Byleth, Rhea, Claude enter the scene

Rhea
You... You have come to save me...
link
Rhea
Is this... Is this a dream? I have longed to see you again...all this time... Is it truly you?
link
Rhea
Claude... I can see you have grown into a reliable young man...
link
Rhea
Thank you for supporting the professor, and for rescuing me.
link
Rhea
Surely the protection of the goddess has—
link
Claude
Wait, Rhea.
link
Claude
What do you know about the children of the goddess?
link
Rhea
Children of... What is this about?
link
Claude
Forgive my bluntness. Someone from the Empire filled us in on a few things.
link
Claude
I know it must be painful for us to ask you difficult questions after such an arduous confinement.
link
Claude
But we have no choice. We must defeat a secret enemy... Those who slither in the dark.
link
Claude
Do you know about them?
link
Rhea
Those who slither in the dark...
link
Claude
Apparently, they resent the children of the goddess and the people of the world, and are planning something big. Something terrible.
link
Rhea
...
link
Claude
They use blood for their wicked magic and are capable of dropping javelins of light from the sky, which are powerful enough to crush a fortress.
link
Claude
If you can think of anything at all, please tell us now. We need to know as much as possible about these enemies in order to stop them.

Rhea
...

Claude
This is the critical moment that will determine whether or not Fódlan falls! Can't you see that the time for secrets has passed?!
link
Rhea
It is true that there is a group of people who have slithered in the darkness and threatened the peace of Fódlan since ancient times.
link
Rhea
I am sure you have heard the stories of a man named Nemesis...
link
Claude
Nemesis, the King of Liberation. He's the hero to whom the goddess gave the Sword of the Creator.
link
Rhea
Nemesis was originally the leader of a group of bandits. He plundered the Holy Tomb and stole the remains of the progenitor god.
link
Rhea
When Nemesis appeared in Zanado some time later, he already wielded the Sword of the Creator.
link
Claude
Zanado, the Red Canyon...
link
Claude
According to legend, the goddess gifted him the sword to fight against the evil gods.
link
Rhea
I do not know how Nemesis obtained the sword, or why he appeared in Zanado.
link
Rhea
But he used that sword to massacre the people there. The children of the progenitor god.
link
Rhea
From their corpses he gained even more power, and brought war to Fódlan...
link
Claude
That's completely different from what the legends tell us about Nemesis.
link
Rhea
A mere bandit like Nemesis would not have been capable of anything so monstrous on his own...
link
Claude
Aha! So Nemesis had accomplices.
link
Claude
And those accomplices must have been those who slither in the dark. They used Nemesis!
link
Claude
And this time they used the Imperial army to once again bring war to Fódlan!
link
Claude
I finally get it... And I even understand why Edelgard was associating with them.
link
Claude
Just as they were trying to use the Empire, the Empire was trying to use them.
link
Claude
Rhea, there's still a mountain of things I need to ask you. And I will. But I'll leave all of that for another day.
link
Claude
You must be weak after living in confinement for so long. Please rest for a while.
link
Claude
My friend... Let's prepare for battle. We need to strike Shambhala as soon as possible.
link
Rhea
You must not allow Fódlan's bloody history... the Red Canyon Tragedy...to repeat itself...
