Byleth, Claude, Lorenz, Hilda, Judith enter the scene

Claude
Preparations are complete. Now it's a game of patience. As they say, good things come to those who wait.
link
Lorenz
Care to elaborate on this plan of yours, Claude? Can we really do this without battling my father?
link
Hilda
Any chance you can explain this brilliant plan to us?
link
Claude
Pretty soon, Count Gloucester will need to gather his troops in the northern part of his territory.

Claude
The Kingdom has experienced constant infighting since the coup. They're out of the picture for now.

Claude
You got it, Teach!

Judith
The combined forces of the Riegan and Daphnel houses will threaten the northern part of the Gloucester territory.
link
Judith
Nardel, that retainer I mentioned, is going to draw their attention.
link
Claude
We'll take that opportunity to make our way through Gloucester territory and launch a surprise attack on the Great Bridge of Myrddin.
link
Lorenz
And...are you not concerned about the possibility that I may tip off my father?
link
Claude
The future of the Alliance rests on this battle. I'm certain you won't betray us.
link
Lorenz
Hmph. I will ensure our success.
link
Claude
I know you will.

Claude
If we can win this fight, then our next goal will be to topple Enbarr, the Imperial Capital.
link
Claude
I said before that my plan was to meddle with the Empire, but I'm going to do you one better.
link
Claude
We are going to defeat the Empire, once and for all.
link
Claude
But to do that, we can't afford to slip up here. Bear that in mind and prepare yourselves for the coming battle.
