We've managed to invade Empire territory and emerge victorious in our first battle.
link
Claude
I hope to maintain our momentum and push onward to Enbarr, the Imperial Capital.

Claude
Unfortunately, we are not legendary heroes in a fairytale. Our stamina has limits. The longer we fight, the harder the fight will become.
link
Claude
It will take immense effort to secure the supplies and soldiers we need to prevail.
link
Judith
Boy, you better not be saying this is as far as we go.
link
Claude
Of course not. However, the road ahead leads deep into enemy territory. It will be a difficult journey, strewn with hardship.
link
Claude
I can't guarantee that we'll make it out alive. If anyone wants to leave, now is the time to do it.
link
Lorenz
I shall accompany you to the very end. After all, someone must step up to take leadership should you fall.
link
Leonie
I'm coming. The future of my village depends on this.
link
Leonie
Besides... I have to protect the professor. For Captain Jeralt.
link
Raphael
I'm not going anywhere! Because of the Empire, my little sis can't live in peace!
link
Ignatz
We can't leave the future of Fódlan to others. I'm sure that everyone here feels the same.

Alois
The Knights of Seiros will keep fighting the Empire. We won't rest until we rescue Lady Rhea.
link
Knight of Seiros
The Knights of Seiros are prepared to keep fighting the Empire until we rescue Lady Rhea.
link
Cyril
I feel the same as the knights.
link
Cyril
I've gotta rescue Lady Rhea no matter what.

Hilda
So, what—we're all supposed to take turns saying we'll do our best until the very end?

Leonie leaves the scene

Marianne enters the scene
link
Hilda
And what about you, Marianne? What will you do?
link
Marianne
I...I'll fight too!
link
Hilda
Fine, fine. I suppose I'll tag along too... Until the bitter end.
link
Claude
It's an honor to keep fighting alongside such stalwart allies. Right, Teach?
link
Claude
Hey now, when you put it that way, it almost sounds like you're just praising yourself!
link
Claude
I know I'm a great leader and all, but praising me isn't gonna get you anywhere.
link
Claude
All right. Now that I know where each of you stands, I'm going to return to Alliance territory for a while.
link
Claude
I intend to report this victory to the Alliance lords and draw out even more support from them.
link
Claude
Our next battle will be even more challenging, so brace yourselves for that.
link
Hilda, Claude, Lorenz enter the scene
link
Hilda
Hmm... I should write to my brother. He'll want to hear about our victory.
link
Claude
Your brother, Lord Holst? How is he these days?
link
Hilda
Oh, he's doing great. I even got a letter from him before the last battle.
link
Hilda
He wanted to come and join our fight too.
link
Lorenz
What's this? Lord Holst, come here? That would be a most reassuring development.
link
Hilda
Sadly, it sounds like my father was against the idea. They want him to stay in case they need to fight the Almyrans.
link
Lorenz
Their logic is sound. Though it is vexing that the Alliance's greatest general cannot join us on the front lines.
link
Claude
We should be glad that Holst is staying behind.
link
Claude
Almyra aside, there's also no guarantee that the Imperial forces won't try to launch a surprise attack from the old Kingdom territory.
link
Hilda
Um... If you have something you need to talk to my brother about, I'd be happy to send a letter.
link
Claude
No, that's OK. I'm just glad to hear he's doing well. Please send him my regards.
