Byleth, Claude enter the scene
link
Claude
It's over. We were only able to beat her because of you.
link
Claude
This wasn't the conclusion I had hoped for. Even though... I... Never mind. It's over now.
link
Claude
The important thing is that we won.
link
Judith enters the scene
link
Judith
Here, boy. A letter. An Imperial general asked me to give it to you.
link
Claude
A letter? Let's see it.
link
Claude
It looks like it's from...Hubert. Edelgard's vassal.
link
If you are reading this letter, that means I have perished. As Her Majesty would never surrender to another, I can only assume she has fallen as well.
link
It greatly pains me to think of this coming to pass...
link
That said, as the survivors, I must ask you to settle certain affairs in our stead.
link
You must destroy the threat that slithers in the dark.
link
I am sure you must recall Monica and Tomas. Their allies yet live.
link
They hold deep resentment against the children of the goddess and the people of the world, and they are biding their time until they can exact revenge.
link
If left to their own devices, it is certain they will eventually bring unimaginable calamity and suffering to the world.
link
I detected their sorcery when you took Fort Merceus.
link
I have deduced the location of their stronghold, Shambhala. You will find its whereabouts enclosed.
link
There is no question that they are the enemies of everyone in Fódlan. Do not allow yourselves to forget that.
link
Lastly... While I cannot say she is in good health, the archbishop resides in a secret chamber in the Imperial palace.
link
I have shared the location of the entrance to that secret chamber with the person to whom I have entrusted this letter.
link
I believe that Her Majesty will be victorious... Even still, I must plan for her defeat as well.
link
If you wish to lead this world, I challenge you to rise to the occasion and surpass my estimation of you.
link
Such is your obligation as the victors...and the only fitting tribute to all that Lady Edelgard sacrificed.
link
Claude
Hubert... To leave a letter like this behind...
link
Claude
You were a better man than I believed you to be.
link
Claude
So, Rhea is alive. And the fight isn't over yet.
link
Claude
Those who slither in the dark... It sounds like Fódlan will never know peace unless we defeat them.
link
Claude
The allies of Monica and Tomas... Well, we knew about them already.
link
Claude
I think it's safe to assume this is the same group who used Lysithea for their blood experiments.
link
Claude
And they were also responsible for the javelins of light that destroyed the fortress.
link
Claude
But who are these "children of the goddess," who they supposedly resent?
link
Claude
There's just not enough information here. I don't suppose there's any chance that this is his idea of a prank... If so, wow. Good one.
link
Claude
Hubert... Rather than writing a letter, you should have just told us before we fought...
link
Let's ask Rhea about it.
link
Claude
Right. We still don't know for sure if this letter is telling the truth. Let's go find out.
