Lysithea
Professor? Claude? May I have a moment of your time?
link
Claude
Lysithea, what are you doing up this late? Trouble sleeping?
link
Claude
Anyone would be shaken after such a brutal battle.
link
Claude
If you're having trouble sleeping, you should drink some warm milk. That's a thing, right?
link
Lysithea
Must you treat me like a child, simply because I am awake a bit later than usual?
link
Lysithea
Actually, I can hardly muster any indignation right now. I wanted to tell you that I noticed something odd during that battle.
link
Claude
What was it?
link
Lysithea
There were some strange mages among the ranks of the Imperial army. Did you notice them?
link
Lysithea
That's right. I have seen people dressed just like that before.
link
Lysithea
It was a long time ago...
link
Lysithea
House Ordelia was involved in a rebellion that took place within the Empire 18 years ago.
link
Lysithea
After it was quelled, all of the key officials were caught and put to death.
link
Lysithea
The Empire sent replacements, who they used to take control of House Ordelia.
link
Lysithea
Among the people sent by the Empire were mages dressed in black, just like those we saw in battle.
link
Claude
If they're Imperial mages, it makes sense that they would wear the same clothing, right?
link
Lysithea
Yes, but the mages from back then and today... I do not believe they are from the Adrestian Empire.
link
Lysithea
No. I got the impression that they were from somewhere else. Somewhere completely separate from Fódlan.
link
Lysithea
There's more. Those mages imprisoned the children from my house, and performed horrible rituals on them. Blood experiments.
link
Claude
Lysithea... You can't mean...even you?
link
Lysithea
Yes. All of the others were deemed failures. They all died.
link
Lysithea
And even I...
link
Lysithea
It doesn't matter. The point is that those monsters possess dreadful knowledge and power.
link
Lysithea
I just thought you should know the sort of people who have allied with the Empire.
link
Claude
Blood experiments... Does that remind you of anything, Teach?
link
Claude
Exactly. There was that secret group who abducted Flayn and extracted her blood five years ago.
link
Claude
Exactly. There was that secret group who abducted Flayn and extracted her blood five years ago.
link
Claude
The people involved back then were Tomas and Monica... Well, I suppose their true names were Solon and Kronya.
link
Claude
So that eerie group has been slithering behind the scenes in the Empire for a while now...
link
Claude
Lysithea... Thank you for sharing all of that with us. One day we will uncover the truth of who those people really are.
