Emile...

Mercedes
I'm so sorry... This is all my fault for leaving you behind when I left House Bartels.
link
Mercedes
I should have gone back for you sooner...
link
Mercedes
I'm sorry for not being a better sister to you.

Death Knight
Mer...cedes...

Mercedes
Please forgive me, Emile...

Annette
Mercie, we need to go. Now.

Mercedes
Good-bye...

Byleth, Gilbert, Dimitri, Sylvain enter the scene
link
Gilbert
Your Highness, our capture of the fortress is complete.
link
Dimitri
Now the path to the Imperial capital has finally opened to us.
link
Dimitri
Once we have finished cleaning up after the battle, let's have another meeting to discuss our next move.
link
Dimitri
It would be one thing if we were at home or at the monastery, but to waste our resources like that here would be most—
link
Dimitri
Naturally. But it matters not.
link
Dimitri
Consider this... Once this war is over, the mountain of official business on my plate will be even taller. If I can't handle at least this much, how will I—

Kingdom Soldier enters the scene

Kingdom Soldier
Pardon the interruption! We've just received a letter from Margrave Gautier.
link
Dimitri
Very well. I will read it at once.
link
Dimitri
I see... It seems the conflict within Faerghus has at last come to an end.
link
Kingdom Soldier
Yes, Your Highness! The Margrave and the other eastern lords are at the center of it, and are gathering the Kingdom's military forces even now.
link
Kingdom Soldier
They intend to join with the Alliance army and send troops and supplies to the monastery.
link
Sylvain
Whaddaya know... My old man is really pulling his weight. Did he seem well?
link
Kingdom Soldier
Yes, as well as can be expected. He has taken it upon himself to bring order back to our troubled territory while His Highness is away.
link
Dimitri
I am truly in the Margrave's debt. I will be sure to thank him properly at first opportunity.
link
Dimitri
Thank you for the information. Now tell me, did it seem to you that my presence was needed back at the monastery?
link
Kingdom Soldier
Well... I do have a verbal message from the Margrave on the subject.
link
Dimitri
A verbal message? How strange...
link
Kingdom Soldier
The other day, he arrested one of Viscount Kleiman's men. And, well...
link
Kingdom Soldier
The prisoner has claimed involvement in the Tragedy of Duscur. He has implicated his lord as well.
link
Dimitri
Go on.
link
Kingdom Soldier
I was told they would be transporting this man to the monastery along with the troops and supplies.
link
Kingdom Soldier
The Margrave said that regardless of the credibility of the man's testimony, how he should be dealt with was your decision alone, Your Highness.
link
Dimitri
Very well. All that considered, I will return to the monastery at once.
link
Dimitri
Will you come with me, Professor?
link
Dimitri
Thank you.
