Dimitri
Fort Merceus...said to rival Arianrhod, the Silver Maiden.
link
Dimitri
Perhaps a head-on siege was a foolish plan, after all.
link
Gilbert
No, you're right that it's the only way. I don't think the Death Knight would have fallen for any tricks.
link
Gilbert
Even if they are denied supplies, they could hold a fortress like this for months.
link
Gilbert
And we cannot discount the possibility that they will receive more reinforcements if our siege is delayed.
link
Dimitri
Yes, my thoughts exactly. Then we have no option but to do the best we can.
link
Dimitri
Say, Professor... In the past, it seemed like the Death Knight took some strange satisfaction from his fights with you.
link
Dimitri
He's an unpredictable opponent. A dangerous one. Please proceed with caution.
link
Dimitri
I have not come this far just to lose you here. I'm serious. Do not be reckless out there.
link
Dimitri
Of course. You were the heart of the Blue Lions, and the same holds true for the Kingdom army.

Mercedes enters the scene
link
Dimitri
Mercedes...
link
Mercedes
So, the Death Knight really is inside that fortress. Dear Emile...
link
Dimitri
I want you to know that no one is forcing you to battle with us at the front lines. I support whatever you decide.
link
Mercedes
Please, stop. We can't have you saying that.
link
Mercedes
You and I are the same, after all. We both have to fight our family for the good of the world...
link
Mercedes
And since that's the way it is, I couldn't live with myself if I was the only one running away from this battle.
link
Mercedes
I will bring Emile back to his senses. I must. I'm his big sister, after all.
link
Dimitri
Understood. Stay safe out there, Mercedes.

They broke through the gates? Guess it's time for an impressive counterattack!

Linhardt
Ugh... How did I get tangled up in all of this...
link
Death Knight
You are finally here...
link
Death Knight
Will death's scythe claim you... Or will I fall to that sword of yours...
link
Death Knight
And Mercedes... Here you are as well...
