our own, we lack sufficient military strength. But with the help of the Alliance...
link
Knight of Seiros
I see. We don't have enough military strength on our own, but with the help of the Alliance...
link
Seteth
Hm. We are at a relative standstill, but with the help of the Alliance...
link
Knight of Seiros
We were at a standstill, but with the help of the Alliance...
link
Seteth
The archbishop said if anything should happen to her, that we should entrust the affairs of the church to you.
link
Seteth
If you intend to fight alongside the Alliance, then I will follow you as well.
link
Seteth
Is that acceptable, Claude?
link
Knight of Seiros
Her Grace made it clear that, in her absence, we should entrust the affairs of the church to you.
link
Knight of Seiros
If you wish to act alongside the Alliance, then the knights will follow you as well.
link
Knight of Seiros
Is that OK, Claude?
link
Claude
Of course. I can't think of anything more reassuring than having both Teach and the knights on our side.
link
Claude
Together, we'll stop the emperor and her reckless ambitions!
