Church Soldier enters the scene

Church Soldier
Emergency! In Gronder Field... There's a... It's...
link
Seteth
We are in the middle of a military conference. Please calm yourself and tell us what is the matter.
link
Church Soldier
Yes, sir! It seems the Kingdom and Alliance armies clashed with Imperial forces on Gronder Field!
link
Church Soldier
Amid the chaos of three armies battling each other out there, the Imperial army was routed!
link
Church Soldier
Edelgard sustained heavy wounds and retreated to Enbarr!
link
Seteth
Well then! I suppose...
link
Church Soldier
Sir! The Kingdom army was also decimated and... His Highness, Dimitri, has been counted among the dead.
link
Seteth
What?!
link
Church Soldier
The Alliance sustained heavy casualties as well. And the whereabouts of their leader, Claude, is currently unknown.
link
Seteth
Unknown? I...
link
Seteth
It must have been a brutal fight.
link
Seteth
Our only solace is that Edelgard sustained severe injuries.
link
Seteth
It must have been a brutal fight.
link
Seteth
To have lost His Highness... How tragic.
link
Seteth
Our only solace is that Edelgard sustained severe injuries.
link
Seteth
It must have been a brutal fight.
link
Seteth
Missing... Let us hope the Master Tactician's great mind is not forever lost to this world.
link
Seteth
Our only solace is that Edelgard sustained severe injuries.
link
Seteth
This is all quite unexpected, but we must find a way to use this situation to our advantage.
link
Seteth
The Empire's main force has suffered a mighty blow. Edelgard will most certainly avoid the front lines.
link
Seteth
Now is the time for us to infiltrate the Empire and aim for the capital.
link
Flayn
But...what will happen to the lords of the old Kingdom and Alliance territories?
link
Seteth
They have lost many leaders and soldiers. I am sure they must be hard at work rebuilding.
link
Seteth
We will foster cooperation by aiding them through the local churches.
link
Seteth
The remaining lords of the Kingdom and Alliance must join together to form one union.
link
Seteth
And you should be the one to lead them... What do you say?
link
Gain support points with Flayn
link
Seteth
Indeed. It is a question for another day. We must focus on our battle with the Empire.
link
Seteth
For now, what is our next course of action?
link
Seteth
Steady now, Professor. First, we must determine our army's next move.
link
Gain support points with Seteth
link
Seteth
We must choose a place within the Empire that will give us solid defenses for our front line...
link
Seteth
That will become the foothold for our invasion of the capital.
link
Seteth
There is one massive fortress that boasts the greatest defenses in the Empire...Fort Merceus.
link
Seteth
But we will stand no chance if we attack by traditional means. We must gather everyone and devise a plan of attack.
link
Byleth enters the scene
link
Dimitri
It has been a lifetime... Hasn't it, Professor?
link
I thought you were dead.
link
Dimitri
Yes... I thought so too.
link
Dimitri
I wanted to slice her throat...but I did not get the chance.
link
Dimitri
I let people die, and yet...I still stand.
link
Dimitri
Rodrigue, Gustave, Dedue...
link
Dimitri
You sound just like Rodrigue.
link
Dimitri
A reason...
link
Dimitri
You sound just like Rodrigue.
link
Dimitri
A way to absolve my sins...
link
Dimitri
Everyone gives such complicated advice, and I can never quite grasp it all. That is why...
link
Dimitri
Professor.
link
Dimitri
I came here to explain my decision.
link
What decision?
link
Dimitri
I have no resources to take back the Kingdom capital, much less to defeat the Empire.
link
Dimitri
And that is why...
link
Seteth enters the scene
link
Dimitri leaves the scene
link
Seteth
Professor! You will catch a cold sleeping in a place like this.
link
Seteth
Is something the matter?
link
Where did he go?
link
Seteth
Hm? I am the only one here. Were you dreaming?
link
Seteth
I can't say for certain that you were dreaming, but if someone did come here to see you...
link
Seteth
That person only wanted you to see their face.
link
Seteth
Perhaps they wanted you to guide them...
