Byleth, Claude, Leonie enter the scene

Claude
We've made it this far... Somehow.
link
Claude
Edelgard is probably looking down on us from somewhere in that castle.
link
Leonie
I wonder if she's panicking or just smiling smugly...
link
Claude
From this point on, she'll be giving it her all too. Expect her to be tougher than the last time we fought.
link
Claude
This battle will settle things once and for all. We'll attack as soon as everyone is ready.

Dedue enters the scene
link
Claude
Huh? Is that you, Dedue?!
link
Dedue
I heard the Alliance's army had entered the city. I've been searching for you ever since.
link
Dedue
I arrived not long after the battle at Gronder Field. I am here to kill Edelgard.
link
Dedue
I'm waiting for a chance to kill Edelgard. I have not yet been blessed with the opportunity.
link
Claude
Well, if you want to fight alongside us, we'd be more than happy to have you.
link
Dedue
We fight for different objectives. I swore to offer Edelgard's head to His Highness.
link
Dedue
But... Should I fail, I will have no choice but to entrust that mission to you.
link
Dedue
This is the information I have gathered during my time in hiding here. It includes details about the inside of the castle.
link
Claude
I appreciate this, but... What do you plan to do? Don't tell me you plan to go alone?
link
Leonie leaves the scene
link
Dedue
I've done what I came here to do. Farewell.
link
Dedue leaves the scene
link
Claude
Hey! Wait!
link
Claude
He's gone. He's just as hard to understand as his liege was.
link
Byleth, Claude enter the scene
link
Claude
The time has finally come, my friend. Once we win this fight, the Empire will fall...
link
Claude
What will become of it? Well, that's for us to decide, isn't it?

Claude
The subject is heavy on my mind.
link
Claude
Odd as it sounds, I believe the forces responsible for destroying Fódlan are also responsible for protecting the livelihood of its citizens.
link
Claude
Everything, even the land itself, has been harmed by the chaos of war. Restoring it will be no easy feat.
link
Claude
To do that, the first thing we need to think about is a new ruling system for all of Fódlan.
link
Claude
No, I don't think that would work. The western half of the continent has little connection to the Alliance.
link
Claude
Any attempt to force dominion on them would breed rebellion. The world would slide back into war once again.
link
Claude
As usual, we're on the same page. I was thinking the same thing.
link
Claude
Even if the Alliance lords and any remaining influential nobles were to divide up dominion of all of Fódlan...
link
Claude
They would simply pursue their own interests. Another war would be inevitable.
link
Claude
That's why there needs to be a powerful ruler who stands above them all and unifies Fódlan as one nation.
link
Claude
If it means I can lead Fódlan to a better future, I wouldn't mind that at all.
link
Claude
A new ruler, huh? I think I've got someone in mind.
link
Claude
My friend... Do you really mean that?
link
Claude
My dreams await in a future where Fódlan is no longer ravaged by war.
link
Claude
There are things I want to see with you some day. I'll keep thinking about the best way to achieve that goal.
link
Claude
Whatever we decide to do, we can't do it until we defeat the Empire.
link
Claude
Fódlan can't welcome a new dawn until we win the war. Let's prepare as best we can.
